Welcome

Our old universe has
fallen into impossible chaos and destruction, but the Legendaries will save us; are saving us; have saved us. Soon many lives and memories will fill this new world, and give it purpose.

Events

Terrene continues to heat
up, both in temperature and in conflict. Beta is asking for spies to infiltrate Omega's camp, while Dentelle simply wants to inquire after the scientist's progress. Later in the season, Beta is hosting his annual crater city tournament, where people can test their Pokemon and their leadership and strategies against one another.

Season

Summer will be here until
September. The heat of summer is here in full force, as well as the accompanying summer thunderstorms. Bug, electric, and fire types all thrive while others wilt under these conditions.

This battle is taking place on the edge of a berry farm, just southeast of Crater's outskirts. On the right of the battlefield, there is a small manmade pond lined with rocks, approximately three feet in diameter. To the right of the pond and parallel to it is the first of many rows of berry trees that are ripe with (non-battle relevant) berries. Feel free to use your environment to your advantage. Good luck, combatants! The deadline for this round is June 22nd.

Moving Forward
The first match had been a success, Trocar pulling off a victory on the large insectoid creature. She had been confident in her strategy, but less confident in the mienfoo, who sometimes wouldn't listen to her commands. It worked out that he was afraid of the scyther and decided to work with her in order to survive. That shred of respect she earned with him by being strong herself was the salvation in their relationship. She needed to get him to be more loyal to her, however. The more loyal he was, the more likely he'd follow her commands to the T. She needed her pokemon to listen to her orders.

Regardless, they had won and she'd been progressed to the next round. She stepped forward, her boots pressing into the ground as studious eyes gazed upon her surroundings. Her hair was tied and draped over her right shoulder as she walked along the trail of berry trees. Each was ripe with berries, and she was glad to see the crops here were fruitful and well tended. That was certainly a huge advantage over the desert village she currently stayed in. They provided another element to the battlefield however, as a space that one could use as an obstacle, or a place to hide. She kept that in mind as she pushed towards the battlefield.

With half the matches as yesterday, the crowd was a bit bigger than before. However, given the still low number of people watching, she assumed her opponent was another who was not well known. They would both become more well-known, having both won the first round, but that wasn't enough. She needed to try to win this battle as well, and get into the third round, and eventually the finals. Her goal was to get her name known as Gem, to have her image start to circulate. The woman needed to be a subject on people's lips, so people would know of her aptitude for battle. It would only aid her to become more well-known.

Arshia took her place on the battlefield, looking out over the crowd and field as a hand brushed through her loose curls absently. There was a pond, clearly man-made, lined out nearby that could be used as well. It was a shame she didn't have any water pokemon. But in case her opponent did, she knew which of her team to use in this match. With an extra source of water to aid them, she needed to be careful with her selection. So she pulled out the pokeball for her original partner, the orange bug with two mushrooms growing out of his back coming to view from the light. Most underestimated this creature, but she was confident in her strategy to pull a win with him. The left mushroom on his back was growing back a bit from being cut off a couple days ago, and it looked like the other was almost ready to be clipped.

She noted this as she waited on her opponent to appear.

Nox
Azura had done well in the first round, earning Nox a victory and a spot in the second round. He wasn't sure who his opponent was or what sort of pokemon they might use. His plan was to use Azura, he trusted her to listen to him if he told her to do something or to stop if he asked her to stop. He could not say the same about his other two pokemon. But spending time working with them, training and battling together, was supposed to build bonds of trust. He was still uncertain whether or not he wanted to keep the strange ghost he'd caught shortly after arriving. Of course, it had been long enough since he'd caught it that releasing it now just seemed like a waste. Besides, it had helped him out once before (though mostly because of Azura) so perhaps it could be useful. All that it would really require was finding some way that they could work together.

