"I guess that would be me," Tetsuo said, stepping up. "All right, now I've
only got two Pokemon... But between us, I think we can do it. Right,
Frionel?" He stroked the puppy pokemon's mane as his face was licked, and
smiled. "All right, just remember, you need to move fast against Ghost
pokemon, or they'll confuse you or paralyze you. Can you handle it?"
A gleeful bark signaled Frionel's understanding, and Tetsuo got up and
headed for the trainer's box. "Morty -- I am Tetsuo Yagami, from Kazagu
Town. And I challenge you for a Ghost Badge!" Frionel looked up at his long
time friend and almost seemed to sigh at the theatrics of the performance.
But they had a purpose.
"Well, it's not like I can refuse you," Morty said, smiling wyly. "How about
we make this battle interesting, boy? I'll only use one Pokemon, and you can
use as many as you have, and even switch them whenever you want. I'm willing
to bet that I'll win."
"One on all of mine," Tetsuo said, thinking about it. If Morty was confident
enough to rely on a single pokemon against as many as six from Tetsuo, it
meant that it was a strong one. Probably one that he'd been training for a
long time. Looking down at Frionel, he sighed. Steelng himself, and putting
his performing skills to the test, he smiled and said, "I accept, Morty!
Frionel, I choose you."
"Misdreavus," Morty said, closing his eyes. "Go! After he attacks, Spite
"Frionel, use your Ember!" Frionel nodded, and took a deep breath before
lauching a quick purt of flame directly at Misdreavus. But the ghostly
Pokemon simply warped around the attack and laughed softly as it flew up to
Frionel and blew in his face. "Frionel, try Biting it!"
"Misdreavus, Destiny Bond!"
"What's a Destiny Bond," Mamoru asked, watching as Frionel bit into the
ethereal form of Misdreavus.
"It's a failsafe strategy," Yolei explained, watching Misdreavus circle
around Frionel's head. "It guarantees that if the Pokemon using it gets
knocked out, so will the Pokemon that's been Bonded. I guess Morty is really
confident, to risk using it against the first Tetsuo's first Pokemon
"I guess so," Mamoru said. "I mean, if Tetsuo had six Pokemon, using Destiny
Bond would almost ensure Morty's defeat, wouldn't it?"
"Right, but as long as he can beat Misdreavus with just the one," Yolei
said. "Otherwise he may well end up losing because of a Destiny Bond."
"Frionel, what's going on?" As Tetsuo watched, Frionel barked at the ghost
circling above his head, and took a deep breath, then launched a stream of
fire at it. Not just an Ember, this was a full-fledged Flamethrower. Ad this
time, the attack seemed to connect with Misdreavus.
"All right, Misdreavus, now's the time to show him our power," Morty said.
"Mis drea!" Misdreavus closed its eyes and began emitting psychic waves,
just as Tesuo shouted the next order. Frionel jumped at the glowing
apparitio and sank his teeth into it, disprupting the attack, but not before
it had an effect.
Tetsuo watched his partner, and knew the signs of trouble. He quickly pulled
out the two Pokeballs he'd used, and called Frionel back as he sent his
shiny Unown out. He still didn't know what was so special about it, though
he was going to test his theory out. He'd read about their Hidden Power
attack, but he didn't know if that was a strong one or not. "Unown, Hidden
Morty seemed to laugh at the sight of the Unown. "You think a psychic
Pokemon can defeat my ghosts? Misdreavus, confuse ray!"
As the energy ray was shooting towards the glowing and shining Unown, a bolt
of black energy shot forth rom Unown, who instantly seemed to be away from
the ray, even as it's own attack connected with the Ghost. It didn't seem to
have a major effect, but the ghost seemed to be stunned by the attack
"Unown, use your Hidden Power again!" Tetsuo shouted, hoping that the
stunned look on Misdreavus' face meant it was weak now.
This time the ghost was too slow, as it recovered from the previous attack.
Another dark bolt of energy connected with it, and it fell to the ground,
dazed and unconscious.
"I... I won," Tetsuo said, blinking. "I won!"
"Yes, and you did an excellent job," Morty said, walking across the ring
after he'd recalled his Misdreavus. "You've earned this badge through hard
work, Tetsuo. Come back again someday, and maybe you'll be able to learn
another lesson. Or maybe you'll be teaching me the lessons someday."
"I won," Tetsuo said, taking the Badge from Morty. He turned around smiling,
and headed back to his new friends. "Um, so who's gonna go next guys?"
