    Default Gen VI Run - Chainy

    NBP1

    Ranger Makina Auran


    *~~~~~~~~~*


    Finally, I thought that Run would never end!”


    Makina headed into her office, glad to be back at the main Outpost once more. It had been a busy few weeks in the Park, thanks to so many Trainers wishing to enter and attend the event that was currently going on. While the waiting list had been completely overrun at first, with the return of a few inactive Rangers and the others working overtime it was finally down to a manageable size.


    <It couldn't have been that bad.> Aria, Makina's main partner Pokemon, had followed the Ranger into the office and was currently watching as the human was going through drawers on her desk. <You said your last Trainer was a child?>


    A child who had serious bowel issues,” Makina grumbled, looking about. “I'm going to hold off from taking any more Runs for the next day or so and just work on paperwork. Have you seen my game system?”


    <I saw one of the Heads walk out with it, actually,> the Gardevoir replied. <He left a paper on your desk as well, you might want to take a look at it.>


    They better have a good reason for taking away my DS, Makina thought, silently fuming. Sure enough, there was a single sheet of parchment that looked like it had been tossed upon her desk. Judging from the format, it was yet another request to enter the Park. After a quick skim, one segment in particular stood out. “Carter... wait, isn't that Chainy's last name?”


    <If you mean James, yes,> Aria replied. <They're brothers, which is probably why he was selectively chosen.>


    Got to love getting a boost through a family member,” Makina said sarcastically, shoving the paper back. “Tell him that he has to wait just like everyone else, we're slammed here.”


    The Gardevoir didn't move to pick up the form, only continued to stare at the Ranger. <There's something on the back as well.>


    Lovely, probably just a note...” Making a note to just leave her office locked next time, Makina flipped over the paper to discover that one of her games had been taped on the form. In addition, there was a short scribble from what looked to be Chainy, judging from the handwriting. After reading the note, Makina punched the desk in irritation.


    Son of a-”


    Thirty minutes later...


    Makina stood outside the front doors leading into the Manor, looking about for the Trainer who was supposed to be showing up any minute now. Beside her, a Banette floated just by her left shoulder, looking at the abandoned building with some confusion.


    Yes, we'll be heading back inside soon, Pierrot,” the Ranger said to the Ghost. When this is all over, I may need to invest in drinking.

    OOC: I have no clue what Chainy did ._.

    Jathan kept his hands in his pockets and his head down as he walked up the path to the rather foreboding building that stuck sharply up into the sky. He found it quite amazing that this building had only been recently discovered on the National Park, and when he had quizzed his brother on it, James had explained that the Rangers were spread thin enough as it was without organising a geographical sweep of the entire island. Between regulating Trainer visits, fending off poachers and monitoring Pokemon species counts, there simply wasn't the manpower to go exploring off the beaten path.

    Jathan's Bisharp, Koma, was walking alongside him. The Dark-type's posture could not have been any different from his Trainer's: his brisk steps and steady shoulders conveyed quiet confidence, and his raised head moved continually, taking in all of the surroundings. Normally Jathan would have kept his Pokemon inside its ball but seeing as the location they were going was haunted, he felt it was reasonable to take precautions. Not that he was particularly fearful, but still. He was looking to stay that way.

    Eventually he saw a woman standing in front of the large double doors. Her clothes instantly identified her as a Ranger, and there was a Banette hovering next to her. Jathan approached slowly, looking her over but avoiding eye contact just in case she was mean.

    "Uh, hello ma'am," he said, rocking back and forth on his feet. "My name's Jathan, might you be looking for me?"

    Ranger Makina Auran



    *~~~~~~~~~*


    Fortunately, it did not take long for someone to show up. Makina had hardly been waiting a few minutes before two figures approached the building. The first one, a Bisharp, was looking about the area with not a sign of worry in its form; clearly the Dark-type felt that it could easily take on any threat that could be hiding. As for the Bisharp's Trainer, the way he looked about in apprehension made him the exact opposite of his partner.


    Uh, hello ma'am. My name's Jathan, might you be looking for me?” the Trainer said. He kept his gaze downward, as if afraid that Makina would snap back at him.


    Wait, this is Chainy's brother? I figured he would be older. Whatever annoyance Makina had about taking the run had been lowered upon seeing the obviously nervous Trainer. She had been expecting to see someone a lot more stuck-up, there seemed to be an increase of Trainers acting in that fashion for some demented reason. Worst case scenario, it could have been the older brother- most of the staff had heard of Jakk's antics already, and Makina has no desire to deal with them.


