Cortoza Updates - Set Twenty-Two

Missingno. Master: “Hah!” Pele barks, eyes flaring up like flames. “What do you know of what a spirit needs?” She glances dismissively from Kyle to Ieni and the two Ponyta behind you before looking back at you. “But, so be it. You are clearly done talking and I will not be attacked in my own home!”

Around you, the Volcarona begin Quivering in some sort of Dance, while the Larvesta lever themselves upward and take aim, the entire cluster of Bug Pokémon crowding you and jostling around until they’ve put themselves as best they can between you and the pink Volcarona. At the same time, the lava level in the pit rises some more, bubbling and popping and raising the heat and Pressure in the air.

Kyle is not bothered much by the heat, having once lived in a volcano himself, and he takes the opportunity to rake his Claws against the ground, Honing them to an edge in preparation for the coming battle. He keeps a sharp eye on the Larvesta and, when they begin Shooting String at him, he dodges, slicing any strings that get too close. He also takes that opportunity to get closer to the pink Volcarona, his fist beginning to crackle with electricity as he leaps to Punch Pele herself. She barely glances at him as she flutters away, a red-horned Larvesta throwing itself between them to take the hit. Kyle’s Punch hits with the boom of Thunder, knocking the Larvesta over, and it wiggles as it tries to get upright. Nothing else is fast enough to interfere as Kyle moves immediately into his Aerial Ace, slashing into and past Pele before she can react.

Pele barely flinches at the attack, only hmphing before she sweeps a hand in front of her. A Wave of Heat buffets Kyle and you and Meowth, though the attack does nothing more than trigger Kyle’s Flash Fire. You, on the other hand, feel like you just opened the door to an industrial-sized oven. It’s immediately followed by a gust of Air that feels sharp enough to Cut and Kyle has to brace himself as the Critical attack targets his footing.

Pele glances sidelong at you. “You bring a Fire Pokémon to fight a fire spirit?” She grins, sharp as obsidian. “Intelligent. But I would expect nothing less of a man who dares fight a volcano.”

As the winds die down, you manage to catch yelling from behind you. Ieni sounds shocked and dismayed, asking what you’re doing, that’s Pele, why are you fighting her? Sunfire sounds horrified and on the verge of tears, apologizing repeatedly to Ieni, to the other Ponyta, to Pele herself for volunteering to take you up here. Blitzwind, Ieni’s Ponyta, sounds disturbed, suggesting that you must not be Pele’s Chosen if you’re fighting her, but then what has the village been hosting for the day?

Things are escalating quickly and the battle's barely begun. How will you handle this situation?
