    Absol ♀
    Nature: Mild (SpA: +1, Def: -1)
    Type: Dark
    Dark Type - Dark STAB; Immunity to all telepathic and telekinetic attacks, better performance in all darkened and especially twilight conditions. Can use any Dark-type attack regardless of Attraction.


    Abilities:
    Pressure - (Innate) This Pokemon’s presence fills the air with intense anxiety, and any damaging or status attack launched at this Pokemon costs the opposing Pokemon two (2) more energy to perform.
    Super Luck - (Innate) This Pokemon’s natural skill doubles (x2) its*critical hit levels*above other Pokemon, making its normal moves inflict critical hits 12.5% of the time and its high critical hit moves inflict critical hits 1/3rd of the time.
    (DW) Justified - (Innate) This Pokemon's body reacts to dark energy, invigorating its passions. When hit by a Dark-type move, the Pokemon's attack will increase one (1) stage. 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.

    This Seadra set out to prove his worth to the world, and he's learned a thing or two along the way. He prefers to rely on power whenever he can, but he now recognizes the value of competant allies in a pinch. He's not the friendliest critter in the world, but he's a smart enough to understand the worth of give-and-take.

    Flash Fire - (Innate) This Pokemon thrives in high temperatures, and takes the energy of any opposing fire attack, nullifies the damage, and uses the additional power to boost its own fire attack’s Base Attack Power by two (2). Self-targeted attacks do not give the boost.

    Impetuous and inconsiderate, Ambrocious as mindlessly playful and cheery when left idle; begging for attention and play. Only when his playmates are threatened is Ambrocious roused, and when this occurs his demeanour shifts radically; leaving him ruthless and impulsive, acting on emotion alone and without forethought.

    Alright, then, I guess I'll take a bit of a chance and send out Galahad.
    Ability: Rock Head.

    Galahad, I know you're flying blind here, but I want you to focus.
    As a fire-type, Houndour should be emitting a low glow which you can use to target our foe!
    In addition, the Aron family line primarily live in caves, so use your instincts to guide you!

    Start off with the fearsome Head Smash, then Earthquake, then Head Smash again!
    IF Counter is used, use Stealth Rock the first time and Hone Claws all remaining times!

    Round 1 Begin!

    Oh, I forgot to mention, the "can't really see the opponent" thing will in this case amount to a 10% accuracy drop on all attacks from non- Dark-type or cave-dwelling Pokemon without a light source. Not that it matters right now, as Houndour is Dark (which have increased visibility in dark surroundings) and the Aggron family do in fact live in caves, so I'll count that as having visibility.

    Welcome to another exciting ASB battle! I'm Roman the Gallade, and I can't see Irwin anywh--Oof!

    Watch it! You scared the crap out of me!

    Sorry. I can't see anything in here. Just a second...

    Roman used Will-o-Wisp!

    There, that's more like it. Anyway, today we have two veteran battlers squaring off in this creepy crypt. LouisCyphre's sent out his Houndour Ambrocious, who's standing tall against EndQuote's Lairon Galahad.

    Both of them should feel right at home, as dark as it is in here.

    Ambrocious starts off by trying to Sleuth out Galahad's Odor, perhaps to get his bearings.

    There shouldn't be much "sleuthing" involved. I can smell Galahad's BO from up here!

    I don't think Galahad appreciated that too much, Irwin--he's taken his frustration out on Houndour with a massive Head Smash that sent the little dog flying! Ambrocious is back on his feet, though, and takes a shot with Fire Blast! It's a direct hit!

    Didn't seem to have much effect, though. All it's done is make Galahad angry--he's sending out an Earthquake to take out Ambrocious! What a hit--the fiery little pup can barely stand!

    Ambrocious still isn't giving up, though--another Fire Blast attack! That has no more effect than the first blast did, though, and Galahad is moving in for the kill!

    Here it comes--we may have our first KO coming up!

    Galahad charges in with another Head Sma--wait! Galahad's attack missed! Ambrocious leapt out of the way just in time, and the momentum from the attack carried Galahad into the wall behind him! What a stroke of luck for the Houndour--that one surely would've knocked him out if it had landed!

    You're tellin' me. That dodge looked like somethin' straight outta the Matrix.

    With that unexpected turn of events, we've reached the end of Round 1! EndQuote holds a slight lead, but we've only just begun!

    Nice rhyme. You should write poetry.

    Stay tuned for our coverage of Round 2, coming up after this!

    Calculations (open)
    Ambrocious' Odor Sleuth: Ambrocious identified Galahad. Ambrocious expends 6 Energy.

    Galahad's Head Smash: RNG rolls 456; attack hits. Deals 37 damage to Ambrocious. Galahad expends 10 Energy.

