Eifie vs Music Dragon

Arena:
Quote:
Format: 1vs1 single
Style: super-cool
DQ: 7 days
Damage Cap: 49%
Banned/Restricted Moves: Direct healing, Attract, Chill, Super Fang. Cute Charm and anything else that might cause infatuation have no effect. Moves that cause sleep as their primary effect are banned, and moves that cause sleep as a secondary effect have that secondary effect removed.

Arena Description: Tart Top! There's like a huge cute circular cream thing in the center with a cherry on top. If a Pokémon gets a lot of cream stuff on itself its speed is lowered by 2 stages until it gets the stuff off I guess. Why not. Stuff needed for moves like Surf and whatever magically appears for the purpose of the move and then disappears after.

Additional Rules: Music Dragon will be using Doctor Proctor the Exeggcute and I will be using Mimsy the Sentret, so we can skip sendouts.

Additional additional rules: please don't be like a gazillion times better than me :c

Thanks, Keldeo! :D

Hey Mimsy, wouldn't it be fun to like, Fire Punch Doctor Proctor into that giant tart? You're kind of embarrassingly slow, so let's even things up by getting him all covered up in sugary goodness. That's just how you like your eggs, yeah?

What's that? You prefer your eggs scrambled, you say? Fine, let's just Fling an egg of your own into the mess! It's going to be so absurdly weak but it's funny, so it'll be worth it. Trust me. Would I lie to you?

Finally... why the hell do you learn Whirlpool? I don't care how unstrategic this is, let's get him caught up in a whirlpool of goo or something. Really whisk those eggs. I meant it to be in the spirit of the arena for you to be able to use/improvise any attack, so I think this'd be fun, but if it's just not feasible then Knock Off that Leaf Stone.

Screw complicated attempts to understand what goes on in the mind of one with a PhD, Mimsy. They're just too far above our level. So just Fire Punch the second action if you're unable to punch him properly the first. I really want him slowed down, you hear? If you're unable to hit with whatever attack, just Focus Energy.

I sure hope something horrible that I didn't feel like watching out for doesn't happen to you this round! If so, well, better luck next time, I guess! You'll be fine, I promise. Don't look at me like that!

Fire Punch (into tart) / Focus Energy ~ Fling / Fire Punch (into tart) / Focus Energy ~ Whirlpool (of goo) / Knock Off / Focus Energy

Oh, you asked a question when you accepted this. The battle actually takes place on the circle surrounding the bottom of the tart (like the stage in Mario Kart DS, if you've played it). In Mario Kart you can like, drive up the tart to jump into the air but here I think we'll just sort of be battling around and next to the tart and if someone ~falls in~ (oh no!) then their speed is lowered for a while, or something. I'm assuming you probably haven't played Mario Kart DS, so does this make sense?

(perhaps there are other creative uses for this giant pile of cream, by the way! who knows what will happen :o)

What do you mean, "we'll just sort of be battling around and next to the tart"? No. Doctor Proctor will be battling on top of the tart like the regal eggs he is, and I myself will be battling inside it. By which I mean I'll be eating it. Eating all of it. It's - it's for tactical reasons, you understand...!

Doctor, it's time to set our master plan into motion! To defeat Sentret, you must become Sentret! Use Ro - oh, wait, no, these are my other notes. Hang on, I got my papers mixed up... uh...

... okay, here we go. To defeat Sentret, you must become a sentry! You see that cherry right there, on top of the tart, right there in the middle? Yes, that cherry. I'm going to eat it. Uh, but before that happens, I want you to Teleport on top of it. That should give you an excellent vantage point from which to rain egg on your unsuspecting enemy.

We need to make sure you don't fall off, so Ingrain yourself into the cherry. It's nutritious, too! Cherry is a fruit, right? So it's healthy, the tart is healthy. You can't judge me for eating it if it's got a fruit on top.

Okay, once you're properly fastened to the cherry, use Drool... uh, no, wait, I mean... oh, this arena is just so distracting... right, you were supposed to rain egg on your enemy! Use Egg Bomb!

Bonus points if the Lucky Egg attaches to your body and becomes a seventh egg. Mm, the Seventh Egg, that sounds like a horror movie about eggs and the occult. I would eat that. Watch that! I meant watch, not eat. Sorry, I'm a bit dental caries - I mean absent-minded! Absent-minded, is what I mean.

