    Default Re: Kris vs Gold: A Tale of War

    “Bay Bayleef Bay!” Bayleef called, interrupting their stare-off.

    “You want to go up against Croconaw?” Kris asked, and Bayleef nodded happily, leaping forwards towards the water’s edge. Croconaw tried glaring back at the four legged grass type, but it simply looked comical thanks to his crossed eyes.

    “Seed Bomb!” Kris shouted in delight. Bayleef’s neck leaves all began to glow, beginning to form into the large, explosive seed. Gold simply rolled his eyes and smirked.

    “You really think I’m going to just let this happen?” He jeered, and Croconaw was quickly brought back. “Ariados, take her down!” Kris and Bayleef sighed as the purple, poisonous spider landed on the field. Ariados clicked his fangs and scuttled around Gold, leaving six different footprints in the ground.

    “How are you going to handle this?” Gold jeered. Bayleef just looked around at Kris and nodded.

    “I think I’m going to have to, sadly, take the cowards way out like you.” Kris said with a sweet smile, and Bayleef laughed as she ran back to Kris’ side. “Magcargo, let’s see how you do!” Her next PokeBall burst open onto the field, and Ariados hissed and backed away as a grey, glowing shell landed on the field.

    “Maaaagcaaargoooo.” Magcargo said slowly, and then flinched as the rain battered him. Gold, who had looked worried for a second, noticed this and smiled gleefully.

    “It’s weak to rain, so it’s fire type attacks won’t do as much!” He said, and Ariados moved forwards at this. “Let’s go in with a Dig!”

    “Flamethrower, quickly!” Kris shouted, though she knew they had no shot. Magcargo opened his mouth, but by the time he had fired the powerful jet Ariados had already scooped away sand and dived down beneath them.

    “Leef Ba!” Bayleef huffed, and Magcargo nodded in agreement.

    “Don’t worry, he can’t stop us!” Kris said with forced enthusiasm. “Duck inside your shell and roll onto the top. Wait until Ariados hits you to attack.” Magcargo nodded and his lava-like body disappeared inside the tough shell. He rolled backwards just as the sand began to tremble, and Kris crossed her fingers nervously.

    “ARIA!” Ariados cried as he burst through the sand, sending both chunks of earth and Magcargo flying into the air.

    “LAVA PLUME!” Kris shouted before jumping in front of Bayleef for protection. Flaming hot lava sprayed out of Magcargo’s shell, scattering across the field like he was fiery sprinkler. Ariados attempted to run away from the attack, but was completely covered in the lava.

    “DOS, DOS!” He cried, his body erupting into flames. Magcargo fell back towards the beach, bouncing on top of Ariados before rolling over some more of the lava. Kris was smiled happily, while Gold growled as Ariados stumbled across the field, still covered in the lava. The rain was washing most of it away, but Ariados would still be burnt.

    “Now, why don’t we try using a good old AncientPower?” Kris called.

    “Some dust balls won’t stop us! Night Shade, now!” Gold ordered. As Magcargo began to rise the sand together into balls, Ariados pointed his horn, which was still lava covered, and fired a black beam. It hit Magcargo between the eyes, making him winch and pain and slid backwards.

    “CAAR!” He yelled, and suddenly the sandy AncientPower shot towards Ariados. The spider turned and tried scuttling away, but the lava that remained was weighing him down, and the rain had turned the sand wet. His long, striped legs sunk in, and Ariados was unable to pull his leg out.

    “DOOOS!” He shouted, and was suddenly blasted by the rocks. Gold looked pained as Ariados crashed into the inners of the cave, the force of the attack clearly knocking him out. But two moves, one of which would have been weakened by the rain, yet Ariados had still been easily defeated. Had Gold made bad choices with his team?
    That couldn’t be it…. He thought. I just need to train them harder, that’s all. With that thought in mind, he silently brought his second fainted Pokemon back, and then went to choose which one he’d send out next. Croconaw would be a wise option, but Kris would simply switch Magcargo out again. He had to do something to trick her, lead her down a false path.

    “Scizor, out you come!” Kris, Bayleef and Magcargo all froze as the ball soared through the air, releasing the metallic bug type. And then they all began laughing.

    “Scizor is four times weak to fire, how is that smart?” Kris laughed, leaning on Bayleef for support. Scizor narrowed his eyes, angry at being smirked at. He looked back at Gold, ready to fight, and the trainer nodded.

    “Move to the cave mouth and then use Vacuum Wave!” He instructed. Magcargo and Kris were still laughing, and were only half watching as Scizor moved swiftly yet elegantly towards the cave mouth. Magcargo stopped laughing just as he realised what was about to happen.

    “ZOOOR!” Scizor shouted, his right claw spinning around and gathering energy. He punched out, sending an attack of pure vacuum energy blasted towards Magcargo. Kris gasped as Magcargo was hit right in the shell, and was sent spiralling straight towards the water.

