winter will be here until
March. Aside from the western Great Forest, which is too warm, and the Desert Strip, which is too dry, snow begins to fall across the region.

605 words - #Awk! @Shasyu
Though her travels seemed to flow by crazy quick, time since arriving at the camp seemed to drag. She wasn't a scientist, or someone with the knowledge and skills to help with whatever strange techie projects the main followers of Omega were working on. So, she'd been so bored since she arrived, hence the days feeling long. Being out in the wilderness, exploring and seeing all the new creatures and environments had been amazing. And experiencing it all with her little speedy fox had made it all the better.

But a part of her wished she'd just continued travelling. But here she was, sticking around to make sure she got the answers she came for. Luckily, it was only a few days before she was able to get a task out of someone. They'd loaded her up with equipment and necessary information for travelling into the mountain to find and mine some ore for them. In all honesty, it seemed like a pretty interesting task. She'd never seen a mountain before, and was curious to get a better look up close and explore the tunnels carved into it.

The only catch was they'd assigned her a partner.

Apparently there had been complaints or mishaps with people going alone who really weren't suited for it. Leo had been more than ready for the challenge, and knew that Jolteon was up for it as well. However, upon learning it would be just her and the electric-type, she earned a long speech about how bad of an idea that was, and found someone else who was going in to have them go together. After a few grumbling protests, the duo had conceded and headed off. She just wanted to get them off her back. And she had a feeling he had the same reason for going along with it, but couldn't be sure.

After a bit of a climb, following the directions from those at the camp, they'd arrived at the start of a tunnel, one that had yet to be traversed for metal yet. She peered inside, leaning in a bit to try and look through the darkness, though the light from the sun poured in pretty far before the darkness would be too much. Though it wasn't a perfect source of light, the fox padding next to her could create sparks of electricity, which would certainly create a bit of light if needed. And who knew whether this dude had a pokemon or item that could help as well.

She huffed, sparing a glance over to her 'partner'. "Well, you ready?" Waiting just long enough for an answer, the woman started to head into the tunnel, looking around and studying the walls. If he wanted to continue speaking, she'd respond, but she wasn't entirely sure what to talk about. It had been a little odd coming all this way without talking, but it wasn't uncomfortable. In fact, she didn't mind the lack of socialization at all. They were here to get a job done. A job that required minimal talking to coordinate finding and getting the metal back to camp.

Jolteon turned up her nose as they started into the tunnel, already getting a scent of the oddly cold and stuffy air. There were walls and a ceiling in this mountain. It wasn't exactly a place she'd prefer to be, always wanting to be in open environments, but she supposed she could humor the human for a little bit. She was, after all, curious what kind of creatures would call this strange place home. Seemed so unsuitable for living. Was there even food in here?

Victor wasn’t exactly sure what he was getting himself into, but he was never one to stray from work. He was always taking an opportunities to collect supplies for his travels. It was also a chance to meet and possibly befriend new pokemon. He was honestly wanting to use the heavy ball he obtained months ago.

Unfortunately, to complete this job it required a partner. A human partner. Sure, help could be a good thing, but Victor preferred his own partners. Ghost marched beside him. He figured she was his best bet to get through this. Perhaps Wisp could be of some help, but the fragility of the seedling worried him. For now, he’d keep the little guy on reserve. The ball of grass remained in his pack keeping the egg company.

Spirit was looking for a fight, but his extreme weakness to rock types worried the wanderer. Sure, the ledyba’s fighting moves could come in handy, but that wasn’t a risk he’d take so easily. Approaching the tunnel, Victor could see the other trainer waiting. Beside her was another fox like pokemon. A jolteon. Meeting her face-to-face, she asked if he was ready.

“Yeah, about as ready as I can get,” he answered casually. From the girls tone, he could tell she was enthusiastic About this as he was. He analyzed the girl and her pokemon. Victor worried that this was her only companion. Why else would she choose one so weak to the elements of this cave.

“Perhaps we should catch each other's name? In case we get seperated I don’t want to shout out ‘hey random girl!’” Victor tried to break the ice with his poor attempt at humor. “I’m Victor,”

Ghost was super excited to see another fox-like pokemon. They were going to be friends she would make sure of it. While the two human trainers explored and examined the tunnel, The vulpix couldn't help but walk beside the jolteon.

“Hello, am Ghost!” she yipped joyfully as she wagged her tails.

@Kaien @Shasyu

They wouldn't make it far into the tunnel before someone approached them. Multiple someones.

Multiple someones who were, quite honestly, sick and tired of humans barging into their home, breaking their walls and ceilings and floors apart with strange and frightening tools, stealing pieces of their homes... some humans even killed them, willy nilly, believing their own purposes to be worth more than the lives of those whose homes they trespassed into.

