The small portal opened in front of Evan first, bringing with it a small fluff of red, white, and yellow. The Larvesta immediately fluffed itself as it stepped out of the portal, and locked eyes with Evan immediately. It was a curious one; Evan could feel the heat emanating from its fluffy mane, and it was hard not to stare at it in awe. Gamma trotted over to Evan, and began speaking telepathically. "It looks like this one is yours. It doesn't seem to be hostile, though. You'll have to decide what you want the first move to be; I doubt it moves before you do.

Gamma's assessment was accurate; the Larvesta looked intrigued more than anything, as if everything around it was new and exciting, but it never lost its eye contact with Evan for more than a moment. The grass shook in the breeze once more, with some sense of normalcy coming back to the Gardens, as Gengar sauntered over to Evan, placing Tyranitar's ball in his hands and awaited Evan's command.

Evan released a breath he didn’t realize he’d been holding l now that the monstrous creature was defeated – had it been a Pokemon? He staggered backwards as the wind surged, shielding his eyes from another storm of grit carried on the wind. When it subsided he looked up again and watched in amazement as the very ground beneath the strange, massive creature seemed to open up and swallow it, vanishing as quickly as it had come.

His stomach dropped as the portal closed. Tyranitar! Gengar! He started to run forward before spotting a purple figure floating towards him through the dissipating wind. For the second time in as many minutes, he had to remind himself to take another deep breath to settle down. He hadn’t thought through the implications of it appearing by portal, and his calculated risk with Tyranitar seemed foolishly reckless in hindsight. If they’d disappeared through the portal with the giant creature, how would he even go about looking for them? Even Davis’ legendary Pokemon could only teleport between lakes it knew.

He resolved to be more careful in the future, and to see what his friends in the Rockets knew about portal teleportation. As the Gengar swooped closer Evan could see the Pokeball held protectively in its arms. Tyranitar was likely hurt after such an audacious attack, but how badly?

His musings were cut short by a strange sensation, of a wave of heat rolling through the air around him. A much smaller portal than the last had opened not far from him; it was a dark hole in the air, and he could barely see through the shimmer of heat. It seemed to show some strange reddish rocky ground, and as he watched the light seemed to flicker – almost like it was only occasionally lit by fire or torches.

From the portal came a more familiar form that he thought he recognized. It had a tan-colored abdomen with a large ruff of fluffy white bristles around its thorax. Strange red spiral growths surrounded its head, and tiny blue eyes peeked from a squashed-looking black face. It scuttled forward slightly on stubby black legs, before stopping to stare at him – and its surroundings which seemed as strange to it as the view through the portal did to Evan.

The portal behind it shrank and disappeared, reducing the strange heat Evan had been feeling. Some still lingered, though, and he noticed the meadow grass beneath the creature was starting to dry and wither. That could be a problem, Evan thought to himself. We can deal with that if it does, though, the other three trainers aren’t far away.

Evan felt the calm strength of Gamma’s mental communication, and nodded in acknowledgement. Gengar finally arrived, carefully handling Tyranitar’s ball to him. “Thank you, Aran. I’m not sure how badly hurt he is, but I don’t want him to wait until we get back to a Pokemon center. Please keep watch while I prep a healing potion.”

“As you wish,” the Gengar responded. It took up a wary stance behind Evan but didn’t make any aggressive moves or further comments.

Evan shrugged out of his backpack, trying not to move too suddenly, but the Larvesta seemed more curious than anything. One of the side pockets held the packets of medicine he was looking for, along with a couple bottles of water. He opened one of the bottles, taking a swig of water, then set the bottle on the ground in front of him.

He had to check several packets before he found the one he was looking for. It was a brown paper envelope with a simple label that read, ‘Energy Powder Plus’ and a blurb about use and safety precautions. The paper top tore easily as he opened it, and he carefully poured the powder into the bottle of water.

It fizzed somewhat as it struck the water, but most of it trickled to the bottom of the bottle. After the packet was empty, Evan crumpled it up and put it back in the pack’s pocket. He screwed the cap back on the bottle of water and shook it gently at first, and then more vigorously. The water turned a vivid green color as the powder dissolved more evenly in the liquid. He let it sit a moment until it had stopped bubbling, at which point he knew the makeshift potion was ready.

Now for the unpleasant part, facing up to his friend who’d just risked himself to save them. Evan stood back up and turned to the side, pointing the Pokeball at an open space in the grass. “Tyranitar, you did a great job out there and helped to save us all. I’ve got a potion here to help you heal after that fight.”

Evan kept an eye on the Larvitar as the red beam of energy resolved into his Tyranitar. The large, green lizard slumped on the grass, and the signs of battle were immediately apparent. Some places his thick outer hide had cracked and chipped, and his softer underbelly had large bruises and scrapes. His chest rose and fell irregularly as it was clearly paining him to breathe, but he still found the energy to raise his head and give his trainer a weak but proud grin.

Evan found himself grinning right back, and the moisture in his eyes helped to clear some of the grit he’d caught in the face. “Thank you, buddy. Now let’s see what I can do for you.”

