Adam could tell the other trainer was frustrated but he was fine with that. He also knew he could be nice, call Anisette back and bring out a different pokemon that didn't have such effective moves and a natural immunity to ghost types. But he really wanted the Haunter off the battlefield and unable to return for the duration of the battle. When Anisette's attack hit and the Haunter flopped across the arena, he allowed himself a smirk. "Again." Anisette gave him a curious look, he didn't usually have her keep using the same move over and over, but she flicked her ears and built up another ball of shadowy energy. If Adam told her to use Shadow Ball, she'd use it. With that thought in mind, she launched the second orb at the sleeping ghost.

This was not going well. Dakota was beginning to regret her decision to take this guy up on his offer. Was a drink with alcohol in it worth her pokémon team getting knocked out? And now that that thought was in her mind, she began to feel a little guilty. She was being selfish, making her pokémon fight for her just so she could get a drink. She took in a deep breath and let it out slowly, keeping her cool. On the bright side, her pokémon were getting experience and that was always a good thing.

Samara was passed out. Without some sort of medical intervention, she was done for. Dakota was struggling with her next move. She wanted to return Samara and protect her from further harm. Part of her wanted to give it one more turn, hoping that Samara would wake up and be able to retaliate. However, she wasn't sure Samara could take another hit, especially if Adam had his pokémon repeat that ghost-type move again. Before she could make a decision, she saw the same dark purple energy from before begin to form in front of the Eevee again.

She froze, not wanting to return her Haunter but not wanting to watch her get hit again either. Sadly, it was too late, and the ball of shadow rushed towards Samara and hit her head on. Her sleeping Haunter took the hit, sending her rolling across the arena floor once more. Dakota cringed, and instantly cursed at herself for not making a decision faster. At least Samara was fast asleep and probably couldn't feel the attack. "Samara, return!" Dakota said, with pain in her voice. A thin stream of light appeared on the battlefield and engulfed her Haunter, sucking her back into her pokéball.

Dakota felt relief but only for a moment, because now she had to choose her next plan of attack and in all honesty, she didn't have much of a plan. Samara was her prize winner, and with her down and out, Dakota had lost her confidence. She rifled through her pocket, running the other pokéballs through her fingers and trying to make a decision. Her eyebrows furrowed for just a moment when one of the pokéballs seemed to radiate heat as it passed through her fingers, and she smiled.

"Mkay, time for the tables to turn." she said, more to herself than anyone else. She pulled the warm pokéball from her pocket and tossed it into the air. "Nabooru, your turn!" she yelled, and the pokéball burst open releasing her Fletchinder into the air. The black and red bird flew straight up, performing a graceful back flip before circling back to the battlefield. She let out a loud string of chirps that sounded not only happy to be free but ready to jump into battle. Dakota grinned, feeling much better now that she was back on her game.

Samara was defeated.
Dakota sent out Nabooru!

The shadowy blob struck and the Huanter was withdrawn. Whether she was knocked out or the trainer simply didn't want to see her get battered by super effective moves anymore he wasn't sure. All he knew was that the Haunter was gone and a tension eased from his shoulders, the fear he hadn't done a very good job of hiding starting to lessen without the ghost pokemon in view.

His opponent's second choice was a Flechinder. Neither of the two pokemon had a significant advantage over the other. He could change that by recalling Anisette and using one of his electric types. Or he could be nice and leave Anisette on the battlefield. Or he could be even nicer and call on his recently obtained Metang and give himself the disadvantage. To be honest, he wasn't feeling very nice and was sorely tempted to call on Margarita. The Electrike would make short work of the bird. But he didn't. What was the point? The other trainer was clearly unsettled. He was guessing the Haunter was her primary pokemon and the one she relied on most often. She was at enough of a disadvantage without him adding to it. "Okay Annie, one down two to go. Let's start this one off with Sand Attack." Despite the flying type's normal immunity to ground type moves, Sand Attack still affected them the same as any other pokemon. Anisette gave a small chirp and swiped a pawful of sand from the gym floor at the Flechinder.

