Banned/restricted moves: One-hit KO moves, only 5 chills and 3 direct healing per Pokemon.
Arena: Mario Kart Stadium

Mario Kart Stadium is a figure-eight shaped track about 30 feet wide and 60 feet long, with an overpass where it meets. (Like in Smash Bros!)
However, after 3 rounds, a race will start. At the end of every round, if a race is going on, a random Pokemon on the field will take 5% damage and a random effect based on the driver. A list is below, and it is a random driver each time.
Mario: The Pokemon is now Burned.
Luigi: The Pokemon is now Paralyzed.
Donkey Kong: The Pokemon takes 10% damage instead of 5%.
Peach: The Pokemon gets a -1 Atk/-1 Sp. Atk stat decreasement.
Toad: The Pokemon is now Paralyzed.
Bowser: The Pokemon takes 8% damage instead of 5% and is now Burned.
Koopa Troopa: The Pokemon gets a -1 Def/-1 Sp. Def decreasement.
Lakitu: A Spiny spawns on the field. It is a 30 HP/Infinite Energy Bug/Poison Pokemon with no Experience that is controlled by the ref and can use Rapid Spin, Withdraw, Pin Missile, Toxic, Slam, Selfdestruct, and Bug Bite. If there is only 1 non-ref player left, all Spinies on the field instantly take 50,000,000,000 damage.

Dragoknight, time for yours too!
Who is my foe?
The Starly! Now, start off with Swords Dance, then hold him down with Smack Down, then wreck him with Rock Slide! If he tries to avoid Smack Down on action 2, then use it again on Action 3 instead of Rock Slide. If he tries to avoid it there, too, then use Swords Dance! So:
Swords Dance - Smack Down - Rock Slide/Smack Down/Swords Dance

Ack. Right, let's see what we can do...

Octavian, I want you to convince Dragoknight you're the best little bird around-- Attract and maybe wink saucily as he dances if that's your kind of thing the first action. Then I want you to Agility the heck away from that Smack Down. Preferably, wait a second (until she's about to throw the rock) and then outspeed it with the Agility, and get a good distance away if you can.

On your third action, use another Agility to get away again if you feel like you're close enough to get hit by the second Smack Down. If you're good and far away, go with an Omnious Wind.

Attract ~ Agility ~ Agility/Omnious Wind

Nobody's exactly sure how it got it, but the Asber League’s Number-One Abra has had the ability for some time now to teleport between dimensions. And it has, of course, taught all of the other League Abra how to do the same thing. As well as any other pokémon that asks.

Today, that ability is used to get to the Mario Kart Stadium. People begin to file into the stands, clearly ready to watch the battle that’s about to begin. And so, as soon as the two combatants arrive and the referee has teleported in with his Xatu, callously disregarding the League’s courteous offer of a transportation Abra, the trainers send out their pokémon right in the middle of the track. On one side, a cute little bird pokémon that hops a couple of times and chirps brightly, and on the other side a not-so-cute looking Binacle that stares steadfastly towards its opponent. Wasting no further time, the referee procures flags and signals the battle to begin.

Round 1

Birdcrest (OOO)

Dragoknight – Binacle (♀)
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Ability: Tough Claws
Type: Rock / Water
Condition: Focused and menacing.
Status: Normal
Commands: Swords Dance ~ Smack Down ~ Rock Slide / Smack Down / Swords Dance

Faorzia (OOO)
starly
Octavian Rush – Starly (♂)
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Ability: Keen Eye
Type: Normal / Flying
Condition: A bit carefree.
Status: Normal
Commands: Attract ~ Agility ~ Agility / Ominous Wind

Octavian Rush begins the battle by hopping over to his stoic opponent and chirping a few words of love – he’s a charmer, he is – while cracking a sexy pose (at least, it would be sexy as hell to any other pidove; he hopes Dragoknight would feel the same way) and even daring to talk a little bit dirty. And he points out the fact that the he and his opponent are both here today, at the race track – it’s like a date, you know? Maybe we were destined to be.

