    Charminions: After a few failed attempts of harvesting the berries, you use your environment as inspiration. Taking a cue from the blue feather you found, you decide to have Osage freeze the berries. Pigkey watches all of this unfold, and she considers intervening. She steps forward just as Osage is taking a deep breath. He exhales towards the berries, and his breath was converted to frost. Knowing how powerful the attack can be, he remembers to tone down the power a bit. Once he's done, Pigkey grabs a berry and much to her surprise it doesn't burst. Pigkey smells the berry, and she immediately throws on the ground and sticks her tongue out. It seems that while your method was successful, those particular berries may have been rotten.

    She sniffs the air for some fresher berries, and it leads her to a different bush nearby. You walk over to see them, but you stumble on a root. While you don't fall to the ground, your Pokedex does; and it opens up. When you retrieve it, it scans the berries:




    Pigkey grabs a Nutpea Berry, and eats it. You see her face change to a look of utter delight. At last you all found some fresh berries! She grabs another berry and holds it up to you. Before you could even approach her to take the berry, it disappears with a blue streak.

    You look around to find the culprit, and you discover a familiar Pokemon. It seems a Swellow plucked the berry from Pigkey's hands, and it lands on a branch to snack on it. All of a sudden, an entire flock of Taillow and Swellow appear. They divebomb the Nutpea Berry bushes and grab every single one of them, even the frozen ones. All of the Taillow are able to escape quickly, leaving three Swellow behind. The first Swellow that appeared squawks something at the other three, then at you and flies away. The other three begin squawking too. They seem angry and stare you down. Perhaps these Nutpea Berries are their favorite treats. Regardless, it's evident they're quite angry, and they are prepared to defend their snack source. They all begin by flapping their wings releasing a flurry of stars that swiftly speed towards you.

    What will you do?



    OOC: If you'd like you can use another Pokemon. Either way, any participant will be limited to two attacks per Pokemon each round.
    Fortunately following his orders, Osage breathes out a frosty breath toward the berries. Using common sense, he weakens the attack enough to do the job without damaging anything. Once the attack secedes, Pigkey steps forward and grabs another berry, this time successfully gripping it with no icky mess coming from it. She begins sniffing the berries before throwing them down in disgust. "What's wrong? Are they rotten?" Charm asks.

    Pigkey sniffs the air once more and heads to a bush containing fresher berries. Charm starts heading over there. "Woahh," his leg catches onto a root and he stumbles over. His black and red Hoenn Pokedex falls out of his pocket and lands on the ground. "Jeez, I just got that and it's already dirtying up," he heads over to pick it up when the dex simultaneously scans the berries.

    Quote Originally Posted by Pokedex

    Pigkey grabs a Nutpea Berry from this new bush and nibbles on it, her face showing signs of extreme enjoyment from the berry. She picks up another one and holds it out to Charm when, suddenly, a blue flash zooms through and nabs the berry from her hand.

    "What in the -" Charm looks around to see who the thief is, before noticing a Swellow perched on a tree branch snacking on the stolen berry. Before Charm has a chance to say anything, a whole flock of Taillow and Swellow storm in and grab every last berry from the bushes before flying off, with only 3 Swellow staying behind. "Damnit, we need to get those berries!" Charm whines. The leader who was watching from the branch crows some orders to the 3 birds before flying off like the others. The Swellow suddenly looks very angry at the group, looking ready to defend their food from any strangers. "Ugh, looks like we have no choice but to fight them."

    The 3 Swellow begin flapping their wings simultaneously, emitting a dozens of fast moving stars towards them. Charm's adrenaline kicks in and he pulls out a Pokeball from his belt as fast as possible before releasing it to send out his own special Swellow, Rukia. "Block the stars off with a Twister! Then swoop in and knocks the middle Swellow with Steel Wing." The elegant black and red Swellow caws softly, understanding the direness of this situation. Rukia has always been a shy little bird, but when it came to battle, she does everything she can to help her trainer. Charm then turns to his left, watching the passive Osage watch non-chalantly at what is taking place. "Osage, I need your help again. I want you to Ice Beam the left Swellow, then Brain Freeze it." The trainer then turns to Pigkey, "You may at a disadvantage, little one, but try your best! Smack Down then Thunder Punch at the right Swellow." Charm bites his lip, facing down the next obstacle in their quest for the Nutpea Berry.

    Uhhhhh: After witnessing an innocent tree get destroyed by the Yanmega's attack, you decide this chase is quickly becoming futile. Plus the urge to photograph it overcomes you. As you give your orders, you decide to hurriedly snap some photos before it takes any extensive damage; maybe some action shots containing Gaspard would be nice too. Gaspard acknowledges your orders and skids to a halt. He immediately turns and runs at Yanmega, the hand on his tail becoming a fist. He uses some energy to set the fist on fire, and he leaps into the air swinging his tail around to punch the Ogre Darner. He manages to land a fiery uppercut to Yanmega's chin, but the giant insect is not burned and frankly not too damaged. Without missing a beat, Yanmega headbutts Gaspard, knocking him back a few yards.

    Gaspard quickly gets back to his feet and runs back to the insect. Along the way, he's plotting some nasty revenge for Yanmega. Meanwhile, you are aiming your lens at Yanmega and start taking some photos. With his plans finalized, Gaspard begins to glow a grey, stony color tapping into something hidden deep within. The rocky color leaves his body in the form of little orbs of power rotating around the Aipom. Following the details of his plans, Gaspard launches the orbs at a time when Yanmega seems to be distracted by your photography. Yanmega catches on, though, and counters the attack with one strong flap of its wings, releasing numerous speedy stars. They swiftly fly through the air and collide with the Hidden Power resulting in no damage taken by either side.

    "YAAANNN YYYYYAAAANNNN!" Yanmega becomes outraged that you're putting up a fight and even taking pictures. It rapidly flaps its giant wings creating a blade of air to blast at you and Gaspard. The wind from its wing flapping is already enough to knock you off your feet and the camera out of your hands, but your real problem is the blade of air that's quickly cutting through the wind heading your way. Maybe snapping some photos of an ancient Pokemon was going too far.

    What will you do?
    "YAAANNN YYYYYAAAANNNN!" the Yanmega got mad even more as Connor continued to take pictures and Gaspard actually being capable of taking it on in a fight. It then unleashed an Air Cutter towards the two and it quickly swept Connor off his feet. "Waaaah!" he cried out as he fell with a thud, his camera knocked off from his hands. "Aipopom!" Gaspard called out to him. The photographer didn't have time to react though as another blade of air was heading towards his direction, threatening to badly injure him. "Humphrey!" as soon as the young photographer called out his name, a shiny Boldore popped out from one of his Pokeballs and stood between Connor and the blade of air, with the intention of taking the hit for him. Connor then intended on getting his camera back afterwards to take more photos of the Yanmega. No way was the Ogre Darner Pokemon getting away from this.

    Meanwhile, Gaspard, upon seeing one of his teammates protecting Connor from the hit, then focused on the giant Yanmega. Without waiting for orders he Worked himself Up as he prepared for yet another Fire Punch against the giant bug, intent on getting back against it for attempting to attack his partner.

You become frantic as you search around furiously for your beloved Bite Pokemon. Omen and Spi each also deal with the situation in their own ways. For reasons only he knows, Omen decides to feast on your emotions. After watching Omen feasting and you sobbing long enough, Spi hops over to you and pecks you on your head to try and snap you out of it. It works somewhat though because you begin to take action.

    Without even a thought of the next Apricorn, you summon your Espeon Himiko to assist you. Right away, she can tell how distraught you are, so she attempts to help you by nuzzling her head on your hand. You calm yourself a little, and you request of your Psychic types try and determine where Max went off to. The gem on Himiko's head glows, as she tries to sense the air currents around her to find Max. Spi stares straight ahead from where he stands. Is he staring at you or into the future?

    In the meantime, Omen takes this opportunity to float around the area. He floats up to the tree and inspects the ripe apricorns. It's while he's high up that he sees it. Around the same time, Himiko's gem ceases to glow. Omen floats down from the tree and over to you, and Himiko walks over to you as well. They get your attention while you sit on a log worried sick and crying for Max. Omen tries to point his horn in a specific direction, and Himiko also tries to urge you to follow in that same direction. "Follow please," you hear in your thoughts. Did Himiko say that?

    You decide at long last to follow them; afterall, Himiko is a psychic. Himiko and Omen lead the way followed by you then finally Spi. They lead you past a few trees. You make a mental note to yourself that you passed through the two Yellow Apricorn trees and a Nanab Berry tree. Now you are standing between a couple Colbur Berry trees. In one of the trees you see three large leaves that seem to be wrapped around something. On the ground you see something in a mass of what appears to be bandages. Himiko and Omen both point towards the pile of bandages.

    As you approach the bandages, you begin to hear some panting and wimpering. Were they right? All of a sudden some leaves slice into the ground. Judging by the angle they fell, it seems they came from the tree with those large leaves. Looking up you see one of them has turned around and is looking at you. It seems you disturbed this little group of Swadloon. Perhaps Max did too? The other two turn around, and now you seem to be up against three Swadloon. They all launch some razor-sharp leaves at you.

    What will you do?



    OOC: You're right. I may have used an old set of updates to make a template (yes I copy and paste). Ficksed.
    No probs


    As Okiku sobbed while sitting on a log, her Pokémon seemed to have hatched some kind of plan to help her and her lost best friend: Spi stared at his trainer (perhaps looking into the past or future, or just being lost in thought), Himiko tried her best to use her psychic powers to get a general feel of the environment, while Omenya finally stopped feeding off Okiku's feelings and decided to float up over the trees to look around. After a few moments, Omen came right back down and Himiko's gem stopped glowing simultaneously. Both then approached their sad-ridden trainer and exclaimed at her. Okiku simply responded by lifting her face off of her hands, soaked with her tears, and looked at her Ghost and Psychic-typed Pokémon. After a playful twirl into the air, the Shuppet moved and repetitively nodded his pointy head towards a direction. Himiko, on the other hand, was more successful of making herself understood:

    "Follow, please."

    Okiku's watery eyes opened widely. Not only she was surprised to be spoken to telepathically for the second time in her life – the first being with her first hatched Pokémon, her Girafarig Therese – but she was even more surprised to hear in her mind what she believed to be Himiko speaking to her for the very first time.

    "W-what did you say!?" Okiku garbled between her sobs in astonishment.

    "Follow, please!" the Espeon repeated, this time with a bit more enthusiasm, wagging her forked tail to confirm it was truly her who spoke.

    Even with her immense worry for her long-time best friend, Okiku managed to crack up a light smile, proud of her other Pokémon companions doing their very best for her, despite her being a total emotional wreck.

    "Alright," she nodded and slowly pulled herself up on her feet, "I'll follow. Lead the way!"

    Omen and Himi nodded back in unison, glad to see their trainer in slightly better spirits. They started walking towards the direction the ghost pointed to earlier, while Okiku followed close behind. Spi, which during this whole time simply relaxing on a branch, decided to perch on his trainer's shoulder so he would also join the group while continuing to being lazy. As they walked through the field, Okiku tried to remember in her head the path they were taking by noting the trees they walk by: so far, two Yellow Apricorn trees and a Nanab Berry tree, then two Colbur Berry trees. One of the trees of the spiky berries had three big leaves wrapped around something, but it was towards the ground where the Shuppet and the Espeon had their attention on.

    "...Bandages?" Okiku exclaimed as she lifted an eyebrow, looking down at her feet.

    Before the young woman reached out for her head to scratch it in confusion, some strange panting and whimpering was heard from afar. She frowned as she had mixed feelings about if she should hope it was Max or not, but then she noticed some big leaves falling around the bandages, which she guessed they were the same than those that were attached to those trees. She looked up where the leafy wrappings were, and sure enough, a Swadloon was angrily looking right at her.

    "Err... hi?" Okiku nervously said to it. "S-sorry to disturb you, in any way..."

    The two other leaf wrappings revealed a couple of equally upset Swadloon.

    "Uhhh, I-I'm really sorry guys... We've... come in peace?"

    The Swadloon trio ignored her plea though and immediately threw razor-sharp leaves at her and her Pokémon.

    "Omen! Omnious Wind! Quick!" Okiku hastily ordered, seeing no way to negotiate with the wild Pokémon, and hoping the Omenya's wind would counter the Razor Leaf attack. "Himi, Confusion at the one on the left; Spi, Peck the crap out of the one on the right!"

    Myahoo: You began to wonder if the storm had passed by. Chloe was still tending to Wildfire. Wings was relaxing as best it could amidst all of the squabbling the two Pidove were doing. You could hear Chloe sighing while she was treating Wildfire. The third Pidove continued to worry, at times stepping between the two arguers. The echoing of their cries was starting to get on your nerves. Chloe sighed again. Then finally, "Wings, can you please see if you can calm them down?"

    Wings approached the Pidove and began talking to the arguing birds. The third Pidove responded to Wings. Naturally you couldn't understand what was said. All you could see is that the Pidove would say something then point to one Pidove, then say somthing else and point to the other Pidove. "Thank you Wings!" she said relieved. Your concentration was broken when she spoke to you, "Ok Melissa. Wildfire should be just fine. Luckily he didn't take too much damage. A good night's sleep should get him back to 100%. Now I wonder what they're on about."

    Wildfire jumped down and joined the birds conversing. He was listening as best he could while Chloe was treating him, but now he could get the story in more detail. After a few minutes of chat, Wings and the Pidove stopped. Wings returned to Chloe's side, and Wildfire returned to yours. He thought for a moment and then with your attention he attmepted to explain. Wings was already speaking with Chloe.

    Wildfire first pointed at the Pidove who were recently arguing, then to himself. Then he pointed to the third Pidove and then crossed his arms together like he was embracing himself all the while batting his eyes. Next he pointed at the arguing Pidove on the left. He jumped through the air with his arms spread as far apart as he could manage. When he landed he immediately pointed to the third Pidove, crossed his arms again like just before, and rushed over to Wings and grabbed its wing.

    "Interesting," Chloe remarked after listening to what Wings told her and seeing Wildfire grab Wings. "Know what this means Melissa?" At that point the female Pidove and the male she chose flew out of the cave together. The remaining Pidove looked upset. He looked at you and Wildfire and forced a smile. He cooed something and immediately approached Wings, his eyes glowing. Wings watched, and you could see Wings slowly fall to sleep. The Pidove's hypnosis put Wings to sleep. "Wings, wake up!" Chloe cried. "What am I going to do? I only brought Wings with me on this trip and Boldore is too injured to be of any use." It seems this Pidove still had some fight left in him.

    What will you do?
    She sighed silently in relief when Wings went over to talk to the Pidove, the arguing pair pausing as the third explained the situation to the larger Staravia. Soon afterward, Chloe finished treating Wildfire as best she could and Melissa smiled at the diagnosis. "Thanks for that. I still haven't gotten into the habit of bringing Potions or anything with me yet," she said, slightly sheepish as she watched Wildfire listen to the birds' conversation.

    Once they finished, the Cyndaquil turned back to his trainer as Wings returned to Chloe, both intent on relaying the conversation. Her Cyndaquil started off pointing to the two previously-arguing Pidove, then pointing at himself. Melissa's brow furrowed in confusion as her starter repeated this a few times, the fire mouse noticing that she didn't understand. He then sighed exasperatedly, before pointing to the third Pidove and batting his eyes. Melissa's expression cleared as she nodded her understanding, Wildfire moving on in his charades.

    At the end, Melissa took a moment to make sure she understood what he was saying. "So, you're telling me that those two that were arguing are males, the third is a female, the males were arguing over the female, and she ended up choosing the guy on the left?" she asked, glancing at the trio of little birds, before looking back at Wildfire. Her starter nodded. "Alright then. What's that got to do with us, though?" she wondered under her breath, before answering Chloe's question with a "Not really. Well, I got what's happening, but what's this mean for us?"

    She watched the pair fly away, turning her gaze to the remaining bird, as he forced a smile and cooed something. When the little bird moved to Wings and the two locked gazes, Melissa only started getting uneasy when Wings began to fall asleep, Wildfire shifting to put himself between his trainer and the Pidove. Melissa briefly listened to Chloe complain, before she turned her thoughts towards trying to figure out why the Pokemon was turning on them now.

