Calyrex: <Now now, there'll be no more of that today.>

Glastrier: -Snorts as the temperature goes back to kinda cold as opposed to bone-chillingly freezing- <Not worth the trouble of cleaning your blood off my hooves anyway.>

Calyrex: -To me- <I suppose we'll be off then, I couldn't have done this without you and your wonderful Pokémon. It would've been embarrassing to call the Champion back here.>

I guess you'll be off then.

Calyrex: <Indeed, as I'm sure you'll be too. I see much in both of your futures, but the thing about the future, is that it's always in flux. Until next time, Tagg, Channah, your combined retinue.>

Glastrier: <This Council stuff had better be good, or I'm heading out again.>

Circhester Stadium Lobby

Me: Oh yeah.

Evelyn: It's a Long Story.

Spikemuth Gym Puzzle

Team Yell Grunt A: Thievul, use Crunch!

Team Yell Grunt B: Scraggy, use High Jump Kick!

Team Yell Grunt C: Linoone, use Night Slash!

-Team Yell Grunt A's Thievul bares her fangs as she charges headlong at Piper. Yell Grunt B's Scraggy jumps high into the air and pulls up his pants. His left foot glows orange and he descends with a powerful kick. Yell Grunt C's Linoone cloaks their claws in a shadowy aura and tries to slash at Mirai.-

Me: Piper, let Thievul get in close and use Thunderbolt!

Evelyn: Mirai, use Draining Kiss on Linoone!

Evelyn and I: Then dodge!

-Sparks fly from Piper's cheeks as she uses her tail as a lure for Yell Grunt A's Pokémon. The Fox Pokémon bites down on Piper's tail, only to be met by a massive surge of electricity before being thrown off. Mirai approaches the Rushing Pokémon, grabs onto their paw and kisses it gently. The Galarian Linoone emanates a surge of energy that Mirai absorbs. Mirai then throws the surprised Rushing Pokémon at the Thievul. The two Pokémon then jump out of the way of the tactical Scraggy inbound, causing the Baggy Pants Shedding Pokémon to continue his descent and collide with the other two Pokémon for massive damage.-

Team Yell Grunt B's Scraggy kept going and crashed!


It's Super Effective!


-When the dust settles, all three of the Pokémon are knocked out.-

Team Yell Grunt A: Didja really hafta lead with High Jump Kick, B?

Team Yell Grunt B: Wot? It's not my fault they moved! They moved!

Team Yell Grunt C: Yeh, and positioned things so you'd crash into us!

Team Yell Grunt B: Oh, what WILL Marnie think?

Evelyn: I think she'll say that you tried your best, but your teamwork could use some fine-tuning.

-The three Team Yell Grunts look over at Evelyn, then to each other and quickly deliberate.-

Team Yell Grunt B: Oh. Thanks. Ye can pass.

Me: Thank you very kindly.

-Ian and Evelyn continue on their way, when suddenly two more Team Yell Grunts appear and throw Poké Balls.-

Team Yell Grunt D and E: C'mon out, Stunky!

-The two Poké Balls open and from them jump a pair of Stunky.-

Evelyn: Nothing to it! Use Helping Hand!

Me: Piper, use Thunder!

-Mirai's eyes glow with a rainbow shimmer and psychic energy surrounds her hands, manifesting as a set of pompoms. She then does a cheer and touches a pompom to Piper, infusing her with its power. Piper then unleashes a massive bolt of lightning at the two Stunky. The two Skunk Pokémon fall to the ground, stunned.-

Team Yell Grunt D: Wot just happened?

Team Yell Grunt E: If I knew the answer t'that...

Evelyn and I: Well, that was fun. Let's keep going.

-Ian and Evelyn continue to battle through the corridor.-

White Forest, the Melodic Meeting

-Ian nods as he listens to Meloetta's advice. So far, it checks out. Evelyn has been supportive of Ian ever since they met. He should consider himself lucky to have someone that cares for him, despite the stupid things he sometimes does.-

Me: I understand where you're coming from, Meloetta. And, truth be told... I'm not entirely sure about what the job will entail.

-under breath- Or what Igor meant by "rehabilitation..."

I mean, I have only been with them for one mission.

-Ian looks around the clearing.-

Me: But I guess I should hold onto faith that Evelyn will understand what we do and embrace it...

Wyndon Stadium Pitch

-Ian and Evelyn step out onto the pitch, dressed in a custom designed Kwan Industries Gym Challenger uniform with a little red and gold cape, and a Psychic Kimono respectively, both marked with the number 556.-

Your friends might be pranking you but there are people who can understand Pokemon. Some colleges have classes for it, if memory serves.

A lot of the questions were lost on him but there were a few, including one that seemed a bit too out there for a site like this one.

Wyndon Stadium

As Ian and Evelyn walk out.

