Tuff breathed a sigh of relief. Now, thinking about it, that was...pretty dumb, right? He didn't know if he even knew Tackle, he just ran at the monkey thing and hoped that that would work. Luckily, it seemed like it did. Also, what was Tackle again? It was the first word that came to mind, for some reason. Tackle. But why? Was that a move? Probably, right? It had to be. After all, he used it, and it worked. Or maybe that was just because he hit it. He hit it, so it got hurt. That made sense. So then, what now?


Hell if I know.


"Hey!" he snapped at Blitzle after her reply to Zee. "You said you can't help, but can you help in other ways? Like tell me what moves I know." What even were moves again? Special fighting techniques? He thought so, but he wasn't sure. He wasn't sure of anything in this damned world, and that sucked. A lot. He didn't like being caught flat-footed, but at least he was...adaptable. That's the word, right? Yeah, he was adaptable. Didn't matter what the world threw at him, he would just roll with the punches and give as good as he got.


He was knocked out of his thoughts--no, really, actually knocked out, by a chop to the head. "F***!" he swore. "Damn you to hell! What the f***?!" It was tough, thinking and fighting at the same time. So maybe he should just stop thinking and start fighting. Except that attack seemed to hurt a lot, and now his head hurt and he was having trouble thinking, so maybe it was better to lie down--"F*** that!" he shouted, and ran at the monkey that hit his head. A little bump on the head never killed no one, and he was much more than no one! He was Tuff!

Kazo didn't seem like he wanted to go, which caused Ari to droop a little. So did that mean it would just be him and Mac at the wedding? That was no fun. Plus, they'd probably get a bunch of old aunties who would tell him to get married to her or something like that. Mac didn't seem happy about it either as she finished her rant with a huff.


Elsa clapped her hands together. "Well, that's settled then. Come on Laura lets get going, we have a big big day tomorrow." She seemed to grow more excited as she left. Pausing for a moment she looked back. "Oh and don't be late. I've waited long enough for this I'm not about to wait for anything else."


Laura looked back as well and gave a meek, "S-see you there, maybe," before turning back quickly.


Mac rolled her eyes. "How can we be late it's not like this place is big. Come on Ari, Kazo wants to be by himself I guess, lets go find something to do."


"I mean, if you don't want to eat, the reason we came to this part of town, that's fine," Kazo commented as he got back in line for food.


Ari looked between the two before quickly getting in line behind him. "So...you really don't wanna go?" he asked.






Things looked to be starting to wind down. Easter breathed out a sigh of relief before stopping as the Dragalge growled out a, "Fine, FINE, if I'm going down so are you!" He opened his mouth wide and began to fire off Sludge Bomb after Sludge Bomb at the group.


As Denku bobbed and weaved between the bombs, aiming to use what looked like a...Dark Pulse punch? Well, whatever worked. Aiming to use that against the Dragalge, Easter stood in front of Dora and summoned his shield. He didn't normally fall back on this move, but in this case, he wanted to make sure at least the Wooper was safe. It would look pretty bad if they arrived at the girl's home carrying the parents' poisoned daughter. He glanced to where Brooke was briefly, a little concerned despite himself. She looked to be in pretty bad shape, but she was also a lot tougher than Dora was, so there was that.






"Not that way, buddy. Keep going forward..."


"K'dennn..." Keanu groaned, going past the light. If Randy thought that was bad, then it probably was. Soon after, he saw four blurry shapes jumping at what looked like four blurry Incineroars. That was odd. Why were there so many of them? Had they somehow stumbled into an alternate world? Maybe that was why they had to avoid the light...


And then he felt a burning sensation on his back. It was like the burning in his lungs, but much worse. The four Randy clones released a beautiful blazing attack that left Keanu breathless for a moment before running away. Keanu followed, hearing fighting coming from close by. He paused, frowning, to see what looked like multiple shadows appearing behind multiple Marie clones. This wasn't right. He had to help Marie...or one of them, anyway.


"Don't...'ttack Marie," he slurred, releasing an orb of electricity that, were he in his normal frame of mind, he never would've released so close to a water type. But he wasn't. Fortunately, rather than charred Popplio, he heard a raspy screech instead. Pumping his fist, the electric type let out a "woot woot dab," before falling face-down on the ground. "That hurt..." he moaned.






Veronica shook her head at first Taiga, then at Scarlet, eyes shining with sorrow. "Truly regrettable. You have so much more potential than as whips wielded by heartless overseers." Her expression turned glacial as she spoke her next words. "And if you believe that the legendaries were doing no harm before we came along, then you are blinder than I thought." The woman, still floating in the air, soared gracefully over Taiga's attack and Zygarde's beam, though she was hit by the arrows. Brought to the ground, she was unable to avoid Scarlet's Bullet Punch.


However, while before, such attacks would have been enough to knock her out, it was apparent now that she had been holding back, as she raised her head and gave the group a haughty glare before crossing her arms and releasing another glowing purple X toward Zygarde.

"Wh-whoa, whoa, whoa, hang on a second," Kazo walked over to Mac and Ari. "Please excuse us for a moment," Kazo picked the two up in his arms and quickly moved away from the soon to be married couple before placing them back on the ground, bending over so he was closer to them. "Quick group huddle here... okay, so, are we really going to this wedding?" He looked over his shoulder at the couple in question before turning his attention back to Mac and Ari. "I know for a fact I don't have the clothes for it, nor do I really wanna go. Besides, I don't think they'd like me there anyways. Do you guys really wanna go though?"


Before Ari could reply, Mac did. "Of course I don't wanna go," she proclaimed, perhaps a bit too loud. "Weddings are so gross and..." she paused before suddenly reversing her decision. "Actually, I do wanna go. I think it would be a, er, good idea. And Ari wants to go too. He wants to see the 'princess' more." She finished, sounding slightly annoyed for some reason.


"Well?" Elsa said. "I'm not waiting around forever for you. It's OUR day, not yours. What's your answer?"


Ari looked to Kazo and Mac before putting his two cents in. "I definitely wanna go too. I think it'd be really cool." It would probably be different, at least, especially because one of them was a princess! He wasn't sure why Mac was suddenly wanting to go too, but it didn't sound like it was for the same reasons as him, anyway.






Easter sighed in relief when the Skrelp finally went down. He hated fighting poison types. Not just because of their typing advantage, but also just how...dirty they were. "Thanks," he nodded toward Brooke, noticing her agitation. "Need some help?" he didn't wait for her to answer before approaching, seeing as Denku seemed to have things well in hand, but the Dragalge the Emboar was facing was still going strong.


