    Although I have experienced some pretty cool battles, so far this one has taken the cake. Since I want experience in these sort of war stories should I experience an epic battle in future, I decided to write up a war story for a recent battle of mine. Hope you guys like it! :D

    My Team: [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    Opponent's team: (Well, you'll just have to find out, wont you? ;D)


    Opponent sent out PAK-5X Strike R (lvl 100 Togekiss ♂)!
    Shamethat sent out Double Shot (lvl 100 Ambipom ♂)!

    =============== Begin turn #1
    [​IMG] vs [​IMG]
    @Shamethat: G'luck
    Double Shot used Fake Out!
    PAK-5X Strike R lost 35% of its health! Double Shot lost 29/292 (9%) of its health!
    PAK-5X Strike R flinched!

    No sooner had I stepped onto the field of battle; when my Ambipom took on a mind of its own. It struck out with a closing slap, stunning my foe; the bird born from happiness, Togekiss.

    =============== Begin turn #2
    Double Shot used Taunt!
    PAK-5X Strike R fell for the taunt!
    PAK-5X Strike R used Aura Sphere!
    It's super effective!
    Double Shot lost 263/292 (90%) of its health!
    Double Shot fainted!
    Shamethat sent out Fat Quake (lvl 100 Mamoswine ♂)!

    I ordered Ambipom to trick the bird into attacking, but before I could finish the sentence, a blast of pure fighting spirit slammed into Ambipoms chest. I ran over to him, and withdrew him into his pokéball. You fought well.

    6-5: Opponent


    =============== Begin turn #3
    [​IMG] vs [​IMG]
    Fat Quake used Ice Shard!
    It's super effective!
    PAK-5X Strike R lost 64% of its health!
    Fat Quake lost 36/361 (9%) of its health!
    PAK-5X Strike R used Aura Sphere!
    It's super effective!
    Fat Quake lost 325/361 (90%) of its health!
    Fat Quake fainted!
    @Shamethat: Wait
    @Shamethat: wut
    Shamethat sent out Blaze Monkey (lvl 100 Infernape ♂)!

    I sent out my Mamoswine, the earth trembling under his gargantuan figure. I ordered him to lash out with an unbelievably quick shard of ice, to cut through the birds wings. But even when he shot the ice through the air, the bird simply let itself be cut, and retaliated with the dreaded sphere. Mamoswine fell to the ground, leaving me one pokemon shorter already.

    6-4: Opponent
    =============== Begin turn #4
    [​IMG] vs [​IMG]
    @Opponent: G'Luck
    @Shamethat: xD
    PAK-5X Strike R used ExtremeSpeed!
    Blaze Monkey lost 70/309 (22%) of its health!
    Blaze Monkey used Hidden Power!
    It's super effective!
    PAK-5X Strike R lost 0% of its health!
    PAK-5X Strike R fainted!
    Blaze Monkey lost 30/309 (9%) of its health!
    Opponent sent out HonorPD (lvl 100 Drapion ♂)!

    I sent out my blazing Monkey, Infernape. I tell him to summon his hidden powers to faint our opponent, and even as the bird charges Infernape with speeds of extreme condition, he shrugs off the blow and blasts back with his hidden power, defeating our enemy.

    5-4: Plasmaaa

    =============== Begin turn #5
    [​IMG] vs [​IMG]
    Shamethat withdrew Blaze Monkey!
    Shamethat sent out Poison Gasbag (lvl 100 Weezing ♂)!
    HonorPD used Toxic Spikes!
    Toxic Spikes were scattered around the foe's team!

    A cloud of noxious gas envelops the stadium as Weezing enters, enough to choke any pokemon without the need for attack. But Drapion does not seem to mind, and I feel a pang of fear. What is this thing?

    =============== Begin turn #6
    Poison Gasbag used Fire Blast!
    HonorPD lost 37% of its health!
    HonorPD used Whirlwind!
    Shamethat sent out Hax Kid (lvl 100 Jirachi)!
    HonorPD's Black Sludge restored its health a little!
    HonorPD regained 6% of its health!

    Weezing lets lose a wall of flame from his mouth, melting the scorpions armour. In retaliation, the scorpion whirls its tail around, and blasts a cyclone at Weezing, flying him off the stadium, and sending in a different pokemon... the legendary wishmaker, Jirachi.

    =============== Begin turn #7
    [​IMG] vs [​IMG]
    Hax Kid used Psychic!
    It doesn't affect HonorPD...
    HonorPD used Whirlwind!
    Shamethat sent out Pink Egg (lvl 100 Blissey ♀)!
    Pink Egg was poisoned!
    Pink Egg was poisoned by the Toxic Spikes!
    HonorPD's Black Sludge restored its health a little!
    HonorPD regained 6% of its health!
    Pink Egg is hurt by poison!
    Pink Egg lost 82/657 (12%) of its health!

    I tell Jirachi to hit the creature with a blast of psychic energy, but when it goes to do so, it cannot penetrate the creatures mind. Another blast of wind flies Jirachi off the stadium and sends in my powerful defender, Blissey.

    =============== Begin turn #8
    [​IMG] vs [​IMG]
    @Shamethat: What type is Drapion? @.@
    HonorPD used Swords Dance!
    HonorPD's attack was sharply raised!
    Pink Egg used Ice Beam!
    HonorPD lost 27% of its health!
    HonorPD's Black Sludge restored its health a little!
    HonorPD regained 6% of its health!
    Pink Egg's Leftovers restored its health a little!
    Pink Egg regained 41/657 (6%) of its health!
    Pink Egg is hurt by poison!
    Pink Egg lost 82/657 (12%) of its health!

