[ Jasper ]


Jasper pressed the button of Purrloin’s Pokéball to let it out. The purple cat stretched lazily and sat down, looking at her new trainer with scrutiny with her bright green eyes. “Purrloin,” Jasper began. “I’m your new trainer. While I’m prepared to be bros, you’re going to have to follow my orders, is that understood?” The cat kept staring at him, testing his resolve. Jasper stared back. Just when his eyes started the burn from non-blinkage the Purrloin relented and gave him a slow blink. “Good. Your name from now on will be Makin. Today will be your first test. Step one, find a wild Pokémon.”

Makin looked around, her senses sharp. This is going to be easy, Jasper thought. I’ll just make it do all the work and be back in no time.

Makin seemed to have sensed something. She flattened her body to the ground, senses sharp, tail flicking back and forth. Stalking something Jasper could not see. As she got close to a bush she went completely still, waiting for the right time. With one powerful jump she was through the bush, the last Jasper saw of her was with sharp claws extended. A cry follow and Jasper hurried to look at the other side of the bush to what was going on. There Making was rolling over the ground with a blur of blue, claws raking at anything she could get purchase of.

A Mudkip.

Jasper groaned. “I so do not liek Mudkips.”

A stream of water came from the Mudkip’s mouth and hit Makin square in the face, throwing her off. She would not be deterred however, her eyes were sharp and malicious. She took the same stalking position, her tail once again swishing back and forth. She stayed at a distance, taunting and mean. Then, as if a by the flick of a switch, she sat down. She hung her head low to the ground and meowed pathetically, ears flat on her head.

The Mudkip seemed to take pity on her. It approached her slowly, a question in its eyes. With his defenses down Makin took her chance. The dangerous look crawled back on her face and she leapt at her foe once more, this time her claws were sheathed with a dark energy. She got two slashes in before the Mudkip got over the shock and threw a ball of ice right in her face. She hissed loudly and retreated.

Making composed herself and tried the same technique, looking ever so pitiful. A deep growl came from the water Pokémon’s throat, it wasn’t going to fall for the same trick. With one move it turned around and used its hind legs to unleash a spray of mud at the Purrloin. Making jumped out of the way with another angry hiss. She was not very keen on getting dirty at all.

Meanwhile Jasper watched bemused. He was quite pleased at not having to do anything. Makin proved to be a clever battler, and this as enough against a wild Pokémon. He liked his partners clever enough to think for themselves. (And he greatly disliked battling, it was nice for him not to have butt in himself) He did make a note of the moves of both Pokémon though, as much as he could. There would be times when he would need to think for his Pokémon, it was good to know what they were capable of.

A cross expression came over Makin. She had enough of this sh*t, she was really far too good to be tossing about with a Mudkip. She pounced at the foe again, this time pinning it beneath her. Her eyes flashed purple and she bit the Mudkip in the neck, a foul purple liquid bubbling from her fangs. She jumped off of the Pokémon but the Mudkip didn’t get up. Shudders were gathering around the skin of the bite and it looked quite sick.

“That’s enough Makin,” Jasper ordered and Makin obediently stepped back and sat down, observing her handy work. Jasper threw a Pokéball at the Mudkip –it didn’t take long for it to stop rolling.

Jasper knelt before Makin and rubbed her head. “You exceeded my expectations, little bro,” he said. He summoned her back into her ball and made his way back to HQ.

Steven looked around at the group of people. He laughed, "Funny. The last person to get here will be Karma. And she wanted to ally with the 'first person back beside herself'!" He wondered what Pokemon everyone else had. He hoped nothing super effective on ice-dark or fighting-steel. That was once he got his Lucario. He mused, which of these people had done it? He didn't suspect Jenna Williams, she probably found out, and "went missing". He didn't suspect Ernest, he could never pull anything like that off. Karma, she was insane, and she was smart. She could probably do it. Then what about Jasper? Well, he would find out soon enough. Then there was Parvati, the girl was the Roserade. He hated her, and liked her. So cold, although everyone really was here, but she took the definition of cold to a new level, he liked that. But how could someone so cold hav a grass Pokemon? It didn't make sense. He didn't know if she could do something like that though. Sckye worried him. He was young, easy enough to get into that position, but smart. Steven was young also, and smart. His biggest competition. Not like he was trying to make it to the top though. He was trying to destroy the top, and all of Team Rocket.

K A R M A... Soon capturing pokémon in Goldenrod xD


Karma couldn't know if her plan had worked or if the others were just impatient or hasty by their own accord, but all of the other E8 did run off to find a pokémon relatively quickly, letting her watch their initial moves before making her own.

She had spotted some of them from the rooftop, such as Steven who let out his own pokémon with every lack of subtlety as soon as he could and let her run off to find something for him. Not a great leader there, was her opinion. Parvati, the cold cutie, had moved briskly through the crowds of Goldenrod in the morning, causing not a few angry glances as she pushed her way forward. She seemed smart, but maybe she was too focused on goals and could forget to think of the small things? Everything was important, after all!

Ernest had made her raise an interested eyebrow and smile a little. It seemed like he just moved carelessly through the city, greeting people to the right and left. He was clumsy and dumb in Karma's eyes, but maybe there was some brilliance underneath that? Some sort of everyday intelligence that the more cunning members of the E8 clearly lacked.

