As the Great Ball clicked shut Tyler let out a sigh of relief. He had a feeling he had gotten very lucky with that capture and was just releived that he had not wasted a Great Ball. " I think that capture was very lucky indeed. This weather did not help at all but this is the only place we can find the Pokemon I am after." He said as the young Riolu could feel.himself grow a little stronger. His claws even turned silver and grew as hard as metal as he learned Matal Claw from leveling up.
" Huh? What is going on? My claws feel so weird right now. They are sharper and turned to metal instead of skin and bone. I did not know that could even happen. " The young Riolu said as he tried to figure out what was happening. Tyler on the other hand knew exactly what had happened and smiled at the sight of the young Riolu learning a steel type move. Metal Claw would be a great help if they ever encountered a fairy type especially once the young Riolu evolved.
" There is nothing wrong as weird as it might feel, you have simply learned how to use Metal Claw and that move will be very useful if any fairy type tries to get in our way. It is not a very powerful steel type move but it will certainly help. " Tyler said as thr young Riolu continued to stare at its claws still wondering how it could learn such an odd move. Tyler on the other hand was still looking for the Pokemon he was after and did not want to waste too much time as the clock was not going to slow down for his benefit. The time situation was not dire yet but it was approaching quickly.
" Alright it is time to keep looking, I don't know how much time it is going to still take to find our target and standing around here dilly dallying is not going to help us out at all. " As he said that they could hear something coming from behind a parked car near the market. Tyler slowly crept around the car with his Pokemon and got ready to ambush whatever it was. " Ok my little Riolu friend and Chomper, I want you both ready just in case either of you will be more useful against whatever we run into. " Tyler whispered as he and his Pokemon waited to see which Pokemon was making the noise.
OOC: Fenrir should have grown to level 9 after that battle with +5 happiness. He learns Metal Claw. Updating that myself and waiting on another encounter.
Tyler could not hekp but to feel as though someone was playing a cruel, sick joke on him with all the Zigzagoon he had encountered lately. Though he could make a nice profit off of them by trading he did not have many Great Balls and had to save the rest for the one Pokemon he was after. As this one was a tiny bit stronger than the last one was he knew he could still benefit in some way by battling it and as Chomper was in dire need of as much training he could get Tyler decided that he would get the honor of facing the Zigzagoon.
The baby trex was quite excited for another battle as it had only been in a single battle since being revived and it was still trying to increase the strength of it's jaw so it could use it in battle. Zogzagoon made the perfect punching bag as Chomper was both a higher level and had the type advantage. " Chomper I know you should not habe any problems dealing with this little pest. As annoying as Zigzagoon have been lately this one is at least not too weak for you to benefit from fighting it. Show it no mercy. " He ordered as Chomper slowly ran towards it.
The young Riolu still thought it was hilarious how terrible the baby trex was at running though like last time Chomper's feet were still terrifying for how much damage they could cause. While heading for the Zigzagoon Chomper knocked over a fire hydrant causing water to spill everywhere soaking the poor Riolu and Tyler in the process. " Those feet Chomper have are a very deadly weapon, I am soaked to the bone right now. This rain was bad enough without a hydrant soaking as as well. " Unlike the young Riolu who was still somewhat calm Tyler was quite livid.
" Hey peanut brain, watch where you put those fat, ugly feet of yours. You got me and our Riolu friend soaked from your poor walking skills. Go Stomp on that Zigzagoon and make yourself useful. " Tyler ordered as the baby trex focused on it's target while trying no to anger Tyler further. Chomper had a long way to go before he would be able to go on a Team Rocket mission with Tyler as a display like this would likely get Tyler kicked out of Team Rocket or worse. At least in Tyler's mind the baby trex messing up in a private moment like this was far less embarrassing than it could have been.
The zigzagoon screamed and tried to run away from the big clumsy brute but failed miserably, the stomping knocked it out cold and it would limp around for weeks after that treatment and have a very healthy fear of mini t-rexes afterwards.
Chomper learned a bit but not how to control his big feet. He grows 1 level to [lvl 17]! He can learn Bite if he forgets another move. He also gains +1 happiness (+2)
As Chomper quickly dealt with the Zigzagoon he could feel his jaw get just strong enough to be able to finally use it in battle. To celebrate he took a huge bite out of the nearby car's tire as Tyler and the young Riolu watched in total amazement. Never did they think such a small Pokemon could cause so much damage. " I sure hope whoever owns that car has good insurance. No one around here would think a Tyrunt would go on a rampage and take a bite out of their tire. That Bite attack sure was impressive though and it takes advantage of Chomper's Strong Jaw ability."
