sorry i'm taking so long, university is kicking my ass

i'm feeling uninspired, so counter thief with sucker punch and hope that it startles her - do it all three actions if it'll stop her from using Thief. If Nesama does manage to grab your Marvel Scale, just go grab the Dusk Stone instead; I'm sure it'll come in handy or something. You should wear it like a pretty crown!!!! If you've got the Dusk Stone and there's still an action left, use Trick Room so we can move last again.

-BEGIN ROUND 7-

Clunk went the Dusk Stone as it dropped, waking the referee from her long slumber. And ssssssh it went as it slid down the slope, eventually catching on a stealth rock. Nesama had ditched her item, eyeing instead the Prism Scale that glowed in Komorebi's left claw. The latter hunched down suspiciously, but Nesama was undeterred from her attack. As she saw her opponent shroud herself in dark energy for her next attack, Komorebi saw an opportunity to strike, and seized it. Stiffness from the thunder wave made it difficult, but she lept up and punched Nesama square in the face before Nesama could even react to her movement. Determined to make the best of the situation, Nesama rushed down after her opponent as soon as she landed. Tendrils of dark type energy lashed around her and slapped Komorebi. She reeled, rubbing her one claw with the other as their scales turned black. It was only then that she noticed they were both empty, and she shot an outraged glare toward Nesama, who hovered giggling with the Prism Scale.

[Komorebi- HP: 93%, PP: 82%; Dark type.] [Nesama- HP: 34%, PP: 32%]

Nesama's giggles quickly turned to a low chanting. Another hex was laid, and a familiar purple and red glow emanated from Komorebi's entire body. She grabbed at the spot where she had been burned before, but she was coping with the attack much better than her predecessor had. Nevertheless, she found herself changing colour again, as scales in patches all over her body began turning a dark violet.

Komorebi resolved to work through the pain, since it was so mild. She turned away from her opponent and scampered down the deck toward what was formerly Nesama's Dusk Stone. Paralysis made it difficult not to trip, but with some concentration she managed. As the hex faded, she lifted the stone and made it Komorebi's Dusk Stone. She tried to balance it on her head for a moment as her trainer suggested, but she gave up after she nearly dropped it and let it slide further into the facility's interior.

[Komorebi- HP: 83%, PP: 81%; Ghost type.] [Nesama- HP: 34%, PP: 27%]

Nesama burst into a raucous laughter at Komorebi's fumbling with her item. What an idiot! What was she trying to do, wear it like a crown? It's not a flower! You can't just bend a rock! Tears were shed by both battlers; from Nesama as she feigned an attempt to restrain her laughter, and from Komorebi as she took the teasing to heart. But Komorebi's tears were not of embarassment; no, they were of rage. How dare she insult her trainer's fashion recommendations! If her trainer asked her to wear a plastic shopping bag as a glove, she would at least humour her! It's what Pokémon do! Her orders were to use Trick Room now that she had one last action, but those had been long forgotten. She was determined to walk up there and give Nesama a piece of her- Crack.

As Komorebi walked upward, she stepped on the dull edge of a loose stealth rock. The force of her hind leg dislodged the rock and sent her tumbling forward. She faceplanted and rolled downhill a bit before gripping a patch of moss. She believed she righted herself upon it, but from an outside perspective you couldn't tell. She had clearly hit her head hard when she slipped, and the log roll downward didn't relieve any of the dizziness. She held her free claw to her head to try and stabilize it, but she seemed to be in rough shape at the round's end.

notes:
-Sucker Punch's description is pretty vague with "this attack may disrupt the opponent's attack," so I treated it as a 15% flinch chance.
-I noticed many arithmetic errors in the previous reffing, but all but one was simply a typo in the numbers section. Komorebi's health has been edited because 100 - 4 != 94.
-Sucker Punch cost an extra 1% energy to perform and fetching the Dusk Stone cost 1% energy because of Komorebi's paralysis.
-Komorebi hurt herself in confusion in the last round; as with EXPLOSION WEDNESDAY I'm calling the attack boost and burn to reduce to 1% damage.
-Stealth Rocks are scattered about the deck.

whooops ok let's go with some quickly put-together commands:

Go on the offensive with Shadow Ball and Feint Attack. If Nesama uses something like Double Team or Substitute - something that boosts her - we wanna Snatch it. Otherwise, if Nesama isn't around or you can't hit her, just Chill for a bit, bby. It's okay.

