War of the Roses

The sun had begun to set over the Cloud Garden as the sky above the Rose Garden turned a pastel shade of orange. It was a nice complement to all of the pinks, reds, and blues that decorated the flowerbeds across the area. As the contestants finished up their carnival games and collected their tickets, they gathered back in the center where they found the gazebo had been transformed to accommodate a stage. The generators from the Charge-Up Game were ready to go and with a flip of a switch, a myriad of lights shown down from the gazebo’s rafters. While most of the contestants pooled their tickets together and handed them in to their team representatives, there was a growing line for the bathroom which had caused some of the contestants to miss their turn in the final round of games as Elka had yet to come back out.

Once everyone had settled down, the four gardeners took the stage once again, where Persimmon walked back up to the mic. Before he could even begin speaking, volunteers made their way through the crowd to collect any trash or recycling. Persimmon cleared his throat and fumbled through some notes he pulled out of his pocket. Squinting at the crumpled piece of paper, he addressed the audience, “Thank you all for participating in the fun and games portion of our event. Your tickets have been tallied, and now it’s time to announce the winner of the carnival games and to prepare everyone for the final portion of our event. The winner of the carnival games was decided by whoever brought in the most tickets for each team. Now, without further ado, let’s announce the winners! Please step forward as your name is called.”

“In fourth place, representing Team Bellossom, we have Jess and Lilac with 108 points! In third place, we have Alice and Farren for Team Tsareena with 114 points! In second place, we have Rorik and Staryu—” Persimmon was abruptly cut off as Petunia whispered something into his ear, “Excuse me, Rorik and Stahl representing Team Lilligant with 116 points! And last but not least, our winner from Team Roserade is Drew and Rotom, with 118 points! Let’s give our finalists a round of applause!”

As the audience applauded the contestants, the leaderboard was updated to show the standing scores of the event.

For all of their efforts during the Scavenger Hunts and the Carnival Games, the following Pokemon are awarded levels:
6 levels: Lilac the Petilil, Stahl the Starmie
5 levels: Drew’s Rotom, Vine the Snivy, Horologie the Girafarig, Pridwen the Ferroseed
4 levels: Because Farren the Pineco is lv.100, Alice is awarded 4 Rare Candies
3 levels: Aiolia the Litleo
2 levels: Jotaro the Lombre, Berue the Tangrowth
1 level: Jill the Noibat
Here are the current standings of the event:
First Place: Team Lilligant with 7 Team Points and 8 Individual Performance Points
Second Place: Team Roserade with 6 Team Points and 5 Individual Performance Points
Third Place: Team Bellossom with 3 Team Points and 5 Individual Performance Points
Fourth Place: Team Tsareena with 5 Team Points and 2 Individual Performance Points

“Do not fret as there will be another chance to earn your team some big points!” Persimmon called out as volunteer gardeners stepped forward holding duffel bags filled with items. “It’s time for the final round of the event! I will hand the mic over to Peony in a moment to explain the details, and as she goes over them with you, we will be handing out the fruits of your labor during the Scavenger Hunt exercise! The quality of the item depends on whether your riddles took you in the right direction or not. Your items will be shared amongst your teammates, so I wish you the best of luck in the final round!”
