The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny
THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN
of Ultimate Destiny
"This is the Ultimate Showdown, Of Ultimate Destiny
Good Guys, Bad Guys, and Explosions (as far as the eye can see)
And only one will survive, i wonder who it will be...
This is the Ultimate Showdown....
Of Ultimate Destiny."
"35 Challengers. They come from far and wide, some traveling great distances to get to where we are today. With them, a single pokemon. I have asked them all to bring their most trusted companion, a pokemon that has proved worthy of their love and loyalty. Most have done so. And now, here they are. 35 of ASB's Finest, competing to see who is truly the best! There are many tricks and challenges in store.... who will adapt? who will crumble? We will soon find out! Now, to the Arena..."
Using the latest technology and his own creative Genius, Glacier Knight decided to create the mother of all arenas: 19 of them all rolled up into one grand master arena. However, that wasnt enough. To make a fresh continent without any history would be too simple. So, Glacier travelled back in time, to around the early 1200's, and forged his masterpiece. then, he let it grow on its own. 812 years later, Massimo is how you see it now. Oddly, there are no pokemon or life forms to be found. Are they hiding? what happened to them? Will you ever find out...? But, forget about that for a while. Enjoy the fresh and descriptive landscapes. and be careful! this is where the worst will fall, and the best will rise!
This is the layout of Massimo
There are 19 Main Arenas, and then 42 paths that connect each other.
If looking at the visual, you see there is one arena in the center, then an inner ring of 6 arenas, followed by the outer ring of the last 12 arenas.
Note: I have RNGed where you will start off. I have put your name by the arena you will begin.
1= Lake on the Hillside: The Wanderer/Objection/Athenodoros/Frosty
2= Rolling Hills
3= Volcano: Ullar Warlord/Yarnus of Bethany
4= Snowy Plains: Smashlloyd20/WaterWarrior
5= Pine Forest: Pwnemon/Mrcranger97
6= Tall Grass: Its A Random/Dogfish44/Elevator Music/Zarator/Engineer Pikachu/Ragnarokalex
7= Misty Beach: Aopsuser/Madotsuki
8= Frosty Mountains: Simonsays/Imanalt/Darkslay
9= Cave: Rickheg
10= No Man's Land: TheWolfe
11= Ocean-side Cliff: Matezoide/Eternal Drifter
12= South Sea
13= Obsidian Badlands: LockDown
14= Flavor Special
15= Jungle: TheRoyalGuard
16= Murky Swamp: TIO/Texas Cloverleaf
17= Deathly Hallows: Maxim/Rediamond
18= Ghost Town: Complications/King Serperior/Gerard
19= Dusty Desert: Lupus Ater
There are 42 paths that connect the arenas. Save yourself some time and ctrl+f the path you are looking for. The path's names correspond to the arena they connect. Simple Stuff.
Walking gets you through a path/arena in 3 actions, 2EN per action
Running gets you through a path/arena in 2 actions, 4EN per action
Flying: You can fly anywhere within 2 arenas of where you are located, for 15EN. (example: if you are in the south sea, you can fly to the beach/cliff/swamp/desert/jungle/no mans land/tall grass/volcano/all the paths that connect those). Flying takes up two actions. you can fly a1 and a2, a2 and a3, or a3 and then a1 of the next round.
Digging: You can dig anywhere within 2 arena of where you are located, for 15EN. however, you cannot dig through an arena or path that does not allow dig. (look at the arenas/paths and plan before you want to dig travel). Digging takes up two actions. you can dig a1 and a2, a2 and a3, or a3 and then a1 of the next round.
Restrictions/changes regarding Moves
Earthquake/Discharge/moves that hit all opponents
These moves will only hit pokemon who are in the same arena/path as the user when the move is used (Example: Onix uses Earthquake in No Man's Land. There are only 3 other opponents in No Man's Land, and they are the ones that get hit).
You can pull up/make a Substitute. The substitute disappears if the Pokemon leaves the Arena/Path the Substitute was made in (Example: Spinda makes a substitution in the Volcano Arena. Spinda then tries to leave the Volcano Arena, and takes the Volcano-Beach path. The Substitute disappears when spinda steps out of the Volcano Arena).
You can use light screen/reflect on yourself/3 other people. You are always coated in the LS/R, no matter where you move. However, if a pokemon you covered with LS/R leaves the Arena/Path, then they lose LS/R cover (Example: Pyroak/Gardevoir/Dragonite are in the Tall Grass Arena. Gardevoir uses Light Screen, and covers all 3 pokemon. Pyroak however takes the Tall Grass-Beach path to go fight a Mamoswine. Pyroak loses Light Screen cover as soon as it steps out of the Tall Grass arena.)
These moves affect the arena the pokemon is in when they use the move. The pokemon can leave the arena/path, and the arena/path will still retain the Sport/Room/Weather/Haze/Mist/Gravity until someone changes it or it goes away on its own (Example: Dusknoir is alone in the Cave Arena. It uses Trick Room, then takes the Cave-No Man's Land path to go fight a Mr. Mime. The Cave Arena is affected by Trick Room until Dusknoir dies/Trick Room is used again, thus cancelled out/Trick Room fades on its own).
Teleport can be used to flee the Arena where the pokemon is located. Using 10 Energy, the Trainer chooses 4 Arenas/Paths, and then the RNG randomly teleports them to one of those locations
