UPN PASBL: Shuckle vs Sav
(C)Shuckle V. Beautiful Savage(A)
3v3 (Hidden Squad)
Equiall 2
Switch = OK
Arena: Lawn

Special Rules: Rather than the usual 6 Pokemon in your squad, you will only bring 4.

Ok, PMs in, remember to squad with four not six. Shuckle orders first after the hidden round.

Shuckle 06-12-2016 04:11 PM

Thanks for taking the match, iron. PM sent!

Good luck sav! Hopefully my special rule didn't affect you too much. The combination of hidden squad + switch ok already makes for some interesting matchups, but I was curious to see how a reduced-size squad would affect our decisions to switch or stay in.

Alright, time to see if I'm still just as terrible at ASB as I used to be ;p

Beautiful Savage 06-12-2016 05:12 PM

PM sent a while ago. Should we set a DQ time?

Ironthunder 06-12-2016 05:19 PM

iirc DQ times were set to a week as an absolute maximum. I think it was week-bump-week-DQ or something, so that's what we'll roll with. Reffing to come in the morning.

I'll be leading with Roose. Fry your opponent with a Thunderbolt off the bat, then lock them up with a Thunder Wave.

Round 1: Ok then, what the hell happened with Sleep Powder?

And so the trainers face off across the heavily used Lawn arena, now that the grumbling vets and the hired Skiddos have been cleared off of it. We're too cheap to buy actual lawnmowers in ASB so we hire some mons to do it for us. Plus if it was up to someone to mow the place it'd never get done. Anyway, as our trainers observe each other, the ancient Shuckle vs the relatively new Sav, fresh back from pulling a Cele, they unleash the contents of their balls into the arena, revealing Shuckle's nameless Exeggutor, henceforth referred to as Nutjob, and Sav's Eelektrik, Roose. Oh this looks fun. And by fun I mean hell.

Anyway, the two mons stare down, before the Exeggutor leads into the fray with a Barrage of energy balls, the blasts slamming into the Eelektrik, who already started his assault, his Thunderbolt scything through the energy blobs to strike the plant demon, who staggers back, before readying for the next assault. This time the Exeggutor unleashes a blast of spores, the Sleep Powder being inhaled by the gaping maw of the Electric eel, who starts to feel sleepy as a result. As it drifts off to sleep, it fires off a haphazard Thunder Wave, clipping the leg of the Psychic type and sending it stumbling, the limb being paralyzed as a result!

Nutjob holds the lead in both health and energy. Roose's asleep and Nutjob's left leg is slightly paralyzed, both are good for two.

Shuckle 06-13-2016 04:54 PM

reeeee its not named nutjob reeeee

Create a Light Screen and then dribble some Toxic onto it while it slumbers.

Beautiful Savage 06-14-2016 10:26 AM

Wake up pls

Sleep Talk, then Sleep Talk again. If you wake up, use a Toxic of your own instead of Sleep Talk.

Ironthunder 06-15-2016 08:59 AM

Round 2: Rhee can't save you now.

With his foe asleep, the Exeggutor fancies his chances, erecting (heh) a Light Screen before him, preparing to face the inevitable special onslaught that's expected of Electric types such as Eelektrik. Roose, however, is fast asleep, but starts to mumble in his Sleep, Talking about some sort of... Spark? Almost as if on cue, the Eelektrik's long slimy body is enshrouded in an electric aura, before it boomerangs at the Exeggutor, as Nutjob stumbles away from the physical strike as it shatters his screen like hot glass in snow, the flailing tail of the sleeping eel catching Nutjob as he moves away.

Looking at his foe, the Grass type moves closer, cautious of the sleepy eel, before spewing a glob of Toxic crap over its snoozing form. That's going to factor in soon. But then the Psychic type backs up suddenly: It's heard the Electric type Sleep Talking again, and it doesn't want that to the face. The electric is surrounded in a bright yellow aura once more, but this time a bolt of Thunder tears through the space, slamming into the Exeggutor's side and sending it spinning, before it thanks its lucky stars that it resists Electric.

Roose went untouched that round, as Nutjob slid slightly deeper into his first third, eviscerating any sort of health advantage on either side. Roose should wake up next round, which is also when Toxic'll kick in, and Nutjob is no longer paralyzed. Both are good for two.

Beautiful Savage 06-15-2016 10:53 AM

Switch to Hope.


http://upnetwork.net/fb/sprites/pn606.gifHope: Level 2 Female Beheeyem
Biography: Pending
Hidden Power: Pending
EDIT: because I don't know how switching works lol. Use Round, then a Toxic of your own.

Shuckle 06-17-2016 12:38 AM

Eurgh. Gross round.

Sit through the Round and then blow the Toxic back onto Beheeyem with a Psychic Wave. Don't let any of the toxic get on you! Finish with a Barrage.

Ironthunder 06-17-2016 07:55 AM

Round 3: All Hope is Lost.

Seeing that he's clearly at a disadvantage in this situation, Sav decides for a tactical switch, recalling his sleeping Eelektrik in favor of his Beheeyem, Hope. And surprisingly, Nutjob isn't taking advantage of this to attack, but instead just sits down and waits for something? I don't know, probably UPN day or Christmas or his birthday. Anyway, Hopes' in and acclimatised to the arena, and announces her presence with an eerie interstellar Round, the sound causing pain to the earthly Exeggutor.

