Chapter 39: Busujima Vs. Plumeria

"Tauros, use Take Down!" Busujima ordered. Tauros then charged at Arbok.

"Arbok, use Dig to dodge!" Plumeria instructed. Arbok burrowed underground, and escaped Tauros.

"Get it together Tauros! Use Earthquake!" Busujima ordered. Tauros then stomped on the ground, sending tremors throughout the ground.

"Not good. Earthquake is a move that can hit a Pokémon even when it's using Dig," Will commented, as Arbok was forced from the ground, and was knocked out, "On top of that, Ground Type Moves are super effective against Poison Type Pokémon," he added.

"Arbok is unable to battle, the winner is Tauros!" the referee declared, as Plumeria recalled Arbok.

"Thank you Arbok. Take a long rest," Plumeria said, as she readied her next Pokeball, "Go, Garbodor!" Plumeria said, sending out a Pokémon that looked like a walking pile of trash.

"Garbodor, the Trash Heap Pokémon, a Poison Type, and the evolved form of Trubbish. Some say that Garbodor in Alola are a little stronger than their counterparts elsewhere is the presence of Muk, it's natural enemy," Rotom said.

"Garbodor, use Toxic!" Plumeria instructed. From the tubes on its arm, Garbodor fired Toxic at Tauros, badly poisoning the Wild Bull Pokémon, "Now into Venoshock!" Plumeria added. Garbodor fired Venoshock at Tauros, causing huge damage.

"Tauros, use Façade!" Busujima ordered. Tauros then charged into Garbodor, knocking out the Trash Heap Pokémon. However, Tauros also collapsed.

"Garbodor and Tauros are both unable to battle!" the referee declared.

"Façade is a move that deals double the damage if the user is suffering from a status ailment," Will commented.

"That Busujima. He must've had this planned out!" Silver Spoon commented.

"But at least Plumeria knocked out one of his Pokémon," Toby added.

"Alright, go, Gorebyss!" Busujima said, sending out a pink fish Pokémon.

"Gorebyss, the South Sea Pokémon, a Water Type, and an Evolved form of Clampearl. The color of it's body changes with the temperature of the water. The coloration of Gorebyss in Alola is almost blindingly vivid," Rotom said.

"Go, Drapion!" Plumeria said, sending out a large scorpion like Pokémon.

"Drapion, the Ogre Scorp Pokémon, a Poison and Dark Type, and the evolved form of Skorupi. Drapion's claws secrete a powerful poison. This, combined with it's tremendous strength can turn a car into scrap metal," Rotom said.

"Hard to say who has the advantage. Gorebyss can dive underwater to avoid Drapion's attacks. However, since it can swivel its 180 degrees, Drapion has no blind spots," Will commented.

"Gorebyss, use Aqua Jet!" Busujima ordered. Gorebyss became cloaked in water, and rocketed at Drapion.

"Catch it with your claws!" Plumeria instructed. Drapion did just that. Gorebyss struggled to get free, "Now, use Poison Fang!" she added. Drapion then bit down on Gorebyss, sending it back into the water.

"Gorebyss, use Ice Beam!" Busujima ordered. Gorebyss fired Ice Beam at Drapion, who only shook it off, "Ok, try a Hydro Pump!" he ordered again. Gorebyss fired a huge volley of water at Drapion, who was sent back a few feet.

"Drapion, use Pin Missile!" Plumeria instructed. Drapion fired several needle like projectiles at Gorebyss, successfully knocking it out.

"Gorebyss is unable to battle, the winner is Drapion!" the referee declared.

"Now it's evened out," Toby commented.

"We'll see. Drapion's taken a lot of damage," Will replied.

"Go, Flygon!" Busujima yelled, sending out a shiny Flygon, "Use Earth Power!" Busujima ordered. Flygon struck the ground, and the ground around Drapion exploded, knocking out the Ogre Scorp Pokémon.

"Drapion is unable to battle, the winner is Flygon! Since Plumeria has lost three Pokémon, we'll take a five minute intermission," the referee declared, as both trainer's recalled their Pokémon.

"Man, that was intense," Will commented.

"So far, Busujima's used Tauros, Gorebyss, and now Flygon. What other Pokémon does he have?" Toby pondered, as the intermission had concluded, and a forest waterfall field rose up from the ground.

"Salazzle, go!" Plumeria said, sending out her signature Pokémon.

"Go, Tentacruel!" Busujima said, sending out his Tentacruel.

"Salazzle, go, use Toxic!" Plumeria instructed. Salazzle fired Toxic at Tentacruel, badly poisoning it.

"That's right, both Salandit and Salazzle have that Corrosion ability, so even Poison and Steel Types can get poisoned," Toby commented, remembering his battle at the Power Plant with Busujima.

"Get it together Tentacruel, use Hydro Pump!" Busujima ordered. Tentacruel fired a huge volley of water at Salazzle, and was able to one-shot the Toxic Lizard Pokémon.

"Salazzle is unable to battle, the winner is Tentacruel!" the referee declared, as Plumeria recalled Salazzle.

"Toxapex, go!" Plumeria said, sending out Toxapex.