    “MAAAAAG!” He yelled, about to crash straight into the choppy ocean.

    “Return!” Kris yelled, and Magcargo turned into energy just before he crashed onto the waters. Scizor smiled happily as Kris and Bayleef just stood there in silence, the only sound being that of the whistling wind moving past them.

    “Well, that was enlightening.” Kris mumbled, and Gold simply smirked, his smart look being the perfect torture for Kris. She would just have to see if she could keep up her current lead and do her best not to fall to him.

    “Noctowl, I need you again!” She said, and once again the auburn bird formed in the air, floating a few feet about Scizor. Noctowl looked in discomfort as the rain struck her, making her cold and ruining her beautiful weathers.

    “Your flying friend isn’t going to save you now!” Gold sneered. “Try and hit her with a Bullet Punch!”

    “Dive down and use Take Down!” Kris commanded. Scizor punched with his left claw this time, which had briefly glowed silver. Metallic energy, shaped like a bullet, soared towards Noctowl, but the psychic bird dived down at just the right moment, causing the attack to miss.

    “Sciz!” Scizor cursed, and he raised his claws up to defend himself. Noctowl sped down and smashed into the steel type’s claws with enough force to push him backwards, but not enough to do as much. Kris sighed and thought of what to do: she remembered how when she battled Leaf she had used contact moves at the wrong time. If she tried another Take Down it would just cause more damage for Noctowl. As long as she remained airborne, Scizor couldn’t possibly attack.
    “Alright, use an Air Slash now!”

    “Deflect it with your normal Slash!” Gold cried. Noctowl began spinning around to collect the air, and Scizor began beating his wings as furiously as possible as they turned white. He then smashed a foot into the ground, using enough force to send him up into the sky.

    “Owl!” Noctowl shouted as she threw the ball of wind towards Scizor. The Pincer Pokemon had been flying too low, and didn’t realised he was exposed until the last moment. The attack burst across his wings, the air blasting him straight the stormy sky. Gold gasped and pulled his ball out, ready to bring him back like Kris had done. However Scizor smashed into part of the frozen wave, which was still floating along the ocean. Gold punched the air in delight as Scizor stopped just in time from falling off.

    “This will be interesting….” Kris said, as Noctowl floated over the beach and Scizor banged his claws against the ice. “Charge for a Sky Attack.”

    “Fire a Vacuum Wave!” Gold ordered. Scizor quickly fired the powerful force of vacuum, which blasted some of the ice and skidded across the water. However, it wasn’t enough to reach Noctowl, who floated backwards as she glowed white with energy. The ice Scizor was on was still floating, moving further towards the rocks that separate the Pokemon habitats from the wide ocean. It was going to be a dramatic fight to see who would win.

    “Slash her when she comes near!” Gold ordered. Scizor’s wings turned a blinding silver, and he began jumping across ice at the same time Noctowl sped forwards. It was like two white missiles were heading straight towards each other, and everyone tensed up, waiting for the head on collision.

    “NOOOOOOCT!”

    “SCIZOOOOOR!” The two collided head on: Scizor’s wings failed to touch Noctowl, who used her powerful Sky Attack to force Scizor flying backwards. As Scizor fell through the air, she drove straight into his metallic chest. Scizor smashed against the ice, being pushed by Noctowl and skidding on the wet and slippery surface, and completed obliterated the piece he had landed on. A shower of ice rose up and sprayed over Noctowl, who landed perfectly despite the ice.

    “Woot, great job Noctowl!” Kris cheered, and gave Bayleef a big hug. Noctowl tweeted, her head suddenly glowing pink. She pushed the piece of ice Scizor was balancing on towards the beach, allowing him to be in range for the PokeBall.

    “Thanks, I guess….” Gold muttered, and quickly brought Scizor back. “Too bad I’m going to have to destroy you: Houndour, let’s try this again!” Kris, Bayleef and Noctowl stopped rejoicing as Houndour was once again sent onto the field, standing proudly and loyally alongside Gold. Kris didn’t have a proper counter for Houndour, but Noctowl had just proven her great strength so she would have to do.

    “Alright then, use Take Down and push him towards the ocean!” Kris ordered. Noctowl swooped forwards and began glowing, but Gold simply smiled.

    “Jump and use Bite, aim for her wings!” He shouted. Houndour began sprinting forwards at an alarming speed, his teeth bared and looked simply vicious. Noctowl had to keep her wings out in order to cause maximum damage, so she and Kris simply hoped that the attack would deflect Houndour.

    It didn’t.

    “HOOOUUUN!” The demonic fire type shouted, and he jumped up and clamped his teeth down onto Noctowl’s left wing. Houndour then dragged her down with him, the white energy disappearing instantly, and tossed her through the sand.

    “Nooct!” Noctowl wailed as she rolled along the beach, landing close to Kris’ feet, who instantly got down on her knees.

