-Nemean Lion is sent staggering from the Sludge Wave-
-It doesn't look good-
Royal: Damn it...
Alex: Let me guess we've unleashed her ancient evil Spiritomb power and need to throw her in a volcano.
Forte: This thing on?
Forte: Hey people, welcome to my first ever stream of Pokémon training. It's Galar Gym Challenger #133, the Eevee Master.
Forte: No, I really am an Eevee Master. I have a certificate and everything.
-Forte holds up a certificate to the camera; it's signed by Kagetora and marks the bearer as a true Eevee Master-
Forte: Told you so.
Forte: Anyway, since I think this question is gonna come up a lot... no, I don't really do the catching wild Pokémon thing. This is my team, they're all one big family, and I wouldn't want to just chuck Pokeballs at every wild Eevee I see. I know, I know, I like wild Eevees and all, but if you're going for something like the Gym Challenge, focusing on one team is important, okay?
Forte: Anyway, let me introduce everyone. Hey guys, come over here and show off for the camera!
-the nine Eevees gather around the camera, and Forte turns to each one in sequence-
Forte: Icicle's the team dad, and grandpa to Blueberry and Celeste. He's my oldest one that my brother brought back from Sinnoh.
Icicle: <Hi viewers! Do you like snow?>
Forte: Shadow's the big brother. He kind of runs everything behind the scenes... well, when he's not playing chess or Stellarcreation or that card game, anyway.
Shadow: <Greetings. This should be a good educational opportunity.>
Forte: Fireball is kind of brash. He likes running into things and blowing them up.
Fireball: <Explosions are cool, okay?>
Forte: Leaflet's the shy one. Sometimes he's kind of uncomfortable because he likes sun and Icicle likes snow, but we all love him here, don't we? -pets Leaflet-
Leaflet: <Yeah, I guess.>
Forte: Marine is kind of chill and relaxed about everything. He likes sleeping and swimming.
Marine: <Hey people.>
Forte: And Electro is... wait, where is she?
Electro: <Look out below! I'm— oof!>
-Electro dashes toward Forte, crashing right into the camera-
Forte: There she is. Yeah, she's kind of hyper, like Fireball.
Forte: Stella doesn't do battling, but she's really good at non-combat stuff. And she's great at being cute on demand.
Stella: <Of course I am!> -poses cutely-
Forte: There's two other Umbreons that are technically mine, but I don't know where they are right now. If I see them I'll be sure to give them a spotlight too.
Forte: Celeste is Stella's daughter, and a magical girl.
Celeste: <Trans rights!>
Forte: And she supports trans rights, of course.
Forte: And Blueberry's the newest family member. She really likes music.
Blueberry: <Hi people! You gonna give me any good tunes?>
Forte: She's kind of special, and we haven't really figured out her true potential yet, so be sure to tune in.
Forte: What? No, she's not a mary sue. Why would you even say that?
Forte: Anyway, that's the team. I look forward to showing you guys what they can do.
Revy: So, I'll ask it again, what now?
Ever: Well, uh, you can clean up all this.
-they gesture expansively at everything-
Brie, give me my arm back.
-she hands it over. Ever reattaches it, and gestures even more expansively at the rest of everything-
Revy: Wh— how is that fair?
-quadruple Memito stare-
Revy: ...Okay, yeah, I'll get right on it. Where'd you leave Baccarat?
-Ever points, and Revy trudges off, Zaphkiel slithering after-
Brie: Is it wrong I sort of feel bad for her?
Ever: Eh. She'll probably reach out at some point.
Amanita: Anyway, we should probably get over to a hospital. Can't believe you were right about the Memito thing.
Ever: Oh, yeah, and Pef, you should reset Amanita.
Amanita: Wait, what?
Ever: I mean, you're pretty definitely dying.
Amanita: No I'm not—
PEFE!Every: Yeah, you are.
PEFE!Every: Relax. I can fix it.
Brie: So after that, then what?
Ever: ...Well, I hear everyone's going to Galar?
-Mezzo and Fortis are sipping tea at a table, Invincible perched on Fortis' head-
Mezzo: So what are you gonna do now?
