Arena:
Following the directions to the water gym, you reach a small lake surrounded on all sides by grassy hills, darkened into grey-scale by the cloudy skies. As the path finishes, you walk down a small pontoon over the lake, and look over the side to see that it is completely still, reflecting like a mirror the brewing storm above. The only interruptions to the lake are small sheets of ice which spread out like a spider's web, clearly emanating from a hut on the other side which seems to be partially underwater.

You stand still for a moment, watching thunder strike in the distance and feeling the occasional gust of wind begin to pick up. As the ripples clear, you notice the reflection of a man riding a Pokemon out from the old hut across the lake, and looking up you see a grey-haired man dressed all in blue standing proudly atop a Lapras, looking down at you as the Lapras moves silently out.



Welcome, says the trainer. I am Athenodoros, leader of the Water Gym. He rides out further until he can step out onto one of the ice sheets, and motion Lapras to move in front of him as he continues. In this gym we pay homage to the diversity and power of water and Water-type Pokemon. We battle on the lake, using only what you might expect to find in the harsh conditions when water is the only plentiful resource. But don't worry. The ice sheets serve as viable platforms and can support a weight or carry a pulse if need be. We battle three Pokemon against three. So begin! Let us see who will release first!

Conditions:
Pokemon battle on ice sheets. This means that there are no sources of grass, but adequate rock sources exist beneath the lake and clearly water sources are not a problem. It also means that Pokemon with a density (WC/SC) of more than 1 will fall through the ice after a round standing on it, losing HP all the time they are in, which is equal to their weight class. Exceptions to this are Pokemon which can breathe underwater (Dragonite line and Water-types), are Ice-typed, are Flying-typed or levitate through trait, ability or Magnet Rise, or have the abilities to give a water or ice immunity or resistance. This effect is doubled if a seismic move weakens the ice during the round.
The overcast sky cuts the affects of Solarbeam, Synthesis, Moonlight and Morning Sun like Rain, as well as cutting the duration of non-Heat Rock sun to two rounds.

Subs brought a triplet of CAP's most broken ASB-mons, which is pretty normal when you account for the fact that all of the three have well-rounded stats, super-effective typings against Water, and good-sized movepools to back it up. What raises an eyebrow for me, is that Atheno is actually not in a mood to field his Lapras today... I wonder, is that behemoth retiring for good, or is she just chilling out in the deep for this match? In any case, I flip the coin...

RNG Roll (LEAD) [<=5000 ATHENO; >5000 SUBS]: 7892/10000 (SUBS)


As thunder rumbles, Subs draw his deals.

So, as both battlers flex their fingers, like western cowboys facing each other at noon, (which is odd considering this is the Water Gym's lake arena), an especially bright lightning bolt flashed across the patch of sky right above us. When the afterimage dies down, I find myself looking at... an exact pair. Wow.

Well, this should be interesting. gl&hf to all, and all I'll say is that I'm damn glad that I'm not ordering first here.
 
Sorry this is late
(Also awful matchup to order first in is extremely awful)

***IF Krilowatt has a substitute up, use Earthquake the first action, Earth Power the second and Earthquake the third
***IF Krilowatt is under the semi-evasive effects of dive, change that action to surf and pushback

I really have no idea which one is Actaea and which one is Fruit Ninja, from this distance. The best I could manage is perhaps a guess, looking at which one's closer to which trainer from this point. All I saw is one of them - Actaea, I think - darting forward, and touching her feelers upon the others, and all electrivity just shorted out - or got Imprisoned inside latter, which the former used to land some Thunderbolts from the skies. Desperately Struggling, the other shrimp flailed and flopped about, managing to tackle his sparking opponent. From the looks of it, it seemed the Lapras goddesses condemn SubwayJ for his blaspheming attempt at the mockery of an Enigma Berry Krilowatt....

So of course, now I have to go first and struggle. Eh.

Earth Power ~ Thunderbolt ~ Earth Power
IF
he uses Imprison over Earthquake and Earth Power, use Earthquake ~ Thunder from the next action on
IF he uses a Damaging Ground Move, use Me First

Jesus Krillowatt's movepool is huge.
 
Of all the times to be paralyzed, now is not a great one...
(Also, is this not the hardest matchup ever to order in or what?)

Mirror Coat-Metronome(Refresh, Aromatheray, Psycho Shift, Incinerate, Knock Off, Bug Bite, Pluck, Stealth Rock, Dragon Tail, Metal Burst)-Mirror Coat

(Metronome in a gym match? What?)

