    Ok, let's start this off with a strong attack! Itzamna lead us off with a Dig through the sand underneath your opponents, and then use Rapid Spin underground to make a sand cyclone! If they get trapped use Earth Power on both of them, but if not just hit Magic Shrimp, but if it traces Levitate use Ancientpower!

    Bella Luna
    start off with a Shadow Sneak on Magic Shrimp while Baltoy digs, and get further away when it's underground and use Rock Slide to try and keep them trapped during the cyclone! If anyone gets close to you use Lick, but if not finish with Will'oWisp on Onyx!

    Baltoy: Dig, Rapid Spin, Earth Power/Ancientpower if Plidowatt traces Levitate
    Nohface: Shadow Sneak, Rock Slide, Lick/Will"o"Wisp

    Magic Shrimp, start off with a Whirlpool on Baltoy to prevent it from going underground. If you can't charge up the Whirlpool in before Baltoy goes underground, use it on Nohface. Then hit whoever you trapped with either a Boiling water or a Thunderbolt (Boiling water on Baltoy, Thunderbolt on Nohface). Finish up the round by diving underwater and preparing a Whirlpool for next round whilst simultaneously avoiding the Earth power from Baltoy.

    Monozu, begin with a Hustled Crunch to Baltoy. Then, avoid the makeshift sand tomb at all costs, while at the same time getting close to Nohface. End the round with a Thunder Wave on Nohface (if you are not close to Nohface by the third action, use an un-Hustled Crunch on Baltoy).

    Piclowatt: Whirlpool~Boiling Water/Thunderbolt~Dive underwater+Prepare Whirlpool
    Deino: Crunch~Dodge Sand Tomb~Thunder Wave/Crunch

    Round 1 Begin!

    The four Pokemon stare each other down, waiting for someone to make the first move. Then suddenly, Bella Luna extends his shadow over to Magic Shrimp and pops out quickly, hitting the Plicowatt with a Shadow Sneak. Itzamna then begins to spin like a top, rapidly Digging into the soil. But he doesn't get all the way under before Magic Shrimp summons a Whirlpool from the ocean around the island, trapping the helpless Baltoy in the swirling vortex. Onyx decides to take advantage of his foe's helplessness, leaping into the Whirlpool and biting down hard with a Hustled Crunch on Itzamna.

    Magic Shrimp lets the Whirlpool go and it washes away, much to Itzamna's delight. The Baltoy begins to dig into the ground again, but before he gets anywhere he is blasted back by a stream of Boiling hot Water from Magic Shrimp, sending him crashing heavily onto the ground. While this is going on, Onyx is frantically scanning the ground for any signs of a sand tomb. Seeing none, he trots closer to Bella Luna in preparation for his next attack. Bella Luna is a bit confused by the lack a sand tomb also, but triggers a Rock Slide anyway, sending huge boulders crashing down upon the Deino.

    Seeing Itzamna preparing an attack, Magic Shrimp frantically dives underwater and begins preparing a Whirlpool for the next round. Water swirls around him, ready to go wherever the little shrimp directs it. Itzamna fires off the golden pulse of Earth Power anyway, the attack racing through the ground before harmlessly dissipating. Up close with Bella Luna off to the other side of the island, Onyx shoots a crackling Wave of Thunder at the Nohface, paralyzing him. Seeing Onyx up close to him, Bella Luna Licks him, making the Deino shudder a bit but nothing else.

    Round 1 End

    Magic Shrimp: Use your Whirlpool right away on Baltoy, and trap it for the whole round. If it happens to break out, use another Whirlpool to trap it again.

    Deino: Alternate between Hustled Crunches and Dark Pulse on Baltoy until it faints. If Baltoy faints before the third action, use the last Crunch on NohFace.

    Bella Luna levitate above the water where Magic Shrimp is cowering and him it with Meteor Mash and then use Psycho Shift to paralyze him! Finish off with a strong Faint Attack!

    Itzamna use Mud Slap on Onyx whenever possible so his hustled moves have bad accuracy!

    Bella Luna: Meteor Mash - Psycho Shift - Faint Attack
    Itzamna: Mud Slap- Mud Slap-Mud Slap

    Round 2 Begin!

    Magic Shrimp starts off the round fast, throwing his prepared Whirlpool towards Itzamna. The Baltoy gets trapped in the cyclone of water, frantically searching for mud that it could use to mount an assault. Unfortunately it doesn't realize that there's no mud inside a Whirlpool. Seeing a perfect opening, Onyx jumps into the Whirlpool and bites down on Itzamna with Crunch. Her fangs find a weak point in the Baltoy's skin, dropping its Defense. She pushes off the Baltoy easily, leaping out of the Whirlpool to safety. Off to the side, Bella Luna decides she's had enough of her teammate being abused. She hovers over the water towards the concentrating Magic Shrimp, and strikes it with a glowing Meteor Mash. This rattles Magic Shrimp a little, but doesn't break his concentration.

