Default Re: [ASB Quest] I liek Squirtles vs Blastoise

Round Eight

I liek Squirtles (2/2 left)
birth ♀ @ King's Rock
Ability: Cloud Nine Rain Dish
Health: 2%
Energy: 36%
Status: Barely hanging on to consciousness.

Blastoise ♀ @ Water Stone
Ability: Rain Dish Insomnia
Health: 80%
Energy: 56%
Status: Feeling okay. Surrounded by Aqua Ring (1% health/action). Suspended by Telekinesis (1 more action). Moderately confused (5% failure chance). 1 Chill left. +2 Defense.


Blastoise can easily see its opponent's weakness now – Psyduck is making no effort to hide the fact that it's on its last legs. But it's definitely not going to go down without a fight. Blastoise watches for a moment as Psyduck steels itself for the attack it knows is coming. Well, soon enough, it does, as Blastoise forms a ball of fighting-type energy that flies directly at Psyduck. There's no chance for the duck pokémon to dodge the attack, but it doesn't even attempt to; no, it launches itself at the attack, bursting through and striking Blastoise as hard as it can, as a final show of effort before it passes out in front of the huge turtle pokémon. The master of the Stormbound Sea gives his opponent a measure of respect as its body turns into plasma and retreats into its trainer's poké ball – it had some guts, at least.


I liek Squirtles (2/2 left)
birth ♀ @ King's Rock
Ability: Cloud Nine Rain Dish
Health: 0%
Energy: 25%
Status: Knocked Out!
Used: Endure + Frustration

Blastoise ♀ @ Water Stone
Ability: Rain Dish Insomnia
Health: 75%
Energy: 52%
Status: Ready for the next challenger. Surrounded by Aqua Ring (1% health/action). 1 Chill left. +2 Defense.
Used: Aura Sphere

Arena Status
  • The rain is pouring down. A harsh wind howls through the arena.

Damage and Energy
  • birth's Health: 2% - 10%(Aura Sphere) = 0%
  • birth's Energy: 36% - 11%(Endure+Frustration) = 25%
  • Blastoise's Health: 80% - 6%(Endure+Frustration) + 1%(Aqua Ring) = 75%
  • Blastoise's Energy: 56% - 4%(Aura Sphere) = 52%

  • Speed order: Blastoise (78) > birth (55).
  • I'm gonna say Endure + Frustration works something like Last Resort or Counter or Struggle, a last-ditch desperation attack that, while it doesn't stop the user from fainting, does allow them to launch one last attack before they do, regardless of speed. It dealt 6% (80-ish base power) damage for 11% energy.
  • As a result, birth passed out at the end of the first action.
  • ILS sends out the next pokémon, and commands first.

If I'm reffing your ASB battle, you can find my reffing scale in this document. Mostly it involves details on stat modifications and status conditions, as well as my interpretation of the damage formula, other clarifications regarding the specifics of certain attacks.
