Grovyle Intermediate Trainer Battle: Missingno. Master vs. Gemini Spark

It was a cool March morning and cloud blanketed the skies. The Stardust fields still shone brightly though finding even the barest of light making them beautiful. The grasses were covered with a light dew making them cool and refreshing to walk through. Most of the Pokemon were out of hibernation but still sleepy with only a few scampering around stopping to view the two newcomers who approached. They were friendly enough but there was thin tension between them, one held between two competitors about to battle. They approach the famous battlefield and find the familiar referee waiting for them with the ever present smile on her face.

"Hello again Keith, and you too Hyrem its been a while. I hope you like my choice of arena, sometimes simple is best and the Stardust Fields are greats for just showcasing the power and beauty of your Pokemon without the arena getting in the way. Lets go over the rules."
Missingno. Master vs. Gemini Spark
Intermediate Trainer Battle (Pokemon from Lv’s 26-50 used only)
1 vs. 1
48 Hr DQ Period
Arena: Cloud Garden's Stardust Fields: Gently rolling fields spanning as far as the eye can see. This battlefield is a 50m x 50m section of the large grassy plain with one lone Cherry Blossom tree standing in the centre..
She allowed them time to prepare themselves whist retrieving a coin from her pocket. She assigned Missingno. Master to Heads and Gemini Spark to Tails and gave it a quick flip: "Heads".
Once she was sure they understood the rules she went through the order of play:
– I need PM’s from both of you including your Pokemon, their stats, any healing items being declared, and your attacks for the first round (I am happy with up to 3 being used per round)
- I will then ref the first round.
- Missingno. Master will then order their attacks for the next round.
- Gemini Spark then orders their attacks.
- I ref the round, and the next round attack orders switch and so on and so forth till we have a winner!
"And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above”

Upon hatching one of many Poison Nature Eggs he had collected over the course of his travels, Keith was pleasantly surprised to find one of them hatching into a female Bulbasaur, arguably one of the rarest Poison-types known in the world- a predominantly male species, at that! Pomona's personality is perpetually optimistic and sunny. Easily the best quality about her is her eternal willingness to make friends with absolutely everyone. She will eagerly approach anyone and introduce herself, willing to make friends with anyone, no matter how sinister or downright scary or otherwise unapproachable they may seem. Indeed, Pomona seems to be more prone to try and befriend the scarier and less personable Pokemon. While many on Keith's team chalk it up to her Naive nature and/or a lack of intelligence, Keith, along with Peeves and Luna, theorize that Pomona has a tendency to gravitate towards those who are most in need of a friend.

Needless to say, Pomona gets along very well with a vast majority of the team, with Peeves being her best friend, especially after she cheered him up when he was trying to decide whether it was best to use his powers to scare others constantly. On the other hand, some of the less personable Pokemon on Keith's team, such as Cyanide and Myrtle, are less than impressed with her perpetual cheerfulness. Not that this deters her, of course.

Pomona has made it openly known that she does not want to evolve into Venusaur. She enjoys playing with other Pokemon, and fears that the sheer size of a Venusaur would not only hinder her ability to play, but also scare off potential friends. She also believes that Ivysaur is much cuter than Venusaur. She in fact intends to use her smaller size and cuteness to her advantage in battle.

After seemingly helping Neville, an evil and mischievous Stunfisk briefly under Keith's ownership, to reform, the Stunfisk showed his true colors and blasted Overheats everywhere, including one which roasted Pomona's flower. This plus the inherent betrayal of the action itself left Pomona with a fear of all Stunfisk. However, she was cured of this fear by Rubeus, Keith's current Stunfisk.
This time around, the referee had selected the arena on which Keith was to do battle. And it was this arena, the Stardust Fields, where Keith and Hyrem were to do battle. Hyrem called out Sarkhan, his Druddigon, while Keith selected a Poke Ball of his own.

