First topic message reminder :

energy:
 

Isolation still seemed like a far-off dream for him.

Goro the Croagunk normally spent his days battling wild Pokémon in his home Dungeon, Cattail Marsh, and his evenings taking in the beautiful scenery provided by the Firefly Pokémon that were native there. Unfortunately, it seemed most of Rainfront Town had the same idea-- it seemed like he was chasing out more and more tourists every evening he spent at home, as citizens from both Grassveil and Rainfront swarmed the Marshlands to observe the sights. He couldn't rest easy knowing that there were visitors just a few stone's throws away. The Croagunk wasn't sure if it was the summer season that made the humid, wet Marsh so appealing, or if it was simply easier to reach for the nearby populace.

Either way, his home was overrun with tourists and Goro was distinctly chafed with the whole situation. It stood to reason he needed a place to unwind; he'd heard stories about the Fallen Leaf Copse, the small forest island nestled on the lake to the west of Grassveil. The scenery was supposed to be to die for; the eternal autumn colors reflecting off the surrounding lake waters creating a gorgeous visage. Goro wasn't normally one for sightseeing this way, but witnessing the similar view at Cattail Marsh seemed to have sparked a passing interest in sightseeing for the normally hermit-like Croagunk.

At times like these, all he wanted was some peace and quiet. The Copse seemed like a perfect place to lay low for a while-- he'd go for a stroll, maybe train against some feral Pokémon home to the Dungeon. Goro strode forward on the cobblestone trail, the lake's island in clear sight. He could make out a path of stepping stones in the distance-- it stood to reason that there was a path for Pokémon unable to swim.

Well. Apparently, it's got a friend. Goro took in the pair of Pokémon in front of him with a sense of disdain, watching as the purple lizard hurriedly wrapped some sort of scarf around the Sandshrew's head wounds, both of their worries and tension palpable in the air. If the little shrew was weak enough to get ambushed and torn up by a Sentret, of all things, why on earth had it been left on its own? For that matter, why on earth did his guardian bring it into the dungeon in the first place? He repressed a scoff, crossing his arms defensively while he watched the two interact. He raised an eyebrow when the lizard Pokémon turned to him started blabbering.

"Forget it-- don't worry about thanks. Ya oughta keep yer kid there safe, instead, next time ya decide to drag 'em into a dungeon crawlin' with ferals." He hadn't the time or energy to spend on these fools; he was here for a challenge, not to offer platitudes and greetings to a couple of weaklings in over their heads. His attention was largely on the Sandshrew, watching as it tugged on the Kecleon's arm needily, something obviously bothering it. Even after it failed to protect him. "Instead of runnin' off and doin' whatever it is that ya were up to."

Then he felt it. The dirt on the ground shook subtly, bouncing around his feet, sending minor tremors up his legs and through his body. Was it some sort of... minor earthquake? No, no such thing existed-- perhaps a low-power Magnitude, but in that case, he'd be feeling pain at the super-effective attack. No, these were... footsteps. Something was approaching, something heavy and powerful. The Sandshrew was obviously sensitive to the sensation, being a ground-type. He stared, puzzled at the shrew, turning his gaze in the direction he was pointing, before jerking in comprehension, the Croagunk's jaw dropping in horrified realization.

"Ursaring," he whispered in shock. He'd had the fleeting thought, before, that perhaps the Teddiursa that attacked him had a mother bear lurking close by. It would explain the confident and clumsy way it attacked, sure of its safety and security with its protector so close by. He had the thought, but in that case, why didn't the mother bear rush to her cub's safety? Granted, the Teddirusa didn't exactly last long, and it hadn't been but a few minutes since he defeated it. Goro's fists clenched in anger, a surge of indignant fury running through him at the absurdity of the situation he was in. He'd come here to relax-- and now he'd just rescued a baby shrew, and was about to tangle with an Ursaring, of all things. "Shut up! I think an Ursaring is comin'. It's gonna be real angry-- ya might wanna git on out of here, like, now."

The crougunk was rude but it held no ill will. Something about him felt similar. She wanted to question that but she felt the tugging of the sandshrew. The feral part of Yigo was probably activating as he was pointing into nothing... or so she thought. She saw it before she felt it. The Crougunk gave a warning to leave. With Yigo in this condition, she contemplated it, but then she remembered the Tyrantrum's words. Yooka clenched her fists. Run and be soft like usual or stand around and protect the sandshrew like its a mission or a lesson.

Yooka started to get a headache and to make it worse images of what happened during the pricklemist mission ran through her head. She dipped her head and raised her fists slightly above her head. "Gah! I can't run--" She lowered her fists and looked at them as she opened them. "--If I run, I'll just stay weak." She took a stand between Yigo and the ursaring that was still a few meters away. The same stand she took to Goro way back. "Also, hello Goro, it's been awhile. Guess you haven't changed. I'm surprised it took me this long to remember that attitude. What brings you here?"

