And a Golurk



Super-effective attacks were coming in at Serperior from two fronts. While both attacks were pretty bad, poison was a decent threat. Status ailments could make or break a victory. As such, Chloe focused her efforts on the nidoking.

“Golem, Tackle! Hold him back!”

The rock type obliged, colliding head on with Bachi. The venomous arm plunged into his rocky surface. Rather than move away however, the golem grabbed the nidoking’s arm, keeping the poison pumping into his body. Sure, poison would be ineffective, but attaining the status ailment would be inevitable.

This also meant that the grass snake only had to deal with one super-effective attack. The silver spores beat upon the serperior’s form, causing the pokemon to shrink close to the ground to avoid getting blown over. The grass type hissed angrily, patches of his skin sanded by the attack. Chloe was well aware of the power of the attacks and issued the next move accordingly.

“Serperior, Giga Drain on the nidoking.”

A green aura started transferring from Bachi to the Serperior, draining the life-force from the foe. Aided by the boost from the Leaf Storm attack, those patches of damaged skin started to heal over. The serperior raised itself away from the ground, having recovered from the attack. He still wasn’t happy with the ledyba and vowed to turn the tables soon enough.

Taggarty Lee



The round of combat had taken a turn in favour of Tag's team. The damage from Silver Wind had been healed, but Chloe had been forced onto the defensive for the first time this match. The margin for victory creeped ever so slightly in his direction, and the definitely needed that impetus to continue his counter-attack.

The Serperior and Golem had annoyed Bachi greatly, and his tail flicked angrily back and forth as he waited for a command, still held tight by the Golem's arms. With the Golem in check, Suzu was left free, and without the Smack Downs keeping her grounded, she rose into the air.

A note of concern crossed Tag's eyes as he watched the unsteady ascent of his Ledian friend. She wasn't long for the battle, so luckily Chloe had focused her efforts on his more offensive minded partner. The Reflect technique she'd set up earlier was set to fade, and he needed to get some steady hits in now, lest the chance for victory faded forever.

"Bachi, Double kick!" Using Earth Power at such close range would prove hazardous to the user, meaning Tag had to rely on Bachi's martial skills. The King of Poison Pin Pokemon sprang off the ground, still attached to the Golem, and thrust both of his legs forward at the creature's rocky carapace, hopefully landing a solid pair of super effective hits. Double Kick wasn't the strongest of Bachi's moves, but using Counter against a Tackle seemed silly.

"Suzu! Silver Wind!" With her Swarm ability still active, the Five-Star Pokemon honed in on the Serperior and launched another wave of spore-laden wind. The stinging attack lanced towards the regal snake once more. Tag needed Chloe on the defensive until Golem was out, and hopefully he could focus the two on one against her final pokemon. Yet, the fatigue that plagued his team was beginning to rear its ugly head. Chloe's fully charged Serperior was more than likely more than a match for both of his remaining fighters.

Chloe watched Tag continued his offensive. Her golem was about out: poison combined with super-effective hits had taken their toll. Ledian’s bug attacks would quickly whittle her serperior down unless something was done quickly.

“Golem, Rock Blast on the Ledian!”

The golem was launched off the nidoking, managing to land with a shaky stance upon the gravel. With one last defiant roar, the rock pokemon tore off chunks of its rocky shell and threw them at the ledian as it was launching its silver wind assault. The golem only managed to do this three times before finally toppled over, fainted from the battles. Still, Chloe didn’t pause as she called back the golem and quickly directed her other pokemon.

“Serperior, Giga Drain on the Nidoking!”

The grass snake continued to drain whatever health was left within the poison pin pokemon. This also lessened the sting of the Silver Wind. In effect, it was as if the ledyba was attacking the nidoking, with the serperior taking only a fraction of the damage.

The battle had quickly turned into a war of attrition. All four pokemon on both sides of the field were launching potent attacks at their enemies, leaving no side untouched.

As Suzu's Silver Wind died down, Tag watched her glow with a surprising radiance. The silver spores that had whipped back at her had come to rest on her carapace, giving her a brilliant sheen. The new shimmer indicated that Silver Wind's secondary effect had taken place, giving Suzu a new boost in all of her combat parameters.

