Chapter 36: Busujima VS Acerola: Hala vs Hau: Will vs Mallow (Part 1)

"Thank you all for your patience, now lets get the second match of the Pokémon League started! Our first competitor is one of Alola's very own trial captains. Please give it up for Acerola!" the announcer said, as Acerola entered the ring.

"Hey everybody! Hope you all are as pumped as I am!" Acerola exclaimed, waving to everyone.

"And her opponent. He's a trainer with a battle style as nasty as him, he is the island challenge bully, Busujima!" the announcer said, as Busujima entered the arena. Everyone in the arena booed him.

'Bah, who cares what THEY think. All I need to do is power through the other losers in this tournament. That's al that matters,' Busujima thought to himself.

"And now, we'll find out where these two trainers will battle!" the announcer said, as the monitor showed several battlefields, eventually stopping at a picture of a beach. The dirt battlefield lowered, and a battlefield matching the beach picture rose back up, "Looks like these two are battling it out on the beach battlefield! They can use the sand to make sandcastles, or for cover, or take a nice soak in the water to launch devastating attacks," the announcer said, as the referee took his position.

"Trainers, choose your first Pokémon!" the referee instructed.

"Time to shine with my adorable Ghost friends!" Acerola said, sending out Dhelmise.

"Hmph, 'friends', what a load of baloney," Busujima said, as he sent out Muk. Our heroes quickly got to their seats, just as the match started.

"Dhelmise, take to the water!" Acerola instructed. Dhelmise quickly dove into the water.

"Already hiding? Man, you're just as much of a fool as that geek, Toby. Muk, use Sludge Wave!" Busujima ordered. Muk summoned a wave of toxic sludge, which hit the water, and flushed out Dhelmise.

"Dhelmise, use Anchor Shot!" Acerola instructed. With a swing of its anchor, Dhelmise struck Muk, who managed to grab a hold of it. Dhelmise struggled to get away.

"Muk, use Dark Pulse," Busujima ordered. Muk fired a stream of black rings at the defenseless Dhelmise, and knocked it out in one move, "Too easy," he said.

"Dhelmise is unable to battle, the winner is Muk!" the referee declared, as Acerola recalled Dhelmise.

"Thanks Dhelmise, you did great out there," Acerola said, as she readied her next Pokeball, "Go, Mismagius!" Acerola said, sending out a Mismagius, "If Mismagius can use Will-o-wisp, I can whittle away at Muk's stamina," she said to herself.

"Return, Muk!" Busujima said, recalling the sludge Pokémon, "Salazzle, go!" Busujima said, sending out a Salazzle, "You're way too predictable. You were planning to use Will-o-Wisp and have Muk's stamina reduce little by little, but now with Salazzle, that strategy is about as worthless as your poorly trained Ghost Pokémon!" Busujima snarled.

"Take that back! Ghost Pokémon are some of the cutest Pokémon out there! So spooky, yet, so mysterious. That's why I dedicated my whole career as a trainer to being a Ghost Pokémon trainer," Acerola said.

"Man, you sure can babble," Busujima rudely complained.

"Oh, it doesn't matter, Mismagius can still take that Salazzle, especially with its Psychic attack!" Acerola declared, as Mismagius fired psychic energy at Salazzle, causing major damage.

"Salazzle, use Toxic!" Busujima ordered. Salazzle fired a ball of sludge at Mismagius, which badly poisoned it, "Now, Venoshock," Busujima ordered. Salazzle fired a strange, purple fluid at Mismagius, which knocked it out in one hit.

"Mismagius is unable to battle, the winner is Salazzle!" the referee declared, as Acerola recalled Mismagius.

"Not good. Acerola is now working at a major disadvantage with just one last Pokémon, while Busujima still has all of his," Will said.

"This could be my last chance. Go, Golurk!" Acerola said, sending out a colossal, teal blue statue like Pokémon.

"That Pokémon is huge!" Silver Spoon exclaimed.

"Golurk, the Automaton Pokémon, a Ghost and Ground type, and the evolved form of Golett. Some say that ancient people invented Golurk to serve as a laborer. It follows its master's orders faithfully," Rotom said.

"This Golurk is a symbol of friendship between me and Hapu. Golurk has never let me down before," Acerola said.

"Well, this is going to be the first time, especially with Salazzle's Toxic!" Busujima yelled, as Salazzle fired a ball of sludge at Golurk, who blocked the attack.

"Don't think that will help. Golurk, use Heavy Slam!" Acerola instructed. Golurk delivered a powerful punch to Salazzle, which was able to knock it out.

"Salazzle is unable to battle, the winner is Golurk!" the referee declared, as Busujima recalled Salazzle. He then sent out Muk.

