Goooooooood morning, ladies and gentlemen! It's a lovely day here at
ASB arena, and even though it's early, the seats are packed! Today's battle pits Final Fantasy fan Arcanite, sending out his Heracross named Kain, against J...jas...the guy with the hard-to-pronounce name with a Plusle named Zip.
Thanks to his nature, Kain clinches the first move of the battle, bringing on the pain with a nice hard Earthquake
! That's gotta hurt! And Zip finds himself hurting even more, as he rummages through a nearby garbage can to build a light Substitute
Despite Zip's attempt to set-up against Kain, the insectoid dragoon sets up himself by performing a Swords Dance
...which Zip Encore
s. This could be bad for our Heracross friend...
As Kain's hubris causes him to perform another Swords Dance
, Zip's body lights up with electrical energy, and the Plusle Discharges
it all over his nemesis! It wasn't enough to paralyze him, but it did do a decent amount of damage.
Arcanite holds the lead in terms of HP, but this could still go either way. What will happen next? Find out after these messages!
