Lucario UPN PASBL: Gym Match - Connor vs. Celebii

Iron Island
Battles here take place deep in the depths of Iron Island. The cavern is huge and expansive, allowing a wide range of motion for even the largest of Pokemon. Despite being deep underground, the area is placed within a deeply cold climate, and the air itself is cold enough to sap the heat from Fire attacks, reducing their power slightly. The earth here is enriched with various metal ores, and this will result in Ground energy transmitting poorly through the surface, reducing their power. The cavern is well lit by moss which gives off a strange glow, meaning visibility is not an issue, and Solar Beam may be used, though only at normal capacity. The area is also permeated by a fluctuating magnetic field, which Steel type Pokemon are able to take advantage of. This will leave them much more agile than normal, due to their ability to adapt to the pull on their body.
A young trainer descends into the deep. Scouring Iron Island for this hidden cavern may have been quite the difficult task, but it is nothing compared to what lies before him. His body stiffens as the air grows colder, and his ragged breath becomes visible in the dim light. He shivers not only from the cold, but from the tremendous feeling of apprehension of what he has come here to do.

Cele slowly makes his way into the arena, the light of the luminescent moss guiding his path and signaling the end of his arduous journey. He scans his surroundings in the desolate cavern, and is greeted by a sight so gruesome it could put a thousand Claydols using Heat Wave to shame.

"...Connor?"

The gym leader's head snaps up at the mention of his name, his eyes wide with panic. He quickly detaches himself from the Mareep with which he was spooning and jumps to his feet, facing Cele with a sheepish grin on his face.

"Oh, hello Cele... Wasn't expecting you." Connor returns the Mareep to its poke ball and adjusts his clothing to appear a bit more presentable. "So, you wish to take on the Steel Gym? Well, then let's see what you've got!"

---

Been meaning to put my writing skills to some use again, what better way than to ref an exciting gym battle! (What's that? Smut? No, you're going to have to wait for Chapter 2.) Squad from Connor when he's not knee-deep in contest appeals and let's get this show on the road!

Bringing Steel Will Badge, as well as Aggronite.

Steel Will Badge
Global

The Steel Will Badge is presented to those fearless enough to conquer the Iron Throne. Signified in the decorative shield of it's design is the impenetrable defences surmounted by those who achieve ownership.
Badge Effect: Tempered Skin
This badge imbues the owners Pokemon with a resonating defensive ability. As such, all defensive boosts that they obtain will have their duration prolonged for a significant period of time, and will not begin to fade until two rounds after use.

Level 6

Arthur: Male Aggron
Aggron: Aggron can see in the dark. Due to their exceptional hardness, they will not take recoil damage from attacks they use and are highly resistant to physical moves, taking only 80% damage. In its Mega Forme Aggron's body hardens into a carapace of high strength metal, becoming a pure Steel type. It is fairly resistant to physical strikes, and only powerful physical attacks will deal noticeable damage to them.
Biography: Arthur, like the Arthur from common folklore, is a king amongst his piers. He could fight longer, strike harder, move faster. His command knew no equal. A true Pokemon amongst Pokemon. And a king must always have his kingly threads.
Signature Technique - Legendary King:
Using Considerable Steel energy, Arthur fortifies his defences. A shining golden aura engulfs his form, becoming a regal armour piece, and both of his defensive stats are boosted by 20% for the next 5 rounds, after which the aura dissipates. Arthur may only use this technique once per battle.
Hidden Power: Fairy
Attached: Aggronite

Kai: Genderless Metagross
Metagross: Large and bulky, Metagross now prefer to walk than to levitate. They can levitate but are slower than their pevious forms, with a lower flight ceiling. They are inorganic. Metagross are extremely intelligent and are more difficult to confuse or trick than normal.
Biography: Kai is obsessed with Beyblade. To the extent he has named himself after his favourite character from the show. Realising that his Gyro Ball attack was similar to the spinning tops he loves, he trained with it relentlessly, fashioning a brand new version.
Signature Move - Let it Rip!:
Locking his arms into his body, Kai spins incredibly fast in place and coats himself in energy, before ramming into the opponent with vicious force. This will deal Major damage for Major energy, but will also leave Kai with a 20% boost to his Special Defence. This can be ordered as either Steel or Psychic type.
Hidden Power: Grass

