TheKnight’sFury:

The lone Krabby standing between Trieu and Jormungand, holding the former hostage in its pincers, certainly talks a big talk... but realistically, it knows it stands no chance against a Gyarados. The Leer isn't even necessary - all it takes is one good look at the serpent's Intimidating face, and the crab yelps and releases Trieu without question. And from there, things only go downhill for the poor crustacean, as a storm of needles rains down upon it, punctuated by a violent Thunderbolt that fries the Krabby in a matter of seconds.

As for Odysseus, the small miscalculation has already cost him some vitality, as the Mud Shot from behind hit the only major chink in the Magnemite's armor. However, despite the weakness to ground moves, Ody is still considerably stronger than the wild Krabby thanks to Jayson's training, and the Water-Type knows it. The vicious Spark that follows sends the crustacean flying out of the arena, and that's the last anyone sees of it.

Once the round is over, Sawk gets back to his feet and congratulates the trio on their success; at the same time, the crowd in the town square has begun to increase in number again, many Pokemon returning to see those that may well be the successors of the Village's hero.

"I knew from the moment I saw you that you were special, but you're more than that... you aren't wild Pokemon, are you?" Sawk asks, failing to hide the sadness in his voice. That realization has implications, of course - the fighter must have understood that the trio belong elsewhere. Still, he does not relent. "Nevermind. Still two more rounds to go, yes? That is, if you think you can take it."

However, he doesn't even wait for answer before playing the Flute again, this time twice. And sure enough, after less than a minute, commotion begins to rise outside of town.

"Hmm, this scent... Well, this is interesting," notes Sawk even before the next foes appear. "I wonder if you'll make it past this round..."

Indeed, a particular smell washes over the square, though Odysseus cannot sense it. It is a mixture of sweet and nauseating, and soon the source reveals itself: bobbing their heads back and forth, three Vileplume come to the arena enticed by the strange tune of the White Flute! As they approach, countless small blades of grass begin to miraculously sprout from the seemingly sterile clay floor of the arena... it's a Grassy Terrain!

*Odysseus gained 2 Levels!*
*Jormungand gained 2 Levels!*
*Trieu gained 2 Levels!*

As they approach, countless small blades of grass begin to miraculously sprout from the seemingly sterile clay floor of the arena... it's a Grassy Terrain!
Everything had went to plan this time, they quickly dispatched the remaining Krabby without taking any more damage themselves. Trieu was pleased with her effort, she had contributed just as much as her companions. She had to admit that she almost bit off a bit more than she could chew. She would likely have to be more careful in the following waves, the last thing she wanted was to be a burden.

The Sawk was soon back on his feet, flute in hand as he commended their efforts so far. He was quick to bring on the second wave, playing an alluring tune that soon drew in a fragrant trio of Vileplume. Their presence seemed to awaken the earth beneath them, causing a Grassy Terrain to sprout. Odysseus was aware of the field effect, it would heal the Vileplume and themselves. Additionally, Grass moves would be stronger.

"Three on three let's take them down", buzzed Odysseus as Jormungand replied with a low growl and Trieu with an excited chatter of her mandibles. Odysseus knew these opponents would be stronger than the last, so he prepared to assist Trieu. He prepared to fire a Thunder Wave at the Vileplume approaching the Skorupi, the paralysis would likely make it easier for the Skorupi to handle. Odysseus was then ready to let loose a Flamethrower at the Grass type across from himself, which he would then follow with an Ice Beam on the same Vileplume.

Jormungand was eager to get ahold of the approaching Vileplume. His mouth filled with flames as he prepared to bathe the one across from him in a Flamethrower. He would quickly follow that up with a Dragon Rage.

Trieu could see her partners preparing and was quick to sort herself out. She would spray the Vileplume closest to her with a Pin Missle before following with a Knock Off and another Leech Life.

TheKnight’sFury:

This time it’s a three-on-three challenge, and one that Jayson’s team seems more than equipped to handle – between Jormungand’s innate flame abilities and Odysseus’s strangely unnatural ones, victory over any Grass-Type Pokemon seems to be a foregone conclusion, regardless of terrain.

Odysseus quickly deduces that, among the three of them, Trieu is least equipped to handle the oncoming threat, and attempts to even the playing fielf by inducing Paralysis on the Vileplume in front of her. A golden pulse of ight pierces through the living plant, causing its muscles (?) to cramp up and spasm, hampering its already slow movements.

Welcoming the opening, Trieu lets loose a storm of needles that hit their mark repeatedly, then tenses up to hit a close-range Knock Off. However, in her eagerness, she fails to sense the change in scents in the air, and once she lunges at her foe, she is surprised to see that its freedom of movements is restored, and the scorpion is pushed back by a violent Petal Blizzard, enpowered by the Grassy Terrain, before she is able to land the melee hit! It is only then that she understands that one of the other Vileplume must have healed her prey with Aromatherapy… Fortunately she is innately resistant to grass moves, or the blow would have been much more severe. She does get some manner of revenge, however, as she digs her needles into Vileplume’s side and drains part of its vitality to lessen her own pain.

