    Beldum [Mecha] (Genderless)
    Nature: Careful (+1 SpD, -1 SpA)
    Type: Steel/Psychic
    Psychic:Psychic STAB; less susceptible to blinding, more susceptible to sound-based assaults as far as locking on with Psychic attacks, can lift and throw opponents with Psychic regardless of Special Attack Rank.

The Pokemon executes weak attacks much more effectively, adding +1 priority to all their attacks with 6 or less Base Attack Power (after other ability adjustments). Priority is applied to the summed Base Attack Power of a multi-hit move (e.g. Double Kick has priority at 6 BAP, Skill Link Bullet Seed doesn't at 15 BAP.)

    So a battle between roses, well that Bandit might be annoying so let's do something to eliminate her as soon as possible, let's bring back the sun to make sure all the team are signifiantly easier to deal with, that and screens are the few thing that we'll be needing in here

    Cicuta: Sunny Day - Solarbeam (Shoals)
    *If Katherine or Christine are Sleep A1 then use Aromatherapy A1 and push actions
    Christine:
    Flamethrower (Bandit) - Ice Beam (Bandit)
    Katherine: Light Screen - Will-O-Wisp (Mecha)

    A fragrant aroma filled the air as the two roses stood each other down. Bandit wasn't in the mood to steal her her heart today, however. Mecha shook on spot at the prospect of facing a dragon, but Shoals eased its worry with a comforting pat. This is going to be a good match.

    Bandit: Water Sport -> Unown R (Rain Dance)
    Shoals: Substitute (15) -> Razor Shell (Katherine)
    Mecha: Zen Headbutt (Cicuta) -> Unown M (Magic Coat)

    Round 1: The War of the Roses

    Gooooooood evening, ladies and gentlemen! Today's battle in a big bowl of Unown Soup pits Mr. L's band of warriors - Bandit the Roselia, Shoals the Oshawott (you may remember these two from a previous battle I reffed), and Mecha the Beldum, against Gerard's all-girl trio - Katherine the Kirlia, another Roselia named Cicuta, and a shiny Dragonair named Christine!

    The round starts off with our two roses leading the battle - House Lancaster Bandit kicking off by Sporting Water...well, broth, anyway, all over the place, while House York Cicuta conjuring a Sunny Day. Her partner Chris immediately takes advantage of that, letting loose a nasty little Flamethrower that would've been a devastating blow if it weren't for water sport, but still does decent damage. It looks like Bandit's the only pokemon in Mr. L's team with a speed advantage, as Gerard gets another move with Katherine radiating Screens of Light upon her team. Mr. L gets the rest of the action to himself, with Shoals breaking off a piece of the bowl to make a Substitute, and Mecha attempts a Zen Headbutt against York's avatar Cicuta...but misses!

    Mecha leads the next action by grabbing an M-shaped Unown and generating a Magic Coat. Apparently, Cicuta was going to throw some nasty sunlight at Mr. L's team, but Lancaster Bandit ruins her day by negating the clear skies with an Unown-spawned Rain Dance, forcing her to charge her lazer! Chris takes revenge on this humilation by smacking Bandit with a beam of her own - an Ice Beam! And boy, did it do far more damage than flamethrower! Katherine causes a little bit of trouble herself, guiding a Will-o-wisp to sear Mecha...but ends up getting burned instead, thanks to Magic Coat!

    ...Of course, her synchronize ability just burns the Beldum anyway.

    Shoals makes his move in the aftermath, taking the...rather phallic Shell on his groin and slicing up Katherine with its Razor-sharp edges, while Cicuta finally unleashes her Solarbeam on the unsuspecting Oshawott! The rain may have cut its power, but the damage was still enough to wreck that substitute!

    Looks like Gerard has the advantage in terms of HP. So what'll happen next? Stay tuned!

    Just curious if you calc'd the rain into Oshawott's Razor Shell Attack, or took rain's Half-damage effect into Solarbeam.

    Either way, my actions don't change:

    Bandit: Unown D (Dark Void) -> Giga Drain (Katherine)
    Shoals: Razor Shell (Katherine) -> Night Slash (Katherine)
    Mecha: Unown C (Crabhammer) (Katherine) -> Zen Headbutt (Cicuta)

    IF Protect is used by any of their pokemon on A1, then have Mecha replace his action with Unown F (Feint).

