    The Snubbull refused to let us go, growling at us. I had expected this, and sighed. Sizing up the Pokemon, I figured it would be a little more of a task than Unown would be. If I wanted to save money, I might as well wait until closer to the end of the run.

    Gaius turned to me. "Battle or hand over some cash, this little guy is looking to pick a fight and we just happened to be in the way."

    I had my answer ready - and my cash, too. "Let's use a Doll here, I'm not in the mood for another fight."

    “Let’s use a doll here,” John responded immediately. “I’m not in the mood for another fight.”

    He handed over some cash and I have him a Pokedoll in return. He chucked the plush toy away from us after wagging it at the Snubbull. The Snubbull gazed longingly at the doll, gave us a glare, and chased after the doll. The little dog seized the toy in its jaws and started to shake it.

    “Time to get out of here.” I proceeded away from the Snubbull and once again our surroundings changed. This time we were on the flank of an active volcano. Immediately I knew this was Deckbi, a place known for its Ground, Rock, and Fire types. I looked about for the Pokemon that I was sure would appear.

    While I didn’t spot the Pokemon I did see some hole the size of footballs. I went over to examine one and recognized the claw marks of a Diglett.

    “You want a Diglett?” I asked John.

    OOC: Forgot in the last post, but 4750-500=4250

    I handed Gaius the money, and he set a doll done for me. The Snubbull immediately ran over, absorbed by the doll.

    "Time to get out of here," Gaius said, and I didn't disagree with him.

    We continued moving, and the landscape transformed into the side of a volcano this time. Immediately, I recognized the place. I had been here before - it was Mount Deckbi. However, even if I had never been here before, it was easily distinguishable by the, uh, volcano.

    Gaius walked over to a hole in the ground. The Pokemon wasn't visible from here, but Gaius seemed to be able to identify it from the hole.

    "You want a Diglett?" he asked me, looking up.

    I shook my head. "Already got a Dugtrio, so I'm good."

    “Already got a Dugtrio, so I’m good,” John responded, shaking his head at the Diglett hole.

    “Cool. Let’s see if we can get out of here without the Diglett showing up.”

    No sooner had the words left my mouth that the Diglett suddenly popped out of a hole by John. It fixed its black beady eyes on us and I could tell the Pokemon wasn’t pleased to see us. Just like the Snubbull, the Diglett was being very territorial. Hopefully it would leave us alone once it saw that we were backing down from a fight.

    Sadly, every time we tried to leave the Diglett would pop up directly in front us, blocking our exit. I sighed and held out a doll for John to take. He gave me some cash and plucked the doll from my grasp.

    He walked over to a hole away from us and placed the Pikachu doll right in front of it. The pink nose of Diglett wrinkled when it scented the doll. It spied the doll by one its exits and darted underneath the ground. It popped up by the doll and seized it with its claws before vanishing back underground a moment later.

    Once we were safely away from the Diglett’s turf the scene changed from a stoney surface to that of the woods, the same place we saw the Snubbull. Instead of a Normal type a Grass type greeted us. It was one of the Pokemon commonly handed out as a starter, it was a Chikorita. The Pokemon bounced about us happily.

    “I’m guessing you want to pass this little guy up also?”

    We tried walking past the Diglett, but it refused to let us pass. I sighed, and handed Gaius the money. He set down another Pokedoll, and we kept going.

    I hated to spend money on something time could easily accomplish, but at the same time I didn't feel like putting in the effort to battle the Pokemon. Maybe at some point, if the cost really began to build up and I happened across a weak Pokemon that wouldn't let me pass, I would just fight it for the hell of it. The Park was sometimes just some tough luck.

    Our next encounter was a Chikorita. The Pokemon cutely hopped over to us as the world morphed yet again, returning us to the Woods from earlier this time.

    "I’m guessing you want to pass this little guy up also?" Gaius asked, and I nodded.