Fortis: I dunno!
Mezzo: I've been trying to look up this dark gym, but all that comes up is some group called Team Yell. What does that mean?
Fortis: Maybe you should try yelling at stuff!
Mezzo: Of course you would suggest that.
-a particular green-haired girl walks in, and notices Mezzo immediately-
Noelle: Oh! Just who I wanted to see!
Mezzo: -sigh- What are you doing here?
Noelle: I'm here to—
Mezzo: Actually, let me say this. If you're here to confess to Fortis because she's 18 now, you can just leave.
Fortis: Huh? Confess what?
-Noelle blushes a bit-
Noelle: No, that's not... wait, I missed your birthday? Aww, I'm sorry.
Fortis: It's okay! I know you still love me!
Noelle: Yes I... um. Uh.
Fortis: Because everyone loves me, silly!
Noelle: Oh... oh. Of course, yeah.
-Noelle shakes her head-
Noelle: Anyway, I'm actually here for you, Mezzy.
Mezzo: Don't call me that.
Noelle: I need some advice on sweets.
Mezzo: I'm listening...
-Noelle holds out a Love Sweet and a Clover Sweet-
Noelle: Now obviously I want mint cream but I can't decide what to put on top of it.
Mezzo: Uh, both?
Noelle: I don't think that would work.
Mezzo: I'm confused. What exactly are you making with mint cream?
Noelle: Oh, it's not for me, it's for her!
-Noelle holds out a Milcery-
Fortis: Oh my gosh fairy blob!
Noelle: See, you evolve her by whipping her. I know the recipe for mint cream, but which sweet do I use as a topping? I wish there was a mint leaf one, but I couldn't find it...
-Mezzo tilts her head-
<Is she referring to the Vampire Noble?> Hayden asked.
"Has to be. Victor's alive, got himself turned into a vampire, built a castle and then fucked off to do science things with it, apparently he's really bored now and very egotistical, but he seems to share a hatred for the Macrauls so it's not all bad," Arthur explained.
<I'd comment about it being a bad idea to associate with vampires, but in present company that seems hypocritical,> Ranger admitted.
Arthur sighed, "So, should we let him into the club?"
Knight caught the hook from the crabhammer, and looked right at Changeling, "Oh how cute! It wants to play!"
Silas adjusted his outfit and gloves, "Robinson, today just isn't your day is it?"
"Well I have a solution to some of our problems here. I'LL BEAT A MOTHERFUCKER WITH ANOTHER MOTHERFUCKER! MEDIAEVAL FLAIL STYLE!" Knight shouted before pulling on the chain, tossing Changeling up and beginning to smack the Shadow Robinson with Changeling on the end.
Silas chuckled a bit, "So this is what I've been suppressing then?"

Olivia: -grins- Sure, he could use it.
Well, strictly speaking this was for Ever, but she can't be too much stronger compared to their mons...
-as Carna bursts in, PEFE!Every slaps a button on her desk, which appears to be a repurposed Easy Button-
-and dozens of energy wires shoot across the room, crisscrossing between Carna and PEFE!Every and Carna and the door-
PEFE!Every: Hey! Can we talk? Just for a bit?
Brie: Can you believe it took us a month to get to Galar?
Ever: Yeah. Easily. We travel with a stateless woman who cooks up bioweapons for fun; the fact that we're not all in prison right now is an actual miracle.
PEFE!Every: I can hear you.
Ever: I know. Fix everything about yourself.
PEFE!Every: I wanted to teleport.
Amanita: Okay, easy.
Ever: So what's all our plans while we're here?
Brie: Vacation. Normal sleep schedules, how I've missed you...
Ever: You're taking the Gym Challenge.
PEFE!Every: What? I'm not a Trainer.
Ever: I think you lose the luxury of that when it nearly gets us all killed, sorry.
PEFE!Every: It doesn't even work the same way here. You need a sponsorship—
Ever: Oh no! It's too bad you don't work for an organization that has literally global reach, with a boss whom I could definitely talk into dropping you a sponsorship to help you be the best version of yourself!
