Mezzo: What are you guys so afraid of? This is just one of those fake Pikachu things, isn't it? Like sure, they're annoying, but come on.
-Mezzo sends out a Mimikyu-
Mezzo: ...Very funny.
Mezzo: Whatever. Night Daze that sucker.
-and the Mimikyu sends a wave of yellow obscura at the other Mimikyu-
Completely unrelated to any of the current raiding going on, Halis is trying to talk further with their apparently-cursed book.
Halis: "C'mon, please say something? I'll, uh... give you a thing!"
The book ignores this vague gesture, remaining blank.
Halis: "A thing being valuable?"
Still blank. It doesn't seem amused by any of this.
Halis: "...Can you at least tell me if you're trying to lead me somewhere?"
It responds to this, however, in its usual equally-vague manner.
Halis: "Three to one, one to zero."
They think this over a bit.
Halis: "...Y'know, I really do wish you'd make more sense sometimes."
It then returns to its previously blank state, and Halis closes it, trying to think of what this could mean.
Alex: We're here to kick your ass! Then discredit all your scientific accomplishments to make it sting even more!
-He gestures at the Mobius mons before turning to AU!Tagg and Drake.-
Shaun: "Knowing what happened in this universe...isn't that a little suspicous?"
-AU!Shaun draws his sword and attempts to sneak closer to the Mobius Grunts, waiting to see what the J-Team and Co. do.-
Kaiiseii: "I'm just here on a date."
Naga: "You trespass upon land that is not yours. It was only a matter of time until you were found and eliminated."

Me: Shadow Pokémon?! I've never encountered a Shadow Pokémon before. Ready, Piku-chan?
Piku-chan: <Time to bring these Shadow Pokémon back to the light!>
Me: That's the ticket! Use Thunderbolt!
-Piku-chan surrounds himself in an electrical aura, jumps off my shoulder and fires a bolt of lightning at the Shadow Pokémon.-
-Cady, Mrs Lane and Cory have arrived back at the Lane family household after the holiday, Cory riding on his Stoutland. Their window has been broken.-
Mrs Lane: Oh dear... It seems someone decided to break in.
???: Dammit! We've got company!
???: Come on! We can take 'em!
Cady: I know those voices...
-Blue bandit and yellow bandit jump out of the window.-
Blue bandit: Seems someone got home early!
Yellow bandit: You'd better get outta our way!
Cory: Let's see, it's you two versus a league certified trainer, an auric and, well, me. I'd say your odds are slim.
Mrs Lane: Who even are you knuckleheads anyway?
Blue bandit: Glad you asked!
Yellow bandit: But we're not telling!
Blue bandit: We're just here to relieve you of some of your valuables.
-They pull out their colour coded bats. Mrs Lane whips out an aura construct frying pan in response, as well as sending out a Whimsicott. Cady sends out Coda. Yellow bandit sends out a Ribombee while Blue bandit sends out an alolan sandslash.-
Mrs Lane: Bring it!
Yellow bandit: If you insist!
you are challenged by villainous twins blue bandit and yellow bandit!
-The twins have been defeated and left with minimal loot.-
Mrs Lane: I need to go pick up some stuff from the shop, you two assess the damage.
-Cady and Cory look through the house, and arrive in their herb garden, where one of the bushes has been crushed by something and a watering can is lying on the ground. Cory's Stoutland starts sniffing at the plant.-
Cady: I wonder how that bush got crushed. Also, loony usually puts away the watering can. She's lazy, but not that lazy. I wonder if it has anything to do with that text I got...
Cory's Stoutland: <Yup! This is sleep powder alright! But what would it be doing on a plant?>
Cory: I've got it! The powder, the can, that text, it all makes sense! What I think has happened is, for some reason, your friend was kidnapped while she was gardening! The bush is crushed from where she fell after being hit by the sleep powder, and she must have typed that text with her face! The kidnappers were probably those people who were just here!
Cady: Of course it would be them... Those two are blue bandit and yellow bandit, a pair of amateur supervillains. A certain alter ego of mine deals with them on a regular basis.
-Someone is running towards them at top speed.-
Kat: Cady! Look out! They're coming to rob your house!
Cady: Loony! You're alright! Don't worry, we dealt with them already. Wait, why are you in your pjamas?
Kat: Long story.
AU!Tagg: Ugh, I see they have Scolemis and draconic forces among them.
Bombyl: <They thought they could invade us in Alola, but the Tapu sent them packing.>
AU!Tagg: If they see me in particular they'll probably bolt.
Jean: Really? Well if stealth isn't an option...
