❖ Pastoria City + Pastoria Gym + Morning + 99 ❖


The legend could feel his skin crawling as the negativity ever increased. A feeling of impending doom, or perhaps simply implosion, scoured the remaining conversation as it crumbled. Progress had been little to none throughout, but after divulging into personal judgements and attacks it only turned to a steep tumble. Uxie chose to tune out, his mind privy only to moments of importance. Felix claimed cowardice, and with it, Seek finally broke. She went off on the others, her words not of interest to him until the end of her rant.

"Legends, if you ask me you're all a bunch of cowards. Deal with your own problems and leave all of us out of it!"

The Sylveon had offered the point and the other Pokemon clung to it. "You cowardly rodent... How dare you..!" Shenron snapped back as first blood was drawn, rage sparked and even his thoughtful attempts dying away. The room bellowed, chaos daring to overflow as the anemic crowd finally awoke. Yet no matter the cacophony that filled the space it was the dragon's thoughts that rang true in his ears.

"Or have you not realized your blind silly ideals have caused your "warriors" to abandon this suicide cult?"

Though he did not comment the legend commended the dragon's deduction, for he knew he was no longer the only one who realized it.; there were no Radeon left here. There were no 'warriors' to defend the city stronghold these Pokemon had wandered in to. If they were wiped out or defected was unverified, but their intentions made clear from this failed reasoning made it clear these strong Pokemon had grown complacent after resting upon their laurels.

Eleroo 158 || Seek 178


Seek could feel a dreadful weight upon herself. No longer was it only on her shoulders, now it weighed heavy in her belly, her paws, her very wings felt too heavy to lift. The room quickly became deafening, the uproar echoed by the slapping of fins, leaves, and jowls as miniature arguments broke out. There was something in East's eyes, that same sort of bitter contempt and disdain they had received outside, yet for some reason now it felt all the more personal. Having messed up wasn't even a thought to her, no, this never had a chance of going well, but as the Swampert parted his maw and roared with the same bitterness Seek felt her unbridled confidence shrink away to a pitiful flicker. Truly, she knew not how to proceed any further while knowing full well they could not back down.

As Shenron backed her up, backed Felix's point up, she felt some meager amounts of confidence restore, but the looks on the water types' faces refused to let her guard down. "This is not survival, you are all cowering and hiding here. To live is to survive, you disgrace yourselves.." Following her companions lead she forced herself to stand just a bit taller, and refusing to regret her choice of words she bore her own daggers into the others. Her body was trembling slightly from the pulsing emotion. As unsure as she felt she stood by her words and let the dragon empower her to continue. "Being your puppet is not a higher purpose, its enslavement. For something you don't have enough of a spine to deal with!"

"Seek, stop!" Eleroo wailed, scrabbling his paws against the side of the plastic prison as he begged her to keep her mouth shut. He shuffled and moved, his adrenaline finally overpowering his stupor and letting him come back to life. He pushed and turned, getting rowdy and knocking the container about as he scratched. "Whether you accept it or not, as a Radeon he is indebted to this swamp." The leader roared as he took lumbering steps closer, his heavy steps enough to rock their floating platform. Eleroo stopped scratching, though hard kick against the container was enough to toss him from his paws for just a moment. A sharp squeal made its way from his maw. "Stop it..!" He sobbed, his own wounds hurting in memory as he stood again and clasped his teeth around the measly grate.

That sound was her breaking point, the pain in her cheek telling her heavy paws to move. No matter how loud the other Pokemon had become Eleroo was all she could hear and she could no longer stand by in her failure attempt at diplomacy. "Leave. Him. Alone! Seek barked, her wings fanning out and parcel abandoned as she lunged forward and wrapped her body around the crate. "I've had enough of this charade! We're leaving, end of story!" East growled, paws grabbing at the crate in an effort to shake her off but Seek would not give in so easy. "You should be honored to be exalted!" The Swampert roared, their entire talk clearly doing nothing to persuade him  as he shot his own burst of water forward. A sharp pain pierced the child's shoulders as, without a free hand, East sunk his ice cold fangs into her back.

