Wow, reffing is pretty difficult. I'd like to think I got it all right, but let me know if you spot anything that seems off.
Glare – Drain Punch – Shadow Punch
Foresight – Double Team (3 copies) – Aqua Tail
The two trainers face each other, and, as soon as I volunteer my services as a referee, they each grab a Pokéball from their belt, and the battle begins. On one side appears Revenakh named Grave, who seems perfectly energized, despite the late hour. On the other side is a little Mudkip called Ting, who might not be as accustomed to battling at night, but seems just as eager to get this battle going.
The two Pokémon start off the battle by just standing (or floating) in place, staring at each other. I thought I was reffing a Pokémon battle, not a staring contest. Huh, wait a minute, it looks like Grave wasn’t giving just any old stare, but a vicious Glare
, and with Ting staring right back at it, the move worked to perfection. Ting appears so scared that it can barely move, suffering 25% Paralysis.
Ting tries to compose itself and use a move of its own, but I guess it just can’t shake off the terror of that Glare, because it is Fully Paralyzed
With Ting barely able to move, Grave sees a great opening, and sucks away some of Ting’s life with a Drain Punch.
After being knocked around by that punch, it seems Ting has gotten his body back under control, and he begins to move very fast, despite the paralysis, and uses Double Team
. It seems he pulled it off quite well, as there now appear to be 4 Mudkip instead of just 1. The pack of Mudkip then dive into the local watering hole, knowing that they have to get some momentum going.
Yet despite being outnumbered, Grave seems quite happy. And that’s because those clones aren’t fooling him, which he proves by floating over to the water and slamming the real one with a ghostly Shadow Punch,
causing all the clones to vanish into thin air. By this point Ting seems rather frustrated, as its first to actions have been a complete waste, so he finally decides it’s time to start fighting back. He leaps out of the water and whacks Grave across the face with an Aqua Tail
, using some water he pulled up with him to boost its power.
Ting drops back down into the water, as its paralysis takes the first steps toward wearing off, and Grave hovers over by the shore.
