When I saw Crawdaunt wasn’t going to leave without a fight, I readied my Pokedoll.
“Hand me the Doll and run,” Makina muttered to me. “Meet me at the bridge.” I saw a bit of doubt on her face, and I could relate. I wasn’t exactly sure how these dolls worked, but I was sure glad I had them. I needed them on several occasions today, even against a Magikarp, I wasn’t even sure how that thing managed to follow us.
“Alright,” I answered, handing her the doll. “See you there then.
“I don't know about you, but I'm going to ask the Shopkeepers what exactly they put in those dolls,” she said, shaking her head.
“I’m with you there. I too am curious as to how exactly it distracts them. Though, they probably will keep it a secret, because if it got out, then people could make their own and they wouldn’t be able to sell the dolls anymore. She nodded and we carried on down the path.
A tapping sound, which sounded like someone throwing pebbles at a wall, could be heard coming from our left side. Makina went over to the side to attempt to identify the source. I quickly followed her because I too was interested in what was making that sound.
“Talk about an odd place to train. Interested in a Remoraid?” Makina asked me. I looked at her. I could tell she was ready for me to say no and pull out a Pokedoll and try to escape this Pokémon, but instead, I decided I would surprise her and actually battle this Pokémon. I looked over the edge and looked at the small Pokémon.
It was a small, light-blue fish-like Pokémon. It had saucer-like eyes, with two darker-blue markings on its back and a purple mouth with four pointed teeth. He had a single pelvic fin positioned like a revolver's trigger, two caudal fins, the bottom one resembling the butt of a gun and the top one being the hammer, two small pectoral fins and a dorsal fin near its mouth, as if a gun's front sight. I could now see how some people say that this Pokemon looked like a gun.
“Hmm, you know what, I will battle and catch it.” I said. “I don’t have one of those Pokémon yet, and it is in basic form. So yes, I do want to battle this Pokémon. Let me just get some information on it first.” I said, pulling out my yellow and black Pokedex. I pressed the button and a green bright light shot out and hit the Remoraid.
Remoraid – The Jet Pokémon. Remoraid is a Water type Pokémon. Remoraid is about two feet in length and weigh around twenty to thirty pounds. Remoraid is said to resemble a gun, on the same note, it also learns things like Bullet Seed, Lock-On, Hyper Beam Octazooka, Water Gun, and Rock Blast. They are also said to have incredibly good accuracy and are rumored to hardly miss, they can strike foes from over three hundred feet away, which gives them the ability Sniper. Its other abilites are Hustle and very rarely, Moody. Remoraid may be a distant cousin of Magikarp and Feebas due to the fact all three are fish-like Pokémon that evolve into completely different sea-creatures. Using its dorsal fin as a suction pad, it clings to a Mantine's underside to scavenge for leftovers. Remoraid sucks in water, then expels it at high velocity using its abdominal muscles to shoot down flying prey. When evolution draws near, this Pokémon travels downstream from rivers.
“Hmm, good accuracy huh. Well if they hardly ever miss, then we got to watch out and not let it attack.” I said. “Though, that being the case, I might as well not try and dodge its attacks. I wanted to use Metroplex, my Wailord, but I didn’t feel she’d have enough room to work with.
“Alright, you’re up Mindbender.” I said, tossing a blue and green Pokeball in front of me. Out of the Pokeball emerged a green, humanoid shaped Pokémon with a ballroom like gown thing on. She looked down at the small Remoraid and nodded. “Just use Thunderbolt and Toxic, not going to plan much here.” She nodded and began creating the electricity around her body. I could see the greenish yellow electricity grow bigger and bigger each second. She then fired it with a swift movement of her hands.
After she used that move, she would begin using Toxic. Toxic was just a bunch of yak that she hacked up and spat all over the ground. The gunk would turn into puddles and the vapor would more than likely be inhaled by Remoraid, poisoning him. I was hoping that would work, but it wasn’t a big deal if it didn’t.
