    Actually, while Armaldo is the most logical answer, do you think he's really going to call the Guild apprentices 'gang'? For a second I thought it was Wigglytuff, then I remembered Wigglytuff was stuck with Chatot

    Here's the next chapter! I'm going back and naming all my chapters, so if you're curious, check the table of contents.


    Chapter 14
    Don't Poke the Ursaring


    Grovyle sighed. He strode through the tunnels, thinking about everything and nothing. His thoughts continuously strayed to his small pink friend (No, not Kirby!) frozen in time on the surface world, no matter what he did to distract himself. He even tried to hypnotize himself with the flourescent blue moss on the rocky walls, but to no avail.

    "Oh, Celebi! Aaaaargh!"

    The roar of sorrow and frustration reverberated throughout the darkness of the tunnels, bouncing around for miles and miles. More than anything else, Grovyle longed to hear Celebi's sweet, musical laughter, but the only response he got was his own hollow answer. Or, at least, it should have been.

    "Well well well."

    Grovyle whirled around, but he could see no one. "Wh-who's there?"

    The voice came again. "I never expected to see you again."

    "Show yourself!" Grovyle ordered. He almost though he could recognize the voice, but he couldn't place his finger on who it was...

    "Grovyle, dear Grovyle, is that anyway to treat an old friend?"

    Grovyle leapt in surprise as a pair of figures emerged from the shadows before him. Both were large and bulky, and neither looked like good news. One had large bushy tufts of fur sticking out all over it, and its eyes glowed a pale blue. The other had four muscly arms flexing in the air, preparing for a fight.

    "An Abomasnow and a Machamp," Grovyle identified. "I don't believe I know either of you. If I should, please, do not be offended."

    Machamp shook his head. "Nah, we don't know you, either."

    "We have no quarrel with you," Abomasnow added. "It's the Boss who's after you."

    "Th-the Boss?" Grovyle inquired. "Who's the Boss?"

    "That would be me."

    A shadow dropped down from the ceiling, landing gracefully and spider-like before Grovyle. He reeled back in surprise. And, as the light illuminated the figure before him, he fell back even further in terror.

    "Y-y-you! H-how did you get here?!?"

    The Boss loomed up over Grovyle, grinning wickedly. "I might ask you the same thing, Grovyle, my boy!"

    With that, he struck.


    "...So, that basically ends our story."

    "Up to this point, at least."

    "How do we know this isn't the end of our story?"

    "Well, we've succeeded so far, haven't we?"

    "So far. Which probably means we're gonna die."

    "Don't say that!"

    "Yeah! You'll jinx the mission!"

    "I'll bet you $20 we die within a week!"

    "Ok!"

    "You're on!"

    "Alright! But when we're dead, you'll so owe me that money."

    Lucario and Mew could only stare embarrassedly at Piplup, Chimchar, and Dusknoir's meaningless argument about their own deaths. "That was...interesting," Mew grinned sheepishly.

    "Interesting is one way to put it," Lucario agreed. "Deranged would also work."

    "Yes, deranged is another way to put it."

    "We can hear you!" Chimchar growled.

    Dusknoir pointed accusingly at the duo. "Yeah! You two aren't exactly figures of normality either!"

    "Are you calling me weird?" Mew twitched.

    "Err, no! No!" Dusknoir waved his hands frantically in front of his face. "I'm not calling you weird! I'm just saying that you're...abnormal?"

    Steam circled up from Mew's ears. "Abnormal? ABNORMAL?"

    "Dusknoir!" Piplup hissed. "Don't poke the Ursaring! Don't poke the Ursaring!"

    "No, no!" Dusknoir shook his head at Mew. "Not abnormal, not abnormal! Um...Um..."

    Mew roared with rage. "You're calling me a freak! A freak, I say! Lucario, hold me back! Hold me back!"

    "Uh, ok." Lucario reached out and grabbed her shoulders. The next instant, he was layed out flat on his back.

    "Idiot!" Mew bellowed. "Don't hold me back! That's insane!"

    "WAIT!!!"

    Everyone turned to Piplup. "We have business here! Important business! Or has that slipped everybody's mind?"

    "It slipped my mind!" Chimchar whooped excitedly.

    "Well, that's obvious," Piplup pointed out. "Your brain's slipperier than a fresh caught Magikarp on a rainy day!"

    Chimchar gasped in horror. "A fresh caught Magikarp?"

    "Yeah, a fresh caught Magikarp. You know, like fishing..." Piplup trailed off, suddenly realizing what he'd said. "Oh yeah."

    "We don't hunt other Pokemon!" Chimchar gaped, appaled. "Where did that idea ever come to you from?"

    Piplup shrugged. "It was a human thing, I think."

    "Oh, that's disgusting!"

