    Bishop the CLAYDOL (open)
    [​IMG]
    Claydol [Bishop] (U)
    Nature: Relaxed (+1 Def; Divides Base Speed by 1.15, Evasion -10.)

    Ground: Ground STAB; Immune to all electrical attacks, can Dig through almost any substance, Evasive Digging reduced from 3 per action Energy Cost to 2 per action, superior senses in darkened cave surroundings.
    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:

    Levitate: (Trait) This Pokemon naturally floats above the earth when released or easily takes flight, evading the Ground moves Bulldoze, Earthquake, Fissure, and Magnitude. Earth Power will have three (3) less Base Attack Power. Dig and Dive can strike a Levitating Pokemon if their user is over Size Class 4, has Levitate, is 3.5m or larger, or is a flying type. Otherwise Dig and Dive will miss. Ground moves can still hit. Levitate Pokemon will retain the Levitate trait when they use Skill Swap on an enemy, and will steal the opponent's ability (the user can specify if they want a foe or ally to gain Levitate from a Skill Swap.) If a Pokemon with Levitate uses Role Play, they will copy the opponent's abilities and retain Levitate.

    Random entered the ASB Arena, knowing it was D-Day. It had been a long time since he last entered, that last one being an ASB Tournament Match against Flamestrike, which he lost...Shortly after he went to his box, he noticed a familiar face enter the arena: It happened to be the same opponent who he met a long time ago at Crimson Plateau. Ahh, sweet memories...Moving on, Random greeted his opponent & shook hands with the ref. Either way this match goes, it was going to be a close one...

    "Good luck DK, may the best user win. Let's open this battle hard & fast with Capers & Utilitand! May your massive movepools give us the early advantage, whoever our opponent brings in!"

    Our foe seems to want to cut to the quick. But as we all know, slow and steady wins the race. I send out AquaVelva and Bishop.

    [​IMG] | [​IMG]

    A little ice is twice as nice.

    Bishop, begin with a Smack Down aimed at Capers, then follow up with an Earth Power aimed at Utilitand, and finish with a Psychic aimed at Utilitand.
    IF Gliscor Taunts Aquavelva action 1, use Smack Down on Gliscor on your first action instead, and resume attacks as normal. If Fidgit Digs on action 2 or 3, blast it with Earthquake while its underground.

    Aquavelva, begin the match by summoning Hail, then launch Blizzard at your foes, and finish with Muddy Water.
    IF Fidgit Taunts you action 1, blast your foes with Blizzard, then follow up with Muddy Water followed by Earthquake.

    Bishop: Smack Down (Capers) ~ Earth Power (Utilitand) ~ Psychic (Utilitand)
    IF Gliscor Taunts Aquavelva action 1, Telekinesis (Capers).
    If Fidgit uses Dig on action 2 or 3, use Earthquake.

    Aquavelva: Hail ~ Blizzard ~ Muddy Water
    IF Fidgit Taunts you action 1, use Blizzard ~ Muddy Water ~ Earthquake


    Good luck Its_A_Random.

    What will you do when the very ground is your enemy?

    Random sees the two opponents enter the arena, & lets off a slight grin, almost as if to say that this is what he wanted...

    "Alright, Capers, Utilitand, let's do this! Capers, open this with a nasty Dig on Aquavelva, while Utilitand sets up a protective wall. Next, I want Utilitand to spur on Aquavelva to keep putting up that hailstorm while Capers launches a nice Aerial attack! Last off, I want Capers to attack Bishop & bring Firmoise into the fray, while Utilitand, I want you to lock AquaVelva out of a couple of options, ready for the next round, even though it will probably not stop her from using Hail for another action!"

    Capers: Dig (AquaVelva) > Sky Attack (AquaVelva) > U-Turn (Bishop, Switch in Firmoise at the end of the round)

    Utilitand: Light Screen > Encore (AquaVelva) > Taunt (AquaVelva)

    --------------------

    Meeting in the ASB Tournament Arena, the two potential Ground-type Gym Leaders, Its_A_Random and Deck Knight, face off in a doubles match to determine who will stand in the way of every hopeful Champion aiming to brave the challenging ASB Gym League! In order to prove their respective might, both battlers release their powerful Ground-type monsters into battle! IAR releases Capers the Gliscor and Utilitand the Fidgit, to which Deck Knight responds with AquaVelva the Gastrodon and Bishop the Claydol! With the stage set, we let the battle begin!

