Well, it would if it could think. But it can't. It's just a battlefield.

Pff, Armory. Let's go with a classier nickname...Circus Afro.

Start with a Screech, then wait and use Flame Charge. If Armory ever uses Protect, use Double Team.

This was it. This was positively it. The final, ultimate battle in the greatest ASBL tournament in history. A hush had fallen over the Normal field as the battlers stepped somberly to their places. A crowd had gathered, and the anticipation was palpable. All eyes were fixed on the soon-to-be combatants, and every heart throbbed. Now it was time to see who would claim victory and glory for their team, and who would return humbled by defeat.

The referee shot Saraibre Ryu, the representative of the great Guardian Units of Nations, a rather petulant glance and quietly asked her to send out her Pokemon. She nodded tersely, her gaze fixed on her opponent, and sent out her Pokemon: a tall, insect-humanoid hybrid with a shiny red exoskeleton and fluttering, transparent wings crisscrossed with thin veins. The creature snapped his strong, razor-sharp red pincers together, warming himself up as he looked with golden eyes at his opponent and waited.

He did not wait for long. White Knight, Saraibre Ryu's opponent - who, just like his fellows in Team Obscurity, seemed to have come out of nowhere to make himself a contender - sent his Pokemon out quickly. Hopefully it was something capable of standing up to such a foe as Scizor.

A great equine appeared on the field, stamping its dark hooves and glaring at Scizor with eyes the color of a lightning strike. The Zebstrika flicked his jagged tail, sending pale sparks of electricity scattering through the air as if to challenge the crimson bug. Scizor looked unimpressed, and he met Zebstrika's glare unflinchingly. The crowd was relieved - this match gave an advantage to no one, and that meant this battle would no doubt be one for the history books. At a command from the referee, the Trainers called orders and the battle began.

Screech/Double Team ~ Flame Charge/Double Team

Round One

The Zebstrika tossed his head as he heard his temporary Trainer barking out his commands. He most certainly hoped that the human wasn't as poor at battling as he was at nicknaming! Pushing the thought aside, the newly christened Circus Afro opened his jaws. He sucked in a great breath of air and pushed it back out of his lungs. His larynx throbbed in wild, violent convulsions, mangling the cry and turning it into a sound similar to the shrill shriek of metal on metal. Bright blue shockwaves corkscrewed from his jaws, giving the horrid sound a visual representation. Armory the Scizor winced, but could not move aside in time. The noise washed over him like an acid river; then it was over, leaving him feeling rather jelly-legged despite his hard shell.
[Screech: Armory, -2 DEF; Circus Afro, -3% Energy]

Circus Afro hesitated, eyeing his insect enemy warily. He expected the Scizor to be a bit shaken by the Screech attack, but that didn't give Armory any excuse to stand about, waiting! With a snort of impatience, Circus Afro rushed forward across the field, his hooves kicking up gray dust as he gathered speed. Around his white-striped body, flames began to flicker into existence. In seconds his whole body was engulfed in bright orange flames. He kept running, running, running, his flying hooves carrying him straight toward Armory. With a loud crunch, the Zebstrika slammed into his opponent, transferring the flames to his foe and setting him painfully alight. Scizor was knocked backward, sent skidding across the dusty arena floor.
[Flame Charge: Armory, -13% HP; Circus Afro, -6% Energy, +1 SPD]

But Armory was not about to just let his foe beat him about - quite the opposite. He rose slowly, a red aura coalescing around his already-red body. Even his eyes were turned red by the heat of his rage - and his pain. He rushed at Circus Afro, intent on getting revenge on the Electric-type. With a resounding crack, he smacked Circus Afro across his dark head, making Staryu dance before his eyes. Armory did not stop there, however; he kept on battering his enemy until his anger was spent. The red aura petered out and Armory stepped back to a more respectful distance, leaving Circus Afro wincing with pain and shock, his body covered in bruises and scratches.
[Counter: Armory, -9% Energy; Circus Afro, -26% HP]

Now that his brutal barrage was finished, Armory decided to devote himself to less offensive measures. He lifted his claws, and within them flickered little white lights: tiny pieces of his life force. The lights flowed out of his claws, forming a small sphere of pure energy. As Armory concentrated on it, the sphere began to take shape, forming a glowing, life-sized copy of the Scizor. The glow faded, revealing that the doll was dully-colored and lusterless, like he had been formed from dust. But the copy had the movement of a living thing, and both Pokemon knew that it would protect Armory for the duration of its frail life.

