IMPORTANT: Please note i work monday through fridays from 6am until 5pm EASTERN time.. ::As you step through the gym doors you instantly feel...paranoid...as if your being watched.. The lights are off and the roof of the gym is open exposing the night sky. The star filled sky reflects off the tiles of the gym like glass and you notice that for some reason oddly in this location the moonlight is barely shining through leaving very limited visibility..you look up and notice that the moon is oddly half eclipsed. "Is this some kind of illusion or is this really happening?" you think to yourself recounting your previous steps before entering the gym noting that the night sky was clear and moon was in full vision before entering. Paranoia increases and your chest tightens as you see a shadow of a man start moving in the distance walking towards you:: "This is no trick, This is my domain...names Ravana..PerfectPokemon current Dark type gym leader incase you havent noticed....I assume you didnt come here in the middle of the night to chat" the male figure said calmly as he steps partially into a sliver of moonlight shining down from the starry night sky. My gym rules are simple...im not too picky about challengers and their desires.. all i ask is you dont use that wretched fairy CLEFABLE in this battle..i also understand the common fear normal people have of darkness but i ask that you do not abuse any attempt to illuminate the shadows..simply fight through your fear (please dont abuse typing or use more than 3 super effective attacks spread throughout your team I.E. if all your pokemon have something that hits dark types super effectively dont be lame and use them on more than 3 of your pokemon) Lastly..only the most common used pokemon may be used since you are a challenger..I however, may or may not have a trick up my sleeve for you but ive solidified my spot amongst the void and it has its perks...after all i never said getting this badge would be easy, did i?" Your heightened sense of paranoia gets worse as you see a spot behind the moonlit trainer become darker..almost void like..as time and space seem to warp inside the void you see a single blue eye peering at you and move behind the trainers shoulder as the moonlight reveals a dark floating creature with seemingly white hair, a single blue eye and a red collar. You start hearing whispers and look around quickly trying to see in the darkness where they are coming from in the darkness enveloped columns to no avail. The man grins as he watches you panic and continues in a slightly amused tone "Fear not child..it only likes to watch...this will all be over soon..if you can manage to get the sentence out..i just need you to say the words 'I challenge you for your badge' we can start...." You manage to utter the words required and the man steps forward fully illuminated by a pillar of moonlight that seems to have appeared out of nowhere as the man continues to grin. "Well then...lets get started shall we?" The man draws a green and black pokeball from his belt and suddenly the whispers grow louder but still the words are incomprehensible...as you retrieve your pokeball from your belt loop moonlight shines on you like a spotlight and the white haired blue-eyed void laughs menacingly while all too suddenly you hear a terrifying bellow throughout the gym that rattles your insides and causes you to instantly become nauseated and weak. As your vision blurs a MASSIVE draconian looking creature launches itself from behind the gym leader into the cool night sky gazing sinisterly on the battlefield with piercing blue glowing eyes. You throw your pokeball hoping to get the battle over as fast as possible.. SIDE NOTE IN ALL SERIOUSNESS: please only use Perfectpokemon's OU tier and below for items and pokemon selections when making your team to challenge me. Using a banned pokemon will result in an instant loss and you will be blacklisted permanently and unable to rechallenge me for 72 hours and will remain blacklisted until you battle me without the pokemon in your team.
