The Pokemon's body structure is immensely dense, doubling its actual weight. Adds two (2) Base Attack Power to all Weight-Based Attacks. Adds Base Attack Power to Gyro Ball equal to half (0.5x) the Pokemon's Weight Class, rounded up.

Abilities:
Keen Eye: (Innate) This Pokemon has extremely good vision and cannot have its accuracy lowered by an opponent through any means (including accuracy lowering attacks, Smogs, Hazes, Fog, etc.). Its attacks are still affected by an opponent’s evasion and the Pokemon's own accuracy.

If an opponent orders their Pokemon to attack after Sableye, that attack will fail. Against another Sableye, the trainer who issues attacks first has precedence and the opponent's attack will fail.

All the particulars are set, let's see who orders first! As per usual, heads will represent the gym Leader while tails will represent the challenger!



And so Gerard will open with his first two Pokemon and their items. Zarator will follow with his two pokemon, their items and their orders, Gerard will order and we'll let the fun begin!

...assuming i can see anything in this pitch dark place...

Another Gym leader has come to me... (I hope this time we can finish this)
I hoped to see Hydreigon tough, but it doesn't change my plans one bit, my mons have been around some unfriendly ghosts and we are not scared of them, this duet should be able to do some pretty good damage to anything that dares to come. Wilde. Yue, the stage is yours for all to see you.

So, Enable everything and let's go!

The moon was so beautiful, and the trainers had eyes only for each other... but we're not here for a romance! Let the dance begin!



Pokemon Trainer Shauntal sends out Ibrandul (Sableye M) and Lathander (Volcarona M)!

Sableye - Fake Out (Darmanitan) - Shadow Claw (Darmanitan) - Payback (Darmanitan)
If Darmanitan uses Dig on A2 or A3, redirect your attacks onto Gallade
If Darmanitan uses Protect on any action, redirect your attacks onto Gallade (but in Fake Out's case change that action to Shadow Ball (Gallade) and push your actions back)
Volcarona - Bug Buzz (Darmanitan) - Hurricane (Darmanitan) - Hyper Beam (Darmanitan)
If either Pokemon uses a damaging Rock-type attack on Volcarona replace your respective action with Fly (Gallade)
If Gallade uses Ally Switch on any action, change your target accordingly to still target Darmanitan.

Mmmm...
I think you have reasons to try and get rid of Yue as soon as possible, but you should never underestimate Wilde, he seems a little left out and I don't like when he's excluded. No time to lose guys, we can't afford to lose this turn.


Expert Belt & Charcoal

Wilde: Thunder Wave (Lathander) ~ Stone Edge (Lathander) ~ Stone Edge (Lathander)

Yue: [Enable Sheer Force] Heat Wave ~ Encore (Ibrandul) ~ Heat Wave

Everything went as planned (wow, that +1 acc sure has been worth it), now that Lathander is dangerously low on health it's time to get rid of her for good, sorry darling but we can't take any risks. Wilde, make sure he cannot scape his fate by any means, meanwhile Yue will continue to spread the flames upon the field. First move is in case she tries to scape, there's only so many ways to cheat on death and we have them all covered, tough it's never bad to prepare even more just in case, afterwards you should focus in the little demon ooking at you with diamond eyes, he's proaby the mon I'm the most worried about, don't let his tricks undermine you.

We can't let something like a little poison slow us down, it would look pretty bad to lose against something we're supposed to be above wouldn't it? Though it woudn't be us if we couldn't find a way though it, that's the fun part.

Wilde: Encore (Ibrandul) ~ Skill Swap [Ibrandul's Pranskter & Wilde's Justified] ~ Encore (Persephone)

Round 3

It appears that our current ref was summoned to try his own luck in getting a gym, so he couldn't continue this. I will be your ref for now on!

The challenger sends out Persephone his Necturna with Big Root equipped. Necturna is a great case of "great stats-poor movepool" problems and is quite predictable if you watch it closely. Sure, predicting it to kick your ass isn't really helping.

Either way, Persephone is the first to attack, using the Fangs on her hands, impued with a strong Poison to bite Yue the Darmanitan. But the Zen Pokemon remained calm and collected and didn't even aknowledged that move!

Sableye tries his hand also attacking Yue with a Poison Jab for...similar results, and Wilde seizes that opportunity to lock Ibrandul on a weak move with Encore. Finally, Yue unleashes a flaming kanji (aka Fire Blast) right at the Sableye for great damage! Things aren't looking good for our challenger.


On the second turn Persephone, sensing great danger, erects a Protective barrier, while Ibrandul continues to attack Yue with Poison Jab, Poisoning the Darmanitan in the process. Finally, Wilde uses Skill Swap to trade his Justified with Ibrandul's Prankster (hahahah a change of hearts) and Yue proceeds to LAY DOWN THE HURT with Heat Wave, partially blocked by Persephone's barrier.

Before the Necturna could even attack, the now Prankster Wilde uses Encore on it and Persephone is forced to try her hand at another Protective barrier...and fails. Ibrandul attacks with Poison Jab for the last time before getting rid of the encore right before Yue LAYS DOWN YET MORE HURT with anotgher charcoal-boosted sheer force Heat Wave.

A challenger has a significant disadvantage to overcome. Since this is doubles it is not entirely impossible to do so, but very difficult for sure.

Round 4​


Seeing how battered Yue is, the Gym Leader decides to call it back, after a job well done, and sends out Kirot the Metagross with Focus Sash to replace it.

On the first turn team Zarator assumes a defensive stance with Persephone using Protect and Ibrandul using Detect. Kinda for naught, as Wilde just chilled and Kirot used Agility to boost its speed. What a boring turn!

On the second turn things get more interesting as Ibrandul pumps up adrenaline on his "veins" to Endure future attacks. Which was a great idea, considering that Kirot smashed it with Meteor Mash a couple moments after that. Meanwhile, the Prankster Wilde puts up a Safeguard just before Persephone tried to burn the Metagross with Will-o-Wisp. The move failed!

Finally, Wilde continues to Chill and Kirot pointlessly attacks Ibrandul again with Meteor Mash, while Persephone strikes hard at Wilde with Shadow Claw, getting a nice Critical Hit and Ibrandul ends this round by using Skill Swap to get his prankster ability back.

The Gym Leader still have a good advantage and it will take some work for the challenger to recover from that. And now the Leader is ordering last, so it will be an uphill battle, for sure!

Necturna: Protect for 7 energy

Sableye: Detect for 7 energy

Gallade: Chill (+12en)

Metagross: Agility for 6 energy

Sableye: Endure for 15 energy

Gallade: Safeguard for 10 energy

Necturna: Will-o-Wisp (Metagross) for 7 energy
But it failed!

Metagross: Meteor Mash (Sableye): nothing for 10 energy
Crit: doesn't matter
Effect: 8 (no)

Necturna: Shadow Claw (Gallade): (7+3+3+3)*1.5 = 24 damage for 4 energy
Crit: 1 (yes)

Gallade: Chill (+12en)

Sableye: Skill Swap: Prankster back for 7 energy
