22. Chapter 22

"This is not as easy as I thought it would be," Bobby said.

Bobby was sitting on a rock in a grassland training ground as I patched up his newest small stab wound. Once I was done I took out a Antidote and offered it to him.

"Here," I said. "Just in case."

"Yeah," he said. "I know the drill."

He took the Antidote and removed the cap. After taking a sip he replaced the cap and handed the medicine back to me. I placed it back in my backpack.

"Ready to try again?" I asked.

"Give me a minute," he said.

"Alright," I said.

I signaled to Azure to fly down to me. Once he was hovering in front of me I told him to take a quick break. He flew over to one of the training dummies and landed on it. Then I turned back to Bobby.

It's been three days since Bobby passed his Ordeal and he hasn't had much luck taming his Weedle. Bobby spent the day following his Ordeal in the hospital. The doctors there wanted to make sure that he would suffer no permanent injuries or any side affects from the poison before releasing him. My mother and I spent the entire day keeping him company. Hugo and Ginnette also visited for several hours before leaving for missions.

On the second day when Bobby was released from the hospital he insisted on getting started on taming his Weedle right away. I insisted on being there just in case Bobby got in over his head. I gave Bobby advice but stood back and let him try to deal with his Pokemon on his own.

The Weedle, a male that he wanted to name Sting, was very aggressive. Whenever he was released from his pokeball he would immediately launch himself at Bobby with a Poison Sting attack. The first time Sting did this Bobby was caught unprepared and barely managed to raise his arm to block the attack. The stinger pierced his arm before Bobby managed to throw Sting off. He immediately recalled Sting and we dealt with his injury and the poison. Since then I made sure to keep Azure out and ready to attack Sting in case Bobby needed help.

Bobby spent the entire second day trying to tame Sting with no luck. He tried being firm and authoritative. He tried enticing him with food. He also just tried talking to Sting. Every attempt just resulted in an attack. Bobby managed to dodge most of the attacks but Sting was very fast. Several times we had to stop to patch Bobby up. Its the morning of the third day after his Ordeal and we're once again in the training grounds while Bobby does his best to tame Sting.

"What am I doing wrong?" Bobby asked me after resting a bit.

"You're not doing anything wrong," I responded. "You just caught a very aggressive Pokemon. The Weedle line is hard to tame, especially for a rookie. Overall I think you haven't been doing bad."

"Not bad?" he asked incredulously.

"You've only been at it for two days," I reminded him. "It took Hugo much longer to tame his first Pokemon. Just keep at it. I'm sure you'll get it."

"Maybe I should just retake my Ordeal and try again with another Pokemon?" he asked himself out loud.

"No," I said firmly. "You're nowhere near that point yet. Don't give up on Sting just yet."

"Then what do you suggest I do?" he asked.

"The main problem you're having is getting him to listen to you," I said. "Every time you release him he attacks you before you can do anything. Before you try to tame him you have to stop him from attacking first."

"How do I do that?" he asked.

"You should try the method I tried with Shade," I suggested. "Do you have any Repel left over from your Ordeal?"

"A little bit," he said. "Why?"

"When he wasn't trying to run away, Shade also tried to attack me whenever I released him from his pokeball," I said. "Before I could prove to him that I was the alpha I first had to get him to stop attacking. I used the threat of the Repel to get him to pay attention to me."

"I thought you said that it was risky to try to threaten a Pokemon into obeying you?" he asked. "That's the problem you had with Lilith. She was under constant threat and turned on you when she had the chance."

"It was different with Lilith," I said. "With Shade, I only had to threaten him at first to prove my dominance over him. Once we established that I was in control he gradually came to accept me as alpha even though I am human. It helps that he was most likely an omega in his old pack. He was used to obeying those who outranked him in the pack. It was pretty much the same with Blaze and Azure. Once both accepted me as the leader of our pack they didn't give me much trouble."

"But not all Pokemon are pack animals," he protested. "What about the Pokemon that are not? How do other trainers tame them?"

