Seek was right about that stuff. Guess only thing they need is to make the tropius look like its there and set a maximum amount of fear into them where it could keep the other pokemon from coming out to help their leader. ”Right, we just need them to buy what they’re seeing.” The Sylveon went and got what Seek needed for things. Though something tells him that the minute Uxie teleports them to where they need to be at, they’ll be on their own. At one point though the syvleon thought of a scary story that involved the grim reaper and it always had made him shudder in fear as well. The very visage of Death was always a fear that every pokemon dreads to see face to face. All they need is one to control the jaw and voice out enough to set a message in.

Felix returned with what Seek needed. ”Got them, though I have a feeling that we’ll be on our own for the return trip or escaping.” Should they be on their own, it would be basically taking extreme caution. Now that he said and got that thought out, it was time to get going.

His morbid suggestion had been heeded, and with a collective effort the small group decapitated the deceased and collected its head for later use. While the legend would never go back on his word or regret his choice the readiness the group showed to accept such a defiling and gruesome task spoke ill of their remaining morals. Would their bluff end up being real, the use of the head in later activities being more than a scare tactic? Or would it's presence alone serve to scar those Pokemon for life?

If events went south would these Pokemon go so far as to contaminate the shelter for those that claimed this sanctuary? Would they still refuse to acknowledge their intrusion upon this territory and multiple chances while shattering the lives of those that live here?

"You've made it clear you don't want to 'interfere' with this, but what about a little help?" Seek intruded upon his own thoughts with what appeared to be a humble request. The legend did not respond, as no query had been made, but turned to show that an audience was being given. "I've wasted our time.. could you just, I dunno, teleport us to their nesting ground, or their base, or anywhere closer? We don't have time to wander around."

Without knowing the locals true intentions every second was precious in recovering their lost safely. Though planning was key when wandering into an adder's nest they had dallied plenty with back and forth bickering. He refused to take a side, to truly align himself with either, though any outside perspective would say he was with the visiting group.

"Such use of my power is within my grasp. If it is your desire I shall lend you such a boon."

Eleroo 151 || Seek 149


"Such use of my power is within my grasp. If it is your desire I shall lend you such a boon." Seek's face widened with frustration, her annoyance with the being growing and she fought to hold her own tongue. "Yes," she gasped between clenched teeth, "that would be most helpful." She had already asked for his assistance quite clearly. Why did he insist on always getting a second yes? Heck he didn't even say how much he'd be willing to help! Irritation itched in her paws worse than the scratching mud, but for all her mettle the kit managed to keep it together. Just be happy he's willing to move us. It would counter her wastes of time, and maybe give them an edge of surprise. Either way, it would only be beneficial.

"Right," she said firmly with all the confidence she could muster. "We get in, get Eleroo, and get out of this town." Maybe they wouldn't have to fight at all. Their bluff could go unused and thrown away without the Pokemon being any wiser. They could finally leave this godforsaken town and swamp behind... With a shake of her head Seek glanced at their prior shelter. It was in poor shape now, covered in undead blood and a body. Was there anything they needed to take? "We won't be coming back here." She said aloud, her mind trying to piece together logistics of taking extra food and water. It'd way them down in a scuffle, and they couldn't come back for it. We have to take the loss. Eleroo was more important than any snacks.

Walking closer to Felix she motioned for the small group to come together. "Twenty minute adventure?" She joked halfheartedly. Truth be told, for all their lollygagging they didn't come up with a plan. Nothing concrete, nothing about an escape. No telling of one for all or all for one. "Whatever happens.. remember the goal." If Eleroo was recovered.. nothing else mattered.

Shenron got everything together and came close with everyone. Unfortunately Seek was right. They couldn't and shouldn't come back. This place was good to them but it wasn't safe. Not anymore. Not to mention it was a good percentage of why they were leaving... He looked at Seek and nodded. The goal. Rescue the kit. Get out alive. Avoid casualties and damage. His tail lashed a bit behind him before he turcked his flame safely under his wing. "Rescue the kit, get out alive and avoid starting fights" Though as he repeated it vocally. He wasn't entirely sure...
Could they realistically get out without a fight..?

