i really like designing modes that allow the player to use more combinations (gear4, quag4). level 4 is where you get all the cool combo moves and leaning into those allows for much more fun and creative play. the opponents, of course, have a lot of fun with it as well

Castle
Fighting | Other | User | --- BAP | --- Acc | 10 EN | --- Chance | No Contact | Priority 0 | CT: None
The Pokemon constructs a sturdy bunker around themselves, preparing to attack from behind cover.

When attempting this move, tally the user's current stat boosts and subtract all stat drops. If this total is less than 3, Castle fails.

Place a Castled marker on the user until they leave play, with the following effect:
  • The user takes 6 less damage from Pokemon without a Castled marker, and their attacks gain a +1 power bonus against Pokemon without a Castled marker.
  • The user's attacks gain a +2 power bonus against Pokemon with a Castled marker.
Mode 4: [Pawn Break] When Kingambit deals 10 or less damage with an attack, the foe's Defense and Special Defense stages are lowered by two (2) for their next four (4) turns. If this attack was a combination, additionally inflict Paralysis on the defender with a 100% effect chance.
Mode 5: [Immortal Game] Kingambit knows Taunt. Kingambit and their teammates gain access to the custom move Brilliant Sacrifice.
Brilliant Sacrifice
Dark | Other | User | --- BAP | --- Acc | 20 EN | --- Chance | No Contact | Priority 1 | CT: None
The Pokemon spots an opening in the position. Letting down their guard, they try to bait the foe into overextending.

When this move is used, note the user's current HP.

For the remainder of the round, the user's Defense and Special Defense stages are treated as being -6 while the user is being attacked.

If the user is knocked out by an attack in a round where Brilliant Sacrifice was used: Permanently decrease the Defense and Special Defense ranks of all opposing Pokemon (even Benched ones) by a value equal to (the noted HP / 8), rounded up. Stat ranks decreased this way can't drop below 0.

Mode 3: I kind of wish I could play around with Size Class and making Swallow damaging but I'm not that evil. Ignore Mode 5 ta.
Mode 4: Gives a lot of flexibility, but with counterplay avenues. Berries are strong, but shouldn't be overwhelming. Belch gives an incentive to STAB Beatstick for good measure.
Mode 5: Liquid Ooze + Game of Attrition. <3

Mode 1: Reduce (species)'s CR by one (1). Challenger only gets one (1) sub.
Mode 2: [Sensei] Upon being sent out, Hariyama's Evasion Stage is raised by two for six (6) steps. Each time an opponent's attack misses Hariyama, reduce Hariyama's evasion by one for their next three (3) turns without extension, and increase the attacker's Attack and Special Attack Stage by one (1) for the next three (3) steps.
Mode 3: [Test of Strength] Upon being sent out, Hariyama uses Belly Drum as a bonus action.
Mode 4: [Sumo Wrestler] When Hariyama deals damage, reduce the hit Pokémon's energy by Hariyama's Weight Class, multiplied by 1.5. When Hariyama uses Strength, increase Hariyama's Defense and Special Defense stage by two (2) for its next two (2) turns, and also increase its Weight Class by one (1).
Mode 5: [Hugo's Legacy] Hariyama knows Drain Punch. Hariyama enters play Paralysed with zero (0) paralysis counters. Hariyama's #Punch moves each become a two-hit attack, where the second hit has one quarter (x0.25) the original attack's power.

Mode 2: Some of Hariyama's 'dex entries mention training! And we *all* know the anime trope of the sensei who seems to be able to dodge *everything*. See Gran Torino... uh... I should watch more anime...
Mode 3: Less HP, more Strongth, lots of interactions, play ball.
Mode 4: Hariyama becomes a fairly scary defensive booster who plays a game of "screw your EN". Wanted to highlight Strength here because the move's new effects are Pretty Interesting TM. (Even though I also wanted to do something with the arena doing passive trapping but liiines and cooooomplexity)
Mode 5: Expands on Hariyama's broad L0 coverage, grants a semi-competent STAB, and triggers Guts for free. You could honestly toss on a half-Expert Belt effect but if I steal all the items then there would be no items left (this would be terrible).

