Escaping to the One Place That Hasn't Been Corrupted

DragonierMan, Magistrate, Suzume, and Aya arrived via portal from Wrangler's Booth to hunt some high level ThunderDragons IN SPAAAAAAACE! They took a moment to check themselves and their equipment. After a few minutes of tightening straps and sheathing blades, the four spread their wings and took to the stars.

[Requesting Battle 1.]
Arriving in the deeper reaches of Naxa was another milestone for the dragoniers on their quest for ever greater strength. The landing pad they arrived at drifted in a slow orbit around a larger chunk of a shattered space station, broken and twisted metal, exposed circuitry and dimly flickering lights creating a scene of long abandonment. The arrival point itself was dilapidated, with only a few of the solar lights still functioning at an irregular flicker, while the rest that made up the circle were dead, shattered or cracked.

Beyond, the darkness of forgotten space stretched out; a scattering of distant nebulae and swirls of coloured space dust forming beautiful, but far off patterns all around them. The air was still and cold; frigidly so, lacking any of the higher nets' controlled niceties to make space journeys more palatable.

After taking the time to check their equipment and make sure they were all ready, the group took wing and began to travel, initially scouting along the remains of the nearby wreckage. They'd barely taken off, however, before the first signs of hostile life found them. A crackle of electrical sparks began with an arc between two broken pieces of metal below them, before jumping again, and a second time, resolving quickly into the form of a dangerous thunder dragon, making its home amongst the ruin before them. As it poked its head out of the small alcove it seemed to be centred around, a glint from ahead gave light to another pair of viruses floating free; two space rocks, shaped like a sun and a moon respectively, that had been orbiting one another as they drifted towards the fresh navi signals now held still and glowed brighter as they gave off distorted harmonic sounds. One more signal revealed itself, though the virus itself was hard to spot – off tot he party's right, a small cluster of faintly glowing cubes drifted in a group and gave off a small amount of light. Within them, however, a cubic virus came to life, beginning to phase its colours between blue and red before settling onto red for the time being.

ThunderDragon3 EXThunderDragon3 EX (ThunderDragon)

This high tier virus is only encountered after battle 5. A PotDragon's pot is stationary during battle, as it remains above the panel the virus appeared on until battle is over or the virus is deleted, and will not fall even if the panel below it should be destroyed. PotDragons have two main attacks, each geared towards either ground or aerial targets. When executed, the pot tilts or falls over, and the dragon charges at the enemy before looping back and returning to the pot. When threatened, they will duck into the pot, which is both indestructible and capable of shielding them from all damage and effects except those that manage to fly into the mouth of the pot. Even Beam Attacks and Blast damage won't leave a mark.

The four dragoniers surveyed the broken space station from their perch on a damaged landing pad, the fluorescent lights flickering among the sea of stars. Smoke from their warm breath wafted off them, spiraling into the cold darkness beyond. Their eyes were pools of shimmering silver-gray peaking out from within the shadow of their helmets, glinting like the twisted steel structures around them. Their wings spread out like webbed-claws, grasping onto whatever little air existed, and lifted them from their pedestal. The area was so cold that their scales frosted at the edges with rime whenever they stopped flapping and held on a glide.

Thankfully they would be getting warmed up pretty soon as they found their first opponents of the day. Their combat subroutines powered up as they flew into the battlefield. Blinking out one after the other, the four spread out across the vastness of the sky, transporting themselves to the four cardinal directions of a 2D plane. They created a cross, with the viruses centered within. Each raising their arms upwards in preparation to attack.

Magistrate wove an intricate circle with her hands, drawing transparent water droplets to her fingertips. They flowed and sparkled with the changing light of the nebula behind them, crystalizing into a ring of multi-hued ice. She aimed the crystaline bracelet at the trio of floating, non-dragon viruses and then shattered it with a swing of her fists. The crystals shot forth like comets, trailing rainbow streams of ice behind. Before they reached their targets they suddenly changed direction, arcing up high into the sky before descending down upon the QUADCUBE, Solarite3, and Lunaroid3 like tiny meteors.

Suzume flared with red-hot flames as she brought her wrath upon her foe. The icy rime bled off her as steam as she heated up the space around her, partially concealing herself in a cloud of foggy mist. Three great fireballs, like miniature suns, quickly burned away the smoke as they formed above her. They haloed her in their bright radiance, much like an angel, before she dropped her arms and sent them sailing towards the viruses. They blazed a destructive path through the cosmos as they zeroed in on their targets, with flames hot enough to shatter stone and reduce debris to ash.

Sparks jumped off of Aya as she formed her own storm. Lightning crackled around her as she bound the chaotic energies within her gloved fists. She drew them apart with strained effort, forming a great arch, and grasped it like a longbow. Notching three arrows of searing light, she drew her weapon taught, aimed at the same three viruses the others were targeting, and let loose. The bolts of electricity flew from her bow like gleaming stars, soaring across the black, and unerringly weaving around the floating debris towards their marks.

Finally DragonierMan, who was collecting the cosmic power of the universe within his body, acted. As his body glowed with strength and vitality, he folded his wings, and launched himself towards his adversaries. Like a bullet from a gun, he fired himself into the pandemonium. He streaked through the void like a rocket, crashing through and knocking aside everything in his path. His speed overclocking beyond the normal, into the extraordinary. For a moment he looked like a dazzling beam of plaid luminescence.

The four winged warriors then, as nimble and evasively as they could, attempted to dodge out of the way of return fire. C-beams glittered in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate as the dragoniers tried to put intervening space junk between them and their enemy. They twisted and rolled as they flew, avoiding what they could. Their wings beating the thin air with all the power and speed they could muster. Flying as if their lives depended on them. For if they failed, they would be struck with deadly force.

Unfazed by the dark and the cold, the Dragoniers were quick to snap to their usual attack formations, activating their defences as they split up to pin down the nearby viral targets. The dragon, coursing around on the ruined station below them roared at the group, then burst upwards towards the cluster of warriors in a raging stream of lightning. Unfortunately for the beast, it arrived too late and too slow, hitting nothing at all as it arced through the empty space where the four dragoniers had been moments ago.

Magistrate was the first and fastest to reposition and begin her attack, but though the multi-hued crystal shot slammed into the cube virus, her other two shots had less fortune; one lacked in precision, while the other seemed to be on course, before its Solarite target curved away, spinning around its partner and evading the lethal dose of ice.