"We get in, get Eleroo, and get out of this town."

Such wishful thinking befit the youth as she rallied the others to her side. Bloodshed was never the answer, even in a life and death situation the legend knew there was always an out in teleportation. This situation would not be as forgiving due to numbers and motives, but the legend would not hang himself upon unnecessary emotions.

With the small party together it was a simple matter for Uxie to fly forward with his magic energy radiating. The faint glow upon his gems only indicated the use of power, and were it not for the predisposed method it could have been used as any number of things. He had passed this town many times and seen his destination both near and far, thus readying an image in his mind. "Prepare yourselves." He said as the only warning before triggering the controlled spurt of energy that instantaneously allowed the allotted to move.

"Rescue the kit, get out alive and avoid starting fights."

What were their chances of things being that simple? The closer the legend moved to them the faster her heart started to beat. What if they had no chance, no hope of doing the one thing they desired? What if they all got killed in there?? Fighting back the rising panic Seek stared at the pixie as it started to glow. It was too late to go back and, at least for her, there was no other choice. I can't leave without him.

With a choking swallow the Aiveon steadied herself as best she could, and stood tall as the tinge of energy touched her sodden fur. I'm the big bad boss. I'm A big bad boss. A BA boss! The mantra did little calm her, and faster than she could blink or scream the world disappeared before her eyes. Within a heartbeat it returned, and as she blinked her vision clear the child immediately noticed the change in temperature. The place was much warmer, dryer, and without biting wind and rain. Gaining her bearings with a sweep of her head Seek knew they were inside a building, presumably the gym they sought. The room was small, dark, and gave no sound of other life. A door stood ajar to their side, and trotting up to it she did not relax her ears for a moment.

Reaching a trembling paw forward she hooked her muddy claws on to the door, but stopped before moving it even the slightest bit. All her confidence seemed to drain out through her paws and into the floor. Her trembling legs did not want to go through with any plans, but with a clenched jaw she forced herself to act and creaked the door toward her. Nudging her muzzle out just an inch she peaked into the hall and waited to any signs of life. It was quiet, the well hall empty as she primed all her senses. Backing away from the door the Aiveon quickly wiped her muddy paws clean [enough] on the floor and stared intensely at the others. Shenron's tail flame gave them just enough light to see one another, and the vague remains of the gutted out washroom.  

"O-okay," she said as hushed as possible, "It coast seems clear. Nesting ground would probably be toward the back.. whichever way that is." Legends, she did not want to go through with raiding a nesting ground. She didn't want to be here, to do this-- with her head held high the Aiveon walked back to the door with faux confidence. Peaking once again outside she slowly pulled the door open, and motioned for the others to come closer. "This way," she breathed, pointing to the longer end of the hall. "If something sees us.. don't let them make a sound."

Shenron snorted finally glad to be free of the accursed rain. He carefully raised his temperature drying himself and anyone near before shaking off. He watched Seek wander and pace around before going to the door to look as well. "It seems so... Understood" Shenron raised his head sniffing the air a bit and couldn't smell anything besides the damp humidity of the gym. Every Water type dream stank of sitting water, chlorine and rubber or plastic depending on what sort of obstacles or flotation devices they kept poolside. "Hm... They wouldn't keep eggs near the pool. Hatchlings that aren't aquatic could be harmed... We'll have to follow our nose and be careful..." Hopefully such a thing was possible. Shenron's claws shuddered in anticipation.
He was ready if not...

Felix stayed quiet as he followed Seek and Shenron. Like so with most he was following her orders and made sure they stayed out of sight. Of course though stealth is the best option but getting spotted means they would have to silence them before they raised the alarm. The Sylveon detested that option but it was either a them or us situation and right now they couldn't risk getting an entire army after them. So he spoke quietly to Seek. "Do you think at least one of them would give us the information that we'll need?" Felix asked as he kept his guard up and watching his surroundings.

