HM, okay, for the moment we're just a bit faster... let's see how we can use that... Let's use Agility to dodge the Wring Out and gain some more speed for future evo's. Then set up a 10% Substitute to take that leech seed. Then we'll trap 'em to stop that Body Slam with an Infestation swarm.

Agility ~ Substitute (10%) ~ Infestation

Round Five

Sangfroidish (xOo)
bayleeflucky-egg
Queen Anne (F) Intimidate
Health: 81%
Energy: 92%
Status: Okay with this. Hidden Power is flying-type. Focus Energy’d.
Commands: Wring Out/Swords Dance/Magical Leaf ~ Leech Seed/Swords Dance/Magical Leaf ~ Body Slam/Swords Dance/Facade

pathos (xOo)
skorupilucky-egg
Akra (F) Sniper
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Status: Clicking to herself.
Commands: Agility ~ Substitute (10%) ~ Infestation

pathos’s next choice is a blue, angular scorpion, whose little claws click against the stone floor. Akra’s thin pupils dilate slightly as she notices that the only light source is obscured by dust-ridden glass. She considers her opponent, who is similarly sizing her up. After a moment, Queen Anne sprouts twin vines beneath her pod necklace, cracking them like whips and extending them quickly … but Akra skitters out of the way, darting up and down piles of junk like nobody’s business. Her mind coaxes her muscles into increasing their speed, and by the time she skids to a stop on top of a table, she’s practically bouncing in place, and her tail swishes jerkily as she considers her next move.

Well, that’s not hard to figure out. She scuttles over to another pile of junk, grabbing shards of who knows what and whipping them together with eager claws. Soon she steps back, nodding to herself at the sight of the Skorupi-like construct taking its shielding stance. And not a moment too soon: Queen Anne, annoyed at Akra’s blatant avoidance, takes aim and fires a seed that sails through the air for a moment before bouncing right off the Substitute, clattering and getting quickly lost in the rubble.

Akra flashes a buggy grin at Queen Anne, then chitters in a tongue incomprehensible to non-bugs. The trainers shift uncomfortably as hundreds of tiny insects crawl and buzz out of the nooks and crannies in the warehouse, all converging on Queen Anne. The Bayleef rears up, realizing what this means, but soon the bugs are upon her, crawling in her skin and scales and pods so that she can barely be seen beneath them. She struggles to free herself of the swarm, but they insistently skitter about, making her itch so much she can’t even consider trying to charge the Skorupi.

At that moment, both Pokemon are overtaken by a glow. Queen Anne’s stance shifts from quadrupedal to bipedal, and she exchanges her herbivorous physique for the grin of a more familiar predator. Meanwhile, Akra shrinks down to rodent size, and her chittering takes on a squeaky quality as her little nose and big ears perk up to newly experienced sights and smells.

HMMmmm... Well, I'm glad we infested our opponent, cause it's got a lot of SE moves now... So let's keep our distance this round. We'll go with a simple Thunderbolt, Charge Beam, and Thunderbolt, switching to Work Up if you can't hit your target (due to protect most likely?).

Thunderbolt / Work Up ~ Charge Beam / Work Up ~ Thunderbolt / Work Up

If I don't roll a Quilava next round I will be upset

Shake those bugs off with Struggle, break the sub with Brick Break, then break the Rattata's nose with Superpower. Be a dear and crit while you're at it.

Akra watches Queen Anne squirm. She’ll leave her to her business, then, since she looks so busy with those little friends of hers. The Rattata points her nose upward, mouth open slightly so that her teeth are exposed, and concentrates. Soon energy crackles in the air above her head, and she lets it grow until, satisfied, she sends it slicing across the room, striking Queen Anne and making her roar in pain. Queen Anne, twitching from the power of the Thunderbolt, decides she’s had enough of this, and proceeds to slap herself silly. The little bugs are easily brushed off with every hit, and they disperse to go do their own thing elsewhere. The Croconaw straightens herself, huffing in satisfaction. Her scales sting a little from her own strikes, but that’s a small price to pay to have those bugs gone.

