The final round of the tournament is taking place right in front of the city, in front of southern entrance through the outer wall. The new cobblestone road is underfoot. It is a relatively mild day for mid-summer; still quite warm, of course, but with a pleasant cool breeze. It has begun to drizzle ever so slightly; it will begin to pick up into a steady but light rain as the battle starts. The sun still shines strongly through the thin layer of rain clouds, illuminating and warming the battlers and their humans. A decent-sized crowd has gathered on both sides of the road to watch the culmination of this event; they are eager for a good, competitive battle. Feel free to use the environment to your advantage! Good luck, combatants! The deadline for this round is July 6th.

FINAL ROUND

Victor was glad to be in the final round of the competition. He never thought he'd make it this far and honestly he felt like his luck was going to run out soon. The trainer thought about which pokemon he was going to use today and only one came to mind. It was only misfortunate that it was raining out. He worried that it may hinder his pokemon's abilities.

The pokemon he would be using today was his salandit, Spectre. The black lizard was used to the dampness of the rain forest so the water shouldn't be too much of a problem but the embers he would possibly use could be weakened. He only hoped he wasn't going up against a water pokemon. That would spell trouble for him.

Walking to the battleground, Victor waited for his opponent. Whoever they were, he hoped they were as skillful as the last. They must have been to have made it as far as him. Though he honestly felt like he was just here by luck. The trainer looked out toward the spectators. There sure were a lot of people watching for this one and there was a lot of pressure on him. He wanted to win, not only for the prize but for the possibility for some recognition. It could possibly lead to some legit work.

Cynth
v.
Victor
The drizzle present today was so similar to the drizzle present for the last year's finale battle, Cynth was a little suspicious that perhaps the event's organizers had a few Marill or other water-types hidden somewhere, using Rain Dance. Not only that, but the drizzle seemed so localized- it hadn't seemed to be raining deeper in the city when she left her home. She pushed the thoughts aside, though- she knew that if there were actually Pokemon using Rain Dance, the rainfall would probably be heavier. She only wished that she'd had time to finish Trick's training on Sunny Day. Ah, well.

She'd promised the Ponyta that he would get his turn in this tournament, and, being the third and final round of the tournament, it was now or never. Luckily, having grown up in the Plains (and having survived the much wetter environment that was the western Great Forest, even though he had hated it) he was accustomed to the moisture. Still, it was likely that the rain could have a negative impact on his fire abilities. But there was no turning back now, and since Trick hadn't mastered Sunny Day yet, there was nothing they could do about it.

They approached from the direction of the city, the cripple and her pony. Her opponent was already there, as seemed to be the trend for all of her battles, though her opponent's Pokemon wasn't visible. She felt Trick staring over her shoulder as he followed directly behind her, his eyes also already searching for his opponent, his breath hot on the back of her neck and her shoulder.

"Hi, Victor!" It had taken her a moment to figure out why the figure she was approaching looked so familiar, and another moment to remember what his name had been. How fun that they could meet up again! And this time, they could meet some of each other's Pokemon. "Good to see you. This is Trick, my Ponyta."

The fiery equine stepped out from behind Cynth onto the main area of the battlefield, his hooves tapping on the brick. He was more than ready for this. He stared his silent challenge at the other human, waiting for his opponent to be revealed.

Spectre

user posted image

Lv. 12 | M | HP:100% | EN: 62%

Spectre used Fake out(-8%) [Can only be used turn 1. Causes flinch.]

Spectre used Poison Gas. (-13%+-2) [90% chance to poison. No damage dealt]

Victor turned quickly at the sound of his name. The voice was so familiar but he couldn’t recall many people that knew his him well enough. Spotting the girl coming his way, he immediately remembered. It was one of the people he had met during an event in Ashfield. She was pretty kind and enthusiastic and Victor was being the worst person to talk to on a date.

“Oh, Cynth was it?” he asked. He hoped that was her name. Part of him wanted to say Cynthia but that didn’t seem correct. She would quickly introduce her pokemon from behind her. It was a horse with flames burning from various parts of its body. It was actually pretty cool but Victor would never say that out loud. He just raised a brow at the ponyta named Trick. “Hey, good to see you too,” he greeted the woman. “Trick." He said as he nodded his head at the ponyta

The trainer decided he should introduce his as well. Pulling out the salandit’s ball, Victor summoned Spectre who materialized onto the field on his back. The lizard blinked slowly as he woke. Spotting the girl and horse in front of him, he quickly flipped over and climbed up Victor’s body and onto his shoulder. Spectre appeared excited to see the new strangers. He thought Trick was a beautiful looking fire type. It was a shame he wasn’t a female or he’d ask them to be his mate.

“Well I guess we should get started,” the trainer suggested. Victor stepped back leaving Spectre on the battlefield. Whenever Cynth and Trick would be ready, he’d send the lizard direct the lizard into combat. “Spectre, Fake out combo!” he commanded. The lizard sparked up at the sound of his trainer’s voice and began dashing forward.

