Phantump Twisted Roots Gym

Twisted Roots Gym

Within the outskirts of Fizzytopia rests a secluded and dark cave. Those brave enough to venture into the depths of the cave are met with a peculiar sight: a dense grass ecosystem. Trees, foliage, and mushrooms flourish within the cave, growing towards the trickle of light that shines from small cracks in the ceiling. Within the center is a tremendous tree, missing all it's leaves but sporting various bushels of mushrooms and other fungi. Overgrowth of it's trunk has lead to the perfect staircase to assist people in getting to the top, where the gym leader makes gym preparations and prepares for oncoming challengers. Many plants and overhanging moss that lingers on the walls of the cave are some that have not been seen for millennia by human eyes. A gift to all those that come and partake in the splendor of the gym, the beautiful sight of well kept plants.

Isaac was never one for positions of authority. His anxiety spiked at the mere mention of being entrusted with a gym. Yet, seeing such a rich and bountiful spectacle hidden away for so long within the beautiful cave made him want to do whatever he could to protect it. Not to mention his Pokemon seemed absolutely thrilled at the idea of getting a chance to fight in a gym setting. Within his time in Fizzytopia he had gone from a recovering addict to a respected trainer within the league. Although surprised at his inclusion, he welcomes the idea of trying new and exciting things.

The cave seemed to attract a dense amount of energy, and although Isaac was not exactly familiar with it, he began to realize that the cave may in fact be one of the fabled Power Spots. Not wanting to interfere with the nature order of the cave, Isaac did as little as he could to the cave. Under an outcrop of mossy overhang he constructed a standard battle arena, but otherwise left everything as natural as he could. Although not a scholar, Isaac is intent on discovering exactly what secrets this Power Spot holds in his newly dubbed Twisted Roots Gym.

The cave was strangely quiet today. Normally Isaac could notice the occasional Pokemon restlessly fussing around in the foliage... but today it seemed as though there were no signs of life within the cave. It was odd, and Isaac new something was afoot the moment he stepped down from the center tree to take a look around. His steps were careful as he made his way through the dense forest, afraid that something horrific was the cause of the Pokemon seemingly disappearing from view.

With Vinny at his side, he felt as though he could accomplish anything. He wandered deeper into the cave, brushing away the leaves and branches in their way before coming across a large formation of mushrooms. It appeared as though no human had ever gone this deep before, causing Isaac to marvel at the spectacle. He glanced upwards, noticing that the cracks in the roof of the cave, which usually gave way to sunlight, had become clouded and murky The sky overhead had seemingly shifted from sunlight to storming, causing Vinny's ears to droop. She could sense something abnormal was happening, and she did not like it one bit. Suddenly, the large formation of mushrooms shook and shifted, a mass of energy flying upwards from the center of them. The overpowering red glow from the energy shot through the crack in the ceiling, alerting others that something was happening within the usually dark cave.

Isaac shielded his eyes from the light, but was quickly alerted by a shriek from Vinny. The mushrooms broke apart, a large green spiked figure raising from the mass. Isaac quickly ran back to his camp, realizing that they needed help --- or the creature would destroy the ecosystem within the cave. He rushed to the top of the tree, quickly slamming out an email.

[RAID BOSS APPROACHING!] was the first line of the distress call. [The outpouring of energy makes me believe it is a category FOUR raid boss.] Vinny's eyes darted backwards, which focused on the growing cactus man that was swiping at some of the plants and trees in the distance. Isaac nodded to her, fingers getting to work on the keyboard once again. [The raid boss has been identified as a CACTURNE. Requesting a team of EIGHT trainers for assistance.] He hit send, praying that help would arrive soon.

