Missingno. Master- With Gengar taking full advantage of your last orders, you decide the best course of action is to keep laying on the damage. The longer the battle dragged out, the more time the Gengar would have to make use of the Nasty Plot boost. That wasn't something you could afford. You urge Sunny on, the Ninetales' eyes glow blue as she launches a psychic assault. She prods and plays with the Gengar's senses, generating visible pain from the Poison typed Gengar. Sunny delights in the pain she is causing, the Gengar deserves every bit of it. It isn't long before the Gengar fights back however, it gathers a mass of swarming shadows into a ball and launches it at the Ninetales. Sunny is smashed by the powerful blow, it wasn't super effective but it might as well be with the Gengar's boost behind it.

The pair then go about trading blows, Sunny firing off a sun-boosted Flamethrower while the Gengar returns serve with a staggering Dark Pulse. Both attacks hit their mark, both Pokemon taking considerable hits but there was still plenty of fuel in the tank. Sunny continues to abuse the sunny conditions, gathering more flames before roasting the Gengar with another Flamethrower. "So repetitive", drones the figure, "Gengar, use Spite!" The Gengar cackles as it casts a shroud of ghost energy over the Ninetales. The Fire type's tails droop, a sudden fatigue falling over her due to the Gengar's Spite. In her tired state she would likely struggle to continue going toe to toe with the Gengar, she needed something to go her way.

In her tired state she would likely struggle to continue going toe to toe with the Gengar, she needed something to go her way.
Sunny and Gengar proceeded to exchange powerful blows- Sunny's moves powered up by type matchups and weather, Gengar's by way of stat boosts. Either way, heavy hits were being exchanged. The two looked to be more or less evenly matched at the moment, going toe to toe with each other, which of course was the fiendish opponent's cue to try and tip things further in his favor. A Spite attack was his next order, and Sunny was feeling it right away.

"So tired," Sunny grunted as she felt the fatigue wash over her. "Terri... something's gotta give, and soon." And as the Normal Form Ninetales said this, she and Terri exchanged brief yet significant glances. They both knew what must be done here.

Terri gave a nod. "Nasty Plot," was all she said.

Sunny nodded back, and proceeded to think horrible thoughts once more. As Gengar proved earlier in the battle, doing this was absolutely not a valid long-term strategy against this Gengar. But with how much this Spite had drained her, nothing about this battle seemed long-term anymore. They needed to finish the job and fast, and Sunny had a feeling she knew exactly what Terri had in mind.

And sure enough, once she could be sure Nasty Plot's effects had taken root, Terri moved her arms. "Let's do it, Sunny!" she exclaimed as brilliant light poured from the Psychium Z set into her Z-Power Ring.

The Fire-type grinned, her suspicions confirmed at once. "Niiiiiiiine~" she howled in response.

"Find your strength and yield to nobody!" Terri was saying as she struck the necessary poses. "Make our minds join! Increase our power and direct it to our enemies!"

All nine of Sunny's tails were unfurled at this point, the Z-Power coursing through the Fox Pokémon's body. "Taaaaaaaaaaaales!" she called out. She was ready- ready to tip things right back in their favor, ready to defeat this menace once and for all, and she could feel her Extrasensory move powering up, transforming, becoming something far, far stronger.

Terri gave a confident grin, knowing how ready her Ninetales was, how ready she was, to end this. "Now perform- Shattered Psyche!!!"


Code:
  

Sunny surrounded itself with its Z-Power!

Sunny unleashes its full-force Z-Move!

...



Shattered Psyche

Missingno. Master- With Sunny struggling post Spite, you know you have to pull out all the stops. You needed a game changer and you needed it now! Sunny needed all the strength she could muster right now, that meant risking it with another Nasty Plot. The Ninetales bolstered her Special Attack once more, with no counter orders coming from the mysterious figure. Oh well, it just gave you time to sort out your next and hopefully final orders. Light begins to pour from the Psychium Z Crystal in your Z-Power Ring. It was time for the nuke. Your mind melds with Sunny's as you move through the accompanying dance with fluid like motion. The Ninetales can feel her Psychic powers strengthen, her Extrasensory powering up beyond belief.

"Do it now", the figure states calmly, prompting the Gengar to repeat its earlier tactic. The Ghost spews forth another Clear Smog, robbing Sunny of the boost she had just given herself. Despite this, the power she has gathered is tremendous and she lets it loose, launching an intense burst of Psychic energy. The Gengar is thrown up into the air, bounced around like a ball in a slot machine as it slams into a mass of invisible barriers. Finally its mind is shattered, almost beyond repair, before it floats down towards the ground, hitting it softly....

You'd won! You'd actually won!? Ha, nope, the Gengar slowly rises back into the air, barely clinging to life/afterlife. The figure doesn't issue orders, he just waits silently, staring with a stone cold face in your direction. Sunny is looking exhausted following the Z Move, but she certainly had the upper hand on the opponent now. You just had to finish the job.

