    Espeon65 needs to specify Switch and Items. Then send out lead.
    EndQuote sends out lead and orders.
    Espeon65 orders.

    Umm how about
    Switch= OK
    Items= Training

    But actually, since Endquote is the Match Seeker in this situation, he sends out first.

    Oh my, what a quagsire. Okay, I guess here's what I can do:

    The main reasoning behind this is that, IMO, those who order second usually has the advantage (after all, you can only sub for that many conditions), hence the player who orders second in the first round has a better dealt hand. So, if Endquote intends to counter these Clauses to get the upper hand, Espeon65 can regain the balance by ordering second. Any forum moderator who disagrees with me can simply edit this post, override my decisions, and then let the battle commence wherever possible. I'm sorry about this hitch, truly, I am.

    Assuming All Abilities, just because it's kinda standard.

    Right, I'll send out first, no worries.
    Anghammarad the Golett is up first, holding an Amulet Coin!

    Going with the obvious choice...

    Go Pauly @Amulet Coin!

    Unown T (Tail Glow)~Ice Beam~Surf

    IF he uses Focus Punch A1 AND NOT A2, THEN use Ice Beam and push back. (So Ice Beam~Tail Glow~Ice Beam)

    IF he uses Focus A1 AND A2, THEN change actions to Bide~Hold~Release.

    ("Hmm, Unowns hardly taste good. C is chicken-cabbage, S is salmon-steak, T had been trout-truffle... Well, maybe T isn't that bad.") Yeah, but we're not here to eat today, Nargacuga. Welcome to the Cauldron of Bubbling Pokemon, folks, where two teams of wittle cusps are facing off! Espeon leads with a six-five Pauly-Piplup ("Not six-feet-five-inches, of course.") while Endquote sends out his Klutz Anghammarad-Golett onto the field.

    Pauly-Piplup, smirking, starting to Glow like an Unown disco Taillight, focusing his mind on freezing and drowning Anghammarad-Golett. However, the walking construct proves to be an appreciative audience, applauding Pauly-Piplup into a spectacularly... failing Encore. Taking the opportunity, Anghammarad-Golett proceeds to litter the cauldron platform with Stealthy Pebbly Ninja Rocks before launching a right hook of ThunderPunch at Pauly-Piplup, landing the first blow!! Seems Endquote did some really maddening stuff to Espeon65, let's hope Pauly-Piplup can unleash his tide of rage and give our spectator an exciting match!

    You've done great, Anghammarad! Take a break for a moment.

    I'd like to switch to Valoo, my Dratini, holding an EXP Share.
    Counter switch, Espeon?

    Unown C for Camouflage (Into the Water-type, as this is soup) ~ Thunderbolt ~
    Dragon Pulse
    IF Unown M for Mirror Coat is used successfully a2 or a3 THEN Dragon Tail that action and push back.
    IF Piplup has Double Team clones up on your action on a2 or a3 THEN Icy Wind that action and push back.

    Whoops, Zhengtann, Thunderpunch is boosted by Iron Fist, meaning it does 3 more damage.
    Hate to nitpick, but WOO THREE DAMAGE.

    I've edited the previous post to include your items, so that I won't mess up the due rewards. Also, a -Speed nature results in flat +10% accuracy to all opponents' attacks against you, last I remembered, so Hydro Pump + Ice Beam combo with 90% accuracy hits Dratini. Just correct me if I'm wrong.

    And Valoo-Dratini comes out on Endquote's command, eager to capitalize on his teammate's strategy. He started out by submerging into the stew of Unowns ("Hey, I saw you eating one.") for Camouflage, but Pauly-Piplup simply grabs another Unown and Switches on the couldron's Critical Voltage lever! Shocked, Valoo-Dratini pays back in kind by hurling a Thunderbolt at Pauly-Piplup, who apparently ran out of tricks and decided to Surf around the cauldron instead, swamping everyone with broth! ("Did them humans just seemed tastier with dripping soup and hanging Unowns...?")

