Goro looked around the area dumbly, taking her hand to help him up absently. Her words washed over him in a distracted haze as he tried to process what had just happened to him in the past half hour. This Kecleon had shown up, they'd scuffled a bit, he chased her up a tree once she smacked him with a shadow-- of all things-- a few times, and after they took a fall together, it seemed they were fine with one another. He shook his head in an exasperated manner, coming to terms with his situation.

The berry had helped, but he still felt a potent ache all over his body, and the Kecleon beside him seemed no worse for the wear, except for a telltale cough. She'd started talking again, and belatedly he started listening to hear, only managing to catch the word "surrounded," before casting a glance around himself. Indeed, there were several basic Pokemon approaching their little patch of uprising land and the tall tree beside them. They were basic, weak Pokemon that he'd vaguely recalled beating on several times before in order to establish the general area as his. An' they just seen me fall out of a tree chasin' this thing next ta me. Here fer revenge, I reckon.

He kept silent, however, save for the pained breaths he was taking to refill his lungs with air. He raised his fists doggedly, a determined expression forming on his face. "If yer from that goody-two-shoes guild in Grassveil, then I figure ya won't shy away from this kinda fight. Ya got my back on this, lady?"

The Croagunk's eyes scanned in front of him nervously, taking in the sight. Washing up slowly out of the muck, basic Pokemon started to slowly approach the injured fighters in their moment of weakness. He recognized a few of them, namely the two Poliwags waddling out of the muck, and the diminutive Lotad lurking further back in the water. There were a few he didn't recognize, as well-- a bright-blue frog-looking Pokemon (likely a water-type) and some strange lump of goo that resembled a Grimer, or something of the sort. Normally, they'd pose absolutely no threat to him, but the poison-fighting type was anything but healthy and the moment. He stole one last puzzled glance at his opponent turned ally, taking note of her rigid posture and sudden coughs, and hoped she hadn't actually gotten poisoned from him. He didn't have any berries or salves to offer her, even if she was the one who encroached on his territory, but it was only polite to offer.

Goro deigned not to grandstand and did all he knew to do. He ran forward, his fist glowing with a radiant light, preparing his most powerful technique, Drain Punch. It had the upside of alleviating damage, and after the hits he took and that particularly nasty fall, the last thing he wanted to do was go home and try to sleep this off. He noted Yooka's shadow flying past them into their ranks, and chose a different target-- the more bold Poliwag of the two, waddling forward quickly. His glowing fist lashed out in a straight punch, catching the small water-type in the forehead and sending it tumbling back to the group of advancing Pokemon.

If he had any luck, perhaps the Kecleon behind him would use the shadow to protect him, while he fought in the thick of it. Otherwise, he'd take more than a few hits, if the Pokemon decided to focus on him.

Goro wasn't smart in book terms, but he knew his way around a scrap. Even as he charged forward and fought the only way he knew how his eyes scanned the bank where the murky water met land, and kept his eyes peeled for any more Pokemon that wanted to join in. There were more than a few-- counting the one he'd knocked unconscious, he counted at least five, and likely more in the water waiting. He recognized a few of them as well; all of them were Pokemon that he'd driven out of the area when he first arrived at Cattail Marsh. And now that he was weak from a fight, they were closing in for revenge.

It was obvious, in hindsight. There was no way he could stop all of them if they spread out and rushed towards the Kecleon behind him, but even as he rushed forward to attack and Yooka's shadow surged past the Croagunk to attack Pokemon still in the water, they lingered around him, slowly surrounding him. He was almost surprised-- he didn't know feral Pokemon were smart enough to hold grudges like this. It's fine, really. Even when I'm broken and bleedin', I'll send the lot of ya back on home. This here's my stretch of th' land.

The Drain Punch he landed a moment earlier did him well; whereas before his chest and back were tight with pain from a rough landing out of the tree, after he struck the Poliwag they lightened up and he felt a refreshing sense of coolness wash over some of his aching body.

Belatedly, he noticed Yooka's shadow rush to his side, and only for a moment did he register the Froakie launching some kind of bubble projectiles at him. Then her shadow morphed into an unrefined looking wall, blocking the attack while an eye of sorts formed to glare at him. He heard her words from where she was hanging back and felt only a surge of annoyance before he had to turn and deal with the other Poliwag; the one he hadn't punched. It bounded forward angrily before letting loose a powerful torrent of water-- Water Gun!-- and he had only a second to think before he threw himself to the side, away from Yooka's shadow and the Froakie behind it, his fist glowing again in preparation of his Drain Punch attack. He landed cleanly with a roll, and before the Poliwag could attack again, he brought his fist up in a harsh uppercut, launching the Poliwag back towards the one he'd attacked first. The other one hadn't gotten back up; with any luck, the both of them would stay down.

As soon as he felt the feedback from his attack on the Poliwag, Goro whirled around to face the Froakie that attacked him earlier-- only to find it laying on the ground, presumably knocked out, courtesy of Yooka's own shadow. Goro's eyes scanned the improptu battlefield quickly, taking stock of the situation. One lotad was knocked out in the water, he'd knocked out both Poliwag, the Froakie was apparently just taken care of-- who was he missing?

He heard Yooka's warning from behind him before he made the realization for himself, and threw himself to the side as soon as he registered what she said. Sure enough, the lotad from before had a partner in crime, having just flew through the area he was in with a reckless Tackle attack. Before it could turn around and try again, Goro bounded forward boldly and swung a glowing fist, his Drain Punch attack launching the Lotad back towards the fallen Poliwag, who still had yet to move. Almost had me. Get back there with the rest of the trash.

