Arena Description: Snurch

Snurch (snake church) is a hallowed ground for all things serpentine. Standing at the precipice of a sacred mountain, few humans have had the rare experience of stepping foot in this snemple (snake temple). Rumored to have been built thousands of years ago by a race of snake people, or sneople, Snurch is now a paradise for all kinds of snake Pokémon (or snokémon). Inside the snathedral (snake cathedral), enormous marble pillars reach up towards the vaulted ceiling. Patterns of ivy twist their way around these supports, like an Ekans wrapped around its prey. Colorful stained-glass windows depicting Rayquaza illuminate the halls, shining light on the dust in the air. Patches of wild grass and weeds grow between the cracks in the tiled floors, and some of the tiles have become dislodged.

Only serpentine Pokémon may be used here. This includes all snake Pokémon as well as Pokémon with a serpentine body structure, such as Milotic or Dragonair.

As an additional rule, Poison-type attacks may be used for 1% less energy and will hit Steel-type Pokémon for regular damage.

I've magicked sneme (snake meme) into Dragon's active squad, since I assume that's who she plans to use. I'm also assuming that VM means to use Li Feng, but since he has a Snivy in his party I'll give him the opportunity to send out. Please let me know if I missed any of your party snokémon (snake Pokémon).

Ready, Li Feng? Show them who's snoss (snake boss).

Start by using Sunny Day to heat things up. Then hit Pravus with a Flamethrower. Do this twice. If you are taunted on the first action before you can move, use Wring Out on DRAGONBEASTFEESH. If Pravus protects against either Flamethrower, use Sludge Bomb on DRAGONBEASTFEESH. If a mofo tries to use a super-effective ground attack on you, use Protect.

Hssss! He not melt you! It is blasphemy to melt a snake in this holiest of places! You must Dig deep into the ground, Pravus, and go into hibernation. Let the heathens burn each other while you wait patiently!

Once you have dug into the floor, you must use Snotosniller (snail Rototiller) to make the soil fertile! Yes, in our clan we are not averse to fraternizing with our brethren the snails... Tilling the ground will help us curry favor with that Snivy (snake Snivy). It is also good for the local plantlife. Just stick your tail up through the floor tiles and spin it around! Till the tiles! Till them!

And finally, hibernate with Snurse, or Snake Curse. This ancient curse will bring the power of the Wagyl to you - but only at a great cost... May the sanctity of this place protect us.

And one more thing. If you are unable to follow these commands at any point, you will instead use Snullsnoze, or Snake Bullsnoze, to bring your enemies to their knees! Their serpentine knees!

Ok, we're fastest here, so we have a good chance to set up first. Lead off with a Dragon dance to get nice and strong, then Bounce high in the sky for the action, then show that Snivy why he shouldn't mess with a DRAGON.

If you can't sneme on the last action then go for Steelix if it's up. Hopefully by ignoring the Seviper it understands and also ignores us.

If you can't Dragon Dance for some odd reason wait the first turn for Steelix to dig then use Earthquake.

I leave for a couple of days and come back to find myself conscripted into the snake war??? And surrounded by type disadvantages... Well, at least here in snurch, we have the best chance of snemeing on as many people as possible before we get knocked into snell (snake hell).

Start with a Snatch (...snake Snatch) so we can grab that Dragon Dance. Then, max Double Team clones for the best chance of avoiding that Bounce, and finish with a cool Knock Off on that Gyarados after he attacks (and hopefully misses). Simple! And we'll even get a couple extra stat boosts thanks to our metal snake friend over there B)

------------------------------​

It all started on a day like any other, a day so average that its averageness was above average. Vipera Magnifica was leisurely walking his Sliggoo, minding his own business, when a snake slithered in out of nowhere to bar his way. That was kind of weird.

"Excuse me, do you have a moment to hear about our lord and saviour, Snesus Christ?"

Minutes later, four spellbound trainers gathered in the snurch (snake church) to pay homage. While Vipera Magnifica, Music Dragon, and Wargle all had their snake Poké Balls, or Snoké Balls, at the ready, Dragon was clumsily attempting to juggle her many memes. She passed over feme (fuckin' meme) without a second thought, then paused for a moment over sneme (snail meme). But no, sneme (snail meme) was not a sneme (snake meme), nor even a sneme (snail (snake snail) meme), but merely a sneme (snail meme). At last she settled for sneme (snake meme) instead.

