Gallade The News is Thus...

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the closing of the Donnybrook Coliseum. We ran into a lot of financial trouble trying to keep the battles afloat, but it turns out running secret underground coliseums isn’t as profitable as it sounds. As such the place has been demolished. Which leads me to my second announcement…

Wait for it…


Welcome one and all to the grand opening of the DONNYBROOK SHOPPING MALL!


Donnybrook Shopping Mall:

Built over the remains of the demolished Donnybrook Coliseum, the Donnybrook Shopping Mall is a standard sized two floor mall. The mall is made up of two wings attached perpendicularly to form an L shape. The floors are 24 feet wide from store door to store door and the ceiling height of each floor is about 14 feet. The second floor is essentially a large walkway. The floor has 6 feet wide by 22 feet long openings through which one can see the first floor. These openings are broken up every 22 feet by a horizontal 8 foot wide walkway, and they also have 6 foot high railings. On the sides of each opening are the actual walkways of the second floor, and they run 9 feet across on either side.

Stores line the sides of the mall on both floors. The mall has a large variation of stores, some examples being Gamestop, Brookstone, Abercrombie, etc. The stores are up to the ref’s discretion, and they need not delineate exactly which stores are around unless one of the battlers asks or one of the Pokemon enters the store. The floors of the mall are full of booths regularly spaced out, as well as benches, trash cans, and normal mall related furnishings. Escalators can be found at the ends of each wing and in the middle of the mall between the wings. There is also a set of stairs in the middle area between the two escalators.

On the second floor in the middle area is the food court, full of tables, mini restaurant kiosks, and a merry-go-round. There is a skylight in the middle area above the food court, if broken it can possibly lead to the roof, but the roof is patrolled by vicious guards who especially hate flying Pokemon, they’re armed with copious Pikachus so it is not recommended that the challenger attempt to flee up there.

The mall is full of patrons at all times, they don’t mind the battles as they enjoy destruction and are bloodthirsty hooligans. Many of them will probably flock around the battle to watch, and if they are injured as a result they won't mind as it is part of the risk of visiting the mall. The mall is well lit by the indestructible foresight lights cannibalized by the destruction of the Donnybrook Coliseum, and it’s obviously indoors, meaning no weather effects are permitted.

Since this is where the Donnybrook Coliseum was the Mall is located in a massive underground cavern. This means that rocks can be summoned through the mall floor at no extra expense. The janitors hate their lives.

Battles start on the first floor in one of the wings and it is recommended that the referee ref announcer style as though they were on scene following the battle. Also, everything is totally destructible and its freaking awesome.

The format of the battles as of now is:

3 vs 3
Single Match
4 vs 4
Doubles Match
Slapstick OR Realistic (Decided By Challenger)
Return = KO
Equilevel (Not Evo)
72 Hr DQ
