Todays’ matchup is brought about with the purpose to train and hone the skills of what I think is the only active Smeargle of the Fizztopia world. On the red corner we have the trainer Missingno. Master, hunter of shiny Pokemon. On the green corner we have someone who is no pest to our community, the one and only Pest! The backdrop for the match will be Fizztopia Fairgrounds, which is filled of vibrant people shouting from the excitement of the match as the clay has been molded to perfection in preparation for today’s battle. Both trainers toss their pokeballs high into the air and reveal their choices.

Bio:
Chromium is highly skilled at painting, and considers herself an artist. She also has a high opinion of herself, and comes off as rude and haughty at times. Most times, in order to motivate her to help out with something, she'll need to be told how she can somehow incorporate her painting skills- indeed, she openly admits that that's the kind of information you open with when you want her help. One of her few friends on the team is Hermione, who recognizes and respects the Smeargle's artistic talent and constant desire to create bigger and better masterpieces. She does have some respect for Keith, grudgingly admitting that he seems to be an alright Trainer, having already managed to teach her several useful moves.

Pokémon battles. Widely considered to be the best way for Trainers and their Pokémon to connect, as well as the best way for two Trainers to greet each other. Generally, it was something as simple as eye contact what sparked these friendly competitions between Trainers, but oftentimes battles were arranged ahead of time as well. This could be for any number of reasons- a Trainer wishing to see how their Pokémon performed in an actual battle. Two Trainers wishing for their Pokémon to settle a long-standing rivalry. One Trainer demonstrating for another just how much a Pokémon they traded to the first Trainer had grown. And in the case of Smeargle Trainers, an opportunity for their Smeargle to copy a specific move with their unique attack, Sketch. These last two reasons were both motivating the battle what would unfold today.

Keith smiled as he entered the battlefield. Fizzytopia's New Fairground- always bustling, always full of excited spectators who were always eager to see thrilling Pokémon battles. While not exactly his favorite arena for battles (that honor went to the arena Keith discovered himself- Venom Island's Plague Swamp), it most certainly secured a close second. Meowth was on Keith's shoulder, as per usual, but the Pokémon Keith was going to use in battle today was still in her Poké Ball, just waiting to be sent out. She knew about this battle, and was very much looking forward to this opportunity, for more reasons than one.

Keith's opponent was to be a Trainer known as Tempest, a Pokémon Trainer Keith had met once before, and oddly enough, someone his Toxicroak seemed to have met before even that. There were two reasons this battle was to unfold today, with these two specific Trainers, with the Pokémon Keith would be using today. First, however, he took out his Pokédex and aimed it at the somewhat serpentine Pokémon Pest had sent out.

"Servine, the Grass Snake Pokémon, and the evolved form of Snivy," said Keith's Pokédex. "Servine moves along the ground as though it were sliding, befuddling enemies with its swift movements before striking with Vine Whip."

Vine Whip... And therein lay one of the reasons for this battle. Vine Whip was a very versatile move indeed. So much so that it was one of a small handful of moves both Keith and his chosen Pokémon for this battle wanted for themselves. That being the case, Keith pocketed the Pokédex, and without further ado, threw the Poké Ball. "Let's go, Chromium!" he exclaimed.

The ball split open, and in a flash of light, a Smeargle materialized before them all. A Smeargle Pest would no doubt be quite familiar with. The other reason for this battle- Chromium used to be Pest's Smeargle, back when the default color of her tail paint was still green- constant use of Sludge Wave had dyed the tip of her tail a dark purple instead. Other than that, though, Chromium didn't look especially different. Maybe a little stronger than she used to be, but not unrecognizable by any means. Moreover, once Chromium was done smirking her satisfaction at having an audience to witness her battle, she couldn't help but give a very faint smile at the sight of her previous Trainer.

And with that, it was time for the battle to begin! "Let's do it, Chromium," said Keith. "That Servine's gonna use Vine Whip, so when it does, use Sketch to copy it! Then let it taste some Brain Freeze, and follow up with Gummi Bomb!"