The Dragalge grunted as they raised their arms. "I can adapt to any situation, you think you have me outnumbered, but you're weak!" they shot another Hydro Pump towards Brooke with one hand and created a Twister of Dragon energy and sent it towards Denku with the other. Then, with a grin, opened their mouth wide and shot a large glob of poisonous gunk at Easter.


Before the fairy type could prepare himself for the attack, Brooke not only tanked the Hydro Pump but also the Sludge Bomb.  “Now, Easter!” she shouted.


Now, Easter had never claimed to be a psychic type, so he couldn't say for certain what exactly Brooke wanted him to do. But he did have a psychic attack, and now seemed like a good time to use it. Closing his eyes briefly, they opened again, shining with a pale blue light as he summoned a large sphere that seemed a dark reverse of his usual Moonblast, only instead of a light pink it swirled with the colors of the night sky. If it hit, it would shatter into multiple smaller balls that pummeled the target with surprisingly solid force.






Keanu was seeing double, triple, quadruple. He couldn't really understand what everybody was shouting. He saw Nani and Marie go by, and waved at them. Randy shouted at him to leave, and suddenly there was a burning sensation in his lungs. He hacked, stumbled, and fell over. A flood of panic washed over him in a moment of clarity. He had to get up. There was a reason, he wasn't sure why, but it probably had to do with the fire in his lungs.


The Pikachu picked himself up, and staggered forward...before slamming into a wall. Shaking his head, he almost tripped over his feet as he attempted to go a different direction, toward the light. That had to be the exit, right? Maybe?






"I KNOW! WHAT YOU ARE!" Zygarde roared again, enraged once more.


"Do you?" Veronica sneered, her voice increasing in strength till it carried a harsh, buffeting quality. "Then we are equals in this. I know what you are too. A legendary, one of the filth that still clings to this world."


"You..." the Crobat's attention switched to Scarlet, who was now stepping back. "No... there's no way she's... I... I refuse!" Nevertheless, the Scizor brought her pincers up to fight.


The woman's expression twisted slightly in what looked like regret before saying, "I do not blame any of you." She switched her gaze to Taiga, and then Isole as she spoke. "You are only doing what you believe to be just." She shook her head. "However, there is no justice in the world for gijinka like us, unless we seize it with our own hands...or pincers," she amended.


"Gijinka like her," the bat pointed imperiously down at Zygarde, "Legendaries. They care nothing for the little people, destroying homes and lives on their whims. You saw Deku," her eyes narrowed in rage. "That was caused by a legendary like her. And as you saw by her earlier rampage, Zygarde," her mouth twisted as she said the word, "is just as bad, if not worse. Protecting such beings...is that truly justice?"

Tuff could predict what Draxew was going to say before he even said it. Or at least, the gist of it. The boy was almost bouncing off the walls. "I-I'm pumped! This place is a lot cooler than Glass Lake Town and I'm gonna explore the heck out of everywhere!" he started whistling, which was a bit odd, but hey, people had their own habits. The boy then began to place various knickknacks into his room. It was fun to watch him move them in, especially since Tuff had nothing himself. Apparently even Pokémon owned scarves. The berries looked good, but he also couldn't say how they tasted either. Lastly, the dragon--somehow, that seemed to fit what he was--moved what looked like a pink glass ball with a swirling colors inside. There was something about it that made him unable to turn his eyes away, and judging by Draxew's actions, it was valuable beside. Or at least to him.


"What's that?" he asked curiously. "Looks pretty cool."


However Draxew responded, the two would soon have to head downstairs, where the morning meeting would take place. Or at least that's what the others were talking about, so that was probably the case. It was pretty quiet, so he decided to break the silence. Except as soon as he opened his mouth, Noivy spoke up, calling for their attention. Heliolisk, if he remembered right, was the one to speak next.


"It's good to see everyone today! Thank you all for being on time. Welcome new recruits to the Helio Guild. Everyone please look after them and help them out as best you can." the lizard started warmly. He seemed a bit more on task here than he had been for the whole of the actual entrance exam. "Now then, today's main point of business: exploring the northern mountains! Many of you have made brief pushes into Mount Gloss. I wish everyone to know I believe a clue to the current climate predicament to reside there so we will be directing all our exploring efforts to discovering it. But meanwhile do keep up with the requests from the townsfolk and the outlaw board. We have order to maintain and we cannot compromise it. And remember-" he paused.


"BEAM LIKE THE SUN!" the shout caught him off guard, and the panda jumped upright with a loud shout himself. To anybody watching it looked like he had decided to join in himself, but anybody listening would hear that what he said was not nearly as clean.


Soon afterward, Noivy began making teams. She then introduced them to two Pokémon, named Blitzle and Tyrunt. Something about the names, especially Tyrunt, sounded familiar, but before he could think about it for too long the dinosaur-looking one stepped up and shouted. "What's up guys?! Are you ready to do this?! We're gonna go hard!" he shouted. While Tuff couldn't really understand what exactly he was saying, he could get on board with this guy's enthusiasm.


Then Blitzle stepped forward and actually explained what was going on, but the Stufful found it just as hard to understand what she was saying. There was something about her voice, and also she looked similar to that horse woman earlier. Were they related? Or did they just look alike? And wasn't that Tyrunt guy supposed to be long dead or something? Or maybe he was mixing things up.


"Whoever comes with me is gonna tear it up!" Tyrunt's voice made it through his confusion. "Though it's kinda unlucky for you guys that Growlithe didn't get assigned this job. She's the best ever! She'd totally have you guys whipped into shape in no time!" he started but before Tuff could ask who Growlithe was the zebra girl interrupted. The bear tried to listen, he really did, but his mind kept wandering to this "Growlithe" and honestly, couldn't Blitzle find a better way to talk? She sounded like a robot, or a scientist--except he couldn't quite remember what either of those were.


They then started walking, which was a chore and a half for him still, but he managed, though his pace was still slower than everybody else's. He glanced around, but the scenery really wasn't the kind to tell home about. The sky was cloudy and the grass a muddy color that looked more brown than green, though the bushes were better and the breeze felt nice. When they finally stopped, they were split up into two groups, which nobody else seemed surprised about. He didn't like being separated from Draxew, and he liked even less being in the same group as Blitzle or Princess Fish, but he would probably look stupid and clingy if he said anything, so he didn't. Instead he gave Draxew a little wave with a "Good luck," that sounded like an echo of Fishy McFish's words.


The bird guy started talking right about then. “So, uh, I’ve gotta admit I don’t think I remember everybody from yesterday,” he said. “Like, I remember that you were there, obviously, but I don’t think I was able to put names to faces if that makes sense. I’m Felix! Um, I like, you know, normal Starly things and I guess it’s an open secret that I don’t like flying very much. What about you?”


Cassidy greeted the others with just her name, but that was just fine for Tuff. He didn't really care if her favorite color was green or whatever other stupid thing she was going to say, because he had already decided he didn't like her.