And then, as was due, they sat and waited. Finally sneifesus (snake Eifie Jesus) entered the snroom (snake room) and sat upon her snrone (snake throne) to judge the proceedings.

DRAGONBEASTFEESH promptly snarls his very best snarl (snake snarl), and the rest of the battles cower in fear. (Snake Eifie Jesus, or sneifesus, however, is unimpressed, and hisses back with deafening volume. DRAGONBEASTFEESH retreats, abashed.)

The fortuitously-chosen sneme (snake meme) watches DRAGONBEASTFEESH carefully as the Gyarados, eerily suspended in the air, begins to wriggle and contort his body in motions vaguely reminiscent of snake swimming, or snimming. A wicked gleam in his eye, sneme (snake meme) leaps forward to challenge his opponent to a DANCE-OFF in the name of their snord, or snake lord. The Snivy twirls about in far more graceful and elegant motions, tail leaf fluttering serenely in an invisible breeze, and DRAGONBEASTFEESH is so intimidated by sneme (snake meme)'s superior dance skills that he can do nothing but hover there uselessly as his spotlight is stolen and sneme (snake meme)'s body grows sleeker and yet more muscular before his eyes.

Pravus begins spinning all his body segments in place like so many tops in his very own form of snake applause, or snapplause. sneme (snake meme) takes a bow, and Pravus responds in kind, going so far as to arc his head forward straight into the ground. Dusty tiles and clods of dirt fly up around him as he bores right through the earth beneath, disappearing belowground faster than anyone would have expected. Eager to showcase her own art to her snord (snake lord), Li Feng stretches her head up toward the ceiling and hisses menacingly at a hole in the roof. All the clouds in the sky hastily flee from this terror, and sunlight shines down brighter than ever, filtering into the snurch (snake church) through several cracks in the roof.

Li Feng's offering is lovely indeed. DRAGONBEASTFEESH decides that he must go to it. So he smacks his mighty snail (snake tail) against the ground and achieves liftoff, floating up to the highest point of the roof and scrunching himself up so as not to present so big a target. Nobody seems interested in him anyway, however; sneme (snake meme) simply shrugs and dashes in several quick circles around the room, six identical Snivy leaping one by one from her shadow to surround her. When she slows down she's not even breathing hard, and Pravus sticks his freakin' tail up through the ground to applaud her, whirring it about to break up the soil beneath the tiles in sympathy for the local plantlife hurt in the making of this snurch (snake church). A few weeds perk up, and the seven Snivy along with them, tail leaves gleaming with new life.

Upon seeing her mark's tail protruding from the ground, Li Feng attempts to seize her chance to spit out a quick jet of snlame (snake flame) at what she can see of Pravus—but alas, she was spellbound by the spectacle of the applauding Steelix for too long, and Pravus's tail recedes back to the depths below before her attack reaches him. Then DRAGONBEASTFEESH comes crashing down to the ground with a bellowing, agonized roar as he lands hard on his precious tail, perhaps cracking a few scales that he worked so hard to polish. Taking advantage of DRAGONBEASTFEESH's distraction, sneme (snake meme) lunges forth, enveloped in a dark aura, and stamps right on DRAGONBEASTFEESH's poor tail. As the Gyarados shakes his head back and forth in pain, sneme (snake meme) swipes his Water Stone away and retreats a safe distance away, tossing his pilfered prize aside with a smirk.

Meanwhile, below, Pravus is consorting happily with his snriends (snail friends), not to be confused with snriends (snake friends), swapping bits of gardening advice with them in return for their blessing. A horde of snails (snail snails) crawls all over him, covering him in a sticky, oozing substance to reinforce his steel spikes and armor (though he'll be hard-pressed to move around efficiently in it... not that that was ever a priority of his, anyway). Meanwhile, above, Li Feng waits. Finally she decides there are no mofos waiting around to hit her with any scary Ground attacks, so she belches up a hunk of sludge and launches it in DRAGONBEASTFEESH's direction. The Gyarados roars in pain and disgust yet again. Why does everyone hate him...?

