    Flamestrike vs. King Serperior!
    -3v3 Singles / 4v4 Doubles / 5v5 Triples (Positioning OFF)
    -ASB Arena
    -All Abilities
    -No Items
    -5 recovers/5 chills
    -2 Substitutions
    -2 Day DQ for battlers
    -2/3 Day DQ for refs (explained later)
    -Self-KO clause; in the event of a double KO to end the match, the Pokemon that KOed itself through whatever means (self-KOing move, energy exhaustion, etc) loses.
    -Each player tells the ref whether they would rather play Switch=KO or Switch=OK. If both players agree then that rule is chosen; otherwise, a coinflip is used to determine what the switch rules will be.
    -Players send out their first Pokemon simultaneously via PM. First order is decided via coinflip.

    "Our contestants have sent their representatives! Now, please give your consideration to the matchup of Shockstrike the Cyclohm, of Flamestrike's Apples, versus Firestorm the Pyroak, of King Serperior's Soldiers! This is fairly two-sided, I'd say! Now, the coin toss that initiates our round...!"

    "That's that! Flamestrike will order first! Both battlers have chosen SWITCH OK, so there will be no issues here!"

    Brandon walked into the ASB Arena for his Round 2 match. After fighting Pokemon in the first round that weren't yet fully evolved, now he was in it for real. While his opponent was still relatively new to ASB, his Pokemon were decently trained and he definitely couldn't be underestimated. Still, he hadn't come here to lose.

    "Alright Shockstrike, let's show them how we roll! Give us the weather advantage with a Rain Dance, then strike hard with a Hurricane! Finish off with a Weather Ball! If he tries to set up a Leech Seed on you and you don't already have a Substitute to block it, then make yourself a 15 HP Substitute and pick up where you left off!"

    Summary:
    Rain Dance -> Hurricane -> Weather Ball
    If he uses Leech Seed and you don't have a Substitute use Substitute (15 HP) and push actions back

    Good morning, gentlemen. I'm EndQuote and I'll be your subref today...

    Round One Start!
    As the battle begins, both sides send out their CAP-created Pokemon. On one side, a Pyroak roars in defiance, aiming his arm cannons skyward. On the other, a Cyclohm crackles with electricity, all three heads focused and ready. The Tournament has been fun, but it's time for one trainer to be eliminated. Neither side looks ready to go home...

    Shockstrike the Cyclohm kicks things off by spinning in a crazy Dance, heads weaving wildly, altering barometric pressure to summon Rain. It's a good thing the spectators brought umbrellas! Looking distinctly unhappy in the new weather, Firestorm the Pyroak tries to hide behind a Substitute, but gets soaked anyway.

    Fooled by the replica Pyroak, Shockstrike launches a powerful Hurricane at the Substitute! The powerful winds rip it to shreds, but Firestorm is unharmed! The Pyroak, slamming his feet into the muddy terrain, calls on the Power of the Earth to launch a seismic attack at Shockstrike! The Cyclohm is knocked off his feet, landing in a puddle with a splash!

    Spitting water and defiance, Shockstrike struggles upright and looks skyward. Using the power of the rain, the Cyclohm launches a Weather Ball directly at Firestorm! Unable to dodge in time, the Pyroak is nailed by the rain-boosted attack! Angrily, he calls upon his STAB and summons a massive Inferno, but rain and resistance means it merely glances off Shockstrike's hide. A shimmering shield of dust prevents the attack from inflicting a burn, too!

    As the round closes, neither battler is giving in. The rain, like the battle, is intensifying, but both storms are far from over!

    And of course I would forget about Shield Dust. Oh well.

    This is a really bad matchup, so I'm switching to Nidoking.

    Arena: Rain (3r)

    Round Two Start!
    As the second round starts, both battlers recall their respective 'mons and send out Ground-types! On one side, a Nidoking roars defiance at the sky. On the other, a Golurk stands silently, awaiting orders. The rain shows no sign of stopping, but neither side gives it any thought.

    King, seizing initiative, charges forward and unleashes a strong Ice Beam! The Sheer Force of the attack nearly knocks Shadowstrike to the ground! Struggling upright, the ever-silent Golurk slams the ground, knocking King back with a powerful Earthquake!
    Angrily picking himself up, King spins forward into a Sucker Punch, only to be slammed again by a second Earthquake!

    As the rain pours down, King unleashes a final Ice Beam, this one striking critically out of desperation. Relentlessly following his orders, Shadowstrike again uses Earthquake, knocking King away!

    As the round ends, King seems far more injured than Shadowstrike, but can the plucky Nidoking turn this battle around? Only time will tell!

    Round Three Start!
    As the third round begins, the two behemoths continue to spam powerful attacks, earth shaking around them. Hold onto your hats, folks!

    King, the Nidoking, roars in defiance as he unleashes a final Ice Beam! Displaying no emotion, Golurk silently slams once more into the ground, creating a final Earthquake that KOes King! The Automaton Pokemon nods in recognition of a fallen foe, then turns away, oblivious to the cheering of the crowd.

    Round Four Start!
    As the fourth round begins, the rain continues to poor down. Sadly, King the Nidoking's crumpled form is withdrawn, and Pyroak is again sent out into the storm! Switching to face him, once more, is Shockstrike the Cyclohm!

    Spitting defiance and rainwater, the Cyclohm unleashes a massive Hurricane, using the power of the storm to launch it accurately! Reeling from the blow, the Pyroak slams his arms into the ground, channeling seismic forces to fire a powerful Double Earth Power Combo!

    As Firestorm cools off from the combo, Shockstrike continues to ruthlessly spam Hurricane, knocking the Pyroak off his feet!

    Pressing his advantage, Shockstrike fires a final Hurricane, but Firestorm isn't through yet! The Pyroak retaliates with a final Earthpower before slumping to his knees, exhausted...

    As the round ends, so does the rainstorm, bringing sunlight back to the arena, but it isn't enough to lighten the battlefield. Both sides are exhausted, but only time will tell the victor...

    Eh well, that did a lot of damage, let's see if we can't figure something out here.

    Leech Seed~Earth Power~Chill
    If a Substitute is up A1, then use Synthesis~Chill~Earth Power
    If Double Team, then Lava Plume and push actions back, but only do so twice.

    Round Five Start!
    Moving quickly, Shockstrike the Cyclohm darts forward and unleashes a final Dragon Pulse, KOing Firestorm the Pyroak!

    The Soldiers automatically send out their final poke, a Lucario, who, despite a large disadvantage, refuses to give in!

    Calculations (open)

    Action One:
    Shockstrike used Dragon Pulse!

    9+3+(5-2)*1.5=16.5
    16.5 Damage (KO)
    -6 energy (STAB)