As the sun moved, the moon-rock glowed briefly and launched a piercing beam of blue-white light across the field towards where it seemed to have predicted Suzume would appear. Lucky for the support program, however, it timed the shot just poorly enough that she appeared in her new position just moments after the beam had already passed through.

A second later, the twins countered with raging fire and sparking lightning shots from either side of the destroyed station, hammering the cube virus out of existence and destroying the moon-shaped rock as well. The solar virus took one hit, but not enough to destroy it yet. Let without its partner, the virus turned from a warm orange glow to an enraged, glaring red, ready to attack ceaselessly for the destruction of its twin. It was too focused on the sisters, however, and before it could launch even a single beam at any of them, it was summarily obliterated by a rampaging DragonierMan crushing through its blind angle and diving down towards the electric dragon below.

The dragon witnessed the light show of devastation above it, and had elected, for the moment to hide inside its home, taking shelter; Drago crashed into the space hard, destroying floating debris and crashing down on the surface of the ruined station, but whatever oddly pot-like structure the dragon had retreated into, it withstood the assault with aplomb. It's safety wouldn't last, however; it had nowhere to go, and now it was the only virus remaining to face the dragoniers.

The four dragoniers swept through the opening minutes of the battle, quickly dispatching 75% of the enemy team. Their efficient aerial maneuvers, aided by instant transportation and lightspeed dashes, kept them whole against withering fire. Their attacks were highly accurate and deadly. As the smoke cleared from the opening volley, their bounty was the only one left, all alone in the night. Coming to the end of the battle, the four each reached to their hips and drew out heavy, blunt swords from their scabbards.

Their forms shimmered against the void as they all gathered around the top rim of the DragonPot. Its intricately carved body creaked under the sudden weight of four sets of booted feet, and the heavily armed and armored warriors that went with them, as they appeared as if by magic. Grasping the hilts of their swords, the four raised their weapons high, before plunging the blades deep within the bowls of the stone coffin. Songs would be sung about the brave knights who followed the feared dragon into its lair and slew it with force of arms. Again and again their blades fell upon the cowering dragon, who had nowhere to go. The haunting light of the stars above gleamed sickly off the stoic, deathly pale, silver wraiths who silently brought swift and brutal judgment down upon another tortured soul.

With their last enemy on the defence, the ground zeroed in on the final virus, surrounding its hiding place and preparing to strike. Getting the blades into the entryway was itself a bit tricky, and their first hail of blows hammered in around the unyielding hidey-hole, but a moment later, in a brief pause, the dragon dared to peek out and see if the group had given up; they hadn't, and it was cut down with brutal efficiency a moment later, leaving the dragoniers to gather the salvageable data from the battle in peace.

For such a relatively small tussle, the value of data they were able to recover was quite impressive, at this net depth; ages worth of unserched and unscoured resources, left forgotten seemed to provide rich pickings for the group. In particular, some potent and unusual data from the destroyed moon rock resolved into something they might be able to use themselves.

ThunderDragon3 EXThunderDragon3 EX (ThunderDragon)

This high tier virus is only encountered after battle 5. A PotDragon's pot is stationary during battle, as it remains above the panel the virus appeared on until battle is over or the virus is deleted, and will not fall even if the panel below it should be destroyed. PotDragons have two main attacks, each geared towards either ground or aerial targets. When executed, the pot tilts or falls over, and the dragon charges at the enemy before looping back and returning to the pot. When threatened, they will duck into the pot, which is both indestructible and capable of shielding them from all damage and effects except those that manage to fly into the mouth of the pot. Even Beam Attacks and Blast damage won't leave a mark.

[Requesting Battle 2.]
Continuing along his way through the network, Dragonierman and friends would soon find themselves at a large chunk of what appeared to be an artificial planetoid made to somehow support life, viral or otherwise. Interlocked by the diagonals, the large chunk of metal had been given small charges of electricity here and there, leading to solar panels being interspersed across the landscape in smaller areas than the metal. Popping up from the missing area right in front of the team, a pair of third-tier Maru viruses, black sparks leaping from the balls of glitched electricity darting back and forth in front of the quartet with big smiles plastered on their faces, easily within an arms reach of Dragonierman at least.

This, unfortunately, brought out a trio of other residents within the artificial planet. A black sphere with limbs, shades and a duo of sky-blue hat and sneakers would come out nearby, flanking towards the left of the area, a fuse inserted in it's head and alight. A mechanical monstrosity in dark blue, swords on either arm and flickering in the low-light as it prepared itself to launch it's signature balls of lightning at the quartet, clanking it's swords meanicingly. And finally, the quarry of the dragon slayer, the ever angry ThunderDragon3, roaring out in the back part of the area, seated upon one of those faintly glowing panels of solar...with a spinning purple data crystal right behind it...a dragon's hoard, perhaps? Either way, battle routines were set and the viruses were ready.

-- Viruses --
Maru-11Maru-11 (Maru)

Maru are rather small floating spheres of electricity, with two beady black eyes. They never appear solo, and will always have at least one other Maru at their side. While they're exactly as sturdy as one would expect from a ball of electrical energy, they can inflict bugs with their electric shocks. Maru are highly intelligent for being what they are, and love to combine tactics with others of their kind to make sure they each get to shock the enemy at maximum efficiency. Their small size and ability to move in any direction makes them extremely hard to hit.

Area: Netopia, NAXA

HP: 140
Attack Damage/Effect: 65 Elec + Glitch
Attack Accuracy: B (special)
Attack Description: Fires a small bolt of electricity that corrupts the data of whatever it hits.
Type: Elec
Possible Rewards (Per Virus): MaruBlaster3, Zenny
Special: OmniShoes
Special: Taser: If this virus is within Melee range of an enemy, its attack's accuracy is A. If an enemy uses a close range chip, they may counterattack immediately following that attack as a free action. Multi-hit close range chips only trigger one counterattack.
Special: All attacks that target this virus are treated as being two accuracy ranks lower (i.e. A is treated as C) against that virus.
Special: Can use Barrier twice.
A: 140 HP (Missing) (Next to Maru-11B) (Right in front of Dragonierman and friends)

Special: Can use Barrier twice.
B: 140 HP (Missing) (Next to Maru-11A) (In front of the Dragonierman team)
BombLabBombLab (BombLab)

BombLab viruses attack by summoning a huge cube-shaped explosive, called a BoyBomb. They push this bomb towards their enemies, using it as cover against incoming fire as they do so. It takes a BombLab virus an action to summon a BoyBomb, and another 2 to push it into attack range of the enemy. Once the explosive is in range, it will explode the very next turn. BoyBombs have StoneBody, and can be moved with special abilities, such as Knockback, Microburst, Pull, Gravity, and Telekinesis. BoyBombs will explode if physically picked up, however (EX: Rageclaw or similar means). Bomb Lab viruses jump, not teleport, back to their starting position after setting the BoyBomb.