And so the Beheeyem begins its second attack, the alien firing off a blast of Toxic goo! This is what the plant was waiting for though, as it emits a Psychic wave, repelling the poisonous goo! The Beheeyem recoils as it gets chunks of its own attack slamming into it, panicking as the toxins sink into the Psychic type's systems! And now the Exeggutor acts, firing off another Barrage of explodey things, but is stopped prematurely due to the ref declaring the round to be over.

Hope took a hit, but retains a lead over Nutjob. Hope is badly poisoned and at half Poison, she's good for two while Nutjob could use a breather. Roose is still asleep and inside his Pokeball.

Shuckle 06-17-2016 11:31 PM

Scatter out a Stun Spore and then smack him in his big stupid face with a Wood Hammer.

Beautiful Savage 06-18-2016 08:18 AM

Hold your breath while floating back and up, higher than Exeggutor can reach. Once you reach safety, retaliate with a Shadow Ball.

Ironthunder 06-22-2016 05:10 AM

Round 4: Higher and Higher

And so the Exeggutor starts off another round of fresh hell, and his second against this opponent. Opting for a fourth status in four rounds, the Exeggutor fires off a cloud of Stun Spores, aiming to paralyze his mystical foe! Hope's having none of that shit however, and grimly holds her breath as she floats up, up and away, completely unaffected as she didn't really breathe any spores in.

As his foe is clearly out of range, Nutjob opts to not waste his energy on a Wood Hammer that's not even going to tickle the alien's toes. Nope, instead he'll just stand there and glare at it like one would a dog turd they just stood in. And the Psychic type's giving it reason to be grumpy, as it fires off a Shadow Ball at its fellow Psychic type, the blast from the spectral orb sending the Exeggutor tumbling even as it sluggishly moves to dodge!

Nutjob took a huge whack this round, falling into his second third of health, while Hope's poison damage is kicking in to be the only hit she took. Hope's at half Ghost and is good for two, Nutjob's refreshed after their unintentional breather that they actually sort of needed.

Beautiful Savage 06-22-2016 02:59 PM

Stay up high. Set up a Cubic Light Screen, then use Synchronoise.

Shuckle 06-23-2016 12:37 PM

Gravity, Wood Hammer.

Ironthunder 06-25-2016 12:18 PM

Round 5: Down to Earth

And so the battle rages on, with the Beheeyem deciding to play defensive, erecting a boxlike Light Screen around herself to guard from special hits, but the next hit isn't special: It's status, as the Exeggutor taps into his bullshit movepool and forces an arena change, as [GRAVITY INTENSIFIES] and drags the Beheeyem down to his level! The Gravity shift seems to have thrown Hope a bit: She's a lot more cautious now, sat within her boxscreen.

Anyway, despiter her caution, the Beheeyem decides to cause some serious harm to her fellow Psychic type, unleashing a vicious Synchronoise, causing the Exeggutor to wail out in pain, recoiling from the sound! But then it swings its heads back around, a devastating Wood Hammer passing through the cubic screen and sending the alien tumbling!

Both took a huge hit, sliding through their respective thirds. Gravity is in full effect, the Light Screen is intact for the next four rounds. Nutjob might be a bit knackered into the start of the next round, but it'll clear up quickly.

Shuckle 06-25-2016 01:10 PM

Flash, then toss a Barrage.

Beautiful Savage 06-25-2016 03:45 PM

Cubic Light Screen shouldn't be destroyed by Wood Hammer. It should remain for 5 rounds boosting my special defense, unaffected by physical attacks. Unless I'm seriously wrong. Orders to come later.

Beautiful Savage 06-26-2016 10:58 AM

Close your eyes to shield yourself from flash, then use Signal Beam. Finish with a third Signal Beam.

Possible three-mover confirmed.

Shuckle 06-26-2016 09:06 PM

Oh right this is why nobody uses Exeggutor.

Ironthunder 06-28-2016 06:09 PM

Round 6: Why people don't use Exeggutor.

And so the battle rages on, with the Exeggutor unleashing a blinding Flash against his foe, which could have serious repercussions for the Beheeyem! ...That is if its eyes weren't shut, completely negating the move. haha lol. Peeved by this waste of energy, Nutjob glares at his astral foe, before beginning his next assault.

This time it's a more familiar technique, an explosive Barrage being hurled past the cubic screen and into the alien, the explosions knocking it backwards a fair way. Grinning, the Grass type seems satisfied, but not for long, as no sooner than the smoke clears, Hope's firing off a Signal Beam, the rainbow cannon slamming the Exeggutor for colossal damage! And if that's not enough, the pure Psychic type has decided that there comes a time for overkill, and that time is now, as another vicious Signal Beam tears forth from its hands and into the Exeggutor, who's by now screaming from the pain!

Nutjob's health just got shat on, leaving it deep within critical health, whereas Hope's into her second third. Hope's Bug is shot, both are somewhat good for two, although Hope wouldn't mind a lighter round.

Shuckle 06-28-2016 07:36 PM


a.) not named nutjob
b.) just named exeggutor
c.) still not named anything

Ironthunder 06-29-2016 03:57 AM

If you don't give it a nickname, I will give it one for the duration of the match, because it feels really weird just referring to them by the species. You're not the first I've done this to, you won't be the last.

Beautiful Savage 06-29-2016 08:21 AM

Synchronoise. Do it again if necessary.
