For a while all is quiet around the battlefield, the gentle crackle of flames and a light breeze blowing the smoke around the battlefield the only sounds breaking the stunned silence. Psyfox knows he can't lie around aching forever, though. There's only one way to bring this insanity to an end, and that is to go forth and call on more insanity, naturally.

The abra rises slowly back into the air, eyes resolutely closed but mind sweeping back and forth across the arena, taking in the scene. Most of the other pokémon appear to be no threat, simply lying around nursing their injuries or hoping to go unnoticed. The Rock, though, is stirring, perhaps thinking of creeping up on an unsuspecting abra. Psyfox opens his mouth and lets out a terrific roar, straight at The Rock, warning him away. The Rock pauses, definitely startled, and for a moment actually fearful of the abra hovering on his cushion of psychic energy, charred and battered and roaring at the top of his lungs. But it's a passing moment--The Rock's stared down way tougher opponents than this. And they roared louder, too! The Rock roars back at Psyfox, swinging his fists above his head to let the abra know he's welcome to bring it any time.

Like a call to arms, Psyfox's roar sends a ripple of activity sweeping across the battlefield. The other fighters shudder and cringe, unhappy at the disturbance but knowing that they, too, need to get back up and back into the fight. Even USB Charger, who has spent the majority of the battle dearly wishing he didn't have to fight, is resigned to at least a couple more rounds of metronome havoc. He gets slowly to his feet, unsteady but feeling better the longer he stays vertical. Dreamling, on the other hand, is still lying facedown, apparently having decided that she'd rather take a nap than fight. Abra, after all. But still, if USB Charger has to stick with this, so does she. The elekid lets her know as much in no uncertain terms, insinuating that Dreamling won't fight because she can't, that she's scared, that actually maybe it would be better if she just stayed down so she won't embarrass herself any more this battle.

That at last gets the abra moving. Dreamling surges up to an angry float, fingers fairly twitching with her eagerness to strike back. Only one problem--she's so angry she can't even concentrate on her attack. She just wants to wipe that smug look off USB Charger's face, but no matter how she tries, she can't wrangle her ticking fingers into sync, and no attack materializes. USB Charger's laughter only infuriates Dreamling further, but still: no luck.

The thick coat of cotton spores on top of the partial ice coat isn't helping Goldeneye much with maneuverability. She lurches hopefully towards Dreamling, having to drag one half-frozen leg, but though the metronome's given her the sudden inclination and ability to reach for the the abra with a crush claw, it can't do anything about the ice still clinging to her arm. Goldeneye tries to come at Dreamling sidelong, swiping her arm through the full range of motion

Meanwhile, The Rock is feeling super pumped up after resisting the terror of Psyfox's roar. In fact, he goes so far as to strike a pose before launching his next attack, one arm curled up to show his bicep and the other thrown out to point dramatically at Dreamling. In the name of the moon I'll freaking destroy you! The geodude's body briefly dazzles a blinding rainbow procession of colors, and then he shoots a concentrated ball of sparkling energy at Dreamling, neatly swatting the abra out of the air.

As usual, Jonathan and Random Number Degenerate are left last to move. Jonathan's still lying there, staring glassily at nothing while his body refuses to move, and Degenerate's still industriously trying to conjure some kind of attack despite his stuttering, half-parlyzed fingers. Once more he's rewarded, and in a much more impressive way this time, a cloak of green and orange flame whoomph-ing into existence around him. He gets slowly to his too-sharp feet and takes off with an impressive burst of speed, barrelling straight for Jonathan.

Then he trips and faceplants in a crater, digging an impressive, but ultimately harmless, furrow in the disturbed earth.

Jonathan can't hide a small smirk. Sure, he didn't even try to move, but by not moving at least he didn't try and fail to hit a completely stationary target.

Psyfox can't help but be disappointed that his roar didn't send The Rock whimpering off to hide somewher, but no matter. He's prepared to follow that up with a far more impressive attack, waving his fingers back and forth and hoping, hoping for some kind of nuclear strike attack. Maybe precipice blades? Even a good hyper beam would be fine.

Instead wind starts whipping up around the abra, surrounding him in a whistling column of air streaked through with glowing bands of energy. The razor wind's growing, and growing, but not quite ready to unleash just yet.

USB Charger, meanwhile, is struggling with his own attack. He'd love to switch out of battle, really, but there simply isn't anyone to pass his role off to. The red energy of a baton pass attack flickers and flares around him for a few seconds, then dies away, unspent.

