Description

Image
ImageTitle/Alias/Nickname*: gladiator
Age: Seventeen
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: Aromantic Pansexual

Species: [Mega] Lopunny

Occupation: Gijinka Hunter

Ability: Cute Charm

Moveset:
Quick Attack- Sparta is able to move with almost inhuman speed to strike first.
Jump Kick- Her roundhouse and standard kicks gain an extra punch.
Dizzy Punch- Sparta's hand-to-hand attacks have a better chance of 'confusing' her opponent.
Foresight- Her moves can hit Ghost-type Gijinka and deflect their typed attacks.
Sparta can only use physical moves to augment her own maneuvers- it appears that she is simply very skilled.

Pokemon:
-Lucario {swords dance, aura sphere, close combat, dragon pulse}
-Hawlucha {hone claws, sky attack, hi jump kick, stone edge}
-Blaziken {sunny day, fire punch, solar beam, shadow claw}
-Heracross {take down, rock slide, megahorn, brick break}

Personality:
Sparta is a fierce warrior, and her personality could not align more with her career. She is an incredibly independent woman, relishing freedom and the ability to make her own choices. She is very much a nomadic person, hating to settle down in one place for too long. As a bounty hunter, she usually flies solo, disliking to take commands from authority. One might say she never outgrew her rebellious teenager phase once she took on the responsibility of a more serious career, and they could be no closer to the truth. While Sparta sees the wisdom in not lashing out for the hell of it, she is often too hotheaded for her own good and rarely hesitates to prove her mettle. As a girl, she longed to become a Gym Leader (fighting types, of course) and is very competitive and ambitious in the manner that many are. She is very confident, almost arrogant, and is stubborn as well- set in her decisions. As hardheaded and fierce as she is, Sparta sees no shame in taking care of her appearance and is sure to remain at her physical best, appearance and health wise. She is still rather naive for her age, but is able to work her way into people's heads with her (subconscious) ability, often using their attraction against them or to get what she wants. With her ambition, Sparta finds no shame or guilt in doing what she must to climb the ladder of power.

Strengths:
✔determined- once she latches onto something, Sparta can rarely be deterred from her goal- leading her to sleepless nights and long expeditions on her hunts.
✔athletic- she is in incredible shape and her fighting skills are ideal in the hunter business- especially when she can't reach her pokemon in time.
✔hardy- Sparta can take extreme conditions and powerful pokemon moves without batting an eye- she's incredibly tough in terms of survival, and rarely complains.
✔loyal- if you meet her standards, Sparta can warm up to you and once you form a bond, she's undyingly loyal. she often holds others to the same standard, however.
✔ambitious- Sparta loves competition, especially when she is assured to win. Power gives her a sense of worth, and she is ready to do anything within her abilities to achieve it.

Weaknesses:
✘unforgiving- Sparta can hold a killer grudge, and to be on the wrong side of one means a very small chance of reconciliation. She often pits herself against you entirely and whatever you stand for.
✘proud- Sparta is rightly confident in her own abilities, but she is often guilty of taking it a bit too far- and never hesitates to indulge in some good trash talking.
✘vain- she values her appearance, but hates to be seen out of her element or looking disheveled- unless it's the glowing sweat and perfect makeup kind.
✘manipulative- Sparta's ability Cute Charm allows her to use attraction against anyone who is attracted to her gender, regardless of their own identity, and she uses it to her own advantage without a second thought.
✘hotheaded- she hates being put down or underestimated for whatever reason, and is very quick to prove herself to anyone who doubts her power.

Appearance:
Sparta is very fit and lean, with the only body fat she seems to possess landing in her curves. Long blonde hair with brunette streaks stays tied up in a long, whip-like braid. Her outfit consists of a black, open-bottom halter top and a utility belt, with ripped black leggings beneath. She also wears tall cream boots, and matching bandage boxing gloves. She bears much less resemblance to her pure Gijinka mother, being able to easily go 'undercover'. However, as a young girl, she admired the fighting spirit coupled with femininity that Lopunny possessed, and dressed like such for multiple years before hunting of Gijinka began. Sparta's human features are nothing less than stunning. Fierce magenta eyes sit atop high cheekbones, and a doll-like nose perches in the middle of her angular face. She has perfect teeth and full lips, and like her Pokemon heritage, she takes pride in maintaining a perfect appearance.
[HEIGHT]- 5'7"
[WEIGHT]- 145 lbs

Gang/Group/Organization*: Hunters of Dallea

Other*: Sparta is only 1/4 Gijinka- her mother was a true Gijinka but her father, concerned for her safety, kept Sparta's Gijinka heritage a secret from even her. Her father became a scientist who studies gijinka, and he cut ties with his daughter as soon as she engaged in an organization so starkly contrasting to what he believed. She despises him (and secondhandly the gijinka he works with) as a result, fueling her hunting.

Sparta didn't accept help lightly, but as the Stantler gijinka emerged from the treeline to join her two Ursaring gijinka opponents, she considered pulling back to the HQ. She knew that it was a couple miles, maybe someone there would notice if she raised enough of a racket. So far the gijinka had knocked out her Hawlucha, and the appearance of the second had finished off Lucario. She didn't have Blaziken with her currently, she'd left him at the HQ. So now it was just her versus three gijinka.

Aiming a powerful kick at the new Stantler, the Hunter hoped that anyone- even a trainer or something- would notice her predicament. Sparta connected, hearing a very satisfactory crunch as the deer-boy crumpled, a couple newly-broken ribs keeping him down for the count. Yanking her phone out of her bag, she dialed the first number she remembered- a fellow Hunter by the name of Adrien Murkos, she believed. "Small woods outside of Cobrapeak. Stantler, two Ursaring. No Pokemon. Send help-" she babbled out, the call ended abruptly by an Ursaring charging and sending her flying backwards. The male of the two bears was massive; a bulky man-creature with unending physical strength. She hissed at the pain, watching in horror as the female crushed the small device under a clawed foot. Hopefully Adrien could get himself in gear before she was bear food.

