Eon chuckled as Cayenne speculated about needing some paint and glitter to become a Shiny. "I don't think that's how it works," she smirked. "Normally you gotta hatch Shiny in the first place. I heard there's some kinda spray that can turn Pokémon Shiny, but it's supposed to be crazy hard to find."

Keith and Eon, meanwhile, were indeed following Robin, as she saw for herself when she turned around at the stairs.

~~~

As the Jolteon and Shiny Mareanie swam, the former explained to the latter that Robin already did have some Water-types, but they were all missing. "Oh, I-I'm sorry to hear that," murmured Aster. "I hope they come back soon. I-I'd like to meet them."

~~~

A few minutes into the cleaning, Anion found Tessa approaching, looking worried. The Cosplay Pikachu apologized if she had offended the Minun at some point. Anion chuckled and shook her head. "Nah, no need to worry, Tessa. I'm pretty hard to offend," grinned Anion. "And trust me, if you offended me,I wouldn't have left you in any doubt. I'm generally not subtle like that. I got something to say to someone, I say it. And I say you're alright," she added, grinning at the Cosplay Pikachu. "Why'd you think we might've abandoned you, though?" she added. "Anyone ever done something that shitty to you before?"

Confirming that Keith and Eon were following, Robin began to make her way down the first flight of stairs, and then the second.
During all this, Cayenne made sure to keep up with Eon, in order to continue their conversation.

"What? Really?" Cayenne questioned, looking somewhat disappointed as the Eevee pup explained just how one became shiny.
This didn't last for long though, for a moment later an idea sprang into the Fire type's mind, allowing him to forget his prior disappointment.

"Well I guess I'll have to find that spray then! I know it might take bit, but that's ok. It's not like I'm in too much of a rush anyway!" The Torchic exclaimed.

"Alright, we're here." Robin said a moment later as the group entered a rather expansive room. Directly facing them was a large battlefield, with several couches lining one of the walls.
On either side of the room was an elevated platform, where each trainer was supposed to stand.

"W-what do you think? Pretty cool?" Robin asked, turning to her friend for his opinion.
----
"I-I hope they'll be back soon as well." Hazel replied to Aster.

"They're all tough Pokemon...so they should be ok. I-I still can't help but worry about them though..."
----
In response to Tessa's worries, Anion explained that she was hard to offend. Not only that, the Minun would have made it clear if she had been offended for whatever reason.
Anion then went on to ask why Tessa thought she might have been abandoned. If anyone had done that to the Cosplay Pikachu.

"Umm...not exactly." Tessa replied.

"It's just uh...it wouldn't exactly surprise me if someone umm...would do that sort of thing." The Electric type continued. "It's not like I wouldn't deserve it."

"Cool," grinned Eon as Cayenne declared his intention to find himself some Shiny Spray. "I don't even know how you'd look as a Shiny, but I bet it'd look awesome."

And soon afterwards, Robin had led them to a vast, expansive Battle Room. The battlefield was huge, complete with elevated platforms for the Trainers to stand upon. There were couches lining one of the walls as well, likely for the benefit of any spectators. Keith grinned- it reminded him quite a bit of the Battle Room in his own place, though the battlefield was done up a bit differently. And once asked by Robin what he thought, Keith nodded his approval. "Very cool," he responded. "I like the elevated Trainer platforms, that's a nice touch."

"Yo! This is awesome!" Eon exclaimed, racing out onto the battlefield. "This makes our Battle Room look like garbage! C'mon, let's get this party started!" she exclaimed. Keith chuckled, smiling at the Shiny Eevee, needing no translation to know what she was saying here.

~~~

"W-well, if they're that tough, th-then they'll definitely be OK," Aster said, trying to encourage her friend. "I-I could maybe ask some of m-my teammates to help try to find them," she offered.

~~~

Anion looked rather skeptical as Tessa voiced the opinion that she would deserve having her friends ditch her. "That's a load of crap," stated the Minun. "You don't deserve anyone ditching you. Nobody does. What even makes you think that kind of thing?" she asked.

"Thanks." Robin smiled in response.

"T-this room was pretty messy when I first moved here. It took quite awhile to fix it up. S-so I'm glad you like it." She added, before glancing at Eon.

"I guess we should probably get started. I-I'll take this side." Robin said, gesturing to the stand on the far end of the room.

"It looks like we're about to start! Best of luck out there!" Cayenne chirped, before leaving Eon's side and heading off in his trainer's direction.
But after a moment, the Torchic stopped, before glancing towards the various couches in the room. He was hoping to see Millicent there. The Timburr had agreed to watch him battle, after all.
----
"Really? They'd do that?" Hazel asked, his eyes widening at Aster's offer.
"That'd be great. I mean..i-if it isn't too much trouble..."
----
"What makes me think I deserve that?" Tessa repeated, sounding slightly confused.

"Umm...I hear it everywhere. From people and Pokemon I don't uhh...don't even know. Or those that I do. Even from the TV." The Cosplay Pikachu explained.

"All sorts of nasty things. Things that tell my that I uhh...I should be abandoned. It umm...kind of hurts..but I'm used to it."

"Hard to believe it used to be messy- you did a good job on this, then, for sure," Keith nodded. As Robin went over to the far side of the room, Keith made his way to the other side. Eon, needing no prompting whatsoever, dashed out onto the battlefield, looking ready to go.

Cayenne would not have to look for very long. If he glanced at the couches, he would see Millicent seated on one of them, with Willow propped up beside her. Millicent managed a small smile and a thumbs-up in Cayenne's direction as she saw him looking.

Once both Trainers and their Pokémon were all set, Keith grinned. "Good luck, Robin, Cayenne," he called. "Now let's get this party started! Alright, Eon, Tackle, go!" he ordered.

