Team Elite - "Because Money Talks!"

In case you forgot, got lazy, don't feel like opening up another browser tab to go back to the sign up thread, or whatever, here's all the fun and juicy plot stuff again.


HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN

Back in the 1980s, when decent music still existed, the government of Unova invested big bucks into a scientific research firm called JRD, yet another acronym that no one remembers what exactly it stood for. And like many other things the government invested in, they simply forgot about it, didn't audit their balance sheets, and continued to cut checks and unknowingly fund a bunch of mad scientists that were pretty much allowed to do whatever they want and keep collecting money that people were paying taxes for.

For thirty years, JRD existed in the shadows, only they called themselves Neo Genesis because JRD wasn't really a creative name anyway. In truth, most people would have browned their pants if they knew what Neo Genesis was doing with poor captured Pokémon that were really not asking for any trouble. And every now and then, they'd hire interns from a sappy job board online, promise "great growth opportunities" and no one would ever hear from them again, not sure if they became full time employees and just never called home, or if they got turned into a Pikachu and have been stuck in a cage running a giant hamster wheel to power the coffee maker. Thanks to Neo Genesis, they created over four hundred new Pokémon species in underground labs across Unova that no one even got to know about, as well as did other crazy creations involving screwing around with genetics.

And for over thirty years, they enjoyed it, but after a while, they realized no one really got to see the fruits of their labor as they kept everything secret. And it didn't take very long for them to get that screwed in the head to want to find ways to share what they made... all at once. After doing all kinds of crazy, inhuman things to themselves and other Pokémon, they decided humans were too old school to continue loafing around, being all human-like. Humans, to Neo Genesis, were like hula hoops and disco clubs trying to exist today. Or like going into an ice cream parlor that serves a hundred different flavors and then be a silly twit by choosing vanilla.

Enter Revelation Mutagen Gas. It was Neo Genesis's way of deciding to put a really quirky mark on the history books by, well, wanting to change humans into half-human, half-Pokémon creatures called "Pokémorphs," kind of like what many of them had done to themselves already. Or in some cases, "Chimeras," where they were nuts enough to take their favorite parts of multiple Pokémon and tack it all onto themselves in one package, like the fur of one Pokémon, wings of another, some other Pokémon's tail, the colors of another Pokémon, and the fun went on, as if what Arceus made was just a bunch of Legos to screw around with and then wear in the form of a permanent Halloween costume.

Anyway, Revelation Mutagen Gas, called RMG for people too lazy to say the whole thing, was generously unleashed upon Unova via twelve massive canisters opened like pińatas in the middle of Nimbasa City in a warehouse no one bothered to check out until the whole thing blew up. It didn't take very long for people to freak out, and in the beginning, people thought the gas was lethal. Nimbasa City was frantically evacuated, and it didn't take very long before people found out what the gas did. Only 7% of Nimbasa's citizens were "infected," but it was discovered that it was possible to be infected multiple times, ending up with the attributes of one Pokémon and then have another one's tacked on, and another one's after that, and so on, making a real mess out of things.

The gas kept spreading all over Unova, and travel businesses and cruiseliners, not expecting such a high demand in the "LET'S GET THE FRICK OUT OF HERE" industry to suddenly pick up, got paid a pretty penny for shipping people out. But, soon enough, checkpoints were set up, and anyone with any bit of RMG on them was barred from leaving Unova and quickly deported away from the docks, as people feared the frick out of RMG. Unova, as it was, became quarantined. The Unova government was proud to declare that 85% of the population managed to escape from Unova and be shipped off to Sinnoh, Johto, or wherever. As for the remaining 15% somewhere out there, well, Unova wished them the best of luck. The polite way of saying "you're screwed."

THE FOUNDING OF TEAM ELITE

Unova realized their major goof up after checking out the books again and someone actually smart made the connection between the insane Neo Genesis and JRD, which was actually supposed to stand for "Joint Research Division" back on a 1981 manual that had already yellowed quite nicely in the archives. Problem was, the Unova government officials no longer had their Unova stuff, including their shiny offices, their new exotic cars, their shore houses, and if word got out that they really screwed up, well, things would get ugly.

They needed someone to, well, take care of the Neo Genesis problem. And the fact they let out over 800 new science-created Pokémon just go gallivanting into the Unova wilderness while Pokémorphs and Chimeras were walking around in Unova, having no idea what was to become of them, didn't look so hot either. They needed someone to clean up the mess and find a solution. And they felt sending the military would make things look too dire and political. Already, they had assure the Unova citizens that this was just a minor hiccup that would soon be solved, all the while keeping things quiet about the real nature of how things went down... the toilet.

So, who did they hire if it wasn't the military? Well, talented Pokémon trainers like yourself, of course! With an extra chunk of money from cutting off funding to "JRD," they could pay each trainer they hired fifty million dollars each to head into Unova and put an end to Neo Genesis, and maybe find a way to clean up the gas, round up the wild Pokémon that really shouldn't have existed and maybe put them into a goofy zoo, and find something to address the Pokémorph/Chimera thing. Hopefully. Great deal, huh? Because yeah, otherwise Unova is fully in Neo Genesis's hands, and that could get ugly. Like the burrito you hid in the glove compartment and only discovered two weeks later.

And so, the Unova government quietly hired you as "Team Elite," given the mission to head into a region now thick with mutagen chemical gases, strange new Pokémon, Unova citizens that have probably lost their marbles over what they have become, and well, other fun stuff. But that's good, because Trainers like you are prepared for adventure, right?

And I repeat, fifty million dollars! Just as long as you keep the truth hushed up, okay?

MECHANICS (NOT THE ONES THAT WORK ON YOUR CAR)

You're a Unova citizen who managed to be one of the lucky 85% of the people that evacuated before they closed the gates. Okay, not all that lucky, but still. Or you're someone from the outside that caught their interest, because you're just that extra special. Either way, the Unova government is sending you back into Unova to make things right, hopefully find something to undo the damage, and generally make sure Neo Genesis won't be a problem anymore, whatever that might entail.

The Unova officials gave you a gas mask, a badass night-camouflage uniform, high-tech radio equipment, and even whatever weapon(s) you wanted to have to make you feel cool and get motivated for a mission like you were some special black ops, A-Team, or otherwise macho elite commando ready to kick tail and chew bubble gum when really... no. There's a few things you should know too.

The gas mask doesn't actually work against RMG, so every time you make an RP post, you have a 10% chance (randomized rolls courtesy of random.org!) of having your character become infected and become a Pokémorph of a Pokémon. So every time a 10 or below pops up, you're infected with RMG!

"Uhh, yeah, so what happens when I get infected with RMG?"

When you get infected by RMG (after you're all done cursing your luck), you'll be presented with three Pokémon chosen by random (random.org, that is!), 1-649. All your favorites and all the ones you can't stand. So let's use an example, Jackie Williams, a hotshot and kickass-looking female trainer.

So let's say Jackie Williams makes a post, and on the randomized roll of 1-100 to see if she gets infected, she gets a 7 when I do the rolls. Since this is under 10, she gets infected with RMG! And this is where the fun begins.

So, after that, a randomized roll of 1-649 occurs three times. So, after trying it, this is what she gets to choose from:

#414 - Mothim
#255 - Torchic
#340 - Whiscash

Okay, so let's say she goes with Mothim. So her character transforms into a Mothim Pokémorph on her next post.

Since her luck sucks, let's say she gets infected again on her next post, and now she gets three more.

#623 - Golurk
#491 - Darkrai
#497 - Serperior

No contest here, she goes with Darkrai on this one (actually got pretty lucky!). So she can do just about anything that adds the Darkrai stuff to her already existing Mothim Pokémorph form, such as changing her colors to reflect Darkrai's and/or adding in the smoke-like features that Darkrai has.

Let's say she gets infected again.

#106 - Hitmonlee
#358 - Chimecho
#198 - Murkrow

She goes with Murkrow and gives herself that feathery Murkrow tail, and maybe the funny witch's hat crest that a Murkrow has as well, tacked on to all the things she has already. So actually, she doesn't look too half bad in the end.

And it goes on and on. See how it works? But yes, none of the forms can be completely "overwritten" which means at least something of the previous forms should still be there. Like she can't scrap the Mothim or Murkrow stuff by replacing it with whatever she gets next and make it seem like she never even got those. But don't panic if you get weird or stupid stuff, there will be ways to play around with this and possibly undo it later on in the RP. But that won't be for a while.

Oh yeah, and after being dropped in Nimbasa City, scene of the crime, you suddenly realize your radio equipment is only strong enough to reach your fellow team members. Something is now blocking long-range communications, so you can't contact HQ for more help... not like they would give it to you anyway.

And so begins the mission and the investigation to find the mad scientists of Neo Genesis and whatever more weirdness they've cooked up for dinner.

And let's not forget... fifty million dollars!

RULES

Absolutely no punching, no kicking, no screaming, and keep your hands and feet to yourself for the duration of the ride. Just kidding.
Follow SPPF's rules. Don't want to get this locked now, right?
God-modding... eh, whatever. Have a good time, as long as it's not super-lame and spoils the fun for everyone else. I'm okay with people busting out funny and outlandish stuff in an RP like this.
Slapping rabbit ears on someone and bunnying them is okay if they give you the green light to do so because they're leaving on vacation to somewhere in Djibouti or wherever. But dude, don't do it if they didn't say you could. It's lame.
When the plane is about to land, observe the no-smoking and seatbelt signs, and put your tray tables up and your seats back in the full, upright position. After the plane has landed, take all your personal carry-on bags and personal belongings from the overhead compartment.
You're free to make as many characters as you like. Just don't make them lonely by neglecting them! You wouldn't want that done to you!
Stuff should be no worse than PG13. Violence is great, but don't jump all over the idea of slapping ridiculous sexual or racist content in your posts. It's just... mean.
Be creative and make your own plot twists, I'm okay with that. Be a player, not a spectator!

INFECTION CHECKS
Remember, 10% chance every post! Anything "10" or less on the random roll of 1-100 means you're infected!

Alex Waters (Post #2) - Infection roll was 51

Still Human
Nimbasa City, Unova

Couldn't go wrong with fifty million bucks and the chance to do something kickass that most people never even got the chance to do. They took us over in several helicopters to Nimbasa City, hoping to find some kind of evidence regarding Neo Genesis and where they were hiding. When ours landed and my can of Red Bull was knocked over, I headed out and scoped out the area. Without a doubt, it was pretty clear people left this place in a panic, like the time the toilet exploded in the men's room. Picnic tables were knocked over, trash was all over the ground, and I could have sworn I saw someone's underpants over the in the grass, but I sure wasn't going to head over there to take a closer look...

The rest of Nimbasa City looked like some kind of zombie apocalypse happened, just without the zombies. What was around, however, were new Pokémon. Some of them new as in "fresh off the grill from mad scientists in Neo Genesis" while others were "some former humans so transformed that they couldn't be distinguished from other "new Pokémon.'" Kind of made me wonder if they'd still be saying their names. That was pretty helpful when it came to trying to remember what they were called again!

Judging from the brief instructions, the warehouse where the RMG canisters were set off was around Shady Hill Drive. If this map they printed out for me was right, well, this place had been abandoned for a while now. There were no signs of life around here, although we had been warned that Unova was now home to hundreds of new, weird Pokémon that Neo Genesis decided to play around with.

I arrived at the warehouse a few minutes later after using the map in combination with the GPS on my phone. Man, this place was blown up sky high. Even took out a few of the surrounding buildings as well. My big question was how the heck did they get these gigantic canisters in this place to begin with? Wouldn't have someone noticed something?

Regardless, the place was a mess. Piles of twisted metal, broken wood, bits and panels of the roof were everywhere, and papers were scattered all of the place. How the heck were we supposed to locate Neo Genesis's hideout with only this?

"Wow..." One of the other Team Elite members said in admiration. "Ha ha, just... wow, they really popped this place good."

I turned around and saw she was a pretty attractive female with long, brown hair. Meanwhile, her name tag spelled out "Janine Waters." She didn't seem to like the gas mask she and everyone else was wearing. She was constantly adjusting it and looked like she really wished she could just take it off.

"Yeah, no kidding," I replied, kind of wishing I could have been there to see the place explode, since it must have been awesome. "Think there's anything of value buried under all that? I'm still wondering how the devil they managed to get these giant canisters in here."

The real question was... where were they now? Where was the lab where they were making this stuff?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Janine Price

Nimbasa City, Unova

Stupid gas mask. The strap was going to leave a rash on my face and trying to loosen it without taking it off was like trying to melt a brick of ice with my butt. Plus it made my face look like an anteater's.

The warehouse was a real wreck. Kind of like some kind of giant creature just chewed it up and then barfed it all back out again after realizing it didn't taste very good. Plus it make me wonder... was being at ground zero like this really a good idea? I mean heck, this was the beating heart of the RMG outbreak. The stuff people were running away from. The stuff that was now clouding all over Unova and making new Pokémon out of people! I guess the difference between them and us was... we were getting rich for it?

"What do you make of it?" This guy Alex asked me. He had a nice voice. I sure would have liked to see it without the gas mask, but hey, what can ya do?

Problem was, I knew these guys. Well, not literally. Neo Genesis... if they did this to Unova, man, they could do it everywhere. If I really was going to get turned into something... Pokémonish, I sure hoped it would be something cute. Meanwhile, I had unwrapped a really delicious and chocolate-covered Snickers bar, and then I freaking realized I couldn't eat it because of the stupid gas mask. And it was still bothering me. Plus now my face felt hot. Really, was I going to have to wear this thing the entire time we were here?

I find a big piece of a blown up canister, one where the identification label was actually mostly intact. But, it didn't look too helpful.

"No serial code, no address, no nothing on these container labels," I told him, shrugging. "Still, these Neo Genesis psychos have to be around here somewhere. I imagine they've turned themselves into mutated Pokémon themselves just to avoid getting infected by their own gas."

"Still, how do you expect to find them among the other transformed civilians?" Alex asked, wondering about that.

"Ha, easy," I winked, even though I'm pretty sure he never saw it. "They'll either be humans somehow immune to the gas, or they'll actually look good and be made up of good combinations of tough and cool Pokémon. The screaming, panicked civilians will be made up of weird and ugly ones. As for the made-up Pokémon, well, they'll be the ones your Pokédex will stumble all over itself if it doesn't crap its pants first."

Which led me to my next suggestion.

"Alright people, something's up," I told the rest of the group, still not really sure what to do with the Snickers bar now that I unwrapped it and really didn't want melted chocolate messing up my backpack, all the while not just wanting to waste it. "Since these canisters aren't telling us squat about Neo Genesis, we need to find one of their... eh, fake Pokémon. Maybe we could figure out where it came from so it might lead us back to one of their labs?"

I figured it was worth a shot, even though I didn't speak Pokémon. But, one of our own Pokémon could speak Pokémon to one of them. Hopefully. Or at least I could feed them this Snickers bar.

So I get off the plane, right, and there's bloody Pokemon everywhere! normal ones, fake ones, human ones...BULLOCKS! If I were one of those ****s who got infected, I'd get someone to invent a cure with LOADS OF MONEEEY!

So me and the those other buggers who are part of the team go over to the warehouse where them Neo Genesis whack-jobs unleashed their Pokemon gas thing on Unova. You know what they should make? A gas that makes MONEY! That'll be worth every penny...BAAAAAA!

The whole warehouse is a bloody mess, with shrapnel everywhere. It looks like...like an explosion happened! Yeah! Well, problem is it seemed that Neo Genesis didn't leave us anything to track them with, so we don't got nothing to go after them!

I take a closer look myself, cause I'm sure those daft dimwits wouldn't be able to do it themselves, when I find a piece of a canister, with a label on it.

"OI! I know this label! It's from London Shipping Co.! I'm the CEO of it!" That didn't explain the gas, but the fact that these canisters were made by my company made sense. Not only did it specialize in shipping but also products designed specifically for shipping. We even custom order. Makes sense that they'd need to order special canisters to store their infection gas.

"I have an idea lads. If these canisters are from my company, that means they needed to be shipped in, and sent to Neo Genesis! All we gotta do is find out where they came in from, then find out where they were sent from there. Knowing Unova, they probably came in from either Castelia or Driftveil. All we's gots to do is find out which one."


OoC: If you noticed bad spelling and stuff like that, it's intentional. :p

Nimbasa City, Unova

Oh no...That was Lila's first thought as she got off of the plane. Everyone else was at least a good few years older than her. She was definetely going to be ignored, glared at like she was a toddler, or something like that. Lila quickly glared at each and every one of them, just to make sure they knew who was the toddler here. "So..." Lila said, clearing her throat, "Why am I the youngest one here?" She looked around, desperate to spot someone who was even three years older than her. No luck. Glaring at everyone, she turned away from the group. She didn't get along with people who were older than her, anyways.

"OI! I know this label! It's from London Shipping Co.! I'm the CEO of it!" A dude exclaimed. Yeah, like that even mattered. What the heck was he talking about, anyways? A thousand assorted questions zoomed around in her head, and they refused to be sorted. Well, that almost gave her a decent headache.

"What the heck," Lila couldn't help but yell, "Are you doing?! What are we even supposed to do?!" She glared around randomly, then turned her gaze back to him. Shifting uncomfortably on the debris, she felt like she was sinking, even though she wasn't. The ground, in fact, was hard, but it felt mushy. She looked down and quickly regretted it. It was the blood...YUCK. Mega yuck. Lila turned her gaze from the horrid sight and looked towards the dude.

"Well?" She asked, her hand now resting on the hilt of her sword, "Aren't you going to go to that place you've been blabbering about? Castelia or whatnot?" Lila grinned smugly at him, looking very, very annoying. Oh boy, she thought, I think I just overreacted. Oops.

((She's way more annoying than I intended her to be. Oh well, I'll just wish the rest of the characters luck with her than >=3.))

Nimbasa City

Nimbasa was just...****ing crazy. I could've sworn that it was so much different from the last time I was right here....and definitely not in a good way. Everything was a huge-*** mess, and there were an assload of Pokemon. Normal Pokemon, mixed Pokemon...even abominations, all around. Suddenly, I was thankful for my gas mask. Suffocating it may be, but at least it kept me away from that kind of trouble which frankly, I did not want to run into.

"So...why am I the youngest one here?" A younger voice asked. Too young, perhaps. I looked over my shoulder and saw a girl, barely a teenager, with strange, knee-length black hair. Damn, a little girl...

"Because...you are?" I replied almost sarcastically, arching my left brow as I did. What a stupid question that was. I had the feeling that this one was going to get on my nerves fast. I walked among the group, trying to ignore her. Children...

We reached a warehouse, which was just as messed up as the rest of Nimbasa. From the looks of it, the mission seemed to become more complicated than I thought. Debris surely isn't the best clue to find Neo Genesis' whereabouts, amirite?

"Wow... Ha ha, just... wow, they really popped this place good." Another member said, this time, an adult female with brown hair, green eyes...and a Buneary pin on her uniform. The Snickers bar she was holding was not helping either. As she voiced out her suggestion, I knew that she had a point, but I was finding it so hard to take her seriously, with those telltale signs of hers and all. Another guy, my age this time, claimed to own the company that produced the busted canisters scattered around here. Yeah, right. He was my freakin' age! Then, the annoying kid popped up again, blabbing about Castelia. I closed my eyes as I groaned inwardly. I guess the Buneary girl wasn't as potentially crazy as this girl and the possible pathological liar. Besides, I had the perfect Pokemon for the job.

"Calm down, Leeroy. One thing at a time!" I growled at the black-haired girl as I stepped forward, taking out one of the Dusk Balls from my belt. I pressed the button and released the Pokemon it held.

"Vile!" Lilith, my miniature Weavile and my first Pokemon, snarled as she brandished her claws. Lil was smaller than the average Weavile, being four inches shorter than the norm. She was very fast however, much swifter than the usual Weavile, and made a very good scouting Pokemon despite not being a flyer.

"I think Lil could give it a shot, if that's you're plan." I suggested, motioning to my Pokemon.


Note: "Leeroy" came from the "Leeroy Jenkins" YT video, it means someone who doesn't stick to the plan. XD

OOC: AA, feel free to have Janine reject Lilith and say that she's too "dark, scary and obvious"...if you'd like that is. XD

Harold claimed he knew the labels came from London Shipping Company, and that he was actually the CEO of it. I found that a little far-fetched. Not to mention, if he was shipping canisters like that, wouldn't he think something was up? I was really beginning to wonder where this guy's loyalties were.

Hmm, Neo Genesis having an inside man? Now that would be crazy. Wouldn't put it past them, but eh... Harold could still be telling the truth. Or, he could be leading us into a trap. I wasn't so sure with Castelia City or Driftveil City at this point. He did seem to draw up that conclusion pretty quickly. I figured... just to be safe, I might want to keep some distance between me and him.

"I dunno, man, give it a shot," I shrugged, not trying to reveal my thoughts. "But I kinda like Janine's idea better. These weird new Pokémon, they came from somewhere. We might be able to get our Pokémon to ask them where they came from. But hey, maybe take a few people with you to Castelia or Driftveil, and see what you find."

That was really my main idea. Meanwhile, Lila... she got all irate on the guy. Eh, whatever. I figured if I didn't get near her, things would be fine. But yeah, after I saw her with that smug grin and that annoying look, she really needed anger management training.

I decided to head out and look for one of those "new" Pokémon that Neo Genesis let out to probably kill the local ecosystem. Whichever ones gave my PokéDex a blue screen of death when I tried to scan them.

As for Theresa, she decided to give the plan a go. She had a better idea in mind than to keep looking at the wreck of this place.

"I think Lil could give it a shot," Theresa told us, referring to the Weavile she just released, "if that's your plan."

"Should work," I told her, knowing we just needed Lil to communicate with any unnatural Pokémon we found and hopefully find out where they came from.

In the meantime, Harold could pursue the labels. We did have the radios, so if he really did find something down there, he could let us know. But truthfully, considering how much the government had been funding Neo Genesis for all these years, I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't holed up in only once place...

I swear, these people were getting on my nerves. One guy claimed the canisters were shipped from his shipping company, and that his company would have even known about the gas. Uh, hello? I couldn't have been the only one to think there was something really fishy about that. I mean, either the guy was a nut and/or a liar, or a really bad double agent.

Then there was Lila. Holy frick in a hand-basket. I mean, she was standing there, wailing her head off, while standing in a whole puddle of blood and guts. Then she had this annoying grin as she was staring at the Harold guy. I swore, who the heck were these people that they packed in with us?

And then Theresa. Ugh, didn't like her either. And she thought coaxing these new, unnatural Pokémon to help us using a Weavile was a good idea. Great idea, I was so sure that a new Pokémon with no idea what it was doing here would feel comfortable with a dark-type Pokémon with sharp claws, evil red eyes, and pointy teeth.

"You people are freakin' crazy," I muttered to myself under my breath.

From what I noticed, these wild Pokémon didn't really hand out too much in the city. They were obviously in the outskirts, away from all the people. Probably in the grass. I figured Theresa would be an idiot and try her "interrogate them to death" tactic with her Weavile, while I would use a more gentle, coaxing method with Jubilee, my adorable Lopunny. Seriously, who would a newly created Pokémon feel more comfortable with? A nasty, evil, dark Weavile, or a gentle, compassionate Lopunny?

"Theresa, don't be an idiot!" I laughed at her. "You've got to coax these wild Pokémon, not scare them half to death with a dark little demon like a Weavile."

But really, if she wanted to just try and fail, by all means, I could use a really good laugh right about now. I figured I'd show her by getting some kind of lead first. That doofus Harold could go fly a kite and take Lila with him. As for me, I had my own method of...

And suddenly I felt really weird. Suddenly a really warm, tingling feeling crawling around my legs and all around my body. I just thought the freaking uniform was getting a little bit uncomfortable and itchy but then suddenly, I felt something trying to grow out of my back. No way, that wasn't what I thought it was, was it!?

Oh my god, I was right. What the hell, I had been wearing this awful gas mask the entire time and this happens anyway!? I completely freaked out when I suddenly saw the back of my hands turn blue, and then freaking fins grew out of my arms. I quickly ripped off the gas mask so I could actually scream right.

"AAAGGGGHHH, what the frick is happening to me!?" I screamed, falling to my knes.

That stupid, stupid, useless gas mask was no good from the start! Next thing I know, a freaking horn grows out of my forehead and a massive, gray shell with spiky knobs all over it grows out of my back and rips open the back of my uniform. Then, two more fins emerge from my legs and I grow a freaking stubby little tail out of my butt that rips right through my clothing to go along with the and I get two curled ear-like things on the top of my head.

This freaking, freaking gas turned me into a freaking Lapras. I was so pissed. Were all these gas masks useless, or was it just me that ended up with the crappy, defective one, because my awful, awful luck was just THAT bad? I frantically rummaged through my bag and grabbed the mirror I had, opened it, and just looked at my face, my blue... freaking, Lapras face. I touched it with my other hand, totally in disbelief.

I swore, this was the epitome of SUCK.

Right, so this little girl goes and looks confused at me. Most people don't think I got loads of money when they see me, so I wop out my wad and wave it in their face for proof!

"Well?" She asked, her hand now resting on the hilt of her sword, "Aren't you going to go to that place you've been blabbering about? Castelia or whatnot?" She had a big smug look on her face, that little...

"SHUT YO MOUF!" I yelled at her. "I'll go where I want, when I want!"

"I dunno, man, give it a shot, but I kinda like Janine's idea better. These weird new Pokémon, they came from somewhere. We might be able to get our Pokémon to ask them where they came from. But hey, maybe take a few people with you to Castelia or Driftveil, and see what you find." At least this guy was much more resonable.

"Right. Hey, here's a tenner." I wopped out my wad and pulled a 10 note and threw it over to him.

Suddenly, I hear someone shout behind me. "AAAGGGGHHH, what the frick is happening to me!?"

I turn around to tell the lass to SHUT HER MOUTH, when I realize the girl is turing into a bloody Lapras before me very eyes!

"Aw bullocks. Guess I don't need this gas mask." I said, ripping the mask off and throwing it over my shoulder.

Right, so we got that little girl with the sword, we got the creepy goth lady, and we got a Lapras. I ain't going to get lucky with any lass here, nor would I want to...Aw well, I still got LOADS A MONEEEEEY!

Getting out of the helicopter, Yuki could only raise an eyebrow at what she was seeing. Nimbasa was just so…empty. It was obvious that people had left the area in a hurry, as was evident from the misplaced items that they had left behind. Trashcans lay on their sides, spilling their contents onto the empty street, allowing the starving creatures which usually resided in the alleys to gorge themselves on the still edible food. Besides the pokemon wondering aimlessly around, both the normal and anomalies alike, the place was a total ghost town. From the corner of her vision, Yuki saw a tumbleweed rolling away on the ground nearby.

This is strange. She thought, frowning beneath the gasmask. Then she shrugged. Everyone in this ragtag group would find out soon enough.

Eventually, the group reached an abandoned warehouse, various members taking that moment to speak up. There were some empty canisters on the ground, but they didn’t look like they’d be much help. As various people argued what to do next, Yuki couldn’t help but roll her eyes. Yep. Defiantly not professionals.

In the ensuing babble, only one person seemed like they were making any sense, a blond haired woman named Theresa who looked like she was about to strangle a black haired girl for talking too much.

"Calm down, Leeroy. One thing at a time!" She growled out, grabbing a pokeball from her belt to release the pokemon from within, a miniature looking Weavile.

