Slash had gotten the call for assistance at the Saccharine Sweets Power Spot. A Herdier ha overflowed with Dynamax energy and started going crazy. Much be the start of the month. His first thought was to bring their Lillipup. She was getting close to evolving, and the fight would probably be enough to push her to becoming a Herdier herself. But while that would be nice and poetic, he did have a pretty freshly hatched Pokemon whom he needed to put through her paces, and she did have an advantageous type matchup against the Herdier. This, of course, would be his as of yet unnamed Riolu. While she was a very new addition, he already felt pretty close to her. Maybe a similar wavelength or something of the like.

As he arrived at he Gym, it seemed that he wasn't the only one with the idea to face down this rampaging doggo with a doggo of his own. Or even the only one who had picked this specific kind of doggo for it. Of the four raiders who answered the call, there were 3 Riolu participating, as well as a Mawile whose mannerisms seemed oddly... Riolu-like. Together, they were quite the arffy pack to woof this borkin fight.

She was pretty new to this. This was actually her first fight ever, in fact. She'd probably have to keep an eye on the other two (three?) Riolu here, pick up what she could from them. Consulting his PokeDex, Slash was amused to find out that all three of the potential abilities a Riolu could have were represented here in this pack of boofs and borks.

"You may be young, but I believe in the power you have inside of you. Unleash your Hidden Power!" Slash shouted out. "Po po li!" Caprina, his ever-present Popplio starter, agreed from his arms.

Arriving on the island, Ethan saw a Dyanamxed Herdier wreaking havoc. Digging holes, marking its territory, and eating the scenery. This dog needed to be taught a lesson, and well it was up to the small group that gathered there to do so. Scanning the people who arrived, he saw two more Riolu and then a Mawile. The Mawile looked a little out of place and was trying its best to look like an honorary Riolu.

One of the other Riolu looked extremely inexperienced, but it was fine. This was a pretty easy fight, considering its three-star designation. Milanor was ready and raring to go, not only to impress the other Riolu there but to show his training over the past few months. His silver fur was glistening in the sunlight, and his wolven heritage was starting to show.

"Let's show this dog who's the better canine! Milanor, start off with a Force Palm!" Ethan ordered, receiving a nod from his partner for the match.

"Seems the mutt's smarter than I thought," Ethan chuckled, showing a toothy, devilish grin.

They definitely had underestimated it, the canine already going in hard with a Max Mindstorm and a Psychic Fangs. The latter move was definitely deadlier in this case, with the Misty Terrain taking over the battlefield. Three fighting types were easy pickings with that one move. Purple swirls covered the field, and that'd be a big issue. Not only would they have to worry about Psychic Fangs getting a huge damage boost, but also a more limited move pool.

Milanor seemed to slow down and stop to assess the situation at hand as well. He couldn't rely on his speed here, just sure-fire hits and pure power. He figured that his priority moves were out of the question, meaning he was stuck with effectively one move. He looked at his trainer, a little worried.

