"Far as I know he does work with the more above board corrupt companies, ones that are still evil but more along your standard evil than pokefutures evil."

~Delta also seems to have some standards.~

"Which just makes him worse really, if he was some cackling madman it'd be so much easier to handle. It's the quiet ones that act like normal people that you have to worry about, and not just because of how easy it is for him to blend into a crowd."

Hacks nodded, ~Still, surviving a encounter with him is good, We suspect it may have something to do with a little something the Bolts did a few months ago.~

Silas shrugged, "Best Berry is the only company we know he works with, and that's just what we got from the files."

Bishop popped out, "Captain we're approaching our target zone, if you could please proceed to the cockpit/bridge and take command, it would be appreciated."

"Of course Bishop, I'll be there shortly."

Bishop nodded and floated back into a wall, Silas looked to Tommy, "For now, we're leaving those worries behind, somewhat literally."

Hacks gave Tommy a grin, ~Be prepared, we got some fancy toys on this here boat.~

Silas smirked and walked out.

Roxy smiled a bit, "Well whatever the sense of fashion, we've got some fun in store. As for 0 G Battles, I'll be forcing Silas to sit them out, he has a unfair advantage as he's the most familiar with them."

Silas walked by, "The unfair advantage is called being a master Roxy. Hacks and I are very pleased with that title."

Roxy shot Silas a disapproving look as he walked through, before returning to the task at hand, "If he's on the move, everyone grab a crash couch or seat, we'll be experiencing some G forces soon and the Intertial Plating only goes so high."

Amber nodded, <It's very cool.>

Tassa nodded and sat down on a foldout chair from the wall, she looked to Des, "Please, just call me Tassa. The royal family has not existed for a long time now," and then she looked to Julius, "You seem odd yet in a way familiar, we may need to have a face to face chat sometime."

<Nothing's coming up in my search through the inventory - far as I know, my boss is the only one able to alter Pokemon forms.

<If it makes you feel any better they're not exactly something that should be changed?> He offered. <To do so is to deny who you are as a person,> he reasoned.

Accumula town, night

A trainer and his team sat/floated at/on a large table, a dwindling fire beside them. A large stack of potato chips (apparently standing in for poker chips) lay in front of the Breloom, which bolstered the stupid grin gracing his features.

Cortez: <All in!>

He clumsily used his tail to sweep the small stack to the center of the table. The cynical Litwick threw down his cards, protecting all of three chips from loss, and turned around, as if pouting.

Armando: <Arceus, you are so damned lucky! I am not going oh for four.>

Cortez laughs, sending spores everywhere. After a brief coughing fit, Silversmith Junior considered the situation. Not just this particular hand, but how he'd started playing games with his Pokemon in the first place. There was, of course, the whole Ersatz Alliance incident (fie upon ever attending that seminar!). Then there was his new job taking the night shift at the local Pokemon center. It was really a perfect opportunity: work experience, money for his future, he would only have to leave his house when the moon was out he could master the use of the broom, and even still have his day hours free. Usually to sleep, but you know. There was a slow night, and a co-worker asked if Silversmith was familiar with various exotic types of solitaire. Upon replying "no," he was introduced to the wonderful world of playing cards. Not only were they a fantastic way to pass the time, but cards was an excellent way to bond with his mons more. As for said mons, they were sick of chess and couldn't convince Silversmith to go battle or engage in otherwise entertaining activities outside, so the change was welcome. Life was ultimately, to sum up, dull.

His melancholy musings were interrupted by the muted murmurs of the Mareanie on his shoulder.

Aqua: <I think you should fold...>

She didn't want to participate in the "<cutthroat>" sport of Poker, so she relegated herself to merely Silversmith's top advisor.

Silversmith: Thank you for the advice, although after considering all the factors I am disinclined to take it. I'll call.

Armando: <He won the last three hands, why should this one be any different?>

Cortez: <Unimpeccably put, pal.>

Silversmith: "Unimpeachably." You know, Cortez, you may be a powerful opponent in most contexts.

