3v3 single
Style: Set
DQ: one week
Damage cap: 45%
Banned moves: OHKOs, anything that may damage the arena
Arena: Dusky Bridge

A long, narrow, rickety old suspension bridge spanning the Eagle River, roughly long enough to take two actions to cross from one side to the other. The battle takes place in the middle of the bridge, with the trainers each positioned on opposing sides. A handrail will prevent Pokémon from falling or being knocked off. At the beginning of the third round, lightning will strike the bridge, setting it on fire; Pokémon will have until the end of this round to escape the bridge to either end before it collapses, dumping any Pokémon still on it into the Eagle River. Anything that falls into the river cannot be reclaimed, so the Pokémon will be knocked out if this happens. The battle will then move to the cliffsides the bridge connected; if the Pokémon are on opposite sides, only projectile attacks will connect, and due to the distance they need to travel and the heavy snowfall obscuring the view across the canyon, these attacks' accuracy will be reduced by 25%. Alternatively, if they end up on the same side, obviously one will be very far away from their trainer and there is a 25% chance this Pokémon won't hear whatever commands it is given. (Flying Pokémon near their trainers may listen to their commands, fly to the other side to enact them, and return without penalty, but the trip across the canyon takes a full action each way.)
On the sixth round, Godot and Detective Gumshoe will arrive to repair the bridge; anything that touches the bridge (accidentally or otherwise) between then and the time it is finished will cause Godot to throw a mug of scalding coffee at whoever touched it or used the attack that hit it, dealing 5% typeless damage, inflicting a burn, and reducing Defense by 1 level due to the cuts dealt by shattering china. By the ninth round, the bridge will be finished, and the events will repeat themselves from there onwards (lightning strike/bridge collapse on round 12, Godot and Gumshoe arrive on round 15, bridge is fixed on round 18, etc.)

Other notes: So as to not put undue strain on the already-unstable bridge, only Pokémon under 5 feet in height and 200lbs in weight may be used.

Thanks, LotF!

I think for old time's sake I'll open with a Sneasel, even though this one's not Ace Attorney themed. Let's go, Sakuya!

Ack! A Dark-type!? That's my one weakness!

Hrrm. It feels cheap to do this, but I don't have much choice. Bring out the Ant Heater!

The Ant Heater will perform many Fire Punches, all round long. But if the Ant Heater cannot do so - for example due to Torment - he will instead Lick his enemy, slowly. Yeees... why he lick you...

If the Ant Heater sees anything snatchable, he will Snatch it...

Oh, and one last thing... Using a Smoke Ball does not cost an action, so the Ant Heater will begin the battle by using his Smoke Ball on the opponent... yes... now you see him, now you not...

Fire Punch + Smoke Ball / Lick + Smoke Ball / Snatch + Smoke Ball ~ Fire Punch / Lick / Snatch ~ Fire Punch / Lick / Snatch

Accuracy drops are pretty gross, so let's be a dirty Thief by snatching that Smoke Ball off him and popping it in his face before he can use it. If he uses it before you get to him, though, just put up a Reflect to make those Fire Punches sting a bit less.

If you used Reflect on the first action, wait until he attacks and retaliate with Payback. If you didn't, use Reflect now. In either case, use a delayed Payback on the third action.

Thief + Smoke Ball/Reflect ~ Reflect/Payback ~ Payback

Pre-Round

Imposing, majestic, hand-made with the finest oak and cherry, the windswept Dusky Bridge was swaying gently in the fresh morning breeze, innocent, unsuspecting of the terrible fate forthcoming. Lord of the Fireflies, in responsible referee fashion, was napping noisily on his Altaria. The dragon was describing large circles around the area, on the lookout for the arriving battlers. In the distance, a large round shape appeared, aimlessly floating about. Luckily, a strong wind pushed the Drifblim in the right direction, and Sandfroidish was able to loosen its grip on the cloud-shaped tuft atop the balloon Pokémon and slide down its body, landing softly on the east side of the bridge. Calling back Hindenburg, he asked the referee what the heck was the other battler waiting for, to which he answered with a snore. His welcome rest was interrupted abruptly by the rumble of the earth near the west end of the bridge. Music Dragon was not a man of conventions, and thus when his Steelix erupted from the ground and the trainer came out of its mouth, greeting his fellow Absers, both merely shrugged. Sangfroidish, in a flash of red light, sent out a smirking Sneasel, with a razor-sharp claw clutched in her already razor-sharp-clawed paws. Music Dragon responded with an extravagant “HA HA” and a smug Heatmor, a mysterious violet gem laced around his neck.

