Completed GemoftheDay vs Unoriginal Name at the Unown Alphabet Soup...

#1

So... hey guys, I'm IceSpade and I know that you know that I'm the "Cool" trainer. So, I'll be reffing this 2v2 Doubles match between GemoftheDay against Unoriginal Name... Okay, here are the rules:

2v2 doubles
training items
2 subs
unlimited chills & recoveries
One ability
And here's the arena:

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.


...And here is GemoftheDay and his/her 'mons...

GemOftheDay said:



Ralts (Castette) (F)
Nature: Mild (+1 SpA, -1 Def)
Type: 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.

Abilities:
Ability 1: Synchronize - Pokemon with this ability mentally link their condition to an opposing Pokemon and pass on any status inflicted on them to their foe. Due to their body structure, Poison-types cannot be poisoned and Fire-types cannot be burned in this manner.
Ability 2: Trace - This Pokemon can copy an ability of the opponent and replace Trace for six (6) actions. Wonder Guard cannot be Traced.
Ability 3: Telepathy (DW) - This Pokemon has a mental link with its allies in multiple battles, which allows it to avoid taking damage from allied attacks that damage each foe or the entire field like Blizzard and Earthquake. They are still affected by an opponents spread damage attacks.

Zorua (Voile) (M)
Nature: Jolly (+15% Speed, +13% Accuracy, -1 SpA)
Type: 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.

Abilities:
Ability 1: Illusion - Whenever you send this Pokemon out, it can feign the appearance of another member on your squad. If this Pokemon is damaged by a direct attack, the Illusion will cease at the end of the round. Direct damage is any attack that does damage to the Pokemon's HP. Attacks that are evaded, blocked via Protect, or damage a Substitute are not considered direct damage. It will retain the typing and moveset of the Pokemon with Illusion. [Usage Note: PM the ref if you are sending out a Zorua or Zoroark with the info on Zorua/Zoroark and one of your squad members in a Switch=KO battle. You must use that squad member later in the battle though.]

Let's go, castette and voile! Castette, make sure that you synchronize your attacks with voile as he sets up those illusions!

Castette: synchronize, no items
Voile: illusion, no items
 
#3
Go, Emporer Iceburgh and Vanilla DEATH!
Now, I'm worried about that Ralts. It seems like it's just waiting to Disable and Will-o-Wisp us. Let's prevent that.

Ability Torrent, item Amulet Coin.
Aqua Ring ~ Surf ~ Blizzard

Ability Ice Body, no item.
Taunt (Ralts) ~ Hail ~ Blizzard
IF Zorua uses Taunt on you THEN change all remaining actions to Ice Beam (Ralts).

Surf and Blizzard target all foes, of course.
 
#4
Seems like they are onto us. our best bet is to get rid of that ice cream as fast poSsible. We can abuse these unknown here and destroy that setup!

Castette: disable icebeam (ice cream)> will o wisp (ice cream)> unknown h (heat wave)

Voile: Taunt (ice cream) > sucker punch (penguin) > unknown s ( sunny day)

these unknown are sure helpful. let's keep up the offensive!

Castette: unknown "L" (leetch seed)(piplup) > calm mind > psyshock (vanilla death)
Voile: Hone claws > unknown "R" (rock wrecker+Fury swipes)(vanilla death) > cooldown


if cannot use a certain move, change that move to Castette: psyshock (if psyshock disabled then shadow ball) (vanilla death) or Voile: sucker punch (if sucker punch disabled then pursuit) (vanilla death)
if unknown is already used, change action to Castette: psyshock (if psyshock disabled then shadow ball) (vanilla death) or Voile: sucker punch (if sucker punch disabled then pursuit) (vanilla death)
 
#8
Just noticed IceSpade changed his avatar... Got to get around to doing that myself some day.
Dang... A Disable Ice Beam was exactly what I was hoping you'd overlook. Oh, well. Not as bad as I thought it'd be.

(Anyone else think Piplup's MD2 sprite is kind of derpy?)
Unown V: V-Create (Ralts) ~ Hydro Pump (Ralts) ~ Surf+ Surf Combo (Ralts)

(So cute!)
Ice Beam (Ralts) ~ Blizzard (Ralts) ~ Blizzard (Ralts)

Both: If Ralts is KOed, redirect all actions to Zorua.

Go full-force on Ralts! Of course, that Sunny Day will be dangerous, so let's change that and make Blizzard hit while we're at it.
 
#9
@GOTD: I factored the sun for Heat Wave...
IceSpade said:
(10+3+4.5-3)*0.67 = 9.715 damage
...although I did forget about Taunt. Fixed.
Anyway, Unoriginal Name is allowed to reorder. :P

EDIT: So I was informed that spread moves do less damage in Doubles. Minor changes to the Pokemons' HP was done.

IF Megahorn KOs Ralts, redirect Ice Beam to Zorua.
 
#14
zorua's hone claws boosts attack. the one thing you forgot

good fight Castette. you did well. however, I have a trick up my sleeve.

Castette: unknown p (pain split) (piplup) > disable (surf) (piplup) > magical leaf (piplup)
Voile: fury swipes +unknown M (metal claw) (vanilla death) > sucker punch (vanilla death) > sucker punch (vanilla death)


IF vanilla death faints, redirect actions to piplup.

EDIT: i just realized that the combo gets -2 priority >_< oh well. no reordering.

Disregard my message UN, apparently both will survive the Hydro Pump, so the result doesn't matter.
