As the summoned trainers select their champions, Pumpkaboo watches with beady eyes. Determined to strike fear into their hearts, the oversized pumpkin roars as best she can - but the resulting noise is more endearing than anything else, even with the considerable size of the behemoth. As if to punctuate this sentiment, the Staravia of Zorchic flashes with an intense purple aura, Dynamax energy surging to empower the Flying type.

: So that other Ice Drama Queen thinks she can hog all the glory... This oversized gourd thinks it's so tough, time to show it a real SNARL (55 BP)!

Let's see if we can't start off some shenanigans with a Future Sight! (120 BP; hits two turns later at turn end, bypassing Protect and the like; Breaks two Shields)

- - - - -

Spooky, even though he was posed for battle, was trembling in fright at the sight of his foe. When Curtis had said 'three star raids are a walk in the park', Spooky thought that facing off against a giant eldritch plant in the shape of a pumpkin would not be very scary at all! As it turns out, anything with a mouth that's big enough to eat you does in fact qualify as scary. Then- there was a pat on his head, rustling his fur and he could hear the voice of the trainer reassuring him.

"Don't worry, just imagine that it's a big blow of salad- because that's what you're about to do to it, turn it into a big bowl of salad. It just doesn't know that yet."

...trying to reassure him. A big bowl of salad's still scary, what if you fell in! Oh no, he could just see in his imagination some the smaller and more curious members of his pack (and also a couple of the bigger ones) climbing up and getting stuck!

The Absol's train of thought was interrupted by a light shake.

"Spooky! Spooky." His trainer said, before mumbling something under his breath. His trainer leaned down to his ear, "Spooky, alright just focus. It's the dummy we have out back, just bigger alright. Now, here's what you're gonna do. You're gonna start with a Future Sight, you even have to get close."

Future Sight? Oh, alright... he could do that. Spooky focused his mind and peering into the future. He foresaw a large burst of energy slamming into the foe- though not much else. His eyes glowed for a moment, then the vision suddenly vanished along with the energy that was used to summon it.

At the same time, his teammates were launching attacks of his own- the giant ghost-plant reeling back unhappily.

Though now, here came the counterattack!

Keith gave a chuckle as he looked up at the gigantic gourd. He'd heard of Super Size Pumpkaboo, but this was ridiculous! "Alright- Autumn, let's go!" he exclaimed, throwing the Pumpkin Ball he'd been holding in his hand, from which his chosen Pokémon emerged in a flash of light. To the casual onlooker, Autumn would look basically like an oddly-colored Bulbasaur, but Keith knew there was more to it than that- the Pumpkasaur species was an enigma, a variation of Bulbasaur discovered in the Fizzytopia region about which precious little remained known due to the species's extreme rarity. Similar in many ways, yet different enough that it was considered a separate species all its own.

Autumn looked up at the Pumpkaboo, her pumpkin's face contorted into an angry red scowl. Normally cheerful and easygoing, the Pumpkasaur was becoming unusually competitive faced with another pumpkin Pokémon. "Saaaaur," she growled. "Pumpka, Pumpkasaur!" She sounded more than ready to kick things off, and if Keith didn't order an attack soon, he got the feeling Autumn might just take matters into her own vines- highly unusual for her, but then, so was her reaction to this Pumpkaboo in the first place, so yeah, he wasn't putting it past her at this point.

Keith grinned, chuckling at Autumn's eagerness. "That Pumpkaboo might be bigger, but you're better!" he declared. "Ready to show 'em what you're made of, Autumn?"

"Pumpka!" nodded Autumn.

Keith nodded in return. "Then let's get this party started! Infestation attack!" he commanded.


OOC: Autumn used Infestation (20 BP; causes additional damage over the next 4-5 turns).

Raid Boss Pumpkaboo
★★★

Health Gauge: 89%
Shields Up: 0
Status: SpAtk -1, Infestation (4), Future Sight (2)


Raid Boss Attack Summary

Attack 1: Rock Slide (75 BP)

MM, Pumpkasaur: 225 HP
Chris, Absol: 225 HP
Zorchic, Staravia: 187 HP
Yuki, Sneasel: 287 HP
Attack 2: Will-o-Wisp (0 BP)
Chris, Absol: 225 HP [Burned]

Raid Challengers
Missingno. Master, Pumpkasaur: 225 HP
ChrisClark13, Absol: 206 HP [Burned]
Zorchic, Staravia: 187 HP
lilboocorsola, Sneasel: 287 HP

