Royal: Right... Let's get out of here then!
-He runs out-
-The Galar Gang has gathered around the SATWHUL-
Locke: So what do we do now we're in Galar?
Archer: I'm figuring that out as I go along! :D
Locke: Same here... Mom and dad told me to find my own path so I am.
Jackie: -giving an odd look at Locke- I'm going to be checking out those Galarian forms, for my job I probably should be doing.
Jared: Fuck everything else, I'm taking on the leauge!
Neon: I might wanna take on the league too... But I just want to prove myself! To the J-Team and everyone else!
Julius: League sounds tempting but I just wanna see more of this world... Plus Sutur still needs dealing with.
Alex: I'm looking into this big Macro Cosmos thing. Seeing if they have anything useful... Speaking of! First...
-She hands small devices to the team-
Neon: What are these?
Alex: Box Links! They let you access Pokemon PC boxes from anywhere! You're welcome.
-Everyone oohs and ahs, and promptly starts re-arranging their parties digitally. Alex then turns to Locke, Archer, and Jared-
Alex: Also I had the PEFE folks make a call. You three will be meeting a special someone tomorrow...
Anthem: <Thank you Maui.>
-She giggles to herself and dismisses Eris-
Anthem: <The whole gang trashing through a mansion, let's do this!>
-Obscuric torches lined the halls of this cramped tunnel passage into the depths of the cliff face. Gale was in the middle of the pack, the unnamed Rookidee on her shoulder and Snom hiding in her bag as she followed behind the Gallade and Karliah with the Weavile and Thievul taking up the tail end. The shadowed procession continued through the halls, reaching a larger space set up to be more accommodating to use as a headquarters-
Karliah: <Alright, I will handle the guest. Everyone alright to just hang out?>
Mercer the Thievul: <Sure, I've got a job to get back to. I'll drop off the spoils when I get back.>
-The fox slips into the shadows and is gone-
Gallus the Gallade: <He better.>
Brynjolf the Weavile: <I'm telling you he's holding out on us. Probably has a stash somewhere we don't know about.>
-The two wander off to a side room, still chatting. Karliah leads the way deeper, where the light of the torches fades-
-Pentigan looks up from his explanation of the raid on the third Palace, a sparkle of recognition in his eyes-
There are gods in this world. Legendaries sure but there's others. The OLD MAN watches humanity as he always has, the glitches wield power that some have made cults to, Amaterasu... Ammy...
-He pauses and shakes his head-
It's very important that you know there are gods that aren't Legendaries. Not all of them are nice. Some of them are devils, like the god of thieves.
???: I have been learning a lot about your modern world lately, especially business.
-A woman in a long sits, slouched on a stone chair as phantasmal Murkrow and Rookidee-line phase in and out around her-
Nocturnal: And it feels like you have what they call an 'unauthorized use of my intellectual property'.
-Gale stands her ground, even as Karliah does the best she can to bow despite being a small birb-
I am sorry if my existence has offended you.
Nocturnal: Hm... I am not opposed to the identity, it's quaint. But I must know, why?
Reverence, mostly. I won't lie, your favor is fairly important to me.
-The look on the daedra's face is conflicted for a moment before she laughs-
Nocturnal: Really? I give my favor to gamblers, liars and thieves not costumed superheroes. Tell me, "Nightingale", what have you stolen lately?
-The Rookidee on Gale's shoulder stops preening for a moment-
Rookidee: <Couple yen, a few berries.>
... I've stolen something that even your chosen ones can't, I've stolen Hearts.
Nocturnal: ... Tell me more.
-Pentigan is silent for a few moments-
There's... There's something else, but I forgot. Just remember that, don't trust gods blindly, especially the ones that try to hide their bad side. Now, where were we?
-He leans back in his chair-
With the Palace ready for infiltration, all we had to do was send the Calling Card and take the prize. But that wasn't going to be as easy as we thought...
We can see the Wild Area for ourselves, it's like Galar's most famous natural feature.
-Rose and Paula have both arrived at the designated meeting room within the facility, awaiting everyone else's arrival.-
-Corrin stumbles in shortly after.-
Corrin: Aah, I'm sorry I'm late!
Rose: Relax, it's just starting. You're fine.
Paula: We're still waiting on folks to show up, you're not late at all.
-Corrin sighs in relief, and takes a seat.-
"'Eyyy,' good on 'em!" Colton slurred, throwing a right hook that hit his shoulder. Pained, he attempted to distract himself with a drink.8/7! One more before critical mass!
Colton leaned back in a chair, half-asleep. His Rage and Love blindfold was tied across his face, or at least something that looked like it.

Alduin: <Awww, he's a little cutie!>
-Julius walks in akwardly, giving a small wave to Corrin-
Kaylan: <Thanks! You too!> (beat) <By the way, I'm kind of craving marshmallows... you have any?>
Channah: Ooh, sounds good.
-Alduin hands Kim a very large bag of marshmallows-
-Locke, Archer, and Jared are lined up in front of one Leon-
Locke: So... You're the Champion right?
