    Hello, and welcome to today's game of Pokemon Chess. On a giant chessboard in the middle of nowhere, two skilled battlers have gathered to participate in the real gentleman's sport. Deck Knight, Smogon's most renowned chess player, asked for a challenge; what he got was an acceptance from TravelLog, Smogon's most renowned log of travel. A two-day timer has been set up on both sides, and now we are ready to begin.


    Next, the arena summary:

    Arena Summary (open)

    Arena: Pokemon Chess Board

    Open Field: An opposing trainer may send any of their Pokemon onto an Open Field. The initial trainer's Pokemon are all selected beforehand.

    The Pokemon Chess Board is an intricate arena, the effects of which change based on the Pokemon used. It is set on an artificial field consisting of alternating 8x8 black and white squares about 5 square feet each. All Attacks can be utilized, as the chess board will create any necessary element for the attack. Be warned that effects will disappear after each action and will have to generated from scratch, so the arena for example cannot be flooded out, even if Rain is summoned. Weathers still last their full duration and have all their other battle effects.

    The Arena benefits or handicaps players based on the Pokemon they select in the following ways:

    • If one player has more fully evolved Pokemon than the other, each of that player's Pokemon will lose one Rank in each stat (including HP), as well as 20% of their speed.
    • If a player's active Pokemon share like weaknesses, all of the shared weaknesses of that player's active Pokemon will be reduced to 2x, regardless of their ordinary severity.
    • If a player's active Pokemon share like STABs, the STAB bonus of that STAB is increased by 1.
    • If a player's active Pokemon share like Attacks, the Base Attack Power of those shared attacks is increased by 1.


    The pieces selected for use today are listed below.

    I'm going to assume my pieces are handicapped only when Fidgit is on the field correct? In any case, I will be opening with Piplup and Monohm.

    Monohm, you move before Piplup so I want you to open with Magnet Rise, followed by Hydro Pump on Baltoy, from there, use Rain Dance to saturate the field with water and softening the soil, making any earthquakes less capable of carrying seismic waves as well as making self-destruct far less efficient in the event of its occurence.

    Piplup, your first job is to Yawn at Gligar, followed by Scald (Gligar), then an Ice Beam on Gligar.

    Edit: also, I know that the arena resets after each action, but with the rain continuing, the ground should be resaturated. Flooding will obviously not occur, it will simply make the soil a bit softer and soak the pokemon on the field.

    Alright troops, time for the first round.

    Knight, begin with a powerful Earthquake to shake up your opponents. Next, capture Pengwin in a Sand Tomb to make it more difficult to aim. It'll need more than its umbrella to stop this Knight. Finish up by keeping your distance and using Power Trick. Your opponents will no doubt find you very... offensive for the next few rounds.

    Bishop, begin by smashing Cid with an Earth Power. Even though it might pull off a Magnet Rise, it will have little to no time to dodge Earth Power's eruption, given you are roughly the same speed. Next, combine your Ice Beam with Knight's Sand Tomb to chill out the Pengwin. The Ice and swirling sand should solidify around it, causing its Scald to lose all velocity, though it will likely end up covered in a ball of mud by the end. Finish the round by counteracting Cid's Rain Dance with Sandstorm. I imagine after that the field will be rather... un-sight-ly for them.

    Knight: Earthquake ~ Sand Tomb (Pengwin) ~ Power Trick

    Bishop: Earth Power (Cid) ~ Ice Beam (freeze the particles of Sand Tomb around Pengwin to lock it in and disrupt Scald) ~ Sandstorm

    Round 1 Begin!

    The match begins. Let’s analyze their actions play by play. Deck Knight uses a powerfully strategic opening: Knight to EQ6. This does plenty of damage to both Pengwin and Cid, while leaving Bishop completely unharmed because of his Levitate ability. Funny, I don’t remember bishops being able to float in real chess… Anyway, TravelLog responds appropriately with Cid to MR5. As he floats off the ground (what kind of game IS this?), Deck Knight makes a hasty move: Bishop to EP6. Cid, who is floating off the ground, still takes the hit but does manage to avoid full damage because of the energy necessary to redirect the attack up. TravelLog closes the first turn with Pengwin to Y7. Deck Knight’s Knight will be having sweet dreams, but that will occur in a few turns.