The battle commences, Pumpkaboo wearing an anticipatory grin - though this amusement is swiftly dashed. Midna is the first to voice her disdain, snarling viciously at her oversized foe. The guttural contempt chills Pumpkaboo to her very core, and Autumn is eager to add insult to injury. Churning the surrounding air, the Pumpkasaur unleashes a grating din of small beige projectiles, the gritty particles skittering harshly over the surface of the Dynamax Boss. Not content to simply sit by on the sidelines, Staravia whips up a thermal turbulence, and while seeming passive Spooky turns his attention to the future, eyes shining bright blue as he predicts calamity. Huffing with a pouting petulance, Pumpkaboo retaliates in kind, ripping free chunks of earth and pelting the four interlopers savagely. Some are hurt more than others - but Spooky suffers the worst of all, a tiny orb of flame exploding against his coat and burning him thoroughly.

It's time to DYNAMAX for multiple reasons!

Let's hit them with a Max Darkness! (110 BP Physical, off of Assurance (60 BP), lowers Sp. Def by 1 stage.)

- - - - -

Spooky's teammates did not hesitate in letting loose with attacks of their own. The imp let loose with a Snarl that was even scarier than the giant pumpkin before them, the plant monster let loose with some kind of prokective attack, and the raptor let loose with a wave of fiery air! The Pumpkaboo flew in a tantrum, using it's power to tear up the earth in front of it and throw it everyone! Spooky reeled back in anticipation of a nasty hit, though ended up backing into his Trainer who held him steady and weathered the attack alongside him.

He heard his trainer grunt in pain as they both took the hit. Spooky looked up with concern at Curtis, who just grinned back, "That wasn't that bad see? Let's just try not to take too many hits, alright? You gotta dodge." Just as Spooky was turning back to turn his focus back to the fight, he saw spooky blue flames heading for them. Not wanting Curtis to get burned, Spooky charged straight into the fires heading for them! Yelping in pain for a moment Spooky rose to his feet and barred his teeth- growling at the pain as he got back into a fighting stance and this time he didn't shake. Maybe, just maybe- he could do this!

- - -

Curtis looked on with a small smile, finally Spooky had gotten his head into the game. He was worried if the easily frightend Absol ever would to be honest.

And oh, would you look at that. His Dynamax Band is glowing with power! His smile turned into a grin- and unlike those other raids he had been in, this time he was going to take this chance!

"Spooky change of plans, it's time to Dynamax!" Curtis yelled out as he held up Spooky's Pokeball to the sky, making the power from the band flow into it and expanding it. He held up the enlarged ball, sucking the Absol into it and then threw it back out- the Dynamax and Pokeball energies resolving into a giant Absol!

"Now, Spooky. Hit 'em with the best Max Darkness you've got!"

Keith's mind was racing. Was now the right time? Would the battle progress at such a pace as to make this work? He didn't know. He couldn't know. Pumpkin Bomb was a lot like Future Sight- the name of the game was timing. The idea was to set up moves like that so that they hit the shields that the enemies set up at a later time, but that wasn't a strategy Keith had employed at all in his career. He wasn't sure how well he could do with timing this- perhaps this wasn't the right time at all. Was it possible that the right time had passed them by already?

Regardless, the fact remained that they had to do something- everyone else had already gone for their attacks, Pumpkaboo was about to fight back, they had to act NOW!

"Pumpkaa! Pumpkasaaaaur!" Autumn urged Keith. She wasn't generally the impatient sort, but the presence of another pumpkin had kindled her competitiveness, and she was quite eager to show up this giant ghoulish gourd. Also, she got the feeling Keith needed a little something to spur him into action- his indecisiveness was becoming clear to his Pokémon.

Keith nodded- he knew good and well this was the time for action, and was grateful for his Pumpkasaur snapping him out of his bout of indecisiveness. And with everyone else having launched attack after attack, chipping away at Pumpkaboo's hit points, the way forward was clear now that he actually thought about it. "Autumn, use Assurance!" he commanded.


OOC: Autumn used Assurance (60 BP; doubles the damage if the target had already taken damage in the same turn).