The sleepy-eyed referee waved his turquoise flag and the battle began.

Round I Begins

Sakuya’s red, velvety ear twitched, and in a surprising burst of speed, she zoomed forward, heading straight for the Ant Heater. She cleared the distance between them in a fraction of a second, dashing along the wooden bridge, expertly avoiding every cracks and gaps. A whim, and she was face-to-face with the dumbfounded Heatmor. In one swift motion, her clawed paw slashed across his soft belly, and through the string of the necklace holding his mysterious gem, but not without losing her grip on her own Razor Claw, which slipped and fell into the abyss below. The Smoke Ball, however, crashed onto the solid wood of the bridge and broke open, releasing its foggy contents, and the Ant Heater was bathed in dense smoke.

Sakuya, smirking, bounced away from the haze. She could discern the shape of the still confused Ant Heater now nervously sniffing the air in an attempt spot his prey. To Sakuya’s horror, his long nose finally stood still, pointing directly in her direction. The beast’s fist, suddenly alight, cleaved the smoke and hit her jaw in an explosion of crackling flames, sending her a few feet away. She grabbed the handrail just in time to avoid a direct fall to her death knockout.

Climbing back onto the bridge, Sakuya decided she definitely wouldn’t enjoy another blow of this magnitude, and carefully crafted a shimmering shield, suspended in mid-air, reflecting the faint daylight. She was nearly done when dark tendrils shot from the mist and snaked around the Reflect, pulling it back into the brute's hide.

She didn’t have the time to mourn the loss of her protective shield, as the Heatmor’s fist was blazing again. This time, she was ready. Even with his accurate sense of smell, the Ant Eater’s aim was a bit off, and when he lurched forward to attack, she dodged swiftly and retaliated with a vicious slash. Instead of digging in his face like she had hoped it would, the hit was sponged by the flickering barrier the foul animal had stolen before. Sakuya scowled. Soon enough, she swore to herself, she would get revenge for what was hers.

Thunderclouds rumbled in the distance.

Round I Ends

Sangfroidish

Sneasel
Sakuya – female
Inner Focus | Razor Claw
Stats: (+2|-1|-2|+1|115)
Health: 84%
Energy: 92%
Status: Eying the beast warily.
Used: Thief + Smoke Ball ~ Reflect ~ Payback


Music Dragon

Heatmor
Ant Heater – male
Flash Fire | Smoke Ball
Stats: (+1|-1|+1|-1|65)
Health: 80%
Energy: 90%
Status: “Oops I tripped” (-1 accuracy | Surrounded by Smoke Screen: two more rounds; Protected by Reflect: four more actions, 1% energy/action to maintain)
Used: Fire Punch ~ Snatch ~ Fire Punch


Calculations:
Thief – Critical hit! (8/100) – 13% damage, 2% energy.

Fire Punch – Hit (22/100, needed 90 or lower) – 16% damage, 3% energy. No effect (51/100).

Snatch – 3% energy.

Reflect – 1% energy.

Fire Punch – miss (94/100, needed 90 or lower) – 3% energy.

Payback – 7% damage, 5% energy.


Notes

- Sakuya had to drop her Razor Claw to use the Smoke Ball.
- Thief was a critical hit regardless.
- Still not sure how to handle Snatch. I set it at a 3% base. Sakuya had to pay 1% for the initial Reflect, but Ant Heater will use 1% per action to keep it up.
- The Ant Heater’s second Fire Punch missed due to the Smoke Screen.
- Whew, first reffing in ages! Please point out any mistake.

Next Round

- Sangfroidish commands first.

