Out of all places to train, Hudson had to choose Mangrove Marsh. It was a hasty decision he was already regretting, as he trudged through the muddy ground deeper into the swamp. Still, it was the only place with a climate similar enough to Plumeria to be adequate enough for training (Hudson was hesitant to enter the jungle itself- too many grass types for his liking). The thick, humid air and the midday heat seared the back of Hudson's neck, and sweat was already starting to form all over his body.

It was so hot it seemed as if all the wild pokemon had disappeared into their dens and hiding spots to cry and cool off. Not a single pokemon could be seen, only the gentle hum of Yanmas reminded Hudson that some creatures did indeed call this hell hole home. The deeper Hudson into the marsh Hudson went, the wetter the air became, the thicker the mud got and the stronger the stench of rotting wood and Weepinbell bile grew even more repugnant.

Finally, Hudson arrived at a spot that he deemed suitable for training. A decent sized, wide patch of dry (dry being a word used very loosely, it was more like damp mud) land that gave way to a massive bog dotted with mangrove trees, rotting logs and tall weeds on one side and a shallow, dark green, murky lake on the other. There were no trees on the mud, so Hudson would have to suffer through the next few hours without shade, but he knew that this was the perfect open space to train.

If Hudson ever wanted to become a strong water-type trainer, he was going to have to push himself and his pokemon. Right now his team was a weird assortment of water types. Overall, they all had a good heart and the right intentions, but some of them weren't exactly obedient or preferred goofing off rather than training. To become a respected trainer, or breeder or type-speciallist Hudson knew you needed gym badges. Plumeria was probably the best place to start since it had easy to beat rock types and more difficult to battle grass-types. It would be a good challenge for his team. Hudson wouldn't be ready for his first gym battle until his pokemon had some experience under their belts first.

Hudson set his backpack down on the driest patch of dirt he could find and pulled out his pokegear. He turned his VS Seeker app on and set the gear back down. While he and his team trained it would broadcast a signal letting any other nearby trainers know that he wanted to battle. Hudson pulled the pokeball that belonged to his Wingull, Bartholomew, and pressed the button to open it. The bird appeared on the mud in front of Hudson in an instant. Bartholomew flapped his wings a handful of times and looked over at his trainer in protest. It was sooooo hot!

"I know I know! I don't like it here either," Hudson admitted, squatting down to look at Bartholomew more closely. "But we gotta get used to places like this. We're gonna explore and battle in a lot of places we won't like, so we gotta power through it."

Bartholomew cocked his head slightly in response, but seemed to agree, or at least understand, with what Hudson was saying. He let out a little upbeat sounding squawk and flapped his wings again.

"Alright then. Let's work on your aim first," Hudson said with a grin, pointing over at dead mangrove tree that stuck out from the bog to their left. "Circle around that tree and try and hit it with as many water pulses as you can, alright."

"Wiiii! Wi Gull!" Bartholomew chirped back before taking off in flight. When he fired off his first water pulse and missed, Hudson let out a sigh. They were going to be out here for a long time.

Jace had thought he'd known what to expect of the marsh. Two routes back home in Kalos were wet, marshy areas that he'd thought would be similar to this. Jace had thought wrong. This place was humid, sticky and smelled like the worst combination of mud and rot and other things he wasn't sure he wanted to identify. "Gross. Saia wait up. I lost my shoe." Above him, Saia was scouting for dangers but the Noibat circled back the moment Jace called out to her. She watched from the sky as he fished his shoe out of the mud and dumped mud out of it. She let out a chittery little laugh at the look on his face as he pulled his shoe on and he shot her a mock scowl. "Keep it up and I'm gonna throw this shoe at you when you're not looking." His threat only earned him more laughter and he scooped a small handful of mud up which he tossed in her general direction.

The Noibat was easily able to avoid the mud ball (Jace knew she would) and circled around him, still laughing at his predicament. When he scooped up another handful of mud and threw it at her she dodge again but in doing so she was struck from behind by a blast of water. She lost her rhythm and tumbled from the air into the mud. Jace immediately scooped her up and she let out a screech, flapping to escape his grip. He let her go and, though weighed down by mud, the Noibat sped off in the direction the water had come from, ready to give whatever had hit her with such a sneaky attack a piece of her mind. "Saia! Stop. Get back here!" Jace called after her to no avail. Hoping they weren't getting in over their heads, Jace scrambled after her.