    Utilitand makes the first move by setting up a Light Screen for its team! Capers then burrows underground, evading Bishop's Smack Down attempt, coming up for a Dig attack on AquaVelva as the Gastrodon whips up a violent Hailstorm that whips all the Pokemon on the field with jagged pellets of ice! Utilitand Encores AquaVelva, persuading her to continue summoning Hail, to no effect! Capers then starts glowing, while Bishop strikes Utilitand with an Earth Power! Capers then blasts forward with a Sky Attack that rocks AquaVelva for big damage as Utilitand further frustrates the swamp monster with a Taunt! Capers U-turns away with a strike on Bishop, who is still focused on Utilitand with a Psychic blast! Capers returns to IAR's side, and the trainer sends out Firmoise the Torterra! Tension!

    Random was satisfied with how the round had panned out & he had AquaVelva where he wanted it. Time to get rid of this thing once & for all, I guess...Provided Bishop doesn't say no; Two Subs dosen't cover everything...

    "Alright you two, excellent job! Utilitand, I want you to lock Bishop into attacking with Taunt, but if he tries to block it with Protect, then use Strength on AquaVelva, but don't chuck her, just strangle AquaVelva, holding him in place so AquaVelva cannot escape from Firmoise's attack through Dig or something similar, but if Bishop uses Psychic to say no, then Disable it. At this point, Firmoise, you're open to go for a Megaton Wood Hammer (Wood Hammer + Wood Hammer), but if AquaVelva goes for a Dig when Bishop isn't using Protect, then just use a regular Wood Hammer, pushing the Combo back if AquaVelva suspends Dig for one action, & using Seed Bomb next round if he doesn't. After all that, I just want Utilitand to Chill, then heal Firmoise, while Firmoise uses Seed Bomb A3. So much riding on one action..."

    Firmoise: Wood Hammer + Wood Hammer (AquaVelva, Combo) > N/A > Seed Bomb (Bishop)
    IF AquaVelva uses Dig A1 WHEN Bishop doesn't use Protect A1, AND AquaVelva suspends Dig by one Action, THEN Wood Hammer (AquaVelva) AND push the combo back by one action
    IF AquaVelva uses Dig A1 WHEN Bishop doesn't use Protect A1, AND AquaVelva does not suspend Dig, THEN Wood Hammer (AquaVelva) > Wood Hammer (AquaVelva)


    Utilitand: Taunt (Bishop) > Chill > Heal Pulse (Firmoise)
    IF Bishop uses Protect A1, THEN Strength (AquaVelva, hold it in place & prevent it from Digging), AND push actions back by one.
    IF Bishop uses Psychic A1, THEN Disable (Bishop's Psychic),
    AND push actions back by one.

    Alright, time to get this business done.

    Aquavelva, that combo is a mite strong, eh. Good thing we're prepared.

    Begin with Dig, and target Fidgit. While Firmoise is exposed, then blast both your foes with a massive Blizzard + Blizzard combo.

    Bishop, begin by using Protect and casting it over Aquavelva while she Digs, which should push Fidgit off of her (Fidgit grips with Strength, Claydol's Protect pushes it off, Gastrodon Digs as normal). Firmoise should still be preparing his combination. Then blast Firmoise with successive Ice Beams.

    Aquavelva: Dig (Fidgit) ~ Blizzard + Blizzard combo ~ cool down.