Dakota watched proudly as Boo flew around the arena. When she first came across her as a cute little Fletchling, she was attempting various fancy flying maneuvers such as front flips, back flips, and everything in between. She showed promise, but at the time she still had trouble with keeping her balance while ascending and descending. Since then, she's not only mastered the art of fancy flying, she's evolved and grown much stronger all around. Dakota was very proud of her on multiple levels. Now it was time to test her abilities once again.

The Eevee had the first move, and Adam gave his order. The little brown cat-like pokémon moved quickly, and kicked up some sand into the air. The timing was just about spot-on, as her Fletchinder flew in circles and flew right through the sand cloud. Dakota heard her chirp and sneeze a few times and she fluttered through and back into the air. She shook her head, faltering a touch before regaining her balance. Dakota grit her teeth, getting frustrated more. She needed to take the offensive this round, for sure.

"Use your Flame Charge." she said sternly, taking a stand. Boo's head tilted just slightly at her words before she dove downwards through the air. Her wings locked into place, and as she soared in a downward spiral pattern small flames began to form around her beak and head. By the time she reached her opponent, her body was coated in a thick layer of fire. Her speed built with her aerodynamic shape as she descended, aiming straight for her opponent and bracing for impact. Dakota watched nervously, biting her lower lip.

Nabooru's accuracy fell.
Nabooru used Flame Charge!

The Sand Attack worked like a charm and the Flechinder looked a bit disoriented for a second as it wavered in the air before regaining itself. Anisette gave a nod of satisfaction but didn't let the minor victory go to her head. She knew better. She wouldn't make the same mistake twice in the same battle. As the Flechinder dove at her, flames cloaking its body, the Eevee prepared to leap aside and avoid it. "Annie, use Swift." Anisette chirped uncertainly. Usually he told her to dodge. Did he not want her to? Confused she hesitated a moment too long. She was in a direct path of the Flame Charge and the bird stuck her, sending her skidding back a short ways.

She shook herself and glanced at Adam. He gazed back silently and she wondered what he was thinking. Humans were strange sometimes and this battle was unusual for how he normally had her do things. Deciding to try and get his attention, she flopped dramatically to her side. "Annie?" She twitched an ear and opened her eyes to look at him. "I know you're fine now get up, silly girl." His tone was amused but he still looked distracted. So she closed her eyes again and rolled until her feet stuck up in the air. She heard him sigh and give a little chuckle. "Fine. Come one then, return." The Eevee disappeared in a flash of light and Adam returned the pokeball to it's place on his belt. He eyed the Flechinder thoughtfully. He could send Lakka back out, her water typing would give her an advantage but she was already injured and not as strong as the bird.

His only other options for pokemon that were on the same level as the Flechinder were Margarita and Hpnotiq. Margarita had a type advantage, Hpnotiq was at a disadvantage. He knew this wasn't an official battle, but it would be foolish of him not to use any advantage he had. He plucked the Electrike's pokeball from it's place on his belt and gave it a little toss. Margarita appeared in a flash of crimson and immediately fixed her eyes on her opponent. A bird? This would be too easy. She immediately began to build up electricity, ready for whatever order she was given...except that Adam gave her an order she didn't expect. "Easy Rita, use Roar if you would please." She barked a question at her trainer and he only gave her a look. She had no idea what he was up to but she wouldn't disobey him. Mustering her voice, she loosed a horrible roar that would scare the bird back to its trainer and force another pokemon into the open. It was an odd strategy since she knew they could easily handle the bird pokemon, but clearly the boy had some plan in mind, even if she didn't know what it was.

Anisette was 'defeated'
Adam sends out Margarita!
Margarita used Roar!

Dakota couldn't help herself, she threw a fist into the air as soon as Nabooru's flame charge hit successfully. "Yes!" she said through gritted teeth, bringing her fist back down quickly and hoping nobody noticed. Composing herself quickly, she placed her hands on her hips and cleared her throat. The Eevee didn't look like the hit had caused it any severe harm, but after it staggered backwards it fell over onto its side. She watched closely, and glanced up at Adam to see his reaction. He seemed to be amused but wasn't too worried about her. Dakota expected the Eevee to hop right back up, but instead he returned her to her pokéball. Interesting...

