    We are at the ASB arena, with our battlers, Canis Majoris and LouisCyphre. Canis Maioris, Dog, is a relatively new battler in ASB, joining in mid February. He has brought with him today Deep Blue the Metang, and Rita the Argalis. Is bringing two Psychic-types against the former Dark-type Gym Leader a good idea, or is it a horrible mistake?

    LouisCyphre was once the Dark-type Gym Leader, but he left ASB for a while some time before I came, so I don't actually know him (her?) at all. Today, he has brought Oddjob the Murkrow and Silver the Rebble. Has Lou lost some of his battling ability, or will he smash the newcomer?

    Of course I've gotten rusty. There's no denying it.

    There's a chance I may lose this, in fact! There's always a chance of losing; that's the nature of battle. There will never -not- be a chance that I lose a match that's only just begun.

    Oddjob - Taunt (Rita) | Sky Attack (Rita) | Sky Attack (Rita)
    If Rita successfully Protects action 1, Torment Deep Blue and push actions down.

    Sliver - Heat Wave | Fire Blast (Deep Blue) | Heat Wave
    If Deep Blue has already successfully used Meteor Mash in a previous action, Disable it and push actions down.

    Round One

    I am Someoneelse. You knew that already. Anyway, Dog seems to have gotten himself into some trouble with the hax gods. Deep Blue the Metang@ was Burned by Sliver's Heat Wave, and Rita the Argalis got too scared to move after Oddjob's Sky Attack. The battlers exchanged blow after blow, but eventually LouisCyphre has become in the lead by a slight amount, despite using some actions to annoy Dog's team. What will be next?

    Now, Lou takes advantage of Dog's substitutions for Deep Blue, after swiftly knocking Rita out. Sliver was Protected at all times, by itself or by Oddjob. This made Deep Blue try to up its defences. Oddjob Tormented it, and it was couldn't do anything but take damage and use up energy.

    Dog, you are unable to use a same-move combination attack under the effects of Torment, thus you must reorder.

    So, the Supercomputer looks puzzled, as Dog has just commanded it to attack a Protected Pokemon. Perhaps he forgot Oddjob's Prankster. Either way, it meant that Deep Blue can't stand the beating from the shadows and the infernos, and Lou wins the battle.

    Woah woah woah hold it.
    Protect has 0 Prio when it's used on another mon.
    This means BP+Metal Claw hits before Protect.
