Channah: -stops, looking down at the ball- ...That's a lot to pay attention to. At least it's not random-ass magic like Wurmple I guess.
All the spinning reminds me of my adventures with Cleffa in the Dream World, I did a lot of spinning there. Also, if you get a shiny, that's a variety on its own like Minior are.
Channah: @_@ Too much cream. Kind of wish Wobbuffet came in that many varieties. That'd be cool.
Well it's even more if Andy can Gigantamax, but you gave Kamon your Band so even if he can that's not happening anytime soon, if ever. From what I hear Gigantamax Alcremie... really takes the cake.
Channah: ... -squints- Alright. Not like we need any juicing, though, right guys?
-Owen and Jack nod-
Roxy and Silas sat at a table, staring at what looked to be a messenger bag sized for pokemon, along with a poncho that Snakeye was discussing. They went over details and items they were putting in, Hacks watching and nodding along.
Byleth sat on the couch and stared, it had been a little bit since he had been brought here and he was still having trouble adjusting. He didn't exactly feel right in this body, it felt like his but also didn't feel like his either, Dimitri had adapted a bit better, but learning their potential fates from the game of their world was... unsettling.
Even stranger were the magic items that seemed capable of switching between human and creature so easily, Silas had one and apparently he used it here and then. Byleth had seen his creature form, it was not as impressive as he had thought it had been, it looked just like his friend Hacks. Apparently they had another that could turn the creatures... pokemon into humans.
"So why don't you just grab one and put it on?" A voice came out.
Byleth looked about and saw... her.
The individual didn't stand very tall, had a purple outfit and dark blue robes that seemed too big to fit her. It was Sothis, and to Byleth's continuing confusion she was still human, and somehow out of that... room she and Byleth shared.
Sothis picked up a pencil, or at least tried to and frowned when her hand went through the table, "It's not like the monotone wonder over there is a bad guy, if you were to put the scarf on he'd probably have no issue with it. Do it!"
Byleth sighed, it would be a long day.
Byleth: -wearing a hat apparently themed after a human skull- I'm Byleth.
The confusion's understandable, I am often rather bonely. • _•
Fraidy: -looking up at the humans- <Yes?>
-leaning back- <Everyone's tall…>
Vee: -laying down and curling up- <I'm not!>
-she yawns- <...meteorology's interestin'. Gotta get Thespi in on this...>
Megan: -blink blink- Wh—m-me??
Hahahha, no??? :D
-tugging at her shirt neck- I'm not, like, a scientist or anything, I don't like know stuff, I just kinda...wander around and look at stuff I don't really my measurements probably aren't reliable my notes're mostly speculative I mostly just try to copy stuff I saw someone else do or things from like anime I'm not
-at some point, the mumbling falls below the human range of audibility-
Pippy: -to Brie- <Good for you!> ^V^
<Ooooh, yeah! Gotta have a good rival. We tried to set up an account for Megan to match with one, once, but she never went for it.> -nodnod-
<...or get a date, either or. Classic will-they<3-or-will-they<3<-or-won't-they plot, it was not.> -shrug-
-headtilt- <Why don't you think it'll work out? Scientists can be incredibly dangerous.>
Fraidy: -eventually, by Megan's foot- <Your Trainer's very blue!>

Oh, that? I just left for Turffield because I didn't feel like waiting for it any longer.
-Pride is struck by the railgun-fired Snag Ball, and barely has time to squeak out half an objection before he's sucked into it.-
-It shakes once, and then seals.-
Jevil: <Ha ha! Never have I had so much fun, fun!>
-He bounds through the halls with enough vigor that Logan barely has time to keep up. In fact, he might have lost Jevil's trail, if another room hadn't caught Jevil's attention.-
Jevil: <Oh, hoo hoo, what do we have here, here? The monster with the muddled mind!>
-Specifically, the room with Carna, and PEFE!Every's team. Carna sees Jevil, then the chemicals PEFE!Every seems to be messing with.-
-And the room is suddenly coated in flames as Carna — pardon the narration's profanity — freaks the fuck out.-
╓───────────────────────────────────────╢ DOCTOR VALENTINA ROBINSON ╟────────────────────────────────────────╖ ╠╡ SOULS ╞═══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╣ ║████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████║ ╚═════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╡ 108/108 ╞╝
-Robinson herself crumples to her knees. It turns out when you've got over a hundred ghosts chewing on you, you become rather dependent on them, and rather physically frail when they suddenly can't keep their grip.-
-It's also very painful.-
Dr. Robinson: NNOO!! WWHHAATT AARREE YYOOUU DDOOIINNGG TTOO MMEE??!!
