Entombment

It didn’t take long for my pokémon to prove me wrong, almost like she was inside my head. The perky illumise that appeared wasn’t taken down by an encore of the previous attack and instead found itself buried under several heavy boulders. “Rock Tomb” took down the wild pokémon in a single move but not…

Head hitter

It seemed like a change in attacks for my pokémon was the right move to make, it had become the default move for Aron and also looked like the most fun to use. A wild volbeat approached and my ally was eager to greet it with her current signature move, bashing her hardened head into…

Solid twenty-three

The bout that followed was over in a flash, ending the life of a wild volbeat as if it was nothing. Aron suffered only a mild inconvenience as the enemy struggled against inevitable defeat. Sure it meant the loss of a few hit points but the payoff was well worth it, promptly confirmed by my…

Effective claws are effective

I began wondering if Aron’s attack roster wasn’t too violent, after all, there was no need to inflict all that pain and blood splatter in order to win. A wild swablu approached, fluffy white wings and perky flight were not an indicator of a vigorous, incoming battle but were a good exercise nonetheless. Aron did…

Another light down

There was no wind whatsoever, not even a breeze, so imagine my surprise when I found myself enveloped in thick fog. The moonlight got a little dimmer and I could see a few faded lights bobbing around me, one of them moving in my direction. As usual, Aron reacted before I even knew what was…

Sliced and diced

A small, translucent orb approached and I knew a wild solosis was coming in for a battle but my pokémon had already reacted and disappeared into the tall grass. Next thing I noticed were a few flashes of light crossing the wild pokémon and its shape just disappearing in small crumbs that scattered. Aron had…

Slippery shell

A wild ducklett emerged from the nearby pond and headed straight for us, somehow appearing to be completely wet and dripping almost nothing as it waddled. Aron charged the wild pokémon, stretching her claws in anticipation. “Metal Claw” was used as the enemy jumped and sled across Aron’s shiny carapace. There was a loud screech…

Confused but unstoppable

Aron had barely managed to come back to my side when a wobbling light approached, the tail of a wild volbeat. My pokemon rushed in with glistening claws but somehow miscalculated the distance and missed her target, a movement that wasn’t wasted by her opponent. A shiny, swirly beam hit Aron right in the forehead…

Solosis spiked

I’m not that much of a sports follower. Sometimes I catch a game on television of whatever is going on, or I used to but nowadays it’s even rarer. I mention this because even though I’m not a fan, some of the terms are known to me and when I watched Aron execute her next…

One, two, swablu

The shiny, fluffy white wings were almost a welcome sight after all the dark pokémon I had come across but Aron did not see it that way, she just looked at the wild swablu as another target to be taken down. Wild swablu, usually floated above the tall grass, a few meters off the ground,…

Gothita greeting

Spotting a gothita in the wild was hard enough due to its small stature but it was almost impossible to do so at night. They moved silently across the fields of grass and all of their colors faded into the dark. Aron did not seem to have any problem in sighting them though, she was…

A new trick

My pokénav sounded off, indicating an increase in experience and the screen showed me an option, a new attack for my ally to learn. The new move was “Iron Head”, one that fit my pokémon way better than one of her other moves. There wasn’t really a choice to be made, the moves spoke for…
