Title: Fire Search
Junahia - August 6, 2006 05:45 AM (GMT)
Junahia was already looking around for fire types for Sara, while he threw out his Monsoon. "Here, let your Wooper out, and I'll check its stats." Junahia said, preparing the PokeDEX.
Indigo - August 6, 2006 06:12 AM (GMT)
Sara was delighted to, and soon there were two Woopers staring up at the PokeDEX.
Wooper. This pokemon loves cold water, and leaves only to search for food. It covers its body with a poisonous film, so to touch it bare-hand could cause irritation.
This Wooper is female and level 7.
This Wooper is male and level 7.
"So you can't touch them?" Sara asked, disappointed. "Oh well! At least they still look cute."
The only fire-type pokemon--or any pokemon at all, really--was a single Numel that stared blankly at the sky. There were also several unconscious Spearow, although their origins were a mystery.
Junahia - August 6, 2006 06:21 AM (GMT)
"It looks like you can't," Junahia said, and looked at the Numel, he didn't need it, but Sara did. "There you go, get Wooper to attack that. She should know water gun, which is a pretty good water attack, and it'll hurt the Numel a lot. Go on, babe." Jun then let Tsunami out, he hadn't seen her in a while, and released the Domono. "Tsunami, can you look after Domono? Don't let her stray too far."
Indigo - August 6, 2006 06:38 AM (GMT)
"Okay, Wooper!" Sara said to Monsoon. When he didn't respond to her orders, she turned to the other one. "Wooper?"
That one nodded.
"Okay! Water Gun that..." She waved her hand at the Numel as she tried to think of the name. "Whatever it is, I want you to hit it with water, okay?"
Tsunami may have been more willing to look after Domono than Hurricane was, but it was clear that she was more used to fighting than babysitting. Domono came out of her own pokeball and glanced around, as if looking for something. When she saw Corphish, she was actually civil for once and gave a chirp at the Corphish before looking around again.
Corphish paused at the noise and pointed to Jun's pokeball. Then she pointed at her waist (or midsection, or however one describes that on a Corphish) and glanced back up Domono.
Domono wasn't pleased. She started to wail loudly again.
At the noise, the Numel actually glanced up and Wooper's Water Gun was thrown wildly off its mark. The stream of water splattered in front of the Numel, who turned to glare at her and stepped forward threateningly.
((To be fair, I'll give you a hint about Domono: she likes one of your pokemon more than the others.))
Junahia - August 6, 2006 06:41 AM (GMT)
Hmph. This didn't really seem to happen as much with Hurricane or Blaze, I guess Tsunami scared the little Domono. Junahia said, returning Tsunami and letting Blaze out. "Blaze, can you look after Domono again, please?" He then changed his attention to Sara, while returning Monsoon after her mix up. "Don't worry about that, Sara. Repeat the order."
Indigo - August 6, 2006 07:00 AM (GMT)
Domono went on crying for a little bit, but at the sight of Blaze she stopped abruptly and set about running around in circles. Blaze merely sat down, yawned a little, and watched her race.
Watching after Domono wasn't much of a scratch behind the ears, but it was nice being outside.
"Water Gun!" Sara ordered again. This time, Wooper hit her mark and Numel was hit full in the face with the attack.
There was a pause.
Then Numel realized it was getting hit with something that was painful.
Finally getting really riled up about it, Numel grunted and charged the Wooper head on. Eyes wide, Wooper actually backed up a step before getting hit full on with Numel's Tackle. Still, even though the blow was enough to knock the wind out of Wooper, the Water Gun obviously hurt a lot more.
"Just keep that up, right?" Sara asked Junahia.
Junahia - August 6, 2006 07:04 AM (GMT)
Junahia smiled at Blaze and Domono, it was a funny contrast between the baby's antics and Blaze's indifference. He turned to answer Sara's question. "That would be helpful, yes."
Indigo - August 6, 2006 07:35 AM (GMT)
"Um, Water Gun! Again!"
Wooper managed to get in her hit before Numel attacked again, and the camel snorted painfully as the water really began to affect it. It tried a half-hearted charged, tripped, and sluggishly got to its feet again.
"Okay, now I know I got this part!" Sara shouted, and she threw her pokeball at Numel. Once again, it was wildly off its mark, and Rose shouted something at Wooper.
The water pokemon glanced back at Rose before nodding and going after the pokeball. Then she kicked it all the way back to the Numel, who was trying to Tackle her again, and punted the ball directly into Numel's face.
The wild pokemon only registered surprise after it had been drawn into the pokeball and caught.
"All right! I'm getting good at this!" Her celebrations were put on hold when Junahia's PokeNAV began to ring, and she paused to locate whatever was ringing.
