Other: Badly Poisoned
Boggle seems to have recovered from the last round! He's disappeared into shadow...and shows up behind Shadowstrike and pushing it to the ground! That's a textbook Faint Attack!
Shadowstrike seems to realize it needs to be faster to stand a chance, so it's used Rock Polish
to redice its body's drag and increase its Speed two stages!
Suddenly much faster, the Golett charges Boggle and slams it with a Shadow Punch!
The blow is so hard, Boggle is sent flying! He manages to collect himself, though, and attempts to Astonish
Shadowstrike into not attacking next turn! But it's too feeble to cause a flinch, and the Golett prepared itself for this one anyway!
Golett finishes the round with a devastating Earthquake!
What a hit--can Boggle stand up? Yes! He's just able to come back to his senses and hit with another Faint Attack
, although one more good Earthquake like that could seal the deal!
Both Pokemon are showing signs of strain, one health-wise, the other stamina-wise. Who can dig deeper and finish the fight? We'll find out after this short commercial break!

Flamestrike, you're up. Like the third-person roleplaying, by the way.
