Follow TV Tropes
-Alice chuckles at Silas's remarks.-
Alice: I hate to suggest that my talents are being oversold, but in this line of work it does help to have something of a fearsome reputation. Most likely, there's nothing for Gio to worry about. But he doesn't need to know that.
-Upon landing, she takes a couple of minutes to make herself presentable (pants are important, after all) before following Silas out...-
-...and surveying her surroundings, her expression subdued but still visibly appreciative.-
Alice: ...Hmm. This is all quite impressive. Certainly a far cry from the cave in which I started my career.
-Her gaze settles on Gio and Gale.-
Alice: Well, speak of the devil. Was I expected, or is this merely a happy coincidence?
(Kim looks on in slight awe and disbelief at what is happening to Ozzy, then smiles.)
Kim: "Well. This time I didn't miss it."
(And then it begins.)
(As Kim, Bede, and the Galarian Rapidash watch in shock and awe, Ozzy flies forward towards his opponent, still bathed in the black energy of Power Trip and the silvery light of his evolution. In mere moments, Ozzy begins to grow bigger, almost as though he is Dynamaxing— and then it happens. Armored parts— wings, talons, a breast plate, and a headpiece resembling a helmet appear in front of Ozzy, who flies into them. The talons clip on first, making his claws more shiny and metallic; then Ozzy flies into two bigger armored parts which clip on just above his thighs. The massive breast plate clips on next, leaving Ozzy's chest fluff intact. The chest fluff above the breast plate promptly grows even fluffier and massive. The wing pieces are next, giving his wings the appearance of armor. Finally, the headpiece helmet, complete with eye holes and a neck, clips on to Ozzy's head and neck, and his eyes glower over at the Galarian Rapidash menacingly as his tail turns navy blue and the lower half of his beak changes to black. The silver light then completely takes over Ozzy's body as the black energy of Power Trip grows, allowing for the clipped-on armored pieces to fuse with Ozzy's body. All the while, as this is happening, Ozzy is spinning around in a circle, like a torpedo, headed straight for the Galarian Rapidash while bathed in the black light of Power Trip.)
(The silvery light quickly fades while Ozzy is still spinning around. While it is a bit difficult to see at first, he is now a Corviknight, and as he rams towards the Galarian Rapidash, he cries out two words:)
Ozzy: <SILENCE, LEGIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON--!>
(And then it hits, knocking the Galarian Rapidash against the wall.)
(Bede glances over at the wall, while the newly-evolved Ozzy triumphantly lands on the floor. A cloud of dust goes up from where the Galarian Rapidash slammed into the wall, and when it fades, the Galarian Rapidash is lying on the floor with swirls in his eyes.)
Galarian Rapidash: (weakly) <Stay out of my way...>
(Ozzy turns to Kim and nods, while Kim looks over at Ozzy with pride.)
Ozzy: <Well. I must say, Kimberly... it feels exquisite to finally be at my final stage of development.>
Kim: "Excellent. I'm glad I was able to see it."

-Ian and Evelyn go wide-eyed in surprise at Ozzy's newfound power.-
-Ian slowly checks his Pokédex.-
Pokédex: Corviknight, the Raven Pokémon and the evolved form of Corvisquire. A Flying and Steel type. This Pokémon reigns supreme in the skies of the Galar region. The black luster of its steel body could drive terror into the heart of any foe. With their great intellect and flying skills, these Pokémon very successfully act as the Galar region's airborne taxi service.
Me: What power...
Evelyn: It took out Bede's Rapidash in a single hit...
(Kim promptly returns the newly-evolved Ozzy back to his PokeBall, and Bede returns his Rapidash, staring out in utter silence.)
Bede: "...wow. Seems like all those added attack and defense boosts from the quiz helped. But don't think I'm out just yet!" (He takes out a PokeBall.) "Go, Mawile!"
(In a flash, a Mawile appears, cackling. Kim thinks for a few moments— and then takes out a PokeBall.)
Kim: "Well, then. Allow me."
(She throws it.)
