I got closer to the nearby pond, searching for different pokémon to face, but the one that appeared was just another one I had already defeated several times, a ducklett.
It actually rode on a wave until its small yellow feet hit the dirt and only then did I release my ally.
Zorua made his big entrance onto the battlefield as usual, with more twirls and back flips than I could count.
As soon as he stopped, the enemy looked like it was readying an attack but my pokémon wouldn’t have it and faded out of sight. A few seconds after, the enemy ducklett was down on the ground, lifeless. My pokémon had inflicted a one hit kill with “Feint attack”.