OoC)) Short post, couldn't really think of anything to add.

Eleroo 151 || Seek 150


Creeping wearily into the hall the Aiveon breathed fervently through her nose. Smelling and listening for the first sign of danger there was nothing about their current position that felt safe or wise. "Hm... They wouldn't keep eggs near the pool. Hatchlings that aren't aquatic could be harmed... We'll have to follow our nose and be careful..." Though she wanted to press the dragon for specifics she decided to simply let her nose do the job. The thick smell of moisture, something reminiscent of a public pool, was everywhere, but as they reached a T at the end of their path even she had to admit it was stronger on one side than the other. We're coming Eleroo.

Pressing against one wall she checked ever so carefully for incoming Pokemon before moving on. With a small gesture to one side the Aiveon directed their path further into the den. It was so far so good, and in her focus she nearly jumped at the jump sound of Felix's voice. "Do you think at least one of them would give us the information that we'll need?" It was a good idea, but as she started to ponder it her mind instantly thought of Eleroo, if he was alone and cornered by strange Pokemon pressuring him for directions. What would he do? The poor boy would be scared out of his gourd, barely able to speak and struggling to point in a general direction as a means of communication. Would he break under pressure? She didn't doubt it, but to willingly give such important information.. he would protect his kin. With a shake she spoke on a sigh, "No one with morals would willingly put babies in danger."

Though she held conviction in her words she knew the Floatzel's actions spoke otherwise. But.. Eleroo isn't a baby anymore. In more than one way he had grown, most noticeably in his evolved body. Unlike the meek stumbling boy she had grown up with he was bigger, wiser, braver, and had the biggest heart..! It didn't make things any better or okay at all, but the Aiveon forced herself to recognize the difference between taking a preteen and snatching defenseless eggs.

Lost in her thoughts she had lost focus for just a moment, and her paws were moving on autopilot until a new sound made her come to a very sudden stop. Flexing her wings out she formed a small barriar to tell the others to halt, and pressing herself to the wall Seek perked an ear for danger. She now realized it was a voice, its lone conversation quiet and just beyond the wall as it rustled about. They had found trouble, and already her heart started to race. Creeping forward ever so lightly she peered through the crack above the hinge of the ajar door. The blue shape was fiddling with a bundle or sorts, muttering to herself as she collected the material and started walking toward the door. Crap!

The panic surged through her, tensing every muscle at once. There was no time to run, to get the upperpaw-- the Aiveon's jaw was tight as the Marill's round body breached the doorway. Her small arms were filled with stacked blankets, obscuring her view as she turned the same direction they had been heading. Perhaps, just maybe, they would follow without being noticed, but Seek's body reacted out of sheer panic. With a sudden leap she bolted, tackling the Marill and knocking her to the ground. The blankets toppling around them as Seek pressed the rubbery Pokemon into their plush fibers. Her cries were muffled by the cloth, her struggling nearly too much for the Aiveon to hold back. Pressing with all her might Seek hissed as quietly but fervently as she could, "D-do something-!"

Shenron shook his head following quietly behind everyone. Watching around him. His anxiety cooled but not away. It was hard to discern scent with the moisture in the air. He glared behind them briefly before whipping back around at Seek's hissed exclamation. Shenron's eyes widened and he extended a hand. Immediately the thought of the screaming mouse getting louder if Shenron held it down hit him. He was heavy. And clawed! His mind swam with panic and he looked around hoping to not hear the dreaded sound of reinforcements coming. His heartbeat raged in his ears and he swallowed.
"F-Felix? Do you..?"

