Château du Roi Fou - Castle of the Mad King
Legends say that over a thousand years ago, Le Marécage Noir was a very different place - a vibrant land ruled by a gracious King from his extraordinary castle in the valleys to the north of the region. One dark day, the King suddenly became consumed with insatiable greed and gluttony. Ultimately, his envy consumed him, and his self-destruction became the catalyst of a great calamity that changed the course of Fizzby history. Now just a memory of an era long forgotten, the Castle of the Mad King has weathered the tests of time, offering sanctuary to Steel-types and some Dragon-type Pokemon - the latter of which they say are rarer, but are drawn to the Mad King's energy that still lingers to this day... Please reply in SteelBlue.


"So you say your instinct was calling you here?" Kawaii smiled down at her dragon-type. Smaug nodded and scampered forward followed closely behind by his mate, a pachirisu named Kyray-chan. They were both recolored back when the ability to recolor pokemon was free. Beside the trainer was her loyal companion Frieghya and an Aron named Arin with a fedora atop his head. None of these pokemon had the slightest chance of being taken by the energy of greed. Though Kyray was there to keep her mate calm just in case. She was the only one who could calm him down in the case of his hot temper 'boiling over'. Her logic was that having the two types most commonly found there might help solve the mystery of the place. There was something about the scenario that reminded her of a show she was only vaguely familiar with. Game of Thrones was confusing and long and she had only seen a few episodes. The whole 'mad king' legend reminded her of one of her favorite characters. Deneris was a very powerful female character who didn't get a love interest until fairly recently. She was the queen of dragon-types and was very powerful and cool on her own. Her family had a history of rulers who went crazy half way through. Kawaii was so lost in thought that she didn't notice that they had arrived at the castle, well castle ruins. Despite its crumbling outside it had held up over the many years it had clearly been around. With deep breath the pink-haired trainer and her companions entered the ruin.

Gemini Spark- With Ginny still wailing at the top of her lungs, slowly chipping away at the Feraligatr, you urge Henrietta and Nissa to continue their assault. The Froakie blows a rather large bubble towards the recently poisoned gator, however as the resisted attack pops against the Water types leathery hide, it does little to slow him. Nissa gets a better results as glowing tendrils stretch from her fingers, wrapping around the Feraligatr's tail and draining away its health. The Treecko is thankfully to have some of the vitality return to her, somewhat making up for her most recent blow. Somewhat enraged by the Froakie's tricks and traps, the Feraligatr lashes out at the young herp. Slashing claws just manage to scrape Henrietta as she bounces backwards in retreat, a close shave to say the least. Despite the glancing blow, the Feraligatr's strength in unquestionable, the hit still causing a good amount of damage to Henrietta.

As the Feraligatr continues to pursue the Froakie, Nissa uses the power of her surroundings, creating a glistening ball of grass energy, gathered from mother nature herself. She hurls it at the Feraligatr, letting it burst across its back in hopes of turning it away from Henrietta. Although the hit would certainly have hurt, the Feraligatr doesn't stray from its path, continually pursuing Henrietta as she tries to hop away. Concern she is about to find herself in the jaws of the croc, Henrietta fires a pulsating orb of water at the Feraligatr's head.

The orb explodes as water gushes around the Feraligatr's head. Although the attack fails to do much damage, the sudden flush of water seems to have left the larger Pokemon confused! Still fueled by its rage, the Feraligatr lashes out at the amphibian. Jaws crunch into the soft skin of the Ginny, in its confusion the Feraligatr has nabbed the wrong opponent! Nethertheless, its powerful jaws bite down hard, causing Ginny to cry even louder. It shows no sign of letting go, Ginny would need assistance if she was going to survive this encounter.


Biggggg5- Finding yourself ambushed by a trio of bothersome bats, you waste little time bring out your Tynamo to even the odds. Harrison gives you a nod, approving of your choice. Hotstuff happily greets his old friend, it seemed like quite some time had passed since they had seen each other. Geddy didn't waste too much time getting reacquainted with his old friend, instead he let loose a wave of electrical tendrils towards the much larger Golbat. Unfortunately one of the Zubat is quick to defend its leader, swooping in to intercept the attack before it could reach its true destination. The other Zubat is even quicker to put a wrinkle in your plans, letting out a burst of confusing light that leaves the Tynamo struggling with confusion. Hotstuff whips his tail around, slicing the air as he strikes the two Zubat away with an Air Cutter. Harrison's Squirtle adds to the spread, releasing an Icy Wind that leaves both Zubat screeching in pain as they find their movement slowed. Anger, the Golbat replies with an Air Cutter of his own, the spread attack strikes both Hotstuff and the Officer's Squirtle.

Geddy once again attempts to paralyze the Golbat. However you quickly notice that his confusion has affected his aim as he turns to face Harrison's Squirtle. Before you can stop him it is too late, the Squirtle is embraced by the electricity and left paralyzed. Not long after, Geddy finds himself clear of mind once more, a little too late to make up for his mistake. Hotstuff releases a Heat Wave, scorching the trio of bats, however they show no signs of retreat. The Officer's Squirtle attempts to assist, however is unable to fight through his paralysis. All three bats return fire with a volley of Air Cutters, only Geddy takes the attacks well while Hotstuff and the Squirtle are forced to endure the sting blows.

"I thought you said you were a trainer? Surely you can battle better than this!" Officer Harrison was clearly angry with the way the battle was going, surely not helped by Geddy accidentally paralyzing his Pokemon.

Big is confident as the battle kicks off, holding the only type advantage in the battle and assuming he has the superior tactics over these presumedly wild Pokemon. However, his hopes pretty quickly fall as the zubats show more agency than expected by taking the thunder wave for the Golbat. He then cries out as Geddy is then hit by a confuse ray from the other Zubat. As the battle rages Big tries to stop Geddy from using the thunder wave on Harrison's Squirtle but he can't get his voice to cut through the confusion. "A modern day warrior mean, mean stride today's Tom Sawyer mean, mean pride..." Geddy sings in a bit of his confused haze. "Damnit!" Big immediately whips around his backpack and starts digging for his berry pouch. The bats finish off the round with an air cutter from each of them and Big rolls his eyes listening to Harisson's shouts. "I said I was a trainer not League Champion!" He replies as he extracts his Cheri Berry and softball pitches it over to the squirtle. "There, ya happy?" He looks exasperatedly at the officer. "What about you, aren't you supposed to be protecting and serving or something? I'm the one who brought out even numbers." He is emboldened to this rudeness by the heat of the battle. "Anyway i've got an idea, everyone focus the golbat with everything we have. Geddy, start out with charge beam follwed by a thunderbolt. Hotstuff you do a flamethrower and another heat wave," He commands, hoping his theory he formed in observing the last round kept true.

Nethertheless, its powerful jaws bite down hard, causing Ginny to cry even louder. It shows no sign of letting go, Ginny would need assistance if she was going to survive this encounter.
As Ginny's Uproar continued, it was clearly up to the smaller Pokemon to keep their enormous opponent busy so they could wear him down between their attacks as well as the poison ticking away at his health. Henrietta's attempt to slow him down with a barrage of foam did nothing to slow the Feraligatr down even as each Bubble impacted against his skin, but Nissa was quite relieved when her Mega Drain successfully stole from his still bounteous health pool. Even with the Froakie's mostly unsuccessful attack, however, she croaked out of panic as she found herself to be the target of Jesse's ire after her Toxic Spikes trap, and she couldn't run away fast enough before his claws just barely Slashed against her back but still dealing quite a big of damage.

He wasn't done though and continued chasing after Henrietta...and he was gaining on her! Even as Nissa's Energy Ball summoned by the Power of Nature splashed against him for double damage, he still kept after her, his maw threatening to engulf the Froakie. Henrietta had to rely on a last ditch effort and sling a blue Pulse of energy at him; while the Water-type attack dealt reduced damage to the Feraligatr, it did have the desired effect of Confusing him! It came with a cost, however, as rather than descend on Henrietta his jaws Crunched down onto their Palpitoad friend Ginny! "Froakie!!" she cried in agony as her new friend now found herself as the monster's chew toy, she didn't mean for that to happen!

"We have to save Ginny, and fast!" declared Hyrem. "Both of you use Rock Smash to try and make him let go, and if that doesn't work use your combined Strength to try to pry his jaws open!" Nissa and Henrietta looked at each other and nodded before rushing back in, their ally wailing in a further Uproar over the unintended consequences of Henrietta's actions; both of them felt an obligation to save Ginny, but Henrietta had more of a burden, it was up to her to fix it!

Slightly startled by the Decidueye's still aggressive behaviour, you set about a plan to hopefully protect yourselves and free the Decidueye from whatever is causing it to act so strangely. You direct the Riolu to assess the pool of crimson liquid, perhaps the Riolu's natural gifts would help it gain insight. The Riolu nods as it crouches by the pool, it stares deep into the water before slowly laying its paws on the water's surface. Nothing happened for a moment, but then, all of a sudden, the water around the young Fighting types hands begins to shed its blood red colour and return to crystal clear water. Whatever the Riolu was doing, it was working. Unfortunately it was happening at a rather slow rate, it would take time to clear the entire pool.