    Again, Deck Knight takes the initiative and sets up the first part of a combination attack: Knight to ST3. Pengwin gasps in shock as the square underneath him morphs into a pit of quicksand that quickly surrounds him, leaving him almost unable to move. However, TravelLog remains unfazed; he moves Cid to HP8, resulting in a massive amount of health loss on Bishop’s part. Deck Knight appears concerned, but he keeps his concentration on that combination attack and moves Bishop to IB7. The sand around Pengwin freezes, rendering the poor penguin unable to do any damage on this action. However, TravelLog was prepared for this and moves (somehow) Pengwin to S5. The boiling water thaws the ice around him, but it also mixes with the quicksand, covering Pengwin in mud. That certainly looks unpleasant.

    Deck Knight is relentless and calls Knight to PT7. Knight swaps his own Attack and Defense, meaning he’ll be able to do some heavy damage next action before he drifts into la-la land. TravelLog moves Cid to RD10, creating a massive Rainstorm that pours down on the arena. However, Deck Knight dislikes this and orders Bishop to S10. A Sandstorm quickly appears, blocking out the Rain and causing damage to both Pengwin and Cid at the end of each action. TravelLog is unhappy; he squints harder against the raging Sand and just manages to move Pengwin to IB7. Bishop was just here, but Pengwin doesn’t seem to care; his beam of frozen aura deals a massive blow to Deck Knight’s Knight.

    The Sandstorm will continue for another 5 turns. This match is just heating up, so stay tuned for the next round of action! Oops, sorry for yelling. This is a chess match...

    Dummy: Don't forget to reset all of TravelLogs's mons.

    Excellent work Knight, Bishop.

    You'll have to rest for an action but it will be worth it Knight. If we're lucky Sand Veil might even bail you out. Should you somehow be awakened, use Acrobatics on Pengwin. As that's very much doubtful, Acrobatics on your second action as well, and finish up with Earthquake.

    If Pengwin begins the round with Bide, use Counter as your third action, as you'll be the last to target it.

    Bishop, we also have a pressing threat to deal with. Use Extrasensory on Pengwin to try and psych it out, then Ice Beam Cid. Finish up with another Extrasensory on Pengwin.

    Knight: Acrobatics (Pengwin) ~ Acrobatics (Pengwin) ~ Earthquake
    Use Counter over Earthquake if Piplup Bides the first action.

    Bishop: Extrasensory (Pengwin) ~ Earth Power (Pengwin) ~ Ice Beam (Cid)
    Use Sandstorm if Cid Rain Dances.

    First: were all the calcs made with my mons at reduced stats?

    Alright, let's hope Knight stays asleep for a good long while!

    Pengwin, I want you to start this round with an evasive Dig to avoid those two attacks! I want you to emerge behind Bishop and blast it the hole you made with an Ice Beam (also freezing the water, trapping Bishop inside for a good long while, [see Cid's actions]). You'll take an earth power, but make sure you keep Bishop near the hole you just made! From there, use Ice Beam on Knight1

    Cid, I want you to wait until Pengwin digs and makes the hole then use Hydro Pump to fill it with Water. Once Pengwin freezes Bishop in the icy hole, I want you to use Rain Dance, then follow that up by combining your Hydro Pump with Pengwin's Ice Beam for massive damage!!!!

    Pengwin: Dig and emerge behind Bishop~use Ice Beam to freeze Bishop inside the hole filled with Cid's Hydro Pump~Combine Ice Beam with Cid's Hydro Pump on Knight

    Cid: Hydro Pump to fill Pengwin's hole with water~Rain Dance~Combine Hydro Pump with Pengwin's Ice Beam on Knight

    ...you have no idea how completely idiotic I feel right now. I profusely apologize, TravelLog, for screwing up last round's calcs. I also apologize to you, Deck Knight, for now having to waste even more time recalcing when I could be reffing Round 2. If Round 2 gets up tonight, I'll be surprised, but Round 1 will DEFINITELY get fixed today and Round 2 will DEFINITELY be up by tomorrow.

    EDIT: Round 1 is "fixed." Something seems a little off about the calcs, but that's what the damage calculator gave me. If you guys want to run your own calcs and see if yours differ, feel free. Time to ref R2!

    Round 2 Begin!

