    AND SOS SHALL BE THE ARBITER!

    AKA Leethoof's Alphabet Soup:
    Field Type = Neutral
    Complexity = Moderate
    Format = Multiples!!!
    No Restrictions

    The battlers are on a solid platform in the middle of a giant bowl filled with delicious broth. No move restrictions at all, because you can safely go seismetoad on the platform and there is plenty of broth to swampert your enemies with. In the soup, there is one of each letter unown floating in around aimlessly. They are all close enough to pick up, and a battler may use one action each round (they can't just use three unowns) to use any move that begins with that letter. Once an unown is used, it cannot be used again.

    Team Orcinus Duo:
    Show Hide
    [​IMG]
    Scraggy(*) Pants (M)
    Nature: Adamant
    Type: Dark/Fighting
    Dark: Dark STAB; Immunity to all telepathic and telekinetic attacks, better performance in all darkened and especially twilight conditions. Can use any Dark-type attack regardless of Attraction.
    Fighting: Fighting STAB; ignore weight restrictions of throwing/grappling moves. Superior reaction time in close quarters.

    Abilities:

    Shed Skin:
    Type: Innate
    This Pokemon regularly sheds its skin and any impurities contained in its body. If afflicted with a status condition, this Pokemon has a 33% chance of removing all status conditions at the end of a round.
    Moxie:
    Type: Innate
    This Pokemon gets psyched after it earns a KO on an opposing Pokemon, increasing its attack by one (1) stage. This boost is maintained at the end of each round.
    Intimidate (DW):
    Type: Can be Activated, locked
    When this Pokemon initially goes out into the battlefield, it generates an intimidating roar or war cry that shakes all opponents on the battlefield, reducing their Attack stage by one (1). The attack drop is maintained at the end of each round. If an opponent switches in a new Pokemon, Intimidate can be activated again as an Action, and will affect all opponents.

    Erm. Am I supposed to go first? :P

    Righto pants, we definitely have an advantage here with stats and moveset. Even with shed skin, I don't like status at all, so start off with Unown M for Magic Coat to ward off annoying stuff, followed up by a thunderpawnch and taunt. However, we don't want a magic coat steal like last time to screw us up, so if unown M is unavailable, punish them with a big fat unown F for Fusion Bolt and replace taunt with yet another thunderpunch! Aim dead on for the body.

    Unown M Magic Coat~Thunderpunch~Taunt
    If Unown M is unavailable A1, replace with Unown F Fusion Bolt~Thunderpunch~Thunderpunch

    I believe that as Engineer picked the arena, yes you do. But you also need to choose your ability.

    Another match in Leethoof's bowl of Alphabet Soup. Surely this soup is out of date by now! But either way, we have veteran player Engineer Pikachu, with fresh face on his team, Kurage the Tentacool. He's up against a new player to ASB, Orcinus Duo and his creatively-named Scraggy, Pants. Can he defeat this squishy jellyfish? Let's rock.

    Pants starts by grabbing the first Unown of the match, Unown M! Suddenly he coats himself in a sheen, ready to reflect status! Too bad Kurage uses this time to create a doll of himself as a decoy. Pants promptly PAWNCHES it as the real Kurage summons rings of water around his body, which pulsate to restore his health.

    Okay, start off with a Bind so Pants won't be able to punch you with as much ease! Then, follow up with a Confuse Ray and Unown L: Leech Seed. If Unown L is used up by the time it's your turn, use an Unown A: Aeroblast instead.

    Wow. Screw me for thinking magic coat lasted more than one move.

    I change my mind. Confusehax is too stupid. Pants, go underground with dig on a1. Bind will hit you because youre slower but that doesnt matter, you can still dig with a couple strings attached. XD Hit with dig to break the sub after confuse ray misses. And then...B FOR BOLT STRIKE!! Hit the underside of tentacool where he's sensitive...it might just break the bind.

    Evasive digging~Hit with dig~Unown B for Bolt Strike, aim for tentacool's b--er, underside.

    Hmm. I don't normally allow edits except within the first five minutes for fairness' sake. But I never saw the original actions because I was sleeping... So I'm not exactly sure what to do here. If Engineer says he's ok with the edited actions, I guess we can roll, otherwise, please change your actions back to how they were, Orcinus Duo.

    Yeah, I'm fine with the edited actions. Especially since I don't see how you can dig underground while you're being wrapped by tentacles. Also, Bolt Strike says "slams into the foe," which is also quite difficult to do if you're already wrapped by the foe...

    Whoops. Forgot about this.
    V for volt switch, thunderpunch, thunderpunch. If v is unavailable, switch to e for EQ.

    Both Pokémon try to grab an Unown as this round begins, with Kurage summoning Unown P to form a green barrier around him, protecting him from Pants using Unown V for Volt Switch. What a shame, that would've freed him from all that secondary status... And there's a truckload of it, goddamn. But at least he's no longer confused, or bound, and Kurage's rings of water evaporate. But he's back on the attack now, wrapping Pants in his tentacles again, but he's ready this time, and smacks him with a fist of lightning, ka-wham. And he manages to do it again, as Kurage stings him with poisonous needles from his tentacles. Not only do the stings score a critical hit, they poison Pants, and his She Skin fails to take effect this round...

    Let's start out with Unown S: Sky Attack, then a Scald followed by Confuse Ray. If Unown S is already used when it's your turn, use Unown I: Ingrain instead.

    Thanks for reffing!

    I'm glad that my first battle in the broth was a fun one, mostly due to having a great opponent.
