Chapter 41: Hau VS Hapu

"Sorry for the wait folks. We have our next match up starting now! It'll be pitting Hau from Iki Town against Kahuna Hapu from Poni Island! And the first half of the match will take place on an Ice Battle Field!" the announcer said, as a battlefield made of ice rose up from the ground, and the two trainers made their way to their places. The referee took his place as well.

"The third match of the Alola Pokémon League Quarter Finals will now get underway! Each trainer is allowed the maximum use of six Pokémon, and the match will be over when all six of either sides Pokémon are unable to continue! Furthermore, substitutions may be made at any time. If both trainers are ready, then choose your Pokémon!" the referee declared.

"I'll start of with this one!" Hau said, sending out a Vaporeon.

"I think I'll go with this one," Hapu said, sending out a what appeared to be a sandcastle Pokémon with a shovel on the top of it.

"Whose that Pokémon?" Will wondered.

"Palossand, the Sand Castle Pokémon, a Ghost and Ground Type, and the evolved form of Sandygast. The shovel on the top of it's head acts as a radar. And as for Hau's Pokémon, it's a Vaporeon, the Bubble Jet Pokémon, a Water Type, and one of many evolved forms of Eevee. It can detect nearby moisture with it's fin. If the fin shakes rapidly, it will rain in a few hours," Rotom said.

"Vaporeon, use Water Gun!" Hau instructed. Vaporeon blasted Palossand with a jet of water. While it appeared to cause damage, Palossand's body looked to become reinforced.

"What was that? Water Type Moves should be super effective against ground types," Will commented.

"It's Palossand's Water Compaction Ability. When hit with a Water type attack, it's defensive power goes up," Rotom explained.

"I see, so that's why Hapu chose Palossand," Toby commented.

"Yeah, Palossand is one of Hapu's defenses against Water Type Pokémon," our heroes jumped when Acerola appeared next to them.

"Wait, so Hapu has another Pokémon for Water Types?" Fluttershy asked.

"Yes. But, rather than tell you, let's have Hapu show us," Acerola replied.

"Palossand, use Giga Drain!" Hapu instructed. Palossand glowed green, as did Vaporeon, as the glows became connected, and Vaporeon began looking weaker.

"Not good, Vaporeon, return!" Hau said, recalling Vaporeon, "Let's see. I can try sending in Primarina, but Water Compaction will just make Palossand even stronger against us. Wait, there's an idea!" Hau said, as he release a Leafeon.

"Leafeon, the Verdant Pokémon, a Grass Type, and one of many evolved forms of Eevee. Because it uses photosynthesis like a plant, it's always surrounded by clean air," Rotom said.

"Leafeon, use Leaf Blade!" Hau instructed. The leaves that Leafeon has on it's tail and head glowed green, and became sharper, and then Leafeon slashed Palossand.

"Hold your ground Palossand! Use Shadow Ball!" Hapu instructed. Palossand fired Shadow Ball at Leafeon.

"Dodge, then use Leaf Blade again!" Hau instructed. Leafeon nimbly dodged Shadow Ball, and slashed Palossand once more, knocking it out.

"Palossand is unable to battle, the winner is Leafeon!" the referee declared, as Hapu recalled Palossand.

"Thank you old friend. Take a well earned rest," Hapu said, as she pulled out a Net Ball, "Gastrodon, to my side!" Hapu said, sending out her Gastrodon.

"Gastrodon against Leafeon? Doesn't Hapu know that's a bad matchup?" Toby pondered.

"Don't sell Gastrodon so short. It's one of the few Pokémon she has that can counter Grass and Water Types," Acerola said.

"Gastrodon, use Blizzard!" Hapu instructed. Gastrodon summoned a howling blizzard, which seemed t do a lot of damage to Leafeon, as it was encased in ice.

"Oh no, Leafeon!" Hau exclaimed.

"Now, use Rock Slide!" Hapu instructed. Gastrodon summoned several boulders that struck the still stuck Leafeon, knocking it out.

"Leafeon is unable to battle, the winner is Gastrodon!" the referee declared, as Hau recalled Leafeon.

"Thanks Leafeon, you did great," Hau said, as he thought of his next move, "Let's see, Gastrodon's a Water and Ground Type, so Electric type moves won't have much effect, but if I use speed, I can get a jump on Gastrodon. Alright, Espeon, let's go!" Hau said, sending out Espeon.

