In an instant, the Stantler had sidestepped the confuse ray and was now rushing at Solomon as he fell back down to the earth. There would be no dodging this attack. Solomon had no way to move or gain any momentum. Take down was a powerful, but reckless attack. With the Stantler getting so close, Hudson now hoped that Solomon would be able to launch a successful counter attack off (if he survived the hit). As Solomon fell closer and closer to the ground and the Stantler reached closer and closer to his target, Hudson quickly sprung into action.

"Use thunder wave!" Hudson yelled, cupping his hands around his mouth to amplify his voice projection. Solomon managed to hear the command as he plummeted towards earth bellow. He charged up the electricity in his bulbs and emitted a thunder wave just as the Stantler landed a direct hit with his take down. Solomon's tiny fish body went flying back and slammed hard against the rough trunk of a tree. The angler Pokemon let out a loud grown of pain as he flopped down onto the ground. That attack was even somehow more painful than the one before it. Solomon carefully tried to struggle back onto his feet. He had just a tiny bit of energy left, and his gills felt dry and painful as they continued to try and suck whatever moisture from the air that they could. Even a weak blow would be enough to knock Solomon unconscious. As Hudson and Solomon both looked over at the Stantler, they could only hope that their latest attack would be successful. Would the Stantler easily avoid their efforts once again? Would Solomon's sacrifice be all for naught? Only time tell.

As the Chinchou fell back towards the earth, he somehow managed a second attack? The physics of it all was puzzling to the Stantler. All he knew was that as he struck the Chinchou, the Chinchou in turn struck him. The Stantler staggered back as the thunder wave racked his body. He reared up, wincing as electricity wove it's way through his form. His muscles felt stiff, especially as his hooves landed back on the ground. The Stantler shook his head, pawing at the ground. No, he had to shake this off! Taking another step back, the Stantler winced yet again. Eyes firmly shut tight, he cracked them open to see the Chinchou upon the ground. It was a weaker pokemon, it couldn't get the better of him. In an effort to save himself, the Stantler shot out a confuse ray.

The Stantler feared being caught by humans. He wanted to be free, among the trees and the fresh air. The forest was his home and therefore he had no desire to be pulled from it. He belonged here. Secretly he watched over the weaker pokemon, despite the fact that they feared him. He used this fear to his advantage, watching them silently from the shadows. No one bothered him and he, in turn, rarely bothered them. He didn't deserve this-to be treated as this boy was treating him. It was too much for him to bear. The thought of this humans cruelty kept him going. A little thunder wave from a water-type was not going to be the death of him.

The attack was a success, Hudson realized as the Stantler's legs tensed and its horns slammed down into the dirt. The wild beast was now paralyzed, hopefully meaning that about half the time it wouldn't be able to move and therefore unable to attack. At least they had a chance now. Hudson looked over at Solomon and gave him a proud and assuring smile. Even though Solomon wouldn't win this battle, he was proud of how brave he was to go up against the Stantler.

Too weak to even attempt to dodge any sort of attack at this point, all Solomon could do was brace himself for the confuse ray that was surely about to hit him. The ray passed through him and suddenly Solomon couldn't even tell what was left or right. Stars danced across his vision and the trees started to move about, sliding across the hard dirt of the forest pathway. He felt dizzy and disoriented, but tried to maintain focus on where the Stantler was standing.

"Try and hit it with a water gun," Hudson suggested, clenching his fists and hoping the poor Chinchou wouldn't just end up hurting itself. Whatever the outcome of the attack, Hudson knew that Solomon had tried his best and that was all that mattered.

Solomon squinted its eyes and attempted to fire off a water gun, using whatever energy and moisture he had left in his body. Despite him being able to start the attack, it was going to leave him essentially defenseless to any counterattack.

The Chinchou couldn't keep this up much longer. The Stantler had barely gotten started, though the Chinchou's Thunder Wave would prove to be a major setback. At the command to attack him further, the Stantler snarled in response. As the attempt to hit him with a Water Gun was made, the Stantler was shot right in the face. Shaking his head, with the rest of his form to follow, the Stantler found himself ready to retaliate. The recoil from the Take Down had left him winded, and so he wound't make that mistake twice... No, he had to try to preserve his energy, though such was proving to be cumbersome. The paralysis would soon leave him completely bound. If he was going to attack, it had to be now... if he could manage to...