Kim: "Red alert, Grohl!"
(The PokeBall opens, and in a flash, Grohl appears, looking over at the Mawile.)
Mawile: <Ah, greetings, you little Flaaffy. We'll see which one of us goes down first.>
Grohl: <I think it's going to be you~!>
Mawile: <Are you sure about that?>
Kim: "I believe I am. Grohl, use Thunder Wave!"
Grohl: <Will do!>
(The orb on Grohl's tail promptly glows a bright yellow, and a wave of sparks fly from it. The sparks hit the Mawile— promptly paralyzing her.)
Mawile: <Hey! Meanie!>
(Kim goes over to the table and takes some of the food from it, before sitting back down in a chair, trying her best to not draw any attention to herself. Eventually, however, she notices something shiny next to a building in the city.)
Kim: (standing up from the table and setting down her food) "What is that...?"
(She walks over and goes to pick it up— and finds that it is a Dusk Stone. Delighted by her discovery, Kim runs over to Ian, Evelyn, and Braker.)
Kim: "Ian! Evelyn! Braker! Look what I found!"
(Braker, hearing her, turns to face her, as do Walter and Cuddles. The three of them look down and take note of the Dusk Stone,)
Braker: "Is that...?"
Walter: <I believe it is.>
Cuddles: <A Dusk Stone~! YAY~! It's really shiny...>
(The Orbeetle and the Centiskorch float into the middle of the banquet.)
Orbeetle: <Oh, would you look at that. They're playing some boring music.>
Centiskorch: <I wouldn't say it's boring.>
Orbeetle: <I say it is. Like I said, the people here are cra—> (and then he notices the Dusk Stone) <BLOODY HELL IS THAT A DUSK STONE?! IS THAT A BLOODY DUSK STONE?!>
Centiskorch: <...so it is.>
Orbeetle: <Oh my god I think she's going to use it. This will be fun.>
Evelyn: A bold move from Grohl.
Hatty: <I would say.>
Me: GO FOR IT, GROHL!
Piku-chan: <You can do this! Your family'd be proud of you!>
Evelyn: Eh? What do you have there, Kim? A Dusk Stone? Where did you find it?
"Trust me, just coincidence. Didn't honestly expect to see our Benefactor here," Silas admitted.
Roxy was about to ask if the cave was allegorical or not, but opted against it.
Gio looked up from his conversation with Gale, grinned and waved, "Ah! Hello there!"
"It works out," Roxy commented, "You 3 are the guys in charge aren't you?"
A little message appeared on the Phantom Thieves site.
Everywhere I turn I keep seeing my old boyfriend, out of the corner of my eye, I have a hard time sleeping now. I just got a text from him a few days ago saying "We're not over", I've blocked him since but I can't get him out of my head.
If you can help, at all. Please!

(Bede looks down at his paralyzed mon for a few moments.)
Bede: "Oh no, we're not giving up just yet! Mawile— use Iron Head!"
(Mawile nods, before her head suddenly becomes shiny and metallic. Grohl notices— and promptly dodges out of the way.)
Mawile: (caught off-guard) <H-huh?!>
Kim: "Excellent! Now hit her with Shock Wave!"
Grohl: <Hope you're ready for this!>
(Seconds later, he becomes surrounded by light blue electricity, and he launches a wave of blue electricity directly at Mawile.)
(The Mawile is launched back a bit, but manages to get back up and shake herself off again.)
Bede: "You can still fight?"
Mawile: <I can indeed!>
Bede: "Well, then! Go on and use Crunch!"
Mawile: <Gladly!> (then, to Grohl) <Watch out!>
(She turns around, rams towards Grohl, and opens up her large mouth on the back of her head. It then comes down right onto Grohl's tail and starts spinning him around.)
Grohl: <W-whoa! WHOOOOOAAAA—!>
(The Mawile promptly lets go, and Grohl is thrown back against the wall. A cloud of smoke goes up, and when it fades, Grohl is standing there- battered and bruised, but still able to fight. He glares over at the Mawile, who snickers.)
