"No!" Katsu yelled out in concern as he watched Flandre rocket through one of cabin's windows as a result of an unexpectedly strong attack from Hugh. He couldn't help but feel guilty that his misjudgment regarding the remaining strength of their opponent had resulted in her receiving such a punishing blow, and the fact that Kiba had narrowly avoided his demise after a similar mistake earlier that day didn't boost his confidence in his skills as a trainer any, either.

"Who does that bird think he's kidding? There's no way Hugh can win against us. Not after the beating Flandre gave him...", Katsu tried to assure himself as he and Kiba glared at the ones in question, ready to continue the fight.
It was then that the door of the cabin suddenly was blown open by a flurry of Bullet Seeds which struck Hugh, and quickly had all eyes turning to see who was responsible for the sudden attack. It was Andrew's Ludicolo, Mirror, and to Katsu's relief, Flandre was with him, albeit barely able stand. She soon found some relief, however, as Mirror passed her some healing energy he had stored with his Leech Seed earlier, her pained expression switching in an instant to one that made it clear as day that she was extremely ticked off about the kick she had just received. Mirror didn't seem to be in much better of a mood, and it was only natural, considering how betrayed he must've still felt as a result of Hugh's earlier actions.
"It's good to see you again, Mirror! Here to help us deal with this backstabber, I presume?", Katsu said with enthusiasm. He had been rather concerned about the Ludicolo, having heard or seen nothing of him ever since he'd been taken aboard the Ruby Chatot. Exactly why the water type had made such a sudden appearance without his trainer, was still a mystery to him, though. "Perhaps Flandre had the sense to free him?" he wondered, as he turned his attention back to Hugh.
The Machoke had bulked himself up in preparation for what was likely to be his last stand; at least, Katsu planned to make it that way. The battle had dragged out long enough for his tastes, and he didn't feel like putting Flandre at risk any longer, so he decided to do something he wished he had done from the beginning.
"Kiba, I think you deserve some payback for that kick Hugh gave you.", he stated to the Electrike, who looked rather pleased by his trainer's decision. "Zap him with your Charge Beam, then unleash a Thunderbolt on him. Throw in a Shock Wave if that doesn't do the trick."
Katsu then turned to Flandre, who was staring at him expectantly. "Flandre, there's no need to push yourself any harder. Kiba and Mirror will finish this.", he ordered the Charmander, who looked shocked by his words, and expressed her disapproval vocally. "Well, I guess this was her battle up until now...", he reasoned to himself before changing his mind due to the fact that he hated to displease any of his Pokemon.
"...Okay, fine. You can blow some Embers at him. Just stay back, alright?"
