Default Individual RP: Nyurgh

OoC: sorry i couldn't post this earlier, some issues came up. Anyway, you're now ready to go.

***

As you approach the reception desk, you notice nobody is here to welcome you. Pretty strange. You look around for any face, but there's no one.

"Argh!" suddenly someone shouts from behind, surprising you. "So sorry, really!" the young man apologizes. He's probably as old as you are, a late teen at most. "I shouldn't have left the counter, but I heard some noise outside, and currently I'm the only one here, the other Rangers have taken a sick leave or something and left me here to manage things by myself, saying that there wasn't much to do as the Park wasn't very famous yet and there would be hardly any activity from incoming trainers..." he starts rambling, but then suddenly stops. "Sorry. I must be bothering you, right? It's just I'm new here, and- and I'm not too sure as to what to do."

He gets behind the desk, and opens the drawers, obviously looking for something. "Now where did I put that again... Here!" he exclaims, holding up his scavenged treasure. "You... You need to sign this to enter the Park. Here you go." He hands the application sheet down, and holds out a pen too for you to fill. You diligently write all the infos down, and give the paper back to him. He checks it. "So your name's Nyurgh, huh? Funny name... I'm Ranger Hya, nice to meet you." He holds out a hand, the slightly takes it back, only to hold it out again, and retreating it once more. Then he gives up, walks around the desk and gestures for you to follow. "I see you're taking four Pokemon with you. A Scizor, a Wartortle, a Drapion and a Porygon2, right? I just love Porygon2, they're very good-looking in my opinion, but I never got to own one unfortunatly." He keeps on talking as he leads you to a parking lot... and then surpasses it without even glancing that way. As you start to question his reasoning, he notices your unspoken discomfort. "Sorry. I don't have a license yet," he says embarassed. "You'll have to bear with me a little longer, but I promise I won't make you walk all the way there. In, fact, we've arrived."


He stops in an isolated clearing, and all the more you start questioning the young fellow's sanity. He takes two Pokeball from his belt and launches them in the air. "Rue, Mint, I need your help."

From the Pokeballs, two human-shape figures emerged. They look rather scrawny, and kind of elderly too. As the laser light fades, you take a quick note of their features. They both stand on two legs, obviously, and are as tall as you are- though not very muscular, you're pretty sure you could tackle them down if the need arose. They have long triangle-shaped faces, with thick mustaches of the same colour of the face, the arms, the legs: a dark saffron color. Their torso is coated in a dark brown plate mail-like growth, and you wonder how they keep themselves balanced if the thing weights one tenth of how it looks. There are some differences between the two of them: one has shorter mustaches, and wields a couple of teaspoons in the hands- which, as silly as it may be, they're very deadly weapons, following the unwritten rule of Console RPGs- while the other looks much more elderly, but it may be just an impression given by the mystical staff he wields.

"Can you take us to Outer Heaven?" their trainer gently orders them, and they nod in unison, taking place around you and your young companion. "Stay close to me," he tells you, and you feel only too happy to oblige.

The two Alakazam focus their energies, and waves upon waves of mind force build in the catalysts of their powers. An aurora-coloured ring surrounds the four of you, gleaming in the early afternoon's sun. "If this is your first time, I'd suggest you close your eyes..." Ranger Hya suggests, as the aurora ring closes in, and the two Psychic Pokemon discharge the stocked energy.

For a long moment, you feel nothing. You'd be happy to stay that way forever, in a state of Nirvana-esque numbness. But then, you're abruptly brought to reality. With a thud.

To be exact, you fall on your ass. Life's cheap.

"Oww," the Ranger mumbles as he stands up and rubs his back. "That wasn't expected..."

You look around, and the luscious greenery leaves you in awe. You didn't expect the Outer Heaven to be so breathtakingly beautiful...

But that's because the place's not the Outer Heaven at all, not that you had any knowledge of that.

You're in a small area between big old oaks, their trunks so big you'd need at least six or seven people to circle them, the roots sticking out of the ground and painfully akin to veins. The sun washes over you brightly, only to be briefly hidden by fluffy looking clouds. Looking a bith farther, you notice that soon the oaks make place for very big grasslands, in which you see many Grass types playing around, blissfully unaware of you. Even farther, there seem to be a small body of water, but you fail to notice any Water Pokemon activity- maybe you're just too far to notice.

