    In the far reaches of F&G, well beyond the region that the mods normally bothered to patrol lied a cave set into a hill. Remarkably well hidden by the surrounding foliage, it was the sort of place most people wouldn’t even find, let alone have cause to investigate. On this day however, it was quite the hub of activity.

    “I’m sure you’re all wondering why I’ve summoned you all here.” A hooded figure said, addressing the 8 figures assembled there, all wearing similar hooded cloaks to him. The cave was rather dark, helping to obscure the identities of its inhabitants, as well as the décor of the area. Though if one looked hard enough, faint markings of what may once have been a pentagram could be identified on the floor.

    “You’re damn right I am!” One of the assembled figures shouted. “You said you were done with me after that amplifier thing!”

    “While I may have said something to that effect,” the main hooded figure began, steepling his fingers, “I also know that your particular motivation makes you very intent to please.” The hooded figure who’d spoken out grunted at this comment, but was otherwise silent. The main hooded figure apparently took this silence as his cue to continue.

    “The reason I have called you all here is that I have some particular goals for these forums, Fun and Games in particular. The main goal for now is chaos.”

    “I think they’re able to do that by themselves, don’t you think?” A different cloaked figure interrupted with a scoff.

    “Indeed, I still haven’t gotten all the glitter out of my apartment.” Added another. A third figure winced somewhat at these remarks, knowing exactly what they were talking about as well as their own part in instigating the event.

    “While recent events were certainly helpful for my goals, they were unfortunately somewhat mundane as far as events in the section go. My goals require something more substantial. But, in order to achieve this, I am in need of lieutenants.”

    “And that’s why you need us.” One of the figures surmised.

    “That’s why I need one of you.” The main figure corrected. “Each one of you possess particular aspects that would be of aid to my cause, but I need to be sure of your abilities before committing to anything. And so, I’ve decided, what better way to discern your abilities to give instructions and crush your enemies on a Pokémon forum than with a Pokémon battle tournament?” The figure declared with a flourish. “You will fight trough a series of battles until only one remains, and they shall be my lieutenant. Any questions?” The remaining figures were silent. “Very well then, you may leave. Your first opponents and battle locations will be sent out soon.”
    Hello and welcome to MCH's evil tourney to find a commander to fit his rebellion! as the flavor suggests this will be a BMU game using fictionalized versions of bulba users, some of which may not be active anymore.
    My co-host and the MoD for this will be @Lone_Garurumon

    Now let's lay some ground rules shall we?

    1. Use only the provided teams and movesets, failure to do so will result in you being disqualified
    2. We are not responsible for when you fight, set that up yourselves and make certain it's in a time that works for both of you
    3. Send the hosts a replay of the battle so we can confirm who won ourselves. Both players must send the replay.
    4. If it happens there is a tie, keep playing until their isn't.
    5. There is a 2 week deadline for the first 2 rounds, and 1 week for the finals, if you do not submit your replay in by then, we'll have to decide a winner by coin flip and then go from there.
    6. Please keep it civil if you lose, we're all friends here, and all forum rules still apply in the end.
    7. To confirm you've read the rules and agree, please say your favorite BMU game thus far, if you need help there is the archive

    1. All players will be randomly assigned one of eight teams of Pokemon made by myself and MCH, who are hopefully all roughly balanced to each other in terms of power.
    2. Players are to take the team provided in the role PM and put it into Pokemon Showdown. Players are to use exactly these Pokemon in exactly the way that they have been given, failure to do so will result in disqualification. The teams should be formatted in a way that you can simply copy-paste the text from the role PM into the Import/Export section of the teambuilder, but if things go wrong in the process, you may have to create them yourself.
    3. Players will then be randomly assigned into pairs, who will battle each other on Showdown using the Pokemon team provided. Players will have two weeks to organise a time to battle between themselves, using Bulba PMs or perhaps something like Discord is highly recommended. The final round will have a 1-week deadline instead of two.
    4. A tie is not a valid result. If the result is a tie, repeat the battle until it is not, battles must continue until a clear winner is decided.
    5. Once the battle has been won, BOTH players must send a link of the battle replay to both hosts (myself and @ReturnofMCH). If no replays are received by the deadline, the winner shall be determined by coin flip. The only exception to this is if a player can provide the hosts with proof that they have attempted to organise a time with their opponent, but that their opponent has not responded. If both players attempted to organise but just never did it, the coin flip method will be used.
    6. The winners will then be paired up for round two, and again for round three. The overall winner of the tournament is the winner of the final battle.

    Now that the rules are out of the way, let's get to sign ups!

    Players:
    1. Max1996
    2. @ExLight

    Role PMs have been sent, please confirm when recieved!

    Waiting in their rooms, the 8 figures each prepared for their battles in their own ways, thinking over their strategies, amping their Pokemon up, and other general prep-work. Everyone who gathered for the tournament had their own motives, known only to them and no one else, each one hoped they would get the job, for being a general in an evil army is an important part of any evil overlord's uprising after all. When the time came, they would have to check their inboxes to see brackets and who they were going against. Seeing as how the 8 contestants didn't know who else singed up, this should be interesting...

    All role PMs have been distributed, please enter the teams into Showdown exactly as they have been

    Excellent AE thank you. And with that, Round 1 can begin.


    A little after midnight, the messages they were waiting for appeared in their inboxes.
    "The matchups for the first round are as follows. Proceed to your assigned destinations as soon as possible. Engage your opponent in battle as soon as possible. Be careful not to arouse too much attention. Remember to wear your Evil Cloaks."
    The figures made their various ways out of their rooms and towards their assigned locations in RM. Some with apprehension, some with malicious glee, but all with one goal in their minds: Victory.


    All role PMs have been distributed, please enter the teams into Showdown exactly as they have been provided.
    It is now Round 1. Round 1 will end in 2 weeks time, or once all replays have been submitted, whichever comes first.
    All players are responsible for organising their own times to battle.

    So sorry for the delay everybody, I went to sleep before update time and then my internet was being a butt.

    Disclaimer: Battles portrayed in the flavour text are for entertainment value only, moves or abilities portrayed in the flavour text are not necessarily those possessed by the Pokemon in the teams.

