Kaxtar's team:

Gallade [Demi Gravidon] (Male)
Nature: Jolly (+15% Sped, +10% Accuracy, -1 Rank Special Attack)

Psychic: Psychic STAB; less susceptible to blinding, more susceptible to sound-based assaults as far as locking on with Psychic attacks, can lift and throw opponents with Psychic attacks regardless of weight difference. Psychic-type attacks are not godlike and cannot be used as a catchall for Disabling, Binding, and redirecting opposing attacks.

Fighting: Fighting STAB; ignore weight restrictions of throwing/grappling moves. Superior reaction time in close quarters.

HP: 100
Atk: Rank 5
Def: Rank 3
SpA: Rank 2 (-)
SpD: Rank 4
Spe: 92 (+)

EC: 9/9
MC: 0
DC: 5/5

Steadfast: (Innate) If this Pokemon is flinched, it becomes aware of the speed difference and increases speed by one (1) stage to make up the difference. This speed boost is maintained at the end of each round.

Justified (DW-UNLOCKED): (Innate) This Pokemon's body reacts to dark energy, invigorating its passions. When hit by a Dark-type move, the Pokemon's attack will increase one (1) stage. A boost gained this way by an opponent's attack will be maintained at the end of each round. Self-targeted attacks do not maintain boosts.

Demi Gravidon the Gallade and Mia the Dusknoir are sent out, ready to battle it to the end. The gallade is first to move, Taunting his opponent in order to prevent non-attacking moves. Meanwhile Mia disappears into the darkness and assaults with a Shadow Punch for super effective damage.

Gallade didn't like the power of that move, and so he Will-o-Wisps, easily hitting his darget due to his accuracy boosting nature and Mia's decreased evasion. The Dusknoir tries to protect, but the angered thoughts in her head prevents her from issuing her attack.

Mia charges forward and rams the ground, causing a large Earthquake. However, because of her burn, the damage doesn't do that much damage. Meanwhile, the Gallade hits hard with a boosted Night Slash, dealing decent damage.

Gallade:
Taunt: 14 Energy
Will-o-Wisp: 11 Energy
Night Slash: 15 Damage, 9 Energy

Adding insult to injury, Demi Gravidon Disables Mia's shadowpunch, removing her bets weapon in this battle. The ghost decides to rely on a Shadow Ball instead, attacking off a lower attack stat. Luckily for her, the ghostly ball of energy manages to lower her opponent's special defense.

The Gallade unleashes another Night Slash for some nice damage, while Mia releases a Hex for some additional damage. Gallade then decides to add one more burden on his opponent, confusing his opponent with a Confuse ray. However, not only does The Dusknoir overcome the confusion, but she also gets a critical hit on the shadowball!

Looks like Demi Gravidon is starting to look exhausted and battered, how much longer can it hold up?

Waitwhat.

... I mean, just as planned, that totally worked perfectly! <.<

Um... Shadow Ball >>> Shadow Ball >>> Shadow Ball
If Torment is used, replace remaining actions with Earthquake >>> Night Shade >>> Shadow Sneak.

Ie, if Torment is used A1, use the full set of actions, A2, Earthquake >>> Night Shade, A3, Earthquake.

The Gallade lunges forward, Hitting with a powerful Night Slash. Mia takes the hit and retaliates, firing off a Shadowball despite her confusion!
As a last ditch effort, Gallade puts all of his effort in a NightSlash + NightSlash Combo! Unfortunatelly for him, Mia still stands while he collapses out of exhaustion.

Yay! I turned around his trickiness and strategy through the power of hax!

Sorry Kaxtar, but that's the way the RNG rolls I guess. You fought extremely well anyway, I hope to fight you again soon. With less hax. rewindman, thanks for reffing. This is probably like the fifth one you've done for me now?