That was the direction his thoughts took as he walked past rows of berry bushes toward his next match. As he stepped past the last row and weaved his way through the crowd that had gathered to reach the area marked off for the battle to take place, he surveyed the area with a quick glance. His gaze lingered on the pond, knowing that Azura would have an advantage with a ready source of water right in the battlefield. Eventually his gaze settled on the woman he was pretty sure was his opponent. She was the only one standing away from the crowd, after all. Before her was a strange, insect-like creature with mushrooms growing out of it's back. One was quite a bit larger than the other and Nox couldn't help but wonder if that was natural or if the mushrooms signified some manner of illness. Though, if the pokemon was sick, why would the woman have it out? Mentally he ruled out illness which meant the mushrooms were a natural part of this particular pokemon. And if that was true, then it gave him a hint about what type it was. Pokemon that looked plant-like or had plants growing on them, were grass types and would pose a problem for Azura. He knew fire was an excellent counter to grass but he lacked a fire type pokemon.

As he moved to his position on the opposite end of the marked out area, Nox offered a smile to his opponent. "I'm Nox, it's a pleasure to meet you." He said, pulling a pokeball from his bag and rolling it in his hand. He could try and use Azura and possibly lose, or he could use either Angel or Drifloon and have a better chance or winning and moving on to the next round. And hadn't he just been thinking that he needed to try and work with Angel and the Drifloon to come to some sort of understanding with them anyway? I hope I don't regret this. Was his thought as he released the pokemon from the ball he held. The strange ghost materialized in front of him, it's black eyes taking in the unfamiliar surroundings. There were a lot of humans around and this place was most definitely not the forest she lived in before being caught. That human, at least, was familiar. He stood behind her, facing a female human and a Paras. What did he want from her this time? She eyed the Paras. Was she supposed to fight this thing? It didn't look like much of a fighter. She could probably take it out easy. And if she did then maybe they could be friends!

"My battler for this match will be Drifloon. Would you like to make the first move or..." Nox's words were cut off as a breeze suddenly blew in from behind him, ruffling his hair and causing the Drifloon's string-like 'arms' to sway as well. Before Nox could say anything as an apology or to stop the ghost, it was rushing forward to try and wrap those creepy strings around the Paras.

Using Poison Powder on Drifloon.

Retaliation
Her opponent arrived at the battlefield, the tall man with dark hair taking his place. He seemed very thoughtful as he observed the field, the woman's eyes trained on him as he approached and took a moment to simply view the details. It was good that he was taking this seriously, and measuring the field before launching into the battle. She wouldn't be able to form a solid plan until she knew what pokemon she was facing, but she had some ideas on how she could approach almost any opponent in battle. She was curious what kinds of pokemon this man had, however.

He greeted her once his eyes settled on her, giving a smile. She returned a soft smile. "The pleasure is mine. You may call me Gem." The ruby gem pressed on her forehead was lit up in the light as she lightly bowed her head in the man's direction. He'd passed the first round as well, which meant she needed to weigh him as possibly more adept than her previous opponent. Which was very likely, in reality. Her head pulled back up as she waited, giving the man a moment to pull out the pokemon he wished to battle with. She wasn't forced to wait long before he moved to grab a pokeball.

A strange floating creature appeared, two little strings hanging from its main body. If she had to make a guess, she would say this was a ghost. Its odd form and empty black eye sockets spoke to such possession of a material object. Very interesting. Her preference would have been for Caliper to take a fight against a ghost, but she couldn't simply change her choice now. She needed to think on how best to deal with it. The pokemon, while perhaps past death, would still be susceptible to status issues like any other creature. Its form would be affected by what they could dish out, which was good for Lancet's ability.

He spoke politely, and was in the middle of asking if she would prefer to go first before the ghost moved. The wind started to pick up, and she knew from that the battle had begun. So, it was a creature that was not inclined to following directions. Arshia couldn't say she was pleased that a trainer would use a pokemon that was inclined to act of its own volition, but her own choice in Trocar had been a gamble after all. At least he had followed her orders in the end though, unlike this unruly pokemon. She supposed that was positive however, as that likely meant the ghost would be more reckless and straight-forward rather than strategic.

It moved quickly, closing in as the strings reached out towards the paras, wrapping thinly around his body and constricting him. It didn't seem to be overly powerful, as he didn't seem in too much pain, but having him in its grasp was not an ideal situation. The spores didn't appear to latch onto the ghost either, falling harmlessly to the ground. "Poison Powder." She spoke the words bluntly, not wasting her words in the command. She was confident the pokemon would understand. Lancet struggled to move, but the powder shook from his body as he tried to spray it on the drifloon. At such a close range, it was unlikely the ghost could avoid such an attack.

