Shenron nodded to Felix. "Indeed, until we have eyes upon him we must assume he is in danger and near death... This Floatzel clearly does not understand the rule of the epidemic. Living do revenge, dead do not" He turned to Seek hearing the conflict with Uxie. He was curious why the Legend hadn't reacted but his explanation made perfect sense. His psychic prowess would've snapped the kit's neck without much effort. "Careful with your tongue kit, it would not bode well to gain the ire of the being of knowledge. We need all the help we can get if we intend to rescue Eleroo..." Shenron shook his body ridding it of the rain water still holding his tail in a safe position to keep it dry. "None of us would've been fast enough to stop that Floatzel. Aqua Jet is only second to Extremespeed in terms of priority. Had we grasped even a hair of his pelt he would've been hurt" He turned towards the city grumbling quietly as he thought. There had to be somewhere they were holed up. Somewhere they'd keep him prisoner. But where? The Pokemon Center or Gym seemed likely. The PokeMart a close 3rd. They wouldn't simply hide out inside homes... His grumbling getting deeper as he thought. Curse this rain for smothering out the scent. Curse the Floatzel for his actions. Just...
Damn it all...

The child retaliated with words but the fear sparkled clearly in her large blue eyes. His message had been heard, his actions justified. Her trembling wings had not the strength to strike him again but her voice had gained clarity. "What sort of god are you?!" Such a simply question from one who was ignorant. Some Legends disagreed with the title of god, his brother among them, but Uxie held no feelings for it either way if it made his role known. "I am The Being of Knowledge." He said simply with no emotion to his flat voice. "I birthed knowledge to those around me in ages long past."

It was true humans had been his target and unfortunate that they had declined, but his gift lived on in the beings around him and those humans that survived to this today. Was this no longer common knowledge? Was his flight forgotten in the passing eras, or was the child merely uninformed of legendary heritage? Such idle thoughts would have to wait as Seek continued to go off on her previous rampage.

"Tell me, Uxie, are you going to help us? Really. Why are you even here? You act high and mighty but you've done nothing. Its like your not even there! So, do tell me; do you even know where their stronghold is. And I mean specifics- the building, entrance, numbers. Do you know anything at all or are you nothing but a big fraud pretending to be useful? Cause really, if you aren't going to help then what use are you."

With a twitch of his twin tails the pixie felt the same anger from before return. Unlike previously, however, he had complete control of himself and remained calm in the face of such an irritant. She knew nothing, she was nothing. A pawn in his path. Such a small, insignificant being would not be recorded in his quest and should not be allowed to rile him.

Shenron spoke before he did, the wise dragon acting as a voice of reason. "Careful with your tongue kit, it would not bode well to gain the ire of the being of knowledge. We need all the help we can get if we intend to rescue Eleroo.." Relaxing his tails the Legend soothed himself with the knowledge that at least one of these Pokemon held the proper respect a legend deserved. While he believed the brazen child would learn in time Uxie was not disillusioned, and he knew today was not that day.

"I am here of my own accord, following my own agenda. I made it clear from our first encounter I am here to observe, not interfere. If it's information you seek you need only ask."

Eleroo 151 || Seek 143


Seek did not understand, no, she refused to understand or accept Shenron's reasoning. What help could it possibly give them when it'd done next to nothing so far? Digging her claws into the mud she wanted to scream, to yell at them all and damn them, but all her energy had been sapped in her desperate chase. Being of knowledge.. What use was that if it never told them anything? If the Floatzel took off running at the first sight of it? If anything it was dead-weight; caring only for itself and putting in only the most minimal effort for the group. Her blue eyes scrutinized its every curve. You're no god of mine.