    "Wildfire, don't look him in the eye, but see if you can find out why he put Wings to sleep. If he attacks you though, throw up a Smokescreen and then Quickly Attack him," she quietly told her starter, making sure not to meet the little Pokemon's gaze either. It'd be bad if she got put to sleep while she was standing in this cavern, not the least because it'd probably hurt a lot to hit the ground here. And, well, her leg.

    ...Nobody say anything. I've got a hungry Seviper, and I'm not afraid to use her! =P I may or may not be taking an updating hiatus for the next couple of months, it just depends on how intensive my schoolwork gets.


    The Divine Woodland


    Diamond Lake

    Meetan

    While you were trying to rescue a Surskit from its fever, another Pokemon was in dire straits as the Swellow you battled just got snatched up by something, and whatever it was left a pawprint behind. Perhaps it was a predator that found an opportunity for a free meal? Anyway, you had your little porker try to get the scent of the perp, and thankfully the good little Odor Sleuth was soon hot on the trail as he scurries off toward the forest close by. You didn’t want him to lose the scent, but suddenly the ranger’s phone started ringing. “Ranger Kellogg. … What!? Are you sure!? I’ll be there right away!” He hangs up and then speaks to you trying to make you feel at ease, but you could sense the urgency in his voice: “I’m sorry, I’d like to help you track down whatever it was that took Swellow, but something came up, and I’m needed back at the station. Good luck, though!” And with that, he ran back down the trail he came from while you run after Swinub in an effort to catch up to him.

    Soon after you catch up, however, he seems confused. Seems like the enemy was pretty crafty and hid their trail in the tall grass you found yourself in. Since he could no longer find the enemy’s scent, you ask him to try finding Swellow’s scent. It may have been a familiar scent, but he didn’t find it immediately. You try moving out of the tall grass, and it seems he can pick up a faint scent, but he doesn’t seem too sure of it. As you move closer, he’s still not sure yet, but closer … closer … Swinub suddenly points toward the trees again, and you move with haste until you are able to pick out something in one of the taller trees and stop yourself. Swinub confirms that the scent is leading toward the tree and you creep slower and slower towards that tree. On one of the branches, you eventually identify the scene as a Persian sitting there with its paws over Swellow’s limp wing. Looking closer, you could see the puma licking the bird’s body, pulling feathers out, and is about to take a bite into Swellow’s chest when it suddenly looks in your direction and gives you a low, deadly Growl. Oh dear, intruder alert indeed

    What will Alice do?


    Magus Falls

    As you dismount Minori, you feel the pressure behind the battle against the Lunar Mage’s Lunatone. What if you lost? You would be stuck here forever! No, you couldn’t think like that … Thanks to your using Minori, you had a type advantage, though there was no telling what a Psychic Pokemon like Lunatone would do. All you could do was trust in your Seel and hope things worked out.

    Well, Minori was certainly going to give it his best shot as he starts off by making a big tidal wave with his tail that almost filled the entire room. As it Surfed towards Lunatone, the wave crashed into it, though it only clipped it from the side, still dealing some nice damage, and you could see the crescent-shaped Rock looking a little more Polished than it was before. Then it uses its powers to levitate a Rock in order to Throw it at Minori. He does see this coming and tries to Dive out of the way, but the boulder is faster and gets to him before he completely submerges. The Seel is able to shrug off the pain, however, and prepares to strike with an Aqua Tail by swimming underneath where the Rock-type was, but the Lunatone’s Confusion attack is able to barely divert the attack towards a wall, causing full damage to Minori in the process, though the Lunatone does take some more damage from the water splashing off the wall. Currently, Lunatone has 10% more energy than Minori, but Minori’s super-effective attacks have provided him about a 10% health advantage.

    What will Noriko do?

    Dead Forest


    Toxic Marsh

    Ampharos_Dude

    As a mother Linoone with a sufficiently pressed Berserk Button was just about to break through the wooden door that separated you from your worst imaginations at that point coming true, you quickly try to throw a Pokeball at the Zigzagoon you just defeated. Fortunately, the Pokeball hits its mark, engulfs the raccoon, and, after only one shake, pinged to signify the capture was complete. But you couldn’t celebrate just yet! You tell the Squirtleman you achieved success as you pick up the now occupied Monster Ball, to which he hollered with a whoop afterward: “Ya got ‘im!? Whoo, rookie knows his stuff!”

    “All right, Shiro!” Louie chimes in. “You just stand back now, we’ll try ‘n git the mama to come away from there!”

    “Wait, Louie! She’s coming back yer way, I’m on her!” Ah, maybe she couldn’t smell her baby anymore and was heading back towards the living room to protect the other two? If so, now was your chance! You hurriedly call back all of your Pokemon, open the wooden door, and bolt for the front door. Quickly closing it behind you, you suddenly feel safe as you could now let the professionals handle the rest. “What’s goin’ on ‘n there?” the old lady outside asks you. You take another look at the Pokeball holding your newly obtained Lv. 5 Male Zigzagoon … and just sigh in relief.

    After about ten minutes of snarling and shouting, Squirtleman’s trademark whoop could be heard. “Mama Line in the Squirtle Ball!” Not long after, you could hear the babies get captured. Team Squirtle emerges victorious, and Carla looks almost as relieved as you were. “My gosh, what happened?”

    “Well, had a whole family a’ Zigzagoon in your place! But we got ‘em, we’ll make sure ‘n release ‘em ‘n everything in a safer place for ‘em!”

    “Wow, I am so grateful to you, now Riley won’t have to use his shotgun!”

    “Hmph!” he grunted, not really looking like he cared one way or the other. As Carla pays the Squirtle Team the reward, including some of her famous Cheri Pie, Squirtleman leaves with a whoop and a “Squirtleman out!” He then looks to you and says, “Ya did great there! You deserve a share of our reward!” before handing you a small bag with 500 coins and a Cheri Berry. “So, you ready fer our next job?”

    {All right, so you now have yourself a cute Zigzagoon! Expect to see something from Lilblue soon! First, make sure you claim the little guy in your reply before adding him to your party (and make sure you do the same thing for the items too). Second, provide a link to said reply when posting in the Egg House to collect your first egg, and you’ll have permanent access to the Egg House!}

    What will Shiro do?


    Missingno. Master

    Well, looked like you had some time to explore the Venom Barn, and as much as you wanted to see stuff with THE AWSUMIZT GYM LEEDR EVAR, you had to admit that you wanted the very special opportunity of seeing the Nidoran. “Yeah, I understand,” Roxie says to you. “I’ll be with the Scolipede if you change your mind!” And with that, Roxie heads over to the nearby greenhouse while the kids escort you to the Nidoran stables.

    There, you’re able to see quite a large family of Nidoran: three Nidoking, four Nidoqueen, six Nidorina, three Nidorino, and fifteen Nidoran, nine male, six female. Hey, I warned you, large family. Okay, not really, but anyway… the Nidoqueen occasionally stare at you to make sure you don’t try anything then return to tending to their babies. One Nidoqueen is giving her son a bath, and naturally the Nidoran hated every moment of it. Then a Nidorina, likely his older sister, had a mischievous smirk before she joined in with the intent to tickle him. The little guy had enough, and so did his mom as she roared to scare her daughter off before resuming his bath. When she was finished, the Nidoqueen set him down before moving on to another Nidoran. The little male then sees you and starts barking at you, trying to show how tough he is, before charging in your direction, and you sidestep to avoid his Tackle. “Huh,” Shelley nods, “looks like that Nidoran wants a battle, but I wouldn’ recommend it, what with his momma nearby. She sees him get hurt, and she ‘n the daddy’ll put ya through the wringer ‘fore she washes ya and hangs ya up to dry!” You get the feeling Shelley is speaking quite literally, but the male Nidoran was getting persistent, so you would have to think of another way to give him some attention.

    What will Keith do?


    The Burial Ground

    Marion Ette

    As your meeting with the three ghost sisters begins, you explain to Rowena and Katia what you had been doing for the past few weeks. You now had an ability which would be destructive to the minions of their older sisters, but you would need time to concentrate and get the spell ready. “So, you need a distraction, right?” said Rowena. “We know better than anyone else how to annoy Maura and Anastasia, right girls?

    Right!” Priscilla and Katia say with a slightly mischievous tone.

    Then you bring out Aislyn, your Ninetales, who is … eh, less than enthused about your appearance, to put it lightly. Her role was to be that of a Pokemon whose trainer had died and was then raised by the ghosts. Then you had her do a sad face, and she starts whining and her eyes start getting very soulful, and AWWW, I WANNA GO HUG HERRRR!!! Then you have her give her angry face, and wow, can she get mad! SHE WILL HAVE HER VENGEANCE, I ASSURE YOU! THIS! IS! …Not a good time for me to ramble, is it? Your Pokemon both agree with the plan, and the ghosts are assured that it’s the best plan they could come up with. As long as the focus was completely off of you, things would be fine. Well, let’s get started, then, shall we? Onward … TO VICTORY! … I have no idea where I am going. Actually, wait, yes I do, I’m the narrator!

    **********

    Aislyn and the three sisters head off confidently toward the graveyard while you stayed behind for a minute to gather your thoughts. When you were ready, you asked Sangre to Fly you over, and, when he was done chewing up a Yanma’s head (wait, when did he…?), he grabs your hand and carries you over to the trees, just outside of where the cemetery began. Aislyn and the others just got there, in fact, and you make sure to lay low until Maura and Anastasia appear and summon their minions. About the time when the four make it to the center of the graveyard, you could see the two hags from before. “So, sisters,” Anastasia speaks with a haughty tone, “is this going to be your last act of defiance before we send you to the Netherworld for eternity?

    And you have even brought a pretty pet for us!” said Maura, to which your Ninetales gives a fierce glare, all the while coming up with a truly Nasty Plot in order to make these ghosts live through Hell. “No!” Rowena said angrily. “You and your minions are responsible for killing her trainer!

    She barely escaped them alive, it was horrible!” Priscilla added. “We helped nourish her so that she would be strong enough to get her revenge on you, got it!?” Aislyn pours it on by starting to shed tears before giving Maura and Anastasia an even fiercer glare, almost as if she wanted nothing more than to tear their ghostly bodies apart. “You’ve gone too far now!” Katia chimes in. “We’ll make sure you two don’t hurt anyone else!

    All this time, you see the two older sisters ignore everyone else. Maura looks at the tips of her fingers (Are there nails? I’ve never figured that out about Haunter and Gengar…) before saying, “…Are you through? Ana, I believe it’s time to silence our sisters once and for all!” She then turns into her true form, a Gengar sporting a devious grin. “I absolutely agree, they always were inferior!” the other ghost says before she assumes her Mismagius form. Then their eyes start glowing, you could feel the ground shaking even from here, and you knew what was happening. You start to concentrate on your spell as about a hundred Poison-type Pokemon seep from their graves. They were mostly lower-leveled Koffing, Grimer, and Trubbish, but there were also some Weezing, Muk, and Garbodor among them that could prove more difficult to vanquish. Not much more is said as the four Pokemon surrounded by Poison-types assume battle stances. The Poison Pokemon inch closer, only for Aislyn to completely blast a Grimer with her Extrasensory power, KOing it instantly. Rowena tries a Sucker Punch, only for it to bounce off another Grimer’s Acid Armor completely; too bad that attack only works when the opponent is using an offensive move too. Fortunately, Priscilla picks up the slack as she lets loose her Psybeam on the same Grimer, and its Acid Armor wasn’t going to save it this time. Another KO’d Grimer! Katia tries her hand at one of the Koffing and attempts to Hypnotize it into going to sleep, but the Koffing looks away in time.

    One of the Trubbish spits some Sludge at Aislyn, doing only a little bit of damage, but it is enough to slightly poison her, and she grimaces as she now has to be subject to filthy, icky stuff on her beautiful fur. Another one spits Sludge at Katia, but it only does minimal damage, while a Koffing spews a Smokescreen in Priscilla’s area, reducing her Accuracy, and a Grimer tries a Mud Slap on Rowena, though she easily Levitates out of the way. Now the gorgeous Ninetales would not be denied the roasting of one Trubbish who dared to dirty her beautiful coat. Her Flamethrower instantly burns up not only the Trubbish in front of her but the one behind it as well. Not bad! She got her revenge, and then some! A Confuse Ray from Rowena then serves to confuse a couple of Koffing in the which they attack each other to the point where they Selfdestruct against each other. Rowena and the other Ghosts may have been in the blast zone, but they felt none of the damage. Three Grimer, a Garbodor, and two more Trubbish were all KO’d by the blast, however, as Priscilla thoroughly Astonished another Koffing, causing it to flinch. Katia then spits out a Shadow Ball to finish off that same Koffing before the Poison-types launched another assault. Another Grimer was close enough so that it could spew more Sludge at Aislyn, though the Ninetales is able to see it coming this time and jumps away, only getting her foot barely caught in the attack. Some other Poison-types mindlessly try Pound and Doubleslap attacks against the ghosts … yeah, did I mention they were mindlessly doing that? The two sisters were still focused on controlling their stronger minions, so the weaker ones were going to be fodder, apparently. One minute has passed by, and as you continue to concentrate on your spell you feel it will only be four more minutes until the spell is ready. During that time you would be unable to give orders to your Pokemon though, and even if you did you would give away your position.

    # of Minions Remaining:
    17 Grimer
    20 Koffing
    18 Trubbish
    11 Muk
    11 Weezing
    10 Garbodor

    What will Marion do?

    Well, looked like you had some time to explore the Venom Barn, and as much as you wanted to see stuff with THE AWSUMIZT GYM LEEDR EVAR, you had to admit that you wanted the very special opportunity of seeing the Nidoran. “Yeah, I understand,” Roxie says to you. “I’ll be with the Scolipede if you change your mind!” And with that, Roxie heads over to the nearby greenhouse while the kids escort you to the Nidoran stables.

    There, you’re able to see quite a large family of Nidoran: three Nidoking, four Nidoqueen, six Nidorina, three Nidorino, and fifteen Nidoran, nine male, six female. Hey, I warned you, large family. Okay, not really, but anyway… the Nidoqueen occasionally stare at you to make sure you don’t try anything then return to tending to their babies. One Nidoqueen is giving her son a bath, and naturally the Nidoran hated every moment of it. Then a Nidorina, likely his older sister, had a mischievous smirk before she joined in with the intent to tickle him. The little guy had enough, and so did his mom as she roared to scare her daughter off before resuming his bath. When she was finished, the Nidoqueen set him down before moving on to another Nidoran. The little male then sees you and starts barking at you, trying to show how tough he is, before charging in your direction, and you sidestep to avoid his Tackle. “Huh,” Shelley nods, “looks like that Nidoran wants a battle, but I wouldn’ recommend it, what with his momma nearby. She sees him get hurt, and she ‘n the daddy’ll put ya through the wringer ‘fore she washes ya and hangs ya up to dry!” You get the feeling Shelley is speaking quite literally, but the male Nidoran was getting persistent, so you would have to think of another way to give him some attention.

    What will Keith do?
    Keith was escorted to the stables, where a rather large family of Nidoran awaited. Having never had much experience with these Pokemon before, Keith was naturally quite eager to see them. The Nidoqueen would occasionally give him stares, making sure he wasn't there to try any funny business. Then, one male Nidoran, fresh from his bath, noticed Keith and barked at him, in an effort to show his strength before charging forward. Keith had to step off to the side to evade the Tackle before he took out his Pokedex.

    "Nidoran, the Poison Pin Pokemon," it droned. "The males have large horns which secrete powerful toxins, and large ears enabling them to hear the slightest sound."

    Shelley remarked that the Nidoran seemed to want a battle, but advised Keith against it, stating that his parents were likely to react in a very negative, very violent fashion. Keith nodded gravely in acknowledgement of this advice, though it was obvious the Nidoran wasn't gonna make this as easy as simply not battling- he was getting pretty persistent. Much as Keith would have liked to accept the little guy's challenge, he was also rather fond of not being mangled by an overprotective Nidoqueen and Nidoking. Instead, he crouched down and smiled at the Nidoran. "Hey, there, Nidoran," he said in a friendly voice. "You're pretty tough, aren't you? Yeah, I can tell. Hey, you know what? Instead of a battle, how about we play? You got any games you like to play?" he asked the Poison-type.

    I HAVE CLAIMED WEEZING. YOU ARE NOT WORTHY.

