OOC: Now that was a very good post :D
"Look out!" Maya gasped as the Meowth ran towards Lita. Lita took the easiest escape option: she ran up a tree.
The Meowth's Night Slash attack hit the tree, gouging deep scratches into the wood. The Meowth then doubled over and panted, temporarily overcome by the effort of attacking. Lita nimbly ran down the tree and placed herself between the Meowth and her Trainer.
Maya then made an unusual choice: she gave the choice of attack to her Pokemon. Most Trainers never did this: they simply commanded their Pokemon to attack, and the most they would do is accept advice from them once in a while. But here was a Trainer who actually shared the responsibility of battling with her Pokemon.
The little Pichu looked at the Meowth, trying to decide whether to attack or not. Suddenly, it shot forward towards the Meowth. Perhaps a remnant of the Meowth's Taunt had remained, and perhaps not.
When Lita reached the Meowth, she smacked the cream coloured cat with her tail. Seeing a Pichu use physical attacks was rare, so my guess was that she was still, at least partially, under the control of the Meowth's Taunt.
Before Lita could do more damage, though, the Meowth released a beam-like swipe of dark energy, pushing Lita back towards her Trainer. I took a quick look at Lita through my eyepiece - despite the Meowth's raised Sp.Atk, the Night Slash hadn't done much damage.