She had not spotted Scyke, the young battler. He seemed to have left the Goldenrod base with silent determination. A decent boy, that, perhaps! She also didn't see much of Jasper. Perhaps he had not left the base until after Karma went away from her rooftop lookout. Pity, she would have loved to sabotage for him a bit, in retort to his pathetic pun earlier. Even though it was rather funny.

((I'll expand this post later with a capture, or make another post if someone in the cafeteria posts before that. Sorry, but it's tedious to make long posts during this week))

Scyke arrived back into Team Rocket HQ and made his way to the cafeteria. As soon as he walked in, he realised that he was the first one to arrive back. Huh. Had he been too hasty? After all, the task took him only around twenty minutes. He wondered about what Pokemon the other members could have caught. Whatever they had caught however couldn't had been as rare as his "Wanut". It annoyed Scyke that he still didn't know the Pokemon's proper name, then he realised something. "Maybe... maybe I should give you a nickname. That way that problem won't be persistant when I call you out, and I can just call you by your nickname when I talk with other people." Scyke thought hard about a proper nickname for the Wynaut. He probably did want to evolve it to Wobuffett as soon as possible, and so he tried to twist what he knew of the Pokemon's name with its evolution's name. "How about... Wafett?" He called the Wynaut out so that he could tell the baby Pokemon what it would be called from now on.

"Your name, from here and on, will be Wafett. How does that sound?" The Wynaut stared blankly at it's trained with its fixed face, but it's tail seem to be calm and relaxed. Wynaut gave a little cry and that seemed enough for Scyke. "Ok Wafett, welcome to the team! Me, you and Murkrow will be great partners." Before he could say anything else however, he heard footsteps creeping closer towards the cafeteria. Someone else must have been returning from finishing the task themselves. Scyke quickly called back Wafett to it's Pokeball and sat down in the nearby bench. It was Steven who had finished second. He didn't seem to want to talk to Scyke. Fair enough; Scyke wasn't looking for conversation anyway. He wanted some alone time to train up Wafett as it seemed that it wasn't at a good level, at least not as good as Murkrow's.

As Scyke drifted off into some kind of day dream, a feminine voice filled the room. The sudden noise and the cold nature of the speech startled Scyke and he almost jumped. He looked down from where he was staring; it was Parvati, the strangest member of the E8 as far as Scyke was concerned. He had heard something about her having some kind of abusive past, but he couldn't confirm if that was true or not. One thing that Scyke disliked about her was her expressionless face; ever since his been in the E8 and the other members Parvati had been the one who always seem to have some kind of... of a 'mask' on. Like as if she felt no happiness or sadness at all. Scyke waved away the thought. He was thinking too hard. He didn't properly hear what Parvati had said but ignored her anyway and went back to his day dreaming. Silence is golden, after all. He noticed that Steven spoke a few words back and had gone to some other room. The atmosphere between the six remaining members seemed a little icy at the moment; or was it just harmless banter between all of them? Scyke hadn't been in enough social conversations to work that out. He just wanted to be alone with his Pokemon.

More minutes had passed and more people had finished the task and returned to HQ. Only one person remained, and that was Karma, the one who had proposed a 'race' in the first place. Scyke wondered where the heck she was. James Tan was still nowhere to be found.

K A R M A... capturing pokémon in Goldenrod


Finally, Karma was down on the streets looking for pokémon. She had her golett still in his pokéball to not attract unnecessary attention. Turning into a narrow alley, she saw a meowth run past her. Hm. That was a common enough TR pokémon. But it just sat on the ground looking at her before yawning and then walking away. Somehow, Karma didn't find that interesting enough.

Walking through a park on the outskirts of the city, she saw two rattata playing on the grass. Rattata would make an excellent pokémon to capture and foster into a killing machine. Since just about every grunt had one but they never evolved because they were so poorly raised. Used as tools. Silly grunts... pokémon were not tools. They were... tools to be taken good care off. Karma's distant smile grew wider at the thought.

But these rattata looked so innocent. So young. Just... ugh. She felt nauseous looking at them and moved on. They were not right either. She could not just capture any common pokémon. It had to give her the right feeling. The right atmosphere. Soon after leaving the rattata, she entered a factory backyard, thinking that she'd find some ugly pokémon there. She did find something. It was a stantler that had gotten lost and couldn't find its way out from inside the fences surrounding the site. A stantler... uncommon and mysterious enough. But still. It looked so darn pathetic, being afraid and lost like that. Karma just walked on and left it there in a corner of the fence. Helping it out would serve no purpose of hers.

In the end, it turned out that she became the E8 to spend too much thinking about what pokémon to capture. Looking at the time and realizing this, Karma's smile for once disappeared from her face, getting replaced by a very irritated grin that showed her teeth.


((I wrote more but then accidentally erased it and ugh........ I'll finish tomorrow.))

Bored... no one seemed to be talking, and the crazy lady was taking forever. She must have gotten in trouble with the police for carving her name in someone's back. What else could she be doing? Usually murderers like her enjoyed doing something like that in her free time.

