The Battle Castle || Midday
Cinder 174 || Faux 133


Faux was ready to go, and while she waited for the others gave her face a quick wash. The sooner they left the sooner they'd be back, and she could know they were all in a safe environment. “Squirt here is bored. We’re going to take a stroll I think.” Rebel voiced calmly, already heading out. "What? Now? But we-" Cinder gasped, her voice filled with concern above all the other bubbling emotions. Why, why now? She couldn't help but feel like it was her fault. Between all the yelling and griping it hadn't been a pleasant place to be, and no one could fault wanting some fresh air. Regardless if that was the reason or not the pair seemed adamant on taking a walk and made their way to the door. “I’ll be back soon!! Bye guys!” Miyu chirped, her sweet voice breaking through to get a quick, "have fun!" What was she to say, don't go, be quick, please stay? That kid deserved so much, and being rude was not one of those things.

"Be safe!" Mel called out as well, the echoing of her voice making it painfully clear how empty the room was now. Cinder shuffled, her breath tense and fast as she tried to ignore the feeling. Maybe Faux had the right idea, and now was as good a time as any to get going. Getting to her paws she took a couple of stiff steps toward the door when a voice rejoined the group. ”I’m here, sorry. I was just looking around to see how much I would have to use my power to detect undead.” Feeling her pelt prickle the Quilava clenched her jaw to prevent the snide remark from sneaking out. You think we wouldn't secure our own base? After everything that had happened it was an insult for her to even consider the idea.

”So what’s the plan?” Bastet followed up, with Mathias quickly echoing a similar thought. Faux was grinding her teeth again, something she would undoubtedly feel later, but she was grateful for both Pokemon's willingness to work with them. "Investigating the Battle Tower, starting now. Once we survey our destination we will know if the group must split or not." She flicked her tails, signalling for them all to head out, but instead she was met with protest. "Shouldn't we wait for the others?" The fox hesitated for only a heartbeat. Yes, they should, but despite how lax they had been they needed these supplies. "They know where we are headed and where to meet up with us." Faux said calmly, as though nothing had changed. This was not some spur movement, nor had their shelter changed; the others could find them all one way or another.

However, despite the confidence in her voice the Vulpix doubted the safety of her companions. That demon could still be outside, and if it chose to pick off stragglers there was little any of them could do about it... "I'm back, I'm back!" A peppy cry soared through the room as a blue blur barrelled past the fox and broke her train of thought. "Sorry I took so long!" "Welcome back." Melanie spoke with much warmth to her voice, revitalized as her partner rejoined them. Without any hesitation he started to bind her leg, a skill Faux never knew him to have, but his work was quick and efficient, and she could once again bark, "Good, now let's move out." This time she did not wait for argument, and her multiple tails disappeared through the threshold.

Stiffly padding after her Cinder trotted at her own pace. Attempting to let the fresh air soothe her rattled nerves she wanted to rid herself of all those past transgressions. Curiosity was the first thing to come to mind, to ask where Etincelle learned such a trick and why he had forgotten it earlier, but several fluffy tails forced her paw. Faux had taken the lead, of course, but as the resident expert on the Battle Frontier Cinder knew that was her rightful spot. Quickening her pace she shouldered her way past the fox to the head of the group, and called back to the others, "'Tower usually got the most traffic and hype, so there should be multiple lifts. Odds are one of them is in good condition still."

The Battle Castle | Midday
Etincelle 155 | Melanie 155


Wiping off the last of the smudging and fluffing up his pelt to brush off any excess dust Etincelle stood proudly before his handiwork. Somehow, it just felt right in his paws, and while not the nicest looking splint it would more than suffice for their short journey. "Good, now let's move out." Faux was quick to usher them along, giving the Electrike no time to settle or bask in his emotions. With a gentle nudge from the Ninetales the pair started to make their way forward, their steps easily falling inline with one another as they moved in unison. Tossing his head back Etin yipped with a cheery smile, "Come on, Arry!" His short tails wagged as he rested his gaze upon the child, but in the same breath he realized their other one was nowhere in sight. Cocking his head to the side he asked Mel ever so gently, "Where's Miyu, and Rebel?"

