Eager, Chloe thought to herself as Douken immediately ordered his assault. A Dewgong and Toxicroak, both instantly gunning for her Solrock.

"Protect"

Solrock, despite its rock-typing, had few defensive options and only middling natural defenses. Gym leaders had to be as well rounded as possible, meaning covering areas of weakness. Fighting was the most problematic of types, given that she had very few Pokemon to cover...except for Solrock. With a Water/Ice type and a Poison/Fighting type, it meant that Solrock's Rock and Psychic would give it excellent coverage, which was what Douken had already figured out.

Protect, while not the most reliable move in an on-going defense, had priority, and managed to cancel out both the Aqua Jet and Faint Attack as they impacted in their heavy 1-2. Using it again on the next turn would leave Solrock open to punishment.

In the mean time, Victreebel remained perfectly open, and she had the option to punish the trainer for that, or use the time to set up.

"Sunny Day!"

From his giant mouth, Victreebel trilled out his battle cry, shooting a ball of light into the air. The swirling mass of energy blasted outwards, covering the ceiling of the gym, sending down an intense sunlight to cover the field.

This would weaken the Dewgong's water attacks, but it would also serve to double Victreebel's speed. She'd known this combo for awhile, but her last match with Jill Laurent had reminded her of its devasating potential. Meanwhile, Solrock had moves such as Solarbeam and Flamethrower at its disposal, making those moves much more viable in the next few rounds.

She glanced over at her floating Solrock, a Pokemon she'd had train over with Vega briefly. She also had the option of utilizing an array of tricky Psychic moves as well. With Sunny Day in effect, playing a mix-up game with her two Pokemon would be easily accomplished, keeping Douken on his toes.

A grin couldn't help but cross his face ashe let a whisper of, “Gotcha,” slip out. Her set up left her wide open to one of Dewgong's nasty little tricks. He just had to decide in that split second which one should be placed on.

"Maya, Encore on Solrock!" was his choice, because thanks to the speed boost, the plant could easy sneak out another trick to get encouraged to use. Not only that, but it also sealed away Solrock into defensive play, wasting energy on a move that has potential to fail on constant uses. So, in response to the command, Maya curled her body upwards, clapping her fins and encouraging the opposing Solrock, as if asking for it to do it again with praise.

"Koldo, Taunt!" A tricky move to force someone to get aggressive, but with the sun out and Grass-types having a tricky array of powders and growing ability, turning it aggressive was a good way to keep some control over the opponent along with guaranteeing what he could do with an aggressor. With that in mind, Koldo held up his hands, showing off the claws like a human would with his middle finger and croaked an array of insults and curse words in hopes of ticking off the Victreebell.

The first turn's aggression failed, but it seemed like the second turn's set up seemed like a good way to lock the gym leader's moves. So as long as the effects of Encore lasted, he only had one threat.

Chloe's eyes widened as she heard the commands, and quickly spat out one of her own:

"Growth!"

Luckily, due to Victreebel's newfound speed, the massive flytrap Pokemon managed to pull of a super boost to his Attack and Special Attack. The Toxicroak's words reached his ears though, and any further non-damaging attacks were now laid low for a spell.

Solrock, on the other hand, had not been so lucky. The encore landed effortlessly, forcing him to put up its protect barrier once more, despite the fact that nothing was attacking it. Now, with the subsequent few Protects, the chances of Solrock actually pulling it off plummeted. He had something of a 25% chance of pulling it off the next time, and then 12%, and then 6%.

If Douken followed up with Disable, like Tag before him, there was the potential of rage-quitting the match.

Nevertheless, even with Solrock currently out of play for the moment, Victreebel had turned himself into a speedy, powerful behemoth on the field. Unless Douken pulled something incredible, she was going to punish him on the next turn.

The sun continued to shine brightly on the field.

A quick "che" escaped his mouth, watching the sun-boosted Growth double up the Victreebell's attacks. If it wasn’t for the speed boost, then Douken could possibly lay in another Encore to lay in a strange lock that would only develop into a Struggle. However, the speed boost would make sure the Grass type could get in a move beforehand and only lock an offensive attack. If he has to fight speed, he will fight speed.

“Koldo, Sucker Punch! Maya, Icy Wind!” Taunting a locked Solrock could of make the Rock-type Struggle, but then that would only mean two offensive contenders. No, his main threat was the Victreebell and he had to take care of it fast.