Great Marsh|Morning (151)

Seemed like things dissolved into chaos quickly. His wings spread behind him making him seem much larger. Words no longer sufficed and violence was the only answer. Hellfire spilled from his mouth as he stomped closer snarling and snapping. His words sizzling and burning as he snarled. "You take one more step mud fish and I'll burn this building to the ground. With you and your sheep inside" They had tried to be diplomatic. Tried to be reasonable. But this insistence that a kit not born here, not loyal to these lands should help was a really good joke. Except they were serious. Dead serious. But the one who died would be Eleroo if they had their way. Which he would not allow. Shenron turned his flaming maw to East but kept an eye on the Swampert. How dare he... While he was at a sharp disadvantage, this was his teammate. This was a bad situation and was getting worse..!

Battle broke out and it was because they wanted Eleroo to be forced into serving them. He was right, they're nothing but lowly cowards. Felix's feelers had raised up and lashed out at East wrapping around his neck and right arm. "Get off her!" Though normally he wouldn't lash out if it was a fair battle but this was more of an unfair battle. He then shot the Swampert a very angry look. The negotiations failed to produce any results and it had came to this. "What Arceus damned thing you did was not worthy of any leadership! We tried to be reasonable! We tried to tell you that we was meaning no harm! Yet you had your Golduck put stuff in my head and tried to force me to turn against my allies! This is cowardice! You hide inside a human structure and mind you that the undead can still get in here!" Felix squeezed a bit on East's throat and had his moonblast readied to be fired at the swampert. He makes one sudden move to attack or to harm Eleroo, the moonblast will go through his chest. However he also had a sense of dread that there is something coming and it was hungry.

Eleroo 158 || Seek 178


It was the same spot. As the cold creep instantly shot throughout her body Seek was reminded of the last time East had bitten her. It was only a few seconds but her mind whirled with thought. What if he was sick, what if she got sick? There was no way, there were too many Pokemon here to allow the disease to fester. She was weak to ice now, would this take her down? Was he trying to break her spine, to metaphorically break her wings? Then her mind snapped back to reality as he tried to throw her. This time, there was no rain, no mud to ground her, and spreading her wings through the pain the Aiveon forced drag to keep her locked the crate. It wasn't enough, and were it not for Felix's iron grip she would have been bait for the pools or the crowd. "Get off her!" He ordered, and while he did not release her from his icy grip the shaking stopped.

Eleroo practically screamed as he sobbed, having been tossed and thrown about in his small prison. Felix yowled, his voice carrying through the room though Eleroo could hardly focus on the exchange of words. With the Sylveon restraining East the Floatzel could no longer shake the pair of Eeveelutions, and his world stopped shaking for moment until his container clunked heavily on the floor. Though he he felt unwell and unsure of the world about him, his perceptions completely distorted by the tiny windows of visiiblity, there was no mistaking Seek's angry grunts as she kicked and managed to rip herself free from the weasels grasp.

Were the drop not short she would not have landed on her paws, the burning cold pain in her back enough to rock her balance. "Eleroo!" She gasped, grabbed at the container once again with her claws. East growled, water cloaking his body as his tails spun for a priority Aqua Jet. With a hard beat of the floor he dashed, racing forward to both break the grasp Felix had on him and sneak past his oncoming attack. "Eleroo- just burn.. through the container!" Seek grunted before giving a loud squeal as someone from the audience braved adding a spurt of water her way. The sound was echoed by Eleroo, the panic in his cry almost as telling as his meek, "I-I-I.. I c-cant.." If he broke free.. what would they do to him, to his friends..? As he shook his head the Radeon could feel his stomach turning and daring to spit the acid needed for just that, but he refused it freedom.

