Jelly: Deciding to go with a more defensive strategy, Aron Hardens himself, his metallic body glowing white for a moment before it fades, leaving his exoskeleton harder and tougher than normal. Rattata eyes him warily, it’s little mind turning over as it tries to figure out a way past Aron’s increased defences. This is one clever little rodent however, and it isn’t about to let a tough armor-plated foe get the better of it. Rattata lunges for Aron, twisting its body in mid-air and striking Aron, once again, across his eyes, the one place where his hardened shell cannot protect him. Aron’s eyes begin watering profusely, the stinging sensation blinding him. Rapidly blinking away the tears, he tries to hone in on Rattata’s location but finds himself Tail Whipped by the pesky little critter once more before he can focus. Rather than tiring, Rattata appears to be enjoying this little game it has going, and you could swear it’s smirking at you which makes you only more determined to defeat it. Realising this defensive strategy isn’t exactly helping him, Aron then attempts to perform a Fury Cutter, lashing out in the direction he last felt Rattata attack, and through sheer luck gets in two good slashes for moderate damage to the little rat before Rattata retaliates with Quick Attack, knocking Aron off-balance and so ending his assault. Incensed, Aron retaliates with Mud-slap, but with this being such an arid area there is no available mud for him to use and so instead kicks up as much dirt and loose gravel as he can, letting it fly in Rattata’s general direction. Rattata takes a faceful of dirt and now finds its own eyes watering and it begins rubbing at its eyes, trying to get rid of the foreign material causing them to sting. What would you like to do now?
