-This can only ever end well.-
-As Tanten rounds the corner, he comes face to face with the face of a man in dark clothing and a grim expression-
-Pent has not been sleeping much recently. He doesn't need much sleep, but he hasn't been getting that much-
-He looks a little spooky right now-
-This must be his punishment. The producers must have sent an assassin. Tanten knew he shouldn't have broken his contract in the middle of the ever-famous Selachian Month.-
Tanten: "Please, whatever they're paying you, I'll double it. Triple it. I'll give you my car!"

-Pent stands and stares, completely confused but keeping up a grim expression-
I've never had a car before. I probably don't have a license...
-Damn. He's gonna have to bring out the big bargaining chips if he wants to live.-
Tanten: "Look, I only save this for when I really need to make a deal, but..."
-Tanten pulls out a... regular rock. Literally nothing special about it. It's not even a geode.-
Tanten: "This is a magic geode. It will save you from being poisoned in the wild, even if you eat deadly foods."
-Tanten looks like he genuinely believes this to be true.-
-Pent stares at the rock, then up at Tanten, then back at the rock-
You are mistaken, that is the Slicer of Ti'pir Weir Isle.
-He tilts his head to the side-
Whoever sold that to you made one hell of a Persuasion roll. You? Not so much.
-Tanten takes Langston out of a ball.-
Tanten: "Use Toxic."
Langston: <What, on this guy?>
Tanten: "No, on me."
Langston: <...your funeral.>
-Langston fires a blast of poison at Tanten. He's still for a moment. Then...-
Tanten: "I don't feel so good."
-Pent's stance falters only once the absolute madlad successfully hurts himself trying to convince Pent that the stone is the real deal. That's when Pent feels the need to actually break his faux seriousness into actual legitimate seriousness because yeah now this random dude needs to get to hospital quick-
You're a dumbass, you know that?
-He quickly rests a hand on Tanten and one on Langston before assembling a super quick shade-giving Obscura dome to help Shadowport the three somewhere closer to a hosital-
-Tanten feels like he got run over by a bus.-
-Langston just sorta shrugs his wings and taps the button on his ball, recalling himself.-
-Tanten has no idea where he is. His vision is incredibly blurry.-
-Pent spends mere moments drifting, trying to locate an exit point before using it-
-Pent stumbles from a shadow into the Center. It wasn't quite where he was aiming for first but it was close enough-
N-need a medic over here, the dude's poisoned.
-Tanten is in a grassy meadow, chasing rare butterflies to show off to the camera.-
-In reality he's vomiting into a garbage can, but potato potahto.-
-After a brief moment of shock, two EMT's run over and pick Tanten up, gesturing for Pent to help them.-
EMT 1: "Skin shows sign of foreign entry, looks like a Toxic attack to me."
EMT 2, at Pent: "How did this happen?"
Okay this is going to be wild but he Toxic'd himself using one of his Pokemon to try and convince me he was immune to poison.
-Pent kinda looks bewildered about it himself but does try and help-
-They get Tanten on a table. EMT 1 steps back for a second and squints.-
EMT 1: "Wait, is this Tanten Lyore?"
EMT 2: "Oh my god it totally is, isn't it."
EMT 1: "Dude, we've gotta get a picture! I loved him in "True Tales from Eterna Forest".
EMT 2: "Mr. Lyore, could we-"
-Tanten throws up again.-
EMT 1: "Oh, right, he's dying. Sir, could you wait outside for a moment? We need to treat him."
-Pent gives a thumbs-up and steps out to go wander about for a while-
-A nurse steps into the waiting room.-
Nurse: "Mr. Lyore is now conscious again. We've gotten the toxins out, and he should be fine to be released now."
-Tanten walks slowly into the waiting room.-
Tanten: "oh arceus he followed me"
Kai: There was no obligation to get gifts, don't worry. I got gifts for people because I thought they'd like it, with no strings attached. You're good.
-Pent glanced up and just sorta stared-
Followed you? Man I made sure you didn't die there. Your stone's bunk.
You're... You're accusing me of being an assassin in a public place where the sole thing anyone has seen of us is me trying to save your life.
-He shrugs and stands up-
But fine, I'll leave and you can ramble on to someone else about your paranoia, friend.
As the attack happened, Sergey run or/and stumbled towards the Ops, trying his hardest to stay afoot during the maneuvering, trying to find somethign - anything where he could be useful
-Alli is suddenly a bit more introspective-looking-
La: -metaphorical eyebrow raise (do Dusk Mane Necrozma have eyebrows?)- <Daisy eh? I'll put in a good word in with the Tapu for you.>
note:The following segment is the culmination of a LOT of retcons and also is a tie in to a certain fic.
