    (OOC: speed+4 only counters par speed drop in the game)


    Two things now distracted me, the fact that Siless’ Gardevoir had opened its own ball, and the fact that the Scizor seemed capable of getting through Team Forretress Two’s Iron Defence. This didn’t exactly make me happy due to the next phase of my plan being identical to the previous two.

    I watched the Gardevoir, whose name I didn’t know, Teleport over to the Scythers, obviously it was ready to step in if they got aggressive towards us. Siless also reminded me that the Scizor could not be caught with a regular park ball. I’d forgotten this fact and was slightly worried. I only had four attempts at catching it before I had to start running around and collecting fallen park balls, not really my idea of a good time.

    The Scizor was obviously angry at me and really didn’t want to let me get away. I wasn’t exactly planning on getting away though, at least not without the Scizor for company. The Scyther pride obviously echoed their leaders feeling, all except the ones with visions of being leader themselves.

    The blade fighting going on over the other side of the field was spectacular, none of the Scyther wanted to give up the eminent position of pride leader, and why would they, as far as I was aware, the Scizor in a Scyther pride has a pretty easy time of it, only really doing anything when the pride was in danger.

    That was why the Scyther was dangerous to me, its life revolved around being prepared for fights and being ready to protect its pride. Luckily for me, many of my Pokémon worked for me in my gym, their life also revolved around fights. I didn’t know if the Scizor enjoyed fighting, but presumably it did, why else would it not send someone else to test the waters first?

    The fact that is seemed to enjoy fighting made me happy, I didn’t want to make a Pokémon fight against its will and with the Scizor, I probably wouldn’t have to.

    Thinking back to how simple the Slakoth battle had been, how easy it was to catch, I realised that I had underestimated wild Pokémon. I’d gotten through that battle without even getting properly attacked once, this time, I was facing a Pokémon who would do anything to win, who seemed to know a lot about battle tactics and was willing to use that knowledge to help himself.

    There I went assuming again, I didn’t actually know the Scizor’s gender yet, for all I knew it was a female. I’d have to find out after I captured it, and capture it I would, if it was the last thing I ever did in the park.
    During my extended discussion with myself, Team Forretress Two’s Iron defence had been bleeding from the bright yellow it had been, through to a deep crimson. The crimson had run through the sheen like dye through water, slowly seeping from a point just above Team Forretress Two’s eyes, now it would be even harder to hit with physical attacks.

    I was waiting for the Scizor to attack now, and to attack hard, or maybe I’d get some benefit from that paralysis that I’d inflicted on it earlier in the battle.

    OOC: It's supposed to help a bit :P If the battle is too one-sided, you're not going to get as many characters. And you always have the choice of what gender your Wild Pokemon is, so feel free to say whatever you want it to be.

    BP#8 (Vs. Scizor Post 6)

    Scizor was about to go for a second Slash attack, it seemed like, but a jolt of electricity halted its muscles after it lunged. It crashed headfirst into Forretress, though it seemed to not damage either Pokémon much. It was vulnerable to an attack, though with Forretress being such a defensive Pokémon, I wondered if they would stick to their prior Pain Split strategy. I saw a smirk from the downed Steel-type; it seemed to be enjoying the fight, even though it wasn't exactly going its way.

    The clanging from the Scyther stopped. They seemed violent; I thought Sela might have to defend herself, but she seemed to be in control of the situation. There appeared to be some protocol to the Scyther pride's selection of their leader in cases such as this, though I didn't know it (and wouldn't until Sela was finished).

    (Scizor Shall be female)
    ----------------------------------
    I watched the Scizor come flying toward Team Forretress Two, this was going to deal even more damage than had already been dealt, and then suddenly another spark of electricity shot along the Scizor’s body, residual effects from Maggie's Zap Cannon earlier in the battle. What was more; the Scizor went head first into Forretress which would hurt both Pokémon and make my pain split strategy much easier to use in the long run.

    I knew from the start that a lower health Scizor before the pain split would result in a lower health Scizor after the pain split, and if Scizor was in more pain and less fit to battle, it would be easier to catch.

    Of course, making it easier to catch was the entire point of battling wild Pokémon. I thought back to my early days, back when I had no idea about anything and had used regular pokéballs to catch uninjured Pokémon. I’d even tried to catch a Metagross that way and as most people know, Metagross are extremely talented at escaping from pokéballs.

