Goro's lip curled in disgust and confusion. This weird fighting lizard strides into his territory, makes a nuisance of itself, mocks him and baits him into attacking. Then after one little skirmish, it starts talking about how skilled he is and how she's worse than him. But it's oh so nobly willing to go on and take the punishment, isn't it? Goro's fists clenched hard, his frustration turning into disdain. What a crock-show. Act nobly when ya do noble things, ya freak lizard, He wanted to say. Not when you're messin' around other peoples' good homes.

He was still confused by the figure in front of him. Most Pokemon he could peg on how they looked; Croagunks had long, lean arms and poisonous fingers: they were fighters and poisoners. Abras were soft and floated in the air when they wanted to move, and when they fought they shot psychic blasts around, clear psychic-types. Even Pokemon who could fight well at all distances, like Houndour had traits that said so. They had fiery breath and sharp claws and teeth, and strong hind muscles.

But this thing was... confusing. It didn't look very strong, but it just hip-checked him. He had to know more about it.

"Tch. Ya figured all that out after we fell on top o' eachother, did ya?" Goro raised himself to both feet and started strafing to the side, slowly circling the Kecleon all over again. His left and right fists raised quietly in front of his face and torso respectively, tightening and loosening in period intervals, ready to attack or defend if necessary. His eyes narrowed dangerously. "What're ya doin' in my territory in tha' first place, huh? And who are you?"

Goro's eyes only got more and more unfocused as Yooka kept talking. Dimly, he felt a sense of surprise that she was able to guess that he was an ex-mercenary, but as she explained herself and what she was doing here, he felt less and less trepidation about her. Oh. She's another one o' them Explorers, chasing after mysteries and thrills. Ugh. He was more than aware of how she started circling around him, and he her, but for the life of him he couldn't seem to care about the drivel she was spouting about a Pokemon called Shaymin, and some outlaws and hostages and whatever. Honestly, all he wanted to know is why she was here specifically, and what kind of Pokemon she was. More importantly, any weaknesses she might let slip.

His expression soured even further when she started talking about him.

Quote :
"Your the first pokemon I have ever met that 'lives' in a dungeon that isn't a complete feral. You must be feeling the dungeon's effects on you by now? How long have you-- umm... nevermind, that's something I shouldn't know."

Indignantly, he drew backward and felt another wave of anger wash over him. Me? Feral? From a distance, maybe that seemed true enough... He didn't do much anymore besides forage for food, watch over his territory, and run bouts of his old training regimen. He could see it. But, what was honestly the difference between a feral Pokemon and a normal one? Some of the strongest Pokemon he'd fought were feral, and some of them knew how to fight smart. He didn't expect her accusation to bother him, but for some reason it did.

"Look. I don't care about your mission or your job, and I don't care about no Shaymin or his hostages or anythin' like that." Goro paused for a moment, studying his opponent in detail, taking in her figure and fighting stance. "I'm still gonna knock yer lights out for treadin' where you ought not to. Hopefully when ya wake up tomorrow you'll know the courtesy of not stompin' in other peoples' backyard."

Goro didn't care much for mid-fight banter. At all. Most of the time it was braggarts trying to intimidate people way stronger than them, and the rest of the time it was kids trying to sound cool while they were fighting. And both were annoying. But he did feel a sense of foreboding when the strange Pokemon in front of him announced she was done messing around. After all, she was at least decently skilled when they scuffled a moment ago, so her getting serious meant he might be in trouble here.

And her odd jab at the end didn't sit well with him. Foreshadowing... what does that even mean? He started forward when she suddenly jumped up the tree like-- like some sort of monkey Pokemon, what was this lizard thing?!-- but knew, immediately, that he wouldn't follow her up there. She had to be confident to surge up the tree that quickly, and he wasn't keen on getting smacked out of a tree and onto the ground. He felt a dull anger that she was running so quickly, but he knew it was foolish to follow her.

Instead, he turned his head this way and that, looking for something to use to get her back down on the ground, where he was more comfortable. Ugh, just muck and grass. Nothing I can throw. Goro let himself be distracted for only a moment, looking for a tool to use, when suddenly a ghastly presence made itself known behind him. He turned to meet it quickly, letting loose vicious fists, but they sailed right through it-- a shadow? I don't understa-- and it slammed into him with a considerable force, sending him flat on his behind.

