It was not long before two Pokemon showed because of the scent of my Honey. A smaller version of the light greenish/dark green Mexican-looking-dancing-statue with a large sombrero we saw earlier, and a small blue seahorse with a large tube mouth appeared before us . They were pretty decent as well. I was pretty content at this find as it was my first decent find. I did already own a Kingdra and a Ludicolo, but I figure I should at least attempt to capture these, if anything, at least the Horsea. The Horsea looked at me and my honey, telling me with his eyes that it wanted some. It was so cute that I wanted to give it some right on the spot, but I knew if I did that, it would have what it wanted and would probably leave me, and that is not what I wanted. I ignored the cute looks it was giving me and readied myself for battle.
"When I capture you, you can have all the honey you want." I smiled. I thought of who I should use. I looked over at Scamper who had been following at a distance from us, observing the area around him like he always did. He gave a slight nod and knew what I wanted.
Wyldfyr hadn't been out all day, and I knew he was itching for a battle. I wasn't sure why I brought him since his type made him weak in this area, but I was sure going to make use of him. Plus, he was a good fighter, and that wasn't because he was part fighting. I had to be careful when using him here, I didn't want him overpowered by the two water type Pokemon. Even though Wyldfyr was a fire type, I knew he wouldn’t go down easily if we played this right. I brought out his red and black Pokeball and tossed it besides Scamper. A humanoid fire monkey flashed before me. He pulled his arms together and breathed in deeply. Scamper eyed the Horsea, while Wyldfyr had his eyes set on the Lombre.
“If the Lombre wants to leave, let it go.” I called out to Wyldfyr, “but Scamper, don’t let that Horsea escape you. “ I looked at the battle field I had to work with. A slow-moving river and an area with a lot of trees. Those trees weren’t going to be much help, if anything, they would just be in my way. I had to find a way to make it work. Both Scamper and Wylfyr were good at using fast striking moves, but that was going to be a slight problem with the trees in my way, however, I was already thinking of something else to do. At least I could use fast ranged moves in the water. The river was narrow enough that if Scamper moved fast enough, he could perform a light attack and make it to the other side.
“Alright, Scamper, Wyldfyr, start off with a Swords Dance attack, we’re going to take this nice and slow.” I called out. “After that, Scamper, I want you to Quick Punch yourself to the other side of the river. Wyldfyr, all you need to do is Fake Out, try and slam it into that tree that is behind Lombre. Both Scamper and Wyldfyr nodded and began working on their moves.
Scamper would be back to back with Wyldfyr as they preformed their Swords Dance move, hopefully raising their attack by at least one stage. If that succeeded, or even if it didn’t, Scamper would dart off moving at an incredibly fast speed. That speed would allow him to quickly run on water, give a quick weak blow, and make it to the other side. As long as he made it to the other side, that would be fine with me. I didn’t want him to damage the Horsea much yet, I just wanted minimal damage done to it, while the next parts played out.
Wyldfyr would dart off towards the Lombre. He would also be moving at an incredibly fast speed, but it wouldn’t be as fast as Scamper. That didn’t matter though because Wyldfyr liked using stronger, more powerful attacks, which was fine with me. Once he got close enough to the Lombre, he’d one his mouth and send out a strong blast of air that would send the Lombre back into the tree that was behind it. It was quite simple, and should not do much damage if any; I just wanted to see what battle the two wild Pokémon had in them before I set off a second attack. That would help me figure out what to look out for. Right now, all I had to do is stall for time, wasn’t going to be that hard, so long as they didn’t leave the area. If I played this right, these two Pokémon would soon be in my hands, and I could gift them to a friend.
These two Pokémon weren’t that fast, so once again speed was on my side. That’s what I needed to keep the two Pokémon from leaving this area and battling me. If I could wear them out as quickly as possible, I’d catch them much more easily and move on with my trip. Perhaps I could even attempt to catch one real soon, if everything plays out well enough for that to happen.
