Wasting no time, the Golduck reacted immediately to your cry for help. Thanks to the pouring rain, his Swift Swim kicked into gear, managing to allot him just the speed boost needed to prompt his rapid response. The Carnivine lunged from the canopy above with its jaws gaping, just moments away from making you its next meal, and if it weren’t for the sudden blast of an Ice Beam to its side, it would have succeeded. Kratos’ beam of ice fired from the duck Pokemon like a gun, but what he didn’t immediately realize is that because of his need for a quick response, the attack didn’t land a perfect hit. What was important though, was that the attack had managed to knock the piranha plant Pokemon off of its trajectory, causing it to tumble forward onto the pathway and literally eat the dirt.

It took a moment for the Carnivine to collect itself, as it seemed completely caught off guard by the super-effective hit, probably having thought that its meal was a done deal. The Pokemon laid still for a moment before rolling onto its side and Ingraining its long tendrils into the muddy soil, recovering a bit of health from the Golduck’s ice attack. For the first time, it opened its eyes and looked at you and Kratos: it did not look happy. The Pokemon lifted its leafy arms into the air as it remained situated in place, absorbing nutrients from the earth. The mangroves surrounding you began to rock back and forth, shaking faster and harder by the moment, causing their leaves to break off from the branches and fall into the open air. They began to slowly spin around the Carnivine in a rhythmic motion with more leaves joining in with every passing moment. Finally, with a thrusting forward of its leafy arms, the creature whipped forth a powerful Leaf Tornado, sending the spiraling gust of wind and leaves directly across the trail and into your Golduck, the sharp edges of the leaves furiously cutting across the duck Pokemon’s skin with with a super-effective hit of its own. The Golduck lifted his arms and crossed them into an ‘X’ shape over his face to protect him from potentially severely harmful injury, but as the leaves within the attack were both numerous and blinding, Kratos’ accuracy was lowered - though with the Carnivine still absorbing nutrients with Ingrain, it seemed hard to think the Pokemon wouldn’t be able to easily land its mark…

The Carnivine healed a little more from the damage it had taken from the initial Ice Beam. Now it was furious that it was unable to eat its prey... and it doesn’t seem interested in letting you pass without putting up a fight.
As the toothy plant grew closer and closer to his face, Gary’s life flashed before his eyes. Memories of growing up in Azalea Town, meeting his pet Slowpoke Pokey for the first time, playing with his cousin Bugsy at the Slowpoke Well, starting off on his Pokemon journey with Typhu, and all of the adventures they shared since coming to Fizzytopia. However, Gary did not close his eyes in fear. They stared defiantly at the Carnivine as the wind and the rain fell from above, for he had complete confidence in his Golduck.

Inches from his demise, the Carnivine was suddenly blasted off course by an Ice Beam from Kratos, the Venus fly trap landing with a thud in the muddy trail. With danger averted by a hair’s length, Gary slowly got to his feet and shot Kratos a grateful smirk, who replied with a confident but not cocky thumbs-up. Now that he was back on his feet on sure footing, Gary turned to face the Carnivine as it angrily picked itself back up. It then dug its vine-like roots into the ground, absorbing nutrients with an Ingrain.

The Carnivine followed up its assault with a Leaf Tornado, a gust-like flurry of leaves pelting off the water-typed Golduck. Gary bit his lip as Kratos couldn’t have enjoyed that. He noticed that the attack disoriented Kratos a little, but Carnivine fixating itself to the ground would end up working in their favor, Gary thought. “Alright, Kratos, shake it off! It’s already mobilized itself with that Ingrain, so let’s hamper it further by Disabling its Leaf Tornado attacks! Since it’s stuck in one place, maintain your distance and blast it with a Blizzard!” Gary had already wasted enough time by falling into the swamp. He knew that a man’s life was in the balance, and he wouldn’t let himself forget that. For now, this Carnivine would have to face the consequences of picking a fight with him.