So instead he focused on the guy who actually seemed nice"The hell are normal Starly things? That what you are? A Starly?" He realized right after speaking that it didn't sound very polite. "Oh yeah, I'm Tuff. And I'm a Stufful, I guess." The human thing went without saying, right?


Blitzle motioned for them to gather, and then started explaining what they'd be doing. They'd be entering the mystery dungeon, whatever that was, after the other group. And Blitzle wouldn't be helping them unless they really needed it. When she finished speaking, Felix turned to the others, obviously excited. He looked as enthusiastic as Draxew, who had made for a brave picture heading in at the front of the group.


“So, left-hand rule, right? Or left-wing rule? Just like, follow the left wall and see where that takes us? I dunno, that’d be my suggestion, at least.”


Before he could respond, Cassidy did first. "Someone probably should keep a map of where we go...just so we can tell where we've been. Since obviously I can't do it, I'll head in first." She started to look a little excited herself, adding a playful, "I'll try not to go too fast for you."


"A map, huh? The hell is that?" the bear realized that might sound dumb, but at the moment, he couldn't give a damn. This fish was annoying him. "Sounds dumb. You sure we need it?"


Tuff wasn't sure if he was excited. Honestly? He was...well, mainly confused. He wasn't really sure why they were doing this, only that they were. He had probably missed the explanation somewhere along the way. Maybe it had something to do with them being human? Oh wait, no, Draxew had said something about this before, hadn't he? That the guild was a guild because they explored new places and fought bad guys. So what they were doing was exploring a new place, right? Except maybe not so new, since they were new too. Something about that sounded familiar, like something Blitzle had been droning on and on about.


Oh well. The Stufful decided to just take things as they went. If things went wrong, well, he'd just face them head-on. Anything would fall if it got punched in the face long enough. With that thought, the bear followed after the others.

The Leafeon blushed and looked down at her companion's words. "R-really? You're so nice, Elsa. But you don't have to say it, I know I'm fat," she whispered the last sentence.


"Well, aren't you precious," the Glaceon patted Ari on the top of the head. "Pride Rock, that's an, er, lovely place I'm sure." She said off-hand, glancing over at the Leafeon with an uncertain look. "But you know what, why don't you come to our wedding tomorrow, little not-prince. I'm sure we can find room."


"Y-yes, that's fine," the grass type stuttered, leaning into Elsa shyly.


"Yeah, it's amazing! And huh? You two are getting married?" Ari stared between the two girls quizzically, before gasping as a thought struck. "Oh, oh, oh! I think I heard about this kind of thing. It's like...with Juyu, right?"


Before he could say more, Mac was there at Ari's side, laying a hand on his shoulder. "Ari isn't going anywhere without us. Isn't that right...right?" Mac said, shaking Ari a bit. "Who even are you?"


The Glaceon gave a tinkling laugh and put a hand on her chest. "Me? I am Elsa, princess of ice and fighter of superb power. This is my soon to be bride, Laura, and I don't think our wedding has enough room for three more people." She then muttered, as an aside, "then again those lackadaisical fools never did respond to my invitations."


"N-nice to meet you," Laura greeted, lifting her head slightly, but not high enough to look anybody in the eye.


Ari wasn't sure what "lackadaisical" meant, but it probably didn't mean anything good, by the ice princess's tone. "Yeah, nice to meet you! I'm Ari, this is Kazo, and that's Mac," his voice grew even more enthusiastic as he introduced the Gabite, then less so as he introduced the Helioptile. "And, if they don't come, then we'd be happy to!" he wasn't too thrilled with the idea of a wedding, but maybe this would be different since she was a princess and all. Plus he just wanted to talk to her more. She was pretty, and a princess.






"Lemme seeeee, Easteeeeer, lemme see what's happening!" Easter could hear Dora's voice through the mass dogpile of Skrelp gijinka. "More bullies!"


"Yes, more bullies," came the Sylveon's muffled voice underneath the pile. Along with a wave of pink stars that didn't have very far to go at all to hit their targets. Picking himself out of the pile, the fairy type glanced at the rest of the fight with some concern. It looked like both Denku and Brooke were being attacked. The concern turned into agitation when Dora ran toward Brooke, sticking out her tongue at the Dragalge, and wagging her tail in an almost taunting fashion.


"Dora, no!" Easter cried, throwing himself between the Wooper and the Dragalge, glaring at the enemy. If they even so much as tried anything...well, Brooke would be furious, but so would he.






Keanu managed to evade one of the glowing orbs thrown at him, but did not manage to evade the second one. Eyes going dizzy, he stared at the two gijinka in front of him, brows knitting. "Why are there...four o' ya?" he mumbled. Shaking his head, eyes clearing for a second, he threw himself forward, releasing an electro ball that managed to hit one of the Sableye.






Veronica avoided the arrows with her wind-enhanced speed, but she did not expect Taiga's attack. While she managed to avoid the water, she did not avoid the ice, and glared at the shark woman before letting out a huff. "I should have known you wouldn't understand. You were foolish enough to trust not just one, but two of them after all." The woman took to the air at that point, gaining both altitude and speed as she dove straight up.

The evil bad guy bully was right in front of her. Gilly was ready to face him, to show him the true power of a halfling. After all, a guy like him was no match for her! She, whose awesomeness was enough that even a spirit thought she was amazing. Well, Snowy didn't seem to think that as much anymore, but she would change his mind!


"Gilly, Hob, charge it!"


Hob was running forward, but turned his head at hearing Ryia's cry. Gilly turned as well, and, without a second thought, turned her mount around. "Gilly is on the way!" she cried. After all, there were more bullies than just the big bad bully. And this was a chance to be a hero! The sheep charged at the shark, Gilly's ice spear out to stab at the thing as well. While the halfling's sloppy aiming would normally be an issue for Ryia, the ram took care to avoid both the spear and himself hitting the pink-haired girl.

"Catriona, be ready, if they're coming from this direction they may swarm the other side soon as well. If Quatro gives warning they are approaching from that side I'll join you over there. Those two should be able to hold this line for the time being."


For once, her sister's words were in line with her own thinking. Catriona nodded brusquely, ready to move out. She was briefly reassured by the sight of Adelaide shaking off most of her injuries after applying the vulnerary to her wounds. She glanced up to be sure of the front line's safety before starting to move...and froze in place.


Everybody was still standing strong up front. Everybody but Link. His was the one figure she couldn't make out. She didn't realize how much she relied on the sight of his proud, unbowed back as he faced the enemy head-on...until now. She shook her head. No, he probably just moved positions. She was overthinking things. He had not fallen. Not Link. Turning away, the princess moved down, and just in time too.