Xander had gotten his father's message, but his father's gym was on the other side of the region. There was no way he'd make it there in time and his father's Power Spot wasn't the only one that was active. They weren't far from the Twisted Roots Gym when the call had gone out, it only made sense that they rush to the aid of the Gym Leader there. He'd just been through a nearby town, where he had managed to find someone to take on the Toxel he'd found on the Springtide Isle. The damn thing had been crying ever since it hatched, even now its cries rang through his head. He'd tried everything to put a stop to the hatchling's cries, but as soon as he handed it over to the breeder, the cries stopped. Seems she was just a bit picky. It wasn't all bad though, he didn't know it at the time, but the Toxel's cries had attracted something else. It had been tailing them for days, once they'd left the breeder, the Pokemon revealed itself. It looked similar to Toxel, it was the same bright purple, yet it was distinctly larger and more developed. A quick scan with his Pokedex revealed the Pokemon to be a Toxtricity. After a heated battle, the Toxtricity conceded, expressing a desire to join Xander and his team. Up until that point, Xander had only focused on traditional Starter Pokemon. However, there was something about the Toxtricity that filled him with confidence, perhaps it was the Pokemon's own bravado rubbing off on him. Maybe he was limiting himself too much by only capturing Starter Pokemon? It was time to break the trend.

Xander and Toxtricity grinned as they stared up at the Cacturne. "Damn, that thing is nearly as big as that Snorlax", Xander commented, Toxtricity shrugged. He wasn't there to see the Snorlax, but he was keen to have a crack at this big bastard. His electric mane sparked with excitement. The Toxtricity begins to strum his chest organs, something he always did to work himself into a battle frenzy. Xander was still smiling with delight, the Toxtricity's tune filled him with confidence, it was certainly better than that Toxel's crying. More people were beginning to arrive, the battle would begin shortly.....

Toxtricity (Amped)

After the Gigantalax incident at Springtide Isle, the Fizzytopia region was abuzz with speculation as to the Dynamax phenomenon. Previously only known to occur within specific areas of the Galar region, it had now occurred on Fizzytopian shores, and this prompted people to wonder- would it happen again? Could Fizzytopia's Trainers Dynamax their own Pokémon? Where else in Fizzytopia was this even possible?

Some of those questions had started getting answers as of late. Rumors of an emerging Gym system began to circulate, before being outright confirmed later on. Several Gyms had already been established in the region, with numerous Trainers putting in their applications to be named Gym Leaders as well. And at the moment, though no formal Gym challenge had emerged, they were plenty busy- each Gym had been founded on what was known as a Power Spot- a site where Dynamax energy was released, and thus, where Dynamaxing was possible. And sometimes, wild Pokémon would succumb to this. Many of Fizzytopia's Trainers had signed up to receive email notifications of such instances, the better to be able to go and help.

Which was why, when Keith Masters heard his PokéGear going off while he and his girlfriend were healing up their Pokémon in the Sludge Wave Coast Pokémon Center, he was real damn quick to pull it out and look at it. "OK, raid boss approaching," he murmured, selecting the alarming email title to open the whole thing. 'Uh huh... category four... it's a Cacturne," he reported to Willa."

"Cacturne," Willa repeated, taking out her Pokédex and bringing up the relevant entry.

"Cacturne, the Scarecrow Pokémon. A Grass and Dark-type, and the evolved form of Cacnea," droned the device. "It stalks its prey in the desert, striking when the prey is exhausted and weak. It becomes active at night when the temperature in its desert home drops."

"Grass and Dark- Yanmega should do well," Willa smirked, putting away her Pokédex as Keith put away his PokéGear. "Let's be ready-"

"Um, Willa," interrupted the blue-eyed Banette behind the counter. "I'm sorry, but Yanmega and the others are gonna need a little extra time. They're still performing maintenance on the healing machine," Helena explained apologetically.

"Gah," grunted Willa. "That means I can't..." She gave a deep sigh, and gave Keith a look. "Can you do this yourself?" she asked. "I wish I could-"

But Keith smiled. "It's perfectly fine," he assured her. "You got the next one. Wish me luck." He plucked a Valentine Ball off his belt as he spoke. "Lily is exactly what that Cacturne doesn't want to go up agains- WAH!" he exclaimed as a Premier Ball on his belt burst open, letting out an Eevee into the open. "Leo? What the-" began Keith.

"Vui! Vee vee, vee vui!" Leo interrupted, looking up at Keith with a determined and serious expression.

