    Moon Sim Inc.

    In the deserts of Nevada, there is a deceptively large building. Why 'deceptively' large? While it seems to sprawl out across the dunes, there is actually only one room. Indeed, it is a large room, but nothing spectacular.

    Though it may seem weathered and abandoned from the outside, the interior of MoonSim Inc. is as full of hustle and business as any modern corporation, but with a subtle difference. In the middle of the room, only separated from black marble flooring and whirring machinery by a knee-height plexiglass barrier, there is a little bit of the moon. Or close enough, anyway.

    Hitting the temptingly-red button causes a large Pokémon battling arena to erupt from the centre, immediately entrancing the multiple Elgyem acting as aides to the scientists. They were found here in the desert about twenty years ago, and MoonSim Inc. was subsequently founded on the site. The founders couldn't remember why they'd made it - it was just as if the idea had popped into their minds. Anyway, I digress.

    Gravity is being tested today, so there will be two effects in progress:

    1) When the match Seeker's Pokémon is winning, all Psychic Pokémon gain the Levitate trait.
    2) When the match Seeker's Pokémon is losing, strong Gravity comes into effect.

    Whether a Pokémon is winning or losing is decided by (HP+Energy)/(Original HP + Original Energy).

    Hmm... well our Dark type would suggest an advantage here, but Starmie's good movepool and our Rash nature suggest otherwise. So lets start out by softening the blows we will be taking. Calm Mind and then Snarl twice.

    Calm Mind - Snarl - Snarl

    Here's a little trick I have up my sleeve...

    Reflect Type ~ Thunder ~ Blizzard

    Thank goodness for Timid natures.

    After exchanging a few words, both battlers send out their Pokemon. Alchemator sends out Steve the Starmie, while jas61292 sends out Lafayette the Murkrow. Steve comes out with a blinding flash as the light reflects off its gem, lowering Lafayette's accuracy one stage. Being apparently faster than Lafayette (perhaps due to how long Lafayette's name is....), Steve uses Reflect Type to copy Lafayette's typing, hoping to nullify the type advantage that Lafayette had. Lafayette sees this and starts to lose his cool--all he really had going for him in this matchup was the type advantage, but soon starts to Calm his Mind, raising both his Special Attack and Special Defense. Steve then fires a shocking beam of Thunder, striking Lafayette dead on, although it did not paralyze him. All Lafayette can manage to do in response to this is start Snarling, sending out a dark wave towards Steve.... that fails to connect to it. Steve, confident that it has the upper hand, unleashes an icy cool Blizzard from its gem to blast Lafayette again for super effective damage. Lafayette once again Snarls, barking out strange sounds that send another dark wave toward Steve, this time hitting it and lowering its Special Attack!

    Who is winning???

    Steve: (82+79)/(90+100) x 100 = 84%
    Lafayette: (44+81)/(90+100) x 100 = 65%

    Due to Starmie's powerful hits, Murkrow is feeling quite a bit of pain and is currently losing the battle. The arena senses this, and all Psychic Pokemon gain the trait Levitate!

    Hi! That first Thunder should have hit because, due to my timid nature, the roll is actually 910/1000 - it gives me a flat 21% increase on the accuracy of my attacks.

    Having said that - Thunder ~ Blizzard ~ Thunder

    If he ever uses Confuse Ray, I want you to Illuminate to dispel the light with your own!

    Also, shouldn't the post round info have some stat drops/boosts from all my moves?

    Though with that type change, more special moves aren't really a good idea. So lets do: Sky Attack - Night Shade - Sky Attack

    Hi, I'm sorry, I totally messed up that last round in terms of accuracy shit (i reffed at like midnight bad idea...). I never did Illuminate lowering Murkrow's accuracy, nor did I do the accuracy boost from Timid, so Thunder should have hit while the first Snarl should have missed. I'm going to let both of you change your moves for this round. My apologies, won't happen again!

    EDIT: <%Alchemator> I'm going to stay as I am in terms of actions, if you want to edit your post saying that

    jas, you still have the option of editing your actions for this round though!