    Seeing that Makina had yet to respond, Pierrot decided to handle introductions instead. The Banette hovered over to Jathan, stopping about a foot away to get a good look at the Trainer. He tilted his head staying silent for once; either he had no idea what to make of the young man, or just had no response.


    Back, Pierrot,” Makina warned, keeping an eye on the two Pokemon. She didn't remember what the application said about Jathan's Bisharp's personality, but Dark and Ghost Pokemon weren't exactly best buddies. Realizing that she hadn't said anything to the young man, she looked over at the Trainer. “You'd be right. I'm Makina, and I'll be taking you through the Manor today. Don't mind Pierrot, he tends to check anything and anyone new without thinking.”


    Pierrot rolled his eyes at Makina's remark, though did back away from the Trainer and Pokemon. Instead, he focused his attention back towards the Manor once he saw that the Ranger was opening the doors to let everyone inside. Oddly enough, the Ghost didn't look to be in any hurry to rush on ahead.


    Figuring that Pierrot was simply in no rush to explore the house- they had just returned from here, after all- Makina gave a shrug and motioned for everyone to enter as she stepped inside. As she opened her mouth to go over the normal “You can only leave with three Pokemon, no contraband allowed, so on and so forth” regulations though a white puff of fur suddenly dropped down from the sky between the two humans. Before it could touch the ground, a pair of black wings sprouted out from the fuzzball. The creature chittered in a high-pitched tone, swiveling about to take a glance at everyone present.


    I'm starting to think there's a family of Woobat guarding the entrance to this place,” Makina remarked, shaking her head. “Still, this one looks pretty interested in us.”

    The lady didn't respond straight away. In fact, her Banette decided to make the first move. It hovered to within licking distance of Jathan and tilted its head, scrutising the young boy. Koma's fists clenched and he leaned forwards a little bit, clearly protective of his Trainer. Jathan made no move to stop him: this Banette hadn't made its intentions clear, and besides, Jathan knew that those small movements of Koma's were actually great restraint on his part. Koma was usually reasonably calm, a trait he had developed from the training he had from Dual. However, in tension-charged situations, his normal nature reasserted himself, and the Bisharp was only too happy to display his power. Jathan liked to think that Koma did so to defend his friends, but he knew there was some element of trying to prove he was the best. The only Pokemon Koma recognised as a true battling equal was Dual, and only begrudgingly at that.

    The woman called her Banette back and it went, albeit relucantly. She introduced herself as Makina, and the name rang a vague bell. "Don't mind Pierrot, he tends to check anything and anyone new without thinking," she said.

    "No offense taken," Jathan said, rocking back on his heels and shooting the Banette a quick look. It was rather disinterestedly watching as Makina turned and opened the doors to the Ruined Manor. The doors squeaked slightly as they opened, and Jathan wondered if this was because the hinges were actually in a state of disrepair, or if the Ghosts who lived here just liked the noises.

    Almost immediately upon the group entering, a small mostly-white bat flew down from the rafters. It had a heart-shaped nose and thin black wings, which had to beat fast to support its flight. Jathan instinctively took a step back: while he didn't particularly have a fear of bats, Dual certainly did, and having been mind-bonded for so long tended to leave impressions.

    "I'm starting to think there's a family of Woobat guarding the entrance to this place. Still, this one looks pretty interested in us," the Ranger said, apparently unsurprised by the sudden appearance of the Pokemon.

    "Intending no disrespect, but I have no interest in it," Jathan replied, looking the Pokemon in the eyes to show it he meant no hard feelings. "I would be happy to give this little one a doll if it likes, I have plenty of them spare."

    [SIZE=2 @ChainReaction01;[/SIZE]

    *~~~~~~~~~*


    At Woobat's appearance, Jathan took a step back. He didn't look too afraid of the small Psychic-type, so it may have just been a reflex to act upon seeing drop down from the sky. “Intending no disrespect, but I have no interest in it,” the Trainer replied, trying to look the bat in the eyes; a hard task, since they were normally hidden in the large amount of fur they had. “I would be happy to give this little one a doll if it likes.”


    Like most young Pokemon, at the word “doll” the Woobat let out a happy cry and began to circle around the human. For some reason, wild Pokemon adored the plushies; the younger they were, the more they wanted one of the toys to own.


    Looks like you're going to give it one now that you mentioned it,” Makina said, not sure whether to grin or be annoyed at the Woobat's antics. She was almost convinced that a lot of wild Pokemon would simply leave Trainers alone if they knew that they would not receive a Doll in return for their harassment. They couldn't exactly let any genuinely dangerous ones just maul whoever they likes though, so it was a necessary evil.


    As Jathan pulled out a Doll to placate Woobat, the wild Pokemon latched on to the plushie in a winged hug. After placing the toy on the ground, they were finally ready to enter the Manor proper.