Ready to make use of this, Tag jumped ahead of the situation, plotting out a few moves in advance to sweep the field. This in turn blocked out both his mental reaction to Golem's Rock Blast attack. Both Ledian and Trainer gasped in surprise as the first rock slammed into the former. The two subsequent blows floored unfortunate Suzu, and left her laying unconscious on the floor.

"Suzu, return." Tag almost growled, clutching the pokeball to his chest for a slow moment before returning it almost reverently to his poke-belt.

Golem's attack had effectively been a suicide one, leaving the Rock Monster unconscious in turn, succumbing to Bachi's potent poison.

Bachi, in turn, now rested on the brink of defeat in turn, having weathered several hits even from his early entrance. Tag knew that defeat was just around the corner, especially since Chloe's Serperior stood as strong, if not stronger, than from when he'd entered the arena.

Tag's hand flew up in the air.

"I concede!" He called across the field. The admission of defeat countered strongly with the evident willpower still etched on Tag's face. Despite his words, he still wanted to fight, but underneath his fighting spirit, his concern for Bachi shone brightly. There was absolutely no need to have his pokemon receive further harm from a now unavoidable loss. Tag's luck had run out, finally.

Bachi's head snapped over his shoudler in a disbelieving glare at his trainer. There was no surprise that the Nidoking wished to continue fighting despite the odds, and he seemed furious at Tag's decision to end the match early. Before further protest could be made, Tag called Bachi back to his side.

Begrudgingly, the poison monster trundled back to his master's side, spitefully avoiding his trainer's intense gaze.

"You'll have another chance. We'll be better prepared next time." Tag's attempt to assuage his pokemon fell on bitter ears, and Bachi evidently refused to accept Tag's tactical wisdom on the matter. With a sigh, the tattooed man returned his most powerful pokemon to his pokeball.

"Thank you for the excellent match." Tag gave a short, curt bow. "I look forward to the rematch, Miss Davenport."

With that, he turned and left the arena area, heading up to the stands. His pokemon were wounded, but out of respect, he'd at least stay to watch Jill's match, as she had for him. At least in the stasis of their pokeballs, no further ills could befall them for the time being. As he passed Jill, he gave her a nod:

"Good luck."

Just as the match came down to a one-on-one fight, Tag had decided to concede. Chloe was somewhat disappointed: she would have preferred to finish the match and win by her own strength. Nonetheless, Chloe called back her serperior, who was looking back at the nidoking with a smug smile. Before the grass snake could taunt his opponent further, he was reabsorbed into his pokeball. The gym leader walked across the stage and returned his bow with her own. Granted, she was more used to handshakes, but to each their own.

“Until next time,” Chloe replied as Tag walked to the audience area. She then walked quickly to her jacket and pulled out a smartphone. There was still business to be had after all. She flipped through schedules and contacted her assistant.

“Jeannette, please tell me the Brooks order is out. …Good. Get the other orders ready for tomorrow. And bring me my other belt. I think I have another challenger.”

As she said this, she picked through her collection of pokemon via her phone had a new set of three sent to her office. The next battle would soon begin.

Jill tried so hard not to blink as she watched Tag and Chloe battle with a level of fierceness she'd never seen. They did more than simply battle and issue commands every turn - There was a level of strategy she'd never really considered. Like chess, it seemed as though both trainers were thinking multiple turns ahead. She wanted to utilize these tactics, but her pokemon were still fairly low leveled and her own skill level and knowledge of the system was lackluster. Still, she was smart, and quick to learn.

Losing this battle wouldn't be the worst thing ever - After all, even Tag lost - But winning would really be a feat. And so, it made sense to play a risky battle. She had access to a fair few status inflicting attacks, so she figured she'd try them out.

She nodded to Tag as he and Chloe made their way to the audience area, but she didn't say anything. She needed to focus on the upcoming battle, even though Chloe clearly had thoughts elsewhere. Though she buried her face in her phone, Jill extended her arm. "I'm Jill Laurent," she said. "I'm no expert at battling, but I hope I can at least hold your attention for the entire fight."

