    Team Albinoloon:
    Lofty the Drifloon (open)

    [​IMG]*****
    Drifloon (Lofty[M])
    Personality: Lofty is quite... arbitrairy in his actions. He will hardly use the same move twice, unless forced into a tricky situation suach as being taunted. Despite his cluelessness, Lofty is actually one of 3 rare Malumaer heteros. Most drifloon are born in their place of origin; the underwold. However, these heteros are born in the overworld through evaporation of a volatile chemicals. Although rare, their lack of their reflective pigment, which normal drifloon recieve, slowly burns their thin bodies. This is the result of their rarity. This particular one sank down to earth as soon as it was born. When Albinoloon was traveling beside a polluted sea to search for an arena, he noticed a tug on a particular doll-shaped keychain on his backpack. As he turned around, he noticed it was this mysetrious drifloon, whom came to be known as Lofty, for the way he seemed to float aimlessly. When training, he realized that Lofty had an extremely vast and photographic memory. Sadly, however, Lofty should not have a long life, because of his genetical ailment. Albinoloon knows this and is currently pondering on a solution to this grim problem. he plans to make Lofty the star pokemon on his team.
    Nature: Quiet (+SAtk; Base Spd/1.15; -15% evasion)
    Type: Ghost/Flying
    Ghost: Ghost STAB; brief intangibility that nullifies Normal and Fighting-type attacks. Can move through walls for a brief period of time but must remain in motion. Superior senses in low light and inside dark buildings. Have no vision reduction in hazes.
    Flying: Flying STAB; immunity to Ground attacks outside extremely odd circumstances even for ground-based flying Pokemon. Enhanced aerial mobility. Superior senses in open air arenas.

    Abilities:
    Aftermath: (Innate) If this Pokemon uses Selfdestruct or Explosion, the attack has ten (10) more Base Attack Power and five (5) more Energy Cost to execute.
    Unburden: (Innate) This Pokemon is incredibly possessive. If it uses or loses an item in battle its rage swells and its speed doubles (x2) until it receives another item.
    Flare Boost (DW LOCKED): (Innate) This Pokemon's Body can harness the heat from a burn into internal energy, fueling its mental capabilities. When Burned, the Pokemon's special attacks have two (2) more Base Attack Power.

    I'm only at 20 Moves, so I don't apply for two substitutions. Anyways, Scraggy will use it's Shed Skin ability.

    ... Well, it makes a change from the soup. Then again, with this cold, maybe the soup would be better for me... Yeesh. Lofty, the rare white Drifloon commences this epic match with an eerie blue flame, but in his enthusiasm, ends up overshooting his target! Lucky early break for Kaxtar and Scraggy, who responds by crushing the balloon between its jaws, and managing to pierce through his defenses. Future attacks should do more damage now... It seems to be a bad first round for Albinoloon and Lofty here, but can they turn it around? Maybe so, as Lofty triple-flips in midair, and bashes Scraggy with all his might. Too bad he's taken on that red aura that we all know means only one thing... Counter! And that was a big move that just got countered, right back in Lofty's face... Ouch. He sends a weak jolt of electricity at his foe, intending to slow him down and prevent him moving, but it doesn't stop him crunching down on poor Lofty's face again.

    Sensing his time is near, Lofty goes all out with some more fancypants Acrobatics, but they don't stop Scraggy from striking back at him in revenge for such a powerful blow. Lofty hangs on with two points of health to spare, allowing him to go out with a gigantic KABOOM. He inflates himself to ridiculous proportions, until he bursts, causing a critical hit, and a shockwave felt round the globe due to his Aftermath. Whoops, there goes the new "Rise" sculpture in Belfast... Well, no big loss (lol cultural jokes nobody will get).

    GAME!

    Great reffs, Sos! Flavorful yet to the point! Also, good game, Kaxtar! Although I'd like another match in a larger scale soon.

    Oh darn. I totally didn't see this. Counter couldn't have affected Drifloon but I guess it's too late...