I shrugged. "Every trainer has their preferred method to taming Pokemon," I said. "Some try to dominate the wills of their Pokemon. Some try befriending their Pokemon like Ginnette does. Some try keeping them satisfied with food and a safe place away from their natural predators. Some trainers use pain and fear as a way of controlling their Pokemon. And some trainers wait and see what the best method is for each individual Pokemon like Hugo does."

"What method do you think will work best for Sting?" he asked.

"First we get him to stop attacking you," I said. "Sting's proven that just recalling him into his pokeball is not enough. That's why we need the Repel. The next time you release him spray some Repel in his direction when he tries to attack you."

"You think that will get him to stop attacking me?" he asked.

"It should," I said. "No Pokemon that breathes air likes Repel but it's worse for Bug type Pokemon. Enough Repel can even kill them. Spray him once with it and he should hesitate the next time you release him."

"Then what?" he asked.

"Then you show him who's boss," I said. "Luckily for you Weedle, Kakuna and Beedrill live in social groups. Also, unlike Combee and Vespiquen, they are not mindless drones. Male Combee are not capable of thought or emotion at all, only the females are. That's why trainers don't bother catching male Combee, they would not be able to tame them since there is nothing to tame. Weedle and their evolutions are actual individuals. Beedrill hives are ruled by the strongest Beedrill, much like a pack."

"So you think I should try to dominate Sting like you did Shade?" he asked.

"I think its your best bet," I said.

He thought about that for a moment then stood up. After ruffling through his backpack for a moment he took out his can of Repel.

"Let's try this again," he said.

I signaled Azure to ready himself again. He hopped off the training dummy and flew back up. Once he was ready I stepped back and nodded to Bobby. Bobby took a deep breath then raised his pokeball. He looked at the Repel in his other hand for a second then released Sting.

Just like every other time he was released, Sting immediately launched himself at Bobby. This time instead of trying to dodge the Poison Sting attack Bobby quickly raised the can of Repel and sprayed some at Sting. As soon as Sting touched the Repel mist he dropped to the ground. He began rolling around on the ground while making some pained sounds.

"Recall him," I said.

Bobby raised his pokeball again and recalled Sting. Once he was sucked back into his pokeball Bobby turned back to me.

"Well?" he asked.

"Good," I said. "Give the pokeball a couple of minutes to deal with the Repel then release him again. He'll most likely try to attack you again so be ready to spray him."

We both waited for a couple of minutes before Bobby released Sting again. Once again he tried to attack Bobby but I noticed this time that he didn't attack immediately after being released. Bobby had plenty of time to raise the Repel and spray him again. After allowing Sting to roll around for a few seconds Bobby recalled him again. We waited for a couple of minutes again before Bobby released him.

This time Sting did not try to attack after he materialized. Instead, he curled up into a ball and began shivering. Bobby looked at me and I motioned him forward. He walked cautiously up to Sting. When Sting noticed Bobby moving closer with the Repel can he curled up tighter. Bobby stopped when he was a few steps away from him.

"Are you done trying to attack me?" he asked Sting. "I don't want to have to spray you again but I will if I have to."

Sting made no indication that he even heard Bobby. He just remained curled up defensively. After a moment Bobby moved closer and kneeled down next to him. I tensed up and motioned Azure to be ready.

"Look," he said. "I get that you didn't want this but you're just going to have to deal with it. I caught you and that means that either you listen to me or I have to put you down and start over with another Pokemon. I would rather not have to do that so let's both make the best of this situation."

Sting finally lifted his head and stared at Bobby. When he made no move to attack Bobby he sat down with his legs crossed. He reached into one of his pockets and took out a handful of the berries that he was trying to bribe Sting with before.

"You must be hungry," Bobby said. "Here. Eat as much as you want."

Bobby lowered his hand and offered Sting the berries. Sting stared at the berries then at Bobby. After a few seconds he crept forward and took a berry from Bobby's hand. He quickly moved back and ate the berry. After staring at Bobby for a moment he crept forward again. This time instead of just taking a berry he crawled onto Bobby's arm a proceeded to eat the berries.

Bobby turned to grin at me. I gave him a thumbs up but did not relax just yet. Just in case this was a trick I stood ready to order Azure to attack. However, it seemed that Bobby finally got through to Sting. After he was done eating his meal he gave Bobby his full attention. Bobby began speaking to him quietly. After watching them for a few minutes I relaxed and sat on the same rock that Bobby was on. I called Azure back down and he landed on my arm.