Damnit, I need to stop overthinking my commands to the point that I forget everything I was even trying to command around. >:V

No matter! Just get that shield out of there with a Brick Break. If for some reason he thinks it worthwhile to Protect, use Nasty Plot instead.

Once the shield's down, resume the delayed Paybacks. If you're tormented and just used either Payback or Brick Break, use whichever of those moves you didn't just use.

N-no! Not the Ball! He stole the Ball!

No matter... The Ant Heater can use Odor Sleuth to see through Smokescreens, he is not bothered by them...

Next, the Ant Heater will attempt to Recycle the Ball and use it! Glory to the Ball! But if Recycling it is impossible, instead he Lick you...

And finally, the Ant Heater will take advantage of the opponent's delayed attacks... Sakuya is waiting for the Ant Heater to strike first, so he should have no difficulty in using a Focus Punch. Hehehe...!

Now go!!

Odor Sleuth ~ Recycle + Smoke Ball / Lick ~ Focus Punch

Round II Begins

The Ant Heater was squinting and blinking, trying to make out Sakuya’s evasive shape through the thick fog. Her shadow appeared behind him, only to deliver a light punch, leaving a deep crack in his iridescent protection, before fading away into darkness. Trashing his head around, the beast tried to follow it, but was hit in the back by a second slash, and this time the cracks ran all around the Reflect. The Ant Heater turned around brutally to fight back, but it was already too late – Sakuya was now above him, and struck the light barrier, shattering it in a thousand shimmering pieces, before landing weightily on the beast’s head and delivering a skull-shaking punch. The Sneasel then retreated into the fog once more.

Enraged, the Ant Heater was for a moment seduced by the idea of following her, but her location was hard to determine. Last time he had tried to make an educated guess, things hadn’t gone so well. But since the beast did possess a quite interesting appendage for a nose, filled to the rim with sensitive olfactory mucosa, and an unbreakable will, surely some visual inconvenience wouldn’t stop him from crushing his enemy. The Ant Heater took a deep breath, and let the air fill his lungs, concentrating on every last odorous particle to pinpoint Sakuya’s exact location. Except, there was this something in the air that got stuck in his nostril, something itchy and tickly. He tried to rub it off quickly and focus on the complex fumes running along his nose, but to no avail. He helplessly broke into a monstrous sneeze. The sheer force of the gust blew the smoke away, and revealed a flummoxed Sakuya.

Now defenceless, she prepared for retaliation. But the Ant Heater had other plans in mind… hmm, yes, other plans… Using his Smoke Ball again was out of the question, since the wicked rat had laid its equally wicked hands on it. The beast began to walk towards Sakuya. She was waiting patiently, ready to strike back. She was expecting some kind of blazing punch, or a fiery breath, or some… fire in any form. But the Ant Heater had other plans in mind… hmm, yes, other plans… His tongue sluggishly snaked out of his mouth, wriggling in the air, and sloooowly licked Sakuya across the face, with such imperturbability and such tremendous awkwardness that it took her a moment to react.

The Ant Heater, rather enjoying himself, received a slap so well deserved it had twice its usual oomph.

Rubbing his painful wound, the Ant Heater concentrated, set to make his next move count. His fist began to glow a bright yellow as it gathered energy from all of its body. Sakuya was immobile, waiting for the beast to move first. The Ant Heater thus had all his time, and when he felt sufficiently calm, he opened his eyes. His opponent had not moved, and now his own claws were a blinding white. In a long, calculated motion, the beast landed a resounding uppercut, its fist exploding in light and hitting Sakuya squarely in the chest, sending her straight into the handrails. Thank Arceus for those handrails.

Gasping for air, the Sneasel got up with difficulty, and, fuelled by her rage, slashed back at the Ant Heater with all her might, but even her rancorous blows paled in comparison to the infernal wallop she had just stomached.

The thunderclouds boomed up above.

No running away now, little one...!

First, the Ant Heater will Taunt Sakuya, so that she will stay and fight instead of running. Then, the Ant Heater will trap her with a Fire Spin, and finally he will Wrap her with his tongue, for more lick she!