"I am here of my own accord, following my own agenda. I made it clear from our first encounter I am here to observe, not interfere. If it's information you seek you need only ask." While Seek couldn't say she was expecting much from her request the frustration she felt from its response boded poorly for getting anything out of it. "I just asked you. How could that be any clearer?!" She barked tensely, exasperation edging her voice. Was everyone taking crazy pills?! Everything was suddenly backwards; the good guys being cursed for killing an undead, an unjustified kidnapping, a legend being worthless. What was she supposed to do when nothing made sense anymore? Huffing her frustrations the Aiveon looked at the other two Pokemon for input. She didn't know what she was hoping for as Shenron was still struggling from his soaking and Felix was gathering up items for some reason. I call myself a leader, but what can I really do?

The icy chill in her bones started to sting again, and she knew standing in the freezing rain was no help. Gazing at their prior shelter all she can see if the massive hole the Tropius had made. The space beyond, the place they had rested and ate the last day, seemed so different with the exposure of the chewed up wall. Cringing, she realized just how bad it must have looked to the Floatzel. Not enough to cause such an irrational act, but enough to be mad at them. Though her body felt frozen to the core Seek knew the wind and rain exposed building wouldn't do that much for them anymore. We should have left when we had the chance. Why did she delay? Why did she wait to eat instead of taking the food with them? Eleroo would still be here. No matter what happened to them it would be better than this.

Gritting her teeth Seek turned herself around. If she thought about that any longer the tears would return. With a deep breath she brought herself back to the present and dared to pry for more information. The so called 'being of knowledge' no longer deserved eye contact in her mind, so she spoke without so much as a turn of her head. "Where is their headquarters?"

Shenron sat with his nose twitching. Thinking. Pulling on his remembrance of Eleroo's scent. Poison types often had a biting scent of wet metal with a heat behind it. Assuming they didn't smell of rot or chemical burns. But Eleroo's scent might be entirely different. Would he still smell of kit innocence? Soft puppy breath and milk? Shenron's lip pulled back into a snarl as he imagined a tinier Eleroo toddling around on four unsteady paws flopping over at the slightest tap with all four paws out. Why? Why take the kit who had the least to do with any of this? That was why... Eleroo looked small. Vulnerable. Anyone else would've immediately began the assault when the Floatzel grabbed them. Shenron's snarl only deepened. Cowardice. He hated it. He looked at his claws scowling as he did. He was going to skin that weasel. Let him beg, try to rationalize and plead his case. Before Shenron meticulously broke every bone in his lower body and strung him up for the Mandibuzz to claim. Oh he would fight but that fight would quickly drain him. Everyone got tired eventually.
That's when the real torture began.

Felix had gotten everything prepared. All that was left was to get a location to where Eleroo was taken. "Where is their headquarters?" Yes, the question that would likely help them locate where Eleroo maybe placed at as their prisoner. Once they get the location, the real battle begins. Likely the Floatzel would fight back and possibly lead to either one of them being severely injured or killed. Shenron seems to know what he's doing, but regardless he could be in danger as well. If reasoning with the Floatzel doesn't work, then they may have no choice. They'll have to send him to meet the reaper himself. "Considering that they'll expect us, we'll likely have to fight our way through. Though I don't consider fighting to be on the list of things I like doing, this is given as a no choice. Here's your berries Seek. It should be evenly distributed. Also here's yours Shenron." Felix had divided the berries evenly between them. Uxie for some reason won't help fight them to rescue Eleroo, but Felix knew why. A being of Knowledge has no place on a battlefield unless things was truly desperate.

Felix couldn't help but feel that they're going to need a lot of luck on this point. If they are to succeed, then they'll need to work as a team and keep in communication with each other. "Shenron, you have my thanks still. If there's anything that's troubling you, I can listen to what you need to let out." The sylveon said as he placed his ribbon like feeler on Shenron's arm. True, he didn't understand much of charizard anatomy or what they think, but it is always worth a try. Even then, they are an interesting species that Felix would like to know more of.

"I just asked you. How could that be any clearer?!" Would she ever learn anger is not the answer? Temper temper. If the child could understand business conduct, or at the very least have patience, then she would realize the world lay at her paws. It was not his job nor concern to teach her, but shifting her path in the right direction was acceptable.

