"O.K. Training opportunity." Travis says pulling out a pokeball as the others
load the kiln. "Hoofer go!" He cried letting out his Rapidash. Hoofer came out
with a cry, fiery tail and mane flying. "Alight, Hoofer, we need to burn this
wood in a hurry, so i want you to aim your best Fire Blast right into the
in a neigh.
"No, i had you power down Fire Blast." Travis replied reasonably. "you still
know the move, just use your Flamethower at full power."
Hoofer replied, turning towards the kiln. His proud head
pointed up in the air as he drew in breath. His chest expanded like a bellows
as his lungs filled. Everyone stepped back, even the other fire pokemon, as
they anticipated a truly impressive fire display. And they weren't
disappointed. Hoofer lowered his head and let the Fire Blast attack go. The
flames lit the night, making it even brighter than day, as Hoofer directed the
precisely formed fire symbol to its target. Collectively they gasped and
stepped even further back as the heat from the flame effected them all.
Then they all sighed in disappointment as the Fire Blast completely missed the
kiln. Hoofer hadn't lowered his head nearly enough to allow the Fire Blast to
enter the mouth of the kiln. Hoofer sweatdropped in embarrassment as the flame
sped above the kiln out into the night sky, lighting up the entire area as it
went harmless on, until burning itself out.
"Oh well. Nice try." Travis said sounding resigned even as he patted the large
fire horse on the shoulder. "Amp it back down to Flamethower and help the
others burn the wood, please."
"Man, this is going to take forever!" Becky cried eyeing the large pile of
wood as the other fire types joined Hoofer and added their ember attacks and
Flamethower to his.
"Well, it is probably better to take the time to do it right." Travis replied.
"Fire Blast would have probably burned the wood to quick anyway. best we can
do is help to load and unload the kiln." He added releasing Stone once more.
Instructing the Golem to help out loading and unloading the kiln since he was
four times resistant to fire as a rock/ground type.
"W-we might as well go see what Jason and Amber have left us to eat." Sarah
'I'll stay here and supervise the charcoal making." Sylvester stated. "Just
leave me some desert, please!" The others nodded and headed back towards the
On the way, they encountered something really strange. From out of the bushes,
a large Persian leapt. It appeared to be wild, but it also sounded like it was
speaking! It's voice was to muffled to make out the words, and Sarah said.
"Look, it has someone's pokeball!" Travis looked closely and could barely make
out in the darkness a red a white ball held firmly in the cat pokemon's mouth.
Everyone checked their belts quickly to make sure they each had their
pokeballs. "Maybe it's either Amber's or Jason's." Becky said once everyone
had confirmed none missing. "We better catch that thing and get the ball
But before anyone could make a move, the Persian leapt to the side and took
off running! "Go check with Amber and Jason." Travis said. "I'll try and catch
the beastie and get the ball back" And with that, Travis took off running
after the Persian.
The others entered the cabin quickly and found Amber and Jason sitting
together. Amber was smiling, but she appeared to have been crying. Jason wore
a look of concern, though he was smiling as well. Rivet sat off to the side,
and he just looked smug.
"hey! Either of you two missing a pokeball?" Becky asked. Jason and Amber
quickly checked their belts and reported that they weren't. "We just ran into
a talking Persian who had a pokeball. None of us are missing any, and if you
two aren't either, then i wonder whose it was." Becky mussed
"Mimic wonder..." Said Mimic, who had morphed back into a duplicate of the shy
pokemon trainer Sarah.
"Wonder what?" The real Sarah asked not stammering when talking to a friend.
"Could it be that strange talking ball Sarah told Mimic about?" Mimic asked.
"Surely not!' Sarah exclaimed. "That would mean that it's been following us!"
Pop Up stated.
Amber translated what the Abra had said, then replied to it, "I thought maybe
you saw the guy I ran into. He has declared himself to be my rival. he is the
one responsible for merging me with Nyru. He gave me my Natu back after you
Pop Up disagreed and Amber translated.
"Why would that stupid PK Ball be following us?" Sarah asked irritated.
"Maybe if Travis catch, we can ask." Mimic stated