Ernest quietly slipped out of the room, hoping to not even be noticed. When the door slammed behind him, he was sure that everyone did though. Whatever. It's not as if they were going to follow him or anything. That would be paranoid to even consider, what with the murder happening and everyone already being suspicious of each other.

The not-so-stealthy mass of weight lumbered over to the dormitories where he was sure to get some clues. If the Warden was right (which he had doubts of), then one of the E8 had to be the murderer... but which one?

Ernest had decided to check out Karma's room first. Since she's been gone for so long, the chances of her returning decrease as time passes. That's gambler's logic, right there. He wasn't going to thoroughly examine the dorm or anything, just kind of rummage around a bit and see if he can find some obvious clues, like a diary entry describing the murder. Crazy people always have diaries describing their murders- mystery novels would suck without this being true.

Even if there wasn't anything like that, he could always just make a fake diary to incriminate someone. There were no rules against that, were there? Besides, he had an eighth of a chance of getting the right person. No... wait... one in seven... uh... a good chance.

Oh, maybe he might find some hidden stashes of food. That would be a pleasant surprise. Crazy people eat the same things that normal people do, plus more. Maybe eating crayons is an acquired taste, and he just needed to give it a chance.

He stopped in front of the room, hesitantly. He had second thoughts. Was it a good idea to take a chance with this murderer? She could return any moment and deliver her unholy judgment upon this poor mortal, and the inferno's molten gates would be opened.

That's when Ernest came up with his brilliant idea. He grabbed Litwick's Pokéball. Then he took it... and threw it on the ground.

A red light appeared, quickly forming into the discernible candle shape. She looked at Ernest with watchful eyes... uh... eye. The large man stooped down and whispered in her ear.

“I need you to go find evidence that Karma's the murderer. Go in there and find her diary or something. You find something solid, and I'll give you a cookie.”

He opened Karma's door and gestured her in.

“Oh, and don't set anything on fire, please. Just get the diary and put it under my bed, then wait for me there.”

She moved in reluctantly, rolling her eyes- eye- with what appeared to be a sigh. As soon as the last trail of wax disappeared from sight, Ernest quickly closed the door. He quietly laughed at his astounding intelligence and turned around to go back into the meeting room.

Charles was getting impatient. He needed to do something about Kimbou's evolving so why not, he felt into his backpocket. The photo was still there. Or all of them where. He had gotten rid of Xaiver's, and Ernest's had a big X on it. He sent out Kimbou and stared down at her. She met his gaze. He attempted a smile, but ended up with a smirk. She cocked her head and ask, "Ri?" A couple of the other E8s, E7s? looked over at him. He looked back and they looked away. He picked up Kimbou, and walked out of the room. Kimbou had her eyes closed, and her palms were staring to glow. So he did the logical thing. He put her down. She exhaled a sigh of relief, and stared up at him. He reached into his back pocket and pulled out a picture of Karma.

Kimbou stared at it. Charles quietly said, "This is Karma. I think she may have done something good." He gritted his teeth and stared up at the camera where the Warden was watching from. He made a cut-throat sign, disguised as a cough, to show him he didn't mean it. However the Warden interpreted it, he didn't care. Looking down at Kimbou again he said, "Can you go into her room," he wrote down the room number on the back of the paper, "and see if there is like," He racked his brains. Anything that would secure it, "A diary or something."

Kimbou nodded and smiled. Obviously she felt like Charles trusted her to do something this "important", so she would like him for trusting her. Charles could use a diary, but it was not necessary. He would have to send Kimbou off on a lot of missions to get her to evolve. Since Pokemon can't "de-evolve" he could stop then. Kimbou rushed off down the hallway. Charles sighed and walked back into the cafeteria, and sat down, staring at Ernest, noticing that one of his Pokeballs was empty. He thought nothing of it though.

[ Jasper ]


Before going back to the canteen Jasper decided to stop by his room. There he could let out the Mudkip in private, get to terms with the creature. He didn't know what the Warden wanted from them next, but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared. He passed a dashing Riolu on the way, but besides raising an eyebrow he didn't react. Its trainer must be up to something, but any spying would ave to wait for the future. He quickly slipped into his room, closing the door behind him.

On the back of it was a note.

Jasper snatched it from the door, a piece of folded paper hastily taped, with equally hasty handwriting.

Got approached by the Giovanni-kid, Steven. He was a bit too curious. Watch your back.

It wasn't signed but it didn't need to be. Jasper knew Johannes' handwriting, ever horrible to read for anyone not accustomed to them. Doctors and scientists alike always had the worst writing, and Johannes was no exception. For once this was a good thing. Still, it seemed no one had snooped in his room yet -no doubt they would, in time, but not yet. He was a bit troubled by the intel, Johannes hadn't thought thee boy was much to worry about, which had been a relief as Jasper had enough people to worry about. Now it seemed that opinion had been revoked. He'd had to have a chat with him later.

Jasper stuffed the note into his pocket (best to keep such things on one's person) and sat down onto his bed. He got the Mudkip's Pokéball and released it. The Pokémon looked confused, hadn't it just been in a park? In a fight with a particularly nasty Purrloin? It looked at Jasper, recognizing him.

