Gym Roaming into a charged fence: Leader Dogfish44 vs. Challenger The Wanderer

Status
Not open for further replies.

Hmmmm, I haven't reffed a Singles gym match yet; I wonder how different the dynamics will be. Also, it will be interesting to see how yet another leader battles in his own territory. Dogfish44, upon sight of the challenger, smirks, obviously feeling very cocky. The Wanderer, ready to go with his best, looks quite eager to do his best, not having any worries of consequences for losing. Now, let's take a look at the rules and arena:

3v3 Gym Singles (Challenger PMs the Referee 3 Mons, the Leader PMs 6)
1 Day DQ (Player)
3 Day DQ (Referee)
Banned Moves: N/A
Restricted Moves: Max 5 Chills Per Pokemon ; Max 2 Recovery Moves per Pokemon ; Restricted moves as per Arena
Arena: Bolt Beach
Switch: OK
Items: ON
Abilities: ALL
Substitute Orders: 2
Arena: Bolt Beach
A 120 * 100 * 100 Room, Bolt Beach is an artificial haven. Above the arena is a glass dome, where spetators watch, whilst trainers have podiums to issue commands from elevated podiums at opposite ends of the arena. Bolt Beach is mainly a bright yellow sand, and a dark yellow water. There are a few palm trees, although they give off a slight green glow.

Features:

- Electricity in the sand means that electric types all learn Charge, and the effect lasts for 9 actions.
- The sand reduces the BP of Seismic attacks by 1, and lower's dig's priority on tunneling down to -0.5.
- Attacks which require natural sunlight cannot work.
- Attacks which cannot work in an artificial environment do work, but paralyse the user 5% of the time as if hit by Thunder Wave, since the "Nature" is electric.
- Nature Power is treated as Shock Wave.
- There is a constant rainfall in the arena, which cannot be changed.
- Mud Sport is washed away at the end of each round.


This is all quite beautiful, especially considering it's so artificial and electrified. It truly is a place for Electric Pokemon to thrive; how will the challenger fare in such a situation? Anyway, these are the teams.

First, Dogfish44's team:

Type:
Electric: Electric STAB; 50% reduction in paralysis chance from other electrical attacks, perfect accuracy and 30% chance of Protect breaking Thunder during Rain. Superior senses in power plant environments.

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.

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.

Is this the first gym battle with a leader's bench of 6? I think it is. Anyway, this is quite a built team; everything seems to be at or near completion. Here is The Wanderer's team:
The Wanderer said:
Let's do this!

Lucario(*) [Rico] (Male)
"See, this is one of the laws of the universe. You know, atoms make up all matter, gravity pulls things down, Rico'll tear you a new one, stuff like that."
The Kumar to the wanderer's Harold (or is it the other way around?). Hot-headed and hotter-blooded, Rico is a devout follower of the rule of cool...seriously, why else would he wear that scarf?

Nature: Naughty (+1 atk, -1 SpD)
Type: Fighting/Steel
Fighting: Fighting STAB; ignore weight restrictions of throwing/grappling moves. Superior reaction time in close quarters.
Steel: Steel STAB; immune to Sandstorm, highly insusceptible to toxic attacks, but can be corroded specifically by Acid and Acid Spray, can be magnetized. Superior senses in high-metal environments like construction sites or factories.

Abilities: Inner Focus, Steadfast, Justified (DW)
Inner Focus: (innate) When an opponent attempts to flinch this Pokemon, it stands firm and continues its attack. If it has another ability that would be activated by flinching, that ability activates.
Steadfast: (innate) If this Pokemon is flinched, it becomes aware of the speed difference and increases speed by one (1) stage to make up the difference. This speed boost is maintained at the end of each round.
Justified (DW, unlocked): (innate) This Pokemon's body reacts to dark energy, invigorating its passions. When hit by a Dark-type move, the Pokemon's attack will increase one (1) stage. A boost gained this way by another Pokemon's attack will be maintained at the end of each round. Self-targeted attacks do not maintain boosts.