"Oooeeee!" squealed Eon, charging forward towards the Torchic.

~~~

"I-I'm sure they'd be happy to," said Aster. "M-my teammates a-are always happy to- to help others."

~~~

Anion's mouth fell open as Tessa explained that she seemed to hear these sorts of terrible things from literally everywhere. From total strangers, from people and Pokémon she knew, even from the TV. The Minun, at a momentary loss for words, did the only thing she could think to do- she walked up and hugged Tessa.

"They're wrong and they're stupid for saying things like that," said Anion. "Look, Tessa, anyone who tells you hurtful crap like that ain't even worth your time to listen to." She gave Tessa a friendly smile. "Don't even pay attention to anyone telling you those kinds of things, alright?" she said. "In fact, next time someone tells you something like that, tell them they're full of crap. Have a little more confidence in yourself, yeah?"

Upon reaching her platform, Robin stopped suddenly. Just the thought of another battle with Keith was getting her heart racing.
It had been quite some time since she had had a battle against Keith, and thoughts of her previous defeat weighed heavily in Robin's mind.

I just hope I don't make a fool of myself. The young woman thought as she lightly tugged at her shirt sleeve.

After a moment, Robin turned her attention to Cayenne, a sudden fire in her eyes.

"Y-you ready to go Cayenne?" She called to the Torchic.

"Of course!" The Fire type chirped. Cayenne managed to give Millicent one last glance, before giving his full attention to Eon, just as the Eevee began to charge towards him!

"Cayenne, intercept that Tackle with Ember!" Robin exclaimed.

With a nod, Cayenne began to concentrate, before spewing a series of small fireballs, which quickly flew off towards Eon!
----
"Really? That's nice to hear." Hazel replied, a smile on his face as he continued to tread water.

"I-I wish all of my teammates were like that. Some of them only really care about themselves though, o-or actively try and hurt others." The Jolteon continued, his smile replaced with a small frown.

"I wouldn't mind if I didn't see them again, if I'm being honest."
----
In response to Tessa's explanation, Anion went up and hugged the Cosplay Pikachu, causing Tessa's eyes to widen, and her face to flush.

Unsure of just what to say, the mouse Pokemon remained silent as Anion found her words. According to the Minun, anyone who told Tessa hurtful things like she had described weren't worth listening to.
Not only that, but Anion also suggested that Tessa have a little more confidence in herself, to call anyone out if they said those things to her in the future.

"More confidence...I umm...I'm not sure I can." Tessa murmured, her face still quite red.

"Besides...can all those people and Pokemon...can they umm..really all be wrong?"

The battle began! Cayenne was ready for Eon's Tackle attack, firing off a respectable Ember that would surely intercept the move... but Keith, too, was ready. "Now! Use Water Pulse!" he commanded.

"Ooooeeee!" squealed Eon, firing a sphere of water from her mouth at the Ember while still charging. Ideally, the Water Pulse would extinguish the Ember and allow the Tackle to land, though if it could manage some damage on the Fire-type as well, all the better.

~~~

Aster shuddered a bit as Hazel described some of his more unsavory teammates- the ones who either only cared about themselves, or actively tried to hurt others. "I... I don't blame you," murmured the Mareanie. "M-maybe they can change," she added. "K-Keith's Smeargle used to only th-think of herself, and... w-well, she still does think of herself a lot, but... but she's much better about h-how she treats others now."

~~~

Tessa's face flushed as red as an Electrode's ass as Anion hugged her, and once the Minun had finished speaking, Tessa spoke back up, doubting her capability for more confidence, and asking Anion if everyone who said such mean things about her could possibly all be wrong. "Damn right they can," Anion nodded. The hug had stopped by this point, though Anion still patted Tessa on the back reassuringly. "I mean, look at some of these evil teams humans make themselves part of. Team Aqua, they all believe the same load of crap, about- ugh- raising the sea level and flooding the world. A buncha people and Pokémon can all believe the same thing and still be wrong about it. And you can definitely have more confidence in yourself!" the Minun grinned. "Just give it a try sometime- believe in yourself, believe that you're actually worth something. You'll feel better about yourself, and self-confidence is something other people and Pokémon notice and respect."

It seemed that Keith was fully prepared for Cayenne's Ember attack. After receiving more orders, Eon fired a ball of water in front of herself.
Compared to Cayenne's Fire type attack, Eon's was much more powerful, and managed to effortlessly cut through the balls of fire heading her way!

With nothing standing in it's way, the sphere of water continued to fly through the air, before crashing right into Cayenne, knocking the Torchic off his feet.
After letting out a cry, the chick Pokemon attempted to get back on his feet, only to be sent flying as Eon slammed right into him!

"Cayenne..hang in there!" Robin called to the Fire Type. "Let's go with Bounce this time!"

"Right!" The chick Pokemon exclaimed.

With his feet glowing in a white energy, the Torchic leaped high into the air. It wouldn't be long before he came falling back down, right towards Eon.
----
"M-maybe they can....but I won't hold my breath." Hazel replied to Aster.

"One of them...is a really scary S-Shuppet. According to my trainer's Ambipom..he's been nothing but awful to everyone, and he's been on the team for over four years."

"I-I'm glad to hear that about your teammate though." The Jolteon added, a smile returning to his face.
----
Tessa blinked in surprise as Anion explained just how so many people could be wrong. Like Team Aqua, a group of humans that believed in raising the sea level and flooding the world.

"I umm..I see." Tessa murmured. She still wasn't exactly sure if she could have any more confidence...but maybe it was worth a try.

"Hey, is everything ok?" Voltaire questioned, causing Tessa to spin around.

"Voltaire! Oh umm...it's uh....it's nothing." The Cosplay Pikachu replied, before glancing at Anion.