“I think Lil could give it a shot” Theresa said, a smirk on her face, “if that's your plan…”

Alex, the guy who seemed to be in charge, assented at the suggestion. It seemed he liked the idea from what he had been mumbling just seconds before. They needed to spread out and figure out what the hell was going on.

Rafe could help with this. Yuki inwardly agreed. From her belt she grabbed his pokeball, which felt so familiar underneath her callused fingers.

“Lux!” The Luxray growled, piercing golden eyes looking around curiously before settling on his trainer. Rafe was a bit bigger than the average Luxray, but just as lithe as and perhaps even stronger than the others.

Yuki was tempted just to use sign language to communicate with him since other people were around, but decided against it. Before she could do anything else however, the brown haired woman suddenly began screaming.

“AAAGGGGHHH, what the frick is happening to me!?" The woman, Janine, yelled. Her skin began to turn blue as the sound of fabric ripping traveled through the air; flippers started growing out of her arms, and a gray shell burst from her back. Within moments, the process was completed.

Yuki blinked. What the hell just happened?

Janine had turned into a freaking Lapras!

It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that this wasn’t good. At all.

Subconsciously, she hand signed, We’re all screwed.

On the screen before Donald, a parcel of sickly pigs stood (sat?) in defiance to their unholy crimes of egg theft. They snickered, trusting in their makeshift concrete/wood/glass fortress to protect them. Donald snickered as well, knowing that very false confidence would be their downfall. For he saw the angles, the domino-esqe collapses that, brought about by his birds would lead them all to their untimely demise. He flicked the touch screen over the right, thus observing his ammunition. A couple of the little, Asteroids-splitting-up birds chirped, plainly enthused to avenge their brethren.

Of course, Donald'd only need one.

He began to stretch the slingshot's sling, a dotted line showing the path-to-be of the birdy. His finger slid ever so slightly to find that magic 225 Degree angle he was looking for. He found it. All it would take after releasing his finger would be a matter of timed tapping, to properly deploy his avains. Trivial, really. Upon releasing his finger, he prepped his finger for the tapping, and-

"AAAGGGGHHH, what the frick is happening to me!?"

That was unexpected. The phone jumped from his startled fingers, and the birdy failed to impact its target properly without Donald's detonation.

"...Great." Donald mumbled rather disdainfully. No three stars for him. He bent to pick his phone back up, in the process seeing exactly why she chose to scream.

"Fantastic..." The gas masks were defective, somehow. And maybe getting psychic powers didn't seem quite so painless. Nonetheless, action had be taken.

"'TTENTION, ALL YOCTOGRAMS!" Donald shouted to grab everybody's attention. "I'm going to ride the Ferris Wheel, and see if I can't spot any Neo Whatevers from up there before we all end up like Carracosta Gal there! Now if you'll excuse me..." He said, before starting to exit the crowd.

"...I'll be on my way!"

And with that, he departed, taking a bag of skittles out on the way.

If he could learn to eat corned cob with braces on, he could figure out how to eat skittles with a gas mask.

I stepped off the helicopter, drawing my Desert Eagle smoothly. The government claimed that everyone had fled the city, but considering they had allowed this to happen, I didn’t have much hope for them. And I didn’t trust governments after the Delta incident. I swept my eyes left and right, ignoring my teammates for the duration of several moments while I confirmed for my own sake that no threats existed, before holstering the pistol. I turned back to the group.

A trio of people was standing around a Weavile, one of them holding a Dusk Ball, one with a Snickers bar, and the third really didn’t strike me as all that special. A girl who I could tell I wanted nothing to do with was standing a little ways away. Another guy was standing about, and had mumbled something about being CEO of some company. I ignored him. I took a quick look the others.

A scream shook me from my musings. One of my….teammates….if I could manage to stomach calling them that, had fallen to the ground screaming. She slowly began to transform into a Lapras. I scowled.

“Damn government.” I mumbled, tossing my gas mask aside. “Couldn’t manage to do something right if the instructions hit them in my face.” Shaking my head, I flicked my wrist, releasing Vesica from his Pokéball. I hadn’t heard all of what the trio had said, but I knew they were suggesting talking with some of the mutant Pokémon. I approached the group.

“I will admit to not hearing all of what was said, but I understand you want find and talk to some of the released Pokémon, or whatnot. If you like, Vesica can translate for you.” I offered. Normally I would have poked some fun at the Gallade by calling him Trout, but I didn’t feel like explaining.

Before anyone could answer, another guy came up, and yelled something about going up the Ferris Wheel. Assuming course it worked.

Alright, after doing the rolls for the next batch of posts, believe it or not, TWO MORE PEOPLE GOT INFECTED. So yeah, we're on the fourth infection and there haven't even been ten posts into this crazy thing (I really didn't expect to see this happen XD). I see random.org feels like being a cold, heartless maniac about this. XD

With this in mind, since we only just started...

We are going to "refresh" and restart the RP, with no one infected, and set the infection percentage down to 5%. And yes, you can recycle and reuse your beginning posts, as long as they fit in with everything. Sorry if this seems annoying, but after thinking it over, it really seems to be the only fair way of doing things. Wouldn't be too fair if we only dropped it now after all these rapid infections. Not to mention poor Yuki got three pretty lousy Pokemon chosen for her (Wobbuffet, Pipup, and NidoranM). XD

I hope everyone's okay with this, because I feel that if things continued the way they were going before, the whole crew would become Chimeras of twenty different Pokémon. XD

Couldn't go wrong with fifty million bucks and the chance to do something kickass that most people never even got the chance to do. They took us over in several helicopters to Nimbasa City, hoping to find some kind of evidence regarding Neo Genesis and where they were hiding. When ours landed and my can of Red Bull was knocked over, I headed out and scoped out the area. Without a doubt, it was pretty clear people left this place in a panic, like the time the toilet exploded in the men's room. Picnic tables were knocked over, trash was all over the ground, and I could have sworn I saw someone's underpants over the in the grass, but I sure wasn't going to head over there to take a closer look...

The rest of Nimbasa City looked like some kind of zombie apocalypse happened, just without the zombies. What was around, however, were new Pokémon. Some of them new as in "fresh off the grill from mad scientists in Neo Genesis" while others were "some former humans so transformed that they couldn't be distinguished from other "new Pokémon.'" Kind of made me wonder if they'd still be saying their names. That was pretty helpful when it came to trying to remember what they were called again!

Judging from the brief instructions, the warehouse where the RMG canisters were set off was around Shady Hill Drive. If this map they printed out for me was right, well, this place had been abandoned for a while now. There were no signs of life around here, although we had been warned that Unova was now home to hundreds of new, weird Pokémon that Neo Genesis decided to play around with.

I arrived at the warehouse a few minutes later after using the map in combination with the GPS on my phone. Man, this place was blown up sky high. Even took out a few of the surrounding buildings as well. My big question was how the heck did they get these gigantic canisters in this place to begin with? Wouldn't have someone noticed something?

Regardless, the place was a mess. Piles of twisted metal, broken wood, bits and panels of the roof were everywhere, and papers were scattered all of the place. How the heck were we supposed to locate Neo Genesis's hideout with only this?

"Wow..." One of the other Team Elite members said in admiration. "Ha ha, just... wow, they really popped this place good."

I turned around and saw she was a pretty attractive female with long, brown hair. Meanwhile, her name tag spelled out "Janine Waters." She didn't seem to like the gas mask she and everyone else was wearing. She was constantly adjusting it and looked like she really wished she could just take it off.

"Yeah, no kidding," I replied, kind of wishing I could have been there to see the place explode, since it must have been awesome. "Think there's anything of value buried under all that? I'm still wondering how the devil they managed to get these giant canisters in here."

The real question was... where were they now? Where was the lab where they were making this stuff?

Stupid gas mask. The strap was going to leave a rash on my face and trying to loosen it without taking it off was like trying to melt a brick of ice with my butt. Plus it made my face look like an anteater's.

The warehouse was a real wreck. Kind of like some kind of giant creature just chewed it up and then barfed it all back out again after realizing it didn't taste very good. Plus it make me wonder... was being at ground zero like this really a good idea? I mean heck, this was the beating heart of the RMG outbreak. The stuff people were running away from. The stuff that was now clouding all over Unova and making new Pokémon out of people! I guess the difference between them and us was... we were getting rich for it?

"What do you make of it?" This guy Alex asked me. He had a nice voice. I sure would have liked to see it without the gas mask, but hey, what can ya do?

Problem was, I knew these guys. Well, not literally. Neo Genesis... if they did this to Unova, man, they could do it everywhere. If I really was going to get turned into something... Pokémonish, I sure hoped it would be something cute. Meanwhile, I had unwrapped a really delicious and chocolate-covered Snickers bar, and then I freaking realized I couldn't eat it because of the stupid gas mask. And it was still bothering me. Plus now my face felt hot. Really, was I going to have to wear this thing the entire time we were here?

I find a big piece of a blown up canister, one where the identification label was actually mostly intact. But, it didn't look too helpful.

"No serial code, no address, no nothing on these container labels," I told him, shrugging. "Still, these Neo Genesis psychos have to be around here somewhere. I imagine they've turned themselves into mutated Pokémon themselves just to avoid getting infected by their own gas."

"Still, how do you expect to find them among the other transformed civilians?" Alex asked, wondering about that.

"Ha, easy," I winked, even though I'm pretty sure he never saw it. "They'll either be humans somehow immune to the gas, or they'll actually look good and be made up of good combinations of tough and cool Pokémon. The screaming, panicked civilians will be made up of weird and ugly ones. As for the made-up Pokémon, well, they'll be the ones your Pokédex will stumble all over itself if it doesn't crap its pants first."

Which led me to my next suggestion.

"Alright people, something's up," I told the rest of the group, still not really sure what to do with the Snickers bar now that I unwrapped it and really didn't want melted chocolate messing up my backpack, all the while not just wanting to waste it. "Since these canisters aren't telling us squat about Neo Genesis, we need to find one of their... eh, fake Pokémon. Maybe we could figure out where it came from so it might lead us back to one of their labs?"

I figured it was worth a shot, even though I didn't speak Pokémon. But, one of our own Pokémon could speak Pokémon to one of them. Hopefully. Or at least I could feed them this Snickers bar.

So I get off the plane, right, and there's bloody Pokemon everywhere! normal ones, fake ones, human ones...BULLOCKS! If I were one of those ****s who got infected, I'd get someone to invent a cure with LOADS OF MONEEEY!

So me and the those other buggers who are part of the team go over to the warehouse where them Neo Genesis whack-jobs unleashed their Pokemon gas thing on Unova. You know what they should make? A gas that makes MONEY! That'll be worth every penny...BAAAAAA!

The whole warehouse is a bloody mess, with shrapnel everywhere. It looks like...like an explosion happened! Yeah! Well, problem is it seemed that Neo Genesis didn't leave us anything to track them with, so we don't got nothing to go after them!

I take a closer look myself, cause I'm sure those daft dimwits wouldn't be able to do it themselves, when I find a piece of a canister, with a label on it.

"OI! I know this label! It's from London Shipping Co.! I'm the CEO of it!" That didn't explain the gas, but the fact that these canisters were made by my company made sense. Not only did it specialize in shipping but also products designed specifically for shipping. We even custom order. Makes sense that they'd need to order special canisters to store their infection gas.

"I have an idea lads. If these canisters are from my company, that means they needed to be shipped in, and sent to Neo Genesis! All we gotta do is find out where they came in from, then find out where they were sent from there. Knowing Unova, they probably came in from either Castelia or Driftveil. All we's gots to do is find out which one."

I was crudely waken from my nap by an announcement of arrival, and before I could even gather my thoughts and recall exactly where I was supposed to be arriving, someone had already pushed me out of the helicopter in their hurry to run around a plague infested city. Ugh, how rude. Youths these days. I made a mental note to scold them later on if I ever got the chance or the energy to do so as I stood up from the ground and dusted off my new gear. I picked up my beloved fedora and was just about to set it back on its place atop my head when I realized that my gasmask was… pretty much in the way. Gasmask and a fedora would be a ridiculous combination.

Oh well.

Placing the hat on my head anyway, I took a look around. The place was, in a word, a mess. And I knew all about mess. I lived inside an apartment that was defined by the word. Well, didn’t matter, wasn’t like I came here to gape at the décor anyway, I had things to do.

I mean, it was what? Seven hours from my last cup of tea? Now that could be considered a crime much worse than whatever had been committed here. I had just managed to fish out a teacup from my belongings when I realized that… I couldn’t exactly start a fire in the middle of the city to heat any water, so either I had to find someone with a fire-type or patiently wait a little longer. The first option sounded a lot better. Though then there’d be the issue of how to drink with this damn mask on… Life was so troublesome sometimes. Fine, I’d hold on a little longer.

I dragged along with the others, and it wasn’t long before ideas on what to do next started to pop up. Someone suggested we’d find ourselves one of those infected Pokémon, while someone declaring themselves as a CEO claimed the canisters here were shipped in from his company and suggested we’d switch cities and find out where the canisters were shipped to in order to find Neo Genesis. Eh. It was clear he wasn’t all that good in this whole investigating business. But then, rich people rarely were. I felt like I needed to contribute. Couldn’t miss a chance to actually talk to someone, that helicopter ride had driven me up the wall.

“I’m afraid to say I doubt it’ll be quite that easy,” I spoke up to the CEO as I walked closer, my teacup still in hand. Well, at least it was a very fine teacup. “First of all, with all the people gone, how were you planning to find out where the canisters had been shipped to? I doubt there are any documents or receipts left; they most likely got rid of those ages ago. Not only that, but even if you did find an address, it’s doubtful it leads to their actual location. Getting those things delivered straight to their secret HQ would be like a criminal in hiding ordering a pizza with their actual name to their front door – something I actually did when younger, got me in some trouble with my pals.”

A look of nostalgia washed over me, but I quickly snapped out of it.

“Ah, my apologies, I’m digressing.” I smiled a bit and shrugged. “Regardless, they’ve probably switched locations and base by now anyway. So I’m going to go with the other option too.”

I nodded towards the lady with brown hair. “I’m used to hunting down people and Pokémon alike, so I could give catching one of those things a shot. Sonatina can trap the mark with her Mean Look too, so it shouldn’t be a problem.”

Abandoned buildings, trash, trash, and…

Hands on my hips, I courteously sacrificed a minute of my time to glance through all my new, shiny teammates I had been sent out here in the boondocks with. Everyone was wearing that same hideous gasmask, and some of them looked really unfit for a job like this. I swore I spied a kid in there. More trash, in other words. Not worth my time.

And yet, I knew I would need to be burdened with their presence sooner or later. I was the most capable – and certainly the most beautiful – medic in this pitiful bunch, after all. Well, the only one, really. Now if only my features hadn’t been hidden behind this ludicrous mask. My face felt hot, the thing itched and by gods, it stank. And messed up my lipstick too. Ugh. Well, at least my nails were still beautiful.

Well, whatever, it was time to get cracking.

While most of the team had headed off to investigate some boring old canisters, I decided to go snatch myself one of those transformed darlings for my research instead. Poor things, life must’ve been hard for them. Well, luckily for them, I was going to be gentle. I was going to talk to them soothingly the whole time I sliced them up and investigated their brains and bloodcells. Ahh~ just the thought of one of those poor things sprawled in front of me, with their guts out in the open made me giggle a little. And I never giggled. Not my style. Now if getting to cut up those freaks made me this excited, how could I contain myself when one of those humans got hurt and needed my care?

Well, that’d be then, now was now. I needed one of those little dears for my research, and I needed it yesterday.

Brushing a few strands of the most beautiful hair in the world from my face, I snapped my fingers. Immediately the towering darling behind me turned his undivided attention to me. He was my pet and my subordinate, and he was the one I experimented on when I didn’t have any other darlings available. He stood a head taller than me, with well-trained muscles and a nice – albeit fake, did I look like the type to let my pet run around outside just like that? – tan. Mr. Nurse, I called him, having ordered him to throw away whatever human name he had because really, he would not be treated like a human ever again anyway. That, and having a pet named Robert would be just silly.

“We’re moving out, dear,” I answered to his questioning stare. “Pick up my things and don’t break anything. You do remember what happens when you break something, don’t you? You get ouchies. You don’t like ouchies, now do you?”

“No, m’am,” he sighed and hoisted my belongings over his shoulder. Obedient as always.

Just then I overheard the others talking about also catching one of the Pokémon for themselves in order to get it to lead them back to their lab or something. Hm. Now this was relevant to my interests.

“Oh, you’re after those fake Pokémon too, dears?” I called out to the others with a delightful smile – that nobody could probably see. I hated this mask. “Well I’ll tell you what, me and Mr. Nurse here will catch enough for you to interrogate and me to mutil – ah, study. Anyone fancy joining me?”

I winked. It didn’t show either. I wanted to rip this cursed mask off. “I promise I won’t bite all that much. I'm more a scratching person anyway ♥”

On the screen before Donald, a parcel of sickly pigs stood (sat?) in defiance to their unholy crimes of egg theft. They snickered, trusting in their makeshift concrete/wood/glass fortress to protect them. Donald snickered as well, knowing that very false confidence would be their downfall. For he saw the angles, the domino-esqe collapses that, brought about by his birds would lead them all to their untimely demise. He flicked the touch screen over the right, thus observing his ammunition. A couple of the little, Asteroids-splitting-up birds chirped, plainly enthused to avenge their brethren.

Of course, Donald'd only need one.

He began to stretch the slingshot's sling, a dotted line showing the path-to-be of the birdy. His finger slid ever so slightly to find that magic 225 Degree angle he was looking for. He found it. All it would take after releasing his finger would be a matter of timed tapping, to properly deploy his avains. Trivial, really. Upon releasing his finger, he prepped his finger for the tapping, and-

"SCRAAATTCCHCHCHCHHCHCCOUBOUBSBUOBSBOUSB..."

That was unexpected. The phone jumped from his startled fingers, and the birdy failed to impact its target properly without Donald's detonation.

"...Great." Donald mumbled rather disdainfully. No three stars for him. He bent to pick his phone back up, in the process seeing exactly what screamed.

"Eww..." Some misshapen, morphed beyond reason bird Pokemon's screech had caused his virtual brethren to fail. It looked as though it had once been a Sigilyph, but the gas had added Scyther, Wailmer and Ledyba parts here and there... It served as a reminder he didn't want to stick around here too much. For him and his Pokemon. Plastic surgery could do so much, and any rate, and he still had a visit to Driftveil... Well, time for a call to action.

"'TTENTION, ALL YOCTOGRAMS!" Donald shouted to grab everybody's attention. "I'm going to ride the Ferris Wheel, and see if I can't spot any Neo Whatevers from up there before we all end up like 'Once was a Sigilyph' up there!" He pointed out the unfortunate avianoid. "Now if you'll excuse me..." He said, before starting to exit the crowd.

"...I'll be on my way!"

And with that, he departed, taking a bag of skittles out on the way.

If he could learn to eat corned cob with braces on, he could figure out how to eat skittles with a gas mask.

OOC: I'm surprised the thingy was about to mutate so many... Well, whatever. I couldn't use Janine's attention-grabbingness, so I substituted my own.

Nimbasa was just...****ing crazy. I could've sworn that it was so much different from the last time I was right here....and definitely not in a good way. Everything was a huge-*** mess, and there were an assload of Pokemon. Normal Pokemon, mixed Pokemon...even abominations, all around. Suddenly, I was thankful for my gas mask. Suffocating it may be, but at least it kept me away from that kind of trouble which frankly, I did not want to run into.

There were so many different kinds of peeps in the team, seemingly normal ones, and probably some crazy ones. Some of them even children. Damn...children? Definitely bound to be annoying and probably all Leeroys. I felt the back of my belt for all my Dusk Balls. Lilith, Nyx, Selene, Asena, Azrael and Abaddon, all of them still there. The last thing I wanted was one of them missing, especially at a time like this.

We reached a warehouse, which was just as messed up as the rest of Nimbasa. From the looks of it, the mission seemed to become more complicated than I thought. Debris surely isn't the best clue to find Neo Genesis' whereabouts, amirite?

"Wow... Ha ha, just... wow, they really popped this place good." Another member said, this time, an adult female with brown hair, green eyes...and a Buneary pin on her uniform. The Snickers bar she was holding was not helping either. As she voiced out her suggestion, I knew that she had a point, but I was finding it so hard to take her seriously, with those telltale signs of hers and all. Another guy, my age this time, claimed to own the company that produced the busted canisters scattered around here. Yeah, right. He was my freakin' age! He had to be a liar, because the only other reason would be that I'm stupid, and I'm fairly sure that I aren't stupid. I guess the Buneary girl wasn't as potentially crazy as this pathological liar. Besides, I had the perfect Pokemon for the job.

Two people, one of them seemingly the doctor...a very unusual-looking doctor, agreed to the plan, volunteering to go out and search. However, I did not want to risk it, turning into an abomination that is. I mean, the gas was probably more potent outside. Besides, I had the perfect Pokemon for the job. Taking out one of my Dusk Balls from my belt, I held it out and pushed its button.

"Vile!" Lilith, my miniature Weavile and my first Pokemon, snarled as she brandished her claws. Lil was smaller than the average Weavile, being four inches shorter than the norm at only three feet and three inches tall. She was very fast however, much swifter than the usual Weavile, and made a very good scouting Pokemon based on my experience, despite not being a flyer.

"I think Lil could give it a shot, if that's you're plan. She's my scouter and very fast. She could find anyone...anything. That way, none of us have to risk getting...you know." I suggested, motioning to my Pokemon.

Harold claimed the gas canisters were made by his company, London Shipping. I guess he didn't know his own product would be used the general Unova public. He claimed he could track down where the RMG was inserted into canisters before being shipped off here.

"I have an idea, lads," He told us. "If these canisters are from my company, that means they needed to be shipped in, and sent to Neo Genesis! All we gotta do is find out where they came in from, then find out where they were sent from there. Knowing Unova, they probably came in from either Castelia or Driftveil. All we's gots to do is find out which one."

There was only one issue with that. It would only tell us where the gas was inserted into the canisters. That didn't mean it was the actual location of the lab.

"I'm afraid to say I doubt it'll be that easy," Kristofer told him, skeptical about the whole thing. "First of all, with all the people gone, how were you planning to find out where the canisters had been shipped to? I doubt there are any documents or receipts left; they most likely got rid of those ages ago. Not only that, but even if you did find an address, it’s doubtful it leads to their actual location. Getting those things delivered straight to their secret HQ would be like a criminal in hiding ordering a pizza with their actual name to their front door – something I actually did when younger, got me in some trouble with my pals."

The dude did have a point there. I mean, if Harold was convinced going to Castelia or Driftveil was a good idea, he could check it out, but I had to reason with Kris on this one. Anyone could see that bread crumb trail a million miles away. If they had survived operating in secret for this long, I had my doubts they'd be the dumb.

His idea was to go after the fake Pokémon. Same thing with Janine's Meanwhile, Donald's idea was to use the ferris wheel. Man, just who were these crazy people?

I swear, these people were getting on my nerves. One guy claimed the canisters were shipped from his shipping company, and that his company would have even known about the gas. Uh, hello? I couldn't have been the only one to think there was something really fishy about that. I mean, either the guy was a nut and/or a liar, or a really bad double agent.

That dude Kris seemed okay. He actually liked my idea and thought that Harold guy was a real screwball.

"I'm used to hunting down people and Pokémon alike, so I could give catching one of those things a shot," He told me, making it a bit unsettling to think what he actually did with them after that. "Sontina can trap the mark with her Mean Look too, so it shouldn't be a problem."

Well, whoever that was, I supposed it couldn't hurt.

"Hey, I gotcha," I told him with a wink.

And then there Theresa. Ugh, didn't like her either. And she thought coaxing these new, unnatural Pokémon to help us using a Weavile was a good idea. Great idea, I was so sure that a new Pokémon with no idea what it was doing here would feel comfortable with a dark-type Pokémon with sharp claws, evil red eyes, and pointy teeth.

"You people are freakin' crazy," I muttered to myself under my breath.

From what I noticed, these wild Pokémon didn't really hand out too much in the city. They were obviously in the outskirts, away from all the people. Probably in the grass. I figured Theresa would be an idiot and try her "interrogate them to death" tactic with her Weavile, while I would use a more gentle, coaxing method with Jubilee, my adorable Lopunny. Seriously, who would a newly created Pokémon feel more comfortable with? A nasty, evil, dark Weavile, or a gentle, compassionate Lopunny?

"Theresa, don't be an idiot!" I laughed at her. "You've got to coax these wild Pokémon, not scare them half to death with a dark little demon like a Weavile."

But really, if she wanted to just try and fail, by all means, I could use a really good laugh right about now. I figured I'd show her by getting some kind of lead first. That doofus Harold could go fly a kite and take Theresa with him. As for me, I had my own method of...

And suddenly I felt really weird. Suddenly a really warm, tingling feeling crawling around my legs and all around my body. I just thought the freaking uniform was getting a little bit uncomfortable and itchy but then suddenly, I felt something trying to grow out of my back. No way, that wasn't what I thought it was, was it!? They told us these things would work!

Oh my god, I was right. What the hell, I had been wearing this awful gas mask the entire time and this happens anyway!? Oh come on, why did it have to be me!? My eyes went wide when I saw I had been growing feathers. From behind the uniform, I could feel them growing out of my chest.

And then, holy frick, I sprouted two massive gray wings right out of my back, through the uniform like there wasn't a single thing to it. And then, a whole fan of tail feathers right out of my butt, again, tearing right through the uniform. I was being freaking turned into a bird!

"No!" I shouted, wailing frantically. "No, no, no this can't be happening! Someone... help me!!"

And then it felt like an extra clump of hair hung down in front of my face, colored red at the tip. Frantically, I threw my bag down, unzipped one of the pockets, and pulled out the mirror. I then ripped off the gas mask, figuring the stupid, stupid thing was useless anyway. I then looked into my own reflection and saw I had become a freaking Pokémorph of a Staraptor! It made my nice, brown hair become an ugly dark gray instead, and my face was covered with white, but at least I didn't end up a freaking beak of all things. And now I had the crest of a Staraptor on my freaking head!

"These freaking gas masks are freaking useless!" I shouted, kicking the stupid gas mask at least a good fifty feet, which it deserved. "Gad, freakin' look at me! Look at what that stupid gas mask did to me! I DON'T DESERVE THIS!"

Okay, maybe I was complaining a bit too much. I mean, a Staraptor wasn't so bad, right? It could have been way worse... maybe? I mean, I turned again and saw that ugly, ugly Sigilyph... Scyther/Wailmer and I guess Ledyba thing that Donald was referring to before he jumped on the ferris wheel. Shouldn't I be happy... I didn't look like that? Maybe?

Wait, wait, wait... I had wings now. Did that mean... did that mean I could actually fly? I could flap them like they were an extra pair of arms. That would be pretty cool if... oh freaking hell, I was too humiliated to even try it out. To think I wasn't even human anymore... ugh, this was a suckfest.

"Can we... can we just get the ever-loving FRICK OUT OF HERE!?" I shouted, not really caring what plan we decided to use. "PEOPLE, WAKE UP, WE'RE AT GROUND ZERO AND IF YOU'D LOOK AT ME, YOU'D SEE IT'S OBVIOUS THESE GAS MASKS DON'T WORK, SO DON'T YOU THINK WE SHOULD GET OUT HERE!?"

