Eleroo 146 || Seek 136


Eleroo felt like he was going to shake right out of his fur. His trembling was getting worse, his pulse racing from a mix of fear and action. Another Shadow Ball festered at his maw, wispy and failing to form as he fought off a rising panic. What was he doing? The Tropius had turned its rage filled eyes toward him, his weak attack still being enough to infuriate it. I'm not brave. Eleroo strained to keep the Shadow Ball viable, but he couldn't imagine aiming, attacking, and striking again. Hope was fettering away as quickly as the dark sphere, but it was reignited by surprise praise. "Excellent kit, aim for the vitals and means of movement. I believe in you." His paws tingled once more, the weight on his shoulders lightening as he focused on keeping himself and his attack steady.

Digging his pads into the floor he let his next strike go. With a sweep of its head the undead avoided another blast to the face, more specifically the eyes that Eleroo had been aiming for. The child had never stopped shaking, almost cursing his effort, but the sphere managed to make contact with one of the beasts rear wings. The wilting tip bent, flopping over meekly as the beast cried out in distress. Any joy was short lived, as it quickly stamped forward, charging the room with a rumbling bellow. Eleroo scampered aside narrowly avoiding being crushed under its bulking weight. She stopped suddenly, body rearing before coming down with a twist and flap. A harsh, sudden blade of wind shot forward, its target unknown as it flew forward and smashed the window before it.

Glass showered down to the floor, the whipping sound of wind and rain now coming from above and beside them as cold air flew in. Putting more distance between himself and the undead Eleroo tried not to gag. It was unclear if it was the fresh air, the monsters movement, or just his proximity, but its smell hit him hard. Her fatal wounds were bad enough, the smell of already death potent, but it was only getting worse as she attacked. Burn's from Shenron's attacks festered its diseased skin, the rotten portions bubbling and giving off a horrid odor of burned skin. As it rampaged, almost trampling him again, Eleroo could see pieces sloughing off and mixing with bloody prints it left on the floor. Despite his fear only one thought came to his mind. Its in pain. The thought was heartbreaking, that maybe it couldn't process anything outside of agony. The child practically sobbed, wailing out, "No one deserves this!"


Seek's vision was swamped, her rapid breathing refusing her the oxygen she needed. With her belly pressed roughly against the floor she struggled even more so to take in a deep inhale, and her mind was forced to slow down. The Pelipper had collapsed in a heap, clearly caught off guard by the electrical attack. For a few seconds it looked harmless, even weak as it struggled to stand. Its thick wings slapped the ground in a bid to regain itself, but its twitching muscles made for a difficult step. Seek's jaw clenched, her eyes wide with massive pupils as she tried to regain her composure. I-it was just a bird. Just a dumb, ugly bird that couldn't even stand. W-what was she so afraid so?! Forcing her stiff legs to stand Seek took a single step closer to it before the Pelipper managed to get back into its webbed feet.

With a jump she moved back, her body reacting with another Hidden Power. The jolt was weaker than before, just serving to irritate the wobbly pelican as it turned to face her. It gave a caw, throat rippling as it prepped another water attack. With a yelp Seek jumped again, bounding away and taking to the air much to her own surprise. Flying indoors was something completely new, and in her panicked state she struggled into the pound against the ceiling or careen straight into oncoming walls. Her mouth had gone dry from hyperventilating, body going lucid with a new fright, but somehow she managed to call out, "Moonblast it!"

Shenron snarled side-stepping the Tropius to avoid its clumsy agonized steps. Hearing Eleroo's wail, his mind lapsed in judgement. Outrage at last surging through his veins and claws digging into it's decaying hide. Foam bubbling and seeping between his clenched teeth as he strained to maintain control. But he could feel himself growing frustrated as his claws could get no firm grip. It felt as if they were a hot knife sliding through butter and string. If this was a hunt he would be delighted, soft hide holding in tender juicy meat ready to devour. He couldn't think that way. This was not meat for him. It barely served as meat for infernal scavengers! With each slash, his mind grew fuzzier. His pupils dilated and constricted struggling to remain focused. Confused. He couldn't be confused already! Shenron took a step back placing his hands on the ground panting as confusion made the residual Outrage burn at his scales. His mouth gaping open and closed like a Magikarp struggling to find air where it couldn't. Finally Seek's cry reached him in the daze of confusion. Focus on that. Focus on her. This room is noisy, pick a sound for base. Her cry and hyperventilating so slight but just enough for him to home in on. But he still needed a minute. His mind was wracked in agony still. Outrage hurt. It always hurt in an uncomfortable tingle sort of way. Like the pain one felt in drinking or eating something cold.
Still it was just sobering enough to work for him right now

The Pelliper was wobbling as it was still trying to get to the other eeveelutions. Seek then shouts. "Moonblast it!" That was all that was needed to say. Without hesitation, Felix fires off a moonblast at the Pelliper. It hits and downs the Pelliper. Its blood however was all over the wall from where it was hit. Honestly it stunk worse than a stunky. The only thing that escaped Felix's mouth was. "That smell, its disgusting!" The Sylveon said as he had the look of disgust trying to not puke from the smell. If they was assassins sent to kill them or force them out then they failed and it might draw the ire of the one who sent them. Eleroo and Seek aren't safe here as well as everyone else. Somehow they managed to get rid of the first attackers. However they might not be so lucky next time. Even for Felix, this was to close for comfort. They had to get out of there and get as far away from this place as they could.

First thing was to check of the two was alright. "Seek, Eleroo, are you both okay? Any of you hurt?" Felix asked out of concern. THen his second is to wanting to get out of this place before more show up. "I don't think we should stay here any longer than we should. They might send more undead to either force us off or kill us." As much as he didn't want to leave some of the vast novels and medical books, it was either they leave or die. It was all up to them as a group to discuss what to do. If its to escape then its for a good reason, but if they stay, they'll be almost constantly attacked.

