Jellicent Marion's Haunted Mini-Mansion

High above the Hidden Mansion, atop a weeping willow tree whose trunk has grown far taller than any you have ever seen, is a strange little tree-cottage, built as if lovingly handcrafted for a life-sized doll. The home has been painted a lovely mint green with a white trim, and despite its high access point and rather precarious placing, it appears to have been incredibly well-maintained. Really, it is a beautiful house (albeit not a terribly large one), yet something about it makes you inexplicably uneasy.

Putting those unreasonable thoughts aside, you come in for a closer look. You admire the decorated windowpanes and dark blooms peeking shyly out from the flowerboxes, and just as you are about to take a sniff to determine the odd little blossoms' fragrance, you notice... something in the window, a shadow moving behind the curtain. Is somebody home? You call out, but no one answers... Yet you feel as if you are being watched. Perhaps all those rumors of this part of Fizzytopia being haunted are getting to you.

Suddenly, a peal of wicked laughter bursts forth, but not from the cottage... To your horror, the sound seems to be coming from right behind you. The bone-chilling cackle is as clear as daylight, and yet, when you turn around... Nothing.

Dare you try your luck at the door? If you decided to flee, could you even outrun the invisible monsters that seem to have found you? The clock is ticking... I suggest you make your choice quickly. After all, if you are indecisive, you will soon find that she will make the decision for you.

Mailbox

It appears to be a normal, lavender mailbox with a painting of a Banette on the side. There's a rumor that, late at night, Marion's Mailbox takes on a life of its own, growing fangs sharp enough to bite of the hand off of any mailman who dares deliver mail at such a dangerous hour. In the darkest hours of night, the mailbox sways and groans, screams and stutters... It seems rather boring and stationary now, but a strange aura surrounding the otherwise ordinary-looking structure makes you think twice about depositing a message.

R.S.V.P

Marion's Birthday/X-mas/Get Well Soon Party!! :D

In the umbrage of the weeping willow tree, the young woman Coselle admires the Haunted Mansion grounds with a sly little grin on her face, taking long, leisurely puffs from a disposable hookah. As she sprawls her body out beneath the tree's shade, a blur of orange zooms around the tree, the sounds of a hyperactive motor whirring at top speed:

MOWINGMOWINGMOWINGWHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! In a surprisingly short amount of time, the odd creature seems to have mowed the entire Hidden Mansion territory pristinely, without a single strand of grass uncut. Stopping short in front of Coselle, the possessed lawnmower grins widely, clearly excited for something.

"I mooooowed and now the guests will come yes? For the party I like parties how could someone not like parties there is cake and cake is delicious oooooh I love cake I heard there was cake is there 'cause last time you told me the cake was a horrible lie-"

The young woman's eyes casually drift up to the energetic Rotom, the sly grin unwavering. "I am told that cake is being brought, yes."

"YAAAAAAYCAKE" A burst of grass comes forth from the Rotom's body as it nearly explodes with joy. "CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE"

"Now, you don't go running off too far now, you little nutcase. After all, you have an important job greeting the guests, don't you...?"

"YES! Greettheguests tell them hi say hello OFFER TO TAKE THEIR POKEMON EAT THEIR JACKET AND TELL THEM THEIR FOOD LOOKS WELL-TRAINED"

"...Close enough." Coselle takes another drag from her disposable hookah, letting the strawberry-scented smoke fill the air. "Just remember, you're the greeter... and I'm the bouncer." The young woman's smile grows inhumanly wide as she says this. "Wouldn't want anyone with ill intentions coming to Marion's party, now, would we...?"

---

Meanwhile, inside the cottage, a grinning Frillish seems just about as eager and delighted as the ghostly lawnmower outside about performing his duties. He hums a merry tune as plates of food literally pour out from the kitchen; plates of food seem to be stacked on top of cabinets, inside drawers... even the sink has been lined to accommodate more food, not to mention the casseroles and dishes that seem to have found space on the floor. The floating Frillish moves with grace through the massive amounts of food, however, and seems intent on making even more. A beautiful-looking Ninetales, who has been freshly quaffed (complete with a pink bow) comes prancing into the kitchen, before slipping on some mashed potatoes underfoot and falling face-first into a pile of casserole dishes. The Frillish immediately turns around, putting two of his fins to his face at the simultaneously dejected and hellishly vicious look that the Ninetales gives him.

"Oh, my dear Aislyn, I do hope that you are all right! Do not fret, I am certain that I can clean you up in a jiffy. I can always make more casserole, ohohohoho~!" The Frillish produces a light Water Gun to help wash off the gunk from Ninetales' fur, mindful of the fire-type's weakness to water; while the water works fairly well, Aislyn is now dripping wet, her red eyes narrow with irritation. Despite her anger, however, she knows that she could never snap at the Frillish... After all, he was a kind-hearted soul.

No worries, Bedivere... Why did you make so much food? You don't need this much. Also, leaving it out on the floor is dangerous.

A little Snorunt totters behind Aislyn, and squeaks out, It's your lucky day! Somehow you managed to avoid getting cut by the glass in those dishes! Hmmmmm... I wonder who could be responsible for that... The little Snorunt toddles away, whistling a jaunty tune, while Aislyn growls and sulks her way back into the other room, desperately hoping that none of the guests will be arriving too early.

---

In the bedroom, a decent-sized group of Pokemon are playing cards as they wait for the guests to arrive, while Marion sits and watches them all play, conserving her energy for the big event. August, her faithful Dragonite, sits beside her, silently communicating her steadfast devotion as they sit and watch the young Pokemon play. Above Marion's bed, a Crobat hovers silently, watching over his trainer; though his gaze is less motherly and more intense than August's, it still suggests a strange sort of caring.


((Welcome to the Mini-Mansion! Come on in and enjoy the party~))

This was, without question, the eeriest area of Fizzytopia. Rumors abound that it was haunted, and everyone believed them without question. And yet, the 22-year-old man walking through the grass (which seemed oddly well cared for, something you don't see often in the vicinity of a haunted mansion) seemed remarkably calm. He was dressed in his usual attire- a black t-shirt underneath a sleeveless red jacket, a pair of black fingerless gloves on his hands, a pair of blue jeans, and of course, his trademark cowboy hat. The Meowth on his shoulder, on the other hand, was an entirely different story altogether.

"Wah!" Meowth exclaimed, in perfect English, sounding exactly like the Meowth on TV. "What was dat?!"

"Your imagination," sighed Keith, the Meowth's trainer.