Wow, we were screwed.

The first to speak up was that geezer who looked like he was bloody homeless or something.

“I’m afraid to say I doubt it’ll be quite that easy, first of all, with all the people gone, how were you planning to find out where the canisters had been shipped to? I doubt there are any documents or receipts left; they most likely got rid of those ages ago. Not only that, but even if you did find an address, it’s doubtful it leads to their actual location. Getting those things delivered straight to their secret HQ would be like a criminal in hiding ordering a pizza with their actual name to their front door – something I actually did when younger, got me in some trouble with my pals.” The guy was holding a tea cup too. This guy actually reminded me of me mum and dad really.

"Alright then. Here, take a tenner, go buy yourself an ax or something." I wopped out my wad took out a 10 note and threw it at the guy, I figured he probably needed it anyway.

“Well I’ll tell you what, me and Mr. Nurse here will catch enough for you to interrogate and me to mutil – ah, study. Anyone fancy joining me?” I looked over and this really good lookin' lass was standing off to the side with a big guy. I don't know who he is, but he better not be her boyfriend.

“I promise I won’t bite all that much. I'm more a scratching person anyway ♥”

"Oi love, you got room for one more?" I asked as I walked over to her. Now to use my special weapon...

I wopped out my wad again and waved it in the face of the guy standing with the lass. "Baaaaaa, loads a monneeeeey!"

I wasn't paying too much attention to those other wankers much, until suddenly I heard a voice behind me shouting.

"No!" She shouted, waving frantically. "No, no, no this can't be happening! Someone... help me!!" I instinctively wop out my wad, but sadly this seemed to be a situation wherem oney couldn't help. Rubbish.

Before me very eyes, the girl turns into a bloody Staraptor, wings and everything. "Aw bullocks. Guess I don't need this mask." I said as I ripped off me gas mask and threw it over my shoulder, hitting the big guy next to the good looking lass in the face. Hopefully she wouldn't get infected by this gas too, otherwise I don't think I'm going to get lucky with any lass here, nor would I want to.

I stepped off the helicopter to a scene of complete devastation. The area looked like either a bomb had went off, or two guys had come through with M60s. Either way, the results were impressive, and the military side of me wondered if I could get my hands on a way to replicate this kinda of damage. Admiring the damage done, I quickly checked the area for anything the might be hostile, but it seemed that the government had gotten something right for once.

Several of the others proposed various ideas of what to do, one guy, named Donald ran off to the Ferris Wheel, Harold claimed to be able to track down the location these containers came from. I was skeptical of how much help that would be however. Alex and Janine were talking about finding a mutant Pokémon, which seemed like a good idea. Yet another guy said that he had a Pokémon that knew Mean Look, which might prove helpful.

I pulled out an Ultra Ball and released Vesica. The Gallade was completely silent as he appeared beside me. I was going to offer to help when suddenly Janine suddenly started to squirm, and then, in a fashion that wouldn’t have seemed out of place in a horror film, two wings erupted from her back, and she took on several other features that resembled a Staraptor. I stared in disbelief. So as ever politicians had lied, saying that gas masks would keep us from being infected.

"These freaking gas masks are freaking useless!" Janine raged, kicking her gas mask away. "Gad, freakin' look at me! Look at what that stupid gas mask did to me! I DON'T DESERVE THIS!"

“Master…I do believe that you are screwed.” Vesica commented. I ignored the Gallade, instead opting to remove my own mask and throw it as far as I could.

“Bloody Government, couldn’t do something right if the instructions hit them in the face.” I mumbled. Still, if she had wings…did that mean she could fly?

"Can we... can we just get the ever-loving FRICK OUT OF HERE!?" She screamed. "PEOPLE, WAKE UP, WE'RE AT GROUND ZERO AND IF YOU'D LOOK AT ME, YOU'D SEE IT'S OBVIOUS THESE GAS MASKS DON'T WORK, SO DON'T YOU THINK WE SHOULD GET OUT HERE!?"

“If you can find and capture one of these mutants, Vesica can translate what they are saying for us, which should provide some kind of information. Since Harold seems preoccupied with other things, I would suggest the rest of us get started finding a mutant to talk to. I would think that Lostlorn Forest might be a good place to start.” I observed dryly. My first instinct was to start giving orders, but this wasn’t’ a strictly military operation, so I kept my mouth shut.

People started to pipe up one after another. First was the CEO, who didn’t seem too happy with me tearing his plan apart. Too bad, I didn’t mean to offend him, it was just that his plan… generally sucked, bigtime. He seemed really condescending, most likely mistaking me for a homeless like so many others had before him. I couldn’t fathom why, it wasn’t like my face could be at fault this time either; it was still securely hidden behind this itching gasmask. Ah well, at least I got a nice ten pokedollar bill outta him. It might’ve been given to me with ill intent but hey, money was money.

I would’ve thanked him for it too, but before I got the chance, another one of us took their turn to speak and seemed to steal his attention. It was a female doctor, apparently all ready to go Pokémon hunting as well. Something in the way she talked about it though, made me sort of pity the Pokémon she’d catch. And that was saying something, considering I wasn’t even sure exactly what pity meant. I couldn’t recall ever feeling it before. Ah well.

Then someone showed up and wanted to… ride the Ferris Wheel. See, this is why you only hired greedy professionals, not good-hearted, naďve kids; as adorable as his wish to go play around in an amusement park was, it didn’t get us anywhere. I sighed. Lastly, there was this one dark lady with a Weavile. A really… really tall lady with a Weavile. I had to surreptitiously inch next to her just to compare our heights. We seemed about equal in that respect. Woah. I hoped she didn’t think me rude for staring, she must’ve gotten that a lot as it was.

Janine seemed alright with my help, so I just nodded and started to inch away from the group as fast as possible, because from the looks – and sounds – of it, she and the Weavile lady – Theresa, she had been called – didn’t get along. And arguing women were just downright scary. I didn’t manage to tiptoe too far away though when… all hell broke loose right behind me. Janine started screaming, and not long after she seemed like a messed up combination of a human and Cadenza, my Staraptor.

Holy. Hell. So the gasmasks don’t work?

I better ask for a raise.

She screamed that we should leave, and I couldn’t help but rub my ear in annoyance. I know she was hurting and panicking and all, but did she need to be so... loud about it? I hated noise. The doctor came up to her and offered to take her away, and though I wasn’t sure whether or not that was exactly the best idea possible, I decided to steer clear from the situation, especially since a guy with a Gallade gave an idea for a better course of action.

I turned to him and nodded. He seemed calm, most likely some sort of professional as well. He sure looked the role a lot more than I did.

“I concur, Lostlorn does seem like a good place to start.” I swore I saw a Sigilyph-sort of thing floating around earlier, but it seemed gone now. I turned to the rest of the group. “Hey, ladies and gents, I suggest we move out. Let’s all head for the forest. We can set a camp, catch that Pokémon and have a cup of tea as we plan our next course of action. It doesn’t seem like we have anything more to do here anyway.”

Just when it seemed like none of the dears had the balls to join me, one delightfully naďve young man expressed his interest.

"Oi love, you got room for one more?" He asked as he walked up to me. ‘Love’? Well wasn’t he cute. Definitely easy to manipulate, this one. I liked him. He did exhibit some… very strange behavior, though. He was waving money in front of Mr. Nurse’s face, after all. Silly boy, Mr. Nurse was a pet, he didn’t care about money. All he cared about was doing as he was told and keeping his mistress happy, as he should.

“What’s… up with you?” Mr. Nurse questioned, sounding puzzled as he watched the guy shoving money in his face. “Seriously, is everyone a loony here?”

“Now, now, that’s no way to talk to our new friend,” I reprimanded my pet instantly, and I could see his face grow pale as he muttered an apology. Oh, did I love that expression. I looked my newest… acquisition through, deeming him an average man in all regards. But that was good. I liked average men. They were the ones most easy to manipulate. All they needed was a little... attention.

But before I could even talk to my new little dear, I heard a scream from the group. What, did they managed to hurt themselves already? Bad timing if ever.

I turned, expecting someone with a small boo-boo on their finger, but the scene that unfolded in front of my eyes was the most wonderful sight in the entire world instead. One of the women was on the ground, shouting as her body was forced through a mutation. A beautiful, beautiful mutation I had never expected to witness with my own two eyes this early on! Screw experimenting on those fake Pokémon freaks, this was a lot more interesting, a lot more… exciting. Ah, I was getting tingles all over my body already~

I didn’t really pay attention to anything else after that. I barely noticed my newest pet throwing away his gasmask and heard Mr. Nurse groan a second later in annoyance, and I did catch the gist of what the mutated girl talked about, however. She wanted to get out of here. Well wasn’t this perfect, I was very willing to get her out of here at once as well~ I needed peace and quiet to study her.

I waited until the woman had piped down a bit before I strolled over to her, excited like a little girl. I threw my gasmask away in the process, revealing all the beauty I had kept hidden underneath. We couldn’t yet be exactly sure the gasmasks didn’t work – Janine’s could just be malfunctioning, but hell if I cared. I wanted to see properly. And look good.

“Oh my, dear, whatever happened to your body?” I asked with concern – maybe a little too much concern, as my enthusiasm might’ve just shone through. I bend over her, not able to contain my excitement anymore. My uncontrollable, uncontrollable urge to sink a scalpel in those shiny new wings and see what's inside. “You’re right, we need to get you out of here at once before anything worse happens!”

I turn behind me and snap my fingers at Mr. Nurse and the new, loaded guy – who I made a point to name later –, signaling them to come and pick the girl up for me. I was excited to get to examine her, but not excited enough to touch her without gloves, much less carry her. Birds were unhygienic.

Mr. Nurse instantly walked over, ready to pick the girl up. I straightened and smiled.

“Don’t worry darling, if you behave, I’ll make sure to be really gentle. Now, I do need a liiiittle bit of blood and some samples, so I might need to poke you with sharp things quite a bit, but I assure you most of it will be almost completely painless~!” I assure her. Well, at least I think I sound pretty assuring. At least I’m not cackling manically in excitement like I’d like to.

Hmm... Up to now, none of my 'teammates' seemed very... useful to me. Well, maybe the rich fella would. If I don't get my fifty million, I could always trap him inside a closed room and steal his money. Hahaha... I'm so evil.

“I promise I won’t bite all that much. I'm more a scratching person anyway ♥” Some... nurse lady said. I didn't really catch the rest of her conversation. I was too busy thinking of Amy.

She was definetely a charmer. I could see from the actions of the rich guy that he was a bit... enfatuated, to say the least, with her.

And then there was screaming. I would simply laugh, but the situation wouldn't allow me.

"No!" The girl... Janine, if he heard correctly from one of their conversations, shouted, wailing frantically. "No, no, no this can't be happening! Someone... help me!!"

The rich guy took a wad of cash from his pocket. Yes. A buttload of money would definitely save Janine from turning into a Staraptor Pokémorph. Instead of saying this, I simply went up to him and grabbed the wad of cash for myself.

"These freaking gas masks are freaking useless!" Janine raged, kicking her gas mask away. "Gad, freakin' look at me! Look at what that stupid gas mask did to me! I DON'T DESERVE THIS!"

I walked up to Janine, removing my mask as I walked. "Kicking your mask and being frustrated won't solve anything. We need a plan of action."

"Can we... can we just get the ever-loving FRICK OUT OF HERE!?" She screamed. "PEOPLE, WAKE UP, WE'RE AT GROUND ZERO AND IF YOU'D LOOK AT ME, YOU'D SEE IT'S OBVIOUS THESE GAS MASKS DON'T WORK, SO DON'T YOU THINK WE SHOULD GET OUT HERE!?"

Yes. Ignore what I just said. Thanks.

I was about to speak again, when another person of our team spoke up. “If you can find and capture one of these mutants, Vesica can translate what they are saying for us, which should provide some kind of information. Since Harold seems preoccupied with other things, I would suggest the rest of us get started finding a mutant to talk to. I would think that Lostlorn Forest might be a good place to start.” he observed dryly.

I took in his appearance. Tall, mismatching eyes, army combat clothes like the rest of us... Quite an authority figure.

“Oh my, dear, whatever happened to your body?” the nurse asked with concern.

"Why, can't you see she turned into a burrito? Though I have to admit that she looks quite delicious." I deadpanned.

She probably didn't hear me though. She went on and on about how she was going to treat her, and she looked like she was going to take her out of here. I'd like to see her trying. The helicopter left a few minutes ago.

Then I heard a familiar voice saying "STOP EVIL POKÉMORPH."

Amy Matthews

I pointed my specially modified guitar rifle at the Pokémorph in front of me. "Y-YOU'RE COMING BACK WITH ME!"

"If I may ask, my sweet little Ames, what the frick are you doing here?" I heard Nathan's voice asking me. I probably imagined it.

Then I saw Nathan lowering my rifle. Oh crap.

"Um... I'm... on vacation?" Then I noticed he didn't have the mask on.

"Babe, where's your mask? What if you're infected? 'Cause, I'm not ready to be date an abomination of nature-"

"The masks don't work, babe." He said, calmly.

... What.

"... Did you just say... what I THINK you said?" I gripped my guitar in anger, ready to hit someone.

"You have proof. The Pokémorph you were pointing at is part of our team."

That did it. "WHEN I GET BACK FROM THIS MESS, I SWEAR-"

"Everyone duck." Nathan simply said, lowering himself.

"-I WILL BASH THESE GUYS' HEADS IN WITH MY GUITAR!" I swung my guitar around wildly, hoping it hit someone.

After my rage fit, Nathan looked at me, took off my mask and saw that I was dressed normally. "Where are you're camouflage clothes?"

"Whaddya mean?" I asked, confused. Looking around, I saw nearly everyone was wearing camouflage clothing but me.

Did these people really want me dead that much?

My man just sighed. "Forget it babe. Just relax." Then he spun around and faced someone else.

"I agree with your plan as well. However, I'll be surveying a different area then you. Splitting up would speed up the process, making us leave this wretched region faster. Do you agree?"

Route 16, En route to Lostlorn Forest, Unova

I couldn't believe it when saw Janine become that half human, half Staraptor Pokémorph. Her screaming was pretty loud and alarming, but I couldn't blame her, these stupid gas masks were supposed to prevent this kind of crap. Realizing mine wasn't going to do me any good anyway, I took it off, finally able to breathe better. I figured the Unova government was probably stupid to think the gas mask was invincible against any kind of gas. Obviously the filter didn't account for RMG.

Janine was right though, we needed to get out of here. Ian suggested heading to Lostlorn, and I figured anywhere away from here was probably a good idea. Still, I couldn't help but wonder about Janine. Could she really fly with those wings now?

She was still freaked out when I got to her, but I helped her to her feet. Still, when she realized we really were following her and Ian's advice, she seemed a bit more responsive.

Kristofer seemed to agree with the whole idea, thinking of setting up camp and trying to catch one of those unnatural Pokémon. I thought that was a good idea, but the tea he suggested just wasn't my thing. Never really cared much for that stuff.

In the meantime, after stepping out of Nimbasa, it was easy to see Route 16 was also a mess. Cars were parked and stopped all over the place as it seemed no one was really sure if they wanted to get away from Nimbasa with it being ground zero or use it as a route to Castelia to evacuate. One semi truck had even been laying on its side. In the meantime, I caught glimpses of some strange Pokémon in the distance, but every time we got closer, they fled. From what I could see, they didn't even like being within five hundred feet of humans.

Which made me wonder... they didn't seem to trust us, but would they trust Janine? I mean, she didn't look totally like a perfect Staraptor, but she came awfully close to it now. They could potentially think she was like one of them and she'd be able to get closer.

I figured it was worth a shot. If that didn't work, she could try flying into the air and scout around for anything. That was, of course, if she could actually fly and not freak out about it again.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Janine Price
Staraptor Pokémorph
Nimbasa City, Unova

This Dr. Valentine person was creeping me out. I saw the way she looked at me. It was freaking creepy, she acted like what happened to me was actually good.

"Oh my, dear, whatever happened to your body?" She asked me with a little too much concern. "You’re right, we need to get you out of here at once before anything worse happens!"

"Lady, please, just leave me the frick alone!" I told her, just trying to get away from her.

"Don't worry darling," She replied in a creepy tone. "if you behave, I’ll make sure to be really gentle. Now, I do need a liiiittle bit of blood and some samples, so I might need to poke you with sharp things quite a bit, but I assure you most of it will be almost completely painless~!"

"Are you not sane!?" I shouted to her, really thinking she had gone totally mad. "I'm not your freakin' lab specimen! Get the hell away from me with that knife!"

I ran like the dickens, knowing I'd be an idiot to ever try to trust that mad scientist-doctor person. And then, I didn't know what came over me as I dashed away from her. If there was any decent time to actually try flying, now was a good one. As I ran from her, I spread both of my wings, flapped them really hard again and again, and with a deep breath, leapt up, hoping I wouldn't crash land on my face.

And then holy crap, I took off the ground, first five feet, then ten feet, then twenty, thirty, and then I couldn't believe it, I was flying! Nimbasa City and the whole world below me shrank as I soared higher and higher, feeling the wind and air in my wings, tail-feathers, and around all around me. I tried turning around and it wasn't that hard either! Wow, you know what, this wasn't so bad after all! Flying was sheer awesomeness!

And there was Valentine, probably dumbfounded about the fact I could fly and she couldn't. All these crazy people, and now I had the perfect solution to bail the frick away from all of them if they ever lost their marbles again.

"Ha ha ha, this is fantastic!" I shouted as I flew above everyone else, probably making them severely jealous. "Yeah, baby, you have no idea how much fun this is!"

I spun around and flew right by the whole group before pumping my wings again and soared higher into the sky. Oh man, they were going to see that and just wish they had gotten wings like I did! Instead, they'd be stuck trotting and strutting on the ground!

Wow, I just had to take back all the complaints I made. Sure, the transformation itself was freaky, but... it was so worth it in the end!

Leonardo "Leo" Silverstone
Still human
Nimbassa City, Unova

"Wow!" Leo said as he stepped off the plane, his eyes were wide with shock. The city was a lot diffferent than he remembered it. It looked like an apocalyptic wasteland. When it used to be filled with people and flashing lights, it was now filled with...he thought they were Pokemon, but he wasn't so sure. Aside from his group, there weren't any other humans around. Leo pulled out his only Pokeball from his pocket, and relased the Pokemon inside. He kept him there so he wouldn't occupy too much space on the plane.

"Musharna!" The drowsing Pokemon yawned as he appeared from the ball in a flash of red light.

Leo patted his Pokemon's head. "Hey Shawn, it looks like we got a looot of work ahead of us."

"Yeah, no kidding!" Said a feminine voice that seemed to be eminating from his watch. "But you can do it sweetie."

Leo put his wrist up and spoke into the watch. "Thank you Tara."

As the group started talking amongst themselves, a plan was made to go into Lostlorn forest. Then, one of the girls turned into a Staraptor/human hybrid thing. Apparently, these gas masks we were given didn't work. Well, that's nice. Leo thought sarcastically. But he kept his on anyway. It might have only been hers that was defective, and it was better to be safe than sorry, even if the thing was uncomfortable, and difficult to see out of. The girl was understandably upset, and wanted to get out of here. Leo didn't get what the fuss was about. Sure, he wouldn't have wanted to become a mutant against his will, but she got lucky with the Pokemon she was turned into. Staraptors were cool, and they were quite powerful in battles, plus they had wings, and could fly. A fact she was beginning to discover when she took off after running from some nurse lady who wanted to study her. She seemed to enjoy flying from her shouts. Leo smiled, even though it wasn't visible underneath his gas mask. A little positivity goes a long way.

Then someone else got mad. "WHEN I GET BACK FROM THIS I'LL..."

"Everyone duck."

Without thinking, Leo did as the guy next to him said.

"BASH SOMEONE'S HEAD IN WITH MY GUITAR." a girl carrying a guitar shouted as she swung it around wildly. Leo breathed a sigh of relief.

"Ey! Careful where you swing that thing!" shouted Tara. "You could've damaged my man's handsome face!" Not really remembering that he was wearing a mask at the time.

Leo just shook his head and sighed. Then the guy said something about splitting up, as it would make this mission a lot faster, and asked if anyone agreed. Leo wasn't sure if the guy was speaking to him or not, but decided to give his opinion anyway.

"I guess... But, it'll be dangerous if we all go out there alone. I've seen rangers get into all sorts of trouble when they went on missions alone, things they could've avoided if they had brought a buddy."

"Musharna." Shawn added, feeling like he needed to contribute something to the conversation.

"But, maybe going into small groups would work?"

Yuki Thompson
Still Human
Nimbasa City, Unova

Getting out of the helicopter, Yuki could only raise an eyebrow at what she was seeing. Nimbasa was just so…empty. It was obvious that people had left the area in a hurry, as was evident from the misplaced items that they had left behind. Trashcans lay on their sides, spilling their contents onto the empty street, allowing the starving creatures which usually resided in the alleys to gorge themselves on the still edible food. Besides the pokemon wondering aimlessly around, both the normal and anomalies alike, the place was a total ghost town. From the corner of her vision, Yuki saw a tumbleweed rolling away on the ground nearby.

This is strange. She thought, frowning beneath the gasmask. Then she shrugged. Everyone in this ragtag group would find out soon enough.

Eventually, the group reached an abandoned warehouse, various members taking that moment to speak up. There were some empty canisters on the ground, but they didn’t look like they’d be much help. As various people argued what to do next, Yuki couldn’t help but roll her eyes. Yep. Defiantly not professionals. Some guy and a doctor finally suggested that they should all go out and catch one of the abnormalities, but it was the young woman with blond hair, Theresa, who finally acted.

Grabbing a dusk ball from her belt, she pushed the button down to release the creature inside, which turned out to be a miniature looking Weavile.

“I think Lil could give it a shot,” Theresa said, a smirk on her face, “if that's your plan. She's my scouter and very fast. She could find anyone...anything. That way, none of us have to risk getting...you know.”

Rafe could help with this. Yuki inwardly agreed, liking the suggestion. From her belt she grabbed his pokeball, which felt so familiar underneath her callused fingers.

“Lux!” The Luxray growled, piercing golden eyes looking around curiously before settling on his trainer. Rafe was a bit bigger than the average Luxray, but just as lithe as and perhaps even stronger than the others.

Yuki was tempted just to use sign language to communicate with him since other people were around, but decided against it. Before she could do anything else however, the brown haired woman suddenly began screaming.

"No!" She shrieked. "No, no, no this can't be happening! Someone... help me!!"

Yuki’s eyes went wide.

Janine. Janine was—Oh god.

The sound of fabric rent the air as two large wings erupted from the young woman’s back like out of some horror movie, her brown hair turned gray and feathers covered every visible part of her skin within seconds. When the process had finally completed, it was hard to believe that the creature had been Janine in the first place, instead being replaced by an eerily human looking Staraptor.

"These freaking gas masks are freaking useless!" She shouted, ripping the mask off her face as she tossed it aside. "Gad, freakin' look at me! Look at what that stupid gas mask did to me! I DON'T DESERVE THIS!"

Yuki simply blinked. What the hell was going on?

"Can we... can we just get the ever-loving FRICK OUT OF HERE!?" Janine screeched, seeing that nobody was moving even after her sudden transformation. "PEOPLE, WAKE UP, WE'RE AT GROUND ZERO AND IF YOU'D LOOK AT ME, YOU'D SEE IT'S OBVIOUS THESE GAS MASKS DON'T WORK, SO DON'T YOU THINK WE SHOULD GET OUT HERE!?"

That seemed to snap everybody out of their shock, causing many of them, including Yuki, to immediately rip off their now useless masks. Seemed like they were all in danger now. Chaos ensued.
It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that that wasn’t good. At all.

Subconsciously she hand signed, We’re all screwed.

Her stomach took that opportunity to growl, but luckily everyone was blabbing so loud none of them could hear it, or at least that’s what she hoped. Damn appetite. Hadn’t she eaten two big macs like an hour ago?

Rafe growled softly. “Lux.” When Yuki looked down, she saw that he had Janine’s snicker bar between his teeth. The older woman must’ve dropped it when she began growing feathers.

Smiling slightly, Yuki pat her companion on the head and took the candy from her. She nibbled on the chocolate, refusing to feel any guilt as she took in the scene around her.

Finders keepers, losers weepers.

OOC: Sorry if this is rushed. I was falling behind already. XD Angel, I hope the chocolate thing is okay with you. If it isn't I'll change it.

Atop the Nimbasa Ferris Wheel, Nimbasa Theme Park, Nimbasa City, Unova

“…BORING.”

It was a good idea, getting up there to better observe the situation… The helicopter pilot certainly didn’t want to stick around to see anything. But the sight on the ol’ Wheel was pretty much the same as up there, same ruin, same junk, same freaky, freaky Pokemon, which were good for a couple seconds of bile fascination each… But then you realized the same thing could happen to your Pokemon. Either way, Donald was becoming restless.

He glimpsed back at his compatriots, the rest of “Team Elite”. They weren't doing much besides talking, about the same as usual. Apart from one chick, who was rapidly bursting into feather, like some Altered Beast thing.

“Well, I guess the gas masks are about useless…” He duly noted as the chicken-chick ripped hers off and threw it on the GROUND. “Odd that it should happen twice in a row like that… Luck of the draw, I guess…”

“…Wait, what?”

Um, that was weird. Anyway, now was as good time to do a proper inventory-ing of his weaponry… It had been a PAIN to haul all the crap he’d brought along in that little backpack. Just dumping it’s contents on the ground easily filled the rest of the… whatever you call the things you sit in on Ferris Wheels. Carriages? …Nonetheless, the bazookas were heavier, so he’d better appraise them first. Best way to do that, to shoot ‘em!

He aimed at some random building near the vicinity of Team Elite’s official loafing area. Just like Angry Birds, or The Soldier.

“WEWCOME TO YOUW DOOM!”

He pulled the trigger. A shell of raw destruction soared slightly to the right of Team Elite, nearly hitting a Non-Player Character who’d strayed off and completely obliterating the wall of some poor sap’s house.

“…That’s a keeper.” Donald said, satisfaction palpable in his voice. His was not the only one.

“Ha ha ha, this is fantastic!” That birdy girl from before had apparently discovered flight, and sounded absolutely delighted about spontaneously growing wings n’ stuff.

“DO A BARREL ROLL!” Donald called out to her. It seemed appropriate.

OOC: Internet was messing with me, what with me being on a car headed for Canada... So I prepared this post to make up for lost time.

Nimbasa City/Route 16, Unova

Why was everyone being so loud? I could give the newly transformed Staraptor Pokémorph a break, because, well, her body had just sprouted wings and feathers, but the rest of the team had no reason to act like loonies on acid. Well, it was sort of funny to watch and at least they were energetic. They certainly seemed interesting enough and I wouldn’t have minded getting to know them, it was just the noise that got to me. That, and I was sort of concerned by the fact that these people seemed very… difficult to talk to. Either they were strict, serious military types, or they went around swinging guitars at people’s faces.

All the more reason for me not to like guitarists.

One of the calmer ones suggested splitting up, but I was pretty torn with that. Less people to socialize with, with the added trouble that if someone away from the main group would get turned, there’d be no way for us to recognize them among all the wailing Fakemon anymore. That was dangerous.

I rather liked it.

