-Visitor Message sends out first
-Keldeo sends out and commands

A quick clarification: does the 'before each turn' in the arena description mean before each round, or before each action?

Yeah, it should mean before each round.

Let's show them how it's done, Li Feng.

I'll see your Poison type and raise you another. It's all yours, Vesper.

Start with a quick Supersonic; make sure you're close enough that Li Feng can hear your foul screeching in all its glory. After that, use Payback (you should be close enough that you don't have to focus too much to aim) and end with Tailwind. If she protects on either of your first two actions, use Curse. If you're taunted on action two or three and she's protecting, do nothing. If by action three you haven't used Payback and she is not protecting on action three, use Payback on action three. If taunt prevents you from carrying out Supersonic or Tailwind and she is not protecting, use Payback.

Supersonic / Curse / Payback ~ Payback / Curse / nothing ~ Tailwind / Payback / nothing

Alright, Li Feng, start by using Substitute. Follow that up by using Glare to paralyze Vesper. On the last turn, use Thief and steal her Black Sludge.

Substitute (15%) ~ Glare ~ Thief

Arena Description: An enormous black Rubik's cube is suspended in an endless void. A glowing light pours out of the cracks in its surface, radiating a strange kind of energy. Before each round, the color of the light changes randomly to a hue signifying one of the eighteen types. Any moves of this type are 1.5x effective.
The referee appears on top of the Rubik's cube in a flash of white light, accompanied by a League teleporter Abra, who promptly disappears again. The two Trainers appear moments after with their own Abras, and as the League Pokemon teleport back off to ASB Central, they all pause for a moment to take a good look around. It's difficult to make out the difference between the black Rubik's cube and the expanse of black space, but just as their eyes start to adjust to the darkness, the Rubik's cube starts to emit a white light. Soon, it is bright enough to see clearly, and the three move through the usual pre-battle arrangements quickly, eager to get the battle started.

The Trainers move to opposite sides of the cube and select Pokemon. Visitor Message sends out a Pokemon first, sending Li Feng the Seviper out of her Pokeball in a burst of white light. Keldeo chooses next, sending out a very excited Vesper the Zubat, a small pouch containing her Black Sludge tied loosely around her neck. The referee nods and raises her flags to signal the beginning of the battle, and as she brings them down, the light emitted by the cube flashes and changes to a pale yellowish-green.

ROUND 1

Visitor Message (Oo)
seviper
[Li Feng] F <Shed Skin>
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Status: Eyes darting around suspiciously.

Keldeo (Oo)
zubat (black-sludge)
[Vesper] F <Inner Focus>
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Status: Ready to go!

Li Feng is a bit quicker to move than Vesper. She makes a retching noise and shakes her head sharply as a purple substance begins to flow from her fangs, pooling on the smooth surface of the Rubik's cube. The flow from her fangs ends abruptly, and in front of her, the ooze starts to congeal into a long, Serviper-like shape. One end of the shape curls up sharply in the air to form a makeshift head, and Li Feng looks at her completed Substitute with some pride.

Vesper is distracted only momentarily as Li Feng creates her Substitute. As the construct turns its attention to her, Vesper flies right up into its face and screeches at the top of her lungs, flapping her wings erratically. To her surprise, the makeshift Seviper does… nothing at all. It looks at Vesper blankly, clearly unaffected by her attack. Vesper and the substitute share an awkward moment while Li Feng hisses in amusement behind them.

The Seviper slithers up beside her Substitute and raises herself up to get nice and close to Vesper's head, and gives her the most menacing glare she can muster. This time, it's Vesper's turn to float there blankly. Through echolocation she can tell Li Feng is right up in her face, but she doesn't seem to be doing anything there? Or if she is, Vesper can't see it. Despite that, she's pretty weirded out by their proximity and feeling really uncomfortable, so she nervously flaps backwards a few inches with a worried clicking noise.