"A-gain," added the Shuppet floating behind them. "Ho-nest-ly, Me-owth, now I know why they coined the phrase 'frai-dy cat'."

"Ehh, who asked you?" snapped Meowth. "C'mon, Keith, what are we doin' in dis part o' da region anyways?"

"As I've told you roughly twenty-three times now," replied Keith, a hint of annoyance in his voice, "Marion's finally out of the hospital, Coselle's helping to throw a party at her Secret Base to celebrate, and we've been invited. OK, well, technically, it's just me that's been invited, but I'm allowed to bring six Pokemon."

"And ya chose me fer dis?" Meowth demanded. "Dat Banette is just creepy-"

"Hey," Keith frowned. He quickly glanced around before whispering, "That's my girlfriend you're talking about. Watch it, OK?"

"Yeah, yeah," said Meowth. "Still, ya couldn't have brought dat Foongus or somethin'?"

"Nah," Keith shook his head. "Lily and James would have my head if I brought Six here without them to look after him. He's only a baby, after all. And I can't bring Six, James, and Lily, not when there are so many others I had to bring.

"Like who?" Meowth demanded.

"Well, for one thing, Myrtle and Peeves," said Keith. "They would kill me if I made them miss out on the opportunity to see those that they love."

"In-deed," Myrtle nodded. "I am not so sure a-bout Peeves, but I can as-sure you that had you not e-lec-ted to bring me, I would have des-troyed you ut-ter-ly."

"And I had to bring Salazar," Keith continued. "It's the Haunted Mirror that turned him grey, no doubt Marion's gonna be fascinated by that. And naturally, Marion's also gonna want to meet the newer Ghost on the team, so Helena had to come along."

"So who's contestant number six?" Meowth asked.

"It was gonna be Hermione," said Keith, "but right now, she and Scorpius are at that stage in their relationship where they don't want to be separated from each other. So I brought Nagini. She and Sakura are friends, after all. Sakura- that's Marion's Nincada, by the way," he added.

"Ah," nodded Meowth. "OK, but seriously, ya couldn't bring somethin' other than me? What about Crabbe?"

At this, Keith actually laughed. "Bring Crabbe to a party?" he chuckled. "With food? That other guests are likely to want to eat?"

"'Nuff said," sighed Meowth. "What about Strychnine?"

"Meowth, I have to be considerate of the other guests," Keith said. "Strychnine may be as friendly as they come, but not everyone is as accustomed to the smell of Grimer as I am. That's also why I didn't bring Bellatrix."

"What about Malfoy? I'd tink you'd want to show off now dat he's evolved," said Meowth. "Or Hedwig? Don't Marion got her own Crobat?"

"Meowth, will you drop it?" asked Keith. "You'll have a great time. I know it, OK? You never met any of Marion's other Pokemon, right?"

"Other than Gadget, don't tink so," Meowth conceded. "Dey ain't as creepy as- well, dey ain't creepy, is dey?"

"Nope," said Keith. "Bedivere might seem a little odd, but he's the most polite Frillish you'll ever meet."

"And the most hand-some," Myrtle sighed, smiling.

"Anyway, her Pokemon are all pretty friendly- some I've seen for myself, others Peeves has told me about," continued Keith. "Just give it a chance, Meowth, you might enjoy yourself."

"Ehh, fine," Meowth sighed, conceding defeat in this argument.

At that moment, they arrived at what was easily the largest tree Keith had ever seen. He could only just make out the green house perched high in its branches.

"Is dat it up dere?" Meowth asked nervously.

"According to the invite I got, that's it, all right," nodded Keith. Then he noticed two familiar figures in the tree's shade- Gadget, the perpetually overexcited Mow Rotom with a passion for lawn maintenance, and Coselle, Marion's sister, and Keith's girlfriend. "Hey there, Gadget," Keith said before grinning at Coselle. "Hi, Coselle. Hope we're not too late."

Meowth mumbled something that sounded vaguely like "Hey, dere,".

"Co-selle, nice to see you a-gain," Myrtle greeted her.

Oh right, it'll be time for the party at Marion's new place soon! a 13 year old boy thought earlier. Just like with Balmund's place I can bring six Pokemon... Sera and Leila are coming with me, of course... Amethyst? No, probably not a good idea to bring her, or the other snakes, for that matter. Sarkhan's a possibility since he'd get to see August... I know, Icarus! Marion was the one that hatched him, so it might be good for him to see his original trainer again... Michael's another good choice, she might be interested in knowing where his grudge is centered around. Daphne might be too much of a prankster to bring along, and Delilah? No, I don't know if her base has a good place for water nearby... Probably too gloomy and not enough sunshine for Toby to have any fun. Aisa would want to come along, even if she just wants to be with me... So that leaves Selina and Laika... I'll go with Laika, just so I wouldn't have to deal with two kitties getting too snuggly with someone, plus he'll probably have fun playing with some of Marion's Pokemon! Okay, so Sera, Leila, Sarkhan, Icarus, Michael, Aisa and Laika... wait, that's seven Pokemon... Aisa might not like the idea, but I totally need a break from her...

----

Hyrem and Sera both liked the idea that they could just fly on Icarus to Marion's new house instead of walking through the creepy forests surrounding it and the spooky mansion in front of it. No, it wasn't the gardener's old quarters, but a small cottage sitting on a weeping willow. Icarus landed just outside of the draping vines of the weeping willow, folded his silver and red wings, and bent down to allow Hyrem and Sera to dismount him. Hyrem simply threw one leg over and jumped down on the freshly-cut grass while Sera gently lifted one of her legs and sat on the side before she lightly pushed herself off and touched the ground gracefully. A dark-haired woman smoking a long pipe and a Mow Rotom were there to greet them, plus Keith, Meowth, and Myrtle had apparently arrived.

"Whew, glad I didn't have to 'enjoy the scenery'!" Hyrem remarked. "Hey Keith, Coselle, great to see you again!" Sera curtsied towards the humans and the Rotom, while Icarus cawed his own greeting.

Connor, Gaspard, Waldemar - It was time for Marion's party to commence and Connor was one of the people who were invited by Marion to go. The young photographer had a very busy schedule lately and tried to reserve this day for the party. Thankfully he did and he was now heading his way towards her Base. It took Connor quite a while and he had gotten himself lost around the woods countless times but finally he arrived at the place.