When the league Abra teleports the two trainers and referee into "Tart Top", they aren't expecting to be dropped onto it from a very large number of feet off the ground. Thankfully, the weird cloud-turtle thing with the flags catches them and lets them down softly to the tart, but not without banging the trainers a few times with said implements. Eifie and Music Dragon take their places on opposite sides of the tart and release their Pokemon. Lucky Egg tied around her neck, Mimsy scampers immediately to the tart, tilting her head at it inquisitively, and Doctor Proctor attempts to appear vaguely science-y while examining the strange heart-shaped patterns on the border of the tart. Suddenly hungry, Music Dragon pokes the tart a few times, only to find that it's rock-solid and smells faintly of… motor oil? Huh. Seeing that the battlers have settled, the referee, who's currently being held hostage by the cloud-turtle, waves her flags to start the first round!

Field Notes
-The tart is unharmed (so far).

Round 1

As quick as a sentient squad of eggs can be, Doctor Proctor warps onto the cherry, steadying himself with one egg. Below him, Mimsy is eager to start the battle off on the right foot! Wobbling slightly on her tail, she wreaths one tiny clenched paw in the Ultimate Flame and prepares to give Doctor Proctor a blow for the ages, but the Exeggcute is nowhere to be found. Mimsy looks sharply to and fro, attempting to figure out where Doctor Proctor is, but her trainer's screeches of "HE'S ON THE CHERRY! YOU CAN DO IT!!!" alert her that she's got no hope of bringing vengeance down on Doctor Proctor yet. Instead, the Sentret closes her eyes and lowers herself to the ground, taking a moment to calm down. Her trainer is right! She can do it!!!

But everyone on the field is oblivious to the real havoc that's taken place: Music Dragon had attempted to bite off part of the tart. His protests, alternately that it was for science and that it was part of his master plan, do nothing to soften the cloud-turtle's blows.

Unaware of his trainer's current misery, Doctor Proctor examines the cherry critically. While it doesn't look too appetizing, he has got to admit that it must be pretty nutrient-filled. The imprint in his Leaf Stone flashes as roots sprout spontaneously from the cracks in his eggs, embedding themselves into the cherry. But then a Lucky Egg, sparkling with Dark energy, comes randomly sailing up from below, followed by yells of "YEAH, MIMSY!" The strange stone manages to hit a tender young vine, and Doctor Proctor howls as the black aura eats away at an eggshell.

Far below, Mimsy reckons his screams must be because of the awesome pain that her attack surely caused, but in reality they're a combination of "I don't want this weird egg what are you doing" and "[deleted] you, that hurt!". Even so, the Exeggcute's nourishing vines are still leeching energy from the fruit, just as his trainer, deprived of the tart, is executing his ultimate technique—Drool.

Mimsy doesn't seem to be coming up to get that egg anytime, so Doctor Proctor thinks he should only be polite and send it right back at her. Steepling his eggs nefariously and letting out a bone-chilling cackle, the Exeggcute imbues the Lucky Egg with crackling white energy and tosses it down, aiming at the tan ring on Mimsy's chest. A small explosion follows shortly after, raining the tart with bits of sharp shrapnel and singed fur.

Finally, the Sentret manages to pick herself up. After dusting herself off with her tail, she glowers up at the cherry where Doctor Proctor's vines are embedded. If he's really bent on being a sentry, she'll put him through the toughest of tests and see how he reacts then…! While Doctor Proctor's cherry isn't water, the cream is liquid enough that Mimsy can perform the ancient ritual that her mother's mother learned from her mother's mother's mother and so forth, creating a swirling vortex of sugary white goo. The horrified Doctor Proctor, unable to detach his vines from the cherry, is sucked into the center and covered in the non-nutritious goop. Smiling at her work, Mimsy looks back at her trainer for further encouragement, but Eifie is stroking an invisible goatee, wondering what else Mimsy could use the cream for…

