However, the judgement is sound: she is small, determined and agile with a wider movepool. Any stomping around could lead to a poisoned foot with a hole in it, too – though whether she’d survive the squishing or not is another matter.

    The miniature bug goes straight onto the offensive with a Poison Sting which hits, making the glitch Kangaskhan growl in unhappiness. It leers in response and goes for a set of Comet Punches, only to find its fist and the rest of its body caught in an electronic web. That slows it down and shocks it, and the large normal-type sets to flailing the web away, with Weedle steering well clear of the stomping and claw waving.

    Weedle appears to have an advantage – and a great one, which would surprise many who don’t own one of its species. Kangaskhan’s speed is slowed by the web and even more by having to reach down to attack. This in mind, what do you do?
    For Hermione's first battle, she was certainly doing well. She wasn't taking any damage, and the same could not be said for the Kangaskhan. Keith was beaming in pride, and Helena, Lily, and even Myrtle all looked mildly impressed at the little Bug-type's prowess.

    "Wow," remarked Helena. "Her-mi-o-ne is do-ing pret-ty good."

    "Nice job, Hermione," Keith grinned. "Let's keep this going, shall we? Poison Sting again, then use your Gummi Bomb attack! And this should go without saying, but dodge any attack you're able to!"

    I HAVE CLAIMED WEEZING. YOU ARE NOT WORTHY.

    Glitch City

    Missingno. Master: You all feel prideful at Hermione’s power, but it’s too early to just write off Kangaskhan. Naturally, they have tough defences and are known to be tough dealers of damage, too. Who knew what a glitch one could do? This time, the enemy is more prepared. It takes the Poison Sting to the foot, but kicks Hermione away. The Gummi Bomb has stuck to its stomach, but it merely tears it off and flings it to the wall.

    One way that your Pokemon is clearly lacking in, however, is an even levelling. The Kangaskhan goes forth and swipes up Hermione, taking a good Bite out of her. It deals a decent amount of damage, and just at that moment, the Gummi Bomb explodes. In that range, it hurts them both – especially Kangaskhan, and the foundation of the house begins to crumble. The wall caves, and the ceiling starts coming down, too! The glitch trainer seems unconcerned, his form phasing as the debris collapses, but the glitch Pokemon sustains damage from it. Being in Kangaskhan’s grip at least has an upside, as Hermione is largely unharmed, although there is now a cloud of dust obscuring vision for all parties.

    What do you do?

You want to overcome your great fear of water, but not only that, having the lives of Whale Island and your own weighing in the balance is a great motivational factor. Returning Sparow to his little ball, you take a few more deep breaths and run against the wind and rain. It’s cold, and the wind doesn’t help, and you feel yourself shivering away.

    Returning to the Effigy gives you a better view of the island. Delphin Harbour is not too far away, and your best hope right now of getting to the castle quickly. After all, it is a hub of activity, so it’s quite likely to have someone who can lend you assistance. Otherwise, on another shoreline, Shell Harbour is near enough the same, though it would take you longer to get there. Unfortunately, the bad weather means that most people will be hiding away, and the storm’s only going to get worse. Time is of the essence, before you’re forced to sail solo, or simply too late to beat this quest in time.

    What do you do?


    Tick tock tick tock, time was of the essence. The longer she waited the harder it would be to find help. Delphi was slightly closer than shell, which was enough that El was about to go there right off the bat. But something stopped her just before she set off, what was it the travel pamphlet had said? Delphi had been set up as a nice place to enjoy the shorefront, but Shell...

    Shell Harbour had a booming boat hire business. That was it! It shouldn't take too much longer to get there, and El had set off as soon as that thought entered her head. It mightn't be as popular, but there was a greater chance that she'd find someone willing to lend their boat to a complete stranger dead-set on sailing... through... a storm. Y-yeah, it's cool, she can take it. Just... just water. She had a scaredy-cat Seel who didn't seem to mind the sea, surely she could take it.

    Haa.

    El forced herself to keep going. No point in being scared this far inland. She was safe. For now. And really when you think of it the now is often more important than the future unless it deprives you of said future. Y-yeah, she could, or rather WOULD, deal with any stupid-fear-induced issues when they came up. Worrying about that now was only going to make that harder.

