Dudechu grinned broadly, knowing that his plan was about to finally pay off. Resisting the urge to scratch at his broken skin, he drove his tail into the platform on which he was standing and began to channel energy into it and the water below it. As this energy was poured into the water, it began to shift, stirring up the sand at the bottom pool.

Sandslash looked around, terrified, as the water got choppier. In desperation, he stuck one of his claws into his own platform to stop himself being thrown clean off. Then, as he looked up, he could see Raichu on top of a giant wave, surfing it with his platform. With a growl, the desert rat poured energy into his remaining claw and swiped it at the looming electric-type, sending a few dozen stars spiralling up towards him. Dudechu ignored them, but when they swerved, avoiding the wave and coming straight towards him, he realised that his planned defence against them was not as effective as he had thought and braced himself for the impact. The stars thudded into him, drawing blood from his damaged skin, but his tail anchored him in place and he remained on his platform.

Sandslash cursed when he saw that Dudechu was still riding the wave, and then screamed as he realised that it was coming down. The wall of water fell on him, crushing him momentarily under its weight. Then it was gone, and he was lying on his pedestal, gasping frantically for air. Luckily, his claw embedded in the pedestal had saved him from being dragged off and drowned, so that was something to be grateful for. Still, he didn’t want to go through that again.

But his opponent hadn’t finished yet. The water was still as turbulent as before, and Dudechu was building up another wave for his final strike. Sandslash dragged himself to his feet, staring up at the wave in front of him. His free claw glowed bright white and he slashed at the air desperately, creating a trail of stars each time. These spun up the wave, reaching their target in a matter of seconds. Dudechu didn’t have time to react before they were surrounding him, slashing him from every direction. He drew his tail from the pedestal to try and bat them away, and then realised his mistake. The stars pushed at him, making him uneasy, which was fatal on an unsteady pedestal, and he fell into the raging waters below before he had the chance to correct his mistake.

Sandslash had a moment to celebrate this, but it was a short-lived moment. Although the water was calming without the influence of Raichu’s energy, the wave that had been surging towards him had too much momentum to stop. It crashed down on the ground-type, pinning him to his platform until the sudden torrent was over. After this, he gradually picked himself up, knowing that the battle was done now – it was just a question of who had won.

Dudechu grabbed hold of a nearby platform and pulled himself up. Both pokémon were bloodied and bruised and panting for breath after an intense final round. Everyone, myself included, waited with baited breath as the results were processed – it still seemed that it could go either way. Then, the screen flashed white: the winner was decided. After a momentary pause, a picture of Saraibre Ryu and another of Dudechu filled the screen, ending the battle’s proceedings. The two trainers met at the edge of the pool, returned their pokémon and shook hands. They had come here knowing that only one could proceed to the final, and now it was decided who. Sadly, Velocity would be going home, but she would go taking a handful of points to her team, which was, in the end, what mattered.
