Zorua, not zero

My pokénav sounded off as soon as the houndour left the battlefield , indicating an increase in experience for one of my pokémon, namely Zorua who had now risen to level 28.

Oops

The unlikely duo I was now facing released their respective pokémon, a Cacnea for Shayla and a Houndour for Bryant. I readied myself to face them but when I checked, I had already two pokémon out on the battlefield. My Roggenrola and Zorua were eagerly awaiting my orders for battle, unfortunately for me these two…

Third time’s the charm

I switched out my pokémon for Riolu, considering that Zorua was hanging on by a thread. My pokémon hit the enemy with a straight attack that didn’t seem effective at first glance, but ended up dealing critical damage, ending the battle. Lombre fell to the ground and began dissipating into small orbs of energy.

Green Thumbs

Zorua attacked as soon as the enemy pokéball opened, hitting the enemy with full force but barely doing damage. My pokénav identified the green pokémon as a Lombre. Orange small mouth and fingers and a green hat resembling a plant, these features reminded me of a previous pokémon I had faced and after a quick…

Battle bypass

My opponent struggled to find another pokéball in his belt, not even looking twice at his now dying ally. “Useless, totally useless… I’ll have to find better ones.” His hand was grasping another pokéball. “This one will do better!” My pokénav sounded off as the new ball flew through the air, indicating an increase in…

Leaves not nuzzled

I recalled Roggenrola almost as soon as he hit the ground. He was in no state to battle, the slightest hit could cause him to faint and I dared not risk losing him. The pokémon I switched him out for was eager for action but eagerness wasn’t enough. Zorua prepared an attack but was outmaneuvered…

Clutch

Zorua landed in the middle of the arena ready for battle, unfortunately so was audino. “Charm voice” was unleashed even before my pokémon became fully aware of his surroundings. It was super effective and did a considerable amount of damage. My pokémon took the hit but countered almost immediately, finishing off what remained of the…

Period

I was so focused on my pokénav that I didn’t even notice my Zorua had vanished for a second and porygon was now fainting and being recalled to its pokéball. It had been a super effective attack and it ended the battle.

Cut down and replaced

Zorua rushed towards deerling as soon as it could and struck it with “Cut”, finishing off the pokémon and forcing the enemy trainer to recall it. My pokénav sounded off and its screen showed that my Roggenrola, even though it was in its pokéball, had increased in experience, allowing him to learn a new attack….

Replies

Both my pokémon were readying their next volley of attacks, only this time they were not fast enough, the enemy porygon managed to strike first with “Psybeam”. A direct hit on Riolu that left his health close to null. I considered switching him out as I had done before but my ally just stood up…

Next Questions

My Roggenrola was not in any state to keep on battling and so I switched him out for Riolu. Deerling took advantage of this switch and managed to spread some seeds around my pokémon, which took very little to sprout and was promptly ready to sap health. Zorua stretched his claws in preparation for an…

Roggenrola readied another “Headbutt” at the same time porygon began glowing in a bright yellow light. The glow lasted a few minutes before evaporating in small floating orbs. All traces from any damage had been wiped clean from the enemy as it was now fully revitalized. I did not see that coming and neither did…
