The contestants find themselves in a cave with an eerie light, as well as strange runes on the sides. Their exit path has been blocked by a rockfall, so they are stuck. And it looks like I am stuck with them! The light is a blue glow, and something about it seems very much off... On that happy note, here is our first contestant, Glacier Knight! Bringing an Ice-type and a Water-type down here does not seem like the smartest of choices. Nevertheless, it is a formidable team. Here is our next contestant, Texas Cloverleaf! Here is Texas, my rival for Dragon Gym. I'll try not to kill him so I can have some competition by the time Round 3 gyms come around. Our next contestant is Yarnus of Bethany. Yum!

Abilities: Oblivious: (Innate) This Pokemon is incapable of being affected by Attract or Cute Charm.

(M) Nature: Adamant (Attack increased by *; Special Attack reduced by *) Type: Normal Normal: Normal STAB; adapt comfortably to any surrounding after 3 actions. Able to use Outrage without losing focus. Abilities: Technician: Type: Innate This Pokemon is more skilled at performing weaker moves, causing any of their one-hit or two hit attacks that normally have 6 or less Base Attack Power to have their Base Attack Power on each hit multiplied by 1.5. (e.g. Aerial Ace goes from 6 to 9, Mach Punch goes from 4 to 6, Double Hit to from 4 per hit to 6 per hit 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. Technician only applies to combos in the rare case that an initial hit will have 6 or less BAP. Pick Up: (Innate) This Pokemon has a natural habit of collecting items. Whenever a hold item (its own or an opponents) is used or knocked onto the ground with a move like Knock Off, this Pokemon will immediately pick up that item without using an action. It can also grab dropped or naturally occuring hold items in arenas. Skill Link: (Innate)(unlocked) This Pokemon’s skillfull aim makes its multi-hit moves always hit 5 times. The Energy Cost of multi-hit attacks is increased by three (3).

Toxic Poisoning will not do damage; however, it will continue to grow more severe. Thick Fat: Type: Innate This Pokemon has a great deal of extra fat or muscle that increases its resistance to extreme heat or extreme cold, reducing the type effectiveness of Fire-and Ice-typed attacks to the next level of resistance (2x weak becomes neutral, neutral becomes resistance, etc.) Gluttony: Type: Innate This Pokemon devours healing and stat increasing berries at 50% health (flat) instead of 25% health (flat).