    John gave a quickly look at the Chikorita and nodded to my question that he didn’t want the Chikorita. To be honest, there was a lot better Grass Pokemon one could find, it was pretty low on the list in my opinion. I could easily name a dozen other Grass types that were overall better than it, it just didn’t offer that much to a battle team. Which was probably the reason I had only seen around five trainers with the Pokemon, there were a few others but they never used theirs for battle.

    The only reason I would have caught the Pokemon would have been purely for its addition to the Pokedex. My Sceptile, Ludicolo, and Whimiscott were all better Grass types that I used fairly often.

    “I can see why,” was all I said. I bent down to look the Grass type in the eye and began to speak to it. “Hey there little guy, I see that you are friendly. Here’s the thing though, John is looking for some other Pokemon. So if he caught you then you wouldn’t see much battles or him very much. So, could you move along?”

    The Chikorita beamed a smile at me and started to rub its head-leaf along my arm, clearly wanting to stick around. I sighed and looked up at Nitro. “This little one is sticking around I’m afraid. You’ll either have to battle it or get a Pokedoll as I don’t see another way of getting past it.”

    Gaius walked over to the Chikorita, and asked it to leave, telling it I wasn't interested. I hoped it would leave with no problems, but to my displeasure Chikorita decided against it.

    "This little one is sticking around, I’m afraid. You’ll either have to battle it or get a Pokedoll as I don’t see another way of getting past it," Gaius informed me.

    I sighed, and rummaged through my wallet before pulling out another $500. Handing it to Gaius, I muttered, "Might as well get this one over with quickly so we can move on."

    John gave a sigh of defeat and reached for his quickly dwindling wad of cash. “Might as well get this one over with quickly so we can move on,” he grumbled. When he located his wallet he passed over the five hundred and I gave him another Pokedoll to use. I passed him a Cleffa doll and he held it out to the Chikorita. Two vines sprang from the green dots circling Chikorita’s neck and reached out for the pink doll. It grabbed the doll with the vines and retreated into the undergrowth to play with its new toy.

    “Sorry you haven’t had much luck,” I said to John. So far he hadn’t had much luck in finding any really good Pokemon, but I was confident we would come upon some good Pokemon soon. His wallet had took a hit, but hopefully the Pokemon he would catch would make up for it.

    I walked forward down the path and the scene started to chance as it had before. I caught a glimpse of what the ruins really looked like, but that was only a brief view before we were thrust into a new area. This one had a bright blue sky and a soft breeze. I smelled salt on the wind and new what area we were at.

    The sound of water lapping against the shore confirmed my suspicion. I followed the noise past the grove of trees we were in and spotted the great lake before us. Near the shore, in the water, I spotted a pink Pokemon floating lazily with the current. As I edged closer I saw that it was a Slowpoke. Slowpoke were really good Water Pokemon that evolve into either Slowking or Slowbro.

    “You want to catch a Slowpoke?” I asked John, not sure if he had a Slowbro or Slowking.

    Gaius handed me a Cleffa doll, and I set it down. Chikorita immediately ran over, her attention captured by the toy. We walked past it, leaving it behind us.

    "Sorry you haven’t had much luck," Gaius remarked, but I was taking my lack of exciting encounters in stride. This Back to Basics event offered a lot more useless Pokemon than it did useful ones, and the ratio was showing so far. However, I figured I would find something fun eventually.

    The area around us changed again. This time, we were on a sunny beach. The waves lapped on to the sand, which crunched beneath my feet. I spotted my next encounter immediately. The pink Pokemon was lazily resting on the edges of the shore.

    "Slowpoke," it yawned.

    "You want to catch a Slowpoke?" Gaius asked me, and I nodded. I personally had no interest in Slowbros or Slowkings - while I was well aware of their competitive uses, I wasn't that proficient with them. Still, I knew they were valuable, and I would probably get some solid return value out of this. If nothing else, I couldn't ignore something with this much value.

    "Yeah, I'll take it," I said, motioning for Cryogonal to step forward. He'd be a good choice here, because as a Steel-type, he resisted Slowpoke's Psychic-type attacks while also dealing super-effective damage with Bug-type moves. "Let's lead off with X-Scissor!"

