I looked around the area. Like with Delibird, I hadn’t expected to find anything right off the back, but sure enough, a Sneasel is what we found. Almost immediately after pressing play, one dashed over our heads and landed right in front of us. We hadn’t even gone a mile into Oktori and one was here. This had to be the luckiest trip in terms of a person finding what they wanted. I hadn’t known anyone who was this lucky off the back. I felt happy, I couldn’t hide the grin on my face. This Sneasel appeared to be pretty fast, which wasn’t surprising since they were known to be insanely fast. In fact, they were the fastest Ice type Pokémon out there. They were known to be as fast as Jolteon, Aerodactyl, and Crobat. I at least knew this guy was fast, but now I wanted to know if he had the power to go with that speed. A fast hitter was something I needed. My Jolteon was pretty good, but he could only do so much against certain types of Pokémon, and that is where I wanted Sneasel, or Weavile to come in. He could take down Grass types, Flying types, most Dragons, Grass, Psychic, Ghost, Dark, and on occasion, some Fighting types if played right. He could be a great lead in a lot of battles. If and when I caught this Sneasel, I couldn't wait to try him out in battle and see how he does.
I already knew a bit about this type of Pokémon since I had already previously owned one, but it wouldn’t hurt to get some more information to jog the memory. This Sneasel looked pretty much the way my last partner did. It was mainly all black and a bipedal Pokémon that looked vaguely between a mix of cat and weasel. It had a small bright red feather-like growths on its left ear and lower back. Just like Delibird, I knew how to identify whether it was male or female. I had also saw on this documentary how you can tell the difference between the two. A male Sneasel would have a larger bright red feather on its head. The female on the other hand, would have a small bright red feather on its head. Since I knew that information, I knew that this Sneasel was female. Those documentary videos on the Discovery Channel did come in handy after all. I could see that she had razor sharp claws that she was retracting in and out. I couldn’t help but to laugh because it reminded me of Wolverine from Xmen and his adamantium claws that could cut through pretty much anything. She also had yellow markings on her face and chest.
"Well that was quick. Anyway, here's that Sneasel you said you'd go for if the disk worked." John said.
“Yeah, you’re right! That was quick. Is this going great or what?” I said with the big grin still on my face. I didn't want to gloat, but seeing how well this was going, I couldn't help it. I pulled out my Pokedex and scanned this Sneasel.
Sneasel – The Sharp Claw Pokémon. Sneasel stand anywhere from two feet to four feet and weigh roughly around sixty to one hundred and twenty pounds, though you will hardly find any over ninety pounds since they stay in shape since they rely on their speed a lot. Sneasel are known to have the abilities Inner Focus and Keen Eye, rare ones even know Pickpocket. These Pokémon are extremely vicious, once they start attacking, they will not stop attacking until its foe is incapable of moving. They conceal sharp claws in their paws, but they can quickly extends the claws if they feel threatened. They are sly creatures. They enjoy eating the eggs of Flying type Pokémon. They sometimes work in pairs; one to lure the parents away, the other to steal the eggs.
“Well,” I began to say as the Pokedex finished. “They are incredibly vicious. I didn’t know that, even though I had one before. I guess mine was more tamed since I had him since he hatched from an egg. I don't remember any time where my Weavile acted viciously.” I thought about my team for a second to decide who to use. Flamefeather just battled, and I didn’t her going up against this Sneasel if it was as vicious as the Pokedex states. Shadow might overpower the Sneasel, and Mindbender didn't need to battle a fast, strong Dark type Pokemon. That could seriously injure her. Then, I knew who I was going to use. “You know what they say. You have to fight fire with fire.” I said, tossing a black and red Pokeball in front of me. A large black dragon with two arm-like heads appeared in front of me and roared loudly. I knew Hydreigon were known to be violent, destructive, and brutal in battle. Although this particular Hydreigon was pretty tamed, Sneasel didn’t know that. I was hoping that she would be scared of him. Although, Skullcruncher was weak to Ice types, but he loved battling Pokémon that were considered to have the advantage in battles because it made him stronger. That alone was all I needed. He always liked to prove himself, and I felt that this was a good place to do it. I already knew he could, but he was the type that actually had to do it to believe it.
“Alright Skullcruncher! Remember that bowling technique I taught you?” I called out. Skullcruncher nodded and grinned. “Yeah, let’s try that out here to bring down his speed.” The bowling technique consisted of two moves. Rock Tomb, and Bulldoze. Skullcruncher would slam his tail hard into the ground which would bring forth large rocks that would hit and surround Sneasel, temporarily immobilizing him. The rocks and Sneasel would be the bowling pins. Then, Skullcruncher would claw his way halfway into the ground and begin charging at Sneasel, slamming into him hard with the earth he gathered. He was would be the bowling ball.
Skullcruncher began the assault and slammed his tail hard into the ground. I saw several large boulders emerge from the ground. He then launched them at Sneasel. I knew their was a good chance she could do dodge them, but if this technique worked as I had planned, Sneasel would not only be slower than it usually would be, he’d have a decent amount of damage done to her. I had borrowed Skullcruncher from Rex last week to teach him this combo, which is why I wanted to bring him along today, so I could see it in action. That would not only give him a lead in the battle, it would make him faster as well which would be easier for my next moves. I watched and waited for the plan to unfold. This was all too good. I just hoped my luck didn't run out. This was going all too well. If only Cryonogal came next, then this would be the fastest, most beneficial run I'd ever gone on. If it doesn't come next, then that was fine too because it would give me time to scope this place out. I was planning on returning here to find a Sawk and whatever other Fighting types come my way. If I could scope out which areas the Ice type Pokemon were hiding, I could learn which areas to avoid when coming back for Sawk so that I don't run into any Ice types. Though, that was only if I found Cryonogal. If I didn't, then, I was going to have to come back again and try once more.
