    Daniel seemed to make up his mind as he watched the Carvanha in the sand flopping around weakly. Cautiously, he went and tapped it with a Park Ball, then took the wiggling sphere and placed it by the water. That was a good idea; if Carvanha broke out, at least it’d go into the water, which would do it some good.

    However, the fish never did escape the Ball. After just a few feeble shakes, the Park Ball fell still. I smiled and clapped Daniel on the shoulder, nodding towards the Park Ball lying in the sand.

    “Well, you did it! Congrats on your first capture in the National Park!”

    “Ah, wait a minute!” I called, hurrying after the Trainer and her Flygon. I caught up with Akainai a few moments later, putting myself in front of her as we headed after Jade. “It’s not safe to just run off like that! Some of the Pokemon of the Park can be pretty aggressive, and this area has one of the worst-tempered species of all. If you were to run across a Gyarados as it switched pools, well, let’s just say some of them get testy when they see Trainers.”

    I spotted Jade not too far ahead and made to call out for her to come back, but before I could a small blue shape flew out of a pool off to the Flygon’s left. The shape turned out to be a little Manaphy, which flapped its “wings” at Jade and squirted a bit of water at her plafully. It then somersaulted and landed back in the pool, poking its little head out of the water and giggling cheerfully.

    “Then again, a lot of the Pokemon here just like to pull pranks and play around,” I said, relieved that Jade hadn’t had the misfortune of running into something bad-tempered.

    OCC: Yay! Just one question though, will Carvanah have HM Dive still if I use it in battle?
    ====

    “Well, you did it! Congrats on your first capture in the National Park!” Sara said, patting Daniel on the back.

    Daniel picked up the ball, smiling at it. He thrust his arms in the air screaming, "WHOOHOO!" like a small child who had just opened a pack of cards and gotten the one he wanted. He clipped the ball onto his belt sighing with relief.

    Raiguy looked suspiciously at the ball, wondering if it was going to open back up. Once he realised it was okay, he jumped on Daniel's shoulder, patting him on the back with his tail for a job well done.

    This was only the begining of the National park journey, however. He knew that he still had plenty of time before he needed to leave, plenty of Parkballs left, and even stronger Pokemon out there to catch. He was as excited as ever.

    Something struck him afterwards, however. "Sara, you said Carvanah aren't normally this violent, so what do you think was bothering this one?"

    "...A Gyarados? All the more reason to catch her before she happens to run into one!" Akinai attempted to make a vain attempt to get around Arunei when she noticed the tiny blue shape leap out from one of the pools and squirt a small amount of water at Jade.

    The Flygon, irritated at being splased again, darted her head around to spot the culprit. As Jade spotted the Manaphy however, her expression changed from that of annoyance to astonishment. Hearing Arunei's call, she sulkily made her way back to Akinai.

    "I know how much you hate water...I could call you back if that's what you really want." As Akinai pulled out the Poke Ball however Jade simply shook her head and instead floated as close to her trainer as possible.

    "Fine, one more strike for you then." Akinai peered closely at the blue shape in the distance, noticing that it was half submerged and appeared to be enjoying the show. "What is that Pokemon anyways, Arunei? I don't remember seeing anything like it before."

    OOC: No, you have to buy all EM (Extra Moves, which are all moves a Pokemon doesn’t get by leveling up), even if a Wild Mon uses one in the Park. Basically, having access to a Wild Mon’s entire movepool gives Rangers more flexibility.

    I chuckled at Daniel’s celebrating, watching him gallivanting about. After a moment he calmed down and enquired why the Carvanha was so aggressive. I shrugged at his question, looking at the pool the fish had come out of.

    “I’m not entirely sure,” I answered. “Carvanha can be vicious, but normally only when provoked. They aren’t territorial, and that one clearly doesn’t have any young or a mate to defend. I doubt there’s anything in the water to make it so angry; if that was the case, all the Pokemon in this pool would be trying to attack us. Maybe that one just has a meaner personality than most Carvanha.”

    I turned from the lake in time to see the old Gyarados emerging from the water once again. It slowly made its way towards another, but then suddenly angled its body and started coming in our direction. When it reached us, the sea serpent lowered its massive head and peered at Daniel, then Raiguy. I smiled and patted the towering beast on its tri-pronged crest.

    “Hello there, fella,” I greeted the Pokemon. It grumbled deep in its throat and nudged me gently as a way of saying hello. “This here is Daniel, and his Raichu, Raiguy. They’re my charges for the time being. Daniel there just caught his first Pokemon of the Park!” At this, Gyarados inched its frightening face closer to Daniel, studying the much smaller human with clouded red eyes. It then faced Raiguy once more before rearing back slowly, slapping the sandy ground with its powerful tail.

