Default Re: I liek Squirtles vs. Superbird

Agnes is distracted from her minor victory by a rippling in the air around her. The whole world blurs a moment, the environment convulsing and for a moment devolving to a low-resolution, pixellated rendition. When it settles down again, the grassy arena the battle began on is nowhere to be seen. Instead, the battle's taking place on a flat hunk of ice, set adrift on an endless sea.

Agnes taps at the ice with one foot. Seems solid enough, if slippery, and Francine's rock tomb is unchanged. Okay, then. That was weird.

Weird or not, the arena's sudden change isn't going to interfere with Agnes' plan. The prinplup raises her flippers, calling up another wave of rocks. There aren't exactly any around to heed her call, but with a series of loud cracking noises, part of the platform crumbles and rises into the air. Agnes directs the hunks of ice to crash down over the existing rock tomb--they work well enough. And indeed, Francine, waiting inside the rock tomb, grinds her teeth together as the weight of the ice drives the rocks encasing her into her side. At least now she can stop hiding. The natu closes her eyes a moment, concentrates, then disappears with a sharp popping noise.

Francine takes shape in front of Agnes, battered and glaring and ready to get on with the fight. Unimpressed, Agnes summons up another swarm of icy fragments, but Francine, equally unimpressed, deflects them with a well-timed energy shield. The natu opens her beak and, to Agnes' surprise and discomfort, begins to emit a dense, dark fog. The haze spreads rapidly across the chunk of ice, until all Agnes can see on all sides is its dark, swirling tendrils. Its clammy touch seems to suck the life right out of her, and the indignation she was feeling at having her own defog blown back at her gradually dissipates in the face of cold discomfort.

It's not exactly the best conditions for dancing, but Agnes gathers herself, resolves not to let Francine ruin her fun, and begins. The prinplup makes a cautious, shuffling dance, trying not to stray too far from one spot for fear of running off the edge of the ice, not moving too fast lest she slip and fall. But waddling on ice is something all prinplup know well, and in the end Agnes manages a passable rain dance. She can't see the clouds gathering overhead, but soon a few raindrops spatter down through the haze, turning everything even colder and wetter than it was before.
