-In the street-
<??? #1: "Sure. Just as long as you don't break this illusion.">
-To the north of the mountains hosting the Union Cave-
<Serperior: "All troops, ma-">
<Salamence: "General! Uh... M-May I make a suggestion?">
<Serperior: "... I suppose it couldn't hurt... You did ask first. What was on your mind?">
<Salamence: "I was just thinking... We incurred unexpectedly sharp losses coming this far today... Perhaps we should camp somewhere along this route and wait for additional reinforcements to arrive.">
<Serperior: "Hmm... Well... On the one hand... If we wait... That gives more opportunity for defenders to group up... On the other... We DID have a quarter of Overland Group B rendered unfit for duty today... We could probably afford to do some additional reconnaissance. To ensure that we will not encounter any further surprises of this nature... Very well then, I'll enact your suggestion.">
<Salamence: "Thank you, General.">
-To a Hydreigon-
<Serperior: "Send for reinforcements. Retrieve forces for an additional overland group.">
<Hydreigon: "Where shall I send for them, General?">
<Serperior: "Retrieve as many personnel as you can from Azalea without unduly weakening our presence there. Retrieve the remainder from Goldenrod.">
<Hydreigon: "Yes, General.">
-Now- Numbskull: -Has returned to the Entralink, and is chattering excitedly to anyone who will listen about what he did yesterday- Bone, bonebonebonebone, bone BONE! Bone, bonebone "BONE, BONEBONE BONE." Bone!
-MGMT, Felicity and Hades have hijinked their way to the Entralink-
<Hades>: <Phew! To think if we were to stay there any longer, we would be dead!>
-MGMT and Felicity nod in agreement-
<Felicity>: <Also, Numbskull mon. You BLEW THEM AWAY! Never have I seen so many moves with that amount of freshness in them! You guys shoulda been there! Numbskull here took out Napoleon and his croonies with his SWEET MOVES!>
<Hades>: <With the exception of that grumpy Marowak who applauded us before warning us to hi tail the heck outta there.>
<Felicity>: <That guy was...funny. He acted as if he was broken or something...>

Of course not. Blobble?
Blobble: -extending his mind towards Sabine's- <This won't hurt....now, tell me, are you or are you not with Lanius? Don't lie, now, because I will know.>
-To Blobble, via Aura-
<??? #1: "If I was, I wouldn't be out on these streets. If you're not already aware of what he does with female Pokemon and humans in his army, he apparently keeps them as slaves on those horrid ships somewhere out at sea.">

-The sun sets, heralding the end of another day. The wild Pokémon the Route are just beginning to turn in for the night, or only beginning to wake up in the nocturnal ones case. Some of the mons are slightly on edge, ever since they heard of how the invaders from a foreign land came and took the largest human city in the region.
Which was why they all began to panic when they started to heard a high pitched sound. Quiet, at first, but steadily growing louder as it came closer.
Before any of the wild mons could retreat to their homes, they are shocked to see a pure white Pokémon shoot past overhead, leaving a trail of flames in it's wake. Even though they only caught a brief glimpse of it, the mons are awed at the sight.-
"What was that?!"
"It was huge!"
"And so fast!"
"Was it a bird?"
"It looked more like a Dragon to me."
"Has it come to help?"
"I hope so..."
-Unaware of the mons in awe, Reshiram flies onward, spotting the ruins of Goldenrod City on the horizon.-
Reshiram: Now's the time. Unite? Can you hear me?
Unite: <Reshiram! Where have you been? I've been trying to get hold of you for days!>
Reshiram: My sincerest apologies, but we've been out of range! I can only speak to you if we are no more than a region apart.
Unite: <Oh, right. Sorry. So, where are you now?>
Reshiram: I'm in Johto.
Unite: <YOU ARE?!> -Smirks.- <...Perfect.>
Reshiram: Where are you now, Unite?
Unite: <I'm at the Nidoran Colony just off Route 33. I'll ask the Nidos to send out a signal. Try not be seen, okay?>
Reshiram: I shall try my best. Subtlety is not my forte...''
-Has put her mon in their Pokeballs and is holding a stolen C-gear-
Well, here goes.
-the world turns wavy for a second and Meddler's suddenly in the entra-link-
I knew it would work!
Blobble: <A no would have sufficed.>
(To our group) <They aren't with Lanius. React accordingly.>

-Fool lets go of Luke-
So what's happening here in Johto? I heard quite the commotion yesterday coming out of that Manhole.
-Using Aura, which probably comes out in a somewhat garbled fashion-
Well, since we got some new toys from the guy over in that building, we were going to go wreak havoc with Lanius' forces.
-Recognizes the voice-
Wait a second, is that you Audrey?