The southernmost cavalier seemed intent on fighting Adelaide, swinging his spear at her and missing. The cavalier that had just been attacked by their own cavalier seemed confused, and began to attack the wall with little success. However, one of the cavaliers had noticed another opening in the wall, and rode south...just in time to meet Catriona's blade. While it was true that enemies might gather on the other side, it was also true that they had enemies on this side. With no time to use her torch, the woman had to just hope that her sword would strike true. Thankfully, it did, but at the same time, she was also injured by the enemy's attack.


A couple other cavaliers, attracted by the noise, headed south as well. Further north, some pegasus knights winged their way south as well.


Meanwhile, up north, Link was about to breathe his last when a strange tingling spread throughout his body, causing his chest to faintly rise and fall. Licorice snapped her head up, sniffing the air. "The smell of asphodel again," she growled, before looking around. She had heard Penelope's orders to fall back but she found it hard to leave the premise with a dead body on scene. Though if things are going as I believe, not so dead after all. The fox made up her mind, however, when she heard the flapping of wings to her left. Reinforcements heading to the south, and the party would need reinforcements of their own. Decision made, the fox spoke a quick, "With any luck you won't need me up here," and bounded south.

"That's why I want to be let down!" Mac snapped, struggling even more. "This is no way for a leader to be transported!" She sighed and flopped her body after some more struggling, resigned to her fate. "You don't look very regal either." She mumbled at Ari.


"Well it's a good thing nobody's watching, then," the Litleo replied smugly.


"It's just a lackey looking out for the leader. Would you rather I ignored you when you obviously didn't like walking in the mud?"


"Fine! Just...warn me next time." The Helioptile said, once more in her grumbling tone.


"If he warned you, you'd have refused to be picked up in the first place," Ari pointed out.


It took a couple days for the trio to get within sight of the city. It wasn't huge like some others but it was still quite large. And, as the ground was even more marshy in this area, it was built on large wooden walkways that were held aloft by giant stilts. Mac let out a happy groan as she laid eyes on them. "Solid...well, not ground, but look! Somewhere to walk on that doesn't try and drown you!"


"Yay!" Ari cheered. "I don't want to drown. It sounds painful. And wet."







"Yeah, she could have," Denku said with a nod. "Hopefully she did, but it doesn't matter if she didn't. I'll keep fighting and pushing until my last breath, or until I see him again... whichever comes first," He shook his head and turned to Brooke and Dora. "Now, come on, I told my story, it's your guys' turn."


Dora flopped onto her back and the bubble gave a small lurch, before slowly moving its way forward again. She stared up at the top of the bubble and rocked her head back and forth. "I'm little." She said. "So I got a little story. I lived in Merm with my mama and papa. She's a real pretty Milotic and he's a big strong Empoleon. Papa didn't want me to leave but mama...knew that I really, really, wanted to. So she sent Gisei...to bring me to the surface. And...stuff happened, and I ended up on my own...and then I met Brooke!"


She finished and looked over at the young woman in question, falling silent.


There were many questions Easter wanted to ask. Such as why neither one of her parents happened to be a Quagsire, who Gisei was, what exactly happened that made it so that she ended up alone with Brooke, with no "Gisei" in sight, things like that. But he also had a feeling Dora wouldn't be able to properly answer those questions, so he just commented with a "Well, I bet they'll be really happy to see you again." He wasn't sure how the group would react if Dora's "parents" decided they wanted her to stay in Merm, though. Especially Brooke. He shot a glance to the Emboar himself. She had to have thought of such things, it couldn't be he was the only one anticipating problems ahead of them.






Randy tossed his arms behind his head a bit. "Popplio and Eevee sound like they'd actually be cool costumes. Me personally...I think something a bit more fiery would be more beneficial!" he chuckled, glancing at the group. "I could see some Charmander and Litten costumes being a cool thing. Hell, maybe even a Dratini or Dragonite!"


"Trust the fire type to prefer fiery costumes," Keanu teased. "But Dratini, huh. That could be interesting. And probably less strange to look at than a Pikachu costume." It really was odd to see double all the time. He wondered how the others felt when--he stopped suddenly as an idea hit him. "Or maybe Incineroar. You could be Randy's apprentice," he grinned at the fire type. "Or Marie's twin Brionne sister," he snickered.






"Your guilt is clear on your face, murderer." Zygarde said, her voice reverberating behind the mask she was wearing.


Veronica's face darkened at that, her expression twisting into a sneer. "My face is but a reflection of your own guilty conscience."


The poison attack was fast, and it almost reached Zygarde, but the Legend seemed ready to counter. The draconic laser from before came crashing down and cut through the attack on the way towards the Crobat. Thus the attack was weakened as it splashed across Zygarde's hardened body.


The woman braced herself for the attack, but the laser was intercepted as Scarlet got in the way and was struck instead. With a slow shake of her head, Zygarde sent another volley of Arrows at the pair.


"Are you well?" Veronica asked, but she didn't have the time to concentrate on the Scizor for long. With her Tailwind-boosted speed, she zipped toward Zygarde, thus shooting past the Arrows, and materialized that same giant pair of fangs, chomping down on the dragon legendary.

All Belladonna's premature confidence was wiped away as she saw the Starly use a Quick Attack on her Poamoo. I guess this isn't over yet. She sighed. What a pain... The girl yawned, feeling her earlier enthusiasm crumple. This wasn't fun at all, she really didn't understand why people enjoyed battling. "Whatever. Moo, use uhh...that charging attack. Tackle. On..." oh never mind. Rus was already attacking the Elekid again. Which meant that...if she had Moo attack it again, the cow would probably get burned. At least, theoretically. Maybe he'd hit after the Ember hit? Either way, she wasn't going to risk that again. Last time had been a happy accident, this time it was probably better to hit the bird. Mmm...bird...fried chicken. She really was hungry.


The girl shook her head. "On the Starly."


Her Poamoo nodded, looking not much worse than before tanking the attack, and ran forward. Its momentum was a little slow, but it wasn't a particularly fast Pokémon.

Catriona listened with alarm as Penelope directed everybody to various positions. She will be alone with one of them? she thought. Is she mad? For someone as important as her to stand alone and unguarded with one of them. They may be our allies now, but killing a princess of Galtea may be a temptation too much to bear. Or whatever is causing them to ally with us might get swept away by Inera's power.


The lord grabbed a torch and walked over till she stood behind her sister. "With most of our combatants gathered to the north, there must needs be more people to the south, in case they launch a sneak attack from behind." The sudden appearance of their allies to the south had informed her of yet more holes in their defenses, holes she would cover by herself if she had to. It was a fortuitous coincidence that such positioning would put her right next to Penelope, where she could keep an eye on both her and the strange cavalier.