"Jeez, I am never taking that left turn again! So much for being a shortcut..." Connor mumbled to himself while Gaspard who was resting on his shoulder sighed. Next to the duo was a Lickitung by the name of Waldemar was walking happily next to them with not a care in the world. As they approached the tree, the trio then spotted Keith, Hyrem, and their Pokemon, and an unfamiliar woman.

"Ah, Keith! Hyrem! Looks like I made it just in time!" he said happily as he stepped forward towards the recently mowed part of the area. "Oh, that's right, you guys haven't seen Waldemar, my Lickitung have you? He's still trying to get used to everyone so I brought him along with me," Waldemar then proceeded to lick Connor in the face, "Hehe, that tickles! Stop! You've already licked me like fifty times already!" he laughed as he tried to get his own Lickitung to stop licking him.

Connor then looked towards the unfamiliar woman, "Hmm... I don't believe we've met before... are you perhaps Miss Coselle, Marion's sister?" he asked the woman. "Well anyway, it's nice to meet you! The name's Connor Connelly, but you can just call me Connor," he offered a hand for her to shake. Gaspard glanced towards Meowth and Myrtle, as he knew who Coselle really was.

Cele walked through the forests which surrounded the Hidden Mansion, a Hoothoot being his guide with his Foresight move. Cele had received an invitation to Marion's Get Well Soon Party. She had been let out of the hospital, after a month of recovery, after Minerva, her Banette had accidentally Cursed her. The teenage boy had decided to bring a few of his Pokemon with him, namely Lepido, a gluttonous Wurmple, Soren, a brave Hoothoot and Hecate, a strange Duskull, all which were out of their Pokeballs. He had brought three other Pokemon, but they were in their Pokeballs for now. Neptune, a Wartortle which was his Starter Pokemon, Shade, an Eevee and Raijin, an Emolga. Lepido sat upon his shoulder, Hecate floated at his right and Soren flew ahead of them, scouting out for trouble and leading the way.

"Wurmple..." Lepido spoke up. "Let me guess, you're hungry right?" Cele asked with a grin. Lepido nodded happily. Cele went to one of the trees and picked a few leaves for Lepido to nibble on. "Wurm!" he exclaimed in joy, nuzzling Cele affectionately.

"Hoothoot, Hoot!" Soren called. "What's wrong, Soren? Did you find it?" Cele asked. Soren flew back to Cele, nodded, and lead them towards the Secret Base. Finally, he noticed a tree, much taller than any tree he had seen before in his life. The normally tall grass associated with the Haunted Mansion had been cut, and by the smell, it seemed fresh. Basking in the shade of the tree, he noticed three familiar faces, alongside a woman with jet black hair, strangely resembling Marion. A Mow Rotom, probably the one that cut the grass, was behind them. "Keith, Hyrem, Connor! Somehow, I knew you three would be here!" he said. Turning towards the woman, he introduced himself. "You must be Coselle, Marion's sister. Keith has told me about you. I'm Cele."

Delibird Pink is close to red, which is a Christmas color, right?

Jessica checked her chart, shivering as she drew her second jacket secure, withdrawing from the winter chill. She breathed white, watching the first light flakes of December fall before her eyes. Christmas was coming.

So too, was she - to her close friend's homecoming. Jessica had sorely missed Marion for the month she was in the hospital, and was overjoyed to hear she was being released just in time for holidays. And not just the general, but specific as well. Marion's own Birthday was approaching, so this event was meant to encompass a mass celebration of everything. As such, the girl had prepared several offerings to exchange, the most massive and meaningful of which was currently being carried by her newest team members, a Rotom-H and Drifloon.

"Careful, guys. Waffle, watch your side, it's slipping a bit. Here, back up a bit, Blue. I'll help."

Jessica shifted the bulging bag carrying several other small packages to one arm and slipped her other hand underneath the big box to steady it. Waffle and Blueberry reasserted their grips, and smiled to indicate they were set. Their trainer slid her sleeve away gradually, satisfied to see the container still standing without her support. She then turned to confer with another companion, who was staring at the snow with wide eyes.

"Hey, Kris. How ya feelin'?"

The small Snorunt swiveled her head slowly to her trainer, who shuddered slightly upon receiving a blank gaze. Something seemed... "Different" about Kristen lightly, but Jessica wasn't sure what could be the cause. The Snorunt's ashy skin was unusually pale, and recently developed an over-sensitivity to the sun. The brim of her black beret was drawn low to shade her head, and Jessica had even switched her Hold Item to a Vampire Cape in order to shield the Snorunt's body. She knelt down, setting down her sack to gently adjust the mantle. Kristen stood completely still throughout the process, but her bright beam at the end reassured Jess she was still with them. The girl gave Kristen a quick hug, hoping she was simply overthinking matters, and that bringing the Ice-Type outside the Base wasn't a mistake. Surely some fresh air would be beneficial to her recovery. Besides, it would be a good opportunity for the young Pokémon to meet and hopefully make some new pals.

Sewaddle, on the other hand, had preferred to stay home and sleep, since her body wasn't well-suited to this climate. However, she had spun some warm clothes using the last of autumn's foliage for everyone before they left, so they blended into the surrounding woods. Jessica fussed over Kristen's scarlet scarf once more and patted her hat before standing. Hearing the sound of a splat and laughter behind her, she spun around to see a Delibird wiping frost from his feathers, glaring at a Wynaut who was whistling innocently as a Ralts stood by, smothering her own giggles. The penguin picked up a glob of ice from the ground and hurled it back at the perpetrator, whose eyes glowed as he abruptly stopped the projectile with PSYCHIC, sending it splattering into bark instead. The Ralts clapped her hands in admiration, while the Delibird fumed and began to gather an even greater ball, scooping vigorously with his wings.

“Custard, Bobble, cut it out!” Jessica cried. “If you boys have energy to misbehave, why don’t you assist me in carrying all these, huh?”

Despite the promise of hard work, the penguin puffed up proudly as he tottered towards the bulk, rolling up his plumage and spitting on his wingtips before rubbing them together. Jessica suppressed a roll of her eyes as Custard punched his chest, telling his trainer to leave it to him. Delivering gifts was his specialty after all. Grabbing onto the knot, he hefted the top over his shoulders and heaved and huffed, managing to slowly drag the weight behind him a couple inches before falling flat on his face as the burden unexpectedly vanished. Given how light the layer of soft surface was, his beak immediately encountered the soil underneath. Lifting his body from the large imprint it made, he shook as he spit out dirt and snow, glancing back to see Bobble grinning as he easily elevated the mass with his mind. Jessica quickly inserted between them before Custard could try to tackle the show-off.