Dangit Eleroo. The noise in the room grew louder, the entire space seeming to shake as the watching Pokemon started to panic on top of riot. Shenron's voice was strong and familiar, a deep seriousness lacing his words. "You take one more step Mud Fish and I'll burn this building to the ground. With you and your sheep inside." These Pokemon would be foolish to disregard him, and the Swampert was quick to respond. "You're out of your element, dragon!" He did not need to move to squash their threats. With his own inhale another deadly stream of water raced toward the tiny group, their options of dodging the girthy blast limited as Seek pressed herself to the ground. Her ears screamed as though they were underwater, the air quickly growing as moist as it was outside. What have I done? Creeping forward on her belly the Aiveon scrabbled at the metal grate on the cage, but her paws just could not undo the spring latch. Another blast of water raced, thumping her in the side and rolling her over. As panic overtook the crowd and their bystander effect started to wane blasts of water came from all directions, daring to drown the unwelcome Pokemon as they were showered from all sides. Desperately reaching her paws through the grates to hold onto the crate the Aiveon wailed. "You gotta get out!"

Great Marsh|Morning (152)

All training he ever went through flooded his brain. You can't dodge, dig in. One savage infuriated roar and he slid his right foot back and braced his weight on the left. Protect your flame and face. If you get wet you can't spit fire... His wings wrapped around him and his arms crossed at his chest. To hide his face and shoulder the pressure. It would hurt. Bite. His scales would not forgive him but... It was better then being sent flying backwards into the pool or landing on a teammate. The room descended into chaos. He only hoped his threat rang with them and they didn't assist the Swampert in attacking.
Otherwise they maybe in trouble...

His grip was broken. East had gotten free and it made him a bit more aware that as long as East is still mobile and free, he could make things harder for them. Then the feeling of dread was more greater not from what would be an oncoming attack from the Swampert but his own words, the undead can get in still. All there needed to be is a little bit of blood to lure the undead towards their location. Getting hit by that attack did launch him back a little bit but he rebounded off the wall and landed on the floor. A little something he learned watching tv with his trainer on their day off. The pain though from the hit did make him sore. Wait, Seek was bleeding a bit and that meant that the threat is now very much real. "You gotta get out!" There was little time left and they need to get Eleroo out before things reach a deadly turn to the worst.

Felix then raced over to help Seek. They wasn't going to let Eleroo fall or be taken. The pressure was getting very strong from the water buildup as well. "Eleroo, I know your scared and its alright to be scared. I'm scared too but I'm more afraid what might happen if I didn't do what I'm doing. Sometimes the best bravery comes from when you fear something that you know might happen if you didn't do it." The Sylveon turns his head and nods to Seek for them to open the kennel up for Eleroo to get out. "Seek, lets get this open, he'll hesitate if it risks harming Eleroo." Then his feeling of the threat that was hungry was more greater than before. He might not be psychic but to know how the undead act and the fact that their ravenous hunger for living flesh and meat is not an argument when it has been proven true. Blood, even in the slightest cut or drip can attract them easily.

❖ Pastoria City + Pastoria Gym + Morning + 100 ❖


And then, as if a fatigued dam had burst, the room exploded into chaos. The squabbling from before was but a mild chatter compared to the uproar that ensued. The crowd held nothing back, yelling at one another as well as the minimal intruders. Whether they agreed with their leader or not they found reason to bicker, and even fight as their ranged attacks hit one another instead of their intended targets. What a pity, the legend thought, that civil Pokemon could devolve so quickly.

With them came a great surge in energy. Intense, near electric feeling as emotions soared like the streams of water aimed toward them. Dipping and dodging, the legend moved himself closer to the ground to become a less prominent or susceptible target. The whizzing spurts of liquid still soared about them, soaking the ground and moistening the air.

Their looming opponent made his presence known, the deadly stream of water he released just short of a tidal wave worth as it made contact on them. Each Pokemon braced in their own way, Uxie undoing his own work by rising back into the air and above the stream. It gushed by, the volume barely able to be contained as the platform attempted to drain. Uxie watched the others, taking in their choice of defense and how none of them held onto their token items. It was not surprising, but after the effort one would expect them to take a bit more care--

A blast of water struck him in the back of the head.

