    I don’t think I would have ever expected someone to try and use Sand Attack while in a cave, since most of them don’t have any loose dirt or anything for the attack to make use of. In this case there were really only small pebbles and the occasional patch of powdered rock from some heavy Pokemon or another moving through and crushing up smaller stones. Fortune must have been smiling on Eric; while most of these patches were covered in the quickly-hardening silk from Larvesta’s earlier String Shot, there was one that had escaped the assault. Ambipom happened to be next to it and used his tails to fling it at the incoming Larvesta.

    The fine powder, unlike real sand, didn’t have very much weight to it and therefore most of it just sort of hung in the air before falling gently towards the ground, but it succeeded in making a cloud that would obscure Larvesta’s vision for a moment. Bits of metal in the powder caught the light from Kilia’s Will-o-Wisp, and the resulting glare dazzled Larvesta’s dark-attuned eyes. She made a sort of squealing noise and ducked her head to protect her eyes from the harsh light reflecting from the metal particles, her horns aimed towards the floor instead of Ambipom.

    Since she was already airborne, though, there was no way for her to change her trajectory, and therefore she wasn’t forced to veer off-course like Eric had most likely wanted. Still, her Double-Edge would hurt much less if landed without the use of those sharp, hard horns, and hit it did. Not, however, before Ambipom inhaled and breathed out energy in the shape of stars; a Swift attack, probably a good idea what with the glittering dust cloud that would most likely hamper the vision of both battlers until it cleared. The energy used in a Swift attack was drawn towards the target; even if the user aimed in a completely opposite direction of their foe, it would still find the enemy by tracking their own unique energy patterns. It was a very complicated move most people didn’t understand the full mechanics of, but you didn’t need to know the exact science of how it worked to make the most use of it.

    The Swift hit Larvesta’s curled back, taking away a bit of her momentum seconds before she crashed into her larger opponent. Just as Ambipom’s attack hit her. Larvesta let out a shrill buzzing noise. Most others might think she was hurt or scared, but it was actually a scare tactic used by many Bugs to try and startle attackers. She was using a super-loud Bug Buzz, one made more effective by the close proximity of stone walls to let the sound reverberate. Kilia shifted, looking uncomfortable by the sound, and Kili whined as she covered her ears with her paws; Dark Pokemon, having a weakness to Bug attacks, were especially sensitive to the grating noise this particular move.

    Larvesta and Ambipom both tumbled to the ground after Larvesta’s Double-Edge, and when she hit the ground Larvesta’s Bug Buzz came to an abrupt stop. She landed on her back and wiggled for a moment before righting herself, facing Ambipom as he, too, got to his feet. She seemed to be taking a moment to regain her senses after her attack; despite her increased Defense, she had struck Ambipom with the softer lower half of her body instead of her powerful horns, and it seemed to have taken a bit more from her than expected. Still, she seemed hardy, so Eric had to think fast before she got herself back in the game.

    OOC: I'm gonna try to hammer this out in another two or so posts hopefully.

    This last exchange of moves was a really unusually one. Ambipom's Sand-Attack worked despite not having the easiest of ground to kick up. The move made a small cloud of dust which blocked Larvesta's sight to the point where it still didn't lose its course with Ambipom due to being in midair, but it wouldn't have it sight able to be fully on Ambipom, and so if its Double-Edge hit it should by all means have done slightly less damage than it probably should have. As I figured too the dust from the move didn't interfere with Swift working. Swift was a unique attack that had a pretty much impossible time missing, because it would hone in on a Pokemon's energy, the only way to make it really miss was to do something like hide behind a rock.

    However once Ambipom used Swift, Larvesta begun letting out a very shrill sound, a sound that was really painful on the ears.

    "Ah, what is that?" I said as I was covering my ears, trying my hardest to avoid hearing any noise. The sound had been vibrating all over the cave, the walls around had been making the noise bounce all around. The only moves that could be making a noise like this are Screech, or Bug Buzz, and since this was Larvesta using it it was no doubt Bug Buzz. I had never seen Bug Buzz used this way, it was being used to try to hold Ambipom in place so Double-Edge would hit, due to the dust being in Larvesta's face keeping it from getting a clear focus on Ambipom. Well Larvesta's plan was working effectively, the sound was so crippling it was causing Ambipom to hold still, and took on the Double-Edge. Though it was Larvesta's softer side was the part that hit Ambipom, and caused both Pokemon to come crashing down into the ground, and it did manage to hurt the little monkey Pokemon.

    "You feeling alright Ambipom? Or would you like to switch out?" I asked.

    It got back to its feet, turned to me, and grinned. I knew Ambipom wouldn't be so quick to ditch a battle just because it felt some pain. Though despite Ambipom's feelings towards a battle, if things got too bad out there I would not hesitate to switch it out. Though with the battle looking how it was currently Ambipom was still my best choice for battling. Starmie would be dealt with, and Aerodactyl would be too powerful. If anything this current situation reminded me of how the battle between Starmie, and Darumaka looked. Starmie was throwing everything it could at Darumaka besides the kitchen sink, and Darumaka was able to handle everything. Starmie nails it with Bubblebeam, and Darumaka is ready with Rollout. Starmie hits a Hydro Pump, and Darumaka counters with a Will-o-Wisp. Starmie tries to Waterfall, and Darumaka Yawns it. The only reason Starmie was even able to gain an upperhand was because Darumaka trapped itself underground. I didn't see Larvesta doing something similar like trapping itself in a corner, though, so there wouldn't be an opening for Ambipom. The only thing I could really do was try to outmaneuver it, and avoid anymore troublesome moves such as String Shot, and Harden.

