IC: “Well, he certainly wasn’t overjoyed that I decided to talk to him, but I guess what really matters is he didn’t decide to try and send us to the moon or something,” Saundra said after Mewtwo took off. I couldn't help but wonder if she was actually talking to me, to her Pokemon, or if she was maybe just thinking out loud. I figured it was just best if I didn't say anything in response. She then pulled out her Absol's Pokeball, and sent it out. I guess she wanted to wait for Mewtwo to be gone, so that a conflict wouldn't have ended up starting. Don't know how it would have though, unless her Absol made the first move, since Mewtwo knew mine was right here.
“I think we’ll go for it. What do you say, girl? Up for a battle?” Saundra asked her Absol, as she patted it on its horn. It quickly took a battle stance by leaping to its paws, like it was really looking forward to the battle at hand. This was a smart choice, seeing as how, if I remembered right mind you, Scizor had gone through two battles, and Venomoth went through one. This meant that Saundra had one more Pokemon with a type advantage she hadn't used yet, and that just so happened to be her beloved Absol. Can't forget about its ability too, Super Luck, which made critical hits land more easily, and more often. So basically any move she used could have the potential to do double the damage. While this was handy, it could also backfire later on. She would need to be careful as the battle goes on.
“All right! Let’s kick this off with a Faint Attack, and while you’re at it, toss in a Thunder Wave!” Saundra commanded, as she took a couple of steps back so that these two Pokemon had some more room for their battle. She didn't appear like she wanted to pull any punches. She was going to instantly shoot for a status so that Beheeyem would be slower, possibly not have a chance to attack, and the part that she cared about, it would be easier to capture once it came time to throw a ball. Well I couldn't really argue with her logic, since it seemed pretty flawless so far.
First up was Faint Attack. The user would generally drop their guard, and walk towards the foe as though they weren't going to do anything. But then as they got close enough to the foe, they would throw a sucker punch. This punch would be thrown so close that there was no chance of it missing, short of the opposing Pokemon using Protect. Of course though it seemed Saundra's Absol was slightly different in using this attack. By that I meant that it appeared as though she intended to combine the two moves she was told to use, and fire them both at about the same time.
Absol took a jump, and landed on Beheeyem's shadow, before it vanished. Of course it wasn't really gone, it was just using its energy to conceal itself. When it reappeared in front of Beheeyem its horn appeared as though it had been filled with electricity, and an orb of energy showed up in front of it. While Absol was hidden it clearly charged up its Thunder Wave, unbeknownst to its foe. It hit Beheeyem, and before the energy even had a chance to spread through its body, Absol threw its punch and knocked it into the ground.
It slowly got back up, though now you could see that the paralysis took no time in spreading throughout it. Though this did technically put the Psychic-type at a disadvantage, it also seemed to give it an idea. It charged up its only sphere of electricity in front of itself, and released a powerful blast of energy from it. Beheeyem was using Thunderbolt, the most commonly seen Electric-type move, and one that could cause a par. Fortunately for Absol it was able to avoid part of the attack, and only get its back legs clipped by it. But this was still enough to cause it to get down, and try to shake the pain off. Since she already took care of a status, I had to wonder what Saundra would do from here on out.