The elekid's frustration, though, is nothing compared to Dreamling's and Jonathon's. The abra pounds her fists against the ground, angrier than ever and that much farther from being able to muster up a metronme, and the togepi still hasn't moved--doesn't look like he's going to be moving anytime soon. Random Number Degenerate sends a petulant vacuum wave his way, the lightning-fast burst of fighting energy rolling the togepi over on his other side but ultimately not doing much damage, despite the ruinous state of his shell armor.

Giving up at last on her crush claw, Goldeneye at last decides it's time to roll the dice again and sets off another metronome. This time she's rewarded with an attack that doesn't need quite so much physical activity to work properly. A high-pitched whining buzz emanates from the sableye's throat, loud enough to pierce even the howling winds gathering around Psyfox. The abra clutches his head, wincing, as the droning noise goes on and on. The razor wind falters, dies back for a moment, but Psyfox manages to grit his teeth and get it back together once Goldeneye's bug buzz finally dies away.

The Rock, meanwhile, really thinks Dreamling needs to chill and stop making such a scene. The geodude takes a deep breath, chilling the air to subzero temperatures in his dark, rocky interior before blowing out a concentrated blast of freezing-cold air. Dreamling does stop a moment, shivering uncontrollably as the frost breath attack cuts straight to her core, but ultimately it'll take more than that to bring her out of her irrational anger. About all that changes is that she turns to start railing at The Rock instead of at nothing in particular.

Psyfox's razor wind is at last complete, roaring and twisting around him with gale-force winds, glowing top to bottom with nascent energy. The abra raises his arms and at last releases it, sending the twister racing across the arena at Goldeneye. The light and airy sableye is sucked into the twister, spun around and swept across the arena by the attack. It leaves her on the ground dizzy and out of sorts, but of course totally unharmed: the normal-type energy the whirlwind was made up of couldn't do more than annoy her.

USB Charger still isn't having any luck with his attacks. Another metronome leaves him with the overwhelming urge to give something away, to present someone with a gift. But... what? At a loss, the elekid finally picks up a rock from the ground. Does anyone want this rock? Anyone...?

Dreamling doesn't want a stupid rock. All she wants is to finally get a chance to attack. The frustrated abra fills the air with psychic static, her species' equivalent of yelling, and floats in erratic circles, trying ever harder and with ever less sucess to get another metronome going. Perhaps it's in some sense a mercy, then, that Goldeneye, a little turned around after getting blown across the arena, accidentally decides to get her revenge on Dreamling instead of Psyfox.

The sableye opens her mouth wide, but this time it's no little buzz that comes out. It's a great, crashing howl, like a thousand clocks striking the hour at once, and it brings the battle to a halt for a moment. Perhaps it's because the other pokémon are stunned and in awe, or maybe it's the temporal distortions rippling across the arena that make it difficult for anyone to do anything except hold tight and wait for it to pass. The roar goes on and on as the park ripples and distorts as though it's no more than an out-of-sync TV signal. Sometimes it's whole and green, sometimes it's cratered and half-frozen, and sometimes it's not even a city park, just towering forest or barren wasteland. Dreamling catches the worst of it, of course, by turns a tiny abra and a craggy, ancient alakazam, then a kadabra and alakazam and abra and kadabra again. Hairline fractures run across Dreamling's armor as reality starts to tear apart at the center of the roar of time, and all the abra's different incarnations clutch their heads, yelling uselessly into the howl of distorting timespace.

Then, at last, it ends. Goldeneye's mouth snaps closed, and she sits down smartly, extremely pleased with herself but ready for a bit of a break now. Dreamling collapses in a heap, and the other pokémon, some of them inexplicably feeling a little older or a little younger than they were before, stay quiet, waiting to make sure the weirdness truly is over.

The roar of time is something of a call to arms for Jonathon. His muscles finally loosen a bit, enough for him to start in on a metronome at least, but more than that, the togepi finds himself imbued with a new sense of determination. There's no use lying around feeling sorry for himself. He still has a chance to win this battle--he's in better shape than Dreamling, shot through with temporal fissures, that's for sure--and even if he doesn't, well, at least he ought to have a bit of fun.

The resolve warms him from inside, growing hotter and hotter as his fingers wave back and forth. Jonathon gets slowly to his feet, a seething ball of fire growing in the air over his head. It revolves as it grows, jets of flame breaking away from the main ball to briefly orbit and then sinking back into the main attack. The fusion flare grows and grows to at least three times Jonathon's size. The togepi hurls it forward with a yell, and it soars through the air to land, with a fiery explosion and ringing shockwave, directly on top of the Rock.