    I’d learnt this the hard way and would never make the same mistake again, this meant that Team Forretress Two would now have to deal some damage to the Scizor, but that was okay, Team Forretress Two would be careful and would be using moves that wouldn’t do that much damage anyway, the problem was, he wouldn’t be on the same page as me as we hadn’t discussed this situation.

    Part of me wanted to protect and stall, the more persuasive part of me wanted to attack though. This being the case, I turned to Team Forretress Two, who was watching the Scizor Pick itself back up off the ground. I quickly called out too it, “Use rapid spin.”

    I knew that rapid spin wouldn’t do much damage but it would do some, and that was enough for me.

    Team Forretress Two started to slowly rotate, building up speed slowly till it was spinning at a frankly terrifying rate. That was when he lifted off the ground, picked up by the lift generated by his spinning. Next, he shifted his weight slightly and went rocketing toward the Scizor.

    On the other side of the clearing, Siless’ Gardevoir seemed like it was about to get into a major fight with the Scyther pride. For its sake, I hoped it didn’t as that would probably be a harsh fight. If a fight did ensue, I wished it luck, it would probably need it against so many Scythers, and it wasn’t like there was no reason Scyther was called king of the basics.

    I was ready to help the Gardevoir if there was a need for it, but at the same time, I had to be alert and concentrate on the Scizor fight, and under no circumstances did I want it to flee.

    My heart rate hadn’t settled since I’d first seen the two Scythers that had brought the Scizor to us, and this battle was still only really getting started. My headache from the brightness was only getting worse as well, and for some obscure reason, my back was hurting too, perhaps my pack was too heavy.

    In the hope that my heavy pack was the cause, I slipped it off my back asking Siless to remind me to pick it up after the battle as I did so.

    BP#9 (Vs. Scizor Post 7)

    Forretress slammed into the downed Scizor, spinning like a top, but its armored shell stopped the Rapid Spin after a single hit. The electricity had faded once more, and Scizor knocked the spherical Pokémon away while standing up again; once it was sure it wasn't going to stop in the middle of its attack again, it charged at the Forretress, slapping it with its claw twice, the second blow making a loud CLANK and sending Forretress into a nearby tree... Scizor didn't seem to want to hit that hard, from the look on its face, but it quickly turned into acceptance as the Forretress turned back towards its opponent.

    The brightness of the area was annoying me, and apparently Ryan as well.. I tossed him a spare pair of sunglasses I brought along, not knowing why I hadn't pulled them out yet...

    I saw Sela discussing the leadership issues with the Scyther. Everything seemed to be in order, but one rowdy Scyther started to get out of line and started to slash at Sela. Before I could respond, she had ducked the blow and shocked its blades with Thunderbolt; I assumed this would keep it from trying to hit her again.

    Team Forretress Two hurtled from the air into the Scizor, hitting in extremely hard. Unfortunately, the Scizor had the same sort of steel skin that Team Forretress two had. There was slight penetration of the skin from the attack but it stopped team Forretress two dead in its tracks. Team Forretress Two fell to the ground having had all its momentum ripped out of it.

    The Scizor stood up, careful not to trigger another painful jolt of electrical energy across its skin. The Scizor then came charging toward Team Forretress Two, delivering a left right punch combination, the left claw didn’t seem to hurt very much but the right claw made a loud metallic crash and picked Team Forretress Two of the ground and sent him flying into a solid tree.

    The Scizor looked almost apologetic about the force of the blow. The Scizor looked like it was about to come again and team Forretress Two was lying on the ground, not having had a chance to get himself upright. Seeing the impending charge, I called out to Team Forretress Two, “Protect yourself!”

    A look of deep concentration appeared on the winded Forretress’ face, a slight shimmer materialised in the air in front of it, it looked insubstantial for now but it would theoretically prevent anything the Scizor tried from reaching through to hurt Team Forretress Two.

    As this was happening, Siless tossed me a pair of sunglasses, this confused me as I already had a pair on, though the lenses weren’t very dark. My first, stupid, thought was that Siless intended for me to wear both pairs. The pair Siless had given me did not fit over the top of my original pair however.

