Route 35, Johto

Kim: (thinking for a few moments) "Interesting..." (She takes the TM from him.) "This move would certainly help benefit Dio, but I don't know if just a TM will work, since it instantly teaches the Pokemon a move..."

(She pauses for a few more moments, before she snaps her fingers as an idea comes to her.)

Kim: "Got it." (she throws Dio's PokeBall) "Come on out, Dio!"

(And in an instant, the ball opens, and Dio materializes onto the ground, looking around in slight confusion.)

Dio: (pauses) <Huh. I'm being sent out already? What do you need me for, Kim?>

Kim: "Simple. Do you want to learn a Dark-type move?"

Dio: (instantly lights up) <YES! ABSOLUTELY yes, are you kidding? But not just any Dark-type move, you know. I'm looking to learn one of the greatest dark-type moves there is!>

Kim: (holding up the TM) "Payback?"

Dio: (hammily) <DARK PULSE!>

Kim: (slightly stunned): "Dark Pulse?"

Fanatamax Battle, VS The Fanatic

Me: -telepathically to Gudrunn- ~I understand... I don't think we've met, so I am Ian. I just want to tell you that you should never give up... You're not failing anyone... If anyone should believe in you, it's you. Make sure you believe in the Gudrunn that believes in you! That's all...~

-Ian thinks to himself "Looks like that giant skeleton dragon thing is on our side..."-

Me: Alright! Time to change things up! Piku-chan, use Thunderbolt! Raru, surprise The Fanatic with Shadow Sneak! Oshawittle, go for an Ice Aqua Jet!

-Piku-chan, Raru and Oshawittle nod as they separate for a moment to prepare their attacks-

-Piku-chan surrounds himself in electrical energy and fires a bolt of lightning at The Fanatic-

-Raru surrounds himself in shadowy energy and throws himself at the ground, sending a wave of shadow energy to a point behind The Fanatic, where a shadow copy of Raru is launched into the air, which then throws a punch and explodes-

-Oshawittle surrounds himself in water and flies up into the air, where he goes into a spin and unleashes an Ice Beam as he spins, freezing the Aqua Jet into an icy missile which flies right at The Fanatic-

Evelyn: How's the hypnosis looking, Kako?

Kako: -focusing on his attack- <Hard to tell... Can't really know if the Hypnosis is working when I don't know if my target even has EYES!>

Evelyn: -facepalms- Oy vey...

Kim: "I have no idea..."

Dio: (scoffs) <TMs?! Please...! I don't want to learn the move from some boring old TM! Then I'll just be able to use the move in an instant! Oh, no, no, no, no, no! I want to learn the move the way I learned all my other moves: the hard way! Training! Practicing! Actually sitting down and learning the move!>

(Hearing this, Kim pauses for a few moments.)

Kim: "Well, I don't know if you can eve-" (she pauses, an idea hitting her) "Wait a second, that's it!"

Dio: (blinks) <What's it?>

Kim: "Of course! The Prax Obscura! How could I have forgotten it?!"

Dio, Sinatra: (looking at each other in confusion) <The what- what- what- now?>

Kim: "The Prax Obscura? The ultimate guide to learning Dark and Ghost-type moves? You've never heard of it?!"

Sinatra: <Course we haven't!>

Paul: <That sounds like a good idea... but given Reh-ver's most recent interaction with you I don't know if he wants to talk to you again, you know?>

Sinatra, Dio: (confused): <'Reh -ver?'>"

Kim: (blinks) "Colton Rever? Author of the Prax Obscura, Second Edition?"

Sinatra, Dio: (now even more confused) <'REE- VER?'>

Dio: (points at Paul) <B-but you— you just said—>

Kim: "He says "Reh-ver," I say "Ree-ver"; let's call the whole thing off. Even though for the record, the latter is correct. Like I said. I'm a lingual consultant." (turns to Ian) "Anyways, Ian... you think going back to the Stormchaser and calling up Rever before we head off to Sinnoh is a good idea?"

