    Oceans. They dominate approximately 75% of the planet, 50% of species in the world, and about 17% of the Pokemon. Water pairs up with 16 of the seventeen types, and every addition to the Pokedex has discovered at least 14 more water types. Water is truly the king of the blue planet.

    Of course, water does have a few issues. Current can flow rather easily through the ions, frying the life inside of it. Grass grows off of water, and has developed the attributes to ensure a supply. But to go against the tide is to face the most unstoppable force on the Earth.

    Arena:
    Gym (open)

    The first thing you notice about the Water Gym is the size. It is a giant dome of ice, completely out of place in the warm Pumello Island, which looks almost like a snow globe because of the fog inside, near the top of the roof, and the rim of completely opaque ice around the bottom 10 metres, which stops you seeing in. You walk around a bit and discover a large entrance which burrows in to the ice, angled downwards in the the ice, as if you will end up some distance below ground when you get to wherever the path actually leads. The path is the shape of a semi-circle, roughly 10 metres across, with rough ice and snow on the bottom clearly to enable trainers to walk with all of their Pokemon beside them, so you release yours out of their Pokeballs and travel down to whatever depths the path will take you.

    After some time, the originally opaque tunnel starts to clear out, and you suddenly realise that you are underwater, protected from the sea above you by the completely transparent ice of the semicircular path, which nonetheless allows you to see out in to the sea. It is full of strange plants, rising hills and falling crevasses, but even more importantly it is full of water-type Pokemon of every description - you see a school of Goldeen swim overhead, barely noticing you and all of your Pokemon, before a large Dewgong distracts your attention by swimming in the other way. You even see what appears to be a Phione, one of the famous legendary Pokemon, as you come up to what you now realise is the surface of the water. You had been following the water-type Pokemon so closely you hadn't noticed the small incline that you had started to ascend with the path. Eventually, you rise out of the water onto a large area of ice to hear a sudden increase of noise, which surprises you after the silence of the tunnel. However, you keep moving along the path, which now rises a foot above the ice partially covering the pool you were just in, away from the edge of the plateau and towards the center of the area, whatever might lie there. It takes some time, but eventually the noise of the sea creatures dies down as you walk away and you suddenly notice a large increase in temperature created by geysers rising out of the ice on either side of the path, which you and your Pokemon welcome after walking through the cold for so long. It keeps you walking, and finally you think you see something different ahead, which clearly signals the end of the road; perhaps because of the great grandeur of the area, compared to the small path through bleak landscape you have been walking through most recently. Anyway, as it comes in to view you see that it is a waterfall covered completely in mist and very concentrated rain, coming off the back of a giant cliff, dozens of metres high. In front of the cliff, near the base of the waterfall, there is a small pool of water, seemingly too small to contain the colossal amounts of water falling in from the Waterfall draining through a short river in to it, with two groups of three small pedestals of ice sticking out of the water, facing each other. Around the pool, with the exception of a clear area behind each group of three, are more geysers, spouting hot water many metres in to the air, where it formed steam and kept rising. It is near this pool that the path ends, falling back down the ground level, so you walk down over the end and stand in the clear section opposite the waterfall, looking around for a gym leader. You are just worrying that the long, but admittedly nicely scenic, route in here might have been for naught when the waterfall suddenly parts and an old man rides out from beneath it on a Lapras.

    Welcome, says the trainer. I am Athenodoros, leader of the Water Gym of Pumello Island. He rides out further and then jumps down on to the clear area on the other side, which is a small island in the middle of the pool, next to where the short river from the waterfall empties in to it. In this gym we pay homage to the diversity and power of water and Water-type Pokemon. You see, in this little arena alone we have steam, water and ice interacting and coming together to create a working arena, as it does all over the gym. Here, the rain is created by the steam from the geysers you can see around us rising up and being cooled by the ice which forms the roof, and the Pokemon created and maintain all of this. In this gym, you will be challenged to show the diversity and strength of Water-type Pokemon, using only the materials which you would find in such an arid environment as ice can create, and against all the powers of the water type Pokemon I have at my disposal. We will battle three times: twice in doubles matches and once in a singles match, in the case of a tiebreaker being needed. However, the way in which you will show diversity and variety is that for each battle you must select a type, and any Pokemon you use in that battle must share that type. But now, I have spoken enough. Nominate your first type, and we shall begin our first battle!

