OoC: you forgot to describe the attack- even if your Pokemon is confused, that doesn't mean it won't attack. Unless, obviously, you don't describe.
"Absol, pull yourself together! I trained you better than this!" Redino coached.
Hearing his trainer's words, Absol had a brief flicker of sanity, but unfortunatly it didn't last. The confusion was too strong, he couldn't manage to snap out of it just yet.
"Fine, let's try a different approach. Absol, use Dark Pulse on the cave!"
The Dark Pokemon managed to turn in the cave's direction, but couldn't see the opening in his confused gazing. Glassy eyes peeled open, a twirling sphere of purple energy formed in Absol's mouth, black stripes traveling its surface. He then shot the purple beam, as darkness circles entwined themselves around the attack, hitting near the entrance of the cave- close, but not enough.
From the inside, Grumpig, seeing that no attack was coming, was quickly starting to lose interest- a little more, and it would've been gone.
"This battle isn't going anywhere..." Hyacinth said. "Wouldn't it be better to recall Absol, enter the cave, and then call him out inside? That way, you can battle more easily, and the confusion would go away."
Area effect: It's hailing.
The ground is uneven, and in some places a little slippery. There's a patch of tall grass behind the humans. There's a small entrance to a cave, barely enough for the humans to get through, but not nearly enough for any Pokemon currently in play.
