He took his second shot swiftly as well, the sting down his throat numbing as the booze began to dull his senses.2/5
-Pent stares at the Sobble for a few moments, rather intrigued by the small lizard-
Right, yes. The security work. That's related to something I was going to talk about to Tagg... When I can get ahold of him, you know how it is...
I am not officially taking the gym challenge.
Isbrand: "I either wanna die with a sword in my hand or a girl betw-"
-She blushes and chugs more whiskey.-
-Kaiiseii wordlessly smiles and stands up.-
-He looks up at Des, glad his long arms can overcome the seven inch height difference. He takes Des's hat and puts it on himself, placing the crown of daisies and white roses on the taller cowboy's head.-
Kaiiseii: "Hey Dessy?"
Channah: -to DS- Fucking truth.
"That is correct Colton," Autumn said, "Using a nutrient rich mineral water we grow plants, which will be important for short term habitation as the dome will support proper greenery."
At Des's question, Autumn looked sad and uncomfortable, "I don't like to say much more beyond cracking the joke that I'm far enough away."
They took a deep breath, slapped their cheeks a bit and smiled, "More importantly. We have a tour to do. Seems everyone is fine with seeing the artifacts we found. Tassa I understand you're our ambassador. Which means we have a nicer suite set up for you."
Tassa blushed a bit, "Oh no no it's fine. I'd rather not be treated like royalty."
<I would however!> Ganon added.
Autumn didn't understand him and so ignored him, "Alright if you'll follow me to the Tram system, we're a bit Black Mesa here, but without the electrified toxic waste."
"Hehe. Check it out, Issy. Two shots in and already losing it."
She takes third.
"I'm glad we did all that training. I wouldn't mind dying in the arms of a girl myself."
Des ducked down a bit to help Kaiiseii place the wreath of flowers on his head. He was blushing madly the whole time, never taking his eyes off of the future boi.
"Oh, how come you won't be taking it on?"
He gave Pent a look or concern.
"Right. Sorry if I brought up bad memories. If it means anything I've had a rough family history to."
He followed Autumn towards the Tram System.
"Black Messa, huh? See any enigmatic people in suits walking around lately?"

-Pent just kinda silently gestured at himself in response to Des' quip-
I am officially stepping away from J-Team activities apart from prior commitments with Clavis Industries and Captain Silas Grant. I am sure you know of those. To both the public and the J-Team at large, I am going to go to Angela to work on a new album.
-He lingers on the words, trying to get the right inflection for what he was implying-
I do not think it would be wise for me to officially support their endeavors at this time. As such I, Pentigan, will not be taking the Galar gym challenge.
Kim: “Parallel universes...?” (She looks between the two Alduins.) “So... which one of you is the original and which one is from the parallel universe...?”
Allowing for Lita to have that little bit of banter, Colton took the opportunity to shake a little sobriety into himself before drinking, looking no worse off after. Check cleared! 3/6
"... Right about what?" He asked Autumn.

-Lucius looks rather surprised by Halis's comment, but responds to them with a smile nonetheless.-
Lucius: Heh, thanks, kid. I dunno what I've done to earn that trust, but I couldn't ask for a better vote of confidence. And hey, if you're planning to stick around in Galar, I might be able to provide some company. Not that we need to start travelling together again or anything, but... well, I've been away from society for a while now. Maybe I could do with a holiday from the holiday.
Halis: "We can go places together, sure! I usually end up riding Asterios when I go on long trips, though, the walking uses up a lot of energy I'd rather spend on other stuff."
They try to climb up to demonstrate, but they're too short to reach, so they end up just flailing around a bit trying to do so.
Halis: "Mehhhh, c'mon... I can do this most of the time..."
Asterios sighs and lowers himself a bit to let them on, at which point they act like that whole bit from a couple seconds ago never happened.
Halis: "See? Like this. He's very sturdy so he can walk for miles and miles and miles and miles and... uh, miles!"
Asterios: <Not that far. Far enough.>
Halis: "You might be able to fit too, Luci, especially when I'm taking up less space like this. Wanna try?"
They're giving Lucius a happy look, blissfully unaware of if this will actually work out or not. Asterios, meanwhile, doesn't seem to care if Lucius tries or not.
-To DS and Channah-
Well... hopefully the next time we go as a group to Kalos it'll be better, summer 2018 was also bad because that's when Mobius attacked us in Lumiose. And I got very insistent on us not parking the Stormchaser in city centers anymore.
Cam: -Fires a blast of water at a Rookidee-
-Throws a Poké Ball, which sucks them in-
Lita cocked an eyebrow and brought shot number four up to her lips.
"Still some fight left in you?"
Des nodded, his eyes lighting up in understanding.
"I see. So, anybody you and I both know taking on the challenge? Personally I can't wait. I wanna see what this Dynamaxing is all about."
Des blinked at Pent.
"..Oh. Right. 'Mystery Man'."
"I don't know how long I can keep going; vodka's new to me," Colton confessed as he pounded it. "And I'm not going to give up just yet - I've drunk my coworkers under tables before, and I'm not getting rusty yet." Check cleared! 4/7
Well, a little bird told me that once they get a starter and signs up proper at Motostoke Arena... Well a little bird will be taking the challenge.
-He slips a black feather from his pocket and waggles it-
-Lucius grins at Halis's offer.-
Lucius: Sure, why not? Sounds like fun, as long as Aster here doesn't mind. It's not like I weight that much anyway, and it probably beats having Maul dick me around with teleportation mishaps...
-He attempts to mount Asterios. He may experience similar difficulties doing so, seeing as being much taller than Halis still leaves him under the height restrictions for most rollercoasters.-
It ends up being a surprisingly easy mount, helped by the fact that Halis is smaller than usual, though they do scoot over a bit to make sure Lucius is comfortable.