The geoded reappears from the center of the fiery blast with both arms covering his craggy face. After a second he peeks out from behind them, then gives a vigorous flex and lets out a powerful yell. Legendary attack, huh? Ha! He barely felt that! And indeed, though extensively scorched, he doesn't seem badly injured--by the fusion flare, at least. The chipped, soaked, scorched, and battered geodude has certainly seen better days.

And as the round began with a roar, so does it end: this time it's Random Number Degenerate who opens his miniscule mouth and lets out an almighty howl. Psyfox flinches despite himself--okay, there's simply no way a tiny little cleffa should be making a noise like that. He drifts a little farther away from Random Number Degenerate, telling himself that it's only prudent to be wary of an unstable pokémon like that.

Terrain Notes
A huge crater marks the center of the battlefield. Around the edges are a few shattered bushes and trees, some still on fire, some still with a thin casing of ice clinging to their branches. A strange rift in spacetime hangs in the air, shimmering and warping reality around it. Looking at it head-on invites madness.

Final Notes
- Okay, let's get going! It's been quite a while, so for this round, I'll say one week for your next set of (painstakingly planned, I'm sure) commands!

Health: 18%
Energy: 62%
Commands: Metronome x3
- Badly shaken, but at least not raging any longer. -1 Attack

Making sure to position himself well away from Degenerate, Psyfox starts up another metronome. After being more than a little disappointed by the outcome of his carefully-nurtured razor wind, Psyfox is pleased to see ice gathering on his carapace as his next metronome ticks on. None of his opponents can shrug off ice! And, ultimately, it's Degenerate who takes the freezing attack, and he definitely feels it, letting out a cheep of surprise as frost rimes his fur and his disconcertingly blade-like arms glitter with a new edge of ice.

Meanwhile, USB Charger, too, is having more luck than he was in the previous round. The despondent elekid finally gave up on bestowing a present on anyone and sat down, looking dejectedly at his claws as they started to twitch again. Now he's starting to realize, though, the sun... the sun that still shines even on this ravaged, half-frozen and warped arena... it feels nice, doesn't it? USB Charger squints up at the brilliant sky overhead, unable to suppress a small smile. Yes, maybe it isn't so bad after all. Even if he doesn't do so well in this one little battle, there's still plenty to look forward to, isn't there? The sun's healing light suffuses USB Charger's entire body, combining with his own energy to heal wounds large and small, leaving him almost fighting fit. By now the little electric-type is outright grinning, drained but elated and feeling like his luck may finally have turned.

Something must be in the air, because Dreamling, too, is overcome by the sudden and overwhelming urge to swoop down on The Rock and smother him with kisses, despite her fatigue and considerable injuries. (Perhaps the temporal fissure let through an alternate version of her that's a little more flirtatious.) The Rock lets out a grunt of surprise--he was kind of wondering why none of the women were flinging themselves at his sexy body, but by this point he'd completely given up on earning their appreciation. The geodude hops around to face his smitten opponent, but the soporific effects of Dreamling's kiss overtake him before he can so much as say something to her. The geodude looks even more boulder-like than usual with his eyes closed and limbs limp on the ground, dreaming sweet dreams while Dreamling drifts away from him again, quietly hoping the metronome isn't going to go to her head like that again.

Jonathon's still riding high from the success of his fusion flare last round, and his paralyzed muscles can't hold him back, although the strange attack that metronome plucks from the aether isn't quite as spectacular as he'd like. The arena shimmers with a strange irridescence, almost as though the field and its inhabitants have been dipped in some kind of soap-bubble film, but the attack's effects aren't readily apparent. Jonathon sits back and contemplates his handiwork, not overly impressed, but hey, at least it's pretty?

Meanwhile The Rock slumbers, Goldeneye relaxes, content with her performance last round, and a green bubble of energy flickers into place around Random Number Degenerate, only to vanish just as quickly. The chilly togepi frowns, unamused. Protect, really? Oh, very helpful.

The lull in the battle lasts a bit longer as Psyfox's next metronome leaves her with a lovely floating feeling. Of course, she was already floating, her limbs being too weak to carry her full weight even when she hasn't been through a rough battle, but at least the electrolevitate means she doesn't have to spare any concentration on keeping herself aloft.

It's USB Charger who breaks the armistice, albeit unintentionally: after all, it's metronome that gives him both the idea and the capability to gather the energy he needs for his next attack, compressing it into an egg-like shape between his claws before hurling it at The Rock.