Adrien's smoking came to an abrupt end as he felt his phone vibrating in his pocket, to which he easily pulled out, lifting it up to the front of him. His eyebrow raised as he heard the shouting on the other end, listening for a moment, until it came to a sudden end. It took him a moment to process what she'd just said before he realized who it was calling, recognizing the number to be Sparta's. He wasn't particularly friendly with her, but she seemed to do well enough as a Hunter, something he'd come to appreciate. He found her more of an acquaintance...a dedicated co-worker? Something along those lines.

"The woods outside of Cobrapeak, huh?" He mumbled to himself, tossing the half finished cigarette he'd used onto the ground, crushing it beneath his feet to put it out. "Seems good enough. May as we'll of ahead and help her."

He reached back onto the belt that sat on his waist, unhooking one of the Pokéballs that hung from it before tossing it out in front of him. A small light escaped from the ball, and then fell back into his hand, where he caught it before slipping it away again. A Noivern formed in front of him, letting out its loud cry before moving down to the front of him, stretching out its wings a bit.

"We're heading out to the woods by Cobrapeak." Adrien said, moving over to the Noivern's side and placing a hand on its back. "It isn't that far, so the fly shouldn't be that bad. You can rest for a while after. Let's head out."

Noivern let out another cry, this time one to let Adrien know he was ready, and his trainer jumped onto its back, getting himself comfortable and then holding onto the fur around its neck and leaning forward. A quick pat on the side let the Pokémon know he was ready, and it immediately jumped up into the air until it was above the buildings of Corapeak and making its way over to the woods. Had Adrien been walking, it would have taken longer than was okay, but luckily, they weren't, and in no time they were moving above the trees, searching for any signs of battle going on. It took several minutes, but Noivern soon caught onto a similar sound, and began to move to the left, before Adrien made out the sight of his caller, and three other Gijinka who'd ganged up on her. A ghost of a grin appeared on his face, and Noivern began to lower before they'd easily landed onto the ground, seeming to startle the Gijinka for a moment.

"I got your call." Adrien said, though he kept his eyes on the Gijinka in front of them as he returned Noivern to its Pokéball and reached for two others. "You're lucky I wasn't busy. Use these." He said, tossing the two he'd grabbed over to Sparta, one holding his Luxray, the other his Pyroar. "They should listen to you since I'm here. Now let's hurry up and get this over with." He said, before grabbing two of his own and tossing them out, a Haxorus and a Weavile appearing before they immediately charged, Weavile's claws darkening as it prepared to use Night Slash on the female Ursaring, and Haxorus's turning a dark purple color before it used Dragon Claw, as it charged towards the male.

Sparta was thankful for the speedy arrival of her... co-worker. The Noivern's landing startled the gijinka, allowing the Hunter to scramble to her feet and send a thankful nod to her savior. He mentioned receiving her call, and she was about to actually thank him before he made his trademark snide comment. "You're lucky I wasn't dead." she muttered in annoyance. She would have been a loss for the Hunters, she liked to believe. Agreeing with his rushed sentiment, she caught the two Pokemon and immediately sent them out.

Trying to remember what sort of moves they would have, Sparta commanded them into action. Hopefully instinct would kick in and she wouldn't have to guide them too much, since they weren't hers. Pyroar leapt at the injured Stantler Gijinka, blasting him with something resembling Flamethrower. The deer creature was quickly down for the count, and Pyroar returned to her side. She glanced over at Weavile and Haxorus, admiring the power of the pair and tucking the Pokeballs she currently held into her small bag. Luckily she still held onto that, which was a blessing she'd taken for granted. Luxray had joined Weavile, a physical attack sure to finish off the beast. Fighting was supereffective against Normal, which was frustrating- her Pokemon had been taken down by sheer luck of the opposing Gijinkas. She hadn't counted on all her Pokemon being out for the count, but the Stantler's Zen Headbutt had knocked them over like dominoes.

Watching in satisfaction as the three Pokemon made short work of her cursed foes, she headed over to the unconscious Stantler. She was a bit softer than most, but the Gijinkas had been ruined for her- her father had abandoned his only daughter to study them, and that did leave Sparta with a bit of a grudge. Squatting down to bind up the scrawny deer-boy, she studied his features. They were almost human- but, the Hunter reminded herself, something quite far off and certainly less than. She hoped Adrien had brought something along to transport two (more) massive Gijinkas, as she'd only prepared for one. Standing up and feeling the pains that had been blocked out by adrenaline, Sparta hissed. Rolling her sore shoulders, she looked at her equipment to see what was damaged. Obviously she had no phone, but all her Pokemon were safely in their balls and besides some bruises and cuts, Sparta was pretty much fine. Granted, she needed a hot shower and good night's sleep, but she'd recover. She always did.

"Thanks for helping out." she managed, swallowing her pride and returning his Pokemon to their balls, and then to him. She wasn't too familiar with the man, but she'd heard about Adrien Murkos through whispers and team members. He was a lone wolf, motivated by money and not afraid to tell people what he thought of them. Not an ideal teammate, but Sparta did have some sort of twisted respect for him after saving her life. She sighed, figuring she should head back to the city and get some rest- and a new phone. She doubted this was the last she'd be seeing of him, however.




OOC: Adrien could tag along, or they could get a call while they're out, or we could liquid-time it to another assignment in the city? how would you like to continue this? (or we can end it. I'm good with whatever.)

The notes of the concerto rung out like paradigms of life itself in the dark office of Burton Strange, such an unusual sound to hear in so empty a place. Behind an old wooden desk sat a figure cloaked in shadow, the dull light of a lamp illuminating a fraction of his true features as he stared at the folio in front of him - a collection of data pertaining to Gijinka sightings in the Dallea region. The other hunters were away from HQ, and so he figured it apt to stay here, awaiting information from reliable sources as to the location of valuable specimens.