Garganacl receives the move around which much of its identity is built and a bevy of new interactions between it and the rest of its movepool. Complementary to its role as a defensive juggernaut, Garganacl is thereby pushed into slower games of attrition.

Mode 1: Reduce Ninjask's CR by one (1). Challenger only gets one (1) sub.
Mode 2: [After-Image] On a turn where Ninjask used a combination, Ninjask uses Shadow Claw at priority -6 as a triggered action. Ninjask has STAB on Shadow Claw used this way.
Mode 3: [Ninja's Tricks] On turns where Ninjask is the first Pokemon to act: Attacks targeting Ninjask have a power penalty of three (3) if the user has a major status condition, and accuracy checks made against Ninjask with a less than 75% chance to succeed will automatically fail.
Mode 4: [Deadly Precision] Ninjask knows Dig and U-turn. Ninjask's critical hit stage is always two (2). When Ninjask lands a critical hit, they gain Evasive against single-target actions for the rest of the step.
Mode 5: [Total Invisibility] Ninjask and their teammates know Baton Pass. Double Team used by Ninjask and their teammates can be extended. Ninjask's X-Scissor uses Electro Ball's damage formula (8 * user Speed / defender Speed, rounded up).

Mode 1: Reduce Tatsugiri's CR by one (1). Challenger only gets one (1) sub.
Mode 2: [Play Dead] When Tatsugiri's HP first drops below 30, place a Switching marker on Tatsugiri and remove any major status conditions from Tatsugiri.
Mode 3: [Seafood Delight] At the start of the battle, roll a d3 to determine whether Tatsugiri will be Curly, Droopy, or Stretchy form. Each form has special mechanics, detailed here:
  • Curly Form: Tatsugiri knows Nasty Plot. When Tatsugiri enters play, they may equip either a Hondew Berry, a Roseli Berry, or a Salac Berry, at the cost of 10 EN.
  • Droopy Form: Tatsugiri knows Chilling Water. Tatsugiri's damaging attacks have a 30% effect chance of inflicting Burn against foes with an Attack stage below 0.
  • Stretchy Form: Tatsugiri knows Baton Pass. When Tatsugiri enters play, their Speed is increased by one (1) stage for their next six (6) turns. Opposing teams' substitutions that cover only Tatsugiri's Counter or Mirror Coat in a positive Attack Clause (including, for example, "If Tatsugiri is to use a damaging Psychic-type move") count as 2 subs.
Mode 4: [Dragon's Tactics] When Tatsugiri uses a damaging Dragon-type move, and Tatsugiri does not have a Switching marker, apply Switching to Tatsugiri. After Tatsugiri switches out as a result of this effect, increase their teammate's Attack and Special Attack stages by two (2) for their next three (3) turns, without extension.
Mode 5: [Marine Mastermind] While Tatsugiri is on the bench, they may use an attack at the end of each round (just before the cleanup phase), targeting an opposing Pokemon. Tatsugiri is not considered to be in play during this attack, and they cannot be targeted by moves or effects. Attacks used this way have their final damage halved (x0.5). When Tatsugiri enters play, if they are the only Pokemon on their team: Tatsugiri learns Nasty Plot, and effects cannot prevent Tatsugiri from using moves.

Progress is slow, I've been swamped with work lately and generally tired.

At this point there are more submissions than are likely to be implemented at launch. Any submissions that are not implemented at launch, I will keep note of for inevitable roster rotations.

Ooraloo I like your submissions. My only issue is with Lucario's Mode names; it doesn't seem to me like they're very thematic for the species. I get M3, "Versatile," given its mechanical toolkit and its tendency in spin-off games to be an all-rounder type character. But M2 "Bicurious," M4 "One Minute Man," and M5 "Witch Hunt" seem a bit out of place (some of them might be suggestive too). Do you have recommendations for alternative names?
 
