Missingo. Master- After examining the shard, you realise there wasn't much more you could learn from it at this point in time. Despite the prospect of more broken fragments up ahead, you decide to remain barefoot, why exactly is a mystery to everyone.....

George scouts ahead, occasionally flicking a shard out of your path, rescuing your bare feet from a nasty laceration. The sound only intensifies as you get closer, no wonder all of those Pokemon were so eager to get out. Eventually the tunnel opens up into a large cavern. Andromeda's light is no longer needed as the cavern appears to be illuminated. Looking up to the ceiling you notice a number of holes have been punched through the mountainside and into the cavern. George points out another interesting discovery, the cavern floor is covered in the shards similar to those that were found in the tunnel. You get the feeling that something is approaching as the sound seems to be closing in. A rainbow streaks through the cavern towards you, causing you to flinch out of sheer surprise. George and Andromeda are likewise stunned as the rainbow quickly surrounds the three of you. Trapped in a multicoloured cyclone, your Pokemon are unsure of what to do. Where these Pokemon? Did they mean you any harm or where they just curious? Either way they had you surrounded and they also seemed to be the source of the annoying noise, their swift movements creating the high pitched whistle that has driven the Pokemon from their home.




Biggggg5- Unsure of whether the Pansage are thieves or workers, you settle your Grubbin, much to her displeasure. The best course of action was to wait and watch, if the Pansage were workers then maybe their boss or owner was nearby. It isn't long before every last Occa berry is plucked from the tree, but before the Grass typed simians can head off, a Herdier bursts onto the scene, barking rapidly in an attempt to intimidate the monkeys. Following the Herdier closely is a young man, likely in his late teens. Sporting a plaid shirt, a pair of denim jeans and some well worn boots, he was clearly one of the workers.

"You thieving monkeys!" The boy shouts at the top of his lungs, "get them Lady, we can't let them steal anymore of these berries!"

The Herdier lets out a roaring bark, causing almost half of the Pansages to drop their loot and run. Around seven remain, having enough guts to stand their ground against the normal type. Tex is about ready to burst, the Grubbin looks eager to get in on the action. The Herdier was outnumbered and the boy would likely appreciate and reward your assistance. As the situation unfolds, you notice something rustling in the now barren berry tree. A bunch larger Pokemon jumps down from the tree now and quickly issues orders to its troops. The sight of the Simisage seems to cause the boy to hesitate. While he was comfortable with his chances of scaring off the Pansage, he likely isn't equipped to handle a battle with the evolved Simisage.



Myahoo- Informed that you would require a Pokemon with Waterfall to reach the next level, you produce two Pokeballs. With one you release a Pokemon into the water, a Finneon by the name of Stream. With the other Pokeball you recall Wildfire, the Cyndaquil likely wouldn't enjoy what was going to happen next. Marina stares at you sceptically and with good reason.

"Ummm so that's your Pokemon that knows Waterfall?", the trial captain can barely control herself, but eventually swallows her laughter in an attempt to avoid being rude. "I'm sure he will get the job done, I'm just hoping you don't mind getting soaked in the process....." Marina mounts her Gyarados once more, leaving you to jump into the water with Stream. You wrap your hands around his small body, doing your best not to obstruct his fins. Marina takes the lead and you lay out flat to let Stream pull you along. The ride starts off pretty pleasant as you travel across the still water, but as you approach the rapids you begin to realise why Marina was concerned.

You watch as Marina's Gyarados effortlessly travels up the rapids, barely changing pace. Stream on the other hand is having a really hard time, even as he kicks into a Waterfall to try and propel himself forward. It feel like you're moving a metre a minute and you're not even at the waterfall yet! Stream eventually reaches the waterfall's base, where Marina waits patiently.

"You go first, I'll do my best to catch you if you fall but I can't make any promises." Stream seems determined but he has already used so much energy, was the little Finneon still capable of getting you to the top?

Did they mean you any harm or where they just curious? Either way they had you surrounded and they also seemed to be the source of the annoying noise, their swift movements creating the high pitched whistle that has driven the Pokemon from their home.
The group continued onwards. George kept an eye out for anything in the path that might prove harmful to his Trainer's feet. The Inkay didn't understand why Terri didn't just put on her sandals, but this wasn't the first time she'd shown reluctance to don any sort of footwear. Even if she never explained exactly why, George was inclined to respect this about her, and so he would flick any other shards he found out of Terri's way.

As they progressed, the sound grew worse. George and Andromeda were in agreement- were they wild Pokémon and this noise was happening in their own natural habitats, they'd have hauled ass by this point as well. It was so annoying! Terri heard the noise as well, obviously, and whether it was annoying to her was not obvious. One would think it annoyed her, and maybe it did, but one wouldn't be able to tell by looking at her face. The young Trainer was simply looking ahead, head tilted, only discernible expression on her face that of curiosity. Not that this was anything unusual for Terri, of course- she was hard to read in general.

And then, the tunnel opened up into a large cavern. "I believe my illumination is no longer necessary," Andromeda stated, the Starmie letting the Flash go out. Terri nodded in agreement- there were a number of holes punched into the cavern letting in natural light from the outside. The question Terri had was, was this normal for this cavern, or did whatever was making this noise do this?

"Look at the floor," George piped up. Terri did just that, and saw what her Inkay was talking about. Shards. Just like the ones they found in the tunnel, except the cavern's floor was covered in them.

"Wow..." murmured Terri, taking another look at the shard in her hand. "What were these?"

Before Terri could get any sort of answer, she and her Starmie and Inkay flinched involuntarily as they found themselves being rushed by... a rainbow? The rainbow started to spin all around them, trapping them in the strangest cyclone any of them had ever been trapped in. George and Andromeda were at a loss here. They didn't even know if these were Pokémon, much less their intentions. All they could tell was that whatever was responsible for trapping them in this rainbow, they were the source of the high-pitched noise.

