A large blue dinosaur looking Pokemon came charging from out left side. I took one look at it and knew I didn't want Shadow battling it. Not that he couldn't take it, I know he could easily win if I left him in, but I wanted Midender to have a go.
"Shadow, stand down." I called out. He looked at me with pleading eyes, but immediatly stepped back. "I know you want to battle, and I know you can win, I just want Mindbender to have a go against this Pokemon so that she can see what we're up against. Don't worry, I'll use you again soon buddy." Shadow barked happily and stood by my side. I placed the two Santa hats in my backpack and pulled out a blue and geen Pokeball. I tossed it in front of me and a tall green and white humanoid Pokemon appeared before me. Her white ballroom gown swayed from side to side as she focused on the her opponent. The Nidoqueen didn't waste anytime, it started off by launching a Sandstorm attack. Sand came up from the white snow and twirled around her head.
"Mindbender, use Psychic on the snow on the ground to knock away the Sandstorm attack. Then follow it up with a Psychic attack directly on it." I called out.
"Gar-de-voir." She began to chant. Her psychic powers lifted snow off of the ground as it launched forward to collide with the Sandstorm. If that worked, Mindbender would then attac it with a powerful Psychic attck. Usually what she did was lift it off of the ground and slam it hard, or use an item near by it to do so. In this case, I guessed that she was just going to use the snow in her Psychic attack, I waited and watched.