Meanwhile, the sapphite tower Jormungand stares at his own foe all the way down below, and almost nonchalantly belches out a stream of flames that severely injures the second Vileplume. Fire envelops he plant and begins to burn away its petals, but midway through the slow roasting, the giant serpent starts to feel somewhat… nauseous. Shifting his gaze briefly, he sees that the third Vileplume has taken aim at him, intent on saving its partner before nothing but ash remains. As the sickly sensantion continues to spread, Jormungand realizes he’s been afflicted by Toxic and, enraged by the cowardly tactic, utterly incinerates the poor Vileplume already ablaze with the blue fire of Dragon Rage. When the blazes die down, nothing remains of the Grass-Type.

Intent on retaliating against the Vileplume who poisoned Jormungand, the Analytic Odysseus taps into his foreign powers and releases a Flamethrower of his own from… from… well, he just does. The fire stream finds its mark, setting alight the petals of the third Vileplume, before a drastic change in temperature blasts it in the form of an Ice Beam. The doubly-effective assault critically injures the Grass-Type, who wobbles from one side to another simply to stay on its feet, a strangely dizzying sequence of anarchic body movements that resemble a Teeter Dance… Odysseus is caught in the hypnotic dance and suddenly he, too, feels unspeakably disoriented.

“The danger of these Vileplume isn’t necessarily in their raw power; it’s simply unfortunate that you ran into them on your second round rather than the last, because of their crippling tactics,” muses the Sawk.

Indeed, although one of the Vileplume has been dealt with and another is on the brink of fainting, Jormungand is now badly poisoned and Odysseus confused. Trieu, the theoretically weakest of the three, remains healthy, as does her direct opponent, both invigorated by the healing properties of the Terrain – but although the massive difference in power between Jayson’s Pokemon and the wild Vileplume has been conclusively established, can they finish the job? And if so, in what condition will they be in for the final round?...

*Jormungand has gained 1 Level!*




Median Dia:

While a Mawile might seem out of place in this environment, a Staryu and Inkay seem to fit right in with Bubbling Beach’s locals, and that might be what urged the Clauncher to approach them more so than the intangible “adventurer aura” that it supposedly sensed. To the crustacean, this seems to be a matter of life or death, the realization of a dream – and his desperation is palpable. If only for that, and no small amount of curiosity thrown in the mix, the trio decides to help. Interestingly, none of them seem to have noticed Clauncher’s mention of “making it all the way to the summit”, even though they’re… on a flat beach.

“Oh thank you thank you thank you!” exclaims the Clauncher, snapping his pincers in satisfaction. “With you guys here I finally have a shot! Tell you what, meet me right here at nightfall, will you? That’s when the fun begins!”

Louise looks at the sky to see it probably won’t take long until sunset. The trio decide to go for a stroll and return later, but their exploration of the shore to pass time yields nothing more than a boring-looking Damp Rock that, for some reason, Miapladicus was interested in keeping.

---

A couple of hours later, with a full moon visible in the starry sky, Chroma’s trio returns to the agreed spot and find that a lot has changed. Dozens of Pokemon have gathered by the seaside and are staring in awe and anticipation at the water, where a countless number of red lights shine intermittently. Approaching the scene, Mia is pleased to find that these lights belong to a massive horde of its own kind, hundreds of Staryu and Starmie flashing their ruby-like gems in rhythmic, almost hypnotic fashion.

“You actually came back! Oh boy, am I glad to see you!”

Clauncher comes running to meet the group with a wide grin, before pointing to the shore and finally offering the explanation that was long overdue.

“Guess it’s about time I tell you what this is all about, eh? So here’s the thing… The Festival of the Stars isn’t much of a party, I’m afraid. It’s actually a ritual performed every year by the local starfish, who gather here on a full moon to communicate with their protector up there in the sky. You see… they come here to meet Jirachi. Thing is, it’s become sort of a tradition among other Pokemon to also try and reach Jirachi on this night, and those who do usually get their wish granted!”

Just then, the Staryu lights stop flickering and become fixed, turning the whole sea red. The ground beneath the team’s feet starts to rumble, and the group watches as a mountain of wet sand begins to rise from the ocean, conjured by the starfish’s strange psychic powers! It grows larger and larger, stretching towards the night sky like a sandy Tower of Babylon, and once it finally stops growing, it has become impossible to see the peak. Then, slowly, the Staryu and Starmie crawl out of the water and begin to climb up the mountain to meet their guardian deity…

It is then that most of the Pokemon who’d been watching by shore suddenly rush towards the summoned mountain themselves in a frenzy, and that’s Clauncher’s cue.

“Come on guys, we have to hurry!” he says frantically. “We have to reach the summit before anyone else, or we won’t get our wishes granted!”

So this is now a race to the top, amidst a horde of psychic starfish that likely don’t want to be disturbed and a bunch of Pokemon fighting to earn a wish from Jirachi… Is the trio still on board with this? If so, how will they tackle this challenge?

Her eyes opened, sobs a little quieter as the duo joined forces to try and shatter the tomb and release the rocky child, but the very faint hope in the Steelix's eyes faded away.

Their attacks had barely left scratches.

