Arena: Meteor Falls

A grotto in Hoenn known for its peculiar coloration, running waters, and huge craters that hint at a meteoric origin. It is inhabited primarily by Zubat, Golbat, Solrock, and Lunatone, although there may be Clefairy timidly lurking the area and even Druddigon or Deino hiding belowground. Bagon also inhabit this place, but they nest only at the very bottom of the grotto, making encounters with them rare. The wildlife might retaliate if angered, or might just make some really good meatshields in an emergency.

The battle will begin in the platform across the bridge, in which the player confronts an enemy team during their first visit to the location (the spot in this map in which there are people).

Additional Rules: Sleep will only be successfully induced once against each team (arena effects aren't affected by this restriction and don't trigger it).

This is a singles match. I seem to have forgotten to put that in, whoops.

Also, Daremyth out.

MF, would you mind if I used Preveza, but as a Seadra? She got the experience necessary to evolve a couple of days ago, but as it was from a pre-DB battle I had to wait for Zhorken to manually add it in before I could evolve her. This battle popped up before then, but she is a Seadra now.

This is also assuming I can send out a Pokemon into the water to start.

Default Re: Metallica Fanboy vs Eta Carinae

Sure, we can make it a Seadra for the match. We haven't started yet, so it's not an issue. And yes, you can send out into the water. Also, for the record, you might want to change the profile link in your user information to reflect the username change, although the ASBdb seems to be capable of redirecting it anyhow.

Anyways, I may as well put out commands. We have to watch out for the fact that they can run circles around us, but fortunately, there's not much they can hit us with if they stay on the water. Let's open with a Light Screen, that'll further ruin their possibilities. And while you're at it, hustle down the ledge by the stairs -- we can use the starting spot of the arena as cover, so they won't be able to hit us with much of anything without coming out of the water.

From there, we attack with Hyper Voice, which shouldn't have any problem hitting even while we're in cover. It'll also annoy the holy beemjesus out of the wildlife, which is always a plus in my book. If the Seadra gets closer, let's try our luck with Zap Cannon, and bonus points if you can get her while she's approaching rather than actively avoiding our attacks. If the move you're intending to use is Disabled, Uproar for an action instead.

Light Screen ~ Hyper Voice/Zap Cannon/Uproar (1 action) ~ Hyper Voice/Zap Cannon/Uproar (1 action)

Well Preveza, lead off with a Focus Energy to hopefully take advantage of that ability of yours. Then let's hit hard with a couple of Hydro Pumps. If Daremyth's out of reach of a Hydro Pump, try and throw a Muddy Water at her.

Well, that leaves my strategy largely unchanged. Put your Light Screen up first, then dive behind cover and attack with Hyper Voice It's not going to fully stop the Muddy Water attacks, but it should at the very least make them harder to land and weaker on impact.

Arena: Meteor Falls
Here to distress the Meteor Falls wildlife and tourists today are Metallica Fanboy and Eta Carinae. The two Trainers meet on the bridge nearest to the mouth of the cave and the referee joins them shortly, mildly distracted by the roaring waterfall barely a hundred meters away. The rules of the battle are simple enough and need no explanation, so the Trainers just get right to sending out their Pokemon. MF sends out Daremyth the Igglybuff, the Moon Stone around her neck glowing faintly, and after a moment of consideration, Eta Carinae sends out Preveza the Horsea into the water not too far from shore.

The Trainers and referee simultaneously realize they should probably head down the stairs so Preveza and Daremyth are actually at the same elevation. Preveza trills and plays in the water below as the Trainers grab their stuff and start to move, when suddenly the Horsea goes still and starts to glow a brilliant white. Everyone stops and watches as Preveza's glowing silhouette starts to change shape, then with a bright flash, fades to reveal her new, pointier form. The newly evolved Seadra trills happily and ducks in and out of the water, testing her new fins and improved speed.

The referee allows Preveza a minute to get used to her new form, but they're here for a reason, and it's time to get the battle started. She calls for everyone's attention, then waves her flags to start the battle!

Preveza stops splashing around and goes still, steadying her breathing and heightening her focus on the battle ahead. She bobs silently in the water and watches carefully as Daremyth puts her stubby hands up and screws her eyes shut in concentration, and focuses energy into a semi transparent wall of pale yellow light.

