Hey, what time is it? The giant clock face is blocking my view!...What do you mean it's hammer time? That's not supposed to start for another half-an-hour! You meant clobberin' time? Who do you think I am, The Thing? You meant Adventure Time? I don't have time for this! I've got a match to ref at the Prague Astronomical Clock Tower and...oh, I'm already here. That was easy. The gears are all in perfect working order here at the world's oldest working clock tower: the Prague Astronomical Clock Tower! It is here that eager competitors Son_of_Shadoo and Alchemator have come to duke it out, Dialga-style! SoS sits in one corner(?), trimming his silhouetted mustache; Alch puts on a light show with his hands in the opposite corner. Finally, the time has come for me to make more time jokes than should be physically and legally possible these two to compete to see who is the true Time Lord! ...But first, let's see all that this arena can do. Arena Description (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Arena Description (open) Arena Description (close) Arena: Chrono Stadium This arena resembles a giant version of the face of Prague’s Astronomical Clock. There is a moat around the edge of the arena but there are no natural elements such as grass nearby. The flow of time in this arena can change radically with the following effects: Normal time flow - nothing special. Fast time flow - every pokemon's attack and special attack ranks are multiplied by 1.5 with halves rounded up; every pokemon has +1 evasion. Slow time flow - every pokemon's defence and special defence ranks are multiplied by 1.5 with halves rounded up; every pokemon has +1 accuracy. Reverse time flow - turn order is completely reversed (ie, higher priority attacks happen after lower priority ones and a slower mon's attack happens before a faster mon's one of the same priority); for attacks with a charge-up or evasive action (eg, Focus Punch, Sky Attack, Dig), swap the priorities of the charge-up/evasive action and attacking action before reversing the turn order; the "cooldown" action for combos occurs on the action before the combo is executed rather than after. Crazy time flow - turn order is randomised, disregarding priority and speed completely; attacks with a charge-up or evasive action still have that action occur before the attacking action. Round 1 has normal time flow, then at the end of every round, each of the five time flows has an equal chance of being chosen for the next round. A time flow's effects remain until the time flow changes to something else. I like rules! They're comfy and easy to follow! And, of course, what is a Pokemon battle without Pokemon?

Alchemator calls a time out to choose his Pokemon and issue actions. SoS eats some thyme while issuing his own actions. I time out on IRC because I'm reffing. Reverse action order. STOP: REFFING TIME Son_of_Shadoo, it's time to get this show on the road! Choose your 'mon!
