Default Re: Dazel vs MrKyurem

Round Six

Dazel (Ooo)
shinx
Thundercat (M) Intimidate
Health: 67%
Energy: 58%
Status: Batting his face gingerly. Burned (moderate, 1%/action).
Commands: Charge ~ Thunder Fang / Howl ~ Roar

MrKyurem (Ooo)
slugma
Salt Burns (M) Flame Body
Health: 13%
Energy: 60%
Status: Bobbing around in a weird dance. Paralyzed (light, 5% chance of full paralysis). Nature Power and Lava Plume forgotten. Def +1, SpD +4.
Commands: Swagger ~ Iron Defence ~ Prepare for impact/Iron Defence/Flame Charge (+knockback +energy cost)

Thundercat has only been burned for a few seconds, and he’s already mad. He bristles - literally. Every hair in his coat stands on end as he generates electricity within himself, and a hum of thunderous power warbles in the air around him. His next move is sure to be a shocker, he knows, grinning in anticipation - and then Salt Burns leans in toward him, leering, and asks just what that little display is supposed to do. His body undulates mockingly as he remarks that his display of power is much better than that even despite his setbacks, and he grins when he notices a vein pop in Thundercat’s forehead. Even if he gets knocked out in the next couple actions, the Slugma decides, this is totally worth it.

Red fills Thundercat’s vision. How dare that slug sneer at him like that? How dare he? His paws shake in rage, and it’s all he can do to keep himself from going berserk. Instead, he snarls at Salt Burns, baring cute little lion cub fangs … but they soon crackle with the power of lightning, and the electric aura around him funnels itself into those fangs, making them so bright that the Slugma can barely look at them. He is, however, very aware of those fangs when they chomp right into him, sinking deeply into his magma body. His eyes cross, and he barely manages to hang on to consciousness; colored spots dance at the edges of his vision. He stiffens himself, and for a moment it looks like he’s cooling off, but this is only true for his outer layer, which will take on the consistency of steel when struck. Forcing himself to relax, he lets out a deep breath.

Thundercat isn’t relaxing, that’s for sure. He yowls horribly, having realized too late that biting a lava creature while his face is burned might not be such a great idea. The area around his mouth is particularly cracked, though the bleeding is cauterized. Hardly in the shape to be thinking straight, he slams his head repeatedly into the ground, trying to forcibly put out the fire in his face. Salt Burns, looking a little hopeful at this, decides to go back on the attack. He bounces quickly in place, working himself up to the point that he’s all limbered up, and then rockets toward Thundercat with every possible scrap of speed he has, summoning modest flames to whip around him as he does. It isn’t particularly forceful, but it’s nevertheless enough to knock the Shinx even more off balance, sending him skidding over the edge and into the center of the planet … there’s a rush of air, a pained mewl, and then Thundercat is thrown back out of the black hole, looking rather worse for the wear. Neither Pokemon is particularly enthusiastic at the moment.

Dazel (Ooo)
shinx
Thundercat (M) Intimidate
Health: 44%
Energy: 51%
Status: Groaning. Burned (severe, 4%/round). Confused (moderate). Att +2, SpD +1.
Actions: Charge ~ Thunder Fang ~ confused

MrKyurem (Ooo)
slugma
Salt Burns (M) Flame Body
Health: 2%
Energy: 51%
Status: Woozy. Nature Power and Lava Plume forgotten. Def +1, SpD +4, Spd +1.
Actions: Swagger ~ Iron Defense ~ Flame Charge


Arena Notes:
- Both Pokemon are on the black hole planet.

Calculations:
- Thundercat’s health: 67% - 6% (confusionfail) - 6% (Flame Charge) - 7% (black hole) - 4% (burn) = 44%
- Thundercat’s energy: 58% - 3% (Charge) - 2% (Thunder Fang) - 2% (confusionfail) = 51%
- Salt Burns’s health: 13% - 11% (Thunder Fang) = 2%
- Salt Burns’s energy: 60% - 4% (Swagger) - 2% (Iron Defense) - 3% (Flame Charge) = 51%

Other Notes:
- Thundercat outspeeds Salt Burns (45 > 30).
- Salt Burns’s paralysis faded entirely on the first action.
- When Thundercat used Thunder Fang, his burn was aggravated by Salt Burn’s magma body.
- Thundercat was fully confused on the third action.
- I’m considering Iron Defense to do just that - activate when the Pokemon is struck by an attack, rather than when it is striking. Therefore, it didn’t contribute to the knockback.
- However, the speed boost granted by Flame Charge did contribute to the knockback, knocking Thundercat into the black hole.

