Kawaii scrambled after Ami "come on I didn't say I wouldn't go through." She followed closely behind the other trainer.
Frieghya sent out reassuring waves its alright.
Rumpleteaser nodded "that's me."
Victoria nodded "they will appreciate it ."

A split second after after Kawaii stepped into the silken dome, air pressure suddenly shifted, hard, and sucked her into what felt like a narrow tube. Less than a second later, the force seemed to slow down a little before ejecting her onto solid ground. Ami was, of course, waiting "So, what did ya think?"

Nadie nodded, feeling much more at ease. 'Okay, what does she say?'

'Excellent...' Aside from an odd looking bulbasaur sleeping in a corner, the group didn't encounter anything until the got to the pool, at which point a dewpider burst out from the surface, evidently having just been attacked.

'How many times do I have to tell you, it isn't just your pool!'
he yelled as he stood up, still unaware of the approaching gals.

'I claim whatever I want, and I claim this water!'
an angry-sounding voice countered back. 'An' you'd best keep than in mind before ah blast that head o' yours off!'

Glimmer huffed. 'The fiend's in there, it seems...' She shook her head and shrugged. 'Not that it matters any.' And with that declaration, she pulled out the leaf from her head and stepped forward.

'Oh, dat would be kinda cool to do!'
Butternut agreed. 'But wouldn' dat be problematic fer some o' dem? What if dey were sleepin' when you call?'

'Oh, it would definitely be gruesome!' Elen agreed with an almost malicious chuckle. 'Though I'd have to be a bit careful- cut the wrong area, and they'll bleed out too quickly to make those agonized dying sounds for real long, right?'

'I am?' Bell asked, a little surprised. 'Well, most of the things I've made weren't my idea.' He headbutted the ball, which bounced off hie Bubble and back towards Anion. 'I Can't go taking all the credit!'

Missingno. Master 09-23-2017 09:13 PM

"I-it's happened t-to me before, actually," replied Zygill. "It doesn't d-disturb our sleep o-or wake us up, b-but whatever happens w-when we do this, w-we see as a dream wh-while we're sleeping. A-as long as at least one of us is awake, we all can attack together. I-It's hard to explain," he added almost apologetically.

"Oh, yes," Fatale nodded. "You know, you're all right, Elenchos," she added. "You don't strike me as being quite as sadistic as I can be, but you can still appreciate the gruesome things I so love to talk about. My Severus is quite like that as well," she remarked, her eyes softening ever so slightly at the mention of the Dustox she loved.

"I'll give you that," conceded Anion, backing up a bit, before dashing forward with a mild Quick Attack to send the ball back towards Bell. "But you still made them happen, didn't you? I mean, those cocoon things are just awesome!"

Median Dia 09-26-2017 03:39 PM

'Dat's... weird.' Butternut managed to croak out. 'Can' imagine havin' dat happen to me at all...'

Elen chuckled a little. 'I'm glad you think so! Severus is the lucky guy, I take it?'

'If you put it like that, I guess you're right!' Bell answered. He attempted to hit the ball back at her with a Bubble, but missed the angle slightly and launched it towards Edrick instead. 'Ah, sorry! I didn't mean to-'

The grubbin had already caught the sphere between his pincers and attempted to toss it back towards Anion, but with less-than-stellar results. 'Aww...'

Missingno. Master 09-27-2017 10:56 AM

"Y-yeah... i-it's an ability th-that only we Wishiwashi have, a-as far as I know," said Zygill. "B-But, I'm sure y-you're able to do things I can't imagine, too, right?"

"Indeed," Fatale nodded. "A very good man. Handsome, a skilled battler... I am sure young Artemis inherited much of her skill from her father," she said.

"Dad's awesome," Artemis piped up. "When I evolve again, I'm gonna ask him to teach me to fly!"

Anion was mildly impressed that even with no warning, Edrick was able to catch the ball. Throwing it to Anion, on the other hand, was a whole other swarm of Yanma. "Hey don't feel bad about that," grinned the Minun as she walked over to grab the ball. "You'll get the hang of throwing it. You're already good at catching it. Wanna try again?" she offered, holding up the ball.

kawaiiconcept 09-28-2017 05:14 PM

Kawaii wrinkled her nose "not ideal but it was fun."
Frieghya squinted at the paper and read the message telepathically to her mate.
Victoria smirked and watched her recruit. Rumpleteaser watched, studying the movements of her sister carefully.

