    Awesome, let's do this.
    I'll send out Galahad first.

    EDIT: Oops, Heavy Metal shouldn't be locked anymore.
    My bad.

    Here we go, Galahad!

    Lead with an Earthquake, then set up Stealth Rock, then Earthquake again!

    However, on any action you lose the speed tie, use Metal Burst and push actions back.

    Happy New Year everyone, and welcome to today's battle in the ASB Arena! Filling in for Roman and Irwin, I'm Sarah the Gardevoir...

    ...And I'm Jack the Charizard! Today's battle is between the veteran EndQuote and the rookie VFXCross. EndQuote has sent out his trusty Lairon, the incomparable Galahad!

    And on the other end of the field, Cross releases his Omanyte, Neptune! The battle is about to begin!

    Galahad decides to kick the new year off in style--with a massive Earthquake! Auld lang syne indeed!

    As impressive as that was, I don't think it fazed Neptune at all! He's even taunting Galahad! Talk about cockiness!

    Rookies tend to be that way, Sarah. But it seems Neptune has the talent to back it up--that Surf attack looks menacing! That should do a ton of damage to GalaOH ARCEUS IT'S COMING STRAIGHT FOR US!!!!!

    <splash>

    <cough> You all right Jack?

    Oof...I think so. At least I managed to protect my tail from getting wet.

    Phew. That's a relief. Anyway, back to the battle. That Surf was an excellent attack, and Galahad struggles to get back to his feet! Now he's flinging rocks at Neptune? That's low-class!

    Actually, that's his Stealth Rock attack. See how those stones are levitating? They'll damage any Pokemon of Cross's that come in after Neptune!

    I still think it's low, but as long as there's strategy involved. Here's Neptune's attack: a Hydro Pump! That looked painful for Galahad, he can't seem to find his footing!

    I think Neptune sees that too! Not backing down, he fires off another Surf! Oh dear, not another one...

    Here, let me help with that.

    Sarah used Light Screen!

    Thanks. We really need to get a more detached broadcast booth instead of standing on the sideline like this.

    I know! At least then you wouldn't lose my umbrella in a Sandstorm again.

    ...You're still sore about that, eh?

    Very. Do you know how much that cost?

    You can tell me during the commercial. Right now, Galahad seems to be...glowing?

    He shoots a burst of metal energy at Neptune, which connects for excellent damage! It's almost as if Galahad concentrated the pain he felt from that last Surf into a beam of energy!

    I think it's time we took a break. We'll be right back after a word from our sponsors!

    ...And furthermore, I won't let you borrow anything of mine ever again as long as both of us are alive!

    Please...for the last time, I didn't mean to--

    I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU "MEANT" TO DO! The fact is, you lost me my prized, [​IMG]60000, Hoenn-imported umbrella! I cherish that thing more than anything I own!

    Who spends that much on an umbrella, anyway?


    It doesn't matter! You owe me a new one! In fact--oh, we're back?

    ...

    ...Um...heh heh, let's get back to the battle, shall we...?

    Please.

    Neptune wins initiative, and sets up a layer of Spikes on EndQuote's side of the field! He seems to have taken a cue from Galahad's use of Stealth Rock earlier!

    Meanwhile, it looks like Galahad's bracing himself. His Endure technique will prevent him from being KOd by Neptune this round!

    He should still be careful to keep his Energy up, though--if he runs out, he'll still faint at the end of the round!

    Now he's Digging under the arena! Smart move, since that Surf was coming straight for it!

    And what's even better, you aren't affected, either!

    I know! For those of you listening on the radio, during the break I took the liberty of constructing a waterproof wooden platform for us to stand on. Nothing short of an Aggron's Earthquake could topple this thing!

    Don't tempt fate. What if Galahad evolves during this battle? Then you'll be eating those words.

    ...Don't interrupt me. I'm living in a fantasy world right now.

    ...Right. Anyway, Galahad just came up from the Dig, which did respectable damage to Neptune. Now he's Digging again? Odd.

    Yeah, but it did help Galahad avoid the oncoming Water Pulse. That's strategy for you. And that hit also did some decent damage, but Galahad's almost out of Energy--and HP! How long will he be able to hold out?

    No trainer has made a decisive blow yet, but the next round might decide the outcome! Who will strike first? Stick around!

    This figures to be a short round--both Pokemon are looking tired!

    It all comes down to this speed tie! Let's see who wins it, using my lucky d1000!

    Your what?

    My lucky thousand-side die! It's standard issue for any hardcore tabletop gamer!

    Hardcore what?

    You know, like Dungeons & Dragons?

    Oh, right. So that's what you and the others do every Friday.

    Yeah, but we'll discuss that later. There's a bout at stake here!

    <roll>

    ...It's a 657! Um...what exactly does that mean?

    It means that Neptune won the speed tie, and gets to move first!

    Here's the attack...it's another Surf! And that one looks like it put Galahad out of commission for good!

    That's right, Sarah! Galahad has been defeated!

    So, which Pokemon will EndQuote send in next? Find out when we get back!

    Aiieee! <flees>

    What the--what's gotten into you? Get back here!

    Get that thing out of here! I'm--I'm terrified of Wartortle!

    But why? This should be interesting...

