-==IC: ?? - Ellen Time, Lilycove City==-

The man in the blue cloak looked at the girl oddly, and waved his hand in front of her face, to no reaction. Standing up, he shrugged, and began to walk away, however, paused, and began to walk back. However, as he did so, he accidentally tripped over his own feet, and then fell right on top of her by accident.

IC: "I have a guess Lucia," the Rocket agent whispered to her companion before speaking up.

 

"Fair enough madam," Jamie said before curtsying to the group before her. "Surely we forgotten our manners, and I apologize."

 

"However, I would like to inform you of a slight problem you have."

 

"From the impression your cohort has given thus far and your own lack of awareness of the situation. That you would seem to antagonize members of Team Rocket with your numbers exceeding those of the first group to arrive by four, I can only conclude one thing. You have accidentally sewn your emblems on backwards."

 

Her lips turned upwards ever so slightly, with a slight mischievous look crawled on her face.

 

"Stupid starts with an S."

-==IC: Lucia==-

Lucia smiled just about the same way, somehow resisting the urge to burst out laughing, as she just nodded, and walked over to Jamie, patting her on the back.
"Well done, just, well done." Lucia said, impressed at the statement made by her friend, which, given everything that had happened so far, was really seemingly true.

IC: Ryan
Everything happened at once. And from his perch upon Togie, flying just above the rooftops of Opelucid, Ryan was able to see all of it. Or most all of it. The Liberty agent had been preoccupied with the sudden arrival of three Ancient Darkrai, so he was surprised when he happened to glance down and notice a young woman with an Elgyem extending a hand toward Jupiter. Ryan barely had time to process this, however, before he saw Evan step forward and deliver a powerful punch to the man calling himself Kane. The man reeled, and then, suddenly looking a lot like Seth, vanished with the Darkrai that had been fighting alongside him.
 
Sensing the fighting had come to a halt, Ryan urged Togie to the ground, landing next to Sonja and Ray. "I wouldn't celebrate just yet," he warned them. "We've still got those other three Darkrai to deal with. I don't know if they're on the same side as that Kane guy, but I've faced that one -- Seven -- before. I trust him about as far as I could throw him." He cautiously glanced around, trying to see if the people of Opelucid had returned to normal upon Kane's vanishing. He looked back at his two friends and noticed that Sonja was still holding her Lilligant in a tight embrace while Ray looked on, his Pokémon standing in a circle around the Unovan girl. "Er... am I interrupting something?"

IC: Ellen
By midday, the path had veered off to the left and dead-ended at a large bay. The ominous form of Mt. Pyre towered above, its peak hidden by the low clouds.

"Well, I guess we're swimming, then," Ellen said with a frown. "It looks pretty far, though." Chrono gave a sharp hiss. He had never been too fond of water, but after yesterday's little adventure he was determined to keep all four paws firmly planted on dry ground.

Artemis shook her head and walked over to a nearby tree. Ellen watched in confusion as the Mienshao started punching and kicking at the tree until it was uprooted. Artemis dragged the tree down to the water and balanced on top of it.

"Oh, I get it!" Ellen exclaimed. "We can build a raft. Great idea, Artemis!"

For the next couple hours, the companions worked on fashioning their raft. Artemis and Terry worked to uproot the trees, Maturin and Duo helped gather vines, and Ellen latched the trees together. Even Chrono helped by cutting off the remaining branches from the trees -- although several times he also cut through the vines with a mischievous sneer. Little by little their creation formed together, and before long they were looking at a rough makeshift raft.

"Well, it's not the prettiest boat in the world, but at least it'll float," Ellen smiled.

IC: Paul Burks
After hours of scouring the treetop city, Paul learned from various citizens that when Ellen wasn't helping in the reconstruction, she would often explore the forest with her Pokémon. And so Paul's search had taken him to the trees. When they arrived at a small clearing, Scar quickly flew up to a nearby tree and pointed down to the center of the clearing. Then he fluttered down to where he had been pointing and walked a few paces.

Paul stared at the metallic bird in confusion before realizing what the Skarmory meant. "You're saying this is where you saw Ellen yesterday?" he asked excitedly. The Skarmory nodded. "Excellent! I knew I could count on you, Scar. We're on the right track. If we follow the trail, it should lead us straight to Ellen."

They continued to walk until the trees thinned out and they came to a steep cliff that led down to a river. There was a bridge about a mile or so upstream, and a waterfall lay roughly half that distance downstream.

But what drew Paul's attention was a variety of gashes in the nearby trees. "I'm no Pokémon expert," he said, "But those look like the markings of a Zangoose. And look at the wavy line in the dirt. I daresay that was a Seviper."

Beside him, Kimber looked from the markings to Paul and back to the markings with a frown. The Torkoal shook her head in disay.

"You're right, that doesn't mean that Ellen was here," Paul agreed. "But if she was, she might have run into those two Pokémon in the middle of one of their battles." The thought of his daughter wandering into the midst of such a ferocious battle made Paul's heart constrict within his chest.

Bisharp walked over to the trees and examined the battle scars. Below the large gashes were three smaller ones which were much closer together. It was clear that the smaller scratches could not have been made by the Zangoose.

"Probably some other wild Pokémon," Paul shrugged when Bisharp showed him his findings. "A Zigzagoon, perhaps. I wish I knew more about Pokémon claw marks." The blacksmith knelt down to get a closer look. "It's definitely too small to have been made by Terry. But wait... Ellen had a Purrloin with her when she came home for Christmas! The darn thing kept throwing our ornaments in the fireplace..." Paul frowned, trying to determine whether or not the claw marks could have been made by a Purrloin. "Ah, I give up!" he cried, tossing up his arms. "For all I know, it's just some wild Rattata or something."

