Jacob: "Because I distinctly remember you telling me back at the Unova League that the Gible line were pure ground types. If a League member who specializes in dragons has a member of that line, wouldn't it indicate you were wrong and this whole conflict has been utterly pointless since day one?"
<While that information may be false, unless it changes anything about what you say about me, I wouldn't call this conflict pointless.>
Ever: Right...Ephemera, you should be able to wrap this up.
Ephemera: -lands on one of the swords lining the chamber, eyeing the Probopass and projecting a Primeape-
Ever: ...Not sure I want to know. Anyway, Thunderbolt.
Probopass: <You may be out of reach of me, BUT NOT OF MY NOSE!>
Wikstrom: Power Gem!
Probopass: -let's not get into what was just sneezed-
Ever: Ephemera, move!
-Ephemera does indeed move, landing on the opposite end of the room. She does leave behind a Raichu, however, which then Thunderbolts the Probopass-
Probopass: <I smell it now. My nose was great, but I grew too heavily to rely on it. I became proud, and in my hubris I grew blind. But now...now I see again. I must focus on my ears.>
Wikstrom: ...Well. A wonderful battle, a pleasure to joust with you. But see that you do not cross blades with me again, or I shall ensure that you never do so with anyone else.
Ever: Did Malva write ahead or something?
Gattaca: <I think you just look like a tourist.>
Ever: Did I ask for your opinion?
-Ever has fallen asleep between the chambers-
Drasna: I have to say, that doesn't seem nice...
Malva: Come on, Dras. Live a little.
Siebold: Art is meant to evoke emotion. By inspiring fear, the quality of battle is improved, and its aesthetic value is enhanced.
Wikstrom: The knights of old have always shown themselves capable of surpassing limits under great pressure.
Drasna: -muses- If you say so.
Malva: Besides, he's such a tourist.
Jacob: "What it changes is if a trainer who is specialized in knowing what dragons are uses a Garchomp, then you, a Garchomp, are clearly a dragon. Which means all the times I've called you a dragon weren't wrong. And that the whole conflict over whether you are or aren't has been pointless. And if you're going to argue that because I keep calling you a dragon I'm wrong then this is entirely pointless and I'm leaving. Finn at some point one of us will have to grow up and admit the other is right. Or we're both right. Or we're both wrong and you're actually secretly a fish. But until then please stop wasting my life by making it more stressful over a stupid argument." -Let's go of Finn and takes a step back-
<Okay, you want to hear it, Iridis? Yes, I'm a dragon, but I don't want to be called one. Maybe the whole thing with calling Dragon Claw Mole Claw and such is stupid, yeah, but I was honestly raised by Montgomery and I'd rather follow in their footsteps than whatever legacy 'dragons' left behind.>
<I admitted it myself after our first battle went as tragically as it did. Then, I just was focused on beating you and your team, which I managed to do. I admit what I said might have been a bit immature, but I don't think you've been the shining example of that yourself.>
Jacob: "See? That I have no problem with. What annoyed me to hell and back was you just thinking something that wasn't true. I won't call you a dragon ever again, and I can understand wanting to be a mole. I'm sorry if I've caused you personal distress and yes I admit I haven't been the most shining example of maturity. I'm... sorry. For what it's worth. So can we stop this pointless childish conflict? I'll accept you want more attention given to the mole aspect of you from now on, and won't mention the other side at all if I can help it. I suppose in exchange we'll both try to treat each other decently. Is that agreeable?"
Wait, who else is doing the League? I think nobody I know IRP.
Finn: <...Yeah, sure. Thank you.>
-He burrows back underground-
Ren: That's it! I'm switching to support!
-The glowing portions of Ren's armor change from teal to yellow, signifying a resistance to electric damage, as Castilon vanishes in a flash of light, the talis Nosvee◊, has taken its place in Ren's hand. Ren pulls out the smallest blade-like talis - which is immediately replaced by another - and flings it at the Captain. As the blade-like talis flies through the air, its teal glow becomes white.-
-As the talis hopefully nears the Captain, Ren raises his right arm upwards.-
Ren: -snapping his fingers while turning his wrist- RESTA!
-A shimmering field that heals allies expands from the talis hopefully healing the Captain.-
Gone for a while.

Forge: <Back to where we started.>
Fox: <Ahoy, Route 111!>
Eridanus: Thankfully, there's a nearby Route that will make the return route to Lumiose shorter.
I am assuming Lumiose the only city in Kalos large enough to host an airport.