The humans, not knowing how to speak pokémon for the most part, simply stare in confusion as Dragoknight receives his opponent’s advance with a straight face. Octavian Rush begins to wonder if his opponent even heard his words when Dragoknight hops back a couple of times and begins to spin her heads around in a strange dancing motion. Maybe that means she liked it? Anyway, she doesn’t seem to be attacking for the time being – oh, scrap that, he tossed a rock, time to run.

Octavian Rush lives up to his name, quickly darting past the stone his opponent digs out of the ground and tosses at him, and fluttering up to the railing of the overpass up above. Dragoknight glances up at her opponent, her eyes forming into regretful expressions, as if to say “I just wanted to play, is that okay?” But Octavian Rush won’t buy that quite yet. His opponent just tried to attack him as a sign of live, and he doesn’t appreciate that.

As Octavian Rush doesn’t seem to be coming down, Dragoknight tries another Swords Dance – it seemed to work last time, and maybe it will get her opponent to come back down so that she can apologize. But the Starly doesn’t seem in the mood for apologies right now, instead summoning a ghostly power and, talons digging into the railing he stands on, flaps his wings to imbue the air around him with that spectral flare, and send it towards his opponent. The Ominous Wind whips quickly towards Dragoknight, who cringes a little as she weathers the assault, and wonders where exactly she went wrong? Did she express her interest the wrong way? Her opponent doesn’t seem to be that interested anymore, so what was that first action about? She’s so confused.

End of Round 1

Birdcrest (OOO)

Dragoknight – Binacle (♀)
Health: 96%
Energy: 95%
Ability: Tough Claws
Type: Rock / Water
Condition: Trying to figure out her opponent’s mentality.
Status: Attack +4.
Actions: Swords Dance ~ Smack Down (Missed) ~ Swords Dance

Faorzia (OOO)
starly
Octavian Rush – Starly (♂)
Health: 100%
Energy: 91%
Ability: Keen Eye
Type: Normal / Flying
Condition: Suspicious and wary of his opponent.
Status: Normal
Commands: Attract ~ Agility ~ Ominous Wind

Referee Notes
~Smack Down missed on Action 2 due to Agility.
~As Agility was used to dodge, it did not raise Speed.
~On Action 3, as Faorzia was instructed to get out of range of Smack Down and didn’t seem to be coming back, Dragoknight interpreted that as trying to avoid Smack Down, and thus used Swords Dance.
~Due to the distance, Ominous Wind suffered a damage penalty.
~Faorzia commands first.

Set yourself up a Double Team, then all of you dance at once a very Feathery Dance. Lastly, Revenge! Because why not.

Double Team ~ Feather Dance ~ Revenge

Round 2

Birdcrest (OOO)

Dragoknight – Binacle (♀)
Health: 96%
Energy: 95%
Ability: Tough Claws
Type: Rock / Water
Condition: Trying to figure out her opponent’s mentality.
Status: Attack +4.
Commands: Rock Slide ~ Smack Down ~ Protect

Faorzia (OOO)

Octavian Rush – Starly (♂)
Health: 100%
Energy: 91%
Ability: Keen Eye
Type: Normal / Flying
Condition: Suspicious and wary of his opponent.
Status: Normal
Commands: Double Team ~ Feather Dance ~ Revenge

As the second round began, Octavian Rush flew immediately into action. He launched himself off of the overpass, and began to fly in a close circle, faster and faster – almost showing off to his opponent, but with a purpose. When he soon came to a stop, there were five of him. Dragoknight’s eyes widened – almost imperceptibly, but the gesture of surprise was there. But immediately, she shook her two arms as if in disgust, and then made a motion to pull out chunks of the overpass. Not terribly large chunks, and not large enough to make the whole thing crash down, but enough to cover a reasonably wide area. And that they did, crushing every single one of Octavian Rush’s clones, save for one, which itself disappeared as the real Octavian Rush let out a sharp squawk of pain.