Scar circled around the area, trying to get an aerial view. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary, until his keen eyes spotted a shred of pink cloth amongst the gray and brown stones that composed the rocky cliff leading down to the riverbank. Diving down, Scar picked up the scrap of cloth in his beak and returned to Paul.

Ellen's father rubbed the cloth between his fingers. "Ellen," he muttered. "You don't think she..." Paul's voice faltered as he stared at the river in horror. For a moment, everything was silent except the roar of the nearby waterfall.

-==IC: Adam (Eterna City)==-
In the City of Living History, a lone blue Pokémon wandered the abandoned streets. Though the city had escaped major devastation from the attack that felled Nova just north of the city, the panic the base's destruction had caused had prompted the local authorities to instruct the residents to remain in their homes for safety's sake. The enforcement of the curfew, however, was light, as the superstitions amongst Eterna's populace ran rampant even amongst the city's law enforcement, resulting in nearly the entire force being too busy looking over their shoulders for monsters from childhood fairy tales to properly perform their duties. The end result was a seemingly empty city, virtually unguarded, through which visitors and Pokémon could freely wander unimpeded.

As the Pokémon wandered, she saw a flash of pink light atop the hill ensconsing the city's famous monument. With a chirp of meddlesome inquiry, Pippi raced forward to investigate.


-==IC: Amanda==-
Amanda frowned as the events unfolded around her. Nodding to Jupiter, she looked back at the girl who'd had such an odd response to her arrival. "Amanda Zarth. We should talk later."

Recalling her Magnezone, she took Jupiter's hand. "Elgyem, we're taking Admin Jupiter home, on my mark." Switching her Pokéballs for her C-Gear, noting the time before repeating the gesture that had brought her there.

A flash of pink light later, and they were gone.

---Eterna City, Sinnoh---
The two materialized atop a hill, the statue of a combined forme of Palkia and Dialga looming large over them. "Eterna City," she stated, releasing the other woman's hand. She returned her C-Gear to its pocket, swapping it this time for a Pokéball and a business card. Transferring the Pokéball to her other hand, she offers the card to Jupiter. "If you'd like transport elsewhere, my Elgyem will require only a brief rest before it is ready for further transit. Otherwise, we hope you will call on us again if you pick up any additional intelligence on the force that destroyed Nova." Though it features the Plasma Agent's name and C-Gear number, it is otherwise a generic Team Plasma card, with contact info for the general communications hub printed in smaller typeface beneath her own.

However, as he did so, he accidentally tripped over his own feet, and then fell right on top of her by accident.


-==IC: Amelia Zann==-
In her sleep, Amelia felt the impact of something heavy and warm against her body. It wasn't entirely unpleasant--for the split second before her combat reflexes kicked in.

Jabbing her knee upward rapidly, she immediately reversed the motion, launching herself into the air. A moment later, she was suspended from the brick wall several feet above the man by a shuko climbing claw. The other held a Dive Ball with a deep red band painted around its center, the device pointed straight at the man as it released its occupant. A moment later, a bright-green-and-aqua Carvanha sat on the pavement, snapping its jaws harshly at the blue-cloaked figure.

"Got a good reason Van here shouldn't tear you in half, stranger? 'Cause I've got at least three why he should."

-==IC: Amelia==-
"One, you're a mysterious guy in a dark cloak roaming the alleys by night. Not the most trustworthy modus operandi. Two, you apparently sneak up on and tackle women for unknown, possibly nefarious purposes. Don't think I need to go further. Three..." Amelia's lips curled into a savage grin. "You were too stupid to run. Bite!"

The grin did a good job of hiding it, but Amelia was unnerved. The embrace, however brief, followed by the rush of danger had sparked something in her subconscious...and somehow she knew that when she figured out whatever it was, she wouldn't like it.

Alistair sighed, inwardly amused at the last 'reason'; however, he found footing with his feet, and kicked off backwards to actually get off the ground, barely managing to escape the jaws of doom, as Alistair grabbed the Pokeball that contained his Scizor quickly, and sent it out, standing up again finally.
"Just saying, while I'll give you the first reason; though the cloak's more for looking cool; the last two aren't exactly correct." Alistair said, as his Scizor stood by him, ready to act when necessary.
"First off, I tripped over my own feet, that 'tackle' wasn't on purpose. Secondly..." Alistair smiled at this,as his Scizor stood in a ready position.
"I never run."

Amelia steeled her gaze as Van, moving much faster than initially anticipated, launched itself forward to Bite the stranger's Scizor, hoping the Steel-type would flinch from the ferocity of her attack so she could follow up on it.

Ray looked startled, as Ryan suddenly fell from the sky. However, in response to Ryan's question, he frowned.
"Shhh, can't you see she's having a nice moment with her Pokemon? Give her a minute or two!" Ray said quietly to Ryan, having accidentally forgotten about what had happened earlier with the accidental overlook of the fact that Ryan had been there.

-==IC: Alistair==-

Alistair smiled, as he pulled his scarf over his mouth, getting serious, as his Scizor seemed to steel itself for an impact... And then shot up quickly like a drill and then returned to normal as it slammed downwards with a Bullet Punch toward the Carvahna.
"Come on and slam..." Alistair said, as the Scizor whirled and used X-Scissor on the Carvahna right after that.
"And welcome to the jam."

