a bulbasaur! grass/poison, 45 base speed. offensively, limited to normal, poison, grass, fighting, bug, ground. otherwise, capable of inflicting sleep, poison, both inaccurately.

so I will send out my mankey. you are encouraged to use something which will have useful effect when repeated, because what you do, we will watch, and request an encore. no, you can't refuse. try something flashy, eh? it would speed things up. once we've done that, we'll spite, whatever was used, repeatedly.

now, this will all go horribly wrong if it protects. (it really won't). in that case, we'll just take the action to set up good-sized substitute, and try again next time. but it won't because that would be pointless and get noting accomplished, and we'd still win anyway, am I right?

encore @ bulbasaur / substitute (20%) ~ encore @ bulbasaur / substitute (20%) / spite @ bulbasaur ~ encore @ bulbasaur / substitute (20%) / spite @ bulbasaur

Suspicious Crypt

This battle takes place in a spacious and mostly empty burial vault.

Recoil moves deal no recoil, but instead cost extra energy equal to twice the recoil which would have been taken.

Arena destruction is encouraged, as always.

Barubu (O)
bulbasaur
Naios Aettida (f) <overgrow>
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
- "Ehm..."

sreservoir (O)
mankey
Kergen (f) <vital spirit>
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
- "Eh."

Naios hesitates a moment, not expecting to attack first, and perhaps a just a bit terrified of the arena she's supposed to be battling in; but her commanded attack might make it a bit less unsettling. She shimmies a bit, and a soothing scent seeps out of her bulb, drifting over towards Kergen. The mankey's nose twitches at the smell, and she can't help but enjoy it - it's just a very lovely aroma! She calms down a bit, her twitchiness easing up. She enjoys it so much, in fact, that she claps her little hands in pure joy, begging for more. Naios blinks, but she's not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. Sure, she'll give the mankey some more, why not!

Kergen grins. She closes her eyes, digging mentally into the bulbasaur's thoughts, and blocks off the attack she'd just used - at least partially. It'll be slightly more annoying to use, which is Kergen's trademark. Naios shakes her bulb again, and for some reason she gets a bit winded this time - just a bit though. The same sweet scent drifts from the bulb towards Kergen, and the mankey sighs in delight; her plans are working and she gets to smell nice! Good day for her.

She does intend to make it harder to use, though, for reasons that are unclear to her because it seems like a great attack as far as she can tell. She blocks the attack off even further, and this time when Naios wiggles around she feels noticeably winded, like she'd just released a solarbeam or something significant. Still, she's feeling rather well overall, and Kergen is enjoying herself and the lovely smells drifting her way. They are lulling her into a feeling of safety, too, which is probably what Naios intended - probably - meaning she'll be easier to hit later on, if these sweet scents ever stop.

Barubu (O)
bulbasaur
Naios Aettida (f) <overgrow>

- "Sweet..." Evasion -3.

Arena Notes:
None.

Final Notes:
- I hate describing attacks that have no description of their appearance in the A&A guide.
- Barubu next.

Okay Naios, Toxic until it works. If and when you manage to hit her with it, switch to Sleep Powder until it works. If you somehow manage to do both of those things in the first two actions, hit her with a Seed Bomb. If she Protects at any point, use Curse.

I'm tempted to tell you to simply taunt that bulbasaur, and that would leave us with pretty much the whole round free to work on mad plans. but this one is going quite nicely already, and I'd really rather not interrupt it.

now, status conditions are ... well, poison wouldn't be too bad, but it would be a bit nicer if it simply didn't happen. not really even inconvenient; it would just ruin the image -- two pokémon sitting apart from each other in a tomb with a wonderful smell, one inexplicably knocked out. we'd much rather she continue releasing her scent. it's a nice scent, yes?

let her do so once more, but do continue sealing the move further -- get another spite in there first. then, we will ... request another encore, we might call it -- I'm sure you can find ways to praise that scent, it is wondrous -- as our ghostly curse saps away her energy to bring us a swift victory. afterward, continue on spite.

spite ~ encore ~ spite

it will be glorious if we succeed -- a battle completed in O(sqrt n) time, by only manipulation -- an example to the world! and if we fail ... we'll still win. the alternative is quite unlikely.

- "Sweet..." Evasion -3.

Kergen twitches, locking onto the scent she so adored and sealing it in her memory. She focused on Naios and for a split second, their minds linked together - only enough for Kergen's negative inclinations to plan themselves in Naios's mind. Kergen felt kind of bad, making Naios take so much effort for using such a pleasant attack, but orders are orders. She was just a soldier in a much larger war; it wasn't her business, whatever her trainer had in mind for this bulbasaur.

Naios blinked her tired eyes; for some reason, when trying to use sweet scent, she found some of the most nasty, hateful thoughts she'd ever had waiting for her. It definitely made her hesitate before using the attack; she really lost all desire to battle, with those sorts of ideas floating through her head... Still, she shook her little backside, loosening free some more sweet scent in Kergen's direction. The mankey sniffed the air excitedly; yay yay yay, more honey-sweet nectar! Kergen is really growing fond of Naios at this point. Sweet scent even moreso.

