    Referees will be posting the matches here, so they're not scattered across the forum, and interested parties can watch on in convenience.

    [​IMG]L[​IMG]ouisCyphre's Th[​IMG]usand Challenge[​IMG]

    [box]This very eve but a fortnight ago, man in a billowing alabaster coat approached you with a key and a sphere, parting thereafter with not a word instructing you how these objects were to be used.

    Puzzled and intrigued, you examined the items with great interest. You read and researched, asked and inquired, but to little avail. After some time and a great deal of frustration, you set them aside as refuse amidst the other, more mundane items in your home.

    Then, and only then, did the items function as intended.

    Upon waking you find yourself in front of a low white seat in the center of what appears to be a wide, ankle-deep pool. Rays of light trace the air overhead, and spires litter the area. More importantly, however, is the white-clad figure on the shallow throne: the very same man who gave you the curious items that presumedly brought you here.

    He looks at you and speaks, "Are you prepared?"

    First-Stage NFE Mons

    LouisCyphre:

    Cassandra (Woobat ♀) (open)

    [​IMG]
    Woobat ♀ - Cassandra
    Nature: Timid (Spe +11, Accuracy +16%, Atk: -1)
    Type: Psychic / Flying
    Psychic Type - Psychic STAB; less susceptible to blinding, more susceptible to sound-based assaults as far as locking on with Psychic attacks, can lift and throw opponents with Psychic attacks regardless of weight difference. Psychic-type attacks are not godlike and cannot be used as a catchall for Disabling, Binding, and redirecting opposing attacks.
    Flying Type - Flying STAB; immunity to Ground attacks outside extremely odd circumstances even for ground-based flying Pokemon. Enhanced aerial mobility. Superior senses in open air arenas.

    Abilities:
    Unaware - (Innate) When this Pokemon is released, a light aura enshrouds the opponent, nullifying all stat boosts or reductions other than Speed, it remains while this Pokemon is active.
    Klutz - (Can be Disabled) The Pokemon moves in a rare style of battling that uses an unpredictable, clumsy looking manner. The accuracy of its attacks are increased by 10% (flat). While engaging in this style it cannot use a hold item, however an item is necessary to pull it off.*
    (DW) Simple - (Innate) This Pokemon innately exaggerates the effect of stat boosts and drops to the point where they have double the stage modifier. Stats still maximize or minimize at six stages.

    Stats:

    HP: 90
    Atk: Rank 1 (-)
    Def: Rank 2
    SpA: Rank 2
    SpD: Rank 2
    Spe: 83 (+)

    Height Class: 1
    Weight Class: 1
    BRT: 13

    EC: 6 / 6
    MC: 0
    DC: 5 / 5

    32 moves known. Moves are sorted by type and then alphabetized.

    Physical Moves - Acrobatics, Assurance, Endeavor, Fly, Heart Stamp
    Special Moves - Air Cutter, Charge Beam, Confusion, Energy Ball, Gust, Hidden Power [Fighting 7], Psyshock, Shadow Ball, Stored Power
    Status Moves - Attract, Calm Mind, Double Team, Fake Tears, Helping Hand, Imprison, Light Screen, Odor Sleuth, Protect, Reflect, Rest, Roost, Taunt, Thunder Wave, Torment, Toxic, Safeguard, Substitute

    Unused to the outside world, Cassandra is innately afraid of anything that isn't commonly found in a cave (along with a few things that are). Putting forth effort to overcome her fears and pull her weight on a team, she nonetheless focuses on defensive play and protecting herself from attack.
    [a]Koffing[/a]
    Smogon (Koffing ♂) (open)

    [​IMG]
    Koffing ♂ - Smogon
    Nature: Quiet (SpA: +1, Spe -5, Evasion -10%))
    Type: Poison
    Poison Type - Poison STAB; immunity to Poison/Toxic, see and breath through smog/smokescreens/haze uninhibited. Able to use Wrap and Bind without losing focus. Superior senses in urban settings.

    Abilities:
    Levitate - (Trait) This Pokemon naturally floats above the earth when released or easily takes flight, evading Ground moves like Bulldoze, Dig, Earthquake, and Magnitude. Other 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.

    Stats:

    HP: 90
    Atk: Rank 3
    Def: Rank 3
    SpA: Rank 3 (+)
    SpD: Rank 2
    Spe: 30 (-)

    Height Class: 1
    Weight Class: 1
    BRT: 14

    EC: 2 / 6
    MC: 0

    17 moves known. Moves are sorted by type and then alphabetized.

