Beginner Battle
2v2 Singles
1 Day DQ
Challenger chooses the Arena

My first battle, no hardouts.
I've got some baby mons to train, so why not.

One ability, no items, no switch.

Arena: Viridian Forest

Thats right, it's that dim dark forest your first stumbled your way through playing Red and Blue as a kid. The field itself is about 20 feet square and otherwise surrounded by dense forest. Should a poke be pushed into the woods or a move fire into it then one of the wild inhabitants will attack the mon that unwittingly disturbed it. The inhabitants, their attacks, and chances of appearance are:

Caterpie (30%): String Shot
Weedle (30%): Poison Sting (Rank 2 Atk)
Pidgey (20%): Gust (Rank 2 SpA)
Pikachu (15%): Thundershock (Rank 2 SpA)
Pigeotto (5%): Featherdance
Ah, what a beautiful day it is here in the Viridian Forest, well as beautiful as this dim forest full of bug pokemon can get. Two trainers meet in a clearing surrounded by the foreboding woods, surprizingly, neither are bug catchers.

The first is the new trainer Xav and his only two pokemon.

Their eyes meet, and according to The Official Pokemon Trainer Rule Book, they must fight!

Xav, you send your pokemon out first but no actions. Deadfox, you send out your pokemon followed by your actions. Then you give your actions Xav.
Because no one specified, 2 Recoveries/5 Chills.
Only the contenders and I may post until the battle is completed.
 
#3
Ok, get out there Spika!

You can use your Shell Armor to make sure nothing hits you too hard.

Start off by using your Ancientpower on him. Then spray some salty water with a Brine attack and finally show off your Ancientpower again. If he tried to paralyze you with Thunder Wave then Protect against it, but not if you have already been Taunted!

Ancientpower > Brine > Ancientpower
IF Thunder Wave THEN Protect BUT not if you have been Taunted.
 
#4
Begin with an Astonish hoping for the flinch, then use Copycat and send that Brine right back for some decent damage. Finish off with Mach Punch to the face (not really a face to hit).

Astonish -> Copycat -> Mach Punch

Round 1​

The battle begins with Karma, teeming with nuetral energy, dashing over to Spika and trying to surprise him with a Astonishing loud yelp. Unfortunately for the little doll, Spika seems unnaffected and blasts Karma with Powerful ball of Ancient energy, doing some serious damage and knocking Karma back just a few feet from the grass.​

Karma, deciding to be a little Copycat, blasts Spika with the same ball of Ancient Power, albeit a bit weaker than Spika's and with a nuetral aura to it. Spika then shoots a stong stream of Briny salt water right into Karma's face, resulting in a critical hit and sending him ragdolling into the tall grass. This disturbs a wild Pidgey who summons a Gust of wind which throws Karma back into the clearing.​

Tired of being flung around like some plaything, Karma dashes over to Spika and gives him a taste of his Mach Punch. Spika takes the hit rather well and hits Karma with another Ancient Power, knocking the doll back a few feet.​

The round ends with Spika near the center of the small clearing and Karma a few feet from the grass.​

Ok, not a very good start to may career but we can still come back Karma. Start with a Psycho Cut then Pain Split to restore some HP and finish off with another Psycho Cut. If he tries to Protect use Mimic, it might come in handy later.

Psycho Cut ~ Pain Split ~ Psycho Cut
IF Protect, THEN Mimic
 
#7
Well Spika we definitely can't have him ruining all our good work with something like Pain Split, so you will need to Protect against that. Our efforts last round made sure your Brine attack is at full power now, so one of them either side of the Protect should finish him off.

Brine > Protect > Brine

Round 2​

Now ready to start dealing some damage, Karma focuses and slashes Spika with a Psycho Cut. Spika's armor prevents the slicing energy from dealing any major damage however, and in retaliation, Spika sends out another blast of Briny water, dealing some major damage as the salt seeps into Karma's wounds. The force of the blast is so great, that it pushes Karma far enough into the grass to surprise a Caterpie, who tangles up the doll with a String Shot.​

Not wanting to take any chances, Spika summons an energy shield to Protect him from anything Karma will throw at him. Karma stumbles out of the grass to see the mollusk protecting himself and decides that having a shield like that could be useful. Karma attempts to Mimic Spika, but cannot make him out behind the glowing barrier. Bummer.​

Karma, in a last ditch effort to deal some damage against his opponent, focuses his mind and hits the old fossil with another Psycho Cut. Spika takes the hit like a champ and sends one more blast of Brine at Karma, sending the now unconscious plushy right back into the grass, hitting the Caterpie and knocking it out as well.​

Let's start off with a Amnesia then fire off a Mud Bomb to try and knock Omastar into the forest. And fianlly finish with an Earthquake (I am unfamiliar with how the arena affects seismic moves so if earthquake isn't allowed use Mud Bomb again).