    “Are you alright?” Kris asked nervously. Noctowl nodded, too weak to talk. “Do you want to continue?” Noctowl nodded again, and she slowly got up onto her talons. Gold and Houndour just smirked, and dark dog growled and bared his teeth. “You can show them, use Air Slash!”
    “Blast her backwards with Heat Wave!” Gold shouted. The grey parts of Houndour suddenly glowed a fiery orange, and he opened his mouth
    before Noctowl could even begin to rise into the air. Despite the ra
    in that was pouring down, the attack still felt hot and looked strong.

    “DOOOOUUUUR!” Houndour roared, and a blast of flaming energy was sent soaring across the field. The large blast of heat hit Noctowl in the chest, and Kris and Bayleef yelped and leapt out of the way as Noctowl zoomed past. She smashed into a rock behind them, sending dust into the air. There was no denying she had fainted, and her slightly smoking body landed in an unconscious heap behind them.

    “Good game.” Kris said, and she quickly brought Noctowl back. Gold gave Houndour a pat on the head as Kris swapped PokeBalls: there was no time to beat around the bush, it was important for both of them to keep the battle going. Both of them wanted to see if they could defeat the other, and there was even more tension in the air than normal. The rain and wind began to pick up, making Houndour wince, and Kris just winked.

    “You should know to use the weather to your advantage.” She called out, confusing Gold. With a triumphant smile, Kris sent out her fifth Pokemon.

    Default Re: Kris vs Gold: A Tale of War

    The energy formed into a Pokemon Gold didn’t recognise: it was shaped like a tall human, but with a long neck and short arms. It was yellow with a white belly and black stripes on its neck, ears and long tail. There was a red ball on the end of her tail, with a matching coloured gem-like object on her head.

    “Ampha Roooooos!” The Pokemon said, sending sparks from the bulb on her tail.

    “This is Ampharos, Flaafy’s evolved form.” Kris explained, and Ampharos happily stepped forwards, glaring down at Houndour. Gold could sense the power coming from her, and remembered how Flaafy had nearly blown up the lighthouse observation deck.

    “You don’t scare us!” He said in an unconvincing tone, and Houndour nervously nodded as well. “Fire Fang, let’s go!”

    “Charge!” Kris shouted, and then exchanged nervous looks with Bayleef. Despite her elation about bringing this powerful evolved Pokemon out, Kris was secretly worried. Flaaffy had still been having trouble with using electric type attacks, only managing half of her full strength. Evolution had failed to cure this, and they had spent countless hours trying to get Ampharos to fire at Noctowl in the air, no attacks hitting. Kris hoped that the rain that was falling would help with the attacks.

    “Phaaaaa!” Ampharos baaed, and she glowed yellow all over as she began absorbing her electrical energy in. Houndour was rushing forwards, squelching through the wet sand, and leapt up with a mouth full of fire. The rain washed some of it away, but Ampharos couldn’t protect herself as Houndour bit down on her right arm.

    “Blast him off with a Thunderbolt!”

    “Clamp down harder with Bite!” Houndour remained clinging to Ampharos’ arm, this time with the power of darkness on his side. Ampharos was still glowing yellow, and she mustered all her energy towards her arm, which began crackling.

    “PHAAAAROOOOS!” She shouted dramatically, and Gold looked scared. However, Houndour was only slightly blasted backwards, rolling through the sand once before landing on his feet half a metre away. Gold raised an eyebrow, and then he began laughing. Houndour followed his lead, and Ampharos turned sadly away from their jeering.

    “Don’t take what they say into account Ampharos!” Kris called, hiding her disappointment at the electrical moves failing again. Ampharos nodded and slowly turned back, still being laughed at. “Brick Break him now!”

    “Ampharos Amph!” Ampharos nodded, and she ran forwards with the red jewel on her tail glowing white. Gold and Houndour were too busy laughing to notice, similar to what happened with Scizor and Magcargo, and it wasn’t until the last second that they noticed something was wrong.

    “Hound!” Houndour gasped as Ampharos spun, her tail smashing into his head with a painful force. Gold ducked down as Houndour flew and smashed into a rock behind him, slipping down the slippery surface. He slowly got up, legs wobbling and looking rather sore.

    “Fight back with a Dark Pulse to keep her at bay!” Gold yelled. Houndour nodded and moved slowly forwards. His feet glowed a brilliant shade of black that screamed dark, and then he smashed his front paws into the ground. Purple-black energy was fired out like a forcefield, nearly blasting Ampharos off her feet.

    “Bay!” Bayleef gasped, jumping behind Kris to avoid the energy.

    “How to counter this….” Kris thought. She had been using special moves to counter Gold’s physically attack Pokemon. It seemed that she was going to have try something physical in order to win. “Ampharos, run forwards and use Thunderbolt, but touch him in order to do it!” Ampharos nodded cautiously, and she began running across the dark-type energy. Her force was able to easily diminish the Dark Pulse, and Houndour was left shocked as Ampharos appeared in front of him.

