The Order of Turns
Maxim Picks his mon and ability
DEMo picks his mon, ability, and actions for the Round
then Maxim will select his actions
I will then ref
DEMo will choose his actions for the next round
Maxim will then go and select his actions
I will ref, once again
and this repeats until the battle is completed.

I will and can explain the rules of switching if it comes to that if someone is unsure.
 
#3
I choose Monohm, with his Static Ability.

"Monohm, attack with Thunder Wave. Then follow through with a Charge, and then Thunderbolt!" (Please tell me if I screw up, as this is my first battle)
 
#5
"Alright, let's counter his moves with our own Odin. Start off with a Fake out to mess up his Thunder Wave, then use a Earthquake while he's charging, then Protect against that thunderbolt."

Fake Out~Earthquake~Protect
 
#6
Welcome to an exciting event here folks, we have DEMo_Gorgon 47's first battle ever. How exciting! Anyways, lets get to the match. Our first match up is between Colosshale and Monohm. Colosshale starts off by Faking out Monohm, causing him to flinch this actions. Next, Colosshale raises his body up, and slams down on the earth, creating an Earthquake, dealing some pretty serious damage to Monohm, who spends the turn Charging up. Then Monohm attempts a Thunderbolt, but it slams straight into Colosshale's Protect

1) Well, the ASB Arena is basically the vanilla arena. There are no restrictions at all. I'd post the flavor but nobody really uses the flavor anymore :/.

2) No, Odin is aquatic only, but there's a moat around the arena that works.

Round 2

Well with the first round over, it seems to me that Colosshale and his trainer have just a bit of a lead. Lets see if they can keep that lead going in round two. Monohm uses a quick Thunder Wave attack, but only to get walled by Colosshale's protect. Colosshale gets his attack off just fine though, he lifts his body up like he did before, and uses Earthquake, causing Monohm to go flying. Monohm recovers it's balance though, and fires off a Thunder Bolt, getting his first bit of damage for the battle on Colosshale. But Colosshale isn't done yet, he fires off a Mud Bomb at Monohm, blasting the little guy. Monohm finishes his actions up with a second thunderbolt, right as his charged energy disappears.

Grrrr, if only I could get him to be paralyzed, either by Static or by Thunder Wave. I dont have time to Charge anymore, i'll just have to keep my old strategy up.

Round 3

This battle has gotten kind of boring, both trainers have seemed to find a patern of moves, and they're sticking with them, Thunder wave gets protected again, you'd honestly think he'd come up with a better plan then doing the same thing over and over again. Then it's just a volley of Thunderbolts and Earthquakes. Lame. Next round.

Darn, all of that and he's still going to get first blood. Oh well, let's go all out.

Mud Bomb+Bubblebeam combo~Cooldown~Earthquake

Clarification: You can use any two moves in your movepool to make a combination attack, as long as those attacks could realistically be combined. However, the priority is low and one has to cooldown after the attack.
 
#16
Thunderbolt~Thunderbolt/Cooldown~Cooldown
(Thunderbolt if Odin survives the first, Cooldown if he doesnt)

All I need to do is hit him so that he goes down. Mud Bomb shouldnt do TOO much, and Bubblebeam may have STAB, but Monohm also resists it. And with the negative priority on his combo, I should strike first. So these Thunderbolts should do the trick (what? It's "working", also, I used Thunder Wave last round so Maxim would use Protect, making Maxim only get 2 move in instead of 3)

Round 4

Holy Lord. Something interesting happens, A thunderbolt from Monohm finally takes first blood in this battle, and Colosshale falls to Monohm, Maxim, your next pokemon please.

Monohm used Thunderbolt
24 damage, 14 energy

Round 5

Maxim sends out his Riolu next, preparing to take out DEMo's extremely weakened Monohm. Monohm attempts to T-Wave Riolu, but gets to hit the ground again because of Riolu's incredible Agility. Riolu goes first, and strikes at Monohm with an earthquake, while Monohm uses the only other move it knows. Thunderbolt. Riolu finishes the battle off with a Force Palm, finally knocking Monohm out.

Riolu used Agility
-7 energy

Monohm used Thunder Wave
-6 energy

Riolu used Earthquake
17 damage, 7 energy

Monohm used Thunderbolt
16 damage, 6 energy

Riolu used Force Palm
11 damage, 4 energy

Eh, Static only works on contact attacks, which means that while Force Palm could have paralyzed, Earthquake couldn't because it doesn't involve direct attacking.

Bullet Punch+Force Palm combo~Cooldown~Force Palm
 
#25
Crap, so much power so quickly

Protect~Dragon Dance+Dragon Dance Combo~Toxic
(if only one can be protected against, I choose Force Palm, if I can block both... well then the choice is obvious lol)
