    Promise me you'll keep the battle interesting.

    Arena: Safari Zone
    The safari zone is mainly a grassland, though there are some features that are notable. The safari zone is a very large expanse of grassy land. In the very center of the zone, there is a plateau that appears similar to a mesa, except not quite so elevated. Five feet off the ground, the plateau is roughly twenty feet in diameter. It is rock. To the north, elevation increases and ends in various cliffs and crags. Falling off will result in a KO. Flying Pokemon may fly off the edge and fly back, though they may not stay airborne for more than three actions. To the south, elevation decreases, and it becomes a lake full of clear fresh water. Each Pokemon may drink from the lake once. The lakewater may or may not do anything. To the west, there are some large trees that form an impregnable barrier. It is possible to go a couple feet in the thick brush, but you cannot go too far in. To the east, there are scattered boulders in the cracks of the walls. Small Pokemon can fit inside the cracks. They may or may not lead anywhere. Extremely powerful attacks (9 BP or greater) have a 25% chance of causing a Pokemon to jump out and attack for self-defense. They are as follows (rarer Pokemon can be assumed to be more powerful):

    Xatu - 30%
    Scyther - 20%
    Pinsir - 20%
    Heracross - 15%
    Tauros - 10%
    Wobbuffet - 4%
    Safari Warden - 1%

    "Look at the scenery, brother! Isn't it amazing?" Lenneth gawks as a flock of Xatu fly ahead.
    "You know that's not why we're here."
    "Yeah, yeah I know, the battle. Sue me for stopping and smelling the Roselias, you neurotic wuss."
    "Since you are obviously to busy taking in the scenery, I'll have to start this battle. Go, Cyndi (Mareep)!"
    "Of course, the sheep. Don't you have anything stronger than that pathetic ball of yarn?"
    Laharl ignores the insult and focuses on his opponent and their Pokemon choice.

    "Stategy is how we'll win this, Cyndi! Let's get him on the defensive by using Thunder Wave to force him to block it! Next, hit him with a Thunderbolt as he gets close, then force him to use Thunderbolt again by using Thunder Wave. I have a feeling one of the Thunder Waves is bound to hit due to you being naturally more proficient with electricity!"

    Arena: Safari Zone
    The safari zone is mainly a grassland, though there are some features that are notable. The safari zone is a very large expanse of grassy land. In the very center of the zone, there is a plateau that appears similar to a mesa, except not quite so elevated. Five feet off the ground, the plateau is roughly twenty feet in diameter. It is rock. To the north, elevation increases and ends in various cliffs and crags. Falling off will result in a KO. Flying Pokemon may fly off the edge and fly back, though they may not stay airborne for more than three actions. To the south, elevation decreases, and it becomes a lake full of clear fresh water. Each Pokemon may drink from the lake once. The lakewater may or may not do anything. To the west, there are some large trees that form an impregnable barrier. It is possible to go a couple feet in the thick brush, but you cannot go too far in. To the east, there are scattered boulders in the cracks of the walls. Small Pokemon can fit inside the cracks. They may or may not lead anywhere. Extremely powerful attacks (9 BP or greater) have a 25% chance of causing a Pokemon to jump out and attack for self-defense. They are as follows (rarer Pokemon can be assumed to be more powerful):

    Xatu - 30%
    Scyther - 20%
    Pinsir - 20%
    Heracross - 15%
    Tauros - 10%
    Wobbuffet - 4%
    Safari Warden - 1%

    Round One Start!

    Welcome to the Safari Zone, where prospecting trainers get the chance to capture rare and powerful Pokemon to use for their rest of their lives (for the small price of 5000000 PokeDollars and the guarantee that you'll only use our Safari Balls which come with a super special catch rate of 0.001 to ensure that you never catch anything). However, due to the budget deficit, we have had no choice but to open the zone up to trainers itching to duke it out with other trainers! Of course, the safari Pokemon have run away to save their own skins, but once in a while a loyal Pokemon shows up and defends the zone. There's also the Safari Warden, but he never shows up; he's too busy searching for his Gold Teeth.

    The two contestants today have paid a generous amount of money to have the chance to battle. In a show of endurance, the contestants have decided to make it a 6v6 battle! *cheers* I suppose this means less advertising time... Let's meet our contestants. On the south end, near the lake, Temperantia and Cyndi! *clapping* On the north end of this large expanse, meet Darkamber and Tim! *applause* Let's get this battle started!

    Tim jumps into action, attempting to summon a large earthquake to hit the zone. Halfway through his action, he sees Cyndi sending a tiny spark of electricity lazily towards him. Outraged at the nerve of the little lamb, Tim, forgets about the earthquake and summons a huge bolt of electricity. The Thunderbolt crashes down on the little spark and both disappear immediately. I think this is... overkill.

