    It was beautiful day. The sun was shining, the Swablu were singing (nicely, not the banshee wailing that kills everything that can hear it) and I was just kicking back on the beach, washing the mud off of me from Its_A_Random's stupid Muddy Sandstorm idea as my Buneary played in the surf. Far from any possible battles that result from me being too close to civilisation.

    That was until they decided to build a flying platform inside a Thundercloud, and do battle up there. So, after 1 abduction by giant pincer-hand (Team Rocket Style), a little bit of coaxing and a lot of threatening to throw me off the edge of the sky, I finally conceded to getting this reffing done and dusted. So, let's set some ground rules first:

    The Arena (open)

    Arena: The Thunderstorm (potential Gym)
    Field Type: Electric
    Complexity: Moderate
    Format: All

    Restrictions: All Weather moves will fail, permanent rain, no seismic activity, no Digging, but Diving allowed, no plant-life.

    Description: High above the land, there is an aerial platform, held in midair by jets. This platform is surrounded by a black thundercloud, and if it weren't for the floodlights, it would be in pitch black. This is SoS' domain. The platform is 50 feet by 50 feet in area, with each trainer at one end. It is nothing more than a metal platform, meaning moves that require a natural environment like Grass Knot will fail. The exception to this is moves that require a water source - as the cloud itself is made of water, it can be used for Surf, etc. Pokémon can even dive into it, as nonsensical as that sounds. At the end of each round, there's a 30% chance of a lightning strike, essentially a STAB Thunderbolt from rank 3 SpA. There's an even chance of it hitting each Pokémon, but it can only hit ONE target. (ie there's a 50% chance for each if there's 2, 25% if it's 4, etc.)

    Summary: Anything mentioned in the Restrictions, plus potential lightning strike at the end of each round.


    And who will be our illustrious competitors?

    Hmph, no switching. I hate switch = KO...

    Ah well. Hijinks, you're up to bat first. I think you'll be a suitable match for our opponent. Don't underestimate her for her size, Hijinks is a valuable member of my team.

    Let's get it Cyclohm.

    Toxic, HP Grass, Dragon Pulse

    If Substitute is used A1, HP Grass until it breaks, then Toxic.
    If Krillowatt uses Toxic, replace current action with Protect.

    I have no idea what happened after actions, so I'm going to assume you guys had it all sorted. And Texas, you need to update Cyclohm: You're missing Weight and Size Classes, and Sheer Force was replaced with Overcoat.

    God I love Magic Guard. Especially that only the most adorable Pokémon get it... And Sigilyph. Time for what Krillowatt is known for best, hijinks and shenanigans!

    Copycat (Dragon Pulse) >>> Torment >>> Ice Beam
    If Protect is used A1 or A2, use Substitute (20) instead.

    j/s, your Charge Beam roll (SpA Raise >700, rolled 17) should actually be a less than sign as opposed to a greater than sign :)

    -------------------------

    Round 3 Start!

    -------------------------

    Wow, it's getting a little chilly up here. Partially with all the Ice Beam SPAM, partially because the water's now underneath my raincoat. Thanks guys, this rain is wonderful.

    Hijinks continues to abuse Destiny Red, blasting the little Cyclohm Plushie to pieces with yet another Ice Beam. Now exposed, Behemoth searches deep, deep within itself, drawing on its own innate anti-Gastrodon abilities and attacking Hijinks with her Hidden Power! And it would seem that our little Shrimp-friend was not expecting a counter-attack, because that seems to have been a Critical Hit!

    Pew pew pew, BOOM. What was that sound? That was the sound of yet another Ice Beam, fired at Behemoth once again. Wait, what's with the icy mist around Behemoth? Why is it we can only see her silhouette? Is something wrong? Why isn't she moving?
    ...
    She's... she's gone... Behemoth Fainted... Ohh dear...

    This is SimonSays, and this has- *Lightning strikes Hijinks* Well. That happened. Bless your face. New Stats, Steven!

    Calculations (open)

    Action 1:
    Krilowatt: Uses Ice Beam! (7+4= 11 En) (Crit <63, rolled 324) (10+(4-3)*1.5)*1.5 = 17.25 = 17 Dmg! The Substitute broke!
    Cyclohm: Uses Hidden Power! (5 En) (Crit <63, rolled 8) A Critical Hit! (7+3+(5-3)*1.5)*1.5+(1*1.75) = 21.25 = 21 Dmg!

    Action 2:
    Krilowatt: Uses Ice Beam! (7+8= 15 En) (Crit <63, rolled 380) (10+(4-3)*1.5)*1.5 = 17.25 = 17 Dmg! Cyclohm Fainted!