Round 3​

Xav calls forth his last pokemon, Trevor, a brave little Wooper eager to avenge his fallen comrade. Spika however still has quite a lot of fight left in him and will not go down easily. Cold air begins to emerge from Spika's...tentacles when the mollusk shoots an Icy Beam towards Trevor, failing to cause freezing but still dealing a good chunk of damage. Trevor tries to forget about the pain he is feeling and in his Amnesia, manages to boost up his special defense.​

Curiously, Spika begins to start eating the dirt around him. Why he would want to do that I am not entirely sure, it can't taste very good can i-Oh what's this!? Spika mixed the dirt with the water in his body to make a thick Mud, which he then proceeds to Shoot it at his opponent. The thick mud begins to stick to Trevor, making him slower than he already was. Trevor decides to show Spika the proper way to use mud as he sends a volley of Mud Bombs right back at Spika. Man, if Spika didn't have that thick shell, that would have done some serious damage, but the force of the bombs did managed to knock him back mere inches from the grass AND managed to get mud in his eyes, partially blinding him.​

The air around Spika begins to chill as he prepares another Ice Beam, but he struggles to find his target through the mud in his eyes. He just barely makes out a small figure infront of him as he fires the beam, managing to get a direct hit on Trevor, but dealing less damage than before. Trevor decides to stop playing around and slams his tail on the soft earth. A small *thack* is heard, followed by a massive Earthquake,knocking Spika into the grass and shaking the whole forest! A Pidgey flies down from one of the many shaking trees and is very upset at Trevor for disturbing it's nap. Flapping it's little wings, it summons a Gust of wind to teach Trevor a lesson before flying away. Meanwhile in the grass, Spika picks himself up and begins to make his way to the clearing when a Caterpie falls off of a shaking branch right in front of him. It it's completely freaked out state, the Caterpie Shoots String all over Spika, slowing the mollusk down considerably.​

The round ends with Trevor winded in the center of the clearing and Spika in the grass just outside the clearing not feeling too great either.​

Round 4​

Spika finally makes his way back to the clearing, still covered in that Caterpie's sticky string. He squints hard to try and make out Trevor through his blindness and fires another Ice Beam. The beam hits the poor amphibian square in the chest and he begins to remember the pain from earlier. Trevor tries to weaken his foe by launching another barrage of Mud Bombs, which hit Spika right in the face blinding him even more.​

Spika is really starting to get annoyed now, but he takes a breath and uses his tentacles to wipe most of the mud off of his face and works it into his mouth. Just like before, Spika mixes the mud with water and fires a Shot of Mud right back at his opponent. Trevor, now covered in even more mud than he was before, struggles to smack his tail on the ground to cause another Earthquake, but he manages to succeed. Here we go again, the whole forest is shaking, trees are falling over, pokemon are running for cover, and Spika gets tossed into the grass, again. One tree actually manages to fall into the clearing, barely missing Trevor. He gives a heavy sigh of relief, but that relief is short lived as a Caterpie pops out of the fallen tree and sprays Trevor with a String Shot before crawling back into the forest to find a new place to live. Spika, seriously injured from that last earthquake, tries to get up when he hears something coming towards him. This is not good, after that earthquake, he cannot survive another hit from anything. This is it, soon Spika will meet his end face to face. A figure emerges and stands before the weakened mollusk. It's...IT'S...SWEET ARCEUS IT'S A...Caterpie. The Caterpie stands infront of Spika, Shoots String all over his face, and then cheekily runs back into the woods.​

Spika's eye begins to twitch as he looks back on the battle he has just partaken in. He single handedly took out Karma, knocking him into the grass several times and never taking that much damage. Then this Wooper comes in, with his mud and his smug little face and suddenly, he is getting smacked around, being blinded by mud, and constantly getting tied up by &@$%ING CATERPIES! The once calm and quiet Spika is gone, now to be replaced with a furious fossil hell-bent on teaching that Wooper a lesson. In a blind rage, Spika spins around and fires off an Ice Beam back towards the clearing. Somehow, through all the mud and tall grass, the beam manages to find it's mark. Trevor tries to jump out of the way, but is covered in to much mud and string to get away in time and the beam hits hit tail which becomes frozen solid. Knowing that Spika is somewhere in the grass, Trevor spits out another volley of Mud Bombs in an attempt to finish the job. One of the bombs hits home and knocks Spika over. Knowing that Trevor can't possibly hold out for much longer, he slips into unconsciousness, satisfied.​

The round ends with Trevor breathing heavily next to the fallen tree that now fills half of the clearing.​

Round 5​

With half of the forest in ruin, the final two pokemon stand against eachother. Deadfox's Solosis, Psycha, is well rested and ready to finish this, while Xav's Wooper, Trevor, is cold, tired, and cannot take another powerful blow. Psycha begins to gather energy from the war-torn forest around her, and just like a scene out of DBZ, a Ball of Energy begins to form, a ball made from the Earth's energy. Trevor can only stand there helpless as he watches Psycha fire the glowing orb right at him as I yell SPIRIT BOMB! (I'm sorry I couldn't help myself.) The energy ball makes contact and explodes in a flash of green light, knocking Trevor out and sending him flying. Xav calls back his unconscious amphibian, congratulating him on doing so well for his first battle.​
