Round Ten

Lord of the Fireflies
monferno| sneasel
corsola
Moonflower
Corsola (F) [Hustle] @ Zoom Lens
Health: 100% | Energy: 90%
Condition:”feel my heatred!”
Rain Dance ~ Psychic (turn Yuzuko around + throw her in water) / Scald ~ Whirlpool / Scald

Meursault
gible |monferno
slakoth
Mawatari Yuzuko
Slakoth (F) [Truant] @ Expert Belt
Health: 86% | Energy: 100%
Condition:”What is life without loaf”
Solar Beam/Brick Break/loaf ~ Solar Beam/Power-Up Punch/Work Up ~ Solar Beam/Work Up/loaf


Yuzuko had to bide her time before she could reclaim glorious loaf. Meursault sighed. Every single time, every single battle. Whenever Yuzuko brought the loaf out in battle, she was captivated by it til the very end. Nothing could stop her, she even demanded to spend time with her loaf whenever possible. It’s like they were bread and raised together, they were inseparable. While all this ran through Meursault’s head, with a drop of water at the end to pull her out of it, Yuzuko was already whispering sweet nothings to her loaf. Something about baking in the warm heat of the sun, the blazing brilliance of the oven actualizing the internal seed process. She was brown too, like the loaf, she ventured, and her own stripes of fur glew like the seeds on the loaf.

And then it got soggy. Yuzuko’s gaze shot to the Corsola, who had fashioned a rainstick out of a piece of her coral. Her head dipped to one side, now overweight on one end. It looked like a lopsided smirk, and so it was. The glow of green that once dappled across her fur trickled away as the strands dampened, retreating from the water. She focused and focused, and the patch of green tried desperately to grow, but the beam wouldn’t show itself. Her eyes shut, she was unaware of the tightness her muscles were taking. Her limp body, barely under her own control, was making its own rules now. Moonflower quickly twisted the Slakoth around, her arms trailing behind her. The Corsola mused that she really was cleaning the rug. A fizzle of green light sprouted out of Yuzuko’s chest, and shot out just in time to tangle through the air and strike Moonflower across the head. It tapped against the hard coral between her eyes and bounced weakly to the ground, consumed by the growling water. Moonflower thought this was a good idea, and let Yuzuko follow the green trail. A flick of her mind, and a tumble to her side, and Moonflower had grabbed the Slakoth’s head and thrust it forwards and downwards. A heave backwards and she pushed her thoughts out of the emptiness inside the normal type’s mind, letting go of her foe and allowing the poor damp thing to plunge to even damper dampness.

Moonflower knew this was her element. She was a type of the water kind, raised by the reef like some individuals raised rooves. And now it was her turn to raise it. An effortless exercise for one so attuned with the water, especially in times of deluge and triumph like these. Her stubby arm pulled up, summoning a torrent of water. Like a vase being spun into shape, the glob of liquid wrapped itself around Yuzuko, smothering her in repeated splashes of water, before unfurling into a funnel. Yuzuko was at its peak, and she waved. Moonflower’s eyes turned to the dark, empty square on the ground where the loaf had printed itself, it was no longer there. Yuzuko caressed the beauty in her hands, purring softly as the whirlpool whipped about her.

Health: 77% | Energy: 85%
Condition: Trapped in a Whirlpool (3-4 more actions)
”the most painful thing is knowing this weather will stifle the growth of multigrain bread :c”
Solar ~ Beaaaam ~ waterloaf

Arena:
-Soggy bread for six more actions.

