Jarfly – Nincada (♂)
Health: 27%
Energy: 77%
Ability: Compound Eyes
Type: Bug / Ground
Condition: Shaken and wary.
Status: Attack +2.
Actions: Frustration ~ X-Scissor ~ X-Scissor

Pokey – Diglett (♂) @ Eviolite
Health: 43%
Energy: 61%
Ability: Arena Trap
Type: Ground
Condition: Okay, but not feeling perfect.
Status: Normal.
Actions: Protect / Hone Claws / Uproar x3​

Jarfly was frantically trying to reorient himself when Pokey let out another attack – except this time, it was one of sound. The Diglett burst into a painfully loud uproar, scaring the living daylights out of Jarfly and simultaneously forcing the Nincada to cringe harshly. But, with effort, the Nincada shook his head, and as the sound began to die down he forced himself forward, channeling his pent-up stress into a vicious attack on Pokey, one equally potent to the X-Scissors of the last round.

Realizing this, Jarfly prepared to launch another X-Scissor, but he was rudely interrupted by another sudden screech from Pokey. The Uproar once again caught him off guard, especially due to the pause between actions. But this time he shook himself off more quickly, and with an angered cry, slashed at his opponent. Again, it was a potent attack, and as it struck Pokey yelped, ending his uproar abruptly, only to start it again a few seconds later. And though Jarfly once again cringed at the noise, he continued his attack unfazed this time, perhaps fueled by adrenaline, and by the end of the round Pokey had what seemed like a thousand little cuts from the repeated X-Scissor attacks.

Pokey – Diglett (♂) @ Eviolite
Health: 10%
Energy: 46%
Ability: Arena Trap
Type: Ground
Condition: Wondering how Jarfly is still standing
Status: Normal.
Actions: Uproar ~ Uproar ~ Uproar​

Referee Notes
~Frustration had 80 power.
~Uproar’s damage output was slightly reduced (to 80 bp), as Pokey had to separate them and thus couldn’t go fully out of control, as is the spirit of the move.
~Zexion commands first.

Short time, quick commands. Sorry Jarfly, I'm not the best. Jump in and hopefully end this with a Quick Attack/X-Scissor combo. If you can't nail that off because Pokey is unhittable, don't do anything, just stay still and use the combo the next time around.

Quick Attack + X-Scissor/Nothing ~ Quick Attack + X-Scissor/X-Scissor

Use Sucker Punch, and that ought to finish him off.

If for whatever reason you can't pull off Sucker Punch before Quick Attack (though you should, since they're the same priority and you're faster), instead Endure the combo, then Protect against the straggling X-Scissor left at the end of his commands, and finally take him down with Aerial Ace.

Status: Normal.
Actions: Sucker Punch / Endure ~ victory / Protect ~ dance party / Aerial Ace​

This was the pivotal round, both battlers knew. Jarfly, in particular, was determined to win – he knew it was possible, he’d gotten this far, but he’d have to be fast. The Nincada sprang into action, moving as fast as he could and practically gliding across the sandy battlefield, but Pokey was unfortunately thinking exactly the same way. The Diglett popped down below the ground faster than Jarfly could register, and came out below the Nincada with just enough force to knock the bug pokémon out. And with that, the sandstorm began to die down as the nature detector detected fewer pokémon in the environment. The trainers nodded at each other and returned their respective pokémon to their poké balls. It was time for the next phase of the battle.

Whelp, sorry about that Jarfly. You win some, you lose some.

From the looks of things, the next up will be A Late Hallmark Card!

Okay, here we go, Lululemon!

If that Luvdisc tries to inflict you with a status, try and see if you can Withdraw fast enough to avoid it. (Hopefully this should at least work for confusion/attraction, if not other statuses.) Also Withdraw if he's protecting or otherwise unhittable or unreachable.

If you see a Double-Edge or Take Down incoming, take it and then compound the recoil woes with Counter.

Otherwise, let's set up a Reflect and then use a couple of Power-Up Punches.

Withdraw/Counter/Reflect ~ Withdraw/Counter/Power-Up Punch x2

Alright ALHC, time to shine. Sure little Lululemon is going to go for a Withdraw, but we need to open this Round with a Toxic, even if Hallmark cards are meant to be kind and corny. Follow that up with a Secret Power, which is gonna be fun to use, cause Hallmark cards are secrets! Let's end with a Hydro Pump to make sure it's a fun time.

Toxic ~ Secret Power ~ Hydro Pump

The field changed to one completely made of water, the ground seeming to melt away as sprinklers from the roof began to simulate rain and pipes on the arena’s edges started to spew out water at an unimaginable rate. As soon as it was sufficiently full, the two trainers sent out their next pokémon. On one side, a Luvdisc – a happy-looking pokémon needing no more explanation. And on the other side, a Squirtle, who dived happily into the water before swimming to the surface and splashing around some more. With no further ado, the referee began the next round.

A Late Hallmark Card, aided by being an actual fish rather than just a turtle, and therefore being able to swim quite fast, swam in a small circle as if to look welcoming and happy, and then proceeded to gurgle up a small amount of poison from his belly. Lululemon, looking on, became a little bit confused, until she saw the little blob of purple stuff – and, of course, she knew exactly what it was, and, trusting her shell to protect her from it, she withdrew every single one of her limbs, plus her head. A Late Hallmark Card, not to be deterred, aimed for the head opening, although even if his Toxic hit the shell, it would likely as not sink in anyway. But A Late Hallmark Card was a bit careless, or perhaps overconfident, and her Toxic glob floated right past Lululemon’s shell as the Squirtle emerged, more confident in her defensive abilities.

It was only a minor setback, though, nothing A Late Hallmark Card couldn’t fix. Switching strategies, he expended a little bit of his energy to create a small white orb in front of his mouth – an orb which quickly grew in size as it seemed to absorb the essence of the water around the battlers, turning a deep blue color. As Lululemon got the mind to advance upon her opponent, A Late Hallmark Card fired the orb as a thick beam, which slammed into Lululemon’s hand and swirled the Squirtle around. As soon as Lululemon recovered her orientation, though, she charged her injured fist with power and lightly bopped A Late Hallmark Card on the top tail fin, the latent power in her attack overshadowing the pain in her fist.

Lululemon followed that up with a second punch, this time to the middle of her opponent’s back, and afterwards she felt even stronger, as if she’d never been hit by the Secret Power in the first place. A Late Hallmark Card knew how his opponent felt. He resented that. And so, giving an angry chirp and swimming a brief distance away, he flipped himself around and, after a deep breath, fired a huge column of water at his opponent that was almost as thick as his body was tall. Thoroughly surprised by the magnitude of the attack, Lululemon was thrown backwards by the attack, floating slowly to a stop against the edge of the arena. As the referee called the end of the round, she glared at her opponent, thinking that maybe A Late Hallmark Card was worse than No Card At All.

I've ignored this for too long, and I'm fairly sure Zexion's Absence Sheet post expired almost a month ago, so DQ Warning for Zexion.