    Siless was putting his glasses on when he looked at me, shook his head a laughed. I quickly realised my mistake and took my own, bright red glasses of, replacing them with Siless’ blue ones. These had a darker colour to the lenses and would hopefully help my headache, if they didn’t, I was carrying some paracetamol in my pack.

    On the other side of the clearing, one of the Scyther was rushing Siless’ Gardevoir, which responded with a bolt of lightning from its chest. That gave the Scyther pause for thought; it didn’t make the pride look any happier though.

    I really did hope the pride would be able to sort out its leadership issues quickly and easily, I didn’t want to be the one that causes a split or any deaths and they weren’t unheard of in such fights.

    BP#10 (Vs. Scizor Post 8)

    Scizor charged the downed Forretress; a shimmering barrier around Forretress blocked all of the blows, and Scizor forced itself to back off before it could respond. It kneeled down, once again stunned by the electricity in its system, though luckily for it it wasn't during an attack. Still, it left it open for counterattack if anything could get past its shell...

    Sela Teleported back to my side with good news; I translated her mental impulses to Ryan, since I figured he'd be interested. "The rowdy Scyther has been a constant troublemaker; most of the Scyther were just annoyed that he attacked. There's a Scyther set in-line for leader, the son of the current leader, so there's precedent and the Scyther pride is unlikely to revolt during the change."

    Sela turned to watch the battle, though at a dip in the action as Scizor was Fully Paralyzed and Forretress was still recovering from its Protect usage. I could tell she was waiting for something to happen.

    Siless informed me about the designated heir for the Scyther pride if anything were to happen to the leader, “The rowdy Scyther has been a constant troublemaker; most of the Scyther were just annoyed that he attacked. There's a Scyther set in-line for leader, the son of the current leader, so there's precedent and the Scyther pride is unlikely to revolt during the change.”

    This made me more relaxed, there was no way I was going to hurt the pride, or at least, it was unlikely I would and if I did, it would be because of the prides internal politics, not entirely my fault.

    Despite what Siless had informed me however, there still seemed to be a reasonable amount of argument happening across the clearing. I did hope that the Scyther would sort out their internal issues quickly, not that it looked that promising.

    What looked like one of the younger Scyther seemed to be almost yelling at the rebellious one. Was this young Scyther the designated heir? If it was, I could understand why some would be reluctant to bow down to its rule.

    Having said that, I was a firm believer in hierarchy and smooth transitions, I couldn’t think of a human rebellion that hadn’t involved at least one death, and they normally involved hundreds more.

    I was surprised that the current leaders son was going to take over, the Scizor had revealed itself to be female so I’d assumed that is was a matriarchal society, evidently I was wrong.

    Well, I’d been told never to assume, I’d make an ass of myself, or maybe that was an ass of you and me? I really wasn’t sure. I still had an urge to send Meater into the battle, it was one of the mainstays of my gym and important in my life.

    Meater also had the significant advantage of being both of my favourite types, psychic and steel. It was therefore my favourite Pokémon, both of those I owned and my favourite species.

    Metagross are notoriously hard to find in the wild and so are often found in shops, courtesy of a breeding program. This made them easily obtainable, more so than many commonly found in the wild.

    I turned my attention back to the battle and the Scizor sitting there waiting for me to do something useful, or maybe iit was just in pain.

    Its next action seemed to answer that question, it rasped in a pained voice, “Scizor, Sci, Scizor.”

    I wondered what it was saying so I quickly pulled out the Pokéball with the “A” emblazoned on the release catch and sent Alonso to talk to it. Alonso’s psychic powers allowed him to communicate with me.

    Alonso talked to the Scizor for a bit, obviously assuring her that he wasn’t coming to fight. They then talked for a bit, Alonso’s actions made it obvious that I wasn’t welcome at the party. I had no idea what the discussion was about but perhaps they would tell me later, I’d just have to remember to ask them.

    The Scizor then bowed twice, Once to Team Forretress two and once to me. Now that everyone had been given a chance to catch their breaths, it was time for round two.

    Team Forretress Two then decided to break two of the golden rules, the one about obeying your trainer and the one about not trying the same trick twice. I called out for another rapid spin, Team Forretress Two however decided it was going to use substitute, maybe because of something that had been said during the conversation.