Besides being used as a speed boost and a +1 prior evasive, agility can be used to flee the arena immediately. this is used the first action, and has a cooldown. The cost is 7EN. Agility makes the user flee to any arena connected to the original arena by a path (Example: If Agility (Flee) is used to escape from a battle in the Swamp Arena, the pokemon can choose to either flee to the South Sea/Oceanside Cliff/Jungle/Desert).
Agility (Flee): 7EN, must be used a1. Priority: +1. This command has a cooldown period, during the pokemon's a2. The pokemon flees to an adjacent Arena
If you have a question/concern, PM or VM me, or find me on IRC. Do not post complaints here. We want to keep this Thread professional as possible.
You can only post here if you are using Flavor/Role Playing things. Or, if you are trying to Talk with someone.
DQ Time/Being Late to order: This is the real trouble, where this could go bad. With 20-30 people, things could get hectic, and we could be stalled for weeks before I could receive all the actions and ref. The solution to this is to be a harsh ref. You have 3 days to order after I post the round. This will give you plenty of time to interact and talk with other trainers in the match, or figure out your plan. If you fail to message me your actions within the 3 days, one of two things will happen:
1) The first time you do not message me within 3 days, your Pokemon does not attack, and loses 20 HP/EN that round. This is to encourage that you do not pass the DQ time.
2) The second time you do not message me within 3 days, your pokemon loses all HP/EN, and you are out of the Ultimate Showdown. Yes, this is harsh, but with a large amount of Trainers, we want this to go quick. I have made the punishments severe so that it will encourage you to do as you are asked.
*IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE GONE, ON VACATION/CAMPING/CANT GET TO COMPUTER, LET ME KNOW ASAP* If you inform me beforehand, that will help your situation much better. Remember though, there might not be much I can do for you. The Ultimate Showdown is a commitment. If you let me know you will be gone, I will allow your Pokemon to be idle, and not lose any HP/EN (though it is still vulnerable to enemy attacks). Still, you have 3 days from when I post the round, so you should be able to get actions in.
I will ref the battle in 1-4 days time. Remember, the Ultimate Showdown will be unlike any other melee we have seen. I will need some time.
1st Place - One Master Ball, 10CC, Ultimate bragging right
2nd Place- 30UC
3rd Place - 20UC
4th Place- 10UC
5th Place- 5UC
Everyone Else- 5CC
"This match is going to be in the history books hundreds of years from now!"
Now, before I instruct you all on how to attack, let's reveal some tricks I have up my sleeves!
-There is a lottery every round (until I say so), and when a person sends me their actions, they can either say I'm in or I'm out (You are "out" if you say neither). Then, i tally up who is in. Depending on how many people are "in" you are healed or hurt
1: The trainer gets a "+70HP&EN" card, which they can play at any time, or give to any pokemon, or give to any trainer for them to use. If the trainer's pokemon is KOed, the Card is wasted and cannot be given away.
2-5: Pokemon heal 7HP/EN every action for 2 rounds (This happens before pokemon attack), and are cured of all harmful statuses
6-9: Pokemon heal 3HP/EN every action for 2 rounds (This happens before pokemon attack),
10-14: Pokemon heal 10HP/EN at the beginning of the round
17: A SURPRISE!
20-24: Pokemon lose a flat 30 speed for 2 rounds (80 spe Mamo becomes 50 spe)
25-29: Pokemon lose STAB for 1 round, and get damaged 10HP/EN at the beginning of the round
30-34:Pokemon take 5HP/EN damage every action for 2 rounds (This happens before pokemon attack)
35- Every Pokemon loses 40HP/40EN, and is given Toxic Poison (If immune to poison, then they are burned. If immune to burn, then they are 30% Paralyzed (Yes, there isn't a natural 30% para, but this will happen))
-Each Person has a Mortal Enemy. They do not know who it is though. If they attack their Mortal Enemy, their attack gains +5 final damage. Also, you cannot be given stat drops/status effects/taunted/tormented/spited/disabled/encored by your Mortal Enemy. You and your Mortal Enemy can only attack each other with damaging attacks. If you are the one to KO your Mortal Enemy, you get a +70HP&EN card, which they can play at any time, or give to any pokemon, or give to any trainer for them to use. If the trainer's pokemon is KOed, the Card is wasted and cannot be given away.
-At the end of the round, it will be announced that a care package is going to be dropped. i will RNG where, and tell them where. The care package will land at the end of the following round. I will also give a hint as to how good the care package is.
-Each Arena is vulnerable to a completely random and unsuspecting natural disaster/event. up to 5 arenas can be affected by a natural disaster in a round. There will be no natural Disasters occurring for the first 2 rounds.
There will be more tricks/twists/events that have not been revealed. be prepared, for they will come without much warning!
"Now, I wish you all the best of luck. Remember, not everyone has to be an enemy. Be smart, and stay on your toes! use the nature i have provided you with.... or else it will use you!"
Order of Operations
Everyone has 3 days to PM me their actions
PM me 3 actions
(Beware of passing the DQ)
I will then ref between 1-4 days
All pokemon have 4 Recovery move uses, and 20 Chills
3 substitutions +1KO sub
LET THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN BEGIN~!