Keith knew exactly what this was about, and sighed. He was about to ask Leo if he was sure, but stopped himself. Leo was sure. Leo had always been sure. He had never not been sure. He'd been given way more time than he ever wanted to think things through, and his stance never changed once. Perhaps it was time for Keith to finally admit that Leo knew what the hell he was doing. "...Alright, then," he conceded, digging a Fire Stone and a pair of TMs out of his bag. "There's no turning back, Leo- let's show 'em what we got."



Keith showed up at the Twisted Roots Gym, looking up in awe at the colossal conniving cactus. He was far from the first arrival, but he was here now, and ready for action, Premier Ball gripped in his hand. "Leo! Let's go!" he exclaimed, hurling the white sphere forward. And in a flash of light, there appeared the formidable and fluffy form of a freshly-evolved !

"Flaaaaaaaare!" Leo exclaimed, looking up at the raid boss. That Cacturne was huge. But it was also a Grass-type, and he was finally the ferocious Fire-type he always knew he was destined to be. They were ready. It was time to do this.

OOC: Entering this raid with Leo, who gets a Fire Stone, TM Flame Charge, and TM Flamethrower used on him in preparation.

What? Eevee is evolving!

Leo is the son of Cyanide and Pom. He has a fiery personality and can be more than a little hotheaded, always itching to rush into a battle, regardless of whether he actually stands a chance. An intense individual in pretty much every aspect of his life, not just in terms of his passion for battling and his appreciation for all things fiery, but also in terms of how he feels about his family. Anyone threatening any of Leo's loved ones will be met with the Flareon's full and considerable wrath. Considering his hotheaded personality and his appreciation of fire, it was never hard to guess which way he intended to evolve. It was always more of a question of if he was ready, and when the time came to take on a Dynamaxed Cacturne, Keith finally conceded that yes, Leo was ready to evolve.

By sheer coincidence, Alex had been wandering around aimlessly round some natural cave systems, mind wracked with odd thoughts. It had been a scant couple of days since he had left the Arcane Realm for some time to recover from the events there, events that had left something of a lasting effect on him. He had always prided himself on being an exceptionally difficult book to read, an enigmatic and tactical thinker who put forth skill over overall compassion, the sort of person who, if plied with enough influence and dirty money, could have very well ousted the higher ups and taken control of a criminal organisation.

Yet only a couple of days ago a fallen mortal turned pokemon had wormed their way through the countless layers of cladding over his heart and made him consider his personal life, and the past couple of days he had been deep in thought, reminiscing on his own history. He had already pieced together what false life he had and tossed them aside, but there was still plenty more the Order had instilled into his naive mind, plenty that he would have to figure out, and plenty to consider whether the Order were the good guys or just another shadow government pulling strings here and there to keep them on top.

But most of all on his mind was how close he felt, and the brief moment of belonging. That Menefer had made him feel ways that nobody else could, put emotions into him that no other person could, and even though he had some blotchy history with a couple of women in the past, such flings never went anywhere. Hell, for all he knew he could be an oblivious dad to someone. No. Silliness.

His ambling thoughts were derailed by a sudden call for support, and a ray of light from a nearby cave. Pushing these thoughts aside, he barreled forth into the cave and happened upon a group of congregating trainers, a very large Cacturne brimming with extreme energy, and some familiar crimson clouds swirling around its head.

"Ah shit, here we go again..." Alex growled, already reaching for one of his balls, the cactus pokemon very quickly deciding the best option as the Muscular pokemon emerged, gripping her concrete pillars and ready to smash that dark type down a peg or three with impeccable force. His own feelings could wait til later: right now, there was steam to be blown off.


Alex will enter the raid with Tantalia the Conkeldurr. Her stats are below.

