    Okay, we did pretty good. We beat the most not weird enemy there. I mean the other two...what?

    We may need to build her DEF. That affecfted how much she was hit. But our evading skills rocked.
    Congrats at least.

    I told you we should have trained! But at least now, we can compare Pixie to her competition.

    Her strengths are Int, Acc and Spd. Now, she can already hit her opponents, so I say for some intensive training, we ignore Acc just until the next tournament.

    So work on Spd and Int. We want her to be more of a Glass Railgun than a Glass Cannon. Cannons take too long to reload after all.

    I do like how Pixie is a bloodthirsty fightmonger, and how Ash is stunned by the world's monsters.

    I say train. Go for defense *nodnod*

    Except a Glass Railgun is worse than a Glass Cannon, unless your proposing that he train to the point where the only attack is a One-Hit KO.

    Your first monster never lives that long though. It's like that in all the games. Best thing to do with it is to make as much money with it as possible, so it'll pave the way for you being able to raise strong and stronger monsters the next time.

    Default Title are Hard to Come up With When Ill

    When Pixie's done resting, what do you think we should do?
    : It'd probably be best to keep training her Intelligence, Speed, and Accuracy. She's got natural talent in those, and all of the skills she has helps that already.
    Right, I figured that. But I meant more about battles. How long do you think it will be until we can enter Pixie in a tournament again without risking her getting her butt handed to her.
    : I dunno... it depends on a lot of factors. I'll tell you when I think she's ready.
    Right. Thanks.
    Pixie!
    Well, look who's awake. Ready to train more?
    My enemies will fall! I shall destroy them!
    I... uh...
    : You okay, Ash? You look pale.
    Y-yeah... you didn't hear anything... like, a slightly psychotic voice that was being... psychotic?
    : No... not realy...
    Okay then... go start training Pixie... I have to go take a test...

    --

    : Hey, how'd the test go?
    Good... I guess... how long have they been standing there, telling riddles?
    : For an hour or so.
    Do you understand what they're saying?
    : Of course not, they're monsters! What made you think I could talk to them?
    Nothing, I just wondered what they were saying that- hey, looks like they're done. I wonder if it payed off.

    Well, I can't really complain about those numbers.
    : No, no you cannot. Oh, and Ash... next week's the official tournament. I don't think Pixie's ready yet, but as always, it is your call.
    Nah, I don't want to risk Pixie getting hurt. Even though she creeps me out...
    : What was that?
    Nothing.
    --


    : I wanted to tell you that AGIMA is having a discount on sparring training. It's thirty-three point three three three, repeating of course, percent cheaper than normal!
    Thanks for that info.
    : No problem; it's my job. See ya!
    --

    : Thank you! We were hoping we could sign up our monster up for a sparring match. We heard that there was a discount?
    : Right you are! Normally, the sparring matches cost 3000 apiece, but with the discount, it only costs 1000. Additionally, if you use your own trainer instead of on of ours, you get an additional 20% discount. That's probably good, because you two look young and inexperienced, and probably don't have much money, am I right?
    Shouldn't you know that, considering we had to give you our financial records a week ago?
    : ...are you from a foreign country?
    Kind of... why?
    : Well I was just wondering, because everybody in AGIMA knows that all the secretaries are sisters. That was my sister you were talking about.
    Oh... kind of like Nurse Joy...
    : What was that?
    Nothing.
    : You sure say a lot of nothing, Ash.
    Very funny.
    : Of course it is. Anyway, I think we'll use Masimaro, my Mocchi. I think Speed training is what we'll go for.
    : Right, I wish you all good luck.
    --

    I have to say, I was a bit worried. I wasn't quite sure of Masimaro's personality. Would he only go as far as necessary to make sure Pixie got a good training, or would he be completely vicious and tear her to shreds?

    I didn't really have much time to consider this before the fight started.

    Pixie started off with her energy blast, as almost always. It hit, but hardly did anything short of pissing off Masimaro.

    Who promptly countered with a bitch slap. A rice ball bitch slapping a demon-girl... I never could have imagined this day.

    Pixie promptly used her energy blast again... three times.

    Which Masimaro dodged quite handily.

    And countered with another bitch slap.

    Poor Pixie... she tried her hardest, but she was completely owned.

    Still, the results were good, and Pixie didn't look that hurt, just a bit tired.