OoC)) I don't got much at the moment.

❖ Pastoria City + Terminal Building Floor 1 + Dawn + 69 ❖


The undead were waking, the activity and hunt fueling something in their bodies to make them more lively. Their sounds, their movements, their anger, it all stimulated their beings as the battled continued. The Tropius had moved forward, causing even more damage to the building as its rage boiled over.

Why, he wondered. What had caused this anger to surface and overtake its thought? The damage they had caused her was not yet severe and didn't warrant such a rampage. The disease was at play, that much was obvious, but what was its goal other than spreading? Such violence would kill its victims and remove the chance to reproduce. Did it want to leave wounds or strikes on those fleeing, or use final hits during its own death to spread? Such a risky method wouldn't have ratified a takeover of epidemic proportions.

But his hypotheses would have to wait. With a dip and dive the legend easy but narrowly avoided the strike from the dinosaur as it lashed out. When Seek cried out he switched targets, watching as she regained enough of herself to take to the air and leaving the Pelipper exposed in her wake. Twirling his twin tails in front of himself Uxie prepared an attack of his own, but withheld it as the Aiveon's instructions were heeded and a massive Moonblast descended upon the grounded bird.

While it was unclear if the rotten bird's body simply couldn't handle it, or if the attack was gratuitous, the damage was certain as dark blood sprayed out from the new gaping wound. It gave a cry, surprise perhaps, and seemed unable to return fire after sustaining such injury. It twitched, struggling to even more as its lifeblood draining from its battered body. As a sitting duck Uxie's interest was piqued, his offense forfeited for opportunity.

Angling himself with the others at his back the pixie thrust out his tails and arms in a fluid motion. A single shimmering star cascaded down, bursting before the pelican and drawing its attention forward. In the silent stance of an attack and all allies away from friendly fire the legendary Pokemon opened his true eyes. There was no chance for the bird as its ruby eyes locked with his golden ones and the process started.

The connection was formed, minds melding as vast distances became instant in a sea of thought. Uxie held the trance, lingering in its memories as they became his own. A lifetime passed by in a matter of seconds, his mind's eye full of key events and moments. He searched, struggling to stay the bond as he reached the recent past. The picture grew red, hazy like a film grain as its own memories faded with mental degradation. Shaking, he forced himself to remain present, the strain on both being both then and now increasing tremendously. The haze was thick, the memory holding nothing as the bird dove into the sea. Faux water choked him, the pressure worse than that of their thinning connection as he desperately lingered for value. Suddenly, the bird surfaced, a fish in its bill that it flung up and caught in its massive pouch.

Uxie gasped, his eyes widening as he noticed the spotting a heartbeat before their connection finally snapped with a harsh psychic pop. The force flung him to the ground, eyes closing in a pained cringe as the stolen memories condensed and faded from the front of his mind. The sea. He forced himself to hold onto what he desired, the small phrase a key clue in his search. Struggling to bring himself back to the present situation Uxie looked at the bird and knew the process had been too much; the psychic severing had snapped its decaying neck, its head resting listlessly at an awkward angle.

He rested his gaze on it for a few more moments, wondering if such a death was better or worse than a normal attack, or if morality had been violated. But even with such things in mind the legend felt validated, his gained knowledge more than justifying his actions as he took his lidded eyes away from the lifeless bird.

They would find no sanctuary by the bay.

(OoC: The Pelipper is dead.)

Eleroo 147 || Seek 137


Eleroo could only watch as Shenron attacked the Tropius. He was their greatest asset, their strongest friend, but watching such a normally calm Pokemon go savage was truly hard to watch. The Tropius was suffering...! It didn't matter if it was undead, wounds were wounds and they looked vicious as it struggled and stomped in a desperate effort to shake him off. Shenron stopped of his own merits, but it only made the wounds clearer as the dinosaurs tattered hide revealed flesh that wasn't completely rotten. The scent was even worse, making the kit gag as the scorched, pungent smell assaulted his senses.

It was dizzying, sending him stumbling as the dual type raged past him. Despite the damage it had just received the thing did not turn back on its stunted attacker. It continued, ignoring the heap of a legend and offensive Felix that it could easily of charged at. What is it- Eleroo couldn't even finish his thought before the enraged creature made its intent, or lack their of, clear. It charged straight at the window it had already damaged, the cold, wet wind brushing its wings as it started to roar. She did not slow down, but raised both forelegs as it angled a shoulder toward the damaged wall. The crash assaulted his ears, sending the Radeon hunkering down on the floor, but his eyes refused to close as he watched the undead forcibly crash through the wall and out into the city beyond.

The sudden influx of air rocked the Aiveon around helplessly. The sudden violent current tugged her along, her stiff body struggling to fight it off as she had no purchase. Rapid breathes and heartbeats brought some life back to her paws, but even as she kicked and failed her light body was forced to follow the current as it whipped through the room. In her spinning vision Seek could see the very bloody Pelipper, and though she didnt know it had been slain she knew in that state it was no longer a threat. Her mind wanted to relax, to have some calm, but the wicked winds wouldn't let her until, with a harsh gust, the arcing wind made its way back out and she was thrown outside into the storm. "Hey-!" She cried out, the open space allowing her some control over her flight, but as she righted herself the Aiveon realized she was not alone. The Tropius had taken to the air and turned its sights back at her.

Reaching its long neck out toward her, it clamped its toothless, crushing maw down in an attempt to bite her. With a hasty flap the still unsteady Aiveon narrowly dodged, but it didn't stop trying to crush any part of her it could catch. "Oh come on!" She squeaked, realizing it was not an actual attack but just as dangerous to her as she couldn't shake it off.