    “Oh, I think Gyarados wants to see what you’ve got,” I told Daniel in a soft voice. “This is really something; Gyarados never challenges any Trainers that come to the Great Lakes. It always leaves them alone. Something about you sure got its attention…”

    “That’s a Manaphy,” I replied, smiling at Jade as she stuck close to Akinai. This probably wasn’t the best place for a Pokemon who didn’t like water or getting wet. “They’re some of the rarest Pokemon, not just in the Park, but in the world. They’re Legendary Pokemon, you know. You’re lucky to have seen one; I know Trainers who have been coming here for years and haven’t spotted a flash of one.”

    The Manaphy giggled again, flipping into the air and performing a few somersaults before landing in the water and vanishing from sight. When it didn’t reappear, I assumed it had left to do other things.

    My attention was grabbed from the pool by the sensation of something crawling over my foot. I scowled and looked down, finding a large blue slug slowly moving over my shoe. I looked over at Akinai and forced myself not to suddenly bust out laughing.

    “I seem to have a cling-on,” I told her, shifting my weight and motioning to the Shellos, which at that moment decided to be lazy and simply sit on my shoe.

    Akinai eyed the Shellos as the slug lazed on its unusual perch. The Pokemon would be a nice addition to her team...but how to get it off of Arunei's foot?

    "Sorry about this, Jade, but this needs a more subtle approach." Akinai pulled off two Pokeballs off her belt, returning the Flygon in one and letting the other sphere drop to the ground. A short burst of white light revealed a brown foxlike Pokemon.

    "Kaya, try to get that Shellos' attention by Growling at it." The Eevee began to let out an intimidating growl...Would it work?

    Daniel looked at Gyarados, somewhat fearfully. It's big, red eyes made Daniel feel as though it was staring into his soul. Daniel hadn't ever seen such a large Pokemon this close, needless to say he was a little scared. Daniel would've screamed and run, had Sara not told him about the kind natured Gyarados.

    Daniel had to think for a bit about Gyarados' challenge. Should he attack it? Should he catch it? Raiguy was attempting to communicate with Gyarados. He mimiced the gesture made by the sea serpant's tail, only he left a glass patch where the contact with the sand occured. Raiguy nodded to Daniel. He didn't know why, but Daniel knew that him and the kind old Gyarados were destined to meet. He decided he would battle, and possibly catch it.

    The Gyarados was older and wiser, and therefore had more battle experience then Carvanah, OR Daniel. Also, Gyarados would be a formidable on sea, air or land, not to mention had an advantage on two out of three. Finally, Daniel wasn't sure he'd be able to catch Gyarados using only Parkballs. "Well, it never hurts to try!" Daniel thought.

    "Okay Gyarados! I accept your challenge! Raiguy, use thunderwave, and then follow up with discharge, but ease up on it, I don't wanna knock it out!"

    Daniel wished he had chose his attack more carefully; would discharge hit more than just Gyarados?

    Daniel would have changed his commands, but it was too late. Raiguy had fired the attacks already, almost simultaneously.

    Gyarados watched Raiguy shoot off his Thunder Wave/Discharge combo, seemingly unconcerned. The massive water serpent had seen hundreds of battles in its long life, and because many Trainers brought Electric types with them to the Great Lakes, a lot of the Pokemon here seemed to have a bit of tolerance for Electric attacks. But it wasn’t just its long years of battling and acquired resistance to Electric attacks that made Gyarados unafraid.

    Twisting its long body, the blue-scaled snake opened its huge maw wide, collecting an impressive amount of glittering, multi-colored energy behind its deadly fangs. Calmly, as if doing nothing more than watching the clouds move by, Gyarados fired its Hyper Beam…but not at Raiguy. Instead, it blasted through Raiguy’s Thunder Wave attack, instantly disspating and scattering the weak electrical pulse. It then struck the sizzling, lime-green sphere of electricty Raiguy had fired, cutting through it and sending the two halves flying harmlessly past it. They collided with the ground, sending up plumes of sand and melting more into streaks of glass.

    “I think it’s gonna take a lot more than that, Daniel,” I said, trying to encourage him. Gyarados simly stared, its sides heaving a bit as it recovered from the Hyper Beam. “Gyarados might be old, but it’s still strong, and its age has only given it a lot of battle experience. But you can do it; you just have to out-strategize it is all!”

    Daniel looked up at Gyrados is disbeilief. "Oh, you have GOT to be kidding me!" Daniel stated angrily.

    Daniel looked at Raiguy, who was just as surprised as he was. "Hm...we'll have to think of a better strategy...He (yes, it's a boy XD) should be weak from using Hyperbeam for a while...I know! Raiguy, use slam on the sand infront of you, then use quick attack to jump onto Gyrados!"

