While the attack once again failed to produce confusion in Kitty, it didn’t even manage to throw the feline off balance, her tail acting as a wonderful balancing device. It was time to put Noriko’s plan into action as the Skitty wagged her tail and winked in the most charming and loving manner, creating a load of little hearts that hit Hoothoot right to the face. Maybe it was pure luck or female intuition but Noriko’s plan payed off: the male Hoothoot stared at Kitty from mid-air, fluttering his wings and making very lovey-dovey sounds.
Noriko looked at Kitty. The little feline had on her face the most predatory look Noriko had ever seen. Hoothoot seemed to be too infatuated to even notice the dangerous licking of lips and tensing that was usually followed by a pounce for the yarn…or the kill. Victory was too close to let go of now!
“We’ve got this in the bag, Kitty! Use Tackle and Incinerate once more!” After watching the battle unfold, Noriko decided to take her chances and threw a Pokéball [4/5] at Hoothoot with one hand while crossing her fingers with the other.
