The large (relatively) whale was confident in its ability, despite the lashing it just got from Zian. Likely because it just curled up and started to rapidly roll directly at the plant with more of its impressive speed. For a fish (Mammal, I know) out of water, Wailmer certainly had no issues of being slowed down. That was, until its attack missed by just a hair's breadth and it took the powder to the face. It just continued to roll until it slams into one of the rocky outcroppings nearby, snoozing peacefully.
Wailmer | Level | 12 Health : 20/56 (35%) Status : Sleep Wailmer used Rollout! Wailmer missed!
Zian | Level | 14 Health : 36/42 (85%) Status : Normal Zian used Sleep Powder!
"Nice hit, Sisi" Dorthea cheered. "Madam, your turn." she ordered, and watched as the Beautifly took Zian's place. She noticed how Madam almost quivered, even though the Wailmer was snoozing peacefully. Admittedly, that rolling move the Wailmer had tried to pull at Zian worried Dorthea too. It didn't look like something Madam would like getting hit by, if the Wailmer woke early. Madam's fragile body against a Pokemon twice her size rolling around uncontrollable didn't sound like the best of plans. "Don't worry, Madam. I've got your back. See?" She held up a Pokeball ready for use at a moment's notice. Not a moment too soon. Whether Dorthea was smitten by Madam's nerves, the Wailmer moved in its sleep or was actually waking up, Dorthea caught movement in the corner of her eye, and threw the Pokeball in the Wailmer's direction on pure instinct.
Madam waited with withheld breath to see what would happen.
To say that the Wailmer was a heavy napper would be an understatement. Even as the commands went out and the pokemon switched, it didn't so much as budge from its slumber. And as the ball made contact, it didn't even shake once before giving the telltale 'ding' to confirm that it was caught.

Dorthea almost blushed when she realised she might have acted a little early on the slumbering Pokemon. All just because she had gotten nervous for her little Madam. However, there was no need to not exploit her show of protectiveness. "See, Madam. I got your back, should any trouble arise. You can trust me at least that much." She encouraged, and was rewarded with a glance of maybe appreciation from the Beautifly. Dorthea smiled and went to pick up her new catch. She didn't exactly knew what to do with the whale, but she would figure something out. Sometimes the surprise catches were the best additions to the team. She would surely find out later.
After pocketing the Pokeball, she gathered her rod again and set up anew. Dorthea was starting to realise that the variety in waiting time for bites was exactly why Aglaia had wanted her to learn fishing. It did test her patience to a great extend, and if it hadn't been exciting too to explore what she hooked, she might have given up by now. As it was Dorthea decided she could deal with a few more tries.
