ITT: We are all Pokémon Trainers:
In the Midori Room-Napoleon lodges Sol's embrioded dagger into the dead Nidoqueen's body- <Napoleon>: <Once those dumb beasts see Sol's Dagger, they'll go for her immediately. Then their power will be mine> -Napoleon rubs his face- <Napoleon>: <That Nidoqueen put up one hell of a fight, It's a good thing she's dead now...> -Napoleon exits the Midori Room, only to see that Antonio saw him enter and that he now knows that Napoleon killed a Pokemon in the Midori Room- ~Antonio~: ~ˇAsesino! ˇAsesino!~ -Antonio runs down the Hallway screaming "Asesino" while Napoleon runs after him, catching up rather quickly-

Tracer's Track-The next room is broken in half along one axis by a large pit, with a large angled panel visible on the far end. Along the other axis it is divided by a glass wall on this side of the chasm. On the other side of the wall is the exit, with with no portal surfaces on that side.- -This side of the pit has a ladder for returning up to the start; there is also an alcove.- -a pipe drips orange gel into the pit- This next test involves multi-member cooperation, and the manipulation of Propulsion Gel. Fun fact: Propulsion Gel was originally developed for assisting researchers pursuing Tauros herds. The effort was discontinued when the Tauros took advantage of gel as well, leading to surprise testing of the animal impact provisions in Fuschia City's building code. I only wish I could have seen it...
Tagg's TrackTest Subject 128: Dr. Tagg! You remember a lowly photographer like me?! Heh... I don't know how much you've figured out... that computer you guys looted from Pokéfutures? The brass tried reprogramming it to serve as a lab aide. You can draw your own conclusions on the success of that effort.
Elsewhere in the house~Antonio~: ~ˇAsesino! ˇAsesino!~ -Napoleon catches up to Antonio and grabs him, before spinning him around and making eye contact with him- <Napoleon>: <I am going to take great pleasure in what I'm about to do...> -Antonio wails as Napoleon starts beludging the Carracosta to death.-

Tagg and Tangent's TrackWha! ...Dr. Tagg? Your Pokémon are talking! ..."this reality"? Are we both crazy now? Oh! My manners! Here, baked beans! -offers a can to Tagg-
Silent's Track-the next room is a multi-level maze- Good. Now for extra difficulty. Same rules here. In addition, 5 secret tiles shall trigger... heh heh heh... "Discouragement" measures. -a turreted laser emitter rises from the floor and activates, aiming a beam at the wall-

-Cut to ten minutes later or so, Maekrite has been helping me evade most of the lasers thanks to his Detect and his incredible sense of hearing; however, we are only facing three turrets so far and with great difficulty, Portal Gun or not...- — Curses...! -Then, it happens; as I'm forced to make a turn to another tile path, a turret emerges from the tile just at my right... Maekrite leaps and Shadow Claws the turret before I can shoot at me.- Maekrite — <We're done! To the exit!> — Run! -We try to make it to the exit, but a last turret stands on our way. In our panic, we forget the properties of the Portal Gun. It shoots directly at Maekrite, who barely manages to avoid; then, as I turn to him and back to the turret, I see it aim at me, and shoot...- Maekrite — <No!!!> -Instinctively raising my arms I feel a strong blast and then a thud; in my ears I hear a kind of bell, all I see now is the ceiling- Maekrite — <You monster!> — goes on a rage against the turret. The poor thing doesn't last too long. — <He... is... my... TRAINER!> — ... — Maekrite! -Maekrite's ears pick up- Maekrite — <Silent! Silent!> — hops on me and stares, crying — <But, how...?> — The... armor... -Maekrite looks at my arms, the armpads burnt by the lasers but my body mostly OK, although I hit my head. As Maekrite moves the armpads, he sees a Nidoran-stylized symbol- Maekrite — <This is... El-ahrairah?''> -Then I try to stand up, and all alarms in the place ring-

Silent's Track-broadcasted through all chambers- Whoa whoa whoa whooooa... [Silent Reverence], unauthorized testing aids are a flagrant violation of testing protocols, and will be noted as a demerit on your testing report. Followed by death. Say hello to my best friend, Deadly Nidotoxin... -gas starts flooding the room- Good-bye! Oh, look at this lifeless chamber, wasting electricity now... -the lights turn out-
Tangent and Tagg's Track-starts, hearing the broadcast- Ah!! M-m-mr Silent! He-he-she-she-just... -shakes more intensely- H-h-how do you mean save them?! We're at her mercy if we go back to the tests! And we starve if we stay here... we can't even save ourselves...
then the lights...