Mawile: <Heheheheh! Too cute to fight back, I see?>
Grohl: <Oh, I'll show you...!>
Kim: "Indeed! Grohl— use Return!"
(And as soon as she hears that Mawile is taken off-guard.)
Mawile: (stunned) <RETURN?! How in the world can he use that move?!>
Grohl: (glowing in a pink energy) <Here's how! THIS IS FOR MY FAMILY, MY FRIENDS, AND MY TRAINER!>
(And he rams towards the Mawile with a powerful tackle made of love.)
(This time it's the Mawile that gets thrown back against the wall. Another cloud of smoke goes up, and when it fades, the Mawile is on her back with swirls in her eyes.)
Mawile: (weakly) <Owwww...>
(Grohl lights up and happily turns around before hugging his Trainer.)
Grohl: <Alright~! We won!>
Kim: (smiling) "We did indeed."
(And then seconds later Grohl starts to glow in a yellow energy. He pauses for a few moments and looks down at himself in disbelief. Kim, meanwhile, grins, knowing exactly what is about to happen— and Bede stares in shock.)
Bede: (stunned) "ANOTHER one?!"
Kim: "I found it lying next to one of the buildings here." (then, with a smirk) "And I have every intent of using it."
Braker: "Oh? You have a Pokemon that can evolve using a Dusk Stone?"
Cuddles: <I gotta see this~!>
Kim: (motioning for Boseman) "Indeed I do."
(Seconds later, Boseman floats forward.)
Boseman: <Ah, greetings, Kim.> (and then he notices Braker, Walter, and Cuddles) <I must ask who these mysterious person is, as well as who their Pokemon are. I do not believe I have ever seen them before.>
Kim: "You haven't. Boseman, this is Leonard Braker, and his two Pokemon. The Wobbuffet is named Walter, and the Galvantula..."
(And on cue, Cuddles jumps off of Braker's shoulder.)
Cuddles: <Hello, my name is Cuddles! Would you like a hug?>
Boseman: <A hug? I will certainly accept it.>
(Cuddles promptly glomps Boseman, who hugs him back. Seconds later, Boseman turns to face Kim.)
Boseman: <So, why have you called me here?>
Kim: "Simple." (she takes out the Dusk Stone) "I found this."
(Boseman glances at it, and promptly looks up at Kim in shock.)
Boseman: <Are you... is that...?!>
(Kim nods. Meanwhile, the rest of Kim's Pokemon notice it, too.)
Peechee: <Is that...?!>
Elton: <I think it is...!>
Ozzy: <A Dusk Stone! Of course! Kimberly can use that to evolve Boseman into a Chandelure!>
Dalt: <Oh boy oh boy oh boy this is going to be great!>
(Meanwhile, Boseman glances up at Kim.)
Boseman: <I... do not know what to say...>
Kim: (smiles) "Well? Do you think you're ready?"
(Boseman stares down at the Dusk Stone and nods— before shooting the Wakanda salute towards his Trainer. Kim returns it— and then Boseman goes over and touches the stone. Seconds later, he begins to glow in the same purple light from his first evolution.)
(From another part of the banquet, the Orbeetle and Centiskorch are watching.)
Orbeetle: <Why in the world is he glowing purple?>
Centiskorch: <I am unsure...>
Orbeetle: <Well, regardless, this should be a bloody show.> (He takes out a bag of popcorn and starts eating.) <She said his name was Boseman, right?>
Orbeetle: <As in the actor?>
Orbeetle: <Well.> (he stuffs popcorn into his mouth) <Can't wait to see the look on his face when he finds out that his namesake was upset by Hannibal Lecter.>
(A response quickly comes through.)
Evelyn and I: Grohl...
Piku-chan: <He's evolving!>
Hatty: <I bet Hoops wouldn't be all that surprised...>
Evelyn and Hatty: <Boseman's evolving! So cool.