As the pair breached the threshold and could feel the cool breeze and warm sun, Melanie took a few moments to take it all in. Sure, they had been outside not that long ago, but the stark sensation was pleasurable nonetheless. "They were feeling jittery and went for a walk. They'll probably be back before us~" She soothed, reasurring the smaller Pokemon as their paws met the stone pathway. Etincelle adjusted their course to follow the others, though they were still close enough for Melanie to hair their steps, and said nothing more on the matter. Though her leg was still stiff and in agony the Ninetales grew more confident with each step, and dared to put more weight on her leg as they walked. Were she not so painfully aware of the injury the fox could almost fool herself that it had not happened.

A peaceful walk. The idea sounded lovely, and were it not for the circumstances Etincelle would have requested the same. Pressing slightly closer to Melanie, he could almost imagine this walk to be said stroll, except the griping was quick to start up once again. "'Tower usually got the most traffic and hype, so there should be multiple lifts. Odds are one of them is in good condition still." His brow flattened, confused as to why she chose to blurt out the extra information. Couldn't they just enjoy the fresh air while they had the chance? By the next breath the moment seemed to pass, and instead the electric type chose to fill the air with conversation. Looking at their newest companions he tried to recall the intros they had given him. "You two said you're from Pallet, right? Is that far from here?" As a wild Hoenn Pokemon the Electrike had little concept of foreign locations, and hoped to stir some sort of small talk from it.

Arry looks around for Miyu but she wasn't around. Did they leave without telling him goodbye? He was about ready to cry as his friend was nowhere to bee seen. The others was talking and soon some tears welled up. "'Tower usually got the most traffic and hype, so there should be multiple lifts. Odds are one of them is in good condition still." Without Miyu though, it would be hard for him to see stars with her. All he could hope is that Miyu will be okay where ever she is. Even then, Arry still spat out what he was gonna say to Cinder. "Cinder, I can't see Miyu anywhere! She ran away!" Not only that, Rebel was also gone so that makes it even more difficult to learn how to fight and protect the others. Guess that only leaves those here that can teach him. Arry looks at Mathias seeing that he maybe the one to teach him but the Espeon would be more fitting. Either way, that tower will be climbed and he will see the stars. He's just gotta see them.

"'Tower usually got the most traffic and hype, so there should be multiple lifts. Odds are one of them is in good condition still." That old tower? Mathias wasn't sure if there would be a lift in good condition but knowing humans, they always had a backup plan in case the power was completely out. Though there was a risk. The Undead would likely be hiding behind the doors. So if one of the lifts does work. It would likely need an electric type to send an electrical current into the generator. However there was also a risk that the humans might have left some explosive traps via claymore mines or something or something of the sort. Regardless, Bast had been in the military enough to know that this would be unlikely since Battle Tower wouldn't have much importants to the military. This had Mathias thinking. Maybe some of the terminals that stores the final moments when the nightmare started would be in the data banks. Then again, he's as clueless to computers as an old person would be.

Bastet heard Arry and she felt sad for the kid. His best friend had ran off and who knows where she would be now. The Espeon used her power to see into Arry's mind to see why he was scared and alone. After seeing the incidents that had occurred she understood something. This kid was way to innocent and scared of fights. This looks like it will be a team effort to help him face his fears. There was also one other thing. He sees Miyu as his best friend in the world. This touched her heart quite a lot. She then asked. "What chances are there that we maybe facing some formidable undead in the tower?"

Mathias didn't pay that no mind, he always liked a good challenge to get stronger then maybe he could protect the others more better. Bastet though was more useful in Psychic combat, he was more better with close range and burning things at point blank if it came to that. The Charizard then responded to Etin's question "Pallet Town? Well, its a quite town in the Kanto Region. Not to many people live there."

Cinder 175 || Faux 134


The vexed Quilava held her head and ears high as she walked. Out of all these Pokemon she was their resident Battle Frontier expert and she wanted to be respected as so. Stamping her paws hard against the ground with each step Cinder flexed her jaw side to side, her irritation not allowing her to settle either physically or on that thought. Sure, she did know the most, but who was she claim and forcibly take respect? It made her stomach turn, her own anger making the feeling bubble up to her throat as she delved deeper into her own attitude. Had it not been for a squealing voice she could have screamed from her own frustration, but instead her ears were sent in the direction of the cry and followed quickly by her entire head. "Cinder, I can't see Miyu anywhere! She ran away!"

