Interlude: Platinum Recollection - Cyrus!
Mari: Why do you girls make Celadon so hard for the boys to win badges from?
Picnicker: We don't do this all the time, only when we need to change our clothes or do some Girls Only Things.
Mari: Is that why the Gym Groupie isn't around?
Beauty: That, and also because he always, always gets hooked on the slots here when he comes around.
Mari: He didn't seem so hooked in Goldenrod.
Beauty: That's because his Lucky
machine is here in Celadon.
Mari: Do we have to spar before I face Erika?
Lass: If you want to. (draws pokeballs
) Want a little warmup?
(As Mari and the Lass face off, we turn back the clock to Sinnoh...)
("Sinnoh" - Distortion World
Renko: This realm is wierd
Carla: Nnnn, nnn (sniff). (You're telling me! I don't even know I'm smelling in this place, the scents are so ALIEN!
Cyrus: You will not stop me. Neither will Cynthia, and neither will Giratina.
Carla: Create a new universe if you want, but leave our own unharmed!
Cyrus: I would if I could. Unfortunately, all the energy and mass I require must come from somewhere
, and sacrifices must be made in the pursuit of a greater perfection. (draws Pokeball) As I have said, I will not yield.
Next: Mari vs a Lass! Renko vs Cyrus!
