This new group felt a breath of fresh air to finally be able to wander freely, especially the gigantic serpent who was currently slithering gracefully across the calm waves. His two companions sat in his gaping maw, prepared for anything that would come at them from this peaceful looking beach island. As they reached it, the duo disembarked from their "ship" and stood upon the beach --- allowing their somewhat large friend to pull himself onto the beach.

The youngest of the trio, Trieu, was excitable. She was young, full of energy and far too enthusiastic in the large serpent's eyes. However, maybe the energy would be a welcome addition to this team. As the more elder Pokemon followed their young companion, they glanced to their sides, observing the beach in full. The young Skorupi scuttled quickly forward, not bothering to glance anywhere except ahead of her. As they kept moving, they came across what appeared to be a small sinkhole in the sand. It was probably caused by one of the hot springs drying up, leaving a gaping hole in the landscape. Trieu almost fell in, but managed to stop just before she would've done so.

As the trio peered down into the hole, they saw something that shocked them. Although their initial deduction was probably correct, they certainly did not expect to see such vasts networks of tunnels --- probably home to all sorts of creatures. Trieu let her eyes light up, before jumping into the pit, curious of what lay within the maze of tunnels. Unfortunately, it appeared as though the large serpent wouldn't be able to enter without destroying some of the homes of these Pokemon. However, he noticed a sparkle in the distance --- perhaps he should investigate that while his teammates explored their own chasm?

What do you do?
Trieu skidded to a halt, just in time to stop her from plummeting down a massive hole in the sand. Odysseus quickly caught up with Jormungand trailing behind. The Magnemite immediately inspected the hole, it seemed there was a network of tunnels running below, a truly fascinating find. On inspection it was clear Jormungand wasn't going to be getting down there, how Odysseus and Trieu could check it out by themselves."I believe this warrants further investigation Jormungand", Odysseus explains the situation to the Gyarados, hoping he will understand."We could find something valuable down there, I am more than capable of keeping an eye on Trieu."

Something glimmered in the distance, catching the eye of the mighty Gyarados while Odysseus was talking to him."You two go ahead, I think I see something up ahead that I want to check out anyways. Good find little one, but be more careful and behave for Odysseus."Jormungand slivered off down the beach, heading towards the sparkle that he saw in the distance.

"Have fun Jormy!" Trieu shouted out to the Gyarados as he made his way down the beach, the Water type visibly cringed upon hearing the Skorupi call him by that pet name."So Ody, are we going down there now? I want to play down there!" The Skorupi was excited, however at this point she was potentially a danger to herself.

Odysseus knew this, if she ran off in the tunnels she could get lost or hurt, she needed a talking to."Trieu you need to learn there are times to have fun and times to be serious. We are going into an unknown area, it is best that we be serious until we know what we are dealing with. Do you understand?" The Magnemite floated down to the Skorupi's eye level, "Grab me and I will Teleport us down there, remember, no running off."

Upon hearing the short lecture from Odysseus, Trieu immediately took on a serious mindset."I can be serious Ody, I won't run away."The Skorupi grabbed a hold of one of the Magnemite's magnets with her tail and suddenly the two were warped down to the bottom of the hole. Looking up, Trieu could still see the sun shining down on them from above, she would behave now, she didn't want to upset Ody.