    Whoever had owned this building in the past, it was clear that either they were a fan of class or trying very hard to emulate the style. The main hall, though still coated with a thick layer of dust in most areas, was elegant in design and large enough to fit a large group of people easily. The nearest walls were lined with landscape paintings, with even a few elaborate decorative weapons breaking the pattern every now and then. Near the pair of staircases leading to the second floor, the tiled floor was slightly cracked and one of the paintings had been knocked down from the wall.


    Odd, I don't remember seeing that earlier,” Makina muttered, stepping forward to check out the area in greater detail. A puddle of water also lay near the bottom of the staircase; looking up, it was discovered that the carpet lining the stairs was also soaked, as if someone had somehow summoned a wave and dropped it down from the top of the stairs. Likely a prior Trainer's actions had caused it, or two wild Pokemon had a spat.


    Pierrot seemed to pay little attention to the odd sight, looking off to the right instead. He tapped the Ranger on the shoulder, trying to get her attention.


    What is it?” Makina asked, following the Banette's sight. A young boy, his short black hair in a mess, was looking over at Jathan's Bisharp in what could only be called awe. His large blue eyes were focused on the Dark-type, and seemed to be paying attention to no one else. Something about the boy seemed off though, and he looked way too solid to be a Ghost playing tricks. Most of them didn't care for Dark Pokemon either, and vice versa.


    Looks like your Bisharp has an admirer,” Makina noted to Jathan.

    OOC: oh god whats going on

    Immediately upon mentioning the PokeDoll, the little fluff-ball started squeaking in delight and flying in rapid circles around the young Trainer. Jathan smiled, enjoying the intensity of the Wild Pokemon's pleasure. Without hesitating he knelt down and pulled a Rhydon-shaped plushie out of his backpack. Before he'd even put it on the ground, the Woobat attached itself firmly to the soft toy, nibbling on the soft material. Jathan placed it onto the floor and the bat seemed quite content to chew on his new friend. Jathan thought he saw a flash of a smile on the Ranger's face, but it was gone before he could be sure. He followed her into a large room, which was very impressive, despite its state of disrepair. Fancy paintings hung on the wall, their frames chipped and the canvas covered in dust. Koma, however, was more interested in the couple of archaic weapons that were mounted on the wall. He approached one, a two-handed medieval polearm called a glaive. The Dark-type ran his finger along the weapon's blade and a steely sound rang through the air. Koma gave a short nod, pleased that the weapon was, somehow, still battle-ready.

    Makina muttered something that Jathan didn't quite catch, and walked over to a large, imposing staircase. Jathan looked nervously between the Ranger and his Bisharp, but Koma had wandered over to another weapon, a shortsword with an intricately molded crosspiece. The young boy decided to follow the Ranger, knowing that the Bisharp could look after himself. The first thing he noticed was that there appeared to be a bit of water pooling at the base of the stairs. Jathan wasn't surprised by this-a decrepit old building like this obviously had all kinds of holes for rain to leak through-but there hadn't been any rain forecasted here for almost a week.

    Jathan bent down and extended a finger, preparing to get a taste of the liquid, when Makina spoke up. "Looks like your Bisharp has an admirer," she said.

    Jathan turned around quickly and saw that a young boy was peering at Koma with an intensity that bordered on hero-worship. The child had thick, matted hair that should have completely obscured his eyes, but they shone forth like blue spotlights. He was obviously watching Koma's every move. Koma was of course loving this, performing stretches and demonstrating combat stances and coaxing all kinds of metallic ringing noises out of his armour and blades. Jathan wasn't as happy about this development.

    "If that kid's a Trainer, shouldn't there be a Ranger too?" Jathan asked Makina. Unless the boy was a Trainer who had somehow gotten lost, there didn't seem to be any logical reason for his being here. And things being illogical put Jathan very much on edge.

    OOC: lol'd more than I should have at this.


    [SIZE=2 @ChainReaction01;[/SIZE]

    *~~~~~~~~~*


    Jathan turned around, shocked to see the newcomer. “If that kid's a Trainer, shouldn't there be a Ranger too?” he asked, watching the boy admire his Bisharp. The Dark-type was obviously reveling in the attention, even striking poses to show off even better.


    Makina couldn't help but grin as she saw the Bisharp's antics. Unless a Pokemon was shy, most loved showing off if they knew they could gain attention from it. Dark Pokemon especially loved proving their power, displaying it as often as possible and having a deep admiration for those who looked strong. The boy's clothing was very nondescript; just a black longsleeved shirt with pants of the exact same color. All in all, a very lazy appearance... or disguise.


