    Indeed. Our previous match was never completed, as it was prematurely interrupted by a loss of interest and subsequent departure on my part. This time, however, I intend to finish what we started.

    Rules
    • Six Pokémon apiece.
    • You send first, I attack first.
    • Disqualification will occur after one week of inactivity, although leniency should certainly be afforded if an adequate reason is provided. With luck, this will not become necessary.
    • The match shall take place in the roofless Indigo Stadium of Round 2 Pokémon Stadium.


    The last time we battled, your Dragonair's Agility attack actually sped up time and aged my Persian into a feeble, creaky old cat.. and, at one point, the sun became inexplicably angry and inflicted burn status on my Exeggutor just out of spite. I would hope that whoever decides to referee this battle will have more common sense.

    In case you do not remember me despite all that I've said so far, perhaps my custom title will jog your memory.

    Heh heh. I remember that fight. Very fun.

    And for my first Pokémon, one you know pretty well at this point. Go, Dragonair! [the Dragon-Type materializes]

    Sabrina: [teleports in with Sara] This should be fun, considering what happened last time.

    Let's get started, then. Siege, come forth!

    Siege: Nidorino!

    This will be Siege's first battle, but I'm sure he'll be able to hold his own against your Dragonair, experienced as it is.

    Siege, set up a Substitute to hold Dragonair off for a while.. we don't want you falling victim to something nasty this early in the match, right? Follow up with Confusion to scramble its senses just long enough to strike it down with a Blizzard attack.

    Substitute, Confusion, Blizzard

    Oh.. I think DRWS would be grateful if you specified your dragon's gender and gave it a name of some sort when you post your attacks.. otherwise he may have to refer to it as "some poor, nameless, ungendered Dragonair," and nobody wants that.

    Okay, Dragonair, lets start this off nicely. Use a Dragon Rage to get rid of that Substitute. Then use Surf when he's about to use Confusion. Lastly, when he tries to Blizzard you, give him a Fire Blast to thaw him out.

    Hey, what happened to you DRWS?

    Two words: Final exams.

    Dragonair's female, for the ref's info

    What?! No...nickname? Grrr...

    Round One:
    Prodigy's Siege the Nidorino vs. some Dragonair that belongs to Pokemaster Ash

    An epic battle begins today... Pokemaster Ash, a returning veteran of the ASB circuit hoping to take it by storm, seems to be hoping all in his path will "tremble". But a quick glance at his adversary reveals that this Prodigy is quite firm-footed, as is his spiny champion in battle.

    Siege wastes no time in pulling random clumps of matter from some extradimensional storage closet and molding it into a rather lifelike body double of himself, even as draconian flames a rather unnatural shade of turquoise wash over it. The Dragonair looks a little unnerved at Siege's unflinching stability... little does she know of his deception.

    Using natural water-calling abilities, the Dragonair calls to her a sizeable wave from an underground arena aqueduct - but not before Siege lashes out with a telepathic assault, bombarding her cerebrum with mental chaos. Willpower overpowers it, however, and she remains focused long enough to see Siege shatter and fade away under the water pressure. A fake!

    Miffed at the premature disappearance of his decoy, Siege prepares to unleash arctic wrath upon the Dragonair... but an intense burst of flame slices through the flurry of ice shards, vaporizing the brunt of the icy assault. But the flame itself is dimmed by the water, and the fiery kanji and snowstorm reach their targets only a shade of their former glory.

    End of Round One Status:
    Siege the Nidorino: 80%
    some Dragonair: 84%

    Dragonair: [is using Wrap on DRWS's neck, shouting at him in Dragonair language] I am not just some Dragonair! I'm as special as any other Dragon-Type!

    [sweatdrops] Dragonair, don't strangle the ref...

    Dragonair: [in Dragonair language] Sorry.

    Now back to the fighting. Use Thunder on Nidorino. Then get him with Wrap. Lastly, Iron Tail.

    Perhaps it would have helped if you had given Dragonair a nickname, like SS suggested. You already got fair warning.

    I stink at thinking of names, though (something which is even mentioned in my fic). It's easier for me to just call them as they are than to try to remember so many names, too.

    Any name, as long as it isn't the same as the species, is perfectly fine with me.

    Edit to EngiMatikul, below:

    And nicknames is kind of a pointless topic to argue over... :/

    Not when I'm the ref. Pokémon without nicknames piss me off.

    Not bad, Siege. Split off some mirror images to distract the dragon-type while you splatter it with Toxic sludge, then launch an Ice Beam attack. Aim for the head or neck if possible.. scoring a hit there is bound to be particularly effective, especially if you manage to encase it in ice.