"Umm...right Anion?"

The battle was off to a strong start- not only did Water Pulse extinguish the Ember and even damage Cayenne as well, but Eon was able to land her Tackle attack as well!

Their next move, a Bounce attack. Keith watched, eyeing the Torchic as he sprang up into the air. "Alright, Eon, get ready!" Keith advised the Shiny Eevee. "Fight back with Zen Headbutt!"

"Vee!" nodded Eon. Her forehead started glowing as she readied the Psychic move, ready to have that collide with the Bounce attack as Cayenne descended.

~~~

Aster smiled back at Hazel's kind words, though thought back to what else the Jolteon had just said. "M-my Trainer knows a lot about Shuppet," she said. "He- he says that all Shuppet h-have a major grudge of some sort, fr-from their past lives, th-that got them to come back as Sh-Shuppet in the first place. And- and that s-sometimes Sh-Shuppet or B-Banette c-can appear mean on the outside, wh-while really having a g-good heart inside. One of m-my teammates is like that, kinda- Myrtle, sh-she's a Banette, and sh-she seems rude usually, b-but she's m-much nicer th-than she seems at first. A-and Keith says that sh-she's not the only one of her kind like that, either... m-maybe this Shuppet t-teammate of yours, m-maybe there's more to him th-than any of you know?" she suggested, sounding uncertain herself.

~~~

Soon after Anion's talk with Tessa, Voltaire was there behind them, asking if everything was OK. Tessa wheeled around, stating that nothing was wrong, before asking Anion to back her up on this. And the Minun nodded. "Yeah, everything's fine," smiled Anion. "Why don't we all finish cleaning this up, yeah?" she suggested.

Much like before, Eon had an answer To Cayenne's incoming attack, this time in the form of a Zen Headbutt!
Moving much too fast to change directions, all the Torchic could do was continue his descent towards Eon, the Eevee pup's head now glowing with psychic energy.

Upon reaching his destination, Cayenne let out a pained cry before tumbling backwards onto the clay floor. It seemed that Eon's attack had been strong enough to overpower the poor Torchic!
But Cayenne remained as determined as ever, and quickly sprang back up onto his feet. Now all he had to do was wait for his trainer's orders.

Robin meanwhile, watched on with a worried expression. It seemed whatever attack was thrown at Eon, the shiny Eevee managed to intercept it with little issue.
If they had any hopes of winning, they'd have to wait for an opening, the Electric type specialist realized. With this in mind, Robin simply waited. She could only hope that Cayenne would be able to take advantage of whatever orders Eon received next.
----
"More to him then I know?" Hazel repeated Aster's words with a rather skeptical look.

"I-I'm not so sure. I mean, he's a Ghost type. G-ghost type's are almost always evil." The Jolteon explained as he continued to stay afloat. "I-I wouldn't even trust this M-myrtle if I were you. She could just be waiting...waiting to hurt you or your teammates!"
----
"That sounds good to me." Voltaire smiled in response to Anion's suggestion. Despite this, the Emolga wasn't all too convinced that nothing had really happened.
After all, he had seen the pair of Electric types hugging..at least, he was pretty sure. Though he knew better then to call Anion or Tessa out on it...the Emolga had to admit he was rather curious.

"Don't be afraid to say if anything is up though. I don't mind lending an ear." The sky squirrel Pokemon added, not having quite moved on from the idea.

"Umm...alright. But uhh...we should probably continue cleaning. Like umm..Anion said." Tessa replied, her focus soon returning to the scattered glass nearby.

Zen Headbutt met Bounce, and the former overpowered the latter. Robin wasn't giving any orders at the moment, likely waiting to see what Keith would do, see if she could turn the tables by calling a suitable counterattack. This could work against Keith, but it might not. Either way, there was only one way for Keith to find out for sure, and that was to continue the battle! "Eon, now use Gunk Shot!" he ordered.

"Oooeee... VEE!" exclaimed Eon as she charged up and let loose the powerful Poison move. Whether it would work or not was anyone's guess at this point- it wasn't the trickiest of moves to dodge, and for all Keith knew, Robin and Cayenne could turn out to have the perfect way to counter this move.

~~~

Not only was Hazel skeptical of Aster's theory, but he seemed distrustful of Ghost-types in general, stating that they were almost always evil, something that genuinely surprised Aster to hear. Moreover, Hazel advised Aster against trusting Myrtle. The Shiny Mareanie shook her head. "N-no, that's not true," she said. "N-Not all Ghost-types are evil. I- I'm sorry if the ones y-you've seen are evil, b-but I've never met one th-that was evil, n-not once! A-and it's not just Myrtle, either. K-Keith has another B-Banette, who really is nice. Sh-she was Keith's sister wh-when she was alive. A-And there's P-Peeves, and Liliana, a-and Chuck- th-they're all really nice!"

~~~

"We'll keep that in mind," nodded Anion, before resuming helping with the cleaning.

In the absence of Robin's orders, Keith decided to call out Eon's next move. Unfortunately for Robin though, Gunk Shot wasn't something that Cayenne could easily counter.
With what little time she had to think, nothing the Torchic could do to stop the attack came to mind. There was only one option left.

"Cayenne, dodge it and charge towards Eon!" Robin ordered.

Nodding in response, Cayenne prepared himself for the oncoming Poison attack that his opponent had just fired off! As the glob of slimy garbage came flying his way, the Torchic attempted to dart to his right.
But while Cayenne was fast, the Fire type didn't seem to be fast enough, and Eon's Gunk Shot managed to land an indirect hit!

Despite this, Cayenne muscled on and began to charge towards Eon. The Torchic didn't quite why he was doing so, but that didn't stop him from giving it his all!