"Hey there, bro," Jasper did an awkward sort of wave. "Sorry to snatch you like that, but I'm afriad neither of us had much choice in the matter. I'm also afraid that you're not in the most savory of companies. I'm in some deep ****, and by proxy so are you now." The Mudkip cocked his head, Jasper wasn't sure if it understood anything he said, it didn't look very intelligent. 'You're a bro aren't you?" Not that Jasper didn't call girls bros too. Mudkip's head cocked to the other side. "I'm just going to assume you're a bro. Well, bro, I've done some bad things, very bad things, and I guess they're catching up with me. Sorry to drag you into the stinking pile of exrement with me. On the positive side- no way this is going to end up being a dull ride. If I'm going, I'm going with a bang If I'm not going, hell, let's create a bang anyway, just for fun." Jasper rubbed the head of the Mudkip, he seemed to enjoy it. "You're not too bad, and you seem decently strong. I shall call you Jorg. Now that this is out of the way, let's get you back in your ball, I might need you soon," he called the Pokémon back and stuffed the ball in his pocket. Time to get back too the others.

He looked around once he got to the canteen. No Karma yet, thank god. He could live with not seeing her face for a while yet. He looked specifically for the kid who had approached Johannes and found his target. The kid was sitting down, not engaged with anyway. Time to change that. Jasper grabbed a chair and sat on it backwards, facing the kid. "Steven, right? A little bird told me you had a chat with Johannes earlier. Mind telling me what that was all about?"

"Steven, right? A little bird told me you had a chat with Johannes earlier. Mind telling me what that was all about?"

Steven smirked. Jasper had heard. He looked at Jasper and said, "Would you mind coming outside?" He waited for Jasper's reply, racking his brain. He hadn't thought this through very well had he? Kimbou was running down the hallway, probably in Karma's room by now, looking for a diary. If this escalated, he would be down one Pokemon. He walked out of the room mentally preparing himself. Would he get right to it and accuse him, see his reaction, or would be edge in, opening a weakness. He was thinking of Jasper's record.

His parent's died, making him an orphan, he could relate with that. Sort of. If only he had a fire type. That must be some kind of weakness of his. He had ice though, maybe that would "chill" him? He chuckled at the joke in his head. He had bad experiences with foster homes, nothing in that. He stole some money and left at 16. If he had a conscience must feel sightly bad about that. Steven had nothing to feel bad about. This was for revenge, a much more worthy cause. Johannes. That was his weakness. If he could get to Johannes, he could get to Jasper. But Sonara couldn't find him in time. He would have to be direct, and concise.

He waited for Jasper, and put Sonara's Pokeball into his back pocket, leaving an empty Pokeball in the front, an interesting way of confusing him.

Jasper looked the kid in the eye a moment, wondering what he was getting at, separating the from the rest. He shrugged and smirked. "Not at all, lead the way kiddo." It should be fine, Jasper was confident he could take the boy if it came to that, at least brawn-wise.

A voice in the back of his head did tell him hat this was not wht Johannes had had in mind when he wrote the note. He was aware that Johannes was a lot smarter than him, and he should have probably done what Johannes had had in mind: lay low and keep an eye out for things. But that was not how Jasper worked. If there was a problem, he faced it.

And so Jasper stood up from the chair and waite for Steven to lead them wherever he had in mind.

Steven calm himself and leaned over whispering into Jasper's ear, "I have good evidence that you killed Xaiver. Give me one reason I shouldn't bring your diary," he paused showing the forged diary he made from some samples of Jasper's handwriting, "To The Warden." If Jasper actually kept a diary, this was a hit. Although he doubted it. He had a forged Diary of everyone. Funny thing is, he actually kept one. He was hoping someone found it. It had no evidence against him, just evidence against everyone else. Heavily Karma. Where was Kimbou? Kimbou would be nice to have right now, he could send her off to get Johannes.

What was he doing? He should have gone in slowly, this was too blunt. And if The Warden figured out his plan... Well, if he could get his parents on his side, that would be good. He would get them after this "talk" with Jasper. Then he heard a huffing as Kimbou ran down the hallway. He sighed, his ear was singed and he was carrying a charred piece of paper. It would be unusable. He would have to deal with Kimbou later. He sighed, and returned Kimbou before Jasper could see him.

Parvati Patil

As Steven looked at her with a steely look saying "Does it matter?" Parvati smirked on the inside of her expressionless mask. Though he left the room before she could say anything back. Not that she was going to in the first place. Scyke on the other hand never responded. Though that didn't bother her. Sitting down in a chair Parvati let Kiri and Ajay out of their Pokeballs and healed Ajay with a potion she had 'borrowed' from a boy in town. She wasn't really paying attention to the others in the room as she looked at her two Pokemon. A Roselia and an Elecktrike. Not the most common combination. Actually not one she would normally use but she would adapt to it. After several minutes she gradually grew bored and crossed her arms glancing around the room again before her gaze settled on Scyke.

Returning her two Pokemon she stood and moved to the seat right next to him looking at him out of the corner of her eyes as she spoke. "what did you catch? I caught an Elecktrike" she said disinterestedly. Dennis had said to watch her back, and as much as she didn't want to. It would be helpful to have an ally in here.

