    Arena: Flying Gym (no real name as of yet)
    Switch: KO
    Items: Off
    2 Substitutions.


    Flying Gym (open)
    A few miles off the coast of land a large pillar sticks out of the ocean. It reaches up into the clouds, the top blocked from view when the sky is not clear. Atop the pillar lies a square battlefield, traditional in almost every sense. However, a few important differences set this place apart from your standard Pokemon arena.

    First of all, the pillar itself is hollow and filled with water, that creates a pool at the fields center, giving combatants a water source other than the sea miles below. Secondly, the field itself is exceptionally thin, and as such all Pokemon who attempt to bury through it will plummet to their demise if they cannot keep themselves aloft. Finally, at each corner of the field are pillars with what appear to be nest-like structures at the top. These features allow sky based Pokemon to rest their wings more easily.

    But what is even more important than the physical features of the arena are the natural effects of the location. Due to its location above the tropical seas and the directness of the sun's rays, hail turns to rain before it ever reaches the ground. Additionally, a lack of sand makes summoning a sandstorm impossible.

    However, the most prominent feature of the gym is the wind. At this high altitude, strong winds are nearly a constant. The prevailing air currents bring big gusts in from the west on a regular basis, from right behind where the gym leader stands. This provides a constant effect similar to a Tailwind at one third of normal strength for the gym leader's Pokemon. In addition, the strong winds also amplify moves that use their effects, boosting their power and their accuracy as.


    Summary:

    • No Sandstorm or Hail
    • The thin battle platform prevents Dig.
      • Well technically using Dig will just cause the digging Pokemon to plummet thousands of feet into the water below, putting them out of bounds and knocking them out of the battle.
      • Flying and Levitating Pokemon who won't fall can still use Dig, but it won't actually do anything.
      • Seriously though, this is the flying gym. Why would you be using Dig anyways?
      • All other attacks are allowed.
    • Energy Cost of Roost reduced by 1.
    • Permanent Tailwind-like effect on Gym Leaders side (provides 1.33x speed boost)
    • Wind Based attacks have their base accuracy increased by 10% up to a maximum of 100%
    • Wind Based attacks have base power increased by 2
    • Wind based moves include the following: Hurricane, Razor Wind, Gust, Twister, Air Slash, Ominous Wind, Silver Wind, Heat Wave, Icy Wind (There may be others that I am forgetting)
    • Changes to the accuracy of attacks due to the wind are factored in before any other effects, such as stage boosts to accuracy or evasion.
    • All effects, including the power boost to wind moves and the Tailwind effect, are arena effects, not weather effects, and thus can not be negated by Cloud Nine, Air Lock or other such effects.
    Shortly away from land, a pillar stands that stretches miles into the sky. It is unkown why it was built or for what purpose, but that is irrelevent to the scene today. Lightning and wind begin to stir high above the world, as if the storm gods where clashing against themselves. A high altitutude, high stakes battle is about to occur with intensity matched by the roaring winds around the arena.

    Welcome to the top of the world.

    Whelp... here it goes. There is no way we are outdamaging that thing, and of course it has to get Ice Beam so I can't even try the neutral Dragon v Dragon matchup. But I have to try something so:

    Go Epic the Deli... I mean... Go Hatchet the Tomohawk!

    Taunt - Toxic - Yawn

    If protective move is used and you do not have a substitute up, use Substitute (20 HP) and push actions back.
    If protective move is used and you DO already have a substitute up, use Stealth Rock

    Not sure if this will work well at all, but its worth a shot.

    And frankly, the fact that me bringing Delibird insults you insults my Delibird. It is a bird of potent ability, and if this goes as badly as it looks like it will, you may get to see it in action (Besides, its not like there was much else I could bring. At least it has a few battles under its belt, unlike my Farfetch'd).