Leon: -sighs- Ex-champion. These days I mostly prevent Macro Cosmos from imploding.
Jared: Damn... we could have kicked your ass! Repeatedly!
Leon: Maybe, maybe not!
Archer: So wait, what ARE you here for?
Leon: Glad you asked! The PEFE folks convinced me to help the J-Team, and since you guys like getting new starters in new regions...
-he tosses three Pokeballs-
-A Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble emerge from them-
-Locke bends down to investigate the Grookey, who is holding a paintbrush instead of a normal stick-
Locke: Something's different about you... one could say funky. I like it.
Grookey: <Someone has taste at least.>
Scorbunny: <What's up, doc? I'm a chungus! I dunno what that means but I like how it sounds.>
Jared: I like this little dude. He and I are on the same level you know what I mean?
Archer: -to the Sobble- So what's your deal?
Sobble: -in a thick Southern drawl- <It's a complicated matter. Lookin' for clues in this mystery we call life.>
Archer: That's deep man.
Leon: I take you've made your picks?
Locke: -holding the Grookey- His name is Funky.
Jared: -holding the Scorbunny- His name is Bugs.
Archer: -holding the Sobble- His name is Benoit.
Leon: Good to hear!
-scratches his head-
Say... what ARE the J-Team and PEFE? I presumed they were important and that's why I came here but...
-It is then a second Leon walks up-
Leon A: Okay, you must be the first group of J-Teamers I give starters t-
Leon 1: ...
Leon A: ...
Archer, Locke, and Jared: ...
Their New Mons: ...
Leon A: ...You wandered into the wrong timeline again, didn't you, other Leon.
Leon 1: ...Not AGAIN.
Leon A: -chuckles- You three don't worry. He does that all the time and so do I.
Archer: Er, right.
Jared: Can we still keep these Pokemon?
Leon A: Sure thing!
Locke: -sigh- I guess Multiman couldn't fix someone being really bad with directions...

DS: (smiles) Yeah, I'm glad I was able to help them.
Rouge: (thinking) Listening to all this is getting me really excited for when we'll start training and stuff!
DS: So, you ended up exploring Ultra Space too, huh?
- DS and the others are exploring the area -
Linnéa: (approaching a wild Wooloo)
Linnéa's Sobble: <Linnéa! Didn't I warn you about the Wooloo? You never know what it might do if you startle it!>
- The Wooloo is startled by the Sobble's yelling and rolls away -
Linnéa's Sobble: <Phew... Looks like we're safe.>
Linnéa: Um... Thanks?
DS: (is approached by a wild Skwovet) Oh, look at this! A potential new friend for Sparq and Swindle! Rouge, are you ready?
Rouge: <Leave it to me!>

(Kim takes the bag of marshmallows and opens it, before giving it to Kaylan.)
Kaylan: (happily) <Yay~!> (He dives into the bag of marshmallows and eats some of them.) <Thank you...> (he pauses) <Um... name?>
Kaylan: <Oh~! Thank you, Alduin!> (he continues to eat the marshmallows, then pauses) <...you have a namesake?>
-Unconsciously rubbing my neck as I come in with a portable blackboard-
So we've got the Palace mostly claimed, all that remains is leaving Robinson a little Calling Card. Do we add "Here's to You" on it?
It was actually pretty interesting, except for the part where we almost died in post-apocalyptic Hau'oli.
-Grabbing Channah's hand and starting to move in the direction of the train station-
Let's go then, my dear.
Channah: -smiles at him and follows-
-Getting off, and looking at the pillars of red light in the distance-
Sure were a lot of posters for the Isle of Armor, would be nice to see it one day.
There was a place earlier when we were in Postwick... I sensed that sort of energy around it that tends to cover legendary spots, should've checked it out.

"Of course you'd have all the free time in the world. Most homeschoolers don't have that busy of a schedule...at least, none of the ones I knew did," Travis said in a way that sounded partially envious before adding, "I don't really study a lot of Pokemon myself, I just help people that do. I work with tech meant to be used by humans and Pokemon alike. A lot of it's trainer gadgets or stuff you'd find at a pokemart, but what I'm more interested in is tech that lets humans and mons understand each other better."
Eventually a small yet radiant light with a turquoise hue could be seen in the distance. Closer inspection revealed it to be the exit, covered by the same kind of bizarre material that comprised the air barrier from the mission start.
Alduin-B: -sighs- <That's me.>
-Two strange men are here-
-They may be noticed-
"That was a right weird wedding," Some girl muttered to herself, being met with a gaze from her Talonflame hovering beside her.
"Sure, it was the only one I've seen, but if any others I may have gone to would have involved the bride and groom transforming..." she trailed off before looking up.
"Who are they?" She asked herself, trying to be sneaky despite the non-native Pokemon peeking with her.
Elizabeth: "What about 'Get Well Soon'? Passive-aggressive"
-A voice in her subconcious whispers in approval.-
Oberon: <I hast drafted a scathing soliquoy of insults->
Kaylan: <Wait, so the original Alduin was named after you? That can’t be right...>
Channah: This place is massive.