Terri looked on intently as the Z-Move was unleashed. Shattered Psyche threw Gengar around, bouncing it off of invisible walls like a spiky spectral pinball. And finally, Gengar crashed to the ground... but no! Despite being slammed with a super effective Z-Move, Sunny hadn't triumphed. Not yet, at least. Gengar was surely hanging on with naught but a singular hit point by now, and though Sunny had taken big damage thus far, she still looked to have the advantage. They had to capitalize on it, and fast. "Finish it with Ember!" Terri commanded.

Sunny gave a nod, and made to charge up the basic Fire technique... but knew better than to just fire it off like that. No. It was too easy. And Sunny had grown up under the training of Keith Masters, grown up with a Gengar as her teammate. Some of the things this Gengar had done caught her off-guard, but there was no way she was gonna go down to a damn Destiny Bond. Yeah, she could see that one coming a mile away, and while Gengar would go down regardless, Sunny frankly didn't want to know what would happen if the battle ended in a tie. The stakes were too high for that sort of a risk.

All her body language suggested she was about to comply fully with Terri's order and do nothing else... right up until the last second, where she instead dashed into what would be a woefully ineffective Quick Attack. But that was fine- in fact, Sunny was counting on Quick Attack doing absolutely no damage. The idea was to waste just enough time for the Destiny Bond to wear off, and then, at the right moment, fire off the commanded Ember and secure their victory.

Missingno. Master- All this time, the figure had been one step ahead of you, working out your strategies with amazing accuracy and countering them at every turn. Yet you now found yourself in that position, with his Gengar in this weakened state, Destiny Bond was the obvious play. Sunny begins to gather up an Ember, but this was just a ploy. She'd instead dash forward with a Quick Attack, triggering the Destiny Bond before finishing off the Gengar with the Ember. The plan was perfect, if the figure did indeed intend on using Destiny Bond.....

"You've revealed your trump card, now its time to reveal ours", the figure shouts as throws both arms upwards, cutting through the cloak with two concealed blades. As the scraps of cloth fall at its feet, you realise that they aren't just blades, they're a Doublade! The Doublade's sheathe is firmly implanted on the chest of the mangled trainer it had taken as its host. The Doublade's ribbons wrap around the man's arms, then you notice the Z Ring on the man's left wrist....

"It was truly fortunate when this travelling trainer fell into the crevice we once called home. Desperate and dying, we took him for our host and with his strength we've brought many others under our thrall. Before long the whole Cloud Garden will be ours, especially once we have your Froslass on our side and yourself as our new host body. As for our Trump Card though, Gengar, Never-Ending Nightmare!" The Doublade forces its host body to perform the Z dance, activating the Ghostium Z engaged in its Z Ring. Ghost energy swells around the Gengar as it releases a swarm of shadows. Even as Sunny dashes forward, large spectral arms rise from the ground to grab at her, pulling her to the ground. The Ninetales struggles to get free, but in a last ditch effort she fires off the Ember, as instructed. The arms explode and Sunny is knocked unconscious by the sheer power of the Z Move. As the Ninetales faints, her move hits its mark, dealing a final blow to the Gengar as well. The Gengar screeches before sinking to the ground, it was a draw?!

"Well would you look at that, neither of us won", the Doublade cackles, "guess that means your simply at my mercy?" It begins to approach, each step shaky as its host's mangled bones struggle. It swishes its blades menacingly through the air, warming itself up for a finishing blow. With the Gengar unconscious however, Help seems to be coming to, as does Laugh. You notice the Froslass is starting to twitch, as if she was close to waking up....

Sunny's plan was sound in principle, and as soon as she started to carry it out, Terri was unsurprised by it, realizing in an instant the danger the Normal Form Ninetales had foreseen. Or so they thought she'd foreseen, anyway- the figure slashed away at his cloak with his blades, revealing something shocking- he was the blades! The creepily moving human body was a host for this Doublade! The set of spooky sentient swords bragged about the good fortune they had in possessing a dying travelling Trainer as their host, using his strength to take control of others, and about how they intended to not only add Laugh to their ranks, but to take Terri as their new host body. And throughout all this, they forced their host to go through the motions to activate a Z-Ring! A Ghostium Z was activated, and Gengar unleashed the Ghost-type Z-Move- Never-Ending Nightmare! The best that could be said was that Sunny managed to get off that Ember before passing out from the powerful move, but that was it- the battle was over. It was a draw.