    Raiguy knew this was risky, but was more than up to the challenge. He hit the ground with his tail, using the impact to launch himself into the air. He then used quick attack in Gyrados's direction. Raiguy had his own idea, however. To phase Gyrados, he used a thunderwave attack whilst in the air. This would mean that Gyrados would get hit by one thing or the other, or at least that's what they hoped. "I've taught you well, Raiguy." Daniel stated. Raiguy braced himself to either take a hit, or dish one out.

    Shellos didn’t seem very affected by Kaya’s Growl. It cocked its head to one side, then made a funny sort of gurgling noise. I realized after a moment it was trying to imitate the growl and couldn’t help but laugh. The Shellos looked up at me and made yet another strange noise, clearly trying to mimic my laughing.

    “I’ve never heard of a Shellos acting like a Chatot before,” I said with a smile, putting my foot down. Shellos slid from my shoe and made its way to Kaya, stopping about a foot from her. It stared at her hard, slowly moving in a circle around her, as if examining the Eevee. Finally, the little slug came to a halt, lowering its head and tensing its entire body. After a moment a sheen came over the Pokemon’s body, and it raised its head to give Kaya a quizzical look.

    “I think…it’s trying to see if Kaya can copy its Harden,” I said, shrugging a bit. “Maybe this one just likes copying others?”

    "A mimicking Shellos...this could be interesting." Akinai grinned as the Shellos waited for a response from Kaya.

    The Eevee in turn gave the slug an odd look. Did it really think that she could use Harden as well?

    "Get pumped up using Focus Energy, Kaya. Maybe it will think you're trying to copy Harden." Kaya nodded and closed her eyes in concentration.

    I smiled at Daniel’s orders, nodding a bit. He was starting to think more about strategy than out-right attacking, the latter of which wasn’t going to get him anywhere with a Pokemon as seasoned as Gyarados. I watched as Raiguy raised his tail and slammed it into the ground, sending up a plume of sand high into the air. The force of the blow sent him into the air, and then by rapidly tightening and relaxing his muscles to release jolts of electricity, he propelled himself towards Gyarados as a near-invisible blur.

    Gyarados narrowed his eyes, but his sight wasn’t as good as it had been and he couldn’t spot Raiguy coming at him. Still winded from his Hyper Beam, the gargantuan Pokemon shifted his bulk from side to side, letting out a deep, guttural hiss in an attempt to startle Raiguy and make him visible. However, his hiss was cut short when Raiguy fired off another Thunder Wave. The haze of electricity washed over Gyarados, temporarily paralyzing him as it coursed through his body. His muscles twitched and jumped under his armor-like scales, which were useless in turning away an Electric attack.

    Raiguy whammed into Gyarados a moment later, but the impact did little damage. Gyarados’s strong scales might not be useful for preventing damage from Electric-based attacks, but they were excellent for cutting down on damage taken from most physical assaults. There wasn’t much that was stronger than a Gyarados’s scales; Daniel and Raiguy would be much better off fighting from a distance. Not only would it give them a better chance of succeeding, it would keep them out of the range of Gyarados’s own physical attacks, or at least most of them.

    Akinai had a good idea, and Kaya carried out her given order of Focus Energy. Closing her eyes, she slowed her breathing and concentrated on the beat of her heart, the pulse of blood, and the flow of energy in her body. She focused on the feel of her body, limber and agile and full of strength, and when she was done, she sighed softly and opened her eyes.

    Shellos cocked its head from side to side a few times, blinking a little. Then it made a sort of squeaking sound, bobbing its head and slithering in a circle. Then it suddenly leapt towards Kaya, and let me tell you, there’s nothing quite so ridiculous as watching a slug jump. It pulled its head down against its chest and curled its squishy body upwards, forming a compact ball as it flew through the air.

    OOC: Alright, will try my best to describe attacks. I have to admit that descriptions are one of my weak points ^^; also, going with female with Shellos.


    Kaya tensed as the Shellos leaped towards her. This was a complete 180 of how the slug acted before, perhaps she was angry at being unable to copy the Focus Energy?

    "Kaya, try to avoid it and retaliate with a Quick Attack before it uncurls. That should leave it disoriented if we're lucky."

    Akinai took a quick look at her surroundings. There were pools everywhere to the sides of the path, and that put her Eevee at a disadvantage. If the Shellos was knocked into the water, the slug Pokemon might try to escape.

    "..And try to aim it away from the water if possible!" Kaya seemed distracted as she attempted to make a wide leap to the side as the Shellos flew quickly forward...

    OOC part 2: My post was pretty short as well so no worries XD out of couriousity, are there any types of trees/bushes/open areas other then the path, or is there nothing but water?