    “Pharos!” She said and touched him with her tail. There was a small bolt of electricity that was enough to blast Houndour backwards. For a moment it looked like Houndour would survive, his legs wobbling furiously but remaining up.

    “Houndour Dour.” He mumbled, and then slumped forwards besides Gold. The teenager wordlessly brought Houndour back, and quickly swapped PokeBalls. Ampharos was making her way back towards Kris, unaware that Gold was readying his next Pokemon already.

    “Ursaring, come out and use Ice Punch!” Gold yelled and threw the ball onto the field. A large brown Pokemon rose up as the energy formed together. Kris knew it was Teddiursa’s evolved form, and it had lost all its cuteness: he was taller than Ampharos, with an angry, snarling face and bigger and sharper claws.

    “URSAAAA!” He roared, and his left fist turned an icy blue. Ampharos turned around at the roar and gasped.

    “FIRE PUNCH!” Kris screamed. Ampharos’ right fist became engulfed in fire but it was too late: Ursaring punched her in the head, and the ice spread across her body. Ampharos was instantly frozen, covered in a thin layer of ice.

    “Knock her out with Strength, now!” Gold yelled. Kris and Bayleef could only watch in horror as Ursaring dimly glowed white and grabbed Ampharos, throwing her with all his might into the cave wall. The Light Pokemon smashed against the surface, the ice over her body shattering instantly. Ampharos slumped against the wet sand, unconscious. Kris was shocked, and quickly turned towards Gold who was smiling at Ursaring.

    “Dirty and underhanded!” Kris shrieked. “You could have waited for Ampharos to get back around!”

    “Not my fault if your Pokemon are all slow.” Gold sneered, and Ursaring chuckled. Kris and Bayleef just glared at them as Ampharos was brought back. Kris only had three Pokemon left: Bayleef, Magcargo and one Gold hadn’t seen yet, so she still had the advantage over his two.

    “Magcargo, out you come!” Kris shouted. The tough shelled fire type landed on the field, looking up at the tall figure that was Ursaring, who growled down at him. The rain was falling more heavily now, with more lightning flashing overhead. Magcargo was being battered, his body looking like it was being washed away, and Kris felt nervous.

    “Use AncientPower, your fire attacks can’t do much!” She ordered. Magcargo nodded and his eyes glowed, sand rising up to form into rocks. But Gold simply sighed and rolled his eyes in a mocking way, and pulled two PokeBall’s out.

    “Ursaring, take a short break. Croconaw, time for you again!” Ursaring disappeared just as the AncientPower finished forming, only for Croconaw to land back on the field, chomping his jaw again. The rocks smashed into him but did little, other then covering him with sand.

    “You need to think like I do, Kris, if you want to defeat me.” Gold jeered. “Surf, now!” Kris was annoyed about Gold’s continuos mocking, but she had to keep going.

    “Recover, quickly!” She shouted, hoping desperately that this would save Magcargo from defeat. Croconaw ran towards the water’s edge, leaping onto the water as it began to rise up, turning into yet another gigantic wave.

    “Maaaag!” Magcargo wailed, and he ducked inside his shell. The grey shell glowed a brilliant white as Magcargo began to recover, but the rain was still battering him as well as powering up the Surf.

    “NAW!” Croconaw yelled, and the wave began to crash down. Kris and Bayleef shielded themselves as the powerful wave hit Magcargo right in the shell. It was flipped over and sent crashing into the cave, still being hit by the rest of the Surf. Kris was already soaking wet, but the Surf got into he shoes and she cursed, making Gold laughed. The water retreated back towards the water, leaving Croconaw standing proudly by the shell: Magcargo’s lava-like body was oozing out of the shell like it was bleeding, clearly unconscious.

    “Good work.” Kris sighed, bringing Magcargo back. Gold and Croconaw just beamed at each other as Kris pulled her last PokeBall out. Gold’s beam turned to a frown as he realised something: Kris did have one full health Pokemon left, and Bayleef hadn’t battled that much. Kris could see their nervous faces and smiled.

    “Miltank, show them what your made of!” Kris cried, and threw her final PokeBall onto the field. With a shower of stars and burst of light, Miltank landed spectacularly onto the field, her shiny coat sparkling even in the rain.

    “Mil Mil!” She called, and stood determinedly in front of Kris. Croconaw took a step backwards, and Gold knew he had a right to be worried: Miltank were capable of learning many different moves, and he remembered she knew ThunderPunch.

    “Body Slam to start off with!” Kris commanded.

    “I have no choice: Croconaw, switch out!” Gold yelled, and he threw Ursaring’s PokeBall onto the field before Croconaw had even run to his side. Ursaring formed again, roaring and yelling, but was taken off guard completely as Miltank soared towards him.

    “TAAAAANK!” She mooed, and drove Ursaring into the ground. Despite the major height difference, Miltank was very heavy and was able to pack a punch.