IC: Aspen/Olivia/Dahlia Seaton

Aria looked on as Alistair moved away. "You're right, Master Alistair. I won't ever forget you. May our paths cross again." the Lucario called out to her former trainer, turning back to Aspen. "Alistair believes in you, and I do too. I won't disappoint you." the Lucario finished, having taken on a new path for the future.

Aspen looked at the ground and shifted slightly. Praise had been a difficult thing for him to accept for as long as he could remember, so he remained silent. Dahlia placed a reassuring hand on his shoulder, allowing him to muster up a few words. "Aria, first I welcomed you to the team. But you're also family now." said Aspen, bringing out each and every one of his Pokemon. "If I'm gonna grow, I hope all of you can be there every step of the way." Aspen finished. His Pokemon nodded, Aria as well, causing Aspen to smile slightly. "Thanks."

Dahlia and Olivia looked at each other. "I hope Alistair will be alright." Dahlia mused. "He's really not a bad person." Olivia looked back as Alistair made his way out. "I wouldn't worry about it. After all, he still has his Pokemon to accompany him." Olivia said, looking to Amethyst and other members of her team. "Now then... I think our work is done here." Olivia said to Zach and Ryan.

OOC: Yeah yeah, horrible writing, I know. I tried though.

"Right, lets go. Come on Jacob, we should follow her." Jake suggested to Jacob. " Machop, return." With a flash of light, Machop disappeared into his Pokeball, which Jake shrunk with the tap of a button and clipped it to his belt. He turned and followed Ruth towards the campsite. He walked up alongside her and asked, "So what brings you to Sinnoh? I don't think I ever got around to asking".

OOC: No Ryan IC yet; I think I'll wait for Parugi to post first.

IC: Dack
From the Survival Area, the group made their way toward the imposing form of Stark Mountain. The path was even more rugged than Route 225, and only became increasingly difficult as they approached the mountain.

"Can you guys move any slower?" Luke gloated from the top of a ledge.

"Say that again, and I'll have Anzu freeze your mouth shut," Madison snapped as she carefully maneuvered across the rocky terrain.

"Man, I guess need to use the stairs in the Battle Tower more often," Palmer panted from the back of the group. "I've been relying on the elevator too much."

"Actually, an elevator's not a bad idea right now," Dack said. "Luke is right. At the rate we're going, it'll take all day just to get to the mountain. Swellow, come on out!" The bird Pokémon emerged from its ball and grabbed its trainer by the shoulders. Within seconds, Swellow had flown to the entrance to the network of caves that ran inside Stark Mountain.

"Always the impatient one," Palmer shook his head. "But he does have a point. Time is of the essence." The Tower Tycoon sent out his Dragonite. "Need a lift?" he asked Madison and Luke.

Madison gratefully climbed aboard the dragon. "Wimps," Luke muttered. Nevertheless, he accepted the ride and soon all four trainers were standing at the cave entrance.

"I don't mean to sound impatient," Dack muttered. "But you do realize that the longer this takes, the longer our culprit has to cover his tracks... or even plan his next attack."

"Man, I haven't seen you this serious since we took down the Void Tower," Luke said.

"The war has finally come to a halt, and we're seeing the first peace we've had in nearly twenty years. But whoever this culprit is, it seems like he's deliberately trying to upset this peace," Dack said darkly. "I won't allow that to happen, and I will not allow him to use my city as the battleground." Without waiting for a response, the trainer turned around and walked into the cave.

IC: Ellen
Using a long branch as an oar, Ellen guided the raft around the rocky shore of Mt. Pyre. Every now and then a small splash of water would find its way between the branches of their makeshift raft, and with Terry, Artemis, Maturin, Chrono, and Ellen all crowded together (Duo was floating above them), the ride was fairly cramped. To make matters worse, the further they got from Route 123's shore, the more the dull clouds seemed to blot out the sun. A thick fog soon settled in, and before long Ellen lost sight of the mountain.

"This doesn't make any sense," Ellen muttered. She glanced behind her, but the distant shore had also been enveloped by the fog. "As we get closer, Mt. Pyre should be easier to see. So why could we see it clearly from the shore, but we can't see it up close?"

Maturin waved the leaf on his head through the fog, which was thick enough for the leaf to collect several dots of dew.

"Yeah, it seems like this fog just appeared out of nowhere," Ellen agreed. "That's not natural, is it?"

Artemis gave her a hard look. Natural or not, there was nothing they could do but try and move on.

"You're right, Artemis," Ellen shrugged. "We won't accomplish anything just sitting here." She continued to paddle in silence. But after several minutes, their situation had hardly improved. Ellen saw nothing but gray fog and murky water in every direction.

Ellen, I think we might be lost, Duo said as he started spinning frantically in circles.

"I hope we haven't veered off course," Ellen said, ignoring Duo and trying to remain calm. "Maybe it would be best to retrace our steps. But if we've been going straight the whole time, we should be nearly to the opposite shore by now, so maybe we should just keep going. Oh, now I'm starting to sound just like Duo!"

Hey, what's that supposed to mean? Duo asked incredulously.

Chrono scowled at his trainer's incompetence. He knew that Ellen had grown up near a river, but it was obvious that she had no idea how to pilot a boat, much less the bundle of logs she insisted on calling a raft.

Terry gave a loud bark. To their left, a small light had appeared, dimly glowing in the fog.