Marielle: Female Mawile
Mawile: Mawile's metal jaws are very strong and exceptionally difficult to force open. Attacks involved with them are 1.2x stronger then normal. Their techniques that are based on cuteness (such as Charm, Attract, Sweet Kiss, etc) are slightly more effective. Mawile can see in the dark.
Biography: Marielle is a hard case. She has worked against wrongdoing all her life, and is keenly aware that the world is not all sunshine and lollipops. This has lent her a certain capabilities when it comes to the detention of such wrongdoers, talents which have translated well into Pokemon battles.
Signature Technique - Fae Shield:
Using Considerable energy, Marielle creates a shining shield before herself. She will then launch this shield through the air, where it will absorb at least one attack before continuing on and hitting the opponent for Decent Fairy typed damage. The mystic energies contained within the shield will also boost both defensive stats by 10%. This attack may only be used three times per battle.
Hidden Power: Ground

Jormungand: Male Steelix
Steelix: Steelix are large Pokémon and are able to burrow through hard materials such as concrete with their Dig attack easily. They are also more resistant to extreme pressures and heat, though they take the usual damage from Fire moves. They can see in the dark. They have higher physical defence compared to other Steel-types. They are also familiar with the Rock type.
Biography: Jormungand, when all is said and done, is ultimately just a snake. Snakes have to shed their skins, iron skins or not. However, Jormungand has found a way to not only quicken this process, but prolong his survival in the mean time.
Signature Move - Shed Skin:
Using Considerable energy, Jormungand instantly sheds his skin, leaving the carapace behind. This will protect him from one incoming attack, and the energy used will leave his new carapace tempered, boosting his defensive stats by 10%. Standard boost stipulations apply. This can be used twice per battle.
Hidden Power: Grass

Eastwood: Male Ferrothorn
Ferrothorn: Like their pre-evolution, Ferrothorn are covered in large spines. Physical attacks dealt to them will deal 25% recoil damage to the user. Ferrothorn move with the aid of their three vines, able to use them much like arms or claws to move or attack. They can also be used to stick to ceilings or other horizontal surfaces. Their Gyro Ball is more effective than normal.
Biography: Eastwood hates his overwhelming weakness. In order to combat this, he has studied many substances, desperately searching for a means of both reducing and punishing the effects of these attacks.
Signature Move - Explosivo:
Using Significant Grass energy, Eastwood releases a dense cloud of spores around himself. These spores will insulate his body from the effects of Fire attacks, reducing his weakness to x2. In addition, any Fire attacks striking the cloud will cause an explosion in the direction of the user, causing them to suffer Moderate recoil. These spores will persist for 5 rounds, after which they will fade naturally. Explosivo can only be used once per battle.
Hidden Power: Water

Quentin: Male Lucario
Lucario: Lucario are very sensitive the aura of Pokémon. Using a move, Lucario can close their eyes and sense the location of a Pokémon. This can be sustained indefinitely as long as Lucario's eyes are closed.
Biography: Lucario are very sensitive the aura of Pokémon. Using a move, Lucario can close their eyes and sense the location of a Pokémon. This can be sustained indefinitely as long as Lucario's eyes are closed.
Signature Move - Spirit Drain:
From a distance, Quentin fires a compacted sphere of aura into the body of the opponent. This deals no damage, but will drain their defensive capability, lowering their Special Defence by 20%. This orb will then return to Quentin, bolstering his Special Defence by 20%. Standard boost stipulations apply. Spirit Drain requires Considerable Fighting energy and may only be used once per Pokémon.
Hidden Power: Fairy

Unfortunately I'm not really loaded up on big stompy things.

Ignus: Level 6 Male Camerupt
Hidden Power:
Grass
Mega Stone: Cameruptite
Sigless

Gragas: Level 6 Male Hariyama
Hidden Power:
Dark
Special Move: Reverse Whirlwind
Twice per battle, Gragas may be ordered to use Reverse Whirlwind, which as the name might imply, is a reversed version of Whirlwind. The target will, instead of being pushed away from Gragas, sucked into the wind and moved towards the source, Gragas's hands. Reverse Whirlwind costs a minor more energy than a regular Whirlwind, and deals damage based on distance travelled by the target, at ref's discretion.

Eredar: Level 6 Male Dusclops
Hidden Power:
Fairy
Sigless

Ardeur: Level 6 Male Blaziken
Hidden Power:
Grass
Sigless

Tresdin: Level 6 Female Quagsire
Hidden Power:
Fire
Sigless

Vulcan: Level 6 Male Typhlosion
Hidden Power:
Grass
Sigless

Ardeur will be first, per the Fire(/Fighting) Type lead norm.