But no more. They would put a stop to it. At least, they would if this Diglett had anything to say about it. He had assembled a group of (mostly) willing comrades in arms, those who he had grown with and fought with. Every so often, they would gather together and head toward the front of the tunnel they called home, patrolling it for a few hours before dispersing to return to their individual lives. So far, they hadn't been lucky (or unlucky) enough to be at the right place at the right time to encounter one of the encroaching humans...

But today, their luck changed.

The Zubat was the first among their small ranks to hear the intruders, thanks of course to his sensitive ears. //Humans! Two of them!// He cried in his shrill voice, his voice carrying deeper into the tunnel rather than toward Victor and Leona. The next voice, however, was meant for them.

//Turn back now, or you'll regret you ever stepped foot in here! Alright, guys, get in formation, and advance until you can see them!//

Shuffling noises and hushed voices followed, until out of the inky darkness ahead of them came two- no, four Pokemon, arranged in a square formation. In the front row, a mammal with exceptionally large claws, a long white face with a pink nose, and a dark body. Beside her, a blue and purple bat fluttered, wings flapping madly as he remained afloat beside his mole partner.

In the second row, another mole (apparently), this one moving through the ground about as easily as a fish moved through water, popping his pink-nosed, beady-eyed head up every now and then to check on his comrades and his surroundings. Also in the second row, trundled along a rock which dragged himself along with his arms. His eyes kept darting hither and thither, looking both ahead of himself as well as shooting frequent glances behind himself.

//There!// Screeched the Drilbur, the first to spot them.

//Halt!// Cried the Diglett from behind, the apparent leader of the quartet. //Second rank, support. First rank, offense!//

//Yes, sir!// Cried the Zubat, nearly bursting with eagerness. He was the first to dart forward, singling out Ghost as the smaller and, presumably, weaker of the two. He opened his mouth wide and made an odd breathy inhaling noise; a green bubble appeared before him and zipped through the air toward the white fox. A simple attack, used to absorb a bit of the enemy's energy and return it.

The Drilbur acted with only a slight delay, choosing Jolteon as her target. She rushed the yellow fox head-on, slashing out at the last moment with her outrageously long claws, aiming at the fox's front legs. Hit or miss, she'd attempt to return to her place beside the Zubat after the attack, and shout out as she did so: //Geodude, she's an electric-type, I think!//

The Geodude hesitated, still shifting his gaze inconsistently, but then opened his mouth wide and released a stream of mud straight up into the air, where some of it splattered against the tunnel ceiling and some of it splashed back down towards the rest of them, spattering everywhere.

The Diglett, all the while, had merely growled from his place behind the Drilbur; but if Ghost or Jolteon ever made a move to escape, they'd find their path suddenly blocked, as the Diglett had his gaze and utmost focus locked on the both of them, and he'd never let them leave. Not without a sound whooping, at least...

638 words - BRING IT @Shasyu
Slightly grinning from the attempt at humor, the woman appreciated his light joke. It wasn't enough to earn a laugh from her, but then again she didn't commonly laugh around other humans. Nothing personal, she was just never comfortable enough with them to relax so much. Funny or not, the man had a fair point. Though she wasn't confident if they did get split up that she'd go shouting in the dark, dangerous caves for him. "Victor, gotcha. I'm Leo-" She cut off the name there, ears perking as she glanced into the tunnel.

The jolteon was padding in place, as if running but not going anywhere, as the others arrived and started to interact. She was anxious to get moving, never really preferring to sit in one place. Her human was usually the same, the both of them running practically all the time. But these new guys were apparently joining them. Would they be able to keep up? "Hey Ghost. I like your energy." The soft barks kept the fox's tone light and friendly. She looked as if she was going to say more, but suddenly stopped, feet planted on the ground and ears perking up as her snout turned into the tunnel.

The both of them, having spent so much time out in the wilds training, learning to listen for faint signs of life in order to hunt, were more keen to the noises in the tunnel. Leona had been keeping alert just in case something was dwelling inside the cave, planning to stay as such as they got in. Apparently, they wouldn't even really get into the tunnel before they'd be joined by possibly hostile pokemon or people. She stiffened, her hand going to the double-bladed dagger strapped to her hip.

As a group of pokemon started to appear from the tunnel, 4 in count, without them having to move, the woman pulled the dagger from the makeshift twine strap holding it up. Wielding the blade, she waited to see what they would do, the one mole in the back seeming to squeak out. The fox raised an eyebrow, but before she could get a word off they were heading in, the front two moving to attack them, apparently.