“All right, all right, you two can fight later. Let’s just get going, Marion’s expecting us.” Casting about in concern, she called through the forest: “Kief, Kanna, Minchi, you three keeping up okay? We’re moving on, so hurry along now.”

A bark in response, from a Zigzagoon who came bounding through the branches. Upon entering the clearing, he fell immediately into a deep bank, but kept on burrowing at the same pace, popping up before his trainer with his tongue hanging out and panting. She laughed as she bent down to pat his snout, and he licked her fingers, sticking the pink portion straight to catch a particle of sugar-like powder to taste.

In his tracks tiptoed a Furret and Minccino, chatting together cheerfully (though the latter was doing most of the talking). Jessica waited patiently for the couple to catch up, counting to confirm all were in attendance before issuing the command to carry on. Her hands now free, she hoisted Kristen and cuddled the baby Snorunt close as she walked. Bobble paused to extend an appendage towards the Ralts (continuing to conduct his obligation with the other). Alice brightened, and linked her arm with his, leaning her hair against his shoulder as they strolled side-by-side. Meanwhile, as Waffle and Blueberry tightened their holds on the carton, his mitt met her heart briefly, and sparks flew between them. They both blushed, but maintained the connection, interlocking to coordinate their movement.

The Furret watched this all take place, and peeked down at her own paw, then towards Kief. However, as she reached out for him, he sank back down on all fours and set off after the others at a sprint. Kanna sighed, realizing such a gesture of intimacy wouldn’t work well for their kind given their mode of travel anyway. Minchi shook her head and tugged on her friend’s tail, taking it as an alternative. The duo regarded each other warmly, and started after the rest of the group.

Custard looked up from putting the finishing touches on his snowangelbird (if he was going to leave a mark, it may as well accurately capture his handsomeness), and scratched his skull as almost everyone strangely left him in pairs. Shrugging, he simply waddled after.

As Jessica approached the Haunted Mansion, she consulted her map again and made a mild change in direction towards a tall tree in its backyard. (To be honest, she’d as soon rather not set foot near the house itself.) As the party approached, they heard an animated hum, growing more and more energized. Sure enough, the source of the sound turned out to be Marion’s new Rotom and Waffle’s brother, Gadget, who was clearly more than eager to greet the guests. Jessica giggled at his enthusiasm, which turned to coughs as smoke suddenly filled her lungs (though for some strange reason it smelled of strawberries?). From the shadows she spotted Miss Coselle sitting at the base of the trunk, taking a long draw on her hookah. Jessica gingerly stepped forward to shake the woman’s hand.

“H-hello, Miss Coselle. Do you remember me? I was the one who traded you Gadget for Drifloon.” She nodded towards the hyperactive lawnmower, who was racing circles around his brother and Blueberry as they tried to raise the cake well out of his reach. The girl hesitated, then leaned a little closer despite the overwhelmingly fragrant fog. “I bought another present for Marion as well, like I promised. Can you come to the Cable Club sometime so I can send it over to you? I want it to be a surprise.”

Coselle does not have long to wait before her energetic companion is speeding up the first guest, eager to greet him.

HELLOOOO KEEF the happy lawnmower exclaims. YOU ARE HERE AND HERE YOU ARE so now I am greeting you with GREETINGS you are here for the party yeeeeeees I bet you are do you have the cake I know somebody has the cake is it yoooooou?

Coselle looks up, a small smile on her face, though she does her best to conceal the slight flutter in her heart. "I am glad you've come," she adds coolly in contrast to the lawnmower's unconcealed enthusiasm. Coselle stands up, inhaling deeply from her hookah before giving Keith the once-over. "Looks like it's you, at any rate... Living in this neck of the woods, you have to be careful for ghostly impostors. I've been stationed out here to kick the shit out of anyone who tries to come in here that shouldn't." Coselle cackles wickedly, her voice dropping low as she moves closer to Keith. "Of course, I cannot be sure that you are not here to assassinate my sister... To make doubly sure you're not carrying concealed weapons, you'll have to put your Pokemon back in their Pokeballs and I will need to do a strip search. You know... for safety reasons."

Coselle pulls at Keith's jacket and pulls at his shirt collar with her teeth, but immediately lets go as she is distracted by Gadget's happy chittering. "MORE GUESTS MORE GUESTS" he chants as he figure-eights around Sera and Hyrem. Immediately brushing herself off and pretending like nothing happened, Coselle nods her head in the direction of Hyrem, Sera and Icarus.

"A pleasure, Hyrem. Marion will certainly be happy to have guests. I am sure she is wondering how Icarus is doing, too... I understand he was her Pokemon for a brief time." Before Coselle can speak further, however, she notices Connor approaching. "Hello C-" she starts, before realizing that she is not supposed to know who he is. "Nice to meet you, and your new Lickitung as well. He seems to have taken a liking to you, hmmm?" Coselle extends a thin, pale hand to shake... It is abnormally icy, like a corpse.

Not far behind is Cele, who has come along with his Hoothoot, Wurmple and Duskull. The Duskull in particular had something of a strange aura, but far be it from Coselle to be perturbed by something as minor as that. If anything, it meant the Duskull would likely fit right in with Marion's crowd.

"Hello and welcome, Cele," Coselle says by way of greeting. It is around this time that Coselle seems to become aware of the absence of something... Namely, Gadget's incessant rambling. Where had that little lawnmower gone...? Coselle looks around for a couple of moments before realizing that he had darted off to go greet a familiar face... Jessica had come, bringing plenty of Pokemon and goodies along for the ride, and Gadget was whirling circles around the cake, chittering gleefully that he knew the towering sweet would arrive. Jessica offers her own hand to shake, and finds Coselle's handshake just as eerily frigid and ghostlike as when they shook hands at the Cable Club... but at least Coselle's eyes had some degree of warmth in them.

"Of course I remember you, Jessica. Welcome. I hope you and your Pokemon are not too tired from carrying all these goods! Please let me know if you need any help carrying them up. August is very well-suited to this sort of thing." Coselle chuckles a bit at Jessica's mention of a gift. "Oh, you are spoiling my little sister, aren't you? I love it~" Coselle claps her hands together, looking surprisingly happy. "Simply say the word and I will be there. You have my number, do you not? If not, feel free to ask Marion to give it to you."