    Not that she was worried, why would she be worried? Yeah! She wasn't some random Lass caught up in events beyond her control, she was... A chosen hero! Off to fight for a noble cause! Fearless Hero El, here to save us all! Nothing could stop her now! That her blood plasma had to be roughly 50% adrenaline at this point wasn't because she was scared, she was just really really pumped to get her hero on. Anyone who said otherwise was being silly.

    Oh, who was she kidding? At least it was doing wonders for her stamina though. Look out world, here comes El! Shell Harbour or bust!

    "...Oh, f***," Keith muttered as Kangaskhan kicked Hermione away following the Poison Sting. Then, it peeled the Gummi Bomb off with little trouble and flung it onto the wall. "Oh, f***," Keith repeated. And then the Gummi Bomb exploded. Keith hastily stepped back as the house's foundation started to crumble, and a large cloud of dust obscured all. Immediately, Keith turned to his Venomoth. "Lily!" he said urgently. "Blow the dust away! Use Gust attack! And Hermione, make Kangaskhan loosen its grip with your Bug Bite!" Then wait for Lily to clear the dust, and launch another Electroweb!"

    Suicune’s Effigy

    LASL: You almost set off for the nearest of the two harbours until you recall the booming boat hire business of Shell Harbour, and decide to go there instead. It takes you a little while longer to reach there, but with the cold of the weather conditions and your adrenaline, you’re not as tired as you thought you would be when eventually you reach it. Still, you can’t help but catch your breath when you arrive, taking in the sights.

    There are warehouses in the distance, but unlike in most urban areas, very few are abandoned and security is top, with all of them sealed up well if you were to go in that direction. Undoubtedly you’ll have to pass close to a few as you’ll need to go along one of the piers to reach whichever boat you end up acquiring. As for the boat hiring stall itself, hunting it down and investigating it, you see that the booth is all closed up due to the storm!

    What now, you wonder? You’re soaked through, and at this rate, you’ll get sick before your mission is complete! There are cafes, bars and pubs along the coast. Given that it’s a place of commerce, there’ll surely be sailors, traders or even a helpful trainer or two that could help out. Alternatively, you have Minori the cowardly Seel and there might be other alternatives. What do you do?

    Glitch City

    Missingno. Master: You’re largely unscathed by the falling house, the pieces of which scramble and flash in their places, although the dust makes you cough and you curse through it all. Lily is to the rescue, blowing away the particles with a good Gust attack. Hermione ducks her tiny head and closes her eyes, and the dust gets to Kangaskhan, who loudly complains. It is even more vocal once the Weedle bites down, forcing it to throw her away.

    She lands with a little cry, but is determined not to lose. The little creature fires off another Electroweb from its barb, and once again the opponent is all caught up in the shocks and slowed down some. It’s beginning to get frustrated and ends up in a Rage, doing its best to clear the shocking string from its path before turning aggressive eyes on poor Hermione, who is the sole target of its tantrum!

    What do you do?

    Keith grinned as Kangaskhan seemed to dislike all the dust, and as Hermione's Bug Bite forced it to let go, Keith grinned even more. This grin faded, however, as Kangaskhan flew into a Rage, and turned its aggressive eyes on Hermione.

    "Uh-oh," murmured Helena. "That can-not be good..."

    "That Kan-gas-khan is an-gry in-deed," Myrtle added. "I can taste the rage from here."

    Keith, meanwhile, knew the time to play it safe was over. If they didn't go for a powerful technique, who knows what the Kangaskhan would do? "Hermione! Firestream attack now!" Keith ordered. "Then use String Shot, and follow up with Poison Sting!"

    Missingno. Master: Desperate times call for desperate measures, and you indeed have gotten desperate. Unfortunately, the desperation costs you your Weedle. Firestream indeed delivers a lot of damage, and Kangaskhan stumbles back, conveniently crushing the door behind it and knocking it off its hinges. It even induces a burn! However, Hermione is left on the floor, herself covered in burns and knocked out. It had not only cost her all of her energy, but using such a powerful attack that wasn’t of her type and caused severe damage.

    Your stomach churns at the sight. The raging Kangaskhan can only be healthy for Myrtle and Helena, who could probably absorb it slowly and use it to the Pokemon’s disadvantage and to increase the older Shuppet’s wellbeing. However, your team were falling like flies. It had been your dream to be involved in something like this, but it was not how you imagined. It was not simple or easy, even with a former Missingno. in your party. If anything, for the future you now knew not to walk in so unprepared.