Sunny hadn't even wanted to know what would happen if the match was a tie, but Terri was finding out now- neither side won, but with Doublade being what they were, and Terri simply a human, this in theory put her at their mercy. And the host body stumped forward, step by shaky step, and for a moment, Terri froze. Was this truly the end? Even though they'd managed to take out the Phantump, the Lampent, and the Gengar, was this really it for-

Wait a minute. They'd taken out the Gengar. Terri looked wildly around- Help was beginning to stir, and Laugh was twitching a little bit. Terri knew that twitching- knew that her girlfriend was on the brink of waking up.

"Help, use Heal Bell!" Terri called urgently. Then, she turned back to the monstrosity approaching her. Throughout this whole ordeal they'd been one step ahead of her, but now Terri was the one about to gain the upper hand. She took a deep breath and shouted at the top of her lungs; "LAUGH! HELP MEEEEEEE!" Heal Bell was intended to help speed up Laugh's waking up, but knowing that her beloved was in imminent danger, that would awaken Laugh faster than anything. And more than that, that would make whoever or whatever was threatening Terri a very unfortunate individual indeed. Shy, quiet, and soft-spoken Laugh most undoubtedly was under normal circumstances, but be stupid enough to threaten her girlfriend? Doublade had no idea the world of pain they were in for. Laugh would go to any lengths to Protect her beloved, and her anger would surely Astonish Doublade. After which they could look forward to a Shadow Ball so powerful that naught but inanimate scrap metal would remain.

Missingno. Master- With everything coming to a head, you now finally understood what was going on. This Doublade had sinister dreams, dreams that you were a part of. It seemed intent on claiming your body for itself, but with Gengar now down for the count, it was exposed. Help quickly snaps awake and begins to chime with a Heal Bell. The Doublade cackles, not caring at all about the technique as it fires a Flash Cannon at the Comfey. The Fairy type is instantly knocked out, it wasn't anywhere near the level of the Doublade, it never stood a chance. Thankfully, you never intend for Help to be the one to save you. While the Doublade may have dismissed the Heal Bell, its true purpose was far from useless. The Doublade separates itself from its host body, preparing to attach itself to a new one. The Doublade's old body slumps to the ground, their were no signs of life....

The Doublade reaches out with one of its sashes, preparing to wrap itself around your arm. Before it makes contact however, a shadow sweeps in between the two of you, an icy chill pushing the Doublade back as Laugh comes to your aid! The Froslass quickly pushes her advantage, striking the surprised Doublade with an Astonish! Laugh seems to be fueled by resentment as she continues her assault, firing a powerful Shadow Ball at the Doublade. Unfortunately, the Doublade has now collected itself, this wouldn't be that easy. The Steel type uses one of its blades to cut through the Shadow Ball with a Shadow Claw, reducing the damage before following up with another Shadow Claw with its other blade, striking Laugh and knocking her back into your arms. The Froslass looks up at you, she'd fight for you until her last breath, but she didn't intend for that to happen!

The Froslass looks up at you, she'd fight for you until her last breath, but she didn't intend for that to happen!
Help came to pretty much right away- without Gengar to maintain the hypnotic trance, the Comfey didn't need much to snap out of it. That, however, was where the good news ended for the Fairy-type- almost before the Heal Bell's chiming died down, Doublade had fired a powerful Flash Cannon that knocked Help clean out on the spot. The difference in level was painfully obvious- had Help been Terri's last hope against Doublade, she would have been screwed.

But, thankfully, this wasn't the case. The Heal Bell got it started, and Terri's scream finished the job. Laugh's eyes snapped open as it sank in that her beloved was in mortal peril, and the Froslass sprang into action! Normally a shy, quiet personality, friendly and agreeable to those that get to know her, Laugh was quite the stark contrast to her usual self when it came to those fool enough to threaten Terri. A fact that Doublade was bearing witness to right here, right now.

The Ice-type's eyes blazed with fury as she Astonished Doublade, catching the pair of blades off guard. However, when she launched Shadow Ball, Doublade had regained his composure and was fighting back with Shadow Claw. This allowed it to both reduce the Shadow Ball's damage and also land a powerful blow on the Froslass herself, sending her flying right into Terri's arms. "Oh, Laugh," Terri murmured, her voice thick with emotion.

"His Pokémon... you must have fought them off if he's attacking personally," Laugh murmured as she looked up lovingly at Terri.

Terri nodded, hugging Laugh. "Are you OK?" she murmured.

The Froslass gave a faint smile. "Better than I was, now that you're here," she replied. "But not as good as I'll be once we destroy Doublade." With that, the Froslass floated back into the air. "You fought to save me. Now it's my turn," she declared. The Froslass thought fast. Briefly, she'd considered Hail, get her Snow Cloak going, but she immediately decided against it, for several reasons. One, if Doublade couldn't hit her, he'd just go straight for Terri instead, since Snow Cloak's effect couldn't be extended to her as well. And two, the whole idea was pointless anyway- as far as a Doublade's possible Abilities went, No Guard was the only game in town, making any attempt at evasiveness pointless on either side. But neither could it just be head-on attacking alone- Laugh had to play it smart here, even the odds as best she could. With that notion in mind, the Froslass sought to land a searing, crippling Will-O-Wisp. Following that, a howling Ominous Wind, followed by another Shadow Ball, hopefully one not so easily countered.