"A-alright, now use Scratch!" Robin called out to the chick Pokemon.

"Ok!" Cayenne exclaimed as he continued to race towards his opponent, the Torchic showing no signs of stopping.
----
"You're wrong!" Hazel insisted, ignoring everything that Aster had to say. "I-if you haven't met an evil Ghost type...then you haven't been paying attention. T-the only thing they do is hurt and deceive others, it's all they know."
----
With all three Pokemon getting back to sweeping, the large amount of glass shards slowly began to dwindle. After a couple of minutes, the mess had entirely vanished!

"I think that's the last of them." Voltaire smiled happily. It had almost felt like he'd been sweeping for months, so the Emolga was more then a little glad to find that they were finally finished.

"Yes...I umm...think so too." Tessa nodded in agreement. "I'm just uh...glad I didn't make any more mistakes."

"You were fine." Voltaire replied, before glancing around the kitchen. "Now then....where are we going to put this glass?"

"Oh umm...right over there." Tessa said, pointing to a small orange bin, not too far from the refrigerator. "Cayenne decided to put that there after uh...last time."

Cayenne made a fine attempt to dodge the Gunk Shot. Not an especially successful attempt, but the Torchic still took much less damage from the attack than he could've, and now, he was charging in for a Scratch attack. "Eon, use Tackle!" Keith ordered, though even as he spoke, Cayenne was able to get in the Scratch. Eon, nevertheless, charged forward to try and Tackle Cayenne after taking the damage.

~~~

Aster shook her head. "No, no, no!" she exclaimed. "I- I know friendly Ghost-types! I- I'm telling you, th-they're not all bad!" There were tears in the Shiny Mareanie's eyes. "Y-You don't know th-the ones I know..." She sniveled for a moment before speaking up again. "...Th-they were all s-something else wh-when they were alive. O-One of them w-was even human... Wh-What if I d-die and c-come back as a Gh-Ghost-type?" she asked Hazel. "W-Would you think I'm evil, too?"

~~~

After what certainly felt like months of sweeping, the sea of glass shards had vanished completely. Anion nodded in agreement as Voltaire reassured Tessa that she was fine, and as the Cosplay Pikachu pointed out the orange garbage can near the fridge, the Minun was the first one over there, disposing of her share of the glass. "Keith doesn't have one of these in his kitchen," the Minun remarked. "Then again, though, he's got a Swalot, which is basically the next best thing."

With how fast Cayenne was going, Eon didn't have enough time to react, allowing the Torchic to land the Scratch attack, before quickly retreating to safety!

There was no time to celebrate though, for now it was Eon's turn to attack. And with the Eevee pup fast approaching, Robin was going to have to come up with an order, and quick!

"Hidden Power!" Robin barked, hoping her words would reach her Pokemon in time.

Fortunately, Cayenne managed to receive his orders loud and clear, and was already starting to draw fourth an energy hidden deep within himself. But even with his speed, would the Torchic be able to stop Eon in time?
----
Hazel waited patiently for Aster to finish her explanation. But as the Jolteon continued to listen to the Mareanie, his face began to show just how confused he actually was.

"What? No! T-that's different!" Hazel began, first addressing Aster's question. "You're not like them. At least..I-I don't think." The Jolteon continued, giving the Poison type in front of him a rather cautious glance.
"I mean...your teammates, I'm sure they're lying. That's what Ghost types do best after all. If you were to die and come back as a Ghost type...I'm sure you'd be able to fight the urge to harm others. At least...I hope you would."
----
Upon being shown the orange bin, Anion mentioned that Keith didn't have something like it in his kitchen. The Minun then added that her trainer had a Swalot, which according to her, was the next best thing.

"The next best thing?" Voltaire repeated, sounding slightly confused. "Why is that?"

"Oh..I umm..I think I know." Tessa spoke up, pausing briefly to drop her glass into the bin.

"A Swalot...uh...that's a Pokemon that can eat anything right? So I guess it just umm...eats all the glass."

"Wow, really? That's pretty neat." Voltaire smiled. "So Anion...this Swalot teammate of yours...he just eats stuff like that? I can't imagine it would taste that good."

Eon charged in for Tackle, but Robin's order for Hidden Power was delivered with great timing. The Torchic fired the electrified energy right at the Shiny Eevee, and though it didn't stop Eon, as she'd built up that much momentum at that point, it did slow her down in addition to the damage it dealt. Having lost some momentum from this, Eon's Tackle was not delivered at maximum power.

"Eon!" Keith exclaimed. The battle was getting intense, with Robin and Cayenne recovering very nicely from their rocky start. "Can you still battle?" he asked.

"Vee!" nodded Eon.

"Then let's show them what we got!" Keith declared. "Eon, let's go!" As he spoke, he started moving his arms. A purple flash emanated from the Poisonium Z set into his Z-Ring.

"Ooeeevee!" squealed Eon, grinning in anticipation of what was about to happen.

"Our minds, our spirits, linked as one!" Keith said as he moved. "A power as intense as the Plague Swamp of Cascadia! Feel the poison- BE the poison!"

As Keith finished up the set of poses that the Poisonium Z demanded, Eon stood at the ready, feeling the Z-Power flow into her, feeling it powering her up, a power that would make her mother exceptionally proud, a power that took Eon's Gunk Shot and souped it up, turned it into something far stronger.

"Let's do it!" Keith exclaimed. "Use Acid Downpour!!!"


Code:
  
Eon surrounded itself with its Z-Power!

Eon unleashes its full-force Z-Move!

...



