Despite his trying to take out his frustration by Digging through the Sand Tomb, he has difficulty getting through the softer soil than Amethyst does. Hyrem just prayed that Revenant's Pokemon didn't have a ground-shaking move that would provide no escape for them while they were still underground. Then he hears these harsh words: "You think you can move in the earth, and match my Pokemon? Well, let me tell you this, you have made a grave mistake. Your Pokemon shall feel my rage, as I send it through the land! Dugtrio, show them the power of your MAGNITUDE!!!"

While Magnitude wasn't as consistent as the dreaded Earthquake was, it had the potential to rival its sister attack, though how much power it actually put out was random. Hyrem's heart sinks further as the ground underneath him shook with a tremor that would register an 8.0 on the Richter scale. His Pokemon were obviously caught up in the attack, as he heard roaring and hissing of pain before the ground splits open, and the two reptiles are popped out of the ground. Sarkhan was able to land on his feet, but Amethyst is confirmed unconscious as she plops to the ground headfirst, the rest of her body following after her, resulting in a pile of coils. "Oh no, Amy!" Hyrem rushed over to where his Fang Snake lay crumpled as Sarkhan looked towards her. "Amy! Amy, are you OK?" he asked softly as he searched for her head. "Seeee..." he could hear a weak hiss at the same time he could feel her forked tongue tickle his hand before her head slowly emerged from the pile of coils. She's gonna kill me for this later, I know it, the thought creeped to the back of his mind, while Amethyst figured she only had herself to blame for encouraging Hyrem to let her take such a risk. At least now she knew not to use Dig to chase down a tasty Dugtrio!
Meanwhile, the Carver of Skulls looked at the scene and laughed. "This is what happens when amateurs get the idea to make art!" he jeered. "People end up getting hurt!" Hyrem was jolted back into the situation by his words, and as he looked up he could also see Krokorok out cold! That smug jerk didn't care that his own Pokemon had fallen in battle as well; in fact, Hyrem had the sneaking suspicion that he had Dugtrio take out his own teammate in the process, as if the Desert Croc was dead weight at that point! Sarkhan's blood started to boil along with Hyrem's, though he only cared about the fact he had the chance at a KO taken away from him. As a Dragon-type, he felt he deserved the chance to take out his opponent himself; at least he could still have the pleasure of knocking a few Dugtrio heads together, plus he'd be avenging Amethyst in the process! Oh, and did I mention Hyrem's blood started boiling? "You're one to talk, Revenant," he said bitterly, clenching his fist in anger. "What you call 'art' is what's really causing the pain and suffering around here! Enough of it that this Larvesta had to call me for help! Though I doubt you'd be sensitive to that, not after everything you've done. Just now, you had Dugtrio use an attack that took out Krokorok too! And you're not even batting an eye at that? Didn't look like you asked Krokorok whether or not he was fine with that! What if he still wanted to battle for you? You know what? Forget it. I've had it. I've had it with you. There's no way you're going to listen to me other than Sarkhan kicking Dugtrio's butt anyway, so let's do this!" He then pumps his fist in Revenant's direction before saying, "We're not going to let ourselves lose to the likes of you now!"
"Druuuuuudd!" Sarkhan adds his roar before rushing in and Crunching down on one of Dugtrio's heads with his powerful jaws. Dugtrio manages to Scratch Sarkhan off of its head like before, but that meant Scratching against Sarkhan's Rough Skin and suffering even more damage. Dugtrio also looked pretty tired, likely due to the Magnitude draining a good amount of energy from it, but Sarkhan looked like he could still take a beating and dish some of it out! Even so, Revenant still has a smirk on his face as he takes Krokorok back into its Pokeball. "Your Druddigon looks mean and nasty, but it won't be able to touch me! Don't get cocky kid, because the battle has really started now!"
"I was going to say the same to you!" retorted Hyrem. "You think Sarkhan looks scary now, just wait until he gets going!" He then turns to his Pokemon. "Amethyst, you did a great job, and you deserve some rest now," he said before returning his Seviper to her Luxury Ball where she'd be extra comfortable. "Here, Sarkhan, take this," he said to his Druddigon as he took out and opened a bottle of Fresh Water (1/10) and held it up to Sarkhan's face. "It was meant for Amethyst before. This way, she can still fight along with you." Sarkhan takes the bottle and looks at it seriously, planning on drinking it in his partner's honor. "All right then, let's show them just how much a Dragon can Rage! Then go ahead and do whatever you can to get your Revenge! Keep Amethyst in mind, there's no way she'll forgive us if we blow this one!"
"Drud!" grunts Sarkhan as he pumps his fist against his chest, ready to prove to the measly moles just how big of a mistake it was to cross a dragon like him.
My claimed Pokemon is...Seviper!
