To my updatees: I will be writing updates either tomorrow or Friday!! I know there has been a bit of a delay, I've had a rough few weeks but I'm slowly getting back into the groove of things. Sorry if this post brought you here, Gary just asked me to reply now since he's writing updates.

Standing firm before Kei, Patches, and Mio, Stufful was ready to give all it had to defend his newfound friends and stand up for himself. Taking advantage of the moment, Patches eagerly hurried over to the bell and gave it a quick ding to signify the start of the match.

The two small bears stared each other down as the match began, neither ready to budge an inch just yet. Pancham glared at Stufful a nasty Leer, sending a shiver down his spine, but the teddy bear retaliated by flashing his Baby-Doll Eyes, catching Pancham off guard. Pancham growled and leapt forward, giving Stufful a Karate Chop to the head for good damage, but Stufful closed his eyes and patiently began to Bide his time and store his energy.

Seeing as Stufful didn’t appear to be fighting back, Pancham smirked arrogantly and unleashed a flurry of Comet Punches on Stufful, hitting him four times in a row. Despite his Fluffy fur protecting him, the hits were starting to add up on Stufful, but he then opened his eyes and released a blast of energy back onto Pancham, sending him flying into the ropes that surrounded the ring. Pancham winced, clearly in pain as Stufful’s attack had reflected a lot of the damage back onto him. Pancham slowly got back to his feet, seething, as he couldn’t believe that the formerly wimpy Stufful could hit him like this. Fired up more than ever, Pancham charged forward, ready to strike with a flurry of Arm Thrusts. What will Stufful do?
“Charrrr!!” Kei the Charmeleon was grinning wide. The match had only just begun but Stufful was already showing that bully that he wasn’t actually weak at all. Mio the Pikachu was excited too but she wasn’t really able to focus because she was busy trying to stop Patches from climbing into the ring herself. “It’ll only be for a second Mio!” Every time Patches’ hands would come near the ring, Mio was quick to give her a bit of a shock as a warning. “It’s just that they’re so cuuuute! They have these little grumpy faces that are adorable and I just want to hug them both!!” Patches was feeling disappointed and continued to complain to Mio who wasn’t backing down. Kei could certainly understand her yearning for wanting to give them hugs since he was quite a hugger himself, but he knew that this was not the time for that and decided to let Mio handle it.

Stufful was completely oblivious to what was going on outside of the ring. He could hear Kei cheering him on which made him happy and that was all he needed. He was proud that his Bide proved to be as successful as it was; he knew now that Pancham was finally going to take him seriously. He could see that Pancham was prepared to go all out so he knew that he couldn’t hold back. After Leering at Pancham, he was going to run in and Tackle it down and then give it a taste of his Brutal Swing!

With no time to think, Jotaro’s chivalrous nature propelled him into action. The plucky Lombre charged forward at the hungry Liepard, cocking back his fist as it began to glow softly. Fangs bared, the Liepard stared down at the mother Noctowl beneath its claws, ready to sink its teeth into its prey. As Jotaro neared, Liepard’s pointed ears twitched, detecting its approaching attacker, and it leapt off of its prey just as Jotaro’s fist glanced the side of it with a Drain Punch.

Back arched, fangs glistening, and eyes shining in the darkness of the forest, Liepard arched its back and hissed angrily at Jotaro. The Lombre might have saved Noctowl’s life for now, but now he had gained the sole attention of a hungry predator that just had its meal taken away from it. Liepard’s hiss turned into a menacing Growl to show Jotaro that it means business.

As the battle between these two Pokemon began to unfold, Hiero darted over to the baby Hoothoot’s side, securing the chick in his arms. He glanced over at the mother Noctowl, who was struggling to help herself off her back. It appeared as if her wing was lightly sprained in the strike, and was going to have trouble moving around enough to assist in this battle. Sizing Jotaro up, the Liepard hissed once more. This time, the tone of the hiss came in a much more condescending manner, almost as if it was Tormenting Jotaro into doubting certain battle strategies that he might take in the future. Up to this point, Jotaro had been operating on instinct, but this seed of doubt might require some of Hiero’s assistance pertaining to what he should do next.
Jotaro struggled to respond to the cat Pokemon's Torment, turning toward its trainer for direction on how to proceed. Hiero curled up into a ball and cupped the small owl Pokemon into his chest protectively. "Don't worry little guy - we'll reunite you with your parent and sibling soon enough, I promise." Hiero gently stroked the Hoothoot's head to keep it calm, letting it know he was in safe hands - literally.

"Noctowl! Don't move, or you'll make it worse! Let Jotaro handle this!" Hiero turned toward the Lombre and directed the Pokemon. "Jotaro! Hit it with a Seed Bomb before following up with another Drain Punch from above! Pound that Liepard into the ground - Noctowl and its children are counting on you. I am too, for that matter!"

Jotaro nodded and took a calmer demeanor once more, smirking at his trainer confidently. In an instant, all signs of nervousness were wiped off of the Lombre's face. Hiero knew that the Pokemon sometimes felt like he was a superhero of sorts, and he was more than happy to give the Lombre his time to shine in the spotlight, especially as the underdog (which Hiero imagined probably made the Lombre even more excited to fight the leopard Pokemon).

The Liepard arched its back, bared its fangs in a growl, and spread its paws in an offensive stance. Jotaro was somewhat weak, but Hiero was absolutely certain his lily-pad Pokemon would be able to stop the predator from getting to its would-be dinner.

TheKnightsFury:
Hoping to leave the decision to his Pokemon, Jayson waited until Ajax the Chespin turned his sights towards the cave in anticipation. However, Jayson’s team was not the best equipped to handle the pitch-black cave and would require some extra training to illuminate the way. Upon hearing this, Madoka smiled and clapped her hands together. “Wonderful, come here then young Chespin and I will teach you!” She smiled warmly at Ajax and beckoned him closer before pulling out a Pokeball and tossing it into the air.

There was a bright flash and before them appeared a large rock that floated above the ground. Eight rocks spiked out of it in every direction, giving it the appearance of the sun. “Your instructor today will be none other than Taiyo,” Madoka spoke as the Solrock quietly stared down from above. “Let us begin, shall we? Learning Flash allows you to light up even the darkest of places with a light like the sun. In order to do so, you’ll need to focus on the sun’s energy and replicate it inside of yourself.” As Ajax began to look up to the sky, Madoka called out, “Wait! Don’t focus on the actual sun though! You’ll blind yourself. Focus on Taiyo here instead.” Taiyo slowly began to glow a soft white as a warmth emanated from its rocky body. It was quite relaxing as the normally energetic Ajax soon fell almost into a relaxed, trancelike state.

“Good, remember this feeling,” Madoka said in a soft voice. “The power behind this light is very much tied to one’s own mental state. It requires a relaxed and courageous spirit that is willing to peer into the darkness of one’s own self and light it up. As your confidence grows, so too will your light.” With his eyes closed, there was a brief glimmer to the quills atop of Ajax’s head. “Wonderful,” Madoka said with a smile, “It’s now time to harness this energy and put it to the test.”

Madoka brought Ajax, Jayson, and the rest of his Pokemon up to the steps shrine’s entrance. On either side of them was a large stone slab where Madoka’s two Lycanroc rest, the midday one keeping a watchful eye open on the visitors as they ascended. “The only warning I have is that it might be easier for Ajax to concentrate if there are less of his companions around to distract him.” The old wooden stairs creaked as they made it to the top. Using an old metal key, Madoka turned the lock and opened the door to the shrine. The smell of incense filled their noses as they stepped inside the shrine. The interior was somewhat plain but there were a number of traditional objects assembled on the central altar used to worship the shrine’s deity. In the middle of the altar was a large stone that had been carved out into some kind of sculpture, but it was hard to make out what it was with a curtain made out of bamboo leaves obscuring it.