Great, enemy reinforcements are coming and they need to silence this Marill but not kill her. With his ribbons, he wrapped it around the Marill and spoke calmly and told her with his voice. "We're not here to hurt you or anyone. Please, we're trying to save someone who's in grave danger. Whatever that Floatzel told you, I'm sure he's blaming me and my friends for what happened." He then looked at Seek before nodding to her to get inside the room as he carries the Marill with his feelers keeping the mouth covered. He then does the same with Shenron in nodding to him to get into the room. They can't risk getting spotted here right now. The reinforcements will be upon them soon. "Seek, Shenron. Let me handle this one. If I can get the Marill to listen then we'll stand a chance. Now though is the time to be quiet until the enemies pass by.

❖ Pastoria City + Pastoria Gym + Morning + 82 ❖



The Legendary Pokemon could not decide whether to commend or damn their arrival. While their placement was not quite where he had envisioned they had appeared within their destination, a place he had only sparse exposure to. They had not appeared in the midst of a group or caused an immediate panic, though the others had little to no bearings on their current location. The mixed bag left a lot to be desired, but the miniature feat deserved a silent praise.

Uxie considered his options and the logistics behind concealing himself once more. There was no doubt that their Floatzel antagonist had regaled his fellows in witnessing a living legend, but believability of that claim was another matter. How long had he gazed upon his hidden form? Enough to take in its shape or only notice when he began to change? Would he remember the species or simply his sudden appearance? It mattered not, as the crux of his tale would be a legend and a human among a group of intruders, not handful of unusual species.

With a twist of his twin tails the pixie shrouded himself once again in his classic disguise, donning that of a fellow yellow psychic. Such a simple ruse would be quite effective, he thought, and silently he followed the others without any input.

The legend almost forgot himself as the Marill was pinned to the floor. Its manic struggling did little, its muffled cries too soft to alert others. If they applied enough pressure they could cause it to black out or suffocate, but he could see within the panicking team that was not the idea on their minds. Bundling up their own hostage Felix took imitative to move their victim out of sight, and following along Uxie readied himself to listen in on an impromptu interrogation.

The rubbery Pokemon was hard to keep a grip of, and Seek struggled not to just dig her claws into its skin for hold. What do we do?? Her mind was racing, desperate to find a solution as her muscles screamed to let go. Glancing over her shoulder she could see Felix fast approaching and his many feelers reaching forward. There touch was unexpected, unnerving, and the Aiveon froze up at the sensation. Without realizing it she had loosened her grip on the Marill who struggled free from her but was still bound by the many feelers. Her voice remained cut off as a ribbon covered her mouth, but the mouse continued to whine in all her efforts to scream. "We're not here to hurt you or anyone. Please, we're trying to save someone who's in grave danger. Whatever that Floatzel told you, I'm sure he's blaming me and my friends for what happened."

The Sylveon's voice was uncomfortably calm, clearly meant to be soothing in this panicked situation. "What are you doing?" Seek hissed as quietly as she could manage. She had expected him to strangle or squeeze the Pokemon until she started to lose consciousness. Now she was worried he would let her run off screaming for back up! Tensing her muscles for another pounce the Aiveon wasn't expecting Felix's subtle idea. "Seek, Shenron. Let me handle this one. If I can get the Marill to listen then we'll stand a chance."'

"I don't know," she confessed, still ready to leap on the water type again if need be. "That'll be a hard sell after jumping her." Heat burned beneath her pelt. Admittedly that was her fault, but there was no other choice at the time. Pacing a couple steps to and fro the Aiveon sighed with indecision. "Fine." She puffed, trotting into the room. "Three minutes. We can't really stay here." The longer they lingered the better chance they had of being discovered. Seek's paws itched uncomfortably; she didn't see this going in their favor at all.

Shenron watched Felix and shooed them into the room. "Go in there, I'll watch the door" He glared around sniffing some and quietly closed the door once they were inside. Shenron watched Felix but kept his ears open for anyone approaching. His nerves prickled in discomfort and anxiety. This wasn't ideal but... It was the best they had right now. They couldn't kill the Marill or that'd be grounds for retaliation. They needed to do something to not hurt the Marill. Felix could maybe do that. No. He had faith Felix could do this. Faith was all he had and honestly... It wasn't a bad thing to have right now...

