I might change my mind later (*shrug*), but for now: to start things off, Dynamaxing Mimikyu, whose Disguise is intact! Max Phantasm (130 BP) based on Shadow Ball (80 BP)!

Hmm. Perhaps we should have made sure we had Dark coverage after all. Wurmple commented, observing the massive bird that swooped low over the battlefield to become their next opponent.

"Arceus-damned luck, that's all. Fury Cutter might be neutral, but that doesn't mean we can't do anything." responded Cy as they stepped up to form a line, each Trainer contemplating the battle ahead. He sent the Pokeball spinning forth, and their rented Farfetch'd landed, twirling its leek and staring down the Xatu. Cy glanced at his Pokedex to check Farfetch'd's available moves. "Looks like our best bet is to start setting up for now," he said. " Farfetch'd, start with a Swords Dance(0BP) to prepare for the fight"

Elijah panted, struggling to catch up to the Pawniard (and the rest of his group) that were standing face-to-face with a giant... uh...


Xatu are revered in many cultures as Pokémon that can see both the past
and the future. In the wild, they are often seen staring at the sun
in meditation, staying in one spot over the course of the day.
Well that's just great, he thought as he put his Pokédex back in his pocket. The last thing he needed right now was a giant bird knowing exactly what he was going to do, especially when that bird seemed to give everyone the evil eye. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on who you asked), nobody could predict the Pawniard moving forward with a deliberate Assurance attack, attempting to strike the Xatu with as aggressively as possible.

This didn't faze Elijah. He was already more than aware of the fact that this Pawniard that he was supposed to command just wouldn't listen to him for some reason. What did throw him, however, was when that "dynamax band" that one of the new team members was wearing started glowing... and then that pale imitation of a Pikachu that they were battling with was suddenly also huge, even if the Xatu was still over four times its size.

"...Excuse me?!" Elijah uttered. "That's what that thing does?!" He'd noticed his own band glowing on his wrist during the last battle, but he was too busy trying to corral the Pawniard to try to figure out why it was illuminated. At least he'd be able to seize the opportunity next time it happened.

A wave of embarrassment suddenly washed over Elijah. He was trying to look like he knew what he was doing, but between the disobedient Pawniard and the way that he just audibly admitted that he had no clue how something that all of these trainers seemed like they knew worked, he really wasn't doing any favors for himself. Might as well sweep what I can under the rug, he thought.

"Phew, that Gigafied Notachu looks good!" He called to the other trainer with the most blatantly forced smile and thumbs-up he could possibly give. At least he was trying.


using Assurance (60BP), possibly doubled to 120BP because i'm assuming that at least one of these attacks did some damage

i'm cool, i swear

Whoa, a bird Pokemon! That means good news for our Stonjourners! Maybe we'll get more details out of the Pokedex?

Xatu, the Mystic Pokemon, and the evolved form of Natu. Xatu can see into the past and the future at the same time, the left eye viewing the past and the right eye viewing the future. However, it must stay perched in one place in order to do so. Usually, this Pokemon will seemingly stare into the sun in a form of meditation while doing this, furthering the myth that it is a mystical being from another world. Research has confirmed that while Xatu can see the future, it refuses to try to change it, knowing that the attempt would fulfill it in some way anyway.

I don't know about you, Stonjourner, but I find an evil version of Xatu looking into our past and future kinda creepy...let's do something about that! Use Gravity (0 BP) and see if we can keep it on the ground!