    The battles raged fierce and fast; no member of the tournament eager to draw undue attention to themselves with protracted affairs.
    In the forested outskirts of RM, the first battle raged to its finish, a vicious three-headed dragon clashing with a blue-green titan.

    “Now Mecha! Ice Punch!” the figure behind the Golurk commanded, prompting it to charge at Hydreigon, fists cloaked in a freezing energy. Hydreigon deftly dodged the punches however, weaving behind Mecha.

    “Ice Fang!” its trainer commanded. Grabbing into the points on Mecha’s shoulders with its smaller side heads, Hydreigon sank the blue, glowing fangs of its central head into Mecha’s neck, who cried out in pain.

    “Gyro Ball!” Powering through the pain, Mecha began to rotate on its axis, rapidly building up speed. Hydreigon’s teeth quickly lost purchase, eventually being thrown off the Golurk by the centrifugal force. Seizing the opportunity, Mecha threw its arms out into a T-pose, its fists glowing in orange energy that weaved together into a ring around its body, and slammed into Hydreigon.

    “Hydro Pump!” Hydreigon took aim at Mecha with all three heads, the Golurk off-balance briefly as it attempted to right itself after its spin. Barely seconds after re-obtaining its bearings however, the blue spheres that had been gathering in Hydreigon’s mouths exploded into a torrent of water, blasting Mecha full-force. Bringing its arms up in front of its face, Mecha struggled against the flow, attempting to gain ground, its eyes and markings slowly dimming as it weakened.

    “You’ll never make it like that Mecha!” its trainer shouted, “You’ll have to slip through with Phantom Force!” Halting its advance, its light dimming ever further, Mecha formed a shadowy portal behind it and immediately stopped struggling, allowing the water pressure to force it straight into the portal, which promptly closed. Hydreigon closed all three mouths and looked around in almost all directions at once alongside its trainer. A few moments later, Mecha fell from another portal, formed above its former position. But it wasn’t an attack. Mecha simply fell, apparently having lost consciousness across dimensions. As Mecha lay on the ground, motionless, its trainer fell to her knees. Her last Pokemon having fallen, she had no chance to continue.

    “No…” She muttered under her breath. “Space… Feenie… This was the only thing keeping him away from them…”

    As her opponent watched on, the grin that had spread across his face at his victory began to waver. He’d joined up for kicks and a bit of revenge, but he’d never really thought about the kind of consequences that would create for people. But now, watching the display in front of him…

    “Those were the terms... Fight for him and they'll be ok... But I lost... Now what's going to happen to them...” She continued to mutter to herself, tears forming in her eyes. Her opponent exchanged a sad glance with his Hydreigon, unsure about how to continue, before turning away and walking back to his home, leaving FinalArcadia with her thoughts.

    ***

    “Now Edgeworth, Brave Bird!” The Decidueye flying above the ocean dove towards the Incineroar standing on the docks, its body cloaked in blue flames. Incineroar took the brunt of the attack, but grabbed hold of Edgeworth’s wings and body, locking the owl in its grip.

    “Heat Crash, Khan!” Using Edgeworth’s own momentum against it, Khan twisted itself around to throw Edgeworth into the ground behind it. Striking a brief pose for his audience (which consisted only of his trainer, their opponent, and the Decidueye face-down on the pavement) Khan surrounded its body with flames before dropping onto Edgeworth, bringing its shoulder down hard on the owl’s midsection. Cringing from the pain, Edgeworth kicked out its talon from underneath Khan, raking its claws across its leg. The momentary flinch from Khan at this attack gave Edgeworth the chance to break out from underneath and get away.

    “On top of the mast, Edgeworth! Spirit Shackle!” Taking to the skies, Edgeworth flew towards one of the boats moored nearby and landed on top of the mast as directed. Balancing on a single foot, Edgeworth plucked an arrow from its wing with one hand, and drew one of its vines into a bowstring with the other. Closing one eye for better aim, Edgeworth pulled back its arrow, locked onto its target, and let loose. Khan sidestepped the arrow, which embedded itself firmly in the ground, right through Kahn’s shadow.

    “Khan, we can’t just let it keep sniping at you like that!” Khan’s trainer called. “You’ll have to get on the boat and fight it! We’ll… Deal with the damages later.” Khan nodded and dashed towards the boat. Or, well, it would have, if it wasn’t firmly rooted to the spot, unable to move from the arrow pinning its shadow in place. Flashing a grin from beneath their hood, Edgeworth’s trainer raised her hand, revealing a shining band around her wrist.

    “The raw power of a spectre!” She declared. Striking a series of poses, the band on her wrist began to glow with a purple energy, which, at the end of her dance, flowed through the air and into Edgeworth. Floating slightly above the mast as it was bathed in the purple energy, Edgeworth flared its wings, shaking loose over a dozen arrows, which formed an arc above its head.

    “Death by a thousand cuts! SINISTER ARROW RAID!” Edgeworth threw its wings forward, sending the rain of arrows down towards Khan, before diving alongside them.

    “Darkest Lariat!” Khan’s trainer shouted, sweating bullets. Khan began spinning in place, ever faster as it gradually grew into a small cyclone of dark energy. As the arrows reached their target, several were deflected by the force of the spin, flying in all directions. Some, however, struck true, embedding themselves in the spinning tiger. The instant Edgeworth entered range for the final blow of the attack, Khan brought its arm upwards, slamming its forearm into Edgeworth’s neck, causing a mighty explosion as the two attacks connected. As the dust cleared, both Pokemon could be seen, incredibly shaky on their feet. A few moments later, Edgeworth collapsed forward, as Khan remained, hands on its knees.

    “Oh, thank god.” Khan’s trainer said as he let out a sigh of relief. A beam of red light struck Edgeworth. He looked over to see his opponent returning the Pokemon to its nest ball, the wind from the explosion having blown her hood off of her head.

    Max1996 has lost their battle!
    Hi there Max1996, you are Doctor Floptopus!