    Our good friend TravelLog somehow manages to start out this round with Pengwin to D11. Pengwin begins an evasive Dig, sending him tunneling into the ground. However, he appears to be taking his sweet time doing it, leaving his opponents plenty of time to get a few light hits in. Deck Knight makes two moves now: Knight to A6 and Bishop to E5. Knight's Acrobatics do a fair amount, only lessened by the fact that Pengwin is partially underground, while Bishop's Extrasensory is lessened a bit by Pengwin's focus. However, it does make him flinch, causing him to stop digging about 3 feet into the ground. TravelLog grits his teeth and moves Cid to HP8. His Hydro Pump fills Pengwin's hole, sending a laughing Pengwin out on a small current of water. It is now that Knight begins his assigned slumber, and he takes it with much gratitude: his sleep is intense.

    While Knight snoozes, TravelLog moves Cid to RD10 for the second time this match. Rain pours down again, dampening the spirits of everyone except Pengwin (who is thoroughly enjoying himself) and me (who has an umbrella). However, all (good) things must come to an end; Deck Knight exemplifies this by moving Bishop to S10. A Sandstorm brews again, now dampening even Pengwin's spirits. Still TravelLog remains unfazed as he moves Pengwin to IB10. Pengwin slides in right behind Bishop and fires an Ice Beam directly at it. The attack pushes Bishop into the water and freezes over the top layer, leaving it temporarily trapped down there.

    TravelLog closes Cid's action for the round by moving Cid to HP8 again. Unfortunately, the Hydro Pump isn't as accurate this time, partially due to Knight's Sand Veil. Deck Knight's final action is Bishop to IB7. Bishop concentrates a beam of ice on the layer above his head; his focus is enough as the ice somehow shatters, freeing him for the next round. TravelLog closes this round by moving Pengwin to IB7, the same space Bishop currently occupies. However, Pengwin's Ice Beam actually does damage, barely hitting Knight through the raging Sandstorm.

    End Round 2

    Alright, Cid and Pengwin, lets try the failed combo from last round, but on Bishop this time. Cid outspeeds Bishop enough that even if he somehow counteracts/evades the Ice Beam, he should get hit by Hydro Pump.

    Since Knight will be waking up, Cid I want you to use Dragon Tail on him to remove the stat changes and put him back at rank 3 attack. The last thing we want is him at rank 5. Pengwin, in the meanwhile, launch a raging Scald at Bishop.

    To finish out the round, Cid I want you to use another Hydro Pump on Bishop, while Pengwin, you Yawn at Knight again.

    Now for substitutions. If Bishop uses Dig to escape any of the water attacks Cid, just send the water in after him for a little extra damage in a confined space! Pengwin, if Knight launches an Acrobatics at you, use Bide and focus your unleashed anger on Bishop.

    Cid: Hydro Pump (Bishop)~Dragon Tail to remove stat changes (Knight)~Hydro Pump (Bishop)
    IF Bishop uses Dig on a turn where you use Hydro Pump, send the water into the hole after him


    Pengwin: Ice Beam (Bishop)~Yawn (Knight)~Ice Beam (Bishop)
    IF Knight uses Acrobatics, use Bide and when its time to unleash, aim at Bishop.

    Hmmm. Well, I still don't know how all that happened (knocking a floating Pokemon into a hole that got cut short by a flinch anyway), but whatever.

    Bishop: Since our foe is intent on using the same old strategies, disrupt them by getting between Cid and Pengwin and using a Confusion to hold Pengwin in place as it fires Ice Beam at you. Next, team up with Gligar and assault your foe with a double Earthquake! Gligar's flight and your Levitation should mean immense damage to our foes and none to yourselves. End the round with Extrasensory on Pengwin.

    Knight: Enjoy your remaining action of slumber. Then team up with Baltoy for an Earthquake. Close the book on your opponents with a second Earthquake. Hopefully the first assault finished off Cid before it could use that slow Dragon Tail, but if not, that should end it.

    Bishop: Move behind Cid to place it inbetween yourself and Pengwin, then use Confusion to lock Pengwin in place on the other side as it attacks ~ Earthquake ~ Extrasensory (Pengwin)

    Knight: Zzzzz ~ Earthquake ~ Earthquake

    Deck... not sure how to tell you this but Bishop starts off between Cid and Pengwin because he just came out of the hole and you're closer to Pengwin (who is near the hole). So while you could arguably lock Pengwin in place with Confusion (forgoing damage in favor of holding it), Cid is totally free on the other side (and faster than both Bishop or Pengwin and would have no issue dodging). I would also argue that you can't pull off both getting behind Pengwin (who is closer to you than Cid) and locking it in place, being only ~10 points faster. Given that, you could certainly hold it, but would simply be stuck between them as they attack you while you focus on holding Piplup in place

    As opposed to evasive Digging getting a priority boost, and getting affected by flinch on a 3 ft hole that got cut short, and a floating mon getting knocked on a downward trajectory by a grounded opponent while the small amount of water put onto the field gets frozen over, somehow? All in a Sandstorm where Baltoy and Gligar have the best vision anyway?