Next Round:
- MrKyurem commands
- Dazel commands

If we're lucky, confusion takes over Dazel, and we can attack them. Otherwise, due to the paralysis speed loss, we can't hit them fast enough. Protecting will just stall a turn, and attacking us will finish us - we can't go before them. There's only one thing left to do.

Insert terrorist statement, and Selfdestruct.

Well, I guess we're going to have to try our luck with a quick attack and hope to god you don't confusionfail. Here goes the battle nothing.

The world wavers in and out of sanity, fluctuating between the ordinary surface of the planet and the flickering horror of the black hole. Thundercat hisses to himself, swatting his own ears in trying to eliminate the howling noise that he interprets from his trainer’s words. As such, he completely fails to notice Salt Burns straightening himself, gathering all the strength he can muster. The Slugma’s body glows, the light quickly brightening from magma red to fiery yellow to vivid white, bright enough to make every trainer present shield their eyes. A warning whine swells into audibility, shrill and dangerous. Thundercat, even in his pure befuddlement, can make out the sound just a second before—

Salt Burns explodes. Sort of. Every bit of power in him bursts outward in a destructive radius, with bits of lava ooze blasting out in all directions. Thundercat yowls as he’s sent flying in the air again, straight into the black hole, clarity suddenly rushing back with all the pain he’s gone through, wondering if he can make it out of this one ...

It’s a while before the afterimage fades from everyone else’s eyes, and they look on cautiously at what remains of the battlers. MrKyurem recalls the Slugma parts scattered everywhere, which reform into an unconscious Salt Burns as the beam brings him home. Dazel looks on anxiously, wondering where Thundercat is now … but before too long, the black hole spits the Shinx back out, and he wobbles uneasily on jelly legs. His burn looks just as painful as ever, but now he’s taken that pain and turned it into focus, allowing him to see the world normally again. He flicks his tail defiantly at this turn of events, not even caring that his face is throbbing horribly.

- Salt Burns’s health: 2% - 2% = 0%
- Salt Burns’s energy: 51% - 11% (Self-Destruct) = 40%

Other Notes:
- Thundercat runs alone (45).
- Thundercat was confused on the first action.
- Thundercat’s confusion was wiped out entirely by Self-Destruct.
- Thundercat was knocked back into the black hole, but he was shielded somewhat from this and his burn by the damage cap.

Default Re: Dazel vs MrKyurem

Nice fancy c's you've got there.

Right, here's my devious and evil plan. First, we will use Double-Edge. We have more than enough health to take the knockback (and speaking of knockback, hold back a tad bit so we don't accidentally defeat Shinx too early), and we can easily heal it back with those bunnies and stuff. Then, we use Fell Stinger, to defeat Shinx and gain some rather appreciated attack bonuses (that is, if my calcs are right). After this, we will begin to create our evil, mobile and deadly fortress - if Ingrain does count as direct healing, we will use Sandstorm, but as a concentrated shield, which will both block any projectiles, and give us an evasion boost. However, if Ingrain is a legal move, we will go ahead and use Ingrain now - considering the evasion boost is created by the dust, not increased movements, we can gain the benefits of that later. If Shinx is somehow still alive, use Fell Stinger again. That shouldn't happen, though.

You can see where this is going, can't you?

Double Edge (hold back for less knockback) ~ Fell Stinger ~ Ingrain/Sandstorm/Fell Stinger

Round Eight

Dazel (Ooo)
shinx
Thundercat (M) Intimidate
Health: 14%
Energy: 49%
Status: Standing as tall as he can. Burned (severe, 4%/round). SpD +1.
Commands: Facade/Fury Cutter/Thunder Wave x3

MrKyurem (xOo)
Cacnea
Insert Euphoric Nickname (M) Sand Veil
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Status: Curious.
Commands: Double-Edge (hold back for less knockback) ~ Fell Stinger ~ Ingrain/Sandstorm/Fell Stinger

MrKyurem’s next Pokemon is a stout, spiky specimen. Insert Euphoric Nickname considers his new surroundings, taking in the thorn-raising sight of a miniature planet riddled with holes. He looks over at Thundercat, whose face contorts in rage at the sight of the grass-typed arrival. Another one to beat? The Shinx is nearing the end of his rope.