The ursaring entered their little clearing and Yooka gave it no time to evaluate them, if it hasn't already done so. She had circled it and went for a short hook to the lower back. She came in low so as to avoid it's swinging arms. Landing the hit was easy, forgetting to follow it up came next. She just stared at the ursaring while it took a few steps forward from her power-up punch(+1) before it faced her and became enraged. Yooka took to another stance, waiting for what will happen next.

It was there. A titanic fur-covered beast with claws as sharp as his mothers and eyes devoided of anything but rage. It should have been obvious that they had to run: the creature was definitely aggressive and enraged and they had an open path behind. If the Croagunk decided to cover their escape they´d have enough time to leave. But Yooka refused to leave. In her words, though, he found his own reflection. Of course, running away was the sensible option; however, if he had decided to follow Yooka on her adventures was to become stronger, to finally be eligible to part of Grassveil. As he was now... he couldn´t even join the Guild. Worst of all, those words came from Yooka, the one that probably defeated the Sentret that would have probably killed him. If she was weak... what was he?

Yigo got on his two feet, witnessing the battle between the beast and Yooka. The open wound of his left leg him waver but the sight of Yooka fighting made his resolution stronger. The Sandshrew scrapped off the surface of his back to gather the little sand he had left from Scorchfall and tossed it towards the big beast before it got closer to the explorer. He wasn´t weak! He could also defend his friends! The Ursaring got sand in its eyes, making it roar in rage. While it was distracted roaring, Yigo limped towards Yooka´s side, carefully finding balance on his three legs. Between his bandages, he tried to compose the words "I´ll be strong like you". His plan was simple, once the beast got distracted by either Yooka´s or the Croagunk´s attack, he´ll open a weak point in between his fur with his crush claw.

On one hand, Goro wanted to run. Holy shit, did he want to run. An Ursaring was a totally different beast, a giant of fur, muscle, claws, and too much rage to see straight. Before, he'd figured that such a beat would probably instantly overpower him, but if he could find a way to turn its anger against it... no, he scrapped the thought as quickly as it came. Any kind of plan like that would need time to devise, and he didn't have any time to offer. Already, the strange lizard Pokémon in front of him was charging forward, circling the large Normal-type, brandishing a Fighting-type move skillfully. The Sandshrew charged right after her, and for a moment, Goro felt a thread of shame for hesitating. No, he had the type-advantage and two courageous allies, not to mention his own considerable strength and skill. If they played their cards right, they could walk away alive today.

On the other hand, this was exactly what he came here for. If he wanted anything out of this experience, in the Fallen Leaf Copse, it was a change of a pace and a challenge. And it didn't get much more challenging than this - the presence of allies certainly helped matters, as well. He watched as Yooka circled the beast, striking it with a low hook in its back, the Ursaring turning away from him and Yigo to deal with the new threat--

But just as its attention was off him, the Sandshrew from before had a surge of courage, charging forward with brandished claws, tearing into the beast's lower back, actually managing to rip off a patch of fur before a strong twitch threw the shrew Pokémon off. It wasn't a particularly damaging assault, but it clearly opened up an opportunity a more powerful attack to do something much more-- and that was his cue. The Croagunk's fist took an a dull, glowing hue, the trademark signature of his Drain Punch attack, before Goro stepped foward hard right behind the Ursaring, slamming a right straight into its lower back, where Yigo's claw struck a moment before. He felt the feedback from the blow, an incredible tension surging down his arm as the beast actually stumbled forward -- an Ursaring, actually stumbled forward from his attack -- before turning right back to deal with him. Goro caught only a glimpse of furious, beady eyes, bristling fur, and terrifyingly sharp claws before he threw himself out of the way of a slash attack, rolling a distance away from the Ursaring.

The large bear Pokémon, for its part, managed to realize the situation it was in, suddenly backing away from the three allied Pokémon just enough for all of them to be in its vision. It was smart enough to realize that they were all working together - and that made it dangerous. It seemed resolute enough, snarling as it lingered in front of them, snarling and brandishing its claws threateningly. A sudden, thrilled grin split Goro's face as he took in the beast in front of him, waiting for it to make a move. Strategy wasn't his strong suit-- if the lizard or the shrew had a plan, it would have been wise for them to shout it quickly, as the Croagunk's blood was boiling. Already, he was twitching forward, eager for another round against the powerful feral.

The events that came were quicker than she expected. Not only was she surprised that Yigo actually tried to attack when she had distracted the beast, but that beast had even tanked goro's fighting type move aswell as her's. Maybe this wasn't such a good idea. However, before she could decide on what to do next the beast roared. Not the usual beasty roar but an actual roar. Yooka covered her ears and thankfully she wasnt close to it or she probably would have been knocked back.

When it ended she did what she did last time. except one minor flaw. The ursaring knew what Yooka was doing. and instead of swinging its arms it scooped the ground, and her, into the air. Yooka's mind went blank from fear but her body reacted instinctively by grabbing the ursaring's arm with hers in a bind(+2). The impact hurt but she kept up her hold through the full motion. The ursaring was unhindered by her added weight but she didn't stop there.

