And Texas sends out to the field his last pokemon: Poseidon the Kingdra. And it now lays on his back the responsability to bring home victory against Dogfish's Nimbus the Cyclohm and Short Fuse the Electivire.
Speaking of them, the Gym Leader decides to switch both as Short Fuse is called back, while Nimbus is sent out to the field!
And it comes with a blast as it begins a massive assault at the newcomer as Nimbus attacks with Dragon Pulse followed by Draco Meteor.
Poseidon, however, was prepared for it and begins to Bide to Hold all that energy and then release it against Nimbus, defeating it easily.
With a cost. A massive energy cost.
AND NOW THE BATTLE IS 1 VS 1. KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED AS THE NEXT ROUND PROMISES TO BE TENSE!
Cyclohm: Dragon Pulse: (9+3+3+2)*1.5= 25.5 damage for 6 energy
Crit: 3 (no)
Cyclohm: Draco Meteor: (14+3+3+2)*1.5= 33 damage for 9 energy
Hit: 60 (yes)
Crit: 10 (no)
Kingdra: Release: (25.5+33)*1.75= 102.37 damage for 6+(102.37/2)= 57.18 energy
If Endure and endure has not already been used this round, Whirlpool that action and push back
If Thunder Wave (including combo) and you are not slower and you are not Taunted and you do not already have a substitute, Substitute (15) that action
Good luck dogfish, and very gg either way this shakes out. Been one hell of a match.
Poseidon attacks Short Fuse with Brine that goes deep into the Electivire's wounds and, powered by the Rain, deals quite some damage. Short Fuse counters with a Dual Chop of Draconic power, with an extra boost thanks to the Expert Belt.
On the following turn, the Kingdra was ready to finish the match with a swift Hydro Pump, but Short Fuse was ready for it and it combines Quick Attack and Dual Chop to quickly strike Kingdra with two chops of great strenght ending the match. Kingdra fainted!
The Gym Leader wins!
Kingdra: Brine: 13+3+3+1.5 = 20.5 damage for 7 energy
Electivire: Dual Chop: (4*2+2+3)*1.5= 19.5 damage for 6 energy
Hit: 20 (yes)
Crit: 8, 8 (no no)
Electivire: COMBO (Quick Attack + Dual Chop): (2+4*2+2+3)*1.5= 22.5 damage for 21 energy
NOTE: Quick Attack mentions a strike. Strike is "To hit sharply, as with the hand, the fist, or a weapon", so I can see it being hit with the hand creating a chop. Hence allowing this.
Hit: 68 (yes)
Crit: 11, 10 (no no)
Texas Cloverleaf is out of useable pokemon!