As Chloe finished arranging her team, she looked up to notice that her next challenger was ready with hand outreached. The gym leader took her eyes off her phone and shook the challenger’s hand. Chloe had to do a double take upon hearing the name Jill Laurent. That name…it sounded so familiar. She racked her brain for a few moments just as her assistant Jeannette came running down the hall with another belt of pokeballs. As the two switched belts, Chloe recalled an email she had sent early that morning. It had all their tax information within it. Though the company worked with a particularly large firm, she recalled the specific accountant that would be handling the case. Or at least was, as said accountant was staring Chloe right in the face.

“Aren’t you our accountant?” Chloe asked Jill. She hoped she was wrong: the cowboy hat and boots were not at all reassuring that the company’s money was in good hands…

It took Jill a moment to figure out what Chloe was talking about. She only knew the gym leader by the name "Chloe" and she only knew the account by "Davenport" so it didn't quite click at first. Then she remembered there was one very large flower shop account. It stood out because, unlike what Jill assumed flower shops were like, this one was freakin huge. Apparently, this gym was that very same flower shop and it all solidified in her mind when she remember "Chloe Davenport" from the papers.

"Oh," she responded, taking a step back. "You'll, uh, you'll probably get a call about that in the near future. I'm not an accountant anymore. As you can see, I'm a pokemon battler." Perhaps she should have said something along the lines of, "I can assure you your account has been placed in extremely capable hands, as all certified accountants at our firm are top of the line!" But frankly, she didn't care about Chloe's account anymore.

"So," she continued. "I have my three pokemon all picked out, and I think I'm ready, assuming you are."

In silence, Chloe wondered why someone who was making a pretty good living as an accountant would give it up to go back to being a child. Indeed, there wasn’t much money in being a pokemon trainer; most trainers Chloe knew were competing for scholarships, funded by research grants, or simply had rich parents. Whatever the reason, the fact of the matter was that Jill was here and awaiting her match. The gym leader would kindly deliver. But first, she had to check the status of her account.

Jeannette approached Chloe with a fresh set of pokeballs, trading them for the battle-weary set from Tag’s match. After Chloe whispered about the status of the account, the assistant immediately took out her phone she headed outside towards the pokemon center. With that, the gym leader turned back to her challenger, pokeballs in hand.

“Everyone out!”

With that, two pokemon emerged in front of Chloe. One was a big cotton ball with leaves for arms: a cottonee. The other pokemon was a cute little hermit crab pokemon, a dwebble. Waiting in the wings beside Chloe was a fierce-looking larvitar, who snarled at the opposition.

“This is your first gym match, yes? You may make the first move.” After the match with Tag, Chloe was somewhat more confident in handling Jill’s team, whatever they consisted of.

Jill simply nodded once Chloe's pokemon had appeared. She had no advantage in knowing Chloe's team - Hers was already picked as well, and it was going to be Pele, Vinyl and Vulpix regardless. So, she summoned all three of them. They all looked prepared for battle. Jill was no expert battler, but she was fierce in many ways, and her pokemon picked up on that. Though Vulpix was new to the team, she was clearly somewhat competitive on her own. Jill was confident.

Upon Vulpix entering, the entire stadium began radiating with heat. Her Drought ability caused an automatic (and permanent) Sunny Day effect, which could only be negated by another weather effect. Sunny Day was extremely effective for Jill's entire team, and of this she was aware. It was possible, though, that Chloe was prepared for this.

Regardless, the advantage Jill did have was in picking which two pokemon were going to be fighting the Dwebble and the Cottonee. Jill chose Vinyl and Pele - She'd have Pele's power with Vinyl's speed (boosted by Chlorophyll) while also having the Drought support from Vulpix without actually being in the front lines.

