The bright light of a volbeat pierced through the fog and Kirlia struck immediately, making the enemy face the ground, but not before it could retaliate. A swirl of colour emanated from the volbeat and hit Kirlia in the head.
My pokémon looked dazed and her eyes could not focus. I tried calling her several times but she couldn’t get her bearings. She had been hit by a “confuse ray”.
I thought about recalling her in order to avoid self-inflicting damage but she did not wait for my commands and attacked blindly.
Luck seemed to be on our side because the attack succeeded and volbeat took the full damage of “confusion”.
