Round 12


Tox seems to disagree with all the suggestions of Supersonic being thrown around, huffing to herself and deciding to just take a moment to clear her head instead. Ariel on the other hand considers their trainer's orders much more carefully and decides that they have just enough energy to go through with a final attack. Ariel fills their gem up with pink energy, the last she can muster, and fires the Secret Power attack towards the bug-type. Tox ends up being a bit too distracted to see it coming, unable to mount a proper defense before being blasted. She cries out unhappily, tumbling toward the treeline at the edge of the ring. Ariel wobbles dangerously... and despite momentarily looking as if she was going to get a hold of themselves, exhaustion finally overtakes them and they falls flat on the battlefield.

Ariel is unable to battle! Schadenfreude, send out your next Pokemon!

Tox gets up, standing a bit away from the trees at the forest edge. She took a good hit, but she's still above half health, not too damaged yet. She managed to avoid suffering any ill effects from Secret Power, and her head has cleared up. She used no energy that round.

Return, Ariel. That was a truly valiant effort. Good job.

Knightley the Fearow, released well above Venonat, at least a few metres.

Fearow, ascend while blowing a Razor Wind Venonat's way to put some distance between the two of you. Then, keeping your distance, stay aloft and use Twister.

Protect against the Razor Wind. Quickly, before it can use Twister (in between moves), wrap up its wings with a String Shot.

Round 13

((Bit shorter than normal because it's late but I want to get this one up for you two.))


Schadenfreude's second Pokemon is a fearsome, bug-eating terror bird - a Fearow named Knightley! He screeches harshly, spreading his wings and gliding into position.

Knightley begins by flapping his wings hard, both ascending and blowing a heavy Wind full of Razor-like air blades towards his opponent. Tox wasn't about to let this bird get the upper hand so quickly, focusing her energy outwards to create and impenetrable shield of absolute Protection. A hail of air blades fall across the dome but are deflected away, keeping Tox safe and sound. Knightley is decently high up now, but not quite out of range of most ranged attacks. He doesn't let up, stopping and flapping its great wings once again. This time it focuses on pushing the air, attempting to whip up a great Twister. At the same time, Tox takes aim and spits a long String Shot up towards her avian opponent. The distance makes aiming quite difficult, the thin string being blown slightly off course by the worsening winds as well. The sticky strand collides with Knightley's left wing, coating it pretty well and entangling it decently as he flaps hard. The Fearow manages to stay stable just long enough to finish his attack though, the harsh whirlwind kicking off and tearing into the treeline, buffeting Tox considerably with the harsh winds. Branches are torn from trees, trunks creaking unhappily in the winds. When the tiny cyclone finally subsides, a rather big mess remains amongst the trees where it had traveled. Tox gets up, nursing her bumps and cuts, but not out of it yet. Knightley dips a bit but manages to remain airborne, finding it harder to fly with one wing stuck up in sticky string.

---

Fearow is fluttering quite a distance off of the ground, above and a bit away from Tox who stands amongst forest debris down below.

Fearow took no damage this round but used a big chunk of energy. Having just come out of the Pokeball though, he's still quite fresh. With his wing stuck up in string shot, he'll find it very hard to make sudden or complex aerial maneuvers. Some wind-based attacks may be weakened slightly. Some strong flapping will loosen the string.

Tox was hit pretty seriously by that Twister, having been cut down to slightly below half health.

Ascend (to make it quite clear) while emitting a Supersonic. Use Psychic Wave from above to force Fearow to the ground.

Wait... how do you intend on 'ascending'? Using Psychic? Also, if you intend on getting above the Fearow, because that's a pretty considerable movement that'll count as a move. Re-order, or confirm the three-mover.

Venonats can fly...?

Also Fearow has been String Shotted. As I understand it, it's fluttering somewhere above the ground but it's kind of struggling to keep aloft. Obviously if this is not the case I'll reorder.

I don't think Venonat can fly, can it? It has no wings.