-The collective of ghosts is a bit more discernible now. Most are, obviously, actual Ghost-type Pokemon, as one might expect. However, the faces of a couple more traditional ghosts also become identifiable — none that Echo particularly recognizes, but it appears that there are both human and true-ghost Pokemon in the mix.-
Echo: You've become a very heavily populated container for lost souls. By your current physical state, I'm guessing you were very close to fusing together with them to create a Spiritomb. Close, but of course you'd have to fully die to become the 108th soul, and of course there'd need to be a keystone to act as the phylactery, which you may or may not have on your person.
-As Barty, Grit, and the ones following them reach the room, a few of the spirits detach from the Robinson Soul Cloud to turn their attention to Echo. For the most part, they aren't particularly powerful looking ghosts, even the ones which are actual Ghost-type Pokemon. Echo takes out a Poke Ball and sends out Jianhuren, and the corrosive precipitation from Pride's Shadow Sky dissipates in the room to be replaced by a snowstorm. Just on its own, a few Shedinja in the cloud are pelted by the ice and collapse.-

-(Incidentally, at about the same time, Pride's Pokeball short-circuits as he's snagged in the other room, and falls off her belt. She can't exactly do much more than seethe in frustration, though.)
-Changeling starts to attack again, but like Tom Fool before him, abruptly stops. He falls to the floor as a plain inanimate plushie.-
Shadow Robinson: NO!
-And the barrage of attacks connects.-

-The weakening mass of souls making up Shadow Robinson's body howls in pain, and the air seems to drop ten degrees, with a supernatural wind chilling everyone to their core.-
-The New Moon's Beast keeps Thrashing at Bluetongue, who seems intent to occupy its attention with Bulldoze even as Runaway grows weaker and weaker.-
Paula: Hey, Rose! Fuck that lame-ass codename. I kinda need you to not die more than anyone else here, pal!
-Maui hooks the Beast with what probably counts as a Razor Shell to pull its attention away, and it staggers, dazed.-

Ever: (delightedly) You make puns~
That name sounds weirdly familiar. Dead dad, expressionless, dresses like they were at the center of one of those math problems with colliding trains carrying clothes from a Hot Topic and a ren faire...
Ohhhhh. Must be one of Megan's friends from Pastoria.
Ever: Good to meet you. I'm Ever!
Oracle: -examines Vee placidly- <You're taller than I am.>
-meanwhile, several Dreepy zip down to join the conversation-
-PEFE!Every listens to Megan, leaning in closer and closer as she gets quieter and quieter, until she's balanced awkwardly on her tiptoes-
PEFE!Every: Nonsense! I'm sure you have a lot to contribute.
-large, earnest goggled eyes-
Brie: (to Pippy, uncomfortably) I mean...it's not that she's not dangerous. She's just...a terrible battler? And also gets nervous around crowds. I don't see why the Gym challenge here has to be so public.
Oracle: <Yours is too. Most of us here are blue. Or at least green. Except the Charmeleon.>
Oracle: <Yes, you're contributing.>
-the wires hold, but the room is set aflame-
-Sporange gulps, and recalls himself-
Scuttle: <Yeah, uh, this is a bit beyond me.>
-and he does the same-
-she sends out Dazzle-
Dazzle: <...Oh, what. Just because I'm tropical—>
PEFE!Every: Start putting out the fires!
Dazzle: <Oh, that makes so much more sense.>
-she begins spraying Waters Gun at the worst fires-
At least this is more familiar.
Shadow-Associated Instability Syndrome, occasionally referred to in common parlance as Reverse or Hyper Mode. Characterized by brief bursts of intense, undirected aggression.
Calmed down by scents— unviable for same reason as sleep gas, aerosol in an ignited room not long-term ideal.
PEFE!Every: Carna! I— ...am not very good at this sort of heartwarming speech thing! But we're both women of science, not emotion! You'd been doing so well up until now, you just have to hold on a little longer while I get these fires out!
Silas looks at Rose, and directs Knight over.
