    3v3 singles
    DQ: 3 days
    Restricted moves: 2 uses of Recover/Rest, 5 chills
    Arena: Shifting Arena (description below)

    (Reffer's note: I will interpret this the following way. I'll tell you which form the arena is assuming BEFORE you issue your actions - otherwise you would be completely inhibited from issuing something rational. So, if a Pokémon goes KO, at the end of the round I'll tell you the new form assumed by the arena)

    Clauses:
    All Abilities
    Items Disabled
    Switch = KO

    (note to Limewire: for the next time, remember that Item and Ability clause are up to the Match Challenger, just like the Switch clause - you can't decide them in your Match seeking post)

    Now Limewire, please send out your Pokémon.
    Then, HD please do the same AND issue your actions.
    Then, Limewire please issue your actions.

    Arena shifts to... GRASS!

    Battle on heroes!

    Fuck GameFreak for not giving Magnemite levitate.

    Anyways, use Flash Cannon as Yeti re-surfaces. Then, use Metal Sound as the polar bear uses Claw Sharpen. Finally, when Yeti re-surfaces again, hit it with Flash Cannon again!

    A blade of leaf dances with the wind...

    Yeti doesn't waste time and suddendly burrows underground. Thundah quietly awaits the teddybear working its way onto him with Dig. The hit is devastating to the circuits of the metallic eye, but the Chubchoo doesn't get away with it harmless. Silver sparks gather on the iron edges of the Magnemite, and a glowing Flash Cannon blasts right into Yeti's face, leaving deep wounds into his soft, white skin.

    His fur still dipped in red, Yeti angrily sharpens his claws, making them dreadfully lethal and accurate. As the little bear Hones his Claws, Thundah emits a weird noise, and produces a Metal Sound which enfeebles Yeti's mind.

    Unphazed in his intent, Yeti burrows underground once again, and erupts from his Dig in a lethal whirlwind of claws, putting a large dent in Thundah's metallic hide. The Magnemite, however, concentrates another blinding sphere of argent energy, launching off a Flash Cannon. The Chubchoo's mind is still confused and unclear due to the metal waves still echoing in his head. He doesn't manage to be able to dodge correctly the explosion and get hit right in the face, resulting in a critical hit.

    zarator as a reminder repeated moves have their energy fees increased, keep that in mind for limewire's moves

    Yeti, your directions are clear and simple - use evasive Digging x2 to dodge the first and last Flash Cannons, and throw in an offensive Dig in the middle.

    Dig - Dodge~Dig - Attack~Dig - Dodge

    Wounded but yet steady and strong, Yeti burrows underground again. Thundah tries to hit him with Flash Cannon, but the lil' bear is already in the depths of the arena.

    After a while, Yeti finally surges back and strikes the Magnemite from his Dig, leaving the iron eye severely damaged. However, this time Magnemite doesn't waste time and conjures a deadly silver ball to strike his opponent. The Flash Cannon devastates Yeti, leaving him panting and suffering.

    Before Thundah can follow up with another blast, though, the Chubchoo find cover underground, making the Flash Cannon miss again. Now Thundah looks around nervous, waiting to see where Yeti is going to erupt from...

    Evasive dig, eh? Well then, Thundah, use Lock On on Yeti the first time it pops up. Then, use Flash Cannon twice. Yeti will try to dodge them by using evasive dig, but Lock On will always ensure that they hit. Hehehe.....

    Yeti burrows underground once again, a tad too fast for Thundah to intercept him with his Lock On. He manages to do so once Yeti re-emerges again, but not before taking a nasty hit from Dig.

    The Chubchoo goes underground once again (geez, this Arena has more holes than Swiss cheese...), while the Magnemite prepares his attack. However, the damage taken from the second Dig proves fatal for the steel eyeball, which rolls over fainted.

    Goddamnit. I want a refund for this Pokemon >:O

    Anyways, I send out Shuriken! (Staryu)

    Before I issue my actions though, Zarator, will you tell us what new form the arena takes place before or after HD and I issue our actions?

    sorry about the wait

    Alright, since we can outspeed this bastard it shouldn't be too hard to take down. Now, if Yeti uses Dig, I want you either use Camoflauge if your HP is above 50 or Recover if it is under. If he digs twice and you already used Camoflauge (and your HP is still > 50), use Minimize instead.

    For now, fire off a Bubblebeam, then a Thunderbolt, then another Bubblebeam.

    Natural Cure: This Pokemon’s body has the ability to heal itself of status afflictions over time, it goes into effect six (6) actions after being inflicted with a status. In switch battles, this Pokemon heals all status effects when switched out.

    The newly entered Shuriken opens with a cloud of shiny baubles - err, bubbles. The Bubblebeam engulfs Yeti in water, lowering its speed. The Chubchoo shrugs off the foam and summons a frigid breeze to turn the Staryu into a frozen star. However, while it lowers its speed, the Icy Wind barely scratches Shuriken.

    The latter decides therefore that it's time to end games (or at least, the first part of them) and zaps Yeti in its place with a powerful Thunderbolt. The Chubchoo barks a last wail before fainting.

    doesn't the arena change again?

    Anyways, that puny bug does not scare me at all. Use Ice Beam, then BubbleBeam. As BlackWidow uses Thunderbolt as her last action, use your own Thunderbolt to cancel the two attack out.

    Damn you're right :-( I can't really remember changing the arena, apparently...

    Arena turns into... WATER!

    Please issue your actions again, in same order (HD first, Limewire later). You can post "I keep same actions" if you don't wish to change them.

    Shuriken spins on himself, eager to throw himself into the fight without esitation. With blinding speed, he jumps into the nearby water, but with such celerity a Thunderbolt reach him and zaps him.

    The Staryu reacts by summoning, one after the other, two huge tidal waves to submerge Joltik into a watery grave. The lil' spider however is not afraid of the confrontation, and after emerging from the first wave
    he emits a weak signal which lowers Shuriken's mind resilience. The Bug Opposition prepares the grounds for a second Thunderbolt, which goes through the wall of water and hit the Staryu without fail.

    If it disables the first Surf, use Ice Beam in for your third action. If it tries to Twave you during Recover use Surf instead.

    Shocked and damaged by the lightning bolts, Shuriken attempts to regenerate some of his wounds with Recover. However, the Joltik exploits the opening and fires another Thunderbolt, which basically takes away the effects of the Recover.

    The Staryu tries to react to the assault by summoning another two tidal waves and make them Surf towards the electric tarantula. Black Widow can't do much to avoid the hits, but rather opts to first weaken the offense with his Bug Repellant, which further enfeebles the Staryu's mental focus. Then, he strikes Shuriken as hard as he can with Thunderbolt, zapping the poor lil' star and finally turrning his red light off, knocking him out.
