Heeeey anyone that cares. I decided to write something new for practice. This time, it's gonna be nothing else than a full 6 on 6 Pokemon battle! It's gonna be kinda long and divided in 2 parts(this is part 1), but I hope anyone that reads it enjoys it!
-The Last Meeting-
Two young men stood at distance from each other, their eyes locked and unmoving. They found themselves inside a school build for teaching new trainers about the basics, although both of them were anything but beginners, having years of experience behind their belts. Indeed, they were in that place specifically for giving the new trainers a demostration of what a high level Pokemon battle was all about. It was by no mere coincidence that those 2 specific trainers were picked for this, however.
At the left side of the battlefield made for Pokemon battles, one of the two trainers unwrapped a red scarf from his left arm and put it around his neck and lower face, with everything from the nose and above still visible, although his eyes were partially covered by his long brown hair with a ponytail that reached down his waist behind him. Close inspectation showed that he wore a set of clothes consisting of red boots, black jeans, a white shirt and a open dark blue jacket. How much of the leg his boots covered was unknown due to it being covered by his pants, but it was clearly made for walking on rough enviroments, and it was mostly destroyed due to usage, showing he had a lot of traveling experience backing him up.
On the right side of the battlefield, the other trainer wore more casual clothing in the form of simple black shoes, brown leather pants and a blue shirt with short sleeves. It was a set of clothes used for going out in the street or being at home as rather than traveling. His blonde hair was cut somewhat short, not touching the back of his neck nor going pass his eyes, although it was still slighty spiky much like that of the trainer in front of him.
"This is gonna be our last battle in a while, huh?" Said the trainer wearing a long red scarf, the expression on his face almost impossible to make out due to so many things covering it, although his eyes didn't show a lot of emotion. The other trainer simply nodded before pulling out one of his Pokeballs from his belt, followed by the other trainer doing the same in response.
"My name is Jack, and I shall be the referee for this battle!" Shouted a man that walked up to the middle of the battlefield. He wore clothes any official referee would, which included black shoes, pants and a yellow shirt. He also held a few flags on his hands, a must for any official battle. "On the left corner stands the man known as Leon!" he pointed with one of his flags to the trainer wearing a scarf, who did nothing in response to it. "He has officially been a trainer for 4 years, and was among the top 16 trainers on the Sinnoh league last year, achieving the 12th position!" Despite it sounding it like praise showering, those statements were more about giving information to the students watching than anything.
"On the right corner stands the man known as Ryan!" Jack followed that by pointing the same flag he used before to him, the trainer nodding in response to it. "Having been a official trainer for 5 years and achieving the 4th position on the Johto league last year, this man is one of the most experienced youngsters of our generation!" With the introductions finally over, the referee proceeded to explain the rules of that battle. "This will be a full 6 on 6 battle! There will be no time limits and both trainers are allowed to switch Pokemon as many times they want! The battle will be over once all Pokemon of a team are considered unable to battle!" Jack followed by moving out of the center of the field and going to a safer position. All the students and teachers of the school were watching the event, and some could barely hold their excitement.
Both of the trainers were friends and rivals for over 2 years, and traveled through Hoenn together. They found themselves in the Unova region at that instance, preparing for their third 6 on 6 battle between each other. Although Ryan had won their first full battle, Leon managed to beat him on their second battle, and this battle was both to decide who of them was the best and as a way of saying farewell to each other, for Ryan was planning on remaining in the region and living there while Leon would be returning to the Sinnoh region and moving on with his adventure.
"Let the battle begin!"
"Alright, Blast! Time for some action!" Leon shouted as he tossed a Pokeball at the field, followed by a Metagross with unusual coloring coming out of it, being silver and golden instead of blue. The Iron Leg Pokemon stood with an air of experience around it, clearly having been part of many battles up to that point. "Nidoking! Prepare for battle!" Ryan sent out his Pokemon shortly after Leon. In this case, it was nothing other than a Nidoking, the Drill Pokemon. It was a battle of two giants, and the start of both rivals's last battle.
"Blast, Meteor Mash!" The Shiny Metagross obeyed it's trainer, it's fist glowing white as he closed distance, it's ability to levitate allowing it to cross it a short amount of time, before he attempted to punch the Drill Pokemon on it's head. "Nidoking, evade to the right then attack with Flamethrower!" Ryan's Pokemon followed the command, easily evading the slow punch and attacking with a burst of flames from it's mouth. "Blast, counter that Flamethrower with Flash Cannon!" shortly after the command, the Iron Leg Pokemon formed a orb of silver energy at it's mouth and fired in direction to the flames that came at him, both attacks clashing and creating a explosion that scattered melted iron around the battlefield due to the properties of both attacks. The students were amazed at what they saw, but to the teachers and more experienced trainers it was nothing new.
"Good reaction time like always..." Ryan said in response to Leon's quick commands, but shortly followed the statement. "But that was just to see if you are going to fight seriously. Nidoking, Drill Run!" The Drill Pokemon ran in direction to the Iron Leg Pokemon, it's signature drill starting to spin as he went head on with a headbutt. "Tch. Blast, Iron Head!" In response to the Drill coming at his direction, the Iron Leg Pokemon countered with a headbutt of it's own, it's head reinforced with hard iron. As they both clashed, Nidoking was having a hard time breaking through the Metagross's head, but his sheer strength was enough to rival that of the Iron Leg Pokemon, allowing him to not be pushed back by it's strength.
Slowly, the Iron Leg Pokemon was pushed back. Not due to the strength of his enemy, but from the type disavantage of the attacks causing him more pain than he could take. His trainer noticed that, and was forced to think of something fast. "Blast, Meteor Mash!" At that distance, there was no way he could miss the attack, but it would take away the concentration required to keep Iron Head active. Leon knew that, yet decided to give the order anyway. If he were to keep things the way they were, his Pokemon was sure to lose.
Pain could be seen on Blast's eyes, yet he ignored as he Meteor Mashed the Nidoking right in the guts, sending him sliding away. The damage on his head was significant, but not enough to put him out of battle, and his enemy was damaged as well now. While it didn't look like any of them was about to back down, both trainers knew the damage was going to catch up soon. "Blast, return!" As he shouted those words, Leon returned his Metagross to it's Pokeball. Ryan showed no surprised over the decision, knowing Leon would never keep his Pokemon in a battle in which it had a type disavantage over it for too long.
"Nocturne, make me proud!" Leon shouted as he threw one of his Pokeballs at the field's direction, followed by an giant bat Pokemon coming out of it. It was none other than a Gliscor. From a type advantage standpoint it was clear Gliscor had the advantage in this battle, but one must never understimate the number of moves a Nidoking can learn for such situations. Leon knew Ryan was always prepared, it was one of his trademark traits. Just like Leon knew that however, Ryan knew Leon had a story of beating well thought out strategies with stuff made up on the spot. They both knew their foe was not one to be underestimated, having years of experience watching each other battle.
"Nocturne, Sky attack!" The scarf wearing trainer shouted, his Pokemon obeying him and flying up to the top of the battlefield where he began to charge the attack, his body glowing due to it. "Nidoking, Fire Blast him out of the sky!" The Drill Pokemon proceeded to fire a giant star of flames from his mouth at his airbone foe, hoping to hit him out of his charging state. Would the attack connect? And if it did, would it be enough? Those are questions that will be answered on the next episode of Pokemon!
