Kim: "Axon and Yuki? That is interesting... can't wait to see how this turns out."
(Kim promptly arrives in the Metaverse, having already changed into her Consultant outfit. She looks around for a few moments, a bit nervous— then notices Joybringer.)
The Consultant: "Oh, thank god..."
(She runs towards him.)
The Consultant: "Do you have any idea where Rakash is?! O-or where the enemy is?"
Kim: "Well, I enjoyed the BOB game so much that I figured we'd play an impromptu version here. With the rest of my Pokemon, of course."
(And on cue, the nine mons that were in the game immediately emerge.)
Elton: <ANOTHER Bond or Break game...?! This will be so much fun!>
Geddy: <Seems like it.>
Dio: <AWWWWW YEAH! I CAN'T WAIT-!>
RP: Oh... you don't know, do you...? Hikari changed her name to Kamui to avoid confusion with the Sun God.
Evelyn: We'll take the first move, Bede! Axon, use Calm Mind!
Me: Yuki, use Shadow Ball!
-Axon nods before assuming lotus position and closing his eyes, calming himself for the ensuing battle. Yuki summons an orb of spiritual energy and launches it at Bede's Galarian Rapidash.-
Bede: Rapidash, use Psycho Cut to stop that Shadow Ball! Mawile, drop Axon's guard with Crunch!
-Bede's Rapidash's horn glows with immense psychic energy before swinging it at the Shadow Ball, slicing it clean in two. Mawile readies her iron jaws and charges at Axon, ready to bite down on him.-
Evelyn: I'm onto you, Mawile! Axon, Teleport and follow up with Laser Focus!
-Axon opens his left eye, which shimmers with a faint light, before disappearing suddenly to avoid the sting of Mawile's daggerlike fangs.-
-Axon then reappears behind Mawile and focuses on them and a thin red beam of light forms between Axon and Bede's Mawile, cementing the accuracy of his next attack.-
Me: Yuki, use Ice Beam!
-Yuki fires a blue beam of subzero energy at Bede's Rapidash.-
Me: Sounds like fun!
Evelyn: Shall we get started?
Joybringer: Honestly, Consultant... I don't think Rakash is here. We're probably early. I'm just looking for someone else who's in on this mission.
(Kim raises an eyebrow.)
Kim: "Laser Focus? Interesting strategy... I can't wait to see how this turns out."
RP: Well, you know.
ZL: Sso, PK... who are the Sstoutland, Galvantula, and Ssamurott my friendss were talking about?
(With that said, Kim promptly sends out Orwell, Joel, Dave, Dalt, Peechee, Gallag, Gilmour, Jagger, and Strummer— all of whom look suitably delighted about the prospect of playing Bond or Break. She turns to face them.)
Kim: "Alright, get yourselves into the trees. We have a game to play."
(They eagerly do so, and hide in the trees until they are completely hidden from view. Sinatra, meanwhile, turns to face Kim.)
Sinatra: <This is good and all, but there's still one big question... how the heck is this whole "voice distortion" thingy going to work?>
Kim: "Hm... that is a good question indeed." (She turns to face Ian and Evelyn.) "Do you two have any ideas?"
The Consultant: "Ah. I see." (She blinks.) "Now... where do you think the enemy is?"

Hyde: ...And that's how I made a Porygon.
...That's quite impressive, and by yourself, you said? Well if one day you decide you want to do something new the PEFE's hiring.
Sinnoh again, back to the grind.
Daze is here, cracking various joints.
"Oh, hey T- Kingfish. You doing okay after uh... last time?"
"Sinnoh? Can't say I have. I've never been outside this region, no. I'd like to someday though. I've got some work to take care of here, but maybe it'll let up enough for me to go eventually."

Well if she knows about her other family she's certainly not keen on sharing with a stranger.
I've got family in quite a few places, including Galar, and I like exploring, so I'd definitely encourage you to once you get the chance.
Wasn't great, but not the first time I've dealt with stuff like that, like a certain psychic wanting my girlfriend to himself and doing mindgames while calling me and also simultaneously turning out to have a murderous race fetish for me that's particula.