Area: Netopia, Sharo, NAXA

: 280 HP (About middle-ish of the field, to the left) (Metal)
DoomMechDoomMech (DarkMech)

DarkMechs move and dodge at an average rate, usually. The exception is that they move at a very high rate of speed when they are rushing in to attack a stunned target with their twin swords. They fire low damage thunderball projectiles until someone becomes stunned, at which time one of the DarkMechs present will attack that target.

Area: Sharo, NAXA, NetVegas

HP: 280
Primary Attack Damage/Effect: 25 Elec + Homing + Stun1
Primary Attack Accuracy: C
Primary Attack Description: Fires a slow-moving homing thunderball that stuns on contact.
Secondary Attack Damage/Effect: 50 Null + Slashing x 2 Hits, Stun Cure
Secondary Attack Accuracy: A
Secondary Attack Description: When a stunned target is detected, this virus rushes in to attack them with twin sword slashes. If the attack connects, the target will be cured of all instances of Stun, no mater how many.
Element: None.
Possible Rewards (Per Virus): AssassinSword, Zenny
Special: Only slashes stunned targets. If a target is stunned by another virus, it will attack that target. If more than one DarkMech is present, they take turns attacking.

-- Chaos Battle 2 Ready? Start!! --
The two Maru-11s were too close for comfort for the dragoniers. They quickly moved so fast as to disappear into the ether, warping like starships through a wormhole of their own making. DragonierMan appeared near the BombLab, and floated on a short cushion of air nearby. He loomed, ever so slightly over the smaller virus. Drago would offer a congratulatory high-five to the virus and a hearty handshake for making it this far, so deep and dark within the Chaos, but the little guy didn't have any hands. Pitty.

The trio of Support Programs appeared in the air, high above the artificial metal planetoid. The air was thin and cold, and made it hard to breath, but they wouldn't be staying there long. A protective barrier bubbled around them, as rainbow scales grew hard over their much softer skin. They each carried a canister, a mechanical cylinder that they grasped with both hands, and pressed a big red button upon. They dropped the canisters like bombs upon the field below, like airplanes releasing their payloads.

A cacophony of explosions went off as various elemental energies rained down like streamers from a party ball. As they were falling, Drago patted his shoulder and aimed it at the BombLab. His heels dug into an invisible platform right before he took off. He dashed forward to tackle the BombLab and then try to continue onward into the DoomMech, and perhaps even the ThunderDragon3 if he could avoid also colliding with the Mystery Data. There was a sonic crackling and popping as he quickly reached speeds thought impossible by mortal men. A mach-cone formed around him as if he were a jet fighter on afterburners, and he used the kinetic energy of that much speed to do the damage for him as he sped across the field.

The fireworks struck right after. Icy blue blobs, red-hot sparklers, and electrifying snakes crashed into the metallic asteroid in threes. They zeroed in on the BombLab, DoomMech, and ThunderDragon3 that inhabited this doomed heavenly body. Lancing in on them like tiny guided missiles. The ground would probably be terraformed by the massive amounts of water and fire dumped upon it. But would the viruses survive into this new world?

As Drago kept moving, he drew a massive emerald blade, and leaped at the ThunderDragon3. Mono-e-mono he would take the enemy dragon's head, or suffer a crushing counterattack. He attempted to use his powers of flight to maneuver himself into a position just above his opponent, jerking this way and that with mighty beats of his wings. If he managed to get above it, even if just for a moment, he would bring down his great sword down upon the dragon's head. His muscles flexed and strained as he plunged his blade down, attempting to sheath the sharp point of the tip of his sword deep into its brain.

Moving quickly into action, the dragoniers opted for another versions of their usual attack patterns, teleporting away from their initial engagement positions before their targets could get a good bead on them. As they took up their positions this time, the dark-coloured mech raised its weapons and released a crackling ball of electricity towards where Drago had been a moment ago. The projectile meandered, curving as it rectified its course and began to move towards the virus-hunter's new position.

The little energy ball would have a while to chase, however, because Drago didn't stay there for long. As he blasted across the field in a crashing tackle, then ThunderDragon gathered itself then launched towards him in turn, trying to intercept its quarry en route. Drago crashed throug the BombLab with a rather more forceful high-five than it probably would have appreciated anyway, barely missed the ThunderDragon as its path intersected his, and then tackled into the DoomMech on the other side. He left two viruses badly damage, and had successfully foil the dragons efforts to attack him back.

A moment later, his allies began to unleash their attacks on the field of foes, with careful, mystery-data-protecting precision, despite the sudden light-show of elements. Magistrate was quickest, her aqua attacks striking true on each target and hampering them. Just as she attacked, however, the two Maru viruses seemed to key onto her element of choice, and zipped towards her with sudden speed. Magistrate was able to avoid the first Maru's zapping shot, but as she did the second drew in close and tazed her blindside. The jolt was enough to cut through her barrier, and though the force of the attack stopped there, traces of corrupt code filtered through to the SP regardless. All around her, the world seemed to speed up, faster, and faster, and faster. To others, Magistrate suddenly seemed to be moving in an exponentially increasing slow motion.

The twins were still occupied with their own attacks, for now. Suzume's attack struck second, and the destructive fires were enough to destroy the BombLab before it could do anything at all, and the Doom Mech before it could do anything else. The dragon weathered the hit, but looked worse for it. It didn't have long to nurse its hurts, however, as Aya's attack detonated only moments after her sister's. This one finished off the dragon soundly. The remaining two thunderbolts lost their initial targets, then realigned to the pair of Maru harassing Magistrate as the only viral signatures remaining. The two electric motes turned in place and seemed to draw in on themselves, almost as though they were wincing, or bracing, just as a pair of static barriers englobed each virus and diffused the electric beams. Both Marus seemed to shudder at the close call, sparking.