-Now to visit someone we haven't seen for a while-
-Chrome is here-
-He's looking around a marketplace-
-And he eventually spies a pink-haired teenager in old-fashioned clothing with a phantom Mew tail only Chrome can see◊-
-The Mew in disguise jumps, then turns around to face the Metagross-
Mithos: ~You! What are you doing here?!~
Chrome: ~I'm here to apologize.~
Mithos: ~Listen, I- Huh?~
Chrome: ~I realize now. What happened a thousand years ago. It wasn't your fault.~
Mithos: ~It... wasn't?~
Chrome: ~No. I was rash and careless. As I often am.~
Mithos: ~...Heh. Heh! Well if you learned how to admit it that's a step forward.~
~I'm sorry for how I acted too. It sucks things turned out the way they did...~
Chrome: ~I know. All we can do is move on. Speaking of which... You're buying toys there are you?~
-Mithos glances over to a large bag of toys he's holding-
Chrome: ~I've got a toy for you.~
-He produces a strange pendant, which Mithos takes-
Mithos: ~This feels... Feels like home...~
Chrome: It lets you access the Tree Of Beginning's Aura and Infinity Energy from anywhere and vice versa. I had the folks at PEFE make it.
Mithos: ~I... I could always use some of the Tree's crystals but they only lasted so long... This... I'm free! I'm free!~
Chrome: -chuckles- ~Where are you gonna go first?~
Mithos: ~Oh, oh, I can think of so many places... Oh, I know! Galar! So long suckers!~
-He turns into a Braviary and flies off. Tourists gasp in awe. Locals chuckle and shake their heads-
???: <You did the right thing.>
-Chrome turns to find a certain Shaymin hidden under the stands, next to a basket of Gracidea flowers-
Chrome: <...Thank you.>
Shaymin: -chuckles- <That said, I'm following him. He does need supervision. If I can keep track of him. Plus I've wanted to go to Galar myself.>
Chrome: -Chuckles- <All right.>
-thinks a bit-
Shaymin Persephone: <Yes?>
Chrome: <I haven't seen you as much lately. Why?>
Persephone: -smiles- <Simple. You don't need me as much anymore.>
-She touches one of the flowers, goes into Sky forme, and flies off after Mithos, to the same reaction from the crowd-
-Chrome thinks a bit-
(Watching the Caterpie get carried off) "This place is, uh... Interesting."
"Oh, yeah. That's, probably a good idea." .. And so she looks around for a table.
.. Man I probably should've gotten people gifts.
Daydre notices Alli's shift in mood. ".. Hm? You okay?"
Megan: Oh, yeah.
...honestly, I worry sometimes that my life's so weird that I wouldn't recognize normal if it hit me in the face.
But nope! It's weird all the way down: ^_^
...either that or I'm in too deep
-anyways, there's open tables by a nice, sunny window (surrounded by Caterpie), and a nice, secluded corner (surrounded by Caterpie)-
-Logan starts from where they seemed to be lost in thought-
Logan: -to Roy- Ah...
-smile- It is my job to find what people need to hear. It's no problem.
-holding out a hand- I'm Logan, by the way.
<I haven't—haven't done anything—to—>
-compoundeyes shining- <Th-thank you. Sincerely. I-I don't know what to say—>
-she breaks off, overwhelmed-
-the dimension shudders, just slightly-
-three keys go about their final preparations to lock away this chapter of the story-
-Eternatus' power flows rapidly back, and one two three points are readied to—-
ETERNAMAX ETERNATUS: -light crescendoing- <WISHES FOR THEE, WEE NOTHINGS!>
Thespi: <Wait what—>
-high in the sky Eternatus explodes, faint afterimages of disparate selves tugged to faraway realities-
-and Eternamax Eternatus shatters, sending a tumult of glowing rock raining down over the Ultra Space-
-the pieces range from boulders—luminous, beam-emitting boulders, falling far afield of the clustered group—to tiny shards and purple-and-red stones, small enough to fit into palms, scattering harmlessly everywhere-
-they're very purloinable-
-and also possibly radioactive, given the glowy, but they're neat-
Megan: -sharply- No!
-she's a bit too distracted to notice Alli's introspection...yet-
-whirl- I-I have gifts! That I remembered! Definitely!
-she breaks the hug, kind of staggers over to where her purse is, opens it-
-...digs around weirdly long for such a tiny hand bag, shoving both arms in up to the elbow-
Megan: -thunk- Here.
-a spherical gem gleaming in seven colors-
-from looking at it, it seems to be solid, uniform in composition, and roughly the size of an overinflated beach ball-
-intensely, holding it up next to her head- I know a mon that can carve this into the shape of your face.
-all that eye contact she doesn't make, she's making right now-
<Roy,> the Blaziken returned, grabbing Logan's hand. <My trainer's Colton.>
"Heh," said Unovan piped up, eyes still a little wet. "You... you say you find out what people need to hear? Heh, I can pick apart people too," he bragged, still being cradled in Roy's warm arms.
Warner, Xatu, Sunny and Ammy each tried to grab one of the glowy things falling from the sky in curiosity.

Alli: -snaps back to normal, mostly- Yeah, I'm... fine.
-Stares at the s p h e r e-
-Digitally, the J-Team gets-
Umbra: Are you sure we should have let Gino write the new invitations?