Nesama was displeased with her orders this round. Done enough? She had plenty of fight left in her! She was getting a little worn down, true, but she'd hardly even started putting a dent in the new meat! Orders were orders, though. She stifled her laughter, and put her irritation to good use. She bared her teeth and let out a low growl. Komorebi, seeing this, had some of the wind taken out of her sails. Maybe she wouldn't march straight up to this one... Oh well, she thought, she could do just as much damage from down here. She took advantage of her new ghost typing, channeling its energies into a pulsating ball. Gracelessly, she took the unstable orb and flung it overhead at Nesama, smacking it hard into her face.

[Komorebi- HP: 77%, PP: 78%] [Nesama- HP: 19%, PP: 22%]

... Okay, Nesama thought, beginning to see her trainer's point. That attack did sting pretty hard, and she wasn't sure she could take another. She bared her teeth again, putting real effort into it this time. Komorebi wasn't so sure she wanted to approach at all now, but her trainer at least made things a little easier. She shrouded herself in darkness once more, darting between the small shadows of the scattered rocks and shrapnel. It was all she could do not to tense up or lose her balance at the very end, but she managed to leap up and hit Nesama before she could even react.

[Komorebi- HP: 77%, PP: 75%] [Nesama- HP: 13%, PP: 21%]

Nesama was amazed to have lasted through that attack, and let out one last intimidating bark before Komorebi went running on all fours back to her trainer's side of the deck. There, Komorebi summoned one more ball of unstable ghost-type energy and let it loose. The orb crashed into Nesama and she fell to the deck, vanquished at last.

Sorry, Nesama :c I'll be sending out Syler now!

Let's just go with Air Slash, Venoshock, Air Slash. If they're fully paralyzed or confused, set up a 20% sub, only once of course; and if there are clones, spread your attack around until you hit the right one. If you can't hit your target /at all/ because of protect or w/e, set up a sub if you haven't already, or Nasty Plot if you've already got a sub.

-BEGIN ROUND 9-

Syler stretched his wings wide amid the glow of his release. Komorebi hunched down to assess her new opponent, who simply hovered in the air before her. She expected some kind of attack as soon as Syler came out to face her, but none came. There was an awkward 30 seconds of no sound but the intermittent flap of Syler's wings and the caws of distant Wingull before Komorebi realised her opponent was waiting for her. At that point, she decided to simply let it all out. Her scales reverted to their default green and yellow, making plain her sickly face and swelling burns. She charged headlong into Syler, hopped up, and smacked him out of the air. She landed on top of him and pinned down one wing by standing on it, while mercilessly punching and clawing at the upper half of his face. Syler screeched, and wrested himself free. A few flaps into the air, he took one swift motion to face Komorebi and slash a wing through the air with blinding speed. The wake from it was strong enough to be visible as a distorted crescent in the air. Komorebi blocked most of its a blow on her arm, but it stung nevertheless. Her scales instinctively shifted their hue as she lowered her arms, and she looked over at Syler and noticed a faint glow as the glob of sludge tied to his leg began to seep into his body.

[Komorebi- HP: 63, PP: 64; Flying type.] [Syler- HP: 91, PP: 96]

Komorebi was not in the mood to stand through further awkward silences, and so charged ahead once more. She grabbed onto Syler's foot and pulled, not caring or noticing whether she brought him down to her or her up to him. She just grabbed, gnawed, and scratched her illness-inspired rage out onto her victim. Syler shook his legs in a vain effort to remove her. Komorebi's blows may have been softened by the burns across her arm, but they were still fierce, and she still had the grip her species was famous for. The attack dragged on and on before Syler finally let out a hiss and glared down at her with jaws open wide. Komorebi backed off then, but too late. Syler made a hacking sound, and spat out an enormous stream of noxious, purple fluid. The smell of it hit Komorebi nearly as hard as as the attack itself did. She stumbled as the liquid struck her back and seeped slowly through her skin. The stench of the attack suddenly took on a burning quality in her nose, a burning that spread rapidly throughout every vein and capillary of her body. Her scales reactively took a dark violet hue around her face to hide how pale the skin underneath was becoming.

[Komorebi- HP: 47, PP: 56; Poison type.] [Syler- HP: 82, PP: 94]

Syler flapped his wings as close to silently as he could while he watched and waited for Komorebi to act. After around the third beat, she fell face first with no apparent cause. Her limbs were stiff as boards, leaving her unable to so much as lift a finger to catch herself. In her mind, she was raging and cursing up a storm: goddammit, just as I was starting to feel better too! Why can't we catch a break here?! The blow to her head brought her closer to her senses this time, at least, and by the time she got up her limbs would feel remarkably more limber.

