LLLLADIES AND GGGENTLEMEN! CHILDREN OF ALL AGES! UNFORTUNATE POKEMON WHO HAVE TO BATTLE IN THIS ARENA! I BRING YOU... THE DREAD CIRCUS! 3v3 Singles 2 Day DQ 2 recovers/5 chills Arena: Evil Circus Dread Circus (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Dread Circus (open) Dread Circus (close) It seemed like a great idea at the time, to go to the circus to have a good old friendly brawl. But then that damn evil Puppet Master came and ruined all the fun. Drat... but the fight must go on! At the end of each round, the Puppet Master will cast a tricky effect, directly attack both pokemon, or summon a wild pokemon to attack and harass the competitors. He cannot be attack directly, but the Puppet Master's attacks can be defended against. Summary: A traveling circus with an evil Puppet in the background, who will active one of the following effects at the end of each round: Use Wonder Room, use Trick Room, use Magic Room, use a ThunderBolt on all pokemon, use an Ice Beam on all Pokemon, use a Flamethrower on all pokemon, summon a wild Drifblimb to attack, summon a wild Houndoom to attack, or summon a Mr. Mime to attack. Each effect has the same chance of happening (1/9). The puppet master cannot be attacked. No weather is allowed inside the circus tent, and the ground is dig-able. There are also standard items that you would expect to find in a traveling circus, such as large crates and performing pokemon in cages. I heavily encourage the ref to be creative with the crates and caged pokemon; anything from legendaries to explosives to items. Random Fan: Isn't it called the Evil Circus? Ringmaster: What? No- it's... No. It's the Dread Circus. *Whispers* Gengar take that guy out. Gengar: Gar *Uses Hypnosis* And now for the main attractions! In the Left Ring we have the up-and-coming trainer Yoshinite, using his team of... all ghosts. Huh. [/QUOTE] And in the right corner we have Rediamond, legendary trainer and leader of the bug type gym, using a team of... all bugs. Go figure. You know, you guys really aren't helping The Dread get rid of its reputation... Well there you have it, the battlers! Will Rediamond manage to pull off a win with the skill that makes him so great, or will the noobie manage to take the cake thanks to his Ghost types' handy resistance to Bug? Only time will tell... or maybe... THE PUPPET MASTER'S HAND! Order of Ops: Yoshinite sends out mon and equips item. Rediamond send out mon, equips item, and sets commands. Yoshinite sets commands. Etc. etc. etc. yadayadayada you guys should get the rest. Good luck to the combatants, and may the odds ever be in your- *Brick* Gengar: ladies and gentlemen, it appears that the ringmaster is out cold. Fortunately, Bulbapedia says that some Gengar can speak, and apparently I'm one of those that do, so we'll carry on as usual.