Acid Downpour

Hazel protested at Aster's question, stating that he didn't think Aster was like the evil Ghost-types, and that he was sure that if she came back as a Ghost-type, she'd be one of the nice ones. "I... I'm glad you think that," Aster replied, with a small yet genuine smile. "B-but, that's just it. I- I'm not the only one wh-who wouldn't let b-being a Ghost-type t-turn me evil. I... I know there's bad ones," she murmured. "B-But I know there's good ones out there, too. Good ones, wh-who've had s-so many opportunities to- to do bad things, and instead always chose to do wh-what's right. One of them, sh-she actually runs a Pokémon Center n-near Keith's S-Secret Base, a-and she's helped lots of sick and injured Pokémon. Th-they can be j-just as different as any other type of Pokémon can. L-Like, you're really nice, b-but I know there are b-bad Electric-types out there, too."

~~~

Voltaire questioned why a Swalot was the next best thing to a garbage can, but before Anion could answer, Tessa spoke up, explaining that Swalot can eat anything. Anion nodded. "Tessa's exactly right," she confirmed. "Yeah, he can and will eat anything. Dunno how he likes the taste of half the stuff he eats, honestly. But then, everyone's got different tastes," she shrugged. "You learn that pretty quick on a team full of Poison-types. Keith was once hired to clean up all the garbage at a park, so he brought his Weezing, Muk, Garbodor, and Swalot with him, and the four of them just ate all the garbage there. Well, five of them- we count the Weezing and his second head separately. Not all Poison-types eat garbage, though. Ivysaur are Poison-types, and Keith's Ivysaur loves Watmel Berries. Or anything sweet-tasting, really."

While the start of the battle hadn't exactly been going in their favor, Robin couldn't help but grin at just how quickly things had turned around. So long as Cayenne kept up the pressure, they had a good chance of winning!

But alas, things couldn't be quite that simple, for Keith seemed to have another trick up his sleeve. With a purple light emanating from the ring on the man's wrist, Keith began to strike several different poses, all while he began some sort of speech. Keith was preparing to use a Z-Move!
Though she didn't have the ability to perform one of her own at that moment, this definitely wasn't Robin's first experience with said technique. The result...was a move of devastating power, one that Cayenne couldn't hope to counter.

"Cayenne! Brace yourself!" Robin called out to the Fire type. While it definitely wasn't the smartest thing to do in the face of a Z-Move, Cayenne had no other options.

The Torchic seemed to realize this too, for he gave his trainer a quick nod, before closing his eyes in preparation for the oncoming attack.

A few moments later, and Keith called out for Eon to use the Z-Move Acid Downpour! But while Robin had seen a Z-Move or two during her time as a trainer, nothing prepared her for what was to happen next.

A poisonous energy began to swirl around Eon, eventually transforming the surrounding area into a large toxic swamp! Soon after purple clouds began to form above the Torchic, unleashing a heavily poisonous substance upon the Fire type, causing him to let out a shrill cry as the swamp and rain reacted together, sending wave after wave of pain throughout his body!

Once the attack had finally subsided, Cayenne was left panting rather heavily, though he still managed to keep his footing.

"Cayenne, are you ok?" Robin asked, though she already knew the answer. Just from watching the Torchic, she knew that he wouldn't be able to last much longer.

"I'm....fine...never..been better!" The Fire type insisted as a small orange glow began to surround him. It was now Cayenne's turn to grin...at least as best as a Torchic could. The chick Pokemon had a good reason to do so...for his Blaze ability had just kicked in!
Though the odds were stacked against him, Cayenne didn't intend to go down without a fight.

"A-alright then. Cayenne, use Ember, then go for a Scratch!"
----
"B-but..." Hazel began, trying his best to come up with a response to Aster. But try as he might, the Jolteon simply couldn't find the words. Anger, sadness, confusion...all sorts of emotions started to display on Hazel's face as he desperately tried to come up with something...anything he could use to prove Aster wrong.

"You.....you just don't get it, ok?!" Hazel exclaimed, finally finding the courage to speak his mind.

"If you're not going to listen to the truth....t-then just stop talking to me!" The Jolteon continued to shout as he swam to the pool's edge. It seemed as if Hazel was ready to leave at any moment.
----
"He's willing to eat anything?" Voltaire questioned, before dumping his pile of glass into the disposal bin. "Wow, sounds like one of my teammates. Well, almost. I doubt he'd eat any kind of garbage."

The Emolga then began to nod along as Anion started to explain some of her teammates taste in food. It seemed even Poison types had preferences when it came to what they ate.

"That's really cool." Voltaire smiled, once Anion had finished speaking. But while the topic did interest him slightly, Voltaire now had other things on his mind. With all the talk about eating, the Emolga couldn't help but remember what he and Anion had originally come to to the kitchen for.
"Say Tessa...I know you and Cayenne were planning to whip something up for everyone, so I was wondering....when do we get to try it?" Voltaire asked.

"Huh? Oh umm...it's all done." The Cosplay Pikachu smiled. "It should uh...be right upstairs. with everyone."

"Perfect." Voltaire said, grinning as he turned his attention to Anion.
"Well then....shall we?" The Emolga asked, gesturing to the warp panel nearby.

In the face of a Z-Move, what could Robin do but advise Cayenne to brace himself? No amount of dodging ever did any good, and even Protect would only partially block a Z-Move, and that was assuming Cayenne even knew that move. Keith supposed that if Cayenne had tried Bounce there may have been a chance of jumping over the Z-Move, but he couldn't blame Robin for not taking that risk.

However, as the Acid Downpour concluded, the Torchic was still able to battle! And not only that, Keith's mouth fell open as he saw the orange glow. "Is that-" he began.

"Torchic's special Ability- Blaze," Keith's Pokédex spoke up. "When low on health, Torchic's Fire-type moves become more powerful."

Indeed, almost before the Pokédex finished explaining, Robin had already capitalized on this development, ordering Cayenne to use Ember. "Eon, Water Pul-" Keith began, but this time, his words came too late, and the Ember attack hit! Eon was sent tumbling backwards by the souped-up Fire move, and though she regained her footing rather quickly, the Torchic was coming in fast for a Scratch! This battle was nearing its conclusion, and right now, it could go either way. "Use Mega Kick!" Keith ordered, and whether this order came in time to make any sort of difference or not, they were all about to find out.

