Hey, guys! We're in the new and improved Armor Testing Facility, which is just like the ASB arena but way better 'cause there aren't any of those blasted fans. So, let's go over the rules and the arena set up! 2v2 NFE Doubles No Items 0 Recovers/ 5 Chills All Abilities No Switching 1 Day DQ 1 Substitution Armor Testing Facility V2 (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Armor Testing Facility V2 (open) Armor Testing Facility V2 (close) After cleaning up the mess from the disasterious battle between fellow scientist, King Serperior, and his foe, Glacier Knight, King Serperior scrapped all the armors and ordered his fellow scientists to go back to the drawing board. After two years of constant research, King Serperior and his fellow scientists came up with newer and better armors...... Before we get to the armors, the arena is an exact replica of the ASB Arena. 1). Aero Armor - An oldie, but a goodie. This jet-powered armor adds an extra flying-typing to the wearer. If the wearer is already of the flying type, then it gains 2X STAB on all of its flying moves and its Flying weaknesses are doubled. It also gains the following moves as long as it wears the armor: Aerial Ace and Sonicboom. 2). Pyro Armor - This specially designed armor is made from a synthetic material that automatically catches itself on fire with no harm to the wearer. The wearer gans the ability, Flame Body, while wearing this armor. All contact moves used by the wearer have a 20% chance to burn the foe. The wearer gains use of the move, Flame Charge. 3). Berry Basket Armor - This armor has many slots that hold berries for easy access to. The berries that this armor holds are: 2X Oran Berries, 1X Lum Berries, 2X Leppa berries, and 1X Enigma Berry. The use of berries require 5 energy and are each one-time use. The use of a berry requires one action. The wearer of this armor gains the move, Natural Gift. When using Natural Gift, keep in mind that once a berry is used, it cannot be replaced. 4). Power Armor - The wearer gains use of an armor that focuses its power into the upper torso and arms of the user. Physical attacks used against the wearer have their final damage decreased by 1. The wearer of the armor gains the moves, Strength and Mach Punch. If the wearer has no arms, it learns Thrash instead of Mach Punch. 5). Heavyweight Armor - After countless retesting and experimentation, this failed and overpowered armor was completely redesigned. The wearer's weight class becomes 12. The wearer cannot use moves that cannot be used in Gravity. The Defense and Sp.Defense of the wearer are increased by 2. The wearer learns the moves, Magnitude and Iron Defense. 6). Reversal Armor - This question-mark covered armor gives the ability, Contrary, to the wearer. It also reverses the type weaknesses and resistenses of the wearer. If the wearer is a fire/bug type, its 4X rock weakness becomes a 4X rock resist. Any immunties that the wearer has are kept. The wearer gains the ability to use Reversal and Mirror Coat. Alright, I see our fighters, King Serperior and Complications approaching, so let's see what pokemon they have and what armour they all grabbed!

Gains an extra guaranteed attack on multi-hit moves. Flying: Flying STAB; immunity to Ground attacks except under the effects of Smack Down and Gravity, even for ground-based flying Pokemon.

Enhanced aerial mobility. Superior senses in open air arenas. Swarm: (Inate)When this Pokemon’s HP is lower than 33% (flat), the Base Attack Power of any Bug-typed attack is increased by 2. (eg Silver Wind goes from 6 to 8, X-Scissor from 8 to 10). Technician: (Inate) This Pokemon is more skilled at performing weaker moves, causing any of their attacks that normally have 6 or less Base Attack Power to have their Base Attack Power multiplied by 1.5. (e.g. Aerial Ace goes from 6 to 9, Mach Punch goes from 4 to 6, etc.) The Energy Cost for a one-hit or two-hit attack is increased by one (1). Each hit in a multi-hit move is boosted by one (1) Base Attack Power, and the Energy Cost for multi-hit attacks is increased by two (2). Because Technician is a multiplier on single hit moves, its effect is applied to Base Attack Power before any additive effects. Steadfast(DW-Locked): (Inate)If this Pokemon is flinched, it becomes aware of the speed difference and increases Speed by one (1) stage to make up the difference. This Speed boost is maintained at the end of each round.
