Bill analyzed the situation for a moment. Something was very amiss here, first a robotic voice trying to "initiate [a] battle" then suddenly the Petilil suddenly attacked. When Bill saw that Solar Beam he was about to call out to his Blastoise, when suddenly it disappeared, leaving both Silver and Bill in shock. The powerful grass-attack dissipated into a weak Water-attack, which Silver dodged with ease. "Well, this is interesting," Bill stated.
He thought about the situation, if this "reverse mode" as it was called was still active, then ice type attacks may not have any effect, in fact, Bill had no idea what to expect. He commanded, "We better stick with the attacks with standard effectiveness, for now, Silver. First use Zen Headbutt. Follow it up with Rapid Spin, finally use Pay Day." This was going to be a weird battle, and Bill hoped that this would at least keep things...as normal as possible.
