Arena Description:

Outside the Battle Arena

The battle takes place right outside the Battle Frontier’s Battle Arena facility, out in the open air. The immediate area is covered in nicely manicured grass and a few flowers. The Arena building itself is surrounded on three sides by water and a small pond sits on the other side of the battlers, so water moves can be used and Water-types that need to swim can do so. The battlers cannot move away from the immediate area, so heading towards the plaza or another facility is forbidden.

Since this match is happening so close to the Arena, it seems such a shame not to follow Greta’s rules… or, at least, a variation on them. As such, both battlers will send out their Pokémon and attack for three battle rounds (a total of 9 attacks per Pokémon) before the ref calls a halt. After the three rounds both Pokémon are recalled and unable to continue in the current battle, and their current health, energy and status are noted for later. Both trainers will then send out their next Pokémon and continue for the next three rounds. At the end (which should be nine total rounds), the health and energy of all Pokémon is totaled and whichever trainer has the highest score wins.

The following rules also apply:

-If a Pokémon has fainted, either due to HP loss OR energy loss, the battle stops right where it is (even if it has not yet been three rounds) and both Pokémon are recalled. Fainted Pokémon DO still count toward the final score, but as either their health or their energy is at 0% they won’t add anywhere near as much.

-If, at the end of the three rounds, a battler is afflicted with a status condition, that condition detracts from their final score as follows:

Paralyzed, Burned, Confused: -10 points
Poisoned, Attracted: -15 points
Asleep, Frozen: -20 points
If the Pokémon has more than one status condition, only the first one they were afflicted with detracts full points; all others afterwards only detract five, no matter what they are.

Stat boosts add one point per level boosted. Stat reductions subtract one point per level dropped.

Let's go, bundle of cute warm fluff! She doesn't have a name yet, so for now you can just call her Jackie, after the person who gave her to me.

Thanks a bunch Meursault! Take it easy -- don't stress yourself out. bundle of cute warm fluff loves you.

Hey thanks Meursault! Glad to see you back in the game :)

Let's go Lady Ouroboros!

HONK

Alright m'Lady, we'll go with Bulldoze to start, then Acid Spray and finally, Sludge Bomb! Default to Earthquake if they have clones, a Substitute, or hide underground. Go for Coil if they Protect or Bide, or they're too far for you to hit them with any move.

Bulldoze / Earthquake / Coil ~ Acid Spray / Earthquake / Coil ~ Sludge Bomb / Earthquake / Coil

A medium Substitute should be enough. Then Copycat those Earthquakes. If your sub breaks the first action, give me a one-action Bounce to stop her from using Acid Spray and then punish her.

Substitute (15%) ~ Copycat / Bounce (one action) ~ Copycat / Punishment

"DUE TO RECENT POKéMON RELATED FLOODING, THE BATTLE ARENA IS CLOSED INDEFINITELY. APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE," the flyers read. They were posted all along the gate to the Arena, on every single tree that flanked it, and a few were even posted on the cliffs in the back. In truth, they made it seem far worse than it was. Most of the flood damage was inside the building. The county engineers said it had "suffered serious structural damage" and "could take months to repair" but honestly, who even cared? It's not as though one actually battled inside the Battle Arena. No, the real good spot was right out front, with a clear open sky, running water in earshot, and lots of boulders lying about. Out here, there was minimal sign that there had ever even been a flood. The ground was a bit softer than the last time the ref had set foot here, and the patio boards groaned a bit louder, but it was otherwise in pristine condition.

Shame the battle had to start so early in the morning, but what was a girl to do when there was only one guard who still accepted bribes around here?

-BEGIN ROUND 1-

C.W. Fluff was the first to move, twisting around and darting off to the trees on her side of the courtyard. As she approached, she coughed up a few green-glowing embers, which floated on to a patch of dead leaves and sticks. The plant matter levitated up, coalescing into a vague dog shape around the health-infused sparks. The plant hound sprung to life, playfully bouncing around its creator a few times before alerting itself to Lady Ouroboros' presence. The Ekans greeted the new enemy with a disapproving honk, and a rattle of her tail in the air. Instinctively, the substitute lowered its back in preparation for the coming attack. As Lady Ouroboros brought her rattle down, C.W. Fluff hopped onto her doll's back. The tail's impact sent waves throughout the whole Arena, and the doll's legs visibly wobbled under the strain of both holding up its master and resisting the earthquake under its wooden feet.

