Pastoria Gym || Morning [Storming]
Eleroo 151 || Seek 170
For a few seconds Seek was completely silent. Standing with her mouth agape, she stared blankly at the Swampert as if waiting for him to continue. There had to be more, an extended explanation that made sense of all this, just something
she could wrap her head around, but as the seconds ticked by she would only receive more questions from her companion. "The Radeon are your only chance? What do you mean by that if I may ask?"
The Swampert sighed, as if tired out by a question he had been asked too many times. "We must take back our home."
It felt simple, if not obvious to hear from these displaced Pokemon, but nothing felt right
to her disbelieving ears. "The Radeon are the only true warriors we have left to irradiate the undead."
East clarified, a heated passion to his voice. "Its only fair. They use our Marsh, so we use their power."
A trickling, prickling heat bubbled up beneath her pelt as Seek realized that this wasn't some misunderstanding. Was everything
intentional? Is that why they weren't driven out, why she was attacked but he wasn't, why Eleroo was snatched when they were about to leave? "You're all insane."
She gasped, unable to hold the words in any longer. Insane. They were all insane, crazy lunatics! Not like the Sceptile that tortured her, but nutty all the same for thinking they could fight anything
by abusing innocent eeveelutions.
Felix's voice was a welcomed change, a Pokemon with reason speaking about their feeble companion, but Seek's face twisted in horror as he spoke of both allowing these Pokemon to use Eleroo and even assisting
their efforts. "What are thinking?!"
She exclaims, her voice growing flustered as her companion spoke of treason. "For legends sake he gets spooked by his own ears."
Was she the only sane Pokemon left?! "I saw one out there with crazy eyes. Nothing'll change until we deal with it."
East's eyes were always cold, but as he angled them to the floor Seek could feel the weight in his words. "He is but a child."
Uxie reminded all in the audience, but his pertinent point was wholly ignored.
These Pokemon were dead serious about this, frighteningly so for the lengths they would go to, but her own thoughts were thrown for a whirlwind as she suddenly recalled a memory. It was the time of their evolution, legends that felt so far away, and how bizarre it had felt. Eleroo had risen from a sickly bog, his body reborn from surprise evolution. He had been so scared, so unsure of himself and this foreign form... and then another Eevee fell victim to the same swamp. The memory felt faded, forgotten, but Seek could clearly remember how it killed without lifting a paw, without seeming to try or even regret... and the horror in Eleroo's eyes to think he had become the same creature.
Gritting her teeth Seek swore to never allow such a thing to happen, especially not in the hands of these monsters. Despite Felix's proposition nether water type commented, their arguments surprisingly sparse for ones who had just revealed their true intentions. Were they expecting them to just see their side as just? ”If you guys want to agree with this then I think they would forgive us on the things that happened.”
Felix asked for agreement, his voice disturbingly accepting, as if the simple cost of their weakest link was a fair trade to level the playing field. As if their
forgiveness was something that mattered. Uxie probed a question, and though it was spoken impartially Seek could swear even he too was moved by such a shocking proposal.
A sickening, visceral feeling overtook the Aiveon. She had been pissed at Felix before, enraged even, but never had she been wholly disgusted by him. Her eyes widened, lips pulling back with shock as a growl rumbled through her throat. "No ones sending Eleroo into combat."
She roared, her glinting teeth pointing first toward the Sylveon then turning toward the water types. "I would never allow such a thing."
The sweet child was already trapped in this messed up world, a delicate flower in a wasteland. This innocent Pokemon, one who was amazed by by raindrops, sent off to fight the undead as if he were a Champion's Pokemon. How dare
either group even consider such an action. "Eleroo will never be your puppet!"