Luckily, thanks to taunt, the Flycatcher Pokemon was forced to attack, which guaranteed the success of Sucker Punch and its priority speed, making good for getting in close and striking the plant before it could do anything. Even if his claw pulsed, Poison Touch still had no ability on another Poison type as it was more of a comfort of them.

Getting in close had another reason and that was to shield the slower Dewgong. Koldo willing to take the next blow, he made himself ready to jump out of the way of the oncoming ice attack which blew from the Sea Lion’s mouth, encasing a small layer of ice on the targets to slow them down. Even if the sun burdened the water, it only made the ice look shinier.

Taunt and Sucker Punch. Encore. Cheap Labour, cheap tricks, Chloe found herself saying to herself. Douken rightfully focused on Victreebel, as the triple-double boost was obviously quite threatening. But he made a mistake in completely discounting the Solrock. While the floating Sun-Pokemon couldn't quite be as effective as Chloe wanted for a few more turns, it still was on the field.

Of course, since Douken had called Sucker Punch in advance, Chloe was hesitant to attack, but she couldn't rightfully waste a turn either.

Sucker Punch slammed into the Victreebel, but the creature stood firm, roaring through his maw at the offending Toxicroak. Solrock appeared in between the two, just before the Poison Frog cleared the path of the Icy Wind. Solrock's protect went up, but shattered immediately under the Icy Wind gust, using its body as a shield to keep the Victreebel from receiving damage or the speed detriment.

"Victreebel, Leaf Blade on Dewgong."

Leaf Blade had a high chance to critical hit, and with Victreebel's attack effectively doubled with Growth and its speed boosted. He easily outsped the taunting Toxicroak, and used this agility to maneuver past the frog. The long vine tail-foot appendage lashed out, the leaf extending into a wicked looking blade glowing with grass-type energy, rocketing past Toxicroak in an attempt to slash at the Sea Lion.

With Solrock breaking the pair up, it was enough for the Victreebell to hop around the frog and get to Maya, landing a powerful hit. "Maya, you alright?" he asked, the Dewgong nodding in response. Even if the Solrock could only use Protect at a miserable rate, it could still act as a wall, making sure it was still in the game. Still, he had to get a good turn around, and the Leaf Blade brought the Victreebell close.

"Maya, Icicle Spear. Koldo, Faint Attack!" Keeping in mind the close quarters, he decided to use Maya's unique skill she got from her grandfather, firing an array of icicles like a machine gun from a white globe in her mouth. To keep the Solrock busy from getting between again, the toxic frog grabbed one of the stone pinnacles to keep it still as it jabbed another claw into the stony back, the chance of poison existing in his blows on the Solrock.

This may not be like my fights on the Disciples or Deception, but it does well on what they are for: testing the limits of a trainer's strategy and endurance. However, the blood flowing to his head to his head started making him dizzy, taking a step back to get his balance. A possible sign of repercussion from his near-death experience he recovered from. Cmon, this is nothing to you. Don't let as headache interrupt your thinking. To help ease the pain, he turned his bag over as he eyed the battle and pulled out a Sitris berry. However, instead of tossing it onto the field as an aid to his Pokemon, he took a bite from it himself. Hopefully, this would help the dizziness and his thinking.

Chloe leaned forward as Douken took a step back to eat a berry. His nonchalance towards the battle was admirable; many trainers easily lost their cool against the gym leaders. She'd witnessed it countless times over her tenure, and she was actually quite impressed that Douken seemed to have taken everything in stride.

Solrock's Protect flared up once more, but shattered instantly as Koldo's Faint Attack grabbed it from behind. The floating sun immediately dropped to the ground, digging his spikes into the floor and rolling away like a wheel, loosening the grip from Toxicroak. Chloe watched her Pokemon closely; it looked like encore had ended, and Solrock was ready to fight once again.

In the mean time, Victreebel moved effortlessly with his strange, unreadable patterns, easily avoiding most of the Icicle Spear attack from Maya. A stray few managed to get in, but thankfully not the full brunt of the attack. Despite the super effective status of both attacks (Icicle Spear also gaining STAB), Chloe's team had not suffered heavy damage.