    Cryogonal nodded, and crossed his claws. He began running towards Slowpoke, ready to attack with a large swipe.

    John nodded that he wanted to catch the Slowpoke, but he didn’t seem to enthusiastic about it very much. That could mean a couple of things which I could only speculate on, but at the very least I knew people often willing to trade for a Slowpoke, so he could at least trade it if he didn’t want it. “Yeah, I’ll take it.” He waved his Scizor forward and got his Pokemon ready for combat. “Let’s lead off with X-Scissors!”

    This was a surprising move for Scizor to use. Slowpoke would not do very well against the Scizor for multiple reasons. Added to this was that Scizor had high attack and Slowpoke was a basic Pokemon. That coupled with Slowpoke’s weakness to Bug typed moves because it was Psychic meant that it couldn’t handle that many moves from a superior Pokemon like Scizor.

    Scizor crossed his glowing claws and leapt forward to attack the Slowpoke in the water. Slowpoke not known for their speed, failed to dodge the attack or even make an attempt to dodge. Scizor smashed his claws into Slowpoke and leapt back to the safety of the shore. Slowpoke didn’t show any emotion from the attack and simply started to glow a silver instead of its normal pink.

    I didn’t know what attack it was using, but the Pokemon was clearly raising its stats. Slowpoke had a lot of moves that could boost its stats. Amnesia, Iron Defense, Curse, and Belly Drum were the main ones often seen, but it did possess others. Only time would tell what move it had decided to use.

    @AmericanTreeFrog

    OOC: Female

    Cryogonal swiped at Slowpoke with a powerful X-Scissor, throwing his crossed claws across the Pokemon's flank. They left a noticeable bruise on Slowpoke. I smiled when I saw that my Pokemon had landed a very effective blow on to the target - this would offer me plenty of flexibility moving forward, already having done this much damage to the opponent.

    Cryogonal returned to my side for new orders, although first I waited to see what Slowpoke's move would be before I made my next.

    "Slowpoke...!" the Pokemon moaned in a lazy cry of pain, although X-Scissor had landed more than a few moments ago. That, then, was Slowpoke's famous (or infamous?) delayed reaction. The Pokemon was so lazy, she didn't even cry in pain immediately when she got hurt. Add that to the list of reasons I didn't really like this Pokemon.

    Slowpoke's body began glowing with a silver aura - she was finally making her next move, then. I recognized this move as Curse. It was a move that would boost the user's Attack and Defense stats while dropping their Speed stat (unless the user was a Ghost-type, in which case it would do something completely different altogether).

    Curse was probably the perfect move for a Pokemon like Slowpoke, although I doubted it would be much of a problem to me anyways. Cryogonal was powerful enough that nothing Slowpoke could do would stall me for too long. Still, I figured it was better safe than sorry, and I decided to land one more powerful attack so I wouldn't have to worry about being forced into a stall war later on.

    "Alright, Cryogonal, let's dump in one more X-Scissor!" I called. Pumping in this much damage to Slowpoke early was a little bit of a risk, but I figured it should be fine. The first X-Scissor had fallen comfortably short of 50% the first time through, and since Slowpoke had raised her Defense with Curse, tossing in this next X-Scissor shouldn't be a problem. I had a rough idea of how I wanted to wrap up the rest of this battle anyways.

    Cryogonal crossed his claws once more, ready to attack again. He looked at me and I nodded at him - go.

    John seemed happy with how the battle was progressing and launched into his next attack immediately. “Alright, Cryogonal, let’s dump in one more X-Scissor!”

    This surprised me because he was using another hard hitting move, but that was a little mitigated by the Slowpoke using Curse, easy to spot now that I noticed it was moving just a tad slower than before. Because of the Curse the Slowpoke should still have a fairly good amount of health left after another X-Scissor.

    Scizor flapped his small wings hard and zoomed towards the female Water Pokemon, his large claws crossed. The Slowpoke watched the Scizor come flying towards it and simply wrapped her tail around her body as extra protection. I thought she was using another stat raising move like Curse again, but just before the Scizor reached out to strike her, her tail suddenly lashed out with a large trail of water in its wake.

