    I have chosen 2 substitutions since it was left unspecified.

    "First, I'd like to apologize to Ventus in particular for his initial mishap in ASB. I hope I can be prompt enough for your liking.

    Secondly, welcome to your inaugural ASB battle! I hope to see some untapped talent in both of you. You've caught my attention with your starting mons and choice of moves, and thus have my very close attention."

    Alright. Let's get this started! See if I can the hang of this...

    "Go! Mufasa (No item) and Rampant (No item)!"
    "You have no idea how much I want to spam Earthquake right now. For Shinx's sake, however, I will refrain."

    "We're a little mismatched, but we can't let this get out of hand. Maybe some combinations will break us through!"

    [​IMG]

    SmokeScreen (Cranidos) - Dig (Cranidos) - Smokescreen (Cranidos)

    "Cyndaquil, let's try to disorient them!"

    [​IMG]

    Sweet Kiss + Swift (Both) - Cool Down - Electro Ball (Cranidos)

    "Okay, if Sweet Kiss creates a confusion heart, I'll blast a Swift through it and they won't be able to avoid the confusion. Go for it!

    If Pachirisu's combination is not allowed, then Sweet Kiss until both opponents are confused, targeting Cranidos first.
    If Pachirisu's combination is not allowed, switch to Electro Ball (Cranidos) after both opponents are Confused.

    I've sent him a PM, so I guess we'll wait a little more before asking for a replacement.

    Placeholder saying your friendly neighbourhood Nargacurga is here stalking your strengths - I mean subreffing. Sorry Lou, as a semi-feline to another, IRL is really bad, huh? :(

    EDIT: Reffed. You guys have really convoluted tactics, that make this a really hard-for-me match. Whew.

    EDIT2: Fixed Rivalry boost from Shinx and damage error from Cranidos - Rock Slide isn't supposed to be super-effective against Pachirisu. Good job on reminding me, Phalanx.

    So nice and refreshing to see 2 fresh trainers using such unusual teams. As Lou predicted, this will be an interesting match indeed. ("Hmm, I'm looking at rock-hard, frizzling hot meals here...") Careful, Nargacuga, we're not here to eat. Let's go hunt some Aptonoths later. The battlefield is quite smoky out here, which is going to reduce the spectators' view. ("Smoked little critters... Bleh, that's human food.")

    Rock Slide - Earthquake - Rock Slide

    Also, tiny little nitpick, ZT, but Shinx has Rivalry, and both Ventus' pokes are male. It didn't really matter last round considering it would only mean +2 damage to Pachirisu, but just a reminder for next round.

    And as the smoke starts to thin out, we see a riskily magnificent play by Mufasa-Shinx - leaping onto Rampant-Cranidos' back as his teammate causes a veritable Earthquake with a single head pound to the ground! Ven's team has taken quite a brutal beating - even the combos and reckless attacks from his team paled in comparison! He simply can't outdamage the raw power crammed into Rampant-Cranidos' body, so can he come up with a brilliant plan to take out the small-sized brutal threat before he loses the match?

    "This is where the coin falls against you. Your smokescreen tactics didn't help you this time. Oh, and Mufasa, know that I'm very proud of you. It all comes down to whether you two can hit your moves - let's finish this, guys."

    If Cyndaquil faints, replace remaining actions with Night Slash (Pachirisu)

    Alright. I hate to call DQ on my first ever battle, but Ventus appears to have vanished so I'm afraid that's what I'm going to have to do.

    Well, since you requested openly, there's naught for me to do but to comply.