"OK, Pomona," he called as he threw the sphere. "I choose you!" In a flash of light, there appeared Pomona, Keith's Ivysaur, who cheerfully glanced all around before noticing Sarkhan. She extended a vine to happily wave at the Druddigon and his trainer, before assuming a more combative stance, her grin widening as she prepared for the battle.

"Wow, Pomona's really lookin' ready fer dis," remarked the Meowth on Keith's shoulder. "Dis is gonna be interestin'."

"I'm sure it will be, Meowth," Keith nodded. "OK, Pomona, use Sleep Powder!" he called. "Then tie Sarkhan up with your String Shot, and follow up with Leech Seed!"

It is said that Druddigon are often difficult to train, but Hyrem is confident he will someday be able to calm this Cave Pokemon down enough and gain a powerful force in battle and a very loyal friend, with some help from Sera, of course. Sarkhan feels a close friend in Amethyst since they share similar prideful attitudes, although he knows she has much bigger interest in a male Seviper named Marvolo and is content with being her battle partner.

{Just to clarify, MM is fine with held items, so Sarkhan's held item should be taken into account for this battle. Thanks!}

This was Hyrem's first battle in the Stardust Fields, but it was also the first time he was using a Pokemon of a higher level than most of his team. For Sarkhan, it would be his second battle, his previous match resulting in a loss against a gutsy Corphish who only won because of his Ice-based attacks; he'd have to get back at that cray sometime. For now, this would hopefully be a battle to at least put Sarkhan back at even. Three snakes--Seshiro, Shisato, and Amethyst--slithered behind the two, interested in how the battle would turn out. Fortunately, for Hyrem, this would be a battle against Keith, a long-time friend of his, and Hyrem was able to pull a win last time the two trainers faced each other. But what sort of tricks did the more experienced trainer and Pomona, his Ivysaur, have up their sleeves? They were about to find out soon enough.

"Hello again Keith, and you too Hyrem, it's been a while," said Stacey, the referee for the battle. "I hope you like my choice of arena, sometimes simple is best and the Stardust Fields are greats for just showcasing the power and beauty of your Pokemon without the arena getting in the way. Lets go over the rules." Once they were done, Hyrem took his position in the trainer box, Sarkhan approached the tree in the center of the battlefield, and the snakes slithered over to where the other Pokemon were spectating, probably making certain residents there very nervous, but Amethyst did promise to behave herself ... as long as she wasn't bothered, at least. "All right, Sarkhan, let's see if you can redeem yourself and get a win!" Hyrem said to his Druddigon, to which he roared and puffed out his chest before turning towards Pomona. "Good luck t' ya, but I ain't goin' easy, even on a flower girl like you!"

"Ready, Sarkhan?" said Hyrem, who got a nod in response. "Let's synch up and battle, then! Try Honing your Claws on that tree in the middle before using Rock Tomb and Scary Face to really stop them in their tracks!"
Both trainers were keen to get this battle under way and after listening to the rules they took their place in their trainer boxes. Keith send out a beautiful Ivysaur by the name of Pomona and for Hyrem is was his fierce Druddigon called Sarkhan. Both Pokemon sized each other up and when the referee was sure they were ready she raised her flag.

Sarkhan stomped over to the tree and began to Hone his Claws upon them boosting his attack power. Pomona gets close enough to release a fine indigo wave of Sleep Powder that coats Sarkhan's skin. He coughs as he breathes it in making him drowsy. He shakes his head trying to clear it and stomps his foot on the ground causing the soil to erupt around Pomona in a Rock Tomb. She blinks in surprise at her soil prison and wonders what to do, she couldn't see or hit Sarkhan with the Rock Tomb around her. She hears a thud as Sarkhan falls to the ground asleep.

Well that was certainly an interesting start to the match.

