One of the coldest places on the planet, and right in the middle of winter, too. Even a "warm" day here is barely more than -10°. The battleground is relatively flat, with a couple of hills on either side. The ground is also covered with thick snow - this impairs movement for all terrestrial pokémon equivalent to a stat drop of -1 Speed, though if it's gotten rid of somehow this speed impairment will vanish. It's constantly snowing here, though not hailing - this snow will act like hail except without the residual damage.

The bitter cold makes it difficult to concentrate, and you have to keep your body temperature up. If a pokémon does not physically move while using their action, they will take 3% Ice-type damage from the cold and lose 2% Energy, with the exception of Fire-types, Ice-types, and pokémon with the abilities Thick Fat, Ice Body or Snow Cloak. This damage can also be avoided by using or being hit by an attack that generates heat - most Fire-type attacks, or Scald, even if the user doesn't move around while using or getting hit by the attack. Finally, Sheer Cold is useable in this battle, but its effect changes - instead of being a one-hit KO move, it now has a 100% chance of Freezing the opponent completely, and it maintains an unconditional 30% accuracy.

There is no water source unless one is to melt the snow first. Any water on the ground will freeze into ice three actions after it appears there, and any snow scraped off of the ground somehow will reappear in three actions.

Firestrike, let's start strong!

Let's start by Attracting Tilda over there. You're both immune to the arena's weather effects, so there's nothing to lose. Then, rather than attacking to lower her trust, try Bulking up twice, and show her your powerful muscles. Girls love muscled guys, right? If Tilda isn't attracted yet and does something that would make it impossible for you to attract her, just use Bulk Up instead.

On the chance that ultraviolet decides to switch Tilda out due to the unfavorable match-up, use Bulk Up while she's switching, then Rock Tomb, and finally Flame Charge.

Attract/Bulk Up ~ Attract/Bulk Up/Rock Tomb ~ Attract/Bulk Up/Flame Charge

Wow Tilda, this is so exciting! You're gonna have a boyfriend! But remember what mama uv told you: you're not a passive delicate flower! You're an independent woman with agency and spunk, so use Attract right back at him! If he doesn't take to it on the first action, just keep trying - maybe position yourself better in the snow so you have better lighting, or something. You can do it!

Then watch the gunshow, I suppose, but I think it's important to communicate well in a relationship, and obviously you don't want him preening and showing off all the time, do you? So I want you do Disable Firestrike's Bulk Up. Muscles are nice - I'm not denying that - but if you stop him from flexing you'll be able to have an interesting conversation and get to know him. I'm sure he'd rather talk to you anyway; now that you're together, there's not really any need for him to keep trying to impress you like that.

While you're chatting, show him how creative you are by creating a 20% substitute; you won't need it with Firestrike, obviously, but you might need it later on. You can make it out of snow! You're kind of in your domain, too, so this is a great first date.

Attract ~ Attract / Disable ~ Attract / Substitute (20%)

(Tilda Swinton) Snorunt [F] <Ice Body> @Dawn Stone
Commands: Attract ~ Attract / Disable ~ Attract / Substitute (20%)
Status: In her element. Speed -1

The wheel, sliced bread, Snapchat. Just a few great ideas from the history of humankind. Fighting a Pokemon battle in the Siberian winter? Not even close to making that list. The two battlers, used to much warmer climes, kept murmuring to themselves as they reached the spot for their battle, snow ever cascading to the earth. Even their Canadian referee, bundled up in parka and ski pants, was cross with the arena selection. The only ones seemingly happy about the battlefield were the two Pokemon released. On one side, a bright orange rooster, his internal flame keeping him nice and comfy in the frigid conditions. Across from him a huddled form, who, despite shivering, felt quite at home in her natural temperatures. Somehow the referee managed to blow his frozen whistle, and the battle began.

