Oak - "Don't be reckless Rod! Let Blue go with you!!"
Rod shook his head and ran outside. He pointed at the beasts and jumped onto Garrus.
Rod - "No. We end this now."
They gave chase and the birds split.
Garrus - "Rod! Where do I go!? What do I do!?"
Rod - "IDK Garrus! Follow that one! The other 2 look like they are going faster anyway!"
Rod and Garrus looked around as the ground below them lay in ruin from the beasts. Vast amounts of smoke filled the air as the forests burned below.
Rod - "This is too much... They don't care what they destroy..."
Garrus - "Hold on!"
He spun suddenly as lightning whizzed by Rod's head burning the tip of his cap. The Zapdos hovered above them ready to strike.
Rod - "Garrus GO!!!"
Garrus - "Where!?"
Rod - "ANYWHERE!!"
Another lightning bolt came crashing down. Garrus got clipped on his wing and spiraled down towards the ground. As they fell Rod noticed the city lights turning of row by row. He soon became dizzy and lost his grip.
Garrus - "We're landing"
Rod crashed into the ground as Garrus gently came to a halt. The rest of the team emerged from their balls.
Minerva - "Rod... The power plant... Its hit..."
Ricco - "Its so dark I can't see anything"
Kratos - "Ugh... I hate birds..."
Rod staggered back to his feet only to catch a glimpse of the Zapdos diving down towards them. Blade jumped towards the legendary bird.
A blinding flash.
A massive boom.
Two distinct thuds sounded around Rod.
Garrus - "There they are!"
Minerva - " Rod! Blade!"
Ricco - "Come on wake up!!"
Rod blinked and groaned in pain as Ricco shook him awake. His gaze shifted around. The legendary bird was no where to be found but a big crater .
Rod - "What happened?.."
Ricco - "Blade stoned it... He took a massive lightning bolt though... Then both came crashing down..."
Rod - "Is he okay? Where is he!?"
Minerva look away from Rod. She shielded Blade.
Rod - "No..."
Blade - "I'm not dead dumby it just hurts... You need to learn how to move when a massive bird that burps lightning is crashing down into you."
Rod laughed and groaned.
Rod - "That is pretty stupid huh haha ugghhh"
Minerva - "Well that's one... We still have another two to take care of."
Rod - "I know... I think we should just sleep here tonight. My head hurts and Blade isn't looking too hot."
Blade - "Just wait till you look in the mirror ugh."
The team laughed as they helped Rod and Blade to their feet and took them into the Power Plant to rest...
Again not some of the best writing but its a little more difficult to get creative when the battles aren't exactly epic.
However the actual battle with Zapdos did almost end with one less teammate.
I was expecting the Rock Slide to hit as usual and the game decided to miss. So Zapdos Discharged and left Blade with 12 HP. In hind sight might of been best to switch out but I left Blade in Rock Slide battle over.
