If you are just starting your adventure, I am going to catch you in my next set of updates. Also, I will get everybody else in my update group after this batch.
You knew that facing down a type-disadvantage, especially one as serious as a Kingdra, was going to take some serious effort if you wanted to win. Going in the way of Byron, you think that a good offense is a good defense, and wearing out the Kingdra seems like a safe bet. Kingler crosses his claws together, and quite suddenly, he begins to glow a bright red color. The muscles under his exoskeleton begin to tense up and become hard, raising his defense. Kingdra sees this, and decides that his best bet would be....yeah, a physical dragon attack is still better at this point. But, Kingdra decides to boost up too, and spins around, causing a black and red electric cyclone around him, using the secret and ancient art of the DRAGON DANCE. He stops spinning, finding that his attack and speed stats have gone up somewhat. Throh still Bides his time in hisw aura, making sure that he will finally be able to deal some high damage to Kingdra.
Kingler then buffs up his other defense stat, making sure that he will not be able to take Kingdra's physical attacks, but also Kingdra's special attacks. Kingler goes through his memory and begins to forget things that are not of major concern, such as what he had for breakfast today and that doctor's appointment he had to go to tomorrow. After forgetting all of these superflous things that have no meaning or and value, casuing some extra mental padding room. Kingler feels that he is better able to take special attacks because of this. Kingdra doesn't attack again in this time, because he knows that his energy troubles are best solved as a one move thing, and not.....a three move thing. XD Kingler opens his larger claw, and breathes in through his mouth, before breathing out a cold wind through his claws at Kingdra, who grimaces at the coldness of it, but doesn't really take any adverse effects from it, thankfully having that speed boost from the Dragon Dance to counteract that speed drop from the Icy Wind. Throh is still biding his time over there, and hasn't taken anymore damage, and Kingler still looks pretty worn out, not having a chance to take a break. Kingdra is back in top form, with an attack boost to boot and will have the jump on Kingler next round.

Despite your initial confusion about the whole situation, you find that a man grabs your arm and dargs you off towards the dressing building. Sheldon follows in haste, and you look at the man, who is dressed in a gray uniform with the same symbol on it. He has a grip of iron, and is easily able to drab you around, despite being such a small guy. When the both of you get in front of the building where you were going to be dressed, the man lets go, and you can finally see his face in its entirety. Nothing special. Gray eyes, with no facial hair. His hair was brown and in a crew cut. He looked like just a normal person, completely undistinguishable in a crowd. "Well, you sure have found yourself at the right place, let me tell you. This organization is at the cusp of scientific advancement, and you sir, are going to play a part in it." You still have one of those confused looks on your face, as you didn't even want to sign up for this. "Don't worry about now wanting to be here. I thought like that at first, but truly, it is not too bad. The pay is always nice, and, if you find an artefact, you can get some big bonuses. Just try it out, you might find that you will like it here after all." The man opens to door and shuts you inside, causing the lights in the building to turn on.
You find yourself in a warehouse, and another man walks you to a closet with the number 306, and took out a stamp and pressed it on the locker, with the words, 'IN USE." "Your outfit is in there. If you are not dressed in five minutes, you will not get your pay for the day. So, get dressed as soon as possible." You open the locker to find a uniform just like the others wore. It was a beige/gray shirt with a collar and long sleeves, and has the logo of the tower and the letters LS on it. The pants were khaki like pants, probably so that one could dig at a sight easier, again beige, but with no logo on it. There didn't seem to be anybody around, though, they would probably check up on you in a couple of minutes.

You were intent to get the surprise on your opponents, and when your Pokemon were ready, they charged, and you made yourself known to the vandal, who just looked at you and laughed. It was actually kinda creepy, because he looked like he was just skin and bones, and it was like looking at a phantom laugh. "If you think that I am going to be easily beaten by a little kid like you, you have something else coming! My Pokemon my be good at art, but they are also terrors on the battlefield!" Just then, you here a screech of pain, and look up onto the mountain, and see that Amethyst has the Dugtrio clamped firmly in her jaws, and that she has a good grip one of the moles. "Dugtrio, don't worry about a little snake! Scratch it off of you!" The two other moles move around Amethyst's head, and begin to furiously rake her head with their hidden claws that would normally be sued to dig through the ground. Amethyst hissed in pain before letting go, and tenderly addressed the wounds on her face. Dugtrio took this oppurtunity to DIG into the ground, causing him to dissapear from view. Sarkahn was charging at the Krokorok, who looked surprised to see such a huge hulking figure charging towards it, with a light blue ball of energy between its claws. "Alright Krokorok, don't think that you are going to be beaten by that oaf! Give it a taste of your Dark Pulse, and then Dig into the ground to escape!"
Krokorok faced down Sarkahn, and opened his mouth to show a spiraling cascade of dark energy inside, before launching the beam at Sarkahn. Sarkahn was too bust charging to make any attempt at charging, and takes the beam to the chest, causing his to grunt in pain. But, he does not actually flinch, and throws the ball of energy at Krokorok, who gets a shocked look on his face at the fact that Sarkahn didn't flinch, and takes the FOCUS BLAST to the gut, causing him to roar in pain from the attack. The vandal looks in shock that the attack worked, before he smirked as Krokorok dug into the ground, and stayed underground along with Dugtrio. With no targets to attack, both Amethyst and Sarkahn did not know what to do. "Do you see know? Did you really think that you were the first ones to try and stop the two of us!? Boy, you have just hit the surface! Now, it is time to go underground! Underground with the Revenant, carver of skulls!"
What will you do?
Deciding that an imprint in the grass was going to be a better lead that trail of candy wrappers, you follow the trail on the riverbank. The trail was pretty well dug in, which actually was kinda of odd. They were not very heavy, but, the grass probably was wet at some point. You follow the trail and find that....you were right back where you started in the first place, next to the lady who was looking for the Gulpin. "Oh, hello, is there anything new you could tell me?" There wasn't, but she looked at the trail you had followed and giggled a little bit. "Oh...yeah, I tried following that to, but it leads to nowhere. At least, nowhere where he could be. It just stops for no reason."
It was odd, but she wished you farewall and good luck in finding her Gulpin before you walk the trail back to the candy wrapper trail. Since it was your only lead, you decide to follow that lead as well.
You come to a stop next to a picnic blanket, and find an old man sitting there with a saxophone next to him. He looked up at you with eyes that were filled with compassion and knowledge that only old age could give you. "Are you looking for something little one? You sure do look like you are looking for something important." You tell him that you are looking for a lady's Gulpin who had run away from her for a unknown reason. "Well, little girl, I am not sure what a Gulpin is to be honest, I never traveled to the Hoenn region at all. But, I did see this odd Pokemon come by, and it was sure hungry. It was a green, blob like thing with a big yellow crest on it. Boy, did that thing eat. I have brought lunch and dinner for today, and it ate my entire lunch. But, I don't really care about that. I made the little tyke happy because of it, and that is all I need. I think he went into the river, probably to have some fun in the water. He probably went over the river to the otherside of the riverbank infact. Hope you find him!"
