The two trainers approach the abandoned and nearly-empty Lilycove Art Museum. Instead of admiring the paintings or simply walking past the beautiful building, they feel a trainer-only urge to battle and completely ruin the museum. Fortunately for them, and unfortunately for the museum, the local Chimecho security system is getting lazy, and lets up the Safeguard protecting the paintings! This could be a very messy battle coming up!

Switch=NO WAY All Abilities Items=lol ARENA: Lilycove Art Museum, Post-Apocalypse A level, open, 40x40-foot gallery lined with art. Since everyone's picked up a DSi or 3DS and moved to Sinnoh, nobody will notice if we touch the exhibits...well, we can't, because they're under the protection of a Chimecho's Safeguard. However, this Chimecho has grown bored in the abscence of patrons, and she has charmed the paintings so that attacks can pull water, rocks, branches, and whatnot from the frames.

Uberwocky, or Ubie for short, is a distant relative of the Rekkuza line. Her family holds that, through rigorous training, a Bagon will eventually sprout wings and fly. Ubie has held that belief ever since she left the egg; as a result, she is vicious in battle, fighting as if every match is her last. Although she's gained a little girth, Ubie isn't completely discouraged. It doesn't look like she'll get off the ground at all, but she's still working as hard as ever. Ring a bell, too, just in case. Type: Dragon Dragon: Dragon STAB; Roar has have Energy Cost reduced by one (1). (Dragonite line can breathe underwater.)

Mewtwo spilled some caustic reagents on it, and in his resulting rage, Rayquaza set it aflame. ...I realize the science behind that sounds rather sketchy, but it's produced one of the strongest (and most BA) members of the team. As a result of her time as a cactus, Balsamus is under-hugged and lonely. That's fine by her, though--she's usually able to take care of herself. Just keep her away from chemicals. She tends to get a little...scary...