Knight floats over Rose, "The Angel of Death comes for us all in time, but it is not yet our time to walk together. I will do what I can, but this will end with victory, I swear it."
Knight raised his left hand and it began to glow a soft pink, aimed right at Rose.
Scott: It's settled then. We should have everything processed in a day or so. My personal chauffeur would take you to any destination within the city you need to get to.
He reaches out his hand.
Scott: Welcome to Kwan Industries.
Royal: Nemean Lion! Change targets!
Nemean Lion: On it!
-He Thunder Fangs New Moon Beast-
Alex: Nice ghostbusting, Echo!
Cogsworth: <Do we engage?>
Fou: <Don't startle people like that!>
Merlin: Can't say I meant to.
Fou: <You totally did!>
H. G. Cross: ...What kind of criminals?
Gaius: People steal these Pokemon? Hmmm.
-The team stare at the capture, waiting for something to go wrong and then when it's obvious it worked they unilaterally let out a sign of relief-
Carl: <Okay, we're alive. Was that a Shadow or do all Mimikyu do that without the rags on?>
Oakley: <Shadow, definitely a Shadow.>
Lydia: <It is contained now. We won!>
Revol: <Hey so Donphan in the room, I didn't see an Aura Sensor on that snagger.>
Oakley: <I'm sure he has a good reason to... Let's bring up the topic when he gets back. Something like this will take tact to handle.>
Revol: <And he'll deflect like always. I say we smash it now.>
Monos: <You attempt to do so and I will defend myself and this device.>
-The Oshawott grumbles and wanders to his pokeball-
Revol: <I know our trainer too well, he'll justify anything and deflect any word otherwise...>
-And well, he recalls himself-
Don't die either Paula. It's not—
-He stalls, face draining of previous emotion before he regains a confused confidence-
It's... It's probably not a good thing for a Shadow to die?
Anthem: <Everything alright Rak?>
It's fine. It's fine...
Mimic: <One by one your allies abandon you. We are kin, you and I. But I am far hungrier...>
Turffield Pokemon Center
-She wanders around the town and can be interacted with-
-Ian reaches his hand out to meet Scott's in a handshake.-
Me: Thank you.
<Huh,> Sylveon observes, having caught up with some help from her Quick Claw.
She screams a Hyper Voice, hoping to snag a number of Ghost 'Mons with the Pixilated attack.
"Hm," Rage and Love observes, picking himself up. "Seems we got her on the ropes. Alright," he said disinterestedly, removing his blindfold for Camazotz to appear. "Do what you can."
A Dragon Pulse fired from him.
-Everyone shivers with damage, but it's not too bad.-
Guardian: <Thine soldiers art dropping like flies, Doctor. Prepare thyself to be cut down to size!>
Elizabeth: "Cait Sith! Psyshock!"
-The catmon blinks, purple-pink orbs spiraling at Plutus.-
-Amphirite spins into another song.-
Violet: Apparently yes. Bit of a sour experience for my first time seeing a couple of people in colour coded spandex. Literally! They both seemed to have constructed their teams on a single colour!
???: So, where have you been?
-The other twin stopped in their tracks, trying to think quick with arms full of bags-
???: I went down to the village, took in a farmer's market, got some fresh ingredients and had lunch. Something called a 'chip buttie' which is horrific in concept but the place I had it at managed to make it work in a meant-to-be-a-greasy-mess kind of way. ???: Explain?
-The purplenamed twin sets down the grocery bags and takes a moment to consider the reply-
???: Fries. Sauce. Between two pieces of bread. ???: Like a poutine sandwich? ???: Yes! ???: Egh! ???: I know! The mere concept is terrible but the execution turned out like halfway okay!? ???: I don't think I can trust your culinary integrity anymore. But also, we were supposed to be rehearsing today, remember? ???: Riiiiiiiight, well I think I have something to make it up to you.
