OOC: It has to be if I want to come close to reaching the MCR thing. It's hard not to be repetitive and actually make a decent post. I'll have to stall with this battle as much as possible xD. Also, I want a male one.
IC: I watched the elegant sea snake perform her moves. If it was one thing she was good at, it was definitely showing off her beauty and it definitely showed off with the moves she preformed.
I watched as the eerie purple ball get launched at the Relicanth, circling it a few times and I thought to myself that the first part of the plan had worked. It wasn’t long until I found out otherwise. I was going to find another way to distract it.
"Oooooh, it's got an anti-status Nature," Chainy commented. I sighed. It was a minor setback, but nothing we couldn’t manage. What really amazed me was that even though the attack didn’t work as planned, Seaspray didn’t stop to fix it. Instead, she continued on with the rest of the plan, which is what I liked about her; always wise and dependable. That was going to come in handy, I was sure of it. She dove into the water and began creating the vortex, which to my surprised worked better than I thought. The Relicanth spun around in circles several times, trying to escape, but it was all in pointless. I knew Seaspray wouldn’t let him escape. Now the last part of the play was coming into effect as she blew her icy cold breath into the whirlpool, freezing parts up. The Relicanth, as I had envisioned, got pelted by shards of ice which slowed it down. This would make it easier for Seaspray to get around it and hopefully, push if onto land.
Now the Relicanth did something I had wanted it to do, fight back. Since it couldn’t move much, the ancient Pokémon decided to use an ancient attack. Several rocks on the ground turned blue as they lifted off the ground magically. Relicanth was using a move that was as ancient as it was, Ancient Power. The rocks arranged themselves around Seaspray, trapping her in. I saw two options here. One was the she could dive back underwater and break off the attack in attempt to try a different approach, or two, take the hit.
Seaspray had something called Mirror Coat. When she used Mirror Coat, a blue energy-shield would engulf the sea serpent which would reflect all special attacks, like Ancient Power. This would throw back the Ancient Power attack and double its power hitting the Relicanth twice as hard. It probably wouldn’t do much though since the Pokémon was also Rock like the attack which would make it pointless. So I guess I didn’t have a choice but to break off the attack and find another way to get it onto land. Otherwise, even though it might be a long while away, it would be harder to capture in the water.
I thought for a few seconds of what I could actually do to hit the Relicanth some more, but only doing minimal damage. Most of Seaspray’s moves were strong. She could bring the power of her attack down, but that could be risky, especially since we don’t know how much the Relicanth can take after being asleep for so long. It might be able to take a log since it is fully rested, but it was still going to be risky. I knew the first step was to get Seaspray out of there. I didn’t want her to get hurt because I failed to call out orders to her. That would make me feel horrible, especially since I had to watch it all.
Then, an idea came into my head. If a light bulb were over my head, it would be shining bright. I could get Seaspray to use Waterfall. Then she could use Attract to lure the ancient rock-fish Pokémon closer to her. When it got closer, she would smack it with her Aqua Tail attack. Before anything though, I had to check if this was a male Relicanth, or a female one. If it was a female one then I would have to come up with yet another plan. I looked closer and saw that it had large cheek bones. I knew from some research I did before coming here that male Relicanth had larger cheek bones than the female. I had never seen a female Relicanth so I wasn't sure if this was considered large or not, but I guessed that it was, therefore making it a male.
I tried to quickly picture all of this in my head. Seaspray was already onto of the vortex, and on top of the Relicanth, which is what gave me the idea. Her eyes would glow a sky blue color as she control the water, making the water with the ice shards crash down on the Relicanth would hopefully make it drop its attack just long enough for Seaspray to dive back into the water. She would then resurface, looking more beautiful, as if that was even possible. She would blow a heart shaped kiss at the Relicanth. If it hit the ancient Pokémon, I knew it would be infatuated with the sea serpent. An old ancient Pokémon like Relicanth would surely fall for a younger, beautiful Milotic, at least I thought so. If he did get struck by the kiss, he would more than likely come closer and closer to Seaspray to admire her beauty. While he approached her, her red and blue plated tail would glow light blue as it spun in the water, creating a a spiral of water around it. When he got close enough, she would flip around and hit the rock-scaled fish she would strike him hard with it.
“Seaspray, bring the vortex down with Waterfall!” I called out, hoping I was not too late. If I was too late, our plan might not work out as I had envisioned it. “Then use Attract to lure him near you, then, if you can, smack it hard with your tail onto the land. I knew that she could perform this small combo, but if it would work was another story. I also knew that this attack wouldn’t do much on the Relicanth, but I didn’t care, I just wanted to get it on land. Maybe then I’d have an even better chance at capturing it.
Seaspray nodded. Her gorgeous red eyes quickly changed blue as she was about to bring down the spinning vortex with sharp ice shards down. I hoped it worked because if not, I was going to have to come up with a whole new strategy, which wasn’t a problem, but I didn’t want to risk losing this rare Pokémon.