    End of Round:
    Krilowatt: Poison Worsens! (-4HP Next Round)
    Arena: (LightningStrike <300, rolled 94) Thunder Rolls!
    (1 | 2, rolled 1) Hijinks was hit by Lightning! (10+3+(3-3)*1.5) = 13 Dmg!

    Hax happens.

    Chill >>> Ice Beam >>> Surf (remember, this is allowed due to the water moisture in the air)
    If Protect is used, chill once and push actions back.
    If Outrage is used ONLY on actions 2 or 3, use Counter once and push actions back.

    15hp Sub, Swords Dance, Outrage (Sharky gets outsped so Counter should be invalid.)

    Texas, Counter has negative priority. I'm not sure why you thought that it wouldn't work that way.

    Round 4 Start!

    -------------------------

    You know, there's something about this kind of weather that just makes me wanna rush inside and hide under some blankets. Instead, I get to be hugged by hypothermia! Yay!

    Action 1:
    Hijinks:
    Chills! (+12 En)
    Sharky: Uses Substitute! (12 En) (-15HP) Sharky Created a Substitute!

    Action 2:
    Hijinks: Uses Ice Beam! (7 En) (Crit <53, rolled 928) (10+(4-3)*1.5)*2.25 = 25.875 = 26 Dmg! The Substitute was Obliterated!
    Sharky: Uses Sword Dance! (7 En) Attack Greatly Rose! (+2)

    Action 3:
    Sharky:
    Uses Outrage! (8-1= 7 En) (Crit <63, rolled 414) (12+3+(6-3)*1.5)+(2*1.75) = 23 Dmg!
    Hijinks: Uses Counter! (18 En) 35 Fixed Dmg!

    End of Round:
    Hijinks:
    Poison Worsens! (-5HP Next Round)

    If you feel that my reffing isn't coming in fast enough, I totally understand, and I will happily put a call out for a subref. Otherwise, order normally and ignore this. Thank you. ~SimonSays

    krillowatt outspeeds and thus should order Surf first. As Counter is reactionary, it should have to be hit by Outrage to be able to order Counter. As Krill outspends, it would Surf before being hit by outrage, using it's action.
    That's my reasoning behind the comment. I've only seen it reffed this way a couple of times but it's what I believe is the logical progression.

    Regardless, that fish will die, so Outrage unless it kills itself first.

    As much as I know this is going to fuck me over, Garchomp should still have +2 Attack because of Swords Dance.

    -------------------------

    Round 5 Start!

    -------------------------

    Sorry about the Attack boost, I forgot to put that in. But I normally note something when it goes away, so if I didn't say it went away, assume it is indeed still there. And Texas, I always thought that a Pokemon could sub a move in a lower priority bracket because they can hear the trainer, giving the order to use, in this case, Outrage. That's just my theory, and how I've always done it.

    Action 1:
    Hijinks:
    Uses Ice Shard! (3 En) (Crit <63, rolled 113) (4+(3-4)*1.5)*2.25 = 5.625 = 6 Dmg!
    Sharky: Uses Outrage! (8 En) Sharky (Crit <63, rolled 647) (12+3+(6-3)*1.5)+(2*1.75) = 23 Dmg!
    Hijinks Fainted!

    End of Round:
    Sharky:
    Attack Decays! (Now +1)
    Arena: (LightningStrike <300, rolled 290) (1 | 2, rolled 2) Garchomp was struck by Lightning! (No Effect)

    6 damage from a x4 super effective T_T Also, this is starting to look very bad.

    Go Coulomb!

    Disable Outrage >>> Bug Buzz >>> Energy Ball
    If he uses Stone Edge, use an Evasive Agility.

    -------------------------

    Round 6 Start!

    -------------------------
    Whatever happened to inaccurate Disable? When I was a kid, it was so unreliable that you were better off just SPAMing Fire Blast. Of course, there wasn't any Rain back then...

    Action 1:
    Coulomb:
    Uses Disable! (7 En) Sharky's Outrage was Disabled!
    Sharky: Uses Outrage! (8 En) Failed, due to Disable!

    Action 2:
    Sharky: Uses Protect! (12 En) Garchomp Protected itself!
    Coulomb: Uses Bug Buzz! (7-1= 6 En) (Crit <63, rolled 573) (9+3+(5-3)*1.5)= 15 Dmg! Garchomp Protected itself!

    Between Actions:
    Sharky:
    Attack Drop Decays! (Now normal)

    Action 3:
    Coulomb:
    Uses Energy Ball! (6 En) (Crit <63, rolled 666) (8+(5-3)*1.5) = 11 Dmg! (SpDef Drop <100, rolled 751)
    Sharky: Uses Dragon Claw! (6-1= 5 En) (Crit <63, rolled 308) (8+3+(6-2)*1.5) = 17 Dmg!

    End of Round:
    Arena: (LightningStrike <300, rolled 502)