The Stantler lowered his head, horns at the ready. The larger deer pokemon moved forward to attempt a Zen Headbutt. He resisted the urge to cry out as the electric currents continued to fizzle around his form. He was going to put this Chinchou to rest. Enough was enough. This battle would, hopefully, be over. The young man had effectively wasted his time, and so he wished nothing more than to wander back into the forest whence he came.

The deer pokemon sought to prove that he was a formidable foe. He felt as if, despite all that had come to pass, he had done a fair job. The trainer had been forced to take him, and this battle, seriously. Maybe, just maybe, the boy had learned something from all of this. If not, well, it wasn't the Stantler's job to educate inexperienced brats.

Despite the fact that the Stantler was hurtling straight at him, Solomon couldn't help but smile. Despite all the damage he had received, he had managed to land that second hit. He shut his eyes just before the zen headbutt made impact. The force of the blow sent him flying back once more, this time landing on a patch of grass, completely unconscious.

Quickly, Hudson made his next move, choosing to send Ophelia http://i.imgur.com/3GWps2U.png into combat. He would wait one moment to recall the defeated Solomon back into his pokeball, he wanted Ophelia to see what the stantler had done.

When Ophelia first emerged from her pokeball, she was not happy. The goldeen flopped about on the ground, struggling to understand why Hudson would send her out onto dry land! She would be fine for a decent amount of time, yes, but it was so embarassing to be thrashing about like this. She was meant for the seas, showcasing her beautiful, shimmering scales and elegant fins as she swam about gracefully. Her anger was soon redirected, however, when she saw her friend Solomon on the ground, battered and beaten. Although Ophelia had her many faults, no one could deny that she would fight till the bitter end to protect or avenge her friends.

She looked eyes with the Stantler, knowing that he must've been the one who had hert Solomon, and she jumped into action without instruction from her trainer. Ophelia was more experienced in combat than her other two counter parts. And although she was literally a fish out of water at the moment, the Stantler was paralyzed, meaning that they were on a much more even playing field mobility wise.

Ophelia bounced herself up into the air, and fired down a burning hot scald attack onto the Stantler. It was more powerful and voluminous than Solomon's water gun, it would take more than a simple shake to recover from it.

As, Ophelia jumped into action, Hudson quickly recalled Solomon to his pokeball. The chinchou desereved a long rest and some treats when he was feeling better. Hudson thought that his pokemon had fought very bravely today, despite the fact that the Stantler was much more powerful than him.

The Stantler was relieved at the disappearance of the Chinchou. He thought that maybe now he could lumber off somewhere and rest. This trainer, however, had other plans. He wasn't done, despite the fact that the Stantler was exhausted. Was he trying to kill him? The Stantler was beginning to think so... He attempted to turn around, but the paralysis locked him in place. Wincing, the Stantler shut his eyes tightly, oblivious to the fact that the Goldeen was readying her attack.

The Goldeen, infuriated by the fall of her teammate, bounced up into the air and used scald. The Stantler cried out as his entire body began to burn hot. The great Stantler fell over on his side, feeling as if the world had turned on him. Why was this happening to him? He was a King!

He was exhausted from fighting three pokemon. He couldn't go on any longer. All he wanted was to rest. If he wound up captured, so be it. This was, clearly, to be his fate. This evil trainer and his pathetic pokemon had teamed up on him, and taken him down. Were they happy? Pff. Fools. Someday he would get his revenge on them. Someday...

The Stantler crashed to the ground, out cold. The world about him went black, as if he were slipping into a dream. Then, all was lost. The Stantler passed out. In his unconscious state he was left out, in the middle of nature, unable to defend himself any longer.

The Wild Stantler was defeated!

When the Stantler was finally defeated, Hudson let out a breath of relief. It had been an extremely difficult battle, but he and his team were victorious. He recalled Ophelia back into her pokeball before she could have the chance to try and attack the Stantler's unconscious body. Hudson merely wanted to defeat the beast, not seriously harm it. Once Ophelia was safe inside her pokeball, Hudson continued on the trail once more.

He had learned a two valuable lessons today. The first being that he always needed to be prepared before heading out into a new location. If he didn't have Ophelia in that situation he would've been in a lot of trouble. The second lesson was that he needed to take battles more seriously, or else his pokemon would continue to get needlessly hurt like Solomon was. They didn't have time to point and laugh when they could be planning their next attack.

With a new mindset and even more determination in his step, Hudson quickened his pace as he headed for Primrose Town. He was going to heal up his pokemon, buy some more supplies and rest the night before continuing his journey. He had a long way to go before he could become a strong water-type trainer, but after today he was one step closer to that goal.