Missingno. Master- With Laugh now conscious, the Froslass is the only thing left standing between you and gruesome fate. The Doublade seemed to be even more powerful than the Gengar, but Laugh was in quite a mood. The Froslass was eager for revenge and there is no way she is going to let any harm befall you. Looking to cut the strength of the Doublade in half, she gathers a swarm of Will-O-Wisps and sends them towards the pair of blades. Surprisingly the Steel type makes little effort to dodge the attack, which leaves scorch marks on its scabbard. You smell something strange, it almost smells like burning cloth....

Laugh pushes her advantage, sweeping her arms forward as she whips up an Ominous Wind. The Super Effective attack tears through the Doublade, literally. The Doublade slowly breaks up, bits of cloth and cotton fly everywhere as the cleverly crafted Substitute is broken apart! Laugh is left shocked, caught by surprise she fails to spot the Doublade soaring above her, pommels glistening as it descends with speed. Laugh is struck hard by the Iron Head, which pushes her into the ground. The Froslass quickly forces the Doublade back, slamming it with a powerful Shadow Ball, but the Doublade seems to have the upper hand for now. It rises into the air, splitting up into numerous copies as it sets up a Double Team. Laugh shakes the dust off herself as she turns back to you, looking for guidance. You needed a way to overpower the Doublade, but with your Z Move already used, what options did you have?

Doublade made no effort to dodge the Will-O-Wisp, but Laugh wasn't surprised in the slightest. She knew good and well that No Guard was a Doublade's only possible Ability, and knew Will-O-Wisp was a good way to turn such an Ability against the Pokémon- sure, Laugh couldn't dodge Doublade's moves, but the reverse held true as well.

Being neither surprised by nor willing to squander such an advantage, the Froslass continued her onslaught, this time with a forceful Ominous Wind that just ripped right through Doublade. Literally. Actually ripped it to shreds. The burnt cloth smell made a lot more sense now- both Terri and Laugh had chalked it up to part of those purple tassels being caught up in the Will-O-Wisp, but no- the Will-O-Wisp hadn't hit Doublade at all, but rather a Substitute it had created without anyone noticing! Suddenly, the advantage was Doublade's, and the possessed swords were quick to capitalize, landing a forceful Iron Head. Terri gave a gasp as her girlfriend was slammed to the ground, but Laugh almost immediately retaliated with Shadow Ball for good, super effective damage.

Then, however, things got weird. Doublade rose into the air, and two swords became four, and then they became more. Terri and Laugh were thrown by this tactic, and not without reason. "Wha...?" Laugh murmured. "It used Double Team? But why would it waste its energy like that?"

"To catch us off-guard, no doubt," Terri responded. "Unless..." Terri's mysterious mind was working a mile a minute throughout this fight. She might never give Laugh commands in battle, for the two were quite in agreement that theirs was a relationship decidedly unlike that of Pokémon and Trainer, but she was constantly on the lookout for anything that might escape Laugh's notice for one reason or another, something that could help her out in the battle. And something had indeed occurred to Terri. Doublade's team of three that he'd used against Terri had fallen. Phantump's repeat performance was shut down handily. Lampent's triumphant return was anything but. And Gengar's debut didn't end so hot for it. But that wasn't everything that that Doublade had had up its grotesquely commandeered corpse's sleeves, now was it? The Sword Pokémon still had one ally, maybe not in peak fighting condition, but surely having recovered enough to maybe sneakily give its leader a helping hand...

"Palossand..." Terri murmured. If Doublade really did intend for Double Team to work, then it couldn't have No Guard anymore. It would make sense, wouldn't it, for the thing to want to get rid of an Ability that its kind is well-known for having access to nothing but, and an Ability so easily used against it, for that matter. And Palossand could learn Skill Swap, so that definitely fit! But where would Palossand be hiding...? "Laugh!" exclaimed Terri. "Blizzard from above- straight down!"

Such was the urgency in Terri's tone of voice that Laugh didn't even pause to question having been given an order. Clearly Terri had figured something out, and so the Froslass ascended. Once she was above Doublade and all of his copies, she'd exhale a howling Blizzard straight down. Not only would this hopefully wipe out all the copies and do a little something to Doublade as well, but Terri was hoping this would also hit the ground, where Terri suspected Palossand might have been hiding. Though Laugh wasn't sure what Terri was up to, she trusted her completely, and also intended to follow up with another Will-O-Wisp, hopefully one that would hit the real deal this time, and then go for yet another Shadow Ball.
