The Great Marsh|Afternoon
43

Asura picked him up as gently as he could as Felix was trying to keep himself from hurling on the floor. This was truly the worst he's had. Seeing that no bag was of any use, it was either find a bathroom or some other place, but even then the smell would just make things worse."We should at least get to a different room." As Asura turned the corner searching for a bathroom, Felix just dangled there helplessly as he was doing everything in his power to not vomit either on Asura or the floor along the way. "Ugh, I really *gags* hate this." Unfortunately there wasn't a clue to any bathrooms or restrooms which made the situation more or less gross. Hearing the pitter patter of rain though did give him an idea of a better place to do it so that it wouldn't make the area he vomits at smell horrible. However, whatever was out there before might still be around. Obviously he didn't like either option, but it was one of those pick your poisons and no matter what he chose it would lead to something else either something smelling his  vomit or inviting a stranger into the hideout.

His mind was made up and without a choice in the matter. It came out and coughs in between that made it quite unappealing. Tears had swelled up as he took deep breaths trying to catch his breath in between. Finally he had nothing else and it was out of his system for the time being. The Sylveon shook his head as he just felt simply awful. "I think I'm done *cough* for now." The smell just made him not want to be in the same room as it. One thing did come into his mind is if they found the medicine yet or if they ran into trouble. If only he wasn't ill then they wouldn't have been delayed. It is what it is and he wasn't about to give up so easily to an illness. Weakly, Felix moved away from the vomit on the floor and  tried to keep himself from thinking about it. Moving away from it just enough though for Asura to pick him back up.

Felix felt tired again and after all that, he'd rather take a nap. "Okay Asura, lets go back. *cough* Get some water and take a nap.*cough* Maybe they'll be back when I wake up." In all honesty, he'd rather sleep close to a warm fire and listen to the sound of wood crackling in the fire and listening to jazz on his trainer's radio. Though it would be a great idea for him, that time however is long gone and nature's sounds have became the new normal, but perhaps that there's something that they could use in the place to liven it up a little.

❖ Pastoria City + Afternoon + 46 ❖


The rumbling sensation was quick to escalate. The presence of another being fluctuated as it grew rowdy and fluttered like a panicked animal. Had it sensed them upon the rooftop or realized it's own confined situation? The meaning was moot as the bird burst from within and laid its eyes upon them as an enraged predator. Rain instantly hit its feathers and brought forth the sound of heavy wing beats that sounded even above the storm as it swooped. Uxie dodged, moving closer to the rooftop as a frightened wail tore through his eardrums. "Run. RUN!"

Uxie did not understand; she had charged the Floatzel like a Mamoswine but fled from one tattered bird in an unfavorable battlefield. The bird turned to give chase as she run without thought, and with a quick series of psychic bursts the Legend fought to draw its attention back. Seek's actions were not their concern; keeping this undead stationary, quiet, and downed was. When the Staraptor dove at them again it had prepped an attack. Energy flowed over it as it picked up speed, target unknown as it arched between the group.

"Bitch...! Eleroo, Uxie, GO!"

R'hia had drawn her weapon, and though fallen was prepared to stand her group. Oh? The human intended to fight alongside him? Daring to be impressed the legend could only assume that her survival all this time was not solely based on the skill of her Pokemon team. Precautionary flight was always a Legend's preferred method but Uxie was not about to be stood up by mankind. Floating toward the structure the bird had erupted from he let his jewels take on a glow and release a series of stars in his Swift attack.

The shimmering stars flew and met their mark with no skill required. Damage was not his intention, but having drawn its attention the Legend made sure to hold perfectly still. The bird of prey gained speed, seeing him as food as it extended its talons in the last few moments. Uxie was ready, and faster than one could blink teleported a few meters off to where his companions were. It had no time to react and crashed in a heap of discolored feathers.

Injury was unclear within its undead state. It lay screaming for several moments before beating its wings to take off again, the motions jagged and uneven from its heavy body. Defensive drops. Even a failed Close Combat was a hazard to oneself. "Aim for the wings and joints." He instructed, knowing the face, chest, and thighs would prove too dangerous on such a predator.

Pastoria City || Afternoon [Storming]
Eleroo 120 || Seek 110


Battle experience was a necessity in this epidemic, and while Eleroo had been taught the basics by his trainer so long ago applying those skills was always a struggle. Naturally timid, his instincts always told him to run or hide, and as the bird dove across the rooftop at them all he could do was press his belly against the wet ground. Wings. Of the Pokemon present he was the only one who could not fly. What could he do? Fear shook his very being as he trembled from his low position. Backing up he tried to move away and put space between him and the decisions he had to make. Im no fighter.. If he stayed he would just get in the way.. If he tried he'd just be a nuisance...

