Surprised at the turn your simple fishing trip had taken, Lune takes any decision out of your hands by digging her paws down into the beach and lobbing a Sandy Attack at the Mareanie's face. Taken aback, more focused on its meal than you or either of your Eevee, the Mareanie falls back, using its tentacles to try - mostly in vain - and wipe the sand from its eyes. With the opportunity given by the starfish-like Pokémon, you (perhaps a bit resignedly) commit to the battle your Eevee has started, thinking up a strategy to execute.

Per your guidance, your two Eevee rush forward, leaving the Corsola to hide behind your legs. Though it looks for a moment like both are charging at the Mareanie, at the last second Soleil extends a metaphorical Helping Hand to Lune, giving the more energetic Eevee an extra boost to her Quick Attack. Ramming into the non-spiny body of the Mareanie, Lune sends the Water-type backwards into the surf, which thankfully for it clears its eyes enough to see. As the Brutal Star Pokémon looks angrily at Lune, though, you see that the Sand Attack had a lasting effect; judging by how the Mareanie's gaze seems situated just a bit to Lune's left, its vision is still blurred. You're proved correct when the Mareanie's own attack, a lunge at Lune with its Poisonous Stingers, sends the starfish-like Pokémon sailing harmlessly past Lune's left.

Grumbling in annoyance at its misstep and still squinting to see its targets, the Mareanie visibly decides on another tactic. Spinning about in a circle, the Mareanie throws down a barrage of rather Toxic looking Spikes at the feet of both your Eevee. It seems that if brute force can't be counted on, this Poison-type is not above using indirect methods of inflicting damage. Lune and Soleil best be careful proceeding.

The battle has just begun and things are mostly in your favor, both from a numbers standpoint and from the good hit Lune managed. With the new 'toxic' terrain and the Mareanie being far from out, though, there is still time for the tides to turn. What will you do?
'Well this is a thorny predicament. That Mareanie sure is a prick, building toxic relationships like this,' Mélina couldn't help thinking to herself, probably to distract herself a bit from the problem at stake.

The girls had the upper hand against that Corsola-munching fiend, but those Toxic Spikes' presence were an annoyance; the pair of Evolution Pokémon are typically physical in battle, and these thorns were getting in the way of that. Their trainer thanked herself though for having spent some time training the two before adventuring, so they would have at least a little bit more flexibility in their strategies.

"There there, it'll be alright, little one," the woman comforted the Coral Pokémon who took shelter behind her legs. "We won't let it eat that last branch on your head, ok? Stay near me, and we'll handle it for you while you're safe and sound here." As much as she doesn't want to admit it at the moment, the pink water creature was starting to pull on her heartstrings, reminding of her younger, bullied self. Minus the whole 'eaten alive' part, that is.

"Soleil and Lune," she then ordered, trying to get her mind back at the situation at hand, "in unison, try to clean up all that spiky mess with Swift, and maybe hit the Mareanie in the process too!"

"And after," she continued, "Lune, since you're closer to it, distract it with your cute puppy Baby-Doll Eyes. When it is, Soleil, hit it with another Swift attack!"