Solrock was still out for this turn, seeing as it had used Protect. In terms of move stamina, he probably didn't have enough energy to summon Protect too much more in the battle.

Victreebel, on the other hand, still had support from the Sun, and geared up to keep Maya pinned down.

"Leaf Storm."

Arguably one of the most powerful Grass-Type Moves, Leaf Storm, combined with Victreebel's doubled special attack, would be a devastating blow. On top of it being absurdly powerful, it had a wide array, making dodging incredibly difficult. The Dewgong, not the most agile opponent, would have difficult evading. The move would lower Victreebel's Special attack, but that would simply negate the boost.

Not good! Even with priority, the best Koldo could of gotten would be the plant’s back. “Maya!” Not having the best movement speed on land was the issue with dodging, which in turn had her body fall over. “Maya, return,” he called out, accepting the first fall. “You did good, girl. Rest up.”

Crunching into the Sitris Berry once more, he contemplated on who to use. He could take to his Ghost, who not only had good coverage, but could also fight against the speed. However, he really did want to test out his newest addition to his team. “I will have to sometime soon anyways,” he said, pulling off the Dream ball from his belt: a Pokeball he had never seen in any shop.

“Alright Canaan, this is your début!” Tossing the Pokeball out, he revealed out his Dragonair, letting her cry echo through the greenhouse arena. Though strong, he wasn’t sure how well she contended in battle besides when he got her, so he had to take a roll with the dice here. Still, time to get aggressive.

“Koldo, Mud Bomb! Maya, Twister!” With a long cry, the winds around the arena began to swirl, surrounding the arena as it dealt dragon to both opposing enemies. However, on the opposite side, the Poison frog began to form a collection of mud balls in its mouth before charging in and firing right into the plant’s face. Hopefully, the mud in its eyes would give it more trouble to aim the blows right. However, another concern was the Solrock was recovering from the Encore, which meant the Psychic type could fight back now

The sun should be fading away in a moment’s time. Just got to hold out! ran though his mind until he remembered something: Chloe’s attention was only on Maya. This meant he still had two strong Pokemon while her two were worn out some. While she still had her third, he still had a good seat.

Twister from Douken's newest Pokemon spelled a level of trouble for Chloe. Dragonair resisted grass, meaning that Solrock was currently her primary means of dealing damage. The Sun was only in for so much longer, but the threat of Encore had disappeared, meaning the Mud Bomb wouldn't be much of a problem if she wanted to use Sunny Day again.

But, perhaps it would be a wasted move; Victreebel had taken some damage, and still had a massive attack advantage. She was more worried about getting some utilization out of her other partner, Solrock. With the Sun about to go, and Victreebel still under taunt from Koldo, she oped to go for all out offense.

"Solrock, Victreebel! Psychic and Leaf Storm on Toxicroak!"

She should have started with Psychic, rather than going for the set up. A wonderfully accurate, powerful Psychic move with a bonus due to Solrock's typing and Toxicroak's quadruple weakness to it. On the other hand, Toxicroak resisted the Grass Type Leaf Storm, and even after the Special Attack Drop from Leaf Storm, Victreebel had only returned to normal power.

Toxicroak had been a thorn in her side since the beginning of the match, able to mix and match statuses with raw power, and she needed it out of the way to focus on the new threat of Canaan. With any luck, she'd reduce this match to a 3 on 1. Even with Victreebel's accuracy lowered, Leaf Storm was still a wide move. Though, Toxicroak was more than likely a far more agile opponent than the marine Dewgong.

"Koldo, dodge it!" It was true that the frog was swifter, which meant with the mud altering the aim for a direct hit to an angle, he was able to jump out of the attack's wide spread. However, he was caught by the Psychic, the blue aura holding him and slamming the Poison Frog to the floor. However, even though he stumbled getting up, he was still on his feet.

"Sorry, but I doubt my stubborn fighter will fall so easily," Douken's couldn't help but comment before setting up his next actions. "Faint Attack! Dragonbreath!" he could of taken the more powerful approach of Sucker Punch by hiding its words, but there was still a chance that she would do something non-offensive to make the move fail. So, the better option would be to guarantee a hit on the slowed-down Solrock again, aiming to take it out, even if it was a quick polish with poison from Poison Touch.. However, with Canaan, her aim was the stubborn Victreebel. Last time she used it, it was powered by two Helping Hands, so this time, the ball of energy was still quite a reasonable size. However, it did not mean it lacked the devastating power it held as she fired her attack.