    You’re a local doctor for the Fun and Games section, ensuring that nobody is ever seriously harmed. You’ve made several appearances over the course of the BMU, typically when somebody is in need of medical attention for one reason or another.

    You decided to join up with MCH out of an odd sense of compassion. You hate seeing the injured people coming through your hospital, particularly after MCH’s last endeavour. You figure you couldn’t stop him on your own, but if you’re able to get by his side, you could hopefully twist things to minimise harm to others.

    “Flop?” He said. “But, why? You’ve been an upstanding user for years. Why this?”

    “Oh, come off it.” She snapped back. “You know as well as I do that people always wind up hurt throughout these things. I can’t do anything from the outside except fix people after they’ve been hurt. I couldn’t do anything to stop it beforehand unless I did this.” She then proceeded to narrow her eyes at her opponent. “But what about you?” She asked. “Don’t think I can’t tell. This is going to wind up with people getting hurt and you could stop this before it even starts. Go ahead, tell me I'm wrong." Her opponent was silent. "You’re putting a lot of people in danger for… Whatever this is. So I suggest you take a good long think about what you’re doing here.” Flop said as she turned and walked away, leaving her opponent behind. Her opponent crossed his arms, it was true that he was taking a risk, but it'd be worth it for the payoff, right?

    Meanwhile, in the RM warehouse district, a Galvantula crawled along the walls of the alleyways between warehouses, dodging globs of poison launched at it by an Alolan Muk on the ground.

    “Peter, Discharge!” Electricity sparked across the Galvantula’s fuzz for a moment before bolts of lightning shot off in all directions, lighting up the area. Shifting its amorphous body from side-to-side, Alolan Muk evaded most bolts, but received a few glancing blows.

    “Sludge Wave, Maxim!” The Alolan Muk threw its arms into the air before slamming them down onto the ground, sending a torrent of purple poison flying towards Peter, who simply leapt across to the wall on the other side of the alley.

    “Leech Life!” Peter leapt from the wall on top of Maxim and sunk its fangs deep into its body, causing Maxim to roar in pain.

    “Brutal Swing!” Bucking the spider off of its back, Maxim turned to face Peter, who had wound up on the ground, and swung its arms draped in black energy into Peter’s body, sending it flying. “Now, follow with Moonblast!” As Maxim extended its hand outward, a bright pink sphere formed in its palm before being launched towards the prone form of Peter, striking true.

    “Bug Buzz, Peter!” Shaking its body, peter released several green soundwaves which stuck Maxim, causing it to cover its head in pain. “Quick, Bounce!” Peter sprung into the air. At the apex of its jump, it angled itself downwards, pointing its front legs straight down, dropping directly towards Maxim.

    “Come on Maxim, Fire Blast!” Shaking off the grogginess from the Bug Buzz, Maxim turned its face upwards toward the electrical spider dropping down on it. Building a ball of fire in its mouth, it released the attack moments before Peter’s impact in a brilliant blast of flame. As the flame cleared, all that remained was Maxim “standing” triumphant next to a charred Galvantula.

    “Well,” Maxim’s trainer said, “Looks like you just got trolled pretty hard there.”

    “Dammit.” His opponent said. “No how am I gonna start trouble?”

    “Well, I got a few ideas.”

    “How am I gonna start trouble without instantly getting caught.” Peter’s trainer said with a glare.

    “Oh, I’m sure there’s still plenty of ways.” Maxim’s trainer said, shrugging as he walked off with Maxim in tow. “Try to have some fun figuring them out, won’t you?”

    “Hmph. Weirdo.” Peter’s trainer said as she returned him to his Net Ball. “Buuuuut… Maybe a useful weirdo…”

    Hi there Acrobatic Crobat, you are HumanDawn!

    A famed mafia player from an age long past, you are very skilled, but these days you have retired. That being said, nothing gets that itch better than some mayhem, and what better way to do it than help MCH start a war against the F&G mods? With your trusty team, your strategic mind, and your love for games like Pokemon and Fire Emblem, nothing can stop you from getting that General role!

    Your Pokemon are themed off games you played, in this case Mafia/Werewolf, Fire Emblem Fates, and Marvel's Spider Man for PS4.

    “Spike, Dragon Rush!” The dark green Dragonite dived towards its opponent in the wasteland that was the dead threads of the Fun and Games section, not having seen activity in months. Spike’s tail glowed a deep royal blue as it swung towards the Roserade standing before it.

    “Toxic, Rose!” The Roserade front-flipped as the tail passed underneath it. Landing on its hands, Rose kicked backwards with its foot, glowing a bright purple. Jamming the foot into Spike’s side, a purple patch blossoming around the impact site.

    “Fire Punch!” Whirling around, Spike punched Rose in the face, its fist wrapped in flames.

    “Dazzling Gleam!” Striking a pose, a brilliant light flashed from its body, staggering and blinding Spike. “Follow up! Petal Dance!” Shaking its bouquet hands like maracas a few times, red and blue petals were shook loose and hung in the air around Rose. It then began to pirouette, spinning faster and faster around its axis, whipping the petals in the air – as well as additional petals flying out from its bouquets the entire time – into a cyclone of red and blue. Leaping forwards, Rose drew the cyclone towards Spike, buffeting the Dragonite over and over with petals. Eventually, the cyclone died down, the petals slowly falling to the ground. Rose could be seen among the petals, teetering slightly as she had become dizzy from spinning too much.

    “Sky Drop, Spike!” Seizing the opportunity, Spike flew over and grabbed Rose under the arms before soaring high into the air. At the apex of its flight, Spike performed a small loop and dived.

    “Rose, break out! Venoshock!” Gathering its senses, Rose placed its bouquets on Spike’s sides and released a thick purple liquid. As the liquid soaked into Spike’s skin, it spread and covered the purple spot that had appeared and steadily grown since Rose had poisoned it. Spike roared in pain and cringed such that it released its grip on Rose and lost tension in its wings, causing it to spiral into freefall rather than controlled descent. With neither one able to right themselves, due to either too much pain or a complete lack of wings, both impacted the ground with great force. As the dust cleared, both combatants struggled to their feet, neither one willing to give up the battle just yet.

