    Pokemon Mystery Dungeon~Bringing the Fire: Chapter 5

    ((Typo in Chapter 2: Aqua was supposed to say "stood up FOR me", not "TO me".))<p>"Team Dysto! I should've known it was you!" Aqua growled. Sparky was confused. "Okay, I'm lost. What's going on?" he said. "Hmmm, the new guy doesn't know who we are!" Poochyena said, and he, Purrloin, and Noibat laughed. Poochyena explained to the Mareep "Well, your friends got attacked by us because we wanted what they had on them. But they fought us off! So we're pl<_>undering this house!" "Well, you shouldn't! If you don't get away from there, we won't he<_>sitate to fight you," Scorch th<_>reatened. "Is it a fight you want? THEN WE'LL FIGHT! TEAM DYSTO, ATTACK!" With that, Poochyena hu<_>rled himself at the Torchic. "Bite!" he snarled. Scorch yelped, before shouting "Ember!" She sp<_>at flames, bu<_>rning Poochyena. Behind her, she heard Aqua say "Water Gun!", hi<_>tting the Purrloin with the water. Sparky used Thundershock on Noibat. Poochyena had improved considerably, since he was a formible op<_>ponent. "Focus Energy!" she shouted. "Odor Sleuth!" he growled. Nothing happened as far as Scorch was concerned. "Ember!" she said again, once more scorching ((BA-DUM-DE-DUM-DUM-CRASH)) Poochyena. "Bi<_>te!" Poochyena said. Scorch tried to dodge, but, as if knowing what she would do next, he bi<_>t her anyway. Each time Scorch attempted to evade, he would still manage to attack her. That was what Odor Sleuth did: The user never missed! "Say your pr<_>ayers, Torchic!" Poochyena snarled. Suddenly, Scorch began to glow white. Everybody stopped, watching in amazement. "Uh, what's happening!?" Her wings extended, turning into what looked like a cross between wings and arms, with three sharp claws. When the glow dissappeared, Scorch was pale light orange, orange from the hip down. Her crest was orange-tipped, and her eyes were also orange. "Scorch! You evolved into a Combusken!" Aqua shouted. The recently evolved Combusken looked down at herself. Then she grinned. "Let's finish this!" Scorch easily took down Poochyena with Double Kick, then she and Aqua de<_>feated Purrloin. When Noibat was be<_>aten, Team Dysto fl<_>ed.<p>"Thanks for driving those Pokemon away!" Machop said. They were given TM Thunder and 2000 P. "Wow, I never seen anyone evolve before!" said Sparky that night. "Yeah. I feel kind of aw<_>kward," the Combusken replied. "I'm sure you'll get used to it. Then you evolve again," Aqua commented. "G'night guys!" Scorch said.<p>((All character apps WILL show up. Be patient.))