With only the slippery Maru left, Drago had a moment spare to contemplate whether his close-range blade was the best choice for dealing with them, or if a different tactic might be better. (And the mod wasn't going to redirect an attack that would expose you to an automatic counter)

-=Viruses=-
Maru-11Maru-11 (Maru)

Maru are rather small floating spheres of electricity, with two beady black eyes. They never appear solo, and will always have at least one other Maru at their side. While they're exactly as sturdy as one would expect from a ball of electrical energy, they can inflict bugs with their electric shocks. Maru are highly intelligent for being what they are, and love to combine tactics with others of their kind to make sure they each get to shock the enemy at maximum efficiency. Their small size and ability to move in any direction makes them extremely hard to hit.

Area: Netopia, NAXA

HP: 140
Attack Damage/Effect: 65 Elec + Glitch
Attack Accuracy: B (special)
Attack Description: Fires a small bolt of electricity that corrupts the data of whatever it hits.
Type: Elec
Possible Rewards (Per Virus): MaruBlaster3, Zenny
Special: OmniShoes
Special: Taser: If this virus is within Melee range of an enemy, its attack's accuracy is A. If an enemy uses a close range chip, they may counterattack immediately following that attack as a free action. Multi-hit close range chips only trigger one counterattack.
Special: All attacks that target this virus are treated as being two accuracy ranks lower (i.e. A is treated as C) against that virus.
Special: Can use Barrier twice.
A: 140Hp (HA) (Next to Magistrate)

Special: Can use Barrier twice.
B: 140Hp (HA) (Next to Magistrate)
BombLabBombLab (BombLab)

BombLab viruses attack by summoning a huge cube-shaped explosive, called a BoyBomb. They push this bomb towards their enemies, using it as cover against incoming fire as they do so. It takes a BombLab virus an action to summon a BoyBomb, and another 2 to push it into attack range of the enemy. Once the explosive is in range, it will explode the very next turn. BoyBombs have StoneBody, and can be moved with special abilities, such as Knockback, Microburst, Pull, Gravity, and Telekinesis. BoyBombs will explode if physically picked up, however (EX: Rageclaw or similar means). Bomb Lab viruses jump, not teleport, back to their starting position after setting the BoyBomb.

DoomMechDoomMech (DarkMech)

DarkMechs move and dodge at an average rate, usually. The exception is that they move at a very high rate of speed when they are rushing in to attack a stunned target with their twin swords. They fire low damage thunderball projectiles until someone becomes stunned, at which time one of the DarkMechs present will attack that target.

Area: Sharo, NAXA, NetVegas

HP: 280
Primary Attack Damage/Effect: 25 Elec + Homing + Stun1
Primary Attack Accuracy: C
Primary Attack Description: Fires a slow-moving homing thunderball that stuns on contact.

Element: None.
Possible Rewards (Per Virus): AssassinSword, Zenny
Special: Only slashes stunned targets. If a target is stunned by another virus, it will attack that target. If more than one DarkMech is present, they take turns attacking.
: DELETED
ThunderDragon3ThunderDragon3 (ThunderDragon)

This high tier virus is only encountered after battle 5. A PotDragon's pot is stationary during battle, as it remains above the panel the virus appeared on until battle is over or the virus is deleted, and will not fall even if the panel below it should be destroyed. PotDragons have two main attacks, each geared towards either ground or aerial targets. When executed, the pot tilts or falls over, and the dragon charges at the enemy before looping back and returning to the pot. When threatened, they will duck into the pot, which is both indestructible and capable of shielding them from all damage and effects except those that manage to fly into the mouth of the pot. Even Beam Attacks and Blast damage won't leave a mark.

Area: NAXA

HP: 300
Primary Attack Damage/Effect: 150 Elec + Ground Attack + Medium Area Magnet Terrain Change + Terrain Changer
Primary Attack Accuracy: C
Primary Attack Description: Charges from its pot at high speed to attack ground-based enemies whilst leaving a trail of Magnet in its wake.
Secondary Attack Damage/Effect: 150 Elec + Impact + Group Attack (Arc)
Secondary Attack Accuracy: C
Secondary Attack Description: Flies from its pot at high speed to attack airborne enemies.
Tertiary Attack Damage/Effect: Invulnerability to Non-Drop Attacks/attacks from above.
Tertiary Attack Accuracy: S

The dragoniers once more managed to have Lady Luck on their side, quickly dominating the field, and bringing the virus count to a more managable two. DragonierMan tossed his sword to the side, unblemished, and summoned forth a rifle with a fairly sizeable clip of four high-caliber shots. He took aim at the Maru-11s near Magistrate, sighting them in the scope of the rifle. He called up to her as he began blasting: "Protect the Data! Suzume, Aya, shoot them down!" A loud bang signalled his first shot, followed by a large spent casing clunking to the ground next to him. The projectile rocketed towards the first Maru-11, intent on causing a lot of damage, as only being shot by a high-caliber bullet can.

Magistrate moved to protect the Purple Mystery Data with a strong bubble shield, as Suzume and Aya followed suit with their own firearms. Sizable cannon rounds launched out of shoulder-mounted blasters with boisterous thunder. The twins attempted to use their wings to try to stabilize themselves from the massive recoil that only cannons usually mounted on tank turrets could offer, flapping furiously to keep aloft. The dense tank shells sailed like agile arrows fired from the mighty Orion's bow, directly at the Maru-11s. Buoyant in the thin atmosphere of NAXA Net. Though they would still cause near-fatal wounds to those they hit.

With their task done, the trio of female dragoniers booked it from the quick and nimble floating spheres of electricity. They didn't want to be anywhere near them, as they seemed to want to get close. And if something wants to get close to you when it has a ranged attack, there is something fishy going on. They teleported as far away as they could get without leaving the battlefield behind. Meanwhile, Drago was staying just far away to get a bead on the twin Maru-11s with his rifle. He fired one shot after another until all the bullets were spent. Bullets wizzing through the air as he filled the space between them with lead. As the last shot was fired, the rifle gave a hearty DING!, before falling apart in his hands.

With no weapon, he gathered energy into his fists, and continued the assault. His arms pumped back and forth, again and again, as he blasted energy pellets at the Maru-11s. He was his own rapid-fire machine gun.

Quick on the draw with his weapon, Dragonier would crack off a quick shot to the Maru in his sights, unfortunately for him, the shot would go wide as it flitted out of the way without a second thought with a static crackle that sounded similar to a giggle. His cohorts would follow suit with their TankCannons, as well as a protective barrier around the PMD before the Maru viruses could respond in kind, a protective wrapping coming up around the spinning data as the two cannons rang out in space, both managing to paste the Maru virus they had their sights set on before it could evade, a near miss on Aya's part, but clipping the virus just the same and reducing the numbers down to the singular Maru as it flitted about in the semi-low gravity the navis felt.

