Leader Gerard
Metagross (Kirot) {O}

Nature:Careful (+1 SpD, -1 SpA)
Type: Steel / Psychic


  • Steel: Steel STAB; Immune to Sandstorm, highly insusceptible to toxic attacks, but can be corroded specifically by Acid and Acid Spray, can be magnetized. Superior senses in high-metal environments like construction sites or factories.

  • 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.

Abilities:


  • Clear Body: (Innate)
This Pokemon’s body structure makes it immune to status lowering moves used by opponents. (e.g. Intimidate, Growl, Screech etc.)
  • Light Metal: (Innate)
The Pokemon's body is made of a lightweight but extremely strong alloy. It weighs half as much as other members of the species, but is equally sturdy. The Pokemon executes weak attacks much more effectively, adding +1 priority to all their attacks with 6 or less Base Attack Power (after other ability adjustments). Priority is applied to the summed Base Attack Power of a multi-hit move (e.g. Double Kick has priority at 6 BAP, Skill Link Bullet Seed doesn't at 15 BAP.)

I have been trying over and over to get the best course of action or the situation in hand, I should probably be more prepared in order to battle fellow psychics though. For the moment I can't think of a better duo that this two guys, Wilde, Kirot, I trust you can deal some heavy damage to the opposing team without being to damaged in return, just make sure to have your eyes open to Celeste, her tricks are what worries me the most in this team, not to say that Shield doesn't have a couple of them herself, so be careful.


Expert Belt & Focus Sash

Wilde: Signal Beam (Celeste) ~ Rock Slide ~ Signal Beam (Celeste)
* If Celeste uses Will-o-Wisp & you're Not taunted then use Encore (Celeste) and push actions

* If Celeste uses Taunt against You & she's Not already taunted & you're Not taunted then use Magic Coat and push actions

Kirot
:
Iron Head (Shield) ~ Meteor Mash (Shield) ~ Iron Head (Shield)
* If Shield has clones up when you target him then use Rock Slide and push actions
* If Shield is under the effect of a Protective move then use Meteor Mash (Celeste) and push actions

Sorry this took me a while. Just scheming how to handle it best.

[box]ROUND ONE

We're here at the Moon Cave, where it seems as if the resident Psychic-type Gym Leader has taken special care of it to grant as many different bonuses to his Pokemon as possible. We've got yet another challenger, Rediamond, waiting to fight today. The Leader has an as-of-yet undefeated streak, but those are bound to fall someday... Anyway, the Leader sends out his trusty Wilde the Gallade, paired with an equally reliable Kirot the Metagross, which may or may not be related to karats. Meanwhile, Rediamond chooses to release Celeste the Gardevoir and Shield into the fray. They all look pretty strong, so this is certain to be a good fight.

Shield starts by giving Celeste a quick Helping Hand, which will probably give her next attack a significant added amount of oomph. Meanwhile, Kirot is off on a futile attempt to flinch Shield with a quick Iron Head attack, which does barely any damage due to Shield's ridiculously high defensive capabilities. Wilde then fires off a bunch of buggy signals that ricochet off of the walls of the cave, forming a Signal Beam as they slam into Celeste. After a brief moment's pause, Celeste unleashes the attack she's been storing on: a massive Hyper Hidden Power attack that sends Kirot reeling.

While Celeste recuperates a bit from her exertions, Kirot batters Shield with a Meteor Mash that seems oddly accurate, and Wilde lets a Rock Slide loose in the interior of the cave. Shield attempts to enchant some rocks into sentry duty, but the sudden slamming of stones shocks Shield straight to the core, leaving him unable to do anything!

Just slightly miffed, Shield decides that his previous efforts were more rewarding, and gives another Helping Hand to Celeste. Celeste takes the help gratefully and uses it to launch an empowered Shadow Ball at Kirot, piling on even more damage. The Leader's Pokemon just continue to attack at their respective targets, although the damage they're dealing seems to be racking up as well.[/box]

I have never done this and as much as it kills me to sacrifice Metagross, this gives us an amazing chance to come back, I hope you can forgive me old friend, but well, the fact I dislike combinations doesn't mean I don't know how to use them... grrr... I wish I had Selfdestruct instead...

[box]ROUND TWO

Celeste and Shield attack relentlessly at Kirot, but are dismayed when their attacks seemingly bounce off an energy shield. Smirking just a bit, Wilde quickly performs some psychic magic and swaps his abilities with Celeste's, in preparation for a rather frightening strategy.

Perhaps realizing that attacking Kirot isn't the best strategy after all, Celeste quickly changes targets and flings Wilde into the cave wall with her mental powers. He isn't too happy about this and reaches into her mind, locking out one of her attacks temporarily. Kirot simply chills, however, while Shield erupts the ground beneath it, dealing a pittance of damage.

The Gym Leader's plan finally unfolds, as Wilde gives Kirot a big helping hand that nearly sends himself to exhaustion. Rediamond's team continues to attack away, but it's no match for the absolutely absurd damage that is dealt when Kirot sends bits of itself flying in all directions, while Wilde just stands and avoids all the debris. Celeste is completely knocked out by the attack, while Shield is only barely standing. Can Rediamond come back after this, or is it already too late?[/box]

[box]ROUND THREE

Shield pumps himself with adrenaline while Flare throws up a protective barrier, nullifying Yue's attempt to poison the Shuckle.

After that, however, it's a straight-on damage race, with Flare firing off two jets of fire in rapid succession at Wilde. Yue responds in kind, however, buffeting both of Rediamond's Pokemon, and Wilde joins in by throwing a bunch of rocks. Fortunately for Rediamond, Shield is able to hang on long enough to help Flare out with her attacks, since his own offense is quite pitiable.

This was a pretty even round in terms of damage, but ratio-wise the gym leader got another leg up; it also doesn't help that Shield is about to keel over and die...[/box]

Glancing around, the Bug-type Gym Leader realizes that he really should be spending his time in some strange magical cave with powers that rival gravity wells. He flees the cave (and all of ASB as well), never to be seen again. Leader Gerard smiles smugly and recalls his Pokemon, glad to have defended his badge valiantly and successfully, albeit not in the expected fashion...[/box]
