"Funny thing is," Sunny started. "Said Bolt is also a Pokemon by nature like me. Namely, a Ninetales. And when she's suited up, she has all the powers she needs for her job," she summarized. "If I'm lucky, so will I when all is said and done."

"Eh, I guess," she conceded. "It's just that, well, I'm not a Pokemon right now, so..." she shrugged behind the Light Screen as it faded, and she stretched her shoulders, ears and tail having faded away as a bit of fire came out from her opened palm.

She gave a little spin afterwards, posing with a hand on her hip. "How's it look? I'm honestly thinking the name "Angel"."

Circhester Stadium, VS Gordie and Melony

Blossom: <Whu? What's happening? Is this a battle?>

Evelyn: Y-You're kidding!

Me: Why not? After all, Blossom hasn't had a good battle since the museum and I thought I'd oblige her.

Evelyn: Well... oh what the heck?

-Ian and Evelyn then look over the next Pokémon that Melony and Gordie bring out.-

Me: I don't think I've ever seen that Pokémon before.

-Ian checks his Pokédex as Evelyn checks hers.-

Ian's Pokédex: Mr. Rime, the Comedian Pokémon and the evolved form of Galarian Mr. Mime. An Ice and Psychic type. It's highly skilled at tap-dancing. It waves its cane of ice in time with its graceful movements. Its amusing movements make it very popular. It releases its psychic power from the pattern on its belly.

Evelyn's Pokédex: Shuckle, the Mold Pokémon. A Bug and Rock type. When Shuckle places organic materials in its husk-like shell, the items are transformed into a unique juice. Shuckle are naturally shy and are most often found hiding beneath rocks.

Gordie: So that's the Lileep you two were entrusted with back at the museum. Let's see how well she handles herself in battle. Ready, Mom?

Melony: I thought you'd never ask...

Gordie: Shuckle! Use Stone Edge!

Melony: Mr. Rime! Use Nasty Plot!

Evelyn: Simon, use Meditate!

Me: Blossom, use Acid!

-Gordie's Shuckle slams his body into the ground and raises a series of rocks which he throws at Blossom, who melts them by spraying acid on them. Simon sits down and crosses his legs. He then closes his eyes and meditates, levitating slightly in the air as he does, increasing his Attack. Melony's Mr. Rime hangs back and thinks up a plan on how to outwit and defeat his opponents, sharply increasing his Special Attack.-

Giant's Cap

Evelyn: -extremely worried- HOOPS!

Me: NO!

-Ian jumps right off the broom and lands on the ground like a superhero. Evelyn flies her broom to Ian and lands beside him, extremely worried about her friend.-

-Meanwhile, Sophie looks over at the witch and her friend and stops blasting the wall of wind with cold and rushes over to meet them.-

Sophie: You must be the allies Dr. Azala mentioned that I would meet with. I am designation 007, Nitrogen of the School's Freshman Class, but so as we don't REALLY need to be as formal, my name is Sophie. I was sent here because I was worried that Vanadium would do something she'd regret and since you were here, I thought you might help me with the mission of stopping her before it's too late.


AV: Thanks. You too!

-Flashback to about a decade ago, the moon approaching the Orange Islands, Sol wearing a certain heart-shaped and spiky mask-

I'm... pretty familiar with stuff like that. Do you have any idea why they want your family's stuff?

-Well of course, under a fresh round of attacks and flame the wood coating comes off this set of mannequins, revealing the metal skeletons underneath. Their construction was maybe surprisingly cheap for the tools of a Templar. Regardless, the now de-wooded puppets started trying to stab at their assailants in an attempt to get to the escapee trio-

Lee House, Meat Factory

-The PA continues to crackle-

Factory PA: Wait, they're... Oh, I see. Those artists are shutting down for the season so they sent the Thieves in to tear down my factory?

-Yeah, he's not reading from a script anymore. The noise of factory machinery intensifies and the walls begin to shudder-

Factory PA: I will not let you sabotage my ambitions. The formula remains safely in my grasp and my body will fight off this infection of Thieves. Besides, you have no way in do you? That little artist's collective put their portal over the only way in and out of the observation platform... But that's not a problem for my own workers, they move through my body like blood cells... Security!

-One of the walls near the portal out starts quaking and bulging as something seems to be trying to push through. Now might be a good time to run-

Gale's Cabin, Todayish

-This invitation had to be a trap. Clearly; an invitation to a random festival at Parfum Palace where noone in the J-Team had been in years, sent by someone who had been totally and utterly off the radar for about as long? To put it in the terminology of the current era, it was incredibly sus-

-Which was precisely why Gale Knight would be attending that festival. If this was some kind of danger calling J-Teamers into a trap she would need to be there in order to avert whatever was going to try and harm the Team-

-Gale steps into the shadows, destination: Kalos-

It's clearly a case of backroom political albumizing.

