Although designed to be a state-of-the-art battling facility and located at the very heart of ASB Central's battle district, ASB Central Stadium actually sees very little use. Most battlers prefer the infinite variety of the holodrome's simulated arenas to the basic, if impressive, stadium field, and official tournaments tend to feature tours of other regions rather than a homefield brawl. There's nothing much to say about the battlefield: it's a large, rectangular arena covered in astroturf. A circular pool will open in its center if a Pokémon requiring water to move around in is sent out. In this arena, Pokémon can summon absolutely anything they need for their attacks: tidal waves, boulders, and so on are in ready supply.

Let's go, Pertina! You shall shine! This battle is your rite-of-passage into a Seadra, so make us proud! And, you're battling the referee of your very first battle ever! You've already grown so much!

In the name of His Eminence, King Tassorosso of Boo Foo Woo (long may he reign)... Rayfa, come forth!

Let's keep a bit of distance from the center pool for now, so that you're not easily reached by contact moves. Start with a Natural Gift —it's nice that after 5 years of this going to be changed soon, I can still abuse my free Normal-type Aura Sphere, eh? Then sing your praises to your king with Hyper Voice, and then let's find out what your Hidden Power is! If your opponent has clones on the second or third action, use Swift to take them out. Natural Gift would be better, but whatev.

If you're unable to reach your opponent for some reason, work yourself up. You promised to double your milk intake from now on, didn't you?

Natural Gift / Work Up ~ Hyper Voice / Swift / Work Up ~ Hidden Powder / Swift / Work Up

Man, I'm really rusty at this game.

If you're going to be confined to the center pool, Pertina, then we should be able to take advantage of your Swift Swim, which means you'll definitely be faster!

So! She's gonna try and deal some damage - let's do the same. Try a Scald and then a [b]Dragon Breath[/b. If one of those successfully caused a burn or paralysis, finish with Surf; otherwise, go for another Scald.

If you can't hit her for some reason, start off by Confiding to her on the first action, setting up a Focus Energy on the second, and Confide another secret on the third. Try to hit her with an attack move first, though.

Scald / Confide ~ Dragon Breath / Focus Energy ~ Scald / Surf / Confide

Eifie and Sandstone-Shadow waited patiently in ASB Central for two more battlers for their cheep cheep battle royale. Soon enough, they got tired of waiting around; Eifie became restless and issued a challenge right there and then, which Sandstone-Shadow readily accepted. Their referee agreed to referee the match, and the trio made their way into the nearby ASB Central Stadium.

Somewhat perplexingly, a great crowd already sat in the Stadium, anxious for a battle to begin, waving colorful flags. Great cheers rose when the Trainers stepped onto the astroturf as if they had been expected all along. The middle of the field opened up at the referee’s signal, revealing a sizeable pool for a Water-type. The audience oohed and speculated as to what would take up residence in it. The referee lifted his flags, and the battlers appeared in flashes of light: a chipper little seahorse and a white dog... cat… fox… thing?


=Round One=
Eifie

Rayfa (F) @Soothe Bell
Health: 100% | Energy: 100%
Ability: Anticipation
Status: Normal. | Mood: “Nayna! My robe!”
Commands: Natural Gift / Work Up ~ Hyper Voice / Swift / Work Up ~ Hidden Powder / Swift / Work Up

Pertina(F) @Lucky Egg
Health: 100% | Energy: 100%
Ability: Swift Swim (activated)
Status: Normal. | Mood: Eager to get started!
Commands: Scald / Confide ~ Dragon Breath / Focus Energy ~ Scald / Surf / Confide

Rayfa sauntered onto the field, her shimmering white fur claiming the adoration of the crowd. The patriots in the audience chanted “Ur dihara Khura’in!” repeatedly; Rayfa basked in this lovely display, certain King Tassorosso would be proud. Pertina was confused, but unfazed; she happily did laps in the pool, herself winning the affection of other members of the audience with her graceful yet speedy movements. After their initial showings, the two locked eyes and got ready to get down to business.