    Bishop: Protect (stretch over Aquavelva and break Fidgit out of Strength) ~ Ice Beam (Firmoise) ~ Ice Beam (Firmoise)

    Field Effects: Hail (3 Rounds)

    --------------------

    Back in the thick of it, Utilitand grapples AquaVelva with its mighty Strength, but Bishop comes to its partner's defense and slides a Protective shield between the Arena floor and the opposing Fidgit as AquaVelva slips underground, breaking its hold! Firmoise whips up a wild Wood Hammer but slams into the ground with no target! Moments later, AquaVelva resurfaces for a Dig attack, unaware of the horror it just avoided! With their earlier strategy shot, Utilitand goes back to what it does best and Taunts Bishop! Bishop is unconcerned with Utilitand's hijinks and fires off an Ice Beam at Firmoise that does moderate damage through IAR's Light Screen! AquaVelva then unleashes an incredible Super Blizzard that does loads of damage, causing Utilitand to chill out while Bishop follows up with another Ice Beam! Firmoise finishes off the rush of Action with a Seed Bomb on Bishop as the Hailsotrm grashes back and forth across this epic battle of the Ground-type greats!

    EDIT: Updated

    Alright Will Powers, time to show your foes what gave you your namesake.

    Time to use this offense to our advantage. Lets return our friend's favor and begin with an assault that will finish off a foe. Or perhaps both of our foes.

    Will Powers, begin Double-Edge + Ice Fang aimed at Firmoise to take it out of the match. Finish with a Sand Tomb aimed at Firmoise.
    IF Utilitand uses Taunt action 1, redirect Double-Edge + Ice Fang to Utilitand, and follow through with actions. This substitution supercedes all other subs.
    IF only Firmoise uses Protect on itself action 1, Earthquake + Earthquake combo ~ cool down ~ Sand Tomb (Firmoise)

    IF Firmoise is KO'd, redirect attacks to Utilitand.

    Bishop, we still have much work to do. Begin with Extrasensory on Firmoise to attempt a flinch, Then use Ice Beam on Utilitand and finish with Psychic on Utilitand.
    IF both Firmoise and Utilitand use Protect action 1, use Zen Headbutt on Utilitand, then launch Psychic at Utilitand, and Ice Beam at Firmoise.
    If only Firmoise uses Protect on itself action 1, Use Psychic on Fidgit, then follow up with Ice Beam followed by Rock Slide.

    If Utilitand is KO'd, redirect attacks to Firmoise.

    Will Powers:
    Double-Edge + Ice Fang (Firmoise) ~ cool down ~ Sand Tomb (Firmoise)
    IF Utilitand uses Reflect action 1, redirect Double-Edge + Ice Fang to Utilitand, and follow through with actions. This substitution supersedes all other subs.
    IF only Firmoise uses Protect on itself action 1: Earthquake + Earthquake ~ cool down ~ Sand Tomb (Firmoise)
    IF Firmoise is KO'd, redirect attacks to Utilitand.

    Bishop:
    Extrasensory (Firmoise) ~ Ice Beam (Utilitand) ~ Psychic (Utilitand)
    IF only Firmoise uses Protect on itself action 1: Psychic (Fidgit) action 1, then Ice Beam (Firmoise) ~ Rock Slide
    If Utilitand and Firmoise both use Protect action 1: Zen Headbutt (Fidgit) ~ Psychic (Fidgit) ~ Ice Beam (Firmoise)
    IF Utilitand is KO'd, rediect attacks to Firmoise.

    Random knew what he had to do, & he had to do it...

    "I'll have my Pokemon KOed on my terms, thank you..."

    Firmoise: Protect > Wood Hammer + Crunch (Bishop) > N/A
    IF the combo wouldn't work for whatever reason, THEN Seed Bomb + Seed Bomb (Bishop) A2
    IF first sub triggered, AND you don't have enough energy to perform the combo, THEN Wood Hammer + Return (Bishop) A2

    Utilitand: Substitute (15 HP) > Dig (Will Powers) > Earth Power (Will Powers)
    IF Bishop is still alive after A2, THEN Strength (Bishop) A3
    IF Both Utilitand AND Firmoise's first subs are triggered, but not Firmoise's second, THEN Me First (Bishop) A3

    Also, yes, Protect works against Earthquake. Lastly, I reckon Wood Hammer + Crunch would work the same way that Double Edge + Ice Fang does...