The ground-type dashed forward and slashed it's long, sharp claws at the fox. Despite her much better speed and manueverability, she was not able to escape the entirety of the attack. She clearly needed to get better at dodging, the pokemon thought to her self. Her eyes flickered to the other, the bat launching itself at the little ice fox. "Tradesies!" She barked, hoping the pokemon would get the hint as she started to charge up.

Unfortunately, mud sputtered off the roof of the tunnel and got in her fur, which would dampen her attack slightly. But she knew it would still be strong regardless. She jumped back, trying to shake the mud and getting a little further away from the mole, before collecting her electricity quickly. She fired off the attack, the lighting flashing in the tunnel and attempting to crash into the bat in front of her new friend.

Leona, on the other hand, was in full fight mode, her flight response not quite dominant in this situation. Seeing the pokemon scratch at her partner was enough to get her to move into action, the woman acting to retaliate. While she was oblivious about type advantages and disadvantages, she knew one thing: The mole was made of flesh, and daggers cut flesh. She lunged in, attempting to slash the dagger at the ground-type, pulling back once she hit or miss to try and make sure she wasn't in range to get hit back, hopping back since the little thing was closer to her ankles than the rest of her body.

“Leo? Okay,” Victor thought to himself. Before he could respond to her, he could see she was distracted by something. He didn’t make a sound as Leo appeared to be listening out for something nearby. He slowed his breathing and made sure not to move a muscle to make as little sound as possible.

Suddenly a group of pokemon attacked. There were three ground types and a zubat. Ghost dashes over to Victor’s side immediately. The fox wanted to play with her new friend and now she would have to deal with these bullies. Before she could get an attack off, the incoming zubat zipped by her, using a draining ability. She felt a slight dose of energy sapped from her body. Ghost shook it off preparing to attack.

The jolteon wanted to take on the zubat, however. It was for the best. Ghost stepped back to seek a new target. There was a drilbur that made contact with jolteon as its claws swiped the yellow fox. Ghost inhaled deeply before letting out a cold wind of snow at the black and blue mole.

Victor felt confident his vulpix could handle the drilbur, but if he learned anything from his journey it was to act immediately. These pokemon seemed set on combat and it was safer for the party to fight back rather than negotiate.

“I’ll handle the others while you take care of the zubat!” Victor called out as he turned his attention to Leo. To his surprise she had whipped out a knife and had lunged forward to stab the drilbur. That was something he had yet to witness in his travels. A human fighting a pokemon on their own. He wasn’t sure if he should be impressed or disturbed. He brushed it off, because survival came first.

Victor set down his backpack as Wisp crawled out of it. He looked around with worry and could see easily what was happening. Another battle? Here we go, he guessed. Immediately after, the trainer summoned Spirit from his pokeball. The bug appeared from the light already prepared to rumble.

“Alright you two, we need your help,” Victor spoke assertively to his pokemon. “Spirit your silver wind at the diglett. I know I can count on you,” he commanded. “Wisp, little guy, I need you to give it your best and show that diglett what you got!” The two charged ahead to take on the leader of the pack. Victor wasn’t worried so much about the geodude. From the looks of it, it didn’t seem like much of a threat or really wanting to battle.

@Kaien @Shasyu

(Don't forget to track the -1 attack from the Growl that Diglett used last turn~)

The two opponents originally sited suddenly turned into four- no five opponents, and the Diglett felt a brief but sharp pang of panic. Even as he himself was attacked, he kept a sharp eye on the battlefield as a whole; and he knew he had to pay close attention, and probably alter his strategy, if they were to recover any chance of success here.

Quick as- well, lightning- the yellow fox pulled a fast one on poor Zubat, shocking him literally out of the sky. The bat plummeted toward the ground, barely catching himself at the last minute before pulling up sharply, panting with the effort. The Drilbur was already retreating by the time the smaller white fox, and she was veering away from the trajectory of the attack, when the human jumped in, false claw grasped in her hand and slashing at the mole. The Drilbur dodged the knife-slash, but in dodging that attack she was placed more squarely in the cone of the ice-attack that came her way, unable to dodge the assaults that came from both behind and from the side.

Diglett, for his part, drew the most ire. The two newest Pokemon combatants on the field both set their sites on him; he was hit by both of the attacks that came his way, and boy did they hurt. Though there was no visible damage on him, his skin stung all over. He pushed the pain aside, though. He needed to focus. To lead.

//Change! Focus the white one!//

The order was brief, but the others knew what was meant, and what they had to do. Each wild Pokemon quickly attempted to rally their morale and spirits after the sudden onslaught of attacks, and prepared to renew their assault.