Akra frowns. Why would she hurt herself to get out of those generously-given bugs? That’s just ungrateful. Her whiskers sizzle as she charges up a decent amount of electricity, and her fur stands on end for a moment before she unleashes the energy in the form of a beam. She nods to herself as Queen Anne growls from the impact, and she feels a measure of satisfaction as some of the static clings to her body. For her part, Queen Anne curls her lip in disdain. That rat’s feeling safe and sound, tossing electricity at her like nobody’s business? Maybe she should show her how it’s really done. She charges, hands poised for some good old-fashioned chopping, and brings them down at her foe in a quick one-two-three. At the last second, Akra’s Substitute leaps in the way, shattering beneath Queen Anne’s claws into scraps.

The loss of her friend makes Akra flatten her ears. How dare she? She worked hard on that doll-thing. Her nose lifts to the air, then comes down sharply as she aims another Thunderbolt at the Croconaw. Queen Anne twitches as the electricity courses through her. Then she snarls, brandishing her fists, and proceeds to pummel Akra with all her strength. Adrenaline courses through her veins with every squeak the rat produces, but when she finally backs off, she feels a little tired. She’ll have to be careful next round, she thinks.

This round, though, sees the two battlers glowing once again. Queen Anne, half expecting to take on a mustelid’s form, is mildly disappointed as her girth expands drastically, and gray and black skin bulges in a hippo’s mighty shape. Akra finds herself turning from a small furry creature with buckteeth to a somewhat larger furry creature with buckteeth, and her beaver’s tail smacks against the floor a few times as she awaits her next orders.

【°〜°】

Let's tuck some energy away with Stockpile, slap it with a Revenge, and then Swallow. If you're Yawned on the first action, Swallow right away on the second and use Sleep Talk on the third. If it protects or can't be hit on the second action, Swallow on the second and shift Revenge to the third action.

Stockpile (25%) ~ Revenge/Swallow ~ Swallow/Sleep Talk/Revenge

Round Seven

Sangfroidish (xOo)
hippowdon-flucky-egg
Queen Anne (F) Intimidate
Health: 45%
Energy: 71%
Status: Rumbling to herself. Hidden Power is flying-type. Focus Energy’d. Att -1, Def -1.

Commands: Taunt ~ Substitute (10%) ~ Scald

Queen Anne feels slow and ponderous. She huffs, considering the benefits of stockpiling some energy for future use … and then she notices Akra waving her behind, jeering that surely she’s too fat to get so much as a belch accomplished. With an angry snort, Queen Anne bristles, orders forgotten. She has to hit that no-good beaver! But how? Who cares? Her forelegs wave around, smacking Akra in hopes of making her feel some pain, any pain, in response to her bruised ego. She ends up hitting herself a couple times, but it’s so worth it.

Akra locks her fingers together. It’s so nice when she can piss people off, she thinks. She doesn’t get to do it that often. Still, she’d better prepare herself for Queen Anne’s next attack. With greater ease than previously, she puts together another construct made of random junk lying around. This one is shaped like a Bibarel, though, and it stares blankly ahead once she’s finished. Its stare doesn’t change when Queen Anne steps in for another round of beating, though it’s pretty average as far as beatings go, even as it steps in to absorb the blows. When it’s over, the Sub looks like it’s starting to come apart, but it’ll hold a while longer.

Time for a sick burn. Akra puffs out her chest until it can go no further, then spews out a column of boiling water. Steam rises in a burst as the water strikes Queen Anne, who roars in pain at the searing heat. Dripping wet and furious, the Hippowdon racks her brain to figure out what to do. Swallow? Who has time for that? Fairly sure it’s not the right circumstance for those other commands, she’ll just slam on that beaver again and hope it makes a mark. She flails her forelegs, occasionally connecting with the Substitute, who soon collapses into a pile of inert junk. When she’s done, Queen Anne is left breathing heavily, calming down enough for rational thought to return. A glint catches her eye, and she thuds over to unearth a shining evolution stone, which she noses over to a pleased Sangfroidish.

At that moment, evolution strikes once more. Queen Anne’s bulk shrinks down to a fun-sized elephant, and she waves a blue-and-orange trunk around, clearly enjoying the new appendage. Akra swells up into a towering, ominous genie thing, and she folds her arms, trying on her intimidating new look for size.

- A Moon Stone is resting next to some old equipment.

