    Concore ~ You listened to the girls sorrowful story as she tried to stop her tears to no avail. You wracked your brain for information on the Pokemon she mentioned, a Wynaut you had heard of them before. Suddenly as it hits you, you reminisce on the memory smiling at the good times you had. Brought back to reality by the girl’s confused look you smile gently at her and give a possible explanation for Wynaut’s disappearance relating back to experiences you had had with your own Psychic Pokemon. Caitlin sniffed and dried her tears on the sleeve of her top as she contemplated your words.

    “You really think that could be what happened?” she asked with a little hope lining her tone of voice. You nod your head and she perks up a little. “Maybe … maybe Crystal got lost when she went for a walk then and … she really does love me too?” she asked looking for you like you had the answer to that question. Not wanting to further damage the young girl’s already frazzled emotions you agree and she gives you her first smile which only widens when you agree to help her search for Crystal. You beckon over Spector who stops his lazy swimming to wade over to you both. Caitlin smiles at the Drowsee and says ‘Hello’ feeling more comfortable with another Psychic Pokemon trainer.

    “The street is at the far end of town over there,” she says pointing. “I’ll show you the way,” she said walking ahead while you and Spector follow behind. As you walk through the streets and near your destination you notice how quiet your surroundings become with less and less people milling around compared to the centre of town. You must have been walking for a good 30 minutes when Caitlin stops her gaze set on a dark street in the distance.

    “Its over there, we should be really careful. Daddy says I should never come here and I don’t want to but if Crystal is in there somewhere I have to be brave; and you’ll both protect me,” she says sounding confident of that last statement that had you a little worried.

    Taking point you enter the darkened street with Caitlin behind you and Spector bringing up the rear. You see that the few shops dotted here deal in rather weird and illegal produce and most are covered with thick bars and doors with slide-slots to only allow access to the right people. You walk past a pair of Raticate that hiss at you angrily with their rabid red eyes eying your flesh and a man sat outside a decrepit house grinning at you maliciously. Picking up the pace you hear a set of loud voices coming from inside a small warehouse. You think nothing of it but hear the mention of rare Pokemon and find your intrigue peaked. You motion for Caitlin to follow which she does keeping very close to you as walk down an alley to the back of the warehouse. Stopping outside a window you can hear several voices deep in conversation.

    “I found it wandering the streets this morning, pretty little thing isn’t it,” one voice said and you could almost feel the leer of his gaze from the tone alone.

    “It is a rare little sell you’ve found there, will fetch a good price at the Black Market for sure,” another said with admiration.

    “What can I say, I always get the best merchandise,” he says chuckling in a deep voice.
    A soft voice whines and is followed by the sound of a cane hitting flesh and a squeal of pain.

    “Stop whimpering, we’ll find you a nice owner soon enough,” the man says laughing.

    Whatever’s going on in there it doesn’t sound very legal, maybe you’ve stumbled on to what you were searching for but you have no idea of what is lurking inside that warehouse waiting for you.
    Verne began to wonder what he let himself in for; looking around it was clear to see why Caitlin’s father wouldn’t let her down here, the sinister dens and dives that lined the street clearly housed illicit activities, but for now they had to keep focus on what they were here for.

    Verne glanced down at Caitlin, he saw the determination on her face, “Caitlin seems to be coping, she must really feel for her Crystal” He thought to himself.

    The broken, echoing voices of two men caught the attention of Verne from down one of the dank alleyways. He flagged over Caitlin who was behind him, who was in turn, followed by the plodding footsteps of Spector. They creped down the alley and cowered under the broken window of the warehouse, listening to the conversation unravelling inside.

    Already horrified by the what they heard the men saying, it was the heart-piercing screams of the Pokémon inside was enough for Verne, he signalled for Spector to crawl around in front of Caitlin, “OK buddy, you ready for some action” Verne whispered into the Drowzee’s ear. Spector took in a short breath, before nodding confidently.

    Verne clambered to his feet, and glared through the window, “Gents, I suggest you stop that at once!” He shouted.

    That’s alright. What you do with your character is up to you.

    Feeling rather silly for forgetting such an important aspect about Ghost Pokemon you play with sand next to you wishing the ground could just swallow you up. You drag yourself out of your misery long enough to see Squirt’s Hydro Pump hit home and feel a little better, at least that attack works. Squirt looks towards you and you suggest that since Hydro Pump is that only attack that will work that he sticks with that. You glance over to Cacnea who’s watching the battle with great interest and cheering on Squirt. You wonder for a moment if you could use it in battle before you realise that as a wild Pokemon it probably wouldn’t obey you anyway. You couldn’t afford to lose this battle, you came to see the villages and having found one your chance to see it in all its glory was at stake. If you did your time here would have been a waste … well maybe not entirely as you glance at the little cactus that seemed happy around you. With orders to use two more Hydro Pumps Squirt set to work. He blasted that cold pressurised jet at Banette who dodged it this time and shot back with another Nightshade that knocked Squirt back onto his butt. Picking himself back up he focused on his opponent ready to attack and at the right moment shot another Hydro Pump at Banette who Screeched at the same time cutting the attack short leaving a short spray that hit the ghost and pushed it up into the air. Hydro Pump was a powerful attack and such was draining Squirts energy already and he was getting tired. Banette upon seeing this shook its head eyes coloured with disappointment, it had been a long time since it had a good challenge and this Pokemon was merely too weak to provide it.

    Suddenly its eyes light up as it gets an idea and grins. It gathers light blue energy in its hands and throws it at Squirt. Squirt gasps as the energy surrounds him and shines so bright you have to turn your head away. When the energy dissipates you gasp as you see what’s left. Squirt looks down and notices that the ground is further away than before. His claws are bigger and belly is definitely larger. He turns to face you and you see a Croconaw staring back at you. What had Banette done? Banette grinned pleased with its work and hissed out “Better … challenge” in English that makes your jaw nearly hit the ground. Not only had it evolved your Pokemon … it can talk!! This is nearly enough to make your brain overload. “Temp ..porary” Banette hisses out whilst urging Squirt to battle. Cacnea whose mouth was wide open held its arms out wide hoping that Banette would evolve it too. Well it seems that Banette wanted a more even challenge and by temporarily evolving Squirt has obtained it.


    You now have a Level 21 Croconaw who knows all the attacks up to and including that level (including any egg/mt/tm moves already taught)

    All Tim could do was stare in awe at his newly evolved Coconaw. Squirt looked more terrifying with his large fangs and claws, not to mention Squirts dark green skin which made him look more like a crocodile. "C- C- Coconaw!?" Tim stumbled through his bag for his pokedex because Tim really couldn't believe what he saw. Once he finally found it he found this to be no illusion. "This is so amazing!! Squirt evolved and he can talk!?" shouted Tim when he remembered what Banette said. “Temp ..porary” Tim sent a look of gratitude towards Banette and decided to hold off on his plan until later. "Just in case Squirt turns back into Totodile before the battle ends, I'll hold off on my plan." *grip* Tim clenched his hands tightly as he became more hopeful for the win. "Hey Squirt! My dex said you have more moves to your arsenal and I'm guessing that's temporary too. So we better take advantage of this while it lasts." Croconaw nodded in agreement. "Most defiantly!" Squirt said in a British accent. "WOW! YOU EVEN HAVE A COOL ACCENT!" Tim said in awe. Tim shook his head to get his mind back in the game. "Okay! Squirt, use Leer, and follow up with Ice Fang and Bite!" Tim shouted to Squirt. "Rightyo then Tim! Leer! Ice Fang! Hydro Pump!" exclaimed Squirt. Tim looked to the side to see Cacnea who was obviously envious towards Squirt for his evolution, even though it's temporary. Tim smiled towards Cacnea and thought, "It's decided, before I leave I'll ask Cacnea to join me."

