So I'm coming out of reffing retirement for clearly selfless purposes. "Yeah right, you're just trying to Hi Jack! some more rewards." "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.