I still hadn’t gotten to experience that rush I came here for. Sure, the atmosphere was… strange, not helped by the people around me, and now that one of us had been turned despite the gasmasks, a threat of being next definitely hung in the air. But it wasn’t enough. Not enough to get me to even open my eyes up properly. I wanted a near death experience.

Man, guess I was pretty messed up too. Oh well.

I threw away my gasmask after a few others did the same, finally breathing in fresh air. Realizing I still held onto it I also put away my teacup, deciding to save it for a better time. Trying to ignore the ruckus around me, I skipped along with a few others to Route 16 and took a look around. Like in the city, people seemed to have left in a hurry. There were Pokémon too, glimpsing at us from the distance and then disappearing when you tried to look back. Made sense, though. If I were a Chimera or a Fakemon or whatever, I sure as heck wouldn’t like people either – I’d either be mad at them for my demise or envious of their still human bodies. Probably. At least I’d be sad I couldn’t play the violin anymore.

And then, someone shot at us.

With a bazooka.

A wall near us exploded, and I couldn’t help but open my eyes properly now. Talk about a wake-up call. Er. Blast.

“Woooah,” I muttered to myself with a whistle. “Someone’s packing big guns, seems like.”

Okay, that had been kind of sort of the near death experience I had been looking for. The suspicious thing was that the blast seemed to have come from one of us. Did we have a traitor in our midst, or was bringing kids even worse an idea than I had initially thought? Eh, didn’t matter, we didn’t die. Kids could play if they wanted to. And that explosion had been sort of pretty. At least people were being lively. Janine didn’t seem to mind her new form all that much either, judging from the way she was flying above us right now. She seemed to have fun.

Wonder if she’d give me a ride on her back if I asked nicely?

But yeah, back to the task at hand.

“Sonatina, come out,” I called as I released my Gengar from its spherical prison. Immediately it looked around with curiosity, its eyes gleaming in the search of a victim for its usual tricks. At least she hadn’t changed. “Hiya there, pal, long time no see. Say, would you mind blending into the shadows and see if you can catch us one of those strange Pokémon?”

The Gengar nodded, and immediately she vanished from in front of me. She seemed enthusiastic as ever. I know we were supposed to catch one of the Pokémon in the forest, but no harm done trying to do that sooner as well, right? She was invisible, so she wouldn’t scare away any of the Fakemon either way. Then we could get that guy’s Gallade to translate and then… I wondered if this’d work. The issue of Neo Genesis switching locations still stood. Still, it couldn’t hurt to even get into one of their old facilities. Everything’d work out; things always did.

Meanwhile, I watched the strange Staraptor soar the skies above us and chuckled a bit.

“I sure hope she still uses bathroom the same,” I mused to the guy walking next to me.

I scoffed as my patient up and ran away from me. This always happened. Ugh. Ungrateful little... I was just trying to help. I mean, yes, I would have put her through absolute hell in the process, but still. I needed to get something out of helping these idiots too, right? Honestly.

Well…

I turned to the direction my patient had ran – no, flown, into, and smirked. On the other hand, I did enjoy a little cat and mouse play every now and again. Plus, I’d catch her anyway soon; while she did seem able to fly with her wings remarkably well, I couldn’t imagine her stamina being all that great. She had just been turned, and trying to fly with body parts you weren’t used to was no easy task. It’d wear her out in no time, and then she’d be ripe to be picked and experimented on~ Of course, this time, I would leave out all the useless pain medication and the like. If she had the guts to defy me, she’d have the guts to be conscious when I opened her stomach and took a look at her insides to see if they mutation changed them up.

People around me were being all sorts of annoying, so I just rolled my eyes and turned to the kids having a lover’s quarrel and everyone else equally not up to this job. “I suggest piping down dearies, otherwise I might need to stick something through your throat to hush you up. Something like… hm…” I tapped my beautiful, lush lips with a finger as if in ponder. “Ah, I know!”

I glared down at them, hands on my hips. “Something like your ribs. Sound good? No? Then shut the hell up.” I rolled my eyes again as I turned back to my two subordinates. “God.”

Letting my delightful smile back on my face, I walked up to my two lackie-boys and placed a finger on each of their lips. “Now, which of you two boys would like a little treat, hmm? ♥” I asked, seductive as I could be as I leaned closer to whisper: “Go catch me that dear little dove, boys. Whichever of you brings her to me first gets praised reeeeal good, alright? Don't miss this chance now ♥”

"Theresa, don't be an idiot! You've got to coax these wild Pokémon, not scare them half to death with a dark little demon like a Weavile." The brunette protested. I noticed that her name said "Janine Price". Damn, prejudiced much? What gave her the idea that Lil was a demon anyway?

The next thing that happened turned my annoyance into joy. It was the first time I smiled that way in a while. Janine had started to morph, gaining Staraptor features. Yes, wings and all. I tried to hold back my laughter as I watched the transformation. Served her right, I guess. Now, she's literally bird-brained.

"These freaking gas masks are freaking useless! Gad, freakin' look at me! Look at what that stupid gas mask did to me! I DON'T DESERVE THIS!" Janine screeched. This made her look even stupider and funnier. Like an angry bird. The person who was either a rich guy or a liar ripped off his own mask, claiming that it was useless anyway. Good luck to him when he turns into a big, fat liar 'mon. Another man released a Gallade, suggesting they head to Lostlorn forest.

The doctor then stepped towards Janine, observing her and then offering to take a few of her samples. Samples? Cut up and slice Janine? I started to laugh, unable to control it. I never laughed this way...until now. The sight was just too...priceless.

"Think she got a bird brain right there?" I commented, crossing my arms. Call me a Schadenfreude, but I just couldn't help it. Bird-brain said that the masks were useless? Of course I wasn't going to take mine off. Who listened to a bird-brain anyway? Besides, it was only her. Not me, not any of us. The masks had to work...at least to some degree.

Naturally, bird-brain freaked out when the doctor approached her and promptly flew away, rather awkwardly at that, as the rest of us stepped out of the warehouse. I must admit that flying had its advantages...but flying alone wasn't everything either. Who would protect her up there anyway? The doctor told her cohorts to catch Janine, bribing them with "a treat". What? Like slaves? As I heard her, I began to get the feeling that something was probably off about her.

Shaking off that thought, I looked to Lilith and motioned in front of me.

"You know what do do, right Lil?" I asked, to which my miniature Weavile smirked and held one clawed hand up. I smiled. Trusty Lil. Even though she was small, she was fast, deadly and strong, perfectly capable at scouting despite not being a bird.

"Now go." I said. My Weavile immediately ran forward and started scouting the way ahead of us. I had no doubt that if she found something...or someone...she would come back to me. She was my Lil after all.

Lostlorn Forest, Unova

Having been the first one to make it to Lostlorn, I figured I should try to find one of those unnatural Pokémon and see if we could figure out where it came from. The idea to have it lead us back to wherever it was released was a good one, but we needed to be a little careful about it. Already, I had seen them run off scared like we were shooting at them.

I had the idea of having one of my Pokémon look like a wild one to one of these unnatural Pokémon. Taking out a pair of binoculars, I scoped out the area ahead, and saw one Pokémon that looked like a combination of a red lion and a brown scorpion. It was still a fair distance away, but if there was any Pokémon right for the job of sneaking around but appearing to be trustworthy, it had to be Guile, my Floatzel. I grabbed his Pokéball, clipped it off the belt, primed it for release by pressing the button, and then tossed it onto the grass.

The Pokéball struck the ground and released a flash of light, which took form and shape into Guile. After a nice stretch, he looked around, realized where he was, and then looked to me for instructions.

"Hey Guile, I need your help," I told him, pointing him toward the unnatural Pokémon. "That Pokémon over there... I have a feeling it isn't natural. I need you to see if you can talk to him and figure out where he came from. Think you could do that for me?"

"Zel!" He nodded in agreement.

He headed closer toward the red lion with the scorpion tail, using the trees to cover his advance. Meanwhile, the red lion didn't really seem to be afraid of a natural Pokémon like Guile. I kept a close eye on both of them using the binoculars to get a closer view without scaring off the Pokémon we were probably going to need to follow. Still, Guile did a pretty decent job, and eventually made it to the red lion Pokémon. I watched carefully as it seemed they were having a conversation. Surprisingly, from where I was standing, as the red lion Pokémon talked to Guile, he seemed more lost, scared, and confused. Eventually, the red lion seemed to have nodded, and then headed away. Guile quickly cast a glance at me, gestured me to follow, and as Guile followed him, I followed Guile while keeping my distance and making sure I didn't scare off the red lion Pokémon. Making sure I kept my distance, I followed the two of them as they headed east.

I wasn't entirely sure where he'd take us, but right now, it was the best lead we had. At least if I did find something, I could let the others know by radio. It seemed like the red lion was heading toward the Marvelous Bridge.

Wherever it was going, hopefully it wouldn't be too far off.

Flying above Route 16, Unova

This was such an awesome getaway plan from that psychotic Dr. Valentine. I swear, she was out of her freakin' mind. She was probably one of these freakishly crazy people that sang along to something by Insane Clown Posse because she had heard it THAT many times and loved the words THAT much.

"DO A BARREL ROLL!" Donald Graystaver shouted out to me from the ferris wheel.

Obviously either a guy who spent too much time goofing around with internet memes or played too much Star Fox 64, but either way, I couldn't help it. I did that barrel roll, spinning in midair five times before flying back on track. This was... just... AWESOME! I did a somersault in midair, and all kinds of other crazy tricks. These guys... they had no idea what they were missing out on. Flying was the coolest thing ever.

"Hell yeah, this rocks, baby!" I shouted, letting the wind flow around me as I flapped my wings.

I totally got carried away, almost forgetting why the heck we were here in the first place. Still, the view from up here was incredible. I mean heck, with this, it made walking seem so obsolete. I'd never have to use a bridge again, never have to climb a wall, or worry about falling off a building, or screwing up at a tightrope walk, among a zillion other things.

Alright, before I forgot about the whole plan, I headed above Route 16, seeing it from above. From up here, nothing really seemed to be too out of the ordinary. I figured I'd scout ahead, maybe report any thing I saw from up here. I was getting a tinge bit tired but I felt I could keep going for a few minutes long before I needed to land somewhere. And yeah, I figured I could do that when I reached the bridge. Anywhere up high where that psychotic Dr. Valentine couldn't even think of touching me was just perfect.

My suggestion didn’t really seem to make things better. Some doctor person came over, wanting to take some samples of Janine. I didn’t know what it was, but for some reason, this person rubbed me the wrong way. I allowed my hand to stray to my pistol, although I didn’t draw the weapon quite yet. I was contemplating threatening her, when Janine just up and flew off.

“Well, that answers that question.” I mumbled, all the while following Alex and another guy I though was named Kris or something like that to Route 16. Vesica was silent as he walked along beside me, simply eying everything cynically. Route 16 looked like a hurricane has blown across it, with cars packed at odd angles, a couple of them thrown around, and debris everywhere.

The guy beside me released a Gengar, and I noted that his nametag said Kristopher. I filed that information away for further use.

“Master…why are you even here?” Vesica asked me. “I thought you swore to leave this kind of thing for idiots and kids with delusions of grandeur?” I paused. That was a somewhat good question. Although I seemed to recalled adding the word drunken before idiots.

Kristopher said something which I didn’t really here, being too caught up in my own thoughts. Why did I come here really, I mused. I could still easily remember chewing out my boss as a form of resigning, an act that had apparently earned me a lot of respect with the younger guys, not that I cared all that much. I had put that chapter of my life behind me.

It took me a moment to realize that as I thought, I had wandered away from the group into the forest.

“I don’t really know why I am here…” I admitted after a moment. Then, I was surprised when something drifted out of the shadows. I paused, trying to figure out what it was. The shape continued to hover just out of visual range, despite the fact that we where steadily approaching it. I paused, drawing my pistol as a just in case measure.

“Vesica…find out what that is.” I ordered. The Gallade nodded before vanishing in a Teleport. I quickly shrugged off my backpack, unzipped it, and pulled out a scope, which I expertly attached to my M4, before zipping my backpack and putting it back on. I holstered my pistol, unclipped the rifle, and then using the scope as a kind of improvised binocular, observed. Vesica had appeared in the shadows, and before he could approach the strange thing, a Pokémon of some sort of lion crossed with a scorpion, I noted something else. A Floatzel was already talking to this Pokémon. After a moment, the strange Pokémon turned and started walking away, and the Floatzel motioned for someone to follow.

Vesica had chosen to remain where he was, listening if I had to guess. I softly approached, taking greet care to be quiet as I moved. As I drew closer, I saw that Alex was following the two, which meant that the Floatzel was likely his. I motioned for Vesica to follow me, before quickly moving to follow Alex.

I didn’t approach just yet; instead I remained further back, sweeping the area with my rifle to make sure nothing was threatening us. I figured Alex knew what he was doing, and besides, if I startled him, he might do something to scare that Pokémon, so I kept my distance, simply watching and waiting.

Was it me, or was the doc a bit loony? Aw well, least she's a real beauty.

Someone fired a rocket off in the distance at a wall, for apparently no reason. Which reminds me, I need to get my Money Launcher patented.

“Now, which of you two boys would like a little treat, hmm? ♥” The doc asked, as she leaned closer to whisper: “Go catch me that dear little dove, boys. Whichever of you brings her to me first gets praised reeeeal good, alright? Don't miss this chance now ♥”

Praised? I better get somethin' else for it too later, if ya know what I mean. But I knew just the thing to get her. "Right love, be back in a sec."

I reach towards my belt and pull out two balls, throwing them. From the ball comes Fleshpound and Harry, me Golurk and Charizard.

"You two lugs, go get that girl over there and bring her over!" They both turned to see the Staraptor girl in the sky, Harry turning back to give me an odd glare, confused as to why she WAS part Staraptor.

"What're you waitin' for? Go!" Both of them flew off towards the girl, turning to the left and to the right respectively to try to come at her from both angles.

It took me until then to realize I didn't have me wad with me. I don't know if I dropped it or if someone took it...Oh well, I've got LOADS A MONEY, so I just wop out another wad and proceed to wave it around at everyone else.

OoC: I still am confused as to why Golurk learns Fly. >.> And yes, every time Harold loses his money he'll pull out a new one. He's got LODS OF EMONE!

After Amy's little... display of rage, a machine from one of my teammate's wrist spoke.

"Ey! Careful where you swing that thing!" it shouted. The voice sounded quite feminine. "You could've damaged my man's handsome face!" Not really remembering that he was wearing a mask at the time.

"... You're a conglomerate of nuts and bolts who is in love with an organic being." I remarked. I opened my copy of 'How I Psychologically Tortured Your Mother-In-Law' and took a screwdriver from it. Opening her up might benefit me in some way. Heck, Maybe I could create a better closed room! "Your probably defective: I can solve it... maybe." I was stopped by Amy.

She gave me that no-no look.

I simply sighed and looked at the ranger. "So... Leonardo," I said, looking at his nametag, "can you please explain to us why you still have your mask on?"

"I'll be walking alongside the rest of the group going to Lostlorn." And with a rather flirty Hollywood kiss on my lips, Amy left.

God, stop making me blush.

"Dang, the 'LET'S GET THE FRICK OUT OF HERE' buisness must've been very high during the evacuation." I remarked, looking at the destruction around me.

I thought I heard a wall crumbling in the distance.

Anyway, back to the scene. A ginormous eighteen-wheeler was turned over, one of the doors wide open, probably because the driver jumped out of the truck trying too leave this goshdang place- wait... did I just think goshdang?

Oh who cares. But apparentley there was oil in the truck, since there were a heck of a lot of dead trees here. Speaking of oil, alot of cars were also around here, almost like a dump.

I calmed the inner hippie raging inside me.

Then, I noticed I was alone.

"HEY! WAIT FOR ME!" I screamed, running into the forest.

"I'm not defective! I'm the best damn conglomerate you'll ever see! Tell him babe!"

Leo sighed and switched Tara off. "Sorry about that."

"So... Leonardo. Can you please explain to us why you still have your mask on?" Nathan asked.

The girl he was with gave him a big kiss, and took off, which made the guy blush.

Leo smiled underneath his mask. "Heh, call me Leo. And I'm still wearing it because I guess I'm a little paranoid." He shrugged his shoulders, and adjusted the mask to allign with his eyes. "It could just be her's that's defective." he pointed to the bird lady, even though she was now flying way off into the distance. "After all, no one else has transformed yet, and it's better to be safe than sorry."

Seeing the rest of the group head off, he decided to walk and talk. He didn't want to get left behind. He went ahead, Shawn floating along next to him. He went slow enough so Nathan could follow. "So, I suppose you and the guitar girl are together?"

Still Human
Marvelous Bridge, Unova

As soon as I made it to the light-blue colored arch bridge while following my Floatzel, Guile, and that strange red lion Pokémon with the scorpion tail, it seemed like he was heading toward Black City. I always thought that place was a little strange, but if Neo Genesis had at least one of their labs holed up there, I wouldn't be too surprised. Trying to keep out of sight wasn't too easy now. I can tell these Pokémon didn't like being out in the open, and being on a bridge was definitely out in the open. But, Guile was doing a good job making sure the strange Pokémon didn't look behind him to see me and...

...Out of curiosity, I checked behind me as well and saw Ian closely following. As for what the others were doing, I couldn't really tell. Maybe they were following another Pokémon. Heck, I didn't even know if this one would lead us anywhere in particular, but I figured it was worth a shot, and if I found anything interesting, I could radio the others. I motioned to Ian to keep quiet, and that the Floatzel was mine. Problem was, unlike the forest, this bridge offered virtually zero cover.

Meanwhile, I wasn't sure how good this strange Pokémon's hearing was, but I figured at long as we stayed at least a few hundred feet away, he wouldn't hear a thing, although Floatzel was doing a pretty good job assuring him. From what I could tell after looking on my binoculars, he was having a conversation with him, keeping him at ease while also keeping him distracted.

Carefully, I kept following both of them as they headed into Black City. I wasn't sure how well Black City had taken the RMG outbreak, but I figured it couldn't be too much more than what Nimbasa had gone though...

Janine Price
Staraptor Pokémorph
Flying above Route 16, Unova

Everything was going great until... it happened. I suddenly saw a freakin' Charizard and a floating Golurk coming right after me. And what was worse, that freaking moron Harold was responsible for it. I swear, I was going to shove that cup of tea so far up his arse that he was going to spitting Tetley for a week!

"What the... ARE YOU INSANE!?" I shouted at them all.

The freaking Charizard lunged right at me, and I quickly flew up higher into the sky, just barely evading the big fat lizard's claws. He snarled at me, and I really felt like giving him the finger. Then, I just barely dodged that big stone fatso's hand reaching out to grab my chest. What the heck was with these guys!?

"WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA, HUH!?" I shouted back at him, getting really pissy about this loser sending his two Pokémon thugs after me for absolutely no apparent reason.

And then, I saw who was responsible. Dr. Freaking Mega Witch Valentine. The mad scientist herself. She was seducing the stupid, narrow-minded twit into doing this so she could use me as a freaking guinea pig! Man, I sure hoped she would get infected. Maybe turn into some really ugly Pokémorph, like a Garbodor, or a Feebas, and maybe even a Muk! My freaking jaw would fall off from the laughter. I'd take photos of it and upload it all over freaking Facebook.

Still, I didn't have any Pokémon that could fly. That meant I was going to have to fight off these two clowns by myself. But... freaking how? These were highly trained Pokémon and I had only been a Staraptor for only about twenty minutes!

And then, right out of the blue, his big fatso Charizard grabs me in his arms, and laughs. I struggled for a bit, and then just as he started headed back toward his pompous master, I give him a really nice, swift kick to the family jewels with the heel of my army boots. Boy, did he let go after that.

As for the Golurk, frick, he was trying to reach out to grab me with his hands, and unlike his fat lizard friend, kicking him in that special spot wasn't going to do squat.

Focus, Janine, focus!!

What the... oh man, I tried focusing. Attacking that big stone giant wasn't going to do squat, but there was one move that a Staraptor could do... Whirlwind. I just had to blow him far away to get away from these freaks... yes, Pokémon, crazy English guy, and super psycho mad scientist also. Oh man, I didn't know how Pokémon performed these crazy attacks, they just did it and always made it seem like there was nothing to it! So how was I supposed to try it? Instinct? I focused my energy, and I could feel the wind gathering around me in the form of a swirling tornado. It started off slow and weak but after a while, I could feel it gathering stronger and stronger the more I concentrated. Yeah... maybe... this had to be the way to do it!

Come on, come on...!

And just as that fat bone-headed moron lunged toward me, I sent the cyclone flying right at him, sending him right back to his trainer. I then quickly flew off, heading toward the bridge, hoping that was the last of the flying Pokémon that doofus had.

I headed to the Marvelous Bridge, and caught sight of Alex and Ian. From what I could tell, they were moving stealthily, and when I looked ahead, I could see what they were following. A Floatzel and a strange new looking Pokémon. I was too high up to get a good look at him, but I figured as long as I flew high and quietly, he wouldn't suspect a thing. Heck, from all the way down there, he couldn't tell what I was.

Theresa Del Monico
Still Human Swadloon Pokemorph
En route to Lostlorn Forest

I walked in the direction Lilith went, along with the others. Still a lot of chaos. I took out one of my guns just in case something happened as I looked around. Lilith was heading for the eastern gate of Nimbasa, towards Lostlorn Forest. I jogged after her, keeping her in my sight.

I saw a few creatures, most of them a jumble of different Pokemon...and random ones at that. I passed by the Ferris Wheel...I was almost out of this crazy city. Lilith had already passed by the gates.; Now all I needed was to....

And that was when some crazy **** happened to me. For a moment, I was fine. The next moment, pain started ripping through my body, but especially my neck...forcing me to collapse on the ground. I felt something tug at my neck and I saw my own skin change color from pale to yellow...not a human yellow color mind you. A long, green leaf cape grew around my neck and fell all the way down to my ankles, covering my body save for the one slit in front, as well as what seemed to be a green hood covering my head. I pulled my hair from behind over my shoulder, only to see that the hair's shade of blond also went from honey blond to unnaturally bright corn-yellow.

"THE HELL!" I I cursed, holding the cape open. This was so impractical. How was I going to move around in this...cape? I hurried towards the gates, Lilith already waiting for me. She looked at me curiously. I could only sign. Damn bad luck!

Once we were out at Route 16, I decided that if I wanted to have it easier, I had to take matters into my own hands. Digging into my belt-bag, I selected one of my throwing-knive, held it firmly and held up one side of the leaf-cape. Concentrating, I started to slice away at the leaf cape. I didn't know it was going to be like this, but it hurt, and the torn edges tarted bleeding, as if it were part of my own human skin. I gritted my teeth as I kept slicing, more blood flowing. I guess this was for the best.

A few more painful slices and a pool of blood later, I was finally done. The leaf cape now only covered my back and was shortened to just above my knees. Rather bloody, but otherwise good enough. I looked up and saw Alex and Ian heading over to Marvelous bridge, seemingly tailing what looked like one of those mixed Pokemon. Lilith looked at me, to which I nodded. We were going to follow them.


Marvelous Bridge

We managed to make it, despite me literally tracking blood behind me and the considerable blood loss. The cuts were beginning to clot and I was probably going to be OK. Alex and Ian were on the bridge, their Pokemon tailing the new one. From behind them, I couldn't move. I gave Lil a look and nodded, giving her the signal. She quietly dashed forward, towards the Pokemon. Silently, I followed behind, watching.

Bottom of the Ferris Wheel, Nimbasa City, Unova

"...YES." Said Graystaver, fistpumping. He hadn't expected her to actually do a barrel roll. That was awesome! She was awesome! ...She was also being attacked by a Golurk and Charizard.

That was no good. Not only did the offenders' decidedly not-morphed status meant Team Elite was fighting amongst themselves, what must've been a fellow gamer was being attacked! The Charizard had been... incapacitated with a well-placed kick, and the Golurk had been Whirlwind'd back to its Poke Ball. Nonetheless, Donald had better make sure she wasn't in any more immediate danger.

'Sides, it not like he had... A whole lot else goin' on... At any rate, his iRectangle was about outta juice, and there was another Angry Bird out there.

He looked back at his weapons. He had decided to keep the bazooka he'd "tested" out next to the rest of the Team, a katana he'd chosen on a whim, and another katana he'd chosen on a whim. In case the other one broke. Or something.

He started to run over the direction she was heading, out of the theme park and into Route 16 past some other Team Elite members. Then he remembered he had one-a those fancy radios on him. He dialed her up.

"Uh... ...Janice, this is Donald. What happened back there, anyway?"

OOC: ...Just a quick one, I don't have time to do a long one right now.

Skylar Lyons
Still Human
Nimbasa City, Unova

Skylar stepped quickly off of the plane. Unlike everyone else, she took her time in getting off the vehicle and into the city. Not that it really was much of a city. Looking around, she saw the dirtiest place she had seen in her whole life. The nature freaks back home who were obsessed with 'going green' would have a major heart attack here. Garbage littered the streets, and the once busy and bustling streets of Nimbasa were now deserted and dusty.

"What the hell..." Skylar shook her head. She needed to find out more about what was going on, and fast. There was a large group of people by a warehouse, and a smaller group heading across Marvelous Bridge. In a split second, she decided which group to join.

"Go, Caeli!" Skylar jumped and pressed the button to the Pidgeot's Poke Ball, landing on her back. "Let's go to Marvelous Bridge!" Skylar wanted to be part of the action...which was totally not what the warehouse magnets were doing. They were just standing there. As Caeli took off into the sky, she realized that the people crossing the bridge weren't together. There was even a half-Staraptor Pokemon flying in the air. Skylar winced, pressed her hand to her gas mask to reassure herself, and pointed to the Staraptor. With an understanding nod, Caeli sped up to fly next to the morph.

Then, Skylar looked down. She saw the odd assortment of people splayed all over the bridge, and gave a quizzical look to Caeli. Her Pokemon shrugged, and Skylar sighed. Hopefully the morph would give her some answers.

"Hey," Skylar started as Caeli flew next to the odd Staraptor. "I was just wondering...can you tell me about this place?" Enjoying the feel of the wind on her face, Skylar took out her ponytail and relished the feeling of her hair flowing back.

"I have no idea what's going on," Skylar confessed. "You're pretty much the first person, um yeah, person, that I've talked to." She crossed her fingers and hoped for the best.

OOC: Really rushed, sorry. Could barely fit this in.

Traynor

Nimbasa

Traynor really could not help it. It was her first time back in Unova for months, and she wanted to see it so badly. As soon as she stepped off of the plane, her Flygon was thrown into the air for Traynor to get a good look over the area with. She made certain her mask was on tight first though. As she flew around the city, she never encountered any of the others, and as such was unaware at that point of any of them changing. She wasn't here for the money too, she wanted to fix Unova and from her view in the air, she was getting a good look over the damages throughout the city.

Completely losing track of time, she turned her Flygon around and headed her way back down towards where she believed the group to have been. Slipping off of the back of her Dragon, returning it to it's Pokéball whilst her Druddigon released itself just in time to swung at and rather literally, punch away some weird Pokémon; looking like a mixture between a Rattata and a Bidoof. It just whimpered and scuttled away down an alley. All whilst Traynor hadn't been paying attention. She headed towards the warehouse, having only seem that group from the sky due to there being a large number there. "So I was... just... taking a look," She panted out, having ran a fair ways to catch up. She fixed up her shirt, having risen up a little and showing the skin of her hip. "So, what's the plan?" She then asked, brushing her light hair out of her eyes.