Cortez: <Two pairs! Beat that!>

Silversmith: Let me finish. I'll grant your strength is great… but it could never withstand an AERIAL ACE.

At this quip, he threw his cards in the air. An ace was indeed visible… before the second card flew into Armando's flame. With a shout and a lunge, Silversmith grabbed it (while still on fire and airborne) and dunked it in his cup. Removing it: a second ace. Three of a kind. The victory was his. Ordinarily, this would have been followed by great rejoicing at the end of Cortez's winning streak. However, the lateness of the hour and the eventual monotony of playing through the same few events over and over took their toll, and Silversmith was met with silence. He sighed and began to snack on his winnings when his father entered the room.

Silversmith Senior: What are you doing eating at this hour? Go to bed!

Silversmith: Dad, I work nights now. I have to become nocturnal.

Silversmith Senior: No, you need to get solid sleep when you can to compensate for when you can't.

With many grumbled arguments, Silversmith trudged to his room, but his routine was interrupted by his father.

Silversmith Senior: Oh, by the way, I need you to run some errands tomorrow.

Silversmith: Can't I, uh, do something around the house instead?

Silversmith Senior: Nope.

Silversmith: But—

Silversmith Senior: If you'd argued with me about two hours earlier, I would have been happy to explain. Good night.

He shut the door, depriving the room of nearly all light. Silversmith opened the curtains and natural, evening light flooded in. That was better. He set Aqua next to her shallow water bowl (more of a vat than a bowl) and, stealing a glance at the dusty metal lockbox on his shelve, went to bed without a word.

Mistralton Cave

Shadow had gotten his usual luck. Grinning as he spotted an Aron, he directed Mischief forward.

Shadow: Ready, Mischief? Let's do this! Flamethrower!

Mischief obliged, opening her muzzle to blast the surprisingly unfazed Aron. It was, as normal, super effective.

Shadow grinned and readied a Dusk Ball. Throwing it, he watched impatiently as it wiggled three times and clicked. Hugging Mischief as he retrieved his new Pokemon, he hefted the Pokeball up towards the ceiling.

Shadow quickly set about trying, and for once utterly failing, to train his new catch. The Aron, who he'd dubbed "Loyd", moved slowly but didn't really hit too hard. In fact, Shadow couldn't figure out how to battle with a defensive viewpoint.

Shadow: You're slow, but you don't even deal that much damage! What do you do?!

Loyd: <Relax a little. I don't see why battles have to be fast. Let the foe wear themselves out.>

Shadow: The best defense is a good offense.

Mischief: <I knew your battling style wouldn't be compatible with a Pokemon both slow and defensively inclined.>

Shadow: Ugh... Loyd, Return! Let's see if I can figure out a fix.

He heads toward the Mistralton Pokemon Center and takes a rest as he ponders the Dusk Ball holding Loyd.

Tommy: Understood.

Best Berry. Of course it's Best Berry. He'd have asked about Pokefutures but given that they're unethical mad science types the answer was probably obvious. Still, he was curious about what happened that would've crippled the Delta enough to manage to screw up trying to take a spinarak from a dorky 20-something... besides not having it in the first place.

Those questions would have to wait. He rejoined his friends and buckled up—tight. He specifically didn't eat for the occasion, which made sight of Shutter eating jelly-filled onigiri-shaped pastries all the more amusing.

Shutter: What's with that look on your face?!

Tommy: Nothing. There are barf bags under your seat, by the way.

Fuka isn't listening to either Jared or Halis as she stares in wonder at her Binacle. Struck by inspiration, she digs into her satchel and pulls out a pair of thick gloves. She puts them on, they go up to nearly her elbows. Her Binacle watches in its own wonder and anticipation.

L: <We're going to do the thing>
R: <I love the thing!>

Fuka kneels down in front of her Pokemon, holds her hands palm-up in front of it, and begins to chant as she claps her hands with Binacle's claws

Fuka: Patty-cake, patty-cake, baker's-
L: <-man! Bake me a cake as->

Halis: "Ahhh... truly heartwarming."

They're definitely just plain happy by this point, watching the group attentively.


