    Two brave battlers enter into a swamp, testing their strength and bravery. However, they care not only about power, but also honor. They have agreed to civilized rules, consisting of the following:

    Welcome my rival, the time has come
    in the end who will say that they have won?
    We shall find out quite soon, now its my turn to send
    out a Sonnet, indeed; we have honor to defend!

    Her body is tense, her first battle is set
    But Sonnet you have no need to worry, stress, or fret!
    I believe in you dear, you can do it i swear
    Now let's see who he sends, if Complications dares!

    It seems you are lucky, that electric resists
    Cause Murkrow would make Joltic cease to exist

    But still he can break
    The bug's scrawny defenses
    And prove that he
    Has the better offenses.

    Gooooo Bec
    Let's start off strong!
    Sky Attack-Wing Attack-Sky Attack
    If Joltic uses Thunder Wave, sub that action for Protect.

    So the matchup today is a bug and a bird?
    Most people would see my choice as absurd
    But if we are clever, and have some luck
    Our high flying "friend" shall be a roasted duck!

    ~*~

    Sonnet, here is what i would like you to do. Bec will fly very high to charge her Sky attack, but before she can even descend to fight you will strike! Give her a very potent Thunderbolt, one that will make her fall from her airy pedestal! your shock will make her attack futile; Zap her down from the air!

    Next, i will ask you to concoct a sticky trap for our "friend"; one too many times a bird has made a petite bug like yourself its prey. Now, with your wits and abilities, we will turn the tides! Start getting the plan into your head, and began to spin your web. When she comes in for her wing attack, it will hurt, but its the perfect opportunity! Use a combination of your Spider Web and Electroweb moves to trap that bird! she came up close, and now she won't be able to escape! Tangled in our Shocking Web, Bec will become immobilized and hurt!

    Finally, take a break. the combo will wear you out. No need to worry though, Bec won't be able to Sky Attack! The electrifying goo will hold her to the ground, and she won't be able to do a thing about it!

    Sonnet and Bec face off in the dark woods, eager to prove their own superiority. Bec starts off, flying up, but not far up enough to avoid the incoming Thunderbolt, which hits Bec in a critical spot, making him caw in pain. He is unfazed, however, and swoops down, dealing almost as much damage.
    Following up on his previous attack, Bec lunges at Sonnet with his wing, but it appears Sonnet has laid a trap for Bec. As soon as he was hit, Sonnet shoots electrical webbing out of his behind, trapping Bec. As Sonnet recovers, Bec tries to escape the webbing and attack the spider, but to no avail.
    As the round ends, Bec is leading in health, but that webbing will surely hinder him greatly.

    If Bec is tied to the ground does it nullify his flying type?

    Pardon me if I'm wrong, but did you apply the Pokemon's defenses in calculating damage?

    I did. (10(bp)+3(STAB)+1.5(Stat difference))*1.5(super Effective) - Thunderbolt
    (10(bp+3(STAB)+3(Stat difference)) - Sky Attack
    And so on.

    This is where you fall.
    You forget that this bird is on the ground
    And lightning don't hurt at all.

    You lower my speed!? Yours goes down too!

    It's legal. The last set is a combo, which, according to a recent rule update, is legal. The Cooldown action overlaps into the next round... Unless you're talking about Protect+Roost, in which case Idk

    No, only one combo. Protect is individual, and roost is individual, but the two sky attacks serve as a combo. Typically a combo is marked by ~ between moves instead of -.

    i thought they were separate actions, but in your previous comment you typed Protect+roost. therefore i thought it was a combonation.

    My apologies, i did not understand the situation. I've learned though.

    Actions up in a moment

    ~*~

    Our opponent is weary, she attempts to recover
    shall we "troll", and make Bec cry for her mother?
    Sonnet keep it coming, do not cease
    only your victory can allow the forest peace!

    Right from the start our opponent is going to deny our attacks entrance, Sonnet, so i think that would be the perfect time to restore some energy. Chill, and then set up a familiar trick! bec will roost, restoring energy by taking a small break on the ground. she should have gone airborne when she had the chance! Another Electric Tangle will do nicely, and will stop Bec from executing that deadly combo. As before, Cooldown as you watch the birdy writhe in your shocking web.
