Kim: "Is it Jigglypuff?"
Corphish: <It is!>
Kim: "Alright." (she looks up, only to find that it is now dark) "It's getting a bit late, and there's still something I want to do that I haven't done yet. Should we play one more round?"
Corphish: <One more? Doubleplusgood!>
Kim: "Okay, then. Last one."
Kim: (thinking to self) Just wait until they see what I've got planned... also one more word would have made the whole thing too obvious.
Elizabeth: "Lesser of two evils. The enemy of my enemy is my ally. You're sexy and I'm imagining the same thing Corrin does with the Robins."
Christina: <Also...you're Rose's shadow, technically. You're part of her.>
You already know mine, we basically had this conversation already more than a year ago.
You're sure there's nothing wrong?
-With the wild child settled down with all her Fighting friends, Gale goes back to checking on the curry and soon enough it was ready-
Alrighty, let's see how this turned out.
-The curry is... Basic. That isn't to say it's bad, just that Gale used just the basic curry supplies she got from the Trainer section at the Mart so it lacks both an interesting main ingredient and also doesn't contain and flavoring berries. It's just a well-made, simple curry-
I am well aware of what you are and what you have done.
-He nods and goes back to writing, eventually getting a small device from his bag and plugging a wire into his phone-
-It kinda looks like a Gameboy Printer except modern-
-Corrin chokes on the coffee she's definitely had this whole time.-
Corrin: -cough cough cough- E l i z a b e t h ? ? ?
-Paula's smirk slowly widens, and she gestures lazily at Silas.-
Paula: This guy gets it. I like him. Keep me in check, guys, you never know what I'm gonna do. Anyway, just lemme know when you've got that calling card, and I'll get it to the good doctor ASAP, 'kay?
-Rose clenches her fists, then sighs and lets them go slack.-
Rose: ...If this is happening, if you're going back in my head, there's a few loose ends I need to tie up first. Before the point of no return.
Paula: Oh, sure, sure, whatever you gotta do. Just remember that you can't run away from it. Seriously, that's the name you chose? Runaway?
Rose: I won't. I'm not backing out of anything. I just... need to talk to some people.
BB: Look out! Move!
-The Alolan sandslash manages to dart out of the way of most of the flare blitz, but is hit hard with the earth power.-
YB: Ah, Hoenn. What a pleasant place.
BB: ~Slate can probably only last a few more turns at most, but we can probably still do something.~ You thinking what I'm thinking?
YB: Course I am, I can hear your thoughts. Sandslash, gyro ball!
BB: Sandslash, metal burst!
-The Sandslash rolls into a ball and rolls quickly at the Solrock, whilst the Alolan Sandslash releases shards of metal, powered up by the previous attack, also at the Solrock.-
"I don't know you, so I didn't exactly trust you to begin with, but I trust Rose enough and it seems like it's just.. easier this way." Daydre shrugs.
".. Oh right I needed to pick out a codename didn't I"
Daydre takes the drink and gives it a tentative sip.
Matthew: I'm serious, though! Mega Stones, Z-Crystals, Synergy Stones, you know what it all comes back to? Rocks! It's proof that Rock is the absolute best type!
Lily: If you say one more thing about rocks I am going to Rock Smash your face.
-Kyle adjusts his glasses-
Kyle: Well technically, he does have a point. I wouldn't be surprised if this 'Dynamax' phenomenon was also related to stones.
Matthew: See, see? You get it! That's why we should be going to the mines right now.
Jenna: We're not going to the mines, we're just going to look around this area. Now go to sleep.
Matthew: But don't you want one of the new things?
Jenna: I just watched my daughter from the future fight a god. I want my life to be normal again.
-somewhere far away from the Crescendos' camp, another set of siblings is looking things over-
Forte: Why is there a giant bird perched on our ship?
Fortis: Oh my gosh the big birdie came back!
Dynamax Rookidee♀: -chirp-
-Fortis runs toward the ship, and is immediately grabbed by Mezzo-
Mezzo: We are not getting closer to that until we know what it is.
