Default Re: Open Battle: Hitmonfighter vs. Silver Slasher

Pre-battle
Five figures stood in the middle of an icy wasteland, snow whipping around them and the wind howling in their ears. Two of the figures were trainers, members of the Anime-Style Battling League who had come out here to test their strategies against each other, another two were Pokémon. They stood at opposite ends of a roughly drawn battle field. On one side were Silver Slasher and his Tirtouga, a turtle-like creature native to the Unova region. On the other were Hitmonfighter and his Abomasnow, to who was the main reason for the snowstorm which tore at the figures.

The last figure was rather miserable; he was the referee and had been dragged into the job because no one else wanted it – he could see why. With all the different arenas that battles could take part in, he couldn’t see why anyone would want to come out to somewhere freezing cold to battle. He shivered, the cold was already getting at him through his layers so he blew his whistle to symbolise the beginning of the match.

Snowflake was faster so she moved first. She gathered energy in her leafy hands, causing them to glow bright green and stick out against the white background. Turtle watched the two glowing claws with apprehension; she knew that whatever came out of them could hurt her, a lot. When the energy had been stored in the Abomasnow’s claws, a whip was fired from each of them. The twin streamers wrapped themselves around the opponent and started to leach away her health. The Tirtouga screamed as the whips bit at her rocky skin, which offered little resistance to the grassy strings. When Snowflake retracted her tendrils, Turtle looked much worse than she had before.

However, instead of attacking back straight away she instead started to do a strange dance. A dance which had originated in ancient pagan rituals. Rituals that were performed every spring after the crops were planted. A dance which begged Kyogre to send the rain, which allowed the crops to grow to be strong and healthy, so that the people could be fed through the long winter months. Now, however, the dance was used for a much more short-term effect. Turtle looked up at the sky, her eyes were now glowing a bright blue, and the snow storm gradually stopped. Instead, dark storm clouds gathered overhead; then the heavens opened and a heavy downpour fell. The snow on the ground started to turn to a sludgy mush as it was melted by the driving rain. The referee looked up and sighed – this wasn’t his day.

Snowflake was undeterred by this, though the additional damage from the hail would have been useful, and cast out her vines once again. They wrapped around their victim and leeched away her health, which once again made the rock-turtle scream in agony. As the vines were retracted, Turtle struggled to stand. She had taken a beating this turn, something that couldn’t continue, but now it was time to get her own back.

The ancient water-type reached into the water supplies within her body, also soaking in some extra water from the rain that fell around her. As the water began to fill up her throat, she expelled it – aiming at Snowflake’s chest. The gush of water rocketed through the rain filled air and hit Abomasnow head on. It did, well, it did very little in comparison to the two Giga Drains the Abomasnow had performed. The grass-type didn’t even wince as the jet of water struck it, instead, he started to laugh. He knew that he had this battle in the bag – just another round should be all he needed.