First, however, the Diglett darted out in front before turning sharply in a wide arc, blasting dirt and debris aimed primarily at the Jolteon and the Ledyba. Hopefully, it would help quell the threat that these two represented. The Budew could be ignored for now, young weak as it was.He still needed to figure out what to do about that human, though. But, the new strategy was to focus one opponent at a time, to take them out quickly while taking as little damage as possible themselves.

The Drilbur was the first to dash toward Ghost, claws flashing out at the last minute, aiming ruthlessly for the white fox's face. The Zubat was close behind, again aiming his long-distance energy-sucking attack at Ghost. He wanted to be able to attack twice in quick succession like Diglett could, but he had neither the speed nor the experience.

The Geodude heard the order given by the Diglett, but... couldn't muster the courage or will to join the aggressive rush. Neither did he have the desire yet to stand uselessly aside while his friends fought for their lives, though. Augh, he hated this! He had to defend his home and his friends, but... he didn't want to hurt anyone. And he didn't want to be hurt, either!

In an act of disobedience, the armed rock stayed behind, choosing to focus his personal defenses and his team's defenses. His body grew harder, more impenetrable; and the air around his allies shimmered slightly, indicating that... something had happened. An energy was there, prepared to defend them in case their enemies had any particularly powerful tactics in their arsenal.

Leona had noted Victor's silence when she was listening out for the threats. Most people tended to be overly chatty, and completely oblivious to silent cues. It was... refreshing that he seemed to have caught on to her so quickly. Perhaps moving through this tunnel wouldn't be a terrible experience after all. In a partner, even for such a short task, she needed someone with keen senses and preferably the ability to work alongside someone without having a drawn out conversation involving needless small talk. Only time would tell if the positive behavior would continue.

But everything was moving so quickly, so fast. They needed to spur into action, and Victor called out as she started to move towards the mole with her dagger. Unfortunately her attack had missed, but she smirked as the creature stumbled into a full blow from the little ice fox's attack. Well, that was something, so she supposed it was successful in the end, even if she had missed. But clearly this fight was far from over. Luckily, the man pulled out pokeballs and released a couple more pokemon, immediately issuing orders to them.

Perhaps she would be better off getting another partner or two.

She internally grimaced at the thought and shoved it aside. This wasn't the time or place to think about that anyway. Jolteon's instinct was spot on, as she'd expected, and the creature zapped the bat out of the air. It recovered quickly, and the mole in the back was apparently speaking. So, it must be the 'leader' of this little odd-ball group of pokemon. But, it wasn't dealing the direct attacks, so it could wait to be attacked, probably. Either way, it seemed the man's other pokemon were going after it, so she didn't need to worry.

The rock creature seemed to simply stay to itself. Smart. If it doesn't jump into the fight, then she would see no need to kill it for survival. They didn't need another opponent anyway.

She spared a look at Jolteon, crossing her finger in the shape of a lightning bolt and pointing at the Zubat that was back up, and attacking the vulpix. Much to her chagrin, she would need the help of Victor and his pokemon to get the metal, so for now they were a team. And being a team meant working together, and having each others back. Well, as long as it wasn't life or death. In that case, every creature for themselves. Since that wasn't the current situation, helping keep that flying menace off of them would be good. With the other little digger being double-teamed, she could keep her efforts on the mole attacking them directly.

Jolteon had noticed her human miss, and the order given quickly after. Her human really needed to get better at actually striking her targets, clearly. She'd seen her training, and noticed her getting ever so slightly faster over time, but she still had a long way to go. Either way, her battle was still on. The diglett shot a bunch of dirt over at her, which made her close her eyes and shake away the dirt that got on her face. She got as much off in a few seconds as possible, and refocused on the zubat. "Awww, c'mon little bat, just going to ignore me? You know, that's not very nice, now is it?" She snickered as the electricity sparked and flashed as her fur rubbed together, preparing the attack. It collected and fired off in a bolt, shooting towards the bat.

Ona would leap into action as well. She may not be able to fully stop the attack of the drilbur from hitting the vulpix, but she was at least going to try to help slaying it. Plus, the creature was focused on the new target now, and hopefully not paying as much attention to her. It was be unfortunate if she missed yet again, but she had to keep trying. She lunged forward, slashing the blade at the little mole, preparing to get back and away from all 3 of the pokemon actively working against their group, not really interested in getting injured today. Pokemon were notably more powerful that humans, so she needed to be careful.

