"I-I'll be sure to do that." Jake nodded. "Well...see you tomorrow I-I guess." He said, before walking off once more.
----
As Jake returned to the Pokemon Center, so too did Telpo. The Abra quickly floated back over to Millicent, in his left hand he appeared to be hiding something.
"Sorry about that. I meant to give you this." Telpo explained, revealing what appeared to be a type of charm.
It was a beautiful white stone, with a small string tied through a hole at the rocks top. If Millicent was to grab the stone, she would be able to feel just how smooth it was.
"I found this a while back..and well..I thought you'd like it." Telpo smiled.
"Then again I don't know if it's really your style. If not then that's okay too..."
----
"Huh? Oh yeah I guess..." Pom replied. "I was just thinking about earlier. I don't know if I told you, but my trainer is going to be investigating a lead regarding Team Catalyst tomorrow.
I was originally all for checking it out with him..but...well it kind of dawned on me just now. Earlier I was asking you not to go after them for revenge...and yet, I'd be doing the same." Pom explained.
"I was just thinking if I should go or not. On one hand, if this lead does turn out to be something, Jake may very well need my help. But on the other hand...well..I don't want to worry you..."
----
"Well...I don't know about ass kicking..but I'll definitely make sure he pays for his actions." Hayai nodded.
----

Jake's heart fell as Peeves revealed himself from behind the man and his Lucario, revealing that his illusions wouldn't hold up to their test. Though he continued to say nothing, his hand immediately drifted towards his illusionary belt.
Much to his surprise though Keith seemed to agree with Lucario performing the test. This lasted for only a moment however, for Keith then called for Peeves to use Fire Punch.
Unable to react in time, Lucario let out a cry as the Dusknoir's flame covered fist scored a direct hit!
"Lucario, reveal these imposters at once!" The man bellowed.
Heeding his trainer's instructions, Lucario used it's Foresight to shoot a red laser directly at the pair. Upon making contact with the laser, the illusions shattered, revealing Keith and Jake's true identities.

With the illusions gone, nothing was left to hold Jake's Pokeballs up, and all six scattered upon the floor. Wasting no time, Jake knelt down, tossing the first Pokeball he managed to get his hands on.
From the ball emerged a rather angry looking Tauros, who seemed eager to destroy anything in his path.

"You dare take up arms against me? Pathetic." The man said, shaking his head.
"My grandfather put much of his life into this lab, so people and Pokemon had a better future. I won't have you two spit on his legacy. As one of the owners of this place, this I can assure you."

"Grandfather? Owner of Hagane Labs? Jake questioned. Then the man they were facing...it was Steven, one of the four Catalyst admins!
As Jake was lost in thought, Steven took the time to grab a Pokeball from his belt, before chucking it at the floor. In a flash of light, a Mawile appeared, the large mouth on it's head snapping at it's opponents.

"Y-your grandfather's legacy? I-I think you've..you've damaged it enough..by siding with Team Catalyst." Jake said.
"A-alright Vernon, use Flamethrower on Mawile, t-then go for..Rock Smash!" Jake ordered.

"Mawile, use Crunch on Dusknoir, Lucario go with Close Combat on Tauros!" Steven barked.

Starting the first round off, Mawile lunged at Peeves head first, intent on trapping the Dusknoir within it's large jaws!

"So I'm guessing Pomona's giving you the grand tour, yeah?" said Cotton.

"Yep!" smiled Pomona. "Next is the- ooh! Cassiopia, do you like to swim?" she asked the Elgyem, realizing which room she intended to show her next.


Keith nodded. "See you then," he replied.


Millicent smiled as Telpo handed her the charm. "I love it, Telpo," she smiled, holding the remarkably smooth stone in her hand. "Thanks so much!"


Cyanide listened as Pom explained Jake's plans for the following day. "That's a good point," she murmured. "I... yeah, I'd be just as worried about you as you'd be about me if I went after them..." She gave an involuntary shudder, remembering the time she learned that Pom, among some of Jake's other Pokémon, had been stolen. She was out of her mind with rage, and with worry- had something seriously bad happened to Pom, she didn't know what she'd have done. But then, if Jake truly did need his help, it's not like she could bring herself to disadvantage Jake by preventing Pom from accompanying him... "...It's your call," she said to Pom. "I really, really don't want you to go, but if you think Jake absolutely will need your help, I know you're gonna want to help him, right?"


As Jake reappeared downstairs, Luna idly flew up to him, head tilted, looking at him curiously. She did this for about a minute before finally speaking up telepathically, directing her words to Jake and Jake alone. Something's bothering you, she said, and it didn't sound like a guess. Something you're afraid to tell your friends. You fear their reactions. If I may offer my advice? Tell someone. It doesn't have to be me, but it should be someone you can trust. My recommendation would be Keith, but it's up to you, as long as it's somebody.



The disguises had failed completely. Keith hastened to grab his Poké Balls before Lucario's Foresight landed, and was able to stop them from clattering to the floor like Jake's. He hastened to replace them upon his actual belt, just as Jake sent out a very familiar face- in spite of the situation, Keith couldn't help but smile as he saw his old Tauros. That smile, however, was short-lived as the man spoke up. He spoke of his family founding the lab, cluing the Trainers into the fact that this was Steven, a Team Catalyst admin. Keith scowled as Steven accused them of spitting on his grandfather's legacy. "The only thing we spit on is the heinous abomination you already twisted your grandfather's legacy into," Keith retorted. "A better future will be one where Team Catalyst falls!" He then whipped out his Pokédex and pointed it at the Pokémon Steven had sent out.

"Mawile, the Deceiver Pokémon. A Steel and Fairy-type," said the Pokédex. "Mawile's gigantic jaws are actually steel horns that have transformed. It uses its cute real face to lure in prey before snapping at them with its large mouth."

While Vernon was targeting Mawile, Mawile was targeting Peeves with a devastating Crunch, while Lucario was going for the Close Combat on the Tauros. "Peeves! Disable!" Keith commanded. "Hold Mawile still, give Vernon an easy target and stop that Crunch! Then intercept that Close Combat with your Dynamic Punch!" Peeves nodded and started to go for Disable, pausing only to quickly pull Keith's backpack and Mega Hat out of himself, and hand them back to their rightful owner. Keith replaced both items on his back and head respectively, while Peeves proceeded to attack.

