Gym [WATER] Leader Athenodoros vs C$FP

#1
Whatever humans build, water will eventually pull it down. Stones fall to ice and erosion, wood rots in the humiditiy, and metal rust. Dihydrogen monoxide is both necessary for life, and the bane of mortal construction. Societites position themselves along a water source, but fall to floods and hurricanes.

What happens when the element of man enters the domain of the water?

The first thing you notice about the Water Gym is the size. It is a giant dome of ice, completely out of place in the warm Pumello Island, which looks almost like a snow globe because of the fog inside, near the top of the roof, and the rim of completely opaque ice around the bottom 10 metres, which stops you seeing in. You walk around a bit and discover a large entrance which burrows in to the ice, angled downwards in the the ice, as if you will end up some distance below ground when you get to wherever the path actually leads. The path is the shape of a semi-circle, roughly 10 metres across, with rough ice and snow on the bottom clearly to enable trainers to walk with all of their Pokemon beside them, so you release yours out of their Pokeballs and travel down to whatever depths the path will take you.

After some time, the originally opaque tunnel starts to clear out, and you suddenly realise that you are underwater, protected from the sea above you by the completely transparent ice of the semicircular path, which nonetheless allows you to see out in to the sea. It is full of strange plants, rising hills and falling crevasses, but even more importantly it is full of water-type Pokemon of every description - you see a school of Goldeen swim overhead, barely noticing you and all of your Pokemon, before a large Dewgong distracts your attention by swimming in the other way. You even see what appears to be a Phione, one of the famous legendary Pokemon, as you come up to what you now realise is the surface of the water. You had been following the water-type Pokemon so closely you hadn't noticed the small incline that you had started to ascend with the path. Eventually, you rise out of the water onto a large area of ice to hear a sudden increase of noise, which surprises you after the silence of the tunnel. However, you keep moving along the path, which now rises a foot above the ice partially covering the pool you were just in, away from the edge of the plateau and towards the center of the area, whatever might lie there. It takes some time, but eventually the noise of the sea creatures dies down as you walk away and you suddenly notice a large increase in temperature created by geysers rising out of the ice on either side of the path, which you and your Pokemon welcome after walking through the cold for so long. It keeps you walking, and finally you think you see something different ahead, which clearly signals the end of the road; perhaps because of the great grandeur of the area, compared to the small path through bleak landscape you have been walking through most recently. Anyway, as it comes in to view you see that it is a waterfall covered completely in mist and very concentrated rain, coming off the back of a giant cliff, dozens of metres high. In front of the cliff, near the base of the waterfall, there is a small pool of water, seemingly too small to contain the colossal amounts of water falling in from the Waterfall draining through a short river in to it, with two groups of three small pedestals of ice sticking out of the water, facing each other. Around the pool, with the exception of a clear area behind each group of three, are more geysers, spouting hot water many metres in to the air, where it formed steam and kept rising. It is near this pool that the path ends, falling back down the ground level, so you walk down over the end and stand in the clear section opposite the waterfall, looking around for a gym leader. You are just worrying that the long, but admittedly nicely scenic, route in here might have been for naught when the waterfall suddenly parts and an old man rides out from beneath it on a Lapras.



Welcome, says the trainer. I am Athenodoros, leader of the Water Gym of Pumello Island. He rides out further and then jumps down on to the clear area on the other side, which is a small island in the middle of the pool, next to where the short river from the waterfall empties in to it. In this gym we pay homage to the diversity and power of water and Water-type Pokemon. You see, in this little arena alone we have steam, water and ice interacting and coming together to create a working arena, as it does all over the gym. Here, the rain is created by the steam from the geysers you can see around us rising up and being cooled by the ice which forms the roof, and the Pokemon created and maintain all of this. In this gym, you will be challenged to show the diversity and strength of Water-type Pokemon, using only the materials which you would find in such an arid environment as ice can create, and against all the powers of the water type Pokemon I have at my disposal. We will battle three times: twice in doubles matches and once in a singles match, in the case of a tiebreaker being needed. However, the way in which you will show diversity and variety is that for each battle you must select a type, and any Pokemon you use in that battle must share that type. But now, I have spoken enough. Nominate your first type, and we shall begin our first battle!