[c.w. fluff- HP: 85%, PP: 92%; Sub: 5%] [Lady Ouroboros- HP: 100%, PP: 95%]

With her substitute's shaky condition, C.W. Fluff knew she'd have to get off of it quickly. There was just one thing she had to do first... To defeat a snake, you must become the snake! were Eifie's words. Fluff crouched herself, tucking in her legs as best she could on top of her sub's back, and imitated the Ekans' honking and rattling noises eerily well. Her tail soon began to glow above her, at which point she jumped backwards off of her animate perch and... yes! Her ploy had worked! She had successfully become the snake! With a poof, her form had completely changed, and she was now literally her opponent! She gave out a quick rattle in midair, and then landed hard on her tail, sending shockwaves right back to Lady Ouroboros. The real Ekans honked out in pain. How dare the ground turn against her! In her frustration she slammed right back at the treasonous ground, widening the quake's area of effect. The substitute, with its lightning reflexes, lifted its now-serpentine master back on top of itself to shield it from the attack. This would be the final act of its short existence, as the vibrations proved too much to bear.

[Lady Ouroboros?- HP: 85%, PP: 85%] [Lady Ouroboros- HP: 85%, PP: 90%]

As her substitute collapsed, Shih-Na raised her tail once more, and with a rattle slammed it. The ground shook yet again. Lady Ouroboros - the real one - honked yet again. She did not, however, try to continue the quake this time. With the leaves reduced to a pile on the ground at last, she finally had a chance to hit this obvious faker with a proper move. She opened her jaw wide, and hacked out a glob of sludge. The sludge bomb only barely retained its shape long enough to make impact on its target's hide. With a glorp and a poof, Shih-Na was finally exposed as a... well, you could sort of tell she was a Zorua under all the sludge. Barely.

-Shih-Na's substitute broke on the second action.
-The earthquakes haven't done any visible damage... yet. I should emphasize the 'visible' part, too. Don't look at the Arena basement right now.
-Eifie commands first.

Oof, we'll need to go a bit easier on the energy, there. Let's Taunt her first, since she's got a lot of nasty status moves going on there. If she's Protecting, or somehow otherwise unhittable, use Swords Dance.

Next, let's Knock Off her Lucky Egg. If she's not holding it anymore, try Foul Play instead. And if you can't hit her at all, go with Swords Dance, but not if she's waiting to Snatch.

Finally, let's just wait and Payback. Nasty Plot if you can't hit her, but if she's waiting to Snatch make a real fuckin' huge Substitute instead.

Uninspired commands are go!

Taunt / Swords Dance ~ Knock Off / Foul Play / Swords Dance ~ Payback / Nasty Plot / Substitute (20%)

She wants a brawl? Cause that's how you get it. Use Gunk Shot twice, and try to keep your distances - though only if it does not impede your accuracy. Then, as she dumbly waits for you to move, go for an Infestation! With the super effectiveness and some luck, we should be able to prevent her from reaching you!

Gunk Shot ~ Gunk Shot ~ Infestation

-BEGIN ROUND 2-

Shih-Na found the gunk simpler to remove than expected. She flopped onto her back and rolled in the grass, honking and hissing merrily away as the sludge seeped into the grass. As the Zorua continued her impressions, Lady Ouroboros scowled. The humans each had a difficult time parsing the honks and warks, but a "HONK-eeee" and her all too smug grin gave them all the context they needed. Lady Ouroboros rushed at that, too incensed in the moment to think of anything else. Shih-Na blinked and rolled back to her feet, letting the serpent's momentum carry her past target. Ouroboros whipped her head around to face the Zorua, flinging leftover sludge and slobber into the air. She paused there, letting the sheer intensity of the moment sink in for her opponent while she prepared a real attack. Her jaw swelled as a ball, semisolid but mostly just more sludge, formed inside. She drew her head to a side and whipped it forward again, lobbing the gunk at Shih-Na. At their distance, aiming was unnecessary: the shot splattered squarely on her ribs.