“Come this way,” Madoka said as she quickly bowed to the altar before taking the visitors around it to a door in the back. Once they were back outside, they headed across a wooden patio that lead to another staircase. A large hole in the mountain opened up before them like a mouth, as the staircase seemed to descend straight down into the dark cavern. “I cannot go with you from here, but in case you get lost, Tsuki will be your guide.” Madoka pulled out another Pokeball, this time sending out a crescent shaped rock that floated before them. “Tsuki will not interfere with your journey, but it will show you the way out if Ajax has trouble completing his training.”

With Madoka staying behind, Jayson and his Pokemon descended the staircase into the dark cavern. Ajax hadn’t fully mastered the move yet, but there was no time like the present to get started. As the Lunatone mostly hung around the cave’s entrance, all Jayson could see was a solitary red eye. It was now up to him to decide where to go next. Visibility was nonexistent at the moment, but maybe with the faint glow from Ajax they’ll be able to see a couple of feet in front of them at least. It was an odd feeling being surrounded by darkness like this; the sensory deprivation seemed to heighten Jayson’s other senses. While the cave was cold and silent at first, as his senses started to kick in, her could hear a number of noises in the distance. Water dripped from a stalactite into a pool of water while the scratching and fluttering of Zubats quietly echoed from high above. Not too far off there was a muffled whimpering sound that seemed to catch Jayson’s attention. What would he do?



Heather:
Set off by the boy’s behavior, Mint stormed down the hill and demanded that Marcus fight her with the rights to Kimmy’s Sentret on the line. Marcus smirked as Mint threatened him, “What, you want me to offer up a Pokemon but you offer nothing in return? On top of that you want me to use a Pokemon that was just in battle against your fresh one. That doesn’t sound like a good deal to me. What’s to stop me from telling my parents that an older Pokemon trainer was beating up on kids?” He quickly tossed a Pokeball and then crossed his arms. The ball popped open to reveal a Sneasel, who crossed its arms as well. “Tell you what, I’ll battle you, but your opponent will be Sneasel here.”

Without a moment to spare, Mint called forth Celeste to battle, as the Chatot looked ready to go. Celeste flew off of her perch from her trainer’s arm and into the air. Sneasel moved into action too, darting forward to Attack the Chatot Quickly but halted midway as it heard Marcus’ voice call out “Stop!” It looked around back at its trainer confused by the Chatter, but Marcus gritted his teeth. “What are you doing? Get back out there and fight!” Sneasel resumed its advance on Celeste, who squawked out a loud “TOT!!!” as the Hyper Voice rung in Sneasel’s ears for considerable damage. Despite the pain in its head, Sneasel lunged at Celeste and with one move quickly Chopped her right in the Throat. Celeste gasped in pain, and as she attempted to use her vocal chords began to cough hoarsely.

While Celeste had gotten off to a good start, having dealt solid damage to the Sneasel, her ability to speak was now impaired for the time being. Despite its ears ringing, Sneasel looked like it wasn’t ready to give up just yet as Marcus looked to continue fighting. What will Mint do?



Naruxami:
Leo laughed as Isaac joked about buying him a drink. Deciding to play along, the ranger walked up to the cupboard and poured a small glass of whiskey. “Here, this might actually take the edge off for a minute, if you desire.” With Isaac now ready to be treated, Leo started by gently dabbing the wound with a damp cloth to clean away the dirt. “Alright, think of something pleasant on the count of three. One… two… three!” Leo then sprayed some disinfectant on the wound which would surely sting. Once he was finished, Leo wrapped some gauze around Isaac’s torso, covering the length of the gash. “Alright, we’re all done here. Once again, sorry about Smokey. Just be careful next time, okay?”

As Isaac looked at Leo puzzled, expecting to be handed some kind of citation, the ranger was holding out a plastic bag instead. “Use this to store your trash next time. One Burnt Forest is enough for the Cloud Garden,” he said with a smile, a joke that probably went over with the other rangers better. As Leo put away the first aid kit, the healing machine let out a beep, indicating that it was finished. “Perfect timing. Also, if you’re hungry help yourself! The kitchenette is stocked for any travelers that pass through and need a bite to eat. There’s Pokemon food in there too.” Now that he was patched up and free to go, it was up to Isaac to decide what to do next. Before heading out with his Pokemon, he could grab a quick meal for himself and his team. Where Isaac goes from here is up to him. (Please reply in whatever area color you choose.)



Patches:
Despite Patches’ eager attempt to climb into the ring and Mio’s efforts to prevent that from happening, Stufful remained focused on the fight at hand as Pancham was giving him a run for his money. As Pancham picked itself up from being knocked against the ropes, it charged forward, ready to attack. With little time to think, Stufful had to react quickly and fight back!

Pancham came in fast, unleashing a series of Arm Thrusts on the Stufful. He let out a pained whimper as Pancham’s palms pushed him back four times for super effective damage. The only saving grace was his Fluffy plush fur absorbing some of the contact. Stufful Leered angrily, the defiant act causing Pancham to drop its guard a bit before ramming into it with a Tackle. Pancham grit its teeth and Tackled Stufful right back before Pancham began Working itself Up into a frenzy. Stufful charged at Pancham while flailing his arms wildly, hitting him with a Brutal Swing.

As the two Pokemon paused to catch their breaths, both were aware that a victor would be decided soon. Both were nearing the ends of their rope, and prepared to launch one last desperate attack to overcome the other. Through heavy panted breaths, Pancham glared across the ring at Stufful. There was almost a gleam of excitement in its eyes as it slowly began to see its opponent as less of a victim to bully and more of a rival. Pancham then squared off against Stufful once again, ready to hit the bear with its strongest Karate Chop. What will Stufful do?



Deoxys:
With the Liepard’s back arched, legs coiled like a spring, and ready to pounce, Jotaro looked back to his trainer for advice. The big cat’s previous Torment left him unsure of himself, so some guidance and reassurance from his trainer would go a long way. Hiero, who had just finished comforting the young Hoothoot, turned to his Lombre and issued a strategy. With a newfound direction and resolve in battle, Jotaro stared down the Liepard once again and made his move.

Jotaro was fast, but the Liepard was faster as it hissed a menacing Growl in Jotaro’s direction. The Lombre’s spirit wavered only slightly as he opened his mouth and spat forward a number of small seeds at the Liepard. Upon impact, the Seeds exploded like a miniature Bomb, disorienting the cat and leaving it open as Jotaro seized the opportunity to leap into the air above the Liepard. Jotaro Punched downward at the Liepard with all his might and dug his fist into its back, proceeding to Drain its energy in the process. Liepard hissed angrily through the pain and turned to unleash a flurry of Fury Swipes on Jotaro. The Liepard’s claws connected three times for moderate damage as Jotaro winced.

Things were going to plan so far for Jotaro and Hiero, and if they played their cards right, that cat could be chased out of there before they knew it. The Liepard took some solid hits this time around and began to breathe heavier as it planned to Pursue Jotaro and his next move. The entire time this was happening, the mother Noctowl did not take her eyes off of the predator, silently cheering on the Pokemon defending her and her chick.

Mint snorted derisively as Marcus tried to act tough, asking what would stop him from telling his parents that she was the "real bully" in the situation.

"What's stopping you from doing that? Kimmy's something we in the business call a witness, you know. Both our words against yours." she said with a confident smile.

That, however, was seemingly a step too far on Mint's part. Marcus angrily brought out another Poke Ball, and from it, he released a black and pink Pokémon Mint knew all too well: a Sneasel, the omnipresent pest of northern Sinnoh, but still a pretty cool Pokémon in Mint's books. Declaring that Mint's opponent would be the Sneasel instead, and making some jive about her forcing him to battle with a tired Pokémon, Mint grew more exasperated rather than intimidated. The type disadvantage didn't change anything much about their plan, really.