Daremyth's eyes open to see Preveza inhaling deeply, then blasting a powerful jet of water at her. The wall of light helps lessen some of the water pressure, but Preveza's incredible aim means that most of the water is still going straight at Daremyth's face. The Igglybuff makes an uncomfortable noise and tries to scramble away, the Light Screen at her back slowly drifting backwards to keep up with its creator. She leaps down the nearby set of stairs to the lower level of the cavern, and glares vaguely in the direction of the Seadra. Then the Igglybuff takes a deep breath, and screams at the top of her lungs. A level up, Preveza and the Trainers all wince as Daremyth's voice echoes around the cavern, rivalling the volume of the waterfall, even. A couple of Zubats drop down from some stalactites on the ceiling and flap away, screeching at the sudden disturbance.

Preveza shudders and narrows her eyes, scanning the edge of the rocky ledge for a sign of the Igglybuff and finding none. She can't directly hit her, then. The Seadra dives to the bottom of the pool and dredges up some dirty water with her fins, then rises to the surface, the murky water rising with her. With a cry, she pops out of the water at the surface and sends the water over the ledge, hoping to catch Daremyth with the size of the wave. Below, Daremyth looks up just in time to see the dark water pouring over the edge and down the stairs towards her. She barely has time to get the Light Screen up over her head as it comes crashing down on her, and she's incredibly glad for the protection of the light.

As the water slowly runs off into the cracks in the ground, Daremyth gets back to her feet and screams her fury vaguely in Preveza's direction. It doesn't seem as loud her last scream, but it still sets Preveza's head ringing and earns Daremyth a couple of groans from the Trainers. The Igglybuff can't exactly see the effects of her attack, but decides with a shrug that it was probably pretty effective, from what she can hear of the reactions on the upper level.

Notes
-Light Screen is described as taking a lot of concentration to use, so Daremyth moved to take cover during the second action instead. And since Preveza is faster, she got a Hydro Pump off before Daremyth managed to hide.
-those crits though
-Muddy Water was treated as a multi-target attack (BP x0.75) as Preveza didn't know exactly where Daremyth was.
-MF commands first next.

Hmmm. Not to be repetitive or anything, but I'll just keep my aces up my sleeve for this round, and keep making some noise.

If Echoed Voice is disabled, we'll Work Up and renew the Light Screen.

Bide ~ Bide ~ Bide

Preveza closes her eyes and focuses, and when she opens them again they're glowing slightly red. She floats calmly at the surface of the water, and spreads her fins out as if to make herself a bigger target. Daremyth, meanwhile, can't see what Preveza's doing, but from the lack of water crashing down on her head, it seems like she must be doing.. nothing? Almost cautiously, the Igglybuff yells wordlessly up at the ceiling. There's a delay of a second or so, but her voice comes echoing back, oddly loud and clear.

Preveza doesn't react to Daremyth's voice at all. The only sign that she's still alert is a sudden flicker in the red light of her eyes, but otherwise, the Seadra seems to be quite deaf to the world. Daremyth again only notes the lack of water crashing down on her, or weird energy beams flying overhead, which she takes as a good sign. Before the sound of her last shout can fade away, she raises her voice again and adds another cry to the cacophony. The resulting sound is pretty loud, and Preveza can't completely ignore it now. Her snout twitches and her eyes flash again, glowing much brighter now.

Daremyth clears her throat and gets ready to shout to the sky one more time. At this point she's getting a bit tired of just yelling, but as long as she's not really getting hurt, she can't really complain, she figures. The Igglybuff shouts up at the ceiling again, and as the swirling noise echoes back at her and through the cave, she has the pleasure of seeing a pair of Golbats drop angrily from the ceiling and flap off, shrieking. Preveza's reaction is much the same; she thrashes violently as the chaotic, painfully loud noise echoes through her head, giving her a throbbing headache. She wants nothing more than to actually hit Daremyth with something, but at this point, she's having trouble even getting her eyes to focus.

The Seadra shudders and closes her eyes, then snaps her head vaguely in Daremyth's direction with the last shreds of control she has left. Then, with a faint cry, Preveza launches herself out of the water at top speed.. and lands unceremoniously on her side, a few feet away from the water's edge. Her eyes snap open and as she flops about on the rocky ground, she is extremely aware of the fact that Daremyth is nowhere to be seen, and she's kind of stranded away from the water now. Eta Carinae gives the Seadra a helpful shove back towards the water's edge as the referee waves her flags to signal the end of the round.

