“Arghh!!” groaned Torterra as he fell back from Walrein’s Ice Fang attack. Just then, Infernape quickly countered with his Close Combat attack while Torterra was recovering, and brought the battle to an end.
“Another narrow defeat,” muttered Empoleon. They continued through the dark dungeon that was located in the underworld. The team knew that there were more strong Pokémon to defeat, however they did not know that Weavile, who was a spy working for the dungeon boss Giratina, was watching them from overhead.
Empoleon was trailing behind the others when Weavile swept down and in a flash, kidnapped Empoleon! Eventually, after a few battles, the remainder of the team noticed that something was not right. When they realized that Empoleon was not in their presence, Infernape and Torterra instantly started to shout…
“EMPOLEON – COME BACK HERE!” at the top of their voices. Suddenly, Weavile appeared with an unconscious, captured Empoleon.
“Since you’re all too weak for your own good, you can have your friend back!” he taunted.
With that, he hurled Empoleon at them and vanished in an instant. Empoleon landed with a crash on top of his team, and they all regained consciousness within a short time.
“Come on! we still have to find Weavile and Giratina,” commanded Infernape.
After some time they reached the end of the dungeon. Weavile was there, however he did not flinch at their presence, the Pokémon only chuckled. Then Giratina appeared as quick as Weavile could have ever done.
“This is not only the end of the dungeon, but the end of you too!” he growled in a deep voice.
Instantly, an earthquake took place and realising they had no choice, Infernape, Empoleon, and Torterra used their escape ropes and fled from the terrible disaster.
As for Giratina, he is believed to have been destroyed. However, Weavile still managed to escape and abandoned his master.