    Thanks for the surprising boost! I thought I was a goner for sure. =]

    Mediville (Please reply in lemonchiffon)

    RaunchyFad ~ This battle was intense and it felt like it was drawing to a brutal and painful close. Rocky was feeling the effects of this war more than any other Pokemon involved. Her body was marred with scratches and bruises but she didn’t care, she had started the fight with the beast, she had not expected to come out of it unscathed. She would see this fight to the end, even if it meant her end, an admirable and brave thought indeed. Taking a moment she was glad she had Meowth in front of her for the time being giving her a much needed break to recuperate and gather herself. As a trainer you knew that Pokemon get injured in fights but to it first hand, to see how worm and battered Rocky was made your stomach turn and you nervous for her wellbeing. Biting your lip you tell her to just harden up for now whilst observing the injuries sustained by their foe, the Purugly. It looked just as beaten as your own, but it had underestimate Rocky and Meowth and by challenging you had brought this upon itself. Time to finish this.

    Rocky with her orders clear sits back and Hardens her skin boosting her defence for the time being. Meowth remained her shield for now keeping its watchful eye on Purugly, the cat in question biding its time and waiting to strike. Meowth knew that to attack it would have to leave Rocky and get closer to Purugly. Sighing it looked over its shoulder to Rocky sending a silent message to her before running at Purugly. As it reached the fat cat it received a swipe of the claw in a heavy Scratch attack swatting it aside. With its main target in sight Purugly charged at Rocky before pulling back its meaty limbs to attack. Feeling your heart lurch in your chest you watch as it move to take the final strike. Just as its paws land Rocky vanishes speeding out of the way. Slumping against the wall in relief you spot Rocky appear at Purugly’s side and smack right into it. Mewoth having recovered enough from its blow leapt up onto Purugly’s back and Scratched away make it buck in pain. It roared angrily and tried to dislodge the smaller feline. Rocky with what was left of her strength ran at Purugly again striking it with another Quick Attack knocking its legs from underneath it this time. Purugly collapsed to the ground. Meowth still clinging on opened its mouth wide and bit down hard on its neck willing it to pass out already. Purugly whined in pain and its head smacked the ground as it succumbed to darkness. Level up for Rocky. Meowth leaps off Purugly wiping its mouth free of fur and gave it a harsh glare, it had gotten its vengeance for the terror Purugly had reined on the streets of Mediville. Rocky stumbled over to you pleased at her victory but wanting nothing more than to rest now. The Glameow all nervous talked to each other looking down at their fallen leader before they scattered leaving you alone in the dark alley with the downed Purugly, Meowth and Rocky.


    Concore ~ As you stood by the open window listening to the two men inside the warehouse discussing their latest find you wondered who would willingly come to this place. Caitlin, despite the horrid environment was maintaining her composure, probably confident that you’d protect her and her mind was obviously on her missing Pokemon. Hearing the squeals of Pokemon being abused you hold back your anger you signal Spector to stay with Caitlin, you were going to deal with these men right now. Getting to your feet you calmly suggest the two men inside stop what they’re doing causing them to do what you ask, stop to find the source of the voice.

    “Is that the police,” one whispered to the other, “Would they dare to come down here?” he nervously asked his companion.

    Meanwhile Caitlin having too heard the screams of Pokemon was holding back her tears before running towards a door pushing it open and slowly walking inside. Spector called after her and threw his hands up in annoyance before motioned for you, running after the small girl. ‘Well its time to face the two thugs inside’, you thought as you followed after Spector entering the small warehouse to see him standing in front of Caitlin holding her back. The two men looked at the three of you with bemused expressions on their faces. Caitlin was calling out for Crystal who you spotted next the man wearing a long worn brown trench coat. She was wearing a short leash that was attached to the wall by a metal ring. She held her ear-like arms out for Caitlin crying in fear.

    “Well well, what are two young children like you doing here?” the guy in the trench coat asked.

    “You … You. YOU STOLE CRYSTAL. GIVE HER BACK TO ME NOW!” Caitlin yelled with tears running down her cheeks, fighting against Spector.

    “Now why would I want to do that?” he asked leering at you all.

    “Man, what if these brats go to the police. They know you took their Pokemon.” The other man spoke seeming nervous of the idea.

    “They wouldn’t get out of here in one piece if they tried,” The other man said sounding very confident of that.

    “I can’t be involved in this, I’ve done enough time already,” the other guy said running out of the warehouse, the man in the trench coat glaring at his back.

    “Whatever,” he muttered. Turning to face you he grinned. “Well now, we can’t just let you go off and inform the fuzz of our little secret can we. Come with me and I’ll make sure you get home alright.”

    Seeing your resolve he glared and said “You forget about this Wynaut, cause you’re never having it back Its mine to sell now.” He said before pulling his trench coat aside to reveal a Pokeball hidden on his belt. “I wouldn’t want to hurt you now,” he said smirking.



    The Graveyard (Please reply in silver)

    Furrett ~ Upon listening to the old ghostly woman’s request you turn to face where she was pointing to spot a large tomb in the distance. You agree to take Natu there to say goodbye to his family. Picking up Natu’s Pokeball you feel a wave of pride wash over you, this was your very first capture. Releasing its occupant Natu emerges on the ground looking up at you. Omega reminded of his wounds by looking at his feathery team-mate rubbed the sore spot but still managed a warm smile. Seldon performed a little twirl before posing in front of Natu, her way of saying hello. You bend down and welcome Natu to your team yourself adding that you hope you’ll get along. Natu seemed a little indifferent to your welcomes and merely hopped off towards the tomb. You thank the spectral lady one more time before following after Natu, he seemed to know the way. A short walk later you stop in front of a large marble tomb. Trying the door you feel it shut tight, well you weren’t getting in that way. Looking around you spot your new Natu standing before a small marble statue of a proud looking man with a Xatu next to him and a Natu on his shoulder. Natu began to speak to the statue in his own tongue. Approaching him you suddenly see the forms of 3 Xatu appear behind the statue, well that answered your question, they definitely weren’t alive anymore. Natu noticed your approach and pointed towards you. The ghostly apparitions all turn their focus to you and your Pokemon and you feel a cold chill run down your spine for the second time today. The central Xatu pointed its long wing at you,

    “You are the one who has captured Natu?” it asked telepathically and you wince at the question, you assume it can’t be too pleased to see its family capture. You tell it yes and it seems to think. Natu speak to it again and the Xatu nods.

    “Natu says it was a hard fought battle, one that could have been won by either side,” you agree again and it nods “That is Natu’s first defeat, but we can see it is by a strong starting trainer,” it said almost praising you. “I can sense that you have a good heart and will care for Natu … please do” it says before addressing Natu.

