Bulbos's Attack also rose from using Growth!
The Bulbasaur flinched at the Confusion, having never been hit by an invisible telekinetic force before. This could turn bad really quick, Hansen realized as he watched the two Pokémon. "Get in close and use Vine Whip!"
Hansen bit his lip as his Bulbasaur tripped over his own legs, hurting himself in confusion. There was no way they were going to win this matchup, but it would be disrespectful to the other trainer and his team to call off the battle now. "Bulbos, Growl," Hansen ordered, hoping that the move was safe enough to use without Bulbos harming himself.
Hansen returned Bulbos to his Poké Ball. "It's alright Bulbos. You fought your hardest and I couldn't be more proud of what you accomplished today." He latched the ball to his waist and walked up to Jesus and Bubblegum. "Congrats on the victory, you two! What are your plans next?"
"The pleasure is mine," Hansen replied as he reached out to shake Hope's hand. He opted for a simple nod of acknowledgement towards Akira, noting that she seemed more curt than her blonde-haired friend.