"You should consider getting better control over your creature. Those who do not follow your commands are a liability." Her eyes remained on the battle occurring, but it was likely easy to tell her blunt words were aimed at the opposing trainer. Gem considered what she could do, hoping the poison would take effect and the paras would escape its grasp. Being held as such didn't allow much room for him to be strategic, but also didn't allow for the drifloon to be able to do much else. It would have to release him if it wanted to use another attack. She was curious how this would unfold.

Nox
Nox was not pleased by the ghost's actions. He had known it would be a risk to try and use the ghost but he'd held out a rather slim hope that it would behave itself. It had been a foolish hope and now he had to deal with it. He still had her pokeball in his hand and was briefly tempted to just recall it and withdraw from the tournament rather than stand there and look like a fool because he couldn't control his own pokemon. But he'd made this choice because he was determined to start trying to work with both Angel and this Drifloon. And even if her unruly behavior cost him the match, it was a start and it would be a learning experience for him. He needed to know what this ghost was capable of.

The woman, Gem, spoke from her side of the field. Poison Powder? Nox had never heard of the move but it didn't sound like a good thing. "Let go and get away." Whether the ghost heard him and chose not to react at first or if his command had simply not been quick enough he wasn't sure, but the Drifloon didn't let go as the strange bug-like creature squirmed in it's grip. It did let go, however, as the spores began to settle on it's body and a strange sensation filled it. It released the Paras and drifted up and away from it, shuddering as pain wracked it. "That's what you get for rushing in like that." Nox commented under his breath as he watched the ghost. It looked like it was okay enough to keep battling, though if 'Poison Powder' meant what he thought it did he'd have to watch the ghost closely. He wasn't sure what effect poison would have on the ghost if it was exposed for too long but he supposed he was going to learn today.

Gem's words cut into his thoughts and he had to bite back an angry response. She was right. If the Drifloon wouldn't listen to him it was definitely not a good thing. But could she say with complete honesty that her own pokemon didn't disobey once in awhile? "Unless you can look me in the eye and tell me that each and every one of your pokemon listens and understands you perfectly you have no right to criticize me." And if that was the truth, maybe she could give him some pointers instead of standing there and acting like she was better than he was. That sort of attitude only made him that much more determined to try and win, to prove that he could manage to handle the ghost and that she was wrong to think he couldn't.

As the ghost drifted back toward him, he considered what he knew of the creature. When he'd first met it it had been using that same constricting move against a poor bug. Then it had flown up close to attack Azura. And when they'd faced a Taillow and some brightly colored humanoid looking bird it had used some sort of ranged attack. "Stay away from that thing. Attack from a distance." The ghost turned to stare at him from the black points that passed for it's eyes. He didn't know if it understood or would obey him. All he could really do was hope. After what felt like an eternity, the ghost turned and summoned up a ghostly looking ball of mud which it launched at the insect. Of course, Nox wasn't sure if it had done so because he'd told it to or because it wanted to or some combination of the two but at least it looked like it was following his orders and, for now, he'd take what he could get in that regard.

Drifloon, of course, knew the human was right and that it should not get near the Paras again; not after what it had done to her last time. That strange feeling was still there and she did not wish to risk getting near enough for more spores to be thrown on her. But she also did not want to obey the silly human that had taken her away from her friends in the forest. She was torn between dual desires to make the Paras a ghost friend for her to play with and to ignore the human that was trying to tell her what to do. Ultimately, her desire for friends won out and she had attacked because it was the best way to go about getting what she wanted.

Using full action to dodge/have the attack hit the berry tree. Will then climb into the tree to conceal himself.

Avoidance
Listening intently to the man's reply to her comment, it was clear she'd struck a nerve. Though his voice seemed rather calm compared to others, his words were curt enough to portray the meaning. He considered her to be criticizing him, and did not appreciate the advice. Very well then. If he was willing to allow a chaotic force to simply do as it wishes with no regard to the order and set guidelines of their society, then so be it. She would certainly keep this one in mind. The woman had responses she could give, but it was not worth the breath. After all, he clearly wasn't interested in what she had to say on the manner, else he would have responded more positively.