Eifie (O)
sentret
Mimsy (f) <Keen Eye> @ Lucky Egg
Health: 90%
Energy: 90%
Currently: Satisfied. Getting pumped.
Used: Focus Energy ~ Fling ~ Whirlpool
espeon Eifie: 99 health / 97 energy / Used: CHEER MIMSY ON ~ CHEER MIMSY ON ~ theorize about further uses for tart

Music Dragon (O)
Exeggcute
Doctor Proctor (m) <Chlorophyll> @ Leaf Stone
Health: 95%
Energy: 90%
Currently: ABORT MISSION. Ingrained in the cherry (+1% health/action). Trapped in a whirlpool of cream (-1 Speed and 1% damage/action for 4 more actions).
Used: Teleport ~ Ingrain ~ Egg Bomb
dragonair Music Dragon: 94 health / 96 energy / Used: eat tart (failed) ~ Drool ~ Drool

Field Notes
-There's an exploded Lucky Egg near Mimsy. (If you want to pick it up I can un-explode it or something.)
-The cream topping has been stirred up.

calcs
Mimsy: 100 - 10 (Egg Bomb) = 90
100 - 4 (Focus Energy) - 2 (Fling) - 4 (Whirlpool) = 90
Eifie: 100 - 1 (Flag Attack) = 99
100 - 1 (CHEER MIMSY ON) - 1 (CHEER MIMSY ON) - 1 (theorize about future uses for tart) = 97
Doctor Proctor: 100 - 4 (Fling) + 1 (Ingrain) - 2 (Whirlpool) - 1 (Whirlpool) + 1 (Ingrain) = 95
100 - 2 (Teleport) - 3 (Ingrain) - 5 (Egg Bomb) = 90
MD: 100 - 1 (Flag Attack) - 5 (Super Flag Attack) = 94
100 - 2 (eat tart) - 1 (Drool) - 1 (Drool) = 96

Action Notes
-Mimsy used Focus Energy on the first action because she couldn't reach Doctor Proctor.
-Mimsy Flung her Lucky Egg away on the second action.
-Fling was a critical hit.
-So Whirlpool on the last action would be a bit of a long shot, but it rolled literally the best thing possible for its accuracy check, so I had it surround the cherry instead of Doctor Proctor. Doctor Proctor is effectively trapped, but the speed drop is lower (higher?) than the normal penalty for being stuck in the cream, and Mimsy had to use extra energy since the cream wasn't as watery as water.
-Doctor Proctor still outspeeds Mimsy; 25 > 20.

MD commands next.

At last, time for my Master Plan!!!

Mimsy, start with a Hone Claws. Then I want you to Rollout, go in circles around the tart to build up your momentum (and hopefully the speed might help you avoid some of that last egg bomb!), and finally Rollout your way up the tart to knock that cherry straight off it! I do like my eggs crushed into the ground with cherries on top...

Stop your Rollout after that, I guess. It'd be fun to keep going next round, but I have other egg-cooking plans for you!

Mimsy: Hone Claws ~ Rollout (in circles, avoid Egg Bomb) ~ Rollout (dethrone cherry)

Lastly, what is with all this attempted seduction of eif MD has going on >:( I will have none of it! On with the Master Plan!!!

Eifie: Magic Coat ~ Charm ~ Trump Card

Field Notes
-There's an exploded Lucky Egg near Mimsy.

Round 2

Before either Pokemon can act, Music Dragon summons blue-red draconic energy and starts to dance to an unheard beat, which quickly becomes heard as music spontaneously begins to play, while also boasting about his amazing qualities, singing to the music, and winking suggestively; surely any females in the vicinity would be totally enraptured by the gloriousness. But Eifie has already prepared a reflective shield, which blocks Music Dragon's display totally from view.

The song and dance, both literally and figuratively, are cut short when Doctor Proctor throws a sparkling ball of energy down from his cherry, completely missing his opponent and causing a few cracks to open in the road around the tart. However tough it might be, it's just not used to handling explosive balls of Normal energy. But wait, isn't there one of those special box-items that causes an explosion? Maybe the road is weak to Normal?? The ref makes a mental note to look into it later. The Exeggcute is oblivious to all of this, buffeted by the towering cream-pool surrounding him but sapping energy from the cherry beneath him.