He stepped forward and carefully poured most of the liquid into Tyranitar’s mouth, who gulped it down with relief if not gusto. The last of it, Evan poured directly on the worst of the cracks and scrapes, carefully spreading it around with his fingers. He tried not to press too firmly on the wounds themselves; even though Tyranitar was putting on a brave front, by the way his breathing got heavier Evan could tell it was still painful.

It was gratifying to see them begin healing almost immediately. The healing properties of the powder seemed to stimulate natural healing mechanisms in the body, ramping them up to heal in minutes what would otherwise take days to recover from. And Evan was glad to see that none of Tyranitar’s extra-dense bones had broken, nor was the Tyranitar favoring any of his limbs excessively.

The shifting breeze brought another wave of warmth to Evan, reminding him of their spectator. “Alright, Tyranitar. Take a few minutes to rest and let that stuff work. We had another few creatures appear after you defeated the big one, but they don’t seem as angry or destructive.”

He stood up and turned around to regard the smaller bug-type Pokemon. The Pokedex in his pocket might be able to tell him more about it, and he pulled the red rectangular device out, pointing a small sensor in its direction.

After a moment, the device chirped out information in a tinny voice. “Larvesta, the torch Pokemon.  They are known to live at the base of volcanoes. They can shoot fire from the spiral cones on their heads, and use this to make a cocoon of flames when it is time to evolve. Considered a rare Pokemon, little more is known.”

Evan raised an eyebrow at the mention of it being rare. “Well you look like you’re a bit far from any volcanoes here, little one, but maybe that’s where the portal brought you from. Right now you’re in the Botanical Gardens of the National Park, but that may not mean anything to you.” He sighed. “And not even sure you can understand anything I’m saying, either.” He looked for any sign of recognition or understanding from the visitor.

Gamma watched with admiration as Evan meticulously crafted the Energy Potion, and with appreciation as he delicately applied it to the Tyranitar's wounds. A good Trainer like that was someone Gamma definitely wanted San hanging around more with; the time and effort Evan put into his partner's well-being was important, and while San definitely considered how his partners were feeling, Gamma hoped Evan would rub off a little more on him. Meanwhile, Gengar stood at the ready eyeing the Larvesta a bit as it circled around a bit. The creature didn't look hostile at all, though Gamma noted the scorch marks on the grass beneath it. Fire types were typically dangerous, however, and Evan would need to be wary.

As Tyranitar finished its rejuvenation drink, Evan walked over slowly towards the small firefly. Pokedex in hand, he gathered information on it before speaking to it in his calming voice. It looked up at Evan even more inquisitively, almost like it was trying to get a better look at him, or beckoning him forward. In the moment Evan leaned forward a bit, three things happened in quick succession. Larvesta's tune changed, a smug (if it could look smug) look appeared on its face as it took a breath and launched a Flamethrower. At the same time, Gamma leaped up from his resting place, but wasn't quick enough to stop the blast.

But the third thing fared well for Evan. Gengar had been watching, waiting patiently for any signal from the Pokemon. And when it reared back to take the gulp before the Flamethrower, Gengar threw its hands forward. Out of the air between Evan and the Larvesta, the water in the air grew more solid, the Haze creating a natural cooling barrier between the two. The Flamethrower hit it full on, but extinguished into steam long before it managed to singe off Evan's eyebrows. Evan recoiled a bit, and gained some distance from the Larvesta. It, on the other hand. didn't seem to mind that its attack hadn't gone off as planned, as it lay in the grass, emitting chirps that could only be laughter.

The attack caught him totally by surprise and Evan stumbled backwards with a cry, feeling the blast of steam roll over him. He still felt it burning his arms but realized how much worse it could have been. His eyes stung and he blinked them rapidly to help, but things were still blurry in patches before him.

The fire bug seemed to be rocking on the ground and chirping in amusement at what could have been a grievous injury. Thinks that’s funny, does it? Evan thought to himself. He gradually pushed himself to his feet and took a couple steps backwards, the blinking finally clearing enough of his vision to see the figures around him.

“Thank you, Aran, you might have just saved my life. Again.” Evan spared a quick smile for his Gengar, who was staring intently at the bug Pokemon and didn’t respond.

Evan noticed the grass withering around the Larvesta, a few stalks blackening when they touched the orange cones around its head. This thing is a menace, in a couple ways, he thought. Tyranitar would be great but he’s still recovering, so it’s up to Aran.

“All right. We need to take that thing down before it starts a brushfire out here, or before it roasts us again. Hit it with a Sludge Bomb, the splatter might keep it from igniting the grass.”

The Gengar nodded and stretched its arms out to its sides. Without taking its enormous eyes off the target, it began conjuring a gross slime around its hands. It was thick, lumpy, and the purplish brown color of a bruise. Whiffs of rot and sewer wafted in the breeze making Evan gag.

Aran gathered a sizeable mass in a few moments, then brought his arms together in front of himself with a swift clapping motion. The swirls of goo slapped together and launched towards the Larvesta, arcing up a little to better splatter the ground around the target.
