Team Karaoke, Day 27, Northshore
Nikora could barely move. Why hadn't they finished him off? Did they not realize yet that he wasn't going to just stop...What was with these people? Perhaps this was the only hope left for the world as it is... "Very...well." Nikora said, coughing. "We shall see...whose values will win. Pray you don't show such weakness in front of him." He looked up, at Fiona, faint recognition in his eyes. "You should know what happens to those who stand in his way."
With a shuddering breath the Godslayer passed out at last.
The Braviary lifted his body up. "I'll try and keep him locked up. Might've been easier to just finish him but...I guess we'll have to hope for the best. Head to the camps outside the city to get yourself treated." He glanced over at Kyogre's unconscious form. "...Perhaps someone should bring her with, just in case."
Gwen moved to Lok, rubbing his back and checking to see if his injuries were severe. "You were very brave. But now it is time to rest. It's finally over..."
Fiona, standing stock still, eyes wide, snorted at that. "Not even close." She muttered ominously.
Team Alola, Day 15, Mowloo
"...c'mon...don't tell me that's...that's all you got..."
"Not even close." Blake said, wiping blood from his mouth with the back of his hand. He crouched down low and his hair began to stand on edge. "For my Queen I shall give my everything."
Blake's fierce smile grew wider and he bared his teeth fully towards Randy. Behind him his tail seemed to separate into three parts, and he let out a howl.
His claws sharpened further as the Zoroark powered himself up again with a Hone Claws. "This time I'll make sure you're dead before moving on to the smaller one." He darted forward towards Randy, almost right up in his face, but then halted himself mid-charge. He flipped backwards again and, upon landing, launched another Night Daze at the man. While it traveled towards Randy he Bounced into the air again before coming down harder than before.
Keanu knew he'd have to do something soon...but that was the worst. Doing something because you had to. It just didn't feel right. Nonetheless it was clear that he'd need to make a move soon. But...what move would that be?
Team Showdown, Day 29, Groudon's Mountain
Isole glanced down at the floor at Taiga's words of concern. "Not that you care." She muttered, squirming uncomfortably as Taiga's words and actions fought against what Isole believed to be true.
Groudon stood still even as Taiga's punch collided with his cheek. He dug his feet into the ground in order to prevent himself from being blown backwards by what could only be described as a Critical Hit.
The punch to the gut followed immediately after and the Legend was taken aback by the double strike. He enveloped one fist in Electricity and the other in Fire as he retaliated. Using both fists at once made his attacks a bit slower than before but Taiga and Scarlet both would have a first flying towards them.
After this was when Tianzi's Solar Beam fired off. Groudon used his Eruption to try and block the attack with the lava but it wasn't quite strong enough as he was to stop all of the beam.
His knees buckled and his body began to sway. Breathing deeply, Groudon let out a massive roar.
His eyes blazed bright orange and the markings along his body seemed to pulse, moving as though they were made of lava, and his entire body literally grew a couple feet. The sunlight became twice as oppressive before and the lava river erupted entirely, creating a massive wall of lava around the group.
When he looked down at the Gijinka his face showed no signs of compassion.
He was now Primal.
Team Mac, Day 26, Weynon
Mac tumbled to the side as Ankou's attack hit her. Her body felt numb, her vision was fading, and she was struggling to keep on her feet. Yet still she stood. Still she fought. It wasn't going to go down like the last time. Where she wasn't strong enough to prevent catastrophe. There wasn't anyone to save them now. They'd have to do this on their own!
She noticed Ari near her, watching as Kazo struck the Godslayer once more.
The woman's head was bleeding, and her eyes were wide with anger, as she backhanded Kazo. The hit was surprisingly strong for such a frail looking woman, though it wouldn't do as much damage as an attack, and it gave her time to teleport away again.
Though not far enough. Ari, spurred on by Kazo's attack, lowered his head and charged at Ankou.
Ankou aimed yet another Thunderbolt at Ari. The attack raced forward and would've stopped Ari's charge dead in its track...if not for one thing.
Mac pushed herself forward and let loose another blast of electrical energy, using her previous charge, and redirected the Thunderbolt to the side.
She then, grimacing at what she was about to do, crouched down onto the ground and gave Ari a brief nod, the most she could do with her body in this shape.
Ari, with a moment of understanding, continued forward. He jumped onto Mac's back and from there spring-boarded at Ankou, crashing his hardened head into her chest and forcing her backwards.
Team Neo Not Dark, Day 30, S.S. Showdown
Easter very nearly smiled at Dora's excitement. Especially as he knew there was something that she might consider "cool" below deck. So he told Dora so which caused the girl to be much easier to wrangle down the steps. "First I should show you the guest quarters where you'll, we'll, be staying." He paused, having almost slipped back into his previous role last time he was on this ship...
The group continued down a few halls until they reached a series of doors, some which seemed to be more damaged than Easter had remembered, that opened up into simple but effective cabins.
In the first they opened, however, they saw a green haired girl laying on the floor and staring up at the ceiling.
She craned her head a bit as the group walked in. "Hello." She said dreamily. "Are you cargo? Wait no the word is...guests? Why aren't you in the guest quarters?"
After Easter's explanation that this WAS the guest quarters the girl's, already wide, eyes widened. "Ooooh...that's why I couldn't find my bed." Though even after this she didn't seem to be too keen on moving, merely smiling widely at the group, staring in curiosity at Denku in particular.
Then there was a crashing sound from several rooms down and a cry of "Oh gosh, not again!" A few moments later a silver haired girl came into the room. "Ah, Trava, can you help me clean up this me-Oh." She looked around. "Oh I am so sorry, I didn't realize the guests where here. Um, hello, my name is Jane and I uh...I'm part of the crew..." She fidgeted a bit, plucking at her hat, which was tall and pointed, with clear discomfort.
"I don't feel like helping...maybe they can do it." Trava, the green haired girl, said.
"That isn't right and you know it. Guests shouldn't...and she's not paying attention." Jane sighed. She glanced sheepishly at Brooke. "I don't suppose...you would mind helping me clean up a spill?" She asked hesitantly.
Either way Jane would leave not long after. And, once more, not long after that the Swampert who had previously been steering the ship came to the door. Though, as the door wasn't large enough for him, he didn't come in.
He did, however, grab Easter by the shoulder and pull him out. "You, don't think you're getting away without saying hi to your old buddy Clyde do ya?" He then lifted the smaller man up and over his shoulder. "You and I need to have a bit of a talk about your attitude. Not jumping at a chance for a rumble, pah!" With that he carried Easter off as his hearty and surprisingly jovial laugh boomed all the way.
"What a lively day this is." Trava said from the floor.