    Uhhhhh: With some quick thinking, you manage to defend yourself against the speeding Air Cutter by calling out your alternate-colored Boldore, Humphrey, to take the hit. Given the Yanmega's size, the attack does more damage than it should to a large rock, but being fresh, Humphrey takes it. All of a sudden, you all hear a loud sound screeching through the forest. The metallic sound rips through the four of you, but Yanmega seems to be most affected by it. The Ogre Darner pauses briefly before its glowing wings prepare to slice the air to create a blade of air to slash Gaspard.

    Gaspard, meanwhile, works himself up to attack more effectively. He charges at Yanmega with his tail fist charged with fire. As he was just about to punch Yanmega, you're all assaulted, once more, by another loud, screeching, metallic sound. You and Gaspard both grasp your ears seeking any form of comfort from the sound. Humphrey and Yanmega, not having hands, both tense up closing their eyes taking the sound hoping it would go away soon.

    When the sound finally ceases, you look around for the source. From behind some trees, an elderly woman appears. "Are you alright child?" she asks. From behind her, a large metallic Pokemon appears. The Pokemon with large plates of metal all over its body with two large horns stands beside her. "I heard Yanmega was around, so I had my Aggron scare it off. That Yanmega has been causing problems for the longest time, but it doesn't appear to enjoy the sound of Aggron's Metal Sound." It seems to have worked, because when you look back, you see the giant Yanmega turn around and fly off very quickly after seeing the lady's Aggron. She walks over to Humphrey, and pats his head. "My, what a beautifully unique Boldore," she comments. "While I don't agree with your choice of using your Pokemon to absorb attacks, I commend you for choosing a strong Rock-type. My name is Cecilia." She notices your camera. "I have a cabin near here. You're welcome to come back and rest a bit."

    Cecilia seems to have saved you from a tough battle, and Humphrey gained a fan. Whether or not that's a good thing in your opinion, you do have an offer for some rest. What will you do?

    Charminions: The battle against the three Swellow starts off with you at a disadvantage, but you even the score by relying on your very own Swellow. The unique black and red-feathered Swellow appears on the ground in front of you. As the speedy Swift stars fly through the air towards you, you take advantage of Rukia's own speed, and order a defense. Rukia's wings spins sideways with wings glowing and begins to flap powerfully. The gusts produced all swirl the air until a funnel cloud is created. The twister, between you and the Swift, catch a majority of the stars. They swirl in the the twister rapidly, while the others just collide with nearby trees and other foliage. Once the twister dissipates, the stars scatter once more, but now they're spread all over the area. They strike all of the Pokemon; Osage, Rukia, Pigkey, the three battling Swellow, and the first Swellow in the tree; for almost no damage. Once again, the surrounding environment is pelted with stars.

    Osage takes his orders and gets right to work, and it's a good thing too. Seeing their Swift attack pretty much failed to deter you, the leftmost Swellow quickly decides to fly in for an attack. Unfortunatley for it, the Swellow flies right through a beam of icy energy courtesy of Osage. While there was no freezing due to the Ice Beam, the Swellow's speed from the Quick Attack is slowed down. The not-so-Quick Attack slaps Osage, but he's not going down that easily. Swellow begins flying away.

    Pigkey, meanwhile, takes a nearby rock and throws it at its pre-chosen Swellow. The rock smacks the Swellow on its wing, and it begins to fall down to the ground. It stands up and tries to get back in the air, but it's temporarily incapacitated. Swellow begins to glow pink, and it releases a wave of power through the air heading towards Pigkey. Its effect, whether or not it's a secret, is unknown for now; as even though it hits Pigkey, she seems to be unaffected by any side effects.

    The remaining Swellow seems to have been angered greatly by Rukia nullifying their star shower. It gains a little altitude and flaps a brightly glowing wing, slashing at the air a couple times causing two air blades to slice their way towards Rukia. Rukia, though, begins her next attack and speeds through the air. Once she attains enough momentum, she spreads her wings and stiffens them, causing them to become as hard as steel. She glides right through the Air Slashes easily destroying them and finally she slams her steely wing into the Swellow knocking it down a few feet.

    Osage takes advantage of the slowed Swellow and blows some frozen air at it. Due to the blast of Ice Beam it previously took, this wave of frosty air doesn't seem to phase it much. Swellow's feathers protect it from feeling the crystals forming on it, slowing it down a little more. Its feet, however, feel the freeze. Will there be a lasting effect? Next it flies high up to the sky charging energy for a strong attack. It's certainly planning something.

    With an incapacitated Swellow to contend with, Pigkey leaps into the air and actually lands on Swellow's back! Her fist charges with thundrous energy, and she punches Swellow on the back. The close range of the electric attack seems to jolt Swellow into action. Showing no signs of paralysis, Swellow leaps into the air in pain and flies off, with Pigkey on its back. Feeling the weight of the Pig Monkey on its back, Swellow begins flying with sporadic movements hoping to shake her off.

    You've started out pretty well against the trio of Swellow. Rukia is sitting pretty as she has taken the least amount of damage; plus she used the least amount of energy. Osage took some damage, but he is by no means hurting. He has used the most energy though, but again, he's still doing well. Pigkey also took a little damage and used a some energy as well. She's pretty much right in the middle, even if she's flying high. As for the Swellow, Osage's Swellow easily took the most damage from those ice attacks, and due to the Sky Attack it's planning, it's using the most energy. Rukia's Swellow took the least amount of damage, if only because one attack connected. Its energy usage, though low, was not as low as Pigkey's. Speaking of which, Pigkey's Swello took quite a bit of damage.

    What will you do?

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


    myahoo: Once the pair of love-Pidove flew off, the remaining Pidove seemed to have shifted gears immediately. He went right for Wings, and put it to sleep. Without another fresh Pokemon to use Chloe was out of options. You asked Wildfire to talk to the Pidove about why he did this. He walked over, not ready for a battle, and he began to speak.

    The Pidove squeaked and cooed back, and at one point, it looked like he was crying a little. The tone of the Pidove changed once again, as it began to get angry. Squawking quite angrily, the Pidove taunted Wildfire, and he fell for it. Wildfire ignored your first instruction of a Smokescreen, and quickly, he leapt at the Tiny Pigeon. The attack knocked Pidove off his feet, but he immediately took flight. Pidove began to flap his wings causing some strong gusts to blow at Wildfire. He braced himself for the winds, and luckily he wasn't hurt too much.

    "It would have been nice to know why that Pidove attacked Wings," Chloe remarked. "I have my ideas but still." She watched the battle beginning while holding her Staravia in her arms, who was still sleeping soundly. "The effects of that Taunt should wear off soon, but in the middle of battle I don't think we should pester Wildfire."

    Pidove, meanwhile, flapped its wings fiercely generating some strong wind. What was he up to? It seems you have no choice now.

    What will you do?

    ~Posy Field~
    OkikuMew: You feel a sense of relief as you observe the pile of bandages when you hear the muffled panting and whimpering. Before you could act on that, though, some large piles of leaves attack. When they launch another round of Razor Leaf, you react quickly enough. Omen floats between you and the racing leaves, and he faces the leaves and begins to spin quickly. The wind generated blows through the leaves causing them to stop spinning so rapidly, and they slowly, ominously fall to the ground.

    The Swadloon on the left, looking to make quick work of you all, shoots some string at you. Himiko intervenes and with her blue-glowing eyes, she sends out a small telekinetic wave towards the Swadloon. The wave envelops the String Shot, and much to Swadloon's confusion the string strikes it in the face. In retaliation, you see that Swadloon's eyes glowing a light green, but you don't notice an attack. Swadloon actually causes a few blades of grass to tie together in a knot and sweep Himiko off her feet.

    After seeing its and its friends' Razor Leaf attack get disrupted by Omen, the Swadloon in the middle angrily launches another attack. Its antennae glow and an orb of grass energy forms by its open mouth. Swadloon launches the ball of energy at Omen causing some damage to the Puppet Pokemon.

    Not to be outdone by its allies, the Swadloon, once again, launches some razor-sharp leaves at Spi. Your little Natu dodges them all, though, as he is on a mission to climb the tree. When he gets close enough to the Swadloon, he begins to peck the Leaf-Wrapped Pokemon repeatedly until finally it erects a barrier to protect it from further damage.

    Meanwhile, the middle Swadloon raises part of its leaf cloak up to its mouth, and it begins to blow on the glowing leaf like a whistle made of grass causing waves of musical notes to float in a swaying motion towards all of you. Being the closest, Spi feels the effects immediately, and he is put to sleep.

    Omen took the most damage on your team, followed by Himiko. Spi didn't take any. Omen used a touch more energy than Himiko deflecting three sets of leaves, but neither of them are in any danger of a blackout just yet. As for the Swadloon, Spi's Swadloon easily took the most damage from that super super-effective attack, and it used the most energy. Himiko's Swadloon took some damage, and Omen's didn't take any. Himiko's Swadloon is, again, in the middle in terms of energy usage, followed by Omen's Swadloon.

    What will you do?

    The Mystic Jungle
    ~Forgotten Ruins~

    Allishinca: At the end of a tunnel unexpectedly at an exit, you wondered whether or not to leave. Before you could continue your train of thought, Beheeyem appeared asking what you're doing. When you explained that the other path was blocked, the Guardian immediately disappeared to rectify things. Satisfied Pluto made to walk back down the hall, but you waffled a little. After some prodding from the Darkness Pokemon, you got on your feet and started walking back.

    To pass the time, you take out your panpipes and begin to play some melancholy music. After a few moments, Beheeyem snaps into view. "I thought it was you playing that lovely tune," it says. Beheeyem feet tap the floor alternately to the beat of your song. "Just as I was about to move that boulder, I heard some music; and I thought at first angels were about to visit me. But then I realized, or at least I hoped, I wasn't dying, so my next guess was you. So glad I was to find you are the source of this delightful music, because dying is just not convenient for me at the moment." Beheeyem looks at Pluto. "Doesn't it just make you want to dance?" At this point, you stop playing your panpipes, and the Guardian also stops tapping the floor. "You're almost there," it says. "Then you'll get another riddle."

    It would be around this time, you have come to expect Beheeyem to disappear again, but it hasn't yet. It trots along by your side, bouncing on either of its little feet. The way Beheeyem moves oddly reminds you of a bell. With some more time passing, you and Pluto, along with Guardian Beheeyem finally reach the fork in the tunnel. The boulder has yet to be moved.

    "Didn't I just come back here to move this?" Beheyeem thinks out loud. "That's right, the music." Beheeyem steps forward. Both of its round green eyes and the pattern on its head begin to glow. Then the boulder begins to glow a light blue. The boulder slowly lifts off the ground. "Please stay behind me. It's awfully heavy, and I would appreciate not having any distractions." The boulder is slowly floating through the air now as it moves towards the tunnel leading to the fiery room. The boulder drops suddenly, but at least the path going forward is now open. "I don't remember that being so heavy," Beheeyem says between breaths. It sits on the floor. "Go on ahead. I promise you will not find another boulder in the way; I don't think I could take it if there were."

    With the Guardian recovering, you move on down the hallway. You find the torches on the wall are already lit. It seems the torches knew which way you should have gone all along. From behind you, you can hear some clicking sounds. It has to have been Beheeyem teleporting away, because suddenly it stops. You notice, like before, the air is starting to change. It feels like it's getting colder. A cool wind blows by, not extinguishing the torches, but still a bit colder than expected for such a location. Up ahead you can see a bright white light. As you approach it, you feel another wave of cold air, chilling you both a little more now. Moments from the room now, you notice the torches and the torch holders had what appears to be icicles on them, at least where there weren't flames.

    You enter the room now, and much to your amazement, you see it's filled with snow. As you move around inside the room, you find that instead of the floor being wet and slippery, it isn't. The room is colder and more windy than the other rooms, much colder than the fiery room and rightfully so.

    Ahead of you between the two central torches is Beheeyem. "Ahh there you are," Beheeyem says. "You must be wondering how all this snow got in there, right? Well," it pauses, "it did." Beheeyem clears its throat. "Don't panic. It won't get any colder in here, nor will there be another snowstorm. I believe the next one is due on the night of the next blue moon. Can you believe that? A blue moon! Who ever heard of such a thing? Right, now for a riddle. Let's see...

    What's in a name
    when I consume the same?
    Find me in a mine
    having a good time
    while I produce my internal flames.

    Good luck." Beheeyem snaps away. It suddenly snaps back in front of you. "If the wind is too much," Beheeyem shivers a little, "please stand between the torches. They generate an awful lot of heat. Oh, and, you know the drill." Beheeyem quickly vanishes again.

    What will you do?

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

    ~Waterfall Valley~

    Myrrh: You and Aubrey begin to follow the footprints leading out of his camp. Volts is by your side, and Aubrey's Masquerain flutters by. You couldn't help but notice that Masquerain looks worried. "You see, Masquerain was my first capture, well as a Surskit," Aubrey says while you're walking. "She adapted very well to being a contest performer. Eventually, I woke up one morning, and I found that she had laid an egg. The egg hatched into my Surskit."

    The two of you push through the surrounding brush some more. Aubrey keeps his eye on the ground to make sure you're both following the footprints. It seems you're passing along the river, the same one that ends at the pond where you caught Surskit. The sense of urgency seems to show through as you hasten through the woods. You aren't even able to enjoy along the way. "He may know some strong contest moves, but he's still young," Aubrey says, breaking the silence. Now you were starting to get worried despite only meeting him just hours ago. Aubrey trips on an exposed rock; clearly his mind is elsewhere. You run up to help him back on his feet, and he says, "Who would steal someone's Pokemon? Especially right under someone else's nose?"

    You're both side by side walking now, both keeping an eye on the footprints and what's ahead of you. Aubrey keeps turning to say something to you, taking a breath to start speaking, but he doesn't. After a couple times, he finally says, "My Ursaring. I told you I would tell you about him. When I was traveling through the Hoenn region, for contests, I came across a rather unique store in Slateport City. It was a Pokemon Boutique of sorts. I went inside, intrigued, and I was amazed at what they could do. The owner had developed these pills that when taken will dye a Pokemon's skin, fur, and so on a different color. Now I'm sure you've heard stories about alternate-colored Pokemon. The idea is similar; however, with these pills it makes the recoloring look aritifical and slightly monotone. After hearing about this, I thought it would be cool to have my Ursaring, who was a Teddiursa at the time, become more like a black bear. Amazingly it only took one pill to achieve this look; and I don't know if you noticed, but his snout and the ring on him changed to a grey color. I have a few others on me, as a matter of fact, in case I want to recolor anything else I catch." For a moment, while Aubrey was speaking, you can see he's relaxed a little. He even smiles once or twice. The explanation seems to have preoccupied him into not worrying about his Surskit. The same cannot be said for Masquerain, though. The Eyeball Pokemon flutters all over looking from side to side for her captured child.

    All of a sudden, you hear some cackling coming from up ahead of you both, in the direction of the footprints. You hasten your steps towards the feminine sound of the laughing. Up through the treetops, you can barely see it, but there is some smoke also billowing through the branches and leaves. As you get closer, Aubrey steps off the path to approach the camp in secrecy. "We've got to keep our voices down," he says almost whispering. "I don't know who we're up against, or even if they took my Surskit." Masquerain lands on his head and glares forward. You reach the outlying border of the new camp. Luckily there are some thick bushes to hide behind. You stick your hands through the bush in order to clear open some space. You now peek through the bushes, and soon enough you see it. On the far end of the camp, in a small cage is a Surskit looking sad and scared. Masquerain must have also seen it, because she begins to stir. "Calm down Masquerain," Aubrey sternly whispers now spotting the caged Pond Skater. "We will get Surskit back." After another quick survey of the area, Aubrey quietly stands up. He has a look of determination on his face, but you still do not know whom you are up against.

    You wonder if you should stop him, for a moment, in order to collect some information.

    What will you do?

    Okiku's brain went on overload as she tried to evaluate the situation of the battle. It was her first 3-on-3 battle, after all, and there's quite a lot of action.

    Poor Omenya get hit quite a bit by that Energy Ball and so did Himiko by being tripped over by those blades of grass, but the two were far from being knocked out. Spi on the other hand actually showed a lot of skills to Okiku's surprise, have skillfully dodged an attack, but unfortunately he fell asleep.

    After some quick thinking, she yelled out her next orders:

    "Omen, use Ominous Wind again but concentrate it on the one Spi attacked! Himi, if that Swadloon is not out after Omen's attack, Tackle him down! If he does faint, target the one you've hit earlier instead! And in either way, try to make the Swadloon you attack hit another; Hit two, uh, bugs with one stone, you know?"

