Round eleven

Firestrike is left feeling even more concerned when Rift abruptly begins coughing and hacking, as if her throat is filled with phlegm or something. Wait, can that even happen to ghosts…? As Firestrike is left wondering, Rift takes the opportunity to spit a nasty glob of purple venom all over his chest. Firestrike nearly jumps a mile, paralysis or no, and struggles wildly to get the corrosive liquid off him.
Rift’s sympathy begins to set in again as she sees the poison burning into his adorable little feathers, sizzling nastily as it makes its way into his bloodstream. Eventually, the panicking Firestrike is forced to give up his pointless attempts to shake off the toxins, and he settles down for a break. He tries his best to make himself comfortable and ignore the horrible feeling of the poison in his body, though he also finds himself fretting over Rift’s feelings towards him. Does she not like his style anymore? She basically vomited all over his adorably fluffy coat. She’s obviously implying something here.

As Firestrike is left lost in his thoughts, Rift looms over him once again, trying not to think of how she ruined his coat. Although her painful burn stops her from being too sympathetic. She glowers at the unsuspecting Torchic, trying to look as creepy as possible, and her wide eyes glow an eerie red again.
Firestrike looks up in time to see the Haunter send another beam of cloudy ghost energy streaming towards him. He winces as the unpleasant chill ruffles his feathers and forces him backwards, leaving him feeling quite shivery and slightly spooked. This really isn’t endearing.

By this point, Rift can’t help feeling surprised at Firestrike’s continued lack of retaliation. In fact, she’s starting to wonder if she was maybe a little too harsh there… Firestrike is just sitting there all peacefully, with the occasional hurt looking glance in her direction. The glance is enough to stop the ghost’s glowering, and when she approaches him again, she’s noticeably lost a lot of her former bravado.
Nevertheless, she sends another ghostly beam of energy streaming towards him, and Firestrike gives a panicked chirp as the coldness washes over him again.
Shivering, Firestrike turns away from Rift with a hurt and annoyed look. Taking a rest sounds like a good idea at this point...
However, before he can make a move, the watchful referee begins yelling something about illegal moves and other gibberish that Firestrike could care less about. He's tempted to defy the ref anyway, but a whack on the head with a rolled up newspaper deters him. He scowls over at the referee, resisting the urge to set him on fire.
Rift surveys their antics with some amusement, and gives a small chuckle despite her own discomfort.

Arena notes

The ground is severely cracked all around, and there are two large craters near where Rage was floating. The ground inside the arena is littered with fragments of glass and a few large pieces of metal, along with the remains of some rare artifacts. A shelf has fallen over alongside battling area, and all of the artifacts on it are lying on the ground, some of them intact and some of them completely destroyed. There is some blackened concrete and artifacts in a five-foot blast radius from where the bottle shattered against Rage.

Battle notes

- Direct recovery moves are banned.
- Sorry, I meant to say I didn't know how many exp points Rift had at the start of the fight. Any exp she gained after this battle started wouldn't count. Anyway, I asked Negrek about it and neg said to go with 50 base power. The last round was edited accordingly.
- Superbird attacks first.

All right, Firestrike, let's go all out. Fire Blast all the way. If Rift uses Double Team, then Heat Wave instead. Feint if it protects or makes itself absolutely unhittable in any way.

Fire Blast/Heat Wave/Feint x3

Health: 23%

Round 12 Begin!

Firestrike begins to attack, still wondering about Rift's feelings towards him. However, Rift solidifies all of Firestrike's thoughts as she rushes up to him and gives him a swift punch to the side of the face in a vain attempt to stop his attack. Seriously angry at the punch, Firestrike continues his attack. The fire building in his mouth, hightened in intensity by his internal fire going into overdrive, approaches an incredible temperature. Firestrike, no longer attracted to Rift in the slightest, fires off a large blast of fire straight at Rift's face. Not having enough time to get out of the way, Rift watches in horror as the huge fireball hits her, exploding into a brilliantly bright five pointed star. The flames burn for several seconds before exstinguishing themselves in the air, leaving smoke that smells of burnt poison in the air.

Rift, infuriated and slightly panicked, watches Firestrike intensely. The air around him begins to heat up again, and Rift senses another blast of fire is about to be launched at her. She rushes up to Firestrike, knowing that this is her last chance to win this match. She swings her ghostly fist at him in an uppercut, which hits him in the jawa nd sends him reeling back in pain. But, he doesn't fall. Rift has no choice but to watch in horror as the flames in Firestrike's mouth intensify again. He opens his mouth, and funnels the stress of the entire battle into this last attack. The last travels fast, and is easily twice as big as the first one. The fire once again hits Rift and erupts into a flaming star, burning her form almost completely. After the fire clears, Rift falls to the ground, unable to move.

Round 12 End!

As Burn Heals, Antidotes, Mental Herbs and Hyper Potions are used, The Ref has the competitors shake hands. A good day, as all is concerned; a building destroyed and a battle ended. Speaking of destroyed buildings, the ref hastily hands out prozes and bids the competitors farewell as he sends out a gallade and Teleports away, not wanting to get caught. The guards should be arriving sometime soon, but the ref doesn't want to stay around to find out. Taking their money and pokemon, the Steele and Superbird run out with ninjalike stealth, leaving a destroyed warehouse behind.

Ref's Notes:
-Back for the last round. wut.
-The Sucker Punches were 1% less damaging due to the burn.
-As if to add insult to injury, the second Fire Blast was a critical hit.

Prizes:
Superbird gets $16 and Steele gets $6. I get $10. As for experience, Dokon receives 1 Exp. Point, Rage receives 2, Rift receives 1, and Firestrike receives 3. (for knocking out both Rage and Rift.) Good match, guys.

Yes! It worked! Awesome job, Firestrike!

...And to you, Steele—that was a fantastic battle, and I really had a lot of fun! And for while there, I thought you had me! Good game, anyhow.

And Blade—Thank you so much for reffing this mess! I really appreciate your effort! And your help, Byrus!
