    Lets do it Azure!

    O.k being a web based arena Wrap yourself around some of the threads of the arena so you can stay stable and thus cannot be knocked off. Then its time for a good old fashioned Thunder Wave to cripple Buggo and hopefully paralyses it enough so it will fall off the web. Lastly I want you to go with a Fire Blast, aiming it at the area where Buggo is standing to weaken the spider Web threads around it.

    Wrap, Thunder Wave and then use Fire Blast

    Ok, Buggo, we're against a dragon. Who has Fire Blast. GG. Nah, we can take him. Start off by using String Shot to pull yourself across the web, away from Azure, then use another String Shot to latch onto him, and pull with all your might. End the round by using String Shot to patch up the web where Azure's Fire Blast hits.

    String Shot >>> String Shot >>> String Shot

    Round 1

    As the battle starts, Azure Wraps himself around the web, gaining a firm grip on the silken thread. Buggo, trying to get a better position onto the battlefield, use String Shot to throw himself out of melee.

    In order to thwart Azure's defenses, the Caterpie conjures another silken rope and catches the dragon snake without fail. The Dratini tries to catch Buggo offguard by paralyzing him with a feeble jolt of lightning, but the Caterpie manages to work through the effects of the Thunder Wave and pulls him off the web with String Shot.

    While falling, Azure desperately aim a Fire Blast at his opponent. The deflagration his incredibly huge, and the fire spreads quickly to the surrounding silk while Buggo sorely falls. The Caterpie manages to patch some parts of the web with String Shot before hitting the floor shortly after his opponent.

    Well, that wasn't entirely according to plan. Well, Buggo, get your breath back, and latch onto him with String Shot. Then pull yourself towards him. Then Bug Bite him.

    String Shot >>> Bug Bite

    o.k Azure we are on a roll

    So. as Buggo tries to string shot you blast him backwards with a Twister. Then, now that there has been some distance between you finish up with a Fire Blast

    Guys, which part of "skips next action" is so obscure to you? Please repost your issues with 2 actions instead of 3. First Son_of_Shadoo, then Giganinja.

    The two Pokémon wander around dazed for a few moments, still confused by the hit on the ground. Then, Azure manages to come to its senses and summons a vicious Twister around the green worm. Buggo recovers soon enough for seeing himself being enveloped by the winds. Despite their strength, however, the Caterpie manages to throw a String Shot at his opponent, pulling the Dratini towards him.

    While desperately attempting to oppose to the pull, Azure conjures a seething star of flames and blasts it on the Caterpie. The Fire Blast scorches Buggo fiercely, tearing through his soft chitin. The green worm, however, manages to cover the remaining distance and punctures the Dratini with a powerful Bug Bite. The hit is impressive, and it results in a critical hit.

    o.k Azure lets finish this!

    Fire Blast him, then, when he goes in close for a Bug Bite smash him backwards with a powerful Dragon Tail. Finish up with an Extreme Speed

    Fire Blast ~ Dragon Tail ~ Extreme Speed

    Well, Buggo, we did our best, I have no regrets. But hey, we can take him. Cover him head to tail in String Shot, which should impede him a bit. Then use Bug Bite, since well, what other options do we have?

    String Shot >>> Bug Bite >>> Bug Bite

    Azure shrugs off the last hit and throws a fiery Fire Blast at her opponent. Buggo writhes in agony as the flames consume him, but he still is not beaten. With his tiny mouth, he conjures a String Shot to envelop his opponent into a shroud of silk.

    While the Dratini attempts to free himself from the impedement, Buggo dashes forward and bites his foe with a Bug Bite. The hit incidentally helps Azure getting free and slamming the worm with Dragon Tail. Buggo flies away and hit the floor some foots away, exhausted by the wounds and fainted.
