Team Catalysts Final Stand! Part 5

Upon reaching the fifth floor, Jake's heart was still racing as fast as ever. Looking above him, Jake spotted a large glass dome, the same one he had seen back on the ship. It was funny, he had only been on the ship a short while ago, but after everything that had happened, it seemed like it had been an eternity.
Up ahead, Jake noticed a long stretching hallway, dimly lit by lights on either wall. At the very end, Jake spotted a single door, one he assumed to be his destination. Taking a deep breath, Jake began to make his way through the hall, Hazel right at his feet.

Upon reaching the door, Jake glanced to his left, only to notice another door, which had been swung wide open. Above it the words "Emergency Exit" were visible. Leaving the door out of his mind, Jake turned back to the door he was originally focused on. Without wasting another moment, Jake swung open the door, before stepping inside.

Behind the door appeared to be an office, with multiple desks and computers scattered about. But hat really caught Jake's attention was at the back of the room. Displayed on a white pillar, surrounded in a glass case, rested the golden Pokeball, the one that had started their whole journey to Catalyst tower in the first place.
In front of the pillar was the man Jake recognized as Chris, who immediately stopped pacing upon noticing him.

"Chris! L-look...we don't have to fight!" Jake began. "Y-you claim you want to s-save this world...and you can! J-just hand over the Pokeball...t-that's all you need to do."

"Silence! I've heard enough of your lies!" Chris bellowed. "Thanks to your stupid beast..my employees, friends...even my sister...are gone! And you still have the audacity to claim you're in the right?! You're no better then your father!

Jake was quite taken aback at the man's words. Everyone was gone....because of Project X? And what the hell did Chris mean when he was talking about his father?!

"D-don't compare me to him! W-we're...nothing alike." Jake stammered.

"Oh you're exactly the same. Both of you claimed to wish for a better world...but when it came down to it, you two threw it away for your own selfish reasons. I didn't stand with your father and his selfish goals...and I won't with you either." Chris replied.

"This world isn't for you to exploit...then toss away at the slightest whim. And I'll stand by that principle to my dying breath. So for this world...and everyone you've wronged....I will strike you down!"

Team Catalyst Leader Chris Jones appeared!

"Alright Glaceon, let's do this!" Chris exclaimed as he chucked a Pokeball into the air. From the ball emerged the fresh snow Pokemon, who seemed to be eyeing Jake quite wearily.
Glaceon was an Ice type...which meant a Fighting or Fire type would be the best choice. With this in mind, Jake grabbed a regular Pokeball from his bag and tossed in in front of himself. From the ball materialized a Machop, who began to flex his muscles in anticipation for the battle ahead.

"These people....Metta must fight them?" The Machop asked. "Ok, Metta will do his best then."

"T-that's nice to hear. Now Metta, use Low Kick, t-then use Thunder Punch!" Jake ordered.

"Glaceon, go with Ice Fang then Take Down!" Chris barked.

Glaceon was the first to act! Coating it's fangs in an icy aura, the fresh snow Pokemon rushed towards it's opponent, before sinking it's fangs into the Machop, causing him to cry out.

In retaliation, Metta swung his leg out at Glaceon's feet, causing the fresh snow Pokemon to crash onto the tile floor!

For it's second attack, Glaceon surrounded its entire body in a bronze aura, before recklessly charging towards Metta. Upon making contact with it's opponent, the Machop was sent stumbling backwards, though he quickly regained his footing.

Metta then covered his fist in electricity, before swinging it at Glaceon, dealing a large amount of damage to the fresh snow Pokemon.

"Glaceon, use Icy Wind, then use Shadow Ball!" Chris barked.

"Metta, s-start with Dual Chop, then Low Kick!" Jake called to the Machop.

Starting things off, Glaceon began to gather more frosty energy into it's mouth, before exhaling a frigid wind out at it's opponent. Upon making contact with the wind, Metta could feel his muscles going slightly numb. It seemed Glaceon had lowered his speed!

Angered by his opponent's assault, Metta started to collect draconic energy into each of his fists, before charging towards his opponent! Once he reached the Glaceon, Metta swung at the fresh snow Pokemon with an open hand, before delivering a second chop to it's flesh with his other hand!

For it's second attack, Glaceon started to gather spectral energy, forming a sphere of it in front of itself. The fresh snow Pokemon then fired the ball of energy out at Metta, prompting a small cry from him as he was sent stumbling backwards.

In retaliation, Metta once again threw his foot under his opponent's legs, causing Glaceon to crash down onto the floor!

"Alright Metta, go with Low Kick, t-then Thunder Punch!" Jake ordered.

"Glaceon, let's start with Take Down, then go for your Blizzard attack!" Chris exclaimed.

Glaceon was once again the first to act! Covering its body in a bronze aura, the fresh snow Pokemon once again rammed, into Metta, dealing damage to the Machop, as well as some to itself!

In return, Metta threw his foot underneath the fresh snow Pokemon, causing the Glaceon to trip and fall onto the hard floor.

In retaliation, Glaceon began to collect a large amount of icy energy in it's mouth, before releasing a blast of ice, snow and sleet at Metta! Unable to react in time, the Machop cried out as the powerful ice attack washed over to him. Once Glaceon's attack was over, Metta fell to the ground in defeat!

"Metta, return!" Jake called as he withdrew the Machop.
"Y-you did great..now rest up." He added, before tucking the Pokeball back in his bag.
Not willing to waste anymore time, Jake quickly took another Pokeball from his bag and tossed it into the air. Emerging from the ball was a Torkoal, who let out an audible sigh upon noticing his opponent.

"Why do we always have to battle these guys? Why can't we attack a burger joint, or an all you eat buffet for once?" Vermillion questioned. "Oh well, provided we stop by one of those after..I guess I'll put some effort in."

"Glaceon use Bite, then use Shadow Ball!" Chris barked.

"Alright. Vermillion, s-start with Stealth Rock, then use Eruption!" Jake called to the Torkoal.

Starting the round off, Glaceon dashed towards it's opponent, before sinking it's fangs into Vermillion's flesh, causing the Torkoal to cry out in pain.

After gathering up rock energy, Vermillion summoned several sharp stones, which floated around the Torkoal for only a moment, before flying off towards Glaceon. Instead of striking the fresh snow Pokemon, the rocks instead found their home on the floor, waiting for whichever Pokemon Chris would send out next.

For it's second attack, Glaceon started to gather spectral energy in front of itself, forming an indigo ball with it. The fresh snow Pokemon then fired the sphere of energy out at Vermillion, causing the Torkoal to stumble back from the force of the attack.

Collecting fire energy in his shell for a moment, Vermillion fired a large stream of fire and rock at his opponent. With the powerful fire attack washing over it, Glaceon let out a final cry, before falling to the ground!

"Glaceon return!" Chris called out as he returned the fresh snow Pokemon to it's ball.
The man then grabbed a second Pokeball from his belt, before chucking it in front of himself.
From the ball emerged a vicious looking Krookodile, who let out a sharp cry upon making contact with the sharp stones embedded on the floor.

"Vermillion, use Eruption, t-then go for a Skull Bash!" Jake ordered.

Krookodile, let's start with a Dragon Claw, then go for Rock Tomb!" Chris exclaimed.

