    Dogfish44 vs. Cartoons

    This somewhat epic battle between two trainers of transcendentally mediocre calibre takes place in an abandoned construction site.

    Arena Description (open)
    It's clear that the construction site is abandoned, and hasn't been worked on for some time. The scaffold has rusted, parts of it have collapsed and tattered tarpaulins flutter forlornly in the breeze. Boards once meticulously stacked for use now lie rotten and discarded. Moss grows on the piles of bricks which have been dumped to one side. Deep trenches once dug for foundations are now filled with muddy puddles a foot deep, and weeds are beginning to approach, brambles encroaching from a wild area beyond the back fence.

    The abandonment seems sudden; tools lie abandoned - a drill propped up against a half-built wall, a spirit level lying on a floor which, once flat, has developed a slant as the foundations collapse into the sticky mud surrounding the site.

    It is cold now, the sun on the verge of dipping below the horizon. The biting wind only exacerbates the effect of the rapidly dropping temperature. Enter Dogfish and Cartoons.

    Vital Spirit (Innate):
    This Pokemon has a high vitality and alertness making it immune to sleep induced by other Pokemon. Its normal state of sleeplessness makes it take 1 less damage/action from Ghost Curse. If it is put to sleep by a Pokemon with Mold Breaker it will wake up the next action.

    Okay, let's get this sideshow of a match started!

    Handsome, use the winds to stay high and lead off with three straight Gusts

    If it attempts any String Shots, spin some right back with Copycat.

    Start off with a String Shot to ground it.

    Then Bug Bite that berry, then Poison Sting.

    Breezi [Handsome] (M)

    Handsome seizes the initiative in making the first move, tapping the power of the wind and sending a vicious Gust down at Trouser Snake. As the maelstrom of swirling air connects, it knocks Trouser Snake flying through the air. While injured, the little bug has lost none of its opportunism and as it careers backwards it launches off a String Shot. The sticky string doesn't hit exactly on target, but gets tangled in Handsome's parachute, forcing it to make an emergency landing. Trouser Snake then lands painfully.

    Despite the string, Handsome is the faster to react and, using Copycat, sends back a stream of the same string. Trouser Snake, closing if not rapidly then steadily, is slowed down, but Handsome's parachute is now more of a hindrance than a help and, encumbered by Trouser Snake's string, it is powerless to avoid the impending Bug Bite. Trouser Snake then settles down, happily munching its pilfered Pecha Berry.

    Not much the worse for wear, and eager to have its revenge, Handsome sends another Gust arcing towards its insect nemesis. Trouser Snake, unable to stop itself from being hurled backwards, just has time to launch a Poison Sting. It connects, scratching Handsome, but does not manage to jettison its load of poison into the Breezi's bloodstream.

    Handsome seizes the brief moment of respite to shake itself free of Weedle's string.

    Poison Sting *3

    If it will gust, switch to String Shot on the floor, using the gust of wind to swing around that point and ram into Handsome!

    Take the opportunity to Knock Off that Oran Berry.

    Next, Disable that Poison Sting (feel free to chuckle at the results).

    Finish the round by slapping it with another Gust.

    While Trouser Snake is still struggling with the string bound tightly around its body, Handsome leaps in to deliver a swift Knock Off. Trouser Snake cries out as it is deprived of its Oran Berry, which arcs through the air to land several metres away. In retaliation, the Weedle lashes out to catch Handsome with its stinger. This time, the Poison Sting is driven deep into Handsome's body, but being Poison-type it is able to absorb the toxins.

    Acting quickly, before Trouser Snake can strike again, Handsome focuses and manages to Disable Poison Sting. Looking confused, Trouser Snake stares around blankly, looking senile in an odd insect way.

    Handsome summons another Gust to buffet Trouser Snake, but before the wind can strike, Trouser Snake latches onto a scaffolding pole with its String Shot and swings around, avoiding the lethal gale. It is slightly blown off course, however, and - while unhurt - flies past its intended target of Handsome to land a few feet away, shaking off the last of the Breezi's string.

    Time to step up the offense.

    Fire off a Shadow Ball first. Then Shadow Ball again. Finally, mix it up with a Shadow Ball!

    If it tries to String Shot again, rip it apart with a Razor Wind.

    Wait for the Shadow Ball, then use String Shot to grap it and throw it back!

    Then, use String Shot after he fires that Shadow Ball, and throw it back again.

    Finish up the round by taking advantage of Razor Wind's large charge up time by... wrapping Handsome's body up like a mummy in String Shot!

    Handsome quickly prepared a Shadow Ball and hurled it at Trouser Snake, who remained disciplined and waited patiently in the face of roiling, menacing shadows that whispered as they flew through the air. The hapless Weedle attempted to fire a String Shot, but the sticky string could not find any purchase on the barely tangible Shadow Ball and could not stop it from striking home.

    Trouser Snake had no time to recover before another Shadow Ball arced towards it. Confused, it attempted to use Sling Shot again, with similar results. It was thrown back across the arena.

    Tired of the seemingly endless string assaults, Handsome focused and prepared a Razor Wind The wind gradually began to swirl around it, forming sharp blades which were just visible, a slight distortion in the air with a razor-sharp edge. Confused by the lack of attacks, the battered Trouser Snake attempted another doomed Sling Shot, which was torn apart by the blades of wind which whirled around Handsome. Finally ready, the Breezi glared at Trouser Snake and sent the blades sweeping towards it. They bit deep. Very deep. [Critical Hit!]

    You're up, Dogfish. Sorry, but this is a HORRIBLE matchup and there isn't a whole lot you can do to repair that. Disable runs out on the second action of the next round.

    Heh, not long now. Evo counter here I come!

    String Shot to swing around using the scaffolding and ram into him.

    Then repeat the above Swing Shot manouvre.

    Finish up with a Bug Bite!

    Okay, well, let's put the poor thing out of its misery.

    Blow it away with Gust. Then Gust it again. And then Gust it again.

    Maybe aim it a pile of bricks or the drill or something.

    Handsome narrowed its eyes, ready to end the contest. He whipped up the wind until it howled through the building site, sending Gusts that ripped at debris and flung the helpless Trouser Snake into the air, string trailing behind it. The wind picked up bricks and shards of wood, slamming them into the helpless Weedle. It collapsed to the floor, unconscious.

    Considering I had no way of doing more than 5 damage a turn, except String Shot, not too bad.

    Blah...

    I was aiming for no loss of health whatsoever, so you done good, I think.

    Considering this is the first completed match of Smogon's ASB, let's clarify the rewards?

    Dogfish and I get 1 counter for

    Evolution
    Moves
    Trainer
    Dreamworld

    each

    and I get an additional KO counter which I can apply to any of those?

    Ice Eyes also gets 2 ref counters?

    Alas, Weedle must spawn more overlords before it can evolve into Kakuna and research Harden. A pity, as that might have been able to-ohwait Breezi has Gust, that wouldn't have worked.

    Still, fun match.

    I admire Dogfish's ingenuity during the match, but String Shotting Shadowball was a bad play. Note: try a spiderman like dodge, i.e. String shot a rock and zipline Weedle to the rock, like a grapping hook except horizontal.