-Beat as Evelyn and Hatty quickly realize what Pokémon Lampent evolves into and quickly cover their eyes.-
(Bede and Kim look on in disbelief and excitement, respectively, as the evolution occurs. As they watch, Grohl grows quite a bit taller, and the blue orbs on him suddenly turn a bright red, while his body turns yellow. All of his wool falls off of him, revealing a red orb on the top of his head, and his neck grows taller and gains two stripes on it. Much like Grohl's first evolution, this second one takes no more than a few seconds, and when the yellow light fades, a newly-evolved Ampharos is standing there. He looks down at his body in amazement before running up to hug Kim.)
Grohl: (happily) <ALRIGHT! I did it!>
Kim: "You certainly did, Grohl. Your parents would be very proud of you."
(Kim, her Pokemon, Braker, Walter, and Cuddles watch the evolution in awe, and Braker promptly goes to take out his video camera. None of them avert their eyes, knowing full well that Boseman would never hypnotize them. Eventually, the transformation begins.)
(The Dusk Stone's energy heads straight for Boseman and is quickly absorbed, and as before, the purple flash surrounding him becomes a purple glow of ghostly energy. That energy- and Boseman- burst into flames of purple and red that soar up into the air like a comet, spinning around for a few moments before crashing back down to Earth in front of any potential onlookers. A cloud of smoke erupts, and when it fades, more ghostly energy is standing in its place. That ghostly energy quickly takes the shape of a Chandelure sillhouette, complete with glowing yellow eyes. Soon, purple light fills the silhouette, resulting in a black-and-white Chandelure— that is very much real, and still has glowing yellow eyes. Those yellow eyes then glow more intensely, eventually releasing a huge burst of purple flame that fills the newly-evolved Chandelure with color.)
(The newly-evolved Boseman promptly floats down to the floor, in front of his Trainer, as all of Kimberly Bond's Pokemon cheer loudly for their friend. Kim smiles, and Braker stops filming and puts away his video camera. Boseman, meanwhile, looks down at his new body— and then crosses his new, flame-tipped chandelier arms and cries out:)
Boseman: <UNOVA FOREVER!>
Kim, all of her Pokemon: "<UNOVA FOREVER!>"
(And cheers go up. Cuddles looks on, utterly amazed, before jumping down off of Braker's shoulder.)
Cuddles: <Whoa...! Congratulations~! You look incredible~!>
Boseman: <Thank you, Cuddles.> (and then he notices Evelyn and Hatty) <...I must ask why Evelyn and Hatty are covering their eyes.>
Kim: "Because you're a Chandelure and they do not want to get hypnotized."
Boseman: <Oh. I see.> (he floats over to them) <You can look now. I have evolved. I will not hypnotize you.>
Evelyn: Grohl evolved!
Me: He's an Ampharos now!
Piku-chan: <Remember that Mega Ampharos we battled back in Vermilion City, Ian?>
Me: I remember. You ended up knocking it out in one hit with your Volt Tackle.
Evelyn: You actually battled a Mega Ampharos?!
Me: It's true. Lt. Surge had used it in my battle for the Thunder Badge.
Evelyn: I see... I hope his Raichu didn't give you too much trouble...
Me: If his Raichu gave me too much trouble...
-Ian shows Evelyn his Thunder Badge.-
Me: ...would I have won this?
-Evelyn giggles at Ian's response.-
-Evelyn and Hatty uncover their eyes.-
Hatty: <Well, look at you, Boseman! You evolved! Congrats!>
Evelyn: Hai. Omedetougozaimasu!note Yes. Congratulations!
(Bede grimaces, returning his Mawile. Kim, meanwhile, returns Grohl.)
Bede: "Well. I must admit... your team is very strong."
Kim: "Thank you, Bede. But... I've got an ace up my sleeve." (She takes out a PokeBall.) "And I'm not afraid to use it."
(Bede smirks and takes out a PokeBall of his own.)
Bede: "Bring it on." (he throws it) "Go, Gardevoir!"
(In a flash, the ball opens and a Gardevoir emerges from it. Kim, meanwhile, smirks, and throws her own PokeBall.)