That wasn’t okay! Octavian Rush was not going to let himself be beaten by this slow, plebian barnacle! That attack had hit far too hard, and he needed to be softened up a little bit. Regaining his balance in the air and quickly descending to the ground, Octavian Rush flapped his wings frantically, so hard that several of his feathers dislodged themselves and began to fly towards his opponent, sticking somehow to Dragoknight’s claws and even tickling her a little, though she barely showed any registry of the Featherdance save for a small narrowing of the eyes. And in return for the wonderful feather coating, she scooped up a section of hard asphalt from nearby and chucked it straight at her opponent.

Once again, Octavian Rush let out a squeal of pain, as the rock struck his wing with an almost otherworldly precision. And the pain didn’t go away – he tried for a moment to flutter upwards, but could only make it a few feet before collapsing back on the ground. He couldn’t fly! How dare that Binacle, taking away his flight! She had to pay! Octavian Rush rushed forward in rage, gathering power in her good wing and preparing for an uppercut. But when she arrived and launched the attack, all she saw was Octavian Rush glaring at her from behind a familiar green shield. The Starly landed clumsily and took a couple of short hops backwards, leaving a couple of angry squawks at his opponent as she let down her Protect and glanced back at her trainer for more orders.

End of Round 2

Birdcrest (OOO)

Dragoknight – Binacle (♀)
Health: 96%
Energy: 81%
Ability: Tough Claws
Type: Rock / Water
Condition: Pretty satisfied.
Status: Attack +2.
Actions: Rock Slide ~ Smack Down ~ Protect

Faorzia (OOO)
starly
Octavian Rush – Starly (♂)
Health: 71%
Energy: 82%
Ability: Keen Eye
Type: Normal / Flying
Condition: Angered.
Status: Flight impaired.
Actions: Double Team ~ Feather Dance ~ Revenge

Referee Notes
~As the number of clones was not specified, Octavian Rush made his maximum amount with Double Team, which was 4.
~In preparation for Feather Dance, which wouldn’t work from a large distance, Octavian Rush came closer when using Double Team. Not that he wasn’t in range of Rock Slide in the first place – being an arena-based attack, Octavian Rush wasn’t too far away to get hit by rocks coming from a little bit behind him.
~Birdcrest attacks first next round.

Time to finish him!
And I know how! Let's get rid of those annoying status moves with a Taunt! Then, use
a Stone Edge! And just in case, use Protect. As for subs:
If Taunt does not hit on Action 1, then use it again on Action 2 and Stone Edge on Action 3.
If, somehow, Taunt doesn't work on Actions 1 or 2, then use Swords Dance on action 3. So:
Taunt - Stone Edge/Taunt - Protect/Stone Edge/Swords Dance

Tavvy I apologize for what I am about to ask you to do

Take all your stress out on that mean, mean Binacle. Which means taking all her attacks this round like the manly bird you are.

Round 3

Birdcrest (OOO)

Dragoknight – Binacle (♀)
Health: 96%
Energy: 81%
Ability: Tough Claws
Type: Rock / Water
Condition: Pretty satisfied.
Status: Attack +2.
Actions: Taunt - Stone Edge / Taunt - Protect / Stone Edge / Swords Dance

Faorzia (OOO)
starly
Octavian Rush – Starly (♂)
Health: 71%
Energy: 82%
Ability: Keen Eye
Type: Normal / Flying
Condition: Angered.
Status: Flight impaired.
Actions: Frustration ~ Revenge ~ Roost

As Octavian Rush’s trainer was giving the Starly commands, Dragoknight leered at his opponent, capturing his attention. Octavain Rush glared back, only to see Dragoknight succinctly close his eyes and wave his hands back and forth, in a blatant gesture of disrespect. Clearly, Dragoknight didn’t think much of Octavian Rush, and that made the Starly very angry. First the Binacle took away his ability to fly, and then he gave such a terrible gesture of disrespect? Unforgiveable! Octavian Rush, without waiting for his trainer’s last command, leapt forward, doing his best to use his wings for momentum, and rammed his head into his opponent. Dragoknight’s eyes snapped open in surprise, the impact being far more than he would have expected from a Normal-type attack.

