Ciel winced before letting out a huff of breath. Chika soared up and dodged elegantly, the Togetic not hindered by the lack of wing movement. "Puh-rii!" She sang out, imitating a deeper version of her Togepi days.
"Brick Break," Ciel ordered suddenly, while Togetic was in mid-loop actually. She chirped an agreement then swan-dived down, She flipped forward and her "foot" glowed white, headed for Swinub.
Valorie watched as Ciel stood up moved away from her. Why did she get the impression that he wasn't telling the truth about not minding? She had no idea. She caught on that he certainly didn't seem like he didn't mind but that was about it. Thus, she said nothing. Skye spoke and she briefly glanced at him. That was a curious way to talk. Regardless, Ciel sent out a togetic, drawing Valorie's attention back to him. She considered her options for a few moments, thinking about which pokemon she should send out. She could send out one of her stronger pokemon, but perhaps she shouldn't. After all, her weaker pokemon needed training more. Taking out a pokeball, she spoke as she dropped it to the floor in front of her.
"...Alright. It's time to battle, Swinub."
Swinub burst out of his pokeball, cheerfully squealing and gazing up at the nearby togetic. Nearby students would back off, making way for the two battlers so that they'd have room to fight. Valorie examined Chika for a few moments, observing the fact that Chika had wings. It seemed to suggest to her that she could fly...
"Now, Icy Wind!"
Swinub proceeded to take a deep breath before exhaling gust of icy, snowy wind.
(Makes sense. The loss and tie would confuse her and Ciel, mostly because Ciel knows his Pokemon are weaker. XD)
Ciel blinked. Battle? Did he look strong? Or was she just desperate? Regardless... he probably should give it a shot... "I'm Ciel," he mumbled. "Sure... I don't mind." He stood and stepped away from her. Inwardly he was still in panic mode, but he outwardly had calmed down immensely. The battle could help his nerves, maybe.
"Yuh-hou can duh-do it," Skye said lightly, patting Rama's head. His Pokemon was being abit overprotective. However, Skye could not blame him this time around. Ciel looked like he was about to break over half the time.
Ciel relaxed more at this. He did not quite know how Skye always did that. There was a difference between being calm and emotionally changing other people. It simply wasn't normal. It was more like... oh what was that device called? Oh well, he'd remember later. Chika floated in front of him and cooed. Ciel was worried. He was not that strong. His Pokemon were diverse in ability, not strong.
The Togetic let out a challenging shree towards Valorie. It was the most she could sound competitive.
(The last battle will probably go to Valorie, just because it would be really hard to justify her higher level pokemon losing. XD)
Valorie seemed visibly uncomfortable the moment she noticed Rama growling at her. Ramadan was not humanoid, let alone human enough that she would be able to understand any body language or tones he was giving off. To her, growling meant he was thinking about.attacking her. That's sadly all she could ever get from that. Regardless, the pokemon was hushed relatively quickly and she said nothing of it.
She vaguely recognized Skye, though she couldn't remember his name off the top of her head. The boy she had been looking to challenge seemed a bit shy. She kind of wondered if maybe she should pick on someone with a little more self confidence, though after a moment she scrapped the idea.
"My name's Valorie... I was wondering if you'd like to battle!"
Her demeanor was soft. Why was she being soft towards him? Not even she was aware. Perhaps it was because he didn't seem like much of a threat to her pride or honor or any of that jazz.
VM works and I thought Ciel could win the first one then tie. The las t fight could be up to you. I saw that so...
Skye had been sitting next to Ciel when that occured. Rama gave a little growl in Valorie's direction, indicating displeasure. Read the mood, he seemed to say. Skye shushed him softly, glancing at Ciel. The boy shook a little at being spoken to, but he decided it was okay.
"Hi..." he greeted softly back, wondering what she wanted with him. CHika fluttered anxiously next to him, cooing warily.