Shenron looked up watching the current take Seek and panicked. His fuzzied brain wailing to be stable while paternal instinct urged him to go after the kit. He smashed his head on the wall drawing blood to snap his confusion away. "Seek!" His eyes searched the skies seeing the kit dodging the Tropius. He had to... The wind whipped a wall of rain into his burning hide making him step back shaking himself. He couldn't. His tail flame could and would burn as long as he expended an excess amount of energy but he'd get exhausted eventually. He'd get tired and fall. Just add himself to the problem! His head still hurt and cried out from the residual confusion and now blood dripping from a wound. He was hurt and helpless. There was nothing he could do...
"Damn it...

Felix was getting ready to attack the Tropius next as it came into his view. Getting a good shot on it thoguh was more difficult than the pelliper. Come on you bastard. Hold still for one second instead of thrashing about like that. There was just no way he could hit it directly. There was one other way though. It was a wild card and the results aren't exactly the greatest. Since there was some surfaces that he can use the moonblast to make it bounce off of, it might hit something else. "This is kind of difficult to nail this one. Well here goes nothing." The Sylveon fires off the moonblast. As expected it started bouncing off of surfaces like a wild bullet. Anything unlucky to be in its direct path including paper was bound to have a hole punched through it. Last thing he needs is for it to go flying out the window, but its all up in the air on where it goes.

OoC)) Something that came out of the air for me. If this isn't possible, let me know and I'll make changes. Depending on what happens it might take a few posts, but if not then it might end on anyone's post.

❖ Pastoria City + Outside the Terminal Building + Dawn + 70 ❖


Uxie was motionless, the shock of his own blast rippling throughout his surprised body. Recovery was fast after centuries of experience but the ordeal never grew more pleasant. The ricochet had knocked his head against the floor and a small hand fell into a familiar groove as he soothed his aching crown. In that moment of weakness the other undead tromped past, its massive toenail narrowly missing his small grey body. I was reckless.

With his twin tails flowing behind him the legend regained his footing before taking loft once more. Its body teetered, readjusting to the weightlessness as he followed the destruction outside. With their airspace no longer restricted the winged Pokemon took to the sky, their maneuvers free and swift as they fought both each other and the elements pouring down around them. The harsh winds tried to toss his own being but the legend had regained himself, and he floated effortlessly as he watched the skyward dance.

How futile. The structural damage had been enough to mark them irredeemable, but their clamor would undoubtedly call to those hiding around them. Uxie calmed his mind, tuning out other forces as he focused on finding other presences.

Eleroo 148 || Seek 138


Seek struggled against the wind, her light bones tossed about like a ragdoll as the Tropius continued its assault. The beast's powerful form fought the wind it was accustomed to with ease, its wing beats gratuitous in hurling the Aiveon about. Electricity arched across her pelt but the whipping made focus a challenge and aiming impossible. "Leave her alone!" She heard Eleroo wail, his squeaky voice seemingly coming from all directions as the Nebula Pokemon was spun about. A dot of purple passed her vision as she pulled a limb in close and narrowly avoided another chomp from the bleeding beast. Do something! All she needed was a moment, a chance to regain control and ride the winds, but she couldn't do that without some backup.

Eleroo's paws flitted, working and tapping the ground with rapid movements as he panicked. What could he do?! They were too high, he was so small.. His jaw quivered, any possible Shadow Balls fizzling to nothing at his maw as he watched the aerial maneuvers in horror. Shenron! The dragon could drag the thing back down! Flipping on his heels the Radeon took one bounce closer before watching the Charizard bash his own head against a wall, drawing blood and pain both as he struggled with some unknown force. The display made his twitchy paws seize, a sense of dread coming over him that he had felt so many times before. It only worsened as he saw Uxie on the floor and Felix run past him. His chest tightened as he realized the others were occupied, caught up in the fighting themselves and he was on his own.

With a rough breath he took a cautious step back before charging out into the rain. The wind pulled at his limp ears, batting them against his face as driving rain brought his face down and away from his quarry. What could he do? His stomach churned, possibly with a Toxic, but spitting one so high with the gales would never work out. The roofs? They had climbed before, maybe one of the closer buildings could help? As his mind whirled with ideas Eleroo found his paws rooted to the spot, paralyzed with bad possibilities. I really am useless. Had he already used up all his cards playing leader? And for what? Heat burned beneath his freezing pelt, a deep shame filling his face as he watched helplessly, but Felix's voice snapped his body back to the task at hand.

The glittering nyoom of an attack whistled in their ears, and as the Moonblast's path was deflected and changed even the Tropius could not dodged. Seek yelped, instinctively pulling all extremities inward and barely dropping herself out of harms way. The strike burst a moment later, and shimmering energy reached the Aiveon and took her out of crash position. With an even sharper yelp Seek throw out her limbs, catching the breeze and drifting away from the blast as the stunted dinosaur struggled to stay airborne as it fell. Wincing from the splash damage as she flapped Seek finally had a chance to regain control and rode the winds instead of fighting them. They were rough, but she managed to drift to the terminals roof and gain purchase on the slippery tiles. Digging her claws into a solid surface the wet Pokemon stood tall, relieved as the immediate danger passed. Watching as the Tropius fell almost completely to the ground she couldn't help but smirk and yowl down at it, "Yeah! Buzz off you overgrown weed!"

At the last moment it recovered, shaking its head and flapping its long fronds to make for a smooth landing as she bellowed in rage. Blood from its prior wounds dripped more fervently, mixing with the rain and running down its body as it eyed the Aiveon above. Her body tilted back, wings beating in rhythm to whip up a violent Leaf Tornado that tore its way toward the Aiveon. Seek squeaked, dropping into a crouch before running along the roof to avoid the forming twister, but as it was coming together something else caught her eye, a rocketing shape hurling its way toward them. Her maw locked in a hiss, sparks weakly arcing across her pelt as the spiral of wind and leaves came toward her, but all focus was on the orange shape that dashed straight at the Tropius from behind.