    “Fire Punch!” Spike rushed forward, both fists wrapped in flame.

    “Protect!” Bringing its arms in front of its face, Rose summoned a bright green dome around itself. Spike pounded on the dome over and over with its blazing fists. Rose struggled to maintain the barrier; effort obvious on its face. Spike raised both flaming fists above its head together, intent to shatter the barrier keeping it from its opponent, before all focus faded from its eyes completely. Flames on its fists going out, Spike closed its eyes and slumped forward onto the barrier, having succumbed to the poison.

    “Damn it!” Spike’s trainer said, punching the side of one of the abandoned buildings in frustration. “This was my chance!”

    “Now, now, Soulmaster,” His opponent said, “Complaining is unbecoming.”

    Chibighost has lost their battle!
    Hi there, Chibighost, you are Soulmaster!





    A long-time user of both TWR and the forums as a whole, your first appearance in the BMU was a bit part during TWR Season ’17 Mafia, where you were one of the people manipulating the outbreak of the Elieson Virus. You also appeared at the end of Prank War Mafia, about to spray every assembled user with water from the fountain. But was this really as innocent as it appeared..?

    You’ve decided to join up with MCH out of a twisted sense of nostalgia. You’re not particularly happy with the way TWR has developed, and would like to see it shift back into something closer to what you remember. Something you hope to accomplish by MCH’s side.

    “You’re part of the problem, you know!” Soulmaster whirled on his opponent. “You’ve been here almost as long as I have! You’ve let this happen!”

    “Let me tell you a little secret, Soulmaster.” His opponent said, nonchalantly returning Rose to her Heal Ball. “First off, if I’ve let this place change in a way you don’t like, then so have you, because I’ve not seen you make many efforts to stop things either.” Soulmaster crossed his arms and looked away. “Secondly, I really don’t care about your problems. Constant change is a goal for people like me, our reason for being. I’m here for pretty much the exact opposite reason as you, so, again, don’t expect me to care. Ciao!” She said, waving back as she walked back to the populated areas.

    ***

    There was no time for rest once the battles had been completed. Not intending to waste time and allow any sore losers to potentially blow the whistle on the entire arrangement, the next round had been scheduled for the very next night. The remaining competitors received their messages as before, and went on for Round 2.

    THE RESULTS ARE IN!

    The matchups for Round 2 are:
    @Snowy vs @ExLight
    @jdthebud vs @prog rocker

    It is now Round 2. Round 2 will end in 2 weeks time, or once all replays have been submitted, whichever comes first.
    All players are responsible for organising their own times to battle.

    Back at the harbour a Lopunny leapt high into the air towards a Charizard.

    “Brutal Swing, Rabbit!” As it reached level with Charizard, the Lopunny began to spin rapidly, the fluff on its ears wrapped in a dark energy as they rose into a T-shape and slammed into Charizard.

    “Burse, Dragon Claw!” Recovering from the blows, Charizard dived downwards in pursuit of Rabbit, as it had already begun its descent from the drop. As Rabbit landed on the docks, Burse caught up and raked its green glowing claws across the Lopunny’s face. “Brick Break!” Raising its other arm in the air, Burse’s fist glowed white and brought it down on the still recoiling Rabbit’s head.

    “Back up! Shadow Ball!” Forming a dark sphere of crackling energy between its hands and pushing it forward into Burse’s chest, Rabbit then quickly strode backwards in an attempt to create some distance.

    “Chase it down! Flamethrower!” Burse opened its mouth and spewed a stream of flame towards Rabbit.

    “Jump!” Rabbit’s trainer shouted, and their Pokemon responded by leaping high into the air. “I’d prefer not to blow this surprise before the last round,” they muttered to themselves, pulling something out from their cloak, “and it’s especially risky in a match like this, but it looks like I’m going to need it to win...” The trainer held aloft a small wand with a rainbow coloured gem embedded in the tip, the gem glowing with a pink energy. “Untouchable agility! Unstoppable kicks!” They proclaimed. The pink energy from the wand lanced through the air and into a cream stone containing a swirl of multiple shades of brown embedded in a belt, hanging loosely around Rabbit’s waist, as it flipped at the apex of its jump. “Rabbit! It’s time to mega evolve!” From the stone, large bundles of off-white energy, shaped like balls of fluff began to sprout over Rabbit’s body, quickly obscuring the Lopunny from view entirely. After a few moments, the energy popped and revealed Rabbit striking a midair pose, having transformed into the Normal and Fighting Type Mega Lopunny. “High Jump Kick!” Angling itself through the air, Rabbit extended its leg and dropped straight down towards Burse slamming its heel into Burse’s head. “Return!” Pivoting on its toes as it landed, Rabbit spun around and landed another hard kick into Burse’s midsection, sending it stumbling back.

    “Fire Spin, Burse!” Burse exhaled a stream of fire at Rabbit’s feet that erupted into a small cyclone of flame that encircled Rabbit and trapped it in place. Breathing heavily, Burse happily took the moment of reprieve that the Fire Spin had afforded. “Into the air, Burse!” Burse spread its wings, and rocketed skyward with a single mighty flap.

    “Jumping Thunder Punch!” Rabbit once again leapt vertically into the air and out of the Fire Spin. Its fist began to crackle with electricity as it shot upward.

    “Air Slash!” Burse raised its claw to the sky, before slashing the air and creating a bright blue wave that tore through the air and into Rabbit. Its momentum lost from the impact; Rabbit began to fall towards the ground. “Flamethrower!” Burse shot a stream of flame from its mouth at the descending Rabbit. As Rabbit landed on the ground and readied its legs for another leap, its was impacted with the full force of the Flamethrower. Rocketing upwards, Rabbit burst from the flames. However, as it drew level with Burse, its eyes had glazed over, pushed past its limit by the fire it had leapt through. “Brick Break!” Burse once more slammed its whit glowing fist into Rabbit’s head, sending it plummeting back down into the pavement. Rabbit lied on the ground motionless for a moment, before the last of its strength left it and its mega evolved form popped away in a puff of fluff.