Tyler was quite excited that the Tyrunt could take advantage of it's ability now. He had been hoping to teach the young trex a move that took advantage of it's jaw and Bite certainly fit the bill. The young Riolu now had two things to fear though thanks to his type only one of the attacks was still super dangerous. " Remind me not to make Chomper mad, those teeth are almost as terrifying as his feet. Speed is the one thing he still lacks right now but if he gets close I know he can cause massive damage now."
As the two looked on in amazement Chomper picked up the hydrant he had knocked over earlier and using his mouth he threw it through a window leading to the market shattering a pane of glass and making a lot of noise in the process. " The clean up crew is going to love us when the market opens back up. When we are done here we are going to have to hide somewhere again for a while as I know the police will look for us after destroying so much property. This hunt is slowly turning into a nightmare." Just as he thought the carnage was over Chomper picked up a nearby trash can and started to eat out of it before stomping it until it was flatter than a pancake.
" I do not think he is going to stop anytime soon. Chomper is like a one Pokemon army with his foot and mouth combo. His ability to destroy things is amazing." Tyler did not even know what to say as none of his other Pokemon showed up so much destructive potential at such a young age. All he knew was that the sooner he was able to find the Pokemon he was after and get out of here the better. Had it not been the middle of the night he would be very worried about the police showing up.
OOC: Chomper forgets Bide to learn Bite. Waiting on another encounter. Bicycle mode is still on.
All the pounding and raging was undoubtedly drawing in attention, and where there were two zigzagoon it shouldn't be a surprise to find a family of them. The next pokémon to scamper into the fray was of relation to the two Tyler had just defeated, and seeing the unconscious child ziggy didn't make it see the trainer and company as friendly.
A Linoone (LV 22) wants to protect the fallen zigzagoons!
Tyler was not quite sure what to think of his next encounter as Linoone were not the most common POkemon in the area but they were still an evolved form of a common Pokemon and he did not want to waste a lot of time dealing with it. Being such a high level however he knew it could make great target practice for Flint. The Charmeleon had not been in too many tough battles yet and he did not want the fiery salamander to get rusty. " Flint I want you to take care of this pest for me so that you can get some experience if nothing else. It should not be too hard for you but it will still keep you from slacking off." The fire type then stepped forward as it got ready to strike.
" Make quick work of this battle by using Flamethrower twice so we can get this over with. I do not want to waste all day on such a common Pokemon. Once we are done here I think we will have to give up ur search for now." Flint then got ready to fire off his attack trying to not get on Tyler's bad side.
OOC: Flint uses Flamethrower x2. Running Shoes are exhausted for the rest of this battle. Bicycle mode is on.
After Flint's quick victory Tyler was very tempted to move on to another area as the time to aquire the Meowth they were after has passed. Even though he no longer was after any particular Pokemon now that the Galar Festival was over he still needed to train his team and most of them were not ready for a harder area yet and he knew deep down it would be some time before he could head back to Goldenrod to get his next assignment from Team Rocket. As annoying as that fact was it meant he could have fun tormenting more Pokemon in the area to pass some time while also raising his weaker Pokemon.
" At least you were not totally worthless Flint, a shame that Linoone was too strong for one of my other Pokemon to deal with as they could have used the experience. At this rate I might have to put you in my PC soon so you won't get too powerful for the next gym." The salamander actually hoped her would for a while just so Tyler could not go after him for a while however he was relieved that the young man was more focused on training the rest of his team than making his live a living hell.
As Tyler started to search for another Pokemon to battle Chomper found a tire and started to chew on it while Fenrir tried to practice using his aura powers to no avail as he was still not powerful enough yet to take full advantage of them. Tyler was hardly impressed by the Riolu's efforts but tried to hide his disappointment the best he could knowing the effort would pay off once the young canine evolved. Chomper on the other hand had greater short term potential as he was getting better at using his powerful jaw with each passing moment.
" I really need to keep a better eye on Chomper before he eats half the town. When the time comes that may be a wonderful idea but for now we are not ready to cause that much destruction yet. On the other hand the more she destroys the less places there will be for Pokemon to hide. We just need to find weaker ones to battle so Fenrir and Chomper can continue to grow stronger and be of use to me." He then paused as he heard a noise off in the distance and got ready to order an attack once he knew what was coming. He wanted to waste as little time as he possibly could.
OOC: Waiting on an encounter in the streets of Cherrygrove.
