Spoiler:

Mechanical Left Arm
Upgrades:
-Retractable Double Edged Blade

Sunglasses with Integrated HUD - Linked with his Pokedex, functional now
Tool Kit

Various parts and projects in beginning stages of creation

Hark yawned a little as he had only gotten two hours of sleep that night since he had spent almost all the night working on the sunglasses and integrating the HUD system with the Pokedex. He would be fine, he was like a machine and could operate for around 72 hours without much rest . He thought he was that way at least. Just as he took a step forward an unfamiliar voice behind him said, “You really shouldn't ignore her like that.”

Spinning around Hark saw a man who was standing about 20 feet away from him. This man’s body was cloaked in a black robe with a hood that hid much of the man’s face. However the hood did not hide the man’s mouth that, which was twisted up in a fake smile that combined with his clothing made him rather creepy. Hark closed his eyes for a second wondering if his lack of sleep was getting to his head, but when he reopened them the man was still there… and still smiling. “Ignore who?” asked Hark with a slightly hostile voice.

Suddenly Lannia’s Pokeball opened and released the Pokemon without Hark’s permission. “Her,” replied the man taking a step forward. “She was opening up her heart to you and you just locked her away. That was rather cruel of you,” continued the man as he walked up to Hark.

“She was crying and I didn’t have time to deal with it. Anyway none of this is your business,” replied Hark in a cold voice as he stared at the man wondering how the heck Lannia had been released.
“Do you even have a heart?” replied the man who was now five feet from Hark. Lannia was making noise like she was trying to talk, but Hark kept his focus on the man in front of him.

“Emotion is pushed aside if it interferes with my goals, now leave me alone. I’m not interested in the whole “Take care of your pokemon and they will be your friend forever bull****.” I don’t want a Pokemon, but I need one for now” replied Hark with a hostile voice.

“I don’t plan to leave you alone… I have other plans for you,” replied the grinning man with a sinister tone in his voice as he walked up to Hark. A strange energy seemed to form around the strange robed man; this energy was very similar to a physic Pokemon’s energy.

Hark’s eyes got big as this display of power, and he quickly deployed his blade as he looked the man’s dead eyes. This man’s eyes were strange but it wasn’t due to his powers. Hark suddenly realized this man not only was a psychic but was also blind. Hark felt very uneasy and his entire body had teased up.

“Let me be the first to welcome you to the nightmare realm,” said the man’s fading voice as Hark’s world turned to darkness. Hark tried to fight it but the man’s power over his mind was too much. How had he creeped into his head so easily? Then everything went black for Hark.

Opening his eyes for what felt like the first time in a decade Hark looked around, but he couldn’t see anything beyond two feet in front of him. He was surrounded by an unnatural darkness that he could reach out and touch and his fingers would disappear into it. He looked around and he was wearing nothing but rags with a robe like belt that held a strange oil lamp that kept the unnatural darkness away. Shaking his head he started to move forward in order to find a way out. The ground was cold and hard with an odd texture to it against his bare feet. Looking down he froze as he realized the ground was rock that was formed into the shape of tormented human faces. ‘Where am I?’ Thought the boy. Looking at his small hands he then thought, ‘Who am I?’ He then heard a strange grumbling noise, and the sound of large crawls scraping against stone. The boy froze in fear as he started to smell a foul odor. It was that of rotting fresh… The boy turned and started to run through the darkness, but whatever was making the noise suddenly started to move faster as well. It was chasing him…

Lannia could feel a powerful amount of psychic energy coming from this stranger and consuming her master’s mind. She could only watch as Hark collapsed to the ground as he was put into a coma by this stranger. She was unsure what to do, and had no idea what was going on or what this stranger had done.

“You can risk your sanity to try in pull him from the Nightmare… or enjoy your freedom,” said the man now facing her with a bone chilling smile. He then added, “If I were you I would pick freedom as he clearly doesn’t care at all for you.”