"I... I think this is the wrong place," the Ranger tells you, once again apologizing. "I'm so sorry I can't even explain it in words. You see, my two Alakazam aren't familiar with the island yet, so they... they didn't know the way yet. This is totally my fault- feel free to report me when we get back to the Outpost." He bows deeply, and then takes a breath. "I think we're in the Botanic Garden. It's a very nice place, I loved it ever since they first showed me this place. I always wanted to have an excuse to return..." he stops mid-sentence. "Sorry. Maybe my Pokemon got confused due to my wishes and brought us here unknowingly." He returned the two Pokemon to their Pokeballs. "Let me refresh you the rules of the Park, before we venture here. Once we get in an area there's no turning back until you run out of Pokeball, all your Pokemon faint, or you decide you've had enough. If you need, I think I've got some spare supplies to share, but they're not for free- we need money to keep this running. Second, you can catch as many Pokemon as you want, but at the end of your visit you must release all but one- we're still working on this rule, we'd be happy to receive some feedback from you after we get back. Third, I'm here to watch over you: if you attempt at anything illegal or severly injure one of the Pokemon here, I'm afraid I must escort you out and hand you to the police." He shows you a hand, adding a finger for each rule. "I think that's all. Are we ready to start?"

"I think that's all. Are we ready to start?" the ranger asks me, holding up three fingers.

"You bet!" I reply, unable to contain my emotions.

This was my first visit to the National Park. I came in search of a peaceful escape from the hectic outside world. The Botanic Garden seemed like the perfect place for me to stay. I lean against one of the large oak trees and stared into the sky. I took a deep breath, inhaling the scent of various plant-life. Suddenly, one thing came to mind: catching wild Pokemon. I began casually walking through the area, still savoring the smell of flowers. I wasn't paying attention to my footing and tripped over something.

"What's that!" I yelled, looking at what I tripped over, "Oh, it's just a root..."

I felt some extra weight on my back, but I was able to pull myself up. The sound of something falling on the ground was right behind me. I turned to find an angry wild Pokemon. I had never seen anything like it before.

"What is that thing?" I asked, turning to the Ranger.

Beneath the first timer Trainer, a small pink bulb-looking Pokemon was shruddering, the long leaves on the top of its head swaying as if a strong wind was shaking them. Its rather big ears were lowered as it looked in fear at the unknown man.

"H... Hoppip!" it cried.

"What is that thing?" you ask, turning your head to the Ranger accompaning you.

Bad idea.

Suddenly, you feel as if a soccer ball had hit your guts, and you fall behind, flat on the ground. You look for your assailant: it's a small brown creature, with a tan pattern around its eyes and an almost gray cap of sorts, that has various circles around the stubby stem on top of it. The small creature has no arms, but those small feet seem more than adept at whatever need it may have. It seems rather angry, and very protective of the other Pokemon.

"Oh my..." Hyacinth says. "They're an Hoppip and a Seedot. It's quite a rare sight, to see two wild Pokemon battling together- and the latter even seems quite devoted!"

***

Encounter #1 (14 Encounters left)

Seedot (unknown gender/Ability/Nature) 10/10
Hoppip (uknown gender/Ability/Nature) 10/10

OoC:

I'd have rather expected a post a little more... complex, but hey, guess this works as well. The tackle-like attack with which Seedot attacked you hurts a bit, but you're capable of moving just fine.

OOC: Lol, I guess it's a good thing I have two Anti-Grass Pokemon with me.

IC: I hit the ground hard, breathing heavily, that Tackle had left me short on breath. The brown Acorn Pokemon and the little pink thing looked really intimidating right now. I reached into my pocket and pulled out two red-and-white balls. With a quick motion of my arm, I released the Pokeballs. They hit the soft terrain, opening in white flashes of white. The right-most one released a red bug with large claws. Her body shined like steel. Scizor looked fiercly at my attackers.

The ball on the left opened to reveal a large purple Pokemon. His body was formed of elliptical segments. His mouth was barred with a pair of sharp fangs. Instead of hands, this Pokemon had pincers, and a pronged tail as well. Drapion roared and charged at Seedot, not bothering to wait for my command.

"Drapion, hold on a sec- never mind," I sighed, then I turned to Scizor, "I know you want a bigger challenge Scizor, I know we'll find one. But for now, we can't take any chances, use Metal Claw and then chain it with X-Scissor."