"That must be the shore!" Ellen cried with relief. She picked up the oar and started paddling as quickly as she could toward the light. As they drew closer, the distinct form of a coastline appeared. Ellen was able to make out what looked like a grassy field standing about a foot above the water. On the edge of the grass, right before the drop-off, a small candle glowed with a soft light.

"We owe it to whoever put this candle here," Ellen smiled as they reached the coast. She reached up and was about to climb ashore when a burst of flame sailed from the candle, almost singeing her fingers. Ellen fell back onto the raft in surprise. "What was that?"

Before her eyes, a small yellow eye appeared on the face of the candle. It was a Litwick.

-==IC: Alistair==-

Alistair smiled, as he pulled his scarf over his mouth, getting serious, as his Scizor seemed to steel itself for an impact... And then shot up quickly like a drill and then returned to normal as it slammed downwards with a Bullet Punch toward the Carvahna.
"Come on and slam..." Alistair said, as the Scizor whirled and used X-Scissor on the Carvahna right after that.
"And welcome to the jam."


"Van, Aqua Jet, now!" Unable to dodge the Bullet Punch, Van took the Steel-type hit like a champ, her Water typing helping her resist the hit. Propelling herself forward between the Scizor's legs on a lightning-fast jet of water, she dodged the X-Scissor by inches, spinning around and repeating the attack directly now that her target was off-balance and facing away from her.

"Scizor, you know what to do." Alistair said, as the Scizor spun around, taking the Aqua Jet like the Carvahna had done; and then following that up with a reverse order attack of what he just did; using the X-Scissor first instead because of being so close, then a Bullet Punch to attempt to attack after that.

OOC: Fun fact, April 22 is the day I set as Ellen's birthday. As such, I went back and fixed the formatting on this post. At some point I'd like to fix the formatting on all my old stuff, but this will have to do for now. In the meantime, enjoy the continuation of Ellen's plot. ^_^

IC: Ellen
"Sorry, I thought you were just a candle," Ellen said to the Litwick sitting on the coast. "But I do have to thank you for bringing us to dry land. This fog just came out of nowhere, and we must have sailed off course."

The Litwick listened to Ellen's story and gave a wide smile. But like the flame on its head, there was no warmth in the grin, and the Ghost-Type's eyes were full of malice.

"Um... is everything okay?" Ellen asked uncomfortably. "Look, I didn't mean to startle you--"

Without warning the Litwick shot another fireball, this one aimed at the raft. Ellen managed to block the attack with the oar, which promptly burst into flames.

Throwing the burning stick into the water, Ellen glared at the candle Pokémon. "If it's a fight you want, then it's a fight you'll get. Artemis, Aura Sphere!"

A glowing sphere formed in Artemis' hands. The Mienshao twirled about and sent the sphere flying toward the Litwick... and straight through it. Unfazed, the Litwick sent a Confuse Ray toward his would-be attacker.

"That's right!" Ellen slapped a hand to her head. "Ghosts are immune to Fighting moves. Sorry Artemis, but you're going to have to sit this one out. Terry, use -- ack!"

Ellen shrieked as she felt a sharp tug on the back of her hair. Whirling around, she saw a Misdreavus giggling wildly. A Banette appeared from out of the fog, and on the shore a small stump rose out of the ground, revealing a Phantump. As the assorted Ghost Pokémon surrounded the raft, Ellen realized that they had sailed straight into a trap. They had reached the shore, but not of the mainland. They were on Mt. Pyre.

Ellen's mind raced as the Ghost-Types moved in. Battling strategy had never been her strong suit, and she longed for the wisdom of someone like Ryan or Evan. Nevertheless, she was determined to put up a fight to the best of her abilities. "Terry, Fire Fang on the Phantump! Maturin, use Crunch on Misdreavus! Chrono, Pursuit on -- ack!"

The Misdreavus yanked her hair once more, this time with enough force to almost pull her off the raft. Even as Ellen's Pokémon leapt into action, two Frillish emerged from the water and grabbed onto the raft. The Frillish started to tip the boat, and another timely tug from Misdreavus sent Ellen tumbling into the water.

Gasping for air, Ellen grabbed on to the capsized raft and tried to make sense of the chaos that had erupted around her. Terry was desperately trying to get around the Litwick in order to strike at the Phantump, who was currently exchanging blows with Chrono. Maturin had apparently leapt toward the Misdreavus to attack with Crunch, but had then fallen into the water. The resilient turtle climbed ashore and started to pelt the Misdreavus with Seed Bombs. Above the murky water, Duo was sending Signal Beams toward one of the Frillish. Meanwhile, with her Fighting moves rendered powerless, Artemis could only use Calm Mind as she gracefully avoided the Banette's onslaught.

Ellen tried to clamber ashore, but before she could reach out for the grassy land, the second Frillish grabbed her by the ankle and dragged her down into the water's dark depths.

IC - Sonja Baron - Opelucid City: Sonja gave it another minute before returning the clearly-distressed Gaia. She shook her head at Ryan. "Gaia is very affectionate," she said. Then, glancing at the Pokémon surrounding her, "Um . . .I'm not sure that constitutes having an honor guard . . ."

 

IC - Kyle Eston - Opelucid City: With the rest of the group having moved to the other side of the square--where the citizens of Opelucid may or may not have begun to awaken from their trance; it was difficult to tell--Kyle was left as the closest one to the three Ancients. He was not sure how to feel about this. On the one hand, they were Ancient Darkrai--their very presence meant that he should have run for the hills long ago, in order to get as far away from them as possible. On the other hand, however, he remembered what had been a very key fact in their victory against Sombra: Two of the Ancients had fought alongside them. And while the stronger of the two--the one that had finished off Eight--did not appear to be in this group, the fact that the other one was suggested that while they may not necessarily have the world's best interests in mind, they could still possibly be trusted.