Gattaca: <Oh good, you're awake. Now let's beat up some dragons.>
-Ever takes a moment to rub the sleep out of his eyes, does VIGOROUS EXERCISE, and then heads into the Dragonmark Chamber-
Ever: They really blew the budget on this place, huh?
Gattaca: <Are you really surprised at this point that they're all threatening your life?>
Ever: Hush. -recalls her-
Drasna: Ah! Hello there, welcome, welcome. Are you prepared for your last battle before the champion? I do hope so, or you'll find yourself facing the gullets of my wonderful dragons!
Drasna: Let us begin!
Jacob: -Is sitting in the observation area with his laptop, switching between watching Ever and compiling research logs, and writing music-
-Zeal and Lanie are around, probably.-
-Drasna sends out an Altaria, while Ever sends out Access-
Ever: Oh, jeez...Access, start out with Thunder Wave.
Altaria: <Whoa, hold up just one second. You think you can just get away with paralyzing me? Well, I've got news for you, buddy—>
Access: -pokes the Altaria- <...Pfft. Hey, dragon lady, do you have any keys I could...uh...borrow? For an experiment?>
Ever: Access, can you please focus? Use Play Rough.
Access: <Oh, fine.> -tags the Altaria with more force than is necessary, somehow inflicting severe damage-
Altaria: <Ow! My sensitive skin!>
Drasna: Altaria, Flamethrower!
Ever: Excuse me?
Altaria: <I'll learn you good!>
-the Altaria blasts Access with flames. The Klefki falls over, staring blankly at the ceiling-
Ever: Not a good start...
-Zeal or Lanie may stumble across Jacob or Verax if they're probably here-
Jacob: "Ouch. Well... this could get rough but I don't think Ever has anything to worry about. At least not yet..."
-Ever sends out Gattaca-
Ever: That Altaria ought to be low on health, whatever happens Gattaca can tank it and finish this one off. Payback!
Altaria: <The snow glows white on the mountain tonight, not a footprint to be seen...>
Gattaca: <Non, non, fermez la bouche maintena— zzz...>
Drasna: Now, Moonblast!
-since with the dual status conditions actually describing the rest of this battle would be rather a chore, we'll skip right to the end-
Pink Donphan: <—And though the little Seedot was very scared, he realized he needed to face his fears to evolve. So he tackled the Salamence, and was promptly roasted and devoured. The end.> -rolls away-
-see? Would have been totally a pain to describe-
Jacob: "Well that was... a thing. Definitely a thing. That... just happened. Okay continuing to watch."
-Zeal is still asleep.-
-Drasna sends out a Dragalge, while Ever sends out Ephemera-
Drasna: A good choice! Dragalge, please use Dragon Pulse.
Ever: Ephemera, Double Team!
-as the Dragalge charges up, Ephemera raises dozens of dustcopies off the floor and shuffles into them, the Dragon Pulse harmlessly piercing a copy-
Drasna: Hmm. Not bad.
Ever: Psychic, now.
Ephemera: -pops her ears open, releasing waves of telekinetic force and shoving the Dragalge back-
Drasna: Dragon Pulse again! Curve it!
Dragalge: -yanks its head around, shearing through all the Double Team copies and eventually hitting Ephemera and sending her flying-
Ever: Are you alright?
-Ephemera nods, hopping to her feet-
Ever: Good, Psychic again!
Ephemera: -earwaves of doom!-
Dragalge: -struck- <...Though all my life I have been silent, it is time I spoke. I have spent my time reflecting, thinking about the answer. The solution to everything. And now I have it. It is—>
Ever: ...I'm going to start bringing earplugs to these battles.
-Puts a sombrero on Zeal's head-
-Blinks at the battle-
"... I suppose this is just as strange as my battle with Dransa. Just... in a different way. Good going regardless, Ever. Even though you can't hear me. And stuff."

-Zeal continues to sleep.-
Lanie: The strangeness makes it more fun to watch. I hope my challenge or Chary's is just as weird.
Ephemera: -projects a hologram of Jacob giving his compliment-
Ever: That doesn't work if I don't know what he's trying to say.
Ever: I don't know how to take that.
Drasna: -sends out a Druddigon-
Druddigon: <Are you ready...to RUMBLEEEEEEEJEEJEVJDSJAIFGJHWEIARGHQRIGHQIRTHQPO#$TQJ#$TJQ#$GJRGAFEGADFGJSDFGHSDFGSDFGFSDGSDFHFGHO)%^J)%#^JH#%^UY#%^&U#^%_*#$%^_*$&*($&*($&($^&($&(&(&J<KLHKL:HL?>
Ephemera: <...> -Unown N-
Druddigon: <Eh, it doesn't really matter.>
Drasna: Chip Away!
-the Druddigon rushes forward, swinging a claw at Ephemera, but the Meowstic leaps into the air, nimbly avoiding it-
Ever: Disarming Voice!
Ephemera: <...> -lets out a horrifying shriek-
-the Druddigon recoils...but recovers as Ephemera descends, and swats her into one of the dragons lining the room using Chip Away-