"Espeon, the Sun Pokémon, a Psychic Type, and one of many evolved forms of Eevee. Espeon can sense what it's opponent will do next with it's fur and the red jewel in it's forehead," Rotom said.

"Espeon, use Psybeam!" Hau instructed. From it's forehead, Espeon fired Psybeam, striking Gastrodon, who looked to be confused.

"Gastrodon, return!" Hapu said, recalling Gastrodon.

"Good call on Hapu's part. Recalling a confused Pokémon snaps them out of it," Will commented.

"Flygon, give them what for!" Hapu said, sending out her Flygon, "Use Earthquake!" Hapu instructed. Flygon struck the ground, causing a massive tremor, making it hard for Espeon to stay standing.

"Espeon, return!" Hau said, recalling Espeon, "Alright, Primarina, let's go!" Hau said, sending out a Primarina, "Use Ice Beam!" Hau instructed. Primarina fired Ice Beam at Flygon, sending it to the ground, knocked out.

"Flygon is unable to battle, the winner is Primarina!" the referee declared, as Hapu recalled Flygon.

"Alright, Dugtrio, let's go!" Hapu said, sending out her Alolan Dugtrio, "Use Iron Head!" Hapu instructed. Dugtrio, surrounded by grey energy, charged at Primarina.

"Primarina, use Sparkling Aria!" Hau instructed. Primarina fired it's attack, and was able to one-shot Dugtrio.

"Dugtrio is unable to battle, the winner is Primarina! Since three of Kahuna Hapu's Pokémon are unable to battle, we'll take a five minute intermission!" the referee declared, as both trainers recalled their Pokémon.

"Phew, who would've thought my second battle against Hapu would be so tough?" Hau wiped the sweat off of his head.

"That Hau boy's gotten stronger since his Grand Trial," Hapu said, as a Forest Battle Field rose up from the ground.

"Ok, there's a lot of trees, so I should prioritize speed over power. I know! Noivern, let's go!" Hau said, sending out his Noivern.

"Krookadile, I choose you!" Hapu said, sending out a massive, red crocodile Pokémon.

"Krookadile, the Desert Croc Pokémon. A Ground and Dark Type, and the evolved form of Krokorok. The membrane around it's eyes allow it see great distances, even in violent sandstorms," Rotom said.

"Technically speaking, I would say Noivern has the advantage, on account of it being a Flying Type, but Krookadile can use Dragon and Rock type Moves that Noivern is weak against," Will commented.

"Noivern, take to the air!" Hau instructed. Noivern flew up, "Now, use Acrobatics!" he added. Noivern then glowed teal, and started ramming into Krookadile from all angles.

"Krookadile, try to sense where Noivern will strike from next, and use Dragon Claw!" Hapu instructed. Krookadile continued taking the attacks, and tried watching for Noivern. When it got a bead on the Sound Wave Pokémon, Krookadile slashed Noivern with teal colored claws. Noivern staggered a bit, but remained in the air.

"Since we can't risk attacking head on, Noivern, use Boomburst!" Hau instructed. From it's speaker like ears, Noivern fired a ballistic sound attack, breaking a lot of the trees on the battlefield, and even smashing a few boulders.

"Krookadile, use Dig and escape!" Hapu instructed. Krookadile quickly burrowed underground, and narrowly avoided Boomburst.

"Good call, but Dig is a Ground Type Move. Flying Type Pokémon like Noivern are immune," Will commented.

"And don't Noivern have supersonic hearing?" Fluttershy asked.

"Yeah. Noivern can launch an attack on the ground, and force Krookadile above ground," Will replied.

"Noivern, try to pinpoint where Krookadile is, and use Dragon Pulse!" Hau instructed. Using it's ears to send out sonic waves, Noivern scanned the battlefield for Krookadile. When it found it, Noivern fired Dragon Pulse at the ground, forcing Krookadile above ground, "Now, use Hyper Beam!" Hau instructed. Noivern fired off Hyper Beam at point blank range, sending Krookadile back to the ground, knocked out.