Meanwhile, having observed Music Dragon sharpening his teeth on the side of the tart, Mimsy whets her claws on it, swiping at the material until her nails glimmer. Perhaps she should market Tart Top as a nail polish; she could have her own brand and everything! The Sentret glances over at her trainer for approval, but Eifie is busy trying to win the tired Music Dragon over with all the charm she can muster.

By chance, the cream surrounding Doctor Proctor subsides just enough that he can more precisely build up and aim his next attack. Mimsy is curled up and rolling around the track gleefully to build up momentum, just like the kart riders she's seen on her trainer's DS. The ball of white energy still hits her squarely, though, as the music starts to play again, and Doctor Proctor does as much of a victory dance he can as the Whirlpool whips back up to speed.

Below him, Mimsy continues to careen around the track, though the focus she gained earlier prevents her from crashing into a blob of cream like her opponent's third (you're my) Egg Bomb does, splattering goo all over the roadway. After a few words of encouragement to her still-rolling Pokemon, Eifie walks over to Music Dragon and prepares to fight back against her dire situation with ferocity and… well, she's not particularly tired, and he seems to be doing worse, so she just ends up tapping him lightly on the head.

The Sentret changes course just in time to avoid the cream-and-cherry splatter, turning up and onto the tart. Mimsy uncurls briefly, sparkling with energy, as her trainer shakes the Wii remote. She slows slightly as she crashes into the cream, but the momentum is enough to knock Doctor Proctor off the tart. As he sails down, still attached to the cherry, the Exeggcute hopes his eggs don't crack upon landing. (Though they don't, the Doctor still finds it's rather hard to right yourself when you're a mass of eggs tied to a cherry.)

MD: 94 - 4 (Trump Card) = 90
96 - 10 (Swagger + Captivate + Dragon Dance) = 86

Action Notes
-Egg Bomb missed on actions 1 and 3. I enforced a lower accuracy but higher energy cost for Rollout on the second action since Mimsy was commanded to dodge while Rollouting (Rollingout?), but it still hit.
-Doctor Proctor was freed from the Whirlpool by Rollout on action 3 and is now next to the tart.
-I docked 2 points from Rollout's damage because of the creampool, and lowered both Pokemon's speed because of it.
-Swagger + Captivate + Dragon Dance took 10% energy and would have given the target -4 Special Attack if they were the opposite gender and raised the user's Attack and Speed by 1 each. The former part was bounced by Magic Coat and failed.
-Typo in Hone Claws' description: "The user sharpens is claws or blades"

Eifie commands next.

Too tired to think of decent commands...

Excellent, Mimsy! You know, MD seems pretty desperate for a meal, there... why don't we help him out a bit? Raw eggs aren't so tasty, though, so let's fry them up with a Flamethrower and get them nice and ready. If the Doctor so rudely teleports away again or in some other way makes himself hittable with Hyper Voice but not Flamethrower, scream away. And if you can't use your attack or hit him at all, make yourself a medium Substitute.

Then, you know, I don't think you've melted those eggs enough. Try melting the Doctor's heart with Charm! Same idea about Hyper Voice if you can't Charm him or if he has a Substitute, and if you can't use your attack or reach him at all go with Hone Claws.

Finally, let's freeze our dish into a stunning display with Ice Beam! ... What do you mean, that's not edible anymore? A desperate dragon will try anything! You haven't seen his brick-breaking shenanigans! Same thing as before with Hyper Voice and Hone Claws. Man, I wish you had something to increase your ridiculous Speed.

Mimsy: Flamethrower / Hyper Voice / Substitute (15%) ~ Charm / Hyper Voice / Hone Claws ~ Ice Beam / Hyper Voice / Hone Claws

Eifie: Yawn ~ Yawn ~ Snore

Mm... I do like eggs... maybe they've got a point, Doctor... maybe you should come over here and let me chew on you for a bit...

Wait, what am I saying? No! They're trying to turn us against each other, using my one weakness - food! We can't let that happen! Quickly, we need to devise another master plan, uh... okay, let's see, what have we got here... there's a tart... use Tart Attack...? No, that's not it... but there's a giant cherry... uh... oh! I've got it! We'll just do what they did and use Rollout - but do it even better! I mean, you've got a whole cherry attached to you; that's what I call a real Rollout! You know what that means, Doctor? It means it's time for Katamari Damacy!! Na na na!