"Okay," Jill nodded, her heart racing just a little bit faster. She needed to think - She wasn't an expert on pokemon types, but Dwebble looked like a bug type, which was weak to fire, and Cottonee was obviously Grass. Of course, Chloe's theme was Rock and Grass, so Bug alone didn't make sense. Dwebble was also a Rock type, evident by the gigantic freakin' rock on its back. None of her pokemons' attacks would be able to easily take down Dwebble as effectively as Pele could probably take down Cottonee.

"Vinyl, use Sleep Powder on Dwebble. Pele, use Flame Charge on Cottonee." Though she probably wouldn't get as much time for strategy in her subsequent attacks, Chloe did actively give her the first move, so she took advantage of it. Pele would be able to do significant damage to Cottonee, boosted by her effectiveness against grass, on top of the Sunny Day boost, and it would increase her own speed to make her a bigger threat in the future. Vinyl's Sleep Powder (if it hit) would take care of what Jill perceived as the biggest threat to her pokemon on Chloe's team without having to take it down over the course of multiple turns.

It was a temporary solution, but she was less worried about Larvitar, whose sole Rock typing she could actually take advantage of.

The battle started with fire and status moves, two attacks that were expected among Jill’s types. Fire attacks were quite devastating to grass types, but the cottonee had the defense to take a few hits. The cotton ball’s main tactic however lied in his ability. Being quite the Prankster, the cottonee was quite speedy when it came to non-damaging attacks. Chloe took advantage of this with a variety of annoying moves. Fresh off being the victim of such moves from Tag’s team, she was ready to turn the tables.

“Cottonee, Taunt the weepinbell!”

The cotton ball used his leaf in a finger wagging motion, egging the weepinbell to approach. This was quite a gamble for Chloe’s team. True, the grass type’s ability gave it priority over sleep powder, saving Dwebble from being disabled for the battle. On the other hand, a powered up flame charge collided straight into the cottonee, covering its body with singes. The cotton ball remained conscious, but it likely couldn’t take much more from the blazing pony.

Fortunately, Dwebble was ready for support.

“Dwebble, Sand Attack on the ponyta.”

The rock inn pokemon dug its claw deep into the sea of pebbles to find the appropriate material. Soon enough, the dwebble quickly swiped forward, sending a concentrated stream of sand towards the ponyta’s face. Such a simple attack could make or break the match.

Vinyl's attack was made ineffective by the Cottonee. Evidently, it was faster than even Weepinbell, meaning it probably had the ability Chlorophyll as well. (This was Jill's logic, and it was sound yet incorrect.) Taunt forced Weepinbell to only use attack moves, which were not his forte. The Dwebble then used its turn to weaken Pele with Sand Attack, an accuracy reducing move. It was the less scary of the two attacks Chloe made, and so Jill's attention naturally turned to the Cottonee, whose taunt was particularly dangerous.

"Vinyl, use Weather Ball on Cottonee," If it had to attack, it might as well, and Weather Ball, given the Sunny Day, would be a powerful Fire attack, super effective against the Cottonee. Jill didn't have her hopes up though, as she suspected it had a lot up its sleeve.

"Pele, switch with Vulpix," Pele returned to her side unquestioningly as she knew battle was not currently in her best interest, given the sand all in her eyes. Vulpix jumped out, ready to go in her stead. This was the entirety of Jill's turn, but she was still very nervous because of Cottonee. The problem with that pokemon was not that it was strong, or fast. It was that it put the flow of battle in Chloe's hands.

Chloe watched as Jill switched up tactics. The gym leader was expecting a Wrap or Vine Whip, something the cottonee could outlast. Turns out the challenger had Weather Ball, a fire attack under these conditions. It looked like the cotton ball was not going to get a chance to set up. Still, there were still a few tricks up their sleeves. One happened to present itself as the vulpix entered the field.

“Quick, Worry Seed on the vulpix!”

A tiny seed shot out from the cottonee, landing right upon the fox’s head. The replacement of abilities caused the clouds to return. With Sunny Day no longer in effect, the impending weather ball was switched to a normal attack. Though it hit square on, the cottonee was not reduced to ashes.

It was time for the dwebble to provide some actual fire power.

“Dwebble, Rock Blast on that vulpix!”