The day was yet young for the hunters, finding it easier to hunt in daylight for the Gijinka, and Burton eagerly awaited any call at all, in order to forward instructions to the others. Adrien was out, supposedly having been called by one of the other hunters. He did not mind sitting on the sidelines sometimes - it gave him time to reflect on the condition of the world, and whether or not they remained true to their cause. Of course, Burton saw the money shine before his eyes - not the moral compass of the Hunters being slowly twisted to the point of becoming a malevolent evil. Maybe one day he would realise this, but it would not be this day.

His notes included the sightings of pokemon in the past few days, but today there was a recurring message from informants - a Dragonair gijinka had been spotted at Lapras Beach, however, it had vanished before any hunters had arrived at the scene. He figured that it would have fled upstream into the Oneta Forest, but it would be a waste of resources to send the hunters on what could be a wild goose chase... Eventually the gijinka would resurface, and would be caught, just like they always do...

A concerto was drawing to its close, as he sipped a small glass on his desk, filled with what could only be described as an amber draught. It was an old single malt whisky, brewed in the Johto forests, and cask-aged for a decade or more. Whilst it was not one of the most refined whiskys, it was easy enough for Burton to drink whilst studying notes.

Sparta always hated bringing back the Gijinka- it would have been infinitely more bearable, at least, if she'd either had a Pokemon of her own to shoulder the weight- the two Ursaring Gijinka were carried by Adrien's Pokemon, and Sparta carried the scrawny deer boy over her shoulder- she felt some sort of responsibility to carry back the spoils of her hunt. Another downside to pulling up the first number she saw was that despite how helpful Adrien had been in the moment, he hadn't been very chatty or generally nice after the battle.

Rolling her eyes, she focused on the winding alleyways- the Hunters mostly used the back streets so that the majority of the city wasn't bothered or seeing into Hunter business. Looking longingly down a city street, Sparta was so lost in her thoughts that it took her a moment to register the tall black Gijinka ears poking out from under a hoodie. A brunette was helping him up, and they looked to be conversing. "Gijinka alert, Umbreon, talking to brunette girl. Right outside the Pokemart. I'm going in, alert HQ!" she whispered, ending in an over-the-shoulder request. Dropping the lanky boy, she rolled her shoulders and groaned. How was she going to handle this? She'd hardly taken down a couple of Gijinkas moments ago, and now her Pokemon were without health. She took a sharp left into a Pokecenter, reluctantly heading over to the PC and withdrawing her Heracross. The Bug/Fighting was considerably untrained compared to the rest of her team, and she dropped her Pokemon off with the Nurse Joy, hoping that the two were still chatting it up. Briefly wondering what Adrien had done at her swift exit, she headed over toward the pair. She coughed gently, trying to appear as helpful as possible as to not startle the Umbreon Gijinka. She recognized his face from the countless posters she'd helped to hang up.

"Excuse me miss, I'm with the Cobrapeak Security and I need to ask you to please step away, this man is a wanted criminal and you are in serious danger." She glanced at the Gijinka, throwing out her Heracross and hoping to Arceus that it was a bit more cooperative than it had been. "Heracross, use Take Down! Neutralize the threat!" Wondering briefly if Adrien would show up to help, Sparta hoped that the girl hadn't been deceived by the Gijinka and would turn on her. The passerby were interested but not enough to make a scene, and if Heracross cooperated, this would be over with quick and she'd be getting quite the reward.

A look of momentary surprise came to Kenji's face as she denied any knowing of all the things he'd said. She hadn't even heard a single thing of all of those? He expected her to at least know one thing, but nothing? Did she live an isolated life?

"Well," he began, taking in a quiet breath, "let me educate you a little bit on what's going on here in Dallea." He paused for a moment, wondering if his decision to continue talking to her was a good one. He lowered his voice even more, not wanting anyone to hear any part of this conversation. "I'm a Gijinka. You saw the ears on my head. Did they resemble any kind of Pokémon to you? If you guessed an Umbreon, then you're right." He said. "A Gijinka, to say the least, is a mix of human and Pokémon. Our kind is seen as trash, or expendable by this region. The DISR is a scientific organization that likes to study us, without our consent, taking us off the streets and doing whatever they want with us. I...I'm not going into detail with that." He said, breaking eye contact with Jaime, an almost painful expression coming to his face. "Another organization, the Hunters of Dallea. They work a lot with the DISR, or anyone that's searching for one of my kind. They were recently set up, and to say the least, they're bounty hunters who hunt and catch us for money before sending us away to whoever is offering the most money." His expression changed to a look of disgust.

"My face is on posters?" Kenji suddenly said as she mentioned it, and he looked around at the crowd once again, making eye contact with one or two people who passed by them. "That's just wonderful." He hissed. A nervous sweat began to break out over his forehead, and he quickly brushed it away with his jacket's sleeve, looking down at the ground. It definitely wasn't something he couldn't ignore. How many people had passed by him and the girl and recognized his face from the posters?

"You're right." He muttered under his breath. "I need to get out of here."

Almost as if on que, The voice of a woman cut through their conversation, and Kenji's concentration moved from Jamie to the new person. His eyes widened as she talked, and he quickly took a step back before she sent out her Heracross. The people who had been in close began to make room to avoid getting caught in with the group, some jogging up ahead to get out of the way.

It seemed fast, and he felt as though he hardly had time to react or jump out of the way. He immediately felt a stabbing pain against his stomach, and he let out a pained yell, before finding himself rolling across the sidewalk, people jumping out of the way to avoid getting hit by him. He finally managed to stop himself from getting thrown out too far, his hands digging at the ground. He struggled for a breath of air, letting out harsh coughs, before forcing himself up, a hand gripping onto his new wound; it would definitely leave a nasty bruise.

