Re: Individual RP: Luke39
OOC: The first, most very basic rule of RPing is: don't control what you're not allowed to control. You, as the Trainer, are not allowed to determine whether an attack hits or how the wild Pokemon reacts under any circumstances. When I said describe your attacks that didn't include whether they work or not, that's my job to determine. Same goes for your strategies, you can make an indication that your Pokemon is about to make a move but you can't say what happens in regards to the Pokemon you're battling. Don't do it again.
IC: Luke chose the moment to make a bold move, having Poliwhirl sidestep Azurill's attack at the last moment. Unfortunately, he failed to take one thing into account: Poliwhirl had greater speed, but with mastery of its tail an Azurill was practically guaranteed to be more agile. Before Poliwhirl even had a chance to move the little blue ball spun around, striking her tail into the frog's stomach. Poliwhirl stumbled back, surprised by the attack, but quickly regained his facets and released a massive torrent of water. Unfortunately he was still unbalanced, and the force sent him falling on his back, causing the Hydro Pump to go wildshot into the air.
Azurill bounced back like a little ball, seeming somewhat more sure of herself. Poliwhirl didn't seem like quite a threat anymore, something to not be afraid of. She was gaining confidence, something that could either be good or bad for Luke. The Trainer, meanwhile, took the opportunity to make a bold move and grab a Park Ball from his belt, tossing it at Azurill. It flew through the air, but only met a well timed tail swing. The force of the tail against the ball sent it sailing out over the water. Sokka cupped a hand over his eyes and watched it fly in the manner of a baseball, eventually landing a distance away.
"Tough break there Luke," he called. "Might want to damage it a bit more first!"