While Hyrem had Sarkhan out, Keith had brought out his adorable Ivysaur known as Pomona. Now that he could finally see an Ivysaur in battle, he wanted to check Dexelle for additional information:

Ivysaur, the Seed Pokemon, and the evolved form of Bulbasaur. The plant stays with this Pokemon even as it evolves from Bulbasaur. In fact, it grows to reveal a bud, but as a result the plant becomes heavier and Ivysaur is unable to stand on its hind legs anymore. However, its hind legs also develop in order to support the extra weight. As Ivysaur continues to spend more and more time in the sunlight, the plant absorbs nutrients and starts to smell sweetly, indicating that it is ready to bloom into a beautiful flower and trigger its final evolution.

"Aw, so does that mean Zyra won't be able to jump onto my leg when she evolves? Oh well, at least she'll be an awesome Ivysaur! Though for now, we've got Pomona to deal with, so let's go, Sarkhan!"

"Drud drud!" grunts the Sarkhan as he goes and uses the tree to mark his new territory, even Honing his Claws in the process. Problem was ... he should have focused on his opponent. Yeah, Pomona took the opportunity for an early status and released a thick cloud of Powder from her flower onto Sarkhan who was so close there was no way he could get out of the way before it fell all over the dragon. As Sarkhan started to grow tired, he was still able to trap Pomona under a Rock Tomb so she wouldn't be able to attack again, but unfortunately Sarkhan fell Asleep! Not good, Pomona could do whatever she wanted unless he woke up soon!

"Oh, bad! Sarkhan, you've gotta wake up, quick! If you can wake up, use Firestream, then Chip Away and Thunder Fang for some good damage, maybe some status conditions!"

Round 2

Pomona hears her trainer's cries through the soil of the tomb surrounding her and she backs off until her butt touches one edge. She bears down and charges into the wall before her using all her Strength to knock it down. The noise wakes Sarkhan up who looks around groggily as Hyrem cheers happily. He spots Pomona standing before the remains of his tomb and he picks himself up grunting before breathing out a Firestream right at her. The boiling hot bubbles smack into her popping on contact making her cry out in agony. A particularly hot one leave a red hot burn across Pomona's side increasing her pain further.

Pomona shudders as the effects of the attack wear of and glares at Sarkhan through slitted eyes. She sends a String Shot from her bulb wrapping Sarkhan's arms to his chest and slowing him down. Sarkhan pulls at the string but is unable to free his arms so is unable to use his Chip Away attack frustrating him to no end. Pomona carries on with her assault and sends a shot of brown/purple Sludge at Sarkhan making him grimace and back off trying to shake the substance off his skin. He was lucky not to be poisoned.

He stomps over to Pomona and stands over her as she looks up at his form gulping in fear. He opens his mouth and electric energy spark around his teeth. He chomps down on her bulb with his Thunder Fang but luckily she was resistant to the electricity even if it did hurt.

Hyrem knew that Pomona wasn't going to stay under the Rock Tomb for long, and indeed she is able to break out of it on sheer Strength, but Sarkhan does wake up from the loud noise and gets on his hands and knees to use one of his newer moves. It wasn't an attack like Dragonbreath or Flamethrower, but the scalding bubbles of the Firestream attack he blew quickly made their way over to Pomona and popped against her for lots of damage and even a burn! However, as Sarkhan stands up completely he found his arms suddenly tied up by Pomona's String Shot, frustrating Sarkhan as his Speed lowered and he couldn't break free of the silk so was unable to Chip Away more at Pomona. This was an opportunity for Pomona to spit some nasty Sludge his way, which stunk so badly that he had to take a moment to shake it off, irritating him even further. He was able to take this irritation and vent it toward a Thunder Fang, his mouth charged with electricity as he clamps down on her bulb with his mouth, sending the electric current through her. She was resistant to the attack though, and it failed to paralyze while Sarkhan still had the webbing around his arms to fuss with.

"Sarkhan, try to Cut yourself free of that webbing on you, then show her just how angry you are with Glare and Dragon Rage! You're doing great so far, keep up the good work!"