Rolls:
A3:
Whirlpool: Accuracy (30/100, HIT)
Calculations:

Moonflower’s Health:
99 – 1 (Stealth Rock) – 14 (Solar Beam) = 84%

Moonflower’s Energy:
90 – 5 (Sunny Day) – 10 (Psychic) – 1 (Whirlpool) = 74%

Mawatari Yuzuko’s Health:
84 – 6 (Whirlpool) – 1 (Whirlpool Residual Damage) = 77%

Mawatari Yuzuko’s Energy:
90 – 10 (Solar Beam) + 5 (loaf) = 85%


Notes:
-Sorry for the delay, was busy moving.
-Cheeky LotF, using Telekinesis without using Telekinesis. Charged a pretty high amount of energy for that maneuver though, and it did no damage. I’d say that you could use your unSTABed Psychics to either deal damage or cause movement. Turning to prepare for a throw is essentially one movement, as Yuzuko was just being readied to be thrown.
-Also because Psychic isn’t STAB for Corsola, she’d have to put in a bit more effort in convincing her grip to move around, so I let her take Stealth Rock damage for that action.
-I don’t think there’s a precedent for this, so in rain I would make it so every Solar Beam would be two action. With an added energy cost of 2% if it was ordered as a two action move.
-Slakoth and Corsola have a difference of 5 in base speed, so I let Yuzuko fire her Solar Beam just before she was moved.
-The battlers are pretty far off now, so contact moves from Moonflower will require a bit of a swim and some timing, and Yuzuko will require getting out of the whirlpool. Which in ASBpeak is extra energy or tricksy escapery, respectively.

-LotF to command.

For now, just wait on any action, using Scald as default, but Mirror Coat if she tries another Solarbeam and Magic Coating anything reflectable.

Scald / Mirror Coat / Magic Coat x3

you seem to have accounted for expert belt damage boost or truant damage boost, but not both... :x

well yuzuko, being stuck in a waterfall is, uh, mildly inconvenient. at least we can thunder with impunity from out here. and maybe if you loaf around just right, moonflower will mistake you for a piece of driftwood! oh, if you can tell that the first Thunder paralyzed her, use Shadow Ball instead with your magic rng powers.

Thunder ~ Thunder/Shadow Ball ~ bagel

"Use Thunder," a distant voice pleaded. "Please use Thunder," it said. "Please stop reenacting scenes from Titanic with a loaf of bread and use Thunder," it said. Mawatari Yuzuko could hear it clearly from where she was stranded, but she seemed not to heed it. ... However, when everyone least expected it, a bolt from the stormbound dark blue-grey ripped through the short distance between the clouds and the sandy coast, zapping clean through the hapless Corsola in its path, now surely regretting all those lightningrod-shaped bramches on her head. Was that Yuzuko's doing? It was hard to tell, as she still seemed pretty deeply engrossed in the loafplay.

Whatever that was, Moonflower wasn't having any of it. Aiming carefully into the distance with her Zoom Lens, she started firing bursts of boiling hot water, timed just right to smack the faraway Slakoth right as the swirling waters pulled her into the target spot. It was just like a minigame to her, and she was gunning for the high score. Being struck by lightning yet again threw off her aim for a spell, but she bounced back just fine.

As the round approached a close, Mawatari Yuzuko barely minded the horrid burn she'd gotten across the right side of her upper body as a result of all the scalding blasts -- it was finally time for her to focus 100% again on her precious... bagel? Impossible! When did the loaf she'd been holding onto turn into a lowly bagel? Many far-off crashes of thunder could be heard as the Slakoth roared and the maelstrom grew even more turbulent. Who did this? Why is this happening? Was it the sogginess taking effect? If it's the sogginess, Yukuzo is all set to walk backwards into hell and face god.

man, I sure hope I can get some paralysis happening this round, or I'll be pretty sourdough

Hit 'em with two Thunders as long as there's no Mirror Coat or Protect nonsense awaiting. If it's a Mirror Coat, Yawn at her, but if you can't hit her with Thunder for any other reason, just sit there and let your dough rise. She's gotta let you at her eventually.

Thunder/Yawn/loaf x3

EDIT: it wasn't mentioned in arena status or anything, so I'd like to point out that stealth rocks are definitely still up on LotF's side, yeah?

DQ warning for Lord of the Fireflies. This one's been in the dust for plenty a while, so let's give it 96 hours. (ETA: Slightly miscalculated the DQ time, so I guess that'd be... 144 hours. Oh well, warning's given.)