    Alright, so, Deck Knight needs to reissue Actions because Claydol is Taunted and can't use Telekinesis. He has two days to do so to avoid being DQ'd (but really I'm not going to let anyone get DQ'd; it's a GL match, after all). After that, IAR should reissue Actions based on Deck Knight's new Actions. For the time being, IAR, please edit out your Actions, as they are now null.

    Pokemon should conceivably be able to use the same motion and body parts for each part of a combo in order to complete the combo, so both Ice Fang (mouth)/Double-edge (whole body) and Wood Hammer (limb)/Crunch (mouth) are pushing it, imo.

    --------------------

    Firmoise and Utilitand take a defensive stance with a Protect and a Substitute, respectively! Good thing, because Deck's team goes for all-out offense, starting with Bishop's Psychic attack that gets absorbed by Utilitand's Light Screen and Substitute and finishing with Will's Mega Earthquake Combo that unfortunately only finishes off Utilitand's Substitute and doesn't accomplish much else. Utilitand then burrows underground, once again foiling Bishop's plan of attack and causing it to miss with an Ice Beam! This is bad news for Bishop, for Firmoise conjures up an enormous Atomic Seed Bomb combo of its own that does huge damage before Utilitand comes back up underground for some ineffectual damage on Will Powers! Then Utilitand puts the final nail in the coffin for poor frustrated Bishop, who gets KO'd after a bizarre Me First turns its Psychic attempt right back at it! Finally, Will Powers traps Firmoise in a Sand Tomb, but both of IAR's Pokemon look tired!

    Alright Bishop, you fought valiantly. Time to wrap this all up.

    I send out Rook! With Firmoise trapped in Sand Tomb, we have our foe right where we want him, heh.

    Random looked around the arena, as his rival sent in a Torterra to match his own. He knew that while he had a slight advantage, he knew that it would soon all be turned around...Let's just cut to the chase...

    "Alrightio, if we're going down, then we shall go down swinging. Utilitand, begin by making Will Powers lose focus on the Sand Tomb with a Comet Punch, even if he uses Protect (Since Will Powers will be focusing too much on keeping up the forcefield). Firmoise, I want you to use your last ounce of strength to throw in one final Wood Hammer on the opposing Torterra, now that you should be free...Yeah, just energy KO yourselves & let these final two mons in my possession do the rest..."

    Firmoise: Wood Hammer (Rook) x3
    (Once Only) IF Rook Protects successfully without transfer, THEN redirect your attack to Will Powers
    IF First sub triggered AND Will Powers also Protects successfully without transfer, THEN Chill


    Utilitand: Comet Punch (Will Powers) > Earth Power (Will Powers) x2

    Yup...You heard me, I'm just going to "sack" these two & hope for the best...This is where the battle really begins.

    Well, if our opponent insists on making a sacrifice...

    Rook, begin with Light Screen. Then use Rock Polish to massively increase your speed. Finish up with Stealth Rock to carve into your oncoming foes.

    Will Powers, use Magnet Rise, followed by a Substitute (25 HP), then Chill.

    Rook: Light Screen ~ Rock Polish ~ Stealth Rock

    Will Powers: Magnet Rise ~ Substitute (25 HP) ~ Chill

    Alright Rook, Will Powers, time to use our setup to its maximum advantage.

    Sheer Force still active

    Will Powers: it's time for a little entrapment. Begin with Twister + Sand Tomb, or as I like to call it: Earth Dragon Wind. Lets entrap both of our opponents in a flurry of sand tombs boosted by Draconic power! Not only will it entrap them, it will pummel both of their defenses at once. Finish up with Ice Fang (Gliscor).
    IF Gliscor uses Sandstorm in a combination action 1, drop it down to earth with Rock Slide (while also striking our foe Gastrodon and disrupting counterattacks, then Taunt, and use Sand Tomb on action 3 to entrap Gastrodon and keep it from directing counterattacks to Torterra.