Coselle bows to all those present, and motions towards the base of the tree. Her eyes seem to glow oddly for a moment, and the base of the trunk shivers and fades, the illusion of an undisturbed base giving way to an intricately carved door. Coselle produces a key and unlocks the strange door, which shows that the tree has been hollowed out to form a spiral staircase within.

"Gwyn? Gwyn, the guests are here!" Coselle turns to the company present. "It's pitch black inside the trunk, so Gwyn has agreed to lead you up the stairs with his light. Oh, there you are!"

A little Litwick appears in the doorway, grinning sheepishly and waving at the trainers and Pokemon gathered outside. He points toward the stairs, and beckons the crowd to follow him up to the house.

"The staircase will lead you right into the living room," Coselle adds. "I will remain outside to greet the other guests. Off you go, then! I am sure Marion and her Pokemon are looking forward to seeing all of you. Also... Marion has asked that you please eat as much of the food as you can. Bedivere is trying to kill us all by drowning us in food." Coselle chuckles darkly, sitting back down under the willow tree to smoke her hookah once more.

Gadget greeted Keith with his usual endless enthusiasm and limitless energy, and not long after, Coselle also greeted him, though rather coolly, in contrast to the Rotom. She then stated that she had been stationed outside to ensure that nobody gets in who shouldn't, and that she couldn't be sure that he wasn't there to assassinate Marion. Though this confused Keith initially, once Coselle said the words "strip search", Keith immediately realized what she was getting at, and a grin started creeping up his face. Indeed, his hands were already moving down towards Meowth and Myrtle's Poke Balls with the intent of withdrawing those two back into them, when Gadget excitedly heralded the arrival of more guests. Coselle hastily made like nothing was happening. Taking the cue, Keith did the same and turned to face the coming guests. First was Hyrem, flying in on Icarus, his Skarmory.

"Hey, Hyrem," Keith greeted his friend as he saw him and Sera climbing down off the Skarmory's back. "Heh, the scenery wasn't that bad, though."

"Speak fer yerself," Meowth butted in.

"Don't mind Meowth," Keith sighed. "He's afraid of his own shadow."

"I am not!" Meowth argued.

"On the way here," Myrtle spoke up, "you have mis-tak-en your sha-dow for a psy-cho-tic axe mur-der-er, a de-mo-nic Char-i-zard, and a gi-ant fight-ing ro-bot made en-ti-re-ly out of cheese gra-ters. You were say-ing?"

"Nobody asked youse!" snapped Meowth.

Just then, Connor, another friend of Keith's, approached them, with a Pokemon following him that Keith knew must be a Lickitung, though he wasn't aware that Connor owned one.

"Hey, Connor," Keith greeted him. "Nah, haven't seen him before," Keith added as Connor introduced Waldemar, his Lickitung. As Connor introduced himself to Coselle, Gaspard, the Aipom, glanced instead towards Meowth and Myrtle, likely due to him already knowing who Coselle really was.

"Hey dere, Gaspard," Meowth greeted the Aipom. Just then, a burst of light exploded forth from one of Keith's Poke Balls, forming itself, to Keith's surprise, into an Ivysaur.

"Pomona?!" Keith exclaimed. "What the-" he grabbed his Pokedex and looked up his team, and sure enough, his on-hand Pokemon were listed as Meowth, Shuppet, Shuppet, Duskull, Venipede, and Ivysaur. He had obviously not been paying attention when arranging his team and must have withdrawn his Ivysaur instead of his Arbok. Oh, well, it's not like Pomona wasn't going to enjoy herself.

Indeed, as Keith stuffed his Pokedex back into his pocket, Cele also arrived with a handful of Pokemon around him, and Pomona ran up to Hecate, the Duskull. "Hi! Hi!" she greeted Hecate. "Remember me? I'm Pomona, the Ivysaur from the tree grove! I remember you, you're Hecate! It's so nice to see you again!"

"Foo-lish I-vy-saur," Myrtle said snippily.

"Now Myrtle," Keith said. "Pomona isn't foolish."

"Oh real-ly?" Myrtle retorted. "Then ex-plain why she has a ten-den-cy to try and be-friend ab-so-lute-ly e-ve-ry-bo-dy, es-pe-ci-al-ly those who it would be wis-est to stay a-way from, hmmm?"

"I don't see it that way," Keith argued. "The way I see it, Pomona has a tendency to try and befriend those who are most in need of a friend. I was talking to Peeves and Luna the other day, and they agree with me, you know."

"What-e-ver," Myrtle scoffed.

Jessica arrived at that moment, and Keith called out "Hi," to her, though given that she and her Pokemon looked extraordinarily busy handling a large cake, Keith thought it better to not start conversing with her until after they were able to set the cake down somewhere.

It was then revealed that there was a door carved into the tree, and that the inside of the trunk had been hollowed out to make room for a spiral staircase. Coselle explained that it led right into the Secret Base, and due to the fact that the trunk's interior was pitch black, Gwyn, Marion's Litwick, was to lead the way. Pomona cheerfully waved one of her vines at the sight of one of her friends. Keith led the way up the stairs (though obviously let Gwyn go first, given that he was to light the way), Meowth on his shoulder, Myrtle floating behind him, and Pomona walking right behind them.

Delibird Everyone makes mistakes.

Jessica smiled in relief as Miss Coselle greeted her warmly. In fact, there even seemed to be a twinkle in her eye. A dreamy look, almost... The girl realized it was directed somewhat over her shoulder, and glanced back to find Keith standing there, who grinned and said "Hello". As Jess waved politely in return, she drew a line between him and Miss Coselle, and stepped back slightly to allow the two a clearer connection.

Upon the woman's offer of assistance, Jessica shook her head, declining politely.

"Thanks, but I think Bobble's got this. Right?" She nodded to the Wynaut, who adjusted his shades and gave her an ear-arm-up. Alice felt her boyfriend's psychic muscle tone and giggled, as Jessica beamed with pride. Despite the fact Bobble had recently undergone self-meditation in order to seal several of his former Moves at her request, he was still supremely strong and skilled for his species.

As Miss Coselle clapped her hands at Jessica's promise of a present, the girl couldn't help but soften at the woman’s – Minerva’s – sincere show of enthusiasm. So much like an older sister, yet resembling a child herself. She was clearly different from when Jessica had seen her last. More jovial, carefree. Alive. Could this Keith’s doing? (There was also the fact that Marion, was home, of course. Min- Miss Coselle must surely be overjoyed to see her train- sister safe. After all, she had been the one to almost...)

