Sylveon used Heal Bell.
Sunny used Wish.
Pyukumuku used Purify.
Hopefully that helped.
Roy, Sean and Colton blinked out for a moment, delivering brutal kicks, punches and slashes to the Fanatic.
Catelyn: Hey, Ivan. Papa was hoping to discuss something with you so we decided to invite you over to our place for dinner. You remember my brother, right? Unless you met him in disguise like the last couple of times he's met new people.
Thierry: Bonjour. He wants to discuss business however briefly, then have Christmas eve dinner at our place.
Catelyn: Couldn't they have talked about this in the office?
Thierry: By the sound of father's tone this seems like something that came up just recently.
The topside is a mess. There isn't more than a meter's worth of undented or undamaged metal or wood to be seen in any one place. Anything not dented by intense water pressure is slashed, anything not slashed is melted, anything not melted is just generally in pieces.
In the middle of the scene, beaming proudly as she approaches the new arrivals, is a teenage girl wearing a fur-like cost resembling a Zangoose.
Fuka: Hey, Lucy and Goosey are tuckered out after all that exercise, so they'll need to rest a bit. But Gyari is still raring to go if we need some cover water!
-Ivan looks down at his ceremonial Christmas... pajamas.-
Ivan: "Of course. Give me a few minutes to get dressed, why don't you."
-He retreats into his house for a few minutes and returns in his regular garb, pink as it is.-
Ivan: "Let's go."
Me: I see what you mean, Kim. And I'm sure I can help you. Daijobu.* It's okay.
Piku-chan: <I'm sure we would know just the place to find a super-cool Pokémon.>
Me: -to Santa- Santa... Would you mind at all if I asked who that Pokémon is?
Gobo: -laughs heartily- I would expect nothing less...
Evelyn: Umm... Hi?
-Ian sees the Kanto? Pokémon as they appear from the forest-
Me: What the-?!
Piku-chan: <Those are the weirdest looking Bulbasaurs I have ever seen in my life...>
Oshawittle: <Well, whatever they are, we must stop them from causing a ruckus if we are to save The Multiverse from that... thing!>
Me: Right you are, Oshawittle! Now, get ready! Piku-chan, Oshawittle... Freezing Shell X-Slash!
-Piku-chan and Oshawittle tilt their heads quizzically for a second, until they realize what moves they can use, and nod in understanding.-
-Oshawittle draws his blade and freezes it with Ice Beam, changing Razor Shell to Freezing Shell Blade, then looks over at Piku-chan-
-Piku-chan's tail begins to glow with a silvery metallic shine as he looks over at Oshawittle-
Oshawittle: <Ready, old chum?>
Piku-chan: <Ready when you are!>
Oshawittle and Piku-chan: <Let's do this!>
-Piku-chan and Oshawittle run to different sides of The Fanatic, nod once, then run up to the Fanatic and jump-
-Piku-chan unleashes his Iron Tail attack as Oshawittle slashes at the glitch with his Freezing Shell Blade in a X-Formation-
Dual Tech: Freezing Shell X-Slash
Kim: "Oh, thank you, Ian. The only question now is... where do we start?"
Mutineer: Captain, Lieutenant Cross is not in the ship! Last time we saw him, he was being dragged by a scyther and loaded into a boat, but we've no idea where that boat was headed.
Captain Macraul: Blast it. We could only hope that boat reaches the Cumberbatch.
Captain Macraul: Speaking of. Young lady, direct your gyarados' attention to the Cumberbatch. Make sure they know better than to attempt another shot at the Carrey.
He turns to Gobo.
Captain Macraul: If you have a new gunner at the controls, tell them that it's time to get serious. They've got the full firepower of the world's most advanced battlecruiser at their fingertips. As for your young companion and other accomplices, meet me at the bridge. Things are about to get violent.
Thierry: Saddle up. We're taking my car.

Gobo: I'm already on it. Evelyn...?
Evelyn: You don't need to tell ME twice! Come on, Hatty! We gotta get to the bridge!
-To Captain Macraul, it would look like Evelyn was just talking to her hat before she ran off to the bridge-
Gobo: Come along, Raichu.
Raichu: <We have our mission! Time to blow the Interpol Authority outta the water!>
Gobo: Now, you're speakin' my language!
-on communicator- Gunner, this is Gobo! Do you read me? It's time we got serious! Fire at the Cumberbatch on Captain Macraul's mark!
Me: Hmm... That does sound like an issue... Which region do you want to explore first?