For completeness' sake, here are the remaining Pokemon on my computer:

Set three, with commentary:

Aurumoth
Bug/Psychic
Weak Armor / No Guard / Light Metal
100/9/7/8/5/94 | 4/5

CR -2: (Leave empty)
CR -1: (Leave empty)
CR 0: (Leave empty)
CR 1: (Leave empty)

Mode 1: Reduce (species)'s CR by one (1). Challenger only gets one (1) sub.
Mode 2: [Entomania] All active Pokemon learn Bug Bite. Increase the power of Bug-type attacks by two (2) for each Bug-type Pokemon in the player's and Tree's teams. If a Pokemon is weak to Bug-type attacks, increase their weakness to Bug-type attacks by one stage.
Mode 3: [Cryohemokinesis] Aurumoth learns Leech Life. When a Pokemon inflicts damage with a contact attack: place one (1) Bleed counter on the defender, to a maximum of three (3); a Pokemon with at least one Bleed counter is affected by the unique minor status "Bleeding:"
Bleeding said:
By default, this status lasts six (6) actions, or until the subject leaves play. At the end of each step: the subject loses one (1) HP per Bleed counter they possess.
When Aurumoth has at least one Bleed counter: increase the BAP of its attacks by a number equal to the number of Bleed counters it possesses. When Aurumoth inflicts damage with Psychic: exchange each Bleed counter on the defender for three (3) Frost counters.
Mode 4: [Hellbent] As Aurumoth is issued orders, any of its attacks that have a BAP may be given the optional parameter (Infernal X), where "X" is an integer between 1 and 5 inclusive. Infernal attacks cannot be fully Protected against, and a defender that is granted Protection will only block 75% of the calculated damage. When calculating damage for an Infernal attack: increase its BAP by 2X. After using an infernal attack: inflict 10X% of the calculated damage as recoil to Aurumoth.
Mode 5: [Venite Adoremus] Aurumoth holds a Weakness Policy and learns Quiver Dance and Stored Power. Whenever Aurumoth is sent out: the Tree ref may place an Illusory token on a benched ally Pokemon. When a benched Pokemon gains an Illusory token: Aurumoth may select two of the following effects:
  • Aurumoth replaces one or both of its types by one (or both) of that Pokemon's type(s),
  • Aurumoth gains that Pokemon's copyable abilities, or
  • Once per round, Aurumoth may use a move from that ally's move list.
These benefits persist until the corresponding Pokemon loses its Illusory token. Multiple Pokemon may possess Illusory tokens.

During the cleanup phase, if Aurumoth has taken damage from a hit during the round: remove all Illusory tokens from benched Pokemon.

Aurumoth explores decreasing degrees of risks associated with specific game elements, wielding powerful Modes to provide varied challenges to the player. Its weaker forms utilize shared/global boons that provide the challenger with opportunities to punish Aurumoth, as Mode 2 introduces a randomly-scaling boost to Aurumoth's weaker STAB type at the cost of equipping every opponent a silver bullet, and Mode 3 allows players to accrue passive damage with the same ease as the intended beneficiary; however, in usual form, Aurumoth derives more use from these effects than do its opponents, and the latter contains secondary buffs to help Aurumoth control the battle's pace. Mode 4 contains a simple effect that grants Aurumoth the ability to empower its attacks by sacrificing its HP, and can be regulated by the referee to foster a greater challenge to the player. Lastly, Mode 5 reimagines Aurumoth's notorious former ability and moveset for the new BBP system, creating a terrifying setup sweeper with a limitless bag of tricks, albeit carrying a minor dependence on the health of its team.