So instead she focused on the battle. The match-up was certainly less than ideal, and she needed Lancet to get out of the way for now, and see if the poison could take effect long enough to cause some real damage. The powder luckily did as it was supposed too, and the drifloon was not pleased. In a good turn of the battle, the pokemon dropped the paras, allowing him freedom of movement while the ghost collected themselves. This was an opportunity. "Lancet, get to the nearest tree and hide within." The creature followed the order, moving quickly towards one of the short berry trees.

The command hadn't come but a moment too soon either. The other trainer was trying to urge his unruly pokemon to attack from afar. If it truly had such capabilities, then Lancet was more outmatched than before. He did not have many attacks, and certainly wasn't able to attack from afar. No, the tree was still his best bet. If he could get to the tree in time, then the obstacle would block whatever attack it launched - and, make it so the ghost would be forced to close in if it wanted to land an attack. Yes, she needed to have him get into cover and ready himself. If he could just avoid this attack, then he will be able to regain chances at winning this fight.

As the ghost prepared to attack, her voice rang out again. The paras was still skittering towards the tree. "Lancet, dodge if you are unable to get to the tree first. Use the tree!" The pokemon skittered as fast as he could trying to reach the tree. If he was able, he get his body around the tree, and then climb into the bushes of leaves to keep concealed from the opponent. If he was struck, he would withstand the attack and continue, eventually making it to the tree anyway and hiding among the flora. Once he was in position, it would make the battle that much more difficult on the drifloon, as long range attacks would be likely out of the question.

Nox
To the tree? Nox's gaze flicked toward the berry bushes. If the insect made it into one of those it would prove problematic for the Drifloon. It wasn't quick enough to avoid being hit by Drifloon's attack but it didn't let being hit deter it from escaping into the safety of one of the bushes and nestling itself among the branches. They had the benefit of knowing exactly which bush the creature had chosen to hide in but attacking would be difficult. The Drifloon knew only a handful of attack that Nox was aware of and none of them would be particularly effective at hitting a target concealed by leaves and branches. Except, ghosts could phase through object couldn't they? He was pretty sure someone had mentioned that once. He wasn't sure if that would help now but it was something to keep in mind as he considered what to do next.

As for the Drifloon, she had drifted over to the bush and was trying to peer inside it to spot the Paras. Come out little Paras. We haven't finished our game yet and I want to play some more. The ghost's voice, though barely more than a whisper on the wind to the humans, was child-like as it tried to coax the Paras out of hiding. She didn't really want to go into the bush after the bug since she was still feeling off after the last time she'd gotten too close. But if it wouldn't come out on it own then she would have to go in after it. She couldn't quite tell where the bug was so trying to hit it with Clear Smog again wouldn't do her much good. "If we can't see it, it can't see us very well either. Use that to your advantage." The human was speaking again. She understood it well enough, but she chose to ignore it most of the time. It had stopped her from making a new friend and put her into that stupid prison orb. But it also wasn't stupid. It's idea seemed reasonable. The leaves would make visibility hard for both pokemon. But the other human could see her and would probably tell the Paras what she was doing....unless she made sure the Paras's human couldn't see her.

Drifloon allowed herself to drift this way and that, tugging at the bush with her string-like hands and then drifting over to inspect the next bush. It plucked a couple of berries and leaves off and drifted over toward the female human. She stopped well out of the woman's reach and, in a movement similar to when she'd tossed the ghostly mud of her Clear Smog attack, she threw the berries and leaves at the human before floating as quickly as possible back toward the bushes and disappearing behind them. Nox tried to keep his composure, as if that was all part of his plan, but he could not help but smirk at the ghost's antics. "Ah, sorry about that. I'm sure you know how it goes with unruly pokemon, though. You just never know what they might do." Nox thought he knew what the ghost was attempting and figured he could attempt to help. With the female human, hopefully, not paying as much attention and therefore unable to warn the Paras of her location, the Drifloon flew toward the bush where the bug was hiding, hoping to attack it from behind. Boo! I found you little Paras! Come out and play some more! She shouted as she reached up and tried to smack the Parsa with her 'hands' as she got near enough.

