Grassyglide-

As they say, defense is the best offense. Wisewoods begins by using a Confuse Ray on the Dusknoir, causing the reaper to become enraged. In its confusion, it begins to attack at random, eventually ending up hitting itself. This was a good thing because it allows Wisewood to set up a Double Team around the Dusknoir.

Meanwhile, Silver continues with support by creating a Safeguard around himself and Wisewoods. No pesky status conditions! After all, it was the bane of stall. The butterfly then continues by giving the Dusknoir a Draining Kiss. While the texture felt weird to the bug-type, it manages to heal up a good amount of the damage that it took that round.

With that all said and done, the Dusknoir begins to attack once more. It seems the vengeful spirit was waiting for you to end your setup. If it couldn't hit you then, then it'll certainly try now. Through its Confusion, it summons a portal above your Pokemon. Jagged rocks then begin to rain from the sky, the Rock Slide slamming into both Wisewoods and Silver for a lot of damage. This ghost was out for blood, and even with it taking more Toxic poison it doesn't look like it's giving up.

What do you do?


Dragons-

The Battle Tower. A place of excitement and thrills! Filled with hopeful trainers hoping to fight the Tower Tycoon, they had to fight through ten grueling floors of the tower. There were rumors about the tycoon, with them having a partner created by the Aether Foundation. Though, it was only a rumor, since most trainers barely made it to the top. Those who did, however, tend to keep the Tycoon's identity a secret.

Scanning the room, you see a variety of trainers with all kinds of Pokemon. Most of them seem to be doing warm-ups for the challenge ahead. After all, if they aren't prepared mentally and physically, they won't make it far. Though, despite the myriad amount of trainers, most of them seemed to ignore you. Everyone here saw each other as a potential rival, in terms of who can make it the farthest.

With most of the crowd ignoring you, you end up making your way up to the desk. There, you see a receptionist smiling at you. She had light, blonde hair and was wearing a black business suit.

"Hello sir, welcome to Fizzytopia's Battle Tower! If you're here for a challenge today, you can register with me. Please tell me your name, a team of six Pokemon, and whether you would like to partake in singles or doubles," she tells you with a cheerful grin.

How do you respond?

Ouch.

That was probably an underreaction to Wisewoods and Silver getting hit with the rocks. Yet, the two were still in this fight. Speaking of which, it was time to go on the offensive. Argyle's team had done the defensive preparations they could've, now all they could do was hope to outlast the ghost towering before them.

"Wisewoods, let's sucker punch the reaper then try to heal some health up with a giga drain," Argyle said, "Silver, you hit him with a Hurricane and then protect yourself from his attack."

That would not be enough to take down the behemoth but it would hopefully make a dent. With the poison working slowly, perhaps victory was not so inconceivable after all. Then again, did Argyle really have the option to fail? Not for Charlotte's sake. Not for the souls of the graveyard's sake. So, whatever it took he and his Pokemon would fight with all they had.

Grassyglide-

You hoped, that with orders you had given your team, would at least make another dent into the Dusknoir. There was a lot more at stake here than just a simple battle. A battle for Charlotte, the girl whose soul got twisted and warped by her father's actions. The drowned spirits in the graveyard, forever wandering a watery grave. All to stave off a deranged man, whose hatred warped him into a monstrosity.

And so, your team fought. Wisewoods, immediately anticipating an attack from the large ghost, feints a punch. He then slams his talon, filled with dark energy, into the bulky monster. The Sucker Punch was effective, as you see the Dusknoir act a little surprised from the attack. So much so, that the Dusknoir ends up hitting itself again in confusion with its own attack.

This sets up the perfect opportunity for Silver. The Vivillon begins to whip up galeforce winds with its wings. It manages to pull in loose souls flying around the area, them wailing out in pain from the corruption within. It then beats out the Hurricane, ensnaring the Dusknoir with powerful winds.

And with the snare set, Wisewoods begins to drain the foe's life force. At a giga amount of power, the drain siphons out a ton of it, dealing great damage. You begin to see your owl become more revitalized, his wounds healing up and cloak glimmering. Yet, he looks shocked once the Hurricane ends.