Shadow: <Will you just show yourselves already? I tire of mental conversations that I can't hear.>
-in the Entralink, Felis sees Meddler appear-
Felis: <And just who do you think you are?>
<??? #1: "Wait a minute... You're human, how are you talking to me like this? And how did you know that name? One of the Ampharos with you in that illusion called me that name in a dream...">
<??? #1: "Maybe you should explain after we get wherever it is that you were headed. It's not safe to stay in one place in the streets, illusion or no illusion.">
<??? #1: "Stop TALKING! If someone hears they could get suspicious!">

Hm? Oh, hi. my name's Meddler. This is the resistance base, right?
Riptide: -Arrives at the Entralink- This looks like the place... -Notices Vesuvius in the distance- ...! -Calls out to her- HEY! VESS! Vesuvius: -Looks up, hearing her name- <Thinking> Is that... -Walks over- Rip! It's good to see y- Riptide: -Pulls Vesuvius into a hug- Vesuvius: Oh! -Is a bit startled at first, as well as surprised (Riptide isn't usually the hugging type) but then returns the hug- -Muffled- Um... You're sort of squishing me. Riptide: Oops. Sorry. -Lets go- Vesuvius: It's alright. Anyways, how've things been going with you? Is Slouch alright? Riptide: -Grinning- Yeah! Better than ever! Vesuvius: Do you mean...? Riptide: -Nods- Vesuvius: That's great news! Do you know how it happened this time? Riptide: Well... No. I do have sort of an idea, though. -Explains the events of last night to Vesuvius- Aaand I'm thinking it might've been the awesomeness of the whole thing that brought him back. Just a guess though, and it's probably wrong. However it happened, though, it's great news. Vesuvius: It certainly is.

