-Gaia gasps, then folds her arms imperiously.-
Gaia: You mean to say that you did not already consider me as such? I, Gaia, the Flowering Fury of the Aurabolts, will not stand such an insult to my pride! You had better brace yourself, my rival Rogue, because from this day forth I shall dedicate myself to surpassing you! If there are any thrills or challenges to be found on your path, then they shall either come from facing me, or from trying to catch up in my wake!
Shun: Kill. Me. Now.

I don't know honestly, our conversation last night was kinda heavy...
-Rogue straightens their posture, clenching their fist over their chest. Their cloak billows from a gust blowing through the breezeway.-
Rogue: Hah! Bold words from one whom I've effortlessly thwarted at every turn! How can I be in your wake, when I am always one step ahead? I, Rogue, the legendary phantom thief, will snatch victory from your grasp and make my way to the top of the Galar League!
-They hold the pose for a moment...-
-And then break down into laughter.-
Rogue: Fuck, sorry, I can't help it, breaking character. Whew. Seriously, though, good luck.
Channah: Aw. -awkward pat on the back- Well if you wanna vent, you know.
"That was easy enough almost ten years ago, even with the language barrier..." she considered before nodding. "Alright. I'll sign up, and when I get home I'll ask the gang."
-Gaia manages to keep her composure for a moment longer before she, too, breaks down into helpless giggles.-
Gaia: At the very least, I hope one of the cameras was recording that. Such drama deserves to be immortalised for posterity's stake - though I'm certain we will have many more such clashes before this challenge is over.
-She takes a moment to straighten up and catch her breath, before extending a hand to Rogue.-
Gaia: But yes, if we are permitting ourselves a moment of sincerity, thank you such well wishes, and I wish you all the best of luck as well. Not that I believe you'll need it, of course. If you need me, on the other hand, then you know how to contact me... and I hope to hear from you again soon, because I honestly have missed this.

Me: I'm ready whenever you are!
Piku-chan: <What he said.>
Evelyn: What they said.
-Once again, Rogue's mask fails to portray their expression fully, and the softness that sets in the face behind it. However, they make a point to not slip completely out of the Rogue persona, knowing Shun is right there.-
Rogue: Of course. Just because I'm not an Aurabolt anymore doesn't mean I have to abandon everyone on the team. And especially not you.
-They take Gaia's hand, and give a firm handshake.-
Rogue: I'll see you again out there. You'll just have to look hard enough.
Kai: I'll give whatever excuses I want for whatever horrible puns I want, and you can't stop me.
-Kai smiles and hugs Brie back, giving a kiss on her cheek, and follows her onto Halcyon's back.-
Kai: Lead the way.

"Alright, I'm ready. By the way, where are we going by this portal?"
"Would you be able to like. Lend me some?"
All assembled team members seem mildly confused as to what's going on, save for Rowan.
-Goes into a summary of the conversation last night-
And that's why I've been kinda feeling like crud.
Brie: Of course~
-Halcyon hovers away, taking Kai and Brie over the city sights, until they land in front of a small coffeeshop-
Brie: And here we are.
Ever: Oh. There we go. Put him down, Seedot.
Seedot: <I DON'T HAVE ARMS!>
Ever: ...That is fair. (calling up to Lucius) Hey, Lu! Can you get down, or are we having our date on a giant Seedot?
Seedot: <YOU COULD AT LEAST FIGHT ME!>
Ever: We've established that isn't happening.
I'll be watching your matches dear.
/Duck/: <I am prepared for this adventure. Well at least emotionally. I could of brought weapons but whatever.>
Silas nodded to the last new arrival, "Well if that's everyone. Be prepared everyone, it's likely to be cold on the other side."
Roxy grinned, "Let's go!" She said stepping through the portal.
Silas followed after her.
Stylus stepped onto the cold snow, the chilly wind of the air nipping at him, the fur helped a bit but he quickly pulled on his exploration gear, "There we go."
Ribbon had pulled on her gear as well, and was wearing a pair of skiing goggles, she looked about, "This place is a mess."
