No Items
Arena: Nabbing one from the Arena Compendium
Arena: Protegas' Sanctuary
Field Type: Neutral
Complexity: Moderate
Format: Multiples, Melee (does not work in singles at all)
Restrictions: Limited Seismic Moves, No Weather, No SolarBeam/Thunder
A 50ft-by-50ft stone temple for the relatively unknown deity Protegas that provides protection to those who seek it. The room is lit by torches that provide ample light. There is a fountain in one of the walls that provides a water source for moves like Surf. The arena is set indoors so weather moves, SolarBeam and Thunder cannot be used. Despite being ancient, the temple still has a relatively strong structure that allows seismic moves like Earthquake, Bulldoze and Magnitude to be used up to 3 times in total (not 3 times each though). The floor can be dug through as well but, because it is made of stone, the energy cost for Dig is increased by 2 for pokemon that aren't rock- or ground-type. Over the centuries, some plant life has broken through the floor, allowing non-grass-types to use moves like Grass Knot.

At the beginning of every round, Protegas will protect any pokemon he feels is being ganged up on. A pokemon is considered to be ganged up on if it is targeted by:
  • At least four enemy single-target moves
  • Three enemy single-target moves and at least two enemy multi-target moves
  • Two enemy single-target moves and four enemy multi-target moves
  • Six enemy moves, whether they are single-target, multi-target or a combination of the two
Note: this is done by the commands issued and stuff like Encore and Disable changing a pokemon's moves will not affect this, but substitutions will. Substitutions cannot be made based on whether or not an opponent's pokemon gets the barrier.

Any pokemon that meets any of those criteria will be given a protective barrier for that round. The barrier is treated as a 20 HP typeless pokemon with the same rank defences as the pokemon it is protecting. The barrier protects the pokemon from all effects of enemy attacks and will disappear once it runs out of HP, is hit by two enemy non-damaging moves or at the end of the round, whichever comes first. The barrier will not protect from any spillover damage (so an attack that does 25 damage will destroy the barrier and do 5 damage to the target). The barrier will not protect a pokemon from allied attacks that hit it, nor will it be affected by allied attacks. A last pokemon standing will always receive Protegas' barrier at the start of a round except in a 1v1 matchup.
Lord Jesseus was victorious here once before, and it looks like he's bringing the same two pokemon as before:

Meanwhile, Arcanite, new to this arena, has brought these three, but which two will he use?


Minccino (M) Moogle

Nature: Naive (+15% Speed, +18% Accuracy, -1 SpD)
Type:
Normal: Normal STAB; adapt comfortably to any surrounding after 3 actions. Able to use Outrage without losing focus.

Abilities:
Cute Charm: (Innate) This Pokemon’s natural cuteness causes Pokemon of the opposite gender in the same egg group to be attracted to it 30% of the time after striking with a contact move.
Technician: (Innate) This Pokemon is more skilled at performing weaker moves, causing any of their attacks that normally have 6 or less Base Attack Power to have their Base Attack Power multiplied by 1.5. (e.g. Aerial Ace goes from 6 to 9, Mach Punch goes from 4 to 6, etc.) The Energy Cost for a one-hit or two-hit attack is increased by one (1). Each hit in a multi-hit move is boosted by one (1) Base Attack Power, and the Energy Cost for multi-hit attacks is increased by two (2). Because Technician is a multiplier on single hit moves, its effect is applied to Base Attack Power before any additive effects.
Skill Link: (DW) (Innate) This Pokemon’s skillfull aim makes its multi-hit moves always hit 5 times. The Energy Cost of multi-hit attacks is increased by three (3).

Abilities:
Overgrow: (Innate) When this Pokemon’s HP is lower than 33% (flat), the Base Attack Power of any grass attack is increased by two (2). (eg Giga Drain goes from 8 to 10, Solarbeam from 12 to 14)
Contrary: (DW) (Can be enabled) This Pokemon's unique structure reverses stat changes it recieves in battle, both from its attacks and the opponents. At the end of the round, stat changes will still increase/decrease toward 0.