The little hermit crab began grabbing the large pebbles that covered the ground, firing them off in quick succession towards the fire type. In total, five were fired, but who knew how many would meet their mark.

She had to think fast. Rocks were being hurled at Vulpix, but they didn't look too huge, and Dwebble seemed more like a defensive powerhouse than an attacking force. She'd be able to survive a few, even given their super effectiveness. Switching her out to Pele wouldn't do much help anyway, as her Fire type was weak to Rock as well. Evasion wasn't an option, and so she went with her other:

"Vulpix, use Flame Burst on Cottonee!"

She had to think about the next move, though. With Sunny Day unfortunately down, Vinyl was no longer at such a severe advantage. Well, he was still faster than Dwebble, she figured, so basically, he couldn't use Weather Ball. Flame Burst would likely take care of Cottonee, however. "Vinyl, use Vine Whip on Dwebble." It wouldn't do massive damage, but it would be at least neutral. This, along with Vulpix's Flame Burst, which was so explosive, it would likely also hit Dwebble, would begin to chip away at the threat, while Cottonee, who seemed to be on its last legs (or whatever), would likely faint from the Flame Burst, unless Jill severely miscalculated some level advantage.

It appeared Cottonee was done for the match. He did not have enough HP to make a substitute; all the fire attacks never gave him a chance to set up. Still, the cotton ball would go out with one last parting gift.

“Cottonee, Poisonpowder on the vulpix!”

The cottonee shook rapidly, releasing a cloud of purple powder just before the fireball was released. The fire burst struck the cotton ball dead on, embers hitting the dwebble. Though the rock inn pokemon managed to survive another day, the cottonee was flipped on his back, finally taken down. The weepinbell smacked the dwebble further with vine whips, somewhat less effective than the fire due to his higher defense. Still, he would need the backup from the third pokemon in Chloe’s arsenal.

Before Chloe could call back the grass type, the larvitar was already on the field. He kicked the cottonee aside and stood ready to go on the assault.

“Easy, Larvitar,” Chloe said calmly as she summoned her cottonee back. Though a look of malice stayed fixed upon his face, the larvitar nodded in accordance. Having already suffered the first knockout, Chloe’s team would have to work extra hard to play catch up.

“Dwebble, Rock Blast! Larvitar, Sandstorm!”

The hermit crab kept up the assault upon the vulpix, launching larger stones towards the fox. Meanwhile, the larvitar raised his arms to summon the sands beneath the pebble surface. Like the golem before him, the rock type promptly disappeared as the sand curtain emerged over the arena once more. Chloe donned her sunglasses once more and watched the battle rage on.

There was a hint of success, as the Cottonee had finally fallen. But the arrival of Larvitar wasn't particularly exciting to Jill. More importantly, and as expected, Chloe had Dwebble continue its rocky assault on Vulpix. Not only was Sunny Day beneficial to her, but Sandstorm was detrimental. She had to reinvoke it in order to have a chance, and she knew this from the start.

So, as soon as the Flame Burst made contact, she prepared Vulpix's pokeball. Once the rocks were blasted towards her, Jill called her back, and Pele the Ponyta jumped into the fray, taking the rocks in Vulpix's place, unquestioningly. She was hit by three, and they hurt quite a bit given her fire type, but it was worth it.

"Vinyl, Sleep Powder on-"

Larvitar was clearly the more offensive pokemon, so putting it to sleep instead had the most logic. It would have been her decision too, if she didn't notice that behind the flying chunks of rock and sand in the area (due to its own Sandstorm) it became harder for her to see him. This was likely on purpose, and Sleep Powder was already a fairly inaccurate ability. "Dwebble!"

It wasn't the most fortunate scenario for her. Yes, she did still have all three of her pokemon, but she already noticed some errors she made. For starters, she would have to use two turns to reactivate Sunny Day (One to recall Vulpix, and one to send her back out) while Larvitar only had to use it once. That wasn't too appealing, but in the very least she could force Larvitar to waste a turn reactivating Sandstorm. Also, relying on an inaccurate move like Sleep Powder wasn't necessarily her first choice.

