    3v3 doubles
    DQ 1-2 Days
    2 chills, 5 recovers
    Switch = OK
    No Items
    One Ability

    An Arena was not specified it seems, so I'm going to say Tournament Arena.

    I'll flavour it up when the action starts.
    TravelLog sends out, Engineer Pikachu sends out and orders, TravelLog repsonds, I ref, etc.

    This seems much less fair than the matchup would have led me to believe. Also, isn't Munchlax currently RPing? Regardless, I shall have Victory!

    Ferroseed:
    Toxic (Munchlax)~Leech Seed (Munchlax)~Iron Head (Munchlax)

    Riolu:
    Copycat Hideen Power (Munchlax)~Counter (Munchlax)~Copycat Hidden Power (Munchlax)

    Umm, I don't necessarily mind if his pokemon is RPing or not. But if necessary, just swap in a new poke. No need for a DQ lol.

    I didn't think you would push for DQ. But rules are rules, so Engineer will swap out Munchlax for something else, then you can change your actions.

    Hey guys just some fair warning, I may not be the fastest ref this week since i (for once) have a busy social schedule. I should have computer access at least once a day but the time in between those uses may be extensive.

    Cheered by the easily amused masses, TravelLog and Engineer Pikachu enter the arena. And, although neither party recalls ever deciding to come here, they figure they might as well have a battle while they're here.
    TravelLog begins the affair by sending out Ferroseed and Riolu. Engineer, after a little bit of a kafuffle, decides to go with Monohm and Murkrow.
    Yacho the Murkrow, the fastest of the lot gets things going the minute he leaves his ball. Summoning a mystical force within, he fires his Hidden Power at Briar the Ferroseed. Monohm also sends an attack Briar's way, but the Fire Blast goes off course and hits a nearby hot dog salesman. Seeing his ally under fire, Riolu takes immediate action and leaps into the air to take out the flying Yacho with a Hi Jump Kick. Ferroseed meanwhile decides that Vercingetorix has got Murkrow covered and turns his attentions to Monohm, injecting him with a Toxic venom.
    Rather than fight back against his attacker, Murkrow simply goes higher and prepares his next move. Monohm attamepts to keep the ground foes occupied with a Signal Beam at Ferroseed. Riolu focuses instead on Murkrow, firing a projectile Hidden Power at the ever higher bird. Briar ignores Kumo's assaults and too fires something at Murkrow, fearing what he might have up his sleeve. The Leech Seed hits its mark, but it doesn't slow down Yacho's powerful Sky Attack against poor Ferroseed.
    Murkrow and Monohm return to previous tactics, with Hidden Power and Fire Blast both striking Briar for notable damage, but he persists; Riolu pins down Murkrow with another Hi Jump Kick allowing Ferrosseed to begin his Rollout.

    Since there are no calcs, I was wondering if you remembered to calculate the damage done to Murkrow due to Iron Barbs. Also, Leech Seed will work for 4 more actions (with the health going to Bisharp when I switch him in, I believe).
    ____________________
    Good work so far guys.

    Ferroseed:
    pump all remaining energy into successfully using Explosion before you are KOed.
    IF Explosion would fail, use Worry Seed (Monohm)~Rollout x2 (Murkrow).

    Riolu:
    Hi Jump Kick (Murkrow)~Hidden Power (Murkrow)~Hi Jump Kick (Murkrow)
    IF Murkrow is KOed, retarget all remaining actions to Monohm

    Ferroseed prays for life as he attempts to use Explosion, but is defused(?) quickly by Monohm's Fire Blast. Meanwhile Murkrow swoops down at Riolu with a Wing Attack, but is met by a Hi Jump kick, and only the fighter survives the exchange.
    Satisfied, Riolu turns his attentions to Monohm and strikes him with an icy Hidden Power. Monohm however merely weathers the blow while summoning some weather with Rain Dance.
    With that, the dragon begins to fight back. A hefty Hydro Pump knocks Riolu about as he runs towards Monohm. The water does not slow his advance however, and a further Hi Jump Kick finds its mark. Future advances may however be slowed by Monohm's Static, and the Paralysis it has inflcted.