Fight Fire with a humongous snake. Jormungand, to battle.

Waste no time in batting him with a swinging direct contact Earthquake, and then follow through on your size by ramming him frontal with a second, headbutting direct contact Earthquake.

High Jump Kick over that first Earthquake and strike him. Roll with the second Earthquake to gain some distance and lance off an MC Focus Blast.

Round 1: Hey Batter Batter

Connor and Cele square off in the subterranean arena, the former now appearing much more professional than before. How will Cele attempt to dismantle Connor's iron defenses? In a Pokemon choice I greatly approve of, Cele chooses to begin with a Blaziken named Ardeur. Damn French names... Whatever, still a solid choice. Connor ponders for a moment, then decides on Jormungand, the mythical beast of legend...or something. Whatever the reference, it's a big scary Steelix. How will this opening matchup turn out? Let's take a look at their Species Characteristics and find out!

Quote:
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 1/3 health.
Quote:
Steelix: Steelix are large Pokémon and are able to burrow through hard materials such as concrete with their Dig attack easily. They are also more resistant to extreme pressures and heat, though they take the usual damage from Fire moves. They can see in the dark. They have higher physical defence compared to other Steel-types. They are also familiar with the Rock type.
Here we go. Britain vs. Azerbaijan Canada France. Let's fight this war like it's 1754.

I was gonna go write some fancy descriptive intro but it looks like Jormungand ain't got time for that. He's lashing out at Ardeur right away like he's Barry Bonds without a need for the roids. His tail is coming at Ardeur with the force of an Earthquake. But Ardeur seems to have just as little regard for baseball as a sport as I do, instead choosing to channel his inner Bruce Lee with a flying kung fu kick. Which is really called High Jump Kick but that's so much less cool. Ardeur, quite the agile fighter, manages to clear the massive hurdle that Jormungand's tail created. He keeps going until he slams right into the Steelix with his outstretched foot. Jormungand lets out a roar from the impact, a bit miffed that his attack missed. Surely, this one won't though, because Jormungand is charging full speed ahead now. Ardeur is this time plowed by his foe's enormous size, the DC Earthquake dealing quite the damage and sending him flying backwards. Ardeur, however, looks to make use of the distance. He gets up quickly and fires off an MC Focus Blast, the quick burst of Fighting energy striking Jormungand for a clean hit, his hardened exterior offering no added protection against the special attack. Jormungand looks to be taking a beating so far, but we're only getting started here.

Jormungand has already fallen into his second third of health, opening up a lead for Ardeur. In terms of energy, they're neck and neck, both being fine for two.

Let's have a leaping retreat as you give them a Fire Pledge and then another MC Focus Blast.

Arc away from your current position as you smash a direct contact Earthquake through him at his point of landing to send him flying. Follow by ripping the terrain a new one with Bulldoze to stagger him out of that Focus Blast.

Round 2: Shaken, Not Stirred

Ardeur smirks a bit, knowing that he's claimed the upper hand thus far, but he is not too vain to fail to recognize when to make a tactical retreat. He leaps away from Jormungand rather heroically, releasing flames under his foe. The Fire Pledge erupts into a huge burning fire, but Jormungand is quick to act. Aided by the natural magnetic forces around him, he shifts his body as he winds up for another swing of his bat. He is still stricken by the majority of Ardeur's attack, but hey, a small dodge is better than nothing, right? Meanwhile, Jormungand's DC Earthquake doesn't miss this time. His home run swing knocks Ardeur right out of the park, or at least a significant ways back, close to the wall of the cavern. Not to mention, it does a lot of damage. Ardeur winces as he picks himself up, but he's ready to retaliate, beginning to charge up Fighting energy for his next attack. Jormungand has other ideas, being a bit tired of getting typespam thrown in his face. He begins to flail on the ground, throwing his weight around in an attempt to Bulldoze the arena. Due to the ores in the ground, however, the Bulldoze isn't quite as potent, but due to Steelix's size and Ground-typing, he's able to make it work almost as well as normal, dealing some nice damage to Ardeur and shaking up his aim. Ardeur fires off his MC Focus Blast, which strikes Jormungand for some some more damage but not quite as much as it could have. Man I'm so glad I picked up this match, you guys are beating the shit out of each other.

