"Neat, an Abra." Alpha said to me. I just let out a groan. Yeah Abra evolved into the powerful Alakazam, but that wasn't what I had come to the Park for. However, I remembered when I went to Deckbi I only left with one Pokémon, so I wasn't making that mistake again. I was going to at least try and capture this little guy. If anything, I could use it for trading purposes. Abra are hard to catch so people would want one. This would surely get me something worthwhile. If not, it could be quite useful in my team. Either way it was a win win situation. I felt kind of good since my luck was starting off good. I just hoped it stayed that way.
"Shadow, you're up. Not sure how we're going to do this, but I don't want you hurting it too much." I called out to him. He jumped in front of me and bared his teeth at the levitating Psi Pokémon signaling it to ready itself for battle. "We're going to take this nice and slow." I looked around at my surroundings. All I saw were just a bunch of rocks and a bit of fog. I couldn’t see anything that we could use to our advantage. I didn't want to start off with a full on attack, not yet at least. I wanted to toy with it a bit to see how it reacted. Abra weren't known to be all that active since they had to spend most of their time sleeping to power their energy. I hoped his power wasn't charged right now because I didn't want Shadow taking too much damage, though if he did I had all sorts of medicines and healing items to fix that.
I figured that if I start off with Taunt it might come charging at us with an attack. Or even a special attack since that seemed more reasonable given its type. When it did that, Shadow would confuse it and buy himself some time to attack with Double Team. So the Abra would be angry from the Taunt and confused from the Double Team. Those two weren't a good combination. All I had to do was hope that it worked, but knowing Shadow, he'd pull it off without breaking a sweat. He was good at timing things perfectly and dealing just the right amount of damage.
"Okay Shadow, Taunt it. Then when it starts to attack, use Double Team and when you get in close use Bite." I shouted, "We can get an early advantage if you pull this off right. Watch it carefully, don't let it teleport away. You can do this." Shadow let out a loud growl to catch the Abra's attention. As soon as he got it, he'd start making faces at the Abra and cause it to act irrationally. Then when it attacked, Shadow's body would begin glowing white and quickly make several copies of himself to confuse the Abra. I wanted to try and do this as quickly as possible. So as soon as Shadow preformed that move, I would have him attack with a small, but effective move. Bite was the logical choice. When Double Team was set up he'd have a small opening to strike the Abra. Then I'd calm the Abra down with my fragrance and throw my Superball, or Hyperball to make sure it's successful. I didn't like leaving things to chance; I usually liked waiting until my odds looked high.
After this was over I would go on and continue to look for a Golett or Zorua. Either one of those two would be an excellent addition to my team, especially Zorua because of its genius ability which allowed it to create illusions to beat and confuse its opponents. Golett was just an interesting Pokémon that looked like a robot. Like Porygon, Golett is thought to have been created by ancient civilization science. I wasn't sure if that was true, but if I found one I definitely would like to find out. Unlike in my Deckbi expedition, I was going to keep a more open mind in this area. I wanted to be sure I didn't miss out on anything interesting. I was still a bit unsure whether or not I wanted to use my Psychic repellant, but I was glad that I hadn't used it yet or else I might not have found this Abra.
I heard footsteps behind me and noticed that the two trainers had arrived. They had been there for sometime because they already had wild Pokémon in front of them. Either that or they were just extremely lucky. They didn’t seem to interested in the Pokémon in front of them though, I turned back to my battle and waited for my plan to unfold.
