The sky above had turned a deep purple as the sun disappeared across the horizon and the daylight was quickly following. Visibility was getting worse by the minute as stars began to pop up all across the night sky, so Ajax supported the group with his newly mastered Flash technique.

Another haunting howl echoed across the mountainside as they progressed up the steep and rocky path. As Jayson and his Pokemon came to a bend in the path, they stopped for a moment to catch their breaths. The moon had begun to turn a more ominous red in color by each passing minute as it rose further into the sky. With no time to lose, they briskly continued up the path, offering only the bare minimum of caution to make sure they didn’t slip on any loose rocks. Rockruff could be charging headfirst into some serious danger, so the sooner they retrieved it the better.

It was at long last that Jayson and his Pokemon finally caught up to the young brown pup. It was standing still like a statue in the middle of a circular clearing in the path. Tall, jagged rock formations encircled three quarters of the path while a wall of dense pine trees stood beyond the trail before them. As Jayson took a moment to catch his breath, he was relieved to finally reach the Rockruff before it had befallen any other danger. Or so he thought. As he reached out to pet the canine, he could see that Rockruff was on high alert and didn’t even flinch in reaction to his contact. That was when he finally realized; it was eerily silent up here. No howls or any other sounds seemed to fill the air like before.

As he looked back up, a tall shadow stood perched atop one of the surrounding rock formations. Piercing red eyes glowed in the moonlight. The figure leapt down into the clearing and emitted a low growl. It had a reddish fur coloration and stood upright on two legs; much like Madoka’s Lulu, it was unmistakably a midnight form Lycanroc. From the look of things, it appeared to be alone, likely on a reconnaissance mission for the pack. If it were to alert others to their location with a howl, things could turn ugly fast. What will Jayson do?
They'd followed the trail into the night, Jayson was thankful for Ajax's training as the Grass types new move illuminated their surroundings when the sun finally set beyond the horizon. Eventually they caught up with the fast recovering Rockruff, the young pup stood motionless, bathed in the light of eerie red moon. The clearing in which it stood was large, surrounded on three sides jagged rock formations. A forest was visible on the other side of the rocks, but more importantly, a Lycanroc sat atop one of the stone pillars. The Midnight Lycanroc was silent and alone, likely a scout sent ahead of the pack.

Tomoe begin to shiver in fear, sending a chill down Jayson's spine. Ajax held a type advantage over the Lycanroc but he likely wouldn't be able to handle it alone. Tomoe was on a level field with the Rock type, holding an advantage over it with her Water typing and being exposed by her Rock type weakness. They'd been working on overcoming her fearful nature. Most of the time she was just scared of interacting with other Pokemon. When it came to battles, she normally became filled with excitement, but for some reason she wasn't feeling it. "Come on now Tomoe", Jayson coerced. "Rockruff was hurt when we found it, you don't want it to get hurt again do you?" Jayson felt the Wimpod scuttle down his leg. She continued to scuttle out in front of him, still shaking in fear. "You don't have to be afraid Tomoe, Ajax is with you and you're more than capable of holding your own. Show us how brave you can really be!"

Suddenly the small bug began to glow, startling Ajax as she begins to shine brighter than his flash. Tomoe drastically increases in size, rising onto two legs and sprouting six arms. Two of the arms were much larger than the others, sporting two large claws. As the light faded, Jayson was treated to the image of her new form, Tomoe had evolved into a Golisopod!

Tomoe evolved into a Golisopod!

Tomoe assessed her new assets, no longer shaking in fear as she realizes the amount of strength she had just gained. Jayson was also much more confident, sure that with her new strength, Tomoe would be more than capable of dispatching the lone Lycanroc.

"Alright Tomoe, grab it with a shockingly fast First Impression before it can get away. Scald it then slash across it with a Razor Shell! Ajax you get in there as well, stick a Leech Seed on it then charge in with an Iron Head. Follow up with a Giga Drain to sap away its strength."