Always willing to give 110%, Scizor obediently followed my commands. She first used Metal Claw which, as the name implied, surrounded her claws with a silver shine, increasing the potential damage they could inflict. She beat her wings and hovered gently over the ground, letting her claws overlap. When she neared the pink Grass-type, she prepared X-scissor by giving her arms a green glow. Hit or miss, the result of the attack would leave a faint green "X" hovering in the air.

ooc: How's that?

OoC: I've seen worse... But I'm still punishing you for the not very creative post. Watch out!

Oh, and it wasn't a Tackle, but well... I'm not holding it agaisnt you. Let's just say it charged at you, because Seedot can't learn Tackle.

***

The steel red mantis daringly flew at her designated opponent, brandishing her claws that glew like hard steel. The metal wings fluttered heavily to keep her airborne, even so close to the ground.

The small pink Pokemon watched helplessly as its opponent got neared, trembling in fear and starting to panick, and, as she was about to hit, a huge spray of bullets hit the Scizor's face, barely grazing it but still making it lose the momentum. As she turned her head sideways to check who had attacked it- it was the Seedot that had shot the Bullet Seed, trying to protect its friend- the pink bulb hopped on the ground and bounced, trying to get away from the assailant, and unknowingly hit her as well, whacking the unaware steel bug in the face as it bounced back.

She truly missed her target, and failed to connect any attack for reasons outside her area of competence.

"Watch out!" Hyacinth reprimanded. "This is a double battle, Pokemon won't hold back just because you only send one to attack. You need to make up a strategy, you can't just go along with the flow."

***

Drapion 100%
Scizor 80.24%

Vs

seedot 100%
Hoppip 97%

***
OoC:
due to Scizor's steel skin, Hoppip received collateral damage after the Bounce attack, thats why it lost some HP. The calculations are half actually calc'd and half made up, because I believe Scizor should've sustained a little more damage in the games but it does have a very hard skin.

Your turn now.

OOC: Time to step it up a little then.

IC: After watching Scizor take a hit from both Hoppip and Seedot's attacks, Drapion stopped his charge. I soon realized that Scizor taking damage had struck a nerve. If I wanted to pull this off, I had to overreact, big time.

"Scizor, hang in there!" I yelled, turning to Drapion, and pointing at the red bug, "See? That is what happens when you get reckless! If you let her take hits like that, Scizor will never return your feelings."

Drapion winced, the idea of Scizor never loving him back struck a chord. The big purple scorpion leapt to the Pincer Pokemon's side, extending a claw, it seemed only love could break an Adamant personality. Scizor graciously accepted and pulled herself up. It looks like I finally had a team. I took a moment to scan the surroundings. Behind my Pokemon was open space, but there seemed to be a large tree behind the wild attackers.

"I sure hope I don't get kicked out of the park for this..." I thought to myself, "Scizor, use X-Scissor on that branch above you! Drapion, wait for them to dodge, then pick a target and use Cross Poison! Scizor, as soon as Drapion launches an attack, hit the other Pokemon with Bullet Punch!"

Just as before, Scizor crossed her claws. This time though, she fiercly beat her steel wings in order to reach the branch that was eight feet above the Grass-types. She flicked her claws, cutting the branch, sending it plummeting down to the wild Pokemon. Drapion folded his arms waiting for his target, Seedot, to make a mistake. He would then uncross his arms, forming a light purple "X", if it hit, there was a chance of inflicting poison on the opponent.

OoC: finally. I've been itching for some romantic involvement... in general. It's not easy to find someone to try and exploit this. And I'm sorry, I didn't notice that Drapion started attacking by himselfi n the other post... Good thing this is only the trial run

***

After his rash tackling missed his target, the venomous scorpion Pokemon got admonished for his actions. "See? That's what happens when you get reckless! If you let her take hits like that, Scizor will never return your feelings!"

Hyacinth was surprised at the reaction of the trainer. He wasn't sure if it was a scolding or if he was just trying to yell, as in cheering, him on. Fact is, it worked. The pig-headed Drapion now carefully listened to his trainer, and stood there waiting, while his battle partner, which he wished to have as life partner as well, started the combo attack.