    As for her sleeping Natu, well she knew he was quite an Early Bird and would wake up quickly, but she estimated it wouldn't be fast enough to react against an upcoming attack. However, she also knew how to wake him up even faster: Playing her Blue Flute she got at a party, which she was very happy to have kept it for her travels. She didn't know how to exactly play it though, being the first time she put her lips on it, so she simply did her best as she could to blow into it and try to replicate a cheerful tune she heard before by ear.

    While she played, she thought that she won't have enough time to call out Spi's moves after he wakes up, so she hoped that her little bird would wake up just in time to dodge attacks like a boss again.

"She adapted very well to being a contest performer. Eventually, I woke up one morning, and I found that she had laid an egg. The egg hatched into my Surskit."

    The two of you push through the surrounding brush some more. Aubrey keeps his eye on the ground to make sure you're both following the footprints. It seems you're passing along the river, the same one that ends at the pond where you caught Surskit. The sense of urgency seems to show through as you hasten through the woods. You aren't even able to enjoy along the way. "He may know some strong contest moves, but he's still young," Aubrey says, breaking the silence. Now you were starting to get worried despite only meeting him just hours ago. Aubrey trips on an exposed rock; clearly his mind is elsewhere. You run up to help him back on his feet, and he says, "Who would steal someone's Pokemon? Especially right under someone else's nose?"

    You're both side by side walking now, both keeping an eye on the footprints and what's ahead of you. Aubrey keeps turning to say something to you, taking a breath to start speaking, but he doesn't. After a couple times, he finally says, "My Ursaring. I told you I would tell you about him. When I was traveling through the Hoenn region, for contests, I came across a rather unique store in Slateport City. It was a Pokemon Boutique of sorts. I went inside, intrigued, and I was amazed at what they could do. The owner had developed these pills that when taken will dye a Pokemon's skin, fur, and so on a different color. Now I'm sure you've heard stories about alternate-colored Pokemon. The idea is similar; however, with these pills it makes the recoloring look aritifical and slightly monotone. After hearing about this, I thought it would be cool to have my Ursaring, who was a Teddiursa at the time, become more like a black bear. Amazingly it only took one pill to achieve this look; and I don't know if you noticed, but his snout and the ring on him changed to a grey color. I have a few others on me, as a matter of fact, in case I want to recolor anything else I catch." For a moment, while Aubrey was speaking, you can see he's relaxed a little. He even smiles once or twice. The explanation seems to have preoccupied him into not worrying about his Surskit. The same cannot be said for Masquerain, though. The Eyeball Pokemon flutters all over looking from side to side for her captured child.

    All of a sudden, you hear some cackling coming from up ahead of you both, in the direction of the footprints. You hasten your steps towards the feminine sound of the laughing. Up through the treetops, you can barely see it, but there is some smoke also billowing through the branches and leaves. As you get closer, Aubrey steps off the path to approach the camp in secrecy. "We've got to keep our voices down," he says almost whispering. "I don't know who we're up against, or even if they took my Surskit." Masquerain lands on his head and glares forward. You reach the outlying border of the new camp. Luckily there are some thick bushes to hide behind. You stick your hands through the bush in order to clear open some space. You now peek through the bushes, and soon enough you see it. On the far end of the camp, in a small cage is a Surskit looking sad and scared. Masquerain must have also seen it, because she begins to stir. "Calm down Masquerain," Aubrey sternly whispers now spotting the caged Pond Skater. "We will get Surskit back." After another quick survey of the area, Aubrey quietly stands up. He has a look of determination on his face, but you still do not know whom you are up against.

    You wonder if you should stop him, for a moment, in order to collect some information.

    What will you do?
    Myrrh and Aubrey were on the trail searching for the missing Surskit. As they walked, Aubrey told Myrrh a little bit about his two Pokemon. As interesting as their backstory was for Myrrh, reminiscing about his two Pokemon only seemed to make Aubrey more concerned. Myrrh noticed how concerned Aubrey was becoming, and when Aubrey tripped on a rock and seemed to reach an all time low in moral, Myrrh found that he could not do much to comfort him. Myrrh didn't say much during the search, but he too was concerned and worried, and hoped that Aubrey could see that.

    Things got a little better when Aubrey told Myrrh about his Black Ursaring. Myrrh was intrigued by all of it, he never imagined that such a place and service would exist and thought it was rather cool that trainers and their Pokemon could agree on a more unique look. Despite the interest he showed earlier, Volts didn't seem all that fazed by Aubrey's reveal about the pills. He wasn't disappointed or anything, but he was hoping that Ursaring's coloration was something more rare or something. He too thought it was rather neat though. Myrrh didn't want to press the matter as he felt it wasn't the right time to do so. There would hopefully be time for that later when they find his Surskit.

    Finally they take notice of some cackling and decide to find its source. Volts didn't seem to like the laughter much at all and covered his ears as he heard it. It was a woman's voice, it seemed, they followed it to find a sort of camp. But there was no sign of the source of the laughter. Myrrh and Aubrey get closer so they can get a closer look, taking cover using thick shrubs and bushes. "We've got to keep our voices down," Aubrey says almost whispering. "I don't know who we're up against, or even if they took my Surskit." "Yeah sure." Myrrh replies. They creep closer, moving bushes in their way carefully so they can advance and get a better look. That's when they see it, Aubrey's Surskit, all alone in a cage. Aubrey and his Masquerain begin to stir and look as if they are going to take action. "Hold on!" said Myrrh in a sharp whisper. "I know we're really close but we shouldn't act just yet. We heard a woman laughing right? We haven't even seen her yet, plus she might not be alone. I say we wait here for a little while longer so that we can find out what we might be up against. If it seems like Surskit might be in danger all of a sudden we can come right out to try and stop it. What do you say?"

    Celebii151: With the impending threat of attacks from Team Plasma Dr. Astrid recruits you to help defend the Research Center. "That's wonderful of you to help," she responds to you. Suddenly she stops running. She turns around to face the trees once again. "Primeape! I beg of you to protect the Pokémon here if you see any Team Plasma member in here!" She continues running until the both of you are at the door leading into the Center. "We're at the entrance to the Research Center. Once we enter I'll seal this door shut, so no one from Team Plasma can get in to the Pokémon play area." She watches you, Nahkriin, and her Magneton enter, and she follows. The door closes, and she enters a code on the number pad near it to seal it shut. "There. By the way, your Druddigon is very impressive. She'll be a big help. The East Wing is this way. Please follow me," she motions with her arm showing you the way.

    "Just so you know what you're fighting for," Astrid begins to speak as you both hasten down the hall towards the East Wing, "this lab does test on Pokémon. Without going into too much detail, we test remedies on Pokémon that are made more naturally. The normal remedies; Antidotes, Burn Heals, and others; are manmade. While they work perfectly fine, we are looking for something more natural, especially in areas like the Unova region where berries normally are not found. We're testing new remedies made from berries that cure the same ailments. Regrettably the only real way to test these remedies is to cause the ailments Poison, Paralyze, Burn, Freeze, and Sleep. Other than that the lab is completely safe. There are dozens of Pokémon doctors on hand on any given day, so that if anything does go wrong help is not far away at all.”

    The pair and their Pokémon reach a closed door. “As you’ve probably guessed,” Astrid continues, “Team Plasma doesn’t like that the Pokémon are inflicted with the different conditions. Normally they protest and question the employees of the Research Center. I don’t know why they are attacking. They should know this is causing unnecessary stress on the monkey Pokémon.” She begins to enter her security code to open the door. “This is the entrance to the East Wing. There’s another short hallway, and then there’s the cafeteria. There are a few offices along the way. I just want to investigate them to make sure they’re secure.” The door opens. Astrid and Magneton enter the hallway and begin checking out rooms. You happen to peek through an office window to see an impeccably clean office.

    All of a sudden you both hear an explosion coming from not too far from you. “They must be in the cafeteria!” You both race to the door to the cafeteria. “Please be careful, both of you,” she warns you as she opens the door.

    You look inside to see utter chaos. Along the back wall you see people in black and grey uniforms with shield emblems on their chest along with their Pokémon. They’re all short bladed red Pokémon with a large blade on their head, which also resembles a helmet. All of their Pawniard are attacking the doctors’ and researchers’ own Pokémon in front of you. As you and Nahkriin and Astrid and Magneton enter the cafeteria the doctors and researchers notice you all, and most of them gasp at Nahkriin. Astrid and Magneton run in and lend a hand, or magnet, “Magneton hold them in place with Thunder Wave!” Tendrils of electricity emit from the magnets of the Magnet Pokémon and grab onto three of the Pawniard holding them in place.

    “Machop, Karate Chop that Pawniard!” you hear a researcher say.

    “Go Hitmonlee, use Rolling Kick!” another researcher orders.

    “Elekid, use Cross Chop on the other one!” a doctor orders.

    You watch the three Pokémon attack the paralyzed Pawniard, and one by one easily they fall.

    “You with Dr. Astrid?” you hear a man ask you. “I’m Joshua her assistant. Thanks for helping us! And sorry for dragging you into this mess at the same time.” Joshua jumps out of the way of an advancing Pawniard. “Electrode, use Rollout!” A large red and white spherical Pokémon rolls by knocking it over.

    Suddenly, four Pawniard rush Joshua and Electrode, overwhelming the Ball Pokémon. One of the Pawniard, however, pays for its assault by becoming paralyzed by Electrode’s Static ability. “If you don’t mind, Electrode and I could use a hand here,” Joshua calls out. Now might be good time to lend a hand, or claw.

    What will you do?
    Team Plasma made quite an unexpected and unpleasant entrance to this research facility, attacking the East Wing. However, they did not account for a Pokemon Trainer being on the premises while they invaded. Astrid pleads with the Primeape, telling them to attack any Team Plasma members they see, before taking Cele and Nahkriin and running in pursuit of Team Plasma. On the way, she compliments Nahkriin, calling her impressive, earning Astrid a prideful roar. "Thanks." Cele answers. Astrid then explains what exactly it is that they research at the facility and why Team Plasma is against it. "I'm kinda 50-50 on this one, Astrid, but Team Plasma cares nothing about Pokemon, so I'm willing to help defeat them." Cele responds.

    The quartet of Astrid, Magneton, Cele and Nahkriin enter the cafeteria, coming across a group of people who Cele recognizes as Team Plasma. They are armed with Pawniard, a fitting Pokemon for ones such as them. The scientists are fighting back with their own Pokemon, including Machop, Elekid and Hitmonlee. Cele whips out his Pokedex and scans the Pawniard. The device comes to life. "Pawniard, the Sharp Blade Pokémon. Ignoring their injuries, groups attack by sinking the blades that cover their bodies into their prey." "Yikes, that a fierce species." Cele comments. Just then, Astrid's Magneton paralyzes a lot of them with Thunder Wave, allowing them to be knocked out by a barrage of Fighting Moves. Joshua, Astrid's assistant introduces himself to Cele. "I'm Cele." Cele says as Joshua's Electrode bowls over a Pawniard, then overwhelmed by a group of Pawniard, leaving one paralyzed thanks to Static. The Pokedex is pointed at Electrode and activated. "Electrode, the Ball Pokémon. It is known to drift on winds if it is bloated to bursting with stored electricity."

    "Okay, Nahkriin, let's get this show on the road!" Cele yells. "Focus Blast that paralyzed Pawniard, then hit another one with FlameThrower! Make sure not to set anything on fire!" He pulls a Pokeball from his belt, releasing the Pokemon from its capsule. An Aron appears. "Larry, hit those Pawniard with a couple of Flame Charges!" Cele orders.

    The Divine Woodland


    Diamond Lake

    Meetan

    While you were trying to rescue a Surskit from its fever, another Pokemon was in dire straits as the Swellow you battled just got snatched up by something, and whatever it was left a pawprint behind. Perhaps it was a predator that found an opportunity for a free meal? Anyway, you had your little porker try to get the scent of the perp, and thankfully the good little Odor Sleuth was soon hot on the trail as he scurries off toward the forest close by. You didn’t want him to lose the scent, but suddenly the ranger’s phone started ringing. “Ranger Kellogg. … What!? Are you sure!? I’ll be there right away!” He hangs up and then speaks to you trying to make you feel at ease, but you could sense the urgency in his voice: “I’m sorry, I’d like to help you track down whatever it was that took Swellow, but something came up, and I’m needed back at the station. Good luck, though!” And with that, he ran back down the trail he came from while you run after Swinub in an effort to catch up to him.

    Soon after you catch up, however, he seems confused. Seems like the enemy was pretty crafty and hid their trail in the tall grass you found yourself in. Since he could no longer find the enemy’s scent, you ask him to try finding Swellow’s scent. It may have been a familiar scent, but he didn’t find it immediately. You try moving out of the tall grass, and it seems he can pick up a faint scent, but he doesn’t seem too sure of it. As you move closer, he’s still not sure yet, but closer … closer … Swinub suddenly points toward the trees again, and you move with haste until you are able to pick out something in one of the taller trees and stop yourself. Swinub confirms that the scent is leading toward the tree and you creep slower and slower towards that tree. On one of the branches, you eventually identify the scene as a Persian sitting there with its paws over Swellow’s limp wing. Looking closer, you could see the puma licking the bird’s body, pulling feathers out, and is about to take a bite into Swellow’s chest when it suddenly looks in your direction and gives you a low, deadly Growl. Oh dear, intruder alert indeed

    What will Alice do?
    Alice followed her Swinub, who seemed to have caught some sort of scent. He was confident that it was the predator in question, and they were doing well until the long grass threw the ice piggy off. However, not even that could deter her starter, who pursued a different track instead.

    "What kind of Ranger is that, abandoning the mission like this? What an ***." She remarked nastily under her breath, unaware that there were probably other forces behind the cereal-named patrol leaving the pair of them to handle the Swellow-napper. Swinub called out to get her attention back, and the girl's blue eyes turned beyond the brush.

    A Persian had Swellow in its clutches, ready to take a chunk from its flesh and end the bird's life. The growl was intimidating, but she wasn't deterred. "Swinub, you took a beating from that Swellow. No offence, buddy, but I want you to step back. This is a life and death situation here." She told her partner, who was reluctant, but nodded his little round body all the same.

    The young girl pulled one of the many pink and white spheres from her bag, expanding the size before tossing it forth. From the red light a Bagon appeared, but unlike most of its species, its body consisted of different shades of black rather than grey or blue. He glanced back at his trainer with wary irritation before locking angry eyes on the enemy.

    "Bagon, I know you hate me right now, but if you need to lash out at anything, go for the Persian!" Alice pleaded, "Use your Hydro Pump to blast it away, then Dragon Rush and a close up Thunderbolt!"

    ((Stats, yo.))

    As a mother Linoone with a sufficiently pressed Berserk Button was just about to break through the wooden door that separated you from your worst imaginations at that point coming true, you quickly try to throw a Pokeball at the Zigzagoon you just defeated. Fortunately, the Pokeball hits its mark, engulfs the raccoon, and, after only one shake, pinged to signify the capture was complete. But you couldn’t celebrate just yet! You tell the Squirtleman you achieved success as you pick up the now occupied Monster Ball, to which he hollered with a whoop afterward: “Ya got ‘im!? Whoo, rookie knows his stuff!”

    “All right, Shiro!” Louie chimes in. “You just stand back now, we’ll try ‘n git the mama to come away from there!”

    “Wait, Louie! She’s coming back yer way, I’m on her!” Ah, maybe she couldn’t smell her baby anymore and was heading back towards the living room to protect the other two? If so, now was your chance! You hurriedly call back all of your Pokemon, open the wooden door, and bolt for the front door. Quickly closing it behind you, you suddenly feel safe as you could now let the professionals handle the rest. “What’s goin’ on ‘n there?” the old lady outside asks you. You take another look at the Pokeball holding your newly obtained Lv. 5 Male Zigzagoon … and just sigh in relief.

    After about ten minutes of snarling and shouting, Squirtleman’s trademark whoop could be heard. “Mama Line in the Squirtle Ball!” Not long after, you could hear the babies get captured. Team Squirtle emerges victorious, and Carla looks almost as relieved as you were. “My gosh, what happened?”

