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: Arena (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Arena (open) Arena (close) 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: 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: 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. RNG (<=500=heads): 392/1000 Dogfish44 sends out a Pokemon and equips items The Wanderer sends out a Pokemon, equips items, and orders Dogfish44 orders I ref Let's go!
