Arena Description: We are playing... in a giant litter box. That's right, a giant litter box. Of course the trainers are standing outside of it, and besides it's clean anyway... right? Ground and rock type attacks are boosted 3%. Obvious cat types (Skitty, Purrloin, Meowth, Glameow, maybe more) gain 1.5% speed. (Would this mean that like, Purrloin with 66 speed gets 99 speed on the arena? Correct me if I am wrong.) (And also is this legal?)

idk 1.5% isn't much
I'll take this

What would be reasonable? (For future things. I have no idea how to do the proportions on this. I'm not going to change it now though.)

I think you mean 1.5x, not 1.5%.

I took a look at this before I joined, and it looked cool. I wasn't expecting it to reopen this quickly.
Anyways, since there don't seem to be any open challenges, here's one for my first battle.
Format: 2vs2 single
Style: Set
DQ: One week
Damage Cap: 35%
Banned/Restricted Moves: OHKOs
Arena Description: A Flat, Grassy Expanse
The arena is a grassy plain, with little variation in height. If a person weren't paying attention, they might describe it as sunny, but, despite the brightness, there aren't actually any celestial bodies visible in the sky. The grass waves slightly, despite there not being any noticeable wind. Trampled grass, or any alterations made to the battlefield, will correct themselves once nobody's looking at them. It doesn't seem to have any borders. How the battlers got there is a small mystery.
Flying pokemon are advised not to go higher than about one and a third kilometers above the ground. The battling pokemon are also advised not to get so far away from each other that they're out each out of the other's sight range, although visual obstruction shouldn't cause problems.

YES that's exactly what I meant. I totally forgot how that worked for a moment I guess. ZM you still taking this? Sorry for the misunderstanding. (If its a dealbreaker then I guess we'll still play it like the original.)

Ja, I was making a joke based on the typo. But tbh x1.2 would be a bit more reasonable.

Posting an open challenge since none of my broskis have returned yet.

Format: 1v1 single

Style: Set

DQ Time: 5 days

Damage Cap: 30%

Banned/Restricted Moves: OHKOs, recovery moves, Chills limited to 3/pokemon

Arena Description: Just A Plain-Ass Field

That's it, it's literally just a field. It's grassy. The sky is nice and blue and ripe for weather moves. There's a pond over there for water-types. It's pretty flat and overall boring. The designated arena is about two Wailords long and one Wailord wide. Anything goes, you know unless it's in the banned moves.

Additional Rules: Nope.

Arena Description: Inside the Magic Typewriter

It was a dark, stormy night...

The inner workings of the giant, omnipotent magic typewriter are yours to destroy battle in. For those refs/battlers who aren't familiar with how a typewriter works, neither am I what's important is that when the letters are hit, metal blocks with letter-shaped engravings fly up on poles and smack a black ink ribbon. There's a platform within that's of an arbitrary size; it's big enough for the battlers and it's big enough that there's no danger of falling off. There's enough room for any sort of movement, but there's no water, and there's no earth, so no digging. Just a platform for standing.

At the end of the round, a sentence is typed into the typewriter. The typewriter, being magic, will then warp reality for the next round. This warp is up to the referee after the first round, and the effects disappear at the end of the round. The warp must also be impartial, and affect both battlers equally. When the sentence is entered, the letters go flying, so at the end of the round, each Pokemon has a 10% chance (25% if they have not moved from the spot they began the round in) of being smacked with a metal letter and pressed into the ink ribbon; this will cause 3% damage and cover the Pokemon in black ink for the next round, raising evasion by 1 and lowering accuracy by 1 (unless the Pokemon has no eyes/is blind). This ink can be washed off with water, but will also fade at the end of the next round.

The first round begins with the classic "It was a dark, stormy night..." which causes the first round of the battle to have rainy weather.

Edit: because a third party arena effect was a late-night idea and is completely unnecessary since the ref can do it.