    “Ring Ursa Saring!” Ursaring moaned as they slid through the sand. Miltank smiled and climbed off, and Ursaring tried to stand up but seized up: his body suddenly cackled with electricity.

    “He’s been paralysed!” Gold said happily. Kris was surprised at Gold’s happy tone, and Bayleef and Miltank exchanged curious looks as well. “Use Ice Punch now Ursaring!”

    “Try another Body Slam, that seemed to work well!” Kris called. Miltank nodded and leapt upwards again, just as Ursaring finally stood up. Miltank came flying towards the Hibernator Pokemon as he struggled to move. But just as Miltank was about to land Ursaring roared and burst into what looked like yellow energy. His fist still glowed icy blue, but everyone except Gold was taken aback.

    “URSAAAAAA!” He roared and punched Miltank before she could land on him. Miltank was blasted backwards with a powerful force, rolling through the sand.

    “Ursaring’s ability is Guts,” Gold explained as Miltank came to a stop. “His attack gets boosted when he is poisoned, burnt or paralysed. And let’s just show off his true power with a Slash!” Kris was now worried: Slash could cause critical damage, and that could mean the end for Miltank.

    “Blast him away with Surf, but stay where you are!” Kris shouted. She could see what Gold who was doing: he was weakening her Pokemon, preventing them from doing any fancy moves. Miltank painfully raised a hand, her eyes glowing a mysterious blue. As Ursaring made his way slowly forwards, glowing yellow with extending claws, a large wave suddenly shot forwards, growing as it was hit by the rain. Ursaring was moving too slowly thanks to the paralysis and couldn’t afford the wave in time, as was sent crashing against the cave wall.

    “URSA!” He roared and collapsed onto his knees.

    “Use another Slash, quickly!” Gold shouted. Kris and Bayleef exchanged nervous looks: this could be in the end. Miltank stood up, having recovered enough to stand properly. Ursaring was jogging forwards, looking like some strange electrical explosion. His claws were raised, ready to come down.

    “FOCUS BLAST!” Kris yelled with a smile. Gold gasped: Kris had been tricking him all along. Miltank smiled as her tailed suddenly glowed a powerful red. She jumped up and swung around, just as Ursaring came closer.

    “MIIIIIIIL!” She yelled and smashed her tail into the ring on Ursaring’s chest, but only a second after Ursraing slashed his claws down her back. There was a bright explosion that looked like lightning, and Ursaring was sent flying backwards with a powerful force. He hit a rock so hard it was completely obliterated, and Gold withdrew his unconscious body before it tumbled into the ocean.

    “Great job Miltank!” Kris shouted, and Miltank smiled. However, as she turned around to hug her trainer, Miltank’s legs suddenly buckled in. Gold turned around excitedly as Miltank landed face first in the sand, clearly unconscious. Kris and Bayleef exchanged shocked looks, while Gold looked rather ecstatic: they were both down to their final Pokemon.

    “Nice job Miltank.” Kris whispered and brought her back: the last minute Slash had been the end of her thanks to Ursaring’s power boost. Now it was back to the basics: Bayleef vs Croconaw. Bayleef had a clear advantage, but Croconaw had the rain on his side as well as Ice Fang.

    “Knock him dead.” Kris whispered.

    “Bay Bay!” Bayleef answered, and stepped forwards, taking Miltank’s place.

    “You can win this!” Gold said to Croconaw.

    “Croco Croc Naw!” The Big Jaw Pokemon replied, and he stepped forwards to face Bayleef. The wind whistled, thunder sounded in the distance, but the two trainers and their starters ignored this.

    It was time for the final round.

    Default Re: Kris vs Gold: A Tale of War

    *This part contains foul langauge near the end that may offend some people*



    “There isn’t way you can win this one Ethan, you might as well forfeit.” Kris jeered. Gold’s eyes narrowed, and he clenched his fists as if he was going to battle himself. He had been training long and hard for this battle, and had come far only to be close to failure. Kris was really getting on his nerves, so it was time for him to play dirty.

    “I wouldn’t think so, I’m pretty sure Croconaw’s Surf could hit you with the force of a car!” Gold jeered, his eyebrows raised. Kris’ eyes bulged, a sudden pain in her heart rising up.

    Is he seriously mocking Ruby...... how could he…..

    “What’s the matter, Krystal?” Gold sneered. “Persian got your daddy? Oops, I meant tongue… but speaking on your elusive father, have you actually managed to find him lately?” Kris’ knees began to shake, tears building up in her eyes. “I think I know why he ran away: he must have realised what a total cow his daughter would be and decided to go live with a nicer, kinder, richer family. That makes sense, doesn’t-”

    “SHUT UP YOUR LITTLE PRICK, JUST SHUT UP!” Kris roared, and they all fell silent. Gold just smiled: Kris was always a little emotional, as she had shown in Ecruteak, and he planned on using her pain to his advantage.

