This was approximately the second battle I wrote. I decided to delay it to avoid giving the wrong impression. Doc Moreau is inspired by H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau.

Battle #21: Moreau's Gambit October 14, 2021
Setting: Game 60% / Literature 40%
Player: Doc Moreau [No Record]


DMOREAU appeared!
Ah, it's a beautiful day! The sun is shining, the birds are chirping ...
...And the animals are not smart enough by half!
I have the solution! With my clever surgical tools, I shall uplift the Pokémon of this world into people!

DMOREAU is mad!
I most certainly am not. The advancement of sapient thought is clearly an important scientific pursuit.
Now, to find a subject!

Wild PIKACHU appeared!
Oh! A test subject! This looks like a job for my trusty surgeon's tools.
DMOREAU sent out SCALPEL!
Now, for a bit of the old slice-and-dice before the slice-and-splice...
SCALPEL used SLICE-AND-DICE!
SCALPEL made JULIENNE FRIES!
SCALPEL! It SLICEs! It DICEs!
No, that's not it! ... Although, those do look pretty good.
Wild PIKACHU used THUNDERBOLT!
SCALPEL fainted!
No! Not my scalpel!
... But I may have an idea.

DMOREAU sent out DMOREAU!
DMOREAU threw some JULIENNE FRIES.
Wild PIKACHU is eating!
Yes, perfect! Now, for the capturing net!
DMOREAU used NET!
PIKACHU is ONLINE!
... and tangled up in LINEs!
PIKACHU was caught!
And now, to begin my experiments!
DMOREAU used UPLIFT!
What? PIKACHU is evolving!
PIKACHU evolved into PIKAMAN!
PIKAMAN learned WARLOCK PUNCH!
Now, my creation, let us go forth and spread the joy of the uplift!
PIKAMAN doesn't want to spread UPLIFT!
PIKAMAN wants to fight!
But why, my creation? Surely you're better off this way!
PIKAMAN disagrees!
...Violently!
PIKAMAN used WARLOCK PUNCH!
DMOREAU was sent flying!
DMOREAU fainted!
PIKAMAN won!
PIKAMAN wanders off in search of DEVOLUTION SPRAY!

"Chief", or Silph's Chief / Silph's Manager, was an unused trainer class in the first generation Pokémon games. They didn't actually have a party or a sprite, but used the Scientist sprite.

Battle #22: Chief Exemplary Officer October 21, 2021
Location: Rocket Game Corner
Player: Sam Excavator, Private Investigator [3-1-0] Last Battle: Loss vs. Vulpix (Tournament #2 Round 2)


ROCKET appeared!
ROCKET: Dum de dum de dum... Security's so easy these days...
SAMXCVT used CHICAGO NUTCRACKER!
It's super effective!
ROCKET was knocked out!
One down. But the basement of the den of vice was still absolutely crawling with black hats, like ants in an anthill.
So I decided I'd better make like an ant mimic spider and blend in.
Give 'em the old razzle-dazzle costume change-o.

SAMXCVT used DISGUISE!
SAMXCVT was renamed IMPROCKET!
I looked the spitting image of one of the goons, now. Duds black as tar with a crook's beanie, a lion tamer's whip and an R as red as a ground-down cherry on my chest. Now, to figure out what in the world the Rockets were up to.
IMPROCKET used INFILTRATE!
ROCKET HIDEOUT was fully INFILTRATED!
IMPROCKET got TECHNIDOCS!
I thumbed through the technical documents I'd found in the hideout.
It was worse than I feared. Memories that weren't mine flashed through my head at the sight, and I dreamed of another time long past when the world was ripped asunder by fangs and flipper-hands.
Did they plan to destroy the world all over again!?

CHIEF appeared!
CHIEF: Hey, you aren't supposed to be in those!
My reverie was rudely interrupted by a man in scientist garb with a madness in his eyes and glower like he'd been reading too many Lovecraft novels.
CHIEF: Hey, I have taste in horror. More to the point...
CHIEF: ... No Rocket talks like that.
The game was up.
IMPROCKET was renamed SAMXCVT!

