BFOI Round 4 by arkeis-pokemon BFOI Round 4 by arkeis-pokemon
Entry for the 4th round of :iconbattle-frontier:

In this round, there are several objectives to complete before being able to challenge the Gym Leader. As you can see, I made each section have a predominant color.

Featuring Harvey Andor

1. Get a Key
Keys are hidden throughout the island and some are easy to find. Harvey found his first one in a small forest clearing. But suddenly they were attacked by a troop of wild Vileplume and Gloom! They immediately released their spores in self defense. Fortunately the rain lessened its effect. Valmer the Braviary quickly lifted Harvey to safety.

Making realistic Vileplume and Gloom is hard. Their tops are obviously based off of the Rafflesia flower, but what about their bottoms? I decided to look at the roots of radishes for a reference.

2. Take a Key
Most trainers who have obtained a key don't conceal it very well which makes it easy to steal. Xenops the Archeops snatches a key from a girl named Gia. Gia uses her Raichu, Jumbo, to launch a Thunderbolt but any Electric attack not named Thunder can't be relied on when it's raining and everything is wet.

I chose KC because she had a yellow Pokemon that knew an electric attack, which was needed to fulfill the yellow part. She also drew her Pokemon in a semi-realistic way like me.

3. Get the Leaf Token
The next step was to track down John the Shiftry in order to get a leaf token from him. He was found sitting high in a tree looking slightly wet and tired from battling. However he wouldn't give up his token that easily. "If you want this pretty little leaf, you need to climb up this tree without the help of your Pokemon". At least that's what Porygon-Z's built in Pokemon-to-Human translator stated. It was a challenging task, but at list it stopped raining for just a while.

4. Approach the Gates
With all three items obtained, it's time to take a little break before facing the challenge ahead. However there is still quite a distance before reaching the gate to the stadium and it started raining again. Fortunately Z's Psychic can be used as a shield to ward off the rain.

5. Battle!
It started getting dark, so what better Pokemon to use than a Dark-type. Harvey sends out Vito the Honckrow, who hasn't seen any action in the tournament so far. KC the Gym Leader uses Shadow the Liepard. Vito fires off a Dark Pulse, but Shadow is extremely fast and counters with Night Slash.
