Tucker faced off against Ash with his Arcanine and Swampert. Although he was defeated by Ash, he held a strong start for a while with his Pokémon's teamwork and strategy, including the use of the "Fusion of Fire and Water", an advanced combination which involved trapping the opponents in a water and fire whirlwind. Throughout the battle, May was very impressed by Tucker's showmanship skills and noted that his battle with Ash had some similarities to a Contest Battle. She later adapted his combination technique into her own battling style during the Kanto Grand Festival.
The knowledge gleaned from these intercepted messages slowly filtered into the Fire Caste's military doctrine. Wherever the Ork glyphs for "Boss," "Mek" or "Dok" appeared on an Ork vehicle, the Hunter Cadres would prioritise their destruction with concentrated Hammerhead fire and XV88 Broadside Battlesuit support, slowing Ork response times to a crawl. Though the T'au could not form the syllables of Ork speech, O'Shoh's Earth Caste allies cut audio snippets of Orkish challenges and insults into the comms networks that the invaders had looted from fallen T'au; delivering the right Orkish insults at the right time, O'Shoh drove a wedge of dissent between every clan and tribe roaming the desert, sparking a series of minor wars in the process. Within a year, the greenskinned beast that had invaded Arkunasha was chewing on its own tail. O'Shoh's tactics had distracted the Orks to such an extent that T'au forces were able to get food and water to the people trapped within the bio-domes and free the remains of the Arkunashan Fire Caste, further bolstering their ranks.
Ghoul's Gorge, named for the cannibalistic atrocity that had taken place there between two rival Kroot kindreds, was a vast open canyon that howled with fierce desert winds. Battle erupted when a vast horde of Orks sought to push through the gorge and fall upon the bio-domes beyond. In their midst was a giant drill-armed walker designed to breach the transplastic shells of the domes, as much a pagan idol as a weapon of war. Farsight had no inclination to see if it would work. He drove his teams in close, harrying the Ork column from above whilst they were still bottle-necked in the gorge. As plasma fire rained down, shimmering domes flickered into existence above each mob, lit by the energies cascading across their bubble-like surfaces. Even the drill-titan Stompa was protected by a force dome, the Heavy Rail Rifle rounds of Farsight's Broadside teams simply disintegrated on impact. The ensuing battle was tortuous for Farsight's T'au. They could not abandon their charges in the bio-domes, and yet their firepower was all but useless against the flashing bubble fields of the Orks. The impetuous young Commander Brightsword mounted a close-range Battlesuit attack on the rearmost Ork mob; he and his team quickly established that the only way to circumvent the bubble fields was to get inside them -- placing the T'au just where the Orks wanted them to be.
As all-out war unfolded in the skies above, the monstrous tracked transports of the Imperial Guard and the giant walkers that stomped in their vanguard simply ignored the best efforts of the Air Caste. Their crackling shields and thick hides were all but impenetrable to anything short of Railgun fire, and they knew it. The vast metal transports settled in great wallowing clouds of steam before unfurling their ramps like broad, flat tongues, disgorging regiment after regiment of soldiers from their gullets. Strike forces of T'au moved to intercept, but wherever they hove into view, the immense Imperial Titans that flanked each deployment ramp would unleash firepower so intense that the Hunter Cadres were forced to take evasive action of their own. The massive machines were demigods of battle; each was an avatar of destruction given form on a scale undreamt of, even by the most ambitious of the Earth caste's Battlesuit designers. Here was Mankind's warlike deity made manifest, just as the effigy-walkers of the primitive Orks represented their own belligerent gods. Under the protection of these god-machines, endless ranks of Imperial soldiery marched. Elsewhere, thousands of ponderous Imperial tanks churned the planet's indigo grass into thick mud as they rumbled into attack formations. Farsight's Hunter Cadres were ready to engage, but even the most veteran Fireblade was forced to admit that the sheer scale of the task was bewildering. In the space of a single day, the Imperium had bulldozed a series of beachheads onto Dal'yth with little more than faith and brute force. Despite sustaining heavy losses to long-range suppression fire, they were slowly converging on the capital hexodomes central to the planet's eastern hab-states.