Junahia - August 6, 2006 06:10 PM (GMT)
"Way to go, Sara!" Junahia congratulated while pulling his PokeNAV open and putting it up to his ear and mouth. "Talk to me," he said quickly, not knowing who it was.
Indigo - August 6, 2006 08:04 PM (GMT)
It was Nora, and although she sounded as if she were in a great deal of pain, she was very much alive and ready to ask questions in her normal harsh tone.
Junahia - August 6, 2006 08:44 PM (GMT)
"Ah crap...' Jun thought to himself, and his face dropped. Not only was he in a mess for killing the guy, but now he remembered it. The only way out was, well, to lie like hell. "I can't talk about it right now, please, trust me. I can not talk about it."
Indigo - August 6, 2006 08:52 PM (GMT)
Nora wasn't all that happy with the response. "So you know something. Where is my son?!" she hissed.
Junahia - August 7, 2006 02:27 AM (GMT)
Junahia really wanted to yell at her and get her off of his case, but that wasn't really possible. "Miss Masters, please believe me on this, I'm not in a situation where speaking about it would be a very good idea, I stress this to you, but I will call you back."
Indigo - August 7, 2006 11:42 PM (GMT)
Another man could be heard on the PokeNAV at this point, and whoever it was only served to make Nora more angry. Her voice grew slightly fainter as she turned her head away from the phone.
"Get away from-!"
"Ma'am, you need medical attention!"
On the other end, a loud clattering noise could be heard before the call disconnected.
Junahia - August 8, 2006 01:18 AM (GMT)
Junahia closed up his PokeNAV and released a sigh of relief, and spoke to Sara. "Sorry about that, Police business, don't ya know."
Indigo - August 8, 2006 05:05 PM (GMT)
((From now on, "Sarah" gets a color and a slight name change to "Sara." I completely forgot about Silawen's Sarah for a second... ^^))
Sara had knelt to congratulate her Wooper as much as possible (without physically coming in contact with it). She looked up at Junahia after learning his phone call was over. "Oh, you never told me you were part of the police," she said, awed at this revelation. "You looked pretty serious. Is there a problem?"
Junahia - August 8, 2006 06:00 PM (GMT)
Junahia nodded modestly, "Yeah, well I'm not that active of a cop, but yeah I am one." He said, and returning to her question. "Well, it was quite important, but now's not the time to discuss it," he stated, as if to make it look confidential and he was unwilling to discuss it in public.
Indigo - August 8, 2006 06:28 PM (GMT)
((I'm just trying to seperate the two of them or otherwise I'll keep thinking that Silawen's character randomly forgot everything she knew about pokemon, got her IQ knocked down a few pegs, and ended up in Mura City with the dream of becoming an interpretive dancer. *goes back and edits accordingly*))
When Junahia revealed that he was indeed a cop, Sara immediately straightened and saluted. "I can go get my pokemon healed and do some dance practice while you deal with it..."
Junahia - August 8, 2006 06:39 PM (GMT)
Junahia chuckled at the sight of Sara. "No, no, don't worry. I don't have to be anywhere, I'll just be calling them back later on."
Indigo - August 8, 2006 06:52 PM (GMT)
"That's good too, 'cause I get to spend more time with you!" Sara said to Junahia before looking at her Wooper with equal joy. "Okay... I'm going to call you Sapphire! That's a beautiful name for a beautiful Woopy. Er, Wooper."
"Woop-woop," Sapphire drawled and grinned up at Sara. The pokemon must have liked the name herself.
Domono and Blaze had been watching the battle take place quietly. After the end of the fight, Domono, clearly impressed with what she had just seen, chirped excitedly at Blaze and jumped around. The Growlithe just wagged his tail a little and heard Domono out.
((Oh, and Sapphire's at 85% health.))
Junahia - August 8, 2006 08:57 PM (GMT)
Junahia smiled and looked around at the route, still quite down about killing Ben. He checked if there were any new pokemon around.
Indigo - August 9, 2006 03:43 AM (GMT)
A few more pokemon had appeared on the route after Sara's battle.
- A Machop was busily hefting a large rock and using it as a weight to lift.
- Two Geodudes were in the middle of a fistfight.
- A Gulpin slithered down the path and looked around for something.
- Two Spindas were keeping their distance behind the Gulpin, but it was clear they were following after it.
Junahia - August 9, 2006 04:50 AM (GMT)
'That Machop looks very appealing to me, a fighting type would be very useful.' Junahia thought, and began to walk towards it, speaking to Sara. "Babe, you don't mind if I go for that Machop, do you?"