Halis sighs, putting down Pent for a bit and trying to hold both Monopeko and Veritas in place, speaking louder than usual and actually raising their voice for once.

Halis: "Both of you, stop. Now. Stop fighting. Stop scheming, just stop."

Judging by their expression, they're tired of this in general. Even the hand motion they're doing for the telekenetic grip is half-baked, since it's just intended to stop them and not actually hurt them.

Hound: -feeling a vague pressure- <You can sense the exact level?>

Mona: More or less? Director didn't feel a thing until it was about three-quarters to it's max level. But Footpad and the others with heightened senses or connection to this palace seemed to feel it when it was about this level while others didn't. So I'm assuming that normal humans and Pokemon don't feel the pressure until it's to the point that basically actual air in the palace is on high alert.

Hound: <Yeah I can feel it a vauge sense already... And seconding Ariadne's question. Director and the others gave us the rundown, but I wasn't too clear on this mission's objective myself.>

-Veritas gasps as she pauses in mid-air, reaching out. She can't move, can't strangle the voice out of that toy. Monopeko begins to laugh-

Monopeko: Man, I owe ya one bunenby, really saved my bacon!

Veritas: No no no-no-no...

Monopeko: I'd have preferred to do this with a little more carnage but whatever! I'm revoking my offer to be your costume~

-The effect is instantaneous. Veritas is gone, in it's place is a roiling cloud of sparkling multicolored smoke contained by the telekinetic grab. The cloud actively pushes towards the unconscious body of Pent but cannot break the barrier. Monopeko laughs-

Monopeko: There ya go, I stopped her for you. You're welcome.

"I don't get it," Sunny observed, returning her feathers back to the infinite supply in her cape. "Is Veritas Pent's consciousness given form or something?"

Do you not remember what Veritas said? Colton asked. She said she was inadvertently created by Pent, and then there was a [straw that broke the camel's back] and now Pent's unconscious, he reasoned. Halis keeping that grip on Veritas' remains is keeping them from being reabsorbed into Pent. It’s like when he borrowed my Obscuric ability. I felt terrible until I got it back, then I felt like I had reclaimed my soul.

“It's like he bled out and we need to transfuse the blood back into him,” Roy compared, to everyone’s startled glances but eventual agreement.

"Halis!” Ammy hollered. “You gotta let go of the fog! Pent might wake up if you do!” She explained, rushing over to her boyfriend, kneeling over him, concerned.

October 11, Lumiose City

Jean walks over to Jonathan's temporary new desk at the photography studio. There appears to be several artifacts tastefully stacked in clear boxes with a sign that says "Do not fucking touch anything" in the coarse Kalosian dialect of his home region.

Across the room were several pots of food.

Jonathan: Hello, sir. We just finished taking photos of them. As the person in charge, I'll be sorting them at the exhibit at the gallery downstairs before it opens for this evening's gala.

Jean: It took them long enough to get here.

Jonathan: I know right. But we couldn't risk it. These mean a lot to my people and my dad and his friends at the council entrusted me with them throughout the loan period.

Jean: Busy as a combee.

Jonathan: Yeah. It's a lot harder than what I'm used to since I don't always take on organizational jobs. I did make a lot of friends with the other [First Nations] and [Metis] people overseeing the other exhibits. My father is arriving tonight; he had pressing business to attend to and couldn't get here sooner, but he will be in time for the gala.

Jean: Good to hear. I understand that this is a very heavy subject for your people and participating means a lot.

Jonathan: Colonialism was a bitch. It's nice that we had this chance to actually talk about the contact between Kalos and indigenous peoples in the Western Hemisphere, though. Be nice to share our culture in a way that isn't a brazenly offensive stereotype. Also, take some of the food I remembered to cook. I went through a lot of squash for that soup.

Jean: No unfeazant?

Jonathan: You know how long that takes to cook?! Now, I know you folks are aware that I don't specifically like autumn harvest festivals for reasons related to the big gala talk tonight, but I figured that it's in the spirit of genuine goodwill and reconciliation. Also, you owe me a new set of metal pots.
