Negrek vs. Mawile

Okie mudkip! I'm gonna call you Flop for this battle cause nameless pokes make me sad.

Unfortunately mawile have too many options for us to be super tactical so we're just gonna be pretty straight-forward here. We'll go Earth Power, Scald, and Earth Power, subbing in Surf if there are clones. If they try to hide underground, just follow 'em down, you're small enough to fit in any holes they dig. If they protect, or are otherwise unhittable, build up some Barriers, unless taunted, then just go with your attacking option.

After withdrawing their fainted Pokémon from the battle, the two trainers each select a Poké Ball from their bags and prepare for the next bout. pathos tosses a borrowed Poké Ball into the air, and as it opens, it releases a ray of light that coalesces into the shape of small quadrupedal Pokémon. The Mudkip looks back towards his trainer, expecting to see a familiar face but instead finding a complete stranger. pathos gets down on one knee and gives the Mudkip a reassuring pat on the head. Mawile then throws his ball onto the field, and his namesake Pokémon emerges from within. Theo the Mawile jeers at his opponent and then spins around to display his large jaw-like appendage. The Mudkip, who had been given the nickname “Flop” by his new trainer, gulps a little after glancing at his opponent’s razor-sharp teeth. Both trainers give their Pokémon their starting commands, and the referee blows his whistle to begin the round.

After hearing the whistle, Theo immediately takes action. He dances a warrior’s dance, lowering his stance and closing his eyes to focus on increasing his inner strength. Flop stares at the Mawile’s dance in awe, and after a few moments, remembers that he needs to focus on his commands. The Mudkip lets out a roar and the soil beneath Theo’s feet begins to shift and crack. The Mawile snaps out of his trance, but it is too late to dodge the attack. Magma pushes its way to the surface, and erupts around Theo, causing the earth to shake violently. Theo is thrown about by the sheer force of the earth, and by the time the seismic convulsions begin to settle down, he is already bruised and out of breath.

Lying on his side, the Mawile feels an overwhelming sense of anger at being bested by his opponent like this. So, the Mudkip wants to play? Theo thinks to himself. I’ll show him how to play rough!

Theo jumps to his feet and charges towards Flop with a flurry of punches. His hands glowing with fairy-type energy, the Mawile pummels his target into submission. Flop, mistaking the attack as being playful, softens up just a little. Rather than waste any time though, the Mudkip readies his next attack, collecting water in his mouth and heating it to a near boil. Steam begins to pour from Flop’s open mouth, and the Mudkip spits out a stream of scalding hot water at the Mawile. Theo yelps out in pain as the water burns his body.

Flop, feeling pretty proud of himself, is caught off guard when the Mawile charges at him yet again and lashes out with a barrage of punches. This time, there is no mistaking Theo’s intentions. Even with the painful burn restricting his movement, Theo manages to strike harder with each blow, leaving the Mudkip battered and dizzy. Flop wants to cry, but he puts his pain aside and steels himself, not wanting to disappoint his trainer. He gives his opponent a sly look and then roars to the heavens once again, summoning fiery columns that erupt around the Mawile. The earth tumbles below him, bouncing Theo and smacking against him repeatedly. This continues for several moments until the ground calms down and the referee blows his whistle to end the round. His legs as shaky as the quake itself, Theo stumbles to his feet and turns towards Flop, who is smiling triumphantly now.

I've been letting this battle slide because I've been on vacation, but I should be able to resume reffing by this weekend. Therefore, I'm going to issue this long overdue DQ warning.

DQ warning for Mawile. You have 48 hours to post commands.

Let's start off by using Knock Off to get that Eviolite off, but if he Protects or you can't hit him, use Swords Dance instead. For the next two actions, if he uses a damaging move, I want you to wait until after he moves and use Metal Burst right back at him. If he uses a non-damaging move or if you can't wait to hit him, then just Play Rough with him. If he Protects, just Swords Dance again.

Knock Off/Swords Dance ~ Metal Burst/Play Rough/Swords Dance x2

With pathos gone, I have no choice but to end this battle with a DQ.

Mawile wins and receives $20. I receive $15 for reffing. pathos, unfortunately receives no money. Windows 99 and Phlogiston each receive 2 EXP, while Theo and Mudkip each receive 1 EXP.
