The Beedrill hadn’t fared very well right from the start. They had killed several citizens, sure, but at a great cost.
One of them had been suddenly torched by a Hydreigon that hadn’t revealed itself until now. The Beedrill (2) dropped instantly, on fire and burning. His body began twitching as the flames consumed him.
The other, before she could go to its comrade’s help, had been attacked by the Scizor. She brought her arms up to block some of the damage, however they had been greatly injured by the attack. She let out an angry buzz and struck back. The needle-like formation that she had used to attack earlier reappeared, but this time it began spinning. She thrust it at the Scizor, catching her in the chest, hoping for this Drill to Run through it.
The Sandslash were doing much better at their intended job, keeping Electric attacks away from their leader and drawing a Dragon towards them. Though 1 of them had taken quite the beating before the others rushed to their assistance.
They Dug through the sand, which allowed them to move faster towards the Dragon, before popping up behind him and attacked while he focused on the other. They attacked each with a Crushing Claw, tearing into the Dragon’s back. They managed to inflict damage upon the Dragon while also ripping into his defenses, opening him up to take more damage later.
"I LOVE PLAYING FOUL!"
The Murkrow cocked its head to the side as the Sharpedo launched its attack. “Fufufufufu.” The Gijinka didn’t move an inch as the Ice Fang came towards it, but a moment later the Sharpedo was biting down onto a strange looking doll, while the Murkrow itself was several feet back, cackling, though seeming to have become a bit weakened nonetheless. Then it unleashed a Power that had been Hidden. A projectile, in the shape of a spectral fist, shot out at the opposing Dark type.
"This is a fight for...I guess calling them 'warriors' is a bit too generous. Get out of here,"
“You don’t know what you’re talking about! I can fight too just you watch!” Mac was annoyed that this stupid Dragon was underestimating her and was determined to prove her wrong. The Litleo from before was doing the same, going towards the Scy...no, he totally ignored the Scyther, the enemy was right there what..ooooh! Mac realized a moment later that the Mr Mime was still breathing, if barely.
Though it looked like the Scyther had taken notice of the Litleo trying to sneak past him and was going to try and stop it. Mac was having none of that! “Don’t underestimate me!” She shouted before charging at the Bug, and trying to Pound him with her fist. The Scyther side-stepped her attack and backhanded the girl. She was sent flying to the ground with surprising force. The soft landing made it possible for her to roll back to her feet. She needed to keep the Scyther from attacking the Litleo...though it seemed another was doing a good job at that. As soon as she was attacked the Scyther’s attention was drawn instead to a Chandelure. Mac began to Charge for her next attack, she wouldn’t let this bastard win...
"I should warn you right now; I had to defend myself from more competent thugs than you once upon a time, and to say it didn't go well for them would be a severe understatement! I'm giving you one chance only. If you value your life, I suggest you wise up and call this paltry assault off!"
“You giving me a warning?! You know, with how old you are I’d think you’d know not to underestimate. That’s right your face doesn’t fool me, I can see the age in your eyes....tell me, what do you see in my eyes?” The Scyther grinned wider and adjusted his stance, his Aura suddenly flaring up as he Focused his Energy. Then the wings on his back fully extended and he rushed the Chandelure, striking the Ghost with a powerful blow, a critical hit.
"What can I do to help?"
At first the Mr Mime had been only able to focus on the pain but, strangely, that seemed to be fading away. Though he knew this wasn’t a good sign. He looked up at the young Litleo. This one had defended him. “T-there’s nothing, I’m not...much longer for this world...I-I must confess, before I...” He stuttered to a halt, then licked his lips, trying to croak out his words. “I lied, I never beat a Legend, I just...I just didn’t want to be seen as a...f-failure anymore. I became a Chaser t-to give my k-kids someone to look up to but I-I’ve been so useless...Ah b-but, I...I did see one. Someone needs to know, a-at least I would’ve done something...with my life. I saw it, inside a cave to the east, behind a hidden door, guarded by a puzzle...B-but know this, there’s Snorlax guarding the entrance...I T-Tricked him to get past but h-he’s a sharp one...Heh...if only I could’ve been someone...like that....instead...” With one last sigh, the Mr Mime perished right there in the sand.Juyu
Sada turned to the Weavile who had suddenly dropped in. She was offering to help for some money? “Look we don’t...what the s***?” This exclamation came from the Zangoose leader as she watched the Altaria suddenly go into a frenzy, crushing two of her members, possible killing them, while injuring several others.
