-Pent's unsettled by being told that the Admin remembers his face-

Really..? Cause I don't... I don't remember seeing you.

-He raises his sword (for clarification, probably the Horseman's Blade) and takes a stance-

Either way, I know how to handle a monster like yours.

-He runs in to begin slashing as another swordsman (Tibalt) approaches this specific piece of the battle and stands at the edge, watching-

Tibalt: Huh... Nice technique.

It's clearly a case of backroom political albumizing.

The Lagiacrus was rocked by the Earthquake but maintains it's footing. Pent's slashes don't cut deep either. The Aura Sphere practically bounced off of the Lagiacrus's scales.

Hunter Admin: "Aye, the you from my world."

He knocked another arrow and pulled back hard, firing a dragon shot at Pent.

The Lagiacrus reared up it's head and let out a massive roar, piercing the ears of those around it.

Rowan: <Could've sworn the room was close- oh wait, we're here already.>


The blanket lump that is Daydre seems genuinely confused for a moment.

"Wait, your fins can do what?"

"..."

"I don't want to tell you my worries they're weird"

Ultra Badlands

"Oh I guess those weird Carnivines behave like normal Carnivines?? Type interaction-wise anyway"

Daydre picks up Mr. Bitey, who holds up a Protect barrier so neither get hit by the Power Gems. Rowan runs on ahead, dodging attacks all the way, and ignites a Heat Wave at the Malborovines.

Somewhere off to the side Azure pricks his earholes at the sound of guitar.

Azure: <Well, guess that's my cue to dust this thing off.>

He slides the guitar on his back forward and, playing off Logan, strums a chord. The Sparkling Aria he'd been preparing explodes outwards, aiming towards the enemies surrounding him.

Who knows where Sylvie went? Not me. I am but a narrator

Vee: -proud- <Oh yeah, they can totally sniff out angst an' fear an' love an' all that good stuff. Feel 'em quiver.>

-she presents them for analysis-

<...too weird for me?>

-examining a claw- <Also, I ate a clown.>

-little grin- <I am an expert on weird, an' I'm super impervious to all forms of harm. Hit me.>

???

-there's a standoff, made all the stranger that both sides are apparently utterly vulnerable-

Hecate: ~...you've left your friends one team down. If these two had stepped through, you'd be leaving them to the mercies of—~

Vee: -growl- <You're so much more of a threat—>

Hecate: -shockwave rippling out- ~A THREAT?~

~I have done nothing, nothing but help since I first encountered you.~

Hecate: ~A small sacrifice, and everyone lived.~

~Something I'm sure you of all mon would understand.~

Vee: -wide-eyed-

Hecate: -small exhale, through the nose- ~...the J-Team fights. Go to them.~

Hecate used Heal Pulse!

Vee: <W-wait. You—you haven't actually explained anything—>

Dr. Ironspine: <Hold on, is that a fucking black hole—?>

Logan: Hey, eyes on me.

Dr. Ironspine: <As if you wouldn't prefer me to be distracted by some fascinating scientific phenomena.>

Logan: -dodging a blast- Well, if I want you to help me—

Dr. Ironspine: -zipping between Styler coils- <Fuck off.>

-they rip off a few more chords flying around, Ironspine's resolve visibly weakening-

Addie: -shouting down- <Kid, get out of there before you die that is not a solo figh—!>

-and all of them are sawn from the sky by a long-range Psychic-

-flat-footed, even boosted, the Styler's shield nearly snaps in half-

Dr. Ironspine: -resisting Psychic- <Logan!>

-she discards a shell of burnt-out Umbrate, diving to—what?-

-blip-

-and someone arrives-

Pollen: -trembling in fear and rage, just...looks at them-

Megan: -on the ground, holding Vee by the face, whispering- Why would you do that? Why—?

-her voice breaks, and Vee-

Vee: <I can't—>

-staring back- <I can't allow Carmilla to happen again. If that means we gotta walk away, then we walk. Even—even if—>

Pippy: -even though he can't take his eyes off of her- <Guys…>

-and their gaze is drawn to the war raging all around them-

-and in a flash of red, numerous Pokémon are Teleported through another active portal-

Luxor: -catching sight of them- <Logan!>

Phoebe the Plusle: <Oh shit, is that them?>

Deim the Shiny Minun: -alarmed?- <...they look rough.>

Luxor: <I'm going after them.>

Zippy: <What? No! It's awful out there?>

Zippy: <Hey, I got you all here!>

Luxor: <To do what? What do we do?>

-it's too much-

-it's all just too much-

-Megan catches sight of the electricity spread over the earth-

Megan: -tight inhale-

-and soon, a Rain Dance spreads clouds across the alien battlefield-

Megan: -shaky exhale-

-her memory's screaming-

-her heart is screaming-

-there's probably some conversations she'll hate in her future-

-ill-prepared, aimless, worthless-

-she's stressed past her limit, overloaded, terrified-

War! vs. Fleetbreaker Megan Nguyen!

