You shrug, and bring out two of your partners, a Litwick and a Gengar. You pat the Litwick on its head to get him off of your leg, the Ghost type turning to face its adversaries with a glare that looks more cute than anything else, at least to you. Your Gengar, however, is slightly less enthused to be outside, informing you that they were just napping. You tell them to get over it, for battle is nigh, and you are in need of her assistance, after all.

"A talking Gengar? That's weird." Tara says, slightly surprised, but not intimidated. Aimee is much the same, more curious than anything.

"Yeah, how'd you manage that, huh?" she asks.

Marie then delightedly rips into your opponents, metaphorically at least: shaming their lack of proper manners probably wouldn't do much to affect a gangster, but the Genger's quip about makeup sets Aimee off.

"That's not makeup! It's blood, Shredder here tore off a Yungoos' tail just yesterday!" she says, clearly meaning to make it sound as intimidating as possible. Perhaps it wouldn't be a good idea to provoke either girl any further-the Carvanha seems to only grow angrier, especially as Aimee does. Thus, you instruct Marie to belay her trash talk and prepare to fight, and give both your Pokemon their orders.

"Henchy, Imprison that Gengar then hit it with Payback! Finish with a Shadow Ball to the Litwick!" Tara orders.

"Shredder, Taunt that Gengar, then put the Litwick in a Whirlpool! End off with an Assurance to Gengar!" Aimee says, the Carvanha grinning, pleased to finally have orders.

The battle begins in earnest, Marie quickly floating over to the Yamask, Henchy, and delivering a shadowy punch right into its face. The opposing Ghost type begins an ominous chant, and a glowing black ring wraps around Marie, leaving her Imprisoned, unable to use any moves the two Pokemon have in common.

Wisp takes the opportunity to jump into action, conjuring a vortex of flame around the Yamask, leaving it singed for its every attempt to escape its prison. Henchy is fed up at this point, muttering incomprehensible curses between groans of pain, and its hands glow an ominous purple before twin bolts of retribution strike Marie dead on-a strong dose of Payback, as it were. Though the attack was executed, flawlessly, and Marie will be feeling the sting, it certainly wasn't devastating.

Shredder seizes the opportunity to jump in, mocking Marie's foolhardiness to simply rush into battle like that, Taunting her quite effectively. In anger, she attempts to use Night Shade, but the black ring's glow intensifies-it seems that move is sealed off for now. Frustrated, she doesn't even bother trying Confuse Ray-it's probably sealed off anyway, in her mind.

Henchy takes advantage of the confusion, launching a dark purple orb into Wisp, the Litwick grunting in irritation at the super effective attack. Wisp charges its body with electricity, loosing a potent Shock Wave into Shredder, who howls in pain and snaps its jaws menacingly. It's glare intensifies, and suddenly you notice that something's off about the rain. It has begun to intensify, and...swirl, even, and now you see it: the droplets concentrate around Wisp and coagulate into a Whirlpool, washing the poor Ghost-Fire Type in a circle.

Pleased with its work, Shredder looks towards Marie, who has a not-so flattering look towards the Carvanha. Entire body glowing black, Shredder lunges at Marie, the Assurance attack reacting to the prior damage, causing Marie a great deal of discomfort, but she shakes it off. Wisp concentrates on finding its footing, and charges an Energy Ball, timing its shot so as to graze the Carvanha's top fins. The piranha cries out once more, snapping wildly. Is this thing even under control!?

Wisp and Marie aren't badly damaged, though Marie is Imprisoned, and Wisp has a Whirlpool around them that only gets stronger in the rain...

What's your next move?
It seems the girls had more up their sleeve than anticipated. No matter, this wasn't terribly bad. Just his Litwick stuck in a whirlpool and his Gengar only able to use like, two moves. Worse has happened.

"You idiot you gonna just stand there?" Marie yelled, the Gengar's mood souring even more. Why was she always such a sourpuss. Whatever, he knew what he needed to do.

"Hey Marie, wanna know what the best way to relive anger is?"

"Shooting something?"

"No. Shadow Punch the Yamask three times. Let your fury consume you," Austin ordered, and he saw Marie smirk.

"Wisp, use Acid Armor to become one with the water a phase out of the Whirlpool. Cover the fish in a Smog before roasting both of them with Heat Wave!"

He could hear Wisp respond. It was a risky tactic, but no pain meant no gain, right? Besides, things were about to become... extra toasty.