"Augh... ow." The pain dulled quickly enough, but it was still a surprising attack. He rose from the ground after a moment in a daze, shaking the pain from himself visibly, looking quite cross when he stood. I knew it. No way this thing fought with fists. Instead... shadows. It didn't hurt too bad. But it was fast.

Goro turned to the tree angrily, striding towards it. He wasn't confident fighting so far up, as the fall down would hurt, but she was asking to get hurt. Badly. But the Croagunk still took a moment to observe the tree, trying to get a sense of where all the branches were before he would leap up to them. I'm coming for ya. Freaky lizard.

Goro scowled hatefully up at the tree for a moment, hating the fact that he was fighting on her terms. In a simple world, they'd have just had it out right where they met and that would've been that. But instead, he had to discipline this Kecleon, with its freaky shadows and hit and run tactics. He was deliberately not putting thought into what the shadow attack really was; probably some kind of dark or ghost move. If it was a psychic attack, he'd have been floored by it. But it was strong enough that it could've been a ghost move, or maybe it was a really strong dark-type attack that he resisted. He wasn't sure, and hated that fact for a moment. Fleetingly, he considered simply punching the tree but gave the thought up as quick as it came. Not that strong. Yet. Someday.

But when Goro saw another shadow writhing across the ground, his poison sacs inflated and he croaked angrily. She knows I'm here! Can she see me? He could have taken another hit, but there wasn't a point. He hoped to himself she hadn't had the time to set up a trap, before finally climbing the tree to avoid the shadow. In two leaps he was able to land on the first branch, safe from the shadow on the ground. Goro tested his footing cautiously, slowly shuffling across the branch. Seems steady enough. A little wobbly.

Cautiously, Goro ascended the tree branches, searching for the pale green lizard he'd fought with earlier, but to his frustration, he couldn't seem to spot her. And she hadn't had the time to flee; he would've seen or heard her abandon the tree. Where are you? He switched tactics to observing the tree itself and the ground below him. If he couldn't find her, then he'd wait for the shadow.

And there you are. Predictably, the third shadow came surging towards him from above, traveling down the length of the tree. He braced himself for impact, watching the impending shadow nervously. Gotta take it. Then follow it back if it doesn't just disappear.

"Nngh!" Less surprising than last time, Goro took this hit much better, and managed to stay on both feet, barely swaying under the weight of the blow. And quick as a snake, when the shadow raced backwards, Goro was hot on its tail, only pausing cautiously between leaping from branch to branch in pursuit. Looking up, he noticed the shadow return to a space of... nothing. There was nothing there, it just vanished, under some invisible weight. There were a few leaves scattered around a space where nothing sat, but-- wait, were those markings? In the air?

"Tch. I 'kin see you!" Goro's fist glowed brightly with white energy, the attack move Drain Punch forming in his right hand. He blurred into action, stepping forward hard, his shoulders and torso turning quickly, putting his body weight into a hard right hook aimed the area he figured Yooka's head to be. He was confused as to why she didn't move or drop her camouflage even.

She could dodge, of course, if she was paying attention to him.

To say his oppononet's actions confused him was an understatement. When he found her she just sat there, those strange markings on its body before present in the invisible air. Had to be some kinda camouflage, maybe she had to sit still to do it. But did she think him so stupid that he wouldn't notice anything?! He chased weird shadow attack all the way up the tree and it just waited for him. Maybe it took something out of her, and she was immobile. Maybe she couldn't use the shadow and the camoflauge trick at the same time and still move, or maybe she just didn't see him coming. Either way, he knew she was capable enough, from their scuffle on the ground moments earlier.

Don't make no sense, either way.

Goro's brow furrowed confusingly as his punch collided with something much harder than a cheek or jaw. Decent feedback, but not the cleanest punch, he thought, a bit of health returning to him. He stared intensely at the seemingly empty area in front of him, and the moving markings floating in the air. It could move at the same time as it was camouflaged, then. But then why did it just watch him bound forward and attack it? Did her shadow attack render her still for a moment, or was she simply not focused on the fight at hand? A surge of indignation welled up in him at that thought. If she wasn't taking this seriously-- if she wasn't taking him seriously, then Goro might get really angry.

