    "Well Dusk, time to have a taste of what I have in store. Don't bite off more than you can chew... that might be difficult. Will Powers, I choose you!"

    [​IMG]
    Abilities: Rock Head, Sturdy, Sheer Force.

    We'll start with Sheer Force Deactivated. Our foe is a crafty one, but he'll need a little luck, too.

    Start out this round with Taunt. Follow up with Sand Tomb, and while its all wrapped up, blast it with Dragonbreath. Our foe is a speedy devil, but I doubt he'll like the effects of Dragon flames any better than the ordinary kind.

    If our foe leads with his own Taunt, Smash hit with an Earthquake.

    Taunt ~ Sand Tomb ~ Dragonbreath
    Replace Taunt with Earthquake if Weavile Taunts.

    ROUND ONE: When There's a Will, There's a Way!

    Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the greatest ASB spectacle of them all! My name is DarkSlay, and welcome to ASB's first ever Highlight Match! On one side of the arena, we see a dashing trainer. Calculated, level-headed. Not even an Eruption would make him lose his cool! It's Rising_Dusk! He sends out his trusty friend Weavile the Weavile! In the other corner, we have a powerful opponent. Smart, refined. A true master of the Pokemon world! It's Deck Knight! He sends out his best friend Will Powers the Steelix! Weavile seems quite happy to be out on the field to battle, while Will Powers prepares itself for some heroic assaults! It's going to be one heck of a fight!

    Weavile is the first one off the bat with an attack. Look at that little guy go! It furiously Digs underground, preparing for a nasty attack! Will Powers starts showing off, heartily laughing in an attempt to Taunt his opponent. Alas, the digging Weavile dug too deep to witness the Taunt, so the move missed! Weavile springs up from the ground and smashes into Will Powers with all of its might! But Will Powers just stands there and smiles, as it only took miniscule damage from the super effective hit.

    Weavile takes the time to harness dark energy to surround himself. He crafts a dark Reflective barrier that surrounds himself. Physical attacks are weakened for six (6) actions! Will Powers spins around, creating ripples in the soft dirt. The ground collapses, trapping Weavile in a swirling Sand Tomb! Weavile is trapped for four (4) actions! Weavile starts to get pelted by the heavy sands, taking a bit of damage.

    Weavile doesn't seem to be worried about its situation, however. It craftily puts its hands together and starts a Claw Sharpen! Its Attack and Accuracy both raise by 1 stage! Steelix takes a deep breath of air and fires a legendary DragonBreath at his opponent. The breath surrounds Weavile, taking a small amount of damage. The sands of the Sand Tomb take their toll on Weavile.

    Will Powers seems to be barely harmed by the encounter, while Weavile seems to be scratched but empowered. However, how will the Sand Tomb affect Weavile as the match continues? Stay tuned to find out!

    (side note: Shouldn't Weavile's Speed be 144, not 124?)

    "I think it's time for a big break."

    Fortunately Will Powers, Weavile is a little tied up in Sand Tomb right now, but we can give it a little push out. Start with Dragon Tail to reset Weavile's senses, it'll have difficulty punching through while it's trapped in sand. Then use Sandstorm to counteract your opponent's Hail, and finish with Stealth Rock.

    If you've been confused and hit yourself in confusion on the second action, use Sandstorm as your third action.

    ROUND TWO: Seeing Stars!

    Welcome back viewers as we continue this exciting Highlight Match between two ASB heavyweights! Weavile winces as it looks for escape from the Sand Tomb, but manages to use its blinding speed to get close to Will Powers and smash it with a DynamicPunch right on the head! It hits for decent damage, but Steelix seems a bit shaken up after the hit. It became confused (3 Actions)! Will Powers stumbles around looking to regain its senses. As it stumbles around, its large tail swings back and forth, smashing into the trapped Weavile with a Dragon Tail! It's slowed down by the Reflect, but the force of the impact flings Weavile to the other side of the arena, causing it to lose the hard work it put into the previous round. Weavile loses its boosts, but is knocked out of the Sand Tomb! Weavile peels itself from the end of the arena and stands ready to fight.

    Weavile starts shooting a massive amount of icicle blasts into the air, creating cold currents within the clouds. The clouds above the arena swirl and twirl, and seconds later, a massive Hail storm begins! Hail is in effect for six (6) rounds! Will Powers is still stumbling, but its wild movements have led it to spin rapidly around in the dirt. Dust, dirt, and sand gets kicked into the air, and the weather immediately changes to a Sandstorm! Sand is in effect for six (6) rounds!

    Furious that its freezing tactics became futile, Weavile runs at full speed towards its opponent, smashing it in with another DynamicPunch! The force of the blow distorts Will Powers' vision, and it hits itself in confusion! However, Will Powers comes to his senses after realizing that it hit itself. It's been a confusing round, but which Pokemon will take advantage of this cat-and-mouse approach their opponent is giving them?

    "It would appear we are evenly matched. Let's change that."

    Excellent work Will Powers. Let's continue the attack now that the weather is in our favor. Sheer Force will remain Deactivated for the next two rounds.

    Begin by ensnaring Weavile with Sand Tomb, and while it's kept in place by your the whirling sands, chomp down from above with Fire Fang and finish with Dragonbreath. If Weavile attempts to escape Sand Tomb with Dig, Earthquake it instead.

    ARENA EFFECT: Sandstorm (Five Rounds)

    BEGIN ROUND THREE

    Weavile begins the round by using its Dark energy to create a Protective shield around itself. Looks like it's bracing for an attack! Will Powers once again spins around, creating a Sand Tomb that surrounds Weavile! However, Weavile uses its its shield as a platform, and jumps off it safely and out of danger. Weavile protected itself! The reflective shield that surrounded Weavile's side of the field has disappeared! The Sandstorm rages, buffeting Weavile!