 

Particularly, since they had deflected Gaigan's Dark Void. That was another key observation, and the one that prompted Kyle to return his lower-level Pokémon back to their containers. Kitheus, however, remained at his side, and he was more than ready to release Suicune at a moment's notice.

 

Carefully, he edged towards the throne, speeding up when the Darkrai made no move to attack. He placed a hand on Evan's shoulder, helping the Plasma Agent to his feet. "You alright?"

 

Giving Evan a moment to recuperate, Kyle looked around the square again, still trying to process everything. Gaigan, Kain, the momentary reflection of Seth, the Darkrai . . . Just what had all of this been meant to accomplish . . . ?

 

IC - Jupiter - Eterna City: The teleportation-induced blurriness obscured Jupiter's vision, briefly hiding from her where, exactly, she had been taken to. When she was finally able to recognize the vague, but familiar shape of the Dialga and Palkia statue, however, she immediately yanked her hand away from Amanda. Any confusion on the Plasma Agent's part would have been easily excusable, particularly as the Galactic Admin quickly stepped back, drawing a Poké Ball from her belt.

 

"There is no way you're with Plasma," she said, voice quavering with panicked fury. "They wouldn't have sent someone to bring me here, of all places, to get me out of danger--not a day after my entire organization was annihilated." Jupiter held the Poké Ball forward. "You'd better explain yourself. Now."

 

IC - Ethan Worth/Gavin Braner/??? - Celadon Department Store: Aside from Lucia (and Tristan and Pelleas), no one was laughing. The blonde-haired woman raised an annoyed eyebrow, though otherwise did not respond. Behind her, several of her teammates appeared to glance at each other, mirroring Ethan and Gavin. The younger agent could find nothing else to do but turn and look pointedly at Jamie, wondering whether or not she had been paying attention two minutes ago when he had almost gotten sliced in half by the woman's Air Slash.

 

Ethan, surprisingly maintaining the most grounded air about him, rubbed his head and sighed. "Alright, enough throwing insults back and forth," he said, breaking the silence. The woman looked at him, expression either softening slightly or hardening even further--Ethan honestly could not tell. "We're all--" He paused, looking past her and picking out the boy from earlier. "--I mean, we're mostly all adults here. Why don't we introduce ourselves a bit, figure out just what is going on, and then maybe you'll consider coming with us? Let me start: Hi, I'm Ethan. This is Gavin, Lucia, and Jamie. Pleasure to meet you!"

 

"Hi, Ethan," a voice drawled out from behind the woman. One of the others visibly nudged them in them side, prompting a sharp, "Ow!"

 

The group's leader scoffed. "As if," she muttered. More audibly, "Fine, whatever--let's talk." She glanced back again at her group. "You may call us the Arbiters of Rayquaza, and our purpose here is to utilize this--" She held the green orb before her. "--the Wind Orb, to summon the Great Dragon here, and use its power for our own ends." She threw her head back, gesturing to her comrades. "The fine men and women behind me are Skye, Skylah, Skylark, Skya, Skyler, Skyle, and Skylon. Together, we form Team Zephyr. I am our leader, as you may have guessed, and my name . . ." She paused, pushing her hair back behind her ear. ". . . is Windy."

 

"Odd name out, huh?" Gavin muttered. Ethan waved a hand at him, half-trying to hit him, half-not really but still trying to shut him up. Windy ignored him.

 

"So, Rayquaza," Ethan said, curious, clearly thinking the same thing that everyone else was. "Interesting. I didn't know that Rayquaza had a Control Orb."

 

"As i--I mean, indeed," Windy corrected herself, still unused to Ethan's manner of addressing her. "We've done a fair bit of studying, you see. We know all about Team Magma and Team Aqua and their attempts to control Groudon and Kyogre. Once we read about their Orbs, it was only a matter of digging a bit deeper to figure out that Rayquaza had one and where to find it."

 

Ethan nodded. "Impressively sound logic," he said. "It's really lucky that no one else found it before you."

 

"Yup." Windy smiled proudly. "Now all that's left is to bring this to the point in Hoenn where we can do the most against the J-Man, and you--" She pointed at the Rockets. "--are standing in our way!" The entire group suddenly became very, very quiet, each of the four Rockets (and the Dedenne) exchanging looks with each other. Windy continued to point, eyes darting between all of them, hand lowering slowly. "Wait . . . What? What's the matter?"

 

"Um . . ." Ethan looked at his group, mulling over how to phrase what he was about to say. "Well, I mean . . . You're looking for a place in Hoenn? As in, a Hoenn Department Store? In Lilycove?"

 

It slowly dawned on Windy. "Oh, don't tell me . . ."

 

"Yeah . . ." Ethan rubbed his head again. "This is kinda . . . not Hoenn? You're in Celadon City. Kanto. You sort of overshot, there, friend."

 

Windy face palmed. "Skyler!" she yelled, her voice muffled. One of the boys behind her--the same one from earlier, incidentally--jumped, hiding behind the shorter girl next to him. "You were supposed to get us plane tickets to Lilycove!"

 

"I-I thought they were!" he answered weakly.

 

"As if!" Windy pulled her hand away from her face, cheeks red with anger. "Fine, whatever. I guess there's nothing to it, then . . ."