You see it as well, seeing the Dusknoir having disappeared entirely. Was it also using Phantom Force, like the Trevenant beforehand? Seems like these ghosts were resorting to the same tactics. Well, at least you knew how to deal with it this time.

What do you do?

What do you do?

A Sucker Punch.

An enraged Dusknoir hitting itself in confusion.

A powerful Hurricane.

Some life drain via a Giga Drain.

Things were going according to plan! Was the light at the end of the tunnel becoming visible? Could Argyle finally start to ease up? He just had to wait for the dust to settle from the Hurricane. So, wait he did. Of course it wasn't a long wait. It was actually on the scale of milliseconds. Anyway, once the dust settled, the same expression of shock appeared on Silver, Wisewoods and Argyle: the Dusknoir had vanished.

This felt eerily familiar. It was only minutes earlier when the Trevenant had pulled off a similar trick. The first time, the entire team was taken by fearful surprise, but now Argyle was more comfortable with this situation.

"Wisewoods, Silver, the Dusknoir can appear anywhere and strike so be extra on guard. To help, Wisewoods, let's create a Double Team. It'll help confound him when he appears. Once he appears get ready to fire off a Leaf Blade. And Silver use this opportunity to heal up using Roost. Being stagnant might draw the Dusknoir onto you if Wisewoods Double Team fails to confuse it enough, so be ready to anticipate an attack. Then fire off an Icy Wind."

Argyle hoped that this round wound go just as well as the previous one...

Dracen stood slack-jawed in awe at the entrance of the Battle Tower.

"Wow..." he breathed softly. It was huge, and filled to the brim with powerful Trainers! Everywhere he looked, a strong team of Pokemon or a mysterious-looking Trainer was gathering strength for the battles ahead. Unconcerned with being ignored, he stared brazenly around the room as he walked slowly up to the front desk. He was so busy gazing around at everything around him that it took him a moment to realize the receptionist was speaking to him. He jumped and turned to face her with an apologetic smile.

"Sorry, sorry! This place is just so cool... My name is Dracen, the Dragon Master! I'm here to take part in Doubles battles, and my Pokemon are-" He paused, thinking. He knew a few of the ones he wanted to bring, but he hadn't decided on the last two. He unclipped a homemade Pokeball, two regular Pokeballs, and a Cherish Ball from his belt, then after a moment of indecision, grabbed another Pokeball and a Team Rocket Ball. He placed these on the desk one by one, declaring each in turn:
"My starter, Gible!"
"My Sizzlipede, Myris!"
"My Axew, Asta!"
"My Dreepy, Mimsy!"
"My Krabby, Saatus!"
"My Honedge!"

He thought guiltily of the Pokemon he was leaving out. You'll have your chances, guys, don't worry. Odo, Trouble, Goop Dogg, Druddigon... He patted one of the Pokeballs left on his belt. Cheer on our team, alright? Give 'em all your energy!

Knowing full well what this ghost's trick was, you command your owl and butterfly to prepare for it. The Alolan Pokemon further raises its evasiveness as even more shady bird clones appear. While this is happening, Silver touches down onto the ground, roosting on the floor for some much-needed rest and rejuvenation. While these two heal up, you keep a watchful eye out. It could reappear and strike at any time, and you were prepared.

Well... Mostly. An ear-piercing shriek echoes through the room as you see a pink body flung into the center of the room. Horrified, you turn your head to see the Dusknoir floating where Charlotte once was. You then turned back to the Frillish, who looked limp on the floor. Did... Did he just... Did he really just...? That monster.

Yet, this was no time to sit in silence. No, if that man really just did that. He needed to pay. To both avenge Charlotte, but all of the other spirits here that were suffering due to that man's actions. Wisewood blinked before your eyes, his leaf blade cutting through the overgrown spirit. It was then followed by Silver's cold winds, the icy chill slowing down the towering behemoth.

And then it moved and examined the room. Its eye was horrifying, a piercing, unnerving gaze that was examining the entire room. It was confused no more, and in its clarity, it was ready to consume all. Its first target was already in sight, as you helpless watched as it floated past your Pokemon. Instead, it picked up the Frillish from the middle of the room, stared you directly in the eye with a Mean Look, and shoved it into the gaping maw within its stomach. And then it closed.

