A few miles off the coast of land a large pillar sticks out of the ocean. It reaches up into the clouds, the top blocked from view when the sky is not clear. Atop the pillar lies a square battlefield, traditional in almost every sense. However, a few important differences set this place apart from your standard Pokemon arena.

First of all, the pillar itself is hollow and filled with water, that creates a pool at the fields center, giving combatants a water source other than the sea miles below. Secondly, the field itself is exceptionally thin, and as such all Pokemon who attempt to bury through it will plummet to their demise if they cannot keep themselves aloft. Finally, at each corner of the field are pillars with what appear to be nest-like structures at the top. These features allow sky based Pokemon to rest their wings more easily.

But what is even more important than the physical features of the arena are the natural effects of the location. Due to its location above the tropical seas and the directness of the sun's rays, hail turns to rain before it ever reaches the ground. Additionally, a lack of sand makes summoning a sandstorm impossible.

However, the most prominent feature of the gym is the wind. At this high altitude, strong winds are nearly a constant. The prevailing air currents bring big gusts in from the west on a regular basis, from right behind where the gym leader stands. This provides a constant effect similar to a Tailwind at one third of normal strength for the gym leader's Pokemon. In addition, the strong winds also amplify moves that use their effects, boosting their power and their accuracy as.

Summary:

  • No Sandstorm or Hail
  • The thin battle platform prevents Dig.
    • Well technically using Dig will just cause the digging Pokemon to plummet thousands of feet into the water below, putting them out of bounds and knocking them out of the battle.
    • Flying and Levitating Pokemon who won't fall can still use Dig, but it won't actually do anything.
    • Seriously though, this is the flying gym. Why would you be using Dig anyways?
    • All other attacks are allowed.
  • Energy Cost of Roost reduced by 1.
  • Permanent Tailwind-like effect on Gym Leaders side (provides 1.33x speed boost)
  • Wind Based attacks have their base accuracy increased by 10% up to a maximum of 100%
  • Wind Based attacks have base power increased by 2
  • Wind based moves include the following: Hurricane, Razor Wind, Gust, Twister, Air Slash, Ominous Wind, Silver Wind, Heat Wave, Icy Wind (There may be others that I am forgetting)
  • Changes to the accuracy of attacks due to the wind are factored in before any other effects, such as stage boosts to accuracy or evasion.
  • All effects, including the power boost to wind moves and the Tailwind effect, are arena effects, not weather effects, and thus can not be negated by Cloud Nine, Air Lock or other such effects.

So like, Gym battles, right?

After sometime doing important stuff elsewhere, Son_of_Shadoo finally got bored and returned to the ASB. And as his debut, he challenged the Flying Gym Leader! While some may consider this a bold maybe even risky move, SoS has every tool necessary to make this...interesting, as we will see now as we analyse the teams...and the players.

The Challenged Gym Leader is Jas61292. Jas here just came from a redemptive victory in the finale of the first ASB Team Tournament against, look at the irony here, Dogfish44 aka the first dude to use Cyclohm to get an easy victory and badge. Aside from the UC and the Master Ball he will probably use eventually on a fearsome Pelipper given his past record; Jas got confidence enough to keep going as the Flying Gym Leader, hopefully getting victories for a change haha.

Pay special attention to Hatchet the Tomohawk. Hatchet is Jas's signature pokemon and always proved to be very useful regardless the enemies around. Also, half the challenger's team is tricky and having a prankster around is always good for that.

The Challenger Son_of_Shadoo is an ASB veteran really active back in the day. He was runner-up for Electric Gym Leader, so you see why this challenge isn't at all surprising. During the last months SoS was MIA, so maybe the blade has dulled a bit. Or not.

On all of the Gym Leader's losses, the opponent's team had either Cyclohm or Krillowatt. Son_of_Shadoo has both and in good conditions, so the one the watch is probably a coinflip from there. My bet in on Cyclohm, as its power always made the difference.

But enough of this, let us begin!

Order of Operations:
Heads: Gym Leader begins
Tails: Challenger begins

jas, I realise I'm absolutely terrifying, but do feel free to make orders... Unless there's circumstances I'm unaware of, in which case, call me an asshole, do whatever it is you need to and forget I said anything.

Ok, Ok, lets get down to business. I've kinda been away from asb for a bit, so lets hope I don't suck (any more than normal).

Ledian, Honchkrow. Lets go.

Ledian: Toxic (Dusknoir) - Light Screen - Reflect
If Dusknoir uses Brick Break on you action 2 or 3, Protect once and Dig (Krilowatt) on any further Brick Breaks.

Honchkrow: Snarl - Foul Play (Dusknoir) - Snarl
If Dusknoir uses Brick Break on you action 2 or 3, Detect once and Fly (Dusknoir) on any further Brick Breaks.
If Dusknoir uses Protect, Tailwind that action and push back, but only once.
 
#5
Sorry, but that won't quite work on me, my friend.

Mia: Imprison (Ledian) >>> Rock Slide >>> Brick Break (Ledian)
IF Rock Slide is disallowed because of the arena (which it shouldn't, as there's no mention of it being banned), use ThunderPunch (Ledian) A2.