Jasper snorted. "Oh come on, bro, you can do better than that. Seriously man, do I look like the kind of guy that keeps a diary filled with my deepest, darkest secrets?" Truth is he did keep one like it, though Jasper preferred referring to it as a business notebook. It mostly recorded date collecter during missions, things he couldn't afford to forget. In fact, it might do well to record dirt on the others in it. However, he would never be daft enough -or possess enough hubris- to write anything incriminating on himself in it. He'd swiped enough intel on others in the past that way to make the same mistakes.

Jasper grinned and slapped Steven on the shoulder in a not-so-friendly manner. "Really, little dude, you're going to have to be a little more creative than that. In fact, I look forward to it. You, however, you look just the sort to pour your heart into little book. I wonder what juicy secrets are in yours, hm?" Dude wanted to play the baiting game? Then let them play.

Steven smiled. He was kind of expecting that. Although, he knew that Jasper was being WAY too excited. He thought he was hiding something. But Steven said, "As a matter of fact, I do keep a diary. Why don't you try and steal it, hm?" If Jasper did, and he revealed it to the Warden, he and everyone else on the E6, he didn't consider himself a real member, would be screwed. He chuckled inside of his head, and smiled apologetically. He hoped this took him off of Jasper's radar, or if it added him more, it would be fine. As for the Warden, the "sloppy" work would help to be cleared as the murder was very precise.

Suddenly a thought popped into his head. Where was James Tan? He wasn't there... That could mean two things. He was the murderer, and had hid, or had tried to and been caught, or that he himself was murdered. That would be an interesting twist. Steven walked away. He sent out Kimbou and stared down at it. There was the charred spot on her ear. He returned her and sat down.

Scyke twisted his head towards his left, unsure about why Parvati had wanted to talk to him. Was she suspicious? Was she looking at him for clues on if he did it? Scyke tried to clear away those thoughts as soon as possible; he was being way too cautious. All she had done was ask him what Pokemon he had caught. Just friendly chatter. No big deal.

Scyke stared at Parvati for a second. She was pretty, but something about her eyes made him feel a little unsure; there was just coldness lingering in there. Still, he managed to not stall too much time to make the approach from her awkward and replied, "I err, caught a Wanut, or something. I actually don't know it's real name, so I nicknamed it Wafett. Do you know it's err, real name?" Scyke finished with opening Wafett's Pokeball, letting the cyan-coloured Pokemon out in-front of Parvati. He hoped that his reply wasn't too... unsocial like. He hadn't had much conversations in the past, at least with people slightly around his age.

“Oh look!” Ernest cried with delight. “It's a Pumbloom!”

He jumped out of his seat and interrupted the other conversation like a boss. Ernest pointed to the Wynaut with a jittery finger, laughing like a cat drowning in maple syrup. His belly shook like Santa after fifty caffeinated cups of coffee, and trembled like a happy child in a candy store. The look on his face was the same one that people have after using too many similes- an insane smile, but without the twisted malice commonly found on Karma. His breathing started to become erratic.

Ernest started chewing on his fingers, making loud slobber noises as he did so. Scyke might have been sprayed with a couple droplets of spittle, but he wasn't really paying attention. Who cares about him anyway? He moved himself closer to the two of them, getting eerily close.

“Did I ever tell you guys how I think the Pokemon looks like a potato...?”

Steven stared over towards Sckye, Parvati, and Ernest. Steven felt bad for Sckye. One should not go making friends with Parvati. Ernest leapt, made himself look like an idiot, and called a Wynaut, an, um Pumbloon? That isn't even a Pokemon. Steven was extremely confident in his choice of discarding his picture of Ernest. He was stupid. Although, Steven had seen more intricate acts in the movies he had watched. He observed Ernest's babyish movements before butting in, "That's a Wynaut, not a Pumblum or something." Ernest had said it looked like a potato.

How? How did it look like a potato? And how did Ernest get into the E, um his wan't sure what to call it anymore. E8? E7? Well, for him it was the E7? E6? He didn't consider himself part of it. He would do some digging to find out how Ernest got in later. He needed an ally. Namely the person who did it. He was starting to suspect James Tan, but he needed to find him first...

Phase One - Pokemon Bonds


Phase Two - TR Capabilities
Phase Three - ? ? ?
Phase Four - ? ? ?





Target - Get back to the room and listen to the Warden. After that, find your assigned opponent and fight. Once you are done, get back to the cafeteria for briefing. That will be the end of Phase One, and the fun begins. Time to get back on track guys! I'm determined to get this finished, so bear with me!

"Get back to the waiting area in the cafeteria. Now."

The Warden's voice boomed across every corridor in the sector, catching all the E8 members by surprise. He had grown tired waiting for them to get ready, and he wanted to continue as soon as possible.

Before all hell could break loose, the man stormed into the cafeteria, clutching his signature clipboard in his hands. He glared at the E8 and sat down on his chair, flipping through the pages of reports that he had written during the observation phase. In the sea of lousy handwriting, the words somehow managed to appear just fine in the Warden's eyes...

