    IAR and Wobbanaut square off for a match in celebration of IAR's many posts, lets see the teams!

    IAR
    Capers (M) (open)
    [​IMG]
    Gliscor(*) [Capers] (M)
    NATURE: Jolly (+14% Accuracy) (NC)

    TYPE
    Ground: Ground STAB; Immune to all electrical attacks, can Dig through almost any substance, Evasive Digging reduced from 6 per action Energy Cost to 5 per action, superior senses in darkened cave surroundings.
    Flying: Flying STAB; immunity to Ground attacks except under the effects of Smack Down and Gravity, even for ground-based flying Pokemon. Will always hit foes with Dig (except other Flying types) and Dive. Cannot be hit by Dive unless the attacking Pokemon has a size class greater than four (4). Immune to Spikes and Toxic Spikes. Enhanced aerial mobility. Superior senses in open air arenas.

    ABILITIES
    Hyper Cutter: (Innate) This Pokemon always keeps its claws/teeth/pincers extremely sharp, and thus cannot have its attack reduced.
    Sand Veil: (Innate) This Pokemon is used to reacting in desert conditions and gets a 20% evasion boost during Sandstorms. Pokemon with this ability are immune to Sandstorm damage.
    Poison Heal (DW): (Innate) Pokemon with this ability have internal structures that absorb the toxins in poison and uses them to recover two (2) HP/action instead of taking poison damage. When a Pokemon with Poison Heal inflicts Poison on themselves with an attack, it uses up one of their Recovery Moves. If Toxic'd, the Toxic counter will still go up each round and Toxic will do the relevant damage for that round should their ability be disabled.

    TYPE
    Electric: Electric STAB; 50% reduction in paralysis chance from other electrical attacks, perfect accuracy and 30% chance of Protect breaking Thunder during Rain. Superior senses in power plant environments.

    ABILITIES
    Levitate: (Trait) This Pokemon naturally floats above the earth when released or easily takes flight, evading Ground moves like Bulldoze, Dig, Earthquake, and Magnitude. Other 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.
    Glyph of Light Screen: (Raid Glyph) Causes Light Screen to affect the entire team instead of three Pokémon only.

    NATURE: Timid (+10% Accuracy)

    TYPE

    Ghost: Ghost STAB; brief intangibility that nullifies Normal and Fighting-type attacks. Can move through walls for a brief period of time but must remain in motion. Superior senses in low light and inside dark buildings. Have no vision reduction in hazes.
    Fire: Fire STAB; immune to burn, 50% reduction in freeze chance, emit a low glow in dark places, takes additional damage if active open flames are exposed to a water attack. Superior senses in volcanic or bushfire areas.

    ABILITIES
    Flash Fire: (Innate) This Pokemon thrives in high temperatures, and takes the energy of any opposing fire attack, nullifies the damage, and uses the additional power to boost its own fire attack’s Base Attack Power by two (2). Self-targeted attacks do not give the boost.
    Flame Body: (Innate) This Pokemon’s external temperature is kept at such a high level that any contact attack used on this Pokemon has a 30% chance of burning the opponent.
    Shadow Tag (DW): (Innate) Upon entry into battle, this Pokemon’s Shadow expands across the arena and dissipates, forcing opposing Pokemon to stay within 10 metres of this Pokemon. The Shadow entirely negates the ability to switch for every Pokemon except those who also have Shadow Tag.

Will always hit foes with Dig (except other Flying types) and Dive. Cannot be hit by Dive unless the attacking Pokemon has a size class greater than four (4). Immune to Spikes and Toxic Spikes. Enhanced aerial mobility. Superior senses in open air arenas.

    ABILITIES

    Hustle: (Can be Enabled) This Pokemon puts immense force and speed in its physical attacks, increasing the Base Attack Power of all its physical attacks by three (3), but the haste used lowers their accuracy to 80% of normal.
    Insomnia (DW): (Innate) This Pokemon is immune to sleep induced by other Pokemon. It's normal state of sleeplessness makes it take 1 less damage and energy/action from Ghost Curse. If it is put to sleep by a Pokemon with Mould Breaker it will wake up the next action. If a Pokemon with Insomnia also has Vital Spirit, its accuracy is raised by one (1) stage permanently.

    Handy the Ambipom (open)

    [​IMG]
    Ambipom(Handy)M
    Nature: Adamant(+Att , -Spa )
    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:[Type: 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: [Type: Innate] [DW] 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).

