Scratchet [Saber] (Male)
Nature: Modest (+1 SpA, -1 Atk)
Type: Normal/Fighting
Normal:
Normal STAB; adapt comfortably to any surrounding after 3 actions. Able to use Outrage without losing focus.
Fighting: Fighting STAB; ignore weight restrictions on Circle Throw, Seismic Toss, Sky Drop, Storm Throw, Submission, and Vital Throw. Superior reaction time in close quarters.

Abilities:

Scrappy:
(Passive) This Pokemon's Normal and Fighting attacks carry a special signature that can damage Ghosts, even if they have phased out.
Prankster: (Passive) The Pokemon is always prepared for engaging in sneaky tactics and trickery, giving its non-damaging attacks an increase in priority level.
Vital Spirit (DW): (Passive) This Pokemon has a high vitality and alertness making it immune to sleep induced by other Pokemon. Its normal state of sleeplessness makes it take 1 less damage/action from Ghost Curse. If it is put to sleep by a Pokemon with Mold Breaker it will wake up the next action.

Ralts [Arthur] (Male)
Nature: Brave (+1 Atk, -15% Speed, -10% Evasion)
Type: Psychic
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:

Synchronize: (Passive)Pokemon with this ability mentally link their condition to an opposing Pokemon and pass on any status inflicted on them to their foe. Due to their body structure, Poison-types cannot be poisoned and Fire-types cannot be burned in this manner.
Trace: (Passive)
When entering into battle, this Pokemon can copy an ability on one of its opponents for 6 EN. This effect only triggers if the ability to be copied is specified when the Pokemon is sent out. The ability remains on the Pokemon for six (6) actions. Trace can be reused with an action later in battle for 5 EN. Wonder Guard cannot be Traced.
Telepathy (DW): (Passive) This Pokemon has a mental link with its allies in multiple battles, allowing it to avoid taking damage from attacks that affect the whole field like Earthquake and Surf.

Cupra [Purity] (Male)
Nature: Rash(+1 SpA, -1 SpD)
Type: Bug/Psychic
Bug: Bug STAB; more mobility in dense brush or forest conditions. Gains one extra attack on multi-hit moves, with a cap of five (5).
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:

Shield Dust:
(Passive) This Pokemon has dust covering the outside of its body that prevents opponents secondary effects from taking place (eg burn from Flamethrower). It does not block direct status moves (such as Thunder Wave.)
Keen Eye: (Passive) This Pokemon has extremely good vision and cannot have its accuracy lowered by an opponent through any means (including accuracy lowering attacks, Smogs, Hazes, Fog, etc.). Its attacks are still affected by an opponent’s evasion and the Pokemon's own accuracy.
Illusion (DW): (Passive) Whenever you send this Pokemon out, it can feign the appearance of another member on your squad. If this Pokemon is damaged by a direct attack, the Illusion will cease at the end of the round. Direct damage is any attack that does damage to the Pokemon's HP. Attacks that are evaded, blocked via Protect, or damage a Substitute are not considered direct damage. It will retain the typing and moveset of the Pokemon with Illusion. [Usage Note: PM the ref if you are sending out a Pokemon with Illusion with the info on said Pokemon and one of your squad members in a Switch=KO battle. You must use that squad member later in the battle though.]

Team Objection


Meowth [Prince John] (M)
Nature: Naive (+Speed, -Special Defence)

Type: Normal
Normal: Normal STAB; adapt comfortably to any surrounding after 3 actions. Able to use Outrage without losing focus.

