OOC: ILU <3 Used Fiery Dance and Flamethrower
The Starly caught the doll in its beak, and the small Pokémon flew away. I found it weird how a doll made them want to leave. Did the doll have some sort of scent that made them want to leave? Or did the dolls have some sort of spell on them. Either way, these dolls were extremely handy when you don't want to battle certain Pokemon.
You couldn’t imagine how angry I was getting. I didn’t know why, but I got angry a lot for little things. Yeah I needed some sort of anger management class, but that anger did make my battles much more interesting. All I kept finding was Pokémon that I didn’t want, minus Honchkrow. Honchkrow was pretty cool, and I did want one, but I wanted to train it as a Murkrow first, and plus, because Cameron wanted to add Murkrow to his Pokedex. If he wasn’t my brother then I wouldn’t have given a shit and just caught Honchkrow more than likely, even though I did like training them as young as possible. It made training them better because training young Pokemon new things was easy, training an old Pokemon new things was hard. If only there was a way to de-evolve Pokémon. I would do that to a lot of my Pokémon, if they allowed me too that is.
I raised the volume on my voice disk even more. I wasn't sure if that would work, but it would cover more ground and perhaps one would hear it. Something had to come my way. It was so loud now, I could see the walls shaking as the roar went through the staircase we were climbing. Of one didn't hear that, then I wasn't sure I would find one. I just sighed. I didn’t have much time left before the batteries or energy the voice disk had ran out. I knew I should have brought two of them. I usually do, but since Outer Heavens didn’t have many Pokémon, I figured finding one would be like finding Weedle in the Viridian Forest. Unfortunately, I wasn’t having much luck. It was hard to keep positive when things weren’t going your way. I let out another small sigh, I tried not to rage as much since that didn’t get me anywhere, but it did make me feel good. At least I could release that rage in battle... if I found someone to battle that is. Otherwise I would go through this whole run filled with rage, and even more rage when I reached the end and still no Druddigon or useful Pokémon. If that happened, then I was just going to escape my ranger’s clutches and go on my own run to find what I was looking for. I had done if before, but no one so far has caught me, at least that I was aware of. It was sort of fun going on my own and finding the Pokemon when there was no ranger on my ass, because then I could do things my way. Of course they were still legal, but it was just more carefree.
We climbed up a few pillars. When we got near the top of one of the staircases, I was about to put my voice disk up and try again later, but then I heard a louder, more realistic roar. I felt my negative energy flow out of my body as that familiar roar echoed through the staircase. I felt the floor rumble and knew something was coming our way. I quickly ran up the stairs and then I saw it. The large creature I was looking for. Druddigon. The large, blue, hunchbacked, reptilian creature with medium-sized wings shaped like thistle leaves. The wings surprised me as I expected them to be a bit bigger, but they were smaller than I expected. Its eyes were glaring ferociously towards us. I saw that his arms were longer than his legs and his wings. His thick tail, about the size of his wings swung back and forth as he waited for us to make a move. The sharp claws on both the hands scraped the floor. I could see by the way his claws caused sparks on the floor, just how sharp they were, I was sure his claws on his feet were just as sharp. We were going to have to be careful with that. His whole body looked like little jagged knives. On his bright red head, the horns and spikes were coming out everywhere. He had three red spikes on each arm and similar ones on his tail, shoulder blades, and legs. He roared again loudly, showing he didn’t have sharp teeth as I thought, but upon closer look, you could see small fang like spikes coming from his jaw. It didn’t look as dangerous as razor sharp teeth though. His yellow pale eyes looked at us. He was checking us out to see what he was up against.
Mud then brought out a device similar to my Pokedex. It then said, "It warms its body by absorbing sunlight with its wings. When its body temperature falls, it can no longer move. That was pretty good to know. I was going to use that to my advantage when the time came right. I just had to get to that point in battle.
"I don't even have to ask you if you want to battle this Druddigon." He laughed, giving me the go signal. He was damn right I wanted to battle this Druddigon. I grinned and nodded, there was no doubt that I wanted to capture this Pokémon. This was the main reason I had come here to this area. I really wanted to use my Masterball, but every time I got close to using it, I backed out and just wanted to battle. I guess it was because I really loved to battle and a Masterball didn’t allow me to do that, or perhaps it was just because it was so rare. Either way, I was battling this Pokémon, but with whom I didn’t know yet. I pulled out my Pokedex to get my own scan of the Pokémon and so that it would give me more details on the creature.
Druddigon – the Cave Pokémon. Druddigon are known to be about five feet to six feet tall and weight around three hundred to five hundred pounds. Their abilities consists of Rough Skin, Sheer Force, and the occasional, Mold Breaker. They are one of the only pure Dragon Pokémon, others being, Bagon and Shelgon, the Haxorus family, and the notoriously rare, Dratini and Dragonair. It races through narrow caves, using its sharp claws to catch prey. The skin on its face is harder than a rock. It warms its body by absorbing sunlight with its wings. When its body temperature falls, it can no longer move. Druddigon nimbly chases prey around its den, using its outstretched claws to catch them, they are carnivorous.
