ITT: We are all Pokémon Trainers:
Holon City"Oh right. It's true, my sister and I have both met Darkrai before and she even visits him sometimes, I can't prove it, though. Maybe next time I should take a picture of my sister and Darkrai together." said Sakura, quite casually "Taking a photo with a legendary, that would be interesting."
Ta-ValStyx: <Okay, I'm a Ghost, and I find this freaking creepy.> Chrome: <Something's messed with their minds...> Arika: But what?
Ta-Val CavernsSkye: Who knows... -The murmuring gets louder...- -And before long, the group finds the source of it, behind a caved-in chamber. It's the entire Ta-Val village's population- Eskay: Found them... but what could have— ???: <~Finally... you've finally found them...~> Skye: -looks around- What was that? ???: <~I'm sorry to say, but this ends for you all now.~> -And a red-and-purple Toxicroak jumps down. Anyone can see that its eyes seem glazed over, just like the other Pokemon in the caves.- -Except for Eskay, who is too terrified to focus on the details- Eskay: ... -It starts to advance toward him- Eskay: ~Nononono, this isn't happening...~ -He clenches his fists- Eskay: ~Dammit, why can't I move!?~ -Everything seems to happen in slow motion: It leaps. Spectrum flies toward it. She Dragon Tails it away...- -...Just after it manages to leave a huge gash in Eskay's chest.- Skye: No! Eskay! -Spectrum keeps attacking the Toxicroak, Femata watches the scene. Only she doesn't actually seem to be paying attention to it...- -Because a flood of memories is returning.- Femata: <...Skye, give me that armband of yours.> Skye: Um? Femata: -<Just do it! I can't help him like this, and I'm not letting my son die the same way I did!>
OrreVerax: -Jots down on his notepad- "Note... to self.... punch Mammor's... faaace." "And yeah, but that was mostly just recon and stuff. Nothing important, really."
Ta-Val CavernsEdge: -Looking at the murmuring Pokémon- <.... This is.... guys be ready to react.> Joy: -Scared by the lava in the caverns anyways, is nervously tip-toeing when she accidently looks into one of the blank-eyed stares <JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOY!!> -Jumps and cowers, before peeking, then nervously rushing after Edge- -Then, as Eskay is attacked and Femata responds- Edge: <What. Wait nevermind!> -Begins firing off clouds of Will-o-whips at the Toxicroak-

Ta-ValEveryone: ... WAIT, WHAT?! Styx: <...She's just...> Spick: <...Like us...>
OrreVerax: "You probably would. You're a Peon, as you said. Even if... eccentric. But remembering your place is something you need to do. And there's a reason you don't do recon. I'll tell what that is as soon as I remember it."
Orre-Mammor rounds the corner. It's apparent he's been listening for a bit- -snarky- Both good and bad.

Holon City, IsotopesAlice: ...I just asked you not to try and pay me for a fool. I would rather such a request be heeded. -She gets the bill, frowns, and leaves a wad of cash on the table before standing up.- Alice: Well, there is no reason for me to stay here. You can order dessert, if you want. -She walks out of the restaurant.-
Holon City-Kirk is wandering through one of the city parks, occasionally ExtremeSpeeding up nearby trees simply for the sake of doing so, when he encounters a familiar Weavile rummaging through some nearby berry bushes.- Kirk: <Hey, Ripley.> -The Weavile spins around, claws bared.- Ripley: <Gwah! I'm not doing any - oh, it's just you, Kirk. What do you need?> Kirk: <Gee, nice to see that you're glad to see me. I just figured I ought to say hi, since we haven't talked in ages.> Ripley: <Okay then. Hi. Is that enough? Will you go now?> Kirk: <Nope. Anyway, where's your trainer?> Ripley: <I might as well ask you the same question. We're both on the same team, aren't we?> Kirk: <Well... not really. After all, Herbert's not coming back, and last I checked the hyperactive blonde kid still had your ball. That technically makes him your trainer, doesn't it?> Ripley: <Does it? Good for him, I guess. It's not like it really matters to me anyway, since the kid just lets me do my own thing. Not that there's anything to do in this damn city. Last time I saw him was a week ago to sneak some cash out of his wallet.> Kirk: <Huh. Doesn't sound much different from not having a trainer at all, really. I suppose you've been enjoying it?> Ripley: <Not really. Like I said, there's nothing to do around here, unless you count sitting around with your thumb up your ass as an activity.> Kirk: <What do you mean? I've been doing plenty over the last couple of weeks. Like going on dates, and battling some-> -He is cut off by Ripley bursting into laughter.- Kirk: <Hey, what's so funny?> Ripley: <Oh, it's nothing, just... the very idea of you going on a date is enough to make my eyes start watering.> -Kirk folds his arms and gives her an icy glare, which does nothing to quell her giggling.- Kirk: <And why would that be the case, exactly?> Ripley: <Let me put it this way. What, pray tell, did you do on these aforementioned dates?> Kirk: <Well, erm... we got a meal together, and had a quick battle, and-> Ripley: <...Seriously? You battled on a date? That's the kind of thing only you would ever suggest, Kirk. So, aside from kicking the crap out of each other and going through the motions of the average insecure teenager, did the two of you do anything else?> Kirk: <Um...> Ripley: <...You're honestly telling me that that's the best you were able to come up with.> Kirk: <Hey, this stuff is difficult, alright! It's my first time trying anything like this, cut me some slack. Besides, it'll all start working out after a while.> Ripley: <Do the two of you even have anything in common?> Kirk: <...Pardon?> Ripley: <Aside from the fact that you are both Lucario of biologically compatible genders, do you share any other traits or common interests with your new girlfriend?> Kirk: <We, um... well, we hung out with each other for a while beforehand, and we both like battling...> Ripley: <By that logic you and Bishop should be dating by now. Do you have any plans to take this relationship seriously? At all? Because by the sound of things I can't picture you two staying together for more than a month at the most. It's a wonder you've lasted this long already, honestly.> Kirk: <...> Ripley: <Well, if you want to waste your newfound freedom on a doomed relationship, I'm not going to stop you. I guess I'll be catching you later then, Kirk.> -She clambers up a nearby tree and scampers out of sight.- Kirk: <...> -After a moment, Kirk gives a low growl and turns to walk out of the park.-
Illusio - Around 600 years agoHerbert: So... in order to make up for what you did, you're wiping your own name from history in an effort to protect me? Lucanus: Put it this way. Do you want to be a descendant for the rest of your life? Herbert: ...No, I guess not. Sorry about that little outburst, then. Lucanus: No, no. If anything, I am the one who should be apologising. -He hears the characteristic thunk of a letter being dropped at the messenger post.- Lucanus: ...If you will excuse me for one moment, it seems I have mail. -He heads off to pick up the letter and examine it.-

