"Well, yes..." he trailed off. "While I do concede that I did attempt to do so, I maintain the lantern with which I attempted to do so held as much power over I as it did the museum staff. The group of thieves, with that bizarre stone, didn't know its power. I forgot myself, lost in power I wrongfully believed I had."

~Don't listen to them,~ The false voices spoke, ~They're part of the game no doubt! You're nearly there. Just listen to us, you can trust us!~

Seems Raru and Axon would need to find some way to be the decisive voices in this little argument.

Rebel Reef

Silas nodded, "We're working on it. The hard part is that those hero sites I used to get my start as the supplier known as the Jackal tend to have hard age brackets. Kids don't frequent them... We're at least finding a few."

Gio nodded, "Makes sense, places like those can be dangerous for kids. Still, the Reef isn't entirely ready yet. Gale and I were going over things to install next."

Roxy watched as the construction crews moved, "And what's this costing you?"

Gio just smiled, "The cost isn't the issue anymore, you guys more than make that back easily."

Silas rolled his eyes a bit, "We'll be getting the Rebels out here once the base is all done and up to code."

Gio nodded, "Any questions then?"

Alice: Not to worry, I already have at least one potential candidate in mind. It's simply a matter of making contact.

-She turns back to Gio, her expression more businesslike.-

Alice: I'd like to request a full copy of the construction plans and schematics for the base, if you would. I'll look over them in my own time. Beyond that, I trust Gale's discretion when it comes to supervising this project.

CW: Disturbing Themes, Violence

Yevblade - Underground Runway

It was a fashion show… a damned fashion show! Jacob was thankful he was good at hiding his emotions, though he was disgusted by the display. It wasn’t just the fur coats, there was historical precedent in ancient hunting, and even today when meats were made, everything was used for something… but that was just it.

Hacks had drilled into him the fact that the circle of life states that sometimes you live and sometimes you die, as food for something else, predation happened. This was not that, this was excess and cruelty, meant more to show off and be as wasteful as possible, all that harm caused for nothing… It was cruelty for the sake of sadism, typical for Pokefutures.

Jacob set his glass down and walked among the crowd, observing the reactions of the people there, “To think so many here approve of what’s going on,” he commented.

~Sometimes it is bystander syndrome, here, these people just profit off of it. That’s why we’re here after all.~

Jacob watched as the models strutted across stage and rubbed his left arm a bit, “I understand I have a bit of a strut slash swagger when I walk. Is it this bad?”

~What? Naaaaaaah, yours is more just a weird gait cause of your bionic, also a bit of confidence. This? This is just showing off.~

Backstage

Madie drank from her water bottle, the only issue with furs in an area like this was the heat, especially if said furs were arcanine furs. The show was going well, got the “investors” interested, she checked on Iosef, “Any trouble?”

“Nyet,” he responded, sitting in a meditative state, “My legion sees all.”

Madie smiled, “Excellent,” she said patting him on the shoulders, what was Tonio talking about anyways? This was a good investment, mass produced body guards that could be hid more easily and all controlled via one guy so no chance of them turning.

Iosef took a deep inhale and focused himself, his Legion needed to be focused, the clone technology that Pokefutures had provided was useful… it wasn’t exactly up to snuff for their Templar program but for mass producing disposable bodies… it was good.

The Legion’s artificial personas kept them hidden well, nobody would notice unless they looked closely, and here, nobody questioned it. They were all armed… and Iosef was a powerful psychic, should anyone actively try anything… well he’d be able to handle it.

He was a Templar, anyone who dared stand against him would find their bones broken before they could ever try.

Madie waved at Iosef as she readied her next set, “Alright…”

Yevblade Underground - The Stage

Jacob stared intently as the show continued, “Please tell me this is almost over.”

~Patience,~ Hacks noted, ~We just need to watch for our opportunity to strike. Grab her while she’s unguarded.~

Jacob found that hard to do as the next part began…

“Alright folks!” Madie said, stepping out, “We got through the fashion, now what you’re all really here for…”

Jacob looked up, and out rolled several storage tanks, labels on each of them… Jacob felt his stomach gain a knot as he looked over the tanks. Madie seemed so proud as she had everything wheeled out, what ran through her mind as she displayed this act of cruelty?