The void feeling of walking away from the Battle Castle without the Eevee beside them was palpable, but hearing Arry's fervent cries did not make it any better. "No no," she soothed, eyes going wide and teeth awkwardly clenched as she vainly tried to pacify the child. "She's fine, she's fine. Miyu just went for a walk with Rebel. They needed some time away and they'll be back, okay?" Such attempts to be calmly felt forgein in her tongue, and silently the Quilava wished Miyu were here to help instead. But if she was this wouldn't be happening. With an awkward forced smile, the Cinder pointed her snout forward once more, and tried to distract herself with measuring the amounts of steps they would take before reaching their destination.


Faux was quiet. Her fur prickled with unease, and her mind screamed to put the other fire type back in her place, but she withheld her tongue for the greater good. There was no point in arguing or starting another fight, and while the information she had given was moot it was not invalid. "You two said you're from Pallet, right? Is that far from here?" Etincelle chirped, his willingness to start conversation a welcome distraction for the fox. "Pallet Town? Well, its a quite town in the Kanto Region. Not too many people live there." As a Kanto native herself the fox knew that to be correct. The quiet, rustic town was a breath of fresh air compared to the many, more developed cities.

However, it did not answer the question that had been asked. Injecting herself into their conversation the fox answered plainly, "The Johto region here is attached to Kanto, though its mostly a harsh, tall mountain that combines them." Mount Silver was not a place for the faint of heart, and the fox could not imagine how much more unforgiving it had become with the epidemic. "Pallet would be one of the closest cities relatively speaking, but it's far to the east and it would be a long journey on foot."

Etincelle 156 || Melanie 156


"Pallet Town? Well, its a quiet town in the Kanto Region. Not too many people live there." The small Pokemon cocked his head to one side as he pondered the idea of a quiet town. Humans were always busy and loud, it was hard to imagine any sort of settlement being silent like they were these days. "The Johto region here is attached to Kanto, though its mostly a harsh, tall mountain that combines them." Faux informed him, her description vivid enough for the electric type to picture it. "Pallet would be one of the closest cities relatively speaking, but it's far to the east and it would be a long journey on foot."
Etincelle had traveled a long, hard road to get to this place. He had run across mountains, forests, and beaches in his plight, none of which were easy roads, but hearing Faux discribe something as long and harsh was enough to make his knees buckle. "Well, maybe it's been sheltered from all this then. Staying quiet and blending in, and a rough path to get there, may as well be a sort of natural protection." Letting his paws scuff the ground as he walked the Electrike could hardly believe his own musings. His home, well, one of them, had been a secluded cabin deep on a mountain, and it was still annihilated.

"What chances are there that we may be facing some formidable undead in the Tower?" The honest and concerned question reminded the fox that the newcomers had not seen or been part of the horrible battles prior. She had been wounded in each, nearly dying and left with lasting damage, and here they were dragging them along without so much as a warning. "Given what this place has already shown us I'd say it's very high." It was a grim outlook but a realistic one. The fox turned her head to the side, shying her eyes away though they could not see the others expressions. "Likely a small elite group, if we run into something." Had they seen the remains of the Battle Arcade? She could only imagine what it looked like now, but her mental imagine was near impossible to miss.

With a rough swallow the fox realized that between Etincelle's inquiry and her own bluntness they were dropping the mood. "Hopefully we'll get lucky. Find stuff quickly, not have to go in very deep, in and out without much problem." She spoke quickly in a rushed attempt to mend the conversation. Its not like she wanted to run into strong foes, but everywhere they had been since Olivine to now seemed to have them just around the corner.

Arry heard Cinder and she was sure that Miyu will be back. Maybe he could impress her by being a brave boy again. "She's fine, she's fine. Miyu just went for a walk with Rebel. They needed some time away and they'll be back, okay?" He was a bit more happy and was wanting to go help in the tower if the adults couldn't get into places where he could. The question was, is it safe for him to do it alone? No, he didn't trust being by himself if he was to go into smaller places. "Am I gonna have to go into small spaces where everyone else can't go in?" If so then likely that espeon would have to help guide him if possible.