Indigo - August 9, 2006 05:14 AM (GMT)
Sara tried to locate what pokemon Junahia was talking about. After failing to do so, she simply turned back to Junahia and shook her head. "Mind? Not at all. Go for it!" she cheered. Sapphire and Rose, who were talking amongst themselves about something, paused to add their own supporting cries.
Junahia - August 9, 2006 06:10 PM (GMT)
"Good," Jun said, more to no one than actuallly to Sara. He thought and remembered that Machop's weakness would be flying. That was Hurricane. Junahia let out the Spearow and called it to arms. "Hurricane, fast and low, peck on that Machop!" He said, also aiming the PokeDEX at it.
Indigo - August 10, 2006 07:46 AM (GMT)
This Machop is female and level 8.
Hurricane quickly flew towards the Machop and adjusted his altitude accordingly. With the Machop busily lifting her weight, she was complely unprepared for a Spearow swooping in, attacking her torso, and then flying away.
Machop screamed and dropped her rock before quickly locating the pokemon that had done that to her. She clenched her fists at the sight of Hurricane.
Junahia - August 14, 2006 12:13 PM (GMT)
Junahia smiled, and was prepared to take on this Pokemon. "Okay, Hurricane, fly close, but pull away at the last second to fake it, then circle around behind the Machop and use peck from behind." He called, hopeful it would work.
Indigo - August 15, 2006 12:09 AM (GMT)
The Machop glared warily at Hurricane as he positioned himself for another Peck. Then, without warning, he flew in for a another charge directly at Machop's face. Just when it seemed that Hurricane was past the point of return, he suddenly pulled up (with thanks to the wind, which increased his speed and manuverability). The Machop had chosen that moment to swing a punch at Hurricane, but she was stunned when her fist met nothing but air and a stray feather that had freed itself during the Spearow's abrupt escape upwards.
As Machop spent precious seconds wondering what her opponent had just done, Hurricane circled around and dove at her back. Machop was pitched forward from the force of Hurricane's beak striking flesh and she instinctively threw out her arms to stop her body from crashing into the earth. Remaining where she crouched so she could clear her mind, Machop looked to the rock she had used for weight training. She rose, pain clearly evident in her face, grabbed the rock she was focusing on, and flung it at the retreating Spearow as hard as she possibly could.
It didn't crush the Spearow to the ground like she'd wanted, but the rock did sucessfully hit Hurricane from behind, propelled him forward, and sent him falling to the ground. The rock landed in between the fallen Hurricane and the suddenly smug (although exhausted) Machop.
Hurricane slowly got to his feet. He was okay for now, but the improvised Rock Throw had hurt.
Junahia - August 18, 2006 11:01 PM (GMT)
Hurricane was doing well enough, it seemed, but needed more guidence. "Fake it out again, Hurricane, but twice this time." He demanded. Then, Junahia thought silently to himself, then looked at Domono. "Do you want a go?" He asked her.
Indigo - August 19, 2006 09:58 PM (GMT)
The Domono shrieked at Junachia and then the Machop.
Hurricane swooped towards Machop to do the exact same thing that he had done the last time. Machop warily watched him come in; was the Spearow really going to try and fake her out again?
Figuring Hurricane might mix up her strategy, Machop decided to try and punch him again as he came in for the Peck. But, just as before, the Spearow pulled back before he could be hit, flew around, and gave the Machop a firm Peck to her back.
The Machop fell to the ground again and was very slow in getting up. Before she could completely get to her feet, Spearow swooped in and gave her yet another Peck to make sure she'd stay down.
That had about done it. The Machop looked about ready to faint. She had no fight left in her to defend herself against Hurricane's constant Pecking, and simply groaned as she awaited the end.
Junahia - August 19, 2006 10:03 PM (GMT)
"Well done, Hurricane! Now fall back," He called, and threw a pokeball at the Machop in hopes of capture.
Indigo - August 19, 2006 10:33 PM (GMT)
Hurricane effortlessly flew out of the way of the pokeball. The device hit Machop, who was sucked into it and only gave a small struggle before the pokeball stabilized.
You have caught a female Machop, level 8 and at 20% health.
Battle Rewards: Hurricane has gained +4 EXP (level up, 0/10) with 85% health. Hurricane is now level 10.
Junahia - August 30, 2006 10:35 PM (GMT)
Junahia collected the pokeball and nodded to Sara, "Shall we go?"
Indigo - August 30, 2006 10:59 PM (GMT)
"Wooo," Sapphire laughed before she was recalled. This left Sara's Roselia out, and both pokemon and trainer nodded to Junahia when he was through fighting.
"Yeah, where to now?" Sara asked, curious. "This is so exciting! I haven't even been a trainer for a full day and I already have three beautiful pokemon!"
You may now post in Fleet Town, Route 5, Mura City, or Mossy Forest.
