The men laugh loudly, looking at each other. The one on the right, who has a moustache, looks down at you. "Fight for its freedom...my boy...that delightful little Shadow Pokémon is
his Phanpy. He desired a stronger monster, and that is what he got." they both laugh again. "I...I didn't mean it like this!" Sam begins to cry again. This only makes the men laugh harder, and the one on the left, who is bald, pulls a machine from the inside of his coat. "You don't want it? Fine, we'll take it!" The machine launches a weird Pokéball at the Phanpy, and it is immediatly sucked inside. The man grabs it, pockets it, and both the men turn to walk away. Sam just cries harder, unable to do anything about this. You yell out for them to stop, and they turn around slowly. "You want to get this boy's Pokémon back? You don't have a chance. Stantler, go!" The elk-esque Pokémon is released in a flash of light, pawing the ground, scuffing it up. The other man grabs a ball from his belt, and with a cry of "Croconaw!" the water type appears, snarling. "Fight us then boy." they say in unison.
What is your decision?
Kuraiyuuga smiles, nodding at your orders, before getting prepared. Spreading her legs apart, she goes DBZ style, the flame forming in between her hands. With a cry, she throws it forcefully at the forest, and the attack hits a tree, lighting it ablaze. Shinjuu follows through with his part of the plan, flapping his wings as the bag of powder at his neck starts to glow. Soon, lines of silver form inside the gust that Shinjuu is producing, growing stronger as the Silver Powder at his neck explodes open, sending the powder flying to mix with the wind.
The attack fans the flames, which crackle and leap to another tree. Smoke floats toward the cieling of the rather large room, and Kuraiyuuga and Shinjuu stay still, waiting. The flames continue to spread, more trees catching fire, and still nothing happens. Then, in an explosion of fire and wood splinters, the few trees that caught fire are methodoically destroyed as the Scyther furiously slashes at them. Buzzing forward, Shinjuu beings to swipe his claws at Scyther, keeping him busy while Kuraiyuuga once again adopts the DBZ-esque stance, electricity beginning to crackle between he hands.
Scyther and Shinjuu dance madly in the air, Scyther's scythes and Shinjuu's claws slashing mercilessly up, down, and sideways, but few hits get in. Without warning, Scyther ducks a Fury Cutter from Shinjuu, spins in mid-air, and delivers a vicious kick to Shinjuu's face which sends him flying into a tree. Kuraiyuuga grimaces at this, then launches her attack, the electrical energy pounding through the air. Scyther turns, and raises his scythes gaurdingly as he is struck. His form is outlined by the electrical energies, dealing good damage to him. Scyther lowers his blades, and glares at your Kirlia, before disappearing and reappearing right next to the now-startled Psychic-type. He deals a vicious headbutt to her stomach, causing her to bend over in pain, before flapping his wings and sending a weaker version of Shinjuu's Silver Wind into her back, sending her face first into the ground.
With a malicious laugh, the Scyther spins on the spot, seeming to disappear. Suddenly, his voice echoes throughtout the room. "Issss that the bessst you've got, trainer...?"
What will you do now?
Shinjara & Jon Jen:
Zangoose continues its mad dance, beginning to whirl madly in one spot, creating a light wind. Soon, the wind picks up speed, and without warning the two attacks that were hanging on the ceiling float down, and enter the whirling vortex that Zangoose created. He stops spinning, and you see the Poison Gas
and Stun Spores
clinging close to his body. The Poison travels up one arm, the Stun spores the other, until he is holding two items! He grins maliciously, and twists his arms. The two attacks amazingly become more solid than they once were, and form swords. He takes up a battle stance
, a sword of Poison and a sword of Stun Spores...