Huh. Pokedex entries seem to imply that it can. Well. Now that I take a closer look, I see that that isn't possible X_X

Well gosh darnit.

Supersonic and then Psychic Wave.

Quickly Uproar over that Supersonic, and then let the Psychic Wave slam you further high up into the sky. Then, before you hit the ground, steady your height and fire off a Razor Wind.

Round 14


Tox goes for a wicked Supersonic screech, hoping to frazzle that bird-brain's brain-circuits real good. Knightley wasn't having any of it though, countering by making an even bigger noise - an Uproar infact, flapping around and kicking up an incredibly loud fuss. The cacophony takes the form of a blue cone, overtaking the similarly appearing supersonic and continuing on to wash over the Venonat. The harsh sound hurts her, but the bug-type wasn't through trying yet!

Venonat's next attack was a Psychic wave, the intense and nearly-invisible wall of power slamming straight into the giant bird's chest. Knightly screeches unhappily, pushed about two feet up into the air by the blast. Unfortunately, the sudden blow causes him to lose control of his flight and with a strung up wing it was difficult to recover, but he manages to do, spreading his wings as best he can and gliding back into stable flight. Happy to not have crashed the bird sighs with relief then stops, letting rip with a storm of bladed-winds, a Razor Wind! Tox makes for the trees, but doesn't manage to get behind one in time, ducking down next to it and taking much of the attack. Blades of air slice and cut at the bug's skin, stinging viciously. As the winds die down it can be seen that Knightley's wing is much looser now, the intense flapping having snapped away some of the bounding string. Large sticky pieces still hang from it, so it wasn't perfect, but it was a big improvement for the bird.

---

Overall Knightley lost some altitude, now hovering about fifteen feet off of the ground and much closer to the trees. Tox is standing beside one of the trunks, about fifteen feet ground distance away from being directly under the bird as well.

Knightley took a big hit from psychic, but he'll survive. His energy use this round was quite heavy; he could use a simpler round next up.

Tox is looking very roughed up, well below half health now. The energy deficit she had against her opponent has closed somewhat, though her psychic energy is used up.

Fearow, seize the initiative with an Air Cutter. If Venonat tries to release a Supersonic or Disable then use Scary Face to intimidate him out of it, but otherwise keep your distance/altitude and release another Air Cutter.

Round 15


Knightley screeches, feeling he has the upper hand now. Taking the initiative as ordered, he flaps his great wings hard, sending another Air Cutter in Tox's direction. The bug-Pokemon, seeing this, goes for a final gambit and Bides her time as best she can in hopes of scoring a big hit on that oversized parrot. The Air Cutter crashes into her, stinging and cutting into her skin, but she managed to withstand it - she had to! Knightley cries out again, firing a second Air Cutter now. Tox closes her eyes, bracing as the second super effective wave comes towards her. Despite her best efforts, this attack really got to her, the wear and tear on her body getting to be all too much. With one particularly sharp slash she suddenly cries out in pain, losing focus on her Bide. As the wind subsides she collapses, having been battered into submission. Try as she might, her consciousness leaves her, and she is unable to battle on.

Tox is unable to battle! Schadenfreude & Knightley are the winners!

Return, Fearow.

Thanks for the detailed, ultra-fast reffing, MC. I know that sometimes, I was too inquisitive and questioning, so I appreciate that you stuck with this match. One day, I aspire to become just as good a ref as you. Maybe I'll be able to ref one of your own matches some day?

Good game, Shuckle. And thanks to sticking to this match, instead of disappearing or replying only sporadically.

Grumble grumble etc.

I still have a long way to go! Thanks for the learning experience and enjoy the total stomp. It does not reflect well on your opponent when your only loss of Pokemon is from energy exhaustion, really.

You've been very courteous throughout the whole thing, a and I wish you luck in your future battles!

*graciously accepts and subsequently totally ignores TP*

KOs are literally the only thing that matters this might make good SP though.

@jab about my activity levels

Come now, that isn't fair. I have stated multiple times that my time is not really my own and won't be for a good ten years!