    I'll take my chances based on the last round.

    Sorry, guys, but I might need a 1-day reffing extension. I have two other matches to ref, I'll have at most another hour tonight, and I'll have limited access to a computer tomorrow. I'll ref this as fast as I can, though, and it will definitely be up Monday.

    Round 3 Begin!

    I know, I'm a tad late getting this round up, but better late than never, right? Anyway, summary of the round: I'm calling Deck Knight's move legal, with the explanation that you're moving pieces on a chess board and Deck hastily rushes his piece across the board and slams it down on its new space. Confusion succeeds, but Pengwin jerks his neck at the last second to avoid hitting Cid and the attack shoots off into nowhere.

    Next round, Cid gets nuked by two Earthquakes, while Pengwin pulls of a Yawn. Unfortunately, Dragon Tail cancels Yawn, but it does also cancel Power Trick.

    Earthquake finishes off Cid, and Extrasensory finishes off Pengwin. Again, sorry for the crappy flavor, but I really wanted this match to continue.

    Well Well, a few new targets to deal with.

    Bishop, start with Trick Room to turn the tides. King and ARMageddon will thank you later, as you can turn the tables on Don Krow. Then use Ancientpower on Danse Macabre to bury it, and finish with Earth Power on Danse Macabre.
    If Danse Macabre uses Taunt on the first action, bust it up with Earth Power.

    Knight, begin with a Acrobatics on Don Krow to strike it and intercept any attacks. Then Earthquake the field again, hopefully hitting a downed Danse Macabre. Finish up with an Acrobatics on Don Krow.

    Bishop: Trick Room ~ Ancientpower (Danse Macabre) ~ Earth Power (Danse Macabre)
    Use Earth Power if Danse Macabre Taunts action 1

    Knight: Acrobatics (Don Krow, disrupt its attack if possible) ~ Earthquake ~ Acrobatics (Don Krow).

    Alright, you two are both faster than Bishop, so let's try to finish it off with dual Shadow Balls before it can take action! Thanks to your dark-typing and the fact that you can fly and that you aren't mug slower than knight, you should have no trouble getting that Shadow ball off Don Krow. If it looks like his disruption might work though, combine a 5-clone double team with the shadow ball so you can get it off while knight bothers a clone.

    That should KO Bishop, so from there Don Krow either use confuse or nothing (if you Comboed). On your third action, use Night shade.

    Danse, with bishop out of the picture, I want you to use Toxic on knight, followed by Hex.

    Don Krow:
    Shadow ball (bishop)~confuse ray (knight)~ night shade (knight)
    IF the disruption looks like it will work, combine double team with shadow ball and push the other actions right.


    Danse:
    shadow ball (bishop)~toxic(knight)~(hex knight)
    IF bishop isn't KOed after action 1, though he should be, use shadow ball on him again for action 2 and push toxic right

    Round 4 Begin!

    With Deck Knight having captured two of TravelLog's pieces, the Log of Travel is forced to play his other two pieces: Don Krow the Murkrow and Danse Macabre the Lampent. Deck Knight wastes no time in combating these new threats, quickly moving Knight to A6. Knight whirls about in some Acrobatics while keeping a cautious eye on Don Krow, while TravelLog appears to be deciding between moving Don Krow to SB6 and Don Krow to SBDT31. He takes too long with his decision, however, and Knight simply goes for the kill, scoring a critical hit on the darkly-plumed Mafia boss. TravelLog catches Don Krow in midair and moves him to SB6, finally making up his mind. Don Krow releases a ball of shadows from his beak, leaving Deck Knight's Bishop incredibly low on health. TravelLog then moves Danse Macabre to SB5. The eerie lamp wants to prove his worth, so he too releases a Shadow Ball that connects effortlessly with Bishop. Danse Macabre tried hard enough; the attack does just enough damage to make Bishop faint, giving TravelLog his first capture.