Still, Dazel needs him, so he’ll do what he can. He crouches, concentrating all of his pain and rage into sheer force, and soon charges into a furious tackle. Fueled by the burn rather than hindered by it, it’s enough to make Insert Euphoric Nickname lean back, flailing his arms to keep his balance. When he rights himself, the Cacnea gets ready to strike back. His body glows white, and he pulls in his arm, points his shoulder, and slams into Thundercat, who snarls from the impact. He skids a ways away, though mercifully stopping well before sliding into the black hole. He doesn’t feel particularly relieved, though: shapes dance hazily in his vision, and he’s close to keeling over right now. Insert Euphoric Nickname nods to himself at this, though he rubs his shoulder - that attack is a bit of a double-edged sword, pun not intended.

Shakily, Thundercat pushes himself up onto his paws. Tired or not, he can still get in at least one more good hit. Another burst of energy marks a reckless tackle, and when the dust settles, Insert Euphoric Nickname looks a little irritated. He raises one limb, and the thorn at its tip extends into a sharp stinger. Then, deliberately, he makes a quick jab into Thundercat’s side … and his confidence swells considerably when the Shinx flops over, out for the count. Insert Euphoric Nickname swells his approximation for a chest with pride. What fun! He is really getting the hang of this, he thinks.

Dazel (Xoo)

Cacnea
Insert Euphoric Nickname (M) Sand Veil
Health: 68%
Energy: 91%
Status: Raring for more action. Att +2.
Actions: Double-Edge ~ Fell Stinger


Arena Notes:
- Both Pokemon are on the black hole planet (MrKyurem didn’t specify where Insert Euphoric Nickname should start, but I’m inferring that he’s supposed to start here).

Calculations:
- Thundercat’s health: 14% - 11% (Double-Edge) - 3% (Fell Stinger) = 0%
- Thundercat’s energy: 49% - 8% (Facade) - 8% (Facade) = 33%
- Insert Euphoric Nickname’s health: 100% - 14% (Facade) - 4% (Double-Edge) - 14% (Facade) = 68%
- Insert Euphoric Nickname’s energy: 100% - 7% (Double-Edge) - 2% (Fell Stinger) = 91%

Other Notes:
- Insert Euphoric Nickname sprouts alone (35).
- I interpreted Insert Euphoric Nickname’s command to hold back a little to give Double-Edge a power reduction of 1%, as if he had been Growled at. Double-Edge did not cause knockback.

Next Round:
- Dazel sends out
- MrKyurem commands
- Dazel commands

Ah, that's right. I was factoring in the damage reduction from his burn, but obviously it wouldn't apply to a burn-fueled Facade. Fixed.

And now, this time, we will begin to create our evil, mobile and deadly fortress - if Ingrain does count as direct healing, we will use Sandstorm, but as a concentrated shield, which will both block any projectiles, and give us an evasion boost. However, if Ingrain is a legal move, we will go ahead and use Ingrain now - considering the evasion boost is created by the dust, not increased movements, we can gain the benefits of that later.

After this turn, we shall use either Sandstorm to create a concentrated shield, assuming we didn't set it up before, or we will use Cotton Spore, to impede their movement and allow us to act first.

Next, use Grasswhistle, and hope for hax. Our evil fortress is soon to be complete!

If ingrain is legal and that's what IEN uses, go ahead with a swords dance. If not, and he uses sandstorm instead, use aerial ace to bypass the evasion boost and possibly dispel the shield with our Super Speed™. Next, if IEN is using cotton spore, just use agility. If he's using sand storm, though, use aerial ace like before. I don't feel like chancing it with grass whistle, so use protect on the last action.