Stylus shrugged as he pulled out his pDroid and clicked on its map function, the holographic display taking a moment to render, "This is just a precautionary test, nothing should happen, any satellites that were in orbit should be-"
There was a ping from the pDroid and it displayed a satellite view of the area, even a name, the result was fuzzy and from the notes the satellite was in a decaying orbit. Stylus stared at the result, they were in [MOSCOW] in [RUSSIA]. They were in the Capital City itself, he looked about, "The hell happened here?"
Ribbon did a shrug with her ribbons and turned to the others entering the portal.
-The recent timewarp had happened at a rather inopportune moment. Timewarps are a natural part of living in a pocket dimension, but predicting them and their effects was always the source of many headaches. But it had passed and... dear me, it's already a month and a half into 2020. Skipped right past the most important day of the year, the time for the dance. Obviously, that needs fixing. The dance is a staple! Also let's all of the dissident elements kill each other while they're all in one room, which saves time and resources in the long run. Oh, and then there are those little sandwiches, those are always delightful.-
-What was she doing again? Right, dance invitations. The usual upper crust... the most efficient foremen, that was always good for a laugh... and one miner, as decided by a vote. She hadn't bothered with that last one in a while, since they'd voted for the same Dugtrio over and over and he'd refused to go until she'd stopped offering. But now there was a gang war happening, and if this doesn't bring a swift end to it she could always just send in her troops. But replacing menial workers is always such a pain, much more than simply disrupted supply lines. This is a far more elegant solution.-
-Aspen stepped through the portal-
-Aspen woke up in a room with a dreamish atmosphere, with changeing colors surround her-
Aspen: "W-where am I? Hello? Is anyone here?"
Voice: "Welcome! This is the portal that leads to the world inhabited by Pokemon. Beyond this gateway, many new adventures and experiences await your arrival. Before you depart for adventure, you must answer some questions. Be truthful when you answer them. Now are you ready?"
Voice: "Then let the questions begin! First one: Do you like karaoke?"
"No, not a fan of loudness"
Voice: "Alright next one: Your friends are making plans to hang out, what do you do?"
"I don't really care to be honest."
Voice: "Next one: You take off your shoes to realize that your socks are two different colors. What do you do?"
"I don't mind about the colors."
Voice: "Next: Do you think blameing something on someone is necessary?"
Voice: "Next: Did you make any new year's revolutions?"
Voice: "You see a cake that is one day past it's expired date. You thought?"
"I think about it then decide"
Voice: "Your hiking up a mountain untill you see two paths. Which one do you take: the narrow or wide path?"
Voice: "Last one! "Are you Male or Female?"
Voice: "And now your aura will be analyzed. Your aura is the energy you radiate." -A bow appeared on the floor- "Relax, calm yourself, and press your finger tip gently on the bow."
-Aspen did what the voice told her and the bow turned a fuchsia color-
Voice: "Thank you for answering all those questions! You seem to be... the Jolly type. Your very emotional. It seems you gone through some challenges throughout your life. Perhaps your were born a little bit differently from everyone else. But dispite those differences, your a normal Human in every way. So a jolly type like you... Should be a Galarian Pontya."
-A portal appeared in front of Aspen-
Voice: "Now, walk through that portal. One the other side is the Pokemon world. Be smart, be strong, and be courageous."
[MOSCOW] - PMD-B
-Pokeform Aspen stepped onto the cold snow and put her exportation gear on- 'There we go!' -She looked around- "W-what happened?! Moscow is destroyed!"
-Gaia's grip lingers for a moment before she releases Rogue's hand.-
Gaia: Trust me, I shall remain ever-vigilant. After all, I would hate to miss even a glimpse of you. Anyway... I'm afraid we really ought to be going. There is someone else here who I am very keen to see.
-She turns and walks away. Shun hangs around for a moment, looking between Gaia and Rogue as if putting something together in his head, then shrugs and follows after his newfound partner.-
-Lucius looks slightly miffed at the current situation, not least because he's having to cling to the Seedot's stem to stop himself from sliding off.-
Lucius: Um... I'm not sure. Having no arms shouldn't be an excuse for not putting me down! I've only got one arm, and I manage to not carry stuff all the time!
