Missingno. Master

Somewhat begrudingly, Chromium uses her magic paint powers to extend a few vines, lashing them out in the direction of the mysterious shadow. Though not visible, the vines still snag the shady character, and with a tug, it and the ball are brought into the light. You are met with a rather bewildered looking Pokémon who flinches in the comparably bright glow of Cotton's moves. The Pokémon is pink and vaugely star shaped. She appears rather uncomfortable, struggling against her bonds, and unfortunately not too calmed by Tinnitus's rhythmic pulsing.

"Please, please don't hurt me!" she begs, cowering and shaking a little in the grasp of the vines, "Take the ball if you want, just let me go! It's not even mine to begin with! I just found it on the ground near the cave and thought it looked nice and shiny!"

The Clefairy seemed sincere, both in her fear and her insistence of her innocence. Perhaps this was all a big misunderstanding? After all, it didn't seem like the Mime Jr. had had anything stolen from him - he simply lost the ball. But, on the other hand, Pokémon wandering around in caves were awful mysterious... and the ball would have had to get past the giant Darmatian roadblock somehow... And she did seem to be struggling quite a bit - but it's hard to tell if she's struggling out of fear of being hurt or of being found out... You have no reason not to trust the Clefairy, but it does seem somewhat convenient... What will you do?

♨ Bubbling Beach ♨


As Pouli approaches the Wimpod, it begins to cower even more, scooting back into its horde even further.

"I-I-ok-k-kay! Okay!" it blurts out, stuttering in terror, "I'll take you to him! I'll even show you the way!"

The bug skitters in front of the group, looking nervous the entire time. He slowly approaches the tight, narrow passage made by the walls of the two bubbling pools of hot water. For a split second, you notice a glint - hard to tell if it was in his eye or the shine of his Metal Claw, but either way in barely any time at all, the Pokémon slashes at the side of one of the pools. A cascade of rocks tumble to the ground, piling up between the springs and blocking the exit. Water begins to trickle from the side of the spring and flow over the pile of rocks, which slowly begins to pool around your feet.

"That horrid coward!" the Pansear shouts in rage, before yelping at the sight of the slowly rising water level.

Though the water is not presenting an immediate danger, it might not be the best idea to stick around long to see how high it gets. And what's more, the thief has betrayed you once again and broken his promise. The rocks blocking your path aren't terribly big, but the water running over them is fairly hot. And once you manage to get out, you'll still have to figure out how to find the Wimpod... How will you get out of this situation?
