"Yeaaaaah! CHARGE!" Danny cheered, bolting strait past Cimus and Amelia, Lucio right behind him. The two were fast, and quickly were able to rush out of town, and onto Route 1. Danny was so excited!
The trees had leaves that flowed delicately in the wind, there was a small lake east of the path, probably with a few water pokemon here and there, and the softer ground around the lake had rocks. Or were they really rock type pokemon? The mystery was for anyone who cared to solve it, but Danny didn't give a single damn!
"Saikyo is the best, Saikyo is the- HOLY ARCEUS!" Danny tripped, falling onto his face. Lucio stopped and looked at him, sighing deeply as the boy stood up and brushed off his vest. "Heh, I'm fine!" He said confidently, before the two's attention instantly went to some moving tall grass. Danny and Lucio stared, curiously, as a Darumaka came out and stared at them. They had woken it up, and it was pissed!
"Woah! Look at that little dude! He's awesome!"
~Dramatic Zoom-In on Danny's eyes~
"We're catching it."
Suddenly, the Darumaka charged with a Tackle attack, and Danny quickly came to attention. "Our first real battle! Lucio, let's do it! Ya-Hoo!" With Danny's words in mind, Lucio the Tyrogue braced himself. The two stood in the exact same fighting stance, side-by-side. The Darumaka was approaching quickly, and this urged the duo to take action. A swift movement from them both happened, as they ran forward, front-flipping over the Darumaka. The turned, as the Darumaka stumbled trying to stop. "Let's GO!" Danny cheered, the duo running forwards. As the Darumaka turned around, Lucio delivered a copied punch to it's face, sending it barreling backwards. Danny and Lucio put their hands on their hips, feeling victorious.
... Though they weren't. The Darumaka suddenly, from it's downed position, rolled at them. It was using Rollout! "Awh, crap!" Danny shouted, the two putting up their arms to block it. The Darumaka connected with Lucio, pushing him back. Oddly enough, Danny had been pushed back as well, as if they were truly both one being. The Darumaka rolled backwards, giving them a moment to think before rolling at them again! This roll connected as well, and the two grunted as the pain it caused. "Ow..! Man..." Danny wasn't going to cry. The Darumaka retreated once more, preparing to do the same thing again.
"We can't take much more of this!" Danny was concerned, and they tried to block the next attack, only to get knocked back by the force of the Darumaka's Rollout. The two landed on their backs, but made a swift recovery with a firm shove on the ground, bringing them to their feet. Danny scanned the Darumaka, wary of it as it tried to assault them once more. Danny wasn't going to lose his first fight. No, he would win! For Lucio! For Himself!!
For the Hibiki Dojo!
"No you don't! C'mon, Lucio! Let's grab that puffball!" Danny told his friend, and they held out their hands. The Darumaka hit Lucio for some damage, but this time they would counter! They managed to grip it's feet, stopping the roll. It cried out in confusion, as they threw it into the air. It flailed, not sure of what to do. Danny and Lucio smirked. The two got down on one knee, and raised a fist into the air as the Darumaka crashed into the grass. As the dustcloud around it faded, the Darumaka sat there, dazed. This was it! The duo rose to their feet, and ran forwards. The stunned Darumaka could do nothing to defend itself against them as a copied punch from Lucio connected, sending the little red and orange pokemon slamming into a tree.
Danny smirked, grabbed a pokeball, and chucked it at the Darumaka. It tapped against the Darumaka's belly, and began to rock. This was his first attempt ever! How exciting it was for the little guy.
"C'mon! That guy looks awesome~!" Danny said, starring with big, teary eyes. Lucio watched with his arms crossed... A companion, or just a defeated enemy... Which one would this Darumaka be?