Meanwhile, their undead allies moved into position as well, silent and obedient, though they did pause slightly at the sight of the Proteans, especially Licorice, who stared them down fearlessly.


"Do not fret," the fox reassured Tsetseg, seeing the girl's wariness. "Unlike the other Awakened, these people have not fallen under the goddess's spell. You can tell the difference by looking into their eyes." While she heard Penelope's orders, the Protean chose to stay near the bow thief for now.


The fox watched the enemy Awakened draw ever closer. They move slowly, she thought. And there's no organization. They keep tripping over each other, and they do not even have the wits to concentrate on the entrances. Her lip curled into a sneer. But there are many of them, each of them stronger than an ordinary man. Perhaps they do not need strategy then. They will roll over us like a storm if we let them.


It was then that the enemy knights reached the wall. They stabbed uselessly at the stone before giving up, turning to stare blankly at the entrances, where the other knights had started to attack the party.


The one attacking Gunther had managed to score a hit, even with its slow movements, dealing a hefty amount of damage. The one beside it, however, was slow enough that the attack was easily avoided by the experienced green-garbed mercenary. As for Edrick, his recent training paid off as he avoided the enemy's jab as well. Shiro, however, was not as lucky. While a member of the agile frog race, he personally leaned more toward tanking than avoiding, and he took about as much damage as Gunther had.


"The knights are powerful, but they are also slow," Catriona observed. "With luck on our side, we shall avoid most of their blows." She glanced up toward Adelaide. "And they don't seem to have noticed Adelaide yet." That was a relief, at least. The pegasus knight was vulnerable in her position outside the wall.

He thought they did pretty good--or was it well? He was never good at putting words together, that was more--


More who?


Well, whatever. In the end, they did a f***ing great job. There. Except this weird bat thing apparently didn't think so. Which, why the hell not? "You needed to think your landing through better. All of you could have been really hurt with the stunts you pulled."


"We're just fine so it should be fine right? And my name is Cassidy, got it?"


"Yeah!" he shouted, and then immediately stumbled backward as the bat thing inspected him for injuries. "Hey, easy on the goods, bat...lady."


"Now now Noivy, everyone's fine. I think they did good. I'm impressed they got Two-Beak off the ground given he's bigger than them both! That has to count for something," the lizard thing said while patting her on the back once. So that was her name then. Noivy. Except that sounded wrong too. It was too...cute. Like Fluffy. "Thank you for the performance. We'll be announcing the results to everyone soon so don't stray too far."


"In that case..." He plopped his ass on the ground. "I'm tired, so I guess this is about as far as I'm going."


Floating thing, no, Cassidy, huffed, "I thought we did great."




Soon afterward, Draxew approached. "H-hey Mr. Tough! I can't believe you lifted a Doduo. That's crazy! You're really are tough!"


"Hell yeah I am!" the Stufful puffed his chest out proudly. "Tough as nails! You saw that throw, huh? Took us a little bit, but we got it in the end. I was the best part, though." Huh. Everyone's starting to whisper. Wonder if they're worried about getting in after seeing the amazing job I did. The panda didn't really care though. Was their own fault they didn't want to team up with him. They were probably all crying a river inside right about now.




Eventually those who passed were announced, and he listened with just the tiniest bit of worry. After all, Draxew said that the guild probably knew more about the human-turned-Pokémon thing, and he was in the guild as well. If he didn't get in, that would really put a stop to his "learn more about what's going on" goal, and it'd probably be harder to hang out with his only friend here too. He wasn't sure if the people he teamed up with counted as friends or not. Corbin was pretty chill, and Cassidy had a toughness to her he could respect, but they didn't really know each other aside from working together to pass the exam.


But maybe he was thinking too much about it. He already gave it his all, and if that wasn't enough for them, well, he'd just have to try again next year. It wasn't like it was the end of the world if he didn't get in, after all.


Before he knew it the otter or weasel thing was finishing his speech. "Will the following Pokemon please join us on the stand: Felix, Kiera, Jeremy, Zee, Karliah, Blake, Corbin, Cassidy and uhh tough?"


"Well, damn," he muttered. "Tough? That's like, kicking a man when he's down. Too bad you didn't get in, but tough shit. And looks like I'm one of 'em that have to eat that shit."


"Mr. Tough I think he means you as the last one. Who else could tough be?" Draxew nudged him.


"Oh really? Huh, that's weird--I mean, of course he meant me. They'd have to be crazy not to choose me." The bear started to swagger on up to the stage, tripped, and quickly rearranged his limbs into his normal stumbling pace.


Passing by the large hippo from earlier, who was standing next to what looked like a giant rock thing and weird thing with three heads sticking out of the ground. "So, do you still think I'm too young and too pink?" he mocked. The hippo shot him a sullen look but said nothing.


Glancing at the other Pokémon who got accepted, the panda wasn't really able to make judgments about them other than, Oh that's a bird thing, that's a flower thing, that's a snake thing, that's a sleeping thing, that's a lizard thing, that's a sword thing, and there's fluffy bird thing and floating thing. None of them looked it, but apparently they were enough to make the cut. At least the sword thing looked like it was somewhat badass. But hell, he didn't really have room to talk, did he?




As everyone went their own ways, he and Draxew stuck together. As fellow human-turned-Pokémon, separating would be tough on either one of them, though at least Draxew seemed to know what he was doing. "Hey, let's go check this out," the bear suggested whenever he saw something that looked particularly interesting. Unfortunately, without any money, he wasn't able to do much, but he did talk his way into getting a couple candied apples for free to the approval of a nearby lizard-thing, failed at scooping up toy fish when a vendor took pity on him and let him play for free, and was now looking at a game where you used long-distance attacks to shoot down prizes. Wish I knew some of those. All I know how to do is trip and throw things. Wait, that's an idea. Maybe I can throw a rock or something?


He was about to ask the weird star thing manning the stall, when floating thi--Cassidy approached. "Yo." She said, a little stiffly. "Good throw or whatever."


"What do you mean or whatev--?!"


"Hey, I'm Cassidy. Just wanted to let you know if anyone give you a hard time come to me and I'll bop them one, mkay?"


"Hey hey hey, I'm talking here. What do you mean, 'or whatever?!' And who the hell would give Draxew a hard time, anyway?"

"Personally, I would rather not deal with this," Kazo admitted. "We're deep over our heads, especially since our powerhouses left the team. And the last thing I want to do is place you guys in an unwinnable fight where the stakes are our lives," He closed his eyes. "But, running away isn't the answer either. It's too big, we'll get swept up in this one way or another, ya know? We might as well face it together."


