(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.
(egg please. I want Ciel to have at least one baby during this, one with teeth. XD)
Ciel reacted quickly, realizing dimly how one-sided this was. He needed to end it quickly, for Valorie's sake. Chika chirped with joy, having way too much fun. She wasn't much of a battler normally so she really wanted to win. "Shadow Ball!" A wispy black-violet ball went soaring toward the Swinub.
Valorie called out on cue, this time ready to assume Swinub wasn't going to do anything on his own. Swinub meanwhile saw the wink and became nervous. Despite this, he fired off a small storm of icy shards that traveled at a terrifying speed. Due to a type advantage of an ice attack over a grass attack, the shards managed to destroy the energy ball, though not much more. Seeing this, Valorie became aware that Swinub as at a disadvantage because while Chika could freely go to the ground, Swinub could not take to the air. She also became intimately aware of the fact that Swinub couldn't stand on his hind legs, making it impossible for him to aim directly above him. She got this sinking feeling she wasn't going to win this round.
(You can get an egg yes, though now that you mention it I wasn't aware we didn't have absols in the wild. I could consider adding them somewhere, if you wanted, or you could get an egg.)
Ciel looked worried. Was that girl not used to her Pokemon? He was told that was the second thing you did when you caught a new Pokemon, right after healing it of course. You didn't just go straight into battle with it... right? You tried to get to know them first... normally. Oh well.
Meanwhile Chika winked at the Swinub. It seemed so embarassed. Did he think she was flirting? Hahah, how sweet! Oh well. Her eyes twinkled with a Psychic power before she dove again, using Energy Ball for a second time.
(Is it possible for Ciel to get an Absol egg somehow? Or an Absol in general?)
Swinub sniffed at the air, but he was having a hard time locating Chika. Thus, he lifted his head off the ground, opening his eyes for the first time in goodness knows how long and squinting up at Chika with black beady eyes. Swinub observed what she was doing and found himself becoming flustered by being mocked by a female, a flying pokemon no less.
Valorie saw this and just sort of waited for Swinub to do something. She had figured he was so worked up he wouldn't be waiting for orders, and yet Swinub did nothing as the energy ball approached, triggering alarm from Valorie.
And yet it was a hopeless endeavor. She didn't know why she had told him to dodge. It was common knowledge that trying to dodge tended to not work most of the time, making it rather unreliable. There were better ways she could've handled the situation, but she had been taken off guard. She and Swinub were not used to eachother. Swinub was hit by the energy ball and sent flying backwards. Yet... after a few moments he squirmed back onto his paws, looking rather beat up. Yet, he seemed still willing to fight.
Chika was blown backwards in the sky and yet... she remained airborne, coughing. Chika was pretty good at taking hits. It was just how she worked. She wasn't that good though. Quickly the Togetic recovered, still soaring over Swinub. She seemed to be mocking the pig.
"Energy Ball," Ciel mumbled. Chika concentrated a large green orb and threw it mentally at Swinub.
Swinub squealed in a not so cheerful manner as he was struck with a brick break attack, and yet... togeic weren't a physically strong species of pokemon, nor was brick break anything more than an average strength attack at best.
Swinub retaliated with anger, and of course a snort, lashing out without Valorie's command. A silvery ball of energy formed near the tip of his nose, which was promptly fired up at Chika. It was ancient power. Valorie had never seen the attack before and found it rather impressive to look at.