Aislinn: "... It's.. rare. As far as I know it's one of kind. And if the person who I think has it, has it, then she's got this... thing for collecting masks specifically."

"I thought that by trying to convince her the one she had was fake, that she'd come after the one I have instead and I could steal the real one back.. somehow."

Parfum Palace

Kendall and Kamui arrive, the latter holding a little book with a number of instructions within.

"Wonder what they sell here," Kendall considered as he looked around. Perhaps he's find someone. He looked down at the paper ninja star in his hand, extending his illusion powers to neatly make it take on a number of other simple shapes.

Meat Palace

"Leg it!" Rn'L barked as he removed his blindfold to head back down the path, Ahemait picking up the others who hadn't already started running and throwing them on his back.

Rebel Base

"Yeah, I've, uh..." she trailed off, looked down at her palm and curled some of her fingers in somewhat, a purple construct of energy forming and soon turning invisible. "Had something of a history leading to this," she explained.

Actress: But you haven't -

-they peer at Jade, still talking to Shun-

I mean, I don't really know what specific guarantees I can offer. I'm acting on behalf of the J-team, and I'm tangentially familiar with your bosses, but organizations aren't really worth so much as a guarantee of faith. I guess if you have a psychic you could read my mind, but I'm sure we all know how much that's worth.

What I can tell you is that I'm acting on Tagg's behalf, and will render duties to the extent that he would and to the extent that I am personally able. I don't really think that promises count for a whole lot, so I won't bother making them, but if you have faith in him, I'd like to think you can have that faith in me as well.


Ever: Also Rainbow Rocket what is that, are they doing a Pride special? I didn't even know Rocket was extant.

Of course, since you've been so kind as to tell me a bit about yourselves, I guess I can give you a bit of a demonstration of what I can do if you'd like.

But it doesn't seem to have gone the way you planned, did it?

So they collect masks, huh? Are they like a Macraul or something, sounds like the sort of thing one of them would do, they're not always the most moral when it comes to collecting.


I would know.

She glances out at the source: a massive wall of flames, burning from what seems to be a massive thermite reaction, blocking off the entire width of the road and sidewalk just outside, causing civilians on both sides to panic.-

-That's bad, but that's not what makes Kai go stark-white.-

-What they pale at the sight of is the perpetrator: a blue-cloaked, motorcycle-masked individual with glowing, Toxicroak-esque eyes, rushing off in the opposite direction with a bag tucked away under their arm.-

Old Cemetery

-the world doesn't get colder, exactly-

-it's chilly in the graveyard as is, even in the late summer nighttime, breath fogging in place-

-but as the soft thumps of heavy footfall on clammy soil become audible, the cold becomes ancillary, an effective literalized metaphor for what's really approaching, which is not cold but the simple act of stilling. Of ending-

-the shadows deepen and solidify-

-it's not a big horse that emerges from the gloom. Well, it is, but they're smaller than a Mudsdale, slim and built for running. They by picture-frame, appearing anew with each step. They don't look at Tagg or Calyrex, one of their eyes covered by mane, the other closed. Hardly monstrous-

-But the world cleaves to them. Grave dirt shifts with the acute discomfort of finding yourself in a room with someone you've been complaining about. Water leaches from the earth, the grass becoming decayed and petrified under increasingly sharp hoofbeats as they approach. Rust spreads over metal, the breeze finds that it has something urgent to attend to and makes itself scarce-

-across the water, religious Kalosians talk about Yveltal, and her dominion over death-

-in Galar, the very religious may still do so, but they do it in whispers-

Spectrier: <...>

-they come to a halt, meters away from Tagg and Calyrex-

<How dare you.>

-their mouth doesn't move as they speak. The voice comes from one of the graves-

Chiyo: -Forming three rainbow barriers that circle around her- Well as you know, I make barriers. Some are as you'd expect, merely for blocking, and others...

-Focuses on one barrier a bit as it goes under Dactyl as another creates spikes-

Dactyl: -Bounces up and down said barrier-

Chiyo: Are a bit different. I can control the atmospheric conditions inside them too, something I really learned after I'd run away, perhaps things would've been different if I'd figured it out sooner.

-Forms a small circular barrier in her hands as a small flame forms inside-

Chiyo: -As a wooden block, a metal block, and a ballistic gel mockup of an upper body come out of the Stormchaser, and she forms the last barrier into a disc between her fingers- But the School really started considering me dangerous when I figured this out.

-Lets the disc fly as it cuts through the objects like paper, but the metal block halves are noticeably red where they were cut-

Never expected I could do stuff like this with only barriers.