    Physical Moves - Assurance, SelfDestruct, Tackle
    Special Moves - Clear Smog, Dark Pulse, Fire Blast, Sludge, Sludge Bomb, Smog
    Status Moves - Destiny Bond, Pain Split, Poison Gas, Protect, Smokescreen, Taunt, Torment, Will-O-Wisp

    Stiffled by acting as a living mascot, a parade pet or trophy mon, Smogon has finally found his way into the hands of a battling trainer. Ready to partake in the activity he's grown to represent, Smogon is nonetheless reserved and focused on his new, wearying path.
    [a]Dratini[/a]
    Oros (Dratini ♂) (open)

    [​IMG]
    Dratini ♂ - Oros
    Nature: Rash (SpA: +1, SpD: -1)
    Type: Dragon
    Dragon Type - Dragon STAB; More in touch with legendary or special auras in arenas. Able to use Hyper Beam and Giga Impact without losing focus.


    Abilities:
    Shed Skin - (Innate) This Pokemon regularly sheds its skin and any impurities contained in its body. If afflicted with a status condition, this Pokemon has a 33% chance of removing all status conditions at the end of a round.
    (DW) Marvel Scale - (Dormant) - (Innate) This Pokemon’s coat shimmers when afflicted with a status condition, reducing the Base Attack Power of incoming physical attacks by two (2).

    Stats:

    HP: 90
    Atk: Rank 3
    Def: Rank 2
    SpA: Rank 3 (+)
    SpD: Rank 1 (-)
    Spe: 50

    Height Class: 2
    Weight Class: 1
    BRT: 13

    EC: 1 / 9
    MC: 0
    DC: 1 / 5

    15 moves known. Moves are sorted by type and then alphabetized.

    Physical Moves - Aqua Jet, Bide, Extremespeed, Outrage, Slam, Wrap
    Special Moves - Dragon Pulse, Dragon Rage, Flamethrower, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Twister
    Status Moves - Agility, Leer, Thunder Wave

    Eldest of a clutch, Oros has the headstrong nature of a brother who makes all of the mistakes of early folly, so that the rest of the brood might learn from such. The school of hard knocks claims Oros as one of their highest alumni, and he is ready to barrel headfirst into whatever his next challenge has in store for him.

    [​IMG]
    Munchlax [Zzz!] (M)
    Nature: Impish (+1 Def, -1 Spa)

    Type: Normal
    Summary: Normal STAB; adapt comfortably to any surrounding after 3 actions. Able to use Outrage without losing focus.

    Abilities:
    Pick Up: Type: Innate This Pokemon has a natural habit of collecting items. Whenever a hold item (its own or an opponents) is used or knocked onto the ground with a move like Knock Off, this Pokemon will immediately pick up that item without using an action. It can also grab dropped or naturally occuring hold items in arenas.
    Thick Fat: Type: Innate This Pokemon has a great deal of extra fat or muscle that increases its resistance to extreme heat or extreme cold, reducing the type effectiveness of Fire-and Ice-typed attacks to the next level of resistance (2x weak becomes neutral, neutral becomes resistance, etc.)
    Gluttony: Type: Innate This Pokemon devours healing and stat increasing berries at 50% health (flat) instead of 25% health (flat).

    Stats:
    HP: 120
    Atk: Rank 3
    Def: Rank 3 (+)

    Hello folks, and welcome to the Order's Sanctuary! In this arena, it seems as if a Munchlax, Zzz!, will fight against a Koffing mascot, Smogon! BEGIN!

    Zzz! is quick to set up a Protective aura around itself, glowing a slight green, which reflects off the arena floor. Which allows the term "Freak" to be added to Smogon's list of unheard Taunts thrown at Zzz!, which are too vile to be shown on children's TV.

    [​IMG]: 90/90
    [​IMG]: 120/93​

    Smogon's insults just keep rolling as the Taunt lasts for longer than expected. Riled up over comments about his mother and a local weightwatchers, Zzz! now charges into Smogon with a ]Body Slam, Paralysing the ball of gas.

    [​IMG]: 78/76 ~ Paralysed (20%)
    [​IMG]: 120/86 ~ Taunted (5a)​

    As paralysis hampers Smogon (That a server error?), Zzz! now fires off a Zen Headbutt, smashing Smogon around like a football... sorry, SOCCER ball.