Once again, the Toxicroak sank his claws into Solrock's rocky hide. Chloe watched as her Psychic Sun Rock made a horrific screeching noise, once again receiving the super effective attack. Before it had a chance to launch another quadruply effective Psychic attack, it slammed into the ground, having taken its fair brunt of damage. It started to rise, but a purple hue washed over its body, indicating the success of Koldo's Poison-Touch. How the creature had been poisoned without possessing flesh was beyond Chloe, but her dogged battler sank back down to the ground.

Chloe recalled her Solrock with a sigh as the referee's flag shot up. Koldo was a stubborn fighter indeed, not even having shown the slightest hint of being slowed down by what she had figured to be an impressive hit from Psychic. Nevertheless, she had her most powerful fighter in reserve, so she didn't feel particularly harried at the moment.

As the Dragonbreath lanced out, Chloe watched as her still speedy Victreebel moved to dodge. Still a rather cumbersome creature, the Victreebel took the glancing blow, falling over to his side before struggling to get back up. Peering closely, she saw no signs of paralysis, and it appeared that Victreebel had a few more moves in him yet.

"Serperior." She waved offhandedly to the field, not even glancing down to her side as the giant grass serpent slithered forward onto the field, eying Koldo arrogantly. She knew which target he wanted, and she would give it to him. The Sun had faded from the field, meaning that Growth would not have its double effect, but she had another means of assault. "Leaf Storm."

Not hindered by accuracy loss like his partner Victreebel, Leaf Storm wrecked havoc across the serene battlefield towards Koldo. Also unlike Victreebel, who had appeared to have lost power from using the attack, the Serperior only seemed to be growing stronger from the usually draining attack.

Meanwhile, the Taunt appeared to have faded from Victreebel. With Koldo hopefully occupied, he'd be free to face the Dragonair, Canaan. Since Dragonair typically possessed Shed Skin, it seemed a poor idea to inflict Status, as she would shrug it off. (Canaan's was Marvel Scale, but Chloe didn't know that.)

"Victreebel, Wring Out!"

With Victreebel's physical attack still boosted from Growth, with Dragonair at full health meant a devastatingly powerful Wring Out Attack aimed at Douken's Dragon Pokemon. She had no reason not to go all out, especially given the skill Douken had displayed.

The Victreebel's vine screeched through the air at the majestic dragon Pokemon.

Each was down one and the Psychic Type was out. Normally, taking out a major threat like that would have one sigh in relief, but this was a gym battle, and every single member they possess is deemed a threat. The biggest threat is obviously the unknown, which is typically hard for one who has seen a variety of Pokemon in his life living with breeders. However, once again he was met up with a new, unfamiliar opponent: Serperior.

“They got the same eyes,” Douken couldn’t help but notice and comment, looking between the new entry and his Koldo. Having Koldo since he hatched he knew those eyes too well. They demanded a challenge, and anything less was disappointing. The light from the sun faded down to the “natural” light that the underground city held, but this only meant delayed Solar Beams and the weak Victreebel back at normal speed.

With the attacks now declared, Douken responded, “Guard it!”

Holding his arms in front of his face, the toxic frog knew he was unable to get into an evadable window, taking the brunt of the force. It was grass, so he was able to resist the damage, but adding in the psychic, he was breathing heavily, having trouble standing up. However, unlike the Victreebell, the Serperior did not seem to suffer from the same fatigue… no, it was more like the attack added in Growth… Don’t tell me its Contrary, he thought, taking the last bite from the Sitris berry before pulling out another one.

With the Victreebell, it latched onto the full health opponent and began to tighten his grip, using what energy it had left to even out the odds to her favor when it came to one on one, as both initial fighters were severely worn out, which could lead to the battle ending serpent against serpent.

“Koldo, Swagger! Canaan, Slam!” Though still fatigued, the frog still could not help but taunt the Serperior, this time not to force him to always attack, but for him to lose his mind through rage. Now, normally this move had the consequence of boosting attack in return for the confusion, but thanks to Contrary, it actually weakened the attack, giving a double bonus. However, with Canaan having the plant latched in her body, the best way to get it off would e to throw the attached segment into the ground below.

