At Mikan (Present)To Rex: "Yeah, he looks kinda childish when he doesn't growl or ram random stuff or go around announcing that he's like a Nidorino in the top percentage of the Nidorino." Maekrite grunts in his sleep, then starts flicking his ears. Meanwhile, Copahue is stubborn to leave Harriet's side before Treeo does. He's still gonna lose that one though because Harriet and Treeo would be recalled together when Luke is finished. Looking around: "Hmmm... I wonder what happened to Beat?"

Mikan"Hmmmm... I wonder where Tagg went..." Still stroking Maekrite. "...Oh well. He will miss the champagne... although perhaps I could reserve it for after the champion challenge..."

Mikan IslandRex: I think I'm too young for champagne. Anywho, I'll be back in just a moment. Going to go check on something. Masque: *stands* <I will accompany you.> Rex: Oh? That's alright, Masque. You can stay and get acquainted with everyone. Masque: *flatly* <My reason for accompanying you is to avoid just that.> Rex: ...Erm...okay. You could have said that nicer... *looks at Silent apologetically before heading off with Masque* Rascal: <Hrm...> *frowns* <Another one with a bad attitude. Speaking of which, I wonder how the lizard is getting along.>
Slateport CityMantisk: <...Someone has spoken ill of me.>
Mikan IslandWatching Rex and Masque go, having listened to certain part of the dialogue. "Hmmm... I wonder what is going on there... oh and I should have let Rex know that I do have a couple of cans of Přpsı..." Maekrite's ears flick and he lies on his flank, tongue out. "...Geez. Reminds me of my Schrodingers Eeveelution..."
Mikan IslandRex: Hey, why are you being so crabby? Is it because you lost? Masque: *scowls* <My performance in battle is unrelated to my desire for solitude. I simply do not wish to fraternize with the others.> Rex: Oh, so you're shy. Masque: *eye twitch* <That's not right either...> Rex: Well, whatever. I'll let you off this time, but you have to learn to get along with others. This is a team, after all. And part of being a team is getting to know new people. Masque: <...> Rex: Hmmm... well, in any case, I was on the way to pick up Rascal's daughter. She wanted to come and hang out with us for a while. I figured that I'd deposit you so you could hang out with Damian and Rampage. That and she's kind of energetic; I figured that you would probably rather avoid being around her. Masque: <Hm...> Rex: In any case, try to make some friends while you're at Elm's Lab, alright? Masque: <...Very well.> Rex: Great! Masque: <So, how is your Raticate doing?> Rex: Oh, she's fine. She wanted to come with me, but she decided no- ...are you reading my mind again? Masque: *smiles cryptically* <No.> Rex: ... ... ... >_>
Mikan Island: Pokemon CenterRex: *recalls Masque, depositing him into his PC and selecting the option to send him to Prof. Elm* Bye, Masque~ *sends a ping to Kim's address* Kim: *pops up on a mini-screen* Oh, there you are. I thought you forgot how to dial a phone. Rex: I've missed you too, dear. Kim: *sticks out her tongue* Anyway, I'm sending Aqua right now. Take good care of her, okay? And don't let her near any more zombie Charizards. Rex: C'mon, I won't let anything happen to Aqua. Besides, I'm sure that was all just coincidental happenstance due to nearby Legendaries. There's no way any weird things will happen again. Kim: Hmm...if you say so. Okay, she's on her way. See you soon. *winks and logs off*
Mikan Island: Several Minutes LaterRex: *retrieves Aqua's ball from the machine and lets her out* Aqua: *burbles happily* <Grandpa~> *starts to pounce on him, but pauses* <Erm...I mean, Ranger Pokemon Aqua reporting for duty. :3> *salutes with a paw* <Mama taught me that.> Rex: Awww. *hugs Aqua*
Mikan Island: Some time later at the picnic areaRex: *returns with Aqua* Aqua: <Hi, everybody~> Rascal: *comes over to greet his daughter* Lian: <Hi, Aqua!> *comes over as well* Gaea: <Hmmm...so that's Rascal's daughter?> *goes over too* Laplace: <So many water-types.> Naga: <:3> Current Team: Rascal the Flareon (♂), Aqua the Vaporeon (♀), Gaea the Golem (♀), Naga the Milotic (♀), Laplace the Lapras (♂), and Lian the Mienshao (♀).

Mikan IslandForte: So when do I get to battle? Shadow: <Just be patient.>
Slateport CityFelix: Okay...so, what do you all want to do? Rex's Pokemon: *clamor* Felix: Erm... May: Hmmm, let's make this easier. *sends out her Pokemon as well* We're trying to decide on what to do for today. See, there's a Contest Hall for musicals and dances and a Battle Tent for Battle Frontier related things. Everyone who wants to go to the Battle Hall, step to the left. Everyone who wants to go to see Contests step to the right. Whichever gets the most votes is the one we'll do first. Rex and May's Pokemon: *clamor clamor clamor* After moments of deliberation, the Pokemon split off into the two groups. For Battle Tent: Anya, Mantisk, Ohm, Chaka, Ronny For Contest Hall: Minty, Claudia, Jemma, Taylor May: Hmm...seems like we're going to the Battle Tent first, then.
Slateport City: Battle TentMay and Felix wander in, mingling with a small crowd of people. Before long, a scientist steps forward, clearing his throat and beginning to speak. Scientist: Welcome to Slateport's Battle Tent. Our purpose is to enlighten you on the various facilities hosted by the Battle Frontier. For the moment, we are offering insight on the nature of the Battle Factory. The Battle Factory is a facility that features using rental Pokemon in place of a trainer's standard team. This is done for two reasons: 1. To test a trainer's capability at handling Pokemon of different strength levels. For example, a strong Pokemon in the hands of a mediocre trainer might still end up losing to a weaker Pokemon in the hands of a great trainer. 2. To gather research data on Pokemon battle potential when being used by various trainers. Simply put, to win a Battle Factory challenge or apply for a job in the facility, one must have a sufficient amount of Knowledge. Battle Factories are a very ground-breaking in Pokemon research, prompting Johto and Sinnoh to make a joint-facility shared between their regions. The Battle Factory is headed by a Factory Head, the current Hoenn Head being a man named Noland. As his title suggests, he leads the research of the Factory by challenging trainers. Much like others who take part in the Frontier Challenge, he uses a team of rental Pokemon himself. Trainers who defeat Noland will earn the Silver Knowledge Symbol the first time and the Gold Knowledge Symbol the second. It is proof of that trainer's understanding of the Pokemon that they used. Felix: Using rental Pokemon? Sounds complicated... May: *nudges him gently with her elbow* Nothing too hard for a researcher, though, right? Felix: Hehe.