[Shih-Na- HP: 59%, PP: 75%] [Lady Ouroboros- HP: 70%, PP: 78%]

Shih-Na dug her front paws into the mud to counter the attack's momentum, letting her rear swing around so she faced her opponent. She darted forward, eager to strike at the Lady Ouroboros' already re-swelling maw. She swiped once, grazing the Ekans' neck but jerking down hard on the necklace that was attaching her Lucky Egg. The pull made Ouroboros to flail for a moment, her face gorged with another Gunk Shot. By the time Shih-Na had her pinned down, she only had to open her mouth and let gravity take care of the rest. There was an echoing thwap as the ball fell onto the Zorua's back, and then rolled unceremoniously off into the dirt. Shih-Na honked in pain (it was unclear if this was further mocking or just a slip up on her part), reflexively yanking one more time on Lady Ouroboros' necklace. The string finally snapped, sending the two battlers tumbling away.

[Shih-Na- HP: 44%, PP: 71%] [Lady Ouroboros- HP: 56%, PP: 71%]

Shih-Na got back up, cockiness still on full display despite her now-shaky condition. She paced in an arc, giving her opponent a wide berth while still letting out a few teasing honks and rattles. She was waiting, clearly, and Lady Ouroboros was about to give her something to wait for. She honked, proudly, and shook her rattler. After an instant, the noise seemed to be coming from everywhere. From Lady Ouroboros, but also from the trees, the floorboards of the arena, the dirt, and myriad places in the Frontier well in the distance. The bugs were displeased, and following Lady Ouroboros' orders they swarmed. A cloud of locusts, crickets, bees, wasps, hornets, mosquitoes, every insect and arthropod that could flap its wings fast enough to join the frenzy descended upon Shih-Na. Mere moments later, she was invisible, and trapped in place by the furious cloud of bugs. Try as she did to escape their pokes and stings, to get her payback, she could not take two steps without risking something nasty making its way somewhere even nastier. She ducked her head down, trying to block out the buzzing by thinking happy thoughts. Nasty thoughts, such as what she would do to Lady Ouroboros when she was free from this swarm. She went over it in her mind, the exact timing and steps she would need... yes, the plan would be just marvelous.

Alright m'lady, Poison Jab, then Sludge Bomb, then Poison Jab again. If she's poisoned on any action, switch to Venoshock. If she's unhittable (except for sub) or trying a Counter on any action, switch to Coil.

Poison Jab / Venoshock / Coil ~ Sludge Bomb / Venoshock / Coil ~ Poison Jab / Venoshock / Coil

Also, shouldn't Infestation last for at least three more actions?

Move description states 3 to 4, so I flipped a coin and called it 3. The last action of this round counted, since Lady Ouroboros moved first. I did goof on Knock Off's energy though because I forgot we care about base power not just what it says on the db.

Default Re: Eifie vs. Lord of the Fireflies

All right, Shih-Na, if luck is on our side we may actually be able to get out of this! First, I want you to use your Illusion ability to disguise yourself as one of the bugs in the infestation. While Lady Ouroborus is all "wtf just happened", you should be able to discreetly slip out of the swarm and chill in the grass and flowers, or something, where she won't be able to see you. Even if you're a little visible, I mean, you're just a random insect. She doesn't know it's you. You've just disappeared, for all she knows!

Then invade her mind with an Extrasensory, twice. It's a purely mental attack, so she won't be able to tell where it's coming from, and will hopefully end up using Coil all three actions.

Good luck, Shih-Na! At the very least this should be interesting, since I've never seen anyone actually use the secondary power of Illusion before. And according to my calculations, if all goes well, this should actually put you narrowly in the lead! And if not, that's cool, too. You did the best you could with my half-assed commands, and I'm proud of you.

-BEGIN ROUND 3-

There was a poof, some smoke, and suddenly Shih-Na was nowhere to bee seen. The swarm around her continued to rage at the thin air, while one of their number discretely made its way to its outer edges. Lady Ouroboros slithered all around the buzzing mob, but saw no sign of the deceitful one. Silently, a bee hovered on the uppermost layers of the infestation, giving a tiny bee sigh of relief that her ploy had worked. Lady Ouroboros, certain that the coward had dug herself a hole or something petty like that, simply coiled herself up. As she did so, she could feel her scales tensing up.