    Pierrot, mind saying hello to our friend over there?” Makina asked her partner, the Banette still hovering by her shoulder. Jathan's Bisharp seemed absorbed in his showing off, so likely would not do anything. She was fairly sure who this visitor was, and with any luck this would provide a hint.


    Pierrot stared at Makina, obviously confused, but moved over to the young boy instead. At the Ghost drew closer, the child gave an audible yelp and jumped back. There was a flash of what looked to be fur along the boy's backside, but he quickly moved his hand to hide whatever had been made visible.


    Makina raised an eyebrow at the revelation, looking to see Jathan's reaction. “I think our new friend here has let slip just why he doesn't have a Ranger.”

    OOC: Man I really hope this actually is Zorua or I just made Jathan look like an idiot.

    The Ranger chose not to reply immediately. She was rather amusedly watching Koma's antics: the Bisharp had graduated from muscle flexes and flashy poses to full-on backflips and elemental techniques. He was moving his arms in fluid, circular motions as small sparks of electricity crawled along the blades on his gauntlets. The sparks grew in size and formed into swirling patterns which leaped through the air. Jathan recognised this as the charging-up of Koma's Thunder Wave attack, a battle technique that he had mastered only with months of repetition under the tutelage of Dual. The young Trainer rolled his eyes, far too aware of how quick Koma was to show off. He modelled himself after Dual, but the Bisharp was very different to the Gallade in quite a few key ways. This was one of them: Dual would never reveal his techniques to anyone outside of a battle or a training session.

    Jathan's attention moved to the young boy. He was enthralled by the Bisharp's show, reaching out to grab at the sparks occasionally. His clothes seemed a bit starchy, almost like they were made out of damp cardboard: they didn't quite follow the movements and contours of the boy's body like proper material clothes did. Furthermore, there was something slightly off about the boy's movements, and more than once Jathan could have sworn that a spark flew straight through the boy's hand, like it was incorporeal.

    "Pierrot, mind saying hello to our friend over there?" Makina asked her Banette.

    The Pokemon seemed just as confused as Jathan, but the look on the Ranger's face told Jathan that she knew exactly what was going on, and he took comfort in that. He was content to watch as the Ghost-type floated over to the young boy, who was completely engrossed in Koma's play-acting. It was only when the Banette entered the boy's peripheral vision that he reacted. The boy seemed to realise in an instant that he'd let his guard down and he instantly backed up a bit, emitting a strangely wolf-like yelp as he did so. The most interesting thing to note, however, was that for a brief second, there was a black glossy tail where the seat of his black pants were supposed to be.

    "I think our new friend here has let slip just why he doesn't have a Ranger," Makina commented.

    Jathan's eyebrows twitched as he tried to resolve logically what he had just seen. Koma had stopped showing off and was curiously watching the boy, who was crouched low and holding his backside with one hand like his mother had just slapped him there. This boy was not human, that much was obvious. Seeing as Makina wasn't freaking out, he wasn't a legitimate supernatural ghost. That meant he had to be some form of Pokemon. Following that logic, seeing as it was here in the Manor, it was probably either a Ghost-type, Psychic-type, or Dark-type. Ghost-types were usually malicious pranksters, and they weren't given to being impressed, and Psychic-types very rarely used illusions to fight, instead preferring to overwhelm their opponents, usually with their extreme mental power. That only left a Dark-type. And when you crossed a Dark-type Pokemon with the ability to create and manipulate illusions, one particular species jumped to mind: the Zorua/Zoroark evolution line. Finally, Jathan doubted that a Zoroark would be impressed with Koma's power: seeing as they were a fully-evolved Pokemon with their own considerable strength, if they chose to acknowledge Koma at all it would probably be with a battle challenge, not this adoration. Logically, this illusion was hiding a Zorua, although Jathan did not yet know why it was choosing to hide.

    This revelation opened up many possibilities for the young Pokemon Breeder. Zoroark were highly sought-after by many Trainers for their battle ability. Their illusions were incredibly useful, both on and off the battlefield, and they had access to a devastating array of elemental techniques. Coupled with their raw strength, Zoroark were truly foes to be feared. So, while this Zorua wasn't one of the Pokemon Jathan had been hoping to encounter, he decided that if it wished, he would try to capture it.

    Koma was now watching the Wild Pokemon curiously, and Jathan got the feeling that his Bisharp knew what it was too. Dark-types were usually pretty cool with each other, which was amusing because Fighting-types almost always started challenging each other the first chance they got. The illusion of the boy was mostly static now, as if the Zorua inside wasn't quite sure what to do.