"Yall bastards 'int listen." The Floatzel jabbered before ice coated its fangs and he leaped, landing square on the dinosaurs back to land a direct hit to its long frond. The susceptible leaf wilted beneath the extreme chill, freezing and snapping off on the spot as the weasel flipped away from the trashing beast. "Now look what ye've done!"

Shenron watched intently through the haze of confusion. Focusing on the Tropius. Watching it come down ready to Outrage again but stopped seeing the Floatzel. His tail lashed behind him on reflex. What was he taking about? Did he mean they should've left before the Tropius and Pelipper came? Shenron growled thinking they dared to send these infected to attack them even. Still he remained poise with his wings up and looking bigger then he was to threaten the Tropius back away from him. He couldn't rush out into the rain but he would not hesitate to drag it inside with him to his level if it came down to it. His claws flexed dangerously watching. Waiting. His attention darting between the Tropius and Floatzel trying to gauge who was the greater threat here. The rational or irrational.

The moonblast was bouncing around still hitting any surface it could ricochet off of. Even the sounds of wood snapping or breaking upon each impact from the attack. Each second passed as even Felix had to move out of the way of his own attack. However, an interuption had sounded itself quite clear. "Yall bastards 'int listen." Either this was the same Floatzel or a different one, but none the less he was still unhappy about them being here. It flips off the back of the Tropius after it had attacked it. Then a thought did come into mind. Didn't the Floatzel have the undead come to assassinate them? If he did, then why did he come and attack his own assassins? Felix will have to ask that later. "Now look what ye've done!" Really? Accusing them of destroying this place when it was falling apart to begin with? Oh well, guess he doesn't need to apologize, but the Floatzel does for threatening them.

The attack bounces off one last area smacking a lamp before making a direct hit on the Tropius' wings before finally busting through the window before it fizzles out. The Tropius falls to the ground with a hard thud and upon impact with the ground breaking its back left leg as the bone sticks out of its decaying body. "Seek, Eleroo, now, before it gets up and attacks again!" Felix shouts to the two while Shenron was ready to make his move as well. After they get rid of this Tropius, the Floatzel has a lot to answer for.

❖ Pastoria City + Outside the Terminal Building + Dawn + 71 ❖


Thunder rumbled behind the rhythm of pelting rain. The freezing cold and windy torrents tossed the child around like a leaf on the breeze. If not for Felix she may not have regained control of her loft and the fight would have been cut short. How then, he wondered, had she planned to flee this place through flight? Would the weight of her passenger counter her own fragility, or send them both into a fatal crash? It was an interesting hypothesis, but one he could not explore as he was alerted by a presence.

Uxie readied himself for an attack, knowing an ambush was probable with multiple assailants. It was swift, a familiar sensation they had witnessed before, and while it felt singular he would not rule out others in hiding. They were sitting prey, well deserving of assault in the eyes of others, but the Floatzel mustn't have been petty enough to attack those in need. Its ice attack was brutal, forming quickly and causing significant damage to the rampaging undead. "Yall bastards 'int listen. Now look what ye've done!" It scorned them as one of the undead's wings fell uselessly to the muddy ground.

Its icy fangs melted, and it spat the remainder out with a venomous scowl. Ever calm Uxie felt for other Pokemon, readying himself for a second strike, but only friendly fire burst through their battlefield. The ricocheting Moonblast found its final destination; the quad weakness wound stood no chance of defending the Tropious. Crushed beneath it, Uxie's mental gaze did not leave the Floatzel that stared from a safe distance.

Pastoria City || Morning [Storming]
Eleroo 149 || Seek 139


Seek huffed, her breath uneven as she watched the spectacle below. The Tropius groaned, its stomach sunk to the ground as its legs stamped and neck writhed. Was it in pain? Its wild eyes spoke of endless agony but its cries were that of anger. Still, despite the show it was making of its wound she couldn't stop looking at the Floatzel. Why was it back? What did it mean by that? Why had it spied on them?? "Seek, Eleroo, now, before it gets up and attacks again!" Gritting her teeth at the name drop the Aiveon barely resisted her urge to scream back at him. None of her moves were good enough for this! Sparks arced across her wet pelt with gusto, but type disadvantage told her to use something else.

Pacing a small section of roof top she knew there was nothing else she could do from here. If she jumped down there was still very little she could do. Even Dig would likely bounce off its thick hide. Frustration built beneath her muscles, agitation working at her wings until she was flapping furiously. With a loud cry of exasperation the Aiveon watched as her hard wing beats formed familiar blades of air that raced forward and splashed at the wet ground. Enlightened with epiphany, Seek changed her angle, and with another try scored a direct hit against the beast. It cringed, flinching under the onslaught, and boosting her conceit.

Eleroo wasn't as conflicted. His trembling paws ached for a guiding hand, but with limited options he already knew what he had to do. His only effective move had already been used, and he could see the festering poison around the dino's prior wound. Does it even effect it? Surely the residual damage had to take a toll on its body, but the thing gave no indication of it. Did poison not work on rotten flesh? With its flailing neck he didn't dare approach, nor did he want to be hit by Seek's new attack. Left with only one choice he took in a deep, steadying breath. A new Shadow Ball formed at his maw, growing quickly until it was larger than normal. The child shook beneath its might, and as he struggled to hold it he jerked his head to send it flying.

The children's attacks didn't hold the power needed to take the beast down, but together they stopped its wild writhing. Its head hung low, a moan coming from it instead of screams as it grew still under the strikes. When the dust settled it remained still, new wounds and marks littering its hide. It flinched, eyes squeezed closed as it groaned. Eleroo couldn't help but feel bad for her. Was this really okay? The undead left them no choice but.. there was nothing right about this. What if it was still in there, a sentient creature beneath all that madness? It isn't fair. Could he live with that thought..?