So much was happening and Victor was worried someone from their team would not make it. Ghost had taken a lot of damage and the ambush party didn’t seem to care to attack the others. Leona and Victor’s team were being affected by the support moves. This mud was dampening Jolteon’s power and now the team had sand in their eyes. Of all the pokemon in the ambush team the diglett seemed to be the one that would go down the quickest. Victor figured they should take advantage of this.

Leona had already acted and went ahead to attack the drilbur once more. Jolteon was definitely a team player as it went to attempted to zap the zubat that had been attacking Ghost. The fox would have greatly appreciated it if the flying rat would quit sapping her energy. Spirit was not going to stand for a loss here. He was also very angry that the tiny mole got sand in his eyes. He’d beat the creature back into the hole it came from. Spirit let out a rageful cry as it summoned stars in front of it. The manifest shapes of light fired swiftly toward the enemy party.

At this time, Victor needed to stop that diglett from causing anymore trouble. The trainer pointed toward the little mole “Wisp, I need you to go for the diglett. Absorb!” he cried out as the seedling hesitated. His team needed him though. The budew waddled on ahead in the chaos to attack the little brown mole. “Ghost! Powder snow against diglett!” commanded the trainer as the fox dashed ahead to attack.

@Kaien @Shasyu

Things were falling apart, and quickly. Even as he struggled to dodge the attacks that came his way- he succeeded in mostly dodging the powder snow, but the absorb hit him exactly- he watched as lightning crashed against the youngest member of his team once again, and that detestable meddling human just barely cut into the Drilbur's skin. Luckily, the Ledyba's attack flew harmlessly past all of them, the stars bouncing off of Geodude's invisible shield, wide guard. If it weren't for that, they'd probably all be goners already. He was suddenly and intensely grateful that the Geodude had disobeyed his earlier orders.

//Friends, we're not going to win this. Retreat, I will cover you!//

Except that no-one did. It seemed that none of them wanted to leave the Diglett's side. (well, that one in the back did want to, but he wasn't quite willing to.)

The Zubat felt like her body was going to burst apart when she was struck the second time with lightning, but she managed to hang on, somehow. But when the order for retreat was called... she didn't know what to do. She didn't want to leave her leader, or her friends... but she didn't know what to do with herself when there weren't any orders to tell her what to do! So she defaulted back to the previous order: attack the white one. Using the same attack- the only offensive move in her arsenal- she circled around and tried to absorb the creature's health again. She found her movements hard to make, her muscles moving jerkily instead of smoothly. But maybe the energy she absorbed could keep her going long enough to... to... she didn't even know. She didn't really want to think about it.

The Drilbur, however, was glad for the lack of orders. It meant she could go after the one she was truly angry at: that stupid human. She'd nearly been able to dodge the human's attack, but had been just slightly too slow, and the long but shallow gash along her back ached. Turning about suddenly, she dashed at Leona, claws flailing in a circular motion, a loathing grimace etched onto her face as she tried to land the attack anywhere on the human. If the human wanted to play dirty, boy, the Drilbur was more than willing.

The Diglett weighed his options. Success was not likely, but he had one strong move that could potentially shift the tide in their favor. And knowing that the Geodude was protecting the rest of his team made him more willing to use it. He let out a war cry; loud, piercing. He began to make rounds, making loops around his enemies, screaming and shouting and even lashing out physically if he ever got close enough to do so. It was like a temper tantrum- a loud, dangerous, flailing temper tantrum.

(Swift does no damage due to wide guard; Uproar targets all Pokemon on the field but does no damage to Diglett's team due to wide guard.)

707 words - Ohh it's GONNA DIE NOW!! @Shasyu
Leona was glad that her blade connected this time, for no further reason than ending this fight sooner rather than later. Though the hit wasn't as deep as it could have been, any damage was helpful progress at defeating this group. They did seem to be losing their confidence in this fight they started. Good. They were not going to win against her and Jolteon, especially with the help of Victor's team. It was a shame that Victor was the type to stand back and let his pokemon do the work, but not everyone was capable of fighting, she supposed.

Jolteon had noticed the decrease in morale as well. When the diglett called for a retreat, she was glad to hear it. But unfortunately, it seemed they didn't have the common sense to take the hint and actually leave. She huffed, though in reality she loved fighting anyway, so she wasn't complaining much. The zubat was certainly feeling the effects of her attacks, even if the mud in her fur was dampening the intensity of her power. The ground sitting on top of her was absorbing some of the static before she could fire it off, but one more blast should be plenty to bring the bat down.

She pulled together her energy again, rolling her eyes as the pokemon went in to attack the little fox once again. It was easy to tell the battle was taking a wear on the poor little white kid. This wasn't the ideal environment for her, and she certainly didn't seem excited by the thrill of the fight like the electric type was. Still, it would be best to end the fight as soon as possible, as their would likely be more pokemon to encounter further into this tunnel. She hoped the humans weren't planning on lingering around this place too long.

