Lead this off with a Shadow Punch, Then Shadow Ball, then another Shadow Punch.
If Claydol uses Solarbeam, set up Substitute (20HP) while its charging to take the hit. If you have a Substitute up while Claydol uses Solarbeam, use Astonish and try to flinch it before the attack executes.

Deck Knight and SimonSays suddenly realised that subconcious bloodthirst is gone - looking around, they find no trace of the Mysterious Stranger. "Where did he go?" asks the experienced veteran. Before his opponent can respond, down swoops a Nargacuga, alighting gracefully on the edge of the barricades.
"Fear not, for I am Glacier-Mamoswine's ally. He is saved from the clutches of the dark stranger, but he is concerned with his friends, so he bade me to fly over and to do what I can."
Such was the telepathic message from the sleek monster. "Hey, I know y- alright, Deck, we can trust him."
"You sure? Well then, let's continue on, shall we?"
And Regisand-Claydol suddenly glowed, as Rocks levitated with its telekinesis and scattered with shotgun-force all over the place - some dug into Regisand-Claydol, but more flew towards Deck Knight's side of the tower. Enraged by such a taunt on his master, VoltronForce-Golurk threw (literally threw) a punch as a respond, sending Regisand-Claydol spinning. It appeared, however, that it was the latter's plan, after all...
"Yeah, Regisand! Hit'em with all you got!"
And with that cry from SimonSays, Regisand-Claydol accelerated on the ground despite the cluttering debris, this time glowing gold with a force that ripped a construct apart! As the dust settled, it turns out that the golem is one of cloth, however, not one of rock and steel. Horrified that its plan failed, Regisand-Claydol attempted to evade the ensuing onslaught by Teleporting back towards its Pokeball, yet inevitably VoltronForce-Golurk left a pair of parting gifts - knucklebones and crystal balls infused with the latter's ghastly life-force. Faced with a conundrum, SimonSays now grasps his belt, mentally calculating his team on hand.

"... Gentlemen... Lady... Claydol. We've been at this for a long time. Really long time. And I know there's more to this game that writing up some really cool flavour and then spamming Super Effective moves and using Bide and Taunt and Double Team all the time. There are gimmicks out there. Good ones. And all it takes is a little tenacity, a little courage, and friends. My dears, you are all my friends. The man across from us is our friend. And we have friends at our back, supporting us. Lending us a Helping Hand (figuratively) and pushing us on to be better. To fight harder. And showing us the way through.
"Sleuth! Get back in there and muscle through!"
"You, sir, are a dork."
Toxic ~ Ice Beam ~ Shadow Ball
IF Focus Punch is used when you would use Toxic, use Ice Beam and push actions back.
IF Substitute is used when you would use Toxic, change action string from that action to Ice Beam ~ Confusion ~ Toxic.

Two slow, inexorable forces clashes... "Do a SubPunch strategy!" VoltronForce-Golurk responds by starting a defensive game, using a Substitute ("Again,") to minimize his damage input. However, a critically-targeted Beam of frigid Ice from Sleuth-Slowking instantly takes out the fake! "Way to go!" cheered SimonSays, but Deck Knight takes the setback in stride.
"Scare him," was the terse reply, and VoltronForce-Golurk disappears, only to reappear in front of Sleuth-Slowking with fists raised menacingly. Astonished, Sleuth-Slowking took a step back, but it wasn't far enough from the hulking construct - he took a Shadowy blow from VoltronForce-Golurk's Punches! But, was tha- what a courageous tactic! When most would have shirked away from such a blow, Sleuth-Slowking stepped in and with a breath, infected Toxic upon the walking automaton! ("Sounds like a really bad case of mouth odour. Simon probably needs to buy some mints after this one.")

"Time to end this," announced Deck Knight. VoltronForce-Golurk clanked, so loud that Simon flinched due to Astonishment, but Sleuth-Slowking stood his ground, as befits a monarch hearing his own dirge, and tapped into the golem's memories, Disabling VotronForce-Golurk's innate punching technique. But that didn't stop the construct, who spewed a Ball of Shadows that swiftly KO'ed Sleuth-Slowking. Hackles rose on Nargacuga's neck but otherwise it kept calm, however the skies didn't - the clouds descend, and it suddenly pours..