~~~

Hazel seemed at a loss for words, before blurting out that Aster just didn't get it, before swimming towards the edge of the pool, clearly intent on leaving.

"W-wait!" Aster exclaimed, swimming after the Jolteon. "Hazel, I... wh-what do you mean, I don't get it? P-please... j-just tell me, OK? D-did something happen to you b-because of an evil Ghost-type?"

~~~

The current subject matter seemed to be reminding Voltaire of just why they went to the kitchen to begin with, and he spoke up, asking Tessa when they got to try what she and Cayenne had been planning to make. The Cosplay Pikachu was happy to report that it was already done and upstairs.

At this, Voltaire turned to Anion, a grin on his face as he gestured to the nearby warp panel. Anion, likewise, grinned as she looked at her fellow Pikaclone. "Hell, yeah. Let's go," she replied, grabbing onto Voltaire's hand, though she turned back to the Cosplay Pikachu. "Wanna come with, Tessa?" asked Anion, not wanting the Cosplay Pikachu to feel left out.

His orders received, Cayenne was quick to exhale several small fireballs from his beak, which few through the air and out towards Eon.
The incoming fire attack was so fast in fact, that Keith wasn't even able to get in an order before the embers reached Eon, causing the Eevee to be sent tumbling backwards!

But Cayenne wasn't done just yet. Seizing the opportunity to attack again, the Torchic sprinted towards his opponent as fast as he possibly could, ready to deliver a powerful scratch attack to Eon!

This time though, Keith was able to give his orders to Eon. Mega Kick. Between that and Scratch, there was no competition on which attack was more powerful. If Cayenne didn't strike Eon first, it was all over!
The chick Pokemon must have realized this, for he didn't hesitate for even a moment as he continued his charge towards the shiny Eevee pup, the distance between the two growing ever smaller.

But despite Cayenne's impressive speed, Eon was already prepared for the Torchic's arrival. His reward for reaching the Eevee? A powerful kick to the face, one that sent him flying into the air!

"Cayenne!" Robin called out as the Torchic descended, the hard clay floor breaking his fall. After a few seconds with no response, it was clear that Cayenne was too tired to continue.

Retrieving the Torchic's ball from her bag, Robin pointed the red and white sphere towards Cayenne, before pressing the button in the center. Immediately a red beam of light shot out of the Pokeball, absorbing the fallen Torchic inside.

"Good match." The Electric type trainer smiled as she walked off her battle platform, and towards Keith's side of the field. "I-if Eon needs to heal up, I've got a healing station over there." She added, gesturing to the device in the corner of the room.
----
Though he was just about to hop out of the pool, Hazel stopped himself as Aster called out to him. It seemed the Mareanie wanted to know what the Jolteon was talking about. If something had happened to him because of an evil Ghost type.

"W-what? No. D-don't be silly." Hazel replied, turning his attention back towards Aster.

"B-but just because something hasn't happened yet...d-doesn't mean it won't. If I'm not prepared...then they will do something. I-I know it."
----
Voltaire blushed as Anion took his hand, and was about to leave with the Minun, but stopped once the cheering Pokemon turned back to Tessa, asking if the Cosplay Pikachu wanted to join them.

"W-what?" Tessa stammered, clearly caught off guard by Anion's offer. "I umm....sure. I'd love to. If I uhh...won't be a bother anyway."

"You won't be." Voltaire said, shaking his head. "Besides, I'm sure you're hungry too after all that work."

"Oh I umm....yeah maybe a little. Thank you." Tessa smiled, both at Anion and Voltaire.

The battle was nearing its climax, with Cayenne charging in for a Scratch. Eon was ready to retaliate with Mega Kick. Easily stronger than Scratch, but if Cayenne was able to land the Scratch first, Eon might not even get the chance to strike back! It was close indeed, and Keith was holding his breath in the final moments of the battle, but Eon was able to land a picture-perfect Mega Kick! She sent Cayenne flying, and knocked the Torchic clean out.

"Way to go, Eon!" Keith grinned, happy to see the Shiny Eevee jumping around happily at the outcome of the battle. He smiled back at Robin as she congratulated him on the battle. "Thanks, Robin," he said. "You and Cayenne were pretty good, too- that was really close near the end. I love battles like that." He nodded appreciatively as Robin offered the use of her healing station to heal Eon. "Thanks," he repeated, withdrawing Eon into her Premier Ball and heading over to the healing station to heal her up.