Fortis: I know what it is, it's a pretty birdie!
Rookidee♀: <This is a good nest.> -chirp-
Pianis: I'm with Piano on this one. I see some kind of strange energy coming off that thing.
Forte: So... how do we get it off the ship?
-Apollo and Artemis spin, almost as fast as the Sandslash. With the combined energy of their Psychics, they stop the metal in mid-air.-
Apollo: ~In space, one must have a strategy to avoid being hit by space junk. It can pick up enough speed to cut through a space station like butter, you know.~
Artemis: ~But unlike space stations, which use alloys of very light metals, Steel is very heavy. Once Steel starts to move, it's hard to stop it.~
-Apollo stops Levitating, dropping out of the path of the attack. Artemis places the shards of metal, arranged like a spear, in the path of the Gyro Spin.-
Apollo & Artemis: ~IN SPACE, NOONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM.~
-Meanwhile, Ivan takes this opportunity to reach out to the Chimecho's Aura and urges it to wake up, pouring a Heal Pulse into it.-

-Pent nods and taps his phone a little and the printer-like device... Is actually a printer yes, because it prints out a business card sized piece of cardboard printed on one side with a logo amid discordant red and black. With quick fingers he grabs the card and checks the side opposite to the logo without showing anyone-
Nope, that came out wrong, let's try that again.
-He gives a goofly little chuckle and puts the in-some-way-wrong Calling Card away in his jacket pocket before tapping at his phone some more and printing off another Card that he checks and puts out on some table or something that presumably everyone is standing around or near-
Alright there's the card. Anyone got any other business before we actually get rolling? Oh! Right remember I wanna have a talk after this meeting, Runaway.
- DS tries to help Linnéa and Ray get Linnéa's camera back from the Nickit that stole it -
- While the group chases after it, a wild Yamper joins in the chase -
Wild Yamper: <I wanna play too!>
- The group eventually manages to corner the Nickit -
Wild Nickit: <...!>
Ray: All right, now we've got to get the camera back...
DS: I have an idea. Just give me a moment...
- DS pulls out her laptop and quickly retrieves a certain Pokémon from storage -
Wild Yamper: (barks at the Nickit)
Wild Nickit: (growls at the Yamper, still holding the camera)
Ray: (to DS) Did you get what you needed?
DS: (holding a certain Pokémon's pokeball) Yep.
- Before the Pokémon has even been sent out, the Nickit notices the camera it was holding a moemnt ago is missing -
Wild Nickit: <Huh? What?>
Swindle: (pulling the camera out from Hammerspace as soon as she's sent out) <Ha! You've got a lot to learn, little fox!>
Wild Nickit: <How did you even...?>
- While the Nickit is distracted, DS takes the oppurtunity to throw a pokeball at it -
- Once the pokeball stops shaking, the Yamper runs over and grabs it, bringing it back to DS -
Wild Yamper: <That was fun! What should we play next?>
- DS returns the camera to Linnéa -
DS: Here you go!
Linnéa: Thanks for the help!
DS: So... (looks at the Yamper) Do you want this one, or should I catch him?
Linnéa: Oh! Um...
Wild Yamper: (looks up at the Pokémon trainers expectantly)
Linnéa's Sobble: <... I'm not that good against electric types, but if you want...>
Linnéa: ...! (nods) Okay! Let's give it a try!
Me: Fight... kirb?
Evelyn: Sounds that way...
Me: Well... whatever Pokémon it is, it looks like Kirby...
...whatever Kirby looks like...
-Ian has an Imagine Spot of what a "Kirby" might look like... first imagining a pink puffball with red feet and a big appetite... then imagining a chibi girl with light blue hair, black clothes and a big appetite... Then shakes his head because he does not know.-
Evleyn: Hey... I think I might have seen a Pokémon like this...
-Evelyn checks her Pokédex.-
Evelyn's Pokédex: Falinks, the Formation Pokémon. A Fighting type. The six of them work together as one Pokémon. Teamwork is also their battle strategy, and they constantly change their formation as they fight. Five of them are troopers, and one is the brass. The brass's orders are absolute.