After such a long walk with your Pokemon, you are ready for this battle. You have prepared for a long time, and even with the rules imposed by the gym you feel ready. Send out your first Pokemon!

-Everyone brings 6
-Default weather is Rain (i.e. Sunny Day and friends are fine, but after 5 rounds it goes back to rain)
-Best of Three, alternating sending out first and then blind send out - 2v2 Doubles + 2v2 Doubles + 1v1 Singles (If necessary)
-All Pokemon on each side must share a type in each battle, and can't be used in more than one battle

Battle Conditions: This gym requires its challengers to show the variety and strategy of the water-type. This means there will be three battles: two 2v2 doubles and a tiebreaker singles match if need be. However, there is a catch: in each battle, the Pokemon on each side must share one type, chosen by the trainer. All three of these battles will take place in the central gym area, and as the ultimate test for the diversity of a trainer's skills there will be no limits to the battle aside from those dictated by the arena.

-Everyone brings 6
-Best of Three, alternating sending out first and then blind send out - 2v2 Doubles + 2v2 Doubles + 1v1 Singles (If necessary)
-All Pokemon on each side must share a type in each battle, and can't be used in more than one battle

Sorry about this. I unexpectedly didn't have any internets for three days, but I'm going to have to put actions up tomorrow because I've hardly slept in a week, including nights straight on the ground for the last few days. I should only be about 12 hours. Hope that's fine by you both.

EDIT: I'll seriously do this this evening. I've had a lot of catching up to do in my return to civilisation.

Alright. So I'm still almost dead after my day today but I think it is time you had actions and an opponent. So here you are:


Both Pokemon holding Enigma Berries

Starmie: Reflect Type (Ferrothorn) ~ Blizzard * 2
IF
Necturna uses Pain Split (Starmie) then use Dive (Necturna)
IF one of them uses a Damaging Grass-type Move AND it's at you AND it isn't in a combo, use Dive (That Pokemon)

Cloyster: Icicle Spear (Necturna) * 3
IF
one of them uses a Damaging Grass-type Move AND it's at you AND it isn't in a combo, use Dive (That Pokemon)
IF one of them uses a Damaging Electric-type Move AND it's at you AND it isn't in a combo, use Dive (That Pokemon)

Try to be nice. At least Illuminate will help a bit.
 
#5
"Hmm, that Starmie Cloyster worries me. So let us remove it from existence. Thankfully those enigma berries only trigger after damage, and good lord how terrible is your substitution?"
Furthermore, I SHALL NOT BE FREEZE OR ACCURACY HAXED!

Spike: Sunny Day, Solarbeam + Solarbeam (Cloyster), cool down (Solarbeam + Solarbeam (Cloyster))
IF Cloyster has fainted, THEN use Swagger (Starmie)

Necturna: Gravity, Solarbeam + Solarbeam (Cloyster), cool down (Solarbeam + Solarbeam (Cloyster))
IF Cloyster has fainted, THEN use Super Fang (Starmie)

Round One: Towards the Light

Rain continues to fall.

The gym has been open for ages, but it is barley tested. His first challenger was a leader with a clear natural advantage; his second is at a disadvantage if only typing is considered. Despite this, the first round exposes two grass types to the water, met by a Cloyster and Starmie. Of course, Starmie isn't a water type for long. The Starmie's gem begins to glow and morph into a metallic green, with the coloration of its body soon following. Cloyster goes straight on the offensive, freezing some of the raindrops and blasting them out at Necturna in a barrage. The target reacts in an... interesting way. As the spears fly, it seems as if time slows down as the projectiles move slower and slower as the spatial makeup of the area is altered. When the icicles speed up again and collide, everything suddenly feels much heavier, and the rain is falling at a brutal, torrential pace as if pushed down faster by an unseen hand. Ferrothorn appears to be moving even slower than usual, but still manages to complete an ancient summoning spin that causes the torrent to halt, and sunlight to stream into the area through the icy dome.

