Goggles: (happens to wander past the Flygon and overhears him talking in his sleep, somehow not noticing the three Pokemon robbing it) <Aww, a sand dream? Lucky guy...> (shrugs it off and moves on)
Kurma: -wathcing Goggles leave- That was close...
Grif: I don't think he's all there...
Jazz notices the petty theft, and immediately goes to wake up the Flygon at the stand
Jazz: <Wake up! Three mons just stole from your store!>
Yarn runs a flipper along his neck.
<Because it helps us see further away so that we can keep an eye on our flocks better? -And perhaps that's why your mother yells at you so much.>
The Flygon chitters groggily, opening his eyes slightly.
Flygon: <Not now, I want to play in the sand...Wait...>
He sits up, blinking wearly at the oddly colored Arbok.
<Somemon stole from my store?>
The Dragon type swings around, noticing that much of his stock of rare items is missing.
< ... >
He then turns back to Jazz, letting out and angry buzz.
<WHERE DID THEY GO?!>
Booster Trio: -is fleeing-

Jazz points to the south — which happened to be to her right
Jazz: <That way! A Scrafty, a Blaziken, and a Torterra!>
-Is kind of wishing Fool was here right now, yet feels like events are constantly conspiring to keep them apart-
-stays under the bush; doesn't feel like talking-
(In response to this post.)
Ammy: Oh, hello!
Umbra: What are you all doing out in this desert?
Jemma: <Zzz...treasonous words...zzz...plant dog...zzz... mya~ >
Canon!Rex: Alright, I can give you my number as well. ...Although, I am rather curious as to whether the other Rex has the same number as well. *opens the Pokegear on his wrist, preparing to insert Silent's number*
Maitake: *squeaks in surprise, indeed losing his concentration*
-The image of Maitake is instead replaced with...-
Canon!Rex: *peering into the darkness* Yep...it's a dark cave alright.
Canon!Rex: *smiles* You seem to be right at home though, Ari.
Zubat!Ari: *flutters around near Rex excitedly*
Canon!Rex: Anyway, I thought this would be a good opportunity for us to work on some things. Ohm can use Flash to help us travel through caves, but it doesn't hurt to let others use their skills once in a while. I want to practice traveling using your echolocation.
Zubat!Ari: Skree? *lands on Rex's shoulder, looking somewhat bewildered*
Canon!Rex: Well, you know better than anyone, right? Some Pokemon don't like being exposed to bright lights. It makes them confused and irritable.
Canon!Rex: So, if I learn how to follow you in a cave by having you guide the way, I can possibly avoid causing any Pokemon discomfort. I'll need to be careful where I'm walking in the dark, though, but you can probably help with that, right?
Zubat!Ari: *flutters, making a face that more or less says "Sure, why not?"*
Canon!Rex: Great! Now, let's see what this cave has to offer. I heard that there are Pokemon with unusual abilities in here. ...Ah, but I won't be able to see them, will I? Hmm...this could be a bit of a problem...
???: *from deep within the cave* WOBBUFFET!
Flygon: <I see. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some thieves to catch.>
With a flap of his wings, the Flygon leaps out of his stand and flaps off in the direction the shiny Arbok had pointed.
Right before the group leaves, Alli puts a picture◊ on the refrigerator
Jazz: <I'll watch over your store until you come back!>
She then notices a Shock Ruff, and struggles to resist taking it for herself.

Grif: He's gaining!
Sari: Kurma! Use Seed Bomb!
Kurma: Hmph! Take this, Dragon ruffian!
-Launches a Seed Bomb behind him-
(In respose to this post.)
Ammy: You seem suspicious... We're looking for my parents!
Umbra: Know where a kingdom ruled by a Volcarona is, by any chance?

The Flygon carefully watches as the explosive seeds arc through the air towards him. With a deft movement, he rolls to the side, easily evading the seeds, which explode harmlessly behind him.
Flygon: <You hoodlums are going to regret stealing from me! I didn't evolve into a Flygon by gaining experience from selling items, you know!>
It would have been a lot easier if he could've, though.
The Dragon inhales, then breathes a plume of Emerald flames at the fleeing trio.