Lannia looked at the twitching Hark. He didn’t care for her, and would likely abandon her if she was in his situation. She stood there for several minutes before she slowly walked to his side and put a hand on his shoulder and felt his emotions he was filled with fear, despair, pride, and confusion were just the main emotions she felt. She looked up at the stranger and said in her own language, “I will not abandon him… not in this state.”

For once the man’s smile turned genuine and he said, “He really doesn’t deserve you. Look into my eyes and allow me to enter your mind. Unlike him you will be able to exit the Nightmare at will however you can’t reenter if you leave. Try to guide him if you dare...” She did as he told her and the world around her started to fade to darkness as he put her into an unnatural sleep.

Lannia looked around in the darkness and couldn’t see very far. Looking around she noticed she was different. She looked down and noticed she was much taller. Instead of her “natural” clothing looking like oversized pants she had a long flowing gown. Out of her chest poked a small red crystal which was glowing and keeping away the strange darkness that surrounded her. Lannia smiled as she looked over herself… she was a Gardevoir! Her excitement however ended when she heard the sounds of someone running and the emotion of fear and desperation, and not far behind was something dark and evil. He stopped looking at her new body and started running in the direction of the two…

The Training Session Ends... Or Does It?


Carl's Team
Spoiler:
Sting (Shield Dust) - Poison Sting, String Shot, Electro Web

As it always has been, the last part of the trek was the longest. At least to Carl. Having his mind focused on the summit only made it harder for him to climb up the rocks that were separating him from there. He did manage to get up a couple of them, but just when the exit of Jagged Pass was in the boy's sight, a huge rock stood in his way. He tried climbing it, but to no avail: his arms were too weak and the ash was not very helpful with getting him a grip. Then, all of a sudden he heard a very familiar voice from beyond the rock.

"Need any help?" the voice said.

Carl instantly recognized who it was, and his eyes sparkled with joy as he looked up at the rock. No way! This can't be! Is that- "F-Felicity? Is that you?" he asked, "What are you doing here?"

"You didn't think I would send you here while I stayed at the hot springs all day, did you?" she replied, "And, besides, it's been, like, a day! I wanted to check on you, how you were doing!"

"I'm...good. I had a...battle, you know" he said, "I lost, but, well, I think Sting got stronger."

"Aww, sorry to hear that. And he probably did!" she said, "Who knows, maybe it could evolve before you know it!" She then grabbed a Pokéball from her belt. "Anyway, what do you say I help you out with this rock over here? I can see it's bringing you some trouble." Carl nodded in response, not saying a word. "Alright, then. Poliwhirl, come out! Rock Smash on that huge rock!"

The Poliwhirl punched the rock and shattered the top, and the rest collapsed near Carl, making it easier for him to reach Felicity. The girl thanked her Pokémon for its good job and retrieved it. As soon as Carl reached her, his best friend gave him a big hug. However, what the boy couldn't see was that she looked somewhat concerned, perhaps even regretful about something. But when she pulled back there was a friendly smile on her face. "Now, what do you say we finally get to Mt. Chimney?"

"S-Sounds like a good idea!" he answered, and both went to the exit of the soot-covered Jagged Pass. Felicity looked at her friend and bit her lower lip, her eyes showing some concern again. I'll stick around some more... But it's gonna hurt so much when we split up, Carl... I'm not even sure if I can do this...

"I can understand that. I had a situation with the same concept, although not as big." he smiled "When I was young, I tried broccoli, and hated it. Still today, I can't eat broccoli. My past experience with it made it in-consumable." hearing his words Nylea smiled softly to herself and chuckled shaking her head. "Sure, you went through a rebellious stage, everyone does! Heck, I'm disobeying my mother by going on this journey, ya know? Everyone can make mistakes, and sometimes those mistakes turn into something beautiful, like your daughter for instance." the path got steeper as they neared the top. . "Listen, Nylea, nothing is anybody's fault. Everything..." he paused "Everything happens for a reason."