With quick thinking on Keith's part, Peeves managed to stop Mawile in it's tracks, disabling it's movements entirely!
Taking advantage of his opponents petrified state, Vernon began to amass fire energy in his mouth, before unleashing a stream of flames at Mawile! With the deceiver Pokemon still incapable of movement, Mawile was forced to take the full power of the Tauros attack!

Eager to contribute to the battle, Lucario charged towards Vernon, ready to lash out at the Tauros. But Peeves was prepared for this too. With the Lucario's guard already down, the Dusknoir delivered a powerful blow to it, sending the aura Pokemon flying backwards!
As the Lucario slowly rose to it's feet, it was clear to see it's health level was critically low. One good hit would surely be enough to end the aura Pokemon. What's more, Lucario seemed to be quite confused after being hit by Peeves last attack.

Vernon gave a grunt of approval towards his former teammate, before turning his attention to Mawile once more. His horns glowing white, Vernon charged towards the deceiver Pokemon, before slamming into it with great force!
The power of the attack left Mawile's defenses damaged, allowing for Vernon and Peeve's physical attacks to be more effective.

"Vernon go for another Flamethrower on Mawile. T-then...use Stone Edge on Lucario!" Jake ordered, before glancing at Keith, wondering just what the Poison-type specialist had planned.

Keith grinned as the battle started going their way. Mawile and Lucario were both weakened, while neither Peeves nor Vernon had taken any damage. Jake had given Vernon more orders, and from the looks of Lucario, it wasn't standing up to much more... though, being both Fighting and Steel, it could in fact stand up to Rock moves, even one as powerful as Stone Edge. Could it stand up to Stone Edge when this weakened, though? Keith wasn't sure. For now, though, he decided to put most of the focus on Mawile, though he'd have Peeves jump in if Lucario threatened to be a problem.

"Alright, Peeves, use Fire Punch on Mawile!" he ordered. "And if Lucario withstands that Stone Edge, finish it with Seismic Toss!"



"Do you think you'd like to try?" Pomona asked. "We have a swimming pool."

Cassiepoia nodded "why not."
Frighya streatched "now what?"

"No problem." Telpo smiled. "And I'm glad you like it. Truth be told, I was actually kind of worried you wouldn't." The Abra confessed, before noticing that his trainer had returned.

"I guess that's my signal to leave...farewell for now Millicent. Though I'm sure we'll see each other soon." Telpo said, giving the Timburr a final wave, before floating over to his trainer.
----
"Then I won't go." Pom said, shaking his head. "I don't want to make you worry, and I certainly don't want to tear us apart by being reckless."
"Jake should be ok if I don't go... I'll probably try and get Vermillion to take my place. He's a Torkoal, but if you tempt him with food..well I think he'll be strong enough to take my spot." Pom added.
----
Jake let out an audible sigh as Luna approached him, stating that something was wrong, before suggesting that he tell someone, her recommendation being Keith.
He had to wonder, was there a sign on his forehead, telling people to talk to him about his problems?
"N-no...I think you're mistaken." Jake replied. "Nothings bothering me..I-I'm fine. N-normal. Yep."
It was at this moment that Hazel, Tessa and Shibo made their way downstairs. Thankful for the distraction, Jake turned to address the arrival of his Pokemon.

"O-oh..good. You're back..Hazel, Tessa...and S-Shibo? I-I thought you had a-already returned to your Pokeball..." Jake murmured. "Regardless, Hazel..I-I'm assuming this is e-everyone?"

"Yep." Hazel nodded.

"Alright." Jake smiled as he took out an ordinary Pokeball, as well as a gold plated one.

"Tessa, Shibo r-return." He said, returning the Cosplay Pikachu and Lickitung to their Pokeballs.
Returning them to his bag, Jake then turned his attention to Pom, who was still talking to Cyanide.
"I-I'll wait till they're done." Jake explained to Hazel and Telpo.

----
After Keith had called out his orders, it fell to Steven to issue some to his Pokemon.
"Mawile use Sucker Punch on Dusknoir. Lucario go with Reversal on Tauros!" Steven ordered.

This time it was Lucario who started the round! But in it's confused state, just what the aura Pokemon would do was anyone's guess! Charging it's entire body in an aura of fighting energy, Lucario rushed towards what it perceived to be the enemy in an act of desperation.
Vernon let out a loud cry as the aura Pokemon smashed into the Tauros, effectively cutting his health levels in half!

Though Lucario's attack had done quite the number to Vernon, the Tauros was still determined as ever! Once again he began to gather fire energy in his mouth, before roasting Mawile with a steady stream of flames.

Next it was Peeves turn to attack! The Dusknoir was ready to deliver a flaming fist to Mawile, when the deceiver managed to get in a sneak attack! The attack managed to deal some good damage to Peeves, before the Dusknoir did the same to Mawile!

Angered by Lucario's earlier assault, Vernon let out a cry as he summoned several sharp stones around himself. The pointy rocks hovered around the Tauros, before flying straight towards Lucario. As it was pelted with stone after stone, Lucario let out one final cry, before toppling over in defeat.
"Lucario return." The Steven said as he withdrew the aura Pokemon, before placing it's Pokeball on his belt.
"I admit, you two are rather impressive. It's a shame you're using your skills in order to destroy this world." Steven said, shaking his head as he grabbed another Pokeball from his belt.

"No matter. I'll make sure to stop you here and now, before you can cause any more damage. Bisharp go!" Chris bellowed as he tossed the Pokeball into the air.
From the ball materialized the sword blade Pokemon. Much like Lucario, it gave the group a rather menacing look, as if it was ready to cut them all down.

"Bisharp use Night Slash on Dusknoir, then Brick Break on Tauros! Mawile go for a Bite on Dusknoir and Iron Head on Tauros." Steven barked.

"Vernon use Rock Smash on Bisharp. T-then go with a Tackle on Mawile." Jake ordered.