Vesper shivers for a moment, then refocuses and dives at full speed straight towards Li Feng's face. Her wings start glowing with a faint dark aura, but before she can collide with Li Feng, the Seviper's Subsitute dives in the way and takes the brunt of the blow. The Zubat claws away a large amount of the purple substance but the Substitute still remains upright, albeit a lot less substantial than it looked before.

Li Feng looks down at her belly in disdain, where some of the purple substance splashed onto her, then up at the Zubat, a couple feet away. With a hiss, she whips around and slashes her tail blade out at Vesper with surprising speed, clearing the distance between them easily. Vesper cries out in surprise as a shallow cut opens up on her chest, and the string holding the Black Sludge around her neck falls away. Before she can swoop down and reclaim it, Li Feng has already wrapped the pouch up in her tail, and has retreated behind her Substitute, making mocking hissing noises.

Vesper's wings are already beating the air rather quickly in her nervousness, but she begins to flap them even faster, starting to work up a light breeze. Even after the speed of her wings returns to normal the breeze remains, quietly whistling across the surface of the Rubik's cube from behind Vesper. While the calming sound of the wind serves to soothe the Zubat's nerves a little, she's still visibly on edge, especially compared to Li Feng's confident demeanour as she stands just a bit behind her Sustitute. The Seviper gives the Black Sludge wrapped up in her tail a little squeeze as the referee waves her flags to signal the end of the round.

Visitor Message (Oo)
seviper (black-sludge)
[Li Feng] F <Shed Skin>
Health: 86%
Energy: 85%
Status: Smug and confident.
Has a Substitute (6%).

Keldeo (Oo)
zubat
[Vesper] F <Inner Focus>
Health: 95%
Energy: 88%
Status: Very jittery.
Paralyzed (light). Tailwind is in effect (4 actions remaining).

Notes
-The type boosted by the cube was Bug type.
-The flavour text for Glare describes the move as 'locking gazes with the target and staring it down' but uh. Zubats don't have eyes, so it wasn't very effective and Zesper was only lightly paralyzed.
-Visitor Message attacks first next round.

Supersonic is a sound move, so it should have gone through Substitute, I think, unless it missed?

It's still not going to be as effective if it isn't directly aimed at Li Feng, though, I would think.

The flow from her fangs ends abruptly, and in front of her, the ooze starts to congeal into a long, Serviper-like shape. One end of the shape curls up sharply in the air to form a makeshift head, and Li Feng looks at her completed Substitute with some pride.

Vesper is distracted only momentarily as Li Feng creates her Substitute. She flies up as close to the Seviper as she can, doing her best to maneuver around the Substitute, which quickly darts forwards and does its best to obstruct her path. With an irritated clicking noise, Vesper decides this is as close as she's going to get, and screeches at the top of her lungs. The makeshift Seviper does nothing at all, looking blankly at Vesper, while behind them, Li Feng flinches and starts to shake her head violently.

The Seviper shuts her eyes tightly as Vesper's screech rebounds through her head, rattling her fangs and making her head throb. Opening her eyes, Li Feng slithers forwards with an angry hiss, intent on making Vesper pay, but stops in her tracks as the pain in her head comes back full force. She writhes around on the ground, trying to find something to bite into until the pain goes away, and settles for her Substitute's tail. The construct looks down at its creator, fangs fastened in its gooey tail blade, with dull surprise.

Vesper takes this opportunity to dive at full speed, straight towards Li Feng's face. Her wings start glowing with a faint dark aura, but before she can collide with Li Feng, the Seviper's Subsitute gets in the way and takes the brunt of the blow. The Zubat claws away a large amount of the purple substance but the Substitute still remains upright, albeit a lot less substantial than it looked before.

Li Feng looks a little better now, and slowly detaches herself from her Substitute's tail and draws herself upright. With an angry hiss, she whips around and slashes her tail blade out at Vesper with surprising speed, clearing the distance between them easily. Vesper, startled by the Seviper's sudden burst of speed, cries out in surprise as a shallow cut opens up on her chest, and the string holding the Black Sludge around her neck falls away. Before she can swoop down and reclaim it, Li Feng has already wrapped the pouch up in her tail, and has retreated behind her Substitute, making mocking hissing noises.