It's body crackling loudly as it attempted to rush one of the SPs, but with their quick thinking, the navi and his allies would teleport away from the Maru mid-lunge, virus bonking it's head against the metal terrain and quickly shaking it's body back and forth in an attempt to reorient itself. But quick on his trigger, Dragonier would squeeze off his shots against the singular virus...and with luck and added accuracy from his teleport, managed to rip the virus apart with two well placed shots, virus disintegrating as his weapon did the same. Rewards scattered about the field, now Dragonier had the chance to open the PMD without getting assaulted from the local population.

-=Viruses=-
Maru-11Maru-11 (Maru)

Maru are rather small floating spheres of electricity, with two beady black eyes. They never appear solo, and will always have at least one other Maru at their side. While they're exactly as sturdy as one would expect from a ball of electrical energy, they can inflict bugs with their electric shocks. Maru are highly intelligent for being what they are, and love to combine tactics with others of their kind to make sure they each get to shock the enemy at maximum efficiency. Their small size and ability to move in any direction makes them extremely hard to hit.

Area: Netopia, NAXA

HP: 140
Attack Damage/Effect: 65 Elec + Glitch
Attack Accuracy: B (special)
Attack Description: Fires a small bolt of electricity that corrupts the data of whatever it hits.

Possible Rewards (Per Virus): MaruBlaster3, Zenny
Special: OmniShoes
Special: Taser: If this virus is within Melee range of an enemy, its attack's accuracy is A. If an enemy uses a close range chip, they may counterattack immediately following that attack as a free action. Multi-hit close range chips only trigger one counterattack.
Special: All attacks that target this virus are treated as being two accuracy ranks lower (i.e. A is treated as C) against that virus.
Special: Can use Barrier twice.

BombLabBombLab (BombLab)

BombLab viruses attack by summoning a huge cube-shaped explosive, called a BoyBomb. They push this bomb towards their enemies, using it as cover against incoming fire as they do so. It takes a BombLab virus an action to summon a BoyBomb, and another 2 to push it into attack range of the enemy. Once the explosive is in range, it will explode the very next turn. BoyBombs have StoneBody, and can be moved with special abilities, such as Knockback, Microburst, Pull, Gravity, and Telekinesis. BoyBombs will explode if physically picked up, however (EX: Rageclaw or similar means). Bomb Lab viruses jump, not teleport, back to their starting position after setting the BoyBomb.

DoomMechDoomMech (DarkMech)

DarkMechs move and dodge at an average rate, usually. The exception is that they move at a very high rate of speed when they are rushing in to attack a stunned target with their twin swords. They fire low damage thunderball projectiles until someone becomes stunned, at which time one of the DarkMechs present will attack that target.

ThunderDragon3ThunderDragon3 (ThunderDragon)

This high tier virus is only encountered after battle 5. A PotDragon's pot is stationary during battle, as it remains above the panel the virus appeared on until battle is over or the virus is deleted, and will not fall even if the panel below it should be destroyed. PotDragons have two main attacks, each geared towards either ground or aerial targets. When executed, the pot tilts or falls over, and the dragon charges at the enemy before looping back and returning to the pot. When threatened, they will duck into the pot, which is both indestructible and capable of shielding them from all damage and effects except those that manage to fly into the mouth of the pot. Even Beam Attacks and Blast damage won't leave a mark.

[Requesting Battle 3.]
The group struck out further into the cold dark, but hadn't been travelling for too long before something in the distance to their right caught the dragonier's collective eyes. It was distant, at first; a bright point of light glow in the distance and growing closer. The point grew at what they would realise was an alarming speed, leaving a trail behind it of multi-hued light that stretched out more and more.

In another few seconds, it became clear that it wasn't a point of light approaching, but some kind of trial, or stream. It twisted and curved, looped over on itself and rose and fell in an erratic way, blistering a rainbow of light towards them and leaving behind a crazed roadway through the dark.

A moment later, the leading edge of the light blasted past them, just beneath where the dragoniers flew and leaving them, for all it seemed, drifting in the middle of a hard light roadway made up of a spectrum of repeating colours. The leading edge shot onward without slowing, but in its wake the faint ghosts of racing cars blasted past as well, one after another, all jockeying for place. Other more tangible entities seemed to have been dragged along with the on-going space race, skidding to a halt along the bright road-way all around the dragoniers.

Two high tech satellites rolled to awkward halt a short way in front and behind their position, while a particularly nasty-looking mettfire had fetched up against the side of a large dragon pot that had rolled a fair way past the group before tipping into a more stable, upright position. Seemingly better able to control itself, a large many-armed gigas-type virus seemed to have been chasing after the careening race car images on its rolling ball, but now focused its attention on DragonierMan and his allies instead, bringing its floating arms up into a fighting stance.

God HandGod Hand (Gigas)

The Gigas are a clan of 8 foot tall viruses whose semi-humanoid bodies are made of a durable metal alloy. Gigas lack legs, and instead roll around on a 3 ton solid steel ball 2-feet in diameter that rests in a cupola. Rising from the top of the cupola is an alloy pillar that supports their metal bodies. The Gigas fight with their huge iron fists, which are provided their immese striking power by large barrel-like forearms. Their great-helm-like heads sit directly atop their shoulders with their blocky hinged jaw slanted in a sneer while their neon-red eyes radiate their hatred of all things Navigator. It is speculated that Gigas are a hacked derivative of the Bladia viruses spliced together with fragments of other viruses and a healthy dose of battlechip program data. This would account for their size, strength, and malicious nature. Where and how this was possibly accomplished is unknown. Gigas move at increased speed, but dodge at a slower than average rate. Gigas viruses prefer to pummel the life out of their foes with their bare hands (even though using the ball-and-chain in melee range would be more devastating), but if they find themselves surrounded or at a great distance to their target, they will use the ball-and-chain to perform a HammerToss. If an object blocks their path, they will either send it flying with a GigasArm attack, or smash it to dust before continuing on. Gigas will sink like the lead weights they are in liquid, and they know it. They will avoid liquid terrain entirely, if possible, and will never appear near these types of naturally occuring terrain for this reason. Only a Gigas' body is damageable. Striking a Gigas' cast iron arms will not damage the virus or the arms themselves, no matter what you hit them with. The Gigas' will not intentionally defend themselves with their arms, as they should be too busy pummeling or hurling something to bother. Do not abuse this.