"Well excuuuuuuuse me, princess, it's not like I knew you had any other Pokémon to battle with. Why else would you be going for Kimmy's, anyway?" she said, her voice laden with unadulterated snark. "But enough talk. Have at you!" she added before he could reply.

And thus they got underway! Mint's strategy of confusing the Sneasel with Chatter seemed to be working without a hitch-right up until the Sneasel made a downright impressive leap and hit Celeste with a direct Throat Chop once it got back in action. At the sound of this, Sprocket reemerged from Mint's backpack.

"Be careful! Celeste's sound movezzzz won't work for a while!" he piped up, causing Mint to grimace. Sound moves were...just about all of Celeste's repertoire. And then she remembered-not all of said repertoire. A gleam came to the eyes of both Pokémon and Trainer. This was no setback at all, not for them, not in this situation! They still had one last trump card up their sleeves!

"So, thought you could win just by cutting my dear Celeste's voice off? Not the worst assumption, that does block off a great many of her moves...just not the right ones." Mint said, a confident grin on her face. "Celeste, keep that thing at bay with Heat Wave, and make it a pair of them! Don't let it get close!" she called. This was her moment, right here!

Despite Celese’s natural abilities as the vocal Pokemon that Chatot is being suppressed by the Sneasel’s Throat Chop, Mint was cool under pressure while ordering her Pokemon to turn up the heat against the ice type. However, in spite of her trash talking, Marcus was hardly fazed and remained focused on the battle at hand. As he overheard Mint’s strategy, he smiled and called out to his Sneasel, “You know what to do, Sneas. Don’t let it hit you!”

Celeste coughed again, trying to clear her throat as her wings flapped before Sneasel. The weasel glared back at the parrot and displayed its claws. As Celeste began to flap her wings harder, the friction began to heat up the air as she summoned a Heat Wave. However, as her wings kicked up a gust and pushed the air current forward, Celeste was shocked to find that the Sneasel had suddenly disappeared. Before she could realize that it had slipped past her defenses, it was already too late as Sneasel rammed into the Chatot from behind with a sneaky Feint Attack.

Marcus smirked and called out, “Now so tough now, are you? Let’s counter their hot air with some cold!” The Sneasel quickly nodded and began blowing a harsh Icy Wind that chilled Celeste to the bone. It was a direct hit, and the bird winced as she spun around. She was trying to keep up with the Sneasel to target her next attack, but it was just too fast for her at this point. When it looked as if Celeste wasn’t going to be able to keep up any further, a surge of energy suddenly flowed into her body. A whistle-like tweeting could be heard as it was none other than the small yellow bird on the sidelines dancing away and shaking its pompoms as it offered Celeste a Helping Hand. Now filled with a newfound confidence, Celeste began flapping her wings once again. This time, she summoned a Heat Wave so powerful that no amount of running around could dodge its effect.

Sneasel was clearly bothered as the temperature continued to rise. “Hey, that’s cheating!” Marcus called out through gritted teeth. “If that’s how they’re going to play it, then two can play at that game!” Marcus tossed two Pokeballs, releasing Ratty the Raticate and Kimmy’s old Sentret. Sneasel looked at its companions and beckoned them over as it smacked Celeste. Ratty joined in next, helping Beat the Chatot Up, followed by the reluctant Sentret. With tears in its eyes, Sentret was too timid to disobey its new trainer and lunged forward to hit Celeste as well. Celeste had taken quite a few hits this turn, but Sneasel wasn’t doing so hot either. What will Mint do?

As your confidence grows, so too will your light.” With his eyes closed, there was a brief glimmer to the quills atop of Ajax’s head. “Wonderful,” Madoka said with a smile, “It’s now time to harness this energy and put it to the test.”

Madoka brought Ajax, Jayson, and the rest of his Pokemon up to the steps shrine’s entrance. On either side of them was a large stone slab where Madoka’s two Lycanroc rest, the midday one keeping a watchful eye open on the visitors as they ascended. “The only warning I have is that it might be easier for Ajax to concentrate if there are less of his companions around to distract him.” The old wooden stairs creaked as they made it to the top.

Water dripped from a stalactite into a pool of water while the scratching and fluttering of Zubats quietly echoed from high above. Not too far off there was a muffled whimpering sound that seemed to catch Jayson’s attention. What would he do?


Madoka quickly instructed Ajax on the basics of using Flash. Using her Solrock to demonstrate, Madoka enlightened the young Chespin on what would be required for him to master the move. He had to let his inner light shine, he would need to be confident and courageous. Luckily these two traits were something the Chespin wasn't lacking, Jayson was sure with a bit of practice the Grass type would have the move mastered. He showed promise early, his quills glowing briefly as he attempted the move for the first time. It was a start.

With the basic instruction given, Madoka lead them towards the entrance to the shrine. At her suggestion, Jayson decided it was probably best for him to recall a few of his Pokemon. Alexander and Tangaroa wouldn't be needed too much from here and they would likely only serve as a distraction for Ajax, Alexander especially. Jayson recalled the Nidoking and Vaporeon into their Pokeballs, replacing them on his belt. Tomoe remained clinging to his back, the Wimpod would be fine there. Madoka provided them with a guide as well, revealing a Lunatone who would observe their progress through the shrine, only providing assistance if Ajax had trouble navigating.

Ajax led them through the entrance, it didn't take long for them to be in complete darkness. Jayson could barely see his hands in front of his face, Ajax would need to light things up. With his sight impaired, Jayson had to rely on his other senses. His nose was flooded with the smell of incense, while his ears picked up different noises. The dripping of water, the rustling of Zubat and most intriguingly, the whimpering of something nearby. Jayson felt movement on his back as Tomoe scuttled down his leg and onto the cave floor. He could hear her scuttle off in the direction of the whimpering, perhaps drawn to it due to her wimpy nature. Jayson didn't want the Wimpod getting into any unnecessary trouble, Ajax had to light things up quickly so they could find out what was going on.

"Alright Ajax, it is your time to shine", Jayson smiled, he could now see the Chespin as his quills began to glow like they had outside. "That's a good start but we are going to need more than that. You need to reach deep into yourself, think of what makes you happy, what gives you purpose. Think of your friendship with Alexander, think of our base and all the hard work you have put into. Think of how strong you have gotten since we first met, all the challenges we have been through and conquered. Let out your inner light Ajax, shine bright like a diamond, light the way for us. Use Flash Ajax and let's make our way towards the whimpering and Tomoe."

Brayden has finally set off on his own with Solemn the Squirtle by his side. Cutting off his family wealth in order to learn how commoners live has been very different for him. He never knew how to live the life of a commoner. Having everything handed to him made things easy, but Brayden is tired of living the life of wealth and fortune. It’s time for things to change. The breeze hit his face and sifted through his dark brown hair. He took in every breath that he could, and cherished it. Something was freeing about not being pestered by a butler every 5 minutes asking if he wanted sparkling water. Or being driven to every single destination he wanted to go to.

He found himself standing on a hill, looking down at the river where the suns beams danced along the water. He watched as the fishermen casted out their fishing lines, reeling in what seemed to be large catfish and rainbow trout’s. To the right of the docks were a mother and father sitting on the edge of the river, enjoying sandwiches while splashing their feet in the water. It made Brayden miss his mother and father back home. Their children run and play behind them giggling and shouting “Tag! You’re it!”. Brayden felt at peace as he sat next to a rock to take in the view. Its been a while since he’s seen something this breathtaking. He watched as the water flowed down the stream, just waiting for something to grab his attention.

