Inventive =/= good.

It's crap, it causes only problems for no benefits. Eradicating the arena is not beneficial to diversity, doing major harm to some of the crappier types while having no effect on most of the good ones. This is particularly important as a lot of the time the only way to make use of some of the crappier Pokémon that people like is to write arenas that benefit them - see Grass types in a rain forest or Rock types in a cave. And the argument that GLs can just put in a quick clause to avoid the problem merely reinforces my point given that we should be aiming for less special exceptions in gyms, not more. Items are also now common enough that they are relevant.

Dodge and strike moves are fine in terns of descriptions, people just ref them working perfectly too readily.