Stats:
HP: 90
Atk: Rank 2
Def: Rank 2
SpA: Rank 2
SpD: Rank 1 (-)
Spe: 104 (+) (Accuracy boost: 25% (24.864367816091954022988505747126% unrounded))
Size Class: 1
Weight Class: 1
Base Rank Total: 13
Moves: 21

EC: 3/6
MC: 0
DC: 3/5

Abilities:
Pick Up: (Passive) This Pokemon has a natural habit of collecting items. Whenever a hold item (its own or an opponents) is used or knocked onto the ground with a move like Knock Off, this Pokemon will immediately pick up that item without using an action. It can also grab dropped or naturally occuring hold items in arenas.
Technician: (Passive) This Pokemon is more skilled at performing weaker moves, causing any of their one-hit or two-hit attacks that normally have 6 or less Base Attack Power to have their Base Attack Power on each hit multiplied by 1.5. (e.g. Aerial Ace goes from 6 to 9, Mach Punch goes from 4 to 6, Double Hit to from 4 per hit to 6 per hit etc.) The Energy Cost for a one-hit or two-hit attack is increased by one (1). Each hit in a multi-hit move is boosted by one (1) Base Attack Power, and the Energy Cost for multi-hit attacks is increased by two (2). Because Technician is a multiplier on single hit moves, its effect is applied to Base Attack Power before any additive effects. Technician only applies to combos in the rare case that an initial hit will have 6 or less BAP.
Unnerve (DW): (Passive) The Pokemon's presense causes immense tension in the opponent, preventing them from eating a held Berry. Natural Gift may still be used.

Sheer Force: (Toggle) No default effect. When toggled, this Pokemon can energize all its attacks with a secondary effect (These are damaging moves that either lower the target's stats, raise the user's stats, or inflict a status condition on the target).

ROUND 1!
And it seems that we have another newcomer on the world of ASB! This is P2X7's first battle or so and Mr. Objection is playing host! Let's see how the newbie will play against an old veteran player!

P2X7 sends out Saber the Scratchet to starts things off, while Objection sends out Lumpjaw the Timburr, relying on type advantage to get a strong advantage!

Saber seems ready to try and prove him wrong and uses Double Team to create 4 clones in order to avoid being hit by Timburr's powerful punches. But there is a big problem with 20% probabilities: some day they will happen. And this day is today! Amongst all clones, Lumpjaw managed to find out who was the real one and punished it with Brick Break. All clones faded! And it seems that Saber's defensive tactics failed...

Sensing craploads of danger, Saber uses Roar to send Lumpjaw back to his pokeball, while receiving a strong Drain Punch to the face. Finally it creates a 20hp subtitute that proceeds to take in Lumpjaw's Brick Break, surviving barely. After that, Lumpjaw couldn't hold on any longer and returned to his pokeball, and Queen Narcisa the Snivy jumped right in to continue from where her partner left off!
DATA:

ACTION 1!

Scratchet used Double Team 4 clones! (-16en)

Timburr used Brick Break! (-5en)
Clone (1=real): 1 (oh you lucky bastard)
All clones faded!
Crit: 8/16 (no)
Damage: (8+3)*1.5 = 16.5hp

ACTION 2!

Timburr used Drain Punch! (-11en)
Crit: 4/16(no)
Damage: 16.5hp

Scratchet used Roar! (-7en)
Timburr will leave at the end of the round!

Timburr used Brick Break! (-5en)
Crit: 14
Damage: 16.5hp

"Well, that could have gone better. I'm just glad that last hit wasn't critical"

Yawn - Return - Confuse Ray

IF you do not have a substitute up a2 or a3 AND you have more then 15 HP that action, change that action to Substitute (15 HP) and push back, but not consecutively. This sub takes priority.
IF Snivy uses Safeguard, replace actions with Return - Nature Power - Return.

ROUND 2!
It seems that both players aren't adept of the JUST FUCKING ATTACK philosophy. Such a shame.

The newcomer Queen Narcissa starts this round by using a weak Vine Whip to get rid of Saber's Substitute, while the Scratchet Yawns as an attempt to disrupt his foe.

On the following action, Saber forms a new 15hp substitute and hides behind it, while Queen Narcisa begins to set up and erects a Light Screen to protect her team against special attacks. Eventually, as it seems.

Finally, Queen Narcissa erects now a Reflective barrier to stop physical attacks, and it was put to use on that very same action, as Saber attempted to attack with Return, but the protection + the fact that Snivy has more Hp meant that it didn't do much...

ROUND 3!

