    "Now, normally DarkSlay would post which Pokemon he sends out first. But given that there's only one Pokemon for each side to send out, we'll skip that step. Wikey, you go first, then DarkSlay."

    Anyways...

    Alright, Holden. Take this Oran Berry and get out there.

    Start by flying at Salmon to Knock Off his berry. Then hover by the ceiling and do a little Swords Dance. Once that's finished round out your turn with a sure-fire Faint Attack.

    (Sorry about not picking an item or CPing my poke for you, tort. Posting from my cell phone. :P )

    All right Salmon, this is a pretty good match-up to be in right now. I want you to focus on hitting Holden quickly and often, while shutting it down too!

    First, we need to get Holden into a less offensive mindset. Yawn to make Holden sleepy and out of focus immediately while it knocks off your berry (poor Leppa berry ;_;). Next, as its boosting its attack with Swords Dance, use Calm Mind to boost your own Special Attack! Finish it off with a strong Ice Beam, hoping to give it a little freeze there.

    So:
    Yawn -> Calm Mind -> Ice Beam

    Anyways, time for Round 1!

    Holden the Gligar decides to kick things off by crippling Slowpoke and remove its item with Knock Off. Gliding across the arena with its very high speed, as Salmon the Slowpoke, being, well, a slowpoke, doesn't really have time to dodge. Gligar knocks off Slowpoke's Leppa Berry, sending her flying into a pool of water at the dojo's edge.

    Nevertheless, the rather bold Slowpoke isn't intimidated (and despite super-effectiveness, Slowpoke doesn't seem too phased, and Yawns at Gligar from point blank range!) Aside from Gligar feeling the immediate effects of smelling the rather bad breath of a fish-eating Pokemon, Gligar seems to be getting slightly drowsy...still, he manages to easily pull off a Swords Dance as Slowpoke calms her mind.

    Gilgar seems to be starting to have trouble staying awake, but he sneaks quietly up to Slowpoke before delivering a nasty Faint Attack! Of course, Slowpoke is unphased, barely taking more than 1/10 of his health-this guy is one hell of a tank! Slowpoke responds with a sharp Ice Beam to Gligar's left wing. This rather obviously deals some pretty hefty damage to the Ground/Flying scorpion. Gligar, slightly startled by this new turn of events, expertly cuts the ice off with his right claw. Of course, once that's completed soon he returns to a state that is even more sleepy.

    Slowpoke, looking as calm and happy as ever, sits with her flanks heaving with light, easy, but deep breaths. Gligar has plenty of stamina left, but it's feeling pretty tired from the almost narcotic Yawn.
    Time for the trainers to call a few new orders! DarkSlay, you're up first!

    Excellent job, Salmon! You just bought us a good deal of time to get in some nasty attacks.

    Okay, since we really only have to worry about one turn causing very little damage, I want you to simply fire off another dangerous boosted Ice Beam at Holden.

    At the end of that, he should glide down right to the ground and be in a deep sleep for a few turns asleep. I want you to Calm Mind the first turn it's asleep, and Surf on the last turn of the round.

    Hang in there Holden!

    Go right at him with a Night Slash. Then try to stay awake by showing off your extreme Agility. If that works finish things off with another Night Slash.

    "And we're back! Gligar starts the round off with-" *Slowpoke gives a slightly pained cry.*

    "WHOAH! A critical hit! Gligar's Night Slash certainly doesn't seem fun for Slowpoke! Looks like Slowpoke has a cut from that attack-but she seems a bit slow to notice, as shortly after she's used another Ice Beam, this also at point blank range for some more good damage!

    Gligar can barely stay awake, but the feeling of having dealt so much damage at once gives it energy to use Agility, temporarily regain energy and stay on target. Slowpoke, however, it moving at its own tempo, and doesn't mind that Gligar isn't asleep like he thought. She calms her mind anyway, focusing for her next attack!"

    Gligar manages to- wait wait wait.

    "ANOTHER critical hit with Night Slash?!"

    Holy Miltank! Lady Luck and her husband Ryan N. Golden must really be favoring the FlyScorpion today! Slowpoke seems visibly afflicted by the two attacks, but he managed to relatialte with a powerful blast of Surf! However, this second attack rather than helping Gligar exhausts him, and he falls to the ground-he'll be asleep for a while. Let's hope Gligar wakes up quickly for Wikey's sake!

    Hm...Yawn didn't take it's effect like it was supposed to, but I suppose we can work with this too, Salmon!

    Holden should be asleep for a while, which is good news! You should be able to fire off a Surf with ease! Then fire off an Ice Beam!

    On the last turn, you should be able to KO it even after the Oran Berry takes effect. Finish off this match with a Surf!

    So:
    Surf -> Ice Beam -> Surf for the KO!

    "Alright! Time for Round 3!"

    "Gligar is sleeping like an egg. Despite his trainer's calling to him, Gligar doesn't hear, giving Slowpoke the opportunity to launch another wave of Surf! Luckily for Gligar, it was JUST powerful enough to jolt him into a groggy state of semi-awareness. Gligar suddenly finds himself on the receiving end of an Ice Beam, leaving him barely standing! He eats his Oran berry in the meantime.

    "Feeling far more awake now, Gligar makes a final attempt to defeat Slowpoke-as he engages in another Night Slash, claws ripping furiously at Slowpoke, he JUST misses getting another critical hit!" Slowpoke is hurt, and he's feeling weaker, but she's still sitting up and breathing.

    As Slowpoke survives the assault, Holden the Gligar has one final thought as what seems like the contents of every pool in the arena-and then some extra water-rush at him in one final Surf.

    Crap.




    -----------------

    As the water sinks and the weather seal somehow causes all the water to move back into the pools for another round, Slowpoke is simply sitting calmly, with Gligar clearly knocked out. The water cleanly washed the wounds from Gligar's two critical Night Slashes, leaving few traces behind. Slowpoke is getting tired, but she's clearly sitting in the normal position for Slowpoke-the one that indicates they are not fainted.

    DarkSlay and his Slowpoke, Salmon, win!

    Good match Wikey. You had a pretty bad mismatch, but Holden turned out to be a pretty large force! You were a great opponent. :)

    Salmon receives one Move, Dream, and Evolution counter. It also receives one KO counter, which I will be using as a Move Counter. Using these two counters, I will be buying the TM for Thunderwave!

    I receive two Trainer counters, which I will be saving.

    Thanks for reffing, Tortferngatr. You did a very good job. :)

    Good match. Thanks to both of you. Once I saw you had a Slowpoke I knew you'd use him as both my mons are weak to water. If I had known it'd end so fast I'd have gone with Swords Dancex2 - Night Slash followed by Swords Dance - Night Slash. Not sure if that'd been enough since Slowpoke is such a tank.
