Bittersweet Candy Bowl vs VG Cats Pokemon Battle 4Despite Mike squirming from the pain 'like a ninny' (according to Lucy at least), battle began to sway back into a stalemate. Which was good compared to them losing. However, they have already lost pokemon on both sides. Leo's Blaziken and Aeris' Magnezone and Hitmonlee have fainted, but so have Mike's Gardevoir and Lucy's Empoleon and Togekiss as well. But it looks like Lucy's Roselia might stand a chance against Seviper. Meanwhile, both Leo and Mike's Lucarios duke it out in a battle of the auras.Bittersweet Candy Bowl vs VG Cats Pokemon Battle 4 by SnipeSmash
Mike: Lucario, use Bone Rush!
Leo: Do the same Lucario!
The Lucarios obeyed and both materialized an energy bone and charged. Both attacks hit each other, creating a shock wave that was felt by both sides. The Lucarios then started exchanging blows with their energy bones, parries, evades, and ripostes were made, but neither side could land a hit.
Finally, a blow landed. One of the Lucarios was launched upward by the force of the strike.
Mike: Use Aura Sphere!
Leo: Lucario do that too!
Bittersweet Candy Bowl vs VG Cats Pokemon Battle 3The battle looked like it would go well for Mike... At first at least.Bittersweet Candy Bowl vs VG Cats Pokemon Battle 3 by SnipeSmash
It appeared as though his Gardevoir was underleveled according to the power of its attacks. Which confused Mike, as he had level grinded to get her to 73. He never used rare candy, so why is-
Lucy: MIKE!!! CAN YOU HEAR ME?!!!
Mike winced in pain
Mike: Ow, what?!
Lucy: TELL GARDEVOIR TO STOP PROTECTING YOUR EARS!!!
Mike: I can hear you just fine Lucy! Also, why should I do that?
Lucy: Why do you think we're losing!? She cant use her psychic attacks properly because she's too busy plugging your ears!
Mike realized she was right.
Lucy: Also, you look ridiculous with those on.
Leo: I AGREE! hehe, its hard to take you seriously when you look like you sneezed while holding you nose and inflated you eardrums lol!
Aeris: Leo, eardrums are not pink, they're white...
Leo: They're still funny to look at.
Mike: But the noise! I can't stand it!
Lucy: You're going make us lose to a retard and a psychopath, ju
Bittersweet Candy Bowl vs VG Cats Pokemon Battle 2"Both teams have agreed to fight to the best of their abilities, Let the battle commence!" the referee shouted.Bittersweet Candy Bowl vs VG Cats Pokemon Battle 2 by SnipeSmash
Mike and Lucy send out their pokemon in fashion typical of the anime.
Mike: Gardevoir, I choose you!
Lucy: Come on out Empoleon!
Aeris and Leo follow suite.
Leo: Go get 'em, Blaziken!
Aeris: Sic em Seviper!
The sight of the pokemon makes the crowd ecstatic, causing Mike to cover his ears in pain, desperately trying to block out the noise all around him.
Lucy: If you dont like the noise, why did you even come? You knew we were gonna have a loud audience.
Mike screamed as he couldn't even hear himself think with all the cheering.
Mike: I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO A SMALLER STADIUM WITH A SMALLER CROWD!!!
Suddenly, two psychic earplugs appeared and lodged themselves into Mike's ears. Effectively blocking out the troublesome ruckus. He could hear the announcer, Lucy, and his opponents just fine. But the crowd's hollering was blocked out.
Mike: Thanks Gardevoir!

The crowd cheers, the stadium is shaking with excitement.
"Prepare yourselves for an event that can only happen in a fan fic!"
The stadium lights came on, revealing the contestants for today's match in the center of the field. Mike and Lucy were the first ones the cameras notice, showing their faces onto TV screens around the globe, before switching to Leo and Aeris and doing the same.
"These two characters are here to duke it out for your benefit! Now the contestants will do the customary handshake and wish each other well in the battle..."
Mike and Aeris shook hands.
"Best of luck to you and whatever..." said Aeris
"Thank's, and good luck to you too!" said Mike
Leo and Lucy shook hands.
"Be sure not to cry when I beat you." Said Lucy
"Me crying? Isn't it your webcomic that's all about the unnecessary drama?" said Leo with a smirk.
"Oh, it's on now" Lucy re
Who I AmThe sky appeared almost dreary, covered in a thick blanket of gray cloud. Wasn't too out of
the ordinary, considering how erratic the weather had been lately. However I wasn't all
that pleased with it, feeling as though it might rain any second, which would be horrible
considering the circumstances.
Slowly I stepped one foot at a time into the water. The lake was cold today, which I
expected, as I felt a chill run through my entire body. The chill wasn't simply from the
cold however. I was...well, I wasn't too nervous but I was a little. But it wasn't really
anything complicated. It was important but I definitely wasn't worried.
There was a line of others in front of me and behind me in the water. The order went from
youngest to oldest. A young girl whom I guessed was about seven or eight years old was
first and a few people behind me in the back was a couple maybe in their mid-thirties. I
was near the middle, being eighteen. I could tell I wasn't the only one who was cold