Bobby was speaking to Sting for almost 20 minutes. Finally, he stood up slowly and allowed Sting to crawl up to his shoulder. Once Sting was comfortable Bobby walked over to me. I stood up when he was a couple of feet away. Sting eyed me and Azure cautiously but did not make any moves to attack us.

"Well?" I asked.

"We've come to an agreement," Bobby said.

"He's going to cooperate?" I asked.

"Let's see," he said.

Bobby moved over to a training dummy and set Sting down in front of it. He then moved back. For the next hour or so they worked on basic commands as well as attack commands while Azure and I watched. Once in a while I would chime in with some advice but for the most part Bobby did well on his own. Bobby stopped the training session when he saw that Sting was getting tired. He picked him back up and set him back on his shoulder.

Bobby and I decided to walk around the training grounds for a while. I released Shade and let him run around us while Azure flew back up. Sting stayed on Bobby's shoulder while we walked.

"So when do you want to take your exam?" I asked him.

He thought about it for a second. "I think I want to spend the day tomorrow training Sting," he said. "The day after tomorrow I'll go over to the gym to ask for the exam."

"Good," I said. "Make sure that Sting is ready for it or you'll have to retake it the next day."

"What about you?" he asked me. "You met your one year requirement didn't you? You're eligible to take the C-rank exam now. When are you going to take it?"

"Tomorrow," I said. "I already made the appointment with Muliere. Apparently I cant just walk in like I did with the D-rank exam. Muliere needs to prepare for my exam."

"I wonder how he's going to test you," he said.

"I'll see tomorrow," I said.

"Do you think you're ready?" he asked.

"Apparently there is a betting pool on whether or not I'll pass it on my first try," I said dryly. "I hear that most of the trainers in the pool are betting that I'll pass it. I'll do my best tomorrow. If I have to retake it then I will. At least the second time I'll know what to expect."

"I hope you pass it tomorrow," he said.

"Me too," I said. "I want to take C-rank missions right away. We need a bigger apartment."

"Sorry," he said. "I can move to the Center barracks until I can afford my own place if you want."

"I wasn't complaining," I told him. "I would rather we live together, at least until you want your own place. But you have to admit it's a little crowded in there for the two of us and my Pokemon. Luckily Sting is so small, having him in the apartment wont make any real difference."

"I guess," he said. "We'll need more room for when I capture more Pokemon too."

"That reminds me," I said. "I didn't ask you before, did you have any pokeballs left over from your Ordeal?"

"Two," he said.

I looked at him in surprise.

"Two?" I asked. "How did you manage that?"

"I managed to retrieve the pokeballs on my other attempts to capture Pokemon," he said. "The Repel came in handy, most of the Pokemon I failed to capture ran off after I sprayed them."

"Still," I said. "You're very lucky to have all three of the pokeballs you started out with. Ginnette and I each came back with one extra. Hugo didn't come back with any extra at all."

"That just means I'll be able to capture more Pokemon soon," he said cheerfully. "I don't have to save up any money to buy more any time soon."

"You're going to need to capture at least one soon," I said.

He frowned. "Why do you say that?" he asked.

"Caterpillar Pokemon evolve quickly," I said. "I give it a month max before Sting evolves into his Kakuna stage. Once he does evolve it will be hard for you on missions if you come across wild Pokemon. Kakuna can still fight but they can only hop around slowly. It's better for you to just have another Pokemon you can use on missions until he evolves into a Beedrill."

"I didn't think about that," he said. "You're right. I'll probably go out into the Wilds next week to try to capture another one."

"Don't go out alone," I said. "There aren't many Pokemon in the Wilds that Weedle are able to beat on their own. That's why they stay within their hive's territory. Take me or Ginnette or Hugo with you when you go. Please."

"I will," he promised. "Don't worry."

"Thanks," I said. "I'm getting hungry. Let's go get some food."

"Okay," he said.

I called Shade and Azure back to us. We turned in the direction of the residential buildings and made our way back home.