Or growing up in regions where I could count the amount of other Black people I saw who I wasn't related to on one hand. You doing okay?
-The beam of subzero energy strikes Bede's Rapidash.-
Bede: Rapidash! Use Smart Strike! Mawile, use Crunch!
Evelyn and I: You've got 'em where we want 'em! Use Shadow Ball!
-Bede's Galarian Rapidash's horn shines with a metallic sheen as she charges headlong at Yuki, who fires an orb of spiritual energy at the Unique Horn Pokémon. Mawile opens her steely jaws to try and clamp down on Axon, only to have a Shadow Ball shove into the mouth, which snaps shut before it catches Axon. Both Shadow Balls explode, knocking Bede's Rapidash backwards and Mawile forwards into a faceplant.-
Joybringer: Then again, I'd assume they're meeting in Mementos. Let's go, Consultant.
-Joybringer runs off to Mementos to try and meet up with the other Thieves.-
Evelyn: Voice-distortion? It's gonna be difficult to think of any ideas...
-Ian then raises his finger as he comes up with an idea.-
Evelyn: ...that don't involve Hypnosis.
-Ian lowers his finger almost dejectedly.-
Somewhere, Alyesha was doing stretches alongside Krasnaya, the former currently wearing a bright prange helmet alongside a dark-blue jacket (with integrated repel and, more visible to onlookers, about 20 pockets, most of said pockets being filled) alongside some similarily coloured cargo pants and a pair of bright orange gloves and thick boots. Lastly, she was currently carrying a rather large backpack, the getup being quite clearly intended for a rather long climbing tour.
Kim: "They're going to faint, aren't they?"
The Consultant: "Indeed we should."
(She promptly runs off to Mementos.)
Kim: "Wait, why couldn't we just use Hypnosis? Is that too obvious?"
Sinatra: <Pretty sure it is.>
Kaylan: <Wait a second, Evelyn... do you have a voice distortion spell?>
RP: ...oh. Right... you've never met him before, have you? His name is 9-Volt. He is a good floofy fren.
FS: yay~~ floof fren~
RP: Of course, Shunner and Barrett are good too.
PI: Shunner? Barrett? I thought their names were Helmsman and Julius.

-Luperian does a little whoop as Ian does a mic check-
Luperian: Play Freebird!
-Luperian intended it to just be a little lighthearted heckling, but your mileage may vary on how well it's received-
Mmmmmm I guess... I'm quite the powerhouse though. I was holding back in the museum.
-Gale gives a brief wink of confidence before humming-
But whatever. My power level aside, looks like you've settled in fine so that's good. Anything else you wanna talk about or..?
-A Navigator has arrived-
-By which I mean Rakash. He's here in his usual scraggly formalwear and rabbit mask-
Alright folks. Looks like a bunch of us had the same idea of checking out the client haven't we?
-He pops a little smile-
Something about mountains makes Pal feel happy and being honest with yourself Pal being happy makes you happy too. Of course, getting out and climbing things was also part of the fun of exploring and thus this was a pretty dang good time for you, who I shall clarify is Emer. You're heading along the mountainous area when you spot a fellow traveler and their Pokemon doing stretches and decide to approach to say hi.
"Hi!" you say, exactly as promised. You smile broadly though you try to not draw attention to the nature of your teeth.
Star: Yeah, he made champion, even.
-she pauses a bit, unsure if she should bring up that she's technically J-Team-
Star: ...Anyway, I think we should get going.
-someone wearing a black sweatshirt and sweatpants and a domino mask shows up not far from where Joybringer and Consultant are headed-

"Aside from the apology, no. But, thank you for listening." Katsuragi gave a courteous bow and stepped away, returning to where the trio of trainers Absent controlled sat.
Well, one of them wasn't sitting there, more invested in being a bit of jokester alongside the dragon he competed against just before.
He pointed at the stage and an illusory double of himself locked eyes with the heckler and flipped him off. "Here's your Free Bird!"
He chuckled and sighed as the fake Colton faded into black smoke. "Just messin' with ya; well-fought match earlier!"

Upon noticing Emer coming over, Alyesha stopped doing stretches, instead waving slightly while smiling.
