Jamie's heart missed a beat when Lunatone struck the ground unconscious, Volcape victorious against a foe who it had a type disadvantage against, and as Volcape staggered over and collapsed in his arms, exhausted but triumphant in the way that someone carrying a baby from a burning building smiles in spite of the horrific burns taken to save the life, and Jamie could only smie back at him, proud of the achievement. What happened next, however, took the happiness from the victory and burned it in the lava of despair as they watched Lunatone disappear into mere lights, almost as though the tomb willed the expiry of it as punishment for failure, and leaving a small orb behind. Took shocked to move, Jamie looked at the orb and at Volcape, who returned the sort of look that he wasn't the only pokemon he had. With nothing but a nod and a sudden flash, Arctacea the Snover stook in front of them, wondering where he were as he turned to the trainer and the injured but victorious Chimchar, surprise in his eyes.

Fishyfool ~ This battle was more than a test of strength of Pokemon and human but a test of heart and you felt a tears form in yours as Lunatone cried out melodiously at another strike on its form. Your emotions were raw and filling your whole being, your first battle and it was such a heart-wrenching one. Were they all like this? Would you break down every time you had to face a new opponent? For right now you wanted this battle done, over, finished … before anymore pain was inflicted on either Pokemon. Lunatone stared right at you its red eye betraying its strength and showing its emotions. It understood your need to fight it but your words had stirred something deep inside and it had a new longing that it had never felt before and it was conflicted.
Tearing your gaze away for fear that the floodgates would open and tears that would never end would flow you manage to compose yourself enough to strategise. Volcape was a small yet agile monkey and could move faster than the bulky moon Pokemon. You could use that to your advantage and hopefully finish the battle quickly. Volcape was hunched over in pain and dripping with sweat, exhaustion wracking his body, he appeared in no condition to fight on yet his eyes were filled with the same determination that shone at the start of the battle. You feel your Snover’s pokeball by your side and wonder for a moment, would it be wrong to call her out? Volcape would be able to rest and heal but you may never be able to heal his pride for doing so. Such a decision you made to carry on may permanently affect your Chimchar but deep down you felt it the right one.
Praising Volcape and promising him a delicious treat after the battle was done brought a smile to the Chimchars face as he held in a giggle. You could understand if he couldn’t continue on but this seemed to just fuel the fire of determination keeping him going and he stood tall. Proudly you smile feeling a few fresh tears escape your eyes and trek down your cheek. With a strategy formed you convey what you pray is the last onslaught for Volcape and he gives no signs of hearing your order, merely stared at Lunatone who focused on you with its good eye. Volcape backed up as per your instructions and Lunatone seemed deep within its own thoughts, pain shining in it’s eye from the attacks it had racked up. Its eye turned to a blue colour once more and both you and Volcape knew what was to follow. You stared worriedly at the spot Volcape was last at only to see him charging towards Lunatone, that wasn’t part of the plan! Volcape moved in a haphazard movement and you could see that Lunatone was having trouble focusing on him. Grinning at his ingeninuity you see him leap up and grab onto Lunatone sitting before his nose causing Lunatone to panic slightly and shake back and forth to knock him off. Holding on tight Volcape slammed a Thunderpunch into Lunatones good eye making it shriek in agony and you bite your lip feeling more tears flow. Lunatone crashes to the ground and with a final flurry of Embers from Volcape it lay unmoving, the light in its eyes diminished as it was KO’ed. Level-Up for Volcape.
Volcape gave it a look a respect before tiredly walking over to you and collapsing in your arms. Lunatone disappears into thousands of bright pink lights and joins those dancing around the walls leaving only a small round pink orb behind with a moon symbol in white in its centre on the ground. You hear a crackle and buzz as the barrier behind you shattered the energy floating up to disappear into the ceiling. There was nothing between you and your treasure now. Upon closer inspection the chest had several lines leading to a round circular divot in its centre but no other locks. Now was the time to open it and receive your treasure.
The look in the eyes of Jamie, however, told him that a battle had been through and Volcape was successful, as Arctacea gave a little round of applause, the sound of the limbs knocking together like two logs clunking throughout the area. As the three turned to the barrier, it shattered and Arctacea's eyes lit up like baubles at the chest in the centre. Looking at it and the emotional wreck of Jamie and Volcape, it knew that the two were in no state to really argue about anything as he lumbered to the orb Volcape looked at with sorrow, and jubilantly plucked it from the ground as though it were just an orb, before handing it to Jamie as he hoisted the exhausted Volcape's arm over his shoulder for support as the pair grinned at each other. Examining the divot and the orb, which seemed warm to the touch, Jamie knew exactly what it was for as he walked to the chest, the sound of Lunatone's cry in his heart as he slowly placed the orb into the divot, his body trembling at the sight of watching a pokemon's life end suddenly and mysteriously.