    Double Team, Toxic, Ice Beam

    Your Dragonair puts on a tight squeeze, Pokemaster Ash.

    Fata Morgana: Gaaaarr...

    ...which is why Morgana here will proceed to Ice Punch her the moment she comes near again!

    Round Two:
    Siege the Nidorino (80%) vs. some Dragonair (84%)

    This isn't good... Dragonair suddenly finds herself surrounded by three Nidorinos - thankfully, only one is actually real. After some muttering something to herself that sounds oddly like "Eeny-Meeny-Miney-Moe", she discharges an intense burst of electrical fury at one Nidorino image, and some TI-83+ Silver Edition calculator somewhere decides that the Nidorino in question so happens to be the real Siege. While his panicky shrieks reveal the assault felt something like being hammered by rubber mallets over and over again, he finds himself in otherwise splendid condition.

    Siege looks as though he's been through a toaster and back again, and you'd think you'd be able to identify the real one this way, but nooooo - his images have apparently decided to follow his lead. Dragonair now faces that life-and-death, or rather win-or-lose, or something like that, decision: Which Nidorino is the real Siege? That one looks real... but as she encircles it with her body, it shrieks a highly unnatural scream and disintegrates. The image's sacrifice opens a wide window of opportunity for Siege, who hawks up a vile glob of deadly poison that sinks its way into Dragonair's fleshy skin.

    As Dragonair slithers her way towards another random Nidorino - unknowingly, the fake one - Siege seizes the initiative with a concentrated stream of ice crystals focused on one of her magical carbuncles. More out of instinct than control, Dragonair swings a metallic tail in a wild attempt to block the brunt of the beam; incidentally, she smashes it against the real Siege in the process.

    End of Round Two Status:
    Siege the Nidorino: 63%, one image remaining, mildly fatigued
    some Dragonair: 67%, badly poisoned, mildly fatigued

    Poor Siege... Lady Luck seemed to like screwing him over today.

    Kick up some earthy Mud Slap debris to provide a momentary distraction while you charge in with a sharp, poky Horn Attack. At the end of the round, replenish your mirror images with another Double Team. Dragonair has proved a worthy adversary thus far, but we'll see how well she fares once we recapture initiative.

    Dragonair, time to do some damage. Use Surf to do some damage and do more than counter his Mud Slap. Then use Hyper Beam when it comes charging in for the Horn Attack. Lastly, nail Nidorino with a Thunder Wave when it tries to use Double Team.

    Okay. I've put off doing this for long enough...

    Round Three:
    Siege the Nidorino (63%, one image remaining, mildly fatigued) vs. a Dragonair (67%, badly poisoned, mildly fatigued)

    Sticky, wet mud has become a plentiful commodity since the ground was last drenched by a wave of water, so Siege has no trouble in finding a patch of it and kicking it into the Dragonair's eyes. The Dragonair's water-summoning abilities are unhindered by blindness, however, and neither is the wave of water rushing up from the aqueduct's gates, washing over Siege and drowning his last remaining image. In the process, much of the blinding mud on the Dragonair's face is washed away, although a few remaining flecks of dirt sting at her eyes. That's the last time the Dragonair will be able to pull that trick, though; the aqueduct has been drained, and the ground greedily sucks up what liquid water is left on the field's surface.

    Miffed at the sudden disappearance of his sole decoy, Siege darts forward with an intent to spear the Dragonair on the tip of his horn... in his frenzy, however, he does not notice the rapidly expanding plasma-charged orb growing within the Dragonair's jaws. One nanosecond after he narrowly fails to miss the Dragonair's thin, snaky body, Siege is thrown back a good twenty feet by the furiously pain-stricken Dragonair's unexpected withering blast.

    Siege, in no hurry to be met by another one of those agonizing blows, calls up more phantoms to decoy service. One enjoys only a split-second of temporary freedom from that long-forsaken realm from whence it (and all the others) came; pulse after pulse of electricity, courtesy of the Dragonair, banishes it back to an endless torment of solitary confinement.

    End of Round Three:
    Siege the Nidorino: 30%, three images remaining, mildly fatigued
    a Dragonair: 52%, mildly-heavily fatigued
    Arena effects: Aquifer drained, ground muddy

    Okay, Dragonair. Use your Blizzard to start things off. You should hit the real Nidorino because of its broad range.. Then send a Thunder and a Fire Blast after it. (Ice, Elec, Fire... Not too bad for variety, huh?)