Special: Burial: Opponents struck by this effect are forcibly buried in soft terrain types (Mud, Sand, Snow) or submerged in liquid terrain types. Otherwise, the panel is cracked. If the panel is fragile, it becomes broken, and the target falls into the hole. This effect doesn't work if the target is standing on Metal Terrain.

-=Battle 3, Start!=-
The dragoniers dodged out of the way of the go-carts driving on the rainbow roadway, and became surrounded by the enemy that pursued behind the racers. "Let's take the high ground before more things run us down!" DragonierMan called out to his fellow warriors before spreading his wings and vanishing from sight. The others followed, teleporting high into the sky so as to avoid more of their terrestrial obstacles. Defensive fields went up around the aerial fighters as they took a moment to survey the battlefield below. They circled above the center of this new battlefield, their eyes darting from target to target like raptors picking out the most juicy prey.

"Suzume, Aya, lay down suppression fire on those Satellites and God Hand. We can't let them shoot us out of the sky." Drago ordered. "I will summon reinforcements to deal with the DeathFire and ThunderDragon3. Magistrate will act as support; it won't last long on its own. I'll join in the cleanup."

With orders given the four split up. Drago drew his sword and threw it, as best as he could, behind the DeathFire. If his aim was true, the blade would thunk into the multi-hued highway, point down; sheathing into the hardlight-like pavement like the Sword in the Stone. A ghostly apparition of a knight appeared moments later, taking up the weapon in its hands as if it were meant solely for it. The being glared out of its helmet with two pinpricks of glowing, unearthly light before also vanishing into the ether like the dragoniers before it. It appeared moments later, drawing a line between the DeathFire and its ThunderDragon3 companion. It pointed its deadly blade at the two and drew back its arm, before thrusting forward in a flash. It speared the air with a gleaming blade, trying to skewer the two viruses like pigs.

As the Swordy3 drew back for a second strike, Magistrate summoned forth a magical bubble of energy around it. It would be another layer of protection, similar to that of its allies above. Suzume and Aya then let forth a barrage of heavy energy shells from their position high above the battlefield, attempting to burn the landscape and shatter stony defenses. They reached out their hands toward the viruses below and attempted to snatch their lives away with quite the fireworks show. Red-hot metal sprayed across the roadway, probably causing a hazardous future problem to any other go-carts' tires.

The Swordy3 thrust its sword once more at the DeathFire and ThunderDragon3, attempting to further wound its opponents. It's blade reflecting off the light of the street in a rainbow of colors as it tried to draw more viral blood and splatter it on the roadway. Meanwhile, Drago opened forth his fanged maw and let loose a torrent of lightning upon the same enemies that the twins were targeting, trying to finish them off. The bolts of energy lanced down like arrows launched from a massive warbow, spearing the air. If they were lucky, the durable Chaos viruses would be horribly mangled by the end of the first few minutes of the battle. If not, then this battle would be one of their greatest struggles yet.

Magistrate, Suzume, and Aya attempted to use their aerial maneuverability, and their great distance, to attempt to avoid the counterattack from below. Though with the DeathFire able to rain fire from above them, regardless of the height, they would also have to dodge and weave through a hailstorm of meteors. They attempted to navigate this treacherous space without succumbing to too many injuries. Truly this was a space opera.

While most of the viruses were still getting their bearings, after being left behind by the phantom racers, the Deathfire darted hurriedly behind the nearby dragon pot, raising its staff to begin showering the assembled dragoniers with a swarm a sparkling, start-pointed meteors that streaked down all around them. Drago and his crew were still calling orders, but despite this they managed to split up just in time to avoid the variety of stars that were otherwise destined for them.

One after another, they each arrived at their spread out positions, while the two satellites down below opened broad, sweeping beams that scanned the field and the skies for the targets they knew to be present. One of them managed to get a lock on Magistrate, while the other caught Suzume with the edge of its beam and locked firmly onto her location instead. Both Satellites shifted subtly, changing modes as they steamed, then launched skyward away from the race track.

Down below, with its quarries now far away, the many-armed God Hand flexed two of its fists, summoning a heavy ball and chain, then whirled it around and released the concussive weight in Drago's direction. DragonierMan was momentarily focused on his own plans, plunging a sword back down to the track, and the iron ball collided with his first layer of protection, deflected safely, though it scattered his barrier in the process.

The thrown sword struck down and was claimed by their trusty sword-knight. Across from it, the ThunderDragon peered out of its pot, locked its gaze on the only hostile immediately on the ground, and breathed a cloud of magnetic lightning across the roadway. The breath hit nothing, however, as the Swordy warped behind both it, and the DeathFire hiding behind its pot, and skewered them both with its blade.

The DeathFire shrieked, struck in the back by surprise, then moved again, rushing around the pot to hide on the other side this time, taking cover from the Swordy, and, with wave of its staff, summoning a large rock cube into the space where it had been; two things between it and the Swordy would work better, right? It didn't notice Magistrate taking an extra moment to give their summoned help some protection of its own, before having to turn her attention to the two Satellites. They were each in firing position now, and twisted their laser batteries towards Magi and Suzume respectively, releasing a cross-barrage of focused fire at each of them.

Both were ready to respond, fortunately, and despite the precision accuracy of the attacking viruses, Magistrate managed to avoid all but a single shot, which scrapped the edge of her barrier. Suzume dodged admirably as well, though her foe managed to landed three small bolts on her, eating away her barrier and almost breaking through her armour as well – though not quite. The two satellites settled back down to the race track again, their barrage expended, just in time for Aya and Suzume to go on the offence themselves. Suzume led with heavy magnum shots that damaged the race track as well as severely harming each of the satellites, and the Heavy God Hand; the latter, in particular, was stripped of its hardened outer armour, leaving the virus vulnerable to further attacks.

Aya's attacks followed up a moment later, slamming into the two Satellites and pushing them both precariously close to the edge of the race track. The God Hand was buffeted by the blow as well, but wasn't budged, such was its eight and presence. It looked up to its far-off foes, as though calculating. Drago wasn't about to give it time to think, and joined the twins with an electric assault of his own; it obliterated the Satellites completely, but by errant ill-fortune, the third beam wasn't quite accurate enough to strike true. It grazed above the heavy-set virus, sparking off its arms arms and crackling away without harming the virus. He had gotten its attention, however...