"Well, guess we're stuck with old reliable," Ethan stated, and the Riolu nodded in response, coming to terms with the situation. "I know you like your flashy, speed tricks, but this is a more tactical fight than you'd like. Hit it hard with another Force Palm! Let's just hope that we can find an opening soon."


~~~

We're gonna Force Palm (60 BP)!

Two of the allied Riolu rushed forward to plant their paws on the giant Herdier, blasting energy through the contact point to attack its system, while Slash's Riolu and the teethy Riolu kept at more of a distance, forming several small orbs and one large orb, respectively, with Fighting spirit, and shooting them at the enlarged woofy Normal. The Herdier seemed to completely avoid the chance of becoming paralysed by the forceful palm strikes, to the raider group's misfortune. Knowing it was against four Riolu, the Max Raid Boss Herdier drew upon the Psychic type Max move, Max Mindstorm, thankfully blasting the Riolu most easily able to take the blow, the sturdy one. It followed up with another Psychic move, this time channeling the energy through its teeth to crunch down on a different Riolu, the female of the melee pair who had rushed it down earlier. That had to hurt. Not only did that terrain have weird effects on the quicker sort of moves, such as Quick Attack, or one of the allied Riolu's Prankster-assisted moves, but it also represented a boost to the power of any Psychic moves used, one of the biggest threats to the raiding party as a whole.

Still, they were all still standing for now, and it was not as though they hadn't done quite a bit of damage on their end. In fact, it probably would not be long before the standard barriers came up, if patterns held. The steel and fairy Riolu on their side looked like he was about to let loose another large orb of Fighting spirit, a trick Slash's own Riolu would need to pick up at some point. That seemed to be their strongest offense, the sheer amount of force behind it being staggering. He'd probably drive the giant doggo to the point of needed to protect itself with those barriers. The other duo would probably continue on with their gentle looking but nonetheless brutal assault.

Slash rubbed Caprina's head. He then pulled out his PokeDex, deciding to consult it on the moves his Riolu was capable of at the moment. If he was going to put her through her paces proper, he couldn't just mindlessly spam moves, after all, and the barriers would be the perfect opening to do so without compromising the raid team's strategy. As far as offense, there unfortunately wasn't much, given her lack of training. The terrain the Dynamax Doggo had arfed onto the field would also bork up a couple of the moves she had, countering their quickened nature. There may be a way to boof out from that terrain as well, though.

"All right, Riolu. Let's see what else you can do. Call upon the power of the battlefield beneath you and let loose with a Terrain Pulse!" She nodded, closed her eyes, and lifted her paws in front of her to start to draw upon the terrain's power. For a Pokemon line known to specialise in pulse and aura moves with great ease (even if they weren't any stronger), it should be right up her alley.

OoC: Terrain Pulse (50 BP, Psychic Terrain)

The heat of the sun soon took over the island, causing everything to heat up. Smells of various sugary sweets melting permeated the air, and the swirls of the Psychic Terrain created a nauseating experience. It was hard to think due to the sensory assault, but no matter. They'd find a way to get through this too, now with the Herdier strategizing to fight all the Pokemon here.

Though, it seemed odd that both of its attacks hit the same targets as they did last round. Maybe this was luck, who could honestly say. Well, luck for the two of them, not their teammates. Milanor did have an uncanny knack of circumventing and avoiding bad situations... Luck of the thief.

Ethan then felt his Dynamax band fill with energy and saw that the Mawile already ordered its devastating attack. This seemed to be the perfect time to do this, so it was time for a gigantic Riolu. Recalling Milanor into his ball for a second, Ethan let it grow before tossing it back out. Milanor, now giant, peered at the Herdier, ready to pummel it into oblivion.

"You know what to do! Give it a powerful Max Knuckle!" Ethan ordered and watched as a giant orange fist began to descend from the sky.

Dynamaxing. Max Knuckle (80 BP off of Force Palm).

The powerful Focus Blast from their sturdy friend was indeed enough to drive the Herdier to the point of erecting barriers, a trio of them, which were blown apart by the melee duo's palms and Slash's Riolu's attack right away. For her part, she pulled the Terrain Pulse off without issue, her melding the Psychic energy from the terrain into her naturally strong aura. Her paws glowed blue, and she pointed her palms in the direction of the barrier she was to break, shooting a purplish pulsating beam into it.

The Herdier's actions were oddly extremely similar to its last pair. A Max move that set up a boost for moves of its type, then followed up with a biting move of the boosted types. On the same targets in the same sequence, at that. This time, however, it was a pair of fiery moves, the Max Flare setting up harsh sunlight and, while the steel fairy Riolu doggo friendo was the most resistant to the Psychic move beforehand, he was absolutely the most vulnerable to the fire move. Luckily, while both of the hit Pokemon looked like they were not doing all too well, they were at least still in the fight for the time being.