At that moment, Jessica’s PokéGear began to ring. Setting Kristen down, she pardoned herself as she checked the machine, and saw a strange text message titled simply “Hey”. Her heart suddenly started to pound as she recognized the sender, and peered keenly at its contents. Confusion crossed her face. Abruptly, the phone beeped again, this time signaling an incoming call. Excusing herself once more, she retreated to the surrounding trees to answer it. After an agonizing minute, during which the girl seemed to grow more and more distressed and stammered her words, she hung up and returned dejectedly to the party.

“Sorry about that,” she sighed, her expression glum as she rubbed the back of her head, a hint of embarrassment colorizing her cheeks. Inclining towards Miss Coselle, she whispered in the woman’s ear: “Um, it seems there’s been a mis- er, ‘mix-up’ of some sort regarding the transaction. Don’t worry, I’ll go take care of it right away! I’ll give you a buzz to come to the Cable Club when it’s ready. Please tell Marion I’ll be back soon!”

Spinning around, she nearly bumped into Connor as well as two other unfamiliar arrivals, and nodded to them before rushing off into the woods, leaving her own teammates behind in bewilderment. Bobble shrugged and began levitating the sack up the staircase, as the others followed. Waffle and Blueberry seemed to be having some trouble lifting their load vertically though, especially with a lawnmower nipping at their tails. Plus their arms were growing tired from carrying such a huge confection for so long. ...In her haste, Jessica had apparently forgotten all about the cake. She hadn’t even had time to coo over Marion’s adorable little Liltwick, Gwyn, as he appeared in the doorway to guide the guests. Blueberry seemed rather taken by his charm though, wanting to reach out and pinch the cute candle's cheeks – much to Waffle's despair as he tried to carefully maintain the box’s balance on his own.

It wasn't long after Hyrem dismounted that the Mow Rotom danced around the three Pokemon very quickly, greeting them just as fast. "Is... your Rotom always this hyper?" Hyrem asked as he sweatdropped. Then Coselle greeted him and told him that Marion will probably be happy to see Icarus again since she was the trainer that hatched him. "Yeah, he was!" he responded. "And I like that I have him now so he can Fly me all over the place!" Icarus cawed proudly at the mere mention of him. "Though I kinda wish he didn't let that get to his head," Hyrem said, making sure to speak a little quieter so his Skarmory wouldn't hear his ego deflate.

Sera, meanwhile, was interested in the lawnmower. "Hello there, I do not believe we have met. I am Sera; what might your name be?"

Then another guest showed up; this time it was Connor, the photographer. "Hey, what's up, Connor! So, you've got a Lickitung? Nice!" The Lickitung beside him, Waldemar, then started licking Connor's face. "Haha, I can relate!" Hyrem said, being reminded of another Pokemon he brought with him. "See for yourself!" he continued before releasing a black bundle of energy from the Pokeball in his hand. Laika, the Poochyena, didn't even wait to fully materialize from his capsule before knocking over Hyrem and licking his face. "Haha, okay, okay, I thought you'd get tired of doing that!" he laughed as he pushed Laika off. "Say, I don't think you've met Connor, have you? Go say hi to him!" Laika rushed over and barked happily towards the other trainer, then turned to the Lickitung. "Hi, hi! I'm Laika, what's your name?"

Next came Cele, and he had three Pokemon with him as well, none of whom Hyrem had met before. "Cele! Yeah, I couldn't miss this!" Hyrem admitted. "So, I didn't know you had any of those Pokemon, you must've been busy!"

Another guest showed up, and this time it was someone Hyrem wasn't familiar with. However, he did notice the Ralts she had with her, so she had to be a friendly trainer... right? He was going to say hi to her, but she abruptly left, leaving her Pokemon to explore while she took care of an errand. Still, he could at least meet the Ralts. "Aw, hi there! You remind me of Sera when she was a Ralts; she was just as cute as you are! ...And she still is, hehehe," he chuckled nervously as Sera floated towards him transmitting a red color of warning to his head before changing to a satisfied blue color. Then Sera took the chance to speak to the Ralts by transmitting a friendly yellow color to her mind, wondering what kind of color might be transmitted back.

Coselle then shows everyone the stairs inside the tree trunk that lead up to the cottage. Icarus ignores the stairs and just flies up to the top of the willow tree, where he could see everyone and everything not under the tree from his perch. Once they were done with exchanging greetings with the other guests, Hyrem, Sera, and Laika head into the tree trunk stairs, following the silent Litwick, Gwyn, as he lit the way towards the top of the stairs.

As Connor shook hands with Coselle, he felt her ice cold hands and shivered slightly from the feeling. "Whoa, that's cold... Winter chill got to you or something?" he then let go of Coselle's hand. Much later, Cele, Jessica, and their Pokemon had come with Jessica carrying all sorts of goods, most likely for the party. "Cele, Jessica! Good to see you two!" Connor was about to offer help, but Jessica had already declined Coselle's help. She was most likely going to decline his too. Jessica then abruptly left as it seemed she was settling on something. Coselle, Keith, and Hyrem all replied to him about Waldemar, his new Lickitung, "Hehe, I just got him from a few days ago. Keith, Hyrem, you two know about Humphrey right? My Roggenrola? I got Waldemar from the same guy that traded me Humphrey many months ago," he said to them.

Gaspard meanwhile had been greeted by Meowth and greeted back with a toothy grin, -Hey there Meowth! Good to see you!- Waldemar was also greeted by Hyrem's Poochyena, -Hello Laika! Can Waldemar lick Laika?- he said with a grin. Gaspard sighed. -Waldemar, you can't just... oh never mind,- He and Connor knew that the Lickitung had the tendency to want to lick everyone he sees and he and Connor had to try and stop him from suddenly licking the guard from the Cable Club at one point. It really was just the Lickitung's way of making friends though that's not to say that some may be annoyed by this gesture. Well, at the very least he was asking permission first this time.

Coselle had then called on Gwyn, Marion's Litwick, to guide the four into the trunk. Connor smiled and waved towards the Litwick while he set up his camera to flash and have his own light as they went in.

Cele was worried that he was late, but when he saw an unfamiliar female trainer, accompanied by a variety of Pokemon, he calms down a bit. The amount of Pokemon she has brought is quite massive, including a Delibird, Ralts, Wynaut, Drifloon, Heat Rotom, Linoone, Zigzagoon and Minccino, most of them carrying goodies and treats of all sorts, supposedly for the party. Unfortunately, she answers a call on her Pokegear, and looks embarrassed, rushing out, nearly bumping into Cele and Hyrem on the way. Coselle greets Cele, welcoming him to the party. Cele notices her glance at Hecate, but he dismisses it as curiosity. Hyrem sees the three Pokemon that Cele came with, and notes that Cele must have been busy.

