somehow, you and your pokemon have gotten sucked into Twitter Itself! everyone is now a party sprite, standing in the middle of a vaguely cleared-out central hub where all the tweets are flying around to their destinations. the ground is flat and pokemon will be able to find their footing just fine, although they might be a little disoriented at all the tweets rushing about them.

this is an old version of twitter, so every post the trainers make will have to fit the old character limit of 140 characters (excluding the actual command string, because Twitter Itself understands those things). because twitter is not a functional platform, trick room is in play for the entire duration of this battle, and because twitter is an electronic platform electric terrain is happening for the entire duration of the battle.

because this is twitter, tweets other than trainers' commands are getting posted, and they're flying about everywhere! these tweets are shaped like paper airplanes, and all are certainly steady enough for a party sprite to ride on, provided they can jump onto one with trick room happening and all that. because this is social media, the tweets are also responsive to pokemon energy, and will be rallied if a pokemon needs to summon something for a move - you could totally have a surf of tweets, or a rock throw, or whatever. there's no way to change the weather, though.

every round, there's a chance that a tweet will do something! a tweet first has to make contact with a pokemon, though, and this frequency is left to the discretion of the ref because i have no real idea of how large or small chances are.
all tweet contact chance/effects will happen at the end of the round, because this is when i think pokemon are paying the least attention. upon contact, tweets can divulge their message to the pokemon. this message can be any sound-based move. these moves are not affected by the damage cap, because this is twitter and the moves do damage to your soul itself - i mean, to your energy instead! so pokemon will have to be careful about that.

trainers can also (and do) write tweets to the opposing trainer, which will allow them to limit the trainer's next commands in a strictly flavorish way; they may not expressly forbid specific moves or move types, but they can specify that the commands have to, like, rhyme or something. the trainer that commands second in the round will post this tweet-restriction (also in the form of a tweet!!!) before the other trainer commands for that round.
if the trainer does not comply with the tweet, they will be attacked by a flood of negatively minded suburban soccer moms' opinions, and their pokemon will have a hard time understanding their next commands - again, at a chance set at the discretion of the ref, which should be a chance high enough to be amusing but low enough to not be frustrating. when pokemon are confused by a tweet, they'll just stand around looking confused, and probably get hit by a tweet if it's the end of the round.

tl;dr
we fight in Twitter Itself.
electric terrain is happening.
trick room is happening.
no weather changes. (clear weather throughout.)
your command flavor has to be 140 characters or less (your command string doesn't count towards this).
tweets are shaped like paper airplanes, but are much sturdier and can definitely hold a pokemon.
tweets are flying around everywhere and can crash into a pokemon.
crashing can happen at the end of each round.
upon crash, your pokemon is hit by one randomized sound move.
if the move is damaging, it does that percent of damage to your pokemon's energy, not hp.
every round before commands are posted, the trainer that will command second posts a flavor restriction on commands for that round.
if you don't write your command flavor to fit, your pokemon's actions on the next round each have a small failure chance.

brb, making a twitter

edit: a) I have now realized that that was not a real twitter; b) I will save it for when I am actually supposed to be tweeting.

Let's go, Indyelle!

Resource if unfamiliar with dril; dril's non-retweet tweets only; you can also get lots from googling "best dril tweets" or something.

Commands: Knock Off ~ Knock Off ~ Knock Off

-----

whats with this messed up room... everything is upside down & the phanpy is hovering cause its got some kind of air Balloon... the abra looks pretty ready to go, looks like it's done this before? things look a little broken in here and actually dont ask me which way is up Cause it could be either. the pokemon look kind of squished and 2D but anyway, there's lots of posts going around and make sure to duck when you need to so you dont get hit with a tweet. theyre kind of everywhere in here.."friendly reminder not to commit any Crimes in 2018" says a sign next to the ref but lol okay anyway we're gonna hit some things in here

indyelle shouldnt be able to move first, but she doesbecause of the weird room. she swings her tiny trunk at dreamling... it connects with a loud thwack. euauh! that hurt her trunk as well as dreamlings face. horrible scene... dremling backs away shrieking an expletive & she doesnt even realize that she dropped her link cable. sorry, sorry! says the phanpy.. but she doesn't think that she did what she meant to, what was supposed to be removed?

no. says dreamling, and she whips up this clear wall that somehow connects to the ground and covers the abra?? but it looks pretty solid

okay, says indeylle, maybe it was the magic guard because there's nothing else there.. (she didn't see the Link cable fall either..) she swings her trunk at the abra again and god that's gotta hurt. Sorry! im sorry. Im trying to remove it, she says, kind of both to abra and to her trainer. tho it doesnt look like it hurt as much, because of the barrier...

well dreamling isnt too happy about this continued assault on her so she starts to say some stuff too. "you are a pathetic, frail follower and the more i think about it , i just dont think you can do it" says dreamling, and indyelle is not having any of it, shes more like "some fool's just need to be knocked the crap out of" and prances around a little (her feet still are in the air because she has that balloon Item and it looks a little funny even though shes rage.. she tried to be so nice) but she is done moving this action anyway so it'll have to wait

anyway indyelle figures she better keep trying because you konw what they say..if you fail constantly, and you do other bad things. "You will get $1,000,000 soon." *SMACK* she hits dreamling again and the abra goes spinning backwards and damn, didn't that work yet?? indyelle's starting to get frustrated, and a little panicy - "Im SORRY okay, i was wrong on this one, i don't know why its not working"

dreamling kind of figures maybe indyelle isn't getting it so she'll try to help out a bit.. "how embarrassing" says the abra as she gathers up a big container of glittery light and ssshhhh-BAM this big blast of fairy light crashes into the phanpy. this hurts a lot and suddenly indyelle crashes back to the floor because the Item it was carrying got destroyed by the light beam. crap

now that the pokemon are done moving for a second, the messages are still kind of everywhere. Stand Your Ground and don't get hit by one but *FWOOSH* that one came really close but no. no one got hit.

End of Round Twitter Effects

Tweet @Dreamling:

Tweet @Indyelle:
Accuracy: 50% (roll ≤ 50 for hit): rolled 72, missed
Move: (roll 1-26 for move): rolled n/a



Notes:
  • god this hurt to write, it would be great if we could have a theme with better grammar/punctuation/capitalization next time! XD
  • Some pieces/phrases of this are lifted directly from dril's tweets
  • Because dril seems to tweet a lot, I went with a 50% chance this round of getting hit with a tweet. I'm using this list for randomizing sound based moves. Neither Pokemon got hit with a move this time.
  • Indyelle knocked off Dreamling's Link Cable in action 1, removing Dreamling's Trace/Pickup ability.
  • Dreamling popped Indyelle's Air Balloon in action 3, removing Indyelle's Levitate ability.
  • I got so distracted by trying to write like this that I don't remember if there were any other important things to bring up!
  • As always, if you see any mistakes or things that I overlooked (especially arena features that I may have missed!) please let me know!