    Now or never, Siege. We'll have to hope this works, huh?

    Lift yourself high into the air by blasting the ground directly below you with a high-pressure Water Gun, then Disable your opponent as soon as you re-orient yourself. Start your horn spinning as you fall, and bore right down into her from above with your Horn Drill!

    Since I'm stuck at school with nothing better to do...

    Round Four:
    Siege the Nidorino (30%, three images remaining, mildly fatigued) vs. a Dragonair (52%, mildly-heavily fatigued)
    Arena effects: Aquifer drained

    As the Dragonair summons a chilling wind blowing with hundreds of chilling ice crystals, Siege spurts out water from his internal reservoir into a tiny but highly pressurized stream, throwing himself to impressive heights...

    ...as Siege falls, he twists himself in midair to fall toward Dragonair. Better stay out of the way. thinks the Dragonair as she notices him falling in her direction. But as she starts to slither away, an unseen force ripples around her... she can't move!

    The Dragonair can only stare helplessly as she notices the horn on Siege's forehead begin spin rapidly... and then she comes to a horrible realization that Siege's attack will be an extremely painful one. Suddenly, the hold on her is released, and she quickly speeds off out of fear...but it's too late. A split-second after she begins to take off, Siege's spinning horn digs her way into her thick draconian flesh... The agony is unbearable.

    End of Round Four Status:
    Siege the Nidorino: 23%, mildly-heavily fatigued
    a Dragonair: 12% (damage caps), mildly-heavily fatigued, bleeding heavily

    Dragonair, we won't let a little flesh wound stop you. After all, your scales did absorb most of that attack.

    Dragonair: [in her language] Yeah, but it still dug in...

    Another Blizzard should really do some damage. Then get Nidorino with Thunder. If it's KOed, Rest. If not, Hyper Beam before it KOs you.

    Mustering one last ounce of willpower for a last show of strength, crystal ice shards fly from the Dragonair's carbuncle, even as a similar storm blowing in her direction chills her to unconsciousness, even as her trainer shouts at her, "Hey wait, it was only a flesh wound!...

    [starts laughing] Unless you've got something really good to stop this Pokémon, you might have lost here.

    You did well, Dragonair. Return! [recalls the fallen Dragon-Type] And now... [pulls out a Great Ball] Hit it, Alakazam!

    Okay, Alakazam. Take care of that Nidorino with a Psychic attack. If he's somehow still up after that, Psychic again.

    Oh.. rest assured, I do. But I'm not leaving my Nidorino out there to be blasted by your healthy Alakazam. A solid showing indeed for your first match, Siege. Come on back.

    So! Which of my champions shall dispatch your Alakazam? Perhaps another first time battler.. round, pink, and deadly. Mystra, forward!


    Mystra: Chansey chansey!

    Mystra, vanish behind a sturdy Substitute and fill the stadium with Sing before blasting Alakazam with a Shadow Ball. Charge it up before letting it fly if Alakazam falls asleep, but snap it off quickly if Alakazam makes his saving throw.. er.. doesn't fall asleep.

    I was waiting for a sign to do that.

    Alakazam, take care of that substitute with your Psywave. No need to waste energy on that. Then use Psychic to do some damage and hopefully knock it out of its singing. Lastly use Teleport to get away from the Shadow Ball.

    Round Six:
    Prodigy's Mystra the Chansey vs. Pokemaster Ash's... genderless Alakazam.
    Arena effects: Aquifer drained (not like anybody will really be needing it now)

    Mystra reaches for some other-worldly matter and pulls out... another Chansey?! Nah... it playfully squeaks like one, but it's only the work of a skilled actress. Meanwhile, the Alakazam witnesses the act, and is disturbed by the sight: two Chanseys? After briefly considering the situation (and a psionic nudge from the Substitute), it dismisses the thought as a mirage and continues to flood the area with distorting waves of psychic energy, dealing the discomfort of destabilizing molecules to Mystra and her stunt double alike.

    The dreaded sleeping song... the Alakazam tries to squeeze Mystra's larnyx in an attempt to quiet the noise, but though Mystra appears to writhe in choking pain, the soothing melody plays on... A brief glimmer of understanding at the sight of a Chansey shattering into thousands of shards of ectoplasm is the last conscious thought the Alakazam thinks before he falls into a slump.

    Most round objects that appear from a Chansey's pouch are quite healthy, or indeed, tasty, but not this appetizer: a swirling ball of dark, ethereal energy gathers between her stubby little hands before it's sent spiraling into Alakazam's snoozing form. Though the pain would have been greatly felt while awake, the Alakazam merely twitches and mumbles something that sounds like a query as to when breakfast will be served.