How do you respond?


Dragons-

"Thank you!" The receptionist responded back to you, seeming a little confused by your squad choice for your self-proclaimed title.

"Alright, right this way please," she stated, opening a little latch next to her as you went in. She sequestered the rest of the pokemon on you, to prevent any sort of cheating mid-match. You were told they would be returned to you once your run was over.

The woman then opens a door from behind her, and you are told to be let in. Another person was waiting for you and led you through the hallway. The place was so futuristic, and bright, that all you could see was the shining lights. There was no conversation made here, and the silence only added to this creeping sense of trepidation.

The figure then stopped, and let you into another room. There, a trainer was already waiting. A kid who looked like a standard fair Hoenn youngster, eyes filled with determination.

"Rules are simple! This is the doubles arena. You can select four out of your six chosen Pokemon. All Pokemon will be classified as Level 50 for this battle. Once you have selected your team, please give the two you have not selected to me," you hear the referee speak up, standing next to the battlefield.

The kid made his way to the ref and dropped off two Pokeballs. He then returned to his side of the field, ready for a fight.

"Game on!"

What do you do?

As you walk up the stairs from the dark underground subway, give your eyes a minute to adjust to the bright pulsating lights of Neon East. This futuristic district looks like something from a page of cyberpunk fiction, blocks covered in flashing billboards and holographic signage that blanket your field of vision; it’s said on a clear night the glow of its colorful multi-storey shops and arcades are visible all the way from the high-rise balconies of downtown! With unparalleled nightlife and entertainment, Neon East is a thrilling location to visit, as well as an interesting and vibrant place to live for those of means.

Sparkling Strip: You’ve heard New Fizz is the city that never sleeps, now meet the venues that are keeping residents up. If you’re looking for a night on the town Sparkling Strip is the place to be, from glitzy rooftop bars with swimming pools to underground raves which go on until sunrise, there’s a scene for every style. Pokemon are usually only allowed out in VIP areas, so you’ll need to rub shoulders with the right crowd if you want access to this privilege.​
Spoiler: show


It felt like an age since Alice had set foot into New Fizz City. The last time she had really spent time in it, it had merely been to jump into a time vortex to an age long past – and then fight God itself, actually. In fact, the grown idol had practically avoided the place except for when was necessary, hiding out in her Cloud Garden base or taking work elsewhere when she was interested in it or called on. Now, though, she was back – and she'd definitely missed it.

Stylish black lace-up boots thudded heavily on every step out of the subway, lithe fingers curling near her forehead as she found a spot out of the way to admire the new scenery. Most of her time in Fizzytopia had been spent taking on grand enemies or severe missions off the beaten paths or at the behest of gym leaders and governments. She'd never visited the famed Sparkling Strip of Neon East before and it certainly didn't disappoint. It was as glitzy and glamorous as all of the photographs and articles made it sound. Many establishments had bouncers and queues well out of the door. There were plenty of attractive people handing out flyers but the legendaries knew that these places probably didn't need them.

“Miiiimeeee.” The shiny breathed admiringly, youthful eyes absorbing all of the images and energy that she could. It was true that Pokemon weren't usually allowed out of their balls in these places but since day one in the world of monsters, Alice had tried not to go anywhere alone. Her perch was a bit more uncomfortable than usual given her human's attire: the black jacket worn over the halter-neck was soft, but the bustier top mostly consisted of glittering gemstones all pressed together and the texture wasn't exactly pleasant. Between the choice of top and the pleated leather mini-skirt, one would be forgiven for wondering if she might freeze to death. The warmer months were long gone now.

“I know, right?” Alice dropped her other hand, hoisting her black bag better over one shoulder. She hadn't come with a plan in mind beyond maybe wandering over towards the Lab, just to see if it was open and to get a sense of its location for later. Right now, though, she fancied some good grub and entertainment – and if she could not find it, as an idol and renowned heroine of the world, she'd just make it. “Shall we go and see what's up, then?”

