Challenging Gardenia

Back inside the Ancient temple Cynthia is busy surrounded by her fans, she also had a cover but she blew it when she got too excited to listen to Julian's theory about the Thousand Hands of Arceus, now she is surrounded by her fans and she cannot rudely send them away, so she takes some of her time and give her fans what they want.

She finished giving her fans what they want and told the rest that she has something else to do so she has to leave.

Suddenly she realized that she forgot about the man that she was talking to, she looked around and didn't find him anywhere.

Cynthia "He left, I didn't even get to ask his name"

She sighed and looked around one more time.

Cynthia "Maybe we will meet again"

She said and walked out of the ancient temple leaving her fans who watched her leave.

Some of them are happy as they got a chance to meet their idol while some are a little disappointed as they weren't able to get a photo with her or an autograph.

As she walked out she saw someone staring at her, it was non other than Cyrus, seeing Cyrus here Cynthia nodded at him.

He smiled and approached her.

Cyrus "Miss Cynthia how are you doing today?"

Cynthia "I am fine Mr. Cyrus, what are you doing here?"

Cyrus "The same as usual, came here to watch the most magnificent things in Sinnoh, I am always fascinated by them no matter how many times I look at them"

Cynthia "I understand, I will take my leave then, Mr. Cyrus"

Cynthia walked past him and he did the same, she looked back and stared at him for a few seconds.

Cynthia 'I don't like that man, he seems very weird for some reason'

She thought and left.


Back to Julian as he head in search of other things in this city, after a day of looking around it was finally time to challenge the second gym.

Next day he headed to the forest near the city for some training, he needed to train them properly, every time he trains and makes them grow he grows with them, spending time with his new pokemon always make him a better trainer than he was before.

They grow stronger and stronger, by every day as Julian trains them.

Victini has had a lot of improvement and is now more stable with its control over its elements, and the rest is growing at a normal pace.

Julian spent two days training them in different fields and build them up to counter their weakness.


Today is the day Julian decided to challenge the Eterna gym but before that, he did some research on his next opponent.

The next gym leader is Gardenia, she is a grass type trainer, it seems like she has to sets of pokemons for each type of trainers, one is for trainers who have less than four badges and the ones who have more than four.

Turtwig, Cherrim, and Roserade from the trainers under four.

Jumpluff, Cherrim, Bellossom, Torterra, Roserade were from the once who she uses for the once who have more than four.

Julian 'She will be using those three, from the records she seems to be very efficient in her battle strategies, she has won most of her first challenges by the trainer, 8:2 of a ratio'

After doing his research he decided to take on Gardenia so he directly went to her gym, he soon arrived it outside the gym, like other gyms this is not situated in the middle of the city, its actually in the middle of a huge public garden of this city.

Gardenia is known for her love to grass type pokemons and how much she surrounds herself with vegetation.

Julian looks at the huge dome-shaped building in front of him which is covered with leaves and flowers, the scenery around the gym is also the same, surrounded by colorful flowers everywhere, he sees some grass pokemon hanging around these parts.

It seems they have complete freedom to roam here, seeing how well maintained this place is Julian doesn't doubt that lot of grass-type pokemons want to come here and enjoy there time.

As he walked in he sees more plants and grass-type pokemons hanging around the lobby area, Julian sees an old man who seems to be the caretaker of this place.

Seeing Julian the caretaker approached him.

Caretaker "You must have come here to challenge Gardenia, why don't you go and wait at the battlefield, I will go and inform Gardenia"

Julian "Sure"

Julian nodded and walked towards the battlefield, as he walked in he saw the roof are transparent is covered with veins, the sunlight passes through those glass roof easily, a grass type pokemon can really perform great under this battlefield, and if it knows Solar Beam the chances of it charging up faster is greater.

As he looks around he sees a Turtwig running around at the edge of the battlefield, it seems to be playing.

Julian's wait is over as a woman soon walks in, she has orange short hair and wearing a short green cape over a black top and an orange half pants.

She is the gym leader of this gym Gardenia, seeing Gardenia the Turtwig which was running around just now ran towards her.

Gardenia "Turtwig, there you are I was looking for you all over the place"

She said and lifted it up in her arms, she then turned around and looked at Julian who has his lower face covered with a mask.

He is doing this so that his opponents don't get overwhelmed by him.

Gardenia "You must be the challenger, how many badges do you have?"

Julian "Just one"

Gardenia "Are you sure you are ready to challenge me, I don't go easy just because you started your journey"

Julian "I am"

Gardenia "Ok then, I accept your challenge"

She said and walked towards the other end of the battlefield and took her stance as her Turtwig joined her.