They'd taken care of most of their ambushers, but there was still a few more that were curiously absent-- where were they now? Goro scanned the area in front of him and to the sides, expecting them to have focused on him, but apparently they'd changed tactics. He stole a glance behind him, seeing Yooka being held down by the two Goomie from earlier. Down, but not out. Her tail was wrapped around the fists of a Poliwhirl, of all things. It seemed one of his victims from before had it in him to evolve-- he was the leader of this ragtag little band of ferals. If they could put this one down, then that'd probably keep any more from appearing.

Resolutely, Goro turned on his heel and ran towards the struggling Kecleon and her attackers. His fist flickered with a white light, charging his Drain Punch once more. He'd used it on three of these ferals, by now, and he could feel the difference. Before their little scrap, Goro felt the pain from his fall harshly radiate all over, but now it was a dull ache that he could safely ignore. "Ditch the goos! I'll take care o' tha big ugly fella!"

Goro didn't think he'd ever been this angry.

He knew what it was like to be furious. Anger during a fight was one thing; it was a motivator and if you learned to use it, it could make you stronger. He was very familiar with that type of anger-- he lived with it every fight, every job, every day of his life. But this anger was of a righteous sort-- he wasn't mad at his opponent for fighting back, he was mad at these punks that had been stalking him, waiting for him to slip up. When he fought against the Kecleon, they were waiting to see if he'd lose, and they were going to gang up on him afterward if he did.

He recognized all of these Pokemon as ferals he'd beaten out of the area before, but it never occurred to him that they would band together this way and wait for an opportunity to get him while he was weak. It suggested a sense of cunning that he'd never found in feral Pokémon before, and despite himself, he felt a tendril of apprehension as he surged forward to meet the Poliwhirl that Yooka had previously bound. It was still kneeling on the ground after the Kecleon had thrown herself off of him, probably jarred by the strange fighting style she'd shown and still gaining its bearings. Goro didn't intend to let the water-type gather itself.

"Remember me, punk?!" The poison-fighting hybrid let loose a vicious snap kick at the Poliwhirl's midsection, prompting a startled cry and sending the Tadpole Pokémon back to the ground hard. Goro immediately leaped onto his opponent's round body, straddling the feral as he started whaling on the injured Pokémon. "Ya think you're hot shit after evolving once, do ya? Yer gonna need more than a few baby goos and your little Poliwag lackeys if ya wanna put me down!"

This, too, was another reason he fought. Part of his was his aptitude at battling and the thrill of the fight, but perhaps less virtuous was how Goro loved the feeling of power it gave him when he won like this. Hurting other Pokémon that genuinely deserved it (... sometimes) was a sensation unlike any other. The Poliwhirl put up a meager, token resistance that Goro easily bat aside with furious fists. After dispatching the weaker ferals with so many Drain Punches, the Croagunk was feeling refreshed and eager to put this conflict to bed. He lost himself in the rhythm of punches, rejoicing in the dull thwaks resounding through the air as his poisonous fists smacked against the Poliwhirl's body.

"Aah... haa... After t'day, I needed that." His opponent had long since gone limp with unconsciousness, but Goro still stayed straddled on its round body, his chest heaving with palpable physical exhaustion. Though his breathing was heavy and his torso was bent over on himself, the Croagunk visibly weary, the tension in his shoulders had long since faded and the irritated expression he wore before fighting was long since gone. Goro turned his head side to side, taking in the battlefield and all the unconscious Pokémon scattered about, pausing when he caught sight of Yooka. His eyes crinkled and a sly, teasing smile flittered about his face before he croaked loudly.

The Croagunk rose off his opponent, childishly kicking the unconscious body to the side as he made his way towards his temporary ally. "Yer still alive, over here? Or did the big bad goos suck all tha life outta ya?"

"Oh. Oh. Poison, huh. Well." Normally, the Croagunk would carry a healthy supply of Pecha Berries, in case he'd accidentally poisoned someone with his Poison Touch ability... but, well, he'd only been on his own for a short time out here. He hadn't actually had the chance to stock up yet. Goro felt an unfamiliar thread of guilt run through him at the thought that he was probably the one who poisoned her-- probably before they got ambushed. "Uh... A Pecha Berry'll fix ya right up, but... I ain't got none on me, so... yeah, yer gonna have to bear it. Poison'll fade after a bit of time, I reckon."

And there was a scary thought. Apparently, she'd been fighting while poisoned the whole time. Suddenly, Goro didn't want to face this Pokémon again if he didn't have to. He shifted uneasily, aware that it was his fault she was in so much distress. The wise thing to do here was to help her recover, so as to not attract her ire or revenge whenever she eventually recovered. She was plenty skilled... not as much as him, but she more than made up for that with her strategy and quick thinking. Something he lacked horribly. Uncomfortably, he croaked, clearing his throat before speaking again. Damn this lizard for making him do the right thing here, and damn himself for going through with it. "I hear it hurts plenty bad. You kin'-- uh, you 'kin stay a while. I got a shack aroun' the bend, with a straw bed and blankets n' everythin', if ya want a place to ride it out. Ferals stay away from my place-- I defend my stretch of th' swamp pretty vicious, so..."

He trailed off uncertainly, peering at the Kecleon with a trace of concern. Could she even walk? He'd be damned if he had to carry the thing back to his hovel.