Determined to end it's opponents, Bisharp began to make it's way towards Peeves, one of it's arm blades cloaked in a veil of dark energy!

"Yay!" Pomona smiled. She led the way out of the kitchen and over to the pool room. In addition to the Blastoise, Feraligatr, and Tentacruel that could be seen underwater, a Qwilfish and a Dragalge could be seen swimming on the surface. As Pomona entered with Cassiopia, the Qwilfish Teleported out of the water, ending up in front of them. "Hi, Pomona," smiled Hebenon. "Who's your friend?"

"Hi, Hebenon!" smiled Pomona. "This is Cassiopia. Cassiopia, this is Hebenon."

"Nice to meet you," the Qwilfish said to Cassiopia.


"Goodbye, Telpo," Millicent responded- she gave Telpo a big hug before letting him float away.

Goodbye, Willow added. It was nice to see you again, Telpo.

Millicent then heard Freighya. "Oh, hey," she greeted the pink Eevee. "You're that friend of Cyanide's, aren't you? It's Freighya, right?"


Cyanide smiled gratefully at Pom. Part of her felt a bit selfish for not wanting Pom to go and help Jake with something so dangerous, but on the other hand, if this was indeed the same group responsible for that mind control stuff that happened to Pom last time... yeah, Cyanide would've been a nervous wreck if Pom had decided to accompany Jake with this. Then, she noted the mention of a gluttonous Torkoal named Vermilion. "...Why does that sound so familiar?" she murmured, thinking back. "Wait a sec... by any chance, would Vermilion be the type to steal food from someone, maybe even tell lies to trick others into helping him steal food?"


Luna tilted her head, looking at Jake's forehead. Nope, no sign, she stated, as though in response to his thoughts. It's just I can read your feelings just as clearly. What you say contradicts what you feel. Regardless, I'm bothering you, so I'm sorry about that, she added respectfully, before going silent.



Now Peeves and Venron started to take damage, the former from Mawile's Sucker Punch, and the latter from Lucario's Reversal. Nevertheless, Vernon's Stone Edge did the trick, knocking out Lucario. Keith grinned, impressed- Vernon was as strong as ever, if not stronger.

Keith scowled at Steven's claim. "You couldn't have it more backwards if you were an Inkay," he retorted. "We're trying to save the world here. From you clowns. Team Catalyst might have had good intentions once, but that's long since changed about you all, that much is clear." He then pointed his Pokédex at the Pokémon Steven then sent out.

"Bisharp, the Sword Blade Pokémon, and the evolved form of Pawniard. A Dark and Steel-type," said the Pokédex. "Bisharp commands a pack of Pawniard to fight in its stead, but will always insist on landing the finishing blow. It battles to become the boss of its group, but if it loses, it is cast out."

"The evolved form of Pawniard..." Keith murmured with interest, unaware of Ginny's distinct lack of interest in evolving. Not that he could exactly focus on that at the moment- a battle was taking place! "Alright, Peeves, intercept that Night Slash with Bind, and hold Bisharp still- give Vernon an easy target!" Keith stated. "Then keep hold of it and use your Seismic Toss attack- throw it straight into Mawile if you can!"

"Huh? Umm..yeah maybe." Pom replied. "I'm not one hundred percent sure, but with the way he's obsessed with filling his stomach..well I wouldn't be surprised. Why do you ask?"
----
Jake couldn't help but feel guilty, as well as a little freaked out, as Luna responded to his thoughts. Though it was true that he didn't want to be questioned on how he was feeling, he hadn't intended to hurt the Swoobat's feelings.
Still, if he apologized to the Swoobat, Jake figured that it would only encourage her to probe some more. Instead, he simply kept his eye on Pom for the time being.

----
"I could say the same about you two here." Steven scoffed in regards to Keith's Inkay comment.
"But it seems talk will get us nowhere." The man added, before turning his full attention to the battle at hand.

Bisharp continued it's charge at Peeves, before slashing at the Dusknoir for a super effective blow! In the process of doing so however, the sword blade Pokemon fell into Peeves grasp, unable to escape.
Taking advantage of the bind his opponent was in, Vernon charged towards the Bisharp, his horns glowing a bright white! Bisharp let out a loud cry as Vernon slammed into him, delivering a great deal of damage to him, as well as lowering his defense!
Eager to help their teammate out, Mawile lunged at Peeves, ready to bite down on the Ghost-type. What the deceiver didn't expect was for her teammate to come flying back at her. But that's exactly what happened as Peeves tossed Bisharp right into Mawile, dealing damage to the both of them!

Ready to perform his next attack, Vernon charged towards Mawile. At the same time, Mawile lunged into the air, before swinging her large, iron clad jaws at the Tauros. The two attacks clashed, but Mawile's proved to be more powerful, sending Vernon skidding backwards.
Following Mawile's attack, Bisharp made his way towards Vernon, before delivering a powerful chop to the Tauros skull! All in all, things weren't looking to good for the Tauros. It was quite clear that if things kept up the way they had, Vernon would fall quite quickly.

"H-hang in there Vernon! Use Rock Smash on Bisharp once more. Then g-go for a Strength attack." Jake ordered.

Once again it fell to Keith to make his orders. Just what did he have in mind this time?

"So, Cassiopia, wanna try swimming?" Pomona asked, before jumping into the pool. She was clearly not exactly the most skilled swimmer, but by no means was she failing at it, either- she was able to keep herself afloat with little trouble, at the very least.


"Cool," grinned Millicent. "I know I saw you here once before, but we ain't been properly introduced. Name's Millicent. This here is Willow," she added, gesturing to the wooden beam she carried over her shoulder.


"Because a while back, Melittin was ranting and raving about this chocolate sculpture his friend had given him- and Mel's about as good at making friends as I am, so yeah- only to see this Torkoal trying to steal it on him. Then, apparently, the Torkoal starts lying to one of his buddies to get him to fight Melittin to try and steal the chocolate, claiming Mel stole it from him," stated Cyanide. "And apparently that Torkoal's name was Vermilion."