Kim: (pauses for a few moments) "Sinnoh and Alola. There are two Pokemon I'm looking for specifically that I've been wanting to catch... maybe Johto would work, too..."
Edited by OPALGARNET16 on Jan 3rd 2020 at 8:28:17 AM
-Ian writes the list down mentally-
Me: Sinnoh... Alola... Johto... What kind of Pokémon are you looking for?
Kim: "Specifically? Turtwig, Popplio, and Sentret. Or Wooper. Or Chinchou. Or Gligar. They're all cute."
Edited by OPALGARNET16 on Jan 3rd 2020 at 8:47:39 AM
-Everyone who isn't a Steel type stumble under the attacks.-
Elizabeth: "...we barely scratched it..."
Lyra: <So we hit harder! Oberon, to me!>
Oberon: <Begone, daemons! Returneth to the void from whence thoust cams!>
-Lyra and Oberon rush into combat with the Classic!Mons, aided by Luca's grunts and Jin.-
Mafioso: "The Dona better pay us good for this merda!"
-Shaun grits his teeth. Tsunami digs into the ground and bides her time.-
-Celena fires a Steel Cannon at the same spot, Ace following up with a Brave Bird.-
No. Not yet. Just draw in as much power as you can without hurting Pent's attacks.
-Everyone else repeats the same attacks, Jessica's team aiming for the same spot as Celena.-
-Luca's still shooting the gun for as long as his pact powers it, which will probably be this round of combat.-
-Ivan sits patiently waiting for their arrival.-
Me: Hmm... Interesting choices.
-Ian checks his Pokédex-
Pokédex: Turtwig, The Tiny Leaf Pokémon. A Grass type. One of the three starter Pokémon of the Sinnoh Region, it undertakes photosynthesis with its body, making oxygen. The leaf on its head wilts if it is thirsty. Made from soil, the shell on its back hardens when it drinks water.
Popplio, The Sea Lion Pokémon. A Water type. One of the three starter Pokémon of the Alola Region, this Pokémon can control water bubbles. It practices diligently so it can learn to make big bubbles. The balloons it inflates with its nose grow larger and larger as it practices day by day.
Sentret, The Scout Pokémon. A Normal type. When Sentret sleeps, it does so while another stands guard. The sentry wakes the others at the first sign of danger. When this Pokémon becomes separated from its pack, it becomes incapable of sleep due to fear. It stands on its tail so it can see a long way. If it spots an enemy, it cries loudly to warn its kind.
Wooper, The Water Fish Pokémon. A Water and Ground type. It lives in cold water, half burying itself in mud at the bottom to sleep. Wooper usually live in water but come out onto land seeking food occasionally. On land, they coat their bodies with a gooey, toxic film.
Chinchou, The Angler Pokémon. A Water and Electric type. It shoots positive and negative electricity between the tips of its two antennae and zaps its enemies. This Pokémon flashes its electric lights to exchange signals with others.
Gligar, The Fly Scorpion Pokémon. A Ground and Flying type. It glides using the membrane attached to its arms and legs, and attacks the face of its prey with its claws. It builds its nest on a steep cliff. When it is done gliding, it hops along the ground back to its nest.
Me: Okay... Which Pokémon do you want to go after first?
VS The Fanatic
Nessie-noticeing the Duel Tech Piku-chan and Oshawittle used- <Tesla I have an idea.>
Tesla: <What is it?>
<You saw what that Pikachu and Oshawot do right?>
<Yes, what about them?>
<No silly! I mean what they did. The Oshawott used a Ice Beam on his Shell Blade. Then Pikachu used a Iron Tail, combing their moves. We might be able to defeat it faster if we combine our moves.>
<Good idea, I like the sound of that! But what moves should we use?>
<Hmm... How about I use Ice Beam, and you use Thunderbolt. You surround the Ice Beam with electricity made by the Thunderbolt, turning it into a electrical Ice Beam.>
<Great idea! Let's give it a try!
-Nessie used Ice Beam and Tesla used Thunderbolt on the Ice Beam makeing the Ice Beam turn yellow with the Thunderbolt around it. Nessie then fired it at The Fanatic-
Duel Tech: Thundering Ice Shock
Kim: "Turtwig. Then Sentret. Then Gligar."
-Latias laughs again and joins in with the psionic assault by using Psychic before Susan grabs her wingtip and tugs a little-
Susan: Dear? Calm. Down.
Latias: <B-but it's... Aww, fine...>
-She lands and regains her human illusion-
-So here's the thing about the strange creatures that Asher brought to the fight: They are Steel-type, they are small and almost all of them have the pitiful health pool of 1HP or 2HP. So naturally when a Max move with Ao E hits the domes of Aron and Myr a majority of the domes just... Dissolve. The Aron faint and the Myr dissipate into raw mana and shiny silver skull-shaped lumps. The Juggernauts fare better due to their beefier stats... Until the Myr start vanishing at which case they both start shrinking down and providing less coverage (but still stand. Darksteel is indestructible)-
Asher: No no no...
-She fishes in her bag for something more to bring out but only finds a mass of gears-
Asher: Grindclock. Useless?
-The one thing that can stop Pent's endless beam spam happens, he's sent sprawling from the hit and after carving a bit of a rut into the floor the Gasters splutter out-