    Team Forretress Two was an experienced battler so I had no qualms with letting him make decisions if he was in the battle, after all, he was the one that ultimately felt the pain, just so long as he stuck to the overall battle plan.

    Not only was team Forretress Tow going to use substitute again, it was going to set it up on an inanimate object. A stream of energy flowed out of Team Forretress Two into an nearby blade of grass. I could tell that it was putting in more energy than last time but I still doubted it would last very many attacks, even with Team Forretress Two’s massive defence boosts from earlier in the battle.

    I prayed that Team Forretress Two knew what he was doing, I was sure he did but I’ve always gone by the strategy that a little prayer never hurts. I also prayed that whatever happened throughout the remainder of this battle, I wouldn’t knock the Scizor out.

    Would my prayers be answered? Would a catch eventually happen? I had confidence but in truth, only time would tell.

    BP#11 (Vs. Scizor Post 9)

    Forretress exerted a good bit of energy making a second Substitute; it looked winded, and it would probably be sweating in exhaustion right now if it could. Scizor wasn't doing very well on her end either; the electricity stored in her body from the Zap Cannon far earlier in the battle was getting stronger, rendering it unable to move once more.

    "I think Scizor is exerting itself too much. It's letting its defenses down against the Paralysis to give it more strength elsewhere." At least, that was my theory. Sela seemed to agree with me, but I doubted that she was certain. Still, it made sense to the two of us...

    Most of the Scyther had calmed down to watch their leader fight. They didn't seem to want to see her leave, but they knew it was as much her decision as the trainer's; she could've left long ago if she didn't want to be caught. They screeched, almost as if cheering, but it seemed as though they were trying to rally not only their leader, but Ryan and his Pokémon as well. They wanted to see a great battle and, if their leader had to leave, they wanted to see her go with honor.

    (OOC: you left the sub off the stats/the reason I may be slow posting for the next 14 weeks)
    ---------------------------------------------

    Both Pokémon involved in the battle looked almost completely exhausted, but at the same time, they seemed utterly determined to put on an exciting show for those watching. The battle now seemed less about actually hurting the opponent than showing of their supreme skills and bravery. This of course meant that the spped was going to pick up, but the battle itself might end up taking much longer.

    Maybe that’s why Forretress disobeyed me yet again, I’d ordered the first of several pain splits that would be used throughout the battle, Team Forretress Two however decided that the time was not yet ripe for such action. He evidently wanted to show off his bravery as he began a stupidly reckless charge.

    I winced as I saw what Team Forretress two was about to do, this would weaken both Pokémon, though probably not very much due to their steel typing. Using take down was reckless, foolish and most of all, ineffective.

    It did however raise the already extreme noise levels coming from the rowdy Scyther pride, they obviously liked what they saw, and that at least was something to be thankful for. I was beginning to piece together the contents and subject matter of the conversation which the two Pokémon involved in the battle and Alonso had been involved in during the recent break in the battle.

    It seemed that they really wanted to put on an exciting show for those watching, that meant that Team Forretress Two would still stick to the overall battle plan, which was enough for me, I decided to sit back and watch the battle happen, the overlying strategy would be mine but the tactics would be down to Team Forretress Two. I still wasn’t going to relax though, I had to be ready to jump in and make some tough decisions such as switches if need be. I also had to be the one to choose when to throw the Pokéball.

    With every movement any of us made, the noise from the Scyther seemed to momentarily intensify. Alonso and Sela joined in one the cheering, the cacophony wasn’t helping my headache but I simply didn’t care anymore, I was too caught up in the heat of battle. Siless explained to me his theory on why the paralysis that had been enacted on the Scizor very early in the battle was suddenly affecting the Scizor so much more often now that the battle was dragging on.

    "I think Scizor is exerting itself too much. It's letting its defences down against the Paralysis to give it more strength elsewhere."

    This made me rather happier than I had been, the battle was just going to drag on longer and give me a chance to see how the Scizor dealt with pressure, and that would be important in tight situations in my gym, and in other battles too for that matter.