With a creak, it rolled across to the cube that the other insignificant viruses were cowering behind, and with two arms hefted the massive rock and lobbed it up. With two more hands, it swung around in a brutal haymaker that crashed into the cube and sent it rocketing up into the space above the track. More specifically, the space above the track which DragonierMan was still occupying. It shattered with a crash the reduced the RockCube itself to splinters and fragments, and shattered Drago's second layer of defence, though the casing had saved him from any further damage, thankfully. With its two remaining hands, the potent virus pointed at Drago, and at itself, then raised the hands as fists, along with four others.

Beside it, the ThunderDragon was focused on its won battle, swivelling its head around to blast another electrical breath at the Swordy that was attempting to slay it. This time its breath weapon washed over the knight successfully, but only managed to wear away the barrier that Magistrate had supplied. Unhurt, the knight plunged its blade forward again a moment later, piercing through the electric steam to stab both the dragon, and its companion evil sorcerer again.

A faint tingling sound chimed out as it did. At some point during its teleporting about, the Swordy seemed to have stopped on one of the disguised yellow panels. A small animated sprite had spent a few seconds scrolling through images above its helmet and had now stopped, displaying a small yellow star. The star had little vertical black eyes on it for some reason. Curious.

Primary Attack Damage/Effect: Trap(Enemy in Targeting Cursor) + Seeking: Movement (High-Alt) + Dodge + Lock-On + Nullify Invis
Primary Attack Accuracy: C
Primary Attack Description: Generates a targeting cursor that sweeps back and forth across the field, looking for a target. The cursor ignores decoys, objects, illusions, and invisibility. If the cursor intersects with an actual enemy, Lock-On is achieved, and the virus launches itself into the sky at High Altitude.
Secondary Attack Attack Damage/Effect: (15 Null + Seeking + Enhanced Accuracy) x 10 Shots
Secondary Attack Attack Accuracy: A
Secondary Attack Attack Description: When Lock-On is achieved, this virus fires a barrage of 10 highly accurate shots at its chosen target before landing in its original position. Accuracy debuffs on the Satellite while using this attack are reduced in severity by one rank.
Element: Null
Possible Rewards (Per Virus): Lock-On3, Zenny
Special: Immobile outside of its primary attack.
Special: This virus will repeat its primary attack until it finds a target, after which it will be able to use its secondary attack once.

God HandGod Hand (Gigas)

The Gigas are a clan of 8 foot tall viruses whose semi-humanoid bodies are made of a durable metal alloy. Gigas lack legs, and instead roll around on a 3 ton solid steel ball 2-feet in diameter that rests in a cupola. Rising from the top of the cupola is an alloy pillar that supports their metal bodies. The Gigas fight with their huge iron fists, which are provided their immese striking power by large barrel-like forearms. Their great-helm-like heads sit directly atop their shoulders with their blocky hinged jaw slanted in a sneer while their neon-red eyes radiate their hatred of all things Navigator. It is speculated that Gigas are a hacked derivative of the Bladia viruses spliced together with fragments of other viruses and a healthy dose of battlechip program data. This would account for their size, strength, and malicious nature. Where and how this was possibly accomplished is unknown. Gigas move at increased speed, but dodge at a slower than average rate. Gigas viruses prefer to pummel the life out of their foes with their bare hands (even though using the ball-and-chain in melee range would be more devastating), but if they find themselves surrounded or at a great distance to their target, they will use the ball-and-chain to perform a HammerToss. If an object blocks their path, they will either send it flying with a GigasArm attack, or smash it to dust before continuing on. Gigas will sink like the lead weights they are in liquid, and they know it. They will avoid liquid terrain entirely, if possible, and will never appear near these types of naturally occuring terrain for this reason. Only a Gigas' body is damageable. Striking a Gigas' cast iron arms will not damage the virus or the arms themselves, no matter what you hit them with. The Gigas' will not intentionally defend themselves with their arms, as they should be too busy pummeling or hurling something to bother. Do not abuse this.

ThunderDragon3ThunderDragon3 (ThunderDragon)

This high tier virus is only encountered after battle 5. A PotDragon's pot is stationary during battle, as it remains above the panel the virus appeared on until battle is over or the virus is deleted, and will not fall even if the panel below it should be destroyed. PotDragons have two main attacks, each geared towards either ground or aerial targets. When executed, the pot tilts or falls over, and the dragon charges at the enemy before looping back and returning to the pot. When threatened, they will duck into the pot, which is both indestructible and capable of shielding them from all damage and effects except those that manage to fly into the mouth of the pot. Even Beam Attacks and Blast damage won't leave a mark.

DragonierMan grinned as the God Hand put up its dukes and challenged the man to a tussle. "I accept your challenge!" the Navi bellowed out to the virus below, before teleporting down to the ground. The dragonier raised his meaty fists and nodded to his opponent to begin when ready. "This one is mine. You all can handle the rest."

Magistrate nodded and turned to the twins, drawing her sword. "Suzume and Aya, you will join me to delete the dragon. And you..." she said as she turned to the Swordy3. "You will deal with that... fiery creature. Understood?" she asked, and the knightly apparition raised his sword and nodded, before turning towards his sworn foe.

Suzume and Aya looked at each other, decided not to argue, and drew their own swords. The trio blinked out of existence for a moment, before reappearing again on the roadway, attempting to surround the ThunderDragon3. Defenses raised and weapons at the ready, the three of them lashed out with their sabers. With meaty swings of their muscular arms, they attempted to cut the lizard into bite-sized chunks with their heavy blades. Over and over again they struck at the creature, catching the dragon in the middle of a three-person blender.

The Swordy3 teleported up to the DeathFire and was about to strike, sword arm drawing back, but then took a second look at the small, yellow star floating slightly above its head. Curious, it reached up and attempted to pluck the animated sprite out of the air to see what it could do. Assuming the star didn't stop it from continuing with its mission, the Swordy3 would go back to hacking the DeathFire to pieces with its sharp sword. Changing the style of attack depending on the viral positioning of its foe. It was wounded enough that either style of attack would work just as well.

Drago, in a boxing stance with arms raised up in front of him like a shield, his own hands glowing with golden boxing gloves. He shifted and danced side to side as he awaited his opponent to send a punch his way. He would attempt to weave around the strike as he rushed in to deliver his own set of quick jabs. He went for a fast one-two punch combo to the face of the God Hand. Punches strong enough to K.O. anyone lesser than him.

