    Description:
    Surrounded by thousands of screaming Pokémon fans, the ASB Arena can be best described as a standard Pokemon battling arena. In the centre of the arena lies a dirt-based floor outlined to show two separate sides (with a white Poké Ball centre). Surrounding the dirt is a moat filled with water. The moat is about 4.5m wide & creates a perimeter around the dirt arena. The arena itself is 24m wide, 33m long. All moves, weathers, and abilities are legal for the match, since it is an outdoor arena with a large water source & packed dirt. Pokémon must stay in the arena (or the dimensions of the arena in the case of Flying Pokémon, who cannot leave the arena & cannot fly higher than 18m). This prevents Pokémon from injuring the crowd watching the tournament. There are no outside interruptions by fans, Pokémon, or other elements not associated with the current battle.

    We find ourselves in round one of this third (and hopefully more successful) ever ASB tournament. With the Factory format putting all players on a equal footing we have ASB mainstay Ragnarokalex facing off against relative newcomer LockDown. After having just barely snuck in as the very last of the substitutes LockDown has managed to snag himself the much coveted Contrary Serperior. However the regal snake might be in a spot of bother here with both Lapras and Camerupt holding powerful STABs on it. I'm sure Slowbro should have a thing or two to say about that volcanomon though. Rounding out the teams are two Gen I powerhouses in the speedy yet fragile Alakazam and Gengar. The sheer fact that Gengar is available in this tournament may baffle many long standing ASBers, as the thing was considered near uber in the early stages of the game and many a measure was taken to nerf it. We shall soon see if Gengar is able to live up to this billing but as always it may just all come down to match ups so why don't we go ahead and decide the first. The coin's already in the air with her majesty QE2 (heads) denoting Alex sending olut first while that cute and cuddly platypus (tails) will mean LockDown needs to start us off.

    I don't know why exactly I was so concerned with Gengar when there's a 120 HP behemoth entering the field with a Gem to back up one of the most powerful attacking STABs in the game! Verdi starts off by Taunting Lapras into attacking, but as if he had any other plans anyway. The ferry Pokemon launches an Ice Beam which is backed by the very Gem I mentioned and even manages to crit for extra bite. Serperior then goes for its go to move, but unfortunaly LockDown made a rookie error and forgot to activate Contrary! This means Verdi is left to suffer like every other normal mon after expending its Leaf Storm and has its Special Attack drop pretty badly. Lapras is going for the strongest attack in his arsenal too as a Blizzard engulfs the ASB arena and stings the grass type harshly. Verdi is only going to get one more blow in this round and unfortunately the prior mistake means that while the Metronome he's holding boosts the second Leaf Storm the effects of the first one lessen it's damage. Oh and damage is exactly what Lapras is serving up with its Super Ice Beam! The hit more than knocks out Sererior and gives Alex a massive early advantage. Unfortunately its also going to leave Lapras wide open to start next round. Hopefully the risk is worth it but as it does seem that LockDown's biggest threat has been neutralized and Lapras is still looking pretty beefy.

    After Verdi was so quickly and humiliatingly dispatched off LockDown opts to answer water with water in sending out Slow Trap the Slowbro. She even comes out holding onto half a battery which should protect her from some of Lapras' coverage. In fact Slowbro brought some utility of her own as she trips up the huge sea beast with a Grass Knot. But Lapras immediately shows that Gen I is stupid but beginning to take in sunlight in preparation for a nonsensical attack. Of course the delay in having to charge the move allows Slow Trap to call forth some Rain to ensure that the Solarbeam isn't able to reach its full power. Even though the rain would boost both of the mons STABs they opt to continue displaying their wide array of moves. Or at least Lapras does as she sends a multi coloured beam the way of the part Psychic type for respectable damage. Slow Trap on the other hand just recycles the same old Grass Knot, but I would too when it's doing damage like that!

