DQ: 5 Days
Damage Cap: 45%
Banned/Restricted Moves: Direct Healing Moves, OHKO's, Moves that require an external water or plant source, Chills restricted to 3/Pokemon
Arena Description: Evolution Mountain
In southern Kanto, almost everyone has heard of Stone Town, which lies at the base of Evolution Mountain. The battle will take place high up on the mountain, with no water or foliage around. Everything seems like a normal stone battlefield, however there is an extra effect. Due to the high volume of evolution stones within the mountain, the effects of any evolution stone held by a battler will have its effects doubled (i.e. In strong sunlight, a Sun Stone would restore 4% health and energy, instead of 2%).
Additional Rules: Unevolved Pokemon only

Hoohoo! Let's go, Lillibeth! Bust right through and come out on the other side of speed!

Okay, let's get started on our master plan. Open with Future Sight; this is an integral part of the strategy, so get it right! Then follow up with Power Gem, it hits for damage and helps you shoot gems more. Finally, end with Body Slam; it's more bouncy and is good exercise.

If you get targeted with a reflectable move, use Magic Coat. If you can't hit your target or your moves have somehow been disabled, fall back on Calm Mind. And whatever you do, don't embarrass me in front of the referee! Seducing the ref is also an integral part of the strategy, okay?

Okay Kitsune, start off by frying her with an Inferno. Next wait until she's used Power Gem and Spite her. If she for some reason doesn't use Power Gem then use Dark Pulse. Finally finish off with another Inferno if your first one missed, otherwise use Ominous Wind.

------------------------------​

Boing. Boing. Boing.

Grass King and the referee stare at Music Dragon's sendout in disbelief. The sound from their nightmares echoes around them as Lillibeth enthusiastically bounces up and down on the spot, throwing herself pearl-first at the tiny Litwick punching bag that Music Dragon's holding up for her pre-battle workout. "FLOAT LIKE A BUTTERFREE, STING LIKE A BEEDRILL!" he screams, completely oblivious to everyone else's impatience to get this battle started already.

Hours later (or so it seems), a resounding BANG finally echoes off the mountaintops as Lillibeth triumphs over her helpless foe. Music Dragon promptly whips out a Lampent punching bag from his backpack, but Kitsune has zero patience left for Lillibeth's antics. Stoking her internal flame, she plants her paws firmly into the ground and rears her head back as an orb of white-hot fire forms in her mouth. She releases it in front of her, where it hovers as she continues to breathe wispy tendrils of flame into it, watching it expand until suddenly the fire bursts outward, enveloping Lillibeth in a roaring inferno of blistering flame. The fire crackles, the Lampent punching bag pops, and Music Dragon jumps straight back, screaming "HOT! HOT! HOT!" as he dances from one foot to another, stamping out the two or three tiny, pathetic flames that managed to find their way to the grass beneath him. Horrible as his suffering must be, Lillibeth's is far worse; the Spoink too frantically hops from left to right, squealing in agony as the fire lashes relentlessly at her skin. Even after it finally burns itself out it leaves angry red welts all over her hide that throb painfully with every bounce.

At least there's no need for Lillibeth to get moving just yet. Slowing down her bouncing tempo, the Spoink stares off at some point just beyond her foe, pearl glowing light blue as she catches fragmented glimpses of the near future. Raising her tiny arms, she sends the energy in her pearl flying up past the mountaintops in a blue beam that disappears into the clouds. Lillibeth looks at Kitsune, and the Vulpix stares back at her and casually licks a forepaw, unimpressed. Fine, then. Lillibeth's pearl will tell a story of love and friendship, and Kitsune can see how she likes that. Her pearl lights up again, more fiercely this time, as she forces Rock-type energy from the stone below up her spring into it. With an extra-determined sproing, she leaps up and fires off a shimmering ray of pale pink light, which solidifies into a diamond shape with jagged edges that pierce into her foe's fur. Kitsune cries out in shock as the corners scrape up against her, wreaking havoc upon her perfectly-groomed fur. She is absolutely not going to stand for this level of disrespect. Nobody messes with the fur. Kitsune glares vengefully at her opponent, her eyes turning flat black as her six tails slowly swish back and forth. Abruptly her tails stand up straight and a shadowy purple mists drifts from them, snaking its way forth to curl around Lillibeth's body. Its touch is clammy and cold, and her pearl dims a little as she shivers violently, suddenly not wanting to use that move again any time soon.