Kristofer Riveraid
Still Human
Route 16/Marvelous Bridge, Unova

I hadn’t walked for long when Sonatina materialized back in front of me, her tiny arms crossed over her chest. She seemed disappointed, and I couldn’t help but tilt my head, slightly amused over her pout. I was just about to open my mouth and ask about the Pokémon she was supposed to go find, when she stuck one small finger in a direction and muttered her name.

“Over there?” I asked, puzzled, wondering why she was in such a bad mood if she had found a Pokémon after all. Figuring there was only one way to find out, I took out my gun and edged in the direction she had pointed, careful to stay out of sight. It didn’t take me long to figure out why she had such a long face either; it seemed like Ian and Alex – if my memory served me – were already following a Pokémon. Ah, so that’s why she was so sour; she figured that if they were already following one, she didn’t need to catch another Pokémon. Poor thing.

“Well done regardless!” I assured her and patted her head, at which she just turned away and kicked the soil with her tiny foot. She could be so adorable at times. Of course, I’d never dare say that out loud, I didn’t want to be cursed with nightmares for the rest of my short life. Anyway, Sonatina didn’t seem to cheer up, so I just sighed.

“I don’t think you should lose hope, there’s no telling whether or not that Pokémon’s going to lead us anywhere important, so you might get your chance later on,” I tried before patting my shadow with my boot. “Come on, you can come along in my shadow, just promise to stay out of trouble.”

She gave me a smirk, and I knew she wouldn’t keep that promise. Oh well. She disappeared, most likely feeling better and I decided to follow after the group trailing that Pokémon towards Black City. I really didn’t fancy catching another Pokémon and following it elsewhere, all alone. I wanted company. ‘Sides Black City sounded pretty promising; it was a big, somewhat ominous city, didn’t sound impossible for someone to sneak a secret lab or two somewhere in there.

At some point I noticed I wasn’t the only one following the duo; Janine was following from above, and there was a small Weavile sneaking behind the two. And some distance further back, there was… ouch, seemed like someone else had fallen victim to the gas as well. It was the tall, dark woman from earlier – Theresa, with what appeared to be yellow skin, a cape and a hat of sorts. I instinctively grabbed my fedora. By gods, if I turned, I wanted to become something hatless. I wasn’t giving up my own hat no matter what. Come to think of it, I didn’t want anything with a horn either, for the very same reason. Spikes would probably be in the way too, and could my hat stay on top of slimy scales or the sort?

Shrugging such horrid thoughts out of my mind, I walked into Black City, ready to be attacked anytime now. This could all be a trap.



Dr. Valentine
Still Human
Nimbasa City, Unova

Much to my delight, my newest underling seemed very eager to please me, instantly sending out two Pokémon in pursuit of that damned chicken up at sky. He was still calling me “love”, but he was such a doll that I just had to forgive him. Unfortunately, even though it seemed otherwise many a time, he didn’t manage to catch that damn Staraptor. Instead, the Charizard and the Golurk ended up teaching her how to use Whirlwind. Mr. Nurse was running after her on ground, because I had never blessed him with any Pokémon. This wasn't going well. I was starting to get furious.

“Out of all the useless, insignificant-,“ I hissed, ready to punish those two imbeciles for not being able to follow such a simple order through, but quickly regained my composure. No, no perhaps I was going about this entirely the wrong way. If I was going to pursue after her and try to bring her to me by force, of course she was going to struggle and resist. And as much as I loved it when my patients resisted, it’d be difficult to catch her like this, especially since I didn’t happen to carry a flying Pokémon with me. So, rather than pursuing her out in the open like this, maybe it’d be better to just wait. I was a doctor, and she’d need her checkup at some point. She’d need to come to me, especially if I made sure some… unfortunate accidents happened in her vicinity until she bled.

Ah, this was why I was such a wonderful person; beauty, brains, and the will to help the injured.

I sighed longingly and then snapped my fingers again, this time twice to instruct Mr. Nurse to return to me. Then I turned at my other dear – did his nametag say Harold? Such an unfitting name for a pet – and smiled.

“It’s alright darling, you did your best,” I said, pinching his cheek. Hard. Hopefully too hard.

And when I was sure he’d think he would be let off with just that, I added a very sweet: “I’ll punish you later.”

As I was waiting for Mr. Nurse to hurry back to me, I suddenly noticed how hot it was out here. Ugh. Why couldn’t we be stuck in Sinnoh instead? The snowy weather would give me such perfect opportunities to use my beloved furcoats and grow out that Damn Coat’s fur so I could finally skin it and make room for an actually useful Pokémon. I couldn’t wait to get to travel up north.

Just then, Mr. Nurse returned and I nodded approvingly.

“Alright dears, we’re moving out after the rest. We’ll let that winged freak of nature be for now. I do believe that… ah, chance will bring us back together at a later date anyway. Now…” I nodded, and Mr. Nurse knelt, allowing me to place my heel on his neck and get up on his shoulder. No way would I walk and ruin my shoes when I had a perfectly capable vehicle right here with me. I let his yelps of pain fill my ears as my heels left marks on his skin and, once up and sitting comfortably, turned to Harold.

“Harry, sweetie, there’s a parasol in Mr. Nurse’s backbag. Be a doll and hold it over me.”

Route 16

“My, my, what happened here?” I asked from nobody in particular as I took in the sight of what was unmistakably a pool of blood in front of me. I leaned a bit closer but made sure to stay under the parasol at all times. How fascinating. Had someone been killed here? Ah, no, it was doubtful that was the case. While the scene was messy, there were no signs of a corpse, nor any indication the remains had been dragged away. That, and the trail that lead towards Marvelous Bridge indicated someone had been walking. But what were those green… pieces lying about on the ground?

A snap of my fingers and I was presented with a piece up on my sitting place. I pulled a glove in my hand and took some of the matter to myself, examining it. Strange, it seemed like a piece of a leaf, but there seemed to be… nerves…?

“Mis- um, no, I mean Dr. Valentine, look!” Mr. Nurse shouted just then, pointing a finger in the distance. I squinted, and surely enough I did believe I saw a person… or at least, what had been a person walking quite the distance ahead of us. Sprouting a green cape from her back with unnaturally yellow hair, there was no mistaking it; another victim to the gas. An injured, bleeding victim to the gas.

“Oh, it’s like my birthday came early this year! ♥” I mused, excited. The Gods of fortune must’ve smiled upon me. Of course they did, who wouldn’t smile at a kindhearted beauty such as me? I allowed my smile to widen into a grin as I crushed that tiny piece of leaf between my nails.

“Let’s catch up with her and have a little chat, boys.”

Alex Waters
Still Human
Black City, Unova

Theresa joined Ian and I as we walked into Black City, still following the strange red lion Pokémon. First thing I noticed was that like Janine, she was no longer human, having turned into a Swadloon Pokémorph. And as further surprise, I saw she even cut a big piece of the leaf cape off resulting in her bleeding, down to the back of her knees. I figured I wouldn't ask. I'd probably come across as a nagging parent if I did.

Walking into Black City, this place always came across to me as a little eerie. Nimbasa didn't look that great, but Black City, in a weird way, it kind of looked like not much had happened. There was only one major difference. No one here was human. From what I could tell, there were very few Pokémorphs, as most of what I saw seemed to be these "Chimeras" that they were originally referring to. Some of them looked okay. Others looked like something out of a nightmare, made up of Pokémon that were never meant to be put together. It kept me wondering... what exactly was Neo Genesis trying to get out of doing all this?

I could already tell the red lion Pokémon didn't like being here, and was only here because Guile the Floatzel pushed him on. After walking through several city streets, we came across one building that honestly didn't seem that out of the ordinary. Everything was still intact, and it wasn't like there was a riot or something around here. But yeah, it was here that the red lion with the scorpion tail just stopped at what looked like a loading dock, spoke a few words to Guile, and then ran off like a bat out of hell.

The loading dock was pretty much locked, but from what I could see, there was activity here recently. And it seemed like it was the kind of place where people went in and out. However, the door had an electronic lock with a keypad. Still, nothing about the place implied it had anything to do with Neo Genesis.

Janine Price
Staraptor Pokémorph
Black City, Unova

Skylar soon joined me, flying on the back of her Pidgeot.

"Hey," She told me. "I was just wondering... can you tell me about this place? You're pretty much the first person, um yeah, person, that I've talked to."

Uh huh. Yeah, I could tell she was looking at me weird because of what I had transformed into. Heck, I only needed to look at Theresa and remind myself that yeah, Staraptors may not have been my type of Pokémon, but it was a heck of a lot better than some other crap out there. And hey, who knows what this Skylar would look like after this whole trip.

"Don't usually hail from around here," I told her, catching sight of Alex, Ian, and Theresa by what looked like a loading dock. "This place is kinda creepy anyway. There are days where it feels like the whole place just sprang up overnight for whatever reason."

From what I could see in the skies, Black City seemed way more populated than Nimbasa. It was kinda freaky seeing all these weird creatures standing everywhere, not sure if they were new Pokémon, very mutated people, or whatever. And if I wasn't losing it, I would almost saying they were rallying toward some central area of the city. Freakin' creepy.

"Uh... ... Janice, this is Donald?" He radioed me. "What happened back there, anyway?"

"Newsflash, Harold and Dr. Valentine are clinically insane," I told him, hoping I'd be able to ditch that half of the group. "That witch wanted samples off of me, like I'm some freaking lab specimen or some petri dish. And that Harold is her little mutt."

After flying down to meet with Alex and the rest of the group, I saw what they were looking at. A 1987 Keysage electronic keypad. Boy, was that thing old. They looked at it like it was the Grim Reaper, and I just rolled my eyes.

"You... don't think you can figure that thing out, can you?" Alex asked me.

Figure that thing out? Please. I could screw around with these things back when I was only thirteen. I was just about to reprogram the hell out of it when suddenly I heard something else.

<I talked to him. It seems like this is where he came from.>

I blinked twice, not sure who in the group said that. It wasn't until I looked down at Alex's Floatzel.

<He was definitely not normal, that's for sure.> The Floatzel told me, speaking to me in a language I could actually understand.

Holy crap, I suddenly realized I could actually understand what the frick they were saying now. I tried not to say too much. I just approached the keypad, and figured these things were usually pretty stupid in the fact that reprogramming them to change the code was usually pretty easy. And if that didn't work, there were other ways around that too.

Holding the zero, number sign button, and asterisk button usually initiated the reprogramming sequence. Nah, didn't even need to hack into it really. After getting a prompt to mash in a new six digit code, I decided to go with 777428. Lucky sevens, and then Lopunny's Pokédex number, because Lopunny is just awesome. Then, it prompted me to type in the password, and so I did using the new one I made up. Moments later, the loading dock door opened. I swore, that was probably one of the easiest things I've ever had to hack. Heck, it didn't even feel like a real hack to be honest. Anyone could have done that if they knew the trick.

Easy money. After the big metal door opened, I looked inside. Seemed a little dingy in there, mostly concrete walls and floors, along with a big service elevator that could go up, but could also go underground as well.

And there were lots, and lots, and lots of empty cages. All thrown in a pile off to the side. The smell wasn't so hot either. Smelled like these Neo Genesis guys only knew how to screw around with Pokémon, but not actually take care of the poor guys.

This place did look promising when it came to finding the jerks that made these poor, weird Pokémon. I would say head underground. That's usually where the shady business was being done.

Skylar looked dejectedly on as Janine flew down. Wow, that was rude. Answering whatever she needed to and then taking off. Well, you couldn't blame her. Janine's new form must be frustrating the crap out of her. Sighing, Skylar directed Caeli to follow Janine down to Black City and see what the hell everyone was doing.

Skylar touched down a couple feet from some people Janine was heading towards. Wordlessly she joined them, and one gave her a nod of welcome.

"You... don't think you can figure that thing out, can you?" Alex asked Janine.

With a huff Janine totally snatched the thing out of Alex's hands and started fiddling with it. In no time she had hacked through the entire system and with a final push of a button the big metal door opened. Skylar raised an eyebrow in Janine's direction and filed in after her.

"What...what is this place?" Skylar wondered in disgust. It was dirty and smelled like the burrito AA hid in the glove compartment and only discovered two weeks later...which was not a good smell. Skylar saw there was an elevator, which she didn't want to take a chance going in. She really didn't want to take a chance at getting stuck between floors, especially because Janine would probably throw another hissy fit and jab at the Help button until it broke.

"So up or down?"

I followed Alex into Black City, and didn’t comment on Theresa’s sudden appearance. I really didn’t’ want to know how she had gotten some much blood to leave her body. The strange Pokémon lead us to a loading dock before bugging out. I swept my rifle around, trying to find anything threatening. Nothing was.

Janine arrived at that point, along with some other person, whose name I didn’t feel like finding out. She, Janine that is, then proceeded to open the doors with ease, allowing the nastiest smell to float out of the building. Further along was an elevator, which probably led further underground.

I subconsciously cringed, and clipped my assault rifle to my hip again. The last time I had entered an underground facility, I had nearly died, and ten others actually had. I did a quick head count. Six of us counting me, and I mentally vowed that no one was going to die here today.

“What…what is this place?” the new person asked. I paused, and then decided that saying nothing was best. I unclipped my MP5, and unsafed the weapon, before entering the elevator. There were three buttons. The first simply read, Basement, the second, Main Offices, and the third said, Laboratory.

“It seems we have three options. We could go search something out of a horror movie, a basement, or main offices. The offices are likely to have more information that the Labs right now, or at least they might point to other bases we could look at.” I observed to the others.

The smell was awful, but I pushed that aside, keeping my face blank. “I would suggest we search the offices for some kind of useful paper work.” I finished, before waiting to here what the others had to say.

Black City, Unova

I was a little impressed at how Janine got the door open so easily. Meanwhile, the smell was weird, and after walking in, I noticed all the empty transport cages thrown into a corner.

"What... what is this place?" Skylar asked, looking around in disgust.

"Probably where they made the strange and foreign Pokémon," I told her, knowing Guile had been following that strange Pokémon the entire time. "That weird red lion took us here, and I'm not surprised. Seems like something's been going on."

The service elevator still seemed to be working, but yeah, I wasn't sure what we'd find on the other floors.

"So, up or down?" Skylar asked the rest of us.

I wasn't so sure how to get started. Ian got in the elevator and took a look at the button pad.

"It seems we have three options," He told us. "We could go search something out of a horror movie, a basement, or main offices. The offices are likely to have more information than the Labs right now, or at least they might point to other bases we could look at."

That was probably true. From the looks of things, they had probably cleaned out the labs judging from all the empty cages, although I would still search there anyway. Here, it was probably a good moment to see if we could split up and clear out the place from top the bottom faster. We were working against time, after all. Frankly, I was hoping not to walk out of here looking like a freak of ten different Pokémon.

"Check out the offices, I'll head to the basement using the stairs and see what can be found," I told him. "Anyone who wants to come with me, that's fine. Just keep your weapons ready, there may still be someone here."

I took out the MP5K, figuring that was probably a better weapon for these closer quarters than the M249 SAW. Meanwhile, Guile the Floatzel followed me toward the stairs, along with Janine and her Galil rifle. The door to the basement wasn't too far off. After I opened it, I headed downstairs slowly and carefully. Meanwhile, Janine kept close to me as we headed down the dark, concrete stairs.

Once we reached the first of the basement levels, we headed in. Upon opening the door, we came to a hall made of concrete, but still, it looked like no one was around. Compared to the loading dock, however, this place was actually pretty tidy.

"Check the rooms, let's see if there's anything there." I told Janine as I started heading to the first room on the left.

I decided to check out the room on the right. The place was kind of dark, but eh, didn't bother me, as long as nobody jumped out at us and tried to scare us half to death. The door was simple and made of wood, but I really couldn't take a guess on what this place was meant to be. Still, I grabbed the brass handle and pushed inside, keeping my Uzi ready just in case there was someone in here that needed some lead.

I stepped in and found a desk with a phones, and old, ratty-looking computer, a fax machine, and LOADS of filing cabinets and storage shelves. Ugliest archive room I've ever seen, but eh, whatever. I tried searching through a bunch of the things left laying around, and found a bunch of memory keys, DVDs with cryptic labels on them, and other stuff. Yeah, I could have checked it all out, but there was probably way too much. I could spend weeks trying to comb through all this stuff.

And then, weirdly enough, I nearly jumped out of my skin... and feathers, when the fax machine suddenly turned on, and started printing a message. I slowly and carefully approached it, wondering what the heck this was about. When it was all done printing, I simply picked up the papers out of the plastic tray, and read it.

To all branch offices:

Concerning Project Revelation, I'm pleased to say everything was quite literally an explosive success. As most of us have confirmed with our own eyes, humans have become an almost non-existent minority in Unova, and is still rapidly dwindling. It is expected that in a few days time, humans in Unova will become non-existent, thus erasing an old, bland, and obsolete species and will allow Neo Genesis to rise as the new government. Three cheers for that. Noisemakers and party hats will be distributed between 5-7 tomorrow at all locations, and yes, there will be cake. We ask that no one spikes the punch, or that may result in immediate termination of employment.

Anywho, we have decided to go ahead with the Revelation Mutagen Gas deployment in Oreburgh City, Sinnoh. Seems silly that people in Unova get it but the rest of the world has to impatiently wait. For those of you involved in the operation, we require all personnel to meet with the three car, three truck convoy in Driftveil. Come early so you get the best seats and before all the good donuts are gone. As for the convoy itself, it will leave at 6 PM and pass through Nimbasa on its way to Castelia City, and no, there aren't any bathroom breaks, so make sure you go before we leave. Once you get to Castelia, the RMG gas canisters should be ready to be placed on the S.S. Sneaky Pete ship and be ready to leave promptly at 10 PM, tonight. From there, they will arrive at Canalave City and travel east to Oreburgh to be deployed. We expect the gas canisters will likely be detonated sometime in the early morning hours. Rise and shine, Sinnoh!

In other news, the Advanced Evolution Chamber project is nearly complete. The research lab in Undella Town has tested out their prototype and confirmed it is a success, allowing us to evolve whatever Pokémon whenever we'd like, even the ones we created, into new forms. Also, someone got curious and tried it on one of our own volunteers, Mary Sue. As a result, Mary Sue was actually evolved from being a Gifted of a Wigglytuff, Clefable, Altaria, and Togekiss into what we deem as a new Pokémon called "Puffairy." And hey, if it worked on her, it can work on anyone!

In closing, I'd like to say thanks for making Neo Genesis and Project Revelation such a great success. Also, we updated the company branch main office directory and verified numbers, so here are all the new contact numbers and address locations.

It really kind of amazed me how Neo Genesis could be oh so smart and yet be oh so stupid at the same time. It was like wearing a wire and then asking someone to speak into your pocket. I simply just pulled out my radio, and decided to let the others know.

"Hey guys, Janine here," I told them, almost laughing. "You're never going to believe what I just found. Neo Genesis just sent out a stupid memo by fax all over the place with their address locations, and well as some plan of theirs to go blow up another round of RMG stuff in Sinnoh. From reading this, they're planning on getting the cans ready at 6 PM in Driftveil to take it to Castelia City on some ship named 'Sneaky Pete,' which they said is going to leave at 10 PM."

"They also have some weird evolution thing they're making in Undella," I told them. "Sounds like they're using it to evolve their weird new Pokémon and... eh, even some of their Chimeras. Plus, check this out, they've got their chemical plant in Driftveil, more labs in Icirrus, and their corporate office in Castelia."

Huh, what do ya know, that Harold goon was actually right about the chemical canisters. Ah well, whatever. That didn't mean I needed to like the guy. Or his Charizard or Golurk.

"Frankly, I don't wanna see Sinnoh get as screwed up as Unova is right now, so you know, could some of you guys try to handle that convoy before it reaches the pier?" I asked the rest of the team. "And someone should see what's up with this weird evolution device they're talking about in Undella. I'll go, but heck, not alone, thank you very much."

Yeah, this place alone was already giving me the creeps.

"Huff... You guys move fast, don't'cha?"

Following that-bird-girl-her-name-he-forgot-what-it-was, he had come to some building unexceptional except that it was where everybody was. He made a mental note to make sure Dr. What's-Her-Name didn't try anything funny. Of course, it was always the doctors that were evil. Nurses were always nice and assisting, and you never went anywhere without your medic- but it's always the "mad" doctor, isn't it?

Yeah, he thought so.

Upon going through the entrance, he finally rejoined the not-traitorous portion of TE. They were talking and thinking, and thinking and talking about which way to go from the elevator.

That seemed rather obvious. It was always either the top, or the bottom you wanted to head for.

"Okay, I'LL go down with this guy-" He slapped some guy with a rifle on the back- (maybe not the best idea, in hindsight-) "-and check out those labs! The rest of all you..."

Well, now that he looked at it, there was just this other girl around.

"...Well, you head for the top! We'll meet at-"

"Hey guys, Janine here."

A voice came from Donald's radio thinger, apparently that of the bird lady.

"You're never going to believe what I just found. Neo Genesis just sent out a stupid memo by fax all over the place with their address locations, and well as some plan of theirs to go blow up another round of RMG stuff in Sinnoh. From reading this, they're planning on getting the cans ready at 6 PM in Driftveil to take it to Castelia City on some ship named 'Sneaky Pete,' which they said is going to leave at 10 PM."

...That seemed more exciting than staying around this musty place!...

"They also have some weird evolution thing they're making in Undella- Sounds like they're using it to evolve their weird new Pokémon and... eh, even some of their Chimeras. Plus, check this out, they've got their chemical plant in Driftveil, more labs in Icirrus, and their corporate office in Castelia."

Chemical plant in Driftveil?!? A perfect excuse to go fetch his Earthbound cartridge!

"Frankly, I don't wanna see Sinnoh get as screwed up as Unova is right now, so you know, could some of you guys try to handle that convoy before it reaches the pier? And someone should see what's up with this weird evolution device they're talking about in Undella. I'll go, but heck, not alone, thank you very much."

Finished. Then Donald spoke his mind back into his radio:

"Alright! You guys go over to the piers to stop that thingy, and I and whoever else is awesome will head to the chemical plant in Driftveil, smash those labs in Iccirus, and then handle that evolution thing in Undella! STAT! I'm outta here!"

And with that, he was.

OOC: I hope I can still keep this up... Tomorrow should be the worst, I shouldn't be able to have internet in Canada. If worst comes to worst, I give whoever maybe goes with Donald permission to bunny him a bit. Hopefully I should have internet back by then, but... I'm sure I can trust you guys to know when it's necessary, eh?

We reached a loading dock with an old-fashioned keypad lock, which Janine figured out fairly easily. By now, the bleeding had almost completely stopped and the pain wasn't as bad as it was a while ago. Lilith rushed back to my side as we stepped in. This place looked...pretty abandoned, to say the least. As if it was hastily deserted or something. We headed for the elevator, the buttons of which Ian read.

"We could go search something out of a horror movie, a basement, or main offices. The offices are likely to have more information than the Labs right now, or at least they might point to other bases we could look at." He said, presenting us with three choices. Offices? Maybe there was something juicy in there. I headed to the elevator and selected the "offices". The elevator went up a floor before opening up. I stepped out together with Lil and headed for the closest door, pushing it open.

It was an office alright, with three nice-looking computers and desks, though the place in general was rather cluttered. Papers scattered on the desks, keyboards crooked. Same thing as when we got in. I sat in front of the closest computer, turned on the computer and took out a small crimson disc from my belt bag. Now...it was time to work my magic. Several folders, lined up in columns, in plain sight on the desktop. I fished for my flash drive and stuck it into one of the CPU's ports. I smirked as I copied all the files into my flash drive. Once I was certain that was all, I then placed my CD inside the CPU. This was the fun part.

A white box popped up, showing all the storage devices the computer had currently, including my CD and my flash drive. I quickly ejected my flash drive...of course I didn't want to accidentally delete what I just put in. After that, I clicked on the CD icon, then ran what I needed...a hack known as The Black Hole. Well, it was definitely one in the literal sense when it came to a computer's files. A gray box popped up, showing the program's usual options and checkboxes. I clicked what I needed and planted the hack into the computer, before ejecting my CD and turning the CPU off. Anyone who turned it on again will experience the agony of losing all of his or her files right in front of their very eyes on the monitor. Effective and satisfying, I must say. I moved on to the next computer and turned it on.

"Damn, same files." I muttered as I looked at the desktop. Exactly the same. Perhaps the last computer in this room had the same files? Doesn't mean that I shouldn't delete them. Sticking my disc in, I repeated the process, planting the hack, as with the third computer. Still the same files. However, I remembered a few more doors. Maybe they held more information? I got up and headed out, about to get to the next room. However, a voice from my radio stopped me.

"Hey guys, Janine here. You're never going to believe what I just found. Neo Genesis just sent out a stupid memo by fax all over the place with their address locations, and well as some plan of theirs to go blow up another round of RMG stuff in Sinnoh. From reading this, they're planning on getting the cans ready at 6 PM in Driftveil to take it to Castelia City on some ship named 'Sneaky Pete,' which they said is going to leave at 10 PM.

Plus, check this out, they've got their chemical plant in Driftveil, more labs in Icirrus, and their corporate office in Castelia." Janine revealed.

"Frankly, I don't wanna see Sinnoh get as screwed up as Unova is right now, so you know, could some of you guys try to handle that convoy before it reaches the pier? And someone should see what's up with this weird evolution device they're talking about in Undella. I'll go, but heck, not alone, thank you very much." She continued, presenting me with a choice. Castelia or Undella? Both were pretty close by. However, the evolution in Undella intrigued me. I remembered one of the files I stole...or was it a program? It definitely had to do with evolution if I remembered correctly.

I made up my mind. I was going to Undella...not as if we had to pass Lacunosa or anything. Taking the elevator back to the main floor, I took out my radio and held it to my mouth.

"This is Theresa. I'm up for Undella here. Plus, I think I found something...nice." I said, taking out the flash drive as I did.

Black City, Neo Genesis base

Alex and Janine decided to go and investigate the labs, which probably wasn’t a bad idea, but not a job I wanted. While they headed downstairs, I waited a moment for others to get in the elevator, before pushing the button for Main Offices. The elevators motor squealed as it pulled the cart upwards, before stopping.

“Master…something is wrong here.” I had nearly forgotten about Vesica. I spared the Gallade a glance, but saying nothing in favor of starting to search.

The offices were immaculate, no papers out of place, heck, if I didn’t know better, I would swear no one worked here. I ducked into an office and my first action was to nearly shoot the person sitting behind the desk.

“Good afternoon Ian Blackwood.” The person announced. Whoever the person was, they were male, about six feet tall, and human. So for the moment I wasn’t going to shoot him.

“Master…I do not like this person…” Vesica murmured. I kept my gun aimed before speaking.

“How do you know who I am?” I whispered, tensing. The person smiled.

“I know all about you Mr. Ian Blackwood. You were a soldier for the Region of Sinnoh, quite well respected, and honored. You were given command of a squad at a young age, and were given command of the infamous Delta Incident, and the only survivor. I must say, you gave us quite a scare.” The man smiled benignly.

“You are claiming responsibility for Delta?” I whispered, my vision beginning to tunnel, showing nothing but the man’s face down my rifle sights. The man laughed delightedly.

“You will find you answer in Undella Mr. Blackwood. Until then, TTFN, Ta ta for now!” I opened fire, emptying an entire clip of nine millimeter bullets into the desk, the well, the general area, trying to shoot the man, who had vanished.