    Continuing his streak of using overpowered moves, Tim attempts to stab Cyndi with extremely sharp rocks. Each rock deals some damage, and the attack deals significant damage. Cyndi takes the hit in stride, returning the blow with a large thunderbolt of her own. Her proficiency in electricity makes it deal a significant amount of damage. In fact, her proficiency allowed the thunderbolt to smash Tim in a weak spot, dealing more damage than usual!

    Tim starts summoning another earthquake, but stops for the second time this round when he sees that Cyndi is attempting to send another lazy spark of electricity coming his way. Once again, the spark stimulates Tim's irrational fear or electricity sparks and Tim summons another huge thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt smashes into the spark, and both disappear again. Tim really needs to take a break.

    Round One End.

    "Thunder Wave first, Cyndi, but if he uses Thunderbolt to try to cancel it out, use Cotton Spore instead. The next turn depends on your first action, if you used Cotton Spore, then use Thunder Wave, if you used Thunder Wave, then use Charge Beam! If you used Charge Beam second turn, use Thunderbolt. If you didn't, use Charge Beam."
    The Mareep tilts its head to the side for a few seconds, then nods in approval.

    Thunder Wave-> Charge Beam-> Thunderbolt
    or if first Thunder Wave is cancelled/dodged
    Cotton Spore-> Thunder Wave-> Charge Beam

    That's not fair.

    Plan B: use Earthquake to create a barrier between you and the attacks! (FYI Himalayas formed by earthquakes, two faults pushing against each other make fuckin' huge mountains, and if Earthquake can make huge trenches, it can make a god damn lump-shield of earth to block some wimpy spores). Wait until the Thunder Wave disappates, then get close and Stone Edge! Finish with an offensive Earthquake!

    Arena: Safari Zone
    The safari zone is mainly a grassland, though there are some features that are notable. The safari zone is a very large expanse of grassy land. In the very center of the zone, there is a plateau that appears similar to a mesa, except not quite so elevated. Five feet off the ground, the plateau is roughly twenty feet in diameter. It is rock. To the north, elevation increases and ends in various cliffs and crags. Falling off will result in a KO. Flying Pokemon may fly off the edge and fly back, though they may not stay airborne for more than three actions. To the south, elevation decreases, and it becomes a lake full of clear fresh water. Each Pokemon may drink from the lake once. The lakewater may or may not do anything. To the west, there are some large trees that form an impregnable barrier. It is possible to go a couple feet in the thick brush, but you cannot go too far in. To the east, there are scattered boulders in the cracks of the walls. Small Pokemon can fit inside the cracks. They may or may not lead anywhere. Extremely powerful attacks (9 BP or greater) have a 25% chance of causing a Pokemon to jump out and attack for self-defense. They are as follows (rarer Pokemon can be assumed to be more powerful):

    Xatu - 30%
    Scyther - 20%
    Pinsir - 20%
    Heracross - 15%
    Tauros - 10%
    Wobbuffet - 4%
    Safari Warden - 1%

    Round Two Start!

    Welcome back to the Safari Zone, where a cute lamb is attempting to defeat the giant dinosaur. Good luck with that.

    Tim the Rampardos appears to be much more fidgety then normal, which is quite understandable, seeing that Tim thought that a thunderbolt was absolutely necessary to cancel out a lazy spark of electricity. As Cindi sends the third spark of electricity towards Tim, he reacts differently, summoning an earthquake to create a hill. The hill rises quickly, effectively blocking the spark of electricity.

    Tim rushes over the hill with prehistoric power, ramming into the yellow sheep with sharp stones. The stones poke the soft underside of Cindi's belly, dealing more damage than expected. Cindi quickly responds by sending a beam of excess electricity, but aims horribly; the beam flies out into the sky. Things seem to be going horribly for Cindi when an enraged Tauros rushes out into the open. It doesn't seem to have Anger Point activated, but the rage is enough to intimidate Tim, lowering his attack by one stage! The Tauros rushes forward and attacks Tim with a Take Down, dealing some damage, and immediately rushes back out.

    Tim, shrugging the hit off, proceeds to summon yet another earthquake, which hits Cindi for a scary amount of damage. Unfortunately for the Rampardos, this attack angers a nearby Pinsir, who jumps out, pincers clacking. The Pinsir effortlessly tosses Tim into the air and jumps back into the bushes before Tim lands. The Rampardos takes 10 points of damage. Cindi adds more damage with a large thunderbolt, which deals significant damage.

    Yeah... RNG decided to be screwy.

    Round Two End.