Pertina sped up to the edge of the pool and eyed Rayfa. After staring her down for a few seconds, the Horsea shot a boiling stream of water at her opponent, soaking Rayfa’s fur, much to Her Benevolence’s displeasure. Pertina giggled at Rayfa’s misfortune; her regal demeanor seemingly melted away. A little ways across the field, though, Rayfa stared in disbelief at this insolence. How dare this pipsqueak disgrace her royal neck fluff?! The indignation overwhelmed her! She focused on the depths of her being, channeling her own regal essence. A white orb materialized before her and careened towards Pertina, slicing the air around it. Pertina squeaked as the sphere slammed into her side.

Pertina glared at Rayfa’s smug face. The little twerp… Who did she think she was? Floating defiantly, Pertina launched a new assault: this time, a savage burst of draconic energy flurried about Rayfa. After recovering from the attack, Rayfa started skipping around the pool. “O HOLY MOTHER!” she chanted offkey. “WE HOLD THIS DIVINATION SÉANCE IN YOUR NAME! LET THE EYES OF EVERYONE HERE BE CLEAR, AND OUR EARS BE UNSTOPPED!” Pertina, along with everyone else present, reeled as the screechy song drilled into her ear canals.

“O DANCE OF DEVOTION! GUIDE-” Rayfa’s song was suddenly interrupted by an even fiercer and more pressurized blast of hot water. It didn’t quite burn her, but it still stung incredibly. She shook off the water and summoned more orbs of energy around her. They flashed many colors –red, pink, purple, green, yellow- before settling on a deep navy blue and hurtling at Pertina. The Water-type seemed much less affected by this attack than the previous ones, and squared up, readying herself for another round.

Calculations

Action 1:
-Scald: 8+2 (stab)=10% damage inflicted, 5-1 (stab)=4% energy consumed, accuracy roll 87 (hit), crit roll 71 (no crit), burn roll 46 (no burn).
-Natural Gift: 9+2.25 (stab)=11% damage inflicted, 5-1 (stab)= 4% energy consumed, accuracy roll n/a, crit roll 80 (no crit).

Action 2:
-Dragon Breath: 6% damage inflicted, 4% energy consumed, accuracy roll 87 (hit), crit roll 57 (no crit), paralysis roll 96 (no paralysis).
-Hyper Voice: 9+2.25 (stab)=11% damage inflicted, 5-1 (stab)=4% energy consumed, accuracy roll 93 (hit), crit roll 20 (no crit).
-Totals: Pertina took 11% damage and consumed 4% energy, Rayfa took 6% damage and consumed 4% energy.

Action 3:
-Scald: 8+2 (stab)+4 (crit)=14% damage inflicted, 5-1 (stab)=4% energy consumed, accuracy roll 87 (hit), crit roll 4 (crit), burn roll 58 (no burn).

Rayfa: 100%-30%=70% health, 100%-11%=89% energy.
Pertina: 100%-26%=74% health, 100%-12%=88% energy


Ref Notes:
-Sorry this took so long! Happy New Year!

-All of SS’s accuracy rolls were 87! :O lucky rolls

Alright, Pertina! Looks like luck might be on our side (for now). Let's deal some more damage!

Start off with a Rain Dance and follow through with Surf and Water Pulse.

If she uses Sunny Day before any of your actions, switch to Dragon Pulse instead of Surf and Dragon Breath instead of Water Pulse.
If it looks like she's going to try and somehow avoid your attacks (or if you can't hit her for some reason), go with Smokescreen.

Rain Dance / Smokescreen ~ Surf / Dragon Pulse / Smokescreen ~ Water Pulse / Dragon Breath / Smokescreen

Ha! Foolish displays such as these do nothing but bore Her Benevolence — show Pertina your lack of appreciation for her dance of non-devotion with a great big Yawn!