Both Pokemon started the battle in nearly the same way. Rather than prepare some barrage of blows or fire an immense beam of elemental energy, each Pokemon seemed content to let their immaculate bodies do the work for them. In the mood-enforcing snow, the opponents put on a show. Firestrike gave Tilda smoldering look, his plumage slowly waving in the arctic wind. He flexed his magnificent thighs and showed off his shined claws. Across from him, Tilda turned her normally neurotic grimace into a wide, only slightly uncanny, smile. She began to sway a little bit on her beady feet, and with her arms she started to flare her jacket. From both participants it was rudimentary, but quickly the desired effect seemed to be taking hold. Each Pokemon had started to lose focus on their own actions, paying closer attention to the more arousing movements performed by their opponent. As the burlesque-esque performances wound to a close, each combatant was firmly infatuated by their counterpart. Sadly, the relationship could only go downhill from here.

Firestrike couldn’t think of any better way to continue the romance than by exaggerating his most attractive quality. Anything for his petit chouchou. So with a few deep breaths he began to flex again, not just his gigantic legs but also his arms and chest. As he worked his metabolism kicked it up a notch, and his muscles began to visibly expand. His biceps began to ripple, pectorals took shape, and veins started to appear, stretching jaggedly down his legs. Tilda was nearly overcome with lust. In the back of her mind she remembered what her trainer had asked her to do, but she realized it would involve trespassing into her new lover’s totally huge brain. She debated over it a couple of times, but taking another look at her macho man she couldn’t pull herself to stop his working out.

Firestrike was incredibly flattered by Tilda, who had consented to simply drooling over his model body as he had strutted his stuff. Hardly needing the instruction from his trainer, Firestrike continued the fitness exercise, more blood vessels popping up, his skin starting to stretch over his newly established physique. Tilda absolutely loved it, but in a panic she realized she had to do something to make herself not seem a mere damsel in distress. She had useful (and lovable) qualities as well! Quickly she began to gather up a heap of snow, and, making sure Firestrike was watching, began to use her artistic qualities to make a self-sculpture. She masterfully crafted her own form, maybe taking a bit away here and there to make sure Firestrike wouldn’t become more attracted to her art than her. Finally, Tilda poured energy into this model, and it quickly sprang to life, taking up position directly in front of Tilda. The Snorunt took one last flirtatious look from behind her substitute to see Firestrike looking on in awe.

End of Round 1

ehh I mean the arena does say that it "will act like hail except without the residual damage" so I don't really see much reason for that but okay I guess!

Okay, perfect. He's besotted by you! I really think the glittering green of a Safeguard will bring out your eyes, so let's go with that so you look radiant. When that's done, I'd like you to use Captivate so he doesn't stop paying attention to you. Lastly, let's blow him a kiss with Frost Breath.

If he taunts you - I mean, I guess this is a battle after all - use Icy Wind. It won't hurt him too hard and you'll look super majestic with the wind blowing around you.

Safeguard/Icy Wind ~ Captivate/Icy Wind ~ Frost Breath

Oh, that poor little thing. You two are so cute together, Firestrike, but doesn't Tilda Swinton look cold? See she's shivering so much. Why not use some Heat Waves to make her warm and comfortable?

Heat Wave x3

Tilda Swinton’s Substitute
Health: 20%

Firestrike stared ahead again at his little Picasso, playing hard to get behind her much uglier self-sculpture. Some words sounded in his mind, little fragments about cold. Cold? Was Tilda cold? Sure, she shivered, but it was a core part of her persona, Firestrike could only think of her as hot. Again, he strained his mind to think of what his trainer would’ve wanted him to do. Heat Wave..? Firestrike was incredibly in love, but he could still think. A Heat Wave would hurt. Looking again at his fragile love, he knew he just couldn’t do that to her. Instead he stood and tried to play peekaboo with Tilda behind her substitute. In Tilda’s own mind she had remnants of commands given what had to be hours ago. No, they could wait, whatever they were. She was perfectly content to play along with Firestrike, giggling as she bounded around her Substitute, making sure he could never quite get a look at her.

