Stepping out for the second round of the UBF, Jaydin was a little upset that she had actually forgotten her goggles and some of her more warmer clothes for some of her disguises she had back at home. However, as she trudged through the snow with her more appropriate winter attire, she brought her arms around her to keep in heat as the cold still penetrated through her clothing choice. It didn't bug her as much since she actually grew up in Sinnoh and had pretty harsh winters in general, though this was still difficult, make no mistake.
As Jaydin's red scarf whipped behind her, Trépas hovered along by her side. The small, blue-eyed Gengar was not as affected by the weather as much his human was. As he looked at her, it pained him to see her fighting through this weather with no warmth -- and it pained him even more that he couldn't be helping her keep it since he knew he acted as a heat sink.
Jaydin's teeth started to chatter and she fell to her knees in the snow. Her eyes started to sting as tears started to brim them and immediately freeze in the harsh weather. How could she just give up like this...? She came here to have fun... and even that conversation she had with Emito when she actually thought about what was going to be going on in this competition. She said that she would prove to everyone that just because she has a certain type of Pokémon team in her party didn't mean that she couldn't get through this...
"Gengar... Gen gar genga!" Trépas shouted, grabbing Jaydin by her sweater and tugging her back up forcefully. "Gen gen genga gengar!"
Blinking back the other tears that were coming forth, Jaydin looked to her life long friend and parted her lips slightly in slight awe and wonderment. She could never understand the Gengar in his Pokéspeak, but the two shared a bond... they had ever since they met in the Old Chateau almost twelve years ago. The two were inseperable -- that's why Jaydin never kept him in a Poké Ball. Though... the words he was getting across were right. Jaydin couldn't just give up... she couldn't just throw away all that she had said. She needed to go forwards and prove herself.
"You're right... Trépas... thank you," Jaydin said to him, smiling. Closing her eyes after that, she exhaled and then reeled over memories in her mind. Training with Morty had sprung to mind immediately. He was another reason that she needed to push herself. Jaydin wanted to uphold her part as a Ghost-type specialist... that way she could be in his ranks at least.
'Hypnosis doesn't only put Pokémon or people to sleep, Jaydin...'
'Hypnosis can also get people and Pokémon to do what they want them to be. It's a dangerous move... and I advise for you to use it with caution when you issue for your Trépas to be using the attack.'
"That's it!" Jaydin exclaimed, reaching out and hugging Trépas close to her. The Ghost-type didn't seem to really mind the attention, though he did point an arm out to be getting on with the show.
"Trépas, use Hypnosis!" Jaydin said to him, looking down with a grin. Her expression was merely met with the most confused look that the small Gengar could ever muster up. Jaydin just grinned wider and continued, "remember what Morty said, Tré. Hypnosis doesn't only put people and Pokémon to sleep. I want you to make me make it through this round. What kind of Ghost-type Specialist can I call myself if I can't use the moves that Ghost-types use to my personal advantage in times like this?"
Phasing through her arms and looking at her with a stern look, Trépas frowned. He was reluctant to be attacking his own human. Though he recognized that she had a stable point. It was the fact that Hypnosis usually makes it so that the person under it was like a zombie that concerned him.
But... if she said to do it....
Trépas' eyes glowed a lavender colour as he waved his hands out in front of him before his human. Soon, her own eyes dulled and had a bluish tint appear to them. As she looked around while bringing an arm up to her face, she looked to Trépas quizzically. Why didn't it feel as if she were in an 'out of it' state'? Was this what Hypnosis felt like being under?
No... couldn't have been... she had been under it before....
"Trépas... why didn't you do the attack?!" Jaydin almost shouted, her brow furrowing with slight aggitation.
'I did... I just made it so that you can control yourself until my assistance is needed...' came the response in Jaydin's mind. The brunette looked taken aback as she heard that -- the voice... the voice was as clear as if someone were right there talking to her in a normal tone instead of having to yell above these winds!
"Tré... was that... you?" Jaydin asked, looking to him.
'Indeed it was...' Trépas responded, hovering close besisde her.
"Wow, that's so amazing! I never knew I'd be able to communicate with you to where we both understand one another, but this... this is just truly--!"
'My human, I understand... but if you don't get a move on, others will find whatever it is you have to find before you do...' Trépas interjected, trying to get Jaydin's mind back on track.
Frowning for brief moment, Jaydin then nodded and then looked towards where she was headed. "Let's go, Trépas! If it gets worse later, I'll have Kaunis sent out for her Snow Cloak ability and then Revenant to ride atop of if I can't walk any further!"
With that, she started to charge through the blizzard, Trépas quickly following after so the Hypnosis bond didn't waver.