    And right before going out, Pauly-Piplup decides to drop every last crit of what he got at Valoo-Dratini by blasting Frigid Pump ("Now that sounds better than Hydro Beam, sorry Pink-Kitty-with-Numbers.") right after eating a Pulse that tastes like Dragon in the face! Wait a minute... Did we just went food theme at Unown Soup? Ah, whatever. Now that Espeon65 has mandated a Switch phase, anticipation arises at who will be the next on the grounds!

    Sending out Beldum. Counterswitch?

    EDIT: I have to cooldown? Imma check this out...

    I sorta consider this being forced out by an attack. Can a more senior asb member give us a ruling? Can someone ask on #capasb? (I can't, on my kindle.) Not changing orders or reordering til we get this sorted out.

    Crap. I was counting on switching out. Okay, well I'll do my best with the situation at hand.

    Cooldown~Unown Z (Zap Cannon)~Double Team (4 clones)

    If Unwon Z is used before you can use it, use Unown F (Frenzy Plant) instead.

    Damnit I always have to recalculate just about everything. Guys, if you can, look through my crunches before ordering - right now I have a record of about 90% chance getting screwed up in at least one nitpick every round I reffed.

    EDIT : Done, EndQuote. Thanks for reminding me.

    And we're seeing a lot of satisfaction from the bloodthirsty crowd this round, as Valoo-Dratini kicks off with a bolt of lightning ("Because Thunder is a sound, not a Lux.") at Pauly-Piplup, paralyzing his already exhausted, slicking and shaking body, only to abuse the extra free action by grabbing a Giga-sized Unown siphon that Drains of Pauly-Piplup's vitality! Playing a terribly wrathful risk, Pauly responds with a Cannon shot that Zaps Valoo-Dratini, leaving his opponent struck paralyzed. But, being stunned by an Unown did not manage to faze Valoo-Dratini, who proceeds to knock Pauly-Piplup out with a back-tail hurl of a second Thunderbolt! Congratulations to Endquote for drawing the first line, as Espeon is now wiser in planning a powerful counterattack!

    Oops, sorry Espeon for being too brief. What I meant was that since Endquote will be ordering first this coming round, he can decide whether or not to switch out his Dratini. Now that you've sent in your Beldum, you can counterswitch again, should Endquote chose to do so.

    Yes, switching to Shadow.

    Toxic~Unown H (Hex)~Dark Pulse

    If he uses a protective/evasive move A1, use Toxic again A2 and don't push back. (So no Hex, Unown H is still unused)

    Espeon65, you did not specify the item Shadow-Ghastly will be holding, so I'm assuming he's holding none. Sorry about that. And I'm currently not allowing Stealth Rock damage on Robert-Beldum unless I'm overruled. So keep these things in mind before you order.

    EDIT : Forgot to put STAB in for Shadow Punch on Golett. Fixed that.

    Holy- there's a lot of Pokeball tossing around here for 2 trainers, but finally we see Shadow-Gastly taking the field against Anghammarad-Golett. Wasting no time, the sadistic shade-poison-cloud seeps a part of his body into the golem, somehow intoxicating the poltergeist possessing the construct! Anghammarad-Golett picks up an Unown-H ("Great, there goes my Hunter-Head flavour.") but drops and accidentally stamps on it, failing to do anything with it ("Sigh - klutzy move, waste of a good tasty snack.")

    Was that... Yes folks, we're seeing Shadow-Gastly trying to reassemble the crumbles of Unown-H, but before he could, Anghammarad-Golett tracks him down and lands a Shadow Jab on the black-purple blob. Panicking, Shadow-Gastly flies away, attempting to flinch with a Dark Pulse that blinds Anghammarad-Golett, yet it doesn't stop the trailing Shadow-Fist to Punch Gastly as he dodges to o avail... ("Put up a better fight, pink-telepathic-feline! Give that turtlish-robot hell for misusing Unown-H!")