As Firestrike continued the merry game, he had a sudden flash of recollection. His trainer speaking to him, etched clearly in his conscience now. Heat Wave. His master had been very clear with that, no conditionals to confuse him. He loved Tilda, but he wanted to be obedient as well. What a travesty it would be if his trainer became so sick of the act that he returned him to his Pokeball! Not wanting to think of having even a second away from Tilda, Firestrike grudgingly released a barrage of flames in Tilda’s direction. He secretly hoped the flames, licking up bits of the snow as they travelled, wouldn’t hurt her. He was relieved when Tilda ducked behind her Substitute, and the snowy recreation took the blunt of the blow. The wave left the poor doll looking deformed. It no longer resembled a Snorunt, but now merely a dejected pyramid.

Tilda was a bit offended. She thought her and Firestrike were never going to argue, never going to disagree on anything, much less begin to attack each other. Looking over her poor substitute she saw Firestrike, and in his face she saw pain. It was not pain that she had inflicted upon him, but pain at his actions. She felt a bit better then, she could tell he was sorry. Feeling that she might need to recapture his attention again, she tiptoed out from behind her triangular blockade and began her little show once again. She calmed down her shivering and instead began to sway, the finer points of her body on full display. She gave another little smile, and she could see Firestrike melting from the performance, his beak gaping as he watched. He was hooked again, and Tilda was pleased that she had her chicken back.

Firestrike could barely think, he was so drawn to her luscious form. And yet, again the words of his trainer barged into the forefront of his mind. Clearly, Superbird had expected something to come from continuing to batter Tilda with fire. With a name like that, he had to be a good wingman, didn’t he? Firestrike let loose another flaming salvo, this one again spreading over the battlefield, but mainly in the direction of Tilda. Again she was saved from the blast, but to Tilda’s anger and Firestrike’s shock, the protective polygon was gone, the second Heat Wave causing the substitute to melt away. Firestrike was distraught with his handiwork. Tilda was starting to have real doubts. She had gone to such lengths to show off her creativity, and that was what she got in return? It was an outrage. She still loved Firestrike, but thinking of her trainer’s orders she had no issue with serving up an attack of her own to try to knock some sense into the Combusken. Opening her gigantic teeth she breathed out a cone of icy energy, shining blue amongst the white snow. This frigid blast hit Firestrike, who was already reeling enough from his meddling that he felt the attack was almost deserved. He looked up at Tilda with sorrow in his eyes, and she only looked back at him with a visage that encapsulated the arena: cold.

End of Round 2

Superbird OOO

Arena Notes:
-The snow between Tilda and Firestrike has been melted slightly. It will return to normal after the next action

Ref Notes:
-Concerning Ice Body, hailstones are significantly larger than snowflakes, and I feel Tilda would be able to make better use of larger amounts of ice to heal herself. This is just my logic however, if both of you think that it’s wrong I’d be more than willing to change it
-Both Pokemon infatuate-failed on the first action
-Superbird commands next

I messed up last turn, I'm sorry. I know she means a lot to you!

First, try to get her back with a Captivate, and then see if you can impress her again with a Feather dance. If fire isn't the way to warm that poor thing up, maybe she'll appreciate a nice feathery coat like you have, you know? (I mean, if you didn't have that internal flame...hey, I like feather coats, at least). Then, finally, use Confide, and tell her how much you love her and how much you would be hurt if your teammates were attacked.

If, at any point, she makes a Substitute, try to melt it with Flamethrower. You want her, right? You've already seen her art, and it's nice and all, but it's just not her. And try to be flourishy with it - make it look dazzling. Make her want you.

Captivate/Flamethrower ~ Feather dance/Flamethrower ~ Confide/Flamethrower

Brrrrr this really isn't going anywhere so I'm gonna switch out Tilda for Seven.