Ersatz - Some time after the New Year starts

The door opened, and two pairs of eyes looked at each other. One brown, one blue.

One human, one feline.

One no older than 30, one no younger than 70.

<Are you here to buy something?> Nimbus asked Colton as he approached the counter.

"... There's no right answer," he admitted. "I'm just... curious. You save my great-grandfather's life, and I'm grateful. But, why? Why save some human you don't even know?"

<...Truth be told it was just kind of circumstance. We were nearby, and he just kind of saw me snag some lightning. I mean, I can't make my own,> he shrugged.

"Probably would have saved him all the same - lightning plus trees is dangerous."

<True, heh.> Nimbus laughed. <I guess that you do tend to make stories out of the unexplained.>

"But are they distorted through the lens of time?"


Alola, 1944

"Where's that stinkin' ghost?! Houndoom! Keep sniffing those shadows! It's gotta be hiding in one of them!"




<Yeah. It was a different time, though,> Nimbus comforted.

"That doesn't really make that any less consequential, does it? I never really knew him, so you telling me he hunted after Marshadow that... vehemently..." he trailed off.

A paw found itself on Colton's hand. <I wouldn't judge him based on one line and one day. So why are you?>

"... I guess so," he sighed. "Good talk."

A few minutes later

He left the store, a bag with a shirt or two inside. Where he was deposited, who knows.

Eternatus's Pressure!

Eternatus: -shriek- <NOT SUPPOSED TO EXIST?!>

-click click click click-


-a fleshless jawbone flaps, and this continuous roar thunders out over the battlefield-

Abilene: This could be bad.

Megan: What?

Abilene: That—creature, over there, they—

Thespi: -unresponsive- <—are the culmination of every sealed ETERNATUS, soon to fragment into individual realities like a snowflake on a needle tip, momentarily gleaming whole in the dark—>

-are headed this way, crushing the remains of the base in their wake-

-click click-



-all the shouts from the J-Team occur-

Eternatus: -stopping- <NOISOME NOTHINGS.>

Eternatus: -white blotches dilating- <...CAN'T SEE THEE.>

-click click crack-

Eternatus: <...NOT DARK ENOUGH.>

-the red clouds swirling around the field darken to a nightmarish purple-black, spewing in spirals out from Eternatus-

-sparks crackle from sky to earth, loose chunks of battlefield rubble float into accelerating orbits around the rising titan-

-and across the field, in a crackle of shadowy power, Pokemon start growing to the size of kaiju-

Abilene: -exhale- What now.

-Logan tells her-

Abilene: ...very, very bad.






But honestly, screw this guy. EVERYONE ATTACK!

-and Eternatus's core turns, too-


-nanoscopic wormholes tear in the ruddy expanse of their rib cage, power spilling forth-

-until the whole of them glows like the heart of a star, dark and terrible-


-they unleash a beam that expands overhead from a pillar to a pulsar-


-to a nova torrent to could swallow the Stormchaser, the Shadow Rout, the whole of the J-Fleet with immensities to spare-

-and collapsing, compacting similarly expanded wholes toward original states-


Amarin Household

Logan: -smile-

Addie: -pats this penguin pride, appreciating not having to throw down with an infant-


Logan: -...cough- I...may have had enough of the mortifying ordeal of being known for one night.

I think I'll head out? Thanks again, really.

Sinatra: <Yeah, same.>

Kim: "Alright, guys. We haven't got a moment to lose." (looks down at Dio) "You want to learn Dark Pulse, right?"

Dio: (excitedly) <You bet!>

Kim: "Well, then, let's get a move-on! Back to the Stormchaser, everybody!"

(And with that, the group promptly exit the Route 35 fields near Goldenrod and head back towards the Magnet Train. As they do so, Dio has one question:)

Dio: <Wait, what the heck is a "Stormchaser"?>


Viridian City, Kanto

(Eventually, the group departs from the Magnet Train and heads on board the Stormchaser, which is still waiting for them in Viridian City. Upon seeing the Stormchaser, Dio looks around at the ship in awe, as does Sinatra.)