    Kangaskhan grunts, shuddering under its infliction. Lily was the source of the gust attack, and apparently, was its next target. It has plenty of energy to spare, buts its health is now questionable, and deteriorating thanks to Hermione’s sacrifice. What do you do?

    Keith gasped as it became evident that Hermione's Firestream, while proving very effective on the Kangaskhan, even burning it, had not been so kind to its user; Keith's Weedle lay on the floor, burned and KO'd.

    "Hermione!" Keith gasped. "I don't get this. I mean, I know she's a Bug-type and Firestream is a Fire move, but Scorpius can always get off a Flamethrower and still have gas in the tank!"

    "May-be it will come with ex-pe-ri-ence and prac-tice," Helena suggested, though she looked visibly upset at how things were working.

    Keith sighed as he withdrew Hermione to her Poke Ball. "You did really well, Hermione," he muttered to the sphere once its occupant was back in. "I'm proud of you." He sighed again as he sized up his situation. With two of his Pokemon out of commission, this was not going too well for him. His team was dropping at all too quick of a pace, and this realization was starting to hit him hard. Helena turned to look at her increasingly distraught trainer, and reflected on all the times she was in no position to help out. Then, her upset expression slowly turned to one of determination. As Lily flew forward to face off against the enraged Kangaskhan, the younger Shuppet cut her off.

    "Wha- Helena?!" Keith exclaimed as he noticed this. "What are you doing?"

    "I am ta-king this Kan-gas-khan down!" Helena replied boldly. "I do not care if I on-ly have two moves that will work, as long as they will do some-thing, that will be e-nough!"

    "But it could have Scrappy-" Keith started.

    "-and it could just as ea-si-ly have Ear-ly Bird," interrupted Helena. "And e-ven so, the burn will cut its at-tack pow-er. Please, Keith. I want to help."

    Keith sighed, though a grin started to form on his face. He was starting to get the idea that stubbornness was a common trait among Shuppet. "Very well," he said. "I can see there's no talking you out of this, so... Helena, go."

    Helena beamed at Keith before turning back to face the Kangaskhan.

    Now, Keith was starting to feel a bit more confident. He wasn't sure if this was wise at all, but just the fact that his Pokemon were so willing to help him out, it made him feel so good. "Alright, let's do this," he grinned confidently. "Helena, blind it with Flash, then go in for a Knock Off! Follow that up with another Knock Off!"

    "You can do it, lit-tle sis-ter," Myrtle added.

    I HAVE CLAIMED WEEZING. YOU ARE NOT WORTHY.

    Glitch City

    Missingno. Master: You’re astounded at the sight of your fallen Hermione, thinking on how Scorpius can use a Flamethrower and continue any skirmish he is involved in. Sadly, that isn’t the case here, but you tell her and her Poke Ball that you’re feeling proud regardless. Lily goes to finish the fight, but Helena cuts her off.

    “I am tak-ing this Kan-gas-khan down!” She announces boldly. You try to talk her out of it, pointing out that the foe might be able to overcome her immunity. The Shuppet knows the risks, but doesn’t care. Soon, you come round, and the grin that has surfaced on your face is responded to with a beam of reassurance and pride. Your team is stubborn, and will help you to the end, and this makes you feel happy.

    As you command, she first uses Flash to blind the adversary, and it works wonders. Its attack stat is going to be high by now, but if its accuracy is hindered, that means nothing. Indeed, an attempt at a Comet Punch misses completely, bringing down even more of the odd house. Some of the pieces fall through Helena, but hurt Kangaskhan, who has suffered two Knock Offs to its tough tummy, and falls back onto its hide. The baby in its pouch is wailing from distress, and that reignites its power. Looking as best it can through the new dust cloud, and blinking its eyes, Helena is dealt a Double Hit. Your anxiety was right – the opponent has Scrappy.

    If Helena isn’t careful, with the experience difference, she’ll be down fast. However, Kangaskhan sounds tired, and the loud baby is going to be a distraction, not to mention the problem of the burn. Time and strategy is of the essence. What do you do?

    Keith looked on anxiously as Helena launched into the battle, blinding the Kangaskhan with Flash, which succeeded in making its Comet Punch miss. The two Knock Offs the follow seem to deal decent damage, too, but when the baby in its pouch started to wail, it seemed to reignite the mother's power. Keith gasped audibly as the Kangaskhan's Double Hit made contact, confirming his suspicions about its Ability.

    "Helena-" began Keith.

