    The ASB Tournament Arena

    Surrounded by thousands of screaming Pokemon fans, the ASB Arena can be best described as a standard Pokemon battling arena. In the center of the arena lies a dirt-based floor outlined to show two separate sides (with a white Pokeball center). Surrounding the dirt is a moat filled with water. The moat is about fifteen feet wide and creates a perimeter around the dirt arena. The arena itself is eighty feet wide, one hundred feet long. All moves, weathers, and abilities are legal for the match, since it's an outdoor arena with a large water source and packed dirt. Pokemon must stay in the arena (or the dimensions of the arena in the case of Flying Pokemon, who cannot leave the arena and cannot fly higher than sixty feet). This prevents Pokemon from injuring the crowd watching the tournament. There are no outside interruptions by fans, Pokemon, or other elements not associated with the current battle.

    All right, let's get control of this battle from the start! n.n

    UHh this is simpler than i thought. You're faster than that annoying ttar, so start off by Biding. Take the Snarl, Screech, and then hold it in just a bit longer on the last action to take that EQ as well and launch it back. If you need to use more energy to do so, that's fine.

    Bide ~ Bide ~ [slow] UNLEASH BIDE

    We stand here for another first round battle of CAP ASB's first ever tournament! We have Venser facing off against LupusAter, in what is sure to be an exciting and intense match. Venser chooses his Pokemon first, and sends out Swell the Cyclohm and LupusAter responds by sending out Thrym the Tyranitar. Thrym appears on the battlefield in a flash of light, when his ability, Sand Stream, kicks in, summoning a massive sandstorm.

    Swells seems to be Biding her time, as she becomes engulfed in a white aura. I'm not completely sure what is happening here. Thrym, on the other hand, doesn't seem to care what his opponent is doing and she begins to Snarl at her. This snarl lowered Swells' Special Attack, but the White Aura only seems to be getting stronger. Thrym then begins to Screech at the Cyclohm, slightly lowering her Defense, but the aura still remains. Thrym begins to stomp on the ground. The ground then begins to rumble as if there was an Earthquake. The ground ruptures from underneath Swells, but the aura just appears to be getting larger and larger. Swells then releases the aura, and it goes pulsing throughout the entire arena. The force of the attack sends Thrym tumbling backwards. Although he is quick to get back on his feet, Thrym clearly took a large hit.


    Calcs (open)
    Swells:
    Bide = [64 Damage] [38 Energy]

    Thrym:
    Snarl - 6+3+(3-3)x1.5 = [9 Damage] [4 Energy]
    Screech = [6 Energy]
    Earthquake - [10+(5-3)x1.5+(6-5)x1]x1.5+1x1.5 = [23 Damage] [7 Energy]

    Thrym begins to charge his opponent. Swells sees that he is ready to attack, and uses Bide again. Thrym bares his Fangs as they begin to spark with electricity. He then bites down on Swells, and a crack of Thunder erupts through the sky. Thrym notices that the white aura surrounding Swells has gotten stronger, so he decides to wait it out and begins (Dragon) Dancing. The aura still remains, so Thrym decides to continue boosting his stats with Dragon Dance. Swells releases the energy, and it blasts towards Thrym. The energy was so weak that Thrym barely felt anything and began laughing at his opponent.

    Then appears a strange creature that really has no business being in CAP ASB. THE TIME WIZARD!!!
    [​IMG]

    Time then rewinds back to the beginning of the round. We see Thrym charging in for a Thunder Fang, but rather than a white aura surrounding Swells, she begins to Dance. Rain then begins to fall, cutting through the now subsiding sandstorm. Swells takes advantage of the rain and launches a Hydro Pump, that rocks Thrym. Thrym was so inspired by Swells' dancing, that he just had to (Dragon) Dance himself. Wanting to keep the dance party going, Thrym continues to use Dragon Dance. Swells just decides to Slack Off, while Thrym is dancing in the rain.

    Swells:
    Rain Dance = [10 Energy]

    Slack Off = [+20 HP] [13 Energy]

    Thrym:
    Thunder Fang - [7+(5-3)x1.5+(6-5)x1]x0.44+1x1.5 = [6 Damage] [6 Energy]
    Dragon Dance = [7 Energy]
    Dragon Dance = [11 Energy]

    Taking advantage of his increased speed, Thrym begins slamming the ground, creating another Earthquake. The ground shakes, destroying more and more of the arena. Swells knows that Thrym is ready to fall, so she launches on last Hydro Pump at Thrym. However, the shaking ground disrupted Swells' aiming, and she misses her mark.

    Thrym continues slamming the ground, amplifying the Earthquake, hoping to do as much damage before fainting. Swells crashes to the ground, but is able to quickly regain her footing. The then fires another Hydro Pump. This time it hits its mark, and a soaked Thrym drops to the ground and isn't getting up. The score is now 2-1, but Swells is certainly looking tired. Let's see if LupusAter can pull himself out of this hole.

    All right Swells, we're in a good position here. Your goal is to get some damage off on that thing/cripple it before you die!

    Start with a Chill i suppose. Then flamethrower. Then Chill.

    If he taunts, blast him until you die with a hurricane ~ flamethrower ~ hurricane combo.