    The real question now was though what should I do next? Should I have Ambipom attack Larvesta yet again, or should I just have Ambipom use a move to weaken Larvesta in a different sort of way? The battle was still kind of far from over, so in the long run it might have been better to have Ambipom use a non-attacking move, this way Larvesta could be made a bit easier to capture later on.

    "Okay, Ambipom, next use a Thunder Wave, and then follow that up with a Tickle!" I yelled to Ambipom who understood. That was the great thing with Ambipom, it wasn't too picky with what moves it was told to use, it was happy to be battling. That's what made me and Ambipom such great partners, because this gave me a chance to try out a bunch of different combos with it.

    Ambipom got into place, and it started to form a small blue ball of energy from its little arms. Ambipom had a unique way of doing Thunder Wave. It would form this little ball, and then it would toss it up in the air a little, and smack it at the opponent. This was how I trained Ambipom, because a Thunder Wave just by itself was rather easy to avoid, but by doing it this way the ball of energy would come towards the Pokemon, and at some point it would just explode, releasing the stored electrical waves from inside. This made the move much more unpredictable, which was my way of battling. I can think of a number of times when I had Ambipom be so unpredictable, including in past runs when it use Thunder Wave the same way it is now to halt an Aron's, a Vanillite's, as well as a Porygon's actions. Now, that didn't mean this would work perfectly on Larvesta just because it worked in the past, but I also wasn't the type to not have hope.

    There were three benefits behind using Thunder Wave; the first was of course just making the Pokemon paralyzed. This gave the opposing Pokemon a chance to be fully paralyzed, and unable to attack. While no one would ever really admit using Thunder Wave for this reason, it was a pretty big reason for using it. Especially if you used a Pokemon with a move that could flinch, such as using a Togekiss with Air Slash, and Serene Grace by its side. The second one was because it would greatly reduce any Pokemon's speed that it hit. This was the most common reason this move was used, if a somewhat slow Pokemon used it against a faster Pokemon the slower Pokemon would gain the edge on speed, while this was a pretty great reason to use it this was not why Ambipom was using it, it was already faster than Larvesta, and to top things off Ambipom had already boosted its speed, so there was no need to slow down Larvesta. The third, and final reason was one you only saw in battles with wild Pokemon, not ones between trainers. It was because it made Pokemon easier to capture. The added pressure from the par would make a Pokemon have a harder time to struggle escaping a ball, though while this didn't confirm a capture, it did always help. Thunder Wave was nothing short of a great strategy move no matter how it was used.

    After Thunder Wave was to come Tickle, another strategical move. The Pokemon using it, would literally run over to the opposing Pokemon, and would tickle their sides. The benefit of using this move was that it would reduce both the opponents Attack, and Defense by one stage a piece. If this worked it would mean Larvesta's Physical attacks would become weaker, and the boost it got from Harden would be gone, meaning Ambipom could use any Physical attack to its fullest again.

    Of course I could have probably been going kinda crazy, I mean I honestly didn't think Larvesta would sit still and be hit by both Thunder Wave, and Tickle, but I would have been happy had either one hit. It's just that right now I didn't want to take the chance of attacking Larvesta until I knew what it would be planning next, or until I at least had a little bit of time to think which attack would be best to use. I mean I didn't want to have Ambipom use an attack so powerful that it knocked Larvesta out, and at the same time I didn't want it using an attack so weak that Larvesta would just shrug the damage off.

    Ambipom finished creating its little ball of energy, and set its sights on Larvesta, who had still just been sitting there, no doubt watching to see what Ambipom was up to. I liked that, it proved Larvesta was a thinker, and took advantage of a situation if an opening arrived. If I had less confidence in Ambipom I would be worried, but I wasn't. Ambipom has proven to me time, and time again that it knows what to do, and it can withstand taking some hits. With the remains of String Shot still around in the cave things could get a little tricky, but I guess only time would show if that makes a major factor or not.

    Ambipom threw the ball in the air, and smacked it directly at Larvesta. Without wasting any time it started to race right behind the attack, either to try to Tickle Larvesta if it hit, or to follow Larvesta if it moved to Tickle it right after. That's what made Ambipom such a great Pokemon, it would use one move, and then be ready right away to use the next one. I was curious to see how Larvesta would respond, if it could manage to avoid one of these two moves, it surely couldn't avoid both right? Or maybe it couldn't avoid either, but either way I was about to find out.

    I had to say, Eric seemed to be doing better with this battle than he had done against Darumaka. I wasn’t sure if maybe he’d just gotten off to a bad start or what that had been about, but here he was using some pretty good tricks to get Larvesta where he wanted it in order to catch it. Larvesta might have been keeping its cool and reacting intelligently so far, but I had no doubt this would end with her capture.

    Ambipom, on Eric’s orders, formed a blue sphere of weak electrical energy, which he tossed into the air and smashed with his tail. The orb flew straight towards Larvesta, and Ambipom was hot on the heels of his attack. His tails curved over his head, the three flexible tips of each splayed and slightly curled. Thanks to the String Shot on the ground he had to dodge here and there to avoid them, which prevented him from building too much speed.

    Larvesta wasn’t simply just sitting there waiting to be attacked, though. As Ambipom had readied his Thunder Wave, she had slowly crawled to an area where Kilia’s Will-o-Wisp was shining the most light. She had then hunkered down and fluffed up the white fuzz covering the upper part of her body. By doing this she was absorbing heat from the orbs of fire, and that heat was then transferred from the hair to her body. Being part Fire, the heat would be used to heal minor injuries and restore a bit of her energy. I couldn’t deny that I was surprised; Larvesta couldn’t learn Morning Sun except through having it passed on to them from their father, and even then it really only did any good for a Pokemon who spent a lot of time out in the sunlight. But here this little Pokemon was, improvising with a move she most likely never used enough to really understand how to use it to its full potential.