Asterios: <...Only because they're allowing it.>
Halis: "Mutual trust and friendship is fun! Anyway, the thingy's still going on, but it's good to know you can ride with us when we do get going. I am a bit worried if I, uh, go back to being 'big' again it might not work as well, though...? Iunno, maybe that's a dumb thing to worry about..."
Lita knocked back her fourth. She wiped her mouth and leaned a little onto the bar.
He tracked the feather's movements again, much like he did during the wedding.
"Welp, I'm excited. Er...um, maybe that's not the right way to phrase it."
He looked down, blushing a bit.
"Uh, I have a goal if you're interested. In addition to beating the league I'd like to catch all the new Pokemon. Sniper here is the first..."
He dug out a Pokeball and let out a Rookidee that perched on his shoulder.
"And this is Baltimore."
The smol bird chirped and saluted.
Kaiiseii: "I've been doing a lot of thinking and reflection lately...are you challenging the Galar league?"
Channah: Hmm... Okay. Everyone goes into the PC except Korexis -
Channah: - and Hale.
Channah: Everyone else, see you in like 2 years or whatever.
Channah: That was the fakest crying I've ever heard. Okay, I'm out.
Titus: <Don't do anything we wouldn't do!>
Liberty: <Don't let that boy alone with our baby girl for too long, Halesy!>
Channah: -withdraws her victims and gets out while she still can-
Dolabella: <... Now what?>
Mari: <Hmmm~! Wouldn't it be nice if we could go on our OWN adventure, while they have theirs?? I SO want to see this region!!!>
Lo: <Our orders were to stay in the PC - >
Dolabella: <And rot. Look at what happened to these two - -nudges Mari and Aztec Camera- No offense.>
Mari: <None taken!!>
Dolabella: <Actually I meant it. Anyway, we should think of something to occupy ourselves with. Unless you all want to marathon Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba with me again.>
-Lo groans as the others begin plotting-
Channah: Um. Where the heck am I gonna get a starter? -paces-
???: -light [Welsh] accent- I'm telling you Rock, the picture just keeps getting better and better.
-a smirking man with short purple hair and red eyes appears out of the gloom, with a Mawile at his side-
Forward Guy: -leering at Channah- Oh, yeah. Especially in crystal-clear HD. -grins- Hallo.
Male Mawile: <Jist ignare him.>
Channah: -eye twitches-
Forward Guy: -sidles up- And where did you come from?
Forward Guy: Ahh, the shy type, are we? I can work with that. Definitely...
Channah: Okay, who the f-
Forward Guy: I've one here, doll. -holds out a pokeball-
Channah: -grimaces- What?
Forward Guy: Don't be shy. I've already trained mine up! See? -sends out a Sobble from another ball-
Male Sobble: <This is not going to end well.>
Channah: The fuck are you talking about?
Forward Guy: A starter, of course! My agent gave me two, why I don't know. I don't go in much for lagomorphs, what can I say.
Channah: -eyes him warily-
Forward Guy: Ugh, c'mon. It's not booby-trapped or anything. And, look. I heard you muttering about a starter, and I'd really like to help a fellow newbie out. Especially one who's as hot as I am. Check it out. -sends out a Scorbunny-
Male Scorbunny: -jazz hands-
Forward Guy: Isn't he cute? Absolutely darling. -rubs the Scorbunny's ears- If you don't want him, he's just going to one of my little cousins. But I have a good feeling about you! -sighs-
Mawile: <Jist take et n git oot. It's the fastest way tae git him oot a yer face.>
Channah: -catches the Scorbunny's pokeball without breaking eye contact with the bizarre stranger- ...
Forward Guy: -lights up- Awesome, we're starter buddies now! Oh, and um - -looks shifty- Don't tell anyone you saw me here, okay love? Thanks. Toodles! -takes off, mons in tow-
Channah: -bewildered- 0_o
-Channah is following Tagg, while the Scorbunny dances alongside her-
Channah: -watching the catch- Nice.
Giratina: <What happened in Kalos again? When you're as old as I am these start to blur together...>
Human!Ammy: -to Shaun- Thank you!
Umbra: -to Evelyn- Yes?
Alduin: <I'm the original!>
Alduin-B: -sighs- <Yes he is.>
First time... I'd rather not go into that again.
Thanks, I missed doing this.
-Watches as a Wooloo rolls by, a Berry in her mouth and some disgruntled looking Nickit chasing after her-
Guess the thieves got stolen from.
Channah: -sees a Skwovet- Hrm. Go, Jack!
Jack the Scorbunny: -tap-dances his way into a Tackle, knocking it out with a critical hit-
Channah: Okay. Could do without the dancing, though.
Jack: <I just gots these dancing feets!>
-Pent looks immediately interested in the small bird, leaning in to get a good look-
Oh hello, what are you? Are you a... Oh I- someone will definitely try and get one of you.
-He smiles and steps back-
I really need to get a dex upgrade...
That's just what Scorbunny do.
-The Wooloo manages to get away from the Nickit and starts eating said Berry-
Wooloo: <Hah, that's what those foxes get!>
<What are you lot looking at?>
Cam: -To me- <This Wooloo would be a good match for our group, I've seen her around before.>
Well she's definitely got the cleverness down, the wool amount would suggest Fluffy as her Ability.
Wooloo: -Slightly indignant- <I'm right here you know, what's in it for me anyway?>
-Cam and I look to each other-
Bigger scores than just the local Nickit, eventually, I can guarantee that.
Wooloo: <Hmm... it has gotten pretty boring here lately, could definitely use a change of scenery.>
<But, I'm not going without a battle first, don't want the local mons thinking I've gotten soft.>