    "Cyndi, I've said it once, and I'll say it again: Strategy is how we'll win this! Agility past that earthquake of his to close the distance and hopefully avoid getting too hurt. When you're past the wall of Earth, use Thunderbolt before he can earthquake again. Finally, Screech through that wall of earth (dirt is a better conductor of sound than air) he puts up if you can hold out."


    PS I don't think you can evolve the pokemon unless you get a KO with it, Darkamber.

    Round 3: Lamb Chop

    Yo. Looks like our little ref Engineer Pikachu got stampeded over by a horde of Tauros, so I gotta take over for him. Don't worry, he's getting his medical attention just fine. He'll live!

    As far as I know, this is the Safari Zone, where shit happens. Looks like Tim got a bit frightened from a wandering Tauros from before, but he's still managing to smash this lil' sheep into cotton puff. Mmm, wool.

    Hey, you feel that? That's an Earthquake! It's freaking real! This certainly shook Cyndi up into stage fright! However, she seems... prepared for the worst this time around and pushes out her fluffy muscles into a swift Agility aimed straight over the earthen hill to... Tim himself! The shaking of the quake is certainly taking its toll on the hill, though, as pieces of ground droop down like a waterfall; luckily, Cyndi just made her way on the other side, but she droops down swiftly and bangs her head! Due to Cyndi being vastly slower than Tim, we can say she still managed to get into a slight mess from what the Earthquake caused before climbing the hill - sliding rocks, unstable balance of footing, and wild POKEMON! Looks like a Xatu has appeared and it seeking to defend its native Safari Zone from any danger! It gives Tim the Night Shade of death before fleeing back to the trees like the noob it is.

    Even after the Agility, Cyndi is still slightly slower than Tim, and that, to put short and sweetly, makes her at the end of her line. Tim looks down and stares right onto the miniature Cyndi and stomps a magnificent Earthquake that shatters the hill once and for all! This causes a landslide that rushes down on all sides of the hill... causing not only Cyndi to be swallowed through, but even Tim himself! As both Pokemon are getting burrowed, it seems like Tim's rocky strength was enough to withstand the rocks and ground as he stretches and flexes out of the slide. Some little eyes pop out from the bunches of rock - it's Cyndi! Immediately, the darkness inside lights up brightly and out comes a shocking Thunderbolt that smashes onto Tim's dreadful face. Good thing he's still full of life though!

    Tim now feels the need to end this sheep's painful life. He stomps again for the finishing touch, the decisive Earthquake, the ender of all sheeps. This shakes the entire arena and crumbles even more rocks onto Cyndi and drains the life out of her... until she... peacefully faints like an angel. I think Tim should sign up as a terrorist.

    Lenneth mockingly laughs seeing her dejected brother's face as he recalls Mareep.

    "Ohoho, brother, yet again you fail and I must take your place. Mr. Bubbles, (Croagunk) finish the task my brother could not. Cross Chop, then Vacuum Wave, followed by Chill if Tim has fallen, or Vaccuum Wave if he hasn't. We''ll make quick work of this fossil."

    Round 4: Dino... Dead Dino

    Dead sheep too. =( At least Mr. Bubbles's here!

    But Tim's not going down without a fight! There he goes, ravaging through the fallen rocks and dirt, smashing them like little ants as he bashes into Mr. Bubbles with a violent Zen Headbutt attack! This inflicts massive MASSIVE damage to Mr. Bubbles's body and soul, but he's able to retaliate back with the finishing Cross Chop that cuts through Tim's body. This causes him to tumble over immediately on his belly and... ultimately faint. Mr. Bubbles celebrates his victory by dancing and dancing... until a shady figure pops out of nowhere. YOU! YOU USE CROSS CHOP IT HAS 10 BP 25% CHANCE ACTIVATED I KILL YOU NOW!!!!!!

    It's... a beautiful Xatu! Maybe it was the one that appeared last time, but who knows. This time around, it casts an awesome Confuse Ray that links and hooks up onto Mr. Bubbles with ghostly horror. That was quite severe! Afterward, like always, Xatu flutters back to its home, probably on a tree or something. I might go find it myself.

    "Mr. Bubbles, start off with a Fake Out.Your opponent most likely won't evolve, (there really is a rule somewhere in the data audit thread, I know :3) but your next action depend on if it did. If you're still fighting a Tympole, Poison Jab, if not use Revenge then use Swagger. You and I will show how much more effective we are than Laharl and the puffball!"

    "Speak while you can, sister. You're not in the greatest shape as is, and our opponent is no pushover..."


    Fake Out-> Poison Jab/Revenge -> Swagger

    A few things.