-Well, when you have sensitivities to supernatural phenomena, and years of dealing with the deities making up this world on top of top, the ambient Aura being absorbed into horse-shaped hole in your Aura Sense Foresight is barely allowing you to make sense of, you can kinda see it coming, but that doesn't make it any less intimidating-

Calyrex: -Makes themselves scarce immediately-

Hitodama: -As a liminal being herself, is a bit intrigued-

-The other mons milling around are a bit closer to unnerved, save for Diplo-

Ginny: -Uncharacteristically quiet- <There was a legend, that long ago, a Rapidash and a Mudsdale became something... more in our Crown Tundra. The Musdale froze and became Glastrier, but the Rapidash, they became...>

One of the more dangerous legendaries, before Calyrex tamed the steeds of death and frost, before humans arrived, possibly before the Vow, they were the original lords of this Crown Tundra. Said to be able to separate soul from body with a single strike of its hooves, an act any horse could do, but especially the one known as...

-The words escaping my mouth-


Muddy: <They do not seem very happy to see us.>

<Before the age of man. Before the age of the twin wolves. Before even the age of the harvester, who conquered this land. Your ancestors had not yet created the tools of control you now carry. You huddled in your structures and around your fires and you knew to fear the cold and the dark. From that fear, my companion and I emerged, your rulers by the oldest laws of all.>

<The high king drove us out. We thought they were pitiful at first, but they spread light where they walked. They raised the humans up and taught them to turn the land itself to their ends. They no longer feared us, and our power waned, and under the Vow, we withdrew from the human places.>

<But the king's rule is broken and the king hides from our hunt. The wolves slink away, battered and torn. The humans, as a force, may be mighty, but individually, you are not of much concern. The world is necrotic and friable, and ripe for our return.>

<And you, smelling of other gods, humming with the aura of one marked by power, you come here and you treat me as one of your Pokemon, to be summoned and supplicated. Tell me, petitioner, why I should not loose your spirit from your flesh and run you down. What mission brings you to me?>

-To Spectrier, voice even and Aura betraying no fear-

I am Tagg, of Easel Town, nestled in the mountains of Kanto not too dissimilar to this land, no stranger to death due to those drawn to it by the Sea of Trees. My Pokémon, my friends and family, I do not keep them with me by the rule of power, that I am merely stronger than them, they follow me because I've earned their loyalty many times over, and they know they have mine, since I have fought and bled with more perhaps more than most humans do with their Pokémon. I do not keep them as slaves, my own line has known bondage for centuries and I would never subject another living being to having their cultural Self ground to near nothing and having to pick up the pieces as best you can.

I know you and your counterpart care little for my kind, that even mentioning my blood ties to this frozen land, soaked in the blood of empire over centuries, does little to satiate your ire, but I still entreat your council. I meant no disrespect, but I was sent to Galar by the Hall of Orgin in order to meet the gods of Galar and ask for them to join their divine council.

In particular, by Lady Uxie herself. I visit her often, and sometimes she tells me stories that keep me awake at night. Of a time eons ago, when her sisters of Spirit, and her siblings of Time, Space, and Neither, all were tasked by the Alpha of bringing Order and Balance to a world, no, a universe gnawed by the primordial chaos of what we now know as Glitches. An age before us, before you, before the earliest Mew came screaming out of the primordial ooze. You have felt my Aura, you know I deal in things that are unknown or forgotten from the rest of the world, almost all the Nine Realms I have visited.

The wolves no longer lick their wounds, they stand glorious and resplendent as they did during the Darkest Day. Even the harvester may one day know of proper companionship. I know of the time you speak of, before the Vow, when for the most part humans and Pokémon knew nothing of partnership, that the other was mostly feared or hunted, when the Alakagross and the Shadowlanders were young. The Vow is imperfect, someone who works with it as closely as me knows that better than most, but I know a return to the old ways would merely bring ruin to both humans and Pokémon, even those like you who've chosen to shy away from the Vowed realm of Man. Humans and Pokémon, none can survive without the other.

I work for a future where the ancient pact is no longer necessary, even if it's unlikely I see it unless I become something more than humanity, and in the end, that is why I am here, They Who Canter in the Night.

Parfum Palace

-Gale arrives from the shadows, immediately noting both the lack of anything alive beyond other J-Team members and also that the doors are open-

Yeah okay this is a massive trap. Does anyone want to stay out here and hold the door? I'll do it if no one else wants to.

It's clearly a case of backroom political albumizing.

Galar Mountains

Alyesha chuckled when hearing that, giving a thumbs up while unpacking some more cooking utensils, with Emer seeing that, although clearly meant for camping, they still looked a lot more at home in a professional chef's kitchen than here. While unpacking her stuff, Alyesha idly hummed a bit, looking over to Emer after a bit.

Alyesha: "Any preferences on the food then~? Or am I free to blow your mind in any way I want~?"

Meanwhile, Krasnaya went over closer to Emer, tilting her head shortly before plomping down on Emer's lap and tapping one of her arms with her bone before pointing to her head before watching Alyesha while expecting pats.

"One may feel fear in the face of danger so long as one banishes fear when danger actually arrives"