Vesper hesitates for a moment, before she begins to flap her wings even faster, starting to work up a light breeze. Even after the speed of her wings returns to normal the breeze remains, quietly whistling across the surface of the Rubik's cube from behind the Zubat. Vesper's feeling better, and a bit more confident now that the wind is in her favour. Across from her, Li Feng gives the Black Sludge wrapped up in her tail a little squeeze as she tries to ease her headache, and the referee waves her flags to signal the end of the round.

Visitor Message (Oo)
seviper (black-sludge)
[Li Feng] F <Shed Skin>
Health: 86%
Energy: 87%
Status: A bit out of it.
Has a Substitute (3%). Confused (moderate).

Keldeo (Oo)

Notes
-The type boosted by the cube was Bug type.
-Supersonic was successful, but slightly less powerful due to the Substitute standing in the way; Li Feng started with moderate rather than severe confusion.
-Li Feng hurt herself on the second action (3% damage taken by the Substitute).
-Visitor Message attacks first next round.

Well that didn't exactly go as planned, but we're not going to get discouraged that easily.

Li Feng, start with a Coil while that Substitute is still active. Next, give that Zubat a good Wring Out while it's still at high health. On your last turn, it's Payback time. If on the second or third turn she protects, use Coil again. If Wring Out fails on the second turn, use it on the third action instead.

Coil ~ Wring Out / Coil ~ Payback / Wring Out / Coil

Vesper, start by Snatching that Coil. Then, Fly up a good height, at least to 10.5 feet off the ground since Seviper is almost 9 feet long, so Li Feng can't reach you for Wring Out. If this doesn't take a full action, use Gust from midair to get rid of her Substitute. If she still has a Substitute on your last action, use Gust to get rid of it, but stay at least 10 feet off the ground while you're executing the attack. If she doesn't have a Substitute on the last action, dive-bomb her with a Zen Headbutt instead.

Snatch ~ Fly (up) / Gust (fly up) ~ Gust (stay up) / Zen Headbutt (fly down)

The light given off by the cube flashes once, then changes to a soft yellow colour as the referee raises her flags, and brings them down to signal the beginning of the round. Vesper starts to take on a dark grey aura, and her wingbeats slow down perceptibly, as if she is waiting for something. Li Feng hisses in suspicion. She couldn't help but feel like she was being baited into something, with the unnerving intensity of Vesper's focus on her.

Well, the Seviper wasn't going to attack anyways. She starts to coil in on herself, ready to take on a defensive stance, when her headache flares up suddenly and she lashes out, stiff as a plank. With a pained hiss, she thrashes around and once again finds her teeth sunk into her rather patchy Substitute's belly. The purple construct shakes violently as it tries to maintain its shape, then collapses into an inanimate puddle on the ground, Li Feng being left curled low to the ground with a mouthful of goo and a confused expression. The aura around Vesper starts to fade as she watches Li Feng's tantrum, and the intensity of her focus on the Seviper returns to normal. She makes a confused, almost put-out clicking noise.

This doesn't deter the Zubat at all, however, and she quickly recovers and flies higher into the air, the tailwind at her back speeding her ascent. She hovers above Li Feng's head, waiting high out of her reach. The Seviper glares up at Vesper and wonders if she could jump up and grab her opponent out of the air, when her head throbs again and causes her to writhe in pain. Li Feng bites painfully into her own tail in order to block out the pain, and tries to calm her throbbing head.

Vesper calmly looks down at her defenseless opponent, then begins to slow down her breathing and clear her mind, and the air around her head starts to shimmer with psychic energy. She takes a deep breath and pitches forwards, down towards her opponent. Fueled by gravity and the wind at her back, Vesper collides head on with Li Feng and sends the Seviper tumbling backwards with a surprised noise.