The Zangoose gang were put on the defensive, trying to avoid the crazed Dragon with their Detect. Though one brave soul who had taken a hit without going down retaliated, they used their pain to their advantage and swung at the Altaria, intent on Revenge.
“Fine, how about this? 200 Poke if you bring down that Altaria there, deal?”
Sada ignored the Slyveon who had come up, focusing on the Weavile and waiting for his answer. However what she couldn’t ignore was the Charizard who was asking a question. “Don’t you f***in’ tell me where to fight, these bastards decided to get in the way of...important business, stay outta it ya hear?”
Phineas, however, was having very different reactions. He hadn’t noticed the Confuse Ray and was now in a state of total confusion. He looked around wildly, eyes settling on the Weavile. It was saying something, what? Something about fighting? Well fine, bring it! He lunged forward, his tail dropping from where it had been hiding under his jacket, and he swung it at the Weavile, the tip glowing purple and dripping with poison. Once it connected with the Weavile the thing...vanished. Which only added to his confusion.
“Phineas you idiot!” Sada roared, then thought a moment. “A Double Team, eh? Hey Weavile the deal is still on! Bring the Dragon down and you’ll not regret it!” She shouted out, over the din of the fight.
Meanwhile Phineas was staring at the Slyveon with interest. “Hello pretty lady, what’ssss a girl like you doing in a placcce like thisss?”
The rest of his gang, meanwhile, had decided to strike. The Empoleon took cover with the Mismagius but that didn’t stop them. Five of them lunged, their mouths open wide and their fangs extending, intending to Bite down on the pair. Two of them crushed the table while the rest went after the Gijinka, trying to strike despite the covering Mist and the Rain that was making it hard to keep good footing.
The other two, Seviper 6 and 7 went after the Rotom that had attacked their leader, 7 soared right on through a Double Team copy and slammed into the ground. Though 6 was a lot luckier, managing to Bite down on the Rotom’s arm.
"I know I'm meddling and I probably should've left you alone but if you could fight I could really use the help!"
“Ah wha?” Gwen shook her head, having been suddenly dragged away, and regained her composure. She wasn‘t quite crouched down fully, as she still floated above the ground, but her head was ducked to take cover. Realizing she was being spoken to, Gwen responded. “That is fine, but I really would rather you have stayed out of this. It was my own mistake and...oh goodness!” There was no time to talk, the Seviper were attacking.
There was a Seviper(3) heading right for her. It chomped down on her shoulder, causing her to cry out at the large amount of damage taken. But she wasn’t about to let this stop her. She glared at the Seviper, and smiled. “You poor thing you really don’t stand a Ghost of a chance.” She was excited to have gotten to use her favorite saying and she wouldn’t let it go to waste. She pressed her hand on the Seviper and cursed it. As she did minor burns appeared over his body. She wasn’t through yet, though.
Locking eyes with the Seviper she activated one of her most useful abilities. The Gijinka fell away as it suddenly felt the pain that Gwen had experienced, meanwhile Gwen regained a bit of her own health.
Gwen stood to her full, impressive, height and then gestured towards the Seviper. An eye-shaped cloud formed above her and latched onto him, sending a powerful blast of Aura damage to them. Strengthened by the burn this was enough to knock him out in that instant. Gwen turned to the Empoleon. “How’re you faring?” She said with a slightly cheeky grin, as she teased the Empoleon for worrying about her.
