There are two ways to truly love someone: Become their best friend and then learn to love them, or love them enough to become their best friend. Either way, you won't be loved back. ;)

Castform managed to use ice powder twice against the Absol, weakening him further. Unfortunately, luck wasn't on Erza's side today as there was no status effect from these attacks. Returning Castform to his pokéball, Erza quietly thanked the pokémon before placing the pokéball on his waist, immediately taking the last able member of his team's pokéball: Princess. Erza had all faith in her for this battle, all he needed to do was use her power to their maximum capability.

"Alright, Princess... It's all on your beak now." The trainer whispered quietly to the pokéball before tossing it forward, the small bird-type materializing right in front of Erza in the air.

"Alright, Princess! Fly higher, now keep using gust on the sand around that Absol!" Erza knew that this was risky, but... his intention was to create a sandstorm around Absol that would obstruct his sight. A mix of gust and sand-attack, to so say - which Princess promptly followed, flying higher up and dusting clouds of sands around the dark-type, hopefully out of his reach for now. As soon as Erza saw an opportunity, he went in for a tackle: "Now, Princess! DIVE IN FOR A TACKLE! Let's take him out!"

Erza couldn't blink nor redirect his attention for half a second, completely in trance with the battle against this unknown trainer. Hunter did his work exceptionally well and beat their first opponent, a Snubbul, with a critical bite. After this, she sent out a Tynamo and Erza answered by calling Hunter back and sending out Vee, his starter pokémon. Unfortunately, the normal type didn't do so well against the Tynamo after being struck with Thunder Wave; paralysis became a real problem in the battle very soon. So, once Vee was no longer able to battle, Erza quickly called him back, thanking him for his good job. Then, he sent out Castform - thankfully, Vee had weakened the Tynamo sufficiently that even without a weather form, Castform was still able to finish Tynamo off.

...

An Absol. What a cool pokémon in all honesty; it looked very tough and Erza soon realized that it was not only in looks. Still, he had a lot of faith in his pokémon... Unfortunately, they were being taken out one by one. His tactics didn't work, as he wanted to bait the Dark-Type's move and then disable it so it would become an easy target. Hunter didn't do so well as well.

That means Erza had Castform under half health and Princess, the Pidgey. After some seconds of thought, he sent out Castform. Though he was weakened, he was actually a capable pokémon and could certainly set the odds in Erza's favor. A freeze from Powder Snow or a Burn from Ember would do it and even if Castform wasn't able to finish it off, Erza still had Princess waiting expectingly to fly through the battle.

"Castform, I will need you again!" With that, Erza sent out the Weather Pokémon again, narrowing his eyes as he stared at the Absol, ignoring completely the provocation from the other trainer. "Keep your distance and watch out, use Powder Snow!"

Erza should've expected as much. As soon as he approached the girl and asked if everything was okay, she went from crying to very angered and challenged him to a battle- there was absolutely no way Erza would turn back her challenge. He even allowed himself a confident grin at the thought of making her even sadder once he won; damn, how sadistic!

".. Heh, if it will cheer you up. Come on, then!" Erza leads the battle with Growlithe. The girl, apparently, leads with Snubbul.

Contests weren't particularly interesting to Erza at all, unfortunately. The boy always considered battling to be the epitome of Pokémon, where the trainer and their pokémon used their powerful bond, strategy and any advantage they could take in order to overcome their opponent. Contests were... showy and certainly beautiful, but it never got his interest. So, even though he overheard this or that about a contest that had apparently just ended, the boy just moved on through to a new Route: Route 015. In his head, he had to become stronger so he could take on Redcoast's Gym... Which he wasn't particularly excited about, to be frank: Gyms are tough. This one, specifically, was scary.

