Hi, what's up? I'm here at the Celadon City Smoke Factory, where...I actually can't see the battlefield very well, since it's covered in thick black smoke. Did you know that CCSE uses only the finest extract of Koffing in their smoke? It's also almost 20% unrecycled materials! Wait, is that really a good statistic? Anyway, the black smoke here is so thick that I...wait, there they are! I've just spotted today's two competitors, who for some odd reason agreed to battle here: Engineer Pikachu and AlphaJolt! They look like they're ready to fight, though I'm not sure how well they can see. Here's a full-ish description of the arena we'll be using today. Arena Description (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Arena Description (open) Arena Description (close) Arena: Smoke Factory This factory manufactures a strange substance: black smoke. This smog is present all over the arena, making it quite hard to see for Pokemon that don't have evolutionary traits that allow them to see; this results in a 15% (flat) reduction in accuracy for Pokemon that are unable to see, regardless of distance. Here are the rules for the battle, courtesy of our two competitors: And, most importantly, these are the Pokemon our two trainers will be using: Engineer Pikachu's Pokemon (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Engineer Pikachu's Pokemon (open) Engineer Pikachu's Pokemon (close) Jiheddo (Zweilous) (F) Nature: Naughty (Attack increased by *, Special Defense decreased by *) Type: Dragon / Dark Dragon STAB; More in touch with legendary or special auras in arenas.

Pokemon with Guts ignore the attack drop from burn. No Guard: (Innate) This Pokemon has an immense confidence from perfecting each of its attacks, giving them all perfect accuracy. Resultingly it feels it can weather every strike, and will not dodge an attack even if ordered to. Only when a OHKO move is issued by the opponent does sense return, and the Pokemon acts normally. Additionally even with their extra skill, the power and exhaustion involved in using OHKO moves prevents them from being benefitted by No Guard, they will have their normal accuracy. Steadfast (DW): (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.
