    Default Best Battle Fanfic Contest Entry Thread

    If you're not familiar with the 12 Days of Bulbagarden contest, please read this article before continuing.

    In the Best Battle Fanfic Contest, writers should create a 3-vs.-3 Pokémon battle with one of the trainers being the author battling with his or her three favorite Pokémon. The opponent and his or her Pokémon can be anyone of the author's choosing, and the author may write from either first- or third-person perspective. Again, the judges will choose three winners based on the creativity expressed in the battles they describe.

    Fanfic entries should be between 1,000-2,000 words and be posted in their entirety in this thread.

    Fanfics must be created exclusively for these contests, and anyone caught plagiarizing will be disqualified and banned from the forums for two weeks.

    The last day to enter is Dec. 23. Judges will pick the winners on Dec. 25. We'll announce the prizes sometime soon.

    Does that mean we can make up an opponent? Or do we have to use a canon character? Or is either fine?

    Can this just be any old battle? It doesn't have to be Christmas themed like the art one, right?

    Yes, you can make up the opponent. It can be your bratty brother or your teacher or Harley or Maxie or Cynthia or Hazel or anyone.

    The battle doesn't have to have any theme.

    And as a side note, if you suspect someone of plagiarism, REPORT IT. Provide examples of what you think they took from (it doesn't have to be your own work) or we'll have no way of knowing. If you don't report it, you can't blame the judges if we don't pick up on it--we can't read everything.

    Default One Step Closer

    All right, I've finished my battle fic and read over to check for any and all imperfections. Since it said to post it on 'this thread', I'm going to assume I'm posting it in the right place. I think I did a fair job in terms of creativity, description, grammar, punctuation, and type-effectiveness. This fanfic was to the best of my abilities in terms of such things.

    I tried to develop character while writing this fanfiction, but it's pretty hard to do so when limited to 2,000 words. The rival is an actual rival in my actual fanfic, as well as the Pokémon being actual Pokémon in my fanfic belonging to the hero. I hope you enjoy! And I look forward to seeing the winner, and learning something from them as well.

    Also, am I allowed to participate in the fanfic contest as well?

    --

    Title: One Step Closer

    Word Count: 2,000 words, exactly.

    Battle: Hero - Nareta. Rival - Zakura (always mistaken as Sakura by Nareta). 3 vs. 3, as desired.

    Pokémon: Nareta - (Battled with) Chatot, Hypno, Gible (Mentioned) Raichu, Drifblim, Mime Jr. Zakura - (Battled with) Azumarill, Delibird, Venusaur.

    Brief Summary: Will Nareta be able to beat her newest rival, Zakura? If Nareta loses, what will she do? How would she win? Read and find out what happens!

    One Step Closer


    I stared down my rival who had just challenged me to a battle. She had something against me. Something, but I didn't know what it was. Perhaps it was the way I always forgot her name, getting it mixed up with something similar. Maybe it was the fact that I had beaten her in my last battle, a contest battle. Both of us enjoyed being trainers, but we loved being coordinators as well. Seeing her in contests, I could get a feel of her battle style; however, do we all judge battle styles on looks? No, we see them first hand.

    I readily grabbed one of the Poké Balls in the pocket of my black jeans. My skin-tight, green undershirt was covered in sweat under the arms. Luckily, my very light blue jacket was able to cover any stains I may not want my rival to see. However, the sweat on my brow underneath my light brown, almost chestnut, hair was clearly visible.

    "If you're ready, Sakura, I'm ready," I said to her, just loud enough for her to hear so I didn't strain my voice.
    "It's Zakura!" She yelled angrily, grabbing a Poké Ball from her golden belt against blue capri pants. I decided to throw out my Pokémon first to taunt her. It was as if I were saying that it didn't matter what Pokémon she used against me. I knew I'd win no matter what. The first Pokémon thrown out was Chatot, my trusty bird Pokémon.

    "I'll use Azumarill!" Zakura tossed out her Poké Ball; her rabbit-like Pokémon jumped out. The battle was about to begin. No referee in sight for miles. We began calling out our attacks.

    "Azumarill, use Ice Beam!" I knew Zakura would do that, since ice was four times as powerful as it should be.
    "Chatot, use Aerial Ace!" I commanded. Chatot flew right toward the Ice Beam. She used her beak during her flight to slam into the Ice Beam and knock it away. I was always the type to take chances, make mistakes, and then not learn from them.