“We know you’ve been busy, and we here at Pokefutures always appreciate your support! So we’ve got some special deals for you today! Freshly harvested, stored safely, and ready to be discreetly transported!”

A few of the tanks opened glass panes, revealing organs in each… Jacob felt the knot grow even more… Then he saw the last tank open. It had a simple label, “Lucario”.

~Silas…~ Hacks said, the tone of his voice uneasy.

Jacob felt something snap, and then he leapt up onto the stage, hand outstretched to grip onto Madie’s throat and strangle her right then and there. The Guards turned and drew pistols and fired, Madie stumbled back and darted behind the stage. Jacob barely avoided getting hit, he looked up at the Clones.

It still didn’t feel right, he’d need to avoid trouble, the smugglers were already bolting for the door, didn’t matter for them. He had their faces in his memory now…

“Step away, I only want her,” Jacob told the Clones.

They opened fire and Jacob tucked back down behind the stage, a aura sphere came out and knocked one down, Hacks appeared, the optic-net flowing like a cape, ~Can’t reason with them, no minds, just simulacra.~

Silas grunted as he drew the CM86 from his coat, Matilda in hand, this was a big step forward. He wasn’t certain if he’d be able to live with the results… then a look at the tanks being wheeled out, and the rage returned. He got back on stage and approached the first clone, knocking it with his metal fist and then fired Matilda into both of its legs.

“That should-” The clone stood on its bleeding legs and raised the pistol, Silas drew matilda up and popped 3 rounds right into the chest, the Clone collapsed.

~Behind you!~ Silas whipped around and shot a clone in the head, he felt sick to his stomach, he didn’t like doing this… but he had no choice here.

“Got my back?”

~Always,~ Hacks commented, extending metal claws.

Silas looked over the assembling army of clones, this would be a lot of work.

Ballonlea Gym Battle

(Bede smirks.)

Bede: "Well. Your Kingler can Gigantamax, too. I must admit, you're giving me a run for my money here... but I'm not willing to give up just yet!"

G-Max!Hatterene: <Neither am I! Prepare yourself— you're about to get hit with confusion!>

Peechee: <Confusion? Not yet!>

(And then seconds later, Peechee puts up a giant Protect barrier. Hatterene, meanwhile, glows a bright pink. Seconds later, multiple giant pink stars rain down from the sky, intended for Peechee— but the Max Guard blocks the move.)

Peechee used Max Guard!

Peechee protected itself!

Bede's Hatterene used G-Max Smite!

Peechee protected itself!

(The barrier fades, and Hatterene stares in shock.)

G-Max!Hatterene: <W-WHAT?! How dare you!>

Peechee: <'Hehehehehe...>

(Kim smirks, and points ahead.)

Kim: "Alright, Peechee— go ahead and take her down! Use G-Max Foam Burst!"

Peechee: <TIME FOR YOU TO GET SNUFFED BY MY OWN NOZH!>

(And with that said, Peechee opens up his pincer, and a slew of foamy water shoots out of it, hitting Hatterene.)

Peechee used G-Max Foam Burst!

Bede's Hatterene's speed harshly fell!

G-Max!Hatterene: (livid) <Oh, you dare!>

Bede: "You lowered my Hatterene's Speed... interesting strategy, but you'd be wrong if you think I'm going down just yet! Hatterene! Hit him with a Max Mindstorm!"

G-Max!Hatterene: <I shall!>

(She opens her mouth, and large psychic rings of energy emerge from them, aimed directly at Peechee. They hit, causing a slight mini-explosion— and the battlefield to become Psychic Terrain.)

Bede's Hatterene used Max Mindstorm!

The battlefield got weird!

(Peechee eventually manages to shake off the damage, and his red eyes flash for a bit.)

Peechee: <HORRORSHOW, THAT'S IT! YOU'RE GETTING SNUFFED!>

Kim: "Alright, Peechee, let's finish this! Use Max Darkness!"