It didn't take long for Saia to find the culprits. She rounded a tree to find a human and a Wingull. It was easy to guess that the Wingull was responsible for the attack and she focused on him, ready to attack in revenge. "Don't you dare!" She stopped what she was doing at the sound of Jace's voice and glared down at him. "You can't just attack out of the blue, Saia. You know better. Now get down here." Still fuming, the Noibat glided down and circled her trainer, chattering her annoyance and shooting dirty looks at the Wingull. With Saia under control for the moment, Jace could focus on the other trainer. "Sorry about her. I think your Wingull hit her with an attack on accident. She was, understandably, annoyed." He explained, trying not to feel embarrassed by the fact he was splattered with mud and probably looked like he couldn't control his pokemon.

It seemed as if Bartholomew's accuracy was improving, albeit very slowly. Hudson mused that when they first started the wingull would hit his target about half of the time, and now they were at a solid sixty percent, maybe even sixty-five. Still, misses were misses, and Hudson knew they would keep having to practice a lot more (which probably meant coming back out here every day for the foreseeable future). As if to validate his assessment, Bartholomew's latest water pulse missed the tree trunk by a solid two feet and shot off into the treeline ahead.

Neither of them thought much of it, until a suddenly a loud screech emitted from the trees. The mangrove leaves shook and a large rustling noise followed soon after. Bartholomew let out a squawk of concern and flew over towards his trainer. Another high pitched screech blasted through the air and Hudson covered his ears. What the hell was that? Was a angry feraligatr about to burst from the treeline and rip them apart? A Victreebell that would spray them with corrosive acid? A-

Something airborne busted through the treeline It was a... Tiny purple bat thing? Certainly not the fearsome creature Hudson was expecting. Soon, a blonde haired trainer ran out after it, calling its name. Shae maybe. He couldn't quite tell. Whatever it was, it seemed pissed off, specifically at Bartholomew. Bartholomew flapped its wings and landed on Hudson's shoulder, cowering from the bat's venomous gaze. Hudson maintained his focus on the trainer however.

"Oh, no don't worry. It's my fault. I should've made sure he was more careful," Hudson said, a tad embarrassed, in response to the other trainer's apology. He could tell Bartholomew was very nervous about the situation. The bird kept shifting his weight and let out a small caw, so Hudson brought up one hand to gently pet the bird's back. He smoothed the ruffled feathers down, and Bartholomew seemed to calm down.

"We were just doing some training," Hudson continued, offering up an explanation. "I didn't really think that anyone else would be all the way out here."

Hudson eyed the other trainer, his innate curiosity taking over. What was this guy doing out here anyways? What kind of pokemon did he have? He had never seen or heard of a purple bat pokemon, maybe it was exotic. Those and a few other questions swirled around in Hudson's mind, but he managed to avoid asking any of them. Instead, he settled for a less invasive one.

"What's your name?" Hudson asked, flashing a bright smile. "I'm Hudson."

The other trainer's apology and explanation earned him a a chuckle from Jace. "Oh don't worry about it. Accidents happen. I think her biggest issue is that the attack could have hit me more than the fact she was hit. She's really over-protective." Of course, getting all muddy probably hadn't helped her attitude any. "We're really only out this far because I sort of got us lost. Managed to take a wrong turn somewhere but what's life without a little adventure right?" He added with a laugh. He might have preferred an adventure in a little bit nicer location but the marsh wasn't really so bad...if you could ignore the heat and marshy smells long enough to enjoy it.

Saia, sensing that her opportunity to get back at the Wingull was slipping away, gave a couple of annoyed squeaks and difted down to cling to Jace's back and peer over his shoulder at the other trainer. Jace shifted slightly to adjust for her weight and decided he definitely needed a shower when they got back to some form of civilization. "I'm Jace and this little attitude with wings is Saia. It's nice to meet you Hudson." He introduced himself with a smile and a nod. He fell silent a moment and considered what to do next. He could just go on his way and leave Hudson to his training or.... "Hey, since we're both out here looking to train our pokemon a bit how about we have battle?" He suggested and Saia nodded enthusiastically from his shoulder.