    "Dodge it!" Zakura yelled, saying an overused phrase that was not in my vocabulary. Azumarill jumped into the air and awaited the next command. Brushing her dirty blonde hair out of her eyes, she gave Azumarill another command. One I was all too familiar with.

    "Good job, now use Rollout!" Azumarill curled herself into a ball and began to roll at my Chatot.
    "Chatot, get in there with Peck!" I said, knowing my Chatot would do just that. Chatot, trusting me every step of the way, went straight in with Peck. Unfortunately, the much heavier Pokémon was victorious, knocking down my Chatot. Ruffling her feathers, Chatot shot me a dirty look before she stood back up. Azumarill came rolling right back at Chatot.

    "Chatot, use Hyper Voice!" Chatot opened her mouth and screeched loudly at Azumarill. This attack slowed Azumarill down to a degree, but didn't stop her. Again, Chatot was hit with Rollout. This move was doing massive damage to my Pokémon, and I knew I had to finish this before it was too late.

    "Chatot get out of there!" I yelled, but my Chatot was too weak to move. The third Rollout hit Chatot directly, knocking her unconscious. In an instant, Azumarill stopped her attack with her back facing me. She looked over her shoulder and gave Chatot a smirk.

    "You hung in there, Chatot. Thank you," I returned Chatot and got out my other Pokémon, "Hypno! Battle Phase!" My Hypno, a dictator in his own, jumped from my Poké Ball and landed directly on his feet. I used only one of my psychic Pokémon. The other option was my Mime Jr., but Hypno had more experience.

    "Azumarill, use Rollout!" Zakura shouted, pointing at my Hypno.
    "Hypno, use Assist!" I countered. Dodging wasn't my specialty. A good offense can serve as a great defense. Azumarill went for Hypno. Hypno stood there and flashed a white color. He put up his pendulum and a black ball flew out. Shadow Ball from my Drifblim, no doubt. The Shadow Ball collided with Azumarill, knocking her down and stopping Rollout.

    "Again! Use Assist!" I demanded Hypno. He gladly complied. In a stroke of luck, my Hypno used Thunder out his pendulum. This was a move from my trusty Raichu, the only Pokémon I kept out of the Poké Ball. She was small, but she certainly had good moves on her.

    Azumarill was hit with an onslaught of electricity, which immediately knocked her out cold.
    "Azumarill, return," Zakura recalled her exhausted Azumarill and grabbed another Ball, not missing a beat, "go, Delibird!" Delibird and Hypno didn't get along from their last meeting. Hypno didn't like Delibird for one of Delibird's moves.

    "Hypno, Hypnosis!" I yelled.
    "Delibird, use Present!" Zakura commanded Delibird, not giving my Hypno an inch. Delibird threw the red ball at Hypno and it exploded on impact. Unfortunately, it was a damage-dealing Present this time, and heavy damage-dealing one at that. Hypno seemed extremely hurt after the smoke cleared, but looked more determined.

    "Delibird, use Avalanche!" Delibird flew right over top of Hypno and opened his tail sack. This was the move. The move Hypno hated the most.

    "Hypno, use Assist!" Hypno used Assist at the oncoming wall of snow. It turned into Shadow Claw, but it wasn't enough to push the snow away. Hypno was hit with Avalanche.

    "Hypno!" I called, rushing over. I threw the snow off of him with my bare hands. The cold snow stung my frozen fingers, hitting every little nerve in my hands that it could, before I was able to get down to my Hypno. Hypno had enough and was too exhausted. He gave me a sad look as he shivered in cold.

    "I'm sorry, Hypno," I returned him. My last Pokémon was already up and I could fight Delibird with either my Raichu or a different Pokémon. The other Pokémon was weak to ice attacks, but I knew what Pokémon Zakura would use after Delibird.

    "All right, Gible, you're up! Battle Phase!" I tossed out Gible's Poké Ball. Gible jumped out of the Poké Ball and landed on his feet, throwing his arms into the air.

    "Delibird, use Ice Beam!" Delibird opened his mouth and sent out a fierce Ice Beam.
    "Gible use DragonBreath!" Gible came right back at Delibird with an equally intense DragonBreath attack. Both attacks collided, creating a massive explosion. I had to hold my arm over my face to avoid debris getting into my eye. Once the smoke cleared, both Pokémon were okay.

    "Gible, use Shadow Claw!" Gible jumped into the air and tried to use Shadow Claw.
    "Delibird, Ice Beam!" Delibird opened his beak and used Ice Beam before Gible had the chance to attack. Gible was hit with Ice Beam and was even flung back down to the ground by the force. Luckily, Gible was able to stand back up. Gible fell to his knee in pain.

