    I'll join as well. In the interest of not dragging the battle out forever with switch orders, Switch = KO.

    Arena: Earth Mausoleum
    Field Type: Ground
    Complexity: Intense
    Format: All

    Restrictions: No Natural Grass, Only Sandstorm & Clear weather permitted, Poorly-lit Indoor arena

    Description: The Earth Mausoleum is a dark, desolate place inside a cave situated in a remote desert about 6km from the nearest city. At the entrace, you must proceed down a tunnel that is fairly dark, but is loaded to the gills with harmless Ground Type Pokemon, predominately Hippopotas & Sandshrew, even the occasional Garchomp lurking about the place. After your short walk through a prescribed route, you walk into a large, fairly well lit indoors arena, that looked very dull, but one thing's obvious; This was a Ground Type Paradise...
    This arena has virtually the same dimensions as the ASB Tournament arena, but with a few differences. Firstly, the arena has mini-grandstands at the side, & the trainers stand on a Podium elevated up by 3 metres. Lastly, the arena ceiling is rather low at only 20m high.
    Now, what does this arena have that gives Ground Types an edge? Firstly, The main arena floor is a hybrid of sand & dirt, mixed together to make a strange material that can easily be dug into. Additionally, the ceiling is low & creates a completely indoor feel, where Moves that require sunlight, like Solarbeam, & all other weathers bar Clear & Sandstorm, fail. Additionally, Pokemon using Sky Drop/Fly/Bounce fail to gain enough altitude to evade, that is, they become a normal attack. Next, there is a fairly large mud patch near the centre of the arena at about 10 metres in diameter, & goes to about 10 metres deep. This mud patch has a little bit of water in it, but enough to be considered an external water source, but in using it, the attack becomes combined with mud & becomes a Ground Type Attack. Additionally, anyone using the patch to dive are still vulnerable to seismic moves & get hit for double power. The arena also has a strange feel to it, as if it was rather hot. As a result, any non-Ground & non-Fire Pokemon using a Water or Ice Type move will have its BAP reduced by 2. Lastly there is a strange, undescribable force in this arena, where if two Pokemon on the same team use a seismic move like Earthquake, they will never hit each other, almost as if to say, they will always synchronise, irrespective of turn order.
    Being a Ground Type paradise, how will the average player fare? We shall see soon enough...

    Mechanics:

    • Mud patches around the arena have enough water to be considered usable as an external Water Source.
      • However, all the mud means that such attacks become Ground Type moves.
      • These attacks can still be nullified by Storm Drain.
      • Any Pokemon hiding in Mud Patches through the use of moves like Dive can also be affected by seismic moves at x2 Power.
    • Because of the arena heat, any Water & Ice Type move used by any non-Ground Type Pokemon (And any non-Fire Types by default) have their BAP reduced by 2 (Ground Types & Fire Types are used to the heat).
    • If two Pokemon on the same team use a seismic move that has 0 Priority, AND a Pokemon with a speed stat in-between the fastest & the slowest users of the move in question uses a move with 0 priority, then that move in question will be treated as -1 priority attack for the action.
      • In other words, synchroquakes are far easier to pull off successfully
    • Sky Drop, Fly, & Bounce all do not gain altitutde to successfully evade attacks, that is, they instead become 0 Priority attacks
    Summary: Ground Type Paradise...

    Who wants a fair fight on a Gym Arena? Also Requesting Switch=OK, thanks.

    Easter Arena (open)

    The Regular ASB arena has been filled with Easter Eggs!!
    All attacks instead of having a chance of a critical hit have a chance of uncovering an Easter Egg (find chance is still boosted by certain attacks and super luck). The egg has chance of being any of the following.

    Chocolate Egg 30% - Recovers 20 Energy
    Pokemon Egg 30%- The Pokemon will hatch at the end of the round (RNG for random first stage mon) and the finder will be able to use it in battle for the next round (Level Up moves only)
    Egg Bomb 30% - The finder can throw it at an opposing Pokemon for damage (equivalent of using egg bomb with no energy loss)
    Lucky Egg 10% - This Pokemon gains the ability super luck for the remainder of the battle and can use ANY MOVE (except sketch) on action 1 of the next round
