Glacier panted harshly as the cool air heated up around him. All the exertion and effort was getting to him, so he removed his furry coat. With that out of the way, he continued to hammer at the rocky wall, alongside Truffles, his dear Mamoswine. The latter was having much more success at the task, boring deep gashes into the grit and granite with impressive tusks. Taking a quick look at his mighty companion Glacier smiled, then hurried back to hammering with the pick axe, trying to keep up with the beast. Being human, he possibly couldn't and after another another of the strenuous task he had to find a smooth cavern formation to rest on. The shade wasn't too harsh, as the Cavern's entrance began thirty or so feet away from the spot. The cave was quite shallow, and nothing special. But the venturing teen was told of a legendary myth, and he had to find out whether it was true or not. As Glacier wiped the sweat off his brow, he began to imagine the wonder and magic of this place. Apparently, somewhere deep in this mountain system was a lost land, a land of great beauty and diversity. Pristine Forests, Crystal Lakes, Savage Waterfalls, even Mountains! Mountains within Mountains? Glacier HAD to find this place. It was just what he wanted, a place perfect for battling. It was his self-assigned job, of course. Find new and exciting places! Set up teleportation devices, and then people can come and battle in exotic locations everyday! That was his goal. Glacier wanted to Bankrupt that boring old ASB Arena. Get those kids out of the coliseum and into the Wild! Suddenly, a loud grunt and crumble of debris shook the cavern and Glacier's dreamy mind. He stumbled to his feet as he spied Truffles standing in front of a newly made hole. It was very large, and it seemed as if it was made centuries ago, and it was just hidden. Glacier suddenly felt a surge of adrenaline. "Holy Crap. Truffles, we've found the jackpot!" Glacier exclaimed. The Pokemon gave a snort of triumph, and the two slowly strolled into the new-found cavern, hoping to find where the ancient tunnel led to. xxx "Holy Shi- i mean, jeez Glacier." Lou gaped as the tunnel abruptly ended. Light blinded the cunning Trainer, and Lou had to strain for a moment as his eyes adjusted from the pitch-black to sudden sunshine. "Are we still underground?" Another voice asked, and Objection, Glacier's other guest, walked nonchalantly into the bizarre scene. Glacier grinned childishly as his friends took in the scene. It truly was magnificent. "This is going to be he most used arena EVER! Leethoof's Soup will have nothing on it." He chattered freely, as his companions surveyed the land. "So," Objection began, started to remove pokeballs of various colors and textures from his belt "Are we the guinea pigs?" Glacier nodded, but then quickly spoke out "Ah! not guinea pigs Objection, that sounds demeaning..... but i DID need two skilled trainers to try it out. Before i set up the teleporters." Lou snorted. "Oh i see. Well then, shall we begin?" Glacier gave a suddenly devilish grin. Thought you'd never ask, he thought, and with a sudden snap of his fingers, the world turned black. Darkness filled the two Trainer's eyes, and they could see nothing. Feel nothing. Hear nothing, until Glacier's voice appeared in their minds. "Hey! So, this place is really cool! I found this ancient piece of technology, and instead of giving it to a museum like a normal person would, i tampered with it! AND, i found out some pretty cool tricks! keke.... let's begin this battle guys! Show me your moves!" The lights suddenly flashed on, and the Two trainers gasp at the area. Battle Rules: 6vs6 singles 2 Day DQ Items are allowed All abilities are activated Switching is allowed Arena: As your eyes adjust to the arena, you see a simple, yet interesting scene. The Arena is circular (100 feet wide and long), with you and your opponent on opposite sides, far from each other. The Floor feels slimy, and upon further examination it seems a thin but prominent coating of mud is present. It has a moderate level of viscosity, so it hampers speed just a little. It is dark, and could definitely impair sight. The edges of the arena are high, and are rocky cliffs. On them, perched precariously on the rocky sides, are bonsai-like trees, twisted elegantly to balance on the cavern's walls. The walla are climbable, and around 20 feet in the air the cliffs suddenly are cut off, and it seems as though the area is flat. What lies on top? i guess you will have to find out. Also, there are glittering gems scattered throughout the arena floor. some are hidden in the mud, but some protrude, allowing you to see a wonderful variety of color. Some of the gems seem sharp and jagged, while some are quite smooth and delicate. If you look straight up, all you see it white. Are you outside? Can weather be used? You cannot tell for sure; will you risk finding out? it seems this place is just itching for you to interact with it. Order of Operations (I coinflipped, Lou will command first) Objection will Send out his first pokemon and Equip it with an item Lou will Send out his first pokwmon, Equip it with an item, and command it to attack Objection with counter-command Glacier will ref the match Goodluck to you both! Remember, use your wit and the surroundings!
