 (!) Even More Trouble..., Aria can't seem to escape the ruins...

It was now late afternoon and Aria really needed to start heading back to town. It would take the entire evening to make it back through Plumeria Jungle and she definitely didn't want to be stuck here at night. She shuddered at the thought, picturing all kinds of evil red eyes blinking in the distance around her. Even though she was very thankful for the time she got to spend with the sweet Natu, she had let a little too much time go by, and she was definitely worried now about getting back before nightfall. Not to mention, Vex might start to worry about her if she didn't make it back by the time she said she would.

She chose to let Tyke back out of his pokéball, not only to help protect her but also to help light the way once the afternoon faded into evening. In one continuous motion she pulled his pokéball off her belt and tossed it in the air in front of her. After a quick flash of light his short, lizard-form materialized and he gave a loud, somewhat obnoxious yawn. "Yeah yeah, me too buddy. We'll be back soon." she assured him, knowing he must be as exhausted as she was after all this training. After a quick double-check of her pokégear and the map, she turned in the direction she needed to go and marched forward, determined to not stop until they were out of the jungle entirely.

Just as they had reached the edge of the ruins, where the thick, humid jungle stretched out before them, a loud thud sounded from nearby. Normally Aria would have jumped from being startled, but her body barely even reacted. "Ugghh! Now what?!" she grumbled, more annoyed than scared. All she wanted was to train her Charmander. All she wanted was some simple training that would get him to his next level. Training wasn't supposed to be easy, she had to keep reminding herself. And now, all she wanted was to get home.

She spun around to examine the source of the noise, hoping it was something unimportant like a rock falling or a piece of stone rolling over from the ruins. If it's a pokémon, well... she'd have to decide if it was worth the risk, as that would ensure she'd be hiking back through the jungle at nighttime.

He would do it this time. He was so close to being able to perfect his use of his psychic abilities and evolve into a formidable Alakazam. He could feel it. He focused his energies on a large boulder, lifting it with his mind and holding it steady in the air in front of him. He took careful aim and blasted a psybeam toward the rock, sure to hit the immobile object and...

THUD!

The rock fell to the ground and his psybeam struck a tree instead of the boulder. Behind him he could hear the laughter of the other Kadabra, those who'd mastered the move ages ago. They were taunting him, mocking him for his inability to focus both on holding the target in place and use a second move to hit it. He hung his head, ashamed. He tried. He trained long after the others went off to lounge with the females and eat berries, trying again and again and again to get it right. But every time he was met with the same result. Maybe he just wasn't good enough. Just like he'd been trying all morning.

Without a word, Kadabra moved off from the rest of his community to train by himself. With so many eyes on him it was hard to focus. Maybe the quiet of the jungle would help. He found a spot where the ruins met the jungle and several large rocks were piled up where a wall had crumbled. With nothing but the sounds of the jungle around him, he kept up his training. He would show them. He wouldn't return to the community until he'd mastered his moves and then he'd show them all how powerful he was.

THUD!

He wouldn't give up. He couldn't. Not when the sneering faces of his fellow Kadabra kept popping into his mind.

THUD!

Again. He had to focus.

THUD!

He wasn't trying hard enough. Again.

Zap! THUD!

Closer that time. He'd hit the rock before it fell. He was getting better. He just had to keep trying.

THUD!

"Ugghh! Now what?!" What was that? There wasn't supposed to be anyone else out here. Kadabra froze when he turned and found a human standing not far off. She had a pokemon with her and she looked tired and annoyed. What were they doing out here? Humans didn't usually come this far into the ruins. He had to think quickly. If she kept going she would walk right into the heart of the community and that...would be bad. Not for his fellow pokemon, certainly. They'd be fine. The human and her tiny lizard? Not so much. He moved to block her path. "You must go no further, human." He told her, unaware that she wouldn't understand him and might think he was trying to challenge her to a battle.

Why do I do this to myself? Because I'm crazy xD

Also, I do sincerely hope you don't mind that I picked this thread up instead of the Hoothoot. I just had inspiration for the Kadabra and not the tinybirb ^^;

Aria gasped when a figure appeared suddenly in front of her, literally in a blur. It was almost as tall as her, just a little over a foot shorter. It was a strange, almost cat-like pokémon but it stood on its legs like a human. It had hands and feet like a human, but a big bushy tail and long whiskers. It also looked... angry? No, maybe not angry, but very serious, like it didn't want to be messed with.

She froze, holding her breath and not moving a muscle. Tyke had come to a stop by her side, standing still but on his guard. Then, as if her heart rate hadn't already spiked through the jungle canopy, she felt a strange numbing sensation in her head and heard a voice. "You must go no further, human." it said, and chills ran down her entire body. Suddenly, she feared for her life.