Calculations:
- Queen Anne’s health: 45% - 2% (Struggle) - 16% (Scald) - 2% (Struggle) = 25%
- Queen Anne’s energy: 71% - 3% (Struggle) - 3% (Revenge) - 3% (Struggle) = 62%
- Akra’s health: 72% - 4% (Struggle) - 10% (Substitute) = 58%
- Akra’s energy: 78% - 4% (Taunt) - 5% (Substitute) - 4% (Scald) = 65%
- Akra’s Substitute: 10% - 7% (Revenge) - 4% (Struggle) = 0%

Other Notes:
- Akra outspeeds Queen Anne (65 > 40).
- Because she was Taunted and had no damaging option on the first action, Queen Anne used Struggle.
- Likewise, on the third action, none of the conditions necessary for each command happened, so Queen Anne Struggled again.
- Queen Anne found an evolution stone on the third action.
- This round, Queen Anne evolved into a Phanpy, and Akra evolved into a Dusknoir.
- Evolution stone bonus totals: $2 for Sangfroidish, $1 for pathos.
- Questions or concerns? Let me know.

Next Round:

Hm, okay... Phanpy don't really have anything too threatening against you, Akra, so I think we're okay for now. First thing though is I want you to drop that Lucky Egg, just as a precaution, and you should still be able to Ice Beam. If you can't do both, just Fling that thing at her. Then we'll Ice Beam spam, but on the final action, if you've already used Ice Beam twice, Astonish instead. Also, if they ever try to use Head Smash, Counter it... and if you've already used Counter successfully, start using Astonish from then on.

Ice Beam / Fling / Counter ~ Ice Beam / Counter / Astonish x2

Actually Phanpy has one pretty darned cunning thing to use against you if only it could survive two attacks to set it up! OTL

Instead of that we'll cheese it with Rest to buy time and even the numbers, throw off a couple of Sleep Talks, and hope for better RNG in the rounds to come. :l

Round Eight

Akra (F) Sniper
Health: 58%

Status: Too spooky for herself. SpA +1, Spe +2.
Commands: Ice Beam / Fling / Counter ~ Ice Beam / Counter / Astonish x2

Akra examines her broad hands. Is this what all the fuss is about? This double-jointed thumb thing or whatever it is? She doesn’t think much of it, but she’ll make use of it while she has it. In the palm of her hand, she gathers ice energy, and it grows to a considerable size before she fires it at her Phanpy foe. Queen Anne trumpets in pain as the attack hits, shuddering from the cold and the severe lack of health. Not sure what else to do, she calms herself, curls up, and takes a nap. The sweet slip into dreamland increases the pace of her body’s natural healing, and energy permeates her every cell to facilitate the process.

The mouth on Akra’s belly scowls. How dare she just sleep like that! Can’t she see they’re in a battle here? With another Beam of Ice, she hits Queen Anne with all she’s got, but the little elephant merely continues on with her power nap. She’s not entirely out of it, though: with some unconscious mumbling, she gets up — eyes still closed — and sleepwalks over to Akra, smacking at her a few times with her trunk and forefeet before backing off. The blows go right through her, though, and the Dusknoir is almost disappointed at the apparent anticlimax.

Still, she won’t let an opportunity go to waste, and so fires yet another chilly beam at the snoozing elephant. This seems to set something in motion within Queen Anne, as she reaches her semi-awareness deep under the floor, into places where ancestors dream. The spirits respond, pulling themselves out of the under in the form of earthy orbs of light, and circle the elephant for a few seconds. Traces of their power cling to Queen Anne, endowing her with an otherworldly power. Then, they quickly converge on Akra, who grunts as they pelt her with mild but not unnoticeable force. Blearily, Queen Anne opens her eyes, noting the Dusknoir’s irritation. She feels refreshed, but at the same time so tired. Maybe she should take another nap?

In a flash, the two Pokemon evolve once again. Queen Anne sprouts feathers and a beak, sporting a feather crest that sags above her fluffy head as she struggles to catch her breath. Akra blossoms like a beautiful flower into a dinosaur, one with a long neck and twin crests like butterfly wings.

That... was more costly than I anticipated. (Though Queen Anne seems to have 6% damage in her end-of-round summary whereas the calculations list makes it 10%. Which is it?)
also fuck these rolls with a spade

Just... do your best to Chill and finish the round with a Steel Wing. If she protects or otherwise can't be hit on the third action, go for a chill there as well.

Chill ~ Chill ~ Steel Wing/Chill

Commands: Echoed Voice x3

Taking a deep breath, Queen Anne starts to settle down, hoping to perch and get some rest … but then Akra’s bellow disrupts her attempt to calm down. While the voice doesn’t have the uncanny undercurrent of ancient glaciers boosting its volume, the echo is nevertheless enough to ruffle her feathers. The echoes still ring in the air as she makes a second attempt to settle down, but another Echoed Voice, this one louder, prevents her similarly.

