- My...PRECIOUS. Hissss. Protective towards everything his, be it living or nonliving, this Larvitar will easily bite first before looking at a situation should anything of his be threatened. Shiny things are what best catches his eyes. From someone's personality or a lowly object, if it glitters beautifully or is a diamond in the rough, this guy has to have it. All that's pretty needs to be his, and it doesn't matter if he has to be selfish to obtain it. He'll try not to though! Without a doubt, the dual type will go to the ends of Godai to obtain what should be his!

- One to be apathetic about a lot of things, this Cubone has been fighting off that feeling for ages. She's trying to feel that excitement, anger, sadness that was once hers. She's trying to feel something - anything at all! - but alas her attempts have been for naught. Perhaps it's due to the fact that whenever the Cubone wants or doesn't want something, bad things constantly happen. After so many years, she's come to expect nothing, because after all, having a desire or emotion of any kind will only lead to bad things. So why try anymore?

A vicious Sanstorm had whipped up in the cave, circulating around the walls, bouncing off them causing it to become faster and faster. The source of this came from a tiny Larvitar Pokemon that had entered the area along with a Cubone, both of whom had surrounded Gligar on the far side of the cave room. Vincent was also affected, the sand whipping around his face, obstructing his view. He looked to his right and, thankfully, he could still see the other guy. “You ok there mate?”
Vincent asked, a little louder than normal to make sure he could still hear him. “Do you have any Ground, Rock or Steel type Pokemon? This Sandstorm will hurt your Nuzleaf!”
This was all Vincent could do without ignoring his own Gligar, who was unaffected by the weather change. “Gligar, use Poison Sting on both the Larvitar and the Cubone!”
Gligar, even through the sand, managed to hear her trainer through the sand and jumped backwards into the sand and threw down a flurry of poison needles at Larvitar. It held up it’s arm to protect its face, although most of the needles hit it. It wasn’t very effective and it didn’t seem to become poisoned. The Cubone however, seeing this, ran forwards and leaped up at the Gligar. Gligar hit it too with poison needles before being kicked once, twice in midair. Gligar was knocked down into the ground, near the Nuzleaf, while the Cubone, which was now in the middle of the room, lay on it’s back, it’s face purple from being poisoned.
Leonard shifted his gaze from his battling friend towards the lad with a grateful smile on his face. “Thanks for the warning buddy, however I’m sure Fern’ll be fine. Besides, he’s the best shot at battling whatever picked up this storm.”
The man then turned back to the front and roared his orders for the Grass type. He just hoped he didn’t cause any hearing damage to his fellow human. His family and co-workers had told him multiple times that he possessed an impressive pair of lungs. “Fern! If you find a strange Pokémon then kick its ass! It’d be the most likely one to have kicked up this mess!”
Hearing its trainer yell, the Nuzleaf grit his teeth at annoyance. Of course there had to be another threat to his human. As if the other fleshbag and his entourage, together with the giant rock and floating mirror weren’t enough. The less said about the irritating sand lowering his line of sight the better. A sound to its left led the Dark type attracted his attention, and he immediately went investigating. To his joy, the Pokémon found all the battlers gathered together nicely. Grinning to himself, the Wily Pokémon took advantage of the flyer grabbing the newcomers their attention and went about boosting himself up once more. The less time he had to spend in this storm, the better.
His boost had just settled when the flyer was kicked out of the air and towards him. Not feeling any need to catch the creature in mid flight, the Dark type ducked under its trajectory and focused on the two bipedal Pokémon. Glaring at the two threats to his human, the Nuzleaf focused most of his newfound energy to the leaf on top of his head. Repeating his previous actions with the giant rock, the Grass type flung his head thrice and send three batches of razor sharp leafs towards his adversaries. The green skinned one was able to dodge the first batch, but the other two came a bit too close after one another. At least Fern was able to hit the skull kid thrice.
“Gligar, get up and use Knock off on the Larvitar,”
Vincent called to his friend. With a snarl, Gligar rolled backwards onto her feet and launched herself across the ground, swooping past the Cubone that was then Razor Leafed and landed a dark punch on the green skinned reptile sending it backwards. It didn’t hurt it much but a little golden ball flew into the air, bounced off the ceiling and landed behind the Gligar between her and the Nuzleaf.
Vincent turned towards the other guy and reached into his bag, pulling out his last Great Ball. “I’m going for the Cubone if you don’t mind.”
Gligar on the other hand, saw the golden ball and picked it up slyly, hoping no one would see. However the Larvitar definitely noticed something odd.
Vincent threw the Great Ball before the guy had a chance to counter. The ball flew through air at the Cubone and bounced off it’s skull helmet. A bright red light absorbed the Cubone and what replaced it was a bright blue ball and Gligar flying into its space, knocked out cold. Vincent, seeing this, ran over to his Pokemon through the sandstorm and picked her up. “Gligar! Are you ok?”
