Royal: ...We're going to have to fight him aren't we?
Gaius: Blue and yellow, huh? They should be easy to spot, I don't think they know as much about stealth as I do.
Dr. Multimom: Ahaha, reminds me of when I first started out... League was different back then but it was still a good time.
Walter: <I'm getting... Nostalgic...>
Ishtar: -pouts- There's gotta be something to do here.
Oooookay, guess we're gonna have to fight that. I'll get a scan on but I'm pretty sure that is a very Fire slash Ground boy right there.
-Rakash gets out his navigator book and starts looking for info-
-/Duck/ emerges from the hard-drive and with a bit of adjusting and scaling projects a map of the surface (circa pre-War) over the subway map with a small red dot-
/Duck/: <That is where we were attacked and presumably close to where our two groups fell into the tunnels.>
-The red dot turns into a larger red circle as the surface map fades out-
/Duck/: <There's our search area.>
Me: <What light?>
-Ian and Evelyn facefault.-
Will: Does that mean you're competing in this year's challenge?
Fuka rummages in her bag and pulls out a pink colored Poke Ball. She holds it, takes aim, and throws it at the meowth.
The Poke Ball hits the Meowth, who is covered to light and put into it.
Fuka: Woo-hoo! I've captured the best Meowth of them all!
The light eventually stopped moving, off came footsteps.
"Yes, right over here, got to learn how to have a sense of direction down here or else you get lost, damned tunnels are like mazes," Artyom explained.
Stylus stepped out and looked over, <This is just rubble.>
"Yes but I saw something move out here."
From behind some of the debris, Ribbon poked her head out, <Stylus!> she shouted before tackling him, wrapping her ribbons around him in a hug.
<That's cute,> Hunter muttered with a laugh.
Artyom looked over everyone else, "Quite the party you got here."
<Found em faster than expected,> Stylus admitted, not exactly trying to fight Ribbon off.
<The way of the Metro is a mysterious one,> Khan added.
"Dear Arceus someone shut him up! I can feel my brain melting every time he opens his mouth!" Victor exclaimed in pain.
Arthur sighed, "Yeah... my... well friend is a bit strong... My... even acquaintance is a bit strong... associate? No. Travelling jackass, yes my Travelling Jackass and I are going on a little tour over Galar."
Victor stared and flipped Arthur the bird as he continued talking, "Quite frankly locking himself up in a stuffy castle is bad for his social health."
Piku-chan: <Is it safe to come out now?>
-As Rakash discovers, there's not necessarily a need for this Cognition to be known as anything other than what it is. It is Heatran, the Lava Dome Pokemon, a creature of legends in its own right. But there is one other name that such a creature has been known by, as he finds in his book. It is a god of fire, of volcanoes, of the desert. A divine force of fire and metal.-

-Outlaw swallows dryly, then clenches her fists and steels herself.-
Outlaw: ...I don't know if it's able to follow us out of the Metaverse. I don't want to find out. So I guess this means I should stop running away.
-Outlaw wipes a bead of sweat from her head, turning Maui toward the Heatran climbing out of the rubble.-

Violet: Yeah, though they still managed to get away...
-Roger waves at Cavity while smiling.-
Roger: ~Congratulations on your new pokemon!~
-Gwen and Eva are standing in front of a bowl of pancake mix by the stove.-
Merah: <Okay, let the pancake making begin! Gwen, you go first.>
Gwen: D'accord. Time to show you how it's done.
-She pours some of the pancake mix into the pan, spreading it out flat. She expertly flips the pancake and before long, lays a quite large, round pancake on a plate.-
Gwen: I'd like to see you try and beat that!
Eva: Well, before I do...
-She pulls out her small tub of fidget putty...-
Eva: Ambiguous phrase!
-One poof later and she's a magical girl.-
Eva: If I'm going to fail spectacularly, I might as well entertain!
-She uses her telekinesis to lift a blob of pancake mix out of the bowl and spins it rapidly midair until it's flat. She hovers it above the stove until the underside is cooked. Just then, Ampere runs through the door.-
Ampere: <Hey have you made any pancakes yet?>
-Eva turns around to face ampere, dropping the finished pancake. It lands on the stove and burns to a crisp.-
Gwen: At least there's more mix left... Though one of you is going to have to clean that up.
PMD-B Group A
Me: -she pointed with her horn at the glowing spotlight ahead- <That one up ahead.>
Abe-no-Seimei: -mirroring Director's scowl- Such a detestable mockery of Grandfather Mountain.
Director: Then if there is no other choice, let's take him out.
-The onmyōji turns in the air gracefully as he chants melodiously. As the chant progresses, the gem in the onmyōji's shaku gleams as he casts a Light Screen over his allies.-
-The [Spanish] dancer appears in a flourish of petal-shaped embers.-
Carmen: Hot and heavy... My kind of weather.
-Carmen chuckles as Tigress rolls her eyes.-
Tigress: Let's just weaken it.
Carmen: Weak in the knees?
Tigress: ... No.
-Carmen then starts to speak in a carrying whisper full of dark secrets aimed to lower Vulcanus' special attack.-
Tigress: -slapping Mona's cheeks- As for you, we need you now.
Mona: <Owowowowowowow. What was that for—> -sees Vulcanus- <YIKES!>
-leaping out of Tigress' arms- <Zorro! Protect us!>
-The black-clad swordsman once again appears and flares his cape as he spreads a screen to diffuse physical attacks.-
Hound: <Raijuu! Blind him!>
-The electric hound snarls savagely as he manifests and gathers energy into his fur, then, howls at the desert sky releases he releases the energy as a blinding Flash.-
-Hound and Mona twinge from a burning pain as heat overtakes their Personas.