    Haxorus[Bloodshed](M)
    Nature: Adamant(+Att, -Spa)
    Dragon:Dragon STAB; more in touch with legendary or special auras in arenas. Able to use Thrash without losing focus.

    Abilities:

    Rivalry:[Type: Innate] This Pokemon has a primal response to competition and mating, increasing the Base Attack Power of all its attacks by two (2) when it attacks an opponent of the same gender in the same Egg Group, and decreasing the power of all its attacks by two (2) when it faces an opponent of the opposite gender in the same Egg Group (Monster/Ground are used for Nidorina/Nidoqueen).
    Mold Breaker:[Type: Innate]Whenever this Pokemon attacks, it emits an invisible, blindingly quick pulse preceding the attack that disables the opponents natural abilities (e.g. Levitators plummet towards the ground before Earthquake hits, Volt Absorb will not absorb electric attacks, Clear Body does not prevent stat-drops, etc.)
    Unnerve:[Type: Innate][DW]The Pokemon's presense causes immense tension in the opponent, preventing them from eating a held Berry. Natural Gift may still be used.

    Dragon:Dragon STAB; more in touch with legendary or special auras in arenas. Able to use Thrash without losing focus.

    Abilities:

    Swift Swim:[Type: Innate]The Pokemon with this ability moves extremely fast in slick, rainy conditions, doubling (x2) its Speed in the rain.
    Sniper:[Type: Innate]This Pokemon has deadly accuracy and strikes sensitive points, increasing its critical hit bonus from +3 to +5 on single attacks, +2 to +3 on two-hit attacks, and +1 to +2 on multi-hit attacks.
    Damp:[Type: Innate][DW]This Pokemon releases a damp mist upon entry into battle that short circuits the opponent’s ability to use Selfdestruct or Explosion.

    Fission the Reuniclus (open)

    [pimg]609[/pimg]
    Reuniclus[Fission](M)
    Nature: Brave(+Att, -Spe, -10%Eva)
    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:

    Overcoat:[Type: Innate]This Pokemon has a sturdy exterior that rebuffs the elements, making it immune to damage inflicted by bad weather. If the Pokemon is already immune to at least one (1) kind of weather by typing or a different ability, Overcoat reduces the Base Attack Power of all oncoming attacks by one (1).
    Magic Guard:[Type: Innate]This Pokemon is infused with a powerful psycho-electric energy that makes it immune to damage from Spikes, Stealth Rock, Hail, Sandstorm, Leech Seed, Poisoning, and Burn. It can still attack itself in confusion, but will not take any damage from it. Additionally, the energy protects the Pokemon from its own reckless recoil attacks. Toxic still increases in damage each round, although if Magic Guard is in effect the Pokemon will not suffer any damage. Life Orb recoil is not negated.
    Regenerator:[Type: Innate][DW]When this Pokemon is switched out during a switch battle, it reacts to the energy in the Pokeball and (ten) 10 HP is restored. When this Pokemon Chills, it restores six (6) HP in addition to its 12 Energy.

    I had been planning to ref the arena at the beginning of each round but that would be me not reading closely. The arena is....(roll=136/255)

    Arena: Strong Badia
    Field Type: Neutral
    Complexity: Simple enough to be a viable alternative to the ASB arena
    Format: All
    Restrictions No Water Source

    [​IMG]
    A field with a white picket fence along the edge. There is also a tyre leaning on the fence and a stop sign with graffiti on it leaning on a cinder block. There is no external water source for moves like Surf and Soak. Apart from that, everything else can be used as normal.

    Reuniclus's paralysis stage decreased (10%)


    We kick off this match teleporting through spaaaaaaaaaaaace and settle into an area known as the Strong Badia. A simple place, most everything is allowed with the exception of an etxernal water source.

    Analyzing the situation, IAR sends out his trusty Sheeldon the Eelektross, while Wobbanaut counters with Reuniclus. These are both powerful attackers, and it looks to be a battle of damage in this one.

    Sheeldon starts off the match with a warning Thunderbolt across the bows of Reuniclus, warning it from trying anything tricky. Heedless of the attack, Reuniclus sets up a Reflective barrier to ward further physical attacks.

