Yanmega Arboreal Cradle - o7

TheKnightsFury: As the battle unfolds you come to realise that flushing away the creepy crawly would be no easy feat, but you weren’t the type to back down from a fight that easily. Rookidee was seemingly a bird of the same feather, rushing in headstrong before you can string your orders together with another Charge Beam. Recognising the electrically charged technique, the Araquanid activates a Mirror Coat around its water bubbles in the nick of time, deflecting with a devastating counterblow which almost knocks the fledgling out of flight!

With the Tiny Bird Pokémon hurtling toward the half-way mark, evasive manoeuvres were a smart follow up: struggling to regain balance, the Rookidee picks up altitude before flitting in all directions until you soon start to see Double. Nonplussed, the menacing Araquanid picks out one of the Team with a second Water Gun, a clean miss as the spritz of vapour passes through a decoy. This gives Rookidee a renewed bout of confidence, beating his tiny wings to generate a Slash of Air, bolstered by the pre-battle Calm Mind and latter Charge Beam. The enemy lets out a blood-curdling screech as the piercing gust strikes square against its abdomen, bits of netting also taking residual damage as the spider scuttles to a sturdier portion of its web. The now fuming Araquanid’s helmet begins to foam as a Beam of Bubbles bombard the skies, the widespread assault starting to make quick work of Rookidee’s doubles, with the fledgling next up on the pecking order...

empoleon dynamite- As requested, you quickly withdraw the newly evolved Snooki into her ball. You admire the old man's Tyranitar as you approach him, thoughts drifting to your own Pupitar who had yet to evolve, despite being in its pupa stage for many years now. Even if he'd evolved though, he'd still likely pale in comparison to this magnificent specimen. This Tyranitar was quite large and you could reason that it was also quite old. Once you get closer you get a better look and notice deep scars in its plated armour, likely from decades of vicious battles. Trying not to spend to much time focusing on the Tyranitar, you quickly explain to the man that you are indeed new in town and were only defending yourself.

"Hmmmm", the old man grumbles, "not the first time I've heard that excuse but I'll give you benefit of the doubt this time. Follow me." You follow the man as he makes his way around the bar, stopping at each patron to check for some form of identification. "I run a tight ship around here, no permit or proof employment then you deal with me. Tyrone is my name, though behind my back they like to call me Ty the Tyrant. Came out here on behalf of the Hunters Guild, there was a big incident out this way recently and they wanted someone to snap this area back into line. Figured it would be a good final challenge before I retire, but turns out this place is as boring as Zubat shit for the most part." Ty is just about finished his rounds when he spots the man who had been taking odds on your battle. "Now where are you heading off to Slick?" The man stops in his tracks, hands instantly digging into his pocket to retrieve the bag he'd stashed the coin in.

"We were just trying to have a bit of fun sir, not often we get new blood to take advantage of." Slick tosses the coin pouch to the old man before slinking away.

Ty opens the bag, doing a quick count as he makes his way towards the bar. He tips most of the bag out into the waiting hands of the bartender. "This should cover the damages and then some, sorry for disrupting your evening." He then hands you the rest of the bag, there was probably about $500 left in it. "You seemed about ready to finish the job when I barged in, seems like you earned that. You look like you could use a bit more though, I suppose your looking for work? I'm heading on out to Mausoleum of Giants in the morning to check on a new dig site, make sure everything is up to code. They could probably use a hand out there and they pay pretty well compared to most places around here. What do you say?"

Rookidee was on the offensive, but Araquanid was proving a more than capable opponent. While Rookidee saw success with another Charge Beam, Araquanid made great use of it as well, using Mirror Coat to return an even stronger attack. Double Team gave both Xander and Rookidee an opportunity to reassess the situation. Rookidee had begun to gave boosts, but they need a couple more under their belt. Araquanid was starting to see through the Double Team though, breaking through the remaining clones with a Bubblebeam.

"Evasive manoeuvres Rookidee! Keep on the move and keep up the boosting with a Flame Charge, then Work yourself Up!" With the boosts from those two moves, they'd be better positioned to go in for a strong hit. "Then go on a Power Trip!" Rookidee let out a reassuring chirp, although Empoleon was starting to worry. He just wasn't sure that Rookidee had would it took to take down this strong of an opponent, not at this level.

Feeding 2 Rare Candies to Rookidee, boosting him to lvl 18

Let off the hook, the traveller felt a shower of relief wash over him, muscles untensing as the old stranger ushered him to follow. Stepping over the debris of garbage and ore, he made his rounds as Emp ambled in tow; it became clear he was spot checking each and every punter. Emp quickly came to learn that the man - named Tyrone (although ‘Ty the Tyrant’ was certainly more befitting) - was dispatched to the Hallows to snuff out the growing dissonance in the region. The traveller had heard whispers of the sorts of crimes that plagued the badlands, as well as the Hunters who policed all reaches of the Cradle like rangers in the old Wild West. As interesting as the stories were, he’d kept his head down up to yet - although it was only a matter of time until trouble found him. Emp’s chain of thought was disrupted as the Hunter hollered toward the bookmaker who was attempting to make a break! His legs just as quickly turned to jelly, forfieting the spoils of their skirmish before slinking into the night. Ty poured the bag onto the bar table, giving most of the loot to the barkeep as way of compensation. He tossed what was left Emp’s way, the trainer catching the bag with a clink. He decided it best to mask his excitement as he jingled what was left of the coin; the Hunter had no reason to reward him for his recklessness and could just as easily take it back.

"You seemed about ready to finish the job when I barged in, seems like you earned that. You look like you could use a bit more though, I suppose your looking for work? I'm heading on out to Mausoleum of Giants in the morning to check on a new dig site, make sure everything is up to code. They could probably use a hand out there and they pay pretty well compared to most places around here. What do you say?"

The traveller was dumbfounded, he’d expected a scalding but found his golden opportunity. Perhaps the Hunter was kinder than his moniker made out, or had he seen something in Emp during those brief flashes of battle. Either way, his answer came clear and resounding: “Yes – I mean, of course I’d like to come along.”

Obtained $500