    After such a long walk with your Pokemon, you are ready for this battle. You have prepared for a long time, and even with the rules imposed by the gym you feel ready. Send out your first Pokemon!

    -Everyone brings 6
    -Default weather is Rain (i.e. Sunny Day and friends are fine, but after 5 rounds it goes back to rain)
    -Best of Three, alternating sending out first and then blind send out - 2v2 Doubles + 2v2 Doubles + 1v1 Singles (If necessary)
    -All Pokemon on each side must share a type in each battle, and can't be used in more than one battle

    Battle Conditions: This gym requires its challengers to show the variety and strategy of the water-type. This means there will be three battles: two 2v2 doubles and a tiebreaker singles match if need be. However, there is a catch: in each battle, the Pokemon on each side must share one type, chosen by the trainer. All three of these battles will take place in the central gym area, and as the ultimate test for the diversity of a trainer's skills there will be no limits to the battle aside from those dictated by the arena.


    -Everyone brings 6
    -Best of Three, alternating sending out first and then blind send out - 2v2 Doubles + 2v2 Doubles + 1v1 Singles (If necessary)
    -All Pokemon on each side must share a type in each battle, and can't be used in more than one battle

    Electivire [Short Fuse] (M)
    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.
    Nature: Mild (+SpAtk -Def)

    Abilities:
    Ability 1: Motor Drive (Innate) - This Pokemon nullifies any electrical attack damage and converts the energy from any electrical attack (inc. Thunder Wave) into an energy source that allows it to boost its speed by one (1) level. A boost gained this way by an opponent's attack will be maintained at the end of each round. Self-targeted attacks do not maintain boosts..
    Ability 2: Vital Spirit (DW) (Innate) - This Pokemon has a high vitality and alertness making it immune to sleep induced by other Pokemon. Its normal state of sleeplessness makes it take 1 less damage/action from Ghost Curse. If it is put to sleep by a Pokemon with Mold Breaker it will wake up the next action.

    [​IMG]
    Rotom [Pulse] (N/A)
    Nature: Modest (+Sp.Atk -Atk)
    Type:
    Grass/Electric: Grass STAB; immunity to Leech Seed and Worry Seed. 50% reduction in status effect chance of oncoming "powder" attacks. More mobile in areas with strong natural light sources. Superior senses in tall grass and forest areas. Able to use Wrap and Bind without losing focus. 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 the Ground moves Bulldoze, Earthquake, Fissure, and Magnitude. Earth Power will have three (3) less Base Attack Power. Dig and Dive can strike a Levitating Pokemon if their user is over Size Class 4, has Levitate, is 3.5m or larger, or is a Flying-type. Otherwise Dig and Dive will miss. 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.

    I have a very special Starmie. She is both Timid and Modest.

    But she's actually Timid. Fixed now.

    Round One: High Voltage

    Water, Steam, Ice. The blood of the earth circulates through the dome and falls back down into the sea in a heavy torrential rain. A current has begun to flow, and the gym goes live as suddenly electricity and water begin to surge through together, creating a different- and deadlier- dynamic. The challenger capitalizes upon this by sending out two electric types- a Rotom and an Electrivire- both near the maximum possible strength of their species.

    The ref is slowly realizing that one badge may be the most he's ever going to get.

    The gym leader replies with a Starmie and a Cloyster. While the Cloyster appears only average in power, the Starmie makes the ref resume crying in the corner about the general weakness of his team. This may become a common theme in this battle.

    The gym leader watches as a massive buildup of electricity glows on the challenger's side of the field, and orders his Pokemon to adopt defensive stances. Cloyster withdraws deep into her thick shell, while Starmie creates a thin but strong telekenetic shield. But what comes first isn't the lightning. Electrivire begins to race across the arena and jumps into the air. As the leader tries to figure out what's going on, Electrivire slams his fist down... right next to Starmie. Jumping into blinding light isn't good. And then things go to hell. A gigantic sphere of electricity appears on the walls of the dome as a fantastic level of electricial energy forms an orb that quickly begins to spark, with lightning bolts flying into Starmie's shield. For almost a full minute, incredible lightning bolts flash throughout the air, as if the battle had been transported straight into the middle of a thunderstorm. And then it gradually began to stop as Electrivire withdrew and Cloyster came out of her shell. Starmie stands back up, clearly exhausted from maintaining the barrier, but ready to fight on.