    Smogon hopes that hax doesn't hit him this time... and it seems as if his hopes are in vain. At least he didn't use any energy, as Zzz! Tackles into him, bouncing into Smogon as if kicking a Football (Or for the yanks amongst us, a Soccer Ball).

    [​IMG]: 57/76 ~ Paralysed (5%)
    [​IMG]: 120/77 ~ Taunted (3a)​

    Smogon now limbers up, spinning around and releasing a Smokescreen across the arena. Zzz! is still able to latch onto Smogon's smell, and blasts the poisonous orb with a Zen Headbutt.

    [​IMG]: 45/72 ~ Paralysed (5%)
    [​IMG]: 120/71 ~ Taunted (2a)​

    Smogon finally scores a hit with a Sludge Bomb, though I doubt that it can recover from abysmal luck and constant Tackles.

    Zzz! continues fire with a Zen Headbutt, and Smogon's one response is to Flinch. Jesus christ Lou, did you forget to pay your RNG Tax this week?

    "Our ref seems to think we're screwed, Smogon. We have another way about this, perhaps."

    Smogon - Pain Split | Chill | Taunt.
    If Protect is used A1, switch actions 1 and 2.
    If Protect is used A3, Chill instead.

    Battle BGM
    Speed reffing forme due to the results being a forgone conclusion...​

    Smogon pulls a nasty trick, a Pain Split (+25 HP / 25 Damage / -34 EN), as Zzz! counters with a Critical Zen Headbutt (Crit 142 - Yes ; 17 Damage & +17 HP / -18 EN). All hope seems lost for Smogon, who simply Chills (+12 EN), as an overeager Zzz! uses Substitute (25) (-24 EN). All looks good... until it's evident Zzz! is Out of Energy and falls face first. Smogon's face just stares blankly at the failure, before smiling a goofy smile.

    Match to Lou!

    [​IMG]
    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 increases its critical hit rate stage by 1 permanently, to a maximum of 5. Critical hit stages are 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/3, and 1/2.
    (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.

    Absol stands apart from other individuals - even teammates - as a matter of choice. She approaches conflict slowly, and after much thought. Bringing a cold stare and colder temper to bear, Absol favors a prudent offense to more zealously aggressive strategies, and always prepares a backup plan.
    [a]Kadabra[/a]
    Spoons (Kadabra ♂) (OT Terrador) (open)

    [​IMG]
    Kadabra ♂ - Spoons
    Nature: Naïve (Spe +16, Accuracy +26%, SpD: -1)
    Type: Psychic
    Psychic Type - Psychic STAB; less susceptible to blinding, more susceptible to sound-based assaults as far as locking on with Psychic attacks, can lift and throw opponents with Psychic attacks regardless of weight difference. Psychic-type attacks are not godlike and cannot be used as a catchall for Disabling, Binding, and redirecting opposing attacks.


    Abilities:
    Synchronize - (Innate) Pokemon with this ability mentally link their condition to an opposing Pokemon and pass on any status inflicted on them to their foe. Due to their body structure, Poison types cannot be poisoned and Fire types cannot be burned in this manner.
    Inner Focus - (Innate) When an opponent attempts to flinch this Pokemon, it stands firm and continues its attack. If it has another ability that would be activated by flinching, that ability activates.
    (DW) Magic Guard - (Dormant) - (Innate) This Pokemon is infused with a powerful psycho-electric energy that makes it immune to damage from Hail, Sandstorm, and damage from Leech Seed, Poisoning, and Burn. It can still attack itself in confusion, but will not absorb any damage from it. Additionally, the energy protects the Pokemon from its own reckless recoil attacks.

    HP: 90

    Special Moves - Confusion, Psybeam, Psyshock
    Status Moves - Ally Switch, Disable, Encore, Kinesis, Light Screen, Miracle Eye, Taunt, Telekinesis, Teleport, Recover, Reflect

    Having grown in the care of his new Trainer, Spoons is more comfortable working with unfamiliar teammates. Any day now, he expects to be whisked away by some third Trainer, and so on, and he makes connections based on that assumption. It shows in his dealings with others - curt and too the point, with no personal attachment involved.