Pomona's String Shot had done its work, but Sarkhan had landed a nasty hit with Firestream, which also left Pomona with a burn. As the Ivysaur felt the burn on her side, she shuddered as very vivid memories of a fire-breathing Stunfisk rushed into her mind... But no! She couldn't dwell on that, not now! She was in a battle! She therefore stayed focused and was able to carry out the rest of her attacks for the round.

Keith, meanwhile, knew that Sarkhan was getting angry, and that an angry dragon was not a pleasant thing to be around. He figured it might be time to put into action a strategy Pomona had always been willing to try.

"Alright, Pomona, use Charm!" Keith called out. "Then go for Captivate, and follow up with Attract!"

Round 3

Things looked to be going Sarkhan's way even if his arms were tied up from Pomona's String Shot. He was still standing over the Ivysaur and his claws elongate and glow white as he cranes his hands up to try and Cut the string tying him up. Pomona hopes to calm him down by using her Charms but the dragon is too busy slicing up the string around his body and he roars as he free's himself. Pomona looks a little worried now. She tries instead this time to Captivate him but he fixes her with his Glare making her stop her actions and shudder in fear. It doesn't paralyse her as she's burnt but it halts her move.

Sarkhan grins and brings his head back generating a fireball in his mouth before launching the Dragon Rage at Pomona snapping her out of her terrified stupor as she's forced across the arena. She shakes her head and stumbles forward before winking at Sarkhan, this one had better work. She sends little pink hearts towards the dragon and they swirl around him before touching him and making him glow pink. Both trainers look on in anxious anticipation, did it work? She did look a little beaten up but Sarkhan sighs and lays down swooning over the gorgeous Ivysaur, she had some luck at last.

"Yes!" Keith said to himself, grinning as Pomona's Attract did its job, even if Charm and Captivate had failed. Pomona smiled as well, giggling to herself as she saw how the powerful Druddigon was now swooning over her.

"Now we's gettin' somewheres," Meowth stated.

"Yeah, we are!" Keith nodded, his strategy playing out in his mind. "Pomona, use your Charm attack! Then go for Captivate, and then hit him with your PoisonPowder! Let's do this!"

As Pomona tried to Charm her way into Sarkhan's heart, she was ignored as he was too busy Cutting up the String Shot tying him up. Eventually he freed himself, and as the Ivysaur tries next to show some Captivating style, Sarkhan's Glare made it clear he wasn't going to have any of it. Pomona is stopped in her tracks which leaves her open to the full force of the Dragon's Rage, the dragon-shaped fire knocking her across the field. However! Pomona then sent some pink hearts flying around Druddigon. What were these for? Suddenly, they popped against him, and he felt ... strange. Deep down in his heart, something welled up inside, and he was overcome with some sort of emotion. He couldn't quite figure out what it was, but he took another look at Pomona, and right now ... she was pretty darn good-looking. In fact, you could say she was ... Attractive. Now, almost in a trance he didn't have the desire to get out of, he walked close to the ... sigh, beautiful ... Ivysaur and laid himself down beside her. "He... he... hey," he stammered as he felt his swooning over Pomona become almost involuntary ... or ... maybe not so involuntary.

The snakes at the sidelines were plenty entertained, Amethyst sporting a wide grin in particular. "Called it~!" she hissed towards the two Ekans triumphantly. "I guess that means you two owe me a dozen eggs!"

"Haha, I guess so!" Seshiro chuckled, while Shisato just giggled to herself. It was a friendly bet the couple made with their "sister", and there were no harsh feelings between the Poison-types at all.

Hyrem put his hand up to his face to hide his own chuckle. Oh man, you sure have a great sense of timing, don't you, Sarkhan! Hopefully you don't end up embarrassing yourself because of this battle! "Okay, we'll play your game then!" he said out loud with a smirk. "Hey, Sark! I think that burn of Pomona's might be itching her, so Hone your Claws again first--maybe you can use their sharpness to impress your new friend--then see if your Scratching can 'soothe' the burn! Then do another Rock Tomb, and make things really 'cozy' for her!"