    "I will be fine," the Shuppet interrupted, though the move had clearly done a number on her. "Kan-gas-khan is wea-ken-ing. I can do this! I know I can!"

    "Alright," Keith said, though the tone in his voice implied that he was not so certain. "Then use your Flash once more, Helena, and follow up with another pair of Knock Offs. Now that we know it's got Scrappy, you make sure to try and avoid any move it throws your way, you got it?"

    "Un-der-stood," the Shuppet responded.

    Myrtle, meanwhile, could sense her trainer's anxiety for Helena's well-being, and started feeding on that, partly for the sustenance, and partly in an attempt to try and make him feel better.

    Glitch City

    Missingno. Master: Hiding your anxiety from your Shuppet is impossible, and Myrtle begins to feed off it, trying to make you feel better whilst recovering her lost health and energy from before. Helena’s reassurance hasn’t done much for you, except to allow her more time to prove herself, and she does so, blinding the Kangaskhan before it can fully get back up with an intense Flash of light, and then knocking it off both feet.

    The Pokemon’s eyes stay closed a lot longer this time, and its breathing is laboured. Before you can even order more attacks, it leers at Helena before collapsing back and disappearing in a flurry of pixels. The trainer that had commanded the battle in perfect silence does the same, and Helena gains a level-up, with a little help from a fainted comrade.

    With the fight over with, you let out a sigh of relief. Your knees are weak, and it’s now that you notice a mixture of panic and adrenaline has made your body shake. Thankfully, the road to the coast is now clear, and walking through the rubble of the broken house, you take a straight and clear path down to the beach. The sand here is undisturbed, as is the water... Albeit not for long. Before you know it, the tide has begun coming in, and each time the waves crash in and out, it’s a little bit faster than before. Soon, you’re more than knee-deep in water, and looking back, it’s as if you’ve been pulled away from Glitch City without even realising it. Something is about to happen. That something, rising out of the depths, is the ten foot tetris block from the Black Swan. Its figure, what looks like a mass of data, towers over you from a short distance away.

    You have found Missingno. What do you do?

    The match raged on. Helena let loose her Flash and followed up with Knock Off, and this time, the Kangaskhan took a while to get back up, its breathing labored. Before Keith could open his mouth to order another attack, Kangaskhan gave a sudden Leer... before collapsing and vanishing in a flurry of pixels, with its silent trainer following suit. Keith sighed a relief as Helena grew from level 1 to level 2, and then a giant grin came across his face as Helena turned to face him, beaming with pride in what she had just done.

    "You did it, Helena," Keith grinned. "You won your first battle, that was great!"

    "That... that was awe-some!" Helena exclaimed, ecstatic at her achievement. "My first time bat-tl-ing as a Po-ke-mon and I real-ly won!"

    "Once this is over," Keith said, "To celebrate, I'm gonna buy you the TM of your choice. Anything you'd like to learn in particular?"

    "I would love to know Psy-chic," Helena said. "If that is O-K, I mean."

    "Of course it's OK, Helena," smiled Keith.

    "You were fan-tas-tic, lit-tle sis-ter," said Myrtle, also smiling.

    Once they had finished celebrating Helena's first victory in battle, they headed out of the house, past the rubble and the wreckage, and found it a straight path down to the beach. The sand and water were perfectly undisturbed, but before long, the tide started coming in at an alarming rate. Keith looked back, but it seemed as though he had been pulled away from Glitch City without his knowledge. And then...

    "Look!" gasped Helena.

    Keith and Lily wheeled around and saw what Helena was gaping at; the ten-foot form of Missingno., not far from where they were standing. Slowly, Keith waded a little closer to the strange and wonderful Pokemon, and for a moment, wasn't sure what to say, several questions going through his mind. He did speak up after a few moments, however, having decided on one of them to start with. "Missingno.," Keith said, "Did you bring us here for any particular reason?

    Glitch City

    Missingno. Master: You decide to approach Missingno., although you are wary, wading through the waters. It is hovering above the waves, tilted at an angle as if indefinable eyes are staring down at the party before it. It chooses to answer in screeches which are illegible to you, but not to your Pokemon, and a few of them are capable of translating.

    It tells you that it brought you to Glitch City so that you and Myrtle can face up to your pasts and move on, and also so that you can face the challenges that you’ve been aspiring to for such a long time. On the rare occasions the location gains visitors, they don’t normally stay, with it or another glitch returning it to the regular world. However, you sought it out, rather than stumbling upon it by accident. That sets you apart from the rest of the city's visitors, and though it doesn't convey this in its warbled speech, Missingno. felt touched by that.