She claps her hands excitedly, as she'd done before, applauding Naios's work most enthusiastically. Naios eyes Kergen warily; she's definitely happy to have an appreciative audience, but she's growing tired of the sweet scents, not to mention those dark, invasive thoughts that surface whenever she goes to use it... But Kergen's urging is so persistent, Naios smiles reverently and nods, as if making a huge sacrifice; sure, she'll give the mankey some more sweet scent. Why not. Just a bit though. Kergen yips with glee, absolutely ecstatic; she's having so much fun, yay!

Naios ventures into the deeper pits of her mind once more, letting loose some of that oh-so-sought after sweet scent. Kergen sighs, letting herself fall into a contented trance; oh yes, that's it baby, that's the stuff... more of that, yeah, yeah... that's it.

Kergen snaps out of her reverie for a moment, remembering that she must, of course, make it more difficult for the bulbasaur to entrance her in the future. ... She's not sure why, but yes, orders are orders are orders... stupid trainer... she needs some independence. Later, though, she's too lazy now. For the moment, she locks minds with Naios, sinking in more nasty self-hating thoughts; just enough to make the use of sweet scent absolute masochism. And yet use it Naios does. The expression on the bulbasaur's face is completely pitiful; she looks like she's about to cry, her cheeks are all red (which does not go well with green at all), but she's fighting back her tears in a desperate attempt to appear battle-ready. While releasing savorous smells from her backside. Still, Kergen isn't complaining; she can't possibly become more relaxed. She's practically falling over backwards, her limbs are so loose, and the fact that she's yet to be physically threatened doesn't make her any more prepared for action.

makes little difference if encore does stop being useful, dammit, but screw that!

protect against any moves that damage you, or would cause a damaging status condition, if you didn't protect the previous action. in all other cases, first psych up if possible, then begin to spite anything the bulbasaur does.

protect / psych up / spite x 3

Start with a Tackle, make her Protect. Then, go with Sleep Powder. Can't very well Spite things if she's asleep. Finish off with a Toxic.

Kergen braces herself, preparing for whatever Naios has to throw at her. The bulbasaur takes the opportunity that's given to her, running at Kergen swiftly and readily, hoping to finally do some damage. Fortunately for Kergen, she's more than fast enough to react in time to set up a protective shield - and as Naios jumps at Kergen, ready to smack head-first into her target, she instead bounces harmlessly off a bright shimmering forcefield. Naios lands on her backside, tumbling over onto her stubby feet quickly, only her panting breath showing she's hurt at all; Kergen lets the protect shield fall, having done its job.

Again, Kergen waits anxiously on her opponent to see what she'll do. Another protect is evidently out of the question, meaning she'll probably psych up, if she can, though she's not sure why she wouldn't be able to... sometimes commands go over her head. It doesn't matter though because she doesn't have to wait long before Naios shakes her little bulb, releasing more spores Kergen's way; these spores, though, are bright white and not so nice-smelling. Kergen sniffs at them as they settle down on her fur, and blinks her eyes, maybe a bit drowsy - but the effects of the powder seem to have no impact on her. In fact, she simply shakes the stuff off her fur, wondering what it was exactly and why it wasn't as nice-smelling as the other powder.

No matter though! Kergen closes her eyes again, linking her thoughts when Naios as she had before. But instead of leaving any bad thoughts there, she instead grabs hold of whatever inherent or boosted abilities Naios has, studying them and taking them for herself. When she opens her eyes she's no longer quite as drugged as she was before, though the memory of the scent will haunt her forever.

Naios seems more than a little disappointed that her sleep powder didn't work. What with her opponent's lowered evasiveness, she seemed certain the mankey would fall asleep. But she was wide awake, and even more active than before without the effects of the sweet scent clouding her judgement. Naios frowned. She'll have to make do...

She bent down, pointing her bulb towards Kergen and squirting out some terrible, nasty toxins. Kergen reacted just in time, erecting another protective shield to block all the venom from hitting her; the toxic slid down the barrier onto the ground, and Kergen let go of the protect, satisfied. Sure, she hadn't exactly harmed her opponent this round at all, but she'd escaped harm herself, so she figured she was on good ground.

Start off with Swagger. If she is confused, follow with a Giga Drain on her energy. If she's not confused for whatever reason, Swagger again. If she manages to block confusion twice, use Toxic. If she's confused by then, use Giga Drain on her energy.

fine, fine, I'll get around to you vs linoone ... maybe over the weekend. maybe.

so, Kergen. we are going to be doing a whole bunch of nothing.

dig down. if you can still reach into its mind, spite everything the bulbasaur does from underground. if you cannot, first mimic that sleep powder; then ... there is nothing to do. we will simply wait.