Hijinks: Bodyblock (Mia) >>> Thunder (Ledian) >>> Blizzard
 
#6
son_of_Shadoo, I need you to specify which moves you are gonna imprison.

For reference:

Imprison: The Pokemon binds itself mentally to all opponents momentarily, sealing off up to three moves shared between the Pokemon and any of its foes (a move shared between only one foe and the user will be blocked, e.g. if Opponent A and user have Psychic and Opponent B and user have Disable, both moves will be blocked even if Opponent A lacks Disable and Opponent B lacks Psychic) for six (6) actions. The relevant opponent may not use those sealed moves; however, the user of Imprison can.

Round 1!​

And now we begin!

The challenger begins by sending out Mia the Dusknoir and Hijinks the Krillowatt. Personally I am surprised that Amelie wasn't sent out, but there should be a reason. Regardless, that is a strong and sturdy pair that should be enough to kick the match in a high gear.

The Gym Leader sends out Lafayette the Honchkrow and Lucas the Ledian. Unlike previous matches, when the Leader went all-out from the get-go (and lost precious pokemon due to ordering first), now he opts for a safer approach, with a combination of support and power.

Hijinks begins the match by trying to Bodyblock Mia...but the Dusknoir is so big and Krillowatt so small that it just failed! Because of that, Lucas Toxic'd Mia as planned, and Lafayette damaged both with Snarl, while reducing their special attack. Finally, Mia Imprisons Protect, Substitute and Toxic, bringing great joy to your ref, since this means that the match will end faster!

On the second turn, Hijinks manages to strike Lucas with Thunder right before the Ledian sets up Light Screen. Lafayette focuses on the Dusknoir and uses Foul Play to deal quite some damage...but not as much as Mia dealt with Rock Slide, especially considering how it hit Honchkrow on its weak spot!

Finally, Hijinks attacks from the special side of the spectrum once again with Blizzard, but Light Screen + Snarl made it weak as...something very weak. Lucas sensed danger and tried to Protect, but the move was imprisioned!, Lafayette attacked again with Snarl and Mia ended the round for shattering Light Screen with Brick Break.

And this wraps up round 1. Both Battlers are pretty much on equal grounds. The Challenger has a very small lead on HP, but the Leader will order last next round so anything can happen!

So I forgot how Bodyblock worked and did pitiful damage. Great.

Hijinks: Heart Swap (Honchkrow) >>> Thunderbolt (Ledian) >>> Thunder (Honchkrow)
If Ledian uses Encore A1, use Protect (self) and push actions down.
If Honchkrow uses Protect A1, use Substitute (15) A1 and Heart Swap (Krow) A2.

Mia: Will-O-Wisp (Honchkrow) >>> Rock Slide >>> Fire Punch (Ledian)
If Ledian uses Light Screen, and it is not Protected, use Brick Break that action and push actions down.
If Honchkrow is behind a Substitute A1, use Rock Slide A1 and WoW (Krow) A2.

As a side note, I'm away this weekend, so I won't be able to order again til afterwards. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Honchkrow: Thunder Wave (Kril) - Psycho Shift (Dusknoir) - Roost

Ledian: Safeguard - Roost - Dig (Krilowatt)
If tormented, change action 2 and 3 to Drain Punch (Kril) - Supersonic (Kril)
If Kril protects action 3 and you are not tormented and Dusk is not KOd, target Dusknoir instead

Honchkrow: Foul Play (Dusknoir) - Night Slash (Dusknoir) - Foul Play (Dusknoir)
If burned and not tormented, Psycho Shift it to Dusknoir
If Dusknoir uses protective move, Dark Pulse (Kril)
If Dusknoir is KOd, Dark Pulse (Kril)

Ledian learns Dig? Huh. Learn something new every day I suppose.

Dusknoir: Rock Slide >>> ThunderPunch (Honchkrow) >>> Ice Beam (Krow)

Krillowatt: Ice Shardx2 (Ledian) >>> cooldown >>> Thunderbolt (Krow)
If you are fully paralysed A1, then use the combo A2.

EDIT: Ice Shard combo target entered. I am a dumb.

Dat flavour. Literary genius.

Nidoqueen will be a suitable match, I hope. Let's see if we can't push him into a corner. Seems like the best thing to do is pour on the pressure. Also, jas, just noticed, your Honchkrow has Double Team listed in its moveset twice.

Nidoqueen (Enable Sheer Force, disable Poison Point): Ice Beam >>> Flamethrower >>> Ice Beam (all Gliscor)
If Gliscor uses Protect non-consecutively AND you are not Taunted, Chill and use Disable (Protect) the following action.

Krillowatt: Ice Shard x2 (Honchkrow) >>> Cooldown >>> Blizzard
If fully paralysed A1, use the combo A2 and push actions down.
If Honckrow uses Protect A1, use Ice Beam (Gliscor) and push actions down.

Sorry for the wait. Been a busy few days.

So, umm... yeah.

"Switch = KO Pokemon cannot be switched out during battle or they will be KOed." -the rules

So, if I switch out Honchkrow, it will be KOd. Totally worth it. Honckrow, you did a great job, but its time to let Unfezant show its stuff for once.

Anyways, since I'm not actually sure the mechanics of this, I'll assume it is like any other switch in that you can counter it, if you want to KO one of your own guys.