"Muk, use Crunch!" Busujima ordered. Muk lunged at Golurk, and bit down on its leg, hard, causing Golurk to stumble, "Now use Dark Pulse!" he ordered again. Muk then fired a stream of black rings at Golurk, which was able to knock it out.

"Golurk is unable to battle, the winner is Muk, therefore, the victor is Busujima!" the referee declared. The stadium was eerily quiet, as no one would cheer for Busujima, who merely left the arena. Falling to her knees, Acerola was downtrodden.

"Thank you Golurk, you did great," she said, as she recalled Golurk. She then stood up, and left the arena.

Back in Acerola's locker room,

Holding the Pokeballs that were holding her Pokémon, Acerola thought about the match, "That match, it was way too one sided. I thought for sure having Psychic and Ground type Moves on each of my Pokémon would give me the edge I needed," she said, as she hugged her Pokeballs. Just then, she heard knocking at her door, "Come in," she called. Opening the door revealed Hapu, looking quite sympathetic to her friend.

"Sorry about what happened out there," Hapu said, sitting next to her friend.

"I though for sure that Golurk could take out all of his remaining Pokémon, especially when it took out Salazzle," Acerola said.

"Well, that Muk did have the edge in terms of those Dark Type moves. But you shouldn't feel bad about your loss, you had the better philosophy about your Pokémon, and that is what makes you a true winner, instead of Busujima," Hapu said.

Acerola thought about what Hapu said, letting it sink in, "You're right, I shouldn't let that loss get me down! A trainer who loves and respects their Pokémon are real winners along with their Pokémon," Acerola said.

"That's right. Now, why don't we head back out to the stands? The next match should be announced fairly soon," Hapu suggested. Acerola followed her friend, and they returned to the stands.

"Sorry for the wait! Now, we'll announce our third matchup!" the announcer said, as the screen behind her began flipping through the remaining trainers. One of the pictures stopped at Hala, "The first trainer for the third match will be the kahuna of Melemele Island, Hala, of Iki Town! And as for his opponent," the announcer said, as the second picture stopped at Hau, "His opponent, also from Iki Town, he's a goodhearted trainer, here to prove he can be just as strong, if not stronger than his grandfather, Hala, he's Hau!" the announcer said, as both trainers entered the arena.

"Whoa, so Hau is going to battle Hala," Will commented.

"Hau should've defeated Hala before, but then again, Hala might've held back a little during the Grand Trial," Toby theorized.

"But now Hala isn't going to hold back," the turned to see Hapu and Acerola sitting next to them.

"What do you mean?" Toby asked.

"See, the kahuna's of each Island are strong, crazy strong, to the point that they can win in about maybe three moves. Each Kahuna normally holds back just a little bit to give each trainer taking the Grand Trials a challenge. But now, Hala won't hold back, because like all the other trainers, he wants to be Champion," Acerola explained, as the battle field was chosen.

"Our two trainers will be duking it out on the oasis battlefield!" the announcer said, as an oasis type field rose up from the ground.

"Trainers, choose your Pokémon!" the referee said.

"Here I come, tutu, now, Espeon, go!" Hau said, sending out an Espeon.

"Primeape, to my side!" Hala said, sending out a rather angry looking monkey like Pokémon.

"Espeon, the Sun Pokémon, a Psychic Type, and an evolved form of Eevee. It uses air currents to predict its opponents next move. The orb on its forehead generates most of its psychic powers. Primeape, the Pig Monkey Pokémon, a Fighting Type, and the evolved form of Mankey. Some researchers theorize that Primeape remains angry, even while in its Pokeball," Rotom said.

"Since Espeon is a Psychic Type, it has the upper hand against Primeape, whose a Fighting Type, but we'll see," Will commented, as the battle began.

"Espeon, use Psybeam!" Hau instructed. Espeon fired a beam of Psychic Energy at Primeape.

"Primeape, dodge, then use Night Slash!" Hala instructed. Primeape skillfully dodged, and, with its hands turning purple, slashed Espeon, which did massive damage.

"Espeon, use Morning Sun!" Hau instructed. The sunlight became more bright, as it healed Espeon, "Now, use Double Team!" Hau said. Espeon made several copies of itself, which confused Primeape.

"Stay calm Primeape, use Bulldoze!" Hala said. Primeape stomped the ground, causing it to shake up Espeon, who tried to hang on.

"Espeon, use Psychic!" Hau instructed. Espeon, using Psychic powers, lifted up Primeape, and sent it flying. Primeape was knocked out as a result.

"Primeape is unable to battle, the winner is Espeon!" the referee declared, as Hala recalled Primeape.

"Excellent work Primeape," Hala said, as he readied his next Pokeball, "Go, Crabominable!" Hala said, sending out a Crabominable.

"Ok, whose that Pokémon?" Will wondered.