At the peak of the arc she let go, gaining a foot or two more into the air before coming straight down. She did the only she could think of doing really. Matter aswell get a punch in, but her mind was too hasty. Her fist didnt form the move correctly; She punched the ursaring normally. It still made a rather large impact as it was a normal attack(+2). She landed on all fours and started moving again. Away from the ursaring as its claws just kept swinging. She did not want to be next to the beast.

ending type ¦ fighting:
 
(+2) = attack up +2

He did it. Yigo managed to take a dent on the beast, opening a weak point for his companions to strike effectively. The Croagunk needed no explanation to his actions for it had launched a punch directly onto the skinned point at the feral´s back. However, right after the Crush Claw connected, Yigo tried to unconsciously use his damaged limb, making him fall to the ground in pain. Even after that act of bravery and the teamwork displayed, the monster continued rampaging the area, roaring aloud to demonstrate that it still had enough strength to take on all of them. Nevertheless, the feral was acting without any sense or strategy, blinded by bloodlust and rage. Moreover, Yooka knew that the big ferals weren´t usually aggressive. Something was not right about their encounter, something made the creature mad.

Yigo held to his damaged limb. The injury was getting worse. Without much thought, Yigo untied the piece of cloth he had on his head and tied it around his damaged leg instead while letting the gold coloured seed fall on his hand. "Y-Yooka..." Yigo was visibly moved by the Kecleon´s gesture, having wet eyes directed at her even though one of them was twitchy and blinky. Unfortunately, those eyes happen to catch Yooka being struck by one of the feral´s strikes, Yigo´s heart skipping a beat. He moaned as he was the one being hit. Yigo spent seconds without doing nothing, without breathing until the Kecleon, after enduring the attack, desperately tried to avoid the furious onslaught of the feral. Yigo looked at his hands, at the scarf he was given. The explorer couldn´t handle it all by herself. She needed help, she needed him. Wrapping the wound and slipping in between the Revival Seed, Yigo moved in to engage. He had no plan, he had no idea of what to do to take the beast down but Yooka needed him once again. What happened with the Seviper wouldn´t happen again.

His hands acted on their own. Before he realised it, a fistful of sand was ready to blind the beast again. The explorer showed off her acrobatics, using the Ursaring´s own moves to propel her high into the air, finishing the move with a punch before retreating.

That was his turn. The Ursaring still continued slashing nothing but air in panic, unable to keep everyone at bay at the same time. The Sandshrew used his precious sand well, aiming for the eyes and, once more, forcing the feral to get it off its eyes. He had done a good work, leaving Yooka enough space to withdraw and get prepared for another strike yet his claws had a strange need to follow the momentum.

Little thought was put into the Sandshrew's next attack, Yigo´s moves being actually guided by instinct rather that his own agency. He limped into range and stood on his two feet - even though it was painful - and raised both of his claws. They descended at the same time right in the middle of the beast´s circle pattern, leaving a cross-shaped weak point at an easily targetable spot. The feral twitched in pain and roared, signalling Yigo´s out before more claws got into him. However, the Ursaring seemed to have other plans for it had decided not to slash the Sandshrew without seeing him. The feral could smell Yigo, the scent of blood being strong enough to track his position without needing to clear his eyes. The beast jumped but not to avoid an incoming attack. The jump was the attack or, maybe, the landing was. Yigo could see it, being able to predict what was coming but, unable to dodge with a damaged limb, nor minimise the impact by curling in, he just waited open-mouthed, screams wanting to come out of it, as he observed his place in the fight coming to an end. Extending the limbs at the peak of the jump, the feral crushed the Sandshrew under the weight of its body with a Body Slam.

Just one of them was able to stand up to resume the fight.

Goro liked to think he was a good fighter. After all, he'd grown up doing it, being trained by his parents and learning how to be a mercenary, learning the right moves and techniques, how to fight and defend, so on and so forth. As a battler, he was straight-forward and simple. His tactics never seemed to go beyond charging forward and attacking, as he'd never needed to do anything else. What he had worked out for him.

But what he saw before boggled his mind. The Ursaring had let out a mighty roar after Goro's Drain Punch struck it in the back, and he'd thrown himself out the way of a slash attack just to rise and witness the Kecleon that spoke to him briefly before charging in despite the obvious danger. He stood shock still and watched as the great bear Pokémon scooped her right up, the Kecleon clinging to its mighty paw before letting go at the arc of its swing, falling down on the Ursaring with a clean punch before making a clean getaway, landing on all fours and rolling out of the rampaging beast's way.

That alone was enough to inspire some awe in him, but what happened next was painful to witness. The Sandshrew that was attacked and injured earlier squared right up and launched a spray of sand at their enemy, blinding it before jumping in and letting loose its claws in a cross-slash on its midriff. It was an act of equal amounts courage and foolishness, as while the Sandshrew had hindered the beast and struck a sound blow, he was entirely open to the beast's counterattack. Goro watched in morbid fascination as the Ursaring took to the air before slamming down harshly on the much smaller Pokémon, a powerful Body Slam putting the shrew out of commission entirely.