The Stormchaser

Dio: (awestruck) <Whoa... This place is huge!>

Sinatra: <It's certainly bigger than any place I've ever been in.>

Kim: (smiling) "I'm glad you like it." (then, taking out her notebook again) "But we haven't got a moment to lose. Rever has to be around here somewhere... the question now is where..."

Me: Well, if there's one thing I know, it's that if Colton and Ammy teach Raru how to better use Hypnosis and learn Confuse Ray, they can teach Dio to use Dark Pulse.

Fanatamax Battle, VS The Fanatic

-Piku-chan, Raru and Oshawittle suddenly stop their attacks and glow with a bright red aura. Faint spirals can be seen spinning in their eyes-

Piku-chan: <I feel... strange...>

Oshawittle: <So do I...>

Raru: <Uurgh... My head... it feels like it's about to spin right off...>

-their bodies flash a bright red like Eternatus' core, and begin a surprising change...-

-Raru and Oshawittle begin to grow until they are almost 30 stories high-

-Piku-chan begins to grow... and change... his tail lengthens and starts to glow, his physique gets rounder, and the electricity stored in his cheeks grows to startling levels-

Raru and Oshawittle grew massive... It's Dynamax!

Piku-chan grew massive... Beyond Dynamax... It's Gigantamax!!!

G-Max Piku-chan: <Pi-kaiju!>

Raru: <Wh-Whoa... What's going on?>

Oshawittle: <We're HUGE!!!>

G-Max Piku-chan: <And it looks like our power has grown too... Lemme try something...>

-Piku-chan attempts to unleash a Thunderbolt on the Fanatic, but the power was so great, it summoned a storm overhead and brought three powerful lightning bolts down on The Glitch Monster's head-

Piku-chan used G-Max Volt Crash!

Wanderer: -Standing up as the dust clears- Sorry I'm late, between these two space was getting bent something fierce.

Shaun: "We still have a few tricks left!"

-Jessica's teams all fire Flamethrowers, Jessica adding in some of her Dragonite's Breath.-

-Shaun fires several more arrows at the Fanatic, culminating in a huge shadow lance the size of a Gyrados.-

Einbite: Arma Gigas Forme!

-The giant blade made of Hyul tech swings through the air and slams onto the fanatic.-

-A white and blue mink-mech bursts out of the Mobius base, wielding a golden longsword, a cannon arm, and a weird device on the shoulder. It flies towards the Fanatic.-

Vermilion City, today, the 5th

-Swift stars spray across the field, punching through dozens of snow sculptures of Nitro (though leaving the real one untouched)-

Nitro: <Hey! Not fair!>

Ever: Mmm...

Brie: Okay, last strike, Calamity! She can't guard this time! Stone Edge!

Calamity: <Endgame!>

-the Minior, in their light blue Core Form, plummets from the air, driving point-first into Nitro-

Critical Hit!

It's super effective!

Brie: Nice work.

Ever: Okay, but not, like...that nice.

Nitro: <I think my work was better, honestly.>

-she pops out of the ground next to Calamity, looking somewhat tired, but unscratched-

-as the Nitro Calamity attacked cracks into pieces-

Nitro's Substitute was broken!

Brie: ...Oh, come on.

Ever: It's always funny how nobody expects the second layer of defense. Stuck it in there while you were busy figuring out how to get past the Double Team. Nitro, wrap this up.

Nitro: <Hey, Cal, remember what happened after the meteors?>

Nitro used Ice Beam!

Calamity fainted!

Brie: ...Well.

Nitro: <I don't know what you expected.>

-Ever recalls her-

Ever: ...Look, Brie, I know you're a good trainer. You know you're a good trainer. You're quick on your feet, you come up with good plans on the fly (heh), your team is strong, and when it comes down to it, I'm pretty sure your technique is fundamentally better than mine. But it's not all about technique, and if you're giving this battle any less than your all, I guarantee you you're not gonna beat me.

Brie: You think I'm holding back?

