Nimbasa City

The woman looks around to find a bunch of newspaper clippings of the three young men growing more and more acclaimed at Pokémon battles. "...I probably should be proud, but I have no idea who these people are." She sighs.

Another cursory glance reveals a stack of papers, full of jargon and pseudo-philosophical ramblings. "@-@ I have no idea what any of this means."

Paula: The Z-Move part seems pretty counter-intuitive to a trial, but if you say so. Not like it's gonna be a proper Bug trial anyway, since I've only got one Bug in the first place.

-She cracks her knuckles.-

Paula: All right, let's get down to this. Time to show you who's boss!

Battle! Vs. Team Skull Leader Paula!

Paula sent out Joywave!

-A Butterfree takes the stage.-

Joywave: <Urgh, finally. I work better with Big Data, but at least I get to do something after being holed up here for so long.>

Colton didn't even look at which Pokeball he drew. But he knew he had a good luck of the draw when Helmsman materialized, ready for battle.

"Remember, this is all your call," Colton reminded.

<I heard you the first time, now step off!> The otter barked at his trainer, conjuring ice around him before directing it at Joywave.

Colton had to give the Butterfree a little credit for being more strategic than his starter.

Which doesn't really say much because his starter possessed the street smarts of a sofa, favoring to just type-advantage everything to oblivion. The Water-type was snoring, saying something about [Sparta], and he had to admit, he himself was actually about as tired, never really having had much of a chance to sleep except when he blacked out in the chopper.

So, yes. His Samurott was snoozing. Big whoop. But with a Blizzard landing, it wasn't much of a surprise that luck would bite him.

Also, none of his 'mons had Sleep Talk because dealing with a Lucario with a split personality was enough mental troubles for a lifetime. So yeah, he was a sitting duck. GG.

-She uses a few Quiver Dances, for as long as Helmsman stays asleep.-

-In the background, Paula sits back in the boss's throne, crossing her legs casually-

Paula: So, pal, let's chat. What's bringing you here, if you've got no use for the crystal? Just itching for a fight or something?

The woman continues looking around. She goes into the master bedroom. There are a few pictures hanging on the walls, all with one of the figures burned, disfigured, or otherwise removed. "...What is it with this man that he was so eviscerated from this family? And more importantly... why are the pictures still up?"

She keeps looking around. Finally, she finds a box full of documents. "Hmm, medical records, passports... A marriage license! What's my maiden name? Elizabeth Cain. Eh, doesn't really roll off the tongue. Better than Davis though."

Colton exhaled. "I'm actually on a business trip from Unova. My stay got extended when my boss noticed that nothing particularly interesting was going on for Halloween, and now I don't think any planes are going home until those portals in the skies are fixed.

"Quite paradoxical, really. I have to get home so my team can analyze the Entralink to know why it's gone haywire, but with no psychic-types, I can't get home. For now, I'm just running through the Island challenge so we can spar with the champion after we also win Unova, because I have a personal promise to not take any Elite 4 challenge until I defeat Unova's champion." He explained.

"But I'm also getting the crystals because they act as physical proof to anyone who says I never went to Alola," he said smirking while electing to sit down on the side of the battle.

Around this time, the Sleep Powder had worn off, the Samurott actually feeling a lot better than anticipated.

Until he saw a Butterfree finishing up something he only barely recognized as Quiver Dance because it was just that fast.

He sharply inhaled, knowing what option remained.

Paula: Ah, yes, the wormholes. Reckless, really. If you're gonna be obviously an evil villain with villainous intentions, then you've gotta have decent presentation, at least. Where's the dramatic flair of just suddenly exploding the sky with no announcement?

Joywave: <Ah, good, you're awake!>

<Oh, hello,> he sang, seamitar coated in heavily pressured water.

<No, you don't get to have fun today,> he taunted, breaking the water off to send it flying to Joywave at semi-sonic speeds.

"Wait, are you insinuating there's someone responsible for this? I just assumed that the Entralink had servers that were being overloaded. That's how MMORPGs work, right?" He asked.

-Joywave is splashed by the Aqua Jet before she can finish her move.-

Joywave: <...Rude.>

-And then she finishes executing the attack, and presumably starts another that may also be interrupted. If Helmsman survives the first, of course.-

Paula: Sorry, buddy, wrong genre, wrong form of media. This is borderline superhero stuff, not even counting the literal superheroes. There's always an aspiring overlord or two in a "supers" setting.

She finds her death certificate. "...Well that's morbid. I don't... think I'm dead." Attached is a note: "In lieu of a body to bury, a small placard has been left at Nimbasa Cemetery."

"Well that's convenient."

"Ya Cyruseses, your Ghetsiseses, I suppose ya gotta point." He decided, considering what she was saying.