That cherry does look pretty heavy, but you've got the Strength to set it in motion. Don't worry, do your best! Chu chu!

Round 3

Eifie starts the round with a long, loud yawn. Suddenly sleepy, Music Dragon follows suit, and Eifie yawns again, making Music Dragon yawn again, making Eifie yawn again, making Music Dragon suddenly roar like a roaring dragon! Intimidated by Music Dragon's really weird yawn, Eifie falls asleep. Music Dragon then also falls asleep. When the ref yells their names, they don't respond; it's probably a good thing that they both gave their commands before the round.

But Doctor Proctor is undeterred by his trainer's sudden predicament. Despite the vines linking him to it, the Exeggcute manages to push the cherry over in a swirl of Normal energy, and from there it's a matter of momentum. Mimsy yells in surprise as the cherry, Doctor Proctor attached, barrels into her stomach, rolls away, then tips back towards her in preparation for another attack.

Mimsy retaliates with a burst of flame, coincidentally hitting the young vine that she hit earlier with her Lucky Egg. But once she lets up, the glaring Doctor Proctor comes at her again even faster, surrounded with brown-and-gray Rock energy and fueled by white-hot revenge. That had been his cherry throne, dammit!—and the sheer force of his six eggs knocks Mimsy flat on her back, striking an especially tender spot. The Sentret shrieks and tries to bat Doctor Proctor off; he's too tired to resist and simply rolls to a halt afterwards, tuckered out.

Nursing her wound, Mimsy wonders why her Flames of Passion and Revenge just weren't enough to stop Doctor Proctor's rampage… Perhaps brute force isn't the way to accomplish this. Attempting a smile, Mimsy waddles over to her tipped-over opponent and tries to look as heart-meltingly cute as she possibly can. What a sweet little Sentret! Despite her earlier grievances, Doctor Proctor can't help but feel like he should pull his punches a bit; he and the cloud-turtle overhead coo in tandem, and Mimsy has to turn away so they don't see her smirk.

Unnoticed by the engaged battlers, Eifie shifts in her sleep before bellowing out a loud snore that turns every head in the vicinity (all six, in Doctor Proctor's case) and manages to startle Music Dragon awake. Glaring at Eifie, he summons mystical power and tears a hole in hyperspace before gesturing very menacingly to it, which somehow hurts Eifie. Doctor Proctor simply wails "BUT THAT'S NOT POSSIBLE" as Music Dragon teleports back to his original position and a beam of frost slams into the exact place Mimsy hit with her Flamethrower?! "What the what," protests one egg desperately as the others screech in pain. Mimsy just smiles and summons more ice; would he like another serving, maybe?

Exeggcute
Doctor Proctor (m) <Chlorophyll> @ Leaf Stone
Health: 60%
Energy: 63%
Currently: Praying for hax. Ingrained in the cherry (+1% health/action). -2 Attack.
Used: Strength + Rollout ~ Rollout ~ nothing
dragonair Music Dragon: 85 health / 80 energy / -1 Attack, +1 Speed / Used: Growl ~ (asleep) ~ Hyperspace Hole

Field Notes
-There's an exploded Lucky Egg near Mimsy.
-The cream topping has been stirred up, but the cherry is on its side next to the tart.
-Parts of the road have been cracked or damaged by explosions.
-One of the blobs of cream has been splattered all over the road.

calcs
Mimsy: 80 - 7 (Strength + Rollout) - 17 (Rollout) = 56
83 - 5 (Ice Beam) - 2 (Charm) - 5 (Flamethrower) = 71
Eifie: 99 - 6 (Hyperspace Hole) = 93
91 - 4 (Yawn) - 4 (Snore) = 83
Doctor Proctor: 91 - 17 (Ice Beam) + 1 (Ingrain) + 1 (Ingrain) - 17 (Flamethrower) + 1 (Ingrain) = 60
75 - 5 (Strength + Rollout) - 7 (Rollout) = 63
MD: 90 - 5 (Snore) = 85
86 - 1 (Growl) - 5 (Hyperspace Hole) = 80

Action Notes
-Flamethrower, Ice Beam, and Rollout were critical hits. Which one of you has been praying to the RNG gods?
-Strength + Rollout increased Rollout's initial base power by some, and made it easier to roll with the cherry (which increased Rollout's final damage by 2 and final energy by 2.)
-Both trainers were asleep for the second action, and then Eifie's Snore woke both of them up.
-Doctor Proctor would've gotten -1 Speed if he had rolled into the cream, but he passed both checks.

