I am lazy. I quote. I also made a small change in the description because it didn't make sense before. I'll be bolding it (it'll be a long line, not one word, the one word bold is for emphasize). ALSO, I may manually increase the DQ time mainly because Aquamarius is from Europe (or the Netherlands more specifically), and we're over at US (I think), so it can get pretty bad. We'll have to see. Arena: Castle Siege! So here's the deal with the arena. One side has a continuous force of Weedle and one side has a continuous force of Caterpie. What are they doing? Seizing each other's castles over at a single ramp/bridge that connect to each other's castle! At the end of each round, both sides will spawn their respective Pokemon and they will charge into combat with each other. Additionally, you will get reinforcements in the form of other Pokemon. The cool thing? You get to command these Pokemon! (Extra) Details in short: - no evolved Pokemon. - this is a bridge, no digging or earthquaking. also yes there is a river under the bridge, but it'll be stupid to try to summon a surf or dive or something like that. - commanding a Pokemon soldier does not take up one of your 3 actions. it is separate so be aware! if you do not command your soldier(s), your soldier will automatically focus on your opponent's soldier. if you still have your soldier alive and your opponent doesn't, your solder will automatically target your opponent. this means that your soldier won't do anything special like "save my skin by getting in the way of the incoming hydro pump!" - each Pokemon spawns at the end of their respective round. - each Pokemon only comes in a quantity of 1. - excluding caterpie and weedle, the types of reinforcements that spawn will never spawn again. - you can have your own Pokemon attack these reinforcements. - they do not have any set abilities, ever. - area of effect moves, or moves that cover a range/wide range in general, can probably attack these Pokemon soldiers if they're in the way. - the soldier's attacks are affected by any Pokemon's defensive stat/star when they attack. to be clear, the damage listed is the exact damage they will be doing. caterpie does 5 damage, but if your mon has 3 star defense, it will take 2 damage. - to be even more clear, the type of damage they deal is ALWAYS neutral - they will not be super effective, resisted, or immune to. this is so you guys don't abuse ghost- and steel-type pokemon. you can say it's like dealing ??? type damage. - when you start the match (before Round 1), you do not have any soldiers initially. after round 1, you will have something (just see below). - some soldiers (aka Caterpie/Weedle) are so weak that even if they attempt to absorb an attack, they will probably just be blasted through and the attack will connect to your Pokemon (if that's what your opponent's intention was). - you can order 1-2 attacking order to your soldier(s) per round, but you have to order 2-1 non-attacking orders. for example, "Bug Bite - Standby - Move into Hyper Beam" would work. basically, you can say you're the general of your army, lol. Stats: - Every Round Grunt Caterpie (P1)/Weedle (P2) - 1 HP | 5 Damage Tackle* | 0 Defense and Special Defense | 20 Speed | on ground - Round 3 Air Support Pidgey (P1)/Spearow (P2) - 5 HP | 6 Damage swooping Fly | 0 Defense and Special Defense | 40 Speed | are always Flying, but can be attacked as it swoops down to attack - Round 6 MegaSoldier Scyther (P1)/Pinsir (P2) - 15 HP | 10 Damage Slash | 1 Defense and Special Defense | 35 Speed | on ground - Round 9 Heavy Artillery Pyroak (P1)/Magmortar (P2) - 10 HP | 25 Damage Hyper Beam | 4 Defense and Special Defense | 10 Speed | cannot move onto bridge, recharge after use (null round) - Round 12 Engine of Destruction Hydreigon (both get it) - 25 HP | 20 Damage Draco Meteor (-5 after each use, stops at 5 Damage) | 5 Defense and Special Defense | 60 Speed | floats anywhere it feels like - After Round 9, Caterpie and Weedle will be granted Double-Edge over Tackle (it will be replaced). This means they can deal 12 Damage, but will kill themselves upon doing so. * Tackle is not originally learned by Weedle, but it's just for balance purposes. I'm not sure if the diagram will help, but I made one anyway.