Bio: As with all Servine, Nemestrinus thinks that he is better than everyone else. This view initially alienated him from everyone else, until Pest discovered the information that all Servine think of themselves as the best. In fact, it would have been troubling if he didn't think so, as the Snivy line values ambition, image, and self-preservation above all else. Realizing that he meant no harm by it, the team was quick to apologize for its hasty conclusion, and soon found that he was actually a rather personable fellow. He may be a hopeless narcissist, but he is also willing to listen to others' opinions and assist them when necessary.
Because of his unusual mindset, Pest's Pokémon are usually able to cut Nemestrinus more slack than they would usually allow. For his part, he can't understand how they can possibly place others on pedestals when they are their clearly their own crowning achievement. He knows that there are powerful Pokémon in the world that could destroy him with the swipe of a paw, but as far as he's concerned, he'll be just as powerful as them one day, which makes him that powerful now due to transitive awesomeness. Attempts to point out the flaws in this logic are met with a small smile and a pat on the head.

Pest jogged up to the designated meeting spot, doing her best to shake off the trepidation of the battle to come. She'd heard word that Keith Masters was looking for someone to help him teach one of his Pokemon Vine Whip - kind of an odd choice, but who was she to judge? - and she'd volunteered to lend a hand in that department. Only afterward did she learn that the Pokemon in question was a Smeargle who Pest was more than a little familiar with: Vica Pota.

No, she had to remind herself. She's named Chromium now. Pest had once been the haughty Smeargle's trainer, but gradually her enthusiasm for training a Smeargle had waned, and in the interest of helping the artist reach her full potential, she found a new home for her in Keith's capable hands. That was years ago, but the unease that stirred in her gut was as unpleasant as it'd been on the day of the fateful trade. It was for the best, she'd reasoned, but now guilt resurfaced in full force. What if she was just too lazy to raise a Smeargle or come up with an ideal, albeit limited moveset? Or was she just too selfish to set aside her doubts and give Chromium the attention she needed? As much as she tried to convince herself otherwise, she couldn't help but squirm a little as they approached their destination, where Keith and Chromium awaited.

Pest's battler for the day cared for none of this. Slithering along at her side was Nemestrinus, her trusty Servine, who was more than a little haughty himself. He peered over his perpetually upturned nose at the flocks of fairgoers, regarding them with a vague expression of amused interest. Pest had no doubt in his capabilities, but she knew that this was not going to be a cakewalk by any means - Chromium more than likely had Sketched at least a couple of moves that would give grass-types a hard time. Heck, she'd even taught her Firestream before trading her away!

Before long they had taken up their spots in the arena, ready to get this battle rolling. Avoiding Chromium's gaze, Pest said, "Okay, Nemestrinus, let's start things off with Wring Out and get ahead early on! Then plant a seed on her and leech on her health." She blinked, suddenly remembering why they had come here in the first place. "And finish up with a Vine Whip," she added, wishing she could sound more confident than she felt. Nemestrinus nodded, preparing himself to get this underway ...


Let’s see what the pokedex has to say about Chromium the Smeargle and Nemestrinus the Servine.
Quote:
Smeargle marks the boundaries of its territory using a body fluid that leaks out from the tip of its tail. Over 5,000 different marks left by this Pokémon have been found.

It moves along the ground as if sliding. Its swift movements befuddle its foes, and it then attacks with a vine whip.
vs.

The battle starts off rather predictably for Smeargle as he waits around for his opponent to attack in order to activate his signature move, Sketch. The matchup does not go immediately as expected for Smeargle as the snake has other plans before proceeding with the move that Smeargle very much covets to have. Nemestrinus dexterously approaches the opponent to use Wring Out. Wrapping his whole body around Chromium, Servine squeezes the life force out of the artist. Nemestrinus herself realizes that because the opponent is at her full potential, he has to put in his maximum effort, which strains his own energy reserves. Keith cautions his ally to remain focus on the move that he is set out to learn. With a slight whimper, Chromium fazes out the harm she has just endured and waits to see the coveted vine whip that has yet to come.

The snake grins with joy as he is not about to show the opponent the move that she is after. Instead, Nemestrinus prolongs the suffering by planting vines around the head of Chromium. Moving off the opponent, the starter prepares her next strike from some distance. A volley of Leech Seed take a hold of the artist in suffering. If she is unable to deal with these vines soon enough, Chromium will be in some deep trouble as the match progresses on. The artist can only bide her time, waiting to see if her opponent will use the attack that she is looking for. The tables have not turned just yet, which means that Smeargle has plenty of time to catch up.