Round 4

Sarkhan was making googly eyes at Pomona who was looking pleased with herself despite the pain she was in. She would capitalise on this and her trainer thought the same but Hyrem wasn't as worried, he could snap his large dragon out of this he was sure. Pomona began to lay on the Charm and this time is was successful and Sarkhan feels his attack power drop. But he wanted to appear strong for his true love and walking over to the tree he begins to Hone his Claws showing off his strength trying to impress Pomona. She can take advantage of this, she tries to Captivate Sarkhan letting him know that she was impressed by his physical strength and would like to see more it discouraging him from using special attacks and he swoons nodding and feeling his special attack power drop.

Sarkhan is ordered to Scratch Pomona but the thought makes his blood run cold, he couldn't hurt her and he ignores his orders. Pomona smiles sweetly and lets loose a burst of purple Poison Powder from her flower that wafts over to Sarkhan and he breathes it in wanting to smell her scent but he coughs violently feeling suddenly very ill ... did she do this to him. He is conflicted and again ignores his master's orders as he coughs wondering if his true love meant to hurt him?

At this point Pomona all but had Sarkhan fully under the spell of love, thanks to her Charming and Captivating allure. Sarkhan did Hone his Claws to impress Pomona, but, despite the way Hyrem worded his orders, he ignored Hyrem, too focused on following the Ivysaur's scent, though now that he was Poisoned by Pomona's Powder he felt a conflict inside; was she using his love for her to take advantage of him?

"You're doing fine, Sarkhan, you're still ahead! But Pomona Poisoning you was very naughty of her! Go keep her in line with a little Scratch! Then go ahead and show off your Strength, and, if you still have feelings for her, let her know with a love Bite! Think of it as a ... a kiss! Yeah, a kiss! You'll be fine with that, right?"

Keith was pleasantly surprised to see that in spite of the PoisonPowder, Pomona's Attract was still in effect. Indeed, Pomona was giggling and blushing more than ever now... wait, blushing? Yep. As Keith looked on, he noticed that Pomona was blushing as she looked at the lovestruck Druddigon, and through her giggles, she seemed to be giving him a genuine look of concern.

"...Uh, Keith?" Meowth said before whispering something into his trainer's ear which caused Keith to whip his head around to give Meowth a look.

"Are you fucking kidding me?" Keith muttered to Meowth. Meowth shook his head. Keith turned his attention back to the battle as Hyrem gave further orders to his Druddigon. "Pomona, let's go!" Keith called. "Remember, this is a battle! And our strategy is playing out just like I wanted! Now let's go for it- three Venoshock attacks!"

Pomona nodded as she made an effort to focus on the battle, but even as she prepared to attack, the look she was giving the Druddigon seemed almost apologetic. But was this really just part of a ruse to try and keep Attract in effect... or was it something more genuine?

Round 5

Sarkhan was feeling rather poorly now as he coughed, the poison burning his lungs, did his true love really mean to hurt him? He stood there conflicted allowing Pomona the chance at a first strike. She releases a bright green wave of Venoshock that splatters against Sarkhan's chest making him roar in agony and back off. Why the little #?*&&!!! She had meant to hurt him after all, he would make her pay for this! He charges towards her and rakes his claws down her back with a Scratch making her wince in pain.

His anger fuels him forward and as Pomona shakes off the attack and charges up another Venoshock Sarkhan lifts her up startling her and throws her across the arena in a show of Strength. She lands with a heavy thud and grimaces from the pain of the landing. She gets back to her feet and spots Sarkhan charging towards her hate shining in his eyes. She lets loose her second Venoshock that strikes him in his chest making him stumble forward in pain but doesn't halt his momentum and he chomps down on her flower with a Bite making her cry out before he falls to his knees. Both Pokemon suffer from their respective burns and poisoning as the round comes to an end.