Ever: I think Calamity wasn't your best pick against Nitro, and I think you know that.


Brie: She's hurt.

Ever: Yeah, and? It's been a solid year. Fuck, time flies. You're doing her healing no favors by keeping her in her ball, and you're doing her psyche no favors by keeping her out of fights like you did when we hit the Final Shell. You heard what she said in your Mindscape; she wants to be by your side. Denying her that isn't going to help her any. Hell, if you'd played the whole thing keeping her grounded, you'd probably have pissed her off, but she'd have been even better against Nitro.

Brie: ...

Ever: If you're up for another battle, I am. I'm not tired or anything.

-they smile beatifically. Brie scowls-

Brie: Is being an asshole really a necessary step of your battle strategy?

Ever: You know what they say about choleric tempers.

Brie: I've always thought of myself as sanguine.

Ever: Temperament's fake.


-Brie lets out a disgusted sigh-

Brie: I feel like I have to take this challenge, just to wipe that grin off your face.

Ever: There we go.

Brie: Alright then...Skyfire!

-she sends out the Charizard, who blinks-

Skyfire: <...We're fighting?>

Brie: (worriedly) Are you up for it?

Skyfire: <...Yes, of course. Why would I not be?>

-she flexes her wings, wincing slightly. Brie shares in the wince. Ever frowns-

Ever: (wiggling their arm) Feeling up to it?

Brie: Doctors say no.

Skyfire: -snorts-

Ever: Alright then. In that case...


Ever: ...Can you smell Mega Evolution?

Pleth: <As far as you know.>

Ever: ...Well, okay then.

-they snap their fingers, and pink light bursts from the Key Stone in their hand, mingling with the green light from Pleth's Sceptilite to form a cocoon of vines, which shatters to reveal a taller, more ornate Pleth-

Pleth: <Ready to go, Sky'?>

Skyfire: <Don't get cocky.>

Ever: Alright, Pleth, open up! Dragon Pulse!

Pleth: <I'll get as cocky as I like, thank you very much! Why be humble when you can do this?>

-she screams, waves of blue light radiating from her mouth-

...Man. It's like Muninn used to be, almost.

-the blast approaches Skyfire, who readies herself to move-


-and finds that this is completely unnecessary, when something teleports into the path of the attack-

???: <Oh, would you look at that?>

-before anyone else has time to cry out, the Dragon Pulse strikes the incoming party, with a bone-rattling shockwave-

Pleth: <...>

Skyfire: <...>

Brie: ...

Ever: ...

-and as the light fades, they're revealed completely unharmed-

Baccarat: <What a strange, lucky coincidence.>

Baccarat: <Don't look now—>

-and a cloud parts slightly, letting a beam of light shine down into Skyfire's eye. She flinches, and the Air Slash goes wide-

-nailing Pleth, who had circled around to give Skyfire a clear shot, right in the face. Pleth's own readied attack is derailed as she drops to her knees to steady herself, and a fissure bursts from where her claw meets the ground-

Ever: Wait, when did I teach you—

Pleth used Rock Tomb!

Skyfire: <Augh!>

Brie: Skyfire!

-she reaches for a Pokeball, but as Skyfire stumbles back from the explosion of rock, she bumps into Brie, who drops the ball. It bounces away-

Pleth: <Shit! Sorry, Sky', let's try—>

-and into Pleth's path as she dashes forwards for a Slash-

-at the speed she's going, a slip is pretty dramatic, and she slides into Skyfire at high speed, the Pokeball launched into Ever's face to stun them. Both mons collide with Brie, pinning her to the ground-

Pleth: <Oh, come on!>

Skyfire: -snarls-

Baccarat: <That was unlucky! You need to train more! Be like me~>

Ever: You can't train luck. It's not some kind of muscle you build up.