    Rook: Time to wipe out Gastrodon with a heavy assault. Begin by hitting Gastrodon with Wood Hammer, then blast both of your foes with Razor Leaf + Leaf Storm!

    If Sandstorm is used by either foe and Gliscor is not using Evasive Agility action 1, nullify Gliscor's abilities with Worry Seed and proceed with your actions.
    If Gastrodon uses Dig on action 2, use Leech Seed on Gliscor, then Giga Drain Gastrodon.

    Will Powers: Twister + Sand Tomb ~ cool down ~ Ice Fang (Gliscor)
    IF Gliscor uses Sandstorm in a combination A1, Rock Slide ~ Taunt (Gliscor) ~ Sand Tomb (Gastrodon)

    Rook: Wood Hammer (Gastrodon) ~ Razor Leaf + Leaf Storm ~ cool down
    IF Sandstorm is used by either foe and Gliscor does not use Evasive Agility on action 1, Worry Seed (Gliscor) ~ Razor Leaf + Leaf Storm ~ cool down.
    IF Gastrodon uses Dig Action 2, Leech Seed (Gliscor) ~ Wood Hammer (Gastrodon)

    From Bulbapedia: "Counter will hit the last opponent that dealt physical damage to the attacker"

    Random felt rather pleased that he was attacking second, time to mount a comeback...

    "So, If this is indeed correct, DK's assault would be over as soon as it began. By my understanding, Rook will outspeed Capers, & that's EXACTLY what I want. After that Wood Hammer comes & pulverises Sleast for ~50 Damage, I want Capers to Protect Sleast to ensure that Capers takes the full brunt of that wind & only he is trapped & not Sleast. At this point, Rook would be the last to deal Physical Damage to Sleast leaving it wide open to an almighty Counter from Sleast which will finish that pesky Torterra off, leaving an exhausted Will Powers to fend for himself. With Rook out of the equation, now comes the fun part where we get to energy-lock Will Powers & ensure that his fate is sealed. Capers, you might be trapped, but you can still Taunt the Steelix to energy-lock it, while Sleast goes ahead & recovers himself after that attack. Sleast, I then want you to simply chill out, & Capers counters that Substitute after taking that Ice Fang, also piercing that draconic wind in the process!"

    Capers: Protect (Sleast, preventing him from being hit by the Draconic Wind combo) > Taunt (Will Powers) > Counter (Last Pokemon to hit you with a Physical attack, i.e. Will Powers)

    Sleast: Counter (Last Pokemon to hit you with a Physical attack, i.e. Rook) > Recover > Chill
    IF Rook is still alive after A1, THEN Ice Beam (Rook) A2, just to make sure he goes down without doing anything else...

    --------------------

    Its_A_Random releases his final two Pokemon, Sleast and Capers from earlier, to try and finish off Deck Knight's 'mons and win the battle! As they get smacked by the Stealth Rock trap laid on their side of the field, Rook slams forward with a speedy Wood Hammer that devastates poor Sleast! Capers, a moment too late, throws up a Protective shield around Sleast, which at least blocks Will's incoming Earth Dragon Wind attack, allowing Sleast to perform a devastating Counter-attack on Rook that completely Knocks it Out! Wow! Capers, trapped in Will's Tomb, still manages to Taunt the metal behemoth while its partner Recovers off some health from that huge blow and Chills to regain its energy! Then Will lashes out for an Ice Fang and connects, but Capers was ready and performs its own Counter-strike, leaving Will in slightly worse condition! It's all coming down to the wire now! The final Round is surely coming up soon!

    This was excellent. Not only did Random have a HP advantage, but he also had an Energy Advantage. He was within striking distance of victory, & honestly, there was not much DK could now now...Except RP...And even that wasn't going to help stop an energy lock...Probably...