    With Magic Shrimp still concentrating on his Whirlpool and Itzamna unable to find any mud, Onyx decides to take advantage of the situation once more. He leaps up and spews a Pulse of Darkness into the Whirlpool, striking Itzamna dead-on. Attempting to stop the Whirlpool once more, Bella Luna begins to concentrate on her paralysis, Psycho Shifting it into an orb which it sends at the helpless Magic Shrimp. The orb expands on contact, inflicting the little fish with 25% paralysis.

    Despite Paralysis, Magic Shrimp manages to stay concentrated on his Whirlpool , with Itzamna trying to eat its berry in the midst of the swirling Whirlpool and failing. Onyx decides to end the annoying little Baltoy once and for all, leaping into the Whirlpool one more time and delivering another Crunch to Itzamna's face. The Baltoy gives out a groan and collapses to the ground, knocked out. Magic Shrimp finally lets go of the Whirlpool and him and the water both fall to the ground, exhausted. Enraged by the loss of her teammate, Bella Luna fades into the shadows and suddenly pops out, striking Magic Shrimp dead-on with a Faint Attack.

    Itzamna is unable to battle!

    Wow, Whirlpool is horrible to play against.

    Ok Bella Luna we're screwed, let's try and get a KO counter out of this. Onyx isn't meant for the ocean, so keep hovering above the water so he can't effectively chase you! Use Faint Attack to hit Magic Shrimp, and then follow up with a Lick, and then use Will'O'Wisp on Onyx!

    Faint Attack - Lick - Will'O'Wisp

    Magic Shrimp, you've got to do only one thing. Make sure that Monozu gets that KO counter; you're already going to evolve at the end of the battle :)

    Magic Shrimp, use Scald, then Thunder Bolt, then finish with by taking the burn for Monozu, which you should be able to do thanks to your far superior speed.

    Monozu, use Dark Pulse, followed by a dragon Rage, then finish with another Dark Pulse. Some flinches sure would be nice.

    Round 3 Begin!

    Apparently Onyx has some sort of aggressive streak, as he starts off this round on the offensive, firing a Pulse of Darkness out of his mouth that nails Bella Luna dead-on. Magic Shrimp decides to go on the attack also, instead of simply controlling a Whirlpool for an entire round on end. He fires off a burst of Scalding water at the poor Nohface, with the water proving hot enough to burn the Ghost-type. However, the Nohface quickly chomps (how does a Nohface eat anyway?) down on his Rawst Berry, healing his status. After all this, Bella Luna has had enough punishment. Floating over to Magic Shrimp, the Nohface seemingly vanishes, only to appear and slam into Magic Shrimp with a Faint Attack.

    Seeking to aid its teammate from long range, Onyx fires a stream of blue flames over the water, the Dragon Rage hitting Bella Luna directly. Magic Shrimp decides to help out again, charging up some electricity in his body...which immediately grinds to a complete halt as his body suddenly locks up, fully paralyzed. Seizing the opportunity, Bella Luna dives down and Licks Magic Shrimp.

    Onyx spits yet another Pulse of Darkness from his mouth, sick of the little Ghost-type. When Magic Shrimp sees a Will-O-Wisp forming in front of Bella Luna, he quickly dashes in front of his ally and takes the burn.

    alright magic shrimp, use a Thunderbolt first thing on Nohface for damage. Then use a Scald on it. Finish with another Thunderbolt. Also, shouldn't the paralysis be at 20% due to decay?

    Monozu, use Dark Pulse, Hustled Crunch, and another Dark Pulse on Nohface. Try to get the KO, lets see if we can finish this this round!

    Ok Bella Luna let's try this! Since you're over the water when he tries to Crunch you dodge with Shadow Sneak and try to hit him closer to Magic Shrimp to diffuse the Thunderbolt! Then double Faint Attack Magic Shrimp!

    Round 5 Begin!

    Onyx appears to enjoy causing pain. Wonder if he has some kind of disorder, can he even see? He starts off the round the exact same way as last time (maybe a memory disorder too), blasting another Pulse of Darkness at Bella Luna, who is frantically looking around for a pair of sharp fangs...that don't come. Magic Shrimp decides to get in on the act, charging up a Thunderbolt and blasting it into the helpless Nohface, who's still looking around for a Crunch. Bella Luna does absolutely nothing, as the attack she's prepared for never comes.

    Now of all times, Onyx uses the very attack that was the motivation for Bella Luna to be completely useless last round. He leaps over the water, Crunching down on Bella Luna and falling into the water. Magic Shrimp then decides to make use of its other STAB, firing a burst of Scalding water at the Nohface. Such a sitting duck, isn't it? Bella Luna then drifts over to the shore and seems to disappear, reappearing to smash into the Krilowatt in a Faint Attack.

    Seemingly forgotten and floating in the water alone, Onyx decides to leave his mark. He shoots one more Dark Pulse. Everything seems to slow down as the dark blob flies through the air...then it hits Bella Luna. The Noface shudders once, twice, then falls to the ground, knocked out.

    Bella Luna is unable to battle!

    Round 5 End

    Kaxtar, Onyx and Magic Shrimp win!