"This dragon really needs to chill out. He'll wish we weren't so Quiet after this."
VoltronForce, crush your hazard-prone enemy with an Ice Beam + Ice Beam combination, which should KO it after it eats hazard damage. This should exhaust your energy supply, but I'm not particularly averse to a sacrificial attacks. Losing a second Pokemon was more than SimonSays bargained for. Not that you'll be around, but end with a Chill...
Ice Beam + Ice Beam ~ Cool Down ~ Chill
I also noted an error from The Royal Guard earlier. He started the Gravity countdown at 4 rounds (which he put as 12 actions), but because I used it with Fidgit (which has Persistent) as the last action of its round it should last for 5 rounds, meaning Gravity will last for this round and one more additional round.

Ace-Dragonite stands tall in his element, despite suffering terribly from the heavy gravity that ripped through his bulky form - or was that the earth turning against him? Barely flying straight against the storm, Nargacuga witnessed the final act of the the Dragon and the Golem...
Ace-Dragonite lashes out with a heavy Tail imbued with the element of Rainfall, it's force staggering VoltronForce-Golurk for perhaps the last time... And the statement proved to be true. The construct glowed white before summoning a Frozen Stream of destruction in retaliation. The Ice energy inimical to Dragonkind took Ace-Dragonite down, with VoltronForce-Golurk falling an instant after!

"It's about to get FIDGETTY in here. Your ARMageddon shall continue!"
There are few Pokemon weak to Poison STAB. Sawsbuck is unfortunately one of them.
ARMageddon, lets start this off by Taunting our foe so he can't support his teammates. Follow up with successive Sludge Bombs.
If Sawsbuck tries to evade Taunt with a non-damaging evasive move, set another layer of Spikes, then move your actions back, this substitution is in effect if Sawsbuck uses both A1 and A2 to avoid Taunt.
Taunt ~ Sludge Bomb ~ Sludge Bomb
If Sawsbuck uses a non-damaging evasive move to avoid Taunt, set a layer of Spikes each time and push actions back.
Ignoring the fact that his Fidgit is squirming from the digging debris with his opponent, confident in his advantage, Deck Knight simply orders, "Taunt the self-important royalty." But for once, ARMageddon-Fidgit did not manage to pull the prank, as Prince-Sawsbuck concentrated on building Protection around his regal name!
Trying to outplay Deck Knight valiantly, Simon then yelled, "Leech him!" to which Prince-Sawsbuck complied, but the Horn attack was countered by ARMageddon-Fidgit hurling Bombs of earth in return, the soil Sludged by his touch! Startled, the regal buck decides to Pass the Baton over to his Trainer. So who would be facing the many-armed digger next?
Action 1: Pointed rocks slammed into Sawsbuck and Fidgit! 9 damage (Fidgit)
12 damage (Sawsbuck) The Spikes dug into Sawsbuck's hooves!

IF Taunt is used, use Ice Punch + Focus Punch combination and push actions back IF Earthquake was subbed.
IF Circle Throw would be used AND you are not Taunted, use Detect that action (Non consequtively) and push actions back IF Earthquake was subbed.
ARMageddon-Fidgit suddenly shifts the gravito-magnetic forces upon Sky Tower, enhancing the Gravity and unknowingly enforced the battlements, whilst dealing no additional effects to his opponent - apparently. Clubs-Lucario landed with an Earthquake that would've wrecked the Tower had not for ARMageddon-Fidgit's timely intervention, but he did succeed in shaking the lodged Spikes and Rocks while tossing the ARMy around. Discontented, Deck Knight orders, "Let's see how many more Spikes you can handle, hm?"
Simon immediately counters, "Punch him in the face!" Clubs-Lucario did so, but even his speedy Ice-coated fists cannot catch up with ARMageddon-Fidgit's pranks. And the latter pulls a last trick from his many sleeves - a wave from his hands, and Clubs-Lucario suddenly froze, recalling something without success.... Man its so hot in here Vanilluxe would've melt on the spot. Good thing nobody brought one. Didn't it just rained some time ago? ("Sniffs... I smell crisps... or was it my fur? Need a quck dip anyway.")