    I'm pretty sure you can't make two substitutions, so by my understanding they are illegal.
    Should that not be the case Jesseus, please inform me so I can adjust accordingly. Also, is the speed tie rerolled every round?

    Riolu:
    Dig, stay down until your A2 (Monohm)~Hidden Power (Monohm)~Copycat (Thunder on Golbat)

    IF his substitutions are indeed illegal, swap Me First (Thunder on Golbat) for Copycat.

    Bisharp:
    Torment (Golbat to prevent repeated Brave Bird)~Dig (Monohm)~Dig (Monohm)

    IF Monohm is KOed at any point, change your remaining actions to Psycho Cut (Golbat)

    You can make one substitution per Pokemon. KO substitutions do not count towards this limit. Also TravelLog you've given me 4 actions worth of commands for Riolu, so I'm discounting the last one.

    Golbat gets going, putting Bisharp under Hypnosis. Lacking an active teammate, Riolu attempts to take refuge underground, though it seems Monohm's incoming Thunder would have missed anyway.
    Golbat sees Riolu's attempt to escape and decides to chase him down with Brave Bird, but to no avail. Bisharp wakes up and decides to join his Teammate underground. Monohm looks around frantically, and tries to hit Riolu with another Thunder, but due to Paralysis he's taking a while to pop back up. Moments later however, him and Bisharp both re-emerge for a double Dig against the cloudy dragon.
    Golbat, a believer in second chances swoops on Riolu, this time landing his Brave Bird successfully. Bisharp, though not fearful of this Digs underground again almost immediately, but pops up before too long to finish off Monohm. Meanwhile Riolu, charging a Hidden Power to use against his now fallen foe swiftly redirects it towards his aerial attacker.

    The two stronger Pokemon move first, Golbat spewing Toxic gases at Riolu while being Paralysed by Bisharp's Thunder Wave. Riolu fights back however, firing at Golbat with Hidden Power.
    Now with a speed advantage, Bisharp empowers his claws with psychic power and slashes at Golbat with Psycho Cut. Riolu sees Golbat flying towards him and focuses his efforts to Endure the Brave Bird, but barely holds on.
    Though nearly achieveing a small victory, Golbat can only manage to stand there Fully Paralysed as Riolu and Bisharp bombard him with Rock Tomb and Hidden Power.

    You are correct, I forgot about new Paralysis. I still rolled 15/100 for the paralysis check in this round though... :( But if you think that's bad hax you should see the other battle I'm reffing. Also TravelLog you have once again given me four actions worth of commands for Riolu. Furthermore, you should probably mention explicitly when you are using a combo, just writing a little '+' is insufficient warning; I actually missed it completely and reffed the round ignoarant of the fact it was a combo. It makes no real difference to the result so rather than decide if the combo should work or not I'm just leaving it as I have reffed, but please be more articulate in future.

    Bisharp gets the ball rolling before his Paralysed comrades and enemies with a Psycho Cut against Golbat. To add insult to this injury, Golbat cramps up in paralysis once again, allowing Riolu to strike him with a strong but ineffective Hi Jump Kick, though he faints shortly after due to his poison.
    Golbat has little time to celebrate however as he is snuffed out by another Psycho Cut shortly after, leaving TravelLog victorious over Engineer Pikachu!

    I get 6 RC.
    You each get 2 TC.
    Golbat, Ferroseed, Monohm, Riolu, Murkrow, Bisharp get 1 EC, 1 DC, 2 MC.
    Monohm, Riolu, Golbat get 1 KOC.
    Bisharp gets 2 KOC.

    Real quick, Ferroseed became a ferrothorn as a result of another match, so it should get 3 MC as it's EC is full and it has no DC
