Circhester Stadium, VS Gordie and Melony

-The shaking of the ground knocks both Gordie and Melony off-balance.-

Melony: Oh my! That is quite a powerful tremor.

Gordie: WoahwoahwoahwAAAAAH!!!

-Gordie falls onto his backside.-

Melony: Are you okay, Gordie?

Gordie: I'm fine, mom...

-Melony helps Gordie back to his feet.-

Gordie: Now, Gigalith! Use Power Gem!

Melony: Froslass, use Psychic!

Me: Yuki-sama, use Blizzard!

Evelyn: Simon, look out!

-Melony's Froslass glows with a mystifying teal aura as she unleashes a psychic wave on Yuki, binding her.-

Me: -worried- Yuki-sama!

Yuki: <D-Daijōbuda! Atashi wa korekara nukede koto ga dekimasu!>Translation 

-Yuki struggles to move in the psychic wave and she takes a deep breath. Upon exhaling, she unleashes a mighty blast of wind and snow on Melony's Froslass, catching her off guard.-

Melony's Froslass: <Ah! What power!>

-Gordie's Gigalith stomps its foot again and the red crystals on its body glow orange with power. The Compressed Pokémon then fires a powerful energy beam from its mouth at Simon, knocking him backwards.-

Evelyn: Simon!

Simon: <D-Don't worry about me, Evelyn! I'll be fine!>

-At that moment, Simon feels a sudden rush of power course through his veins. He steps forward, pushing the Power Gem laser back as he gathers the ambient energy surrounding him.-

Evelyn: S-Simon?!

Gordie: Huh?! What's going on?

-Simon waves his hand, dispelling Gigalith's energy blast. He then takes a deep breath, causing psychic ripples to form at his feet, lifting chunks of ice and rock into the air. Simon smiles, as this sudden rush of power feels absolutely invigorating.-

Me: -telepathically to Evelyn- ~You don't think Simon could be...~

Evelyn: -telepathically to Ian- ~Learning a new move? Nothing else could explain this sudden rush of power I sense from him!~

-Simon shifts his left foot back as he focuses on Gordie's Gigalith. He clenches both his fists as the power is concentrated in one place.-

Simon: <IMMA FIRIN MAH LAZER~!!>

-Simon takes another deep breath as he pulls back. Then, like a meme out of the early 2000s, the Hypnosis Pokémon exhales a massive beam of pure energy from his mouth at Gigalith.-

Simon: BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!

-Gordie's Gigalith is overwhelmed by the sudden blast of energy and is driven backwards into the wall, causing an explosion that kicks up a lot of dust.-

Evelyn: Simon... That was Hyper Beam...

-Evelyn goes all starry-eyed at the new move Simon has shown himself capable of using.-

Evelyn: You just learned HYPER BEAM!

Me: Congrats, Simon!

Spikemuth

Evelyn: Well, I think it's time we head to the pitch and cheer Kim on.

Me: Right. Wouldn't wanna miss her battle.

-Ian and Evelyn head off past the Pokémon Center to watch Kim's Gym Battle with Marnie.-

Spikemuth Pitch

-Ian and Evelyn arrive at the pitch to watch the battle unfold.-

Me: Go for it, Kim!

Evelyn: We believe in you!

-Then, Marnie's Liepard uses Fake Out!-

Me: Liepard's Fake Out is gonna be a tough move to deal with...

Evelyn: You say this as though you speak from experience.

Me: That's partly because I do... I remember going up against Grimsley's Liepard a couple of years ago...

Unova, Pokémon League, February 2016

-Ian stands opposed to Grimsley, his Oshawott's sword drawn and ready to battle.-

Young Ian: Oshawittle! Use Razor Shell!

Grimsley: Liepard, use Fake Out!

-Oshawittle readies himself to attack, but Grimsley's Liepard was just too fast for the Sea Otter Pokémon, clapping its paws in front of Oshawittle's face, causing him to flinch.-

Young Ian: Oshawittle!