Once she was charged up, she fired off the attack, her eyes focusing on her target even as she noticed the drilbur turning on her human, who'd been attacking. Well, that couldn't be good. She waited to make sure her attack would hit if possible, hoping this would hit and bring the creature down for the count. Then maybe the ice-type would be left alone, and they could focus their forces on that annoying diglett in the back, terrorizing them and seeming to give all the commands. Maybe taking out the bat and mole would make the others finally turn and run, or at least let them move along peacefully.

Leo had been expecting the pokemon to eventually turn on her. It was an outcome she'd clearly predicted, as it wouldn't make sense for the mole to simply ignore a large creature slashing at it with a knife. So when the drilbur started to face her, she was hopping back to try and avoid the attack. The attack was much quicker than before, and too fast for her to avoid. The claws dug into her left calf, cutting the surface but not hitting anything major, or doing any major injury to her leg. But she did not call out in pain, or give a verbal reaction of any sort.

She simply looked down at her leg as it was cut open, the spiraling pokemon following through the attack. Her expression started neutral, as she inspected the wound, feeling the sharp pain as it pinged at her leg. As the blood started to ooze quickly out of her calf, her face started to change, eyebrows furrowing as her eyes widened in anger, glaring at the drilbur and lurching into action again, attempting to stab the dagger into the ground-type's flesh. It managed to make her bleed, and that was unacceptable.

The electric-type's ears perked up as the scent of blood quickly hit, head jerking towards the human as the drilbur recovered its stance after the attack. Of course the woman was practically un-phased by the pain, almost immediately moving into action once more to retaliate. But, she couldn't just let her fight alone, not when she'd already been damaged. She took an extra moment, as the uproar pierced her ears and drained her energy slightly, before rushing towards the drilbur to tackle it after Leona's dagger attack was finished.

This fight was not going well. Even if the pack that was attacking them was going down, Victor wished it didn’t have to go this way. On top of this, Ghost had taken a lot of damage and she was his key player here. Not just that, but he never really wanted her to take so much damage. She was a tough little one, but she was still his partner. Fortunately for the two trainers and their pokemon, the geodude continued not engaging in direct battle, but it’s defensive abilities were making things a bit more difficult.

The only pokemon of the pack that really seemed out for blood were the two moles. Victor know if they went down, then the others would likely flee. As the diglett drew near its end, it let out a powerful attack against Leo’s jolteon. If it wasn’t halted immediately then his tunnel partner could be losing their pokemon. Leo was handling the drilbur well enough, but it was able to cut into her a bit. She was resilient though, because that didn’t stop her from attempting another strike with her weapon against the sharp clawed mole.

The poor little zubat was fighting as best it could even if it didn’t want to. Victor didn’t really want the thing to be taken down for hard just for following its pack into battle. The auburn haired traveler wanted to end this fight with as little casualties as possible. He’d have to rely on Ghost and WIsp for this, because Spirit was a loose cannon. Before he could call for any commands, the little zubat zipped by once more, draining a bit of energy from the white fox. Even after taking another zap from jolteon it kept fighting.

“Wisp, use grass whistle on the zubat!” he called out. The seedling waddled over to get a clear shot, letting out a whistle that zoomed toward the bat, hopefully putting it to sleep. It was better that way over being killed by the jolteon. Spirit was able to get the sand out of his eyes, but his vision wasn’t exactly clearing up that well. The ledyba was going to attack the first opponent he saw, he didn’t care if it was that stupid geodude. His eyes locked onto the diglett who had been shrieking with it’s dying breath. Yeah, he was going to punch it back down the hole it came from. The bug shot forward aiming to use drain punch the diglett back into the ground.

With Ghost not willing to go down so easily, Victor had to make sure she would be okay before running back into the fight. He pulled out a potion, using it on the fox. Spraying it on her wounds, she seemed to feel a slight sting, but it was nothing she couldn't take.

“Alright, girl, the big one has to go, back up our teammates!” he commanded as the fox darted toward the bigger mole to give it a chilling breeze. Hopefully the moles would retreat and Leo wouldn’t have to keep stabbing. He understood that this was about survival, but Victor was never in a situation where he had to harm a pokemon directly. Did that make him a coward? Weak? He surely didn’t think it made him any better for not doing so. Whatever, the trainer just had to focus on the battle for now.