"There's nothing you can do to free him," The beast sobbed, shaking her head, muscles visibly rolling in their slots, "It's happening all over the mountain. The Pokemon who are frozen by the Mother of the Snow are stuck like this forever, she'll haunt and hunt until we're all just statues!" The mourning mother bellowed, this eerie conclusion echoing around the mountainside until all that was left was the relentless storm and her sounds of sadness, "You should go back, or it'll happen to you, too. All three of you..."

It seemed Kami's concern might have been correct. The other two had used rather taxing abilities when there was at least one dangerous adversary roaming their path, and it had taken out Pokemon greater than them. With this in mind, what do they do?
It was futile. No matter how hard they tried, neither Jin nor Kyuki could leave a dent in the ice armour that encased the Onix.

Defeated, the ice fox turned around looking downcast. Jin tried to comfort it, but the Vulpix shrugged him off; he needed a moment to collect his thoughts. Ice, which had accompanied since birth - hailstorms walked behind him wherever he went since he could remember - was actually a murderous, relentless force. It was the first time Kyuki considered that side of the element, the first time it saw what ice could do to living creatures. Ice was not just a beautiful natural phenomenon... it was also death. How had he failed to see it? Was he too... a harbinger of that very death?

Not at all, Vulpix. Everyone around you loves to be pelted by your Hail.

With that, the Abra turned around and floated further up the mountain. He was admittedly curious to meet this Mother of Snow - was it as ancient as himself? There was nothing he could learn from all the new, finite life that surrounded him, all sense of wonder and discovery long lost in countless cycles of death and rebirth... but the idea of meeting one as old as him was a glimmer of curiosity in an otherwise unremarkable, predictable world.

Jin took a deep breath not to swing at Kami - fruitless as that attempt would be - and whispered some words of encouragement to the emotionally shattered Kyuki, then gave his condolences to the grieving Steelix mother. Regardless of what awaited them further up the mountain, they were doing this for the Vulpix, who still couldn't shake off the peak's calling... and part of him was doing it for himself as well, the side of him that nurtured the utopian dream of returning to Sai an even better warrior than the monk. And that, he knew, would not come easily or without suffering.

And so, each moved by their own reasons, the trio pressed onward to the summit.

*Jormungand has gained 1 Level!*

Things were once again, not going exactly as planned. While one Vileplume was swiftly dealt with by Jormungand, Trieu struggled against her opponent while Odysseus failed to dispose of his. To make matters worse, Jormungand had been afflicted with toxic poisoning, which would hurt him at an ever increasing rate. Odysseus had been confused by Teeter Dance, greatly reducing his effectiveness in battle.

Even with his mind scrambled, Odysseus was still able to string together some coherent thought. He knew he had to help Jormungand overcome his poisoning. The Gyarados was their best chance at making it through this trial, if he was to succumb to the toxins then they were pretty much done for. The felled Vileplume had used Aromatherapy prior to its demise, perhaps the Magnemite could Mimic the technique. He knew he was confused but he would attempt to copy the move a few times and use it immediately to relieve Jormungand.

The Gyarados stared down at the Vileplume that Trieu had been battling. The Skorupi had tried admirably to defeat the Grass type but herself, but it appeared she needed his help. "Trieu you take the other one, help Odysseus." The Skorupi quickly zipped over to the other Vileplume, clearing a path for Jormungand to attack. Another Flamethrower gathered in the Gyarados's maw, he was then prepared to send the Vileplume on its way with a Twister.

Trieu dashed towards the weakened Vileplume, intent on proving to Jormungand that she was capable of following his orders and finishing what Odysseus started. She prepared to take the Grass type on with a Feint Attack and then Slash at it repetitively until it fell before her.

Recent science has declared that stars weren't merely twinkling spots upon the skyscape, but absolutely massive entities far, far beyond the reach of human technology. Perhaps the scene before the travelers was still much smaller in scale than that, but there was no denying that all these stars were larger than specks and twinkling beautifully. In some ways, the sea really could be compared to the vast vacuum of space...

"Yeah, we came back. It's rude to just bail on someone like that," Louise replied to the clauncher's exclamation. "And we already figured that it wouldn't be much of a walk in the park, given how panicky you were about it earlier."

'Protector?' Mia/Plad echoed as the lobster continued his exposition. 'I wasn't aware that this place had one.'

And then the big reveal dropped, followed by a surprised chorus from all three adventurers.

"Rekamhsiw eht teem ot tsrif eht eb ot tnaw uoy os?" Elen tried to confirm, the fact that he was probably confusing the mission giver still flying over his mantle.

Louise looked over at the massive tower of sand suddenly erected itself from amidst a less twinkly and more red sea. "Well, that may have gotten a bit trickier. You need to climb your way up there?" She tapped her foot into the sand, trying to come up with a plan- scaling sheer heights wasn't exactly in her field of expertise, much less with countless others attempting to do the same. "This... might be possible. I can't guarantee anything, but an idea is better than nothing. Miapladicus, do you think you can get me up there quicly?"

'Not with your weight,' the staryu answered dryly.

