Please do not post in here if you are not me, Maxim, or Glacier Knight Rules: - 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 - 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. Maxim chose Switch=KO, while Glacier chose Switch=OK. Therefore, it will be decided by coinflip. RNG Roll [1 (Switch=OK)|2 (Switch=KO)]: 2/2 (Switch=KO) Arena: ASB Arena (Move your mouse to reveal the content) ASB Arena (open) ASB Arena (close) Arena: ASB Tournament Arena Field Type: Neutral Complexity: Simple Format: All Restrictions: No Restrictions Description: Surrounded by thousands of screaming Pokemon fans, the ASB Arena can be best described as a standard Pokemon battling arena. In the center of the arena lies a dirt-based floor outlined to show two separate sides (with a white Pokeball center). Surrounding the dirt is a moat filled with water. The moat is about 4.5m wide and creates a perimeter around the dirt arena. The arena itself is 24m wide, 33m long. All moves, weathers, and abilities are legal for the match, since it's an outdoor arena with a large water source and packed dirt. Pokemon must stay in the arena (or the dimensions of the arena in the case of Flying Pokemon, who cannot leave the arena and cannot fly higher than 18m). This prevents Pokemon from injuring the crowd watching the tournament. There are no outside interruptions by fans, Pokemon, or other elements not associated with the current battle.

He knows his true power and can now use his eccentric abilities and brute force to turn the tides of the battle into his favor.

Info on Hazel: Also finding herself in a state of solitude alongside Twila, Hazel yearns to get stronger.

He knows he was made for Offense, so he works on perfecting that, not trying to better something he is not made for. Richter is a blunt, cut-throat pokemon who is fierce when it comes to not only winning a match but protecting his allies. Type: Fighting: (summary) Fighting STAB; ignore weight restrictions of throwing/grappling moves. Superior reaction time in close quarters.

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.

Training solo she now has returned, and is proving to be quite a force to be reckoned with. Her hidden Abilities shine bright, and her Support is bare none the best on the team. And she still yearns for more power...... Type: 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 attacks regardless of weight difference. Psychic-type attacks are not godlike and cannot be used as a catchall for Disabling, Binding, and redirecting opposing attacks. Flying: Flying STAB; immunity to Ground attacks outside extremely odd circumstances even for ground-based flying Pokemon. Enhanced aerial mobility. Superior senses in open air arenas. Abilities: Synchronize: (Innate) Pokemon with this ability mentally link their condition to an opposing Pokemon and pass on any status inflicted on them to their foe.

It's hard to see who has the advantage as of right now. So here's how this works: both Maxim and Glacier Knight are right here with me, and will hand me a slip of paper that tells me the three Pokemon they are going to start with (PM me your choices~). Then, they'll send them out simultaneously, and I'll flip a coin to determine who goes first. Good luck to each of you. Let the battle begin!
