He is definitely dead. The other Surskit is not him. I guess I didn't make it that clear, I just didn't want the death to be shown because I think this is rated PG or something. So no graphic stuff. Also what you did isn't bad, you should always respond based on how your character would normally try to react, even if it leads you a way you don't wanna go(but usually there are multiple ways that a typical person would react to a situation anyways, so as long as it's anything believable). Your character seems to be a caring person, so she tried to think of some solution to the problem.
Sorry that post didn't make much sense, not all the guards were knocked out. They definitely wouldt've had time to make it all the way to the boulder, the way which all the guards were in. It might make sense if Skarmory knocked all of them out or something. He'd probably be immune or resistant to bullets cause he's steel type.
No, I didn't really have anything planned. I would just have him get more and more brainwashed and grow close to his Pokemon. Possibly realizing that the Surskit was a fake or something. I'm really glad you did something with my character, it's sort of boring without interaction.
