Spiral

Okay, I was down two pokémon but I could still recover. Trapinch had saved me once before and maybe she could manage another rescue, especially considering that she was immune to electricity, a fact that could be vital. – Come on son, I’m growing impatient and want to get on with my life. Wattson was…

2 Down

– Now for the main event!! I hope you still have energy, if not we’ll be more than glad to share! Wattson released his final pokémon, a large one with light blue fur and yellow patches. Iwasn’t sure if I had seeen that one before, one my pokénav identified as a Manectric, the evolution of…

Dig, avoid, hit

Considering my choices, I felt it best to choose Trapinch even if it was suffering from paralysis. The immunity to electric damage was the one thing that could finish this battle. As soon as my ally entered the fray, it got hit and suffered some damage but it didn’t stop her from digging a hole…

Metal shock

My roster wasn’t doing too well, most of my pokémon were either paralyzed, low on health or both and my opponent still had at least another pokémon up his sleeve. – I hope you are not done yet sonny. Don’t get shocked now. His pokéball flew high in the air before releasing a black and…

Blue on blue

I had forgotten… I had been so absorbed by the battle, by the fact that this was a gym leader, that I forgot this was a gym leader!!! This was not a battle as all the others and he was sure to have more than one pokémon. Wattson released a blue pokémon with a star…

Small bites

Trapinch took the floor and even though she was paralyzed, wasted no time and landed a “Bite” attack, taking Enolga below its half point. The enemy struck back and was lucky enough to dispel the effects Kadabra had induced earlier with “Disable”. Paralysis struck twice and held my Trapinch in her place, lucky for me…

Psychic Fail

A gym leader was no walk in the park, so I decided to start strong and release Kadabra, one of my mental power houses. He could handle whatever came out of a pokéball. Wattson grabbed a pokéball without looking at it at did not throw it, just pressed the small white button so it opened…

Electric Introduction

– Tell me something young man… you’ve been to the city right? Don’t you think it could use a little upgrade? Isn’t it a little, what’s the word… stale? No, that’s not it. Common? Old? No, none of these fit! The point is that this city needs to be renovated, it needs more energy. I…

Rash anticipation

Down the hall I went, a path like every other in the gym. The floor yellow-checkered and the walls buzzing with electricity, none of it visible though. My feet didn’t take me very far before I was able to see my goal, a small two-step stairway that ended on a wide ledge. In the middle…

Fluffy

Zorua didn’t flinch as the opposing trainer released another pokémon. It was a pink little thing with white tufts around its neck and on the top of its head. The tail ended on a bright blue, translucent ball. This was one pokémon I did not recall seeing before and currently knew nothing about, something that…

Zig, Zag

A very energetic pokémon erupted out of my opopnent’s pokéball. Its fur alternated between light and dark brown in spiked layers across the body, becoming particularly dark around the eyes, giving it the air of wearing a mask. My pokémon, Zorua, was also energetic but focused and attacked as soon as his paws hit the…

Switch, switch

I made my way past the two trainers, up to another switch. At that moment I could see a straight, open path to the gym leader but there was still many switches to press and I was sure there would be a secret passage somewhere… I was wrong. That did not stop me from pressing…