Upon seeing the Riolu clearing the tainted pool, the Decidueye screeches in its direction and leaps into the air, talons extended. If not for a combined Flamethrower and Dark Pulse from Volg and Zyll, the Riolu would have found itself in the clutches of the darkened archer. Instead the Decidueye is sent crashing into the wall of the tunnel. It seemed the walls of the catacombs restricted a lot of the Decidueye's movement, however it was far from crippled. The owl goes back on the offensive, whipping its wings and sending a forceful Ominous Wind at Volg. The Charmander is battered backwards by the powerful gust, his tail flame flickers for a moment but remains ignited. The Archer quickly follows up by closing in on Zyll, sweeping the blind dragon's legs out from beneath it with a low blow. Zyll clambers back to his feet, although his legs ache from the super effective blow he just took.
He hated to admit it, but even after two decades dedicated entirely to studying the world of Pokemon, some phenomena still eluded Rorik’s explanation. This was one such case – Riolu, despite his small stature and overall lack of strength, had bravely stepped forward to examine the pool and was somehow… purifying it?

Is this a process of transmutation, or one of absorption? And if it’s the latter, is Riolu storing all that crimson substance… inside him? What will it do to him?

His concern for the small creature almost caused Rorik to interrupt the process and retrieve Riolu to his side, but then he remembered all the times his work had been forcibly interrupted by other Heimlans who simply could not grasp the value of what he did. If Riolu thought this was the way to go, he had no right to interfere – as much as it scared him to think of the potential consequences.

The significance of Riolu’s actions was further confirmed when Decidueye, in a blind rage, attempted to stop the purification, lunging at the Aura Pokemon. And if the possessed creature didn’t want it done, then they should absolutely do it!
Fortunately, Zyll and Volg’s timely intervention spared Riolu from a grizzly fate, and clearly both attacks were effective in pushing back the archer. Alas, it seemed there was no avoiding conflict at this point.

I didn’t want to hurt you, I really didn’t. But if that’s what it takes to heal you…

Retaliation was swift and severe, a vile gust of wind sending Volg flying against a wall and a low kick to Zyll’s legs toppling the blind drake. But it would take more than that to defeat his companions – proof being that both were quick to get up and regroup, despite the pain they felt. And while Zyll maintained his usual composure, the Charmander reacted just as Rorik predicted…

“The Baimon…”

Suddenly, Volg’s tail flame erupted, but it was no Blaze. It was the uncontrollable fury ignired by the scent of battle and heightened by the pain – Volg was getting excited, overwhelmed by his fighting instinct. Embers gathered in his mouth, and the Charmander lunged at Decidueye, looking to bury his Fire Fangs into him before the archer, who had closed the distance to kick Zyll, could fly away from range.

There’s no point in giving him instructions at this point. I have to rely on Zyll…

But maybe it wasn’t all bad – if Volg could pin Decidueye in place with his bite, that could provide a valuable opening…

“Zyll! Wait for my signal, and let loose a Flamethrower on my mark!”

He would wait to see if Volg’s Fire Fang connected, and if it did, it would give Zyll the opportunity to strike at point-blank range; the Charmander wouldn’t mind some rogue embers from the blast, he hoped. And even if Volg missed, maybe Zyll could still catch the bird on retreat…

Either way. All that mattered was keeping Decidueye occupied. Rorik didn’t want to injure the bird any more than was strictly necessary; after all, could the archer even be blamed for his violent actions, given his condition?...

Biggggg5- Hoping to make up for Geddy's unfortunate accident, you dig into your bag to retrieve a small red berry. You promptly feed it to the paralyzed Squirtle, who quickly feels his limbs loosen as he is freed from the electric embrace. Officer Harrison gives you a nod as he mumbles something under his breath, although it seems he is at least pleased that you made up for your mistake. You instruct everyone to target the Golbat, having perhaps worked out the bats mindset. Geddy fires a Charge Beam straight for the Golbat, however the unparalyzed Zubat quickly swoops in to intercept. As Geddy glows, having gained a boost to his special attack, Harrison's Squirtle shoots a Water Gun at the Golbat, just as Hotstuff lets loose a flamethrower. The two attacks look certain to hit their mark, but at the last moment, the paralyzed Zubat manages to get itself in the way. The bat screeches, clearly in pain but for now it seems intent on sticking by its master. The Golbat screeches at the top of its lungs, causing all three opposing Pokemon to tremble as their defense is cut in half. The Screech also seems to be a signal to his minions, who quickly descend on Geddy. The bats nearly tear the Tynamo in two as they sink their fangs into his soft flesh, leeching the life from his body and healing their own injuries.

The bats cling to the Tynamo until Geddy lights up with a Thunderbolt, the electricity sends the two flapping backwards in retreat as they lose much of the health they just recovered. Hotstuff releases a Heatwave, which is blocked by the two smaller bats who finds themselves charred and weary. Finally, Harrison's Squirtle releases an Icy Wind, the Super Effective attack is the last the Zubat's block as they crash to the ground, frozen stiff.

"Looks like we just have the big one to deal with now", grumbles the Officer, "lets make this quick shall we?"



Gemini Spark- With Ginny stuck with the Jaws of the Feraligatr, it is up to Nissa and Henrietta to free her before she met her end. The pair of nimble Pokemon close in quickly, leaping and striking with shattering blows. While the strikes would likely shatter boulders, they seem to have little effect on the Feraligatr, who continues to bite down harder on the Palpitoad. Ginny's cries begin to grow softer, her Uproar was coming to an end and she was getting closer to succumbing to the Feraligatr's jaws. The Feraligatr's defense seems to have dropped a little from the pair of Rock Smash's but whether it would be enough to allow the Treecko and Froakie to overpower it was questionable.

Both Pokemon pull with all their strength, trying their best to pry open the gator's mouth. But while it is relatively easy to hold a Feraligatr's mouth closed, it is almost impossible to pry prey from its jaws. Unfortunately, while the pair are busy trying to free Ginny, the Feraligatr's mind clears. Annoyed by the two pesky Pokemon, it reaches up and grabs the two, one in each giant, clawed hand. It takes its frustration out on them, crushing them in its hands as all three Pokemon are now left wailing in pain.

The bikers laugh and slapped their knees, finding the sight amusing as the old Feraligatr torments the trespasser's Pokemon. Emily was on her knees, sobbing into her hands, unsure of what she could do to help. Suddenly, all three Pokemon began to glow, however they were all unsure what exactly was going on.....

Nissa and Henrietta have gained 2 levels



Maskerade- Unsure whether the Riolu was putting itself at risk or not, you let it go about its plan, certain that it was making the right choice. The pool continued to clear, bit by bit. You notice that the aura surrounding the Decidueye's eyes is beginning to fade and flicker at times, perhaps it was indeed tied to the pool? Nethertheless, the archer still seemed intent on putting an end to all of your Pokemon, although it would likely have its hands full with Volg once again being consumed by the Baimon. As his tail flame erupted, he rushed the Decidueye, embers gathering in his maw. Leaping he sunk his fiery fangs into the Decidueye's right arms, causing it to screech in pain as it jumped backwards. Zyll took aim, firing a Flamethrower that struck the slowed Archer in the chest. The Grass type trembles from the blow as it crashes into the water, but it doesn't appear to have done enough to put an end to it.

With a whip of its arm the crazed Decidueye frees itself from Volg's grip, sending the Charmander crashing into the water. In the middle of the pool the water is quite deep, easily above the Charmander's head height. The water sizzles as the Charmander flails and tries to keep its tail above the water, the flame is slowly starting to die down. The Decidueye suddenly disappears, like a phantom in the night however you can still sense its eerie presence. It probably wouldn't be long before it attacked again, but hopefully it would be enough time to rescue Volg before he drowned or his tail flame was extinguished.

Nissa and Henrietta have gained 2 levels
Nissa and Henrietta had to get Ginny out of the Feraligatr's jaws, but their plan to do so was desperate at best. It was pretty cool to see them both working together as they attacked two different spots on the huge reptile's body, but other than a slight drop in his Defense the Rock Smash attacks were barely doing anything. Then, as the Palpitoad's Uproar died down, they could tell she was getting ready to accept her fate and tried putting their own lives at risk, leaping in to try and pry the jaws open with all their Strength, but they simply weren't budging; whether they were worried of slipping into his mouth themselves, or they were simply not strong enough, it didn't matter. By that point, Jesse had shaken off the disorienting confusion and was fed up with his opponents' feeble efforts, grabbing each of them in his claws and began to squeeze the life out of them, the bikers laughing at the scene as they were sure this was the end of the battle. "Nissa!! Henrietta!!" Hyrem cried out as he could only watch. Emily was even worse off, she had already fallen to her knees and was hiding her crying with her hands. "Ugh, he's just too strong for them! And I was hoping this would be the battle where they would..."

As the grip on them tightened, Henrietta seemed to scream from the pain more than Nissa did. "Ack! Je suis désolé, Nissa, I cannot keep going..." she moaned to her Treecko friend.
"No, keep fighting, Hen!" Nissa struggled to say when she felt the claws squeezing and digging into her own body.
"Non..." Henrietta let out a gasp as she was squeezed again. "If I had not made our foe Confused, he would not have attacked my friend by mistake, and we would not be here...and now Ginny is going to be eaten...and then we're next! And it's all my fault!!"
"Nngh, stop thinking like that! We can still win, we just need to...just need to..." Nissa's eyes soon glazed over in a trance before her body started to glow. Henrietta watched this happen and soon fell into her own trance as her own body lit up as well.

Soon, Hyrem watched as all three Pokemon in the Feraligatr's clutches started glowing, and everyone else looked on dumbfounded. Soon their bodies began to undergo changes, most of it related to growing in size, and Hyrem soon figured out what was happening. "Heh, I thought as much," he said, readying his Pokedex for what was to come as soon as the changes were done.

