Part 2

Black Jack was in Petalburg forest just outside Rustboro city. He decided to take a break from his journey for a while as he read a newspaper. He read an article about children refusing to go into the streets, even when their parents were forcing them to. The reason why that is its because theyre afraid to. Black Jack took a swig of beer.

They mustve noticed me around, he sarcastically thought. He puts down his newspaper and sees that Nidoking and Blaziken about to battle as part of their training.

Nidoking ran forward at Blaziken. Blaziken prepared to defend himself. Unexpected, Nidoking turned round to use his tail to smash Blaziken. Luckily, he dodged as he jumped high into the air and dive kicked Nidoking, but he missed as Nidoking dodged the attack. As Blaziken landed, Nidoking ran at Blaziken to give him his Mega Punch attack. When he was about to hit Blaziken, there was a large slamming sound that caught their attention. That noise also caught Black Jacks attention. They decided to go the location where the sound was, hoping to get some action.

Sure enough, and not far away, Cassandra and Seed were battling a Steelix. They were using Kirla and Scizor. The Scizor belonged to Seed and the Kirla belonged to Cassandra. The Steelix was beating both pokemon. Seed and Cassandra shouted out their last attack, hoping that it would knock out the iron snake pokemon.

Scizor! Seed shouted. Metal Claw!

Scizor gathered up his energy.

Kirla! Cassandra shouted. Get ready to use Shadow Ball!

Scizor, attack! Seed commanded.

Scizor flew towards Steelix like a speeding bullet. Now! Cassandra commanded.

Kirla shot out his Shadow Ball. The force of Kirlas Shadow Ball slightly pushed her. The attack inevitably hit Scizor instead of Steelix. Scizor! Seed cried worryingly. Scizor was knocked out by the attack.

Realising this, Seed got Scizor to return back to his pokeball. Return Scizor!

Seed turned to his attention to Cassandra. Cassandra, call back your pokemon! Seed ordered. Your Kirla is not strong enough to fight Steelix.

But Cassandra was too stubborn. She just hates it when people order her around. Kirla! Use your Shadow Ball again!

But Kirla, even though she feels weak, charged up her powers to unleash her ultimate attack. She couldnt charge quickly enough, so Steelix took his chance to hit her hard with an Iron Tail attack knocking her down.

Steelix was about to finish her Kirla off. But suddenly, a Feraligatr dived down to give Steelix a Headbutt attack to distract him, while a red blur dashed towards Kirla and grabs her, it turned out that Blaziken was running towards Kirla faster than a speeding bullet. The Feraligatr and Blaziken belonged to none other than Black Jack. Cassandra turned round and gave Black Jack a rude stare as he walks into the battle scene.

Now for some real training, Black Jack said.
We dont need your help, twerp, Cassandra rudely replied.
Whos helping? I just got bored of my way of training.

Blaziken placed Kirla near Cassandras foot. Kirla was battered and bruised by Steelix, but Cassandra looked at her unemotionally. Black Jack didnt notice as he and Feraligatr prepared themselves to battle Steelix.

Get ready, Feraligatr, Back Jack said.
Ferligatr nodded. Feraligatr

Steelix used its Iron tail to slam on Feraligatrs head, but luckily he dodged it.

Feraligatr! Ice Beam attack! Black Jack commanded.

Feraligatr shot an Ice Beam out of its mouth. The beam did hit Steelix in the face but it didnt have much affect on it. Huh, tough guy, Black Jack said.

Again, Steelix used its Iron Tail. Its about to Iron Tail again! Black Jack warned. Feraligatr! Grab it!

As Steelix swung its tail, Feraligatr grabbed it. Now, Feraligatr! Seismic Toss!

Feraligatr grabbed Steelixs tail with his other hand. No way! thought Seed, thinking that a Feraligatr could never lift a Steelix.

But to his surprise, Feraligatr lifted Steelix up and started swinging it around like a Tornado. Release it! Black Jack commanded. Feraligatr released Steelix and it flew into the air until it was out of sight.

Black Jack disappointedly looked at Cassandra and saw her emotionless face as she stared at her beaten Kirla. Jeez, kid, he said. If you knew you were going to get beaten, you shouldve quitted.

Cassandra rudely stares at him. I dont need your advice, granddad! she replied.
Cassandra! Seed shouted. He then turns to Black Jack. I apologise for my students rude behaviour
Rude?! Cassandra interrupted rudely. Hes the one who interrupted our training!
If he didnt come to save your Kirla from Steelix, she wouldve been killed.

Cassandra looked at her Kirla, who was withering in pain. Return, Kirla, she said as she reached out her pokeball.

Did you learn something, Cassandra? asked Seed.
Yes, sir, Cassandra replied in a defeated yet rude tone.
You may go.

Cassandra walked away, feeling humiliated. Next time, I train alone, she thought.

At nighttime, Black Jack and Seed sat round a campfire. Black Jack was drinking some beer while Seed sat across the campfire.

What a day, Black Jack said. And I am not talking about battling that Steelix.
I agree, Seed replied, knowing whom Black Jack was referring to.

Seed couldnt help being concerned, seeing Black Jack drinking a lot of beer as he had noticed five empty bottles was on the floor.