    Unfortunately, Larvesta didn’t really have time to gain back a lot of health. Even though it had moved out of the path of the Thunder Wave for the most part, the orb suddenly exploded and released a pulse of electricity. While it wasn’t enough to inflict full paralysis, it was enough to cause Larvesta’s muscles to seize up temporarily as the wave reached her. Thanks to this, she had no way to evade or counter Ambipom when he reached her and instantly set to skittering the tips of his tails over Larvesta’s rigid body.

    Larvesta at first could only respond with a sort of stuttering “reeeeet” sound, but a few moments later she regained mobility. She started to twist and curl, at first too distracted by Ambipom’s Tickle to realize she could attack again. However, it was only a few seconds later before she started to convulse violently, throwing herself around haphazardly. At one point she threw her head up and caught Ambipom in the belly with two of her horns, knocking him away with her Thrashing.

    Thankfully, Ambipom’s Tickle had made Larvesta’s attack weaker thanks to reducing her strength a bit. Still, those horns were sharp and hard, and taking blow like that had winded the lavender-furred primate as well as doing a fair bit of damage. Still, it could have been a lot worse if Larvesta’s attack had been at full strength.

    Now the larvae was flailing about indiscriminately, bashing her horns into the cave wall and scraping her claws on the rocky ground, taking a bit of damage as she lashed out. She rolled back and forth, going over tiny sharp rocks and occasionally hitting a String Shot-free patch of powdered rock, filling the air with more fine dust as she did. I shot Dagger a look and he just shrugged, keeping a firm hold on Kili lest she grow too curious and get herself in the path of danger.

    “Be careful, Eric,” I told the young man, turning my gaze back to Larvesta. “She’s going to be doing that for a few minute, though it’s weird that she’d suddenly use a move like that when she’s been so levelheaded throughout the entire battle up until now…”

    As Ambipom fired off its Thunder Wave, Larvesta crawled its way over to an area where an orb from Will-o-Wisp was brightly shinning. It was just standing there, more or less motionless, the only movement it really did with to put the white fuzzy half of its body directly in the lights view. I couldn't help but wonder what exactly was Lavresta doing; was this just a tactical decoy? Was Larvesta planning some sort of attack. Was it trying to use the light in some way? Or did it just happen to lose its mind? Sometimes the actions of Pokemon really confused me, and this was definitely one of those times. Larvesta was doing something, but I didn't know what, and if I hadn't given Ambipom some pretty specific commands that it was following, it would have driven me nuts.

    Larvesta did manage to move itself out of the way of the ball of the Thunder Wave, but it couldn't entirely avoid it, and so when it exploded some of the waves from inside did manage to hit the bug, causing it to become like it was paralyzed for a few moments. Because of this it had no way to avoid what Ambipom was doing next. Ambipom used the tips of its tails like fingers to tickle Larvesta all over from top to bottom, and on its sides.

    Larvesta couldn't help but let out some noise I couldn't understand, but if I had to guess it was either like a laugh due to the tickling, or a cry of pain from being tickled so much that it actually hurt. Either way Tickle seemed to be doing its job on Larvesta, weakening the creature. While Ambipom was continuing to use Tickle though, Larvesta had become able to start attacking again. It was only mere moments later that Larvesta violently begun to throw its body around like it didn't care. It was as if it didn't care anymore what its fate was, it just wanted to beat Ambipom. At some point during this time Larvesta headbutted Ambipom right in its stomach, causing two of its horns to jab it. If Ambipom had been weaker at this time it could have very well been stabbed by, or somewhat impaled by its horns.

    Ambipom couldn't help but hold its stomach, and roll around on the ground for a few moments. Even if Larvesta had its attack reduced, its horns were still sharp, and painful, and Ambipom was going to be in a world of hurt for a few minutes. But I would be too if I just had my stomach hit by sharp horns.

    Even though Ambipom was hit, Larvesta was going kind of crazy. It was bashing its horns against the cave walls, it clawed at the ground. It started rolling all over the ground, rolling back and forth on rocks, and making dust rise up into the air. I thought it really did lose its mind. Maybe Ambipom hit it one too many times in its head. Or maybe this just had something to do with Larvesta's last attack.

    “Be careful, Eric,” Sara told me. “She’s going to be doing that for a few minutes, though it’s weird that she’d suddenly use a move like that when she’s been so levelheaded throughout the entire battle up until now…” She too thought this was weird. It was weird because now Larvesta was acting so uncharacteristically compared to how it had been acting throughout this battle.

    "Yeah, well I have that way with people, and Pokemon, I make them go crazy," I said to Sara chuckling. Though this really was no laughing matter, Ambipom couldn't get too close or Larvesta would no doubt get it with some more damage, but at the same time Ambipom only had a few distance moves such as Swift, which Larvesta already saw, or Seed Bomb, which would not only be useless vs Larvesta, but it'd be useless here too, because there was no soft enough ground to kick them on.

    "Guess my only hope really is close combat at this point," I said to myself. "Okay Ambipom, your body is still probably relatively fresh with electricity from Thunder Wave, so that means using this won't be too hard. Use ThunderPunch Ambipom!" I commanded the monkey, who seemed more than glad to do so.

    Due to only using Thunder Wave, Ambipom's body was use to having the feeling electricity flowing through it, so now Ambipom wouldn't have to work long at all to charge up the attack. Ambipom threw its right tail behind its head, and made it into a fist as best it could. While most Pokemon would use a punching type attack with their hands, Ambipom was trained to use them with its tails, because due to being larger in size they would cause a bigger impact than its tiny arms.