    Ambrocious' Fire Blast: RNG rolls 205; attack hits. Deals 17 damage to Galahad. Ambrocious expends 7 Energy.

    Galahad's Earthquake: Deals 22 damage to Ambrocious. Galahad expends 7 Energy.

    Ambrocious' Fire Blast: RNG rolls 146; attack hits. Deals 17 damage to Galahad. Ambrocious expends 11 Energy.

    Galahad's Head Smash: RNG rolls 933; attack misses. Galahad expends 10 Energy.


    Note: the second Head Smash miss was just that--a miss. I didn't add a "dodge" order or anything; that part was just flavor. Just thought I'd clear that up.

    Lou, you're up.

    Galahad, we really can't afford to be confused, so let's dance around those substitutions!
    We'll use a super-Earthquake to knock this hot dog out!

    Earthquake + Earthquake combo ~ Cooldown ~ Chill

    IF the substitution wouldn't activate for a combo (though I think it would...) spam Head Smash three times.

    That certainly didn't take long.

    So let's go back to commercial while we wait for Louis to release his next Pokemon.

    But we just got back!

    Gotta keep the sponsors happy, Irwin. We'll be back after this!

    Here we go, Galahad! That Seadra should be a bit out of it's element in this bloody cave, so we might have a slight advantage!

    Head Smash ~ Chill ~ Head Smash
    IF Head Smash is Disabled, replace it with Earthquake.

    Seadra - Dive | Scald | Dive
    If it is ruled that there is no water source (e.g. water troughs or sacred burial waters) nearby, then replace Bounce action 1 and flood the Mausoleum with Hydro Pump (e.g. no damage dealt) on action 2! Not too deep, though - I don't feel like treading water.

    Round 3 Begin!

    LouisCyphre has chosen his next Pokemon--he sends out his Seadra to try and finish the job!

    Looks like there's a problem, though--there's no water source, and we're still in a crypt, so Seadra won't be able to see well!

    Nevertheless, he's got to do what he can, and Seadra Bounces into the air!

    Just in time, too--Galahad was charging forward with another Head Smash! We've seen what it can do, and if that had hit, it might have been devastating!

    Thankfully Seadra's maneuver caused the attack to miss. But what goes up...

    ...must come down!

    Seadra plummets to the ground--and lands five feet to Galahad's left! He's missed as well!

    The lack of light in here is starting to take its toll!

    Undeterred, Seadra sprays a Hydro Pump into the air--oh, I get it! Seadra is flooding the arena to assist his Water-type attacks! The water's about waist-high when he finally stops.

    That looks like fun!

    Patience, Irwin. Galahad can't swim, but fortunately finds high ground on a floating vault! There he chills to regain some energy.

    Can I go? Please? Seadra's having fun, look! It's Diving into the water!

    Actually, I think that was an evasive maneuver--Galahad tried another, diving Head Smash from his dry perch, but he missed again! And he's struck from underneath by Seadra as he tries to regain solid ground!

    Now can I go swim? Pretty please?

    <sigh> fine. Just make sure you're back before--

    Yay! ^_^ <dash>

    Oy...Water-types...

    Cannonball!!! <splash>

    ...We'll be right back.

    Alrighty then, Galahad, I know you don't like water, but it's only waist-height and falling!
    Let's try...this...

    Round 4 Begin!

    Galahad
    HP: 41
    Energy: 29

    Other: Arena flooded, waist-high (drains steadily over next 3 rounds)

    We're back again for Round 4 of this exciting battle! Er...that is to say, I'm back, as Irwin hasn't returned yet...

    <door slam> I'm here! What'd I miss?

    Ah, good. Perfect timing as usual. We're just about to start a new round.

    What's an ASB battle without color commentary?

    True that, my friend. Galahad starts us off by bracing himself for the oncoming attack! He's poised to Endure whatever Seadra throws at him!

    Speaking of which, Seadra's charging up an attack...ouch! Endure or not, that Brine did quite a bit of damage, especially because Galahad's below half HP!

    Seadra continues to pour it on with a Scalding jet of boiling water! Had it not been for Galahad's Endure a bit ago, that certainly would have been a KO!

    Wait a minute--Galahad is glowing! He charges at Seadra at high speed--Boom-shakalaka! What an Endeavor by Galahad! All of a sudden Seadra looks vulnerable!

    But it looks like Galahad is done! He's out of energy, yet he's still standing from the effects of Endure! Seadra shakes off the thunderous attack from a second ago and fires another shot of Brine at Galahad, but Endure prevented damage because the steel stegosaurus is at 1 HP already!

    And you can see the look in Galahad's eyes--you know he wants to fire back with a Head Smash, but he just doesn't have the energy! And Endure just wore off! He's staggering--watch out! TIM-BERRRRRRRRR!

