The Great Marsh [Ranger Station] || Noon [Raining]
Lu'req 25 || Johvani 25
Making another lap around the room Reed let his copies take over the open space. With yet another Double Team up the Radeon was ready to act, the confusion enough to take misfires and mistakes alike. The attacks did not connect with him, and those images that faded were replaced with another Double Team. The other Pokemon on his side continued to falter, to hesitate and let the child suffer in the jaws of the bat. Were they paralyzed with fear, a bunch of cowards, or truly lost on how to fight for the sake of their charge? Legends forbid, how did you survive Salem.. This lot was hopeless, a liability at best, but the Radeon had to carry this burden to safety for his own well being.
Giving a few barks with distinct spacing Reed signals to his partner to act, and with a perk to her step Johvani gives a single yip back. They had trained on this code, learned to communicate with it when fighting undead, and as she started to run about the room the tall Radeon could feel the Crobat's gaze upon her. Though those outside the squad knew little this Crobat was not so naive, yet the guardian Pokemon knew better; changing the signals, reworking the code to have new meaning, they could use it against those in the know. Leaping to the table and across to a bookshelf Johvani clambers to the top. Rearing her head back she makes a sort of hiss, as if prepping some sort of move. Without hesitation the Crobat swoops to the side and evades the spot she was aiming at. Another attack fires up from below, and another dodge moves the bat again.
Bunching her muscles the lanky Radeon leaps, claws extended and ready to strike. She growls as the bats yellow eyes lock back on her, aggro gained, and a quick series of flaps whips painful strikes at her while backed moving the brute away from her. Though she cringed Johvani did her best not to react, her claws raking at the air as she tried to connect a hit. A few stray Zubats were not quick enough to follow and fell in her wake as she inevitably crashed to the ground, a few more quick to follow in a retaliation effort.
But Johvani was not the focus. As the Crobat backed up it moved closer to another wall and just in range of the shelf Reed had leaped to. Keeping his movements quiet he was able to leap, and though a flurry of wings battered and beat him on the way in the dense Radeon used his bursting momentum to make it through. His claws found purchase in the wound he had already made, fangs snapping about until they met the flesh of a flapping wing. Scrabbling with his hindpaws for further grip he could feel the large Pokemon haphazardly darting about to shake him, but he would not be denied so easily.
Clinging with every instrument he had the savage Radeon snarls and shakes his head, toxic pelt dripping with hate as he curls his claws deeper into his squirming prey. A fluttering mess, the big bat's movements confuse her weaker fellows, and their formation quickly breaks down. "Now, do something NOW!" Johvani barked with the utmost urgency to the other Pokemon as she regained her footing. They would not be able to make the same play twice and could not squander this opportunity.