Jormungand once again took a beating, falling nearly into his final third of health. Ardeur still has a lead, but is well into his second third. Both are still roughly equal in energy and good for two.

Last edited by Apollo77; 07-26-2016 at 06:35 PM. Reason: Taking new Ground SC into account for Bulldoze's effectiveness.

Between Steelix's dumb size and Ground SC, can you explain why Blaziken wasn't at least tripped somewhat? Bulldoze should really tear up the terrain, and the arena jams Ground energy, not generic movement - I'm not sure Bulldoze uses much transmission of energy to achieve what it does.

Sorry if this comes off as if I'm trying to lead the referee, I staggered over the wording of this so much to try to get it to come off right.

I'm sorry if this doesn't come off clear enough in the Reffing but I had edited it to increase the effectiveness of Bulldoze. Blaziken's Focus Blast only did about half the damage it otherwise would have if Bulldoze didn't happen.

Oh okay. Cheers for clearing that up.

Swing your tail to specifically aim for his head with another direct contact Earthquake because it is basically all we have. Shed Skin an attack.

Use the distance created from the blow last round to respond with a Heat Wave. Proc Shed Skin with an Ember, then Focus Blast for three.

Round 3: Holy Shit Cele Used Heat Wave

Jormungand stares down his foe, knowing that he's going down fast - and that he needs to take Ardeur with him. He lashes out with his massive tail yet again, this time aiming directly for Ardeur's head. Ardeur, in the meantime, decides to make use of the space between him and Jormungand and begins to charge up his own attack. In a move I never in a million years saw coming, Ardeur releases a scorching Heat Wave. That's right. Cele. Ordered. Heat Wave. Ladies and gentlemen, we have seen it all. Just as Ardeur finishes his attack, however, he's hit with the force of an Earthquake by Jormungand's tail swing, knocking him right over. Jormungand, meanwhile, howls as the fiery burst of air washes over him. After a brief bit of agony he regains his composure, and notices that Ardeur has gotten up as well. He now watches the Blaziken carefully, ready to employ defensive maneuvers if necessary. But Ardeur is onto something here. Instead of going for the kill right away, he simply releases a few small Embers towards his opponent. Jormungand instinctively Sheds his Skin as per his signature move to defend against the incoming attack. The Ember does nothing but burn up the old carapace, while Jormungand is now looking rather shiny and sturdy. This seems to be just what Ardeur was looking for, though, as Cele burns his first three-mover and orders a Focus Blast. And this time, it's fully charged. Jormungand tries to get out of the way but is still stricken by most of the super-effective attack. The metal monstrosity lets out a pained roar, then collapses onto the ground, shaking the entire room a bit.

Jormungand is unable to battle! Connor, please send out your next Pokemon and orders.

Ardeur has dipped into his final third of health and is very tired from the high energy 3-mover. A break is mandatory.

Round 4: Spin to Win

Connor recalls his fallen Steelix and wastes no time thing about his next Pokemon. "Kai." He tosses out a Poke Ball and from the red light emerges a rather menacing-looking Metagross. It would appear that Connor enjoys big scary monsters almost as much as he enjoys sheep. But just what kind of big scary monster is Kai? Let's take a look at this Species Characteristic and find out!

Quote:
Metagross (Steel/Psychic): Large and bulky, Metagross now prefer to walk than to levitate. They can levitate but are slower than their pevious forms, with a lower flight ceiling. They are inorganic. Metagross are extremely intelligent and are more difficult to confuse or trick than normal.
BORKED

And that's all she wrote.

Ardeur is unable to battle! Cele, please send out your next Pokemon and orders.

Kai is in perfect health, and is still fresh, for all she did was let it rip. She is also currently enjoying a Special Defense boost.

Let's go with the objectively best Fire starter.

Vulcan.

Stay on the move while you spew out a Lava Plume and follow that up with... another Lava Plume!

Reflect, and then Rock Slide as you approach. Finish by slugging a direct contact Earthquake right into his gut.

Round 5: Yo Did She Just Walk Up Slowly And Earthquake?!?

Cele recalls his fallen Blaziken and briefly thinks about the choice of his next Pokemon before deciding on what he calls "objectively the best fire starter". While I wouldn't go that far, I must admit that Cele has some good taste. Vulcan the Typhlosion is the one to test his mettle next. While it is true that such a blazing hot Fire type has a statistical advantage, the fearsome Kai could make things difficult. Let's take a look at Typhlosion's Species Characteristic and see what it can do.