The Poison Frog did not go down. Now, on top of it, this Douken had figured out its special ability from just one move. She raised her eye skeptically, wondering how he knew about such an obscure ability. On top of that, he immediately knew a counter.

On the other hand, Victreebel was in process of being slammed into the ground.

"Stun Spore."

As the Victreebel fell towards the ground, he released a green cloud of paralyzing spores. It didn't stop the attack, and the carnivorous plant slammed into the ground from Dragonair's powerful attack. Once the dust cleared, Victreebel lay defeated on the ground. Chloe recalled her Pokemon, not showing any signs of worry. She still had her strongest Pokemon undamaged on the field. If anything, the Dragonair more than likely had Shed Skin, meaning the paralysis would be temporary at best if it succeeded at point blank range.

But Douken wasn't the only person was crazy-prepared. Knowing that the day would come when trainers knew her Pokemon's ability (by gossip or Channel 4 or what have you), she too had prepared in advance.

As Serperior's eyes glazed over, a vine pulled up from around his neck, popping a berry into his mouth. The Lum Berry immediately removed the confusion, even if it didn't save the Physical Attack Drop. Luckily for her, Leaf Storm was a Special move, and Serperior's special attack had doubled from the last round.

"Leaf Storm."

She had absolutely no problem utilizing such a basic strategy, especially since, to her knowledge, Douken had no viable counters. Another Leaf Storm blazed out towards Koldo, more powerful than before. That Frog simply had to go down.

Thanks Dad, ran through his head. He taught him many tricks when growing up, such as keeping eyes out on suspicious conditions and keeping up the research on new events. To be honest, if he didn't catch that special from Unova about "Dream Abilities," he would of not known about Contrary. Then again, he too would of thought Canaan had Shed Skin as well.

And speaking of Canaan's ability, as soon as the spores too affect, locking the dragon's muscles, her scales had more of a shine to them, hardening and tightening her defenses. Unfortunately, it wouldn't do so well with the Serperior boosting his Special Attack so dramatically, having Douken return his knocked out frog. Not like he was simply going to let her get away with paralysis alone. The Lum berry fixed confusion, but not this.

"Thunder Wave!" With electricity forming around the dragon's body, she let out the burst of energy, spreading across the field to the Serperior. Two paralyzed serpents remained, and whoever came on top would win the battle completely.

Chloe crossed her arms as she watched her Serperior become wracked with paralysis. Now it was a war between two paralyzed serpentine opponents. Serperior had taken no actual damage so far, but Douken's Dragonair had already taken a powerful Wring Out from her Victreebel.

Even with paralysis on both ends, she still had the upper hand, and the incredible strength of Leaf Storm continually boosting Serperior's special attack. Serperior's Special Attack had been boosted enough that it was essentially three times as powerful, meaning that it surpassed Dragon type's resistance and then some. After this one, it'd be essentially super effective.

"Leaf Storm."

The strategy had been referred to by her particularly nerdy opponents as "More Dakka", and she knew exactly what she was getting in to. Since, to her knowledge, Dragonair didn't possess moves like "Torment", meant that she could continue to use Leaf Storm with relative impunity.

Shrugging through the paralysis for this round, Serperior launched yet another incredible barrage of razor sharp leaves, aimed at shredding the weakened opponent. Unless Douken pulled out some amazing tactic, a few more rounds would mean the end of his challenge.

And here was where he was regretting not choosing his ghost over Canaan. At first sign he could of locked away that Leaf Storm before pulverizing with Fire Punches like a broken record like how she was with Leaf Storm. Yes, repeating moves made it boring and very less strategic, but the power that was boasted by it was that to drive anyone nuts.

"Canaan, throw a Twister around your body!" Having her spin around, he had to get very technical with his choice of moves now. In this case, use the wind Twister pulled up as a barrier to try and reduce the damage (yes, it was moving some leaves out of the way, but a good chunk was still getting through) before expanding it out to use its strike against the opposing Serperior.

Cmon, think. There has to be a way to stop all that power. its stamina may run dry, but it won't stop all that offensive force with any other special attack. If it wasn't for that Lum Berry, he would of left a lot more comfortable.