Mode 1: Reduce (species)'s CR by one (1). Challenger only gets one (1) sub.
Mode 2: [Dreadful Form] Dusknoir learns Infestation. If Dusknoir is hit by a contact attack from a Pokemon that is not Cursed and Dusknoir has >70% of its maximum HP: Dusknoir uses Curse as a bonus action. If Dusknoir is hit by a non-contact attack from a Pokemon that is not Cursed and Dusknoir has between 40% and 70% of its maximum HP: Dusknoir uses Curse as bonus action. Dusknoir's Curse lasts three (3) steps, regardless of its HP expenditure.
Mode 3: [Spirit Warden] Dusknoir learns Rapid Spin. At the beginning of the battle, after the Tree Pokemon have been selected and before the first sendout: add two (2) 5-HP Duskulls to the Tree's bench. When a Ghost-type Pokemon faints as a result of damage received from a hit: inflict Curse on the attacker for three (3) steps.
Mode 4: [I Checkmate Thee] Increase Dusknoir's maximum HP by 10. Dusknoir learns Sucker Punch. When Dusknoir deals damage with an attack: place one (1) Doom counter on the defending Pokemon. When Dusknoir defends against an attack: reduce the final damage by a number equal to five (5) times the number of Doom counters on the attacker.
Mode 5: [Escort of the Damned] While Dusknoir is active: all other active Pokemon gain the Doomed status and the Doom condition is incremented at the end of each step. When Dusknoir is benched: active Pokemon lose all Doom counters they may possess. Whenever a Pokemon that does not have the Ghost type faints: Create a copy of that Pokemon with the Ghost-type and 25% of the Pokemon's maximum HP, and place it on the Tree's bench. While Dusknoir has >0 HP: allied Ghost-type Pokemon cannot faint from hits.

Dusknoir is designed so that its respectable bulk and potent defensive abilities can be utilized to promote tactical gameplay by threatening the challenger with our nastiest conditions. Fitting for a low-difficulty encounter, Mode 2 is usually a pure detriment to Dusknoir, as the prescribed duration of Curse roughly breaks even with its HP cost, and Dusknoir's survival is jeopardized much sooner than that of its attacker; furthermore, Dusknoir's sacrifice may be lost unless it spends an action to deliberately trap its opponent, allowing for more interplay within the matchup. Similarly, Mode 3 introduces the possibility of Curse as a result of careless planning for Dusknoir's minions, encouraging solutions such as entry hazards or major status conditions to neutralize these token foes. As a result, Dusknoir is granted Rapid Spin to better challenge players, and in reference to its former Error move. Mode 4 carries a sizeable increase in difficulty, as the challenger is tasked with defeating an increasingly resilient opponent while managing two shrinking pools of resources, and Dusknoir obtains a tool with which it can punish aggressive strategies. Finally, Mode 5 shifts Dusknoir to a supportive role, leveraging Dusknoir's base characteristics in a manner that pressures challengers to corner and defeat a conduit of resurrection without reckless expenditures, lest the battle becomes dominated by a horde of pseudo-immortal minions.