Evelyn: Is it Falinks?

-Kyle looks around, then pauses-
Lily: What is it?
Kyle: ...This place has the ugliest trees I've ever seen.
Lily: Oh my dear Arceus you're right. Those things are hideous.
Kyle: Hey Jen, can we—
Kyle: I didn't even finish!
Jenna: We are not starting a forest fire just because of some weird trees.
Kyle: But look at them!
Lily: I'm with Kyle. We should burn the place down.
Fortis: I'm the birthday girl so you have to do what I say, and I say I wanna catch that birdie!
Mezzo: Fortis we are not— Ow!
-Mezzo recoils as Fortis hits her with an umbrella-
-Mezzo presents Fortis with a blue umbrella-
Fortis: Oh my gosh!
Mezzo: Happy birthday. I figured you could use one of these. If anyone tries to creep on you because you're 'legal' now, give them a good smack for me. And I guess you can use it to keep dry too.
Fortis: Thank you Piano!
Mezzo: I didn't give you that so you could hit me with it!
-Fortis is already running straight toward the Rookidee and ignoring anything else-
Pianis: So, are we going to help her?
Mezzo: I guess we have to.
-however visibly Daydre drops the line of inquiry, Pippy lets out a little sigh of relief, slight untensing approximately equally not-visible-
-Vee, on the contrary, just keeps chewing on her pie and her thoughts-
Vee: -chew chew chew-
Megan: -dazed, contemplative- Yeah, I didn't expect...yeah-
-ordinarily, there'd be this whole fuss, internally, about implict versus explict meaning, accidents of habit and the establishment of boundaries thereof, what do-
Vee: -chew chew- <...>
-but due to prompt clarification, Megan's internal monologue is rapidly pared down to a much smaller set of essentials-
Megan: -internally- she wants to hold my hand
-differently dazed, externally- Oh no no this is nice!
I'm good for however…! c:
-you can just see Pippy's internal fistpump-
Really good. Uh.
-involuntarily smiling, brushing some hair behind her ear- Wanna order anything else? It's on me
Megan: -looking down at her everything- Oh my gosh
Pippy: -clattering up- <aaaaaaa don't stretch your collar>
Megan: -taking off her shoes- I wanna see!
Oh how does this work...
Pippy: -sweatdrop- <It's magic!!>
Megan: Yes but what kind
Vee: -mrgh- <Fairy magic.>
Pippy: <Uh, he said alchemy...?>
Megan: -endlessly curious, wiggling her toes- Does metal stop it?
-outstretch- C'mon, c'mon, hold my hand!
-he taps his wingtips together-
-tink tink tink-
-and experimentally, curious despite himself, Pippy places his claws in her fingers-
-more soft Eevee pets-
Logan: -humming gently, to Merlin- So, what's your take on all this?
-they gesture, feyly, to the small, dangerous fox in their lap-
-the nimbus of light around them shifts a few shades to "ethereal", and courtly constellations trace themselves in the air-
-they wink, and it's warm like spring-
Addie: -having drunk the same drink, pops up onto the bar next to Logan, softly singing something strange-
Vee: -eyes her, until Addie gives a perfectly normal wink, and she relaxes-
-two clad in Blue and Yellow are here-
(-...one apiece, they don't have matching outfits-)
Megan: We should get matching outfits.
-they did get cleaned up at the Pokemon Center after the bout, which was a bit hard to explain-
Logan: -whistles, giving her a weird look- It's a good thing people-fights and messy Pokemon-fights end up looking pretty indistinguishable.
Megan: -shiver- That Ineedee gave me the stink-eye.
Logan: They're called Indeedee.
Megan: ...are you sure?
Logan: -headtilt- Don't you have that Pokedex? I'm pretty sure it comes with a pronunciation guide, not just cries...
Megan: -defensive- ...the regional package isn't done downloading.
-they walk past a Berry stand, where a green-haired customer seems to be haranguing the hapless shopkeep-
Logan: ...did you start downloading—
Megan: Yes! I think!