Chloe watched impassively as the Twister batted aside just a small portion of the massive leaf storm. The Twister, while a boosted by Same-Type Attack bonus, was a fairly weak attack, and Serperior had now received his first portion of damage. With another Leaf Storm on the way, she was sure that the battle would end fairly soon. She'd used the move thrice now, meaning that the stat boost had tripled Serperior's special attack. Chloe had no time for flashiness - she had promised this man a battle, and now she had to get back to work.

"Leaf Storm." Her nerdier opponents had referred to the tactic as "More Dakka", but whatever they called it, it didn't change the fact that Serperior was an incredibly tough opponent. Special Attack Tripled, STAB Boosted, Base 130 power move that kept powering her up, she figured it as viable a strategy as any. At least it was better than the 'button mashers' who just threw any old move haphazardly at her.

Crossing her arms, she prepared for another massive storm, but instead, her Serperior bunched up in pain. The paralysis had taken hold for the turn, giving Douken another move. The paralysis was on both ends of the field, but Chloe had the dumb luck of feeling its effects first.

Even with the temporary setback, she figured Serperior had at least two more leaf storms in him, the next one would essentially be a super effective hit on the already weakened Dragonair.

An opening! Shot through his mind, giving the dragon a window for a powerful blow. However, she had to fight through her own paralysis got it to work.

"Canaan, Dragon Tail!" Her muscles twitched as she tried to concentrate, the blue hue slowly getting on. He was on the edge of his feet, fingers crossed, hoping she could fight it through. Miss this window, and it was surely going to be a loss. However, Lady Luck went on his side of the coin flip as her tail roared in a blue aura. "Alright! Let's go!"

Swooping low to the floor, she glided as fast as possible until she was at nose reach before taking a sharp trn, letting her tail slam hard at the Serperior. Normally, this move was so powerful it would actually send him back into his Pokeball for a switch, but considering he was the last one left, it was only a chance (considering he never used it before). If it did and removed the strength boosts, he would be a happy camper, but that luck never plays out.

Once again, Chloe seemed quite indifferent at Douken's choice of moves. If his Dragonair had resisted all of those attacks from her two powerful Pokemon, then she had no worries about her defensively superior Serperior.

The Serperior tanked the tail glowing with fierce draconic energy, and stumbled back a few paces from the hefty blow. With a low, sinister hiss, he slithered back to his position on the field. Dragon Tail had lowered priority, but he'd wasted his turn being paralyzed. There was also no chance of him being forcibly retreated, as he was the last Pokemon, with no available switches.

"Leaf Storm"

She watched impassively as her stalwart battler fought through his paralysis, whipping up the biggest storm he had in a gym battle to date. The gleaming leaves rushed the Dragonair, while also powering up the Serperior once more. With three leaf storms already behind it, the force was essentially four times as powerful as it normally was.

The Leaf Storm tore through Canaan, completely covering the field in a veritable hurricane of leaves and kicked up sand and debris. Only the battle-roar of the Serperior and the equially determined cry from Canaan echoed eerily through the maelstrom.

Once the storm subsided, Canaan lay defeated on the ground.

"Douken Sota, that was a most admirable challenge. Probably one of the most difficult I've had recently. I'm very impressed with you work."

The Serperior slithered up to her side on her platform, his normally haughty glare replaced with one of respect and deference for the trainer.

"I'll tell you what; next time you want a challenge, just call. I'll carve time out of my schedule to accept." She smiled, flipping off her sunglasses and placing them neatly in her jacket pocket. "No lie. Seriously, I'm looking forward to it."

She flashed a smile, then retreated from the gym chamber, her Serperior in tow. Once she was sure she was out of sight, she gave herself a little fist pump, smiling to herself.

"The streak continues."

A sigh of disappointment left his lips as he was announced a loss. His first loss of the league, though with her win streak, she clearly showed why she held her title. Honestly, he could also blame himself wanting to test Canaan out in a gym battle instead of relying on the strength and experience Reep had.

After returning his Dragon, he reached into his bag to pull out a Cheri Berry to toss to the victor. "I'd hope so. Next time I will be sure to make things even harder," he managed to get in before she was gone."However, I will take him on before I go back for you." His next opponent: Maxi Z. Gym Leader of his home and brother Amazon.

With goodbyes told and a quick trip to the Pokemon Center, me made sure everything was ready before he took to the elevator. Once he was back on the surface world, it would be time to move again.