Kitsune isn't done yet, though. Her tails begin quivering again, summoning up a cold, dark wind that somehow barely ruffles her fur as it gusts forth. As it passes over her, Lillibeth feels an eerie sensation of hands tugging at her skin, her spring, her arms, and... no, not her pearl!! With an indignant squeal the Spoink hops forth, building up her momentum with a series of experimental bounces, each of which makes her wince as her burns throb again, but she won't give in! Gritting her teeth against the pain of her wounds, she tests herself with one last leap before flinging herself straight onto her target. Lillibeth prides herself on being bulkier than she looks (her muscles are the ones that will make the future bright, after all), and she manages to crush the smaller Vulpix straight down into the ground with her weight. Shaking the lingering horror of the ghostly curse aside, Lillibeth rolls off of her and resumes bouncing very slowly on the spot, a gleeful grin spreading across her face as she notices how Kitsune seems unable to get her limbs to respond even to get back to her feet.

No! Not that! Not the " Boing Boing Boing"! (This has given me a great idea for another battle arena though.)

Kitsune, we must stop the bouncing at all costs! Since you burned her, lets go with a triple Hex. If you can't use Hex then use Ominous Wind. If she's protecting then use Howl.

Aha! It seems we've found their weakness: boing noises! I'll make a note of that, it will come in handy in the future.

But now, Lillibeth, it is time to enact the first part of our master plan! Remember your training: to defeat Vulpix, you must become Vulpix. Yes! It makes perfect sense! For how can you lose to your enemy if you are the enemy? Don't you see? Even if we lose, we win! They called me a fool at the academy... but we'll show them!

Study your opponent. The first thing that comes to mind is that she is not burning! A Vulpix does not burn, oh no! So neither must you! Use Heal Bell to rid yourself of your burn and become a little bit more like her.

You'll also notice that your opponent is holding a Fire Stone. We Covet it, yes we do! If you can get your hands on it, you will in fact be even more of a Vulpix than she is! Take it, take it for glory! If you can't convince her to give up her Fire Stone, try using the "please help me, there's something wrong with my trainer" plea. I've seen you do that before, it usually works.

And now, you should be ready to get into character! Role Play and become your enemy! Become victory!

------------------------------​

Man, this burn is really harshing Lillibeth's buzz. Her bouncing buzz. With each contraction of her spring the pain flares up, and this just will not do. The Spoink shakes her head as she continues to hop straight up and down, jangling the pearl that sits atop it. Her bouncing is kind of clumsy, so the sound isn't very delicate, but it does the job; as the sound washes over her, the red welts on her skin start to fade, until her skin is as pristine and unmarked as the surface of a brand new punching bag ready to be busted right through. Much better. Giving herself an oink of approval, Lillibeth turns to face her opponent... and immediately wishes she hadn't. The Vulpix's eyes seem to have grown twice their size, radiating eerie purple flames as her pupils glow a hellish red colour. She mutters something under her breath and again her six tails stand straight up, curls of dark energy trailing out of them to wrap Lillibeth in their chilling grasp. The Spoink wriggles uselessly against them, overcome by a feeling of cold dread as the mist squeezes her tighter and tighter, until it abruptly disappears as quickly as it came, leaving her shivering and terrified. As she struggles to collect herself, a familiar-looking pillar of blue light shoots down from the clouds to strike exactly the spot where Kitsune now stands, engulfing her in psychic energy that twists and stretches her body as she howls in pain.

Desperate for some trace of warmth, Lillibeth finds her eyes drawn to the Fire Stone hanging around Kitsune's neck. Resonating with the other evolution stones buried in the mountains, the stone is positively radiating light and heat, and Lillibeth decides that she must have it. Widening her eyes and tilting her head slightly to the side, she slowly boings up to her foe, her pearl taking on a rosy glow. "That stone... it would go so well with my pearl! See, they were meant to go together!" Kitsune just stares at her, unfazed, so Lillibeth ups her game a little.