    "Gible, use Draco Meteor!" Gible opened his mouth and shot out yellow balls of light, hitting Delibird straight on as Delibird was left wide open after Ice Beam was used. Delibird was hit multiple times from the different meteors and fell straight to the ground. Instantly, Delibird was rendered unconscious.

    "Delibird, return," I knew which Pokémon was coming up next, "all right, Venusaur, show them what you got!" She threw out her Venusaur, her starter.

    "Gible, you know what to do. Use Fire Blast!" Gible opened his mouth wide and shot a Fire Blast at Venusaur.
    "Venusaur, use Vine Whip!" Venusaur was able to use his vines as a shield. Once the attack stopped, Venusaur slammed his vines into Gible's chest. Gible was flung backwards, but was able to flip himself over and land on his feet.

    "Venusaur, use Leech Seed!" Venusaur shot a seed from the flower on his back.
    "Gible, use Shadow Claw!" Gible's paw glowed black as he slammed his paw into the seed, breaking it and rendering it ineffective. Zakura growled at me, knowing she had to watch out for Gible's Fire Blast. However, her angry quickly turned to laughter once she noticed that Gible was nearing his breaking point. The Ice Beam from earlier caused way too much damage to Gible.

    "Venusaur, let's give this little punk what's coming to it. Razor Leaf!" Venusaur thrust his leaves forward, creating a Razor Leaf attack. Many sharp leaves flew at Gible, but I thought I had it covered.

    "Gible, use Fire Blast!" Gible opened his mouth wide and blew out. However, only a little bit of smoke came out of his mouth. Gible's eyes widened as the leaves collided with him. "Gible, quickly! Use Dig!" Gible was able to avoid the rest of the leaves by digging underground. Gible's Fire Blast was still a work-in-progress because Gible wasn't fully in control of his Fire Blast just yet.

    He quickly came up from underground, trying to knock Venusaur back. However, Venusaur jumped backwards, causing Gible to miss. I was starting to get nervous. My palms were sweaty and my heart was pounding in my chest, just like always. The rush of battling Pokémon was too great for some people, but I felt as if it were the rush of a lifetime. Even if I lost, I won in a way.

    "Venusaur, use Vine Whip to grab Gible!" Venusaur did so, wrapping Gible in his vines.
    "Gible, break free! Use Fire Blast!" Gible thrashed about and opened his mouth, trying to use Fire Blast. However, only a puff of smoke broke free from his throat. The vines around Gible tightened considerably, squeezing the energy right out of him. He panted, exhausted from the battle.

    "Venusaur, let's finish it with a SolarBeam!" Zakura smirked. Venusaur started to take in sunlight from the open field.

    "Gible!" I called. Gible's tightly closed eyes shot open. He shouted out his name and started to glow a bright white color. I gasped, knowing that today was the day. Today was the day that Gible did what he's dreamed of doing for as long as I've had him on my team. My Pokémon was, for the sake of his trainer, evolving. The vines around him grew tighter, but were soon torn away from him as his form began to take shape. Those large fins on his arms were responsible for getting him out of the vines and they were responsible for allowing him time to hang in the air. Finally, the form was complete. Gible had evolved into Gabite right before my eyes.

    "What!?" Zakura seemed just as surprised as, perhaps even more so, me.
    "Gabite! Use your Fire Blast!" I demanded, hoping that Fire Blast was able to work now. Gabite confidently opened his mouth and shot out a powerful Fire Blast. Venusaur took massive damage, but was still able to keep fighting.

    "Venusaur, use Frenzy Plant!" Venusaur's body glowed green as he stomped on the ground. Spiked vines flew from the earth and at Gabite.

    "Gabite, use Dig!" Gabite, unafraid of the vines, dug underground and came up right under Venusaur, knocking him off his feet. Venusaur was stuck on his back, flailing his legs as he tried to get to his feet.

    "Gabite, finish this! Fire Blast!" As I said that, Gabite knew what I wanted, already getting his Fire Blast ready. He took in a deep breath of air and shot a Fire Blast at Venusaur's stomach. Venusaur shouted out in pain before an explosion ensued. The explosion sent Venusaur backwards ten feet, knocking him back onto his stomach. He was finally out cold.

    Happily, I ran over to Gabite, embracing him in my arms.
    "You did it, Gabite, you evolved!" I congratulated him. I could see the happiness in his eyes as his dream of evolving came true after all our training. He knew it was only a matter of time before the form of Garchomp became his. He was one step closer.