-Two pokemon amid my roster become embiggened-
-Oh brother, I get that you're not even half-dead but I have to admit you're cooked-
-One of which is a Lairon... Made of copper-
-Surprised you've been so nonconfrontive about little ol' me. I suppose I am rather small in this form-
Aaron the Copper Lairon: <Buff? Buffed!>
-I hope you realize the superiority of my methods before you cease to exist-
-It flings it's own verdigrised Steelspike. The other larger Pokemon was already large (and is thus now likely massive), thankfully it's hard to notice them-

Daev Jons: U-uh... Apo!?

Apophis, She In The Ruin: Oh how WONDERFUL! Behold, the grandeur of an Annihilation Entity!

-The hard-to-notice giant-giant snake tries to coil itself around the Fanatic (perhaps forgetting that as an Arbok, she has a toxin she never had as a mere giant snake)-

-Tibalt has no pokemon to be enlargened, and neither does the Cosmonaut now lingering at the edge of the battle (next to the figure in white). The landless king tries to make himself useful and edges over to the man just muttering about the moon under his breath-
-I'm going to have fun with this world once you're no longer a threat to it-

-she interrupts herself with a Thunderbolt, which Baccarat darts to one side to dodge, and then an Ice Beam, which is evaded just as quickly. Baccarat rockets skyward, and Atlantis ascends afterwards, firing shot after shot after her-

Brie: Hurricane! Don't let her have the air!

Baccarat: <Why aren't there more of your team? Did I catch you at a bad time? How unlucky of you.>

-she makes a hairpin turn, diving past Atlantis to get out of the way of the stormwind now occupying most of the sky. Atlantis swivels around just as fast, the winds whirling around her and driving Baccarat towards the ground-

Brie: Bonus of Hurricane? I can't hear your babbling.

Baccarat: <What a pity for you. You might learn someth—>

-she's slammed against the ground, but continues speaking-

<—ing. Like why you haven't actually gotten the advantage you think you have!>

-but Brie doesn't hear this, of course-

Brie: Finish her, Atlantis!

Atlantis: <This is for Skyfire! And quite frankly, for me!>

-she inhales, gathering up energy, and fires down a Hyper Beam-


Baccarat: <See?>

Dunsparce didn't stop being a thing or anything.

At The Cafe That Exists

Daydre picks one up, making that one anime sparkle eyes expression at them.


"... Is there something we're supposed to do at these places first I've never been to one"

Amarin Party

Daydre, as she's set down, just stares at the ground wide-eyed and faintly blushing. She kind of looks like she's still computing what just happened, but, like, not in a bad way.

"that was fun"

Vs. Fanatamax

At this point, Daydre's kind of backed up against a wall. None of her mons are in good enough shape to fight anymore- they're conscious, but Sylvie's barely keeping everyone together with Heal Pulses. Daydre helps, but there's only so much healing items can do.

Is now the time to start regretting past choices? Because that's what it's starting to look like

She looks around, in the vain hope that maybe some kind of magical problem solving object maybe landed nearby. .. But of course, there's nothing. Nothing but puddles of collected water Azure left from the moves he was using earlier.

The others.. Can take care of this right? Maybe I should just.. Daydre coughs.

The puddles bubble.

More and more, more than they should physically be able to- until a figure bursts out of them. The figure of an Empoleon that's very, very familiar to Daydre. He flips, landing rather gracefully on the ground in front of her. It takes Daydre a couple seconds to register what just happened, but when it does, a familiar mix of conflicted feelings knots in her stomach.


EMPEROR: -Looking around, extremely confused- <CONFOUND IT! This isn't Sinnoh! Where even Am I?!>

"You got lost again didn't you, you dumb bird?"

EMPEROR: <Hm? Wow, Rud- you!>

He turns, and his jaw drops in shock when he recognizes her.

<I've been looking for you! For ages! But that's not important right now! W Hat exactly is going on here?!!>

"It's.. too much to explain. Just get out of here, it's probably better not to get involved at this point."

EMPEROR: <But I Cannot simply LEAVE right now! This situation seems Dire- I can't just Go, my conscience would not allow it!>

Daydre groans a little. "It's not your problem, and I .. abandoned you, didn't I? Just leave me to this mess."