Both Pokemon took a lot of damage this round but it's Pomona that looks to be on her last legs ...

As Pomona let fly the first Venoshock, that was sufficient to break the effects of Attract, enraging Sarkhan. Once things started to settle down, it became clear that while both Pokemon had taken lots of damage, Pomona was definitely looking as though this next round would be the last one for her. Even after all the rage-fueled attacks Sarkhan threw at her, Keith couldn't help but notice that his Ivysaur was still blushing, and giving Sarkhan a somewhat apologetic look, even now that it was clear that Attract had ceased to take effect, so there was no way this could be any sort of ruse to keep Attract going...

"Told ya so," Meowth said to Keith, who nodded in response to this. Right now, however, the battle was what he was focusing on. Pomona looked pretty worn out, but then Keith remembered Pomona's Ability- Overgrow. Surely this was around the point where it would start to kick in? But then again, he reasoned, Sarkhan's natural resistance to Grass-type moves would surely offset the benefits... No, his best bet was to do what he did in the previous round, he knew.

"Hang in there, Pomona!" Keith called to his Ivysaur. "Three more Venoshocks!"

Pomona nodded, though was looking decidedly less excited at the prospect of causing more damage to Sarkhan. Still, she knew, a battle is a battle. She would see this through to the end.

One Venoshock from Pomona was enough to break the spell of Attract as the attack reacted with the poison already inside Sarkhan, causing him to convulse in agony. His immediate reaction was to rage, but he somehow felt something else inside as well ... betrayal. Betrayal of his feelings and emotions toward Pomona ... was she doing all this just for the sake of the battle? This tactic was something Leila, Daphne, or Amethyst would pull, but was even a nice, ditsy Ivysaur not above such trickery? She didn't look too thrilled to do it, though ... It didn't matter for now. She hurt him as a part of the battle they were having, and she would need to be paid back in kind for it. There would be time to sort out his feelings towards her after the victor was decided between them. Right now, he needed to get his rage out of his system, so he would start with a Scratch against her back, then he lifted Pomona up with his Strength and threw her to the other side of the arena. And he wasn't done with her yet. Despite being wracked with extreme pain by another Venoshock Sarkhan plows ahead and Bites down on her flower again before the poison gets to him again, though Pomona's burn soon followed. As Keith ordered three more Venoshocks, Hyrem knew that two of them alone took out half of his Druddigon's health while the poison was still in him; he wouldn't be able to take too many more attacks like that, so he needed to capitalize on Pomona's low health and wrap up this battle quickly.

"Sorry guys, but this'll hopefully be the last round! Sarkhan, let's finish up with Crossfire, then two cold servings of Revenge if that doesn't work!"

Even as Sarkhan heard the orders, even after the Attraction had worn off, he still felt reluctant to hurt Pomona. But like he said before he wasn't about to go easy on anyone, even if they were ... ditsy ... pretty ... Anyway, maybe after the battle was over, he could ... he could talk with her...

Round 6

This looked to be it for Pomona and although her Attract had worn off both Pokemon were giving each other shy coy looks, was there something deeper beneath the surface they were hiding? The referee grinned at the sight of budding love and prepared for the end of the battle. Sarkhan was the larger stronger opponent and it seemed inevitable that he would win despite Pomona's efforts, but she had put up a great fight and now she moved ready to show that she was no pushover and wouldn't go down so easily.

The familiar green acid of Venoshock shot out of her bulb coating Sarkhan once again making him suffer for the poison in his system. He growls against the pain and stares deep into the Ivysaur's eyes a little remorse there as the anger from the previous deception melts away. He uses the last of his fire energy to coat his arms in yellow-red flames. He walks up to Pomona giving her one last look before striking with his Cross Fire robbing her of the last of health.

"Pomona is unable to battle, Sarkhan and Hyrem are the winners!"