So, since Lord Jesseus picked the arena, he sends out first ... but since we know what he's sending out, Arcanite can just send out his two now and give orders. Then Lord Jesseus will give orders and I will ref this.
 
#2
I had an approval post pending with cloud in it, and forgot to lyk. (facepalm)

Sorry Moogle, Today is not your time. Go Cloud and Edge!

Edge, begin with a Taunt on Poliwag, then a Light Screen. Finish up with a Glare on Horsea. If Horsea is already paralyzed, use glare on poliwag. (If this substitution is allowed: If both are paralyzed, use leaf tornado on horsea! if not, don't worry)

Cloud, commence with a discharge. Then use a charge, and then a discharge! If discharge is disabled a3, use dragon pulse on Poliwag.

EDIT: What, no thunder! (Damn that approval post mentioned above that i claimed thunderbolt in)
 
#5
Ok Poliwag, you're the fastest here so let's try to put that Snivy under Hypnosis before it Taunts us. Follow up by attacking Duclohm with Dig, then Encore charge if you can or Dig again if you were Taunted/Paralysed.
Kappa, Ice Beam Snivy, then Disable that dangerous Discharge before Ice Beaming Snivy again.

Facing Kappa the Horsea and Nu the Poliwag are Arcanite's Snivy called Edge and his Duclohm called Cloud Strife. Protegas doesn't see anything wrong and chooses not to intervene. Nu is quick off the mark and stares hypnotically at Edge, causing him to fall into an incredibly long sleep. He's gonna miss the action, but his ally Cloud emits an electrical discharge that shocks everyone else in the arena. It even paralyses the two water pokemon! Kappa, however, is still capable of firing a beam of ice at the sleeping Snivy.

But disaster strikes for Lord Jesseus as both his pokemon are immobilised by the electric shock they received earlier! While Edge continues to sleep, Cloud takes advantage by charging up, ready to dish out more pain.

And the pain comes in the form of another electric discharge while Edge starts to wake up. This time, Nu calls for an encore, flattering Cloud and provoking him into discharging even more! Kappa, meanwhile, fires one more icy beam at the now-awake Snivy, whose innate ability is starting to kick in!

Well this is hardly what Lord Jesseus wanted, though Arcanite was probably hoping for better too. But fate has its way of entertaining itself.

#7
I did say specifically not to Encore if paralysed but oh well...

let's try and get a KO guys. Kappa, keep Ice Beaming Snivy. Poliwag, keep Body Slamming. If it faints, Horsea should continue beaming Cyclohm, but Poliwag should switch to Dig.
 
#9
Lord Jesseus, you effectively made 2 chance substitutions: if taunted and if paralysed. After checking on irc, I'm 99.99% sure that's not legal, so I discarded it.

Anyway, will ref soon.
 
#10
OK, there is a small possibility that Snivy will be the target of all 6 of Nu and Kappa's attacks and there is a small possibility that Duclohm will be the target of 4 of their attacks. Because of this, it is not clear who will get the barrier, so I am ruling that neither pokemon gets it this round.

Protegas looks upon the battle and decides that all is well. Edge puts up a screen of light to protect himself and his ally while Cloud, cheered on by Nu, creates another discharge of electricity that, unfortunately for Lord Jesseus, worsens the paralysis of both of his pokemon! But they're not giving up yet. Kappa fires another beam of ice at Edge while Nu body slams the Snivy. Those attacks combined with his partner's discharge have done enough to knock him out. But Cloud is undaunted.

While the Duclohm emits a pulse of dragon-like energy that knocks Nu down, the Poliwag burrows underground while Kappa fires yet another icy beam at her lone opponent. Shortly afterwards, Nu jumps out of the ground and strikes Cloud, but Cloud had planned for this and he fires one more discharge of electricity, knocking out the two water pokemon and claiming victory for his trainer.

Last time he came here, Lord Jesseus used those two pokemon to defeat two much stronger pokemon over the course of several rounds. This time, he is defeated in just two.