"That's easily fixed. Elen, hold this!" The mawile tossed toward the Adventure Bag, and its damp contents, toward the squid and focused her energy to Rise off the ground Magnetically. "Fair warning, clauncher: if this works, you're probably going to wind up a little disoriented." She held the Star Shape pokemon in a light, yet firm, manner, and took a deep breath. "Now, Mia/Plad, use Rapid Spin to get up there as quickly as possible!" And just like that, the two of them took off, leaving crustacean and cephalopod alone on the beach.

The disorienting part? If they got to the top, Louise intended to use Ally Switch to get the clauncher up there in her stead. Of course, that was a very big if...

TheKnight’sFury:

Jormungand, aware of his own strength, knows he can finish what Trieu started. And despite his own condition, he selflessly sends the Skorupi to aid their partner, Odysseus, who has succumbed to confusion. Trieu seems to agree with the strategy – after all, the Vileplume targeting the Magnemite is definitely on its last legs!

The Poison-Type darts across the arena in a dizzying motion, shifting direction so fast and aso often that she leaves afterimages behind, making it impossible for the weakened Vileplume to trace her motions. And once in range, she leaps forward and slashes her target a single time with darkness-infused needles. After a dead-silent stalemate that seems to last for hours, the living plant suddenly passes out, still on its feet, before collapsing to the ground.

Odysseus struggles to even get a proper grasp of what’sgoing on, but the lingering notion that a teammate needed his help endures amidst the chaos that is his mind right now. At first he fails to do much of anything, aimlessly rotating his magnets to no effect whatsoever, andit’s a blessing that Trieu stepped in to knock out his foe, otherwise he’d have been easy pickings for the Vileplume in his dazed state. On the second attempt, however, his Analytic mindset helps him focus and remember two things: what needed to be done, and what he had to imitate to accomplish it. And so, spinning his magnets at full speed, Odysseus manages to centrifuge and collect the scattering perfume particles still in the air, emulating another Aromatherapy as well as a synthetic lifeform could hope to achieve. Fact of the matter is, it seems to work, as Jormungand feel the overwhelming nausea begin to fade, until no trace of poison remains in his bloodstream.

Reinvigorated, the dragon roars arches his head back, gathering fire for the decisive strike. At the same time, the last remaining Vileplume stands defiant in the face of overwhelming odds, and bravely fires a Petal Blizzard at its colossal adversary. To no avail, however, as the stream of flames that follows burns away every last petal before any hit their mark, and once the Grass-Type is engulfed by the Flamethrower, it’s all over.

The trio has been successful one more time, though not without some considerable effort. Jormungand and Odysseus have been cured of their ailments thanks to some quick thinking by the latter, but consecutive use of powerful moves such as Flamethrowers and Ice Beams have left both feeling worn out. Trieu seems to be the healthier of the three, but she too is starting to feel the effects of back-to-back battles… Unfortunately for them, once the last Vileplume faints, the Grassy Terrain withers and vanishes, leaving only lifeless clay in its place.

“Congratulations youngsters,” cheers Sawk. Judging by his reaction, it seems he doubted the party’s success for a moment. “Well, enough of warming up. Are you ready for the real challenge? It’s been a while since I called my old friends…”

The blue warrior walked back to center of the battlefield, inhaled deeply and played the Flute a third time. Once… twice… three times. And mere moments after the last melancholic note echoed across Vivacious Village, the answer came – not from the woods or the beach nearby, not from outside town at all, but from the crowd that had gathered.

“That’s cruel of you, old Sawk...”

“Asking us to pummel these three when they’re already gasping for air…”

Grinning and cracking their joints in anticipation, an Electivire and Magmortar step in the arena while sizing up Jayson’s three partners.

“I met these two as an Elekid and Magby way back when I came to this village,” says Sawk, smiling at the sight of his friends. “First they were admirers… in time, they became my best sparring partners. And now, they will be your last opponents in the White Flute Challenge.”

Magmortar laughs as embers escape his deadly arm cannons.

“Your last opponents, period!”


*Trieu has gained 2 Levels!*
*Odysseus has gained 1 Level!*
*Jormungand has gained 1 Level!*




Median Dia:

At first, Clauncher looks thoroughly confused at Miapladicus and Louise planning to leave him behind. It’shis wish, his glory on the line! But once the Mawile explains the final part of his plan, the crustacean can’t help but grin – as it turns out, he won’t even have to move a muscle to beat everyone else. That suits him just fine!

Elen stands behind with the Clauncher, keeping watch over the team’s possessions, while Mia starts spinning in place and then ascending, before taking off like an oversized Water Shuriken – with Louise holding on for dear life to the rapidly rotating starfish, trying not to vomit or lose her grip. Given how fast Mia is spinning, letting go could likely mean an aerial trip to the summit of the Frozen Fjords.

As Mia goes, rapidly ascending the summoned mountain, it seems as though the local Staryu become interested in the tactic, as if they’d never considered it before. Those which have mastered the move in the wild prepare to emulate Louise’s idea, but Mia already has quite the momentum advantage over all of them. At first, everything seems to be working out…

… Until suddenly, Louise feels herself stopping abruptly. Looking up, she sees a massive hand grabbing hold of Miapladicus by one of its five appendages.

“No way you’re getting to the top before me,” shouts a deep, roaring voice. It’s a gigantic Slaking!

As the grip tightens, Mia’s light flickers rapidly, indicating pain.