    Electricity started to surge now in Ambipom's tail, and it started to turn a bright shade of yellow, with mini waves of electrical power circulating all around the "fist" of the tail. ThunderPunch was a move similar to how it sounded. An aura similar to the one from the move Thunder would move around the users fist, and then the would charge over to the opponent, look for an opening, whether it was the head or the body, and punch the opposing releasing any stored up electricity in the punch, and causing to flow all around the Pokemon's body.

    ThunderPunch was great, because maybe if I was lucky, this added with the partial paralyzing from Thunder Wave, Larvesta would become fully paralyzed. While that would have been great, because it might have protect Ambipom from Lavesta's outburst, it wasn't my true aim right now. All I was trying to do was weaken Larvesta a little more. It still had a tiny while of time before it was capturable, and I was just trying to calmly taking the battle one step at a time. I was just hoping that using a close combat move like this one wouldn't backfire on me because of Larvesta's current mood. One thing was for sure though, whether it was Ambipom, or Larvesta, neither Pokemon was going to hold back, and wasn't going to quit until the other was down for the count.

    I smiled a little at Eric’s comment about driving people and Pokemon crazy but didn’t let it distract me from the battle going on. Things were getting a little dangerous here with Larvesta’s Thrashing; the Pokemon was gripped by temporary madness as it bucked about left and right. If things got too bad I’d have to step in until they calmed down a bit, so for now I was more focused on the Pokemon battling than anything Eric was saying.

    That’s not to say I was ignoring him, though, and heard him talking to himself as he tried to decide what to do next. Ambipom weren’t very good at using Special attacks, but other than Seed Bomb, all the long-range moves they could use were Special. Seed Bomb wasn’t the most practical move to use on a Pokemon that was times-four resistant to Grass moves, though, and eventually Eric decided on Thunderpunch as the move of choice. It was a risky choice, but probably one of the best things for Ambipom to do at the moment. With any luck, Larvesta would be paralyzed by the abundance of electricity passed to her by the attack; not only would it make her easier to catch, but it could also prevent her from doing more damage to both Ambipom or herself.

    Ambipom charged at Larvesta after preparing his attack, not flinching away even when the fiery larvae whipped around toward him. She wasn’t aiming for him, but it was bad luck for Ambipom all the same. The lavender-furred Pokemon was forced to swerve in an ungainly manner to avoid getting gored, nearly stepping in a mound of String Shot. Only by dumb luck did he manage to stumble a few inches to the left of it, barely missing it and taking himself out of range of Larvesta’s mad flailing.

    Not wasting a moment, Ambipom made use of his off-balance momentum and threw himself at Larvesta, his tail whipping around and catching a solid blow on her left side. Larvesta made a loud screeching noise as the attack struck, and instinct kicked in as she stopped Thrashing and curled her body, reeling away from Ambipom. At the same time she was drawing herself together, though, Ambipom’s lunge carried him into a head-on collision. His forehead smacked into Larvesta’s horns as she tucked her head in close to her stomach; thankfully, he didn’t hit the sharp points, but rather the blunt fronts of the three adorning the top of Larvesta’s skull. All the same. Ambipom lay stunned for a moment after the impact before getting to his feet and taking a few stumbling steps away from Larvesta.

    Who was now silent and curled on the cave floor, looking like a really big dead larvae. At first I thought she might have been knocked out or possibly injured, but then I noticed a very faint field of crackling blue-yellow electricity dancing over the Pokemon’s body. By some miracle, Ambipom’s Thunderpunch had not only inflicted true paralysis on Larvesta this time, but the Bug’s muscles were seized up because of the electricity coursing through her body. It was a good thing, too; too much more Thrashing and Larvesta would have either knocked Ambipom her herself out.

    “Looks like this is about over,” I commented to no one in particular. “Larvesta doesn’t have much fight left in her after that Thunderpunch, and now she has to deal with being Paralyzed on top of it.”

    OOC: Let's hope for the best

    IC: This last exchange was far from a pretty sight. Ambipom hit Larvesta on its left side, causing the Bug-type to let out a very loud screech, signaling it was in a lot of pain. I didn't think that Thunderpunch would have packed that much of an impact, but then again this could have just been due to the fact that Larvesta was already weak, either way though worked. This was both good, and bad. It was good because Ambipom got a great shot in on Larvesta weakening it, but it was also bad because his own momentum sent him flying right into Larvesta's horns. While he may not have hit the sharp points of the horns, Ambipom was still hit by them, and he was on the ground for a few moments, before getting back up and trying to shake the damage off. Ambipom was fine, or at least okay enough to the point where it could keep fighting. How was Larvesta though? I had to wonder, I mean it didn't look like it willingly attacked Ambipom, but was rather just trying to protect itself, and nurse its own wounds. No matter what though you could see Larvesta had either lost the desire to fight due to injuries, and just wanted it to end, or it was just too distracted by the pain to mount an offense.

    I looked over at Larvesta, and at first I was a little worried. It hadn't been moving at all; I feared that Ambipom had used too much power, and knocked it out. Though within a few moments I noticed some electricity sparking around Larvesta's body. This meant two things, one Larvesta wasn't knocked out, because a knocked out Pokemon shows no signs like that, it just lays there, and two, Ambipom had managed to score paralysis on Larvesta. This was great news, because now Larvesta would not only be easier to capture, but because it also managed to stop its Thrash attack too, and that was good for Ambipom.

    “Looks like this is about over. Larvesta doesn’t have much fight left in her after that Thunderpunch, and now she has to deal with being Paralyzed on top of it," Sara said. She was probably right I felt, but still this Larvesta gave me a lot of trouble, so it was possible that it could still break free of whatever ball I threw at it. Now wasn't the time for doubts though, because even if I attacked Larvesta again it could easily be too much at this point, and I'd render it unable to be caught. I needed to risk it, and just toss a ball.

