Chapter 35: Pokemon League 1st round: Toby vs Ryuki

Toby, after winning all four matches, finally saw the exit of the cave, "Man, I thought this cave would never end!" Toby said, as he ran towards the light outside. Once there, he saw Guzma and Acerola waiting.

"About time you got here," Guzma commented.

"You're the last one for the Red Path," Acerola congratulated.

"Phew, that's good," Toby said, as the three of them continued towards the summit, where they saw three trainers from each of the other paths. Among them, Toby saw Will, to his dismay, Busujima, Plumeria, Sophocles, Mallow, Kukui, Hau, and Gladion, and a trainer dressed in all red. But he never saw Fluttershy or Silver Spoon, 'I guess they lost their matches,' Toby thought to himself, as the twelve trainers approached the coliseum, where people were lining up for tickets.

"Ah, good, you're all here," one of the staff members said, seeing the twelve trainers, "If you'd all come this way, we can get started on the opening ceremony," he said, as the followed him into the building.

"I see you made it Toby, but it looks like Flora and Sylvia didn't make past the qualifiers," Will said, trying to remember the pony's alias'. Just then, they arrived in a sort of conference room, where the Island Kahunas were waiting.

"Glad you all could make it to the next round," Olivia said, as the four kahunas stood side by side with the other trainers.

"Ok, the next round of the Pokémon League will begin at noon today, but we'll be announcing the matchups for the first round momentarily. Each of you has your own locker room, where you can wait until it is your turn to battle. In there, you'll find a computer with the each of your stats logged in. You can review your opponent before your match, and adjust your Pokémon team accordingly. Now then, if you'll all make your way out to the main stage, we'll be starting the League," the staff member said. With that, all the competitors left the conference room, and made their way out into the main coliseum, where people were already filling in the seats. Among the stands, Will and Toby saw their friends, sitting in audience.

"Thank you all for coming! As you know, until today, the Alola Region has never had a Pokémon League. But that all changes today! In the center field, you'll see the Island Kahunas, along with the twelve lucky trainers who will be participating in the league. Each match at first will be randomized, so until its announced, trainers will not know who their first opponent will be. The first round will begin in half an hour, and here will be our first two competitors!" the announcer said, as two pictures side by side were going through each trainer at a rapid pace, until one stopped at Toby, "There you have it! The first trainer of the Alola Region Pokémon League will be Toby Mason, of Mahogany Town! And as for his opponent," the announcer said, as the second picture stopped at the red outfitted trainer, "His opponent will be Ryuki!" the announcer said. Toby looked around, and saw his opponent, who was looking back at him, "We'll be giving trainers half an hour to study up on their opponent, and change their teams accordingly. If the rest of the trainers will return to their respective locker rooms, they will be announced after the first match," the announcer said.

Toby's Locker Room,

"I'm so happy you made it in, Toby!" Fluttershy said, hugging her son.

"Thanks Mo... er, Flora," Toby said.

"So, what the deal with your opponent?" Silver Spoon asked.

"Well, looking at his data, Ryuki is a rock star from another region. His specialty is with Dragon Type Pokémon," Toby said, pulling up Ryuki's profile.

"Looks like his go-to Pokémon is Kommo-o, so you should probably include Mimikyu on your team," Will suggested.

"It also wouldn't hurt to have an Ice Type like Snowball," Silver Spoon added.

"OH! That's reminds me!" Toby said, as he opened up his bag, and pulled out three shards of a pale white Z Crystal with a snowflake symbol, "I found these on my path," Toby said, giving Will, Fluttershy, and Silver Spoon a shard of Icium Z. He then pulled out a Reaper Cloth and an Ice Stone.

"Wow, you really got lucky on your path!" Will commented.

"I just need to get Dusclops and Snowball out of storage," Toby said, as he swapped Kommo-o and Turtonator on his team with Dusclops and Snowball. He then released them, "Snowball, Dusclops, I have something for you guys," Toby said, giving Dusclops the Reaper Cloth, which the Beckon Pokémon seemed to adore. He then gave Snowball the Ice Stone, which triggered Snowball to evolve into an Alolan Ninetails.