Okay Armory, lets get a lock down on this. While you have the protection of that substitute, put up a Light Screen, then follow up with Sandstorm. If he's going to use Thunder Wave, go to Dodge it instead. If Double Team is used, use Double hit.

Rage ~ Sand-Attack

Round Two

Having been injured and outraged by the thrashing Armory had given him, Circus Afro was certainly feeling enraged. He rushed forward, charging across the field and then stopping in front of Armory's substitute. He rose onto his hind legs and thrashed his hooves, battering the unstable doppelganger and crushing it into wisps of white smoke.
[Rage: Sub, -1% HP; Zebstrika, -2% Energy]

Armory was not too concerned with his loss. He lifted his claws, assuring himself a new kind of protection as he created a bright pink barrier in front of himself. The barrier was not impenetrable, but it would take a lot of damage out of most long-distance attacks.
[Light Screen: Zebstrika, -6% Energy]

Circus Afro frowned; that might slow him down. But there was no time to worry. He waited for Armory to begin his attack - the Scizor only had time to lift his claws - before lunging at the Scizor and pivoting so that his back faced Armory. He then kicked out with his back legs, sending dust flying into the insect's eyes. Armory let out a screech, his eyes stinging and his focus lost. He staggered back, glaring daggers at Circus Afro with bloodshot eyes.

Well Armory, I know you can't see too well right now, but use Safeguard, having your eyes closed the entire time to let the tears wash out the sand so you can see again. Then use Sandstorm by spinning around in a circle, again, eyes closed so that your tears can clear the rest of the sand out of them.

Round 3

Circus Afro smirked as Armory closed his stinging eyes resulting from his handiwork the previous round. Determined to cause the metal bug even more pain, he nodded as his trainer ordered him to up his power. That was just what he wanted to do. Sparks jumped across his short black and white fur, giving off a sharp cracking sound as it grew in intensity. A yellow glow emanated from Circus Afro’s stripes, flickering as energy flowed beneath his skin. The glow died out almost as quickly as it appeared, but Armory knew it wasn't gone. No, far from that. The smirk still lingered on the equine’s face as it prepared itself to let loose that torrent of electricity on the bug that hovered in front of him.
[Circus Afro: -7 Energy; +1 SPDEF; Charge]

Closing his eyes, Armory tried to flush the particles of sand away with the tears that built up almost involuntarily against the pain. Keeping in mind what Circus Afro had just done, he raised his arms and clicked his claws a few times. The air shimmered around him and took on a green hue. The light intensified until Armory was encased in a glowing green sphere. Keeping his eyes closed, he was relieved that he wouldn’t have to deal with any internal pain, at least for the time being.
[Armory: -8 Energy; Safeguard for 4 More actions]

Circus Afro growled and stomped his hoof on the ground, obviously agitated that the Scizor would thwart his plan to immobilize him. It didn’t matter though. He could still cause some damage. Gathering the energy he had just stored, the Zebstrika let out a loud cry. His stripes glowed brightly before electricity shot in all directions. Armory winced as the bolts of energy hit his body, coursing through him. He shuddered, but felt the pain dissipate slowly. The Scizor was thankful he had put up the green barrier.
[Circus Afro: -15 Energy| Armory: -14 HP]
(Critical hit rolled a 8863, where rolling 625 or less resulted in a critical hit.)

Armory felt content in his little bubble of status-immunity, but he wasn’t quite finished. His wings began to beat faster and faster, kicking up a great deal of dirt and sand that was already in the arena. He spun on the spot, the grime getting thrown into the air. The sand and dirt glanced off of Armory’s hard skin harmlessly and he allowed himself a content smile.
[Armory: -7 Energy; Sandstorm]

Circus Afro, on the other hand, wasn’t so lucky. He felt himself subject to the same pain Armory had felt before, and closed his eyes to try and get the stinging sand out of them. His body was buffeted hard by the gusts of wind that raged around him, but he managed to remain on his feet. This battle was far from over.
[Circus Afro: -6 HP]

Create a 1% Substitute after the zebra uses his first action, unless that first action is Overheat, then use Roost. Then follow up with Roost if you used Substitute or the electric Zebra is using Overheat a second time. If you used Roost for first action and Overheat is not being used a second time, try doing what you wanted to do first action with Substitute, again, waiting until after his action is done. If Zebstrika creates a Substitute, get rid of it with Rock Smash.

Oh and yes, do it all heavily covered inside your sandstorm to prevent any Sand Attack shenanigans again.