    “Ice Fang.” He whispered. Croconaw was staring at Gold, looking rather surprised. “I said Ice Fang, move!” Croconaw nodded and raced forwards. Kris didn’t say anything, but Bayleef fired a Magical Leaf in order to blast Croconaw backwards.

    “See, if your Pokemon know your scum.” Kris hissed, wiping a tear away from her eyes.

    “Hey, I thought you wanted to find your father, I was just giving the most logical explanation!” Gold laughed.

    “My father DIED you dickhead!” Kris shouted, and Gold froze. “Do you think I decided to spend two weeks on a beach because I’m HAPPY!” Bayleef and Croconaw looked away from each other, the tension building between their trainers getting too much.

    “I-I-I’m sorry….”

    “No your not, your guilty!” Kris shrieked, the tears now boring down. “Headbutt, blast that Pokemon backwards!”

    “Use Crunch, and I’m not guilty, I am sorry!” Gold insisted as the two Pokemon ran forwards.

    “Bullshit!” Kris hissed. “Why didn’t you speak to your parents, my mum went to see your mother. Have they decided you’re too big of a dick to deal with?” Gold was going to say something, but he realised it would seem hypocritical and simply watched as Bayleef and Croconaw bounced back from each other.

    “Another thing: how dare you make a remark about Ruby!” Kris hissed, and Bayleef nodded. Gold looked confused, but then it quickly came back to her.

    “Oh right, that girl who died.”

    “SHE DIED BECAUSE YOU CHASED US!” Kris bellowed. Croconaw turned to stare at Gold, who was going red in his rage.

    “I remember what happened!” Gold yelled. “Don’t you remember what happened the day before that picnic? At the school pool, remember?” Kris was taken aback, but she quickly tried to recall the event….. She could remember their class had been playing by the pool. Something had happened with Gold…..

    “Did she…. Push you into the pool?” Kris asked, though she was getting annoyed that things had been turned on her. Gold nodded gravely, and he stared at the ocean angrily as if it had too insulted him.

    “I remember that I had teased her about the one-piece bathing thing she was wearing, as it was slightly torn and a weird colour.” Gold reminisced, the battle remaining forgotten. “She got angry at me and pushed me into the water….. I remembered that my watch got caught on something at the bottom of the pool…. I couldn’t come up…. I remember the water rushing down my throat, getting in my eyes, up my nose…. It was awful….”

    “Was that your reason for chasing after us?” Kris asked, and Gold nodded. “Was that your reason for chasing her across the road, into the path of the car?”

    “Oh come on, it didn’t happen like that!” Gold shouted.

    “I WAS THERE!” Kris shouted. “I saw what happened, so don’t try and cover it up, Hartley! It was your fault she died, and I hate you for that! You are an arrogant, selfish pig! You complain about having so much money and wanting to be your own person, but your swagger, the way you walk and talk, it just proves how much of a jerk you are! You did it even we were kids, waltzing around New Bark like you fucking owned the place!”

    “You’re just jealous, because I’m wealthy and you’re poor, irritating and unloved!” Gold shouted back. The two fell silent, but the tension between them was as thick as any of the rocks around them. Bayleef and Croconaw stood there, unsure what to say or do.

    “SEED BOMB!” Kris screamed, her voice hoarse.

    “ICE FANG!” Gold bellowed. Bayleef remained where she was, the seeds forming around her neck. Croconaw ran forwards, his mouth full of ice. Both Pokemon wanted to end the battle, separate their trainers from one another. Croconaw jumped upwards, diving down with his mouth open wide.

    “BAAAAAY!” Bayleef shouted, and the powerful seed was sent flying straight towards Croconaw’s open mouth before it had even finished forming. Gold and Kris showed no emotion aside from mutual anger as the Seed Bomb landed in between Croconaw’s teeth. There was a bright green explosion, followed by the sound of thunder and a flash of lightning overhead that blinded them all. Kris shielded her eyes, but couldn’t stop herself from being hit by Bayleef, who had been forced backwards by the explosion.

    “Are you alright?” Kris asked nervously, blinking to get her sight back. Bayleef nodded, though she was covered in sand and had a graze on her head. She looked back towards the field, and Kris followed, anxious to see the outcome. Gold was staring down at his feet, where Croconaw’s unconscious body lay. There was smoking rising from his mouth, the Seed Bomb clearly having done a lot of damage. They all stared at Croconaw for a few moments, allowing the rain and wind to batter them, listening to the distant sounds of thunder.

    “Good job Bayleef.” Kris whispered, and gave her a gentle hug as she gave her a Full Restore. She was pleased she had won, but it felt like a bitter victory: Gold had heavily insulted her, and the two had been forced to face the reasons why they loathed each other so much. Kris despised Gold over what happened to Ruby, the fact he always mocked her and rubbed his wealth in her face, while Gold disliked her simply because she was poor and he had been pushed in a pool.