~~~

Aster listened as Hazel stated that nothing had happened to him yet due to an evil Ghost-type, but that that didn't mean nothing would happened, which was why he was intent on being prepared. "B-but... th-that's what I'm trying to figure out," said Aster. "Wh-why are you so certain s-something like that'll happen if G-Ghost-types haven't done anything to you so far? I... I'm sorry, I just... I don't get it."

~~~

Tessa clearly didn't expect to be included in this at all, having been caught off-guard by Anion's offer, though once she recovered from this, she stated she'd love to join them, provided she wouldn't be a bother. Voltaire was quick to reassure her that she wouldn't be. "What he said," she agreed with a grin. "It's no problem, Tessa. C'mon, then, let's get moving, huh?" she added, this time to both Electric-types.

Robin gave a small smile upon hearing Keith's words, before quickly following him over to the healing station. While she hadn't seen the battle as being nearly as close as her friend was letting on, it was good to hear from someone nonetheless.

"Hey umm....Keith..I have a question to ask." Robin murmured as she reached their destination.
"It's.....it's about your Z-Ring. I-I've never gotten the chance to ask anyone else but...do you s-see things when you use it? Like....visions?"
----
Hazel looked visibly annoyed as Aster continued to question his logic. The Jolteon didn't make an attempt to leave though, instead waiting for Aster to finish.
"I know you don't get it!" Hazel finally snapped at Aster. "I-it's no use explaining either. Whatever I say...you're just going to ignore. W-what's the point?"
----
Tessa nodded at Anion's words, making sure to leave her broom and dustpan before she began to follow the other two electric types.
As soon as the trio stepped foot onto the strange tile, they immediately appeared back inside the living room. Such was the magic of warp panels.

"Hmm....wonder where she went." Voltaire murmured as he glanced around the room, noticing his trainer's absence.
"Ummm...probably downstairs or something." Tessa suggested, giving the Emolga a small shrug.
"Not that it matters too much anyway." The Emolga smiled as he continued to scan the room, his eyes suddenly locking onto a plate of sandwiches.
"Alright then...lunch here we come!" Voltaire exclaimed as he started to guide Anion over to the nearby table. Tessa didn't waste anytime following along, happy to be receiving a much deserved break.

As they approached the healing station, Robin asked Keith about his Z-Ring, asking if he ever saw visions or anything when using it. Not a question Keith expected to hear, for sure. "No, can't say that I have," Keith shrugged. "Never even heard of such a thing happening before with the Z-Ring- though I'm far from an expert on Z-Moves, so not sure how much that counts for," he added with a slight chuckle. "Why do you ask?"

~~~

Aster looked down and teared up as Hazel still sounded annoyed, insisting that she was just gonna ignore whatever he'd say. "...I- I won't ignore what you're g-gonna say," she said quietly. "H-have I been d-doing that? I-I-I'm sorry," stammered the shy Shiny. "I- I don't m-mean to do th-that, b-but I just... I- I just... y-you ignored me," she squeaked, as though her own words terrified her. "I- I t-told you about m-my experience w-with Gh-Ghost-types, a-and a-all you d-did was m-make it s-seem like y-you think I-I'm a liar. I- I'm not a liar! I- I know I'm right! B-but that doesn't m-mean I'll i-ignore wh-what you have to say," she added. "Y-you gotta have a r-reason f-for thinking wh-what you think, s-so I w-wanna know w-what it is. I... I... F-Friends d-don't have to agree w-with each other a-about everything."

~~~

As the Electric-types arrived in the living room, they found it rather devoid of people and Pokémon. Not, however, devoid of sandwiches, a fact that everyone present was quick to notice and appreciate. "Aw, yeah," grinned Anion, following Voltaire over to the table. The Minun was quick to grab a sandwich and take a big bite. Through a mouthful of food she couldn't hope to articulate anything remotely recognizable as speech, though her eyes did light up as she took that bite, and her muffled mumbling sounded distinctly appreciative. Another clue for Tessa would be the way Anion turned to her, smiled as best she could with her mouth full of sandwich, and nodded.

"Oh...I see..." Robin murmured in response to Keith. Though the answer was somewhat expected, she couldn't help but feel slightly disappointed by it.

Of course, a question like that was sure to leave Keith with one of his own. Like why Robin had asked such a thing in the first place.

"Well you see...." The Electric type trainer began, before pausing briefly, as if she had lost her train of thought.
"D-did I ever tell you about my time in Ryuu Town? I...don't seem to remember if I did."
----
Hazel's expression quickly changed from an annoyed look to a worried one upon seeing Aster cry. Perhaps he had gotten a little carried away....

"Look..I-I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make you cry." The Jolteon said, rather quick to apologize. "It's just....I know I'm right. A-after all I've seen...you can't convince me otherwise."
As soon as the last of his words left his mouth, the Jolteon quickly glanced around the room, making sure that it was just the two of them.

"I-I'll try and explain the best I can. But....j-just no more tears, ok?"
----
Following Anion, Voltaire also made sure to grab an egg sandwich, before digging right in!
The only Pokemon not to grab a sandwich was Tessa, instead watching as the other two Electric types enjoyed their lunch.

"So how do you guys like it. Is it umm...pretty good?" The Cosplay Pikachu asked, looking slightly concerned.

"It's amazing." Voltaire replied quickly, before filling his mouth with another bite of lunch.

"Yay!" Tessa exclaimed, clapping her hands together. "I was so worried it wouldn't turn out. But I'm uhh...really glad it did."

Robin seemed a bit disappointed, although not altogether surprised, at Keith's response. She did, however, seem willing to explain what prompted her to ask this in the first place, though before getting into much of any sort of explanation, she asked Keith if she'd ever talked to him about her time in Ryuu Town, not remembering whether she'd done so or not.

Keith had to think about this. The name Ryuu Town rang a bell... a few minutes later, it came back to him. "...Yeah, you did talk a bit about that," he nodded. "Albus's party, back at my old Secret Base. You mentioned you'd gone there after that Electric-type tournament, you found that Lickitung you'd run into before, it was being accused of stealing the... Ebony Flute, it was called, right? And you cleared the Lickitung's name and caught it, and Dusty beat a giant Salamence," he nodded, recalling the gist of the story.