The kit wasn't given a chance to ponder, as the Floatzel wasted no time rushing back in. Blazing forward with a streaming Aqua Jet it careened around the dual type to knock its long neck to the side. Crushing its neck with one firm foot it brought in its signature icy fangs and crunched down on a damaged section of vertebrae. The Tropius cried a bit louder for a second, flailing its wings once more before a sickening crunch could be heard and it fell completely still. Dark blood immediately froze to the ice as the Floatzel raised his head and spat it out with same disdain as before. "Now then," It growled, its dark gaze sliding across the onlooking Pokemon. "Someone do tell me,"

"What the hell we're yall thinking?"

Shenron frowned at the Floatzel resisting the ungodly urge to curl his lip back and show teeth. It worked on his children and got them to behave. But he didn't. Simply turned his head and heaved a relieved sigh. The threats were no more and the adrenaline along with confusion was ebbing away into a dull cold ache in his limbs. Easy enough to ignore. "What were we doing..?" His tone was genuine but in his mind he was amused. Was it not obvious? They were waiting out the storm until they could leave safely. Trying not to intrude upon territory unless there was no other choice. Felix's illness was that no other choice. Shenron came close looking over Eleroo and Seek to insure they were unhurt. It was in his nature. Yet still he was curious what the kit's answer to such an odd question would be. For Shenron wouldn't have one. Other than blunt brutal honesty.
But that too was in his nature.

Never did his sights leave the orange Pokemon, its quick, intentional motions playing out as a fluid scene. The Tropius struggled, its hateful gaze as wild as her erratic movements as it tried to free itself. Their host had no intention to allow that, its strike purposeful and efficient as it finished off the undead with skills longed practiced. The beast was still, and internally the legend cursed gaining no knowledge from it prior, but no more than a calm heartbeat passed before the Sea Weasel adressed them once again. "Now then. Someone do tell me," it spoke with a firm voice, not unlike a teacher to a rowdy student. "What the hell we're yall thinking?"

There was a moment of silence between the intruding Pokemon as the Floatzel's gaze passed over each of them. For Uxie, he found this to be exceedingly odd. This Pokemon had panicked and fled the last time it saw him, now it stood unyielding before them as its hard stare rested upon him. What had changed, he wondered, what element had turned the hands of its situation. The undead? Perhaps, but then removing that threat would have been counter-intuitive.

Pastoria City || Morning [Storming]
Eleroo 150 || Seek 140


Seek started to shake. Not from fear or cold, but anger as the Floatzel addressed her team with such disgust. How dare it talk at them like that. "What were we thinking?" She repeated, her claws tapping against the roof tiles as she paced a few steps. "That we didn't want to die to that thing, duh!" His lip curled upward, eyes narrowing toward her as the Aiveon yelled. Stepping away from the corpse he wiped his mouth, and waved a paw while giving a disgruntled, "Letting a child speak- Who's in charge here?" Wasting no time Seek spat, "I am." Standing tall on her high perk with spread wings and ears she looked larger than normal, boasting confidence that could shatter worlds, but the Floatzel was not intimidated.

Scrutinizing the sheltering Charizard he pinched his brown and mumbled under his breath, "You can not be serious." Walking even closer he stepped in deep puddles without notice, as though the cold meant nothing to the water-dweller. Rain beaded and bounced off his waterproof fur, making the weasel shimmer compared to the soggy Pokemon it faced. "Where is the human?" He quipped, impatience growing clear as he searched for the missing being. "They're gone." Eleroo squeaked, his voice cracking hoarsely as he willed himself to talk. "Please, we just want to leave. We were about to when-" "Oh shush it," he cut him off, causing the Radeon to recoil into a sheepish heap.

"I told yall to leave but you're still here." Stomping before them the Floatzel was not afraid to raise its voice, arms waving as it shouted before giving an accusing point. "Now look what you've done; completely wretched that building and callin' undead into our town." Eleroo's head hung in shame, heat pulsing under his frozen cheeks. Should they, no, could they even apologize for this? "We didn't do that. The undead broke the through on their own!" Seek interjected, her claws threatening to lose purchase on the slippery roof. "And ye didn't wonder why no one was in there?" Clasping a paw around its head the Floatzel struggled to keep its cool as it continued. "That damn marsh is a cesspool for undead, and that building is a literal damn gateway to it. We keep well enough away from it, but no. You lot just put your scent all over it!"

With a loud huff Seek jumped down from the rooftop. The wind brushed her, offsetting her landing several yards, but she was able to maintain her landing and scold back with full fury. "Well why didn't you tell us that the first time?! We came from that godsforsaken place. We just want away from it and away from here." With a sodden belly Eleroo made his way toward her with hesitant steps. Maybe with him nearby she would calm down, at least he hoped so, but he could not make it to her before accusatory words berated his ears once more. "Well you should have thought about that before. Your interference could cost innocent Pokemon their lives."

"You ravaged our structures and left an undead's corpse in our city, two of 'em even! How can you find that acceptable when you knew their were 'mons livin' here?

Shenron hissed at his rebuttal of Eleroo and snarled. "What are you saying? That because you keep away from the building the undead don't come near? Surely you don't expect me to believe that" He tapped his own nose with a claw and grinned. "Our scent on the building would've changed nothing. Not a thing. Eventually something would've shambled out of there, either lost and confused or the wind blowing the wrong way. Would you have blamed something besides just that which can not change or be controlled for it?" Shenron chortled in amusement thinking of the mental gymnastics one would need to go through to do it. Would take the gold for sure. "Are you saying you all clam up and hide if an undead wanders through? Do you kill and dispose of the bodies? If that's the case, I will gladly burn these bodies to ash if it will placate you" Because in all honesty their bickering was not doing them any favors. If undead could smell then surely they could also hear.

