Dio: <I mean, those would be the obvious choices...>
Corphish: (shakes his head) <No, that is unright.>
Kim: "It's Fennekin, isn't it?"
Corphish: (claps claws together) <It is! Plusgood, comrade!>
-Ian and Evelyn facefault-
Me: -muffled by dirt- Then what are Vulpix and Ninetales?
Corphish: <Firesixtailfoxpoke and fireninetailfoxpoke.>
-Ian and Evelyn facefault again.-
Evelyn: -muffled by dirt- Can Newspeak be any LESS obvious?
Kim: (smirks) "No. It can't." (then, to the Corphish) "Next one."
Kim: (thinking; to herself) Way too easy.
-Ian and Evelyn pick themselves up.-
-Ian and Evelyn burst out laughing.-

Kim: "Yep, pretty sure it is." (to the Corphish) "Is it Hydreigon?"
Corphish: (claps his claws) <Yes!>
Kim: "As I thought. Next one."
Kim: (thinks to herself) I know what this is... I know what this is...!
Evelyn: It's a Psychic type, I know this!
Me: Is it...
-Ian checks his Pok馘ex and then shows it to Evelyn and the Corphish-
Pok馘ex: Sigilyph, the Avianoid Pok駑on. A Psychic and Flying type. They never vary the route they fly, because their memories of guarding an ancient city remain steadfast.
Kim: (to the Corphish) "Is it Sigilyph?"
Corphish: <It is!>
Kim: (smiles) "Figured. A Psychic-Flying Pokemon based on the Nazca lines; there's only one. Alright, what's next?"
Kim: (thinks to herself) "Freezewater..." interchangibility strikes again...
Me: Loch? That means "Lake", doesn't it?
Evelyn: Indeed it does...
Me: Sounds like it could be Lapras.
Kim: "Is it Lapras?"
Kim: "As I thought. Next one, please."
Kim: (thinking) Dart...? Oh, I see, you're trying to stump me...
Rose: ...Right. Thank you. But, it still needs to be said.
-She turns to Paula-
Rose: In fact, I think it'd be best if you said it. Y'know, since you remember everything.
Paula: ...Alright, sure, whatever.
-She takes a seat, leaning back.-
Paula: So, six years ago or so, I was inducted into Cipher. I won't try to gain sympathy with a tragic backstory, the point is, I joined them because they offered me a power high that seventeen-year-old me absolutely ate up. While I was with them, I did pretty awful things, namely putting one of your fellow J-Teamers through the Shadow process, and then after y'all saved her, I decided to be greedy for more power, and caught the Heatran that lived up in Mt. Battle. Turns out, blocking a volcano deity's emotional core through horrible trauma makes the volcano it's connected to go off its rocker, going back and forth between actively erupting, and totally cold.
-She leans forward.-
Paula: Did you know, Phenac City very heavily relies on geothermal energy? It's supposed to be a power source that doesn't go out, after all. And I made it go out. Over and over and over again. And it was fun, watching that chaos unfold. It was fun, knowing I had such a powerful influence over an entire city, all on my own.
-And she leans back in her chair again, crossing one leg over the other, resting her head back on intertwined hands.-
Paula: That's where this Palace comes from. Me being greedy for power, for influence, for status, among a bunch of weird spooky sinister folks you'd typically expect out of a region-ruling criminal organization. And the Palace still exists. And I'm taking it back. That's what bugs Rose so much.
-She looks at Rose, and grins. Rose is, at this point, shaking.-
Paula: Doesn't it bug you all? That I'm who you're teaming up with? You've all been so trusting, all because it's Rose's big moment. But it's mine too. Aren't you gonna question why you're working with me?
-She watches everyone, awaiting their reaction.-
Evelyn: So far, there are only three known Pok駑on with the Water/Fighting type combination...
Me: Yeah... And one of them is Poliwrath.
Evelyn: IS it Poliwrath?
Corpish: (shakes head) <No.>
Kim: "I figured. It's Keldeo."
Corphish: (claps claws) <It is!>
Silas gave Paula a look, and in a calm tone low enough that it probably should've dropped the temperature of the room by a few degrees, "I am fighting for Rose's sake, she is one of my coworkers and one of my people. I trust you as much as I trust anyone, well a little less. If I find you have backstabbed us in any way I will be coming for you, that is your only warning, you will get none else."
He looked straight into her eyes, "Robinson is a problem that needs being removed, do not make yourself a problem in this equation."

-Ian and Evelyn facefault once more. To think the most obvious of Water/Fighting Pok駑on wasn't the answer they were looking for...-
Me: -muffled by dirt- Then what is Poliwrath called?
Evelyn: -muffled by dirt- And why Keldeo?
Kim: "And the 'dart' in the name is short for [D'Artangnan], the member of the [Three Musketeers] Keldeo is based on. Next."
Julius: Understood but... I've seen worse. I've been worse.
Alduin: <Nice to meet you! You want more marshmallows?>
Storm: -eyetwitch- You mean we missed them?
Seigbert: Damn it! Where did they go?
Woman: <Food... good.>
-she eagerly sits down-
-The fighting-types gather around her-
Kaylan: <Yes, PLEASE!>
Evelyn: Sounds like it could be a Legendary Pok駑on.
Me: Not any of the ones I've met...
Evelyn: Huh? Which ones did you meet?
Me: Well... I met with Mew, Necrozma, Diancie, Solgaleo, Lunala, Zeraora, Meloetta, Giratina...
Evelyn: I'm no artist, but is it...
-Evelyn uses her telekinesis to pick up a nearby stick and draws on the ground what she thinks the Pok駑on looks like... which is a dragon with a diamond in its chest and crystal spikes coming out of its head.-
Evelyn: this Pok駑on?

Before Gail could answer the question...
"Put a stinkin' leash on your Swellow, I've still got a headache," a voice groaned from the shadows. Someone in a gray jacket stepped out, his right hand in its pocket.
"Yeah, I'm J-Team," he said. "Whatcha Swellow want?"
"...Jamie?" Gail asked, to which the bird shrugged.
Kim: "Is it Dialga?"
Corphish: (happily) <You are plusgood at this!>
Evelyn: Is it Eevee?
Me: Huh? Eevee?
Evelyn: The word "evo" is in the name, as in "evolution."
Me: Of course! And Eevee is the Evolution Pok駑on.
Kim: "Is it Eevee?"
Kim: "And now you know the prefix 'prole-' means Normal-type Pokemon. Next one."
Me: Okay... so luv as in "love" as in Fairy type?
Evelyn: Seems that way...
Me: Is it Jigglypuff?