“If anyone is getting their wish granted, that’s me,” growls Slaking ominously. “Jirachi will rid me of my Truant condition, and I will be the mightiest Slaking in the world!”

Things have taken a sharp turn for the worse… what will happen now?!


*Miapladicus has gained 1 Level!*

And despite his own condition, he selflessly sends the Skorupi to aid their partner, Odysseus, who has succumbed to confusion. Trieu seems to agree with the strategy – after all, the Vileplume targeting the Magnemite is definitely on its last legs!

The Poison-Type darts across the arena in a dizzying motion, shifting direction so fast and aso often that she leaves afterimages behind, making it impossible for the weakened Vileplume to trace her motions. And once in range, she leaps forward and slashes her target a single time with darkness-infused needles. After a dead-silent stalemate that seems to last for hours, the living plant suddenly passes out, still on its feet, before collapsing to the ground.

Odysseus struggles to even get a proper grasp of what’sgoing on, but the lingering notion that a teammate needed his help endures amidst the chaos that is his mind right now. At first he fails to do much of anything, aimlessly rotating his magnets to no effect whatsoever, andit’s a blessing that Trieu stepped in to knock out his foe, otherwise he’d have been easy pickings for the Vileplume in his dazed state. On the second attempt, however, his Analytic mindset helps him focus and remember two things: what needed to be done, and what he had to imitate to accomplish it. And so, spinning his magnets at full speed, Odysseus manages to centrifuge and collect the scattering perfume particles still in the air, emulating another Aromatherapy as well as a synthetic lifeform could hope to achieve. Fact of the matter is, it seems to work, as Jormungand feel the overwhelming nausea begin to fade, until no trace of poison remains in his bloodstream.

Reinvigorated, the dragon roars arches his head back, gathering fire for the decisive strike. At the same time, the last remaining Vileplume stands defiant in the face of overwhelming odds, and bravely fires a Petal Blizzard at its colossal adversary. To no avail, however, as the stream of flames that follows burns away every last petal before any hit their mark, and once the Grass-Type is engulfed by the Flamethrower, it’s all over.

The trio has been successful one more time, though not without some considerable effort. Jormungand and Odysseus have been cured of their ailments thanks to some quick thinking by the latter, but consecutive use of powerful moves such as Flamethrowers and Ice Beams have left both feeling worn out. Trieu seems to be the healthier of the three, but she too is starting to feel the effects of back-to-back battles… Unfortunately for them, once the last Vileplume faints, the Grassy Terrain withers and vanishes, leaving only lifeless clay in its place.

“Congratulations youngsters,” cheers Sawk. Judging by his reaction, it seems he doubted the party’s success for a moment. “Well, enough of warming up. Are you ready for the real challenge? It’s been a while since I called my old friends…”

The blue warrior walked back to center of the battlefield, inhaled deeply and played the Flute a third time. Once… twice… three times. And mere moments after the last melancholic note echoed across Vivacious Village, the answer came – not from the woods or the beach nearby, not from outside town at all, but from the crowd that had gathered.

“That’s cruel of you, old Sawk...”

“Asking us to pummel these three when they’re already gasping for air…”

Grinning and cracking their joints in anticipation, an Electivire and Magmortar step in the arena while sizing up Jayson’s three partners.

“I met these two as an Elekid and Magby way back when I came to this village,” says Sawk, smiling at the sight of his friends. “First they were admirers… in time, they became my best sparring partners. And now, they will be your last opponents in the White Flute Challenge.”

Magmortar laughs as embers escape his deadly arm cannons.

“Your last opponents, period!”


*Trieu has gained 2 Levels!*
*Odysseus has gained 1 Level!*
*Jormungand has gained 1 Level!*

Although their statuses were cleared and they had beaten the Vileplume, they now found themselves against a pair of opponents who they knew would be much more challenging. The Electivire and Magmortar were both fully evolved Pokemon and to make matters worse, they had type advantages against all of them. Magmortar would be able to burn Trieu and Odysseus into the ground, while the Electric attacks from the Electivire would dispose of the quad weak Jormungand in a matter of moments. They needed to be careful here, one wrong step would see them finished. If their trainer was here, Jayson might have an idea of how they could beat the powerful pair. However they now had to work together if they had any hope of winning.

Odysseus quickly shot out in front of his partners, not wanting them to get caught in his next attack. He let out a Supersonic blast, hoping to scramble the Magmortar and Electivire like the Vileplume had scrambled him.

Jormungand was concerned, the Electivire the reason for his wavered mind. He didn't deal well with Electric attacks, no Gyarados did. But the Magmortar had the potential to finish both Trieu and Odysseus, he knew he must put his own concerns aside and concentrate on taking down the lava spewer first. He prepared to strike with an Aqua Tail to bat the Magmortar away, then drown it in a Hydropump to hopefully deal a brutal blow to the fire type.

Odysseus could see the Gyarados gathering water around his tail and knew exactly what he planned to do. The Magnemite prepared to give his friend a Helping Hand so that his Hydropump would be even more powerful.