    “Well, well, well,” Rabbit’s trainer said, “I’d like to say that this was unexpected, but honestly things were rather set by the time we’d reached our last Pokemon. Though I must say, I never expected to see you of all people participating.”

    “Wha- Does everyone here know who I am!?” Burse’s trainer shouted.

    “Hmmm, I’m willing to bet at least a few.”

    “Well, I guess they were going to find out sooner or later once I win.” He mused.

    “Oho! Confident.”

    “Well, if you think you’re gonna lose, then you already have. Buuuuuuuuut… If you know who I am, then the least you could do is give me your name in return.”

    “Nice try.” Rabbit’s trainer said, chuckling. “I’m not that dumb. Anyway, this should be interesting to watch. Farewell.” They turned and walked away.

    Meanwhile, another battle raged in the warehouse district.

    “Dual Chop Sceptile!” Sceptile lunged forward towards the blue Bisharp, slamming both fists into its chest.

    “Canas, Metal Claw!” Blades on its body glowing white, Bisharp spun on its toes and slashed Sceptile multiple times.

    “X-Scissor!” Extending the blades on its wrists, Sceptile slashed upwards with both blades in a cross shape. “Now Leaf Blade!”

    “Night Slash!” The blades on both sets of wrists extended and glowed green and black respectively. Each Pokemon swung several times, only to be cleanly blocked by the other. “Iron Head!” Pushing Sceptile’s arms apart to create an opening, Canas pulled its head back, the blade on its head glowing white.

    “Detect!” A twinkle in its eye, Sceptile pulled back from Canas and neatly swayed to the side as Canas brought its head forward. “Focus Blast!” Sceptile opened its hand and gathered a bundle of blue energy in its palm. Coming back in from the dodge, it drove its hand, and by extension the attack, deep into Canas’ chest. Canas’ eyes bulged in pain as it stumbled backwards.

    “Crap…” Canas’ trainer muttered. “There’s no way we’re making this.” Coming to a conclusion in their head, they gave their command. “Only one thing for it Canas! Guillotine!” Canas extended the blades on its wrists to a colossal size and swung them at Sceptile in a pincer-like motion.

    “Down!” Sceptile immediately dove to the floor, neatly ducking underneath the blades. “Low Sweep!” Surging forward on all fours, Sceptile lunged at Canas and swept its tail through its legs, knocking it down. “Dragon Pulse!” Getting up to stand over Canas, Sceptile opened its mouth and blasted a beam of red and blue energy, completely preventing any kind of recovery. After a few moments, a short chuckle sounded through the area, steadily growing louder until the area was filled with a raucous laughter.

    “Shhh- What are you doing be quiet!” Sceptile’s trainer said. “Someone’s going to hear us.”

    “Dude, if no-one came running when our Pokemon were beating the crap out of each other, they’re not gonna care now.” He recalled Canas and walked over to Sceptile’s trainer and placed his arm around his shoulder. “You did great, man. I really thought I was gonna win for a while there but you pulled through. You’re donna do great, real force of anarchy.”

    “Aheh, yeeeaaah…” Sceptile’s trainer said, edging away. “I should get going. Gotta get rested up for the last round, you know?”

    “Oh yeah, sure go ahead.” Canas’ trainer watched as Sceptile’s left to head back home.

    Hi there, Contrainer, you are Elieson!



    You've appeared in the BMU multiple times, mostly as a villain via the Elieson virus, and despite becoming staff, you decided you want Bulba all to yourself. As such, you joined MCH in order to further your own goals as a starscream (if you don't know what that is, look it up on Tvtropes or watch Transformers) and plan to use his corrupted state to do so.
    Thanks to your other endevours on the Fire Emblem fansite Serenes Forest and a speedrunner of the game Lufia II's bonus mode The Anicent Cave, you have your pokemon themed around as such plus a callback to your most infamous role in a Bulba game to boot.

    The next night, although most participants were expecting to be cut off from the tournament entirely, 6 users were surprised to see messages in their inbox.
    "Greetings, I trust you all are well? I invite you all to The Cave for the final round of this tournament to usher in my true lieutenant. I advise you all to attend."
    Uncertain as to the true cause for the summons, all participants involved made their way to the hidden cave to spectate, or alternately participate in, the final match if the tournament.

    It's time for the final round!
    @ExLight vs @prog rocker
    FIGHT!

    It is now Round 3. Round 3 will end in one week, or once the battle's replays have been submitted, whichever comes first.
    The players are responsible for organising their own time to battle.

    That night, in the hidden cave nestled in the hill, all six eliminated contestants, as well as ReturnofMCH himself, were assembled to watch the final match of the tournament.

    “Friends. By hour’s end we shall have witnessed the ascension of my lieutenant, the winner of this final match between these two.” MCH, in his Evil Cloak as was usual these days, gestured to the two people standing on either side of the particularly large room of the cave. “I suggest you stand back.” The two competitors stared each other down briefly, Doctor Floptopus scoffing on the sidelines as she recognised the user she’d lost to in the first round.

    “Sorry, but I’m not going to lose here.” One of the trainers said.
    “That’s funny.” The other responded. “Because neither am I.” The pair produced the Pokeballs and released their first Pokemon, a Hydreigon and Charizard respectively.

    “Hydreigon, start with Hydro Pump!” Hydreigon opened all three mouths and launched a torrent of water from each.

    “Dragon Claw, Burse!” Charizard shot sideways, avoiding the unwieldy blast of water, before shifting to charge straight towards Hydreigon.

    “Crunch!” Hydreigon clamped its two side-heads down on Burse’s shoulders as it raked its green glowing claws across Hydreigon’s chest. Hydreigon then sunk its fangs deep into Burse’s neck, causing it to cry out in pain.

    “Throw it off, Burse! Dragon Spin!” Burse arced its back and beat its wings violently, loosening Hydreigon’s grip to the point that it was easily dislodged from the Charizard’s back. Burse then covered its claws in the same green energy as before, and spun on its axis with its arms extended, striking Hydreigon behind it multiple times, coming out of the spin facing its opponent.