Swords dance / aerial ace ~ agility / aerial ace ~ protect

Round Nine

Dazel (xOo)
fletchlingflying-gem
Wright (M) Big Pecks
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Status: Fluffing his wings.
Commands: Swords dance / aerial ace ~ agility / aerial ace ~ protect

MrKyurem (xOo)
Cacnea
Insert Euphoric Nickname (M) Sand Veil
Health: 68%
Energy: 91%
Status: Raring for more action. Att +2.
Commands: Sandstorm/Ingrain ~ Sandstorm/Cotton Spore ~ Grass Whistle

Dazel’s next choice of Pokemon is a little bird of red and gray plumage. Wright looks around anxiously, wondering what the heck happened here. It’s like there’s a black hole at the center of this planet or something. Insert Euphoric Nickname gives him the stinkeye - a flying-type and a future fire-type? This just won’t do. He’s got to show him what’s what.

Wright watches Insert Euphoric Nickname cautiously, wondering what the Cacnea has up his sleeve. Not one to disappoint, Insert obliges the Fletchling’s curiosity: roots slither from his body and delve into the planet, where they anchor him firmly into place. Despite the hollow nature in the planet, there are still enough nutrients in the soil to be pulled up into his body. Wright isn’t impressed - So he’s a plant, big deal! - and makes his own preparations. Launching into a strange, intricate dance, he pumps himself up into a fighting spirit, to the point that even his claws and beak get a little sharper. Once he’s done, he flaps his wings in what he hopes is an impressive display.

Insert, having his own attack boosts, wonders just what kind of damage this bird can do. But said bird is waiting to see what he does, so he figures he might as well do something while he can. He whips his arms around, and the dust of the earth follows his whim, floating into the air to form a shield of shifting bits of sand. His body concealed entirely, he is quite satisfied with this work … until a feathered blur homes in on him, hitting him with zero regard to his spiky body. Insert wheezes from the unnatural force, holding his side, and manages to look up to see if his shield is still intact. Luckily for him, the shifting, swirling nature of the sand makes it a simple matter for the hole left by the Aerial Ace attack to patch itself.

Meanwhile, Wright, a little saddened by the impromptu explosion of his breezy gem, creates his own shield, this one in the form of a translucent sphere that surrounds him snugly. He watches the Sandstorm shield warily, but he sees and hears nothing. Insert plays a little lullaby on his thorns, much like he would use a flute, but from what he can tell through the sandstorm, it’s not having any effect. Disappointed, he watches as Wright’s Protect eventually drops, and both await their next orders.

Dazel (xOo)

Wright (M) Big Pecks
Health: 99%

Insert Euphoric Nickname (M) Sand Veil
Health: 53%
Energy: 81%
Status: Tentatively secure. Shielded by a Sandstorm (7 more actions). Att +2.
Actions: Ingrain ~ Sandstorm ~ Grass Whistle


Arena Notes:
- Both Pokemon are on the black hole planet.

Calculations:
- Wright’s health: 100% - 1% (Sandstorm) = 99%
- Wright’s energy: 100% - 1% (Swords Dance) - 2% (Aerial Ace) - 2% (Protect) = 95%
- Insert Euphoric Nickname’s health: 68% + 1% (Ingrain) - 18% (Aerial Ace) + 1% (Ingrain) + 1% (Ingrain) = 53%
- Insert Euphoric Nickname’s energy: 91% - 4% (Ingrain) - 5% (Sandstorm) - 1% (Grass Whistle) = 81%

Other Notes:
- Wright outspeeds Insert Euphoric Nickname (62 > 35).
- I’ve assumed that Wright was meant to begin on the black hole planet.
- Turns out Ingrain counts as indirect healing, not direct healing. Who knew?
- Wright’s Flying Gem was consumed to fuel his Aerial Ace for an 18-2 ratio of damage to energy cost - which is pretty ridiculous.

Next Round:
- Dazel commands
- MrKyurem commands

All right, now that our flying gem is gone, let's whip out some acrobatics! If they go for another grass whistle, use protect, and if they use any other non-damaging move, use swords dance.

First turn, stall a bit - if you can entice them to using Swords Dance before you, use Disable (they say they'll use SD under the conditions that I use a non-grass whistle status move - like Disable). If they insist on acting after you, use Substitute, 10% HP, so that they use a Swords Dance. Next, use Disable if you haven't already - if you've already used disable, get that Substitute, 10% HP going. Next, use Cotton Spore, so we can start attacking first.