Alyesha: "Oh hi there~"
She exclaimed, so far not really noticing the pecurilarity of Emer's teeth
Alyesha: "You wanting to climb as well?"
Meanwhile Krasnaya was running over to Emer, looking up to them through her skull helmet curiously.
"Hm. I'm s'posed to have family in other places too, but I've never actually heard from them at all. Only reason I know they exist is my mom mentioning them a couple times. But I figure if there's been no contact then I don't need to bother changing that."
"But yeah, exploring. I've been all over this region now at this point, so it'd be neat to see somewhere new."
The mask hides some of it but Daze definitely just winced a little there.
"Damn man, I'm sorry that had to happen to you. That just sounds.. really shitty. I'm fine. (Though I have to say hearing regular aggression after a lifetime of mostly microaggressions was.. interesting) She seemed more focused on you, though, so I'm more worried about you."
-Ian hears Luperian's light-hearted heckling and chuckles.-
Me: Very funny, you two. Now... before my friends and I start out performance, there's something I've been meaning to say for a while now...
-Ian clears his throat before he starts speaking.-
Me: My name is Ian Pollyanna Salberg. I am a member of a band called "New Dawn's Dreamers". Last year, as you probably already know, Meloetta had announced this Battle of the Bands as a means of allowing people to band together, make music and enjoy themselves, and that she sent eight golden tickets to eight separate bands, four of which are J-Team affiliated. My friend, Kimberly Bond, picked up one of these tickets and invited me and some of my friends to join a band for this. I thought this would be a great opportunity to get to play music and make new friends, so I pretty much Jumped at the Call. However, you probably already know what happened to Hard Candy, Apocaklipz and the Church Choir and that they bowed out of the battle of the bands. That news was as shocking to me as it probably was to any of you who heard about it. When I came up with the name "New Dawn's Dreamers", in my mind, I made a promise to those bands... A promise that I and my friends would play for those who couldn't participate with all our hearts, and that we'd give them closure for the incidents by catching those responsible red-handed...
-Ian bows his head in shame.-
Me: In recent months, I feel as though I haven't been living up to that promise... That I had been letting them, my friends, Meloetta and myself down...
-Ian looks back to the audience.-
Me: But I'm not. As long as I have my friends beside me... as long as music travels on the air... I won't ever give up!
-Ian determinedly points his index finger to the sky.-
Me: If music be the food of love, play on!
-He then brings his hand down and sighs comfortably.-
Me: And now... I think it's time we make good on our promise... HIT IT!
Bede: Impressive! Now, Mawile! Get up on Rapidash's back!
-Bede's Mawile recovers from the explosion of Axon's Shadow Ball. I'd make a joke about the aftertaste, but the big jaws on the back of Mawile's head can't taste anything. Mawile then jumps up onto the reeling Galarian Rapidash's back and gets ready for their next attack.-
Bede: All right! Now, Mawile, use Iron Head! And Rapidash, use Drill Run!
-Bede's Mawile prepares her other mouth, which glows with a metallic sheen as she holds on to the Galarian Rapidash, who then goes into a full gallop* "Gallop" is Rapidash's Japanese name. and charges at Axon and Yuki before leaping into the air and spinning her body in a rapid spree of barrel rolls with her horn pointed at her opponents and uses the momentum of the gallop to carry herself and Mawile on a collision course towards Axon and Yuki.-
Me: Yuki, quick! Use Ice Beam!
Evelyn: Axon, use Shadow Ball!
-Yuki fires a blue beam of subzero energy at the dual Pokémon combo drill attack thingy while Axon launches a ball of shadowy energy at the same target. The Ice Beam freezes the combination attack solid but does not stop it from spinning and the now-frozen Pokémon drill collides with Yuki and Axon as the Shadow Ball explodes.-
Evelyn: I'll check my books.
-Evelyn opens her spellbook and flips through the pages in search of what Kaylan is asking for.-
So at least somewhat knowledgeable of their family then.
Folks like Lambrakis are a dime a dozen even if a lot of what she said did hit close to home, it's just that their Shadows don't bother hiding who they really are.