    Here's my contribution. Hope you enjoy.

    Title: How did this happen?
    Word Count: 1 997


    It’s strange, I suppose. I’ve been around Pokemon for as long as I can remember. My interest in them waxes and wanes as often as the phases of the moon, but that’s mainly because of the stresses in my life. You see, I’m reaching the age where many roaming trainers begin to settle down, giving up on their dreams of being the best to start a family, or get a productive job, or both.

    I really don’t know what to do with myself. The desire to travel hasn’t left me entirely, but I’m no great battler. I know that I don’t have a chance of becoming a League Champion, or a Top Coordinator; I just don’t have that sense of battle. But if I don’t travel, what else can I do? I can’t settle down and start a family. Sure there are one or two girls who seem quite keen on me, but I’m just not interested in a relationship right now. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever find that interest.

    With all this doubt in my future, is it any wonder I feel stressed? Is it any wonder I feel lost? I’ve been thinking so hard about what to do with my life recently that I can barely remember what happens from one day to the next. So that leads me to ask: how the hell did I end up registered in this tournament?

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The walk into the trainer’s box from the sidelines of the pitch seems to take an agonizingly long time to me, though I’m sure it can’t have taken me more than 10 seconds to get there after my name was called. I still don’t know how I ended up being entered in this stupid thing; I was all set to help my Dad out with a little gardening when my neighbour, Kelly, started ringing our doorbell, shouting that if I didn’t hurry I would be disqualified. When I opened the door to ask what I’d be disqualified from, she grabbed my arm and dragged me to this tournament. I really wish that she’d at least have let me change first; I can see the people in the stands pointing at me, and I can hear them laughing at my ensemble of muddy boots, torn jeans, and a patched shirt. She barely gave me enough time to grab my Poke Balls from the counter; I don’t even know who I’ve brought with me. I just hope that they aren’t empty.

    “Hey mate!” I hear a loud voice calling; it’s coming from the other end of the dirt battlefield, and I realize it’s coming from the guy who’s scheduled to be my opponent. “That’s a real nice get-up you got on there; you planning on digging a grave for your Pokemon once I’m through with them?” It’s then that I realize I have a trowel shoved through my belt.

    “I forgot that I entered,” I confess to him. “My neighbour dragged me here when I didn’t show up.” He snickers in response.

    “Your poor neighbour; I hope she wiped the mud off her dress once she let go of you.” I start feeling a cold pit of anger in my stomach. This kid has to be at least three years younger than me, if not more, and I doubt he even knows who Kelly is. If he did, he’d know she never wears dresses. But who is he to insult her? Kelly’s one of those girls who really like me, and she’s still my best friend, even if I don’t reciprocate her feelings.

    “Alright, that’s enough,” the referee calls from the sidelines. “This is the first match of the fourteenth annual Stig Valley exhibition Spring Tournament. Every match is a three-on-three battle; best two-out-of-three moves on to the next round.” He holds out two flags and then quickly raises them above his head with a shout of “begin!”

    “I choose you, Sunflora!” my opponent shouts, and a beautiful flower-like Pokemon appears. I can tell straight away that it’s been very well raised, and is in the prime of its battling abilities. I start to feel very nervous; I didn’t have much of a chance from the beginning, and I’ve got to go against this? I don’t even know what Pokemon I have on me! Cripes. I just reach, grab a Poke Ball at random, and hope for the best as I send it out.

    Oh, it’s Flareon. Well I guess that’s good; it’s a fire-type against a grass-type after all. I can’t help but worry though; my Flareon hasn’t had all that much battle experience, and that Sunflora looks tough.

    “I’ve never seen a weaker looking Flareon,” my opponent observes. “Geez, I thought this would be a challenge. Alright Sunflora, wrap it up in one hit: Sunny Day followed by SolarBeam.”

    Fantastic. So he’s going to use Sunny Day to make his SolarBeams form more quickly. Brilliant, just brilliant. It’s a powerful move at the best of times, and the fact that it’s a grass-type move doesn’t really matter all that much if more than one manage to connect. I guess dodging might be easier than trying to counter it.

    “Flareon!” I shout, “use Dig and go underground!” I start to squint as the sunlight gets blinding, and I can feel the heat of it too. My Flareon gives a little yip as she dives under the ground; just in time too, since the first SolarBeam blasts past where she was just standing. I’m really starting to hate this Sunny Day now though; the light is so bright that I didn’t even see that SolarBeam until the last moment; it would have hit me if my reflexes weren’t as good.