Felix kept the Marill quiet while not squeezing it enough to cause harm. Seeing a room that was small but mostly soundproof he went in there and talked with the Marill calmly and nicely. "We're not looking for any hostility and sorry if my friend there got rough with you. We're not here to hurt anyone nor are we wanting to cause harm. From the looks of things, the Floatzel didn't want anyone to leave. We just want to know where he's keeping a friend of ours." The Sylveon said as he uncovered the Marill. He used his ribbon like feelers to keep the Marill calm. Though he had to say one thing for sure, even though they're all hiding in the gym, there is no real safe place. Whatever the Floatzel told them was certainly a lie to make them fear the outside world. "I'm gonna uncover your mouth. Just blink once if you trust me, blink twice if you don't. If you do then I'll uncover it. It'll just be me and you talking, nobody else. I'm more of a doctor than a fighter so you can tell me what's going on." Just for safe measures, he closed the door to keep things nice and quiet so nobody can hear them.

OoC)) Now begins Dr. Felix if you know what I mean.

This was going nowhere as when the question about the Floatzel forced the Marill into silence. Something had to have happened to make them not speak of him and the things that he had done to scare them all. Felix then asked again as softly as he could. "Please, if you could tell me, I would have a better understanding on helping you and getting the Floatzel to reveal the truth to why he created fear." Once again silence. If he was a psychic then he'd get the info right then and there but he wasn't. One thing was for sure, the Floatzel definitely did something to them to keep them from talking about it. Guess there was one last chance on it and he wasn't wanting to force the marill to fearing him as well. That wouldn't bold well for him in the long run. "I can't help you if you don't speak of it and it makes it hard for me to help you if you remain silent about it. You probably fear for someone important but like I said nobody will know except me, you and the silent one here." He waited patiently for the response and he wasn't in any hurry.

With Shenron watching the door and Seek watching the interrogation it left little for Uxie to occupy himself with. Despite the unease of their tense situation he felt there was little truly at stake. The group had complete control of their would-be discoverer and the rest of the gym was none the wiser. Regardless of how their experiment played out their was little risk in it, and they could continue their venture without consequence.

With little progress in their hostage he moved to the Sylveon's side to act as a fearmonger, another looming presence to lure the Marill into speaking. Though fear sparkled in its dark eyes the water Pokemon was surprising stalwart, keeping all information to herself. "We could always use force." He suggested, though whether or not it was a jest was to be seen.

Felix continued to paint himself as a benevolent force, that he was here to help both sides, but his olive branch was rejected as nothing but silence came from their source. "Perhaps I should lead." He voiced, moving uncomfortably close to the Sylveon without need of approval. One didn't need to be a psychic to see this was going nowhere, and, with lack of a compelling reason not to, the legendary took control of the situation.

Uxie pushed his face past Felix where it was of no risk to the other Pokemon. Trapped within her bindings the Marill had no escape, her dark, trembling, eyes locked on the Abra's every motion. "Breathe with me," he exhaled, an eerie calm to his voice as he opened his amber gaze. For a second nothing happened, intent unclear until the connection was formed and both Pokemon fell into a trance.

Bound to the other Pokemon Uxie let their minds meld together. Diving into the Marill's memories the pixie searched for any useful information. Sights of those living here popped up one after another, her role within the group showing that of a caretaker. Uninterested, he pressed further, straining their bond in his pursuit of something specific. Common scene after common scene played, and he thought the chase pointless when it appeared.

Before his minds eye the two scenes played, the first shimmering with fresh clarity. The Floatzel had come in, dangling their captive before a shocked audience before tossing him within a pet carrier of sorts. Their Marill ran, her weaving path landing in the very room they sought. However, Uxie was more interested in the other memory he found. She was outside, likely in the Marsh by the vegetation, witnessing an event from the shadows.