    End of Round Six Status:
    Mystra the Chansey: 74%
    some boring, nameless, genderless Alakazam: 83%, asleep

    Good going, Mystra. Don't worry if you're a few points behind in health.. Siege was trailing that Dragonair for three rounds before he delivered the deathblow, and you're better suited to battling Alakazams than Siege is to battling Dragonairs. You'll take the lead after a while, perhaps sooner if PMA is careless while we have the initiative.

    Mystra: Chan-sey!

    All you can do for now is Sleep Talk, Alakazam. Let's hope it comes up with some good attacks. If you wake up at any time, use Psychic instead (since Sleep Talk wouldn't work).

    Hm.. on second thought, Mystra, perhaps we should wait a while longer, when Alakazam isn't in a position where damage caps will save it and any injuries can simply be Recovered. In the meantime, load it with nasty status ailments.. a corrupting glob of venom here, a burst of seizue-inducing electricity there.. and, of course, if you get the chance, Dream Eater. If you don't, hit it with a Shadow Ball.

    Toxic, Thunder Wave, Dream Eater/Shadow Ball

    Of course, when you do strike, what will PMA have to say about it? "Don't worry, Alakazam, they're only sprained, not broken"?

    The Free for All? Oh.. well.. best of luck to you when it comes to finding interesting and valuable things, and I mean that sincerely.

    After all, we at the Order of the Froody Furaigons would be quite disappointed if we took time out of our adventuring schedule to drive you veterans into the ground and you didn't have anything worthwhile.

    Default Prodigy challenges Pokemaster Ash.

    Round Seven:
    Mystra the Chansey (74%) vs. some (still) boring, nameless, genderless Alakazam (83%, asleep)

    Even as it sleeps, hunger burns in the Alakazam's mind... a hunger for energy from thoughts never uttered when one is awake. Unfortunately, its ćtherial dream-feeder finds nothing from the wakened Mystra, and instead it gets a faceful of an intensely vile concoction that seeps its way into his bloodstream...

    The Alakazam stirs. For a moment, Mystra thinks she has wakened it, but quickly realizes it's doing just that - talking in his sleep. However, as the Alakazam's babbling steadily increases in clarity and coherence, a boiling wave of emotion erupts within Mystra... such slander! Though at first Mystra realizes that her trainer couldn't care less about such lies, her logic slowly gives way to pure anger... not completely, yet. Not enough to stop throwing sparks of static at her aggressor...

    Even heavy sleepers wake after being prodded and thrown around enough. Still slightly groggy, the Alakazam blindly reaches out with a mental grip much like somebody who has just woken up reaches out for something to support their weight on. Unfortunately for Mystra, she happens to be what the Alakazam supports its mental weight on. Even as she is crushed into the arena floor, she manages to collect ćtherial energy into a semi-spheroid shape, which explodes like an egg yolk as its ghostly mass splatters on the Alakazam's body. If there's any comfort for the Alakazam, it's the fact that Shadow Balls aren't as sticky as eggs.

    End of Round Seven Status:
    Mystra the Chansey: 64%, slightly fatigued, berserked
    some boring, nameless, gender-confused Alakazam: 63%, badly poisoned, paralyzed

    Mystra.. prime yourself for combat with Psych Up, emulating Alakazam's calm, emotionless state. This is important.. tearing at Alakazam in a blind fury isn't the way to go at things, and finesse befits you better, anyway. You'll get your chance to smash him, but you won't pull it off if you're foaming at the mouth.

    Better? Pull together another Substitute and smite Alakazam with a Thunderbolt.

    Still furious? Blast Alakazam with Eggs of Detonation, and you're bound to feel better.

    Psych Up, Substitute/Egg Bomb, Thunderbolt/Egg Bomb

    Alakazam's male, DRWS. I thought I mentioned that...

    While Chansey's Psyching Up, take it down a few notches with Hyper Beam. If it uses Substitute, take it out with Psywave. If it shoots an Egg Bomb at you, use Psychic. Lastly use Kinesis to do some damage to its accuracy.

    <this is not a ref bump carefully disguised as a rebuttal to my opponent's attack strategy>

    Psywaves are small, erratic, and decidedly low-damage psionic distortions, so unless Mystra creates an exceptionally flimsy Substitute and the <DRWS?> Substitute is actually hit and damage by each and every Psywave, I'm guessing it's going to take more than that to break her body double.