Jaisen's proposition for a battle was very tempting. What better way to train for a gym battle than through actual combat? Still, Hudson was a tad hesitant, he wasn't sure how strong his pokemon were. Would it even be a fair fight? The purple bat looking pokemon on his shoulder seemed like it would be the same level of strength as his own, but still. Who knew what other pokemon he had? Hudson was a bit of a risk taker though, and quickly the little voices in his head telling him to hesitate were silenced.

"Yeah, that sounds great actually," Hudson answered after a moment of hesitation. Bartholomew cawed in worry, did he really want to have to face the pokemon he had just pissed off in battle. The bird pokemon knew there was nothing he could do to change his trainer's mind on this, so he remained on Hudson's shoulder. Hudson turned and walked back several yards on the large strip of mud, to give their pokemon enough space to battle between them.

"How about we each use three each? Or maybe two? It's up to you!" Hudson said as he reached into his bag, examining his pokeballs and deciding which of his pokemon he would be using to battle today.

Jace grinned as the other trainer accepted his challenge. His second proper battle in Eden would, hopefully, turn out better than the last one had. Sure, he'd defeated his opponent's pokemon, but the girl had run off with the ticket guaranteeing him a room for the night...the ticket she'd said would go to the winner. And he'd ended up sleeping in the woods that first night because the pokemon center had been too crowded and the inns and hotels were all full up. Since he hadn't had time to make it to the next town, he'd set up a small camp in the woods and slept there for the night. "Great! And hmm...three sounds good. None of my pokemon are very strong though. They're all still pretty new and I haven't had many opportunities to battle with them, though. Do you have three pokemon of about equal strength to use? If not we can always use only two or even do just a one on one." He suggested, hoping that Hudson had three pokemon. It would give Jace an opportunity to work with more of his team but if not he'd just have to find other chances to battle.

"Since I issued the challenge I'll pick my pokemon first if that's okay with you." Jace said as Hudson stepped away. Saia shifted on Jace's shoulder but he put a hand up to stop her. "Not yet; you'll get your chance to battle but let's start with someone else first shall we?" Saia gave a dismayed squeak but settled back to see what Jace had in mind. She eyed the bird still perched on the other trainer's shoulder. She would get her chance. She just had to be patient. As the other trainer looked over his pokeballs, Jace was also running over what pokemon he had with him. He knew he'd eventually use Saia but that still left two others to work with as well. He didn't know what other pokemon his opponent had and he was possibly putting himself at a disadvantage by making the first choice of pokemon. But he had a couple pokemon that Hudson might not have a type to counter them. "Alright Naydra, let's see what you've got." He called, grabbing a pokeball and tossing it into the air. A slim, snake-like dragon pokemon appeared in the muck giving a brief, disgusted look to his surroundings before settling his intense gaze on the other human, waiting to see what he would be up against.

Truth be told, Hudson was a tad nervous. He had never been in a proper trainer battle before, so he wasn't quite sure how well it was going to go. Sometimes even fights with wild pokemon gave him a run for his money (one painful experience with a stantler in Hawthrone Woods came to mind). How was he going to handle a battle with pokemon that had some extra assistance with their trainer? Hudson took a deep breath, and decided that he would just have to trust in himself and his pokemon. Besides, even if he lost, the experience would be valuable moving forward. Didn't people say that you only learn something when you mess up? He couldn't really remember.

"Yeah that sounds great. Most of my pokemon don't have much battle experience either, so I think it should be a fair fight," Hudson responded with a reassured grin, that was one less thing he had to worry about. Hudson nodded when Jaisen said he would pick his pokemon first. It might give him a bit of an edge, to pick a pokemon that could counter its typing. Watching as Jaisen tossed a pokeball out in front of him, Hudson tensed up. If it was a grass type, he was probably screwed. He relaxed a tiny bit once he saw what his pokemon was, a dratini. Hudson was vaguely familiar with the dragon-type, as it was native to Johnto, his home region.

Hudson analyzed his options briefly before deciding on what pokemon he would use in response. Hudson grabbed a pokeball from his bag, and gently lobbed it into the air in front of him. "Let's go Berg!" With a flash of red, the seel appeared on the ground.

