Vs. Gym Leader Jasmine

Judging by Jasmine's expression, she was just as shaken as Joey was by her Steelix's violent retaliation. Anger was something she'd learned was just a part of her Steelix, but to have acted so harshly against a challenger... it worried her. "Yes, but... oh..." she began, glancing anxiously at her partner. Perhaps the steel snake had simply been picking up on her concern for her friend at the lighthouse and pinned blame on the biker, shifting it to include his Pokémon as well. "I'm still so sorry. It might be my fault, really, that she's like this today. I'm just..." Jasmine trailed off, biting her lip. No, there was no need to draw Joey into personal matters, not after what had just happened.
Shaking her head, she tried to focus on the battle, soft brown eyes widening with curiosity as Chugga made his appearance. A Weezing? Poison-type moves had no effect on her precious Steel-types, but perhaps there was something more at play here. And she'd learned not to underestimate this particularly wily trainer, how adaptable he was. "Steelix, take it easy okay?" Jasmine murmured, ignoring the sharp look from her Pokémon. "Looks like Earthquake is out if it's floating... alright. Steelix, ready a Rock Slide." The words had barely left her mouth when Chugga preempted her, Joey's Weezing expanding in size with a deep breath.
Puffs of smoke had alarm bells going off in her head, Jasmine reaching a hand out in shock. She was late, far too late, to prevent the ensuing Flamethrower that blistered through the air towards Steelix. Narrowing her eyes, Steelix didn't flinch as the attack struck and enveloped her upper body in a torrent of fire. Behind her, Jasmine had thrown an arm up to protect against the searing heat, dropping it when all sound ceased. "Steelix?" she asked, heart thumping nervously in her chest as she stared at her partner. A moment passed before the great steel leviathan groaned and toppled to the ground, the tremor from her impact rattling the entire gym.

Slash lost -1 Happiness for fainting...Eyes closed, Jasmine swayed on her feet, as if fighting the desire to cry. "Oh Steelix," the girl breathed, recalling the fainted leviathan. Her instincts had been right that Chugga was more than he appeared, a simple Poison-type. To have taken out her Steelix in one attack, however... such power. "You are full of surprises, aren't you?" she said to Joey, a faint smile on her face as she lifted another Poké Ball in her hand. Her last Pokémon, likely to face a similar fate as the other two despite having been spared from Voltek's power. But she wasn't backing out now, and with a deft toss, Jasmine sent out the Magneton from before. "I wonder what you'll use next?"
Jasmine sends out her Magneton (Level 42) again!