Complications pulls his fedora a little lower as a dust devil whips by him, stinging his eyes. To his side, Optimus stands unmoving. Complications looks around the town he's in, noting his surroundings. He spots King Serperior, along with his Nidoking, and Gerard with his Togekiss. "What do you make of this," Optimus asks. Complications looks towards his most trusted ally and says, "I'm not sure yet, but needless to say a plan is forming..."

"Whelp. We just had to end up directly in the bulls-eye. Just great.
The good news is that no one else is here. We better get out of here - and fast. This area is going to get real ugly. We better find some allies while we're at it."
"Yessir! Sounds like a sage plan to me!"

Simon wakes up slowly, eyes fading in and out of focus. His head spinning, he made a slow survey of the area.
Snow. Blinding, biting snow that sneaks through every crevice, chilling to the bone. Flicking his collar up against the wind, he looks across the outcrop, to the other sillouettes in the flurry; a Conkeldurr hOnKiNg to itself, and a Gastrodon looking decidely uncomfortable.
"Whoa... What? How did I get here... Ugh. Dammit Glacier, why do you always take me to such frigid locations... Glacier..?
"Creon, you okay, buddy?"
The furry mass of the Laziness behind Simon grunted, seeming mildly annoyed by the weather, but not uncomfortable.
My Tale is a Long One...
I say we take all the Justin Beibers and Jersey Shore,
and shoot them at the Moon with a Moon Cannon.CAP ASB. The Nerds of the Nerd Community.
They don't have to make it to the Moon, though.