-Megan has had it-

Megan: -standing and pointing at the opposing army, voice still hoarse- Armageddon.

(-the call makes its way outward-)

Luxor used Thunder!
Mane used Thunder!
Addie used Thunder!

-leaders trace their way between the storm and the static, trembling, hesitant arms of charge outstretched-

(-and the call is taken up-)

Phoebe used Thunder!
Deim used Thunder!
Zippy used Thunder!

-they reach for one another, closer and closer, and-

Dr. Ironspine: -chuckles, raising her weapon at the sky-

Dr. Ironspine used Thunder!

-connect-

-and through the airships and army, between the cloud layer and the ground, all the charge expends itself as a blazing flood of pure, unfettered electricity-

Logan: -startling to full consciousness- !

-a sky full of lightning-

Styler!Wisp: -amid the cacophony- Styler battery full.

Functions ready? :D

Logan: -refulgent- …!

-and they loose a wall of pure sound, indistinct from the roar of thunder itself-

Logan and Addie used Ion Deluge!

-laced with power-

Allies' Normal-type moves became Electric-type!

Electric-type moves are boosted by the Electric Terrain!

-the force and number of the jets doubles as they're overtaken by overgrowth-

-the earth erupts into a familiar marsh, slowing their advance-

-some—a Swampert, a Palpitoad, what look to be an assortment of zombies—fall outright, and innumerable others are blasted skyward, but still they come-

???: Fire Pledge.

-and the force redoubles as the entire marsh erupts into a pillar of blazing flame-

Megan: !

Abilene: !

-the heat and force of the shockwave washes over them, but Megan races out from cover nonetheless-

Abilene: Megan—!

-she scrambles out and looks up on top of the little fort they've made for themselves, and sees-

-atop an Arcanine, an armored figure sits-

-dark skin, black hair dyed red at the ends, currently wincing at the conflagration before him, an Emboar by his side-

Megan: -waving- Hiro!

Hiro Alíthea, Scion of the Hero of Truth: Uh, hi!


Zippy: -exasperated- <Logan lay down.>

Logan: I'm fine I'm fine I'm fine just let me go say hi and make sure the fight's going okay—

Zippy: <You're visibly using Batteries as adrenaline packs!>

Logan: -loading another into their Styler- And so I'll be fine.

Wisp: @-@

Zippy: The Auric recoil—! Addie, knock some sense into—

Addie: -eating a Cell Battery- Hm?

Zippy: -scream-

Ranger HQ — Past

Alyssa: Yeah, um, I only really knew the Illusion Project stuff really well. Because, um, that's who the J-Team were fighting when they were there. And the superheroes. I know the superheroes.

Chateau d'Avarice

Kaguya!Changeling: <I'm gonna be the... one to...>

-The sound of the Grasswhistle sets in, and Changeling's fighting stance droops, before they start to sink to a sleeping position.-

-And then Nemean Lion's Crunch rips out their stuffing again, leaving them an open target for the rest of the attacks to send them flying toward the wall.-

Changeling: @ʍ@

-And it's that moment when the ceiling explodes.-

-Chunks of the ceiling come falling, as well as two figures. The first, a feminine figure with long dark hair, as well as an arrow embedded in her chest with a long chain attached to the end, flails as she hits the ground. Her form briefly flickers to that of a blonde girl with an eyepatch over one eye.-

-Paula and Rose recognize this form immediately.-

Paula: Kirsten! :D

Rose: Oh gods it's the girl who crawled out of Jake's TV

-The second figure, who seems to have much better control over his fall, appears to be a fairly stereotypical, slightly exaggerated court jester. Dressed in blue and green, with an unusually round face.-

The Clown of the House: <Hee hee, now we have more friends, how wonderful!>

-The figure resembling Kirsten groans, picking herself up and looking at the party.-

Cognitive Kirsten: ...Ah, son of a bitch. PAULA!

Paula: Kirsten!!! :D

Cog!Kirsten: >:(

Rose: Hello??? Can we declare revenge later? Correct me if I'm wrong, but that creepy clown seems like our bigger issue!

Cog!Kirsten: Urgh, fine!

-Her form shifts back to the deathly-pale chained woman.-

-Royal sighs in relief as the weird Mimikyu is defeated only for the circus to show up-

Royal: Wait, you know her? And the weird jester? What even is going on here?

Ultra Badlands

Cheri Merlin: Ugh, just let me kill you.


-A Draco Meteor from Mauve and a Boomburst from Noivern!Kolemm supplements the Searing Sunraze Smash tearing into Ultra Cheri La-

Ultra Cheri La: Rrrrr... Fools! FOOOOOLS!

-There is a blinding flash of light-