Chloe watched Jill’s tactics: specifically, her constant switching of pokemon. The challenger was wasting valuable turns as a result, giving Chloe an opening. It also allowed her to predict what would happen next. Before that however, there was a sleep powder attack to deal with. The hermit crab retreated deeper into the sandstorm, allowing the pollen to dissipate within the winds. Now was the time to make the next set of moves.

“Dwebble, Stealth Rock! Larvitar, Rock Slide!”

The dwebble struck the ground, activating a set of sharp rocks on Jill’s side of the arena, giving her constant switching tactics an added consequence. On top of that, Larvitar unleashed a strong physical attack on both the ponyta and weepinbell. The rock skin pokemon raised his hands in the air. Suddenly, the pebbled surface under their feet rose into the air like a massive tidal wave. It rose out of the sandstorm, only crash right back down to earth upon Jill’s pokemon.

Stealth Rock. That meant no more switching. Really, though, she only needed one more switch, bringing in Vulpix. However, her weakness to Rock meant it would do significant damage. It meant Pele had to stay in until she fainted, though, which wasn't a tactic of which Jill was particularly proud.

On top of this, Larvitar finally got off a decent offensive attack, and it was a big one. Pele had a weakness to Rock type attacks, and Vinyl took neutral damage. Still, Dwebble had already taken some damage, and it took neutral damage from both Pele and Vinyl.

"Pele, Flame Wheel on Dwebble. Vinyl, Vine Whip on the same target."

Fortunately, aside from the Rock Slide and the minimal Sandstorm damage, neither Vinyl nor Pele had taken any hits. Vulpix took the majority of the offensive attacks, meaning Pele and Vinyl had at least another turn of Larvitar's Rock Slide. Well, Vinyl did. But she'd take it.

Chloe watched as Jill focused her pokemon not on the larvitar but on the dwebble. True, her larvitar was a difficult target within the sandstorm, but he still posed the most pressing threat. Nonetheless, the gym leader had a plan.

“Dwebble, protect!”

The hermit crab used his massive shell to block both flaming pony and vegetarian whiplash. The larvitar did not need to be told twice to continue with the rock slide. Yet another wave of rocks rained down upon the opponents’ side of the field. Though Chloe wasn’t comfortable with such a predictive pattern of attack, she could not argue that it was effective.

While Vinyl was not the smartest leaf on the tree (unless it was on a regular tree with non-metaphoric leaves), Pele wasn't stupid. When Dwebble closed itself off to attacks, she immediately spun around and changed her sight to Larvitar. Though it was somewhat difficult to see him in the sandstorm, the unpredictability in her move, coupled with her decision to use a different attack entirely, made it actually kind of easy.

She used Growl, a typically weak move, but using a Fire attack against him went against her nature. It wasn't a tactical decision, it was a natural response. Here was an offensively powerful pokemon to whom she did very little damage, all she really could do was growl at it. She was bigger, faster and actually stronger. Aside from type advantage, she was the more powerful pokemon, so intimidation made some sense to her.

Needless to say, Jill was pleased with the outcome of that round of attacks. Pele's split second decision to disobey her trainer not only allowed her to actually accomplish something rather than throwing all of her attacks against an invulnerable target, but it also saved her from the Rock Slide. Vinyl was still hit by it, but it didn't hurt too incredibly bad. More importantly, things were about to get a lot better for him.

"So proud of you, girl," Jill said to Pele, holding out her pokeball. Because she evaded the second Rock Slide, coming in on the Stealth Rocks wouldn't be enough to do her in. In her place, Vulpix came out. Though the stealth rocks were there, assaulting her as soon as she was made present, her ability, Drought, set in. She was immediately knocked out, but with the sandstorm subsided, Larvitar was now made very clear.

"Vinyl, put Larvitar to sleep!"

Then, she sent out her final pokemon, Pele. Though the stealth rocks assaulted her, she remained in tact. No longer was she being pelted by the sandstorm, and she could see her opponents so clearly. The sun rained down upon her, intensifying the flames on her back and tail. She was ready.