    “Well, had a whole family a’ Zigzagoon in your place! But we got ‘em, we’ll make sure ‘n release ‘em ‘n everything in a safer place for ‘em!”

    “Wow, I am so grateful to you, now Riley won’t have to use his shotgun!”

    “Hmph!” he grunted, not really looking like he cared one way or the other. As Carla pays the Squirtle Team the reward, including some of her famous Cheri Pie, Squirtleman leaves with a whoop and a “Squirtleman out!” He then looks to you and says, “Ya did great there! You deserve a share of our reward!” before handing you a small bag with 500 coins and a Cheri Berry. “So, you ready fer our next job?”

    {All right, so you now have yourself a cute Zigzagoon! Expect to see something from Lilblue soon! First, make sure you claim the little guy in your reply before adding him to your party (and make sure you do the same thing for the items too). Second, provide a link to said reply when posting in the Egg House to collect your first egg, and you’ll have permanent access to the Egg House!}

    What will Shiro do?


    As he threw the ball, Shiro was spectical, would this really work? Just then the pokeball shook once, and the Zigzagoon was permanently caught inside it.
    "I-it succeeded? Yes!" Shiro shouted, and danced a little, humoring his pokemon.
    "The baby is secured inside a pokeball!" Shiro continued, hoping for the Squirtleman to pick this up.
    "Ya got 'im!? Whoo, rookie knows his stuff!" Squirtleman hollered back.
    "All right, Shiro! You just stand back now, we'll try'n git the mama to come away from there!" Louie chimed.

    Shiro was just about to take another glance at his new mate, but suddenly the mama 'goon ran away somewhere, creating an opportunity to get away from the basement. Shiro quickly called his pokemon and ran for the exit. He wanted to get outside the house as soon as possible, still fearing the mama 'goon.

    As soon as Shiro got outside the house, the old lady asked him something. Shiro, however, had all his attention caught in looking at his new team mate, so he didn't hear the question at all. He hoped little 'goon wouldn't be a rebel, and that it would get along with his new team.

    After the rewards were shared, Shiro glanced at his money bag gleefully, though the fact that he only got a berry out of the whole Cheri Pie made him a little confused, almost missing the Squirtleman's question.
    "So, you ready fer our next job?"
    "Sure, I have all the time of the world on my hands. I just hope we won't encounter any more angry mothers...!" Shiro said, expressing the end of the sentence with a little fright in his voice.

    Still in hot pursuit of a Beedrill swarm, you start to wonder if the Beedrill will get away with your friends. Fortunately, there was a shiny Numel in front of them, ready for action: Chad’s Numel. Chad calls out to Heracross so he could rejoin the group, though it wasn’t likely he’d be seen for a little while, so until then you had to make do with what you had. Fortunately, Joshua’s birds were ready to chase the swarm down and rescue their buddy Steven. Cloudy, the Swablu Joshua just sent out, was in tip-top form, and he’d be in even better shape now that he had increased his Agility and was bearing down on the kidnappers with a huge boost to his Speed. While Bishop made an effort to keep up with the younger avian, Aegis started frothing at the mouth before spitting at the Beedrill holding Teddiursa, and the Bubbles popped against its carapace causing a little damage but not nearly enough needed to force the bee to drop the bear cub. Just then the Beedrill were starting to fly past Chad’s Numel ignoring him, but as he gave a huge Yawn pink bubbles started to float towards the three Beedrill in the back of the swarm. Two of the Beedrill manage to fly out of the way, but the one holding Teddiursa flew straight into the sleep-inducing attack, forcing it and Teddiursa to get drowsy. This set the Beedrill up for Quagsire’s Mud Bomb as he spit out the attack and made it arc right over to the bee causing it to explode above it, weighing down its wings even further.

    Now it was the birds’ turn to try to rescue some Pokemon. Showing off some Acrobatic skill, Cloudy rises up before swooping in with lightning speed to ram the Beedrill hard, and no item means the attack does massive damage and more importantly causes the Beedrill to drop Steven, who Cloudy deftly snatches away from the swarm before bringing the unconscious Munna back to Steven’s safe arms, then flies back to help out with Karrablast. Bishop tries to get close and unleashes an Air Slash, but the Beedrill holding Karrablast flies out of the way at the very last second. What a waste, and now Bishop was seriously getting exhausted, so there was the risk he might not be able to do much else to rescue Karrablast. At least Cloudy was on his tail! Anyway, Aegis then shoots a Water Gun which hits the Beedrill holding Teddiursa for some damage, but it does wash off some of the mud on the Beedrill, so it wasn’t weighed down as much. Quagsire also shoots a Water attack, but this one is just as Scalding hot as his last Water attack. And this one causes some lasting burns on its back, so it certainly wasn't drowsy anymore, but its grip on Teddiursa seriously slackens, though it was still barely holding on to the bear cub despite its struggling. Suddenly, you start to hear another sound of buzzing, and as you run, you look back to see Heracross flying straight towards the swarm, and catching up to you, so you had him too. You had successfully rescued Steven, but Teddiursa and Karrablast were still in trouble, and if you didn’t get them soon, the swarm would get away with their prizes!

    What will Chad and Joshua do?

He also watched as Joshua was able to rescue Steven. 'Finally, we're making progress,' Chad thought to himself. 'Now to get Teddiursa and Karrablast back.'

    Chad saw how Joshua's birds handled the Beedrill. "If Heracross was back, he could catch up quicker than we can," Chad said as he and Joshua continued to chase the Beedrill. "Aegis, maybe you should take a rest, unless Joshua has a different idea in mind for you. Thank you for your help." Chad thought about how the Mud Bomb attack seemed to be effective. "Quagsire, use Mud Bomb again on the Beedrill holding Teddiursa! If you can get close enough, try a Mud Shot! Numel, try Yawn again on the Beedrill holding Karrablast!" Chad figured if the attacks wouldn't cause the Beedrill to release their prisoners, maybe they could slow them down enough to catch up and take care of things themselves. "Teddiursa, see if you can struggle yourself free!"

    Chad watched Quagsire and Numel and Cloudy and Bishop all carry out their trainers' commands. The incessant buzzing, which was previously dying down as the other Beedrill escaped, began getting louder once again. Instinctively, Chad turned around to see where the buzzing was coming from. To his surprise he saw his Heracross returning to the fray. "Heracross! You're just in time." Once he noticed Numel was done with his attacks, he took out Numel's Rocket Ball and aimed it at the Numb Pokemon. "Numel return to your Pokeball." The red capture beam enveloped Numel, and he disappeared into the ball. "Thank you for your hard work! Heracross, Aerial Ace on the Beedrill with Teddiursa!" Heracross flew off to attack. "Catch Teddiursa if it drops her!"


    Cloudy once again managed to prove his skills as the better flier on Joshua's team, zipping towards the first Beedrill and knocking it around with his brilliant Acrobatics. With a few quick moves, Steven was free, and the Swablu carried him back to his trainer. Joshua quickly recalled him to his Pokéball, in order to protect him from further shenanigans. Unfortunately, Bishop once again failed to connect with his Air Slash, meaning the Karrablast was still in danger, but this could be dealt with. He hoped.

    Meanwhile, Chad had managed to rescue his Numel, and was turning his fire on the Beedrill clutching the Teddiursa. So it seemed he couldn't expect much help there, but at least the other Beedrill was being dealt with. Abduction was hardly something they could permit. Still, it raised the question - why exactly were the enemy Beedrill taking hostages? It didn't make much sense. The captured Pokémon were too small to be used as shields after all... He was almost half tempted to let it continue, just to find out what it was all for. But morally speaking, that was slightly disgraceful. Time for a different approach.

    "Bishop, let's use your psychic abilities - use Extrasensory and then Confusion to try to slow the Beedrill carrying Karrablast. Cloudy, you use Agility to get up close and then hit him hard with a Take Down - that should make him drop Karrablast!

The metallic sound rips through the four of you, but Yanmega seems to be most affected by it. The Ogre Darner pauses briefly before its glowing wings prepare to slice the air to create a blade of air to slash Gaspard.

    Gaspard, meanwhile, works himself up to attack more effectively. He charges at Yanmega with his tail fist charged with fire. As he was just about to punch Yanmega, you're all assaulted, once more, by another loud, screeching, metallic sound. You and Gaspard both grasp your ears seeking any form of comfort from the sound. Humphrey and Yanmega, not having hands, both tense up closing their eyes taking the sound hoping it would go away soon.

    When the sound finally ceases, you look around for the source. From behind some trees, an elderly woman appears. "Are you alright child?" she asks. From behind her, a large metallic Pokemon appears. The Pokemon with large plates of metal all over its body with two large horns stands beside her. "I heard Yanmega was around, so I had my Aggron scare it off. That Yanmega has been causing problems for the longest time, but it doesn't appear to enjoy the sound of Aggron's Metal Sound." It seems to have worked, because when you look back, you see the giant Yanmega turn around and fly off very quickly after seeing the lady's Aggron. She walks over to Humphrey, and pats his head. "My, what a beautifully unique Boldore," she comments. "While I don't agree with your choice of using your Pokemon to absorb attacks, I commend you for choosing a strong Rock-type. My name is Cecilia." She notices your camera. "I have a cabin near here. You're welcome to come back and rest a bit."

    Cecilia seems to have saved you from a tough battle, and Humphrey gained a fan. Whether or not that's a good thing in your opinion, you do have an offer for some rest. What will you do?
    As the battle against the Yanmega continues, a loud metallic noise interrupts Gaspard's attack on the Yanmega and quickly covered his ears. Connor did so as well however Humphrey and the Yanmega had to endure the noise, having no means to cover their ears. "Agh, what's that noise?!" Connor cried out as the Yanmega suddenly turned back and fled, as if it saw something that terrified it.

    "It stopped..." the sound had finally been gone after some time and Connor and Gaspard had uncovered their ears. "Are you alright child?" a voice then called out to him and the photographer turned around to see an elderly woman and her Aggron approaching him. "An Aggron? Wow..." he then brought out his Pokedex to scan the Aggron.

    "That noise... it must have come from this Aggron," he quietly said. "I heard Yanmega was around, so I had my Aggron scare it off. That Yanmega has been causing problems for the longest time, but it doesn't appear to enjoy the sound of Aggron's Metal Sound." she said to him as if confirming his thought. Connor, Gaspard, and Humphrey only then had realized that the Yanmega was gone. "Huh? Where did it go?" he wondered as he looked around to see no signs of the Ogre Darner Pokemon. "It's gone..." the woman then approached Humphrey, "My, what a beautifully unique Boldore," she comments. "While I don't agree with your choice of using your Pokemon to absorb attacks, I commend you for choosing a strong Rock-type. My name is Cecilia." Connor sighs, "I know. It's not something I usually use as a tactic either and as much as possible, I want to avoid doing that... thanks for the latter though madam! I'm sure Humphrey over appreciates the comment though he doesn't it," Connor and Gaspard, who was sitting on top of Humphrey, smiled at her. "My name's Connor. Connor Connelly! It's very nice to meet you," he then notices her staring at his camera, "Oh this? I'm a photographer you see. I came here to practice my photography skills and take some photos of the place," he explained to her. "Oh and thank you for saving us from earlier! I appreciate it so much," he bowed down in respect.

    Connor then remembered something regarding the Yanmega, "Actually, now that I think about it there's something that bothers me. About that Yanmega," he explained to her, "If that Yanmega is so strong and is known to be causing trouble here for a long time, you'd think that some hotshot trainer would want to catch it. And even if no one did, I think you could have easily captured him yourself miss Cecilia. So why is he still around when you know he's terrorizing the forest? Is he that strong that no one has managed to capture him? And not to mention its size... it's so... disturbingly big. I dunno, but I don't think that a Yanmega should ever be that big," Cecilia then invited Connor over a cabin to stay and rest for a while. "Oh, thank you for the offer miss! That battle took quite a lot from us... what do you say Gaspard, Humphrey? Shall we take a rest?" Both Pokemon nodded to him agreement, with Gaspard already lying down on top of Humphrey. "Hehe, it's settled then. Let's rest up for a while then!"

    myahoo: Once the pair of love-Pidove flew off, the remaining Pidove seemed to have shifted gears immediately. He went right for Wings, and put it to sleep. Without another fresh Pokemon to use Chloe was out of options. You asked Wildfire to talk to the Pidove about why he did this. He walked over, not ready for a battle, and he began to speak.

    The Pidove squeaked and cooed back, and at one point, it looked like he was crying a little. The tone of the Pidove changed once again, as it began to get angry. Squawking quite angrily, the Pidove taunted Wildfire, and he fell for it. Wildfire ignored your first instruction of a Smokescreen, and quickly, he leapt at the Tiny Pigeon. The attack knocked Pidove off his feet, but he immediately took flight. Pidove began to flap his wings causing some strong gusts to blow at Wildfire. He braced himself for the winds, and luckily he wasn't hurt too much.

    "It would have been nice to know why that Pidove attacked Wings," Chloe remarked. "I have my ideas but still." She watched the battle beginning while holding her Staravia in her arms, who was still sleeping soundly. "The effects of that Taunt should wear off soon, but in the middle of battle I don't think we should pester Wildfire."

    Pidove, meanwhile, flapped its wings fiercely generating some strong wind. What was he up to? It seems you have no choice now.

    What will you do?
    As the Pidove and Wildfire began to battle, Melissa couldn't help sighing before slowly setting herself back down. Oh, this is going to be fun, she grimaced silently, thinking about the dust and debris that was sure to be thrown into the air thanks to the Pidove's attacks. It'd probably be best to take the Pidove out quickly, if possible, particularly if he was only fighting because he was heartbroken.

    Melissa nodded absently at Chloe's statements. "It would have, but there's not much we can do now." She considered her starter for a moment. "Besides, it can't hurt to tell him to attack, right?" She raised her voice a little, as the Pidove began fiercely flapping his wings. "Try to cut it off with an Extrasensory. Follow up with a Naturepower and another Quick Attack." While it would have been nice to get a Wild Charge in there, she wasn't entirely sure Wildfire would be able to reach the Pidove at the moment, what with the Taunt still being in effect. Although, hopefully, they wouldn't bring the cave down with the second Naturepower, now that she thought about it...

    The Divine Woodland


    Magus Falls

    As you dismount Minori, you feel the pressure behind the battle against the Lunar Mage’s Lunatone. What if you lost? You would be stuck here forever! No, you couldn’t think like that … Thanks to your using Minori, you had a type advantage, though there was no telling what a Psychic Pokemon like Lunatone would do. All you could do was trust in your Seel and hope things worked out.

    Well, Minori was certainly going to give it his best shot as he starts off by making a big tidal wave with his tail that almost filled the entire room. As it Surfed towards Lunatone, the wave crashed into it, though it only clipped it from the side, still dealing some nice damage, and you could see the crescent-shaped Rock looking a little more Polished than it was before. Then it uses its powers to levitate a Rock in order to Throw it at Minori. He does see this coming and tries to Dive out of the way, but the boulder is faster and gets to him before he completely submerges. The Seel is able to shrug off the pain, however, and prepares to strike with an Aqua Tail by swimming underneath where the Rock-type was, but the Lunatone’s Confusion attack is able to barely divert the attack towards a wall, causing full damage to Minori in the process, though the Lunatone does take some more damage from the water splashing off the wall. Currently, Lunatone has 10% more energy than Minori, but Minori’s super-effective attacks have provided him about a 10% health advantage.

    What will Noriko do?


    With a swing of his tail, Minori brought out a wave that would make any surfer eager to give it a go before proceeding to Surf on it himself. Noriko had to grab the wall for support, the water crashing back down violently – unfortunately, Lunatone was swift in its movements, making sure to get out of the way, yet still sustaining a good deal of damage. When the wave finally disappeared, Noriko blinked a few times, trying to figure out if Minori had just managed to magically wash Lunatone in the process. The shiny surface of the Lunatone wasn’t the result of water and soap though, but a well-executed Rock Polish. Sticking to its rocky strategy, Lunatone floated a rock from beneath the water before using its Psychic capabilities to swing it at Minori with a Rock Throw. As the Seel disappeared beneath the surface to escape the rock, Noriko was suddenly very glad she’d ordered Minori to Dive – though she definitely hadn’t foreseen this event, as much as she would have loved to have been able to say she had. The rock had moved faster though, hitting Minori before the Seel had completely gone underwater, but he seemed able to recover from the pain of the impact: without wasting a second, Minori swam right beneath the floating crescent and prepared to hit it with Aqua Tail.