-Two houses and some nearby cars and trashcans had been set on fire some hours ago, now serving as temporary barricades by the fleeing resistance. Across a street in the western side of the city, all the members of a Nidorin@ squad that had [tried] to offer support to a Nidorino lay killed in combat, sprawled and spread around. The sole Nidorino manages to escape but has lost track of his human-
????#1 — <There he is! Get him!> — pawsteps follow.
????#2 — <Cast a Psychic!>
????#3 — <Stand down! All your co-conspirators are dead! Surrender!>
Nidorino (charges a Sludge Bomb) — <Try and get me! For U Frithrah!>
-The Nidorino stands backed against a parked car, fires the Sludge Bomb at one of the opponents who avoids it; when suddenly several Nidos and other Pokémon appear ganging up from the streets near the sea, launching elemental beams to cover for their ally. An [armored] Nidorino rushes up to his subordinate.-
Maestro Rize — <Hrayith anisth il!♦ more or less \"run here to breath / life\"> — manages to one-shot and dispatch an enemy Pokémon with a Shadow Claw.
Nidorino — <...Maestro!>
-The Nidorino joins the flurry of Nidos that escape to the southeast top speed, while Rize stands behind to ensure all the troops make the away, as some enemies emerge from the sea to pursue-
-Suddenly, Rize's ears pick something and he turns around, spreading his legs and hopping around right before some Razor Winds and Hyper Beams strike his location and follow him around-
???? — <Don't let them escape!>
???? — <Catch him at once!>
Rize (ears flicker as he pushes against a wall) — <Damn it... Where—?>
-Suddenly, Rize's senses tingle and right then a Haxorus crushes the wall right before him and steps in; before the Nidorino can do anything, the Haxorus grabs him and lifts him up with a lethal Guillotine attack-
Rize (in pain) — <....N-N..- Aaaaahhhhh!> — shakes head.
-The Haxorus smiles as he tightens his grip with a last pump of pressure... Rize explodes in purple sparks!-
Haxorus (blinks) — <Whu...?>
Real!Rize (leaps and swings down from Haxorus's head, looks up) — <Mistake!>
-With a swing and a swift motion of his horn, which glows blue to counter for egregious, seemingly ∞ damage, Rize cuts both of the Pokémon's legs open; the slash's explosive effect goes up the torso of the Pokémon, reaching his backbone and killing him [instantly]; the body is sent spiraling up the broken wall, bouncing on the roof and falling to the ground of the building, to limply skid up to the next street-
???? (looks from a distance) — <...! He didn't just do that!>
-Rize leers back, follows up and disappears in the smoke veil left by the shattered brick walls as some more troops attempt to Ember or Aura Sphere the area-
-At the Railroad, Vinollo, a Beedrill, some Nidos and Spinarak are finishing the cleansing of the railroad before any more troops can come. Saddened as he stares at the city, listening to the the cries and explosions in the distance, Vinnollo sighs to then return to the deceased body of the [Cinccino] leader-
Maestro Vinollo — <Your dominion here will end eventually. For now, lay rest...> — closes the Cinccino's eyes with his paw — <before being called by u Frithrah himself to answer for your blind allegiance.>
-Then the Nidorino hops and moves to the bushes, where the medics and a foreign Medicham are trying to heal a lethal wound the leader's friend Granbull has suffered, to no avail-
Granbull — <A-A-A-I can't make it...> — coughs blood — <Such... strentttt-tt-strength... hope it ss-s-ffices... to... liberate...>
Vinollo (smiles) — <We shall suffice... your lands will be retrieved back, your kits will live and spread. Don't worry...>
-The Granbull nods, barely maintaining conscience as the medics fail in every attempt to heal or at least stabilize his condition-
Granbull — <A pl... pl... pleas... to serve Frith...vaor~> — exhales with difficulty.
-Vinollo ponders for a moment about walking away; but his anger at the scene is overcome as he sees the Granbull faintly trying to reach for him; in a moment of mental clarity the Nidorino decides to stay with his friend-
Vinollo — to the Granbull — <Our pleasure. You have pursued freedom for our land, even when we didn't ask of you. Sainthe atha ma u Hrair, kan zaylanthe hray u vahrlien ma hyaones.♦ adapted to mean, more or less, \"My heart mourns with the Many, as my warren-friend stops running today.\" Requiescat in pace...>
The Granbull takes a look at his partner and smiles; although he does not understand the Lapine sayings to honor a fallen comrade, he does not need to. He only smiles and exhales for a last time.
Ninetales medic — <...He's gone... I think he couldn't even feel pain...>
Vinollo — <...Thanks.> — closes his friend's eyes with a paw.
-A moment of silence passes-
-Vinollo sads for a while before ordering that the bodies be sent to a nearby creek and buried there; as his subordinates comply with the orders, the Nidorino heads to the nearest ledge to take a look at the city-
-Suddenly, a small group headed by a Buizel walks in to the others, and the Buizel turns up to him-
Buizel supporter — <Hey! Nido in armor! We have to retreat, our troops are too tired to continue!>
Vinollo — <You can go, save the others. I'll go into the city...> — swings horn and walks away silently.
Buizel — <...Into? You're nuts!> — watches the Nidorino walk past the Railroad pillars.
-At the other side of the city, a pharmacy where some Nidoran and Nidorinos were hidden is ablaze, several kits and some guards burnt to death on the floor, while the few survivors make a run to the [east]-
-And some minutes later, the enemy troop responsible of that killing will turn around a corner to see a sole figure walking out of the inferno, and that will be the image and the pain that they'll take in as testament to their otherworldly journey to answer to Ho-Oh for their sins-
-A Xatu observes as several Nidoran, Wooper and Growlithe troopers go across the route in both directions. Amidst the flow, he locates a particular Nidorina and follows after her.
Xatu — <hey!> — swoops in — <You are Milite Roa, right? Follow me to the east, I have a message from the higher-ups.>
-At a junction-
Xatu — <Your presence is requested in the coast near the Pokéathlon building, before the sun comes out>

Felis: <Hm. Doesn't look like one of ours, but you can never be too careful. A meddler indeed. So, why should I tell you anything?>
Hmm... I'd like a tour of this sub once someone is available for that.
-Roa cocks her head and flicks an ear, then nods-
Roa: <All right, I'll be there. Thank you. Would you mind pointing the way? I'm afraid I haven't been there recently.>
-still trying to broadcast thoughts-
She's right....whatever we're planning to do, we should do it quickly.
So, what's the plan?
Well, for starters, you probably need more people. Also, my brother's name is Gamer, maybe you've heard of him. Not that I consider him my brother. Haven't seen him since I was ten. But mainly, I do not want the world to be run by a cat and a pig, okay?
Um... I have no idea. Wolf hasn't told me anything besides the fact that we're gonna try to take back Unova.
Where are we going? Well, we have some warships to capture or destroy, don't we?
Xatu — <It's that way...> — points to the southwest — <You must run until you reach the beach, then go south. You'll hardly miss the enormous stadium...>
-perches on a tree-
Xatu — <Oh and take this... hope you like dry food...> — offers a Wiki Berry.
-Rodríguez fetches the data from PEFE and passes it through a final filter, which reveals the camera takes from the Drifloon Cam, with enhanced and recolored scenes that clearly show the presence of flying Pokémon making use of Zoroark's Illusion Ability-
Rodríguez — That's it! If we can record these filters into powerful enough hardware, we will be able to see beyond those illusions in near-real time!
Rodríguez — ...But not even PEFE has portable visors with that capacity...