    "If you enter a battle and your Evolution Counter increases to the necessary amount, or you get a KO and want to use your KO bonus to evolve immediately, you may do so at the cost of 20% of your Pokemon's energy. Evolution is the only counter that can be increased and applied to evolve mid-battle. If a Pokemon's Maximum HP increases when it evolves to its next form, it gains the increase in HP (ex. A Pokemon with 90 Maximum HP and 37 Current HP gets a KO and can evolve with the KO Bonus into a Pokemon with 100 Maximum HP, will lose 20% of its Energy, evolve, and its new Current HP will be 47 when it resumes battle.)"

    Palpitoad was approved by Smash, so it's allowed. It'll gain the Ground typing upon evolution, so I'm putting that in this post and future posts. Evolutions during battles will cost 20% energy. Sorry Temp! I would've still Revenged though since it's pretty good!

    Note: It would seem that Squashy should've "skipped" first action, but that... actually shouldn't happen. It should follow the sequence of orders. Instead of "2-3", it should be "1-2" and then its last order couldn't be carried out. Well, not like it has a difference since it would've been another Earth Power; just letting you guys know.

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

    Round 5: ffffFROGS!

    And lots of them! Except, one's still a tadpole, but I'm sure she can beat up a real mature frog!

    Mr. Bubbles immediately sets to waste this action with a stally Fake Out! Looks like even his confusion couldn't stop him! This snaps Squashy and flinches his movements. Trying to buy time Mr. Bubbles? I don't think you got the cash to buy more time!

    Squashy then calls upon the earth's might and splashes an astounding amount of power from the ground right under Mr. Bubbles's feet! This propels Mr. Bubbles straight into the sky... but he's flying... straight toward Squashy for a Revenge attack! How in the world he knew where Squashy was even when confused is beyond me. This smackles Squashy's slimy skin a bit, but she's alright! At the end, Mr. Bubbles's confusion slips right off his mind. Both attacks shook the foundations of the Safari Zone by a good margin, but it seems that no foreign invaders were that interested in coming along and interfering. Frog haters?

    Now closeby, Squashy delivers a bomb of mud from the ground that blows up upon impact on Mr. Bubbles's face! There was so much mud that it lowered his accuracy! With a face full of mud, Mr. Bubbles attempts to Swagger off like a cheesy pimpster, but instead, he was doing that with silly motions AND at a tree! Hahaha! I think that was like... pretty funny! Wait, isn't that Xatu's nest right there? O_O

    Mr. Bubbles

    A1: Fake Out > 4 + (4-2 x 1.5) = [7 Damage] [4 Energy]
    A2: Revenge > 12 + 3 + (4-2 x 1.5) = [18 Damage] [7 Energy]
    A3: Swagger > [7 Energy] (missed)

    Squashy
    A1: flinch
    A2: Earth Power > 9 + 3 + (4-1 x 1.5) x 1.5 = 25 - 3 = [22 Damage] [7 Energy]
    A3: Mud Bomb > 7 + 3 + (4-1 x 1.5) x 1.5 = 22 - 3 [19 Damage] [5 Energy]

    "Grrr, this isn't turning out as planned. As a send-off Mr. Bubbles, Sucker Punch if it attacks, Swagger if he doesn't. You did a ....good job."



    Sucker Punch/Swagger -> Vaccum Wave -> Sucker Punch/Vaccum Wave

    Use second slash options if he doesn't attack

    Round 6: One Unlucky Ribbit

    Noticing that he's at the last of his line, Mr. Bubbles calms himself down a bit and waits for his opponent to move. Squashy seems to be preparing a mighty Earth Power! Mr. Bubbles notices this and immediately runs right behind Squashy at the speed of light for a naughty Sucker Punch! This pokes Squashy on her back a bit, but she then controls the Earth Power directly under Mr. Bubbles and KAPOW! Mr. Bubbles's flying... flying... BUMP! And slammed onto a tree... sliding... down... fainted.

    ...ok, we can do this.

    Surf ~ Toxic ~ Surf! Replace the second Surf with Toxic if the first misses.

    It's just a Combee, let's go for the double-KO!

    "Iseria, let us show him the grave mistake he makes by underestimating you... Start with a nasty Bug Bite to pressure him. Follow by dodging that first Toxic with an evasive Tailwind. Finally, finish with a Mud Slap for good measure."

    The Combee, relatively new to battle, struggles to assess its owner's commands until the small red dot on its lower comb (denoting its status as a future queen) pulsates for a fraction of a second. Iseria's eyes then show recognition of Lenneth's orders, and the Combee begins to go on the offensive...

    Bug Bite-> Evasive Tailwind-> Mud Slap