It was not powerful or deadly, but the bolt was purposeful, aimed, and radiated an indignity throughout the legendary Pokemon. They would dare strike him? Knocked off his access the pixie waiver in the air, needing a moment to regain himself in the stiffest of stances. His eyelids flickered, nearly opening as a boiling rage once again started to creep through his skin. How dare they.

Raising his tails the legendary Pokemon flared with psychic energy. 'That is enough!' He roared telepathically to all within the room. Red gems flickering, the Psychic Type let the energy consume him and made no effort to hide his temper. These Pokemon, both resident and visitor, had tried his patience and exhausted what tolerance he had for mortal beings. They were all petulant, vexating, insolent fools who saw none but the immediate space around them. Nothing but that which would effect their lives.

Uxie was beyond that scope.

Much like the sensation that dripped from the back of his head his breadth was beyond their reasoning. With only the slightest grasp on his eyelids the pixie remained closed off to the cruel world, refusing to humor its barbaric nature any longer. His pulsating energy expanded, his focus needing but a moment longer as he formed a mental lock on those under attack. Tightening both the link and focus Uxie drew in a sharp inhale, the image clear though skewed of color as the horrendous cacophony refused to stop. Then, as if a bubble had burst and the energies whisked at an impossible rapid pace, they blink away.

The Great Marsh || Noon [Storming]
Eleroo 159 || Seek 179


Seek scrabbled at the crate, her paws unable to find hold on the plastic material or the metal bars. She panted, exasperation getting to her as she floundered and watched Felix get blasted away. She was so close-- "Please." She hissed, chomping uselessly on the metal as the Radeon shied against the back of the crate. "They'll kill you, or worse!! You h-have to get out!" Eleroo begged, his protective words futile in saving his friends as Seek moved to the other side of the box. "Not without you." She was able to give the crate one good shove before East gripped her scruff with a firm paw. She yelped, her body tensing, but with the room in shambles she no longer cared about being polite. Sparks and light arched across her pelt, and with a furious roar the Aiveon let her Hidden Power race freely into his arm. The shock was enough to make him release her, and at least for a moment she could return to her task as he scolded the room who cried at the sight of an electric attack.

Despite the water Felix was quick to return to her side, and seeing her desperation tried to calm the lad as well. "Eleroo, I know your scared and its alright to be scared. I'm scared too but I'm more afraid what might happen if I didn't do what I'm doing. Sometimes the best bravery comes from when you fear something that you know might happen if you didn't do it." The older eeveelution's face shined as clear as it could through the metal grate, calming and honest, but the trembling child shook his no. "I-I'm not worth it..!" He sobbed, pushing his chin against his Toxic Orb. The smooth surface offered him little comfort, but he rubbed it nonetheless as he curled into a tighter ball.

"Seek, lets get this open, he'll hesitate if it risks harming Eleroo." The Sylveon reasoned, his gaze darting to the Floatzel and back. It didn't matter why though, as she nodded immediately and pointed to the latch of the bottom spring "Push it up, quick." She told him, knowing she would struggle with upward force. Climbing on top of the crate to keep it stable she pressed on the top spring with all her might. "Push!" She ordered the Sylveon as she felt the metal rod retreat into the housing. "Eleroo, Please." She asked once more, the strain clear in her voice as she struggled to keep it compressed. The crate shuffled, Eleroo clearly moving, contemplating, trembling as he finally balled his courage enough to charge the grate. With the locking rods compressed the heavy slam was enough to let it swing open, the force throwing the Aiveon forward as the Radeon curled into the ball.

"Eleroo!" Seek gasped, creeping forward and curling her limbs around the purple scrap of fur in a loving embrace. "I would never leave you." Eleroo panted, his body still shaking as he nestled within Seek's fur. No words would come, his jaw quivering as he sobbed like a child into her pelt. I know. The tender embrace could only last so long, the bombardment of water and noise ruining the moment as his thick fur already started to take on water. Keeping herself protectively on top of him Seek shielded Eleroo as much as she could, but the strikes found a way to reach him, and a particularly hard blast from a Bubble beam made her lose footing.