Servine snickers, giving into the wishes of Chromium. He engages the painter by extending two vines hidden within his neck which twirl with an intense flair. Forming a whip, the grass starter lashes out against the artist, hurting it for some damage as the pup feels the sting across her chest. Chromium sees her opening and copies the technique, learning vine whip in a jiff. With every stroke of her tail, Chromium records the movements of her opponent to memorize the new technique. You can see Chromium whip his own version of vines across the air with a clear snobby grin on her face as she finally accomplished what she was set out to do. She moves the vines soo elegantly, with much poise that it only leaves Nemestrinus anxious at the display of Sketch. The two pokemon are now ready for the real fight to happen as they each refocus with a reaffirming grin at each other knowing that for the remainder of the match it will not be as easy going. After all, we are witnessing an advanced match, no? Chromium’s celebration is cut short as she is reminded of her limited movement, putting one hand on the floor to regain her footing as the time for the round runs out. Maybe she will get used to the sap as the match progresses. The health sapped away from her is transferred to Servine, leaving the snake enjoying a gluttonous snack as she stares about seven feet away of Chromium.

What will the trainers do next?

Chromium could not use her last two attacks because she first had to fulfill her sketch. By the time she would have had the chance to use her other two attacks, time ran out for the round.

RNG determines that Pest is first to go.

Pest winced a little, unsure how to feel about their early lead. She could see that Nemestrinus was clearly liking the momentum so far, but the only reason they had that momentum was because she'd forgotten the whole reason for this battle and gone out guns a-blazing. Having Nemestrinus unload all that on Chromium at once would be like a kick to the face, she thought, for a Smeargle - and her former Smeargle, at that! - to be hit so hard so quickly when all she wanted was to learn a new move. What was she thinking?

There wasn't really time to berate herself, though. Chromium had gotten the move she'd coveted, and Pest doubted the crafty Smeargle was going to hold back now that she wasn't watching out for a Vine Whip. "Okay, Nemestrinus," she said. "Let's see what we can do now. Start off with a Gastro Acid to hopefully take the edge off some of her moves. Then Coil up, and throw in a Seed Bomb after that."

Keith grimaced slightly- he had made the rather large mistake of having Chromium hold off on any attacks until Vine Whip was Sketched. He had assumed that Pest would tell Nemestrinus to start off with Vine Whip, when in fact that's how they ended the round. And taking a Wring Out at full health? That hurt! But now, Keith knew, now that Chromium knew Vine Whip, the battle was his to steer back in a desirable direction. He and Chromium could, and would, overcome this rocky start and show Pest just how much the Smeargle had grown since leaving her team.

Keith listened as Pest issued the orders. Gastro Acid... of course, Pest would remember that Chromium's Ability was Technician. Taking that away wouldn't bode well for Chromium, even if a good chunk of her moves were too powerful to put the Ability to use. Fortunately, Keith had knowledge of Chromium that Pest did not, and said knowledge would help them here and now. "Quick, Chromium, Teleport behind Nemestrinus!" he ordered. "Hit it from there with a Brain Freeze, then follow up with Sludge Wave!"

Tempest feels a mixture of relief and disappointment that as the trainer realizes that maybe the match should have started with a clean sketch of the move. Neither trainer is dwelling on this fact for too long, and proceed to instruct each pokemon to pummel each other to the ground. Servine conjures a magical gushing of acid made entirely out of energy that arcs across the air before hitting its target. Just in a nick of time, Chromium concentrates his mind to react in a way where his whole body teleports out of sight. The beagle avoids being covered by the gastric byproducts whilst standing right behind her opponent.

Feeling a presence behind himself, Nemestrinus Coils into his own body as he turns around to face Chromium. The attack is successful at raising his accuracy, attack, and defense by one stage. Unfortunately for him though, Chromium is much more invested in attacking from the special side as she uses a custom move. Emitting a linear vortex of ice energy, the crystal particles within the blast seep into the skin of Nemestrinus, which might cause harm in the long run. With a loud screech emitted from Servine, it would appear that the snake is extra affected by the blast, and the effects might be felt sooner than anticipated as he slithers back by a few feet to register the effects.

