Round 1: Much STAB many wow

It's sweltering inside the greenhouse, although the referee is the only one who really notices. Well, when one battler's got hopelessly high ambitions of being the Fire GL and the other's the latest in the line of lackeys to occupy the position of sun-based Grass GT, there's some heat tolerance there. As the ref wipes the sweat from his brow, he gives the signal, and the battlers unleash the contents of their balls into the overgrown arena: Angus the Snubbull for EK, and Kalypso the Kekleon for Alto.

Spoiler: show
Snubbull (Fairy): Snubbull are proud Pokémon and more susceptible to moves that induce anger. However, they are also resistant to fear-inducing effects. Their hearing is more sensitive than normal, at the expense of being more vulnerable to sound-based status moves, and they have an excellent sense of smell which allows them to track opponents and tell the real clone in a Double Team. Snubbull's biting attacks are 1.1x more powerful.
[Fairy]: Fairy-types are generally pure hearted and gregarious. They prefer natural environments and will fight more enthusiastically in them, but they will not be off put by urban environments. Any attack used by a Fairy-type which manipulates the environment is slightly more effective owing to the magical energies involved and attacks which boost allied Pokémon is slightly more effective at providing a buff. They are immune to the damaging effects of Dragon-typed energy.

Kecleon (Normal): Kecleon can disguise themselves like a chameleon quickly and without using energy, at the cost of a move. However, their stripe remains visible, so they can still be tracked, although it is much harder. Attacks based upon trickery are slightly more effective when used by Kecleon. Their tongue can be used to attack with physical moves quickly from a reasonable distance.
[Normal]: Normal-type Pokémon are able to use support moves to greater effect than other Pokémon, with them being performed slightly quicker and being slightly more potent. Being beings of great balance, they benefit more from the positive effects of weather and other arena affecting moves, but will not suffer as badly from the negative effects. In the ASB, Normal-types take resisted damage from the damaging effects of Ghost-type energy.

And so the Snubbull wastes no time in initiating affairs, dashing forwards with the intent of Playing Rough with his foe! Alas, the Kekmeister has other plans, and charges ahead to meet him, only to whip out his tongue for the Fake Out, with the slight blow being enough to knock the Snubbull off kilter and stop the assault in its tracks! After the slightly dirty assault failed, Angus decides for a ranged option, backing up to put some distance between himself and his foe. But Kalypso wants to keep him close, thank you very fucking much, and dashes in with a Dizzy Punch, aiming for its face, only for her to stumble in the blinding glare of the Dazzling Gleam, the potentially disorienting blow barely shaving the Fairy's left side instead of clonking it right in its ugly mug as the trainer intended!

Both are barely into their first thirds and are good for two.