The red steel mantis did an amazing leap, reaching for a branch high up over the two puny grass Pokemon, the acorn watching carefully, but, not resisting to wait for her to finish up, he started focusing, and a greenish aura surrounded it. With a small hop, star-shaped beams appeared from beneath it, and after a quick lap around the grass Pokemon they shot upwards, right as Scizor managed to hack off the branch from the tree, following with a somersault over the falling object to give it more momentum, then landed on a nearby branch, waiting for Hoppip's move.

However, Drapion was having none of that. As soon as Seedot's attention was diverted he rushed forward, holding out his pinchers as they glew sickly, as poison oozed out of the tips of his stingers and coated the tips. With a roar, he came within attack range, and struck the Seedot harshly. Even if it managed to duck and avoid the direct attack, one of the pinchers pummeled it, and sent it flying.

Meanwhile, the branch managed to take out the first wave of stars, and fell way off from where it was intended to. The remaining of the Swift attack, however, aimed itself at Scizor, and Drapion was quick to react: his tail raised, the twin stingers glew brightly and got shot toward the beams, quickly being replaced and shot again, hitting the stars and utterly destroying them, showering the Pin Missile user in a golden rain.

Hyacinth shook his head after watching in awe the scene. "Are you trying to get those Pokemon killed?!" he yelled shocked. "You're lucky it managed to somewhat avoid taking too much damage, but tone it down. Even if it's not you that's dealing with the aftermaths, I'd like you to think about the consequences a bit more!"

The pink bulb, still panicked, kept bouncing around franctically, trying to get as far as it could from the two big scary Pokemon, as Scizor kept track of its movements. When she thought it was the best time to attack, so she did, and lunged forward punch first, attaining a speed level no Scizor had naturally any business with.

The collision seemed certain, but then Hoppip made a sudden unexpected turn, and missed the punch, instead getting blown away by the collision with the steel body. Unable to retreat the attack, Scizor let the Bullet Punch hit the ground, and unsurprisingly, she got stuck there, with a claw trapped underground.

***

Drapion 100%
Scizor 80.24% Restrained

Vs

Seedot 34.12%
Hoppip 80% Panicked

***
OOC:
If I let Cross Poison hit at full power, it would've been an overkill. However, you didn't develop your post nearly well enough for me to let you do as you wish. Get a little more descriptive if you want your attack to be more effective.

i guess I'm interfering too much with the battle anyway, with me having Drapion do a last-minute Pin Missile to save his damsel in distress xD but hey, love is serious business. Like Pokemon.

OOC: Lol, I think you're doin' fine. By the way, remember my Scyther story you graded? Seeing as Scizor is incapacitated at the moment, I'll have to borrow a few moves from that.

IC:

"Are you trying to get those Pokemon killed?!" the ranger yelled in shock. "You're lucky it managed to somewhat avoid taking too much damage, but tone it down. Even if it's not you that's dealing with the aftermaths, I'd like you to think about the consequences a bit more!"

"Drapion!" the orge scorpion shot back.

"Calm down buddy," I said, raising my arms, "right now we have to focus on getting beating these guys and getting Scizor out of the ground!"

Drapion looked at me, ready to obey my commands. I returned his glance, and slowly made my move. Hoppip stared me down, ready to flee at the slightest unexpected surprise. I took my bag and set it on the ground. Then I slowly walked towards the broken branch. The pink bud paid close attention to my movements. I knew that if I made the slightest sound, I would scare it off. I wasn't intent on catching it, but Ranger Hya was right, my Pokemon put too much on the line for me to just let this battle end. I stopped and bent down, grabbing a broken section of the branch. I slowly moved both hands in order to grip it like a baseball bat.

"Drapion, hit Hoppip with Fire Fang!" I yelled.

The orge scorpion charged the pink bud, barring his fangs. Using the flammable toxins in his body, Drapion surrounded his big fangs with a roaring fire. As he charged, he gave Scizor an impressive look. If the fangs locked into their target, Hoppip would be caught in a fiery Hell contained in my Poison/Dark-type's mouth. This attack would be incredibly effective against the little Grass-type, of course, it could backfire big time.

As for me, I grasped the piece of tree in my hands and charged towards the small nut. I was at a loss between my home-run swing and my putt putt golf skills. As far as I'm concerned, no Pokemon honestly expects a human to enter the fray. That is my ultimate ace, I'm not just a re-assuring voice, a controlling mastermind, I'm a fighter, an ally, but most importantly; I'm a friend. Scizor watched in awe, falling in love with what she saw, it wasn't me, it wasn't Drapion, it was our fighting spirit. This battle against some of the most pathetic of Pokemon failed to drain our spirits. I took to mind the most memorable quote I had ever heard.

