    BEGIN ROUND NINE

    Neville begins the round shaking wildly about in a Taunting manner. Astraea is way ahead of him, though, and starts to use energy to create a wall...but its arms stiffen, and Astraea becomes fully paralyzed! The Taunt goes right through, and Astraea falls for the Taunt! The paralysis on Astraea, however, has been eliminated thanks to Natural Cure!

    Neville decides to play a little defensively, and Evasive Digs underground to prevent some damage. Astraea prepares to attack with a massive Hydro Pump, but the move doesn't hit the underground Neville, so the move missed!

    Nevile goes on the offensive, summoning waves of dark energy around him. They form a Dark Pulse and slam into Astraea for great damage! Astraea tries to calm herself for more energy, but cannot seem to get the image of a taunting Neville out of its head, so the move failed!

    END ROUND NINE

    That was beyond haxy, but I guess I'll have to live with the guilt. As tempting as it would be to just Dark Pulse three times, let's play with a little more strategy than that. Open with Dig to avoid whatever attack it might use. Surface and do a little damage, then take advantage of its lack of Reflect with Crunch. Close with a Dark Pulse.

    Summary:
    Dig -> Crunch -> Dark Pulse

    I can't even express how I feel about that round. I think that's ggs Dummy, but I guess we'll see what we can do. Just Tackle => Water Gun => Tackle. Bad luck.

    BEGIN ROUND TEN

    Astraea, having shaken off its paralysis, now strikes first. Low on energy, it slams into its opponent with a weak Tackle. Neville just laughs, digs underground, and strikes the starfish for reduced damage.

    Astraea fires off a weak pulse of water with a Water Gun...but it actually hits for surprisingly good damage! Colossoil approaches its opponent and takes a Crunch right into its jewel, nailing it for major damage!

    Astraea once again slams into Neville with a Tackle, while Neville responds with a menacing Dark Pulse. Looks like Neville is going to win this one, but Astraea is left standing. Will it end next round? We will see!

    Mostly gg, Atheno. Round 9 was terribly haxy (and you lost the coin toss, putting you at a great disadvantage), but most of the rest of the match was pretty good.

    Summary:
    Sucker Punch

    This is it, folks! Astraea prepares one last Water Gun attack...but is immediately met with a flurry of Sucker Punches! Astraea spins around, and falls down. ASTRAEA FAINTS!