Congratulations to Gemini Spark and Sarkhan. You had the advantage of type, size and level in the match which helped you to win, not that your strategy wasn't sound either =p
For his victory Sarkhan receives this . He also receives two levels.

Commiserations to Missingno. Master and Pomona, you both did really well even against the odds and had a good strategy, your Venoshocks at the end nearly won it for you but it was a case of too little too late. Pomona receives 1 XP for participating in the battle.

{Yeah, your Attract and Poison combos were really potent, it's just that Sarkhan had just enough bulk to survive it. GG, tho, you were making me sweat at the end; Crossfire has a miss chance, and if Sarkhan missed with that attack, Pomona's second Venoshock would've downed him, so you came close to pulling off an upset!}

It became clear at this point who had the advantage in this battle, but that didn't mean anything when it came close to the end. Thanks to the poison inside Sarkhan, Pomona's attacks could potentially win if he didn't finish it quickly. She delivered another Venoshock to his system, causing even more damage and bringing his health into the danger zone, but he endured through the pain, then unleashed a Crossfire onto Pomona, knocking her out.

"Yes! Way to go, Sarkhan!" Hyrem cheered as he went over to congratulate his Druddigon for his first victory, with his three snakes joining him. "Well done, you two," hissed Amethyst toward the two battlers.

"Wait," said Sarkhan, holding up his claw to everyone approaching him before walking over to Pomona, his face showing a shade of red other than his normal burgundy. He was indeed glad that he had won, but he felt that there was somehow a more important priority than the battle. He also hoped that there would be a way to suppress a ... certain attribute of his that would ruin the moment he felt might happen. "You ... you okay?" he grunted quietly as he slowly brought his right hand over to her left cheek with hesitation, then exhaled in an attempt to relax himself before gently touching her cheek and rubbing it slowly. He'd never acted this way before, so his face flushed into brighter and brighter shades of red as he looked off to the side. Hyrem could even see a smile emerge on Sarkhan's face. He was happy. Happier even than he would be whenever he got a good scratching under the chin. Everyone looked on with happiness and dared not come closer, lest a tender moment be ruined.

Level Up! Druddigon grew from Lv. 38 to Lv. 40!
New Move! Druddigon learned Night Slash!
Druddigon won an Intermediate Battle Trophy!

{GG to you too. It was a real close battle, just how I like them.}

Keith had a feeling that the match had already been decided, but damn it, that's never stopped him before. It wouldn't be the first time a Pokemon would surprise everyone and come out on top against all odds... except that's not how this went. Keith winced as Pomona took the Crossfire attack, and the Ivysaur went down. Then, before Hyrem and his various snake Pokemon could go out to congratulate the Dragon-type, Sarkhan stopped them before approaching Pomona, his face a different shade of red than normal- he was blushing.

As Pomona slowly came to, the first thing she noticed was Sarkhan approaching her, and she too started to blush. After the Druddigon took a deep breath to relax himself, he slowly rubbed the Ivysaur's cheek with his right hand. Keith had warned Pomona about Sarkhan's Rough Skin before the battle, of course, so Pomona was pleasantly surprised to discover that the Ability didn't seem to be coming into effect here. The Ivysaur smiled up at Sarkhan. "Yeah," she said in response to his question. "Yeah, I'm... I'm OK. You know, you're... you're really strong," she added, still smiling, looking up at the Druddigon, feeling happy in a way she had never felt before. The fact that she had lost the battle, far from bothering her, hadn't even started to cross her mind.

Keith watched all this unfold, unable to suppress a grin. Meowth found himself so moved by the scene before him that he had to try to hold back his tears. Keith would return Pomona to her Poke Ball, shake Hyrem's hand, congratulate him on his victory and a battle well-fought... but not just yet. First, he would let Pomona have all the time she wanted with Sarkhan right now.

Congrats, GS! Thanks for reffing, Arc!

*Pomona gained 1 XP!*