    “Natu, we will miss you but you must live. Live on for us and see the world like we all once did. You will feel the joys of working alongside humans as I once did with my best friend. We will always be your family and we will always be thinking of you. We will together again my son but that day is far from now.” Natu nodded a small tear falling from his eye. It hops over to you and gives one last looks back as his family before he hops away with you.


    You have proved yourself enough here therefore I release you from the Arcane Realm. Upon replying to this update you’re free to post in the mainstream zones (I know they’re currently un-manned but something is being worked out so fear not). The two zones per trainer rule will still apply when you do. Good Luck in all your future adventures ^-^




    Desert of Illusion (Please reply in darkorange)

    Music Box ~ You were literally flabbergasted! Before you stood Squirt, but not as you knew him. He was taller, fatter around the middle with bigger claws and a larger jaw. He tested his new limbs and grinned over to you. It certainly wasn’t expected but Banette seemed more than pleased by its work. Now with your newly evolved Croconaw you would prove to be more of a challenge for the Marionette Pokemon. Retrieving your Pokedex from your bag you shuffled through to find Croconaw’s page looking through all the new moves Squirt would now know. Whatever you had planned originally you put on hold with this new development. Now to take advantage of the … well new advantage you now had before Squirt reverted back to his old self. Squirt happily replied and you ran through the new attacks one last time, excited to try them out. Giving Croconaw his orders he ran them back to you, stumbling over the last one getting it wrong and you hoped he heard you right.

    Banette grinned, back to the battle then. Croconaw faced Banette and Leered at it and thanks to his evolution looked a lot more scary than before and Banette hesitated. Gathering Ice energy in his mouth Squirt leapt up at Banette and chomped on it, passing right through it but leaving the ice damage within the ghost making it wince in pain. Banette pointed a finger at Squirt who became covered in a grey aura making him shudder in pain losing double the energy from his attack; Banette’s Spite had Squirt regret using that move. Squirt made to attack again when he stopped, what was his next move again? Bite or Hydro Pump. He wracked his memory trying to remember what you had instructed him to use. Whilst he was temporarily indisposed Banette cackled and pointing a finger at Squirt again sent forth its shadow, the black form rushing forth striking Squirt making him stumble back a little. That had stung. Deciding to just attack anyway Squirt leapt up and bit down on Banette passing right it again but this time leaving dark energy circulating through its body making it cry out. That super effective move really hit hard. This battle was really getting heated now with both Pokemon pretty even despite the damage Squirt had previously taken.



    Artifical Dragon ~ Sighing with relief you pick up Igneous whom was pleased at his first victory in battle despite how tired he felt. You were just glad that the arduous battle was finished and with a happy ending too. Picking up Baltoy’s pokeball you tapped it to release the cheeky little toy. It spun around before remembering where it was. It too looked knackered and looked up at you realising what had happened. You felt a little guilty at releasing it so soon after battle but you needed it now, it could rest later. Placing Igneous in your backpack you picked up your new Baltoy and sternly tell it that it belongs to you and you didn’t want to see anymore tricks. You couldn’t quite gauge its reaction but it almost looked like it sulked at that order. You inform it that you all want to rest but first you want to go to one of the villages that lie in the desert somewhere. Placing Baltoy back on the ground it begrudgingly looked up to the sleeping Cyndaquil in your backpack blaming its situation on that; even though it had been the one to start it with its tricks. Reluctantly is began to spin off in one direction and you hoped it was leading you the correct way.

    As you walked along behind Baltoy you searched your mind for a good name for it, after all you just couldn’t keep calling it Baltoy. Remembering one of your favourite songs you inform Baltoy that its now called Parabola and it sighed not quite happy with your choice of name but it would have to deal with it. It pondered spinning off when you weren’t looking but it would have to deal with the evil Cyndaquil in your backpack and you chasing after it or recalling it to that device. Anyway it didn’t have the energy to fight again or run away. The three of you kept moving through the desert and you spot a large sand dune that seemed familiar. Hadn’t Igneous rolled down that one earlier in the day? Nah, these sand dunes all look alike, it must be your imagination. After a long while of walking you head over a sand dune and gasp before looking down at Parabola angrily. It hadn’t lead you to a village, it had lead you to the exit of the Desert of Illusion. Ready to give it a piece of your mind Baltoy looked up to you and you could almost swear that it was grinning at you. It tried to communicate with you but you couldn’t quite understand it. Asking it whether it knew where the villages lay it shook its head, it didn’t. It sighed and lay back in the sands in exhaustion giving you a look that said ‘Please just let me rest now’ before closing its eyes wearily. Well there are not many choices available to you now.

    Silverton Ranges (Please reply in lightsteelblue)

    Lemon~Lime ~ Hugging your tired and injured Gligar to your chest you are thankful that the battle is over and that you had won. Glancing down at the unconscious Sableye on the ground by the mine’s entrance you feel a wave of compassion. Even though it was quite feral and had attack so relentlessly it was only protecting the gems of the mine. You couldn’t just leave it here in the cold for any person or Pokemon to come along and take advantage off. With an empty Pokeball in hand you threw it at the downed dark gremlin watching as it was absorbed within. Once you had captured it you would go back into the mine again and have a better look around, there had to be some gems left inside. The Pokeball wobbled slightly before the light diminished. Congratulations. You have captured a Level 05, Male Sableye. Picking up your new Pokemon’s ball you enter back into the mine with Gligar still in your arms. You get to the point where you first encountered Sableye and peer into the darkness. It was pitch black further into the mine, you could use some light before you go any further. Either that or head on out of the mine and back up the mountain.


    With Sableye’s capture you have unlocked you rights to the Egg House

    Congrats on becoming a mod, and thanks a lot for updating and putting up with me. :D

    "YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME," Alina cried with frustration. "I run around the ENTIRE desert looking for these villages and to only go in a COMPLETE CIRCLE."

    Her Cyndaquil woke up with a start and jumped out of the backpack, not exactly knowing what was happening, while Parabola continued to just lay there and didn't even twitch. Alina let out a groan and dropped to her knees to just stare at the exit now. Well, at least it was civilization again. It wasn't far from the nearest Pokemon Center now... her Baltoy did the best it could. She dug a Pomeg Berry out of her backpack to give to the Baltoy, as a reward for leading her to the exit of the desert. Parabola stood straight up and eyed the berry curiously, not quite knowing what it was.

    "Go ahead, eat it. Wait, do you even have a mouth..?" Alina said, now curiously looking over the Baltoy's face. Igneous crawled in her lap to get her attention that he wanted a berry too. After all, he was the one who tracked down and fought that Baltoy. Alina turned away from Parabola to pick out a Babiri Berry from her backpack. When she looked back up she saw that the Pomeg Berry she had given her Baltoy had disappeared, and Alina stared in awe. "How the hell did you do that?"

    Parabola collapsed on the ground again as Alina stood up, making an extremely happy Igneous roll off her lap. She returned the exhausted Baltoy to its Pokeball and picked up her Cyndaquil, who was still munching on the Babiri Berry. Looking back at the desert for the last time she could see that the sun was now setting, and it was getting cold fast. She felt grateful that she was finally out of the Desert, or she would have to endure one cold night. Ironic how a place so hot could become so cold. Now smiling broadly, she carried her little Cyndaquil in her arms as she exited the Desert of Illusion to continue her adventures elsewhere.

