He frowned a bit seeing the second bug take the field. Bishop kind of hated to do this to Wade but the younger trainer kind of had to learn not to pick fights he couldn't win. Still, he rather admired the little guy's spirit. Being a trainer though he would never throw a fight or allow another trainer to win unless they earned it.
"Sorry Wade, I have places that I need to be so I have to end this quick...but I'll make it worth your while even if you lose."
His soft heart was going to get him into trouble someday but Bishop couldn't help himself. And what harm could come of helping a young trainer out? But first there was the small matter of finishing this fight!
"Come on back Clyde. You did great but its time to rest now. Your up Jolyne! Use your Ember attack."
The Torchic sprang from her pokeball, spoiling for a fight. This little one had a lot of spirit he thought. It was a good day when he had managed to trade for her. Now he watched and waited, anticipating that she would finish Wade's bug pokemon. Once that was settled he would give the younger boy a bit of advice, and probably a potion or two to get him started. He had the right idea of wanting to get some experience for his pokemon but really needed to stick to wild pokemon for the time being and not pick fights with fire type trainers.
(Ooc: Please let Clyde forget Mud Sport and learn Bulldoze. Thank you! )
Wade got a weird expression when Bishop apologized for going to end the battle quickly, the boy also had places to be, especially if Bishop wasn't going to hand over what he had gotten from the quagsire. "I do too, but I just can't end it like you can," he mumbled displeased as he saw Bishop's statement as a proof of the lack of options the bug catcher had. He clearly deflated when Bishop called out the fiery chick. He just watched defeated as Jolyne quickly ended the battle and left Kakuna smoking before its trainer quickly recalled it. "This is why I need that stuff," Wade said quietly, "everyone I meet has birds or fire types, and you even have both in one!"
Wade exhaled slowly and looked resigned at Bishop and then down at the stuff he had already collected. He shuffled over to the winning trainer and pulled a few banknotes and handed them with a forced smile. "Congratulations, you were great, here is your earnings," Wade said in a clearly rehearsed sentence and as soon as Bishop had accepted the money he turned around and began collect all his stuff, even taking time to put some in his pockets. He kept looking towards where the Quagsire had disappeared and looked like he was debating whether to try find the quagsire again or not.
Jolene won without a sweat and grows to [lvl 15]! She also gets +1 happiness
Bishop took no pleasure in beating Wade like that. He was still new enough as a trainer to understand the challenges of getting your pokemon strong enough to be competitive. It was especially hard when one only used one type, though apparently many trainers liked to. Though he was particularly fond of fire types Bishop wouldn't make that mistake and then get his butt kicked by some kid with a Squirttle or something.
"Don't take it too hard Wade," he said after a moments thought. "You've got some spirited little pokemon there. My advice would be to fight wild pokemon for awhile till those two finish evolving. Then you'll have a lot more options. Here, this might help."
He took two potions out of his pack and gave them to the younger boy as he paused to help him gather his things. If he would take the advice and use those then he should have fully evolved bugs in short order. Then his team ought to be pretty scary to the low level trainers that happened by this way.
With that done Bishop turned to head on his way. He had a couple of stops before facing Falkner and it seemed time to get to it.
*Finished. Please deduct two potions for his good deed for the day Thanks.*