Upon seeing his surroundings, Berg cried out in disgust. The gross, brown mud was sticking to his once perfectly groomed white coat, and the hot, thick air was making him sweat and his throat feel dry. He liked the cold, not this god awful heat. He turned back to look at Hudson and started to bark. "Why?! Why would you bring me to this filthy place?"

Hudson wasn't quite sure what Berg was saying, but he could tell that the seel was very upset. Hudon knew that Berg was a little.... Prissy, so maybe he was mad about the mud. Regardless of whatever Berg was trying to say, Hudson was a tad embarrassed. First Bartholomew was so careless that it hit a random pokemon with a water gun, and now Berg was throwing a bit of a temper tantrum because it didn't like the sludgy ground? Hudson could feel his face start to turn pink.

"Oh shut up! I've been out here for HOURS!" Bartholomew suddenly squawked angrily from his perch. "You can handle battling in the mud for ten minutes!"

Berg sent Bartholomew a death glare, but stopped talking and turned back around to face Naydra and her trainer. The seel figured the sooner the fight was over, the sooner it could go back into the comfortable interior of his pokeball. Regardless of that, however, Berg decided that Hudson better reward him with a nice ice bath and some treats later on. Hudson sighed in relief, whatever Bartholomew had said to Berg, it had calmed him down.

"Alright, Berg, use stockpile!" Hudson said, thinking that boosting Berg's already solid defenses would be a good way to start the battle off. Berg shut his eyes and started charging up some energy to be stored until it would be needed later on. For now, it would be used to provide a bit of a buffer to lessen the damage dealt by any of his enemies' attacks.

Jace wasn't entirely thrilled with the choice of pokemon his opponent made. Though Seel was purely a water type, it had access to a handful of ice type attacks that would be super effective against Naydra. His first thought was to either withdraw the Dratini and replace him with another pokemon or to have him use Dragon Tail and send the Seel back to be replaced with something else. But Jace refused to back down like that and the chance of ending up facing something equally as effective when using a move like Dragon Tail was high enough that he didn't want to risk it.

Of course, it was possible that Jace might be able to win if the Seel didn't listen to it's trainer. Considering the way it turned away from it's opponent to yell at Hudson it was a possibility that they didn't work well as a team. Whatever was going on, Jace didn't comment or try to intervene in anyway. It wasn't his place and whatever issue there was in the group needed to be resolved by them. Once things had settled, they were finally down to their battle. Hudson's first move was to boost the Seel's defense. Jace had the option of undoing that with Naydra's Leer attack but that didn't seem like it would accomplish much aside from buying time. Besides, he had a second option that would be better suited for use later in the battle when the stat changes would be the most effective. For now, he had other plans. "Let's make things interesting, shall we? Use Supersonic." Naydra immediately started to produce a strange sound wave that would, hopefully, confuse the Seel and cause it to have trouble attacking for a time.

Hudson watched intently as Jaisen analyzed his options. How would he respond to his dratini being pitted against a pokemon with ice moves? Of course, type match ups weren't everything. Hudson knew that strategy, teamwork (between a trainer and his or her pokemon) and a little bit of luck were also a big part in determining who would win the battle. Still, Hudson wouldn't be shocked if his opponent simply recalled his dratini and sent out a pokemon that was better suited to taking on Berg. Instead, Jaisen opted to keep his current pokemon in battle, and they made their first move.

While Hudson's ears were incapable of detecting the high pitched and distorted sound waves that the dratini emitted, Berg was not so lucky. The seel let out a cry of pain and snapped his eyes shut as the random and varied frequencies assaulted his ear drums. When Berg's eyes finally reopened, the world was wobbling back and forth as if the earth was some giant see-saw. He couldn't even quite tell where his enemy or even his trainer were. The trees wiggled and squirmed as if they were giant worms. Berg started to bark again, and slammed his flippers against the ground, as if that would cause him to regain his focus.

Hudson winced, he hated seeing his pokemon assaulted with moves designed to mess with their senses. It was sad seeing them in such confusion and pain. He had to push on if he wanted to win the battle though, so his mind quickly went back to calculating his response. "Berg, try using aqua ring!"

