(True. X3 Then Ash will teach self-defense and General Battle. Yeah... maybe not White. That would be a bit obvious. lD How about... Belle, a guidance counselor? *shot*)
Kinko spun around in brief confusion. Her head hurt. Really hurt. She could see funny things everywhere. What should she do? Ciel didn't panic, as he knew what was about to happen. This wouldn't be pretty. Kinko began to yowl irritably and painfully. Reflexively, an invisible wave began to emanate from her body, the move being Extrasensory. Whenever Kinko got agitated, she would accidently use the Psychic move, tearing through the Night Shade attack. It was similar to how Ciel made things float when he got overwhelmed. That likely wouldn't stop Frillish though, but the attack was hard to miss when she used it in this form. Kinko was panting though. She wasn't very strong yet.
(Multiple people can teach the same subject. x3 Also, clubs and sports. There can also be no lack of generic battle supervisors because of how much time it takes to teach people. I'm considering taking Touko/White, but am not sure how others would react to it. I really don't want to do something that would evoke sighs from others. |D)
"Frillish, Night Shade!"
Normally, a ghost type attack would have difficulty competing with a dark type attack, but night shade was rather special in that it didn't have to. The dark pulse suddenly disippated as a subtle beam shot through it, piercing it. The Energy Ball however hit its mark, causing Frillish to writh again, yet... Abruptly, Kinko would find an exceedingly demonic looking female Jellicent in front of her, mere seconds away from attacking her, it's tentacles reaching out and around her as if to surround her. It had come from nowhere! She would also simultaneously feel an extremely painful headache. The thing was, the Jellicent wasn't actually there, and would only be there for a brief time. Such was the power of night shade to cause lucid hallucinations and invoke powerful headaches in it's target.
Meanwhile, Frillish would be coming up from behind Kinko, trying to take advantage of any confusion or fear caused by the attack to attempt to latch onto the smaller pokemon. Valorie was pleased. Even a rather thick pokemon like Frillish could learn battle strategies.
Ciel was not intimidated by the Ghost Pokemon at all. He actually looked just a bit determined. Kinko yelped as the water hit her rapidly and she fell backward. Kinko quickly caught herself with a yowl. Her fur was wet! Ugh. Oh well, she'd worry later! Winning mattered more! She launched herself into the air and fired a small green ball of energy then a Dark Pulse, not checking if either hit before taking off again to avoid the Frillish.
(That would be great. I'm thinking we're running out of subjects to teach too. )
(Oh my. I was actually thinking of taking a teacher up myself. Not sure who exactly that would be though.)
Frillish was hit with the aura based dark pulse attack and writhed a bit in the air before seeming to abruptly regain her focus. Her smile had never once faltered. Valorie noted that Frillish was no less unnerving than any other ghost pokemon. Frillish took aim, her mouth frothing a bit before she shot off a torrent of salty water at Kinko, still chasing in an attempt to catch and do goodness knows what to the fox pokemon.
(I know. XD I think Ash shall become a student teacher... of self-defense. XD And possibly Natural Cures. XD)
Kinko shivered visibly, looking unsettled. She was in pain, but... there was no way she was letting that freaky thingy get her. She leapt away with Quick Attack and then charged a black-violet orb. She released a Dark Pulse from the distance, stil running around like a crazy to avoid the tentacles of Absorb.
Frillish just sort of gazed down at Kinko blankly as Kinko approached, the gestures going more or less over her head.
"Alright, do your thing Frillish!"
As if on cue a blast of wind was fired out seemingly from within Frillish, sending a horrible of feeling of dread into it's victim. Frillish simultaneously raised her tentacles, just sort of moving in closer with them spread out to the sides as if to grab Kinko. And in fact she would try, though even before that Kinko would start to feel a tug on her very soul, albeit a weak one. It was absorb attack. It wasn't the most effective combo to use against a Vulpix, but Valorie had wanted to try it out to make sure that Frillish would actually do it. After starting the absorb attack only then would she try to grab the smaller pokemon.
(Cool. Thanks. Nideous is convincing me to make a teacher. XD)
Ciel frowned. She must not have been used to losing. Oops. He frowned as he compared his two Pokemon. Triac would beat that poor fish easily. But... Kinko had a few tricks up her sleeve too, most of them geared toward blasting this critter out of the park. Plus, she was very unpredictable. Kinko it is then.
He let out his Vulpix, who bounded up toward Frillish with a happy yipping. Kinko glanced at Ciel and grinned, her little fangs flashing in the light. Ciel smiled shyly and nodded at Valorie. It was likely her move. Kinko was fast any way.
Valorie returned Swinub, seeming to mumble something inaudible as she did so. She then proceeded to stuff the pokeball back in her back and take out another one in it's place.
"...Alright, it's your turn Frillish!"
As she said this, she a lightly tossed the pokeball out, releasing a female Frillish. This of course meant it was pink and its tentacles ironically literally frilly as opposed to the male. It also meant that Frillish had a perpetual false smile on her otherwise simple expression.
(I was thinking it was an abandoned egg on the Mountain, since I believe that's one of their habitats, and there aren't any around because they're in hiding from humans. XD Or something)
Ciel had watched this with confusion. Did Chika flirting... actually work? Uh... okay then. He was confused and elated at the same time. "You did it..." he said softly, smiling a little bit. Chika dropped from the air with a happy croonl She nuzzled him, panting softly. Ciel returned her. She needed rest.
"Thah-hat was guh-hood," Skye told Valorie quietly. She hadn't done bad for someone clearly unused to her Pokemon.
Ciel paused a moment, clutching one of his Pokeballs. "Um..." he uttered, not willing to celebrate mid-battle. "Your turn..."
(Alright then. Go ahead. Just come up with a reasonable explanation of how you got ahold of it. Nothing crazy. xD)
"Swinub, use mud bomb on that shadow ball!"
Mud bomb was probably Swinub's most powerful attack. She hoped perhaps it could manage to neutralize the shadow ball... and yet Swinub did no such thing. Valorie watched as Swinub just sort of stood there and took the attack. She couldn't see the look on his face, nor could she have read it easily, that look which which spoke perhaps of attraction, even in the fact of being blasted with a shadow ball. Huh. Valorie just sort of became confused. Swinub knew very well how to obey orders. It didn't make sense to her.
Swinub wasn't getting back up, rather he was just laying on his side twitching a bit as he was obviously finished.