When a third bellow nearly bowls her over, rattling everything in the vicinity, Queen Anne decides enough is enough. She raises a wing, and, though it trembles, she infuses it with metallic energy. Fluttering woozily through the air, she brings the wing down on Akra’s head, and the Aurorus roars in pain as steel cracks into her dual defenses of ice and stone. Queen Anne backs off, pleased at having caused so much damage, though she can barely stand at this point. She hopes that whatever comes next will be better suited to the battle …

With their usual glow, the battlers change. Queen Anne shifts into a strange, bell-like creature, who chimes in exhaustion as her tassels flutter in the ghostly echoes of the Echoed Voice. Akra shrinks considerably, taking on the dainty form of a fawn; she pokes at the floor with a hoof, wondering whether these little things can do much damage.

deerling-winterlucky-egg
Akra (F) Sniper
Health: 38%
Energy: 35%
Status: Skeptical of her form’s toughness. SpA +1, Spe +2.
Actions: Echoed Voice ~ Echoed Voice ~ Echoed Voice


Arena Notes:
- The wall on pathos’s side is splattered with gunk.
- An Eviolite is lying in a pile of discarded stones.
- A Moon Stone is resting next to some old equipment.

Calculations:
- Queen Anne’s health: 70% - 4% (Echoed Voice) - 8% (Echoed Voice) - 26% (Echoed Voice) = 37% (capped)
- Queen Anne’s energy: 6% - 4% (Steel Wing) = 2%
- Akra’s health: 52% - 14% (Steel Wing) = 38%
- Akra’s energy: 50% - 2% (Echoed Voice) - 4% (Echoed Voice) - 9% (Echoed Voice) = 35%

Other Notes:
- Akra outspeeds Queen Anne (95 > 55).
- The third Echoed Voice was a critical hit.
- This round, Queen Anne evolved into a Chingling, and Akra evolved into an Deerling.
- Evolution stone bonus totals: $2 for Sangfroidish, $1 for pathos.
- Questions or concerns? Let me know.

Next Round:
- pathos commands
- Sangfroidish commands

Okay, 2% energy. We can work with that. Just gotta spread it around a little.

Use up the first half of it with a Flash; hopefully that'll end up helping the next guy out. Then if you think you can get off a full attack with that last drop of energy, throw a Psychic at it, and for Christ's sake try to put some of that Focus Energy into it just for once. If you think you'll energyfaint before you can even complete the attack (I'm guessing you have no way of knowing but w/e) just... Flash again or something.

Flash ~ Psychic + die/Flash + die

Determined to cut off any possible sense of relief from Queen Anne, Akra sings. It isn’t exactly pretty singing; she’s just picking random words that occur to her. Strawberry banana milkshake, she decides to repeat. Strawberry banana milkshake, strawberry banana milkshake … Queen Anne, not appreciating the heartfelt rendition of whatever this is, flashes brightly, searing Akra’s vision with an imprint of the exhausted Chingling. Making a pained deer noise, Akra squeezes her eyes shut, hoping to eliminate the pulsing images in her vision, but they still swim before her. She brays loudly, her sweet song forgotten: while not as impressive as the roar of an Aurorus, it’s still enough to wear on Queen Anne. The Chingling shudders, summoning her last drop of energy in hopes of making things easier for whatever teammate comes next, and lets her whole body blaze with brief light once more. She barely registers Akra’s protest, instead slipping away immediately into blessed darkness.

With that round finished, Queen Anne reverts back to her usual crocodilian form, albeit with an unusual lack of vigor. Akra, a little worn down but triumphant nevertheless, finds herself taking on a form that she was facing not too long ago; she lifts her trunk, jumps a little when a honking noise emerges, and then proceeds to repeat the noise (for purely scientific purposes, naturally).

Knock em dead, Hindy!

Make it rain, then smack 'em with Weather Balls. If she changes the weather, go for Shadow Balls instead, and if she protects or you can't hit her, Minimise.

Rain Dance ~ Weather Ball/Shadow Ball/Minimise x2

Okay, we get the first action free, so let's Confide something to our friend there, since that doesn't rely on accuracy... Then we'll Protect and Odor Sleuth that loon out.