"Smell ya later," the voice of Gary Oak echoed through my mind.

"Smell ya later Seedot," I said, swinging the branch with all my might.

Ooc: I might have cranked out a bit of cheese there.

As the ranger admonished the Trainer and his Pokemon, the Drapion roars, scaring him stiff. "Calm down, buddy. Right now we have to focus on beating these guys and getting Scizor out of the ground," you tell him.

Drapions looks at you, then at his beloved, that was tugging her pincher to free herself. The purple scorpion nodds at you, and waits for your orders.

Meanwhile, Ranger Hyacinth watches as you pick up a branch and start brandishing as a weapon. "That's... That's not what I meant when I said to think about the consequences!" he tells you weakly. "That's too dangerous, you're not resilient like Pokemon are!" You seem deaf at his pleads, though.

"Drapion, hit Hoppip with Fire Fang!" you yell.

Drapion turns back and forth between you and Scizor, torn up as to which lead to follow, if his heart or his loyalty. His heart told him to help Scizor first, for no other reason but to get her out of harm's way, but his trainer had ordered him otherwise.

With a sudden decision, he rushes to the red mantis, tugging the twin pinchers in the ground around her claw, and digging in a frenzy, as she kept struggling to get free.

You lung at your opponent, that after a moment of obvious dismay quickly recollected itself and started charging an attack, without having too much of luck in that department as you arrive, swinging the weapon with all the strength you can muster. "Smell ya later!" you say as you whack the acorn Pokemon on the head, cracking its cap in some points.

However, Seedot doesn't seem fazed- maybe he's yet to feel the blow, or more likely you're not nearly as strong as a Pokemon- and has now finished charging the attack, spitting on you jet-bullets seeds. You shield your eyes to avoid any severe injury, but the bullets are sharp and fast enough to cause some shallow cuts on your whole body, wherever they hit. Some especially nasty ones keep hitting where you got tackled by Seedot earlier, who knows if on purpose (but extremely unlikely).

Drapion meanwhile had lunged at his designated opponent, flames coating the outer part of his teeth as he quickly closed up the small pink Pokemon, that having calmed down a little, quickly went back to panick as it had no time to run away before it got locked into the poison scorpion's mouth, whittling like crazy and crying out loudly to be set free.

And then it fainted. Drapion tossed it away and turned, waiting for a praise from his trainer, only to notice he was being attacked. Anger filling his eyes, he stampeded to the small weakened acorn, quickly followed by Scizor.

Hoppip, Timid, male with Leaf Guard FAINTED.
Seedot 28.15%

Scizor 80.24% Enraged
Drapion 100% Enraged

OOC:

That's why people don't fight agaisnt Pokemon one-on-one. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the effort, but endangering yourself isn't going to do any good to your Pokemon. I hope you weren't planning on catching Seedot, 'cause it doesn't look like they're stopping that easily, especially Drapion. You can try, though. Who knows what may happen?

Ooc: Lol, I took a shot in the dark, and I got shot. Live and learn.

Ic: "Crap!" I yelled, taking the full force of a Bullet Seed.

My arms barely saved my eyes. Every second, several seeds dig into my body. I was in a huge jam, my reckless personality had endangered not only me, but my Pokemon as well. The seeds hurt like hell, but the fall from my pedestal of ignorance hurt my soul.

"Drapion!" the ogre scorpion yelled.

Suddenly, the bullets stopped. I looked up to find my Poison-type's large body absorbing the attacks. Tears began welling up in my eyes. Not too long ago, Drapion wouldn't even wait for me to issue a command, now it received an attack that my own foolishness brought upon me.

But that wasn't the full extent of my Pokemon's rage. Scizor flew behind the Acorn Pokemon, giving Drapion a cue of some sort. Both Pokemon rose their arms, Drapion's began excreting poison, while Scizor's emitted a faint green glow.. Scizor charged, using her large wings to barely get off the ground. Drapion four legs moved as fast as they ever could. At first I cursed my Pokemon, if Seedot had dodged, which it had a bastard habit to do so, they would likely collide and both would receive each other's attack. Then both Pokemon surprised me, they both leaned slightly to the right. This meant that if Seedot stood still, both cross attacks would miss!