His eyes focused immediately on the two new threats. Focusing on the Heracross first would be the best decision. Then, once the attacker's defense was gone, he would just have to hope she had no more Pokémon, and he would go after her. He gritted his teeth in pain before charging forward, moving his hands out to his sides, the ends turning a dark purple. If he could poison the Heracross, it would at least slowly weaken it.

As he got closer, he raised his hands and swung out at the Pokémon, moving his hands in an X shape, hoping to at least make some kind of contact.

The pain in the young man's eyes was brutally apparent, as he talked about his breed, and those who wished harm upon him. Jaime listened intently, her mind telling her that he was dangerous, but something else inside her saying that he was not a threat to the public without being provoked. She felt sorry for him, and from his explanation, for others who were like him - how many others would suffer or have suffered abduction and abuse from these 'hunters'? The very thought made her sick to the core.

"You're right." He muttered under his breath. "I need to get out of here."

"If we head out of here, I can give you a lift to whereever you need to go." Jaime offered, glancing around the crowd, however, the man's attention was drawn to a figure approaching Jaime from the side, and as she turned to see an eccentrically dressed woman, with long, braided, blonde and brown hair, charging towards them.

"Excuse me miss, I'm with the Cobrapeak Security and I need to ask you to please step away, this man is a wanted criminal and you are in serious danger."

Before Jaime had time to react, the woman had pulled out a ball, and launched it towards the ground near the gijinka, summoning her Heracross, and almost immediately, she found herself subconsciously reaching for her own pokeballs. Her hand clenched on one of them, and as the Heracross moved to take down the gijinka, knocking him to the floor, she plucked it away from the holder and launched it.

"Charizard! Use flamethrower on that Heracross! Protect that man!"

Charizard growled as he stretched his wings, took a breath, and unleashed a stream of flames at the giant beetle. Jaime hoped that it would at least scare off the assailant bug pokemon. Many bystanders took this opportunity to flee from the conflict, as Jaime's attention turned to the woman, her hand reaching for another ball - Skarmory.

"You know, you don't really look like a police officer..."

Sparta watched in frustration as the Umbreon Gijinka got up after Heracross's Take Down attack, his stomach having been hit but unfortunately not enough to disable him. She growled under her breath as the Trainer sent out a Charizard, the large orange dragon sending a stream of flames towards the Heracross. The bug Pokemon leapt out of the way of the fire, the flames only catching the horn of the Pokemon. However, Heracross's movement had put the Umbreon Gijinka closer, and the man's claws scratched against Heracross's exoskeleton, the poison attack bouncing off of the insect's thick armor. Heracross stumbled from its fire injury, and Sparta quickly commanded it to use Rock Slide against the Charizard. She didn't want to pit herself against the Trainer, but the Charizard would only get in the way. Hopefully the attack against Kenji could put him down long enough for Heracross to get Charizard out of the way. "Miss, please do not fight me, I am trying to protect you from this outlaw. Whatever he told you was simply to try and get you on his side- he's known to be very deceptive. I am currently undercover with the law to keep order, please cooperate with me miss!" Sparta tried to keep the woman from throwing out another Pokemon, wishing that the woman would just get out of the way so she could neutralize the Gijinka.

Kenji's eyes seemed to widen with surprise as Jaime sent out her Charizard. Was she, a human, siding with him? It definitely didn't feel real, almost like a dream...

He quickly shook his head, the Toxic attack wearing off. He struggled to keep himself up, taking a couple steps back to make some space between him and the enemy. His legs shook, and if he'd have eaten anything today, he would have lost it all after he'd gotten hit. The pain still wasn't exactly that comfortable either, and it made it hard to move around.

"Ergh..." He let out a hiss of pain, falling down onto one knee for a moment, glaring over at Sparta. He let out a heavy breath, and then forced himself back up, beginning to charge up a Dark Pulse. His eyes locked onto the Heracross, the target of his attack.

"I'm deceptive? A liar?" Kenji snapped. "And you're undercover with the law? You're trying to protect her?" His anger was rising at each word. "That's all bullshit! I wouldn't lie about my kind's situation! The most harm I've done to her is yelled at her a couple times! You aren't undercover, you're probably a fucking hunter!" He yelled, before sending out a sudden dark blast, aiming for Sparta this time instead of her Heracross partner.

The Heracross' Rock Slide attack swept Charizard backwards, knocking him down, but not out. Jaime growled under her breath, her hand firmly gripping Skarmory's ball before launching it out to take on Heracross from above; the fighting bug stood no chance against attacks from the air, she thought.

"Skarmory!" Jaime yelled. "Use Drill Peck on that overgrown bug!"

Skarmory spiralled into the air from her ball, before diving towards Heracross at extreme speed, razor sharp beak primed for impact. The gijinka had returned to his feet, albeit in a bit of stupor, but he quickly started to charge an attack at the bug, before firing a blast of purple and red light at the woman who was attacking him. Jaime took a step back, a little stunned to see such power come from a humanoid body. As if to snap her out of her awe, Charizard growled behind her, the injured dragon returning to his feet - she turned, moving towards him, placing a hand on his chest.

"Come on, pal. Back on your feet - it ain't over yet."

With a roar, Charizard finally gets to his feet, ready to jump back into the fight if he is needed. She couldn't help but feel like they were in a hornet's nest, if the gijinka was telling the truth. It wouldn't be long before more 'hunters' would arrive. Even if he was lying to her, the only out now was to escape the city, and quickly, before more of the security force arrived.

