Let's see if I can finish this match before Sudden Death kicks in. HP: 61 Energy: 77 Naughty (+Atk, -SpD) HP: 75 Energy: 87 Modest (+SpA, -Atk) +1 Attack Poisoned (3 actions due to Natural Cure) Confused (2 actions) Taunt (6 actions) What an intense round that was! Both of our contestants have taken quite some damage! Fuma Shuriken's health and energy are above that of Mr. Bubbles, but the Staryu is afflicted with Taunt and two status conditions. How will this play out in this round? Mr. Bubbles finds himself going first this time! He charges at FS with blistering speed, and his hands start to glow poisonously purple. Mr. Bubbles then leaps into the air and behind Fuma Shuriken, dealing several quick Poison Jab at the back of the starfish. The final jab sends Fuma a-flying 20 feet across the arena. The attack, unfortunately to the Toxicroak, seems to have lowered Fuma's confusion level, but Fuma is still dizzy and smashes into a rock as it tries to use Psychic on the Toxicroak. Bang! Fuma Shuriken moves first this time. It has completely snapped out of confusion and zaps Mr. Bubble silly with a Thunderbolt emmiting from all five of its points. The poison is slowly starting to take its toll on it, though. Hang on a minute- poison! Mr. Bubble immediately gets an idea. He opens his mouth wide and rapidly spits out blobs of poison out in the air, which starts to rain on Fuma. The vemon severly shocks Fuma because its immune system is already failing due to the previous poisoning. Fuma is still wincing from the venom, so Mr. Bubble moves first! He puffs up his chest and shows off his amazing arm muscles. Man, this boy has swagger! Fuma, being a starfish and whatnot, cannot even come close to aquiring such a body, which sends him in a rage and confuses him again. Luckily for it, though, Fuma manages to shrug it off and cover Mr. Bubbles in a Psychic aura before flinging him away. In addition, the poison from its body dissapears due to Natural Cure. raw numbers (Move your mouse to reveal the content) raw numbers (open) raw numbers (close) Mr. Bubbles: Poison Jab on Fuma Shuriken.
