Inactive Death's defeat.
OOC: Changed the 1+Defense to 1+SpD.

Stoke... the Disable. It was a quiet exchange, which gave Luthire a chance to listen in on the battle going on behind him. Problem was, he couldn't really hear anything. It was a bitter dead silence, as though everyone around had simply vanished. Strange indeed.

Iulia eyed Duskull intensely. She didn't appear agitated or even annoyed, but Luthire could feel the battle field heating up. She might melt down the area if she charged up anymore.

Iulia's flames grew intenser by the minute. Still panicked, the greenhorn called for a last-ditch kind of attack; his Duskull vanished into the gentle darkness of the open-field night, then struck her opponent from behind. This also kept her in close enough range for a close-quarters attack, something like putting all of that excessive heat into one fist, then pulling it back, crying out, and...

OOC: Duskull used Shadow Sneak. [-12 HP]

Iulia used FIRCON PAUNCH!
It was kind of underwhelming, though. [-21 HP]

... Not actually dealing that much damage. The Duskull clearly still had plenty of fight in her.

OOC: Virlich's special defense should be +1 still, right?

Okay... so it didn't burn down the entire forest. Even still, the damage was significant. But with Stoke disabled, Luthire decided to switch things up.

OOC: Yes it should.

Iulia began to dance wildly around the Duskull, who seemed more annoyed than hurt by the attack. It reared up, creating illusory phantasms of shadow which terrified poor Iulia and did heavy damage. Duskull's Trainer looked surprised. Had he even known Duskull could use that attack?

Iulia used Whirling Dance! (-7 HP)
The foe's Duskull's Attack fell!
The foe's Duskull used Night Shade! (-17 HP)

The fiery wisp frowned. It seemed as though her attacks weren't connecting as flawlessly as before. Had she lost her touch?

"Iulia, don't give up!"

...If so, Luthire blamed himself. If he hadn't let his guard down during the rival battle, he wouldn't even be here, facing this strange man. He made the shots, not Iulia, so he was at fault. He wondered how he could set things right once more...

"Stop thinking so hard about this. Just finish him off already.", a certain voice muttered from behind. Luthire shook his head a little, and returned his focus to winning the battle. Other thoughts would have to wait.

OOC: Seeing Stoke disabled confused the hell out of me. Thought it was some secondary effect.
The wisp ran forward, coated its hand in flame, and punched the Duskull straight in the... ghost skull? You could tell it did heavy damage, as the Duskull was floating closer to the ground. Despite this, the ghost still sent out a barrage of shadows, terrifying Iulia enough to hurt it.

OOC: Iulia used Fire Punch!
Duskull took 12 damage
Duskull used Night Shade!
Iulia took 17 damage!

Both sides were exhausted, nearly ready to fall to the ground... the decisive round was approaching. First one to hit wins. Iulia was ready to knock Duskull flat on her skull with another Fire Punch. She had the speed. She had the power. Surely, she would win? Surely...

This is taking too long...

A flash of light engulfed Iulia. Ever so suddenly, she was back in the waiting room. The white flag had been raised for her.

Planning on wiping the living ember out, Duskull was commanded to finish the job with a Shadow Sneak, but when its shadow rose from the earth to attack, it met not with Iulia, but a strange looking lizard!

With no farks given, Siaz stepped onto the shadow, walking along it like a star on a red carpet as he approached the masked specter before giving it a biiiiiiiiiig bite!

"Well dangit. There goes my lunch money?" the man said, recalling his pokemon and making a break for it, scrambling up the nearest tree and pretending he was never seen to begin with.

OOC: Duskull used Shadow Sneak! [-4 HP]
Siaz used Bite. Duskull got dunked on! [KO]

Siaz gained 128 exp~
Siaz grew to level 16!

"Guh... that took longer than expected."

When Luthire finally turned around, there was no one to be found. It was as if all of the attackers, a good dozen of them by his own guesstimate, left the scene without making any fuss. Norlai was gone too, strangely enough. Luthire scratched his head at the spectacle, and then promptly remembered that he needed to get back to Etaoin.

The city was just up ahead - maybe 5-10 minutes away at most. Without delaying things further, he headed towards the strange old town.

After wiping out the wisp, a small dust bunny shows up. It looks rather cute and happy, until it notices you. The Pokemon immediately goes into a battle stance and it ready for a fight.

OOC: Running.

Finally... with a encountering a bunny or two, Luthire stepped foot into Etaoin. He could see the Pokemon Center... the old gym... and some blurry signs. What time was it? He couldn't even remember. Not wanting to walk any further, he leaned up beside an old building, and let is consciousness slip away.