That's gotta hurt. It was a very brave thing the kid did, but perhaps a little too reckless. He'd have served the fight better by sticking back and launching more sand attacks at the beast, blinding it while he and the Kecleon danced around it and struck it with super-effective attacks. Still, what was done, was done. Priority number one was to save the kid; he was injured before the mighty counter-attack, and there was no telling what kind of damage he sustained after a Body Slam from such a large and powerful Pokémon. In one smooth motion, Goro ducked under a random slash from the Ursaring's claws before rolling right over Yigo, wrapping his arms around the diminutive shrew and booking it out of the Ursaring's range. The Ground-type was significantly heavier than he thought, and he knew immediately that he couldn't sustain running while carrying the injured kid.

Still, it was better to try and be pleasantly surprised than to lay still and wait for defeat. The Ursaring was half-blind and raging, claws slashing one way to the next, unable to see with the sand in its eyes. The shrew in his arms was trailing blood enough for them to be tracked by the bear Pokémon, but perhaps it had sustained enough damage that it'd think twice about giving chase. Either way, it was obvious that if they kept fighting, the Sandshrew was only going to be placed in more danger. He didn't know what the relationship was like between the lizard and the shrew, but if she was in any way responsible for him, she'd messed up. Big time.

Irritably, the Croagunk snapped at the Kecleon off to the side. "Oi! Yer boy's out of it! I ain't got nothin' to patch 'em up with, so it's on you to take care of him!" He set Yigo's body down carefully at the base of a tree a few yards away from the rampaging Ursaring. With the shrew laid down off to the side, Goro turned to face the beast once again. There was no chance of him stopping the Ursaring if it decided to charge; he needed to distract it, or get it away from the injured shrew. If Yooka elected to help Yigo, she'd have a clear path to the Sandshrew. However, that would leave the Ursaring unaccounted for, and he'd have to deal with the beast while she got Yigo to safety.  Either way, two things were clear; Yigo needed help, and the Ursaring had to be escaped or dealt with.

Surprisingly the Ursaring missed every swing of it's arms as she was making her temporary retreat. When it was obvious she was far enough, she turned around to catch a glimpse of Yigo getting crushed by the Ursaring. At first she was surprised and started to run back in the fray but she noticed a few things and did some others.

First things to note, her skin color remained the same Purple hue, however, it started to painfully crawl... almost a burning sensation. The coloring stuff or whatever that pokemon used must be conflicting with her Pigmented skin. If she didn't have the artificially changed color she would have returned to her normal coloring of Green, if for only a few seconds. Secondly, She remembered the revival seed she gave Yigo so he would/should be fine, temporarily, as the Ursaring was not taken care of still and Yooka was not in the mood to run away. She also took this time to recover the heavy blow she took, she's slightly surprised she was able to have taken such a hit. Thirdly, That blow was fighting type. That further surprises her as to how she was able to take it as she did. Was she actually stronger or was the Ursa weaker than she first thought... or was it she has alot of endurance but physically weak. She'll get back to this when the time is less chaotic. Maybe Goro himself could explain.

Lastly, said Goro did another feat worth mentioning, however what he said towards her just pushed her in the wrong direction and made her feel hesitant to ask. After he weaved in the blind Ursa's practically flailing attacks to save the Sandshrew he... well now that she thinks about it, his attitude was pretty much always like that... but why now and why her? She looked at the Ursa and growled to herself. She then smirked and told him off undisturbed by the fact Yigo was crushed and in need, "Already taken care of and also thanks for the assist, I owe ya one."

This time she ran towards the Ursaring with no anger, all the determination, and two glowing fists. She watched the Ursaring carefully as she approached. With its hindered sight she knew its attacks would be much more random but they would also be much more erratic and unfocused. This allowed her to give off two free punches(+2, +3) and where else than the injury Yigo left in the Ursa's ring-like pattern. She would of gotten off three but a swing from the Ursa caused her to back off as it sent her off into a bush. Luckily those two blows caused the Ursa to kneel, that was enough from her. She was satisfied with the conditions. She got up spiked with adrenaline and decided to head to Yigo. However, she felt a sudden pressure in her chest. The feeling was back... she hated this feeling. What was it? She took care of the Ursaring to protect the group... but why did she feel this way? It felt... wrong/unsatisfing but it also felt great and enjoyable. She only frowned and looked at her hands as she was making her way back. Did she enjoy beating the Ursa?!

((ooc: wether the Ursaring is beat or not... i'll leave it to you two, but it definitely is out of it. Defense scarf gives +8 defense... early on that is a godsend and I don't know how to explain lvl difference in-character. I go by base stats and use the levels as the 'power' difference but I don't know how that can be seen outside of practically god-modding. x-x
I mean I've been doing D&D for years... Levels are for the jobs and yea, there's damage scaling but in-character, I have had a lvl 3rouge/2monk with weak multi-purpose gear beat a lvl 9Barbarian/3Warrior with high-grade equipment. Max lvl being 20 total. and I'm talking table-top turn-based...

