Arena (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Arena (open) Arena (close) Arena: The Forlorn Graveyard Restrictions: No external water source. People have stopped burying people in this abandoned graveyard for centuries, but there is still an eerie aura all over the place. The grass looks more grey than green (despite this not affecting Grass-type moves at all), and most Pokemon and people avoid the place instinctively. Some trainers however still visit this place to strengthen the link with their Pokemon, especially Ghost-type ones. The odd aura of this graveyard has several effects in battle: Focus Blast has 100% accuracy, and the base power of Aura Sphere and Hidden Power is raised by (2). It is very easy to focus oneself's soul in this place. Will-O-Wisp and Inferno have 100% accuracy. There are always wisps floating around to provide decent enough fodder for these wicked spells Draining attacking moves have their base energy cost reduced by (2). Life energies are easier to drain and consume in this place. Leader Zarator: Challenger Its_A_Random All was quiet in the long-neglected cemetery. As fog rolled in waves across moss-covered tombstones, a sillouette appeared in the distance. Crunch! Crunch! The silence was broken by the sound of a person's footsteps on the gravel driveway as he approached the graveyard, oblivious to the monsters that lay within. As the figure entered the hallowed ground, it was revealed to be Its_A_Random, the formidable leader of the nearbye ground type gym. "Zarator!" IAR called into the endless fog. "Show yourself! I challenge you!" There was silence, but then, a voice: "I have been here the whole time, waiting for you, challenger. The spirits told me you would come." Suddenly, IAR saw movement upon a crypt- that shape he saw up top wasn't a statue... It moved! As IAR stared, Zarator leaped from his perch and landed noiselessly on the soft ground of the cemetery. The warrior of the dead faced the warrior of the earth and said, "And yes, I accept your challenge!" Order of Ops: Zarator sends out his first Pokemon and equips an item. IAR sends out his first Pokemon, equips an item, and orders. Zarator orders. I ref. May the best trainer win!