    <splash>

    Oof...belly flop! That's not going to feel good in the morning. While the grounds crew--

    We have a grounds crew? Here, in an abandoned crypt?

    --Er, while the local ghostly grounds crew repairs the floor under the water, we'll take a break. When we get back, EndQuote will send in his next Pokemon!

    Sorry, Galladiator, but shouldn't Galahad have endured at 1 energy?

    I'm not entirely sure; I took "during the round" to mean "three actions." I'm not in the best spot right now, but I'll check with the guys on IRC when I get home later, and I'll edit the reffing if necessary.

    It won't faint from hitting 0 or less energy, but it will faint immediately after Endure wears off. It's quite literally a last-stand move.

    At the end of the round, yes.
    My question is, shouldn't Head Smash have worked?

    EDIT: Reread that, I sound kinda nitpicky. Sorry.
    I'm sending out Cleo next, I'll order when Galladiator makes the final call on Endure.

    EDIT2: I'm just going to order. Galahad did well, why be argumentative?

    Cleo, you're probably going to be okay in the dark.
    You evolve from Shinx, a Pokémon capable of dazzling foes with a blinding flash of light.
    You evolve into Luxray, a Pokémon with gleaming X-Ray eyes.
    Let's do this!

    Start out with a Wild Charge+Wild Charge combo! I doubt very much that Seadra could Dive beneath us in knee-deep water.
    Then you need to cool down, then finish up with a Discharge that fills the entire arena with electricity!

    IF Evasive Agility is used a1, use Discharge on that action and fill the arena with electricity, then and push actions back (ONLY ONCE)

    Okay, I'm not getting anything from the IRC crew, so I'll keep it as called, I suppose. Lou, whenever you're ready.

    Round 5 Begin!

    EndQuote, you never specified an ability for Cleo. I'll assume you wanted Intimidate, as it would make the most sense here, but be careful next time.

    Other: Arena flooded, knee-high (drains steadily during next two rounds)

    EndQuote has sent in his new Pokemon: it's Cleo, his Luxio! She looks pumped and ready to get started! She roars in fury as she prepares to avenge her fallen teammate!

    All this show seems to be Intimidating Seadra! Look, he's practically paralyzed with fear...but why is he staring like that?

    Cleo readies herself, then lunges forward with a devastating Super Wild Charge! Holy--! What an impact! Seadra literally flew into pieces as he was hit...Wait! That wasn't the real Seadra! The seahorse created a Substitute to shield himself while we were distracted by Cleo!

    Pretty crafty for a seahorse.

    As Cleo recharges from that massive attack, Seadra blasts a Hydro Pump attack at her, which hits for solid damage! But he needs to be more assertive; he can't keep hiding behind Substitutes all day!

    Yet he does in fact make another Substitute. Hopefully this one's stronger than the last one was!

    Cleo doesn't look impressed. She Discharges some of her latent static electricity into the water around Seadra! ZAP! That seems to have startled the Trainers, but Cleo is unharmed!

    And the Substitute's still holding up. But I think some of the electricity got around it and hit Seadra! His own strategy backfired on him in the end! Excellent thinking by EndQuote and Cleo!

    LouisCyphre seems disappointed as he returns Seadra to his ball. He's now down, 2-1. Which of the two Pokemon he has on hand will finish the battle off? Stick around, and we'll find out after this message!

    Ability: Cleo's Intimidate: Seadra's Attack is permanently lowered 1 stage.

    Seadra's Substitute: Seadra loses 15 HP. Seadra creates a 15 HP Substitute. Seadra expends 12 Energy.

    Cleo's Super Wild Charge: Deals 15 damage to Seadra's Substitute (normal damage: 50). Seadra's Substitute fades. Cleo expends 35 Energy.

    Seadra's Hydro Pump: RNG rolls 412; Hydro Pump hits. Deals 16 damage to Cleo. Seadra expends 7 Energy.

    Cleo must rest following the combo.

    Seadra's Substitute: Seadra loses 20 HP. Seadra creates a 20 HP substitute. Seadra expends 18 Energy.

    Cleo's Discharge: Deals 17 damage to Seadra's Substitute (3 HP remaining). Seadra takes 4 damage (arena conditions allow spread of electricity). Cleo expends 5 Energy. Seadra faints. Seadra's Substitute fades. Cleo gains 1 KOC (1 total).


    I decided that the Discharge, due to targeting the entire area (which is still covered in water), does minor (like, 1/4 of usual) damage through the Substitute. Of course, that was apparently enough to end Seadra's day. Sorry Lou. Send in your last Pokemon.

    If Cleo tries to Thunder Wave you, create a Substitute [15 HP] if you do not already have one.