Her sparkling companion chimed her agreement and with that, the duo set off down the street to soak up the sights and see what trouble awaited them. After all, when it came to Fizzytopia, they rarely found anything wholesomely good.

Wisewoods, Silver and Argyle braced themselves for the Dusknoir's impending strike. An eerie silence surrounded them. They waited.

And waited.

What was taking the reaper so...

eeeeeeek

The shriek broke the silence, but it had not come from Wisewoods or Silver. So, who...

Then, they saw the Frillish' body flying across the room. The Dusknoir stood where Charlotte was once was.

"Damn it!" Argyle exclaimed. They were too focused on the battle that they had completely forgotten about Charlotte. Now Charlotte was suffering even more because of that. As if Argyle needed another reason to put a stop to the Dusknoir... However, having a reason and actually getting results were two different things. Wisewoods, Silver, Argyle were all driven to take care of the ghost; however, the reaper was a powerful foe who had yet to succumb despite the confusion, poison and other attacks Argyle's Pokemon had thrown at it.

What's more it seemed to have shaken off the confusion and in its newfound clairty picked up the Frillish and shove it into its maw.

Argyle watched motionless as that unfolded, cursing at himself internally for his inaction. Now what could he do? Was it too late for the Frillish? Would battling the Dusknoir just end up harming the Pokemon inside its maw? Did he have another choice? It didn't look like it... The more the Dusknoir left unchecked, the more it would hurt other spirits in the area. He had to be stopped. Argyle was furious. It was time to let the ghost feel nature's wrath.

"Wisewoods, whip up a Hurricane, Silver pelt it with a Blizzard," Argyle said.

grassyglide-

Feeling yourself well up in anger once more, you order your pokemon once more. You have the owl create hurricane force winds to tear through the Dusknoir. Silver then follows up, his ice-tipped wings pelting it with a Blizzard. This does not please the ghost in the slightest, but it seems like it no longer has interest in what you were planning.

It glares at you, and takes the Frillish within its body out. The ghost jellyfish... was not doing well to say the least. With its singular eye, the cyclops wraith tied its destinity to Charlotte's. And before you could even process the ramifications of the Destiny Bond, you heard a small gleam before the entire room was enveloped in white light.

And then came the BOOM, and the entire mausoleum began to shake. The portal to the spirit realm was ripped open, and was beginning to consume the building. The Dusknoir was no more, having exploded itself to serve as the catalyst to bring this hell onto the mortal plain.

The Frillish, no, Charlotte's body laid limp on the ground. The pink jellyfish look deflated, and was knocked out. Can't kill what's already dead. Next to her was the singed corpse of her father, taking the full ramifications of offering his soul as sacrifice to destroy his so called "bastard" child. Your Pokemon were not doing much better, both of them only barely holding on due to surviving the Dusknoir's Explosion.

With the entire building about to come down, and both the girl you worked so hard to save and your Pokemon were in extremely bad conditions. You only had one choice here, escape. But how? You needed to think fast... Before you were dragged to hell yourself.

What do you do?

Once you have selected your team, please give the two you have not selected to me," you hear the referee speak up, standing next to the battlefield.

The kid made his way to the ref and dropped off two Pokeballs. He then returned to his side of the field, ready for a fight.

"Game on!"

What do you do?
Dracen ignored his pounding heart as he stepped into the arena. He took a deep breath, listening to the referee explain the rules with his eyes closed. He shook himself, trying to calm his nerves.

This is the moment you've been waiting for. You're not scared, you can't be. Look forward, grit your teeth and do the thing.

His eyes snapped open, and he took in his opponent for the first time. Just a kid, dressed in Hoenn clothes, looking eager for the coming battle. He let the kid choose his Pokemon first, then strolled over to the referee. No complicated choices here - he knew who he wanted in this first fight.

"Sorry you guys, but I need all dragons on deck for this one." he said quietly as he handed over a Pokeball and Team Rocket Ball. The Team Rocket Ball rocked gently as he did so, the Krabby inside violently protesting in a language Dracen could neither hear nor understand. Dracen chuckled at this. "Calm down, you'll get your chance. I promise I'll bring you out for the next one, alright?" he soothed. There was another soft shake from the Team Rocket Ball, but it settled. The Pokeball beside it gave no signs of life, the Honedge inside patiently sitting perfectly still.