Hydreigon [Lucius] (Male)
"<I am not a barbarian, gentlemen. I'll have you know I enjoy the finer things in life. Like Vivaldi. Or sipping a fine wine. Or dining on the mangled head of that lillipup I just killed.>"
Classy, affable, and truly depraved, Lucius is as valuable to his teammates as he is reviled. Now that I think about it, how DID he get into the wanderer's team, anyway?

Nature: Serious (no effect on stats)
Type: Dragon/Dark
Dragon: Dragon STAB; more in touch with legendary or special auras in arenas. Able to use Thrash without losing focus.
Dark: Dark STAB; immunity to all telepathic and telekinetic attacks, better performance in all darkened and especially twilight conditions. Can use any Dark-type attack regardless of Attraction.

Abilities: Levitate
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.

Gallade [Quass (AKA 'The Paladin')] (Male)
"<The blood of the wicked shall flow like a river!>"
A Gallade the wanderer caught en route to the ruined Tower of Heaven, then just a Ralts. Although valiant, he's also lawful stupid, and his intolerance of even the slightest of infractions has led to butting heads with his teammates from time to time.

Nature: Hardy (no effect on stats)
Type: Psychic/Fighting
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. Psychic-type attacks are not godlike and cannot be used as a catchall for Disabling, Binding, and redirecting opposing attacks.
Fighting: Fighting STAB; ignore weight restrictions on Circle Throw, Seismic Toss, Sky Drop, Storm Throw, Submission, and Vital Throw. Superior reaction time in close quarters.

Abilities: Steadfast, Justified (DW)
Steadfast: (Innate) If this Pokemon is flinched, it becomes aware of the speed difference and increases Speed by one (1) stage to make up the difference. This Speed boost is maintained at the end of each round.
Justified (DW, Unlocked): (Innate) This Pokemon's body reacts to dark energy, invigorating its passions. When hit by a Dark-type move, the Pokemon's attack will increase one (1) stage. A boost gained this way by another Pokemon's attack will be maintained at the end of each round. Self-targeted attacks do not maintain boosts.

These are certainly no weak Pokemon, but the leader doesn't seem the least bit afraid. After all, a win will not be easy in a place designed for Electric Pokemon when The Wanderer has brought no Ground Pokemon.

And here we are, at the coin flip. As always, I have a quarter ready just for this. Heads, Dogfish44 sends out first, tails, The Wanderer.

The two dragons are out on the field, and Dogfish44 seems incredibly cocky. Will he stay this way? Who knows... Lucius starts the match off by flying around Nimbus and shouting profanities in Pokemon speech at Nimbus (I think there was something about Nimbus' mother in there; that ain't cool). Nimbus is thus so infuriated that he finds himself unable to do anything other than attack The Wanderer's team. He replies by firing off a wave of dragony energy at Lucius. Lucius also decides to take the offensive route now, roaring aggressively and causing the sand underneath Nimbus' feet to spread apart, and a powerful light shines up from the crack, injuring Nimbus a bit. Nimbus hardly seems bothered, repeating the same move he just used, shooting a big blast of energy from his mouths. At this point, Lucius appears a tad defeated, but of course not giving up yet, as the battle has just begun. However, he does dash towards Nimbus, slam into him, and fly back as fast as he can back towards The Wanderer. This is sort of an odd choice in strategy, since as the official rule-book states, he must order his Pokemon first next round as well. Before Lucius can reach his master and his the safety of his Pokeball, Nimbus expends great effort into roaring into the sky, causing some meteors to come crashing down in Lucius' path, ultimately making Lucius suffer quite a bit before The Wanderer can help him. Nimbus will not be able to attack with full force next round, but will Dogfish44 compensate by taking advantage of ordering second once again? Probably... but we will have to wait and see what happens.