Ariadne: -Switching to Omoikane- <This is just... unfair.>
Pink: -Has Galen send a wave at Vulcanus with a wave of his staff-
-Hanging around the pier-
Hulbury, Galar's most famous port city, home of the [Beatles], and the most museums in the region.

Owen: <Did you know that the [Beatles] wrote [Sergeant Pepper] as a creative response to [Pet Sounds] by the Beach Boys?>
Channah: We should visit some museums.
C: "That's just my dark aura messing with your brainwaves."
"C he's a vampire not a psychic."
C: "Vampires hypnotize people. I read about it?"
"Where, on a gum wrapper?"
She shook her head then turned back to the Slayer.
"It's nice you have a travel buddy. You wouldn't be open to commissions, would you? I don't want to disrupt your vacation but I've got weeb sord designs swimming in my brain."
Kim: (looking over at Ian and Evelyn) "Is it that shocking to you? I mean, it is shocking, but it's not that shocking."
Silas felt the heat and grunted, would it be possible for the Metaverse to not cause him misery? Just once, just this once?
He grunted, and quietly dispelled Knight, who said "Weeeaaaaaaaaaaaak" before vanishing.
He gripped the mask as it reappeared on his face and crushed it in hand, summoning Solaire, this would hopefully help with the heat.
<They're here! We got everyone, it's okay everyone!> Ribbon called out.
Stylus finally stood up, <We're okay. /Duck/ and I are fine, this person helped us, actually what are you?>
Artyom turned to Stylus, "A Spartan Ranger of the Order. I helped find the lost bunker complex known as D6 and-" he paused, the look on his face seeming distant and regretful, "Helped save humans from the Dark Ones."
Stylus and Ribbon stared, <With a name like that, that couldn't have been good news.>
<A name you attach to something you fear, makes it easier for you to fear them and want them gone,> Khan said.
<Don't mind him, he's like this. The Dark Ones were driving people catatonic and had wiped out a few stations, it was our survival or theirs. We don't have the luxury to play nice,> Hunter responded.
<Spoken like a cog.>
<Spoken like someone who has never had to make a hard choice.>
Artyom looked at the reformed adventuring party, then to his compatriots, "Don't mind them, they're just like this."
Stylus grumbled, <Good news is we have transportation around these tunnels.>
"Yes, if you could please join me, I could take you back to D6 for a debriefing," Artyom added, "Miller and Anna will have a few questions to ask."
"No no, I am in fact psychic," Victor explains, "Minor level really but it's more than enough to make my sword fly and command my castle... which Arthur here says I'm not allowed to summon."
"Godzilla threshold pal," Arthur explains.
Upon Lita's request, it's Arthur's turn to look uncomfortable as Victor starts laughing.
"He left his mobile forge, in his airship, over 15 miles from here days ago, I said I'd only join if he didn't fly his airship everywhere because I'm not allowed my castle."
Arthur sighed, "It's a fair deal really... so I'm sadly not currently open for commissions, not unless we find another smithy."