Raid Boss Pumpkaboo
★★★

Health Gauge: 71%
Shields Up: 2
Status: SpAtk -1, SpDef -1, Infestation (3), Future Sight (1), Sunny Day (4)


Raid Boss Attack Summary

Attack 1: Skitter Smack (70 BP)

Zorchic, Staravia: 134 HP (SpAtk -1)
Attack 2: Max Flare (140 BP)
Yuki, Sneasel: 98 HP

Raid Challengers
Missingno. Master, Pumpkasaur: 225 HP
ChrisClark13, Absol: 313 HP [Burned] [Dynamaxed (2 turns remaining)]
Zorchic, Staravia: 134 HP (SpAtk -1)
lilboocorsola, Sneasel: 98 HP

Looking to emulate the prankster pumpkin, Spooky surges with an immense amount of energy, drastically increasing in size. The Absol ushers a defiant roar as he stares his opponent down, the Pumpkaboo shuffling uneasily having finally met their match. Spooky is swift to capitalise, conjuring shifting darkness and engulfing the Raid Boss within the fulminating turbulence. Buoyed by this, Staravia redoubles his efforts, whipping up a scorching gust and roasting the surface of Pumpkaboo's body. A devilish grin on her face, Midna opts for the extreme opposite, dousing Pumpkaboo with a frigid breeze - and without warning, the Ghost goes on the defensive, summoning a bulwark just as Autumn lashes out fiercely with darkened vines. Frowning, realising that playtime was irrevocably over, Pumpkaboo begins violent retribution. A resisted hit sees Staravia cowed briefly - but Midna is then caught full by a cataclysmic inferno, the Sneasel whimpering as the overhead sun intensifies.

Dynamax initiative: Chris, Absol

Max Darkness! (110 BP, is breaking shield so other modifiers don't matter)

- - -

Spooky felt unlike anything ever before! He felt no shakes at all and there was this strange power tingling in his fur. After getting unexpected sucked back into his ball- he was back out and now everyone else was small! The small ghost-pumpkin was tiny now compared to him and now so were other others. When? How everyone gotten so small? He leaned down to sniff his tiny, tiny Trainer- then up at their surroundings. Then it dawned on him, everyone hadn't gotten smaller- he had gotten bigger! So this is the Dynamax thing his Trainer had tried to get him to pay attention to!

"Spooky! Spooky! Stop lollygagging and use a Max Darkness!"

A shout calling his name came from below, from his tiny Trainer. Oh right. He was in a battle, he should put this energy coursing through his body to good use! But, the Pumpkaboo looked so harmless now. But, it was still big compared to the others and soon he'd be small again too. So best to get this over with before the pumpkin becomes scary again.

Spooky let out a big roar, scaring the plant that had so recently been scaring him. Ironic. Though seeing it scared also bolsters the spirits of his allies and it was a fight after all... and well, in a fight you have to do anything you can to win! Just like his Trainer is always teaching them.

The giant Absol's eyes glowed as he called forth his power, sending forth giant tendrils of darkness to slam into his foe- making it screech in displeasure.

Oh, that looked like it hurt- hopefully it would be okay afterwards...

As well, the Future Sight he had put in place should be coming true any moment now. Oh, it wasn't going to end up liking that...

The barrage of attacks forced Pumpkaboo to throw up a great barrier. Not only that, but it was so hasty in doing so that some of the attacks had already put great stress upon it. Keith was amazed- already it was looking like one good Max Move would shatter the thing! And at the rate they were going, he realized, by the time they got it to put up another shield, it might be just in time for the Future Sight to land. Pumpkin Bomb, he knew, took even longer- he had been right, the optimal moment had already come and gone. That ship has sailed, hit an iceberg, sank, and had a movie made about it.

With this, Keith was able to banish the notion of Pumpkin Bomb from his mind entirely- there'd be opportunities in the future to make use of that, he knew. For now, attacking the Pumpkaboo was the priority. Already, the Dynamaxed Absol was shattering what remained of the shield with a solid Max Darkness, while Jake's Staravia was following up with Heat Wave- of course! Keith realized it in an instant- Pumpkaboo's Max Flare! Nothing about seeing a Pumpkaboo using a Fire move surprised him- his mother-in-law's Gourgeist knew Fire Blast, for crying out loud. No, the big thing here was that Pumpkaboo had just blessed them all with sunny weather. Granted, it was also a blessing to itself, considering it obviously had Fire moves to work with, but it was still something they could take advantage of.

And that "they" most definitely included Keith and his Pumpkasaur. "Autumn, Mystical Fire!" Keith declared.

"Pumpkaaaaaaa!!" Autumn exclaimed. The light shining from the carved face on her pumpkin flashed brightly, and a magical plume of flame erupted from the pumpkin's mouth.


OOC: Autumn used Mystical Fire (75 BP; boosted by sun).