    Lunatone wasn’t going to stick around for the attack to hit; a purple glow surrounded Minori shortly before throwing the Seel against the wall, with Noriko admiring the timing of the Confusion-attack. The admiration was shortly overcome by a pang of fear when Minori smacked into the wall – the only good thing was the splashing water, which seemed to hurt Lunatone somewhat. Noriko ran a few steps forward, staring intently at where Minori had fallen into the water. “Minori! You okay there?”

    The Seel poked his head above the surface, evidently still in a condition to battle. He seemed pissed though, not ready to forgive the flying piece of rock for ruining such a graceful performance. Noriko took a relieved breath before digging her Pokédex out of her pocket and flipping it open: Lunatone seemed to have taken quite a bit of damage, but Minori wasn’t in the lead by much. Noriko stuck the Dex back into her pocket, to avoid dropping it in the water, before shuffling through said pocket for a mint green ribbon. Tying her hair back, not completely sure why she hadn’t done that before, Noriko tried to think of a new plan of attack. Those Psychic-attacks could be a real pain…

    “Minori, try to submerge Lunatone with another Surf, then strike with Whirlpool! Then try to freeze it underwater with Ice Beam, get that Lunatone into your turf!”

    Dead Forest


    The Burial Ground

    Marion Ette

    As your meeting with the three ghost sisters begins, you explain to Rowena and Katia what you had been doing for the past few weeks. You now had an ability which would be destructive to the minions of their older sisters, but you would need time to concentrate and get the spell ready. “So, you need a distraction, right?” said Rowena. “We know better than anyone else how to annoy Maura and Anastasia, right girls?

    Right!” Priscilla and Katia say with a slightly mischievous tone.

    Then you bring out Aislyn, your Ninetales, who is … eh, less than enthused about your appearance, to put it lightly. Her role was to be that of a Pokemon whose trainer had died and was then raised by the ghosts. Then you had her do a sad face, and she starts whining and her eyes start getting very soulful, and AWWW, I WANNA GO HUG HERRRR!!! Then you have her give her angry face, and wow, can she get mad! SHE WILL HAVE HER VENGEANCE, I ASSURE YOU! THIS! IS! …Not a good time for me to ramble, is it? Your Pokemon both agree with the plan, and the ghosts are assured that it’s the best plan they could come up with. As long as the focus was completely off of you, things would be fine. Well, let’s get started, then, shall we? Onward … TO VICTORY! … I have no idea where I am going. Actually, wait, yes I do, I’m the narrator!

    **********

    Aislyn and the three sisters head off confidently toward the graveyard while you stayed behind for a minute to gather your thoughts. When you were ready, you asked Sangre to Fly you over, and, when he was done chewing up a Yanma’s head (wait, when did he…?), he grabs your hand and carries you over to the trees, just outside of where the cemetery began. Aislyn and the others just got there, in fact, and you make sure to lay low until Maura and Anastasia appear and summon their minions. About the time when the four make it to the center of the graveyard, you could see the two hags from before. “So, sisters,” Anastasia speaks with a haughty tone, “is this going to be your last act of defiance before we send you to the Netherworld for eternity?

    And you have even brought a pretty pet for us!” said Maura, to which your Ninetales gives a fierce glare, all the while coming up with a truly Nasty Plot in order to make these ghosts live through Hell. “No!” Rowena said angrily. “You and your minions are responsible for killing her trainer!

    She barely escaped them alive, it was horrible!” Priscilla added. “We helped nourish her so that she would be strong enough to get her revenge on you, got it!?” Aislyn pours it on by starting to shed tears before giving Maura and Anastasia an even fiercer glare, almost as if she wanted nothing more than to tear their ghostly bodies apart. “You’ve gone too far now!” Katia chimes in. “We’ll make sure you two don’t hurt anyone else!

    All this time, you see the two older sisters ignore everyone else. Maura looks at the tips of her fingers (Are there nails? I’ve never figured that out about Haunter and Gengar…) before saying, “…Are you through? Ana, I believe it’s time to silence our sisters once and for all!” She then turns into her true form, a Gengar sporting a devious grin. “I absolutely agree, they always were inferior!” the other ghost says before she assumes her Mismagius form. Then their eyes start glowing, you could feel the ground shaking even from here, and you knew what was happening. You start to concentrate on your spell as about a hundred Poison-type Pokemon seep from their graves. They were mostly lower-leveled Koffing, Grimer, and Trubbish, but there were also some Weezing, Muk, and Garbodor among them that could prove more difficult to vanquish. Not much more is said as the four Pokemon surrounded by Poison-types assume battle stances. The Poison Pokemon inch closer, only for Aislyn to completely blast a Grimer with her Extrasensory power, KOing it instantly. Rowena tries a Sucker Punch, only for it to bounce off another Grimer’s Acid Armor completely; too bad that attack only works when the opponent is using an offensive move too. Fortunately, Priscilla picks up the slack as she lets loose her Psybeam on the same Grimer, and its Acid Armor wasn’t going to save it this time. Another KO’d Grimer! Katia tries her hand at one of the Koffing and attempts to Hypnotize it into going to sleep, but the Koffing looks away in time.

    One of the Trubbish spits some Sludge at Aislyn, doing only a little bit of damage, but it is enough to slightly poison her, and she grimaces as she now has to be subject to filthy, icky stuff on her beautiful fur. Another one spits Sludge at Katia, but it only does minimal damage, while a Koffing spews a Smokescreen in Priscilla’s area, reducing her Accuracy, and a Grimer tries a Mud Slap on Rowena, though she easily Levitates out of the way. Now the gorgeous Ninetales would not be denied the roasting of one Trubbish who dared to dirty her beautiful coat. Her Flamethrower instantly burns up not only the Trubbish in front of her but the one behind it as well. Not bad! She got her revenge, and then some! A Confuse Ray from Rowena then serves to confuse a couple of Koffing in the which they attack each other to the point where they Selfdestruct against each other. Rowena and the other Ghosts may have been in the blast zone, but they felt none of the damage. Three Grimer, a Garbodor, and two more Trubbish were all KO’d by the blast, however, as Priscilla thoroughly Astonished another Koffing, causing it to flinch. Katia then spits out a Shadow Ball to finish off that same Koffing before the Poison-types launched another assault. Another Grimer was close enough so that it could spew more Sludge at Aislyn, though the Ninetales is able to see it coming this time and jumps away, only getting her foot barely caught in the attack. Some other Poison-types mindlessly try Pound and Doubleslap attacks against the ghosts … yeah, did I mention they were mindlessly doing that? The two sisters were still focused on controlling their stronger minions, so the weaker ones were going to be fodder, apparently. One minute has passed by, and as you continue to concentrate on your spell you feel it will only be four more minutes until the spell is ready. During that time you would be unable to give orders to your Pokemon though, and even if you did you would give away your position.

    # of Minions Remaining:
    17 Grimer
    20 Koffing
    18 Trubbish
    11 Muk
    11 Weezing
    10 Garbodor

    What will Marion do?

    Aislyn and the three sisters act out their part of the plan perfectly, with Aislyn's silent theatrics supporting their impassioned words. Aislyn thinks of the most horrible, fire-related deaths she could possibly inflict upon Maura and Anastasia as part of her Nasty Plot, and the inner pyromaniac in Aislyn awakens with sadistic glee. The "old crones" seem rather disinterested in Aislyn's pain and their sisters' vows to end them once and for all, though Aislyn secretly was glad for their obvious boredom and self-absorption; the less focused they were on the story, the less likely they were to question it. Certainly, Aislyn put on a face as though their rude attitude was insult to injury, but in truth, the crafty Ninetales hoped that Anastasia and Maura would continue to underestimate her and their sisters so that they may maintain the advantage. As the pair of wicked sisters reveal their true forms, Marion goes deep into meditation, concentrating on the soil beneath her as deeply as she can, though she makes sure not to overexert herself. The trick was to maintain a level of focus that was strong, yet sustainable for long periods of time. To burn out her focus too quickly could be disastrous, and while Marion wanted the transformation done as quickly as possible, she also needed to make sure she did not burn herself out. Silently, her consciousness flows deeper and deeper into the soil, as she becomes one with that terrible poison. Sangre remains silently hovering in place, limiting his movement as much as he possibly can, maintaining the bare minimum to keep himself and his trainer aloft.

    Marion trusts in Aislyn to keep the battle going, knowing that issuing any orders would likely reveal her position. Aware that Marion was likely focusing hard on her necromancy, Aislyn takes the initiative herself, deciding to focus on the weaker minions for now. After all, the last thing she wanted was for a lot of little poison types to gang up on her and cover her in that disgusting filth of theirs... Nasty! Still feeling vengeful regarding the grime that got on her beautiful coat from that awful garbage bag, she decides to teach those Trubbish a few more lessons: indeed, a bit of Payback was in order! Then, she would have to set those ridiculous trash containers on fire with Flame Burst, and follow it up by a Confuse Ray in the direction of some Koffing (perhaps the confusion would cause them to selfdestruct as the others did before; Aislyn did admire how well that strategy worked from Rowena). The beautiful Ninetales jumps into action as quickly as she can, eager to prove to the three sisters that she was a worthy combatant to have on their side... and that nobody who messes with her precious coat will ever live to tell the tale!!

    Default Adventures in Astoria by Dark Searchman, Part 20

    Well, some of these updates might've gotten rushed, but here's a batch right at the end of the month! Who knows, I may end up doing more depending on how quickly you guys reply~


    The Divine Woodland


    Diamond Lake

    Meetan

    You were just in time to interrupt a wild Persian’s meal before it killed the Swellow, but now you had a big cat that wanted you out of sight before it started going after you. Hah, as if! Swinub wasn’t 100% for this fight, however, so you turn to your uniquely colored gray Bagon with a not-so-unique rebellious streak in the hopes that the little dragon would have the strength needed against this mountain lion. Persian, noticing that you haven’t left yet, starts formulating strategies in her head until she eventually licks her lips and sports a Nasty smirk; what could she be Plotting? Bagon don’t know, and Bagon don’t care; he simply wants to take his angst out on someone and uses all of his Water energy to spit a huge jet of water very forcefully at the cat, but she jumps down at that moment, reducing the damage she would have normally taken. She’s still ticked about getting some of her fur wet, so ticked, in fact, that her plan to Captivate Bagon goes out the window; she instead tries to wait for Bagon to make its move, but he surprises her by Rushing at her with more force than she thought and ends up flinching under the pressure. Never underestimate a Dragon! Bagon then tries to use the water on Persian as a conductor to amplify his Thunderbolt, in which he pours all of his Electric energy into, but it’s Persian’s turn to surprise both of you as she charges straight for Bagon with enough quickness that the attack only damages her tail, then does a perfect pounce right onto the smaller Pokemon’s body and goes for a Bite to the jugular. Bagon, having used up so much energy in such a short amount of time, is finding it impossible to free himself from the Technician’s deadly move, and you could see he was having a hard time breathing … if something isn’t done quick, your Bagon will be a Ba-goner!

    What will Alice do?


    Magus Falls

    Kaisap112 – {Please remember to post your replies in Size 1, thanks!}

    Ooo, somebody’s tying their hair back, things are getting’ serious now, oh noes… What, I like sarcasm, okay? Well, Minori had to do the dirty work, so … let’s see if he does just that! He tries to get another Surf attack on Lunatone, and this time Lunatone dodges only part of the attack, taking more damage than it did before. As Lunatone starts to get dragged into the water, it tries to distort the surface with Confusion, which ends up hitting Minori for some damage, failing to Confuse it, but distorting his senses right as he makes the Whirlpool, and as a result the underwater cyclone is created upside-down! How does that work?! …I’m afraid it doesn’t, and the cyclone dissipates soon after it is made, with Lunatone largely unscathed from that attack. Lunatone then uses the moment to try a Psywave while Seel uses Ice Beam, but both attacks collide then pass each other, meaning both Pokemon take damage, but it’s Minori who suffers from the critical hit. He opens his eyes again, only to see a mesmerizing stare coming from Lunatone, and he falls Asleep from the Hypnosis spell cast on him! Lunatone still hasn’t gotten out of the water yet and actually takes damage as the water erodes a small part of its body, leaving it below 30% health but still with half of its original energy. Minori has 40% health and just above 30% energy, but the sleep could last a couple of rounds, long enough for Lunatone to finish him off!

    What will Noriko do?


    Eyrie Peak


    Posy Field

    Jolteonjak & Son_of_Shadows

    Now that you two had saved Steven, you could each concentrate on saving the friends you had encountered earlier. As Joshua puts his Munna back safely in his Pokeball, Bishop tries his best to keep up and lets loose a wave of Extrasensory power at the Beedrill with Karrablast, hitting it cleanly for some really good damage and causing the hornet to flinch and falter to the side. Unfortunately, that was the extent of Bishop’s energy, and he falls toward the ground, too exhausted to fly anymore. Cloudy sees this but knows he has a more important job to do, so he increases his Agility and Speed, until the Swablu is able to catch up very quickly … can he Take Down the Beedrill for enough? … Ohhhhh, not quite enough, Beedrill is still up and flying, and that maneuver put Swablu out of position to be able to catch up again! Nooo, it looks like the Beedrill get away with- wait, what are those pink bubbles in front of Beedrill? Joshua looks to the left and sees that the attack is Numel’s doing! And as Beedrill starts Yawning, its drowsiness gets the better of it and its grip slackens enough on Karrablast so that it’s free … but falling to the ground! Joshua is too busy trying to catch his beloved Hoothoot, so it’s up to Cloudy to save the day; he takes the heightened speed and zips over to where the Bug-type was falling as fast as he could, but he missed! Suddenly, a cloud of steam rushes up to lift Karrablast, then gently lower it towards Numel’s back. Job well done, little Numb Pokemon! Chad eventually returns him, though he really should be commended for the effort!

    Meanwhile, there was still a Teddiursa that needed rescuing! Quagsire tries a Mud Bomb to weigh that Beedrill down more, but he overarched it and the large clump of dirt sails past. The Mud Shot, however, hits its mark and lowers the hornet’s Speed further. Heracross is then even better able to catch up and ram Beedrill with its Aerial Ace attack that, not only does it free Teddiursa, but it even scores a KO on the Beedrill! Heracross is then able to fly back and catch Teddiursa, who then proceeds to exchange smiles with him. As Heracross brings the bear cub over to Chad, she takes the initiative and jumps into her hero’s arms with a cute bear hug! Quagsire, Heracross, and Cloudy each gain one level for successfully completing the rescue!

    As Joshua heads toward where Karrablast is, the beetle is starting to come around again. The remaining Beedrill, now realizing they’ve lost even their prisoners, slow their flight and try to pick up as many stragglers as they can before flying off somewhere to lick their wounds. More buzzing could be heard as the two Beedrill from earlier, as well as the sick queen they were carrying, approach the group, likely wanting to express gratitude of some sort. The queen nods to her soldiers, and she is gently set down before both of them get on one knee and present both trainers with a Poison Barb for each of them, allow time to claim the items, and slowly fly away with their queen back to their hive. Meanwhile, Teddiursa continues to cling to Chad and looks up at him with longing eyes, while Karrablast tries to walk away, but looks back towards Joshua with each step he takes then looks down before slowly taking another step. Perhaps each Pokemon is sending its own signal towards their respective acquaintance?

    What will Chad and Joshua do?


    Dead Forest


    Toxic Marsh

    Ampharos_Dude – {Yep, you did it right! Now go hatch Fire Core eggs already! Also, assume your Pokemon have been fully healed up at this point, including your new Zigzagoon, so feel free to use him too!}

    Well, after a harrowing encounter with a mother Linoone and her babies, you and your Pokemon came out of it mostly unscathed … and you even had a new partner to boot! Who wouldn’t sign up for more fun with the Squirtleman! You do however say that you’ve had enough of dealing with angry mothers for one day, and the Squirtleman chuckles, “Whew, I’m with ya thar, buddy! Man, she was a fighter!”

    **********

    Once again, you found yourself back in the truck bed, where Poppy resumed playing and giving Cherry a headache, though she would also rest her head on your lap for some cuddles. You were assured that the Manectric’s fur wouldn’t have a paralyzing effect since Poppy was more suited to being a living Lightningrod. The caged Linoone and her two babies were also there, the mother looking at you all the time, as if she was concerned about her son. It seems like she knew what happened … how would she know he was in good hands? “Anyway, what else we got today, Louie?” Ronnie asks his partner.