OoC)) short post. Can't really think of anything else with Arry at the moment.

Cinder 176 || Faux 135


"Well, maybe it's been sheltered from all this then. Staying quiet and blending in, and a rough path to get there, may as well be a sort of natural protection." A tiny noise escaped Faux's maw at such wishful thinking. Pallet was not some tucked away town far from the public eye. "The path is only rough from our direction. It's actually a fairly open and exposed route to it once you pass the mountains." While she was not intending to bring the Electriek down the realist in her could not stand by without correcting him. Nothing was safe or sacred in this new world, and hanging on to such thoughts would only cause more suffering down the road.

"What chances are there that we may be facing some formidable undead in the Tower?" Faux's ears turned, pleased to hear a more sensible question, but before she could reply the other fox did. "Given what this place has already shown us I'd say it's very high. Likely a small elite group, if we run into something." She wasn't wrong; that was what they had witnessed before, and based solely on their prior run-ins they could assume the worst. Yet the fox wasn't satisfied by the thought. "Undead can be crafty but are generally predictable. The real threat is other living that have taken up residence in it." The Arcade had opened her eyes to more side effects to the sickness. Not all Pokemon adapted or adjusted, and if they had to fight another nightmare group like the last Faux doubted their ragged group would survive.

"Am I gonna have to go into small spaces where everyone else can't go in?" With a firm chuckle Cinder tossed her head back towards the kid once more. "Only if we need you to, but I know you'll be the best at it if we do." Her heart was in pieces as she spoke. Miyu could have fit in even smaller places, especially given the... pliable nature of her body in comparison, but she wasn't going take this from him. The kid needed to feel valid too, and while she couldn't predict if they needed such a thing he certainly would be their go to kiddo.
Forcing a skip in her step the Quilava hurried them along. The faster they got there the sooner they would be out of the open and finding much needed supplies. As the massive Tower got closer and closer the fire type wondered if they really would find anything worth while. Melanie desperately needed help, and her own aching body said everything else did too. As they passed the prior commerce area Cinder wondered if it would be worth their time to search it, but the duty stalls did not give her much hope.

Etincelle 157 || Melanie 157


As Etincelle walked the rough hewn stones reminded his pads so much of the thick, compact dirt of the mountains and the stone cliffs of his birth. It felt so much like home, of things and places he had not felt in so long that it was nearly making him sick. An awkward smile meant to fight back tears etched itself on his maw as he pressed more firmly against Melanie. That was then, and he knew he could not go back to the dear past. Had he caused a similar feeling from asking a personal question? With another scuff of his paw he could only hope not and push the feeling aside. "Am I gonna have to go into small spaces where everyone else can't go in?" Arry asked, a welcome distraction from his prior thoughts. "If you don't want to I could." He offered warmly, hoping to ease the kid's nerves if he was worried.

"Undead can be crafty but are generally predictable. The real threat is other living that have taken up residence in it." Faux continued off of her thoughts, echoing everyone's experience in the hell that was the arcade. These two were lucky to not have experienced that, and the pain in her leg was nothing compared to the trauma she would carry. "Regardless, let's just hope its abandoned and be ready if it's not." Suddenly, the fox was swirling in doubts. What if they weren't ready? What if they couldn't handle it? Most of them were in rough shape, and with Rebel out their threat levels had dropped as well. It's mostly for me. If she hadn't overdone it maybe they could have put off his trip..

"We're almost there!" Etincelle chirped, his voice dragging the fox out of her thoughts as his presence left her side and bound forward. By others descriptions she could assume this tower was, well, a massive building towering into the sky. Wouldn't it be visible from the Battle Castle and all the way here? Was he saying it for her sake? "It's like it's reaching for the clouds," he gasped confirming for the fox he was describing it for her. She waited for his third observation, or at least the sound of his pawsteps to resume, but neither occurred. The Electrike had frozen in place, moving only to get out of Melanies way as she reached in. "Look- Some of the glass on the upperfloors. I think its broken."
