Iron Maiden reveals a literally bright side to her, creatively employing a contained Mirror Shot to enhance the effects of Blinky’s natural light, thereby compensating the loss of Sigurd’s Will-o-Wisp embers. You order your team to stand at attention, pre-emptively issuing instructions in case something was lurking in the shadows around the corner. And with that, you decide to muscle onwards toward the light source, if anything to solve the mystery. Hopefully curiosity only kills cats.

You take a turn towards the side tunnel, and an admittedly beautiful violet light bathes you as well as the surrounding area – so much so that visibility here is completely restored even without the need for Blinky and Iron Maiden’s help. You see a large, spacious cave, without a trace of life except for you and your party. However, there is a sleeping bag in miserable state resting on the floor to your right, several small pieces of coal scattered about – no doubt pried off the mine walls – and several old, half-torn pieces of paper all over the sleeping bag. There’s also a small leather pouch resting atop one of the papers, but there seems to be nobody around to claim ownership of it. Could these belong to?...

Blinky suddenly falls over, light-headed and looking very sickly – so much so that it’s as if its very skin is starting to change colour, impossible as though that may be. But your Chinchou isn’t the only one feeling the heightened effects of radiation in this room; you too are starting to feel dizzy, and your stomach feels like it’s about to jump out of your mouth.

Radiation Poisoning Lv 2: You can only order up to two total attacks between all your active Pokémon. The accuracy of your non-Steel-Type Pokémon is reduced by 25%. Your non-Steel and non-Poison-Type Pokémon are now Poisoned. Cannot be cured by items

Honedge seems largely oblivious to the makeshift sleeping quarters you just found, or any of its contents. Its single eye is instead turned to the source of the violet light, coming from the far wall of the cave: a huge pile of rocks rests there, as if part of the cave collapsed, and between the boulders and rubble is a bright object casting the gorgeously-deadly glow.

What will you do?
Things were getting worse but at least they were getting closer to the answers they were after. The radiating object was thankfully providing enough light for them to see inside the small cave. Blinky was really starting to look odd, his blue flesh was starting to change colour, it appeared to be turning orange! That was enough for him to realise the Chinchou was at too great a risk, he had to recall it into its Pokeball. He fumbled at his belt for the Chinchou's ball, but as he held it out to recall the Water type he was overcome by a dizzy spell. Jayson feels the ball fall from his hands but loses sight of it as his vision becomes blurry. He overcomes the symptoms after a few moments but Blinky's Pokeball is nowhere in sight. "Shit", Jayson mumbled, that was all he needed. "Honedge, go retrieve whatever that glowing thing is, you seem pretty invested in it." Blinky go with Iron Maiden and try and find your Pokeball, we need to get you out of the radiation before you get any worse."

While his Pokemon did their best to follow his orders, Jayson turned his attention to the remaining possessions of the man he had 'put to the sword'. He did his best to check the papers for any important information, but in his current state it was getting hard to do anything. He was curious about the pouch as well and tipped the contents out into his hand, what could the man have been hoarding?