Meh...

and also, "That moment when you realize you just got played by an idiot." :D
It was actually unintended as Yooka does not think ahead for others except herself. she Just didn't want Yigo to die. :P

Also, she doesn't know how to work well in a team as she doesn't think of the skills the others possess that could combo well with hers, but lol. I'll take the opportunity to point out that, she is NOT skilled, she's incredibly lucky with how she handles things! She doesn't realize what she does half the time.

If I, personally, was in Goro's position I'd listen to Yooka and just get confused and say "what?" then look at Yigo, who should be revived, and say "What?!" then realize what Yooka said again and just did during my confusion and what I did before the confusion and get pissed and say, "What the F***!!?" then demand to know what the hell happened. x3))

In the happier times, when they were three instead of two in his family, the little shrew was told about how he was born. His mother Keira told him about how, when he hatched, he broke the shell of his egg hungry for his first breath of life. It was in that moment in which he understood the meaning of those words.

A blast of light pierced the clouds and struck Yigo, making him wake from his slumber, gasping and coughing while making his scales glow. He dropped to the ground, trying to catch his newly obtained breath as his skin grew duller. Getting on his fours, his heart´s pace steadied and became stable. Many questions sprung from his whereabouts. He seemed to be at the foot of a tree, near a clearing with a frog Pokemon. What had just happened? "W-What... what was that?" His eyes, stuck at nothing but the leaves below, decided to look in the same direction as the amphibian´s.

When he saw the purple Kecleon battling an Ursaring, the lost memories returned to Yigo. The leaves, the Sentret, Goro, Yooka, the gigantic feral in front of them, his... injuries? The Sandshrew rapidly untied the piece of clothing from his leg, revealing his clean slab-like pattern. Not a trace of blood, not even a scratch. The only thing he could find was just a seed that had lost all his lustre, dull and useless at that point, amidst the piece of pink fabric. The Revival Seed had fulfilled its function.

"Yooka... y-you... t-thanks" he mumbled to himself, clutching the scarf between his hands.

The explorer´s fists glowed orange as she charged towards the beast while it unproductively tried to keep her at a distance attacking the nothingness. It still held sand in its eyes, or so it seemed, and those swipes, even though they seemed powerful, tired the feral greatly. When it took a moment to rest from its attacks, Yooka took the chance to strike at the cross-shaped weak spot with a straight punch. The beast moaned with exhaustion, panting and without much energy to roar its pain. Like a last attempt to stop the explorer, it swung its arm, trying to sweep the explorer away from as she was about follow up the opening hit. She managed to make the feral lose its will to fight back but, in exchange, she received a blow that sent her flying away from the beast and away from his sight.

Letting out a quiet squeak, the Sandshrew followed the trajectory of the falling Kecleon. Before he even had time to react, she had already recovered, standing up energetically, still in a battle stance. Yigo wagged his tail involuntarily when he was sure that the explorer was alright "It´s done! I-I... w-we... y-you did it!" Yigo could barely contain his happiness. The three of them had beaten a creature twice or thrice as big as then after all! That was a feat to remember!

The Kecleon seemed to have noticed the Sandshrew since she started to move towards him, not before giving a last look at the defeated feral. Her eyes focused on him for a second before frowning and looking away. She was disappointed with his performance, she had to rescue him and abandon her search just so he didn´t get killed by a Sentret. The explorer´s demonstration of power not only assured the survival of the Sandshrew, it was a reminder that she was strong facing adversities. That was something he wasn´t... he´d do well in remembering that. He did nothing. They´ve won the battle. "I-I... I´m sorry... I-I´m... w-weak" Yigo squeezed the scarf into a ball nervously, lowering his head in embarrassment "I-I only... wanted to... b-but I o-only... got in your way" he whispered without much effort those last words like they didn´t have much importance, like they already knew it, like he tried to avoid saying them.

Yigo tried to hand the scarf back to the explorer; however, doubts had already diminished his will. He looked at a random segment of the piece of fabric and compared it with the ones Yooka was wearing. It was filthy, it had brownish/reddish stains, it was trash now "She can´t use this now... I... I broke it..." each time a thought made it to his mouth he stepped back a little more, finally dropping the scarf out of his hands.  "I-I... I don´t... want to l-leave you... I-I... wanted t-to help... b-but... I can´t even do that... n-not anymore... can I?"

((I may or may not have forgotten about this thread. Whoops, sorry fellas))

The Croagunk observed the fall of the Ursaring quietly, half in shock and half frustrated that he wasn't able to deal with the enemy by himself, but altogether stoic in nature. The great bear fell to its knees under the lizard's twin glowing strikes, the fight draining from it as the futility of the situation apparently sank in finally. Between her, Goro, and the shrew, the odds of it prevailing in this scrap were all but nil. Against any of them individually, of course, its odds were a lot better, but against all odds, the group stuck together during their moment of stress and battle. The fighting-type's fists curled and itched at the prospect of an unfinished fight, but he quickly reminded himself that this was no time for such feelings.