"Crabominable, the Wooly Crab Pokémon, an Ice and Fighting Type, and the evolved form of Crabrawler. A Crabrawler aiming to be the best it could be lost its way, and wound up in an icy region," Rotom said.

"My Crabrawler actually evolved when I battle Gladion," Fluttershy said.

"Crabominable, use Brutal Swing!" Hala instructed. Crabominable grabbed Espeon's tail, and swung it around, and slammed it on the ground, knocked out.

"Espeon is unable to battle, the winner is Crabominable!" the referee declared, as Hau recalled Espeon.

"Alright, go, Noivern!" Hau said, sending out a large, bat like Pokémon, similar to Noibat, but with bigger, speaker like ears.

"Noivern, the Sound Wave Pokémon, a Flying and Dragon Type, and the evolved form of Noibat. Noivern is a hot blooded Pokémon that uses sound waves strong enough to shatter boulders to attack. Its favorite food is fruit," Rotom said.

"Noivern, use Acrobatics!" Hau instructed. Glowing teal, Noivern slammed into Crabominable several times.

"Crabominable, use Ice Punch!" Hala instructed. Crabominable swung its pincers with cold energy surrounding them, just barely grazing Noivern's side.

"Stay strong Noivern, use Boom Burst!" Hau instructed. Noivern fired a very powerful sound blast that knocked back Crabominable, knocking it out.

"Crabominable is unable to battle, the winner is Noivern!" the referee declared, as Hala recalled Crabominable.

"You've certainly come a long way on your Island Challenge, Hau," Hala said.

"Thanks Tutu, but its really all thanks to my Pokémon. They did all the work," Hau said, scratching the back of his head and smiling.

"That may be, but you were the one who gave your Pokémon instructions in every battle you've had up to this point. So, you did have an important role to play as well. Now then, here is my last Pokémon, go, Hariyama!" Hala said, sending out Hariyama.

"This is where things get dicey. Hala only has one Pokémon left, while Hau has two, and one of them hasn't even battled yet," Will commented.

"Hariyama, use Rock Slide!" Hala instructed. Hariyama summoned large boulders that Noivern tried valiantly to avoid, but got hit, and knocked out.

"Noivern is unable to battle, the winner is Hariyama!" the referee declared, as Hau recalled Noivern.

"Alright, now things are getting interesting. Go, Raichu!" Hau said, sending out his Raichu, "Raichu, use Thunderbolt!" Hau instructed. Raichu fired a bolt of electricity at Hariyama, which seemed to cause the Arm Thrust Pokémon to become paralyzed.

"Hariyama, use Façade!" Hala instructed. Hariyama slammed into Raichu, which seemed to cause a ton of damage.

"Façade is a move that becomes for powerful if the user has something like paralysis or poison," Will commented.

"Which means Hariyama has a means of countering Raichu, who has the advantage, right?" Fluttershy asked.

"Precisely. If Hau wants to win, he needs to land one hit to knock out Hariyama. The same goes for Hala and knocking out Raichu," Will replied.

"Ok Raichu, here we go!" Hau said, as he crossed his arms, and did the pose for Psychic Type Z Moves, "Alright Raichu, use Shattered Psyche!" Hau instructed. Using its Z power, Raichu flung Hariyama around, and slammed it against the ground with full force. When the smoke cleared, Hariyama was knocked out.

"Hariyama is unable to battle, the winner is Raichu. Therefore, the victor is Hau!" the referee declared, as Hariyama was recalled.

"Nice job Raichu!" Hau said, high-fiving his Pokémon.

"Yes, that was an excellent battle. Take this experience and get as far into the competition as you can!" Hala said, praising his grandson.

"What an explosive battle! And I'm sure the next one will be even more exciting!" the announcer said, as the screen began randomizing the other trainers. Both stopped at Will and Mallow, "Our next matchup is going to pit Will of Mahogany Town against Trial Captain Mallow of Konikoni City!" the announcer said.

"Well, I'm up. Wish us luck," Will said, as he made his way down to battlefield, just as the field randomizer began to choose the next battlefield. It then stopped at a picture of a grassy field.

"Our next battle will now take place on the grassy plains battlefield!" the announcer said, as the field changed to a very large patch of grass, as both trainers entered the arena, "First up, he's a expert trainer all the way from the Johto region, he's Will! And his opponent, one of Alola's very own Trial Captains, she's a spunky Grass Type Trainer, its Mallow!" the announcer said.

"Who would've thought we'd both be in a match?" Will asked.

"We may be friends, but that doesn't mean I'll go easy on you!" Mallow said, as the referee took his place, "Go, Trevenant!" Mallow said, sending out a Trevenant.

"Just as I thought, Mallow using a Grass Type. In that case, go, Marowak!" Will said, sending out Marowak.
