ITT: We are all Pokémon Trainers:
Pokemon Village"Me... I am a hunter of my own kind, Joe. I can take them because I know them, because I am them. This is what I am, Joe - a dark, dark, broken monster of a man. I do my best, of course... but I never will be whole again. The closest I come to being whole is with you... but even then. I'm always on the look out, looking for anyone who might harm you, who might take you because of me. I am a danger, Joe."
Fall CenterGaruda: <Really? That would explain the lack of telepathy.> Selene: <Anyway, we're all rested and ready to go down into your deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep subconscious when you are!> Dune: *Sigh* She's been using that term all day.
Pokemon Village-panicking, tears start to form in his eyes- But...but...you said that...I...was...your light!
Pokemon VillageMunn is obviously pained. "Oh, Joe. My Joe. You are. You're the only thing keeping me from going right off the edge."
Pokemon Village-Joseph tries to regain composure, but his voice still shakes- Then stop with that "monster" crap! You're not! I can tell monsters, and you're not!
Pokemon VillageMunn sighs again. "Do you know... how close I come, everyday? How close I come to just going off, and hunting down every single criminal I can find without mercy or remorse? I... I scare myself, Joe. I just... I just hope I never go too far."
Fall CenterDune: Then we should get up to the room I rented - it's got a pair of beds as well as a pullout in case I need to actually sleep for a while. Deziree: Oh... You're not coming along as well? Dune: After a... particular complication with my last trip into the Mindscapes, I'd rather not. Ajax: <I could go in his stead.> -Garuda uses Miracle Eye on Ajax.- Garuda: <And there we go. Now, let us retire to Dune's room so that we can start.>
Fall City-After a bit.- Jason:Alright, tell me about 'em later. How about these past few years? Isn't here a reason you've been outta touch?
Pokemon VillageI...I... -sighs- I think I need a bit of time. By myself. I'll have the two send you back.
Pokemon Village"Joe, I..." Munn reaches towards Joseph, then drops his hand. "Alright."

Pokemon Village-nods. The Pseuteces take either side of Munn- I love you, Munn. Remember that. -blip-
Fall City-The two Neo-Galactic Grunts force the mystery man to the ground, and are just about to strike him when a deep voice rings out from a rooftop perch behind them.- ???: Beating on a man with no Pokemon left? You two just passed up your chance to make this whole confrontation quick and painless. Neo-Galactic Grunt 1: Wait, where did that come from? Neo-Galactic Grunt A: Aww man, not agai- -Something purple and black and vaguely resembling a Lucario jumps down from above, catching both of the Neo-Galactic Grunts in the back with a kick from each leg. A Golbat and a Skarmory descend from the skies, striking the Dedenne and the Graveller with a Sludge Bomb and a Steel Wing respectively.- Shrike: <Ha! Take that, fiends!> Dedenne: <Ack! What meticulous manner of advanced ambush is this?> Graveller: <The power of the seas... is failing me...>

Dune's Quarters-The group ends up here.- Garuda: <Everyone, find a place to lie down.> Dune: I guess it's a good thing I got Psyche a different room to stay in. -Deziree lies down on one of the beds, while Ajax sits in the corner. Selene hums a little ditty while Garuda concentrates a bit.-
Fall City???: AH! WHO'S THIS? WHAT'S GOING ON? SWEET MERCY, I'M GONNA DIEEEE! D:
Pokemon Village-Joseph has spent a couple of hours sitting here in the flowers. He still seems despondent- -he feels a furry nose nuzzle his hand- Uh? -an Eevee looks up at him- Eevee: <Hi, mister! You look sad!> Joseph: Well, I am... -the Eevee's eyes go wide- <Aw! Why?> Joseph: Well, I need to come to terms with the fact that my boyfriend is constantly teetering on the edge of insanity even with me there... -a surprised yelp from the Eevee- <What?! Why is that?> It's a long story... -and tells it- -the Eevee looks very sympathetic- <I'm sorry...here!> -she hops onto his lap and nuzzles his hand- <You can pet me! It'll help me become an Umbreon!> -Joseph smiles slightly and obliges-
Dune's QuartersDune: Alright guys, on three - One, two... -The world goes dark for the three chosen participants as Pent's mind is gently pried open by the combined mental efforts of the Moon Fairy and Semiorganic Flying defender.-
Pokemon Village-after a while of petting the Eevee, Joseph puts her down- Well, I don't think I can catch you. I don't feel like I pay attention to the mons that I already have. But I wish you the best of luck in becoming an Umbreon! -the Eevee doesn't seem disheartened- <Oh...OK! I'll find someone.> Joseph: Say...do you have a name? Eevee: <Nope! Should I?> Joseph: Well...you wanna be an Umbreon, right? Something stellar...how about Cassiopeia? Cassiopeia: <Right! That's what I'll call myself! Perfect!> -Cassiopeia waves a paw as Joseph blips back to Fall City-
Fall City-The Auric Avenger doesn't answer the mystery man's cries, instead landing in a roll and wheeling around to face the first Neo-Galactic Grunt to get to his feet.- Neo-Galactic Grunt 1: Why you little...! -He surges forward, only for the Avenger to kick his legs out from beneath him and deliver a Force Palm to his right arm with a loud crack.- The Auric Avenger: Don't call me "little". -He turns to face the second Neo-Galactic Grunt, who appears to be going for his boot knife.- Neo-Galactic Grunt A: Don't m-make me use this thing! The Auric Avenger: You won't get a chance. -The Avenger throws what appears to be some kind of large shuriken at the grunt, knocking his knife out of his hand before knocking him out with an elbow strike to the face. Meanwhile, Kaylee and Shrike have taken out the two grunts' Pokemon with a few more flyby attacks.- Graveller: <Forgive me, Kyogre...> Kaylee: <All right! Score one for our team. That puts us at about... seven to one or something like that? I don't know, I haven't been counting.> -The Auric Avenger himself takes a moment to catch his breath, panting slightly, before turning to face the mystery man.- The Auric Avenger: Seems like I just can't catch a break tonight... you okay?

Realspace-Pentmind cringes as she feels the psionic invasion, she calms and lets them pass...-
Pent's Mindscape, The District, Daytime-A warm wind blows over the city, the sun is high in the sky and the early-Unovan architecture stands freshly-painted and the streets are clean. It is here that the visitors arrive, at the center of town. Three buildings stand out among the thematic facades: A large stone library building, the front of a bar bearing a slightly more industrial theme and a large clock tower a bit further off down a third street-
Fall City???: -Whimpering- T-they're gone? THEY'RE GONE! The man bounds up and grabs the Auric Avenger's right hand with both of his, shaking it vigorously. The Auric Avenger may notice that the man's left hand feels a tad bit... off. ???': Oh thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU Sir!! If you hadn't been here... we'll I would have been finished for sure! Please, my I inquire who the person who selflessly saved my life goes by? Hipparchus and Archimedes stir and groan in the background. Muttering something about their trainer being a lily-livered coward.