    Jathan walked towards the illusion, bending down as he did so, being sure to move slowly so he wouldn't spook the Pokemon. "Hey there little one," he said in his gentle tone, the voice he only used when speaking to young Pokemon and very close friends. "I see you are rather impressed with my Koma here. Would you like to try a bit of a spar? We promise not to go full-out, unless that's what you would like."

    Jathan was now watching the boy carefully, as if trying to puzzle out just what exactly was going on. His Bisharp had stopped posing for the moment as well, though he didn't look confused in the slightest. It was very possible that the Pokemon had noticed the Dark-type almost right away and had just been showing off his skills for a fellow member.


    His task done, Pierrot backed away to keep a safe distance between himself and the boy. While there was next to no chance of the Banette getting involved in the fight, Ghosts had an extreme weakness to Dark Pokemon. For some reason they couldn't handle their attacks, something that a few wondered the exact reason why. Either way, better safe than sorry.


    Realizing that it had been caught, the boy seemed to flicker as whatever was powering the illusion was uncertain on what to do next. His face darted between Jathan and the Bisharp, looking at the former as if he (or perhaps she) had never noticed the human until now.


    Using slow, careful movements, Jathan approached the boy. After kneeling down to meet the illusion at eye level, he addressed the creature. “I see you are rather impressed with my Koma here. Would you like to try a bit of a spar? We promise not to go full-out, unless that's what you would like.” He kept his voice slow and steady, likely to not startle the Pokemon.


    With those words the boy faded out entirely, revealing a small vulpine Pokemon. The creature's fur was as dark as the prior illusion's hair, with a red tuft at the tip of its head. It still possessed the striking blue eyes, which were now lit up in joy. It gave a short yip and nodded, clearly accepting Jathan's offer.


    It was probably wanting to battle Koma soon as he walked into the Manor,” Makina remarked, glad to finally put a name to the Bisharp. “If you haven't noticed yet, Zorua are tricksters. Be ready for anything.”

    Jathan was a bit nervous with the offer he had given the Pokemon. If it was shy, it could quite easily have become intimidated and fled, and if it was courageous, it could have been insulted with Jathan's intention to pull his punches. So it was with relief that Jathan saw the illusion jump backwards and fade as it did so. The boy disappeared from the top down as if some godly Photoshop-user slid the transparency buffer from 100% to 0%. At about the boy's shins the Pokemon appeared, and like Jathan had guessed, it was instantly recognisable as a Zorua. The Dark-type had the form of a little black fox with red markings on its feet and the tuft of hair on its hard. Its large eyes were just as blindingly blue as the illusion-boy's had been. The Zorua blinked its red eyelids and yapped in anticipation.

    "Alright, we'll do our best, and if we impress you, you're coming with us! Koma, get ready to battle!" Jathan yelled.

    The Bisharp stepped forward, moving between his Trainer and his opponent. His dark eyes blazed out from underneath his helmet and he clenched his fists, showing off his razor-sharp wrist blades. Koma sunk into his usual battle posture, which was a very aggressive one that lowered his centre of gravity and proferred the large axe-shaped yellow blade on his head. His aura had completely changed; the Steel-type's playfulness had changed into ice-cold seriousness in preparation for the battle. Jathan spared a couple seconds to worry that Koma would ignore his commands and go all out, but the young breeder disregarded this. He was pretty sure that Koma would love to have another Dark-type around the farm, and furthermore he appeared to have a bit of a soft spot for the Tricky Fox Pokemon.

    Normally, when starting a battle, Koma's standard procedure was to incapacitate the opponent or empower the user. However, Jathan decided not to do so; if this was a sparring match moreso than an actual battle, he didn't want to keep the Zorua from showing off its more powerful moves. He also didn't want to raise Koma's attack power too much because one unlucky movement as the Zorua could end up losing a leg. It wasn't something Jathan worried about against fully evolved Pokemon, but this Zorua seemed quite young and the breeder wouldn't be able to forgive himself if anything happened. Jathan considered ordering a Taunt, but once again, it seemed like that went against the spirit of the friendly spar that he had offered.

    "Koma, let's start this off nice and easy," Jathan said. "Demonstrate your power with a Iron Head! Don't use the blade though, we don't want to hurt the Zorua."

    The Bisharp nodded and ran his left wrist-blade along the axe on his helmet. A terrifying metallic ringing sound echoed throughout the dusty room. Thankfully the very top of the axe head was flanged, which meant that Koma could choose to inflict a less dangerous attack than a simple slash. Koma tensed his white legs for a second before rushing towards the Zorua. The floorboards creaked and groaned, not appreciating the weight of the Steel-type. White and yellow energy gathered around Koma's helmet and settled along his head-blade. Again, this was a protective measure: hitting a Pokemon with energy was sure to do much less long-term damage than slashing at them with a blade. Jathan hadn't commanded that, so he was pleased to see that Koma was following his mindset.

