    Open challenges:

    1) 3v3 singles
    Abilities = All
    Items = On/Training (challenger can specify)

    2) 4v4 doubles
    Abilities = All
    Items = On/Training (challenger can specify)

    3) 5v5 triples
    Abilities = All
    Items = On/Training (challenger can specify)

    Everything else is up to the challenger for each battle. Note that I'll be using my fresh Mollux/Slowpoke/Chikorita in all 3 battles, though idk what I'll bring for the other Pokemon. My other Pokemon are all 40+ in moves (though there is a significant range from 40~80), but the new pokes have ~15.

    Ok, looking forward to this

    2 Day DQ
    Items: Training
    Subs: 4 along the team
    Recovers/Chills: 5
    Switch = OK

    Arena:
    RNG Roll (Post) [1-54]: 53/54 (Zarator's)
    RNG Roll (Arena) [1-1]: 1/1 .-. (The Well of Souls)

    Arena (open)

    Field Type: Ghost
    Field Complexity: Moderate
    Format: All
    Restrictions: No Weather (indoors), No Digging (see flavor explaination), No Seismic Moves (see flavor explaination), No water source (see flavor explaination), No vines for Grass Knot

    The Well of Souls is a circular, high building, akin to a tower, with a 60 ft radius and about 300 ft tall. A glassy circle is suspended in the middle, connected with the walls by four ramps, built in a X pattern around the circle. The glass can't be dug through, and any kind of seismic move would cause it to crumble. It is still possible to cause effects like Rock Slide and Rock Tomb by pounding the tower's walls, though.

    Below the glass, you can see a blue, swirling vortex. Feeble screams and cry can be heard coming from the pit, and you can spot many whisps floating in it, drifting like leaves. It is possible to harness the souls of the well to empower the user's own soul-based attacks, as well as consuming the whisps into fierce, infernal techniques. Translating into game terms, this means that:

    - Focus Blast has 100% accuracy, and the base power of Aura Sphere and Hidden Power is raised by (2). It is very easy to focus oneself's soul upon the Well
    - Will-O-Wisp and Inferno have 100% accuracy. The whisps provide decent enough fodder for these wicked spells
    - Destiny Bond's energy cost is reduced by (5), and its CAP is raised to 40. The connection with the underworld is very strong near the Well.


    Is this Ok for you?

    Training items
    Switching ON
    5/2 Chill/Recovers
    2 Subs
    Oasis Arena (open)
    Arena: Oasis Arena
    Field Type: Neutral
    Complexity: Moderate
    Format: All

    Restrictions: No Rain or Hail

    Description: It's basically a purpose built Pokemon arena with a difference: It has an Oasis in the middle of the arena. The Surface of the arena is sand & diggable, while the actual semi-lake that the oasis is positioned near the middle of the arena, to the right of where the challenger stands. On the other side are the grandstands. The arena has the same dimensions as a normal arena. The default weather is Clear & the only Weather that can take effect is Sun & Sandstorm.

    Summary:
    Arena with Oasis, Diggable sandy surface, Oasis positioned near the middle of arena. Default weather: Clear, it can never hail or rain here.

    I'm OK with all of these!

    EDIT: I guess for the singles we can use 1 day dq/2 for refs, since DFrog didn't specify.

    Posting an Open Challenge.

    4v4 NFE Doubles (Rotom is considered allowed, though I will not be using mine)
    2 Day DQ Time
    2 Recoveries / 5 Chills per Pokemon
    2 Substitutions
    Arena (open)
    Arena: Scrapyard
    Field Type: Steel/Rotom
    Complexity: Intense
    Format: All

    Restrictions: Only Sandstorm can be summoned without Weather Rocks, Indoor Arena, Artificial Field, No Natural Grass, No External Water Source, No Digging

    Description:
    [​IMG]
    The one place we all know & love from the Iron Dungeon, has not had a lot of love as everyone (bar two users to date) simply bypasses these appliances with little to no thought. Today, some people have decided to come to this place, bypassing the other parts of Iron Dungeon, & set up a battle here! Be careful, though, as there has been Wormadam (Trash) sighted around the place...

    Mechanics:

    • Sandstorm is changed to Shrapnel when used.
      • 3 DPA +/-1, for Steel weakness/resistance each action.
        • Steel-Type Pokemon & Rotom (In an Appliance) are immune to Shrapnel Damage.
      • A flat +10% Accuracy increase to all attacks used by Steel-Type Pokemon.
    • Rotom may enter or exit any appliance throughout the course of the battle, but doing so will cost an action.
    • External Rocks come in the form of bits of shrapnel & junk, making all attacks that require it Steel-Typed.
    • At the end of each round, there is a 20% Chance a Wormadam (Trash) will use Psychic.
      • Random Target, assume Quiet Nature (i.e. R4 SpA), & no item.
    • Sky Drop, Fly, & Bounce function as normal, but do not gain enough altitude to evade attacks.
    Summary: Obviously biased towards Rotom & Steel Types, Shrapnel, Appliances galore, & a Wormadam (Trash)! Also, that Picture :)


    Anyone? (I only have 1 NFE Steel, js)