    I sincerely hoped that Team Forretress Two would pain split next, I really didn’t want it getting knocked out because it cut the amount of punishment it could take too fine. If Team Forretress two was knocked out, I would have to completely rethink my battle strategy and I didn’t really have the time to be doing that. Everything now hinged on when Team Forretress Two chose to enact my plan.

    (OOC: Sub is more of a distraction here than it is a status that intercepts all attacks, so I didn't put it in Forry's stats. Might do it in Battles Stats next time though. Also, holy crap tons of physics ._.)

    BP#12 (Vs. Scizor Post 10)

    Forretress rammed into the Scizor head-first (after seeing this and describing it in my head, I wondered if it was even possible for it to hit any other way...). Scizor fell back as it was hit, but Forretress kept going for another hit; as it came in contact for a second time, a beam of light shot from the back of Forretress and looped around to Scizor's back. The beam seemed to be siphoning energy both ways and, if I recalled correctly, the move would end up with both Pokémon at even energy levels. As soon as the light disappeared, Forretress moved back, full of energy; it seemed as though it was a lot weaker than what it made itself out to be earlier, and the Pain Split had brought it back up.

    Scizor, on the other hand, seemed to be slightly more tired. I could hear it panting from where I was standing, surprising me over the roar of the Scyther pride. Sela sensed large energy stores still in it, so I figured that, with the lack of trainers attacking it, it hadn't needed to use that energy in a while. It might make the match more even once it taps into that reserve, I thought, but until then it was at a big disadvantage.

    (ooc:I didn't use pain split, I used take down but i'll roll with it, I have an entirely different idea of pain split that I will still use)
    ---------------------------------------------
    The Scizor and Team Forretress Two eyed each other off; the pain split had modified the battle and it was once again any Pokémon’s battle. I settled down to watch the fight. Siless was getting pretty edgy and had stopped really paying attention to what was going on.

    I didn’t really blame him; a horde of cheering Scyther is really no less intimidating than a horde of angry Scyther. I however was focusing on what Team Forretress two was doing, which just happened to be another reckless charge, this one had a slightly different bent to it however. It was more forceful and there seemed to be nothing but determination emanating from Team Forretress Two.

    The watching Scyther pride pulled back in unison as they saw which attack was being used, they knew that this would hurt both Pokémon and that sparks would fly, they didn’t want to be involved when this attack hit.

    Alonso was wincing before the Scizor had even noticed what was coming. Take Down is well known for hurting the user as well as the target of the attack, an effect known as recoil.

    I could only pray that Team Forretress Two wouldn’t be too injured to keep on fighting.

    I also knew that this attack would leave him off guard and therefore prayed that the Scizor wouldn’t be able to seize the advantage.

    One of the big disadvantages of no longer really being involved in the battle was that I started to fidget - a lot! I was stroking Pokéballs incessantly almost like I was going to make a switch, but I knew that I wouldn't, not only was there no need, It would undermine the trust that had been built between Team Forretress Two and myself. I had to let him dictate what he wanted to do if I was going to catch this Scizor.

    I looked around the clearing and noticed that apart from the rather large Scyther pride, a wide variety of other wild Pokémon species had been summoned by the sounds of the ensuing battle, it seemed that half the woods were watching the battle, Pokémon as useless as Weedle sat next to some of the greatest battling Pokémon around, such as a fearsome Nidoking.

    I was amazed that a battle which I was involved in had drawn such a gigantic crowd, I’d never seen this many humans attending a battle except perhaps that free for all that Husnain had hosted in outer Hell earlier this year (Pidge’s Forum Free for all), not even for a championship challenge yet here was I, a humble Gym leader performing in front of one of the largest crowds I had ever seen at any battle.

    This sight set my heart pounding; I couldn’t believe that I was a showcase; maybe the Scizor was well renowned in the forest. Whilst this attack wasn’t exactly going to define the battle, the crowd watching and the overall importance meant that every attack was going to be crucial in the overall scheme of things, or at least, would be crucial in the impression I gave.

    Some Pokémon seemed disappointed that I was still using a stall Pokémon but there was undeniable logic behind it, the longer the battle, the greater my chances of actually catching something were, and that was my only reason for entering the park. I think most trainers shared my views on this though.

