• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

I feel like we need MOAR REFS.
Be a good idea.
We're working on it, haha! A lot of the veteran-members are a little busy with work/adult life - I know zhorken spent a lot of time putting the sumo update together, and getting more refs set up is a fairly involved process (source: the ref quiz I took and will probably have to retake lmao, and that's only step one!)

More refs would definitely be a good thing though, especially with the update. Apply! Tell your friends!

Challenge for Flora!
Format: 2 vs. 2, singles
Style: Set
DQ: ...A month?
Damage Cap: 30%
Banned/Restricted Moves: Direct healing, OHKO
Arena Description: A minor, unsettled island in Alola, little more than a hundred metres in diameter. It's comprised mainly of sand, with some palm trees dotting the coast. The ocean provides ample sources of water for moves such as surf which require it.
Additional Rules: The tropical nature of this arena amplifies the effects of rain and intense sunlight by 1.25x and extends their effects by three actions, while diminishing the effect of hail by .75x and cutting its effect by three actions.

Challenge for anyone.

Format: 1 and 1 vs. 1 and 1 (Multi)
Style: Set
DQ: 1 month
Damage Cap: 40
Banned/Restricted Moves: OHKOs, Perish Song, Moves that knock the user out

Arena:Malie City
Nothing special, just bringing Asberian destruction to Alola. This battle will take place in the streets of Malie City proper, and going into buildings is prohibited. Climbing or perching on the shops, and using buildings as cover is encouraged.

Additional Rules:Pokemon introduced in Alola, or Alolan Forms only.
I'll take this, as long as none of the four of you will be horribly disappointed in my lack of familiarity with anything Alola!

Thread will be up soon-ish.

Alright, I've updated the current challenge list, and stuck all the old ones in a hide box. If anyone wants to revive their challenge, feel free to repost it or just link to it.

Here's a battle that SS and I are going to ref for Flora, Murkrow, and Karousever!

Format: 1v1v1 single
Style: (Set)
DQ: 1 week
Damage Cap: 40%
Banned/Restricted Moves: None. Moves requiring non-pizza resources are fine, we'll make them work.
Arena Description: Giant Pizza Sailing Aimlessly Through Outer Space, Redux

There is yet another giant motherfucking PIZZA sailing through the motherfucking GALAXY. What're you gonna do, eat it? Nah, it's got mushrooms on it. Gross. Too gross to eat, but something like a large boulder or a Draco Meteor could totally blow a hole in it. Make sure you don't fall off! I heard that space is littered with giant fucking anchovies.

Additional Rules: The pizza is quite large, but should a Pokémon happen to fall off, there will be consequences... like, it might hurt, or something. I dunno, have you tried falling off a giant pizza sailing aimlessly through outer space? Flying and hovering Pokémon are equally susceptible to falling off the edge of the pizza, because anime physics. Direct healing, chills, and OHKOs are allowed, but a Pokémon will have to remain very still and concentrate very hard while using them... prime time to shove them into the deepest, darkest depths of outer space, wouldn't you say?

MIMIKYU BATTLE ROYALE!
Format: 1 v. 1 v. 1 v. 1 (etc., just Mimikyus)

Style: Switch

DQ: 48 hours

Damage Cap: 20%

Banned/Restricted Moves: OHKO's

Arena Description: Welcome to the land of Mimikyu. A plain, no-bonus arena that will bend to a user's will a small bit, creating rocks, water, and anything else a Mimikyu will need to battle. Only Mimikyus can control it, though, as they're the only ones who know what it's like to feel so ALONE. Also, don't uproot any turf near the trainers... results aren't pretty...

Additional Rules: Mimikyu only.

My Mimikyu will be the BEST Mimikyu.
Cancelling this because all of the mimikyus are busy.