Scant hours later, there came reports of a series of devastating attacks that had been made under cover of darkness. The tactics employed were O'Shaserra's, no doubt; Commander Farsight would recognise them anywhere. The Imperium's immense phalanxes were flailing blindly, lashing out in all directions as their outlying vehicles were destroyed one after another by point blank fusion fire. As soon as their primitive vision-sensors had been opened wide to scry the Dal'ythan night, O'Shaserra had released bursts of multi-spectral light that blinded her prey even more effectively than the pitch darkness of the plains. Confusion reigned around the perimeter of each Imperial column as carefully-placed tank killers hemmed in the great mass of each vehicle company. Spearheads of trundling battle tanks and super-heavy ordnance split off from the main mass wherever they could, blasting a path through the Magnorail tunnels that blocked them in order to pursue the signal ghosts of this new threat; in which they failed.
Akitaru informs Shinra that he will be participating in an upcoming rookie competition, alongside a new recruit, which makes Shinra excited, as he sees it as a chance to meet the man who had saved his life. Shinra bumps into Arthur and gets into a fight with him. When Takehisa approaches the two, he orders Maki to fight the new recruits. Shinra is defeated by Maki's Second Generation ability limiting his own powers. After eating at Ippudo Ramen, Shinra is given a battleaxe to deal with an Infernal in the Iriya District in a domestic setting. Upon arrival, Akitaru pulls the two aside for disobeying his orders to conceal their weapons and explains his reasoning. After their conversation, a burst of flames emerges from the apartment, prompting the force to storm the building and find the Infernal. Arthur volunteers to put the man out of his misery, much to Shinra's confusion, and impales his core. Immediately after, the ceiling begins to collapse and Shinra watches on as Akitaru risks his life to save a family photograph for Mikako. Afterwards, he apologizes to the man for not being of any help during the mission.
Users can create, shape, and manipulate ice, water frozen into a solid state. As an elemental power, cryokinesis has a nigh-limitless number of uses, only limited by the user's imagination and their natural limits. Fundamentally, users would be able to generate ice through various means, such as lowering the temperature of the surrounding air until solid ice forms or by freezing nearby water sources. They could release and channel this ice in the form of ice beams that freeze whatever it comes into contact with, or extremely rigid and durable ice walls and domes that can be used offensively and defensively. There's also the capacity to use ice in order to freeze one's opponents to death by trapping in ice that slowly kills their cells or shattering them to pieces once frozen.
The following morning, Megatron emerged from the Decepticon headquarters to find a life-size statue of Devastator accompanied by a letter. The message was from Optimus Prime, and it explained that the statue was a peace offering, as the Autobots had agreed to surrender to the Decepticons. Gleeful at this turn of events, Megatron ordered the Autobot prisoners to be brought before the statue. The statue turned out to be an Autobot ruse, however, and from within it burst forth Autobot reinforcements. Megatron lead the Decepticons in a counter-offensive. He first deployed the Decepticon jets to counter the Autobots' own aerial warriors. The battle took a turn for the worse for the Decepticons when Rumble's earthquake-inducing abilities backfired, and many Decepticons were swallowed up by the earth. Deciding to end the battle once and for all, Megatron fired his fusion cannon at Optimus Prime. But Optimus used a reflective piece of metal to deflect Megatron's beam back at him! Hit by his own attack, Megatron crumpled to the ground, defeated. The Autobots' Secret Weapon
Megatron then entered the fray and fired his Black Hole Burn attack from his fusion cannon, narrowly missing Optimus Prime but vaporizing Hooligan in the process. Prime fought fiercely but Megatron began to take the upper hand in battle.
Ignoring Prime to focus on some more long-term plans, Megatron made Doctor Mindbender use the SPS Satellite to create large amounts of energon. However, his party was soon crashed when Optimus Prime attacked the facility and used the energon to power up. Finding the situation unsalvageable, Megatron tried to escape while Prime was busy with Soundwave and Reflector. G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers #5 He ran right into G.I. Joe, but was unimpressed with their firepower and fought back with his energon mace, possibly killing Mercer. Things quickly turned for the worse for Megatron; his arm was heavily damaged by a stray beam from the malfunctioning SPS Satellite, he was pounded by G.I. Joe's rockets, and Optimus Prime caught up to him and beat him to a pulp. Prime then stole his fusion cannon and used it to destroy the satellite and smack Megatron across the jaw, defeating him and ending the battle. The Decepticon was disassembled, but unbeknownst to the victors, his remains were seized and experimented upon by the United States government. G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers #6 2b1af7f3a8