    The Iron Head attack was similar in principle to a Tauros charging; normally Koma would stay upright until the last second, so that he could keep his eyes on his opponent and bring the axe-blade slashing down at the last second with as much power as possible. In this situation, however, he was aiming to use the flanged tip of his helmet, which meant that he had much more trouble staying locked visually on the Zorua. In many ways, Jathan was putting a large bet on his Bisharp's speed, which was in all honesty fairly mediocre. It occurred to the breeder that he should have commanded a Rock Polish first, but it was too late for that. He held his breath and crossed his fingers as his Steel-type Pokemon approached the Zorua, axe-head literally lighting up the room.

    Upon seeing Zorua's excited response, Jathan's behavior seemed to change entirely. “Alright, we'll do our best, and if we impress you, you're coming with us! Koma, get ready to battle!” the Trainer called out. Whatever uncertainty he had shown before appeared to have vanished.


    Koma responded in turn, adapting a stance more suited for battle than just merely showing off. The Bisharp was likely waiting for this, and looked eager to begin his spar with the wild Pokemon.


    Let's start this off nice and easy. Demonstrate your power with a Iron Head! Don't use the blade though, we don't want to hurt the Zorua.” Jathan commanded the Bisharp. Considering that Koma likely had more powerful moves in his arsenal, they were likely testing the waters to see just what Zorua could do.


    Koma lowered his head as he readied to charge, and took off in a dash towards the vulpine Pokemon. Zorua, oddly enough, made no sign of dodging. Instead, the fox looked deep in thought, as if it was trying to brainstorm something but just couldn't decide how to go about it. Finally, the wild Pokemon's face lit up in realization- right as Koma barreled into the Zorua, knocking it back about a foot. It quickly shook off the attack, ready for more.


    Despite being struck, Zorua had a huge grin on its face. Judging from the fox's happiness, either it knew something Koma did not, had something sinister planned, or was simply a glutton for pain. Finally it reacted... but not to ready an attack. Instead the Tricky Fox was yipping in a derisive tone, acting as if Koma's Iron Head had done nothing. While the Bisharp had not yet reacted, there was a good chance he soon would- Dark Pokemon tended to not take insults well.

    It didn't take long for Koma to reach the little fox Pokemon. The Bisharp took one last step forward and then jammed his white boots into the ground. His spine rippled in a wave as he rolled his shoulders back and brought his head down before striking forward with the speed of a snake. The twin flanged points of his helmet shone a brilliant silver for a single second, and in that second they made contact with the Zorua. Jathan took a quick look at the fox, and noticed something curious. The Dark-type was watching Koma closely, not even attempting to dodge. Its expression was slightly speculative, as if it was considering all of its options at once. When the attack connected, the Zorua was knocked backwards, but nowhere near as far as Jathan thought it would have been. Furthermore, it appeared to take only minor damage, which it easily shook off. Jathan's jaw dropped in surprise; clearly he had underestimated this Pokemon. After all, its evolution was one of the most powerful non-Legendary Pokemon known to mankind, so it was logical that its earlier evolution would be quite something too.

    The Zorua's retaliation attack wasn't something that Jathan expected. Instead of biting Koma or launching some kind of special attack, the fox started to chitter and yap, all the time with a huge grin on its face. It was quite clearly belitting Koma, telling him that his physical prowess was much less impressive than it had originally thought. Koma's fists clenched and his eyes narrowed.

    Jathan was in a mild form of shock. He hadn't been expecting the fox to use this kind of underhanded tactics. However, the breeder soon realised that he should have. Both of the Pokemon in this battle had the Dark typing, which meant there was definitely going to be sneaky tricks utilised. Jakk's Fighting-inspired honour regarding duels had obviously sneaked inside Jathan when he wasn't watching. Well, now it was time to stop underestimating the Tricky Fox Pokemon and battle like a real Trainer fighting a real Dark-type would.

    What Jathan really wanted to do was Taunt the Zorua so that its bad of tricks was severely limited. However, Koma had been insulted, and Jathan knew his Pokemon. He was a Brave Pokemon and didn't hold with mind warfare when a direct attack would potentially have a better result. The only kind of attack that Koma would deem to perform now was an offensive one. The Taunt would have to wait for now.

    "That Zorua thinks it can laugh off your attacks, so let's show it an X-Scissor!" Jathan called. "Don't hold anything back!"