    Weavile takes the time to, once again, shoot small shards of freezing ice into the air, creating cold currents in the air and summoning a Hail storm! Hail will be in effect for six (6) rounds! Will Powers creeps close to Weavile and lights its fangs on fire. It chomps down on the small Weavile with its Fire Fangs! It hits for good damage. The Hail rages, buffeting Will Powers!

    Weavile dances around Will Powers, sticking out its tongue in a Taunting fashion. Will Powers takes notice of Weavile's antics, and falls for the Taunt! Will Powers uses this anger to draw mystical powers from within itself once again, and fires a Dragonbreath at Weavile. This time, the Dragonbreath's power leaves Weavile stunned, and Weavile is paralyzed!

    Alright Will Powers, time to assert yourself. Begin with Sand Tomb, then use Iron Tail and Rock Tomb.

    BEGIN ROUND FOUR

    Weavile begins the round by once again using dark energy to create a Reflective shield to surround its side of the field with. Weavile stands in the middle, laughing evilly at its cunning tactics. Will Powers, however, smashes through the reflective shield and spins around Weavile tightly, creating a Sand Tomb that forces Weavile to its knees, striking a CRITICAL HIT as it makes its way to the middle of the shifting sand.

    Weavile tries to relax itself to regain some of the energy it has lost, but its body stiffens up, and Weavile becomes fully paralyzed! Steelix quickly takes advantage of the opportunity by aiming at Weavile and unleashing a mighty Iron Tail attack! However, the Sand Tomb's strength kicked up a bit too much dust and sand, blinding Will Powers from its target and making the move miss!

    Weavile decides once again to prepare itself for battle by Honeing its Claws. It clinks and clanks its sharp claws together, making them sharper than swords. Steelix manages to shift its tail around to a nearby pile of hard rocks. He throws the rocks down the Sand Tomb, engulfing Weavile in a Rock Tomb! The rocks crumble over Weavile, pinning it down and lowering its Speed by one stage!

    "Tighten your grip, Will Powers"

    We'll have Sheer Force Deactivated once again.

    Will Powers, lets clean this up. Begin with Fire Fang, follow up with Thunder Fang, and end the action with a Chill. Since you lowered Weavile's Speed the last action of last round, it should have some difficulty stopping your onslaught. If Weavile successfully manages to Taunt you before you can Chill, use Sand Tomb as your last action instead.

    Fire Fang ~ Thunder Fang ~ Chill
    If you are Taunted before your third action, use Sand Tomb on your third action instead.

    ARENA EFFECT: Hail (Five Rounds)

    BEGIN ROUND FOUR

    With both Pokemon low on energy, it seems that this match-up will be decided by the Pokemon with the most willpower! Will Powers, who somehow has found itself to be more agile than Weavile this time around, bites into its foe with a menacing Fire Fang. It hist for moderate damage, but fails to faze Weavile. Weavile paces back and forth at a decent speed, making itself a bit faster with boosted Agility, enough to once again out-pace Will Powers.

    Weavile once again tries to relax itself to regain energy, but its muscles tighten up too much, and it becomes fully paralyzed! Steelix responds with a menacing Thunder Fang, biting deep into Weavile for laughable damage. Seems that the Reflective shield has made Steelix a bit toothless!

    Weavile, on its last legs, issues one last challenge towards Will Powers. It raises its head, waves its fingers for more, and successfully Taunts its opponent before valiantly fainting in front of its trainer. WEAVILE HAS RAN OUT OF ENERGY! Steelix paces in frustration, knowing that its enemy has fainted but still lusts for blood and damage!

    Will Powers, weak from exhaustion yet furious about its opponent, issues one final attempt to Earthquake Lucario before it faints. However, Lucario creates a magnetic current within its steel bindings, lifting him above the ground with a Magnet Rise. The ground releases a large tremor, but Lucario float above it without taking much damage at all. Will Powers spins about, then falls to the ground in exhaustion. WILL POWERS HAS FAINTED

    I think its best if we show Lucario it's all washed up. Begin with Rain Dance, then Scald, and follow up with Water Pulse.

    If Lucario successfully uses Substitute, create your own Substitute (25 HP) that action and move your original action back.

    BEGIN ROUND SIX

    Deck Knight looks fondly upon Will Powers' pokeball as he recalls the massive steel snake. In response, he sends out AquaVelva the Gastrodon to take on Rising_Dusk's Lucario.

    Lucario is not intimidated by the Gastrodon's display of blobiness, and leaps in for a powerful Hi Jump Kick, sending a rebounding wobble on to AquaVelva's soft face. AquaVelva shrugs off the powerful attack, and she begins a strange ceremony, Dancing about to bring on the Rain. The hail suddenly subsides as the clouds open up into a torrential storm.

    Lucario halts his attacking momentarily and prepares a defensive Substitute with some of his own life force. AquaVelva sees her opponents choice, and creates a stronger Substitute of her own. Both battlers are now safely behind substitutes.

    Lucario then continues the offense with another Hi Jump Kick, arcing across the arena towards AquaVelva. Just before the kick connects, the Gastrodon slides behind her substitute and the doll takes the damage for her. As Lucario sprints back towards his side of the field, AquaVelva sends a blast of Scalding water towards him. He managed to get behind substitute in time and the fake Lucario was pounded with the burning water, empowered by the rain around it.

    "Alright AquaVelva, you can take the heat."

    Begin with Protect. Your opponent is strong, but not strong enough to break your Sub with Feint. How unfortunate. Then break Lucario's Substitute with an Ancientpower! If we're lucky we'll get a godsend, literally. Finish the round with Scald. We're gonna burn like Disco Inferno!

    Protect ~ Ancientpower ~ Scald