@Kaien @Shasyu

The Zubat was not having a great battle. That electric fox had it out for him from the very beginning, and boy was it showing. His wings were sluggish, his body sore, his mind frazzled. The energy sapped from the white fox replenished him somewhat, kept him going, but for how long? His muscles shivered as if in anticipation; another attack was coming. He tried to dodge, turning steeply to the left, but he was too slow. A screeching shout echoed out over the sounds of the battle, and he felt his wings cramp. He began to tumble out of the air toward the ground, and as he did so, was enveloped in an... oddly relaxing tune. Sleep, it told his mind, rest now.

He was powerless to resist, drifting to sleep and falling like dead weight onto the cave floor, right in the midst of the battle.

Meanwhile, the Drilbur was attempting to dodge another attack from that persistent human; again, she failed, ducking a second too late. Damage was done, but it was nothing more than a simple scratch across her shoulder and side, barely even drawing specks of blood. She was about to retaliate, when something on the other side of the battlefield caught her attention.

The Ledyba, one of the two Pokemon that had been mostly ignored throughout the whole violent event, and fluttered right up to the rampaging mole that was the leader of the group. The bug drew back a fist, then with its forward momentum through a punch right into the mole's small face- there was a crunching sound, likely not heard by anyone but the Ledyba itself due to the general noise and chaos of the battlefield, and the mole's face caved in as the bones of its nose and the surrounding area cracked and broke. The Diglett's eyes went very suddenly blank and it's body went limp. The sudden silence that replace the Diglett's previous uproar was deafening, and was what had caught the Drilbur's attention.

The mole charged to the other side of the battlefield, the Jolteon's tackle glancing off of her as she ran past, and completing ignoring the chill of the white wind that buffeted her as well. A guttural sound ripped from its throat as blind rage from the death of her leader and friend took over her. She jumped at the Ledyba, claws extended, aiming for its thin, delicate limbs. She tore blindly at it over and over again, aiming to tear its death-dealing arms right off of its body. She'd even settle for ripping of a wing. Yes, the wings were practically paper thin on these bugs, tear of the wings...

The Geodude was in shock. He sat further back in the tunnel, his half-glazed eyes sort of drifting over the battlefield, not seeing much. Diglett was... dead? And... was it... his fault? He had done nothing. Diglett died and he had done nothing. Nothing. And now Diglett was nothing. And Zubat, Zubat was... he wasn't dead, too, was he? So young... But Drilbur was still here. He should help Drilbur, make Drilbur safe... but he couldn't move.

439 words - Hah, we won. @Shasyu
The lighting shined brightly in the ever darkening tunnel. They were close to the entrance still, which meant they didn't have to worry about darkness yes, but still the contrast from the depths of the tunnel pushing on past their location and the brightness of the creature's thunder shock was stunning. It lashed out at the zubat, a final taste of power that ended up being the last needed. And what good timing it was, given the mole's attempt at hurting her trainer.

With the bat falling to the floor unconscious, they were both able to completely focus on the other offensive fighter right next to them. The more dangerous of the two, arguably. Though, as was made clear once the fox's attack missed from the pokemon running away, their target was not even slightly focused on the group anymore. The little mole have in the ground went limp, and Leona smirked. That bug was really something.

But the drilbur was clearly very upset by the loss of her friend, going into a rage and chasing off after the ledyba. The woman moved as if to chase, but the sting of her leg reminded her that it wasn't the best maneuver. Besides, the odds were way stacked in their favor now, so there was no need for her to be involved anymore. Still, they couldn't just leave the bug alone to be attacked by the raging pokemon.

"Jolteon." She spoke firmly, but quietly. The electric type look up at her, and she motioned the fist forward. Without confirming or nodding, because that would simply be a waste of time between the two of them, the pokemon shot forward, her speed aiding her to try and keep the ground-type from doing too much damage. She ran as fast as she could, leaping and tucking her head as she did so, turning slightly to avoid hurting her neck. She attempted to tackle the drilbur, trying to bump it away from the ledyba.

In the meantime, since she wasn't going to be fighting, the woman pulled her bag around, so she could awkwardly but deftly reach inside it. She ruffled for a moment before pulling out some cloth, before carefully kneeling on the ground, eyes watching curiously as the geodude continued to sit back. This fight was almost over, but she wanted to get moving as soon as possible. She took the spare cloth and tightly wrapped it around her leg, blocking off the wound to stop the bleeding. Last thing she needed was to get an infection from leaving it exposed and be off her leg for a while.

Victor Emerson

@Kaien

With the zubat going down to Wisp’s attack, Victor let out a sigh of relief. He didn’t want the young bat to take any more damage than it already had. Anymore and it could end up dying. Leo and her jolteon didn’t really seem to mind though. In fact, it appeared as if that was the goal. Wisp felt a sense of pride as the bat drifted off into a sleep. He liked being able to end battles by putting a pokemon at rest rather than drain them dry. Also, it meant he wouldn’t be taking any damage.