Kim: "Red alert, Peechee!"
(The ball opens, and Peechee appears, his claw shaking and his eyes red.)
Peechee: <...I viddied you... you oobivatted Kec... AND NOW... YOU'RE ITTYING TO REGRET IT—!!>
Gardevoir: <I have no idea what you're saying, but you should be an easy match.>
(Boseman smiles, and flashes the Wakanda salute at Evelyn and Hatty.)
Evelyn: The maiden in white with eyes glowing red, whispering madness and twisting the air... Gardevoir!
Me: That's a final evolution of Ralts...
Evelyn: Right. And we have knowledge that Gardevoir was the one who took down Kec...
Piku-chan: <And Kim's using Peechee against them...>
Hatty: <And Peechee has Guillotine...>
Evelyn and I: Still, just because Peechee has Guillotine doesn't mean it's going to be easy for us...
-Evelyn and Hatty smile at Boseman and return the salute.-
Not for me anyway, it's probably been that way since long before Gamer got those airplane tickets.
-Examining Aislinn's Aura-
I think I might've read something in one of those jokes Galar calls newspapers about this woman. A threat and a funky mask if I recall correctly... But her Aura, it's similar to Daydre's, they might be related.
Of course asking them directly might be kinda awkward because if I don't want it to look wrong that'd mean having to reveal my powers...
Hmm, how familiar are you with the J-Team? Though technically since there hasn't been a major villain to fight there really isn't a J-Team right now per se.
Edited by rmctagg09 on Apr 26th 2021 at 10:16:05 AM
Kim: "Oh... an easy match, you say? Well, I have a feeling it's going to be an even easier match for us, then."
Bede: "You would think that, but nope. Gardevoir, use Magical Leaf!"
Peechee: (shocked) <SHE HAS WHAT?!>
(Gardevoir nods, before releasing a slew of multi-colored leaves directly at Peechee in an attempt to hit him. Peechee, however, is prepared, and promptly proceeds to hold up his pincers in front of him, before very quickly tearing the leaves to shreds. The Gardevoir blinks in shock.)
Gardevoir: <...wow. I was not expecting that.>
Bede: "Looks like not even Magical Leaf will work... this Kingler has a strategy planned... but we're not going to go down just yet!"
(He points ahead, but Peechee silently sneaks up behind Gardevoir without her noticing, ready to attack and holding up a silvery pincer.)
Bede: (not noticing) "Gardevoir, use Dazzling Gleam!"
(Gardevoir suddenly glows in a multicolored light and starts running towards where she thinks Peechee is— but then stops upon realizing there's no target.)
Gardevoir: <Wait, what...? Where'd he go? That Kingler was right here...>
(And then Peechee smirks from behind.)
Peechee: <Right here, Gardevoir. And you're about to be taken down by my own nozh.>
(Startled, the Gardevoir turns around and blinks in slight confusion.)
Gardevoir: (starting to panic) <"Nozh"? What do you mean, "nozh"? What in the world are you even—>
(And at that moment Peechee strikes, slamming down his silvery pincer onto the Gardevoir, causing her to fall to the ground and faint immediately.)
(Bede gapes, and looks up at Kim in complete disbelief.)
Bede: "Wha— but— h-how— i-is it always this accurate?!"
(Peechee jumps backwards, grinning maniacally. Bede, meanwhile, returns his Gardevoir.)
(Meanwhile, the Orbeetle and the Centiskorch watch in delight.)
Centiskorch: <So, he has evolved.>
Orbeetle: <Dear God, that was a bloody show.>
(And then they hear something from behind them.)
???: <Oi! 'Scuse me!>
(Both of them turn around— and notice the Shiny Joltik, who has made it to the banquet.)