Dingo, in response to this odd display, splits into two Shedinja, he doesn't have the energy for many more. He braces himself just in time, as the Zangoose charges in, swords held combat ready. Zangoose begins an intracite display of swordsmanship, the 'blades' moving up, down, and across almost faster than human eyes can follow. Dingo cries out as he is struck, his double vanishing, but continues to brace against the attacks, not allowing himself to faint. All this time, Rini has been sitting back, before finally Yawning
, small pink bubbles drifting across, hitting the Zangoose, but he shows no signs of backing off. Rini realizes that if she doesn't do something soon, Dingo would fall. She begins concentrating heavily, lights beginning to shine somewhere on her body, before a line of pure energy zooms from her open mouth, going through Dingo and planting itself squarly on Zangoose's chest.
Rini grins, knowing what's coming next. She gives an almighty cry, and something flashes down the line, growing brighter and brighter with each inch, before striking Dingo. Dingo shudders, but the light doesn't stop there. It slams into Zangoose, making him pause mid-strike. He shakes, not expecting this sudden move. He tries to strike once more, but his muscles give out on him, and he sinks to one knee. His strength drained by the thoughtfulness of Rini, who knew that she could also transfer energy to Dingo, he glares upwards at the slightly re-energized bug. He struggles to try and get to his feet, but his energy is draining quickly, and he collapses onto both knees. Too caught up in this strange display, neither of you notice the Grunt rushing towards you, gun raised...
"ZTOP RIGHT THERE, YOU RUFFIAN!" The Frenchman yells out. Standing next to him is a tired looking Blastoise, and a Togetic, who smiles at the two of you. The Grunt ignores him, and the Frenchman mumbles. Togetic gives a cry, and starts to glow. Soon, its eyes follow suit, and the man is surrounded in a hellish purple colour. With a cry, the gun flies from his hand, skidding into the cave you exited earlier. Togetic's eyes flash, and the man is thrown forcefully into the chairs, creating one hell of a noise, knocking him clear out. Togetic stops glowing, and stares at the Zangoose.
"You two 'ave done well zo far...I thank you both for your wonderful 'elp." The Frenchman says, also looking at the Zangoose. "And, I don't think zat Rocket deserves such a fine creature. Would either of you like 'im?" He asks. "Toget, release this creature from it's...bondage...if you would." Togetic nods, glows again, and a Pokéball floats from where the man crashed. With a short "To!", the ball is crushed into dust. He does it again, and again, the Pokéballs for the Magmar, Vileplume, and Rhyhorn being crushed, after they were released from their confines. "Make your decision quickly, for we must 'urry. I fear that my Lourve is in danger." He says. He then takes on more look at the Zangoose, who is looking at the two of you...almost pleadingly.
Level Up each for Dingo and Rini!
What will you do?
Quilava Plush: (Welcome back ^^)
The Koffing bellows his name in defiance of the Azumarill, floating off the ground higher. Kenji breathes in deep, and then blows out the cold wind, freezing a Water Gun in its tracks. The Azumarill is covered by a thin layer of ice, before shaking vigorously, sending small icicles and other particles of ice flying. It coughs, and rushes forward, curling into a tight ball. It bounces once on the floor, into the air, meeting Kenji head on. The Koffing grunts in pain, but is not that hurt. He spits out a Smokescreen from all the holes on his body, the smoke covering the area that Kenji and Azumarill are fighting in. "Azumarill!" The Aqua Grunt calls out. "Use your Swift!"
You wait, as Kenji enters the smokey field, and hear whistling as the Swift flies from every direction in the smoke, small multicoloured stars flying past your face, over your head, between your legs. Each time is a near miss, and finally, wit ha cry, the stars stop. A sick-sounding gloop is heard, and the smoke begins to clear. When it does clear, Kenji is floating above a fainted Azumarill covered in gross Sludge. "NO!" The Aqua yells, returing his Pokémon. Kenji grins, and floats happily next to you, as the Wartortle flies past the Aquan in front of you, creating a huge crack in the wall. The Aqua members run from the fight, back into the passageway they came from.
Maxie looks to you, and sees Kenji is unharmed. "Nice battling." He says to you, picking up a flashlight a Grunt dropped. He grabs another, handing it to you. "Well, shall we continue?" he asks, indicating the darkened passageway. "I must warn you though, it'll be dangerous down there. I won't force you to come with me." He says.