Luna tilted her head once more. I didn't mean to give the impression that you hurt my feelings, she telepathically told Jake, a mildly apologetic tone to her telepathic voice. You do not need to apologize to me- as far as I'm concerned, there's no problem between us, she assured Jake with a friendly smile. And I promise I won't keep poking around in your thoughts if you don't want me to. OK?



Peeves's Bind/Seismic Toss maneuver went off without a hitch, though both Mawile and Bisharp were still standing when all was said and done. Moreover, Vernon was taking lots of damage- it was very quickly falling to Peeves to get this battle over and done with. "Peeves, use Power-Up Punch on Bisharp!" Keith ordered. "Then hold Mawile with Disable and hit it with Focus Punch!"

Cassieopia nodded and carefully lowered herself into the water. It took her a minuet but she was able to stay afloat pretty easilly.
Frieghya smiled "nice to meet you too."

Pom let out a small sigh as Cyanide explained the situation to the Ambipom. Apparently a teammate of hers had been ranting about a Torkoal, who had been trying to steal a chocolate statue a friend had made him.
The Torkoal had even managed to convince one of his friends to fight Melittin, claiming that he had stolen the food from the Torkoal. The Torkoal who had done this went by Vermillion.

"Yeah...I think it's safe to say that's him." Pom replied reluctantly. "I know it's not my fault..but I still feel awful regardless."
Pausing for a moment, Pom took the opportunity to glance around the room, where he noticed his trainer patiently waiting.
"Well..it looks like Jake's back...I guess that means I've got to get going. Sorry I couldn't stay longer." Pom apologized.
"Hopefully we'll see each other again before long though."
----
Jake was once again caught off guard as Luna responded to his thoughts. Though much to his relief, the Swoobat didn't seem offended at all, stating that there was no problem between them. She then offered to stop poking around in his thoughts.

"Oh umm...thanks." Jake replied, giving a small nod as he did so. Truth be told, he was more then a little anxious at the Swoobat's ability.
What would have happened if he had been focusing on his problems right at that moment? Or was worrying about thinking about them going to allow Luna to read them crystal clear?
Luckily Jake's thoughts on the matter were soon interrupted as Hayai approached him.
He had totally forgotten that he had yet to return the Zebstrika, but immediately went to correct this by tapping the thunderbolt Pokemon with it's Pokeball, before returning the ball to his bag. Now the only one he was waiting for was Pom.

----
"Bisharp go with Slash, then Revenge, both on Tauros! Mawile, use Iron Defense!" Steven bellowed.

This time it was Mawile who started the round off! Concentrating hard, the deciever Pokemon began to surround herself in a silver aura, patching her defense, as well as boosting it past what it ordinarily was.

Meanwhile, Bisharp charged towards Vernon, the blade on it's right arm glowing with energy! At the same time, Vernon made his way towards Bisharp, his horns also glowing with power. The two attacks clashed, though Vernon proved stronger, sending Bisharp stumbling backwards!
To make matters worse for the sword blade Pokemon, Peeves swung his fist at Bisharp, landing a highly effective attack, as well as boosting the Dusknoir's attack power!

But Bisharp wasn't ready to give up yet! In an act of revenge for the Tauros earlier actions, Bisharp lunged at Vernon, his body surrounded in fighting energy!
As the sword blade Pokemon slammed into him, Vernon let out a sharp cry, before falling to the floor. It seemed that last attack had been too much for the Tauros.

Back with Peeves and Mawile, the Dusknoir had successfully managed to lock the deciever Pokemon into place. Unable to move, Mawile could only watch as Peeves began to focus an extreme amount of energy into his fist, before delivering a powerful punch to her!
Even with Mawile's extra defense and Peeve's extra attack countering each other out, it seemed the attack had still done some hefty damage!

"Vernon, return." Jake said as he returned the Tauros to his Pokeball. With Vernon off the field, Jake now had the tough decision of which Pokemon he was to pick next.
From how the battle had been going, it was clear to see that Steven specialized in Steel-types. Knowing this, Vermillion or Dusty would be his best picks.

"Dusty..y-you're on!" Jake called as he tossed another Pokeball in front of him. From the ball emerged a Vibrava, who seemed very eager to battle, if the look she was giving Steven was anything to go by.

With another round about to begin, Jake began to quickly survey the Pokemon in battle. With both Bisharp and Mawile sustaining some powerful blows last round, neither of them seemed like they'd last much longer.
At the same time, the long use of Disable in turn with Focus Punch was sure to leave Peeves a bit tired at the least.

"Dusty, use Dragon Breath on Bisharp. T-then Mud Slap on Mawile!" Jake ordered.
"Bisharp, Night Slash and Payback on Dusknoir! Mawile go with Crunch and Payback on Dusknoir!" Zack barked.

Both eager to get their revenge on Peeves, Mawile and Bisharp charged towards the Dusknoir, ready for an all out assault!

Pomona and Hebenon watched as Cassiopia carefully entered the water. She managed to keep herself afloat without trouble. "Yay!" the Ivysaur smiled. "So far so good! Wanna try moving around in the water now?" she asked, swimming around as she spoke, kicking with her hind legs.


"Eh, no need to feel bad," Cyanide shook her head. "From what Mel says, he was able to eat the chocolate before they actually got a chance to take it, so apparently it all worked out." Then, Pom noticed that Jake was ready to leave, and apologized for not being able to stay longer. In response, Cyanide walked right up to Pom and kissed him. "I hope so too," she smiled. She nuzzled Pom affectionately, for as long as she'd be able to before he had to go back to Jake.


Luna gave Jake a nod in response, and stopped focusing on his thoughts. Of course, she guessed he might be worried as to whether she could tell the exact nature of his problems. And indeed, she figured, she could very likely do that, but she had already promised to stop poking around in Jake's thoughts and feelings, and she intended to keep that promise. She still wondered what exactly was bothering Jake, though, and hoped he'd at least bear her advice in mind.



The battle was heating up, and Bisharp knocked Vernon clean out with a Revenge attack. Peeves was still in the air, but Keith saw how the Dusknoir was moving- everything he's been doing thus far had been very tiring on him, and as Keith and Peeves exchanged glances and brief nods, they were in complete understanding- the Dusknoir knew he wouldn't withstand this next onslaught of attacks, but he at least wanted to go down fighting.