    The attack connected with the face of Scizor, but the Steel Pokemon weathered the blow and delivered his attack before rebounding to the safety of his trainer. The Aqua Tail attack hadn’t done too much damage, but it had lowered Scizor’s health by a fifth if my guess was right.

    The Slowpoke for her part didn’t lose as much health because of the attack-defense combo, but she was losing a lot of health in this battle. I figured she might be able to take another attack, no more than two though. John would probably have to use one more attack if he wanted to catch the Slowpoke, but battles were fluid engagement and nothing was set in stone.

    Slowpoke, seeing Cryogonal attacking with X-Scissor again, read the move and made to counter it. She wrapped her tail around herself, seemingly protectively. This didn't look like any defensive move I had ever seen before, however. What was it?

    Suddenly (or at a middling speed, which was still impressive for Slowpoke), Slowpoke lashed out with her tail. A trail of water flew off her tail as it whipped around towards Cryogonal. I could see the liquid forming on the tail as well. This was Aqua Tail, a pretty powerful Physical Water-type move. Thankfully, Slowpoke wasn't too proficient with Physical moves.

    The attack whipped into Cryogonal's face, and my Pokemon winced, but he fought through and struck home with the X-Scissor. His crossed claws struck the same flank as earlier, and even with the Curse boost, it was clear that Slowpoke was taking a lot of damage. From the looks of things, her health was somewhere around where I had expected and hoped it to be. It looked like my prediction had been on point, which was good. Now, time was on my side.

    I waited to see if Slowpoke would attack again, in which case I would have to retaliate. However, with Curse having lowered Slowpoke's already infamous Speed, I wasn't surprised when the Pokemon did not attack. This was my turn.

    "Alright, Cryogonal, use..." I trailed off, catching myself mid-command. I was now having a change of mind of what I wanted to do. A moment ago, I had wanted to go with Toxic to land a status on to Slowpoke, making her easier to catch. I was now having second thoughts, however. Landing that particular status on to Slowpoke may just be asking for further complications. Slowpoke was already at a low health, and if I failed to capture it before the Toxic finished it off, then that would be a very big problem. There were other, easier ways to manage what I wanted to do.

    "Cryogonal, let's go in a different direction actually. Start with Light Screen, and then go with a U-Turn to Cloyster!" I commanded. Cloyster, my Dragonite, had yet to see the light of day in this Park run, and I figured she would be very pleased at the opportunity to make her entrance into things. She had a few moves with which I could use to my advantage.

    My Cryogonal began setting up a Light Screen. This move was a precautionary move - Water-types like Slowpoke were typically excellent users of Ice-type moves as well, and even though Cloyster had pretty good bulk and the Multiscale trait, Ice-type moves were never fun for her. Light Screen, which defended my Pokemon against Special moves, was a very good move to use here since all the Ice-type moves Slowpoke could learn (and most of them in general) were Special moves. Cloyster should be well protected from those for the rest of this battle, if I handled things efficiently.

    U-Turn was a move I could use to get Cloyster in while dealing basically the rest of the damage I intended to do to Slowpoke in this battle, which killed two birds in one stone. X-Scissor had done roughly 25% of damage to Slowpoke, and since U-Turn was a little weaker than X-Scissor and Slowpoke still had around a third of her health left, no problems should crop up from putting in this one more hit. At best U-Turn may leave Slowpoke with somewhere around 10% of her health, though I was hoping that number would dip down into single-digits. Of course, given the flexibility of this situation right now, it wouldn't be a problem if that didn't happen, either. I had backup plans.

    John was about to launch his next round of attacks when he suddenly stopped himself midsentence as a thoughtful look crossed his face. He took about thirty seconds to think his next move before deciding on a plan.

    “Cryogonal, let’s go in a different direction actually. Start with Light Screen, and then go with a U-Turn to Cloyster!”