    "Sorry."

    "Don't apologize to me! Apologize to the Magikarp!"

    "Whatever!" Piplup roared again. "What I'm trying to say is that Chimchar, Dusknoir, and I have told our story! Now, Lucario, Mew, we need to be told yours."

    Lucario frowned. "Oh yes, of course. But shouldn't we wait for your friend?"

    "Grovyle?" Piplup shook his head. "Nah, he'll catch on fast once we explain it to him. Go ahead, tell us your story."

    Mew, suddenly tranquil again, took the spotlight. "Well, our story isn't much of one."

    "Yeah," Lucario cut in. "We were just-"

    "Lucario," Mew sighed. "Haven't we had this discussion before?"

    "Probably."

    "Leave the story-telling to me, alright?"

    "Fine."

    Mew turned back to Piplup, Chimchar, and Dusknoir. "So, as I was saying-"

    Once again, Mew was cut off, this time by an enormous crash. The noise of shattering rock filled the cavern as an echo from somewhere within the tunnels. "What was that?" Chimchar wondered.

    "I don't know, but it didn't sound good!" Lucario growled. "Mew, stay here to watch the ruins! Make sure that if something goes wrong, they're not discovered."

    Mew nodded. "Rightio! And remember next time, I give the orders."

    "Of course. Sorry."

    "I'll let it slide. This time."

    "Anyway, I'll go out to investigate," Lucario proclaimed.

    Piplup stepped up beside him. "Chimchar and I will go, too."

    "Yeah," Chimchar agreed. "Grovyle's out there, and he might be in trouble. We're going out with you."

    "Fine, if you insist," Lucario relented. "But Dusknoir should stay here with Mew in case something should happen. They can guard the ruins and make sure they're not discovered."

    Dusknoir rose up menacingly behind Lucario. "Hey! Since when did I start taking orders from you?"

    "Dusknoir!" Piplup snapped. "Bad Dusknoir! Sit!"

    Obediently, Dusknoir sat.

    "Impressive," Lucario commented. "Is he house-trained?"

    "I heard that!"

    Piplup grinned mischievously. "Ok! Let's go!"



    Hope you like it!

    Awesome chapter! I liked the obedient Dusknoir and No, Not Kirby! stuff. The boss is a spider, or something like that? Maybe I should look in the Platinum Strategy Guide. Anyways, can't wait for more!

    Well, the Boss isn't a spider, I'll tell you that. He was just hanging spider-like from the ceiling. You know, how a frog or a Gecko can climb around.

    If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says, ‘If you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father in the gates of Heaven.

    OMG! This fanfic is awesome in every way. One thing I would like to point out is that when you are saying something along the lines of "The guild was always there for Chimchar and I", it's not "Chimchar and I" it's "Chimchar and me". Try it without Chimchar, and you'll see that it's me. I cannot wait for the next chapter! Please put me on the PM list.

    Hey, can I be on the PM list too? I've been following this from Explorers of Nightmares. Your sense of humor is so funny! The random conversations are the best so far. Piplup and Chimchar are FTW!!

    Yep, both of you are on the PM list!

    And, while I'm here, here's the next chapter!


    Chapter 15
    The Rescue Party


    "Yah!"

    "Hoo-ah!"

    "Grr-aah!"

    Grovyle jumped back, narrowly avoiding the devastating Cross Chop from his adversary. Machamp bounded after him, delivering Karate Chop after Karate Chop, but Grovyle dodged every one.

    "Grr! Stand still, you little lizard man!"

    Grovyle grinned slightly. "And what reason would I have to stand still? To let you beat the snot out of me?"

    "Well...er, um..." Machamp scratched his head thougthfully. "Er, uh, well..."

    "Careful," Grovyle warned. "If you think too hard, your brain may just turn into a muscle too!"

    "Hey!" Grovyle sidestepped just in time to avoid Abomasnow's Blizzard. "Nobody can make fun of my pal Machamp's lack of brain power but me!"

    Machamp smiled. "Yeah! What he said! Hey, wait a minute!"

    "While I'd love to stay and hear more of your wit," Grovyle snickered. "I really must be going."

    "You're not going anywhere!" the Boss screamed from the shadows. "Abomasnow, Machamp, finish him now!"

    Machamp and Abomasnow leapt forward together, Cross Chop and Ice Punch both swinging forward. "Right, Boss!"

    One second, Grovyle was standing before them. The next, he was gone, replaced with a hole in the ground. Abomasnow and Machamp smashed hard into each other, moaning in pain.

    "Fools!" the Boss roared. "He used Dig! He's underneath you!"

    "No," Machamp mumbled. "I believe that's Abomasnow." He sat up, allowing his partner pinned beneath him to sit up.