Sparta's eyes narrowed dangerously as the Umbreon Gijinka stripped away at her cover story, deciding that the Trainer had never believed it anyway and the only thing left to do now was fight and hope that Adrien had gotten his sorry self back to HQ and had backup on the way. She watched Kenji's hands darken with energy, her gaze locked on him until the Charizard landed on the ground. She smirked at Heracross's perfect cooperation so far, guessing it wasn't long before the Pokemon went solo- But with the look on the tall male's face, it seemed that this new independence would allow her to deal with the real threat here. The Trainer let out a Skarmory, and Sparta cursed under her breath. The Drill Peck attack was likely far too quick for Heracross to dodge, and it would knock him out on impact. She yelled at the Pokemon to move, but it didn't do any good- Skarmory's attack threw Heracross back, rendering him unconscious. She returned the bug Pokemon to its ball just in time to see the orange dragon recover. She was about to look for something else to aid her when the energy that Kenji had been charging hit her full-on. Coughing and spluttering, the hunter looked up with a murderous gaze. She pulled out Adrien's two Pokemon, hoping to occupy the Trainer while she took down the Gijinka. "Luxray, use Thunderbolt! Pyroar, Flamethrower!" Sparta hoped that the Pokemon knew these moves or something similar, and was rewarded with a stroke of luck when the Pokemon launched their attacks. Glee filled her for a moment as she watched Luxray release a bolt of electricity towards the Skarmory, and Pyroar leap into action against CHarizard. Turning her sights back to Kenji, she sprinted at him with her infamous speed and launched a powerful kick, hoping to follow it up with a flurry of Dizzy Punches. She could hold off for a while, but not long enough. Sparta hated it, but she hoped reinforcements were on the way.

A feeling of satisfaction graced Kenji for a moment, a pained grin coming across his face. He'd finally managed to get at least one successful hit, even though he'd only struck out twice, and it seemed to have done at least some damage. He let out a heavy breath as he backed up a little bit further. There was definitely going to be reinforcements arriving sooner or later, and if even one more person showed up, it would likely destroy him and Jaime's chances of winning. If he could just make a break for it and get far enough away from the fight...

He turned his head to look behind himself, seeing if perhaps by any luck there was somewhere he could slip away and easily lose the hunter, though knew immediately that losing his concentration on the battle was an awful decision. By the time he'd looked back, the woman was charging at him, and with an insane speed as well. He quickly began trying to charge up another Dark Pulse, but it was obvious he was too late. Trying to move out of the way of her kick only made things worse, and her foot came into contact with his side, basically on top of his other wound he'd recieved from his Heracross. He let out a pained yell before falling onto the ground once again, a hand gripping onto his side as he let out several coughs. When he looked back up at her, it was obvious she was readying yet another attack, and he quickly rolled out of the way, barely dodging her punches. His eyes widened for a moment, and then he quickly swung his foot out in an attempt to perhaps catch Sparta's ankle and trip her up and onto the ground, perhaps giving him a better chance to send out another attack, or at least set some distance between them.

Luxray's Thunder Bolt caught Skarmory square in the chest as it returned through the air towards Jaime, sending the metal bird spiralling to the ground, its wings paralyzed by the shock. It landed in a heap near the entrance of the Pokemart. Charizard meanwhile found himself pushing forward into the stream of flames spouting from Pyroar's mouth, the two fire pokemon unlikely to deal much damage towards each other, however, Charizard was starting to look weary.

After bringing the downed Skarmory back to her pokeball, Jaime pulled out the ball for Metang. This fight has gone on for long enough, thought Jaime, her attention shifting to the Gijinka, desperately fighting the hunter amidst the chaos.

"Hey, gijinka!" Jaime cried out to him, as she moved closer to Charizard. "I hope you have good balance! Go Metang!" She threw the ball out into the middle of the street, and climbed on to Charizard's back. "Use Earthquake! Come on, Charizard, let's fly!"

The Charizard took off from the ground while it began to rumble, as Metang started punching the ground in reverberating pulses, with enough force to shake people off their feet. Charizard circled overhead, waiting for an opportunity to pick up the Gijinka from below.

Sparta grinned wickedly as her foot connected with the Gijinka's side, feeling him crumple in pain from the dual infliction of wounds in that spot. She landed elegantly, her punches whizzing around him but barely missing; a disadvantage of battling such creatures was their inhuman speed. Allowing her gaze to briefly snap to the loud noise as the Trainer's Skarmory crashed to the ground, she felt the Gijinka's foot sweep her off balance and to the ground. Cursing her distraction, the Hunter launched herself at the Gijinka again, prepared to fire off another round of punches and perhaps a well-aimed kick for the delinquent.

She heard the Trainer call out to the Umbreon Gijinka, and Sparta gritted her teeth. She was forced to make a move- commanding Pyroar to change his focus to the Steel/Psychic, she quickly assessed the likeliness of taking out the bird-like Pokemon. Watching as the Trainer's Charizard leapt into the air, she quickly glared back at the Gijinka. The Metang then began to punch the earth, causing it to rumble under her feet, giving the Umbreon a moment to escape as she stumbled. This sort of offense could land the Trainer into serious trouble with actual law enforcement- with the Umbreon Gijinka behind bars, she wouldn't have to worry about him being a nuisance anymore. Sparta made a move to pursue the pair, hoping desperately now that reinforcements were on the way and she wouldn't look ridiculous fighting this losing battle. Neither Pyroar nor Luxray could properly follow the Charizard- the flying dragon would be far too quick to follow on foot. Sparta was ready to make some sacrifices- she would not let this be her second failure of the day.

Kenji grinned yet again, though it seemed much weaker this time, and he let out a small laugh through gritted teeth, though stayed on the ground. It was getting harder to move now, and that could only mean bad things. To think I'd be caught so off guard like this, and now I'm being defeated so easily...what happened to my luck from before? It used to be so easy getting away from them...

He reacted as quickly as he could when he found himself being attacked yet again, barely a chance to try and catch his breath. He tried to get onto his hands and knees to maybe get out of the way, though the kick landed square on his back, and he found himself on the ground yet again, though it seemed not for long this time.

His eyes shifted up at Jaime as she spoke, rather confused from his spot on the ground at what she meant. "Balance? What does that matter on solid ground?" He muttered under his breath, but his confusion was quickly cast aside as he realized what she was doing. The shaking of the road and sidewalk beneath Kenji caught him off guard, though finally found his chance as the Hunter stumbled away from him. He quickly began to try and crawl away, though still found it hard, if he could at least make some distance, perhaps the girl would come and grab him. Then he'd know he'd be safe...