Raid Boss Pumpkaboo
★★★

Health Gauge: 45%
Shields Up: 3
Status: Infestation (2), Sunny Day (3)


Raid Boss Attack Summary

Attack 1: Shockwave (0 BP)


Attack 2: Rock Slide (75 BP)
MM, Pumpkasaur: 150 HP
Chris, Absol: 238 HP
Zorchic, Staravia: 21 HP
Yuki, Sneasel: 0 HP

Raid Challengers
Missingno. Master, Pumpkasaur: 150 HP
ChrisClark13, Absol: 207 HP [Burned] [Dynamaxed (1 turns remaining)]
Zorchic, Staravia: 21 HP
lilboocorsola, Sneasel: 0 HP [Must sit out one round until fully recovered]

With the smell of blood in the air, Spooky continues to go for the jugular. Thick with blackened energy, the Absol roars determinedly, the guttural sound sending an ominous chill through all those gathered as Pumpkaboo is ripped apart. Staggered, the Ghost can do nothing as the Raiders continue to pummel their opponent. Staravia blusters raging hot wind for a third time, while Autumn summons ethereal flame to buffet the Raid Boss. Intensified by the sun, the blow leaves quite a mark on the pumpkin - but the worst is yet to come. With a sinister chuckle, Midna slices at Pumpkaboo with shadow encased claws - landing a devastating critical hit! This seems to infuriate Pumpkaboo though, who discharges a strange shock wave before ripping the surrounding terrain into debris. As the dust clears... one has fallen. Luckily for the Raiders, payback is swift. A blinding orb of pale blue energy forms abruptly, smashing into Pumpkaboo and triggering shields for a second time.

This time when the enemy ghost-pumpkin sent out a Rock Slide, Spooky roared in defiance as he lowered his head to face the attack head-on! (He meant to yowl, but due to his Dynamaxed size it came out as roar.) This time, he would shield his Trainer entirely from the attack instead of needing his Trainer to steady him! Even though, due to the size difference, the thrown rocks more-or-less just splashed at his ankles- Spooky felt like he did a good job this time taking the attack!

Though worryingly, one of their teammates had been taken out! And then the weird ice-imp wearing a funny hat vanished? Spooky leaned down and sniffed around in concern, trying to find them.

"Spooky! Spooooky! Don't worry about them, they'll be back up and ready to fight before you know it! That's how these raids work! Just focus on the Pumpkaboo! The others will take care of themselves!"

Oh, he supposed his Trainer was right. He did actually remember his human going over how these fights worked at some point... Dynamaxing, reviving, even cheers had an effect on the fight due to the strange energies involved.

His concern assuaged, the Absol turned to face his foe once more!

"Alright! Now, get in one last Max Darkness! Show that pumpkin what you've got!"

Spooky roared and let forth more waves of darkness to attack the pumpkin! If it wasn't gonna let up in this fight, the only nice thing to do was not to let up either!

"Saaaaur," growled Autumn. She glared up at the Pumpkaboo, who had just bombarded them all with a Rock Slide. She personally was alright, but Jake's Staravia was faring pretty poorly, and Jessica's Sneasel had been outright knocked out. At first Keith thought Jessica would use this time to chip away at the shield, but as soon as he saw her healing Jake's Staravia instead, he realized that was the right move- Staravia wasn't taking much more attacks in its current state, that much was obvious. But right now, the chance to attack had once again come their way, and Keith could see Autumn was more than willing to take that opportunity.

"Autumn, hold up," Keith said warningly. "Not just yet..." As he spoke, he kept a wary eye on the Pumpkaboo's latest shield. They'd gotten it to the point of putting another one up so soon- he was absolutely right in not ordering Pumpkin Bomb when he'd first thought to, he realized.

"Puuumpkaaaa..." growled Autumn, visibly shaking in anticipation. She wanted to attack, but she also knew her Trainer had a very valid reason for holding off on giving the order.

"Not much longer," Keith murmured as the Absol landed a Max Darkness. And finally, as Staravia's Wing Attack shattered the remains of the barrier, both Trainer and Pumpkasaur knew their opportunity was now- even if this wasn't gonna hit as hard as Heat Wave, it was gonna make sure Pumpkaboo's attacks- or the special ones at least- weren't gonna hit them as hard, and that was always important. "NOW!" Keith declared. "Mystical Fire, let's go!"

"PumpkaSAAAAAAAAUR!!!" Autumn exclaimed. Once again, her pumpkin face flashed with harsh light before the mouth spewed forth a magical plume of flame.


OOC: Autumn used Mystical Fire (75 BP; boosted by the sun).