It would be Nissa to complete her evolution first, and she had grown almost a foot and a half in size, her tail having been reduced to two leaves, but also gaining three leaves on each of her arms and one long leaf sticking out of her head. In addition, her body had become sleeker to accommodate her new height, and her snout had developed more prominently. As far as what she was, the Pokedex registered her as this:

Grovyle, the Wood Gecko Pokemon, and the evolved form of Treecko. Its build is well suited for climbing and jumping around the trees in a jungle, and the leaves on its body help it to hide in lush vegetation to avoid detection by predators or prey. Grovyle's superior maneuverability in forests and jungles means that it can chase down anything it considers prey with no chance of them escaping.

As Hyrem looked further, he saw that Nissa learned a new attack upon evolving, one he was excited to have her use in the next few moments, but as he looked up he saw that Henrietta had also finished evolving and had become a taller, more slender amphibian with longer arms and legs, her eyes had moved to the sides of her more developed, darker blue head, and the froth around her neck had developed into a small scarf of sorts. The Pokedex soon lit up again, registering Henrietta's new form:

Frogadier, the Bubble Frog Pokemon, and the evolved form of Froakie. With its body further developed for speed, as well as webbed feet that allow it to climb even smooth surfaces, Frogadier can swiftly climb up skyscrapers with ease. Its accuracy is also pinpoint, throwing small objects at its target from reasonable distances, allowing it to knock flying insects and birds out of the sky before snatching the stunned prey with its long tongue while it is still falling.

"Oh nice," said Hyrem before looking at the other trainer. "Emily, this battle's not over yet, and I think our Pokemon just got the boost they needed to turn this around! Henrietta, use Echoed Voice twice and see how much damage you can do with your second attack! Nissa, time to put your new move to good use; two Fury Cutter attacks ought to do the trick!" As they all waited for Ginny to finish glowing, Hyrem hoped that, between his Pokemon's attacks doing more damage when used multiple times, as well as the poison still working on Jesse's health, they may be able to bring the Feraligatr down soon...and hopefully it would be soon enough!

**********

Level Up! Treecko grew from Lv. 15 to Lv. 17!
New Move! Treecko learned Pursuit!
Evolution!! Treecko evolved into Grovyle!
New Move! Grovyle learned Fury Cutter!

Level Up! Froakie grew from Lv. 15 to Lv. 17!
Evolution!! Froakie evolved into Frogadier!

You go to open the front door, but as you turn the knob it breaks. You try to push the door open but it appears to be sealed shut. Silver smiles slightly, if the door wouldn't open then you couldn't explore inside, excellent! Maybe there was another way inside though, it was certainly worth investigating.

Navigating around the side of the building, you find yourself in the barren gardens that surround the sides and back of the abandoned manor. You notice an old garden shed positioned beneath a large old tree. A large branch had crashed through the top of the shed, likely during a strong storm. The shed still stood but the branch had collapsed part of the roof. Looking in the tree, you spot a rather large nest. You can just make out three black heads, three baby Murkrow rested in the nest, their parents nowhere insight.

Squirt Squirt Squirtle

Silver tugged at your pants as he pointed further down the tree, at a small black and red Pokemon was stealthily making its way up the tree towards the defenseless hatchlings. The cat like Pokemon was closing in fast, it paused as it prepared to pounce on it's unexpecting prey, but then suddenly a pair of cries cut through the eerie silence. Pitch black wings carry the mother Honchkrow as she swoops in to defend her children. Lashing out with her claws she knocks the feline away, causing it to fall from the tree and slam into the ground below. The cat cries out, clearly hurt from the fall. It tries to retreat but appears to be struggling to put weight on its front, right leg. The Honchkrow doesn't seemed satisfied with what it had already achieved and dives into Peck the now helpless feline. The assault is relentless, the Honchkrow seems intent to beat the would be predator within an inch of its life.

Unfortunately the front of the door proved to be unhelpful. As Bill tried to open the door, the knob fell out into his hand. He lifted it up to his eyes and said, "Yup, that sounds about right." This place was old and pretty much condemned, something like this was bound to happen. He pushed against the door with his body, nothing. So the knob was busted, but not the latch or the strike.

He turned to his partner who was more gleaming, likely because they couldn't get in.

"hey, don't give me that look. You know I'm more stubborn than that," Bill laughed at his partner's gleeful appearance. The squirtle responded with a cheeky tongue doing the "na na na" sound effect.

"Come on, you jokester, let's check around back. Maybe there's another door."

The two started walking the perimeter. Behind the house was a garden of some sort, apparently it had been kept at one point, considering the prescence of a shed. Though, it too had been long since abandoned. Still though, maybe he could find something to help him pry the door open with. Though as he approached, he noticed a small nest with three baby Murkrows sitting in it, ready to be fed.

"Hey Silver look" but the Squirtle had already noticed, and he pointed out something else in the tree, some sort of feline Pokemon, ready to be fed. Before it could attack, and Bill react, the mother, a honchkrow managed to chase it away. But that wasn't enough, true to dark type fashion, it started to beat on the kitten.

Bill sighed, the cat was trying to attack its young, but that didn't mean it deserved this bad a beating. Still though, getting involved with a high level Pokemon meant that he needed to be prepared. He looked at Silver and said, "You ready?"

The water Pokemon had the look of determination on his face, already in a battle stance.

"Okay, let's start off nice and simple. Use your Water Gun on the Honchkrow, then Bubble to slow it down, okay?"

"Squirt". Silver took a deep breath ready to fight against the Honchkrow.

You notice that the aura surrounding the Decidueye's eyes is beginning to fade and flicker at times, perhaps it was indeed tied to the pool? Nethertheless, the archer still seemed intent on putting an end to all of your Pokemon, although it would likely have its hands full with Volg once again being consumed by the Baimon. As his tail flame erupted, he rushed the Decidueye, embers gathering in his maw. Leaping he sunk his fiery fangs into the Decidueye's right arms, causing it to screech in pain as it jumped backwards. Zyll took aim, firing a Flamethrower that struck the slowed Archer in the chest. The Grass type trembles from the blow as it crashes into the water, but it doesn't appear to have done enough to put an end to it.

With a whip of its arm the crazed Decidueye frees itself from Volg's grip, sending the Charmander crashing into the water. In the middle of the pool the water is quite deep, easily above the Charmander's head height. The water sizzles as the Charmander flails and tries to keep its tail above the water, the flame is slowly starting to die down. The Decidueye suddenly disappears, like a phantom in the night however you can still sense its eerie presence. It probably wouldn't be long before it attacked again, but hopefully it would be enough time to rescue Volg before he drowned or his tail flame was extinguished.
It seemed as if Riolu’s approach was working – whatever that was – as the pond began to clear up and Decidueye seemed to be affected. However, that was just about the only thing that Rorik had going for him – because in the blink of an eye, the lone sniper had turned the tables of the fight and thrown Volg straight into the pond!

“N… No! Volg!!”

Conflicted, shocked and terrified, the Professor froze. He knew he had to do something about the drowning Charmander, but at the same time, Decidueye had vanished like a phantom and was bound to strike soon; when, or from where, Rorik had no idea, which meant both Zyll and Riolu were vulnerable. And to make matters worse, the former was blind, and the latter was busy...

Riolu is the key to solving this problem. Whatever the cost, we have to keep him safe! I have to be pragmatic here… and trust my companions!”

This was a place of darkness, one that Zyll was best equipped to adapt to out of all of them. It pained him to do so, but they needed a shield, and his Deino was the best one available. He’d have to be the one keeping Riolu safe!

“Zyll, stay sharp! Decidueye can come from anywhere, but darkness is your element,” encouraged the Heimlan. “ Stay close to Riolu so he won’t be hit, Focus your Energy and blast that owl with another Dark Pulse as soon as you catch its scent!”

The rest… is up to me.

He felt thankful for losing his lab coat earlier; the less he had on him to weigh him down now, the better… Rorik approached the edge of the lake, took a deep breath and – possessed by some kind of foolish Heimlan bravery – jumped into the pond to rescue Volg himself!

Hang in there just a little longer! I’ll bring you back to safety, I swear to Arceus!

He would sort out the “how” when he reached the drake, but Volg wasn’t terribly heavy, so hopefully keeping him afloat and the flame out of the water wouldn’t be an impossible task. Even for someone as physically frail as the Professor…

Gemini Spark- Hope suddenly returns as both Henrietta and Nissa undergo a drastic change, evolving in unison and freeing themselves from the grasp of the Feraligatr. As the pair marvel at their new forms and the power that comes with them, Ginny also begins to change. The Palpitoad’s metamorphosis finally reaches completion as she grows much large. Arms sprout, and her tail disappears as she reaches her final form, Ginny was now a full evolved Seismitoad! Finally able to get free of the Feraligatr, Ginny spits some acid down the Feraligatr’s gullet, a parting gift for the Pokemon who had almost claimed her life. “Ginny, you finally evolved!” Emily cries out, overjoyed by the shift in momentum.

With the tables turning, it was now or never if you were going to finish off the Feraligatr. Henrietta puts her developing vocal cords to good use, letting out an echoing croak. The gator stumbles as the sound waves strike him, leaving him exposed as Nissa comes in to strike. Putting her new body to the test, she strikes across the Feraligatr’s stomach with a Fury Cutter. The Feraligatr groans as it is continually pushed back, unable to regain the front foot. Ginny flails at the opposing Water type with her newly developed arms, striking him with a blow made stronger by the severe damage the Feraligatr had caused her. Henrietta gives a repeat performance, her attack becoming twice as stronger and causing the Feraligatr even more pain. A second Fury Cutter from Nissa is also much stronger, causing the Feraligatr to slump over. It was clearly at its end, but somehow it was managing to hold on. Suddenly the Feraligatr looks sick, as the poison once again grips its system it falls, face first into the ground.

