"Those numb-skulls didn't have any clue." Chuck said. "I probably could have gotten right past this guard and faced Guzma without any issue honestly. Anywho, I'm ready." He had a plan reguarding the Z-Crystals Guzma was hording.
"It's over you dimestore hoodlum," Liam said. Guzma looked visibly hurt by the remark and sent out Golisopod.
"Golisopod, the Hard Scale Pokemon. A Bug and Water type. The shell covering its body is as hard as diamond. This Pokémon will do anything it takes to win. Its claws, which it can extend and retract at will, are its greatest weapons. The claws are said to be able to cleave seas water, or even air in two." "So, who wants to take care of this clown?" Liam asked his friends.
"I'll go." Chuck said. "Let's go Kite!" Chuck sent out his shiny Vikavolt and Guzma sneered. "You're gonna wish you hadn't stepped up kid! Destruction incarnate, master of Bug Pokémon, it's your boy, Guzma! Golisopod First Impression!" Guzma said. His Golisopod dashed forward and slashed at the Vikavolt, knocking it back a bit, but it managed to recover. "Kite, retaliate with Thunder!" The Vikavolt unleashed a massive blast of electricity into the air, crashing through the roof and launching into the sky, the rain now pouring in from the hole left behind. It soon came crashing down on Golisopod, dealing massive damage.
"That attack better knock Golisopod out or its Emergency Exit ability will trigger," Shiranui thought as he watched the battle, all the while puzzling over Team Skull's role in the Aether Foundation mystery.
Jen hopes Golisoppod is knocked out cold as sne wonders about the mystery between Team Skull and Aetndr Foundation. Maybe Guzma will talk as Maui and Aura glance at the hole in the roof as they worry about a flood in the room.
The attack proved too much for Guzma's ace, and he was forced to recall it, sending out Masquerain. "Air Slash, yo!" Guzma called out. The Masquerain flapped it's wings and sent out a blade of air at Kite, who got hit but quickly recovered. "Kite, counter with another Thunder!" Chuck said. The Vikavolt unleashed a massive blast of electricity that easily knocked out the Masquerain as well. Guzma recalled it and sent out his final Pokémon, Pinsir. "You guys are really irritating, ya know?" Guzma said, ruffling his hair. "Pinsir, use Stone Edge!" Guzma called out. Pinsir let loose a bunch of pointed rocks that shot out at Kite, knocking him back and out. Chuck recalled the Vikavolt and sent out his Turtonator, calling out "Let's do this Megumin, no mercy! Inferno Overdrive!" Chuck activated his Z-Ring and performed the fire dance, as Megumin charged up a massive ball of fire and launched it at the Pinsir, hitting it dead on and knocking it out.
Guzma flipped out at his defeat. He glared at Chuck and said: "I'm gonna beat you down one of these days! No matter whose help I need to do it..." and he ran off in a huff. Liam found a big box crammed full of Bugnium Z, and brought it to is friends' attention.
"At least it wasn't a total waste of our time and resources," replied Shiranui, taking a Buginium Z, "We have the Buginium Z and we cleared out this nest of Rattata. By the way, Chuck, did you find any information about the people who were slipping money into Guzma's pocket?"
