Repetitive and effective

Kirlia’s training had become boring and I found myself dwelling on other matters, not paying the slightest attention to her actions, letting her decide which attack to use. Autonomy was a good lesson to learn, it would bring strength with it. One more level and I would probably change up my leading pokémon for one…

The usual suspects

A wild illumise couldn’t wait to get some action and jumped into the fray without even waiting for the previous fighter to finish evaporating. Kirlia was also eager to keep on fighting and wasted no time in attacking this newcomer. Illumise twisted and twirled on its small legs but could not avoid the attacks and…

Back to form

I was back on the field before I knew it, with eager pokémon by my side. Kirlia didn’t even wait for my call and leapt out of her pokéball, actively searching for new foes to challenge. The energy acted like a beacon and wild foes began appearing, the first of which was a volbeat. Whatever…

Recovery

I made my way back to Verdanturf, to relax a bit a heal up my pokémon. Mauville was probably closer but I would only go to that town if absoutely necessary. It was a pretty standard operation, in and out of the centre in less than ten minutes, and as far as nurse joy could…

Fading rage

The continuous battles riled up my pokémon and Kirlia began to venture out into the tall grass, searching for new opponents. A wild gothita came running towards me, fleeing. The attacker turned out to be my ally, whom cornered the pokémon and proceeded to strike it with confusion and magical leaf, finishing off the opponent….

Knowledge denied

The energy rose to the sky and there was no sound other than the familiar ding from the pokénav, indicating an increase in experience for Kirlia. The screen showed relevant information about her stats and that a new move had become available should I choose it. “Calm mind” was the name of the move, but…

Reckless

The pokémon kept coming, each one more deranged than its predecessor and I was unable to determine the cause of such abnormal behaviour. Another wild volbeat attacked out of nowhere, missing my pokémon by little more than a centimetre. Its eyes blurry with rage as it charged once more but Kirlia dodged the damage easily…

Restless

Peace in the tall grass, or at least that was what I thought up until I saw movement near the other side, a tall figure running but I did not have enough time to tell what it was because another attack nearly missed Kirlia’s head, a powerful “psybeam”. A little, wild gothita was leering from…

Rampage

As soon as the wild sneasel began evaporating I saw movement in the same direction, fast movement, leaves flying about. Something was angry, agitated and fast. Kirlia readied herself for incoming danger and as expected, a wild pokémon jumped up and attacked, lading near Kirlia who just managed to avoid the damage. This was one…

Ravage

I changed spots and went to the other tall grass place nearby, grass which was apparently being cut by something or someone. Bunches of leaves were thrown in the air and it didn’t take long to figure out why. An angry sneasel was cutting through without any regard for life, be it pokémon or not….

Color swirl

Kirlia hadn’t gone back to her pokéball yet and there were no pokémon in sight. She began twirling on tip of her feet like a little ballerina. Leaves started to appear around her body as she increased the speed of the spin. Colors spread throughout each of them, putting on quite a show. The swirl…

Short-lived light

Like so many other pokémon, volbeat seemed to have a counterpart, the other side of the coin. In this case it was almost a copy except for the color scheme. The illumise that appeared donned mostly tones of purple and was more feminine than the previous adversary. Kirlia attacked with “confusion” and finished the battle…
