Negrek vs Mawile

Although designed to be a state-of-the-art battling facility and located at the very heart of ASB Central's battle district, ASB Central Stadium actually sees very little use. Most battlers prefer the infinite variety of the holodrome's simulated arenas to the basic, if impressive, stadium field, and official tournaments tend to feature tours of other regions rather than a homefield brawl. There is one advantage to the stadium, though--its proximity to the holodrome grants it access to a full range of simulation options, allowing trainers to trick out their team to whatever extent they like before battling.

There's nothing much to say about the battlefield: it's a large, rectangular arena covered in astroturf. A circular pool will open in its center if a Pokémon requiring water to move around in is sent out. In this arena, Pokémon can summon absolutely anything they need for their attacks: tidal waves, boulders, and so on are in ready supply.

Other: This battle takes place between a referee and one other member. The referee will use their own team of Pokémon, but the other battler may choose either to use their own team OR choose any six nonlegendary Pokémon with any items and abilities to use for this fight. In the former case, their Pokémon gain experience as normal. In the latter case, they may choose to apply the experience earned by their rental Pokémon, minus one point, to their team in any manner that they choose.

The prizes for this battle are $20 to the winner, $10 to the loser, and $15 to the referee. This battle does not fill a battle slot for the mentoring referee.

Let's go, Windows 99! I've been waiting for the chance to use you, and a ref test battle seems like the perfect opportunity to play around with your moveset.

Default Re: Negrek vs. Mawile

I'll use Phlogiston, then.

Start with a power-up punch, then assist to get a little help from your friends. Finish off by trapping Windows 99 with a fire spin!

If there are clones on the field, switch to a widespread heat wave.

Power-Up Punch / Heat Wave ~ Assist / Heat Wave ~ Fire Spin / Heat Wave

Let's start off with a Conversion to ghost-type in order to negate the Power-up Punch's damage and any other fighting-type moves. Next, let's use Nasty Plot while she uses Assist. Then just fire off a Tri-Attack and hope we get lucky with that decent chance of inflicting a status.

ASB Central Stadium is rather quiet, but it would not stay that way for long. Several battles had been arranged to test out the new referees, but this one happened to be the first of the morning. Aside from the few tired-looking ASB officials who had arrived to judge the referees, only a small crowd of spectators had gathered. The two trainers step out into their respective places, looking alive and eager to battle. The referee clutches his whistle in his hands nervously and blows on it to signify the beginning of the match.

Mawile is the first to send out his Pokémon. His Porygon-Z appears in a burst of light as its trainer releases it from its Poké Ball. The Porygon-Z fidgets as it hovers in place, waiting for its opponent to appear. Negrek then selects one of his own Poké Balls and gives it a good toss onto the field. A small ape-like creature appears, dancing happily from one foot to the other and throwing a strange purple lump back and forth between her hands.


ROUND 1 - START

Negrek (OO)
chimchar (eviolite)
[Phlogiston] F <Blaze>
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Status: Eager to battle.
Power-Up Punch / Heat Wave ~ Assist / Heat Wave ~ Fire Spin / Heat Wave

Mawile (OO)
porygon-z
[Windows 99] <Download>
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Status: Booted up and ready for action.
Conversion (to ghost-type) ~ Nasty Plot ~ Tri-Attack

Windows 99 focuses its gaze on Phlogiston and starts to make a whirring and beeping noise like an old dial-up modem. The Chimchar covers its ears to block out the annoying noise as Windows 99 re-arranges its drivers to give itself a slight Special Attack boost. Feeling even more prepared now, the Porygon-Z starts to watch its opponent’s every move.

Phlogiston readies herself for a powerful strike and dashes at her opponent, fist at the ready. Before she can hit her target, however, the Porygon-Z starts to reconstruct itself into something a bit more… immaterial. Phlogiston’s punch sails right through Windows 99, and she flops onto the ground behind it. Phlogiston picks herself up and turns around, bewildered, to see that her attack had no effect on her opponent.

Windows 99, surrounded by a ghostly aura, smirks at the Chimchar and begins to think about its next move. It concentrates on the opponent’s weaknesses and starts to think about its own strengths. An idea occurs to the Porygon-Z, and as this happens, Windows 99 starts to feel even stronger. It doesn’t have too much time to think over the scheme, though, as Phlogiston is already preparing her next attack. She starts to think about her teammate Mandarb, and how she would stare her opponents down to stop them from escaping. Phlogiston tightens her gaze and gives the Porygon-Z a rather sinister look. Windows 99 finds the Chimchar's glare rather odd, but doesn't seem the least bit affected by it. Phlogiston stomps on the ground in frustration. Once again, it doesn't look like her attack had the effect she intended.