    Koma grinned and held his wrist-blades in front of himself so that they crossed over. The blades started to glow a sickly shade of lime green and they extended in length, thinning down to a point. They looked almost like needles, the kind of sting that a nasty wasp had. Despite this, they were still slashing blades and not stabbing blades. The edge was thin but the bevel was strong, and towards the tip of the blade there was a slight saw-edge for prying at armour. That had come in quite handy when battling armoured Pokemon like Claydol and Tyranitar. Jathan could remember the time that he had challenged a Rock-type Trainer to a duel and sent out Koma, expecting a Nosepass or an Archen. Instead, the smiling Trainer had fielded the biggest Tyranitar that Jathan had ever seen. A huge sandstorm had immediately kicked up, clogging Jathan's nose and forcing him backwards. Koma had likewise recoiled, being newly evolved and not expecting one of his first serious fights to be versus a pseudo-legendary. Nevertheless, the battle had begun, and the Rock Trainer commanded a Dragon Dance. Jathan ordered an X-Scissor, and quick as a flash of light, Koma had zipped up to the Rock-type and used one of his glowing green blades to pry a piece of the Tyranitar's chest plates right off. The Tyranitar had roared in pain and anger, and none of its subsequent attacks had landed, while Koma's attacks had unerringly landed on the unprotected section of the Tyranitar's chest. This precision and controlled brutality had been the first hint that Koma would turn out to be the most powerful Pokemon Jathan had ever bred.

    Of course, Jathan wouldn't want anything like that to happen now, but it wouldn't. The fox Pokemon had no armour to pry at, so the X-Scissor would be a simple slash intended for maximum possible damage. The question was whether or not Koma would be able to perform the attack, seeing red as he was.

    Ranger Makina Auran

    @ChainReaction01;

    *~~~~~~~~~*

    Jathan looked dumbfounded by the Zorua's reaction. Makina couldn't say she blamed him; few Pokemon would provoke a dangerous Pokemon like Bisharp on purpose, and fewer still would remain conscious after doing so. Zorua were tricky though, so time could only tell just what was going on.



    That Zorua thinks it can laugh off your attacks, so let's show it an X-Scissor!” Jathan called out.


    Upon hearing the Trainer's choice of attack, Makina did a double-take to make sure she had heard the move correctly. X-Scissor was a powerful move as is, and with an attack boost it would deal serious damage to the little fox. Jathan was taking a gamble on using it. Granted, with the way the wild Pokemon had shrugged off Koma's prior attack maybe there was little to fear.


    Koma eagerly readied his next attack, obviously vexed with Zorua's derisive comments. His claws glowed a brilliant lime green color, and the Bisharp did a test swipe into the air before rushing to meet his opponent.


    Seeing that its target was advancing forward once more, Zorua quickly changed tactics. Its chattering ceased as the Dark-type inhaled deeply, then breathed out an alarmingly large amount of flames. Coupled with the fox's devious planning earlier, the technique was given a boost that was apparent almost immediately.


    Koma slowed his advance, closing his eyes in pain as the flames seared his form and threatened to melt the steel plates covering his body. In the next instant, the Bisharp let out a defiant cry and barreled forward, claws outward. Still powering its attack, Zorua was unable to dodge as Koma landed a slash on his midsection before leaping out of the fire. Both Pokemon bore marks this time around- Koma looking a little singed (though didn't seem to be burned) and Zorua was nursing an impressive cut on his body.

    Once the long blades were fully formed and shining a brilliant lime-green, Koma swung them through the air, testing the weight. They made a strange humming sound as they moved: if pushed to describe it, Jathan would say it sounded like the fusion of an automated Mareep shearing machine and the sound of a buzzsaw cutting through meat. It was actually kind of sickening, in a way, although the look of smug pleasure on Koma's face said that the Bisharp disagreed. He swung his swords around one last time before rushing towards his opponent in a steady, inexorable jog. Jathan was proud of Koma's speed, something that confused many a battler. Due to the weight of their metallic armour they usually relied on sheer bulk and defensive power, but Jathan had spent lots of time training Koma's speed. Koma kept his armour shiny-clean by habit because cleaning off those imperfections meant that he would move faster in battle. If incredible speed was required, they could use their secret Rock Polish technique, but generally Jathan liked to keep that as a trump card. It was Koma's most powerful technique: using it, he could outspeed even Dual.

