    We gather here today in the ASB Arena to mourn the passing of Leethoof's...wait, I'm getting ahead of myself. Maybe, if he's really lucky, he might tie win. Here's the arena, in case you were wondering.
    ASB Arena (open)

    NEUTRALITY


    tee hee


    Some pointless rules put in place by someone:
    And now, the Pokemon (only one of whom stands a >10% chance at winning...):
    Leethoof's Reef (open)

    [​IMG]
    Cradily [Reef] (Female)
    Nature: Quiet (+ Sp.Atk, -Speed)

    Type:
    Grass: Grass STAB; immunity to Leech Seed and Worry Seed. 50% reduction in status effect chance of oncoming "powder" attacks. More mobile in areas with strong natural light sources. Superior senses in tall grass and forest areas. Able to use Wrap and Bind without losing focus.
    Rock: Rock STAB; reduce damage from all special attacks by two (2) Base Attack Power during Sandstorm. Able to use Sand Tomb without losing focus.

    Stats:
    HP: 100
    Atk: Rank 3
    Def: Rank 4
    SpA: Rank 4 (+)
    SpD: Rank 4
    Spe: 37 (43/1.15) (+10% enemy accuracy)
    Size Class: 3
    Weight Class: 4
    Base Rank Total: 19

    EC: 6/6
    MC: 3
    DC: 5/5

    Abilities:
    Suction Cups: (Innate) This Pokemon has sticky suction cups that anchor down to prevent it from being moved or scared away by Roar or Whirlwind. It will hold its ground against Dragon Tail and Overhead Throw and will not be forced out in a switch battle.
    Storm Drain (DW): (Innate) This Pokemon lures all water attacks to itself, altering their course away from partner Pokemon. It absorbs the water and increases its Special Attack by one (1) stage. A boost gained this way by an opponent's attack will be maintained at the end of each round. Self-targeted attacks do not maintain boosts.

    Attacks (20):
    Astonish
    Constrict
    Acid
    Ingrain
    Confuse Ray
    Gastro Acid
    AncientPower
    Swallow
    Stockpile
    Spit Up
    Energy Ball
    Wring Out

    Mirror Coat
    Recover
    Barrier
    Synthesis
    Earth Power

    Toxic
    Grass Knot
    Rock Slide
    Giga Drain
    Protect

    Sludge Wave

    Engineer Pikachu's Hyomu (open)

    [​IMG]
    Syclant* [Hyomu] (M)
    Nature: Mild (Special Attack increased by *, Defense reduced by *)

    Type: Ice / Bug
    Ice STAB; immune to freezing and Sheer Cold, no vision loss or damage in Hail or snowstorm conditions, perfectly accurate and 30% Protect breaking Blizzard in Hail. Superior senses and mobility in frozen caves and other frigid arenas.

    Bug STAB; More mobility in dense brush or forest conditions. Gain an extra guaranteed attack on multi-hit moves.

    Abilities:
    Compoundeyes: (Innate) This Pokemon’s complex eyes give it a comprehensive view of the field, making its attack 30% (x1.3) more accurate.
    Mountaineer: (Innate) This Pokemon is used to scaling and avoiding rocks. It can avoid damage from Stealth Rock when it switches in, and one Rock-type attack per round.
    Technician (Unlocked): (Innate) This Pokemon is more skilled at performing weaker moves, causing any of their attacks that normally deal 6 or below base damage to have their base damage multiplied by 1.5. (e.g. Aerial Ace goes from 6 to 9, Mach Punch goes from 4 to 6, etc.) The Energy Cost for a one-hit or two-hit attack is increased by one (1). Each hit in a multi-hit move is boosted by one (1) damage, and the Energy Cost for mutli-hit attacks is increased by two (2).

    Unfortunately, it's impossible for me to 1RKO unless I get super hit Icicle Spear or something -_-

    Icicle Spear - Icicle Spear - Icicle Spear
    IF (Recover OR Synthesis is used) AND (Cradily is not Taunted) THEN (Taunt instead)

    oh yeah exp share too

    Leethoof, your actions are currently illegal, as Cradily does not know Hidden Power (at least, not here). Please edit your actions accordingly.

    Round 1 Begin!

    Hyomu opens fire on Reef immediately with a deadly Icicle Spear that strikes SIX TIMES due to Hyomu's Bug typing. Reef is visibly shaken from such a frosty blow, but that doesn't mean she can't strike back with a mighty Rock Slide! Sadly, either Engineer really needs to update his 'mons or Leethoof needs to read the DAT more often, because Hyomu's Mountaineer causes Rock Slide to miss completely. (Hyomu = West Virginia?)

    Deciding that consistency is a good idea, Hyomu mercilessly blasts Reef with another Icicle Spear. This one, however, only hits four times, meaning Reef has an excellent opportunity to deliver a powerful attack. Indeed, she attempts an unprecedented SUPER ANCIENTPOWER OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION, which would have done a ridiculous amount of damage...if Mountaineer hadn't kicked in again and saved Hyomu from another death. Excellent actions, Leethoof. @_@

    Hyomu then proceeds to hit SIX MORE #@^%&*$! TIMES with Icicle Spear, downing Reef with ease. It is incredibly apparent that Engineer Pikachu has won the battle, but will he win the war? Short answer: Probably.