"Pleeeeeease can I have it... please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please..."

Lillibeth begs and pleads and jabs her opponent repeatedly with her stylus until Kitsune finally pops, forced to shake the Fire Stone off her neck and reluctantly paw it over to Lillibeth in the name of fashion. Lillibeth employs just a liiiittle bit of psychic trickery to tie the string and perch the stone jauntily around her pearl, before gleefully ramming it into the Vulpix with a loud smack. It leaves a large circular mark with a Fire Stone-shaped depression in it on the Vulpix's fur, and Lillibeth giggles to herself as she bounces off before Kitsune can swipe her stone back.

Kitsune curses her opponent under her breath, feeling herself go red under her fur in embarrassment at being so utterly taken in. Surely there must have been some sort of vile devilry at work here... but Kitsune has access to ghostly powers of her own, and she's going to make Lillibeth pay for humiliating her like this! Overflowing with a burning desire for revenge, Kitsune throws back her head and howls, the sound echoing ominously about the mountaintops. With her right forepaw she draws one, two, three sigils into the dirt and touches each delicately with her nose, imbuing them with ghostly power. The temperature seems to drop several degrees as the shapes rise from the ground and rush toward their target, circling around the Spoink as they stretch and contort and triple in size. Kitsune chuckles darkly to herself at Lillibeth's terrified squeals as the ghostly sigils close in on her, exuding a coldness that even the Fire Stone can't keep at bay. She doesn't really know what goes on in there for the next few seconds (she's not that good with her occult powers... yet), but it surely can't be good.

Trembling and drenched in a cold sweat, Lillibeth lies awkwardly on her side, spring coiling and uncoiling uselessly. This battle's really taking its toll on her; those angry spirits seem to have sapped away even her will to bounce. Maybe she should just stay down... But then on the sidelines, Music Dragon stomps his foot, a manic look in his eyes, and screams out, "YOUR SWEAT WILL ONLY MAKE YOU STRONGER!!!"

The Spoink's pearl involuntarily lights up. It's true! Her trainer's right! She can't give up now! Filled with renewed determination, Lillibeth drags herself upright to study her opponent, as more of her trainer's words echo through her head.

To defeat Vulpix, you must become Vulpix!
Defending is the best attack! Do it!

Surely Kitsune can't hurt Lillibeth if she, too, masters the occult! It's brilliant! Lillibeth's pearl glows with psychic energy and the rest of the world disappears from around her as she concentrates on discerning her opponent's aura. Her body subconsciously continues to bounce to keep her heart beating, but the bouncing dwindles down to a much slower, almost hypnotic rate. Without really thinking about it she licks one of her hands and attempts to drag it down her face, but finds herself unable to reach. Her mind is filled with thoughts of curses, and revenge, and other generic Vulpix things, and her Fire Stone shimmers more brightly than before as her skin begins radiating heat. The one thing she doesn't copy is her opponent's struggle to concentrate as her muscles twitch and spasm uncontrollably beneath her until she ends up splayed on all fours on the ground, all thoughts of curses temporarily forgotten.

Spectacular! To complete a Role Play in so little time! You might just be a natural at this!

Okay, Lillibeth, let's start off with a Future Sight. That's a traditional Vulpix move. They are a very spiritual people, as everyone knows.

After that, it's time for the second part of our master plan. The first part was for you to become a Vulpix; the second part is for your enemy to become a Spoink! Ahaha! It's brilliant! If you're the Vulpix and she's the Spoink, that makes us win if we lose and lose if we win! And then all we have to do is lose, and we win! Ahaha!

Use your Psychic powers to transform your enemy into a pig!

... What? What do you mean, you can't do that? Come on! Let me see that ultimate move!

... Look, this works, okay? This is definitely something you can do with Psychic. I'm like 99% certain there's a precedent for it somewhere in the ASB Archives. It's gonna work. This is good. Yes. Okay. Let's do this. It'll work.

Use Psychic to break into your opponent's mind and scramble everything up in there until she thinks she's a pig. How hard can it be? What kind of discount Vulpix are you anyway if you can't even brainwash people, huh? Do it!