How can you drink so much? Seed asked.
Whats wrong with beer? Black Jack replied.
Dont you ever get drunk?
Not once. Surprised?
Indeed.

Black Jack finished off another bottle of beer and tossed it aside. Theres this one question I wanna ask, he said.
Fire away, said Seed.
Whats up with the kid youre teaching?
Its her parents most of the time, theyre away on business, leaving her with her butler, Thompson. Before she became a trainer, she used to get picked on most of the time. This made her feel lonely.

When Cassandra reached the age of ten, her father hired me to be her teacher, teaching her about pokemon battles. Thats when she became arrogant, stubborn and rude, not to mention tough. Ever since then everyone in school feared her. Now, she is obsessed thinking about being the greatest trainer of all time.

Black Jack began to think about Cassandras recent actions. She doesnt show any respect for her pokemon, her theories about being a trainer were way wrong and the way she claims that she is the ultimate trainer when shes not.

Seed stood up. I must leave now. You should get some rest too.
Ill be fine here, Black Jack replied. See ya.
Until then.

Seed leaped up high in the air and far into the distance, leaving Black Jack to think even more.

Meanwhile, back at Cassandras house, Cassandra was in her bedroom looking at a pokeball shes holding. She threw a pokeball and out popped her Kirla. Cassandra looked at her nastily.

Kirla, you are supposed to be the most powerful of the team and you got beaten by some big no-brained snake?

Kirla looked down in shame, feeling bad about it. But Cassandra thought of something. What if it was Seed or Black Jacks fault of Kirlas loss?

Tomorrow afternoon, Cassandra said. Well be going into Petalburg Forest. We mustnt let Seed know about this or else hell be giving us those boring lectures again. And this time, youll win against any pokemon you face without anyones help!

Kirla raised her head with excitement. She nodded with determination, knowing that she must win to make her master proud.

The next day, Seed was meditating on a beach in route 115 near Rustboro, waiting for Cassandra to arrive. He has been waiting for a long time. Where could she be? he thought. I specifically told her to meet me here for her lesson.

Cassandra was down at Petalburg Forest with Kirla, waiting for any pokemon popping to challenge them. They have been waiting for an hour as well but for different reasons.

Kirla, kirl? Kirla asked.
Not yet, Cassandra replied. I know that we have been waiting for an hour. But were not leaving until we have found a pokemon to challenge us.

Suddenly, two Ariados jumped out of the tree branches in front of them. Cassandra sends Kirla out into battle.

The Ariados began to strike at Kirla, but she dodged the double attack as she jumped. While airborne, she used a Psychic attack at one of them, but the other one jumped in front her and gave her a tackle attack. Kirla fell flat on her back, but quickly picked herself up momentarily dazed.

The Aridos prepared again to double team on Kirla. They both spat out their Spider Web at Kirla making her immobile. Cassandra looked at Kirla with frustration. The ariados went for a double tackle attack on Kirla, but Cassandra dived and saved her from getting hit.

Cassandra got a sad and worried look on her face. Kirla, are you okay?
Kirla nodded.

Cassandra had tears in her eyes. Kirla Im sorry

The ariados interrupted Cassandra by shooting their webbing at her.

Kirla warned Cassandra to get out of the way. But it was too late, as the webbing caught her. At that moment, it was almost impossible to move. Cassandra noticed that Ariados has got sharp jaws.

Both Aridos leapt to give Cassandra their Poison Fang attack. But Kirla, with the fight left within her, leapt in the way, getting herself caught in their attack.

Seeing her Kirla getting hurt, tears were running down Cassandras face used all her strength to escape the webbing.

Cassandra ran to Kirlas aid. The ariados cautiously jumped out of the way.

Kirla was badly injured, almost unable to move. It looked as though Kirla was near death. Cassandra couldnt believe what she did.

Kirla, Cassandra cried quietly. What have I done to you?
Kirla Kirla whispered. Kirla kirl
Kirla please dont die, Cassandra begged. I didnt mean to put you through such pain I I only wanted to show the others how tough you are and Im sorry Kirla Kirla?

Kirla became motionless.

I cant feel you anymore, Kirla Cassandra said emotionally. No No KIRLAAAAAAA!

A teardrop from Cassandras eyes fell on Kirlas face. Suddenly, Kirla started to evolve into Gardevior! It looked like that she has fully recovered, thanks to the evolution.

The two Ariados became shocked and scared. Cassandra had a surprised look on her face.

Kirla? Cassandra asked.
Gardevior Gardevior replied.
Gardvior, Im sorry can you forgive me?

Gardevior nodded and her attention to the two ariados. They tried to run away, but she used her Psychic ability to throw them into the sky until theyre out of sight.

Gardevior turned and looked at Cassandra. She quickly flew over to Cassandra and hugged her.

Gardevior! Gardevior yelled with excitement.
Gardevior, I Cassandra said while blushing.
Gardevior
Do you want to go home?

Gardevior nodded. As they walked out of the forest, Cassandra said, Gardevior, can I ask you something?
Gard?
Dont tell anyone what happened. Ill lose my reputation.

Gardevior nodded. But unnoticed, two men were hiding behind some trees spying on them. It turns out that it was Seed and Black Jack.

I knew that kid had a soft side, Black Jack said.