    As if that would stop it. Starmie begins to spin, gathering up huge tides of water around the arena and forming up a gem in front of its own. Then it shoots a blast of freezing air into the gym, causing it to shatter into icy fragments that fly into the rain and freeze it, creating a massive gale of ice that blasts across the entire field, turning the entire arena white for a moment as the water freezes and occasionally shatters due to the freezing water's electrical energy. It's hard to tell, but Cloyster appears to be tossing more ice into the wind, blinding both of the challenger's Pokemon and easily countering the electrical force that had just been launched. By the time that the ice clears, Rotom is injured and Electrivire stands before Starmie where he had, completely frozen in a block of ice due to his proximity to the origin.

    Rotom begins to float back into the air and glow as more electricity is formed inside of his body, ready to be unleashed. Cloyster and Starmie create new shields, confident that Electrivire cannot break them. So as an increasing stream of energy batters Starmie, all it can do is bounce off the shield. While Rotom tries its hardest, it ends in little more than a blind expression of tiring rage that is easily controlled by caution and a level head.

    Starmie: Protect: 30 energy, protected
    Cloyster: Protect: 7 energy, Protected

    "Well shit on a stick. And ftr, that's sitting at a 0.1125% chance of happening. Fucking BS."

    Rotom-Mow: Cooldown (Fuck all) ~ Thunder (Cloyster) ~ Thunderbolt (Cloyster)
    IF Cloyster uses Damaging Evasive move AND doesn't hold AND outspeeds you, THEN Thundershock + Thunderbolt
    IF Cloyster uses Damaging Evasive move AND holds, THEN redirect to Starmie

    Electivire: Thunder (Cloyster) ~ Thunder (Cloyster) ~ Thunder (Cloyster)
    IF Protect, AND Cloyster is alive, THEN Feint (Cloyster)
    IF Cloyster is enduring AND isn't protected AND isn't under the effect of Toxic, THEN Toxic (Cloyster)

    IF KO (HAHAHAHA...), THEN redirect.



    Feint (Cloyster) as I've been told also hits through passed protect on IRC. If not, reorder requested.

    This seems entirely fair. At least now I might at least win one. Might. Assuming I don't miss any other big moves.

    Cloyster: Icicle Spear (Mowtom) ~ Evasive Teleport ~ Dive (Electivire)
    IF you get fully paralysed, move actions along
    IF you get paralysed AND you would otherwise use Dive, use Protect

    Starmie: Ice Beam (Mowtom) ~ Icy Wind ~ Ice Beam (Mowtom)
    IF Mowtom faints, Starmie uses Chill from then on

    Round Two: Tides of Fortune

    The rain continues to fall.

    Electricity continues to jolt through the water as the match wears on beneath the heavy rain. As the trainers are increasingly drenched, the scene increasingly feels like the entire arena is below the surface. It is no wonder that water-types are at home here.

    After a brief respite, Athenodoros continues on the offensive. Starmie rolls out to the side, gathering a small freezing crystal in front of its gem before blasting out another blast of ice that races across the field. This time, the beam is more percies but less powerful, and only Rotom is struck by the pulse. Electrivire goes on the offense himself, and the arena glows for a moment before a massive shot of thunder zaps down from the sky and electrifies Cloyster. Of course, the shellfish is not easily defeated and begins to throw out a huge barrage of icicles that strike Rotom, wearing the motor down to a point near defeat.

    Cloyster races down into the sea and then shoots straight up, seeming to dissapear into the air as she flies. Starmie comes out of its roll and begins to spin rapidly, continuing to emit its earlier beam. The shot becomes distorted, and simply makes the air really cold. Cloyster and Starmie are used to the ice in the gym, but Electrivire becomes slower due to having his blood chilled, and Rotom can't take any more ice and simply collapses onto the ground. Electrivire is unmoved and simply calls upon another blast of electricity from that atmosphere that surges through the air and strikes something in the water, causing Closyter to rush out of her hiding place in pain.

