Completed Retro Battling with E_D and Jayjinde

#1
Hello and welcome to Viridian Forest! We have kicked out any and all bug catchers for this event.

This arena takes place in the distant past known as the late 1990s. As such, many mechanics act like they did back then:

There is no physical-special split.
Normal, Fighting, Flying, Ground, Rock, Bug, Ghost, and Poison moves are Physical Moves
Water, Grass, Fire, Ice, Electric, Psychic, and Dragon moves are Special Moves

Dark, Steel, and Fairy types have not been discovered yet. All Dark, Steel, and Fairy type moves are defaulted to normal, unless a good reason is presented for it to be otherwise. All dual typed Dark, Steel, or Fairy type pokemon lose their Dark, Steel, or Fairy typing. All Single-typed Dark, Steel, or Fiary pokemon become normal type unless a good reason is presented for it to be otherwise.

Special Attack and Special Defense are merged into the Special stat, which is determined by averaging a mon's Special Attack and Special Defense ranks and rounding up. Any moves that would boost/lower Special Attack or Special Defense will boost/lower the special stat.

Poison is super effective against Bug, and Bug is super effective against Poison.

There are no abilities, except for Truant, Slow Start, and Defeatest.

There are no changes to partial trapping moves for obvious balance reasons.


The arena:

The forest, located between the cities of Viridian and Pewter, is home to many bug type pokemon as well as the elusive yet always popular Pikachu. There is an abundance of tall grass and trees.
There is no water source
Seismic activity is allowed

Team Jayjinde!

Bugsy (Flygon) (M)
Mild (+SpA, -Def)
Type: Dragon/Ground
Dragon: Dragon STAB; more in touch with legendary or special auras in arenas. Able to use Thrash without losing focus.
Ground: Ground STAB; Immune to all electrical attacks, can Dig through almost any substance, Evasive Digging reduced from 3 per action Energy Cost to 2 per action, superior senses in darkened cave surroundings.

Abilities:
Levitate (Trait):This Pokemon naturally floats above the earth when released or easily takes flight, evading the Ground moves Bulldoze, Earthquake, Fissure, and Magnitude. Earth Power will have three (3) less Base Attack Power. Dig and Dive can strike a Levitating Pokemon if their user is over Size Class 4, has Levitate, is 3.5m or larger, or is a Flying-type. Otherwise Dig and Dive will miss. Ground moves can still hit. Levitate Pokemon will retain the Levitate trait when they use Skill Swap on an enemy, and will steal the opponent's ability (the user can specify if they want a foe or ally to gain Levitate from a Skill Swap.) If a Pokemon with Levitate uses Role Play, they will copy the opponent's abilities and retain Levitate.

One thing is that both Outrage and Dragon Tail are Special moves, not physical. Calcs need to be fixed with that small error, it's only about 2 DMG either way.

Anyways, since I believe I need to send out Bugsy now, I'll do just that!