-She came out of the rubble and shaked, getting some dust off herself- Me: Dark Ones? D6? Spartan Ranger of the Order? So many questions.
The gob of poison found its mark on the oversized target, which recoiled.
Milo: “My Eldegoss is a hardy one! Resilient to disease and toxins, as good crops should be! Eldegoss! Max Strike!”
The Dynamaxed Eldegoss winds up to use the Normal type max move.
Sorceress: "We didn't come this far to give up now!"
Songstress: <We'll extinguish you!>
-Cait Sith Calms herself and her Mins, eyes wide.-
-Puck snaps his "head" back into place and strikes his dagger against a tendril.-
-Amphirite attempts to summon an Aqua Ring but the water simply sizzles and boils. She and her user visibly panic.-
-Amphirite cringes as the heat boils her liquidy form. Sweat dolls down Sorceress's face.-
Sorceress: "This might be an issue!"
Elizabeth: "There's ruins in town. And the Gym Battles. And...Wooloo? If I had known how pretty the grass here is I would have planned a picnic."
We've handled harder enemies with less powerful allies at our side. We've got this team.
Gulduar: <Phantoms, let's rock!>
Anthem: <Eris! Keep your distance and avoid getting burnt!>
Eris: <That might be an issue, my moveset is rather lacking in that regard.>
Anthem: <And Patriot is the same deal eh? Egh, this is frustrating... Just prep up stat boosts then.>
-Remember how Shift was just being held underneath Rakash's arm? Yeah there's Mimic there now. Mimic quickly breaks free of the grab and starts bouncing towards Heatran-
Wait no you're made of wood that's a bad idea!
Mimic: <Cronchy rock monster!>
/Duck/: <I would very much like to visit Deep Six.>
"Please, step onto the tram, we have a long journey ahead and if the ceiling has cracked open, then more Nosalises must be on their way."
<I'm still not used to that name... Nosalises. Are there other mutants?> Stylus asked.
"Oh yes. So strange to see so many once friendly mons become something much different, but generations of this have just ensured this result," Artyom explained sadly as he got back on the service-car.
Ribbon hopped up, <We saw some Flygons that looked... rather different, up above, what are those called?>
"Ah. Demons, they're rather tough, mostly due to the flying part."
Stylus blinked, <Demons?>
"Some people call them demons, I knew a man that had a different name for them. Bitches."
<Shame what happened to Bourbon,> Hunter lamented.
<It was good I met you two at that time when it did, you would have not escaped the bandits without my help otherwise,> Khan noted.
Stylus looked around to everyone, <Anyone feel like we just got dropped into a story in progress with no idea what happened previously?>
Me: -She got on the tram- <Yeah>
Logan: -appreciatively- Cute pajamas. Very extreme-lab-coat-worthy.
-wink- And I'll do my best.
Addie: -waving- <Stay safe yourself!>
Wisp: -peeks out at the passing Marowak, before burrowing deeper into the Styler-
-weird day indeed-
(-they pick a random direction and stroll away toward the sound of chaos (chaos)-)
Megan: -flops facefirst into a pillow-
Pippy: -phone glance- <Ah, she gets it.>
Pollen: -blank stare-
Megan: Oh, um, take your time! ^_^
Pippy: <Despite prevalence in media, not every Journey™ has a rival, and those without them are undoubtedly as rich as those with.> ~v~
<All the same, if you ever did decide it'd be an honor—>
-blink, realizing- <...to have you as a rival on...this journey, that is happening. Apparently.>
Byleth: -inclining their head- Fun indeed. - _-
Fraidy: -lizard smile-
-and Logan, looking at their...watch? the clock on their wrist Styler, finally ushers Megan toward the stadium and the ceremony that will have happened at some point-
Megan: -departing- U-um, see you?
Pippy: -trotting along- <I-I think they'll be there…>
Vee: -wink- <I'll see y'all there~>
Vee: -yowl- <No more procrastinatin'!>
Pippy: -blink- <What?>
Vee: <Catchin' up on Stefan Galaxy—>
Megan: -grin- It was topical.
Vee: <—Constellar Conflicts, Miracle—>
Pippy: -raising a wingtip- <Also topical, interestingly enough.>
Megan: -tinysmile- Heehee.
Vee: -yowl- <Beside the point!!>
<Not that catchin' up on a whole year of cartoons an' movies an' stuff ain't fun an' all, but we've got a schedule to follow! I think!>
Pippy: -holding up flippers, sticking out his tongue- <Okay, okay.>
Megan: -subsiding- Heh. Most of the bags've been packed for a while, at least.
Vee: -pout- <The last one always takes ages.>
Megan: -laugh- Yeeaaahhhhhhhh...
-she slowly, slooowly faceplants into a pillow, from which Pollen begins to bodily drag her-
Pippy: -getting up- <I'll go re-anti-unpack the stuff I re-unpacked.>
Vee: -unfurl- <Lookin' at the map, there's jus' like a road an' a mine between here an' the first Gym. Thes', can ya round up Ceal an' 'Pod an' tell 'em to head northeast?>
Thespi: <Oh, no thanks!> ^_^
Evelyn: <Well, I hope things get better from here...>
-Ian and Evelyn recover from their facefaults-
Me: Honestly... Yes.
Me: <Let's hope.>
Kim: “...why, exactly?”
