After befriending the wild Flaaffy, Dawson and his two pokemon continued on their way. While the sheep pokemon wasn't one that Dawson had planned on adding to his team, she had needed his help. Hopefully he would find a kind soul to gift her to. Often people in the city traded pokemon. It was a common practice, though not one Dawson often engaged in. His pokemon were for life, and they all meant a great deal to him. They were, however, all male. A group of males surrounded by a singular female was unlikely to bear fruitful results. The man didn't want his team to be distracted. The Flaaffy was a clear distraction, given Hephaestus' reaction to her.

His goal was the same. Find a Mudsdale, capture him, and go home. The pokemon was, surely, one to be respected. They were large, strong, and capable. A pokemon like that would always, sooner or later, end up on Dawson's team. He usually sought out pokemon of suchlike descriptions. Their characteristics, understandably, were important for his line of work. As a cop his pokemon were his guarantee that he came home alive. They were his partners, and his trusted companions. The fact that they were taking over his apartment was of little to no consequence to the spiky-haired man.

The http://i.imgur.com/HPRnRgB.png Arcanine bounded over the gulch, his gaze searching-as before. The http://i.imgur.com/HPRnRgB.png black Charizard bellowed out, as if asking any of the pokemon residing within the gulch to challenge him. It didn't surprise Dawson one bit that the fire-type was trying to pick a fight. He was still disgruntled about their encounter with the Flaaffy, and even more disgruntled that Dawson had brought her along. They didn't need a whiny pokemon on their team, let alone one that was pink and fluffy. Grumbling to himself, Xaran swung his great head this way and that as he stared out over the expansive space. The gulch was wide open, and home to many pokemon whom travelled in herds.

The Mudbray, while he had a herd, was not with them at present. He was the leader of his band, and he had seen them to a place of safety before setting out on something of a patrol. Mudbray never roamed far from his herd – he liked to be on hand at any sign of trouble, for he was very protective and not the sort to let anything happen to those he cared for. But he did tend to patrol the area, scanning for problems before they reached his family.

That was his plan before he spotted trouble bounding straight toward him on the back of an Arcanine. Arcanine and Charizard themselves were not commonly seen in the gulch, but Mudbray knew a predator when he saw one. These two were big Pokemon; he would be stupid to gallop straight toward them. But there was a bit of a gully off to their left, dipping down just low enough that a smaller Pokemon like him could fade into its long grass if he lowered his head a bit. It twisted behind them a short way, then rose up on their right as a low ridge. Perfect.

Once in the dip, the Mudbray was careful not to step on anything that would give him away as he came up the ridge on their other side. Only then did he make his move. The jack broke into a gallop as he topped the ridge and sprang for the approaching menace. Now, normally he had something of a workmanlike approach to everything: he believed in getting the job done efficiently and at a smart pace, and he never tired. But seeing a threat to his herd pissed him off just a little bit, and as he cleared the ridge and hit thin air he brayed his obstinate challenge, using high horsepower in an attempt to neutralize the Arcanine – and the most accessible threat – first.

The Mudbray had escaped the trios notice. It would seem that he knew his way around the gulch that he called home. He sought only to protect his herd, and yet neither Xaran or Hephaestus could have possibly known this. All the Arcanine and Charizard would come to ascertain was that the Mudbray was proving to be a threat to both them, and their trainer. The pokemon was far from being a weakling, even in it's un-evolved form. Mudbray was over two hundred pounds in weight, and therefore on equal footing with Dawson's Charizard. However, Xaran could fly and therefore held the advantage by air. It was Hephaestus that was more of a target on the ground, and so the Mudbray directed his attack towards the Arcanine. Out of the corner of his eye the Arcanine saw the Mudbray rushing him. Skidding around to the side, Dawson held on tightly to the tiger-dog's ruff. The last thing he needed was to be knocked off. The Mudbray's speed was rather impressive, and yet could cause the man some serious injury. Hephaestus knew this as well, which was why he barked in agreement as Dawson swung down from his mount.

Xaran swooped down, barely touching the ground, as his trainer leapt on to his back. Dawson was fit, and always ready for a fight. The man stuck to a strict work-out schedule, which often came before all else. Not a day went by where he wasn't thankful for being in shape. The black Charizard veered around overhead so that both he and his trainer could keep a sharp eye on the battle below.

Hephaestus had wheeled about to face his opponent. He would gladly take the Mudbray on. Clearly the horse pokemon didn't realize who he was messing with. Without a second thought, the Arcanine sought to flame broil the weaker pokemon. A jet stream of flame erupted from the Arcanine's jaws, heading straight for the Mudbray. The Arcanine would see whether or not the Mudbray was equipped to take the heat!

Dawson, being Dawson, had a pokeball on the ready. If Hephaestus was successful he could have Xaran sweep low again, just in time for him to make the catch. Was the Mudbray as fast as he appeared, or would Hephaestus take him down?