PEFE!Every: Yes, I see your point—
Ever: I mean, gosh, if only a group with an actual artifact vault were willing to extend its trust in you as an ambassador!
PEFE!Every: ...Are you done?
Brie: What about you?
Ever: What about me?
Brie: I assume you're doing the challenge too? Who's your sponsor?
Ever: Anyway, I'm gonna go check out the lab. See if I vibe with any of the starters.
Brie: You haven't got enough Pokemon to start your challenge already?
Ever: They're literally all babies. I need someone to mind them.
-and they're gone-
Amanita: ...So, Poison/Fairy-type, huh?
Brie: There are no Pokemon in this region I can catch!
I thought the path was gonna be quick. Damned Woobat.
Anthracite the Rolycoly♂: -Rolls on-
I assume that's Turffield Stadium in the distance.
Doppler: <The first Gym challengers must face in the Galar region.>
Fortis: The pink one, because it's cute and looks like a heart!
Noelle: Hm... you know, pink and green is kind of my aesthetic because of my hair, isn't it?
Mezzo: I guess?
Fortis: Uh huh!
-Noelle hands the Love Sweet to her Milcery, who puts it on top of her-
Noelle: Okay, that's step one. Now, step two!
-Noelle makes a pose-
Noelle: You have to speeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee—
-and starts spinning counterclockwise rapidly, and the Milcery follows suit-
-and continues spinning as the Milcery starts to glow-
-she attempts to strike a pose again, then falls over-
-the Milcery, who is still spinning, slows down and takes on a new shape-
-she looks at herself-
Fortis: Oh my gosh she's so pretty!
Noelle: See, it worked!
-Noelle gets up, takes a dab of cream on her finger, and licks it-
Noelle: Minty deliciousness.
Fortis: Oh my gosh!
Mezzo: So did you literally just come here to show us that?
Noelle: No, I came to get help picking out a sweet. And I did! Now, what to name her?
Mezzo: She doesn't have a name?
Noelle: I wanted to name her after whatever flavor I made her. Hm... I guess she's kind of wintergreen? I think that's a good name.
Wintergreen: <I like it!>
Ever: —I dunno. I'm not really about the whole traditional starter thing.
Sonia: That's not a Piplup? Also, you really shouldn't be bringing Piplup into the League challenge—
Ever: That is my godson, ma'am.
-she gestures at the starters-
Are you sure? I haven't told you anything about them. And they do seem to like you.
Grookey: <I don't.>
Scorbunny: <Yeah, well, you're an inveterate sourpuss. Also, they've got lettuce in their pocket.>
Grookey: <I don't like lettuce.>
Scorbunny: <What part of "inveterate sourpuss" aren't you picking up on?>
Sobble: <...I could use some lettuce.>
-the Scorbunny and Sobble make some abortive attempts to scale Ever's legs-
Ever: Aww. Cute. (to Sonia) How much do I need to know, though, really? They'll like other people.
Grookey: <I won't.>
Scorbunny: <I will!> (to Sobble) <They're right. My affections are liberally applied.>
Sobble: <I'm aware.>
Sonia: Well, Grookey grows up into Rillaboom. It's a laid-back gorilla mon with a taste for percussion— honestly, though, you and Grookey do not seem to be bonding.
Ever: This shows sense on Grookey's part.
Grookey: <You see.>
Sobble: <I'm unconvinced.>
Scorbunny: <Generic peppy line!>
Scorbunny: <Hey, we all get to phone it in sometimes. Not like they understand us.>
Sonia: Sobble grows up into Inteleon. It's a fast special attacker, with an arsenal of wea—
Ever: Fast, you say?
Sonia: Yeah. Though if you're hoping to round out your team with someone speedy, Scorbunny's also pretty quick—
Scorbunny: <Wanna see me run around the lab?>
Ever: -petting Scorbunny- Sort of. Would you mind terribly if I made a quick phone call?
Sonia: ...A little!
Ever: I won't be a minute.
-All answers his phone-
Ever: I have caller ID disabled. Is that just your normal response?
All: It's 2019—
Ever: Is it?
All: —damn it, it's 2020, just text!
