Pokemon Team: Kalus
Set during Pokémon Sun and Moon with a Post Kameo: Elements of Power Game Kalus.
Cutiefly is Kalus’s Partner Pokémon and they share a permanent passive telepathic bond which they can also consciously active. Kalus can also talk to Pokémon in general and negotiated with six Pokémon to form a team: Comfey, Mawile, Trapinch, Cubone, Morelull and Mantyke.
Cutiefly/Ribombee - Partner Pokémon
Kalus found a Pokémon Egg on Treasure Island that hatched into her Bonded Pokémon Partner Cutiefly.
Her Partner Pokémon is a Shiny coloured female Cutiefly/Ribombee.
Her Ability is Shield Dust: blocks additional affects from damaging moves.
She is a Bug/Fairy Type. Immune to Dragon. Resists Ground, Bug, Grass, Dark, and super-resists Fighting. Weak to Flying, Poison, Rock, Steel and Fire.
Cutiefly/Ribombee has no Pokeball, Kalus’s Partner Pokémon sits on her and flutters around her, she is particularly fond of hiding in her hair.
Cutiefly is very keen to evolve into Ribonbee.
As her Partner Pokémon they have some exclusive mental-sharing and energy-sharing related abilities that they can’t preform with anyone else.
On Treasure Island Kalus encounters a Comfey that decides to go with her.
Her Comfey is a normal coloured female Pokémon.
Her Ability is Triage: highly boosts the priority of moves that restore health regardless of any other effects those moves have.
She is a Fairy Type. Immune to Dragon. Resists Fighting, Bug and Dark. Weak to Poison and Steel.
Comfey has a Pokeball but most of the time Kalus wears Comfey around her neck; with Comfey hidden under her hair so it just looks like she has a flower necklace.
Comfey has no evolution.
On Melemele Island Kalus encounters a Mawile that decides to go with her.
Her Mawile is a normal coloured female Pokémon.
Her Ability is Intimidate: lowers enemy Pokémon’s attack status when entering combat.
She is a Steel/Fairy Type. Immune to Poison and Dragon. Resists Normal, Flying, Rock, Grass, Psychic, Ice, Dark, Fairy and super-resists Bug. Weak to Ground and Fire.
Mawile has a pokeball but likes to walk next to Kalus.
Mawile has no evolution.
On Ula’ula Island Kalus encounters a Trapinch that decides to go with her.
Her Trapinch/Vibrava/Flygon is a normal coloured male Pokémon.
As Trapinch his Ability is Hyper Cutter: Other Pokémon cannot lower this Pokemon’s attack stats.
As Trapinch he is a Ground Type. Immune to Electric. Resists Poison and Rock. Weak to Water, Grass and Ice.
As Vibrava/Flygon his Ability is Levitate: grants immunity to Ground-Type attacks by making the Pokémon float.
As Vibrava/Flygon he is a Duel Ground/Dragon Type. Immune to Electric. Resists Poison, Rock and Fire. Weak to Dragon and Fairy, super-weak to Ice.
Kalus would occasionally pick up Trapinch and carry him for short periods of time but otherwise he either walked or if they were travelling quickly stayed in his Pokeball. Vibrava would sometimes land on Kalus but mostly either flew near Kalus as they travelled or rested in his pokeball. Kalus often flies on Flygon, although sometimes when their is no one to see she flies next to him instead, he often rests in his Pokeball if they are in small spaces.
Kalus winged and free makes Trapinch earn for the sky. By the time he evolves into Vibrava, he’s firmly part of the team. As Vibrava evolution is not longer a desperate need but he still wants to be stronger and becoming Flygon is a goal he’s set on.
On Akala Island Kalus encounters a Cubone that decides to go with her.
Her Cubone/Alolan Marowak is a normal coloured male Pokémon.
His Ability is Lightning Rod: draws all Electric-Type attacks and instead of hitting they boost Special Attack.
As Cubone he is a Ground Type. Immune to Electric. Resists Poison and Rock. Weak to Water, Grass and Ice.
As Alolan Marowak he is a Duel Fire/Ghost Type. Immune to Normal and Fighting. Resists Poison, Steel, Fire, Grass, Ice, Fairy and super-resists Bug. Weak to Ground, Rock, Ghost, Water and Dark.
Kalus would semi often carry Cubone or even take him flying, otherwise he alternated between walking and hanging out in his Pokeball. Alolan Marowak sometimes stays in his pokeball but most of the time he walks with Kalus.
He will evolve from Cubone to Alolan Marowak at some point while with Kalus. Potentially they work out some of their family issues together.
On Akala Island Kalus encounters a Morelull that decides to go with her.
Her Morelull is a normal coloured female Pokémon.
Her Ability is Effect Spore: which means that Pokémon who hit her maybe poisoned, paralysed or put to sleep.
She is a Duel Grass/Fairy Type. Immune to Dragon. Resists Fight, Ground, Water, Grass, Electric and Dark. Weak to Flying, Steel, Fire, Ice and super-weak to Poison.
Morelull has a Pokeball but most of the time prefers to sits on Kalus, it likes her head and her shoulder.
Morelull doesn’t want to evolve and Kalus will never force her to.
In the ocean surrounding Treasure Island Kalus encountered a Mantyke that decides to go with her.
Her Mantyke/Mantine is a normal coloured male Pokemon.
His Ability is Water Absorb: Water Type attacks do no damage and restore a quarter of his health.
He is a Duel Water/Flying Type. Immune to Ground. Resists Fighting, Bug, Steel, Fire and Water. Weak to Rock and super-weak to Electric.
Mantyke has a Pokeball that Kalus keeps him in when they are inland but if they are near a suitable body of water Kalus always lets him out.
One Mantyke will evolve into Mantine but he doesn’t feel any urgency about when this happens.
I picked a team that I thought would be useful but that also fitted Kalus’s aesthetic and personality. So faerie and fey, eerie and ethereal, with emotional issues that they work through together.
Kalus has genuinely no idea how she ended up in the Pokémon World but she’s making the best of the situation.
She retains most of her magic which means she has; lightning, healing, summon wings with flight, some form of telepathy, probably a disorientation spell, probably a slowing spell, possibly fireballs, potentially some form of summon creatures to me spell.
As long she’s careful Kalus can pass for human but she spends most of her time around Pokémon. She considers herself distinct from both humans and Pokémon but recognises both group’s personhood. She’s friends with the Pokémon on her Team, the reason they have pokeball is for convenience and disguise.
