And they start!
Fluffee the Whimsicott opens hostilities with a Tailwind, boosting her team, but it's all in vain as Tempest the Dragonite avoids both the attacks directed at her with a burst of Agility!
Poseidon the Kingdra then adds injury to insult, and Freezes her solid with a well directed Ice Beam, while Slasher the Fraxure hits Ian the Darmanitan with a watery tail slap.
Pushed by the Tailwind, Ian and Mitsuhide go on the offensive, hitting the Dragonite with a Flare Blitz and a Frost Breath. Tempest takes the fiery assault well, with the help of her Multiscale, but she has no such luck with Lapras's freezing barrage.
Poseidon the Kingdra then honors his namesake, summoning forth a mighty rainstorm, ensuring that Tempest's Class 5 Hurricane finds its mark, the poor and frozen Fluffee, who is then knocked out by Slasher's Xtreme Scissor.