Player: Chief [No Record]

Hey, just because they cut me from the game doesn't mean I can't kick your trenchcoat-wearing hiney right back where you belong.
Enemy SAMXCVT used MONOLOGUE!
It's super exhausting!
... What on earth are you going on about? Do you think you're writing a book?
Oh, whatever. Go, Electrode!

Go! ELECTRODE!
Enemy SAMXCVT sent out SLUGMA!
Electrode, use your Sonic Boom attack!
ELECTRODE used SONIC BOOM!
ELECTRODE is trying to play SONIC BOOM!
Not enough HANDS to play that!
...Well that seems useless.
Wait. That game's garbage, let the Slugma play it.

Enemy SLUGMA is trying to play SONIC BOOM!
Enemy SLUGMA's SANITY greatly fell!
That's more like it! Keep it up!
Enemy SAMXCVT used MONOLOGUE!
It's super confusing!
Wait, nooo...
ELECTRODE is confused!
It hurt itself in its confusion!
Guh.
Enemy SLUGMA is confused!
It hurt itself in its confusion!
Enemy SLUGMA fainted!
Pfah! Shows you...
Enemy SAMXCVT sent out 44 MAGNUM!
Wait, what--
Enemy 44 MAGNUM used MAGNUM OPUS!
Enemy 44 MAGNUM painted MAGNUM OPUS on ELECTRODE's face!
Dare I ask what the overgrown revolver is using for paint...
HIGH VELOCITY LEAD!
ELECTRODE fainted!
!!!!!!
Oh, shoot! Go, Nidoking!!

The enemy's a gun! Get'm, NIDOKING!
Nidoking, use Thrash!
NIDOKING used THRASH!
NIDOKING is blaring THRASH METAL!
It's super effective!
... On enemy SAMXCVT!

Player: Sam Excavator, Private Investigator

It was all coming together. Silph Co., that imposing company in the center of Tokyo with a heart as greedy and corrupt as Mammon's own, had to be in league with the Rockets. That was why they had ties. That was where the Rockets were getting their funding. And that was how they planned to fund their horrific, world shaking works, and how they had funded them as of yet.
But my head felt like it was being used to play the polka with brass knuckles, now. The chief of Silph Co. had deployed some sort of horrible sonic weapon. My ears and head ached just from the sound of it. It was loud, dissonant, and painful just to be around. I had to get out of here!

No! There's no running from a POKé BATTLE!
But it was no use. My avenues of escape were cut off like a coronary patient's arteries. Enemy NIDOKING's attack continues!
There was nothing I could do! The brutal, relentless sonic onslaught got the better of me. The last thing I thought of before I lost consciousness was...ugh...
SAMXCVT fainted. Use next Pokémon?

VAN was renamed NAHVAN!
...But what ever is in here?...

Hrrrh. Why is there a hole here. Maybe there's gun underneath.
NAHMAN entered SECRET PASSAGE!
SECRET PASSAGE went to ROCKET GAME CORNER!

... I take sword back! Make rusty again!!

To Be Continued...

PokéBattles: Red Version had Halloween specials every year from 2000 to 2004, usually involving an undead incarnation of Al Gore. I see no reason not to continue this paradigm. Despite the five Rowdy Teenagers being players at different times, they will all be considered one entity for the purposes of record keeping or if they happen to appear in one of the come-back-to-life tournaments that happen every 50 battles.

RT4: Duuuude. I've heard it's haunted, maybe we can find a ghost!
RT5: ... That sounds like a reason not to do that.
Yeah, we totally should. Let's blow this joint, baby!
... Heh heh. Look, the door's already open even...

BOWL appeared!
Huh? Is that a candy bowl? Maybe someone is here after all... Hah, screw 'em.
RT1 looked in BOWL!

JEEPERS FOOBAR!!