Krookodile was the first to act! Gathering draconic energy into it's claw, the intimidation Pokemon rushed towards Vermillion, before delivering a power slash to the Torkoal!

For his first attack, Vermillion began to gather a massive amount of fire energy into his shell, before firing a large stream of flames and rocks out at his opponent! Despite the attack not being at it's full power, it was enough to prompt a sharp cry from Krookodile, before the intimidation Pokemon was sent stumbling backwards.

Angered by Vermillion's assault, Krookodile began to gather rock energy above itself, forming a large boulder with it. Grabbing ahold of the large rock, Krookodile tossed the boulder at Vermillion, sending the Torkoal flying back upon impact!

Tucking his head into his shell, Vermillion began to gather up energy, raising his defense in the process! The Torkoal then began to charge towards his opponent, before slamming into the Krookodile, causing it to cry out in pain!

"Krookodile let's end this! Go for another Rock Tomb. If that's not enough, use Bite!" Chris barked.

"H-hang in there Vermillion! Start with Skull Bash, t-then use Ember!" Jake ordered.

Starting the round off, Krookodile began to gather more rock energy above itself, creating a large boulder with it. Grabbing onto the boulder, Krookodile tossed it at Vermillion, prompting a sharp cry from the Torkoal as he was sent flying backwards.

With what little energy he had left, Vermillion tucked his head in his shell, raising his defense even further! The Torkoal then charged towards his opponent, before slamming into the Krookodile with all his might!

In retaliation, the intimidation Pokemon lunged at Vermillion, before sinking it's sharp fangs into the Torkoal's flesh! This proved to be too much for Vermillion, who let out a final cry, before toppling over in defeat.

"Vermillion, return!" Jake called out as he withdrew the Torkoal to his ball.
"R-rest up well, you deserve it." He added, before stuffing the ball back in his bag.
Pondering his next choice for a moment, Jake withdrew another Pokeball from his bag, before tossing it into the air. From the ball emerged a Snorunt, who began to bounce back and forth in anticipation for the battle ahead.

"Alright Willbert, I-I need you to give it your all...t-think you can do that?" Jake questioned.

"Of course! Oh! This moment would be great for a new play! I can imagine it now." Willbert said as he started to blissfully drift away from the battle.

"Willbert, y-you need to focus, ok? Now, start with Powder Snow, t-then use Shadow Ball!" Jake ordered.

"Krookodile use Thunder Fang, then use Rock Tomb!" Chris exclaimed.

Krookodile was once again the first to act! Coating it's fangs in electrical energy, the intimidation Pokemon lunged at Willbert, before sinking it's teeth into the Snorunt, causing him to cry out in pain.

Gathering a small amount of icy energy in his mouth, Willbert exhaled a sparkling blue wind out at his opponent. Upon making contact with Krookodile, the intimidation Pokemon let out a sharp cry, before falling back slightly.

For it's second attack, Krookodile began to gather the rest of it's rock energy above itself, forming a large boulder. Grabbing ahold of the boulder, the intimidation Pokemon tossed the boulder at it's opponent, sending Willbert flying back with a sharp cry.

Collecting a large amount of spectral energy, Willbert formed an indigo sphere of the energy in front of himself. The Snorunt then fired the indigo sphere of energy out at Krookodile, though it seemed not to do too much to the intimidation Pokemon.

"Krookodile let's start with Dragon Claw, then go for a Dark Pulse!" Chris bellowed.

"Willbert, g-go with Powder Snow, then Powder Snow again!" Jake called to the Snorunt.

Cloaking one of it's claws in draconic energy, Krookodile lunged at Willbert, before delivering a powerful slash to the Snorunt, sending him flying back!

Landing on his feet, Willbert started to collect icy energy in his mouth, before exhaling a sparkling blue wind out at his opponent. Upon making contact with the freezing wind, Krookodile let out a sharp cry, nearly toppling over! It was clear to see that the intimidation Pokemon wouldn't be in the fight for much longer!

Angered by Willbert's assault, the intimidation Pokemon began to gather up it's dark thoughts, converting them into a dark energy. Krookodile then fired a beam of dark energy at Willbert, prompting a pained cry from the Snorunt.

Determined to win, Willbert began to gather even more icy energy in his mouth, before spewing a freezing blue wind towards his opponent. As the chilling wind washed over Krookodile, the intimidation Pokemon let out a shriek, before falling over!

"Krookodile, return!" Chris called as he returned the intimidation Pokemon to it's ball. Team Catalyst's leader then grabbed a third Pokeball from his belt, before chucking it in front of himself. From the ball emerged a massive Golurk, it's sheer size enough to intimidate the small Snorunt in front of it. But as soon as the automaton Pokemon landed on the ground, it let out a deafening shriek! The stones laid down earlier by Vermillion had managed to inflict some damage on Golurk!

"H-hang in there Willbert, start with Shadow Ball, t-then use Shadow Ball once more!" Jake ordered.

"Golurk use Shadow Punch, then use Fire Punch!" Chris barked.

This time Willbert was the first to act! Gathering up spectral energy in front of himself, the Snorunt formed a indigo ball with the energy. Willbert then fired the indigo sphere out at Golurk, causing the automaton Pokemon to let out a shriek.

In retaliation, Golurk began to focus spectral energy into it's fist, before swinging at the open air. From it's arm a spectral fist flew out, which quickly homed in on Willbert, striking the Snorunt and sending him flying.

For his second attack, Willbert focused the rest of his ghost energy in front of himself, forming an indigo sphere with it. The Snorunt then fired the ball of energy at Golurk, striking the automaton Pokemon with a super effective blow!

Cloaking it's fist in flames, Golurk swung at Willbert, striking the Snorunt and sending him flying into a nearby wall! As the snow hat Pokemon fell to the ground, it was clear to see that he had been knocked out!

"Willbert, return!" Jake called as he withdrew the Snorunt.
"You were amazing out there, t-thank you." Jake added, before stuffing the Snorunt's ball back in his bag. With Willbert now out of the picture, Jake was left to wonder what Pokemon he should pick next.
Of his remaining Pokemon, most of them were either weak to Ground types...or were to weak to stand a chance against the automaton Pokemon. There was always Dusty...but Jake wanted to save her for later. If Chris still had the same Pokemon since their last encounter, Jake knew that he was going to need to save the Vibrava.
As he continued to ponder his choice, a sudden idea sprung into his mind. Fetching another Pokeball from his bag, Jake quickly tossed it into the air. From the ball emerged a Luxio, who gave her opponent a glare upon noticing it.

Despite the Luxio's small size, Golurk couldn't help but feel intimidated by the spark Pokemon. It was the Luxio's eyes, sheer determination flaring inside of them.

"Alright Lenna, I-I need you to give it your all...b-but I don't really need to tell you that, huh?" Jake questioned.

"Of course, I'll give it a hundred and ten percent! A battle between a mighty Golurk...it'll be a whole new adventure!" Lenna exclaimed.

"Golurk, go for a Fire Punch, then use Mega Punch!" Chris barked

"Lenna, l-let's start with Leer, then use Night Slash!" Jake ordered.