    Out of curiosity, I ask to know exactly what Drapion is.. but my opponent simply shrugs, so I send in something I know can take a physical hit from anything: Weezing.

    =============== Begin turn #9
    [​IMG] vs [​IMG]
    @Opponent: idk
    Shamethat withdrew Pink Egg!
    Shamethat sent out Poison Gasbag (lvl 100 Weezing ♂)!

    It's not very effective...
    Poison Gasbag lost 63/334 (18%) of its health!
    HonorPD's Black Sludge restored its health a little!
    HonorPD regained 6% of its health!
    Poison Gasbag's Leftovers restored its health a little!
    Poison Gasbag regained 20/334 (5%) of its health!

    The feeling of crossed blades burns into Weezings skin, but it shrugs it off and prepares to deal out some hurt.

    =============== Begin turn #10
    [​IMG] vs [​IMG]
    Poison Gasbag used Fire Blast!
    HonorPD lost 35% of its health!
    HonorPD used Whirlwind!

    Pink Egg is hurt by poison!
    Pink Egg lost 82/657 (12%) of its health!

    Another blast of fire envelops the scorpion. It is close to death now, I can sense it.

    Shamethat sent out Poison Gasbag (lvl 100 Weezing ♂)!

    More mindless switching, as my Jirachi flies into play yet again.

    @Shamethat: I dont like that thing >.<
    Plasmaaa sent out Heavy-Duty Tank (lvl 100 Vespiquen ♀)!
    Heavy-Duty Tank is exerting its Pressure!

    Two bolts of lightning electrify the creature, and it finally falls. I curse its name as my opponent withdraws it into its ball.

    4-4: Tie

    =============== Begin turn #14

    The queen of all bees now reveals itself onto the field; Vespiqueen, a huge, frightening controller of bees and wasps everywhere. It orders the bee’s to rush to its side in defence as Weezing prepares another blast of flame.

    =============== Begin turn #15

    Poison Gasbag used Fire Blast!
    Heavy-Duty Tank protected itself!

    Shamethat sent out Blaze Monkey (lvl 100 Infernape ♂)!
    Blaze Monkey was poisoned!
    Blaze Monkey was poisoned by the Toxic Spikes!

    In fear of an unstoppably defensive Vespiqueen, I order Weezing to commit his final act: Exploding. And yet, the metallic wall protects Vespiqueen from any effects of the flames.

    4-3: Opponent
    =============== Begin turn #18

    @Shamethat: The ultimate Nape counter is Porygon :P
    Opponent sent out ValorPD (lvl 100 Scizor ♂)!

    I laugh at my opponent as they send out Porygon Z, the digital pokemon; a few quick punches from Infernape takes it out with record time.

    2-3: Shamethat

    Breloom was badly poisoned!
    @Shamethat: Oh deer
    Shamethat sent out Hax Kid (lvl 100 Jirachi)!

    I spoke too soon; I see my opponent send out the dreaded mushroom pokemon; the sleeper, the creator of rhydon dolls, and most frighteningly of all, the focus puncher; breloom. A blazing quick punch eliminates Infernape, and I send out Jirachi to combat the situation.

    2-1: Shamethat

    =============== Begin turn #22
    [​IMG] vs [​IMG]
    @Shamethat: CRAP

    Breloom used Spore!
    Hax Kid fell asleep!
    Hax Kid is fast asleep.

    I panic as I give Jirachi the wrong orders, but it makes no difference; he falls asleep right away. I feel fear in the pit of my stomach; if Jirachi dies, it’s all over... Blissey can’t take a Mach Punch to save its life.

    Breloom's attack was sharply raised!
    Hax Kid is fast asleep.
    Breloom's Poison Heal restored health!
    Breloom regained 12% of its health!

    I hear the sound of metal against metal... it is performing a dance with swords to make its attack even higher.

    =============== Begin turn #25
    Breloom used Swords Dance!
    Breloom's attack was sharply raised!
    Hax Kid woke up!

    As the second swords dance occurs, Jirachi wakes up, and blasts the Rhydon doll off the field with a blob of psychic energy.

    @Shamethat: GG D;
    @Shamethat: This is why my Rachi needs a scarf
    Breloom used Spore!

    @Opponent: LOOOOOOL
    @Shamethat: YAY
    @Opponent: PURE LUCK
    @Opponent: Gg
    @Shamethat: xD
    @Shamethat: GG

    As if in a daze, I run out onto the field and hug Jirachi. He woke up, he took the blazing punch, and retaliated with the most powerful psychic I have ever encountered. Well done, Jirachi!

    Props:
    -Jirachi, for waking up at the perfect moment
    -Infernape, for sweeping like a boss

    Slops:
    -Me, for not knowing Drapions typing
    -Me, for exploding on a protecting Vespiqueen
    -Me, for getting Mamoswine and Ambipom killed right away.

    Drapion is a Poison/Dark type. You might have been confused because it evolves from Skorupi, a Poison/Bug.

    Hm, what to say... I'm afraid there were a lot of mistakes made in this match. Quite a few times Pokémon were switched into very bad matchups or left in to fight hard to win battles; Ambipom Taunting Togekiss was a mistake right from the start, and more followed. Keeo trying, though, and I'm sure you'll have a better battle to warstory!

    Hmm I like it. But my biggest complaint is that it's kind of hard to follow how much HP a pokemon has left at the moment. I love the "dramatic" descriptions! B+

    It was a fun read :)
    I'm gunna mirror the other posters and say try to talk more of what you were thinking during the battle. Why you did or were going to make certain moves. Great effort though.