“Master he is gone.” Just like I had been doing all day, I ignored my Pokémon, before searching the desk. Nothing of use came up, except for a new clip for my MP5, which I promptly inserted into the weapon.

"Hey guys, Janine here," My radio buzzed to life. "You're never going to believe what I just found. Neo Genesis just sent out a stupid memo by fax all over the place with their address locations, and well as some plan of theirs to go blow up another round of RMG stuff in Sinnoh. From reading this, they're planning on getting the cans ready at 6 PM in Driftveil to take it to Castelia City on some ship named 'Sneaky Pete,' which they said is going to leave at 10 PM."

"They also have some weird evolution thing they're making in Undella," Janine went on. "Sounds like they're using it to evolve their weird new Pokémon and... eh, even some of their Chimeras. Plus, check this out; they've got their chemical plant in Driftveil, more labs in Icirrus, and their corporate office in Castelia."

I smirked. It seemed that I wouldn’t’ have to go out of my way to find answers, all I had to do was investigate Undella then.

"Frankly, I don't wanna see Sinnoh get as screwed up as Unova is right now, so you know, could some of you guys try to handle that convoy before it reaches the pier?" I mentally agreed with that statement. "And someone should see what's up with this weird evolution device they're talking about in Undella. I'll go, but heck, not alone, thank you very much." while she was talking, I made my way to a nearby set of stair.

"This is Theresa. I'm up for Undella here. Plus, I think I found something...nice." Theresa offered up while I was walking. slipped down the stairs, moving silently. When I got to the ground floor, I found Theresa looking to the other direction, staring at a flash drive. She hadn't noticed me yet, something that I metntally thought to be careless. I recalled Vesica before speaking.

"So what is this nice thing you found?" I also pulled out my radio. "This is Ian, I am going to Undella." I told the others.

Neo Genesis Pokémon Creation Lab, Black City, Unova

With the stuff Janine found, I could tell Neo Genesis really didn't expect people to be probing around in here. Or, they were crazy about genetics that they totally lost rationality. Either way, it worked for us. With Janine's documents, we knew what they were up to. But that didn't mean it was good.

Donald planned on heading to Undella to shut down whatever weird evolution device or thing they were making over there.

"This is Theresa," She said into the radio. "I'm up for Undella here. Plus, I think I found something...nice."

"Gotcha, we're on our way," I told her, figuring there wasn't much else down here besides a mess of papers about what Neo Genesis was making in terms of new Pokémon.

To be honest, I didn't understand most of this stuff anyway. It was all genetics, which meant a lot of biology and stuff. My specialty was working on engines and brakes, not this science lab rat stuff. As for Janine, when I met up with her again, she just shrugged.

"Well, a lot of this stuff seems to be journals and lab reports about all the genetic stuff they did on these poor Pokémon," She told me, really not knowing what information to bring along. "To be honest, the Unova FBI could spend years into this stuff, so I'm not really sure what to bring along."

"Hey, don't worry about it," I assured her with a smile. "Seems like Theresa found a Flash drive. You've got the computer to read it, right?"

"Yeah, but... eh, not crazy about her," Janine shrugged. "I mean, you're a cool guy, but her, eh, she probably thinks she's hot that she found something. We'll see, but I'm not holding my breath."

We then headed upstairs, and eventually we did find Theresa. I got a good look at it before I took it and handed it to Janine with the laptop. Janine just looked at it, shrugged, and turned on her laptop, not really expecting anything interesting. After it booted up, I got a good look at Janine's screen, and she had an overly cute winking Lopunny as her desktop wallpaper. She then inserted the flash drive and we got a good look at its contents.

I found this to be really silly and useless. So, Theresa found one freakin' flash drive. Big deal. I found a zillion DVD-Rs downstairs and didn't think any of those were any more special than this thing. But, I accessed a few of the files, and... my jaw freakin' dropped.

This whole flash drive was a freakin' genetic manipulation cookbook. Everything anyone needed to know about reading DNA, screwing around with it, and changing any living critter into something else was in here. Okay, yeah, this was probably more important than the archival logs and journals downstairs, but...

"Holy frick, this is everything..." I told the others, looking at the files. "Guys, this crapola is scary stuff. I mean look at this diagram. If they really wanted to turn you into some crazy critter from a horror movie, they'd know just the way to do it. Heck, according to this, they've been using Pokémon as catalysts simply because there's so many of them and... they could use their favorite ones to turn themselves into some kind of crazy combo creature with them."

"You think Unova would be interested in this?" Alex asked me.

"Hell yes, of course they would," I told him, almost finding that to be a stupid question. "Although yeah, they would find it really insane. According to this, they have a way to choose what kind of 'Chimera' they can become, whereas everyone else is stuck getting turned into some randomized monster from the gas."

Heck, that was crazy too. They could use that as leverage over the people that got crappy forms. So far, mine wasn't bad at all, but that could change. As for Theresa's... wasn't horrible, but there was way better. Obviously she hated it from how badly she ripped a nice chunk of her new self off.

"Listen guys, we'd better get out of here," I told the others. "There's still plenty of people down in Nimbasa, hopefully they'll be smart and stop the convoy. Let's head to Undella and stop whatever maniac thing they've got going down there."

I packed everything up and opened the door. I wasn't sure what kind of stupid, crazy thing was going on over there that involved freakin' evolving former humans, but I figured that kind of thing hanging around for long couldn't have been good. Now, we just needed to hope we didn't run into something stupid along the way.

"So what is this nice thing you found?" I heard a male voice ask from behind me, which made me turn around. It was Ian. I smirked as I held up the flash drive.

"A bunch of files. If I recall correctly, it's mostly on Chimera evolutionary processes, genetics, DNA, evolutionary restrictions, a database of the current species, the process' genetic effects on humans, genetic manipulation a few others...and what looked like a program of sorts. Like, it wasn't the same file type as the ones I know for certain are documents...so my best guess is it's some sort of program. Hey, I'm no biologist." I replied, before putting the flash drive back into my belt bag.

"And I wiped out the files on the computers, just to make sure." I added, before Alex and Janine emerged from the basement. I handed the flash drive to Janine, who inserted it into her laptop. I noticed the smug look on her face and glared. She probably thought that it was useless...again. Strike two. As if she knew everything...

"Holy frick, this is everything...Guys, this crapola is scary stuff. I mean look at this diagram. If they really wanted to turn you into some crazy critter from a horror movie, they'd know just the way to do it. Heck, according to this, they've been using Pokémon as catalysts simply because there's so many of them and... they could use their favorite ones to turn themselves into some kind of crazy combo creature with them." Janine finally said, which made me smirk a bit. So, whatever I found was really nice.

"You think Unova would be interested in this?" Alex asked, to which Janine confirmed. I thought about how Chimera forms can be chosen and looked down at myself once again. Curse my luck, I wanted to be something that I didn't find unattractive enough to literally rip myself. Maybe this was going to help me out. I mean, Swadloon? Not very useful save for forests.

"Listen guys, we'd better get out of here. There's still plenty of people down in Nimbasa, hopefully they'll be smart and stop the convoy. Let's head to Undella and stop whatever maniac thing they've got going down there." Janine continued, interrupting my thoughts.

"Yeah, sure." I replied, allowing Lil to climb atop my shoulder, she was smaller than average after all, as I followed Alex and Janine out of the door. Now that we had some idea of what we had to do and look for, I guess we'd be getting somewhere, as long as no crazy **** happens.

Alex Waters
Still Human
Black City, Unova

After heading out of the lab, we stepped out once again into Black City. I wasn't sure what the others were going to do, but I knew I was at least going to Undella. Theresa and Janine decided to come along, so I figured this should be fun. I wasn't too keen on walking all the way over there, so I figured there had to be an abandoned car somewhere.

Meanwhile, Janine kept typing away at her laptop, smiling and even giggling at stuff. Was she really reading that flash drive's contents or just screwing around?

I managed to find a white SUV that looked like it had been abandoned, and thankfully, unlike many of the other cars, this one wasn't locked in the panicked traffic jam that was trying to get out of the city. The driver's door was opened, and after peering inside, I managed to find an extra pair of keys in the sun visor.

"Let's get in, we'll get there faster if we drive," I told the other two girls.

"Mmm," Janine muttered, opening the side passenger door before stepping in.

She was barely paying attention to what she was doing while she was so preoccupied with her computer. After sitting down in the driver's seat and shutting the door behind me, I saw the SUV was generally clean, or at least it didn't have the driver's crap and trash everywhere. That was always disgusting whenever I entered into someone else's car.

"Oh Alex... you've got to see this!" Janine squealed in excitement. "There's this cool program that allows you to preview Pokémon mutations!"

"...And this is a good thing?" I asked her, looking at her like she was a little nuts.

"Ha ha, well..." Janine replied, flushing with embarrassment, "...what it does is you can see what you'd look like if you inputted certain Pokémon into the mutagen. See, you could become this adorable Bellossom-Lilligant-Venusaur Chimera I made up!"

I then looked at the result she conjured up with this program she found, and couldn't help but nearly wince. The result looked like it had never been human in the first place. Did she really think I'd look good if I wore a skirt of green and yellow leaves, a giant Venusaur flower on my back, and have flowers all over my head?

"Not a chance," I told her, definitely not going for the flowery look.

"Oh alright," She sighed. "But trust me, there's plenty of other cool combinations out there for you."

Wasn't the whole goal of this mission to stop this mutagen stuff in the first place? I dunno, maybe she was just going crazy. I turned on the ignition and prepared to head out of here.

Hey, I thought he'd look pretty cute like that. Or I could go for it too. I dunno, being a flower might be an interesting experience! Ah whatever, I could save that one for later.

While we waited for Theresa, I continued playing around with it. Alex... ah, I had to find something he'd agree with. Something cute... okay, not too overly cute, but cute and cool. Something... Lopunny. Oh yes, definitely Lopunny. Now, I just needed to find something that could work alright for a guy. I figured I'd think it over a bit more, but if he was going part Lopunny, then oh, I'd have to do the same for sure. It would be so cute!

So I dug around in the other files, and found some interesting information. Especially with the whole evolution thing they had going on.

"Okay, so according to this, and the report I found, it turns out you can use a bunch of Pokémon mutagens to turn someone into a Chimera, and then... evolve them like a Pokémon."

"Eh, that's kind of weird," Alex told me, looking a little doubtful at that. "Why would anyone want to do that to themselves?"

"Well, as it turns out, according to this..." I told him, reading over the fine details, "evolving as a Chimera essentially turns you into a new Pokémon, and makes you resistant to the gas. You become bigger the way a Pokémon would after evolution and everything that was a part of you as a Chimera gets blended together and upgraded. Wow, that's... actually pretty cool."

Hmm, that could mean I could become a super-powered bunny of awesomeness for real! And so could Alex! Well, if I managed to get him to agree to it.

"So what if you don't evolve and just stay as a regular Chimera?" Alex asked me.

"Says here that you'll still keep getting mutated by the gas," I told him after reading it. "What these Neo Genesis dudes are essentially doing is turning themselves into Chimeras of choice, and then evolving themselves to become ultra Pokémon."

"And you're thinking of doing the same exact thing they're doing?" Alex asked me, probably thinking I was a little nuts.

Ugh, I know, I know, I shouldn't be doing this kind of thing, but... oh, it was so tempting! I could explain to Unova that... well, I figured I could lie and say Neo Genesis turned me into a cute, ultra-powered bunny. Wow... that sounded awesome!

"Well..." I told him, a little bashful about that before coming up with a good excuse. "Yeah... but there's a good reason for that! Think about it, if they're doing this to themselves, well, we'll need to do it too to put us on even ground with them! And as a defense to ensure they don't turn us into something rotten and ugly! Why Alex, I'm sure... I'm sure you wouldn't want to be turned into a Garbodor-Primeape-Muk Chimera and then evolved to become something horrendous, would you? I mean, if you pick something good and cool and evolve yourself before you face them, they can't do that kind of thing to you!"

He seemed... a little convinced, but still unsure. Wow, thinking about that over again, I was almost sure we'd have to do that.

Now... what about Theresa? That Swadloon look... yeah, that could go out the window. She's probably be a better candidate for the Bellossom-Lilligant-Venusaur treatment. We could then evolve her and make her a pretty flower! Man, I couldn't imagine how beautiful that would look after evolution. That sure would be a major improvement over her dreadful and morbid look.

I kept playing around with the preview Chimera simulation program a bit more. Okay, I knew why and how what Neo Genesis was doing was kinda wrong, but oh man, I could see why they were doing it.

Alex and Janine came out, and Janine got into the flash drive without difficulty. I followed the group into an SUV outside which seemed to be functional. I climbed into the back, pushing some junk aside. Janine meanwhile was going nuts with her computer, having found some kind of program that allowed one to preview mutations. Then she found out one could evolve said mutants, which just scared me.

I had shot some pretty hard to kill things in my life, including rampaging Pokémon, running people, and my own squad mates. But never in my life did I think I would have to shoot some kind of giant Pokémon hybrid, I didn’t even know where to begin in trying to shoot something like that. I might be a dead shot, but how could you even kill a monster like that? It might have three hearts, two brains or what ever else these crazy bastards could think up.

Still, Janine did have a point about the usefulness of such of thing. I paused to consider the uses of such a transformation. It would certainly put us on a more even playing field with the enemy that is for sure. I decided that I wanted a stab with that program, mostly to have something to do while we traveled to Undella.

“Can I have a whirl on that program?” I asked Janine. I was as curious about what kinds of craziness I would be shooting at some point, so I didn’t hesitate out of shock or something. At least, that is what I told myself. Privately, I had to admit to wanted to see what interesting combinations I could come up with for myself.

As I climbed into the SUV together with Ian, I peeked over Janine's shoulder and saw that what I suspected was a program was indeed one. A very odd one at that. It allowed one to try virtually any combination of all the Pokemon and preview them as Chimeras. I sat down and craned my neck at the screen. What I saw made me groan inwardly.

"See, you could become this adorable Bellossom-Lilligant-Venusaur Chimera I made up!" Janine said, addressing Alex. Alex...a male. A most-likely straight male...becoming...that? What use did a fully Grass Chimera have besides looking terrible and blending into some forestry? Even this Chimera did not look like it was going to work at that. Too conspicuous, too many weaknesses...extremely impractical. I shook my head in disagreement.

Janine went on to explain how evolution prevented any further infections, and to me, essentially prevented rotten luck. It sounded pretty nice...considering the pros seemed to outweigh the cons. However...Grass Chimera? Definitely not nice! I took one look at Janine's face while she kept tinkering at the program. I did not like what I was feeling. That girl did what she wanted...and if she wanted that weird Chimera saddled on someone...damn, it wasn't going to be me, or any of us for the matter.

Glaring at the saved image of the Grass Chimera, I then took her laptop just as Ian asked to check the program. I definitely did not want him to see that scarring image.

"This one..." I began, pointing at the picture.

"Is highly impractical. Undella is a beach, not a forest, and we'd probably be arriving by nightfall. Plus, tell me how many forests here in Unova are tropical jungles? Yeah, zero. What about poison? What about burns? Do you want the doctor chasing you?" I continued, before starting two new bases. Selecting some Pokemon to try out, I kept thinking as I spoke.

"Besides, on the question of transport. This form doesn't even fly or float and nor is it very fast. Your Staraptor now? At least it got wings and is very fast. How about...these." I finished, before turning the computer to face them, showing the ones I created, attuned to my taste of course.

The two Chimera forms I chose according to my tastes were pretty similar in essence, being rather wolf-like and dark in nature. One of them was a combination of Houndoom, Lucario and Darkrai and the other one was a combination of Zoroark, Houndoom and Flygon. Both forms were speedy and attractive, and one was even capable of flight. I grinned. Undoubtedly much better than that Bellossom, Lilligant and Venusaur one.

"What do you think? Flowerpot or these?" I asked.

After Ian got in the car, I began driving through the chaotic streets. Seriously, what a mess this place was. And there were plenty of Chimeras too, from the bad, the ugly, the okay, and the just plain freakin' weird. But it was adding up though. It seemed like a bunch of these people had gotten infected again and again, at least half a dozen times over, all from the gas that was around. And they were still getting infected.

I couldn't help but think of Janine's idea again, voluntarily turning ourselves into... whatever, just to not get infected like these poor people did. I was not going for that Bellossom thing she was suggesting though. Flowers were definitely not a unisex thing like she was thinking.

"Can I have a whirl on that program?" Ian asked Janine.

"Sure, it's pretty cool!" Janine told him, just about to hand him the laptop.

However, just before he got his hands on it, Theresa quickly snatched it away.

"This one," Theresa told her, pointing at the laptop picture, "is highly impractical. Undella is a beach, not a forest, and we'd probably be arriving by nightfall. Plus, tell me how many forests here in Unova are tropical jungles? Yeah, zero. What about poison? What about burns? Do you want the doctor chasing you?"

"Oh please, we're probably miles away from that psycho now," Janine rebutted. "And come on, it has it's uses! Plus it looks awesome!"

If she thought it was so awesome, she could go for it then. But whatever, I kept on driving. Normally, it would have been easy with the lack of other people on the road, but then again, people left things in a mess when people started to panic. Debris and garbage was everywhere, but thankfully, this wasn't my car, so it didn't matter how banged up this thing got, just as long as it stayed alive for as long as we needed it.

Gawd, Theresa was such a party pooper.

"Besides, on the question of transport," Theresa continued. "This form doesn't even fly or float and nor is it very fast. Your Staraptor now? At least it got wings and is very fast."

"Well, I suppose that's true..." I replied with a sigh, knowing I sure would miss flying.

I couldn't really think of a way to get wings on the back of that first Chimera form without... ouch, taking out the beautiful back flower. Nothing else could really fit. Meh, I just didn't want to see that one go to waste. Flying was too cool to give up though. But between the flowers and flying... I really liked flying.

I let her mess around with it, although I couldn't help but feel bad for poor Ian, who asked to try out the program first before she got her grubby, evil hands on it first. But yeah, I figured that's the kind of witch Theresa was. Selfish, conceited...

"How about... these?" Theresa asked, showing me her concoctions.

I looked at them and wasn't sure whether to laugh or just be appalled. The first was a satanic combination of a Houndoom, Lucario, and Darkrai, pretty much as dark and morbid as they come. Horns, spikes, smoke, and probably bled toxic pestilence, sin, doom, despair, hatred, all those lovely things. And silly, stupid Theresa, that one didn't have wings either! Here she was, honking on at me for that and she couldn't even follow her own stupid made up transportation rule. Really peachy.

And the second was a Zoroark, Houndoom, and Flygon. Essentially, winged wolf from the bowels of Hell. I swore, I could taste the fire, sulfur, and brimstone just looking at these.

"What do you think?" Theresa asked us with a grin. "Flowerpot or these?"

"Eww," I spat at her, really kind of disgusted at what she came up with. "Try picking something that doesn't look like a pet the devil himself would keep around. For the sake of my own soul, Flowerpot for sure."

Sheesh, Theresa's mind must have been a death metal concert that never stopped playing. She was probably one of these people that couldn't stop listening to Slipknot, Cannibal Corpse, or some vulgar, evil crap like that. Just... gross. Seriously.

Okay, so it was clear no one really wanted this Bellossom-Lilligant-Venusaur Chimera form I thought of. I mean, it even sounded like Theresa would give me hell over it even I chose it for myself. Maybe I'd just compromise and go with something else. Something with a Lopunny was still a really great possibility. And something like that might be easier to give wings to. At least that would get Theresa to shut up... hopefully.

After looking out the windshield, I could see Undella Town was finally in view. Man, I couldn't imagine what this lab or evolution machine thing was going to look like...

I rolled my eyes as I heard Janine's expected protest. Arceus...what was with that girl? Seriously...Flowerpot?

"Eww. Try picking something that doesn't look like a pet the devil himself would keep around. For the sake of my own soul, Flowerpot for sure." She spat, making a disgusted face. Devil? Man, either she had really bad taste or had no common sense. I'd probably go with the latter. A combination of Venusaur, Bellossom and Lilligant was definitely on the slower side. Both my combinations were very speedy, one was a flyer with wings and the other, by the looks of it, was probably a levitator or a floater. Sure, they were definitely not tanks and walls, but I knew that they were good forms in terms of offense or stealth, if in case a mission called for the latter.

"Soul? For Arceus' sake, there's no Shedinja or Chandelure in these forms! You better think of something more...practical. And less ridiculous. As I said, there's no tropical jungle out here. And remember, the doctor. Don't ever think that you're in the clear, she can catch up anytime. Again, do you want to be dissected? I sure as hell don't want to. Get some Psychic in your damn form...or Ghost...at least you wouldn't need to lockpick. Damn, even Fire's good for you." I replied, adamant. As much as I hated her, casualties was not something I was looking forward to. Casualties on our side would probably spell trouble, and I'd much rather avoid such things happening.

As the van drew close to Undella, I saved the forms I created before passing the laptop to Ian. Man, hopefully both him and Alex ignore Janine's craziness over this.

Man, those two just kept at it. Theresa seemed to be making more sense than Janine about what kind of form to pick, but then again, I wasn't so sure about the whole plan to begin with. Route 14 was a bit more of a mess toward this part of the road, but at least I was getting there, though there were times I had to go off road to avoid stupidly placed cars and debris caused from all the chaos earlier.

"Soul?" Theresa asked Janine, thinking she was nuts. "For Arceus' sake, there's no Shedinja or Chandelure in these forms! You better think of something more...practical. And less ridiculous. As I said, there's no tropical jungle out here."

"Fine, geez, holy crap, Theresa," Janine spat, backing off. "Ya know, it was just a freakin' suggestion."

"And remember, the doctor," Theresa warned her. "Don't ever think that you're in the clear, she can catch up anytime. Again, do you want to be dissected? I sure as hell don't want to. Get some Psychic in your damn form...or Ghost...at least you wouldn't need to lockpick. Damn, even Fire's good for you."

"Psh, screw that witch," Janine replied, hating on Dr. Valentine again. "We're probably miles away from her anyway, but if she even thinks of laying a hand on me, I'll rip if off and make her choke on it!"

In the meantime, I drove the SUV into Undella Town. Made me wonder what these mad scientists were up to. Problem was, it wasn't so easy to distinguish between them and the unfortunate civilians that got turned into really freakish Chimera forms. And some of them were pretty bad. Most of them went running as soon as the SUV drew close to them, while others just stared with their hideous, mutated faces, moving only their gaze.

Freaking hell, man, that stuff was nightmare fuel. I was thinking it was crazy to change ourselves with this evolution thing like this, but considering what would happen to us if we didn't do that... there wasn't much choice. We were screwed the moment they dropped us off and we found out the hard way the freakin' gas masks didn't work.

Undella Town itself seemed to be the stuff of a zombie apocalypse. Stores were looted and then abandoned, trash and other crap was thrown around, the traffic lights were just blinking yellow throughout the whole town, and every now and then, we'd drive past a mutant freak that again, just stared at us or ran like hell. Still, these obviously weren't Neo Genesis's goons.

After going to the address that was listed on Janine's fax, we came across what looked like an abandoned manufacturing and research plant. Some of the windows were dirty and broken, the paint was peeling off, the parking lot was trying to be overtaken by weeds and grass, and a lot of the metallic gates, pipes, and fixtures were rusting.

"Yeah, definitely the place," Janine said as I parked the SUV right outside one of the doors. "I doubt Unova's pen-pushers ever checked out this place to see what was cooking."

Either that, or something happened to the ones that did and no one ever found out...

Since there was no semblance of a parking spot left on this beat-up tarmac parking lot, Alex just parked anywhere and stepped out. I got out too, a little bit happy I could finally spread my wings again and not have to sit on the edge of my seat facing sideways because there was no way to put my wings to the back of the chair without crushing them. My butt was a little sore, but I could get over that in time.

Okay, so the "Flowerpot" form was probably a bad idea. And yeah, I didn't see a guy like Alex jumping to try that kind of thing out. It was definitely not a guy's form. I had to think of something cute, but practical and cool. Something even Alex wouldn't mind doing. I'd like him a way lot more if he became something a bit cute like what I hoped to come up with.

Theresa wouldn't whine if I came up with something good combined with Lopunny. Not grass. Wow, did she hate grass types. Enough to even rip herself into several pieces after becoming one. So, Lopunny, wings, no grass, and something with psychic or fire. Problem was so many psychic types were just plain ugly. I figured I liked fire types a bit more. They were a bit more... plushy.

We got to the first rust-encrusted door that was closest to where we parked, and I quickly realized it was locked after trying to push and pull it. Still, something about the whole thing seemed a little off. The rust, it seemed, covered the door in a splash pattern... meaning someone purposely wanted it there. Taking a step back, I took a look around at the paint and the windows, and I could tell, someone disguised this place to look old, decrepit, and abandoned. The door lock, however, was pretty solid.

"Think we should try barging in or find another way around?" I asked the others.

We finally arrived in Undella Town, after that heated argument with Janine. Thankfully, she somehow seemed to understand...a bit at least. Damn, the Grass-type really is impractical with its susceptibility. A fast Grass-type like Sceptile wasn't too bad, but those Grass-types? Hell no. Stretching my neck, I looked out of the van. Undella...wasn't this place supposed to be a beautiful beach getaway? Good times...when mom used to take me down here...and dad too, back when he was still his jolly old sober self. Good times, unfortunately long past. Undella looked like a mess now. Chaos, abominations running around...one huge mess.

"****..." I thought as I took in everything. Since when was Undella...this way? Now? The start of the infection? Or...was I dreaming. No, I wasn't unfortunately. We passed by several streets until we reached an abandoned building...well, it looked abandoned. Janine confirmed it to be the address.

As soon as I got down from the van, I stretched myself a bit. Sitting down in a cramped place made my body slightly stiff, and this leaf cape wasn't making it any better. Stupid leaf cape...it did nothing except for some minor camouflage. I followed Janine and Alex towards the closest door on the seemingly-abandoned structure, taking out one of my pistols just in case. As I got closer however, I felt that horrible pain in my body for the second ****ing time again, causing me to collapse.

"What the ****-..." I exclaimed, before groaning as the pain overtook me. That...gas...again. How unlucky was I? My back felt like it was on fire...well, my whole body did. Something was tugging from my back...wings. Definitely wings. The pain faded after a while, but it left me...damn, how could I even describe it? Once I got myself back up, I looked down and saw that my skin was not just yellow...but yellow with small red and blue triangles that looked suspiciously like sprinkles. The lock of hair over my shoulder wasn't just yellow but was yellow, red and blue striped. The green leaf cape had vanished, but it was replaced by a pair of green wings...green Togekiss wings. Togekiss? Damn, just damn.

"Think we should try barging in or find another way around?" I heard Janine ask, to which I stepped forward. Yeah, I was hideous alright, but I don't feel like I sprouted a bird-brain just yet. I looked at the lock intently, before touching it. Steel, definitely Steel. I remembered my encounter fighting someone's Togekiss once. Aura Sphere...that was definitely a Fighting move. Steel was weak to Fighting. I definitely still kept my brain. I looked to Janine.

"I got it. Easy-peasy." I said, before instinctively opening my mouth. If all those abominations were able to use their attacks...wouldn't I be able to do so too? Concentrating, I summoned up a bright blue orb from my mouth and fired it at the lock. The attack hit its target and blew up the lock. Effective though it was, I couldn't help but think about how funny I must have looked doing it.