Turning back to the arena, Dracen hefted two of his remaining Pokeballs with a confident smirk. "Hey," He called to the opposing Trainer, tossing one Pokeball in the air. "Bring everything you've got, yeah? I want a good match!" and with that, he caught the Pokeball and sent it spinning out, twirling on one heel to throw the other out as well.

"giiiiii-BLEEE!"

"SIZZZZ-lipeeede!"

Gible and Myris gave twin battle cries as they hit the field, eyes shining and hearts ablaze. Myris glowed like a campfire, pure white smoke pouring off his moustache-like antennae. Gible lacked his usual childlike grin, and was fully battle-ready - his claws were curled menacingly, and his fearsome expression showed all his teeth (save of course the missing one). Dracen folded his arms and entered the familiar battle stance, setting his face with a determined half-smile. "Alright you two, let's jump into it! Gible, Hone Claws! Myris, Coil!" he commanded, and was answered by flashes of silver and purple - Swooping lines of energy surrounded the Pokemon as Myris circled into himself and concentrated his energy, and Gible ground his claws against each other to sharpen them. Behind them, Dracen glanced back at his opponent and called over, "Oh, I'm Dracen, by the way! What's your name?"

Dragons-

Choosing your Pokemon, you send out your GIble and Sizzlipede. A well balanced compostion, able to cover some of the flaws of the other. Though, there were still clear weaknesses to this team composition. And, well, with the Youngster's selected Pokemon you soon realized them.

"Name's Gavin," the trainer responded with a cheeky smile as his pre-selected team was sent out.

You see a small, raccoon-like Pokemon with zizagged fur and alternating brown and white stripes. A common Pokemon in the Hoenn region, the Zigzagoon looked hyperactive and more than ready for battle. It's partner was a small bird, more than ready for a fight. Another common Pokemon of Hoenn, it was a Taillow. Certainly a powerful team against your chosen Pokemon, and one that would give you trouble.

Your Pokemon begin boosting up, your Gible honing its claws for both an attack and accuracy boost. Meanwhile, your Sizzilpede coils up, increasing its attack, defense, and accuracy. With your moves most likely going to hit, as well as hit hard, this should help give you an edge. Yet, your team were sitting ducks this round.

"Okay, Zigzagoon, Growl at the both of them! Taillow, I want you to send an Air Slash towards the Sizzlipede!" Gavin orders, and his Pokemon comply.

The Zigzagoon barks at both of your Pokemon, its deep Growl undoing the attack boosts of your Pokemon. Well, it was to be expected for any trainer who had dealt with early Hoenn. Its partner then follows up with an Air Slash, rapid blades of air being sent towards the Sizzlipede. The super effective hit was more than enough to send it reeling, ignoring its deense boost for a large amount of damage.

You then see the Taillow suddenly become poisoned, its Toxic Orb doing some nasty work. Yet, it was more than bearing the pain. Meanwhile, Zigzagoon continued to look more than raring for a fight.

What do you do?

"Name's Gavin," the trainer responded with a cheeky smile as his pre-selected team was sent out.

You see a small, raccoon-like Pokemon with zizagged fur and alternating brown and white stripes. A common Pokemon in the Hoenn region, the Zigzagoon looked hyperactive and more than ready for battle. It's partner was a small bird, more than ready for a fight. Another common Pokemon of Hoenn, it was a Taillow. Certainly a powerful team against your chosen Pokemon, and one that would give you trouble.

Dracen narrowed his eyes at the opposing team. Alone, a Zigzagoon and Taillow were no threat. Trained well and fighting together, though, they could be quite dangerous indeed - as was immediately demonstrated when Sizzlipede was sent skidding across the battlefield by a wicked Air Slash, and Gible's Attack boost was undone by a nicely-timed Growl. Luckily, Sizzlipede could hold onto his buffs with his White Smoke Ability, but things were looking dicey right off the bat.