How much is this floatzel going to yammer on about accusing them of bringing the dead? Even for Felix, he had his limits on cranky old men and this one is at the point where he would lash out. "Excuse me?! The undead don't know borders nor do they care. Look around you, they risked everything to get me back up to health and if they didn't do a thing for me, I would have been closer to never being able to fight again! What I see is a Floatzel who has no manners when it comes to helping others into being safe!" The Sylveon was furious with everything. He had it up to the very limits of his patience. If Felix didn't know any better he'd say that even he might be cranky sometimes. This was one of those times. "You care so much about wanting us out, but yet you can't see a fire type that would die from the rain?! I do and so does everyone else! I don't tend to be this way but I will defend them if it becomes needed. Now we can settle this like civilized pokemon or you can stay with your denial and find out that they speak truth." Felix was done talking and if the Floatzel was done with his temper then maybe he could accept the truth that the undead don't care about who or what is there as long as they can eat or infect or even kill.

It came as no surprise that Seek was the first to snap back, her quick tongue strangely tame as she defended her team from the Floatzel's onslaught of accusations. Though its claims were not unfounded to lay them bare before them seemed an odd choice. It revealed more than it thought. Though it was clear he had been watching them their hold on the town was not omnipotent. She was the third. The Pelipper had not made it out of the building; the morning scouts must have found their prior casualty, and it had not seen the their other threat.

As provocation brought the others in Uxie thought it passing strange that Felix showed agitation while Shenron held a calm. Both Pokemon had been exceedingly level-headed, but their prior stent of combat had revealed flipped responses. Was the emotional roller coaster too much, or was it a hormonal high? The legendary Pokemon drifted further away from both Pokemon, silently bringing himself closer to the vexed Floatzel. The others brought up a fair point, one that needed no further podding but egged him to speak on anyway. "You would then keep us from leaving?"

Pastoria City || Morning [Storming]
Eleroo 151 || Seek 141


Seek shuffled her paws to find better purchase on the muddy ground. Who did this guy think he was? The others argued back, just as annoyed with its presence as she was, but it was like talking to brick wall. Nothing they were saying was getting through to it, like he had an answer for everything. Shrenron made a strong point; nothing could smell them from inside that building. Then they would have smelled the rest of the 'mons in the city! But he didn't seem to hear, simply pacing before them while flexing its long fingers. "You came from there. Sure sounds like a scent trail to me." The Aiveon growled to herself. How, how? Wouldn't the rain and wind of washed that away? Or, were marshes different somehow?

Smacking her teeth the Aiveon was prepared to fight back, but Felix beat her to the punch. Her eyes bugged as he outed them for healing him up, but thankfully the Floatzel didn't connect those dots and instead went for the personal attack on it. "You're none too bright if you don't realize I'm looking out for my own. It's no shit they come before those trying to screw up everything we've worked for." Irritation tingled along Seek's spine. Something about that didn't seem right. Sure, you care for your own, but why make an enemy instead of an ally? "So that gives you the right to attack us first?! You went straight for the punch instead of the branch!"

Shenron continued trying to be peaceful with a great offer. "Do you kill and dispose of the bodies? If that's the case, I will gladly burn these bodies to ash if it will placate you." Crossing its arm the Floatzel pondered for a second, as though they had finally found common ground. With a small tchh a sickly grin spread as it chuffed, "The first good idea comes out. It's too bad nothing burns effectively in this downpour." Though there was small progress it was immediately backtracked as another continued. "You care so much about wanting us out, but yet you can't see a fire type that would die from the rain?!" It's dark eyes showed no humor, no amusement as it plainly said, "Little rain ain't gonna kill that lizard."

"Then if it is agreeable, we will depart. Assuming the whole of the party agrees its an appropriate time."
"You would then keep us from leaving?"
"We don't wanna be here anymore.."
"We were just going-"

With the arguing getting them no where everyone seemed to land on the same idea. They wanted to leave, he wanted them to leave, but his lips drew back as he barked. "All of yall, just shut up!" He finally snapped, puffs of frosty air existing for a single heartbeat in its maw before the rain snuffed the chill out. Any work they had put in vanished from its eyes as it stared them down, gaze shifting across them one by one as it spat. "Let me get this straight- we have a spineless yellow belly, a giant push over, a curious after thought, a wimp of a pipsqueak, and a brat on a high horse. That's your collective?"

Its paws curled into fists, and it threw one in front of itself as it continued. "Y'all think you can just come into someone else's home, trash the place, and just leave? That some excuses just make it all better, like nothing happened?!" His twin tails smacked the ground, and he huffed, "I gave you the chance to leave. I ain't given ya another." With a crank of his neck the Floatzel gurgled up a mouthful of water, and within two steps was dowsed within an Aqua Jet. Kicking off with one paw he shot forward, undeterred by the agitated Pokemon as he reached for one that had stepped forward. He squeaked, paws skittering and trying to find purchase within the mud, but Eleroo could not move before a firm paw slammed down on the back of his neck.

With a twist of his tails and kick of practiced feet the Floatzel easily turned around and shot off again while plucking the Radeon from the ground. The yoink of his scruff drove the air from his body, and the skinny Pokemon's eyes widened as the world flew by around him. Panic surged through his body, his eyes struggling to keep up with the rapidly growing distance between him and his friends. With an arc in his motion the weasel seized putting distance between them just long enough to call back, "Y'all won't be leaving until you've paid for what you've done!" With that, he continued to jet deeper into the city.

"Eleroo!" He heard Seek yowl, but already her voice sounded so far away. "Give him back!" The snatched Pokemon couldn't breathe. Any air came fast and short, his thoughts dulled as his dangling body was bumped and bruised. The stress was immediate, the panic within his mind screaming to struggle, to escape, to not let this happen, but the Radeon's body felt limp beneath the mass of his fright. His paws kicked meekly, but between the water and jerky force of their launch it was not noticeable. As his companions disappeared from sight he could only give a pitiful whine as his mind faded out in duress.