Ironically, he was too engrossed in this own thoughts to react when an invisible hand seized his forearm harshly, and he was caught on flat feet, totally surprised when something jerked him hard to the side, and his feet caught against each other clumsily. Before he knew it, he was swung off the side of the branch, toppling off the tree dangerously. Darn it, I knew I'd get chucked off this tree!

But the invisible Pokemon still had a hard grip on his arm, and instead of falling down to a lower branch or even a harsh landing on the ground, his fall stopped abruptly in the middle of the air. But he was too far gone for her to have reached, even if she bent over the branch. He stared confused up into the air for a moment-- to his eyes, it appeared he was just simply floating, if not for the powerful grip on his wrist-- until suddenly, pale-green skin faded out of invisibility, and the Pokemon from before was hanging dangerously off the tree, his arm in her hand.

Oh. Oh. It made sense, now-- he'd knocked her off the tree and she simply caught him, trying to take him down with her. But she'd changed her mind, or even did it unthinkingly, catching onto a different branch with her tail.

His face crumpled sourly at her words, letting out a croak of embarrassed resentment. "I didn't figure' ya'd throw us off the tree, ya crazy lizard! Now, look whatcha did!" His legs kicked at empty air, trying desperately to find ground beneath him. But the ground was too far below for him to land safely, and he'd have to swing off of her to find another branch. And that would probably throw her off the branch she had held on with her tail if she even let go of his wrist.

"Whaddya think yer doin'-" Goro's shout was cut off, turning into a very alarmed croak when Yooka suddenly let go of the branch she was holding on-- the branch that was supporting them both, is she crazy-- and tried to grab another one below them. She either fell too fast, rotated too quickly or their combined weight was just simply too much for it to handle, because the branch snapped almost immediately as she latched onto it. She'd used an impressive aerial maneuver to position herself below him to reach the branch before he could, and now she was falling below him. Goro couldn't do anything but fall just as helplessly as she did, watching as she hit the ground hard beneath her.

Abruptly aware that he was about to land right on top of her, causing serious injury if the Kecleon wasn't already seriously hurt, he flailed his arms wildly and tried to roll mid-air, slightly moving to the left. He wasn't an aerial fighter by any means, and it showed. Still, he managed to move slightly, and instead of landing on top of the Kecleon who showed up a bit of mercy by not letting him fall, he landed directly next to her, their shoulders jostling roughly when he came down hard.

He'd thought to land safely somehow, turn over midair and use his limbs to cushion his fall, but all thoughts stopped abruptly when his back slammed into the ground, air being driven from his suddenly empty lungs. The back of his head hit the dirt floor hard, his vision suddenly flickering worryingly.

Goro gasped for breath but made no noise and nothing seemed to come. Stars started to spot around his vision, close to the edges. He lay there flailing weakly, trying desperately to fill his lungs with air, but he had no suction and lay there helplessly. A weak,  fleeting thought occurred to him-- am I about to die?-- and his chest tightened painfully. He was surprisingly worried about the Kecleon he landed next to, not for her health or well-being, but if she had landed better than him, or recovered quicker than he did, then he'd be entirely at her mercy. And he didn't show her much of that, when they were up in the tree.

For a few good moments, it was all he could do to close his eyes and cope with the pain flowing through him and absence of air in his lungs. His chest tightened painfully when he tried to inhale a few moments ago, and his vision was blurry and full of stars. It was alleviating slowly, but the wait and pain was agonizing. He felt something that was shaped suspiciously like a berry enter his mouth, and he reflexively chewed and swallowed without thought. Almost immediately, he felt the pain start to subside and a surge of new energy burst through him.

He croaked irritatingly when he felt a sharp slap on his knees. He suddenly rose upwards in a sitting position, inhaling without care or thought, and took in the sight of the Kecleon next to him. She was scanning the horizon worryingly, her bag opened thoughtfully and she looked to be looking for an attacker. But I'm right here. An' she gave me the berry. What's she lookin' for? He thought to ask her, but decided against it in case she was angry for him and wanted to fight some more.