Terri said nothing at first, seeming at first to admire the multicolored cyclone she was trapped in. But she too was curious. The high-pitched whistling, this was clearly the source, and whether said whistling was due to hostility or distress, or even some sort of misguided attempt at friendly communication, she wanted to get to the bottom of the matter and find out what was going on here. "Excuse me," she called to the rainbow cyclone, or at least whatever was causing it. "Hello. My name is Terri. This is George, and this is Andromeda," she added, introducing her Pokémon. Andromeda uncertainly flickered her gem in greeting, while George slowly waved, unsure who or what exactly he was waving at. "The thing is," said Terri, "whatever you're trying to say with this sound you're making, all it's doing is driving away the Pokémon who live in here. Whatever it is you want to say, could you please find a different way to say it? Because if you're trying to say you need help or something, then I'd like to try and help, but first I need to find out why you're doing this."

Missingno. Master- Surrounded by a multicoloured cyclone, you do your best to reason with the strange Pokemon. You attempt to communicate with them, however there seems to be no initial change in their behaviour. George is beginning to look frustrated and is about to lash out, but then the cyclone begins to slow. The volume of the sound decreases as the Pokemon come to a stop, giving you your first clear look at the strange invaders. There must be at least fifty of them, in a multitude of neon colours. They are a bit smaller than a basketball, their large eyes seemed to stare straight through your soul. There was no anger in their expressions, they simply appeared playful and curious, as if they possessed too much energy. A few of them begin to float in closer, inspecting yourself and your Pokemon. Andromeda remains relaxed, however George seems a little unsure of the curious Pokemon.

You had found the source of the noise, but how were you going to clear out so many foreign Pokemon? Sure they were calmer now, but you sensed that it wouldn't be long before they would start zipping around again. What these Pokemon were was also still a mystery, perhaps your Pokedex contained some information that would be valuable to your mission, it was meant to contain information on every recorded Pokemon after all.

Something begins to roll slowly towards you. The strange object was about the same size and shape as the Pokemon surrounding you but it seemed to be encased in the strange ceramic you found in the tunnel. There were small cracks in the clay and the object was rocking back and forth like whatever was inside wanted to break free, similar to an egg.

At first, Terri's words seemed to fall on deaf ears, as the swirling cyclone of color didn't seem to change its behavior at all. And then, however, they started to slow. Yes, they- the cyclone was made up of numerous colorful creatures, spherical in stature, with large eyes that stared at Terri just as curiously as she looked back at them. No anger, no hostility, just curiosity.

"...What are they?" George asked, the Inkay sounding rather wary of these newcomers.

"I've heard of these," murmured Terri, producing her Pokédex. "They're Minior!"

"Minior- Core Form- the Meteor Pokémon. A Rock and Flying-type," droned the device. "Minior lives in the atmosphere, eating dust and other particles. The composition of what it eats in the atmosphere determines the color of its core."

In stark contrast to George's unease, Terri smiled in a friendly way as some of the Minior drew closer to inspect her and her Pokémon. And then, Terri saw something rolling her way. In terms of size and shape, it looked like the other Minior, except it seemed to be encased in a shell- a shell made of the same sort of ceramic they found back in the tunnel, Terri realized. Her Pokédex spoke up once more, providing an answer to her unspoken question;

"Minior- Meteor Form- the Meteor Pokémon. A Rock and Flying-type. The outer shell of Minior is uncommonly durable, but the shock of hitting the ground will shatter the shell."

Terri looked around again, seeing the multiple holes punched in the cavern, and starting to piece everything together. The noises that woke her up last night- that was the Minior falling to the ground, falling right through the cave, punching big holes as they went. And with all this excess, pent-up energy, they were making all that high-pitched whistling, which is what drove off all the local wild Pokémon. And that wasn't their intention at all- they were merely curious. Curious about the world on which they landed. And very likely, they wanted to see the world beyond here, Terri realized. Something that she, of all people, could understand. Moreover, it was imperative that something be done fast, lest the speeding up and whistling resumed, and Terri felt like that wasn't too far off from happening.

"Andromeda," she said to the Starmie. "Use Spotlight and lead the way back out. Alright," she added, now addressing the Minior. "I'm guessing you all want to know more about this world, right? Well, there's much more to it than just this one cave," smiled Terri. "Follow us, we'll lead the way outside." Before she would accompany Andromeda, however, Terri intended to see what she could do for the Meteor Form Minior that was rolling her way. It seemed to want out of its shell, and if Terri could help with that, she certainly intended to. She produced a Luxury Ball, enlarged it, and tossed it up. "Observe, engage!" she stated as the Medicham appeared in a flash of light. He glanced around at the multitude of Minior, but said nothing. As long as they weren't gonna fight him, he had no intention of starting anything with them.

And then, Observe... well, observed the Meteor Form Minior. "You seek my help with this one?" he asked Terri.

Terri nodded. "We'll be leaving the cave so as to lead these Minior out," said Terri. "I'd like you to help me carry this one, and if possible, help it break free from its shell without harming it."

"Indeed," nodded the Medicham, eyeing the shell-clad Minior curiously. Carrying it wouldn't be a problem, he imagined, whether physically or psychically, and the idea of breaking open its shell without doing the occupant harm... it intrigued him. And so they would make ready to leave, with Andromeda leading the way, and hopefully her Spotlight attack would clue in the Minior that following her was the way to go. Once outside, Terri reasoned, the Minior could have all the wide open space they desired to release their pent-up energy without worrying about driving wild Pokémon out of caves. And if any of them simply wanted to return to space, then leading them outside would be the ideal solution as well.