So. As Erza walked along the coast, he couldn't help but notice the enormous amount of ships on the sea, with many trainers that acted as guardians with their pokémon standing on them. There was a good amount of wild pokémon as well, especially Krabby - not something Erza had much interest in capturing, so the boy kept moving forward, his eyes scanning the surroundings constantly. At each new find, he'd bring his pokédex out to scan the pokémon. Only after a while, something caught his interest: A Tentacool that seemed to be standing on the beach, instead of the open sea... And a little distance ahead, a girl - around his age - and while that wasn't particularly interesting to Erza as he was far more interested in pokémon than other humans unless they were trainers... the girl was crying. And that caught his attention.

He glanced at the Tentacool again aaand, maybe of sudden empathy or sheer curiosity, the boy switched his direction and walked over to the girl, standing next to her while looking over at the sea as well - and the ships of course. After some awkward silence, he cleared his throat and glanced down at her... Hopefully I can find that Tentacool again, heh.

"... So. Hope you don't mind me asking but... are you alright?"

Erza halts and returns Duskull to her pokéball. He looks around, breathes deeply and exhales a long, drawn-out sigh that probably had all of his will or motivation with it. Looking up at the sky, the boy raises a hand and wipes some of the droplets from the rain from his forehead which was probably mixed with his sweat, then downs his hand as he turns over and begins to walk the opposite direction from the Blitzles.

This ain't gonna work. I've wasted a lot of time already with that one Blitzle. So what that it's got a different color? It ain't even one of the toughest electric type around. Come on, I can do better than that..

Giving up on the Shiny Blitzle because of the many complications in catching it, Erza's now set on adventuring further ahead instead of wasting time without any success. Considering he's on Route 011, the boy is currently travelling to Redcoast City - and possibly through it should he pass without any interruption - directly to Route 015, where he'll search for new pokémon. Gotta expand his options, heh.

Apparently the Blitzle were discussing what to do. Unfortunately, Erza didn't had a clue of what they were saying to each other, so the boy relaxed a little and waited.

...

...

The Blitzle fled away!

"Hey!! THAT'S NOT HOW IT'S SUPPOSED TO WORK!" Ah but Erza wasn't going to have any of that. He took a deep breath and broke into a sprint after the Blitzle. If they were not willing to have a fair fight, then he'd do it the hard way - or at least try to, once again. Hopefully he could keep the Blitzle's pace - and hoping such, he'd reach for Extraordinary's pokéball and throw her out, as soon as the ghost-type materialized alongside him, Erza pointed forward while sprinting.

"Listen, I think-" A pause to breath, "You're the most appropriate for the current situation. If you can, use Astonish on that Blitzle! SPOOK IT GOOD, EXTRAORDINARY!" And apparently desperate situations call for desperate measures.

Yep, maybe an umbrella wouldn't be a bad idea. Then again, Erza wasn't made of sugar and although he had the risk of catching a cold or something, the boy was quite confident that his immune system was tough as himself- not that he was that tough in all honesty... Anyway. Princess took some time, but she eventually found Erza's objective and quickly returned to him, guiding the champion-in-the-making towards the correct herd. Erza passed through a few and eventually there he was, standing in front of the one herd that handed his ass to him previously. His pokémon didn't quite enjoy the previous battle, either. Those quick-attacks man.

Erza thanked Princess, returning the Pidgey to her pokéball and immediately pocketed the pokéball as he raised both of his hands in a 'defensive' manner towards the herd, clearing his throat loudly - probably not as loudly as the lightning strikes but loud enough anyway.

"Well, took my damn time but I finally found you guys again, eh." The boy spoke out, stepping closer to the herd - hopefully they didn't turn hostile right away... hoping that they didn't, the boy continued; "I have a simple proposition, a fair, one on one battle against..." Erza's left arm extended forward and his index finger pointed directly at:



Then, he'd cross his arms in front of his chest, expectingly staring at the herd to see if that'd bring any reaction with them. Honestly, Erza knew that his five pokémon couldn't take those six out - he had no ground type, and two of his team members were weak to lightning (he couldn't always count on luck to have their lightning moves absorbed by their own ability) and one of his stronger pokémon, Growlithe, had their STAB move weakened by the rain. If it was a fair, one on one, however, Erza's chance would grow considerably.