 

"So you'll come with us, minimizing your punishment by admitting to your mistakes and giving up on what sounds like a bit of a fruitless goal?"

 

Windy stomped her foot. "As if! No--we're a team of Flying-Type trainers! We can get from here to Lilycove in a heartbeat!"

 

Ethan, facepalming, could not stop his teammates from intervening any further. "Oh yeah?" Gavin said. "Well, you won't be flying in here, will you? And you're not exactly in a position to get to the roof with us around, either."

 

"No, I guess we won't," Windy said. "Luckily, there are plenty of windows to jump out of, and we only need one person to get out of here." She quickly pulled a whistle from her pocket, lifting it up. "TEAM! INITIATE OPERATION SCRAMBLED JETS!"

 

She blew into it, the ear-splitting shriek startling the group momentarily. It was enough time for Team Zephyr's members to rush forward, tossing the Green Orb between one another in rapid succession, so quickly that by the time the group split up and ran in eight different directions, no one could be entirely sure just who had ended up with the Orb or where they had gone.

 

Ethan blinked, taking a moment to process what had happened. When he had, he noted the looks he was getting from his team. "Ehehehe . . . Sorry, guys," he said, holding his hands up defensively. "Probably could've stopped 'em, huh?" He regained his composure, thinking. "Well, at any rate, we need to catch 'em all if we're going to stop them from summoning . . . summoning Rayquaza . . . hm." Ethan rubbed his chin, and then smiled. "Sooo . . . Let's split up and look for clues?"

 

IC - ???/Rocket Triad - Cianwood City: The Gym Leaders fought with sloppy form, no doubt a result of whatever madness had come to afflict them. Where once they had utilized near-flawless combat techniques, honed with decades of training and experience, all three now fought with what essentially consisted of random attacks and misguided directions. She saw little to no trace of the grace and strategy that had once come so second-handedly to them. Surge's tactical mind had been erased; his Raichu charged head-on, uncaring or unaware of the damage radiating into it from the splitting ground beneath it. Sabrina no longer used the environment to her advantage, choosing instead of mindlessly direct Psychics and Psybeams at a Pokémon on which they had no effect. And Koga . . . The man who had once battled side-by-side with his team now stood far back, locked in place while his Muk struggled to land a hit on the Swoobat above it.

 

How the mighty have fallen, the woman thought, closing her eyes. As someone who had spent virtually every moment since her first step learning how to fight, the dissolving of some of the greatest strategists that she had ever read about came as a huge disappointment. Though their styles remained in her library of information, their loss was truly a tragedy, one that she wished she could rectify and knew she couldn't.

 

Silently, she watched the raging battle. It was almost laughable, seeing the most simple of solutions to the Gym Leaders' problem elude them for so long. If they would only think to switch opponents--send Muk against Honchkrow, Raichu against Swoobat, Alakazam against Gliscor--they might have found some semblance of a chance against her. But as things stood, that was not going to happen. Honchkrow and Gliscor absorbed whatever was thrown at them; Swoobat simply dodged. It was pitiful.

 

"Enough," she called. "Finish this."

 

They did. Guillotine knocked Raichu out cold. A powerful Psychic turned Muk into a formless pool of muck. Alakazam fell to a Dark Pulse in the chest. The woman smirked.

 

"Good work," she said. "Now, since that's taken care of, what do you three say we all go and have a nice--?"

 

Three more flashes of light cut her off, temporarily blinding her. Lowering her arms, she now saw a Metagross, a Manetric, and a Venomoth in the street before her, all three angry and ready for action. Her eyelids drooped in annoyance.

 

"That could be problematic," she muttered. "All right--Gliscor, use--"

 

She was interrupted again as three attacks came out of nowhere from the rooftop above her. A Lucario shot forward, slamming into Venomoth with Extremespeed. A plume of fire erupted, accompanied by a roar from a Typhlosion, and struck Metagross. That left Manetric to take a Stone Edge from a Tyranitar that appeared in the air, landing heavily on the ground in front of her.

 

The woman looked up in surprise, appalled at the intrusion. Before her eyes, three trainers--a woman and two men--eased their way down, using their own skills to leap from one damaged pile of rubble to the next, until they could safely jump down into the street. They had barely landed when the woman produced a badge, virtually shoving it in her face.

 

"Selene Ashera of Team Liberty," she said. "We'll take things from here--get to safety."

 

"Team Liberty?" the other woman responded, stunned. She moved to step forward, but found herself blocked by Ashera's hand. She angrily pushed it away. "No, I will not 'get to safety,' and if you touch me again I'll break your wrist. I had this perfectly under control before you got here, I can continue keeping it that way." She cupped her hands around her mouth. "Gliscor, Earthquake! Honchkrow, Air Slash! Swoo--"

 

"Hey!" Silvermind interrupted. "Excuse me, kid, but I don't think you realize just what is going on--"

 

"And you people do?" The woman laughed. "Please--that's the worst joke I've heard all day. Swoobat, Supersonic!" She lowered her hands as her Pokémon moved to attack. "And for your information, ma'am, I am not a kid." She looked pointedly at Silvermind. "My name is Esen Windred. Now get out of my way."

-==IC: Ray==-

"Wanted to make sure nothing happened with the fight." Ray said, rubbing the back of his head awkwardly, as he recalled his Pokemon, inwardly cursing his inability to do things right. Ray looked over at where the battle was ending, wondering about the same things that Kyle had; what was the intent here? Why did stuff happen?

