"So..." Jason rubbed the back of his head and knit his brows together.
"I guess I challenge you to a pokémon battle."
Bob looked up from his book. His eyes took on the same look as Jason's.
"What? Uh, yeah, I guess so. Alright." He put the book away and stood up.
Jason pulled a pokéball off of his belt.
"I've got more than one pokémon with me now, and I don't intend to make
the same mistakes I did before." Bob nodded.
"Two on two?" he asked.
"Fair enough. You send out first, since you can see which 'ball I've
selected." Bob pointed to the field.
"Go Raffy!" The Girafarig gave him a look.
<> Bob returned the look. Raffy sighed and
entered the field, but immediately took a battle stance. Jason half-smiled.
"Girafarig, just as I thought. And no doubt he has some Psychic
"Duh," Amber said, from off on the sidelines, "We saw him use them
"Quiet, you're breaking the moment." He threw his ball onto the field.
"I choose you, Ella!" The Jynx materialized and began adjusting her
fell to the side.
"Now's not the time to be worrying about your hair. We need to fight."
Ella looked at Bob and Raffy. Bob waved to her, and she returned it.
Jason rubbed his
"Long story, we need to fight him for a badge."
she said, as if that made all the sense in the world. She
winked at Raffy.
"Double Team, then Doubleslap!" Jason ordered. A copy of Ella stepped
out of herself, then another stepped out, then another...until a total of 10
Ellas were in the stadium. They immediately spread out around Raffy, and
began closing in.
"Crap! Agility!" Raffy immediately shot off through a gap between two of
the Ellas and turned back. He adjusted himself to try and take out many with
one Take Down. But the Jynx copies had spread out, making it impossible to
hit more than one at a time.
Raffy yelped as a Doubleslap clipped his ear. He shot forward to avoid
another hit from the Ella that had snuck up behind him. He lept to one side
in mid-run to avoid another Doubleslap from a second Ella. Raffy shot around
the room at top speed, still moving fast from his Agility. He weaved around
all the Ellas, avoiding hits left and right, looking like a driver on an
obstacle course. After going like this for a few seconds, Raffy decided to
end it. He looked around, and set his sights on a two Ellas standing right
next to each other. He motored towards them, putting as much energy as he
could into his Take Down attack. But, as he neared them, they seperated to
reveal the real Ella with her hands out in front of her. Raffy stuck his
hooves out in front of him, trying to stop or change direction, but even
with the Agility he was too slow. The poor Girafarig took the Ice Beam
directly in the face. He flew back from the force, which knocked him almost
out of the battle area.
"Oh no! Are you okay, Raffy?" The Girafarig stook up and shook the ice
crystals out of his furs.
<> He eyed the Jynx across the
field. The Ellas laughed and stalked toward him.
Raffy stood his ground as the Ellas circled him again. They
revolved around him, and he watched them, scrutinizing. He closed his eyes
and concentrated. Unsure of what to do, the Ella's turned to look at Jason.
He spluttered at their bewilderment.
"What? Attack him, quick!" The Ella's all turned around, and each
focused an Ice Beam on the pokémon in the middle. Suddenly, Raffy's eyes
snapped open, and rainbow colored light shot out of them, connecting with
the eyes of the real Ella. She staggered backwards, pupils shrunk down to
almost nothing. Her clones disappeared, her unable to keep up the tremendous
mental strain of maintaining the illusion.
Everyone fell down,
hard. Jason yelled at her.
"It's not a date rape...never mind." Ella slapped herself in the face to
get rid of the confusion. Then she slapped herself again, and again. Unable
to get rid of the odd colors, she gave herself one final blow. The last hit
was a bit too hard though, and she collapsed on the gym floor.
"Yyyes!" Bob yelled. "My first victory as a Gym Leader!" Jason recalled
the fainted Ella.
"Don't get cocky, I still have one pokémon. And that pokémon is..." He
threw the ball onto the field and out of the light appeared...
Which pokémon will Jason use? Who will win this amazing battle? Why am I
stopping in the middle of a gym battle? I can't tell you the answers to the
first two, but I'm stopping cause it's way too late to write anymore. Expect
the rest tomorrow. Sorry to put all you guys on hold for this. You can write
a back story, or just what's going on on the sidelines as this is happening.