Jasper - Fairly normal during Pokemon battle. Observes the opponent before making moves. Had been holding back/saving his full potential until his Pokemon had enough. Captured the Mudkip. No specific suspicions, but I spot Steven talking to him earlier on through cameras. Note to self - install mic as well to hear sound. Next time they won't be hiding any secrets.

Steven - Interesting find - a Magnet Rise Riolu. Relies on Pokemon to find enemies at first. Uses tactics to stall and lower opponent's stats before striking; isn't stupid. Too nosy - I might have to keep an eye on this one as I'M the one that's going to do research, not this wannabe detective...

Parvati - Some small problems communicating with Pokemon, but it's all good later on. Rather cold when it comes to talking to companion. Seems rather secretive at times, as if she's always on guard. Hm. Noteworthy.

Ernest - Interesting fellow, poor Daycare Lady. Rather funny to watch. A little bit...strange? Was afraid of the Litwick at first. Seems too clumsy to be murderer, but I can't really jump into conclusions right now. Anyone of you guys can be 'it'...

Scyke - Cares his Pokemon, and is a rather obedient person. Organized, determined. Not much to say about him at the moment - he seems rather...normal, as in there are no extremes.



After everyone had sat down (finally)(OOC: If you aren't there, post about sitting down and listening to him in your next post), the Warden cleared his throat and stared into their eyes, one by one. "Reports are done, but I'm not going to let you read it just yet. Karma has somehow vanished as well, and I'd like to know where she is. Anyway, you have one more task before the end of Phase One, and it's fairly straightforward. After all, you need training before Phase Two, which would be more interesting for all of you. The task you are given now is to have a battle with your two new Pokemon against another E8 member. Winning or not doesn't matter. I need to see you in action for...confirmation."

The Warden then looked at his notes and read out the rest. "Steven, you are against Ernest. Parvati, you are against Scyke. Jasper...since you're alone, you can battle one of my weaker Pokemon instead. Come meet me in Arena 3 in ten minutes as I'll have to fetch that thing from my cabinet. For the other two teams, there are two empty rooms neighboring this one that would act as a good arena. There are walls and pillars in the middle for some tactical moves. When you are finished, come back to the cafeteria. I will give you a short briefing before letting you rest for the day. Dismissed."

Scyke looked up at Ernest, not surprised by his comment; he had always looked like the clumsy, stupid one of the E8. A Pumbloom? That was no where near Wafett's real name! And the mock laughing? Scyke just smirked at it. He was used to little gags that was directed at him or at his Pokemon. He grew up through hate in the orphanage; not many remarks affected him anymore. The intervention from Steven however was surprising; Scyke didn't know much him, but definitely appreciated the support. More allies the better.

Before Scyke could say anything however, a sudden, impatient voice filled the cafeteria, followed by footsteps. It was the Warden, obviously. The middle-age looking man found a sit and sat down on it; Scyke followed and did the same. After a minute or two in which the Warden had read through which looked like some kind of a report, he closed the book and started speaking to the whole of the E8.

"Reports are done, but I'm not going to let you read it just yet. Karma has somehow vanished as well, and I'd like to know where she is. Anyway, you have one more task before the end of Phase One, and it's fairly straightforward. After all, you need training before Phase Two, which would be more interesting for all of you. The task you are given now is to have a battle with your two new Pokemon against another E8 member. Winning or not doesn't matter. I need to see you in action for...confirmation."

Karma vanished, huh? Escaping Team Rocket wasn't going to do her too much good; once a student had tried to run away from TR - next day one of the teachers came back, holding his electrocuted numb body and dropping it to the floor. Scyke knew Karma was smart, and that the student from back then was dumb as a Magikarp, so he guessed that Karma's escape would be better, whatever reason she was escaping for. Was she the murderer? Scyke wasn't sure. Sure, she seemed... interesting and kind of crazy but not really seemed like a "murderer" type. So, who else would it be? At least, who seemed like the worst suspect right now? While the Warden babbled on about something, Scyke looked to see the remaining members and do some mini-analyzing.

Ernest looked too dumb and carefree to do any kind of damage. Then again, Ernest could be some kind of psycho who wanted power over everyone in the E8 due to his stupid brain, and so killed that guy. Urgh. Scyke disliked Ernest, but tried to remove his feelings on his thoughts. Steven seemed smart but harmless; Scyke couldn't imagine him killing anyone anytime soon. Jasper was interesting though. Scyke and really everyone else knew that he hated Xarius in the first place, so maybe because of that he killed him? No, that was waay too basic of a motive; Jasper was too smart for that. Scyke continued his little judgement into Parvati, who hadn't even bothered to respond to Scyke when she had approached him for some reason. Her cold eyes gave Scyke a bit of a chill; something about her didn't seem right. She also didn't seem to care about anyone else much, which could be a motive, but then again if she didn't care about anyone else why would she go around killing someone?

In the end, Scyke put it down as Ernest as the killer. It was a bit early to pull a guessing game like that when it was still Phase One, and God knows how many Phases the Warden had planned for all of them, and so Scyke tried to keep his suspects open. He still didn't like Ernest though.