(Peechee says nothing for a few moments, merely slamming down his pincer on the ground. Seconds later, multiple dark hands shoot up from the ground, trapping Bede's Hatterene— and then Peechee cries out:)

Peechee: <OOBIVAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!>

(And the attack explodes.)

Peechee used Max Darkness!

It's super effective! A critical hit!

G-Max!Hatterene: <NOOOOOOOOOOOO—!>

(Seconds later, an explosion goes up, and Bede's Hatterene falls to the floor, shrinking back down to her original size and form. Peechee grins, before he glows red with Gigantamax energy and shrinks back down to his original size and form. Seconds later, a cloud of dust goes up from Hatterene's side, and when it fades, she is on her back with swirls in her eyes.)

Bede's Hatterene fainted!

Hatterene: (weakly) <Owww...>

(Peechee stands there for a few moments, then raises his pincer to the sky and cries out one single word:)

Peechee: <POBEDA—!>

Kim: "Great work, Peechee!"

KIMBERLY BOND HAS DEFEATED BEDE'S HATTERENE

(Bede looks down, and returns his Hatterene, before looking back up at Kim with a smirk on his face.)

Bede: "Well, you did it. You bested me, both in the quiz and in battle. Looks like your knowledge of lyrics paid off."

(He approaches Kim and holds out a badge with a stylized pink butterfly on it.)

Bede: "As proof of your victory, I would like to give you this: the Fairy Badge."

(Kim takes it and smiles.)

Kim: "Thank you, Bede."

Bede: "Oh yeah, and I need to give you this, too."

(He takes out a pink disc, which Kim looks at and pockets.)

Kim: "Draining Kiss. Well. That should be quite useful when I give it to Geddy. Thank you very much, Bede."

Bede: "Also, Circhester's the next Gym. That new Corviknight could come in handy."

Kim: "Don't worry, Bede, I definitely plan to use Ozzy. And... another member of my team. I've been meaning to give him another battle." (She turns to leave and returns Peechee.) "Farewell."

(And with that said, she exits the pitch.)

Kim: "Very well, then. This should be exciting."

Centiskorch: <You're missing out; I dare say it's a very good show.>

Shiny Joltik: <Oi! Something tells me this is going ta be tons of fun!>

The Wild Area

(Cuddles, Walter, and Braker stare in disbelief at the Seviper in front of them, who tilts their head.)

Seviper: <What?>

Braker: (shakes his head) "I... don't know if that's even possible. T-the feud between Seviper and Zangoose has lasted for generations and is completely innate."

Seviper: <Oh, I know that! In fact, that's the reason why my family hated me so much... They couldn't fathom the thought of a Seviper that actually liked Zangoose! They were supposed to be mortal enemies! So... they kicked me out.>

(Braker, Walter, and Cuddles stare at each other.)

Cuddles: <T-that's horrible...! I'm so sorry...!>

Seviper: <No, it's fine now.>

Walter: <Hang on a second. How do we know that you're not just tricking us? How do we know that you actually do like Zangoose? Is there one with you right now?>

Seviper: <Well, as a matter of fact...>

(Braker and Walter turn to face each other, and the Seviper promptly calls out:)

Seviper: <Hello~! Zangoose friend~!>

(There is an annoyed sigh, and then, a raspy, Tomboyish Voice speaks up:)

???: <WE ARE NOT FRIENDS!>

Seviper: <Don't be silly! Of course we are! Come on...>

???: (growls with annoyance) <Fine! But I'm still gonna tear you to shreds, you stupid snake!>

(There is some rustling in the grass, and a Zangoose emerges, glaring over at the Seviper- before she notices the other three.)

Zangoose: <Who are these bozos?!>

Seviper: <Oh, that's Leonard Braker and his two Pokemon, Walter and Cuddles.>

Cuddles: (waving) <Hello~!>

Zangoose: (growls) <Hey, I guess.>

Walter: <Do you have a name?>

Zangoose: <Course I do! Name's Romea- and don't even bother talking to that silly snake. They've ruined my life for years.>

Seviper: <Come on, you like me...>

Zangoose: <SHUT UP!>

(The Seviper just wraps her up and nuzzles against her, while the Zangoose groans.)