Missingno. Master – It didn’t take long for a somewhat heartwarming moment to be forgotten and replaced with chaos, as usual. Fortunately, you were able to remain levelheaded in this situation because Ringo certainly wasn’t. It was also convenient that this was a situation in which you needed your Pokemon to act fast, and right now your very slow Pokemon was faster than ever. Dudley instantly forgot all about the Aipom and turned his attention toward the fire and began to take care of the flames with his Water Gun. He first aimed his water at the flames that were fast approaching the sleeping Kricketune. No surprise, he manages to stop the flames from reaching the sleeping Pokemon but his water also drenches the Kricketune, waking him up from his slumber. As Dudley turns his focus on other areas covered in fire, the Kricketune leaps up and looks around, completely startled. The Nanab Berries are both gone, it sees fire, and it just had water poured all over it. It was not a fun way to wake up and on top of everything, it’s feeling a bit sluggish. Angry, the Kricketune begins to Furiously Cut away at the air, flailing randomly. It hasn’t hit anything yet but it’s certainly a hazard.

Miror was feeling confident, his speed had increased and this time he knew he was going to be able to take the lead on that troublesome monkey. He runs up and uses a strong Drain Punch on Aipom, right in its face! Aipom recoils, annoyed at his lack of agility in this situation. It’s clear that you and your Pokemon are starting to get to it. It manages to Scratch Miror while he was still close. Then, next thing it knows, Aipom is being pelted by Seed Bombs. It uses its tail to try and shield itself from the attack but it is still causing a decent amount of damage. You can tell that Aipom is starting to get a little nervous now as it seems to be changing its focus away from the battle. (Miror gains 2 levels)

Meanwhile, Dudley is doing his best to put out the fire, but it is a lot of work for one Pokemon. “Right! Sand! You’re like, some kind of genius or something!” Ringo responds to your advice and then turns toward Lady the Herdier. “Lady, put out those flames with your Sand Attack!” Lady hears Ringo and then turns her head slightly sideways in confusion. Ringo wasn’t very experienced with using the family’s Pokemon so she wasn’t well informed on what exactly it was that the Herdier was capable of. Lady at least knew that Ringo was trying to get her to help so she wasn’t about to do nothing and figured she could maybe give Dudley a Helping Hand. On her way over to Dudley, Aipom got in the way. At some point, despite its lowered speed, it had gotten a hold of a stick with a flaming tip. Lady’s attention was drawn to the stick, completely forgetting about her plans to assist. Miror leaps into the air, preparing to Bounce down on his target. Aipom’s attention is still away from the fight, Lady went into a play bow and the Aipom threw the stick in such a way that Lady was able to catch it right out of the air. Aipom, reached out and grabbed onto Lady’s tail and next thing you know the Aipom is being taken away by Lady who is running away with a flaming stick. She was slowed down too but was still much faster than Aipom.

Miror comes crashing down to finish his move but completely misses his target since it was in the process of being carried away. “Why Lady!?! Why do you always do this!?! That stick is on FIRE, you’re going to spread it!!!” Ringo dashes off after the Herdier. Fortunately, the stick hadn’t caught anything else on fire but it was still quite a hazard. Dudley was finishing up with putting out the last of the flames from the tree, he was so fast that fortunately he ultimately managed to get it all under control without anyone’s help. However, the tree was pretty damaged and as soon as the flames were out, the Kricketune had managed to make its way over to it with its Fury Cutter and all it took was one hit to take out the whole tree and it tumbled down right in front of you, dividing you and Miror from Dudley. The Kricketune was exhausted and sat down by the tree. You could still hear Ringo yelling and the Pokemon getting away in the not too far off distance.


-------------------------

myahoo – The next round was beginning and Samuel and his Pokemon were fired up and ready to go. Your Pokemon seemed to be pretty into this as well. On Samuel’s side of the log, Odachi the Lurantis begins to use Growth in order to power herself up. As Reaper the Scyther goes to use X-Scissor on the log, Cirrus attacks with Air Cutter which wasn’t blocked at all, causing Reaper to get pushed back a bit, which makes it so that his attack only partially lands on the log. The team isn’t about to give up, Reaper prepares for his next move and goes to Slash the log, only this time Odachi is ready to properly defend. However, Odachi’s defense doesn’t work out too well. Cirrus releases a Heat Wave in Reaper’s direction and Odachi uses her Razor Leaf to try and stop it but the move easily burns the leaves and goes right through them. The attack hits Reaper, his Slash also only landing partially because the flames cause him to recoil away.

Meanwhile, Ore was doing his best to cut away at your side of the log. As he begins to use his Fury Swipes, Gladius the Kabutops releases an Aurora Beam in his direction. Signal is completely prepared this time and readies his Sucker Punch, sending that beam right back to its source, causing Gladius some pain. Ore has no problem getting 4 complete swipes in on the log, fortunately his confusion didn’t stop him from his attack. For his next attack, Ore readies his Shadow Claw and goes to swing for the log. This time, Gladius uses his Icy Wind and since Signal was busy using Heal Bell to fix Ore’s confusion, the wind managed to reach Ore, completely knocking him over before he managed to make any contact with the log.

Despite the lack of the second move making any contact, Ore’s Fury Swipes had still managed to not only get rid of Samuel’s slight lead, it had also managed to give you back the lead you once had since Reaper didn’t manage well on his end this time around. The log is almost finished being cut through, this is still anyone’s match but it seems the next round could potentially be the end. Samuel wastes no time and prepares his Pokemon for what is to come next. “Go all out team! Reaper, continue to cut that log and use Night Slash and Air Slash! Odachi switch to offense and attack their cutter with your Signal Beam and then give it a Dual Chop! Gladius, we’re going to need you to defend Reaper this time around make sure you Take Down anything that tries to get in Reapers way! And also use your Aqua Tail if need be!”


-------------------------

Meetan – It was pretty nice being so close to an Ursaring but you didn’t have time to enjoy it because this was a time when you needed to be serious. Billie gave Greg a look after you had told him to devour his vocal cords, it was almost as if he was contemplating actually doing it. “W-what are you giving me that look for?!” Greg noticed the look and didn’t like it one bit. Ultimately, Billie just went back to remaining alert to his surroundings.

Nina was not ok with being Wrapped up by a Seviper so she used her Extrasensory in an attempt to get the Seviper off of her. The Seviper wasn’t expecting such a strange uncomfortable power to flow through it and managed to loosen his grip for a split second, which was when Nina made her escape. “Come on Seviper, Wrap that Pokemon back up! Then stab it with your Poison Tail!” One of the men yells, clearly the owner of the Seviper. Nina charges in to Zen Headbutt the Seviper but upon contact, although it did hurt the Seviper, the snake still managed to Wrap her up all over again. With her head still sticking out, she releases her Swift in the direction of the truck. The stars managed to find their way around the truck and to the lock, denting it up a bit but not enough to open it up. As soon as the Swift was finished, the Seviper stabbed at Nina with its Poisonous Tail causing her to yelp and the poison began to seep into her making her feel a bit ill. Frustrated, Nina struggled but the Seviper was not going to let go this time but she did manage to make the both of them tumble down into the crater that the Electrode had created earlier. (Nina gains 1 level)

Meanwhile, inside the truck, Axel can’t see a thing. Nomally, he’d be using his psychic abilities to observe his surroundings in such a dark place but for some reason it’s not really working out for him. It’s very quiet inside the truck, Axel knows there are several Pokemon in there but none of them are making a sound. Franklin had become pretty quiet shortly after Axel had found his way inside. However, your shouts came through to Axel loud and clear. He took a moment to think about it, it was so dark that he couldn’t actually see which direction was the back of the truck. Eventually, he comes to the conclusion that he will need to guess and uses his Blow Back in the direction he hopes the door is. At this point, the second man, the one who doesn’t own the Seviper, jumps into the driver’s seat of the truck in an attempt to get away and leave his partner behind. It’s at that moment that Axel unleashes his move, the Blow Back was aimed toward the front of the truck instead of the back, Axel is thrown backwards by the force since he is in an enclosed space causing his body to smash into the doors which busts the lock even further. He also manages to put a dent in the trailer behind the drivers seat with his attack, which shoves the man who had just jumped in there into the steering wheel, causing him to struggle with getting the truck moving. (Axel gains 2 levels)

Although the truck still wasn’t open, the door was now cracked enough to allow some light in. Axel could see that all of the Pokemon were in individual cages and they weren’t looking so good. It was almost as if the cages were sapping their energy. Franklin, who had gone quiet to conserve energy was feeling a bit pumped up again after seeing that they were almost free. Knowing that one more hit would get them out of there, Franklin convinces Axel to free him before opening those doors so that they could go together, so Axel uses his Iron Tail on the lock holding Franklin’s cage shut and it easily comes open. Franklin is free now but exhausted, whatever type of cage that was, it had been sapping all of the energy out of him. With the doors partially open, whatever was preventing Axel’s abilities from working no longer had effect and so he let you in on the situation. The doors only needed one simple hit before they would burst open and Joe’s Mudbray Tank, Duchess, as well as another Pokemon covered in tar were still in cages.

