-He walks over to the self-checkout, scanning it and waiting for the shopkeep to add the "rudeness tax". He checks out and walks back over to Gabe.-
Phoenix: So what's so special about you, that you get to work in Reality Warpers Ink?
Gabe: I was goth enough. Also can I try on that scarf?
Abandoned Thrifty Megamart
"You mean the one where they try and kill you...?" EJ mutters, wrinkling his brow. "Are cameras available to borrow?" he asks Acerola, hoping this isn't a stumbling block for him.
The shop assistant calls out to Pheonix.
Shop Assistant: Its buy one get one free, yannow. And due to our pro consumer values the cheaper item is what you pay for~
The shop assistant idly waves her hand to the backpack section.
Shop Assistant: Maybe you can find something else that strikes your fancy, whelp~
-Phoenix walks over and finds a dark red backpack, exactly his color.-
Phoenix: Awesome, great.

Shop Assistant: They're not~ They're top of the line, heavy duty, nigh indestructible Hammerspace backpacks. A new line of ours from our accessory department. 3500 Pokedollars flat~
-Gabe puts it on...-
-And flops to the floor as a Mimikyu with a dark gray sheet-
Gabe: <Woah... My head feels weird.>
Shaun: "Well teleporting is, but more literally..."
-Shaun recalls Achille and sends out Ace, whom he mounts.-
-He grins. Ace attempts to fly straight for the chest.-
Ace: <Pretty clever. But the chest might also be an illusion.>
-He sees Gabe.-
Phoenix: That's the least goth thing I can think of. Being part fairy-type. I can't imagine why your pokeform is part Fairy, except maybe the fact that you have the attention span of Frank after drinking a double espresso.
".. Man, I miss having flying types on my team." Daydre sighs and follows the others on the "fragile" path.
Trial of Sight
Hyp might have tried seeing something if he can, but, if not, continues on where the others did.
Mimikyu!Gabe: <Excuse me! I am the goth fairy, and I am proud of that title!>

Amanita: ...I really am a little worried about you. What are you getting up to that's got you so tired all the time?
-Brie, meanwhile, has fallen asleep on Amanita's shoulder-
Amanita: ...Or you can just sleep. That works too.
Brie: Zzz....no, no quiero ir a escuela, es domingo...
Amanita: ...And now I'm stuck here.
Ares: <You could replace yourself with a pillow and run.>
Amanita: I'm not going to do that.
Ares: <I recommend it.>
-To the Haunter-
Skitty are-You know what, I'll just look it up for you.
-Pulls out my PEFEdex and brings up a picture of a Skitty-
Sue: <What do you mean where we fit in?>
The chest vanishes and Shaun and Ace are on another platform a little further ahead of everyone else.
"Cheaters never prosper. Though I will applaud you for your clever use of your team."
Everyone else makes it across no problem, and they find a small case, inside it being some gems.
-Acerola tosses EJ a digital camera-
-Ever lets out a squeak of fright on seeing the image of a Skitty, and skitters up the Haunter's face to hide behind its spines-
Ever: You can't just spring that sort of thing on people, Tagg...
Muninn: <...Skitty. You're scared of Skitty.>
Ever: I'm scared of a lot of things! Just not you.
Ace: <Called it.>
Shaun: "Eh, it was worth a shot. Guess we can't pull any puzzle bypasses."
-They watch the others.-
EJ gratefully took the camera, turning it on and beginning to look through it as he walked.
Mason: Promise never to speak of that again, but otherwise yes please come with me there
Po Town — Shady House
-As Colton and team enter the boss's room, they'll find Paula waiting boredly inside.-
Paula: Oh thank Arceus, it's not a little kid this time.
"You say that like age is an indicator of a team's battling prowess," Colton remarked. "I'll let you know that even at 15, my team was only marginally better.
"I am currently 22." He punctuated. "And your word choice insinuates you desire to watch your 'mons get their teeth metaphorically kicked to alleviate your boredom. Or to have them strike my own team down."
He grabbed his starter's Pokeball. "Knowing that we may or may not win but still receive the Crystal, I do not care for two reasons. Because I do not possess a Z-Ring, and due to what you seem to want to see from me."

Paula: No, I say "thank Arceus you're not a kid" because there are some things even someone like me knows kids shouldn't have to be aware of. I say "thank Arceus you're not a kid" because I don't have to worry about holding back if you try to start some shit that doesn't fit a trial. I say "thank Arceus you're not a kid" because the last one was, like, 11, and she was trying to start some shit. I've been in this game a while, so please don't make assumptions. You know what they say about those.
-She shakes her head-
Paula: But nevermind that. You're here for a battle, yeah? Tell me how you wanna do this and we'll do it. Don't make it boring.
Colton shuffled all seven Pokeballs through his fingers.
"First to 3, no switching, no commands," he began. "We just send our 'mons out and let them battle until one of them taps out or can't stand up," he explained. "No repeats, no Mega Evos or Z-Moves." He finished.
"When one of them collapses, both mon's are out, but the winning 'mon's trainer gets the point." He further clarified.

Haunter: -glances at the Skitty image, feeling like he's missing something-
<Is the world ruled by dinosaurs? By humans? By... Skitty?>