Grimsley: How do you like that? Fake Out is a move that causes the opponent to flinch. However, it must always be the first move used, or it won't work.

Young Ian: I see... Oshawittle, keep on your toes!

Oshawittle: <Aye!>

Young Ian: Use Razor Shell!

Grimsley: Use Night Slash!

-Oshawittle draws his sword from his scalchop and runs at Grimsley's Liepard, who rushes Oshawittle at full-sprint with its front claws glowing dark as night.-

Spikemuth, Present

Me: So we'd better watch out for that when it's our turn.

Evelyn: Right.

-Then, the Liepard calls Freddie a "cripple".-

Me: Whoa whoa whoa whoa! That, I would call Foul Play!

Evelyn: Poor Freddie!

-And then Elton shows up.-

Piku-chan: <Hey, look! It's Elton!>

Hatty: <I think he's mad.>

Piku-chan: <Can't says I blame him. After all, that Liepard just insulted his best friend. I'd probably be the same way if that were my best friend.>

Hammerlocke

-The magical glows fade and the two trainers rap the side of their heads, wink and stick their tongues out.-

Evelyn: Haha! Silly us!

Me: We should really consider introducing Kim to [Ojamajo Doremi], shouldn't we?

Evelyn: Should we start with the sub version or should we ease her into it with the dub?

Me: Good question, but regardless... I'm sure that with the combined might of us three...

Evelyn: We can create Perfect Harmony.

Me: Let's challenge this Gym together, Kim! Whaddya say?

Giant's Cap, Evelyn

-Evelyn stands behind the weakened body of her childhood friend. She takes a few deep breaths before gingerly touching her fingertips to Hoops' temples. Her eyes go blank with a faint pink ring around the iris as she taps into her psychic powers, going into a trancelike state. A faint but mystical purple light surrounds her body.-

Evelyn: -in a trancelike state- Ready.

Giant's Cap, Sophie

Sophie: So you need help evolving Hummy. I get it. Tell me what to get and I'll go get it.

Circhester's Castle

-Dr. Azala sits down to dinner with Cassander, ready to watch Krypton's performance.-

Dr. Azala: Thank you so much for your hospitality, Cassander.

Great Hall

-Krypton steps into the center of the hall, ready for his opponent.-

Krypton: Ready!

Firestorm: <Hold on, hold on, let's not panic...>

Jade: "We landed with a bunch of lunatics! This is an asylum! We-"

Firestorm: <Do you really think we ought to go back, after everything?

-The word "everything" echoes in Jade's ears a bit-

Jade: "Y-You're right. This ship may. May have a lot of. Very eccentric people. But they're probably nice if I get to know them. Probably. We might also just have to keep looking."

Firestorm: <...Better.>

-Odin is playing with action figures when suddenly Owen bursts in-

Odin: "What is it?"

Owen: "I'm going to make a device out of this thing!"

Odin: "...Is that a Burst Heart?"

Owen: -blinks- "...How... How do you know?"

Odin: "Cipher toyed with them a bit. Don't knowe much. All I remember is someone tried to combine one with a Shadow Pokemon and hoo boy, it ended badly. But what are YOU going to do with this Burst Heart-based device?

Owen: "I'm going to put myself in it!"

Owen: -toothy grin at Bjorn- <Did you know that Mike Love's 1981 solo album Looking Back With Love features his cover of ABBA's "On and On and On", and he again included it on his 2019 solo album 12 Sides of Summer?>

Channah: ...That means he's very happy to meet a fellow classic pop enthusiast. But I'm afraid that, uh, Owen's not much of a, um, normal conversationalist, as such.

Owen: <Did you know that the melody in the Beach Boys' 1985 song "Getcha Back" was based on that of Bruce Springsteen's "Hungry Heart", which itself was inspired by the Beach Boys' style?>

Channah: See? He's mad about that one band only, anyway. Can't get him to talk about anything else. -to Ingrid- So are you a League challenger? Or just a hobbyist trainer? ...Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Daydre nods.