"There, told you it's easy...by the way, no laughing." I said, keeping my face straight as I pushed open the door.

Undella Town, Unova

We had approached the door that lead into the facility, something I was sure had to be one of their hiding spots. On the outside, the place looked pretty run down and abandoned, but that was just the kind of disguise these psychos needed to be left alone.

I didn't know jack about lock-picking, so I figured having some Pokémon take care of it might be a good idea. The only issue was if anyone or anything might hear a sudden blast hit the door. I figured I could pick one out from the bunch that I had. I mean heck, to Dozer, ripping down a metal door was no harder than ripping paper.

"What the f*ck-..." I heard Theresa sudden exclaim from the van.

I looked at her, and noticed she was changing... again. How the heck Ian and I managed to avoid succumbing to the gas, I wasn't sure, but these two certainly weren't. I couldn't help but grimace when a pair of green, fluffy wings ripped out of her back, replacing that green cape she had from before. Meanwhile, small red and blue triangles were sprinkled on her skin.

I tried not to make a face. Theresa was looking worse and worse every minute. I figured I wasn't going to do the idiot thing and ask her if she was alright after transforming like that. I already knew the answer to that question...

"Think we should try barging in or find another way around?" Janine asked, looking at the door and not even noticing Theresa had changed.

"I got it," Theresa told her. "Easy-peasy."

Janine stepped aside, giving room for Theresa, but only then just noticed what happened to her. While Janine stood there, blinking twice, Theresa used a Aura Sphere attack on the door, blasting it open once the blazing blue orb from her mouth was blasted at the lock, blowing it up into little fragments.

"There, told you it's easy," Theresa told us, pushing open the door, "...by the way, no laughing."

I shrugged, and then just followed her. I wasn't sure what we were going to find in here, but I figured it couldn't be that much worse than what we had already seen.

I had to freaking fake coughs and cover my mouth to stop myself from giggling at Theresa's new appearance. Those Togekiss wings... now those were truly cute. And the Aura Sphere from her mouth! It looked okay when a Pokémon did it, but her!? Totally bizarre. It was like she coughed up a massive explosive spitball!

We headed inside and the plant was just as I thought. It wasn't the cleanest place, but it was definitely still functioning, and the lights were still on, even though it gave the place only a dim amount of light. The linoleum floor was a bit beat up, and the walls could really use a fresh coat of paint, but the place definitely wasn't abandoned. I had a feeling Theresa wanted to find whatever machine or gadget she could that could change her form for her. She looked ridiculous as she did right now, and judging from her concoctions on the laptop program, she wanted to turn herself into some dark, feral beast as soon as possible.

And that reminded me... those Togekiss wings on Theresa's back... those would be fantastic on a Lopunny! Well, not green like that, but obviously they'd be a different color to match with the rest of a Lopunny's form. And hey, a Lopunny would look pretty cute in white. Still wouldn't be fire, but that could be adjusted with something like... a Ninetales, which would take care of that. Now, that was pretty good already, but I liked the idea of making those tails kind of like a Furret's, with some extra plush, and to make the Lopunny's ears come out cute and pointed rather than flat. Then maybe, to complete the look, I could give that a Shedinja halo just to make it more angelic. Hmm, I'd have to try that out to see what it would ultimately look like.

"Take cover, I see someone up ahead," Alex suddenly told the rest of us.

I quickly rushed to the nearest lab door, opened it, and snuck inside. It was pretty much empty and unlit, but it did allow me to get out of the hallway. After taking cover, I took a peek, and saw the guys Alex was talking about. These had to be Neo Genesis' goons. And they didn't look human either. Bigger than human, honestly. I could see three of them. One looked like some hideous, hulking, overly armored red insect that much have gotten his inspiration from a Scizor and a Rhyperior, while the second one, a girl, looked like she picked a bunch of water types like Seaking and Lumineon, covering herself with strange fish fins. Meanwhile, she didn't even have legs, traveling around on a Milotic's snake-like body. Then, the last dude looked like he had combined himself out of WAY too many dark and ghost types. All he seemed to be was this black and purple shadow that had big red eyes, a grin, and always seemed to be melting and recomposing himself. My best guess was a Gengar, Muk, Spiritomb, and probably a few others in there, but that was as far as my imagination could go with that guy.

"Eewww, what the devil did they do to themselves...?" I asked, wondering just how far they had used whatever evolution machine that was here.

"It definitely has to be here," Alex said, whispering from another lab close by. "You sure you still want to use it though? Sure didn't do those three any favors."

"Of course!" I told him, knowing it was better than letting the gas turn us into some random monster. "They... just picked really bad forms."

I mean yeah, even Theresa's crazy wolf forms were better than those. And who the frick picks Muk when deciding to evolve? That moron deserved to come out as a gross puddle of sticky black goo. Still, Alex wasn't too convinced. Probably because the gas hadn't gotten to him yet. Or, I could try to prove to him that I could make a really cool and cute Lopunny form for him. Heck, maybe he'd even like the one I came up with.

"I imagine the evolution thingy is underground, downstairs," I told the others. "It probably makes a lot of noise and it's probably one of those things Neo Genesis wants to keep hidden. Thing is... those three are blocking the way to the elevator. Think we should try to knock them out, or just try to sneak around?"

Oh, I hoped they'd say knock them out. I really wanted to see Jubilee knock the stuffing out of that ooze monster guy.

I scratched my head as I walked away from Black City. I had been there to witness the whole discovery they made and somehow, I still couldn’t believe all this. Something didn’t seem to sit right with this whole thing. How could our enemy be so reckless as to leave behind important stuff like that? I couldn’t help but think it was all a distraction, meant to trick us into following the wrong tracks until it was too late. But hey, maybe I was wrong, maybe they just were stupid. Maybe these were just the ramblings of a paranoid old man. I wouldn’t know.

Either way, I agreed we couldn’t risk it. For now we had no other leads, so we were practically forced to believe all the info was true. So, since most of our crew seemed more interested in the evolution thing back in Undella than stopping another region from becoming like this, I had decided to take it upon myself to see to it that the convoy be stopped. ‘Course, I didn’t really fancy doing that alone. I wanted someone to talk to.

Hence why I was here in Nimbasa again, looking around for the rest of our very spread crew to see if anyone would want to join me. Cadenza and Scherzo were scouting from up above, constantly calling out their names to get anyone in hearing range pay attention. Me? I was a bit too lazy to start shouting, so I was playing my violin as I walked instead. Hoping its melody would attract our members to me.

Ever since I received the radio call it was obvious which destination to go for. Someone else could handle stopping that little convoy, I would be just all over that evolution device in Undella. I mean, wasn’t it just every girl’s dream studying and ****ing up - oh, pardon my language - altering a few Pokémon-darlings for personal benefit? Ahh, maybe I could do something about that Damn Coat’s fur while I was there. Force some obscure third evolution just to see if I could get more fur off of it. The way it was now it would be hardly enough for a jacket, despite its name.

Oh, I was getting all kiddy already. I could feel the tingles~

Especially since, from what I observed up from the back of my little flying Pokémon, I wasn’t the only girl in town. Those two freaks of natures had apparently decided to come check this place out as well. How perfect was this? In case the evolution device was nothing special, I could always have a little fun studying those two~ Oh, but of course I wouldn’t force my medical help on them. Oh no, I’d wait for them to get injured first and then chime in to save the day. Wasn’t I just a doll?

My ride descended and I allowed myself to slide down the Pokémon’s back. I didn’t own any flying types myself, but that had never been a problem for me. There was always a nice guy somewhere nearby, eager to help a lady in trouble. Some would offer their help willingly, some do it after being asked and some… after some minor convincing, but everyone would do it eventually. That’s how all men were. Easy, stupid, but immensely useful when it came down to it. It hadn’t been hard to acquire a ride here.

I tapped the Pokémon’s head with a sole nail as thanks, ignoring the wincing sounds it made. Oh, now wasn’t this one a pansy. I didn’t like pansy Pokémon. Oh well.

I fixed my hair and looked around. My, oh my, we were on a beach. This required an immediate change of attire. Even if… the whole town was a mess. The previous vacation spot seemed more fit for the filming place of a B-rate horror movie right now. There was thrash everywhere! I swore, those who dared **** up a beautiful beach like this deserved a castration with a hot knife, anesthesia be damned.

Just then, something caught my eye further into town. It was Theresa, if I recalled the name, mutating again. She even used a Pokémon attack. That must’ve tired her so much. Poor dear. Luckily there was a doctor in the house now, so everything would be just fine. The trio of her, Alex and Janine disappeared inside an old, beat up building, but I wasn’t going to be left behind. I could wait a bit before I changed my clothes, this was more urgent. I did fix my nails while talking however, worn off nail polish was so annoying.

I was pretty much focusing on my nails as I entered, whistling to myself a beautiful, ominous tune, only to stop about a minute later when I… stepped into something disgusting. Raising my heel I realized it was goo of some sort, emitting a horrible stench. Now where did that-

Just then, I noticed them. Three disgusting freaks standing in front of an old, probably not even functional elevator, looking around as if they were searching for prey. One of those freaks seemed to be the source of this disgusting goo. Ugh. I didn’t see the other members of my team anywhere. They must’ve been hiding. Well, I would not hide. My shoe had been ruined. Things had to die.

“You’re in luck, boys and girls~” I chirped to the freaks as they slowly moved towards me upon having noticed me. “See, you seem to be in so much pain right now. I know I would be if I looked like that.” I paid extra attention to what seemed to be the only female of the group. “I mean, dear, your face. It needs fixing no makeup can help you with. Luckily, I’m offering all three of you a facelift, free of charge!”

I produced two Pokéballs from my belt.

“Of course, since you’re such hopeless cases, there might be some complications. But ah, I’m sure you wouldn’t mind suffering a little in the name of beauty. I know I wouldn't mind making you suffer, at least~”

One of the monsters let out a bellow, and I nodded with a smile.

“That’s what I thought, dear.”

I released my dear duo of Cremator and Defibrillator, brushing hair from my face.

“Cremator, I judge that goo-creature a hopeless case. Go burn up its face. Defibrillator, I think our little fishie needs its heart rate checked. Do me a favor, with that, will you?”

My two Pokémon immediately attacked their targets, leaving be gthe monstrous insect. Hopefully my teammates would pop up and handle it, I hated bugs.

“Now,” I announced as my Pokémon got the first hits in and I walked closer with a few necessary tools in hand. I wouldn't want to miss out on taking these things apart personally. “The operation has begun! Stay still, pray, and try not to **** yourselves. It’s a ***** to clean up.”

As Leo followed the rest of the group out of Nimbassa, he caught sight of another girl being affected by the gas. And by the looks of it, she didn't get as lucky as the Staraptor girl. One faulty mask could've been a coincidence, but two?! That's downright unprofessional. So, he did what everyone else in the group had done, and tossed the gas mask away. He didn't really care about it anyway, blasted thing was uncomfortable.

Then, a radio transmission came in from Janine. Apparently there was a convoy in Castelia City set off to ship samples of this gas to Sinnoh. At that point, Leo turned his radio off. What Neo Genesis had done to his home region was terrible, it hurt enough he wasn't able to do anything about while innocent people and Pokemon were forced to evacuate, or become hideous monsters. He wasn't willing to sit back, and let the same thing happen to another Region. So, he immediately turned around, and went back to Nimbassa, with hopes of heading to Castelia to stop this convoy.

As he ran, he realized he was alone. Most of they're large group had gone their separate ways. Leo really didn't want to have to do this alone, but it didn't seem like their was much choice...

Fortunately, he wouldn't have to do this alone. Shawn the Musharna suddenly stopped in his tracks. "Musharna?" He tilted his head before turning around and going a different way.

Leo went after him. He didn't have to move very fast to catch up with him, Musharna's were not known for their speed. "Shawn? Where are you going?" But not long after, Leo heard what Shawn was after. He heard the sound of music? Well, apparently Pokemon really did have better senses than humans after all.

Following the sounds eventually led Leo and Shawn to a man playing a violin. Leo vaguely remembered seeing him among their group. Leo was relieved to find another person.

Leo walked up to the guy. "Oh good, another person! Hey, I'm sure you got the message too? I was headed off to Castelia City, but I'd really rather not go alone!"

So I hadn’t actually walked for long before I heard my trusty companions let out a piercing cry indicating there was someone nearby. I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself. Trusty old pals, nothing escaped their eyes. I returned back to playing immediately after though, how else could that someone find me? I doubt they’d be too willing to follow two birds they didn’t know the origin of. Could be a trap for all they knew. Music was the better solution; I could guarantee no mutated Pokémon could produce notes this nice.

I slowed down my walk and started to look around. Some of those new Pokémon were eying me curiously from their hiding places. Apparently they thought the melody soothing. I understood them full well, wasn’t anything to calm your nerves like some good music. I would have wanted to close my eyes and just listen to my own melody, but I really couldn’t. No time to get all self-absorbed when I’m waiting for someone.

Just then, another sharp cry from up above reached my ears. Oh, so whoever it was was almost here now. In fact, he should be behind me right about…

I stopped playing.

"Oh good, another person! Hey, I'm sure you got the message too? I was headed off to Castelia City, but I'd really rather not go alone!"

…Now. I nodded up to my Pokémon and turned around with a smile. Behind me stood a pretty young-looking fella, all smiles after finding someone else. No wonder, it sucked to be alone, doubly so if you were in the middle of a frea-infested zone, liable to get infected yourself.

I lowered my violin and gave him a nod. “Well, you’re in luck there, boy. I was just going to head there myself.” I nodded towards my instrument. “Been walking’ 'round trying to find some folks to join me for a while here. Good to see it paid off. I’ve been dying to talk to someone too. Pokémon are fun but they can’t beat someone whose speech you actually understand, yeah?”

I chuckled. “Oh, but pardon me, I get a bit too chatty sometimes. You should see me during teatime. I'm impossible. Anyway...” I offered my free hand and gave another nod. “You probably already saw from the name plate or remember from the briefing, but... Kristofer Riveraid. You can call me Kris, people often do.”

The guy lowered his violin and gave Leo a nod. “Well, you’re in luck there, boy. I was just going to head there myself.” He nodded towards his instrument. He seemed friendly enough. Leo was glad. The last thing he wanted to encounter was a jerk. Jerks were no fun, and made things difficult. “Been walking’ 'round trying to find some folks to join me for a while here. Good to see it paid off. I’ve been dying to talk to someone too. Pokémon are fun but they can’t beat someone whose speech you actually understand, yeah?”

Leo chuckled. "Oh, totally. Nothing beats some actual human companionship."

Shawn seemed to take offense to that, and glared at his trainer. "Musharna..."

Leo patted his head. "Don't worry buddy, I mean no offense." The Pokemon seemed satisfied.

“Oh, but pardon me, I get a bit too chatty sometimes. You should see me during teatime. I'm impossible."

Leo flicked his wrist. "Oh, don't worry about it. People have said the same thing about me."

Anyway...” He offered his free hand and gave another nod. “You probably already saw from the name plate or remember from the briefing, but... Kristofer Riveraid. You can call me Kris, people often do.”

In all honesty, Leo had forgotten about the name tags, and hadn't been paying attention to them. He took Kris' hand, and firmly shook it. "Leonardo Silverstone. My friends call me Leo. I prefer that, actually. It's a lot less formal. So, I suppose we should be heading off? After all, that convoy isn't gonna stand around and wait for us while we get aquianted."

Janine had discovered three freaks that had obviously used the evolution process machine, wherever that thing was now. I figured now might be a good time to attack them with my Pokémon, and probably use the M249 SAW machine gun. And then, I heard a familiar voice, although I hadn't expected it at all.

"You're in luck, boys and girls!" Dr. Valentine's voice chimed in to the three freaks. "See, you seem to be in so much pain right now. I know I would be if I looked like that," she said, looking to the aquatic girl. "I mean, dear, your face. It needs fixing no makeup can help you with. Luckily, I’m offering all three of you a facelift, free of charge!"

"Her!?" Janine gasped as she stepped back, totally shocked. "Why her!? Why the hell did she have to come along!?"

Still, Dr. Valentine whipped out two Pokéballs.

"Of course, since you're such hopeless cases," She told them with a sinister grin, "there might be some complications. But ah, I’m sure you wouldn’t mind suffering a little in the name of beauty. I know I wouldn't mind making you suffer, at least~"

And out came her Electivire and her Darmanitan. She then ordered them to attack, striking the walking blob with a fire attack while the fish mermaid girl got electrocuted to death. That left the insect freak, and seeing how he was about to retaliate against Dr. Valentine with his mandible like claws, I figured now would be a good time to act. I pointed the M249 at him and pulled the trigger.

And man, this thing was loud, blasting fire and mayhem down the hall as each bullet struck him and started cracking apart his metal chassis. It was only stunning him for the most part, so I quickly released Paladin the Arcanine while he was trying to recover from the shock, and then ordered Paladin to attack with a Flamethrower. I swore, the way that thing screamed, it was hard to imagine it was actually once a human. All that was left was a burning husk of an insect, quickly crumbling apart.

"Great, now can we get out of here before she notices us!?" Janine begged. "I swear, she'd stick electrodes and probes all over our body and send a hundred grand volts into them just to see what happens."

Chances were it was too late for that, but even though I hadn't been affected by the gas yet, Dr. Valentine did seem pretty insane. It was kind of funny actually. Still not something to panic over, though.

Janine Price
Staraptor Pokémorph
Neo Genesis Evolution Plant, Undella Town, Unova

Why her? Why now? Whatever, I just had to act natural and not freak out. She seemed to be sadistic enough to enjoy it when people panicked because of her.

Stairs... I could take the stairs instead of the elevator. They were closer by to us, I could see the door that lead to the stairwell not too far from here. We just had to make a run for it and hope it would take us to the chamber faster. Thanks to her, I didn't have a whole lot of time to think about forms or whatnot. To me, the Lopunny one was perfect. I didn't really talk it over with Alex, but... ah, whatever, I was sure he'd like it too. Hopefully.

"Let's head to the stairs," I told the others, trying to keep it low. "There might be more around the elevators, so we'd better take the safe route!"

Nah, I was just trying to avoid Valentine. I quickly headed for the door, pushed it open, and headed down. It was pretty dark in that concrete stairwell, but I just shrugged it off. As long as nothing else was here, it didn't bother me to exercise a bit more just to avoid being poked and probed at by that mad scientist woman. I swore, between Neo Genesis and her, there wasn't much difference.

Level B1 was just storage as I had seen from the door plaque, but B2 seemed to be the hot spot. "Evolution Process Center" seemed as good as gold here. I pushed my way through the door, and stepped in, followed by Alex right after me. Inside, the rooms were much bigger, and there were was a lot of metal around as well, covering the walls and floor while the ceiling had plenty of exposed pipes and wires.

"You really don't like that Valentine, don't you?" He asked, laughing about it.

"Hey, do you?" I asked him seriously. "She's a nutcase! Anyway, let's find this thing and get ourselves changed so we don't need to worry about that stupid gas anymore."

My guess was that it had to be pretty big. After going through another set of metal double doors, we came across the chamber, which was huge. The main room was as big as a high school gymnasium, with a huge cylindrical chamber in the middle. Sure smelled strange in there though.

Now then... we had to find someone who knew how this thing worked, and get them to fess up how it did the job. Someone here had to have known.

Swadloon-Togekiss Chimera
Neo Genesis Evolution Plant , Undella Town, Unova

As we got in, Alex warned us that we had company. As we moved forward, three Chimeras faced us. For probably being forms created by the evolution machine, they were pretty hideous, just as bad as I was. Before I could send out my Pokemon however, a familiar voice greeted us. The doctor.

"You're in luck, boys and girls! See, you seem to be in so much pain right now. I know I would be if I looked like that. "I mean, dear, your face. It needs fixing no makeup can help you with. Luckily, I’m offering all three of you a facelift, free of charge!" Her voice rang, causing me to cast Janine a look that implied "I told you". Damn, just damn.

Dr. Valentine then finished off the blob-like Chimera and the serpentine one, leaving Alex to finish off the insect-like one. She was afraid of insects, huh? Maybe she won't touch me for now. Janine however, panicked.

"Great, now can we get out of here before she notices us!?" She begged. I looked back at what Dr. Valentine was doing, and to be honest, while I had a good tolerance for gore and blood, this was just...weird. I did not want to be dissected without anesthesia and wide awake...much less already wounded. Janine had a point. I nodded then followed them to a dark, narrow stairwell in order to avoid anymore unfortunate encounters.

"You really don't like that Valentine, don't you?" Alex asked, laughing. Janine defended herself quickly.

"Well, wouldn't you find any damn doctor who just...does operations out of nowhere, without an operating room and anesthesia...a teeny bit out of it?" I replied as we reached the B2 floor, going through the door that said "Evolution Process Center". There was nother set of double doors before we reached the actual room, which was huge. Nobody was here, and I did not know **** about operating the damn machine. I looked at it properly, trying to decipher it. Looked too complicated however. I faced my comrades.

"Hmm...we definitely need someone from here...but we can't leave the room unattended either, if in case anyone or anything comes rushing in. I'm going to go out an look for someone...one of you many have to come with me while the other stays here. That way, we could deal with threats both in this room and outside...whatever or whoever they are..." I suggested.

I figured I probably wasn't seeing things from their eyes.

"Well, wouldn't you find any damn doctor who just...does operations out of nowhere, without an operating room and anesthesia...a teeny bit out of it?" Theresa asked me.

I was beginning to think maybe the only reason why I wasn't so afraid of Dr. Valentine like Theresa and Janine were was only because I was still human. That woman really was insane, and I kind of figured just staying far away from her was the sanest choice.

"Yeah, you're right," I told her, figuring she probably should be locked up in a funny farm where she couldn't get within a thousand feet of anything sharp to cut up something with. "Better she's up there working on those psychos than following us around."

Meanwhile, the Evolution Process Center was huge, coupled with a giant cylinder chamber in the middle where people probably walked in and came out a whole lot less human looking. Even when it wasn't being used, the thing was glowing in places and had wires and tubes coming and going everywhere like a giant black bowl of spaghetti. My guess was the thing had to be at least fifty feet tall. Meanwhile, computers, consoles, generators, and a bunch of other terminals were everywhere.

"Hmm.. we definitely need someone from here... but we can't leave the room unattended either, if in case anyone or anything comes rushing in," Theresa told us. "I'm going to go out and look for someone... one of you may have to come with me while the other stays here. That way, we could deal with threats both in this room and outside... whatever or whoever they are..."

"I'll come with ya," I told her, figuring Janine was probably better with this tech stuff. "Janine, you stay here and learn what you can about this thing. Theresa and I will look for someone that may know how to work this thing."

"Works for me," Janine replied, already checking out some of the consoles. "I'll give you a holler if something happens."

I figured Janine was probably our best chance at getting something out of this thing. I still was pretty unsure about this whole plan myself, but I figured one infection was all it would take to convince me otherwise. Those three Chimeras were freakishly ugly, and I hated the thought of being just like one of them. But if Theresa and Janine were convinced the thing could make respectable Chimera forms, I dunno, maybe it was really the only saving grace against the gas.

Checking the outside hall, I looked around, and didn't see anyone at first. After that, I turned to Theresa.

"Well, you'd better lead the way," I told her, figuring that would be a better idea. "Me being a human looks awfully suspicious if I were to get seen, but you... they wouldn't be as surprised. No offense."

I figured not using the giant M249 SAW might be a good idea also, since any flick of gunfire would probably draw attention. Definitely needed to be more subtle.

While Theresa and Alex headed out, I checked out this evolution chamber thing and all its computers. Definitely pretty complicated, and it was tricky to find out how it was all organized. These Neo Genesis guys... they were definitely a league above, and I really didn't have time for a user manual here. Plus, I was getting really impatient. I wanted to see this baby in action!

After plugging away at the computers for a bit, I figured out the thing was just in a standby phase, awaiting a series of codes. Well, at least I didn't need to worry about how this thing turned on and off. I really was hoping that this thing wouldn't need a crew of like twenty people just to get it to work. These Neo Genesis guys sure wouldn't do that for us.

The input screen was... a little trippy. Finding my way around the software was a little loopy, but I just needed to get the hang of it. I eventually found the area where a user designed their Chimera form, either on the console itself or via a bunch of crazy codes that was generated from a remote terminal. As I figured out, I could use my laptop to design the Chimera form I wanted, which in turn would generate codes. As I realized, I was only a few codes away from becoming the cutest Chimera ever! Well, actually, it was easy to see I was going to need at least a second person to start this thing up while I was in the chamber.

As far as entering the chamber, I found the giant door to it, but I had no clue how to get the thing open. Right now it was locked and some stupid mechanism was holding it back from opening. Probably because nothing was ready and there weren't any codes. Seemed like they didn't want to open the door unless they had to. Radiation maybe? Something crazy, I'll bet.

Well, I figured I could at least get those codes ready and see if that was what was needed to unlock the door. I took out my laptop, booted it up, and got that crazy program open. So... time to design my future self!

So, I used Lopunny as the main base, which is the Pokémon I'd end up looking the most like. Definitely no complaint about that! Then, I designed it with a Togekiss in mind, giving it a nice white color, some blue and red triangular speckles, and two really cute wings. I mean heck, that alone looked really cool and cute. But why stop there? I also decided to follow through with the plan to get some firepower in there as well, combining it with a Ninetales to ensure I could at least muster a decent Flamethrower when I got into this. And, just for good measure, I combined that with a Furret, making the nine tails extra fluffier with red and blue rings around them, and to make the two really big bunny ears pointed rather than puffy. And then, I figured putting in Cinccino for the extra fluff and fur would look good. Aww, now that looked awesome! Why the heck would those three freaks upstairs go for those ugly freak forms when they could have looked like this!? Ah well, their loss, and I guess it serves them right for being stupid. Lastly, I figured it would be cool to give the form a Shedninja halo. Make it look all angelic and stuff. Certainly didn't need the rest of that ugly bug thing, though. In the end, I just gasped at the final result. This... looked really, really cool.

I knew it had to be evolved in order to prevent further mutation from the gas, which got me wondering. What would I look like in this after evolution? How much cuter and cooler could it possibly get? It definitely was exciting to think about. As I fiddled with the program, there was a way to see the projected outcome of evolution. I tried it, and the result... was just mesmerizing. Much longer ears, lots of extra fur and fluff on the arms, legs, chest, back, and head, and it actually had six wings instead of just two. And it had a lot more tails as well, along with a bigger and brighter halo. Oh, that looked so cool and super cute!

Well, the form I made did generate some codes. Some really long ones, as I figured there were essentially endless numbers of combinations a person could decide to turn themselves into. So this was a bit like choosing paint colors... like... several times over. Transferring the codes from the laptop to the console wasn't too hard. Just copy everything to a USB drive and plug it right in. The codes were carried over just fine, and the ultra dangerously cute Lopunny form was good to go. I just couldn't take my eyes off of it. It was so cute to even look at!

But, the codes alone didn't open the door. Once entered, I had to input an authorization password and a biometric eye scan. Frick. I was hoping I wouldn't have to get that done. And in order to hack the machine and bypass these annoying steps, I would have to leave the main input screen to muddle around with administration settings, let it scan my eye, get that saved, and muck around with a whole bunch of other stupid things that would gobble up time. And if I screwed up, I could totally ruin the chance to become this super cute Chimera form! Nah, I just had to be patient and wait for Alex and Theresa to find some peep who knew the authorization passwords and the final stages of getting this thing through. But, if they didn't... ugh, I could work around it, but it was be a risky hassle.