    Squinting and wishing I’d brought sunglasses, I suddenly hear a cry of pain from the other end of the field. I can’t even see what’s happening, so I can only guess that Flareon surfaced and hit Sunflora with all her might.

    “Okay Flareon!” I shout, “stay in close and use Fire Fang!” There’s a glimmering of flame that I’m barely able to make out in the blinding brilliance, and then a definite cry of pain from Sunflora. I’m starting to get excited; Sunflora’s been hit twice, and Flareon is still okay. Maybe I can win this first round.

    “Spin around and hit it with a SolarBeam!” my opponent shouts.

    “No way!” I shout, really getting into it now. “Flareon; Sunny Day may make their SolarBeam charge faster, but it makes your attacks way stronger! So use Lava Plume and blast it through your Charcoal!”

    “Your Flareon has a Charcoal?” my opponent screams in disbelief. I don’t have time to answer before Flareon unleashes her devastating attack. The effects of Sunny Day are starting to fade, and now I can see my little Flareon in all her glory; I’ve never seen her so determined. Her cream chest fur parts, revealing the small black stone pendant I bought for her. She closes her eyes in concentration, and her expression is so serene that the Sunflora doesn’t launch its attack. Silly; my Flareon begins to glow a deep red and a blast of pressurized energy roars from the Charcoal.

    Even I’m in awe; I’ve never seen it used like this before. The Lava Plume is all kinds of crimson shades, and I’ve never seen it interlock like that. My opponent really doesn’t have all that much choice; he recalls his beaten Sunflora, and I happily hug my Flareon before returning her too. That was the best battle I’ve ever seen her do, and she looks more than pleased with the result. Since I won this round, I guess it means that I have to choose next. It’s only fair, right?

    “I don’t know who you are,” I whisper. “Just please; do your best for me.” I throw the Poke Ball and am happy to see that it’s my Pidgeot. This should be a good match.

    At least I thought it would be, before my opponent chose a Rhyperior for his second Pokemon anyways. Goddammit, how experienced is this guy? I don’t even want to know how long it took him to raise a Pokemon as powerful as that; I’m way out of my league with this guy. Maybe my first win was just a fluke? No, I earned that win. Or Flareon did at least; I couldn’t see most of it. Oh well; I’m determined to give it my all, even if it is in vain.

    “Pidgeot, use Quick Attack!” I shout, and my Pokemon speeds off at a blinding rate; it’s hit the Rhyperior before my opponent can even issue a counter-attack. Not that it matters; Pidgeot just bounced off.

    “Rhyperior, hit it with Stone Edge!” he shouts, and Pidgeot and I both cringe as we wait for the attack. It doesn’t come. The Rhyperior just stands there, scratching at its belly with an irritated look. I start to smile; his Pokemon won’t obey him. Maybe I have a chance after all.

    “Okay Pidgeot, try a Steel Wing!” I shout, and the attack hits almost instantly. This time it definitely did something; it even knocked the Rhyperior a few steps backwards. It looks seriously pissed now though.

    “Rhyperior, knock it down with Hammer Arm!” my opponent shouts, but I watch in horror as the Rhyperior chooses to grab Pidgeot by the wings instead. It jumps into the air, tucks Pidgeot against its belly, and hits the ground with a jarring impact that knocks me off my feet and even splits the earth. There’s no way Pidgeot can keep going after that; as the Rhyperior rolls off my flattened bird, I recall it with a whispered word of thanks.

    Now we’re at one victory apiece, and it’s time to see who wins. At least my opponent isn’t taunting me anymore; it’s obvious to everyone his Rhyperior isn’t trained, and that’s more than enough ammunition should he choose to start up the unpleasantries again.

    We both send our Pokemon out at the same time, and as far as I can tell it’s a close matchup: my Espeon against his Marowak. “This should be good,” I mutter.

    “It’ll be fast,” he shouts, somehow overhearing. “Marowak, use your Bone Club on the ground!” I don’t know what he has planned, but it can’t be good. Sure enough, it isn’t. The ground begins to shake under the force of the blows, and the cracks caused by the Rhyperior’s impact are lengthening and growing wider.

    “Espeon, run away!” I shout; just in time too. One of the cracks shoots between Espeon’s feet and rips apart the ground; she only just manages to leap to the side. “Fight from a distance; use Psychic!” I shout.