(Kim promptly starts playing the pipe organ, and the opening notes of "Phantom of the Opera" start to blare. The rest of Kim's mons, meanwhile, have all been turned into humans already, and are on their respective instruments, save for Kaylan, who is still a Grotle and on the drums.)
Kim: (grimaces) "Well. That has to hurt. I hope they'll be okay."
Kaylan: <Find anything?>
ZL: They can do WHAT?! That iss sso cool!
FS: that sounds awesome~~
TA: That is Certainly an interesting development.
(Braker is just about to say something— and then he hears it.)
???: <Hello? HELLO?! I NEED A LITTLE HELP OVER HERE!>
Walter: <What was that...?>
Cuddles: <It sounds like somebody's in trouble! We should go and help them!>
(And then he hears a gasp from his PokeBall— Jules.)
Jules: (from inside his PokeBall) <Romea!>
(They suddenly emerge, extremely concerned.)
Jules: <Hang on, Romea! I'm coming!>
Braker: "Are you sure it's her?"
Jules: <I know it's her, Braker! I could hear her voice coming from a mile away! Now let's get ourselves goin'! We have a friend to save~!>
(And with that said, they slither away. Braker, Walter, and Cuddles all look at each other, before running over to follow them. As they do so, Braker sends off one final text:)
PI: One moment.
(Romea is dangling over the edge of a cliff in the Wild Area, and while she looks to be in trouble— the rocks are breaking— she has a determined expression on her face nonetheless, and is struggling to hang on. Eventually, Walter, Cuddles, Jules, and Braker arrive near her— and they happen to notice.)
Jules: <Oh dear. This isn't good.>
Walter: <It does not appear to be.>
Cuddles: <W-what if she dies?! W-we can't let that happen!>
Braker: "Indeed, we can not."
(He looks up, and suddenly notices a tree branch, before turning to Jules.)
Braker: "Jules? I want you to wrap yourself around that tree and swing yourself towards her if she falls."
Jules: <You got it!>
(They do exactly that, staying out of sight. Braker, meanwhile, turns to face his other Pokemon.)
Braker: "As for us... we'll go try and save her."
(Walter and Cuddles nod, and the three of them go over to Romea, who is still struggling. As soon as she sees them, she growls.)
Romea: <What are you three dweebs doing here?!>
Cuddles: <We heard your cries for help and want to try and save you~!>
Romea: <Save... me? Hah! I don't think...> (she starts slipping further) <I really need... any saving...>
Cuddles: <Well, you look like you do. You asked for help.> (He shoots out an electrical strand.) <Here! Grab on to this!>
(Romea blinks for a few moments, then extends out her claw in a desperate yet determined attempt to grab on to the strand of electricity. As she does so, however, the cliff starts to break off, causing Cuddles— and in the tree, Jules'— eyes to go wide.)
Romea: (really struggling now) <Ugh...! It's fine, you idiot... I can handle—>
(And then the rock breaks, and Romea starts falling down towards the ocean.)
Romea: (falling) <THIIIIIIIIS...!>
Jules: (from the tree) <Romea! I'm comin'!>
(And with that said, they wrap themselves around the tree and swing towards Romea, before extending out their entire body into a straight line and grabbing Romea gently in their fangs, with only their tail tip remaining on the land.)
(Romea pauses for a few moments, then looks up and sees Jules grabbing on to her. Cuddles, meanwhile, shoots an electric strand out from his pedipalps before pulling the two of them back onto dry land. Jules eventually lets go of Romea, and Walter and Braker run towards her.)
Braker: "Are you alright?!"
Walter: <Thank goodness you're okay. You could have been killed...>
Romea: (slightly shocked) <You guys... saved my life?>
Cuddles: <Of course we did! Why wouldn't we?>
(She turns to face Jules, who grins with delight and licks her.)