Chromium is showing a sign of relief as she has breathing space from her opponent. The vines placed on her earlier are of no help however, still restricting her physical movement somewhat. Nemestrinus regains focus on his opponent, massing up an orb of grass energy with explosive properties. The orb soon turns solid, gathering enough physical mass to do some serious harm as it moves from the tail of Servine, and finally being emitted by his hand, which is only further boosted by the previous coil technique allowing for more momentum to pick up in a jiff. The grass starter has planted yet another seed, this one with destructive force akin to bomb. Chromium is helpless at moving out of the way, being blasted by the shot immediately while taking a tumble on the terrain as consequence. The beagle gets up from a distance and realizes that the vines are weakening their grip upon her. This elicits a slight smirk on her face, knowing that the agony of the seed might end soon enough.

Focusing on the matter at hand, Chromium uses a technique all too familiar to herself, in fact, it is the attack that turned her brush into the beautiful shade of violet that it currently has. Moving her tail side to side, she creates a Wave massive enough to drown anything in its way. The liquid that is being tossed at Servine has a viscous consistency. Keith is extra confident that the attack will play heavily against the grass typed Pokemon, as they are naturally weak to poison moves. Nemestrinus is whammed across his whole body, taking a tumble across the field as the giant Sludge crashes on top of him with little space to recover. Chromium stands proudly at her achievement about twelve feet away. She suddenly feels a drag from leech seed sapping health away from her, but it is evident that it is not as strong as the first time around. Nemestrinus feels the refreshing restoration enter his body as a welcomed treat.

Keith grinned- things were already starting to turn around for him. Nemestrinus's Coil might prove problematic later on, but for now, Keith was willing to focus on the positives, as he so often would do. Said positives being, these orders went off more smoothly than he could've imagined. The Seed Bomb proved to shake things up somewhat, but ultimately, things went just as Keith planned- Teleport helped Chromium evade the Gastro Acid, and she was able to land the Brain Freeze and Sludge Wave with no trouble whatsoever. The two were looking more evenly matched already. The Servine seemed a bit healthier, true, and the Leech Seed still had the Smeargle in its clutches, but said clutches were weakening considerably, and the gap between their health levels was not an especially large one.

"Alright, Chromium," said Keith. "You're doing great out there, now let's keep this going! Hold Nemestrinus still with your Voodoo Bugaloo attack, then use your Firestream, and follow up with Dragon Rage!

Biting her lip, Pest considered their next move. Chromium was handling herself nicely, which made her feel a bit better about the whole thing. "Let's see," she said, half to herself. "Nemestrinus will be kind of in a tight spot this round - we'll need to do what we can with that." Louder, she said, "All right. I think you can get another Seed Bomb on her before all the voodoo shenanigans. Then, when you can't move, show her what you think with a fierce Glare. Lastly, just take a breather and see if you can recover a bit of energy."

Chromium is heavily reliant on moves learned via special means. Moves that quite honestly the referee is seeing for the first time in action. She creates this illusion with the stroke of her brush, projecting an image of a voodoo doll. The attack is relatively long to conjure before appearing to take any lasting effect on the opponent. Nemestrinus suspects such weakness of the technique and exploits it to his advantage. Channeling an energy familiar to his own typing, Nemestrinus has a slight advantage in the formation of Seed Bomb. The energy barrage is sent right before the doll takes its full toll on the snake. Chromium is blasted a few feet away, with the leech seed falling off completely at this point. The artist is relieved at knowing she won’t be tangled up any longer. A certain chime is heard across the field. The word Bugaloo is heard being emitted by the doll as a red pin inserts into the projection.

The Servine is paralyzed on the spot, unable to escape the grasp of the doll. Oddly enough, he can still conjure techniques that involve his eyes. Chromium snickers in joy as this gives her enough time for her next technique. Recalling a rachet evening of drinking, she starts to hiccup uncontrollably. Well, there is a certain level of control, and that is enough for a Firestream of bubbles to radiate from her mouth in the direction of the snake. Meanwhile, the neurological pressure being endured by the grass starter proves to be a giant strain on his body. To make matters worse, Murphy’s Law is taking hold of the snake; a sudden brain freeze applies pressure on his optic nerve, leaving him unable to perform his devastating glare. Every scalding hot bubble pops upon contact, leaving the poor snake squealing in agony from the vast amount of harm being inflicted upon him as he tumbles across the clay of the arena. You can hear the crowd in the background going wild, cheering on the snake to shake off the effects of the doll. You can say that the chants are actually helping the snake find a sense of confidence as her limbs loosen up for the rest of the round.