    “Ya know how Barney’s a beekeeper, right?”
    “Yeah, so what’s the problem?”
    “The problem is that he’s been seein’ a Skuntank attackin’ his Combee hives in broad daylight!”
    “A Skuntank?!” the Squirtleman says with dread. “Man, I hate Skuntanks, th’make everthin’ smelly, and there’s … poison, ‘n they claw and bite at ya somethin’ fierce … look it up ‘n that ‘Dex o’ yours, kid, you’ll see what I mean!” Another concern to think about was the Combee; what if you three had to deal with Skuntank and the Combee? That would certainly make things tough! Maybe you could think of a strategy along the way that will make it so you could draw Skuntank away from the Combee if you needed to?

    Shiro has a nice truck ride to think it over, so what can he come up with?

    Missingno. Master

    Rather than try to battle it out with a young Nidoran and risk injury to him—which would surely incite the parents and turn you into ground-up meat—you try to persuade the little male to play a less harmful game so it wouldn’t use that energy towards trying to ram into you. Just then, one of his cousins walked by, and he smirked just before walking up to you and touching your leg with his paw. “Nii~ doraa~!” he says loudly, and in a playful manner before rushing off somewhere. This also sparked the other Nidoran into running around and trying to make sure they were far away from you as possible. Ah, now I know what they’re trying to do, they want to play Tag! Well, you figured this would be easy enough since there were so many Nidoran there, but time and time again you find that they’re nimble enough to just slip out of your fingers. Finally, you manage to touch one, and you even avoided the spikes. This game would continue until it turned from tag into “How many Nidoran can pile onto the strange human?” Even a few of the younger Nidorina and Nidorino join in, and you curl up into a ball, laughing from all the tickling you were getting from the Poison Pins. Eventually, you would have enough and excuse yourself from the pen while trying your best to make sure none of the young went with you. Finally, you escaped, somewhat exhausted, but satisfied. It didn’t seem like Bo or Sally made it back yet … maybe you still had time to visit ROX- ahem, the Bug Pokemon they had here! “Sure, go ahead! Meantime, I’ll see if I can get Bo’s butt back over here!” said Shelley when you asked about going over there. “Girls, I’ll be outside if you need me, now make sure you get yer chores done!”

    “Okay!” the two sisters call back before Shelley makes her way outside with the telephone in the barn and you head over to a large greenhouse that was almost as big as the Venom Barn. As you open the door, it feels like you walked into a jungle with all the thick plants surrounding you, the sticky humidity, the stickier ground that you had trouble walking in. What’s all this white stuff on the ground anyway? Suddenly, you feel your leg pulled in toward a hole then released. You look back just in time to see an Ariados climb back inside and put the cover on its hole again, presumably waiting for lunch to step on its sticky web. “Haha, sorry, I probably should’ve warned you!” you hear Roxie’s voice before you see her walk toward you with a smile on her face. “Some of the Ariados here are trapdoor-type spiders; you step too close, and they’ll attack! They’ve been trained to release humans, though, so if your leg gets grabbed by them just don’t move, and they’ll figure it out. Struggling would actually trigger their prey instinct and make things worse. Speaking of that, the other Ariados and the Beedrill are all fed, I was just about to feed this one before moving on to the Scolipede.” She put her hand inside the bucket she was carrying and pulls out a dead Wurmple before sliding it across the ground. The Ariados from earlier peeks it head out of its burrow before quickly snatching it. Roxie continues moving the dead bug around to simulate it “struggling” before letting go and allowing the spider to withdraw and eat in peace.

    She then takes you to the part of the nursery where the Scolipede lived, just past a small grove of Yellow Apricorn trees. “Oh yeah, you probably noticed they grow Yellow Apricorns on the side,” Roxie explains. “This way they can have the local Pokeball maker make Moon Balls and be able to catch their Nidoran easier. The Nidoran are the most popular of their Pokemon around these parts, but most of them are total rebels and break out of regular Pokeballs often; Moon Balls make things less of a hassle. Well, here we are!”

    Three large centipedes come to greet the two of you, along with many smaller ones. Roxie fishes for some Caterpie and other large grubs and tosses them in the air at just the perfect height for the Scolipede to snatch their food and start nibbling at it; you know they’ll be sure to devour every last bit of their meal! “Here,” she says before she offers you some smaller grubs. “The Venipede are harder to feed just because there’s so many of them, and it’s hard to tell if they’ve all gotten their fill or not. Try and see if they’ll eat out of your hands, it’s a lot of fun!” After a test run of that you realize she speaks the truth as the Venipede gather around your hands and gently grab mouthfuls of squirming mealworms from them, tickling your palms slightly with their mouthparts. “See? These guys are nice, we just have to make sure we feed them regularly. Uncle told me about this one time where the Scolipede didn’t get fed for three days, and when he went to check on them he caught them eating their own kids! It was a mess! He learned his lesson from then on and feeds them daily so that doesn’t happen again, but I never would’ve thought they’d resort to that!”

    Just before you and Roxie finish feeding the Venipede, Shelley approaches you with an anxious look and says, “Oh good, yer still here! I’ve been tryin’ to reach Pa on the phone, but for whatever reason, he ain’t answerin’. Could I trouble you two to lookin’ for him ‘n Sally? Maybe they’re still out there lookin’ for Gastly, but … well, Momma’s worries y’know?”

    What will Keith do?


    The Burial Ground

    Marion Ette

    Aislyn decides to take the sins against her fur coat personally and is ready to dish out some Payback against the Trubbish. Her tails lash out against any Trubbish nearby, and two of them are immediately swept off their feet and splattered against the other minions. Rowena figures Aislyn can handle things with the Trubbish and instead turns toward a Muk who was starting to get close enough to attack. One Shadow Punch, please? Ooo, and it even scores a critical hit, splattering more poisonous goo everywhere! Priscilla then goes after another Koffing with a Psybeam attack, and Koffing is overwhelmed by the attack while Katia’s Shadow Ball explodes against another Koffing and even bounces toward a second one, scoring a Double KO. The Trubbish and Koffing then all spew out Clear Smog, engulfing the area and causing Aislyn and the ghosts to cough from the terrible gas. Worse still, the Special Attack buff on your Ninetales got cancelled out due to the gases. The Grimer close by try adding some Sludge to the mix, and while Katia isn’t fazed at all—in fact, the 4 that targeted Katia brain farted and ended up stunning themselves to the point where they all fizzled out of existence—Aislyn, Rowena, and Priscilla each took some good damage, with Aislyn suffering a little more from the poison than she did before.

    Aislyn still wanted those Trubbish to pay for what they did; she would deal with those … Grimer later. Right now, she was more than happy to spit out some fire at the Trubbish, and the Flame Burst exploded viciously, atomizing one Trubbish and spraying cinders on four others, causing them to run around in pain, none of the other Pokemon seeming to want to help keep them from becoming smoldering piles of stinky ash, so nothing could prevent them from doing so. The ghost sisters then learn from how fun it was to watch their Shadow Balls bounce around the Poison Pokemon, so they each launch one, with Rowena’s getting a Koffing and a Grimer, Priscilla’s taking out another Koffing, and Katia’s KOing a third Koffing. All the smaller minions seem to be surprised at how quickly they were being taken out and hesitate to move any closer, but the larger Pokemon are undeterred, with one Garbodor lobbing a Sludge Bomb straight at Katia’s face for a critical hit on her, a Weezing getting a Double Hit on Aislyn, one of those attacks hitting critically, and a Muk Screeching at Rowena, causing her to cover her ears and lower her Defense significantly.

    Aislyn then turns her attention toward the Koffing and tries a Confuse Ray, with the ghost sisters joining in; perhaps this will stop all the remaining Koffing? No, but half of them do end up Confused and Selfdestruct on each other, taking four Grimer, three Trubbish, a Muk, a Weezing, and two Garbodor with them! That was pretty fun to watch! The remaining minions are then too stunned to move at all, so that was a bonus!

    3 minutes until the spell is ready…

    # of Minions Remaining:
    8 Grimer
    7 Koffing
    8 Trubbish
    9 Muk
    10 Weezing
    8 Garbodor

    What will Marion do?

    What will Keith do?[/size]
    After a few moments, Keith got the idea- the Nidoran wanted to play tag. He gave a slight grin as he started to join in, and found very quickly that the Nidoran were good at this game. They were all quick and nimble enough to slip away from him each and every time. At long last, Keith finally managed to tag a Nidoran, even managing to avoid its spikes. From there, though, the game quickly turned into a competition to see how many Nidoran could pile onto Keith. And was he enjoying himself! He was laughing uncontrollably from how all the Nidoran (and even some of the younger Nidoran and Nidorino) were tickling him... but eventually, he had had enough, and managed to escape them. He exited the pen, still chuckling somewhat, and making sure none of the young Nidoran followed him out. He was exhausted, but DAMN, was that fun!

    Keith then looked around, and noticed that Bo and Sally didn't seem to be back yet. He figured he might still have time to go see their Bug-types. As he asked Shelley whether this was OK, she was fine with it. He headed over to a large greenhouse which looked to be nearly as big as the Venom Barn. As soon as Keith walked in, he got the impression of walking through a jungle, between the plants around him, the humid air, and the sticky ground, Before Keith could wonder too much about the nature of just what it was he was walking in, his leg was briefly pulled into a hole, then released. Roxie approached Keith at that moment, and explained that some of the Ariados were trapdoor-type spiders. "Ah," nodded Keith, watching as Roxie fed a dead Wurmple to the Ariados that had gone for Keith's leg. He had an Ariados himself, but Aragog wasn't a trapdoor spider, he preferred his webs above ground. As they approached the Scolipede area, Roxie further explained that they grew Yellow Apricorns, in order to maintain a supply of Moon Balls in which to catch their more stubborn Nidoran. Before Keith could remark on this, they arrived. Keith saw three Scolipede, along with a number of Venipede. Roxie started to feed them, and offered him some small grubs to feed the Venipede. Keith gave it a try- he had never done this with Salazar before- and found that Roxie was right- it was kind of fun feeding them like this. It was also kinda cool to see Scolipede that were the natural color for their kind. "Eeesh," Keith remarked as Roxie told him about how one time the Scolipede didn't get fed for three days and thus resorted to eating their own young. "Well, I feed my own Scolipede on a daily basis anyway, but thanks for giving me more reason to do so."

    At that moment, Shelley approached Keith, and she looked anxious. She explained that Bo hadn't been answering the phone, and asked Keith and Roxie if they would go look for him and Sally. Keith nodded. "Sure, no problem," he replied. "And my Venomoth can help, too, she can search from the sky," he added, as he took the Poké Ball containing Lily off his belt.

    Now that you two had saved Steven, you could each concentrate on saving the friends you had encountered earlier. As Joshua puts his Munna back safely in his Pokeball, Bishop tries his best to keep up and lets loose a wave of Extrasensory power at the Beedrill with Karrablast, hitting it cleanly for some really good damage and causing the hornet to flinch and falter to the side. Unfortunately, that was the extent of Bishop’s energy, and he falls toward the ground, too exhausted to fly anymore. Cloudy sees this but knows he has a more important job to do, so he increases his Agility and Speed, until the Swablu is able to catch up very quickly … can he Take Down the Beedrill for enough? … Ohhhhh, not quite enough, Beedrill is still up and flying, and that maneuver put Swablu out of position to be able to catch up again! Nooo, it looks like the Beedrill get away with- wait, what are those pink bubbles in front of Beedrill? Joshua looks to the left and sees that the attack is Numel’s doing! And as Beedrill starts Yawning, its drowsiness gets the better of it and its grip slackens enough on Karrablast so that it’s free … but falling to the ground! Joshua is too busy trying to catch his beloved Hoothoot, so it’s up to Cloudy to save the day; he takes the heightened speed and zips over to where the Bug-type was falling as fast as he could, but he missed! Suddenly, a cloud of steam rushes up to lift Karrablast, then gently lower it towards Numel’s back. Job well done, little Numb Pokemon! Chad eventually returns him, though he really should be commended for the effort!

    Meanwhile, there was still a Teddiursa that needed rescuing! Quagsire tries a Mud Bomb to weigh that Beedrill down more, but he overarched it and the large clump of dirt sails past. The Mud Shot, however, hits its mark and lowers the hornet’s Speed further. Heracross is then even better able to catch up and ram Beedrill with its Aerial Ace attack that, not only does it free Teddiursa, but it even scores a KO on the Beedrill! Heracross is then able to fly back and catch Teddiursa, who then proceeds to exchange smiles with him. As Heracross brings the bear cub over to Chad, she takes the initiative and jumps into her hero’s arms with a cute bear hug! Quagsire, Heracross, and Cloudy each gain one level for successfully completing the rescue!

    As Joshua heads toward where Karrablast is, the beetle is starting to come around again. The remaining Beedrill, now realizing they’ve lost even their prisoners, slow their flight and try to pick up as many stragglers as they can before flying off somewhere to lick their wounds. More buzzing could be heard as the two Beedrill from earlier, as well as the sick queen they were carrying, approach the group, likely wanting to express gratitude of some sort. The queen nods to her soldiers, and she is gently set down before both of them get on one knee and present both trainers with a Poison Barb for each of them, allow time to claim the items, and slowly fly away with their queen back to their hive. Meanwhile, Teddiursa continues to cling to Chad and looks up at him with longing eyes, while Karrablast tries to walk away, but looks back towards Joshua with each step he takes then looks down before slowly taking another step. Perhaps each Pokemon is sending its own signal towards their respective acquaintance?

    What will Chad and Joshua do?

    Chad watched the reunion of Joshua and Steven. He was glad to see the Dream Eater back safely with his trainer. This made him all the more determined to see the captives rescued safely. Then everything seemed to fall in place. Bishop was able to stun one of the Beedrill enough for Cloudy to finish their mission to rescue Karrablast. Meanwhile, Quagsire's Mud Shot was able to slow down the final Beedrill, so Heracross could strike with Aerial Ace. That took out the Beedrill, and Heracross was able to rescue a falling Teddiursa at the same time.

    Heracross and Quagsire returned to Chad's side with Teddiursa secure in Heracross' arms. As he flew closer, Teddiursa leapt out of the Singlehorn's arms and into Chad's. "Whoa there," Chad said surprised as he caught her. "Are you ok?" She hugged Chad, who smirked and hugged her back. "I'm glad you're safe too, dear."

    Chad held onto Teddiursa as he and his Pokemon watched the remaining Beedrill escape. The buzzing sounds never quite faded though. He and everyone turn around to see more Beedrill approaching them. They see two Beedrill approaching carrying another one. Chad looked to Joshua for some sort of clue as to what was happening, since he had joined the party a little late. The sickly-looking Beedrill seemed to nod to the ones carrying it, and they put it on the ground. The healthier Beedrill, then presented something to Chad and Joshua. They each offered one sharp barb. Chad could only assume it was poisonous given the presenters being part Poison Type. While thinking of whether to accept it, he began wondering if the Poison Barb was actually from a previously defeated Beedrill from their battle with Queen Shiny. "Do you want us to have one of these?" Chad asked calmly. Heracross seemed to understand everything, and he bowed at the sick Beedrill. Chad reached out slowly to the Beedrill, half-expecting another attack, and took the Barb from the Beedrill. Seeing his Heracross bowing, Chad decided he should bow too, out of respect. Once Joshua also took his, the Beedrill flew away with the sick one they were carrying.

    "Well that's over," Chad sighed in relief. "It certainly was quite the adventure, eh Joshua?" He glanced down to see Teddiursa, still hugging him, looking up at him with wide eyes. Chad smirked at her, "So I take it you want to stay with me Teddiursa? Or are you still hungry for more of my Berry stash?" Chad reached in his pocket and withdrew a special Pokeball. Its bottom half was white while its upper half was black with a large yellow stripe running across the black half. A red "V" adorned the colored half with its point facing the capture button. He held his Level Ball out to Teddiursa. "You're so adorable. I think we'll be great friends. Go ahead and tap the button if you agree."


    Stats - OOC: Collecting 1x Poison Barb. Heracross levels up from 25 to 26. Quagsire levels up from 21 to 22.

This is a general announcement: I am aware I mentioned recently my personal rule of not replying until I've made an update for my Astorians. I ask that you understand that this is a unique circumstance, and hopefully it works out in the end.