But there was no time for pain, for fighting. Rescued. That's all Seek could think about. We got him. They did it, they got him! They just had to get out--- Feeling weak within her paws the Aiveon took inventory of the room once more. The crowd was cannibalizing itself, flying attacks striking one another and starting smaller squabbles as tried to hit the intruders. Smaller members snuck past the larger ones, diving into the pools and making their way toward them. Surrounded. The others-- Shenron! Panicked gripped the youth's chest; he had been brave with the water and rain but this was too much. What were they going to do, what if they killed him?!

Try as she might she could not get herself to race to his side, to be helpful or move away from Eleroo. Another roar from the Swampert snapped her head around. Balling his fists before himself there was a tense moment as he inhaled and waited. Then, much like a broken damn or roar of thunder he threw his arms back, and another stream of water raced toward them. This time however, it soaked brown and foul, a vile, massive wave that threatened to drown them. Again, the Aiveon yelped, managing to move just enough to wrap her limbs around Eleroo who was still balled up on the floor.

It crashed over them just like a surging river, dragging both kids down the arena like a couple of wet sacks. Holding on to one another Seek refused to lose grip, her eyes only peaking open as a sound blasted through her mind, louder than any noise within the gym or the water within her ears. 'That is enough!' Blurry vision looking forward, she struggled to see but could hear the sounds of the gym suddenly change.
There was a sharp gasp and rapid, panicked chatter as her gaze landed upon her parcel that been strewn across the floor. The straw and shells had fallen from their sack and were floating away, soiled by the brown water and painfully convincing looking as the crowd believed the lie. Then, there was a moment of silence. Just a few heartbeats, but they were palpable as her crystal blue gaze drifted just beyond that. Shenron had also forgotten his cargo, and the surge had freed the severed head. It lolled on the water, the liquids sick color unclear if it was from contamination or mud, and as the surrounding Pokemon realized what they were looking at they broke into panicked screams.

Motion filled the room, a buzz of sheer terror as the water Pokemon scrambled to get out of the water and out of the room. They trampled one another, clawing and kicking to keep themselves safe from the diseased head. The noise was agony to listen to, sheer terror and pain mixed with the mortified sounds from East and the Swampert. Flicking her gaze toward them Seek had only a moment to read their expressions before both charged toward them.

Then, they were gone.

In a whisk of psychic energy the Aiveon no longer knew where she was. It was a rush, a burst, a grip of energy...! The world was gone and then, it was some place completely different. The sound, smell, touch.. everything was different as the screaming cut instantly. Still wrapped around the small Radeon Seek struggled to look around and take in the drastic change in their surroundings. "Are.. are we..?" She asked, her voice soft but tense, a rising anxiety nearly making it quiver as she realized the answer to her own question.

They were back in the Great Marsh.

Great Marsh|Morning (153)

Shenron felt his body give as the attack passed. His wings flapped shakily to get the water off but his muscles agonized to move. Even his tail flame sputtered painfully. But he couldn't rest or retreat. This was a fight. A battle..! There was strength in him somewhere. Why was he on his knees..? No no... Shenron looked up seeing the pandemonium around them and the oncoming wave of filthy water hoping his Flying typing protected him from the worst of it. Wait... Seek, Eleroo and Felix..! His eyes wide and wild he searched for his smaller companions. Or Uxie. He was certain the legend was capable but it still seized his heart to imagine they could be hurt. But the wave hit him broadside and he breathed hard roaring his fire to resist being put out at the cost of not being able to breathe. Don't de here. Don't... He felt something pulling at his body. Feeling like he was being dragged off. Where? What? Darkness... Was it... Raining? His eye flicked open for a moment registering grass and puddles. Outside..? Were they... Not now, the darkness was coming back.
He was tired.