    The round starts off with Lafayette glowing as he flies a little higher into the air. Steve, sensing a powerful attack coming, blasts him with another Thunder, which despite Lafayette's height, manages to connect for strong damage. Lafayette counters this with a Sky Attack, dealing a significant amount of damage but not managing to flinch Steve. Steve then shoots one final Blizzard at Lafayette, knocking out of the sky and fainting him! Almost as if it was timed perfectly, Steve's Reflect Type then fades away as it becomes a Water/Psychic-type once again...

    Who is winning???

    As there is only 1 Pokemon active right now, the arena reverts to normal for the next round!

    Arena: Normal


    jas61292 recalls Lafayette with a grimace, and sends out Blaster the Porygon-Z! Blast immediately Downloads information about Steve, and in doing so it raises its Special Attack! Steve, not liking where this is going, tries to damage Blaster as much as possible with a Hydro Pump. However, it is weakened from battling Lafayette, and the power of the attack is slightly diminished. Blaster starts a Nasty Plot, increasing its Special Attack even more. Steve, sensing that Blaster is about to unleash a powerful move, sets up a Light Screen to protect itself. Blaster then fires an immense Hyper Beam, boosted by its earlier Special Attack boosts as well as its abilities Adaptability and Analytic. The attack leaves Blaster a little sluggish. Steve is hit hard and is sent flying across the arena, and in response can only use Reflect Type to change its typing to Normal. Blaster, still a little sluggish, apparently does not notice this and attempts to fire a Shadow Ball at Steve, but to no effect.

    Who is winning???

    Steve: (38+44)/(90+100) x 100 = 43%
    Blaster: (85+78)/(100+100) x 100 = 81%

    Steve is already tired from its rounds with Lafayette, but Blasters powerful attacks have left it even more exhausted. It is losing, and the arena knows this. A strong Gravity came into effect!

    Ummm..... 2 hits should knock Starmie out. And combos have negative priority.

    So, lets go Blaster, take the Hydro Pump and then KO it before it can launch that nasty looking Thunder combo.

    Tri Attack - Hyper Beam - Tri Attack

    Steve, wanting to do as much damage to Blaster as it can, fires a Hydro Pump at it. Blaster, knowing that its opponent is already weakened, attempts to hurt Steve even more with a swift Tri Attack. The attack stings, doing just a sliver under half of the HP Steve has left. Blaster then follows up by firing another powerful Hyper Beam at Steve while it is charging for its combination attack. Steve barely hangs on with 2 HP, and knowing its time is short, launches a Thunder+Thunder combination, taking full advantage of the Gravity on the field. The attack lands, and due to its incredibly high paralysis chance, paralyzes Blaster. Blaster ends it with another Tri Attack, fainting Steve!

    Who is winning???


    As there is only one Pokemon on the field again, the arena reverts to normal!

    ...of course I miscalculated. Darn.

    Also, technically Starmie should have use Hydro Pump and then Thunder + Thunder due to Alch's substitution. But, as he got all 3 attacks in, and Hydro Pump and Blizzard have the same power (and no STAB due to the type change), the overall damage would be the same, so it shouldn't really matter

    Well, I still think we can pull this one out.

    Start off by recovering, then Hyper Beam it, and follow up with a Tri Attack. But if it tries to Toxic you, reflect it with a Magic Coat.

    Recover - Hyper Beam - Tri Attack
    Replace 1 action with Magic Coat if Toxic is used, and push other actions back

    Silly computer virus - face the wrath o' my FIREWALL!

    ...wait, what do you mean it's an Electric-type?

    Charge ~ Light Screen ~ Toxic (Deliberately miss)

    He did say "if Toxic is used" rather than "if it uses Toxic on me" so this means he'll use Magic Coat but I won't be poisoned because I missed??? I don't know.

    Ingame that is not how Magic Coat works, but flavor-wise that makes sense so I am allowing it. Unfortunately for that strategy the following happens....

    Alchemator recalls Steve and sends out Lloyd the Mareep! Lloyd, quicker than the paralyzed Blaster, starts to Charge up electricity in its wool, raising its Special Defense for the hits it knows will come. Blaster takes this opportunity to Recover some health that it lost in its match-up against Steve. Lloyd, still preparing for some strong hits, uses Light Screen to replace the one that just faded. Blaster feels that the time is right, and looses another powerful Hyper Beam, doing a lot of damage to Lloyd, but the impact was softened due to Lloyd's preparations. Blaster is about to set up a Magic Coat when it feels a numbing sensation and becomes fully paralyzed! Lloyd, prepares a Toxic for his opponent, but at the last second turns around to deliberately miss? Strange.....