Energy levels overall are not looking as fresh as they were at the beginning of the match. Chromium uses this small window to inflict harm on the resting opponent who is remain alert, despite some levels of fatigue. The normal typed pokemon finds within herself the ability to summon a fire ball full of raging draconian energy. The trainer can picture in his mind the trainer doing a stance. He can picture Keith set up his hands in a similar fashion as some iconic cartoon character would release a ki blast. Chanting from the sidelines, imagination runs wild as even a shout "Draaagoooonn Rageeee" is imagined by the referee. The blast of dragon connects with Servine, making her take another roll across the clay. His face looks uncomfortable as the chilling brain freeze chips away a small amount of health. Both combatants look fairly even at this point, standing about eight feet away from each other.

What will happen next?

The match was taking its toll on both combatants. Alongside her concern for Nemestrinus's condition, Pest found herself taking a little pride in Chromium's skill - the Smeargle had certainly come a long way since they'd last seen each other. Regardless of how Chromium felt about being traded away, she was happily flourishing with Keith's help, and that was really all that mattered. She breathed in, willing herself to let it be. There was still a battle to finish.

She looked over at Nemestrinus. The grass snake's cocky facade was slipping, his mouth set in a firm line as he regarded Chromium with irritation. Not uncertainty, of course. Servine were above that, or so he'd claim. "We just need to push past it," Pest assured him. "I think we can forget subtlety at this point. Slam her into the ground with a Leaf Blade, that should be a good choice right now. And a second Leaf Blade should work as well, and finally ... another Leaf Blade." Not the most creative of orders, but when in Rome and all that. "We might not have a lot of options right now, but you've still done great!"

Keith stood on his end of the battlefield, a positively Gengaresque grin on his face. And why shouldn't there be such a grin on his face? The battle was going more and more in his favor. The Leech Seed? Gone! The Seed Bomb? Prevented by Voodoo Bugaloo! The Glare that Voodoo Bugaloo wouldn't prevent? Stopped cold (bad pun fully intended) by the previous Brain Freeze. Chromium and Nemestrinus were about even in terms of their health and energy at the moment, so the battle was still lacking a clear-cut winner. But that didn't bother Keith- the advantage was right there, just waiting for him to grab hold, and he would not hesitate, and nor, he was sure, would Chromium. The Smeargle had been giving this battle everything she had thus far, showing Pest all that she'd learned since she was a part of Pest's team, showing her how much she'd grown.

The Servine had his orders- a repeated volley of Leaf Blade attacks. But Keith had other plans. Plans which, in a twist that would prove most ironic for Nemestrinus, involved the very technique the Servine had only just helped Chromium to learn. "Chromium, use Vine Whip to grab Nemestrinus!" he ordered. "Use it to keep him at bay and slam him into the ground, then unleash another Sludge Wave before he can get up! If at any point he gets close, have a Mega Punch ready and waiting for him- otherwise, follow up the Sludge Wave with Firestream!"

Nemestrinus is losing her poker face as signs of desperation are starting to show. Full on offense is the only response given by snake as his tail glows brightly in a sharp lime green coloration. Chromium is panting as she tries to intercept the attack, but she is not quick enough at conjuring her immature grass technique vs a grass type who has already mastered her moves. The edges of Servine's leaf tail sharpen up like a blade before going swinging at maximum power against Chromium. The piercing strike slashes across the chest of the artist, leaving her screaming in agony as the attack has a ton of unexpected force behind it. She skids across the field with her head held down. A few panting breaths are taken in by Chromium. Her composure changes in an instant as she looks up and extends both arm. From each shoulder blade a magical vine that takes on physical properties are extended out of thin air to form two fully realized whips. There is some resistance from the grass starter, but the Technician manages to take a strong grip between the neck and the tail. The artist raises the opponent and slams her into the terrain for a powerful pin while also accruing some damage.