But the Starly’s attack had left the bird pokémon wide open for a counter-attack, and Dragoknight was more than keen enough to capitalize on the opportunity. With a grunt, the Binacle slammed his arms on the ground, and before Octavian Rush had time to react, the road burst into rubble as spikes of rock shot out and launched the Starly into the air harshly. The bird pokémon’s flying abilities neutered for the moment, Octavian Rush could do nothing but attempt to use his wings to control his trajectory – and thankfully, that was something he managed to do. After a second, Dragoknight glanced upwards at his foe to ascertain how his attack had gone, and was very surprised indeed to see the Starly falling straight down towards him, the bird’s good wing glowing with Fighting energy.

Dragoknight, like his opponent before his attack, had no time to react. Octavian Rush’s landing was quite amazing, in fact, and had a go-kart race not been preparing to start just past the overpass under which the battlers were battling, the crowd would have cheered him on. At any rate, Dragoknight was forced quite far back by the attack, and immediately threw up a Protect shield to make sure that didn’t happen again. Octavian Rush began to follow him, but his trainer’s orders stopped him – roost? How was he supposed to roost at a time like this? He’d just gotten his opponent back for everything; now was the time to finish him! And those taunts at the beginning of the round, he still hadn’t forgiven Dragoknight for those. But, in the face of the protect shield, all the Starly could do was hop up and down a few times, waiting for it to disappear so that he could pummel his opponent some more.

The referee waved his flags just as the race began, stripping Octavian Rush of that opportunity. Soon, the Go-Karts would be coming, after all, and the battlers needed to prepare for that.

End of Round 3

Hm...

Let's show them what a Brave Bird you are. Then go in for an Endeavor and then Roost, but preferably don't settle down on the track.
I think your Taunt is gone by now? hopefully. If you can't hit on any action, then Work Up.

Brave Bird/Work Up ~ Endeavor/Work Up ~ Roost/Work Up

Okay, so...
More of the same?
Basically. Taunt, Stone Edge, create a shield with Rock Slide. If Taunt doesn't work Action 1, then use it again until it hits. Also, if the shield won't work, just Rock Slide normally. So:
Taunt - Stone Edge/Taunt - Rock Slide(Shield)/Rock Slide

Round 4

Birdcrest (OOO)

Dragoknight – Binacle (♀)
Health: 70%
Energy: 69%
Ability: Tough Claws
Type: Rock / Water
Condition: Cautious.
Status: Attack +2.
Actions: Taunt ~ Stone Edge / Taunt ~ Rock Slide (Shield) / Rock Slide

Faorzia (OOO)
starly
Octavian Rush – Starly (♂)
Health: 46%
Energy: 71%
Ability: Keen Eye
Type: Normal / Flying
Condition: Antsy.
Status: Flight impaired.
Actions: Brave Bird / Work Up ~ Endeavor / Work Up ~ Roost / Work Up

Working himself up despite the harsh last few rounds, Octavian Rush was still ready for more. More pummeling, that was, of his opponent. And though he might not be able to fly for any length of time, he was at least powerful enough to jump in the air and cloak his wings in flying-type energy that soon overtook his entire body. In a head-on assault, Octavian Rush slammed into Dragoknight’s body and sent the Binacle sliding backwards along the Asphalt a little bit. But Dragoknight was resolute – instead of cowering at his opponent, he taunted him, growling that that attack was pitiful, and he’d seen Magikarp who hit harder. Not a very brave attack, even, there wasn’t much at risk anyway. A real knight would hit harder, like he was about to.