    "You did great Ambipom, now you sit back and rest a little, and I'll handle the rest of this," I said, as I patted Ambipom on the head. He had done a great job, but now the rest of this was all up to. Larvesta was still on the ground, having a hard time trying to move. Now was the best chance I had at a capture attempt. I quickly took off my backpack, and threw it to the ground. I then started to rummage through it, passing by a lot of various items as I looked for a ball.

    "Ah there's one," I said as I pulled out an unused Park Ball. In theory a Park Ball could very well capture Larvesta, because it didn't evolve from anything, but still Larvesta was a pretty hard Pokemon to capture, so I needed to do everything possible to make a capture likely. "No this won't do, I'll need to swap it from something different. Let's use this instead," I said now, as I took out a Hyper Ball. By using a Hyper Ball instead of a regular Park Ball the chance of catching Larvesta would slightly increase, even if it was only a one percent increase it was better than nothing, and I was more than happy to take that bonus.

    I set my sights on Larvesta, kissed the Hyper Ball, and said "come on baby, work please." And with this I threw the empty ball at Larvesta, crossed my fingers, and hoped for the best. Larvesta put up an incredibly tough fight, and made me try new things with Ambipom to battle it. It pushed Ambipom's limits far, and managed to deal some very high damage to the purple monkey. This was a battle I knew I wouldn't easily forget, and there was one thing I knew, I wanted to have this Larvesta, because it would not only be a powerful addition to my collection of Pokemon, but it would become a good friend too.

    OOC: Sorry I didn't get this up for you yesterday like I said I would, I had to go shopping and didn't get home till around 5 (like 3 hours after I usually go to bed lol). I was going to post earlier today but then I got sidetracked by an application that took like THREE FREAKING HOURS to fill out @__@...Anyways, here's da posteh ^^.

    Eric threw a Hyper Ball at Larvesta while she was gripped by paralysis; the orb smacked against her side and popped open, letting out a flood of red light that engulfed the larvae. It then broke her physical form down to a form of energy, which was then drawn into the orb. After this it clicked shut and fell to the ground, where it rocked for a few seconds before falling still.

    Larvesta was captured.

    I smiled a little and walked to the Hyper Ball, bending down to retrieve it as Dagger let Kili down. The little fox flounced over to Kilia, barking excitedly at her and hopping in erratic circles. Kilia, always the somewhat…eccentric…one, started to bounce around as well, acting as silly and puppyish as Kili was. She yipped and waved her blade-like tail merrily through the air, causing Dagger to shake his head and grumble a little. I chuckled and faced Eric as I added Larvesta’s Ball to Darumaka’s.

    “Good job. It’s nice to see when people can catch some things they’re interested in. I remember one time I led this older collector through the Park. He was so obsessed with finding things like Ninetales, Arcanine, and Volcarona…the only thing he encountered the whole time was a slew of Geodude, Sandshrew, and Magby. I felt kind of bad for him. By the time it was over he was so dejected that I couldn’t help but refer him to the special adoption center we’re partnered with. Normally only breeders or specially trained individuals get the referrals for that place, but during the run I’d learned the old guy was more than qualified to care for some of the rarer, more exotic Pokemon. You shoulda seen his face when I gave recommendation for him to get a Volcarona. I thought he was gonna kiss me, which was why I stayed well out of his reach until he was gone.”

    I chuckled a little at the memory of the collector, then waved a hand at nothing in particular to encompass the whole of the mountain we were in.

    “You, however, will most certainly not need a referral to an adoption center to get some choice Pokemon. You’ve got two promising ones already, and the best thing is you still have a good number of encounters left to find something else nice to round out your captures. I suppose the important question now is if you want to keep checking out the cave system or if you want to head back out onto the exterior path.”

    Larvesta had been captured, and then Sara began to ramble on about some story of capturing rare Pokemon, and some old man. “Good job. It’s nice to see when people can catch some things they’re interested in. I remember one time I led this older collector through the Park. He was so obsessed with finding things like Ninetales, Arcanine, and Volcarona…the only thing he encountered the whole time was a slew of Geodude, Sandshrew, and Magby. I felt kind of bad for him.

You shoulda seen his face when I gave recommendation for him to get a Volcarona. I thought he was gonna kiss me, which was why I stayed well out of his reach until he was gone.”

    I laughed a little and said, "well, that was a pretty amusing story, especially since I ran into a Magby, and Sandslash on this run. But hey, don't worry, just cause I caught a Larvesta it doesn't mean I'll come near you, so no need to worry about me." After telling this to Sara, I went over to check up on Ambipom.

    "Hey, you doing okay?" I asked, and Ambipom replied, but sounded a bit weak. "Heh, you did wonderful, but you're weak now, so why don't you spend some time resting in your ball," I said as I returned Ambipom to its Pokeball.

    “You, however, will most certainly not need a referral to an adoption center to get some choice Pokemon. You’ve got two promising ones already, and the best thing is you still have a good number of encounters left to find something else nice to round out your captures. I suppose the important question now is if you want to keep checking out the cave system or if you want to head back out onto the exterior path,” Sara told me.

    "I don't really mind either way, see I'm not all that picky, plus I have trouble on deciding things. So, if its alright with you I'd like to leave the decision of what we do next up to you, because no matter what I'm sure we'll find Pokemon either way."

    I nodded and waved to the others, motioning for them to follow me. Kilia took the lead, lighting our way with her ghostly Will-o-Wisp. The eerie light pointed out pitfalls and other dangers I was familiar with, as we as a startling new one that would NOT have been fun to find out about any other way.