Species: Conkeldurr.
Gender: Female.
Level: 50.
Obtained: Trade with Celebii151.
Poke Ball: Poke Ball.
Type: Fighting.
Ability: Sheer Force.
Nature: Bold.
Contest Stats: 0 all.
Hold Item: None.
Bond: 0.
Evolutionary Track: Timburr > Gurrdurr (Level 25) > Conkeldurr (Trade)

Bio: Fighting types such as Conkeldurr are presumed to be brawny men. Tantalia, called after the resilient metal, is not this. As a female who wasn't the most articulate in conversation, the then Timburr was confused at her place on Alex's team, but following events with Isaac, the pokemon developed her own personality. Stalwart and sturdy, she lives to shatter the stigma surrounding her species and fighting types in general, proving her natural strength and skill with construction to aid her allies. She helped Alex with making his base, and remains one of his most physically imposing pokemon, despite her kindly nature.

Level: Pound, Leer, Focus Energy, Bide, Low Kick, Rock Throw, Wake-Up Slap, Chip Away, Dynamic Punch, Scary Face, Hammer Arm, Slam.
Egg: None.
Machine: Counter, Focus Punch, Toxic, Bulk Up, Hidden Power Steel, Sunny Day, Taunt, Hyper Beam, Protect, Rain Dance, Frustration, Smack Down, Earthquake, Return, Dig, Brick Break, Double Team, Rock Tomb, Facade, Rest, Attract, Low Sweep, Round, Focus Blast, Fling, Payback, Retaliate, Giga Impact, Stone Edge, Bulldoze, Rock Slide, Poison Jab, Grass Knot, Swagger, Sleep Talk, Substitute, Power-Up Punch, Confide, Crossfire.
Move Tutor: Drain Punch, Ice Punch.

It wasn't long after the Gigantamax Snorlax incident that Hyrem started getting multiple requests from people newly hired as Gym Leaders for Fizzytopia, all of them about this phenomenon everyone was hearing about called Power Spots, where Pokemon would be able to channel Dynamax Energy and grow to enormous sizes. Left unchecked, these Pokemon were going to wreak havoc on the world at large, but Hyrem would only have the ability to help out one of them at this point. With that in mind, as much as he wanted to help Gary with his problem, he decided to answer Isaac's call instead due to the work they had done together in the past and the idea of meeting a Pokemon he had never seen before.

He and his Scolipede mount, Aisa, hadn't even arrived at the location proper, and already he saw a monstrous looking cactus creature with a triangular "hat" and thorns all down its arms and legs, as well as a creepy smile to go along with the wicked yellow eyes. "Whoa, what is that!?" Hyrem yelled out in surprise as he scanned the Dynamax Pokemon on the way over:

Cacturne, the Scarecrow Pokemon. This Pokemon lives in the desert, staying stationary during the day to conserve energy and moisture and starts becoming active at night when the desert is cooler. It then joins other Cacturne to stalk prey, mostly those weary from their activities during the day inside the desert. Its blood is comparable to that of desert sand.

"Wait, if this is normally a desert Pokemon..." Hyrem looked at the lush forest around him. "...We better deal with that thing before it turns this place into its own desert! Come on, Aisa, let's hurry so we can synch up and battle!"

"Scollllllll!!" she roared before going into a full charge towards the area.


Entering with my Scolipede, Aisa!

Name: Aisa
Species: Scolipede♀ (Size x1.4)
Level: 47
Current Location: Inactive
Ability: Poison Point (30% chance that contact will Poison the opponent)
Nature: Impish (+Def, -SpAtk, likes Sour, hates Dry)
Held Item: None
Bond: 23
Contest Stats: Beauty 70/Cool 70/Cute 70/Smart 70/Tough 70
Current Movepool: Defense Curl, Rollout, Poison Sting, Screech, Pursuit, Protect, Poison Tail, Bug Bite, Iron Defense, Venoshock, Megahorn, Baton Pass, Agility, Steamroller, Toxic, Venom Drench, (Pin Missile), (Rock Climb), (Twineedle), {Gyro Ball}, (Spikes), {Rock Smash}, (Take Down), {Infestation}, [Aqua Tail], (Toxic Spikes), {Dig}, [Endeavor], [Iron Tail], [Snatch], {Smart Strike}, [Stomping Tantrum], {Bulldoze}, [Throat Chop], {Poison Jab}