He had come to the Copse for a fight, that is true, but brawling with great beasts above his skill level with the assistance of others wasn't what he had in mind. Still, if this Dungeon was crawling with such monsters, he wouldn't have much of a choice - there was no way he could have prevailed against the great bear by himself. Goro heaved a mighty sigh at the thought, turning to take in the Kecleon and her charge. Apparently, the shrew had some sort of item prepared, as it was freshly conscious and healed - and also overcome with emotion, staring down the lizard with naked hero-worship in its eyes.  

The Kecleon, for her part, seemed to be just as charged from the fight as he was. Despite herself, or what she expected, the joy and adrenaline she received from the fight was clear as day; she was a fighter as much as he was. He would have liked to be intrigued, but at this point, he was fed up with the situation around him and itching for a better scrap. Not some sort of filthy team battle against a pointless, raging beast. Still, the other Pokémon somehow knew him; this was apparent in the way she spoke to him in several instances. Either she was annoyingly forward with him, taking liberties that she really ought not to, or she was the same lizard that he'd run off from his territory in the Marsh way before. The colors didn't match up... but that wouldn't matter much to a chameleon, would it?

"Do I... know ya from somewhere, lady?" His gaze was intent and quizzical as he stared down the Kecleon, paying no attention to the hysterical Sandshrew at her feet. The battle that he'd assisted them with held to merit to him, at the moment; in the back of his mind, he realized that it was probably his fault that the Ursaring came rampaging, but that wasn't necessary to let them know. "Ya mentioned my name, back there."

It took a moment to get back to the group. When she did she ignored Yigo as she looked back at the Ursaring. She suddenly had a need to leave, she shouldn't have even attempted to attack the Ursaring. However, leaving Yigo without holding to her end of whatever she said she'd do... She almost shuddered because now she'll have to find out what that is without asking directly or risk looking like a fool... She looked at him and was going to remind him of something but the Crogunk asked a question that came a little unexpectedly which instinctively made her look over at Goro instead, the topic did two things. She smirked as she had an idea and it also reminded her of her current situation. Was it really not obvious? Species, Personality, Quirk... was she really that commonplaced for her kind? That would be wonderful if it was true but ultimately impossible as then the world would not be as it is.

Instead of answering directly she pointed towards the ground near her feet, her shadow's location. Which it wasn't with her. She never does trust random encounters, her shadow was practically fused with his the entire time. It was now, when she pointed to her shadow, that it return to her. "I don't even remember why I came here. I was in the middle of doing something more important and I think it had to do with this Sandshrew... Specifically what happened after Pricklemist Hill. I'm more likely not myself right now, as I have been recovering from..." Yooka paused as she had no clue as to what it was she was recovering from and then suddenly changed the subject to the second thought that came to mind.

I'm actually not surprised that you don't recognize me. Alot happened between your place and now. I'm confused much more so than you are Goro. Oh, right, my name is Yooka and considering your here in a rather obvious fighting mood. This place is definitely not usually a good fighting kind of place as this place is usually pretty peaceful, although the pokemon here are pretty powerful and wont attack unless attacked or threatened. That Ursaring looked pissed before I launched myself at it, I wonder why..." Yooka didn't really pay attention at all to what she said. Her mind was walking around somewhere else again on why she was here and what she was doing more than everything that just occured. She did at least check herself for any exposed injuries during it. Outside a few there wasn't anything serious. She knew there wasn't going to be any on Yigo and she doesn't believe there to be any on Goro. The outcome came out far better than it would have if Yigo didn't use his sand. However, the blank space between pricklemist to this place and the moments directly after her first contact and and the moment Goro saved Yigo, kept coming back into her head when she tried to shake it out and focus on the more important stuff.

[Reviver Seed used. Energy back at 16]

[16 - 5 (rolls) = 11]


The pair of Pokemon had a little conversation; fortunately, not paying any attention to Yigo. His mind was ravaged due to the waste of the resources of the explorer, his hands covering his head in shame while his ears bent downwards. Why was he so useless?

Yigo sat down on the grass, hearing the two of them talk and argue as a mean to forget what just happened. It was apparent that both of them knew each other but that wasn´t too far-fetched of an idea for the Sandshrew since explorers were known everywhere. Yooka looked apparently confused, probably a bit stunned due to the feral´s attack. She looked like she had forgotten was she was doing there and Yigo was about to stand up and remind her their task: returning the box and finding some items in the meantime. However, did he deserve to tell her what to do? Did he even have a word on the matter after causing that much trouble to her? No. The Sandshrew sat down silently, waiting for the other two to finish what they were doing so he could return to the guild.

Something caught Yigo´s  attention while the two Pokemon were talking. Sounds of leaves brushing fur... something was getting closer. He could sense the pulses of something stepping on the ground but by the looks of it, whatever that was coming was small and biped. Maybe it was the Sentret? Yigo stood up and looked for the previously defeated feral, finding it unconscious where it was defeated. Yigo moved towards the explorer after she had finished wondering about her theory, grabbing one of her hands with both of his and pulling from them as to catch her attention "W-We have to go" he whispered to her. A bit shyly, he glanced over the explorer´s acquaintance just to flinch and look away when he managed to reach the amphibian´s "S-Some.... something is coming" he revealed to the two of them.