Madotsuki looked around. "Couldn't have asked for a more... pleasant area to start in. Sickening, almost..."
Doc Scratch chimed in. <I'll say. It doesn't quite befit a man of my charisma, to be in such an exposed place. You must work to find true beauty, you know. Unless you're me. Hoo.>
"Hmm?" Madotsuki looked at figures in the distance. "We have company."
<Perhaps we should show them... our hospitality?>
"No... we shouldn't start fighting yet. Let's see what they have to say."
<I meant hospitality. I always say exactly what I mean.>

In what was going to almost certainly be a short lived melee for him, Random figures out that he & his Pokťmon were dealt a cruel hand by Glacier Knight's RNG, finding himself in the most popular room of all rooms...
"Well, look where we landed...Out of all the places we could have possibly land, we find ourselves in a room of six...Just fucking perfect. I doubt this mad bunch will approve of our dusty entrance, so...inb4 a flurry of trips, I guess..."

I am an "Andalite Bandit." Shiver in fear while you can, Yeerks. We're coming for you!
I look around the dusty, Western-style town that I was dropped off at and try to catch my bearings. I hear a thumping noise to my side and turn to see King stomping a perimeter around me.
"King, let us look for either friends or foes. I would prefer the former."
King looks at me and snorts. We begin moving from building to building. Though we see many sets of stairs, we decide to not go up them. After about 15 minutes, we arrive at the center of the town and see four figures: The trainers, Complications and Gerard, and their pokemon, Bisharp and Togekiss.
"So, King, what should we do now? We have found both a friend and a foe."
"I say that we move out of this area now. Though the buildings look safe, they are on weak ground. I smelled a swamp some distance away. Perhaps we should go there?"
"Good idea. Let us talk to Comp and Gerard. Perhaps we can avoid a confict this early?"
"Fine. I could care less."
With that out of the way, King and I position ourselves beside Complications and his Bisharp and face Gerard and his Togekiss.
Notice: will be inactive for a day or two. Shouldn't be more than 2 days.. Sorry, please forgive me.

No prey in sight... but I do like the locale.
I wanted destruction...
Be patient, my rocky friend, it is said that good things come to those who can wait. And now, it is time for the hunter's eternal dilemma... what way to pick? Or should we stay and give ourselves tactical advantage? Decisions, decisions...

Well look what we have here, Boss! Three targets!
Don't get cocky, Rico. You know damn well we're at a disadvantage here.
What do you suggest we do then?
Well, we either hightail it for better odds, or we forge alliances. And the sooner we get some of those, the better.

Why me? Steve is your best friend, and Dizzy really wanted to come....why did you choose me?
''I.....do not know, actualy....i think i just went with my gut.''
Fair enough....whats the plan? I dont think you plan to attack that trainer.
''First, we gotta make allies....and i think i know where we should go.''
Hopefully it has a good breeze.

Brr...this place is colder than Lorelei after I asked her out on a date! I'm not sure if we can take the massive hailstorm that could come at any second. What say you, Lumber?
LUMBER NO LIKE HAIL! LUMBER SMASH PUNY ICE!
Yes, that's what I thought. Let's take a look around for some other trainers, shall we? Looks like we have a Slaking and a Gastrodon with us today. They seem as out of place as we are, Lumber! Shall we give them a hand?
LUMBER'S BOOM STICKS ARE FROZEN. LUMBER HAS HARD TIME GRABBING BOOM STICKS! LUMBER WANTS WARMTH!
Perhaps now isn't the time to confront anyone, at least not in this weather. Unless provoked, of course! Let's see if we can move away from this spot, or at least grab a cup of tea with a potential friend!
LUMBER LIKE COFFEE, NOT TEA! BLACK COFFEE!
Okay, okay, coffee it is. Just don't get too hopped up on caffeine, we need to conserve our energy!

