If you and I were battling with just us two as you suggested.
I use Ice Beam. You say dodge.
I'm pretty sure you don't want your opponent making the decision on whether your pokemon can dodge or not. It would be to bias a system.
A basic TRPG works in where an updater simply uses RNGs to determine most of the actions take Orange Island Forums as a reference. When a player progresses in the story its much like PE2K's Safari Zone Ranger, but with more detail. The Moderator or Updater (aka staff) isn't out to win, but to challenge the players thinking ability / strategy. The staff in a sense have to be as unbiased as possible.

Yes you can actually, though it seems as the whole URPG is based upon a RNG/Luck