Nabooru continued to fly in loops above their heads. Even though she had faltered after that sand attack, she was feeling just fine. She zoomed this way and that way, and Dakota could almost hear the whistling of the air as she flew through it. Dakota thought about asking her to calm down to save her strength for what was to come, but she chose to let her be. Adam clearly had a plan, since he was returning his pokémon despite her not being knocked out. Dakota squinted at him from across the arena, trying to figure out what he was up to. He tossed his next pokéball out onto the battle field and out popped a four-legged green and yellow pokémon. Dakota quickly took her eyes from the battlefield to check her pokédex, having not seen this particular pokémon before.

While she did that, Nabooru flew down closer to her new opponent, beginning to study her. The pokémon immediately lit up with sparks, causing Nabooru to flinch a little. She hated electricity, it stung worse than any other element she's been up against. She shot a worried look back at her trainer, who was busy looking at her pokégear, and let out a sigh. A very loud roar broke through the silence, causing Dakota to jump and focus back on the arena. Before she could even react, Nabooru was flying right towards her and the pokéball on her belt opened up, sucking Nabooru back inside it. Dakota blinked a few times, having no idea what had just happened. Adam must have used an attack that sent her pokémon back to her.

She had no choice in the matter. A different pokéball on her belt burst open, sending a burst of light out onto the battlefield that morphed into a short, stock blue pokémon. "Kai??" Dakota piped up finally, surprised to see her Cyndaquil out on the field. What on earth was she going to do now? Cyndaquil was still new to her, she had only just adopted him. This was literally their first battle together. Dakota felt a little pale all of a sudden, completely not prepared for this turn of events. After her brain finally caught up with what was happening, she continued to play it cool and gave a shrug. "Well, guess it's your turn little man." she said, and watched as the Cyndaquil gave a quick nod but didn't move.

Dakota cleared her throat. What moves did he even know again? She felt like a complete idiot, standing here not even knowing which moves her pokémon had. Trying to cover up any sort of insecurity, she blurted out a generic fire attack she was sure every fire-type pokémon knew. "Fire spin!" she ordered, with as much fake confidence as she could have. Her eyes were fixed on her Cyndaquil, who was not budging even the slightest. Dakota's stomach sank. He knew that attack, right? She heard Kai give an awkward grunt and then he turned his head to look at her. Oh god. she thought to herself, and her face lit up bright red. "I uh- That's not what I meant, I meant quick attack!" she coughed out, completely embarrassed. There, that was an attack she was positive he knew. What a mess...

Kai shook his head, disappointed that he somehow ended up with a completely inexperienced trainer. He gave another grunt and turned back towards his opponent. If he couldn't rely on his trainer for guidance, he'd have to do most of the work himself. He obeyed, and darted forward as fast as his round little body would take him. His little legs worked hard to carry him across the battlefield but he made it. As he approached his opponent, he tucked his legs in and dove forward head first. Dakota watched anxiously, more nervous about this battle than ever now.

Nabooru returned to her trainer.
Kai was sent out!
Kai used Quick Attack!

Margarita gave a toothy canine grin as the Flechinder zoomed back to her pokeball. A grin that only widened when some tiny rodent was sent out in the bird's place. Such a weakling. She had this battle won before it even started. And the trainer didn't seem to know what to do with it. Margarita gave a bark of laughter and readied herself for an attack. Adam took a moment to consider this turn of events. Two fire types and a ghost. Did Dakota have a thing for fire types? Or was it a coincidence?

Fire Spin was...a bad idea given that it would lock Margarita on the battlefield. The Electrike was stronger than the Cyndaquil. But the Cyndaquil didn't do anything. It just sat there. When Dakota called out a different attack, however, the Cyndaquil sprang into action, darting forward with more speed than Margarita could even hope to dodge. The smaller pokemon slammed into her and sent her staggering a few step. She huffed and shook herself from the impact. "Volt Switch." Adam's order rang clear and she huffed again. She could take this little scrap. Why was he making her return? Well whatever. She loosed a jolt of electricity at her opponent and immediately was sucked back into her pokeball. A flash of light and Lakka the Piplup returned to the battlefield, ready to take revenge for her earlier injuries.

Margarita used Volt Switch!
Margarita is replaced by Lakka!