    Switching out his Scizor for his Dragonite was an interesting plan. I didn’t know what he was planning to do with his Dragonite, but by calling it out he was taking a risk because Slowpoke being a Water type knew the powerful Ice move known as Ice Beam. Dragonite had a four times weakness to Ice attacks, which might explain the Light Screen move.

    Scizor pointed his claws out and began to focus his energy to create the special energy shield that would limit damage. The Slowpoke tilted its head in response and a confounded look crossed its features. Slowpoke were really slow Pokemon, physically and mentally. Slowpoke’s body shimmered for a brief instant before it faded back to its normal color, meaning that Slowpoke had used another stat raising move.

    Next, a ball of water began to form in its mouth. But before Slowpoke could completely form the attack the Scizor was upon in a flash, striking the Slowpoke again before buzzing back to the side of Eric as the Dragonite took to the field in place of Scizor. Dragonite flew forward, right into a jet of water. Dragonite barely seemed to feel the attack, due to the combination of Light Screen and Multiscale.

    Slowpoke remained still and watched her new opponent with caution. The U-Turn had done a fair amount of damage, but she still had enough health left to put up a fight. Plus, she had the ability to heal with Slack Off if she needed to.

    Cryogonal stuck out his claws, and a wall of shimmering energy appeared around him in the form of a protective bubble. It was a translucent yellow, and I knew that this Light Screen would be very effective in reducing the effect of Slowpoke's many Special moves.

    Meanwhile, Slowpoke had a dumbfounded look on her face. This wasn't all that out of the ordinary, to be completely honest, but the very faint glow around her that was visible for the briefest of moments certainly was. That indicated that Slowpoke had probably used some kind of stat boosting move. Judging from what she had just done, I'd be willing to bet it was Amnesia, a move that boosted the user's Special Defense stat by two stages.

    That was not a problem to me, however, thanks to the beautiful situation I had put myself in. Slowpoke was already as weakened as I needed it to be, so dealing any more damage was completely unnecessary, rendering those Special Defense buffs useless. They may even come in handy if I later decided to throw in one more weak attack on Slowpoke to really put it in the sweet spot for a capture, although I didn't know if I really felt like doing that.

    Next, Slowpoke began forming a bubble of water in her mouth. This was Water Pulse. At best, it was an average Water-type move, although it did have a small chance of confusing the target. That would certainly be annoying, but the 10% chance of it happening was low enough that I didn't really have any real reason to be worried at the moment.

    Cryogonal used this moment to strike, however. He jumped out towards Slowpoke and struck her with his claws, dealing a quick blow before jumping back. Slowpoke cringed, but maintained his focus and continued forming the Water Pulse. Meanwhile, Cryogonal turned into a red beam of light, and flew back into my Pokeball. That was a side effect of U-Turn - the user would automatically return to its Pokeball.

    "Good job, Cryogonal," I muttered as I pulled out my other Pokeball. "Now it's your turn, Cloyster!"

    My Dragonite exploded out of her Pokeball in a magnificent burst of white light. She roared loudly, and set her eyes upon her opponent - the Slowpoke, now with very, very little health remaining. She snorted a little, as if dismissing this Pokemon as any kind of threat.

    Then, Slowpoke launched the Water Pulse at her. It was first dulled by the Light Screen, then by Cloyster's Multiscale ability. However, it still smacked her into the chest, which was plenty enough to get the fierce Pokemon in a frenzy.

    "Dragonite!" she roared loudly. Dragon-types were usually very feisty Pokemon, I remarked to myself. "Don't mind that, Cloyster! We're just going to wrap things up now! Use Thunder Wave!"

    Cloyster bit on her lip, then blue electricity began charging on her antenna. She seemed to be restraining herself, for me at least. She knew I wouldn't be happy if she Knocked Out this Pokemon on accident.

    Meanwhile, I was thinking. After this Thunder Wave, I could probably go for the capture. I had considered dumping in another attack for good measure, but that was probably unnecessary. Yeah, I decided, I'll go for the capture. I unhooked an empty Park Ball from my belt, although I didn't click the center button quite yet.