Starting things off, Lenna cast a fierce loom towards Golurk, her eyes glowing a bright red. Startled by Lenna's attack, Golurk's defense fell, leaving it vulnerable to future physical attacks!

Surrounding it's fist in flames, the automaton Pokemon swung it's arm at Lenna, striking her and dealing a large amount of damage to the Luxio!

For her second attack, Lenna began to coat her claws in an aura of dark energy. The Luxio then leaped at her opponent, delivering a powerful slash to the Golurk and sending it stumbling back with a loud shriek!

Gathering energy into it's arm, Golurk's right fist began to glow a bright white! The automaton Pokemon then swung it's fist into Lenna, sending the Luxio flying!

"Lenna, go with Night Slash, t-then use Fire Fang!" Jake called to the Luxio.

"Golurk, use Shadow Punch, then use Hammer Arm!" Chris exclaimed.

Starting the round off, Lenna once again surrounded her claws in a dark aura, before charging towards her opponent. Upon reaching the Golurk, Lenna struck it with a powerful slash, prompting a shriek from the automaton Pokemon.

In retaliation, Golurk began to focus spectral energy into it's fist, before swinging at the open air. From it's arm a spectral fist flew out, which quickly homed in on Lenna, striking the Luxio and sending her stumbling back.

For her second attack, Lenna laced her fangs in orange flames, before lunging at her opponent! The Luxio then sunk her fangs into Golurk's arm, landing a solid hit on the automaton Pokemon.

With Lenna left wide open, Golurk swung it's arm down upon it, causing the Luxio to cry out as the entire building began to shake!

"Golurk, go for a Mega Punch, then use Ice Punch!" Chris bellowed.

"L-let's finish this Lenna! Use Night Slash, then Fire Fang!" Jake ordered.

Determined to win, Lenna began to gather the last of her dark energy into her claws, causing them to glow purple. The Luxio then leaped towards Golurk, delivering a powerful slash to the automaton Pokemon! This proved to be too much for Golurk, who let out a final shriek, before toppling to the floor, causing the room to shake once more!

"Golurk return!" Chris exclaimed as he returned the automaton Pokemon to it's ball.
Grabbing a fourth Pokeball from his belt, Chris quickly tossed the ball into the air, revealing a Breloom to be inside. As soon as the mushroom Pokemon landed on the floor, it let out a sharp cry! It seemed it too had become a victim of Vermillion's earlier stealth rock attack!
Upon noticing it's opponent, the mushroom Pokemon started to throw some practice punches, eager for it's rematch against Lenna.

"Lenna, l-let's start with a Fire Fang, then use Double Kick!" Jake ordered.

"Breloom, use Counter, then use Bullet Seed!" Chris barked.

Starting things off, Lenna started to collect fire energy, cloaking her fangs in an aura of flames! The Luxio then rushed towards her opponent, sinking her flames into Breloom's flesh! But the mushroom Pokemon was fully prepared for the assault, it's entire body covered in fighting energy.
With Lenna left wide open, Breloom struck the Luxio with twice the power she had shown the mushroom Pokemon

With Lenna still reeling from it's attack, Breloom took the opportunity to perform it's second attack! Gathering grass energy in it's mouth, the mushroom Pokemon spat out a barrage of seeds at it's opponent, prompting a pained cry from Lenna!

Angered by Breloom's assault, Lenna charged towards her opponent. Upon reaching the mushroom Pokemon, Lenna turned around, before delivering two solid kicks to Breloom using her hind legs!

"Breloom, go for a Swords Dance, then use Sky Uppercut!" Chris exclaimed.

"Lenna, go with Fire Fang, t-then use Tackle!" Jake ordered.

This time Breloom was the first to act! Instead of attacking though, the mushroom Pokemon instead began to perform a special dance, heightening it's attack power!

Taking advantage of Breloom's vulnerable state, Lenna began to perform her first attack! Using the remainder of her fire energy, Lenna cloaked her fangs in flames, before lunging towards her opponent! Upon reaching her opponent, the Luxio sunk her teeth into the mushroom Pokemon, prompting a sharp cry from it.

In retaliation, Breloom charged towards Lenna, it's arm glowing blue with energy. The mushroom Pokemon then leaped into the air, delivering a powerful uppercut to it's opponent!

Letting out a final cry, Lenna fell to the ground, Breloom's last attack proving to have been to much for her.

"Lenna return!" Jake called as he withdrew the Luxio.
"Y-you did great..now rest up." He added, before stuffing Luxio's ball back in his bag. In it's place, Jake withdrew another Pokeball, before chucking it in front of himself. From the ball materialized a Rotom, who began to cackle upon noticing where he was.

"Ah! Another battle of fate is about to commence, but what unlucky soul shall be my opponent today?" Arthur pondered aloud.
"Oh! A demonic mushroom is it? Very well, as a legendary hero of darkness, I'm sworn to destroy everyone in my path! Nothing personal." The Rotom continued.

Refusing to comment on the Rotom's antics, Jake instead turned his attention to the battle ahead.
"Alright Arthur, let's start with Thunder Wave, t-then use Signal Beam!" Jake ordered.

"Breloom, use Sleep Powder, then use Seed Bomb!" Chris barked.

Starting things off, Arthur fired out a wave of thick electric tendrils, striking Breloom...but strangely enough, the electricity appeared to do nothing to the mushroom Pokemon! That was until Breloom attempted to move, where it found that it was much slower then usual. The mushroom Pokemon had been paralyzed!

Trying it's best to perform it's first attack, Breloom found that it's muscles had completely locked up on it, preventing it from attacking!

With Breloom currently out of commission, Arthur seized the opportunity to start his next attack! Collecting a large amount of bug energy in front of himself, the Rotom fired a beautiful rainbow beam at his opponent, prompting a sharp cry from the mushroom Pokemon as it stumbled backwards.

Trying it's best to fight through it's paralysis, Breloom began to gather up some grass energy, before sending a sphere of it flying towards Arthur! Upon making contact with the Rotom, the sphere of energy exploded, causing Arthur to let out a pained cry!

"Breloom, go for another Seed Bomb, then use Bullet Seed!" Chris barked.

"Arthur, g-go with an Uproar, then use Uproar again!" Jake called to the Rotom.

Starting the round off, Arthur let out a loud shriek, summoning several blue sound waves from his mouth. The sound waves quickly rushed towards Breloom, dealing a large amount of damage to the mushroom Pokemon!

Angered by Arthur's assault, Breloom tried it's best to retaliate, but found that it's muscles had once again locked up, preventing it from taking any actions!

Seizing the opportunity to perform his second attack, Arthur once again let out a loud shriek, sending more blue sound waves towards his opponent. Upon making contact with the sound waves, Breloom let out a pained cry, nearly toppling then and there.

Fighting through it's paralysis, Breloom began to gather grass energy in it's mouth, before spewing a barrage of seeds out at Arthur, prompting a pained cry from the Rotom as he was sent flying back.

"L-let's finish this Arthur. Use Signal Beam, t-then Shock Wave!" Jake ordered.

"Breloom, use Bullet Seed, then use Seed Bomb!" Chris barked.

Arthur was once again the first to act! Collecting a large amount of bug energy in front of himself, the Rotom fired a beautiful rainbow beam at his opponent. Upon making contact with Breloom, the mushroom Pokemon emitted a sharp cry, before falling over in defeat!