"Return Tentacruel!" Busujima ordered, recalling Tentacruel, "Go, Flygon!" Busujima said, sending Flygon back out.

"Let's see if he'll take the bait," Plumeria thought to herself.

"This chick must think I'm stupid. She'll want me to attack directly, and have Toxapex use Baneful Bunker," Busujima thought to himself, "Flygon, use Sandstorm!" Busujima ordered. Flygon then kicked up a powerful sandstorm, which made it difficult for Toxapex to see clearly.

"Stay calm Toxapex! Use Spike Cannon!" Plumeria instructed. Toxapex then fired several spikes at Flygon, only for the Sandstorm to kick a few of them away, while only some managed to hit Flygon.

"Flygon, use Steel Wing!" Busujima ordered. Flygon's wings became metallic, and charged at Toxapex.

"No good, now, use Baneful Bunker!" Plumeria ordered. Toxapex closed all of its tentacles, and it's spikes extended. Not only did Flygon's attack not do anything to damage Toxapex, but it was poisoned as well.

"Just as I thought. Flygon, use Earth Power!" Busujima ordered. Flygon then slammed the ground, causing the ground around Toxapex to exploded, knocking out the Brutal Star Pokémon.

"Toxapex is unable to battle, the winner is Flygon!" the referee declared, as Plumeria recalled Toxapex.

"Alright. Now, Muk, let's go!" Plumeria said, sending out her last Pokémon; her Muk, "Venoshock, now!" Plumeria quickly declared. Muk fired the mysterious purple substance at Flygon, causing huge damage, but Flygon wasn't out yet, "Alright, let's try this then!" Plumeria said, as she did the pose for Poison Type Z Moves. Muk became enveloped in Z Power, "Use Acid Downpour!" Plumeria declared. The battlefield became swamped in poison, and Flygon was dragged underneath, knocking out the Mystic Pokémon.

"Flygon is unable to battle, the winner is Muk!" the referee declared.

"Phew, that Flygon of his was trouble," Will commented.

"But don't celebrate just yet. Busujima still has two Pokémon left, and one of them hasn't even battled yet," Silver Spoon reminded.

"Now, go Salazzle!" Busujima said, sending out his sixth Pokémon, "Use Dragon Pulse, now!" Busujima ordered.

"Protect, quick!" Plumeria declared. Muk surrounded itself in a barrier, shielding it from Salazzle's attack.

"Not bad, but what'll you do about this?!" Busujima taunted, as he did the pose for Dragon Type Z Moves, surrounding Salazzle in Z Power, "Go, use Devastating Drake!" Busujima ordered. Salazzle summoned a dragon like projectile made of Z Power, and sent it flying towards Muk. The Sludge Pokémon was just barely hanging on.

"Nice one old friend, now use Mud Bomb!" Plumeria declared. Muk fired a ball of mud at Salazzle, and was able to one-shot the Toxic Lizard Pokémon.

"Salazzle is unable to battle, the winner is Muk!" the referee declared, as Busujima swapped Muk out for Tentacruel, who was still poisoned.

"Tentacruel, use Hydro Pump!" Busujima ordered. Tentacruel fired Hydro Pump at Muk, striking the Sludge Pokémon, and knocking it out.

"Muk is unable to battle, the winner is Tentacruel, therefore, moving on to the semi finals will be Busujima!" the referee declared, as everyone in the stadium booed.

"That was rough," Fluttershy commented.

"But at least we know a little more about what Pokémon Busujima has. That way we can prepare if we face him in the next round," Will replied.

"The next matchup will be pitting Toby Mason of Mahogany Town against Gladion, from parts unknown," the announcer said.

"Well, I'd better get down there," Toby said.

"Good luck sweetie pie!" Silver Spoon called, as Toby made his way to the battlefield.

Meanwhile, in a big laboratory,

Giovanni was waiting impatiently for the scientists to get done with what they were working on, "Alright Mr. Giovanni, we think we've done it! This new update to the Dark Ball will help Team Rainbow Rocket achieve our goals," one scientist said.

"How does it work?" Giovanni asked.

"Bring in the test subjects!" the scientist ordered. Just then, a cage filled to the brim with unevolved Pokémon was brought in. One of the grunts took out an Elekid, a Magby, and a Larvitar, "Now, allow us to demonstrate the new full extent of the Dark Ball's power!" the scientist said, as the grunt threw three Black Pokeballs at the three Pokémon, capturing them, "As you know, the Dark Ball is able to raise a Pokémon's power to it's highest level, but only for whatever Pokémon the Dark Ball catches. It doesn't do anything else," the scientist explained.

"Is there a point to this?" Giovanni asked.

"This is where the new update comes into play," the scientist said, as the grunt released the three Pokémon he just caught. But their coloration was darker. They then began glowing black and purple, and grew larger, much larger. They had all evolved into their final forms, Electivire, Magmortar, and Tyranitar, "As you can see, this new update allows the Dark Ball to force the Pokémon to evolve into it's final stage," the scientist explained.

"Have you sent this update to all our operatives?" Giovanni asked.

"Yes. Now Team Rainbow Rocket will have the most unstoppable Pokémon Army!" the scientist cackled.

"Very good. As you were," Giovanni said, leaving the scientists to do their work.