    Who is winning???
    Lloyd: (67+78)/(90+100) x 100 = 76%
    Blaster: (62+38)/(100+100) x 100 = 50%

    Blaster is losing, all Psychic types gain Levitate..... so basically nothing

    Unless I'm missing something I think P-Z should be at 27 energy rather than 38: 11 + 9 + 10 makes 30, and 57 - 30 is 27.

    E: Never mind, he was fp'd.

    This will be tough, Lloyd, but we can make it! First, Thunderbolt + Thunderbolt combo to make use of that Charge boost. Then you can cool off and finally use Thunder wave!

    However, if he uses Magic Coat on the final action use Charge instead.

    Wow, that was lucky. Though I must applaud you Alchemator for such an awesome idea. I just got lucky with the paralysis.

    Well, I don't really feel like taking such a powerful hit, but we have no dodging moves, so we can't avoid it. However, since the last move that actually hit Blaster was Starmie's Thunder+Thunder Combo, using Conversion 2 should make us resist this next move. And if it happens to choose ground, we will be in control of this match. Then lets chill out and Hyper Beam.

    Conversion 2 - Chill - Hyper Beam

    The bulbapedia version of Conversion 2 says that in Gen 5, "Conversion 2 now changes the user's type to make it resist the last move the target used." The Data Audit thread description is consistent with other gens, where "Conversion 2 will change the user's current type to a random type that either resists or is immune to the type of the last damaging move it was hit by." Therefore I"m going with the Bulbapedia description, as it is more up-to-date. Sorry jas :(

    Arena: Psychic-types gain the ability Levitate


    Lloyd, not liking the injury it sustained last round, starts to charge up a powerful combination attack. Blaster sees this coming and uses Conversion 2, trying to change its typing to something better equipped to take the blast. It ends up becoming a Steel-type for the next 6 actions! Lloyd finally uses a combination of Thunderbolt+Thunderbolt, drawing on the Charge he used last round for even more damage. Blaster decides it is getting low on energy, and chills while Lloyd is recovering from his attack. Lloyd suddenly lets out a Thunder Wave to refresh the paralysis on Blaster, while Blaster fires back a Hyper Beam, although it is significantly weakened without STAB.

    Who is winning???
    Lloyd: (49+37)/(90+100) x 100 = 45%
    Blaster: (32+36)/(100+100) x 100 = 34%

    Blaster is slowly regaining a lead with its powerful attacks, but as of right now, it is losing this matchup. Luck may turn the tides, but I guess we'll find out. The arena stays the same!

    That's perfectly fine, though that should probably be brought up as a potential change in the Data thread. However, even if I had know that, I probably still would have used it. A chance to get ground was all I wanted.

    Unfortunately Steel does nothing for us. But, we are coming back, so lets keep it up. Use your second recovery and then another Hyper Beam, and Chill again to keep your energy up.

    Recover - Hyper Beam - Chill
    If you are fully paralyzed on action 1, keep trying recover till it works, and then chill

    That is highly relieving - I would be totally fecked if Ground had been chosen. Then again, I might still be...

    Charge ~ Light Screen ~ Chill

    If he's fully paralysed action 1, Thunderbolt instead.

    Lloyd starts the round using Charge again to boost his Special Defense. Blaster then Recovers some more HP (it is now out of recovers for the match!). Lloyd then sets up another Light Screen as soon as the previous one fades. Blast launches another Hyper Beam, doing good damage but also expending much of the energy it has left. Both Pokemon choose to chill out and gain some energy back as the round ends. And with that, Blaster's Conversion 2 also fades, leaving it Normal-type again!

    Who is winning???
    Lloyd: (31+34)/(90+100) x 100 = 34%
    Blaster: (52+27)/(100+100) x 100 = 39%

    Because of Blaster's smart use of recovery, it has managed to take back the lead. The arena starts to have a strong Gravity! However, will this only be temporary? Stay tuned to find out!