    Starmie begins to relax and observe the situation. The gym leader has the numerical advantage, but the challenger continues to fight. Cloyster recedes down into the depths as another flash of lightning fills the air, shooting deeper and deeper into the water as Cloyster continues to dive, narrowly outracing the voltage to the bottom with her head start. Then she turns around and races straight into it, watching as the voltage is rebuffed due to the small amount lost in the water and the thickness of her shell as she slams into the sole Pokemon on the challenger's side, with the rain adding extra force to her assualt.

    And somehow I just know that this will backfire. Whatever, I don't know how.

    All actions at Electivire

    Cloyster: Icicle Spear ~ Rock Blast ~ Icicle Spear
    IF he uses a damaging Electric-type move AND it is in a Combo AND at you THEN Dive and stay underwater, pushing actions along
    IF he uses Thunder AND it's at you AND you outspeed AND this sub hasn't activated before THEN use Torment

    Starmie: Hydro Pump ~ Chill ~ Blizzard
    IF he uses Taunt AND it's at you THEN use Magic Coat ~ Chill
    IF he uses a damaging Electric-type move AND it is in a Combo AND at you THEN use Dive and stay ~ Come up ~ Chill

    "Me? Quit? I don't think so."

    Electivire: Teleport (Evasive) ~ Taunt (Starmie) ~ Taunt (Starmie)

    If my reading of Starmie's substitute is correct, Starmie will use Hydro Pump ~ Magic Coat ~ Magic Coat. If not (The subs are somewhat oddly worded), let me know :-)

    Round Three: Overconfidence

    The rain continues to fall.

    The gym leader is rather confident in his win, but the challenger still holds the belief that he can pull the round, despite the crushing hand of luck in the first round of the battle. Electrivire promptly takes a play from Cloyster's book, and dissapears into thin air, unable to be seen. Unfortuntately, Starmie and Cloyster don't have quite the firepower that Electrivire did, and a massive shot of water that races through the air merely hits the wall, joining a barrage of ice before Electrivire appears back in exactly the same place as he started.

    Confident enough to press his advantage, Electrivire begins to torment Starmie in the Pokemon language about some issue or another. Unfortunately, I am unable to translate but you can bet it was probably offensive, because Starmie refuses to hear it and creates a barrier in the rain that makes Electrivire stare into his own reflection, horribly offended by whatever the replica is saying and enraged to smash it to pieces. Electrivire rushes forwards, shatters the water and is promptly hit by a slew of boulders that seem to come from nowhere, knocking it back over.

    Starmie is scared of the electric type, and panics in its exhaustian as it tries to resummon the mirror, but collapses from the effort as the Electrivire huffs in anger at his inability to score a kill. Of course, Cloyster is perfectly content with capitalizing on the moment, and shoots out a slew of icicles from raindrops in the air that greatly injure the challenger's Pokemon.

    Electrivire: Teleport: 7 energy, dodges things like the fucking Matrix

    Electrivire: Taunt Starmie: 10 energy, Electrivire taunted due to Magic Coat

    I'm pretty sure that subs aren't recursive by default. Starmie should have used Chill.

    And I'm quite sure that if he can't order a move then he can't trigger a sub. It's like the way Taunt + Sucker Punch is supposed to be guaranteed. Again, Chill.

    Despite your oddly worded subs, the subs ARE recursive by default. Your sub says "If Taunt, THEN replace the next 2 actions with Magic Coat ~ Chill". If activated twice, then it will start from the beginning of the string of issued replacements.

    In addition, the use of the move Taunt was legal, if impossible. Hence, your substitute activated.

    I also requested reordering for the last round if those substitutions were deemed unusable, since I talked to Rediamond before the reffing was completed. So yeah, if those need to be changed I probably will want to reorder that round =\

    What dogfish said. I was iffy on ordering into Taunt, but I can't see how it's any different than ordering nonattacking moves in doubles when an opponent uses Taunt, and one of the moves you would have used to kill it and block the taunt misses.

    Now, it he had been taunted at the start of the round, it would've been illegal.

    Round Three: World of Ice

    Due to unfortunate luck, the challenger is in dire straights as his injured Electrivire faces a relatively healthy Cloyster to finish the first match. Electrivire decides to dig into the floor of the arena, as much as there is one, to delay the devestation and potentially outmanuever the Cloyster. In the meantime, Tethys is content to sit around, stirring up a little water with a cool current while she waits. When Electrivire finally leaps out of the ground, a massive wave of water rises up to meet him. The wave begins to freeze into ice in midair, creating a tremendous amount of frozen water that crashes down upon the poor electric type, who struggles to his feet as a fast blast of freezing air knocks him down for the count.

