Shinxe glows with energy, before her body expands, evolving into Luxio! Incubus decides to pick on someone smaller, and aims another Hidden Power Grass at Robolem. It impacts the Substitute, which falls apart in a schlooooorp, as the last shadowy clone fades away as well. Christopher takes a leaf from Shinxe’s book and grows as well, evolving into Metang! It suddenly looks a lot more threatening. Robolem, barely hanging on and out of shields, Double Teams, creating four (4) more clones to protect him from his bloodthirsty enemies.
Shinxe grins with more teeth than she used to have, and uses them to Bite Incubus. Incubus shakes her off and aims a Hidden Power Ice at the nearest clone...which was actually the real Robolem. The other clones wink out of existence, as Christopher Zen Headbutts the true Robolem. Barely still standing, each of the three remaining Robolem Shadow Punch Incubus, KO’ing him with the power of teamwork! D’awww.
Shinxe, unhappy she couldn’t claim the kill, Bites Christopher, her sharp teeth surprisingly sinking into the metal instead of scratching. Christopher, angry, Zen Headbutts Robolem. Being the real one, and not a clone, he is KO’d. Drat.
Litwick [Hecate] (F) Nature: Modest (+SpA, -Atk) Type: Ghost/Fire Ghost: Ghost STAB; brief intangibility that nullifies Normal and Fighting-type attacks, Pain Split, Psychic, Sucker Punch, Telekinesis, Trick, and Will-o-Wisp have Energy Cost reduced by one (1). (Gengar line and pure Ghosts only: moving through walls.) Fire: Fire STAB; immune to burn, 50% reduction in freeze chance, emit a low glow in dark places, takes additional damage if active open flames are exposed to a water attack. Solarbeam has Energy Cost reduced by one (1).
Flash Fire: (Innate) This Pokemon thrives in high temperatures, and takes the energy of any fire attack, nullifies the damage, and uses the additional power to boost its own fire attack’s Base Attack Power by two (2).
Flame Body: (Innate) This Pokemon’s external temperature is kept at such a high level that any contact attack used on this Pokemon has a 30% chance of burning the opponent.
Shadow Tag (DW): (Innate) Upon entry into battle, this Pokemon’s Shadow expands across the arena and dissipates, forcing opposing Pokemon to stay within 10 meters of this Pokemon. The Shadow entirely negates the ability to switch for every Pokemon except those who also have Shadow Tag.
Shinxe starts her last stand with a Toxic, spraying a thick, opaque mist at the fresh Hecate and inflicting intense poison on the poor soul-sucking candleghost. Christopher, happy to be left alone for now, hardens his body with Iron Defense, as an angry Hecate lets fly a Toxic of his own, inflicting revenge-intense poison as well!
Crackling with electricity, Shinxe releases a Thunder Wave, paralyzing Hecate with a debilitating pulse. Christopher retaliates with a Zen Headbutt, slamming his recently hardened head against Shinxe with psychically-enhanced will. Hecate just floats, stationary, in the air, fully paralyzed!
Shinxe tries to aim a second Thunder Wave at Christopher, but runs out of energy! Shinxe is KO'd!
The Pokemon infuses its skin with iron, boosting its defense by two (2) stages and preventing knockback while active. If an opponent strikes with a contact attack the action the Pokemon uses Iron Defense, they will receive 1/4th of the damage it did back in recoil and be knocked back accordingly. Iron Defense will remove the corrosive effects of Acid and Acid Spray on Steel-types.
Sparklez's body becomes enreathed in flames, and she rushes towards Christopher and slams it with a Flame Charge, raising her speed! Christopher makes a mechanical grunt, infusing its body with even more metal to create an even more solid Iron Defense, as Hecate returns fire with a pale stream of Toxic gas, inflicting deadly poison!
Sparklez wheels around, the fire on her body whirling around into a cyclone, she gallops towards Christopher again and tackles it with a blazing Flame Wheel. Christopher takes the hit unflinchingly with the shield of metal, and counters with a Zen Headbutt. Hecate, her mission of poisoning the opponent accomplished, slams her with a powerful Hex.
Sparklez stumbles from the blow, but stays on her feet, smashing Christopher with another Flame Charge, raising her speed! Christopher draws even more iron into his body, increasing the power of his Iron Defense, as Hecate fires off another Hex.
Sparklez changes targets, rushing towards Hecate and slamming her with a Wild Charge. Christopher, happy to not be on the receiving end of a cornered bloodthirsty lightning fire pony, Zen Headbutts it again. Hecate, unhappy to be on the receiving end of a cornered bloodthirsty lightning fire pony, makes herself small with Minimize, praying the gods of hax will save her from said corned bl...yeah.
Does it work?
*throws 10,000-sided die*
*gets a 3*
Nah. Sparklez tramples her beneath another Wild Charge. Christopher uses the Excel spreadsheet lodged in between its two brains to calculate if it could defeat Sparklez with a Zen Headbutt. And deduces no, it can't. So it chills like a wimp instead. Hecate, underfoot and none too pleased, blasts another Hex at her, knocking her off her four diamond-hard hooves in some form of karma or another.
She climbs unsteadily upright, still in the fight, and Wild Charges Hecate. Christopher doesn't need his two brains and Excel spreadsheet to know: THE TIME IS RIGHT. He swoops towards Sparklez and KOs her with a final Zen Headbutt!