If the Ant Heater is unable to use his moves - whether because of distance or something else - he will use Pursuit instead... and if even that should fail, due to Torment or the like, he will simply follow Sakuya wherever she may be heading. Must stay close at all costs, especially if she leaves the bridge!

Taunt / Pursuit / Follow Sakuya ~ Fire Spin / Pursuit / Follow Sakuya ~ Wrap / Pursuit / Follow Sakuya

Okay, the second-to-last thing we want is to stay on this bridge even a second longer. Shit's gonna blow, yo. The last thing we want is to be molested by that creature's tongue again. So let's bypass both by rushing off the bridge with an Agility before he can do anything about it. Head over to my end, so when he follows us he'll be stuck too far away to hear his commands properly.

Try to keep your distance from the Ant Heater so he can't get you with any of those trapping moves; if you need to use another Agility to do so, then go for it. Finally, wait for him to attempt Pursuit on the final action and then use all that speed you've built up to close the distance to him, and attempt to throw him back on the bridge with Strength just before it goes up >:D

If he manages to catch up and trap you, use Curse; we're not going to need those speed boosts probably, so we may as well turn them into something useful. If you manage to avoid him until the end but you think he might be too heavy to throw onto the bridge, just use Feint Attack.

Agility (escape bridge, my side) ~ avoid Ant Heater/Agility (avoid Ant Heater)/Curse ~ Strength/Curse/Feint Attack

Round III Begins

The Ant Heater rubbed his sore flank; his legendary punch from last round may had packed some serious oomph, but Sakuya’s Payback was no fluff. Boiling-hot blood was dripping from his wound, between his claws, and had awaken a searing rage that scorched his entrails, a rage that fuelled his imagination with words of awe and woe, words so cruel they would without a doubt inspire an ill-fated desire for doom inside his opponent.

But before those cursed words could escape his mouth, the thunderclouds, nearer than ever, suddenly exploded in light and fire, and struck down the Dusky Bridge with an eardrum-splitting thunderbolt. Before the Ant Heater could even open his blinded eyes, the bridge was alight with hellish flames. While the fire-type was fairly comfortable around those, he was quick to notice that his opponent had broken into a run. Actually, as soon as the thunder had struck, Sakuya had realized it was a bad idea to stay where she was. Fizzling embers were flying in every direction, the ropes holding the bridge together were on fire, and the whole thing was just inconveniently hot. Working up her muscles, she had quickly fled towards her trainer.

But the Ant Eater wouldn’t have any of that. Soon coming to the realization that his cleverly concocted insults wouldn’t reach Sakuya, he instead shot his tongue in a straight line, aiming for the fleeing Sneasel. The abnormally long appendage flew like a bullet and wrapped itself around Sakuya’s ankle, making her trip and crash face-first into the ground with the violence of a thousand broken dreams. Using the little time he had, the Ant Heater was able to catch up with Sakuya, still startled by her unexpected landing. He didn’t want to leave the comfort of the flames, but the bridge was about to break, and he expected his trainer wouldn’t approve him going for a swim in the chasm below.

It only took a second of inattention from the fiery beast for Sakuya to escape his slobbery grasp, freeing her ankle and breaking into a run once more, hoping to reach the cliff. She was feeling the thundering footsteps of the heavy Heatmor running after hear, but his thickset body didn’t allow much manoeuvrability. She figured out it was why he had preferred to shoot his horrible, sticky tongue at her once more, and why her head had just banged the wooden planks of the bridge.

When she got up, though, she realized she was just a few feet away from her trainer, who was grinning and waving at her encouragingly. With a kick, she loosened the Ant Heater’s grip again, and finally reached the cliff. The clapping of the breaking ropes echoed in the distance as the beast caught up with her, panting loudly. Sakuya looked down at her own biceps in disappointment. The hulking beast before her would sprout wings and fly before she could ever hope to lift him and throw him down in the abyss. Instead, she opted on playing on her strengths: malicious, unpredictable and generation-VI-grammar-corrected attacks. She faded away into darkness. The Ant Heater, catching his breath, raised his head only to meet Sangfroidish's amused gaze. A split-second later, he felt his back burn in pain as Sakuya reappeared and lashed out with dark-energy imbued claws. For a moment, she sneered at the wailing beast, but she forever regretted this moment of distraction, as the Ant Heater slipped out his tongue for a final round, and wrapped it around her waist. The Sneasel trashed about for a short while, but to no avail; the hold was tight and there was no escaping from the fiendish tongue from hell.