Li Feng slithers forwards to face Vesper with a wince, surprised that the tiny Zubat could manage to hit her that hard. And to her displeasure, she still looked to be in pretty good shape, with barely a scratch on her! Li Feng was going to fix that. In one quick motion, the Seviper lashes out and wraps Vesper up in her coils, ignoring the surprised high pitched sound that the Zubat makes. Li Feng squeezes her coils as tightly as possible, taking pleasure in the panicked screech that her opponent makes. After a few moments, she relaxes and lets Vesper escape from her grasp. Vesper flaps away madly, still shaking from the painful encounter. Across from her, Li Feng grips onto the Black Sludge tightly and hisses a taunt, as the referee waves her flags to signal the end of the round.

Approach Li Feng and worsen her confusion with Supersonic, steal your Black Sludge back with Thief, and make a 20% Substitute. If she protects on the first action, use Substitute, then Supersonic, then Thief. If she has a Substitute up when you would use Thief, or you're Taunted but were commanded to use a nondamaging move, use Zen Headbutt instead.

Supersonic / Substitute (20) ~ Thief / Supersonic / Zen Headbutt ~ Substitute (20) / Thief / Zen Headbutt

This confusion is garbage but it's not going to stop us yet. Don't let that Zubat's screeches get to you Li Feng!

Use Mimic (Zen Headbutt) to dish out some damage. On the second action, use Protect. On your last turn, use Mimic (Zen Headbutt) again.

Mimic (Zen Headbutt) ~ Protect ~ Mimic (Zen Headbutt)

Tailwind is in effect (1 action remaining).

The light of the cube flashes once and changes to a light grey colour as the round begins. Vesper, pushed forwards by the tailwind at her back, darts a bit closer to Li Feng and lets out a piercing screech at the top of her lungs. Li Feng hisses and shudders as the sound reverberates through her head. The painful sound in her head is at full volume again, and flares up painfully as she tries to think. She thrashes about on the ground, and once again sinks her teeth into her tail as she tries to offset the pain. And as Vesper looks proudly upon her incapacitated opponent, the tailwind at her back dies out.

Li Feng slowly unwinds from her hunched position, and shakes her head violently as she tries to clear the noise from it. She concentrates and tries to form a protective barrier, but this mental effort just makes the sound worse. She shuts her eyes tightly and bits down sharply on her tail again, doing her best to focus on anything but the painful throbbing in her head.

Vesper is left with a clear shot to get an attack in, and she takes it. The Zubat swoops in and slashes at Li Feng with the sharp tip of her wing, catching the Seviper by surprise and shaking her out of her reverie. Li Feng goes completely limp for a moment, and drops her stolen Black Sludge, which Vesper quickly scoops up. She slips her head through a loose loop of thread on the pouch, and chirps happily at having regained her item.

Li Feng is feeling a bit better now, and stretches her body out experimentally. The throbbing pain in her mind is still present, but she can definitely move freely for now, at least. She thinks back through the battle, to when Vesper hit her with an unusually charged headbutt, and wonders if she could do the same. The Seviper closes her eyes and takes a couple of deep breaths to calm herself, and tries to clear her mind. With an odd, focused expression, she slithers forwards slowly, then lashes out headfirst towards Vesper. They collide head on, and the Zubat is struck out of the air by the force of the blow. Li Feng opens her eyes, slightly surprised.

Vesper flaps back into the air, looking a bit ruffled. She beats her wings and manages to beat up a bit of dust from the surface of the Rubik's cube, which starts to glow slightly under her concentration. Vesper focuses intently on the dust cloud in front of her, and it starts to take on a rather familiar shape, forming a very solid, lively looking Zubat construct. The Substitute flaps up in front of Vesper, who gives it a slightly weary nod as they both turn to face Li Feng in unison.

god i hate confusion

Just Zen Headbutt thrice. Use Flamethrower on the third action if Vesper's sub is down.

Zen Headbutt ~ Zen Headbutt ~ Zen Headbutt / Flamethrower

I feed off your misery!

