This is my entry for the
Battle Frontier...thing...Cysiam [ID: UBF10-006]
Cysiam was the leader of Team Magma before Maxie took over - Cysiam became aware, and disapproved, of Maxie's plans to usurp Cysiam's position and capture Groudon and - knowing of the existance of Rayquaza - he stood down as leader and went in search of Rayquaza to awaken it and stop Maxie and Archie's plans to, well, destroy Hoenn.Crobat
"Silver Bullet" is one of a few exceptionally rare Pokémon.
When Cysiam joined Team Magma, as a grunt, he captured a discoloured Zubat with a strange purple glow about it.
Eventually he and Zubat bonded and he discovered he had a psychic connection with his Zubat. By the time Zubat evolved into a Golbat, they'd developed their own language and, before Cysiam and Hokerou became close, Golbat was Cysiam's only true friend.
Golbat has since evolved into the silver Crobat you see above, which is nicknamed "Silver Bullet", "Silver" for short (no relation to Hibiki's rival, Silver).Zangoose
Zuregoose is another of the rare and strange Pokémon. They seem to be mutations or 'superpowered' Pokémon who have different abilities, or even just different colours.
Zuregoose has a lambda-shaped scar from when he intercepted a tri-attack aimed at Cysiam.
His "power" is his ability to grow to any size, proportional to his strength. The larger he grows, the weaker he becomes.
If he grows too large, he passes out. I think it's something to do with the amount of blood his body is capable of creating to make up for the extra body mass. Or something.
During battles, he stays the natural Zangoose-size.Slowpoke
Slowpoke is very, very angry.
He doesn't want to evolve, he beats off those..shell things.
His tail is scarred and torn.
He...quite fankly, he terrifies me.
I'd rather not go into too much detail but his Zen Headbutt is horrifying and I never want to be on the receiving end.
I don't know how Cysiam copes.Salamence
Bagel is a Salamence Cysiam met as a Bagon, on the day he captured Silver Bullet.
Bagel had a distinctive scar across his left eye before Cysiam met and subsequently tracked him, so it's origin is unknown.
He and Cysiam share a deep bond of trust, though Bagel rarely adheres to Cysiam's...exact orders.
He pretty much only uses Outrage, Bagel is a fearsome all-out attacker who is as much a danger to himself as he is his adversaries.Tyranitar
The silent Tyranitar, he has no nickname and Cysiam never gives him orders.
Cysiam hatched Larvitar after finding a lone egg in an abandoned nest. The egg was discoloured and the mother had left it to die in the cold, deeming it unfit to raise properly.
Cysiam and Tyranitar trained for many years in silence, working on a strategy that required no command from the trainer.
Tyranitar is Cysiam's most fearsome and deadly killer though is not at all harsh in character.
Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, largely unlike an armadillo or a Dime bar.
While Dark is the healer of the party, Tyranitar is the caring dogsbody who stays with his friends when they are most in need of support.Gardevoir
Dark, the Gardevoir, was a Kirlia upon meeting Cysiam.
She was sexually abused by her previous trainer.
Cysiam found out and attacked him. He won't talk about what happened to the trainer.
Dark is very tender and shies away from humans other than Cysiam and prefers not to touch her opponents physically.
She darts back and forth between the realms of reality and the in-between world accessible to Psychic Pokémon in order to avoid physical contact. She's hard to hit and rarely misses.
