    The Soldiers of Gaia and The Carnivorous Apples fought hard to get to where they are now, and both Complications and Its_A_Random have no intention of losing now. So, let's see what the battle's going to be like:

    4v4 Doubles
    -All Abilities
    -No Items
    -5 recovers/5 chills
    -2 Substitutions
    -2 Day DQ for battlers
    -2/3 Day DQ for refs
    -Switch = OK (agreed upon by both battlers)

    Inner Focus:

    This Pokemon’s presence fills the air with intense anxiety, and any damaging or status attack launched at this Pokemon costs the opposing Pokemon two (2) more energy to perform.

    "Alright team, let us begin hard & strong! We may have to attack first for a few rounds, but it is for our own good!"

    Utilitand: Earth Power (Optimus) > Earthquake > Earth Power + Earth Power combo (Optimus)
    IF Optimus uses Taunt A1 OR A2, THEN use Taunt (Optimus) on the first instance.
    IF Optimus uses Metal BurstA1 OR A2, THEN use Circle Throw (Optimus) that action.

    motoR: Hidden Power (Optimus) > Volt Switch (Optimus) > Hidden Power (Optimus)
    IF Optimus uses Metal Burst, THEN use Protect that action, pushing actions back IF Volt Switch was subbed, but do not play this substitution on consecutive actions.
    IF Optimus uses Sucker Punch (motoR), THEN use Will-O-Wisp (Optimus) on the first instance, pushing actions back IF Volt Switch was subbed.

    Fans roar. Tge stands shake. Four brief flashes are followed by the appearance of the most powerful creatures known to man. As Complications faces down one of the toughest opponents he's ever encountered, a single bead of sweat rolls down his forehead; his eyebrows creased with concentration. Complication's noble Pokemon; Optimus and Lord Loss, stare down IAR, ready to fight until the end.

    "Lord Loss," Complications says, and Lord Loss turns to face his trainer. "Teach them the meaning of sorrow." If Lord Loss had a mouth to give a sad grin with, he would, but somehow Complications still hears the response: "I never deviated from that plan."
    Lord Loss: Glare (Utilitand)- Wring Out (motoR)- Shadow Ball (motoR)

    "Optimus," Complications says in turn, and Bisharp gives him a quick salute. "Chip away until there's nothing left." Optimus gives a harsh metallic screech in response.
    Optimus: Thunder Wave (motoR)- Fury Cutter (motoR)- Fury Cutter (motoR)

    Let's see here, we've got a Bisharp called Optimus and a Revenankh called Lord Loss fighting for Complications, while Its_A_Random has chosen a Fidgit called Utilitand and a Rotom in a lawnmower called motoR.

    The combined efforts of Optimus and Lord Loss paralyse the opponents: motoR is overloaded with electricity now thanks to a Thunder Wave while Lord Loss' Glare has paralysed Utilitand with fear. This is only for a fleeting moment though as Utilitand calls upon the Earth Power to pulverise Optimus and motoR unleashes its Hidden Power to supplement the attack.

    Optimus then charges in with a powerful Fury Cutter, severely injuring motoR. motoR's plight is worsened when Lord Loss tries to Wring Out the Rotom and separate appliance and possessor. Seeing that the situation is not good, motoR zaps Optimus with a bolt of electricity and then Volt Switches away. In doing so, it evades the sudden Earthquake caused by its ally. Lord Loss and Optimus are less fortunate.

    Suddenly, the excess electricity in motoR causes it to spasm out of control! It won't be doing anything useful in that state. The sudden involuntary movements aren't even enough to throw off another Fury Cutter from Optimus and a Shadow Ball from Lord Loss. Utilitand, on the other hand, has just about had enough and conjures a Super Earth Power that nearly annihilates Optimus! But before the Bisharp falls, Its_A_Random recalls his Rotom and contemplates who to send out in its place.

    Incorrect; Because of Volt Switch, I order first this round. Quote: "The Pokemon that is switched in to replace the user is chosen by the player from their remaining Pokemon, however the trainer that commanded Volt Switch must attack first. A Pokemon switched out with Volt Switch can switch without initiating a Switch Phase, but only Pokemon that used Volt Switch, Teleport, or U-turn can be swapped out."

    Utilitand: N/A > Safeguard > Acrobatics (Lord Loss)
    IF
    Optimus uses Taunt (Utilitand) A1, THEN use Acrobatics (Lord Loss) A2, AND use Earth Power (Lord Loss) A3.
    IF Lord Loss uses Bide A2, THEN use Substitute (15 HP) A3.

    Capers: Earth Power (Optimus) > Sky Attack (Lord Loss) > Acrobatics (Lord Loss)
    IF Lord Loss uses (Paralysis Inflicting Move) (Capers) A1, THEN use Taunt (Lord Loss) A1, AND push actions back.

    As Complications watched the drama before him unfold, his expression did not change. He was not doing nearly as badly as gene could have been, and he even gotten chance to hear IAR's strategy first again. As he looked at his panting Pokemon, he frowned. Optimus was sure to faint. Complications gaves a weak smile, and said, "You did great Optimus. Let's go out with a bang.

    Dear Complications,

    You sent out Frenzy the Gengar, who does not know Ice Beam or Aurora Beam. As a result, you will be required to re-order, and since you ordered first, Its_A_Random will also be required to re-order.