    Round 2: Hell hath no fury like a Kirlia who just got cheated on

    Welcome back, ladies and gents! This round turned out to be a hectic one - Cicuta doesn't seem to like the idea of Bandit pulling an Unown-induced Dark Void, so she grabs an Unown of her own to Fake him Out! With the white Roselia unable to act, Christine zaps him with a Thunder Wave, making things even worse for Mr. L's team - even moreso as Katherine throws him around with a Psychic attack! With Gerard's turn over, Shoals and Mecha invoke the power of the rain to terrorize Katherine, in the form of a Razor Shell and Unown-spawned Crabhammer, respectively.

    The little Kirlia has had quite enough of this shit, and Teleports away for the remainder of the round. With Bandit grievously slow from paralysis, this leaves Gerard with the complete initiative, starting with Cicuta slinging a few Magical Leaves at Shoals. But the assault on the ivory Oshawott doesn't end there - Chris seizes a T-Unown with her tail and conjures a grand bolt of Thunder - a surefire hit, thanks to the rain, but not enough to paralyze him! While Mecha scores a decent blow on Cicuta via Zen Headbutt, Shoals and Bandit don't have a Kirlia to attack at the moment!

    With every single attak at it's disposal it's a bit hard, so let's keep it on the offensive to minimize the kind of things that they can do to us, Bandit could be very annoying with all her tricks, but now that we manage to slow her down it's gonna be a lot more manageable, with the rain up Shoals is our main concern, so let's end this quick and painless

    Cicuta: Giga Drain (Shoals) - Extrasensory (Bandit)
    *If Shoals uses Unown P [Protect] or Unown A [Evasive Agility] then Switch A1 and A2
    Christine: Thunderbolt (Shoals) - Ice Beam (Bandit)
    *If Shoals uses Unown P [Protect] or Unown A [Evasive Agility] then Switch A1 and A2

    Katherine: Taunt (Bandit) - Reflect

    Gah, that kinda blows my entire plan out of the water...means I gotta play dirty to manipulate your actions by bypassing your sub...

    Sorry about this...

    Bandit: Shadow Ball (Katherine) -> Unown B (Brick Break) (Katherine)

    Shoals: Unown D (Detect) -> Brine (Katherine)

    Mecha: Unown H (Heal Bell) -> Iron Head (Katherine)
    IF Katherine's fainted by the time you move in A2, use Zen Headbutt on Cicuta

    Round 3: Death of a Kirlia

    Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen! This round turned out to be a real bloodbath - Shoals, sensing impending doom, grabbed a D Unown and Detected any incoming attacks - a wise move, it turns out, as Cicuta andChristine both directed their assault at him in the form of a Giga Drain and a Thunderbolt, respectively! Meanwhile, Katherine spouts some very unladylike language at Bandit, and although he tries to endure, the Roselia ends up falling for her Taunts! This doesn't last for long, though, as Mecha grabs an H Unown and invokes Heal Bell, absolving Mr. L of all his team's status problems! With Bandit's paralysis gone, he smacks Katherine with a Shadow Ball, which although buffered by Light Screen, still does a decent amount of damage.

    Lancaster Bandit, having gained his second wind, smashes Gerard's light screen with an Unown-induced Brick Break, which, of course, doesn't do much damage to the psychic-type. He'd pay dearly for this - Cicuta and the shiny Dragonair focus their attacks on him this time, the former wrecking him with Extrasensory and the latter actually freezing him with an Ice Beam! As Katherine begins setting up a Reflect, Mr. L's ivory otter begins Brining that tenacious Kirlia, doing much more damage thanks to all those wounds! Mecha also contributes to this attack by smashing her with an Iron Head...wait, could it be? Yes! That was just barely enough to take her down!

    It's 1 and 0 Mr. L, but he's far from out of the woods just yet. Find out what happens next after these messages!