    It waits, apparently wanting to know if you had any more questions to ask. Do you?

    As Keith asked Missingno. why it had brought them to Glitch City, the fabled creature responded, albeit in screeches which were not legible to the trainer. His Pokemon, however, were capable of understanding Missingno. language, and Myrtle translated the reply.

    "Mis-sing-no. says that it brought us here so you and I could face up to our pasts, and move on," Myrtle said. "On the rare oc-ca-sions there are vi-si-tors here, they do not nor-mal-ly stay, with one of our kind re-tur-ning the vi-si-tor to the re-gu-lar world, but we ac-tive-ly sought it out in-stead of stum-bling on it by ac-ci-dent." She paused, then whispered to Keith in Shuppet language, "Missingno. did not say this, but I can sense that it is touched by that."

    Keith looked back up at Missingno., who seemed to be waiting for him to ask anything else on his mind. Keith did have one more question, though he probably already knew what the response would be. Still, he'd never know unless he asked, would he?

    "Missingno., I do have one more question," Keith said. "Would you... would you like to come with us? I'll understand if you would rather stay here, of course, but trust me when I say that you would be more than welcome on my team." As he said this, he dug a red and green festively decorated sphere out of his backpack- a Christmas Ball- and held it out to Missingno., awaiting its response.


    OOC: I know what my character is asking of Missingno. is highly unlikely, if not downright impossible, and I'll understand completely if the response is what I think it will be, but he would be acting so jarringly out of character if he didn't at least try.

    ((Lol, you're right. It is impossible. Silly point, that one.))

    Glitch City

    Missingno. Master: Myrtle does all of the translating that she needs to do, and a little bit more on top of that. It is then that you ask your last question, offering the creature a spot on your team within a Christmas Ball. It speaks to you all again, this time with a polite rejection. Not only does it belong in the Mystery Zones and Glitch City, it tells you, but it needs to be there. It needs to protect the others of its kind, and the few people like yourself that come into trouble that it can save.

    At that moment, you find yourself pushed back some distance, the salty sea spraying you and your open party. Missingno. has its last challenge for you: a battle. This time, it won’t be with a glitch Pokemon or trainer but its grand self. You’ve struggled, but come so far, it would seem a shame to bow out now. Furthermore, you also know that Missingno. could be your only route home, and as much as you may or may not be tempted, you cannot stay in this place for the rest of your life.

    Do you accept Missingno.’s final challenge?

    Missingno. replied to Keith's question, and according to Myrtle, the response was just as he had anticipated; no. Missingno.'s place was in the Mystery Zones and Glitch City, and it needed to be there, to protect the others of its kind, and the few visitors to this place. Keith and Myrtle nodded in understanding, and then Keith found himself getting pushed back a distance; it became apparent that Missingno. had one more challenge to issue- a battle. Keith thought about this- he had come this far, it seemed a shame to back out now, as much damage as his team had sustained. Furthermore, a battle against Missingno.... When was he ever gonna get another opportunity like this, and more to the point, who would be stupid enough to reject such a once-in-a-lifetime chance? Slowly, an excited grin spread across Keith's face.

    "I accept your challenge, Missingno.," he said. He then pointed forward and called out, "Lily, I choose you!"

    Immediately, the Venomoth that had been accompanying them fluttered forward to face off against Missingno. She hovered in place, awaiting orders.

    "Lily, use Supersonic!" Keith ordered. "Follow it up with a Giga Drain, and then use Sludge Wave!"

    Missingno. Master: As much damage as your team has sustained, you can’t help but grin. When are you ever going to get another chance like this? You declare your acceptance, sending forth your trusty Venomoth. Lily’s wings beat hard and she sends out strong, supersonic waves which send the waters upwards, splashing against a dizzied Missingno. The attack worked, and not only that, but as ineffective as Giga Drain was in terms of type matchup, Lily needed some of her health restoring.

    It goes to attack you, but only ends up hitting itself in its confusion, leaving it wide open for your team member’s Sludge Wave. Trying to avoid with such a large body is difficult in its state despite its good speed. In the end, you’ve finished this round with a good advantage – Lily has restored some of her previously lost health and come off unscathed, whilst Missingno. flounders from the Supersonic. Both have a good lot of energy left. What will you do?