-==IC: Lucia==-

Lucia sighed.
"When does splitting up ever help?" Lucia asked, but shrugged.
"In this case, though, I gotta agree. 2:1 ratio instead if we split up... Assuming each of us finds two of them." Lucia said with a smirk.

IC - Jupiter - Eterna City: The teleportation-induced blurriness obscured Jupiter's vision, briefly hiding from her where, exactly, she had been taken to. When she was finally able to recognize the vague, but familiar shape of the Dialga and Palkia statue, however, she immediately yanked her hand away from Amanda. Any confusion on the Plasma Agent's part would have been easily excusable, particularly as the Galactic Admin quickly stepped back, drawing a Poké Ball from her belt.
 
"There is no way you're with Plasma," she said, voice quavering with panicked fury. "They wouldn't have sent someone to bring me here, of all places, to get me out of danger--not a day after my entire organization was annihilated." Jupiter held the Poké Ball forward. "You'd better explain yourself. Now."


-==IC:Amanda Zarth==-
Amanda frowned slightly, somewhat confused by the Team Galactic Admin's reaction. "On the contrary, if it is safety you are concerned about, this is most likely the safest location available to you; studies have shown that criminals are statistically unlikely to return to the scene of their crimes, and law enforcement activity in the area should be exceptionally high, though I will admit thaat it is unusual that we have not yet encountered them since we arrived. Furthermore, returning you elsewhere would be contrary to Team Plasma's interests and, by extension, interests of the local and global community; delaying the start of the reconstruction efforts would only serve to reinforce the economic panic that has set in in response to the crisis, not to mention the significant hit to economic, social, and political morale that would occur on both local and regional levels in response to Galactic Admin Jupiter deeming Eterna no longer safe for her residence. The greater good and stability of the region logically depends on your conducting, or at least authorizing, the reconstruction of Nova. Nonetheless, as I originally stated, my services in transport are at your disposal just as soon as my Pokémon has had a few minutes' rest." The Plasma Agent did not add that her superiors would also be interested in any firsthand data she could record on the exact status of Nova; given Jupiter's apparent emotional state, Amanda considered it possible that the Galactic Admin would take a request to do so unfavorably.

OOC: Speculation as to whether or not Amanda has a soul in 3...2...1... :P
 

-==IC: Alistair==-

Alistair raised an eyebrow at the tactic, impressed.
"Nice work." Alistair said with a smile from behind the scarf.
"Scizor, you know what to do." Alistair said, as the Scizor spun around, taking the Aqua Jet like the Carvahna had done; and then following that up with a reverse order attack of what he just did; using the X-Scissor first instead because of being so close, then a Bullet Punch to attempt to attack after that.


OOC: Auto hit granted.

-==IC: Amelia Zann==-
Amelia grinned as the stranger and his Scizor fell for the gambit. "Van, you've got this. Take him."

The Carvanha rocketed forward, its already high Speed increasing even further, to the point where the Water-and-Dark-type was a mere blur of aqua and green. Its fangs bared, it clamped onto the Steel-type with vicious fury, preventing its attack as it flinched back in pain. Fangs still clamped onto the Scizor, Van Aqua Jetted them both against the wall of the alley, the bricks cracking slightly from the force of impact. Only the blow of a Bullet Punch finally forced her to release her deathgrip, but both Trainer and Pokémon smirked (if a solid row of razor-sharp fangs could be said to "smirk") to see a nasty bit wound where the force of the Carvanha's jaws had nearly punctured through its opponent's armor.

The satisfaction was short-lived, however; though she resisted the Scizor's Steel-type attacks, Van would not be able to take another one, and the creature's stronger Bug-type blow would do her no favors either. With only one option available, Amelia commanded her Pokémon forward. "Aqua Jet," she called, and seemingly having anticipated the command, Van shot forward on one final jet of water, aiming to slam the Scizor between herself and the wall one last time before she went down...

OOC: Alex/Didi post tomorrow, it's late here. :)

EDIT: OOC: Aah, knew I'd forgotten something...

-==IC: Adam (Pippi)==-
Pippi scrambled up the hill just in time to see a strange-looking woman shove a Pokéball in her companion's face. She couldn't quite understand what they were saying, but just as she was about to get closer, the Elgyem beside her turned and noticed the new arrival.

"Ellllgyem?"

Hello?

"Pi pi pi!!!" Pippi shrieked at the unfamiliar sensation of mental contact, and scurried away down the hill as fast as her little legs could carry her. She didn't know what the strange creature was, but she knew just who could deal with it, and she was going to make him come back with her to help pay the odd little thing back if it was the last thing she did.

IC: Jamie merely sped by on top of a Bullet Punching Metagross because despite wanting to let the others have it, she decided actually solving the problem was of more importance than talking about it at this point. There were plenty of times for talking about a problem. Discussing and planning were fine at most times, but at this point they were trying to stop any of eight people from trying to get away. Honestly it was probably a wild Swanna chase, but just on the off chance that they were actually competent and had the real deal, she took Grummore and chased after one nearby to a window while sending Pelleas, Lucan and Palomides to chase after the one closet to him in order to be close enough to follow orders. This proved slightly problematic when the Zephyr agent turned down a hall away from Pelleas, but the time spent chasing afforded a slight chance for them to talk.

 

Don't be down my lady, a still slightly giggling Tristan began, upon noticing his lady slump slightly, Those two couldn't tell a good joke if it bit them on the moustache, especially Ethan, in fact, shall I beat them all, save Lucia into the ground for you? Especially Ethan, he always rubs me the wrong way.