The roller coaster ride continued. Dakota's embarrassment completely faded the second her little Cyndaquil's attack hit successfully. Instead of fist-pumping the air she stayed still, knowing by now that celebrating too early tends to jinx things. "Nice hit, Kai!" she hollered, watching the Electrike stumble backwards a little bit. It only faltered slightly, quickly regaining its posture. Kai trotted in a full circle back to his spot on the battle field, and gave an accomplished grunt.

Adam was quick to fire back another attack just like she knew he would be. His pokémon built up some electric energy and released it, shooting it forward towards Kai. Unfortunately, his trainer didn't pipe up in time and his stubby little legs couldn't have jumped out of the way in time. The electricity hit him with quite the force, engulfing his body. He yelped in pain, his muscles locked in rigid form as the current zapped through him. Even long after the attack had ended his muscles twitched.

Shortly after the Electrike's attack he disappeared back into his pokéball. Dakota shook her head, knowing this couldn't be good. Adam was up to something. If Dakota wasn't so stressed out about this battle she would find that attractive. She was very focused right now though, and not about to let this guy's cute mischievous smile distract her. However, when his cute little Piplup popped back out onto the battle field, she couldn't help but smile. Okay, let's take a deep breath and take things easy, she thought to herself. Let's have some fun, this is fun!

This penguin was a water type, she was sure of it. And that put her and Kai at a clear disadvantage. She had to be creative, and luckily for her an idea popped in her head right at that moment. She recalled that her little Cyndaquil was special, not like every Cyndaquil out there. He was bred specifically with certain moves that most weren't, and these moves she did remember. Some of them weren't fire-based, so she'd stick to those for now. "How about a double kick?" Dakota suggested, getting back in the zone. Kai nodded, full of confidence now that his trainer seemed to be focused. He darted forward towards the little penguin, only slightly slower than before with his muscles still recovering. Once he was close enough, he spun around quickly, his two rear legs swinging in a kicking motion.

Kai used Double Kick!

Adam knew he could win the battle easily at this point. Water against fire and electric against flying...he had the type advantage and the apparent added advantage of more battle experience. Or at least a stronger bond with his pokemon. "Lakka, brace yourself." The Piplup didn't question the order, didn't even hesitate, she just raised her flippers and took the Double Kick with a grunt. After the massive hit from the Haunter and now this, she was feeling pretty tired but she wasn't out yet. She could still fight.

Adam watched, considering his next move. "Alright, retaliate with Icy Wind." Lakka rolled her eyes but once again didn't hesitate or question him. She just opened her little beak and shot a blast of freezing air at the fire type. She didn't know what good it would do but Adam had promised to help her grow stronger and so far he hadn't been wrong. Every battle, win or lose, had helped her grow and this one was no different. She trusted him to know what he was doing.

Lakka used Icy Wind!

Kai's attack hit successfully again! Dakota couldn't help but celebrate this time, considering this was their first battle together. "Nice!" was all she said, and when Kai turned to trot back to his place she gave him a nod of appreciation. He nodded back, and she instantly felt relieved. He didn't think she was a complete moron after all. They were sort of working as a team already, which shouldn't have come as too much of a surprise considering. They both knew how a pokémon battle worked, this was nothing new to either of them.

Once Kai came to a stop, the penguin retaliated. It opened its little beak and spewed out a burst of cold, white air. Like the icy winds of winter, it blew forward and into Kai's face, sending chills down his spine and biting at his skin like frostbite. He cringed, pulling his arms and neck closer to his body and shivering. It stung, that was for sure, but not nearly as bad as the electricity he had suffered from earlier. In fact, the heat of his body and the flames embedded in his back quickly melted away any ice that clung to him. After a quick shake of his body, he took a step forward and readied himself for his next instruction.

Dakota watched closely, a little concerned and confused about why Adam had chosen an ice-type attack to use against her fire-type. She wasn't a battling genius by any means, but that was a no-brainer. Fire melts ice, simple as that. She shrugged, not about to bring it up or ask him what he was thinking. "Mkay..." she began, thinking of her next move. She hasn't said a word to Adam since the whole ghost incident, mostly because she felt a little bad about it but didn't want to admit it or bring it back up. She almost asked him what kind of game he was playing here, but she bit her tongue. "Fury swipes." she said instead.