Lucius: Little help here, Maul?
Maul: ~We've established that isn't happening either.~
Lucius: ...Yeah, should've expected that. Erm... don't suppose you can get up here somehow, babe?

Me: Well... I think it's time... What do you think, Evelyn?
Evelyn: I think we can do this... Let's go! Hatty...
Evelyn and I: Might as well JUMP!
-Ian, Piku-chan, Evelyn and Hatty jump through the portal together!-
Voice: Welcome! This is the portal that leads to the world inhabited by Pokémon. Beyond this gateway, many new adventures and experiences await your arrival. Before you depart for adventure, you must answer some questions. Be truthful when you answer them. Now are you ready?
-Evelyn looks around confusedly, as she has never heard this voice before in her life... but snaps out of her confusion quickly and prepares to answer from the depths of her heart...-
Voice: Then let us begin... Question 1: A nerve-racking first day at school! You want to make friends with someone you just met. What do you do?
Evelyn: I go over to them and introduce myself!
Voice: Question 2: Have you had any hobbies for a long time?
Evelyn: Well... Ever since I was eight, I always thought magic and witchcraft made for good hobbies...
Voice: Interesting... Question 3: There is a wallet on the side of the road. What do you do?
Evelyn: I turn it over to the police.
Voice: Question 4: Do you think that lies are sometimes necessary?
Evelyn: Would it be a lie if I said no? If not, then no!
Voice: Question 5: There is an alien invasion! What will you do?
Voice: Very well... Question 6: You valiantly fight the aliens... ...but you are defeated!
Voice: An alien tells you, "YOU HAVE IMPRESSED US. IT WAS A PLEASURE TO SEE. JOIN US, AND TOGETHER WE SHALL RULE THE WORLD." How do you reply?
Evelyn: I get back on to my feet... AND REFUSE TO JOIN THEM!
Voice: Wh-Well then... Question 7: Somebody calls you "weird but funny" How does that make you feel?
Evelyn: Honestly... that's how I've always been... so it would definitely make me happy!
Voice: Final Question: Are you Male or Female?
Voice: And now your aura will be analyzed. Your aura is the energy you radiate...
-Two bows appear...One before Evelyn, and another before Ian.-
Voice: Relax, calm yourself, and press your finger tip gently on the bow.
Me: Huh? Why do I get a bow? I didn't answer any of the questions.
Evelyn: I'm sure that your answers would've been similar to mine... with exceptions to the second and last ones...
-At that moment, Ian hears a voice echoing through his mind as well...-
Voice: The witch-girl is correct. You are a kind individual, greatly similar to her in a few respects. Now, I shall analyze both of your auras. Just relax, calm yourselves, and press your finger tips gently on your bows...
-Evelyn relaxes, calms herself, and touches her finger tip to her bow, turning it a mystic purple color.-
-Ian does the same, turning his bow a vivid pink.-
Voice: Thank you for answering all those questions, witch-girl!
Evelyn: Actually... my name's Evelyn.
Voice: Evelyn... what a lovely name. Regardless, Thank you for answering all those questions! You seem to be... the Jolly Type. You're very emotional. It seems you gone through some challenges throughout your life. Perhaps your were born a little bit differently from everyone else. Despite your differences, you're human through and through... A Jolly type like you should be... A Ralts!
Evelyn: So cute!
-A portal then opens before Ian, Piku-chan, Hatty and Evelyn.-
Voice: Now, walk through that portal. One the other side is the Pokemon world. Be smart, be strong, and be courageous.