Hit harder? Octavian Rush’s eyes turned fiery. He would show his opponent what it meant to hit harder. In a fit of rage, he rushed forward and pummeled Dragoknight with an attack that now was much more potent – no longer attacking with Flying-type energy, Octavian Rush was fighting with sheer willpower, hurting his opponent as severely as possible, sharing the pain he’d taken with blow after harsh blow, pummeling Dragoknight into utter submission...until the Binacle let out a grunt and struck back with one arm, forcing Octavian Rush backwards into a spike rising from the road. The Stone Edge was more than enough to stop Octavian Rush’s attack, forcing the Starly back, and, satisfied that his opponent was finished for the round, Dragoknight started on his next order of business.

He waved his arms around a little bit and the Stone Edge returned to the ground, while the rocks that earlier had fallen on Octavian Rush and his clones began to once again float above the ground, suspended by Rock-type energy. Carefully, and with great control, Dragoknight brought them closer to him, behind him, and began to let them down in some sort of wall behind him. Octavian Rush watched in envy – he was supposed to be taking down his opponent, but there was nothing for him to do; his trainer had ordered him to Roost, once again, but how could he when Dragoknight was presenting such an obvious opening for a frontal assault? He shook his head – he had to attack somehow! But as he pushed himself off of the road again and began to move forward, the sounds of motors from the distance began to increase. And then, suddenly, from behind Octavian Rush’s rock wall, which the Binacle had just completed and was now using as a sinister backdrop, came a surge of go-karts of all sorts of different colors – one red, one pink, one green, purple, yellow, black, brown...and a blue one that hurled around the corner with sparks erupting from its back tires. Toad released his brakes and sloppily charged forward, with a sudden burst of speed that Octavian Rush couldn’t predict. The Starly was struck unawares by the driver, who paid the pokémon little mind and simply focused on controlling his kart and catching up to the other drivers. Dragoknight, thankful for his shield, sneered down at his opponent, crumpled on the ground and coughing from the spores that Toad had left behind. Octavian Rush was in a sorry state, ripe for finishing off.

End of Round 4

Birdcrest (OOO)

Dragoknight – Binacle (♀)
Health: 37%
Energy: 55%
Ability: Tough Claws
Type: Rock / Water
Condition: Cautious.
Status: Attack +2. Severely Paralyzed.
Actions: Taunt ~ Stone Edge / Taunt ~ Rock Slide (Shield) / Rock Slide

Faorzia (OOO)
starly
Octavian Rush – Starly (♂)
Health: 17%
Energy: 56%
Ability: Keen Eye
Type: Normal / Flying
Condition: Antsy.
Status: Flight impaired.
Actions: Brave Bird ~ Endeavor ~ Nothing

Referee Notes
~Octavian Rush was not commanded to wait on Action 2, and thus used Endeavor before being hit by Stone Edge.
~Octavian Rush’s Taunt wore off at the end of the third action, but due to it still being in effect during the action, Octavian Rush did nothing.
~Dragoknight’s Rock Slide shield would have repelled small– and middleweight drivers, but heavyweights like Bowser or DK would be able to go straight through, though with reduced speed and consequently dealing slightly less damage.
~But that’s somewhat of a moot point, since Octavian Rush was the one who got hit, and it was by Toad.
~Birdcrest commands first next round.

It is time! The foe is weak and ripe for defeat!
Did you just (cough) quote (cough) Prince Dreambert?
Well, I've been playing a lot of Dream Team IRL, so-
Don't (cough) break the fourth wall!
Whatever. So, more of the same. Keep a Taunt up, deal a lot of damage. So:
Taunt - Stone Edge/Taunt - Rock Slide shield/Taunt
If Taunt doesn't work A1, use it on A2. If it doesn't hit there, use it A3. Not too hard.
NOTE: Dash = between actions, Slash = subs. That might be confusing.

you know what?
this
might actually work.

but it means going for broke.