Ari was surprised to hear that Kazo did not want to do this, but then again, the Gabite was a gentle soul at heart. That was why he looked up to him so much, because he managed to be both strong and kind. This is why Kazo's the best, he thought. And he thought of something I hadn't thought of. I figured if we ran away, we wouldn't have to face it, but he's right. This is probably going to affect us all somehow. "You're right," he said. "That's what a leader would do. They wouldn't run away just because they were scared..." he looked down at his feet. I'm scared, but we really don't have much of a choice, do we?


Mac started talking and saying her usual confident Mac stuff. Somehow, it was reassuring to hear. If Mac were ever unsure or afraid...well, the world would really be ending then. But it seemed like their next destination would be Ogren. Which ended up being quite...wet.


"Why is...it so...hard to...walk in this!" Mac whined. "Who can live in a place this wet!? I wonder who this person Cresselia mentioned is...better be worth it."


"Ugh...be quiet," Ari muttered. "At least you're an electric type. Kazo and I are both weak to water, and do you hear us complaining?" While he wasn't complaining, the fire type's mood had taken a complete nosedive since arriving at the marsh, making him snappier than normal.






Once in the bubble, Easter settled himself into a seated position, his usual girly one of touching his knees together, hands draped over them. He watched the surroundings with interest, but soon grew more interested in grilling--eheh, talking to Denku. After all, they really didn't know much about the Pupitar, and what he had learned so far piqued his interest. He had gotten distracted fighting Edna on the ship these past few days, but now there was nothing holding him back. Though, when he thought about it, he didn't really know too much about Brooke or Dora either. And I didn't know anything about Fawkes, he thought bitterly, before shaking his head to clear it. This might also be good for a distraction, he thought, glancing at Brooke.


"Sooo," he started. "Might be a bit late, but, thinking about it, we don't really know much about each other, like where we came from, what we were doing before we became a group. Well, except for Brooke and Dora, I know you two have been together for a while," he nodded at the duo. "Might as well start. As for me, I'm from Northshore. It's where I learned what I know about music." He stopped talking. He wasn't used to being this...honest about his past, to anybody save for the S.S. Showdown, but somewhere along the line, these people had become more than just traveling companions. They had become a family of sorts, even Denku, though he was still in the process of being inducted.


"I...ran away from home," he admitted. "Or...well, I was kicked out. Suffice to say, my parents didn't approve of my fashion choices." Oh, yeah, this was really awkward. Now he remembered why he didn't talk about himself all that much. "Traveled to Trailsau for a bit, but didn't stay there long," his mouth tasted like ash as he remembered that time. The time he made the decision to fight. "Went to Adarid next, fought in their arena for a few years, though I could never beat the champion," he shook his head, a wry smile on his face. "And then I traveled over here, where I joined the S.S. Showdown," he swallowed. This was the hard part. "There was...an incident. Well, the old crew and I, we left after that. Traveled around for a bit, and ended up in Juyu, though I hear it got destroyed. Went to Deku, which also got destroyed, and then to Coldharbour, which, again, got destroyed." He chuckled, "If I didn't know any better, I'd think I was the cause of all of that. Come to think of it, didn't Mioter get attacked as well? The world's gotten more exciting lately, that's for sure."






"People usually mistake him for a bad guy," Nani clarified. "He's not, but that doesn't make him look any less intimidating."


"I think it's 'cause you're so used to being a heel," Keanu joked. "You just have that air about you, eh?"


The Tyranitar had begun laughing when the group made their request. A full on, earnest, belly laugh. "Yes, I can see why people would think that but don't you worry." He paused to take a breath. "Everyone is equal in Trailsau, as long as you can fight. For better or worse."


"I don't know I like the sound of that," the electric type muttered.


The next day they met up with the Pyroar from before. "Welcome back! You know, this place feels a whole lot more friendly like than it did before. Yous have anything to do with dat?"


"Yeah," Keanu sighed, staring at the ground below him. "That we did."


The next two days aboard the raft, the Pikachu said little, lost in his thoughts. Mother, father, Kai, Blake...I'm sorry, thought. I failed you all. He remembered what Eve had said, before he left her. "It wasn't all...he wanted. It was all...he wanted to want, though."


Yeah, I understand that, he thought. Maybe if I had wanted the same things as them...then I'd be with them, and not here...


Then as he was almost out the door. "Thank you.....and whether you're an idiot or not is still uncertain."


That--he cut himself off before he said something rash. "Well at least I'm certain now that I don't like you," despite his harsh words, his tone was mild.


I wonder how well they're working together, he thought. Maybe we'll come back and the place will be burned to the ground. But I hope not. He looked up at the ribbon of sky which had followed the river here in the dense jungle. Wouldn't want them to lose their home too.








Veronica huffed, her expression annoyed. "You are quite welcome. Do try not to get yourself killed now since you seem so stubbornly set on fighting a legendary."


"So...you wanna die too huh?"  Taiga cracked her knuckles, and then her neck.  "Fine by me."  She sighed.  She closed her eyes, taking a deep breath, and then letting it out.  Once she opened them again, they were as fierce as Zygarde's.  "There ain't no use talkin' down crazy!"  Taiga shouted to the legend.  "But I don't 'spose you could go easy on some errand runners for Rayquaza, would you?  Fufufufufu."


"Idiot! Why would you want to die?" the Crobat shouted, before her expression twisted in disgust. "And Rayquaza sent you? Ugh, I should've known..."


"Ray...quazaaaaa! That arrogant bastard!" Zygarde seemed equally displeased with the legendary, roaring as she flung her body forward and threw Taiga to the ground. "RRRRAAARRRGGGGHHHH!" the Legend roared, her body being covered in a purplish glow. Steam seemed to leave the woman's body as her muscles became more pronounced and she began to slam her fists into the Sharpedo, in a powerful display of strength.


"You're insane..." Isole muttered, "but I guess it's up to me to keep you alive...Captain would say."


Veronica watched the quiet Rotom unleash a Blizzard from behind Zygarde. She didn't want to get hit by that, so she would come in from the side. Running forward in a burst of speed, she opened her mouth...and a ghostly giant, sharpened pair of upper incisors appeared, chomping down on the legendary and draining her of some of her health. And then she was back in her former position, looking healthier than she had before. "What a brute." She glared up at the legendary, "You really are all the same, aren't you?"

"Tie her up nice and tight," the man in front whispered. "We don't want her squirming during the ceremony, or he would have words to say."


The man beside him shuddered. "Goddess, no. I don't want him nowhere near me. You saw what he did to the last bloke that displeased him."


"Aye," the other nodded. "I did indeed. Nothing left but bones, and e'en that was eaten up. His magic's always hungry, it is."


"Yes, it is," a new voice right beside her spoke, hoarse and raspy. "And if you don't hurry up, you'll see exactly how hungry." 


"Sir!" the two quickly turned around and fell to one knee, heads bowed.