Orbeetle: <Oh, look. A Shiny.>
Shiny Joltik: <That's right! 'Eard 'bout the banquet that was taking place 'ere and I decided ta join in. Thought it'd be a great place to get away from my ol' life back in Postwick.>
Orbeetle: <Well, shame you arrived so late! You missed a show! Some kid's Lampent just evolved into a Chandelure!>
Shiny Joltik: <Really?! Is that right?!>
Orbeetle: <Yeah! Oh, by the way, you're a bit shorter than I imagined.>
Shiny Joltik: <Two inches! And don't ya dare forget it!> (beat) <Speaking of, which, ya look pre'y large for an Orbee'le.>
Orbeetle: <FINALLY! Someone notices! Took them forever! Yes, I am 5 feet, thank you for asking.>
Centiskorch: <Please don't point out your height.>
Orbeetle: <Like anybody's going to not notice it! Anyway, where was I— oh, right, there's food and karaoke, don't pick something that's gonna cause my ears to bleed.>
Centiskorch: <You don't even have ears.>
Shiny Joltik: <Do you 'ave a poin'ed stick?>
Evelyn: -thinks to herself- I'd pay good money to see Kim battle Gardevoir again, but without using Guillotine...
Me: -telepathically to Evelyn- ~Yeah... I mean, seriously. Moves like that are the very reason accuracy checks exist...~
Evelyn: -to Ian- ~I agree... I mean, there must come a time when that move misses its mark, and I want to be there to see it!~
Me: -to Evelyn- ~I'll bring popcorn.~
(Bede looks up at Kim as he takes out his final PokeBall.)
Bede: "Well, I must admit... you're a very strong Trainer. You've brought me down to my final Pokemon." (he smirks) "And I'm going to go all out." (he throws the PokeBall) "Go, my beloved Hatterene!"
(The ball opens, and in a flash, a Hatterene emerges from it, staring down Peechee.)
Hatterene: <So... you have Guillotine, do you? Well... you're not going to knock me out in one hit! I'll Gigantamax and then bring you down to your knees~!>
(She laughs maniacally, but Peechee— who is fully capable of Gigantamaxing— smirks.)
Peechee: <Bring it on.>
Me: So that's a Hatterene?
-Ian checks his Pokédex.-
Pokédex: Hatterene, the Silent Pokémon and the evolved form of Hattrem. A Psychic and Fairy type. It emits psychic power strong enough to cause headaches as a deterrent to the approach of others. If you're too loud around it, you risk being torn apart by the claws on its tentacle. This Pokémon is also known as the Forest Witch.
Evelyn: Knowing Bede, this is probably the 'mon he Gigantamaxes...
Me: Because it's his last Pokémon, right?
Evelyn: Of course. However, the last Gym Leader had a different Gigantamax Pokémon.
Me: The last Gym Leader?
Evelyn: Oh. I'm sorry, I don't think I ever told you. Bede is the new Gym Leader after Opal, who had been running the gym for 70 years... She would Gigantamax her Alcremie at the end of a battle... and trust me, you wouldn't wanna mess with granny when she breaks out the wedding cake.
Me: I'm gonna pretend like I understood that last part.
Evelyn: You don't have to pretend, Ian. Here...
-Evelyn shows her Pokédex to Ian.-
Evelyn's Pokédex: Alcremie, the Cream Pokémon and the evolved form of Milcery. A Fairy type. When Alcremie is content, the cream it secretes from its hands becomes sweeter and richer. When it trusts a Trainer, it will treat them to berries it's decorated with cream. The type of cream an Alcremie's body is comprised of and its flavor are determined by time of day and direction of rotation. The nine types of cream that can comprise Alcremie's body are as follows:
Me: And I assume Alcremie's Gigantamax form is a wedding cake?
Evelyn: You assume correctly.
Piku-chan: <I have a feeling that G-Max Hatterene won't be as sweet...>
(Bede smirks, before taking out his PokeBall.)
Bede: "Well said." (he returns his Hatterene) "Alright, my glorious Hatterene— time to Gigantamax!"
(The PokeBall in his hand suddenly grows to a massive size, and he throws it into the air as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWTFMtvLGS0 plays in the background. The ball opens, and his Hatterene appears, growing larger and larger by the minute— but her form changes, too. Two teardrop-shaped markings appear on either side of her face, while the brim of her hat thins out. Her hand-like ponytail moves up to the top of her hat, and the pink bulb grows bigger, while the three "fingers" extend out, growing into tentacles.)
