The recently deceased Illumise began evaporating as the last orbs of energy from the previous one rose up into the sky. I had not yet noticed just how low the sun was. There weren’t many battles left in the day. My eyes came back down and settled upon a twirling Illumise, just like the one…

Another one

Movement and then another Illumise appeared, jumping into the fray. My ally did not hesitate and struck true but this wild one managed to inflict confusion on my pokémon. No attack connected but we also avoided self-damage. The status however, did not last long and Trapinch finally managed to land a blow, then another and…

Sweeping the floor

A rustle between the blades and the rush of steps were all the prelude we got as a wild Illumise jumped in front of Trapinch. It twirled several times on the same spot, pausing every few seconds in a different pose, almost as if it was taunting us. My ally didn’t have much patience and…

Mean green

I made my way to the other side of the road and into a small secluded patch of grass where I had found an item ealier. No wild pokémon jumped out and I was able to breathe for a moment, to take in the peaceful surroundings and smell the nearby flower fields. A gust of…

Forced exchange

The energy had not yet fully dissipated and a new wild Volbeat had already jumped into the fray. The antennae were pointing straight at us, unleashing several bolts of energy in the form of an attack, a “Confuse Ray”. My Trapinch didn’t seem affected, at least until a move was attempted on our part. My…

Rinse and repeat

I put away the recently captured pokémon and softly passed my hand along Trapinch, calming her down the best I could. She did not want to be calm and the fact that the tall blades of grass kept shaking did not help. Another wild Mienfoo jumped in front of my ally and assumed a battle…

Softer beat

As I had expected, this spot was still buzzing with action. The wild Mienfoo had barely finshed evaporating when a new pokémon entered the fray. At first sight, I though I was facing a Volbeat with peculiar colours but my pokénav stated otherwise. This was an Illumise, usually paired with a Volbeat but an entirely…

Energy to good use

The center at verdanturf didn’t take long to get my trapinch back to full health and promptly offered me a nice vegetarian lunch, locally harvested they said… I could not care less. I pratically chugged down the food and ran out the door, anxious to continue training. Trapinch was also eager, seeing as she jumped…

Bring on the next one!

A bead of sweat crawled down my face as the heat from the sun increased. Trapinch didn’t go back to her ball and instead drank some water. I scratched the back of her head, congratulating her on a job well done. The relaxation didn’t last long though seeing as she quickly turned around and started…

Mienfoo fighting

I had barely put the recently caught Gothita in my bag when a shadow jumped high above the grass and landed right in front of me, in a three point stance. The wild pokémon then proceeded to adjust his form and prepare for battle, it was a Mienfoo. My Trapinch growled excitedly and rushed towards…

Little , purple and peculliar

It turned out that this was no ordinary patch of grass, or maybe it was and I was just the lucky one. New and strange pokémon kept appearing and the one that followed Solosis was no exception. Trapinch leapt to action, growling in anticipation and was once again stunned by the awkwardness of this new…

It’s green… also weird

The sun blinded me for a moment but did not stop me. I was walking with purpose, straight out of town and back to route 117. The wild pokémon there would provide proper training for my team. My feet had barely made it through the first blades of grass when I felt movement. Trapinch left…