    “Bayleef Bay Bay!” Bayleef said happily as she finished drinking the Full Restore. Kris smiled and gave her a hug, but froze as she was suddenly hit with white light. Gold froze what he was doing, and stared over at Kris and Bayleef. Kris stepped backwards, watching in awe as Bayleef began to grow taller and wider, her legs and waist getting bigger. The leaves around her neck smoothed out, while her head leaf retracted. The light disappeared, and Kris gasped as a Meganium stood in Bayleef’s place, with beautiful pink and white flowers around her neck and two lime green antennae.

    “Meganium Mega Mega!” Meganium called, and Kris squealed and gave her a hug.

    “Oh my gosh, congratulations!” She wailed, unable to contain her excitement. The two danced around, hugging and cheering in celebration, ignoring the rain battering them. Gold simply made a tutting noise and went back to Croconaw. Kris and Meganium, Gold’s poisonous attitude ruining their fun.

    “You know what, I plan to be in the Mahogany Town/Mt Mortar area in one month.” Kris said, but Gold ignored her as he fed a Max Revive to Croconaw. “If you are there at the same time, then I plan on challenging you to a three on three battle. If you aren’t there, my suspicions will be confirmed.” Kris held onto one of Meganium’s new neck flowers, wiping tears away with the other hand, and began walking towards the cave. Gold simply looked away, waiting for Croconaw to wake up. He didn’t say a word, and Kris sighed and walked briskly into the cave. She began walking determinedly, not pausing for a second.

    “Nium Mega Megani!” Meganium cried, wondering what they were speeding up. Kris stopped and looked back, making sure that the entrance was far out of sight. She then winked at Meganium and reached into her pocket: she pulled out the Soul Dew, which was glowing a bright blue.

    “I felt this glow during the battle. It hadn’t glowed since we first came to this beach, so I thought it might mean something!” Kris explained. The cave was being lit up by the blue glow, showing a high ceiling dripping with water and rocky walls on all sides. The distant sound of a waterfall was echoing around them, and Kris and Meganium just stared around at the majestic beauty.

    Suddenly, there was the sound of thundering rocks. The two twirled around, and they what looked like a stone archway up ahead, leading to another part of the cave. It was down a wet slope, so Kris and Meganium moved cautiously forwards as more rocks sounded over the top of the waterfall. The Soul Dew was glowing more and more frequently, turning into a flashing light.

    “The Pokemon must be causing the noise!” Kris whispered excitedly, and Meganium nodded happily. They moved slowly down the slope, soon reaching the bottom with a loud splash: the path ahead was flooded.
    “Let’s just move cautiously…” Kris said, and she pulled a purple PokeBall out of her bag: it was a Master Ball, and was the most powerful PokeBall created. Kris and Meganium splashed through the water, the Soul Dew glowing more powerful than ever. They slowly entered the new section and froze.

    The whole section was lit up by a brilliant blue light. An elegant stone path lead forwards, towards what looked like a natural observation deck. A large platform stood in the middle, but it was covered in black burns. The light was coming from a magnificent waterfall: it stretched high out of sight, and Kris was certain that it must be touching the sky. The water was a magnificent clear blue, and the sound it created as it crashed beautifully into a large pool was very relaxing, making all thoughts of the previous battle drift away.

    “Meganium Ium Gani,” Meganium whispered, and she gestured behind the waterfall. A silhouetted figure was moving behind the curtain of water: it had to be the legendary Pokemon as its shape wasn’t human. The creature was floating, tossing rocks against the alcove behind the waterfall. The Soul Dew was now shining so brightly that Kris was blinded, but she held onto it behind her back, just to show it to the Pokemon. Kris stared at the silhouette: the rest of her team had fainted, but she had the Soul Dew and a fully evolved starter on her side.

    “Come on Meganium we can do this!” Kris whispered, and the two girls walked determinedly forwards, just as the figure turned around to face them…..

    The next part will be set in Mahogany Town: will Gold arrive for their battle? Will Kris have caught a legendary, and which of the duo will it bE?

    I'm always interested to hear feedback: did you like this story, this part, this series? Have your thoughts changed on Kris or Gold after their emotional argument? Did you enjoy the stroy beginning with Gold? Feel free to share your views

    Allright, first up, I think this battle was amazing. A few spacing/grammar issues here and there, but I'm not commenting on those because there were only a couple. Instead, I'm saying this:
    That was the most DAMN EPIC BATTLE yet!!!!!!! I loved character development here, the fact is that I sympathize with Gold even more. I mean, Ruby pushed him, and he almost drowned. We simply chased her in a game of tag, and she got hit by a car. He didn't know the car was there, it wasn't his fault. It was the fault of the person who ran her over at that speed.
    I want Croconaw to evolve. It was a good battle, and I can't believe Kris is gonna get the legendary! I just hope Gold wins the next battle.
    Very well done!

