Lumiose City (South Boulevard)|Early Afternoon [51]

"Brilliant idea," Looker complimented the plan as he caught on to where Vitaly was going with his thoughts.

"So what would be the ideal plan, then?" Giovanni tried to coax the rest of the plan out of him with a smile.
"I'm eager to get to somewhere more defensible."

The approval of the older men had startled him a moment, and he was almost glad when Miranda spoke up to ask, "I don't see how having them come after us helps. Unless you have some kind of ambush in mind?"

"Not an ambush, my dear, but close! A distraction." Looker took over explaining the finer details, and Vitaly let him answer the question. "There's no way of knowing who or what or how many, exactly, is in that tower; just that they're clearly not paying attention. But the rest of the thugs in this city are going to notice the carnage we left behind eventually, and if we have a small group causing some mayhem elsewhere, then they'll deploy people. It'd probably behoove us to get a little closer to the Tower first, before splitting up, and of course, we also need to decide who's going where."

Afterwards, Vitaly explained the finer details of his distraction idea, including how this distraction should bring Ness and Raist out where they could be rescued. Since the Pokemon were often used as canon fodder against other Pokemon, then a Pokemon causing problems would be the perfect bait to bring them out. Here he better explained what they would be looking for: A Houndemn, which was a pokemon that looked like a Houndoom but with more bones and bigger, and a Delphox.

Siyal volunteered to be part of the distraction; his presence would once again aggravate the locals, and with their ground-type trump card gone, they'd have to hope that Ness's dark typing would work in their favor. Of course, he knew that it wouldn't. Ness was far too timid to actually attack Siyal of all things. The other reason he was going was that he would make getting Jude's Pokemon to come along so much easier. They would be wary of new people, of course, and Vitaly really needed to be part of the group breaking into the tower. He also offered to give the two humans going with him a lift if they needed it.

Once the plan had been figured out, they started heading towards the tower again. Unfortunately, a collapsed building and a fallen tree blocked their current path, so they turned around to try another route. Drizzt and Siyal's ears perked as they picked up on something, but before they could warn the others, even the humans could hear what it was. An Army truck. Vitaly cursed under his breath as he backed away with his arm out to prevent someone from accidentally going around him, and he followed Looker into a nearby shop.

Vitaly grabbed Pelor off of Siyal's back as Siyal ducked into the door. He hadn't figured out his ghostly form enough to know how to phase through walls yet. Unfortunately, his fire, though dim in comparison to his flames as a Rapidash, still gave off a glow. Vitaly's eyes glanced over the windows, and thankfully, most of them were boarded up. Even when night fell, they wouldn't be compromised by the "living" light source.

Once everyone was inside, Vitaly remained tense as he listened for the sounds of the car. He nearly jumped and dropped the Larvesta when Looker said, "I suppose we'll be here awhile. We have no way of knowing how long that truck will be hanging around the area..."

Deciding it was safe enough for now, Vitaly deposited Pelor beside Siyal, and ruffled the fluff on the Larvesta's head to help him relax a little. Turning to face Looker, all he could say was, "I dunno. We probably want to keep guard... just in case." Granted, that was already the plan; Drizzt's eyes were very much on the door, and his feathered ears were on alert. "... Though if they're just driving through to go back to their base, we're probably safe here for the night."

((Honestly I'm not having any better luck than Gio, I'm sorry. Everything I have is just reactionary so it's only a couple of sentences at best. Skip me for now, unless I think of more to edit in later. I should have more once we move to the next day though.))

Lumiose City - South Boulevard - Early Afternoon

"I dunno. We probably want to keep guard... just in case." Looker nodded, noting Drizzt was way ahead of them in that department. "... Though if they're just driving through to go back to their base, we're probably safe here for the night."

"I definitely hope so. I'd aid us a lot if their upset over this afternoon doesn't become an issue until tomorrow," he sighed, slinging his bag off and sitting down, wincing a little. Wow, he hadn't realized how sore his feet were until now. "It would be nice if we didn't have to create a new scene and could just use yesterday's to kick off tomorrow's plan..."

Reaching into his bag, he dug around inside. "I suppose now is a good time to eat. We have quite the day ahead of us-"

Having glanced up while rooting around in his pack, he blinked. "Tomorrow..."

The thing that caught his eye was a display case, the firelight from Siyal bouncing off a glittery object within. Looker had half been expecting a stone of some sort; maybe they'd sheltered in a jewelry store, or one of those stores that sold evolutionary stones.

But no, it was a... pokeball? A glittery pokeball. Looker glanced around, spotting a number of shelves with pokeballs sitting on them. Special ones resided in display cases. There were even a few bookshelves and a few chairs for people to sit in. Maybe to provide something to read while waiting for a store clerk to help them? He tilted his head a little.

"Huh. I didn't know there were special stores just for pokeballs."

"I definitely hope so. I'd aid us a lot if their upset over this afternoon doesn't become an issue until tomorrow," Looker agreed as he sat down and swung his bag off his shoulders. Vitaly noted the wince, and felt a little bad for the older man. "It would be nice if we didn't have to create a new scene and could just use yesterday's to kick off tomorrow's plan..." "I suppose now is a good time to eat. We have quite the day ahead of us-" Looker started to forage around in his bag as he continued talking, when something caught his eye and stopped the train of thought. "Tomorrow..." Curious as to what had distracted Looker, Vitaly wandered over to look. It was one of the stranger pokeballs that he had heard about from Father Jude. He hadn't been able to see a lot of the ones he had talked about, but he knew they were a thing. The Father had even helped him get a Dusk ball for Drizzt, and explained Pelor's Luxury ball and Lidda's Premier ball. "Huh. I didn't know there were special stores just for pokeballs."

Vitaly could sense the obvious question, but his limited experiences with stores had all happened after the Epidemic had started. Giovanni and Miranda were much more likely to have answers to the question, and hoping they distracted Looker from the fact he didn't give a response, he walked over to a short book shelf and pulled out a catalog. He couldn't get a good look at it from where he was, so he went back to Siyal and Pelor to settle down. The two older Pokemon didn't really have much to add to that conversation either, so instead, they looked over Vitaly's shoulder to glance through the book with him.