"My mother made me go on this journey" Nylea said softly glancing at Blaine. "I rebelled because my rich parents didn't let me do anything, they told me to go on this journey to become a Pokemon Breeder so I can take care of Rosa myself and not rely on my parents" Nylea looked around as they reached where the cable car was. "Looks like it's out of order"

"My mother made me go on this journey" Blaine caught the glance he sent her. "I rebelled because my rich parents didn't let me do anything, they told me to go on this journey to become a Pokemon Breeder so I can take care of Rosa myself and not rely on my parents." He listened carefully to what she said, chewing his lip softly. He was about speak up when she said, "Looks like it's out of order."

Blaine looked ahead of them and noticed the cable car. "Wow! We've come this far already?" He was pretty amazed. They managed to get around the Jagged Pass without getting attacked by any Pokemon! "Well...That sucks." He sighed. "So, it seems like we're gonna have to head up the pass itself." He gestured his head towards the area. "We may or may not be attacked by Pokemon, but no worries!" He grinned. "I'll protect you." He bowed in a joking sort of way. "Blaine Byron Berk, at your service."

Aya Ingvar - Chapter Two - Part 1



Aya's Team
Spoiler:
Ladon (Mold Breaker) - Scratch, Dual Chop, Leer
Grizzly (Pick Up) -Scratch, Fury Swipes, Fling

Aya brushed her hair back over her head after a brief gust of wind blew ash over the area she stood from the nearby caldera of Mt. Chimney. She had only one more ledge to climb up, and then it was down the cable car and onwards to the next route of her journey taking her one step closer to obtaining her first badge. Or so she thought.

Aya pulled herself over the steep ledge, walking across the hot craggy ground onto the large plateau that housed the higher end of the cable car. Behind the old, but sturdy looking cement building the last rise in the mountain before the peak of the volcano loomed blowing the odd flurry of volcanic ash over the area. This amazing sight however, was not the first thing that Aya noticed. A growing crowed of restless, disappointed and irritated trainers seemed to be growing inside the plateau. Aya looked around for the source of the irritation, but was unable to see anything past the crowd of people that had formed around the entrance to the cable car.
“Don’t tell me…”
“That the cable car is out of order?” a drawling voice said from off to Aya’s side.
Aya looked to her left to see a boy slightly older than she dressed in tan cargo pants, a simple grey-black shirt, an orange and blue jacket and a straw hat laying back against one of the few trees in the plateau in the shade with a wide grin on his face. A mismagius hovered behind him and a grovyle dozed on one of the trees branches – Aya assumed they were his.
“That’s certainly what I was thinking” she sighed “do you know how long it will be out for?”
“The notice from the staff said it will like take a few days to repair” the unknown boy replied, his grin never faltering “a fair number of folks have decided they’ll just take the more treacherous route and just climb down the mountain. Personally I’m more of a go-with-the-flow kind of a guy.”
I’ll bet…

Aya looked towards the side of Mt. Chimney, her mind pretty much made up the moment she saw another trainer already heading off in the direction she looked.
“I think they have the right idea” Aya laughed, making to head off down the volcano
“Be careful now miss…?”
“Aya, and you are?”
“Name’s Tex” he said, still perpetually grinning.
His name’s Tex… really?
Aya walked off, past the crowd – feeling somewhat odd as a result of her encounter with overly-friendly Tex.
“I keep running into some strange people on this journey” she muttered to herself as began her climb down Mt. Chimney.

Akito Sasaki


Chapter 2.3 - PSP!




Akito wandered around in circles for nearly an hour. Each time he ended back in the area where the Klefki was buried in the stone. The Klefki was still knocked out but Akito found an overwhelming urge to rescue it. After all who could ignore a Fairy Type Key buried in a stone like that?

Then Akito who was fed up, decided to go sit by the cave’s entrance. He rested himself comfortably on a rock. He then began to search his bag. After digging out tons of useless stuff, he eventually found something he didn’t know he had.