Zangoose: <DID I ASK FOR A HUG?!>

Braker: "Oh my. This will certainly make for some absolutely incredible breaking news."

Seviper: <That's amazing! You guys seem pretty nice...>

(Romea sighs.)

Romea: <I swear to Arceus, if you ask him if he wants to catch you...>

(And then the Seviper's eyes light up.)

Seviper: <Wait a second! Can I join your team?>

(Romea facepalms.)

Romea: <You just had to say it...>

Braker: "Well... I do feel as though I could benefit from another Pokemon besides the two I already have... Of course you can join."

Seviper: (happily) <YAY-! Thank you so much! We're going to be great friends!> (then, a pause— they turn to face Romea) <Hey, I know! Maybe you should come, too!>

Romea: (disgusted) <W-WHAT?! No. I am absolutely not coming with some loser newscaster and his two bozo Pokemon. Especially not if you're coming along.>

Seviper: (confused) <Why not? Don't you want to get some friends?>

Romea: <I already told you. I fight alone. I could take down all the Pokemon in this area, especially you, and I definitely shouldn't go along with some crazy Trainer.>

(She turns to leave, and then all of a sudden—)

Cuddles: (jumping down from Braker's shoulder) <W-wait! No! D-don't go...!>

(Romea turns.)

Romea: <What do you want?!>

Cuddles: <I forgot to ask you if you wanted a hug! Or a cookie!>

Romea: <...I don't do hugs, kid. Thanks for asking.>

Cuddles: <O-okay. Well... do you at least want a cookie?>

Romea: <I'm not hungry.> (then, after a pause, she turns to the Seviper, and begrudingly) <You have fun.>

(With that said, she goes off, and the Seviper turns to face Braker.)

Seviper: <Okay, looks like Romea's not coming... but I get to have a Trainer~! This is so much fun~!>

Braker: (taking out a PokeBall.) "Oh, it will be."

Seviper: <What do you think you're going to name me?>

Braker: (pauses, then) "The Zangoose's name was Romea, correct?"

Seviper: <Yes. Why?>

Braker: "...I got it. You're Jules."

(The Seviper squeals with glee, and Braker throws the PokeBall into the air. In an instant, the newly-christened Jules goes inside the ball, which lands on the ground. It shakes three times, signifying capture.)

Cuddles: (happily) <ALRIGHT~! A new friend!>

Walter: <Yes, this will surely be interesting to show Kim. And Ian and Evelyn, for that matter.>

Braker: "Yes, it will. And now..."

(He takes out his Pokedex, and scans the ball. In an instant, some information comes up:)

NATURE: NAIVE

ABILITY: SHED SKIN

Jane and Tommy finish their meal. As befits the nature of the banquet, they found it delicious, though Tommy was rather finicky and had to look for very specific dishes. They sit around, discussing something indistinct, and writing things on what appear to be notepads.

Jane: This is gonna be much harder to cover than I thought. Think we can ask the local office if anyone's around?

Tommy: What do you mean? We've covered bigger events than this.

Jane: Yes, but they were one page articles or covered a span of multiple days.

Tommy: Your dad asked something, eh?

Jane: The higher ups apparently want something a bit more thorough when they caught wind of this.

Tommy: J-Team mania?

Jane: ...yeah. Think of it this way, at least he's not badgering either of us to implicate someone on some ridiculous crime that was exhausting to even stop.

Tommy: Totally. I'm starting to see why the Aurabolts and the J-Team work in groups.

Meanwhile, Star receives a message on her phone asking her to look for Hank Harvey's daughter. Apparently, the higher ups want something more from this banquet that can be covered by one (or two) people.

Bede: -sigh- I was trying to help them with their problem, mind you, but they were unwilling to cooperate. Never mind... Let's get on with the challenge. You know how it goes, it's a quick quiz. Answer the questions right and you get some bonuses for the gym battle.

Evelyn and I: Challenge accepted!

Bede: Very well. Let us begin.

CHALLENGE: START!

Bede: You two know what you’ve gotten yourselves into when you signed up for this.

QUESTION 1

Bede: This one should be easy for you... What are the weaknesses of the Fairy Type?

