Okay, okay, that screwed us up. Okay, Deneb will need to rest too. But we need to fix her from attacking us so much. Make a Substitute, a small one will do fine, since you're very weak. Finally, Chill 2 times

Substitute (10%) ~ Chill ~ Chill

Well. Alright, hate to be boring but since sound moves bypass substitutes, use Hyper Voice thrice again.

Hyper Voice x3

Nigel rubbed his eyes, which had begun to sting with tiredness, the bags beneath them sagging to a terrifying degree. He absolutely had to get some rest this round, or he was sure he'd lose his mind. Loath as he was to spend the precious energy, he eventually resolved to put up a substitute to keep Deneb busy while he rested his eyes. His arms dug into the soil, raising a sizable mound of it and patting it into shape; he hadn't the energy to make it life-sized, but it didn't matter, since it only needed to hold a fraction of his life force. Reluctantly, he touched his arm to it and imparted his own life energy, grimacing as the exertion worsened his fatigue even further, until the mound came to life, drawing itself into a cylinder and sprouting two stubby little dirt-arms.

Content that Deneb had something else to bother for a while, he curled up snugly behind his decoy and slowly slid his heavy eyelids shut. However, his opponent's cocky smirk didn't even falter. If Nigel thought that thing was going to block out her indomitable voice he must be more tired than he looked! She took a deep breath and belted out another deafening shriek, the deaf substitute remaining nonplussed. Nigel, however, was shaken out of his slumber in an instant, tears streaming down his face as he miserably attempted to plug his ears. Nothing he could do would block out the awful noise, nor the next, nor the next, and when Deneb finally quietened down for good the ringing in his ears was just as deafening. He shivered and twitched as he lay in the nearest approximation of the fetal position his anatomy would allow. He was either going to pass out or completely snap, and time would soon tell which would occur first.

Alright, let's go for broke, then. Earth Power, and use Hyper Voice if Nigel tries to chill. Chill if he uses Protect.

Earth Power / Hyper Voice / Chill x3

Well, Nigel, sorry, you are totally boned. Sorry bro. But let's go out with a bang. Use Swagger, to confuse this aggravating dino. Then, if she looks completely bewildered and starts like.....attacking herself and junk, use Chill. Otherwise, use Shadow Ball. For this third action, if she still seems bewildered, Chill again. But if you can't, waste your final peg of energy with Flash.

Swagger ~ Chill/Shadow Ball ~ Chill/Flash

The two Pokémon stared each other down, if only for as long as their eyes could remain open at any one time. Their exhaustion was unbearable, and only through their mutual hatred could they rise above it and continue battling. Deneb was first to muster an attack, sluggishly raising her foot and plunging it back down with a pathetic clump. The earth was still for a long, awkward moment, before eventually a crack reluctantly opened beneath her foot in response. It spread rapidly along the surface of the earth towards Nigel, suddenly cracking wide into a great wound. At the last second his substitute pushed him away, instantly incinerated to nothing by the lava bursting up where he just stood.

He landed from the shove with a hard thud and lay groaning on the floor, sorely tempted not to get back up again. Eventually he willed himself back to his feet, tottering towards Deneb in a slumberful daze. He tried his best to exaggerate his steps into a provocative, cocky strut, mumbling the most outrageous, infuriating boasts his worn-out brain could concoct, and Deneb was just barely able to summon the effort to be pissed off by it. She snarled and gnashed her teeth wearily, her eyes narrowing not from fatigue but from rage, determined to show that cocky little Litwick what for if it was the last thing she did.

Saying that, she felt it increasingly likely that it would be. The combination of her tiredness and her clumsy, enraged movements almost made her topple over as she lifted her foot for another stomp, but she just managed to steady herself and bring her foot down with all the fury she could muster. Again a great yawning chasm opened in the ground, the just-closed gash in the earth ripping itself open anew beneath Nigel's feet in the wake of a second burst of seething magma.

Nigel righted himself again, coughing up globs of molten rock, and weakly raised a hand, summoning a mysterious dark energy and forming it into a large sphere. Conjuring all the effort he could, he hurled it straight forward, and it careened through the air and straight into Deneb's chest, bursting with a flurry of dark mist and a considerable amount of force.

Deneb was furious. Dead on her feet, yes, but furious. So angry, in fact, her weariness didn't even bother her; she instinctively overcame it in her determination to smash her stupid foe to smithereens. She gritted her teeth and jerked her foot into the air, but gravity tugged at her ill-balanced body a second time and she wasn't quite quick-witted enough to thwart it in time. With a yelp she toppled and crashed to the ground, her head crashing hard into the earth. Moaning weakly, she dug her heel into the ground and tried to ease herself up, but it was no use. She just couldn't go on any more. Solemnly RespectTheBlade called her back to her ball, and Nigel, who by all rights ought to have been thrilled, was himself too exhausted to even process what had just happened. His eyelids were leaden, his every muscle burned and ached with exertion, his mind was enveloped by a thick fog of fatigue. Clearly it was a matter of minutes before he succumbed to the same fate as his opponent.


Flareth


Nigel ♂ <Flash Fire>
Health: 10% | Energy: 2%
Mood: too tired to even appreciate the hilarity of what he just saw.
Condition: Spd+2, SpDef-1
Swagger ~ Shadow Ball

RespectTheBlade


Deneb ♀ <Refrigerate>
Health: 8% | Energy: 0%
Mood: knocked out!
Condition: Atk+2, Def+2, SpAtk-2; confused (severe); badly poisoned (6% damage this round).
Earth Power ~ Earth Power ~ confused

Referee's notes
~ in my scale at least, attacking oneself in confusion consumes a little energy, and Deneb collapsed from exhaustion while doing so. Yeah.
~ I also reduce damage if a Pokémon doesn't have enough energy to get off an attack, though, so at least her remaining health was relatively high!

Calculations
~ Earth Power: 10% damage, 5% energy
~ Swagger: 4% energy
~ Earth Power #2: 10% damage, 5% energy
~ Shadow Ball: 10% damage, 3% energy
~ confused: 3% damage (self), 2% energy

Next round
~ RespectTheBlade sends out
~ Flareth attacks
~ RespectTheBlade attacks
