There doesn't have to be any kind of battle whatsoever if that is what the author wishes. We try to give writers as much freedom as possible, with no limitations on story content.

The grade outcome should be determined by the overall story itself, not technicalities. There really aren't any requirements apart from length and the involvement of the Pokemon some way or another.

So seeing as that was the only thing preventing you from passing this, I'm gonna go ahead and say that Abra is captured.

Sorry about that, Splish. And enjoy your Abra, Valiantly Vaporeon.
Oh, really? Gosh, I'm dreadfully sorry. I'm not too sure when this rule was changed but I've always graded stories in this way after reading that it was a rule somewhere. Woops.

Sorry about that, Vaporeon! And sorry Emma, xD.