Meowth still clinging on opened its mouth wide and bit down hard on its neck willing it to pass out already. Purugly whined in pain and its head smacked the ground as it succumbed to darkness. Level up for Rocky. Meowth leaps off Purugly wiping its mouth free of fur and gave it a harsh glare, it had gotten its vengeance for the terror Purugly had reined on the streets of Mediville. Rocky stumbled over to you pleased at her victory but wanting nothing more than to rest now. The Glameow all nervous talked to each other looking down at their fallen leader before they scattered leaving you alone in the dark alley with the downed Purugly, Meowth and Rocky.
    “Jeeeeeeez,” Paul moaned before sighing in relief. It was over, finally! He could finally leave this alley and find a place in this blasted town that was as far as can be from cats. Before moving from him place, however, he slumped to the ground and picked up his seedot. Her eyes were all squinty and she seemed barely alive, but she had done an excellent job and earned herself a gentle hug from her ignoramus trainer. “We’ll go smoke doobs after this,” he whispered to her, a smile plastered on his face. Though this would’ve normally earned him a slap, Rocky quietly agreed in her own way even though without a mouth she wasn’t able to do so even if she wanted to. It was okay; no matter how you looked at it, the moment was definitely a tender one.

    After the moment had passed and Rocky was nestled safely in Paul’s lap, his attention had turned to the meowth that had saved his seedot from entering a life threatening comatose. For a moment he was lost in the bright shine that reflected off of the coin that balanced perfectly upon its head until one of those few good ideas came to mind that maybe he should try to catch it.

    “Hey, li’l bobcat…” he paused for a moment before reaching into his backpack. “You did a great job, man,” he paused again and displayed the PokéBall to the meowth (who looked pretty beaten as well, mind you), hoping that it knew what he was asking. “You know, this way you won’t have to steal food anymore!” he smiled. Never having caught a pokémon before, he figured he was doing it wrong. Either way he hoped that the meowth would accept his request, especially since he was so proud of how it had done in the battle.

    Music Box ~ You were literally flabbergasted! Before you stood Squirt, but not as you knew him. He was taller, fatter around the middle with bigger claws and a larger jaw. He tested his new limbs and grinned over to you. It certainly wasn’t expected but Banette seemed more than pleased by its work. Now with your newly evolved Croconaw you would prove to be more of a challenge for the Marionette Pokemon. Retrieving your Pokedex from your bag you shuffled through to find Croconaw’s page looking through all the new moves Squirt would now know. Whatever you had planned originally you put on hold with this new development. Now to take advantage of the … well new advantage you now had before Squirt reverted back to his old self. Squirt happily replied and you ran through the new attacks one last time, excited to try them out. Giving Croconaw his orders he ran them back to you, stumbling over the last one getting it wrong and you hoped he heard you right.

    Banette grinned, back to the battle then. Croconaw faced Banette and Leered at it and thanks to his evolution looked a lot more scary than before and Banette hesitated. Gathering Ice energy in his mouth Squirt leapt up at Banette and chomped on it, passing right through it but leaving the ice damage within the ghost making it wince in pain. Banette pointed a finger at Squirt who became covered in a grey aura making him shudder in pain losing double the energy from his attack; Banette’s Spite had Squirt regret using that move. Squirt made to attack again when he stopped, what was his next move again? Bite or Hydro Pump. He wracked his memory trying to remember what you had instructed him to use. Whilst he was temporarily indisposed Banette cackled and pointing a finger at Squirt again sent forth its shadow, the black form rushing forth striking Squirt making him stumble back a little. That had stung. Deciding to just attack anyway Squirt leapt up and bit down on Banette passing right it again but this time leaving dark energy circulating through its body making it cry out. That super effective move really hit hard. This battle was really getting heated now with both Pokemon pretty even despite the damage Squirt had previously taken.
    "Squirt!" Tim shouted, "I think we should go on with the plan, come over here for a second!" Squirt and Tim huddled up as Tim explained his plan. "Okay, we have this amazing power right now so we should just go on with my plan." Squirt looked at Tim with a confused look on his monstrous face. "What plan? You never told me about any plan..." said Squirt in a quiet tone. "Oh! I'm sorry I got ahead of myself. Anyways, remember how when you used scratch. Well, Banette began to laugh a lot which kept him/her wide open. Well, if we can get Banette to laugh at you again. Maybe it will drop its guard again." As Tim explained, Squirt didn't seem to happy about making himself look dumb. "Tim, I am a proud pokemon and I'd rather not stoop down to that." explained Squirt in a rather annoyed tone. "I know, but if we want to win we need this plan. So get back out there and use Scratch. If my plan works and Banette drops his or her guard, then follow up with two Bite attacks. Can you do that for me? Please?" After a good thirty seconds of mulling it over, Squirt agreed. "Fine, but it's only because I don't want to lose." said Squirt. "Thanks! Now get out there and do your best!" said Tim in a delightful tone.

    Concore ~ As you stood by the open window listening to the two men inside the warehouse discussing their latest find you wondered who would willingly come to this place. Caitlin, despite the horrid environment was maintaining her composure, probably confident that you’d protect her and her mind was obviously on her missing Pokemon. Hearing the squeals of Pokemon being abused you hold back your anger you signal Spector to stay with Caitlin, you were going to deal with these men right now. Getting to your feet you calmly suggest the two men inside stop what they’re doing causing them to do what you ask, stop to find the source of the voice.

    “Is that the police,” one whispered to the other, “Would they dare to come down here?” he nervously asked his companion.

    Meanwhile Caitlin having too heard the screams of Pokemon was holding back her tears before running towards a door pushing it open and slowly walking inside. Spector called after her and threw his hands up in annoyance before motioned for you, running after the small girl. ‘Well its time to face the two thugs inside’, you thought as you followed after Spector entering the small warehouse to see him standing in front of Caitlin holding her back. The two men looked at the three of you with bemused expressions on their faces. Caitlin was calling out for Crystal who you spotted next the man wearing a long worn brown trench coat. She was wearing a short leash that was attached to the wall by a metal ring. She held her ear-like arms out for Caitlin crying in fear.

    “Well well, what are two young children like you doing here?” the guy in the trench coat asked.

    “You … You. YOU STOLE CRYSTAL. GIVE HER BACK TO ME NOW!” Caitlin yelled with tears running down her cheeks, fighting against Spector.

    “Now why would I want to do that?” he asked leering at you all.

    “Man, what if these brats go to the police. They know you took their Pokemon.” The other man spoke seeming nervous of the idea.

    “They wouldn’t get out of here in one piece if they tried,” The other man said sounding very confident of that.

    “I can’t be involved in this, I’ve done enough time already,” the other guy said running out of the warehouse, the man in the trench coat glaring at his back.

    “Whatever,” he muttered. Turning to face you he grinned. “Well now, we can’t just let you go off and inform the fuzz of our little secret can we. Come with me and I’ll make sure you get home alright.”

    Seeing your resolve he glared and said “You forget about this Wynaut, cause you’re never having it back Its mine to sell now.” He said before pulling his trench coat aside to reveal a Pokeball hidden on his belt. “I wouldn’t want to hurt you now,” he said smirking.
    Verne could clearly see the shocked expression of the duo’s faces; this was something they really weren’t expecting! As he watched the two squabbling, he failed to notice Caitlin heading inside, answering the beckoning call of her companion; it was only the fact that Spector alerted Verne with an irritated tut, and a shrug of his shoulders before dashing off, high on the heels of Caitlin, that he realized the drama outside.