Disable/Substitute(10%) ~ Substitute(10%)/Disable ~ Cotton Spore

Ruffling his feathers, Wright settles himself down to wait. He peers intently at the shifting shield of sand. If he looks really, really closely, he can catch the outline of the patient cactus, who also seems to be waiting. Nevertheless, Wright lets the seconds tick on, until finally IEN blinks in their metaphorical staring contest, sculpting a Cacnea-like figure out of the earth. The Sub stands beside him, the shield expanding slightly to accommodate it, and it poises itself, ready to jump in if need be. Wright, noticing the movement within, decides to get something done, and soon he’s in the midst of another warlike dance of feathers, his muscles bulking up and his claws growing sharper still.

IEN, having a good idea of what Wright’s been doing, is determined to put a stop to it. He casts his consciousness forward, reaching toward the Fletchling’s fluffy form. For his part, Wright is again waiting on IEN to make his move, but he’s still startled when his mind is probed by a thorny tendril of awareness. IEN searches out the latest technique that Wright’s used, and he easily slaps a mental lock onto it. Withdrawing, he notes through the veil of sand that Wright is about to dance as before, but pauses, frustrated, as the steps elude him. Wright tries to strike several poses to start off with, but none of them ring a bell.

Readying himself, IEN takes advantage of Wright’s struggle by budding a thick coat of fluffy white cotton spores. He gives himself a little shake, and the spores float merrily on their way … only to be promptly shredded to bits by the Sandstorm shield. Frowning, IEN can only look on in dismay, while his Sub watches impassively. Meanwhile, Wright keeps looking on, alert for any move IEN will make. Nothing comes zooming out to hit him, so he figures IEN’s busy doing who knows what to pump himself up. So he goes for another Swords Dance - or at least, he would, but the technique still remains tantalizingly out of reach. Both Pokemon huff, frustrated.

Dazel (xOo)
fletchling
Wright (M) Big Pecks
Health: 99%
Energy: 94%
Status: Itching to fight. Swords Dance Disabled (3 more actions). Att +4.
Actions: Swords Dance ~ nothing ~ nothing

MrKyurem (xOo)
Cacnea
Insert Euphoric Nickname (M) Sand Veil
Health: 46%
Energy: 71%
Status: Pondering his strategy. Has a Substitute with 10% health. Shielded by a Sandstorm (4 more actions). Att +2.
Actions: Substitute (10%) ~ Disable ~ Cotton Spore


Arena Notes:
- Both Pokemon are on the black hole planet.

Calculations:
- Wright’s health: 99%
- Wright’s energy: 95% - 1% (Swords Dance) = 94%
- Insert Euphoric Nickname’s health: 53% - 10% (Substitute) + 1% (Ingrain) + 1% (Ingrain) + 1% (Ingrain) = 46%
- Insert Euphoric Nickname’s energy: 81% - 5% (Substitute) - 4% (Disable) - 1% (Cotton Spore) = 71%
- Insert Euphoric Nickname’s Substitute: 10%

Other Notes:
- Wright outspeeds Insert Euphoric Nickname (62 > 35).
- Since Wright needed to wait to see what Insert Euphoric Nickname would do, IEN decided to just go ahead and make a Sub on the first action.
- While Cotton Spore would have been effective in a normal Sandstorm, the concentrated nature of Insert Euphoric Nickname’s Sandstorm shield made it all but impossible for the move to connect. (Note that special attacks won’t be affected, as the fact that they deal damage naturally means there is more force to push them through.)
- Incidentally, it occurred to me that flying into a concentrated Sandstorm would make Wright temporarily exposed to its ravages. This has been adjusted in the previous round, in which Wright has now lost a point of health.
- I don’t understand why Disable isn’t a psychic-type move; it invades the mind and everything.

Next Round:
- MrKyurem commands
- Dazel commands

Hm. Okay. That's mildly disappointing.

Right, here's the plan. First, I want you to use Nasty Plot - then, Nasty Plot again for good measure. Then, use Dark Pulse. Simple!

However, if at any point, your opponent attempts to attack you/your substitute, I want you to quickly retaliate with a Leech Seed. If they already have been seeded, use Counter.

Nasty Plot/Leech Seed ~ Nasty Plot/Leech Seed/Counter ~ Dark Pulse/Leech Seed/Counter