"Oh yeah, ever since these new PC Storage System Laws came into place, I've gotten five new Pokemon." Cele grinned. "I can see that you've been busy as well, I didn't know you had a Skarmory." he said. As Hyrem released a Poochyena from its Pokeball, Cele added, "Or a Poochyena. What other Pokemon have you gotten since the new Laws came into place?" Cele asked. Cele then turned to Connor. "Looks like we've all been busy, you got yourself a Lickitung!" Cele said. At this point, Hecate was approached by an energetic Ivysaur, one that was familiar to her. Pomona greeted Hecate cheerfully. "Pomona... Never thought I'd see you here... It's a small world..." Hecate replied before floating back to Cele's side.

Coselle decided to let the guests into the Mini-Mansion, uncovering a secret door in the trunk of the willow tree. Cele was surprised. She calls out to someone, then an adorable Litwick appears in the entrance of the trunk, offering to light the way up the spiral staircase. Soren knows that the staircase may be cramped as it is, so he follows in the wingbeats of a Skarmory before him, flying to the top of the tree instead, perching beside the Skarmory. With Lepido still on his shoulder, and Hecate floating behind him, they make their way up the stairs.

Blaze was never one for being late. Never. Throughout his school career, he was almost never late. And, never late on purpose. But, today, he was late. Or, so he thought. Blaze had heard about the birthday party for Marion Ette, a trainer who he had met at one point. He had heard that she had fallen ill a while ago, and since then, Blaze had heard nothing since. He was worried. Well, he was always one to worry. If anyone he knew got sick or hurt, Blaze was known for staying up all night worrying. It surely was a pain, but he could do nothing to stop the worrying. It was a part of him. Blaze was busy getting dressed in "nice" clothes, something a little bit more formal than a hoodie and jeans but not as formal as a tux and dress shirt. A brief cough came out as he was putting on his shirt, the aftermath of that Poison Gas attack he inhaled still giving him problems.

When he came out of his room, he saw his Pokemon. Despite the fact that he wanted all of his Pokemon to come, he thought it was going to be rude if he brought all of them. And there was no changing his mind on that. So, he was only going to pick three out of his nine team members to go with him. How was he going to pick which ones though? "Alright guys. After a long and careful deliberation, I have decided what would be the fairest and least fun way to pick you guys. By way of a Random Number Generator!" Blaze heard a groan collect. Yeah, it was boring, but it was fair.

Blaze clicked on the random number generator on a screen he had, and it beeped and whirred, before a series of numbers came up: "9, 8, and 6." "Alright, so that means that...well, this is interesting, a couple of new guys are coming with me today. Ritz, Vesuvius, and Farseer are coming along." While the rest of Blaze's team sighed and went back to their rooms, three Pokemon came up in front. The first was a Nosepass, the most recent member of Blaze's team. Her name was Ritz, and she was a determined girl, and feisty at that. Her nose was always the brightest red though, even brighter than a normal Nosepass. The second was a Slugma by the name of Vesuvius, and he was a prankster...if you could call him that. He could not do much harm now, other than his igniting smog blast, where he blows himself up. Blaze hoped that he would keep himself behaved. The third was an Alomomola named Farseer, intellectual and a sucker for romance. "I am glad that you guys get to come along with me. This will be a nice party!"

Blaze and his team walked through the scary forest to get to Marion's place. Blaze was never too scared of ghosts or spirits, and neither was Farseer or Ritz. Vesuvius, however, was scared witless for some reason, and was constantly spitting out black clouds of smog everywhere. Blaze made sure that he stayed away from the smog...he did not want an episode to ruin the party. When he got to the tree where Marion's base was supposed to be at, he saw a woman standing on it, smoking a hookah. Blaze flinched as he came close. He couldn't smell or breath in the smoke, but the memories made his throat clench up and he coughed from the mental suggestion. "Are you alright Blaze? Are you sure that you will be able to stay well at this party?" "Yeah, Farseer. I will be fine. Now, everyone, be on our best behavior. This is a birthday party for someone who is sick." "You got it Blaze!" said Ritz, shifting her hands around. "Don't worry about me. I know when to quit." Blaze walked up to the woman, who he had just recognized as Coselle, Marion's sister, and stuck a hand out as a greeting. "Hello, the name is Blaze. Nice to meet you....and where is the party? I don't see anything."

Coselle seems oddly disappointed by the fact that Jess seems to have important business to attend to, though she does her best to hide the emotion. "I will be sure to let Marion know that you will be returning as quickly as you can." The black-haired woman chuckles a bit. "She is a patient girl; I would not worry too much. I hope whatever issues you are facing will be resolved to your liking." Coselle nods towards Jessica and relaxes against the tree once again, knowing that the guests are being safely led up the stairs by Gwyn.

The sound of coughing snaps Coselle out of her reverie, as another guest approaches the mysterious tree-cottage in order to visit with Coselle's sister. She smirks a bit, though her eyes darken, as if suddenly aware of something upsetting. "Quite a death rattle you have there, Blaze," she remarks. "Wouldn't happen to be a smoker too, would you...?"

Coselle takes Blaze's hand in hers for a friendly handshake, though her hand is surprisingly ice-cold. "Pleased to meet you, by the way. I'm Marion's sister, Coselle." Retracting her hand when the handshake has gone on for an adequate amount of time, she raps on the base of the tree, which suddenly begins shimmering as the illusion of a solid tree trunk fades into an intricately carved door. The door seems to already have been opened, and the sound of footsteps can be heard from the stairs spiraling above.

"The others are already heading up. Quickly, now! I would rather you not get left behind in the dark. Marion's Litwick is leading the way up the staircase, which will take you directly to the cottage."

Coselle makes a friendly, but hurried gesture toward the door, encouraging Blaze and his Pokemon to head on up.

---

Little Gwyn poses for Connor's photograph, grinning widely as the camera flashes. He then takes it upon himself to try and help Blueberry and Waffle lift the cake up the steps; after all, he considered himself one of the hosts of the party, and it was his duty to help however he could. He blushes, sensing that Blueberry shares Jessica's opinion of the Litwick as being unbearably adorable, though he notices Waffle's reaction and tries to make a mental note not to get involved in any drama.