    Following them in, Verne could hear that Caitlin was already deep into conversation with one of the men, he was then forcefully brushed aside by the other one, who was bolting for the door that they had just walked through. After recollecting himself, the first thing he noticed was the Wynaut, secured up to the wall, chain tort and craning out for it owner. What hit him next was the man’s piercing eyes and grubby trench coat, he looked the proper rough character, and this was going to be no walk in the park.

    Verne walked over and stood behind Spector who was refraining Caitlin from running off, he gave him a firm pat on the shoulder and stepped in front of the wrestling couple. He now realised that he was in deep, and there was only one way out of this.

    “You forget about this Wynaut, cause you’re never having it back Its mine to sell now.”

    He stuck with the determined expression on his face and firmly said “No, I don’t think so, that Wynaut is coming with us!” all the while eyeing up the grubby-looking Pokéball, “Caitlin, I need you to stay there, can you do that for me?” he asked, “Spector, you ready buddy?”.

    Lemon~Lime ~ Hugging your tired and injured Gligar to your chest you are thankful that the battle is over and that you had won. Glancing down at the unconscious Sableye on the ground by the mine’s entrance you feel a wave of compassion. Even though it was quite feral and had attack so relentlessly it was only protecting the gems of the mine. You couldn’t just leave it here in the cold for any person or Pokemon to come along and take advantage off. With an empty Pokeball in hand you threw it at the downed dark gremlin watching as it was absorbed within. Once you had captured it you would go back into the mine again and have a better look around, there had to be some gems left inside. The Pokeball wobbled slightly before the light diminished. Congratulations. You have captured a Level 05, Male Sableye. Picking up your new Pokemon’s ball you enter back into the mine with Gligar still in your arms. You get to the point where you first encountered Sableye and peer into the darkness. It was pitch black further into the mine, you could use some light before you go any further. Either that or head on out of the mine and back up the mountain.


    With Sableye’s capture you have unlocked you rights to the Egg House
    Mike returned Scorpio to his Pokeball as soon as he reentered the mine, for he deserved a good rest after all he’d been through. He pumped his fist in the air as he ran toward the spot where he’d first encountered the Sableye, excited about the new addition to his team and the riches he thought he would soon have. However, to his dismay, a quick look around revealed there were no gems to be found. This was going to require a Pokemon’s help. He held the Sableye’s Pokeball in his hand. “Come on ou-oh wait, I forgot to name you!” he said. “I’ll call you…Klaus! Come on out, Klaus!”

    Mike pressed the button to enlarge the Pokeball and tossed it into the air, opening the capsule, which then shot a red bolt of energy to the ground that took the shape of a Sableye. The energy then solidified into Klaus, who looked around upon being released from his Pokeball. Still wounded and tired from his battle earlier, Klaus looked up at Mike and scampered up onto him, searching for a place to rest. “Hahaha!” Mike said as the Sableye crawled all over him. “Stop it, that tickles!” Klaus eventually settled on his shoulders, taking Scorpio’s usual spot. Mike chuckled at the thought of them battling each other for the spot, then got down to business.

    “Look, Klaus,” he said, twisting his head so that he could speak to Klaus face-to-face. “You can see pretty good in the dark, right?” Klaus nodded haughtily, proud of his talent. “Okay, I know you’re new to my team and all, and you might still have some hard feelings toward us from tiring and hurting you like that, but we beat you fair and square, so we deserve to know where those gems are, right?” He nodded again, this time more wearily. “Then I need you to lead me to where the largest collection of them are right now, before your poison takes you down. And if you see anything dangerous, you are to signal me at once. Oh, and here's a bit of Potion for you to help you heal." Mike took out the spray-bottle of medicine and administered the whole thing to Klaus' wounds. Klaus gave him a thumbs-up, now significantly refreshed, and pulled Mike’s arm forward. Mike was a little puzzled at first, but soon got the picture, making a mental note that whatever direction Klaus pulled his arm in was the way he ran. He then headed farther down into the cave, running as he went to speed things up and preparing for either the armload of jewels or boatload of trouble that might follow.

    Furrett ~ Upon listening to the old ghostly woman’s request you turn to face where she was pointing to spot a large tomb in the distance. You agree to take Natu there to say goodbye to his family. Picking up Natu’s Pokeball you feel a wave of pride wash over you, this was your very first capture. Releasing its occupant Natu emerges on the ground looking up at you. Omega reminded of his wounds by looking at his feathery team-mate rubbed the sore spot but still managed a warm smile. Seldon performed a little twirl before posing in front of Natu, her way of saying hello. You bend down and welcome Natu to your team yourself adding that you hope you’ll get along. Natu seemed a little indifferent to your welcomes and merely hopped off towards the tomb. You thank the spectral lady one more time before following after Natu, he seemed to know the way. A short walk later you stop in front of a large marble tomb. Trying the door you feel it shut tight, well you weren’t getting in that way. Looking around you spot your new Natu standing before a small marble statue of a proud looking man with a Xatu next to him and a Natu on his shoulder. Natu began to speak to the statue in his own tongue. Approaching him you suddenly see the forms of 3 Xatu appear behind the statue, well that answered your question, they definitely weren’t alive anymore. Natu noticed your approach and pointed towards you. The ghostly apparitions all turn their focus to you and your Pokemon and you feel a cold chill run down your spine for the second time today. The central Xatu pointed its long wing at you,

    “You are the one who has captured Natu?” it asked telepathically and you wince at the question, you assume it can’t be too pleased to see its family capture. You tell it yes and it seems to think. Natu speak to it again and the Xatu nods.

    “Natu says it was a hard fought battle, one that could have been won by either side,” you agree again and it nods “That is Natu’s first defeat, but we can see it is by a strong starting trainer,” it said almost praising you. “I can sense that you have a good heart and will care for Natu … please do” it says before addressing Natu.

    “Natu, we will miss you but you must live. Live on for us and see the world like we all once did. You will feel the joys of working alongside humans as I once did with my best friend. We will always be your family and we will always be thinking of you. We will together again my son but that day is far from now.” Natu nodded a small tear falling from his eye. It hops over to you and gives one last looks back as his family before he hops away with you.


    You have proved yourself enough here therefore I release you from the Arcane Realm. Upon replying to this update you’re free to post in the mainstream zones (I know they’re currently un-manned but something is being worked out so fear not). The two zones per trainer rule will still apply when you do. Good Luck in all your future adventures ^-^



    Potato nodded at the Xatu, wondering how long Natu had been there to himself.

    Potato would liked to have explored more, but he was sure the three Xatu would not appreciate him dragging Natu all over the place, and god knows Omega did not want to be here in the slightest.

    So, with a last look at the Xatus, Potato turned and made his way out of the graveyard. Natu, Seldon and Omega followed ever faithfully.

    Potato yawned, suddenly feeling tired. The sun had been setting as he had entered the graveyard, and the moon was in the sky now. He needed sleep.

    “I think I need a name for you,” Potato remarked tiredly to Natu. “How about… Tei.”

    Tei rolled his eyes.