"Breloom return!" Chris exclaimed as he withdrew the mushroom Pokemon.
Grabbing a fifth Pokeball from his belt, Chris tossed it into the air, revealing a mighty Hydreigon! But as soon as the brutal Pokemon entered the battle, the sharp stones embedded in the floor shot out of their hiding place, stabbing into Hydreigon and causing the Dragon type to let out a shriek!

"Hydreigon, go for a Defog, then use Dark Pulse!" Chris exclaimed.

"Arthur, u-use Thunder Wave, then go with Signal Beam!" Jake called to the Rotom.

Starting the round off, Hydreigon began to rapidly beat it's tattered wings, summoning a strong wind throughout the room. Due to the force of the wind, the rocks embedded in the floor began to fly out of their previous homes, eventually crumbling upon impact of the back wall.

For his first attack, Arthur sent out a wave of thick electric tendrils, striking Hydreigon and paralyzing it!

Angered by Arthur's assault, Hydreigon began to gather up it's dark thoughts, converting them into raw energy. Aiming one of it's heads at Arthur, Hydreigon fired a beam of the dark energy out at the Rotom, prompting a loud cry as Arthur was sent flying into the back wall. As the Rotom fell to the floor, it was clear that he had knocked out!

"Arthur return!" Jake called as he withdrew the Rotom to his ball.
"T-thank you for trying best...now rest up." He added, before slipping the Rotom's ball back in his bag. Hydreigon...now this was just the Pokemon Jake was waiting for. He had fought the brutal Pokemon just earlier that day..where it had proven to be a tough opponent.
What better way to stand up to the Dragon type, then with another dragon? Snatching another Pokeball from his bag, Jake hurled the ball into the air.
From the ball emerged a Vibrava, who quickly flew into position, looking quite eager to battle.

"A fight against another dragon? A fitting use for my skills." The Vibrava commented.
"But I'll do everything in my power to strike any of these Catalyst freaks down, dragon or not."

"Glad to hear it. Now Dusty, s-start with Bug Buzz, then use Dragon Breath!" Jake ordered.

"Hydreigon, use Dragon Rush, then use Hyper Voice!" Chris exclaimed.

Gathering bug energy into her wings, Dusty began to rapidly beat them, sending green sounds waves flying towards Hydreigon, causing the brutal Pokemon to cry out in pain as the super effective attack washed over it.

Fighting through the paralysis, Hydreigon surrounded it's body in a veil of draconic energy, before soaring towards Dusty! Upon making impact with it's opponent, the Vibrava was sent flying backwards into a wall!

Recovering from the impact, Dusty once again took to the air, ready to perform her second attack! Collecting draconic energy in her mouth, the Vibrava exhaled green flames at her opponent, prompting a shriek from Hydreigon as the powerful attack washed over it.

Trying it's best to retaliate, Hydreigon found that it's muscles were unwilling to cooperate!

"Hydreigon, let's start with a Dragon Rush, then use Dragon Pulse!" Chris barked.

"Dusty, use Signal Beam, t-then go for Mimic!" Jake called to the Vibrava.

Collecting even more bug energy, Dusty fired a rainbow beam out at her opponent, causing Hydreigon to fly back with another shriek.

In retaliation, the brutal Pokemon summoned more draconic around itself, before flying off towards Dusty and slamming into the Vibrava, sending her flying back!

Copying her opponent, Dusty covered her body in a draconic aura, before rushing towards Hydreigon. Upon reaching the brutal Pokemon, Dusty slammed into it with all her might, sending the Dragon type flying back with a shriek!

Trying it's best to fight through the paralysis inflicted upon it, Hydreigon began to gather draconic energy in it's mouth, before sending a shock wave of the energy Dusty's way, causing the Vibrava to let out a pained cry!

"Hydreigon, use Dark Pulse, then use Hyper Voice!" Chris barked.

"Dusty, go with Bug Buzz, t-then use Dragon Rush!" Jake exclaimed.

Gathering the last of her bug energy, Dusty focused it all into her wings, before rapidly flapping them, sending multiple green sound waves towards her opponent. Upon making contact with the sounds waves, the brutal Pokemon emitted a harsh cry, though quickly managed to recover from it.
With it's attention back on Dusty, the brutal Pokemon began to collect even more of it's dark thoughts, transforming them into raw energy. Aiming one of it's heads at the Vibrava, Hydreigon fired a beam of the dark energy out at Dusty, sending her flying back with a pained cry!

Remembering the move her opponent had performed earlier, Dusty surrounded herself in a aura of draconic, before slamming into Hydreigon, prompting a deafening shriek from the brutal Pokemon. It seemed that the Dragon type Pokemon was on the verge of fainting!

Angered by Dusty's assault, Hydreigon emitted a sharp cry from it's mouth, sending blue sound waves towards the Vibrava and sending her flying backwards upon impact!

"L-let's end this. Use Dragon Breath!" Jake exclaimed.

"Hydreigon, go for another Hyper Voice!" Chris barked.

Eager to finish her opponent off, Dusty began to collect more draconic energy into her mouth, before exhaling a wave of green flames! As the flames washed over it, the brutal Pokemon let out a final cry, before crashing to the floor in defeat!

"Hydreigon, return!" Chris called as he withdrew the brutal Pokemon. The man then grabbed a sixth Pokeball from his belt, before chucking it in front of himself. From the ball materialized a Pinsir, who began to snap it's pincers in anticipation for the battle ahead.
But what really stood out to Jake was the leg band the stag beetle Pokemon was wearing.

"Though I hate to admit it....you are quite the powerful opponent, Jake." Chris called out.
"If only that power wasn't wasted on you, one so desperate to seize Project X for their own selfish goals."

Now Jake was confused. What did Chris mean by him seizing Project X for himself? Before he could ask, the man continued his rambling.

"But it's pointless to think what could have been...I must focus on the present. Pinsir! This is our last brave stand...our final hope to protect this world! As such I call on you to Mega Evolve!!!" Chris exclaimed, producing a keystone from his pocket as he did so.
Upon firmly grasping the stone, tendrils of energy shot out of it, linking to Pinsir's leg band. It was then that the stag beetle Pokemon began to transform!

From it's back, wings sprouted, and wing covers appeared as well. It's pincers began to grow longer, along with their spikes! It's arms also began to grow, and Pinsir's eyes turned a bright yellow.

Once the stag beetle Pokemon was finished transforming, it let out a small cry, before taking to the skies.

"Alright Pinsir, use Quick Attack, then use X-Scissor!" Chris barked.

"Dusty, start with Rock Slide, t-then use Rock Slide again!" Jake ordered.

Starting things off, Pinsir flew towards Dusty at a great speed, before slamming into the Vibrava and dealing a small amount of damage to her.

In retaliation, Dusty summoned several rings of energy, which quickly flew over Pinsir. From the rings several large boulders appeared, causing Pinsir to let out a pained cry as the boulders came crashing down upon it.

For it's second attack, Pinsir coated it's pincers in bug energy, before flying towards Dusty. Once it had reached the vibration Pokemon, Pinsir swiped at her, sending Dusty flying back in to a wall with a sharp cry. Unlike last time though, Dusty was unable to get up, Pinsir's last attack proving to have been to much.

