Ranger Ivy Frost
Ryan didn't seem to notice the Venonat starting up an attack, instead going for a plan of his own. He called out for the fish to first use Rain Dance, probably with the theory that it would let Qwilfish move a little better and maybe strengthen some of his water attacks if he used more.
Then he told the Qwilfish he was going to throw him up into the air again and for him to use Aqua Tail on the way down. Ivy wasn't sure what to make of his plans. Sure, it was good to use techniques you knew how to, but using the same ones many times in a row would increase the chance of the wild Pokémon catching on to what they were doing. Then it could form some sort of counter attack.
The Qwilfish hopped back and forth and flopped his tail up and down as he tried to call the rain. It took a minute, which made the Ranger nervous about the still-jumping pools of poison, but eventually water started to drip from the sky. It came down a little harder then, in a steady pattering that dotted the ground dark. The poison pools quieted a little as far as the popping went, but she could still see pockets being churned by some force beneath them, almost like there was an electric current or something making them jump.
Ryan picked up his fish carefully and threw him up into the air again, still being careful to avoid the poison points. Then Ivy watched him pull out a Park Ball and prepare to throw it. He was going to try and capture the little bug after all.
The fish sailed up into the air, and Ivy saw the water form around his tail again. He came back down due to gravity and the rules of flight, and the water rushed with him. Venonat shook her head, looking less groggy than she had before. The rain probably helped clear her mind a little more after the psychic purge. She was looking at the pools of poison around her, not paying much attention to Qwilfish.
Right before she was hit, the pools jumped like they'd be electrocuted from the other end. They splashed toward Venonat with a large force, probably to get through the rain that was washing them away. Qwilfish came down hard, aided by the rain and because he didn't shrink this time. He bounced off Venonat, going back toward Ryan.
Venonat stumbled and fell down to the ground, breathing hard. Ivy didn't know how much more she could take. If Ryan didn't capture soon, she was going to be in danger of being knocked out.
Luckily, the Trainer threw his ball. Venonat was too weak to respond to it, so it snapped shut and locked with a ping.
Slowly the rain stopped, and Ivy was glad to see it washing most of the chemicals away. She'd check back here when this run was over just to be sure, but the rest would probably just soak into the ground and not harm anyone or anything. She went over to the downed ball and picked it up, pocketing it with Mankey.
“Alright,” she said, looking at Ryan. “Where to next? There's a path out of here, leading into more bamboo-like paths-” she said, pointing to the other side of the small clearing, “-or we can head back the way we came and continue down one of those paths.” Then she waited for his answer.