"I only know what was in the briefing but yeah, it didn't sound like they're the kind of organization to lend out people to do regular chores."

She stares at Morata for a while.

".. I know she probably won't notice us but damn does it feel like she will."

There don't appear to be any side entrances, but there are three windows. The first has curtains drawn, the second has a view into a room full of assorted masks, and the third seems to lead into a study.

Great Hall

As with most medieval buildings, the great hall is also the dining room. Cassander and Alexis are seated in front, on an elevated part, while their "entertainment" occupies the center of the room. It all seems like a fitting place to fight.

Cassander: Think nothing of it, Alexis. It's the least I can do for a fellow genius. I ought to secure the privilege of hosting our next conference. I certainly already have ideas for entertainment.

Cassander: The rules are simple, Number 36. Push your opponent off the edge of the red border of the hall or pin them down until they're unable to battle. Neither you nor your opponent are allowed to use projectiles of any sort is that understood?

On the opposite side of the Great Hall is Igor. He faced down the schoolchild with a placid look on his face that, to a keen observer, seemed quite inoffensive. He bends his neck back and forth as if trying to stretch.

Igor: Ready when you are.

Notably, Igor doesnt't appear to have any pokéballs with him.

-Looking over the rooms-

First one's... risky, I'll see if I can peer through the blinds. Second is a good bet but feels like a trap since it's probably the most guarded entrance, and third would most likely be if we wanted to ensure a direct confrontation with Morata.

Kim: "You're kidding me..."

Elton: <ALRIGHT~! Great work, Simon!>

Cuddles: <Whoa...>

Spikemuth

(Upon seeing Elton enter the room and call out the Liepard, Marnie's Liepard smirks.)

Liepard: <What, was that too much for you?>

Elton: (berating her) <"Too much"? TOO MUCH?! That was my best friend you just told that to, and now 'e's about to go down!>

Liepard: <Exactly my point. Once he's down, I can finally show him the trrrrruth. But he's too much of a wimp to realize that, is he? He's got nobody who loves him for who he is, I'm betting... and I'm betting that not even you can ignorrrre those disgusting grrrrrippers of his.>

(Meanwhile, Freddie is hearing all this— and the moment he hears the Liepard say that, he looks up and says something, in tears.)

Freddie: (weakly, in tears) <''That's...>

(Elton and Kim promptly hear him and turn to face him.)

Kim: (relieved) "Freddie!"

Elton: (with evident delight) <You're okay! Thank goodness! I->

(But he is interrupted by Freddie raising a gripper to silence him and stepping forward towards the Liepard, shaking with fear the whole time. He looks up at the Liepard, with tears in his eyes, and shakes his head adamantly.)

Freddie: (in tears) <T-that's not true...>

Liepard: (furious) <You— YOU'RE ALIVE?! I thought I had you, you little—!>

Freddie: (in tears) <H-he can ignore them... in fact, he doesn't even care that I have them... a-and he never has. A-and... and my Trainer hasn't either. Everybody on my team... they've given me the love that I never thought I could ever have. My old Trainer abandoned me because of these grippers... b-but... but Kim never did. Elton never did. N-none of my friends did!>

(And then all of a sudden, he begins to flash blue, as a torrent of water surrounds him.)

Freddie: (in tears, with a hint of determination to his voice) <Believe me. W-when I evolved for the first time... I... I thought my grippers were odd, too. I... I didn't think they were supposed to be there. A-and they're not. I still don't fully understand why I have them, but...> (He chokes back tears.) <If the people I love are able to love me for who I am... then...>

(The water surrounding him starts to whirl around, and he promptly states:)

Freddie: (determined, with tears) <THEN I SHOULD, TOO!>

(Kim and Elton look on in stunned delight and disbelief at Freddie's sudden stand.)

Spikemuth Stands

(As do Braker, Walter, and Cuddles.)