Median Dia 09-29-2017 07:10 PM

"Huh, you're the first person to give a remotely negative response!" Ami declared with a laugh. "I totally expect to get one well before now! Anyway..." She turned around and made a wide motion toward the space they had found themselves in. "Welcome to the Pokemon's Loop! It's still a bit empty despite housing two peoples' teams, though."

'W-wait, really?!' Nadie called out in astonishment. 'Sh-she doesn't even let us in there normally, so th-this is quite the honor!' He took a moment to breathe deeply, trying to calm his nerves somewhat. 'You were at the Casino during the raid, so I don't think Ami has anything to hide from us, anyway. Still, this is pretty awesome...'

'Hey, what're ya doin', ya psychotic imp?!' A very angry looking clauncher suddenly burst out of the water, imediately aiming his claw at his assailant. 'I'll make ya regret doin' tha-' His eyes widened as he realized that a barrage of stars was already swarming Swiftly his way, apparently called upon by the Power of Nature itself. 'Gaargh!'

'G-glimmer, you know there's an arena for battling!' Bell exclaimed over the splooshing sound that Kodiac's fall made. 'I know he isn't the nicest, but that was just as uncalled for as his outbursts!'

'...Hardly,' the nuzleaf replied coldly as she began to gather Dark energy. She stood her ground as a burst of Water breached the pool's surface with the force of a small Gun, before releasing her charged power to Torment her prey. 'He's abusing us all, and I'm wiping his scum from the earth!'

~ ~ ~

'Oh, yeah, I sure can!' Butternut declared, quite excitedly. 'I'm really good at growin' pum'kins- an' explosive ones, at that!'

'It sounds like you chose the right guy, then!' the inkay said cheerfully. 'And it seems like you have a lot to look forward to once you evolve, Artemis! Most pokemon don't see quite as many new skills open up to them, you know.'

Edrick thought for moment, trying to find a better way to do this. '...U-um, I think... I have an idea.'

Missingno. Master 09-29-2017 08:49 PM

"E-Explosive pumpkins?" repeated Zygill. "H-How do you do that?"

Fatale nodded. If Beautifly anatomy allowed for it, she would be betraying the smallest of smiles at this moment.

"Oh, yes," replied the Shiny Cascoon. "I can't wait, I'm gonna learn so much, from both Mom and Dad."

"Yeah? What is it?" asked Anion.

Median Dia 09-29-2017 09:14 PM

'Easily! Just sit back an' watch!' The jack-o-lanturn on Butternut's back spat out a seed onto the ground between them, which immediately took root and started to sprout a little. 'It ain't da fastest move in da world, but it's far faster than normal.' He admitted.

'And man, must that be a big help!' Eenchos allowed himself a brief chuckle. 'Of course, this is a certain beauty in figuring things out yourself, but I'm not gonna turn doaw a few pointers either!'

'Y-you two were using attacks, right?' the grubbin asked cautiosly.

'Every once and a while, yes,'
Bell answered, his curiosity clear in his voice. 'What'cha thinkin'?'

Edrick took a deep breath, before looking at Anion with a little more resolve in his eyes. 'C-can you throw it back to me, p-please?'

Missingno. Master 10-01-2017 05:13 PM

Zygill watched the sprout with interest. "Wow," he murmured. "It's still the fastest I've ever seen a plant grow," he replied, looking intrigued as he wondered what would happen next.

"Dad says something like that," replied Artemis. "He says that it's always nice to be able to do something without help, but also that there's no shame in accepting help if it's needed." Fatale said nothing, but nodded her agreement with this advice- she'd had to learn this herself not all that long ago.

"Sure," replied Anion, tossing the ball back to the Grubbin, wondering what he had in mind.

Median Dia 10-11-2017 08:52 PM

(Holy-comoly smokestacks! It's been 10 days and I still haven't replied?! Man, I'm slipping)

'Waaait fer iiit...' Butternut watched intently as a distinct pumpkin started to grow, then mature at a rapid rate. 'An' now!' He plucked the gourd from its vine, waited a split second, and tossed it straight into the air- where it erupted in an orange burst of energy. 'Kaboom~!' Butternut laughed a bit, reveling in the rare use of his kind's signature attack.

'In any case, best of luck on evolving quickly,' Elen answered, a bit awkwardly. 'I don't think I need to say this, but learning does little good if you can't practice it as well...'

'A-ah!' Edrick attempted to smack the ball back with a Mud Slap, but missed the timing and got bonked on the head instead. 'Ow! I messed up...'

'Don't worry about it,' Bell consoled him. 'You just need a little practice, that's all!'