"Perhaps you should try being more polite with your request." He suggested, his flat voice lacking snark though it was firmly implied. The Nebula being paused, her thoughts seemingly elsewhere as her gaze flitted around them. Was she weighing her options and seeking a way out of using proper manors? Perhaps she thought better of those choices, as her inevitable inquiry was collected and concise. "Where is their headquarters?"

Pleased, the legend offered what insight he could on the matter. "The location with the highest probability, which should come as a surprise to none, would be the local Gym. Made from material naturally reinforced to withstand constant and intense battle it is a fortress within its own right. The Water-type specialty of this settlement should also bring comfort to those who are naturally marsh-dwellers. It's size, intended to hold spectators, would also offer space other structures do not." Truthfully, the intricacies of the human arena were unknown to him, but the logical explanations were within his right.

Eleroo 151 || Seek 144


With irritation burning beneath her feathers and a desire to scream held within her chest Uxie finally deigned her worthy of the answer she had asked for multiple times. "The location with the highest probability, which should come as a surprise to none, would be the local Gym. Made from material naturally reinforced to withstand constant and intense battle it is a fortress within its own right. The Water-type specialty of this settlement should also bring comfort to those who are naturally marsh-dwellers. It's size, intended to hold spectators, would also offer space other structures do not." Of course. This city has a gym? In hindsight she swore she knew that, or she should have at least considered it. It slapped her as an obvious choice, a literal stronghold stationed before them. In her defense the human's Pokemon never had the honor of fighting in a gym, or walking into one with her trainer beside her. That experience had been taken from her long ago, and thinking of the building supplies to create such a withstanding arena would have never occurred to her.

"Then that's where we'll go." She announced, though such a statement seemed unnecessary considering Eleroo's plight. Even if, for some ungodly reason, they did not accompany her the Aiveon had no choice but go. "Considering that they'll expect us, we'll likely have to fight our way through. Though I don't consider fighting to be on the list of things I like doing, this is given as a no choice. Here's your berries Seek. It should be evenly distributed. Also here's yours Shenron." "Thanks." Seek mewed, the appreciation genuine. Staring at the small collection of fruit she wondered what her transporting options were, as thumbs were out of the question, and quickly resolved to stuffing into within her cloudy mane. "If this is their shelter they will undoubtedly outnumber us as well. If we aren't careful we'll just be waltzing into a trap."

But it was more than that, wasn't it? Uxie had told them Pokemon shelter within the city. It was a refuge, and Seek realized there would likely be children, sickly, and old Pokemon there as well. If the Floatzel really took Eleroo into the heart of their domain they would truly be treading on sacred ground. If they were to shed blood or injure innocent Pokemon then the residence had all the right to strike them down. "This should go without saying," she started tensely, her voice uncomfortably serious, "but these are living Pokemon. There will be no killing or attacking the innocent." Her claws curled in the muddy grass. Unless they try first. They had taken Eleroo but they shouldn't stoop to that level. Her morals were never to be questioned but, if it meant saving Eleroo, Seek was prepared to do anything necessary.

Shenron annoyed huffing ceased feeling Felix extend contact and his temper cooled immediately. "Ah there's really not much other then... This" He gestured to the path the Floatzel had taken and his eyes were immediately downcast. "I understand why the Floatzel would take Eleroo, he's tiny but... I wish it weren't so common to snatch the weakest looking link in the chain" Not to imply Eleroo was weak not at all. Poison types possessed power that even the greatest fire types struggled to contain and utilize. The ability to melt a foe away. That was something most could not do. But Eleroo was a kit. Shenron shook his head looking at Seek and those words just seemed to slap the scales off his face. Don't... Harm them? Unless they struck first? Shenron had to bite back the noise of disbelief crawling up his throat. They snatched away a group mate. Snatched him away like a defenseless babe in the talons of a raptor. But they should be given the benefit of the doubt? Still? He wasn't going to argue.
It wasn't his place.