When an opponent makes contact with Golisopod: inflict two (2) damage to that opponent. On sendout: Golisopod becomes Sluggish for three (3) steps. Golisopod always moves last in its priority bracket. Golisopod cannot use Tactical Retreat while Sluggish.
Mode 3: [Flaying Minor Limbs] Golisopod learns First Impression. Once per round, when Golisopod deals damage with a contact attack: Golisopod uses Fury Cutter as a bonus action. When Golisopod deals damage with a move that is marked with the #Slicing tag: place one (1) Bleed counter on the defender, to a maximum of three (3); a Pokemon with at least one Bleed counter is affected by the unique minor status "Bleeding:"
Bleeding said:
By default, this status lasts six (6) actions, or until the subject leaves play. At the end of each step: the subject loses one (1) HP per Bleed counter they possess.
Mode 4: [Harmonious Form] Golisopod learns Leech Life. While Golisopod has >50% of its maximum HP: Golisopod may take no more than 25% of its maximum HP from a single attack. When Golisopod has a retreat marker, it gains access to the command Tactical Feint:
Tactical Feint said:
**Triggered Command: Tactical Feint**
--- BAP, 0 en, typeless, --- Acc, Status, CT: None
(If the user has no retreat marker, this command fails)
Golisopod gains Evasive against the next attack that targets it.
Mode 5: [Nemesis] On sendout: increase Golisopod's four core stats by two (2) ranks each. When Golisopod has a retreat marker, it gains access to the command False Defeat:
False Defeat said:
**Triggered Command: False Defeat**
--- BAP, 0 en, typeless, --- Acc, Status, CT: None
(If the user has no retreat marker, or the user attempts to use this command in the final battle of the Tree, this command fails)
Remove all minor statuses and stat changes from Golisopod, restore Golisopod's HP and EN by 50% of their respective maxima, and remove Golisopod from the battle. At the beginning of the next battle, after the Tree Pokemon have been determined: add Golisopod to the Tree's Bench. Furthermore, Golisopod gains the following traits:
  • On sendout: reduce Golisopod's five core stats each by a number equal to the number of usages of False Defeat during this roleplay.
  • Reduce Golisopod's maximum HP by 22*(number of previous usages of False Defeat during this roleplay).

Golisopod draws inspiration from its Pokedex entries to create a series of flavorful modes, often manipulating its signature ability to produce a powerful effect; this creates partial counterplay in the form of ability manipulation, but the susceptible modes carry ability-independent effects to maintain a threatening presence in such scenarios. Mode 2 rebalances Golisopod's core stats to exaggerate its defensive capabilities, but inflicts a slew of drawbacks onto its wielder; nevertheless, physical attackers will certainly find opportunities to explore statuses and boosting moves found in the early ranks, thus avoiding an unfortunate case of matchup polarization. In deviation from the overarching theme of Emergency Exit, Mode 3 opts to emphasize Golisopod's offensive prowess, revisiting the semi-unique minor status introduced in Aurumoth's corresponding Mode to accrue passive damage while fostering the growth of a dangerous bonus action; of note, this also marks the sole appearance of Golisopod's once-signature move, which finds a purpose as either a single-use answer to the D/E moves that otherwise plague this set, or as a late-game cleanup tool, when paired with Fury Cutter, should the player fail to defeat Golisopod in a timely manner. Once again, Mode 4 aims to thoroughly test the skill of the player, reviving what was possibly ASB's most egregious combination of Item/Ability interactions to create a formidable tank that eludes most attempts at scoring a knockout; however, despite its foreboding appearance, the movepool restrictions of this facility and general power creep of subsequent generations should prevent this Mode from overwhelming challengers. Rounding out this set of Modes is the fifth, a generic power boost that accompanies an unorthodox survival option: should the referee fail to position the challenger for a loss before Golisopod is substantially weakened, the battle may be effectively conceded to spike the difficulty of the following bout with the addition of a third Pokemon, but subsequent failures will quickly diminish the value of Golisopod's presence.

During a switch phase, if Celebi is not fainted: instead of switching Pokemon normally, the Tree may select a previous round of the battle and initiate the following effect: Remove Celebi from the battle, bench the active Pokemon on the Tree's team in the selected round, and replace it by Celebi; if the previous round's Celebi was not fainted, it is removed from the battle. The Battle Tree then continues as two concurrent battles: the round in which the switch phase was initiated, and the round into which Celebi entered; additionally, the following rules are added:
  • Future rounds for both battles are refereed in the same post.
  • Each concurrent battle extends the requisite number of posts per round by one; turn order follows the pattern: A or B > [B then A] OR [B then A] > B or A, where A and B are the rounds in which the parent effect was triggered or that it targeted, respectively.
  • If every Pokemon belonging to either the challenger or the Tree faints, the concurrent battle ends as if the same conclusion was reached.