Jules: <Thank goodness! I'm so happy you're alright!>
Romea: (looks over at Walter, Braker, and Cuddles) <Huh. You guys aren't half-bad, actually.>
Cuddles: <YAY~! Thank you!>
Romea: (immediately moving out of the way) <YOU!> (She growls.) <H-how DARE you save my life! We're supposed to be ENEMIES! Hate me! Fear me! Why did you rescue me?!>
Jules: <Because it's the right thing to do, silly! You're my friend!>
Romea: <I AM NOT YOUR FRIEND! WHY WOULD I EVER BE YOUR FRIEND?!>
Jules: <If you're not my friend, why did you come all this way to Galar with me?>
Romea: (getting defensive) <Because— well— I— n-never mind!> (she scoffs and turns away) <Look, just because your friends helped save my life, I'll join you and your dumb team.>
Cuddles: <You will?! YAY~!>
(He immediately runs over to hug her, and Romea smirks for a few moments before turning back to face Jules, with a growl.)
Romea: <But don't think this means I'll consider you my friend. You are not my friend, and you never will be. We are mortal enemies; you got that?!>
Jules: (cheerfully) <Mmmm-hm!>
(Romea sighs, and facepalms, before eventually turning back to face Braker.)
Romea: (somewhat begrudgingly) "Alright. I guess you can go ahead and catch me."
Braker: (taking out a PokeBall) "I'm already ahead of you."
(And he throws it. Romea is sucked inside in an instant, and the ball falls down to the floor, shaking three times before... you get the idea. Braker smiles and picks it up, before taking out his Pokedex and scanning it. Information soon comes up:)
CHARACTERISTIC: QUICK TEMPERED
MOVESET: SLASH, REVENGE, CRUSH CLAW, HONE CLAWS, FALSE SWIPE
Braker: "Well. That is an interesting moveset, to say the least."
(He goes to put the Pokedex away, only to hear a ping noise and see the message appearing:)
HASSLEMON HANDLE DECIDED
(Braker smiles at this, puts away the Pokedex, and takes out his phone:)
PI: Sorry about that. I just caught another Pokemon.
RP: You're kidding.
ZL: Yeah! It'ss my Zzangoosse friend that I told you about!
( raucousMongoose entered the chat.)

The Pen gave a thumbs up and conjured a perception screen for Gale to look through, see what it was seeing as it followed after the Medicham.
The Medicham stepped over the balcony and looked down below, Arthur talking with the Gigalith Princess who seemed rather impressed... not by the fact that there was a large man in green armor, more by his build and how he did not seem to resemble any mon she had seen before.
The Medicham pulled out something, it was a odd tool, and when they pressed a button it glowed and began to hum.
"Got it," Bishop said, "And I got the info for our client, his excellency."
He zipped the info, "We'll review this on the Wing proper. But I think I found something important, a planet named Polity, it may hold secrets of the Rebellion we don't know."
He looked to Phineas, "Shall we inform our friends outside it is time to get moving?"
Upon Rakash and the Lycanroc fellow, Jackal waved, "Excellent. Navigator is here."
Then Daze and Kingfish, Jackal stepped over, "Good to have you on board. So, I suppose we look for the Client's palace and perform our investigation there?" he asked.
"You said something about experience with facing potential enemy personas users before," he continued, "Do you have any advice for facing them?"
-Gale took a deep breath as she walked out into the main hall with the completed stew. It wasn't going to be her masterpiece work, but she did a lot to make it worthy of a literal royal occasion. Between wanting to keep the soup from sloshing and the second screen of perception, there was a lot of simmering stress under the surface-
If that's a bomb, we're going to need the nearest safe disp—... Would the stew and pot do enough to null the force of the blast?
Luperian: Oh damn, little proxy revenge motive. Cute. Gotta say, work's cut out ahead of him if he wants to take down who's properly responsible...
-Takcorian has finished sitting alone and has wandered back over to take a seat next to their sibling-
Luperian: And lo, the opening bars of a Broadway smash bring my brother back to me.
Takcorian: Don't feel up to 'brother' right now...
Luperian: Alright, sib.
"Yeah! Just sorta saw the cliffs and was like 'you see that mountain? you can climb it' and... Yep! Here I am!" you reply, gaze flicking between the fellow human adventure fan and their adorable little Cubone! You carefully lower yourself a bit to hold a more respectful eye level with the skull-bearer and give another smile.
"Your little buddy's nice. Is that a momma skull they've got or something else? Wait hold on, Cubone's foreign aren't they— well unless you count the isles... Where are you from?"