    As the Sandstorm chips away at Don Krow and Danse Macabre, Deck Knight moves Knight to EQ6. The ensuing earthquake shakes up the field, but only Danse Macabre is actually affected by the massive tremor. TravelLog ponders for a moment before moving Don Krow to CR5. Don Krow fires some sort of laser light show from its mouth, severly Confusing Knight. With his second move, TravelLog moves Danse Macabre to T7. The lamp spits out a solid spray of some toxic substance, fatally Poisoning Knight.

    Deck Knight attempts to move Knight to A6, but his hand slips, instead landing on the dreaded space C3. Knight attempts more Acrobatics, but he is instead so Confused that he crash-lands, hurting himself in confusion. The poor Gligar can't catch a break, can he? TravelLog continues putting pressure on Knight with Don Krow to NS7. The area around Knight turns to a shade of black as dark as night, and Knight appears visibly pained on the inside. TravelLog ends this round with Danse Macabre to H6. As if the Night Shade wasn't enough, now Danse Macabre is putting a hex on Knight. The Sandstorm rages as Knight attempts to recover from the torment of this round.

    Alright guys! Lets finish off Knight!

    Don Krow:
    Night Shade (Knight)~Roost~Shadow Ball (ARMageddon).
    IF ARMaggedon Taunts you, replace Roost with another Shadow Ball

    Danse:
    Hex (Knight)~Taunt (ARMageddon)~trap ARMageddon on the ground with a nice cage made from a Fire Spin
    IF you are taunted by ARMaggedon before you can yourself use Taunt, move Fire Spin up one action and use Heat Wave on it (it will disrupt the Fire Spin, but given the amount of flames should almost ensure a nasty burn)!

    btw. Dummy I think you missed Lampent's Energy reductions.

    Alright Knight, time to go out with style. Start with a final Acrobatics on Don Krow. Your foes seem intent on taking you out, so lets finish with style. Keep using Acrobatics on Don Krow until you're out.

    ARMageddon. Start this off with a Encore Danse Macabre's Hex, making it repeat the attack. Then Earth Power Danse Macabre. Finish with Trick Room.

    Knight: Acrobatics (Don Krow) ~ Acrobatics (Don Krow) ~ Acrobatics (Don Krow)

    ARMageddon: Encore (Danse Macabre Hex) ~ Earth Power ( Danse Macabre) ~ Trick Room

    I didn't, I just inadvertently put them next to its attack in place of the (-). Nice catch. The reffing for this will be up tomorrow since I'm about to go to bed.

    Round 5 Begin!

    His piece may be a bit confused, but Deck Knight's mind is clear. He deftly moves Knight to A6 and lets his Gligar do the work. Knight performs some impressive Acrobatics, ultimately striking Don Krow for a large amount of damage. TravelLog maneuvers his way through the playing field to move Don Krow to NS7. Again Knight is surrounded by that painful Night Shade, dropping his health to dangerous levels. Deck Knight then makes an intriguing move: ARMageddon to E10. The tiny Breezi begins clapping profusely; TravelLog, as with many superstars, basks in the praise for long enough that his turn for moving Danse Macabre expires. He'll just have to give an Encore performance and leave Danse Macabre at H5. The hex that Knight was afflicted with continues; the torment gradually becomes so all-consuming that Knight faints from exhaustion.

    As TravelLog collects his captured piece, he also moves Don Krow to R11. The bird lightly flutters down to the ground before roosting. He regains a sizable amount of health, but not attacking has given Deck Knight all the time he needs to move ARMageddon to EP7. Calling upon the power of the Earth, ARMageddon delivers a powerful blow to Danse Macabre's small lamp-like body. Speaking of Danse Macabre, TravelLog, still reveling in his glory, fails to move him, forcing another Hex. Unfortunately, Knight was already returned to his Poke Ball, meaning the attack does nothing. TravelLog, I would advise paying more attention in future rounds. :P

    TravelLog finally snaps out of his euphoria and moves twice: Don Krow to SB6 and Danse Macabre to FS3. Don Krow's Shadow Ball strikes first, simultaneously lowering ARMageddon's Special Defense. This adds additional damage to Danse Macabre's Fire Spin, which pins ARMageddon to the floor. Despite being in a tight spot, Deck Knight maneuvers through the heat-seeking flames to move ARMageddon to TR10. Suddenly, the room begins warping, like reality is being distorted; looks like ARMageddon has set up a Trick Room, allowing slower Pokemon to move earlier for 5 rounds! But what's this? In spite of her treacherous situation, ARMageddon has remained Persistent, boosting Trick Room's duration to 6 rounds! What a feel-good story.

    End Round 5
