ROUND 1: Jump Start

ROUND 1: Jump Start
Primeape vs Blaziken

Welcome to the Cage of Discipline Arena. A thronging crowd screams, waving banners, posters and other paraphernalia devoted to the shrine of sports. While floodlights drown a central stage and the iron cage sitting in its centre, a thrum of bloodlust ignites the atmosphere like a powderkeg. The air almost bristles with palpable tension. Under the excited gazes of the spectators walk two battlers, who take their places at opposite ends of the cage. One of them, the swarthy Gym Leader, grins at his less seasoned but competent opponent. Salty beads of sweat drip down their temples, which they wipe off with their sleeves. After they exchange a nod of respect, the two Trainers step into fighting stances. Their hands flick to their Pokéballs, ready to begin.

The Referee, a peppy man wearing a MMA headband, speaks aloud:

"We now begin a Gym Match between Apollo77 and. KamenAeons," he says, tapping numbers into his Pokédex. "Here is the data on their chosen Pokémon."

They interpret being stared in the eyes a challenge to their authority. Thus, any eye contact will cause Primeape launch into a beserk rage. They will focus almost exclusively on the offending target to the exclusion of all other concerns unless something else starts to become a bigger problem or gets in the way of their rage. Until its target has fallen Primeape will be extremely emotional and responsive but more vulnerable to confusion. Primeape will also be winded for a few moments after its beserker rage has ended, with longer periods of rage meaning more downtime. A trainer may write a note in their bio stating that their Primeape has been trained not to enter in to the enraged state in this way.
[Fighting]: Fighting-type Pokémon train extensively, more than any other Pokémon type, which gives them greater endurance and readiness than other Pokémon and allows them to push themselves harder for longer. They are more accurate with their physical blows and are more adept at blocking and countering the physical strikes of attackers. They fight more enthusiastically in urban environments but are not adversely affected by more natural surroundings.

Blaziken (Fire/Fighting): Blaziken are exceptional jumpers and can leap up to three times their head height. Kicking attacks will do slightly more damage then normal. Blaziken have flames on their wrists and can control whether their flames are ignited at any one time. However, they cannot use any fire attacks if their fire is not ignited. Igniting does not count as a move, and happens automatically when the Pokémon is ordered a fire attack. However, de-igniting counts as a move and they will automatically de-ignite if they fall asleep. Their flames can be used to burn foes if there is prolonged contact and can provide illumination. They are also familiar with the Flying type. As starter Pokémon, their Fire-type attacks are slightly more powerful when they drop below 1/4 health.
[Fire]: Fire-types fight most enthusiastically in hot and dry conditions. They are extremely difficult to burn and most can survive in hot liquids/molten lava for an extended period of time (indefinitely in the case of the Magmar and Slugma lines). If a Fire Pokémon has an exposed flame somewhere on its body, it will take a small amount of extra damage if liquid water hits the flame. Otherwise, Fire-type Pokémon are not adversely affected by taking dips in bodies of water, so long as the time is short (except in the case of the Magmar and Slugma lines, who will take damage the longer they are in the water).

The Referee says loudly, "And let's begin in three... two... one. Release!"

From the red lights of PokéBalls converge an intrepid primate from the Primeape line called Takeshi and a fiery avian named Mokou from the Blaziken species, who emanates electric enthusiasm. Initially, the two creatures keep their distance. After a second, both battlers leap into action. While Takeshi clenches his biceps, his muscles churn with flushed energy which Bulks them Up. Within seconds, Takeshi appears as sturdy as mortar, capable of both taking and delivering a beating. Mokou herself does not dawdle, though. Closing her eyes, the Blaziken slows her breath, which deepens and lengthens. Her mind enters a tranquility which reminds the spectators of a still pond, with almost mesmeric but mysterious depths. When Mokou opens her eyes, her pupils contract with a Focus which is as sharp as a scapel's edge. This Blaziken won't be bettered. Not easily, in the field of boosts.

Noticing Mokou's own boosts, Takeshi scoffs and dons a dismissive expression. The over-glorified poultry could try to copy his techniques, but Takeshi thinks to himself that nobody could top him. A Primeape is dominant, after all. Undefeatable. Eager to prove his supremacy, Takeshi brings his fists together and charges a maelstrom of Focused power. When Takeshi swings an arm, the sphere rumbles and roars towards Mokou. However, Mokou is prepared. Exploiting her species's god-given leaping ability, the Blaziken Jumps over the Blast, which barely nicks Mokou's toes. Undaunted by this, Mokou does not even flinch and straightens her leg, swishing it down. Her Hi Kick crashes into Takeshi's face, which twists into a shocked grimace. While Mokou gracefully sashays onto the ground next to Takeshi, the Blaziken smiles sweetly. What a good start, indeed.


Mokou has opened a small health lead, but both battlers remain boosted and peppy.

-KamenAeons to order.