    Round One: Insult and Injury

    The wind seems to intensify as a mighty hawk faces down an evergrowing thundercloud. The dragon raises all three of his heads and roars as thunder crashes in the distance. The chaos above the world seems to intensify as the battle between the lords of the thunderstorm begins.

    There's no way to outdamage such a mighty opponent, and jas decides to play with the enemy rather than face it head on. Tomohawk begins a war dance that clearly displays every ounce of the power he can muster, while a chant that includes a word sounding supsicously like "Delibird" is repeated frequently, obviously to terrify the dragon with thoughts of the mighty beast it might have to face should it not just allow itself to be defeated with honor. Of course, ancient dragons do not take well to idle threats, and Nimbus roars as a mighty blast of electricity descends from an even higher elevation to injure his opponent badly.

    The winds of battle blow on, and Hatchet spews out a powerful mix of toxins from his mouth and spits them towards Cyclohm, who does not like the acid slowly eroding into him. Rather than playing a waiting game and joining the war of attrition, another bolt of lightning crashes into the arena, signifying that this battle is far from being won by slow stall tactics.

    Tomohawk finishes his round of taunting and goading by yawning loudly, the sound being carried by the wind towards Cyclohm who is made aware of his own tiredness that has built up through long periods of extensive training. But, like any good trainer, the challenger decides to switch tactics. Or more specifically, switch to switch tactics. Cyclohm's mass is converted almost entirely to energy as a tremendous pulse of power races across the field, some of it colliding with Tomohawk as the dragon's body is restored, only the poison remaining of the chieftain's efforts.

    And the wind howls on, this time blowing over a badly weakened hawk facing down the lighining bolts of judgement.

    Taunt: 10 energy, Cyclohm taunted six actions
    Thunderbolt: [(10+3+3)*1.5] 24 damage, 6 energy (5476 no Paralysis, 3003 no crit)

    Well... ummm.... damn. We do have a lot of tricks though. So lets go with out typical strategy: throw our fate into the hands of luck and hope for something good.

    Round Two: Luck is the Great Equalizer

    The winds blow upon a desperate scene, where thunder is outdamaging wind and all of the tricks that wind can pull up leave little real impact. The clouds above the arena are steadily becoming more charged as the lightning prevails.

    But the Gym Leader doesn't give up. Instead, he orders Tomohawk to cast the fate of the battle to luck. The bird agrees, and flaps up between Cyclohm and the sunlight, and begins to flap in an odd manner that creates a confusing pattern of light over the arena. Cyclohm is unable to aim with such confusing tactics employed, and ends up accidentally striking himself. However, the attack simply glances off due to his physical weakness and Tomohawk's imposing dance.

    Seeing the trick succeed, Tomohawk is forced to land back on the ground and recover, unable to sustain the pattern. Indeed, his feathers are quite matted and he has to preen them extensively to regain flight. Cyclohm is still thrown off by the light, and ends up unable to do anything but launch glancing blows on himself.

    Finally, the winds pick back up and Tomohawk is motivated to begin offensive actions to actually harm his opponent. While the earth on the pillar is thin, it does exist, and Tomohawk fires off a massive blast of earth-imbued energy that begins to coat Cyclohm and blind him, causing him to lose some focus that could make him more vulnerable to special attacks. The dragon counters by loosing another thunderbolt from the heavens, sending Tomohawk back down to about where he started the round at.

    While the metaphorical winds of battle still blow against the Gym Leader, they blow a little less strongly now.

    Round Three: Hiding No More

    "We shall hide no more!"

    Wind rushes back over the battlefield as Tomohawk drops lower to the ground, shooting up another blast of earthen energy at his foe that sends him a few steps back, but not particularly shaken.

    "No matter, we continue as always."

    A massive blast of frozen air is shot back into the wind, growing in size as it strikes Tomohawk's wings, bringing it a single step closer to its end. Both sides realize this is the last blow of the engagement, and fire off massive pulses of aura and ice that rush across the battlefield and collide in a massive release of energy that manages to slow even the winds.