Oh, and one last thing: some conditionals. If you get targeted with a status move at any point, bounce it right back with Magic Coat. Your soft, fluffy, furry Magic Coat... mm... And if you're unable to target your opponent with Psychic for whatever reason, use Splash instead to make lots of boing noises. Lots of them. Lots and lots. I will help out with some boing noises of my own!

Swish. Swish. Swish.

Kitsune looks on in disgust as her foe attempts to sway her non-existent foxtails by shaking her butt in a most ridiculous fashion and then proceeds to cycle through a series of frankly insulting poses that are not elegant or Vulpix-like in the slightest. This display is absolutely disrespectful to her species (which, she might add, was discovered long before Lillibeth's) and Kitsune decides that it must be punished. Her eyes glint almost imperceptibly blue as she focuses on her foe, preparing herself to probe Lillibeth's mind and stop this behaviour — but instead of squealing in horror and reverting to her normal self at once, Lillibeth lets out a giggle that she quickly covers up with an attempt at a purr, her fur sparkling with a glimmering sheen that even a Vulpix of Kitsune's caliber cannot hope to achieve. And then Kitsune finds her own mind invaded, the bright blue glow of her eyes turning inward, and suddenly she's overcome with the nagging feeling of having forgotten something important. She's not sure what it is, but something's just... missing, leaving a hole in her memory where she's certain there was something before.

Well, no matter. Bowing her head, the Vulpix closes her eyes and concentrates on forcing the void in her mind outward, where it manifests physically as waves of purple energy. The waves compress and expand, eerily squeezing their way through the air to connect with Lillibeth's pearl. Lillibeth squeals and covers her eyes, her Vulpix facade temporarily forgotten as the cold and clammy dark energy washes over her, filling her mind with negative and distinctly un-bouncy thoughts. She soon regains her composure, however, and meeting Kitsune's eyes the Spoink launches a mental assault of her own, prodding at a neuron here and a synapse there, and... whoops! She didn't mean to hit the brain stem so hard there... geez. Lillibeth shudders. That's gotta hurt.

And hurt it does, but instead of cursing loudly in response to the pain, Kitsune feels the strangest urge to... to... Oink. Snort. Snuffle. She bobs her tails slowly up and down, imitating the Spoink's bouncing movements, and... what on earth is going on here?! Shaking her head vigorously to clear her mind, the Vulpix focuses hard to summon up the worst thoughts she can muster. Gross, sticky mud that oozes all over her tail spring, making it hard to keep bouncing. Losing her precious pearl. Watching her trainer eat bacon— wait, what? Since when does Kitsune mind when her trainer eats bacon? That tiny objection in her mind is soon quieted, however, as Lillibeth recovers herself enough to intrude upon her mind again, a bit more carefully this time, and Kitsune resigns herself to a life of carefree pigdom...

"ATTACK IS THE BEST DEFENSE! DO IT!"

Music Dragon's manic grin is making Kitsune a little nervous, but despite his words Lillibeth doesn't seem about to attack, so the Vulpix gets right to it. Another image of roasted pig with an apple sticking out of its mouth swims in her mind, and this time she doesn't question it but simply beams the essence of her thoughts outward, the air perceptibly cooling from the influx of negative energy. The pulses of black energy strike against the sheen of Lillibeth's soft fur, and Kitsune can't help feeling a little jealous, but this isn't any ordinary sparkle: as the darkness passes through it, Lillibeth's fur glows even more brightly until it's almost blinding. With an uncharacteristic howl, the Spoink releases everything she's taken in in a devastating swirl of rainbow light that buffets Kitsune backwards into an inconveniently-placed rock.

Panting heavily, Lillibeth grits her teeth and braces herself for yet another assault. This one had better be the last, or she's going to place a particularly nasty hex on her trainer later...! The Spoink screws her eyes shut in concentration as the final wave of dark energy overwhelms her, collecting energy to fuel her attack that makes her fur stand up on end before she lets loose a blast of sparkling light that cuts through the darkness to strike her foe. Fox stares at pig, or pig stares at fox, or fox stares at pig staring at pig staring at fox, both at the end of their rope, but finally it's Kitsune who gives in, closing her eyes and slumping to her side with a last defeated oink.
