    Okay Stortamus! About time you got a KO Counter!

    Anyways, Start by Yawning, then Curse up, & finish with Earthquake, as not even hiding in the lake would be enough for Sunnygo to dodge the Earthquake...I Think...

    Summary of Actions:
    Yawn > Curse > Earthquake

    Hmph. This match will be a piece of cake. Sunnygo, dive under the water to avoid the Yawn (using Surf if possible), then fire off a Ice Beam. Finish it up with an Surf.

    Dive under the water and use Surf (?) - Ice Beam - Surf

    ...AAAAAAAnd welcome back to todays Incredible NYX FIX!

    Today's competitors are both down one teammate and looking to make it two for their opponents!The actions already heating up, so lets cut my chitchat and leap right in alongside them!

    And it's SHOW TIME!!

    Sunnygo the Corsola leads us off! She smiles a beautiful smile as she totters towards the pond and leaps in! She's now safely(?) in its confines!
    Stortamus responds gruffly by issuing a loud Yawn!! He opens his Big Hippo Eyes to find himself quite alone. His opponent went swimming without him.. :[

    Sunnygo pokes that adorable corable head of hers up from the pond surface and giggles as she launches forth a powerful Ice Beam!
    Stortamus never was very good at understanding girls in High School, and begins to Curse under his breath! His Attack and Defense rise, but his Speed lowers!

    Sunnygo next decides to "hit the tubes" as the kids say nowadays and begins to ride a mighty wave she summons forth, Surfing it directly towards Stortamus! Its another Direct hit! Stortamus is beginning to feel all that water soak into his dry skin!
    Stortamus shakes it off! He's really shaki-OH OH OH! HEs just caused a massive Earthquake! It a powerful blow to adorable Sunnygo!

    and let's check up on our Round-End totals, shall we?

    Stay in the water and keep the offensive pressure up, Sunnygo. Fire off a Confuse Ray, then an Ice Beam, and finish it with another Surf.

    Ehh...No point trying to dodge Confuse Ray, our speed isn't going to cut it...Just Curse again, then deliver 2 Earthquakes in succession.

    Curse > Earthquake > Earthquake

    And welcome to another very exciting match of Bynine v. Its_A_Random, here on the Nyx Fix! Things are beginning to reach a critical point as both Pokemon attempt to gain ground without losing any!

    And the macth gets underway as Sunnygo returns to the water after last round's Surf attacks and begins to glow...unleashing a powerful Confuse Ray!It glimmers into Stortamus's eyes and inflicts some Intense Confusion!
    Stortamus grunts against the confusion and curses under his breath again! He boosts even farther!
    Sunnygo pokes her little pink head above the water, and gasps at what she hears from Stortamus! How foul! She gets mad and fires off an Ice Beam to shut him up! and its a solid hit!
    Stortamus shakes off that blow, and in doing so SLAMS his head into a nearby rock! Ouch,that's gonna hurt!
    Sunnygo decides to take advantage of this delay and fires off another Surf attack, sliding along the ground to clock Stortamus dead on!OUCH, its a critical hit! Stortamus won't be able to make up that much ground,for sure!
    Stortamus is looking weary, and he tries to remember..Ear...Heart?....Quail?...EarQuick?....EARTHQUAKE! He fires off his Earthquake, which manages to hit full on due to Sunnygo no longer being in the water because of Surf!

    And that's the end of that round!
    Let's look at how our competitors are holding up after that electrifying round!

    Okay Stortamus, that was rather costly, but start off by Slacking Off twice, then finish off with an Earthquake.

    Quick, Sunnygo, KO it with a Surf attack before it can be a slacker. Then get in the water and Recover your health. Their last Pokemon's going down too.

    Surf - Get in water - Recover

    Sunnygo leads off the match by summoning up another wave of water and sending it crashing over poor Stortamus..........
    And KOing him!

    Sunnygo gets a KO counter!

    That's the end of that round! Its_A_Random is down to one pokemon, so he must send out Capers the Gligar!

    Alright Capers, start with a Swords Dance, then deliver a powerful Earthquake which should hit SunnyGo easily despite the water, & finish off by evading the Ice Beam; Our superior Speed, coupled the fact that Sandstorm is active & that we have Sand Veil should mean we should easily dodge the Ice Beam without any trouble.

    Summary of Actions:
    Swords Dance > Earthquake > Evade the Ice Beam

    Time for some Sand Veil hax...

    And welcome back to another rousing sound of the Nyx Fix! Bynine and Its_A_Random are both down to their last pokemon!
    I'm just itching to get into the actions, so let's quickly recap and see what happens!

    And the match gets underway with Capers dancing around, waving his swordlike pincers.
    Sunnygo responds to this swaying marvel by leaping into the pond!
    Capers leaps into action by slamming the ground,causing a mighty earthquake! The water absorbs the impact a bit, and the water begins to get choppy due to the seismic activity!
    Sunngo responds by focusing his powers on regrowing his lost body parts, and recovers his health!
    Capers waits, anticipating the attack he knows is coming!
    Sunnygo fires forth a frosty ice beam,which Capers quickly glides slightly to the left and dodges completely! Making Han Solo proud!

    The round ends with the stats looking like this:

    NOTE: Bynine, your Corsola does not know Surf. I am an idiot for not noticing. And therefore I am disgruntled. Do not attempt that command again please.

    This match is coming to an end soon, but who can say for who?
    Let's find out!
    Its_A_Random, you're up next!