Trieu could see that Jormungand was preparing to use Aqua Tail, the Gyarados had spent time training her how to use it herself. She prepared to strike the Magmortar with an Aqua Tail of her own. But first she would apply some Acupressure to herself, any boost would be welcome against this pair of opponents. Lastly she would try and poison the Electivire with a Poison Sting, hoping it would make it easier to handle when they turned their attention towards it.

With this in mind, the Whimsicott waves his little arms and summons a gale of his own, determined to show Shiftry that he, too, can manipulate wind – a powerful Fairy Wind, to be precise!

The sparkling gust blows over the Forest Lord, speckles of light exploding on contact with its wooden skin and damaging him more than any draining move of Cerno’s ever could. Visibly bothered by the technique, Shiftry flaps his fans and summons a Tailwind of his own, the opposite masses of air cancelling each other out – and that’s just the opening Spiritus and Tengu were looking for! With the wind dying down, the duo repeats their previous combination attack, showering Shiftry with a downpour of blazing seeds that sets the already Burned Grass-Type on fire!

Shiftry wobbles and loses his footing, but continues to smile even as his hair and leaf fans are set ablaze. Sensing the shift in the tide of battle, the army of Passimian grows restless and prepares to invade the clearing, but a single arm raise by the other Lord, Oranguru, quiets the horde.

“Very well,” Shiftry suddenly says weakly, “there is merit to your teamwork after all. Now for the final test…”

Struggling to get back to his feet, the Lord raises his fans once more, then flaps them a single time. No Hurricane or Tailwind follow this time around, however; in fact, nothing seems to happen at all…

“Have you heard of the legendary Kamaitachi?” Shiftry inquires, with a hint of amusement in his whispered voice. “A gust that can cut through anything… A true Razor Wind. It will come soon…”

He shifts his gaze to Spiritus and continues to smile through the pain.

“You, phantom, are immune to its invisible blade… but what about your friends? Could you bear seeing them sliced in half? Be it Seedot or Whimiscott, no living creature can avoid being severed in two by the mighty edge that approaches” he taunts. “Can you finish me before my Razor Wind comes?”

The final challenge has been issued. Can the team step up to this last ordeal and end the battle before it’s too late?


Shocked by the Shiftry's announcement the Litwick had to think quickly. Suddenly Spiritus had an idea, turning to Cerno first he spoke confidently, "don't worry about him just keep attacking." The Cottonee nodded and fired another fairy wind at the lord. This one had all his effort in it and all his will and determination to defeat the lord. As his fellow pokemon attacked he directed a minimize in his companion's direction. The litwick hoped that this would help the damage from the razor wind be less likely to hit. Finally, he turned to Tengu "Harden as much as you can my friend. Cerno's wind should finish him off in combination with our burn." The Seedot nodded, as much as a Seedot can nod, ad concentrated on hardening his body and preventing as much damage to himself as possible. The minimize hit Cerno after he had fired his attack so his attack wasn't shrunk in power. The three pokemon prepared for the wind to hit and prayed they would survive the encounter. Their adventure was almost over and they would receive their reward. Hopefully it would be something useful for any of the pokemon present at that moment. Evolution items would be ideal but any sort of boost to the under leveled pokemon would be super helpful. Their trainer had so many pokemon who she loved individually, but even with the improved government level gains were slow and rare candy was weekly but still precious. Hopefully all of Kawaii's pokemon would receive the training they deserved.

TheKnight’sFury:

The real challenge starts now; it almost feels like the first two rounds were a simple warm-up, judging by these foe’s looks alone. And to make matters worse, each of them have mastery over elements which are very dangerous to Jayson’s partners…

Understanding the need to seize control of the flow of battle early on, Odysseus quickly formulates a plan – but can he move fast enough?
Magmortar, seeing the Magnemite break away from the pack, immediately raises his arm cannon, gathering fire for a Flame Burst that will melt the steel creature and catch the puny insect in the blast radius! However, when the time comes to shoot, the Fire-Type is assaulted by a violent migraine that disrupts his concentration, cancelling the move – Magmortar is confused! His partner doesn’t seem to have been as affected, but he too is feeling the effects of the ear-splitting Supersonic.

Capitalizing on the opening provided by Odysseus, Jormungand swings his water-infused tail, striking Magmortar square in the chest and sending him tumbling along the floor! Itthen falls on Trieu to follow up, moving quickly towards the fallen fire titan to hit an Aqua Tail of her own. However, before she can reach her destination, she is intercepted and violently struck from the side with a Fire Punch from Electivire that sends her flying back!

“Snap out of it, you’re letting them embarrass you,” dryly says the Electric-Type as he helps his companion to his feet, before slapping him across the face.

“Damn it, you’re right,” grumbles Magmortar once he comes back to his senses. “Guess we gotta start taking this seriously. Ready to kick things up a notch?”