An important information, nonetheless: Worldedge City's pokemarts were likely to have Fire Stone. Why was Erza seeking one, however? Because in the near future, he would enjoy using it with Hunter, his Growlithe, to have the big boy evolve into an Arcanine. That was the beauty of loving and studying pokémon for a long, long part of his life: Erza knew many pokémon even though he never met them personally. Anyway, unfortunately, Redcoast City didn't have any particular pokémon Erza wanted, so far. He did register two in his pokédex, though:



Pokédex Entry #129 – Magikarp, the Fish Pokémon. While known for being extremely weak and washed away by even the weakest current, Magikarp can survive even in the most polluted of water. They’re incredibly fertile and have spread to waters all around the world. They jump fairly high, and older Magikarps are known to brave mountains with these jumps, seeking evolution.




Pokédex Entry #98 – Krabby, the River Krab Pokémon. It lives on beaches burrowed inside holes it dug into the sand, both by fresh and salt-water. The pincers serve both for balance and as weapons. If one breaks, it grows back quickly. When there’s little food to go around, Krabbys can be seen squabbling for territory on the beaches.


Erza decided, then, that it was finally time to go back to his previous endeavor. With his pokémon slightly stronger, his mind better prepared and confidence restored to what it previously was... Erza makes his way to Route 11 once again. Princess was released from her pokéball and was flying alongside her trainer... who eventually stopped and looked over at her, smiling broadly.

"Hey, Princess. Remember that Blitzle? The one with the different color? Yeah, I need to find it. Help me over, search for him from above! We'll find those Blitzle eventually, alright?"

So, that's that. Erza's back on the previous Route and in search of the magnificient Shiny Blitzle. Hopefully he won't fail again this time...

The girl sounded annoyed by what Erza said. What she said in return made sense however, but it was a lot of superstition... After all, what kind of protection a mirror could provide, honestly? If it ever came to that anyhow, Erza registered the mirror's location in his mind: Abandoned Shrine. The way she said it was always as if she wanted him to know that the mirror would be there, heh... Maybe it was Erza's mind overthinking it- anyway, once the girl left, Erza had absolutely no reason to pursue conversation or to go after her, so, to Redcoast City he went, finally.

The city was a mix of old, fancy architeture and modern buildings - luckily, it was not a very intimidating big city. It was simply beautiful. After a bit of search, Erza had no trouble with location and then, he begins his little to-do list:

First things first, the pokémon center. It was a brief visit, honestly: Erza entered, went straight to the balcony and asked the nurse to take care of his pokémon, especially Princess that was taken out in a battle. He impatiently waited for them to be healed back to full health and then went out of the door again in order to proceed to his next point of interest.

Pokémart: In here, Erza's visit was short too. He entered and asked; "Do you sell fire stones?? Where can I get them?" And once he was told, since it was highly unlikely that he had enough just yet, Erza just bought 05 potions and then left again. Now, then...

Now, out in the Redcoast city with his pokémon healed and equipped again, Erza wanted to rush straight to Route 11 and search the shiny Blitzle again... but instead, he'd give himself a little more time before searching for that pokémon - for some reason, Erza was confident that no one would catch it before him. Maybe it was his sixth sense. He also considered the pokémon gym here in Redcoast City - but it was a really frightening place and Erza wasn't sure he wanted to go there at all. Maybe later with a team of fully evolved pokémon beyond level fifty, heh.

Erza finally decided to stop randomly thinking about things and move on to do what he did best: Finding pokémon. The boy will be searching pokémon within Redcoast City, mostly to see what he can find there - if anything interesting at all. Maybe he'll come across a cool pokémon, maybe a rare one!
Currently at work and can't quite write a long, well thought out reply right now but I'm popping by just to say that Final Fantasy Tactics is still one of the best games I've ever played and Delita is my favorite character development in a RPG.