"Dusty, return!" Jake called as he withdrew the Vibrava.
"You did great..n-now rest up." He added, before returning the Vibrava's Pokeball to his bag.
With Dusty having been his sixth Pokemon, Jake suddenly realized what that meant for him. He had lost the battle against Chris! Wait no...what was he thinking?! This wasn't an official match, he could use as many Pokemon as he needed!
Feeling somewhat stupid for forgetting that, Jake turned his attention to the mega evolved Pinsir in front of him. The stag beetle Pokemon appeared to be quite the powerful opponent..and Jake wasn't entirely sure any of his Pokemon would be able to defeat it by themselves.
Pondering his choice for a moment, a sudden idea sprung to his mind. He'd use some of his weaker Pokemon to deal a bit of damage to the stag beetle Pokemon, then use his strongest to finish it off.

With this in mind, Jake grabbed a regular Pokeball from his bag, before tossing it into the air. From the ball emerged a Gible, who upon noticing his opponent, let out a small chuckle.

"Alright Charlie, I-I need you to do your best...now's not the time for games..o-ok?" Jake questioned.

"...Fine...just this once though..." The Gible murmured, before turning his attention to the battle.

"Ok Charlie, g-go with Iron Head, then use Tackle!" Jake ordered.

"Pinsir, go for a X-Scissor, then go with Double Edge!" Chris barked.

Pinsir was once again the first to act! Coating it's pincers in bug energy, the stag beetle Pokemon flew towards Charlie, before delivering a powerful swipe to the Gible with it's pincers, sending him flying back.

In retaliation, Charlie surrounded his head in metalic energy, before diving towards his opponent head first! Despite the Gible's best efforts, the attack did little more then provoke the stag beetle Pokemon!

Angered by Charlie's attempted assault, the mega evolved Pinsir recklessly charged towards the Gible, before slamming into him with all it's weight, sending the land shark Pokemon flying! But something was off about the Pinsir's attack..it seemed almost too powerful...
Of course! The mega evolved Pinsir's ability, Aerilate, was boosting the power of it's Normal type moves!

For his second attack, Charlie was again lunged at his opponent, before slamming into Pinsir with all his might!

"Pinsir, use Return, then use Double Edge!" Chris barked.

"Charlie, s-start with Iron Head, then use Tackle!" Jake called to the Gible.

Starting things off, Pinsir flew towards Charlie at an alarming rate. Upon reaching the Gible, the mega evolved Pinsir slammed into him, using it's happiness and well being to fuel the attack! With Aerialate's power, the attack was strong enough to send Charlie crashing into a wall!

But Charlie wasn't out quite yet! Covering his head in metalic energy, the land shark Pokemon dove at his opponent, before crashing into Pinsir using his head!

For it's second attack, Pinsir recklessly flew towards Charlie, it's own safety entirely forgotten! Upon making impact with the Pinsir, Charlie was sent flying once again! Once the Gible had fallen to the ground however, it was clear to see he wouldn't be getting up.

"Charlie return." Jake called as he withdrew the Gible.
"T-thanks for trying your best, now rest well." He added as he placed the Pokeball back in his bag.
Not willing to waste anymore time, Jake snatched an aqua Cyber Ball from his bag, before throwing it in front of himself.

From the ball materialized a Dedenne, who quickly began to sniff at his surroundings.

"Hmm..based on my deductions...I'd say, I am to battle these people? Very well then, I'm on the case!" Tantei exclaimed.

"Ok.....Tantei, use Tail Whip, t-then Tackle!" Jake ordered.

"Pinsir, go for Poison Jab, then Poison Jab again!" Chris exclaimed.

Starting things off, Pinsir cloaked one of it's arms in poisonous energy, before flying towards it's opponent! Upon reaching the Dedenne, the stag beetle Pokemon thrust it's arm at him, causing Tantei to let out a pained cry.

In retaliation, the Dedenne swung his tail at Pinsir, doing absolutely no damage to the stag beetle Pokemon. At it's opponent's pathetic attempt at an attack, Pinsir couldn't help but lower it's guard around it, leaving it vulnerable to physical attacks!

For it's second attack, Pinsir covered it's arm in even more poisonous energy, before charging towards Tantei. As it reached the Dedenne, Pinsir once again thrust it's arm into him, this time sending Tantei flying backwards!

In retaliation, Tantei threw himself at his opponent, causing the mega evolved Pinsir to cry out in surprise!

"Now Pinsir, end this with Poison Jab!" Chris barked.

"Tantei, u-use Tackle!" Jake hopelessly called to the Dedenne.

Pinsir was once again the first to act! Surrounding one of it's arms with the last of it's poisonous energy, the stag beetle Pokemon flew towards Tantei, before delivering a powerful thrust of it's arm to the Dedenne, sending him flying back with a sharp cry.
Once the Dedenne had crashed into the ground, it was clear that he wasn't getting up...

"Tantei, return!" Jake called as he returned the Dedenne to his aqua Cyber Ball.
"Y-you did well...now rest up for now." He added, before stuffing the Cyber Ball back in his bag.

Continuing with his plan, Jake grabbed another Pokeball from his bag, before chucking it into the air. Emerging from the ball was a Drowzee, who eyed his opponent with curiosity.

"Hmm..it's a shame we have to fight, friend...." Somnus said, his voice echoing through out the room.
"I'm kind of hungry, and I'd love to see what kind of dreams you're cooking up...but I guess it just wasn't meant to be."

"We can focus on that later Somnus. For now, s-start with Pound, then Pound again!" Jake ordered.

"Pinsir, use X-Scissor, then use Bug Bite!" Chris exclaimed.

Pinsir was once again the first to act! Coating it's pincers in bug energy, the stag beetle Pokemon flew towards Somnus, before delivering a powerful swipe to the Drowzee with it's pincers, sending him stumbling back.

In retaliation, Somnus swung his arm at Pinsir, striking the stag beetle Pokemon and causing it to cry out in surprise!

For it's second attack, Pinsir flew towards it's opponent as fast as it could. Upon reaching the Drowzee, Pinsir bit down on the hypnosis Pokemon, injecting bug energy into it's blood stream!

Letting out a pained cry, Somnus stumbled back, though quickly regained his footing. With the mega evolved Pinsir now wide open, Somnus swung his arm at his opponent, sending the stag bettle flying back ever so slightly.

"Pinsir, go for a Quick Attack, then go with X-Scissor!" Chris barked.

"Somnus, go with Pound, t-then another Pound!" Jake called to the Drowzee.

Starting things off, Pinsir charged towards Somnus at an incredible speed! Unable to react in time, the Drowzee was sent stumbling back upon making impact with Pinsir!

In retaliation, Somnus once again swung his arm at Pinsir, receiving another surprised cry from the stag beetle Pokemon.

For it's second attack, Pinsir covering it's pincers in bug energy, before flying towards Somnus. Once it had reached the Drowzee, Pinsir swiped at him with it's pincers, sending Somnus tumbling to the floor, where he refused to get up.

