Lincoln had moved onto push-ups as part of his work out, while Siege the Geodude continued to pump weights. They'd tried having Siege do pushups until they'd realised getting a rock that could float to try and do push ups wasn't quite as productive as they might have liked. It had made Lincoln realise how difficult Siege could be to train. No push ups. Pull ups were pointless. He couldn't exactly use the treadmill. After this weights session they were going to have to focus on battling as a way to raise Siege's strength.

But Geodude were known for evolving into Graveler at a reasonably early stage of their training, after which point things would change dramatically. He'd never had a pokemon evolve before, although he had some experience via his fathers pokemon. A pokemon could get much stronger through evolution, but their abilities could change to a point where their trainer had to learn how to use them in battle all over again. Not only that, but they could even undergo drastic personality changes. It was something to be excited about, but he would still need to be ready in case things didn't go as planned.

"You doin' okay their bro?"
"Geo!"
"Nice one buddy. We'll train a bit longer, then call it a day."

That insufferable pipsqueak, backing out of their battle the instant it began to turn against him. Was that how everyone in the Raikou Dorm behaved themselves, only involving themselves in something if they knew it would go their way? If that was the case she would have to be wary of Raikou students in the future, there would be no telling when one might try and that hoodlum's underhanded tactics to the next level.

Am I being too paranoid?

No. Thoughts like that were only going to land her in trouble, if she wasn't on her guard at all times then someone would see her weakness and strike. Taunt her, attack her, use her. She would never let herself become so vulnerable again - there could only be strength. Strength against her enemies, strength to show her mother. Her mother... where was she now? Training for her next gym battle? Preparing for participation in the Unova League? Or at home with her father enjoying his fine cooking?

Perhaps she should call home before she turned in for the night or once she'd woken in the morning. She missed her father, who had always understood her better than anyone. As for her mother... an insight into how much stronger her mother had become could be useful for their inevitable battle. She had to show her mother that she knew what she was doing, that bug types weren't to be looked down on.

Calling home would only slow her with sentimentality, her time would be better spent training, battling or studying. Steeling herself against further pointless self-reflection Nika hugged the egg case she carried tight against her chest and walked back onto the main Academy grounds. With any luck she could encounter someone to battle before going back to her dorm room for the night.