Announcer: And here are the other opponents, a pair of trainers that always fight together, Ian and Evelyn!

Hoops nods to them as they stand next to Kim.

Announcer: Now, we'll explain the rules of this battle. The match is split into two teams - the team of Kim, Evelyn, and Ian, and the team of Hoops. Each has access to thirteen pokémon, and the battle will be over when one side has no pokémon remaining. But here's the catch. Each team can have up to the number of pokémon on the field as they have trainers to command them. So we could be seeing one on one, two against one, or even three against one! And before you say this is unfair, Hoops asked for this, and we just obliged.

The referee steps forwards.

Referee: This will be a battle using standard league rules, aside from those already announced. Only the league challenger Hoops may substitute pokémon. When you are ready, please send out your pokémon.

Hoops steps forwards.

Hoops: Promise me you won't go easy, guys. Go, Sud!

They throw their first pokéball, which opens to release the shiny Sudowoodo.

The Wing dodged a rocket salvo, as drones flew out of the Flagship.

"You Can Not Board Me. I Will Not Allow It."

Arthur hit the teleport button... nothing happened. He grunted and then turned to Hayden.

"We've been hit with a hacking module," Hayden explained. "Our ability to port is down currently."

Arthur sighed and waited, little he could do.

"About that," Silas's voice came over the intercom. "Gale, the suit is fully pressurized and your friend can keep speed with the Wing right? If so, let's see the dawnblade used to cut any modules that want to play rough off of my ship."

Sinnoh Region, Jubilife City, City Streets 1.5 Days Later:

After a spending a day alternating between slacking off and working on his term paper, Travis and Mark would meet just outside of the hotel he was staying at by a four way intersection.

"Dude, you haven't changed a bit, aside from getting even stronger somehow!" Travis announced upon spotting his old friend and walking by with Tricky by his side.

The stocky fighter accompanied with an ever-curious Machoke would reply, "Well when you train for as many years as I have, you'd hope you'd have something to show for it!". There was a brief pause as both trainers watched Chopper and Tricky meet and interact with one another for the first time.

Chopper would instinctively lower himself to one knee and reach a hand out for Tricky to interact with before saying, <"I've never seen a Manectric before, are you like a guide mon for your trainer?!">

Nonplussed, but trying (and failing) to be polite for now, Tricky would reply, <"Yes, and I'm also a guard mon. While I want to give you the benefit of the doubt, I'll only warn you once: I don't care how strong you are, if you hurt Travis even a little bit, I'll put enough current through you to see if your bones are as dense as your muscles.">

<"Relax mad dog, I don't fight or rough-house anyone who doesn't ask for it! I've been trained better than that!"> Chopper explained, attempting to reassure Tricky with a head pat only to quickly pull his hand back after Tricky discharged enough static to feel like accidentally touching the inside of a typical house outlet.

"Tricky, what did I say about shocking strangers?!" Travis scolded in surprise before explaining, "She doesn't tend to like new people at first, gets real defensive. Just needs time to get to know you, ya know?"

<"More like I don't appreciate being pet by strangers..."> Tricky growled before resigning herself once again to the fact that her trainer couldn't read her mind, nor understand anything she actually said.

"I get it, some people and pokemon are nicer than others. I'm sure the two of you get along fine enough, now where's this Tech-Expo you were talking about?"

Travis would lead the way with Tricky following closely beside him, "It's just down a few blocks this way. Stay close though, this city's bigger than it looks and full of tourist traps."

Wyndon, Tronci Motors Office

Louis: We can't expect all the corviknights in this city to be as well-behaved as mine. I'll bring that up with the guys from the union. And the fare thing. The operators raise the fees but the cabbies don't get as much of the cut from it.

Louis: Yeah, this place is bonkers. I've gotten to know a few of the middle management and apparently everything's on the up and up. The board all seem familiar, like I've seen them talk with dad before. Which is why I'm as perplexed as why they got me here. And wait, did you say spaceship? Twice.

Mathilde: Remember the group she usually follows, young master. An eclectic group of adventurers with connections to PEFE and the space people in Asimov. Incidentally, the group's chief sponsor is one of your father's hated enemies.

Louis: Any enemy of dad's is a friend of mine, I guess. Still, you've been on a spaceship? How'd it feel?

He sees Lanatus explain the details of the car to the copy he printed. By Abilene's reactions, she's definitely digging what the minivan could be. but the only way to give a fair assessment of it was to actually ride in it.

Louis: I really should get a Braille printer here soon. But if you're interested in taking the car out for a spin, I'd love to drive you around once we get it.. And it's apparently suited for some pokémon to be able to drive. We can try that feature out.

Beat.

(Milo and Ingrid both return their respective Pokemon, and Milo grins over at Ingrid.)