    Thanks Arc and Tess. I've had a lot of fun here ^^

    RaunchyFad ~ Finally, it was over and all the remained as evidence of the battle were the three Pokemon involved. Purugly was unconscious on the ground and wouldn’t be going anywhere anytime soon. Meowth had received the least amount of damage but was still favour its left side. Rocky, poor Rocky, she was looking a right state. Her brown acorn body was marred with purple and red bruises, scratches and a couple of teeth marks where you munched on her. Slumping to the ground in relief you cradled your beaten Seedot to your chest proud of how well she fought despite the pain she had suffered. You make her an offer she would normally reject but being too tired she merely nodded eager to just rest now. The moment you shared was probably the first tender one you will remember. You immerse your self in the moment enjoying being so close to your Pokemon before your gaze is drawn to the other participant in your battle. The Meowth was licking the scratches on its side to try and speed up the healing and you are dazzled for a moment by the light shining off the gold coin on its head. After all you had been through, you didn’t want to lose touch with the little kitty cat now.

    Catching its attention it stops licking its wounds to look up at you and smiles at the praise you give it, noting the happy tone of voice you use. You pull out a Pokeball and Meowth’s gaze falls to the capture device an unreadable expression on its face. You jokingly tell it that it would mean that it wouldn’t have to steal food anymore and Meowth raised an eyebrow at that, remembering your success with food too. Meowth seemed to think over your offer, it after all battled alongside you and felt stronger for doing so. You had helped it to gain back its lost confidence. But on the other hand you had tried to eat your own Pokemon, if you got hungry again would you do the same to it? It stared at the ball for what felt like an eternity before it moves closer to you on all fours. It looked up at you andgave a stern look that said ‘if you try to eat me I swear’ before it touched the Pokeball with its paw. It was transferred to light energy and sucked inside. The ball remained still and the red light diminished. Congratulations. You have captured a Level 05, Female Meowth. With a new addition to your team you feel an even greater pride. Now all that was left was for you to leave this dark alley and get your Pokemon healed up.


    With Meowth’s capture you’ve unlocked your rights to the Egg House and are hereby released from the Arcane Realm. Upon replying to this update you’re free to post in the mainstream zones (I know they’re currently un-manned but something is being worked out so fear not).

    Concore ~ Standing firm you watch as the dastardly duo argued amongst one another before the smarter one left hurriedly not wanting anything to do with this. You see Spector putting all his effort into holding Caitlin back so that she doesn’t get hurt. The man leers at you all and it takes all your effort to not walk over there and punch him for his actions. Taking a few calming breaths you take in the situation entirely. The man in the worn trench coat was obviously threatening you with a battle if you didn’t leave and forget about what you saw here; but that wasn’t an option. Crystal seemed elated to see her trainer but the way the man was treating her, chaining her up like a wild feral beast was disgusting, and all this talk about selling her, you were going to put a stop to this before it went any further. You doubted very much that the man would let you leave here in one piece anyway. You walk in front of both Spector and Caitlin and pat your Drowsee on the shoulder the action causing both parties to stop their actions. With a bold and adamant voice you tell the man that you think not that that Crystal was coming back where she belonged. The man sneered at you and half-snorted half-laughed, amused by your statement.

    “Is that so, well then I’ll make sure that we’ll all leave here together and it won’t be pretty for you three. Maybe I could sell your Drowsee too. Don’t think it would pick up much but it might be worth it for slave labour or maybe meat for someone” he said and laughed.

    You hold down your anger and disgust and ask Caitlin to stay back and let you and Spector handle this pathetic excuse of a human being. Caitlin cast one last look over to Crystal and nodded.

    “Please get her back for me,” she whispered to you.

    Spector stood before you ready to battle and hopefully beat the man senseless afterwards for his ruse remarks. The man grinned and pulled off the single Pokeball from his belt. Enlarging it he sent out his Pokemon that turned out to be much small than Spector. The Skorupi hissed angrily clicking its claws together. You look surprised, not only is he using a Pokemon smaller than Spector but it had a type disadvantage. Maybe this would be easier than you thought.

    “Skorupi, Leer and Bite,” the man ordered the small scorpion ready to attack.




    Desert of Illusion (Please reply in darkorange)

    Music Box ~ The last round has gone well with you getting some good strong attacks in, still you felt the need to go with the plan you had thought of before Squirt evolution. You get Squirts attention, the Croconaw keeping one eye on the Banette and tell him that you still want to go with your original plan. Squirt asks what plan you mean and you remind him about what happened when Squirt last tried to use a Scratch attack The Banette had been distracted by the rookie move and it had allowed Squirt to use his Hydro Pump and he had hit the ghost with it. You suggest that Squirt uses another Scratch hoping that Banette would drop its guard and then he could attack with two super-effective Bite attacks. Squirt seems appalled by the suggestion of trickery to gain an advantage but after mulling it over agrees to go with your plan, only if it helps him win the battle.

    Banette watched your exchange with interest and despite the pain it was still feeling was glad it had a real challenge at last. Squirt turned back to Banette and leapt up pulling its claw back and leaping right through the ghost again, his Scratch surprisingly ineffectively. Squirt turned around only to get a face full of black energy that hit him with a smack throwing him back. Banette having finished its Nightshade looked thoroughly pissed off, it thought it had a challenge and yet you were still using these ridiculous attacks. Squirt wasn’t happy with the move and even less happy as he felt a blue aura surround him making him immobile. Banette had a few tricks of its own up its sleeves and its Disable has rendered Squirt useless. Banette lifted the large Croconaw up and dropped it back down on his butt. Squirt looked ticked off at being mocked and now it couldn’t use its Scratch attack well he didn’t care about that. He leapt forward and Bit down on Banette again making it wince and shudder as the dark energy course through it. That was more like it! Squirt still on the move used another Bite to chomp down on Banette leaving it looking rather ill. All these super-effective attacks were wearing down its health rapidly. Banette merely grinned through the pain and surrounded itself in a black aura. Yelling it charged at Squirt ramming into him hard and throwing him into the rubble. Squirt struggled to get back to his feet and just about managed it with encouragement from Cacnea who looked concerned for the crocodile. That Payback had caused a significant amount of damage and now both Pokemon were even on health, and it wasn’t good.




    Silverton Ranges (Please reply in lightsteelblue)

    Lemon~Lime ~ Returning Scorpio to his Pokeball for a rest you celebrate alone as you run up to the Pokeball containing your newest Pokemon. Still holding onto Sableye’s Pokeball you run back into the mine, your mind on harvesting some precious gems or ores and you reach the spot you first found the dark gremlin. Looking around you see in dismay that there weren’t any gems here after all. Sighing you droop your shoulders till you get an idea. Maybe Sableye could help you out; after all he was your Pokemon now. Choosing a name before you release him, your new Sableye Klaus emerged on the ground looking quite injured still and wobbles on unsteady legs. The short spell in his new home had roused him at least. Klaus decided to rest on your shoulder and just about clambered up there making you giggle as his claws softly ran over your skin when he climbed. At least he wasn’t trying to eat you, he must realise that you’re his trainer and so it wouldn’t be a good idea to maim you. You ask Klaus if he can see in the dark and he snorts, of course he could, Sableye had superb eyesight. You explain the situation and ask him to show you to the gems now he was on your team, the largest collection if possible. Before you start off you use a Potion to heal Klaus’s wounds and he feels better for you managing a half-thankful glance before hopping off your shoulder. He grasped your arm and began to drag you into the darkness.