With that, Magmortar drives a Thunder Punch straight into his partner’s gut! The electricity spreads throughout Electivire’s body, and immediately thereafter, his movements seem to become much faster and more fluid, courtesy of his Motor Drive

Intent on not letting the enemies recover any longer, Jormungand roars and spits out a massive jet of water, which only seems to grow in size and pressure once Odysseus’s magnets start to resonate with the stream, providing a useful Helping Hand. The attack is aimed at Magmortar once more, but the much nimbler Electivire steps in once again, raising a Light Screen that filters the raging current down to a much softer blow, barely enough to make Magmortar lose his balance…

Realizing the threat that the duo is quickly becoming, Trieu, still reeling from the previous Fire Punch, tries to power herself up to match her terrifying foes; she drives one of her own needles into her skin, and the resulting pain only makes her more eager to fight back, sharply increasing her Attack! .Then, knowing they can’t afford to ignore Electivire, she fires a salvo of Poison Sting at the ape, but the enemy’s heightened speed allows him to dodge most of the projectiles; the ones that graze him definitely hurt, but fail to induce any long-lasting poisoning…

“You’re a spunky little bug, we’ll give you that,” taunts Magmortar, who retains his horridgrin despite the punishment he’s already endured.

“I wonder how tough you are without your friends around, though…” muses Electivire.

While the two have played defensively for most of the round, they are now ready to retaliate in force, and what Jormungand had feared turns out to happen. A massive pillar of Thnder strikes the Gyarados down from above, smiting the dragon and sending him to the ground, muscles cramping up uncontrollably as [i]Paralysis[7b] and pain overwhelm him. At the same time, a Daimonji-shaped Fire Blast explodes into Odysseus, sending the living magnet crashing down to earth and leaving him in just as bad a state as Jormungand. All Trieu can do is watch as her companions fall around her, beaten up to the brink of passing out.

“I think the feeling-out process is done,” declares Electivire. “If there was ever a time for you three to go all-out, you better start thinking about it.”

Even though Magmortar has taken considerable damage, the enemies seem overwhelmingly powerful, are protected by a Light Screen and one has a dangerous Speed boost. But even so, they seem to believe Jayson’s partners are yet to reveal their true power… is that true?




Kawaiiconcept:

A timer has been set by the fading Shiftry, an ominous announcement of disaster to come. Kamaitachi, the Razor Wind, is said by some to be a weapon of the gods, a divine invisible blade of wind that strikes without mercy – and the Grass-Type has just summoned it.

The choice presented to the three is whether they will prepare to endure the hit, or try to finish the fight before it ever comes. It seems, however, that the team chooses to do a little bit of both – rather than go all-out an try to wipe out what remains of Shiftry’s vitality, they split efforts into attacking and defending. Perhaps that is not the wisest…

Commanding the troops, Spiritus instructs Tengu to defend as best as he can, Hardening his shell as much as possible to hopefully endure the oncoming hit. It then falls on Cerno to provide the offense and, perhaps realizing better than anyone else the true importance of disposing of the enemy before it’s too late, the Whimsicott puts every last ounce of strength he has into summoning a powerful Fairy Wind. The wind picks up progressively, gaining power until it becomes a gale of silver powder that burns shiftry on contact, the light particles striking the Dark tree over and over again – but are they enough to topple the Lord on their own, with absolutely no attack from the other companions to follow up?

When the Fairy Wind dies down, Shiftry remains standing, eyes glazed over but not yet fallen, and just as promised, the Razor Wind comes, blowing in opposite direction. A gigantic wind edge falls from the sky, and that’s when Spiritus attempts to protect his partner by… Minimizing it? It seems to have slipped the Litwick’s mind that only he can shrink in size, and not transfer that property to another Pokemon. And as a result of that miscalculation, he has to watch as Razor Wind cuts mercilessly through Cerno, who falls to the ground incapacitated, and then through Tengu, who is left barely clinging on to a shred of consciousness when it’s all done.

But finally, mercifully, the Lord faints soon thereafter, exhausted by pain and energy spent, collapsing like a dead tree in the middle of the clearing. Despite the risks they took, and despite Cerno fainting before the end, the team has ultimately been successful!

The Oranguru stands up and orders the Passimian around the arena to settle down, then helps the Shiftry to his feet before addressing he Litwick, Whimsicott and Seedot.

“You were brave, even if you still have much to learn. We were… entertained. Those two boxes are yours; one gift from me, and one from Shiftry. Take them, and you have our permission to leave whenever you wish. We are glad to have met you, little Pokemon full of heart.”

Spiritus opens Oranguru’s small box, finding 1x Heart Scale inside, whereas Tengu opens Shiftry’s box and retrieves the precious Leaf Stone it contains.

And with that, their adventure is over, the first time they have ever journeyed the world without company of their human Trainer. Hopefully, in doing so, they learned the importance of teamwork and the miracles it can achieve.

*Cerno gained 2 Levels!*
*Tengu gained 2 Levels!*
*Spiritus gained 2 Levels*


((Thanks for playing, hope you enjoyed your time in II! As a parting word of advice, don’t forget to look up what each attack does before ordering them – even in an RP context, sometimes it’s just not possible for the updater to overlook some mechanics; in this particular case, Minimize is an attack that only the user can pull off, and not force something else to shrink. Something to keep in mind for future adventures!))

Separated by Tyrantrum’s Rock Tomb wall, the team is now in a serious predicament – Momo most of all, as he is the only one in direct confrontation with the ravenous beast. Fortunately, Mio remains grounded and level-headed enough to instruct the party: she and Kei attempt to shatter the stone barrier, while Momo tries his best to measure up to the angry giant – a scenario the lazy Sylveon would much rather avoid altogether, but whose inevitability becomes ever more apparent as Tyrantrum draws nearer...