MD commands next.

I actually have tried leaving an offering to the random number gods, but it turns out they don't take Monopoly notes either. But you do, don't you, Keldeo? Yeeessss... look at this perfectly legal tender... I bet it's your favorite currency. And all this shiny money could be yours! But only if this battle goes well, if you know what I'm saying... I'm saying that I will slightly illegally give you some money in exchange for an unfair advantage, capisce?

Now, Doctor! I'm honestly somewhat disappointed that you're letting that Charm get to you - I myself would never suffer an Attack drop from something so ridiculous - but perhaps we can use it to our advantage. Let's open with Leaf Storm; it'll leave you weakened, but then you can follow up with Power Swap to turn that into an advantage!

Finally, finish with Bullet Seed, which is definitely going to hit five times once I... persuade... the referee to lend us a hand.

Actually, let's play it safe and just bribe everyone.

Doctor Proctor: Leaf Storm ~ Power Swap ~ Bullet Seed
Music Dragon: Pay Day @ Keldeo ~ Pay Day @ Eifie ~ Pay Day @ Floaty Cloud-Turtle Guy

Just checking before I post commands - the Doctor isn't locked into Rollout since the duration wasn't specified, is he?

I haven't actually thought about this before, but the Database doesn't say anything about locking in. It just says that Rollout can be used consecutively to increase power.

There's a previous ruling here, and I'd prefer if you weren't locked in, but I just want to be sure before I command assuming you aren't so Mimsy doesn't have the Doctor rolling all around on her instead! :C

I assumed Doctor would have stopped rolling since he was forced to not do anything on the third action, meaning mechanics-wise that it's not "consecutive" and flavor-wise that he's lost all his momentum and wouldn't keep going if he wasn't commanded to.

All right, thanks! Now, time to execute my new Master Plan!!!™ Ambidex Edition!!! (I never got around to finding a nice Zero Jr. avatar :C)

It goes as follows.

Quick Attack your way to safety. Behind the cherry or behind one of the mini-creampuffs with the strawberries on it surrounding the tart, whatever works. Get something between you and the Doctor. Apparently those are rock-solid and in any case kart drivers bounce off them without losing speed so the cherry (which is preferable) or one of the strawberries should be enough to shield you from a Leaf Storm and a Bullet Seed since the Doctor is ingrained to his giant cherry and thus cannot move! He is naught but a sitting eggs ripe for the cooking! Muahahaha!

Then, uh, you gotta Protect yourself from that Power Swap. Sorry man. Not much I can do there. Learn some more interesting support moves, will ya?

Finally, once the Bullet Seed has stopped, U-Turn your way out from your hiding place and laugh at that sweet, sweet 4x weakness. Horrible somehow pun intended.

Quick Attack (hide behind cherry/strawberry) ~ Protect ~ U-Turn

edit: Oh no! I forgot my own commands!

Eifie: Amnesia ~ Flail ~ Dragon Ascent

Round 4

When the referee blows her whistle to signal the start of the round, Doctor Proctor starts to gather energy, shuddering and glowing green. Not wanting to take whatever's coming, Mimsy sprints behind a strawberry, and then, with an ominous crack of lightning from the thunderclouds overhead, Music Dragon yells, "ACCIO MONOPOLY MONEY!"

Following which the ref is bombarded with colorful banknotes valid in a country called "Monopolyland". What a great get-rich-quick scheme! The ref sends out a Crobat and gives her directions to take a few bills to the bank. Meanwhile, using her immense Psychic power, Eifie has forced herself to forget… well, something. She doesn't really remember, but she feels like she's sort of stronger? Maybe?