"Somnus, return!" Jake called, before withdrawing the Drowzee.
"N-nice work. Rest up for now." He added, before putting the Drowzee's ball back in his bag. He then turned his attention to Pinsir, wondering what his next choice of Pokemon would be.
By now, Pinsir was showing signs of fatigue...two well placed attacks would probably be enough to finish it, Jake figured.

With this in mind, Jake fetched a Cherish Ball from his bag, before tossing it into the air. From the ball materialized a Galvantula, who eyed his opponent with a look of disgust.

"Alright Sparky..t-this is it. This is our final obstacle to stopping Team Catalyst. S-so I need you to give it your all!" Jake called out.

"Of course! They want to make the world a better place? We'll grant their wish, by destroying Team Catalyst in it's entirety!" Sparky exclaimed.

"Alright. Sparky use Thunderbolt, t-then let's end this with Electro Ball!" Jake exclaimed.

"We cannot lose here Pinsir! Double Edge, then Double Edge again!" Chris bellowed.

This time Sparky was the first to act! Gathering up the electrical energy in his body, Sparky fired a bolt of electricity out at Pinsir, causing the stag beetle Pokemon to emit a sharp cry!

In retaliation, Pinsir recklessly flew towards Sparky, it's own safety entirely forgotten! Upon making impact with the Pinsir, Sparky let out a pained cry, the force of the Flying type attack enough to send him flying back.

For his second attack Sparky began to collect electrical energy inbetween his pedipalps, forming a large ball of energy with it. Letting out a determined cry, the Galvantula fired the ball of electricity out at his opponent! As the ball of electricity crashed into it, Pinsir let out on last cry, before falling to the ground in defeat!

"Pinsir, no!!!" Chris cried out as the stag beetle Pokemon began to glow, before resuming it's usual form.

"W-we won! Hazel...Sparky, we did it!" Jake cheered, prompting the Eevee and Galvantula to join in.

Returning Pinsir to it's ball, Chris turned his attention to Jake, a pained expression on his face.

"You did it...congratulations...." Chris murmured.
"You've earned it....all you have left is to kill me....then Project X is yours to control."

"W-what are you talking about?" Jake questioned. "I-I'm not here to take Project X...and I currently won't kill you..i-if I don't have to."

"What?! Of course you are! That was the whole point you came here!" Chris exclaimed.

"No, that's not why we're here...a-at all." Jake replied, shaking his head.
"We're here to stop you guys..f-from using Project X for your selfish goals..as well as stopping your horrific experiments!"

"What experiments? And what's this about snatching Project X? Our reason for grabbing that special Pokeball was to capture and destroy Project X in it's entirety!" Chris exclaimed.

At Chris's words, Jake's heart stopped, if only for a moment. There was no way Chris was telling the truth, was there? Had they been wrong about Team Catalyst the whole time? No, Chris had to be deceiving him!

"You know exactly what experiments! T-the ones at Hagane Labs, on the first three floors!" Jake exclaimed.
"And why would you want to destroy Project X anyway? W-what's in it for you?"

"The first three floors of Hagane Labs? Sorry, that ain't us. The bottom three floors are still owned by the original owner. As for Project X...isn't it obvious?! The beast is on rampage!" Chris exclaimed.

"Please...you've got to listen....you've got to believe me...if you have any love left for this world, promise me yo-" Chris began to plead, but was quickly cut off as something struck him from behind.
Jake couldn't quite make out what had hit Chris, but the next thing he knew, the man had fallen to the ground, a pool of blood starting to surround him.

"Chris!" Jake cried out, quickly rushing to the mans side along with Sparky.
But Hazel had other concerns, the Eevee frozen in fear at the sight of the figure approaching his trainer.

"Hello, Jake." The familiar voice called out, causing Jake to turn his attention to it.

"Sophie?! What's going on here?" Jake questioned.

"I don't know, seems pretty clear cut to me. That piece of shit got exactly what he deserved." Sophie replied.

"Huh...w-what are you saying Sophie?" Jake questioned, off put by his friend's change of tone.

"A-actually never mind. Chris said something interesting. A-apparently Project X is going on a rampage. I-if that's true..we need to stop it!" Jake exclaimed.

"Stop it, now why would we want to do that?" Sophie questioned.

"Are you ok?" Jake questioned. "I-I mean..if it's going on a rampage...innocent lives are in danger!"

"Innocent lives? Don't make me laugh. None of humanity is truly innocent, Jake." Sophie replied.

Upon hearing her words, Sparky shifted himself between the pair, clearly picking up on Sophie's startling change in tone.

"Sophie...." Jake murmured, though said nothing more.

"I suppose I must thank you Jake. Without you and Zack, I'd have had no hope in destroying Team Catalyst and getting my revenge." Sophie said, a small smile on her face.

"Your revenge? Sophie what is going on? E-explain yourself!" Jake exclaimed.

"Explain myself? Oh Jake, you really are quite dimwitted. But I suppose that's what I like about you." Sophie replied.
"So easy to manipulate...it made my job quite easy. But I guess I owe you an explanation now." She continued.

"You know Team Catalyst's story by now? How they can be traced back to their creation of Project X? Well, how about I tell you what happened to their creation after. After being thrust into this world, Project X felt scared and alone. In a meager old lab, scientists constantly poking and running tests.
Eventually, Project X decided that wasn't what they wanted in life, and so they escaped." Sophie explained.

"That should have been the end of it, but after leaving, a need for revenge started to brew inside Project X. It need to destroy all that had wronged it, no matter the cost. At the same time, Team Catalyst began to form. Thinking that the beast might go insane, they aimed to capture it, then destroy it...to prevent harm to the world.
Realizing that it would need help in destroying Team Catalyst, Project X began to plot. Eventually, Project X searched the Unova region for a trainer that could help. One that showed lots of potential, but also one easy enough to mold however it wanted." Sophie continued.

"Eventually Project X found just what it was looking for. A young trainer that would obey it without question, given enough time. Eventually, Project X subtlety guided the trainer to the Fizzytopia region, home to Team Catalyst's new base of operations.
Of course, in order for the trainer to succeed, Project X had to do some tampering. Altering memories, or even giving the trainer special abilities. Eventually, Project X guided the trainer, along with their friends, to Team Catalyst's Headquarters.
Using the group as bait, Project X began to murder the scum that had taken everything from it." Sophie finished.

"There's no way...that means that-" Jake began.

"-I am Project X" Sophie finished for him.
As if to demonstrate, the form Jake knew as his friend began to glow white, before a Ditto took her place. It lasted for only a moment however, for soon the Ditto reverted back to her human form.

"Why me? C-couldn't anyone have done?" Jake questioned.

"Why you? Well, your ties to Team Catalyst certainly helped. I guess I also liked your sense of determination, as well as how naive you can be at times." Sophie explained.

"But technically, there wasn't really any reason. I just needed someone to distract Team Catalyst for awhile."

"A-and why are you telling me this? I-If you have mind altering powers..w-why aren't you using them?" Jake questioned.

"Well there's two reasons, the first..and most obvious, is that device you're wearing." Sophie replied.

"Device, w-" Jake began, before glancing at his arm, the black bracelet Zack had gifted him still firmly attached. Of course, Zack had said this device prevented mind control, so long as it was active!

"And the second reason?" Jake questioned.