On the far side of the crater Ivan was still helping Joe, he was trying to assist him in standing up but each time he would stand, even while trying to lean on Ivan, he would fall again. It’s clear that Joe must have been very badly injured. Billie is practically breathing down your neck, even though you had put some space between you two he wasn’t about to keep the space there. The helicopter still can’t be seen but with each passing second it is only getting louder and louder.

As Pancham picked itself up from being knocked against the ropes, it charged forward, ready to attack. With little time to think, Stufful had to react quickly and fight back!

Pancham came in fast, unleashing a series of Arm Thrusts on the Stufful. He let out a pained whimper as Pancham’s palms pushed him back four times for super effective damage. The only saving grace was his Fluffy plush fur absorbing some of the contact. Stufful Leered angrily, the defiant act causing Pancham to drop its guard a bit before ramming into it with a Tackle. Pancham grit its teeth and Tackled Stufful right back before Pancham began Working itself Up into a frenzy. Stufful charged at Pancham while flailing his arms wildly, hitting him with a Brutal Swing.

As the two Pokemon paused to catch their breaths, both were aware that a victor would be decided soon. Both were nearing the ends of their rope, and prepared to launch one last desperate attack to overcome the other. Through heavy panted breaths, Pancham glared across the ring at Stufful. There was almost a gleam of excitement in its eyes as it slowly began to see its opponent as less of a victim to bully and more of a rival. Pancham then squared off against Stufful once again, ready to hit the bear with its strongest Karate Chop. What will Stufful do?
At this point, Patches had given up on entering the ring since it had become very clear that Mio wasn’t going to allow it. She sat quietly on the grass next to the ring instead, most likely creating grass stains on her skirt and leggings but she wouldn’t care or notice anyway. It’s not every day that there was a trainer who was more controlled by their Pokemon than the other way around but with how Patches could get, it was necessary. Mio returned to watching the fight, while keeping a close eye on Patches out of her peripheral vision. “Pika pika!” She decided to throw in some of her own cheers along with Kei so that Stufful would know that he had their full support. Kei continued to be proud as he watched his friend, they may both be very worn out but he knew in his heart that Stufful was going to pull through.

Out of breath and a bit exhausted, Stufful began to think up the next step to his strategy. He didn’t have time for breaks, Pancham wasn’t about to give him one and he wasn’t about to give Pancham one either. He wasn’t sure how many more hits he could take, and thought better of using his Bide again, so he would be forced to continue with a similar strategy to the last round, but that was fine since it seemed to work well. Since he knew that any hits that Pancham would land could potentially be the end of him, he knew he needed to use his Baby-Doll Eyes again to soften the blow a bit further. Then he would give Pancham the strongest Brutal Swing he can manage! And if that doesn’t take him down, he’ll just hit him with another Brutal Swing!

"Hang in there, Nina, we've got this!" Attacking Seviper from close range was clearly not the best idea, but her Vulpix's strongest moves against the opponent were mostly physical. Not to mention the snake was pretty damn quick - although Nina could be, too. Their struggle culminated in the two rolling into the crater, the snake still holding its prey tight, and Alice temporarily escaped Billie's hovering to get a better view - although the mind's eye was momentarily hazed by a rush of information. It took a few moments to process it, and Alice felt nauseous, but then she got a grip. Axel was doing his job right as always.

"Billie, I need you to slash the tires of that truck or otherwise damage it. Rip the wheels off, I literally don't care, just make sure not to let that guy escape!" Alice ordered of the bear, "If the truck gets away we lose Tank, Dutchess and everyone else in there!" The trainer explained, hoping that by laying out the urgency of the situation the Ursaring might comply. "Nina! Disable that wrap attack and use hypnosis, then use extrasensory to get loose again!" Hopefully even if the Seviper didn't sleep it would end up flinching all the same.

Now, her commands to Axel. She shouted them out, but hoped that the Pokemon's link was still with her even if he couldn't actually hear her. Demanding a simple 'knock off' to get the doors open, Alice asked her Abra to use moves to bust open the locks on Tank and Dutchess' cages, too. "Get Franklin to break open the other ones if he can! But make sure he doesn't over exert himself!" She added, having gotten a sense for the poor Wartortle's condition. "If he can just wash off the gunk covering the other Pokemon even that would be an improvement!" It couldn't feel good, that was for sure. As for Ivan and Joe, Alice was aware, but she'd have to leave them be for now. When the more immediate problems were dealt with, one of Alice's other Pokemon could help them out.

It was still a bit cold, it was winter after all, but down by the river it was definitely still nice enough to enjoy a picnic. You were not out of place at all with your towering Golurk and other strong Pokemon. All around the river were trainers with their Pokemon, some looking to battle and others just appreciating the great outdoors of the Cloud Garden. The river gets wider as you walk further down the path. The water has gotten deep enough for fishing, and there are several small boats and canoes positioned on the water. Some of the people fishing give you a dirty look. The shadows you and your Pokemon are casting are scaring the fish. You take the hint and hurry along.

You’ve spent a good amount of your day walking and your Pokemon seem ready to take a break. A sign points you to an area labelled ‘Campgrounds’, and Golestandt is happy to put the gear down and start setting things up. Caladbolg helps out, if only to go through the food and pick out his favorites first. The river is obscured by tents and trees but you can still hear the gentle rush of water. It is certainly peaceful, and would be calming, if it wasn’t for the group of people sitting at a campsite not too far from yours. The group of teens is eyeing you and whispering. You also see them pointing and occasionally laughing. Your Pokemon see a bit wary of them, but wait for your call.
After the relatively hectic atmosphere of his previous visit, the peace and quiet of the river was a welcome change for Alex as his group wandered along the banks, trainers dotted here and there in battles or just enjoying the crisp chilly air, while the trainer looked back at his team. Between the fiendish looking Zangoose, the big terrifying dragon hopping around daftly and the even bigger Golurk serving as pack mule and impromptu sunshade, he felt perhaps a bit out of place among the younger trainers with their Sentret and Starly and whatnot.

The river widened as their wandering continued, and as it deepened he had the feeling that perhaps taking something over thirteen feet tall was not the wisest idea, judging by the scowls fishermen were giving him, the shadows over the water definitely intimidating. "Let's head a bit more inland then, guys." A couple of hours passed, and as his legs started to protest, he felt that taking a break would be ideal. Before could search for a spot to rest, Totsuka poked him roughly, making him recoil. The last time the Zangoose laid a finger on him ended tragically, and he was always a bit more wary around her, but the pokemon merely pointed to a sign. "Ah, right. We'll find a spot there and settle down for a break."

The campsite was big enough for them, and on finding a suitable spot the Golurk eased the large satchel down, as Cal quickly dived into it and started hauling out a basket with his claws, the dragon's agenda quite clear as a stomach grumbled. Alex gave a small chuckle as he pulled a checkered cloth out and began to unravel it while Golestandt slowly lowered himself to a sitting position. He didn't eat, and didn't need to, but was appreciative of the respite, while the Zangoose did what she did best: nothing. The gentle rush of water was calming, though the teens at the nearby campsite not so much.