The Trainer with the melee bork on their team that had thus far avoiding getting woofed, started to have the Dynamax energy from the Power Spot converge around him. While Slash and the toothy Riolu's Trainer had both taken the pass on Dynamaxing when the energy had gathered around them, this Trainer gave an indication of intent to use it. Probably the best option. Slash's Riolu wouldn't be able to call upon the power of Max Knuckle with the way his two Fighting moves, Hidden Power and Gummi Bomb, interacted with Dynamax particles, the other melee Riolu was way too heavily damaged right now, and the fairy doggo was a lot like Slash's Druddigon, with his Sheer Force ability. Max Knuckle already was more of a ramping move than a power move, and his offensive prowess would be cut significantly if he went into that state. They probably wouldn't have terribly long before the inevitable second round of barriers came up as well, and the Dynamaxed state would be beneficial to blast through those easier as well.

Slash still was pretty limited in what he could order his Riolu to do. It seemed like this was the overall case for the entire raid party, in fact. He was glad she was at least keeping pace, given how inexperienced she was. She at least seemed to be taking in the limited actions of her allies, observing and learning in the middle of the fight.

Slash was confident that was how she felt in this moment. It was like he could feel her determination, her curiosity, her thirst for knowledge and for battle. He got dizzy, and, for a fraction of a second, his vision messed up. For just that brief snapshot, the Herdier looked closer and taller, or maybe he was closer and shorter. He saw a flash of blue paw in his sights, blinked, and his vision was back to normal. That was... really weird.

"Po po, li po?" Caprina was concerned. Slash wouldn't show it, but he was, as well.

"Let loose another barrage of Hidden Power!" Slash called out to Riolu, shaking off the... whatever it was that just happened. Perhaps it was just them being on the same wavelength, or maybe it was related to Riolu's aura abilities.

Ethan was unfazed by the Hyper Voice, figuring that the move would happen sooner rather than later. The Mawile and one of the other Riolu were very low, so the boss wasn't going to risk any chances in knocking out the Pokemon. And then a Max Phantasm, which looked to be an odd choice, but it didn't hit them. They were towering gods, beacons of the battle that showed the path to victory.

Milanor didn't feel the same way and grimaced seeing his comrades fall. Powerless again to stop a friend from being knocked out. Sure, this wasn't a death, but he was still bitter over it. He needed to get stronger... Be stronger. He didn't want to see his friends fall, on his own power. Not as a Lucario, but as a Riolu. This was a critical moment, and two shields stood in his way.

The trainer could sense his Pokemon was willing to take down the remaining shields. That was good, the last cheer was needed for healing. A little bit of chip damage would also go a long way, as it was in these raids. Now it was the time to shatter the last of these protective barriers and open the pathway to divinity.

"Max Kunckle!"

The team's continued assault on the big dog put it on the ropes again, driving it to set up its second round of barriers. Seemingly upset that its aim had led it to focusing fire on only a couple of Pokemon thus far, the Herdier let out a loud shout, accompanied by a strong, widespread, damaging soundwave.

The soundwave blasted into all four of the raiding party Pokemon, and as Slash saw the impact, it happened again. He was definitely looking through his Riolu's eyes. sharing her sense of sight. He could feel the energy fading from the steely ally and the female melee Riolu before he heard them slump onto the ground, unconscious. It would seem that he had the sensory information for all of her senses, including aura, and not just shared sight. That raised even more questions.

From Riolu's perspective, he saw ethereal energy gather around the Herdier, and he blasted at her with a powerful Max move, a Max Phantasm. Slash felt her take the impact, and felt it himself, as well. "AH!" His body was knocked back and to the ground, his vision snapping back out of Riolu's senses.

What was going on? Slash was dumbfounded, still sitting on the ground, eyes his own again. Caprina had fallen from his arms when he was blown back, though she did not seem to have been harmed from the short fall. While normally spoiled and quick to slap Slash when irritated, she did nothing of the like this time. She was genuinely concerned for him, having never seen anything of the like happen to him. That sincerity completely overtook her normal divaish attitude. Instead, she barked at the Herdier, shooting slow moving bubbles out at it, that wouldn't make it anywhere near far enough to even be a minor annoyance to the big dog, even if it hadn't erected its special barriers.

His Riolu turned her head towards him and they locked eyes, before she turned herself back to face the Herdier. All that was needed to be communicated at that moment was with that momentary eye contact. She knew he'd be fine, and he knew she had felt that weird experience as well. She was pretty beat up from that assault

Slash started to rise and dust himself off with his hands. His butt and right elbow had taken most of the impact from his own fall, and they throbbed with pain, but it wasn't serious. He bent back down to pick up his Popplio. He wanted to find out what was happening to him, but he was still in the middle of a battle he needed to win, and that was his priority. He really got fired up from battle, and he could sense the same drive and rush coming from Riolu. No, not Riolu. Minerva. He did not know how he knew it, just like he did not know how he could feel her emotions and fighting spirit, or Caprina's worry and protective instinct, but he just did. He just mentally added it to the growing list of things he would have to think about later instead of dwelling on too hard in the moment.