Logan: -blank stare- …
Megan: -ininscrutable- …
-a red-jacketed man walks in the other direction, eating Cheri Berries from a paper tin-
Megan: okay no
Logan: -pats her arm-
-and they make their way down the road toward Sonia's Laboratory, speaking no more of stuff forgotten-
Logan: wait :D
-and they spin a hundred and eighty degrees and pull Megan back the way they came-

Channah: Yeah, I feel fine. I think. Maybe I just spaced out for a bit.
Kim: “Is it Falinks?”
Corphish: (claps claws together) <It is~! Doubleplusgood!>
Kim: “Alright, then.” (she smirks) “That’ll be enough for tonight. It’s getting dark out and I’m almost ready to go to sleep.”
Sinatra: <Yeah, I’m getting pretty tired, too.>
Geddy: <Should I sing Rivendell again?>
(All of Kim’s Pokemon laugh, except for the Corphish who looks on in confusion.)
Kaylan: <It’s a song by [Rush].>
Elton: (stunned) <YOU DON’T KNOW WHO [RUSH] ARE?!>
Elton: <Are you serious?! You seriously have no idea who [Rush] are?!>
Kaylan: <They’re only the greatest band of all time!>
Corphish: <Are you sure...?>
Paul: <He does have a point. What you think is the greatest band of all time may not be what he thinks is the greatest band of all time. You know, it’s subjective.>
Elton: <Well... that is true...>
Dio: <Enough about [Rush], guys— I am pooped!>
Dio: <What? I’m just saying I’m tired.>
Freddie: (sighs with relief) <Phew...>
Kim: “Yeah, I’m getting tired, too. Let’s sleep out here for the night.”
Corphish: <Y-you’re bedding out here? What about me?>
Kim: “Don’t worry, Corphish. You can come, too.”
Corphish: <Plusgood! Thank you, comrade!>
(The Pokémon get ready to go inside the tent. Meanwhile, Kim taps Ian on the shoulder, smirking.)
Kim: “I have a plan.”
Me: Oh? What's the plan, Kim?
Kim: “Simple. I’m going to surprise Dio...” (she reaches into her bag and pulls out the Razor Fang) “...with this.”
Me: -surprised- The Razor Fang? But... Are you sure you want to do that?
Kim: “I’m very sure. I’m going to sneak this into the tent while Dio is sleeping, and when he wakes up, he’s going to be a Gliscor. He’s going to be ecstatic.”
Me: Though I strive to be optimistic no matter where I go... I can see a few possibilities of how this can go wrong...
Kim: “...what do you mean?”
Me: For instance... how sharp are a Gligar's claws?
Kim: “...about as sharp as a Gliscor’s, why do you ask?”
-Fortis throws a Pokeball at the Rookidee-
-which bounces off harmlessly, but catches her attention-
Rookidee: <Hey! This is my nest! Back off!>
-she flaps her wings, and blows a stream of air toward Fortis-
Pianis: Well, looks like we're fighting this thing now.
Icecap: <Something you need, darl— oh dear.>
Pianis: You could say that, yeah.
Felis: <What the hell. Why.>
Mezzo: Don't panic. It's a bird, you're a cat.
Icicle: <Hey! That's my ship!>
Rookidee: <No way! I found it first!>
Aeropolis: <Whoa! That's big!>
Fortis: Uh huh, but I'm still gonna catch it!
-the Rookidee flaps her wings, then throws a burst of air toward Icicle-
Icicle: <You get off there right now before I— Eep!>
-Icicle is sent flying away and crashes on the ground-
Forte: Holy crap!
Mezzo: Okay, we are ending this right now.
-Mezzo taps her Z-ring and poses, but nothing happens-
Mezzo: Wait, what?
Pianis: Told you there was something strange going on. Icecap, Blizzard this thing.
Icecap: <Right away, darling.>
Forte: Hey Icicle, same thing.
-a pair of ice storms blast the Rookidee, but she stays standing-
Forte: What? That hardly did anything at all!
Pianis: I'm starting to think this may have been a mistake.