The bikers gasp in shock, they hadn’t expected you and Emily to overcome the ancient Feraligatr. “Alright, we had a deal, we beat the Feraligatr and now you need to tell us what you know.” Emily was quick to make demands, perhaps too quick.

The bikers were true to their word however, with the gang leader quickly stepping forward, hands still clapping. “Well done, that was impressive. I’ll tell you what you want to know, just make sure they don’t find out that we told you. We were approached by a business man, he offered us a large some of cash to sabotage your ranch. Can’t say I remember his name but he left a business card with us in case we needed to contact him.” The biker hands Emily the business card, before him and his men make their way back inside. “Please make your way off our property.”

Emily inspects the business card before showing it to you. “Thank you so much for your help, there was no way we could have beaten that Feraligatr by ourselves.” Reading the card, it seems it belongs to a Trent Connors, an entrepreneur based out of the city. His phone number and business address were also on the card. “So, what do you suggest we do now?”


Maskerade- With Volg flailing in the water and the Decidueye having momentarily disappeared, you leap into the slowly clearing pool. Zyll moves into position, intent on protecting the Riolu as it continues to purify the tainted water. The Deino focuses his energy, enhancing his senses. With the boost in hand, he starts to sense movement around him, the Decidueye was still here. As you strike through the waist deep water towards Volg, you notice that the water is all but cleared, only a small portion of the tainted water remains, surrounding the struggling Charmander. As the Riolu works to complete its task, the Decidueye suddenly reappears, striking Zyll out of the way with a powerful blow.

Zyll scrambles back to his feet, as the Decidueye looms over the defenceless Riolu, ready to finish it off before it can remove the entirety of the foul energy polluting the water. Suddenly a pulse of Dark energy slams into the Decidueye’s exposed flank, landing a critical blow that causes it to let out an ear-piercing screech as it slumps to the ground. The aura possessing it fades as it passes out, unconscious on the hard stone floor.

You grab a hold of Volg as the Decidueye faints, but you notice the remaining aura rush into the Charmander’s body. The effects are immediate as Volg’s eyes erupt in the aura, his tail flame turning a dark crimson. He bites down on your arm, causing you to reel backwards in pain. The Charmander springs off of you, landing by the side of the pool and growling at Zyll. The Riolu, having finished purifying the pool, opens his eyes to see what has occurred in his absence. He is surprised to see the Decidueye lying unconscious, just inches away from him while the Charmander who had been defending him now seemed to be turning against them.

As you watch Volg make his way towards his friends, blood drips from your arm into the water. As the blood hits the water, a faint glow in the shape of a Y appears on the bottom of the pool before fading. The last of the tainted aura was now residing inside Volg, with its strength compared with the rage of the Baimon, he would likely be hard to control….

last update here


=-------------------~Morningstar~-------------------=

As you listened to the girl's reading, you felt nostalgic --- it reminded you of your own mother. You began to feel a little tired, obviously preparing yourself to check out. It had been a long day, first the trek through the graveyard, and then the fight with Palmier, and now taking the girl on her errands and then home. It wasn't a bad thing, but it was certainly exhausting. As the girl finished her story, you snapped back to reality upon seeing the girl walk back to you. She wrapped her fingers in your own, holding your hand once again, finally ready to get home. You smiled to yourself, looking down at the little girl. The storybook was clutched in her other hand, resting against her hip. It was at this moment that you realized that you had never asked the girl her name --- taking this moment to do so.

"Oh! I'm Margaret!" She smiled, saying her own name. "My mommy calls me Mae though, I think it sounds cuter." Her dress blew in the wind, tattered at this point. She looked down, frustrated. "Momma is gonna be upset though... I ruined my new dress." She frowned, patting down the front of her dress. She sighed, looking at you with those big blue eyes. They were so deep and full of emotion for such a small girl, reflected like pools in the pale moonlight that shone down upon her. "I missed my mama, I hope she isn't too mad at me..." The girl looked around, seeing the dreariness of the graveyard around herself. Unlike you, however, the graveyard itself didn't seem to bother her as much as it had initially bothered you. She was used to it, skipping around like a carefree little girl. Certain graves made her stop, admiring the headstone before saying something to them. Almost as like she was greeting the dead. It was kind of cute, to say the least. The little girl obviously understood death, but not in the same way an adult would. She just understood it as that there was someone below there, sleeping. The girl spoke up once again, sounding cheery.

"Momma says we have to be nice to the sleeping people, or they'll snatch you from your bed at night. I always make sure to say hello to everyone on my way home, I don't want them to think I'm rude!" She looked down at another grave, giving a chipper 'hello' accompanied by a wave as the two of you passed. It was that kind of innocence you envied, and who were you to ruin the girl's fun? As you continued your trek through the graveyard, you noticed a house coming up --- it was resting on top of a hill, lights dimly lit with a small figure in the front facing window. You felt the grip on your hand tighten, as the girl looked towards the house.

"Oh! That's my home! I see momma in the window!" The girl tugged on your hand, urging you to rush to the house with her. You wondered to yourself what you would ever tell this child's mother about what happened to the child... As you both approached the door, Mae gave a rough tug, noticing it was refusing to budge. She knocked on the door with her little fist, causing what sounded like someone walking towards the door to be heard.

What do you plan on saying to this girl's mother? What do you do?


=-------------------~TKF~-------------------=

As yourself and Slyvi walked into the courtyard, she pointed towards a statue of the aforementioned late mad King, causing the sword he was holding to angrily come swinging towards you. Sylvi clutched her hand to her side, as if ready to pull out a Pokeball to jump on the defensive. You jumped in front of her, sword in hand, telling her to step back. She huffed, puffing out her cheeks angrily.

"I can handle myself!" She put her hands on her hips, causing her Rapidash to let out a hoarse whinny, as if laughing at his trainer's antics. She was cut short by a loud metallic scraping sound, causing her to cover her ears. The little bugger was trying to lower their defenses while boosting it's attack to take them all out as quickly as possible. "We need to take care of this thing, and if you'd just let me he-" She was cut off by the large owl stepping in front of her, ready to fight off the angry possessed sword. Atalanta had a fierce look in her eyes, she was fueled by an unforeseen force to fight with all her might. At their trainer's commands, Trieu and Boudicca stepped back --- the Skorupi tugging on Sylvi's overskirt to get her to move back with them.

Sylvi knew for a fact that the Honedge had an advantage here, but she need not worry --- as Atalanta had a particularly long reach, allowing her to take out opponents from far away with ease. The Honedge's eyes again tilted angrily seeing the owl step up to the plate, it's tassel blowing in the wind as it squared off with the rather large owl. Atalanta made the earth lift quickly in a rapid drill run caused by her needle-like feathers, she followed it up in quick succession with an astonish --- causing the Honedge to give a loud scream. It sounded extremely angry with the owl, rushing forward quickly to slash at the owl furiously. It dished out a rather sinister Fury Cutter, causing Atalanta to give a loud cawk. It followed it up with an Aerial Ace, which made Atalanta wince. It was clear that this was not going to be such an easy opponent to deal with, as both Pokemon on the field looked to be in about equal shape.

What do you do?


=-------------------~Iron~-------------------=

As you approached the castle, you couldn't help but feel the foreboding air that the castle was emitting. Legend had it that the King was driven made by something clawing at the very air, was it the atmosphere that drove him mad? Or was it something that was resting within the very walls of this tremendous establishment? Whatever it could be, this place gave you the creeps. Not that Hope seemed to mind, the sinister Shuppet felt right at home in such a place. She loved the air, and she was extremely thrilled that her master had finally listened to her to go to the Bayou. As the doors swung open, you felt a chill shoot through your very being. There were no signs of life here, nor had there been for quite some time. The castle itself was falling apart, things thrown about in disarray. Mud... and maybe blood, was caked around the floor --- a grim, yet permanent reminder of what had occurred here. No one was really sure what had happened to the mad king, legend has it that he just went wild one day and slaughtered countless innocents. No one is really sure of the entire story, nor what his wrath consisted of. Some assume it was lost to time, as was this castle.

You feet clicked across the floor loudly, causing an echo that shook you to your very core. It was dark, the only light coming from...

Torches?

That's odd, there were fired torches that had seemingly been recently lit lining the halls. It wasn't enough to give off proper light, but enough to render the castle at least visible. You swore there was no one here but you, those gates had been firmly sealed. However, these torches made you think otherwise. Were some sort of squatters living here? Staying warm by the torches and using them to scare trespassers away? Or was it something far more sinister..? It was hard to say, but this probably wasn't the kind of place you'd want to come if you felt easily afraid or anxious.

As you walked further, you noticed a crossroads. You could go straight, leading towards the throne room, go left --- towards a kitchen, or simply go right, to a darkened hallway.

What do you do?


=-------------------~Lit~-------------------=

Mania.

Mania was all that could describe you at the moment. Was the castle driving you mad? Your Litwick's worried expression made you wonder if you really were frightening, and if everything up to this point was for naught. Your laughing and chanting fit had caught both Pokemon off guard, causing the Foongus to hide behind his companion. As you sat on the floor, looking at your two Pokemon with worry in their eyes, you felt your head begin to ring. It was loud, a loud echo that made everything fade to black. A scene unfolded in front of you, curiosity pinged at your mind. Was this a memory? A twinkle of your darkened past? As you awoke, you felt drawn to those bright eyes in the darkness. Something about them seemed important, but you couldn't place why. As you sat up, your two Pokemon looked filled with concern. You ensured the two that you were fine as you stood on shaking legs, looking in the direction that you had spotted the eyes.