Steven looked at Ernest and sighed. He got the Pumblum buffun of them all. Thank god. He stared at the Warden. He did not appear to show any signs of singling Steven out. Steven sighed, and took on a calm persona. It was time to find out what had happened to Kimbou. Steve walked out of the room and sent a fleeting glance after Ernest. Nah. He wasn't much of a threat. Steven just wished he knew what Pokemon he had. The only other thing Steven remembered from the announcement, was Karma was gone. Gone. That just put her higher on his list of the person who did it. But he couldn't worry about her now.

Steven walked down the hallway, headed for Karma's room. Chances were, he would find what burnt and scared Kimbou there. He sent out Kimbou and stared at her. Kimbou stared back and uttered, "Ri?" "Can you take me to Karma's room please?" Kimbou stopped in her tracks and shivered. Steven stared down at her and said, "Here, come onto my shoulder, you'll be safe." Kimbou Magnet Rose up, and "flu" onto Steven's shoulder. He patted her head, and she rubbed against his hand. She crouched ready to attack as they entered Karma's room.

Steven thought he saw a candle light, but it disappeared. He shrugged it off, as it was probably a trick of the light. Karma's room was dark compared to the halls. Kimbou jumped off of Steven's shoulder, and hit the spot where the light was with a Quick Attack. The light grew into a Litwick, and Steven stepped back. The Litwick used Ember, and Kimbou used Counter. It passed right through the Litwick, as it was a ghost type. Steven stepped forward and yelled, "Stop it!" Litwick set its gaze on Steven and used Ember...

When Sckye asked what Pokemon he had caught Parvati shook her head and looked away. Let someone else answer him. After all who didn't know what a Wynaut was. Before she knew it though the warden was back in the room and one by one looked them in the eyes. "Reports are done, but I'm not going to let you read it just yet. Karma has somehow vanished as well, and I'd like to know where she is. Anyway, you have one more task before the end of Phase One, and it's fairly straightforward. After all, you need training before Phase Two, which would be more interesting for all of you. The task you are given now is to have a battle with your two new Pokemon against another E8 member. Winning or not doesn't matter. I need to see you in action for...confirmation."

Parvati nodded looking around at the others noting Karma wasn't there. But she was wondering who she was going to face. "Steven, you are against Ernest. Parvati, you are against Scyke. Jasper...since you're alone, you can battle one of my weaker Pokemon instead. Come meet me in Arena 3 in ten minutes as I'll have to fetch that thing from my cabinet. For the other two teams, there are two empty rooms neighboring this one that would act as a good arena. There are walls and pillars in the middle for some tactical moves. When you are finished, come back to the cafeteria. I will give you a short briefing before letting you rest for the day. Dismissed."

Glancing at Scyke, Parvati laughed in her head. This could be easy, but...I'm not going to underestimate him. "I'll be in the next room" she said coldly standing and walking out without a glance.

Mr. Trench Coat had finished talking to himself and addressed the dwindling number of E8 members. Something about battling for the gladiatorial tournament or something. Whatever they were doing, Ernest was sure he was paired with Steven, and had to fight him with both of his Pokémon. An easy task, since he didn't have to win or anything. Heck, maybe losing would be better, since it would make him appear as less of a threat. If Steven looked like a brutal fighter, he would look like the murderer.

And if the Warden thinks Steven's the murderer... the case is over. No one is safer, but at least Ernest won't have to feel like a bug under a microscope. There's a reason Ernest calls him Prison Warden- because the guy was creepy, no two ways about it.

Ernest noticed Steven slipping out of the room as soon as the announcement was made. The sneaky little man was doing sneaky little things- sticking his sneaky nose in everyone's privacy.

Speaking of which, Litwick was probably done with her dubious deeds. If he left her alone for too long, she might accidentally set fire to his room or burn his cookie stash. The latter situation would obviously be the least desirable; you can always get another room, but you can't always get another cookie. Years of kitchen duty has taught him that important lesson the hard way.

Grumpy Chick announced simply that she'd “be in the next room” and walked out like she was the coolest thing on two legs. She wasn't because Lickilicky had already taken that esteemed position. Who did she think she was? Some sort of bloodthirsty demon goddess? The nerve of some people.

Ernest, not one to resist a challenge decided to top her meager performance by announcing his exit in an even louder and more confident voice.

“I'm going to go find Steven before he Blue Skidoos into a postcard. I'll see you guys after the battles, okay? I want to meet right here and try and figure out the murderer's identity. I might even have information, so make sure to come to the meeting.”

Ernest opened the door, staring into their unimpressed eyes. He slipped out without another word, except “ouch” when the door hit his face as he closed it dramatically.

The jolly good-for-nothing began skipping down the hallway, humming a famous tune related to roads made of bricks that boasted a color that happened to be a primary color related to sunshine. His flab was absolutely fab when it bounced, so he made sure let his little chub jiggle at every opportunity. Parvati had to have noticed the barrel of lard pass by, because he took up half the hallway with his shenanigans.

When he passed by Karma's room to get to his own, he stopped. There was a smell coming from it. It kind of smelled like smoke, but his nose was too stuffed to tell.

Ernest pulled out a small pepper pack from his pocket, ripped it open and threw it into his nose. He held out his hands in a cup to prepare for what was next.