Gigantamax!Hatterene: <Let's see if you can take this!>
(Peechee stares up at the Gigantamax Hatterene for a few moments, before turning to face Kim. She nods, and promptly returns him, before his PokeBall grows to a massive size. She throws it in the air and Peechee emerges, and as he grows larger, his form also changes. His eyes flash a bright red as multiple foam bubbles emerge from his face, eventually forming a long white beard. His legs and arms grow far longer and gain more spikes on them, and while his right pincer grows larger, his left pincer grows even larger, both of them eventually gaining a white lower half. Inside both of the pincers, a white slice of armor grows to cover the openings, and the claws on his legs straighten out and turn orange.)
Gigantamax!Peechee: <TIME TO OOBIVAT YOU—!>
(The two towering giants stand facing each other, and the stadium audience holds its breath as to who will make the first move.)
(Braker, Walter, and Cuddles are walking around the Wild Area, eagerly looking for... not Pokemon, as one might expect, but instead a place to set up and record another one of their live news broadcasts straight from Twitch. As they are walking around, Walter turns to face Braker.)
Walter: <Well, Braker, I must say, that visit to Hammerlocke was full of incredible news stories.>
Braker: "Indeed, Walter. Between the battle in the stadium, Boseman's evolution, the karaoke matches, and the fact that Kim caught three new Pokemon... I do not believe that this day could get any better in terms of news stories."
Cuddles: (excitedly) <We need to find some place to record right away...!>
Braker: "That much is obvious, Cuddles. The question is... where are we going to find it...?"
(And then they hear rustling in the grass. Confused, all three of the Pokemon turn to face the sound, while Braker gets out his video camera.)
Braker: "What was that...?"
Walter: <I am unsure...>
(The rustling grows louder— and all of a sudden a Seviper lunges out of the tall grass, directly at the three of them. The Seviper in question has a very goofy grin on their face and a tongue lolling out of their mouth. In short, they look very happy— a direct contrast to most other members of their species.)
Seviper: (cheerfully) <Hello there!>
(The three of them stumble back a bit.)
Braker: "A Seviper?! What's it doing in the Galar region?!"
Walter: <I have no idea, but this would be the perfect time to find out. Seviper are very rare in this region, after all.>
Seviper: (slightly nervous) <Oh, sorry~! Did I scare you there? I didn't mean to; I just startle easily. It happens. So! What are your names? I don't have a name yet, but I still want to know yours.>
(And that serves as the cue for Cuddles.)
Cuddles: <Hello, random Seviper~! My name is Cuddles! It's very nice to meet you~! That's my Trainer, Leonard Braker, and his Wobbuffet, Walter~! Do you want a hug?>
Seviper: <Hugs?! I love giving hugs!>
Cuddles: <So do I~!>
(And they promptly hug each other. Walter and Braker look on in slight amusement, before Cuddles and the Seviper break up their hug. Braker, meanwhile, hands his video camera to Walter, then takes out a microphone.)
Braker: "So, Seviper, I must ask you... how did you get to Galar?"
Seviper: <Oh, that's easy! I came here from the Kalos region!>
Braker: (beat) "Of course you did."
Cuddles: <Oh! I almost forgot! Would you like a cookie, too?>
Seviper: <No thanks. I'm pretty full already.>
Cuddles: <That's okay. I get it. You're a Seviper; you've probably already gotten your fill from eating Zangoose.>
(Cuddles laughs to himself slightly, then starts to walk away. The Seviper, meanwhile, tilts their head in confusion, before saying something very surprising, given their species:)
Seviper: <You know, it's funny you should say that, because I've never even considered fighting a Zangoose.>
(And the second they say that, Cuddles' eyes go wide and bulge out of his skull, Braker grabs his video camera again, and even Walter looks stunned with disbelief.)
