Adventure Face-Off: Red/Blue Version (Season 2)
Aight, it's been a while, but it's back: The original Adventure Face-Off that inspired so many spin-offs. Now that summer's begun, I have finally found the time to reopen my favorite face-off. The reason the last one closed wasn't because of a lack of posters (though that may have contributed to my doubts about reopening this place). It was because I just didn't have time to run this thread. So, without further ado, here's Season 2 of the Adventure Face-Off: Red/Blue Version.
- Each round is really a small part of a story. The way the story goes is affected by the outcome of each face-off. So really, the rules will change every time the story is updated.
- Please don't spam up the thread. Make sure you read the story and know what's going on before you post.
- Feel free to make comments while waiting for the next round to be posted. One post is required after each round so I don't double-post when I put up the next part of the story.
- I accept PMs not only to request past story parts, but also for your comments and criticism. I appreciate such things, as well as your own story and FO ideas. I won't gurantee to use all of your ideas, but I will still read and consider them.

THE STORY: (If you would like to read the entire story, or merely a part you may have missed, PM me to make a request and I'll send it to you.)
With her worries gone, Serina steps confidently onto the field. Another girl about her age looks back at her.
Announcer: The next battle is Susan versus Serina!
Susan: Beedrill! Let's go!
Serina: Butterfree! We can do it this time!
And right she is. Butterfree easily defeats Beedrill within minutes.
Susan: *stunned* Oh... *recalls Beedrill*
Serina: Yes! We did it! *recalls Butterfree*
Chris's next battle just so happens to be directly after Serina's. He and another boy take the field.
Announcer: The next battle is between Chris and Sam!
Chris: Aight, Eevee, let's do this.
Sam: Magneton, come on!
Eevee quickly takes out Magneton. It begins to look like Chris and Serina will dominate the entire tournament. More and more trainers are eliminated, until just 4 remain.
Announcer: The first semifinal battle will be between Serina and Caroline!
Serina: Oh! It's that Tauros girl who beat Eric...
Caroline: Tauros! Let's do this!
Serina: Okay, Butterfree, come on out! Tackle!
Butterfree performs the move immediately after being released. Tauros is surprised and confused, and suddenly angry. Snorting and shaking it's head wildly, it charges.
Serina: *thinking fast* Butterfree, fly over in front of that wall!
Caroline: Get it!
Tauros charges at top speed straight towards Butterfree, who is hovering at the edge of the stadium. Right before impact, though, Butterfree flys away. Tauros slams head-on into the wall. The battle is over, just like that.
Serina: Nice, Butterfree. Come on back.
Announcer: The next semifinal is between Chris and Danielle!
Chris: Alright, Eevee. This is our chance to show everyone who the bext cousin is.
Danielle: Oh, Christopher dear! Sorry it had to come to this, but we'll be going home with the win! Right, Jigglypuff? *throws pokeball in the air*
Eric: Eevee, let's start this thing off with a Quick Attack!
Danielle: *casually* Jigglypuff, inflate!
Jigglypuff takes a large gulp of air and begins to swell up like a balloon. Eevee makes impact- then bounces right off, flying high in the air and hitting the ground hard..
Jigglypuff: Jiiiii-galee-puff, jiggaleeee, jigglypuff....
Eevee: *stumbles, then falls to the ground, exhausted*
Danielle: Now, Pound!
Eevee is sent in the air once more, once again hitting the ground hard. Shaking it's head, the weakened pokemon looks up.
Chris: Good, Eevee, we've still got a chance! Bite!
Eevee bites down hard on Jigglypuff's arm, causing the pink pokemon to flinch.
Danielle: Jigglypuff, let's just finish this!
Chris: Eevee, get away from there!
Eevee runs back to the opposite side of the field.
Chris: Let's just try a Quick Attack!
Danielle: Gyro Ball!
Serina: What's Gyro Ball? *checks pokedex*
Dex: Gyro Ball. Battle Type: Steel, Catergory: Physical. A ball of energy that increases in power if the user's speed is lower than the opponent's.
Eevee, already in mid sprint, cannot slow down. The powerful Gyro Ball hits dead-on.
Announcer: Looks like Eevee is down for the count!
Chris: *stunned* No...
Danielle: *laughs* Better luck next time, little cousin!
Eric: Oh man, poor Chris...
Announcer: We will now take a short break before beginning the finals!
Two figures are seen sneaking around the stadium lobby. The attendant, busy watching Chris's battle on a huge television screen, doesn't notice when they sneak inside.
Gorman: So now what?
Camille: Just follow my lead.
The devious Rockets find a room guarded by two men. When the approach, the guards straighten up.
Guard 1: Sorry, no entrance beyond this point.
Gorman: Thanks for the warning, but we don't really need it. *throws pokeball* Go, Nidorino!
Camille: Come on out, Raticate!
Guard 1: Hey, whoah!
Guard 2: Rhyhorn!
Guard 1: Marowak!
Gorman: Crap, this might not work out the way we planned...
Camille: Raticate, Hyper Fang!
Raticate bites down hard on Marowak's head. Marowak flinches, but quickly knocks off the giant rat with it's club.