The salandit aimed to use his smaller size to an advantage if he could. Getting under the ponyta, he’d zigzag in an effort to confuse him before landing a blow with his tail. Once hit, The lizard would spew a poisonous gas to Trick’s face. Whether or not that was successful, he’d retreat backward to give him room to react to the horse’s move.

Cynth
v.
Victor
Cynth was pleased that Victor seemed to remember her, but she pushed aside her desire to chat and catch up in order to begin what they were here to do. "Alright, Trick.," she began as she eyed the unfamiliar Pokemon that they were going up against, "Let's start out simple. Tail whip, and tackle."

She spoke as she took a couple of steps backward so that the Pokemon could have the field. As best as she could, she ignored the sensation of countless eyes watching her and her Pokemon.

Trick was much better at ignoring the people around him. But what he was not good at, was maintaining his cool when the little slithering creature who he knew was not a snake but looked way too similar to a snake for his own comfort, dashed toward him in a back-and-forth pattern... like a snake would when it slithered.

He wasn't proud of the screech that he almost successfully muffled, nor the series of arched-back, sideways bunny hops that accompanied the strangled noise. He at least managed to (mostly inadvertently) dodge the creature's initial attack.

But as he recovered from his moment of panic, catching his breathe and trying to locate the lizard again, he inhaled the fog of poisonous gasses deeply. He shuddered at the nauseous sensation that coursed through him, but pushed past it as he tried to get his head back in the game after that horrifyingly embarrassing show. And it certainly didn't help that he could hear his human over there, tentatively asking if he was alright.

He ignored the question, and instead chose to act on her previous instructions. The lizard had retreated a fair distance away, so Trick felt safe to turn in a tight circle, flicking his tail to and fro before the creature. As he finished his turn, he stretched out into a leap at the Salandit, once again reminding himself that this was not a snake and also that it would be inappropriate for him to kill it just because it looked like one of those disgusting, macabre creatures.

Cynth had absolutely no idea what was going on with Trick. They hadn't ever encountered a snake before, so she had no idea that her pony (and most equines) had an instinctive and often overwhelming fear of them, so she was left to her worry and confusion on the other side of the field.

Spectre

user posted image

Lv. 12 | M | HP:78% | EN: 44% | -1 DEF

Spectre used Scratch x2 (-16% + -2%)

Victor tensed up when the horse managed to dodge the fake out. He was relying on that but the poison was his back up. Fine the ponyta would dodge but now it had to deal with the nauseating effects until the end of the fight. He only hoped Cynth wouldn't allow the poison to drain the horse completely.

While the salandit was backing away, he couldn't have expected the horses tail to come waving at him. It was made of fire, why should the lizard be afraid of it? Still, the unexpected action cause Spectre to flinch, leaving him wide open for an attack. Surely enough Trick charged in for a tackle which knocked back the salandit.

"Catch yourself!" Victor called out to the lizard. As he flipped through the air Spectre was able to position himself so he could land on his feet. Though he still slide backward from the force that came from the ponyta. It was harder for the lizard to grip onto the ground with the rain but at least he eventually came to a halt.

Victor smirked as he looked over to Trick and Cynth. "Yeah, this is going to be good," he said to himself. Pointing forward he prepared to give a command. The lizard was waiting before doing so. He typically didn't know what to do until then. "Alright, Spectre, use scratch on its hind legs!"

The black lizard hopped forward in zigzags, trying to confuse the horse. He aimed to come around the side of him and claw at one of his back legs. Eventually he'd come around the other side and scratch the other.

Cynth
v.
Victor
(Psst... Tail whip lowers defense, not attack. :))

Cynth watched as Trick returned to their side of the field after successfully landing his attack; she examined him carefully for signs of injury or exhaustion. Although she hadn't heard the attack called out, she had seen the purple gas that the lizard had released, and she had what she thought was a decent guess as to what had happened.

And that meant that they were even more pressed for time. Fighting against poison from the inside while still taking attacks from the outside? It would be difficult for Trick to manage for more than a few turns. And overall, this tournament had taught Cynth that, against, human-trained Pokemon, it was best to start out aggressive. She had made a mistake in not ordering more attacks to start out with, she realized as the lizard zipped toward Trick a second time. The horse let out another sort of strangled whinny, but managed to keep himself more controlled. He tried to skitter out of the way, but in this contained area, the lizard had the greater speed and agility.

"Trick, use Morning Sun!" Cynth called out. That would offset some of the effects of the poison and help extend this battle for long enough to give them a chance at winning this, despite the poison. Keeping his eyes on his opponent, he focused on pulling in the energy from the sun- still visible and still strong through the scattered rain clouds.

"Now- be aggressive, hit him with everything you can!" It was a more vague instruction, but that gave Trick the element of surprise and a little bit of leeway to do what he thought was best.

Taking her command to heart, he began with the strongest attack in his arsenal- flame wheel. The flames of his mane and tail seemed to expand significantly, and almost seemed to wrap around his body a bit. Some of the flames even dripped from his mane and tail, running down his legs before petering out against the moist bricks. He charged forward thus cloaked in his flames, intending to plow straight into the lizard.

That attempt made, he quickly followed up with a second attack, repeating the tackle he had used before. it was simple but effective, and after using his two most advanced moves one after the other, he didn't have the energy for anything more complicated than a simple tackle.

