    "Umm...I'm not the best at battling, so ummm I can't say if this is stupid because I don't know something. But I don't think it is really your fault, I mean ummm gym leaders are supposed to be strong and test people and have back ups right? I mean, they are supposed to fight all the time." Amber scratches the back of her head wishing she knew more about how the league and gyms worked and all that. "But, if his job was to test you and all you did was throw one attack, I ummm that sounds like his failing...and uhhhh..." Amber trails off looking at the new comer hoping he knew more, "I'm sorry, I'm not really that great at fighting with pokemon. I mean, if you pinned his pokemon down and beat on it over and over and over again that'd be your fault, but just an attack like you normally would?"

    They're like training wheels. You need them so you don't hurt yourself or anybody near you. The last thing we need is for you to stop somebodies heart on accident. They'll blame us not you.

    We take the outcasts and make them part of the family. We're closer than most blood families, and I'll do anything to keep us together even if it means making sure people like you aren't running around on the street without knowing what kind of a danger they are.

    The rod is also your training tool. Work on controlling the charge, shift it from one side of the rod to the other. You'll get the hang of it. Then work without the rod doing the same thing with your hands, that's the tricky part. The hard part is doing it in the air without losing control, but everyone manages that differently so nothing I tell ya would do any good.

    You're welcome to stay here with us, but you don't look like you need a home if you ask me.

    Must be nice to have a real job, but we don't take charity. If you become a true storm crow you'll be expected to contribute, but we don't accept anything before that happens. We depend on our own, not others.

    "...Oh."

    Drake's statement and Amber's followup was a decent indication of what had happened - or at least that it was pretty bad.

    At first, he thought it was just a loss, but it sounded like there was more to it. Maybe changing the subject was in order.

    "Well, uh... we're a little early, so I guess Leon's found something else to do? I didn't see him around the centre."

    Then how about a favor? I'll let you know when you can repay us. In the meantime I recommend mastering you skills; they're very useful if you develop them correctly. Good luck with work, and come back sometime to show us how you've developed. It's always nice to see more volters in the world.

    Leon smiles. "Sounds like a deal."

    With that, he will depart and rejoin the others, for now practicing on focusing his excess energy into the practice rod. He'll focus on moving the charge later tonight.

    The practice rod is surprisingly reactive to your power, sucking you dry until there's no trace of static in your hair or clothes.

    You arrive at the gym after a short walk, and see Amber, Drake and Ken talking outside.

    The last damage dealt to Delta was type water. Conversion 2 changes the type of the pokémon using it to a type of my choice that is resistant to the last type that dealt damage to it.

    Gneiss recalls the shieldon. Not much I could do about that. Congratulations on winning your first gym battle. He takes you to his office and hands you a small badge and a Rock Tomb TM.

    Ground types? Caves are a good spot, and you can find them most everywhere else if you get lucky. If you feel like making the trip, Route 111, near Mauville, is teaming with ground types, but the sandstorms there are killer.
