To Jake's disappointment, Buizel's little inflation didn't do much, that Frillish was strong! Frillish continued to Absorb Buizel's health, only stopping when Buizel used Quick Attack to get on the ship. But Jake had little time to react when the Frillish fired a Confuse Ray right at him! The trainer fell backward, holding his head with one hand.Zorchic- Buizel was losing health fast and every bit lost meant a bit more gained for the Frillish. He had to get out of its hold. You shout out to the struggling Pokemon, instructing him to inflate his air sac. He does so to little avail, the Frillish isn't letting go! You then encourage him to break loose with another Quick Attack. Buizel spins his tail, propelling himself out of the water but failing to shake the Frillish loose. He crashes onto the deck of the ship, struggling for energy at this point. Sensing their isn't much strength left in the Buizel, Frillish releases its grip, allowing Buizel to catch his breath. Turning away from its opponent, the Frillish glares at you. You sense a rage in the opposing Water type, did this have something to do with the approaching full moon? The Frillish then catches you by surprise, firing off a Confuse Ray! The attack doesn't target Buizel though, instead you find yourself caught by the dazzling ray of light. Your eyesight spins like you're trapped in a washing machine, unable to see straight, you loose balance and begin to move around erratically.
Seeing the Frillish target you gives Buizel a boost, how dare it attack his trainer! He launches himself at the Frillish once more, slamming an Ice Punch into the back of its head. The ice from Buizel's fist spread across the Frillish's body, momentarily freezing it. This was the chance you'd been waiting for, throw that Pokeball! That was a task easier said than done right now, you were confused, how were you going to hit your target?!
Starly sits perched on a nearby tree, watching the young boy that you'd sent him to watch. He seems to be training with his Pokemon, nothing too sketchy yet. Suddenly an Electroweb comes flying out of nowhere, Starly attempts evasive action but is caught in the web. "Well look at what we have here. You're an odd looking one, where did you come from?"
"Well," Jake said dizzily, "at least we know what moves this Frillish has."
"Buizel!" Buizel cried in anger. He rushed toward the attacker with a powerful Ice Punch, freezing the blue Water Pokémon temporarily. The Sea Weasel Pokémon quickly motioned toward Jake, Catch that Frillish now!
Jake grimaced. That Confuse Ray...now he couldn't see straight! But luckily, he had been training for this. The thing was, what kind of Pokémon dared to attack a trainer? That was unethical, he thought! Whatever. Jake shook his head rapidly, momentarily shaking off the confusion, and reached inside his pocket for an empty Pokéball...
He figured that the Frillish might be able to help him understand the legend behind the full moon, though by the way it had treated Buizel, there was no way it would stay in his team--just long enough for Jake to understand why it was acting this way. Jake stood up unsteadily.
"Come on, Frillish," Jake pleaded. "We need your help. Comply with me and I'll send you back to where you came from. Truce?"
He didn't wait for a response, instead throwing the catching device. "Go, Pokéball!"
Ouch! Jake leaned against the ship's side, as another "twitch" from the confusion happened.
(OOC: Using Pokéball #1 out of 4.)
Starly chirped in alarm as an Electroweb came at him from nowhere. The Starling Pokémon twisted around, trying to free himself, but to no avail. Then, he noticed the boy looking suspiciously at him. The bird Pokémon knew that he looked different from other Starly, thanks to his different blue-colored feathers. Quickly, Starly Growled at the mysterious trainer, hoping to keep him away. The Normal- and Flying-type had a plan.
Alright, I'll pretend to be a wild Pokémon that just happens to be differently colored. Maybe that will lower the boy's suspicion. Good thing Jake seems to be able to read auras...he'll know what I'm trying to do, that is, if he comes to help soon.