The cakebearers lead the way up the stairs, with the other trainers and Pokemon following close behind. Eventually, the soft glow of Gwyn's candle is met by the expanding rectangular light of a trap door opening; a grinning blue face awaits at the top of the stairs, as a rather jovial looking Frillish floats down to meet Gwyn, and help the trio of ghost Pokemon carry the cake.

"Oh, my dear Gwyn, please allow me to help you and your friends carry this massive cake, ohohoho~" The Frillish addresses the Litwick in perfect English; the Litwick nods in response, making room for the Frillish to help carry. As the cake makes its way into the living room, the other guests are able to climb the stairs and pass through the trapdoor, as well. "There is no room in the kitchen, but perhaps we shall place the cake right here on the living room table... It would certainly serve as a lovely centerpiece before devouring, ohohohoho~! Such a delicious-looking cake, if I do say so myself! The baker must be incredibly talented."

The Frillish turns to the company present, and bows as regally as he can while still carrying the cake. "A pleasure... For those of you with whom I am not acquainted, my name is Bedivere. I am utterly thrilled and delighted that you all have decided to come~! I trust that you will enjoy the food I have prepared, ohohohoho~"

The living room has been thoughtfully decorated with pastel, Victorian-style wallpaper, which serves as the backdrop for a number of beautifully-painted portraits. Of course, the guests cannot help but feel as though the paintings are watching them, but perhaps it was to be expected for a cottage in which a number of ghosts lived. There are plenty of places for both humans and Pokemon to sit, as well as a few coffee tables and a large living-room table in the center. The furniture appears to have been recently placed, and was likely borrowed specially for the occasion.

Sitting in a high-backed chair in the far corner of the living room is a very familiar figure... The lavender-haired lady seems to have more makeup on than usual, and the dress she wears is more light, cheerful and feminine than what she has previously worn. Perhaps inspired by a combination of wanting to look her best for the occasion and attempts to hide the remnants of her illness, she shines with an air of effortlessness, though it is clear that she spent hours agonizing over her appearance before the guests had arrived.

She slowly, carefully ascends to her feet, a glowing, genuine grin clear on her face. "Hello, everyone," she cheerfully says by way of greeting. "Oh, it's so good to see you all! It has been far too long..." Marion looks at the guests who have gathered, and notices a number of Pokemon that she does not recognize. "It looks like I have a lot of new names to learn, haha~!" As she scans the crowd, she notices a familiar face... "Icarus? Is that you? Oh, you are looking wonderful! I trust that Hyrem is treating you well?"

A little Duskull floats from behind Marion and darts towards Keith, stopping short of him, giving him a shy glance as she speaks to him in stilted English. "Hi, Keith," she starts. "Saaaaay... you not happen to, uh... bring Peeves along, would you? I just curious! It okay if you not, but, uh..." Liliana twiddles her ghostly thumbs and blushes.

Meanwhile, Marion turns her attention to everyone gathered. "My other Pokemon are scattered throughout the house. Please, make yourselves at home, all of you! Do not be afraid to let your Pokemon explore." She looks up at the trainers gathered, eager to begin conversation. "So, what have you guys been up to this past month? I want to hear all about your adventures and exploits~!"

As Keith filed into the cottage with the others, he glanced around at the Victorian-style wallpaper, the abundance of furniture, and the portraits that all seemed to be watching them. Keith was not unnerved by these pictures, however, but did take notice of the extravagant amount of food Bedivere had prepared.

"Good Arceus," Keith muttered. "Maybe I should've brought Crabbe after all."

At that moment, Marion rose out of her seat and happily greeted all the guests. Before Keith could open his mouth to say hi, however, a Duskull floated over to Keith. Before she even opened her mouth, Keith smiled, knowing exactly what Liliana was going to say, and had already taken his own Duskull's Poke Ball off his belt. Before he could even open his mouth to answer Liliana, the ball burst open of its own accord, and Peeves materialized, wasting no time in wrapping Liliana in a hug.

"Lil, I miss you so much! It so good see you again!!" Peeves exclaimed, clearly nothing short of thrilled to see his girlfriend again.

"You had nothing to worry about, Liliana," Keith said, still grinning. "Peeves wouldn't stop talking about you all month. Even if I didn't want to bring him for whatever reason, there's no way he'd let me get away with it. He missed you a lot. But I think you guessed that already," he added as Peeves continued to hug Liliana. Keith then turned to face Marion. "Hi, Marion," he smiled. "You're looking good. Glad to see you again."

Myrtle, meanwhile, floated over to their blue, floating host, unable to conceal a small smile on her face. "Hel-lo, Be-di-vere," she said. "It is ve-ry nice to see you a-gain."

As Myrtle invited the trainers to let their Pokemon roam freely through the house, Keith glanced at Meowth. "Maybe later," Meowth said. "Yer shoulder's too darn comfy at da moment." Pomona wasn't sure where to go first, and seemed paralyzed by indecisiveness. Keith, meanwhile, took out the remaining two Poke Balls whose occupants were still within, though he figured Marion would want to see them both before they started exploring the house.

"I got myself a number of new Pokemon over the past month," Keith said to Marion. "Brought one of them with me, in fact," he added as he tossed one of the balls into the air. "Helena, come on out!" he called as his second Shuppet materialized in midair. Positively beaming, Helena took in the new and unfamiliar sights before her eyes came to rest on Marion. "Hel-lo," she said happily. "You must be Ma-ri-on, right? I have heard a-bout you, and it is a plea-sure to meet you!"

"Marion, this is Helena," Keith said. "I figured you might like to meet her. Oh, and you remember Salazar, my Venipede, right? Thought you might want to see- Salazar was the only one on the team brave enough to actually volunteer to look into that haunted mirror on Halloween, and, well..." Keith wordlessly sent out Salazar. The Venipede looked like any other, except for the fact that his entire body was a slightly eerie yet undeniably badass shade of Shiny Charizard grey. "The mirror sucked him in, and spat him out like that. He doesn't seem to mind it at all- to be honest, neither do I, it's actually pretty cool. Anyway, as for the others, I didn't bring them with me, but I got a Foongus, a Blue-Striped Basculin, a considerably nicer Stunfisk, a Timburr, and an Eevee. Oh, and Malfoy evolved into a Toxicroak, and Luna evolved into a Swoobat," he added, grinning. At that moment, he made a mental note to bring out his Timburr later, see what Marion had to say about the situation with Willow...
