Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to another fiery battle here in CAP ASB!
Today's match takes place between Galladiator in DFrog, way out in the middle of Gump Forest!
It was quite a long trek out, let's hope this battle was worth it!

Before we begin, let's take a moment to go over the rules:
Trying out a prospective Gym arena.

Open Challenge

1v1 LC Singles
2 Subs

All Abilities

Field Type: Grass
Complexity: Moderate
Format: Singles/Doubles/Triples

A forest in northwestern Unova, far from most forms of civilization. As such, it is an extremely beautiful expanse of foliage and wildlife. In the middle of the forest is a clearing, which is a perfect locale for intense Pokemon battles.

Because of the more-than-substantial supply of vegetation, Grass-types will be able to use their Grass-type moves for three (3) less Energy, and said moves will have their Base Attack Power raised by three (3) (non-Grass-types will pay the full Energy cost and deal normal damage, due to not being fully in tune with the forest surroundings). This forest is also a very calming place; it is essentially a sanctuary for Grass-type Pokemon. Those Pokemon that are at least part Grass will receive and be under the effect of the abilities Leaf Guard and Chlorophyll, which will stack with their existing abilities (unless they already have Leaf Guard and/or Chlorophyll, in which case the ability will simply activate).

Weather cannot breach the thick canopy of the forest, and the close proximity of the canopy to the ground means that the move Fly will not be as effective. In addition, at the end of each round, a soothing breeze may blow through the area, having the same effect as the move Sweet Scent; the exception being that Grass-types, having become accustomed to the ways of the forest, are not affected by it.

Lastly, Fire-types must be extremely cautious to avoid setting the forest on fire (the forest is protected by a mysterious aura that prevents widespread forest fires, but the Pokemon don't know that), and as a result their Fire attacks suffer from a -3 BAP loss. As for Pokemon who are not of the Fire-type but are capable of using fire-type moves, this translates into a -2 BAP drop for those moves. For non-damaging moves, this instead means that such moves suffer from a reverse Prankster (i.e. they automatically have a priority of -1). Note that this does not apply to the Gym Leader's Pokemon, as they are used to the forest.

This peaceful haven for plants and Pokemon alike sits quietly, as if waiting for a decent battle. Show no mercy, and you may be victorious.

Summary:
-Grass-type moves have BAP raised by 3 and Energy cost reduced by 3 when used by Grass-types
-Leaf Guard and Chlorophyll permanently in effect for all Grass-type Pokemon; cannot be altered by Gastro Acid, Skill Swap, etc.
- -3 BP on Fly due to lack of upward mobility
-Weather will have no effect due to closeness of trees
-Soothing scents will occasionally (30% at end of round) blow through the area, lowering non-Grass Pokemon's evasion 1 stage (or dissolving one clone of Double Team)
-Fire-type moves suffer a -2 BAP drop (-3 BAP if used by a Fire-type Pokemon, -1 priority if non-damaging; does not apply to the Gym Leader's Pokemon)
With that taken care of, let's go ahead and meet the teams:

Team Galladiator:

Necturine [Haley] (F)
Nature: Quiet (+SpA, -Spe, -10% evasion)

Type:
Grass: Grass STAB; Immunity to Leech Seed and Worry Seed. 50% reduction in status effect chance of oncoming “powder” attacks. More mobile in areas with strong natural light sources. Superior senses in tall grass and forest areas. Able to use Wrap and Bind without losing focus.
Ghost: Ghost STAB; brief intangibility that nullifies Normal and Fighting-type attacks. Can move through walls for a brief period of time but must remain in motion. Superior senses in low light and inside dark buildings. Have no vision reduction in hazes.

Abilities:
Anticipation: This Pokemon is better at sensing dangerous attacks, and reduced the Base Attack Power from super-effective attacks, Selfdestruct, and Explosion by two (2).
Telepathy (DW): This Pokemon has a mental link with its allies in multiple battles, allowing it to avoid taking damage from attacks that affect the whole field like Earthquake and Surf.

Stats:
HP: 90

Team DFrog:

Sneasel (M) Gambit
Nature: Adamant
Type: Dark/Ice

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.

Ice STAB; immune to freezing and Sheer Cold, no vision loss or damage in Hail or snowstorm conditions, perfectly accurate and 30% Protect breaking Blizzard in Hail. Superior senses and mobility in frozen caves and other frigid arenas.

Abilities:
Inner Focus (Innate): When an opponent attempts to flinch this Pokemon, it stands firm and continues its attack. If it has another ability that would be activated by flinching, that ability activates.

Keen Eye (Innate): This Pokemon has extremely good vision and cannot have its accuracy lowered by an opponent through any means (including accuracy lowering attacks, Smogs, Hazes, Fog, etc.). Its attacks are still affected by an opponent’s evasion and the Pokemon's own accuracy.

Pickpocket (Innate/DW): This Pokemon has a natural habit of collecting items. Whenever a hold item (its own or an opponents) is used or knocked onto the ground with a move like Knock Off, this Pokemon will immediately pick up that item without using an action. It can also grab dropped or naturally occuring hold items in arenas.

Yikes, looks like DFrog has a clear advantage.
Can Galladiator overcome this Ice/Dark menace?
Before we can find out, let's go over the order of operations:

-Galladiator sends out and equips training items
-DFrog sends out, equips, and orders.
-Galladiator counter-orders.
-I dispense reffage
-And we rinse and repeat until we have a winner!

Without further ado, let's get this battle rolling! Good luck to both of you!