Kei goes to work on the wall, employing the same technique as before, and fortunately with similar results: with every claw thrust of his Brick Break, the Tomb breaks further and further apart. Meanwhile, Momo finally finds it within him to turn around and face the oncoming threat!

The ground shakes violently with every step of the rampaging Tyrantrum, and it takes every ounce of courage still dormant within the consummate coward to make Momo stand his ground and summon his newfound fairy energy. He channels it in his ribbons and the faintest of breezes begins to blow inside the cave, growing progressively in intensity.
It is at that moment that Kei manages to completely shatter the wall, and in the blink of an eye, the team is reunited against the looming threat! Tyrantrum is now within arm’s reach, jaw agape, ready to devour them while the Fairy Wind is yet to pick up proper force… but the giant stops is charge abruptly, inches away from the group. Once the magical gale is strong enough, Tyrantrum is already completely stationary, eyeing down the party as the damaging wind pelts away at him…

“Why?” he growls, all trace of anger gone and replaced by genuine curiosity. “Why would you risk your lives for such a pathetic, honourless creature? What is he to you that you would defy the Ancient?... Small Pikachu, small Charmander, both filled with such remarkable potential… why would you throw it away for his sake?”

Was it all a test? Was Tyrantrum’s ourburst of fury a façade? Or was he so genuinely touched by Mio and Kei’s dedication that his fury was quelled by the display of foolish bravery? Whatever the reason behind the Ancient’s sudden change in behaviour, it falls on the Pikachu and Charmander to provide an answer and satisfy the titan’s curiosity - unless, of course, they plan to continue the fight while his guard is down…
Mio opens her mouth in order to reply to the question she was just asked but is cut off before she even gets a word out. “I did it guys! I attacked the Ancient! Did you see it??” Momo begins to boast to the pair who had emerged from the Rock Tomb. “Momo… Shut. Up. He is literally right in front of us listening to every word that comes out of your mouth.” Mio is completely exasperated at this point. “Yeah? Well it’s not like it’s a secret. I’m pretty sure he’s already well aware.” Momo says very matter of factly. Mio just face palms and takes a deep breath in order to hold herself back from murdering Momo. Kei, feeling bad that the Ancient’s question had seemingly been ignored, begins to answer it himself, except he won’t make eye contact with the Ancient since his legs are already shaking out of fear and he is afraid looking at him may make him pass out.

“W-w-w-well he’s f-family and we l-l-love him v-very much!” Kei is having a hard time getting his words out so he begins to approach Momo, ready to hug him to prove his affection but Mio quickly gets between them before Kei has the chance. “I can assure you, that is most definitely not the reason. The reason is because our trainer would probably cry if we came home without Momo. I, on the other hand, would be perfectly happy feeding him to you but I do care about my trainer and don’t want to see her cry.” Mio just puts it all right out there, she has no problem with making eye contact with the Ancient and telling him exactly how it is. “… Well that was a very rude thing to say. But eh, it’s the truth.” Momo seems indifferent to Mio’s response. “T-that’s not true, Momo! I really do love you because you’re my family!” Kei is all flustered now and is feeling extra sad after hearing Mio’s bluntness. “Mhm, I know Kei. You love everyone.” Momo, who is still indifferent, has begun to groom one of his ribbons to pass the time. “As long as you know. I’m going to give you an extra big hug later.” Kei has all but forgotten about the Ancient’s presence and is just determined to prove his feelings to Momo. At this point, Mio is just beginning to feel uncomfortable. “Anyway! Now that you have the answer to your question, what do you want Ancient? If you want a fight I’m right here! Bring it on!” Mio gets into a fighting stance and waits for the Ancient’s next move.

They were fucked. Odysseus rarely slumped to obscenities but it accurately summoned up their situation. Trieu was too weak, Jormungand had been dealt a mighty blow and was paralyzed, while he himself was feeling worse for wear. They had little to no options left, Jayson would never trust him again. He was meant to be smart, he should have been able to devise an effective strategy. Jormungand was flailing hard, his tail slamming into the tough ground, shaking the earth with every blow............. "Eureka", cried the Magnemite as he finally thought of a solution. Gathering another burst of Aromatherapy to clear the Gyarados's paralysis, he cried out to his allies. "Trieu quickly climb on top of Jormungand", the Skorupi was quick to listen, leaping up onto the Gyarados's back. "Jormungand, use Earthquake as many times as you can, shake the life from their bodies!" Odysseus found himself rather erratic, a feeling he wasn't rather used to. He would boost Jormungand's Earthquakes with Helping Hand, it would be super effective against both opponents so the stronger the better.

Trieu was feeling rather neglected. Ordered to climb onto Jormungand's back, she climbed higher, up to rest atop his head. Their opponents looked mean and scary, but Trieu wanted to do her part to help. She began to prick Jormungand with Acupressure, planning to attempt it twice. Should Jormungand need her assistance however, she was ready to let a darker side of herself loose. She could feel the shadow power grow within her, it was time to release her Shadow Rave!
