We had successfully escaped the Deino family. For a second I wasn't sure if those Pokedolls had worked or not, which was odd since they usually did. Perhaps these Pokémon were just extremely brutal that they had no affect on them. Whatever the reason was, I was glad they didn't see us escape because I knew they surely wouldn't have just let us walked freely, not after what I did to Deino. I didn't mean to, and I felt bad for not apologizing to it. I had a Hydreigon back at home, and although he wasn't my nicest Pokémon, I had trained him to be a bit more sociable. I still had to watch out when he was around other people, though he wouldn’t do anything without something having being done to him first. I looked back to make sure they weren’t following us, and sighed with relief when I didn’t see them following us. I just sighed as we continued walking. Not long after leaving those Dragon Pokémon, we came across a waterfall. I had heard of one being here, but I didn’t think it was true. Snorlax rudely tossed my off of his shoulders, causing me to fall on the ground hard. I didn’t get mad though since I was the one who rudely jumped on his shoulders. I kind of wanted to do it again, but he looked tired so I refrained myself from climbing on again, despite how exciting it was.
Before I could say anything to him, I heard a familiar cry coming from behind me. My heart started racing as I turned around to face the Pokémon that let out that cry. A cute small black fox-like Pokémon stood before us. This is just what I had been waiting for. Its dark slate grey skin began glowing as it spun several times in the air. I knew what it was doing; I had studied this Pokémon for quite some time. Its small body, in comparison to Snorlax, began growing incredibly fast. Although I couldn’t see the transformation happening, I still amazed me how it was able to create illusions like that. When the light faded we saw that it had transformed completely into Snorlax. It was the same size, color, even had the same features which I found to be incredibly amazing. The things I could do with this Zorua started crossing my mind, but I pushed them aside as I remembered how I was playing this. I was going to apply a status condition first before going in for the capture. I had to make sure this was a success.
“Alright Powerglide, this is what we came here for.” I said, being more serious now. I finally had my chance to capture this Pokémon, and I was sure not going to mess this up. “Okay, we’re going with a status inflicting combo. Number five should work well here. I want you to use Extremespeed on it. It may look large, but it’s not. It’s just an illusion. It still has the same defenses and it can only use the moves it knows. I’m not sure how strong its real defenses are, but it’s okay because you’re not using that to get damage on it. I want you to use Thunder Wave right in front of you then protect yourself with Safeguard. Once Safeguard is up go though the Thunder Wave attack and slam into Zorua. If you do it the way we practiced, you won’t get paralyzed. It should gain paralysis right as you make impact. However, as soon as you do be prepared for another transformation because these things sure are tricky as hell.” Powerglide wasn’t that good with physical moves. She could use them, but she wasn’t that well trained in physical moves as she was with special attack moves so they weren’t that strong. Shadow moved over and sat next to Snorlax as he watched the battle about to begin.
Powerglide looked at the Zorualax, waiting for it to make a move. Zorualax appeared to be doing the same thing. It looked at both Powerglide and me. “Fine then, we’ll start this off. Do it Powerglide!” Power glide created a small ball of electricity in front of her. The small greenish electric ball floated in front of her as she began the next step, which was to get Safeguard up and running. With her doing that, my plan could finally be put into action. She was pretty good at performing moves like this, so I didn’t worry about it failing. I knew it could fail, but I had confidence that she’d do her best, after all, this wasn’t the first time she was using this combination.
She crossed her wings and her body began shining a lime green color. She then proceeded by spinning rapidly in circles, forming two light lime-green vortexes as the green energy began to sparkle off her body. I wasn’t going to be able to see if anything worked because of how fast she was going to be going, but I had confidence she would do fine. In an instant, she flew straight into the Thunder Wave she had created. If it worked properly, the Thunder Wave would stick to the Safeguard while she shot at Zorua. The moment she made contact, the electrical energy would shot into Zorua, paralyzing it. With Safeguard in play, she wouldn’t have to worry about getting paralyzed as well… but that was only if Safeguard was in play. If not, then we were going to have a bit of a problem; though she did learn Heal Bell. I watched as the electric blur zoomed past me and Snorlax.