    "I-I'm alive!" Abomasnow breathed. "Machamp, you need to drop a few pounds."

    In an shower of dirt, Grovyle erupted out of the ground, scattering Abomasnow and Machamp like rag dolls. "Coming through!"

    "Ha ha!"

    The next thing Grovyle knew, he was laid out flat on his back by the Boss's silent strike with a glowing blue claw. "Uurgh!" he groaned.

    "How do you like my Dragon Claw?" the Boss snickered. "Abomasnow, Machamp, finish him now!"

    "Right, Boss!" the two chorused. They stepped forward and simultaneously brought down Ice Punch and Cross Chop, smashing Grovyle even deeper into the ground.

    "Aaargh!" Grovyle screamed.

    "Again!" the Boss commanded. "One more time! Finish him!"

    Abomasnow and Machamp grinned and raised their arms again, poised for the final strike.

    "Fire!"

    There was an enormous explosion as Abomasnow and Machamp were slammed into the tunnel wall by the combined force of Hydro Pump, Flamethrower, and Aura Sphere. "What?" the Boss gasped. "Who's there?"

    "That'd be us!"

    "Yeah! We're the rescue party!"

    "After all, we really know this guy needs it!"

    Grovyle managed to raise his head in time to see Piplup, Chimchar, and Lucario leaping into battle with Abomasnow and Machamp. Then, unconsiousness flooded his mind and the world went dark.

    "Keep it up, guys!" Lucario instructed. "These guys are total pushovers! They'll be down in no time if we keep beatin' 'em down!"

    "Yeah!" Piplup agreed. "Full power!"

    The three continued to fire barrage after barrage of attacks onto Abomasnow and Machamp, keeping the two off their feet and against the wall. "Wait!" Chimchar exclaimed suddenly.

    "What, Chimchar?" Piplup asked.

    "When we first got here, there was another guy in the middle of the tunnel!"

    "Yeah. So?"

    "So!" Lucario gasped. "We're only fighting two!"

    The strike came from above. Piplup went first, followed by Chimchar, then Lucario. They were slammed backward by a vortex of swirling leaves. "Aaargh!"

    "You were fools to stand up for your friends!" the Boss howled in triumph. He stepped from the shadows and stood over the fallen trio, prepared to deliver the final strike before they could rise. His bushy green tail twitched excitedly and the spikes on his wrists were sharpened and ready for attacking.

    "Oh no you don't!"

    "Yeah! Now you're meddling in the business of the Army of the Core!"

    The Boss looked up in surprise as he was hit hard by Flash Cannon and Dragon Pulse. Two small figures landed before him.

    "You! Why are you attacking me?" the Boss demanded.

    "Why? I'll tell you why! When you attacked our target, you messed in the affairs of No. 88 and 89! And when you do that, you're in big trouble!"

    "You two!" Piplup gasped, sitting up. No.88 and 89 stood before the Boss, prepared to strike again.

    Chimchar frowned. "You're helping us? Why?"

    "That's easy!" No.88 grinned, his iron head glowing white with another Flash Cannon. "We've been assigned by Bastiodon and Rampardos to capture you! If this guy beats us to it, we'd be ashamed!"

    "We could never show our faces in front of the bosses again!" No.89 added.

    "Don't you get it, you fools?" the Boss howled. "We're on the same team!"

    "Yeah, yeah, tell it to the judge!"

    "You guys get out of here!" No.88 yelled. "We can take tall, dark, and ugly!"

    Before anyone knew what was happening, No.88 and 89 and been pounded into the wall by the Boss. Piplup and Chimchar sighed as Lucario rose up behind them, helping them to their feet.

    "Now, fools, face your defeat!" the Boss bellowed.

    "Wait!" Chimchar interrupted. "Just who are you?"

    "Me?" the Boss scoffed. "All you need to know about me is that I'm a bounty hunter hired by Bastiodon to take down you guys. Same with my partners over there who you rather unkindly beat into a pulp!"

    "Th-th-that's not all you are."

    Everyone turned to face Grovyle. "You!" the Boss scowled. "I thought you'd been taken care of! Then again, you just can't pass up a chance to be the hero."

    Grovyle's eyes were barely open and speaking appeared to be an enormous struggle. "Th-this Pokemon is more than just a b-bounty hunter."

    "You know him?!" Piplup gaped in astonishment.

    Grovyle nodded weakly. "Y-yes. Th-this is Sceptile. And he's...he's..."

    "Allow me to finish!" Sceptile, the Boss, interrupted. "I am...his father!"

    ... ... ... Now that was a shock. I mean, it really was. The mention of Dragon Claw led me to think it was a Dragon-type Pokemon. I liked the plot twist.

    Nice chapter overall!
    on a hiatus at the moment.