    A huge fissure had split open down the middle of the wide tunnel we were currently in, leaving only four or so feet of space on either side of the rift. I could hear a metallic scuttling coming from the chasm; closely approaching the edge of the rend, I peered inside and saw dozens of large gray bodies hurriedly scurrying back and forth. Recently, the Durant population that had somehow ended up in the Botanic Garden had been moved back to their natural habitat, and despite the threat of their natural predators Heatmor, the steel ants seemed quite happy to be back in familiar territory. They’d been busy building new nests and tunnels, and it seemed like a large colony had chosen this giant tear in the ground as the starting point of a new nest. The fissure itself had most likely been created by an Onix or Steelix that had surfaced here.

    I watched as the Durant busily carried large chunks of rock to the top of the rift, which they secured in place by chewing the edges of the boulders until their saliva turned the powdery stone into a sort of glue. It was important they get the gaping gash in the ground sealed fast, before any Heatmor discovered the new colony. They were working quickly, though, and I had no doubt they’d be done soon. One looked up at me and clicked its oversized mandibles, but other than that they didn’t seem at all bothered by my presence.

    I moved from the rift and we cautiously moved our way around it; I would be lying if I said I wasn’t relieved when we were clear of it. As soon as the Durant finished repairing the hole it would be safe to walk over, as the glue made by their rock-chewing was one of the strongest, durable materials in the natural world. I glanced back and saw a few of the large metal ants poking their heads out of the hole, watching us leave for a moment before getting back to their task.

    I was getting ready to comment on the whole episode when I heard a faint snarl in front of us to the left. Kilia instantly turned to face that location, pumping more energy into her Will-o-Wisp to make it stronger and brighter. About three yards away I saw the source of the noise; a Garchomp, and a young one at that. Only about three-quarters the size of a fully-grown Garchomp, the navy-scaled landshark was glaring at us and swinging its tail through the air menacingly. Its thick, broad snout was partially open as a growl rumbled from its throat, and the single giant claws on each paw were raised in a threatening manner. For whatever reason, the Pokemon was in an obviously aggressive mood. Whether it was defending food, territory, a mate, or something else wasn’t clear, but it was conveying a clear message that we should move on.

    I glanced at Eric, then back at the Garchomp. There wasn’t any physical indication that it was protecting something, so my bet was that it was either just in a bad mood, or wanted us to leave its personal patch of the mountain. Either way, an angry Garchomp could be dangerous, so they had to be dealt with carefully. I looked back at Eric while keeping Garchomp in my peripheral, speaking in a low voice to avoid further agitating the Pokemon.

    “If you’ve ever wanted a Garchomp now might be a good time to try and snag one, if you don’t mind tangling with one that’s having a bit of a temper tantrum.”

    OOC: There was no need to bring Durant into this situation!

    IC: Sara started to lead me along the way again, with Absol taking the lead, lighting the way with Will-o-Wisp. It wasn't long before we ran into trouble though; the ground in front of us split. Sara looked in, so I followed suit and looked in too. In that ground had been a swarm of Durant, tunneling around in the ground, no doubt to avoid Heatmor. Recently though the Durant migrated from the Botanic Gardens, here to Mount Deckbi. It was almost as if the Durant were actually forced to move here so that Heatmor could go to eat them, I know this would anger someone I knew named Neon very much so. It was like if I was in the woods and I saw a Fearow going to eat an Aipom, or Ambipom, I'd be pretty angry at that Fearow, and have my Ambipom defeat it in a battle. But I wasn't going to worry about that now, and nor was I going to currently worry about these Durant, and a Heatmor, because even if the Durant ran into a Heatmor, there is more than enough of them here to overpower one.

    The Durant had finished, and so we continued to walk along the way, but before we got far I heard a snarl. From the darkness came forth a Pokemon closely resembling that of a shark in ways, or perhaps even a jet. It was dark blue in color, but had red going from its midsection, to its mouth, and under that it had a gold diamond shape, some fins, as well as razor sharp claws, and its horns resembled that of a jets. It was a Garchomp, a very rare and powerful Pokemon indeed.

    “If you’ve ever wanted a Garchomp now might be a good time to try and snag one, if you don’t mind tangling with one that’s having a bit of a temper tantrum,” Sara said to me.

    "No thanks. Nothing personal against Garchomp, but I already own one, I just didn't bring it with me. Plus I don't think she'd be too happy if I brought another Garchomp home, I doubt she'd get along with it. So, that being said, I'll just snap a picture of this one," I said to Sara, as I pulled the camera out that I had used earlier. Garchomp was rare, so a picture of it would get me a decent amount of money, though not as much as Reshiram's picture would, and it would also help me to get out of battling this Garchomp. I set the camera perfectly so that Garchomp's whole body could be see, and snapped a picture of it.

    Thanks to already having a Garchomp, Eric decided against try to catch this one. I couldn’t say I blamed him, as only either very confident or very foolish Trainers would battle a Garchomp for no reason, even a young one like this. Instead, the young man opted to take a picture of the dark-scaled Pokemon, snapping a photo of it for later. When the flash went off it startled the Dragon, causing it to snarl in surprise before darting off into the shadows.

    We continued on, and I took us down a tunnel that would lead back out to the exterior path. This high up it became traversable again, so it wouldn’t be a problem to continue outside. Along the way I pointed out various Pokemon that were hanging back or simply watching us pass by. A Charmeleon looked like it would give us trouble at one point, but it scurried off after nearly being knocked over by a powerful Aqua Jet from Dagger. The sea weasel then had to chase his daughter down, as she was trying to mimic her father’s attack.