    Alternatively, Reef could alter history by not wasting actions against Mountaineer and instead Protecting herself twice with a Gastro Acid in between. Hyomu still uses his amazing Icicle Spear to ruin Reef's energy, but Reef doesn't faint this time. Thanks for making me WORK for my UC, Leethoof...

    End Round 1

    Just the Facts (open)

    Icicle Spear (Syclant) [Hit # Roll: 7706 {6}, Crit Rolls: 2654, 5335, 1043, 2196, 4014, 6789; 6 hits, no crits]
    (24 + 3 + 4*1.5 – 4*1.5) * 1.5 = 40.5 ~ 41 damage
    Energy Cost: 8

    Rock Slide (Cradily) [WV MOUNTAINEERED]
    Energy Cost: 5


    Icicle Spear (Syclant) [Hit # Roll: 4279 {4}, Crit Rolls: 4321, 3306, 7878, 8052; 4 hits, no crits]
    (16 + 3 + 4*1.5 – 4*1.5) * 1.5 = 28.5 ~ 29 damage
    Energy Cost: 12

    SUPER ANCIENTPOWER OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION (Cradily) [CLEMSON IN THE ORANGE BOWL]
    Energy Cost: 23


    Icicle Spear (Syclant) [Hit # Roll: 9863 {6}, Crit Rolls: 6763, 3335, 3387, 6437, 1833, 6371; 6 hits, no crits]
    (24 + 3 + 4*1.5 – 4*1.5) * 1.5 = 40.5 ~ 41 damage
    Energy Cost: 16
    Cradily fainted!



    Just for kicks, I decided to test Reef's two actions that failed to see if Mountaineer affected the outcome. Here goes:

    Revisionist History:
    Rock Slide (Cradily) [Hit Roll: 9827; missed anyway]
    Had it hit, however: [Crit Roll: 7157; no crit]
    (8 + 3 + 3*1.5 – 2*1.5) * 2.25 = 28.125 ~ 28 damage

    SUPER ANCIENTPOWER OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION (Cradily) [Crit Roll: 2626, Boost Rolls: 9950, 2753; no crit, no boosts]
    (13.5 + 3 + 4*1.5 – 3*1.5) * 2.25 = 40.5 ~ 41 damage

    So, in conclusion: Mountaineer actually didn't matter. What a troll ability.




    And, again, I have to recalc this round. Here's the final set of calcs:
    Protect (Cradily) [Success]
    Damage Blocked: 40.5
    Energy Cost: 23

    Icicle Spear (Syclant) [Hit # Roll: 7706 {6}, Crit Rolls: 2654, 5335, 1043, 2196, 4014, 6789; 6 hits, no crits]
    (24 + 3 + 4*1.5 – 4*1.5) * 1.5 = 40.5 ~ 41 damage
    Energy Cost: 8


    Icicle Spear (Syclant) [Hit # Roll: 4279 {4}, Crit Rolls: 4321, 3306, 7878, 8052; 4 hits, no crits]
    (16 + 3 + 4*1.5 – 4*1.5) * 1.5 = 28.5 ~ 29 damage
    Energy Cost: 12

    Gastro Acid (Cradily) [Success]
    Energy Cost: 6
    Hyomu was Gastro Acided! (6 actions)


    Protect (Cradily) [Success]
    Damage Blocked: 31.5
    Energy Cost: 20

    Icicle Spear (Syclant) [Hit # Roll: 9863 {6}, Crit Rolls: 6763, 3335, 3387, 6437, 1833, 6371; 6 hits, no crits]
    (18 + 3 + 4*1.5 – 4*1.5) * 1.5 = 31.5 ~ 32 damage
    Energy Cost: 16


    Prize Time!
    Leethoof and Engineer Pikachu each receive 2 CC.
    Reef (Cradily) receives 4 MC.
    Hyomu (Syclant) receives 4 MC and 1 KOC.
    Dummy007 receives 3 UC.

    Good game, guys, although Engineer definitely had the edge in every way possible. Good luck in the future, and thanks for the relatively free UC!


    Sadly, this isn't the end. Leethoof, it's your turn to order; try and ignore Engineer's outdated info this time. :D

    Round 2 Begin!

    Mad about not getting his one-round KO, Hyomu smacks Reef with another barrage of projectile icicles, but they don't seem to be quite as effective as last round's were. Reef, whose health is starting to run low, responds with a Fail Edge that inflicts a ridiculous amount of damage for an unboosted Cradily attack. Too bad Mountaineer works like the real WVU Mountaineer football team: for one round only...

    Reef then magically outspeeds Hyomu for the round, using some of her ancient power to, well...you get the point. It seems like this is exactly what Hyomu was waiting for, however, as Mr. Freezybug summons forth a massive avalanche that is somehow boosted in power by having taken damage already. Pokemon is so strange...

    Regardless, Hyomu gets fed up with waiting for his 4 MC and shoots some more icicles at Reef, two of which hit critically, scoring a solid KO. (They don't matter too much, though, as Reef would have fainted anyway.) This means that, for real this time, Engineer Pikachu has won the match! AND THE CROWD GOES home.

    End Round 2

    Dummy007 receives 3 UC FOR REAL.

    Good game (again), guys! Hyomu definitely had the advantage, but Reef still managed to do some damage before she went down. The best of luck to both of you in the future! (Also, Leethoof, if you haven't read the post title yet, do that now. :P)