His eyes widened suddenly as a new voice came from a little ways away, and he knew all to well what it meant.

"Hmph, seems like we've missed quite a bit."

He couldn't say he'd expected him and Burton to find Sparta and the Gijinka she'd seen so easily, but Adrien wasn't going to complain about it either. It had only taken them fifteen to twenty minutes at the most...the yelling and the sudden rumbling of the ground had given away their location so obviously, he was surprised there wasn't already ten other hunters and the law enforcement surrounding them by now.

"Hmph, seems like we've missed quite a bit." He muttered, looking over the place from the spot where he stood. He spotted the Gijinka laying a little ways away, injured well enough that this could be a quick fight, so maybe Sparta wasn't as much of a hopeless case as he thought...but he found the trainer in the air with her Charizard soon enough after, planting his cold stare on the girl. "Though it looks as though we've got another to deal with as well." He noted her off, a hint of annoyance in his voice. What was she thinking...a human girl, helping a Gijinka? Was she from around here, or perhaps from Merrima? Whatever it was, she was simply going to get in the way, and he didn't enjoy obstacles in the ay of his work. So, he'd get rid of her, just like he would with anything and anyone else.

"I'll take care of the girl; you do what you want, Burton."

Seeming to keep his balance pretty well despite the tremors of the earthquake attack coming from Metang, Adrien took several steps forward before planting his feet carefully onto the ground, and then grabbing Noivern's Pokéball from his belt, tossing it into the air. While he knew it wasn't exactly a great type match up and put him at the disadvantage for the moment, he could see the exhaustion in the Charizard, and if he could just get it to land onto the ground, he could have the upper hand with his other Pokémon he still had on him.

"Noivern," Adrien spoke out to his Pokémon, who was flapping impatiently in the air, "Charizard is the target of your attack...try not to kill the girl in the process. Get in as close as you can before using Dragon Pulse."

Soon enough, Noivern had jumped up into the air, getting up to level with the Charizard and its female trainer, and then finally, flying towards them with a dark sphere making shape in front of its mouth. It let out a high, shrill cry before sending off its attack, aimed directly at the pair. Adrien, in the meantime, watched the girl and the Charizard without his cold expression having changed in the slightest.

Following Adrien through the twisting streets of Cobrapeak, Burton noticed a strange quietness; the normally bustling lanes lay deserted... and as they hurried further into the city center, they soon realised why. Sparta had indeed confronted the gijinka, and all they needed to do now, was follow the sounds of roaring pokemon, energy blasts and earthquakes. Hopefully Adrien and himself wouldn't have to deal with the law enforcement as well...

Soon, they stumbled upon the scene - a cloaked figure resting on the ground, a young hunter recoiling from her wounds, a Metang pounding the ground, sending tremors beneath Burton's feet, and in the sky above, a young girl, riding a Charizard, swooping down towards the center of the street, at first seeming to target Sparta, but moving closer to the figure on the ground, who must obviously be the Umbreon gijinka. Burton let out a growl under his breath as Adrien moved to engage her. "Foolish girl... don't let her take the Umbreon!" Reaching into his pocket, he pulled out a ball for Hawlucha, and sent him out. "Hawlucha! Subdue the gijinka!"

The fighting bird flew out of the ball to the street, towards the man finding his feet once again, and attempted to use Acrobatics on the target. Burton cast a glance up to the trainer, as Adrien's Noivern unleashed its fury.



Image


Charizard's first pass to pick up the gijinka failed, as he was unable to get close enough to grab him. Climbing back into the air, he circled to make another pass, thankfully, without coming under attack from the hunter.

Jaime watched the street below as two more figures joined the scene - men in their thirties, dressed in formal, sinister-looking attire - more hunters perhaps? As if to answer her own question, a new pokemon joined the fray, taking to the sky to greet them - a Noivern. Charizard could fight him on a good day, but it was too risky, and frankly too much to ask of a weary friend. She rubbed the neck of the winged pokemon gently, and said calmly, "Let it come closer. When it charges an attack, drop below it. You can do it!"

Charizard began to hover in place as Noivern approached, letting out a low growl, and spreading his wings to create a backdraft, and pose a bigger target for the foe. As Noivern reared its head to let loose the blast, Charizard tucked in his wings, and plummeted back towards the ground, his tail scorched by the pulse of dragon energy. Roaring in pain, he spread his wings, and Jaime held on for dear life, as they drew closer to the Gijinka, her hand only coming away to find Metang's ball as they stabilized their descent. Last chance, gijinka... we can't pass again.

The Charizard's legs hung low, attempting to grab the gijinka, or allow him to grab on, but it was hard to be precise at such a low altitude, threading between these buildings. As they passed, Jaime was unsure whether or not the gijinka was 'on board', however, they did knock down a Hawlucha which was attacking him, as she called back the Metang who had bought so much time to try.

Sparta's eyes narrowed as the Gijinka tried crawling away, and the Hunter crouched on the rumbling pavement, poised to attack yet again. However, her gaze was diverted by the entrance of two of her colleagues- one being Burton Strange himself, founder of the Hunters. Now putting in twice the effort to impress the founder, Sparta leapt at the Umbreon Gijinka. Trying to wrestle him to the ground and keep the Charizard out of his grasp, she glanced up briefly to see the Charizard dip under the Noivern. Her venomous glare shot back to her prey, and she tensed up her muscles and hoped to knock him out with a dizzying punch. With the Umbreon on the ground, hopefully the Trainer could be chased away and they could finally capture the infamous Kenji Akamaru. "Come on, Gijinka scum! Your fight is up!" she hissed, her golden eyes blazing with frustration at the way this Gijinka kept slipping out of their grasp like a flopping Magikarp.

