Kiki grinned as Birdy bounced off. She was very wary of Shawn. He looked confident, like he was planning smething. But Kiki was incredibly curious. She was curious what he had planned. So instead of mixing it up, she decided to just attack again.
"Birdy! Wing Attack!" she cried, laughing happily. She was ready. Ready to see what this rookie had planned. Nothing made her happier than having a good friend as a battle partner.
"Shiva, Protect." Shiva again concentrated and put up the invisible barrier, ready to intercept Birdy's Quick Attack. Shawn anticipated that Kiki would attack again. He also knew what to follow up with...he just had to be sure to get in closer to use it.
Kiki giggled at the pokemon, utterly enjoying herself.
"Time for the ultra mondo super climactic finishing attack! With extra awesomeness! Birdy! Hit with QuickAttack!" Kiki shouted. Birdy chirped and dived, glowing with normal energy, powering through theair at Shiva as hard as he could.
Birdy screeched loudly as he was clipped, hitting the ground again. He shook his head before resuming his confident smirk. Confusion had worn off! Finally. He flapped his wings and took off, flying very low to the ground, catching an updraft and circling higher, about waist height when Kiki cried out the following words. "Double Team!"
With that Birdy created more echoes, which flew in every direction.
Birdy chirped happily as he slammed into the shield and flew off. What a strange bird... Did he enjoy hard, tough fights? But one thing was bad, he was still confused! Still, Kiki had no items, so all she could do was cry out her commands.
"Birdy! Double Team!" she shouted. Birdy chirped and went to use the move, but he seemed to suddenly forget how to fly for an instant. He squawked and screeched, tumbling down and landing painfully on the ground, her wings flapping weakly. He leapt up, trying to get airborne once more.
Kiki shook her head angrily, but Birdy, despite all expectations dodged three of them! Of course, the fourth one hit him in the wing and he lost some altitude. He squawked angrily and flapped his wings wildly to get some height, glowing brightly. Kiki grinned. He was evolving! Soon, he was replaced by a Staraptor, and he circled up high again. But... While he was stronger and had more endurance, evolving didn't make him any less hurt, nor did it remove confusion. Kiki knew this, but she didn't care.
"Birdy! You are so big and strong now! Get him! Use Wing Attack!" she cried. Birdy chirped fiercely and blasted down, his wings glowing white, ready for another pass with a battle cry of "Staravia!"
For all his evasion, Birdy seemed to have terrible luck. He looked down out of distraction and flew int a low branch. With an annoyed chirp he shook his head and took off, his flying a little more unfocused. Kiki KNEW he was confused.
"Hm... Quick Attack!" she cried. Birdy chirped and circled around and soared down at him, chirping happily, loving the battle.
Shawn racked his brain trying to find a way to counteract the double team move she used. No moves Shiva could do would stop Birdy from evading its attacks. Unless...
"Let's try...Supersonic!" he said, hoping it would work. Shiva channeled energy from within and burst forth with a stream of sound at the ring of enemies, sustaining it as long as she can. He hoped to hit Birdy enough to confuse it. After all, what else could he do?
Birdy chirped happily. He wasn't afraid of the ice attack! He soared over the spears and circled over head, more images flying out, Double Team raising his evasion, as Kiki cried out for him to use her favorite move.
"Double Team Birdy!" she shouted. Birdy chirped loudly and he and the echoes kept circling. Shiva and Shawn better do something about this, or they might never even hit Birdy again!
Sting braced for impact, but it was to no avail. Shawn saw the impact and shook his head as Sting slumped over. Oh, well. He fought very well. Shawn returned Sting to his pokeball and thought about who to use next. He flung out his next teammate.
"Get ready," he yelled, full of anticipation. "Come out to play, Shiva!"
Shiva, his new Shellder, came out and wagged its tongue, ready for a fight.
"Let's start with your icicle spear." Shiva concentrated, creating three icicles out of seemingly nothing. With a wave of her tongue, she shot them at the flying pokemon.