 

She chuckled slightly wondering if Tristan really hated puns that much "Nah he's just doing his best to "respect your enemies" and have "a degree of professionalism"" she remarked remembering slightly once her original's lecture on the subject, "Juuust make sure to beat our enemies doubly hard, that'd make me feel better... Lucia is really rubbing off on me the wrong way isn't she?"

 

I don't think so madam, you're just actually doing things and actually having fun, things you actually want to do. I'll... admit perhaps a bad place to start while on the job, right before their entire force, foolish they may be, and I was blocking your view but that Air Slash was actually very strong. 

 

Jamie bowed her head slightly, now wondering if Gavin or Tristan were actually hurt.

 

However you know I'll support you, and you know how tough I am, and if that means taking a hit so you can deliver a punch line, so be it. And don't worry about Sir Gavin either, he seemed fine.

 

There was a hidden "maybe, possibly," and a slight "who cares" there, but he didn't transmit that.

 

Jamie would have been touched enough by that...if she hadn't had to focus on the Zephyr agent jumping out of the window like he intended.

 

"Ha I'M FREE! What a second...AHHHH!!" he yelled before plummeting to his death...if not for the arm of Tristan catching him just in time.

 

This, while genuinely confusing her, didn't surprise her. "Why didn't you just send out your Flying type to catch you?"

 

"Umm..." the Zephyr agent began looking around really shiftily,  "actually, the thing is... I'm an all ground type trainer. So nothing I would have thrown out could have saved me."

 

"...And you still jumped out anyway."

 

"Yes."

 

"..."

 

"...There are no words..."

 

"...Yeah well um could you...... wait a sec... darn it! I remember what I was gonna do, can you drop me?"

 

You want me to drop you?

 

"Yes."

 

Are you sure?

 

"YES!"

 

You don't want me to pull you up or let you star-

 

"WILL YOU DROP ME ALREADDDYY!" he said as Tristan obliged. The Zephyr quickly as he could opened a Pokeball revealing a Steelix which bit into the side of the building and stopped his fall...and possibly broke one of his leg bones, but better than the rest of his skeleton had he fallen all the way.

 

"...the pain..."

 

"..."

 

"..."

Why did stuff happen?

OOC: Now isn't that the question of the day :P

IC: Ryan
Ryan nodded at Sonja, then frowned at Ray. "Still, sending out all of your Pokémon was a bit overkill, don't you think?" He sighed. Ever since that little episode on Four Island, he had started to feel like a third wheel. "Then again," he shrugged, "I can't say I blame you, given everything that's happened today." On the surface, Ryan was merely referring to everything that had happened in Opelucid, specifically the fact that three Ancient Darkrai were still present. But a knowing look indicated that the Liberty trainer hadn't quite forgotten that awkward moment on Four Island.

IC: Ellen
Straining for breath, Ellen kicked furiously against the Frillish's hold. The jellyfish's grip seemed to loosen and Ellen wasted no time swimming for the surface.

Hold on, Ellen, I've got you! Duo cried. Using Telekinesis, the Duosion lifted Ellen out of the water and set her in the grassy field. This proved no safer than the water, as the Litwick wasted no time sending another fireball right over her head.

It was an all-out brawl. During the battle against the Ancient Darkrai, Ellen had for the most part kept her focus on her battle against Seven. But here, she didn't know where to look. Everywhere she turned, a different fight was taking place. Terry had managed to land a Fire Fang on the Phantump, but was now being doused by an Aqua Jet from one of the Frillish. Maturin had moved to help the Herdier by aiming his Seed Bombs at the Frillish, but was only able to land a few hits before being warded off by the Litwick's Flame Burst. Everything was happening too fast. Chrono had used the Phantump's distraction to land a heavy blow on the Ghost-Type. Artemis continued to engage the Banette, using her special defense boosts from Calm Mind to absorb hits meant for the other Pokémon. Duo was doing his best to keep the other Frillish away from the island. It looked like her Pokémon were fighting well enough on their own, but Ellen knew that it was her responsibility as a trainer to take command of the battle. The problem was, she didn't even know where to begin.

Ellen was pulled out of her thoughts by another yank from the Misdreavus. "Would you stop that?!" Ellen cried, swiping at the Misdreavus with her bare hands, which simply phased through the giggling Ghost-Type.

Seeing Ellen's plight, Artemis back-flipped away from the Banette and ran over to her trainer. She gave Ellen a knowing look, then pointed at each of the Pokémon battling in turn. With her calm mind, Ellen was sure that Artemis had seen something. The Mienshao pointed out how one of the Frillish was chasing Duo in circles with Water Guns, all while laughing hysterically. The Phantump had retreated into its stump, hiding amongst several other stumps. Chrono was swiping at stumps left and right looking for the real Phantump when the Banette leapt out of the shadows and startled the Purrloin. The Phantump pulled a similar move on Maturin, while every move Terry tried to make was hindered by a Water Gun from the other Frillish.

"It's like they're toying with us," Ellen said, confused. "They aren't battling seriously. Ow!" She whirled around again as the Misdreavus pulled on her hair for the umpteenth time. Beside her, the Litwick sent a flame burst toward Artemis. The Mienshao hardly flinched as the attack sailed just over her head. "Wait a second..." Ellen murmured, her eyes wide with realization. "It's almost like they're pulling pranks on us."

Artemis nodded with a smile.

"Well, they say you should fight fire with fire," Ellen said thoughtfully. "And as it happens, we have a prankster of our own."
