Default Re: Metal Gear Snivy vs. Graceful_Suicune

It was a beautiful day to visit a Pokemon stadium. The sun shone overhead, looking brightly on a pair of young Trainers getting ready to have a friendly match at said stadium. Neither of them would be throwing down the most powerful of Pokemon, but the people at the stadium were there not to watch power, but the skill and excitement present in every Pokemon battle.

One of the Trainers, a boy, sent out a big-eared ball of bright-blue fuzz. The Shinx wagged its star-tipped tail happily, its yellow eyes gleaming with eagerness. The girl analyzed her options for a moment before deciding on a plump, orange Sus scrofa - that is, a pig - with a spring-shaped tail that was tipped by a gleaming scarlet gem. At once the Tepig caught sight of Shinx, and he snorted a puff of smoke from his red nostrils. Shinx responded with a crackle of electricity along his pelt, and the crowd cheered. The battle was on.

Metal Gear Snivy

[Lang] Shinx (M)
Ability: Intimidate
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%

Graceful_Suicune

[Nitre] Tepig (M)
Ability: Blaze
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Status: A tad on the anxious side.
Taunt ~ Magnitude

Round One
The sparks that had been running across Lang's body began to glow more brightly, increasing in number and speed. Nitre took full notice of this, and he decided to put an end to it. In a bid to distract his feline opponent, Nitre began to wave a stubby fore-leg in the air. Once Lang was looking at him - irritation clear in his yellow gaze - Nitre began to stick out his tongue, point, and laugh derisively at Lang. The Shinx's hackles immediately began to bristle with rage, and he lost himself in rage. He puffed out all of his fur and bared his pointy teeth, quite forgetting about charging himself with electricity. Nitre's smug smirk only further irritated Lang.
[Taunt: Nitre, -6% Energy]
[Charge (Failed): Lang, -7% Energy]


Now that Lang was incapacitated by anger, it was time for Nitre to go on the offensive. He was a little bit hesitant to further provoke Lang, but that wasn't going to actually stop him. He lifted a hoof, which glowed with a brown aura, and then slammed his foot right into the sandy arena floor. Immediately a rippling wave of cracked and broken stone rolled across the stadium, sending Lang flying in a shower of pebbles and pain. The Shinx growled and leaped to his feet, his anger dulling the intense pain coming from his bruises and grit-filled scrapes. For a second, Nitre was afraid that Lang would unleash some form of horrible vengeance.
[Magnitude: Lang, -16% HP; Nitre, -26% Energy]

However, Lang had no orders to exact vengeance of any sort. Much to his distaste, Lang found himself being commanded to use another Charge, rather than to attack directly. Lang tried his best, summoning up electricity, but just knowing that he would be unable to fashion it into a Thunder to hit Nitre with made it impossible. Finally he gave it up, resolving rather to shred Nitre in the next round.
[Charge (Failed): Lang, -7% Energy]

Ref Notes
Shinx and Tepig have equal speed, so I rolled 1-100 to see who went first. Rolls were 44 and 50 with Tepig being the evens and Shinx being the odds.
Magnitude's power roll was 98, resulting in a BP of 90.
Magnitude's crit roll was 25; 1-6.25 for crit.
The RNG doesn't like you much, Metal Gear Snivy.
Also, MGS, please post your Shinx's ability next time. It's inconvenient for refs to have to dig through peoples' stats.
This was very fun to write. :D

Grace, your moves, please.