Starmie is not impressed and, moving slower than usual, creates a wave of cool air that barely harms its targets, refreshed as they are by the sunlight and the heat it generates. Cloyster shoots out another blast of ice that pelts Necturna, but she's smiling. The gym leader begins to worry as Necturna doesn't attack, but begins to glow with Ferrothorn joining her. The leader screams to run, but his Pokemon are moving too slowly in the enhanced gravity to dodge. A massive flash of light blinds all participants in the arena, and the results are uncertain for a moment. As the arena begins to darken to a bright, but not blinding, level the results are clear. Cloyster has been blasted out, leaving Starmie to fight alone. The starfish summons a brief blizzard to mask its fear, but it knows that the battle is not going well.

The sun is shining brightly.

Spike: Thunder Wave, Swagger, chill
IF Magic Coat, THEN chill and push actions back
IF Starmie has a Substitute up AND you would not otherwise chill, THEN use Pin Missile the first and third times, Iron Head the second, pushing actions back

Necturna: Pain Split, chill, Synthesis

Round Two: Sunlight on the Ocean

The sun continues to shine.

Starmie ducks beneath the water as Necturna and Ferrothorn blast out pulses of spells and electricity that bolt over the shimmering water. Just a few moments later Starmie leaps out and slams into Necturna before dipping back below the water. Necturna relaxes while Ferrothorn proceeds to taunt the starfish who can't here him from below the surface. Starmie then rushes up and collides with Necturna right in the eye. Even though Necturna can easily take water attacks with its plant-nature and physical bulk, which is further boosted by the sunlight evaporiting the water.

Starmie then spins quickly until its body flashes a metallic grey. Suddenly, the sun grows slightly brighter as a bolt of light streaks across the field towards Necturna. While Plantlady is badly hurt, it is far from done and begins to glow as the sunlight heals her wounds. Ferrothorn simply rests and prepares for the third round.


The sun continues to shine (2r)!

Round Three: Steel on Steel

The sunlight is strong.

Starmie's gem glows for a few seconds before subsiding, although this time no colors are changed and the light is drowned out by the intense glare cast off of the water's surface. And then Necturna makes it brighter. In a tremendous flash of light, time seems to slow down as a red aura appears around Starmie, slowly depriving it of energy As Necturna grows stronger. As soon as it is freed from the spiritual embrace, Spike begins to spin in a circle as fast as it can. At some point, the speed even lifts it slightly off of the ground. Once the full attack has been prepared, Spike blasts himself out towards Starmie, skidding over the water with his momentum, and knocks the water-type back even with the neutral hit.

Starmie realizes that it can't take a beating, and would be hard pressed to go on the offense. It therefore plays defensively, glowing brightly as a shield of telepathically held water builds up around it, reflecting the intense glare from above. Necturna is far too tired to do anything at all, and merely watches as Ferrothorn bashes against the shield to seemingly little effect. Both Starmie and Necturna watch as Ferrothorn tries to break it again, spinning around rapidly until he's circling Starmie every second.

Then he slams into the gym leader's Pokemon.

And the shield breaks.

The sunlight is strong (1 round).

Starmie: Reflect Type Ferrothorn: 5 energy, Steel/Grass six more actions
Necturna: Pain Split Starmie: 24 energy, -25 HP Starmie, +25 HP Necturna

Match One Round Four: A slight miscalculation

The sunlight is strong.

Starmie knows it has nothing left to do but stall for its life, and telkinetically messes with Ferrothorn again, this time losing its ability to cleanse its body as Spike's exterior becomes visibly smoother and softer and Starmie's spines become more plentiful and sharper. This does not fair well for the challenger, as two physical attacks scratch into the metal starfish, but don't quite bring it down.

But of course, because Karma's a bitch, Athenodoros miscalculated how much CMFP would do after Life Orbs and lost, putting CMFP up 1-0 going into the second match!