While its opponent was busy pouting, Windows 99 takes a moment to focus its energy into creating a powerful attack. Windows 99 charges up and releases a triangular beam of intertwined elements. Electric, fire, and ice energy hits Phlogiston, sending her flying. Windows 99 twirls around while hovering, feeling pretty confident in its strengths now. However, the Chimchar gets on her feet quickly, ready to retaliate in kind. Phlogiston takes a deep breath, and then blows out a whirlwind of searing flames. The flames encircle Windows 99, scorching the Porygon-Z while making it difficult for it to escape. Porygon-Z flails about in a panic as the referee blows his whistle to signal the end of the round.

ROUND 1 - END

Negrek (OO)
chimchar (eviolite)
[Phlogiston] F <Blaze>
Health: 91%
Energy: 91%
Status: Ready to give an angry call to tech support.
Power-Up Punch ~ Assist (Mean Look) ~ Fire Spin

Mawile (OO)
porygon-Z

Health: 95%
Energy: 92%
Status: Too hot. Hot damn. Make a Dragonite wanna retire man.
+3 Special Attack. Trapped by Fire Spin (4 more actions).
Conversion (to ghost-type) ~ Nasty Plot ~ Tri-Attack

Notes
-Chimchar’s base Defense and Special Defense are equal, so Download raised Windows 99’s Special Attack stat by one stage.
-Power-Up Punch did nothing because Windows 99 was immune.
-For choosing an Assist move, I rolled to pick a Pokémon in Negrek’s active party, and then rolled to pick one of that Pokémon’s moves. The Pokémon chosen was Mandarb the Absol and the move chosen was Mean Look.
-Mean Look did nothing because Windows 99 was immune.

Calculations
Tri-attack’s damage was: 8% base + 3% boosts – 2% eviolite reduction = 9% final damage. Not a critical hit. No added effect.
Fire Spin’s damage was: 3.5% base + 0.875% STAB = 4% final damage. Not a critical hit.

Phlogiston’s health = 100% – 9% (Tri Attack) = 91%
Phlogiston’s energy = 100% – 3% (Power-up Punch) – 5% (Mean Look) – 1% (Fire Spin) = 91%

Windows 99’s health = 100% – 4% (Fire Spin) – 1% (residual Fire Spin damage) = 95%
Windows 99’s energy = 100% – 2% (Conversion) – 2% (Nasty Plot) – 4% (Tri Attack) = 92%

Mawile commands first next round.

...good job, RNG. You foiled my plan to get out of a measly 1% damage per turn.

BUT OH WELL. Let's start off with a Rain Dance to make any fire attacks she might use weaker than normal. Then let's take advantage of all this rain and hit her with Thunder twice. If you happen to be Tormented, use Charge Beam instead of that first Thunder. During the last two actions, if she Protects or you otherwise can't hit her, then just use a Defense Curl.

Rain Dance ~ Thunder/Charge Beam/Defense Curl ~ Thunder/Defense Curl

@Mawile: Generally speaking you should wait for the ref tester's response before posting commands in a test battle, since they might request edits to the previous reffing, and those edits might affect the orders you want to give. Like in this case, I'd imagine.

@VM: Your battle description is good; no complaints there. I thought you did a nice job with conversion in particular--nice play on porygon-Z's digital nature and the "Windows 99" name.

Ghost-types are not affected by mean look and not trapped by effects like fire spin. They take damage for as long as they remain in the trap attack's area, but they can leave at any time.

Tri attack's base energy cost is wrong in the DB at the moment. If you follow the Attack and Energy guide, you should be able to figure out its real cost. Also, attacks like assist, metronome, and so on, which call another attack, cost a little energy of their own to use (1% is fine). So mean look should be at 5% energy.

Please include the randomizer rolls that go with your calculations. Thanks for detailing how you handled assist, though.

There were some surprising interactions that came up this round, but for the most part you handled it fine. Just some minor edits and you're good to go.

Sorry about that. Would it be okay if I were to wait until the reffing was updated and then reissue my commands? Or should I just leave them as-is?