The egg bomb explodes spectacularly against the geodude's side, sending dirt showering down in a wide radius, but The Rock does nothing save let out an extremely loud snore.

Now Dreamling simply can't be having that. No one attacks her l--wait, what? The abra lets out an irritated pulse of psychic energy, like a mental shake of the head to clear it, and raises her ticking fingers in front of her face. Revise that to: USB Charger just came into a whole lotta health, and she wants in! Glowing bands of light stream between her and USB Charger, and Dreamling rises slightly higher in the air even as USB Charger slumps, his health flowing into her body.

Dreamling stretches luxuriously, feeling her strength return as the rents in her armor disappear and strained muscles fill with new energy. Her celebration is cut short when Random Number Degenerate slams into her from behind, one tiny, unsettlingly-sharp foot extended as he makes a flying leap. Dreamling lands facedown in the dirt, drained from the effort of stealing away USB Charger's health and now smarting from Degenerate's unexpected attack.

Meanwhile, Goldeneye's spent the entire round walking back over to the main fight. It's a lot of effort to come all that way just to let USB Charger know that she doesn't appreciate him picking on helpless enemies, either, but Goldeneye is nothing if not dedicated. The sableye grins at USB Charger, who's shivering from the effects of the pain split attack, and retches loudly before vomiting a bilious load of goo all over him. The tingling gastro acid makes USB Charger shake even worse, but at least the attack didn't actually hurt. Apparently the poor electric-type's good luck wasn't exactly long-lived.

Jonathon's dying to get an attack in on USB Charger, too. The eternally put-upon elekid is almost too good a target. Alas, paralysis problems stop him once again, and he's forced to simply watch and wait while his opponents have their fun.

Dreamling's sudden fit of affection seems to be catching, because now it's Psyfox who feels the urge to cuddle up to one of his opponents. The abra descends on Goldeneye before the sableye can retreat again, nuzzling her cheek in a flash of sparks. Goldeneye's indignant screech is cut off as paralysis takes hold, leaving her frozen with jaw dropped open.

This time, it's Dreamling who gets the subtle attack. The abra closes her eyes and concentrates, unleashing waves of supersonic energy at Jonathon, who's still struggling with his own paralysis. The togepi wobbles, going vaguely cross-eyed, then tips over on his side. Somewhat miraculously, however, the application of supersonic appears to have broken out of his paralytic fit, and he's able to set off another metronome despite his confusion.

Somewhat to his surprise, Jonathon springs to his feet and dashes at Degenerate, paralysis forgotten in the grip of metronome's power. With a slightly confused battle cry the togepi does a sliding tackle on Degenerate, who falls over and promptly manages to stab himself with one of his sharpened arms. It's a somewhat awkward moment for all involved, as Jonathon is left rolling around on the ground, uncoordinated and periodically seizing up, while Degenerate sheepishly wipes his knifelike arm off on the ground. At least he rolls up a reasonable attack for his own metronome, a frigid wind blowing around the arena as his sharp little paws tick back and forth. The cleffa's opponents hunker down (or sleep, or stand there paralyzed, or roll in erratic circles), fearing another blizzard, but fortunately Degenerate's attack is far more mild. Still, the icy wind isn't exactly pleasant, and the other pokémon are left sluggish and shivering.

To USB Charger, this seems like an excellent time to put aside their differences and hold hands. Come on, it will warm people up a little. And this battle has already dragged on so long, and been so horrific, rifts in time and space and all--why don't they put all that aside, hold hands, and make up?

...doesn't anybody want to hold hands with him?

The elekid slumps back to a seated position, undeniably drooping. He's so tired of being the butt of jokes, of being rejected. To be honest, he's just... tired, in general and above all.

Meanwhile, not even the cold blast of icy wind can wake The Rock from his slumber. The geodude's face twists into a rime-frosted grimace, but he dreams on.

Terrain Notes
A huge crater marks the center of the battlefield. Around the edges are a few shattered bushes and trees, some still on fire, some still with a thin casing of ice clinging to their branches. A strange rift in spacetime hangs in the air, shimmering and warping reality around it. Looking at it head-on invites madness.

Final Notes

Hang in there, Jonathon! You have my leave to Chill for a little bit until your confusion wears off a bit. After that, let's try dealing some killing blows to your opponents with Sheer Cold, or healing yourself a bit with Recover.

First of all, the raccoon ran away as the lasagna splattered all over and was loud as hell, and second, my shoe was covered in lasagna. True story.