"Minerva," he called out. He needed to refocus, and seeing her trying out a different move, seeing how she handled it, might be just what he needed. "Let loose with your Gummi Bomb!"

For a second, it was just the two of them against the Herdier. The second Max Flare singed the remaining Riolu, and it was two Dynamaxed Pokemon facing off. The other trainers were busy reviving their Pokemon, and they were the sole hope. It was exhilarating, feeling other's fates in their hands. This too was another form of obtaining the power that he needed so badly. To know the isolation of hope, and power through it. He could feel his Pokemon be uncomfortable with his fervor, but he didn't care.

But as soon as that feeling came, it went. Their previously knocked-out allies rose back up, ready to continue the fight. ALl they had to do was last out this round, not get nuked, and then they could send the mutt packing. And as much as his teammates were there to support them, they needed to help back out in kind. And a nice power boost for the other Force Palm would be more than welcomed.

"Milanor, let's give them a helping hand by using our last max move on Max Knuckle!" Ethan ordered a confidant smile on his face. His Riolu looked down and nodded back, determination filling his eyes and racing through his ashen fur.

let's buff up the other Force Palmer with a Max Knuckle (80 BP off of Force Palm!)

With two allies down for the moment, the two Riolu had their work cut out for themselves. One of the allied trainers tried to help, cheering to motivate Minerva and give her a fresh burst of energy. The massive Riolu on their side rushed forward with a Max Knuckle, the Fighting Max move, again, letting the duo benefit from a physical offense boost. It was for that reason, as well as the reasons of refocusing and testing her capabilities, that Slash had called for the Gummi Bomb. She called upon her inner energy, much the same way as she did when calling upon Hidden Power. Instead of shooting out multiple orbs, however, she instead formed formed her energy into a solid, orange gummi shape. She shot it forward, where it impacted the Herdier, dealing a decent blow.

Well performed. But the Herdier struck back hard. Its teeth glowed with Psychic energy, much like before, and Minerva was the one to take that powerful blow. Had it not been for the assistance of one of his allies cheering for her, that move would have felled her. As it was, she was in an extremely weakened state, and Slash was feeling pretty winded from the strike as well. He was still feeling what Minerva was, it would seem. The Herdier started to channel firepower for its next attack. Thankfully, it was unlikely that both attacks in a row would hit the Minerva, in its unfocused, undisciplined state. One of the great advantages raiders tended to have was this chaotic instinct, seemingly brought upon by the Dynamax eregy that made them rampage in the first place. Then the Max Flare hit her.

Minerva started to fall backwards. Slash's vision got blurry again, a darker blurriness, and he felt himself start to lose his balance. A bright light flashed in his field of vision, the Friend Ball's recall beam pulling the fainted Riolu back into it, to obtain a short rest. A small smile crossed Slash's face, and then he fell to the ground, unconscious.

Caprina jumped from his arms as he fell, landing without harm. While concerned, it seemed she was not overly surprised by this turn of events. She put her flipper on his wrist, to check and see if he still had a pulse. He did, thankfully. She could not say how long he'd be out, though. Hopefully he'd stir soon.

She looked back out at the gathered raiders, still facing down the Herdier. A Riolu and the Mawile were done with their Power Spot aided recovery, and looked ready to get back to the fight, but the Dynamaxed Riolu had taken some damage. Normally, when a Trainer's Pokemon was knocked out during a Max Raid Battle like this, they'd be able to channel their will and fighting spirit into a cheer that would benefit the group. But Slash was in no state to do so. He'd be so frustrated at himself later, especially if this error caused his group to wash out. If they failed here, it was possible this Herdier could cause even more chaos and harm other people and Pokemon before it burned through all the Dynamax energy stored in its body. Her trainer wouldn't want that to happen.

She wasn't really the sort to have much fighting spirit, though. Slash frequently jokingly called her spoiled, or a little princess, but she knew it wasn't entirely untrue. She knew she was the diva sort, and Slash had never tried to change that about her, happy to let her have her way.

Caprina's eyes narrowed with determination. She was selfish, she knew this. But She knew how much Slash loved battling. She sometimes even felt the same rush he did, wrapped in his arms while he led another Pokemon in battle. Maybe she should give it another shot. She knew Slash would always take care of her needs. It was time for her to return the favour and take care of his.

Caprina looked at the Dynamaxed Riolu ally. "Po! Li po!" She barked out. Caprina channeled all her will, all her fighting spirit, all her love for Slash into the cheer, filled with a drive to help revitalise that Riolu.