Gazing in their direction, he could see them eyeing him up, whispering and having the odd laugh. Standard teen fare. The automaton didn't react, instead turning head in their direction, while the Zangoose simply ignored them, focusing instead on the basket. There were biscuits in there with her name on them, and she was intent on getting to them. Cal on the other hand waved a claw at them, giving the youths the biggest, cheeriest smile he could, though all three were at least wary of them. "No need to be concerned. They're kids, they're pretty much doing things kids do at that age. Let's relax, get a bite to eat, and ignore them. Hell, if they're up for some battling afterwards, we can afford it."

Signal is completely prepared this time and readies his Sucker Punch, sending that beam right back to its source, causing Gladius some pain. Ore has no problem getting 4 complete swipes in on the log, fortunately his confusion didn’t stop him from his attack. For his next attack, Ore readies his Shadow Claw and goes to swing for the log. This time, Gladius uses his Icy Wind and since Signal was busy using Heal Bell to fix Ore’s confusion, the wind managed to reach Ore, completely knocking him over before he managed to make any contact with the log.

Despite the lack of the second move making any contact, Ore’s Fury Swipes had still managed to not only get rid of Samuel’s slight lead, it had also managed to give you back the lead you once had since Reaper didn’t manage well on his end this time around. The log is almost finished being cut through, this is still anyone’s match but it seems the next round could potentially be the end. Samuel wastes no time and prepares his Pokemon for what is to come next. “Go all out team! Reaper, continue to cut that log and use Night Slash and Air Slash! Odachi switch to offense and attack their cutter with your Signal Beam and then give it a Dual Chop! Gladius, we’re going to need you to defend Reaper this time around make sure you Take Down anything that tries to get in Reapers way! And also use your Aqua Tail if need be!”
On Samuel's side of the log, Cirrus easily managed to land his Air Cutter, while Samuel's Lurantis was busy using Growth, and his Heat Wave went straight through Lurantis' attempt to block it with a Razor Leaf. Both attacks messed up Samuel's Scyther's hits, which was all her side needed.

On Melissa's side, Signal successfully Sucker Punched Samuel's Kabutops, preventing it from using Aurora Beam and letting Ore get four Fury Swipes in. Of course, while Signal was busy using Heal Bell to fix Ore's confusion, Kabutops got an Icy Wind in, knocking Ore over and stopping him from using Shadow Claw.

Samuel skipped straight to giving his Pokémon orders. "Go all out, team! Reaper, continue to cut that log and use Night Slash and Air Slash! Odachi, switch to offense and attack their cutter with your Signal Beam and then give it a Dual Chop! Gladius, we're going to need you to defend Reaper this time around. Make sure you Take Down anything that tries to get in Reaper's way! And also use your Aqua Tail if need be!"

Melissa glanced at him sidelong when there wasn't any additional chatter. Weird. Was he only now taking things seriously or had he not expected things to go this way? Well, either way, she needed to win this trial to get to the next level and the Cloud Shrine, so that's what she would aim for.

"Cirrus, let's keep the pressure up on his side of the log. Aim for the Scyther and use Swift, then Aerial Ace!" She was hoping that having to deal with two difficult-to-block/dodge attacks would make things difficult on the defender and allow at least one attack to hit, though both would be awesome. "Signal, try to disrupt the Signal Beam with Shock Wave, then Ice Beam." Not that Ore would have to worry if she figured Dual Chop's Type correctly. "Ore, one more time: Fury Swipes, then Shadow Claw!"

The boundary of the foothills lies at the Starline Falls, a giant waterfall that cascades down from the incline above.

Starline River: A calm river that flows down from the mountain and passes by the village on its way to the lake. The water is crystal clear in the shallower areas, darker in the deeper center. The river makes a great place for picnics and for those who enjoy fishing. (Please reply in skyblue)
Where most trainers would be taking in the picturesque environs and aura of tranquility at the shoreline of the Starline River, Kijo's harsh brown eyes scan the river for signs of life, looking clearly uncomfortable. Kijo's presence at the Starline River was entirely out of practicality. A water type - particularly one that would learn how to ascend waterfalls and traverse bodies of water - would allow for further exploration of the Cloud Garden, and presumably other areas as well. Of course, one should never be too narrow-minded in one's objectives; after all, with only one Pokemon at her disposal, she was sorely in need of diversity, no matter what form it came in.

The trainer stands, rather awkwardly, on the shoreline - normally oozing with poise and self-confidence, the former Team Rocket member seems somewhat out of her element in such an idyllic atmosphere. Bia, on the other hand, has already bounded into water. After an initial bit of shock and a thorough shiver, she begins enthusiastically swimming around the shallows, enjoying the space to roam and the sensation that the water provides her, however cold it may be. Kijo's ears fill with the sound of joyous squeaks and hearty splashing. A paw extends out of the water, beckoning her trainer to join, which is met with a harsh grunt and a shake of the head. A moment's disappointment flashes across Bia's expression, but the water is so clear - so refreshing and fun to play in - that disappointments are forgotten quickly. Great. Now I have to keep an eye on her, on top of everything else...

Kijo resumes her scan of the river, pausing every few seconds to make sure that Bia was still enjoying herself safely. She hadn't given that little brat permission to go swimming - this disobedience would have to be addressed swiftly - and yet, it was hard to discipline her Pokemon in that moment. Perhaps once they returned home, she would have a stern discussion with the little Stufful about asking permission... but for now, let the little one enjoy the moment. It's not like I was ever one to ask permission, myself, Kijo thinks with the ghost of a smirk playing at the corner of her lips.

Fortunately, you were able to remain levelheaded in this situation because Ringo certainly wasn’t. It was also convenient that this was a situation in which you needed your Pokemon to act fast, and right now your very slow Pokemon was faster than ever. Dudley instantly forgot all about the Aipom and turned his attention toward the fire and began to take care of the flames with his Water Gun. He first aimed his water at the flames that were fast approaching the sleeping Kricketune. No surprise, he manages to stop the flames from reaching the sleeping Pokemon but his water also drenches the Kricketune, waking him up from his slumber. As Dudley turns his focus on other areas covered in fire, the Kricketune leaps up and looks around, completely startled. The Nanab Berries are both gone, it sees fire, and it just had water poured all over it. It was not a fun way to wake up and on top of everything, it’s feeling a bit sluggish. Angry, the Kricketune begins to Furiously Cut away at the air, flailing randomly. It hasn’t hit anything yet but it’s certainly a hazard.

Miror was feeling confident, his speed had increased and this time he knew he was going to be able to take the lead on that troublesome monkey. He runs up and uses a strong Drain Punch on Aipom, right in its face! Aipom recoils, annoyed at his lack of agility in this situation. It’s clear that you and your Pokemon are starting to get to it. It manages to Scratch Miror while he was still close. Then, next thing it knows, Aipom is being pelted by Seed Bombs. It uses its tail to try and shield itself from the attack but it is still causing a decent amount of damage. You can tell that Aipom is starting to get a little nervous now as it seems to be changing its focus away from the battle. (Miror gains 2 levels)

Meanwhile, Dudley is doing his best to put out the fire, but it is a lot of work for one Pokemon. “Right! Sand! You’re like, some kind of genius or something!” Ringo responds to your advice and then turns toward Lady the Herdier. “Lady, put out those flames with your Sand Attack!” Lady hears Ringo and then turns her head slightly sideways in confusion. Ringo wasn’t very experienced with using the family’s Pokemon so she wasn’t well informed on what exactly it was that the Herdier was capable of. Lady at least knew that Ringo was trying to get her to help so she wasn’t about to do nothing and figured she could maybe give Dudley a Helping Hand. On her way over to Dudley, Aipom got in the way. At some point, despite its lowered speed, it had gotten a hold of a stick with a flaming tip. Lady’s attention was drawn to the stick, completely forgetting about her plans to assist. Miror leaps into the air, preparing to Bounce down on his target. Aipom’s attention is still away from the fight, Lady went into a play bow and the Aipom threw the stick in such a way that Lady was able to catch it right out of the air. Aipom, reached out and grabbed onto Lady’s tail and next thing you know the Aipom is being taken away by Lady who is running away with a flaming stick. She was slowed down too but was still much faster than Aipom.