"shit shit shit!" Kenji's breathing quickened, close to a hyperventilation, as he noticed the two new hunters who had arrived, specifically two he recognized as two of the three founders of the Hunters of Dallea, Burton Strange and Adrien Murkos. All hope he'd had at all had just been crushed at the sight of them, and cast over the edge into a dark pit. The hunter that had been here for long enough had already done so much damage to him; he didn't like to imagine what her and those two could do all together at once.

It seemed the human girl from before realized that this wasn't a fight they could take, or at least not today, and she began to lower down to try and grab him again with her Charizard, though a Noivern from one of founders seemed to slow her down. He forced himself to get back up from off his good side again and to begin crawling away yet again, hoping to perhaps grab onto the Pokémon, though was caught by Sparta yet again, who leapt onto him. He let out a startled yell, and immediately tried to turn or perhaps knock her off of his back somehow, though all the movement and the weight of the Hunter on top of him wasn't helping his pain, nor was it helping with the fact that he was struggling to keep himself holding on to his conscience.

"Come on, Gijinka scum! Your fight is up!" Sparta's yelling made Kenji's eyes widen, and then narrow again, an angry, hateful glare coming to his face. "I'm not letting you sadists take me!" He snapped, and he suddenly twisted himself to the side, enough to knock Sparta off of him again, which wasn't a surprise with the tremors still inflicting the ground. He quickly began moving himself away again, before he spotted Charizard again, who happened to knock over a Hawlucha Kenji hadn't noticed before.

As the Charizard began to approach, Kenji quickly began to move up, struggling to get on his feet, but knowing they had a better chance of grabbing him, or him grabbing onto the Pokémon...anything, to get him out of this place, and away from the hunters attacking him. He held his hand to his side, grimacing at the pain, and the warmth of blood on his hand that had darkened the color of his clothes around his wound. He felt dizzy, and hoped to Arceus that the girl grabbed him before Sparta tackled him to the ground again.



Image

"Hm, looks like you won't be an easy opponent." Adrien muttered under his breath, watching the Charizard dodge Noivern's attack at the last second, though it did manage to catch the Charizards tail; he had to give himself and the Pokémon credit for that. Yet it still hadn't made enough contact to do any disabling damage; the giant, orange dragon was still flying down, getting closer to the ground, likely to snatch up the Gijinka so the pair could make their escape...though Sparta seemed to be helping in making that more and more difficult, and the Gijinka wasn't looking too good,his face looking rather pale, blood dropping from his nose, and the injury at his side having bled quite a bit into his clothes. It wouldn't be a suprise if he passed out right where he was.

"Give up already, dammit." Adrien hissed beside Burton, taking a few more steps forward and coming much further out now that the Metang had stopped its attack and was back inside its Pokéball, before his eyes laid back onto Noivern, a nasty, malicious look in his eyes.

"You've got a clear shot, take down the Charizard!" Adrien snapped, becoming impatient as the time went on. They'd chased after the resistance member for too long; he wasn't going to let the bastard escape again. "Use Dragon Pulse again!"

Burton gritted his teeth as the Charizard made contact with Hawlucha, sending the poor bird crashing to the ground, as the dragon narrowly missed grabbing the Gijinka. His hand was already reaching for another ball, as Sparta laid into the hooded figure with a flurry of punches and kicks. At least she is actually helping in this fight, I'll give her that. Their target looked weak and weary, sporting multiple wounds over his body, and was close to defeat... but Burton knew better than to trust the result of this battle to fate, and as he drew Greninja's ball, he cast a glance to the trainer on the Charizard, circling above the buildings, and he couldn't help but wonder why she would risk her life to protect this vermin.

"Greninja! Take down the Umbreon gijinka! Use Ice Beam!"

The Greninja emerged from its ball, and quickly scanned for its target. It didn't have a clear shot, thanks to Sparta, so it started to dash forward, hoping to flank around for a better angle of attack. Meanwhile, darkness enveloped the ground around Burton, shadows drawing closer and closer, and he glanced up to the sky once again.


Image


Jaime glanced backwards as they climbed above the buildings, realising that they hadn't picked up the gijinka. She cursed under her breath, and evaluated the situation. There was no obligation to go back for him, and no sane reason to, but the voice of her mind told her what she was condemning this man to if she abandoned him here, and in many ways, this whole fight had been her fault. If she hadn't been so curious as to whether or not Gijinkas were a real thing, he'd have continued on his path, undisturbed, with nothing more than a mutual apology.

In her heart she knew that turning around was the right thing to do, but also a foolish thing too - Charizard couldn't take much more of a beating right now, and she knew it was a big ask of him to go back - it was too late now, she had to do it.

"We have to go back for him, even if it is a bad idea." Jaime stated. The Charizard growled, his head turning back to the right, casting a tilted glare at Jaime, as if to suggest that she must be joking. "I'm serious. If we leave, we sentence him to a painful death at the hands of those monsters. I can't do that, can you?" Again the Charizard growled, his head hanging low. After a moment, he dipped to the right, taking Jaime and himself back towards the fight. With a roar, he plunged, gathering speed, soaring past the Noivern who had caught up with them again before it could launch a second attack. Jaime held on for dear life, as they drew closer to ground level. "Give 'em hell, bud!" Charizard sent a stream of flames out towards the two men who had joined the fight late, before levelling out, speeding towards the gijinka and his attacker. With a roar, he muscled past the Greninja who was moving forward to ready an attack, and with his arms forward, scooped up the Gijinka from behind, carrying him above the buildings.