Helmsman was able to tank the Giga Drain, but not without a major blow to his stamina. Contemplating everything he was capable of, he chose to reuse Blizzard. Worked fine the first time.

How could it fail him now?

Hau'oli City Marina

Lucius has thankfully cooled off considerably since last night. Despite his lack of knowledge of the region, he has navigated his way to Hau'oli City by the power of narrative convenience, and is currently standing by the docks, checking his Poketch and occasionally looking over at incoming ferries.

Lucius: Jeez, what's taking him so long? The ferry he was supposed to be on got here half-an-hour ago.

Bishop: <Perhaps he simply missed the boat?>

Lucius: Then he'd have called, like, ages ago. We're a long way from Sinnoh, if you hadn't already-

He then notices someone hovering about ten feet away. Someone familiar.

Lucius: ...Hang on. Liam?

Liam: Um, y-yeah. Hi!

He glances down awkwardly. While still recognisable, his appearance has changed significantly - his coke-bottle glasses are gone, and while his hair is still thick, bushy, and more of a mess than any given Cain, it has been cut short and now looks less like a Pidgey sanctuary. His formal shirt has been switched for cargo shorts and a slogan t-shirt which reveal a surprisingly athletic frame.

Liam: I'm s-sorry, I saw you as soon as I stepped off the ferry but then I passed by you and I dunno if you recognised me and I didn't wanna make things awkward so I just kept walking but then I couldn't double back through all the people so I thought about calling you but then I got super anxious in the crowd so I just waited and then I-

Lucius chuckles and pats Liam on the shoulder.

Lucius: Hey, calm down. It's fine. My fault for not spotting you sooner, really.

Liam takes a deep breath.

Liam: ...O-okay.

Lucius: Man, it's good to see you again. I feel like I've said that a lot in the past week, but it doesn't get any less true. What have you been up to?

Liam: Oh, um, y'know...

He rubs his arm.

Liam: ...Work, mostly.

Lucius: Work? Seriously?

Liam glances away and smiles coyly.

Liam: ...I like to keep busy.

Lucius: If you say so, ya little weirdo.

Liam: I'm f-four inches taller than you.

Lucius: ...Shut up.

He gestures a hand towards the city.

Lucius: So, welcome to Alola! Whaddya think?

Liam: It's, um... it's warm.

Lucius: Compared to Sinnoh, everywhere's warm.

Liam: ...You're still wearing your sweater, though.

Lucius: Hey, I like my sweater! Besides, it's November. If anything, you're the one dressed unseasonably.

Liam: At least I c-change clothes more than once a year.

Lucius: Excuse you. I know not to mess with a winning formula.

He glances at the massive pile of bags and suitcases sitting behind Liam.

Lucius: Jeez, are you planning on moving here?

Liam: No, I... I just thought I'd b-bring some work with me.

Lucius punches him in the shoulder.

Lucius: Screw work, you're on holiday! I'll get Kirk and Maul to help us take them down to the Center, then we'll figure out where to go from there. Sound good?

Liam smiles.

Liam: ...Yeah.

The two and their Pokemon pick up his bags and start making their way towards the Center.

-Boosts to Special Defense? Check. Boosts to Special Attack, providing for a more powerful Giga Drain, and therefore more damage healed? Check. A really speedy butterfly that can avoid the brunt of the attack? Check.-

-Yeah, she survived the Blizzard just fine.-

Joywave: <Well, you made me waste a couple one-liners, I'll give you credit for that.>

-Giga Drain-

Paula: Yep. Honestly, I've done some pretty shitty things, but all things considered, fuck Ghetsis. What a complete fuckwad.

<... Fuck me.> And he was down.

“Yeah, and I live there,” Colton recalled. “So I had to suffer through what he did the hardest. And that’s not even mentioning his...” he paused, searching for the right word. “disciple, N. Poor kid never saw the good side of trainers.

“And for reference, I consider people that unnecessarily smother their ‘mons in love and care to be equally bad, in that they never seem to care if their ‘mons want some alone time or to kick some teeth in.” Speaking of, he thought as he returned his Water-type. “First round goes to Butterfree.”

The gems seem simple and red, perhaps currency of sorts.

More paths branch out, one with a guardian, one with a Pikachu, and one with nothing at all.

The Guardian is starting to look ragged and wary, it spawns the sword and begins to swing at Embry and 9-Volt.

Trial of Strength

With his own strength wavering from fatigue, Colton’s Bug-Type was barely able to evade the sword in time.

Rather, he was actually grazed, his resistance to Steel keeping him running.

Po Town

“Ooh, dat’s a tricky one,” he complimented, contemplating the typing.

Everything would hit neutral, so a battle of attrittion would be beneficial. He grabbed the warm Great Ball and sent out Sylveon.

Almost subconsciously, she steeled herself, Quick Claw currently inactive.
