Before we left Unova, Cynthia gave Anom a Manaphy egg to hatch here. It started hatching shortly after we arrived, but Anom got ambushed by Pinchers before it was finished. I was nearby, and helped Anom keep them away from the Manaphy, but the poor thing was so scared of the chaos that it Heart Swapped us. And before we even knew what happened, the Pinchers made off with the Manaphy.
Since Cynthia trusted Anom with the egg, and endangering Manaphy is a criminal offence, Anom and I were hoping that we could get the whole thing sorted out and not have to tell anyone.
-goes to DS, picks her up off the ground, and hugs her close- It's okay. It's okay. You don't have to worry about it anymore.
-to everyone- I'm sorry we lied to you, so, so
sorry. But we felt like we didn't have a choice.
