“Horn Leech! All in!”Trunks rushes his opponent. His many tiny legs drag him across the arena“Yawn!” You hear Cliff over the sound of the battle and crowd.Swampert yawn’s at the approaching, cackling mad Pokemon.Trunks runs through it, nailing Swampert right dead center with Horn Leech. He saps Swampert dry in a single hit!“Unbelievable!”“The challenger has taken out two of Cliff’s Pokemon without taking any damage so far!”Hey, they’re right! You hope that’s not jinxing it though.The flag goes up, Cliff takes back his Swampert, and he spits. He cracks his neck. He sends out Torterra.Trunks looks drowsy.>Swap Pokemon>Confuse Ray again!

Rolled 3 (1d5)"Trunks! Come back!" You use the Pokeball to recall your Trevenant. He's done well. You want to keep the momentum going and not risk having a sleeping Pokemon at this critical stage."Vlad! Come on out!"Vlad appears in a brilliant flash of light. He comes out twirling in the air, ready to dodge and attack like a champ. The Stealth Rock still takes it's tollHe can't dodge this next attack, either. Torterra uses Roar!Vlad immediately goes back into his Pokeball, only to be replaced by...-----------1 Aria (Meloetta)2 Leviathan (Gyarados)3 Oberon (Garchomp)4 Trunks (Trevenant)5 Destiny (Kingdra)
>>45694612oh god, not roarspam
>>45694612Oh boy Oberon is back and likely annoyed by that stealth rock. Anyone on our end have rapid spin?
>>45694643We have to double team and hope he misses
>>45694612Doubleteam seems like a good move. No Dragon Tail to take care of this temporarily, so might as well be a full-on asshole right back.
>>45694612Oberon appears again. His authoritative aura radiates and fills you with confidence, despite him taking damage from Stealth Rock.He looks over Torterra. The landmass Pokemon looks back.To Oberon, it's land that needs conquering. To Torterra, it's a king that needs to be humbled.His side of the arena is pretty torn up from Earthquake before.

“Fire Fang! Give it the fires of hell!” You feel a bit poetic with Oberon. After the last match, you’re much more in sync.Oberon rushes forward, leaping over small jagged obstacles, dipping his body down and around to avoid any potential ambushes.He bites down hard on Torterra. Since it’s part Ground type, it’s not super effective, but it still hurts just fine.No flinch or burn, though.Torterra uses Rock Polish. He’s now much faster.>Swap!

Torterra uses Swords Dance to pump it’s attack power. With Rock Polish pumping his speed, he’ll be a real problem.“Sand Tomb! Let’s go!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEeQZhJh9NwOberon launches himself into action. With the same precision and power that he’s demonstrated all night, he performs the move beautifully and lands yet another critical hit.Sand Tomb does more than just hurt and stop Torterra from being able to go back. It whips harshly around the Pokemon and nearly lifts it off the ground. Torterra’s unable to take advantage of its recent use of Rock Polish because it was to concentrate so much on not being put off balance. Despite the typing, it still looks like it stings, tooTorterra is strong, though. It holds on and focuses on Oberon. He must be stopped.>Fire Fang! Finish it with Flame and fury!>Swap Pokemon while it’s stuck!>Dragon Rush! Full power, full style!>Slash while trying to stay on the defensive, it could be a trap>Sandstorm, get that Sand Veil working again>Something else

>>45695635Catching this live for the first time I've loved the journey so far Gobble! Really excited for all the things you've got in store!
You feel like you've really connected to Oberon on a deep level during this fight. You might be able to try to Mega evolve if this keep going this way. You can feel that tingly sensation in your bones. Levi is primal rage and fear. Devon is protection and instinct. Raistlin is intellect and analysis. But Oberon is more...authoritative and proper. He believes in an orderly ranking, not because he wants to be on top, but because he thinks everything works best when everyone knows what part of the system they're in. He's happy to follow your lead because he genuinely thinks you lead better.“Come on! Let’s finish it off!”Oberon understands what move you want him to use. With professional pride, he flashes out his wings and charges. There’s a purple dash of light as he connects thread the sand tomb and directly onto Torterra.Torterra bellows out deeply and loses it’s footing.It struggles to it’s feet slowly, trying to fight against the Sand Tomb as well. There’s just too much for it to deal with and it keels over.A ref looks to Cliff, who nods in confirmation. He won’t try pushing it.“Torterra is unable to battle!”The crowd goes wild again. You hear a chant. “Hail to the king! Hail to the king!”Oberon gestures dramatically. He spreads his wings and roars. Then he flips his wings back in with a little flair. Nothing overly showy, just confident and bold.“What a not for the Pokemon league.”“Three and 0 on the side of the challenger. Kat is on fire! Oberon has earned himself a place on the permanent replay reel.”“That’s right, Chip. But Cliff doesn't seem too worried. He’s reaching for his next Pokeball. Hold on, we’re going to his mic feed now.”“Looks like you've forced me into a corner, Kat and Oberon. You might be sturdy, but do you have the patience to be able to handle the stress from this?” He tosses up his Pokeball. “Nincada! Go!”[That’s all for tonight. I should be running tomorrow]
>>45695873[Thanks! Glad to have you!]
>>45695910Thanks for running GobbleReally got my blood flowing in this bout
>>45695910Well, it's been fun.Guess I'll go read the archive and tune in the next time I'm on and this quest is going.
>>45695910Oh god his secret weapon. Thanks for running gobble, want us to keep the thread bumped till tomorrow?
>>45695910Thanks for running!
>>45695932so what is Violets current reaction to this battle?
>>45695910First time back on 4chan in a while. Seems I picked the right day to return.Damn good run, Gobble.
>>45695910Ha, he thinks it's possible to out-nuisance Kat? We'll show him what it means to irritate.
>>45695932Thanks for running, Gobble.
I love that we got the crowd to chant "Hail to the King". Oberon is such a badass.
>>45695942Thanks! for the offer, but it's easier for archiving purposes and board etiquette to let this one die.>>45695938>>45695940>>45695953>>45695976Thanks for coming!>>45695958She likes Cliff since he is a pretty active volunteer for Pokemon. But he also wastes a lot of time on human efforts too. He just does volunteer work for people and Pokemon without preference. She thinks he's honest, but only because he's deluded. He's an optimist who sees the best in everyone.But she sees Cliff as on about the same tier as she sees Clair in terms of battling ability. Someone she can easily trounce, but she'd actually have to pay attention to the fight or risk them landing one tricky move on her that'd keep it from being flawless.She's loving watching this battle. She's certain now that she hasn't just been fooling herself. You're likely to be an actual battle for her if this keeps up.>>45695986Careful. It's tiny and hard to hit or sometimes even see, but it packs a punch.
>>45695910>but do you have the patience to be able to handle the stress from this?So... Is the secret to try to outlast it? Like don't even bother attacking until it runs out of steam?
Honestly Raistlen is probably going to be our best bet with that Nincada ironically enough.If Raistlen can get it in a psychic bind then it's speed doesn't matter. Add in a fire typing Hidden power and that might be enough to provide a one hit KO.
>>45696256I keep forgetting, can we set Rain?
>>45696259We switched him out for Oberon though.
>>45696303Ah, right. Forgot about that. Nevermind then. We'll just have to work with what he have and send out Vlad.
So I think I remember Cliff having a mega evolution. Which could it be?
Calling it now, nincada is a baton passer. It fits perfectly with being difficult to hit.
Might just wanna have aria use perish song, or sing. No way it could stop her and we wont miss
>>45697031It may seem a little overkill using a Legendary like that, but it'd be a valid strategy. You can't exactly dodge sound.