Since Lancet is flinching and Drifloon is sleeping, I'm assuming we can go this next round without rolls xD I wanted to post showing Lancet actually flinching/just 1 round towards the sleep/poison, rather than mashing them together.

Flinching and unable to attack!

Failure To Act
She watched as the paras still got hit, unable to dodge the attack. She made a note to train the pokemon on speed and maneuverability more. It wouldn't do for the pokemon to be taking so many hits. He needed to become more agile, so as to prevent taking damage in the first place as much as possible. Still, he followed directions as she knew he would and got into the tree. The balloon floated over after, and she debated having the creature launch out and attack now. No, it was best to wait for a moment. Allow the paras to hide, and gauge how the ghost reacted to the hidden opponent. With the pokemon close to the tree, the plan to lure her over had been successful.

However, the creature was soon floating away, looking and pulling at the other trees. She didn't believe that the pokemon was dull enough to think that Lancet was in another tree. Which meant that she was up to something. Still, she held off and waited patiently as she moved, her partner staying still and hidden within the thick leaves as he awaited a new command obediently. The ghost was collecting berries and leaves awkwardly, as much as the thin strings with little flat ends could. Without arms, it would be practically impossible for the pokemon to collect much, but she sure seemed to be trying.

She turned and moved in Gem's direction, the woman tensing up, and shifting into a more defensive posture. The ghost wouldn't dare to attack the trainer directly, would she? Either way, she needed to be prepared. The leaves and berries were thrust at her from a distance, and the woman side jumped out of the way. The leaves fluttered uselessly in the air as the berries lobbed towards her. They drifted past where she'd been standing and fell to the ground as the creature quickly moved back towards the tree with Lancet. So, the plan had been to distract her. It was admittedly clever, but yet another action taken without direction from the trainer. She idly wondered how the Crater Officials could allow a pokemon acting of its own volition and not working under the orders of the trainer competing to continue battling.

If the woman had been one to lean on her emotions, she might have been offended. As it was, the logic-minded trainer felt the need to correct his assumption. He'd stated she knew how unruly pokemon could be, but that was not true. "Incorrect. None of the pokemon I have trained or captured have been allowed to engage in such behavior. Unruly behavior is a negative habit that must be addressed and corrected immediately. As such, those pokemon I've taken under my supervision have been taught strictly and quickly. Not a single one of them have deigned to attack a human nor pokemon without my command, so I would not have the experience to understand these actions which your ghost takes." Her tone was neutral and factual, as her gaze remained completely focused on the battle at hand. No matter how the man took her correction, she would pay him little mind. She needed to keep her concentration on the drifloon, so that it would not be successful in distracting her acute sight and attention.

The pokemon had managed to find the paras in the tree, and pulled up quickly behind him. She shouted and attacked, the flat pieces at the base of her strings lifting and smacking into the grass-type in the tree. Arshia's face showed no emotion as she analyzed and prepared her counter. As the creature was hit, the spores burst from his skin, landing on the pokemon to inflict the random effect. "Use stun spore, while it's close!" She called out. But this time, the paras did not move. Her eyes squinted a bit, as she trained herself on the bush. It wasn't moving, so she assumed that the pokemon was unable to perform the attack as order, rather than ignoring her. The attack the ghost used must have had a side-effect. Unfortunate, but she would simply have to wait until it wore off.

Nox
Nox couldn't help a chuckle as the woman leaped away from the berries and leaves as if they were dangerous. "Aw. Are you afraid of the little berry leaves?" He couldn't help it. It was just too amusing. Would he have allowed himself to get a face full of leaves and berries? No, but that didn't mean he was just going to let that little display slide. Her subsequent lecture earned her a shrug. "It's a battle. Attacking the other opponent is kinda the point, isn't it? Besides, if you never allow your pokemon to attack without being given a direct order you're setting yourself up for a potentially dangerous situation. If my pokemon sees a threat that I don't, I want them to attack first, to defend themselves and me. As for attacking humans, not a single one of my pokemon has attacked a human. If Drifloon wanted to hurt you she would have. In this case she was playing around trying to distract you so you couldn't tell your little bug what to do." And Nox wholeheartedly approved of what she'd done, even if he was only guessing at what the ghost had been up to. If nothing else, it was amusing for him. "Also, if I told her to distract you then it wouldn't be a very good distraction would it?" He pointed out as an afterthought.