Cuddles: <ALRIGHT! You go, Freddie~!>

Braker: "Is that... is that Torrent?!"

Walter: <It could be...>

(And then he remembers what happened when Elton evolved, and he gains a bit of shock to his voice.)

Walter: (with just a tinge of shock) <Or perhaps... it could be something more.>

Braker: (stunned) "You can't be saying..."

(Walter nods. Immediately, Braker focuses his camera on Freddie.)

Spikemuth Gym Battle

(And sure enough, within seconds, the torrent of water grows to completely obscure Freddie from view as he glows brighter. Elton and Kim look on in disbelief.)

Elton: <No way!>

Kim: "You're kidding..."

Liepard: <...Crap.>

(Marnie merely looks on in mild shock.)

Hammerlocke

(Kim thinks about it for a bit... then nods.)

Kim: "Alright. Let's do it."

Braker: "Only one problem, though."

(Kim promptly turns to face Braker.)

Braker: "How can you take on Raihan if Raihan mainly uses Double Battles rather than Triple Battles?"

(Kim looks down.)

Kim: "Hmmm. I hadn't thought of that."

Parfum Palace

(Kim and Braker's group exit the portal— and emerge on the other side of Parfum Palace— as the rest of the group are flying in the air.)

Kim: "We made it..."

Braker: "Oh dear."

Cuddles: <Who's the Porygon-2?>

Walter: <Not sure, but...>

(And then Panto emerges.)

Panto: <Hang on, everybody! I'll save you!>

Braker: "Panto?!"

(Panto promptly raises his hands in the air and unleashes psychic energy in an attempt to get everyone to float down to the floor safely.)

Panto used Psychic!

Wyndon, September 12th

There is in fact a little crack in the curtains, but it doesn't reveal anything particularly notable. A sliver of couch is visible, along with a bit of side table and a glimpse of a fancy lamp.

The second window reveals a slightly more interesting room. Masks line the walls and reside in a couple display cases. Masks that resemble painted human faces, pokemon, plants, other natural phenomena, spanning a wide range of cultures. At least from this angle, though, there's nothing resembling the mask Aislinn had with her during her interview.

Daydre peers in.

"... What percentage of this stuff do you think was gotten legitimately? I'm assuming pretty low, given what I've heard about the Macrauls."

The final room, the study, doesn't seem to offer much. The walls are lined with bookshelves and there's a desk next to another window across the way. A couple rolling chairs sit in the middle of the room.

-To Daydre, peering through the walls with Aura Sense in an attempt to pinpoint the mask-

I would be surprised if even 1% of that collection was obtained legitimately, she'd probably consider replicas "not authentic" enough. Unfortunately I'm not sure where we'd start, I suppose if we can directly identify any of the other masks as stolen we can send an anonymous tip to the cops have the place raided after we're done. They'd most likely probably ignore it though, if they're not already getting paid off by her...

Doc: <What if we called your archaeologist friend, Dr. Nakamura?>

-Thinking-

Possibly, I've got a good enough camera to take pictures from this distance to send to her, then she can send it to some colleagues and they could identify what she can't. And being in Sinnoh means it's harder to track it back to her.

"From your story it sounded like the cops wouldn't listen to Aislinn, so... They're probably not gonna be any help. But maybe something from outside professionals would change that, I dunno."

Nothing familiar pings off any of the masks in the room in front of them. However.

There's.. something below them. Maybe a little more forward and to the right- presumably in a basement room. Something that roughly feels like the mask Tagg saw on TV. But unlike the mask on TV, or any general feelings he got around Aislinn, there appears to be something in this one, aura-wise. Something deeply, deeply angry.

"You see anything?"

-To Daydre-

Okay, I think I've found it in the basement and it... has it's own Aura, and it's... deeply, deeply angry.

-Shocked-

Whatever its exact origins, that's no ordinary mask. Question's whether someone poured enough of their Aura into it to give it sentience, or someone's spirit is bound to the mask, that's a bit harder to discern without a more direct observation.