    Athenodoros wins the first matchup 1-0, putting him at a 1-0 advantage!

    statsitically speaking (open)
    ]Dig: [(8-1)] 7 damage, 10 energy (5531 no crit)
    Avalanche: [(12+3+3)] 18 damage, 7 energy (9795 no crit)
    Ice Shard:[(4+3+3+3)] 13 damage, 2 energy, KO (152 Overkill crit)



    Athenodoros advances two new Pokemon with their items, dogfish44 advances two Pokemon that share a typing with items and orders, Athenodoros orders.

    Sorry about this. I unexpectedly didn't have any internets for three days, but I'm going to have to put actions up tomorrow because I've hardly slept in a week, including nights straight on the ground for the last few days. I should only be about 12 hours. Hope that's fine by you both.

    EDIT: I'll use Slowking and Krilowatt. They can each have an Expert Belt.

    "So it continues. Krilowatt @ Magnet + Cyclohm @ Expert Belt. let's go!"

    Cyclohm: Thunder (Slowking) ~ Thunderbolt (Slowking) ~ Thunder (Slowking)

    Krilowatt: Thunder (Slowking) ~ Thunderbolt (Slowking) ~ Thunder (Slowking)

    Both: IF Target KOed, Redirect to Krill
    Both: IF Slowking used Protective/Evasive move, Redirect to Krill
    Both: IF Slowking Enduring AND at 1 HP, Redirect to Krill

    Hopefully this should give us enough of a start

    Slowking: Bide ~ Bide ~ Unleash Bide
    IF
    you get fully paralysed A2 AND that would interrupt Bide for some reason, use Ice Beam (Cyclohm) A3

    Krillowatt: Ice Beam (Cyclohm) ~ Imprison {Thunder, Thunderbolt, Earthquake} (Cyclohm) ~ Dig (Krillowatt)
    IF
    Slowking is fully paralysed, Krill uses Imprison {Thunder, Thunderbolt, Earthquake} (Krillowatt) A3
    IF Krillowatt faints, use Ice Beam (Cyclohm) from then on


    EDIT: So it looks like Imprison targets all opponents, despite the wording in the DAT. Which is a shame, because it means that speed ties really mess things up.

    [​IMG]
    Bide ~ Bide ~ Unleash Bide
    IF
    you get fully para'd A2 THEN rage and use Ice Beam (Cyclohm)

    [​IMG]
    Ice Beam (Cyclohm) ~ Imprison (Thunder, Thunderbolt, Counter) ~ Thunder ((his) Krillowatt)
    IF
    (his) Krillowatt faints, use Ice Beam (Cyclohm)

    Note: As dogfish44 had no way of knowing about the Imprison change, Athenodoros' first set of orders was used

    Match Two Round One:

    The rain continues to fall.

    The second round pits the challenger's Krillowatt and Cyclohm, the CaP powerhouses of his gym team, against an opposing Krillowatt and Cyclohm, who he had met... somewhere else. The challenger is quick to fire first and his magic shrimp launches a blast of electricity that lights up the arena for a second. Slowking is harmed, but goes on as if nothing had happened. The opposing Krillowatt takes advantage of the opening and blasts a pulse of cold air at Cyclohm, who shrugs it off.

    Krillowatt extends a wave of bonding energy towards Cyclohm, linking together their souls for just a moment. Cyclohm is unnerved, and certain regions that connected them were burned out by the touch. But the tie is soon broken as Krillwatt loses his focus as a nasty blast of electricity is fired at his partner. Cyclohm stands dumbly, stunned by the contact.

    Slowking looks at Krillowatt with a look of intelligent ferocity. Before formula can move it collapses to the ground, flailing in pain as a tremendous telekenetic assault rocks through its mind, tearing apart each aspect of its mental existence systematically as the shrimp is fried by a mental heat. By the time that Formula has stopped flailing, it has taken the single worst hit it has ever taken in its career. Enough to knock it out in one shot. Cyclohm stands looking on in shock as the leader's Krillowatt rushes below the earth to deal a ground based tackle to the dragon.

    Rain continues to fall.