"It's because I haven't yet had my revenge. Team Catalyst is only a small part of that. To quench my thirst for it, I must destroy all of humanity." Sophie explained.

"That's why I'm telling you this Jake, because I thought you deserved to know, before you join the others."

"Y-you don't have to do this!" Jake exclaimed.
"Team Catalyst..t-they don't represent all of humanity! Please...there are people and Pokemon...that'll listen to you. I know I will..a-and Zack as well!" Jake continued.
"You were there, w-when one of your own wanted to meet you. Back at Hagane City...he said you were like family to him. D-do you really want to throw that a-away?"

"Jake's right, you have to stop while you're ahead." Sparky nodded.
"I know you're angry at Team Catalyst, but you shouldn't take it out on the rest of humanity, it'll accomplish nothing. I mean, Jake's father murdered my colony...but you don't see me killing every human in sight."

"I know you both have good intentions, but I cannot live in peace, knowing even one human draws breath. And as for the Ditto you speak of? It's one of my biggest regrets, not being able to talk to him truthfully." Sophie replied.

"But enough talking, I'm growing impatient. With you out of the picture, I'll finally be free to destroy everything in my path!" Sophie cackled, her body glowing once more as began to change forms. This time, the form Project X took was one that Jake had only seen in books and dreams. Mewtwo!

"Farewell Jake. It was fun while it lasted, but now you must join the blood bathes!"

----
Fallen Creation Project X appeared!

*Project X's aura flared to life!*
*Project X's Defense rose sharply!*
*Project X's Special Defense rose sharply!*

----

Turning to his trainer, Sparky gave Jake a firm nod, letting him know that he was ready to battle.

"I-I guess we have no choice. Start with Signal Beam, t-then use Bug Bite!" Jake ordered.

Starting the round off, Project X began to glow, clearly ready to Transform! Before it could, a strange light shot out of Jake's bracelet. Upon making contact with Project X, the Mewtwo's attempts at transforming were ceased entirely! Had the strange light Imprisoned Transform's usage?

Seizing the opportunity to attack, Sparky began to gather up bug energy, before firing a rainbow beam at Project X, causing the Mewtwo to fall back slightly.

In retaliation, Project X started to collect rock energy, before summoning several sharp stone around itself. After floating around the transform Pokemon for a moment, the rocks flew off towards Sparky.
But instead of striking the Galvantula, the rocks instead found their home on the floor, waiting for whichever Pokemon Jake would send out next.

For his second attack, Sparky laced his fangs with bug energy, before lunging at Project X! Upon reaching the transform Pokemon, Sparky bit down hard upon it's body, sending the bug energy into Project X's bloodstream!

"Sparky, go for Cross Poison, t-then Bug Bite!" Jake ordered.

Project X was once again the first to act! Enveloping itself in a white light, the Mewtwo began to spin, sending sharp, white Spikes across the floor!

For his first attack, Sparky crossed his pedipalps, before covering them in a poisonous energy. The Galvantula then dived at his opponent, before swiping at Project X and scoring a direct hit on her!

In retaliation, Project X started to collect fire energy in front of itself, before releasing a powerful Flamethrower attack towards Sparky.
As the powerful orange flames washed over him, Sparky couldn't help but let out a sharp cry!

As determined to win as ever, Sparky laced his fangs in bug energy, before charging towards Project X! Upon reaching the transform Pokemon, Sparky leaped towards her, sinking his teeth into Project X's flesh!

"Sparky, use Signal Beam, t-then Slash!" Jake ordered.

Gathering up psychic energy, Project X released a wave of red and pink out at Sparky. Unable to react in time, the Galvantula emitted a sharp cry as the Psystrike sent waves of pain throughout his body.

Angered by the Mewtwo's assault, Sparky collected even more bug energy, before firing a rainbow beam out at Project X, causing the transform Pokemon to stumble back.

Regaining her footing, Project X began it's second attack. With a cry, several sharp stones began to surround Project X, before flying towards Sparky, prompting a pained shriek from the Galvantula as the stones dug into his flesh!

At this point, it seemed Sparky was completely tuckered out. Even one attack was probably enough to finish the Galvantula off, Jake realized.

Despite this, Sparky seemed unwilling to give up! With one of his pedipalps glowing white, Sparky rushed towards his opponent as fast as he could! Upon reaching Project X, Sparky swung his pedipalp at Project X, causing the transform Pokemon to fall back once more!

"Hang in there Sparky. L-let's start with Thunderbolt, then Pin Missile!" Jake ordered.

Project X was once again the first to act! Collecting even more energy, the transform Pokemon sent a wave of Psychic energy flying towards Sparky! As the wave of energy crashed into him, Sparky let out a pained cry, before dropping to the ground.

"Sparky, return!" Jake called as he withdrew the Galvantula to his Cherish Ball.
"Y-you were amazing out there, now rest up." He added, before returning the ball to his bag.
With little choice on his next Pokemon, Jake grabbed a Thunder Ball from his bag, before tossing it into the air. From the ball emerged a rather large Electivire, who let out a pained cry as his feet landed upon the sharp stones and spikes on the floor.

"Crix, I need you to give it your all..o-ok?" Jake questioned.

To his trainers words, Crix gave a brief nod. Anything he had to say, he'd let his actions convey.

"Alright Crix, l-let's start with Cross Fire, then Wild Charge!" Jake ordered.

Starting things off, Project X began to stomp the ground repeatedly, causing the whole building to shake as powerful shockwaves from Mewtwo's Bulldoze attack sent both Crix and Jake falling to the ground! In the confusion Jake didn't even notice as his Thunder Stone flew out of his bag!

Once the shockwaves had subsided, both Jake and Crix managed to rise to their feet.

Having recovered from Project X's attack, Crix began to retaliate. After crossing his arms, the Electivire surrounding them in orange flame, before charging towards his opponent! Upon reaching the transform Pokemon, Crix swung both arms at her, landing a direct hit, and causing Project X to let out a pained cry!

For her second attack, Project X began to collect more energy, before firing a Psychic wave out at Crix, causing the Electivire to stumble backwards upon impact!

Regaining his footing, Crix covered his entire body in electricity, before rushing towards his opponent. Upon making contact with Project X, both the transform Pokemon, and Crix seemed to stumble back, each taking a fair amount of damage from the attack.

"Ok Crix, use Fire Punch, t-then use Ice Punch!" Jake exclaimed.

Starting things off, Project X began to gather a large amount of fighting energy between it's hands, forming a sphere with it. The transform Pokemon then fired the ball of energy out at Crix, prompting a pained cry from the Electivire as he fell back slightly.

Angered by the Mewtwo's assault, Crix coated his fist in flames, before rushing towards his opponent. Upon reaching the transform Pokemon, Crix swung his arm into the Mewtwo, sending her stumbling back.

For her second attack, Project X once again began to stamp the ground, causing the building to shake and Crix and Jake to fall off their feet.

As the shockwaves subsided, Crix rose once more to face his opponent. Covering his fist in icy energy, the Electivire rushed towards his opponent, before slamming his fist into the transform Pokemon!

"Crix, g-go with Dual Chop, then Thunder!" Jake ordered.