“Oh yeah, PSP. Time to play ‘Metal Gear Solid’ ” said Akito, loudly while he shouted Woohoos at the top of his voice.

Dava Lalonde 2.1


Team
Spoiler:
Prince (Elekid)
Static
Quick Attack | Thundershock | Flash | Low Kick

Geodude
Rock Head
Tackle | Defense Curl | Rock Throw | Magnitude


Geodude had carried Dava until their pursuer had given up. They had together, in silence, walked the last part of the ascent and reached the top by the time the air was dark around them. Instead of pushing on through the night, Dava didn't like darkness and the wilderness after all, she decided that they should stay and sleep near some big trees. She brought Geodude back inside its pokéball, still not sure how to thank it or even what to say after it had rescued her like that, and she took out Prince instead. No matter how mischievous he was, she trusted him better for now.

"Keep watch. If you want to sleep, poke me!" Dava ordered before she put out her flashlight and crept into her isolated sleeping bag, wrapping it up around herself like a Silcoon. Luckily, Hoenn was not cold in the nighttime. Just fresh.

When she woke up, the sun was up since some time. Prince sat at her feet, staring at her. She scolded him for not having awoken her if he had wanted sleep himself, but he didn't reply. Now, Dava's next goal, after some quick breakfast she had packed in her bag, to get to a toilet. She needed to freshen up. She did not like the outdoor life at all! But she was proud of herself, she had survived one night alone in the wild!

After a light hike, they reached the Cable Car Plateau. Without bothering to listen to the crowd of trainers and people who were muttering outside the building, Dava pushed her way through and got inside. Half an hour later, she emerged from a traveler's bathroom, as refreshed and clean as she could be. She had changed her clothes (which Geodude had dirtied) and taken a quick shower. Quite incredible how much could fit inside traveler's bags these days, if you were a girl with some willpower.

As she went to the small (and uncomfortably expensive) shop that was inside the Cable Car building, Dava couldn't help overhear some trainers talking. By the time she realized that what she was hearing was that the Cable Car was out of order, she had turned to stare at the trainers with a gaping mouth. When they saw her and raised their eyebrows, Dava quickly shut her jaw and went on her way.

Outside, she spat out her feelings to an Elekid who didn't have much choice other than to listen to his trainer.

"Out of order! How can they do this? Am I supposed to trek down the mountain myself again if I want any chance to catch up with..."

She stopped mid-sentence. If she wanted to reach Dani, her sister, she couldn't sit around and wait for several days. Dani wouldn't have hesitated to climb down herself. Dava shouldn't either. She wasn't the silly, weak sister. She was the strong, smart one. She would prove it.

"We're going," she told Prince and suddenly started walking past the crowd, towards the winding trail that led between even more treacherous rocks and cliffs than Jagged Pass...

Prince had been ready to electrocute her lightly to make her stop ranting, but when this was not necessary, it was his turn to raise his eyebrows. If he had had them. But he did follow her.

Cerulean Clarke, 17
Chapter 2.1 - Out of Order?
[Eevee - Anticipation - Tackle, Sand Attack, Baby-Doll Eyes]
--------------------------------------
Cerulean Clarke pulled herself onto a ledge, struggling and grunting the entire way until she was up. She stood, dusted herself off, and released a sigh. She looked over the ledge and to the path from hence she came. Cerulean had faced many a trial and tribulation; the hardest being the many ledges she had to climb just to make it to the plateau that the lift was on. She had lost sight of any trainers that she had resolved to follow, they were all too quick for her, all more determined than her - she had decided.

Cerulean unhooked the only pokeball on her waist. "Come on out, Eevee," she chimed meerily despite her situation. The Eevee emerged from the ball in a flash of color before it chimed in an equally happy tone, unknowing of what its trainer had been through while it was enclosed in the comfort of the pokeball. Cerulean gazed across the plateau to the grouping of people near an obscure object. She walked towards them, her heart sinking more and more as she heard "out of order!" in a stark protest. "Oh no," she muttered under her breath, clutching the strap of her satchel as she got closer to the angry crowd.