Tavvy! I'm sorry I'm such a noob, but their command string might have left us something to work with. in any case, you're a good bird--

Endeavor the first two actions, then tell Dragoknight exactly how you feel with another Frustration. If you're too tired to pull off a good bit of anger and/or birdlike rage, use a Quick Attack to get away from the racetrack and try not to get hit.


Endeavor ~ Endeavor ~ Frustration/Quick Attack (get away from the track)

End of Round 4

Birdcrest (OOO)

Dragoknight – Binacle (♀)
Health: 37%
Energy: 55%
Ability: Tough Claws
Type: Rock / Water
Condition: Cautious.
Status: Attack +2.
Commands: Taunt ~ Stone Edge / Taunt ~ Rock Slide (Shield) / Taunt

Faorzia (OOO)
starly
Octavian Rush – Starly (♂)
Health: 17%
Energy: 56%
Ability: Keen Eye
Type: Normal / Flying
Condition: Antsy.
Status: Flight impaired. Severely Paralyzed.
Commands: Endeavor ~ Endeavor ~ Frustration / Quick Attack (get away from the track)

The moment the referee starts the next round, the antsy Octavian Rush surges forward, desperate to defeat his opponent as quickly as possible. Like he did the last time he attacked, he batters his opponent with blow after blow, using the fact that as a Starly his wings are stronger than those of most other Flying-type pokémon to his advantage and nailing Dragoknight with just about every part of his body. The Binacle winces, struggling to maintain his composure, but as his opponent beats him up, he continues to taunt him. Between blows, he brags about his incredible defensive abilities, and how weak his opponent is – to him, his taunts seem weaker, having been tried over and over, but they seem to be enough.

Octavian Rush doesn’t stop, though his attacks lose their edge over time as the bird pokémon begins to tire. And that, he is perceptive enough to realize, is his chance. With a grunt, he pushes his opponent off of himself and slams the ground with his hand, once again making the road spike up underneath his opponent. This time, the attack is too much for Octavian Rush, and rather than catching himself in the air by trying to flutter down, he simply flops against the asphalt of the track. He doesn’t get back up.

Immediately, Dragoknight makes a move to call up more boulders and make himself another shield, but he’s stopped by the referee’s flag – no unfair moves, while he doesn’t have an opponent on the field. Dragoknight looks nervously backwards, only to see that the wall he had last action has crumbled, small rocks littering the ground. And before Dragoknight can take evasive action, the racers turn onto the straightaway and there’s no time left. Faorzia deliberately takes a while to choose her next pokémon while Mario, fireball in hand and paying more attention to his rival racers than to the track, drives straight into one of the rocks and spins out right into Dragoknight, dropping the fireball in the process. Being a Water-type doesn’t really help Dragoknight escape from the burn, which begins to throb steadily, and Mario is off again as soon as he can be, to recover the two places he lost in the collision.

End of Round 4

Birdcrest (OOO)

Dragoknight – Binacle (♀)
Health: 12%
Energy: 46%
Ability: Tough Claws
Type: Rock / Water
Condition: Quickly tiring.
Status: Attack +2. Moderately burned.
Actions: Taunt ~ Stone Edge

Faorzia (OOO)
starly
Octavian Rush – Starly (♂)
Health: 0%
Energy: 44%
Ability: Keen Eye
Type: Normal / Flying
Condition: Unconscious.
Status: Knocked Out!
Actions: Endeavor ~ Endeavor (Failed)

Referee Notes
~Octavian Rush’s Endeavor failed on action 2, as he and Dragoknight had the same amount of health.
~Stone Edge on the second action KOed Octavian Rush.
~Dragoknight was hit by Mario, having had not enough time to use Rock Slide before the end of the round.
~Faorzia sends out and commands, and then Birdcrest will command.

[02:23:20] @amr97: The term is usually associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation.
[02:24:26] +Superbird: opinions, amr97, not definitions