    But could it slow the winds of momentum increasingly shifting against the leader?

    Round Four: Dragons and defenses

    Newly unleashed, Ledian prepares to weather the superior offenses of a massive thunder dragon. It quickly goes further inside of its shell, using winds to create a barrier between itself and everything else. Cyclohm blasts out a glowing sphere that transforms into a stone and almost breaks through the winds before being bounced away. Ledian then manipulates the light reflecting off of him into a full shield, blocking out other light based attacks. However, it doesn't stop a rogue thunderbolt from shattering the winds around his body. Lucas resummons them just in time to dampen another blast of a Power Gem attack.

    Round Five: Frozen Fury

    Ledian begins clapping rapidly, creating a humming sound with the wind that amplifies the applause until Cyclohm is tricked into believing an army of spectators is enamoured with his Power Gem. So, he shoots it off again, shattering the wind around Ledian.

    Ledian doesn't care, and simply reforms another, stronger barrier that can tank just about any hit whatsoever when combined with the light shield. Cyclohm launches off another gem, which also fails to break the shield.

    Finally, both charge up one massive attack. Cyclohm raises his tail and imbues it with lightning and ancient energy that flows throughout his entire body. Ledian raises all of his fists as a chilling wind begins to sweep across the battlefield. Both sides charge. Ledian flies straight for Cyclohm, the wind at his back, and slams his fists into the dragon with incredible force that stops his attack cold and takes it down for the count.

    Round Six: Dust in the Wind

    With Cyclohm down, jas61292's troubles are not over as dogfish44 sends out an Electrivitr that is possibly more dangerous than the dragon. As Ledian rests, Electrivire taunts him about how little a pathetic insect can do to him, and that his chance is long gone. Ledian rallies, and launches a weak tackle that leaves it barely awake, and only slightly harms Electrivire. The Wizard strikes back by unleashing excess electricity, shattering Ledian's substitute and boosting his own efficiency. With his role over, Ledian returns to his Pokeball unconscious, harming Electrivire in the process.

    Well, here we go. Roosevelt (Salamence) intimidate that Electivire, and show him some pain. We might have no shot at victory, but there is no way we are losing 2-0.

    Earthquake x3
    If Electivire uses a Protective move and you don't have a substitute, Substitute (20 HP) that action
    If Electivire uses Substitute (25 HP), Roar that action

    EDIT:

    Just for reference, EQ is fine with this arena:

    Round Seven: dogfish44, the noobslayer

    "Roosevelt, let's finish this!"

    The winds of despair have begun to blow around the battlefield, and the cause seems all but lost for the gym leader. With the wind at his back almost a cruel reminder of how the battle should've gone, he thinks of the best way to finish things.

    "Alright, let's give this all we've got to the end. Earthquake!"

    "Counter it back. This is over."

    Huge blasts of earth begin to tear through the platform, shaking the entire tower as the winds suddenly increase, reaching a maximum force that shakes the entire arena and threatens to blow it apart. Electrivire roars, and the blasts increase further still until the entire tower begins to be held in place solely by the balance of vibrations that race through it, the tension becoming stability as the arena is held in an inevitable collapse that will occur as soon as the damage is done.

    And at last, the battle closes. Rocks begin to fall down to the earth, ground racing towards it's mother as the tower is chipped away little by little, until the chunks are no longer so little, and boulders the size of Salamence are whipped around by the wind and fall back to the ground.

    And no one remains until the dust clears, leaving only the leader to withdraw his Salamence as it falls, from the safety of one of his other birds. As he stares across the patch in the sky where his gym once was, he notices an electric eel slowly floating back up through the clouds, with a man and a large humanoid tagging along. And he laughs. Laughs at the failure and futility of the winds in the storm, blowing around aimlessly while the lightning inspires terror. A small piece of metal changes hands before both fly away, the battle done.

    Fin.