... Crapola, I fucked up again. Long story short, Electric-typing means you have 50% less chance of getting paralysed by an Electric attack. Thunder goes from 30% to 15%, failling the roll. Given that speed tie rolls last round wouldn't have been affected (Krilowatt-S still moves second), I'm gonna have to ask if you guys are okay with your current orders. Pre-round here.

Well, I will indeed reorder. Although it's a crying shame to stop a Metronome going through. Definitely my favourite move in ASB atm. But still:

Discharge ~ Thunder ~ Discharge
IF
he Imprisons Discharge and Thunder, use Thunderbolt ~ Electroweb from the next action on.
IF he uses Mirror Coat, use Thunder Wave the first time and Focus Punch the second time
 
Who said you were stopping metronome?

Metronome (Pluck|Bug Bite|Dragon Tail|Circle Throw|Whirlwind|Incinerate|Stealth Rock|Knock Off|Mud Sport|Heal Block)-Electroweb-Thunderpunch
***IF Pluck is selected by Metronome, change A2 to Earthquake and A3 to Earth Power
***IF Bug Bite is selected by Metronome, change A2 to Earthquake and A3 to Earth Power

... I must be imagining things. A Krilowatt, swimming around in circles, until it raised a merry-go-round that tosses off the other one. All those flurry of Thunderpunches, electrical Discharges, Webbings, and even a bolt from the sky didn't break that Whirlwind of water, and all of a sudden Actaea is scared into Atheno's Pokeball. Atheno intends to release another in Acteae's stead, but the whirlpool crashed when there's only one Krilowatt left, which washed over both battlers and soaked them to the toes. Worse still, Atheno's fingers slipped, and instead of Poseidon-Swampert, out came Nestor-Slowking! According to the agreed rules, Atheno must now play with the member he sent out. Subs face is trying in vain to hide the glee, but Atheno's still a crafty battler, whenever he's not forgetful......

Well that's somewhat less than optimal. Slowking can jsut have one of my ever-present Enigma Berry's.



But I'm sure you'll still have plenty of fun going first against this guy.
 
Sorry this is late :/

Krilowatt: Zap Cannon-ThunderPunch-Thunder
***IF Incinerate is used and you are faster and trick room is not in effect, use Me First that action and push actions back. Only do this once.
***IF Slowking is under the effects of a protective/evasive action, Chill that action

Have I ever told you all how much I dislike Zap Cannon? It's quite a lot. The bane of ordering second.

Evasive Teleport ~ Counter ~ Psychic

Please refer to previous post for pre-round stats and the pastebin link for calcs. If there's anything wrong, PM me or find me on IRC.

Atheno's Bench:
Krilowatt, 95 HP / 26 EN, Enigma Berry x2
Determined to punch a hole in his Majesty Nestor-Slowking, FN-Krilowatt couldn't resist taking a break and Chill when the former Teleported straight up to her and ask her to do so. Then comes a wrestling bout as Nestor-Slowking Counters a valiant Thunderpunch from the commoner shrimp - how dare he, a mere plebian! Munching on Enigma Berry, Nestor-Slowking raised him and threw him above water with his slow, onerous Psychic, while Thunder struck down from above to nearly knock off his crown, courtesy of FN-Krilowatt - again!

Right, not interested in Slowking going first here. So:

Switching to Actaea the Krillowatt the Krilowatt!


Counterswitch?

Discharge ~ Thunderbolt ~ Discharge
IF he uses Imprison over Discharge and Thunderbolt, use Signal Beam ~ Shock Wave ~ Signal Beam
IF he uses a protective/evasive move, Chill and move actions/subs along.

Allowing the "Eat Berry" actions, though as Pluck would consume an entire berry regardless of it's use, "Eat Berry" consumes all the Enigma Berry at A1, and with the combo disallowed, the whole queue turns into Eat > Aqua Jet > Surf.

And here we see, finally, the first knockout of the match! Actaea simply Discharges electricity while diving into the water, and Fruit Ninja twitches spasmodically, it's Enigma Berry held in it's pincer that was barely touching it's mouth. Unfortunately so, Subway's daring plan failed due to one small factor - the chance of speed. But in the long terms, the money is still hanging upon the picket fence, given Nestor-Slowking upon Atheno's left hand - which game will Subs play next?

Subs replaces Krilowatt with Item and orders above the ice
Atheno takes to the deep
I take off the binoculars
 
I've gone so far over DQ far too much, and I find this very unfair to Atheno (I'm sorry).
Because of my incompetence and how completely unfair it'd be if I somehow won this I'm forfeiting
Again, I apologize :(

Treating this as a 4v4 Singles for purposes of compensation. Also, I'm ruling out giving free counters to Atheno's whoever-it-be third team member, until I am overruled. Thanks for reading!
