It is decidedly strange to issue commands to someone else’s Pokémon. You can’t help but wonder how you compare to Snivy’s Trainer, the guard-made-hostage, but fortunately the Grass-Type seems to understand your instructions just fine, grinning and nodding in agreement with your plan. Mille, too, seems to easily grasp the situation, and displays no issues with playing second-fiddle to Snivy. Despite she herself being no slouch physically, she understands her role for now is to provide support while Snivy handles the offense.

The duo turns the corner, ready to confront the first foe in the journey to confront the criminal holding the factory’s employees hostage. The Alolan Geodude is quick to spot the incoming foes, who make little effort to stay concealed, instead bent on bringing the fight directly to the Rock-Type. Mille takes the front, growling and Leering ominously at the enemy, striking fear in its heart of stone. So entranced is it by the Stufful’s glare that it fails to react in time once Snivy leaps from behind the bear and forcefully strikes Geodude with two vines, delivering impressive damage and sending the living boulder tumbling and rolling across the floor!

Peeking from around the bend, you see the Geodude in the distance beginning to rise back up, rubbing its rock hands on its body to reduce the pain of the blow. It isn’t until it keeps doing it for longer than you expected that you realize it’s not rubbing the pain away… it’s using Rock Polish! The foe grins, then lunges forward at incredible speed and strikes Mille with its electricity-covered body with a blindingly-fast Spark! This time it’s Mille who is sent flying backwards, and lands only a few feet away from you, writhing in pain on the floor…

Geodude slams its fists together, raring to go with its increased speed, despite the considerable damage it has already taken. Mille is also in bad shape, but Snivy is still perfectly healthy. What will you do next?


You put on the most convincing act you can, going so far as to further injure yourself on Honedge’s blade for added effect. And it seems to do the trick – the living swords holding Dagon and Momon hostage lower their blades slightly, taken aback by your sudden display of utter desperation, and that is precisely the opening your red Duskull was looking for.


The single word, metallic in nature and bone-chilling in tone, causes your heart to skip a beat. Has the Honedge in front of you seen through your plan?! You glance at Dagon and Momon, neither of them reacting to the spoken word - that one was for your ears alone. And yet, the Sword Pokémon does not move, allowing your Duskull to go through with the plan unopposed…

Momon fires an iridescent beam at the Duskull closest to it, finding its mark and immediately sending the sword into a blind swinging frenzy. Meanwhile, the Honedge near Dagon quickly reacts to the charade, attempting to slash away at the elder who leaps backward just in time, the blade only grazing his right shoulder. Immediately afterwards, Honedge is struck by a violent blast of darkness from Momon, but recovers in time to retaliate with an Aerial Ace on the crimson ghost. And quickly, the situation devolved into a chaotic brawl, Momon and the sane Honedge clashing against one another while occasionally having to dodge the confused third element’s wild swings. Meanwhile, the Honedge who drew your blood looks on, impassive.

Your world… is it worth going back to? Worth this silly game of yours?

Again the Honedge speaks only to you, its voice ringing in the back of your head. It sounds distant, as if the all the commotion you just caused could be ended with barely any effort on its part. But at the same time, its apparent interest in your reality seems strong enough that it doesn’t just put an end to this battle on the spot…

You should tread carefully now... What will you do?