And Keith was willing to help make that happen. "Peeves! Hyper Beam!" he commanded. The Dusknoir responded with a devastating purple-black beam of pure destructive force, aimed right at Mawile, though this would leave him wide open to the Dark-type moves that would undoubtedly KO him.

Pom couldn't help but blush as Cyanide gave him a kiss, before nuzzling him affectionately.
"Yeah..." He murmured as Cyanide also expressed her hope of seeing each other soon.
Though he didn't want his time with Cyanide to end, he knew he couldn't keep his trainer waiting much longer.
He had figured that Jake wouldn't want to stick around too long, but had hoped otherwise. But that was selfish of him, wasn't it? After all, Jake hadn't expressed any interest in going, having only shown up for Telpo and him.
"Well...until then, see ya." Pom said, giving Cyanide one last wave, before walking over to his trainer.
----
"Oh Pom...you're ready? I-I hope I didn't rush you." Jake muttered.
"No it's fine. I was just thinking that it was about time to leave." Pom lied, shaking his head as he did so.
"Alright..t-then let's be off." Jake said, before making his way to the exit, the others following shortly behind.
Once he had reached the sliding, Jake turned back, ready to give everyone one a final goodbye.
He quickly stopped himself however, realizing that in doing so, he'd only bring more attention to himself. Instead he made his way out of the Pokemon Center without another word, his Pokemon following soon afterwards.

----
Realizing that Peeves wouldn't be able to take the incoming flurry of attacks, Keith ordered the Dusknoir to use Hyper Beam. Following his trainer's orders, Peeves blasted the oncoming Mawile with a powerful beam of energy!
In doing so, Peeves left himself wide open to Bisharp's powerful Night Slash!

Eager to get in on the action, Dusty sent out a stream of blue flames from her mouth, which managed to envelop Bisharp, though it seemed to have little effect.

What happened next was an all out assault on Peeves. With Bisharp hitting him with a Payback attack, and Mawile with both Crunch and Payback, Peeves had no hope of surviving so many super effective attacks!

Once Mawile was done attacking the Dusknoir, she decided to take a small break, leaving herself wide open to Dusty's attack.
Taking advantage of this, Dusty spat out a small amount of mud at the deciever Pokemon! Unaware of the flying projectile, Mawile let out a loud shriek at the surprise attack, before toppling over in defeat.

"Mawile. Return." Steven said as he returned the deciever Pokemon to her Pokeball. By now, it was clear to Steven that he was in a tight spot.
Both his opponents had only lost one Pokemon, while he had already lost two, with Bisharp being dangerously close to fainting as well.

"I will not be bested by some rouges such as yourselves. I can not lose..I mustn't..." Steven said, before tossing another Pokeball in front of him.
Emerging from the ball was an Aggron, who let out a mighty roar as he sized up his opponents. What was curious however, was the arm band the iron armor Pokemon was wearing. From the looks of it, a strange stone was set inside of it...

"Aggron! These two terrible people mean to threaten the future we strive to achieve!" Steven exclaimed, producing a strange badge from his pocket as he did so.
"We can not allow them to steal our future...one of a better world. As such..I call on you to..Mega Evolve!" Steven exclaimed, before pressing the rainbow stone within the center of the badge.
Upon doing so, tendrils of energy shot out of the badge, linking to Aggron's band. It was then that the iron armor Pokemon began to transform! It began to grow bulkier, and a third horn began to grow on the center of it's head. Spikes poked out from each of it's arms, and it's tail grew even thicker.

"Steven...so h-he's also capable of mega evolution." Jake murmured as he watched the Aggron complete it's transformation.

"I suggest you two give up now, for Aggron shares the same determination I do, one for a better future for all." Chris explained.
"Together, we'll do anything in our power to stop a bunch of lowlifes such as you from ruining our goal."

Cyanide watched as Pom walked away. And as Jake turned to face the room before leaving, Luna waved to him, as did Millicent, though he did not respond, merely exiting the building.

Millicent then turned back to Freighya, but before she could speak, it was Willow who spoke next. And it is nice to meet you as well, Freighya.



The end result was no surprise- though Peeves had landed a massive hit with Hyper Beam, the resulting Dark moves knocked him clean out. However, his efforts were not in vain, for Dusty was able to finish off Mawile, the Mud-Slap being the straw that broke the Numel's back.

Keith held out the Poké Ball. "Come back now, Peeves!" he declared, withdrawing the defeated Dusknoir. "Take a rest- you did good, man," he grinned, replacing the ball on his belt.

Steven then sent out his next Pokémon- an Aggron. However, something about this Aggron caught Keith's eye, and not in a good way. "...Oh, crap," he groaned, seeing the stone set into Aggron's arm band. And sure enough, it was an Aggronite, and Steven knew how to use it- before they knew it, the formidable form of Mega Aggron stood before them, a formidable presence indeed. But, Keith knew, Mega Evolution did not make a Pokémon invincible. He briefly considered responding in kind, but Melittin would be more often than not striking Aggron's nigh-impenetrable physical Defense. No, he needed to hit where it would hurt. Special attacks. Super effective special attacks.

With this in mind, Keith plucked the Level Ball off his belt, enlarged it, and threw it into the fray. "Here's the next one- Kyle!" he exclaimed, as the ball split open, unleashing a Heatmor, who warily eyed the Mega Evolved Steel-type before them.

"Mor..." Kyle murmured, glancing back at Keith.

Keith nodded. "We're counting on you, Kyle- let's stop this fiend!"

"Heatmor!" Kyle nodded emphatically, turning back to face Mega Aggron.

"OK, then!" grinned Keith. "Kyle, Flamethrower, let's go! Then hit it with a Focus Blast, and follow up with Fire Spin!"

With Keith's Heatmor focusing on Aggron, Jake turned his attention to Bisharp.
"Dusty, use Bug Buzz and Mud Slap on Bisharp." Jake ordered.
"Bisharp, go with Stone Edge on Heatmor. Follow with Night Slash on Vibrava! Aggron use Head Smash on Heatmor and Dragon Claw on Vibrava!" Steven barked.

