’’Stay up on the bank and use rock slide,’’ Sasuke yelled, noting all the rocks which were now littered around the swamp, ’’then follow up with rock tomb.’’ Enma nodded and roared again. ’’Then dive off the bank and give it a karate chop,’’ Sasuke added for good measure, then wiped a splodge of mud off Ino’s face with his sleeve, who was still snivelling in his arms. Enma sprinted forwards and leapt high into the air. He reached out a fist and planted it on the floor as he landed on his side, and swept his leg round as he did so, kicking a barrage of rocks off the bank. Kabutops lifted it’s scythes to try and deflect the bombardment, but the sheer quantity of rocks meant that many cracked into their target, and it cried out in pain as they did so.
Remembering to use rock tomb Enma began to pick up rocks and hurl them at Kabutops, but it still possessed lightning quick agility and managed to dodge them quite easily, leaving most of them to sink harmlessly into the sludge. Enma wasn’t done yet though, he roared as he picked up a large rock and tossed it into the air. As it dropped he jumped up and clenched his fists together, then summoned up his strength and smashed it at Kabutops. It let out an otherworldly piercing cry as the huge rock crashed into it’s torso, sending it sprawling backwards into the mud. Sasuke’s Primeape then sprinted forwards and launched himself off the swamp bank, raising his fist as he did so, then smashed it down onto Kabutops’ head with a sickening crack. The shellfish pokemon screeched and swiped out with it’s scythe, knocking Enma off him and into the muddy water.
Both pokemon jumped up onto their feet and faced each other, panting heavily. Blood was still pouring freely from Enma’s wound, which was turning his fur into a matted red mess. There was a large open crack on Kabutops’ head through which Sasuke could see soft pink tissue, and it was screeching in pain. It cried out and began to swing it’s scythes wildly, sending our a barrage of slashes in every direction. Most missed their target completely, and Sasuke had to dive out of the way to avoid being hit by one. Ino flew up into the air as Sasuke skidded along the muddy ground, but landed safely on his belly, briefly knocking the wind out of him. He got up onto his feet and placed Ino back onto his shoulder, and yelled out his next, and hopefully last, commands. ”Enma you need to finish this off now,” he shouted through the rain, knowing that his Primeape’s wound needed to be treated. He wouldn’t be able to leave his pokemon out there much longer in that state, no matter how adamant he was to battle on. ’’Use rage then fury swipes, then give Kabutops a thunder punch to the head.’’ He knew that aiming for the crack on Kabutops head was almost inhumane but the battle was no playfight, and he couldn’t show any weakness. If Kabutops was willing to battle on and hurt him and his pokemon then he needed to be ruthless. He stood back as Enma began to roar and pound his chest with his large fists, and began his assault.
