Alright, let's do this.

Reflect anything that can be reflected with Magic Coat. Start with Rock Tomb, then use Dark Pulse and Shadow Ball. Fingers crossed for hax! If Addlemunch makes clones, use Shock Wave.

Rock Tomb/Magic Coat/Shock Wave~Dark Pulse/Magic Coat/Shock Wave~Shadow Ball/Magic Coat/Shock Wave

Alrighty, let's take advantage of that Magic Coat conditional. Worry Seed twice, then finish with a Swagger to nab the Set-Up Specialist Mastery. That should do it!

Round Nine

I liek Squirtles (xoO)
elgyem
Luke Skywalker (M) Synchronize
Health: 67%
Energy: 81%
Status: Marking the final countdown.
Commands: Rock Tomb/Magic Coat/Shock Wave~Dark Pulse/Magic Coat/Shock Wave~Shadow Ball/Magic Coat/Shock Wave

Eta Carinae (oxO)
munnamoon-stone
Addlemunch (M) Forewarn
Health: 67%
Energy: 77%
Status: Readying himself, though cradling his foreleg. Shadow Ball and Shock Wave are Imprisoned (6 more actions). SpA +1, SpD -1, Spd -1.
Commands: Worry Seed x2 ~ Swagger

As the audience looks on, holding their breath, Luke Skywalker waits for Addlemunch to make the first move. Addlemunch, poking his foreleg gingerly, has an idea. Knowing that Luke will be reactive in this critical final round, he floats over, drawing grassy energy into his mouth from his body. The energy coalesces into a seed, which Addlemunch casually spits in Luke’s direction … and just when the seed makes contact with Luke’s body, his entire body gleams brightly in a reflective coating, sending the seed ricocheting back to plant itself in Addlemunch’s shoulder. Little tendrils of roots quickly work their way into his system, and Addlemunch’s beady eyes widen as a feeling of horrible distress overcomes him. His special prophetic power finds itself the fuel for the seed’s growth, and without it, he feels rather blind. Nevertheless, putting his trust in his trainer, he repeats the process, and soon the seed’s twin is embedded in his other shoulder. He’s positively jittery at this point, looking around as if everything is out to get him. Even those audience members seem suspicious …

But he has to do this, one way or the other. Determined to get the upper hand decisively, he sticks his snout into the air, remarking that there’s absolutely no way a weakling like his opponent could walk away from this victorious. So caught up is he in his insults that he hardly notices Luke flash for a third time, but his attention is definitely captured when he catches wind of his own badmouthing getting reflected back at him. Furious, Addlemunch bristles, and his limbs start shaking. How dare that hack use his own insults against him! For his part, Luke just cracks a little smile at Addlemunch’s impotent rage. It’s not like he can channel that into something useful at this point, after all.

The ref signals with an eager flag, and the two combatants regard her anxiously, awaiting the verdict ...

munna
Addlemunch (M) Forewarn Imsomnia

Status: Itching for things to continue. Worry Seeded. Confused (severe, 50% chance of failure). Shadow Ball and Shock Wave are Imprisoned (3 more actions). Att +2, SpA +1, SpD -1, Spd -1.
Actions: Worry Seed ~ Worry Seed ~ Swagger


Elementalist:
- Luke Skywalker has used moves of 5 types (Dark, Electric, Ghost, Psychic, Rock).
- Addlemunch has used moves of 7 types (Electric, Fairy, Ghost, Grass, Normal, Psychic, Rock).

Set-Up Specialist:
- Luke Skywalker has a net stat total of 0.
- Addlemunch has a net stat total of 1.

Arena Notes:
- A Lucky Egg has rolled under someone’s chair.
- Bits of the floor are scattered around both Pokemon.

Calculations:
- Luke Skywalker’s health: 67% + 1% (Moon Stone) + 1% (Moon Stone) + 1% (Moon Stone) = 70%
- Luke Skywalker’s energy: 81% - 3% (Magic Coat) + 1% (Moon Stone) - 3% (Magic Coat) + 1% (Moon Stone) - 3% (Magic Coat) + 1% (Moon Stone) = 75%
- Addlemunch’s health: 67%
- Addlemunch’s energy: 77% - 3% (Worry Seed) - 3% (Worry Seed) - 4% (Swagger) = 67%

Other Notes:
- Luke Skywalker outspeeds Addlemunch (30 > 14).
- For this bout, Luke’s health + energy comes to 145, while Addlemunch sits a ways behind at 134. However, Addlemunch nabs both masteries this time around, which means that with a total score of 174 to Luke’s 145, Addlemunch is the winner, giving Eta Carinae a 2-1 win for the match overall!

Prizes:
- Eta Carinae is victorious! He receives $30 and a Rare Candy, and gets to move onto the next round of the tournament. Plattitude gets 2 exp, Scootch gets 1 exp, and Addlemunch gets 2 exp and can now evolve.

- pathos, Eifie and I split $25.
- Good game to both of you! It was fun to see you guys go back and forth, and it was really anyone’s game. Thanks for being such great battlers!

Way to go, Addlemunch!!!

Thanks for the nerve-wracking, nail-biting, insomnia-inducing battle, ILS. I never had any idea until I saw that final score who would walk away with this one, it was just that close. We match up well, we'll have to do it again sometime, and when that happens we'll make sure we don't have a tricky round limit to work around :P

Thanks for reffing Totodile! And Eifie! And pathos too!

Interestingly, I thought all along you were gonna win. :P The second round came as a total surprise. It was a great match, regardless, and we have to absolutely fight some other time because this was amazing. Even though I lost, it was worth it.

Thanks for reffing, all you refs! And thanks to you, Eta, for being a great opponent. Best of luck in the next round! :D