Ever: Well, you know how I love a good text, but I need faster responses. You're headed to Galar, aren't you?
All: Yeah? I'm just getting on the pla—
Ever: Good catching up! Take care, love you cuz!
-Ever bends down-
Grookey: <Oh, look, they bend down to be on our level. Am I supposed to be impressed?>
Sobble: <From a practical perspective, it's nice not to be straining our necks.>
Ever: Hey, Sobble.
Scorbunny: <Aw, what?>
Sobble: -extending a small claw- <Pleasure.>
Grookey: <What are you doing?>
Sobble: <Humans like it when you pretend to anthromorphize yourself.>
-Ever giggles, and shakes the Sobble's hand-
Ever: What's your stance on spite?
Sobble: <The move? I don't know it myself, but—>
Ever: The concept, I mean.
Sobble: <Oh. Heartily in favor.>
Sonia: What am I witnessning? Are you making a deal with a Pokemon?
Ever: It happens more frequently than you'd expect! Sobble, climb on?
-Sobble leaps into the air, landing on Ever's shoulder-
Arc: <Hey! That's my spot!>
Sobble: <Were you using it?>
Ever: (perfectly straight-faced) He seems like a sweetheart.
Me: You make a good point, Kim...
-Ian dusts himself off.-
Me: But now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go back to the Wild Area for a moment. There's someone I have to meet about an endorsement.
Evelyn: I'll go with you!
Me: Thanks, Evelyn. Anyways, Kim... I'll meet you back here once I get the letter.
Subject: Sponsorship Request
I am Scott McSweeney, representative in charge for endorsements at Kwan Industries. I would like to schedule a meeting with you at the soonest convenience. How would a meeting at our office at Motostoke sound?
Ms. Montalban was wearing a female version of a man's suit. It seemed very 80s and 90s.
Ms. Montalban: Funny, I could've sworn I recognized someone here.
Tommy: Same, ma'am. A lot of people do seem to be J-Teamers.
Jonathan and Tommy are the only ones who aren't overblown in their 90s dress sense. Jon is dressed in a flattering, well-tailored suit that seemed retro yet modern at the same time, while Tommy... almost always wears plaid shirts anyway so is dressed how he normally does. Plus an apron. It kind of makes him look like a busboy.
Jonathan: Me three. Didn't we meet at least some of these people in J-Con?
Tommy: Is that Mr. Descartes?
Jonathan: Descartes? I seem to be familiar with such a fellow. He's one of Priscilla's professional contacts.
Tommy: You found the [Reggie Mantle] to your [Archie Andrews]?
Jonathan: Zip it, Peter Parker.
'Might as well get to my first gym.' -She went towards Route 3-
"It's very rocky on this route, I should be careful." -She made her way to the entrance of Galar Mine- "Oh, nice an Escape Rope! I'll take it." Aspen obtained an Escape Rope! -She went into the Galar Mine-
'It's very pretty in here, all those glittering crystals around.' -She made her way through Galar Mine, training up her team in the process-
Me: Guess what, Evelyn? We don't have to go back to the Wild Area!
Evelyn: That's great!
Me: Someone named Scott Mc Sweeney wants to meet us in his office in Motostoke to discuss Kwan Industries' sponsorship of my Gym Challenge!
Evelyn: ...and I'll be there to cheer you on!
Me: Thanks, Evelyn! Now... Let's go!
-As Ian and Evelyn head off to the office building in Motostoke where they'll meet Scott Mc Sweeney, a wild Munna floats into town...-
Munna: <Those trainers have some big dreams, I just know it... All I wanna know is where they are going...>
-The Munna then floats in the two Trainers' direction...-
-Barty gapes at Alex-
Bartemaeus: <No??? She's just a really good source of negativity, and it's a very ghost-hospitable environment!>
Grit: <If she seals, we lose that. I'd like not to lose that.>
-They scurry down the hall in an attempt to find her.-
-Pride is clearly taking quite the beating from the assault, but refuses to let up despite the onset of exhaustion.-
-And then, the Snag Machine is revealed.-
-He abandons attention on everyone attacking him.-
Pride: <no you will NOT USE THAT MACHINE—>
-He lunges at it to attempt to destroy it before it can be used.-
-Carna does not seem intent to talk.-
-She does seem intent to make a large variety of angry lizard noises, ranging from hisses to screeches to snarls to Jurassic Park dinosaur sounds that may not be especially accurate to the vocalizations of real dinosaurs.-
-She also seems intent to attempt to claw her way through the energy wires without the foresight of what they might do to her.-
Dr. Robinson: ...Cho. You've... made yourself quite the reeppuuttaattiioonn, in Mobius.