The strange sensation cleared the second the voice stopped speaking, but the pounding of her heart continued. She was too scared to speak. Instead, her jaw dropped and she began to tremble. Oh god oh god oh god... she was repeating in her brain, until the thought crossed her mind that if it could use telepathy to speak to her, he could probably hear her thoughts just as well. She finally took a breath, realizing she hadn't and needed to, and attempted to speak.

"I- I am... so... sorry. I'm lost, and-" was all she managed to say. She had no idea if this creature would be able to understand her, but she prayed it would. Please, please don't hurt me. she begged internally. Should she take a step backwards to show it she meant no harm? Should she risk turning her back to run? There was just a moment of silence, and Aria remembered something that Vex had taught her during their training.

Not all pokémon were gentle and cuddly. Some wild pokémon want to be left alone, and others are territorial and will fight to protect their homes and families. Some will attack humans even if unprovoked, and Aria needed to be ready for that. She needed to be able to protect herself, to think clearly in a moment of crisis and remember that she had a team of highly-capable pokémon with her. She shouldn't panic, she should be ready to defend herself.

She took in a deep breath, the sound of Vex's voice echoing in her mind and helping soothe her nerves. No, she would not run. She would not step backwards. She knew this was the direction she had come and that she needed to go back this way to get back to town. Nightfall was approaching quickly and the best way to connect two points is a straight line. She was going straight, and if it meant fighting this strange scary pokémon then so be it!

She had to be quick. No hesitation. You can do this, she heard Vex's voice say in her mind, and she smirked. With her eyes locked onto the pokémon's, she jerked her arm back to grab a pokéball from her bag. She knew the pocket it would be in, and feeling the little green pokéball in between her fingers brought her confidence rushing back. Without hesitation she threw the ball forward, calling out his name as it landed.

"Kaepora!" she called, as the Dartrix appeared in a flash before them. "This guy wants to pick a fight with us, what do you say we give him what he wants?" she asked, and grinned. Vex would be proud of her if he could see her right now. Not only did she turn her fear into confidence, she was able to recall which elements would work well against psychic-type pokémon from the lessons he gave her. Dartrix happened to have a few tricks up his sleeve... or feathers, rather.

The first move that came to mind was his astonish. It would certainly catch this pokémon off guard, might even make it flinch, and it happened to be a ghost-type move. Now that Kaepora stood between them, the fear Aria had felt was almost entirely gone. Now it was just pure adrenaline. "Use Astonish!" she ordered, gripping her hands into fists. Kaepora cawed loudly and built up some dark energy. After just a few seconds, he flew forward towards the opponent ready to hit it head on.

The human seemed...afraid. She admitted to being lost. Well that explained why she was this far into jungle. But it didn't change the fact that she could not continue forward. His community would destroy her and her pokemon. he should probably be doing more to scare them off but they weren't hurting anything by being there and as long as they didn't go looking for trouble they'd probably be fine. But then again, she wasn't leaving, even after he'd warned her not to continue. Perhaps...was she after the community? Did she seek to take on his friends and family? Was she hoping to find the Elder One and capture him? He'd oft been told that humans would come seeking the most powerful among them and none were more powerful than the Elder One. If she was thinking to take him on, she'd need more than one little lizard to do it. She'd also have to go through the rest of the community to even have a chance at challenging him. She would lose.

And that's what he was trying to prevent. So he continued to block her path. But the longer they stood there, the more confident the woman seemed. Which was odd. Shouldn't she be getting more nervous? When she moved, he knew his attempts at avoiding conflict were done for. She'd gone for one of those capsules and was releasing some sort of pokemon. It was...some sort of bird. So a flying type for sure. Given it's colors perhaps a grass type as well but he couldn't be certain of that.

Before he could finish his observations, trainer and pokemon were moving into action. He had only a moment to try and dodge but to no avail. He was tired and he'd let himself be distracted by this pokemon he'd never seen before. It hit him with a loud cry and he cried out, staggering backward under the impact. That had hurt...a lot. A ghost type move? From a flying type? He was too stunned by the sheer unexpectedness of the attack to retaliate for a moment.

The Wild Kadabra flinched!

Aria practically jumped in the air. He flinched!! It worked! She was so proud of Kaepora and how far he had come since he was the tiny little broken-winged Rowlet she had found. He was strong, he was always confident in his strength, and he would never admit but he did respect and care for Aria. She grinned, excited.

She was excited, but she also worried about the poor Kadabra. He hadn't made a move yet and Aria wondered if he was even wanting to battle to begin with. Did she jump the gun? In her defense, he seemed very threatening when he showed up in front of her and blocked her path. What was with that anyway? Was he guarding something?