Damage and Energy

  • Li Feng's Health: 100%
  • Li Feng's Energy: 100% - 5% (Sunny Day) - 5% (Flamethrower) - 4% (Sludge Bomb) = 86%
  • sneme (snake meme)'s Health: 100%

  • DRAGONBEASTFEESH's Energy: 100% - 2% (Bounce (up)) - 3% (Bounce (down)) = 95%

Notes
  • Speed order: DRAGONBEASTFEESH (81) > sneme (snake meme) (78) > Li Feng (65) > Pravus (15).
  • Pravus kind of gave away his location by sticking his tail aboveground to till the soil and all, so I gave Li Feng a 50% chance of being able to hit before he retreated belowground. She failed this roll, though, and didn't try attacking him again next action.
  • DRAGONBEASTFEESH's Bounce missed entirely. Then sneme's Knock Off was a crit. All hail the memes!
  • On the last action, I rolled for whether Li Feng would attack DRAGONBEASTFEESH (80% chance) or panic and do nothing since her target didn't show up (20% chance). She rolled a 7, which was a bit of a waste of a would-have-been crit roll. :C
  • Music Dragon commands first, then Wargle, then Dragon, and finally Vipera Magnifica.

Yes... yes...! Our gardening grows stronger! Soon none shall stand in our way! I must have more! More Rototiller! More! If they try to hit you underground with an Earthquake or similar move, you will Protect. But rest assured, there will be more gardening to come... they have not seen the last of it...

After this, you will Dig to the surface and attack Li Feng! Your enemies will cower in fear as you emerge from the ground, covered in snails! Yes!

On your last action, you will truly become the Snake Messiah, or Snessiah (Snail Messiah)! A glorious union of snake and snail! You will Rise above them and they will kneel before you! And if they should attack you? Blasphemy!! You will punish the unbelievers! If Dragonbeastfeesh defies you, you will Smack him Down to the snell (snake hell) where he belongs! Or else, if Li Feng defies you, you will strike her with the righteous Earth Power of a thousand snails! Yes - if either of them dares target you with anything, they shall pay.

Well then. If we want to play these games, everyone wants to gang on us, we can give it back.

Hit them with an Snearthquake. Then show the insolent little Snivy (Snake snivy) why he shouldn't mess with a Dragon. That EQ should take out his clones, so let's make sure he's nice and slow. Icy Wind him to hit him good. Then Bounce up again. If you couldn't Earthquake for some reason try again, and push Icy wind back. If you can't hit Sneme with Icy wind use Dragon Dance, but if you suspect one of them is snatching it, use Earthquake

Ah yes. This should be fun. First Snotect (snake protect) yourself from that Earthquake, as we don't want to get hit twice this round. You'll have to get hit by Pravus's Dig, but if you use Snearthquake (snake earthquake) before he can surface, he'll be taking more damage than you will. Finally, it's time to put that sneretic (snake heretic) in his proper place. Snatch (snake snatch) that Magnet Rise, and make your ascent into divine serpenthood. That will teach the sneathens (snail heathens) not to snuck with you.

------------------------------​

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, guess I'll go... smash up the fuckin' earth...

The inside of DRAGONBEASTFEESH's is a tumultuous place indeed. Even the Gyarados himself isn't quite sure how he reached this destructive conclusion, but it has come to him in this most snacred of places, and thus he must see it through in accordance with the will of snake Eifie Jesus, or sneifesus. So he lets out a monstrous roar and then slams his tail mightily into the ground, and several spindly cracks spread across the tiles as the earth begins to shake. Li Feng has already made her way over to the snake throne, or snrone, and offers up a portion of her energy for its divine protections from this disturbance. sneme (snake meme) and his snlones (snake clones) yelp as one as the rippling ground throws all seven of them up into the air, and only one of them remains to hit the floor again. Belowground, Pravus curls himself tightly around as many snails as he can fit in his stony embrace, shielding them with his body as he musters up a transparent bubble of energy to surround them all. The roof of the tunnel shudders and then collapses atop them, but Pravus's shield holds firm, and silent tears run down his steely cheeks for the snails he could not save from this disaster. Flattened snails lie defeated on flattened, once beautifully-tended patches of once-vibrant green grass. Pravus grits his teeth and shakes his head in unbridled fury. He shall have vengeance for each and every one of the snails that was harmed today.