Spectre

user posted image

Lv. 12 | M | HP:43% | EN: 28% | -1 DEF

Spectre used Scratch x2 (-16% + -5%)

Victor had no idea this pokemon could heal using the sun's ray. He should have figured when the gardener told him certain pokemon use the sun for attacks and healing. He just generalized them as being grass types. This was an interesting discovery and he hoped to figure something like this into future training.

With the horse re-energized, he'd still be taking the effects of poison. That meant Spectre had to rely on that to shift the tide back to his side. He was likely going to lose at this point and if he wasn't careful he was going to get crushed by this big horse.

The lizard was prepared to charge in but the ponyta was using its new found energy to dash in with a fiery tackle. The lizard aimed to get out of the way but wasn't quick enough. He felt the blunt of the horses hoove and rolled to the side. Picking himself up the ground, he saw Trick coming back in for another tackle. This time he wasn't as fired up as the first attack but the hit still hurt.

Victor didn't really know what else to do. All this salandit could do was use his claws and spitting flames at the opponent would be useless. They just had to roll with it. "Spectre, don't let up! Hop onto his back and scratch away!" the trainer called out.

The lizard used whatever strength he had to continue the fight. He ran over to the ponyta and attempted to hop on his back. From there he'd use multiple scratches.

Cynth
v.
Victor
Cynth watched the Ponyta carefully, considering how the two of them should proceed. The poison was most prominent in her mind. Typically she wouldn't opt for the strategy of push as hard, strong, fast as you can until you either lose or faint from exhaustion. She knew the benefits of hitting hard, but she typically gave her Pokemon a bit of a break between turns of going all-out. In this battle, however, with the poison slowly seeping through Trick and making him more and more ill, she knew they would lose the waiting game. They had no choice but to hit hard and strong once again, putting all of their remaining strength into one final push. If she commanded Trick to take it slow and easy, she would only be submitting the Ponyta to a slow but sure defeat.

But if they gambled it all in this next turn, there was a chance at victory. Not necessarily a huge chance, but their only chance. The young woman watched as the Ponyta made small sidesteps back and forth, slightly limping as he favored his scratched up back legs. The lizard was small, but it certainly knew how to fight. Or perhaps it was Victor's leadership that was allowing the creature to do so well in this battle. Trick wasn't crippled by any stretch of the imagination, but he was hurting. Cynth considered throwing in the towel now, knowing that Trick could hurt himself... but if she asked him to abandon a challenge when there was still a chance for victory, no matter how small, it would hurt his trust in her and it would take her a long time to win that back.

And, truth be told, she wasn't really thrilled with the idea of leaving the final battle of the tournament without exhausting every option for potential victory. Being in the finals this year meant a lot to her: it meant she and her Pokemon had grown and learned a great deal since last year. But winning the entire tournament? That would be a victory and a memory she would cherish forever.

If, if they could manage it.

"Okay, Trick. I know you're hurt. If you want, we can stop now rather than continue and risk injury." The equine turned and squinted slightly at her, then turned back to face his opponent, not making any move to leave the battlefield or otherwise indicate surrender. As Cynth had expected, but she'd felt compelled to offer the choice to him.

Then the lizard was on the move again, interrupting her thoughts. The Salandit sprinted and then leaped at Trick, landing on his back and proceeding to scratch madly at the him.

Seeing an opportunity, Cynth spoke her instructions loudly and quickly. "Begin with tail whip, then roll into a tackle to get him off!"

Trick seemed to be reacting even before she had finished speaking the instructions. He spun his body and flicked his tail up at the Salandit on his back, then straightened from his turn. His legs bent at the knees, then he quickly tipped his balance and rolled onto his side. He'd performed this particular technique before, using a modified tackle attack to get an enemy off of his back.

Regardless of whether or not this caused Spectre to retreat from his position on Trick's back, Cynth would order a second tackle. If the Salandit were still on his back, he would get to his feet and roll again over the creature; if the Salandit had relinquished his position on his back, Trick would merely charge in to perform the second tackle attack, ignoring the exhaustion in his limbs and trying to keep himself from stumbling.

Spectre

user posted image

Lv. 12 | M | HP:15% | EN: 14% | -2 DEF

Spectre dodged the second tackle

Spectre used Scratch (-8% + -6)

Spectre wasn't expecting the scratches to do much. The horse was resiliant and Victor was glad to be going up against such a tough opponent. He wondered how the woman was going to figure away around his strategy to hide the salandit on the ponyta's back.

Of course he expected him to jump up and down until the lizard was shook loose but it was more intense than that. The horse managed to shake off the salandit and whack him with its tail. The lizard flew into the air and was tackled backwards toward Victor.

The trainer tensed up as it appeared his pokemon was down for the count but Spectre managed to hold on just a bit longer. The horse attempted a second tackle and Victor knew that would be it. He hoped the salandit could react in time. "Spectre, get out the way!" He commanded.

The ponyta's last attack missed as the lizard sprung to the side. No matter what the horse would be attempting next, the salandit would charge in and scratch at its side, hopefully letting the poison do the rest.