Korexis: -sniffs some weird-looking grass, bites it, then spits it out-
Channah: Where to first?
-Kamon is reading his phone while Rockstar examines an issue of the Galarian Journal of Psychology-
Kamon: Yep, I was right. That's the de facto leader of the J-Team we met.
Rockstar: <Heh. "The rich are different: Unraveling the perceived and self-reported personality profiles of high net-worth individuals". Mebbe we could find ye in this article, Kam. Taken any surveys lately?>
Kamon: He seems quite different from the TV show, but that's to be expected. Y'see, now I'm rethinking this whole J-Team TV Show Movie deal. It was one thing to be asked to be in it, but if I can actually get to know these people...
-a young woman passes by, then stops and stares at Kamon with wide eyes-
Kamon: -looks up with a confused face, but then quickly flashes a grin- Hello, dear.
Girl 1: -gasps and shakes her friend- Ohhh, Margie. Margie! It's him! It's Drago!
Girl 2: What are you on about?
Girl 1: Drago Malfeus!
Girl 2: 0_o ...What the fuck. -also gasps as his smile widens in a guilty-as-charged way- YOU! Y-you were my favorite in Henry Parker! -giggles- Oh god, am I dreaming?
Girl 1: She was nuts about Drago's hair when she was 14! She has your wand!
Girl 2: Allie!
Kamon: That's to be expected. A lot of people like my wand.
Girl 2: Is it - Is it rude to ask for an autograph right here? You probably get asked all the time...
Kamon: Nah, it's perfectly alright. I'll sign aaanything you want, sweetheart. Rockstar, where's my pen?
Rockstar: <Thur goes they peace n quiet...>
Hold lemme... Hm... "To the greedy Doctor Robinson of Team Mobius. The worlds weep with what you have done and that torn-asunder sky shall herald the end of your twisted desire. We, the Phantom Thieves, will descend upon your Heart and take it from you. If you doubt us, need only look to those we have changed before."
Susan: Wow, you just... Did that off the top of your head?
It's a talent.
Perfectly Generic Dude Walking In: It's creepy is what it is, do you just have a card written up for everyone you meet?
I told you earlier, you are not coming along.
Perfectly Generic Dude Melting Into A Pink Goo Blob: Why not eh?>
Because you don't have a Persona!
Shift: <Yes I do!>
Shift: <We're not in the Metaverse yet, I can't.>
Paula: "Aw, come on, I liked the 'here's to you, Mrs. Robinson' joke. Think you could figure out a smooth way to implement it into that whole dramatic thing? It'll be funny."
Rose: "I guess if anyone's gonna manage to deliver it to her, it'll have to be Paula, right?"
Paula: "Oh, yeah. I've got this, no problem."
Julius: -to Paula-
Storm: Excuse me, ma'a-
Seigbert: Hello my fair lady! Aren't you looking stunning tonight?
-Storm nudges him-
Storm: Have you seen a J-Team?
"Not for a few days," Gail admitted. "I'm pretty sure they were the ones hosting that wedding you may have heard about," she offered. "I could take you there," she offered, a couple of Pokeballs in her hand, ignoring the frightened look from Jamie.
-Cady and Kat are sitting around a large tree stump with the Mogrem, the two Indeedee and a galarian Ponyta. Elizabeth the Shiinotic arrives at the table a minute later.-
Alfred the Mogrem: <Okay. Now we're all here webcan begin. Allow us to introduce ourselves. I'm Alfred, and this is Elizabeth, Anne, William and Victoria.>
Anne the Indeedee: <Together we call ourselves the Glimwood council.>
William the Indeedee: <It's nothing official, but we do our best to help the local people and pokemon.>
Victoria the Ponyta: <They, like, come to us with their disputes and stuff and we sort them out!>
Elizabeth: <Unfortunately, for the past few months we keep being bothered by a particular family of Morelull and Shiinotic.>
Alfred: <Their eldest Morelull is growing tired of our forest, and lashes out at people out of boredom.>
Anne: <Unfortunately, to his moron of a mother he could do no wron and it's clearly the other person's fault.>
William: <We cannot just turn them away due to our strict code of honour.>
Victoria: <Which, like, may or may not be written on some fey contract or other and stuff.>
Elizabeth: <I still think we should devour their souls, but no one else agrees with me.>
Kat: I just can't see why that would be the case...
Alfred: <So, do either of you have any ideas?>
Cady: You said the Morelull wanted to leave the woods and see the world?
Cady: Maybe their mother would let them come with me? I'm planning on challenging the Galar gym challenge soon.
Alfred: <Are you qualified as a trainer?>
-Cady pulls her Hoenn trainer card from her pocket.-
Cady: I beat the Hoenn league champion last year. I'm also pretty decent with fairy types if I do say so myself.
Alfred: <It seems like you would be able to take on the challenge. Now we just have to hope hin and his mother will agree... Elizabeth, please fetch them.>
-Violet steps out of a flying taxi.-