    “Bonemerang!” my opponent shouts, and the flying club hits Espeon before she can take control of Marowak’s body. I can barely restrain a cry as she flies backwards before being hit a second time by the Bonemerang’s return path to Marowak.

    “No,” I gasp as she collapses. “No, Espeon! Get up and use Psychic, please!”

    “Bonemerang again!” The club flies and Espeon struggles to her feet; I close my eyes, ready for the impact that doesn’t come. Confused, I open my eyes and realize that Espeon has used Psychic to catch the club in mid-air, and is currently using it to beat the hell out of the Marowak. The Marowak may have been fast, but it wasn’t strong; it takes only a few hits before catching the club, but then collapses with a groan.

    I would be ecstatic about it if it wasn’t for the fact that Marowak had caught the club because Espeon had fallen to the ground first, unable to keep going. With a sigh I recall my Espeon and press her Poke Ball to my lips in thanks.

    I may have lost, but that’s okay. It was the most fun I’d had in a long time.

    I only hope that Kelly isn’t too upset.

    Default An Unexpected Tragedy befalls a headstrong trainer

    It was a bright summers day and the sun was blazing overhead, on the battlefield dust was slowly decending onto the ground as the remnants of a hyperbeam collided with a statue. Crimson a red headed , beautiful girl, was edging her Tentacruel on , " Use Water Pulse", crimson shouted and a ring of water shot from the gigantic water pokemon and blasted the dragonite away, the Unfortunate dragonite, despite its rumored strength and its defense against water type attacks, struggled to get on its feet, after three seconds of bated breath the dragonite collaped to the ground, There was a roar of joy from crimson as she ran to congratulate her tentacruel. The loser trainer stepped up to crimson and shook her hand and congratulated her on her amazing battle skills. "Thanks Lapis", jeered crimson, Lapis a strong minded, blonde haired youth smiled and walked off down the path. " Another Victory", " Thats the Fifth the day" cried crimson, "We are on a roll"

    It was miday and crimson was heading towards the pokemon center to heal her pokemon, suddenly a mysterious trainer exited the center and knocked crimson to the floor, the mysterious trainer gave a mocking "humph" and went on his way. Crimson, her face turning red and violently clashing with her hair , shouted to the stranger, he turned around and stood waiting, Crimson being a headstrong youth demanded that they battle. The stranger sniggered and shouted back " Okay ! meet me in the the "shady grove" at five" and after that he stalked away into the shadow of the trees that leered down on the small town of "Bridgedale". Crimson stil seething from being knocked down entered teh pokemon center and with force dwmanded to see Nurse Joy. The Nurse was taken aback at her tone and reluctantly took her pokemon to be healed.

    Crimson began to think about her challenge at five and she began to think up strategies. "Hmmmmmmphh should I use my Tentacruel in this match again" , "I Dont want to look foolish with using tired pokemon", stricken with a thought crimson moved towards the T.V phone to call Professor Brookdale the local authority on pokemon strategy and the international celebrity who came up with the thoery of pokemon evolution concerning degrees of happiness at certain periods of time in the day. It took a couple of seconds for the Professor to answer, he answered in a cheery tone, " Ahhh Crimson its so good to see you, What can I do for you?", " I need to see all my pokemon up on teh screen Professor" replied crimson and on the screen there appeared a list of all of Crimsons pokemon, there was around fifty pokemon on the list and a frown came upon Crimson's head, " This isn't going to be easy" , she thought to herself.

    "What would be the best strategy" thought Crimson, "Should I use the types of the three starters; Fire,Water and Grass. She then thought what pokemon have the least type advantages, Instantly Magneton came to her mind and she kept that thought in her mind. She found this task very daunting and after half an hour of looking through all her pokemon she decided to pick: Magneton, Blastoise, Aerodactyl, Meganium, Arcanine and Alakazam. she asked the professor to hold on for a minute as she went to collect her now healed pokemon, she came back to the Professor and she asked to swap the pokemon she had for the ones she wanted, As Tentacruel, Raichu, Lickitung, Bastiodon, Crobat and Grumpig were sent over Crimsons chosen pokemon were sent over to her.