Dusty flew towards Bisharp at a great speed, before beating her wings towards her opponent! From her wings green sound waves shot out, striking the sword blade Pokemon and dealing a decent amount of damage.
But Bisharp didn't seem too focused on the vibration Pokemon, instead turning his attention to Kyle.
With a cry, Bisharp summoned several sharp stones around itself! The rocks floated around Bisharp for only a moment, before flying towards Kyle, striking the Heatmor with a super effective blow!

Next it was Kyle's turn to attack! The Heatmor was quick to unleash a jet of fire towards Aggron, scorching the iron armor Pokemon. Despite this, the Aggron looked as if it hadn't taken as much damage as it should have.
It seemed Aggron's thick armor had Filtered out some of the attacks power! Letting out a loud roar, Aggron charged towards Kyle, it's head surrounded in a large amount of rock energy!
The iron armor Pokemon then slammed into the Heatmor, dealing an extraordinary amount of damage! But in it's reckless charge, Aggron hadn't considering it's only safety, and had ended up suffering some considerable damage in the process!

As Kyle continued to launch powerful attacks at Aggron, Bisharp took the chance to attack Dusty! Coating it's arm in a dark aura, Bisharp ran towards Dusty, striking the vibration Pokemon with it's energy infused blade!
In retaliation, Dusty spat out a small amount of mud at Bisharp.

With Kyle's assault over, Aggron turned it's attention to Dusty. Surrounding it's claw in draconic energy, Aggron slashed at the vibration Pokemon, causing her to cry out in pain.

With the round over, Jake could clearly see that Bisharp was left barely standing. At the same time, Kyle's onslaught of attacks had left Aggron looking tired, though it seemed the iron armor Pokemon still had some energy left in it.
But after being hit with a super effective Stone Edge and Head Smash, Jake couldn't help but worry about the condition Kyle was in. Most of Dusty's ground type attacks were unusable indoors, so Kyle was currently their main source of damage to Aggron...

"Aggron Stone Edge and Headbutt on Heatmor! Bisharp go with Shadow Claw and Slash on Vibrava!" Steven shouted.

"Dusty, use Bide." Jake ordered.
With everyone else ready to go, it now fell on Keith to call out his orders.

"Yay!" Pomona exclaimed as her friend started to get the hang of swimming around. "Isn't this fun?" she asked, now swimming alongside Cassiopia.


Willow gave a warm chuckle at Freighya's astonishment. I'm Willow, she said. I'm a ghost inhabiting the log Millicent carries around, she explained.

"Me and Willow are like sisters," added Millicent.



Keith didn't look worried as Kyle was hit by some powerful Rock moves. It'd take more than that, much more than that, to take out this Heatmor, he knew. Indeed, the fact that Kyle was still standing served to prove Keith's confidence to have basis in fact. But even so, Keith knew, it would be a decent idea to play things a bit more defensively as well. And with Dusty poised to deal with Bisharp, Keith knew this left Mega Aggron up to him and Kyle. The two shared another knowing nod, both in agreement on how to proceed.

"Alright, Kyle, Double Team! Evade that Stone Edge!" Keith ordered. "When it comes in for Headbutt, hit it with Inferno at point-blank range, and if it's still standing after that, let it taste your Fire Blast!"

Though Keith didn't hear exactly what had even happened, enough was said in the following exchange for him to piece it together- Marion had made use of a recently introduced service. Namely, the new ability to remove one's starter Pokémon from one's team, something unheard of prior to this new Elite Four. She had dropped Minerva from her team. Certainly he could see Marion's side of things- Minerva becoming human would, of course, mean that she'd pretty much have to be dropped as Marion's starter. But on the other hand, Minerva was very clearly taking this quite hard. Keith held onto Minerva as she leaned into him- she was getting support from him, both physically and emotionally.

Then, the argument reached a boiling point- Minerva appeared to have struck a nerve by accusing Marion of disowning her, and the Ghost-type specialist was very clearly fed up. She declared she was done with Minerva, heaved Liliana's ball at Minerva with entirely unnecessary force, and wheeled around with the intention of storming out. It was this that spurred Keith into action- he was not about to let things end like this between two sisters who loved each other.

"Marion, hold on a second," he said, still holding Minerva close to him. "Look... The one thing Minerva wants, the biggest reason she's doing what she's doing... Between Halloween of 2012, and whatever went down when she got her memories back, she doesn't want to risk hurting loved ones anymore, and she wanted, more than anything, to reconcile with you. And then, this being the first time she sees you in I don't even know how long, and you bring her news of this nature before pretty much anything else... I mean, even considering why you're doing it, you have to admit it doesn't exactly scream 'touching family moment', you know what I mean? She just wants her sister back, is what I'm trying to say," said Keith. "It's not about the Secret Base or the pardons or any of that- she just wants some reassurance that you'd welcome her back into your life, that even if you won't call her your starter, you'd still call her your sister. And I want you two to have each other, too, for that matter. I've seen how you two have interacted in the past, I've seen enough of it to know you two really love and care about each other," he stated, the utmost of conviction and sincerity in his tone.
Marion pauses at Keith's bid for her to wait, though her expression only darkens further as she listens to his words. Attempting to maintain the composure expected of her in her new role, she grits her teeth and forces herself to stand straight, hold firm. Before she can speak, however, Bedivere places a warm tart in her hand with one tentacle, and raises another to indicate that he wishes to speak.

"If I may -" The jovial Jellicent motions respectfully to Keith. "When Lady Aislyn and I came to beseech your aid, we believed our worst fear to be that your dearest one would kill our lady - the Valiant August fought Lady Minerva off on her own while we were making our fateful visit, nearly at the cost of her own life, but such chivalrous engagements leave the victor that much stronger... And the noble-blooded dragon's strength has only increased - of that, I have no doubt, ohohoho~" He pulls a bottle of wine out of the picnic basket and uncorks it, after some struggling with his slippery appendages. "We thought her unscathed, at the time, but our lady became... not herself, and has not been herself for a long time. She left the Duke's abode without a word one night, fearing for his life even more than her own. She grew thin - would not sleep - would not eat that which I did not expressly prepare for her -"

"Bedivere, dearheart, that's enough," Marion cuts him off, as gently as she can muster. Bedivere offers her a freshly poured glass of wine.