-The purplenamed sibling reached into one of the grocery bags and put two over-sized apples on the table; one red, one green-
???: Okay so this world has some nice big juicy apples, that doesn't- ???: No no, watch. ~Whistle~
-At the signal, a pair of eyes pop out the top of each apple-
???: Okay so the apples have eyes in this universe!? ???: Actually, it's a creature inside the apple. ???: That still doesn't explain why- ???: Lulu, It's a dragon. Lulu: Why would the- 'wyrm in the apple' makers-damn-it. But why bring them here??? ???: I was thinking we could train them~ Lulu: Oh no you've gone native. ???: Come on, it's the done thing around here. Lulu: Takcoria D Thunderarse what is mom gonna think, you coming home with a strange mon? Scandalous. Takcoria: Firstly, that is a terrible fake last name and I feel you're angling for me to remark on that D. Secondly I want the n today. Lulu: You could of had the n if you turned up for rehearsals. Takcoria: Well do you want an apple-dragon or not? Lulu: Of course I want an apple-dragon. I'm just saying I'm still going to be cross if we lose our first round because you wanted a disgusting poutine-sandwich. Takcoria: Luperian, we're gonna kill it out there. Trust me mhm?
Scott shakes his hand. Not long after, his chauffeur arrives to escort the duo to Scott's Rolls Royce.
It should be noted that Jon has taken a hologram form.
Dave: You know darned well who I'm talking about. The so-called "J-Team heroes" that those terrorists at Team Signal recruited in this timeline. To think people ever thought so highly of those meddling little creeps.
Ms. Montalban: Did you say "Descartes?" Like, Desmond Descartes? That definitely sounds familiar.
Jon stares at her with some surprise, while Tommy is kinda giddy.
Tommy: Ohhh, Ms. Montalban has an old flame. I'm not the only one with ex issues anymore!
Ms. Montalban: Oh, shut up, Petersen. It's not like that at all!

We can do that!?!?!?
I COULD HAVE BEAT MILO ALREADY
IVE BEEN HERE FOR 11 DAYS DOING FUCK ALL FOR NO REASON
-Catching up to Robinson and Echo-
That is a lot of ghosts. Gonna be doing a lot of sendings tonight.
-Does the Dark-type Z-Move Dance as Botuli sends out a Black Hole Eclipse at the ghostmons-
It's not a videogame, we can go whenever we want. 🤷🏿♂️ Well, except in Galar the Gym Leader order is enforced instead of just recommended.
-Aspen explored the town, finding an Black Belt, 3 X-Attacks, 2 Revives, a Max Revive, a Leaf Stone, an Everstone, and a TM for Brutal Swing. She then released Carbuncle and they teleported to the Wild Area-
Wild Area, near Bridge Field
-They arrived and Aspen returns Carbuncle and she noticed a Snorlax across the bridge-
'Why is there a Snorlax? Maybe if I run fast, I can out run it'
-She starts run across the bridge, avoiding the Snorlax-
Wild Area, Bridge Field
"Alright, I made it! Now, what should I go to first? What is that?" -She noticed a den, glowing with a reddish light, she went towards it and looked inside-
"What on earth is that?" -She tooked out her Pokedex and scanned it-
"Arceus Christ! That's terrifying. But at the same time, it looks cute for some reason. I might be able to catch it" -She checked her bag for some Net Balls, which she have 16 of- "Good, I have enough." -She went inside the den-
"It's kind of weird in here. Why is it stormy in here? I wonder where the Sizzlipede is? Oh, is that it?" -She went closer towards a sleeping Sizzlepede, a massive one, bigger than Dyanmax, a Gigamax Sizzlipede-
"W-WHY IS IT SO BIG!?"
-The sleeping Sizzlipede woke up- <You DARE bring Pokeballs to my lair?! YOU MUST DIE!>
'I shouldn't have done that. Oh, crap.' -She released Arrokuda-
<Trainer, what are we fig- WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?!>
<MAHAHAHAH! You dare challenge me? The almighty queen Sizzlipede? Well, good luck with that.>
-A weird aura appeared around Aspen and Arrokuda, Dyanmax energy-
"Ready Arrokuda? You about to get huge!"
<Wait, what? You expect me to fight THIS THING?!>
"Yes, but don't worry, it's a fire type as well, so you'll have an advantage to it."
<O-ok. Let's do it then!>
-Arrokuda suddenly got bigger and bigger, but not as big as the Sizzlipede-
-Aspen notices that Arrokuda's HP got bigger, but that's it-
'I was totally expecting more from that Dyanmax, but, let's get this battle underway'
<So you DO challenge me? Very well, I'll make this your FIRST and LAST Dyanmax battle! Bring it on trainer!>
<Very well. Although this may be my first Dyanmax, and my first for my trainer here. We'll be sure to defeat you!>
"Alrght Arrokuda use Liquidation!"