    Gold was being melodramatic: he didn't really drown, he mainly got embarassed by being pushed by a girl and decided to fight back. He was mainly looking for a way to counter Kris' argument. Kris has little memory of the incident, so that's why she believed what he said at the time. In the forementioned Homecoming story, she does remember what really happened and she remembers something else from the hit and run that she had been surpressing all this time, leading to yet another confrontation. I still can't believe you people don't like Kris, but *sighs* I guess I can't change all your minds :P I'm glad you liked the battle, I was trying to make it the most epic :D Gold has done nothing to deserve getting a legendary of such power, grace and heart of the Lati's.

    I think the main reason GOld appeals to me is simply because everyone seems to hate him. I mean, Hanoko got mad at him without much reason, and in the lighthouse, Kris really got upset over him being there. He put up with her always winning, and then he wins a few times and she g ets mad. It makes her come across as a bit of a sore loser, if you see what I mean. For that matter, I don't think Kris has done nearly enough...she's further than Gold, but still. Do you plan to have Gold acquire a legendary in the future? Are you going to introduce any Unov pokemon? I'm just thinking...well, it was a goo chapter! I', putting my money on Latias.

    Hmmmm.... I can see your point there. Hanoko is an old women, she doesn't need a reason to get angry. Kris would have explaiend what happened between them and Ruby, so she followed her granddaughter. And I didn't intend for Kris to come across as a sore loser, she was just disappointed. And Gold doesn't take his losses. It's annoying when I know what's going to happen, yet I can explain these things yet without causing major spoilers :P But it was touched upon at the beginning with how he thought about how he had been training specifically to beat Kris. And he did get quite moody at the end of this battle, and Goldenrod Underground.
    The one thing I want is for them to be seen on an even scale: I think that some people like Gold too much to read between the lines, and it just makes me doubt my writing abilities a bit.

    No, your writing is fine! I just think that Kris is maybe...ah trying to overcompensate for everything, be better than Gold at everything. It's just something to be aware of.

    They are both striving to beat the other: Kris mainly as she does see him as her biggest threat towards winning the Johto League. She does have some respect for his battling style. Gold, however, is more annoyed about being defeated in the first few battles, so he constantly wants to prove he is better than her.

    Personally, I charaters, but I like Kris just a bit more than gold, mainly because I know kinda what Kris feels.

    Ace: I'm glad to see that people can connect with her, and I'm sorry if something bad happened in your life that's similar to her.
    Cat: Yes, yes it was :P

    I hope to actually have a new part out soon due to the speed Im going at! :D

    Finally caught up.

    Kirs and Gold both got so much more depth, and I prefer Kris, don't worry. It's also amazing how you managed to give her a shiny and maybe a Legendary, yet she still doesn't seem "special" in many way. Sure, she has a Pokédex, but she is far from perfect.

    The interactions between the two are both very good and childish. I did get the feeling that they were both very immature, but that might be because they are 12...

    Hanoko is by far my favourite character, she is amazing in every way. I absolutely love how you portrayed her character as the defensive grumpy grandmother. It might also be because she reminds of my own grandmother.

    The plot is progressing nicely, and I like how Kris is slowly getting side tracked from her Badge quest. The personal storyline felt a little bit heavy (on the characters), which is also very good.

    There were a few occasional mistakes, but they don't really hinder the story at all, as this is a "page turner". There were a few elements that seemed kind of odd about Gold, but I guess they just play towards his character, such as not recognising Ampharos even though Amphy was at the lighthouse, though I don't recall him seeing the Pokémon.

    All in all, amazing story, keep it up.

    Im glad you enjoyed it :D

    I never really intended for Kris to be unique or special, as you put it, in any way. I think that a trainer is allowed to be talented, good at battling and get valuable Pokemon without being part of some great prophecy or something :P I kept Kris' character down to her past and goals, and kept the more out there characters to things like Galactic (e.g. Vanessa)

    Yes, they are 12 and 13, so that's why they arguments are usually a bit silly :P Swearing and such is reserved for their more intense arguments, but they can be (mainly Gold) immature at times.

    Hanoko is one of my favourite adult characters I created :D I thought Kris needed some sort of travelling companion, and Hanoko fills in the sort of "Brock" void of giving a voice in the sidelines.

    Yes, I do choose not to focus on badges as much with my stories, which is ironic as they are usually journey fics :P I find that the badges make things too much like the games in that they are the necessary challenge to complete that gets in the way more. I also find the gyms too easy in the games and prefer my characters to face better challenges. I prefer original plots or expanding on villianous plots more than focusing on the gyms.

    Gold is a bit odd, and we will see more of that in the large character development story that is Homecoming. We do see his family, including Chantelle, and their large mansion. I don't want people to feel as sorry for Gold, but we see a little of why he acts.

    Thanks a lot, I'm very glad you liked it :D