Is that really how Bide works? The db calls it a "massive wave of pure force", that doesn't seem to imply physical movement from the Pokemon using it (as well, the description says it releases the energy at the end of the round, which I thought would mean after the final Hyper Voice, but if the attack isn't going to work anyways that doesn't really matter).

Bide's also a contact move, so yeah, it wasn't gonna hit anyways. (And oops, I was thinking of the games, where Bide can be released before the opponent moves? I'll fix that in a bit, but the only difference to the round is Preveza's going to lose a chunk of energy.)

I suppose it does say it's a contact move, right there out in the open on the db. Well, a slight handicap never hurt anybody. Let's keep on keeping on, Preveza!

Climb that Waterfall, why don't you? Hopefully the high ground will help you out a bit. Next up, let's try and cause some chaos. Twister if you can see Daremyth, try and push her into the water. If she's still out of your sights, throw another Muddy Water at her.

Last action should be fun. If you pushed her into the water last action, Surf down that Waterfall to get to her (don't give me that look, of course it will work). If she's still on land and you can see her, Hydro Pump. If she's on land and invisible, Muddy Water again.

Hmmm, that'll force me to pull the ace I've been holding onto earlier than I expected. Daremyth, introduce them to our OG -- Obtuse Gravity. We won't be fast enough to stop them climbing up, but everything else they're planning should just fall apart. They might not even stay over the waterfall if they can't swim against the undertow while they're getting pulled.

Unfortunately, pulling this beautiful trick off while they're in the water rather than trying to attack us on the surface leaves one issue -- that, instead of making them dead meat for all of our attacks, it puts an entire column of water between them and us (although that also messes with much of their attack options, specially in that they'll be working against the intensified gravity to hit us while we'll be working with it). Not that we're in a massive hustle to deal damage right now, anyway, what with the massive advantage we've carved, but we've got to keep moving forward. Let's try out a couple things that might get through their buffer -- lead with a Shadow Ball that might go through the water, and see if the gravity will help you put more force into it; then, we strike with Psychic, which will be harder to pull off all around, but maybe we can make it hurt harder if you do manage to land it properly.

If that Seadra has ended up someplace where you can't aim at her properly -- we'll swap out the Shadow Ball for a renewal of our Light Screen, but Psychic will probably not rely on whether we can find her, so that, we can stick with.

Gravity ~ Shadow Ball/Light Screen ~ Psychic

Pumped up.
Waterfall ~ Twister / Muddy Water ~ Surf / Hydro Pump / Muddy Water

Preveza turns around and faces the great waterfall behind her, gathering up her strength with a quiet hiss. She rushes forwards and leaps headlong into the waterfall, then starts to ascend the huge column of water with a strained look on her face. The Seadra reaches the top level of the waterfall with some effort, surveying the levels below her with a critical eye. There's a conspicuous spot of pink sitting at the bottom of the stairs two levels down, and Preveza manages to catch Daremyth's eye with a little flick of her fins. The Igglybuff is a bit taken aback as she realizes her cover is completely gone, but quickly composes herself with a little frown. This shouldn't be too difficult to fix, she decides, and her eyes start to glow an odd, unnatural red.

Preveza keeps her eyes fixed on Daremyth with a sense of pride, slowly catching her breath and getting ready for her next attack, when suddenly everything goes a bit.. wonky. Preveza squeaks in surprise as she suddenly feels heavier, or like suddenly a great force is weighing her down. She slips under the surface of the water, thrashing about in panic as she loses control of her buoyancy and sinks. In her panic, she can't quite fight the strong underwater current and is swept backwards towards the waterfall. The Seadra realizes what's happening a moment too late, and with a panicked trill, she goes over the edge and falls the fair distance down to the ground level.

Daremyth watches the blue spot follow the waterfall down into the pool below, but if there's a splash, the roar of the waterfall's covered it up. Daremyth wants to go see if she can spot Preveza in the water up ahead, but as she begins to struggle up the stairs (a task made more difficult by the increased gravity), there's a low rumbling sound that makes the Igglybuff pause. From the pool in front of her, a wave of dark, murky water suddenly rises up and surges down the stairs, taking Daremyth completely by surprise and washing her backwards. She sputters and tries to clear the mud and specks of dirt of out her eyes. Well, it seems like Preveza recovered from that fall fairly quickly, then.