I'm pretty sure (?) Superbird commands again, but if not, REVEL IN THE GLORY THAT IS FLASHFIRE, then use Bounce.

One of the coldest places on the planet, and right in the middle of winter, too. Even a "warm" day here is barely more than -10°. The battleground is relatively flat, with a couple of hills on either side. The ground is also covered with thick snow - this impairs movement for all terrestrial pokémon equivalent to a stat drop of -1 Speed, though if it's gotten rid of somehow this speed impairment will vanish.

The bitter cold makes it difficult to concentrate, and you have to keep your body temperature up. If a pokémon does not physically move while using their action, they will take 3% Ice-type damage from the cold and lose 2% Energy, with the exception of Fire-types, Ice-types, and pokémon with the abilities Thick Fat, Ice Body or Snow Cloak. This damage can also be avoided by using or being hit by an attack that generates heat - most Fire-type attacks, or Scald, even if the user doesn't move around while using or getting hit by the attack. Finally, Sheer Cold is useable in this battle, but its effect changes - instead of being a one-hit KO move, it now has a 100% chance of Freezing the opponent completely, and it maintains an unconditional 30% accuracy.

There is no water source unless one is to melt the snow first. Any water on the ground will freeze into ice three actions after it appears there, and any snow scraped off of the ground somehow will reappear in three actions.

Before Firestrike had a chance to woo his lovely Snorunt again, he looked with terror on his face towards Tilda’s trainer, who had grabbed his darling’s Poke ball. Knowing just what was about to happen, he tried to jump forward and give her one last embrace, but in a flash his dearest disappeared, phasing into a red light sucked back into the Poke ball. In her place came a majestic creature, a proud stallion that towered over Firetstrike. Seven the Rapidash looked at his scrawny opponent with contempt, his regal flames billowing as he stood motionless.

Let's go with Drill Run. If Firestrike uses Dig, use Reflect and then make a 20% Substitute while he's underground; when he emerges, go back to Drill Run.

Drill Run/Reflect ~ Drill Run/Reflect/Substitute ~ Drill Run/Reflect/Substitute

First, use Flame Charge. If you can, try to use it to dodge your opponent's Drill Run, but more importantly, make sure you melt the area around you so that the snow doesn't hinder your movement next action. And speaking of next action - if you're faster than Seven after both your speed boost and the melted snow, use Bounce, and try to dodge both the second and third Drill Runs with it. Otherwise, use Mirror Move twice and use those Drill Runs back at him - they'll do more to him than they'll do to you.

Flame Charge ~ Bounce/(Mirror Movex2)

One of the coldest places on the planet, and right in the middle of winter, too. Even a "warm" day here is barely more than -10°. The battleground is relatively flat, with a couple of hills on either side. The ground is also covered with thick snow - this impairs movement for all terrestrial pokémon equivalent to a stat drop of -1 Speed, though if it's gotten rid of somehow this speed impairment will vanish. It's constantly snowing here, though not hailing - this snow will act like hail except without the residual damage.

The bitter cold makes it difficult to concentrate, and you have to keep your body temperature up.

Seven began his part of the battle by dashing forward through the snow, the white powder offering little resistance as the flames around his ankles licked at the ground. Firestrike saw the stampede coming, and quickly tried to dash away himself. From his own body came flames, not quite as majestic as Seven’s, that started melting the snow as well. He began to run away from the oncoming Rapidash, rather than try and attack him. For Seven, this was hardly an obstacle. Transitioning from a canter to a gallop, the Rapidash easily made up ground on the Combusken. Leaping into the air, Seven began to spin, emulating a world class (and impossible from a human standpoint) gymnastic routine. With Firestrike unable to evade the diving horse, Seven came hurtling down at his opponent, his spinning horn landing a direct hit upon Firestrike’s back. Both Pokemon careened into the quickly melting snow, Firestrike wincing from the pain in his back, Seven quite enjoying the acrobatics. Quickly, he stood up and trotted away, while Firestrike delicately lifted himself up.

