Kirlia, though she would never admit it, had been severely injured in the last battle and was in need of some rest.
I tried recalling her once, twice, three times without any success, she did everything in order to avoid her pokéball, including swatting it back at me. In the end I had to resort to an order in the most threatening voice I could muster. She did not like it and glared at me, but obeyed.
It was time for another pokémon to take the spotlight and I knew which one I wanted to train, Roggenrola.