Now that they have a location, it would come to how to proceed without raising an alarm. First though he had to calm Shenron a bit more. They wouldn't get far if one of them was holding a horrible hate in their hearts. It wasn't Shenron's fault nor anyone's, it was just a Floatzel who seemed to think he's got control of something he doesn't. Felix did know the feeling though. "He captured Eleroo because yes, he's not strong and easy to take, but he would have taken any of us or worse. If we can convince him, then we wouldn't need to fight, but nothing can be ruled out. Seek would do everything to save her brother and its worth it to her to get him back. Even leaders can feel fear. Nobody is fearless." As much as Felix didn't want to admit it, even he is afraid of something. Nothing though can tell how much he would be afraid if they didn't do something to save Eleroo. He then lets go of Shenron's arm before returning to the others. "Uxie, what risks can come from this if they know we're coming?" The chances of Uxie knowing is unknown but he'd take anything that would help them find a way to get in unnoticed.

With his information heard and taken in the pixie felt no need for further input. He could see within the Aiveon's eyes that she was digesting his words. Was she already devising a plan? He wondered if she had learned from their last 'expedition' and would think through their invasion, but her ultimate conclusion took no thought at all as she announced, "Then that's where we'll go."

He thought the girl simple, her emotional state making for disconnected thoughts and pointless breakthroughs. Would this just be a repeat of their last trip with a higher casualty rate? She continued unaware of his judgements. "This should go without saying, but these are living Pokemon. There will be no killing or attacking the innocent." What a wishful thought. The young one made a fair point in that only the Floatzel had wronged them. All other Pokemon from that group had kept their distance, but would that point become moot when they breached their shelter?

The Legend's own musings had to be put aside as another question was thrust his way. "Uxie, what risks can come from this if they know we're coming?" Probing his own wealth of information Uxie searched for that which would prove useful. "I do not know the specifics, but this area has native grass, water, and poison types accompanying the omnipresent normal type. What type coverage we have has been severally crippled and they may defend accordingly. This is also their primary shelter; unless given time to evacuate children may be present and we can except a savage reception."

Eleroo 151 || Seek 145


Seek's tumultuous emotions were making her sick. The anger, grief, exhaustion, the indignation, she could throw up at any moment. Taking in a deep, rattling breath the Aiveon struggled to retain the calm she fought for. We'll get him back. That's all she had to remember. "Ah there's really not much other then... This." Shenron gestured to the path the Floatzel had taken, and while she had followed it too it looked starkly different from the air. Should they follow along the ground, or go by air? Had the rain along washed away the trail, what if the gym wasn't their hideout? She lost sight of it, what if he abandoned Eleroo and left him for dead?!

Question after question flew through her mind, overwhelming to the point she almost missed Felix's thoughts. "--If we can convince him, then we wouldn't need to fight, but nothing can be ruled out. Seek would do everything to save her brother and its worth it to her to get him back. Even leaders can feel fear. Nobody is fearless." Convince him? The youth could almost laugh at her own shame. That's what I tried to do. And look where it got them; a member down, precious few leads, and standing around getting soaked. Sure, she had really made a mess of it with her screaming, but they didn't attack the Floatzel. They didn't mean to destroy the building. They didn't want to stay in this town. She had tried her damnedest to resolve it peacefully.. and had nothing to show for it.

After another very direct question the legend gave another vague but somewhat helpful answer. Seek did not need to look at her team to know they were in trouble. The one type advantage they had was already hindering by the rain; a collection of water types would be impassable for him. Poison stalled another, and they had nothing for grass if Shenron could not get close. If only Asura was here.. Her knees felt weak, a weight pressing heavily on her shoulders. Was it up to her to take care of all the water types? Their ragtag collection was nothing compared to stuffed living quarters.. what could she do alone? We don't stand a chance.