Your Pokemon followed you, blindly, without hesitation. What good were they to a master if they did not obey? As you walked towards where the eyes were, you found yourself in a rather dimly lit hallway. It was hard to make anything out in the crisp blackness that enveloped your very being. Luckily for you, you had a light with you. Wisp took up the head of the pack, making his small flame glow larger to aid you in the darkness. Once the room was more lit, you could make out that this was seemingly a trophy room. Swords, goblets, and the heads of Sawsbuck lined the walls as you walked. Lavishly painted portraits of the late king were present every few steps, the most recent one portraying him as a more rugged and ragged looking man. The type of man you would expect to see as a villain.

When you reached the end, you realized it did not lead to a dead end like a trophy room normally would. Rather, due to the decay of the castle there was a small hole in the wall. It was big enough to allow you through it so long as you crawled, and it seemed to be housing whatever was watching you --- as little footprints were present in the earthy debris that had fallen from the hole.

This might be the answer you're looking for. What do you do?

Officer Harrison gives you a nod as he mumbles something under his breath, although it seems he is at least pleased that you made up for your mistake. You instruct everyone to target the Golbat, having perhaps worked out the bats mindset. Geddy fires a Charge Beam straight for the Golbat, however the unparalyzed Zubat quickly swoops in to intercept. As Geddy glows, having gained a boost to his special attack, Harrison's Squirtle shoots a Water Gun at the Golbat, just as Hotstuff lets loose a flamethrower. The two attacks look certain to hit their mark, but at the last moment, the paralyzed Zubat manages to get itself in the way. The bat screeches, clearly in pain but for now it seems intent on sticking by its master. The Golbat screeches at the top of its lungs, causing all three opposing Pokemon to tremble as their defense is cut in half. The Screech also seems to be a signal to his minions, who quickly descend on Geddy. The bats nearly tear the Tynamo in two as they sink their fangs into his soft flesh, leeching the life from his body and healing their own injuries.

The bats cling to the Tynamo until Geddy lights up with a Thunderbolt, the electricity sends the two flapping backwards in retreat as they lose much of the health they just recovered. Hotstuff releases a Heatwave, which is blocked by the two smaller bats who finds themselves charred and weary. Finally, Harrison's Squirtle releases an Icy Wind, the Super Effective attack is the last the Zubat's block as they crash to the ground, frozen stiff.

"Looks like we just have the big one to deal with now", grumbles the Officer, "lets make this quick shall we?"
Big glares down the swarm of bats as the battle continues. He has his pokemon (along with the squirtle) focus on the golbat the opposing them and just according to his plan the zubats throw themselves in the way of the plethora of attacks intended for their leader. Big chuckles as his mind fades away to an old strategy guide for Kingdra Hearts, where the strategy to beat the first boss was to focus the main body and let the extra parts get in the way and they would end up getting defeated. He reconnects with the present as the zubats hit the ground. He instinctually reaches for an empty pokeball but pauses. He couldn't explain it but he knew that these wouldn't be the zubat to join him on his journey. He turns back to the golbat and nods to the Officer. "Yeah, lets. Like he said just one left! Hotstuff go for a flamethrower, and then lets go for the finishing blow with overheat!" He calls to the fire type. The charmander nods and lets out a slight sigh, the same sigh you might hear from someone carrying a box standing at the bottom of a flight of stairs. We shouldn't drag this out too much longer, Overheat might tire Hotstuff out a little but we can fall back on dragon claw if we need to. He thinks to himself. "Geddy, you keep up with two more thunderbolts." He says, knowing that the boost from the charge beam wouldn't be worth the extra damage from thunderbolt at this point.

It was clear that this was not going to be such an easy opponent to deal with, as both Pokemon on the field looked to be in about equal shape.

What do you do?
Atalanta was relentless in her pursuit of the Honedge, striking some nasty blows. However she had also taken a couple of hits herself, made worse by the drop of her defense stat. Despite this she seemed to be fighting with an unexplainable vigour, like her strength was growing with each beat of her wings. Suddenly Atalanta let out a high pitch screech at the Honedge, issuing her response to its challenges as her feathers begin to glow.

"I see now", smirked Jayson, he had been waiting a while for this very moment. The last time he saw her feathers glow like this was in Bedlam, Atalanta was starting to evolve. As she descends towards the ground, her entire body is enveloped by the bright glowing light. As her claws hit the cobblestone floor, her body begins to stretch and change. She grew much taller, her wings lengthened considerably and a hood developed, covering her head. As the light finally fades, Jayson pulls out his Pokedex to scan his newly evolved Decidueye. "You look amazing Atalanta!" Jayson shouted as his starter assessed her new body. The evolution had brought with it a new typing, with Atalanta shedding her Flying typing in exchange for the Ghost type. That gave her a direct advantage and disadvantage in this fight, but thankfully the evolution had given her a few new toys.

Atalanta evolved into a Decidueye!

"Right Atalanta, how about we show this Honedge your real power? Disappear into the shadows then strike with Phantom Force! Then Sucker Punch it as it comes into attack before locking it down with your signature move, SPIRIT SHACKLE!" Jayson couldn't believe how strong Atalanta looked now, with her by his side he knew they could handle any threat. "Atalanta will make quick work of this Honedge now Sylvi", Jayson reassured the young woman as he collected a Pokeball from his bag. Should the Honedge appear weakened enough, he would attempt to catch it.

That's odd, there were fired torches that had seemingly been recently lit lining the halls. It wasn't enough to give off proper light, but enough to render the castle at least visible. You swore there was no one here but you, those gates had been firmly sealed. However, these torches made you think otherwise. Were some sort of squatters living here? Staying warm by the torches and using them to scare trespassers away? Or was it something far more sinister..? It was hard to say, but this probably wasn't the kind of place you'd want to come if you felt easily afraid or anxious.

As you walked further, you noticed a crossroads. You could go straight, leading towards the throne room, go left --- towards a kitchen, or simply go right, to a darkened hallway.

What do you do?
The imposing castle was dark inside, the gloomy interior lit only by some torches of mysterious origin. Someone else was here. Despite the fact the place was locked up. Hope and Sheut were happy enough inside the abandoned chateau, but Liawe was more unnerved. The torchlight revealed mysterious stains on the walls and damaged furniture everywhere, as if a riotous mob had charged into the castle... or out of it. Releasing Carl from his Pokeball, she allowed the Starly to scout ahead, its Keen Eye hopefully proving to be of use in the murky conditions. And it wasn't long before something came up: A crossroads. Ahead lay a large room of some form, likely a throne room if generic castle design could be trusted. To the left appeared to be the kitchens, judging by the door plaque, whereas the right lead straight into a pitch-black hallway. Liawe's initial instinct was to take the fourth exit and bail straight back out the way she'd entered, but her Pokemon had other ideas, as Sheut and Carl forged ahead into the throne room, Hope not far behind. Sighing, Liawe followed them. She could hardly abandon her squad in here, and she wasn't entirely sure of the way out alone either. Plus, someone had lit those torches, and recently. Someone... or something. Liawe had no idea who or what it was, or why they had done it, and quite frankly she had no intention of meeting them and finding out what abominations still called these archaic ruins home, lest one of them be the reason the Mad King earned his title, and decided to bestow upon Liawe the same fate...

With the boost in hand, he starts to sense movement around him, the Decidueye was still here. As you strike through the waist deep water towards Volg, you notice that the water is all but cleared, only a small portion of the tainted water remains, surrounding the struggling Charmander. As the Riolu works to complete its task, the Decidueye suddenly reappears, striking Zyll out of the way with a powerful blow.

Zyll scrambles back to his feet, as the Decidueye looms over the defenceless Riolu, ready to finish it off before it can remove the entirety of the foul energy polluting the water. Suddenly a pulse of Dark energy slams into the Decidueye’s exposed flank, landing a critical blow that causes it to let out an ear-piercing screech as it slumps to the ground. The aura possessing it fades as it passes out, unconscious on the hard stone floor.

You grab a hold of Volg as the Decidueye faints, but you notice the remaining aura rush into the Charmander’s body. The effects are immediate as Volg’s eyes erupt in the aura, his tail flame turning a dark crimson. He bites down on your arm, causing you to reel backwards in pain. The Charmander springs off of you, landing by the side of the pool and growling at Zyll. The Riolu, having finished purifying the pool, opens his eyes to see what has occurred in his absence. He is surprised to see the Decidueye lying unconscious, just inches away from him while the Charmander who had been defending him now seemed to be turning against them.

As you watch Volg make his way towards his friends, blood drips from your arm into the water. As the blood hits the water, a faint glow in the shape of a Y appears on the bottom of the pool before fading. The last of the tainted aura was now residing inside Volg, with its strength compared with the rage of the Baimon, he would likely be hard to control….
N.. no... it can't be!

The team's happiness was short-lived. Zyll had managed to stop Decidueye, violently as he had to do so... but they had failed to prevent the darkness from infecting another. This time, one of them.

"Volg!!"

Fangs pierced Rorik's arm, drawing blood before the Professor could move away. The Charmander was now engulfed in the same shadowy aura as Decidueye once had been, and it sent him into a rage comparable to that of his lingering affliction. Volg had lost sight of reason, all those that moved becoming targets for his dark fury.

But suddenly, there was light.

What is that?...

Something shone brightly at the bottom of the lake. Had that light always been there, concealed under the darkness that Riolu had cleansed, or was it... reacting to Rorik's blood?

Could he afford to look into it? Should he divert his attention from Volg? Maybe if that glow could somehow purge the evil from within the Charmander, but...

Only I can reach it. But that would mean leaving Zyll and Riolu alone with a possessed Volg, and...

There had to be a way to solve this. Riolu was the key, Rorik was certain - he had cleansed the lake and Decidueye, surely he could do the same to Volg! But would they have to fight? Would they have to hurt their firend in the process?...

