… still going…

Among things that needed be done with, one was the excess of weak and unworthy pokémon. Illumises, mienfoos, volbeats and alike, every single one of them was less than expected, they were nothing more than another pebble on the long road to power. Another wild, sub-optimal pokémon appeared, a weakling volbeat, not a big stepping…

… and going…

With half the morning done, the sun was starting to make its presence felt and pokémon started to appear more frequently. The next wild one to face us was a Gothita and even though its appearance was fragile, it lost no time and did some damage on Trapinch, leaving her below the half mark on…

It keeps going…

One pokémon went down and another promptly took its place, an Illumise danced its way into the battlefield and was soon shot down with a fierce attack from my Trapinch. “Feint attack” destroyed the wild pokémon before it knew what had happened. My ally returned to my side and waited for a new challenger to…

Resume

A wild Mienfoo jumped in front of me, almost demanding battle, so battle we did. Trapinch hit a single attack and took the enemy down, finishing the confrontation almost before it began. My pokémon ran back to me as I heard the pokénav signal an increase in experience, allowing it to learn a new move….

Blank

I remember little to nothing from the days that followed, just sadness and anger. Somehow I made my way to a pokécenter and a bed, on which I just hibernated, crying myself to sleep several times. I only got up to eat and to use the bathroom. One of those times I looked in on…

Last call

That was it, I was down to my last pokémon. Kadabra leapt out of his pokéball without needing any orders and face the enemy with an aggressive stance. – You sure about this? Won’t you just call it quits? You have no way of winning this now you know? Surely you must realize this. I…

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…