-She sends out Pidge-
Pidge: <SNUGGLE TIME!> :D
Garchomp Employee: <Wait, wha->
-Sees AU!Tagg and his eyes go all Tex Avery-
<It's HIM! Man your stations!>
-The dragons and Unova mons bolt inside-
-Some of the humans remaining outside, confused send out their Pokemon, a Slaking, a Gengar, a Vespiquien, and a Tsareena-
Edited by Umbramatic on Jun 27th 2019 at 5:44:45 AM
AU!Tagg: -To those who chose not to run inside- Step aside!
Bombyl: -Throws a Pollen Puff at the Tsareena-
Eclipse: -Fires a Stone Edge at the Vespiquen-
-Suddenly the comms tower for the base just falls over seemingly of its own accord-
Judith: -Taking her thumb off a detonator- Well that was easy.
Wanderer: You'd think they'd be a bit more suspicious of Mobius folks they didn't recognize after the last time...

Daev: Oh. Uh... Okay?
-He sets down the coppery Aron and starts rummaging in his rucksack for a cast-iron skillet-
Daev: Alright, I'm ready.
-The Aron smells of copper and... Nature? Like for some reason its scent evokes the concept of nature-
Drake: That's a weird name.
-He glances at the assemblage-
Drake: And it appears some soldiers can't notice when the war's over...
Colton sent out Amaterasu, gesturing to the guards while silently telling her to only incapacitate them.
A Hypnosis flare danced around on one tail, a Confuse Ray on another.
And then all hell broke loose.
Colton broke his illusion and pointed down at the ground with two fingers before quickly flicking them up in an attempt to create a Dark Pulse explosion where a couple of 'mons stood, particularly the Gengar.
Amaterasu's Sunny Day activated while she coalesced the flares into a Fire Blast that she fired at the Vespiquen.
-Shaun tosses out Beowulf, who attacks the Tsareena with a Pyscho Cut.-
-Shaun loads a tranq dart and aims at one of the Mobius fires.-
-A billow of gray and streak of blue drop in, the latter attacking the Slaking with an Aura Sphere.-
Arthur stared at the grunts, ready for any offensive that may come his way. Cayde and Clutch ready to attack, Arthur was ready for any set of pokemon before him. "Clutch, Psychic, Cayde, Metal claw."
Cayde leaped at the Gengar, while Clutch aimed for the Slaking.
Further out, a figure observed with a set of binoculars, a Lucario right beside him, "Hm... Odd party. Seems familiar."
~You could run in after them.~
"I could, but I'll sit back and observe for now."
Silas sipped the mug of coffee tenderly, he wasn't much of a coffee fan himself but a good mocha did hit the spot, sure around this time cold drinks would make more sense but he needed something hot.
Hacks looked over at the mon sitting there, a larger than average Noivern who blinked, <So... yeah you got my message.>
"Mon search is a helpful site," Silas responded, the Noivern tilted his head, <You can understand me?>
"It's a long story that will be covered later. For now, what's your name?"
The Noivern grunted, <George. Never liked that name much.>
Silas nodded, "Alright then, let's go over some history."
Monsearch dot net was a social media platform that helped pokemon and trainers find new partners after a split from their old ones for any reason, the most commonly being "compatibility issues", really just another phrase for the team wasn't working out and both parties agreed to go their separate ways. That was the sad thing about building teams, sometimes differences happened, the site was built as a way of helping everyone find happy endings.
<Right so you already read all mine, just simple fact that we didn't feel the magic, not a slight against my old trainer, she was great, we just didn't... click. That and she named me George, not really a bad thing it's just I don't feel like a George.>
"You don't sound like a George."
<RIGHT! Oh my Arceus understanding me is already a blessing.>
Silas nodded and took another sip, "So, what was it with my profile and such that made you consider?"
<J-team for one, seems like fun to get caught in that nonsense->
"It's not but please continue."
<-And the fact that you were looking for a flying mon, and judging by your profile pic which has you with dark shadows under your eyes and a frown, I figured I fit that aesthetic very well. By the way is that guyliner?>
Hacks started laughing hard, ~I like him already!~
Silas sighed, "Aesthetic yes, as for the sullen eyes... no that's just my face. No makeup, I just look like this."
George nodded, <Okay... I like how this is going so far. Oh I have one major request though before I consider joining, give me a new name. I want to be called something else other than George.>
Silas sat back, gave it some thought, "Conroy. We'll call you Conroy."
<Oh thank Arceus that is so much better a name!>
Silas thought some more and then asked, "How do you feel about superheroes?"
<Noivernman the Animated series is the definitive version and the DC Animated Universe was one of the best collective universes ever made outside of comics.>
Silas grinned, "And the Jackal?"
<Seems kinda cool, I wonder if he- oh my Arceus you're him.>
"Wow, got it in one."
Conroy stared, and then laughed, <So looking for a flying mon? Want a big badass bat huh? Can I look cool?>
"Looking cool is part of the gig. Want in?"
Hacks grinned, ~Welcome aboard Conroy.~
-a small fairy flies up to the palace gates, and there she meets an angel-
Fortis: Hi! You came back!