The loud call of the bird forced the kit's eyes to lock on it as he charged them once again. Terror surged beneath Eleroo's pelt as his muscles froze up, keeping him rooted to the spot and completely vulnerable. Pain felt imminent, but Uxie made a move that was almost more frightening. It attacked before making himself clear bait, and the bird followed like a moth to flame. The crash was enough to make the kit jump, and with his muscles responsive once more he scurried toward R'hia.
His thoughts fired rapidly. Why had she not sent out a Pokemon to help them? Could her weapon really defeat something with wings? Would he just be in her way? What made Uxie so confident, yet so reluctant to help? Where was Seek... what would she do? "Aim for the wings and joints." The Legend instructed them, but Eleroo didn't feel the least bit able to comply. His paws worked the ground, scratching vainly at the hard roof surface as the bird flopped before them.

We should run. That's all he was good for. Maybe.. maybe if he fled it would give chase, and allow the others time? A rough swallow knotted up in his throat at the mere idea of being prey. Again, he took a step back, putting space between him and the human. Without Seek he was nothing. No confidence, no will, no use. She'd be ashamed. Guilt throbbed in his heart. She may have defected but that shouldn't effect him like this. Biting back his own fears the Radeon felt his fur grow hot and sodden at its deepest layer. He had to do something. Swiping his tail across the roof the fearful child charged forward. Adrenaline pulsed through his veins as he approached the bird and came to a very sudden stop. He hissed, spreading his jaws like a spitting Seviper and spat a stream of Toxic toward the birds wings. What am I doing?

The bird had not fully recovered itself but was not about to let some pest stop it. Thrusting said wing before itself it knocked the Radeon away with a sturdy yet rotten wing. Eleroo gasped, feeling the pressure in his throat as he was tossed back. Within the fraction of a second though, he felt it; a stabbing pain radiating forward, digging into his neck and outward to the wing that struck him. The faint glow of his necklace was all too familiar- the Toxic Orb had been activated, but for once he was not the victim. Falling back in a heap Eleroo quickly jumped to his paws, moving just fast enough to both see and hear the bird scream as toxins traveled through its wing.

"It-.. It's poisoned!" He gasped, but what he could see did not match what always happened to him. Fluids dripped from its feathers, burning away the rotten bits as it sunk down toward the skin. The bird writhed, thrusting its wing about in agony. Eyes wide, Eleroo could not look away from the horrid sight. His voice came as no more than a whispering whimper. "I.. did that?"


((No Seek this post, and a Radeon's fur is toxic so whoo, I can finally play with that. Feel free to do whatever to it R'hia. :3 Its mostly a distraction/add in, as no city can stay constantly clean, when with a crew going about. The whole fight should be fast, as I don't want to drag the team being apart any longer than it already has been.))

Great Marsh|Afternoon (87)

Shenron watched them go and waddled on all fours looking for a bag. He might not know the place too much but he knew how a building was laid out. Trash bags or grocery bags often sat in the kitchen area... Shenron rooted around some knocking over empty cans of tram oil and souvenirs. He found a few grocery bags among the clutter along with a stained map. Too bad he never completely mastered reading... Shenron stepped back tensing up hearing a squeak under his paw and lifted it. It was a Croagunk toy... One that you'd squeeze for stress or let a Growlithe play with. He looked around making sure nothing heard the squeak before scooting it away where it wouldn't be stepped on again. "It is... They have been gone a while... It warrants some concern but not a lot... Assuming they ran in to no trouble" Shenron brought the bags back and sat down watching out the window. Nothing was moving around but he was suspicious. There were too many water types in the Marsh that would be drawn out by the sweet siren call of rain to not be.

❖ Pastoria City + Afternoon + 47 ❖


Uxie could wager on either of his fighters assisting with a follow-up attack. For different reasons they were apt to hesitate, to formulate plans and their own strategies, but both had the same probability of striking. Keeping low Uxie watched the bird struggle from its own failure when the younger of the two took the lead. He charged recklessly, stopping roughly against the coarse, wet rooftop to strike from a short distance. Was this his strategy?

The bird moved, swiping a wing toward the Radeon. The Legend could have intervened, he could have moved the child before deep damage was done, but he watched with a curious eye as the Staraptor stumbled with fresh wounds. Beneath the hum or rain he could hear a sizzling fry and smell the taint of burning flesh. Toxic did not work this fast; the bird had caused its own injury once again. "I.. did that?" Eleroo thought aloud, and once more the Legend had to wonder just how long these children had had adult bodies.

Flapping and struggling against its festering skin the Staraptor was hardly the predator they had once thought it to be. It's maddened eyes were staring blindly, not even focusing on the opposing Pokemon. Uxie stilled his movements, interest growing as he watched the beast. Its threat level had already been reduced by a few simple strikes, yet its undead nature was overpowering any commonsense and instinct to flee. This was no longer a battle; it was an opportunity.

With a wave of his tails the Legendary Pokemon released a few more stars in his Swift to gain its attention. Steadying its talons the bird of prey turned its massive head toward him to screech, but the pixie had predicted this move. In fact, he waited for it. With the others out of the way Uxie held his breath and grew very still. There was a pause, a moment fit for something dramatic, and slowly he opened his real eyes. The undead caught his gaze and an intensity happened in the flash of a second.