"Krookadile is unable to battle, the winner is Noivern!" the referee declared, as Hapu recalled Krookadile, "Gastrodon, let's go!" Hapu said, sending Gastrodon back out, "Use Ice Beam!" Hapu instructed. Gastrodon fired Ice Beam at Noivern, striking the Sound Wave Pokémon, causing it to fall to the ground, knocked out.

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

"Thanks Noivern. You did great out there," Hau said, readying his next Pokeball, "Espeon, let's go!" Hau said, sending Espeon back out.

"This match up again," Toby commented.

"Espeon, use Swift!" Hau instructed. Espeon fired Swift, which struck Gastrodon, who held on.

"Gastrodon, use Muddy Water!" Hau instructed. Gastrodon summoned a wave of murky water, which swamped the battlefield, knocking out Espeon.

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

"Vaporeon, let's go!" Hau said, sending Vaporeon back out.

"Good call. Vaporeon's ability is Water Absorb, which not only nullifies all Water Type attacks, but heals itself," Will commented.

"So Vaporeon can heal itself from the damage it took when battling Palossand," Silver Spoon commented.

"Gastrodon, use Mud Shot!" Hapu instructed. Gastrodon fired a stream of mud at Vaporeon.

"Quick, use Mirror Coat!" Hau instructed. Vaporeon started glowing, and sent Mud Shot back at Gastrodon with double the force. Both Pokémon were knocked out.

"Both Vaporeon and Gastrodon are unable to battle!" the referee declared, as the trainers recalled their respective Pokémon.

"Mirror Coat is much like Counter, except it only returns double the damage dealt by Special Attacks," Will commented.

"And now Hapu is down to her last Pokémon, while Hau still has two Pokémon left. And one of them hasn't battled yet," Toby added.

"And I think we all know Hapu's last Pokémon," Fluttershy said.

"Now, Mudsdale, let's go!" Hapu said, sending out Mudsdale.

"Go, Primarina!" Hau said, sending Primarina back out.

"Mudsdale, use Heavy Slam!" Hapu instructed. Mudsdale's body became metallic, and charged at Primarina.

"Primarina, use Hydro Pump!" Hau instructed. Primarina fired Hydro Pump at the charging Mudsdale, who hardly seemed fazed, as it slammed into Primarina.

"Here we go Mudsdale!" Hapu said, as she did the pose for Ground Type Z Moves. Mudsdale was then enveloped in Z Power, "Go, use Tectonic Rage!" Mudsdale then unleased the full force Z Move, which was successful in knocking out Primarina.

"Primarina is unable to battle, the winner is Mudsdale!" the referee declared, as Hau recalled Primarina.

"Now it's one Pokémon each," one of the spectators commented.

"Alright, Glaceon, let's go!" Hau said, sending out a Glaceon.

"Glaceon, the Fresh Snow Pokémon, an Ice Type, and one of many evolved forms of Eevee. It can instantly freeze any moisture in the atmosphere around it. It does so to create ice pellets to shoot at it's prey," Rotom said.

"Ice Type Pokémon have an advantage over Ground Type Pokémon, but we'll see," Will commented.

"Ok, Mudsdale should still be feeling something from Hydro Pump, so let's end this quickly!" Hau said, as he began to do a pose for a Z Move. He made a Zig-zag motion with his arms, and then extended them. Glaceon was then surrounded by Z Power.

"That was the pose for Ice Type Z Moves!" Toby exclaimed.

"Here we go, use Sub-zero Slammer!" Hau called out. Glaceon summoned a massive ice pillar from underneath it. It then fired a beam of icy energy at Mudsdale, trapping it in a massive ice crystal, before it exploded. When the smoke cleared, Mudsdale was knocked out.

"Mudsdale is unable to battle, the winner is Glaceon! Therefore, moving on the semifinals will be Hau, of Iki Town!" the referee declared.

"Nice one Glaceon!" Hau said, high-fiving his Pokémon.

"Well, how bout that?" Hapu said, as she made her way over to Mudsdale, "Thanks a lot Mudsdale, you were great out there," Hapu said, recalling her Pokémon.

"And now, for the final matchup for the Quarter Finals! It will be pitting Will from Mahogany Town against the Island Kahuna, Nanu!" the announcer said.

"Well, I better get down there," Will said, making his way down to the arena, where Nanu was also making his way to.