-Evelyn nods as the voice ceases to echo in her mind... she looks to her friends, who look back to her, and they all run through the portal... together.-
-Evelyn slowly awakens to find what looks like blue hair obstructing her eyes...-
Evelyn: <U-Urgh... What... happened? Are we...?>
-Evelyn clears the hair out of her eyes, and holds her hand away from her face... well... a Ralts' hand...-
Evelyn: <I'm a... Pokémon? It worked!?>
-Ian awakens with a start.-
Me: <Yep. Looks that way.>
Piku-chan: <Um... Ian...?>
Hatty: <Um... Evelyn?>
Evelyn and I: <Yes? What is it?>
Piku-chan and Hatty: <You're both Raltses, but... how are you different colors?>
-Evelyn and Ian look at each other... Ian notices that Evelyn, as a Ralts, has blue hair, whereas Evelyn notices that Ian, as a Ralts, has green hair.-
Evelyn: <Yes, Ian?>
Me: <I think when you jumped through the portal, you turned into a shiny Ralts!>
-Ian and Evelyn then catch a glimpse of the world around them...-
Me: <What happened here?>
Evelyn: <This place... it's such a... such a...>
Evelyn and I: <MESS!>
Moscow - PMD-B
-Aspen notices an Fuchsia Bow- 'I must have missed this earler' -she equips it-
-She tried to walk towards the new arrivals, but being on four legs isn't as easy as it looks- 'I have to move both front and back legs in order to move' -In no time, she got used to being on 4 legs-
Aspen: <Hey guys!> -she noticed that even their Pokemon are there as well- <I didn't know that Pokemon from our world can be here as well.> -she looked around- <I wondered what happened here...>
-Ian equips his Fuchsia Bow and Evelyn equips her Purple Bow.-
Me: <Your guess is as good as mine... I'm Ian and the shiny one is my friend, Evelyn.>
Evelyn: <Good... morning? Afternoon? Evening? It's hard to tell...>
Piku-chan: <I'm Piku-chan.>
Hatty: <And I'm Hatty.>
Me: <So, what's your name?>

-/Duck/ emerges through the portal entirely unchanged. Because it is already a Pokemon-
/Duck/: <Ooh, chilly. I hope you brought coats sirs.>
-The floating cyberduck then shudders a little, rotating to face skyward for a moment-
/Duck/: <Oh peculiar. I shall endeavor to clarify the Situation as we progress.>
Me: <Nice to meet you, Aspen.>
Evelyn: -to /Duck/- <Do you know what could've happened here?>
Channah: Yeah that's pretty heavy. Wish I could do something to help.
Channah: -muttering to herself outside- Okay, just don't freak out and we'll be okay. It's just a Grass-type user. You've beaten sixteen gyms before this one. You got this. -stalks into the stadium and enters the gym mission- ...Dang, this is big.
Gym guy: Your mission is this! To chase our unruly Wooloo!
Gym guy: Oh, by the way, you can call me D-
Channah: -stomps past him to the Wooloo-
Wooloo: -perfectly still-
Channah: MOVE IT
-the Wooloo go rolling as she begins to chase them. They burst through the first hay bale wall in no time-
Channah: That wasn't so baa- Hey!
Yamper: <Oh boy, here I go herding again!>
Channah: -looks around as the Yamper sends the Wooloo scattering in all directions. She spies the trainer at the end and runs up to him- Hey. Control your Yamper.
Gym Trainer: Not without a battle first!
Channah: -sighs- Jack, get this done fast. I have... pastoral duties to take care of.
Jack: <Yes madam!> -uses Flame Charge on the enemy Gossifleur-
-and so it goes-
Other Gym Trainer: -watches as his Pokemon falls in defeat- Good show!
Jack: <Wowee! Look at me! I... have floppy ears.> -flops his ears-
Channah: It's a better look on you. Come on. We've a 12-year-old in a muscle suit to beat.
Me: "You too" 'I wonder what I look like now? I never see a Galarian Ponyta before. Wonder what moves I have.' -She checked them real quick- 'Tackle, Growl and Tail Whip? Basic moves but I'll see some good ones in the future when I level up. What about abilities?' -checked abilities as well- 'Run Away? Well, that's useless. Pastel Veil? "Prevents you and your allies from getting poisoned"? That's pretty handy! I'm a Psychic type as well!'