Since Surf involves the Pokémon itself riding the wave into its target, Pertina will hopefully be out of the pool by now, so knock her even further away from it with a one-action Skull Bash! If she's somehow still in the pool and you can reach her, try to use Skull Bash to launch her back onto land. And if it's not possible to hit her with a contact move, stick with Hyper Voice. Sorry to be boring, but you haven't got any better options, really. :(

Finally, Pertina should be asleep by now, so prepare yourself for next round with Work Up. If she's somehow still awake then idk man, Body Slam her.

Yawn ~ Skull Bash (one action) / Hyper Voice ~ Work Up / Body Slam

Pertina looks to the sky and produces billowing white clouds from her snout. She twirls about gracefully around the pool, the clouds contorting with her. Soon enough, a dreary gray blankets the skies above the stadium, and a downpour roars down from the heavens. Rayfa scoffs. That’s it? A little water show? It will hardly faze Her Benevolence!, she thinks as her fur becomes progressively more drenched. She opens her mouth and yawns a very loud and royal lawn. The audience would have been amazed at how regal the yawn was, but they, too, are yawning. Meanwhile, in the pool, a sudden drowsiness came over Pertina.

It’s probably nothing, right? She dispels the notion by shaking her head. Instead, she concentrates on the pool. Soon, the surface of the pool bubbles and a massive wave erupts, Pertina happily whinnying at its top. The crowd screams in approval as the attack slams into Rayfa with full force. However, once the tsunami subsides, Pertina lays flopping on the stadium ground. The Eevee coughed and spat out some water. After refluffing herself, she runs around in a circle, building up momentum. She charges at Pertina, her head ramming the Horsea’s yellow midsection, knocking her target even farther away from the pool. Once Pertina hits the ground, she… falls asleep? Fits of flopping seize her from time to time, but she lays prone for now.

Pleased with her results, Rayfa prances around the arena, a faint red aura glowing around her. The riled-up crowd screams in conjunction with her cries, as chants glorifying Khura’in and Her Benevolence resound throughout the stadium. However, Pertina, sleeps peacefully through all of this.

Action 1:

-Skull Bash: 13+3.25 (stab)=16% damage inflicted, 11-1 (stab)=10% energy consumed, accuracy roll 77 (hit), crit roll 9 (no crit).
-Totals: Pertina took 16% damage and consumed 4% energy, Rayfa took 11% damage and consumed 10% energy.

Action 3:

-Totals: Rayfa consumed 2% energy.

Grand Totals:
Rayfa: 70%-11%=59% health, 89%-16%=73% energy.
Pertina: 74%-16%=58% health, 88%-8%=80% energy


Ref Notes:
-Sorry I took so long again. I promise I’ll be on the ball more next round!
-I decided to roll if Pertina would flop back into the pool or not by the end of the action. 50/50 chance. Rolled 91, so she didn’t. Since Pertina is aquatic and her instinct (even when asleep) is to return to the water, every action she will get one action closer to the pool.
-Eifie next.

Thanks, ILS! No problem about the wait; I think both SS and I have had a lot going on, anyway. Is the 95% chance of waking up next action actually supposed to be 5%? Surely Her Benevolence's commanding yawn demands compliance!

Excellent work as always, Your Benevolence! Let's go with Sunny Day to weaken her STAB, then Focus Energy. On the last action, hit her with Natural Gift; if she's still asleep, wait for her to move first.

If she wakes up on the first action, go with Hyper Voice on your second action instead, but stick with Focus Energy if you can't hit her. On the last action, if she has a sub use Hyper Voice, and if you can't hit her for some reason, use Work Up.

Sunny Day ~ Focus Energy / Hyper Voice ~ Natural Gift / Hyper Voice / Work Up

omg hey commands, I kinda forget how to do this

So, Pertina! You seem to be asleep. Let's Sleep Talk for as long as you continue to be asleep. Whenever you wake up, move back to the pool and try to dodge any incoming attacks from Rayfa, but prioritize moving back to the pool. Once you're there, Dragon Pulse! Yeah!

Sleep Talk / move to pool and try to dodge / Dragon Pulse x 3