"What the hell are you guys doing?" I wanted to ask, but my wounds were too fresh to do anything but watch.

The look I saw in Scizor's eyes, it differed from the way they normally look. While they mantained that sense of Hardiness, they seemed to burn with passion. I knew Drapion was the same way. My Pokemon planned on embracing each other where Seedot stood. So even if Seedot held its ground and was left un-phased by the pair of cross attacks that would be inches over its head, it would be sandwiched between the two Pokemon!

Default Re: Individual RP: Nyurgh

Hyacinth couldn't stand back now: those two Pokemon would surely kill that Seedot if he didn't do something. It was highly unlikely that, in their fury charge, they'd plan something, and anyways, it was nothing that the Ranger could notice, from the place he stood.

Drapion had shielded himself with his arms when he got between his trainer and the spray of bullets, taking minimal damage from that attack, and then stampeded forward, pinchers first, to deal with the baby green Pokemon that had dared to attack his trainer.

And on the other side, there was Scizor, that after needing a moment to recollect herself after being freed from the ground, charged to the Seedot as well, her pinchers glowing green as she charged a X-Scissor aimed at it.

Franctically turning between the two Pokemon, the Grass Pokemon didn't know what to do, as it looked way hard to avoid both attacks and it was growing tired from the battle. With a last-minute resolution, it... Hardened. The acorn braced and then focused its energies to quickly reinforce its wood-like skin, hoping to minimize the incoming damage.

"Rue! Mint! Use Barrier on that Seedot!" Hyacinth ordered throwing two simple Pokeball in the air.

The two Alakazam rose from the spheres, and started focusing their energies on the smaller Pokemon, and, not that anybody had a guess as to what was happening, layer upon layer of thick air came to life, creating circular shaped shields between the Seedot and its attackers.

Scizor and Drapion, as if in sync, pummeled the energy shields with their attacks, spending the momentum trying to break them, and successfully managed to do so, their attacks having spent almost all their energy to surpass the special defenses.

Then the two Pokemon braced each other, giving the small nutty Pokemon no chance to escape. Hyacinth dropped down with a relieved sigh, as the two Pokemon didn't seem to have given in to the rage, or maybe the Barrier had given them a little time to cool off and change strategy. Anyway, they didn't kill the Seedot, and that was what mattered.

Until, however, Seedot started glowing. Knowing it was done for, it started charging, deciding to get off with a bang!

"Get away!" Ranger Hyacinth yelled. "It's going to Explode!"

***

Seedot 28.15% Hardened

VS

Scizor 80.24%
Drapion 96.89%

***

Your Pokemon are around the Seedot, and it's charging an Explosion. I wonder, what are you going to do?

Ooc: Ah, backed into a corner. Chances are, with my reckless attitude, Scizor and Drapion are screwed.

Ic: "Son of a-" I gasped, struggling to come up with a solution.

It was in that moment of truth that the answer was lying on the ground, unconscious from an earlier attack. Seedot attacked me after Hoppip hit the ground when I stood up. When Scizor attacked Hoppip, it had fought back. I had no way of being certain if Seedot did have those intentions. Hell, I didn't even know if Seedot can understand me, but I had no choice.

"Seedot! If you can hear me, for god's sake, wait!" I yelled, "Hoppip will be caught in the blast. You don't want to hurt it, do you? I'm sorry I scared you, I was stupid. I should've been paying more attention! I've been reckless, I could've hurt Hoppip, I could've damaged the gardens, the worst part is: I put my Pokemon, no my friends in danger. Seedot, if you stop the attack right now, we'll leave you and Hoppip alone!"

And here I was, literally reasoning with a nut. I had seen it work on potential suicide risks, but then again, the police and the jumper always spoke the same language. My Pokemon were brave, even in the face of this possibly devastating attack. I only hoped that it wasn't too late...

Ooc: This was better than Plan A, I think that would've made me the first ever fatality in the National Park.

Hyacinth couldn't do much but watch astonished at the surreal scene that was taking place in front of him. Nyurgh, the trainer he was accompanying, was trying to hold off an Explosion attack from a Seedot, unconveniently sandwiched between his two Pokemon, by... talking sense to the acorn Pokemon.

He was at a loss as to who was the nuttier of the two.