Pravus's snrage (snail rage) rises up through the ground to fill sneme (snake meme) with snrage (snake rage). Turning on the Destroyer of Snails, sneme (snake meme) points his tail leaf straight up at the sky, rapidly harnessing power from the intense sun that warms the snathedral (or snake cathedral) to form a giant ball of incandescent light above his head. He sends it away with a dismissive wave of his snout, and blinding sunlight bursts forth to sear DRAGONBEASTFEESH's skin, tearing through his tough outer layer of scales to eat away at the delicate skin beneath. Enraged, the landlocked sea serpent retaliates with a thin blast of cool wind laced with particles of ice and snow. sneme (snake meme) jumps back too late from the sudden cold, and a thin layer of frost crystallizes over his limbs. The Snivy (snake Snivy) calls up another orb of sunlight in hopes of warming himself, teeth chattering all the while, but the frost stubbornly clings to his skin until he gives up and sends it rocketing forward to assault DRAGONBEASTFEESH once again.

And now Li Feng, too, decides that she must become a Destroyer of Snails. A low hiss echoes throughout the snake room, or snroom, as she stretches her body out and lifts her tail. Sensing the tension above, the surviving snails below scurry for cover as Li Feng smashes her tail into the ground, leaving several tile-shaped indents in her lovely snake skin. Yet more of the roof of Pravus's little refuge caves in to Li Feng's might, and this time Pravus is unable to protect any of his snail brethren (or snethren) from the avalanche of rock and dirt that follows. Terrified snails (snail snails) crowd atop his armor, clinging to their saviour for dear life. The wailing of crushed, fallen snails fills Pravus's ears until he can't take this anymore. Unleashing his loudest roar of pure, unadulterated fury, the Steelix tunnels back up through the earth, relentlessly smashing through compacted dirt and rock and tile, to loom far above the gravely transgressing Li Feng, a fearsome sight indeed paired with the sudden gasps of snails who have never before seen sunlight, sizzling to their untimely deaths on his armor. Pravus reaches down and grabs the Seviper in his jaws, shaking her back and forth in the air while she struggles to endure the scent of dead roasted snail. He tosses her up into the air only to snatch her back with his tail, crushing her midsection tight and smacking her into the ground again and again before she finally wriggles free.

This terrifies DRAGONBEASTFEESH. He must flee. So again he achieves liftoff and floats serenely up to the ceiling, where he scrunches himself up and watches the action awkwardly, trembling. Hardly even noticing any of the ruckus, sneme (snake meme) contents himself by calling up a veil of golden psychic energy to keep him safe from further icy assaults. Glad to see that DRAGONBEASTFEESH is out of his way, and the escaped Li Feng doesn't seem to be doing much (though is that a slightly more wicked glint then usual that he spots in her eyes?), Pravus prepares himself for his ultimate ascension, twisting his body segments into perfect alignment... and then, suddenly engulfed in a deep black aura, Li Feng darts forth, wrapping herself briefly around him and then gliding away from him through the air. The levitating snake comes to a stop once she's several feet away from him and turns to stick out her forked tongue, and Pravus slams his tail onto the ground in frustration, crushing a few wayward snails.

  • Wrote the last half of this in kind of a hurry, so sorry for any, like, stuff.
  • Icy Wind is actually a multi-target move, but I figure it's easy enough to restrict to just one target, so it didn't get the spread damage reduction.
  • DRAGONBEASTFEESH was hardly a very terrifying beast after sneme messed with him, so Intimidate wore off for her after the second action.
  • DRAGONBEASTFEESH is quite large, and we're indoors, but after rereading the arena description is seems like he can Bounce suitably high to avoid most attacks.
  • Li Feng was ordered to Snatch reactively, and Pravus wasn't really told to wait around for anything or warned about Snatch, so by the time she actually targeted him it was too late for him to switch moves. (Even if she started readying herself to Snatch before, Snatch is not actually a targeted move, so since Pravus wasn't warned about Snatch things would have proceeded the same way.)
  • Wargle commands first, then Dragon, then Vipera Magnifica, then Music Dragon.

Either someone takes the hit action one or we make them all waste it protecting. Prioritize hitting Sneme, if you can't hit him hit Li Feng, if you can't hit her hit Pravus.