For my self-reference, a gathering of notes/adjustments from the first wave of test runs thus far:

Simple adjustments:
> Items: OFF for the challenger, in order to limit the number of options that I must design around.
> Reduce the HP and defensive ranks of ref Pokemon, and also increase their damage output, in order to keep gameplay moving swiftly. This is to compensate for Items: OFF.
> Ref Pokemon must have engaging effects in every Mode. Otherwise the run becomes too dull.

Core value changes:
> Moving forward, the designer may freely adjust all the properties of ref Pokemon. I had originally intended to maintain statlines, movepools, and other species properties as much as possible, but doing so is proving too costly. Balance is more important.
> Avoid complex terminology in Mode effects. For example, instead of doing this:
"While Espeon is active, when the foe attacks: skip that attack's accuracy check and direct damage calculation, and that attack creates a stackable Delayed Attack with its name on Espeon's team."

consider doing this:
"When Espeon is hit, after damage calculation: wait until the end of Step 1 of the following round to apply the damage. (On-hit effects still resolve normally.)"

As an entry-level Facility, Tree's design should prioritize clarity and approachability when possible. Although the first phrasing is more precise, the second is much easier to understand. Therefore, it is preferable.

Balance considerations:
> In general, Pokemon don't gain a whole lot of extra damage output from leveling up (aside from occasional blowout moves like Meteor Beam or Pain Split). So, instead of making the ref Pokemon's numerical power scale up across levels like I planned to do, I should consider making numerical power roughly constant across all levels. Mode effects can become more difficult to play around, rather than simply being more explosive.
> Strong abilities on ref Pokemon are extremely difficult to design around. Possibly shift format to Abilities: One in order to free up design space.
> When a Mode effect contains multiple individual buffs, always consider them to be cumulative in power, even if they do not initially appear to be related to each other.
> Restricting the moves the challenger can order represents a MASSIVE allocation of power budget. Stop forgetting that! Even an effect that equates to a lingering Torment effect has oppressive numerical ramifications. (Remember: there does not exist a bad Sealing move.)
> Mode effects that last a short duration must be designed with Protect in mind.
> Gen9 Pokemon will not have sufficient movepools if I do not take liberties with their movepools.

Progress update:

cityscapes is eligible to claim 10 JC for private assistance with creation of the new Tree ranking chart. The chart is not quite ready to share yet, but it contains exactly two tiers of Pokemon. I don't expect it to cause much contention.

Since I changed the standards for ref mons (again) I will need to recompose a full list of ref profiles. I have already begun work on that, and although I cannot use every player-submitted profile or Mode effect from this thread (for various reasons related to variety, balance, flavor, etc) I will make efforts to use what suggestions I can. There is a lot of good stuff in this thread.

The data from the test runs were extremely helpful. If I can find a way to perform more tests without introducing delays to my timeline, I will consider running them. If I do end up conducting tests, they will not be full Tree runs like the previous wave. Rather, they will be much smaller in scope; likely single battles.

If I work hard and things go well, then I hope to have Tree open within two months.

Hi, everybody! I'm still working on this Facility. It's gone through some substantial system changes (again), but I've made an effort to still utilize as much of the input from this thread as I can.

At this point of development, my main priority is that I want to make sure the user guides for this Facility are understandable and readable. To that end, I will not be listing any of the Facility changes in this post.

I would appreciate if anybody interested in the Facility reads the updated Signup Thread and Ref's Guide, and posts any questions they have about these materials into this thread. If you are only interested in challenging the Facility and are not interested in reffing, then the Signup Thread alone should be sufficient reading.

Please only use the supplemental materials (Google Docs, etc) that are directly linked from the new Signup Thread and the Ref's Guide. Any older materials that are not directly linked from those two threads is out-of-date.

Thank you for your patience. Aside from some minor editing and a few administrative details, I believe that this Facility should be ready for a (partial?) launch as-is.