Miror comes crashing down to finish his move but completely misses his target since it was in the process of being carried away. “Why Lady!?! Why do you always do this!?! That stick is on FIRE, you’re going to spread it!!!” Ringo dashes off after the Herdier. Fortunately, the stick hadn’t caught anything else on fire but it was still quite a hazard. Dudley was finishing up with putting out the last of the flames from the tree, he was so fast that fortunately he ultimately managed to get it all under control without anyone’s help. However, the tree was pretty damaged and as soon as the flames were out, the Kricketune had managed to make its way over to it with its Fury Cutter and all it took was one hit to take out the whole tree and it tumbled down right in front of you, dividing you and Miror from Dudley. The Kricketune was exhausted and sat down by the tree. You could still hear Ringo yelling and the Pokemon getting away in the not too far off distance.
Gavin facepalmed- Dudley's Water Gun successfully doused the flames that threatened to incinerate the Kricketune, sure enough. Only problem was, it also successfully doused the Kricketune! And the Bug-type did not appreciate this in the slightest, flailing randomly as it lashed out with Fury Cutter. "Shit," grumbled Gavin.

Things did not improve from there. Ringo may have thought Gavin's idea was brilliant, but the problem with that was that Lady did not seem to actually know Sand Attack. Moreover, as the Herdier seemed intent on helping Dudley out, Aipom showed up to distract her from this goal, and did so by getting her to catch a flaming stick in her mouth. "Oh, what the actual fuck!" exploded Gavin.

The good news here was that Dudley succeeded in putting out the tree, and that Kricketune had collapsed from exhaustion, ceasing its wild attacking. The bad news was that just before collapsing, Kricketune had toppled the highly damaged tree with Fury Cutter, dividing Gavin and Miror from Dudley. "Slooooow?" Dudley called.

"Gah... Dudley, it's up to you!" called Gavin. "Teleport yourself right into the Herdier's path and use Telekinesis, just to hold her in place until the stick is extinguished! Then use- no, you know what? Then use Rain Dance!" Gavin decided. Why hadn't he thought of that earlier? Water Gun might put out the flames, but it could also hit Lady and do some real damage. Rain Dance, on the other hand, wouldn't do damage at all. Might make for some unpleasant weather, but it beat the alternative, Gavin reasoned. Aipom might still pose a problem, of course, but one thing at a time. And speaking of which, Gavin turned to the exhausted Kricketune, approaching the Bug-type. "Look," he said. "I hope you realize by now- me, Miror, Dudley, we're not the bad guys here. I don't know what that Aipom's problem is, but it's been screwing with you, with that Rattata, and with me as well. Probably got something to do with that old man I've been trying to warn you about, it honestly wouldn't surprise me. And if you still don't believe me, then hear this- if I wanted to attack you, I couldn't ask for a better opportunity than right now. And you know what I'm gonna do with this opportunity? I'm gonna help you feel better." And he turned to the Maractus by his side. "Miror, Grassy Terrain." he said.

"Rrrrractus," nodded Miror, preparing to use the move Gavin had ordered. The closest thing the Maractus had to a healing move, Grassy Terrain was sure to help Kricketune to feel relaxed and refreshed.


*Miror grew to level 4!*

*Miror grew to level 5!*

As they headed down into the dark depths of the cave, Jayson, Ajax, and Tomoe began to take in the senses of everything around them. It was when they heard whimpering of a small animal nearby that Tomoe the Wimpod scuttled off to investigate it. With no time like the present to work on his training, Jayson called for Ajax to light their path with a Flash. The Chespin focused hard for a moment, trying to remain calm and positive in order to be of use to his comrades.

The quills on Ajax’s head suddenly began to pulse with a very faint light. The light grew a bit stronger after a couple of moments, causing Jayson and Ajax to smile with excitement, but it was far from prefect. Like a sputtering flashlight that was running low on batteries, visibility was upgraded from ‘nonexistent’ to ‘dark forest during a new moon.’ It wasn’t great, but it was a start.

Using their hands as buffers to catch them from tripping over or crashing into anything, Jayson and Ajax made their way through the cave as they followed the whimpering noise. As it got louder and louder, eventually they came across Tomoe’s shaking backside as she was peering into a small hole underneath a few boulders. Calling Tomoe to move out of the way, Jayson crouched down and pulled Ajax close to get a closer look. Before he could see anything else, Jayson spotted a few dark streaks across the cavern floor- likely dried blood. Staring into the hole, Jayson was met by a pair of blue eyes staring back at him. Taking a moment to adjust his eyes, the blue eyes belonged to a small brown canine with a fluffy white tail and dark diamond-shaped rocks around its neck. The dog let out a soft, defensive growl at it tried to protect its space from being invaded. There was something not right about the positioning of its leg, however. They had come down a pretty significant slope of steps since they entered the cave, and it was highly possible that this dog had fallen down and broke its leg in the process. It would be best to try and get it some medical attention back outside, but trying to coax an injured animal that wanted to be left alone wasn’t going to be an easy task.



Patches:
The fight between Stufful and Pancham was coming down to the wire as Patches, Mio, and Kei eagerly watched on in support of the brave little teddy bear. Pancham was ready to end the match with an intimidating Karate Chop, so Stufful had to think fast to counter it. Once he thought of a plan, Stufful defiantly stared down his opponent and prepared to fight.

As Pancham charged in with its arm raised, Stufful quickly flashed his Baby-Doll Eyes at the unsuspecting attacker, temporarily catching him off guard. Pancham’s hand came down, the Karate Chop hitting Stufful in the head, but much of the contact was absorbed by his Fluffy plush fur. Stufful then began to retaliate by flailing his arms around wildly, hitting Pancham with a Brutal Swing who grimaced as it was knocked back. “Paaaaan!!!” Pancham called out as it lunged back into the fray and unleased a flurry of Comet Punches. “Fuuuullll!” Stufful answered as he continued to flail, hitting Pancham back with another Brutal Swing.

The two Pokemon were knocked back by the impact of each other’s attacks and slowly attempted to get to their feet. They both wobbled for a minute before Pancham fell back onto the floor, unable to continue. Stufful had finally done it; he stared his bully in the eye and overcame it! Kei, Mio, and Patches jumped for joy as they were finally allowed into the ring to congratulate their friend.

“Ding! Ding!” the bell chimed and they looked over to see that Timburr was conscious again and had rung the bell with his plank. “Burr,” he spoke, giving a knowing nod to show that he acknowledged Stufful as the winner. The Mankeys parted the ropes to allow for everyone to climb out of the ring. With the fighting tournament now over, it was time to go. Patches and her Pokemon were unsure of what would happen to Stufful, and considered the possibility that they would soon be parting ways. However, Stufful had other plans as he followed Patches and firmly stood before her. From the look of it, Stufful had made up his mind that he wanted to join Patches’ team and continue growing with his newfound friends. Congratulations, you are now able to add a lv.16 male Stufful with the Fluffy ability to your team if you please!

Overjoyed and now ready to go, Patches and her Pokemon were stopped once again as a “Cham!” called out to them. Stufful turned around to see none other than Pancham standing behind him with a serious look on his face. Pancham reached out and handed Stufful a Black Belt as well as a small disc. He then shook Stufful’s paw and stated that Stufful better use those because the next time they met he would need them. With Patches and her Pokemon now free to roam wherever they pleased, they knew that Stufful had a new rival waiting for him.