"No, no stop- give him back!!" Seek wailed, splashing forward and taking flight after after them. "Give him baaack!" The driving wind had not let up, trying its best to throw her off course, but the Aiveon refused to be stopped. She flapped with fury, propelling herself faster to catch up to the thief. She tried to stay low, but with each building she rounded she did not see the blazing blue shape and had to go higher. Soaring above the roofline the flying type fought her burning muscles to move forward, but no matter how high she flew or how far she went she did not see or hear her target. No. Where did they go? How could they have vanished?! "Eleroo?!" She cried out, but the only response was the endless drone of the boundless rain. Refusing to stop she circled above the town, eyes honed for an orange or purple blip, but the dull colors of the city were not broken.

They just.. disappeared.

As her adrenaline rush started to fade, Seek came to a still hover in the air. A wall of emotion tried to hit her, but as she reluctantly headed back toward the terminal she refused to let it in. She refused to think, to feel, to let anything enter her mind. Thoughts and emotions bashed her mental barrier, daring her to lose her stoic facade. Not yet. Her paws shook, making her course uneven as the exhaustion and cold tried to work at her. Not yet. Autopiloting to the right building, the sight of the Marsh in the distance tried to make the flying type sick, but again she fought, throwing up as many crumbling, mental walls as she could. The trip back felt endless, her resolve rattling until, finally, she touched down beside the familiar corpse of the Tropius.

Struggling to keep it together Seek kept her head down as she approached her party. If they went back inside, if she sat, if she had a chance-- The endless void was poised to last, ready to swallow her, until her sights landed squarely on the rain-filled shapes of Eleroo's muddy paw prints. Her cheeks twitched, expression quivering into heartbreak as her resolve finally broke. An internal shattering like broken glass let loose all within her mind. Driving her paws into the mud the child screamed, wailing into the air with nothing but raw emotion. Scarce tears rolled down her sodden cheeks, impossible to see within the rain. He was gone.

She looked at the others, personally tragedy clear on her face, and stared hatefully at the so called legendary. A psychic, a god, a creature of divine intervention who did nothing. Overwhelmed by every sense and thought the Aiveon charged him, stopping short from the tug of mud to rear up and send her new Air Slash flying. "Why didn't you do something?!"

Shenron snorted ready to breathe Outrage upon the body opting to tune the weasel out. Lest he say or do something that Shenron felt justified in snapping his spine in his teeth. Somehow what happened next seemed to be so... Surreal. The Floatzel surged forward and Shenron spun on his foot to protect his flame. But he wasn't going for him. Shenron's eyes could've tracked every second of the paw grabbing Eleroo by the scruff. The Floatzel planting his foot to change directions. Eleroo's eyes widening in shock and desperation as realization started to cling to him. Shenron didn't know why. After the Floatzel called back he lunged after him. Rain steaming his scales and crackling in his fire was lost. His friend was being taken..! Get him! The weight of running in the water and his paws squelching in the mud stopped his chase pretty quick. Shenron was flat on his belly with trembling arms trying to get him up. His adrenaline made his muscles ache with cold but it was futile. The Floatzel was out of sight, the rain smothering his and Eleroo's scent and his tail darting under his wing to be safe. "You... You bastard... You want us to pay but you aggravate the situation further. Oh I'll pay..." He dug his claws into a tree he collapsed near and ripped bark from it in a slow, descending motion cooling his anger for a moment. Letting him breathe and calm himself. His eyes narrowed into the direction he last saw the accursed Floatzel. Shenron would repay what they had done... He blinked slowly turning his head to look at Seek feeling sympathetic and upset for her. Not that she needed it. Shenron was furious and his sputtering tail flame roared as he let his frustration stoke it. He had to think carefully. Yes they had destroyed part of a building but it was not an unfixable amount of property damage. Definitely not worth stealing a member of their group and incurring their retaliation. Was it not a well-known thing that the living did revenge not the dead. Was the Floatzel not knowledgeable that now they had cause to attack? Even if they didn't look like a threatening group, they could cause casualties without minding. But Shenron wanted payment from the weasel.
Every pound of Eleroo from the Floatzel's flesh, fur and meat...

That bastard, he tricked them and now blames them for the destruction. Felix was entirely pissed off. He took Eleroo and is using him as a bargaining tool against them. No, the sylveon wasn't going to be manipulated by some grump. If anything was to be done, it would be to save Eleroo. Nobody, not even a floatzel is going to bind him to slave work nor the group he's with. Felix went to get some berries to take with him. He would suggest the others to do the same. Its now a rescue mission and right now any psychology would be null until later. "I'm going after them. Nobody takes Eleroo nor tells us to be their slaves. If he's going to fucking use Eleroo as a hostage, then its our job to free him." Felix was truly pissed off. He wasn't even going to give into the Floatzel's demands.

The Sylveon looked at Shenron noticing that his fire would be quite handy in helping out as a smoke screen. This wasn't about surviving an undead nightmare, it was about bonding with each other. "Shenron, Seek. If we need to force our way through that bastard's stronghold, then we need to know where he took Eleroo to. I've never thought this day would come would we have to deal with a psychopath, but Eleroo's in danger as long as we don't do anything to save him." As far as psychopaths go, that Floatzel would likely go back on his word and keep Eleroo away from them to make an example of his own point. If they have to kill the Floatzel, then its possibly the only way to save Eleroo.

❖ Pastoria City + Outside the Terminal Building + Dawn + 74 ❖


There was a sense of danger clinging to the air around them. It grew thick and heavy, but even as the Floatzel made it's stance clear Uxie felt no deceit in its words. It wholly believed all that it said, their actions a personal attack on its livelihood. Though perspective could warp a situation there was no denying the hurt it felt from them and the damage that had indeed been done to the building they were sheltered in. The tension strengthened, raw emotion smothering the idea of a right and wrong side.

