Brutal Trainer

Brutal Trainer


There is such thing as a "brutal trainer." Lashers beat their Pokemon, crushing their will. Fearmongers can be considered brutal, as their extreme tactics cause fear in all but the strongest of souls. Few, however, are quite the same as a Brutal Trainer. While others focus themselves to force their Pokemon to become harsher, the Brutal Trainer inspires his Pokemon to enjoy it. The Pokemon of a Brutal Trainer are forced to fear his hand to become brutal; they begin to enjoy the rush of battle, the thrill. That burst of adrenaline as a foe falls to the ground. That feeling as a foe begins to flee, only to be stopped by their mighty jaws. A Brutal Trainer expects his Pokemon to win, and only gets stronger as they do that. Anybody cowardly enough to run from a battle with a Brutal Trainer can expect severe consequences.