Syler, meanwhile, was fairly confident that Komorebi would not be getting back up to interrupt for a while. He glided over to the remains of Nesama's substitute at the bottom of the Sea Mauville's slope, and landed with a dignified air. With the tip of a wing, he nudged the scrap metal around until it vaguely resembled himself, lying on the floor. With a noble "ahem," he lifted a wing, and gave his effigy the touch of life. Green wisps of his health flowed from his core to the spot were he'd tapped the metal. Slowly, the pieces drew themselves closer to each other, and the crude sculpture began to look less crude. The doll then sprang to life, and took flight with its master. The two headed back to their opponent, who bizarrely looked more confident and ready to battle than ever, despite the tumble she'd taken. It was a remarkable game face: one could hardly tell how ill she felt, or how badly her burns still stung.

Well komorebi, I think you're due for a change - let's use Skill Swap and try out Inner Focus for a bit. Sounds like fun, right? In your second action, let's start work on that substitute and use Thunderbolt and then Ice Beam. If you don't manage Skill Swap on your first action, keep trying until it works. Use Facade on the first action if you're Taunted.

Skill Swap/Facade ~ Skill Swap/Thunderbolt ~ Skill Swap/Ice Beam.

Okay, I'm not loving that Skill Swap, so Mimic it and then use it to revert your abilities back. Finish with a Zen Headbutt.

Field Notes
-The Prism Scale and several pointy bits of metal are scattered about the deck.

Round 10

Komorebi stares calmly at Syler, and Syler stares calmly at Komorebi, and still the next round has not yet begun. But a sudden warping of space informs the battlers that the round should be begun, and the battlers begin the round. Looking as calm as ever despite the various scars crisscrossing her body, Komorebi eyes her opponent to see if he'll make any strange moves. Seeing that the Golbat seems only to be watching her intently, she concentrates on copying the energy traces of Syler's innate imperturbability and of her own capability to camouflage by changing the colors of her individual scales. The Kecleon's eyes glow a slight pink as she transfers Syler's energy to herself while simultaneously moving her displaced abilities to the Golbat's energy signature. For just a moment, the two abilities take physical form as an orb of pink and an orb of white, zooming away from their original owners before seemingly being absorbed into their opponents' heads. Now conscious of the smallest stirrings of the shrapnel surrounding them, Komorebi grins as her opponent screeches in surprise and flaps about wildly in an attempt to compensate for his sudden loss of calm.

Completely weirded out, Syler takes a deep breath and lands before running one wing along his suddenly iridescent skin, watching closely as individual spots turn more purple or more blue. Although he doesn't have any idea how Komorebi reached into his mind to switch such inner characteristics, Syler is still in touch with his innate energy, and figuring out how Komorebi's works is just one step to changing both of them back to normal. He pokes his wing one more time, trying to understand the mechanisms behind the Kecleon's ability, and suddenly feels a slight mental shift as the spot he touched turns a dark gray. Soon, he pinpoints Komorebi's foreign energy signature and smirks; that lizard won't know what's coming. The Golbat tries to remember how the mental intrusion felt and painstakingly pushes his opponent's ability away from himself while tugging on his own. The pink and white energy spheres appear again, but instead of gliding easily forward they move much more haltingly and sometimes flicker as Syler takes a moment to rest. Finally, the orbs come back to their original Pokemon, and Syler becomes aware of his normal tranquility again with a relieved sigh.

Deprived of her hard-earned serenity, Komorebi pats at her charred purple skin frantically, gazing in horror at the whitish spots that appear and then fade. What did that Golbat do?! The Kecleon builds up charge in one hand before sending it in a crackling arc towards Syler, but the innocuous, slightly-Golbat-shaped hunk of scrap metal sitting on the floor under him jumps in the way at the last moment. The electricity carves a large chunk of the quasi-Golbat's wing away with an ear-wrenching screech and leaves a large char mark on the rest, but the remnants of Syler's substitute straighten up despite the black scar and flap upwards as best they can to defend their creator from further attacks.