Regardless, they were battling now and that flinch meant she had another chance to attack. Kaepora had landed back at her right side, ready for his next order. She quickly ran through the list of moves he knew in her head. "Alright, Kae... Leaf Blade!" she ordered. She knew it wasn't a ghost or dark-type move but it was his strongest, and he seemed to enjoy that one in particular. Kaepora gave her a swift nod and darted forward with his wings spread out at full span. He cawed loudly and brought his wings down in two swift, sword-like swings.

The Kadabra was less than impressed with the way things were turning out. He was just trying to keep the human and his community safe. He didn't want to battle but this human had attacked him anyway.

Was she trying to catch him? That, he supposed, wouldn't be too bad. Humans were said to help those who proved themselves become stronger. But that meant leaving the community for good. Given he wasn't exactly everyone's best friend he doubted they'd miss him much. And he wouldn't miss their constant teasing and taunts.

He mentally shook away the thoughts, he needed to focus. That was why he couldn't master Telekinesis. he wasn't focusing. He pulled his focus back to the battle too late, however. He had just enough time to try and brace himself against the incoming attack but to no avail. He felt the sword like wings slash at him and the pain was incredible. He'd never felt anything like it. He knew it wasn't a ghost or dark type move, not with a name like 'leaf blade' but it hurt like one, perhaps even more than that. He fell to his knees supporting himself with one hand as he tried to think of what to do. One more hit and he was done for. He'd be a laughingstock if he went down without even trying to fight back!

So he mustered his energy, focusing his psychic abilities into the strongest attack he knew. He didn't dare try to get up from where he was crouched, but instead he sent a full force blast of telekinetic energy. He doubted it would finish the strange pokemon off but it would weaken it. He just had to hope it would be enough to deter the human from continuing further after she defeated him.

Kaepora scored a Critical Hit!
Wild Kadabra use Psychic!

Kaepora was doing so well, Aria made a mental note to spoil him with treats later. Look at them! What a team!! His leaf blade attack had hit and quite hard, it knocked the pokémon down on his knees! Rather than leaping with joy, Aria felt it necessary to stay cool, cross her arms, and smirk instead. She was one proud pokémon Mama right now.

Any minute the defending pokémon would retaliate, and she was right. While on its knees, the pokémon conjured up some type of psychic energy and it burst forward, hitting Kaepora square in the face. Aria gasped, watching as Kaepora was tossed back a good few feet, hitting the ground with a thud. She grit her teeth and clenched her fists, a little more serious now. "You okay?" she let out, unable to see her poor owl in the thick of the jungle brush. After a good bit of rustling however, the owl emerged, his feathers a little roughed up. He gave her a subtle nod, and she nodded back in appreciation.

Aria had to think for just a moment. She had to admit, she was extremely curious about this pokémon and his weird psychic powers. This was the first time in her experience as a trainer she really wanted to catch a pokémon. She wanted to get to know him better and learn all about his abilities. Plus, she thought Vex might think he's cool and he'd be proud of her for catching him. So, she went against her usual nature and pulled an empty pokéball from her bag.

Kaepora looked upset. He hated it when his feathers were ruffled and they were beyond ruffled right now, they were downright dirty. Aria snorted with laughter when she saw the death glare he was giving his opponent. What a tough little owl he is, she thought in the best baby-talk voice she could manage. Then, she studied the wild pokémon to see how weakened he seemed to be. So far, he hadn't gotten back to his feet and he seemed pretty worn out. Maybe this was her best chance?

"Hold on, Kaepora. I'm going to try to catch him." she said, softly enough for Kaepora to hear but not the opponent, although if he could read her mind it didn't matter anyway. She took a few steps forward, coming to a stop just a few feet to the left of Kaepora, and gripped the pokéball in her hand. She grit her teeth again and launched it forward, hoping her throwing arm wasn't too horrible.

When the trainer didn't send her pokemon in to finish him off, Kadabra knew his fate. She was trying to capture him. And he had barely enough strength to keep holding himself upright. There was no way he could fight back.

That didn't mean he wouldn't try, however. As the ball was tossed toward him, he tried with all his concentration to stop it in mid-air. It wavered slightly but kept going. The ball hit him and he was pulled inside in a flash of bright light. He struggled, tried to fight his way free, but with every passing second he felt as though he was growing weaker and weaker. Well...perhaps being with a human wouldn't be too terrible. He'd be away from his community and their leering faces as he tried to master his powers. He'd have the human to help him grow stronger.

Well....maybe this wouldn't be so bad.

1...2...3...Gotcha! The Wild Kadabra was caught!