"Its so pretty!" Serenity said.

"Ninetails, Alola Form, the Fox Pokémon, and Ice and Fairy Type, and the evolved form of an Alolan Vulpix. Possessing a calm demeanor, this Pokémon was revered as a deity, before being classified as the Alolan Variant of Ninetails," Rotom said.

"But how does Dusclops evolve? It does have the Reaper Cloth," Toby said.

"You need to trade it first. Dusclops is one of the few Pokémon that evolve while holding an item," Will said. They saw the time, and realized there wouldn't be enough time to do so.

"We'll have to do it after the battle," Toby said.

"Good luck Toby," Will said, as Toby made his way back to the battlefield.

Back at the Battlefield,

"The first match of the Alola Region Pokémon League is about to get under way! Here are the rules! Until the semifinals, trainers are only allowed the use of three Pokémon. The battle will be over when all three of either sides Pokémon will be unable to continue. Furthermore, between each match, the battlefield will be swapped out, so trainers can battle on different fields. And the first rounds battle field will be a Rocky Waterfall field!" the announcer said, as the dirt field lowered into the ground, and a rocky waterfall field resurfaced, "And here come the first two trainers! First, he's a rock star out to rock all of Alola, please give it up for Ryuki!" the announcer said, as Ryuki entered the battlefield. The audience cheered loudly, "And his opponent, from Mahogany Town, all the way in the Johto Region, he's a kid with a big heart, it's TOBY MASON!" the announcer said, as Toby entered. The audience cheered just as loudly, as the referee took his place.

"Trainers, choose your first Pokémon!" he declared.

"Time for me to shine, just like the star I am! Go, Dragonite!" Ryuki said, sending out a large, yellow Dragon Pokémon.

"Dragonite, the Dragon Pokémon, a Dragon and Flying Type. It is an intelligent Pokémon that can understand human speech. It is known to lead wayward ships lost at sea to shore," Rotom said.

'Just like I thought, in that case,' Toby thought, clenching his first Pokeball, "Go, Lycanroc!" Toby said, sending out Lycanroc.

"Its a battle between a Dragon and Flying Type Dragonite, and a Rock type Lycanroc. The type advantage should go to Toby, but we'll see," Will commented.

"Alright, battle BEGIN!" the referee declared.

"Lets rock out with Dragon Claw!" Ryuki yelled. Dragonite's claw became cloaked in green energy, and went in to slash Lycanroc.

"Lycanroc, use Counter!" Toby instructed. Lycanroc allowed Dragon Claw to hit, before delivering a powerful blow to Dragonite's stomach, sending it flying back, "Now, use Stone Edge!" Toby instructed. Lycanroc punched the ground, and large, blue rock spikes pierced through the ground, and hit Dragonite, knocking it out.

"Dragonite is unable to battle, the winner is Lycanroc!" the referee declared, as Ryuki recalled Dragonite.

"Not bad kid, but how will you fair against this?!" Ryuki said, releasing Garchomp.

"Since Garchomp is a Ground Type, Lycanroc will have a tough time against it," Will commented.

"Take a break Lycanroc! You did great!" Toby said, recalling the Wolf Pokémon, "Hmm, I know," Toby said, sending out Snowball.

"Snowball may be an Ice and Fairy Type, but Toby should still battle cautiously," Will commented.

"Snowball, Ice Beam!" Toby instructed. Snowball fired a beam of icy energy across the battlefield, creating large spikes of ice, even in the water.

"Garchomp, use Dig, and dodge!" Ryuki instructed. Garchomp burrowed underground, just as the Ice Beam crossed over where it was standing. Garchomp then resurfaced, and struck Snowball, who was still standing, "Now, use Rock Slide!" Ryuki instructed. Garchomp flung a bunch of boulders at Snowball, which did a ton of damage, as Snowball was knocked out.

"Ninetails is unable to battle, the victor is Garchomp!" the referee declared.