Starting the round off, Project X began to amass even more energy in it's body, before releasing a Psychic wave of it! Homing in on Crix, the Electivire let out a pained cry as the powerful wave of energy sent him stumbling backwards.

For his first attack, Crix focused draconic energy into his arms, causing them to glow purple. The thunderbolt Pokemon then rush towards his opponent, before striking the transform Pokemon with each of it's arms!

Angered by Crix's assault, Project X began to gather grass energy in front of itself, creating a sphere with it. After a moment, the transform Pokemon flung the ball of Energy at her opponent. As the ball of energy crashed into him, Crix let out a pained cry, before toppling over in defeat!

"Crix, no!" Jake cried out, quickly rushing to the Electivire's side.
With Crix showing no signs of getting up, all that Jake could do was return him to his Thunder Ball.
"Y-you were great, now rest up." He murmured, before stuffing the Thunder Ball in his bag.
It was hopeless, Jake realized. Crix had been his last truly healthy Pokemon. Anyone left had already sustained too much damage, and would surely fall to the traps laid upon the floor. As he pondering on what to do, a sudden tug on his pant leg snapped him back to reality.
Glancing at the floor, Jake noticed just who had been pulling on his pant leg. Once Project X had revealed herself, Jake had totally forgotten about Hazel's presence in the room!

"Hazel..y-you're willing to battle?" Jake questioned.
"I-I...r-really don't have a c-choice." The Eevee stammered.
"Right...Ok then Hazel, let's give this our all! S-start with Bite, then Take Down!" Jake ordered.

Starting things off, Project X began to draw power from within herself, forming a sphere of Aura with the energy! After waiting a moment, the transform Pokemon fired the sphere of energy out at Hazel! Upon making contact with the move, Hazel let out a sharp cry, before flying back across the room!

Rising to his feet, Hazel turned to face Project X once more! Covering his teeth in a dark aura, the Eevee sped towards the Mewtwo, before biting down hard on her flesh, causing Project X to cry out.

For it's second attack, Project X began to gather icy energy in front of itself, before firing a beam of the Ice out at Hazel! As the frosty beam of energy struck him, Hazel couldn't help but emit another sharp cry!

In retaliation, Hazel charged towards his opponent, his body glowing with a bronze aura! Upon reaching Project X, Hazel slammed into the Mewtwo with all his might, sending both the transform Pokemon, as well as himself, stumbling back!

"Hazel, g-go with Quick Attack, then Bite!" Jake ordered.

Starting things off, Hazel began to charge towards his opponent at a great speed! Upon reaching Project X, the Eeeve slammed into her with all his might!

In retaliation, Project X gathered more energy inside itself, before releasing a Psychic wave throughout the room. Unable to react in time, Hazel emitted a harsh cry as the powerful psychic attack sent him tumbling backwards.

Determined to stay in the fight, Hazel laced his teeth with dark energy, before rushing towards his opponent. Once he had reached the transform Pokemon, Hazel bit down on her as hard as he could, causing Project X to let out a sharp cry!

For her second attack, Project X began to Focus the last of her fighting energy between her hands, forming a sphere with it. The Mewtwo then blasted the sphere of energy towards Hazel!
As the ball of fighting energy made contact with Hazel, the Eevee let out a sharp shriek, before flying back into his trainer, sending the two falling to the ground.

"Pathetic." Project X spat, her voice having a familiar echo to Jake.

"Is that all you've truly got? I should have figured. If the Eevee can't even form a proper sentence, how could it stand to give me a little challenge?" Project X taunted, slowly approaching the pair as she did so.

"Now how about we stop wasting my time and just end this, hmm?"

"N-never!" Hazel exclaimed, rising to face the Mewtwo once more.

"How cute, but you're really in no condition to fight me. How about you be a good little Eevee and stand aside. Or do you have a death wish?" Project X questioned.

"I-I won't back down!" Hazel exclaimed, surprising Jake and even himself at his sudden courage.
"M-my teammates and I..w-we came here to p-protect this world from Team Catalyst. A-and they did their part...e-every last one of them, a-and now it's my turn." The Eevee continued.
"E-except now we know i-it's not Team Catalyst we should have b-been looking out for. B-by aiming to slaughter millions o-of people, y-you're not as bad as Team Catalyst, your worse!" Hazel continued.
"A-and I'll do e-everything in my power to stop y-you!" The Eevee finished.

With Project X distracted by his speech, Hazel rushed over to the Thunder Stone Jake had dropped earlier, and slapped his paw onto it.

Instantaneously, the stone evaporated, and Hazel began to glow with energy!
"Hazel, y-you're evolving!" Jake exclaimed, taking the opportunity to rise to his feet as Hazel began to transform! He began to grow taller, and the fur on his body began to spike out! His legs began to toughen up, and more spiky fur began to cover his back.
Once the light faded, Hazel was no longer a Eevee, but a !

Admiring Hazel's new form, Jake quickly took out his Pokedex, before scanning the Jolteon.

"Jolteon, the lightning Pokemon, and the evolved form of Eevee. An Electric type." The Pokedex droned.
"When its fur stands on end, that's a sign it's about to give off a jolt of electricity. It can send out electrical charges of about 10,000 volts."

"Alright Hazel, let's turn this around! S-start with Pin Missile, then use Discharge!" Jake ordered.

With his new found speed, Hazel began to gather bug energy inside his body, causing his fur to stand on end! From his pointy fur, five missiles of energy shot out, before homing in on Project X! Unable to react in time, the transform Pokemon let out a pained cry as all five projectiles sent her stumbling back.

In retaliation, the Mewtwo released another wave of Psychic energy out at Hazel, dealing a large amount of damage to the Jolteon!

For his second attack, Hazel began to tap into his new electrical energy pool, before sending sparks of electricity throughout the room!

Angered by the Jolteon's assault, Project X let out a cry, summoning several sharp stones around itself. After floating around the transform Pokemon for a moment, the rocks shout out towards Hazel, prompting a sharp cry from him as the stones dug into his flesh.

As the round came to a close, it was clear to see both Pokemon were barely standing. It all came down to the next attack, Jake realized.

"It's time to end this once and for all Hazel! Hidden Power!" Jake exclaimed.

Tapping into a power hidden deep with in himself, three orbs began to surround the Jolteon. The orbs had a soft blue glow to them, like the ever changing ocean!

At the same time, Project X also began to draw from a hidden power, summoning three orbs around itself. These orbs had a harsh red glow to them, like the destruction of a burning fire!

With both Pokemon ready to go, they each fired their respective orbs at one another! After clashing, it seemed Hazel's will was stronger, and his Hidden Power effortless cut through Project X's, before slamming into the transform Pokemon.

Letting out a deafening cry, Project X began to glow, before returning to it's Ditto form.

This was it, they had won! They had saved the world from Project X's destruction! And yet, as he watched Project X fall to the ground, Jake couldn't help but feel terrible about what he had done.
Project X had threatened to kill all of humanity, so why was his victory so bitter sweet? Their friendship was nothing but a tool for the transform Pokemon, so why was he trying to hold onto it? Jake didn't truly know the answer, but he did know one thing.

He had to help.

With Hazel be his side, the pair quickly rushed over to Sophie, not knowing quite what to expect...