Echo: And, evidently, you seem keen on imitating me.
Dr. Robinson: Your methods are... rreelliiaabbllee. And easily replicable. Why should I nnoott use what gets results?
Echo: Frankly, out of the many things I can be considered a role model for, that's probably the worst. But, nonetheless, I'm flattered.
-Several layers of Robinson chuckle.-
Dr. Robinson: We both knew Mobbiiuus was doomed to fail. We both had other priorriittiies. You should respect that.
Echo: Oh, I do. In fact, I'd like to help you.
Dr. Robinson: ...You're fucking with uuss.
Echo: Oh, no. I noticed how unhealthy you've become, and I'd like to help you onto the path to recovery.
-She turns a dial on her personal Aura jammer, increasing the range, and the 107 spirits clinging to Robinson all screech in pain simultaneously as they struggle to keep their grip on her soul, expanding in a cloud around her.-
-For the purposes of the fight, let's calculate Knight's attack as a use of Foul Play.-
-Let's calculate the damage, shall we?-
╓────────────────────────────────────╢ DOCTOR VALENTINA PLUTUS ROBINSON ╟────────────────────────────────────╖ ╠╡ HP ╞══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╣ ║████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████║ ╚════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╝
Shadow Robinson: Cease your incessant blabbering at once!
-The Dead Hands retreat from Mimic, instead turning to launch themselves at Knight's throat.-
-Changeling takes a moment to get reoriented after getting swung at Shadow Robinson, and looks at Knight somewhat dizzily.-
Maui!Changeling: <That was... not very knightlike of you!>
-He retreats slightly to shoot a Bubblebeam at him.-
-Rose manages to recover from her Shift-induced fit of nausea, and looks around.-
Rose: Ugh... fuck, someone needs to help Royal. Either— either heal him, or help him escape.
-She notices New Moon's Beast turning its attention toward the Nemean Lion.-
Rose: Uh, quickly!
-She sends Bluetongue to Dig up by the Beast to occupy its focus, and winces from another Thrash.-

A car is in the middle of wilderness. Dave is outside. A rotom floats by.
Lillifuture Jonathan: Well, this is awkward. PC might be able to tweak the shunter a bit and we can get to the nearest town before the stores close.
Dave: Sure, you do that.
He wasn't paying too much attention. He was staring at a picture he took at the Nacrene City Library back in his home timeline, of him and his Uncle Andy's kids making funny faces. Well, he and Junior were making funny faces and Stanford is on his desk, looking kinda nonplussed. He scrolled a bit and there was a photo of him and Stanford actually being friendly, taken later that day.
Dave wasn't as close to Stanford as he was with Junior. Stanford was oddly clammy and shy most of the time.
Lillifuture Jonathan: Still trying to figure out how to make Andy Junior's kid brother like you again?
Dave: I don't quite get it. It's like there's this wall he set up between us. He wasn't quite like this before. I mean, Tommy and I, we have our differences. Bring up politics and he'd start screaming like a triggered lib. And yet we're still friends.
Lillifuture Jonathan: He's a librarian. He probably thinks the Authority will turn his books into furnace fuel. Gee, whoever gave him that idea?
Dave: Don't go all sanctimonious on me, Halliburton.

-Cady is sitting in a tent with her pokemon.-
Cecelia: <What's wrong?>
Cady: I've got no-one to endorse me for the gym challenge!
Amadeus: <How disorganised of you. You should've really thought this one through.>
Cady: I'll need to go ask around again...
-Cady gets a text.-
From: a friend
Hey! Your friend Kat told me you were looking for someone to endorse you for the Galar league, is that true?