It didn´t take long for his prediction to become true, as another Pokemon revealed itself at the opposite side of the clearing. Even worse, the previously defeated beast managed to stand up on its feet once more. The newcomer, probably drawn by the smell of blood and the promise of some easy prey, had a strange mark on its head that slightly reminded Yigo of the ring like the pattern the Ursaring had in its front fur. Yigo didn´t waste his time. He jerked into motion, releasing the explorer´s hand and staying behind her. Oddly enough, the little Pokemon mimicked his moves, staying behind the huge feral. What was going on? Was it the feral´s cub? What were the odds of other members coming to the feral´s aid?

More movement was heard nearby, albeit now in a different fashion. The steps felt heavier but in a much faster pace but a low speed. Quadrupeds.
"We have to go" Yigo warned once more, expecting the group to flee for once and avoid conflict.

The Croagunk's hairless brow furrowed as the Kecleon finally began explaining herself. It had been some time since their quarrel back at Cattail Marsh - honestly, he had forgotten about her. The fact that she had gone through some changed obviously didn't help. Once a spearmint green and confident and cool, the Kecleon was now a little more scatterbrained and absentminded, sporting a violet hue and toting a little kid along with her. Still, she seemed just as effective in a scrap as she did before, laying the two finishing blows on the Ursaring and not hesitating over jumping into the fray once it started. She was still the same person, despite all the changes underneath.

The kid clutching at her legs, however, was something different. He seemed overly timid and afraid of his own shadow, not to mention reckless. He'd nearly gotten himself killed at the hands of the Ursaring, and the Sentret before that. Still, there was something to say for the Ground-type's bravery. He hadn't hesitated, just like Yooka, and had no qualms about jumping into such a dangerous battle.

"We'll have ta talk later," Goro's words were brisque and clipped, his tone flat and unwelcoming. This trip into the Copse was not what he had expected, and he wasn't in such a good mood anymore. The fact that the Kecleon managed to pick up on the Ursaring having a real reason to be so enraged only rankled Goro further, and he resolved not to let slip that he was the one who hurt its cub in the first place. Out of the corner of his eye, he caught the motion of the Teddiursa entering the clearing. Apparently, it didn't take his stern warning to heart and managed to find him again. That, or it was checking in on its mama... The same mama that he had just helped defeat. Goro watched with bated breath as the great Ursaring actually heaved itself to its feet, hurt but not defeated.

"Either she's tougher n' we thought, or ya didn't put it down hard enough. Big bastard is gettin' up and it looks like the cub's here to help."  It wasn't over, yet. Goro felt his lip curl in disgust and frustration, the Poison-type actually turning and spitting to the side, the fire of battle returning to him just as easily as it had left. His fists curled tightly, and he relished the tension it brought to him. The Croagunk turned from Yooka and Yigo, satisfied that they were harmless, but more concerned with the growing threat in front of them. His eyes turned hard and he felt himself grow resolute. No matter how complicated the situation had become, the goal here in the Coppice was the same. Fight some strong Pokémon. He'd come here for a fight, and by the legendaries, he'd found one. "I'll finish it, this time. I got the goods to put it down - a good Drain Punch oughta lay it out after we go a couple rounds with her. But I'll need yer help."

Him and Yooka should suffice to at least wear the great beast down. In the meantime, however, there was the cub to worry about. From his short fight with it earlier, he knew it was no great threat, but it still possessed sharp claws, fangs, and a loud voice it could use to draw attention with. And the last thing he wanted to worry about was a feisty cup distracting him while he focused on the real threat in the clearing. The Croagunk paused, an idea coming to him, turning back to glance at the Sandshrew behind him. From what he could tell, the shrew was brave but unskilled - but he didn't need to be a great fighter to tussle with the cub. "I reckon we could handle the big bear and yer helper can get the cub. Ya got any problem with that, shrew?"

Yooka managed a half sigh half moan towards Goro's plans. She even facepalmed with the arm not being pulled on, and looked over that shoulder... Only to quickly turn around, pulling free of Yigo, to see the Teddiursa in surprise. What was it doing here?! "Oh, you got to be...!" Yet Goro did mention something to Yigo. She clenched her fists and looked back at Goro her voice was practically an extension of her previous sighing except it was a little angrier, "Ofcourse I didn't completely wipe the Ursaring. I don't fight to win, I fight to learn or to stop things before they get serious, or I'd just leave it alone if I know I can't handle it alone. I don't like fighting unless it's to learn something anyway. For example, If it wasn't for Yigo's Sand I may have just ran off, and yet you... mmmrrr..." Yooka looked at Yigo for a second. She didn't feel like explaining anything right now as this wasn't really the time. She moved infront of Yigo more so than before as she only has one more reviver seed in her bag and doesn't intend to give it away.