With the end in sight, the Raiders work on breaking the remaining bulwark protecting Pumpkaboo. Staravia receives a cheering boon, rejuvenating the Flying type as Spooky unleashes one final, raging Max Darkness. The shields splinter terribly, but remain standing. Staravia, buoyed by his healing, rushes his target with a determined frenzy, whipping his wings against the bulwark with gusto. With this the barrier shatters, and Autumn is left grinning, a mischievous glint in her eye. The Pumpkasaur again summons a flickering orb, the fireball brimming with otherworldly light. As it smashes over Pumpkaboo, the Ghost is aghast - and quick to respond. Thickened sludge envelops Spooky, empowering his assailant - and then Pumpkaboo explodes with violent white light. A searing beam engulfs Staravia, reducing the bird to little more than a blackened silhouette, leaving the Raiders battered and bruised... but not yet out.

Dynamax initiative: Expired

  • Trainers may only list 1 order per round. They are also permitted to using 1 item in lieu of an attack.
  • Dynamax Initiative will select a trainer at random. If a trainer has initiative, they may choose to Dynamax their Pokemon for a duration of 3 turns. Dynamaxed Pokemon may only select a Max Attack of a corresponding type from their registered moveset, or Max Guard in place of status moves.
  • When issuing an attack, please state the attack's unbuffed Base Power (BP).
  • If a hold item or ability’s effect is activated in the present round as a result of the previous round’s damage calculation or the present round’s orders, please state it clearly in your response.
  • Roleplaying your orders is optional, but $250 may be collected for responses of 250 words or greater, and Bond will accumulate only for the trainer’s active Pokemon in battle.
  • You have until Saturday, 10th October to place your order.

Let's try to last one more round! We need to be up next round so we can finish it off! Also, one less KO will mean we win!

Detect! (0 BP; Blocks all effects from moves that target this Pokemon, but Max Moves still do 25% damage.)

- - - - -

After the Dynamax energy left Spooky all at once, causing him to shrink down to his normal size, the Absol was left exhausted and somewhat bewildered. He was feeling so powerful and strong a few moments ago, but now he could keenly feel the extent of his injuries- especially that burn that the ghost-pumpkin had put on him at the start of the fight.

He started to waver in place and when it looked like he might fall over, he felt a hand on his side- steading him. He knew that it was his Trainer giving him a helping hand, even before he looked back at him. He saw a face locked deep in concentration and concern(?) as it stared down their opponent.

His trainer ruffled the fur on his back and gave it a pat a few moments later, seemingly having come up with one of the famous 'crazy plans' the others on his team liked to talk about.

"Alright, Spooky. Use Detect, you need to make it through this next wave of attacks if we're going to win this. I know you can do it."

With those parting words and another firm pat, his trainer retreated- letting Spooky know that it was time to get back into the battle. He got back into a battle stance, hissing as his beaten muscles and hide stung.

Spooky focused through the burn and his wounds, his eyes glowing as he trying to foresee the counterattack(s) his trainer was sure would be coming his way...

Autumn might have been the only one to actually land a hit on the Pumpkaboo itself, but it was a pretty significant hit, no question. A Fire move, launched under bright sunlight, and one that lowered Pumpkaboo's Special Attack, no less. However, it had a way around this debuff, as it demonstrated with a potent Max Ooze. Keith knew good and well the side effect of that particular Max Move, and knew that Pumpkaboo had just cancelled out the effect of Mystical Fire. Following that, Pumpkaboo made use of the bright sunlight in a decidedly less incendiary fashion; a Solar Beam that landed instantaneously. Nobody was knocked out by Pumpkaboo's attacks, but Staravia wasn't looking too far off at this point, and Absol's burn looked to be catching up to it. In stark contrast, Sneasel was good as new, and launched a forceful Dark Pulse.

Keith saw this as their chance- Pumpkaboo had no more shields left in it, its defenses were down, and as it was just hit by a move, this was gonna hurt even more! "Now, Autumn! Use Assurance!" Keith commanded his Pumpkasaur, feeling very glad he'd deemed it necessary to teach Autumn such an assortment of moves not that long before all this.

"Saaaur! Pumpka!" grinned Autumn. Even her pumpkin's face had resumed grinning, now that victory seemed so imminent. She prepared to land a powerful blow that would take an especially large toll on this Pumpkaboo, now that it had just taken damage a moment ago.


OOC: Autumn used Assurance (60 BP; doubles damage if the target already took damage this turn).
