Default Re: Porygon2 vs RedneckPhoenix (ref: Negrek)

The fairy garden is tranquil this evening, as it always seems to be. Perhaps it's the remote location, or maybe some property of the delicate pink flowers that carpet the field, but one way or another the garden seems almost unnaturally quiet and peaceful. The arrival of two trainers promises to change all that, though, as the poké ball icon somewhat mysteriously trimmed into the grass at the garden's center marks this out as a battling arena.

Kung Fu Ferret stares around at the glowing field, but Porygon2 looks like this is just what he was expecting. He wastes no time selecting a pokémon and bringing his growlithe, Pepper, out onto the field. With a battle imminent, Kung Fu Ferret tears his eyes away from the weird glowing flowers and flashing fireflies to choose his own pokémon. The Rock the geodude might not be totally comfortable battling somewhere with so many plants, growling out a challenge to his opponent.

Pepper turns towards him briefly, lips pulled back in a snarl of such ferocity that The Rock's actually taken aback, the growl dying out somewhere in his ball-shaped body. Then Pepper looks away again, returning his wide-eyed gaze to the fireflies drifting overhead. He's never seen insects like that before, burning with their own intermittent fire.

The Rock regains his composure, then passes a look around the arena himself. less impressed. A bunch of bugs and pretty pink flowers--it's not really his scene. But punching other pokémon? He's always ready for that! The rock-type slams a fist into his open palm and roars out another challenge, one that sounds even louder than usual in the fairy garden's hush. Pepper jumps, startled, but doesn't get a chance to respond in kind before the referee announces the start of the first round. The growlithe forces himself to focus back on the battle at hand and leans forward, trying to control equal parts anxiety and excitement as he listens for his first orders.

Round One

Porygon2 (OO)
growlithe
Pepper (M) <Intimidate> @ Fire Stone
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Commands: Burn Up ~ Mud Slap ~ Will-O-Wisp
- Mesmerized by the fireflies.

RedneckPhoenix (OO)
geodude
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Commands: Earthquake ~ Toxic ~ DynamicPunch
- Are. You. Ready?!

Despite himself, Pepper's surprised by his first command. That's definitely an explosive start to his first battle! But The Rock's getting ready to unleash a powerful attack of his own, and Pepper knows he'll have to move fast, or the geodude's attack is going to hurt even more. The air around the growlithe ripples with heat, Pepper's very fur glowing a warning red, then orange, then white. Meanwhile The Rock slams his hands against the ground, waking violent tremors. A powerful earthquake shivers upwards while Pepper's burn up attack gains strength. The growlithe opens his mouth with a roar of superheated air, unleashing a massive fireball that engulfs The Rock completely. Then the earthquake roars up to engulf the arena, knocking Pepper off his feet while The Rock howls and beats at the flames with his fists. The burn up attack is hot enough to crack even The Rock's tough skin, and the earthquake is miserable for Pepper even with his fire elemental energy depleted. The flames spread through the thick grass covering the arena, and the earthquake opens deep fissures in the earth, tipping some hunks of sod up at crazy angles, while others are sunken and crumbling.

After so much effort expended on the very first action, it's unsurprising that the pokémon are much less gung-ho in their follow-ups. Pepper slowly pulls himself back to his feet, panting out clouds of whitish smoke as he tries to get his wind back. Digging his claws into dark earth exposed by The Rock's earthquake, he kicks a few clods of mud into the geodude's face, to The Rock's grumbling displeasure. For his part, the geodude excretes a sticky sheen of toxic heavy metals, scraping it off into his hands and unloading a double-barrelled dose of disgusting poison on Pepper. The growlithe yips and rears back. Ugh, some of that got in his mouth! Pepper spits and works his tongue unhappily, trying to scrape it off with one front paw. The metallic mixture tastes horribly bitter, and Pepper's already getting nauseous.

He can't spend too long trying to get rid of the poison, though. The Rock's already got one fist clenched, face set in a look of fierce determination, and Pepper wants to distract him as much as possible. It's hard, trying to draw flame when his own inner fire's quenched. The warm glow of the fire stone attached to his collar helps a little, but it's still several seconds before Pepper manages to breathe out a blue, swirling will-o-wisp. It's a little smaller than usual, but it gets the job done, drifting over to The Rock and leaving a dark black burn where it collides with the geodude's craggy skin.

The Rock acts like he doesn't even notice. Brilliant brown-gold light shines from within his fist, illuminating his grim expression in stark highlight and shadow. The geodude draws his fist back slowly, then snaps it forward with a terrifying roar and a blaze of golden energy. Pepper can't help but close his eyes in the face of the dynamic punch--which swishes so close past hise nose that he can feel its blazing heat against his face.

Pepper lets out a grateful breath, and another puff of smoke, while The Rock grumbles to himself. That growlithe's managed to avoid major damage so far--but just how long can his luck hold out?

Porygon2 (OO)
growlithe
Pepper (M) <Intimidate> @ Fire Stone
Health: 85%
Energy: 88%

RedneckPhoenix (OO)
geodude

Terrain Notes
Several small fires have started in the grass around The Rock, threatening to grow and spread with time. The ground is cracked and split, but most of the damage is covered by dense plantlife. An unwary step may see a pokémon dropping into a deep pit.

Final Notes
- Sorry for the delay! Porygon2's up next.