    Sheeldon keeps up the offensive pressure with a Volt Switch, preparing to return to its Pokeball shortly. This could prove to be a wise idea, as Reuniclus fires balls of Psychic energy which shock Sheeldon.

    Regaining its composure, Sheeldon returns to form with another Thunderbolt, this time paralysing Reuniclus! Reuniclus gets angry and decided enough is enough, hitting Sheeldon with a strong Psychic in response.

    At the end of the round both Pokemon are still healthy but are beginning to wear down. Sheeldon returns to its Pokeball and IAR prepares to send out his second PoOkemon.

    Imprison (Imprison | Shadow Ball | Pain Split) > Shadow Ball > Hex
    IF Snatch is issued when you are scheduled to use Imprison, THEN use Shadow Ball that action, pushing actions back.
    IF Light Screen is issued when you are scheduled to use Imprison, THEN use Shadow Ball on the first instance, pushing actions back.

    soz IAR, not used to teleportation, the arena thing keeps slipping in and out of my mind

    Time Traveller's Forest
    [​IMG]
    Arena: Time Traveller's Forest
    Field Type: Diverse
    Complexity: Intense
    Format: All
    Restrictions: Weather moves won't work.

    Description:
    A simple little grove in the middle of a forest, with a 50m clearing in the middle. A river runs silently off to the side of the arena, about 2.5m deep and 3m wide, and sunlight flutters softly down onto this picturesque scene. So, what make this arena so special?

    Time Travel.

    At the beginning of every round, Celebi shows up (Non-catchable) and shifts everyone from the current timeline to a random alternate (Schroeder's Cat Principle. It's Quantum Physics, hard to explain). The potential timelines are:

    - Natural Life: The starting arena. Call it home if you like, because it'll be the only promise of comfort you'll get. No special effects.
    - Forest Fire: Tiger, Tiger, burning bright... All Fire Moves enjoy a +2BP Boost, while Water Moves suffer a -2BP Boost. In adition, all pokemon unused to the intense heat with have -1 Accuracy.
    - Industrialization: Welcome to the Streets. Desolate for as far as the eye can see, nothing but concrete and iron under the harsh street lamps of the Big City. The river and all the trees are gone, and Seismic Activity and Dig are unusable. Steel, Poison and Electric types are right at home, and have the Energy cost reduced of all moves by 2.
    - Drought: Sunlight, so harsh it burns. The trees have lost their leaves, and offer little to no relief to wary battlers. All Grass-Types will be treated as if they have Solar Power, as well as their normal abilities. Water-types will also be treated as if they have Dry Skin.
    - Storm: Thunderbolts and Lightning, very very Frightening! The river has flooded, and everyone has about 50cm of water around their ankles! This impedes foot-movement, and all moves that require going up and striking your opponent to have negative priority. Flying types, Levitators and Water-types are able to ignore this, due to their ability to avoid/thrive in watery conditions.
    - Deadland: The river dried up, and the land died with it. Nothing but Sand as far as the eye can see, which isn't very far, with the giant Sandstorm in your face. Pokemon uncomfortable with Desert conditions have -1 Accuracy.
    - Snowbound: Welcome to a Winter Wonderland. Weather is Snowing (Hail, without the damage per Action). Pokemon unfit for Winter conditions will move slower than normal.
    - Volcanic Pile: From out of the ashes I leap! The volcano has long since died down, but its scar against the countryside is left forever. The ground is rocky and loose, giving all direct damaging attacks a 1/10 of outright failing, with the exception of Flying, Rock, Ground or Levitating Pokemon.
    - Midnight in a Perfect World: Identical to Natural Life, but during the Night. Because of the tranquility, a sense of peace befalls all Pokemon; Chilling regains 10 health as well as 18% Energy, and Recoveries are 50% more effective, and will work with their maximum level of effectiveness (even Sythesis/Morning Sun). This peace also affects a Pokemon's fighting prowess; All Pokemon's Attack and Special Attack Ranks are halved, rounded up.
    - 1994 Kanto: Taking it way back, when Pokemon was just ≈150. Long before the Physical/Special Split, Abilities, Items and Natures, there was these 16-bit trees and the most catchy music in the world. If you haven't worked out what the conditions are, look it over.

    And any other little place that may pop into the Ref's head, as long as it's simple.