    After an hour of thinking up strategies , Crimson suddenly looked up in horror at the clock but it was only Half four, she thought "I better make my way to the "shady groves" then and check out the playing field", "Some strategy might materialize in my head then". After about fifteen minutes of mindless wandering crimson found herself walking out to a big patch of earth that had rocks protruding like daggers from the ground. For some reason a flash of doubt came over her as she stood waiting for her mysterious opponent. the wind started to pick up as the mysterious trainer appeared on the battlefield. The trainer introduced himself as "Lord Henry Wotton the greatest pokemon trainer to ever have travelled the world", Crimson thought he was a bit big headed and snorted at his introduction. Lord Henry much taller than crimson seemed to look down upon her even from the other side of the battlefield and he said in a dangerious voice, " Little girl I would watch your mouth If I were you, I have competed in every major tournement known to man and I have came first in everyone, I have made even the strongest trainers cry with my superior tactics, I even made a trainer kill themselves after I took both of his pokemon down with one watergun in front of his friends and family, " HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA", " Little girl you have no chance against me, you may aswell save yourself from embarrasment and walk away just know, I watched your little battle earlier with that incompetent fool and his pathetic dragonite"

    "Anyway enough talking I would rather get this battle over with quickly", Crimson looking a little scared now shouted back " Okay then !, what are teh rules" he replied with a sneer " we use only 3 pokemon each , the first battle will be a double battle and then a one on one battle, there will be no items allowed, and that is it" he finished off his speech with a snide remark, " think you can handle that little girl", she shouted angrily back, "Hell Yes".

    the mysterious trainer called out his first two pokemon , an intimidatingly powerful Metagross and a very powerful looking feraligatr. Both pokemon came out with a roar that sent shock waves around the field. Crimson snorted and sent out her Magneton and Arcanine, Magneton came out with a screech and Arcanine with a deafining roar. "Let the battle commence" shouted Lord Henry. Lord Henry gave a scream signalling his pokemon to advance on Crimsons, Crimson retalliated with a clever offensive. She told her magneton to use Thunder , this stopped feraligatrs advance but metagross kept on going like an unmoveable tank. Crimson then sent her Arcanine in with a fire blast that incinerated everything in its path, the move seemed to have very little effect on the metagross who kept on moving towards arcanine. Suddenly out of the dust strewn air feraligatr burst into the scene and sent a beam of water towards arcanine, arcanine just dodged the attack but fell into the line of fire of metagross. From the roaring of the pokemon , there was a shout that signalled Metagross to use earthquake. The ground under feraligatr and arcanine rumbled and cracked, arcanine was thrown to the side and seemed to be kocked out, Feraligatr seized this chance to aim another hydro pump at arcanine but at the last moment magneton came sky-rocketing from the air and sent a powerful bolt of electricity through Feraligatr, the force of the move illuminated the battle field and revealed a scarred earth and a shocked looking Lord Henry. Feraligatr had fainted and was returned to its ball. Metagross however was still on the move towards the struggling aranine. Crimson was scared her arcanine could be seriously hurt. Lord Henry sent orders to metagross, telling it to use psychic, Arcanine was lifted from the ground and thrown to the other side at Lord Henry's feet. Lord Henry snickered and said "pathetic pokemon and its supposed to be legendary, HAHAHAHAHAHAH", Crimson felt sorrow for her arcanine and encouraged it to get up, Magneton stepped in and sent a short wave of electricity towards metagross, It had been paralysed, but for how long. Magneton seized this oppurtunity and used a thunderbolt. The metagross recovering from paralysis was shocked by the attack and it threw it off course. It became dazed and was unable to see. Crimson then thought that instead of all out attacks she can weaken its abilities, She then told her Magneton to use flash, again the battlefield was illuminated and the broken earth was revealed alongside a concerned looking Lord Henry. Lord Henry shouted to his Metagross, "Use recover", in retalliation Crimson ordered an other Flash attack. By this time arcanine had got to its feet and Crimson urged it to use Flamethrower, the line of flames hit metagross directly in the face making it recoil in agony. Lord Henry surprised by the turn of events knew he was not going to win this battle. He thought " I may aswell take down one of his pokemon at least". As Crimson ordered her arcanine to use crunch and her magneton to use thunderbolt, Lord Henry shouted to his Metagross , "METAGROSS USE EXPLOSION" metagross looked up and nodded, suddenly its whole body glowed and then an enormous explosion ensued throwing arcanine into the wall and knocking it out. Magneton was hit but due to its steel defense it wasn't badly hurt. Crimson gave a yell of delight and Lord henry replied by saying " You havent witnessed the true power of my pokemon, that was just beginners luck"

    After the explosion subsided the field looked barren and very smooth. then with a frightening roar Lord Henry shouted " GO AGGRON" and the gigantic titan Aggron appeared. What scared Crimson was that it came out of the ball silently and it was still silent, watching Crimson as if calculating her every move. Crimson gulped and with a brave face she called forth her Alakazam. Alakazam came out with a cofident " Alla-Ka-ZAM".