Maybe not...

"VOLG!" he shouted from within the lake. "Now's the time to see if you really are the strongest! Zyll has just defeated a fully-evolved Decidueye! Can you really beat that? You've always had that doubt inside you, haven't you? If you really are as good as him?"

The Deino stepped back instinctively, failing to see what Rorik was trying to accomplish. He didn't want to fight anyone, let alone a teammate. Unless...

"Now's your chance, right? A one-on-one fight with Zyll!"

Riolu... Riolu, can you hear me? he tried to communicate with the Fighting-Type. The Pokemon could read auras... would he be able to hear him? Riolu, you have to help Zyll! Can you show him what Volg will attempt to do with your Foresight? I need Volg to be distracted for long enough so you can purify him!

Zyll looked uncomfortable, but something told him Rorik knew what he was doing. They needed Riolu, but Volg would destroy the little thing the minute he got up close. Did Rorik want him... to keep Volg distracted?
Hoping that was the case, the Deino opened his maw to let out a powerful Roar, which hopefully would make Volg at least hesitate to strike. But if it came down to it, he might have to push it back with a Headbutt or two until Riolu could find an opening...

It's all I got. If Riolu fails to help Volg, then I don't know what to do! Unless that light source at the bottom of the lake has some miraculous properties... I have to try!

Fighting through the pain in his arm, Rorik took the deepest breath he could, and dove down to meet the origin of the strange light at the bottom of the pool...

Biggggg5- With only the Golbat remaining, Geddy, Hotstuff and the Squirtle center their attention on the big mouthed bat. Uno, Dos, Tres, a Flamethrower, a Thunderbolt and an Ice Beam are launched at the poisonous pest, the collection of energies crackle against each other as they form into one mighty beam. The Golbat is simply overwhelmed, shocked and unsure of what to do it is forced to take the hit, one it wouldn't be shrugging off. The resulting explosion shakes the tunnel and fills it with dust and smoke, concealing the bat from view.

Officer Harrison coughs as he tries not to inhale too much of the smoke, he seems thankful when it finally disperses. You look around for signs of the Golbat and Zubat but they are gone, nowhere to be seen. "Well thank Arceus they're gone, surprised you didn't disappear in the smoke either. Perhaps you are innocent, but we will know for sure soon enough."

Geddy gained 3 levels! Hotstuff gained 3 levels!

Officer Harrison leads you through the remainder of the tunnel, eventually coming to a small hole in a wall. It is only just big enough for you to get through, following the Officer you worm your way through to find yourself standing in a bank vault. The vault was open, but the bank was closed for business, it was a crime scene after all. A number of other police officers were inspecting the bank, but it was only Officer Harrison and yourself within the vault. Looking around you notice several lockboxes had been torn open, large scratch marks having torn through the metal. "If your Charmander would kindly hold his claws up against one of the marks, we can have this resolved nice and quickly."

Hotstuff sighs, he was innocent but he would comply if it meant the Officer would stop accusing them and leave them alone. Holding his clawed hand up again one of the torn lockboxes, it is quite obvious that his claws are drastically smaller.

"Arceus damn it", moans the officer as he kicks at the ground, "I guess you're innocent then. If I don't find those gems the boss will have my badge, or worse, he will stick me with a desk job." While Hotstuff had been proving his innocence, Geddy had been busy inspecting the hole in the vault wall. The hole was made from the outside, there were claw marks all around the outside and rubble was piled up neatly. Looking at the top of the tunnel, Geddy notices something import and quickly buzzes to get your attention. Sticking your head back through the hole, you look up to see what Geddy had found, there were claw marks all over the tunnel ceiling, leading back down the path!


Maskerade- With Volg succumbing to the dark aura, you place hope in the Riolu. The young fighting type had managed to purify the water, surely he could do something similar for Volg? You try to reach out to the Riolu, hoping it would be able to sense your intentions. The Riolu seems to understand what you want, but whether it will be able to fulfill your requests is unsure. You ignite Volg's fury further, talking about Zyll in order to get the Charmander to focus his energy of the Deino. The tactic is successful, perhaps too much so as Volg attacks with relentless force. He rushes the Zyll, the Deino attempts to roar and put a bit of reluctance into the Charmander, but the Fire types mind is not his own. Coated in Dragon energy, he slams into Zyll, sending the blind dragon crashing into the wall of the tunnel. The Riolu seems reluctant to approach Volg in his current state, seemingly lacking the confidence to carry out such an action.

Zyll groans as he rises to his feet, Volg wasn't himself but he was still as strong, perhaps even stronger. Bellowing, the Deino rushes forward and headbutts the Charmander, slamming head first into his stomach. Volg skids backwards, remaining on his feet as he flinches. Zyll rams the Charmander with another headbutt, but Volg almost seems to grin. Suddenly his tail erupts as his Blaze is activated, the towering, black stained flame symbolized a drastic increase in his power. At close range Volg smashes Zyll with a Fire Blast. Despite resisting the attack, the sheer power Volg is packing at the moment means the Deino is devastated by the blow. Burns cover the Deino's chest, Zyll appears to just be clinging on. A sinister smile rests on Volg's face as he prepares to finish off Zyll, who can do nothing to defend himself at this point. Suddenly the Riolu leaps at Volg, spurred on by Zyll's fighting spirit. It slams its palm into the possessed Charmander's side, hitting a pressure point that causes his body to stiffen with paralysis.

Zyll was all but beaten, Volg was weakening but possessed incredible strength and the Riolu had shown some signs of strength. Hoping that mark on the bottom of the pool could provide some assistance, you submerge yourself, reaching out to touch the mark. As your fingers reach the glowing symbol, your body is struck with unimaginable pain. You quickly pull your hand back, but not before your mind is flushed with thoughts of pain and suffering. You feel unmeasurable anger and hatred like nothing you had ever experienced before. Gasping for air you retreat to the side of the pool, it appears the mark might actually be the source of the darkness.....

It had been a long day, first the trek through the graveyard, and then the fight with Palmier, and now taking the girl on her errands and then home. It wasn't a bad thing, but it was certainly exhausting. As the girl finished her story, you snapped back to reality upon seeing the girl walk back to you. She wrapped her fingers in your own, holding your hand once again, finally ready to get home. You smiled to yourself, looking down at the little girl. The storybook was clutched in her other hand, resting against her hip. It was at this moment that you realized that you had never asked the girl her name --- taking this moment to do so.

"Oh! I'm Margaret!" She smiled, saying her own name. "My mommy calls me Mae though, I think it sounds cuter." Her dress blew in the wind, tattered at this point. She looked down, frustrated. "Momma is gonna be upset though... I ruined my new dress." She frowned, patting down the front of her dress. She sighed, looking at you with those big blue eyes. They were so deep and full of emotion for such a small girl, reflected like pools in the pale moonlight that shone down upon her. "I missed my mama, I hope she isn't too mad at me..." The girl looked around, seeing the dreariness of the graveyard around herself. Unlike you, however, the graveyard itself didn't seem to bother her as much as it had initially bothered you. She was used to it, skipping around like a carefree little girl. Certain graves made her stop, admiring the headstone before saying something to them. Almost as like she was greeting the dead. It was kind of cute, to say the least. The little girl obviously understood death, but not in the same way an adult would. She just understood it as that there was someone below there, sleeping. The girl spoke up once again, sounding cheery.

"Momma says we have to be nice to the sleeping people, or they'll snatch you from your bed at night. I always make sure to say hello to everyone on my way home, I don't want them to think I'm rude!" She looked down at another grave, giving a chipper 'hello' accompanied by a wave as the two of you passed. It was that kind of innocence you envied, and who were you to ruin the girl's fun? As you continued your trek through the graveyard, you noticed a house coming up --- it was resting on top of a hill, lights dimly lit with a small figure in the front facing window. You felt the grip on your hand tighten, as the girl looked towards the house.

"Oh! That's my home! I see momma in the window!" The girl tugged on your hand, urging you to rush to the house with her. You wondered to yourself what you would ever tell this child's mother about what happened to the child... As you both approached the door, Mae gave a rough tug, noticing it was refusing to budge. She knocked on the door with her little fist, causing what sounded like someone walking towards the door to be heard.

What do you plan on saying to this girl's mother? What do you do?


"Mae!" Athena said, delighted. "What a cute name." She watched the girl look down at her ruined dress. She wished she had any kind of sewing skills, but the dress looked tattered beyond simple repair. Mae stopped at a grave and greeted the soul who rested there with childish glee. Athena couldn't help but follow suit. It helped the graveyard seem less spooky. By now, she was feeling a lot more comfortable. She and Eclair had battled and caught a Ghost pokemon, saving the little girl from his clutches. Once they dropped Mae off, getting back home would likely be a breeze. Palmier was even looking less grumpy, and more interested in following Athena and Mae through the graveyard. She saw him wave to a couple gravestones.

Mae's hand tightened around Athena's just as she finished greeting the headstone of someone who had died almost a hundred years ago by now. She looked up to see a house perched on a hill. It looked quaint, but Athena was worried that Mae's demeanor had changed. Depsite her worries about what her mother might say, Mae pulled Athena up the hill to her house. The girl knocked on the large wooden door, and soon the figure they had seen in the window approached the door. Quickly, Athena pulled out Palmier's Pokeball and recalled him. They didn't have to mention the whole being attacked by a Pokemon thing. She didn't want to cause any conflict with Mae being able to go out again and read to her grandfather. She took a deep breath before the door opened and put on her best smile.

"Good evening, madam," She started. Her voice went a bit higher to indicate friendly politeness. "My name is Athena. I ran into Mae and I wanted to make sure she got home alright."