Besides, I couldn't be at the console to hit the "Transform and let it rip" button and be in the chamber itself at the same time anyway.

"I'll come with ya. Janine, you stay here and learn what you can about this thing. Theresa and I will look for someone that may know how to work this thing." Alex volunteered, to which I nodded. Alex may be a bit more vulnerable than Janine was, but he was far more practical and less likely to panic or flare up in unfortunate run-ins. Whatever this was, we were definitely looking for said unfortunate run-in. Alex stuck his head out of the door and looked out, before assuring me that the coast was clear.

"Well, you'd better lead the way. Me being a human looks awfully suspicious if I were to get seen, but you... they wouldn't be as surprised. No offense." He said, to which I shook my head and found myself chuckling a bit.

"And why should I take offense? Even I find this form pretty hideous and impractical to say the least, save for the wings! Well, at least with no pride comes no shame. Don't worry, I'll catch anyone with my Aura Sphere before they try to do anything stupid to any of us." I laughed, as I led him down the right-side corridor.

"Well, you mentioned your theory that there will be more Chimeras near the elevators. I guess it doesn't hurt to check the nearest one. Anyway, if in case we're wrong, we can always go up and down to check...should be pretty quick." I said as I scanned the walls, before spotting a floor map covered in glass, nailed to the left wall at the end of the corridor. I turned to face Alex and pointed at it.

"There's the floor map. We'll find the elevator quickly this way." I told him before I flew forward, reaching the map. As Alex followed behind me, I took my time in studying the map. I located the evolution plant pretty easily. Near it were a few more computer and research rooms, as well as a break room, presumably for meals. After a while, I located the elevator. It seemed to be a pretty spacious one, based on the scale size, and it was about four corridors from here. Using my finger, I traced the path from where we were, showing it to Alex. At the split right where this corridor ended, we had to turn left, then go halfway down the next before seeing another hall to the right, which we had to proceed to. After that, we had to turn right again at the end and finally, go left to reach the hall where the elevators were.

"Stay behind me, I don't know what the hell lurks down here, so we better stick together." I told him as I led him to the left. So far, nothing crazy. I flew at a moderate pace, allowing Alex to keep up without having to run. Footfalls could attract attention and if we needed to get ahold of someone, we did not want them to surprise us and make the first move. As I was about to turn the next corner, I heard some voices.

"Intruders, you say? How did they get in?" I heard one voice, evidently masculine, ask, to which another one answered.

"Right here, sir. The camera recorded it." Another voice replied, also masculine but less firm. The swinging and closing of a door followed. As I heard it, I looked to Alex and put a finger to my lips, signaling him to lower his voice to a whisper.

"Surveillance room. We're ****ing dead meat if we don't act fast. We better go there and destroy all the damn screens. Whoever I think is the operator would surely be too stupid to know how to operate the machine...but the other voice, maybe he's the hostage we need." I murmured, before flying up again and spreading my wings to their widest. I had to flap as little as possible, glide instead of actually fly. Motioning for Alex to follow me, I turned the corner and continued on down the next hall, until I spotted a slightly-open door. I waited for Alex to catch up, looking at the door then back at him. Once he was close enough, I formed another Aura Sphere in my mouth, before bursting through the door and firing it at one of the screens.

Inside were two Chimeras, both of them pretty hideous but one of them much less so than the other. The one sitting down was an ugly, slimy combination of Swampert, Politoed and Jellicent, with a sickly neon-green color, orange fins jutting out of its cheeks and tentacles where his limbs were supposed to be. The other one was less horrible, an imposing furry creature consisting of a fusion of Entei, Flareon and Salamence, the latter evident in the wings on his back.

"She's one of them!" The sea monster exclaimed, to which just glared and concentrated on him. Golden beams started pulsing and emanating from my body as I launched an Extrasensory attack at the Chimera, silencing him for now.

Still Human

Right now, I didn't even want to imagine what Dr. Valentine was doing to those two Chimeras. Truthfully, I'd hope they'd just keep her busy with that.

"And why should I take offense?" Theresa asked me, after I referred to her Chimera form. "Even I find this form pretty hideous and impractical to say the least, save for the wings! Well, at least with no pride comes no shame. Don't worry, I'll catch anyone with my Aura Sphere before they try to do anything stupid to any of us."

Well, that was a relief. Still, we needed one of them alive, and at least know enough about the evolution chamber. I wasn't sure how far Janine could get on her own, but still, this would get us out of here sooner.

"Well, you mentioned your theory that there will be more Chimeras near the elevators," Theresa told me as I used whatever cover I could get as we traveled down the halls. "I guess it doesn't hurt to check the nearest one. Anyway, if in case we're wrong, we can always go up and down to check...should be pretty quick."

"I gotcha," I told her, flashing a quick smile and a nod.

We just needed one, after all. I figured it might take a bit to subdue them, but hey, I was ready for anything. Then, Theresa spotted a floor map, and pointed at it.

"There's the floor map," Theresa told me. "We'll find the elevator quickly this way."

She flew over to it and I ran over to where she was, checking out the whole layout of the facility. Man, people could get lost in here without this. She found the evolution plant pretty quickly, as well as the break room, and all the other places in this joint. And then, the elevator. The really big one, which must have been used by the really big Chimeras. Theresa outlined the path, and shortly after, I followed her throughout the hallways.

"Stay behind me, I don't know what the hell lurks down here, so we better stick together," She told me, leading us to the left.

Meanwhile, I kept on close watch. I didn't really see anyone, thankfully. Figured it was probably mostly off-hours, but there were still sounds coming down from the halls. Theresa overheard something, but I couldn't quite make out the words. She gave me the sign to keep quiet, and I gave a quick nod.

"Surveillance room," She whispered. "We're ****ing dead meat if we don't act fast. We better go there and destroy all the damn screens. Whoever I think is the operator would surely be too stupid to know how to operate the machine...but the other voice, maybe he's the hostage we need."

Damn, I was really hoping this wouldn't set off an alarm. If there was one, they might just be seconds within turning it on, and who knows what kind of security lockdown might happen. Theresa shot on ahead, gliding right into the security room while I followed as closely behind as I could, though she was faster than I was. Once I barged in, Theresa unleashed an Aura Sphere attack at one of the screens, while I pulled out the MP5K and quickly screwed in the silencer. While she attacked the screens, I followed her lead, tearing bullet holes into the others.

Then, I saw the two Chimeras. The one in the seat was a hideous Swampert, Politoed, and Jellicent Chimera, while the other was a furry Chimera of Entei and Flareon with a Salamence's wings.

"She's one of them!" The operator shouted.

Theresa, quickly nailed him with a Extrasensory attack, while I whipped out the M249 SAW and pointed it at the furry one. Problem for him was, it was easier and quicker for me to pull the trigger than it was for him to cough up fire to launch in our face. He looked like he had thought about attacking us, but he lost that chance.

"Don't make a move," I told him, keeping the heavy machine gun pointed at him. "We're not alone, and trust me, you don't want to see what some other members of our team are capable of."

"You..." He growled, looking at us aggressively. "What do you want?"

"Access to the evolution chamber," I told him, keeping the M249 affixed on his head. "Help us access it, and we'll let you go. But, if you're a pain in the *** about it, well, I'll just gun you down and find someone else a little more cooperative."

He laughed, and then I smashed his furry, lion face with the butt of the machine gun, just to get the machine across. Then, I kicked him in the chest, and knocked the wind out of him. When he finally came to, he sat, up, and coughed.

"Damn... damn it, fine, I'll give you what you want," He muttered, getting up. "Not like it's much of a request anyway. The revolution has already begun.

We led him back to the evolution chamber, making sure none of his friends would come along. The whole while, I kept the M249 pointed at him.

I had been chewing and blowing bubble gum, waiting for Alex and Theresa to show up again. I was so tempted to hack the administrator account, but if I failed and there was a lockout, it would be that much more of a pain to get it up and going again. Thankfully, it didn't take them long until they both showed up with a furry guy, obvious Entei and Flareon dude with Salamence wings. He looked pissed and it looked like Alex and Theresa had to knock a few heads, including his, along the way.

"Ah, great to see ya," I told him with a wink. "Been waiting. Hey, you, Furface. Authorization codes and eye scan would be greatly appreciated, you know."

"The name's Victor," He spat, not liking the nickname I gave him. "And who are you?"

"Janine, the one and only," I told him, winking with a smile. "And that's Alex and Theresa. Now then, I got most of this baby up and running, but these stupid codes are blocking me. That's where you come in."

He just shrugged, and did what he was told. He didn't even seemed that bummed out about it, and was even smiling. He put in the code as "ARK9850" and then scanned his eye into the scanner. Moments later, the lock on the chamber door had unlatched, and all that was left was to swing it open, and let the magic happen.

"This... Lopunny one is for you?" He asked with a dubious look in his eyes after looking at the screen and then back at me.

"Yep, sure is!" I told him, proud of that super cute bunny form I created. "Alex, you press the start button, I'm hopping in."

"Alright," He replied, motioning for Victor to step aside.

I put my gear aside by the chamber door, and then swing the chamber door open. It was rather weird inside, with black, tiled walls and a floor that looked like the back of a music CD. I just shrugged and stepped inside, and shut the door behind me. Inside, the chamber was really pretty big. I stepped toward the center and just couldn't wait to see how this would turn out. Sure, the Staraptor form was cool, but this would be so many times better.

And then, the door locked behind me. I couldn't help but smile, and then soon, the room lit up and I was blinded for a moment. Suddenly, I felt all kinds of crazy changes. My feathers had been replaced by white fur, and my feathered crest was replaced with the hair of a Ninetales. Two red and blue stripped bunny ears had grown out of the top of my head, and then bent down and continued on to about my waistline. Then, I grew nine incredible, bushy fox tails with red and blue rings around them, followed by two giant Togekiss wings on my back, along with the extra Cinccino fluff. I loved it! I couldn't help but admire every inch of this new body, but then, the next step happened. Evolution.

I then started glowing, and then just grew to be fifteen feet all, more than double my original size. My two feet had grown to be two huge rabbit feet, while my hands were now two paws. Then, my two giant rabbit ears had grown bigger and longer, just barely missing the floor. Along with them came four others, not as big as the other two, but were just about the same length in scale as a standard Lopunny's, reaching around my waistline. Then, I grew four extra giant wings, twelve more tails, and had now grown longer hair and a bigger, brighter halo. I felt so soft, plush, and adorable! They soon unlocked the door, and I was thrilled to show Alex and Theresa my new form! And best of all, I didn't need to worry about that stupid gas any longer!

"Wow... just wow!" I shouted in glee, coming out of the chamber. "Look at this, it's AWESOME! I feel so cute and plushy! I came up with a cool name for it too! Seraphare!"

"You're welcome..." Victor replied sarcastically, rolling his eyes.

"It's..." Alex said, speechless and surprised.

It felt a bit awkward to be looking down on everything and everyone from this high up now, but ah, whatever. I couldn't help but smile cutely, just totally adoring how I look and felt. Sure, I figured I might have looked a little silly being so giddy like this, but this was just an awesome feeling! The others didn't seem so convinced, but pah, whatever!

"So, who's up next?" Victor shrugged, just wanting to get this over with.

"She can go," Alex replied, glancing to Theresa. "I'm still deciding."

"Aww, Alex, you definitely should go for this!" I urged him on, figuring while Theresa werewolfed herself, I could convince Alex to go for this same super cute bunny form. "It's really soft and comfortable. You'll look great in it, I'm sure!"

Well, he was thinking it over. I was really wondering what he was going to ultimately decide on. It was definitely exciting!

Theresa Del Monico
Swadloon/Togekiss Chimera
Neo Genesis Evolution Plant B2 , Undella Town, Unova

We got who we needed, namely, the furry Fire-type Chimera. Alex made short work of him and he ended up relenting. Weak, just like all those peeps back in Lacunosa. We dragged him to the evolution chamber, where Janine was waiting for us.

"Ah, great to see ya. Been waiting. Hey, you, Furface. Authorization codes and eye scan would be greatly appreciated, you know." Janine greeted the Chimera we dragged in.

"The name's Victor. And who are you?" The Chimera replied disdainfully, to which Janine seemed unfazed by as she introduced him to me and Alex. Victor entered a password and was granted access to the chamber. He took a look at the screen, which prompted me to do the same.

Arceus, the form Janine came up with was hideous. It was snowy white and consisted of a mash-up of Lopunny, Cinccino, Ninetales, Togekiss and Shedinja. Wait, Togekiss? I looked at my own wings as I thought. Was she mocking me? The form featured long Lopunny ears striped with red and blue, nine furry tails ringed with red and blue, as well as a Togekiss' wings. I shook my head in disbelief. That was what she was going for? It was bright white and conspicuous!

Apparently it was. As Janine stepped out of the evolution chamber when the process was over, I couldn't get over how strange she looked. Now fifteen feet tall, she looked like an oversized white Lopunny with twenty-freaking-one tails. If I was going to be that tall when I evolved...

"So, who's up next?" Victor asked, to which Alex allowed me to go before him.

"Aww, Alex, you definitely should go for this! It's really soft and comfortable. You'll look great in it, I'm sure!" Janine whined. I sighed as I stood in front of the screen, remembering the two forms I chose and deciding to go with a combination of sorts. Before I could finish, I looked back at Alex and shook my head slightly.

"Alex, a white form is not exactly the most efficient thing when getting around. Just...please be sensible in terms of color, whatever you choose. We can't have anyone getting caught or shot easily." I told him, before inputting my final combination. The form I preferred had the body shape and head of a Lucario, with its distinctive "mask" and four dangling appendages. A silver spike juts out from behind each of the hands. Its body coloring was now the black of a Houndoom, with its head and body fur being completely black, and the "mask" on her face being a vivid crimson color, similar in shade as parts of a Zoroark, though it still retains the "mask" shape typical of a Lucario. In the middle of the form's chest is a mass of thick, black fur like a Zoroark's, a Houndoom's silver skull right in the middle of the fur mass. A Houndoom's silver shackles encircle the wrists and ankles, as well as around the shoulders. While a normal Lucario's four appendages are black, these ones are instead, white, with a slightly translucent, wispy quality to them, like a Darkai's wisp. Its tail, instead of looking like a Lucario's, looked just like a Zoroark's mane, long, red and bushy with black on the edges. The form's upper thighs, while still reminiscent of a Lucario's "shorts", have taken on a slimmer, less bulky quality with ragged, ripped-looking edges like the bottom of a Darkrai, and just as the rest of the body, completely black. The form's eyes were a vivid aqua, like a Zoroark's in color. Finally, two large Flygon's wings were on its back, colored black with red edges. I gave it one look and smiled.

"This one is mine." I told Victor, who gave it one look and raised an eyebrow.

"Are you sure? That form is a..." Victor started to protest. I gave him a glare as he did, before cutting him off.

"Is what? I think it's just perfect." I interrupted, before stepping into the chamber. Shortly after the doors close, the machine started up and I felt myself changing form. Bye-bye weirdness. Something good at last after my two effin' strokes of bad luck. After a while, I looked down at myself and saw that I had changed into the form I just created for myself. I smiled as I looked down at my black fur, my bushy red tail. It was beautiful.

The process was far from over, however. Soon, I started glowing and felt myself growing, up from six feet to about thirteen feet tall. The four wispy appendages on my head deepened in color from white to a light smoky gray, another pair of Flygon's wings sprouted out of my back, now giving me four wings. The spikes, which at first only jutted out from the back of my hands, now appeared down the length of my arms, a single line on each arm, as well as around all my shackles, giving them the appearance of spiked metal bands. My hands and feet all turned into canine paws and sprouted sinister, silver claws. I swished my longer and bushier tail, which I saw was now streaked with more black in the center. The skull pendant in the middle of my chest now had glowing red eyes, and as I looked at my faint reflection on the glass of the chamber, I noticed that my eyes weren't the bright aqua of a Zoroark's anymore, but the icier, piercing aqua of a Darkrai's.

As I walked out of the chamber when the process was over, I looked at Alex, then at Janine. Somehow, I wished that he wouldn't put up with becoming something like that...Seraphare as she called it. I ended up a couple of feet smaller than Janine, but I guessed that I was probably the faster Chimera and thus, had to be smaller.

"Lovely, isn't it? I'll call it....Roguewolf." I asked Victor, smiling with my new sharp fangs, to which he slowly nodded. A strange look was plastered on his face, but I decided not to mind it. It's his fault he probably had awful taste. I looked to Alex and nodded at him.

"I guess it's your turn now. Have you decided?" I asked him as Victor was waiting, the machine ready.

Alex Waters
Still Human
Neo Genesis Evolution Plant B2 , Undella Town, Unova

Theresa and I were both shocked when Janine stepped out, once human, then a Starraptor Pokémorph, now... a giant, white, fluffy bunny with six wings and a heck of a lot of wings and tails she dubbed "Seraphare." I kind of figured this kind of thing was irreversible, so I was a bit glad she was so happy with it. Right now, Janine could tell anyone she'd been a giant white bunny her whole life and there was plenty of room to believe her. Definitely didn't look like she was ever once human in the slightest.

And she tried to convince me to go for the same thing. While I could admit it looked better than what a lot of these Neo Genesis chumps could pull out, it still wasn't my thing. Meanwhile, Theresa just blinked at Janine, really thinking her sanity had been lost quite some time ago.

"Alex, a white form is not exactly the most efficient thing when getting around," Theresa told me, discouraging going for anything white. "Just... please, be sensible in terms of color, whatever you choose. We can't have anyone getting caught or shot easily."

Half of me wasn't so crazy about this whole idea in the first place, but eh, I wasn't the kind to wimp out when everyone else was doing it. And I wasn't crazy about letting the gas eventually turn me inside out. So, Theresa inputted her own combination of a Lucario, Houndoom, Zoroark, Darkrai, and Flygon, turning herself into a giant, winged wolf that looked like the herald of the apocalypse. Actually, I figured it was pretty cool with the Flygon wings, the Houndoom skull, and the nightmare color scheme. I could tell, she liked blending in with the darkness and wanted to become something that clearly said "don't be stupid enough to anger me." When she had fully transformed, she called herself "Roguewolf," and like Janine, didn't look like she was ever human. I just looked up at her and was just glad she was on my side. Those canines... looked vicious as hell! And those icy, aqua-colored eyes looked like they could stare right into peoples' souls.

"Lovely, isn't it?" Theresa asked the rest of us, admiring her new wolf form as she flashed her new fangs. "I'll call it... Roguewolf."

"Ech," Janine winced, hating Theresa's tastes. "Good grief, Theresa, you've probably given even all the unborn children nightmares already. Do me a favor and just... roll over and play dead."

Victor just shrugged and continued to give in his part of the deal. He reminded me of a tattoo artist, just giving people what they wanted regardless of how permanent it was and how stupid he personally thought it was. Then, Theresa turned to me, looking interested.

"I guess it's your turn now," She told me, looking interested as I caught another sight of those fangs of hers. "Have you decided?"

"Hmm," I told her, thinking it over. "Just give me a minute here."

"Can't wait to see this," Victor replied sarcastically with an unenthusiastic sigh.

I kept quiet as I took Janine's laptop and played around with that preview program. Meanwhile, Janine kept smiling and tried to make herself look cute and adorable to try and convince me to go for the same thing. She looked a bit too fluffy and cute, though. Meanwhile, I was drawing a total blank as to what to get started with. I figured I might as well start with what Janine had as a base just to get started and work around with it.

The Lopunny base was actually decent, I'd give her that. It kept Janine bipedal even after evolution and I kind of wanted that also. I wasn't crazy about having to run on all fours while having to use my mouth to carry stuff around. However, looking at Janine's Seraphare form... this Togekiss stuff... that could go out the window. I figured I didn't need the Shedinja halo or the ridiculous Cinccino fur either. Those, to me, were just meaningless extras.

Lopunny, I felt, could look cool in black. I went through the list of dark Pokémon and combining Lopunny with Umbreon actually did look decently badass. Even after I scrapped the Togekiss, Shedninja, and Cinccino stuff, I hadn't even thought to remove the nine Furret-sized and colored Ninetales tails yet and actually, I kind of liked the look of that, seeing each of those nine black tails now wrapped with glowing rings in Umbreon style. Ultimately, I decided to keep those. So, badass black rabbit with glowing Umbreon marks and nine tails. Still needed wings, so I figured putting in a Honchkrow's black feather wings would work nicely. Here, the wings ended up as black with glowing yellow markings instead of maroon down feathers and black flight feathers. Lastly, I took a look at Theresa and that Zoroark mane was just kickass. So, I added that in as well, giving the form a long mane of tied hair like a Zoroark, long, thick, and black with glowing yellow highlights. Ultimately, it made for a mix of Lopunny, Umbreon, Furret, Ninetales, Honchkrow, and Zoroark. Truthfully, both Janine and Theresa kind of inspired this, so I couldn't see how either of them could complain.

So, I handed the laptop and the generated codes to Victor, who looked at it and yet again didn't really understand the logic behind our choices.

"You people..." Victor scoffed, shaking his head in disbelief. "Well, it's your body. Can't say it's the worst thing I've ever seen, but... whatever."

I shrugged, took off my gear, and headed into the chamber. Once inside, the whole thing started up again, and it sure didn't take long for it to take action. Quickly, I was coated with black fur and glowing yellow Umbreon markings, which looked decent. Then, I got the long, pointed bunny ears of a Lopunny, which with a glowing stripe down the lower half, still looked cool and not ridiculous. Then, from my back sprouted two black feathered wings with the glowing yellow markings, and shortly after, those bushy nine tails, each with four rings of glowing yellow. And then, the long Zoroark mane grew from my head, covering my back while the ponytail part just barely touched the ground. Definitely invoked a strange, new feeling that may have felt weird at first, but quickly grew on me.

And then, the evolution process. I climbed in height to roughly about the same size as Janine, and felt the main portion of my body definitely become much more distinctly like a Lopunny, with big rabbit feet, paws, and incredibly long rabbit ears that pointed upward about four feet before bending down toward the ground, with the tips nearly touching the floor. And like her, two other smaller rabbit ears grew out from the same spot on my head and lay along both sides of those, only they were about half the length. It made two rabbit ears look like six in total. Then, like her, nine tails quickly grew into twenty-one tails, and my two wings grew to be pretty massive in size. Then, the Zoroark mane I had also increased in size, having to divide into two parts as it hit the area were the twenty-one tails came out of my rear, essentially becoming like two Zoroark manes merging into one. Still, both sides were long and pretty big, enough to the point where even the ponytails of both sides dragged along the ground. The Umbreon markings had also changed. The shape of a sharp, crescent moon was now on my forehead, while the other marks that were once rings turned into rings with spikes shooting out from the middle, creating a sunburst-like effect.

Stepping out, I figured it would take time to get used to this, but in truth, I liked it. Felt weird having giant ears, tails, wings, and hair while standing a huge fifteen feet tall, but given time, it would probably feel pretty natural.

"Just peachy," Victor scoffed, not surprised at the result. "All three of you look ridiculous. Now, if you're done wasting my time, I've got work to do."

And he headed out of there, just like that. Definitely not the warmest guy I've ever met.

Seraphare
Neo Genesis Evolution Plant B2, Undella Town, Unova

Theresa had turned herself into a wolfy, doggy mess. Ugh, I couldn't believe I'd have to be traveling around with this giant, demonic, flea bag, good for nothing mutt from now on. Pft, probably couldn't even play fetch with a stick without ripping the thing to shreds with her giant, blood-sucking fangs of doom and gloom. I kept imagining her with a giant doggy cone and it was hilarious! I'd just point and laugh and keep on calling it the cone of shame. Plus, ew, it made me wonder. Now that Theresa was a giant, flea-bitten mutt like that, was she going to pee on everything and sniff the butts of others? Puke.

And Alex... wow! Now, he hadn't totally jumped on the idea of becoming a Seraphare, but I definitely saw he modified it. Okay, so he threw out the whole Togekiss color and wing style, along with the Shedninja halo and the Cinccino fur, which... you know, still would have looked cute on him, but I wasn't bummed out over the fact he scrapped those. So, he added in some Umbreon, Honchkrow, and Zoroark instead, which turned him into a black, multi fox-tailed winged bunny instead, but to me, it was still super cute and super cool!

I couldn't help but run up to him and hug him tightly. He was so soft! Aww, we were the perfect couple for each other. Definite Yin and Yang, or whatever that whole thing was.

"Alright, alright," He told me, backing off with an embarrassed smile. "Man, Janine. What's gotten into you?"

"I think... I think I'm in love!" I told him, totally thinking that for real. "Yes! But... hey, what is your new Pokémon name anyway?"

"Hmm," He replied, thinking it over. "I like the idea of mashing 'bunny' and 'ninja' as one. 'Bunninja' has a nice ring to it."

Oh, it definitely did! Still, seeing this place... I just wanted to get out of here and head to somewhere... more romantic. Oh man, if Alex asked me right then and there to marry him, I would so do that! As for Theresa... whatever. She was better when I pretended she wasn't there.

"Love it!" I told him, kissing Alex on the cheek. "Aww Alex, you're so awesome."

He looked a little surprised I was getting really lovey-dovey with him, but... I couldn't help it.

I got on all fours and crouched as I watched as Alex start putting together his own form. Thank Arceus, he listened to my advice and picked a darker fur color, despite picking a Lopunny base. Looking at the finished result, it definitely was easy on my eyes, unlike Janine's, which was jsut too saccharine for my taste. Alex at least knew what was important.

"You people... Well, it's your body. Can't say it's the worst thing I've ever seen, but... whatever." Victor exclaimed as he took a look at Alex's proposed form. Damn, at least it wasn't some kind of goop monster or anything like the one we fought at the entrance. Alex took off his gear and walked into the chamber, the pervert in me eyeing his naked backside. It was...very firm-looking and toned, like he worked out regularly. After a while, I saw Alex start growing inside the chamber, coming out to be around Janine's height. After the process was over, he stepped out, showing his new form. He had a double-Zoroark mane, a crescent on his forehead and a lot more tails. The dark look actually managed to make the Lopunny base look really cool.

"Just peachy. All three of you look ridiculous. Now, if you're done wasting my time, I've got work to do." Victor scoffed, before he headed out of the door. I looked at him, wondering why he was in such a hurry.

"I think... I think I'm in love! Yes! But... hey, what is your new Pokémon name anyway?" Janine squealed, to which I rolled my eyes. Seriously? That girl believed in love at first sight? Man, what a kid.

"Hmm...I like the idea of mashing 'bunny' and 'ninja' as one. 'Bunninja' has a nice ring to it." Alex replied, to which I repeated softly. It definitely had a nice flow to it, despite my lack of classical training.

"Love it! Aww Alex, you're so awesome." Janine gushed, before kissing him on the cheek. Man, as if she couldn't be crazier. I wanted to knock her out of her euphoria, just to see her cry or something, but unfortunately, Lady Luck was probably in a bad mood.

"Initiate lockdown. I repeat, initiate lockdown of the facility."

So, that was why Victor was in such a hurry. I dashed forward and slapped Janine out of it.

"Damn, you idiot! Now's not the time to go PDA in here when we're about to get locked up. We better either kill him or get outta here!" I growled, before dashing out the door and looking around. No sign of Victor or any guards...yet. We had to do something...and do it fast.