    Eventually the tunnel widened out into a large, spacious cave, with the mouth of it about twenty feet from us. I was getting ready to comment on heading back to the outer path when I spotted movement out of my peripheral vision to the left. Without thinking I instinctively looked over, not expecting anything more than a Sandshrew or something that was foraging for food. As I was turning my head, though, a stray beam of light from Kilia’s Will-o-Wisp reflected harshly off whatever was moving. Even before I saw what was there I had a feeling that things were potentially about to go downhill.

    A massive Steelix was curled up not ten feet from us, its entire body clad in bright silver steel. If it hadn’t been in the deepest shadows of the cave it would have been spotted the instant we entered the area. The metal serpent was stirring from either a nap or a long sleep, its body beginning to uncurl as it woke. The movement I’d seen had been its tail twitching and flicking back and forth. Its large head was currently facing us, and even as I watched, its yellow eyes slowly slid open.

    For a moment it didn’t do anything other than blink and continue to shift its large body, making a grating, metallic squealing noise as the different parts of its long body rubbed against each other. Eventually it had itself uncurled and rose a good fifteen feet of itself into the air. It opened its wide jaws, revealing huge, blunt teeth as it yawned. It then closed its maw and cocked its head down at us, rumbling in its chest. Thankfully it seemed more curious than annoyed; there were plenty of Pokemon who wouldn’t appreciate waking up to humans staring at them.

    “I think this would be a good time to decide whether you want to fight this behemoth or if we should run screaming,” I told Eric, smiling just a little. Running and screaming wouldn’t get us far if this gargantuan Pokemon should decide to turn aggressive, but I had a feeling it wouldn’t come to that.

    OOC: Hey its like I said on AIM last night, don't rush posting, you'll get to it when you do.

    IC: Garchomp took over after its picture was snapped, and once again we were on our way. As we continued walking, Sara pointed out some Pokemon who seemed to just be sitting back and watching things. Most notable was a Charmeleon, but before anything happened, Sara's Floatzel gave it what for, and knocked it over with an Aqua Jet, causing it to leave. I didn't mind though, we hadn't exactly been passing anything I wanted that was looking to battle, though it wasn't much longer before we ran into a new Pokemon, one that could have easily been trouble.

    A few feet in front of us was a curled up Pokemon. It was silver in color, and seemed to resemble a massive snake. It was a dual type Steel/Ground Pokemon, that, if used right, could prove to be a very dangerous Pokemon indeed. It was Steelix, a commonly underrated, yet very powerful Pokemon. It seemed like we had disturbed it from its sleep, however it looked like it was more curious than it was angry, as most Pokemon, or myself, would be if our sleep had been interrupted. It opened up its mouth wide, and let out a pretty big yawn, before looking back at us. It was a shame that I didn't have a Pokemon on me with a sleep inducing move, otherwise I'd use it to help Steelix get back to sleep.

    “I think this would be a good time to decide whether you want to fight this behemoth or if we should run screaming,” Sara said to me with a small smile on her face. I could tell she was only kidding, as she tried to make the best of this situation. She must have known that battling a Steelix would be pretty hard work. Besides I hadn't been planning on going for a Steelix anyway, because before this whole thing started I sprayed a Rock-type repellent so I would avoid Rock-types, such as Onix, the pre-evolved form of a Steelix.

    "No thanks," I said to Sara. "Running and screaming isn't exactly what I feel like doing, well, maybe if I scream enough my hair will turn golden, and grow long, but otherwise I have no interest in doing such a thing. I will, however take a picture of this Steelix," I said, as I once again took my camera out. It had been getting a lot of use this trip, this was the third Pokemon I aimed to take a picture of. Steelix was a rare Pokemon, just as rare as Garchomp was, so it would easily be a valuable picture. I set my sights on Steelix, and took its picture.

    Eric was not only catching a few good Pokemon on his run, but he was going to make a nice amount of money from it as well. Already there’d been three Pokemon for him to take pictures of, and though a photo of neither Garchomp or Steelix could compare with the Reshiram snapshot, they’d go for more than enough to the right collector. I watched as Steelix shook its mighty body after the camera went off, then lowered back to the ground and slowly made its way down the tunnel we’d come from. Most likely it was going off to find a snack after waking up.

    After Steelix departed, I led our group out onto the exterior path of the mountain. It twisted around and out of sight about five feet ahead, and though it was covered with a fine coating of ash, it was still clearly level and not covered with rocks and boulders like farther down.

    I was ready to make a comment about the path further up, but at that moment fate decided to yet again not give me the chance to speak. A din of barking and high-pitching yipping was the only warning we had before several small orange canines came rushing into view from around the corner ahead of us. Each one had numerous jagged black stripes on its body and legs; thick, cream-colored fur made up their manes and tails. They were frolicking happily as they approached, but when they noticed us the lot of them froze for a moment. They then did an abrupt about-face, dashing back the way they’d come.

    All except one.

    The single Growlithe stared at us for a moment, obviously curious. It sniffed at us and took a cautious step forward, cocking its head as its gaze flicked between each of us. Clearly this little Pokemon was more interested in us than scared of us, which made a good opportunity for Eric to add a third Pokemon to his collection.

    “These Growlithe are too old to still be staying with their mother,” I told Eric. “Most likely they’re siblings from the same litter, remaining together for the next few months before splitting up to find a bit of their own territory to claim. This one’s at the perfect age to catch if you’ve ever wanted an Arcanine.”

    Steelix took off after I snapped its picture. It went down the way we had came, and it was out of sight before I knew it. We didn't wait around long though, Sara started leading me along once more. She led me out onto an exterior part of the mountain. It twisted for a few feet, and was covered by ash, but it didn't appear as though it was going to be hard to move around, because it did look rock free. Sara looked as though she was about to say something, but was then cut off. What cut her off was a group of puppy like Pokemon, barking at us. They all had orange colored fur, with black stripes on various spots of their body, as well as some of their body being cream in color, particularly their tails, bellies, and the fur on the top of their heads. It was a group of Growlithe. Upon noticing us though they ran back the way they came, well all but one did. One stuck around, and it seemed pretty interested in us.