Gligar’s eyes were closed, but thankfully she was still breathing. Vincent sighed as the Great Ball clicked shut next to him. Vincent picked up the Great Ball and smiled. It was bitter sweet, but at least Gligar was ok.
Vincent grabbed Gligars Pokeball from his bag and returned the fainted Pokemon so she could rest. Vincent stood back up and walked over to the other guy, protecting his eyes, both Pokeball and Great Ball in hands. “That Larvitar is much stronger than any of my Pokemon. I can send out my Aron for support but your Nuzleaf will fair a better chance…”
Leonard waved his fellow battler’s concerns off and simply smiled at him. “Sure, you go right ahead.”
Unlike Roggenrola and Clefairy, Leonard had absolutely no reason to actually catch the Ground type Pokémon and as such there was no need to argue with the other man. Especially not when they had bigger concerns, like the sand that stormed around and got in his eyes. Arceus was that annoying. While he was never all that invested in Pokémon battles, nor did he aim to achieve anything in the sport unlike his brother, Leonard was aware that Pokémon were capable of changing the weather with nary but a thought. Normally, just taking out the one who creates the new weather condition is enough to make it settle down. With the Cubone down yet the storm still raging, his next plan of action should surprise no one.
“Don’t worry about it, buddy, Fern’s got this.”
He chuckled slightly, not mentioning that he had no other Pokémon to battle with. While that wasn’t entirely true, the man wasn’t about to put Roggenrola or Clefairy through any fights. They were simply temporary tag alongs and he’d be damned if he make them clean up after him.
“All right, Fern! Let’s wrap things up here! I’m sure I got sand in places I didn’t even know I had!”
Hearing the loud bellow of his trainer, the Grass type yelled loudly. The Pokémon just about had it with all the coarse sand running over his skin. With a glare and a scowl on his face, the Nuzleaf dashed straight ahead towards the last wild threat to his trainer. The Wily Pokémon took note that the creature’s face shifted from shock, to bewilderment before it settled for fury. With a deep growl that sounded akin to two rocks grinding against one another, the Pokémon ran straight at him with a snarl and a dark, smokey aura to surround its teeth.
Just before the two would make contact Fern had planned to jump straight over the green creature and pepper it with his leaves from above, however a sudden increase in speed of his opponent caught him off guard. Because of his carelessness it allowed the other creature to sink its teeth straight in his shoulder. Biting back a scream of pain, Fern’s eyes flashed in anger at his foolishness and at underestimating his opponent. Noticing that the creature did not plan on losing its hold anytime soon, Fern decided that two could play that game simply allowed the creature to hurt him. As a matter of fact, Fern’s arms encircled the creature and took a solid grasp of it. In shock, the Pokémon’s biting stopped after a while one it realized its prey did not make any effort to get away from it. Looking in it’s eyes, Fern couldn’t help a grin form on his face before he released all of the pent up energy he build up from converting it from its damage.
All that Leonard could see was a blinding light - as if the sand wasn’t taking enough care of that - just before the sandstorm slowly petered out and finally settled down. With a grin on his face at being able to see once more, the bear of a man checked up on how his starter was doing. The grin quickly fell from his face once he noticed the state his Pokémon was in.
That scream was all the warning anyone got until the man ran towards his Pokémon. The closer the got the more disheveled his friend looked. Dust, sand and cuts covered his body and a hand lay on one of his shoulders which did little to ease his racing mind. The creature turned its head his way and sent him a weak, but confident smile as it slowly limped his way.
The moment they reached one another, Leonard immediately bent on one knee and took the Dark type in his hands. He gave the creature a quick body check, and apart from the puncture wounds on his shoulder there did not seem to be anything too life threatening to him. With a sigh of relief, Leonard smiled broadly at his starter before he hoisted it up and planted the Pokémon on top of his shoulder. He gave the green skinned Pokémon they’d been battling a quick glance to make sure it was out. Not that he had to doubt Fern’s ability - or maybe he should call it an obsession? - to take care of something that might pose a threat to him while the Pokémon was awake. Satisfied that it didn’t seem to wake up, Leonard patted his starter on the thigh before he walked back to his blonde haired acquaintance.
“Ya did a great job out there, Fern. I’ll give ya proper care once we’re out of here. I don’t want any more Pokémon popping up out of nowhere.”
The creature simply grunted and allowed its eyes to roam around their surroundings now his sight wasn’t impaired. Something blinking on the ground grabbed his attention and he pulled at his trainer’s cheek, who turned his head towards Fern.
His eyes followed Fern’s pointing finger and landed on a small, golden ball. They then widened in recognition at what he saw and quickly bent down to grab it from the ground. Giving it a second close look, Leonard was almost giddy at what he found before he pocketed it away.
He gave one more pat on his starter’s thigh as he released a bark of laughter. “Oh boy, ya did real good Fern. Hahaha!”
