    Hello, if you're not involved, please don't post in this thread until the battle's completion. Thank you.

    In an arena where Fire Types can finally get their revenge over Water Types, two trainers go to war. On one hand, we have EspyOwner, a relatively new Trainer, & on the other hand, we have a veteran in the form of Lord Jesseus. What did they bring, we'll see soon. First, the regs.

    REGULATIONS

    1v1 NFE Singles
    1 day DQ
    5 chills/2 recovers
    1 Substitution
    Switch=OK
    Abilities=One
    Items=Training Items only
    ASB Tournament Arena - The "Weird Zone" (open)
    Arena: ASB Tournament Arena - The "Weird Zone"
    Field Type: Neutral
    Complexity: Moderate
    Format: All

    Restrictions: No Restrictions

    Description: Surrounded by thousands of screaming Pokemon fans, the ASB Arena can be best described as a standard Pokemon battling arena. In the center of the arena lies a dirt-based floor outlined to show two separate sides (With a white Pokeball centre). Surrounding the dirt is a moat filled with water. The moat is about 4.5m wide and creates a perimeter around the dirt arena. The arena itself is 24m wide, 33m long. All moves, weathers, and abilities are legal for the match, since it's an outdoor arena with a large water source and packed dirt. Pokemon must stay in the arena (or the dimensions of the arena in the case of Flying Pokemon, who cannot leave the arena and cannot fly higher than 18m). This prevents Pokemon from injuring the crowd watching the tournament. There are no outside interruptions by fans, Pokemon, or other elements not associated with the current battle.
    However, there is one slight difference in this battle, though: ALL TYPE ADVANTAGES ARE REVERSED
    Weaknesses become resitances and resistances become weakness. Ice becomes uber defensive, Aggron gets raped viciously by tackle.
    (Immunities become 2x weaknesses)
    Also this only applies to the actual typing; weaknesses, resistances and immunities granted by abilties are unaffected.
    That's about all there is to say.


    Now the teams:

    Dark: Dark STAB; Immunity to all telepathic and telekinetic attacks, better performance in all darkened and especially twilight conditions. Can use any Dark-type attack regardless of Attraction.

    Abilities:
    Compoundeyes: (Innate) This Pokemon’s complex eyes give it a comprehensive view of the field, making its attack 30% (x1.3) more accurate.
    Run Away: (DW) (Innate) This Pokemon is quick on its feet and will evade any field traps and hazards that would harm it (Spikes, Stealth Rock, Toxic Spikes) in an arena. A Pokemon can still absorb Toxic Spikes if it has Run Away and is Poison-typed. Run Away does not allow the Pokemon to switch out of trapping moves or abilities, however it can escape other situational trapping strategies in battle.

    EspyOwner vs. Lord Jesseus (1v1 Singles) - IAR Refs - Round 1

    ESPYOWNER VS. LORD JESSEUS

    Round One - Fight!

    In a 1v1 Battle where weaknesses are inverted, EspyOwner & Lord Jesseus, accompanied by a Deino named Hercules, & a Nincada named Sampi do battle! How will this turn out? Let's see.

    Hercules opens by interfering with the mind of Sampi, subjecting him into a state where he has to not be repetitive. In response, Sampi goes on the offensive, slashing Hercules with his claw. This doesn't stop Hercules, though, who swears at Sampi, offending him! Sampi then burrows underground, & a short time later, pops out & rams into Hercules for some more damage! Hercules then goes on the offensive, biting Sampi & dealing damage. Sampi remains a cool customer, however, & slashes Hercules again, as the round comes to a close.

    With the round done, Sampi seemingly has the advantage for now, perhaps Hercules spent too much time offending Sampi? Will Hercules' slow start cost him dearly? Or will he haul in the deficit to Sampi? Find out on the next exciting episode of CAP ASB Tower Matches...

    EspyOwner vs. Lord Jesseus (1v1 Singles) - IAR Refs - Round 2

    ESPYOWNER VS. LORD JESSEUS

    Round Two - That Was Supposed To Be Not Very Effective, Right?

    After a first round where Hercules restricts Sampi & Sampi deals damage, all the signs point towards a damage race! How will it unfold? Let's see.

    Hercules opens by detonating the ground below Sampi, & deals damage. But what is this? It was Super Effective? I thought Bug resists Ground...Well, Stranger things have happened...As Sampi prepares a counterattack, firing a red beam at Hercules...And it is also Super Effective...How the fuck did that happen? I don't know, but something's not right at the ASB Tournament Arena today...Moving on, & Hercules chomps down on Sampi, dealing damage, as Sampi counters with a flurry of slashes, all with such razor-sharp precision, sharp enough to easily get five hits on Hercules without too much effort. The last action was a carbon copy of the first, with Hercules detonating the ground below Sampi, & Sampi responding with a red beam of healing energy to cap off the round.

    With the round over, & while Hercules outdamaged Sampi, the red beams Sampi used meant that the HP Gap simply got wider...And with Sampi's Torment over, Lord Jesseus seems to be in the box seat to win this match. Can Lord Jesseus & Sampi wrap up the match with this advantage? Or will EspyOwner & Hercules somehow wrestle back the match? Find out next time on CAP ASB Tower Matches...