    Sincerely yours,

    To assist Lord Loss, Complications sends out Frenzy the Gengar. The two ghosts focus their attacks on Capers. However, Utilitand encourages Capers to go After You and, before Frenzy and Lord Loss can hit with their Hidden Power and Shadow Ball attacks, Capers Digs underground. Once the coast is clear, he strikes Lord Loss from underground before charging up a powerful attack. Utilitand demonstrates stunning Acrobatics despite his paralysis, and Lord Loss is hurt badly by the spinning. Frenzy lands a Giga Drain on Capers, but all that excess vitality just dissipates before the Gengar can get a hold of it. Lord Loss cracks a Power Whip, striking Capers hard, but not hard enough. The Gliscor unleashes a powerful Sky Attack that knocks Lord Loss out! Frenzy attempts to avenge his comrade with a Hidden Power, but more encouragement from Utilitand for Capers to go After You causes the Gliscor to Dig and avoid the incoming attack. Frenzy knows what happens next and tries to float away from Capers' attack, but Capers' mastery of airborne movement ensures that his attack hits.

    Can Complications pull off an epic comeback? Or has Its_A_Random got this in the bag?

    "Sleast, come in for Capers! This should not be too difficult..."

    Initiating Switch Phase
    Capers OUT
    Sleast IN
    Complications has no reserve


    Utilitand: Gravity > Chill > Earthquake (Synchro if possible)
    IF Frenzy uses Hypnosis, THEN use Taunt (Frenzy) on the first instance (i.e. Only do this once), pushing actions back.
    IF you suffer from Full Paralysis, THEN push actions back.

    Sleast: Sandstorm > Earth Power (Frenzy) > Earthquake (Synchro if possible)
    IF Frenzy uses Giga Drain (Sleast), THEN use Mirror Coat that action, pushing actions back.

    With the new rules that have been placed, I'll be posting for Comp.

    I cannot at this moment because I have to get some work done. I should be done around 3-4 this afternoon. Please don't DQ Comp just yet. I know that today is the last day before DQ.

    Edit:

    Soundwave: Psychic (Utilihand)* ~ Ice Beam (Utilihand) ~ Psychic (Utilihand)
    *use psychic to throw Utilihand into Sleast to hopefully prevent it from using Sandstorm
    Frenzy: Shadow Ball ~ Hidden Power ~ Shadow Ball (All at Utilihand)

    In future, if you're adding actions to an already-existing post, could you bump the thread so I know it's ready to be reffed?

    Complications plays his last card: Soundwave the Starmie. It looks like he is hoping that his team's speed will be enough to make a comeback. Its_A_Random does not seem concerned about speed as he withdraws Capers and sends out a fresh pokemon: Sleast the Gastrodon.

    Soundwave begins by flashing a bright light at its opponents, blinding them briefly. Utilitand responds by increasing the Gravity in the arena, making it harder for everyone to evade incoming attacks. He is then picked up by Soundwave using its Psychic powers to throw him towards Sleast, but Frenzy's Shadow Ball strikes a weak spot on Utilitand and sends him spiralling off in a completely different direction! Sleast, puzzled by what just happened, summons a raging Sandstorm to buffet his opponents. The sand seems to be unlocking some hidden strength in the Gastrodon too.

    Utilitand is in no condition to retaliate just yet, so he Chills out while Soundwave and Frenzy "help" with an Ice Beam and his Hidden Power respectively. This "help" results in Utilitand fainting! Sleast is not amused and he calls upon an Earth Power to strike Frenzy from below. The Gengar tries to float out of harm's way, but the intense gravity has made this impossible!

    Soundwave's Psychic powers and Frenzy's Shadow Ball continue to harm the fainted Utilitand while the Gastrodon causes a huge Earthquake that, once again, Frenzy cannot seem to evade. Now Its_A_Random has to choose who to send in in place of Utilitand. Is this a sign of good things to come for Complications? Or is he doomed to defeat?

    KS never made a KO Substitution to redirect attacks upon fainting, as a result, Gastrodon should be at fulll HP.

    As far as I am aware, there is no rule for how to handle the absence of a "If X is KO'd, redirect to Y" substitution and it is up to the ref to decide whether the attack should be automatically redirected or if it should simply not hit anyone. If you could show me where an official ruling has been made on the matter, then I will reset Gastrodon's HP to 110.

    EDIT: Thank you for the VM. Gastrodon is back to full health.

    ^ It I much appreciated.

    No time for theatrics.
    Frenzy: Giga Drain (Sleast)-Hidden Power Ice (Capers)-Giga Drain (Sleast)
    If Sleast uses Protect A1 change actions to (Hidden Power Capers)-Giga Drain (Sleast)-Giga Drain (Sleast)

    Soundwave: Ice Beam (Capers)-Psychic (Sleast)-Ice Beam (Capers)
    If Capers uses Protect on any action, change that action to Psychic (Sleast), unless Sleast is also using Protect during that action, in which case sub that action for Recover.

    Actually Illuminate's effect only lasts for 6 actions because of how broken a permanent -1 accuracy would be.

    Reffing coming later.

    Its_A_Random is confident that Capers can finish the job. But before he tries, he uses his Agility to evade an incoming Ice Beam from Soundwave. Frenzy sees a chance to hit Sleast where it hurts and profit from it with a powerful Giga Drain, but he wasn't prepared for the Gastrodon's Mirror Coat reflecting the attack back at him with more than enough power to bring him down.

    In a desperate attempt to save face, Soundwave uses its Psychic powers to knock Sleast silly while Capers gathers energy for a powerful attack. The attack goes off without a hitch, but it does nothing to prevent Sleast from unleashing an Earth Power. The blast from the ground knocks the Starmie momentarily into the air despite the intense gravity, and it is at that moment that Capers unleashes a Sky Attack to knock Soundwave back into the ground.

    Capers follows up by striking with Quickened Acrobatics. This, however, leaves him open to Soundwave's Ice Beam. The ray of frost deals heavy damage to the Gliscor, but it is too little too late as Sleast's Super Earth Power finishes off the Starmie, resulting in Complications' defeat.