Quote:
Typhlosion (Fire): Typhlosion are the fastest of their evolutionary family, but the least agile. They can control whether their dorsal flames are ignited at any one time. When not ignited, they take only x1.5 damage from Water attack. However, they cannot use any fire attacks if their fire is not ignited. Igniting gives them their normal weakness to water and allows them to provide illumination and burn foes if there is prolonged contact. It also allows them to use fire attacks. 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. They will automatically de-ignite if they fall asleep. They have a x1.2 boost to lava based moves. As starter Pokémon, their Fire-type attacks are slightly more powerful when they drop below 1/3 health.
Making full use of Typhlosion's natural talents, Cele's first orders for Vulcan involve lava, and lots of it. The flames on his back burn brighter in the dim cavern as he lets loose a Lava Plume into the air. Kai, however, is prepared for such an assault. Deploying her native Psychic energy, she creates a Reflective shield in front of her to protect herself from her foe's offensive. Lava barrages the shield, but it holds strong. Not one to give up so easily, Vulcan is quick to keep things moving, firing off another Lava Plume in the hopes that the offensive pressure will act as a battering ram of sorts and break right through that shield. It turns out, he's right, as the shield cracks from the repeated hits, and a bit of lava spills through to hit Kai. It isn't enough to faze her though, as she now advances upon Vulcan, stomping the ground in front of her as he walks. She summons boulders from beneath the ground as she does so, sending them forth in the form of a Rock Slide at Vulcan. Vulcan recoils as he is pummeled by the rocky projectiles, not enjoying the tables of typespam being turned on him. But if that was bad, then he's really not going to enjoy what's coming next, for all this time, Kai had slowly been making her way ever closer to him. And now she's here. And boy, is she pissed. Connor gloats as he burns his first three mover and Kai begins to charge up some Ground energy into her talonfistclawthing. She winds up and delivers a powerful Earthquake-force strike right into Vulcan's gut, eliciting a howl of sheer agony from the Typhlosion. Man, not too fond of threes now, are you Cele...

Kai has opened up a large health lead, being close to perfect while Vulcan is already into his second third. As for energy, Vulcan is obviously fresher, but Kai can still make two as well, the three-mover not doing too much to exhaust him this early. Rock and Ground are at about half each.

Put yourself in a Rock Tomb. If he breaks the Tomb in any way, give him a greeting direct contact Earthquake right on the old noggin.

So, set up a QC Substitute and destroy that tomb with Bulldoze.

Round 6: Tear Down This Wall

Satisfied with her show of offensive prowess last round, Kai opts to switch things up this round and switches to the defensive. Stomping on the ground forcefully again, she summons boulders all around and bunkers herself in a Rock Tomb. A sturdy fortress indeed; Kai has no intention of breaking out. And apparently, Vulcan has no intention of breaking in just yet. Instead, the Typhlosion takes a cue from his opponent and puts up some defenses of his won, using Substitute to create a doppelganger in his place. Its purpose? To deceive. Kai has no way of telling that this is different from the real Vulcan. Nevertheless, she bides her time, safe inside her tomb. Now, however, Vulcan decides he has to break down this wall. What better way than with a Bulldozer? Well, he doesn't have an actual bulldozer, so this will have to do. He stomps on the ground like he's throwing a tantrum, sending destructive waves of Ground energy through the earth. However, as evidenced before, they aren't as potent due to the ore in the ground, and unlike before, Vulcan is not a Steelix. So while the attack shakes the tomb up enough to break it, it is dismantled rather nonviolently, and Kai doesn't take much damage from it at all. Her fortress having crumbled (albeit slowly), Kai emerges from it ready to rumble. She punches forward with another Earthquake, but is surprised to see Vulcan fade from the hit. She looks around curiously, and finds that the real Vulcan has appeared nearby. Wow this is the first round in a while in which you guys didn't just straight up try to murder each other. Great job!

Not much damage sustained by either party, Vulcan having only taken self-inflicted damage from Substitute. Both can make two, though Kai is a bit more fatigued than her foe. Vulcan is 1/3 out of Ground, while Kai is out of Ground completely and just barely has enough Rock for another Rock Tomb.

You will get a rest soon I promise.

Advance on him with Psychic Let it Rip, and then trap him in a Rock Tomb.
