    Cmon' Sone! (duskull with levitate)

    I understand you don't like the light, but we won't be long! To start this show off, launch a confuse ray at the ....um.. cloud... sheep.. to make it delirious. Then, create clones with double team of yourself so we can really have fun with it. Lastly, chip away at his health with a faint attack. Hopefully, we can pull this off.

    well that isn't nice

    start off by hitting the duskull with hydro pump before you're hit with confuse ray and growl while it double teams. finish the round by hopefully hitting it with thunderbolt. There isn't much chance at avoiding that confuse ray, so we'll work with what we've got.

    ___________________________

    As soon as the commands are issued, a powerful stream of water shoots out of the cloud-sheep's mouth, smacking the ghost in the face. As Duskull struggles back to its levitating position, he fires off a Confuse Ray at Monohm, which hits and leaves Niles dazed.

    While Niles has been ordered to Growl at the opposing ghost, Sone's strategy seems to be paying off as he accidentally trips and smacks his head against the ground. Taking advantage of the opponent's distraction, the Duskull creates a clone of himself.

    The Monohm recovers from his confusion long enough to make a guess at which Duskull should receive the Thunderbolt and forms one out of thin air. Unfortunately, he misguesses and the wall behind the illusion starts to crack. Sone, laughing evilly to himself, strikes close with a Faint Attack.

    ok this isn't fun, start off by using thunderbolt on the duskull that just hit you with faint attack. follow up by growling again and finish off with thunderbolt. you already saw which of the duskull was the clone, so you should be able to hit the legit one if you stay focused on it/when it hits you.

    Looks like our cover's blown. Oh well.
    As Niles attemptes to set off a thunderbolt, sidehover (?) to your left as you disable the move, to avoid future stings. Then, release toxins from your cloak to give us some edge, and finally, faint attack again.

    disable>>>toxic>>>faint attack

    nah you're probably misreading energy/hp. gk did it too. anyways:

    Despite a feeling of bewilderment, Niles steadies himself and fires a dead-on Thunderbolt at Duskull. As the attack hits and stuns Sone, his doppelganger disintegrates. However, he recovers fast enough to erase the memory of thunderbolt from the Monohm's mind, stopping him from using it.

    Shocked that his opponent would go far enough to wrench the attack out of his Pokemon's mind, an enraged Goldenknight orders his Monohm to Growl fiercely at the Duskull. But once again, Niles trips and stuns himself. Sone takes advantage of this by throwing toxic energies at the cloudsheep, but Niles bounds up with startling speed and dodges the attack.

    The monohm manages to remember that he was told to "thunderbolt", but doesn't quite realize what was meant by that and relaxes, ready to react to whatever Sone throws at him. However, he is struck by the unmissing Faint Attack and spins uncontrollably for a moment. This blow seems to relieve him of his confusion, however, and he prepares for his next attack.

    This is surtastically, fantabulously fun!

    Toxic would've helped.
    Lets start off with a confuse ray. We don't want him in the right mindset. Then another toxic to chip away some more health, and finally, pain split, to compensate for our naturally low vitality.

    confuse ray>>>toxic>>>pain split

    Just for the record, the confusion expired at the end of the second action, but he didn't do anything on the third.

    fun

    jump into one of the walkways and thunderbolt at the ceiling to offset the light from confuse ray. follow up by chilling as you're poisoned and finish with heal bell

    would pain split count as a recovery move?

    Pain split doesn't count, i checked with dk. anyways:

    The round begins with Niles carefully aiming a thunderbolt towards the ceiling as Sone Confuse Rays him. His plan is successful, as the light from the thunderbolt differs from the type utilized by the Duskull and the attack fails.

    Frustrated, the Duskull is ordered to send out a cloud of toxins, which settle around the Monohm and intoxicate him. This is just fine by Niles, however, who just sits there and relaxes. This appears to invigorate him somewhat. However the toxins seem to be taking their toll, and he reels a bit.