Round Four

As soon as the round began, Circus Afro lay down, his eyes closing and his breathing relaxing. Armory eyed him warily, watching to see what he would do, but the Zebstrika showed no sign of moving. Satisfied that his foe would not provide any sort of threat for the time being, Armory lifted his claws, beginning to focus his energy into another decoy.
[Substitute: Armory, -1% Energy]

However, Circus Afro was, while no accomplished actor, adequate at the art of deception. Having successfully lulled Armory into a sense of security, he sprang up to his hooves and rushed at the Scizor, his hooves flying as they carried him across the dusty field. Electricity sparked in his mane and fizzled on through the rest of his muscular body, only to spread right to Armory as he slammed into the latter. Armory staggered backward, his muscles tingling and numb from the jolt. He shook his head to clear it, glaring furiously at Circus Afro.
[Spark: Armory, -16% HP; Circus Afro, -12% Energy]

Circus Afro was not about to let up; he wanted to push his advantage to the limits. He backed up a few steps to get a running start before charging again, flames flaring out across his body. Armory looked up and groaned at the sight of the zebra rushing him for a second time. With the crackling of flames and a sickening crunch, Circus Afro slammed into Armory. Flames rippled across Armory's exoskeleton, singing his beautiful red body.
[Flame Charge: Armory, -13% HP; Circus Afro, -6% Energy, +1 SPD]

Armory was positively seething with fury by now, but he had been given orders and there was precious little he could do about his frustration. Glaring bitterly at Circus Afro, he began to breathe deeply, attempting to relax. His wings stopped fluttering and his body began to glow with a soft blue hue. His wounds began to mend, and a great measure of strength returned to his body. Cleansed of many aches and pains, Armory began to flutter his wings once more, ready for the next round.
[Roost: Armory, +20% HP; -8% Energy]

Round Five

As the referee signaled the beginning of the final round, a hush fell over the crowd. Immediately Saraibre Ryu and White Knight tensed, feeling the pressure to perform grow stronger than ever. With varying degrees of confidence, they called out their last orders.

Armory lifted his arms over his chest in a protective gesture. His eyes flashed green, and he tensed his legs in readiness for Circus Afro's attacks. He was not going to lose this battle.
[Detect: Armory, -8% Energy]

Circus Afro was much less certain. He found Armory's glare unsettling, and he was aware not only of his current fatigue but also how much his next attack would take out of him. However, he knew that he would be able to render Armory, if not unconscious, then at least infirmed. He needed to do some damage and this was the way. He opened his jaws, feeling heat rising in his body like his guts had become some enormous blaze; every breath stirred it like a bellows. With a mighty exhalation he released the flame, sending a swirling, white-spangled column of glowing red fire. The blaze rippled across the battlefield, throwing up dust and smoke all across the arena. Armory was quickly swallowed up in the conflagration.
[Overheat: Circus Afro, -22% Energy]

Once Circus Afro could sustain the fire no longer he snapped his jaws shut. Smoke and dust still obscured the battlefield, but Circus Afro didn't need to see his opponent to know that the Scizor was at least temporarily down for the count. He most likely should have waited to see, but at this point he seemed doomed to lose and he was so tired, anyway. Besides, that blast could have taken anyone down. Closing his eyes, Circus Afro lay down, hoping to restore a little bit of health at the last minute. His breathing relaxed, and he fell into a deep slumber.
[Rest: Circus Afro, +20% HP, -8% Energy]

However, that blast of flames had not, as Circus Afro expected, crippled Armory. Indeed, the Scizor wasn't even harmed. Unseen among the dazzling flames, Armory had dodged through the blaze, avoiding the damaging flames with astonishing grace, fluid in every movement, and his movement never stopped. When the flames at last had ceased, he waited at the fringe of the smoke, his wings beating double-time to clear the air about him. He watched for his opportunity, finding it as Circus Afro lay down to sleep. As soon as his chance came he lunged, his claws wide open, their sharp tips flashing with pale green energy. The crowd roared with gleeful surprise as Armory ran out of the smoke, scuffed red shell glinting in the sunlight, and slashed his claws down Circus Afro's side. The Zebstrika let out a grunt of shock and pain, but he did not wake up, despite the two new gashes on his side.
[X-Scissor: Armory, -7% Energy; Circus Afro, -18% HP]

With that final attack, the referee called a halt to the battle. She evaluated both Pokemon - from the still-snoring Circus Afro to the smug Armory, before declaring that they had a winner. Silence followed as the crowd waited to learn who would be the champion of this tournament...

"Saraibre Ryu is the winner!"