    LockDown looks to have clawed back an ounce of respectability here, but he's definitely still behind the 8 ball.

    well i guess this is EXACTLY enough to do successfully :x

    Substitute 15 - Signal Beam - Signal Beam+Signal beam


    (Also btw signal beam has 8 Base Power, so Slowbro should 2 less HP)

    Lapras is looking weakend for sure but he knows his job here isn't done yet. The Transport Pokemon starts off by making a Substitute to abuse a bad substitution from LockDown and watch as Slowbro basically wastes an action with a Confusion attack that is far too weak to break even the smallest conjurable substitute. Lapras is then able to safely launch another Signal Beam from behind its doll before Slow Trap obliterates it with a Grass Knot attack. In another confusing turn of events LockDown now instructs his Slowbro to forget all about KOing the now wide open Water type and instead goes ahead and gives it some virtually useless Toxic poisoning. Lapras has no misconceptions about sticking around for the Toxic to matter and just as Alex said he has just enough energy left to ensure his Super Signal Beam goes off for some great damage to Slowbro before the behemoth finally faints from total exhaustion. Albeit after he's damn near taken out two of LockDown's Pokemon. No prizes for guessing who Ragnarok sends in next either.

    As was to be expected Alex sends out his Gengar to see how this simultaneous type advantage and disadvantage plays out. Of course any disadvantage is mitigated greatly by what is basically a Gengar's pet item in the Enigma Berry she carries. I swear everyone in this tournament got useful items except for me.. Anywho Gengar wastes no time in getting to work with a Shadow Ball that strikes true on Slow Trap, all but seeing the end of the dim witted one. Slowbro didn't like that at all and Disables the move from further use. LockDown then once again shows his inexperience in uselessly attempting to Teleport away from Gengar's incoming Shadow Punch. Of course the punch has perfect accuracy and the effort is all in vain. Slowbro is most definitely KOed and now it's all up to Alakazam to try and stand up to two perfectly healthy opponents. I don't think it will go all that well.

    The Alakazam with a long arse name hits the field and immediately Taunts Gengar to remove the chance of any of his tricks coming out. Really at this point of the match it's just about the fastest way to remove those 90 remaining HP. Unfortunately for Alex, LockDown has also made that a little difficult, between Disabling Shadow Ball and that strangely useful berry that Quantum is carrying. Never the less a Dark Pulse from Gengar still hits hard enough. Quantum responds by making a joke out of Gengar's laughable defence stat with a critical Psyshock. Of course this does allow Gengar to nibble on some of it's own berry. The HP recovery continues as a Giga Drain is sent Alakazam's way and wouldn't you know this also hits critically. In fact my RNG is going a little spastic because QP's final Psychic assault continues the veritable sea of crits , but between the Enigma Berry and a well selected draining move Gengar's net HP loss for the round doesn't actually look that bad. In fact a second Dark Pulse from Gengar actually sees Alakazam end up worse off and certainly not long for this battle.

    Desperate to regain some dignity, LockDown orders his Alakazam to keep on firing away with Psychic assaults. A Psyshock once again pinpoints Gengar's horrible defence while even the Confusion attack that eminates from this spoon holder is mighty powerful. Gengar does what it can with what it has to work with, as another Dark Pulse takes a chunk out of Quantum before he goes ahead and Knocks Off that annoyingly effective berry. Unfortunately for him a second Psyshock for the round knocks poor Gengar out before he can finish the job. Looks like it'll be up to Camerupt to clean up here, although the result is virtually academic.

    In what is surely just an attempt to make me ref another round and earn my UC Alex has forgotten to give his Camerupt Toxic (what should have been an auto add to every mon in this tourney imo) and it allows Alakazam to safely Endure and know it will live the round (with the help of a couple of substitutions). Camerupt just Yawns, showing its total lack of amusement with the situation. Alakazam is able to get some dignity back with a high powererd Psychic attack while Alex gets a Substitute set up for his Pokemon so that even with its huge weight a second Psychic attack from Zam isn't able to bring it down. Camerupt finally unleashes a powerful Charcoal boosted Flamethrower to bring Alakazam down to that magic 1 HP. Surely the Gen I powerhouse couldn't have any more tricks up its sleeve right?