"My lady, do stay, and speak with your friends. Have something to eat, and to drink. Let your heart recall the times when it was merry."

August snorts and rolls her eyes. Marion, with no small measure of sadness, shakes her head and refuses the wine.

"We must look to the future now," Marion says with an air of finality. "Speaking of which, I have other pressing matters to which I must attend -"

"Mary -" Minerva reaches her hand out to her, her expression pleading. "Listen to Bedivere. Stay, for just a little while -"

Marion remains rooted to her spot, unsure. Bedivere joyfully pours Minerva a glass of wine (which she begins drinking immediately, prompting a refill from the Jellicent), and offers Keith a glass, as well.

"A bit of a young wine for my taste - only five years aged," Bedivere remarks. "The grapes were picked on Halloween night, or so I was told, ohohohoho~"

Any response on Marion's part was delayed by Bedivere. He handed Marion a tart before politely requesting a turn to speak. Keith nodded, of course he would let Bedivere speak. And speak Bedivere did- that one time he and Aislyn briefly arrived at Hyrem's Secret Base, they had feared that Marion would get killed by Minerva. Apparently, August had fought off Minerva, a battle that had nearly cost the Dragonite her life, and while Marion appeared unscathed by the experience, she had indeed been changed by it. Marion cut him off before he could get into too much detail on this, but after that, Bedivere asked that Marion stay, spend some time with her friends. August seemed less than amused by this notion, and Marion did not sound all that willing to stick around. Minerva took this chance to speak up, pleading with Marion to stay.

"Please, Marion, stay," Keith added, accepting the glass of wine Bedivere offered him. He paused to take a sip, before continuing. "You're always more than welcome here, and I know some of my Pokémon would love to see you again." As if to drive the point home, a Mightyena wandered into the hallway, his tail wagging upon spotting Marion. Keith smiled at the sight of Sirius, before continuing. "Why don't we all go in and have a seat?" he offered, gesturing to the living room.

Cassieopia smiled slowly "Yes it is..." she mused.
Frieghya looked interested "Oh that makes sense I guess. How did you two meet?"

Starting off the round, Dusty began to fly in place, bracing herself for Bisharp's incoming attacks. As she did so, a aura of energy began to surround her, ready to absorb the power of any attack that struck!

Bisharp didn't seem to bothered by this, instead the sword blade Pokemon surrounded one of it's arms in a spectral aura, before swinging it at Dusty!

Next it was Aggron's turn to strike! The iron armor Pokemon let out another roar, before summoning several sharp stones, which began to float around it. The rocks then flew towards Kyle, ready to stab into the Heatmor's flesh!
But Kyle had other ideas, and began moving back and forth to several locations. Eventually there wasn't just one Heatmor, but three instead!
As this happened, the sharp stones drew ever closer, before pelting Kyle with it's sharp ends. In doing so, Kyle disappeared entirely...wait no, the Stone Edge had hit a clone!

Completely distraught at Kyle's antics, Aggron charged towards the anteater Pokemon, head first! However, Aggron wasn't able to hit his target, for as he approached Kyle, the Heatmor let loose a cyclone of flames!
Unable to react in time, Aggron ran directly into the powerful fire attack, causing it to let out a mighty shriek, before toppling to the ground.
Upon doing so Steven's Aggron began to glow, before returning to it's original form.

Meanwhile, having just sustained a powerful Slash from Bisharp, Dusty fired off a beam from the energy she'd been gathering! The beam of energy blasted into Bisharp, knocking the swordblade Pokemon backwards onto the floor.

"Bisharp! Aggron!!!" Steven shouted as both his Pokemon remained on the floor.

"N-no..this can't be...I-I've been...defeated?" Steven murmured as he returned his Pokemon to their Pokeballs.

"It's over Steven. N-now.. let us go..o-or I'll have Dusty make you." Jake stammered.

Steven said nothing to the young trainers threat, instead looking to his feet. Was he considering it? Jake couldn't really tell. Suddenly Steven's attention turned to the tracker, as if he had just noticed something.
It was strange..but Jake noticed it as well. It was the sound of the wind...and it was growing in power. Before Jake or Steven could question the source of the noise, a pink ball of energy appeared from no where, smashing into the tracker!

"Main tracker unit down! Main tracker unit down!" A robotic voice shrieked.
It seemed Peeve's Future Sight had landed..destroying the tracker entirely. The only problem, was that Jake and Keith were still trapped inside the building.

"The tracker!" Steven exclaimed. "No..no...no no no no! This can't be happening! Both trackers...they're gone!"
"You! Do you two have any idea what you've done?!" Steven hollered.
"I'd been going easy on you two before..hoping that you two would realize the errors of your ways. But I see now that I've been nothing but a fool." Steven continued, pulling out another remote as he did so.
As he began to fiddle with the device, Dusty suddenly let out a harsh cry, turning Jake's attention to the vibration Pokemon.

"Dusty? What's wrong?" Jake questioned.
In response, Dusty spat out a small amount of mud at her trainer, the projectile narrowly flying over his head! The vibration Pokemon the began to violently flail
around, as if she had completely lost control of her own body. Jake had seen this before, twice actually. Pom and his friends Eelektrik had behaved like this. But both times, they were under some kind of mind control, which meant...

"Isn't this beautiful?" Steven questioned. "Bare witness to all my years of research. With this little machine, all of your Pokemon are now under my control, Jake."
"But I really must thank you. Without your kind donation of Pokemon, this wouldn't have been possible. Your Pokemon were such good test subjects while under my care." Steven cackled.

"I-I'll kill you!" Jake spat.

"Really? More threats? There's no need to be so upset." Steven said, letting out a small sigh. "Just sit back and relax as your Pokemon help Catalyst secure our victory."
"Now Vibrava, use Dragon Breath and Mud Slap on Heatmor!" Steven barked.