    Not the biggest misstep, but not a god one either, still, We can do just as good by destroying Bandit's chance to throw out by using that little unown first, so let's do that in the best way we can, after that a little sun might be nice, even is Shoals is a bit to tired to enjoy it, ant this way we can deal with Bandit next round Extremely Fast

    Cicuta: Unown A [Evasive Agility] - Sunny Day
    Christine: Unown S [Shadow Sneak] (Mecha) - Flamethrower (Mecha)

    PS: Not that it will matter, but Bandit's still taunted

    Round 5: Pride Before A Fall

    Welcome back, ladies and germs! It seems that Gerard didn't bother targeting Bandit at all this round - Although Christine could have taken out the Roselia in a single blow, she aims her Extremespeed attack at Mecha, instead, not doing much damage! This gives Bandit an opportunity to smack Cicuta around with all the strength of his (Unown-spawned) Endeavors. But what about Cicuta herself? Would she put up with Bandit's shit? Apparently so, as she directs her Solarbeam at Shoals, instead! The ivory otter survives, however, and sacrifices himself by blasting Gerard's own rose with an Ice Beam, grievously weakining her. And Mecha? Well, he grabs a V Unown and slams into Cicuta with a mighty V-create, and despite reflect severely buffering the damage, it turns her into a charred husk anyway!

    It's down to just the shiny Dragonair, and Bandit proceeds to wail on her with a Sludge Bomb, poisoning her! This ends up biting Mecha in the...uh...claws later, but for now, Christine fires a nasty little Flamethrower, which sends the Beldum reeling! Mecha then counters with an Iron Head, but the damage is severely reduced, thanks to Bandit accidentally activating Christine's marvel scale. To make matters worse, Shed Skin kicks in and she loses the poison right after.

    Gerard's underestimation of Bandit has stripped him down to his last pokemon, but Mr. L's situation is pretty grim as well. This could turn out either way, folks - stay tuned!

    Bandit: Unown P (Pain Split) (Christine) -> Sludge Bomb (Christine)
    IF Mecha's substitution activates, replace A2 with Leech Seed (Christine)
    Mecha: Unown L (Leech Seed) (Christine) -> Iron Head (Christine)
    IF Christine uses Extremespeed against Bandit, replace A1 with Unown Q (Quick Guard)

    Did the math, and Pain Split takes 30.3333... Energy to pull off, leaving me with one and allowing me to pull off one final attack.

    Round 6: Down to the Line

    Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen! As you'll recall, Cicuta had gone down in the last round, leaving Gerard's Dragonair against Mr. L's two remaining pokemon. In spite of that, Chris has managed to hold her own, opening the round with an Evasive Agility, dodging Mecha's Unown-spawned Leech Seeds, although it wasn't enough to dodge Bandit's last-ditch effort at doing damage through a U Unown in the form of Pain Split!

    Christine tries to smack Bandit with an Extremespeed, but Mecha hastily grabs an Unown and blocks it with a Quick Guard, as the white Roselia that is Bandit performs his final attack, splattering his Dragonair nemesis with a Sludge Bomb before fainting.
    HERESY! *BLAM*

    Mecha used Quick Guard first action and Iron Head on the second. Bandit used Leech Seed in the second action instead of sludge bomb.

    I can say with a fair amount of confidence that this battle will end with the next round. Can Mr. L hold on long enough to withstand the wrath of Gerard?! Find out next time, in the seventh - and probably final - round!

    Sorry, but the sub clearly said A1, nothing on A2 (when the Extremespeed was used) so Mecha should have used Iron Head instead and Bandit should have been eliminated before using Sludge Bomb :3

    I'm afraid the above post is true, though my Roselia would not be KO'd before launching the attack (Pain split pulled through, healing me 25HP; I fainted through energy exhaustion). The only thing that should be rereffed is the fact my Beldum made a blonde move of using Quick Guard early, and A2 should go as follows:

    Bandit: Leech Seed (Christine)
    Mecha: Iron Head (Christine)

    Hope this clears something up for the both of you (Was keeping my mouth shut because it was better for you).

    EDIT: SHIT! I Just realized I never actually posted the calculations, either! On second thought, this'll have to wait until after work; I don't have time to retcon the entire round right now.