Kai did not hesitate. He charged forward, extending his claws, and dove at his opponent. Depending on how the penguin reacted, this attack could either miss entirely or hit a few times. If he was really lucky, the Piplup wouldn't be able to retaliate quickly and he'd get in a good number of swipes. Dakota was going to be happy even if he only landed one successful hit, it was still better than nothing. When this night was over she planned to really take some one-on-one time with this new little guy, he clearly had potential.

Kai used Fury Swipes!

Lakka did not wait for Adam's command, as the Cyndaquil came at her again, she dodge to the side, rolling out of the way of the attack. Adam nodded at the successful dodge and noted the she sent him a pointed look as she regained her balance. He knew that she knew she could win this and that she thought he was being stupid. He also knew that if he kept trying to 'play fair' eventually Lakka would either lose and be frustrated with him, or she'd start disobeying and using moves she knew were effective. Since he didn't need either of those things happening, he gave her a sharp nod. "Oh alright, use Bubble. I know you want to anyway." It was a sound strategy, he knew that, but he also didn't really like this feeling of practically taking advantage of a newbie.

Lakka had no problem using her type to her advantage. She knew she could win this and she was going to do it whether Adam liked it or not. But he'd given her permission and now she didn't have to worry about being scolded about it later. So she opened her beak once again but this time it wasn't an icy cold wind that she sent at her opponent but a stream of damage dealing bubbles.

Lakka used Bubble!
Dodge: 1/3

Kai did his best, moving quickly with his sharp claws, but the little penguin was quicker. It managed to dodge each of Kai's swings, and after four or five attempts Kai seemed to be growing tired. His little arms could barely reach his opponent to begin with, and Dakota wrinkled her nose at herself for choosing that attack. Lesson learned. Her confidence began to slip again as Adam gave yet another order. His Piplup kept the quick pace and obeyed, spitting out a stream of bubbles from its little beak.

Dakota frowned and shook her head. Bubble? Damn... she thought, knowing it was only a matter of time before the water penguin used a water attack. Trying to react quickly and efficiently, she shook off the frustration she was feeling and spoke up. "Kai, look out!" she hollered. Her Cyndaquil was unfortunately a little too close, and despite his attempt to leap out of the way, a few of the bubbles still managed to hit him. They burst against his skin like little water balloons, where not only did the force of the pop hurt but the cold water suddenly splashing over his body as well. The pressure forced him forward and his little arms couldn't catch him. He fell to the ground, scraping his chin along the arena floor.

For a moment, he didn't move. Dakota's heart ached a little, beginning to realize she was going to lose this battle. Her best pokémon had barely stood a chance and was definitely not in any shape to be brought back out. Nabooru on the other hand had really only been in battle for one turn. She had suffered from a sand attack but otherwise was still in fighting shape. Dakota wasn't sure if she'd be allowed to send her back out or not, but she kept the thought close in her mind. She watched intensely, eyes locked on Kai's body watching for any sign of movement. "Kai??" she called across the battlefield.

He moved, and she let out a deep sigh of relief. He trembled, and pushed his way up to a sitting position. After a few heavy breaths, he wiggled his little rear end to turn around and face everyone. He had somehow held on, not quite knocked out just yet, but Dakota knew he was barely holding on. As badly as she wanted to attempt one last attack with him, the barely flickering flames on his back were tugging at her heart strings. "Whew, I'm glad you're okay. It's okay Kai, come on back." she finally said, holding up his pokéball and aiming the bright red beam of light at his body. The look of relief on his face before returning confirmed she had made the right decision.

Whelp, this is all I have left, she thought as she traded Kai's pokéball for Nabooru's. Unfortunately, Nabooru was also a fire type pokémon, but at least she could fly and most likely dodge attacks easier. Dakota shot a look across the arena to Adam, catching his attention. How did they end up battling again? Whose brilliant idea was this? She was already having a bad night, losing a battle and watching her pokémon fail was surely not going to make her feel better. Although, she had to admit, those feelings of anger she had felt at the beginning of the evening were long gone. What was she even mad about again? The fact that it actually took effort to remember meant this battle had at least distracted her.