Then show Sneme he has a reason to fear you. Scorch it. If you can't hit it, go for Pravus. If both of them are unhittable except for subs, use another Earthquake.

Lastly, show them your anger, let it all out. Same priority list as Bounce.

Pfff, taking that Bounce is what we put the Reflect up for. ...Which I'm slightly regretting now? Since it seems like it might be a better idea to just Protect first anyways. Then, Mirror Coat that Flamethrower back, and then let's use Knock Off on Li Feng. If she Protects/Detects/has a sub, use... I dunno, Grassy Terrain? And if you're Taunted, use... Twister for a bit of all around damage, I guess. bluh

Start by using Switcheroo on Pravus. If you can't do that, use it on Sneme instead. Then burn the snonbelievers with the flames of snabsolution! Use Flamethrower on Pravus twice, and switch to Earthquake if he goes underground or has clones, or you are tormented. If he protects or is otherwise completely unhittable, just Chill out and wait for your next chance to strike.

Hrrm. I don't like that one bit, but you're the boss!

So, Li Feng wants to give you her sludge, does she? Fool! Sludge will only make us stronger!

Pravus, this is your chance to become a snail! Place the sludge underneath you and use it to form a slimy snail body. Then, roll into a ball and become a shell! Just imagine: a neatly curled-up Steelix on a blob of Black Sludge... What could be more beautiful?

It's time to show them the Ultimate Snail Combo! Let's see how Li Feng feels about attacking you now! Wahahaha!

Defense Curl + Gyro Ball + Rollout @ Li Feng

------------------------------​

Now it is sneme (snake meme)'s turn to sit atop the snrone (snake throne). Shoving snake Eifie Jesus, or sneifesus, out of the way, he plonks his royal butt down on the snrone (snake throne) to survey the battle with an imperious gaze. Nothing can hurt him up here! And indeed, nobody even tries. A terrified, yelping, out-of-control DRAGONBEASTFEESH comes plummeting down from above to land painfully, let again, on his much-abused tail. sneme (snake meme) snickers to himself. Li Feng giggles to herself. Pravus doesn't really care, and that's the most hurtful part of all. DRAGONBEASTFEESH curls up miserably on the ground, sucking on his wounded tail (and accidentally piercing it with a fang or two) and feeling quite sorry for himself.

Deciding the excitement is over, Li Feng creeps up to Pravus and offers him her coveted Black Sludge, which the gullible Steelix eagerly accepts once she tells him all about its affinity with snake and snail alike. The sludge burns and starts to eat small holes through Pravus's armor, and he winces in pain, but Li Feng assures him that this is all part of the snail-bonding process. It is simply what one must go through to become one with the snail. Comforted by this thought, Pravus curls up into the tiniest tiny little ball he can manage (towering over the others at over a dozen feet tall) and places the blob of blob beneath him to try out his new snail rolling skills, strengthening his steel coat as he attempts to barrel forward in a speedy yet controlled manner... but the elaborate maneuvers of the snail do elude him, and he crashes straight into one of the walls of the snathedral. Pravus uncurls himself at once, horrified at the damage he's wrought upon the walls of this holy snlace (snake place)... a massive hole gapes from the stone in front of him, letting in the harsh sunlight and a warm breeze and some very non-holy buzzy bugs.

Invigorated by the warmth that suddenly washes over him, DRAGONBEASTFEESH raises his head and lets loose a blast of flame right in sneme (snake meme)'s FACE. That'll show that snloser (SNAIL loser) for daring to pick on him, the mighty DRAGONBEASTFEESH. sneme (snake meme) screams and drops to the floor, rolling around desperately in an attempt to extinguish the flames that crackle away around his tail leaf. DRAGONBEASTFEESH cringes to himself. He didn't mean to hurt his opponent that much...

Taking a leaf from DRAGONBEASTFEESH's book, Li Feng spits out a stream of hissing flame in Pravus's direction as well. The white-hot fire strikes the same spot the Steelix's new Black Sludge has anchored itself to eat away at his armor, and Pravus writhes on the floor in pain, his thrashing tail opening the hole in the wall even wider. Instantly attracted by the scent of burning sludge and Steelix armor, a horde of snails floods through the hole to swarm over Pravus's wound...

