    Okay, folks, we have a treat for you today! We are here at the extremely scenic Crystal Colosseum for a battle!

    Here are the rules and information on the arena, as determined by the combatants

    First off, in the... Dark gray corner, we have Eternal Drifter, and his Meowth, Fern!
    Now, in the... Other dark gray corner, we have ZhengTann, with his Axew, Natsu, and his Riolu, Gray. Though he'll only be able to use one in the battle.

    Okay, here's what's going to happen. As Zhengtann chose the arena, he sends out first. After which, Eternal Drifter sends out (by default, Fern) and orders. Zhengtann will then order, and I will ref. Oh, and since nobody responded to me about flavor, I will include it. Though, I'll edit it in as I can, as this is supposed to be quick and I don't want to hold anyone up waiting for me to ref.

    "Well then," Walker says, walking into the arena. "I think this may be a quick match, since we are outmatched. But, I must say, this is a nice change in scenery, compared to the places I'm used to battling."

    "Fern, get in there. Let's do our best. And remember: no flinching the opponent, or it may end badly."

    "A quick match... for quick cash. Since your Poke'mon knows Copycat, I'd highly recommend using it after Fern uses Pay Day. I must also say... if you had brought any items, you could have expected Fern to borrow it for the match."

    Round 1:
    Action 1: Pay Day
    Action 2: Aerial Ace
    Action 3: Pay Day

    Tsk, tsk. Greed is one of the Seven Deadly Sins (And I invoke thy name, SDS).

    "... Copycat? Might as well."

    Let's see, that cat is capable of aerial combat. Match her, blow to blow! And then let's see if we could paralyze it.

    Copycat > Counter > Force Palm

    Greetings, trainers and spectators! My name is Sound, and I’ll be your referee, your MC, and… and we don’t need the rule of three!

    *Kricketots chirping*

    I’m new at this, okay? Give me a break!

    Oh, the trainers are sending out their pokemon! Seems like they got tired of waiting for me. Zhengtann has sent out his Riolu, Gray! Meanwhile, Walker has chosen his Meowth, Fern, to battle with! The trainers orders are given, and we are ready to start!

    Fern grins like the CEO of Megacorp, and summons up some packets filled with energy. Seems like that was Meowth’s signature move, Pay Day, since the packets just turned into coins. Walker isn’t the only person making a profit, since Gray uses the exact the same attack against Fern, utilizing his Copycat move.

    Fern leaps into the air above Riolu, and descends with a superb Aerial Ace attack! Thanks to one of Meowth’s abilities, Technician, that hurt even more than usual. Gray glares angrily at its opponent as its body takes on a red aura. Gray punches Fern and, WOW that was a big attack from a little guy. That was a Counter attack, and a strong one!

    Fern, using its superior speed, gets off another attack, which include the same energy packets from Action 1. Courtesy of the Pay Day more coins spawn on Walker’s side of the field. Gray is most likely going to use copy- Oh, wait! Gray just used a palm based strike! Seems like Zhengtann managed to resist giving into greed, and it was definitely a good idea, as that Force Palm has caused Fern a lot of pain, though no paralyze.

    As we some to a close this round, both sides have sustained damaged. Though the battle isn’t over yet!

    Close your eyes, Gray. We're not risking Trust your aura sight. And the Joint-Dislocating Technique (分筋错骨手) every martial artist learns.

    [​IMG]
    "I trust you too."

    (Gray closes his eyes, relying on the renowned Aura Sight of the Riolu/Lucario lineage to detect his opponent Meowth. All attacks that actively seek out opponents - such as Bullet Punch - will suffer accuracy penalties, but attacks that rely on the opponent to make contact first - such as Counter after an Aerial Ace - will be unaffected.)

    Counter > Counter > Counter
    If Fenn-Meowth uses a non-attacking move, replace with Copycat that same action

    "Tricky, tricky..." Walker says, grinning, picking up several of the coins around the arena. "But I see an exploit. Do you, Fern?"

    Fern, Round 2:
    Action 1: Taunt
    Action 2: Spite (Counter)
    Action 3: Screech

    "If I have my sources straight," Walker says, "Taunt will prevent Copycat from being used. This will prove amusing."

    "This shall be interesting..." Walker says. "Let us see how much power Fern has now, though I was expecting the Screech to miss, since we've hit with many inaccurate attacks before."

    (OOC: Shouldn't Gray have used Struggle after the first instance of being unable to use Copycat? And shouldn't you have rolled for the Screech attack, since it's accuracy is 85%?)

    "This ends this round! Fern, end this!"

    Fern, Round 3:
    Action 1: Pay Day
    Action 2: Aerial Ace
    Action 3: Shred (Scratch + Fury Swipes Combo)

    IF Counter is used, Chill and push actions back.