Noelle: I did, because I really wanted to see you again. But—
-Noelle is interrupted by a pair of palace guards moving between her and Fortis-
Guard: Stay away from the angel!
Guard: Your fairy corruption isn't welcome in this place! You'd just ruin her!
Noelle: But she's my friend!
Guard: Nonsense. Such a beautiful and magnificent angel could never be friends with a tiny fairy like you.
Noelle: But I...
Guard: You don't even deserve to bask in her presence. Leave, and never return. You're not worthy.
-one of the guards grabs Noelle, and throws her outside the palace-
-which wakes her up with a start-
-she lets out a deep sigh, then hugs her pillow-
Lance: Okay! Moose, think you can hold these guys off?
Lance: Great! Let's do this!
Moose ran up to the Slaking and used Storm Throw on it.
Cady: Okay, never mind then... Cecelia, thunderbolt!
-Cecelia shoots a bolt of electricity at the Vespiquen.-
Kat: Alright, screw stealth! Aura, fling me at the Gengar!
-The Espeon uses psychic to send Kat hurtling at the Gengar, shadow claws out and ready to strike.-
-Lucius is lounging around in his room, playing a game of zero-stakes pinfinger with Falchion and his prosthetic arm.-
Lucius: ...Do you ever get the feeling that something much, much bigger than you is going on just a hair's breath away, and if you only reached out for it you'd find yourself sucked in?
Falchion: <...Not really.>
Lucius: Yeah, me neither. Hey, where's Halis?
Lucius: Y'know, the... ah, shit.
-He pulls away from Falchion stabbing motions to pull out his phone.-
where u at???
prbly still in vermillion ik but i wanna make sure i don't lose you again
-Lissa is still here.-
-Largely because her cabin is probably on the other end of the Stormchaser, not that she has a cabin on the Stormchaser in the first place.-
-Besides, it's not like she's got any teleporting or flying mons, so she's stuck here.-
-And she wouldn't even know how to get from here to the Pokemon Center anyway.-
-...Why are you still looking at her like that?!?-
Edited by Herbert40k on Jun 28th 2019 at 5:25:40 PM
They're woken up by a message on their PDA, which they promptly respond to.
oh hey luci!! i was wondering where you went honestly, i've been on the stormchaser since i have a room here now and stuff. you should come visit i have plushies everywhere and everything, it's great :)
oh uh, anyway, i've also been thinking about some stuff but i'd want you to be here in person for that since it's kinda personal :o
-Isbrand doesn't mind. It's nice to have company.-
-That and she refuses to make cute girls leave her room.-
-Good thing she put some actual furniture in here instead of just having a workshop and a hammock.-
Isbrand: "...don't you have a job, by the way?"
oh, uh... i took a trip to sinnoh. had a few things on my mind and wanted to press f to pay respects to dad and all that
dunno why, he was a prick
anyway plushies sound great! :0 and if you need to talk about stuff i can be right over
(once i drag maul away from... choose-your-own-escape-room???)
the ship's still parked in vermillion right?
-Lissa gives Isbrand a kinda half-shrug.-
Lissa: I have a few jobs. Nothing ever seems to catch fire while I'm away, though, so I think we're good.
-It's probably worth noting that her relationship with pants seems to be more of a casual pen-friend thing by this point.-
aww, sorry to hear that :c
but yeah, the ship's in vermillion when you wanna come over, my room shouldn't be too hard to find since it's probably one of the more decorated ones d:
Isbrand: "That's fair."
-She quietly tinkers with her wrist computer/Sheikah Slate for a minute.-
Isbrand: "...so, uh..."
-She bites her lip.-
Isbrand: "Suprisingly I'm not the best at keeping up a conversation. Unless I'm flirting or threatening."
look for the room with plushies bursting out the door, gotcha
-Sure enough, in a few minutes Lucius is here and looking for a room matching that exact description.-
Lissa: Nor am I, funnily enough. I guess we could...
-She's about to suggest the obvious, but changes tack at the last moment.-
Lissa: ...What's that thing on your wrist? Doesn't look like any Poketch I've ever seen.
While the room isn't quite that full, Halis does peek outside their room, waving Lucius over.
Halis: "It's over here, Luci. Come in and sit down somewhere, there's plenty of room."
They quickly go back into their room, jumping onto the bed and laying down with just as much speed.
-Isbrand's eyes seem to sparkle with her natural Fae-ness.-
Isbrand: "Okay so I still had my arm-mounted computer which is basically just a smartphone with more processing power and then I scavenged some 600-year old Magitek and made artifical fuel for it so it could run without Glitch matter and then I slapped that Magitek on my computer and now I have a hard light shield and I can summon a motorcycle out of thin air-"
-Isbrand stops for a second to catch her breath. Her cheeks blush lightly.-