    As you walk along not able to see a thing due to the level of darkness in the mines you hoped that Klaus wasn’t plotting some form of revenge. You really wished the lamps were still work so you could see the path you were taking and hoped that Klaus didn’t run off and leave you here alone to search for the exit, never finding it. Shaking the disturbing thoughts from your head you trip as you move down hill and Klaus hisses at you for nearly treading on him. Apologizing you carry on and soon you spot a few beams of light up ahead. As you walk towards them you can see that you’re in a large cavern that was probably the main mining area. Holes in the ceiling were allowing a few beams of sunlight to filter through allowing you see some of the cavern. There were some disused mine carts and equipment on the rails and upon searching through it find nothing left. Suddenly you spot something shiny up ahead. Running up to touch it you don’t hear Klaus’ warning. Touching the silver ore you leap back in shock as it moves. A small Aron looks up at you and fearfully cries out. A roar echoes through the cavern making you back up as several Lairon and a large Aggron approach from behind the little Aron. Klaus hid behind your leg looking fearful. Aggron spots Klaus and roars pointing at him making him shiver in fear. It appears that these Pokemon know Klaus and are not happy to see him, I wonder why?

    Oh boy! This was a nice little jaunt we had, man. I look forward to my Cascadia adventures, and I sure hope we get some updaters soon. Fare thee well! ;-;

    Ecstatic, Paul launched the PokéBall to the ground and after a bright light and loud pop, let his newly caught pokémon be free to roam around. Setting down his seedot, he picked up the meowth and gave it an appreciative hug.

    “Li’l Bobcat, you’re grade-A, man!” he said as he set her onto his shoulders where she gingerly balanced herself. She meowed then plunked down, creating a sort of cat-scarf that stylishly accented Paul’s hairy neck. Though it was kind of itchy, Paul’s neck was comfortable and certainly would become a popular spot for catnaps.

    Reaching into his bag, Paul pulled out a Rare Candy and fed it to his meowth, or his Bobcat, rather, then once again picked up Rocky and headed far, far away from the alleyway and back into town, where hopefully he could find a Pokémon Center. Once he did, it was time to blow this pop stand. Paul’s magnificent journey through the cat-filled streets of Mediville had ended, and now it was time to move elsewhere. It was a happy end, though. Paul had finally moved a step up from being a hairy bum to a Pokémon Trainer: someone with an actual job!

    Lemon~Lime ~ Returning Scorpio to his Pokeball for a rest you celebrate alone as you run up to the Pokeball containing your newest Pokemon. Still holding onto Sableye’s Pokeball you run back into the mine, your mind on harvesting some precious gems or ores and you reach the spot you first found the dark gremlin. Looking around you see in dismay that there weren’t any gems here after all. Sighing you droop your shoulders till you get an idea. Maybe Sableye could help you out; after all he was your Pokemon now. Choosing a name before you release him, your new Sableye Klaus emerged on the ground looking quite injured still and wobbles on unsteady legs. The short spell in his new home had roused him at least. Klaus decided to rest on your shoulder and just about clambered up there making you giggle as his claws softly ran over your skin when he climbed. At least he wasn’t trying to eat you, he must realise that you’re his trainer and so it wouldn’t be a good idea to maim you. You ask Klaus if he can see in the dark and he snorts, of course he could, Sableye had superb eyesight. You explain the situation and ask him to show you to the gems now he was on your team, the largest collection if possible. Before you start off you use a Potion to heal Klaus’s wounds and he feels better for you managing a half-thankful glance before hopping off your shoulder. He grasped your arm and began to drag you into the darkness.

    As you walk along not able to see a thing due to the level of darkness in the mines you hoped that Klaus wasn’t plotting some form of revenge. You really wished the lamps were still work so you could see the path you were taking and hoped that Klaus didn’t run off and leave you here alone to search for the exit, never finding it. Shaking the disturbing thoughts from your head you trip as you move down hill and Klaus hisses at you for nearly treading on him. Apologizing you carry on and soon you spot a few beams of light up ahead. As you walk towards them you can see that you’re in a large cavern that was probably the main mining area. Holes in the ceiling were allowing a few beams of sunlight to filter through allowing you see some of the cavern. There were some disused mine carts and equipment on the rails and upon searching through it find nothing left. Suddenly you spot something shiny up ahead. Running up to touch it you don’t hear Klaus’ warning. Touching the silver ore you leap back in shock as it moves. A small Aron looks up at you and fearfully cries out. A roar echoes through the cavern making you back up as several Lairon and a large Aggron approach from behind the little Aron. Klaus hid behind your leg looking fearful. Aggron spots Klaus and roars pointing at him making him shiver in fear. It appears that these Pokemon know Klaus and are not happy to see him, I wonder why?
    Mike stepped back in surprise as the supposed ore he was touching looked up at him and cried out in fear, turning out to be an Aron. In a flash, there was a gigantic roar, and a few Lairon and an Aggron appeared. Klaus jumped and hid behind Mike’s leg, trembling. The Aggron spotted the gleam of Klaus’ jewel-eye and his arm on Mike’s leg and roared while pointing at Klaus, who started to hug Mike’s leg. Mike put on a calm face before starting to negotiate.

    Mike bent down to the poor little Aron, nearly frightened to death by his wandering hand. “I apologize, little one.” he said. “I meant you no harm. I thought you were something you were not, and I never would have disturbed you if I knew you were an Aron.” He stood up and picked up Klaus by the scruff of his neck. “As for this little demon here, he is under my control now. He will not do anything I tell him not to do.” Mike looked at Klaus sternly. “And I tell him not to harm you or any other Pokemon in the mine. We’ll soon be on our way, but could you guys spread the word throughout the cave that this Sableye is taking orders from a good person and won’t hurt anyone anymore? Thank you.” Mike put Klaus down and held his hand rather tightly to ensure he wouldn’t do anything stupid. “Now, Klaus,” Mike said, “If you could continue leading me.” Klaus sighed and nodded while Mike picked up an old pickax in case they came across any gems stuck in the wall.

    Music Box ~ The last round has gone well with you getting some good strong attacks in, still you felt the need to go with the plan you had thought of before Squirt evolution. You get Squirts attention, the Croconaw keeping one eye on the Banette and tell him that you still want to go with your original plan. Squirt asks what plan you mean and you remind him about what happened when Squirt last tried to use a Scratch attack The Banette had been distracted by the rookie move and it had allowed Squirt to use his Hydro Pump and he had hit the ghost with it. You suggest that Squirt uses another Scratch hoping that Banette would drop its guard and then he could attack with two super-effective Bite attacks. Squirt seems appalled by the suggestion of trickery to gain an advantage but after mulling it over agrees to go with your plan, only if it helps him win the battle.