Quass has been dragged out now, with long, thin claws, which will hopefully interfere with some of the pesky speed-ties. Quass starts summoning a transparent, pink wall of energy in front of The Wanderer's side of the field. At the exact same time, Nimbus roars at the sky again, this time bringing a large bolt of lightning towards Quass. The pink shield is finished just moments before the lightning strikes Quass; the shield significantly weakens the attack, causing it to do very little damage. Quass runs up to Nimbus, slashing and clawing with his arms and fancy claws. However, as Quass hits Nimbus with a final cut, Quass seems to be electrified, and is now mildly paralyzed. Nimbus, not bothered at all, makes an even louder and mightier battle cry than before. Suddenly, a tremendous hurricane comes from above the dark water, flying at Quass. The mass of wind, water and electricity is hardly slowed down by the protecting wall of energy, smacking Quass with great force. Nimbus has to sit still for a minute to recover from exerting himself so much. Nimbus' idleness costs him nothing, however, because Quass also cannot move, but due to the electric shock pulsing through his body. Dogfish44's lead is increasing; will it slow down? Will he switch out so that Nimbus can have a break?

Quass, despite being paralyzed, uses his long claws to fling himself towards Short Fuse very fast. Quass follows up by doing a slow, mesmerizing dance, while telepathically communicating in some way with Short Fuse, who just ignores the whole scene. Short Fuse simply dashes at Quass, tackling him with full force, hurting both Pokemon in the process. Short Fuse takes it down a little notch by charging up his hand with extra electricity, then punching Quass as hard as he can. Quass tries to reply with a blue, ghostly flame headed towards Short Fuse, who ultimately dodges the hindering fire. Short Fuse once again throws himself at Quass in an all-out tackle, even damaging himself. Quass and The Wanderer are so far very unhappy with this round, for they have not done anything at all but take damage, due to mis-orders and just getting unlucky. Quass tries to compensate as much as he can by punching Short Fuse in the gut, draining him of vitality, channeling it up into Quass. Dogfish44 has done a good job of maintaining his advantage so far, let's see if it continues.

Dogfish44, being very calculating, commands Short Fuse to shoot a ball of electrical energy at Quass. It hits a weak spot, and hits Quass to the ground, leaving him unconscious. The leader now having a solidified advantage, The Wanderer may now have an even more difficult time reversing his fortune.

Rico is now out on the field, and he seems like a Pokemon that can really pack a punch. Rico makes his first move by stomping on the ground repeatedly with powerful legs, shaking the whole arena, but the sand absorbed some of the shock before it hit Short Fuse. Short Fuse absorbs the energy used to attack him, and then transfers it all into his hands, leaping at Rico and hitting him with the force of the seismic attack and more. Short Fuse follows up by using his two tails to charge up a bolt of electric energy and launches it at Rico. Undaunted, Rico punches him, and uses the finesse of his aura to absorb some of Short Fuse's energy. Rico sees that this is his opportunity to do something big, so he lets out a mighty roar and stomps on the ground with far greater power than before. The ground shakes so much that despite the sand softening the attack, Short Fuse is entirely knocked unconscious. Dogfish44 does not look happy that the KO count is now even, although he knows he still has the upper-hand.

Oh no, Boltair is on the field, and I can already feel the lack of offense coming... Boltair starts off immediately by applauding Rico, encouraging him to repeat what he just did. However, Rico is currently far too exhausted, so he just rests for a moment. Boltair takes some of his health and vitality to create a tiny replica of himself, to take attacks for him. Rico once again, as Boltair requested, stomps very powerfully on the ground, causing the whole arena to shake a ton. Unfortunately for The Wanderer, Boltair was unaffected, simply flying above the ground the whole time. Boltair now makes fun of Rico for being so foolish as to listen to her. Rico is so enraged that he can do nothing but attack Boltair; however, he is too tired for now, and so he must rest. Dogfish44's advantageous position has been steadily increasing, and it's really looking quite impossible for The Wanderer to win at this point.