Need to get rid of the Taillow fast, Dracen thought. The Zigzagoon looks like more of a support Pokemon than a powerhouse. Leaving it stranded will put us at the advantage. His reverie was broken, however, when the Taillow flinched at something without taking a hit - looking closer, Dracen could see a Toxic Orb in one of its talons. What the... Oh crap- that thing must have Guts! Dracen realized. That bird definitely needed to be off the battlefield as soon as possible, if his guess was correct. Any strong Flying move from a Guts-powered Taillow would tear right through poor Myris, especially when he was already hurt. He needed to go on the offense immediately, and with Gible's accuracy boosts, it wasn't a difficult call to make.

"Gible! Use Stone Edge on that Taillow!" He shouted, throwing out an arm to punctuate the order. Gible responded with an affirmative "Giiiii!", which meant Dracen could shift his focus to Myris. Though the Air Slash had hit hard, Myris looked more ready than ever to hit back - in fact, he almost seemed to have been powered up by the attack. Dracen didn't have to look closely to see that Myris's ringlike markings were glowing brighter than he'd ever seen them, miniature suns lighting up the room with flaming fury. It was eye-watering just to look at him this long, but Dracen still needed to give him a command. "Oi, Myris!" He called, getting the Sizzlipede's attention. "Turn the light show down a bit, couldja? I'm tryin' to battle here, pal!"

The only answer was a defiant, crackling hiss, like a charred log falling into a growing bonfire. Smoke rose from everywhere on the Bug Pokemon, waves of shimmering white and grey drifting up and around the arena like a slow-motion tornado. Dracen rolled his eyes and gave the pillar of flaming rage a stern stare.

"Righteous vengeance or not, ya gotta keep your wits about ya. You're in luck on the violence bit, though - Show that bird who's boss with your fiercest Flame Wheel!"

As Myris reared back in preparation, the glow around him intensified, and Dracen caught a glimpse of something strange in its center. For the briefest moment, as the flame swelled, there was a flash of color that was nowhere near its usual orange.

Wh... Blue fire? But how is that possible?

Something was horribly wrong as you took turn after turn with Fomantis and Krabby, the base was eerily empty and devoid of signs of human life. Krabby was leading you along throughout the underwater base, How it was doing this? You couldn't quite say because it seemed that it had either been here before or somehow was able to smell? Sense? The other undoubtedly trapped Pokémon.

You could hear the other Pokémon chasing Akuma as there were more, increasingly annoyed noises from the thing chasing Akuma, and you swore you could have heard Akuma laughing at the other ghost's displeasure and annoyance. Good. Akuma was doing his job as far as you could tell. The scope that you had been handed what felt like long ago started to overlay upon your face showing you a holographic map and starting to document and record Pokémon somehow? Krelia must have made this thing to see through walls and or other debris up to a certain amount of feet because when you turned you could see Akuma racing about the hallways with the other ghost pokemon on his tail so to speak.

When you turned back forward in the direction Krabby was leading you, you were able to pick out a number of other Pokémon's shapes and the scope analyzed each one and seemed to checkmark them... Interestingly enough it also seemed to show humans too, as your own body came up on the screen when you waved your hand in front of the sensor. Good information to know apparently.


Actually, that was really excellent information to know as that could help you find Krelia and also locate poacher members who could catch you and lock you away, theoretically.


Speaking of the devil, you could make out some figure messing around with what looked to be rope tying their arms around their back. This had to be Krelia as you could think of no other person who could be trapped down here trying to escape... Speaking of escape, you had no real confirmed safe way to get back to the Aquamole and you hardly knew if Krelia would fit within it. On top of that, it was too far down here under the surface for her to safely swim, suit or not. Coupled with the fact that unless you captured and detained the Poachers, you would undoubtedly have them chasing you with probably better-equipped vehicles and for sure better water Pokémon as they were able to capture a bunch of Pokémon that had to have put up a fight above or below the water.


You might have to unleash the Pokémon that is withinside the Pokéball Quincy gave you. Perhaps Krelia could make better use of the situation.

These halls were unbearably dull and lifeless, aside from the two Pokémon that Elijah was following, but the nerd-goggles were proving to be really nifty, cataloging Pokémon that he was sure that he was going to forget by the time that all this was over, displaying the locations of everyone nearby, and prompting him with a... map of the base?