"Get up! Didn't I just say to hurry?"


Catriona craned her neck, curious to see just who was talking, but she could make out nothing of his features save for his robes--oh. No. That, and his eyes, which glowed an acid green in the dark. She froze, unable to think of anything in that moment. It was as if she had locked gazes with a viper.


"Like what you see?" he chuckled. "Enjoy it while it lasts. Not too long now and your eyes will be closed...forever." He swept past, and the moment was broken, the woman taking in deep gulps of air, only then realizing that she had been holding her breath.


"Goddess, I almost shit my pants there," one of the men muttered as soon as he had left.


"Look, even the princess is scared stiff. Don't blame you," the other turned to address her, shaking his head. "You're in for a world of pain soon."


"Don't go feeling sorry for her. She's from that country, ya know."


"I know. We'd best get on with it."


Catriona woke up with a gasp, heart pounding wildly. She lay there, stiff and unmoving, until her heart finally settled down. Sighing, the woman turned over, hoping to get some sleep that wouldn't be plagued by nightmares. Though that was less a nightmare, and more a...memory. Of a living nightmare.


It felt as if she had blinked before she sat upright, sleep disturbed yet again, this time by her own party members. It didn't take long for the lord to gather her equipment and join the others at the northern edge of the shrine. "By the dragon," she whispered, seeing just what had prompted the early awakening.


By now, the enemy had come close enough that the lord could make out exactly what it looked like. Or rather, "they." For it was a horde of what could only be called monsters. At first glance they looked like normal human beings in armor, though they walked stiffly, as if unused to it. But their skin ranged from pale as chalk to a dark bruise-colored purple, and their eyes glowed blood red.


"The Awakened. I did not think I would see them in my lifetime," Licorice spoke from beside her. The Protean had woken up as well in the chaos.


"Awakened?" The word sounded...familiar, though Catriona wasn't sure where she had heard it.


"Yes. In the past, it is what the people of Mysia called those that the goddess revived to carry out Her will, as she has "woken" them from the eternal slumber of death. The revival is usually temporary, and for good reason, for they are stronger in undeath than they were in life. It is said that blows that would kill a man grown will only stymie an Awakened, but give it enough force and they'll die again, same as any man."


The princess nodded seriously. "Many thanks for your advice. If ever there was a time and place for such knowledge, it would be here and now."


"You're welcome," Licorice smiled thinly, before stepping back and transforming into her bestial form. "Though I have more to offer than knowledge alone. Their blades may be sharp, but my claws and teeth are sharper yet."


"Of course." Catriona resumed her watch northward, one hand resting over the handle of her sword. The horde approached, and it was unlikely they would survive this unscathed, if they survived at all. There were far too many enemies, too many to count. But their party had the high ground and the desperation of the living on their side. But...what about the other side? Did the dead even feel pain? She didn't have the leisure to dwell on that, for in the next second, she heard the clanking of weapons and armor...from the south side.


Whipping around, the lord cried out, "Behind us!" But it was too late. While they had been distracted at the north end, more foes had taken the opportunity to come in from the south. Charging forward, she whipped out her blade, ready to attack the mounted lance-wielder in front. However, before she could do so, the enemy stepped forward and...held its hands out?


The woman came to a halt, staring at the monster before her in puzzlement. It was then that she noticed that, rather than blood-red, its eyes were white, shining like stars. "You mean no harm?" she asked.


The man nodded, and gestured toward Edrick before speaking in a raspy, halting voice, as if it were unused to using its vocal chords. "Believer...brought rest...will help...return the others to sleep." The ones behind him nodded.


"So you were the spirits appeased in the ceremony..." Catriona realized, sheathing her sword. It was odd, but she knew immediately that they were telling the truth. They gave off the same feeling the shrine did--sadness, but also peace. Their bodies did not release the stench of rot, but the sweet scent of flowers, the same kind she had smelled earlier after the ceremony. "Thank you for your aid. We shall have need of it within the hour." She glanced at her sister. "Our tactician is over there. She will give you direction."


The group nodded, and approached Penelope. The lord followed, still not quite sure what to make of these strange happenings, but ready to act if necessary. As she walked, she observed the group. There were five overall--the lance cavalier in front, a barbarian, an archer, a knife thief, and a priest. The cavalier's horse looked just like a normal horse, save for its dark purple-colored coat and white eyes like its owner. An interesting group, and not those who would usually band together. There was a story here, but there was no time to ask. 


"These...people...are allies," it was a difficult concept for the lord to grasp, but she could not afford to be picky. "They are here to fight against the..." what was that word that Licorice had used? "The Awakened." The white-haired woman lingered nearby, unsure if she wanted to leave these strange men alone with her sister. Though it appeared as if the archer and thief were female, regardless, she didn't quite trust them around Penelope.


Meanwhile, the horde drew ever closer. By now, those in front would be able to identify their class and pick up on their odor--that of dirt and decay.

As things got even more awkward, the Stufful didn't really have much to reply to the floating thing's comment, nor to the bird thing. As they approached the lizard thing and the bat thing, the floating thing introduced herself as Cassidy, and the other two by their species. However, the "Doduo" corrected her with Corbin, and it was then that the bear realized that the other two...also had weird names. Maybe they were like him and Draxew then. If that were the case, then maybe they knew more about what was going on, because he had no f***ing clue.


Lost in thought, he missed his opportunity to introduce himself. Shit, the others probably think I'm a Pokémon now. Well, that I've always been a Pokémon anyway. Well, not gonna cry over spilt milk. I can introduce myself later. Listening to the lizard thing, he was starting to lose his faith in this place. Or at least this person--shit, Pokémon. This Pokémon. Not a person, not people, human, whatever. Anyway, point is, he should've realized that Corbin was one person, not two, though...it was kind of confusing, wasn't it?


"Oh! Yes good, perfect. Three of you then. Two-Beak, Scrawny and Fluffy, let's have it!" the lizard thing said cheerfully.


"Ha! What a bunch of weird names, who the hell is Fluffy anywa--" the panda cut himself off as he glanced at himself, and then at the others. Floating--Cassidy wasn't fluffy, and Corbin was obviously Two-Beak. "Wait, I'm Fluffy?! Hell no!"


"Right then, whenever you're ready. Noivy will catch you if things look bad so throw with all you've got!"


"Are you listening to me?!"


"We'll manage, don't worry!" Corbin said proudly, before turning to the rest of the team. "You ready, Fl- Stufful?"


"Don't call me Fluffy! I'm tough, not fluffy, got it?" he roared angrily, pointing at himself with a paw, and then wobbling as his body reminded him that standing on three legs was not as easy as it looked. "And of course I'm ready. I was born ready. Let's get this over with."


