Default Re: Latio-Nytro VS Micro

Calm waters filled the massive arena, lapping gently against its edges and the floating platforms that were scattered around it. The weather was good today, with warm sunshine and a light breeze, so a good crowd had come out to fill the stands. All their attention was fixed on the trainers who stood in twin pedestals near the centre of the arena.

The first was a man who was now known as Micro. He had recently re-entered the league after a long absence, during which he had continued to inhabit the top position in the ASB’s league table, despite not battling. No doubt he would be looking to reclaim his place in the standings now that he was back. In his hand he held a poké ball, which he tossed onto a nearby platform. It split, allowing a burst of energy to spill out, forming a small, grey creature which levitated above the water, her yellow eyes locked on the second trainer, who was about to introduce her to her opponent.

The trainer, Latio-Nytro, seemed a bit confused, it was quite clear that the arena would favour water-types - if the other trainer wasn’t going to make use of that, then more fool him. He threw his poké ball straight into the water, where it released a small blue reptile with a long snout and very sharp teeth. He dived under the water for a bit before resurfacing and turning to face his enemy. A grin spread across his face - he was going to have fun here.

Buried Alive, the Misdreavus, was a little unnerved by the sunlight and by her opponent’s optimism. She needed a way to make the playing field a bit more even - fortunately, she had a plan. Electricity was not a particularly familiar form of energy for her to be using, but it suited the circumstances perfectly. A web of crackling lightning formed below her fluttering appendages and she drifted over Captain Crunch, dropping it on him as she passed. The net closed around him, electricity passing through his wet skin and into his nervous system. His muscles suddenly seized up as the nerves that told them what to do were scrambled - this wasn’t good for him.

In fact, the paralysis was so bad that all he could do was lay still in the water, just about managing to float. He was basically a sitting duck until his muscles would cooperate again; in the meantime his opponent was free to do as she pleased.

The spectre had decided that disabling the Totodile’s body was not enough: she would attack his mind as well. Floating down to him so that her red-and-yellow eyes were fixed on his, she began to pour ghostly energy out of them. Captain Crunch had no choice but to watch, as he felt his ability to think properly drain away. Before long, he wasn’t sure where he was or what was happening, only that he was panicking.

This panic was joined with a relaxation in the grip of the paralysis, and so the crocodile did the first thing that leapt into his mind: lash out. Gathering water around his tail, he leapt out of the water and on to a nearby platform and then jumped again, swinging his tail down on Buried Alive. The Misdreavus hadn’t expected him to be able to move, let alone attack her, and was caught completely off guard. Captain Crunch landed back in the water with a splash, still confused. He needed to figure out what was going on and fast.

Forgive me if there is a mistake in the damage value for this, but I had to work it out using the formula. Also, STAB is 1.2 in the ASB, and giving it a value of 2 seems to make things a little overpowered.