Milo: "Hoo-boy! Well, I must admit, that Beheeyem of yours is a pretty nice Pokemon. Even so, though... there are two mons left, and I'm not going to hold a thing back!" (He takes out another PokeBall, and throws it.) "Go, Cherrim!"

Cherrim: <Alright! Let's do this!>

Sinnoh Region, Jubilife City Streets:

Mark, Travis, Chopper, and Tricky would continue walking through the increasingly busy streets of Jubilife in search of the Tech-Expo. Each member of the party moved around with their own unconscious and distinct way of walking that conveyed aspects of their personality, with Mark power trudging his way about town as if to warn people to back off, Travis casually strolling through with a subtle limp from years of learning to live with it, Chopper constantly looking about with curiosity and awe, and Tricky walking with a stiff defense close to her trainer as they all passed by various pedestrians and the occasional street vendor.

<Everyone here seems so full of life. Is there a party going on soon?> Chopper wondered, having no real idea where he was going or why.

<Damn, this city's even bigger and more crowded in person! How does anyone put up with this?> Tricky growled, keeping a watchful eye on everyone the group passed.

Like any other city, the streets of Jubilife were full of people from various walks of life, and a lot of them seemed preoccupied with their own worlds and personal lives, glued to their poketches, music players, rotom phones and various other devices. To think many of these people, the party included, would be flocking to gather and see a glimpse of devices the next generation would have to offer...at least they would be had it not been for the massive line that would stop the party in their tracks.

Dumbfounded with a downplayed sense of inconvenience, Travis would note, "Woah, this expo's got way more hype than I thought! The line's practically 2 city blocks!"

"All this just for some new toys and trainer gear? I'd expect to see a line this size at a rock concert," Mark said in disbelief.

"With an event this big, I wouldn't be surprised if they had their own DJ. If they were able to draw the likes of Silph Co and the Devon Corporation here, there's gotta be serious money being put into it." Travis replied with an excited laugh. Not far off from their current position, Mark would notice a breakdancing trainer in a rough leather jacket and pants dancing in sync with their hitmontop on a surface of broken-down cardboard boxes with their rotom phone at full blast playing this snippet of music.

At about the same time, Travis would notice a young trainer with a shovel and quip lightheartedly, "Hey shovel knight, you digging the scene, or did you just walk out of a hardware store?!"

Sinnoh Region, Jubilife City:

"You don't say, isn't Oreburgh not far from here?" Travis wondered before adding in a facetious and needlessly drawn out manner, "My friends call me Travis, my coworkers call me Travis...and the needlessly professional call me Mr. Renault, but you can call me...wait for it, Travis,"

"You know you repeated yourself, right dumbass? Mark chimed in, not bothering to introduce himself while still focusing on the breakdancing trainer and their hitmontop, prompting Travis to mention him as well while dismissively throwing a hand.

"That was the entire joke, which must have been a flying type that flew over your head, all super-effective like!". Travis then bothers to actually kind of look at Owen before explaining, "That's just my old buddy Travis. Don't mind him, behind his tough exterior is...well, a tough interior, but you'll want him on your side, and he's a pretty cool dude when he wants to be."

Without even looking in their general direction, Mark would quickly gesture everyone to follow and look at the breakdancer and his hitmontop, whom were now wearing matching green-tinted sports sunglasses and working up a new synchronized routine "Speaking of cool dudes, this guy's busting moves I haven't seen since the last Master Class Coolness Contest I won,"

At this point the dancing duo began with a classic running man for a few seconds, followed by some arm swinging that quickly escalated into a backward hand spring and backflip in rapid succession. The trainer would doff his backwards ball cap with a Cubone skull and crossbones logo before joining his Hitmontop in performing 8 consecutive headspins before trying to kick around and throw himself back up...only it ended up being sloppy as he struggled to barely recover and follow through by doing the wurmple a few times and finishing with a technical landing.

The final result would be a modest applause of the audience with a few pokemon dollars being thrown into his hat, although there was a lingering suspicion that it could have been done so much better.

Evelyn: Absolutely.

Flashback Stormchaser, Christmas 2019

Voiceover Me: Evelyn and I were running through the halls of the Stormchaser. We had received a text telling us that Santa Claus was in danger.

-Ian and Evelyn continue down the path, only for a group of five female Team Yell Grunts in differently-colored magical girl-esque Team Yell outfits jump out from the shadows, Poké Balls at the ready. It is apparent that the Yell Grunt dressed in pink is the leader of the group.-

Pink Team Yell Mahou Shoujo: Go, Bisharp!

Red Team Yell Mahou Shoujo: I choose you, Shiftry!

Yellow Team Yell Mahou Shoujo: Come on out, Crawdaunt!

Green Team Yell Mahou Shoujo: Show 'em what you got, Cacturne!

Blue Team Yell Mahou Shoujo: Go for it, Skuntank!