Evelyn: That shouldn't be too hard! Poison...

Me: ...and Steel!

CORRECT!

Bede: That one was too easy for you. Maybe this one is more your style...

QUESTION 2

Bede: What types of Pokémon are Fairy-types strong against?

Evelyn: That's easy. There's Fighting...

Me: Dark...

Evelyn and I: ...and Dragon.

CORRECT!

Bond or Break

There was a sigh, then the voice of Denali came in, "You know this trick never seems to work. Ah well was worth a shot anyways!"

The lights went out, and came back on, the stage was normal, Evelyn, Ian, and Kim standing on it. Denali smirking as their carbink cohorts brought out the stones and key rings.

"Well, what did you think of the games?" Denali asked, sounding pleased with themselves.

Bond or Break

Me: Honestly, I had a lot of fun!

Evelyn: So have I.

-Evelyn bows with respect to Denali.- Gēmu de arigatōgozaimasu.

Raru: <And you even used the right particle, unlike I did a couple years back.>

Axon: <A couple years back? What happened then?>

Raru: <I'm glad you asked, Axon... but I'd much rather hear about the time you sucked helium...>

Axon: -almost embarrassed- <I'm... reticent to tell you, honestly...>

Bede: This next one is a two-fer...

QUESTION 3

Bede: Before I became Gym Leader, what type did I originally specialize in and who sponsored me?

Evelyn: Psychic types, and Chairman Rose.

CORRECT!

Bede: B-But how would you know that?

Evelyn: You'd be surprised what I can learn from my father... When he isn't working his white-collar job for Macro Cosmos, he's following the Gym Challenge like crazy! Also, if you couldn't tell, I specialize in Psychic types my own self.

Bede: Very well...

QUESTION 4

Bede: Are you paying too much for bike insurance?

Me: I wouldn't know, I don't have a bike.

Evelyn: Neither do I.

CORRECT!

Hammerlocke Banquet, Backstage

Evelyn: Kaylan can situate himself at the drums, Dio gets the bass guitar and Raru gets the keytar. They can play the first instance of the melody while Kaylan drums out the beat.

Me: And then, once they're done with that part, the spotlight will be on you, Evelyn. You get to walk down to the stage like a bride of magic and shadow with hot pink hair.

Evelyn: Can Kako and Mirai follow behind me?

Me: As though you were walking down the aisle? I don't see why not.

Evelyn: Then once the lights cut out, Kako and Mirai will move away quickly, so when they come back on, I'll be standing alone.

-Ian takes a white half-mask out of his bag.-

Me: And then, I shall appear right by your side.

Piku-chan: <As for some of the other Pokémon, we can cover the choir in the background.>

Oshawittle: <I assume that the choir will be for any 'mon who wants to join.>

Me: You assume correctly, Oshawittle.

Evelyn: Any questions before we get changed and go out there?

Bede: I didn't think you'd be able to get that one... So, here's another one for you!

QUESTION 5

Bede: How many Pokémon can dance on the head of a pin?

Me: That depends... How many Pokémon can use Minimize?

Bede: Uh-wha...?

Me: If a Pokémon knows Minimize, it can shrink down to a point where it CAN dance on the head of a pin.

Bede: Ehh...

Evelyn: Where do you come up with these answers?

-Ian lightly raps the side of his head with his knuckles and winks, sticking his tongue out.-

CORRECT!

Bede: Impressive! Now, this one should be rather tricky. It's related to a video game I'm sure one of you is familiar with.

QUESTION 6

Bede: In the span of the [MOTHER] trilogy, the levels of PSI powers have been represented by [Greek] letters. Name each and all the PSI power levels.

Me: That should be easy...

Evelyn: Go for it, Ian!

Me: There's alpha (α), beta (ß), gamma (γ), pi (π), sigma (Σ) and omega (Ω).

CORRECT!

Me: Alright, then. Let's get changed.

Evelyn: Also, I just wanna say that I don't exactly feel comfortable changing my clothes around others, so when it's my turn to get changed, I would like it if you all looked away...

Me: Very well... I won't look. Promise.