    “Brutal Swing!” Hydreigon’s trainer called out. Hydreigon’s two side-necks glowed with a dark energy as it recovered and bashed the heads against Burse over and over.

    “Now’s your chance! Focus Blast!” Taking the blows as well as it was able, Burse placed its hands in front of itself, palms facing outward. Hydreigon’s six eyes widened as it saw the bundle of blue energy shining mere centimetres from its chest.

    “Get out of there!” Its trainer shouted, moments too late as the energy burst forth in a mighty explosion, sending Hydreigon hurtling backwards.

    “Follow it up Burse! Flamethrower!” Burse opened its maw and unleashed a powerful blast of flame.

    “Hydro Pump!” Hydreigon likewise opened its three mouths and unleashed a torrent of water. The two attacks met in the middle between the combatants, and though Hydro Pump held the elemental advantage, Hydreigon’s greatly weakened state meant that the blast didn’t have the power it should have. Indeed, the Hydro Pump quickly withered to little more than a trickle which was quickly consumed by the Flamethrower, enveloping Hydreigon. When the flames died, Hydreigon laid on the ground, unconscious. Its trainer silently returned it to its Dusk Ball. He then produced a Nest Ball and a Premier Ball. Contemplating the balls in his hands for a few moments, he weighed up his choices.

    “This one probably be the obvious answer, but they’re also my ace in the hole. The other sounds like it’d be a dumb idea, but they do have options, and keeping my ace in reserve could be a good idea.”

    Coming to his decision, he put the Premier Ball away and threw the Nest Ball into battle.

    “Sceptile! It’s your turn!” The green reptilian Pokmon burst forth from the ball to stand before its opponent.

    “Sceptile?” Burse’s trainer wondered. “Against Charizard?” He then directed his next comments towards Burse. “Keep your distance Burse! He’s gotta have some tricks!”

    “Now, onto the ceiling!” Dashing over to the side of the cave they were battling in, Sceptile quickly began to scale the walls and cling to the ceiling, scuttling along on all fours.

    “Flamethrower!” Burse angled his view towards Sceptile and launched a stream of flames to the ceiling. Scuttling quickly in and around the stalactites, Sceptile handily avoided the vast majority of the flame.

    “Dragon Pulse!” Continuing to duck in and out of the stalactites, Sceptile fired several quick blue and red beams from its mouth at Burse from various different points, popping in and out at random. Burse put in his best efforts to avoid the beams, but still took quite a substantial number of blows. Focusing more on evasion and retaliation with their own Flamethrowers than really paying attention to any patterns in the shots, neither Burse nor his trainer realised that Sceptile was steadily moving to be directly above Burse. “Now! Rock Slide!” Finally registering where Sceptile was for the first time, Burse looked up in shock as Sceptile drove its claws into the base of the stalactites in the ceiling, cracks quickly spreading around the spikes.

    “Move!” Moments too late, Burse tried to dive out of the way, only to be crushed by the falling rock from the ceiling. Having leapt from the ceiling as the rocks began to fall, Sceptile landed on the ground a short distance from the rubble. Its trainer reached up under the hood of his cloak, above the brim of the cap he was wearing underneath.

    “The swift striker of the jungle! Sceptile, let’s mega evolve!” Bright pink energy shot forth from beneath the hood and into a marble-like stone attached to an armband that Sceptile was wearing. Bright green flurries of energy resembling leaves began swirling around Sceptile’s form, as it began its mega evolution, the pair apparently unwilling to take chances with their final attack. The energy scattered as the transformation completed, and Sceptile stood before them as a Mega Sceptile. Wasting no time, its trainer called out the next attack. “Time for Frenzy Plant!” Sceptile raised its hands to the sky before bringing them down onto the ground, causing a series of gigantic, thorned vines to sprout from the ground around the pile of rubble which contained Burse, just as it was starting to shake. Burse’s claw and head shot forth from the rubble. Looking around at the vines about to slam into him, Burse simply closed his eyes and awaited the smashing. The vines then crashed into the rubble, reducing much of it to dust and smaller chunks as Burse simply lay in the rubble, unconscious. A red beam of light struck the Charizard and returned him to his trainer’s Poke Ball.

    “Let’s see, its tail’s way too heavy to go crawling along the ceilings anymore, so I shouldn’t have to worry about more rock slides. It’s half Dragon-Type now, so it’s not weak to fire anymore, but he still sent a Sceptile in against a Charizard. He must have an ace he’s trying to hold back. Means I should probably save mine, too.”

    Burse’s trainer then produced a Dusk Ball covered in smoke ball seals.

    “Khan! Time for your entrance!” The ball exploded into a mass of darkness and smoke, with a glowing light in the centre. The smoke was quickly broken away however as the creature inside broke into a quick spin and finishing with a pose, roaring. Khan the Incineroar had showboated his way onto the scene. Taking note of the fact that he actually had a true audience now, as opposed to his last two battles with only his opponents for spectators, Khan performed another pose and a roar, letting out his pent-up energy. “OK Khan, calm down. Remember this is a battle.” Khan glanced over to the opposing side of the field, saw his opponent and grinned. “Let’s start with a Flame Charge!” Khan roared as his belt of flames grew to cover his entire body, and then charged forward at Sceptile.

    “Detect!” Sceptile’s eye glinted as it waited until the very last moment before stepping to the side in a 180-degree turn, causing Khan to completely miss the mark and overshoot, needing to grind to a halt as he shot past. “Now! Leaf Blade!” Charging towards Khan, whose back was turned, the leaves on Sceptile’s right wrist extended into a glowing green blade.

    “Grab it!” Spinning on his heel, Khan grabbed the Leaf Blade in his hand as Sceptile brought it down on him, wincing as the blade dug into his hand. “Now take your Revenge!” Red energy began to rise from Khan’s body as he pulled on Sceptile’s blade to throw it off balance and make it lurch forward. Khan then brought his other elbow down on Sceptile’s back, knocking the wind out of it.

    “Focus Blast!” Sceptile gathered its strength and formed a bright blue sphere of energy in its palm and drove it upwards into Khan’s stomach. Khan’s grip on Sceptile loosened, allowing it to back away as Khan stumbled back clutching his gut.