Alright, let's see what surprises there are in store for us.
There's something about A SURPRISE! that intrigues me, since it'll almost certainly put in a fun twist somewhere. That's why I'm setting this plan in motion. I want exactly seventeen of us—no more, no less—to participate in the lottery. To ensure that we do have seventeen, I request the following:
1) IF you have already sent in actions to participate in the lottery THEN tell me saying you have. Hopefully we haven't had seventeen people that have sent in actions with participation yet.
2) IF you have not sent in actions yet AND would like to participate in the lottery AND there are less than 17 participants so far THEN tell me saying you will. This is so we can ensure that exactly 17 people are in the lottery.
3) IF you are not participating THEN post saying you aren't. You might be able tell me over IRC but don't assume that I'll see it since I'm idle half the time. What I end up wanting to have is 35 people that fit into either "IN" or "OUT."
Know that everybody will probably be able to tell who participated and who didn't, so if you're going to rescind on your participation there won't be a person that doesn't know it. I'll keep a list of participants here:
3. Madotsuki [PM]
8. rickheg [VM]
9. Frosty [PM]
1. King Serperior
6. SimonSays [PM]
8. Objection [PM]

It was in my sleeve the WHOLE TIME!
I would just like to say that the Tall Grass is hilarious.
That is all.
I mentioned that I wasn't going to be on much because the new house has no interwebz, but it now turns out it could be any time until the 4th of April, which means (weirdly) that I'll mostly be available whenever I'm at university - not so much during the weekends and nights. But I'll see what I can do.
EDIT: Fucking Hard Drive broke. IRC doesn't look like it's going to happen for a while.