Berg barely made out the sound of his trainer's voice over the incessant ringing in his ears. Instead of listening, however, he just let out a little yelp. Why couldn't he just go back inside his pokeball? Berg continued to squirm, keeping his eyes shut very tightly to try and block out the dizzying world.

"Concentrate Berg! I need to you to fight as hard as you can," Hudson pleaded, his checks growing very red with embarrassment. Why couldn't Berg just listen? Bartholomew, still sitting on Hudson's shoulder, cawed in annoyance. This seel was making a fool out of his trainer and by extension, him. "Berg, please. I promise I'll take you to the salon or something after this if you listen to me."

As if on cue, small streams of murky water were pulled up out of the lagoon to the lake that lined one side of the impromptu battle field. Although they moved slowly and shakily, Berg managed to move them to where they formed thin, translucent rings around him. Once Berg was injured, he'd be able to draw energy from this water to restore a small portion of his health. Hudson was relived that Berg finally decided to listen to him, but still felt irritated that he had to bribe the seel to accomplish this.

The supersonic had worked but there was no guarantee that the Seel would be unable to attack or would mess up so badly that it would hurt itself. Still, a chance, no matter how small, was better than nothing. Both trainer and pokemon watched the interaction between the Seel and his trainer. Whether it was the confusion or lack of trust neither could say but it took a moment for the Seel to respond to Hudson's order. Naydra shifted his body in the mud and glanced back at Jace. He and the boy weren't close, they barely knew each other really, but it had never occurred to him to disobey Jace during their brief training sessions.

Aqua Ring was an annoying, but manageable, move. They just had to deal more damage than the circle of water would restore. It would take time, but they could chip away at the Seel's health little by little. Naydra didn't have very many super effective moves but he knew one that would certainly work. "Alright, playtime is over. Hit him with Shock Wave." The Dratini blinked once and built up an electric charge around the small horn on his head before releasing it in a burst of crackling sparks that arced toward the disoriented Seel with uncanny accuracy.

Berg didn't even realize the blast of electricity was coming towards him until it was far too late. The attack shocked the poor seel, making his hair stand up on end and zapping his insides. The super effective move definitely did a big chunk of damage, although his boosted special defense helped take the edge off. Berg gritted his teeth as the last of the shock wave passed through his body, leaving behind a great deal of pain. He had even recovered from his confusion yet, so the world was still spinning on top of his wounds.

Hudson pondered his options again, this battle definitely was not going well. He hadn't anticipated that the dratini would've known an electric attack. With Berg still confused, Hudson decided it was safer to play defensively. "You've got this Berg, use hail!"

Now this was an idea Berg could get behind. Nothing felt better to him than a nice chilly breeze and a frozen slurry raining down from the sky. Much better than the dreadful heat and humidity of this marsh. Luckily, Berg managed to stick his head up and fire the condensed ball of water and ice up into the sky. It burst into a beautiful array of sparkling, white and powder blue crystals that scattered across the sky. Soon, bright white clouds formed, blocking out the sun and shedding a light shower of small ice pellets down onto the ground. Although they were the size of small pebbles and melted as soon as they touched the ground, Husdon knew it would still be a major nuisance to the dragon type they were facing.

A few bits of hail struck Berg, melting into his skin and restoring a small portion of his health thanks to his ice body ability. Some of the aqua ring that still hovered around Berg also traveled to his skin and healed him a bit. On top of that, Hudson had given the seel some leftovers to hold onto, which Berg quickly took a small bite out of to further heal himself yet again. With a solid chunk of his health recovered, Berg shut his eyes once more to block out the revolving horizon and to brace himself for the dratini's next attack.

Hail was an annoyance Jace wasn't sure he wanted to deal with. Especially not when it was Naydra on the field. Jace had a couple of options. Leave Nayrda in the battle and hope for the best or switch out for Boreas or Solas who wouldn't be bothered by the hail. But after watching the Seel be pelted by the hail and not be bothered by it, Jace had another idea. "Naydra return. Mim, you're up." The Dratini disappeared in a flash of light, glad to be out of the muck and saved from the hail for the time being.

In place of the Dratini appeared a a pink blob that, in the blink of an eye, turned into a slightly pink-toned Seel. Mimic, clapped its new flippers together and took a second to consider it's new form. It felt the hail hit the white fur of this new body but it didn't cause any pain which was nice. Jace gave a slight nod at how things were looking so far. This was the first time he'd ever tried to battle with Mimic so he hoped things would turn out alright in the end.