    “These Growlithe are too old to still be staying with their mother,” I told Eric. “Most likely they’re siblings from the same litter, remaining together for the next few months before splitting up to find a bit of their own territory to claim. This one’s at the perfect age to catch if you’ve ever wanted an Arcanine," Sara said to me.

    "Well, I'm not entirely sure I want a Growlithe. I mean I do want a Growlithe, but at the same time something I want more could be out there waiting for me, but nothing else I want could still be out there. Well, I guess its a good thing I brought some extra balls on this trip, so yes I'll battle this Growlithe then," I said to Sara as I pulled out one of my Pokeballs. It should have been no surprise which Pokemon I'd be using, it was the only one who hadn't seen any action on this trip until now.

    "You're up Aerodactyl," I said, as the dual Rock/Flying-type Pokemon emerged from its Pokeball. Aerodactyl was a pretty rare Pokemon, one of the rarest actually, mainly due to the fact that they were nearly extinct in the wild, and finding an Old Amber took a ton of luck. Aerodactyl wasn't exactly the most powerful, or durable Pokemon out there, but it was certainly one of the fastest, and due to its half Rock-type it was a good choice to use right now. The question I had to ask though, is what should I do? I didn't want to use a move that would cause a lot of damage to the area, or cause the ground under me to collapse, but at the same time I wanted to damage Growlithe, without damaging it too much.

    "Alright Aerodactyl, start off with a Hone Claws, then follow up by using Wing Attack," I commanded Aerodactyl. I didn't want to start off too powerful, because that wasn't my style, I just needed to start with something decent, and this worked to me.

    First up came Hone Claws, the Pokemon that used this move would sharpen their claws, or the equivalent of claws if they didn't have claws. Doing this would raise the users Attack stat, as well as their Accuracy, by one stage each. This was good a good way to boost attack, and make some harder moves more likely to hit too. It was strange though, you'd think rather than call the move Hone Claws, they'd call it something like Claw Sharpen since the claws do sharpen, but hey what did I know. Whenever this was done Aerodactyl was going to use Wing Attack. It was a pretty basic move that sounded the way it looked. The user would fly over at the opponent, and smack them with their wings. For a while it was the most common Flying-type move with Aerial Ace. Wing Attack wasn't exactly Aerodactyl's best attack, but provided that Hone Claws worked Aerodactyl would have boosted attack, and factoring the STAB it would get from Wing Attack, Aerodactyl could pack a decent first punch.

    I didn't know what Growlithe was going to do, but whatever it did do I'd base my next attack off of that. One thing was for sure though, I didn't want to use any Ground-type moves, and unless I had no other choice but to, I didn't want to use any Rock-type moves either. It wasn't that I was afraid of Aerodactyl doing too much damage to Growlithe, I just didn't want this area to get damaged, and especially not while Sara, along with her Pokemon would be at risk.

    Eric sent out his final Pokemon, Aerodactyl, to take on Growlithe. He started with a Hone Claws, most likely aiming for a boost in accuracy rather than power; Aero was to follow up with a Wing Attack. The stone pteradon wasted no time carrying out his orders, lunging into the air with a caw and dragging his deadly talons against one another. Bits of old claw sheath fell away, revealing fresh, sharper claw underneath. Doing a sort of midair flip, he also honed the claws on each wing.

    Growlithe wasn’t just going to stand around and let Aero dominate the battle, though. It threw back its head as Aero flew around above it, letting out a throaty howl to raise its own fighting spirit. The howl echoed around us, and further up the trail I heard some kind of Pokemon scurrying away, startled by the fierce sound.

    Aero, too, was startled by the noise. Flipping right-side up, the ancient Pokemon eyed his howling adversary for a moment before suddenly folding his wings and diving; whether he wanted to stop Growlithe’s Howl or was just prepared to strike, I couldn’t tell. Either way, Growlithe stopped its attack soon after Aero decided to use his next one, and what happened next surprised me.

    Growlithe was still looking up when its Howl ended and instantly spotted Aero plummeting towards it; barking loudly, the little dog crouched down for a moment as the air around it started to waver and dance. Then, quite abruptly, flames erupted from the small Pokemon’s body and engulfed it in a blazing, white-hot inferno. By this time Aero had dropped low enough to snap his wings open in preparation to strike, but Growlithe’s sudden Flare Blitz shocked the dual-typed Pokemon and caused him to veer slightly off-course.

    The result was Growlithe leaping toward Aero, its momentum carrying it towards Aero’s outstretched left wing. Flaming body and rock-hard wing collided with enough force to send a loud crack reverberating through the air, and both Pokemon were thrown from each other by the blow. Growlithe hit the ground and rolled, while Aero was knocked to the ground and sent tumbling; he barely managed to regain his wits and dig his claws into the ground to stop himself before disappearing over the edge of the path. Ash and small loose bits of stone were pushed over the edge, falling dozens of feet to the ground below.

    “Close,” I breathed as a shaken Growlithe got to its paws, shaking its head and clearly dazed. Aero seemed to be better off, though he, too, appeared somewhat stunned by what had just happened. He raised his wings and hissed in defiance at his opponent, a little unsteady but recovering faster than Growlithe was.

    “That took quite a bit out of Growlithe for it being the first turn of the battle,” I commented. “Hopefully we won’t have any further near misses like that one, since our little furry friend will most likely be lacking the power for such another powerful attack. All the same I’d be careful; the Pokemon here are proving to be a lot more resourceful and creative than normal.”