The Ultimate Showdown: Round One
"...And so it begins..."
Three boats were dispatched to bring the whole lot; It took some time, but eventually all three made it safely into the port. A shady figure gazed at the majestic ships as they slowly lolled into place. The Observatory was a good distance away, but the figure could keenly make out each of the Thirty-Five participants he had invited to his realm. The man did not care about past events; everyone from Ghetsis to Gym leaders, to Werewolves and scientists, and all the trainers in-between had been asked to sign up.... and sign up they did. Now, as the sun began to swirl the sky with sunset shades, the figure awaited the group's approach. Some walked faster than others, seemingly nervous about having to trek through a foreign place at night. Others took their time, walking slower to purposely inspect their opponents. Trying to find allies, perhaps? With a click of a button, the figure's platform causally descended to the ground floor. He had prepare to welcome his guests lavishly, of course.
When all thirty-five newcomers arrived at the large observatory, the figure introduced himself. As explained over a lush 4 course dinner, the reason to summon the most eclectic group of trainers in all the world was to create a most interesting battle: A melee like no other, The Ultimate Showdown. The synopsis was left with many holes, and numerous questions unanswered. The charitable figure merely shirked them off; they would soon find out for themselves the answers, or else perish. With that, he sent his contestants to bed, each with their own luxurious quarters. Night gracefully waltzed through the sky, with sparkling deposits of galaxies and stars. But things seem quite hasty, as the Sun eagerly burst from the horizon and night ceased to exist.
A quick breakfast, and then The Figure appeared once more, silently but powerfully making his presence known. The games were scheduled to begin at noon. Prep your precious partner, and deposit their container capsule in the teleporting organizer on the top observing deck. The faces smiled, grinned, grimaced, and shirked. The figure left with content thoughts: the diversity would surely prove entertaining.
Things began precisely and with haste. The participants, six or seven at a time, jammed into the platform, flustered and nervous as they ascended to where things got very serious. Their minds flashed back to the previous talk of Prizes: the figure was very charitable, and exceedingly rich, and was able to bestow upon the victors the most glorious of gifts. They also pondered the words of fellow competitors.... the figure was correct in his assumption of alliances being born prematurely. In no time, everyone was situated in the marvelous observation deck, a room that surely was the quintessence of The Figure's wealth. Some looked out and stared at Massimo, the large expanse of land and water which was The Figure's own making. Others silently awaited the beginning.
The Figure saw their ambitious eyes, felt the intense silence.
So it began. With an easy wave of the hand, the Pokemon were launched into battle.
"Let the Ultimate Showdown Begin..."
Speed Order: Crobat-Zoroark/Krilowatt-Volcarona-Hydreigon-Haxorus-Lucario(TRG)/Lucario(Ranger)-Emolga-Charizard/Slaking-Togekiss(Gerard)-Medicham-Lucario(Wanderer)/PorygonZ-Nidoking-Gallade(Pwne)/Gallade(Alex)/Togekiss(EM)/Cyclohm/Togekiss(Wolfe)-Bisharp-Scizor-Tyranitar-Jellicent-Pyroak-Conkeldurr/Dusknoir(Madot)-Muk/Lickylicky-Hippodown-Dusknoir(Rick)-Gastrodon-Slowbro-Dusclops
First things First, the Lottery began! The contestants were told they could possibly gain a valuable item, as long as they played their cards right....
10 People Are in the Lottery! That means....
they heal 10Hp and EN instantly at the beginning of the round!
...Alright, so that did nothing really, since everyone is at full HP/EN. Better luck next time folks!
The Figure leaned over from his resting spot, his eye caught on Six fierce pokemon located in the Tall Grasses of Massimo. A quick smile graced his face; eyes focused on what could be an interesting fight. Sadly, his wish was lost upon the participants. Communicating with technology bestowed by the Figure himself, they whispered commands of flight. One by one, the six dispersed, which made the Figure lose focus in a sullen manner. even the remaining two, an Emolga and Hippodown did not accomplish much, though excitement was spread with the flying squirrel's successful Thunder wave. The fleeing Togekiss was now crippled. perfect pray for a later day? The Figure did look intently at the Volcarona, for it seemed to be enacting a devious plot. Before fleeing to a grassy route, it released a large span of fire, starting a chain reaction in the large field. As the fire began to spread, the Flaming Insect fled to the beach, but only after lighting his escape hatch ablaze as well.
The Figure glanced at the Volcano breifly, then quickly turned back, as a much more heated battle was taking place. A Lickylicky and a Charizard stood proud and menacing, fighting with glares and grunts. Finally the Lickylicky was first to take action, giving a war cry while gaining some spinning momentum. the winds began to increase pick up light matter, be it rocks or grit or chunks of lava. A Sandstorm? The Figure chuckled as the move conformed to the arena. Not a sandstorm, but a fire storm, and it raged brutally, making the arena hotter and hotter. The Charizard seemed not to notice for the time being, and spread its wings, charging his bulky enemy with verve. The Lickylicky is a hefty species, but the brute power of the Charizard was able to snatch the pink blob up into the air, and up they went. Soaring, Soaring..... chunks of hot rock and grit getting in the avian's eyes and wings. However, it got to a perfect height, and looked below. The volcano's center seemed small, but the intense heat could be felt from all the way