    So I'm coming out of reffing retirement for clearly selfless purposes.

    [​IMG] "Yeah right, you're just trying to Hi Jack! some more rewards."

    [​IMG] "LOL Deck Golurk more."

    I'm glad to see I have my Pokemon's vote of confidence...

    Let's get on to the actual contenders in this match:

    The Royal Guard vs. Matezoide
    A Flash of Titans


    THE RULES​


    4V4 Doubles
    2 Day DQ
    Switch = OK
    All abilities
    All items
    1 Sub per mon
    1 Recover/3 Chills per mon​


    THE ARENA​


    Arena: Gentlemans Ballroom

    This is a grand room that spans over three hundred feet all across in a circle. The ground is made of a solid marble, making digging impossible(also who would trash a classy mans floor) in the very center, the lord of this house has installed a 50 ft across and 50 ft deep pool of crystal clear water(drinking it might even heal you a bit). The outside of the circle is rimmed in black marble pillars and a bit beyond that are extremly tall windows showing a beautiful courtyard. Now to keep things interesting, the lord(ref) may ask the combatants to prefor different feats of skill, or suffer his displeasure.​

    THE ORDER​


    The Royal Guard sends out Pokemon and equips items (if any)
    Matezoid sends out and equips items (if any) then orders attacks
    The Royal Guard responds​

    THE INTRO


    The combatants stand in the Gentleman's Ballroom, a distinct arena from the Gentleman's Bathroom. They prepare for battle. The Gentleman is most amused at all the glaring, long before any battling starts. You have to wonder though, who would open up their house to being destroyed by random strangers? Oh well!

    The Pokemon will start in a neutral zone equidistant from the Courtyard Windows and the Pool, within the circle of black pillars, parallel to each direction. Since the arena is indoors, weather moves will only affect the outside.​

    All right, that is a pretty pool there, lets use it!

    Kethzyal, Dive into the water and go halfway down, then fire some Ice Beams up at your foes!

    Vonlafera- Start by Glaring at Dizzy, then charge up and smack her into the air with an Iron tail, follow through by taunting your airborne foe!

    Kethzyal: Dive(Suspend)-Ice Beam Dizzy, Ice Beam Dizzy

    Vonlafera: Glare at Dizzy, Iron Tail Dizzy into the air, Taunt Dizzy

    BEGIN ROUND ONE:

    NARRATIVE:

    The Pokemon take their positions in the ballroom and prepare for battle. Dizzy tries to ambush Kethzyal with a Sucker Punch, but instead of attacking Kethzyal begins with a defensive action, rushing into the pool and Diving beneath the surface, expending its energy to stay there. Dizzy summarily falls on its face. Max expends his energy creating a swirling wind that enhances the speed of Matezoid's team, a very gentlemanly thing to do. Vonlafera copies its trainers Glare, paralyzing Dizzy.

    With its increased speed, Max jumps the gun in firing a Bug Buzz at Kethzyal. Although the sound does carry through water, Kethzyal's depth causes it to dissipate before doing damage. Kethzyal then emerges from the water and fires an Ice Beam at Dizzy, damaging its foe with no other ill effects. Vonlafera uses its opportunity to bash Dizzy with an Iron Tail, and the hit is so strong that Dizzy staggers and loses defense. Dizzy decides to go on a rampage and Thrashs around, striking the Pokemon that hit it last, Vonlafera with immense damage.

    With its opponent out in the open, Max launches an Energy Ball and strikes Kethzyal for a significant amount of damage. Kethzyal remains focused on Dizzy and fires a consecutive Ice Beam, which drains its energy more than its last attack. Vonlafera, angry at just being smashed by an errant panda, Taunts his foe. Though angered by such an uncouth move in a place as grand as the Gentleman's ballroom, you can't really tell because of Dizzy's continued manic frenzy, which happens to strike Vonlafera a second time with another bone-crunching hit.

    The lord of the manor introduces a challenge for the second round. Outside the windows is an extension of the arena into a courtyard. From the current poolside position it will take an action to get close enough to the windows to break them, and a targeted attack to smash through them (Windows do not require an accuracy check). The windows are only susceptible to physical attacks, and require 10 BAP total to break. The courtyard extension does allow weather moves to have their full effects, but you should beware meeting the Groundskeeper if you stay too long. There should still be some supplies gathered out there. Because of how deep the pool is inside the Ballroom atrium, weather moves will not reach it even if the windows are broken.

    Lord Challenge 1: Break the windows to open the Courtyard extension (requires an action to get there from poolside and 10 BAP of Physical damage (any type). Attacks on Windows do not require an accuracy check. Courtyard has small supplies, weather moves are able to be benefited from, but a Groundskeeper will harass trainers that stay out too long. Weather moves cannot reach the pool because it is too deep inside the Ballroom atrium.

    Lucario: Extremespeed over to the window closest to you and then proceed to use Iron Tail to break it open, then Substitute

    Starmie: Use your natural speed and then, next to Lucario throw up a Light Screen followed by a Protect

    Lucario:Extremespeed(to window)-Iron Tail(break the window)-Substitute(20)

    Starmie:Run to the window-Light Screen-Reflect
    If taunt then Protect and push actions down

    Ok, Dizzy, try to catch up with Lucario and destroy the window he didnt attack. After that, strike him hard.

    Max, stay right in front of Starmie and unleash your Bug Buzz, with some luck, Starmie wont be able to get through you and your attack. Make it sleep to prevent Light Screen and then, hit it hard again.

    ACTIVATE CONTRARY Spinda: Run to window -> Return (Break it) -> Superpower (Lucario)
    If paralised, push-back.


    Butterfree: Bug Buzz (Starmie, stay between Starmie and the window so it cant get there, spread the sound in order to make a ''sound wall'' to make sure the vibrations will stop Starmie) -> Sleep-Powder (Starmie) -> Bug Buzz (Starmie)

    Lucario is a steel type, so Superpower does enough damage to destroy the sub.
    (Thank God for that critical)
    Also, because of STAB, Return breaks the window.



    Dizzy: Shadow Ball (Starmie) -> Shadow Ball (Starmie) -> Shadow Ball (Starmie)

    If Starmie is ordered to use Pain Split A1, change actions to Superpower (Lucario) -> Drain Punch (Lucario) -> Chill

    If Starmie is knocked out, use Superpower (Lucario) that action and Drain-Punch (Lucario) in the following one.



    Max: Stun Spore (Starmie) -> Bug Buzz (Starmie) -> Bug Buzz (Starmie)

    If Starmie is ordered to use Pain Split AND it isnt asleep, use Sleep Powder that action.

    If Starmie is under the effects of a protective/evasive move, use Tailwind that action and push-back