To: a friend
Yes, but who are you and why did Kat give you my number?
I'm an old acquaintance of Kat's who loves endorsing random people for fun! You should find I've already done the necessary steps online if you go and register!
-Cady is going through the registration process.-
Cady: They said they filled it out online.
Receptionist: Okay, let me check... Oh goodness, it's him again. Well, it's a valid endorsement. What'll your number be?
Cady: I'll go with.... 51.
Receptionist: Okay then.
-Cady and Kat are sitting at a cafe
Cady: So, who is the mystery endorser?
Kat: Just someone who owed me one.
Cady: But why?
Kat: I did some stuff for him, so he owed me a favour.
-Violet may be noticed sticking a missing poster for an oddly coloured Chimecho on a lamp post.-

Come on guys!
-Follows behind the Ghost-types-
-Still trying to make their way over to the battle spot-
Ariadne: <Is it me or does it seem like the Palace is going on longer than usual?>
Pink: <I can hear the battling getting closer, we're almost there!>
-Crawls out of my tent-
Kinda chilly today.
Nemean Lion: <I can still fight...>
-Wild Charges Shadow Robinson-
Alex: Someone can't take a joke.
-She and Cogsworth follow-
-Someone is limping toward Jonathan and Dave-
Edited by Umbramatic on Feb 8th 2020 at 6:08:24 AM
Lillifuture Jonathan: Uh... Dave?
Dave: Holy shit, is that... Lieutenant Cross?
Dave runs toward the figure and attempts to help him toward the car.
Lillifuture Jonathan: PC, could you confirm?
PC: ~Yeah, that's him alright. Seems a bit worse for wear. We could drive him to the nearest hospital. His injuries are painful, but they're not that bad that we'd need advanced tech to deal with it. It's gonna be slow, though.~
Daydre has been here doing things in the background the entire time, and at Rose's prodding does something not in the background.
"... Uhh.. Okay, it's not much, but-"
Kaguya gives Daydre a "what are you thinking" look as the plan flows in, but obliges and attempts to intercept any attacks headed towards Nemean Lion- body glowing with a mirror-like sheen.
Rowan: <Right, we can figure that out later.>
Daydre also flushes. Just a little.
"Um, yes. Definitely. Absolutely."
French Narrator from Spongebob: "One training session later..."
-Aspen returned Arrokuda to her Pokėball after defeating a Rollycoly and head towards Route 4-
'Oh there's the gym up ahead! I'm almost there!' -She explored the route, heading towards Turffield, finding a Rare Candy, Energy Powder, 3 Nest Balls, 2 Paralyze Heals, Sharp Beak, Silver Powder, and a Cleanse Tag-
-Aspen heads towards the Pokemon Center to heal-
Turffield Pokemon Center
-She healed her Pokemon and rested for awhile, bonding with her Arrokuda-
The fatigue of Mercury and his failed assault catch up to him, and by extension Camazotz.
Rage and Love collapsed, as did his Persona, fading in a flash as his blindfold reappeared. He picked himself up as best he could, staggering to a wall or something to prop up against.
"I... was not prepared," he considered.
<Oh, that makes sense,> Lucario considered, pausing upon feeling a massive influx of stray Aura with no bodies attached to it. Like...
<Someone's getting 100 souls ripped from them!> He realized, dashing off with Extreme Speed to investigate.
Waiting for Evelyn and Ian is a young-ish [Scottish] man who speaks Galarian with a noticeable accent. His tie is loosened, and in general he doesn't seem to be the stiff, corporate type. Also, despite not being [Asian], he looks remarkably like Priscilla but as a guy. Next to him is a sleeping, black wooloo.
Scott: Come in. We've been expecting you.

Channah: Uh, okay? -gives chase, following a bouncing Kandace-
Big Savings: -plays the Sonic the Sandslash drowning theme while watching black liquid leak out from underneath the bathroom door-
-the liquid materializes into the vague shape of a human, sand pouring from its eyes-
Liquid Figure: anchor
Big Savings: -backing away- < your mom >
Liquid Figure: let me in
Big Savings: < we should take this common sense, and push it somewhere else >