[Shih-Na- HP: 40%, PP: 64%] [Lady Ouroboros- HP: 56%, PP: 67%]

Shih-Na's wings buzzed more slowly for a time as she concentrated. In her mind's eye, a million consciouses stretched out before her, each of them unique. And screaming. Almost all of them were screaming in rage, attacking a hated beast who was no longer there. Suckers, she thought to herself, and then resumed her search. She did not know if the mind she was looking for would be screaming or not, but she knew it was not an insect's. She focused, mentally swiping the bugs out of her search by the dozens, before... yes, there it was, the only one that was honking. Gods, she thought to herself, what an embarrassing way to talk. I wouldn't be caught dead making that noise... With a telekinetic twitch, Lady Ouroboros reeled in real space, her brain suddenly attacked by such a terrible migraine that she had trouble even processing the act of breathing.
Great, she thought once the worst had passed, she's invisible she can still see me. Perfect. She coiled herself further, hoping that by covering her head she might ease the headache with darkness. Her muscles tensed further under her skin, her coils becoming a thick meat shield for her face.

[Shih-Na- HP: 40%, PP: 60%] [Lady Ouroboros- HP: 41%, PP: 65%]

A cackle echoed throughout the mindspace as Shih-Na watched her plan unfold before her. The plotting had paid off! If her tiny bee face could show any form of expression it would be the widest, cockiest grin the likes of which the Battle Arena has not known since at least the previous round. She scrambled Lady Ouroboros' thoughts one more time, wholly unimpeded by the mass of coils she had tucked herself beneath. The Ekans responded by further retreating into the fetal position, her scales now pristine and tougher than a Rhyhorn's hide.

-END ROUND 3-

As the rest of the insects dispersed, Shih-Na poofed herself back to her old Zorua form. Before she could fire off another Extrasensory, the ref's whistle cried out. A tie?! What!

-Man, not a single hax roll has landed this match. What's even up with that?
-The first bout is a tie! I have no idea what to do here. If you guys go 1-1 in the remaining bouts, we can either call it by the total score across all bouts, or have these two fight another three rounds. I'm fine with either as long as you both agree.

Yes, I believe the way to go would be to keep those two in reserve if we can't settle it in the next two bouts. Eifie?

In any case, for now, I'll send out Mia Rhinestone!

Sure, we could do that.

Unfortunately, none of my squad is plain neutral against Mia Rhinestone except for that ones that I have plans to use in other battles. LotF, I wouldn't mind if you wanted to change your choice in light of that, since whoever I send out is going to have super-effective STAB.

Very well. In that case, I'll send out Hook of the Infect Boglands.

And I'll go with The Fuzz.

Start off with Discharge. If he's Protecting, switch to Thunderbolt instead, since you have nothing else useful to do.

Next go for his berry with a Bug Bite. If you haven't taken any damage, or if he has a sub, is Protecting, is preparing to Counter, or no longer has his berry, or if you just can't hit him with Bug Bite, though, use Thunderbolt. If he has clones or Thunderbolt is Spited, use Discharge instead. Use your attack only if you can hit him, please. If he's bouncing, see if you can wait him out.

Finally, if you didn't use Bug Bite last action and you can hit him with it now, and he stlil has his berry and doesn't have a sub and is not preparing to Counter, try it now. Otherwise, uh, try a Charge Beam. If you can't hit him, might as well Agility, I guess. But if he bounced up last action, just wait for him to come down and then attack him.

I meant to actually think about my commands, but... you're a good fuzz, right, fuzz? You can figure it out on your own! Go!

Discharge / Thunderbolt ~ Bug Bite / Thunderbolt / Discharge ~ Bug Bite / Charge Beam / Agility

Hook, we'll try and keep our distances here. Take that Discharge like and champ and eat your Sitrus Berry immediately afterwards, then Rock Tomb twice. Finish with Rock Slide.

Eat Sitrus Berry + Rock Tomb ~ Rock Tomb ~ Rock Slide