“Interesting.” I mumbled. So I will have to find a way to lower his temperature to immobilize him. However, that isn’t going to happen until I was ready to capture it. I didn’t want him to be immobilized during our battle, I wanted him battling at full capacity to see what he was made of. If he seemed good enough, then I would capture him. I only wanted certain Pokémon on my team, ones that would prove to be extraordinary with a bit of training. That’s how I caught all of my Pokémon. Had to make sure they were worthy of being on my team. They had to show the will to train, the strength to surpass challenges, and the wit to get out of certain situations. I could easily test for that here, but I only cared if they had one of those right now, I could get the rest in him while we trained.
Alright, I had five Pokémon. Skullcruncher could easily take Druddigon down in one move if he wanted too, but that wouldn’t show me how he did in battle, so I was going to have to use someone who wasn’t super effective against him. Shadow would be a perfect choice to use. He was Dark and Fire type and had a move that was super effective against the Druddigon and other moves that could do some damage, but he was one of the most powerful Pokémon I knew. Leo raised him well. If he wanted too, he could take down Druddigon and take minimum damage. Same for Mindbender, but she would be better to use because she was incredibly skilled in inflicting status conditions on Pokémon like putting it to sleep or paralyze it. She could pretty much inflict all of the status alignments there were. Cybershock was similar to Mindbender except he could put as many status moves as she could. I would have chosen Mindbender to battle, but I wanted to take this battle into the sky to see how well he did there, so I was going to use Skullcruncher to get me up there. Shadow, Mindbender, and Cybershock couldn’t fly, so I was going to have to use Flamefeather.
I tossed out a Pokéball and a large orange moth shot out of the ball. Her four small feet wiggled around. She stretched her six leaf-like wings, as she did; flames were coming off of her wings and scattered all around us. Her blue eyes stared down Druddigon. The smoky white fuzz looked soft like the clouds above. She extended her wings, and fire came out of each of them, making it look like a Fire Blast attack. I liked how her wings always did that, especially the way she controlled them.
“Alright! Skullcruncher, blast a whole in the roof with Dragon Pulse. We’re taking this into the sky.” I called out as I hoped onto his back. Skullcruncher raised his head and formed a purple ball. Small pulse rings shot out of the ball and took a piece of the roof off. “Let’s go.” I called out to Druddigon. The open space in the sky would be perfect for us to battle in. Druddigon flew up towards us. “Sorry, I’ll pay for that if needed. Or I’ll get it fix after this run.” I whispered to my ranger. I know causing damages to the park would get me a warning or something, but I wanted to battle in the sky. Yeah, I could have just walked to the end and went out the window, but where was the fun in that.
“Alright, Flamefeather. Use Quiver Dance then go into a Flamethrower attack. It won’t be super effective, but perhaps it will cause a burn on him. If not, we’ll try a Will-o-Wisp attack next. Right now I just want him to see our power so he’ll know what he is up against. Then we’ll see what he is made of.”
Flamefeather began dancing around beautifully. Then I stopped her before she could finish. “Actually, use Fiery Dance. If you use Quiver Dance, you may be too strong for him if you do that. Besides, you don’t need to bring up your special defense or speed. We’ll leave it to chance and see if you get a rise in your special attack the good, if not then oh well. Use Flamethrower afterwards though still.” She nodded and proceeded with the attack.
Her wings engulfed in flames as she danced around. The faster she danced, the more her body began engulfed in the flames. When she was finally covered in them, she sent the ball of fire towards Druddigon. It was all sorts of colors, red, blue, green, yellow, and white flames mixed together. It was like a colorful beam of light. Then she quickly began forming a stream of flames that she would launch at Druddigon once Fiery Dance hit, if it did. I was aware that if I wanted him immobolized, Flamefeather would not be the one to use for that. In fact, all she would do is just make him hotter, which was the opposite of what I wanted to happen. I was going to have to let that go because I didn't want to switch Flamefeather for someone else in the middle of a battle. I could find another way to capture it.
I was pretty happy that I finally found Druddigon and was getting to battle it. Now I just had to get it low enough to capture and move on to find a Farfetch’d or Murkrow. So far it was going good. Now I had to wait and see what exactly he could do. I didn’t want Flamefeather to get hurt too badly, but if Druddigon did attack her physically with a move like Crunch, then there was a chance he would get burned anyways because of her Flame Body ability. It was something I was going to count on since Druddigon was a physical attacker, not a special attacker, so that could be used to my advantage. He was known to be able to use Surf, but with there being no water around, it was going to be hard to use that move so I wasn’t going to worry about as of now. If it did somehow pull that move off, I would be surprised as hell, seeing that we were several hundreds of feet into the air. Then again, clouds had water in them, but these didn't look as if they had a lot of water.