Patches has gained the following items:
1x Black Belt
1x TM Bulk Up

Thanks for the fun adventure, you are now free to go elsewhere on the lower level of the Cloud Garden! Stufful is now yours to keep if you wish to do so!

The others didn’t even have time to process the win before Patches had already found her way inside of the ring. “Ahhhhh you did it! I’m so happy!” She runs right up to Stufful and lifts him up into the air so hard that she ends up throwing him into the air instead. “Oh, whoops!” Patches realizes the situation wasn’t looking good but Kei charged right in and broke Stufful’s fall. “Sorry about that… Sometimes I don’t know my own strength!” Patches chuckles nervously and Mio just sighs and runs over to Stufful who was climbing off of Kei to make sure they were both alright. Stufful was still smiling though, despite the surprise “attack” from Patches, he knew she meant well and Kei was doing fine too, since he was pretty used to it at this point.

Then the bell began to ring and everyone’s attention was now on Timburr who was once again conscious. “Aww… I wanted to ring the bell…” Patches was a little disappointed but she was still proud as she watched everyone acknowledge Stufful’s strength and Kei even gave Stufful a big hug as a sign of friendship. Following her Pokemon’s lead, Patches exited the ring once the Mankey’s parted the ropes and began to feel a bit sad once she realized this was the end. “I’ll never forget any of you! I’m so happy I got to meet you all and I hope we get too see eachother again someday!” Then she took a moment to kneel down so that she would be on Stufful’s level. “Especially you. I’m so happy Kei was able to make such an adorable friend.” Beside Patches, Kei’s eyes were beginning to tear up. He knew that there was a chance they may never see each other again and it broke his heart to think about.

Fortunately, Stufful had other plans. “Stuff stuff!” Stufful pleaded with Patches. He knew he wanted to go wherever his new friends were going, now he just hoped that they would accept him. “Oh! Of course! I’m glad that you asked!” She rummaged around in her bag for what felt like an eternity until finally she came up empty handed. “Um… I’m so so sorry… I think I may have used the last of my confetti earlier so I don’t have any to give you.” Mio face palmed. Stufful, who wasn’t quite used to Patches yet was confused. But Kei was already digging through her bag himself with a big smile and pulled out an empty pokeball just for Stufful. “Oh good thinking Kei! If we bring him with us then we can get him some confetti later!” Patches took the ball from Kei’s hands and held it out to Stufful with the biggest smile she could manage. “What do you say? Would you like to join us?” Stufful jumps up and down with enthusiasm and then bumps the button on the ball himself and gets pulled inside. The ball instantly clicks and Stufful is now an official member of the team.

Patches immediately presses the button in order to release Stufful. “You should stay out with us for a little longer so we can all get to know each other!” Stufful nods and together with Patches and the others, begins to walk away but is soon stopped by Pancham. After receiving a few rewards and a few exchanged words Stufful runs to catch up with Patches and they set off once again. “Hmm…” As they walk through the plains Patches glances at both Kei and Stufful and can see that they are slightly out of breath. “You two did wonderfully! I think we need to get you both healed up before we explore anymore though.” Both Kei and Stufful nod at the same time and their new destination was now finding a place to heal before figuring out where to go. “Oh and Stufful, since you’re one of us now, you’re going to need a name, so from now on I’m going to call you Soji!”


Patches captured a lv. 16 male Stufful with ability Fluffy!

Claiming

x1 Black Belt

It would be best to try and get it some medical attention back outside, but trying to coax an injured animal that wanted to be left alone wasn’t going to be an easy task.

Ajax tried his best to master the move, but came up a little short, only managing to slightly illuminate their surroundings. Something was better than nothing though, they could at least see something now, allowing them to surely but surely pursue Tomoe and the mysterious whimpering. Carefully making their way towards the sound, Jayson and Ajax eventually find the curious Wimpod, her tail rattling as she peers into a hole in the wall, partially concealed by some boulders. Inside the hole was the source of the whimpering, a small canine that Jayson quickly identified as a Rockruff. The Rock type seemed in rather bad shape, the trail of dried blood and the odd positioning of its leg seemed to suggest that it had broken or badly hurt its leg. Such an injury could not be left untreated, if left unattended, the wound could get infected. Even if it avoided infection, Jayson knew the Rockruff would likely starve, or be picked off by a predator looking for an easy feed. The pup seemed rather defensive, rightfully so considering it was hurt. It would likely be difficult to gain its trust, but Jayson knew he had to at least try.

Laying down on his stomach in order to be at the dog's height, Jayson dug through his bag. First he pulled out a Sitrus Berry, he figured that the nutritious fruit would help alleviate some of the Rock type's pain and hopefully gain him some trust. He then pulled out his Pink Water bottle, that he always kept filled with fresh water. Lastly he pulled out a Heatmor Plushie, figuring that if the Rockruff lashed out, it would be better for him to bite into the soft plushie instead of Jayson's soft flesh. "Hey there little one", Jayson said with a smile, "looks like you've hurt yourself pretty bad there." Jayson reached out and placed the berry in front of the Rockruff. "This berry will make you feel a little better, here is some water as well, you're probably thirsty as well." Jayson unscrewed the lid on the water bottle and poured a little of it into a small groove in the floor. Jayson waited for the Rockruff to finish the berry and have a drink. "Why don't you come out here so we can have a better look at that leg?" Jayson kept hold of the plushie, ready to intercept if the Rockruff lashed out.

"Ajax keep concentrating on your flash, see if you can make it a bit brighter so I can get a better look at this leg." The Chespin gave a nod as he began to focus more, intent on assisting his trainer. Tomoe watched on with concern, aware that the Rockruff was in a bad state.

Raves: You settle in with your Pokemon, deciding to take in the peace and beauty of your surroundings rather than concern yourself with the group of youths nearby. Your Garchomp gives them an exaggerated smile and wave, to which you hear them laugh and scoff. After they see that you and your Pokemon are not going to pay any attention to them, they lose interest quickly. One of the girls starts to climb a nearby tree and the others cheer her on and tease her about falling.

You are able to block the noise out, especially with the sound of the river rushing by. Totsuka rifles through the basket of goodies and pulls out her share of biscuits. Caladbolg dives to the basket next and after some shuffling of the contents, he cries out in shock and anger. He pulls out up a biscuit that has clearly been torn in half. The Shadow Zangoose is immediately accused, but she shows him that she really has only taken two, whole biscuits. You take a look yourself and try to deduce what could have happened to the other half of the biscuit. There aren’t any Pokemon or people nearby, and you know that your Pokemon would have noticed if some kind of Flying type had come down and snatched it. The only thing that seems out of place is one of the bushes nearby. If you look closely you can tell it has been disturbed, there are several leaves on the ground and a small hole where something must have gone through. On top of that, you hear a loud outburst of laughter from the teens again, and one of them has just returned something into a Pokeball.


-----------------
Stitches:

Being in nature was certainly refreshing. The river just seemed to carry all of your stress and worry away. There were plenty of things to draw your attention. The family playing nearby, a pair of trainers fishing on the other bank of the river, and if you looked into the water there were definitely shadows of Pokemon swimming around. You can’t take your eyes off the water though, there is just something about it that pulls you to it. Solemn seemed at peace as well. The Water-type was delighted to be so close to the fresh, clear water. Your Squirtle slides into the water, swimming circles around a large rock before returning to you and slowly floating by on his back. There was always the option to join in on his fun, but the water did look pretty cold. Solemn seems content to entertain himself with blowing bubbles in the water and diving down to find interesting rocks.

The water is beginning to lull you into full relaxation when something catches your attention with a plop! A round, blue object goes floating by and stops as it gets caught in between two rocks. It is about the size of a child’s ball, but you did not notice if the kids nearby even had toys with them. Solemn pops up from underwater with a rock in hand to show you, but notices that your attention is elsewhere. He looks at the object you point out, and he seems interested but wary. Your Pokemon looks to you, wondering if the two of you should try to check it out.