Scratchet abuses the sub to get some time, but at which cost? both wasted almost the same amount of energy and saber lost his sub. It seems that the newcomer needs to pick up some slack if he hopes to win against Objection...

"Ha ha, excellent! Oh, I guess that's what I get for relying on confusion!"


Ralts @ nothing

Also, Trace (Sheer Force). (let me know if I can't activate it like this.)
 
#18
Yeah that's legit, although if you wish to switch your traced Sheer Force on, now's the time to do so.


"Let's see how you handle this."

Rock Slide x 3
If he uses Disable (Rock Slide) on action 2 or action 3, change that action to Combo: Focus Punch + Payback.
If Rock Slide is disabled, change all remaining actions not changed by the above substitution to Payback.
 
#19


"Just fine."

Disable (Rock Slide) - Teleport (Evasive) - Encore
IF you flinch, push back.
IF Timburr uses Payback in a combo, use Teleport (Evasive) that action and push back.

(If these substitutions are illegal then I'd like to reorder please.)
 
#20
I don't think that second one would be legit because you could end up causing an infinite loop.

Say the first Rock Slide flinches so the Disable happens on action 2. This triggers my Focus Punch + Payback sub, which would trigger your Teleport (Evasive) sub, which would mean my Focus Punch + Payback sub would not be triggered since you're not using Disable, which means your Teleport (Evasive) sub would not be triggered so you would use Disable, so I would use the Payback combo, so you would not use Disable, so I would not use the combo ...

In such an event, I believe either the subs of the guy who ordered first take precedence if the orders are given in a forum thread, or all the subs are ignored if they are given via PM.

Your first sub is fine though and you can still make substitutions for if I use the combo, but you couldn't apply them if they might cause such a loop. So something like "If Timburr uses Payback in a combo, change the action after to Psyshock" would work but "If Timburr uses Payback in a combo, change that action to Psyshock" wouldn't.

Objection is right. The sub of the first to order takes precedence in such cases. The second to order can't avoid the result of a substitution by including it on a substitution of his own, if said substitution, when triggered, ends up not triggering the opponent's substitution.

...oh god now I confused myself.

Point is: that second sub is illegal, so you should would want to reorder, considering that you asked for that.

You have 26h to fix this since, according to the Referee Resource Thread: "Note that the posting of illegal actions doesn't reset DQ time; players still have to give legal orders within the timeframe in order to avoid disqualification". Sure it isn't the case exactly, but it is close enough for it to be effective.

If no change is made by then (or by the time I ref, whatever comes last) I will take your orders as is and ignore your second sub.
 
#22


"Okay then, hopefully these actions are actually legal."

Disable (Rock Slide) - Teleport (Evasive) - Encore
IF you flinch, push back.
IF Timburr uses Payback in a combo, use Psyshock the following action.

ROUND 5!

After losing his first mon, P2X7 sends out Arthur the Ralts to hopefully get his act back together.

And Timburr is the first to act and creates a Rock Slide in an attempt to flinch the Ralts. But Arthur is a brave ralts and goes on, using his psychic powers to Disable Rock Slide, removing it from his mind entirely!

On the following turn, Timburr goes on plan b, but attacking with Payback, but it missed as Ralts Teleported away.

Timburr then attacks with Payback once more, with the additional energy cost due to repetitive use. The Ralts seized that opportunity and used Encore to ensure a EN KO on the next round. Good strategy!​


ACTION 1!

Timburr used Rock Slide! (-6en)
Crit: 8/16 (no)
Flinch: 6/10 (no)
Damage: 8+3 = 11hp

Ralts used Disable (Rock Slide)! (-7en)
Rock Slide was disabled!

ACTION 2!

Ralts used Evasive Teleport! (-7en)

Timburr used Payback! (-7en)
but it missed!

ACTION 3!

Timburr used Payback! (-11en)
Crit: 14/16 (no)
Damage: (5+3)*1.5 = 12hp

Ralts used encore! (-10en)

"Okay, I guess I should be ordering now. Better get to it, then."

Double Team (4 clones) - Chill - Chill
IF you do not have Double Team clones up a2, use Double Team (4 clones) that action and push back.