Kergen glances at Naios for a moment before sinking her paws into the dirt, swiping it away swiftly and easily. She digs, digs, digs underground, fast and steady, but not fast enough to avoid hearing Naios's taunts. Trying to escape, are you? Hah. Of course. My sweet scents are just so sweet; I've worked on them for years. I know, I know; you couldn't help but become enamored - everyone does! But now you realized your mistake? And you want to run... poor mankey, caught up in my sweet trap... it wasn't your fault, I'm just too sexy for you, I'm honestly a beast of pure magic--

Kergen fumed, digging deeper and deeper, and the further she dug the less she heard. But the ranting was enough to get to her, and it rattled in her mind, repeating over and over until she couldn't think of anything else. Once she'd dug enough she curled up and glared at the dirt wall, rage seeping through her.

Luckily she was clear-headed enough to recall the bulbasaur's previous moves. She closed her eyes and played that over in her mind, like a movie, rewinding and pausing and zooming in to get all the details right. Once she was sure she'd seen it all, she was also sure she could mimic the attack perfectly. ... Once aboveground, because now it would only hit her.

And yes, aboveground, Naios flicked an ear in agitation, unsure of whether her boasting had worked. She couldn't quite see Kergen to get a clear picture of the mankey's reaction, and... well, how would she know otherwise? She sighed and began to swagger again, speaking of her pure sex appeal (because that's what Kergen cares about, obviously) and swerving around quite sexily to prove it. Since Kergen wasn't there to see it, the swagger's effects only worked on res, and indeed it was quite smitten by the bulbasaur's... sexiness. And who could blame it.

Down below, Kergen rage was reaching a boiling point. The mankey got to her feet - as much as she could in the small den she'd made - and jumped around, swinging her fists madly and accidentally bonking herself on the head. She screeched and fell back down, rage subsided only by her stupidity in having hit herself. She curled up again, cursing under her breath.

Naios muttered something, still unsure of her commands. She sighed and wandered over to the hole Kergen had made; she couldn't really see the mankey down below, only... hole. She sighed again and hacked up some phlegm, nice and lovely for the mankey, and spat it down the hole. It trickled down some inches before being soaked up by mud. Very effective. Great. The worst part was, she was feeling really exhausted, as if boasting of sexiness took all the effort in the world. She sat on her bum, breathing rather heavily and wishing she could actually fight.

... oh, feh. ah, well.

you get to just stay down there. for ever, if necessary. take your time, clear your head.

but whenever you can be sure that you can think clearly, begin to dig upward. never leave the ground, mind -- just far enough to feel the presence of the bulbasaur's mind. and from there, spite everything.

Okay, sense where Kergen is and siphon some energy with a Giga Drain. Keep that up until it's Spited. If that happens, spit some Sludge down in the hole at her. Finish with another Giga Drain towards her energy, or an Echoed Voice straight into the hole, If Giga Drain's been Spited.

Kergen wiggles the shivers out of her head, all thoughts clear for now. She can certainly think clearly enough to start digging upwards, shifting the dirt around with her claws until she feels she's suitably close to the bulbasaur above her. At that point she stops digging up, instead shifting around and making herself a tiny little cave-like structure, comfortable enough for her to stay in for now. There's only about a foot of ground between her and the air above, so she stays quiet, hoping Naios doesn't notice her.

And indeed, Naios doesn't. The bulbasaur shifts around, still standing by the hole Kergen had dug earlier, trying to spot the mankey below. Of course, this is pointless, seeing as Kergen had dug up again - and there's no way Naios could 'sense' the mankey anywhere, she'd have to see her. She sighs, reaching out for something and attempting to grab energy from it, but nothing happens at all other than her growing more and more tired.

So close below, Kergen closes her eyes and drifts into Naios's mind, syncing on the most recently-used move: giga drain. The mankey grins as she imprints negative thoughts in her opponent's mind; so nasty, her favourite kind. She slips out of the bulbasaur's mind and back into her underground burrow, hoping that did the trick.

Naios pauses for a moment - she's not sure whether she was spited, but there are some... lingering unpleasant thoughts surrounding giga drain. She decides to go for sludge instead then, hacking and spitting some purple, nasty bile down the hole after the toxic she'd previously tossed down; and like the toxic, the sludge only leaks down the hole, hitting no one before seeping into the dirt. Naios shifts uneasily, growing incredibly tired with each passing second; this really isn't going well for her.

Kergen grins, all hints of confusion gone by now, and digs into Naios' mind again. It's incredibly easy by now, the bulbasaur having no forms of defense; she just slips in, leaves a stray bad thought, and slips back out. She's gone within seconds. Naios once again has no idea whether she's been spited - but she opts for the safer choice, not using the same attack again, because her uneasy feelings are so overwhelming right now that she figures she must have been spited. She opens her mouth wide and lets out a bellowing cry; the call echoes throughout the arena, but no one calls back, and the cry is too weak to pass through to dirt and reach Kergen's hiding spot. The mankey keeps grinning, hoping this will be over soon.

Arena Notes:
There's a smallish hole in the ground leading to where Kergen is.

Final Notes:
- Spite took more energy than usual, to find Naios' mind through the ground and all.
- Naios has no psychic powers and could not find Kergen underground to giga drain her.
- Someone please die.
- Barubu next.