    "Who ever wins this battel will be the victor" called Lord Henry from the side of his Aggron. Suddenly Lord Henry shouted "AGGRON USE DIG !", and aggron disappeared underground, Alakazam stood patiently awaiting instructions. After a couple of seconds Crimson shouted "ALAKAZAM USE TELEPORT" , fortunately alakazam disappeared and appeared on the other side of the field just as Aggrons powerful head emerged from the ground. Crimson then ordered alakazam to use Ice punch on Aggron. Aggron had barely lifted itself from the ground when Alakazam's frozen fist made contact with aggron, aggron recoiled with a disgruntled roar. Lord Henry cursed and instructed his aggron to use earthquake. The ground rumbled, there was no were for alakazam to teleport to. And Crimson knew this. the groud beneath alakazam collapsed and it sent alakazam flying, the psychic master got to its feet and calmly stood waiting. Crimson ordered a future sight attack in which alakazam foresaw an attack, during this time Lord Henry had oredered his Aggron to use rock slide and a barrage of rocks hit alakazam. Alakazam was thrown into a tree which shattered. Crimson was getting nervous, her alakazam was weakened, if another earthquake were used it would surely finish alakazam off. Crimson then remebered what metagross had done earlier and she shouted to Alakazam "Use Recover !" alakazam did as instructed and it came back onto the field looking strong as ever . Crimson looking slightly happier asked alakazam to use another ice punch , this time alakazams fist struck aggrons belly and froze it, Aggron looking like a large ice cube and Lord Hnery looking Petrified, Crimson ordered alakazam to use fire punch, this move melted the ice but sent aggron flying into the air, Whilst still in the air Alakazam at the council of Crimson used thunder which struck aggron right in the middle sending it into the ground and leaving a huge crater. Again alakazam was ordered to use thunder and a beam of lightning came from the sky, however Lord Henry was quick on the mark and told aggron to use protect. a large circle of protective force engulfed aggron and the thunder move richoeted and hit the ground. Aggron then suddenly got up and used take down, unfortunately Crimson was not so quick and her alakazam was sent flying again. Alakazam took longer to get up and it looked very weak, Aggron then charged at alakazam again but missed as alakazam with surprising speed dodged the attack, Aggron with a deafening crash , collided with a huge bolder. Crimson burst out laughing as she noticed that aggron had its horns stuck in the bolder, this infuriated Lord Henry and he cursed again. Crimson told Alakazam to use his psychic powers to lift lots of boulders and send them pelting towards aggron. Aggron was roaring in rage and agony. Alakazam used another ice punch on aggron which dealt great damage, shown by aggron stumbling and falling to the ground. Crimson then triumphantly cheered and ordered alakazam to execute a psycho-cut move, This flung aggron down at its masters feet with a big red scorch mark. Aggron tried to get up and eventually did. Crimson just stood there smiling as two balls of light came speeding at either side of aggron and crashed into it sending it to crimsons feet. the aggron tried to get up but fainted.

    Crimson cheered and ran to hug her alakazam. Lord Henry stood devastated as he looked at his aggron lying on the ground. He went over to it and said in a holllow voice " You fought well my friend, take a rest" and aggron returned to its ball.

    Lord Henry walked up to Crimson and extended his hand, " That truely was an excellent battle and I congratulate you on your victory, you fought well and proved your worth as a trainer", Crimson with tears in her eyes replied " thank you and you were an excellent battler yourself and I hope our battle has tought you something about being big-headed", Lord Henry laughed adn said " I will never underestimate a trainer again, that I can promise".


    THE END


    Have a merry Christmas everyone

    I'm currently writing another fanfic with battle scenes in it.

    Can I post one of the scenes here and again within the full fic in another thread?

    I've two questions, both similar.
    1. Let's say Trainer A fights Trainer B. Can Trainer A defeat Trainer B with one Poke, even though they both have three on them at the time?

    2. Let's say our friend Trainer A has 6 Pokemon. Can he fight Trainer B who only has 3, while Trainer A only uses three?

    EP: To answer your Qs in my own honest opinion, I feel that if A defeats B with one poke, then so long as your 3 faves appear on the side of A or B, it won't matter. And yeah, the same applies above, as long as the three faves are used, it's good.

    FishyFool isn't in charge of the contest, I hope you realize. I'll have to check though (I'm a judge but I'm not in charge).

    Please wait for some official word.
