    The ASB Tournament Arena

    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 center). Surrounding the dirt is a moat filled with water. The moat is about fifteen feet wide and creates a perimeter around the dirt arena. The arena itself is eighty feet wide, one hundred feet 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 sixty feet). 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.

Resultingly it feels it can weather every strike, and will not dodge an attack even if ordered to. Only when a OHKO move is issued by the opponent does sense return, and the Pokemon acts normally. Additionally even with their extra skill, the power and exhaustion involved in using OHKO moves prevents them from being benefitted by No Guard, they will have their normal accuracy.

    Take note that I'll have limited access over the next couple of weeks, so go easy on me concerning time.

    And we’re here, watching what is certain to be one of the most awesome matches ever!

    On one side, Deck Knight! You know who he is! Creator of ASB! The one with a Smoochum avatar! More badges than you have…noses.

    On the other, Nightmare Jigglypuff! Less well-known, but no less formidable, a fellow aspiring water-type gym leader alongside myself!

    Floradit: Yeah that's right! These people are Deck and NJigglypuff!

    DA: no they're other people

    a;oif;waigha;woihga;

    I messed up like ten times here

    that's what you get for reffing at school

    but that's all in the past

    I promise I didn't screw up r2

    probably

    Let the music play!

    Round 1: Boring Earthquakes

    Capers starts things off with a lightning-fast Earthquake, shaking the ground violently and causing jagged pieces of it to dig into Van Pig’s flesh. Ow. Van Pig doesn’t seem too concerned, however, he just Yawns nonchalantly, but the contagiousness of it all makes Capers drowsy! Oh crap.

    Struggling to keep his eyes open, Capers draws water from the moat around the arena and uses it to deliver a powerful Aqua Tail at Van Pig, sending him flying meters, but he recovers and forms a Defense Curl raising his defense to protect him against future aggression.

    Capers isn’t one to be dissuaded from pork by a simple defensive stance, and fires off another Earthquake. Luckily this arena is indestructible, I’m not sure the spectators can even feel the tremors! Somehow. Anyway, Van Pig takes advantage of his position to fire off a suped-up Rollout, spinning towards Capers like a cannonball (that’s spinning) (everything’s better with spinning) and knocking him out of the air! Who says pigs can’t fly?

    Round 2: On The Pig-Burnt Precipice of Earthquake

    Capers, eyes heavy, slams Van Pig with an Earthquake, the powerful attack slamming into Van Pig, strong as ever despite Capers' growing fatigue. Van Pig, panting heavily, summons his flagging strength into a deadly Endeavor. Reeling from the hit, Capers hisses at him...and drops to the ground, asleep.

    Van Pig grins in relief at his temporarily incapacitated foe, and Flame Charges her, raising his speed!

    It seems to do damage, so he does it again.

    Flame Charging again, I mean.

    Which raises his speed.

    Again.

    Roar will do nothing to save my opponent, thanks to its negative priority. For the sake of saving time, I'll post my next round's actions as well.

    All on the way to a 2-0 flogging in 5 Rounds.

    Round 3: Awaken, A-quakin'

    Van Pig summons more heat from within to Flame Charge Capers once more, raising his speed...

    But the searing tackle seems to have woken Capers up, and she KO's him with an Earthquake.

    Round 4: Ground-type Grounded and Ground'd

    Flipping through the air, Capers swoops down and strikes Progressive with Acrobatics, but Progressive takes the blow unflinchingly and responds with a Retaliate, infusing the blow with memories of teammates lost.

    Capers u-turns back and slams Progressive with more impressive Acrobatics. Gritting his teeth, Progressive weathers the blow, and throws a rock with deadly accuracy at his opponent's retreating back, Smacking Capers Down and rendering him susceptible to Ground-type moves!

    Suddenly unable to take to the air, Capers nonetheless makes an impressive leap and uses yet more Acrobatics to yield another powerful, if not quite as much as before, blow on Progressive. The little pokemon stumbles back but triggers an enormous Earthquake, which strikes the newly venerable pokemon just as it touches the ground again!

    NOTE: I made Acrobatics work like Gliscor was encumbered, as it doesn't seem like it could use it at full strength when it was, y'know, flying.