Ed tilted his head. 'Prac... tice...'?

Missingno. Master 10-14-2017 09:43 PM

Zygill's eyes widened with awe as the pumpkin exploded. "Woooow, so cool!" he smiled.

"Thank you," replied Artemis, nodding as best as a Cascoon could be expected to.

"It shouldn't be very long," explained Fatale. "I myself spent less than a week as a Silcoon."

"Yeah, practice," explained Anion. "That's when you keep trying to do something you're not that good at yet. That's how you get better at it."

Median Dia 10-14-2017 10:00 PM

Butternut chuckled in satisfaction. 'An' dat is somethin' only my kin' can do!'

'Less than a week?!' Elen echoed in shock. 'Th-th-that's absurdly fast!'

'Ah, o-okay...' He grabbed the ball and tossed it to Bell, who caught it in mid-air with a String Shot and whirled it to Anion.

'If you want, I can help you with silk skills,' the dewpider suggested. 'The basics should come naturally to you as a fellow Bug Type!'

Missingno. Master 10-16-2017 12:10 AM

"Wow," smiled Zygill. "Um... I'll show you what I was talking about earlier, but... i-is there some water around here?" he asked. "I could do it out of water, but I... I prefer to be swimming in something, given the choice."

"Oh, all cocoon Pokémon have speedy evolutions," piped up Eon. "Severus said he was only a Cascoon for a little while, and Melittin wasn't a Kakuna for very long... Albus is still a Kakuna, though he doesn't plan to evolve into Beedrill... Oh, but it's not just cocoons, either! Norbert said he was only a Fraxure for two seconds!"

"Hey, there's an idea," grinned Anion as she smacked the ball headfirst with a Quick Attack, sending it back to the Grubbin. "Bell knows a lot about working with that stuff, you could learn a lot from him."

Median Dia 10-17-2017 06:24 PM

'Yeah, we gots a pool in dis place,' Butternut answered. 'It ca' be quite da trip dere, do~!'

'Two seconds?!' Elen took a moment to process this new information. 'Guess that's just the kind of thing us two-stagers will never get to experience. Two seconds, though...'

'R-really?' Ed asked, just before Mud Slapping the ball again (with somewhat better results).

Bell moved to catch it and simply tossed it to Anion. 'Well, it looks like I'll be doing a bit of teaching eventually anyways. I gotta start with someone!'

Missingno. Master 10-17-2017 06:58 PM

"O-oh, I see," murmured Zygill. "Um... m-maybe I could get one of my teammates to carry me," he offered.

"I wish I could've seen it for myself- this was before I was even born," smiled the Shiny Eevee. "Norbert was just really ready to evolve, and did all of it all at once."

"Hey, getting better already," Anion grinned, catching the ball, before tossing it back to Bell.

Median Dia 10-19-2017 11:47 AM

'Dat ain' a bad idea,' Butternut admitted. 'Do' I suppose dey won' be as surprised by it as I probably will be...'

the inkay agreed, a tad surprised this the eevee of all people had wanted to see an evolution. 'It sounds like it was a fair bit before my time, as well- not that it means anything, of course!'

'I g-guess I am,' Ed echoed, evidently getting a bit more confident now.

Bell unleashed a small wave of Infesting insects, weak enough to dissipate after bouncing the ball bouncing just before Anion. 'And that's one thing I could use some work on. Then again, that isn't supposed to be a precise move in the first place...'

Missingno. Master 11-08-2017 06:55 PM

OOC: ...How did it take me this long to realize I didn't respond to this like I thought I had? >_<

"Th-that's true," admitted the Wishiwashi. He looked over, spotting the Shiny Eevee. "Um... E-Eon?" he called.

Eon perked up upon hearing one of her teammates. "Oops, gotta go," she said to Elenchos. "Talk to you later!" And she dashed over to the Water-type. "Hiya, Zygill," she smiled. "Who's your friend?" she added, glancing at Butternut. "You kinda look like a Bulbasaur, but I never seen one that looks like you before."

After Eon had run off, Artemis looked over in that direction. "Oh, that's Zygill over there," she said to Elenchos. "One of our newest teammates. Looks pretty weak, until you see what he's really capable of in battle."

Anion had taken a few steps back before charging forward to meet the ball with Quick Attack, sending it Edrick's way. "Oh, what, Infestation?" she said to Bell. "Yeah, some of my teammates know that move. Took them some doing to get the hang of it, too. Me, I want to get going on learning more Electric moves," she remarked, for this took place prior to her learning Thunderbolt.
