[size=+2]Negrek and sanderidge vs I liek Squirtles and Flora[/size]

Format: 2&2 vs 2&2! Team doubles!
Style: Switch?
DQ: Two weeks sounds good, yeah
Damage Cap: 30%
Banned/Restricted Moves: OHKO moves
Arena Description: Amity Square

Amity Square has, miracle of miracles, done two very special things: expanded their list of Pokémon deemed cute enough to enter (read as: all base-stage mons~) and, for one night only, allowed Tiny Pokémon Battles! They may regret this, but hey, how destructive could a bunch of tiny Pokémon be?! (Don't answer that please.)

The arena, for the most part, is pretty open, with the exception of a few huts for Pokémon to hide in.
Additional Rules: Only baby/base stage Pokémon, please! Amity Square can only handle Tiny Pokémon Battles...

Alright, Joydancers Don't Cry, let's do this! Try not to cry, please.

...actually I lied. Do cry. Well, fake cry at that Makuhita, see if you can earn some sympathy, hehe...after that, perhaps a shock wave and a song?

birth, come forward!

Let's have some fun, shall we? Kick things off with an Icy Wind to bring Soulbat down a bit. Follow with an Ice Beam on Soulbat and end with a Psybeam on Makuhita. If one is unhittable, target the other with Ice Beam or Psybeam, as the case may be. If they're both unhittable, Water Sport.

Soulbat kicks the round into action with a fancy flight maneuver and a solid thwack of a metal tail into Joydancer's face, who shrieks unbiddenly at the sudden pain. This much damage, right out of the gate?! She lets out a whimper, but she won't cry, she DOESN'T cry... b i r t h, holding his head characteristically of a Psyduck, opens her mouth and out pours buckets of frosty air (no wonder she's blue, she must be cold with all that ice) that swirl and swish into Soulbat and Makuhita. Just as her Yache Berry begins to crystallize in the cold, Soulbat chomps down on it, and its tangy taste guards her from the worst of the ice's chill. Shuddering in the cold and feeling himself slowing down, Makuhita stops to scoop up some dirt and mud and fashion it into a tiny, not-at-all-Makuhita-like lump. But he beams proudly at it and steps behind it, and when Joydancers decides okay, maybe she'll cry just a little - but she's not actually crying!!, she focuses her efforts on the lump instead. Once she blinks away the false tears, she sees that she was aiming at the mud substitute, and she thinks maybe she needs her eyes checked soon.

b i r t h, after spending a moment confused at being the fastest, opens up her beak again - this time it's not a fancy mist that pops from her mouth, but a big bright beam of ice energy that pummels into Soulbat, sending her tumbling through the sky. The berry juice still burning in her veins bolsters her strength a little, but she's still left shivering violently. She lets out a hideous SCREECH of anger - how dare that little blue duck/platypus keep hitting her at her weakest spots! This is an abomination, and she intends to let the Psyduck know just how angry she is. b i r t h cowers back from the screech, and steps straight into the path of Makuhita's fist. With a wicked chuckle, Makuhita punches b i r t h onto the grassy ground. The exercise feels great, and Makuhita raises his fist briefly to the sky in celebration. He saunters back to his mud sculpture of himself, ducking beneath it (he has to lay pretty much flat on the ground, and you can still see half of his head) as Joydancers looses a zigzagging jolt of electricity. She diverts her frustration at hitting the substitute again into a quick little pivot on her heel, a practiced dance move.

Turning his attention away from the screeching bat in the sky, b i r t h tunes in to his constant, pounding headache and turns it outwardly toward Makuhita. Makuhita has stood up from his cover beneath his small substitute and is staring intensely at his fist, gathering energy towards it, and is completely unphased as b i r t h's psychic attack blasts painlessly into the last of the substitute. Jealous of the attention, Soulbat flaps her wings frantically and begins a crazed song/screech/caterwaul that dances off of every available surface. It hits Joydancers the worst, who grinds her heels into the grass and covers her ears to try and block out the awful sound. While she is looking down, Makuhita's eyes flash up and he lets his fist soar straight into his punching bag, b i r t h, who quacks and waves her arms to try and get away. (It doesn't work.) Joydancers is blinking away some strange liquid sneaking from her eyes (those are NOT tears, thank you) and she shakes it off, busting out her best song-voice. She sings and sings and tries to get Soulbat to hear her, but the purple bat is still making such an awful noise that the poor little Cleffa's song is completely drowned out.

Notes:

  • I'm reffing speed stat changes as +/- 10 base points.
  • Soulbat and b i r t h started with the same speed - I flipped a coin and Soulbat moved first this round. Icy Wind's speed drop now negates that - if Soulbat and b i r t h end up with the same speed later, b i r t h will go first for the first round of them having the same speed.
  • Speaking of, originally Makuhita would have moved first, but the Icy Wind speed drop tied him and Joydancers before he could move. I flipped a coin for them: Makuhita moved first this round, and Joydancers will move first next round. They'll alternate as long as their speeds remain the same.
  • Fake Tears doesn't bypass Substitute, so it failed.
  • Soulbat's Yache Berry activated for Icy Wind, was used for Ice Beam, and lost its effectiveness by the end of this round.
  • Makuhita's Substitute broke in action 3 from b i r t h's Psybeam.
  • Since Psybeam hit the Substitute, Makuhita was able to use Focus Punch.
  • Technically Makuhita's Focus Punch should go after Joydancer's Sing, because of its lower priority, but since it doesn't really affect anything, I just left it where it was in the order (as in, I was lazy). In case this affects anything, I'll pretend like it went after Sing for the beginning of the next round.
  • Joydancer's Sing missed, but it wouldn't have been heard anyway due to Uproar.
  • Uproar's effects ended at the end of this round.
  • Let me know if you catch anything I need to fix!
  • Negrek and sanderidge command first.