Meanwhile, the Ursaring didn't advance, it stayed put and just stared at the group. It was dazed and confused but with it's cub nearby it's priority had to have changed. Yooka did the same. Staring at Goro, she pulled out her guild badge, it was just pinned on the serface of her bag, "I'm a Guildmember, there's a code to follow. Starting random fights for no reason other than 'fights' isn't a good way to get reputation and I don't think the Guild would appreciate a member causing problems... but, If your set on continuing a fight within this place then go ahead--" Yooka waved at the Ursaring while looking at  them. "--but be warned that left arm hits just as hard as I do right now, and that's because of my power-up punch's effect being triple stacked. Even if you win I'm not going any further with you. I'm not going to help you either, unless your actually in trouble. If it really comes to that... then I'm getting you and Yigo out of here. Doesn't matter when or how, conscious or unconscious." Now Yooka looked right at Yigo, her voice slightly annoyed but more tolerant, "Yigo, even though you said you wanted to leave just now, if you want to join Goro on, that, the same applies to you. I wont stop you but if you pretty much lose, i'm getting you out. You are not a Guildmember aswell so I won't jud--"

Yooka cut herself off and grabbed her frills and growled loudly while backing off and looking away from Goro. What was she thinking! She should be stopping him but no... She didn't see any mention of him being on the Guild's outlaw board before she left, so there wasn't any reason to stop him. Being in the middle of two very opposite decisions was not her favorite position to be in. The only thing she felt like doing was just to leave and go to the copse to calm down but this was the copse! The third thing on her mind was just a massive erge to tackle and pummel Goro himself right now, but that was senseless. She felt a tree touch her back. She must have been backing up for quite some time if that's the case. She turned towards it and hurled her fist into it without looking. Came to find out, it was the chest of a rather large four-legged pokemon.

Yigo became nervous at Goro´s proposition. Did Yooka´s acquaintance really need his help in taking down the... cub? Why would he do that? They didn´t pose any threat. A quick examination of the cub made him notice some bruises on the clearest patch of its fur. An idea came to his mind: was the feral aggressive because its offspring was attacked? Yigo knew too well who was the wrath of a mother. He had seen it with his eyes in Keira and, to some degree, in Yooka.  Did she approve this sort of behaviour?

Yigo was not fond of fights and, worst of all, the last thing he´d want to do is attacking someone innocent and defenceless. "N-No..." he muttered, "I won´t fight!" Yigo thought Goro acted just to protect them but his reaction... Goro wanted to kill the feral family. Afraid, Yigo dashed away from the Croagunk. The Sandshrew wanted to stop him but... could he? He was not strong enough and Goro already proved to be a very skilled warrior. There was nothing to do but denying his offer and hope that the fighter reconsidered what he was doing. Hopefully, Yooka tried to reason with his acquaintance. Her relationship with the guild made the explorer take an admirable stance, reaching the same conclusion as the Sandshrew did. She was not going to fight. Without noticing it, he was on his two feet smiling at Yooka when she addressed him about what he was going to do, reassuring him that, even if he decided to fight, she´d help him get out of the fight. "I´m not going to fight... I´m not going to fight!" He assured so Yooka could rest easy knowing that she wouldn´t need to take care of him "G-Goro..." he turned to the fighter, shrinking to himself but nonetheless inspired by Yooka "L-Let´s go... s-somewhere else... l-leave them a-"

His words were interrupted by the sound of someone receiving a heavy blow. The screaming came from another Pokemon, behind all of them. He had been so distracted by Goro´s words that he forgot about the quadrupeds that were coming, they were in dan-!

Suddenly, Yigo just realised that the one dealing the blow was Yooka, being the hit directed to a Sawsbuck, now backing off, recoiling,  after the straight punch into its chest. It wasn´t alone, apparently, as it had also brought a Deerling with it. Additionally, Yigo could still hear movement around them but he couldn´t identify much about them after being presented that scenario. Yooka had just attacked someone. She claimed that large Pokemon were harmless yet he just saw the Kecleon punch one. She must have had her reasons, right?

His eyes focused on the Deerling´s, it displayed the same shocked look as Yigo did at that moment jumping back in a panic before shaking its head and focusing. It had focused the Sandshrew for some reason. "No..." Yigo muttered. Yooka would probably have to deal with the Sawsbuck so, unless Goro decided to do something, he would have to fight. The Deerling engaged with a clumsy charge, still affected by what had just happened. It struggled to reach any decent speed, skipping more than it was galloping. In an equally confused and unimpressive manner, Yigo did what he thought it was his only safe choice: he curled in, exposing his harder skin for it to take the hit and just waited until he felt the impact.

Thum!

The Sandshrew was sent rolling back yet the impact barely damaged him. Uncurling after the impact, he noticed that the Deerling was not going to let him get away, following him in pursuit. After letting out a high-pitched squeak, his hands instinctively reached for his back, grabbing a handful of sand to send forth in a wide, unfocused swing. Even after that, the Deerling continued with its reckless charge, its eyes closed after the Sand Attack. It looked like he had to fight after all. He´d have to do like Goro said: fight the cub while hopefully the other two faced the bigger threat.
