Skarmory's attack missed, but no worries- the trainer called back his pokemon and released a different one, this time with an advantage over the Skarmory. The Vulpix made its way onto the field as Skarmory flapped its wings to quell its speed.
"Veer up!" Rich yelled as Dom ordered the Fire Spin onto his pokemon. Skarmory flapped its wings to regain its speed and took a sharp turn upwards, the spinning embers failing in his tailwind. By the time he stopped his ascent he would merely be a silhouette to untrained eyes, and against the light is where he waited for his trainer's next order. However, Rich was busy listening to his challenger's orders.
Dom had made a mistake- Rich's ears, trained to hear the different levels in pounding music and still make out words around him clearly heard his orders to attack when Skarmory came too close. While Skarmory's special attack wasn't something to be particularly proud of and his special moves limited, if the Vulpix was planning on attacking only while he was near they had little to worry about.
"Alright, Skarmory, use Metal Sound and follow it up with a wicked Flash Cannon!"
From up in the air Skarmory inhaled deeply and, feeling the air press against his metallic lungs, emitted a terribly metallic scream toward the Vulpix that reverberated throughout the arena's acoustics. The steel in his throat and beak vibrated with the sound, adding an eerie ring to the sound on top of it. Hopefully the Vulpix's special defense would have been lowered, making up for Skarmory's low special attack and rendering his next move more powerful.
Skarmory seemed to freeze in midair in preparation for his Flash Cannon. He spread his wings wide and collected light in his body, glowing a faint red while the area around him darkened slightly before sending the pulsing bulbs of ultraheated light at his opponent.