That turned out pretty nicely, Windows 99. This is exactly why I love Glost-types so much. Start by moving out of the area where the Fire Spin is and then let's just keep Tri-Attacking her until we inflict a status. Once that happens, let's switch to Shadow Ball.

If you find yourself Tormented, then use whichever move you didn't just use (so Shadow Ball if you just Tri-Attacked and Tri-Attack if you just used Shadow Ball).

move away from the trap's area, then Tri-Attack ~ Tri-Attack/Shadow Ball ~ Tri-Attack/Shadow Ball

All right, Phlogiston. Let's begin with the biggest substitute you can make, then follow it up with a flamethrower and a toxic. On the off-chance that you end up frozen (look who's tempting fate), use flame wheel to get out of it.

Substitute (25%) / Flame Wheel ~ Flamethrower / Flame Wheel ~ Toxic / Flame Wheel

Phlogiston stares gleefully at the fiery prison she has created for Windows 99. A few moments pass, and the flames start to fizzle out. That’s when the Chimchar realizes that her prisoner has… vanished. Phlogiston stares at the spot where the Porygon-Z was hovering only moments ago, when suddenly she is sent flying forward by a beam of energy. The Chimchar, having landed on her face, turns around to see her ghostly enemy laughing to itself.

By now, Phlogiston is fuming. She digs deep from within inside herself, and starts to cough out a fiery liquid. Imbued with the Phlogiston’s life energy, the liquid begins to congeal into the form of a Chimchar. Phlogiston takes a moment to admire her semi-molten doppelganger, and then turns to focus her attention on Windows 99, who is already preparing another attack. The Porygon-Z lets loose another triangular beam of energy, which goes flying towards Phlogiston. This time, however, the Chimchar’s substitute jerks forward, putting itself directly between Phlogiston and the beam. After intercepting the attack, the substitute looks somewhat weaker, but is still left standing.

The Chimchar is relieved to have avoided her opponent’s attack. She takes a minute to concentrate and breathe in deeply, and then lets forth a huge burst of fire. The flames travel in a line and hit Windows 99 directly, causing it to tumble backwards while crying out in pain. The judges on the sidelines, who had been mostly unfazed up to this point, begin to look impressed. Phlogiston was feeling a bit more confident now that she had their attention.

Outraged by this, Windows 99 charges up another Tri Attack, and sends the beam rushing towards her opponent. Once again, Phlogiston’s substitute intercepts the attack, leaving the Chimchar unscathed. The substitute is on the verge of collapsing now, but it is still ready to take another hit for its creator. Phlogiston then closes her eyes, and builds up a blob of toxins in her mouth. She then runs forward until she is about ten feet away from the Porygon-Z, and spits the horrible mix of toxins right into its face. Windows 99 yells out once more, as the fluids start to burn. Temporarily blinded by the poison in its eyes, Windows 99 thrashes about angrily. As this happens, the referee blows on his whistle to indicate the end of the round.

ROUND 2 - END

Negrek (OO)

+3 Special Attack. Severely poisoned (1% damage this round).

Notes
-The largest Substitute that Phlogiston can make is 20%, not 25%. I’m not sure if that was a typo or Negrek testing me.
-No status could be inflicted on the substitute, so Windows 99 continuted using Tri Attack.
-Toxic did 1% damage to Windows 99 this round.

Calculations
ACTION ONE

Windows 99’s command: Tri Attack
Energy: 4%
Damage: 8% base + 3% boosts – 2% eviolite reduction = 9% final damage
Extra Effect: 20% --> Roll: (54/100) --> No effect
Critical: 10% --> Roll: (83/100) --> No crit

Phlogiston’s command: Substitute (large)
Energy: 10%
Health cost: 20%

Action one results:

Windows 99
95 health
88 energy

Phlogiston
62 health
81 energy

Phlogiston’s substitute
20 health

ACTION TWO

Windows 99’s command: Tri Attack
Energy: 4%
Damage: 8% base + 3% boosts – 2% eviolite reduction = 9% final damage
Critical: 10% --> Roll: (88/100) --> No crit

Phlogiston’s command: Flamethrower
Energy: 5% -1% STAB = 4%
Damage: 9% base + 2.25% STAB = 11% final damage
Extra effect: 10% --> Roll: (59/100) --> No effect
Critical: 10% --> Roll: (94/100) --> No crit

