The Bastion of Vacuous Dreams (Neutral): The centrepiece of the city located fittingly in the middle, the Bastion of Dreams was the main government building, stretching into the skies, and where the Goldenridge Council met their bloody end. The enormous structure yet stands, but no side dares to contest for the obvious vantage for fear of what lies within. Legends state that the building was constructed above and around a shrine to a creature of unknown origin said to sway the minds of those who happened upon it. As a result, it is largely abandoned, and many of the valuable documents within are up for grabs, though rumours have it that the final survivor of the council resides within, watching the world crumble around her, with an enigmatic force keeping her safe. Even the deities know not what pokemon are brave enough to reside within, but one thing is certain: those who have ventured in...have never emerged again. Reply in Dark Green.
Maria looked up at the Bastion with disdain. Every part of the Bastion, from the stairs up to the entrance to the tower itself, was in shocking disrepair. It may have been a brilliant building at one point, but as it stood right now, a Jenga tower looked better than it.

"This place is an actual dump, Boop. It's like a Hippopotas had explosive diarrhea and Tail Whipped it all over the place. You sure the Trousers would be in a place like this?" Maria says, turning to face her partner. Boop let out what sounded like a small laugh, likely directed at the Hippopotas comment, but Maria wasn't too sure if it was a legitimate laugh or more of a "haha". Even after all her time of living with Mimikyu, it was still kinda hard to figure out exactly how they felt. Unlike people or most other Pokemon, there wasn't really much body language to go off of. This wasn't an issue most of the time, Boop being relatively straightforward with her, but these little differences were sometimes hard to spot. Regardless, it seems the comment went over well, given Boop quickly responds in Poke Speak of her own.

"Funny, but don't let its appearance fool you. The tower reeks of death, and an incredibly powerful energy leaks from it like radiation. Surely even you can feel some of it with your pitiful human senses?"

Now that Boop mentioned it, something indeed felt...off about the Bastion. It was faint, but the feeling was there. Maria nods her head "yes" in response. To this, Boop seems to give an approving nod of its own, and follows up with another sentence.

"Good. Pay less attention to appearance, and feel for that energy next time we pop by a questionable place. As for the Trousers: it's possible, but I think the most likely case is that it's something else. It's still worth checking out though, could give us a good lead. I say we investigate."

After a few more brief words, the two begin to walk the steps up to the Bastion's entrance. To Maria's embarrassment, her small noodle eight year old arms are unable to open the heavy doors unaided. With the help of Boop this time, they slowly push the door open, and shuffle inside.