The helioptile gestured to his retinue. He seems pleased. He nodded patiently at the cooperative guards.
Machoke Majordomo: <His Excellency is pleased with your cooperation, my friends. You have served the Federation well. You have the gratitude of the Peoplemons of Great Heliopotalia. Dismissed.>
And with that, they returned the inspected files and bowed with a flourish.
The Wing receives a transmission from Basiliscia. The image shows a machoke in flamboyant clothing beside a helioptile in a princely outfit.
The Real Count Abarata: <My friends from another world. On behalf of our people, especially of the lives you have saved, you have our everlasting gratitude. I'm still genuinely shocked that we were able to find you. We were desperate to get in contact for a Federation-sanctioned body double for several weeks now..>
The Real Majordomo: <Aye, sire. I found it fortunate that the Federation officials assigned us to an actual helioptile who looks just like you. >
Shutter: <Think nothing of it, Your Excellency.>
Abarata: <I'm surprised you were able to sound convincing, though. Since you contacted us, we barely had time to properly acculturate you to our protocol.>
Majordomo: <Indeed. How did you manage to pull it off?>
Ba'al: <Don't worry about it. We had our ways.>
Abarata: <May this knowledge help you in your quest. We are happy to have come to your assistance as you have come to ours.>
Jane: Oh, he beat Leon?
Tommy: Awesome, right.
Jane: That's no easy feat. Leon could wipe the floor with other trainers
Tommy: You heard of him taking on that one burly supervillain trying to steal his Charizard? Curb-stomped!
Jane: I guess we should as well. Anyway, uh Mrs. Petersen—
Jane: —Gimbal, that is, will be sending you our contact details. We'll keep in touch. Sorry for boring you with small talk. Do keep in touch. Tom and I love working with people from other branches.
Fred looked at Star with a mischievous, skeptical expression.
Fred: ~Are you sure about that?~
Jane rather obviously tries to nudge at Fred.
Jane: Fred, don't eavesdrop! Sorry, he's usually much more well behaved.
Fred: ~That is a lie.~
Several minutes later, Jane and Tommy spot a pair of very familiar people.
Jane: Oh, Gaia's here? Oh, Arceus this is totally awesome. See, Tom, that's what a real superhero looks like.
Jane: We should totally meet them. She's like my favorite superhero.
Tommy, under his breath: I thought I was your favorite superhero.
Jane: Oh, you know what I mean.
Tommy: <whimpering jealously noises>
Jane: Did I mention you make the cutest jealousy noises?
"But er, enough about me. Do you know what your other-region family's like?"
Daze gives Kingfish a thumbs-up.
"Hm.. My memory's a little hazy about last time and I don't know if the 'rules' changing would change how we need to go about this."
-Ian turns around and disappears backstage.-
-As Kim plays the pipe organ, the stage lighting flashes. Opposite Dio, who is on the bass guitar, stands Raru, playing the melody on his keytar. The two of them play their part with a beautiful harmony. As the melody is completed the first time, Evelyn begins walking slowly downstage, her gown, black as night, gliding gently over the stage like a ghost. Walking close behind her, like a bride's trainbearers, are the Kirlia Twins. Behind Evelyn and to the left is Kako, while to the right is Mirai. Their steps are slow and careful so as not to trip over their own feet and smash face-first into the stage. Evelyn walks downstage majestically, like a bride of magic and shadow until she reaches the main stage and the lights cut out for a moment.-
-When the lights come back on, Evelyn is standing alone on the stage. She looks around, and Kako and Mirai, as they had planned, weren't there. In the moment the lights cut out, Kako and Mirai moved quickly offstage and were watching the performance unfold. Evelyn takes a microphone into her hands and begins to sing in a voice pure as the driven snow as the spotlight shone down on her.-
Evelyn: ♪In sleep he sang to me...♪ ♪In dreams he came...♪ ♫That voice which calls to me...♪ ♫And speaks my name...♪ ♪And do I dream again?♫ ♪For now I find...♫ ♪The Phaaaaaantom of Opera is here...♫ ♫Inside my mind...♪
-Evelyn puts the hand that's not on the microphone against her cheek. As Evelyn sang, Ian had been sneaking up on her, dressed in black with a mask of white covering the right side of his face. He sang in response to Evelyn as though to make his presence known to her.-
Me: ♪Sing once again with me... our strange duet...♪
-Evelyn jumps slightly and turns around to see the phantom-dressed Ian standing right behind her. Ian bows slightly to Evelyn as she pulls back slightly.-
Me: ♫My power over you grows stronger yet...♫
-Evelyn's eyelids lower to a half-opened state, as though she was hypnotized by Ian. The two of them know it's all in good fun and continue their performance.-
Me: ♪And though you turn from me to glance behind...♫
-Ian and Evelyn pass each other and then look behind themselves. In that moment, Ian swiftly grabs Evelyn's hand.-
Me: ♪The Phaaaaaantom of Opera is there...♫ ♫Inside your mind...♪
-The two of them spin around for a while as the music continues to play.-
-The dust from the collision settles, revealing that Bede's Galarian Rapidash is on the ground, unconscious, as well as Yuki reeling from the Iron Head's impact, though it wasn't as painful as she had feared it would be.-
Referee: Rapidash is unable to battle!