For the first time since he's arrived, EMPEROR'S expression changes- he looks a little hurt. Deflated. It takes him a moment to continue.

EMPEROR: <... You ... May not be my trainer anymore! BUT! You can still give me ""suggestions""!>


EMPEROR: <EVEN if we no longer have that kind of relationship.. It is alright to rely on me! I would like to think I have become somewhat reliable!>

Daydre looks away, a little guilty. "Is there something in the air today..? Rowan yelled at me about that too..."

EMPEROR looks at Daydre expectantly.


"Ugh, I can't say no to that face.. Go. Do what you want."

EMPEROR steps forward, suddenly wreathed in crackles of red and shadowy purple energy.

"Use as much power as you can."

With every step, the Empoleon grows larger- until he towers over the battlefield, clouds wreathing his horns.

"Crush him."

EMPEROR, giant though he is, turns to give Daydre a birdish grin.

Water accumulated from the air swirls around his beak- thin strands collecting into larger strands, collecting into a massive ball of water. And then the orb bursts into a concentrated beam- searingly fast and powerful, whatever droplets unfortunate enough to come off it vaporizing instantly upon release from the pressure.

EMPEROR used Max Hydro Cannon Geyser!

Courage need not be remembered, for it is never forgotten.

The Carrey

Captain Chroma: Well, there's a lot of things about my family that I'm not proud of in hindsight. I recalled how much of a spoiled brat I was as a child. It's not something I look back toward especially fondly.

Goober: You'll figure something out. And once you do, your mother can run it by our database to make sure it isn't taken. Don't think for one moment our job today is done, though. We had one victory, but this isn't going to make the lives of those undercover any easier.

Somewhere Hidden

Dolly: Christmas is saved, for now. The mission is a resounding success; let the Jammers everywhere know this. Once they're done with cleanup, have the field teams disperse and lie low. Keep the Carrey in International Waters until further notice. Since the IDPD might go for the plausible deniability route, we've a lot of datamining and leaking to do before any of our footage goes public. Over and out.

Dave: Dude, what took you so long?

Tommy Jr.: Well, when you gotta go, you gotta go.

Dave: Well I hope you can hold it in because we're not making another rest stop until we reach Roshan City.

Tommy, Jr.: I can deal with that.

Jean: Yes, let us feast. Christmas is a sophisticated event in Kalos. My family and I will guide you through the matters of etiquette as needed.

VS The Fanatic

-Nessie and Tesla suddenly stopped their attacks and glowed a bright red-

Nessie: <I feel weird>

Tesla: <Same>

-Suddenly they began to grow and get bigger and bigger-

-Nessie begans to grow and change. Her shell becomes much bigger and a circle of ice crystals circle around her-

-Tesla just got bigger-

Nessie and Tesla grew massive... it's Dynamaxing!

[[Nessie grew beyond massive... it's Gigamaxing!]]

[[teal:G-Max Nessie: <Lap-rus!>

Me: "What's going on? Why are you two huge? Nessie in general!"

G-Max Nessie: <It's appears our power has increased as well. Let me try something.>

-Nessie unleashed an Ice Beam at the Fanatic. It was so powerful that a storm appeared over the Fanatic-

You will give me an egg!

The Stormchaser

Kim: (suddenly looks up and notices Colton's door) "Oh, look. There's Rever's door." (smiles in determination) "Excellent. Now to just go up to him and see if he's there..."

Dio: (excitedly) <Oh... I can't wait...!>

(Kim promptly goes up to the door with her Pokemon following and knocks on it.)

Kim: "Hello? Rever?"

(no response)

Kim: "Rever...?"

(She looks inside, only to find that neither Colton nor anyone else are there. Disappointed, she sighs.)

Kim: "He's not there."

Paul: (sadly) <I told you...>

Dio: (devastated) <But then... how in the world am I going to learn Dark Pulse now...?>

(Kim pauses for a few moments- before the idea hits her.)

Kim: "Well... there is one other person associated with the Prax Obscura that I could talk to..."