Now that one target was down and the geodude didn’t really seem interested in fighting, the trainer duo had to focus on the aggressive moles. Leo was handling the drilbur with her blade along with Ghost who Victor had hoped would go down with that last powder snow. The fox didn’t really have much energy to keep going. Sure her wounds were temporarily numbed by the potion her trainer gave her, but she still needed to get some rest soon or she’d pass out. Now if only they could shut that diglett up!

Sadly the way that the diglett was finally silenced was not what Ghost or anyone on Victor’s team could have hoped for. Spirit flew forward in a blind rage, aiming his fist at the tiny mole, not caring about the consequences of his actions. The bug who sought to challenge everyone and everything did not hold back as his fist punched in the diglett’s face, crushing the mole’s nose. Feeling the bones crack as he made contact he had yet to process the lack of motion coming from the tiny pokemon.

The ledyba only cared that the diglett had finally shut its mouth and was no longer killing everyone with its loud mouth. He floated above the body, panting in a moment of silence as he realized what he had done. It wasn’t that he felt guilt for killing the diglett, it was that it wasn’t what he was aiming to do. What could he gain for killing one smaller than he? His vision cleared up some as he leered down at the mole in shock. Seeing the lifeless body, he landing on the ground in front of it.

Victor, Ghost, and Wisp watched as their ally murdered the tiny mole. The trainer froze for a moment to process the moment. He didn’t like to kill pokemon, especially when they were just trying to defend themselves, but in order to get through this he had to remind himself that it was that or death for his team. Spirit may not have intended to do what he did, but it was for the better. The trainer wasn’t angry with the bug but felt sorry for him. “Spirit…” he spoke.

The bug did not respond. Not because it was ignoring his trainer as usual, but because he was focused on the body of the mole and nothing else seemed to phase him. This was the distraction that the drilbur needed. The larger mole seeking revenge for its fallen comrade had charged in with her claws out in a rage. “Spirit!” the trainer called out once more. He tried to warn the bug, but he would not respond. Victor reached for the ledyba’s pokeball to return him before it was too late, but the drilbur was too fast.

Spirit had only turned when he heard the dribulr shirek out in anger as it came toward him. He was only able to dodge the first scratch attack before the second one came slicing at him. Spirit made an attempt to punch the drilbur in the face before he would take the scratch attack, but that was his mistake. The drilburs claw had cut through the bug’s arm slicing it off. The bug shock continued. The trauma of the loss of a limb was too much for him to process at the moment as he went down in a failed attempt to punch with a fist that wasn’t there. “No!” Victor cried out as his pokemon fell forward.

In a moment of bravery, Wisp jumped forward, landing on the mole’s head. He began using absorb in an attempt to finally take down the mole. He may not have been strong like his friends, but he couldn’t stand by while the others had taken a great amount of damage. “Stop hurting my friends!” the budew shouted, as she tried to help Leona’s jolteon in taking down the drilbur.

@Kaien @Shasyu

The Drilbur's bloodlust was not satisfied even as she felt a leg come loose from the murdering bug's torso. She moved in for another strike- but the opponent she had left behind caught up with her. The Jolteon was much too quick to be avoided, and the Drilbur had delved too deeply into obsessive tunnel-vision to notice the fox's rapid approach.

The hit was solid, and with a cry of outrage that would have been louder if it hadn't been such a long and exhausting battle, the Drilbur was thrown against the floor of the cave, her head landing with a solid thwack against the ground. The young grass-type's attack hit right at that moment, though there truly wasn't much energy to be absorbed from the downed mole.

The Drilbur did not rise from her fall. Neither did she draw a single breath after landing.

It was unclear if the Jolteon's physical assault had killed the second mole or the Budew's energy-sucking had done so. Either way, the Drilbur was no longer a threat.

Two were dead, now, one was unconscious and paralyzed but alive as evidenced by the rapid and shallow breaths coming from the bat, and the final one...

The Geodude's eyes were blank and his face unreadable as he remained stock-still, staring at the Drilbur's corpse, or perhaps through it. He seemed to have zoned entirely out of the moment, no longer paying any attention to those who were in the room with him save for his two fallen comrades. If he was not approached, he would not speak nor move nor even blink.

Victor, Leona, and their companions were free to tend to their wounds as they needed, and perform any other actions they felt they needed to do before continuing their search.

(Sorry for short post, but basically everyone's dead. Even that Geodude. He's dead on the inside.)
