    Reffing plox.

    I am also issuing an Open Challenge

    4vs4 Doubles
    DQ: 3 Days
    2 Recovery Moves/5 Chills per Pokemon

    Arena: Muckraker Swamp

    This old bayou is the home of the lowest scum on earth: paparazzi and attack journalists. Don't be surprised if the next candidate for the Edward R. Murrow Award shows up with his flash camera. Deep in this scummy pond, the Kingfisher scuttles about doing his dirty deeds and everyone follows. But enough about the history, Muckraker Swamp is used for a reason: it has the ideal topography for finding sleaze.

    The bayou is about 2 feet deep in swampy muck. The muddy material is interspersed with trees whose roots delve below the floor. Their leaves provide a kind of canopy for the arena, but the actual spacing between each tree is fairly large, about 15 feet each at the bases. Although the arena is moist, the ground underneath the muck is solid enough for seismic attacks to work. The muck disgusts Pokemon that aren't used to it, and will inflict Toxic Poisoning on any Pokemon that doesn't learn Mud Sport, Mud-Slap, Mud Shot, Mud Bomb, or Muddy Water in its Level-Up movepool. The only other alternative is flying or floating above it, or otherwise being immune to Poison. Be careful though, as if the Pokemon is knocked in the swamp, it will be inflicted with Toxic.

    This looks like an intriguing match, though its a bit odd to leave your arena in the dark.

    Begginer Challenge
    -this is my first ever battle, so I want a chance of winning! xD
    3v3 Doubles
    DQ time = 3 days
    2 Recovery Moves/5 Chills per Pokemon

    Arena: Volcanic Plains
    Arena Bio (open)
    The Volcanic Plains, adjacent to 2 small Volcanoes, are a very hot environment. It is almost always sunny, but the soil is extremely rich and soft, making Grass types have an unexpected advantage, and Ground-based moves much weaker.

    The sheer cliffs of the Volcanoes are full of boulders and dislodged rocks, making rock-type attacks much easier to use (hint hint) but if you dislodge the wrong rock, you could cause a small Eruption

    Arena Summary (open)

    90% chance of Sun
    Bonuses: Grass types and Rock moves (Fire moves via sun)
    Disadvantages: Ground moves (water moves via sun)
    30% Chance of Eruption damaging random pokemon if a rock-type move is used (may attack 1, 2, 3 or all pokemon for varying damage)


    did I get everything right?

    All right, time for me to send out a challenge.

    Open Challenge
    1v1 Singles
    0 Recovers/0 Chills
    DQ Time: 1 day for battlers, 2 days for ref
    Arena: Dragon's Den
    Everyone knows what it's like, flavor-wise, so I'll give the practical specs:
    - Surf, Rock Slide, ground-based moves are usable
    - Weather cannot be used
    - At the end of every round, non-Dragons will take a 3 Atk Extremespeed from the Extremespeed Dratini, who does not appreciate foreigners.

    I assume no one has taken up this match to ref? If no one has, then I'll ref, This may help me improve my reffing. You two, send me your squads. If someone already has, then disregard this post.

    Looking for a 2v2 singles match, pissweak pokemon are preferred.
    1 Day DQ
    no recovery or chills
    Arena: A grassy field on a cloudy night. Small Pokemon will be harder to spot due to grass and darkness, and it looks like it could rain at any moment.

    1vs1 Quadruples (yes i mean singles).
    2-Day DQ, 2/5.
    ONLY basic mons that can't evolve. Can people actually read this part for a change? Also, send in one pokemon at random, it's no fun otherwise.

    Arena can be the host's choosing, get creative if you want, but nothing radical against a certain type of mon.

    You may only bring 1 evolved Pokemon(including single stage mons), and Pokemon cannot evolve during the battle.

    Arena: Outside of Big Boo's Haunt Mansion.

    Requesting Active Battlers and Ref. It would be nice if it was all abilities and no items, j/s.

    I accept.

    Switch = troll.
    NO! ITEMS! EVEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRR!!!!
    One ability.

    I choose a standard tropical island at sunset, meaning Sunny Day is NOT in effect. Rockpools around the beachy area allow for rock and water moves to be used. However, Dig and seismic activity moves are not permitted, due to the fact that... Well, you try using Earthquake on a beach and see where it gets you.

    Ref please?

    Basic pokemon are prefered, but I'll take on anyone.

    I'll take one of your 1v1s. I'll be using basic mons only.

    All abilities
    No items
    Switch = the square root of minus one

    Arena: Strong Badia
    image (open)
    [​IMG]

    A 20ft-by-30ft field with a white picket fence along the edges. There is also a tyre leaning on the fence and a stop sign with graffiti on it leaning on a cinder block. There is no external water source for moves like Surf, Muddy Water and Soak. Dig can be used but who knows what you may find a few feet underneath Strong Badia? (ref can decide what if anything lies underground)