Time seemed to freeze, within his golden eyes Uxie saw the memories of the bird. They were recent, it in its prime with its mate and chicks. Memories of it hunting desperately to feed them all in the diseased world, and returning home to a nest ransacked by a pack of Sneasel. The sensation of grief overwhelmed him, the bird's vision of but one surviving chick filling the memories. Emotions wracked its mind as it hunted for the predators, and the recollection started to warp and fade. Uxie saw the bird with its surviving offspring, both showing signs of disease as the visions decayed rapidly. Then, the trance broke, and the Legend's starry gaze fell closed once more.

His hover was jostled, tossing him a few inches toward the ground as he regained himself. The bird had also fallen, its chest flat on the wet rooftop as its purged memories left it in a daze. "It is vulnerable." He stated, feeling much of the same.

Pastoria City || Afternoon [Storming]
Eleroo 121 || Seek 111


What was she doing? Seek could hear her own heart pounding within the blood of her ears. It seemed so loud, so deafening, yet the sounds of the bird still carried over it as she ran. She had blundered down the fire escape, moving so hurriedly she slipped through the bars and only landed safely thanks to her own wings. Heat pulsed beneath her pelt, a blazing shame and panic as she bolted from the scene. Some leader she was. Keeping close to the side of the building Seek hardly felt the tug of the muddy ground as she nearly glided over it. All obstacles, weather or physical, meant nothing to her alarmed mind.

Stumbling around the building the Aiveon tripped, falling face first into the icy cold mud. Spikes of pain shot up her limbs and belly like toxins and she struggled against her faceless enemy until she was back on her paws. Backpedaling and swiping at her face the child felt very exposed, so very open to the sky and the birds it could contain. Shivering with cold and fright the kit tried to send sparks through her pelt but could not get it to do so with all the mud now on it. Shaking her pelt and pawing at her face until she could barely see Seek spotted some sort of dark gap above her and leaped to get some sort of cover within it.
The drop was further than she thought, the floor under her fall being smooth and hard. Again she pawed at her face, smearing the mud away from her eyes until finally she could see, and a new fright pulsated through her. Blinking in the darkness Seek could see she had gone through a broken window, recently so by the glass on the floor, and that this place was stuffed with all manor of salvaged items.


Eleroo cringed, visibly frozen to his spot as he watched the display between pixie and predator. What just happened? Uxie seemed hurt or dazed or something, and the Staraptor was even worse off. Was that a sort of psychic power, or show of legendary prowess? A shiver ran down his spine, freeing his paws from their roots as the kit shrunk low to the rooftop. What a frightening display despite the lack of bangs and booms. "It is vulnerable." The legend said with the same calm as ever, as though nothing had just happened. With a rough swallow Eleroo stared blankly at the stunned Staraptor. What was he supposed to do?

With his heart drumming in his chest the kit wanted nothing more than to shrink down and disappear. He knew his Shadow Ball, his favorite move, was useless against such an enemy, and the rest of his set left much to be desired. He could spray it again with toxins, cover more of its body with the poisonous fluid, but that wasn't much in the long run. Shaking his head to thrust the bad thoughts away Eleroo let out a small wail. He- He could do this! Charging toward the edge of the roof the Radeon veered at the last movement to charge the Staraptor. Its head turned, eyeing him, but they were not the same eyes of a deadly being. Closing his own eyes the child tensed up as he Tackled the larger bird and felt it get tossed back by his force. He was doing it! Adrenaline pumped through his system, and when it didn't retaliate he charged it again, and a third time before stopping to growl warily.

Was, was something wrong with it? After the last hit it started to react, standing and moving with awkward steps. It cawed, but the sound was small and unlike its battle cries of before. With heavy flaps of its tattered wings the bird tried to fly but barely gained any air and only made its steps more jagged. Eleroo whimpered, concern and confusing filling his jittering mind as he watched it drunkenly stumble and then fall over the edge of the roof in a heap of feathers. There was no attempt to properly fly, to attack, to save itself. No sound after the thud. Eleroo's heart hurt as it beat, unable to process whatever he was feeling. What just happened?

The Great Marsh|Afternoon
44

Instead of waiting for Asura to pick him up and bring him back, Felix walked back though he had a hard time keeping balance as he walked back. Still coughing and having a tough time keeping his strength up, the Sylveon finally made back into the bedding that he was once in. There he laid back down on the soft blanket. "Since they're still a while, *cough* I'll take a nap." The fairy type closed his eyes and started sleeping. It was there he would relax until they got back. However with the weather still dreary and the sound of thunder in between a ten to fifteen second gap, a dream would be a wonderful thing to entertain him in his sleep.

OoC)) Sorry for the short post I think it would be best to put Felix on Idle for the time being.