And then, it snapped. In a flash of orange and blue the tension was exchanged for panic as the blazing fast weasel made off with their youngest. Eleroo squealed, a note of pure terror ringing out as the pair's shape rapidly shrunk. The winged Pokemon took after them, their ability severely hampered by the storm about them. He could stop it was a Psychic, but the legend withheld. If the Floatzel struggled the child could be injured, his type disadvantage increasing his risk.

The ever observant Uxie watched as the thief disappeared into the city and each flying Pokemon failed the chase in turn. He did not move, making no effort to prevent the kidnapping. He remained in place, with only the small bobs in his levitation shifting him as he awaited the other's return. Seek descended from the sky with her failure plain upon her face. For a few seconds she seemed ready to take charge, to use her learned leadership to make a plan and take a stand.

But that did not last. Unable to bear her own burden the child broke down, releasing a guttural wail of grief. The scene was not unexpected but hard to watch nonetheless. The change of pace was jarring, but the pixie was caught by surprise as the Aiveon turned that emotion on him. "Why didn't you do something?!" Her words nearly missed him, lost beneath the hiss of her strike that he swerved away from. The sting of the cut was instant, his body unused to receiving a hit.

For the first time that decade the legend felt anger boil within him. To let an insolent child place a mark upon him. For her to blame him when he was not involved. Such audacity would not be tolerated. Locking her down with his Psychic he cut her tantrum short.

"You impudent child," he spoke with a chilling firmness, his body growing tense as he continued. "You would wish him to be wounded? The boy could barely handle being lifted by my power. To be restrained by it, even by proximity, would have caused him great harm." Tightening his grasp the legend watched the child's eyes bug out as he installed a lesson by example. "Do you really believe that delicate being could handle this with his typing?"

Pastoria City || Morning [Storming]
Eleroo 151 || Seek 142


Seek didn't want to believe it. It just.. couldn't be real. Screaming into the sky she continued to flap and beat her wings like a trapped animal. How?! How did they let that happen? Of those who sat back why didn't the psychic prevent this?! Wheezing on sticky breaths the Aiveon suddenly could not move. Her lungs ceased, air struggling to move as her body was crushed and lifted by an invisible force. "You impudent child." Uxie voice was still and cold, nearly foreign sounding as psychic energy flared around him. It was frightening to say the least, to watch such a lax Pokemon to change so drastically. Panic flooded her senses, her emotional state rocked even further as she tried desperately to free herself from his grasp. Though she writhed her struggling did little aside from make her muscles burn. It was insulting, but it just proved her point further; this was child's play for him, so why didn't he save Eleroo like this?

Her breath came on hard inhales as her lungs were restricted. "You could have done this-" she gasped, forcing her chest to expand. "To them!" The Floatzel had feared him before. If he felt this sort of power there was no doubt he would ran for his life instead! Flexing her legs with a massive effort the Aiveon extended her claws and truck vainly at the air before her. "Worthless," she started, an unknown insult clinging to her teeth, but before it could come to fruition all thought was smothered beneath intense pain. Like an invisible fist closing around her the force crushed down on her delicate body. The Aiveon's hollow bones screamed, the strain nearly too much for them to bare. Her chest flattened, air unable to pass as her maw hung open in a silent scream and eyes bugged with terror. Did he want to kill her now?!

"You would wish him to be wounded? The boy could barely handle being lifted by my power. To be restrained by it, even by proximity, would have caused him great harm." The pixie scolded her but words were behind a sheet of glass as her ears popped under the strain. Her feet trembled, rain hitting her tongue and tantalizing her with the thought of drowning. The forced increased, ever closer to snapping her in half. Her helmet rolled off, darkness creeping into her vision as panic overtook thought. She was completely helpless. "Do you really believe that delicate being could handle this with his typing?" ....

Then, as suddenly as it came, the power left. Like the flip of a switch the hold released itself and Seek fell to the ground with an ungraceful thud. A loud, terrified wheeze could be heard as she took in a gasping breath, and she couldn't think of anything aside from that sweet oxygen for several more inhales. Eleroo. He held back because of him? Her memory of the rooftop was vague at best but she did recall Eleroo showing some discomfort after his lift. Had the legend really recalled that moment and thought it through, or was it just an excuse to cover his own hide? He dared do that to her, to harm another child, what made the theft any different when it had a worth cause?

With her breathe under control the Aiveon wriggled back onto her paws and backed away from the legend before taking a defensive stance. With mud slathered across her pelt she cared not for the cold brush against her chest as she snapped with a trembling voice. "You- You- You jerk! You're sick! You're cruel and sick! You say it's for him but then you do that?! You're messed up!" Weren't legends supposed to be protectors?? Caretakers of the good and innocent. Of all the Pokemon around them wasn't Eleroo the most deserving of a guardian? "What sort of god are you?!" Despite her rage and twitching muscles the Aiveon could will herself to strike again. The dumb, blank, serene look to its face seem to tell of a 'you know I'm right' that she could not fight. That her prior strike had done nothing but cause her more pain. It was getting her no closer to Eleroo. She was still just as useless and no better than Uxie here.

Tears lost to the rain continued to roll down her cheeks as her rant died away. Was this the end? Could she really do nothing? She recalled her own capture when the crazed Sceptile snatched her away. The way he dangled her before them, mocking them, had Eleroo felt like she did now? How had he managed to find her? I never asked him. He had no wings and could barely run at that point. The others? Jerome and Vier were long gone.. Shenron? No, he would have advice but not the specifics she was looking for. Felix hadn't been there but his point from earlier echoed in her mind. 'If we need to force our way through that bastard's stronghold, then we need to know where he took Eleroo to.' Okay. Eleroo wouldn't have known where the Sceptile took her, but for her it was a starting point.

Holding her stance Seek tried to pull herself together. Speaking with the same firmness Uxie had she barely kept a growl from entering her voice. "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?" What could it claim to have done? Open a door, clear a jump, talk about the weather? Yeah, real good use of a god. "Cause really, if you aren't going to help then what use are you."
