Team YAS
Rinkah was the first Pokémon to join Silver's team after leaving his hometown. She comes from a very traditional family and has a strict sense of honour, which is why she aims to travel the world in search of combat that will bring glory for herself and for her House. Rinkah is typically stern and calm; however, combat is her greatest release. In the midst of battle, she usually drops her serious demeanor and becomes much more relaxed, mainly because she can rarely keep herself from laughing in the heat of battle. All the guts, all the glory is her favorite phrase, and it kinda makes her wish she had Guts. Peanut butter on toast is her favorite food.

Rinkah - Pangoro (F).
Stage: 3
Type: Fighting/Dark

Dark STAB;
immune to all status moves used by a Pokémon with the Prankster ability (as well as all moves summoned by a Prankster-boosted non-damaging move).

Belladonna is the first--and so far only--Pokémon that Silver has caught. Silver only did this because Belladonna was scaring Zelda, and he thought that if he caught the Ghost Pokémon she would stop staring. Belladonna's red-eyed stared remains, however, as does Zelda's apprehension for her teammate. The fact that it took an inordinately long time for Belladonna to speak her first words did nothing to soothe Zelda's nerves, although her lack of words could be explained by the fact that the small Nohface didn't have a face at the time.

After evolution, however, Belladonna did grow a face--five of them, to be precise. And just as Silver had hoped, the addition of faces has allowed Belladonna to speak in a voice that others can hear. Three voices, in fact, since it seems that the faces can communicate independently of each other. Belladonna's regular voice seems to come from her front face, while the heads above her shoulders seem to communicate in whispers. The faces above her hind legs appear to be reserved for blood-curdling screams and terrifying howls, but also for some foreign languages, like German.

Zelda still wishes B would stop staring at her.

Belladonna - Kitsunoh (F).

Man, we're a bit late to the starting line, aren't we?
Anyway, welcome to the second semifinal of this tournament! This match opposes S0L1D G0LD, whose skill I can personally attest to, and YellowAdminSilver, who really didn't want this scenario to play out! This will make for an interesting and skillful match!
As always, let's have a preliminary team analysis. Immediately, we can see SG's Gardevoir being a threat to half of YAS's team, though the other half handles it somewhat. I can't see Copperajah or Snorlax being very useful here, being at a big disadvantage type-wise. There are niche uses and specific matchups they can win, so we'll have to see how SG manages to make the most out of them.
On the opposite side, YAS has more volatile matchups, with notably Kerfluffle being key against Conkeldurr and Kitsunoh being a much-needed answer to Gardevoir. Matchup control will be especially important here if he want to deadlock SG into checkmate, so let's see if he can lay traps accordingly.
However, matchups are nothing in the face of true skill, so let's get to the fight already! Second sendout will probably be crucial here!


Coin toss: 1-5000: SG | 5001-10000: YAS
rolled 8039 ==> YAS!
YellowAdminSilver sends out and equips

Let's get this party started!
 

"Oh noes.
I really REALLY really don't wanna do this, and I REALLY really ReaLLY don't wanna fight this lineup."


"The Copper is a surprise."


"Yeah, Copper is a surprise.
Here's something that isn't at all surprising, tho."


yas you predictable bitch Sending out Belladonna the Kitsunoh @ Expert Belt!
 
Am I missing something, YAS?


Snorlax @ Chople Berry

Heat Crash - High Horsepower - Heat Crash

If Metal Burst in a combination and Kitsunoh is not behind a Substitute, use Reflect on the first instance, and Chill on the second, pushing back in each case.
If self-switching move, use Pursuit that action and push back.
If d/e move and you move after Kitsunoh based on speed order, use Metronome (Sticky Web, Fly, Phantom Force, Stealth Rock, Spikes, Dive, Trick Room, Toxic Spikes, Shell Trap, Fairy Lock) on the first instance, and Pursuit on the second or third instances, pushing back in each case.

Calling DQ.

2 Pokémon have actually been sent out, so I'll calculate the rewards based on that.
