Damn, another Legendary Bird, Zapdos. An Aerodactyl can't take that punishment. He tugged on Scyther's legs, and she pumped into overdrive, trying to close the gap. After a short midair struggle, he saw all the riders fall off. Good thing he was close. He had only one option left. He directed Scyther to drop. He hurled Gyarados down as fast as he could. Gyarados could fly only for a short while, though. Dernam reached out with one hand, and caught someone as they fell. Neo. He looked down at Gyarados. She weaved about in midair,catching as many people as she could. She somehow got them all. But she couldn't hold all the wait. Gyarados initially dropped like a rock, with people(plus a clefairy) hold ing on. At the last second she leveled out, using the speed she had built up to glide. She came to a halt on the ground. Dernam ordered Scyther to land, and she obeyed gratefully. He guessed that all the weight must hurt some. They landed next to Gyarados, who was watching over the others as they brushed themselves off. "Everyone OK?" He inquired. TBC...sorry about last time, Sirius, hadn't refreshed my screen.