    [​IMG]
    Dragonair ♂ - Oros
    Nature: Rash (SpA: +1, SpD: -1)
    Type: Dragon
    Dragon Type - Dragon STAB; More in touch with legendary or special auras in arenas. Able to use Hyper Beam and Giga Impact without losing focus.


    Abilities:
    Shed Skin - (Innate) This Pokemon regularly sheds its skin and any impurities contained in its body. If afflicted with a status condition, this Pokemon has a 33% chance of removing all status conditions at the end of a round.
    (DW) Marvel Scale - (Dormant) - (Innate) This Pokemon’s coat shimmers when afflicted with a status condition, reducing the Base Attack Power of incoming physical attacks by two (2).

    Stats:

    HP: 100

    Status Moves - Agility, Endure, Leer, Light Screen, Protect, Reflect, Safeguard, Substitute, Thunder Wave

    Eldest of a clutch, Oros made the mistakes that his siblings learned from, teaching him caution and prudence. His impulses still rule him, however, and he has yet to hone them into instinct.

    Drake the Farfetch’d(*) (open)
    [​IMG]
    <Farfetch’d> [Drake] (Male)

    Abilities:
    Keen Eye (Type: Innate)

    Nature: Quiet (+SpA, -Spe)
    Type: Steel/Psychic
    Steel: Steel STAB; immune to Sandstorm, highly insusceptible to toxic attacks, but can be corroded specifically by Acid and Acid Spray, can be magnetized. Superior senses in high-metal environments like construction sites or factories.

    Psychic: Psychic STAB; less susceptible to blinding, more susceptible to sound-based assaults as far as locking on with Psychic attacks, can lift and throw opponents with Psychic regardless of Special Attack Rank. Psychic-type attacks are not godlike and cannot be used as a catchall for Disabling, Binding, and redirecting opposing attacks.

    Abilities:
    Clear Body: (Type: Innate)
    This Pokemon’s body structure makes it immune to status lowering moves used by opponents. (e.g. Intimidate, Growl, Screech etc.)

    Light Metal: (Type: Innate) [DW, Locked]
    The Pokemon's body is made of a lightweight but extremely strong alloy. It weighs half as much as other members of the species, but is equally sturdy. The Pokemon executes weak attacks much more effectively, adding +1 priority to all their attacks with 6 or less Base Attack Power (after other ability adjustments). Priority is applied to the summed Base Attack Power of a multi-hit move (e.g. Double Kick has priority at 6 BAP, Skill Link Bullet Seed doesn't at 15 BAP.)

    Old Chaos Shrine
    [​IMG]
    Field Type: Neutral
    Complexity: Moderate
    Format: All
    Traits: Artificial Field, No Digging, No Seismic Attacks, No Water Source

    Description:
    A straightforward arena with a large central room lined with destructible pillars dominated by a ramp leading from the doors of the shrine to a throne against the opposite wall. Portraits of four fiendish creatures can be seen in the corners of the room.

    Omega Toll - At the end of each round, 5 of each battler's En is taken by the stage, adding up in "Stage En" pool. Whenever a mon critically hits a foe (other than Frost Breath/Storm Throw), they take all of the Stage En for themselves.
    Coward's Punishment - Each mon that does not order an attacking move in a given round is completely immobilized, rendering them helpless for the entire next round.

    Knock Off > Brave Bird > Slash

    If Knock Off is Protected, set up a 20 HP Substitute, and push actions down.

    And we begin a new 1v1 with a goof up by Ullar, who's Drake tries a Knock Off, but is punished by a mocking laugh as Oros proves to be an Agile serpent and Evades the move.

    [​IMG]: 100/93
    [​IMG]: 90/97​

    Content with his item, Oros now decides that the menu should contain Sizzling Duck, and fries it with a Thunderbolt. However, the recipe was slightly off, as the Bird brain Bravely assaults Oros!

    [​IMG]: 81/86
    [​IMG]: 60/90​

    Putting the new recipe on hold until he can learn to read it (Explains a lot), Oros fires an Ice Beam into Drake's mouth. Moderately irriatated, to say the least, Drake randomely uses his Stick to Slash at Oros. I get the sad feeling now that this is already over, but we can't confirm anything as the Omega Toll drains the battlers.

    Our engagement continues with Drake doing the Leekspin to create a Protective barrier. Oros tries to leap with Extreme Speed and jump through the shield, but ends up tangled in the leek and flung to the side. That's gonna be embarressing...