    "Okay you two, it's time to wrap this match up. Capers, cut to the chase & apply the Taunt-Energy-Lock to our new foe. Sleast, I want you to annoy our foes with the Sandstorm we crave. Next action, even with the draconic wind trap, it will still not stop Capers from resting up his body for the damage he will probably take (Funniest thing being that Will Powers probably couldn't use Bind on Capers because of the trap potentially repelling any chance of Will Powers getting near Capers...Probably), as Sleast also plays the healing game, which will go uninterrupted thanks to our foes only attacking! Lastly, hopefully, the wind will be gone & I want Capers to burrow his way underground & strike Will Powers, convenient since combos don't work A3, & it should also free us of a Sand Tomb trap, should Will Powers abuse our rest time! Lastly, I want Sleast to Chill out. For Subs, Capers, If AquaVelva does the obvious Protect on the Taunt on herself, then switch A1 & A2 around! If your Dig would fail for whatever reason (Whether it be through some crazy trapping RP or not), then just Chill! Sleast, If Will Powers decides to blow up on an action where you are not using recover, then swap that action with the action you are meant to recover! Also, if AquaVelva uses Ice Beam while you are not Sand-Tomb Trapped when Steelix decides not to blow up, then use String Shot on AquaVelva to shut her mouth tight! With our adversaries battered, bruised, & incredibly tired, it will be virtually impossible to shave off 130 HP with only 50 Energy! Victory could be ours!"

    Capers: Taunt (AquaVelva) > Roost > Dig (Will Powers)
    IF AquaVelva uses Protect successfully without transfer A1, THEN swap A1 & A2

    IF Dig would fail for whatever reason THEN replace A3 with Chill

    Sleast: Sandstorm > Recover > Chill
    IF Will Powers would use Explosion (Combo or not) successfully when you are not using Recover, THEN swap the appropriate action with the Action you are supposed to use Recover
    (Once Only) IF AquaVelva would use Ice Beam (Combo or not) successfully when Will Powers is not using Explosion, AND you are not Sand-Tomb trapped, THEN String Shot (AquaVelva's Mouth, Muzzle it, so it cannot use attacks like Ice Beam/Blizzard & the like), AND push actions back


    (Potentially) GG DK. Not exactly the best thing I could do, but hey, looks like you will run out of energy first...Maybe...

    Might as well take a chance, considering how much I hate Sand Veil hax, and it lost my last match with IAR.

    Aquavelva, begin by finishing Capers off with a double Ice Beam combination. Between it and Will Power's trap, Capers will be finished, provided we hit. If not, well, like sucks, right? Using the combo will exhaust your energy, but we're not going down without a fight. Should you for some reason still have energy, use Earth Power on Sleast as a parting gift.

    Will Powers, assist Gastrodon by burning up Sleast's String Shot with Fire Fang, which will occur after Sleasts move but before Aquavelva can finish the combo. Then we'll direct our efforts to Sleast with low energy attacks. Use Sand Tomb followed by Rock Tomb to lower its speed and prepare for the next round.

    Aquavelva: Ice Beam + Ice Beam combination (Capers) ~ cool down ~ Earth Power (Sleast)

    Will Powers: Fire Fang (remove String Shot from Sleast so it can execute Ice Beam combo) ~ Sand Tomb (Sleast) ~ Rock Tomb (Sleast).


    It might be over, but don't count me out just yet IAR.

    --------------------

    Capers flies up and Taunts AquaVelva while its partner shoots a String Shot at the same target! Will Powers senses a threat from Sleast's attack that it snatches the silky strands out of the air and fries them to a crisp with a Fire Fang! This leaves an opening for AquaVelva to unleash a particularly Focused Ice Beam that does massive damage to Capers, but Knocks itself Out in the process! Oh no! Gliscor isn't safe, though, and gets finished off by Will's earlier combo! Sleast, on its lonesome, sets up a Sandstorm and Will takes some of that sand to create a Sand Tomb around Sleast, trapping it in place! Finally, Sleast Recovers back more damage, and Will once again goes on the offensive with a Rock Tomb, trapping Sleast even more beneath a pile of rocks and sand! This match is drawing to a close, so exciting!

    Wait, when did we decide the penalty for using a combo that exceeds EC was a reduction in damage? Last I remember the decision was that a combo couldn't be executed if the mon could not afford the base cost of the combination. (In this case IB + IB being 7 + 11 or 18)