Turning away from her team the Aiveon started to pad down the muddy path the kidnapper had made. Her blue eyes could not lift off the ground, and her words shook as she mumbled beneath her frosty breath. "...We can't win this." They had nothing. No upper-hand, no surprise element, no bargaining chip. Frightening children, walking into a slaughter, collateral damage? Even if they didn't kill them she could see no outcome that worked in their favor, that restored the one thing they wanted.. She paws wouldn't stop moving, desperate to see a that familiar lavender fur. This was her fault. She should have told them to leave immediately.. It wasn't right to risk the others anymore than she already had. "Maybe I should go in alone." She said grimly. "Maybe they'll go easy on a lone child."

Shenron frowned exhaling a puff of flame. "A savage reception you say? Such as the uncouth actions of snatching a kit away because we damaged an unoccupied building" He couldn't get up to make his words seem more sturdy and sure so he settled with his deep bone-rattling voice. "The Floatzel took a hostage and ran. Ran to others who are just as like minded as himself. He could've said his spiel and left but he chose to antagonize us and right this moment he is fearing. He knows now he's backed himself into a bloody corner already" Shenron shook his head and growled. "Many egg thieves try these filthy tactics. If we storm that city to regain Eleroo, he will attempt to return in exchange for us not tearing his pelt asunder" He waved his hand dismissively and looked at Seek. Really looked at her. Those words did not inspire faith. Nor confidence. "Are you sure? Do you know in your heart of hearts that this will be the case?" Shenron eased himself coming closer ignoring the sting of rain on his scales to look at her clearly.
"Don't go into the heart of the den of Luxray, unless you're certain you can make it back out..."

Felix couldn't believe that they'd go easy on a child. From the look of things, they'd not give a damn if its a child or not. Shenron was right though, it would be wise to do things as a group, they got Eleroo into this mess, they're getting him out of it. "Seek, I doubt they'd go easy on you. They'd just make you as another bargaining chip against us to do as they want. Yes, I know your young and spunky, but they are sworn to defend their turf at all costs. If Uxie won't help us rescue Eleroo, then forget about it, we'll do it ourselves. Uxie can't intervene in our affairs which is true, but by the legends I won't give up on you or anyone here and I won't give up on Eleroo." The Sylveon made his stand as he knew that they was on the same ship and Seek was the leader of this crew. Felix put his feelers on Seek and gave a smile to her. They can do this. All they need to do is play it smart and work as a team.

The Fairy type did feel the need to give support to Seek as needed and though he wasn't as skilled at fighting than he was at talking things out, but it wouldn't stop him. Even a flame can start from a single spark and that spark was their goal, rescuing Eleroo. "What do you say Seek, shall we crash their party and break down their walls?" The Sylveon wasn't sure if that was said correctly but he didn't care at this point, he wanted to save Eleroo as much as Seek.

While his information and assumptions were intended to inform and provide insight it seemed someone took it as fearmongering. "...We can't win this." The Aiveon's confidence fizzled away with one meager sentence. The anger and argument she had build left every fiber of her being as she stood trembling. Fear sparkled in her sky colored eyes, and her next suggestion sounded more like a desperate plea. "Maybe I should go in alone. Maybe they'll go easy on a lone child."

Both males seemed to hold the same misgivings, and Uxie could not help but agree as the tables turned against her. "While we do not know if the actions of one reflect the others, do you really think it wise to wander into a horde of possible child abductors?" A single Pokemon was less threatening, yes, but the young one would be a poor choice of ambassador.

Instead of arguing her point the legendary Pokemon instead pondered Shenron's prior thought. He turned to the dragon, his own musings disjointed from the current topic. "Violence only breeds more violence, but a threat could suffice in provoking a return."

"Whether its property or physical damage, a bluff used to barter the exchange with no intent to follow up might just be convincing."