There were a million strange things that had happened over the course of the day, but this was the most eyebrow-raising out of all of them. A map of a hidden base that was completely unknown to anyone outside of this poaching gang prior to tonight? Something was definitely up here. Elijah wasn't really in the mood to start ratting out any moles on his team, but he'd do it if he had to. He didn't play all those games of Amoongus for nothing. In fact, he'd been feeling really suspicious ever since he woke up earlier.

Anyway, for all the feet of desolate hallway that he covered, Elijah saw a couple of things that stood out to him. One, Akuma had somehow amassed a crowd of fans who just so happened to be absolutely spiritual in their devotion to the poor Gengar. Either that or they were having one hell of a fight. Two, he happened to stumble on a figure that looked pretty well bound—that meant "prisoner" in bad-guy code, and he could only think of one person that could fill that role right about now.

'Sup, Krelia.

Elijah didn't actually say that, of course. There was bound to be someone around that corner, which meant that he needed a game plan. Was he going to ambush whoever was in there and somehow make it out unscathed? Wait for an opening? Maybe even just kind of sneak around and hope for the best? He was going to have to think about this a bit. That and get some more firepower on his side, because who knows what kind of heat these guys were packing. That made two really big things to deliberate on.

This was getting ridiculous. He wasn't beyond waiting to make a move, but there was a difference between mission impossible and mission impatience. And honestly, he'd already taken a bunch of risks over the past few hours; what's one more going to do to him? That, and he kind of already had a solution to the overpowering thing.

So that's why Elijah decided to jump to plan B immediately and throw down Kingdra's Poké Ball. Sure, probably a bad idea, but as long as he played his cards right and nobody recognized him (and god help him if anyone actually did recognize him), then he could get this done in one fell swoop and return to dry land like nothing ever happened.

"Alright," he said as quietly as possible to his ragtag team of three. "I guess I'm a trainer, so I'm gonna have to be, uh, the leader here..."

He silently hoped that it was normal for trainers to lack confidence.

"...uh, Fomantis, sorry I still haven't come up with a good name for you, do that leaf thing that you did back at the park if you can. I have no idea if it's going to work down here where there aren't any, but it's worth a try. Krabby, Kingdra—" Elijah turned to the blue-and-yellow seahorse in front of him. "—uh, I guess that's what you look like, do whatever you do best. You're not mine so I can't really tell you what to do. Offer's open for the crab, though, if you feel comfortable not seeing your mom or dad or whatever anymore," He continued, tapping an empty Poké Ball clipped to his diving suit. "No pressure, though. I know you have a family and I want this to be your decision. If we make it out alive. I'm going to rush in and hope that nothing bad happens."

Elijah took a deep breath. This was it.

"Okay, let's do this."

Dragons-

The Hoenn Youngster chuckled as you go on a full-on offensive assault against the Taillow. The threat of guts was more than enough to you into panic mode, and you decided on a single option. The bird must be gotten rid of at all costs, no matter what it would take. But, wouldn't that also be extremely predictable?

"Taillow, Protect!" The Youngster ordered.

Your heart drops as a protective green barrier surrounds the bird, nullifying the entirety of your orders this round. Yet, it made sense. Protect was the perfect move to allow Taillow to become poisoned. Most pokemon with Guts, or even Poison Heal and Toxic Boost, would utilize this strategy. Not to mention this move was a Doubles mainstay for reasons just like this.

"And while your friend is protected, let's give them a taste of your Surf Zigzagoon," the boy then finishes off his orders for the round.

The little trash panda howls, water dripping from its fur before it sends a full-bodied wave to wash over the battlefield. You see the flash of green from Taillow's protect, it not caring about its ally's move. Though, your team is not so lucky, as Gible takes the hit and your Sizzlipede is more than worse for wear. The poor little bug was on its last legs here, taking two super effective attacks back to back.

At least Taillow's toxic condition would begin to ramp up through the rounds... If this battle stalls out. This was a place where the top trainers gathered together. If you wanted to complete this gauntlet, you'd need to start strategizing a lot better.

What do you do?
