Holly's still sleeping in her hiding place, totally relaxed and at peace. By now the last of the poison has long been purged from her system, and aside from a few minor internal injuries, she's good as new. Serqet, some distance away under the desert sun, gets the sense that time is running out to find her opponent, but has no idea just how close Holly is to being back on her feet. The bug-type contemplates her commands hopelessly: all reasonable enough, but not a great deal of help when she doesn't even know where Holly is. The skorupi describes anxious circles across the sand, not wanting to go too far from the pyramid where her trainer is--certainly not wanting to get lost out in the desert--but also knowing that she has to find Holly somehow, or the battle's as good as lost.

While Serqet crawls aimlessly through the sand, she at last stumbles across something odd: regular depressions, forming a messy line that leads off around the corner of the pyramid. Footprints! The loose sand doesn't hold them well, and they're already filling in, but it's enough for Serqet to seize on. Holly must have gone this way! The skorupi sets off with renewed purpose, spirits buoyed as she thinks that now, at last, she's on the right track.

Meanwhile, Holly slowly comes awake, feeling lazy and quite comfortable in her temporary shelter. For a while she's content to lie where she is, curled in a tight ball to increase her defenses while she slowly comes back to full wakefulness. She can't just lie around all day, though; she's going to have to get back into this battle eventually if she wants to win--and anyway, hiding out forever would be boring!

The charmander slowly rises up on her hind legs, peeking over the rim of the jug. The man tending this stall is mostly paying attention to the road and the tourists that periodically come filtering down it, exchanging snatches of friendly conversation with the salespeople in the tents neighboring his. Still, Holly has to imagine that he'll notice a pokémon banging around in his merchandise, especially since most of it's fragile. She sinks back down to the bottom of the jug and tilts her head back, fire gathering in her throat to form a small, compact ball of fire packed with explosive power. Holly blows the sunny day straight up, and the ball of fire drifts towards the sky, burning a hole in the roof of the pottery-seller's stall as it goes.

The man does notice the sudden burst of heat that seems to come from somewhere behind him and turns around immediately and anxiously scans the ranks of merchandise--weird changes in temperature often mean pokémon are about, after all, and he definitely doesn't want any of those running around his stall. Holly remains completely still in her hiding place, holding her breath and hoping desperately that he'll relax and go back to selling things soon.

Outside, the sunny day travels high overhead before exploding into a miniature sun, turning the oppressive heat of the clear day even more outrageous. Serqet hisses and shields her eyes for a moment, desperatey wishing for some shade. At least the footprints lead on, clear enough in the sand, and up ahead is a cluster of humans and pokémon, buzzing with agitation over the sudden appearance of the sunny day overhead. That's probably where Holly went! The skorupi sets out again with renewed determination and the feeling that, at last, she's closing in on her opponent.

Kung Fu Ferret (OOO)
skorupi
Serqet (F) <Sniper>
Health: 90%
Energy: 82%
- Hustling across the dunes. -2 Speed
Used: Nothing x3

Gzhoom (OOO)

Holly (F) <Blaze>
Health: 100%
Energy: 81%
- Being as still and quiet as possible. +1 Defense

Terrain Notes
There is a narrow tunnel leading from Gzhoom's side of the arena to the desert outside. Both pokémon are now outside the pyramid, where the terrain is desert, with several other pyramids looming in the vicinity. Tour groups, water-sellers and curio shops of all sorts dot the sand between the monuments. The hot desert sun has gotten hotter, mercilessly scorching every exposed surface (4 more actions).

Final Notes
- Fixed the error with Serqet's name. Sorry about that!
- Since Serqet still doesn't know where Holly is, she spent the round without attacking again.
- Kung Fu Ferret first next round.