    As the Bisharp drew closer, Jathan was surprised by the Zorua yet again. It jumped backwards, took a breath, and then exhaled a surprising amount of fire in the form of a tall wide sheet of flames. It was far too late to dodge, so Koma barreled straight into the flames. His eyes tightened and his speed slowed as the fiery tongues licked along and around his finely-maintained armour. It was obvious that the Steel-type was in pain, but he refused to give in. He pushed through the fire and brought both of his blades swinging down towards the Zorua. The dark fox was quick, and leapt to the side in an attempt to dodge, but it only partly worked. Koma's right blade still managed to catch it down its side, and the force of his blow actually knocked it to the ground. Koma then jumped backwards, attempting to get out of the inferno as quickly as possible. Small rivulets of steam and smoke curled up into the air from his armour, and there was a slight stench of metal in the air. Thankfully, the fire didn't appear to have been of the magnitude required to actually melt steel: Koma's armour was merely scorched.

    Jathan looked over at the Wild Pokemon and was shocked. There was a large cut down the fox's side. Thankfully, it didn't appear to be too deep, because blood was only dripping as opposed to sheeting down the Pokemon's side. On one hand, Jathan had commanded a powerful attack, but he seemed to have overestimated Koma's attack power. There was also the fox's taunts from earlier to consider: the Bisharp was probably still feeling the effects. The only thing to do was command a much less powerful attack. While Koma had been hurt, there was no doubt in Jathan's mind that the Zorua was hurt way worse. One more decent attack along with perhaps a Thunder Wave or a Toxic attack would leave it perfectly weakened for a capture attempt.

    "Koma, great job! Now what I want is a Metal Claw attack, but go for a punch instead of a swipe," Jathan commanded. He hoped that this would lessen the chance of a fatal strike while still doing some noticeable damage. Koma nodded and clenched both of his fists. They started to shine brilliant silver, a sign that the Metal Claw was powering up. Normally, Koma would slash at his foe with his three fingers, elongated into claws, but this time he would (hopefully) just go for a few punches. Whether or not the attack succeeded as Jathan intended it to would dictate the closing act of this battle.

    Upon seeing the results of Koma's attack on Zorua, Jathan looked shocked. Considering that X-Scissor was a powerful attack by itself and the Bisharp's strength had been amplified thanks to the fox brushing off his prior attack, Makina was surprised by the young Trainer's reaction. It was possible he had not known the effects of Swagger, but due to many Pokemon knowing the move it was unlikely.

    Fortunately for his Pokemon, Jathan shook off surprise fairly quickly. “Koma, great job! Now what I want is a Metal Claw attack, but go for a punch instead of a swipe,” he called out to the Bisharp.

    Koma complied, holding up his right arm as the claws on the appendage began to lengthen and sheen as an additional layer of metal was added to the tips. Something in the Bisharp's eyes wavered though, as if it was hard to keep focus. Annoyed, the Dark-type shook his head as if to shake off whatever was wrong with him.

    Seeing the Bisharp's action, Makina attempted to puzzle out just what was wrong with Koma. Incinerate had left quite a mark on him, but not enough for the Pokemon to be in risk of fainting, not by a long shot. That meant that either something was affecting his sight or mind. The Ranger was leaning towards the latter, but considering her only Psychic-type was currently dealing with other matters she couldn't know for sure.

    Zorua, on the other hand, seemed to know exactly what was wrong with his opponent. A large smirk was plastered on the Tricky Fox Pokemon's face, and he yapped out what sounded like another insult towards Koma.

    On hearing Zorua's remark, Koma's eyes narrowed in anger and charged his attack faster, spurred on by his opponent's foolhardy actions. Once he made to dash towards the Dark-type though, the Bisharp stumbled and fell hard to the tiled floor, enough force in his movement that he actually tumbled forward about half a foot. While Koma managed to pick himself up from the ground, the Steel-type looked more than a little humiliated.

    “What in the-” Makina began, but her words were cut off from Zorua's derisive laughter. Pierrot was snickering a little as well, the Banette using his hands to cover his zippered mouth as if trying to hide his amusement. There was nothing blocking Koma's path, so the Bisharp literally had nothing to trip up on save his own feet. The species wasn't exactly known for being clumsy, quite the opposite. That meant... “Koma is likely confused, try to snap him out of it,” she advised Jathan.

    Koma was glaring daggers Zorua's way now, and forced himself to close the rest of the distance before attempting to land a jab on the annoying fox. Still laughing, Zorua attempted to sidestep once more but was unable to fully dodge the attack. Tumbling backwards, the wild Pokemon merely looked like a gray ball of fur for a moment as it was knocked back.

    Zorua managed to right himself, the smile on the Pokemon's face never fading. The Dark-type split off into three multiple images, moving to circle Koma and possibly attempt to break his resolve. All of the Zorua looked worn out though- either this was a final gambit, or he somehow had yet more tricks to play.