The torment was not over then. While Firestrike tried to amble back towards where he had melted the snow, Seven began his charge once more. Turning swiftly back to face the woozy rooster, he thundered across the snow, leaving Firestrike to gawk as he realized the pain he was about to endure for a second time. As Seven leaped into the air, Firestrike forced himself to keep his eyes open, analyzing how the Rapidash was able to achieve such a tight spin in the short amount of time. He watched up until Seven’s twirling horn again pounded into him, this time right into his shoulder, causing his left side to be thrown backwards. Seven slid past him, the lack of a hit on Firestrike’s torso meaning the Combusken was not driven back into the earth. Before Seven could get up however, Firestrike was ready to fight back.

Having analyzed the move just used, Firestrike felt that he could adequately mimic it. Charging towards where Seven lay, he also jumped into the air, utilizing the patch of earth he had cleared of snow during the action prior. This time Seven was left to watch helplessly as Firestrike began to revolve at a blistering speed in the air, shedding his flightless-bird status. With his beak pointed squarely at the sprawled Rapidash, Firestrike crashed into Seven, pushing them both further through the snowdrifts. Firestrike relished in the angry whinny Seven let loose, and he jumped back up, pleased with himself.

The two Pokemon finished the round restrained by their trainer’s lack of creativity, but devotion to damage. With Seven performing first, both Pokemon utilized the same spinning body torpedo, crashing into their opponent. Firestrike’s legs, still covered in a surplus of muscle thanks to his courting display earlier, were the impetus for his attacks, while Seven’s horn proved to be a serious pain-inducer. The round ended with both Pokemon panting, the arena they fought on almost cleared of snow.

Arena Notes:
-The main battling area has been almost swept clean of snow, through the fire being used and the plowing from the Drill Runs. It will return to normal in 3 actions

Ref Notes:
-The speed deduction will be gone for next round while the snow re-accumulates
-Snow won’t be able to stick wherever Seven is standing during a given action
-Rapidash is nearly twice as fast as Combusken, so even using Flame Charge I don’t think Firestrike would’ve been able to dodge the Drill Run
-Nevertheless, hitting a moving target is hard, so I reduced the first Drill Run’s accuracy
-Superbird commands next

Let's try something interesting, Firestrike. Bounce to start with. We've established by now that you're still not as fast as Seven, but hopefully that won't be an issue. Also, height isn't the focus with this attack - instead, try to get on Seven's back, so we can cause a ruckus there. If that takes two actions, that's fine, but if you can do only a short hop and accomplish it in one without inflating the energy cost too much, that would be better. Trust your judgment as to times you will and won't be able to do it - if you see a protect on action one, go for a two-action Bounce. As long as you're there, use one Dynamic Punch with high accuracy, and then Crush Claw to hang on.

If you can't stay on his back at all, whether that be from being flung off on action 1 or not being able to get a firm hold, use Rock Tomb.

Bounce ~ Land/Dynamic Punch/Rock Tomb ~ Dynamic Punch/Crush Claw/Rock Tomb

aw look, he wants a ride! that's cute. make a 20% substitute and let him land on and attack that instead. While he's on there, trot up next to him and use Toxic, then use Reflect. If he does manage to get on your back somehow, use Overheat and then Body Slam.

Substitute ~ Toxic/Overheat ~ Reflect/Body Slam

Seven, having heard the commands from his trainer, spun around to face the battlefield and was instantly presented with quite an issue. Like his lovesick teammate from rounds past, he was supposed to construct a lookalike to halt Firestrike in his tracks. The problem was what Seven could use. There was very little snow left on the ground to shovel together, and even if there was, Seven would not have been able to easily make anything with his flaming limbs. Instead, he had to turn to the frozen ground. Using the aforementioned burning hooves he started to melt through the earth, kicking the resulting mud into a pile for him to shape. When he was finally graced with enough dirt, he quickly sculpted something quadrupedal. Seven was no artist like Tilda, so his finished product looked more like a Bouffalant than a Rapidash, but it got the job done.