He stumbled a fair distance away from the reptile...whatever...things, before looking at Corbin. "You'll have to crouch...let's see...ouch, hmm...no, that's not working...goddamnit!" The bear had somehow managed to trip over himself and tangle up the Doduo's legs at the same time. After multiple attempts to get his arms underneath the bird's feet, they eventually decided that Corbin would step onto his paws, and he would toss him. Wincing at the weight, the Stufful grunted as he exerted himself. This f***er's heavier than I thought he'd be. Or I'm just weaker. No way. I'm not weak. I'm strong. Always have been. And I'm not gonna let a little something like weight stop me.


"Horyaaa!" he shouted, straining his arms to the point they looked like overstuffed punching bags, whatever those were. Slowly, but surely, the Doduo was rising off the ground. But it didn't stop there. Eventually, the bear was holding the bird above his head while standing on his two back paws. His legs trembled, but miracle of all miracles, he didn't actually fall. Something about this pose felt...familiar. Why, he wasn't sure, but it was enough of a memory to help him not fall flat on his ass. Gritting his teeth, the panda bent his arms slightly as he prepared to throw, elbows wobbling slightly. "Gryaaagh!" he shouted, straightening his arms and throwing the Doduo with a mighty toss, straight up into the air.


The Stufful watched the bird shoot up like a...bottle rocket or something, flushed with triumph. He did it. He managed to throw a Pokémon bigger than he was. He was awesome. He was-- "F***!" and sometime in the middle of all of that he managed to fall flat on his ass. Better now than earlier, but still... "That hurt, damnit!" he flopped onto his belly to relieve the pain from his sore tail, looking up at Cassidy afterward. "It's up to you now."

Mac rolled her eyes at Kazo. "Of course I'm going to keep fighting. But you don't have to. I'm gonna help to take these guys down no matter what. Even if I have to find whoever this group who beat one of them are...But I guess I'd rather go with you guys if you want." She mumbled the last bit.


Her next words, after Ari asked Kazo a question, were less mumbled. "Hey, I'm the leader, shouldn't you be asking me? Arceus, you are really bad at being a lackey, Ari, you know that?"


"So you do care!" the Litleo teased. "And it's because I already knew what you were going to say, duh," he rolled his eyes as well, before fixing his attention on the Gabite in front of him. If Mac was for it, and he was on the fence, then what was Kazo?






The next two days were rather boring, though the weather wasn't. The turbulence was enough to cause Easter to drown in nostalgia for a bit, though he seemed more cheerful the longer he spent with Captain and the others. He attempted to approach Apanie multiple times for a rematch, but each time she seemed defensive and reluctant to speak with him, so he eventually gave up. He did, however, get to battle Edna, who was an easier win than Apanie, though it wouldn't do to tell her that. After that, the Sylveon took it easy, not wanting to go into Merm exhausted and beat up.


He responded to Edna's impassioned cry with equal fervor, eyes shining. It was almost like being back in Adarid Arena again, fighting a fire type with an equal love for battling.


Eventually the four of them, as well as the crew, gathered up above deck, staring down at the water below. Soon, Dora ended up diving overboard, causing Easter to jerk forward and cling to the rigging at the side as he stared down. She was a water type, but still...


Before he could decide what to do, the Wooper, encased in a large, somewhat milky white and foamy, bubble, rose up to the surface. She called out to them but her voice was muffled and hard to make out.


Captain gave a laugh and said. "So the rumors were true...well, what are you waiting for? Hop on in....And good luck. I can't say what kind of welcome you'll get but whatever the case it's bound to be more dangerous than it appears. Merm hasn't had many visitors I imagine so they might not be the...friendliest bunch."


"Thanks for the reassurance," Easter replied dryly. Out of everybody, he stayed up on the ship the longest. Not out of cowardice, but to say his goodbyes to Captain and Clyde. "Thanks," he repeated, this time more sincere, staring at a point past their shoulders as he forged his way through what felt like an awkward conversation. "I'm glad I came back. It was...different, but some things never change, I guess." His voice had gone small and quiet, but when he finished, a rare, genuine smile lit up his face, and it was in that moment that he truly looked as young as his twenty-four years, a person still finding his footing in the world. And then he waved, turned to leave, and he was back to his bubbly self, with casual confidence and eyes that laughed at the world around him. "Maybe I'll get you guys a souvenir." It was a joke, but at the same time, a promise, that they would meet again.


And then he dove into the bubble in a perfect Swanna dive, standing back up and brushing himself off. "Well, that was fun," he grinned.






A small smile appeared on the Incineroar's face, especially with Marie. "Then...I guess you better be quick on the diplomacy, miss "adult"." he chuckled, joking around with the Pop--Brionne. "Either way, thank you all. I promise I'll try and make strides to help us out a lot more..." he nodded firmly, before looking at Nani. "And Nani...I guess now it's welcome to the team...officially anyway."


"Yeah, welcome," Keanu smiled. "So long as you don't skin me, we're good," he laughed a little nervously.


Soon after, the Tyranitar returned, asking the group to go to Trailsau and check on his youngest children. Personally, Keanu wasn't too keen on that. After seeing the aggressive nature of both the militia leader and his eldest, he wasn't sure how he'd handle the other two.


But, Marie and Randy both seemed to want to do it, so, sighing, the Pikachu said, "Yeah, yeah, fine, whatever." He wasn't a huge fan of the militia leader in the first place, as he had seemed to be one of the main causes of the friction between the citizens and the natives, but while he had followed Blake, the others had apparently been bonding with this guy. "And yeah, something to give them, or at least something to tell them, would be nice." Maybe they had a code word or something.






"You can never outspeed me." Zygarde declared simply and her entire body blurred. Scarlet's attack was fast but it seemed that Zygarde's was much faster. She got in under Scarlet's arm and thrust her fist into the Scizor's chest, denting the metallic plate covering it and knocking her back a bit. Once more the ground arrows erupted from the ground around Zygarde. But this time they all were posed to crash down upon the Scizor herself.


Veronica's breath hitched at the sight. "Leave now...fools," she coughed out blood, and retrieved a kerchief to wipe it off. "No...good, have to...heal." She took out a bottle of Berry Juice and swallowed it down in a gesture that was both brisk yet elegant at the same time. The woman then stood up, her bow-tied scarf flapping behind her in the wind, so it looked almost like a pair of wings.




And then, with a powerful flap, the wind around them whipped up, each of the members of Team Showdown finding themselves light on their feet, as if the air itself was lending them wings. The next second, a pink blur slammed into Scarlet, sending the two of them out of the way of Zygarde's attack.


"My apologies for the push," Veronica said, voice slightly airy from exertion. "However," she tossed her hair. "Legendary or not, that woman should know better than to boast of speed while I am around."