"Are you sure? Do you know in your heart of hearts that this will be the case?" .... The cold rain had long since frozen her but the Aiveon could still feel a dreadful shiver run along her spine. "No," she confessed with a heavy, defeated sigh. "But what choice is there? This is my fault. I can't put you guys at risk too." If she had just made them leave at dawn this situation wouldn't exist. "Don't go into the heart of the den of Luxray, unless you're certain you can make it back out..." With her head hanging low Seek bit back the morbid response she thought of. Rain pooled off the edge of her helmet and dripped onto her sensitive nose. Flicking her head back over her shoulder the little drops went flying. "And are we so sure all of us will come back out? That they won't go too far?"

Her paws were itching, ready to sprint through the mud and leave her companions behind before they could talk her out of it. Felix tried to talk her down, his words shockingly compelling as her resolve broke down. He wont give up on me.. Was that what she was doing? She loathed to admit it but she cared about these Pokemon and didn't want to see them harmed by these inhospitable Pokemon. "What do you say Seek, shall we crash their party and break down their walls?" Clenching her teeth the young Pokemon did not know what to do. Digging her claws into the mud she prayed to know the right choice. "And what if we fail? What if we can't get Eleroo back? What if we can't get away and they toss us to the undead, or throw us back in the Marsh?" If only one of them got hurt for her shortcoming wasn't that better??

With an exasperated groan the Aiveon shook the water droplets from her pelt. Popping back onto her hunches she threw her paws anxiously over her muzzle. "What was the point" Her muffled words came as no more than a whisper. It can't end like this. They had come too far to be beat by Pokemon too pathetic to show themselves. "Violence only breeds more violence, but a threat could suffice in provoking a return." Her low hanging ears flicked upward, interest piqued as her blue eyes peer from between her paws. "Excuse me?" She barked back dryly. The Legend often talked in cryptic messages, but this one she did not understand. He wanted to attack the others now? "Whether its property or physical damage, a bluff used to barter the exchange with no intent to follow up might just be convincing."

"A bluff?" She echoed the pixie's words, the idea ringing in her head. "What could we possibly bluff with? Straight force isn't going to work. So... Stealing stuff? Luring undead in? Destroying these buildings they love so much?" The Tropius had done all the prior damage, and their prior venture appeared to of gone unnoticed.

Shenron chuckled in amusement at Uxie's words. "Of course, if we show how much this treacherous act has gained our ire then they may backpedal" His mind buzzed with ideas. How to best make the point known. "A damaged building... An undead in their likeness impaled upon a pike? Truly kit you must let your mind darken to understand. Think of what you fear most, what makes your pelt crawl with the anxious pricks of discomfort and fear of the unknown and project it onto them" Shenron looked to the city and gestured. "If there are young within the city limits there are denmothers, nothing frightens a denmother more then egg shells shattered upon the ground with signs of a struggle"

With another voice behind her the Aiveon felt their path shifting. "Of course, if we show how much this treacherous act has gained our ire then they may backpedal." These Pokemon, well, one Pokemon had struck them hard. They would have to double down with something much worse. But what could be worse than that? Kidnapping was no light feat, and doing so themselves was likely impossible. They had to be tenacious, agressive with their lie--! But her prior idea's felt shortsighted, and Shenron noticed. "A damaged building... An undead in their likeness impaled upon a pike? Truly kit you must let your mind darken to understand. Think of what you fear most, what makes your pelt crawl with the anxious pricks of discomfort and fear of the unknown and project it onto them."

Seek's muscles tensed up as her mind churning for possibilities. Their fake threat needed a very real fear behind it, almost like they were insane! With a rough swallow the Aiveon tried to dwell on the darkside. Punishments came easy when they benefited her, but this? This was a whole new beast that her emotional mind was struggling to work with. "If there are young within the city limits there are denmothers, nothing frightens a denmother more then egg shells shattered upon the ground with signs of a struggle." Staring at the dragon with wide eyes the youth struggled to accept what he was suggesting. "But.. wouldn't that make us no better than that Floatzel? Kidnapping, very young kids and eggs no less.." Her own experience came back with a cold shiver, and her breath quickened as she added, "That could scar those kids for life!"