Cackling to herself, sneme (snake meme) locks eyes with DRAGONBEASTFEESH, skin suddenly gleaming with all the colours of the rainbow as he lets loose not one, but TWO multicoloured reflections of the Gyarados's Flamethrower that collide with DRAGONBEASTFEESH as one and slam him backwards into the snrone (snake throne). Man, now DRAGONBEASTFEESH is really angry. Everyone's going to blame him for destroying the hole snrone (snake throne)! He'll be ostracized from society! And it's all that sneme (snake meme)'s fault! As DRAGONBEASTFEESH roars to the skies, his anger takes physical form in the dragon fire that bursts from his scales to envelop his body in harsh green, flickering flames. Eyes glowing red, he throws himself forward at sneme (snake meme), thrashing at him with his tail and letting the dragon fire work its magic on the Snivy's skin. sneme (snake meme) yelps and struggles to get away, but it's a while before he can find an opening. Once he finally manages it, he runs straight over to Li Feng and... notices that she isn't holding her Black Sludge anymore. This angers him, so he punches her in the FACE. This, in turn, angers Li Feng, so she spits yet more flame in Pravus's direction, filling the room with the acrid stench of burning snail as the harsh sunlight from outside fades away.

Arena Status
  • A Water Stone is lying in a crack in the tile.
  • There's a huge gaping hole in one of the walls of the snathedral leading to the wildnerness outside.

Damage and Energy

  • Li Feng's Health: 87% - 8% (Knock Off) = 79%
  • Li Feng's Energy: 67% - 3% (Switcheroo) - 5% (Flamethrower) = 59%
  • sneme (snake meme)'s Health: 80% - 16% (Flamethrower) - 6% (Outrage) = 58%
  • sneme (snake meme)'s Energy: 74% - 2% (Protect) - 16% (Mirror Coat) - 4% (Knock Off) = 52%
  • Pravus's Health: 73% - 21% (Flamethrower) - 3% (Black Sludge) - 16% (Flamethrower) = 38% (capped)
  • Pravus's Energy: 85% - 4% (Ultimate Snail (snail fail) Combo) = 81%
  • DRAGONBEASTFEESH's Health: 43% - 32% (Mirror Coat) = 11%
  • DRAGONBEASTFEESH's Energy: 83% - 3% (Bounce (down)) - 5% (Flamethrower) - 7% (Outrage) = 68%

Notes
  • Speed order: DRAGONBEASTFEESH (81) > Li Feng (65) > sneme (snake meme) (63) > Pravus (15).
  • I'm very tired, so uh, please point out mistakes. I had to redo half the calculations for this round multiple times. Letters and numbers are blurring before my eyes...
  • DRAGONBEASTFEESH's Bounce missed AGAIN. I'm so sorry you poor, majestic creature. :C
  • I feel like Rollout and Gyro Ball are actually quite difficult to combine. Rollout is more like uncontrollably rolling as fast as possible, while Gyro Ball relies more on like, slow and controlled rolling. In the end, the best Pravus could do was basically a Steel-typed Rollout (+ Defense Curl)... which missed.
  • Li Feng's first Flamethrower was a crit.
  • The user of Outrage can't actually choose its target, so it was just a coincidence that DRAGONBEASTFEESH actually targeted sneme.
  • Like burn damage, I'm assuming Black Sludge damage counts toward the cap.
  • Dragon commands first, then Vipera Magnifica, then Music Dragon, then Wargle. Please take your time posting commands because omg, life. Zzzzz...

Hmmm, I wonder if we can get that KO..? Toss a Solarbeam over at DRAGONBEASTFEESH, or if he's already out of the game (or somehow unreachable???) then use Aqua Tail on Pravus instead.

Then, Aqua Tail away! If Pravus is protect/detecting/underground/you can't use Aqua Tail without a water source/you are Tormented, switch to Natural Gift on Li Feng instead. hmmm

Solarbeam @ DRAGONBEASTFEESH / Aqua Tail @ Pravus / Natural Gift @ Li Feng ~ Aqua Tail @ Pravus / Natural Gift @ Li Feng ~ Aqua Tail @ Pravus / Natural Gift @ Li Feng