    Both of those problems are fixed. Feel free to change your action because of them.

    Edit: Forgot Struggle's Recoil. Once again, you can reorder.

    Walker winces. "That doesn't bode well..." Walker says. "A single strong hit will bring you down, Fern. Let's try to end this."

    "SHRED HIM!"

    With that, Fern throws one last set of coins at Gray, then prepares to strike with razor sharp claws.

    Fern, Round 2:
    Action 1: Pay Day
    Action 2: Super Shred (Scratch+Aerial Ace+Fury Swipes)
    Action 3: Cooldown (Super Shred if combo failed last action)

    IF fully paralyzed action 2, push actions back.

    Sorry, but three move combos aren't allowed. In addition, it's round 3.

    (OOC: NOT a good night for battles...)

    Fern, Round 3:
    Action 1: Pay Day
    Action 2: Shred (Scratch+Fury Swipes)
    Action 3: Cooldown (Shred)

    IF Gray uses Counter on action 2, Screech instead and push actions back (EX: Shred is then used on action 3, forcing cooldown action 1 of next round.)
    IF Fern is fully paralyzed action 2, push actions back (EX: Shred is used action 3, and action 1 next round is Cooldown.)

    Important OOC Update:

    Due to something in one of my battles, and relating to this one, I must bring this up:

    Is this true? If it is, then my plan for cash is heading towards the drain...

    [/QUOTE]

    Because of this, Pay Day will only affect the winner. Winner will take all. I have already made a request in the data thread for an update to the move.

    That's how it relates to the battle; I don't want more trouble by prize approvers shouting at a new ref and those he refs. Now, carry on, my actions this round are the same as before.

    Wow, lots of rulings in Payday, and then I expected to waste R2 doing nothing instead of Struggling. Guess we're all too new, heh. But its not going to help in this. Open your eyes now, Gray. Time to show how combinations are more powerful when you the same moves. Countering isn't the only weapon we have in our minds and bodies. Also, the kitty might've made a mistake - her Technician cannot help her Shred combo, since Scratch would've boosted Fury Swipes by 50 percent.

    (I highly doubt they would have yelled at me, the only way I could have found this would probably be searching for it. While I could probably do it in five minutes, that doesn't change the fact that I had no motivation to search the move in the first place. Also, Zheng, I checked, and appearently, Counter is affected by type effectiveness. I apologize. Also, Technician will affect the combo. This is because it says in the description it says that all multi hit moves always activate it.)

    Okay, after several rulings (and mistakes on my part), we are ready for round 3.​

    Calcs (open)

    Action 1:

    Fern used Payday!
    Crit: 6132 (NO)
    Hit: Irrelevant
    [(6 + 3 + 3 - 3) + (2 * 1.75) = 12.5 Damage/2 Energy

    Gray used Counter!
    Crit: Irrelevant
    Hit: Irrelevant
    (12.5 damage * 1.5) * 1.5 = 28.125 Damage/6 + (12.5/2) = 16.25 Energy

    Action 2

    Fern used Shred combo! (Scratch * Fury Swipes)​


    Hit: 5759 (YES)
    Crit: 3724, 4980, 6456, 8309 (NONE)
    (5*4 + 3 + 3 - 3) + (2 * 1.75) = 26.5 Damage / [(3 + 4) * 1.5] + 2= 12.5 Energy

    Gray used Eight Trigrams 128 Palm-Strike! (Two Force Palms)
    Hit: 191 (YES)
    Para: Irrelevant
    Crit: 4461 (NO)
    (13.5 + 3 + 4.5 - 3) * 1.5 = 27 Damage / 24.5 Energy
    Fern fainted!​

    Round Summary:

    Fern: 55.125 ~ 55 damage taken, 14.5 Energy used.
    Gray: 39 damage taken, 40.75 ~ 41 Energy used.​


    How I got the base power of Fern's combo (open)

    Meowth's Scratch + Fury Swipes combo: 4 for Scratch / (2 * 1.5) = 3 per hit, 4 hits.​


    (Okay, I couldn't find anything on how a multi hit combines with a non multi hit, so here's how I'm doing it. Scatch's base power won't be multiplied by technician, as we don't have the final move's base power yet. While the whole thing will be applied with Technician since, as previously stated, Technician always activates on multi hit moves. Then, Technician will be applied to each move.)​


    4 (Scatch's base power) / 4 (number of hits) = 1 (How much is added to each hit)​


    The new amount of of damage per hit is 4. Finally, we add the technician bonus, which is one per hit. This means the final amount of damage per hit is 5. That's how I got the base power.​