"Thanks Snowball, take a nice, long rest," Toby said, recalling Snowball. He then readied his next Pokeball, "Go, Mimikyu!" Toby said, sending out the Disguise Pokémon.

"Garchomp use Fire Fang!" Ryuki instructed. Garchomp's teeth became engulfed in flames, as it glided over to Mimikyu to bite down on it.

"Mimikyu, dodge it, then use Play Rough!" Toby instructed. Mimikyu dodged at the last second, and started smacking around Garchomp, eventually, knocking it out.

"Garchomp is unable to battle, the winner is Mimikyu!" the referee declared.

"Now I can let loose. Go, Kommo-o!" Ryuki said, releasing Kommo-o, "Use Roar!" Ryuki instructed. Kommo-o roared loudly, which sent Mimikyu back into its Pokeball, and swapped places with Lycanroc, "Here we go!" Ryuki said, as he crossed his arms, and the Z Crystal in his Z Ring began reacting. Toby noticed it was a Crystal he had not yet seen, as Ryuki did the pose for Dragon Type Z Moves, which then surrounded Kommo-o with Z Power, "Lets rock out, with Clangorous Soulblaze!" Ryuki instructed. Kommo-o began shaking its scales around, before leaping into the air, and sending a wave of sound at Lycanroc, which sent it back into a large rock, knocking out the Wolf Pokémon.

"Lycanroc is unable to battle, the winner is Kommo-o!" the referee declared, as Toby recalled Lycanroc.

"Thanks Lycanroc, you earned a nice, long rest," Toby said, as he sent Mimikyu back out.

"Both Trainers are now down to their last Pokémon! Who will emerge victorious?!" the announcer asked.

'Ok, since Ryuki used a Z Move, he can't use it again, and even if he could, Mimikyu wouldn't take any damage. Even so, I've got to stay cautious,' Toby thought to himself, "Mimikyu, use Play Rough!" Toby instructed. Mimikyu lunged itself at Kommo-o, and started smacking it around, sending the Scaly Pokémon back a few feet, "Here we go Mimikyu!" Toby said, as he crossed his arms. He then did the pose for Fairy Type Z Moves. Mimikyu then became enveloped in Z Power, "Go Mimikyu, use Twinkle Tackle!" Toby instructed. Mimikyu circled around Kommo-o a few times, before appearing to give it a small peck, which sent the Scaly Pokémon flying. When the smoke cleared, Kommo-o was knocked out.

"Kommo-o is unable to battle, the winner is Mimikyu, therefore, the victor is Toby!" the referee declared. The crowd roared loudly at the match.

"Great job Mimikyu, you did great," Toby said. Looking up, he saw both Ryuki and Kommo-o walking towards them.

"That was the most epic battle I ever had since coming to Alola! You did well kid. Here, take this," Ryuki said, giving Toby a Z Crystal with the emblem of Kommo-o's scales in it, "That is Kommonium Z, the Z Crystal that allows Kommo-o to upgrade its Clanging Scales move into Clangorous Soulblaze. Use it well in the tournament," Ryuki said.

"I will, thanks," Toby said, as the two shook hands.

Toby went back to his locker room, just as he ran into his friends, "Hey guys," Toby said.

"Congrats on your win," Will said.

"Thanks, it was tough," Toby said.

"By the way, what was that thing Ryuki gave you?" Silver Spoon asked. Toby pulled out the Z Crystal.

"He said its called Kommonium Z, and it upgrades Clanging Scales into the Z Move we all saw out there," Toby said.

"Amazing," Will said.

"Sorry about the delay folks. With out further ado, here is our next match! Its going to pit Trial Captain Acerola against the Island Challenge Bully, Busujima!" the announcer said, as the nearby monitor showed a picture of the two next competitors. They then saw Busujima himself, walking down to the arena.

"You geeks better watch. I ain't fooling around in this tournament," Busujima cackled cruelly, as he made his way to the arena.

"I hope Acerola will be alright," Toby commented.

"We'd better get back to the stands and lend her all the support we can," Fluttershy suggested. With that, our heroes went back to the stands to watch the next battle.
