Hi there, unless you're participating, don't post until the conclusion of the match. Anyways, welcome to this battle between Deck Knight & Dummy007. Here's the two challenge posts... Our Location for today's battle? Arena: Muckraker Swamp This old bayou is the home of the lowest scum on earth: paparazzi and attack journalists. Don't be surprised if the next candidate for the Edward R. Murrow Award shows up with his flash camera. Deep in this scummy pond, the Kingfisher scuttles about doing his dirty deeds and everyone follows. But enough about the history, Muckraker Swamp is used for a reason: it has the ideal topography for finding sleaze. The bayou is about 2 feet deep in swampy muck. The muddy material is interspersed with trees whose roots delve below the floor. Their leaves provide a kind of canopy for the arena, but the actual spacing between each tree is fairly large, about 15 feet each at the bases. Although the arena is moist, the ground underneath the muck is solid enough for seismic attacks to work. The muck disgusts Pokemon that aren't used to it, and will inflict Toxic Poisoning on any Pokemon that doesn't learn Mud Sport, Mud-Slap, Mud Shot, Mud Bomb, or Muddy Water in its Level-Up movepool. The only other alternative is flying or floating above it, or otherwise being immune to Poison. Be careful though, as if the Pokemon is knocked in the swamp, it will be inflicted with Toxic. Beware of the Paparazzi, they may flash their cameras... Lastly the Order of Operations, which we should already know how it goes, so i won't post them. Now, onto the action. First is Deck Knight's twosome & abilities, then Dummy's twosome, abilities, & actions, then Deck's actions, then I'll ref. Shall we begin? I bet we shall.