    Banette watched your exchange with interest and despite the pain it was still feeling was glad it had a real challenge at last. Squirt turned back to Banette and leapt up pulling its claw back and leaping right through the ghost again, his Scratch surprisingly ineffectively. Squirt turned around only to get a face full of black energy that hit him with a smack throwing him back. Banette having finished its Nightshade looked thoroughly pissed off, it thought it had a challenge and yet you were still using these ridiculous attacks. Squirt wasn’t happy with the move and even less happy as he felt a blue aura surround him making him immobile. Banette had a few tricks of its own up its sleeves and its Disable has rendered Squirt useless. Banette lifted the large Croconaw up and dropped it back down on his butt. Squirt looked ticked off at being mocked and now it couldn’t use its Scratch attack well he didn’t care about that. He leapt forward and Bit down on Banette again making it wince and shudder as the dark energy course through it. That was more like it! Squirt still on the move used another Bite to chomp down on Banette leaving it looking rather ill. All these super-effective attacks were wearing down its health rapidly. Banette merely grinned through the pain and surrounded itself in a black aura. Yelling it charged at Squirt ramming into him hard and throwing him into the rubble. Squirt struggled to get back to his feet and just about managed it with encouragement from Cacnea who looked concerned for the crocodile. That Payback had caused a significant amount of damage and now both Pokemon were even on health, and it wasn’t good.
    Just picked up Squirt from the Move Tutor so I'll resume my adventure from where I left off.
    "Damn!" Tim thought as he watched his plan crumble,"Oh well, we still have one more trick up our sleeves." Tim's face was still looking confidant without even the slightest look of panic. "Squirt! Use that move you learned a while ago!" shouted Tim to the Croconaw. "Hmp, I was wondering when we'd bring that out!" Croconaw stated in a cool strong voice. "Here I go!" Croconaw lept into the air and curled his hand into a fist. "Ice Punch!" Croconaw shouted. "Please, please, please hit!" Tim crossed his fingers hoping for the move to be successful. "Squirt, after you use Ice Punch use Leer and Bite!" Tim shouted to Squirt. "Both Squirt and Banette are pretty warn out. I wonder how much more this battle will last, hopefully we can finish this while we can!" though Tim in an almost concerned voice. Even though Tim was in the middle of a battle, he couldn't help but keep an eye on Cacnea picturing what life would be like if Cacnea joined up with him.

    Music Box ~ Banette was not at all pleased by your plan and neither were you watching as Squirt was battered by the last attack. But still, you were deterred by the failure of the last plan for you had another one locked away. Pushing down the panic at the injured state of your Pokemon you order Squirt to use his newest move, Squirt eager to give some retaliation as he picked himself up off the rubble. With a set of 3 moves planned Squirt set to work trying his hardest to get his protesting muscles to move. With all the strength he had left he leapt up curling his claw into a fist. Powering ice energy into it he roared a he slammed the Ice Punch into Banette’s face, the ghost screeching in pain and falling back. Your Croconaw pushing through his exhaustion stood tall and stared down Banette, his eyes flashing in a ferocious Leer only to stumble back and hold his ears in agony as Banette Screeched for all it was worth. Banette looking tattered around the edges darted forward surrounded in dark energy hoping to finish Squirt off. Just as it was about to strike Squirt opened his jaws wide and clamped them down on Bannette just as it passed in a last ditch effort Bite attack, falling back as the Knock Off hit. Banette hit the ground sending up dust as it slid coming to rest by your feet. You rush over to check on Squirt to see him lying on the ground also. He opens one eye and grins at you before the same blue light surrounded him again. Before your eyes he reverted back to the Totodile that you knew. Level up for Squirt. You smile at the memory of Squirt in his evolved state and feel pride over how well he battled even with a different body. Cacnea jumped up and down running over to congratulate the crocodile on his victory. You gaze down at the cactus longingly; it was already a good friend, you were glad to have met it.

    Banette, recovered enough to float over to you nodded grinning silently thanking you for the battle. You could sense that it had been a long time since it had the opportunity. Honouring its agreement it raised its arms and the village was restored, the buildings ancient but intriguing in design, people milled about going about their everyday lives unaware of their death. The Pokemon from the pedestal were all there with their trainers, the Xatu looked deep in thought, Bronzong hovered near some children ring its bell for their enjoyment, Golem flexed its muscles and trained on a specially crafted gym set and Banette floated in and about playing hide and seek with some children. Real-time Banette looked at the scene with fondness in its eyes, its memory had brought the village back to life but now it was all that was left. It looked to you and drew a ‘5’ in the air signifying how long you had to look at the memory before it disappeared along with its owner. Cacnea and Squirt were looking through the village with interest. You have 5 minutes to see what you came to the desert for, better make the most of it.

    Lemon~Lime ~ Once again mistaking a Pokemon as a precious ore you find yourself facing a tiny Aron along with several Lairon and Aggron all setting their harsh glares upon you and the Pokemon that hid behind you. Aggron looked particularly displeased to see the small Sableye with you and Klaus seemingly recognising the Aggron was trembling with fear. You apologise to the Aron who backs off to be closer to the Lairon nearest to it, it’s obviously not comfortable around humans. Picking up Klaus by the scruff of his neck, the gremlin struggling against your grasp and fixing you with a murderous look you tell the gathered group of steel Pokemon that he belonged to you now and as such followed your orders. You continue to tell them to pass on word that Klaus now was a trained Pokemon and meant no harm to any other Pokemon in this mine. Putting the struggling Sableye down you grip his arm tightly and the gremlin struggled against your grip trying to get further away from the mass of steel Pokemon. Aggron seemed intrigued by your actions and words. As you picked up a pick axe it took the opportunity to approach you the ground shaking with every step it took. It got right up close and personal that you could its hot breath washing over you and you feel a little less confident now. It sneered down at the Sableye who was pulling against your arm and trying to make himself as small as possible.

    Aggron pointed around the cavern trying to portray a message to you. It pulled a singular gem from somewhere within its armour and held it out. The ruby glinted in fragile beams of sunlight and Klaus’s eyes widened almost hungrily. Aggron pointed to the gem and shook its head. It pointed at Klaus and made an eating motion that made your heart sink. Was it saying what you think it was saying? Looking down to Klaus you can see that he has a sheepish look on his face before lowering his head and nodding. Unreal! Klaus had eaten every gem and ore in the mine!! No wonder he didn’t want you continuing further into the mine, he didn’t want you stealing his meals. It seemed that the ruby was the only thing left and Aggron was very protective of it. Aggron grinned wickedly at Klaus and the Sableye almost cried in fear. Aggron roared and three Lairon charged forward to surround you. It spoke to them and pointed back to where you came from. It seems that Aggron is extremely pleased to be rid of the menace that ate all the ores and gems of the mine and now that you had captured him, they could have some peace and cultivate what was left. The Lairon nudged you urging you to move making you drop the pickaxe. Begrudgingly you were escorted back the way you came and to the entrance of the mine. The Lairon fixed you with a look that basically said ‘don’t you ever come back, especially with that Sableye’. Well that trip for gems hadn’t worked out exactly like you had planned.


    You have proved yourself enough here and I release you from the Arcane Realm. Upon replying to this update you’re free to post in the mainstream zones. The two zones per trainer rule will still apply when you do. Good Luck in all your future adventures ^-^

    Mike sighed after the Lairon were out of view from the cave entrance. What an ordeal that had been! All that hard work, only to discover that Klaus had eaten everything in the mine except a ruby! "Well, Klaus," he said, "No more gem hunting for us, I suppose. C'mon, we should go back down to the base of the mountain. Scorpio still needs to get healed up." And with that, Mike's journey in the Silverton Ranges came to an end, having found no gems but acquiring a good addition to his team.

    OOC Ty for being my updator. See ya later! ^^