As Seven finished pouring a healthy dose of lifeforce into his new plaything, the horse jumped back in surprise as immediately the doll rocketed skyward. Like an anti-aircraft missile, the substitute intercepted Firestrike, who squawked and tumbled to the ground, not letting go of the faux Seven. Firestrike’s plan to leap onto Seven’s back had barely been foiled, the Rapidash just able to finish the Substitute before the Combusken homed in. Grumbling about his failures, Firestrike held on to Seven’s Bouffalant with all of his limbs, ementating some sense of stubbornness that Seven merely scoffed at

Happy to hide behind his new barrier, Seven prepared his next move with arrogance. Holding his head high, he trotted over in the direction of Firestrike and the strangled sub. Refusing to let go, Firestrike was prepared to take whatever Seven had for him with pride. As it turned out, he didn’t need to. Seven was so overconfident in his abilities that when he vomited his purple toxic mass in the direction of Firestrike, he did not even open his eyes to check the direction. Firestrike watched in bewilderment as Seven spat his nasty looking glob to the right of Firestrike, missing him entirely. Seven opened his eyes and engaged in an awkward staring contest with Firestrike, who continued to be quite confused. His face turning red, Seven whisked around and trotted backwards, leaving the inferior Firestrike to continue manhandling the sculpture.

For the second time in the round, Seven was startled when the attack of Firestrike was barely held back in time. This time, Firestrike had jumped down from his muddy perch and slammed his inflated legs into the ground, causing a mash of stones, rock, and ice to pop into the air, hovering ominously just behind the embarrassed Seven. With un-Bouffalant like speed, the substitute whizzed back to Firestrike’s backside, blocking the Rapidash from all of the earth. The mound tumbled to the ground, burying the substitute. Seven turned around to see his substitute disintegrate, the jumble of soil proving to be too much for the poor defender. Seven paused to mourn his short-lived companion.

The dead cannot be wept over forever, however, and Seven knew it. Fully aware of the damage caused by that rocky tumble, he backed off and began to generate a shimmering, golden dome. The enclosure put him in what appeared to be his own personal bubble, though the snow falling from the sky was unimpeded. It fell through the barrier to the ground, where it was promptly melted by the heat coming off of Seven. Firestrike, happy that he didn’t have to run through that physical barrier, smashed the ground again with his hind talons. More rocks sprang up out of the ground, fighting their way through the snow. They hovered above Seven’s dome for a moment before falling. They all made it through the barrier, just like the snow, but from Firestrike’s point of view they seemed to fall in slow motion. To Seven, the rocks definitely still hurt when they fell against his coat, but they felt almost as if they had been mildly thrust against his back, rather than dropped. He shook himself once inside his shield, the last remnants of dust falling to the ground.

-As the snow is present once more, Firestrike’s speed was reduced again
-As a Rapidash can’t manipulate snow, Seven had to use extra energy to melt earth for his Substitute
-Bounce can be used in one action, it just costs more energy
-I increased Toxic’s accuracy based on Firestrike’s position, and yet it still missed. That was fun to write about
-Firestrike could clearly tell he wasn’t on Seven’s back, so he used Rock Tomb
-The first Rock Tomb broke Seven’s substitute
-According to the DB, Reflect decreases the momentum of physical attacks. I wasn’t sure how that would look with falling rocks, but I just went with it
-As a result, Rock Tomb did not lower speed when it hit Seven

whoops! okay, quick commands.
Use drill run. if you can't see or hit firestrike, use Morning Sun - you should be able to grab a little bit of health. If you've used Morning Sun already and you still can't see Firestrike for some reason, use Agility.

Drill Run/Morning Sun ~ Drill Run/Morning Sun/Agility ~ Drill Run/Morning Sun/Agility