"This is all I have left, so make it count." she yelled over to Adam. Being the forward, laid back girl that she is, she figured she'd go ahead and voice that the battle was almost over for her. Keeping her chin up, she threw the pokéball out onto the field with confidence. Once again, her Fletchinder burst from the ball and took to the air. Letting out cute little chirps as she flew, Nabooru twisted in a spiral rolling her body until she reached the middle of the battlefield. Ready to go, she hovered in the air and waiting for her directions.

"Don't hold back, Boo. Let's at least give him a challenge." she said, and added, "Razor Wind." Nabooru nodded, and immediately began flapping her wings faster. The air in the room began to spin, working from a slight breeze to a serious gust. Dakota had to cross her arms across her chest to keep the folds of her jacket from flapping around. She watched proudly as Nabooru continued to flap harder and faster, working up some energy. It would take a minute to build up the energy but her razor wind attack was the most impressive in Dakota's opinion.

Kai was defeated!
Dakota sent out Nabooru!
Nabooru whipped up a whirlwind!

The attack hit and the Cyndaquil was returned to his pokeball. Lakka had, of course, defeated the small fire type. Which left the Flechinder, another fire type but one much stronger than Lakka. He could withdraw her now and put Margarita back on the field. Or he could let Lakka keep battling even though her chances of winning were fairly slim. When the bird was called out, Adam decided to leave the choice up to his Piplup. "Lakka? You staying out or no?" The Piplup considered for a moment before giving her best imitation of a shrug. She knew how tired she was, she knew she was going to lose this fight, but she would keep fighting. Adam nodded and watched as the Flechinder began preparing its attack.

He had a couple of options here. A flying pokemon had the advantage of being airborne to have a better chance of escaping attacks. Bubble was a good option, it had the advantage of being able to be aimed upward to reach a flying opponent. But he had another option. One that would likely cause no small amount of frustration for his opponent if he managed to pull it off. "Use Whirlpool." Lakka blinked and glanced at the arena. There wasn't much water here, just a little bit where her bubbles had hit the Cyndaquil. But a little bit was enough. Through what Adam liked to refer to as 'pokemon physics', Lakka managed to call on some form of control over water and utilized that little puddle to create a swirling vortex of water that would, if it hit, continue to deal damage to the Flechinder while also trapping it on the battlefield for several turns. Not that that second effect was needed since this was his opponent's last pokemon but it was particularly useful when he didn't want his opponent to switch out their pokemon early in a battle.

Nope, looks good to me. No worries. Looking forward to seeing what other shenanigans these two will get up to in this thread, lol. =)

Dakota had to give the guy some credit. He knew what he was doing. It was as if they took Nabooru's attack and turned it against her, using it to their advantage. She was building up strength to perform a powerful attack and the penguin decided to add water to the mix. The whirlwind of air swallowed up the water and sent it up into the air, surrounding Nabooru. Bits of water nipped at the edges of her feathers, trapping her in the center. Her flying faltered but she managed to stay still, flapping in place. Dakota could just barely hear her chirp in pain between the whirling water and air.

Well, it was all or nothing now. There was no recalling Nabooru back. This was her last pokémon and her last chance in this battle. On the bright side, Nabooru seemed to be able to continue, and her attack was now charged up and ready. Dakota held her breath, confident Nabooru could pull it off but still nervous about the outcome. Nabooru was typically fast, but was she still feeling the effects of that sandstorm? Maybe. Would her accuracy be effected by the whirlpool? She was about to find out. Gripping the strap of her bag tightly with both fists, she watched nervously as Nabooru leaned forward.

Lowering her head, with one good flap of her wings she angled downward, sending her tail feathers into the air. Using all the energy she could muster, she beat at the air with her wings, sending it forcefully down at her opponent. The wind was fast and strong already, and with the added force from her wings it could cut through skin pretty easily. As if sending punches through the air, she alternated wings and sent several razor-sharp gusts down towards the penguin. Dakota could see the wind now that molecules of water had mixed with it, and it looked almost as if Nabooru was throwing knives made of air.

Nabooru became trapped in the vortex!
Nabooru used Razor Wind!