Starmie: Skill Swap Ferrothorn: 7 energy, Iron Barbs and Natural Cure Swapped
Necturna: Shadow Claw: [(7+3+3+3)*0.66] 10.66 damage, 4.66 recoil, 4 energy (6035 no crit)
Ferrothorn: Iron Head Necturna: [(8+3+3+1.5)*0.66] 10.33 damage, 4.58 recoil (8916 no crit)

Starmie: Chill: +12 energy
Necturna: Chill: +12 energy
Ferrothorn: Gyro Ball Starmie: [(15+3+3+1.5)*0.66] 15 damage, KO (2237 no crit)

Hopefully everything goes to plan here and we end up with a nice 2v1 again. Which I can then mess up.

Swampert: Earth Power (Cyclohm) ~ Endeavour + Endeavour (Krilowatt) ~ Cool Down (Endeavour + Endeavour (Krilowatt))
Krillowatt: Substitute (25) ~ Hydro Pump (Cyclohm) ~ Thunderbolt + Thunderbolt (Krilowatt)
IF Krilowatt faints by A3, Krillowatt uses Blizzard

And God damn I'm missing Krill's current movepool. It would make this just an instant win.

Also, Mine is the Krillowatt with the double 'l'. His is the inferior one with only one.

Match Two: Round Two: Someone's probably doing the math wrong...

The rain continues to fall...

Two new sets of Pokemon appear, with the Gym Leader's Swampert and Krillowatt matched against the challenger's electric types, Cyclohm and Krillowatt. The gym leader's is faster, and conjurers his energy into a swirling sphere of water around him that blocks most attacks. The challenger's team takes a much more direct approach: spamming orbs of light at Swampert as he roars in frustration, being pushed back by the massive weakness. The best it can do is fire back a shot of ground-based energy at the thunder dragon, weakening it slightly.

Water then starts flying. Cyclohm and both Krillowatts launch out huge jets of it in different directions, throwing up tremendous salty sprays and making the rain seem to come down even harder. Only Swampert abstains, and it is soon clear why. The mudfish lies panting, down but not quite out. Still, it focuses on the despair of the situation and how it can really only do one thing under this kind of pressure.

And no, it isn't die.

It's die in an extremely epic manner. Swampert's fists glow extremely brightly as it charges across the field at a speed physically impossible for a member of its species, rears back before the challenger's Krillowatt and roars as it shoots out a massive hyper beam style blast of light as it barrages Krillowatt with fists of pure energy before exploding in pure light as the field settles back down. Swampert is out. Krillowatt is almost there.

The challenger fails to sieze the opportunity, staring numbly at the point where the explosion occured. In fact, he fails to notice the opponent up until the point where a tremendous crack of thunder echoes across the dome, snapping up Krillowatt and bringing the match down 1 to 1.

The rain continues to fall...

Is there are reason why Endeavour + Endeavour is only x2? I can't remember anything about a change, and IRC only gave me:

<%Objection> i think you do fixed damage * 2.25

Is that a typo, or am I missing something? I can't find anything in the DAT.

EDIT: Also, the flavour for Endeavour combo was awesome. Swampert sounded so boss.

It says return damage is ^2, not *2. Which iirc means that Counter, for example, is 1.5*1.5 = 2.25.

Are you sure you're not thinking of:

<Pwnemon> i think red got his idea
<Pwnemon> from an old ruling about non-damaging moves
<Pwnemon> where when they were comboed with themselves, the effect was simply doubled

?

But IRC seemed unsure but leaning to *2.25. At least that's how I read it.

EDIT: Although I'm happy to take the 3080 damage from using the Damage^2 calc.
 
#23
I hold that there is need to clarify how fixed damage combinations work (and that Endeavor taking a Pokemon below the HP of the user is ridiculous), for now I have fixed the data and end results. Blizzard missed, so it really only puts Athenodoros without a cooldown term and with much higher energy. Order away.