Okay. New option.
-He climbs to his feet and holds the Pen tight-
Make a monster around me, like a suit of armor and fury.
-There was a commotion in the forecourt of the Radio Tower, a group of citizens and news crews crowding with each other to respond to a radio message that went out across the region an hour before: "I am the muse of rhythm and song, and I am here."-
-At the center of the crowd, flanked by some of the Tower's security guards was a podium behind which stood an excited young woman with green hair and a black dress-
Mystery Woman: Ahem, may I have your attention?
-The crowd quiets and looks expectantly (if a little skeptically)-
Mystery Woman: An introduction then, I am the legendary Meloetta. I am a muse, my spheres are song and dance. I chose this form, here and now, to make my statements clear for broadcast.
-She sees the look in their eyes and sighs before reverting to her true form, eliciting a few gasps from the audience. After a moment to show that she is real, she returns to the form that allows her to speak clearer to these mortals-
Meloetta: The sky is whole once more, the world is for a moment at peace. I wish to bring a season of reverie through the means I have, to make this moment of peace last as long as I can cling to it. Which is why, I am announcing a competition.
-She brings out a small object from under the podium, a rectangular slip of paper covered in gold leaf and [English] text-
Meloetta: I have distributed eight golden tickets out into the world, but not by mere chance. Four of these tickets have found their way to four groups that after this announcement may make themselves known at their own pace. The other four have been placed in an area of prominence aboard the airship Stormchaser, for those tickets are for whoever of the J-Team wishes to take them and form their own groups.
-There's some mild confusion, people conflicting other stories of gold tickets and latching onto the vague wording. Eventually someone chimes up-
Reporter: Dam Greene for QBL Media, what exactly is this all about Meloetta?
Meloetta: I thought it was obvious, but clearly I was mistaken. You see, this competition...
-She smiles as a banner behind her unfurls-
Meloetta: Is a godsblessed Battle of the Bands!
-True to her word, four golden tickets have been pinned to the J-Team Notice Board-
-Elizabeth and Gabrielle look at the board, look at each other, look at the board.-
Gabrielle: "Shall we start the year of right, Lizbeth?"
Elizabeth: "We shall."
Me: Well, Kim? What are we waiting for? Let's go!
She Is Lifted
Hey wait, come to think of it isn't this my first-
And then Megan closes the gap and Daydre's mind goes blank.
"Yeah, I guess it's mostly Wurmple that fill that niche?" Daydre likewise keeps her eyes on Megan, but moreso because she doesn't actually know where this place is and is following than anything else.
Daydre goes about recalling her mons before they can object (or get injured). Right as she reaches for Rowan's ball, the Ninetales jerks her hand away and holds out a Protect above the both of them.
"Wait, no- at least let me return you so you don't get-"
Rowan: <I am not about to let you get doused in poison by yourself just because you don't want me to get injured!>
Tiny cracks form in the barrier. More appear by the second as Rowan continues.
<It's easier for me to recover than you! And I feel like a failure because of all the times in recent memory I've let you get hurt!>
"But that's not-"
The barrier is almost in pieces, barely held together by Rowan's will.
<Just let me help you, okay?!>
The barrier cracks.
(And the second Ian says that, three golden tickets suddenly appear in front of her on a J-Team Notice Board.)
Kim: "Huh? What... what is this?"
(She and Paul approach the tickets, and she picks up one of them.)
Kim: "A... Battle of the Bands?"
Paul: <In Goldenrod City?>
(She and Paul suddenly look at each other, an idea forming in their heads.)
Both: " <THIS IS PERFECT!>"
Kim: (turns to Ian with newfound confidence) "Ian, forget the order. I'll be catching myself a Sentret and a Gligar first... FOR MY NEW BAND—! TO GOLDENROD!"
Paul: <You know, I think it would be a good idea if we invited Ian along, too...>
Kim: "Oh, yes... Ian, would you like to join the band?"

-Mia walks up to the others at the boats-
Mia: <Hey. What have I missed?>

-He fires Dragon Pulses and he rains fire from above-
-The kantomons continue their assault on the people on the ground-

Me: Huh? Bando no tatakai?* A Battle of the Bands?
Ever stir-crazy, some white-haired someone in a blue blazer was jogging down the halls of the Stormchaser, when he paused upon seeing the golden glare from the notice board.
"Hm," he hummed, snagging one and stuffing it in his pocket before continuing his jog.
"You what." Colton asked. "We're no songwriters, none of us are!"
"Cover bands are valid. Beside, I want to do this. Just imagine, Julius on bass, Sylveon on keys and you singing? I mean, you are good at karaoke."
He contemplated the words, staring at the plastic guitar leaning on a desk. "Maybe. Could probably start with something... relatively simple, and pick things up."
"That's the spirit."
