Brandon stood on the plateau, waiting for the trainers that would be battling to arrive. Overhead Skystrike circled the arena, now a powerful Braviary who would be in charge of saving Pokemon that fell off the plateau, though they would still be treated as KOed. While waiting for the trainers to arrive, Brandon went over the rules one last time. The first trainer, HD, arrived. Still waiting for Pikapwnd, Brandon quickly looked around the arena. Pikapwnd arrived, and while the two trainers made their final preparations Brandon quickly looked over the teams.

Or maybe he just didn't have any others that were unevolved?" Brandon noticed that the trainers were ready to go, and addressed them. "Alright, HD you know how this works but for Pikapwnd's sake I'm going to explain. As match seeker HD sends out his Pokemon first, declaring its ability at the same time. Then Pikapwnd will send out his Pokemon, declare its ability, and give its orders. Then HD will order and I'll figure out what happened. After that HD orders first, and the order switches up every round. So if no one has any questions, we'll get started!"