Circhester Stadium, VS Gordie and Melony

-The dust settles, revealing an unconscious Gigalith with swirling eyes lying down on the pitch.-

Referee: Wha-? G-GIGALITH IS UNABLE TO BATTLE!

-Gordie, shocked by the sudden display of destructive force, calls Gigalith back to its Poké Ball.-

Melony: Now, Froslass! Use Icy Wind!

Me: Yuki-sama! Use Shadow Ball!

-Melony's Froslass spits out a chilly breath in Yuki's direction, while Yuki launches an orb of shadowy energy at Melony's Froslass, knocking her out of the air, unconscious.-

Melony's Froslass: <Ooooh... You're too good...>

Referee: FROSLASS IS ALSO UNABLE TO BATTLE!

-Melony calls her Froslass back to her Poké Ball.-

Evelyn and I: Alright, Simon! That was so cool!

Simon: <Heh... It was nothing, really...>

-In that moment, Simon began to feel weak, and he fell to his knees out of exhaustion.-

Evelyn: Simon, what's wrong?

Me: Matte, Evelyn.

Evelyn: Eh?

Me: Think about it. Simon just learned Hyper Beam. That's a really powerful attack. But once you use it, you won't be able to move for a while.

Evelyn: Holy Hecate, you're right! Simon, return!

-Evelyn calls the exhausted Hypno back to his Poké Ball.-

Me: Yeah! Gym Leaders can do that.

Wyndon, September 12

-To Daydre-

Perhaps there's a bit more to your family than you or Aislinn realize, to have something like that in its possession. Might want to ask her directly if she knew from the stat, but that'll probably mean revealing your personal connection to this quest, are you prepared for that?

-Scanning-

No direct ways into the basement, so there's probably some secret switch we'd have to press to open the way in. Otherwise, we may wish to leave since the only way we'd get more info is if our casing turned into convincing our way into the house, and that'd be much tougher since I'm sure she'll have her Schoolkid watching our every move even if we do manage to bluff our way inside.

The Walking Mountain, Control Center

Colossus: We are here.

Garuda: <This place is very large, yet it seems... defunct?>

Colossus: Astute. This was the original defense control center. The entire Mountain's defensive systems were centered here, until the command controls were forcefully rerouted to the peak.

Rill: <The controls weren't already there?>

Colossus: The peak was never intended to be a command location. It was intended to be a pleasure resort. The other 95% of the Walking Mountain was intended to have scientific, spiritual, economic, and military intentions. Now, however, most of the Mountain appears to be redirected to supporting whatever the usurper's whims happen to be this kalpa.

Rill: <... What's a kalpa?>

Colossus: Nonstandard unit of measuring time. Due to the warping effects of the Walking Mountain's dimensional sheath, time flows differently here. Days, weeks, and months are replaced with more abstract terminology.

Garuda: <Right, anyway - why bring us here?>

Colossus: You are psychic. You may interface with these systems, whereas I may not.

Garuda: <... Ah. Chain of hierarchy.>

Colossus: Correct.

Garuda: <How effective will this be?>

Colossus: Due to the system's creators putting great import into this room, the Mountain WILL respond if you enter a command here. Some commands will be able to be immediately countermanded from the peak, but they cannot stop you from sending the initial request. You both have Artificer Lord-level command priority - one cannot lock out the other. However, she likely has an automated system to fight you - on systems she is aware of, at least. She is not as thorough as she thinks.

Garuda: <Very well. What do I do?>

Colossus: Focus your mind on the command table toroid. It is a focus that will draw you into the Psychointerface. Do note that this system is far more advanced than anything you may have experienced at your previous stationing, and will likely be jarring.

Garuda: <This entire venture has been quite jarring.>

Rill: <Oh, please, it's been like this ever since Galvani turned into a chick.>

Colossus: Please clarify the term: chick.

Big Dom: <I AM STOPPING THIS CONVERSATION NOW.>