Sparta's fists landed with satisfying give, sinking into the outlaw and causing him some obvious pain. She smiled sadistically, only glancing up at all to see the Pokemon- Burton's, she thought- approaching. Leaping out of the way of the frog Pokemon's attack, she watched in horror as the large orange Charizard swooped and snatched up the Umbreon Gijinka. Grinding her teeth in frustration, the Hunter retreated back to her comrades, watching in fury and bated breath as the two rose higher into the air. There was nothing she could do but watch as the unlikely pair retreated over the skyline and the city started to buzz back to life. She hung her head in shame, hardly daring to look up at the two men she was working with. "So what do we do now?" All of her Pokemon were knocked out, Adrien's probably weren't in much shape to pursue or battle much longer- plus, they weren't even hers to command. "Are we going after them? I might be able to pick up my Pokemon from the Center and we could track them..." she suggested, trying to remember exactly where the center was- not far, maybe down the street a few buildings. She waited for some command before running off again.

He'd nearly fallen down onto his knees when Jaime had missed again, beginning to give in to his dizziness, before he heard the Charizard's wings flapping around closer again, and he'd barely glanced behind himself before he felt the Pokémon's hands curling around him and lifting him right off the ground, carrying him above the buildings. Looking down at the ground, he could see the look of defeat on the Hunters' faces, or at least, he hoped that's what he was seeing form all the way up where he was now.

The sharp movements of the Charizard as it flew through the sky and away from the battlefield were rather painful to Kenji, and he gritted his teeth, letting out heavy breaths...but even through the pain, he felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude...towards the girl. A human.

The wasn't like him. He'd thought all the humans were the same, even the ones from Merrima, but now this trainer, of all people, was helping him. Where had she come from? This couldn't be normal, right? But the truth was right in his face. She was helping him...she'd even risked being harmed during the fight to do so. He'd never heard of anything like it before.

"Thank...you..." He muttered through his heavy breathing, though he was sure she likely didn't even hear it.



Image

"Damn." Adrien cursed as the Charizard easily flew past his Noivern and its attack, and then swept up the Gijinka, taking to the air yet again immediately after. The spray of flames that had nearly come into contact the hunter's face hadn't helped either, and he had to jump back if he didn't want to lose another section of his face to an ugly, scarred burn.

He watched, his face twisted in anger, as the Umbreon Gijinka managed to get away, out of their hands, their grip, yet again. He quickly turned to the Noivern, and returned it to its Pokéball, slinging it on his belt and then brushing off his hands on his pants.

He spotted Sparta approaching them, her head lowered, and his angry expression seemed to leave for a moment, though it was still painfully could. He couldn't lose his cool in front of her right now, it would only make things worse...not that this situation could get any worse than it already was, yet still...

"No, we aren't chasing after him. We don't have any Pokémon in a good enough condition to follow them, and by the time you manage to get your Pokémon out of the Center, they'll both be long gone." He replied, his voice cold. "It would be better to just return to the HQ, after this complete failure."

Burton's eyes flashed in panic as he realised the Charizard was coming for him. He took a small stumble backwards, before throwing himself to the right, out of the path of the flames, rolling on to one knee. As he rose from his kneel, he was helpless to prevent the Charizard from sweeping up the gijinka, and carrying him over the buildings to the South. He cursed under his breath, as his eyes returned to the chaotic mess of the street. It would not be long until security arrived, if they weren't already almost upon the scene. Burton brought back his Hawlucha and Greninja, before turning towards the alley from which Adrien and himself had arrived.

"We would be wise not to dally. There aren't too many places they will be likely to go, with such wounds to the Gijinka. Fetch your pokemon, and return to HQ, Sparta. Adrien... it's time we paid our friends in the countryside a visit, don't you think?"

He was furious about the result of the battle... the fact that they had been outrun by a little girl and a weak Gijinka... there was little point in dwelling on it now. He made his way into the alley, quickly, without waiting for any further responses.

Sparta hated losing.

She'd had issues with it since childhood, her competitive streak often leading her to get into fights and eventually bringing her to lead martial arts. She'd lost a few scuffles way back in the day, and maybe a couple missions since she began, but nothing compared to the crushing feeling that infected her as they watched the Trainer and the outlaw soar away into the sky. Sparta kicked a stone, shuffling into the Pokemon Center and waiting for the Nurse to bring out her Pokemon. Retrieving Heracross, the Hunter rolled the ball around in her hands, watching the lights play off the shiny red top. Allowing the Nurse to take the Bug Pokemon, Sparta left with the remainder of her party and headed back in the dusk light to the HQ. This day had been exhausting- particularly this evening. Sparta couldn't wait to head back home to her tiny apartment on the fringe of Cobrapeak and crash.

Pushing the door open with a click, Sparta glanced at the empty cages. Shocked, she doubled back and made certain that they were absolutely empty. What sort of person with a death wish would enter the Hunter HQ and release three captive Gijinka?! Cursing in frustration, Sparta frantically tried to figure out how this had happened- preferably before the Founders returned.

Adrien trailed silently behind Sparta, with Burton close by his side, as he tried to think through everything that had just happened. They'd been "defeated" by some random trainer who just happened to be nearby. It had been three versus one and a half (the Umbreon Gijinka was basically done for by the time they'd arrived)...how the hell had they gotten away? They should have been so easily...defeated...

He let out an annoyed growl, shoving his hands into his pockets as he thought of it. They'd been so close to taking out the Gijinka...wuld have gotten a hefty price for him as well, probably from the DISR, after all the damage he'd done himself. He'd gotten himself a rather notorious name around Cobrapeak. They could have gotten information from him too...it wasn't a secret that he was apart of the resistance.

"Dammit, this is ridiculous." He hissed, mostly to himself, as he continued walking. "If that girl hadn't shown up..." He shook his head, and then sped up his pace, finally seeing the old building ahead of them.

Sparta disappeared into the building rather suddenly, and he could already tell something was wrong. Starting in a jog, he moved up to the door, and opened it, only to be faced with a disaster of an office, and the cages that had originally held the Gijinka that him and Sparta had caught were indeed missing. His face twisted in anger as he saw it, and his hand balled up into a fist.

"What the hell...is this?" His voice had become quiet, but was clearly full of anger. He was shaking where he stood as he looked around at the place.

As if this day couldn't get any worse.
