Factory Round Two: IAR vs. Gerard

#1


Welcome to both the battlers and spectators of this tournament match- but this isn't just any early round tournament battle- this is on ASB Arena's Mainstage! The best matchup of the round, I cannot express how honored and excited I am to be a facilitator of this epic! Both players are some of the titans of battle- I present to you the Battle Factory Matchup of Round 2- It's A Random vs. Gerard!

Before we hop on in let's take a few seconds to review the standard rules of the matchup-

Switch = OK
Items: ON
Abilities: ONE
Arena: ASB Tournament Arena
Unlimited Chills/Recoveries
Two substitutions
Two day DQ on actions, three day DQ on ref.

On your left, one of the most not if not the most known face of ASB- It's a Random! He got here by defeated one of the most meticulous fighters: Engineer Pikachu! Easily one of the strongest battlers out there, he has quite a few tournament and gym league accolades to his name:
  • Ground Gym Leader
  • Semifinalist in the Team Tournament
  • 3 Gym Badges- Tied for the Most

And his team! One of his big threats is Camerupt- It's massive bulk will allow it to weather all sorts of fighting, and he will feel right at home with a ground type! Skarmory will provide valuable support to his team, and Ampharos rounds off the team as an offensive threat on the special side, sporting a wide variety of dangerous attacks.

And our your right... GERARD! Specializing in Psychic types, he is known for strong fighting skills. In fact he is one of two candidates to have beaten IAR on his home turf- he successfully challenged the Ground Gym. He advanced to the second round by defeating UllarWarlord While his tournament and gym league accolades are slightly surpassed by IAR, they still compose one of ASB's strongest resumes:

  • Psychic Type Gym Leader- Undefeated as Leader!
  • Two Badges- Defeated IAR

And now for his team! Hypno is the Pokemon to keep an eye on- Gerard is very familiar with Psychics! Swalot and Mandibuzz however, are not to be underestimated- both have the potential to both dish out and take some serious damage!


Harley Hypno (F)

Nature: Brave
+1 Attack, -15% Speed, -10% Evasion

Type: Psychic
Psychic: Psychic STAB; less susceptible to blinding, more susceptible to sound-based assaults as far as locking on with Psychic attacks, can lift and throw opponents with Psychic regardless of Special Attack Rank. Psychic-type attacks are not godlike and cannot be used as a catchall for Disabling, Binding, and redirecting opposing attacks.

Ability: Forewarn
Forewarn (Innate):
This Pokemon is more adept than usual at sensing and reacting to the opponent's attacks. As a result, it gets a bonus move substitution that must have a condition in the format "If Pokemon X uses move Y", with no further qualifiers or additional clauses allowed. This bonus substitution may go anywhere in the list of substitutions the pokemon makes, but it must be indicated with "Bonus" or "Bonus Sub" or something similar in front of the bonus substitution.

AND NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT! Two fearsome fighters stand at either end of the arena- clutching their pokeballs confidently! But unfortunately, only one can move on, in this matchup of superstars! Yes that's right- this fight will go down and history!

Now, let's see who will kick things off- IAR will send out first on heads, while Gerard will on tails-

HEADS=1-5000, TAILS=5001-10000 (5026)=TAILS



You know it will close when the coin flip is close- Gerard is to send out!

Please add items the trainer can bring to the OP.

"Psyquic-Types holding Magnets for one move is one thing. Being able to use that to your advantage is another. Skarmory @ Quick Claw, start this fight."

Taunt > Stealth Rock > Roost
IF (Protective/Evasive Move) is used successfully when you are to use Taunt, THEN use Spikes that action, pushing actions back.
IF Magic Coat is issued when you are to use Taunt, THEN use X-Scissor that action, pushing actions back.

Just a heads up, the movespam should have applied to the hidden power side of the combination, resulting in the combination costing (13+10)×1.5=34.5 Energy. Likewise, note that Swalot will be on cooldown A1 & Sluggish A2.

"Splendid job. Tormeldon, take the reins on this foe! This Watmel Berry should come in handy when we have an opponent on the ropes! We may have to give our opponent a free action next round, but that is nothing when we have an advantage to gain!"

Eruption (Berry) > Earth Power > Earthquake + Earthquake combo
IF Explosion is issued A3, THEN use Protect A3.

Oh well, this is awkward but the orders that I gave you were illegal, but in order to make this quick just change Poison Gas into Body Slam, sending Kirkegard with BlackGlasses afterward

let's just get this over with....


BlackGlasses


Kirkegard: Foul Play ~ Dark Pulse ~ Foul Play
* If Camerupt uses Will-o-Wisp then use Substitute (20) and push actions