But.. that was the point, wasn't it? They didn't intend on harming them, it was just a necessary step to save Eleroo. But the truama from her own experience said otherwise, that even the bluff would have lasting damage on those who were innocent. We have to take it further. With her darkside primed the tense Aiveon tilted her head toward the inconspicuous corpse beside them. With an eerie calm she dared voice a new thought. "The one thing everyone fears.. is the disease." Padding closer to it she could see the deep, severing wound the weasel had inflicted. "If there is a big portion of water types I wouldn't be surprised if part of that gym was flooded. We bring pieces of this Tropius and threaten to taint their water supply. It could compromise the entire shelter with the possibly of infection."

Placing her paw on the cold corpse the Aiveon didn't like either idea. Never would she of imagined herself to be that kind of Pokemon, to act so lowly, but she felt nothing as she finished off with, "If we can't find their nesting ground it's a solid back up. If we can, it'll bolster our threat if things go south."

Shenron scratched his chin in thought and nodded. "Yes... That would be a sufficient threat. Even if they wanted to say they could easily disinfect the water, the paranoia would never go away" He looked at the Tropius and nodded looking at his claws. "Allow me, I'll mince the meat and you can collect sticks to carry it. Its not a good idea to try to carry it barehanded or anything" Shenron stomped over to the body and looked at it among the litter of rubble and glass. Or maybe... Use glass? Shenron picked up a particularly large shard and looked at the Tropius. Wondering how it was in life... Was it kind? Was it courageous? Who knew... Shenron nodded and held up the glass.
"You'll be kind in Death, help us regain our companion... Please"

This talk of Psychological warfare was something that can inflict fear upon the Floatzel's mind. Felix never understood it that much outside of stories told by other pokemon, but actually doing it themselves? This could create a major fear amongst them. If there was any hope of making it easier for them to get Eleroo back, it had to be this. "If there is a big portion of water types I wouldn't be surprised if part of that gym was flooded. We bring pieces of this Tropius and threaten to taint their water supply. It could compromise the entire shelter with the possibly of infection. The Sylveon shook his head feeling that this wasn't okay and it was kind of low. Guess psychological therapy will have to be going into overdrive after this is all done. "Using the dead to create fear. Not an ethic way, but since that Floatzel wants to play with psychological warfare, then this is retaliation." Seeing that what Shenron was about to do, Felix couldn't bare to look. Defiling the dead was something unfathomable in his mind. They deserve rest regardless if they was once living or an undead that was slain.

Felix then got an idea with the weather and the tropius' corpse. "Seek, thing we can use the weather to our advantage since the lightning would create some effect to our retalitation?" The Sylveon asked. Thee was one last thing that would work as well. This was a big maybe but if they can get ahold of some liquid nitrogen, then they can use it to create a fog to throw them a curve ball to add to the fear. "If there is liquid nitrogen, we could probably dump it in the water to raise some fog. We need to make it to maximum fear." He said as he used his feelers to pick up some broken boards that was thin but strong enough to withstand some weight of the body.

"The one thing everyone fears.. is the disease."

The legend was colored surprised. He had not expected the child to go so far, nor for the others to agree to it so easily. Was it simply the progression of the world, that their fear would be transformed into a weapon for acquisition? Or was this a sign of moral breakdown? Such vulgarity. Todays youth, while stronger for it, were truly an extreme generation like none before them.

As the Charizard began work on the carcass Uxie positioned himself to watch in full. How would it handle diseased meat, he wondered, with claws, tools, or flames? Gripping a shard of glass from their prior incident he assumed it would be used to carve and slice through the thick hide. Even with adept fingers the process would likely be a messy endeavor.

"Perhaps a sack or pack of some kind would aid in transport? It would prevent loss of fluid and unnecessary spread of the virus. It would also serve to not show our hand immediately." It would no longer be a bluff if they carelessly infected the town, and their trump card would be spelled out too soon if their were seen with [and with only] skewered pieces. "Mayhap you should take the entire head as well. It would be a truly frightening reveal."
