Those words resonated with Hugo as he searched the ruins. He was excited what they might encounter. Unown were very mysterious creatures, and that was about the extent of his understanding about them. But to be fair, that was a consensus among many trainers.
Kingler trailed behind him. At first he was eager to explore, finally realizing that all of this meandering with Hugo wasn’t in vain, and would pay off in an adventure. After a few minutes of searching, however, Kingler was beginning to lose interest.
“Come on, man,” beckoned Hugo to has massive crab friend. “We’ve only been here for a little bit. We’ll find something soo—“
And almost as if on cue, suddenly an Unown L rapidly rises up in front of them.
“Oh! Hey there buddy! You’re pretty neat. Why don’t you just come along with me…”
Hugo reached down for one of the Pokeballs Professor Hale had given him. Unown was small. Couldn’t possibly be looking for a fight…could it?
Suddenly, the Symbol Pokemon furrows his massive eye into an angry stare and begins brightly glowing with energy.
“Oh…crap….” Said Hugo, slowly backing up. He jumped after colliding with something behind him, only to find that it was Kingler, a smirk across his massive face. If Unown wanted to fight, Kingler was more than ready for the challenge. Hugo glanced at the angry Unown, noticing that it was glowing brighter and brighter, ready to fire off at any second.
In one swift movement, Hugo leapt over Kingler, crouching behind the Pincer Pokemon for protection. Real brave, Hugo. Way to go.
“Kingler, use Protect!” Hugo instructed. Hugo knew very little about Unown, other than they were prone to using Hidden Power. It made it slightly easier, though not much, to try and strategize.
“Okay, one power for another. Follow up with AncientPower, Kingler! And then blast it with Icy Wind!”