At any rate, the thunderclouds crackle again, and Doctor Proctor's vines suddenly sprout and bloom, petals and leaves uncurling quicker than naturally possible and sharpening into sliver-thin thorns. The imprint in his Leaf Stone glows green as a howling wind picks up the spines and sweeps through the arena, straight towards… Wait, where did Mimsy go? Well, if Doctor Proctor doesn't release his attack soon, he'll have wasted one perfectly good sinister thundercrack. With a sudden yell, the Exeggcute increases the whirlwind's speed, and the plant bits shred themselves into tiny barbs that carve into Mimsy's hiding spot. Seeds, cream, and strawberry juice fly everywhere.

Then the wind dies down as suddenly as it came, and when she's sure Doctor Proctor has exhausted his energy buildup, Mimsy has the nerve to peek out of her hiding spot and laugh. Quickly realizing what the Exeggcute is preparing to do to her, she summons a clear shield of energy, and Doctor Proctor's attempts to infiltrate her mind bounce harmlessly off, leaving him frustrated and just as tired as before.

As soon as Mimsy lets down her dome, the strawberry is peppered with bursts of tiny seeds going thunk, thunk, thunk-thunk, thunk-thunk-thunk—wait. Is Doctor Proctor using Fibonacci Bullet Seed?! The Sentret peeps out from behind her strawberry, only to shriek in pain and quickly withdraw as a strawberry-splattered round of seeds hits her ear. Chagrined that he only got one good hit in, Doctor Proctor strains against the cherry, attempting to aim a better shot, but to no avail.

Meanwhile, his trainer isn't having the same problem with throwing another stack of Monopoly money at Eifie, who retaliates with a sound slap, and then the cloud-turtle, who smugly piles all the money it can catch onto its cloud.

Once Mimsy is certain Doctor Proctor is all out of seeds to toss at her, she leaps out, surrounded by an acid-green aura of Bug energy, and scampers towards her opponent. Right when Doctor Proctor thinks she's going to outright tackle him, Mimsy whirls to face the opposite direction, dealing a swiping blow with her tail, and runs back to the strawberry.

Angered by the Sentret's continued evasive maneuvers, Doctor Proctor pulls again on the cherry and finally manages to tip it over… resulting in nothing but two mouthfuls of dirt. Mimsy gives him a smug glance from the strawberry as he pushes himself back upright and stews silently, but then Eifie turns into a freaking dragon and takes a few vicious swipes at her pile of Monopoly money while yelling "ACCIO SPIRIT OF MEGA RAYQUAZA," or something. As the referee brings her flags down to end the round, her Crobat returns with a piece of paper saying "Please tell Music Dragon to cease and desist." Well, it was worth a try.

MD: 85 - 1 (Flail) - 11 (Dragon Ascent) = 75 (capped)
80 - 2 (Pay Day) - 2 (Pay Day) - 2 (Pay Day) = 74

Action Notes
-there are /zero/ good rabbit puns tbh
-Mimsy was grazed by a single hit of Bullet Seed since her and Doctor Proctor's speeds are so similar, which was a critical hit. (Bullet Seed's energy was calculated for three hits.)
-U-turn was a critical hit.
-Power Swap was blocked by Protect.
-Everyone gets $1 extra at the end of the battle as a result of MD's Pay Days, if the bank is willing to fund it..?
-Damage cap for trainers is 10%, I don't want any of you fainting :(

Eifie commands next.

YOU GO GIRL!!! \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/

Okay, I am so tired of this Ingrain thing. Lettuce blast at those roots with a Flamethrower and see if you can burn them up (and him, too!). If he makes himself unhittable in some way, Mimic the Power Swap from earlier, since Mimic doesn't actually use the attack on the action it's mimicking. Next, if he's still Ingrained, Slash those roots to shreds. If Flamethrower didn't hoppen before, use it now. If you carrot hit him (kill subs) or he's no longer Ingrained, Mimic Power Swap. Finally, Knock Off that annoying Leaf Stone! If he's still Ingrained and you can reach with Slash, slash the roots up instead, and if you carrot reach him at all and haven't used Mimic on Power Swap yet, do so.

HAVE A NICE TRAP!!!

Mimsy: Flamethrower / Mimic (Power Swap) ~ Slash / Flamethrower / Mimic (Power Swap) ~ Knock Off / Slash / Mimic (Power Swap)

Eifie: rabbit puns ~ rabbit puns ~ tickle