"What's going on?" she asked a person as she approached.

"The lift's down," the woman snapped.

Cerulean made a face of shock. She had did nothing to harm this woman but still she was as angry as ever. "H-how're we suppose to get across then?" Cerulean stammered.

"Heck if I know, find your own way." Cerulean inspected the woman, the pokeballs strapped to her belt told that she was a trainer. The blue haired girl only hoped that the woman's Pokemon weren't treated with such coldness.

Cerulean Clarke backed away from the woman to stand awkwardly out of place meters away from the disgruntled group. "Hey!" someone shouted her way causing her to jump, frightened. Eevee turned towards the approacher and bared her fangs, emitting a high pitched growl.

"Eevee!" the trainer chided. The pokemon glanced to its trainer with big brown eyes before softening her expression and moving towards Cerulean to nuzzle her stockings, seeking forgiveness. "What's it you want, mister?" Cerulean asked the approaching man, disregarding her Pokemon companion.

The man smiled. "I was going to tell you that most of the other trainers, like yourself, are taking the dangerous way down the mountain. Down there." He pointed past the lift towards disappearing figures of people; trainers were taking that dangerous across the mountain side.

"That's a long way..." Cerulean muttered, more to herself than the man as she took in the potential path.

"Yeah, it is. But it's also the only way to go," the man said, almost too lax for Cerulean to handle.

Cerulean sighed. "Very well. Let's go Eevee," she said, patting her thigh for Eevee to follow. "Oh, and thanks, mister!"

"The name's Tex!"

"Thanks Tex!"

Cerulean returned Eevee to her pokeball and made way for the trail. She dropped down a shallow ledge and emitted another sigh as the trail seemed to go on and on forever. Again, she resolved to following the silhouettes in the ash that were other trainers.

Chapter 2.1
Time to Climb Down!


Carl's Team
Spoiler:
Sting (Shield Dust) - Poison Sting, String Shot, Electro Web

Carl had finally reached Mt. Chimney. His best friend Felicity walked by his side, looking around the scenery. Before them the huge mountain that led to the volcano's fiery crater stood majestically, and nearby there was a line of people that looked annoyed. Carl followed the line with his eyes, and saw that it led to a small building which had some cables coming out of it. "I wonder what's that fuss all about." he said. "Yeah. It's odd..." Felicity said, "Let's take a look." With that both of them walked over casually the last one in line. It was a young boy, in his early teens, that was somewhat fidgety. Felicity knew about her friend's shyness, and instantly knew that she would be the one to do the talking.

"Hi there." she said, "Um, do you know what's going on?"

"Yeah..." the boy said, avoiding eye contact, "The cable car is out of order. I don't know when it will be working again."

"I see... Well, thanks!" she said, and walked away from the line.

"Well, this is inconvenient..." Carl commented, "What do you think we should do?"

"I don't know." Felicity said, and looked around for an answer. Many people around were setting up camp in the hot, rocky ground, others were making their way back to Jagged Pass to return to Lavaridge. The answer to Carl's question came to Felicity's head when a man from the line suddenly left and started to head for where the cable car would take them. Felicity looked in that direction, and quite a whole lot of people were opting for that. The hike down Mt. Chimney looked more dangerous than the trek up Jagged Pass, but Felicity was up for it. However, she wasn't sure if her friend was up for it. "Many people are climbing down the volcano. It looks rough, but I think we can handle it. What do you say?"

Carl smiled and nodded. "Okay. I'll go." he said happily. "It does look rough, but Sting and I have gotten stronger while climbing up Jagged Pass! I could even catch a new Pokémon there! But only if you stick with me."

"Of course I'm sticking with you, dummy!" she replied, "There's no way I'm letting you climb down this huge blazing mountain with only a Weedle!"