    "Good, good," grinned Keith, for Lily was off to a decent start- her Supersonic was doing its job very well, the Giga Drain had its intended effect of restoring some of Lily's health, and the Sludge Wave hit its mark. "Way to go, Lily! Let's keep it up!"

    "Do not get o-ver-con-fi-dent, though," warned Myrtle. "Re-mem-ber, Her-mi-o-ne star-ted out well a-gainst that Kan-gas-khan..."

    "Right," nodded Keith. "OK, Lily, let's give it a taste of your Stun Spore! Follow it up with Confusion, and then use another Sludge Wave!"

It takes you a little while longer to reach there, but with the cold of the weather conditions and your adrenaline, you’re not as tired as you thought you would be when eventually you reach it. Still, you can’t help but catch your breath when you arrive, taking in the sights.

    There are warehouses in the distance, but unlike in most urban areas, very few are abandoned and security is top, with all of them sealed up well if you were to go in that direction. Undoubtedly you’ll have to pass close to a few as you’ll need to go along one of the piers to reach whichever boat you end up acquiring. As for the boat hiring stall itself, hunting it down and investigating it, you see that the booth is all closed up due to the storm!

    What now, you wonder? You’re soaked through, and at this rate, you’ll get sick before your mission is complete! There are cafes, bars and pubs along the coast. Given that it’s a place of commerce, there’ll surely be sailors, traders or even a helpful trainer or two that could help out. Alternatively, you have Minori the cowardly Seel and there might be other alternatives. What do you do?

    ((Psst, my Seel's name is Justin, Minori belongs to Kaisap.))

    Darn! El was too late, the shop was closed and being out in the rain for so long was starting to take its toll. At least she wasn't coughing up blood, that was a plus. And even if she was in top condition, Delphi was too far away now. She had to make the best out of her choice, and that right now included 'getting dry'.

    Which was probably the top priority of everyone else around, actually. Which in turn meant it probably wouldn't be too hard to find someone willing to sympathise. She let out a few more coughs and waited to catch her breath before dashing off towards the more touristy area, away from the warehouses. Even if they weren't maintained so well El could never bring herself to steal, anyway.

    Her mad (hopefully) final dash gave her a good view of the ocean. The swells were... she did her best not to think about them, eep.

    It was pretty obvious when she reached the commerce section, there was a bar or cafe for every second souvenire shop. The adrenaline was starting to abandon her, and it was just about one of the worst experiences she'd had this side of drowning. Her muscles were aching and tired, more than ready to give in under her own weight. And the burning in her chest, she couldn't breathe fast enough! It was not something she ever wanted to go through again, certainly, but right now it was an unparalelled oppertunity. It was time to turn the pathetic and desperate gauges up to the max.

    "h-HELP P-p-PLE-Ease! I... I got... STUCK in the... inth, STORm! A-anyone p-PLease! ANYONE!"

    On and on she wailed as best as she good while completely puffed. It was hard work in its own right, being so loud, but if she couldn't be heard over the storm it was all useless. And on the off chance she attracted somebody with icky intentions, well, no one expects the tiny helpless blonde girl to have a scyther.

    Missingno. Master: Myrtle reminds you not to get overconfident. Hermione began well with that Weedle, but the tables soon turned, and that appears to be the case here. Lily goes straight in for a Stun Spore, but Missingno. has shaken off its confusion and bursts through the attack with a jet of water. It pushes the flying bug backwards, and before she can use her confusion, Missingno. has soared up into the sky.

    Before Myrtle can even warn you to what’s next, Missingno. descends at an alarming speed, using its Sky Attack. Lily fires her Sludge Wave, which is a direct hit, but is then shot into the sea. Missingno. passes you by in a golden light, returning to its previous spot, awaiting your next move. Lily’s newly recovered health is gone, and so is some more – that Sky Attack was quite the blow. Myrtle was right not to celebrate too soon. What will you do?

    Shell Harbour

    LASL: You already feel like you’re on your last legs. It’s hard to breathe, you’re feeling heavy, tired and there’s a burning in your chest. Unfortunately, you can’t afford to stop now, and as pathetic as you feel, you decide that sympathy is the best tactic. “H- help! P- p- please! I... I... got STUCK in the... inth, STORm!” You start, hoping that you can be heard over the powerful gales. At first it seems like nobody’s heard you, and then a sailor decked out in mostly white comes out of one of the nearby pubs.