It was what he wanted, no, what he needed. Uxie strained, drinking in the scene until, like an electric shock, the connection was severed, sending a recoil through both Pokemon as their minds were forced apart. Fighting the familiar disorientation the legend wasted no time overtaking the Marill again. Her bleary eyes stared in the same stupor, but widened again upon locking sights. "At ease," he cooed as her mind went blank and the creature lost consciousness.

With that last effort his flight wavered, taking him on a teetering path to the floor. Needing a moment to recoup the legend could have shook with excitement were he prone to showing emotion. With a deep breath he regained his composure and recalled the situation at hand.

"Let her rest; she has forgotten this meeting." He beckoned, calling off the surrounding Pokemon from the slumped over rodent. They still had a mission, if they could call it that, and had loitered in one spot long enough. "Do we still wish to visit the nesting ground, or shall we meet up with our missing child?"

Pastoria Gym || Morning [Storming]
Eleroo 151 || Seek 152


Seek sat by uneasily. Shifting her paws she could not stand waiting around, let alone letting Felix take the reins. She wanted to help, to get in there and rough the information out, but if his soft approach wasn't working she doubted that would be any different. Maybe with time the Marill would give in, but that wasn't something they had. It was a risk to try this at all, something she had accepted, but it wasn't looking so hot. Regardless, Seek held her tongue, and instead readied herself to strike with a Hidden Power if needed.

Where her patience would have worn thin Felix persisted, cooing at the Marill so gently that you could almost forget this was an interrogation. Almost, but not quite, as the mouse stayed silent through it all. With a flick of her wings Seek was about to give in and take matters into her own paws when Uxie interrupted. "Perhaps I should lead." Curiosity kept in her in the backseat, and readjusting her seating she raised a curious ear to the legend as it moved closer to their captive. Said ear wouldn't prove useful, as other than a soft couple of words all she heard was a gasping breath.

Seek couldn't really tell what was happening, but it sent a shiver down her spine. It was creeping, no, downright uncomfortable to watch for some reason, and as the legend fell to the ground she could see the Marill had slumped over as well. Feeling sick to her stomach the Aiveon didn't know what to make of things. Had she just watched a murder, would they have to hide a body? She crept closer, needing to check for signs of life, but froze as she heard a tired voice. "Let her rest; she has forgotten this meeting." What did that mean? That wasn't possible. "What just happened?" She barked, exasperation edging her cry. "What did you just do?" There had been no exchange of information, nothing gained from their captive other than removing the threat of backup. Stupid legend.

What should they do now? Their possible lead was gone and a passed out Pokemon would be an obvious clue to their presence. With hurried paws Seek shuffled about the blankets and towels the Marill had been carrying before, adjusting to about it to look like perhaps it had fallen asleep here. It was.. not convincing. "Do we still wish to visit the nesting ground, or shall we meet up with our missing child?" The legend asked after a moment. Completely caught off guard Seek whipped around and stared suspiciously at the psychic. It knew this information the entire time?! "Save Eleroo!" She gasped without thinking, her maw agape. That was their goal, their purpose, their plan-- no. Her face relaxed a little as it realized the actual plan was more complicated than that. We're supposed to bluff That meant they had to go, didn't it? Her claws curled against the floor, teeth clenching as she debated the choice. "...Right?"

Great Marsh|Morning (128)

Shenron looked back to see what was happening. Had Uxie... Done something? He wanted to investigate but his attention was held by watching the door. Seek's voice carried over to him and he looked at the kit concerned. Yes, their main goal was to save Eleroo but... It'd be too easy to just find him and run. Something so sneaky would serve to infuriate the Floatzel. If not make every Pokemon here incredibly paranoid. He looked at all of them nervously with his claws kneading the door. The small frightened Charmander part of his mind didn't think they'd make it this far. Maybe hoping they could inevitably call the Floatzel's bluff and make him return Eleroo to avoid an unnecessary fight. Either way they were here now...
"Whatever the decision, make it quickly. Its best we do not linger"

OoC)) Skip, Felix agrees that they should find Eleroo.