    Bishop attacked once again, releasing a wave of psychic energy, and his target was visibly pained. He hooted as he slumped in exhaustion. Today had just been too much for him, and he needed a good long rest. He began to fall from the air, slowly but surely, as his trainer rushed towards him. Meanwhile, the chase continued regardless. Cloudy crashed into the Beedrill carrying Karrablast with all his might, but it seemed to do him more harm than good. He'd been deflected off-course, and the Beedrill was still escaping. Joshua put a hand to his pocket, ready to grab a spare Pokéball - if he could hit Beedrill, then maybe-

    Or not. Beedrill was suddenly flying straight into a pair of pink bubbles. They looked like a Yawn attack, but what on earth had fired it? He looked around, spotting Chad's Numel, on the offensive. His manoeuvre appeared to have done the trick though, as the Beedrill finally relinquished its grip on Karrablast! Victory! ... Oh. Right. Now the ground was rushing up to meet it. The team's ace pilot, Cloudy, was darting in without an order, but he was simply too slow due to his earlier collision. Joshua winced in anticipation of the crash, but it simply never came. Numel had managed to catch the beetle on a cloud of steam. One wondered how exactly it wasn't being scalded right now, but nonetheless! "Nice job there!" he called out to Numel, on a job well done. Meanwhile, Joshua recalled the exhausted Cloudy, Bishop and Aegis. They had all had some serious trials today. "Well done you guys. You all deserve a very long rest." Victory had been achieved, and Chad had managed to defeat the other Beedrill carrying a Teddiursa. With that, it seemed the battle between the hives was truly over, as the remaining stragglers cleared the area.

    Now, Joshua made his way over to the Karrablast. Part of was really curious about an explanation. The other part was glad the little Pokémon was safe as it woke up. But there was just one last thing to attend to before that, namely three Beedrill flying towards them. It was the still unwell queen of the hive they had defended, and two of her soldiers. Chad looked to Joshua for an explanation, but he was as lost as the other trainer was. But all became clear as they were presented with two strange barbs. Poison Barbs to be specific. "Ah," he said to Chad, "these must be gifts. The sick Beedrill is the queen of the hive that just got attacked. I assume these are for defending them." As Chad bowed, Joshua followed suit, and accepted the barb graciously. He was sure he could find a use for it on his team. Perhaps Amélie would appreciate it. And with that, the Beedrills were gone.

    "Well that's over," Chad sighed in relief. "It certainly was quite the adventure, eh Joshua?"

    "Yeah, that's one way to put it." He ran a hand through his hair. "I'll be very happy to never see another Beedrill in my life though..." Chad was now turning his attention to the Teddiursa. It seemed that it was wild as well, but seemed to want to come with him. Perhaps they would make a good team. That said, Joshua was in the same boat. Karrablast was exhibiting a bizarrely human behaviour of taking a slow step, and looking back at him before sighing and looking down. Rinse and repeat. The trainer watched this for about five steps, just waiting to see how long he would try to keep it up, before chuckling and giving in. "And just where do you think you're going? I think we've been through too much today not to have some more adventures..." He reached into his pocket, pulling out an empty Pokéball (7/10). "Well then?"


    OOC: Cloudy grew from level 20 to level 21! Cloudy learned Natural Gift! And collecting a Poison Barb.

    Well, you and Joshua had a pretty harrowing experience in your adventures, which ended with you meeting each other and fighting a TON of Beedrill. If you never see another one of those wasps in your life… Anyway, you found yourself falling for the adorable little Teddiursa in your arms, and you bring out a Level Ball, asking the Teddiursa if she wanted to join you or if she just wanted more handouts. The Little Bear thought for a moment … a life of foraging for … maybe some good Berries … or a life with this boy where she could always get her favorite foods? …She quickly presses the button on the special Apricorn Pokeball, puts herself inside, and shakes the capsule around so she could make herself comfortable before the Pokeball “pinged”, signaling a capture. Well, that was a pretty easy decision for the Lv. 8 Female Teddiursa, wasn’t it? You look back toward the forest where the cub in your Level Ball took you and think back on the adventure; it seemed like she was always making you chase after her, almost as if she was leading you by the hand. You had already shared so much together, and now that she was with you and your friends it’ll be interesting to see who else’s day she can brighten. The sun was starting to set now, and you could somehow see her bright face there too. Suddenly you could hear some familiar buzzing, and you look to the left to see the invading Beedrill swarm! Thankfully, they weren’t charging at you again but heading off in a different direction, almost looking forlorn as their flight is slow and their heads hung low. You also notice that the green Beedrill is not with them. What could have happened? …Uh, you try not to think about it too much, as doing so could risk you getting more involvement with these Beedrill than you already had. But still, so much mystery was surrounding these Beedrill. You knew so little, yet took part in a battle of epic proportions. Perhaps you’ll never know what was really behind “The Beedrill Battle at Posy Field”…

    Okay, so you and Chad had a pretty harrowing experience in your adventures, which ended with you meeting each other and fighting a TON of Beedrill. If you never see another one of those wasps in your life… You also weren’t too thrilled about the idea of having to save the same stupid bug you were fighting to start off your “mispicnic”. Yet your silly sense of duty and justice prevailed … or was it more than that? You wonder as the Karrablast tried to walk away from you but slowed down with each step. It didn’t seem like he wanted to leave after all, and—just as Chad allowed a sweet Teddiursa to become a part of his team—you took out a Pokeball of your own, extending to Karrablast the same offer. The Bug-type looks down, then looks at you again before turning around and nodding slowly. You take this as a yes and toss the Pokeball towards him, the capsule sucking him inside, though it seems like he continued to put up more of a struggle as it takes a while for the Pokeball to stop shaking, but eventually it does. Always the rebel, that Lv. 4 Male Karrablast, isn’t he? You look back toward the- eesh, the bushes that were still burnt thanks to your recklessness, along with the smoldering picnic basket inside. …Maybe it’s best to look somewhere else so people don’t see the guilt on your face, associate it with the bushes, and put two and two together. The sun was setting too, so now you really weren’t going to have enough time to salvage some sort of picnic out of the day. Sorry, you’ll have to try again sometime, and next time, try not to resort to burning things down in order to get your way, ‘kay? …What, I’m just trying to give this person some advice, he totally needs i- OWOWOW, all right, all right, I’ll get back to the story, just stop pulling my ear, Tess!

    {Yay, finished adventures! Since you already have your first zone captures, I’ll just remind you two to remember to claim your Pokemon by replying to your respective updates before you add them to your party. And yeah, this was pretty much how far I intended for you two to go, so at this point you can go your separate ways and end here, or you could go somewhere else in Astoria, or even stick around as a team! I’m fine with whatever, but keep in mind I still have a backlog of people waiting to do their Astoria adventures, so you may be waiting for a long time if you’re wanting to stay in Astoria. If not, I wish you good luck in the future and always remember you can come back if you like the thrill of avoiding being eaten by everything you come across! Now if you’ll excuse me, I must check on a certain living sleeping bag, I don’t think she’s eaten in a while… ^_^’}

    You had fun with the Nidoran family and the Scolipede, but this was all part of waiting for Bo and Sally … and they hadn’t come back yet. Shelley’s worries finally convince her to ask you and Roxie to go looking for the father and daughter, and you oblige, saying that your Venomoth could help provide some aerial searching. “Would ya? I’d appreciate it,” said Shelley. “The farm’s in trouble as it is, ‘n the last thing we need is some of our family goin’ missin’. If you find them, tell them we found all the Gastly, and they’re to come straight home!”

    “Sure thing, we’ll tell them!” Roxie nods, and, after you bring your Venomoth out and tell her to find Bo and Sally, Lily sets off toward the sky and you make your way towards the woods. “I’ve got someone who can help too!” Roxie adds. “Okay, time to rock, Seviper!” She then tosses a Pokeball, and out pops a large snake with red fangs and bladed tail. This one seems to be tame compared to what you’ve seen out of your own Seviper, though perhaps the tameness has come from so much training put into him. “All right, we need your help! My family is missing, think you can sniff them out?” The Fang Snake nods before slowly slithering around, flicking his tongue out in an effort to “taste” where they might be. After a moment he shakes his head, signaling they weren’t close enough to be tracked down, nor were there any signs of them being here at all. “Not here, huh?” Roxie asks furtively. “Well, we’ll just have to keep looking!”

    **********

    Meanwhile, your Venomoth wasn’t having too much luck finding Bo or Sally either, no matter how far her sharp vision is allowing her to see. Suddenly, she’s able to see someone, but it wasn’t a Bullwinkle. It looked like a person with a … beanie? But beanies normally have one tip, this hat has two … weird. Lily thinks this is an interesting taste in fashion, so she flutters down for a closer look, only to find more weird looking people, one of them with an afro, half-red, half-white. The teenager with the weird beanie was there, along with another guy and two girls … and Bo and Sally tied up to a tree! Uh oh, one of the girls noticed Lily, and she throws a Pokeball towards her, unleashing a hungry-looking Yanmega who decided a Poison Moth would hit the spot at that moment! Now Lily was faced with a decision: fight the Ogre Darner off, or try to get away and tell Keith?

    What will Keith and Lily do in their situations?

    Karrablast seemed more than willing to come along, but couldn't resist one last act of rebellion against the trainer, having his Pokéball shake rigorously before finally coming to a stop. Capture complete. Karrablast was only the second Pokémon Joshua had managed to capture while out on an adventure, so he couldn't help but feel slightly proud of himself. Plus, he'd really earned this one, by both battling and rescuing it. Yeah, Karrablast owed him, big time. "I think I'll name you Oswin, my new friend. Oswin. Yes, I like it. I think you'll get along with the rest of the team quite swimmingly." He thought of his Venonat and Zangoose in particular. Yes, they would be perfect matches. He hoped. Maybe Stunfisk too, at a stretch. They both had that prankster personality. Even the invading Beedrill hive was now flying off in the opposite direction, and Chad had captured his own Teddiursa. It seemed as though today's adventure had wound to a finish. There was the unanswered question of the shiny Queen Beedrill, who now seemed to have left her hive, but ultimately, Joshua was too tired to care. He needed a hot shower and a warm bed. Pokémon Centre tonight then, rather than the Repose.

    He took a quick moment to review today's adventure. Having come for a picnic, his basket was stolen by a prankster Karrablast. During the ensuing battle, Bishop had started a sizeable forest fire, which he'd had to extinguish with help from Aegis. Afterwards, he'd gone berry-hunting, only to be interrupted by a wild Beedrill on its own berry-hunt, trying to gather medicine for the queen of its hive. He'd followed it and tried to cure the Queen, causing him to gain the hive's trust, just in time for it to be invaded by a rival hive, chasing another trainer, Chad and his Numel. They'd teamed up to duel with the shiny Queen Beedill of the rival hive, causing Aegis to evolve to a Wartortle in the process. This rival hive had also kidnapped the aforementioned Karrablast, a Teddiursa that Chad seemed to have bonded with, and during the course of the battle, Steven. A daring rescue was made of all three during a climactic chase as the invading hive was repelled. And at the end of it all, Joshua's reward was a Poison Barb, and two new friends. Chad, and his new Karrablast, Oswin.

    All in all, quite a day.

    "Well, Chad, I dunno about you, but I'm getting out of here. My Pokémon are exhausted, and I'm feeling likewise. I'm heading to a Pokémon Centre for the night, but hey, it was great to meet you," he said, offering the trainer a friendly handshake, "If you ever happen to find yourself in the Cloud Garden, I have a little Secret Base there. You're more than welcome to visit to catch up and whatnot. Perhaps we'll meet again someday. And congratulations on your new Teddiursa. All the best." With that, he threw down one last Pokéball, revealing Trucy the Kadabra. "Teleport us out of here, Truce. Nearest Pokémon Centre if you please." He put a hand on her shoulder, and in a flash of light, they disappeared, waving to Chad as they did. Joshua would sleep very well that night, all the way through the morning, and late into the afternoon. And when he did wake up, he figured there was little point in doing anything else that day, and went right back to sleep.


    END OF ADVENTURE!

    OOC: Well, that's that. Claiming my level 4 male Karrablast. JJ, thank you for being an excellent, and far more competent partner than I could've hoped for in the second half of this adventure. It's taken a long time to get here, but get here we did, and I'm very pleased to finally finish a Fizzyventure. DS, thank you so much for a fun and interesting storyline that always had me excited for an update and was consistently of a high standard. And for the Karrablast of course. I may well be back in Astoria some day, but not for some considerable time. No point in clogging the queue after all. Perhaps I'll go and try Cascadia now... Maybe.

    What will Keith and Lily do in their situations?
    [/size]
    Keith sent Lily out, and as she flew off, Roxie brought out a Pokémon of her own- a Seviper. Not unlike Marvolo, Keith noted, though noticeably tame in appearance. Undoubtedly the result of lots and lots of training. Keith was very much impressed, thought this Seviper had no luck in locating Bo and Sally. Keith nodded in agreement as Roxie stated that they would just have to keep looking. "Then let's get moving," he replied.

    Meanwhile, Lily found Bo and Sally, but also found herself facing off against a hungry-looking Yanmega. She had to get back to Keith- she had no inclination to become a Yanmega's dinner, nor to give it any opportunity to go against her wishes. She could subdue the Yanmega, but this might just waste time while Keith and Roxie were off looking, probably in all the wrong places. Not to mention, what if the Yanmega won? Somehow, the idea of becoming its dinner wasn't sitting very well with her. She therefore focused hard on where she had left Keith, and attempted to use her abilities to Teleport back to his location.

    Faced with the decision of whether or not to join Chad, Teddiursa quickly chose to stay with Chad. She pressed the capture button of the Pokeball, and as she disappeared into the Ball, he could feel it shake as the Ball worked its magic on the Little Bear Pokemon. Then, “ping!” Teddiursa became Chad's new friend.

    Shortly after, Chad noticed Joshua offering a place to the Karrablast he had rescued, and the Clamping Pokemon obliged. He heard that Joshua named him Oswin. The thought of naming his Pokemon was new to him. He began wondering if his Pokemon would like the names he chose for them if he decided to go that route.

    More buzzing could be heard now, as both Chad and Joshua find Beedrill from Queen Shiny's hive flying away. Chad shuddered to think what they could be up to. He was just glad it was over.

    Chad's thoughts were paused when Joshua decided he wanted to spend the night at the Pokemon Center. He called upon the aid of a mid-sized Pokemon, holding a spoon. Chad decided to scan it anyway:


    Quote Originally Posted by Pokedex

    Once the Pokedex finished its entry, Chad waved to Joshua. “Take care Joshua. It was fun almost getting stung by Beedrill hundreds of times! I'll look you up if I ever do go to Cloud Garden.” Then, Joshua and his Kadabra disappeared.

    Both Heracross and Quagsire watched both capture scenes. Heracross puffed his chest with pride, and Quagsire slapped his tail on the ground happily. Then it dawned on Chad; he brought Cyndaquil and Numel out, along with Teddiursa, to meet their new friend.

    “Teddiursa, welcome to the team,” Chad said with his Pokemon all around him. Then he turned to his other Pokemon. “Thank you everyone for helping Teddiursa out. You all played a part in helping her and the Beedrill. Now she'll be joining us.” Cyndaquil and the others began cheering for Teddiursa, who immediately smiled and became embarrassed.

    'Just think,' Chad thought to himself while he watched his Pokemon welcome Teddiursa. 'This whole adventure happened because we collected some berries for her.' Chad reminisced of the events of the day.

    At long last, Chad noticed it was getting dark soon. He took out all of the Pokeballs except the Level Ball and recalled his Pokemon. “Let's go find a place to camp, hopefully far from a Beedrill hive,” he said picking up Teddiursa. “We'll head back to town in the morning.”

    The end.


    OOC: My first completed adventure! Thank you DS! It was a pretty exciting adventure. The story flowed wonderfully, and it was very interesting. S_o_S, thanks for being a great partner and keeping me on my toes. Also apologies for the times I held the adventure up. Thank you for the Teddiursa too. It's a line I always liked, but thanks to Paul/Shinji in the anime, my interest in getting an Ursaring skyrocketed. I don't know if I need to link my stats, so I did anyway.

    OOC2: Again, this is a special circumstance. I wanted the Teddiursa capture to be official before her birthday on the 10th.