    “Hey, kid?” He asks, looking down at you. His belly’s big, but you get the impression from his arms and legs that some of it may be muscle and not fat, “What’re you doing screaming out there? Come on inside out of the rain! Are you crazy?” Before he can demean you more or shut the door on you, you tremble your way inside, where it is dry and considerably warmer. It’s dark, and whilst not silent, it isn’t as busy as other establishments might be. Most of the guests are either loners or regulars from the same gang.

    “You got money for a drink? Get something warm.” The stranger advises, returning to his spot where a coffee awaits him. You’re attracting attention already with many eyes on you, and you haven’t even spoken or done anything weird yet! What do you do?

    ((Lol, so it is. Sorry about that. So many nicknames and I don't always check.))

    "Uh-oh," Keith muttered as he saw Missingno. soar into the sky. Myrtle couldn't warn him in time, but he didn't need her to, he knew the kind of attacks Missingno. could learn- why do you think he taught Myrtle Water Gun and Sky Attack? Lily unsteadily rose back into the air after the devastating blow.

    "Mooooth," she groaned.

    "We can still do this, Lily," Keith said encouragingly. "Use your Icy Wind attack! Follow up with Signal Beam, and if it tries another Sky Attack, use Harden!"

    Missingno. Master: Lily carefully rises back up into the air, although she’s unsteady with her body soaked in water. Using Icy Wind comes unnaturally to her, but she manages it anyway, and Missingno. is struck. Signal Beam is a little weaker, but finally, your side is making some real leeway. At the sight of the colossal Pokemon taking off, your steady uses Harden just as commanded, but it isn’t a Sky Attack that’s being used. The L-shape bends almost unnaturally, and it is revealed that instead, Missingno. is tightly binding around Venomoth’s body, squeezing it tightly!

    Lily is immobilised, and whilst the damage is minimal, it won’t stay that way. The large captor sweeps her up into the sky, their bodies enveloped into that same aura as before. Then it comes crashing down, slamming your Pokemon into the sand beneath the sea before rising up. The damage sustained by Lily is far greater than Missingno.’s, but to expect this battle to be easier than the others – which were hard enough – would have been a foolish prediction.

    What will you do?

    "Wait, what?" Keith said as Missingno.'s body began to bend unnaturally. "It knows Bind?"

    "Ap-par-ent-ly, some of my kind can in-deed learn Bind," Myrtle replied. "I did not see that com-ing, how-e-ver."

    Missingno. then unleashed another Sky Attack, and Lily was not looking that good- she was still conscious, but had clearly taken much more damage than Missingno. Keith knew that at the rate Missingno. was getting off these attacks, the battle was as good as lost. So what to do? Why, stop the attacks from coming, what else?

    "OK," said Keith. "Lily, Sleep Powder now! Then use Giga Drain, and follow up with Sludge Wave!"

    "Why didn't you just order Sleep Powder from the start?" asked Myrtle in Shuppet language.

    "Haven't been having the best of luck with that move lately," Keith replied, also in Shuppet language. "But desperate times call for desperate measures."

    Missingno. Master: You are evidently taken aback that Missingno. knows Bind, but while Myrtle was aware that it was a possibility, she did not see it coming. Desperate times calls for desperate measures, something that you have conveyed to the Shuppet in her mother tongue. You have ordered Lily to use Sleep Powder first, something which you haven’t had luck in recently, but this time, it appears to work. The silver glitter falls all over and around your enemy, and it falls into an unscheduled slumber.

    This is the time you use to recuperate some of Lily’s lost health, and Giga Drain does just that. Again, however, the flying resistance doesn’t help you, but it’s something, and the Sludge Wave smacks against the great wall of pixels. At the end of the turn, Lily has restored some of herself and began significantly chipping away at Missingno.’s. She has less energy than it, but for now, your challenger is still asleep. What do you do?

    "OK, Lily, you're doing great," Keith called.

    "Moth... Moth..." panted Lily in response.

    "I think you had bet-ter be care-ful of her en-er-gy, Keith," advised Helena. "Per-haps you should switch?"

    "To what?" asked Keith. "Anything else I got is gonna be even worse off than Lily, she's the highest level thing I got on hand right now. No, it's her that's gotta finish it," he stated. "Besides, it looks like she's doing a good number on Missingno.'s health. Alright, Lily, let's use Sludge Wave again! Follow it up with Silver Wind, and if Missingno. wakes up at any point, hit it with a Supersonic!