Smelling troubles, he started rummaging though the bag he tied to his waist, looking for something useful, in case things went wrong.

And they were.

It seemed that the small grass Pokemon had decided that, tired as it was feeling, it didn't matter if Hoppip was in the area, as the blast would've most likely died down before reaching him. Not to count, there were Scizor and Drapion right around it, and they'd absorb most of the blast, if not all, that the tiny nut-like Pokemon could make.

Or maybe it didn't think at all. Maybe it was just too late for it to just stop the attack like that, or it hadn't really given a nut about the human's pleads. Who knows what weird thoughts travelled in a Pokemon's head?

The seed Pokemon seemed to quickly reaching its climax, when its attention was attracted by something else, and it made a "ooh- shiny!" face, as if to confirm that.

"Whew, it worked," Hyacinth said with a relieved sigh. He had thrown a clockwork Clefairy doll hoping it'd distract the Seedot, and it seemed to work... momentarily. It wouldn't last long, as the Pokemon wasn't likely to forget it was surrounded. "Mint, quickly, Teleport it away!" he ordered to his female Alakazam before his diversion lost effect.

The moustached female psychic, loyal to her trainer's order, crossed her spoon and aimed them at the small Pokemon between the two damn giant bugs. Then she shot a wave of invisible energy, that made her arms recoil as if she had fired a gun, and the grass Pokemon quickly disappeared from their sight, landing on a tree not too faraway but enough for it not to pursue vengeance- baby Pokemon, and most basic Pokemon as well to an extent, were known to have the attention span of a curious monkey, and they never dwelt too much on a matter unless it was in the genetics, strictly speaking.

Hopefully, it'd have no reason to seek vengeance, as the Hoppip seemed to come to his senses, and true to his nature ran away to hide.

***

Encounter #1 - Finished.

Seedot (male/hasty/chlorophyll) fled.
Hoppip (male/timi/leaf guard) fainted, then fled.

Scizor 80.24%
Drapion 86.89%

***

The young Ranger picked up the Pokedoll before it could run too far and he'd lose it. It could've come handy again, who knew.

Then he turned to the trainer, a fit of anger burning in his eyes. "Are you harbouring a death wish? Or are you simply stupid? This isn't some kind of videogame, where you can take your chances and push the reset button if things go wrong. You're lucky it was a Seedot the Pokemon you fought, but what if you were faced with, let's say, a Grotle? Or a Shiftry? Those things can be pretty mean if they're given the chance, and you wouldn't have walked out of this with mere bruises." He took a breath before continuing, putting a hand on one of his Alakazam. "A trainer's Pokemon's primary job is to keep their master from being harmed. We share deep bonds with them, and that's why they agree to risk so much for us- because they know that we're so much frailer than them, in comparison. And so we trainers do as well, by giving them a different point of view to work on while battling. We issue commands because supposedly we can see things they can't, as a thank-you for their loyal protection."

After his lecture finished, he regained his composture. "Sorry. I got carried away. It's just- you worried your two Pokemon sick," he gestured to Scizor and Drapion, that had freed eachother from the earlier deathlock, "and for what? Playing hero? Or the peacemaker? You can't just recklessly rush in a battle agaisnt a Pokemon, you're no match for them. You need thought-out plans, useful tactics, careful strategies. Keep it this way, and you'll only endanger yourself more, not to count your Pokemon, because as you've seen they deeply care about you and won't stand back, even if it might cost them their life."

OoC:
I wonder what was plan A... surely couldn't have been more farfetched than this. I was really tempted to let Seedot explode and let you deal with the aftermaths of having an injured Drapion with you, but I got advised not to, as we Rangers are supposed to prevent the worst from happening. I may be sounding a little harsh now, but you were stretching it a lot. To the point of tearing it.

Ooc: Lol, Plan A was to run between my two Pokemon and try and throw Seedot away.

Ic: "Are you harbouring a death wish? Or are you simply stupid? This isn't some kind of videogame, where you can take your chances and push the reset button if things go wrong.

Keep it this way, and you'll only endanger yourself more, not to count your Pokemon, because as you've seen they deeply care about you and won't stand back, even if it might cost them their life."