    And this interested me. Monsters learning moves without gaining levels.

    Turned out, she had simply learned to copy Masimaro's slap, but I told her to use it. It wouldn't do much damage, seeing as it's a slap and she has crappy POW, but it was hard to miss with it supposedly, and it gave her something to use in close range.

    Oh, did I forget to mention that? Apparently monsters can only use moves within a certain range. This makes no sense, but whatever. I told Pixie to go to bed before she could start going psychotic again (I know it's her now because that test said I wasn't crazy! I can always trust self-help books, right?).

    : Ash, we need to be really careful now. The decisions we make right now have a huge impact on Pixie's future. This is a very important time for her!

    Great, monster puberty.

    I say raise her INT to above 300 and then replace the monster tutor. Then lets find a better all around monster.

    I'll do my best.

    As for the dumping Pixie and making her a tutor, I'm not going to do that until she gets too old to fight/train herself.

    She'll have a higher Int then anyway.

    I find this enjoyable! I actually wish you would update more frequently.

    As for training, I'd raise HP twice, then Int again. (And since months are 4 weeks long, throw in a rest if needed, if not; train Int)

    Default Improvements all Around

    : There's a tournament coming up in a month or two. I think we should finish training and enter it.
    I think you're right, Pixie's been getting stronger, and I think she has a real chance. I think right now we should try to make he a bit faster.
    : Right, dodge training it is.


    You know, this still looks really dangerous.
    : Perhaps, but so is fighting other monsters.
    True...

    ...and I really can't argue with these numbers.
    : You shouldn't worry though, I've taken all the safety precautions possible.
    Right. Accuracy training now.

    Wow... she... broke the target.

    You're doing great, Pixie!

    Pixie!

    I think you're ready for the tournament!
    Pixie!
    Is that face a bit unnerving to you?
    : Not really. Let's go, we'll be late for the tournament.

    ----

    : Hello, and welcome one and all to the Princess Cup! This tournament dates back ages, to an event in which men risked everything to win the heart of a fair princess! Who will be the champion of this historic tournament?
    That doesn't really explain why we have this tournament.
    : I think they make up this stuff to make the people in it feel more prestigious.
    ----

    Our first match was against another little cat doll thing. I have to wonder about some of these "monsters".

    It was obvious that Pixie had the advantage in everything but Physical fighting.

    Pixie glared at the doll. I think I saw some blood lust in her eyes, which only made me question if these things had blood.

    Pixie started off with a quick energy ray, before moving into a somersault.

    The doll tried to stab Pixie with its claws.

    But Pixie just fired off another energy ray.

    The doll didn't stand a chance.

    Good job, Pixie!
    Her eyes and her smile scared me, but I kept my cool.

    The next fight was again "Pain Kill". I was pretty sure Pixie had enough of an advantage, even with a name like that.

    I have to say, that was one weird fish lizard thing. Things in this world... I don't really know how to describe half of them. I think I was lucky to have gotten Pixie, which was something really simple to understand.

    The match started, and before Pixie could do anything, the... thing... launched itself at Pixie, and slashed at her with its tail.

    Pixie tried to fire off her standard energy ray...

    But the thing began spewing some really nasty looking gas. Pixie started coughing too hard to focus her energy.

    Even through the coughing, she managed to give the thing a good kick in the jaw.

    It was a close battle, but Pixie lost in the end. I have to give it to her though, if I were in her position, that gas would have knocked me out.

    She certainly was getting better, and at least we got a small prize for placing. It would help pay the bills.

    And we were getting our name out there. I'd need to see if there were sponsorship deals in this universe.

    But now we had a tough decision: should we enter the official tournament, or not?

    ----
    Ok, here's the deal. We win this tournament, we rank up. We rank up, we get better stuff, and when Pixie's done for, we can put in longer passwords and use more monsters. We're nearing the end of the first year now, and I don't know how long Pixie will last for. Normally the monsters go through two or three birthdays, but I'm not sure if it's shorter for your first monster. I'm sure we'll get a chance to move up to rank D at some point, but if we don't try now, it'll just be one less rank we'll be able to get. I'm actually confident Pixie can win this... maybe. Like, 50% chance, but still.

    It's up to you guys; I'm off to try and beat Bald Bull. Damn Title Defense...
