Default Re: Birdcrest vs. Faorzia

Nobody's exactly sure how it got it, but the Asber League’s Number-One Abra has had the ability for some time now to teleport between dimensions. And it has, of course, taught all of the other League Abra how to do the same thing. As well as any other pokémon that asks.

Today, that ability is used to get to the Mario Kart Stadium. People begin to file into the stands, clearly ready to watch the battle that’s about to begin. And so, as soon as the two combatants arrive and the referee has teleported in with his Xatu, callously disregarding the League’s courteous offer of a transportation Abra, the trainers send out their pokémon right in the middle of the track. On one side, a cute little bird pokémon that hops a couple of times and chirps brightly, and on the other side a not-so-cute looking Binacle that stares steadfastly towards its opponent. Wasting no further time, the referee procures flags and signals the battle to begin.

Round 1

Birdcrest (OOO)

Dragoknight – Binacle (♀)
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Ability: Tough Claws
Type: Rock / Water
Condition: Focused and menacing.
Status: Normal
Commands: Swords Dance ~ Smack Down ~ Rock Slide / Smack Down / Swords Dance

Faorzia (OOO)
starly
Octavian Rush – Starly (♂)
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Ability: Keen Eye
Type: Normal / Flying
Condition: A bit carefree.
Status: Normal
Commands: Attract ~ Agility ~ Agility / Ominous Wind

Octavian Rush begins the battle by hopping over to his stoic opponent and chirping a few words of love – he’s a charmer, he is – while cracking a sexy pose (at least, it would be sexy as hell to any other pidove; he hopes Dragoknight would feel the same way) and even daring to talk a little bit dirty. And he points out the fact that the he and his opponent are both here today, at the race track – it’s like a date, you know? Maybe we were destined to be.

The humans, not knowing how to speak pokémon for the most part, simply stare in confusion as Dragoknight receives his opponent’s advance with a straight face. Octavian Rush begins to wonder if his opponent even heard his words when Dragoknight hops back a couple of times and begins to spin her heads around in a strange dancing motion. Maybe that means she liked it? Anyway, she doesn’t seem to be attacking for the time being – oh, scrap that, he tossed a rock, time to run.

Octavian Rush lives up to his name, quickly darting past the stone his opponent digs out of the ground and tosses at him, and fluttering up to the railing of the overpass up above. Dragoknight glances up at her opponent, her eyes forming into regretful expressions, as if to say “I just wanted to play, is that okay?” But Octavian Rush won’t buy that quite yet. His opponent just tried to attack him as a sign of live, and he doesn’t appreciate that.

As Octavian Rush doesn’t seem to be coming down, Dragoknight tries another Swords Dance – it seemed to work last time, and maybe it will get her opponent to come back down so that she can apologize. But the Starly doesn’t seem in the mood for apologies right now, instead summoning a ghostly power and, talons digging into the railing he stands on, flaps his wings to imbue the air around him with that spectral flare, and send it towards his opponent. The Ominous Wind whips quickly towards Dragoknight, who cringes a little as she weathers the assault, and wonders where exactly she went wrong? Did she express her interest the wrong way? Her opponent doesn’t seem to be that interested anymore, so what was that first action about? She’s so confused.

End of Round 1

Birdcrest (OOO)

Dragoknight – Binacle (♀)
Health: 96%
Energy: 95%
Ability: Tough Claws
Type: Rock / Water
Condition: Trying to figure out her opponent’s mentality.
Status: Attack +4.
Actions: Swords Dance ~ Smack Down (Missed) ~ Swords Dance

Faorzia (OOO)
starly
Octavian Rush – Starly (♂)
Health: 100%
Energy: 91%
Ability: Keen Eye
Type: Normal / Flying
Condition: Suspicious and wary of his opponent.
Status: Normal
Commands: Attract ~ Agility ~ Ominous Wind

Referee Notes
~Smack Down missed on Action 2 due to Agility.
~As Agility was used to dodge, it did not raise Speed.
~On Action 3, as Faorzia was instructed to get out of range of Smack Down and didn’t seem to be coming back, Dragoknight interpreted that as trying to avoid Smack Down, and thus used Swords Dance.
~Due to the distance, Ominous Wind suffered a damage penalty.
~Faorzia commands first.
