Gym Leader Engineer Pikachu vs Its_A_Random

#1
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the first gym battle in the new poison gym. Today currently undefeated leader Engineer Pikachu will face his most serious challenger yet. Incidentally, this could be IAR's third badge. Will he be the first player to get two badges, or will his bid end like my own and that of dogfish44's? Keep watching to find out. But first, the rules:

Format: 3v3 Singles
DQ: 48 Hours
Abilities: ONE
Switch: OK
Items: ON
Substitutions: THREE
Infinite chills / Recovers

Cleverly hidden underneath one of the largest garbage dumps in the world, the Sludge Zone is a medium-sized facilities that aims to promote battling under extremely toxic conditions. The Sludge Zone, while serving as the arena for the Poison Gym, is not responsible for any health conditions including cancers that may develop in you or your Pokemon after battling in this location. Radiation suits are sold separately.

Despite being in a rather unforgiving location, environmental resources necessary to perform all attacks are provided, free of charge. A cluster of rocks for throwing are located in a corner of the room, natural grass - albeit glowing from radioactivity - is abundant across the floor, a small pond in the other corner of the room, and anything else Pokemon may require are all present. Of course, as the Sludge Zone is tailored to provide those who enjoy the sludge a few advantages, the entire arena has also been swamped with a thick layer of nutrient-rich sludge, which provides Poison-type Pokemon some comfort as well as the ability to grow even stronger as time passes.

In addition to the sludge across the arena, the walls also have special hose-like things that spray out poisonous fumes while the battle is raging; these fumes seem to have the ability to damage most Pokemon over time, and for some reason the presence of weather seems to increase the toxicity of them - perhaps it's not a good idea to get too weather-happy, then. The fumes also seem to power up poisonous attacks launched at each other, making their poison just a little more potent. Lastly, the sheer amount of poisonous materials in the Sludge Zone allow for the use of Gastro Acid by any Poison-type Pokemon.

We hope you enjoy battling here at the Sludge Zone. Possible side effects include nausea, diarrhea, constipation, yellowing of the skin or eyes, temporary insanity, or death in extreme cases. Remember to refrain from operating heavy machinery shortly after leaving the Sludge Zone, and be sure not to touch other people, either. Ask your doctor for more details.

Summary:

  • +1 final Speed for those adapted to the environment.
  • 0.5 DPA to Pokemon that have do not have a Poison or non-corroded Steel typing. A Pokemon can be PSNed in addition to this, but all Pokemon count as being PSNed. Poison Heal is not activated.
    • If any weather is present, the DPA is doubled. Sunny Day, Hail, and Sandstorm have a duration of one (1) less round, while their respective abilities have a finite duration of four (4) rounds.
  • The strength of toxins within the Sludge Zone is increased significantly.
    • BPSN starts at 2 DPA instead of the normal 1 DPA, including that from Toxic Spikes.
    • If a Pokemon that is afflicted with PSN would get poisoned again, it instead turns into BPSN, which escalates to 3 DPA at the end of the round.
  • All Poison-type Pokemon can use Gastro Acid, even if they could not normally learn it.
  • All attacking moves with the word "Acid" in them will cause corrosion if they would not do so already.

i would've sworn it said 1 not 2 my eyes suck

How do you like my new arena? I just had it constructed. Perhaps you'll be a challenger worthy of it. I can't say I've fought so many Ground-type Pokemon in one battle as of yet, but typing isn't everything, yes? I look forward to seeing you fight; it'll help my research, at any rate.

Kailu, come greet our challenger!

Naturally, after months of waiting, IAR finally got the opportunity to take on the Poison Gym...Naturally Engineer gave the welcome, but despite the type advantage, this was certainly not going to be an easy fight...

"Utilitand @ Expert Belt, retaliate with an offensive of your own! Your Prankster Ability should do the trick here!"

Earthquake > Drill Run > Earthquake
IF Counter is issued, THEN use Earth Power that action.
IF (Speed Reducing Move) is issued, THEN use Bulldoze that action.
IF (Non-Combo) Taunt is issued, THEN use Dig that action.

As a Ground-type user, it's only reasonable that you like "naturally;" there are, however, more pressing issues at hand...