up in the clouds. With a sinister smirk, the Charizard used its might to hoist the blubbering beast above its head, in the air mind you, and toss it viciously to the ground. The Lickylicky's cry echoed through all the levels of the atmosphere, as it plummeted faster and faster. The heat was about to be too much for the thing, but matters got worse when the Lickylicky actually landed in the lava! The Charizard had made its mark with clean precision, and it descended to the ground as its enemy was busy burning alive, frothing around in the crater of lava. The screams were too much. It gave one last grunt of pain, then released a brown wave of water, which sent the whole volcano center into a tizzy. The cool water that was summoned created a thick steam, but did manage to harden some of the lava. The charizard, not sure of what was going on, simply stared at the column of thick white smoke pouring from the volcano, cooling down from its Seismic Toss+Fly combo. Maybe Lickylicky was cooked?
The Figure nodded approvingly at the Charizard's creativity, then looked around the rest of Massimo. In the far north, he spied a Slaking, Conkeldurr, and Gastrodon. Would they duke it out to the end? The Figure frowned as this proved wrong. The three figure made haste to flee from the blizzarding condition, heading south to the cave system. All three of them? Maybe they were allianced... Though Slaking didn't leave as quickly as the others. Fearing attack, it set up a protective beam, then watched his enemies flee south. He ran after them.... maybe to attack from behind?
The Figure glanced at all of Massimo, and was afraid to say that it seemed to all be the same. The lake, with four participants battling on the surf, seemed to empty pretty quickly, only leaving a flustered Medicham and a taunted Dusclops. The Krilowatt fled its own turf, a very nice piece of surd. And the Lucario ran quickly to the hills, hoping to avoid contact. Would the Medicham and Dusclops make friends now? or would a showdown take place?
On the Eastern Hemisphere, the Figure spied pokemon merely walking. A bisharp and nidoking, hand in hand, strolled to the jungle, leaving a Togekiss to set up and claim dominance in the Ghost town. The Swamp became home to a Jellicent and a Haxorus, though the latter quickly fled. Good thing too, the Jellicent had a dastardly plan to drown the Dragon in the murky depths of the swamp sludge. However, its leading cause of failure was its speed. But, the Figure noticed a Lucario sneaking up from behind, coming from the Jungle. Will it battle the slippery Ghost? or can it flee before it becomes the victim Haxorus could have been?
The last major battle The Figure took an interest to was in the north, the Deathly Hallows. A Porygon-Z and Scizor quickly began to duke it out, though the Porygon fell behind. It tried to use a Conversion 2 attack, but failed to do so, since it was faster than his opponent, and it had not attacked before. Still, the metal bug was dealt a nice divvy of damage, and things seemed about even. Who would rise victorious?
One more glance at the Volcano was made, and The Figure was surprised to see a Lucario there! It was not the one who ran from the lake, or the one traversing the jungle. Where did it come from? The charizard didnt seem to notice though, as it tried to blast its burnt prey from the sky. The Fire Blast missed and skimmed the edge of the volcano, which did absolutely nothing. The Lickylicky took a bit more damage from the lava, but a defense curl attack left him hard as a rock. The Heat was finally being ignored. and he could attack! Now if he could only get out of the huge lava center....
The Figure snapped his fingers, and the Lickylicky was transported out of the volcano, still burned, but able to fight his foe. He wouldnt have been able to get out of there anyways. But now there was a third party. Would the Lucario help? or send the Lickylicky to his doom?
And what about the beach? A hyrdeigon burst from the tall grass, and dragon pulsed the nesting cyclohm, who was creating a nasty trap. The dusknoir that was on the beach was creating a nasty trap as well. Would they be activated? what would happen? The beach began to glisten though, as the Sun shone brightly. Cyclohm's sunny day was working against him it seemed, for although it did get hotter, the bright rays reflected the sand, and the intensity began to blind all who stayed around in the arena. Volcarona finished its blazing trail by ending in the Beach, which left a party of four on the glistening sand.
One more battle was visible, and the Figure craned his neck to the north, but westward, to a snowy covered plain. A Pyroak roared voraciously as it took battle stance, setting up trickery. Its Opponent, a Slowbro, was having none of it though. It fervently smashed a brickbreak into the Screen, shattering it beyond use, and then battered the Substitute with watery attacks. The side seemed to favor the slowbro, but the Pyroak didnt seem to counter at all. Not yet anyway....
As for the others i did not mention earlier, A Muk traveled to the jungle, a Togekiss and a Gallade were spotted finishing the round at the Flavor Special, one due to the craftiness of Teleporting, and a Zoroark is no where to be found. the Cliff is now bare, with a single hole in the center....
The Figure was all around displeased at the display. Angrily, he spoke out amongst the chatting group
"Dear friends... it seems you misunderstood why you are here. YOU ARE NOT HERE TO DILLY DALLY. YOU ARE HERE TO BE THE BEST."
"....my apologizes. Not all of you were pathetic shmucks. I give credit to the Charizard and Lickylicky, as the PorygonZ and Scizor. The Pyroak and Slowbro were valiant as well. May luck be with you six. As for the rest.... you've had your round of rest. Show me why you are worthy of the Prize! Show me why you are meant to be the best of the best!"
"...or else you will suffer punishment."