Well, Hudson had anticipated that Jaisen might switch out his pokemon, but he definitely didn't think a ditto would be the replacement pokemon. Within moments, the pink blob transformed itself into an almost identical copy of Berg. It was a little weird, seeing the other 'seel'. It clapped its flippers and seemed to be smiling. Hudson narrowed his eyes, not quite understanding what the play here was. Pretty much all of Berg's moves would be ineffective against the transformed ditto, but that also meant that the ditto's moves would be ineffective against Berg. It was a bit confusing.

Before Hudson could decide on their next move, Berg decided to make the choice for him. Needless to say, the confused seel was very, very, very concerned about his doppelganger. Berg squinted his eyes tightly, trying to block out the spinning world and focus on what looked... Just like him? Did he really look like that? Berg hoped his fur wasn't that ugly shade of pale pink. He would have to examine himself the next time he got a chance to look in the mirror. Right as Hudson was about to settle on what attack they would do next, Berg decided to launch himself at the other seel with an aqua jet.

"Berg wait no don't-" Hudson started, unable to stop the seel from propelling itself into the air with a column of water and smack face first into a rotting tree trunk that was just to the right of the impromptu battle field. With a pathetic sounding plop, Berg fell into the shallow water bellow. Berg cursed himself, he could've sworn he was heading right for his double. Luckily for him, he had his aqua ring, hail and leftovers to restore some of his health. Hudson merely sighed at this point, things were not going well.

Berg hurt himself in his confusion!

Truth be told, Jace didn't really have much of a plan. He was sort of winging it and seeing how things worked out for him. Right now, it seemed to be working alright because Mimic wasn't being hurt by the hail and that was mostly what Jace had been after with this switch. He was vaguely familiar with the moveset of a Seel but even so he pulled up their information on the pokegear to look over his options. He glanced up when the other Seel moved to attack and winced when it slammed face first into a tree. "Ouch. That looked like it hurt." He commented quietly to himself. Well, it had given him a brief moment to decide on a course of action. It was another risky gamble but seeing how moves worked was one of his favorite parts of battling.

Mimic was watching the confused Seel with a seemingly permanent grin on his face. That had been a silly move on the Seel's part. "Okay Mim, focus. Let's try a Perish Song." He wasn't sure the Seel, and thus Mimic, knew that move but he would keep trying until he found one. Mimic tilted its head but gave a happy bark when it realized that was definitely among the moves it had acquired with this new shape. Facing the Seel again, Mimic started barking a strange melody. It wasn't much of a song but it seemed to be working anyway. "Apparently we need to get you some music lessons, Mim." Jace commented and the 'Seel' stuck its tongue out at him. Well, either way, they only had a handful of turns left before both pokemon would faint. Now it was just a matter of seeing how things would play out.

Mimic used Perish Song

Hudson was at a bit of an impasse. He could keep Berg on the field and either have the seel switch out at the last second or let him faint, or he could pull out Berg right now while his health was still relatively high. The second option seemed like the better choice because Berg's confusion would be cured once he was inside his pokeball, plus Jaisen would have to use his dratini again, which Berg would be helpful against.

"Today's your lucky day Berg, return," Hudson said, pressing the button on Berg's pokeball. Berg let out a sigh of relief as the red beam of light struck him and sucked him inside the safety of his pokeball. After putting Berg's ball aside for now, Hudson quickly grabbed his replacement's and tossed out into the field. In an instant, Solomon appeared on the field. The little chinchou's yellow orbs sparked and cackled with electricity and he had a wide grin on his face. Bursting with energy, Solomon used his small legs to hop a tad closer to the 'seel'. He examined it was wide eyes, did Hudson trade Berg away to another trainer?

Hudson noticed his pokemon's confusion and quickly spoke up. "Don't worry Solomon, that guy's just a copy cat." Solomon nodded in understanding and quickly hoped away before the fake Berg could make a move. The angler pokemon kept a close eye on his opponent and flashed a dirty look, ignoring the bit of hail that struck him on the head, he didn't like it when someone would trick him like that. He was the prankster, not the prankee.

Hail: 3/5