    The park was a place where you could catch almost anything you wanted if you had the skill and patience, though a little bit of money did not go astray. I personally did not think I did but if I managed to catch the Scizor I was currently fighting, I would have almost irrefutable proof that I could prosper in the national park.

    Prospering in the national park would mean money and good Pokémon, something every half decent trainer will almost kill to get their hands on. Strong Pokémon are insanely useful in battle and money can only make your Pokémon stronger through items such as Technical Machines and Hidden Machines as well as other elective moves.

    I was almost salivating at the thought of using a swords dance bullet punch Scizor, it’s effectively the most useful attack in the world of Pokémon battling, if you can set it up correctly, and I was sure that with just a little practice, I would be able to.

    Scizor also has the quite nifty attribute of only being weak to fire, nothing else can really be guaranteed of killing one.

    I was also reasonably confident that I was approaching the stage where throwing a Pokéball might actually have a chance of capturing the Scizor. I could sense in my heart that this battle was nearing its completion.

    I knew that I was approaching the point where a successful capture was actually physically possible, if quite unlikely. This wouldn’t stop me going on the offensive and trying to physically weaken the Scizor before I would try and catch it.

    If only it were possible to poison steel type Pokémon. This was probably the first situation in my life where I wished such a thing were possible, normally I gave thanks to the fact and let my steel type do the talking against poison types.

    Meater was especially useful against poison, or so I’d found. Super effective offense and an immunity to an enemy Pokémon’s most liked mode of offence is never a bad thing, it can make a battle that much easier.

    BP#13 (Vs. Scizor Post 11)

    Forretress charged towards the Scizor once more. The resulting clash hurt my ears, and apparently the Scyther pride's as well; they stopped cheering for a time. It's only at this point I noticed that there were many other Pokémon watching the fight, but most were safely hidden in the undergrowth.

    Forretress looked more stunned than hurt from the Take Down; Scizor took a good amount of damage, but it was still moving. It charged to the stunned Forretress, smacking it twice with its claws and knocking it into the air. I thought Forretress would hit the ground hard, but it instead began hovering by rotating at high speeds, seeing if it could get an advantage due to its height...

    I was extremely pleasantly surprised to see Team Forretress two start to hover in the air after taking a hit like the one it had. I was thankful that its body had this aerodynamic property; most Pokémon would be incapable of this feat due to their body shapes and the laws of physics.

    I now had an interesting dilemma, it was physically possible to catch the Scizor at this point of the battle, but I had to weigh up the chances of actually doing so before actually trying to do anything. I could call Team Forretress Two off the attack and throw a hyper ball, Let team Forretress two attack then throw a hyper ball, or sit back and see what happened, the later choice was looking like the best for now.

    I was sitting there weighing up options; I doubted my chances of a straight capture were very high, even with a hyper ball. So I still had two options to choose between. As I was tossing up between these options, Team Forretress Two started to move. I was expecting another take down and I had predicted correctly. Team Forretress Two move to a position directly above the Scizor, who looked up in confusion. What Team Forretress two was doing could only be described as “unconventional.”

    The Scyther started to make noise again, seeing a new tactic being employed, and not just a new tactic for the battle, but rather, something they had never seen before. The other forest Pokémon obviously had a different view of things. They had loved the last hit and had gone silent, waiting for something interesting to happen.

    That was when Team Forretress Two stopped spinning and plummeted out of the sky, using gravity to fuel a take down attack. Whether or not this hit the Scizor, falling out of the sky from such a great height could not be healthy and would Hurt Team Forretress Two.

    I crossed my fingers and began to pray as Team Forretress Two came tumbling out of the sky. The incessant noise surrounding us picked up once more as something completely unexpected happened. The Scizor looked dumbfounded at first before it started to move, I wasn’t sure it would get out of the way in time though, Team Forretress two was pretty damn close at that point in time.

    During the fall, I had been transfixed, my heart was beating at a million miles per hour and everything seemed to be moving in slow motion, I could see speed blur on Team Forretress two, and the Scizor seeming to take forever to even look up. I could see the Scyther pride jumping up and down, though I thought that they might stop when we heard the sound of scraping metal in a few seconds time. The urge to throw a hyper ball was quite strong but I resisted for now.

