    Val returned to the harbor of Valencia island on the ferry from Amaya. They were quite satisfied with how the tournament went, and were ready to resume adventuring. They were accompanied by Grisel and Bahamut, as they had decided to let everyone else stay indefinitely in an Amayan sanctuary, since they didn't want to continue weaponizing Seabiscuit, keep tormenting Dennis with their incompetence, or keep Cherry around in general, given that keeping her around would double the money they'd have to spend on potato chips on a weekly basis.

    All that aside, they also didn't need 6 Pokemon since Grisel and Bahamut got so powerful in the labyrinth as to tear their enemies limb from limb... when they could actually be bothered to do so. In the meantime, they bulldozed all current competition, and Grisel was looking... more powerful? Val couldn't tell, but there was something different about him.

    Regardless of all that, Professor Ivy had decreed a mandatory challenge on the island, for all adventuring trainers: you must defeat her three assistants (who were incidentally triplets for maximum convenience and obnoxious smugness) to prove that you and your Pokemon are ready in every way to face whatever perils may befall you in the islands. A fair challenge, to be sure, and it would even net Val some more of that sweet, sweet PRIZE MONEY. So Val walked into the lab, and scheduled a walk-in battle test with the triplets, while Bahamut filed his claws into sharper points, and Grisel downed another bag of chips. The receptionist at the front desk walked out, and showed them to the arena, where the first triplet emerged from the other side, sending in... a Fluffoon. Val was tempted to not take this seriously.

    "Alright, Grisel! Our first fight since the tournament! Use any of that Auri juice you have left in your system, and get leafin'!"

    Grisel, growing lazy, started chugging the crushed chip remnants at the bottom of the bag with one hand, while throwing razor leaves with the other.

    Razor Leaf missed. Quick Attack did not.

    Val shouldn't have been surprised that Grisel missed an attack he threw while eating chips with one hand, but their mouth still dropped as the leaves gracefully flew right past the Fluffoon. After that exchange, Val briskly strode over to Grisel and confiscated his chips, before returning to their initial post.

    "ALRIGHT. Enough screwing around! Try another razor leaf!"

    Grisel glared at them for a moment before shrugging and throwing a proper razor leaf.

    "Keep throwing 'em, buddy! Another hit like that, and this fight will be won in no time!"

    Actually, hidden power is an extremely powerful and versatile move, even if it's a type as, offensively speaking, bad as dragon.

    The problem with it here was that Val's Pokemon got HENCH for the tournament, which they were all still astral projecting to whilst this fight was happening.

    In any case, Grisel kept up his onslaught of razor leaves.

    Grisel's extreme overleveledness made the battle a trivial one. Some additional funds were sent your way for the victory, even if your experience gains were minimal.

    Tsunami stepped forward to challenge you next.

    Satisfied with his work, Grisel stepped back and slapped Bahamut's hand in a tag out, as the second triplet stepped into the room and sent in a garden-variety Koaleaf. Bahamut didn't even say anything before he started his obligatory crush claw rampage.

    To be "whelmed" is to be neither overwhelmed or underwhelmed. It's just right in the middle.

    Bahamut tagged Grisel back in, not even giving the thicc Koaleaf a chance to swipe more chips. Reluctantly, Grisel started throwing more razor leaves.