-The magical girl-dressed Team Yell grunts throw their Poké Balls and from them jump a [Pretty Cure]-team's worth of Dark-Type Pokémon: Bisharp, Shiftry, Crawdaunt, Cacturne and Skuntank.-

Me: Well, Piper. You did great! Return for now!

Piper: <Thank you, Ian!>

-Ian calls Piper back to her Poké Ball.-

Me: Evelyn... I think it's time to even the odds!

Evelyn: I'm ready when you are.

Me: Piku-chan, Oshawittle, Raru, let's go!

-Ian throws two Poké Balls and from them jump Oshawittle and Raru. Piku-chan then jumps off of Ian's shoulder and into battle.-

Evelyn: Kako, let's go!

-Evelyn throws a Poké Ball and out jumps Kako.-

Mirai: <Brother!>

Kako: <Let's show them what we're made of!>

Piku-chan, Oshawittle, and Raru: <Aye! Let's go!>

Hammerlocke Stadium Pitch

Raihan: Well well... Look at you all! You've come so far. To think, you started strong in Turffield and haven’t stopped powering through the Gym Challenge.

Turffield Stadium Lobby

Emilie: Mon Arceus! Her battle style is most impressive...

-Emilie takes a Poké Ball off her bag and looks at it with worry.-

Emilie: -thinks to self- Will I be able to do well in Galar? Will they accept me in this Gym Challenge?

-She then begins to worry even more.-

Emilie: -thinks to self- Will the 'Bolts know about this?

Ballonlea, Evelyn's House (Halloween)

Me: Hm... She hasn't responded...

Evelyn: -telepathically to Ian- ~Ian? What's wrong?~

Me: -telepathically to Evelyn- ~It's Kim... She texted me saying that she's leaving the J-Team...~

Evelyn: WHAT?!

Me: It's true...

Evelyn: And that's why you're worried, right?

Me: Of course! She's our friend. She was there when we made the wish on the Stormchaser!

-Evelyn recoils in shock. Ian was right! Kim's wish was one of the many that gave sentience to the Stormchaser. Why would Kim want to abandon that wish?-

Evelyn: Mom... A friend of ours is in danger.

Agnes: Kimberly Bond, right?

Evelyn: That's right!

Agnes: Well, in that case...

-Agnes looks around the area.-

Agnes: Say, Evelyn. What's that behind your ear?

-Agnes reaches behind Evelyn's ear and pulls out a Poké Ball.-

Me: Whoa! Sugoi!

Agnes: Impressive, is it not?

-Agnes spins the Poké Ball on the tip of her index finger.-

Agnes: I have been practicing sleight-of-hand since before I met your father. I had always wanted to be a magician, or even a witch, when I was on my journey.

-Agnes laughs and catches the Poké Ball in her left hand.-

Agnes: Anyways, if it's for a friend, I'll help you!

Evelyn: Arigato, okasan.

Agnes: You are most welcome. Now, without further ado... Come forth, my wings of night!

-Agnes throws a Poké Ball into the air and from it appears a Murkrow.-

Agnes' Murkrow: <You call, my lady?>

Agnes: I need you to go out and search for Kimberly Bond! She's a friend of my daughter's. She will give you the details.

Evelyn: Right.

-Evelyn gives the Murkrow a description of Kimberly Bond.-

Agnes' Murkrow: <Say no more. I am on my way!>

-Agnes' Murkrow flies out from Ballonlea in search of the friend Evelyn had described.-

Agnes: And report back when you find her.

Agnes' Murkrow: <I won't let you down!>

Wyndon Stadium, VS Hoops

Me: Let's have some fun! Oshawittle, I choose you!

Evelyn: Axon! I choose you!

-Ian and Evelyn throw their Poké Balls, and from them appear Oshawittle and Axon, however now... Axon wears a diadem with Alakazite attached to it.-

Oshawittle: <Ready when you are!>

Axon: <Ready for battle!>

Wyndon Stadium

Evelyn: Not always, Hoops! Axon, Teleport! Then use Psycho Cut!

-Axon's eyes flash gold for a split-second and then he disappears, evading the potentially dangerous attack. When he re-appears, he surrounds one of his spoons in a psychic glow and makes a slashing movement with it, unleashing a cutter of pure psychic energy at Sud.-

Me: Oshawittle, use Swords Dance!

-Oshawittle draws his shell blade and proceeds to perform a hypnotic dance before raising his blade to the sky. He then glows with an aura of power.-

Oshawittle used Swords Dance! His Attack raised sharply!

Split Decision Ruins

-Reading the sign on the door-

...I can't believe this.

To those wishing to enter, you must collect the three emblems of our counterparts.

Cam: <Here I thought we'd be done with fetch quests.>

We've been fetching since we entered the Hall of Fame.

-Shrugs-

Best get a move on then.