Mania was all that could describe you at the moment. Was the castle driving you mad? Your Litwick's worried expression made you wonder if you really were frightening, and if everything up to this point was for naught. Your laughing and chanting fit had caught both Pokemon off guard, causing the Foongus to hide behind his companion. As you sat on the floor, looking at your two Pokemon with worry in their eyes, you felt your head begin to ring. It was loud, a loud echo that made everything fade to black. A scene unfolded in front of you, curiosity pinged at your mind. Was this a memory? A twinkle of your darkened past? As you awoke, you felt drawn to those bright eyes in the darkness. Something about them seemed important, but you couldn't place why. As you sat up, your two Pokemon looked filled with concern. You ensured the two that you were fine as you stood on shaking legs, looking in the direction that you had spotted the eyes.

Your Pokemon followed you, blindly, without hesitation. What good were they to a master if they did not obey? As you walked towards where the eyes were, you found yourself in a rather dimly lit hallway. It was hard to make anything out in the crisp blackness that enveloped your very being. Luckily for you, you had a light with you. Wisp took up the head of the pack, making his small flame glow larger to aid you in the darkness. Once the room was more lit, you could make out that this was seemingly a trophy room. Swords, goblets, and the heads of Sawsbuck lined the walls as you walked. Lavishly painted portraits of the late king were present every few steps, the most recent one portraying him as a more rugged and ragged looking man. The type of man you would expect to see as a villain.

When you reached the end, you realized it did not lead to a dead end like a trophy room normally would. Rather, due to the decay of the castle there was a small hole in the wall. It was big enough to allow you through it so long as you crawled, and it seemed to be housing whatever was watching you --- as little footprints were present in the earthy debris that had fallen from the hole.

This might be the answer you're looking for. What do you do?
It was said that a Litwick would leads its prey astray with its light, for the only purpose of devouring their soul. It would be fitting here, in a place where sanity doesn't apply, for his very own starter to kill him. Wisp would never do that, of course, at least on purpose. But Austin blindly followed his partner, keeping Custer close in hand. The trainer marveled at the heads of dead Sawsbuck displayed on the walls. All bucks of different seasons, each magnificently preserved to keep their beauty. He also saw portraits of the late king, who went from a dashing young fellow to a rugged, almost deranged old man. A hero that fell into villainy seemed to be the perfect description for the king. Would that be him one day, senile and still without memories from a short time of his life? No. He was told to find what he had lost. He needed to.

Yet, his stroll into the trophy room soon ended, but not with what he was expecting. Instead of a dead end, a small hole sat in the decayed walls. It looked small enough for him to just barely crawl through. Yet, whatever was watching him. Perceiving him.... It was in there. So he would follow it. He judged by the size of the hole that Wisp could fit, but he wouldn't be able to see much besides the candle's waxy figure. So, instead, he asked Wisp to follow behind him. To illuminate his trainer's way through the small crevice. The teen got on his knee and started to crawl through the hole. Soon he saw a dim purple light illuminating a few inches in front of him, but not much else. This could get him killed... Well, it wouldn't have been the first time. But there was no need to think back on that crazy Hex Maniac now. Forwards was the only option, and deeper down the rabbit hole he went.

Big covers his face quickly to keep dust from the resulting explosion getting into his eyes and mouth.

He says to the pokemon, also giving a nod to the squirtle. He turns over to the officer and nods. "Yes let's get this squared away." Hotstuff rolls his eyes once more but holds up his claws to the marks and finds that his claws are way too small. "I told you, I would have burned my way in anyway." Hotstuff says. Big nods. "That settles that then." Big says confidently. He looks around the rest of the vault. "Weird, they only took gems? It looks like there is plenty of other valuable stuff that was left behind." He says rubbing his chin. "Wait, if they only took gems and these claw marks are this big-" "Heeey! I found somthin." Geddy calls back from the tunnel. Big hears the cry of the electric type and goes to see what is going on. "More claw marks!" Big says. He opens up his pokedex and scrolls through it. "I think I know the identity of your thief Officer." He shows a picture of a sableye to the older man. "This is one of the pokemon I was looking for, if you'll have me, Id like to come with you to recover the gems if I can try to capture it. Plus I'll be able to keep it out of trouble in the future."

Biggggg5- Upon taking in all the evidence, including the evidence found by 'detective' Geddy, you surmise that the criminal in question is in fact a Sableye. Harrison ponders this for a moment, but even he couldn't deny that it made sense.

"I think you could be right, but I don't think you should get ahead of yourself. If it is in fact a wild Pokemon, then having you battle and capture it would help prevent a repeat of what happened here. However, we don't know whether it is wild or if it was following orders from a trainer. We also need to try and recover the gems. So if you're willing to help me track it down, your help would be appreciated and rewarded." You weren't about to deny his offer, already having expressed your interest in pursuing the gem thief. You give the officer a nod, he would have your aid. "Excellent, we better get going if we are going to have any hope of tracking it down."

The pair of you and your Pokemon climb back out of the vault and head down the tunnel once more, with Geddy keeping a close eye on the clawed ceiling. You're charging down the tunnel when all of a sudden Geddy comes to a stop, causing you all to put the breaks on. The Tynamo stares at the wall of the tunnel, the claw marks seemed to disappear! The last few seem to turn towards one of the walls, but then they simply stop. Suspecting something, Geddy charges at the wall. You go to stop him before he hurts himself, but the little eel passes straight through! He comes back out unharmed, it appears to be some sort of magical veil.

"Well would you look at that", grinned Harrison, "I don't think I've seen anything quite like that before. Squirtle, have a quick look inside and make sure the path is clear." The Squirtle nods before jogging through the fake wall. All is quiet for a moment, but then you hear a cry, followed by Harrison's Squirtle as it is sent flying back through into the main tunnel. A rock follows it, striking it in the chest, then a moment later another one strikes it. The Squirtle scrambles back to its feet, shouting and pointing through the wall.

"It seems something is guarding the other side, how should we go about this?"

An energy seemed to be pulsing through your mind, you find yourself overcome with curiosity. Sure, you had been curious to find out what exactly was going on within this establishment, but the feeling you felt now was uncomparable. You felt compelled to question everything, to investigate every sight and sound, every possibility. How was it that one shot was all that was needed to draw you under the spell of this strange narcotic? You could feel your tongue drying out, your mind called out for more of the liquor. Doug raised his eyebrows as he realized the drink had hit you.

"It's good aye", Doug laughed, "I have half a mind to get my hands on the recipe and sell it to every place in town!" You question Doug about the beverage and whether he holds any grudge against his former employers. "Ba, of course I hold a grudge, the bastards would have me live on the streets. As I said, I know they make it on site, there is a back entrance in the catacombs that run beneath the city. I had to cover for a bloke on security down there once. They were sneaking some sort of Psychic Pokemon into the makeshift lab they built down there, you could feel their pain radiating from the place."

Your brain suddenly felt overloaded, Doug had provided answers but what he had said left so many more questions. The room started to shake and spin, you felt your legs beginning to grow weak. Bel grabs a hold of your leg in an attempt to steady you, but it isn't till Jake plants his hand on your shoulder that you feel like you're stable enough. "I think it is time for us to get out of here darling. Thank you sir for keeping my lovely wife occupied but I'm afraid we have to get home to the kids."

Doug can barely sputter a goodbye before Jake drags you outside, surprisingly with the assistance of Bel. As soon as you exit the building you feel your mind clear, why would it clear so quickly? Thankfully Jake quickly provides an answer.

"Well looks like we found our answer", Jake snickers."It seems that drink is our drug and from what I can gather it seems to amplify the mood and emotions of those who drink it. It appears rather addictive as well, I'm kind of surprised it hit you so hard though. It's effect seems to wear off rather quick though, which is why I think they have made it so addictive." Bel looks at you, his eyes display concern. "Did your friend tell you anything that might help us?"

The ex-security guard duly poured the liquor into the small glass, as Hephae examined the pink liquid, in a fashion similar to many connoisseurs of fine wine, before eventually placing glass to lips and in one swift motion tipped the contents into mouth and swallowed. At first, the liquid seemed to be just that, a relatively fine liquor, an indescribable taste to it, and as she looked into the empty glass, raised a quizzical eyebrow, but before she could respond to Doug, something hit her.

She felt some strange sensation, opening her mind as clarity and curiosity amplified, the woman's other eyebrow raising, there was so much to see, so much to discover. It felt she could hear every conversation in the room, understand every crevice in the walls, the contours of the other patrons, it was all overwhelming. Taking a breath of air, she put her hand to head, taken by the kick to her system as Doug laughs, and then responds to her other question, information slamming into her with the force of a tidal wave.

"I...see..." she stuttered as the world began to spin around her, Bel fortunately on hand to try and stabilise his companion, only for Jake to arrive and help with the support, while crafting a swift alibi and helping her out of the bar as Doug can barely spit out a farewell. As she left the building, the hold of the liquor over her faded as fast as it hit her, while the private eye gives a small snicker at the predicament, before giving her what information he had. Bel looked at her, betraying a slight concern.

"Well...damn. That kicked like a Hitmonlee..." she sighed, the Mawile frowning and looking at her accusingly. "I will be fine, Bel...besides, it appears our common informer may have gave us more than enough information." Turning her head to Jake, she removed his hand from her shoulder, before giving herself a small shake to ensure she was able to stand. "The man was a former security guard here, and holds little alliance with this establishment. He let slip enough information, thanks to that...substance. From what I understand, there is an operation under the bar that produces the drink, and an entrance within the catacombs beneath the city. What is of greater concern is the reason behind the addiction.

