    Don't worry, I'll ref normally for the match. (I'm Ferrothorn on Transformice, BTW.)

    As posted, Objection sends out his mon first.

    Well since Spenstar forfeited arena choice to me, I guess that means I send out first. I'm going to go with Shan Yu the Skarmory. His ability will be Sturdy.

    Wonderful. My Mon of choice will be Ruby, the Staryu, with Natural Cure.

    Edit: my bad, nvm. Okay Ruby, here we go! Start with a Harden to raise your defenses against anvil guy. Then I want you to use Thunderbolt, and then, Hidden Power

    OK, I want you to make a 25 HP Substitute, followed by a Swords Dance, followed by a Sky Attack.

    "The match seems interesting-will the powerful Skarmory prevail, or will the Staryu? I can't really tell-guess we're going to have to let the match decide!

    In order to prepare itself for the powerful assaults of the Anvil god, Ruby Hardens itself, its soft echinoderm skin strengthening. Shan Yu simply engages a secret Hun technique that causes a magical Rhydon doll to appear-the Substitute greatly helps him with taking the Anvil god's assaults, which club into Ruby and Shan Yu alike!

    Ruby now readies a general offensive, first launching a blast of hidden power at Shan Yu. His Rhydon doll, infused with Disney villain magic, readily takes the assault. Calmly, he begins to whet his sword-like wings against his body, in a dancing motion. The Anvil god lashes out again, but alas, no dice. He can't hit either of them this round, as he flails upwards, readying another badly coordinated blow.

    Ruby suddenly charges upwards, firing a Thunderbolt at Shan Yu from on high as he readies his own attack...the attack destroys the substitute, but it is only a cover-Shan Yu has climbed to a bizarre height in the meantime, and now he crashes down at the Staryu, wings bathed in harsh light. The Sky Attack ravages Ruby, despite only dealing neutral damage. The Anvil god flails out again, as Ruby ducks, but Shan Yu gets slammed by the leaden tentacles of the beast.

    As both Shan Yu and Ruby await new commands, the Anvil god only spins faster..."

    OK, I think we're in a good position to go on the offensive. Leer at him to lower his defence, then Sky Attack and then Sky Attack again.

    Do a Harden to cancel out Leer, then use Camouflage to blend in with your environment and finish with a Thunderbolt

    "Ruby begins by Hardening itself further; Shan Yu begins by Leering at the Staryu. There is little net effect, and both parties feel somewhat embarrassed. The Anvil god lashes out again, but he only flings himself backwards, anvil arms rotating like the wind.

    Next, Ruby seems to be disappearing-but it's only a trick, as in reality, Staryu is merely Camouflaged. Shan Yu, although he lacks keen eyes for this match, nevertheless picks Staryu out, again performing a massive Sky Attack. It's so powerful that, why, I think Staryu flinched with pain! The Anvil god seems to have some concept of karma, however, and whacks Shan Yu on the behind while ignoring Ruby.

    Shan Yu charges up another Sky Attack at the scared Staryu, before unleashing it on the poor starfish. I think the karma hypothesis is confirmed: the Anvil god again fails to hit Ruby, but cleanly smacks the Skarmory in the wing.

    Ruby is feeling the pain, being reduced to its metaphorical knees, while Shan Yu's energy-intensive Sky Attacks are leaving it slightly drained. Meanwhile, the Anvil god is spinning even faster, ready to clobber some heads off the stage in next round...Either way, time for both trainers to relay orders."

    We can't finish him off before he recovers, but we might be able to finish him off afterwards.

    "Ruby starts off by utilizing electricity's power again, summoning another mighty Thunderbolt, which comes veeery close to nipping Skarmory in the wing joint. However, it fails to do so, and Skarmory simply engages a Swords Dance. The Anvil god seems unable to hit Staryu today, but Skarmory is (again) whacked by the nightmarish Shamanly beast.

    Ruby confidently Recovers, healing scars from the past few rounds and rejuvenating itself. Shan Yu, unimpessed, easily picks out Staryu and delivers another fierce Sky Attack, undoing all her work. The Anvil god thwacks Skarmory again, almost as if it's trying to prevent the inevitable loss this match...

    ...Why is the match an inevitable loss for Ruby? Because Jirachi was feeling villainous today, and Ruby flinched again! Shan Yu easily finishes off the heavily weakened Staryu with a final Sky Attack, releasing a metallic screech as he does. The Anvil God, desperate to hit Skarmory one more time, misses, and a Cannonball Totem from the ref easily knocks the Anvil God into the abyss below.

    It appears Objection and his Skarmory, Shan Yu, have WON!"

    Calcs:

    Staryu vs. Skarmory: 14 damage
    Anvil god vs. Skarmory: 7 damage
    Skarmory vs. Staryu: 22 damage
    Anvil god vs. Skarmory: 7 damage
    Skarmory vs. Staryu: 22 damage. Staryu faints.
    Anvil god misses.
    Ferrothorn, Tortferngatr's Transformice incarnation, goes flavor-crazy and uses a Cannonball Totem against the Anvil God now that the round is over. Over 9000 damage, Anvil god is flung into the abyss. Bubbles appear, the sun begins to shine, and it quickly dawns on the participants that they need to get their prize tokens claimed ASAP for the tourney.

    So yeah. I get 2 RC, each mon gets the bog-standard 1EC/2MC/1DC, and Skarmory additionally gets a KO counter.

    This is the second time Skarmory has beaten an opponent I thought it would have trouble against.

    GG Spenstar and thanks for being such a good ref Tort.

    Admittedly, Sky Attack had a convenient tendency to flinch hax...*notes to buy a Pidove or Murkrow.* I wasn't even taking into account that it had an increased crit rate.