    I'll explain the whole thing later, but the short version is, I had a bad experience with a Wartortle when I was a hatchling. Anyway, do you mind if I call the next few rounds from over here? Like, waaay over here?

    ...Fine, sure. Whatever. (You big baby.)

    I heard that!

    Anyway, Koops seems to have taken some damage from the Spikes on his side of the field! Unfazed, he charges forward, and nails Neptune with a Brick Break!

    Meanwhile, it looks like Neptune realizes he's out classed! Rather than attacking, he's setting up more Spikes to damage the next Pokemon when it comes in.

    That should make things interesting--many a time has the use of Spikes decided the match. Koops runs ahead, unaffected by the fresh Spikes, and lands another crippling Brick Break on Neptune!

    And again, rather than defending itself, Neptune lays one final layer of Spikes to cripple the next switch-in further!

    This Omanyte seems fairly streetwise for a rookie. Maybe he'll be his team's MVP in the future. I'm predicting a bright future for this young Pokemon, but for now, a third Brick Break puts the lights out! Neptune has fainted! So, who will Cross send out for the next round? Find out when we--

    <knock knock>

    Who is it?

    It's me and Irwin. We're back!

    Oh, hey Roman! How'd the raid go?

    ...I don't want to talk about it. Suffice it to say that I have a newfound respect for Delibird.

    Irwin? You, uh...all right?

    ...No, Mommy...I don't want to go to school today...It's too early...and I have the Pokerus...

    ...

    Yeah, he's pretty much lights out for now. He'll figure out where is in a bit. Where's Jack?

    Hiding from the Wartortle.

    I'm a Charizard statue...I'm not alive...you don't notice me...

    ...He needs therapy. Badly.

    ...We'll be right back, folks.

    Round 5: The One with the Low Damage Output

    I'm not feeling too creative at the moment, so there's no flavor for this update right now. If I feel inspired, I'll come back and edit it in. Sorry!

    Cross has sent out his next Pokemon! It's Daphne the deerling!

    All right, a Grass-type! Hopefully Daphne can put down that Wartortle once and for all!

    <with sarcasm> Wow, a talking Charizard statue. How intriguing.

    Laugh it up, Finhead.

    Wait a minute--those stones Neptune set up earlier...they're glowing! And now they're charging at Daphne! Ouch...that had to hurt!

    It looks like Daphne just took damage from Stealth Rock upon switching in! Nice strategy by EndQuote earlier!

    And now Koops looks to pile on the damage! He runs over and Fakes Daphne Out! That attack moved so fast, it made Daphne flinch!

    But now she's recovered, and hits Koops with a Return! But it doesn't appear to have done much damage...

    That's probably because of Koops's high Defense, Jack. It was able to weather the blow rather well.

    It must have made Koops furious nonetheless. He shoots a blob of Toxic waste at Daphne! But he appears to have missed wide left!

    Just like the kicker for LSU, eh?

    <crickets chirping>

    ...What the hell are you talking about?

    ...Never mind. Just Google it later.

    Right...anyway, here comes Daphne with a Wild Charge that...still doesn't do much damage! In fact, it did only 1 more damage than her Return did, but it cost her some HP as well!

    But look! Koops is glowing blue! And--pow! He retaliates with a Counter for some respectable damage! That was the most powerful attack of the round, as the momentum has slowed considerably!

    That's true, Sarah. Earlier we were watching fast-paced brawl, but now it's become a slower, more technical battle. This is getting exciting!

    So, what happens next? When will this stalemate be broken? Find out when we get back!

    Koops, your tough defense will surely see us through!

    Toxic ~ Ice Beam ~ Brick Break

    IF Thunder Wave (not in a combo) THEN Focus Punch and push actions back.

    Round 6--The One with the Poison

    Sorry about being late with the update. Also, I flavorized the previous round, in case you're curious.

    Daphne

    Energy: 87
    Other: Stealth Rock

    Daphne makes the first move here in Round 6, and nails Koops with another Return! Small damage or not, she continues to chip away at Koops! She won't give up!

    Speaking of Koops, he launches more Toxic waste at the Deerling, and this time he hits his mark! Daphne is now badly poisoned!

    That poison will continue to grow over the next few rounds. She'd better work quickly if she wants to KO Koops before she succumbs to the poison!

    Undaunted, Daphne dashes forward with another Wild Charge! She's evened the playing field now, as both Pokemon are starting to appear winded!

    But here's Koops's attack--an Ice Beam! It plays havoc with the Grass-type's homeostasis and does massive damage!

    And all the while, that poison damage continues to stack up!

    I think Daphne just realized that, Sarah. Look! She performed Synthesis to restore 20 HP! It might have been more had it been sunnier out, but she'll take what she can get!

    At the very least, it provided a nice buffer for Koops's Brick Break--instead of being on the verge of fainting, Daphne still has plenty of energy left to fight!

    This bout could go on for ages! What will happen next? Stay tuned, Unova--this battle continues after these messages from our sponsors!

    Crap, how did I forget about this?

    I can't ref right now, but the results will come soon, I promise. If you guys want to find a subref, I understand completely. If not, it shouldn't be too much longer (school and what not have been sapping away a lot of my time recently).