The vines are steadily holding down Nemestrinus who is struggling to get out of his opponent’s grip. His tail glows in a familiar lime color, but with the pin not letting him move too much, the grass starter is left unable to use the move. Chromium smirks from side to side as her plan is working out flawlessly. Opening up her mouth, she emits a large glob of sludge that takes the form of a giant wave. Unfortunately for her, she has to let go of the vines before utterly crushing the opponent in the giant display of poison energy. Nemestrinus has a look of deer with headlights before gargling a large chunk of the attack. Servine tumbles several feet through the terrain, leaving her almost beaten by the opponent. He pouts a bit, but remains tough for his trainer.

This is where conditionals have their worst rep, Chromium has to wait and see what Servine will do before attacking. She mustn’t let down her trainer in the process, biding time as she observes Nemestrinus approaching from a distance. The snake has enough time to charge up his limb with relative ease, which will give him no issue at the time of release. Chromium’s heart starts to beat faster, realizing that she is at the brink of cardiac arrest as her energy levels almost reach their end. Maybe that is an exaggeration, the whole cardiac arrest thing, but she will certainly pass through a syncope moment if her reserves deplete, right? You were forewarned.

Both combatants are reaching an impending clash of Leaf Blade vs Mega Punch. You can hear them both screaming off the top of their lungs, lunging at one another. The starter twists his body at the last second landing a sharp cut right across the chest of Chromium whilst the artist lands a Punch with her right fist across the face of Nemestrinus. The both flinch at their respective attacks as they hold their positions. If you are a meticulous observer, you can see Nemestrinus’s eye open up wide as he bulges out a vein from his neck, signifying his superior defensive bulk. Chromium collapses out of exhaustion, knowing that she did everything she could in her power to succeed. Pest begins to dance in joy as the crowd goes wild at the last twist of events. One stat boost changed it all folks.

Chromium is unable to battle! Pest is the W

WAIT, what?! Nemestrinus starts to clamp on to his head. Realizing that there are still some lingering effects of Brain Freezeeee, he screeches in agonizing pain. Noooo waayy. This cannot have happened at an even more shocking moment. The snake grasps on to his own head, shaking in agony before collapsing to a possible atrophy of the brain. Probably not atrophy, but enough to trigger a moment of syncope.

The battle became tense as it reached its climax, but in the end, Keith's heart sank as his Smeargle collapsed to the ground. The entire battle's sole purpose was to teach Chromium Vine Whip, which had most obviously succeeded, Keith kept reminding himself, but even so, to see that they lost, it was still pretty disappointing...

...except it wasn't a straightforward loss. Just before the Servine was to be declared the winner, he clutched his head once more- some lingering effects of Brain Freeze had taken their toll, and the Servine collapsed as well! Keith's jaw dropped as the match was declared a draw.

Keith walked onto the battlefield, and helped his exhausted Smeargle stand up. "Chromium, you OK?" Keith asked.

"Smeeeear... Smeargle," Chromium replied, managing a small nod.

Keith smiled. "Yeah, you are," he nodded back. "You were awesome out there." He helped the Smeargle to stand back up, and they walked over to Pest. "Good battle," Keith smiled, offering a handshake. "And thanks for helping us with Sketching Vine Whip. I'd like if we can have another battle sometime, maybe once Chromium's Sketched all the moves she wants to learn. And in the meantime, if you ever want to come see her, you're more than welcome to drop in on my Secret Base- it's above the Pokémon Center over on the old Hidden Mansion's grounds. I'm sure Chromium would like that, too."

"Smear," nodded Chromium,a faint smile noticeable on the artist's face.


OOC: Thanks for the good battle, Pest. And for helping Chromium learn Vine Whip, of course. And Apos, thanks for reffing.

Pest helped Nemestrinus to his feet. The Servine was pretty woozy, shivering a little at the chill that still flared up in his skull every now and then, but he was lucid enough to muster up a sufficiently indignant expression. "You were great, Nemestrinus," she assured him. "Even if you didn't win, you more than held your own for this fight - I really couldn't be prouder for you." She cracked a smile when he preened a bit from the praise.

She then went up to Keith and shook his hand, saying, "You're welcome! I was happy to help, and that was a pretty wild battle." She hesitated, then looked down at Chromium, who smiled just a little in return. "And it's been great to see you too," she added to the tired but proud Smeargle. "You've been learning so much with Keith ... when you've learned all you can, I'd love to see your artistry in motion during another battle. Until then, I think I just might drop by and visit sometime."


What a battle! Good game, MM, and thanks to Aposteriori for the great reffing!