Sari: -casts a Protect shield behind herself and the others- That only works once...
Random Tranquill: <Hey, do you have anything I might be able to use?>
Jazz: <Actually, I'm just watching the shop for the real owner while he chases down some thieves. You should probably just come back later.>

Woolly: <Oh, that's alright. It wouldn't be very nice of me to ask for something for saving you're life, anyway!>
Woolly gives the bird a smile, then strokes his feathers gently.
<Just don't go anywhere near Violet City. For the sake of your heart.>
Off to the side, Yarn blushes at the Random Nidoran's compliments.
Yarn: <Why, thank you! But we probably shouldn't fight. For one, I don't really like fighting, and two...well, I would probably beat you easily.>
Hearing a few Mareep bleat in surprise, he glances over to see a certain Nidorina scold her kits for fighting, before glancing over at him.
Darn, Protect. Not a move that you see very often. Most Pokémon couldn't learn it unless they used a TM, and they weren't easy to come by.
Looked like these guys were no mere thugs.
Flygon: <Maybe this will trip you up! Okay, that was lame.>
Cringing at his own bad pun, the Dragon spins in mid-air, then slams his tail down hard into the floor, the ground cracking, then splitting apart on impact.
-Aurora and Crescent are still moving through Lodestone Ruins, however, the frequency and toughness of the Magnemite and Magneton seems to be increasing-
Aurora:-Oneshots a Magnemite- <They seem to be getting stronger.>
Hex:-K Os a Magneton with Flamethrower- <Yes, we must be getting close to Straw's house-
-Crescent stops in his tracks-
Crescent:<Um, I think we're here.>
-Crescent stops in front of a small cave that appears to harbor a few Magnezone. Upon closer inspection, one can make out the the foundation of a house-
Aurora:<Magnezone. The elite guard no doubt.>
Hex:<They must be guarding their treasure in there.>
Crescent:<Let's get moving then!>
-A bolt of electricity flies over Crescent's head, barely missing-
Magnezone Guard Ω:<BZZZT! INTRUDER! BZZZT!>
Booster Trio: -is tripped up- AAAAH!
Kurma: Curse you, lame puns!
(In response to this.)
Umbra: Excellent! Come on, Ammy, we're close!
Ammy: Yay! ^_^
- They fly off in the direction the Kecleon indicated.-

Goggles: (singing) <I was once a treehouse, I lived in a cake, but I never saw the way the orange slayed the rake...>
Chase: (flies over) <Done with my part of the prepartions. How about you? Ready to explore another dungeon?>
Goggles: (nods) <Uh-huh! Let's go!>

With the thugs stopped dead in their tracks, the Flygon lands in front of them, then begins to beat his wings rapidly, counjuring up a vortex of sand.
Flygon: <Now to keep you from going anywhere!>
With a loud buzz, the dragon flings the whirling vortex of sand at the three, trapping them inside it.
Booster Trio: -trapped by Sand Tomb- ARGH
-after much flying, Umbra, Ammy, and the guards come across an amazing sight-
Umbra: By Giratina...
- Before them is the toppled remains of a massive tower, but instead of being left to rot it has been repurposed into a massive castle, teeming with desert 'mons from various regions.-
Ammy: It's beautiful!
Umbra: So, there IS life in this desert...
-They fly towards an apparent entrance, but are blocked by two guards, a Darmanitan and a Sandslash-
Darmmaitan: HALT! You can only see Queen Jenna when invited!
Umbra: Jenna? Why does that sound familiar?
Ammy: But... I may be her daugther! Amaterasu!
Sandslash: Wait... You're her?!
Darmanitan: Hmmm... Ptolemy, scan these two.
- A Claydol emerges and scans Umbra and Ammy for any hostile emotions towards the Queen-
Ptolemy: They're good.
Darmanitan: Very well. If you are who you say you are the queen will be thrilled to see you.
-Umbra and Ammy fly through the entrance, and see, among various royal servants, a Volcarona sitting on a throne-
Ammy: ...Mom? Is that you? It's me, Amaterasu!
edited 3rd May '12 2:14:00 PM by Umbramatic
Jenna: <Amaterasu? You're alive!>
-the Volcarona leaps up from her throne and flies toward Ammy-
Jenna: <We've been looking for you for so long!>