Whether Gem opted to respond or not, Nox would return his attention to the battle. Drifloon had rushed into the bush to attack using the same move she'd first used on Azura. As soon as shed touched the Paras, Drifloon felt a sense of sleepiness overcome her. No! No it was not time to sleep. She did not want to. No...wha...'m not sleepy... She tried to back out of the bush succeeding in getting as far as the outer branches before the Effect Spore fully took hold and her little black eyes drifted closed. Instinctively, she wrapped one string around a nearby twig to keep from being blown around by the wind. Gem gave her pokemon an order and...nothing happened. Nox was sorely tempted to say something about the bug ignoring her but he'd seen Azura freeze up after being hit by that attack once, It was probably something to do with the ghost and not because the bug was being disobedient.

Plus, he had his own worries to deal with. The ghost had backed away from the bush some but now she was just floating there. Had the poison she'd been suffering done this? Or was it something else? He wanted to approach, to see what was going on, but he also wasn't sure if he was allowed to approach the battling pokemon. Not to mention that it wouldn't exactly be safe to do so. He'd have to stay put and wait.

Final Push
The man... chuckled as she got out of the way of the attack. While she still kept her eyes on the battle to defy the ghost's attempts to distract or blind her, her eyebrow quirked up. His voice as he spoke was odd compared to the previous, and she recognized it as some sort of emotional inflection. Normally she'd ask, but now wasn't exactly the time. And he'd made another incorrect assumption, speaking as if she feared the leaves. Perhaps his purpose was to try and distract her, in accordance with his pokemon's actions. That would make the most sense, trying to pull her attention with his words and odd inflection.

But even his was focused on the battle at hand, as if he was actually contributing meaningfully to it. No, this was a battle between a wild pokemon and Lancet. He might own the ghost in name, but his lack of control meant the pokemon wasn't trained. Though he called suggestions/advice to the pokemon, she knew better than that. It was the straight-forward strategy, and the creative pieces were added in by the pokemon alone. It followed with the words off coincidence and independent thought, she assumed, rather than his orders. It's motions and movements did not match up to one who was well-trained.

The more this man spoke, the more her view of him diminished. With each sentence, fully analyzed even as she kept her eyes on the more important fight, she was driven more to critique on his thoughts. He was striving to defend his pokemon and his own self, she felt. It was due to the emotion he experienced, she had to guess. Nothing else would drive someone to such thoughtless prattle such as he was giving, unless her consideration on his attempt to distract her was correct. But no, she didn't feel it was that thought out. And his pure acceptance of the pokemon attacking a human, when the battle was clearly outlined as a 1 versus 1 competition between the pokemon, with only words and commands from the trainers to guide them through the battle.

"No, you are incorrect once more. However given the priority and the amount of detail I would need to correct your statements, I am finding that I must instead save my breath. It is clear you will not listen after all, only deflecting for the sake of your pride." Her words were curt and even. She was still working off logic, and the assumptions she made based on previous experience and the situation at hand. His follow-up was also something easy to shoot down. "One should be subtle, something that comes from training and disciplining your pokemon. Gestures, off words, or similar in order to create a hidden command that leaves your opponent wondering what is to come."

She straightened her posture, seeing no need to further keep defensive with the drifloon on the correct target now. "Just so. Lancet, 1, 2." The odd code came out, and the bug fought against the odd feeling he'd gotten. this ghost was creepy as heck, but he'd already missed a command. Oh, he didn't want to let her down! So when the numbers came out, he immediately moved to action, not wanting to let her down again. He shook off his nerves, taking solace in that the pokemon had fallen asleep. Hopefully this would finish it. The pokemon leaped out of the tree, as much as his little thin legs could carry him. He landed on the ground and moved to the balloon, who was still close by. Getting up close to the pokemon's body, he launched a series of small bug bites on the ghost. Immediately after, he moved up a few inches and attacked once more, doubling the attack that had been aligned to when the woman called '1'.