Terrera-Sabaku is laying in a medical bed. Most of his body is covered in wrapping.- Sabaku: You know, adrenaline is fun while it lasts, but once it runs out... -His companion, in traction on the other side of the room, pipes in.- Vulcan: <Everything huuuuuuuuurts...> -Shiko is standing guard, making sure than no matter, stately or otherwise, interrupts his rest tonight. Considering that she is accompanied by a massive Garchomp, no one argues the matter.-
OrreVerax: "Right! Because-" Beat "Hello Mammor."

Ta-Val Caverns-Skye gives Femata — or rather, Ivy — the armband. Quickly, she digs into Eskay's bag- Ivy: Antidote, antidote... aha! -She pulls one out, and sprays it on the wound- Ivy: ...Dammit, it's not enough! -Skye, Spectrum, and the actual Toa keep attacking the Toxicroak, quickly knocking it out- Ivy: Okay... one problem solved... Skye: <Is he...> Ivy: I'm going to make sure he survives. But we've gotta be quick. There is a way... as long as it doesn't turn out to be just a myth. Skye: <What is it?> Ivy: <It's said that, somewhere in the mountains, there's a clearing with a triad of crystals. Beneath it lies Keetongu, the master of venoms. If we can find him, we can save Eskay. But we've looked all over the volcano, and no such clearing exists...> Spectrum: <...You're looking on the wrong mountain. We've been to one that fits that description.> Ivy: ... ...Take us all there. -She looks at all the others- Ivy: Mata Nui, you need to lead the Toa. Their duty is to protect the island. -She looks down at Eskay, who has fallen unconscious- Ivy: ...Mine is elsewhere. -She climbs onto Spectrum's back, and they fly out of the cave.- Skye: <...You heard her.> -A golden Rahkshi jumps down. Notably, Kraata-Za is attached to its head, emanating a "fear" aura.-
Holon CitySakura just looks at Alice as she goes, not really surprised with what happened "I guess sometimes the best way of hiding the truth is putting it on plain sight." she said, with a shrug "I should apologize later though, it's not like Lyuri wants me to tell everyone about this anyway."
Illusio, 600 years ago-the letter is tied with a pale blue ribbon, and reads:
Holon City-Crewe is wandering the city, contemplating being human for the few hours allowed her by the new moon stone just for a change of pace-

Ta-Val CavernsJoy: -Runs after Spectrum in pursuit- Edge: -Watches the Rahkshi jump down- <....... Can I kill this one?> -His arms ripple and clang in anticipation-
Holon City-Ripley looks over at Rogue and smiles.- Ripley: <When he wants to be. Still, he's not bad company, if only because it's fun to mess with him like that.>

Illusio-a very tired-looking Gastly floats out of a nearby shadow, regurgitates a scroll at Lucanus's feet, and immediately flees-
Illusio- Ammy and Issun peer at Lucanus and blink at the Gastly.-
Ta-ValMata Nui: ... <I must honor her will!> - Earthquakes- Styx: <After all she's been through? Of course!> -Shadow Sneak- Spick: <I want to help her too!> -Hydro Pump- Arika: Lara, Waterfall! Chrome: -Hammer Arms-