I wanted to argue, but something told me to shut the hell up. I looked at my two Pokemon, they were mentally strong, but they looked ready to cry at any moment. I kicked around the dirt a little bit. Was it my fault things had gone wrong? Screw it, I'm the only one to blame. I picked up my bag and threw it around my back. Then I walked up to the ogre scorpion and the pincer Pokemon. Drapion walked towards me, extending one of his claws. I brushed it away, slightly wincing at the wounds I had received. I turned to Scizor, she was the first Pokemon I had ever caught on my own.

"You guys... have been great," I said, tears welling in my eyes, "I'm a damn fool, I wouldn't hold it against you two if you left me and stayed in the National Park," I sobbed slightly, "I'm sure another guest would do a better job raising you two. I'll just press this button on your Pokeballs, and you will no longer be in danger of my jackass decisions."

I grabbed my two Pokemon's pokeballs, the only thing that really proved they were mine. By simply twisting the button, the red beam would free them from the trainer's ownership. I was about to adjust the first Pokeball when a big claw latched onto my arm. Scizor's big steel claw clamped down on my arm.

"Trust me, it's for your own good," I said, "Ranger Hya is right, a good trainer issues commands because he or she can see things that you guys can't. But it's pretty damn obvious, you guys know a lot more than I do."

I wriggled out of Scizor's claw and moved my arm closer to the Pokeball. Just a twist, and then the press of a button, they would be safe from now on. I would release my other Pokemon as well, and have them sent to the best place for them in the National Park. I was choking on the tears I had been surpressing. Finally I grew the stones and lunged my hand towards the ball, if I got it over quickly, I'd have no way of hesitating.

Suddenly, a pronged tail grabbed the Pokeball, snatching it from my hands. I turned to look at Drapion, giving Scizor the oppurtunity it grab her Pokeball. I couldn't even release my Pokemon the right way.

"I know guys, but... we have to do it," I said.

Both of my Pokemon pointed towards the young ranger. He had been berating me the entire time. Surely he would want me to leave my Pokemon here and leave. That's when my motivation kicked in.

"You're challenging me..." I muttered, cracking a grin, "You don't think I can do better do you? I'll show you! I'll go down in the National Park Hall of Fame, you'll see. Screw this guys, give me back your Pokeballs, let's go catch some Pokemon!"

I never understood why I did the things I did. Was I really just wanting to play hero? To have everybody idolize me and go down as a champion. Or was it to simply keep the peace? Have nobody standing against me, because I was too damn nice. I had come to the National Park to take a break, at first I thought it was from the outside world, but thanks to Ranger Hya and my Pokemon, I realized that I had come here to change the way I am. I would go in a reckless bastard, but I would leave this place a changed trainer.

I re-called my Pokemon and turned to the young ranger, "Where's the best place to find some cool Pokemon here?"

Drama ensued. It seemed almost an act, but Hyacinth quickly shook away the thought as Nyurgh first threatened- or offered, the young ranger couldn't say- to free his two Pokemon. Then they knocked some sense back in him, as Drapion tried to edge his trainer on, and it worked.

"You don't think I can do better do you? I'll show you, I'll enter the National Park Hall of Fame, you'll see. Screw this guys, give me back your Pokeball, Let's go catch some Pokemon."

Hyacinth, again, was at a loss as what to do. He didn't receive training for dealing with temper-prone trainers. He tried to recall if he had ever attended to some anger control assemblies back before he turned a ranger, but his memory failed him.

"I... didn't mean to try and part you from your Pokemon. I know better than that. But... but you ought to know better as well. I know you're not mistreating your Pokemon, because they seem very healthy and quite fond of you too. But you don't seem to be an expert when it comes to real battles. I'm not claiming that I'm any better than you, but I was a trainer too in my earlier days, and I know how things go. Promise me you'll be more careful from now on, that's all I ask."

The trainer recalled his two Pokemon, and then asked. "Where's the best place to find some cool Pokemon here?"

"I'm... not too sure," the ranger replied. "I'm rather new here, and I haven't had much time to visit around here. I think that not too far from here there's a tropical area, and I'm sure there're some Tropius there, or other Pokemon as well. Follow me."

***

Encounter #2 (Encounters left 13)

Tropius (unknown gender/ability/nature) 10/10

We're yet to meet it, but we're going there, so you can- you should, if i can say- add a "we walked for a while 'till the tropical area" or something like that. Or, if you're not interested in Tropius, I'm glad to remind you there's always the "flee" option, so we can get to the next encounter.
