Kiku was never one for thinking, usually just one for action --- and today was certainly no different. Kiku had rushed into that foreboding darkness in that mystery doorway ahead of you, caution to the wind as he sprinted into the dark. You knew there was no possible way he could see in there, but you also had to wonder how he was able to simply wander in so blissfully with that disgusting smell hanging in the air above all of you. You glanced at Mio, the Pikachu was staring up the ladder that they had used to get into the depths. It was fairly obvious that her intention was to get back up to where they had come from, and maybe you should've listened to her... but it was too late now. Mio lets out a sigh at Kiku's adventurous nature, running towards her trainer and using a blinding flash to illuminate the cave ahead of them. The two then wandered into the cave, the light from Mio's cheeks their only way of seeing.

The caves seemed oddly expansive for just being a mere hallway, it actually seemed like it could continue forever. The walls were drab and made of dirt and mud that had long since solidified into a solid wall, so that these tunnels would not collapse on anyone that decided to venture within. As you rounded a corner, you were greeted by something that you didn't exactly expect to see --- a human skeleton pinned to one of the walls. Almost as though it had been purposely placed there for someone to find. Mio gave a loud cry, running back the direction you came. Without your light, you realised it was probably best to follow. As you ran after her quickly, you noticed she came to a halt at a wall. She faced you, her eyes swelling up in a mix of panic and fear. It seems the door you came through has been sealed back up, leaving you in this messy maze of bones. You glanced around, although it was a little scary being trapped in here, it was fascinating. A brand new area to explore, filled to the brim with all sorts of bones. Maybe you could find some other interesting souvenirs down here too! The thought filled you with hope... however, your first priority should really be finding Kiku.

You and Mio slowly backtrack towards the skeleton you had found, noticing that from the skeleton there seemed to be two distinct paths. One to it's right, and the other to it's left. You had to wonder which way your precious Eevee had gone, and you decided that it might be best to think a bit before deciding where to go. You glanced towards the floor, hoping to see pawprints in the dirt. Unfortunately, you see nothing that would give you the slightest inkling as to where Kiku was. You sigh, listening intently for some sort of sound. From the right, you hear what sounds like chains rattling... and from the left you hear what sounds like drab moans and crying.

Kiku has to be down one of these paths... the question is which. What do you do?

[Upon your request, your adventure has shifted into the catacombs. From this point forward, please reply in darkmagenta.]


A castle to the North. It had certainly peaked your interest, a curious land formation that lay ahead. You had to wonder if anyone still resided in it, perhaps some knights that you could spar with... or maybe even a king that could officially declare you as some sort of royal knight. You were sure it was abandoned, and had been that way for quite some time. However, a little hope in the unknown really never hurt anyone. Atop your powerful steed, you felt like a true knight --- You were sure you'd make a good knight, so long as you were given the opportunity. Although the lore of the castle fascinated you, the prospect of getting some kind of new Pokemon was even more exciting. It was possible that you could even encounter an elusive dragon type, you had heard they were rare... but you weren't exactly sure how rare.

As your steed thundered along the path, which was particular faded from being forgotten for so many years. Your Dartrix poked her head up, realising that you had arrived at some sort of new destination. You yourself felt... odd. There was something about this place you couldn't place, some sort of dark aura that permeated your entire being. Something terrible had happened here... you had heard about the calamity, but the details were forgotten over time. You grasped the sword the clung to your hip, the bad vibes that the castle in the distance was giving you were getting worse. You felt like something bad was about to happen, and you had to make sure that you kept everyone safe. As Boudicca continued down the path, you noticed someone resting on the road ahead. It was an odd character, sitting on the side of a ride that had long sine been abandoned. You began to ease Boudicca to slow down, wanting to get a better look at the character. It was a young woman, a small harp resting upon her lap. A tilted hat with many feathers resting in it's side was resting atop her head, flattening some of the puffy curls of gold that were atop her head. Upon hearing you approach, she sat up signalling for you to come closer. You pulled Boudicca to a halt, jumping from her backside and walking towards the woman.

"Oi. Haven't seen your face 'round here before." She smiled, tipping her hat upwards. Allowing you to get a better look at her big, beautiful golden eyes. "Are you heading to the castle? Haven't you heard the rumours?" Her face shifts to one of concern. "It will drive you mad... like it did the king." She grips her harp in fear, before shaking her head and sticking out her hand. "I'm sorry, I get ahead of myself sometimes. I'm Sylvi." She smiles, glancing at Boudicca. "Beautiful horse you got there... mine's over yonder." She points towards a valley behind her, where a proud looking Rapidash stands, staring towards the castle. She glances back at you, eyeing you intently. "If you really want tew' go to the castle, I can take you there... don't expect me to stay there long with you though!"

She seems friendly enough, although a little curious. However, she is offering to keep you company. What do you do?


Your Mawile looks particularly frustrated upon seeing the Litwick harm you, you're sure it wasn't exactly on purpose... what sort of Pokemon would actively attempt to hurt a human? Eclair cringed slightly, feeling the effects of her burn beginning to weigh her down. The Litwick let out a pitiful little sob, wiping it's tears away with two makeshift hands made of wax. It glanced towards Eclair, watching as it's flames enveloped the Mawile. It's eyes stayed on the pillars of fire, almost as though it was enchanted by it's own attack. You had to wonder if the creature had ever actually had a Pokemon battle before, as it seemed to be particularly young and naive in that aspect --- it hadn't even known that the Smog attack wasn't going to work on Eclair. It shook itself, freeing itself from it's momentary awe only to see Eclair charging at it with a full bodied Iron Head. The Litwick let out a pitiful scream, being thrown across the battlefield.

The Litwick stood itself back up, looking a little wobbly on it's feet. The creature's eyes were filled with tears, it looked as though it was ready to simply give up and quit while it was ahead. The flame on it's head even looked as though it was getting weaker and gradually depleting the longer it fought against the Mawile. It let out a wail, letting loose a small stream of embers from it's mouth. Striking Eclair directly, causing her to shield her face. The flames that still surrounded her licked at her, causing her to sustain some damage. The Litwick looked proud of itself, glancing back towards you. Noticing the food source it was praying on coming back to life slowly in your arms, it let out an angered cry. Turning around and charging at Eclair in an astonishing display. Eclair was caught off guard, sustaining a small amount of damage from the attack. She fought off the urge to flinch, waiting for her trainer to give her the next set of instructions.

At this point, the battle could swing either way... but it's looking as though the Litwick is getting very worn out --- causing it to be weaker. This could be your opening, what do you do?