The poison leader begins the fight with his trusty frog, Kailu the Toxicroak. The challenger counters with one of the most feared Pokemon in the league, Utilitand. Can the many-armed menace pull off a win in a singles match? Engineer seems to think not, exploiting a hole in the substitutions to prevent two devestating earthquakes in exchange for taking two less devestating bulldozes. Combined with a Fake Out, the match is far closer than Engineer's type disadvantage would imply. Can he take the lead and push for victory? Stay tuned.

Knowing Engineer, IAR knew that Engineer had an allergy to attacking second. But given this was a three substitution match, attacking first was not that bad...Maybe...

"Megawhal @ Expert Belt, it is your time to shine! Perhaps auto-poison will work into our favour with your Guts triggered from the start!"

Earthquake > Drill Run > Earthquake
IF (Non-combo) Icy Wind is issued, THEN use Dig that action.
IF (Damaging Water Combo) is issued, AND you do not have a Substitute up, THEN use Substitute (15 HP) that action.
IF Bide is issued, AND you do not have a Substitute up, THEN use Substitute (15 HP) on the first Bide action.

The poison leader switches to his faithful Tentacruel, Kurage, to better tank the hits ahead. His abilities are immediately put to the test, as the wrecking ball of pure destruction, Megawhal, is unleashed. Intent upon showing what it can do, and "poisoned," by the arena, the Collosoil unleashes a massive Earthquake that rocks the entire arena, doing unconfortably high damage to Kurage. The Tentacruel then resorts to the true weapon of an RP ref- Hax. Confused but not slowing, Megawhal runs his horn into his adversary, striking a critical hit with the blow! Engineer's bad luck continues as his Toxic attack misses completely! His poor luck continues as another Earthquake far outweighs his meager attempts to strike back. Can Engineer turn this around, or is he doomed already? Stay tuned to find out.

After such an unreliable play went horribly wrong, IAR expected his opponent to switch...Back to Toxicroak? It was looking pretty obvious that IAR was contempt with ordering first all match...Especially given he had more pressing issues at hand...

"Switching again? Very well then. Utilitand, come back out again!"

It looks as if both sides are back to their old tricks, with both Fidgit and Toxicroak reappearing. Toxicroak launches another suprise attack on Fidgit, depriving it of a vital action. Both sides then trade strong ground attacks of varying sorts until they are both considerably more worn than when they started.

I can't say your use of ellipses is pleasing. But then again, neither is this battle.

Also despite the horrible round that we had before I think we're still okay!

Seems quite unfortunate that the important matches are the ones I can never remember.

Regardless, this all goes according to a rather depressing plan...

Endure - Giga Drain - Muddy Water

Engineer has a plan, but it is bested by his lack of Liquid Ooze in this battle, in favor of Clear Body. While the jellyfish tries to brace itself, it is soon overwhelmed by a trap of sand cast by the earth narwhal. This leaves the gym leader down 3-2 in an increasingly desperate situation.

Let's see what we can do here...

ABIL: Overgrow

Tanka, come on out! That giant whale is giving us some headaches, but I'm sure you can pull through...

Grass Knot - SolarBeam - Grass Knot
IF (Megawhal has Double Team clones when you act) THEN (Use Razor Leaf and restart the queue)
IF (Megawhal uses non-combo Bounce) THEN (Use SolarBeam and restart the queue)
IF (Megawhal is under the effects of a Damaging Evasive Action when you act) AND (Its next action is NOT Encore) THEN (Use Reflect the first, Double Team [2] the second, Synthesis the third, and restart the queue)

Colossoil criticizes the Venusaur on being a bit late to the party, and highly ugly to boot. Venusaur's scent, seing how she's based on a quite fragrant flower, is also brought up. In sheer rage, Tanka summons a handful of vines that strike at the incredibly heavy Megawhal, subjecting it to incredible damage for such an attack. Colossoil then proceeds to maneuver below the earth, surfacing twice as the Venusaur steams with rage, and then flails blindly.

Colossoil: Taunt: 9 energy, Venusaur taunted (6a)
Venusaur: Grass Knot: [(16+3+3)*1.5] 33 damage, 8 energy (642 no crit)
Colossoil is hurt by "poison!"