Braker, Walter, Cuddles: (in unison) "<WHAT?!>"

-Mason's perturbed expression is not especially hidden by the illusion he's put up.-
Mason: ...The stuff going on in my brain is private, sorry. I've already almost gotten killed because I let people know too much about me, and that's all I'm gonna say on the subject to someone I just met.
-Rogue, meanwhile, can't help but chuckle-
Rogue: Hear that's been that way for a lot of the older members, yeah? Heroes of Sinnoh, Johto, Hoenn, even before you all stuck a big J on the group.
-They catch someone out of the corner of their eye, and lean back to wave.-
Rogue: Oh, hey, Gaia! I was wondering if you were gonna pop in.
Aislinn: "Not too familiar, I'm afraid. I've seen you guys on the news a few times but my upbringing was a little.. sheltered, so I only really heard snippets of what you guys have done until rather recently. It all sounds pretty impressive though."
Blair: -pouting- <Well I can't help it! I'm not trying to pick up the stuff you're feeling. And it's not like I'm looking at your thoughts or anything. Is there really nothing I can do that would make you feel better?>
Rosie: Oh, sure, that can be arranged. We were going to ask you for your address so we can drive you home, but if you want a trip, by all means, we can arrange it. You have any destination in mind right now?
Well that wasn't us, it was the fanbase, we just appropriated it eventually. That whole J-Team mania thing happened while we were in Oblivia and we didn't even know it was a thing until we reached Almia.
Likely more distant relation then, like the Kalosian Cains, but her Aura feels close enough to Daydre's that it's probably not that distant a relation. Maybe more like a second or third cousin.
Sheltered huh? Guessing you've never been to another region like Sinnoh before, have you?
Akiko: -Just intensely stares between a Shiny Stone and an Everstone-
Cam: -To Doc, some distance away- <You know, your sister's been staring at those stones for a while.>
Doc: <Yeah, she's been thinking a lot about what path she wants to take.>

-Gale notes the arrival of her fellow team leads and gives a quick little wave-
Welcome, to Rebel Reef; home base for hopefully the next generation of costumed heroes! I'll be honest, was not expecting this little meet-up but I think you'll find that we're basically ready to get rolling on the whole Riolu Rebels project... Once we have some Rebels of course.
-Gale glances awkwardly off to the side-
You uh... You did remember to scout out more than one member of the Rebels, yeah?
Well, you did try and hypnotize me into becoming a conquering Ghost Empress so that's a bit of a faux pas but it's good to see that you're settling okay with Kamui's squad.
-Gale does a smile at both her ancestor's attendant and her girlfriend-
-As the song ends Takcorian just kinda sways standing up before silently walking off while breathing heavily-
Luperian: Oof, note to self; maybe a little less rap next time... Looks like Tak's kinda out of breath.
-That's not entirely what it looks like as Takcorian finds a shadow to sit in and curl up into a ball of dragon-
-Though yes, the dragons have ceded the karaoke zone if anyone else wants a shot-

Evelyn and Hatty: <This is it!
Piku-chan and I: <It's time for the clash of the titanic Pokémon...
Evelyn and I: This is gonna be so cool!
Emilie: A drive home? Honestly, I think that'd be kind of difficult to pull off considering I'm from Anistar City...
Gus: <It's true.>
Levy: <All the way in Kalos.>
Me: Showtime, Piku-chan!
Piku-chan: <Alright! I'll get the others!>
-Piku-chan releases an electrical spark from his body, shining a light into the air for Kim and Evelyn to see.-
(And the second that they see that the karaoke session is open...)
Braker, Cuddles, Kim: " <We call dibs~!>"
(And the three of them rush to the karaoke machine, only to realize:)
Braker: "Wait. Who should go first?"
Kim: "Should we go or should you go?"
Braker: "Well, Cuddles and I have separate songs..."
(And then Kim notices the flash of light in the air.)
Braker: (beat) "Should you go first?"
Cuddles: <She should go first.>
Kim: "We're definitely going first."
(And she runs off with Sinatra, Dio, Paul, Kaylan, and Joel in tow.)