Pomona smiled, happily swimming with her friend.


"Well, it was back when I was in the Adoption Center," said Millicent. "I, uh... I was kinda lonely, and nobody wanted to adopt me, and... well, Willow wound up being there for me when I really needed someone, and we've been inseparable ever since," she smiled, hugging her log.



Keith grinned- Kyle's Inferno had finished off Aggron, and Dusty's Bide blew away Bisharp. And to top it all off, Peeves's Future Sight landed, completely destroying the tracker. Steven didn't take any of this very well, to put it mildly. "Yeah, we know what we did," Keith retorted. "Just like we know you'll let us out of here, whether you want to or not."

But Steven didn't seem to plan on that. He claimed to have been going easy on them, in the hopes that they would see the error of their ways (cue derisive snort from Keith at this point), before producing another remote control and fiddling with it. This wiped the grin right off of Keith's face, for in response to the device, Dusty started acting weird, the Vibrava turning on her Trainer and firing a Mud-Slap at him! Keith looked at Steven, looking outraged and appalled as the Catalyst Admin explained that he had just put all of Jake's Pokémon under his control. Moreover, his next words implied that he was behind the kidnapping of Jake's Pokémon several years back.

At that exact moment, back at Keith's Secret Base, Cyanide felt an inexplicable stab of rage. She couldn't say why, but she had the strangest feeling it had to do with whoever had kidnapped Pom that one time.

Keith had some serious problems on his hands- now Kyle had Dusty to worry about, about to be on the receiving end of his ally's attacks! "Kyle, quick, Protect!" Keith ordered.

"Heatmor!" Kyle exclaimed, casting a protective barrier around himself to deflect the Dragon Breath.

"Now use Substitute!" Keith added. "Keep her occupied until we can fix this. And Kyle- don't hurt Dusty," he urged the Heatmor.

"Mor," Kyle nodded.

Keith then turned to Steven, a look of pure rage on his face. "You kidnapped my friend's Pokémon," he said. "You use them to conduct research into this Pokémon mind control and you decide you're going to up and control Jake's Pokémon to get your insane goals accomplished? And you call us the bad guys?" He said all of this with a somehow frightening sort of calmness. "You. You Team Catalyst scumbags, you preach this 'making the world better' thing, and maybe there was a time when you honestly believed it, but nothing you're doing here is going to lead to a better world. What you're doing here goes way past criminal- it's reprehensible. You are the one spitting on your grandfather's legacy, twisting it, mangling it into this horror show to accomplish your own ends, and not giving a Raticate's ass who you step on in the process!" He clutched another Poké Ball as he spoke. "And I won't let you do it!" he declared. "Bart, let's go!" he exclaimed, throwing the ball.

A flash of light erupted from the ball, and Keith's Scrafty materialized, wearing his usual Black Glasses. Notably, he stood five feet tall, decidedly taller than the average Scrafty. "Scrrrrafty!" he exclaimed, glaring at Steven.

"Bart, grab the remote from that guy," Keith stated, pointing at Steven.

"Scrrrrraft," growled Bart, the Scrafty slowly approaching Steven, putting on a particularly Scary Face as he did so. Of course, if he was having trouble, he'd simply exercise his superior Strength to forcefully take the remote, and if necessary, he figured a nice Low Kick might make this thug more compliant. Only if necessary, of course.

Jake was completely off guard as Keith ordered his Heatmor not to attack Dusty. He was glad Keith was looking out for the Vibrava, and yet..he couldn't help but worry that this would noyl make things more difficult.

Meanwhile, Steven seemed somewhat annoyed as Keith began to berate the Catalyst admin in a chillingly calm voice.
"Yeah yeah, we're the evil ones..sure buddy." Steven scoffed. "The way I see it, you two broke in to my facility, before trashing the place. For a couple of heroes, you sure seem intent on destroying other people's property."
"I'm simply defending this laboratory from two vandals who think breaking and entering is no big deal." Steven explained. "

Upon Keith commanding Bart to snatch Steven's remote, two of Jake's Pokeballs suddenly burst open. From them, Bubbles and Vermillion appeared, the Corphish and Torkoal quickly taking Steven's side.
"Corphish, Torkoal..keep that Scrafty at bay, no matter the cost! Vibrava keep that Heatmor occupied!" Steven barked.

In response, Bubbles sent a Beam of Bubbles from one of her claws, straight towards Bart! In contrast, Vermillion stayed next to Steven, ready to attack Bart with a Skull Bash should he come too close.

Meanwhile, Dusty let loose another Dragon Breath attack, scorching Kyle's substitute but leaving the Heatmor unharmed. She then prepared to unleash yet another Mud Slap at the Heatmor dummy....

With Jake's Pokemon having heard their orders, Steven turned his attention back to Keith.
"Though I admit that kidnapping Pokemon may be a bit unethical..I can assure you we have our reasons. Once this little experiment is finished, we'll be able to freely control and stop any Pokemon that may cause people trouble." Steven explained.
"It's a short term sacrifice for the greater good of all. Of course..you fiends would rather leave these trouble making Pokemon to run amok if i had to guess."

Jake was forced to watch as his Pokemon turned against him, fighting their former allies in the process. What else could he do? Three of his Pokemon were already in Steven's grasp, and Jake reasoned it wouldn't be long before Telpo and Neku followed.
Wait...that was it! Last time one of his Pokemon was in a frenzy, Neku's Sweet Scent had managed to snap them out of it! The only problem was that now Neku was also completely brainwashed. And yet..Pom had managed to resist the mind control back them..if only for a brief moment.
If Jake could get the Oddish to hit himself with the attack...it just might work.

It was definitely a long shot, but with little choice Jake tossed the Oddish's Pokeball into the air.
Just as Steven had said, as soon as Neku appeared, he immediately attacked his trainer, following the Catalyst admin's will.

"Neku! L-listen to me. You....you need to snap out of it!" Jake called to the Oddish.

In response, Neku sent a ball of acid towards his trainer, the attack flying just over Jake's head. It seemed his plan wasn't working quite as well as he had hoped...