    “Fire Punch!” Khan powered through the pain and swiped forward with its flaming fist.

    “Jump back!” Sceptile leapt backwards as Khan’s punch drew close, resulting in merely a grazing blow by the flames. The Pokemon then stared at each other from opposite ends of the battlefield, both breathing heavily. Khan’s trainer pulled back the sleeve of his cloak to reveal a red and black bracelt on his wrist.

    “Khan! It’s time for the showstopper! Go!” Charging forward, Khan ducked under a swipe from Sceptile and spun on his axis in a Darkest Lariat, striking multiple times. On the final hit, Khan grabbed Sceptile by its neck and flipped it over his head and slammed it to the ground. Khan’s trainer performed the prerequisite pattern of poses to power a Dark-Type Z-Move, and his bracelet glowed with black energy that arced into Khan. “A stunning performance! Malicious Moonsault!” Khan roared and pointed skywards, causing an orange wrestling ring to burst from the ground beneath their feet. Khan then jumped onto the turnbuckle and leapt skywards. Khan flipped a few times in the air, surrounding himself with flames, before plummeting spreadeagle towards Sceptile. Sceptile groggily raised its head, only for its eyes to bulge as it saw the flaming tiger seconds from slamming into it. A mighty explosion rocked the cave once Khan impacted the ring. Everything was silent for a few moments, until the dust settled and Khan could be seen standing triumphant over Scetile, its Mega Evolved form having dissipated. Khan roared and struck a pose, and though a few retained their general distaste for the events underway, the majority of the audience couldn’t help but cheer and applaud the charismatic tiger. Even MCH couldn’t resist a short clap. As Sceptile was returned to its Nest Ball and Khan returned to his side of the field, his trainer could see that he was breathing incredibly hard, having clearly burned through most of his energy.

    “He's really beat up… Maybe I should give him a rest and keep him in reserve, just in case…”

    “Greninja, your turn!”

    “Reserve against a Greninja? Yeah, that’s not gonna happen.”

    “Ok Greninja, start strong with Aerial Ace!” Greninja charged forward, a blade of water formed in its hand.

    “Stay in the game with a Drain Punch!” Khan readied himself, a bright green swirl forming on his fist. As Greninja approached, Khan ducked down and swiped with an uppercut driving its fist deep into the wooden log in front of it. “Wait, what?”

    “Waterfall!” Greninja then dropped from the ceiling, wrapped in water, as it drove its feet into the back of Khan’s neck. Khan’s eyes glazed over as it collapsed in a heap.

    “Damn Substitute…” Khan’s trainer muttered as he returned him to his ball. His attention was drawn upward however, as Greninja, still in the air after jumping off of Khan, had become surrounded by a veil of water. “Wait… Is that?” Greninja landed on the ground and threw its arms out, scattering the water as its trainer made the same motion. Greninja now had a new form after exiting this veil, adopting visual traits of its trainer, as well as a gigantic water shuriken on its back. “I knew it…” He then called out to his opponent. “Well Max, certainly didn’t expect to see you here! Pulling out the big guns, are we?”

    “I told you, I’m not planning to lose here.” His opponent, Max1996, replied, his Greninja mimicking his motions as he talked. “And really Lone, like you don’t have a big gun of your own.” Lone_Garurumon chuckled.

    “True enough. Shall we just get on with it then?” He produced a Cherish Ball and let it fly. “Rio! It’s your turn now!” The ball exploded into brilliant light that quickly formed into the shape of a Lucario, her fur a bright yellow rather than the typical blue. “Alright, now let’s cut to the chase!” He called, clutching a pendant hanging from his neck, bright pink energy bursting from between his fingers. “The Aura is with us! Mega Evolve!” He released his grip on the pendant and held out his hand, the energy flowing along his arm and out towards a matching pendant on Rio’s neck. The stone in Rio’s pendant burst into bright blue flames of aura which quickly consumed her form. After a few moments, Rio burst forth from the flames, having transformed into a Mega Lucario.

    “Let’s go Rio! Force Palm!” As Rio charged towards Max-Greninja, it dodged and formed Night Slash blades in its hands with no verbal command from Max, who followed along with its movements from the sidelines. Rio sidestepped the swings and placed her palm on Greninja’s side, releasing a burst of energy that sent a Substitute doll flying through the air. Rio looked around briefly before being struck from behind by an Acrobatics attack. The pattern continued for several passes. Rio would think that she’s landed an attack, only to reveal some manner of Substitute, after which Max-Greninja would strike from the shadows, landing a solid blow. Eventually, Lone deduced a solution. “Vision’s useless, track its aura!” Closing her eyes, Rio reached out its senses and locked onto the signature of Greninja’s aura. Swiping with Blaze Kicks, Rio impacted another of Greninja’s Substitutes, and paused for a moment. Seconds later, as Greninja appeared to her left to make another attack, Rio pivoted and landed a Power-Up Punch squarely in its face. Max stumbled and held his face from Greninja’s pain that he was feeling, their synchronicity dropping for a moment as they both tried to power through it. “Press it, Rio! Don’t stop!” Not opening her eyes, Rio continued to punch Greninja in the opening, her fists glowing with progressively brighter and brighter orange energy as her attack power grew with each strike. “High-Jump Kick!” Rio ended her combo with a rising kick to Greninja’s chin.

    “Get out of there…” Max called. “U-Turn!” Greninja flipped backwards, striking Rio’s chin with a kick on its way out, and then continued backflipping until it had enough breathing room for its link with Max to properly resync itself.

    “Don’t let them recentre, Rio! Meteor Mash!” Rio’s paws shone with a golden glow with stars trailing behind them. She charged at Greninja, swinging a right hook, and struck yet another substitute. “Wait for it…” Lone called. Rio waited until Greninja’s aura reappeared, turned and swung again, only to miss as Greninja jumped over her strike and landed a kick to her head. Flipping upward, Greninja threw the giant Water Shuriken on its back down onto Rio, before landing behind her and following with several smaller stars. “Aura Sphere!” Rio formed one sphere of aura in each hand, and whirled around, throwing one sphere directly at Greninja who, predictably, vanished as a Substitute took the hit. Rather than waiting for the attack this time, the instant Greninja’s aura reappeared she hurled the second sphere that arced through the air to strike its target. Max once again winced in pain as Rio charged in with a Bone Rush to capitalise on the opening.