    Niles hums a tune and soon, blue waves emanate from him with a bell sound, miraculously curing his status affliction. Not to be outdone, the Duskull, reaching into arcane and forbidden energies, appears to glow in a faint blue as the Monohm glows much brighter. The two blue glows even out to a medium-high intensity, and Sone grins evilly.

    start out by growling at sone and hopefully intimidate it enough to stop being so mean ;L;. After that go ahead and use thunderbolt on it following up with dragon pulse

    if it uses toxic, replace the action directly after with heal bell and the one before it hits with chill
    if it uses confuse ray, replace the action directly/during(?) before it hits you with chill

    While Niles growls, shoot a confuse ray at it. Then, night shade twice, to finally be on the offensive.

    confuse ray>>>night shade>>>night shade

    yo sorry it took so long

    As Niles the Monohm and Sone the Duskull stare down each other from third and second base respectively, some remnant sparks from Niles's thunderbolt trick fall onto the diamond and light parts of the area between the pitchers mound and the bases on fire! Unfazed, the Monhom relaxes coolly and regains some energy. However Sone capitalizes on his inactivity and confuses him with a ray of light.

    Slightly dazed, Niles fires off an accurate Thunderbolt slamming Sone backwards. The bolt of electricity leaves a residual shock to his system. The Duskull retaliates with a shadow extending across the diamond which steals a precise amount of the Monohm's health.

    Again the Monohm seems unaffected by the inflicted confusion and forces mystic energies into a sphere, firing it at the grinning ghost. The attack looks to go through him but Duskull staggers somewhat and it is clear the Dragon Pulse solidly hit. Unfazed, Sone shoots out another shadow which has a similar effect.

    [notrp] The fire will spread by a little bit each round. Running into it will cause 2 HP damage and has a 5% chance for a burn which expires in two turns.[/notrp]

    OK, Sone, we're in a tight spot, but that's what we want! First chill, then, chill, then, pain split! Hopefully we can live it out!

    chill - chill - pain split

    as you can tell, i'm no baseball fanatic.


    Wary of the ever-spreading fire, both trainers task their Pokemon to merely regain energy. Niles accomplishes this by basking in the glow of the electric lighting, whereas the Duskull shies away to where the light doesn't shine to refresh himself. Meanwhile, the fire continues to spread across the infield grass, dangerously close to the combatants.

    A bit frightened, the Monohm responds to the threat of fire by performing an ancient, ritualistic dance which causes rain clouds to appear inside the stadium and it begins to pour. Sone, grinning evilly, takes advantage of the light being blocked by the clouds and chills out and regains some more energy.

    Niles seems to be planning something evil, as he charges up and begins storing electric energy. The rain continues to pour, which dampens the grass and extinguishes the fire as the Duskull causes the energy levels of the two Pokemon to become visible, then balances them.

    Sone, this may very well be our last round. Here's what to do: Pain split, and if you're still kickin' launch a confuse ray. Lastly, if you're still alive, give off a night shade.

    Sone, to be honest, I was pretty pathetic commanding you, but I - we- will learn form my mistakes. *a single tear falls* Well, you're a good mon' - one o the best stallmons in this non-stall metagame! Although you didn't get the kill, Raff will avenge you. And he won't be nice.

    charge one more time before launching a combo of thunderbolt and hydro pump. Hopefully this will be able to provide enough power from rain, two charges, and the newly quenched fire to not only end Sone, but do so in a way powerful enough to take out the scoreboards... those scoreboards will provide the fireworks that will end the round as if a home run was hit during a game.

    As the round begins, Duskull, clearly predicting a powerful attack, begins evening the two combatant's but fails, due to the fact that Niles is merely continuing to charge energy.

    Seeing the Monohm not yet ready, the Duskull launches a mystical ray of light at Niles, which dims its inherent cleverness but does not prevent it from slamming Sone with a Hydro Pump into the air, directly in front of the scoreboard, and follows up by unleashing all of his stored energy into the form of a Thunderbolt, cleanly KOing the Duskull and causing sparks to fly from the broken scoreboards. However, the effect is muted by the torrential rain.

    ok, let's get things going by abusing that very nice charge and using thunderbolt. Follow up with a chill because that last combo and its set up took a lot of work. Finish up with another thunderbolt

    In an attempt to stop the spores from floating over to us, let's go ahead and use twister. If things go according to plan we might even be able to sleep the enemy! If that works out, go ahead and thunderbolt before those charge boosts leave and finish up with a chill
