It's a tense wait but a couple of hours pass before the sun goes down, it was time to get moving. You set the plank across to the neighbouring building, Chad crosses first, cradling his wounded arm. You cross after him, pulling the plank back you notice a large crack was beginning to form down the center of it, luckily you weren't in need of it anymore. You both make your way down the fire escape and a quick look at the map puts you in the right direction, it was going to take some time to get to the arcade.

Darkness covered your movement quite well, aided by the fact that most of the street lights in this district were either blown or close to it. Most of the time you try to use the alley ways but sometimes you have no other option than to use the streets, traveling quickly when you have to in hopes of avoiding any patrolling gang members. It seemed there were less Ribs on the streets at night, you occasionally have to take cover as hear voices in the distance but thankfully you seem to be avoiding any direct contact. Unfortunately it seems that your luck has run out, Chad and yourself a forced to take cover behind a pile of pallets when you hear two voices closing in.

"Did you hear they pulled Herman out of a dumpster earlier?" One of the Ribs talks to the other, were they talking about the grunt you had interrogated earlier? "Yeah man I heard about that, although he wouldn't tell us how it happened aye, seems a bit strange to me." You poke your head out just enough to get a look at the pair. They were both fairly tall and well built, thankfully they didn't appear to be armed. Sitting on the shoulder of one was a Murkrow, it moved its head around constantly, apparently rather observant. A Scraggy walks alongside the other, kicking a tin can along the ground. The pair and their Pokemon were heading straight towards you, there was no easy escape route and the chances of them spotting you are fairly high.
Deciding to wait until the cover of night, Gary and Chad made their way down from the rooves of the warehouse and the adjacent building. Once back on ground level, they began to traverse the alleys and back streets of the district in order to head in the direction of the old arcade. Most of the area had been run down and unattended, so it wasn’t hard to find adequate hiding places as they got closer and closer.

Every now and then the two detected the presence of various Ribs’ grunts who were out on patrol or whatnot, but were fortunate enough to slip past them undetected. Unfortunately for them, Gary and Chad had found some approaching grunts who were on trajectory to come directly across their hiding place, and there wouldn’t be enough time to relocate. As Gary listened in on the two grunts’ conversation, they recalled a comrade who had been removed from a dumpster. It was most definitely the one he had interrogated earlier, and Gary cursed under his breath that the man had been discovered quicker than he intended. Luckily for him however, from the sound of the conversation, it didn’t seem like Gary’s identity had been revealed.

Getting a quick peek at the approaching grunts, Gary noticed a Murkrow perched on one’s shoulder while a Scraggy walked beside the other. Four enemies… that would be too many to ambush at once, so surprise tactics were out of the equation here, Gary thought to himself. “Unless…” he continued out loud in a hushed mumble, “Chad, watch my back if things go south,” he pleaded, referring to Chad’s gun.

Gary pulled out a Pokeball and brought it close to his lips. “Buru, I’m going to need your help on this one. There’s four targets, but I think you can handle it. Hit them with your Dark Void and then trap them in their slumber with a Nightmare. If it doesn’t work, use Teleport to get out of there!” Gary clutched his Smeargle’s Pokeball tightly as he prepared to throw it. He didn’t have much of a backup plan that wouldn’t involve a large-scale Pokemon battle, which would surely garner a lot of attention. He tossed Buru’s Pokeball out from behind their hiding spot like a grenade, praying for the best.