All the Mudbray could think about was driving the threat away from his home. That an Arcanine and Charizard together were far too strong for him to take on never even crossed his mind. So there was no way he could win – so what? He was a donkey, after all, and their stubbornness was legendary. So he decided to try, come what may, and began his assault by trying to tackle the Arcanine from the air.

Tragically, he missed. Arcanine saw him and veered aside, taking his human rider with him, and the Mudbray snorted in disgust with himself. That never should have happened. Oh well – he was landing (unfortunately not on the Arcanine), twisting to meet his opponent. Not being airborne, the fire-type had spun around faster than the Mudbray could, and in just a moment he was literally firing away.

Turns out, the Mudbray was not in fact equipped to take the heat. Had he landed half a second earlier, he probably could have got traction fast enough to spring out of the way, but his hooves were just hitting the dirt when Arcanine torched him. If he was looking to charbroil the Mudbray, he had achieved his dream. The jack hit the dirt and stayed there, smoking a bit. Not dead – he was obviously still breathing, just very well-toasted. Maybe he clung to life through sheer stubbornness.

In any case, he had apparently picked the wrong Arcanine to pounce on. Oops.

Well that had gone... according to plan. As the Mudbray was hit, and went down, even Xaran watched with mild concern. The Mudbray was smoking... oh dear. Hephaestus barked at him, as if he was somehow offended that the donkey pokemon had gone down so easily. What sort of a battle was this? Huffing, Hephaestus sat down, waiting for his trainers further instruction. The Mudbray was still alive, thank Lugia. The Arcanine had not meant to severely injure the Mudbray, merely weaken him. He might have been showing off, just a tad. Shuffling his paws, Hephaestus was well aware that he had done something naughty. At least Dawson could catch the Mudbray now?

Dawson wasn't quite sure what to think. The battle was... well, over (if it could even be called a battle). The Mudbray had fallen hard, and was smoking thanks to Hephaestus' attack. Xaran, as if sensing Dawson's desire, angled downward. Diving down, the Charizard slowed enough for Dawson to drop the pokeball. The red and white ball clinked off of the Mudbray's form. The cop waited to see what would come of the attempted catch. He was fairly sure there wasn't much Mudbray left to fight the capture. He needed a good, long, rest. The Pokemon Centre would have to be their first stop on the way back; the last thing Dawson needed was to discover the poor Mudbray had croaked inside of his pokeball. Why did his pokemon all have to be so overeager and full of testosterone?

Xaran made low circles around where the Mudbray had once laid. If the capture was unsuccessful the Charizard would, gladly, have a go at the donkey. If he did then there would, without a doubt, be no Mudbray left. Dawson didn't want to scar the donkey for life. The man hoped that, once the Mudbray came to, he wouldn't give him any trouble about being on the same team as Hephaestus. The Arcanine had meant well, really he had... or so Dawson liked to think.

Dawson drops the ball... lol

Maybe somewhere in the recesses of Mudbray’s unconscious mind, he heard Hephaestus bark at him. A bit of skin on his shoulder twitched, and that was all. If the Arcanine wanted more of a response, he was going to be very disappointed. Dawson, on the other hand, would find that the broiled donkey offered no resistance to his pokeball. Indeed, it bonked off his side, and the Mudbray vanished in a beam of red light. When he came to he would undoubtedly be mad, but for right now he was the very definition of an easy catch.

Poor toasted Mudbray.

Congratulations! You caught the dead wild Mudbray!

The Mudbray was sucked inside of the pokeball, it's form turning into a mesmerizing stream of red light. Hephaestus and Xaran both watched, entranced by the prospect of a new teammate. Dawson too watched, much more silently than the loud mouth-breather's at his side. The pokeball stilled, there not having been so much as a brief shake of resistance. The catch was made, confirmed by the thrum of completion. Dawson swung down off of his Charizard's back in order to pick up the Mudbray's pokeball.

It was time to go home.

Hephaestus was the one to carry Dawson back. Getting back up into the saddle, so to speak, Dawson instructed the Arcanine to head home. Xaran, as before, flew overhead. The Charizard kept a close watch for any possible, impending, threats. The black beast doubted there would be any resistance on the way, but Ho-Oh only knew. Not anticipating any trouble, Dawson, for once, allowed himself to get lost within his own head. Hephaestus was watching every little movement on the ground and so it was safe for the cop to take a moment for himself.

The Mudbray would make a fantastic addition to his rapidly growing team. The cop planned to train him up, like all the rest, so that he may evolve into a powerful Mudsdale. Dawson, like many trainers, enjoyed working hard alongside his pokemon. The man never asked of them what he himself would not do. If they were exhausted, and huffing and puffing, than so was he. He matched his pokemon, every step of the way. The Mudbray would soon come to see that he had chosen a trainer who would, regardless of all else, support him through thick and thin.