    Bynine ordered Recover, not Surf (And SunnyGo doesn't have Surf)...

    Anyways, let's continue our tirade Capers. Use Swords Dance, then use Earthquake Twice. If SunnyGo uses either Ice Beam or Scald, Use Quick Attack to dodge it & do what you were going to do for the next action.

    Summary of Actions:
    Swords Dance > Earthquake > Earthquake
    Sub appropriate action for Evasive Quick Attack if SunnyGo uses either Scald or Ice Beam & do what Capers was initially going to do for that action as the next action.

    Ah dicks, I meant Scald for those attacks. Only slightly lower BP so I doubt it would've mattered in the long run, but, sorry. Okay, Sunnygo, use Confuse Ray so his boosted attacks will smack himself, then use Ice Beam, and finish it with a Scald.

    Confuse Ray - Ice Beam - Scald

    And welcome to another pulse-pounding, heart thumping round of The Nyx Fix! Today's match between Random and Bynine has been heated and furious on both sides, but its only a matter of time before one of these contenders falls! Who will it be? Only one way to know for sure!

    The match gets underway with Capers the Gligar doing his little swords dance, here and there, cha cha cha! Sunnygo responds by glimmering off a intense Confuse Ray! It hits the nible little bat-scorpion and gives him severe confusion!
    Capers preps himself to dodge the expected Ice Beam with his quick attack! The Ice Beam comes and Capers attempts to dart away..and slams himself into a rock in his confusion! Sunnygo doesn't have much better luck,however, as her Ice Beam hits the spot where Capers was standing seconds before..right? Blast! She can't see anything through this Veil of Sand!
    Capers stumbles around, preparing to slam down and create an Earthquake, which he does! It strikes again, creating a powerful tremor which jostles and jolts poor Sunnygo! Once again the water absorbs some of the impact, but its still a harsh blow! Sunnygo responds by firing off an b urst of steamy scalding water straight at the sand-shrouded Capers. It strikes him dead on! That's gotta hurt the poor Ground type!

    ....And thats the end of the round!Let's look at the standings!

    Eep! Okay, Sunnygo, Recover once more (we've reached our limit of recoveries..), then ride up on a Scalding wave, and when you've hit him, Ice Beam to the face!

    Recover - Scald - Ice Beam

    Bynine, all I have to say is gg. Capers, deliver an Earthquake, & dodge the remaining two moves with Quick Attack. If my calculations are correct, SunnyGo will be knocked out this round as it will have 0 energy left after those three actions.

    Summary of actions:
    Earthquake > Evasive Quick Attack > Evasive Quick Attack

    Let's finish this.

    This looks to be the last round, but who can know for sure? Let's tune in to the action to find out!

    Capers starts us off with a powerful Earthquake! It rumbles the ground and shakes-n-quakes the arena and cute lil' Sunnygo! It deals a massive amount of damage, But Sunnygo is swimming strong in that pond! Sunnygo responds by glowing white and recovering some last health again!(Last Time!)
    Gligar sets his little feet and tenses his muscles to dodge the attack with his quickness!
    Sunnygo fires off a round of Scalding water, which narrowly misses the quick little flier! Its because he's lost in that Veil of Sand!
    Gligar sets his feet again, and looks poised to dodge yet another attack!
    Sunnygo fires of a powerful Ice Beam, which HITS the little bat! It deals great damage!
    Sunnygo looks tired as she swims to the end of the pond..her energy expended. Bynine recalls her to her pokeball as she faints from Exhaustion.
    "You were so cute out there.. great job lil' one."
    Capers the Gligar dances around with Random, and they sing a happy little victory tune.
    The trainers walk into the middle of the ring and share in a handshake, their battle complete.
    That's when I run over mumbling about rewards or somethin'.

    Its_A_Random:

    • Recieves 2 TC.
    • Stortamus,Capers, and Sleast recieve 1 MC,EC,and DC each.
    • Stortamus and Capers each get 1 KO counter.

    Bynine:

    • Recieves 2 TC.
    • Limebaka and Sunnygo each get 1 MC,EC, and DC each. (No EC for Sunny)
    • Limebaka gets 1 KO counter.
    • Sunnygo gets 1 KO counter.

    NyxNocturne
    I'll claim 3 Ref Tokens because Random used 3 pokemon.(I guess I'll work it that way.)

    Congratulations,Gents. Please let me know how I did(constructive criticism is appreciated!) It was nice reffing this,guys :]

    Aye, gg Bynine, you put up a good fight, but there is one thing you need to learn: You need to know when to chill. It is the only action where you can restore your energy, & if you know when to chill, you would've stood a chance. Anyways, to beat two of my three Pokemon despite having 2 Pokemon is a good feat, & you shouldn't be ashamed of yourself, you did a great job. What would you say to a rematch not too far in the distant future?

    NyxNocturne, you did a good job as a first time ref, the frequency of your updates was good, just a little more practice & you'll do just fine. As far as my performance is concerned, it would be rather average, only winning 1-0, but with my type disadvantage, it was quite reasonable. Now to go to the prize thread & see what I can do...

    Good game, It's A Random. Maybe I should have Chilled instead of recovered. Ahh, well..

    I think you did a good job, Nyx! Just work on the little things (check movepools, make Leech Seed work, etc.) and you'll do great.

    Also, didn't Sunnygo get a KO token for taking out that Stortamus?
