    Piloswine, let's go!

    Icicle Crash~Reflect~Icicle Crash

    If he uses Detect on the first action, switch to Reflect~Icicle Crash~Earthquake.

    Fine then. Let's play! Seeing as Detect has higher priority, I fail to see how Piloswine wll be able to change tactics. I swear, I've seen it in plenty of battles. So Detect, Screech, then let off an Earthquake!

    And our battle to beat the tournament deadline begins! Guardia the Cubone starts us off by attempting to Detect an oncoming attack, but it looks like the move backfired! Piloswine decided at the last minute to switch tactics and set up a Reflective screen that will weaken Guardia's physical attacks! That's usually a smart move in longer battles, but since the battle won't last too long anyway, was it the right choice here?

    Piloswine doesn't seem to care either way, as he jumps up atop an Icicle he just formed using the moat surrounding the field and Crashes onto Guardia with it! That'll leave a mark! Guardia tries to let out a Screech of pain--it doesn't damage Piloswine, but it does lower its guard somewhat!

    Piloswine focuses its energy, and jumps up in the air! It lands with a loud THUD that sends shockwaves throughout the arena! That's a textbook Earthquake attack! Guardia is knocked back several feet! Undaunted, she gets up and uses her own brand of Earthquake, but it's substantially less effective! I guess the Reflect Piloswine put up was a smart move after all...

    ...Dammit. Guardia, Detect any Icicle Crashes he might try to pull, but never two in a row. For your main actions, just...uh...

    Earthquake -> Bonemerang -> Earthquake

    Our second round starts off quickly, as Piloswine shoots several sharp, pointy Shards of Ice at Guardia! That did quite a bit of damage! Guardia desperately tries another Earthquake attack, once again doing negligible damage to the ice pig! Can she figure something out soon?

    Meanwhile, the frozen pig, as if to show Guardia how it's done, uses Earthquake himself, landing a massive blow! Thinking quickly, Guardia flings her Bone like a boomerang at Piloswine! It hits him on one side going out...and the other coming back! Bonus points to Guardia for the stylish catch, but it won't help her much in this battle!

    As if to drive the point home, Piloswine fires more Ice Shards at Guardia, leaving her on the brink of fainting! She manages to get off one more ineffective Earthquake before she collapses, almost unable to move! She'll have to dig deep and hope for a lot of luck if she wants to come back!

    You forgot to subtract energy from Piloswine, but it's no big deal. It should be at 79-2-2-6=69 (Each Ice Shard is 3-1 for STAB, and EQ is 7-1 for STAB).

    Ice Shard thrice. gg shadowbone.

    A spectacular battle ends rather unspectacularly, as Piloswine simply Ice Shards Guardia into oblivion.