Daremyth gets to her feet and turns back to the staircase in front of her with a sigh. Climbing it would normally be a struggle anyways, given her small size and stubby limbs, but with the intensified gravity and her sudden unwieldy weight, it's going to be even more difficult. She does her best to pull herself up the carved stone stairs anyways though, but when she reaches the top she's disappointed to see that Preveza is completely invisible under the water, if she was there at all? The mud dredged up from the Muddy Water attack earlier was making it difficult to see to the bottom of the pool and spot her opponent. Daremyth looks around warily, scanning the water around her and even up at the waterfall above her, just in case, then decides to play it safe. She waves her stubby arms around and a familiar wall of pale yellow light starts to form in front of her, giving her an added layer of defense.

Daremyth gets to put her Light Screen to work almost immediately, when with a low rumble, another wave of dark water surges up from the pool in front of her and washes across the cavern floor in front of her. The Light Screen helps divert some of the wave's force, but to her disgust, Daremyth finds herself with a faceful of silt anyways, the gross sludge getting into her eyes and leaving a horrible taste in her mouth. She spits it out angrily, then closes her eyes and switches to her second sight. She reaches out to find Preveza's mental signature and makes a little noise of approval as she finds the Seadra a few meters down, floating quietly near the bottom of the pool. Daremyth presses into Preveza's mind, hitting a bunch of random nerves and generally making a psychic mess of the place. Preveza trills in pain and curls into herself as Daremyth retreats back into her own mind, and tries to nurse her growing headache. This battle wasn't going her way at all.

Notes
-Gravity is intensified (2 actions remaining).

-Alright I feel the need to point out that I've never taken physics so I'm not entirely sure what this """gravity""" thingy is or how it works. But like. An increase in gravity means everything effectively gets heavier, right. So; when Gravity was used, Preveza sank under the water and ended up getting pulled back down the waterfall (I had her take 1/2 the damage of a Waterfall). Once she got to the bottom, her increased weight made her stay a few metres below the surface around Dive's depth. Since she couldn't see Daremyth, that qualified as 'out of [her] sights' and 'invisible', so she used Muddy Water for the next two actions.
-Daremyth climbed up the stairs (this took 3% energy due to Daremyth being like 5 inches tall, and the gravity making it hard to move) to try to spot Preveza in the water, but it wasn't very clear due to Muddy Water being used and she just put up a Light Screen instead.
-Preveza's second Muddy Water reduced Daremyth's accuracy one stage.
-Daremyth used the mental intrusion variant of Psychic on the third action, but it took an extra 1% energy to actually find Preveza's mind and mentally intrude as Daremyth wasn't completely clear on her location.

-my search history is like 'what happens if gravity increases underwater' and scuba diving forums
-Metallica Fanboy commands first.

Mhmmm. Good going so far. While we're ahead, let's have some fun and give the referee more homework, hmm?

You've got Light Screen protection, you're close enough to the water's edge to get there without major trouble, and gravity will be working with you as you drop stuff on the river. So how about we drop... the temperature? Blow some Icy Wind down there -- and perhaps, in time, we can freeze the water, either above the surface or entirely. Is this a good idea? Probably not, but we have a huge lead and it'll be fun if something happens. Plus, if it works, there's not a way in hell they can help if it does work, since they're trapped underwater. But if they escape the water somehow, nail'em with Zap Cannon.

Alright Preveza, no more playing around. You can send a wave up there just fine and dandy, right? Well bring yourself with it next time, give 'em a Surf. And don't you start whining about not being able to breathe up there. We're running with this.

Next up, Disable, as she should have used Zap Cannon. Finish with, hmm, Giga Impact..? That's assuming you can reach her with a physical move by flailing or something. I don't want a recharge action afterwards please. If she for some reason didn't use Zap Cannon on action one, flip around actions 2 and 3.

If you fail to get out of the water on the first action you're off the team, I don't even know anymore, try and get above the surface and Mimic those Hyper Voices from before.

Surf ~ Disable/Giga Impact/Mimic (Hyper Voice) ~ Giga Impact/Disable/Hyper Voice