Action two results:

Windows 99
84 health
84 energy

Phlogiston
62 health
77 energy

Phlogiston’s substitute
11 health

ACTION THREE

Windows 99’s command: Tri Attack
Energy: 4%
Damage: 8% base + 3% boosts – 2% eviolite reduction = 9% final damage
Critical: 10% --> Roll: (72/100) --> No crit

Phlogiston’s command: Toxic
Energy: 4%
Accuracy: 90% --> Roll: (78/100) --> Success

Action three results:

Windows 99
83 health
80 energy

Phlogiston
62 health
73 energy

Phlogiston’s substitute
2 health

END OF ROUND

Negrek commands first next round.

Default Re: Negrek vs. Mawile

Minor nitpick, but the fire spin should keep going for as long as it normally would, even after Windows 99 leaves; it's not totally clear from your description, but it sounds like the attack stops after the first action. Other than that, looks good! And thank you for including your effect rolls. I think we're fine to move on.

Okay, start off with taunt, then flamethrower twice. If Windows 99 protects, chill instead, and switch to heat wave if there are clones.

Taunt / Chill ~ Flamethrower / Heat Wave / Chill x 2

Phlogiston seems determined to further aggravate her opponent. She looks at the Porygon-Z straight in the eyes and starts dancing back and forth while jeering insults at it. However, Windows 99, who had regained its composure somewhat and was able to see again, already has a plan. The Porygon-Z concentrates and hovers in place as its body begins to shimmer with a mirror-like coating. As the little Chimchar dances while throwing insults at her opponent, she can only see her own reflection, hopping back and forth and taunting her. Was she… mocking herself? The spectators laugh at the foolish display in front of them, and Phlogiston stops her dance, embarrassed. That embarrassment quickly turns to anger as she realizes what the Porygon-Z had done. She wouldn’t let her opponent get away with making a monkey out of her!

Windows 99, who had been giggling along with the crowd, returns to her previous ghostly appearance and charges up for an attack. The electricity builds within Windows 99, and then is released as a shining beam towards Phlogiston. Before the attack can make impact, however, Phlogiston’s substitute makes one final sacrifice, propelling itself towards the beam. The substitute absorbs the electricity, and then bursts in a flash of light. Windows 99, who is feeling stronger now that its body was surging with electricity, feels glad to have finally finished off the doppelganger.

Phlogiston, however, is not so happy. Her anger wells up inside of her, and is released in the form of a river of flames. Windows 99 cries out as the fire engulfs it. Even after the flames die down, the Porygon-Z can feel a lingering pain from the attack, and notices the burns all over its body. Windows 99 tries to move but this causes it to wince in pain. Instead, it decides to remain perfectly still as it uses all of its electric power to generate a massive bolt of electricity. No longer protected by her substitute, Phlogiston is hit with the full force of the Thunderbolt, causing her to fly backwards and land on her back. The Chimchar tries to muster up all her strength for a counter-attack, but all she can do is lie on the ground, twitching, as her paralyzed muscles refuse to cooperate. The referee then blows his whistle, bringing the round to a close.

Default Re: Negrek vs. Mawile

Be careful about switching tenses in your prose. For example, the first sentence of your first paragraph is in present tense. Then you slip into past tense for the next four sentences before switching back to present at the end of the paragraph. You do a fine job of describing the actions that go on during the battle as usual, though.

"Make a monkey out of her" oh yes very nice. ;)

The burn only should have done two damage to Windows99, since it was only active for two actions. I would personally charge 4% for magic coat, but since it's listed at 3% in the database, it makes sense that you'd use that value.

It would be nice if you could include where you subtracted health for status conditions; just makes it easier to follow along with your calcs.

Longish post, but it's just minor edits; feel free to command whenever, Mawile.

That's frustrating. I don't typically write in present tense, and so I keep defaulting to past tense, and have to catch myself every time. I must have not caught it there.

The Damage & Energy guide just states that burn does "3% damage per round". Would you rather me treat that as 1% per action?

Yeah, writing in the present tense gets some getting used to, but it'll come naturally after a while. You can write your reffings in past tense if you'd prefer, though.

Eh, I guess it's not specified, but usually I treat all status effects per action rather than per round. Otherwise you could do something like refresh on the action and take no damage at all that round, which seems silly to me.