    ~OR~


    Time passes by quite quickly. Every Second Round, we move on to a new Phase of the Day:

    Daybreak: Casual battle. Low light, Optimism. Hopes begin at around this time of the day. (No effect)
    Midday: Better grab the Sunscreen, it's gettin' hot! (Sunny Day)
    Sunset: As the day fades away, bright reds and yellows draw your eyes away from the fight. (Accuracy Drop)
    Midnight: It's cold, it's dark, and now there's a thunderstorm coming! Great! (Raining)
    Daybreak again, so on and so forth.



    RNG states Volcanic Pile!

    Chandelure used Imprison (Imprison, Shadow Ball, Pain Split)! (-8 EN)
    The moves were sealed off for 6a

    74=no para
    Reuniclus used Confuse Ray! (-5 EN)

    no crit (6)
    (7+3)*1.5=15

    40=no para
    Reuniclus used Protect! (-19 EN)

    Chandelure snapped out of confusion!
    Chandelure used Hex! (-6 EN)
    no crit (13)
    (12+3+5)*1.5=30 damage blocked

    Reuniclus's paralysis stage decreased


    Chandelure enters the fray and wastes no time Imprisoning Reuniclus, sealing off almost all of its options. With little else to do Reuniclus sends a Confuse Ray at Chandelure, slightly confusing it. This proves to be a worthwhile strategy, as Chandelure hits itself in confusion, allowing Reuniclus a free shot with its Hidden Power. Knowing Chandelure can put the hurt on, Reuniclus Protects itself, a wise strategy, though a costly one, as the barrier absorbs Chandelure's powerful Hex.

    "Sheeldon, we certainly have an option for that!"

    Switch Phase: Glowfire > Sheeldon

    Dragon Claw > Thunderbolt > Dragon Claw
    IF Focus Energy is issued, THEN use Gastro Acid on the first instance.
    IF Pyrophobe has Double Team clones up when you act, THEN use Discharge that action.

    Kingdra Bounced up high!

    It missed!

    Kingdra used Bounce! (-10 EN)
    no para (80)

    Eelektross used Thunderbolt! (-7 EN)

    Kingdra used Disable (Dragon Claw)! (-7 EN)
    Dragon Claw is disabled!

    Sheeldon tried to use Dragon Claw!
    Dragon Claw is disabled!



    Kingdra and Eelektross hit the field in place of Reuniclus and Chandelure. Kingdra bounces up high to avoid a Dragon Claw before landing on Eelektross. It then fires a Hydro Pump to the face, although Eelektross uses this jet of a water to send a Thunderbolt dancing back at Kingdra. Finally, Kingdra focuses its power on Eelektross, Disabling Dragon Claw and causing Eeletross to be unable to act.

    The arena suddenly teleports around us and we end up in...the ASB Arena!

    Arena: MoonSim Inc.
    Field Type: Neutral
    Complexity: Moderate/Intense
    Format: Singles

    In the deserts of Nevada, there is a deceptively large building. Why 'deceptively' large? While it seems to sprawl out across the dunes, there is actually only one room. Indeed, it is a large room, but nothing spectacular.

    Though it may seem weathered and abandoned from the outside, the interior of MoonSim Inc. is as full of hustle and business as any modern corporation, but with a subtle difference. In the middle of the room, only separated from black marble flooring and whirring machinery by a knee-height plexiglass barrier, there is 100ft x 80ft of the moon. Or close enough, anyway.

    Hitting the temptingly-red button causes a large Pokémon battling arena to erupt from the centre, immediately entrancing the multiple Elgyem acting as aides to the scientists. They were found here in the desert about twenty years ago, and MoonSim Inc. was subsequently founded on the site. The founders couldn't remember why they'd made it - it was just as if the idea had popped into their minds. Anyway, I digress.

    Gravity is being tested today, so there will be two effects in progress: 1) When the match Seeker's Pokémon is winning, all Pokémon gain the Levitate trait, and accuracy of all moves is lowered by a flat 10%.
    2) When the match Seeker's Pokémon is losing, strong Gravity comes into effect.

    Whether a Pokémon is winning or losing is decided by 100-([(Damage taken + energy spent) / (HP at start of round + energy at start of round)]*100).


    I hate teleportation

    IF (Non-Combo Evasive Damaging Move) is issued without suspense, AND Pyrophobe out-speeds, THEN use Fly that action.
    IF Blizzard is disabled, THEN replace all remaining instances of Blizzard with Ice Beam.