Anyway, Vesper, start with a Super Fang for some damage, then set up a Tailwind. Finally, Taunt Li Feng to prevent shenanigans next round.

Super Fang ~ Tailwind ~ Taunt

Format: 2v2 single
Style: Switch
DQ: 10 days
Damage Cap: 30%
Banned/Restricted Moves: OHKO moves, Direct recovery moves, Rest, Wish
Arena Description: An enormous black Rubik's cube is suspended in an endless void. A glowing light pours out of the cracks in its surface, radiating a strange kind of energy. Before each round, the color of the light changes randomly to a hue signifying one of the eighteen types. Any moves of this type are 1.5x effective.
ROUND 4

Visitor Message (OO)
seviper
[Li Feng] F <Shed Skin>
Health: 60%
Energy: 67%
Status: Very calm.
Confused (moderate).

Keldeo (OO)
zubat (black-sludge)
[Vesper] F <Inner Focus>
Health: 52%
Energy: 64%
Status: Starting to tire.
Has a Substitute (20%).

With a bright flash, the light of the cube changes to a deep blue-ish purple, and the next round begins. Li Feng closes her eyes and tries to clear her mind as she did earlier, and takes a few deep breaths. Moving instinctively, she charges forwards and leaps for Vesper, striking out head-first. Before she can make contact though, Vesper's dust cloud construct swoops down in the way and takes the brunt of the attack. Li Feng opens her eyes and hisses up at the Substitute, annoyed that she didn't get to hit her mark.

Vesper wastes no time waiting to counterattack, and she dives towards Li Feng with a high pitched cry. She cruelly sinks her fangs into the Seviper's neck, hanging on even as Li Feng screeches and thrashes about, trying to shake her off. With each second that Li Feng struggles to escape from the bite, Vesper only seems to bite down harder, until she finally mercifully lets go, and flaps backwards behind the protection of her Substitute. Li Feng is shaking with pain, and is starting to find it a bit difficult to keep herself upright.

Still, she does her best to push on through the pain, and once again she closes her eyes and clears her mind. Li Feng hisses quietly, and strikes out headfirst towards Vesper. The Zubat's dust Substitute leaps in the way once again, and prevents Li Feng from reaching her mark. Li Feng opens her eyes and looks carefully at the Substitute, which shakes violently as it tries to keep its form before dissolving into the air.

Vesper makes a disappointed noise as her Substitute gives up its form, but doesn't let that deter her. She starts to flap her wings and beat up a light breeze, then nods sharply as the wind continues even as her wingbeats slow down. She lets the wind carry her weight, and relaxes into it for a moment, before getting right back to work. Vesper shrieks loudly to catch Li Feng's attention, and then starts insulting every aspect about the Seviper she could think of. Li Feng hisses with rage, and slithers forwards to give her opponent a piece of her mind. She blindly lunges out towards Vesper.. and falls flat on her face in her rage. Li Feng screeches and digs her fangs deep into the ground in frustration and thrashes around for a few moments. When her head finally clears, she finds her fangs sunk too deep into the odd plastic surface to pull out easily, and has to painfully pry herself out of the ground.

Visitor Message (OO)
seviper
[Li Feng] F <Shed Skin>
Health: 27% (capped)
Energy: 55%
Status: Breathing hard and a bit embarassed.
Confused (mild). Taunted (2 more actions).

Keldeo (OO)
zubat (black-sludge)
[Vesper] F <Inner Focus>
Health: 55%
Energy: 45%
Status: Flagging, but proud of herself.
Tailwind is in effect (3 more actions).

Notes
-The type boosted by the cube was Dragon type.
-Vesper hit the damage cap on the first action.
-Li Feng destroyed Vesper's Substitute on the second action.
-Li Feng hurt herself on the third action (self inflicted damage bypasses the damage cap).
-Keldeo attacks first next round.

Vesper should have 55% health, I think, since she has the Black Sludge and Li Feng didn't actually hurt her.

Anyway, Vesper, you can do this. Stay strong.