With only a few stragglers left, Drago opted to indulge himself in a little one on one pugilism, with a massive six-armed solid metal monstrosity of a virus. What was life without a little spice, after all? As he teleported down to striking range with the God Hand, his summoned ally reached up to poke at the strange icon it had acquired. The star flashed once, before disappearing. In the same moment, a ripple spectrum of rainbow colours washed over the Swordy and continued to cycle; it felt... faster.

The dragon, meanwhile, was infuriated with its lack of success attacking the sword-wielding knight, and instead launched itself bodily from its pot, aiming to crash tackle the summon. When it hit, however, those watching were treated to the sight of the pot dragon thrown back immediately as though by some tremendous repulsion, further injured and smarting as it collapsed in coils and retracted again, slinking back into its pot. The Swordy hadn't even felt the impact, strangely.

No sooner had the dragon retreated, then the dragonier trio appeared all around its pot, swords ready; one they were in position, it was an unceremonious few moments that saw the dragon ruthlessly stabbed to deletion; business as usual for the girls, perhaps.

There were more interesting things going on a short distance away; Drago had landed and dodged in, dukes up as he wove towards his foe. The many-armed virus seemed to revel in this opportunity, flexing all of its arms at once, then beginning to swipe at the navi foolish enough o stand toe to toe with it. Drago was easily able to avoid the swinging fists of the virus, but at the last moment, these turned out to be mere feints, as one solid blow crept in with colossal power, just at the wrong moment; it caught Drago with enough force to crash through all of his defences and send the dragonier skidding back several feet as well; these chaos viruses packed a sever punch, if they got a chance, it seemed. The blow wasn't enough to slow Drago down, however, and he was quick to respond with a swift counterblow of his own, moving back into the opening left behind and delivering an even more crushing punch that the virus had managed. The strike might have almost been enough to stop the virus when it was fresh and unharmed; in its injured state, it stood no chance, and crumpled into scrap from the impact.

Somewhere off to the side, the Swordy, still flashing in a cycle of bright colours, delivered a slash that quieted the last virus before it could manage to summon down any more meteors – it seemed as though its attempts to take cover had been temporarily delayed by getting stuck to the magnetised section of the track. The last sword stroke brought this particular skirmish drew to a close, leaving the dragoniers to gather their spoils on the slightly damaged roadway amidst the stars.

Area: Netopia, Sharo, NAXA

HP: 300
Primary Attack Damage/Effect: Trap(Enemy in Targeting Cursor) + Seeking: Movement (High-Alt) + Dodge + Lock-On + Nullify Invis
Primary Attack Accuracy: C
Primary Attack Description: Generates a targeting cursor that sweeps back and forth across the field, looking for a target. The cursor ignores decoys, objects, illusions, and invisibility. If the cursor intersects with an actual enemy, Lock-On is achieved, and the virus launches itself into the sky at High Altitude.
Secondary Attack Attack Damage/Effect: (15 Null + Seeking + Enhanced Accuracy) x 10 Shots
Secondary Attack Attack Accuracy: A
Secondary Attack Attack Description: When Lock-On is achieved, this virus fires a barrage of 10 highly accurate shots at its chosen target before landing in its original position. Accuracy debuffs on the Satellite while using this attack are reduced in severity by one rank.
Element: Null
Possible Rewards (Per Virus): Lock-On3, Zenny
Special: Immobile outside of its primary attack.
Special: This virus will repeat its primary attack until it finds a target, after which it will be able to use its secondary attack once. When it changes targets, either of its own volition or its current target's death, or uses its Secondary Attack and lands in its original position, it must repeat its primary attack until it finds a new target.
Notes: Triggering invisibility or an illusion, or moving the Satellite forcefully after Lock-On is achieved does not allow a target to escape Lock-On. Lock-On is a shift in the Satellite's state, not a status inflicted on its target, and thus cannot be removed.

God HandGod Hand (Gigas)

The Gigas are a clan of 8 foot tall viruses whose semi-humanoid bodies are made of a durable metal alloy. Gigas lack legs, and instead roll around on a 3 ton solid steel ball 2-feet in diameter that rests in a cupola. Rising from the top of the cupola is an alloy pillar that supports their metal bodies. The Gigas fight with their huge iron fists, which are provided their immese striking power by large barrel-like forearms. Their great-helm-like heads sit directly atop their shoulders with their blocky hinged jaw slanted in a sneer while their neon-red eyes radiate their hatred of all things Navigator. It is speculated that Gigas are a hacked derivative of the Bladia viruses spliced together with fragments of other viruses and a healthy dose of battlechip program data. This would account for their size, strength, and malicious nature. Where and how this was possibly accomplished is unknown. Gigas move at increased speed, but dodge at a slower than average rate. Gigas viruses prefer to pummel the life out of their foes with their bare hands (even though using the ball-and-chain in melee range would be more devastating), but if they find themselves surrounded or at a great distance to their target, they will use the ball-and-chain to perform a HammerToss. If an object blocks their path, they will either send it flying with a GigasArm attack, or smash it to dust before continuing on. Gigas will sink like the lead weights they are in liquid, and they know it. They will avoid liquid terrain entirely, if possible, and will never appear near these types of naturally occuring terrain for this reason. Only a Gigas' body is damageable. Striking a Gigas' cast iron arms will not damage the virus or the arms themselves, no matter what you hit them with. The Gigas' will not intentionally defend themselves with their arms, as they should be too busy pummeling or hurling something to bother. Do not abuse this.

ThunderDragon3ThunderDragon3 (ThunderDragon)

This high tier virus is only encountered after battle 5. A PotDragon's pot is stationary during battle, as it remains above the panel the virus appeared on until battle is over or the virus is deleted, and will not fall even if the panel below it should be destroyed. PotDragons have two main attacks, each geared towards either ground or aerial targets. When executed, the pot tilts or falls over, and the dragon charges at the enemy before looping back and returning to the pot. When threatened, they will duck into the pot, which is both indestructible and capable of shielding them from all damage and effects except those that manage to fly into the mouth of the pot. Even Beam Attacks and Blast damage won't leave a mark.

HP: 300
Primary Attack Damage/Effect: 150 Elec + Ground Attack + Medium Area Magnet Terrain Change + Terrain Changer