    “Greninja, we can’t let them keep doing this. Mat Block!” After receiving a few blows from Rio, Greninja dug its heel into the ground, causing a tatami mat to spontaneously appear and flip vertical between the two Pokemon. Greninja then vaulted against the mat, causing it to fly into Rio while Greninja gained distance. Once Greninja had its breathing room, it began to strike a series of poses in perfect sync with Max, bright blue energy connecting the two.

    “Ah shit.” Lone muttered as he realised what was happening. Greninja shot forward as Hydro Vortex erupted at beneath Rio, throwing her off of her feet as she struggled to stay upright. Greninja leapt into the Hydro Vortex, skilfully swimming through it to strike Rio from multiple angles. “Close Combat!” Rio made her best efforts to steady herself and keep track of Greninja’s aura, parrying and deflecting blows as best she could. “Come on, Rio! Don’t let ‘em get you!” Pushing through the attack, Rio gathered as much of her strength as possible and unleashed a mighty blast of aura, scattering the Hydro Vortex and leaving Greninja helpless in midair. Rio then pulled into a pose much like charging an Aura Sphere, gathering massive amounts of aura. She then threw her paws forward and unleashed a massive beam of aura. The Aura Storm consumed Greninja, causing Max to scream in pain before falling to his knees. As the beam faded, Greninja fell to the ground in its regular form, unconscious. Moments later, Rio also dropped to her knees from exertion, her Mega Evolved form evaporating in blue flames of aura.

    ExLight has lost the final battle!
    Hi there ExLight, you are Max1996!





    You are a minor, though recurring, character in the BMU. You appear mostly in groups scenes as a background character, often giving only one or two lines in response to events transpiring, before focus returns to the main characters of the stories being told. You have had your fair share of moments in the sun, however, most notably during YOU Mafia, where you fought desperately to defend yourself from MCH as he invaded your room to eliminate you, before being defeated. You also appeared in TWR Games Bonanza Mafia, where MegaPod accused you of plagiarising his Capture the Shiny Victini concept, resulting in your being sent to The Lavatory.

    You've thrown your lot in with MCH as your way of getting revenge on the section for always being lynched first during mafia games for ridiculous reasons. We'll just see how they like getting lynched, shall we?

    “Congratulations my friend.” MCH said, clapping softly as he got up to walk over to the winner. “I’m sure that everyone heard the conversation earlier, but please, drop your hood and reveal the identity of my new lieutenant.” At his words, the winner removed his hood to reveal the face of Lone_Garurumon, Super Moderator of Fun & Games and The War Room.

    Prog Rocker has won the tournament!
    Hi there Prog Rocker, you are Lone_Garurumon!





    Handsome and skilled, as well as a newly promoted Super Moderator, your appearances in the BMU began once you were hired as an F&G mod, and so all of your appearances to date have been as part of the mod team. From defeating Kyurem with your bare hands, to solving a Scooby Doo style mystery, truly, you are incredible.

    You’ve inserted yourself into the MCH case in an attempt to gain intel for the mod team, so that you can more effectively combat this threat that the team has suspected to be brewing for some time. With your unparalleled detective skills on the case, MCH doesn’t stand a chance.

    “However, you’re not my only lieutenant.” MCH mused.

    “Wait, what?” Lone said. “I thought that the winner of the tournament became your one, and only, lieutenant.”

    “I have no idea where you got that idea from. He’s been a wonderful conspirator so far, and I’m proud to have him. Come out, won’t you?” At his call, a Gardevoir appeared from another chamber, striding out confidently. The room was mostly silent, not recognising this user given their extended stint of absence from the forums. A faint memory niggled in the back of Lone’s mind as he tried to place this familiar figure.

    “B-BAG?”

    “Correct. The BadAssGardevoir, an old nemesis of Magnificent Entertainer’s, eventually brought around to being a friend. And now…” MCH let out a chuckle. “Back to being an enemy, here to tear down his legacy.” The crowd truly weren’t sure what to think. A former nemesis would certainly be useful, but with how long he’d been gone, how useful would he truly be?

    “In addition,” MCH continued, silencing the crowd, “After observing the magnificent efforts displayed during the tournament, I have deigned to recruit all of you into my army. Not with the same status as Mr. Garurumon, of course, but you shall still fight with me and be rewarded.” This got everyone straight back to talking among themselves. Truth be told, none of them were really sure what MCH actually planned for the losers, but being recruited anyway was certainly not their expectation. “As well, we have a couple of additional recruits, that I’m sure one of you will know very well.” At his words, a pair of females walked out from the same chamber that BAG had. Unlike BAG however, they were far more nervous in their gait, wondering just what they’d gotten themselves into. As soon as she saw the two individuals, FinalArcadia’s eyes began to fill with tears.

    “Space… Feenie…” She said softly to herself, before running up to embrace her sisters, tears streaming down her face. Max looked over at the display, having pulled himself together after his painful defeat. He smiled ever so slightly at the sisters’ reunion, but his face was tinged with a sombreness, as though contemplating something.

    “Congratulations Lone,” MCH said, clapping his new lieutenant on the shoulder, “You’ll do a fine job.”

    “I’m sure I will.” Lone replied. The two then began making various preparations, the same thought running through both their heads in unison.

    “And he has no idea I’ve been playing him the entire time.”

    The winner is @prog rocker!

    So uhhh, as you can probably see from those replays, the balance in this wasn't exactly good, and for that I am very sorry. I really thought that the balance was closer than that. I guess the lesson here is that next time we should run more tests on the teams.

    Anyway, question time:
    Did you enjoy the game?
    I've already given my piece on the balance, but what did you think?
    What did you think of the flavour text?
    If you could change one thing about the game, what would it be?
    Would you consider participating in a better balanced tournament such as this again?
