    Format: 1 v 2 (Hmm... what's a word for this? Threesome seems oddly innapropiate) EngEdit: SQUASH
    2 Recoveries
    5 Chills
    3 Day DQ
    Abilities = All
    Items = Off
    Switch = N/A

    Arena: 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. Functionally, it's basically the ASB arena without an external water source.

    Team Waterwarrior:

    Houdin the Abra (open)

    [pimg]63[/pimg]
    Abra* (Houdin) Male
    Nature: Modest
    Type: Psychic
    Psychic STAB; less susceptible to blinding, more susceptible to sound-based assaults as far as locking on with Psychic attacks, can lift and throw opponents with Psychic attacks regardless of weight difference. Psychic-type attacks are not godlike and cannot be used as a catchall for Disabling, Binding, and redirecting opposing attacks.

    Abilities:
    Synchronize:
    (Innate) Pokemon with this ability mentally link their condition to an opposing Pokemon and pass on any status inflicted on them to their foe. Due to their body structure, Poison types cannot be poisoned and Fire types cannot be burned in this manner.
    Inner Focus: (Innate) When an opponent attempts to flinch this Pokemon, it stands firm and continues its attack. If it has another ability that would be activated by flinching, that ability activates.
    Magic Guard (DW): (Innate) This Pokemon is infused with a powerful psycho-electric energy that makes it immune to damage from Hail, Sandstorm, and damage from Leech Seed, Poisoning, and Burn. It can still attack itself in confusion, but will not absorb any damage from it. Additionally, the energy protects the Pokemon from its own reckless recoil attacks.

    "Ok guys. You're up against a fully grown, fully trained Charizard, and neither of you have ever been in battle before. We can do this! ...Right?"

    Houdin: Guard Swap -> Psychic -> Psyshock
    Edit: substitutions for "status move" is illegal upon further inspection. Brace yourselves, you're going to get screwed by Heat Wave.
    Draco: Thunder Wave -> Toxic -> Waterfall

    "Try to make this go into the 2nd round alright guys?"

    I'm not entirely sure "status move" is a legal substitution, but no matter.

    Fly (Dratini) - Sunny Day - Heat Wave

    EDIT: It looks like multi-target moves and some form of protection/evasion will be key to succeeding in the Colosseum.

    So... Dogfish44...

    And I suppose that you're right. For the ref, I suppose trying to cripple the strongmon with tons of status like I tried to is pretty much the only way for the weakmons to not get crushed like they're twigs, but of course when its strongmon v strongmon (like in the last testing), then straight-out attacking will work.

    Trying a vareint format

    Welcome to the Colosseum!

    ...

    Fine, WELCOME TO THE COLOSSEUM TRAINING AREA! Scared by my loud announcing voice, Hades Flys upwards (-10 EN). Houdin's Guard Swap (-4 EN) and Draco's Thunder Wave (-7 EN) fly beneath the beast, who crashes into Draco with a large Impact force (Hit 2973 - Yes ; Crit 4515 - No ; 15 Damage)

    [​IMG]: 100/90
    [​IMG]: 40/46
    [​IMG]: 30/43​

    Hades now practices inter-god communications, and Helios agrees with the sentiment that it should be a Sunny Day (-9 EN). Houdin's response is to zap the beast down with a Psychic (Crit 3912 - No ; Lower Sp.Def 5739 - No ; 9 Damage / -6 EN). Draco also does well, a Toxic blast poisoning Hades (Hit 1851 = Yes ; -7 EN). Hades is a little bit sickened by the damage the Posion (1 Damage) does already, as his trade for Solar Power (1 Damage).

    [​IMG]: 89/81 ~ Txc Lvl 1
    [​IMG]: 40/40
    [​IMG]: 30/36​

    Draco's eyes glow. Something ain't right, as a huge cry reminiscient of Ho-Oh echoes across the arena. A monumental Heat Wave (Hit 8617 4030 - Yes & Yes ; Crit 9867 316 - No & Yes ; Burn 2541 2197 - No & No ; 19 DMG (H) & 14 DMG (D) / -6 EN) smashes across the arena, burning the white pickett fence, and causing great pain for Houdin and Draco, Critting the latter. Houdin doesn't let up though, a Psyshock visciously wounding the brute (Crit 6094 ; 12 Damage / -5 EN). Draco also keeps attacking, a Waterfall (Crit 2774 ; 11 Damage / -5 EN). It doesn't look too good for the mini guys, who are wounded heavily by Poison (1 Damage) still, and it seems to be growing in power. Unlike Solar Power, but that sings too (1 Damage).

    If Dratini uses evasive Agility on action 1 ...
    • ... and Abra does not use evasive Teleport on action 1, change action 1 to Flamethrower (Abra) and push remaining actions back.

    "Dear god, we actually made it to round 2! Will we still die a horrible and painful death? ABSOLUTELY!"

    Houdin: Guard Swap -> Psyshock + Psyshock combo -> cooldown
    Draco: ExtremeSpeed -> Thunder Wave -> Dragon Rush
    (A2 and A3 assume I miraculously survive the DClaw)

    Continuing the match, Draco fires off an Extremespeed (Crit 5995 - No ; 7 Damage / -6 EN). Unfortunately, going into melee combat wasn't the best move, as Hades slices the serpent into Sushi with a Dragon Claw (Crit 5984 - No ; 20 Damage / -6 EN). Evidently nervous, Houdin uses Guard Swap (-6 EN) to bolster his defenses and lower Hades's shields. Hades then feels more pain from Poison and Solar Power (3 Damage).

    Glad to see a casualty, Hades fires a Flamethrower (Crit 256 - Yes ; Burn 2572 - No ; 23 Damage / -6 EN), Critting and KOing Houdin! Even the Poison and Solar Power pains feel weaker (3 Damage), as the match concludes.

    To me, it seems pretty balanced, at least in Rank 1. Sure, it was a bit easy for Objection, but, as I said, this would probably be one of the beginning battles. It's not too much of a breeze for the challenger either, as without evasive techniques like Fly or Dig, as well as moves that hit both the opponent's pokes, the ref still has a chance.

    Of course, as seen in the last testing, the question is: how should we balance this when we get to FE's?

    EDIT: There's also the fact that the ref HAS to rely on status to cripple in the beginning matches, or they'll just be demolished, which can be seen as a good or bad thing, of course.

    Well fortunately, your NFEs had offensive stats of rank 4 and rank 5, which is typical of FE pokemon, so I don't think much (if anything) would need to be changed to balance it for FEs.
