Default Re: Beartic Tundra vs. Thunderbolt

A Grimer dragged himself through a gutter and the lost trainer had to side step to avoid it and its trail of filth. Thunderbolt stumbled through the dirty alleyway; he was new to this place and had got lost on his way back from the Evolution Dojo, where he had evolved Deathgrip, his Gligar. The bat was gliding above him now, testing his new found strength. He was still a little unsteady in the air and had to keep landing on the windowsills of the houses on each side of the road to avoid plummeting to the muddy road.

Beartic Tundra looked down on the wandering trainer and his pokémon from a window in one of the deserted buildings. This was his part of town and trespassers were not welcome. Unfortunately, most of his pokémon were patrolling the area to keep other gangs at bay, so he was left with Sul, his Ralts. Her helmeted head tilted up at him, as if she was looking at him, and he nodded. The little psychic-type closed her eyes and sent out a message to all of her trainer’s sentinels to tell them to return as soon as possible. Then the two of them descended to confront the trespassers. Thunderbolt and Deathgrip stopped as Beartic stepped out in front of them, followed by his Ralts.

Meanwhile, several gang members were gathering as if drawn in by the possibility of violence. Some were members of Beartic’s gang and had come to support their leader and help him out while he punished this newcomer. The others were members of a rival gang who had broken in to attempt a take-over. They could use the distraction made by this battle to take up strategic positions throughout the area and then attack with the element of surprise. They just had to make sure that the distraction lasted long enough.

Round One

Beartic Tundra

[Sul] Ralts (F)

HP: 100%
Energy: 100%
Condition: A bit intimidated
Moves: Thunderbolt ~ Protect


Thunderbolt

[Deathgrip] Gliscor (M)

HP: 100%
Energy: 100%
Condition: Ready to go
Moves: Toxic ~ Night Slash


Deathgrip began to store poison in his razor-sharp claws while he watched Sul’s movements closely. He had been wanting to test his new strength ever since his evolution and this seemed to be the perfect way in which to do it; this Ralts wasn’t the strongest opponent but she would have to do for the time being while there was nothing better around. He swooped down on the emotion reader, and gripped one of her arms in his venomous claw. She didn’t make a sound, although it had hurt her, but she started to glow with a purple aura, surprising the Gliscor. The aura then seemed to latch onto Deathgrip, who shuddered visibly. He felt poison surge through him and only then realised what was going on – Sul had given him the condition too using her ability. He had underestimated his opponent and this had been the result. He would have to be more careful in the future.

While her opponent tried to lift off and get some distance between the two, Sul began to charge up electrical energy in her body. The two red horns on her head began to glow as sparks jumped between them, and her arms were wreathed in the shining energy. She glanced at the Gliscor, who had just about managed to perch on a ground-floor window, and then fired a huge blast of energy. The glass behind Deathgrip shattered and he had to stumble back due to the sheer force of the attack, but he was basically unharmed. This was because his typing had allowed him to conduct the electricity safely through his body and into the ground without harming him at all. Sul looked at her opponent; that had been disappointing and had tired her out a lot. There was no way she could make a mistake like that again.

Deathgrip seemed to be getting ready for another attack so the Ralts decided to go on the defensive for the time being. She pressed her arms against an imaginary wall in front of her and focused on making it real. A sparkling, green shield began to fade into existence in front of the feeling pokémon, growing and strengthening as his concentration increased. The shield curved to become a dome which protected her on every side. Nothing could penetrate the wall – Sul was safe from whatever the Gliscor tried to do.

His claw was covered in dark energy and he was ready to strike. Deathgrip had managed to climb to a higher point while his opponent built a shield around herself. Without bothering to check first, he leapt from his new platform and slammed against the glittering shield. There was a groan as he peeled himself off of the solid wall of energy; he hadn’t been hurt but running into it hadn’t been a pleasant experience by any stretch of the imagination. With an unbreakable obstacle stopping him from attacking his opponent, he pushed off of it and caught hold of a nearby windowsill from which he could launch his next round of attacks.

However, the round wasn’t quite over yet. As a slight pain in the stomach began to irritate the two pokémon, the gang members decided that it was time to support their chosen battler. A volley of stones filled the air, striking each of the participants. There were cries of pain from each side, and the gang members then subsided back into the shadows of their hiding places to wait for another opportune moment. The two trainers glared at each other – neither was backing down yet.
