Welcome, welcome to both old friends and newcomers alike! It's time for another exciting battle in the official ASB arena. Man, it sure never gets boring around here! Let's look at our two combatants. In one corner, we have the famed Bastiodon trainer, Leethoof, and his Solrock, Ra! Gen. Empoleon (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Gen. Empoleon (open) Gen. Empoleon (close) Solrock [Ra] (genderless) Nature: Quiet (+Special Attack, -Speed) Type: Rock: Rock STAB; Reduce damage from all special attacks by two (2) Base Attack Power during Sandstorm. Able to use Sand Tomb without losing focus. Psychic: Psychic STAB; less susceptible to blinding, more susceptible to sound-based assaults as far as locking on with Psychic attacks, can lift and throw opponents with Psychic regardless of Special Attack Rank. Psychic-type attacks are not godlike and cannot be used as a catchall for Disabling, Binding, and redirecting opposing attacks. Abilities: Levitate: (Trait) This Pokemon naturally floats above the earth when released or easily takes flight, evading the Ground moves Bulldoze, Earthquake, Fissure, and Magnitude. Earth Power will have three (3) less Base Attack Power. Dig and Dive can strike a Levitating Pokemon if their user is over Size Class 4, has Levitate, is 3.5m or larger, or is a flying type. Otherwise Dig and Dive will miss. Ground moves can still hit. Levitate Pokemon will retain the Levitate trait when they use Skill Swap on an enemy, and will steal the opponent's ability (the user can specify if they want a foe or ally to gain Levitate from a Skill Swap.) If a Pokemon with Levitate uses Role Play, they will copy the opponent's abilities and retain Levitate. Stats: HP: 100 Attack: 3 Defense: 3 Sp. Attack: 3 (+) Sp.

There's absolutely nothing special about him or his Steelix, Boulder! Except they probably couldn't beat a Frozen Vault raid to save their life.

Abilities: Ability 1: Rock Head Type: Innate This Pokemon’s hard body prevents it from taking recoil damage from moves such as Double-Edge, Flare Blitz, and Head Smash. Ability 2: Sturdy Type: Innate This Pokemon’s body is solidly constructed, reducing the Base Attack Power from an opponents incoming attacks by one (1). The effect is amplified on OHKO Moves, which are reduced by ten (10) Base Attack Power. Ability 3: Sheer Force (DW) Type: Can be Enabled This Pokemon can energize all its attacks with secondary effect chances less than 100%. When Enabled, the Base Attack Power of every move with an effect chance less than 100% increases by two (2), but they will never have a secondary effect.