    BP#14 (Vs. Scizor Post 12)

    Forretress fell, using its height to its advantage for a powerful Take Down. By now I had blocked out the Scyther's noise; all I sensed was the battle. Forretress was moving in a blur, and Scizor appeared to just be staring at it. At the last moment however, I saw it jump.

    Scizor and Forretress crashed in mid-air, just above the ground, but Scizor didn't have enough power behind it to change Forretress's course. Forretress, however, wasn't prepared for the sudden change in impact, and though it hit Scizor hard, it seemed to have taken a good amount of damage itself. As they impacted, a cloud of dust rose from the battlefield, blocking our view...

    As the dust cleared, I could see Scizor sitting in a small crater in the middle of the battlefield.. it seemed stunned, but was in very good condition considering that it was the one whose crashing made that crater. Forretress was nearby, also stunned. It seemed to have taken a good amount of damage from the ordeal, but that's what it was designed to do. I doubt it had any real problems; it was just dizzy and a bit more tired than it was before.

    Two pokemon sat on the ground stunned. Team Forretress Two sat there in a moderate state of disarray. The Scizor on the other hand looked shot. It was in better state than one would expect for a living being that had just left a hole in the ground.

    In fact, I’d never seen anything leave a hole that large in the ground and come out looking that good. If the Scizor could indeed leave that ginormous a hole in the ground and come out in such a state, the surely it would make an extremely awesome addition to my line up.

    This battle had been a contest of the steel bugs, the only one not present being the legendar, pokemon gensect, which had never been seen in the national park anyway.

    My information on genesect was fairly sparse anyway and I wasn’t even completely sure of its typing. One thing I did know about this battle however was that forretress and Scizor optimize different strategies for battling. Forretress was a defence powerhouse whereas nothing can land a hard attack faster than scizor can.

    Nothing beats Sciozr in a fast fight, but i had not let this battle be a fast fight, I had made its slow and tiring, playing into the hands of Team Forretress Two. Both pokemon were sitting on the ground stunned and I was not going to let this excellent opportunity to capture the scizor go to waste.

    I place my right hand in the right hand pocket of my jeans, an entirely natural motion; next I slowly withdrew the hand. Contained within this hand was a pokeball, but not just any pokeball. Rather, my right hand now contained a hyper ball, the most efficient type of pok’eball for capturing pokemon. There was no question of its efficiency. The one thing I was missing in my quest for the ultimate capture rate was a frozen opponent, but the chances of actually freezing something in battle are exceedingly low.

    The next best option would have been a sleeping Scizor, that however, was not going to happen as i had no pokemon capable of sending the scizor to sleep, at least, not any that I could think of off the top of my head.

    A burn would also have been a nice thing to have done to the scizor but there was no way i could burn the wild pokemon without killing it in the process.

    Toxic poison wasn’t an option, nor was regular poison because a scizor is immune to such things, it was one of the reasons it was so useful in battle.

    The Scizor still had more health than I would have liked as well but the damage done to it in my last attack suggested that it was perhaps not the best idea to attack again, maybe a few rapid spins would be safe but using take down again was not.

    As such, still holding my hyper ball, i called out to team Forretress Two, “Whatever happens now, the only attack you can use from now on is pain split, and do not use it yet!”

    Team forretress Two would not jeopardise the game plan at this late stage, it knew the importance such a pokemon would have on our gym team.

    With the scizor still sitting in the crater, not moving, the scythe pride were obviously getting worried though Siless seemed oblivious to this fact. The wild pokemon watching the battle seemed to edge closer, they knew that something big was about to happen.

    My heart was beating rapidly, I pulled my arm behinf my back, then i let fly. My arm coming up over my head in a graceful arc. There was only one problem with the throw, i’d forgotten to uncurl my fingers and actually release the ball.
    I looked down at my hand in disbelief, nobody actually forgot to let go of the ball they were throwing, except it seemed, me.

    That is how big a moment this was for me, a chance to catch a scizor and make my gym team that much better. I would be undeatable, ok, maybe not unbeatable but i would be much stronger.

    For a second time i lined up the scizor and moved my arm in an overhand motion, this time however, I uncurled my fingers at the top of my range of motion, the hyper ball flew true, opened up and let out a small red beam, Scizor was sucked inside and the hyper ball began to rock, once, twice, three times...