The Dusky Bridge, eaten by the flames, finally broke apart and each half came crashing along the rock faces. The thunderclouds gave way to a raging snowstorm, and even with his trusty megaphone, Music Dragon’s desperate calls for help and/or pizza were half-drown in the blizzard.

Round III Ends

Sangfroidish

Sneasel
Sakuya – female
Inner Focus | Razor Claw
Stats: (+2|-1|-2|+1|115)
Health: 30%
Energy: 72%
Status: "EWW" Utterly disgusted. Also in pain. (+2 speed | Wrapped: 1% damage/action: four more actions)
Used: Agility (escape bridge, my side) ~ Agility (avoid Ant Heater) ~ Feint Attack


Music Dragon

Heatmor
Ant Heater – male
Flash Fire | Smoke Ball
Stats: (+1|-1|+1|-1|65)
Health: 30%
Energy: 56%
Status: “Bye bye bridge! Also ouch”
Commands: Pursuit ~ Pursuit ~ Wrap

Calculations
Agility – 2% energy

Pursuit – 7% damage, 4% energy

Agility – 2% energy

Pursuit – 7% damage, 4% energy

Feint Attack – 10% damage, 2% energy

Wrap – 3% damage, 1% energy


Notes:
- Sorry it's taken so much time! I was busy with school and partyyy
- On the first action, The Ant Heater defaulted to Pursuit because Sakuya would’ve been too far away for an effective Taunt. Pursuit partially prevented the escape, and Agility gave a +1 to speed instead of +2.
- The same happened on the second action, as Sakuya couldn’t cross all the bridge with an interrupted Agility. Both battlers were nearing Sangfroidish's side by the end of the second action.
- The Ant Heater had to expand 3% energy on actions one and two to follow Sakuya, though it didn’t cost the action to do so due to the nature of his attacks.
- Heatmor is twice the weight of Sneasel, so Sakuya wouldn’t have been able to throw The Ant Heater off the cliff, so she used Feint Attack instead.
- I rolled Wrap so it would either wrap Sakuya’s torso, her torso and one arm, or her torso and both arms. I rolled a 1, so only her torso is trapped. It will still be hard to execute any movement-relying command.
- This round’s commands were a bit harder to interpret, so let me know if something seems off.

Next round:
- Music Dragon’s commands have a 25% chance of being randomized.
- Sangfroidish orders first.

Yes, why? By all means, join us; together we could win this battle easily! With your wits and my licky, we'd be unstoppable! Or would you rather side with Sangfroidish, that soggy cake? Ha! I can take both of you! En garde!

how could you meursault, together we could have done great things D:

Anyway, this is just super scary. Why does that stupid thing have so many super-tough fighting moves >:/ All we can really do is spam Feint Attack and hope some commands get lost on their way across. If he protects, make that Feint instead. If you can't hit him with anything at all for some reason (unless it's because he has a substitute), use Curse.

Feint Attack/Feint/Curse x3

3v3 single
Style: Set
DQ: one week
Damage cap: 45%
Banned moves: OHKOs, anything that may damage the arena
Arena: Dusky Bridge