~~~

Aster started to calm down as Hazel apologized for making her cry. He insisted he was right, and as much as Aster disagreed, she stood by what she'd just said, that friends didn't have to agree about everything. Nevertheless, she hoped very dearly that she could someday change Hazel's mind about Ghost-types. She took a few deep, calming breaths, and though her eyes were still moist from her previous tears, there were no new tears coming to them. "OK," she nodded. "I... I think I'm OK now," she said, looking at Hazel, waiting patiently for him to explain his side of things.

~~~

Anion's verbal response to Tessa's question had to wait until the Minun had swallowed what was a considerable mouthful of delicious sandwich. "Mmm. Yeah, it tastes great," grinned the Minun once she'd swallowed her first bite. "You can have one if you're hungry, too, ya know," she added, gesturing to the plate before taking another sizable bite out of her sandwich.

Robin waited patiently for Keith's response, taking the time to place Cayenne's Pokeball in one of the slots in the healing machine. She wasn't in any real rush for an answer after all.
After a short while, Keith repeated back to Robin the basics of her time in Ryuu town. It seemed she had informed Keith of the story after all. But as the Poison-type trainer continued to talk, one thing caught Robin's attention.
Keith had referred to his base as "old". Was it a slip of the tongue, or had he moved since they had last spoken? Whatever it was, now wasn't the time to ask.

"That's right." Robin nodded, once Keith had finished speaking. "But....Dusty and I weren't able to do it by ourselves. W-we had help you see..."

The young woman paused for a moment, as if struggling to remember something.

"F-from what I remember, Ryuu Town was once saved from destruction by a trainer capable of using a Z-Ring. But when they left the town, their Z-Ring was kept with the people, in case they needed it again."
"The battle against the giant Salamence...we were losing badly, and so I had no choice but to use the Z-Ring for myself." Robin continued, pausing for only a second to glance at Keith's Z-Ring.

"I-It looked a bit different from yours though. This one...it had a strange orange glow surrounding it. When I put it on, I felt a strange energy radiating from it, and the knowledge on how to use it instantly appeared to me."
"But that's not all I saw." The young trainer shook her head. "Upon using it, I also saw...w-what I an only describe as images. Visions. Most flashed by too quickly for me to properly see them...but there were two of them that stuck out to me."

At this point, Robin's gaze had shifted from Keith, to Cayenne's Pokeball. Her face also seemed flushed, as if she was embarrassed to continue speaking.

"T-the first scene was of a picnic...on a bright and sunny day. There were two people there..and while I didn't understand what exactly was going on, they both seemed..so happy." Robin explained with the faintest of smiles.
"One of those people...they looked just like me. But..how I am now. The other person..."

Was Anna. The young woman finished, though only in her head.

"Well..seeing how happy they were....i-it made me realize back then just how unhappy I really was."
----
While Aster waited for Hazel to speak, the Jolteon seemed rather nervous, as if he was unsure of quite what to say.

"I..umm....well....you know what? J-just forget it. Forget I said anything. We can just....a-agree to disagree?"
----
Tessa smiled as Anion gestured to the sandwiches, stating that the Cosplay Pikachu could have one if she was hungry.

"Really? Thank you!" Tessa exclaimed, reaching for one of the smaller sandwiches.

With sandwich in hand, the Cosplay Pikachu took a cautious bite, her face lighting up instantly at the flavor.

"Mmm! It is really good!" The Electric type grinned, before stuffing her face with a much larger bite then before.

Voltaire nodded in response, unable to speak while still chewing his lunch.

Robin explained some more about what happened in Ryuu Town. The Z-Ring she'd used was one that had been once used to save the town from destruction, and the townspeople had kept it around in case of emergency. It also apparently looked different from Keith's Z-Ring, possessing a strange orange glow, and just putting it on gave Robin instant knowledge on how to use it. Moreover, as she used it, she saw pictures in her head. Lots of them, flashing by at high speeds, too fast for her to properly process most of them. But she did manage to get a proper look at two of them. She paused at this moment, glancing at Cayenne's Poké Ball, and blushing as if embarrassed. Keith said nothing, waiting patiently- he'd just kept her waiting for, like, a minute while he thought back to what she'd told him, after all.

Sure enough, Robin resumed speaking before long. The first image she saw in her head was of two people on a picnic on a bright and sunny day, and they both seemed very happy together. Indeed, just describing this, Keith noticed, was bringing a faint smile to Robin's face. And one of those people she saw was her. The way she was now, that is to say, which was not how she was at that time, Keith remembered. She made no effort to describe the other person, but stated that seeing how happy they were made her realize how unhappy she really was.

This got Keith thinking. Did this explain how unhappy Robin was when she showed up for Albus's party? It hadn't exactly gone unnoticed, and after the party, Helena had informed him that she'd been asked to try and find out what was bothering Robin by several concerned Pokémon.

"Well, it certainly sounds as though you're happy now," Keith said, with a small smile of his own. "But yeah- something was definitely different about that Z-Ring. I've had to learn the poses for the Z-Moves I use, and I've never had my Z-Ring show me visions. Sounds interesting, though. If one of the people you saw was in fact you, the way you are now... maybe it was a vision of the future," he suggested. "Do you know who the other person was?"

~~~

After a few moments, Hazel seemed to change his mind about explaining about his dislike for Ghost-types, instead asking Aster if they could just agree to disagree. "Uh... um... O-OK," the Shiny Mareanie reluctantly agreed. Much as she wanted to know the truth, she didn't want to force Hazel to talk about something he was clearly uncomfortable discussing. "Um... i-if you ch-change your mind, I... I'll be happy to- to listen to you," she added. "B-but only if y-you want to talk about it. I... I can agree t-to disagree," she smiled.

~~~

Tessa was happy to be invited to enjoy her own culinary creations, and even happier upon taking a bite of one of her sandwiches. Anion grinned at the Cosplay Pikachu's reaction. Once she'd finished her rather large mouthful of sandwich, the Minun spoke up. "Damn right," she agreed. "Sandwiches good." As though to drive home the point, Anion took another sizable bite of her sandwich, already eyeing up another one as she chewed.