-Arrokuda surrounds herself in water and slams herself into the Gigamax Sizzlipede-
<Hmph, for a rookie, your not bad. Anyways, it's yours truly turn!> -Sizzilpede surrounds herself with fire, then rolls into a ball, and rolls at Arrokuda-
<H-how did-> <It's Flame Weel, but not what you see normally. Anyways, what's your next move?
"Simple! Arrokuda use Liquidation!"
-Arrokuda surrounds herself with water, and slams into Sizzlipede and Sizzlipede's defense droped, but failed to do so-
'Her defense didn't drop? Ugh, that could've been used to my advantage.'
<Wow... Nice strategy rookie! Trying to drop my defense even though I have an abilty that prevents ANY stat drops whatsoever! Well, if your trying to do that... Then how about I do the same to you!?>
-Sizzilpede unleashed a Smokescreen at Arrokuda, decreaseing her accuracy-
<Ugh... I can't see.>
<MAHAHAHA! Now THIS is what happens to Mon's who challenge ME!>
'Arrokuda... She appears to go back to normal size after Sizzlipede attacks her this turn... What can I do? I might be able to do an Ice Fang and hope for a freeze. Or Poison Jab and hope for poison. I think Ice Fang would be most helpful, but it's a 20% chance to freeze.'
"Arrokuda use Ice Fang!" -Arrokuda's fangs became light blue and quickly went towards Sizzlipede and bit it, freezeing her-
<B-but HOW!? I'M a FIRE type! I CAN UNTHAW MYSELF!> -She tries but to no avail- <Why you little Just WAIT! JUST WAIT UNTILL I UNTHAW MYSELF! JUST YOU WAIT!>
-Arrokuda decreased to normal size- <Now, let's end this!> -She surrounds herself in water and slams into Sizzlipede-
-The Gigamax Sizzlipede suddenly explodes, it's become weak- <H-how did someone as weak as you could possibly DEFEAT ME?>
-Aspen readied a Net Ball and it grew in size to capture the Gigamax Sizzlipede-
<N-no! Don't you dare! Please don't! I'm just a mere Sizzlipede. A Queen one! Why catch me.?>
<You haven't noticed haven't you? Your Dyanmax was bigger than mine. It's Gigamaxing. Only specific Pokemon can do that.>
<ALIGHT! Now see here you- Huh?>
-Before the Sizzlipede can attack Arrokuda, Aspen throws a Net Ball at her-
-Aspen went to get the Net Ball that contained the Gigamax Sizzlipede and noticed a band that was dropped by it. Suddenly, the wishing piece in her bag starts glowing. She took out the piece and it combined with the band, making a Dyanmax/Gigamax Band. Aspen put it on her left wrist-
"Thanks Arrokuda!" -She petted she happily-
<Your welcome! I noticed something weird when battling though. When, I Dyanmaxed, I only lasted for 3 turns. Sizzlipede lasted throughout the entire battle.>
"That's strange. These dens must have some weird power to make Pokemon Dyanmax." -She stopped petting Arrokuda- "Once again thank you!" -She returned Arrokuda to her Pokėball and picked the Nest Ball up and left the Pokemon Den-
-Aspen released Carbuncle and they teleported to the Turffield Pokemon Center-
-Aspen healed her Pokemon and checked out her newest member and nicknamed it-
Name: Sizzlipede (Mushu)
Moves: Flame Weel, Smoke Screen, Bite, Wrap
Me: Thanks again, Mr. McSweeney. Let's go, Evelyn.
-Ian and Evelyn head out to where the chauffeur had parked.-
-Ian and Evelyn see the car... and a strange pink Pokémon with a floral pattern on its body, sleeping on the car.-
-Ian and Evelyn look at each other, then back at the Pokémon sleeping on the car, then check their Pokédexes.-
Ian and Evelyn's Pokédexes: Munna, the Dream Eater Pokémon. A Psychic type. Munna can eat the dreams of people and Pokémon alike, and then project those dreams by emitting Dream Mist from its body. People whose dreams are eaten by them forget what the dreams had been about. The mist is pink when it's eating a good dream, and black when it's eating a nightmare.
Me: What's a Munna doing in Motostoke?
Evelyn: Well, a lot of Pokémon in Unova can also be found in Galar. After all...
Me: You make a good point there, Evelyn.