A long, narrow, rickety old suspension bridge spanning the Eagle River, roughly long enough to take two actions to cross from one side to the other. The battle takes place in the middle of the bridge, with the trainers each positioned on opposing sides. A handrail will prevent Pokémon from falling or being knocked off. At the beginning of the third round, lightning will strike the bridge, setting it on fire; Pokémon will have until the end of this round to escape the bridge to either end before it collapses, dumping any Pokémon still on it into the Eagle River. Anything that falls into the river cannot be reclaimed, so the Pokémon will be knocked out if this happens. The battle will then move to the cliffsides the bridge connected; if the Pokémon are on opposite sides, only projectile attacks will connect, and due to the distance they need to travel and the heavy snowfall obscuring the view across the canyon, these attacks' accuracy will be reduced by 25%. Alternatively, if they end up on the same side, obviously one will be very far away from their trainer and there is a 25% chance this Pokémon won't hear whatever commands it is given. (Flying Pokémon near their trainers may listen to their commands, fly to the other side to enact them, and return without penalty, but the trip across the canyon takes a full action each way.)
On the sixth round, Godot and Detective Gumshoe will arrive to repair the bridge; anything that touches the bridge (accidentally or otherwise) between then and the time it is finished will cause Godot to throw a mug of scalding coffee at whoever touched it or used the attack that hit it, dealing 5% typeless damage, inflicting a burn, and reducing Defense by 1 level due to the cuts dealt by shattering china. By the ninth round, the bridge will be finished, and the events will repeat themselves from there onwards (lightning strike/bridge collapse on round 12, Godot and Gumshoe arrive on round 15, bridge is fixed on round 18, etc.)

Other notes: So as to not put undue strain on the already-unstable bridge, only Pokémon under 5 feet in height and 200lbs in weight may be used.

Round IV Begins

Gasping for air, Sakuya squirmed and squirmed to escape The Ant Heater’s tongue – alas, such an endeavour was utterly pointless; the grasp only grew tighter with each effort. Fortunately, Sangfroidish’s presence near the beast was comforting, and the Sneasel was able to relax her muscles and loosen the grip, and an instant was sufficient for her to fade into nothingness. Suddenly, The Ant Heater’s tongue was seizing thin air, and the fire-type, dumbfounded, looked around for a moment, puzzled. Squinting, he was hoping to make out Sakuya's shape in the storm. He hoped for a second she had miraculously thrown herself off the cliff. It was, however, quite challenging for the beast to be attentive to his surrounding, with his trainer’s incomprehensible orders buzzing in his right earhole.

The Ant Heater’s confusion was cut short by a swift slash to the face, as Sakuya reappeared before him. Seizing his opportunity, he reacted with the only thing he had deciphered from Music Dragon gibberish – PUNCH. Trusting his guts, he shot his fist forward, delivering a quick blow to Sakuya’s side before she disappeared again. His success bolstered his confidence, and standing firm he waited. When the sneaky animal popped up above him with another vicious hit, he riposted, ignoring the pain. Oblivious to his own fleeting stamina, focusing only on his opponent’s imperceptible movements, he waited.

Sangfroidish was still, trying to read The Ant Heater’s movements. On the opposite side of the abyss, Music Dragon was silent, closely following the battle through wind-powered binoculars. Caught up in the raging snowstorm, they were zooming in at maximum capacity.

Sakuya emerged from the blizzard and aimed straight for The Ant Heater’s neck. She did not notice the purplish aura that snaked around the beast’s clenched fist, nor did she comprehend how such a hulk could realistically spin around so fast. Fortunately, her incredulousness lasted for about half a split-second as The Ant Heater hit her squarely in the chest before she could reach him, knocking her out instantly.

Sangfroidish recalled his fallen battler with a sigh as Music Dragon’s howls of joy were drowned in the storm. He would have to wait to brag, as his solar-powered megaphone had died out.

Notes:
- My sincerest apologies for the monstrous delay. I’ll try to catch up by reffing as quickly as humanely conceivable in the next few days, but I leave for a trip on Monday. Until then, if you get your orders in quickly, I should be able to write two-three reffings, I hope.
- Uuuuurgh, I really didn’t know what to do with Music Dragon’s commands, since it’s not exactly, well, what was supposed to happen, but I guess we should be encouraging creative ways to circumvent obstacles, so I went with my guts and picked a random punch move for every action. Music Dragon happens to be a fairly lucky fellow.

Next Round:
- Sangfroidish sends out.
- Music Dragon orders NORMALLY PLZ… or otherwise because fuck dem rules

Ah well, not like the knockout would've been any good to Sakuya anyway. Chester, you're up!