Affronted by the sudden attack on his doll, Syler closes his eyes and prepares to calmly meditate on his calmness, which he so calmly rescued from that dastardly, uncalm Kecleon. Soon, a sparkling blaze of Psychic energy appears around the Golbat's entire body, and he flaps forwards before slamming into Komorebi. The Kecleon winces as the calming energy eats away at her toxic constitution, before recollecting herself as her scales turn pink and rearrange themselves. Syler sticks his tongue out at her and then spins showily away—but Komorebi isn't just going to let something like that go unanswered. Building up a light blue ball in her mouth that's enhanced by her pilfered Dusk Stone, the Kecleon fires it at the Golbat and watches in satisfaction as his poor substitute leaps in the way again. The scrap metal and Ice energy collide in a blue flash before one dissipates and the other falls lifelessly to the floor. Both battlers, tired but satisfied, lock eyes again, more ready than ever to end the match.

Ty again for taking this ;n;

Okie Syler, I think we can finish this soon. Let's go for Shadow Balls all round, swapping to Feint Attack if you're tormented or there are clones. If you can't hit at all for any reason, be it protect or... something else, just Nasty Plot I s'pose.

Shadow Ball / Feint Attack / Nasty Plot x3

Round 11

As the round begins, Komorebi calmly arches an eyebrow at her opponent, who seems to be building up a flickering mass of spiritual energy. Hah! It seems Syler's calm facade has finally slipped. He'll never be as calm as she is! crows the smirking Kecleon to herself. Doesn't that Golbat know Ghost moves don't affect—and then the ethereal sphere slams into her, eating away at the pink scales even as they rearrange themselves into a faint, nearly-see-through indigo. …Right. Dammit. Picking herself off the floor with a grunt, Komorebi sighs. It doesn't feel like she'll be able to take another one of those, if that one was anything to go by, and now she's semisolid to boot.

But the dark purple stone tied around Komorebi's neck lends her strength, and she clutches it with one not-quite-corporeal hand as a blaze of white appears around her. The Kecleon tries to ignore the strange feeling of Normal energy dancing across a Ghost's skin and the remaining nausea and irritation from her poisoning and burns, and charges at Syler. This time there's no substitute to protect him from her reckless leap, and she clutches desperately at the Golbat's wildly thrashing wings with both hands and a leg as she pummels him with her other limbs, flailing about with her tongue and free foot.

Finally, completely spent despite continually absorbing energy from his Black Sludge, Syler stops struggling for just a few seconds and pays for it dearly: Komorebi manages to get a firm grip on him and flicks her tail like a whip to bring him down before pinning him to the ship's deck. The Golbat screeches in pain as grains of sand and shards of metal dig into his wings as the Kecleon pounds him ferociously from above, but he soon regains his wits and thinks up a plan to get out of the sticky situation. Sensing when Komorebi lets up just a little, Syler uses his weight advantage to fling the Kecleon off with a coordinated swing and flap back into the air, grinning as Komorebi struggles to stand back up on the other side of the deck.

As quickly as he can, he builds up another ghostly sphere between his fangs and fires the orb at the still-stunned Kecleon, who doesn't see it coming. Imbued with conflicting spiritual energy to Komorebi's ghostly exterior, the Shadow Ball collides with her and burns away the last of her protective scales before dissipating as the Kecleon simply collapses, the last of her energy gone. Ecstatic, Syler flaps back to his trainer, who shakes hands with its opponent as the referee summons a league-owned Abra to just get everyone out of here before the Hoennese police arrive.

Currently: All aflutter with glee. (Unnervingly uncalm, if I do say so myself.)
Used: Shadow Ball ~ Shadow Ball

Field Notes
-The Prism Scale and several pointy bits of metal are scattered about the deck.

Action Notes
-Random reffing trivia: Golbat is actually more than twice as heavy as Kecleon. Who knew?
-Komorebi's Last Resort was a critical hit.
-Komorebi fainted on the second action.

calcs
Komorebi: 40 - 12 (Shadow Ball) - 1 (burn) - 2 (poison) - 12 (Shadow Ball) = 0
43 - 8 (Last Resort) = 35
Syler: 66 - 20 (Last Resort) + 1 (Black Sludge) = 47
73 - 5 (Shadow Ball) - 5 (Shadow Ball) = 63


That's all, folks! Good game, everyone. pathos gets $16, ultraviolet gets $8, and I get $5 since I was an e-ref; Meursault can pick up the other $5 whenever they want, though I'm not exactly sure how that works. As for experience, Komorebi, Nesama, and Syler get 2 exp/happiness, and the last two can evolve, while EXPLOSION WEDNESDAY gets 2 exp and 1 happiness - correct me on these if I got something wrong.