"The brewers appear to be seizing psychic type pokemon and using some sort of influence or extract to give the drink its kick, so to speak. I sampled the brew at their behest, and the sensation seemed to fit in with your description, with enhanced sensory functionality. I would wager that the pokemon beneath here are under some form of torture, and should be liberated with caution. How should we proceed, inspector?"

Her Mawile stood by, slightly rankled that he would not be drinking tonight, but still faithful with whatever plan she possessed.

"I think you could be right, but I don't think you should get ahead of yourself. If it is in fact a wild Pokemon, then having you battle and capture it would help prevent a repeat of what happened here. However, we don't know whether it is wild or if it was following orders from a trainer. We also need to try and recover the gems. So if you're willing to help me track it down, your help would be appreciated and rewarded." You weren't about to deny his offer, already having expressed your interest in pursuing the gem thief. You give the officer a nod, he would have your aid. "Excellent, we better get going if we are going to have any hope of tracking it down."

The pair of you and your Pokemon climb back out of the vault and head down the tunnel once more, with Geddy keeping a close eye on the clawed ceiling. You're charging down the tunnel when all of a sudden Geddy comes to a stop, causing you all to put the breaks on. The Tynamo stares at the wall of the tunnel, the claw marks seemed to disappear! The last few seem to turn towards one of the walls, but then they simply stop. Suspecting something, Geddy charges at the wall. You go to stop him before he hurts himself, but the little eel passes straight through! He comes back out unharmed, it appears to be some sort of magical veil.

"Well would you look at that", grinned Harrison, "I don't think I've seen anything quite like that before. Squirtle, have a quick look inside and make sure the path is clear." The Squirtle nods before jogging through the fake wall. All is quiet for a moment, but then you hear a cry, followed by Harrison's Squirtle as it is sent flying back through into the main tunnel. A rock follows it, striking it in the chest, then a moment later another one strikes it. The Squirtle scrambles back to its feet, shouting and pointing through the wall.

"It seems something is guarding the other side, how should we go about this?"

Big nods in appreciation. "Right right, sorry, I do get ahead of myself sometimes." Big says with a slight chuckle. "Although if i was a trainer owned pokemon, wouldn't they have told it to take more than just the gems?" He shrugs. "Either way I'm more than happy to come help." He nods and they follow Geddy back into the cave system. They continue on until the claw marks come to an abrupt halt at what seems to be a dead end wall. "Huh, weird." Big says before Geddy slips into what seems to be an illusory wall. "Even weirder eh." Geddy says as Harrison sends the squirtle in to check it out. The water pokemon is soon blasted back by a couple of rocks. "Woah!" Big steps to the side to avoid getting hit as well. When the officer asks what to do Big rubs his chin. "Not much to do but head in there. Maybe if ou have squirtle use something like Withdraw and he can head in first, with my pokemon and us following to back 'im up." Big suggests. "Plus if it us a rock pokemon that threw those rocks," He points to where they lay on the ground after hitting squirtle. "You guys will have the best shot at it." He explains.

Hotstuff looks up at Geddy as they examine the wall. "What do you think the deal with that is?" He asks poking at the wall. "I dunno eh, I think either magic or a psychic pokemon." "Hey! Be ready guys!" Big calls to the two pokemon, and they jump to readiness.

Raves- As you regain your normal composure, you rattle off what you had learned during your encounter at the bar. Jake absorbs its all, tying in all the information you gathered in order to try and plan the next step. You are left in silence for a minute as he considers the options.

"I guess we might as well stay on the case while it's hot. If they are abusing and torturing Pokemon then we need to put a stop to it immediately. There is an entrance to the catacombs that we keep sectioned off around the corner, they can be useful when you need them, as long as you don't get lost!" Jake gives you a reassuring nod, "you did well, much better intel than what I got, just try not to sample anymore contraband? Alright let's head down into the catacombs and see if we can find a way into their operation.

Jake leads you to what appears to be an unmanned donut stand. He leads you inside, only to open a trapdoor that leads down into the catacombs. He kicks a rope down through the trapdoor and slides down, waiting patiently Bel and yourself to follow. Once the pair of you make it down, he heads off through the narrow tunnels, pulling out a heavy ended flashlight to light the way. You weave your way back through the passages, hoping your heading in the right direction. Just when you get the feeling that you're going around in circles, you all come to a stop as you hear voices nearby. Jake turns off the flashlight and you both peak around the next bend in the tunnel.

A pair of armed guards are standing in front of an old wooden door. The pair seem pretty chummy and are too busy bantering to notice much else. Nethertheless, there was no way of getting through the door with those two there. "We need to clear them off if we have any chance of getting inside. I know the tunnels well enough that I could probably lead them off and lose them before doubling back, that is if you think you could handle whatever is on the other side of that door? Although if you have a better plan, I'm open to suggestions."


Biggggg5- With an unknown assailant on the other side of the magical barrier, you suggest caution if you were going to make your way through. Harrison agrees, turning to his Squirtle and helping it back to its feet. "Sorry about that old chum, seems you walked straight into trouble. Our friend has the right idea though, how about you Withdraw into your shell and Gyro Ball straight back into it? I figure if it used a Rock type move, it is most likely a Rock Type right?" The Squirtle nods, confirming the Pokemon it encountered was indeed a Rock type. "Excellent", let's get in there then.

Harrison's Squirtle withdraws completely into its shell, it would be safer in there and stand a better chance against whatever was waiting for you on the other side of the wall. The shell soon begins to spin, quickly picking up speed as it becomes coated in steel energy and shoots through the mysterious wall. Harrison charges through after it, quickly followed by yourself, Hotstuff and Geddy.

You get a tingling feeling as you pass through the magical wall, arriving just in time to see Harrison's Squirtle connect with the Pokemon that had attacked it. You're shocked to see a Gigalith at the far end of the tunnel, an old wooden door seems to be positioned directly behind it. As the Squirtle slams into the compressed Pokemon, you notice that something is drastically wrong with it. The normally vibrant red crystals that sprout from a Gigalith's body are broken and crushed. Instead of red, the crystals seems to be an eerie mixture of black and purple. The Rock type roars as it notices the intruders, its seems remarkably angry.

With orders given to the squirtle, Big and company follow through past the fake wall. "Woah." Big says as soon as he sees the Gigalith. "It looks... Hurt, or sick or something." He says softly when it roars at them. "I don't think that's gonna stop it from messing us up eh." Geddy says.Big starts, "Wait, you actually say 'eh'?" Geddy looks back. "You can understand me now?" "Now's not the time bud." Big calls back. He glances around thr room. "Ok, Gigalith is a single rock type so Hotstuff be careful of its attacks." The charmander nods, and brings up his dukes, already anticipating Big's orders. "Officer, if you could keep it distracted with Geddy Hotstuff has a good wallup for it." He looks over to Geddy. "You start us off with a charge beam and then follow up with Flash cannon, ok?" Geddy nods, "I'll get ready for more too." Geddy says and begins charging with electricity sounding similar to an electric guitar. "Keep that up too, make youself nice and distracting." Big turns to Hotstuff. "You already know your fire isn't going to help us much here." Hotstuff rolls his eyes again. "Yeah I know. But you taught me those other moves for a reason right?" Big nods back. "Right, while the other two have it distracted I want you to smack it with a Focus Punch. I don't think it will work mor than once so then I want you to back up with a Hidden Power." Hotstuff nods and begins to charge energy into his fist.

Biggggg5- With the enemy identified, you reluctantly decide that it has to be dealt so that you can continue searching for the Sableye. "Nice strategy", notes Harrison, "we'll help keep it distracted. Squirtle catch its attention with a Bubblebeam then try a Water Pulse." The Squirtle takes a deep breath before exhaling a barrage of glistening bubbles that stream out in front of it as it charges towards the Rock type. Geddy joins in, firing a Charge Beam at the Gigalith, gaining a boost in the process. The two attacks collide on the Gigalith at the same time, causing it to roar in both pain and anger. Hotstuff takes the opportunity to start skirting the edge of the tunnel, hoping to stay out of the line of fire as he gathers a large mass of energy around his right claw. The Gigalith doesn't take long to retaliate, sending a barrage of boulders sliding through the tunnel. Thankfully Hotstuff isn't in the direct path of the boulders, however the same can't be said for Geddy and Harrison's Squirtle. The pair are smashed by the hard stones, crying out in pain as they are sent tumbling backwards. While the Gigalith recovers, Hotstuff strikes, having gotten in close just in time. He swings a powerful punch into one of the Gigalith's legs, all of the energy he focused into the attack results in a devastating blow.

Back on the offensive, the Squirtle hurls a Water Pulse at the Gigalith, but not in time to stop it from retaliating against Hotstuff. The dark crystal in front of Hotstuff glows before promptly erupting, the powerful blow from the gem sends him skidding back down the tunnel. The Squirtle's Water Pulse bursts over the Gigalith, the Super Effective blow pains the Rock type but unfortunately doesn't confuse it. Geddy follows with an even stronger Super Effective hit, landing a boosted Flash Cannon that leaves the compressed Pokemon moaning in pain. For this the Gigalith targets him individually, sending a sharped stone whistling towards him. The stone seems to be on a strange flight path, arcing up off the ground. Before you realize the Gigalith's intention it is too late, the stone strikes from above, smacking Geddy into the ground. The Tynamo tries to rise of the ground, but seems to be struggling to do so as he is left slivering along the ground. Hotstuff jumps in to defend his flailing friend, releasing a Hidden Power as orbs of Water energy pepper the Gigalith. It seems to be weakening, but a fully evolved Rock type like Gigalith was going to have plenty of fight in it.