Only a few seconds later, he sneezed out a huge chunk of green mucus into his waiting hands. He hit the jackpot- a wad of snot almost as big as a golf ball. Since the mucus was still dripping and moist, he ran to the wall and began smearing it there, giggling at the funny noises it was making.

Then he wiped his hands on his pants and smelled the air again.

Yup, it smelled like smoke. And where there's smoke... there's usually a smoker. Since Karma usually bites, she was probably inclined to chew rather than smoke. So that meant there was someone else in her room, causing trouble. It was probably Steven the Vegan trying to set fire to the headquarters, y'know, to get rid of the evidence of his crimes... 'cuz he's obviously the criminal responsible for not only the death of Mr. Body, but also whoever was killed rather recently that Ernest was supposed to remember.

Ernest whipped open the door and shouted, “I knew it! You're the murderer!”

Steven fell backwards into Ernest, his face searing hot. "Water!" He cried. This was a terrible burn, and it needed to be seen immediately. Damnit! Why did potions only work for Pokemon? Kimbou was still sending random Counters into Litwick. "Or an Rawst Berry! Fast! Curse the stupid Litwick!" His face felt like it was on fire, and Ernest was doing nothing. He got an idea and sent out Sonara. "Sonara, use Icy Wind on my face!" Sonara jumped back, and then saw the red burn, and used Icy Wind. It made Steven's face feel so good. "More..." He said. It was the equivalent of an ice pack. He noticed Sonara shivering, and she stopped.

He face felt good, but then felt bad again. If he didn't get a Rawst Berry or cold water, he was going to blister. And that would not feel good.

[ Jasper ]


Jasper returned to the cafetaria just as the Warden came in, he quickly grabbed a chair, turned it backwards, and sat down on it. He listened at what the Warden had to say. So Karma disappeared. She should know that there’s no running from Team Rocket, not in this region or its neighbour, anyway. And similar teams in other regions had ties with the Rockets. If they wanted her back badly enough, they would. Still, it’d be interesting to see what came out of it. Or it was a trick of the Wardens? But that seemed a little far-fetched, he’d have to bring it up to Johannes next time they spoke.

Still. Battles. Blegh. And he had the toughest opponent too, the Warden himself. He was known to be a ruthless battler. Jasper might have been able to take one of the other E8 (or whatever it was nowadays), or at least he wouldn’t’ve cared about the outcome. In fact, losing might have been the best way to go in that case. But the situation he was in, well, it wouldn’t hurt to impress the big guy. Especially if it was as Johannes had said, that the murdered might very well await a nifty promotion.

Arena 3, though. That was quite a big-shot place to have a battle.

Jasper got up from his chair and made for the Arena. It was a bit of a walk, being separate from the make-shift holding area they were in. It was nice not to have to watch his back though. He could relax, if only a little. The E8 were far behind.

Something was wrong. Something felt off.

Jasper could feel it, call it intuition. He was being followed. He’d let his guard down. Just as he looked around he received a sucker punch to the jaw. The force knocked him off-balance and off his feet. He managed to catch most of the impact of his fall with his hands. Bent over on the floor he spat out blood where his teeth had bitten into his cheek.

The assailant came from behind him and twisted one of Jasper’s arms behind him painfully. Jasper tried kicking backwards, trying to catch his assailant in the leg but they only twisted his arm more. A handkerchief with the distinct smell of chloroform as pressed tightly against his mouth and nose. There was nothing he could do, thrash and his arm was twisted even more painfully. In six breaths Jasper’s vision went tunnel. His lungs were screaming for oxygen and black took over his eyes until he could see no more…

Ernest put his hand on his forehead, apparently in great pain. It was as if a single voice cried out and was suddenly silenced. What was all that about?

Oh, yes. The guy giving himself face-blisters was screaming. People tend to get louder when they're pain, don't they? So annoying...

Apparently Litwick didn't find anything, or she would have returned to the room. There she was though, standing in the middle of the floor, quietly gazing at the two humans with cold fascination. If Karma had a diary, it certainly wasn't going to be found looking like a fool dripping wax on the ground.

“Litwick, ain't nobody got time to stand around. You nearly gave Steven bronchitis, now apologize.”

The candle didn't move. She wasn't too keen on expressing any emotion beyond simple amusement, and Ernest was starting to sound like an annoying buzz; there's only one way to stop an annoying buzz- kill the fly.

A smile flickered across her face, briefly revealing a soul festering with darkness. It was quickly disguised with her waxen mask, the frozen face of uncaring. Ernest never even saw the danger in her expression, nor the mortal danger he was in. Maybe if he were better at reading fire Pokémon emotions, he might have noticed the flame atop her head quivering violently- the most obvious sign of contained fury.

Ernest grabbed his Poké Ball and held it out like a police badge. “Return, Litwick!”

A beam of light absorbed her, sending the candle back into her capsule. Then he turned his attention to Steven, who had his face burnt and immediately frozen afterward. Rather than assisting him or anything humane like that, he just walked away.

“Meet in Arena One after you're done being a baby.”

Not even bothering to see his reaction Ernest turned around and began walking to the correct room, giggling to himself imagining what Steven might look like when his face is all ugly.
