Default Re: Challenger [5TailedDemonLizard] vs. Shocking! Gym Leader [Dino]

It was quiet inside the cube that hosted the battles for the Shocking! Gym. The Gym Leader, Dino, and his latest challenger, 5TailedDemonLizard, watched each other cautiously from opposite ends of the arena, sizing each other up before they began the battle. Then, Dino took a poke ball from his belt and threw it out, releasing a small purple spider. Seeing this, his opponent sent her own pokemon out, this one being a large, dinosaur-like creature with wings that were made of leaves on its back. The two pokemon faced each other, one growling and the other chittering, both confident in their abilities - only time could tell which had the right to be.

Round One

Aranea took the first move, trying to close the gap between her speed and that of her opponent. She leapt towards the grass-type, but, instead of attacking, tore straight past him. The spider scuttled all around the battlefield, literally running rings around Hayashi, who only watched her, cautiously, hoping this was some kind of trick and that she was just trying to raise her speed to match his. The Ariados finally slowed down and stopped, panting just a little bit.

Hayashi grinned a wicked grin - he wasn’t going to let her get the upper hand quite that easily. Leaping into the air, he began to beat his wings with powerful strokes, displacing a huge volume of air with each stroke. The air reflected off of the walls of the box, making turbulent air currents all over the place. The Tropius could use these to his advantage, for a while at least.

Hayashi now rose up as high as he could within the enclosed box, knocking his head on the ceiling slightly, before shifting into a nearby current to get some extra speed as he dived downwards at Aranea. The spider tried to scuttle out of the way, but a subtle manipulation of his wings allowed Hayashi to catch up to her and body slam her, roaring as he did so. The Tropius was still grinning as he pulled himself off the spider and moved back into the air - there was no doubt that he was having a better round than his opponent.

Aranea was unperturbed, however. As soon as the dinosaur had heaved himself off of her, she broke out at a run, trying to get as far away from him as she could. As she ran, she could feel her muscles stretch and strengthen and she got used to moving at a high speed, allowing her to make decisions more quickly, so that she could dodge more efficiently if the situation called for it. Her increased speed may not have been useful for the moment, but she knew that it would become very handy later on.