-Bede calls his Galarian Rapidash back to her Poké Ball.-
Me: Yuki-sama! Daijobudesuka?* Yuki! Are you okay?
Yuki: <Hai. Daijobu. Omotta hodo itaku wa arimasendeshita.>* Yes. I am okay. It didn't hurt as much as I thought.
Me: Īdesu yo.* OK.
Evelyn: Axon, watch out for Mawile's Crunch!
Me: Yuki, you watch out, too! Dark type moves hurt Ghost types as much as they hurt Psychic types!
Yuki: Keikoku de arigatōgozaimasu.* Thanks for the warning!
Bede: Now, Mawile! Use Play Rough!
Evelyn: Axon, use Psychic!
-Mawile throws themselves at Yuki and Axon, however Axon's eyes glow a preternatural gold as he unleashes powerful waves of psychic energy on the Mawile, suspending it in midair. Yuki fires another subzero energy beam at Mawile. Axon then slams Mawile into the ground, knocking her unconscious.-
Referee: Mawile is unable to battle!
-Bede calls Mawile back to her Poké Ball.-
Evelyn: Not yet.
-Evelyn continues to flip through her book.-
-Joybringer runs up to the group of Phantom Thieves already gathered.-
Joybringer: Sorry I'm late. Traffic was a nightmare on Elm Street.

Hmm, well. My parents are from the [West Indies], so I have lots of family on both sides in Galar, though I think I only met one of my maternal Galarian relatives once at a family reunion when I was 8. And one of my uncles constantly blows up the family chat, but I don't really talk to them that much.
My dad went to Galar when he was 16 once when it was even more rainy than usual.
I wasn't involved directly like Rakash and Daze were Apart from my brief April Fools stint as a Velvet Room attendant, but I doubt this guy is as strong as that guy was. It shouldn't be that different from fighting Shadows and demons like we've already been doing.
Edited by rmctagg09 on May 2nd 2021 at 11:56:57 AM
Star: Right. Glad I got to meet people from the Galar branch, and now the Unova branch, too.
-Star starts sweating a bit at Fred's comment-
Star: Y-yeah, ok. See you later.
-Star arrives where everyone is meeting up-
Star: I'm here! Hi. Um...-she takes a look over everyone else's PT get ups, then gestures at her sweatshirt- Did I come under dressed for this?-
Edited by stargirl93 on May 2nd 2021 at 12:08:17 PM
The pen rubbed Its non-existent chin as it pondered, Maybe... just maybe. It'd take a bit of juice to do so and prevent it from ruining that delightful meal you made.
Gale would soon feel the Pen's avatar leaning over her shoulder again, We could do so... do you want to? Leave the Medicham to get chased down by Arthur over there?
Bishop smirked a bit, "It'll take me some time to process the information on hand, but we will be working to helping end this civil war with the Rebellion," he assured.
He looked over the ship, "Seems the Captain hasn't returned yet. Well, he'll be back eventually, repairs are nearly done."