Carl and Felicity then headed over in that direction. Their climb down Mt. Chimney would begin shortly.

Quick Attack | Thundershock | Flash | Low Kick

Duke (Geodude)
Rock Head
Tackle | Defense Curl | Rock Throw | Magnitude


Dava was really careful when she walked the mountaineous terrain now. She did not want to get her clothes dirty AGAIN. Elekid jumped on cliffs beside her, but suddenly he froze and stared ahead.

"What is it, Prince?" Dava asked, worried that the vicious wild Geodude had caught up with them or something. But Prince pointed and Dava followed his finger with her gaze.

It was a young man, tall, seemingly strong and ruggedly handsome. At least in Dava's eyes, where she was an alone girl in a bothersome landscape. He could help, she was sure!

"Oh, hello!" she called out in a sing-song voice, turning on her charm as she approached smiling. Elekid rolled his eyes and only approached slowly.

"I seem to be lost," Dava said when she got closer to the entrance to the cave where Akito was sitting with his PSP. She ignored the fact that he was playing games or something. "Would you mind pointing me in the direction of Mauville City?"

Akito seemed to suddenly wake up from hibernation he quickly put away his PSP with an embarassed look on his face.

"Sorry. I was a bit too absorbed in my game. And actually I myself am lost. Name's Akito by the way. Maybe we could go along together for a brief moment?" replied Akito, seeming totally oblivious to Dava's sudden show of charm.

"Oh," Dava said, but her smile didn't falter. It wasn't like she was actually lost. She just wanted a reason to make him come with her, since she wanted to avoid more unpleasant encounters with wild pokémon. So his proposal fit her perfectly!

"That sounds very nice, let's go together towards Mauville!" she chirped. "Who might you be? My name is Dava and this here is Prince." She gestured towards the somewhat sourly Elekid that wobbled up to the humans.

"Name;s Akito nice to meet you Dava!" said Akito getting up finally.

Suddenly, Prince's stare shifted and he looked curious rather than sour. He had noticed the trapped Klefki, and walked up to it in slight confusion.

Aya continued to travel carefully downwards, she was in a difficult spot at this point and didn't want to fall down a cliff. It was with a sigh of relief that she got her feet on a flat patch of the rugged ground again.
"Whose idea was this again?" she queried, not actually talking to anyone in particular, as she proceded to continue her descent until she found herself on another plateau - one that was already occupied.

She surveyed it quickly, taking note of the two people already there. A young woman with an elekid, a boy with a video game addiction and a klefki trapped in some rubble - that the group seemed to be more or less ignoring.

"I don't suppose anyone is going to let that klefki out?" she chimed in.

Dava spun around at the sound of the new voice. Prince, standing just beside the Klefki in question, put his hands on his hips (does he even have hips though?) and nodded in Aya's direction.

"That Klefki tried to attack me so my Numel sent him spiralling into the rock." replied Akito to Dava.

He then heard Aya's voice and turned back. He noticed a girl with with an average height of about 5'5 feet.

'Sorry didn't notice you there. I guess I can break that Klefki free with my Heracross." said Akito, getting a tiny bit intimidated by the number of females around him.

Dava glanced at the new girl neutrally. She never automatically liked other girls; there was always a risk that they would try to seem more beautiful and clever than her. And she hated that. But she was well behaved enough to not act mean before she had the time to properly judge her competition.

Akito sent out Hercules and ordered, "Okay, hercules use buleet Seed and free that klefki from the rubble."

"Wow, genius." thought Hercules before he launched a series of five seeds to free the Klefki.

The Klefki managed to break free, withh some effort after Hercules' assistance. It glanced a cautiously at Akito, before floating away.

"Hey, are we just going to let it leave like that? Shouldn't someone, like... capture it?" Dava couldn't help saying. She was under the impression still that trainers tried to capture anything they could.

"I don't think I'll get along well with that thing. It would have probably starved to death, if not for one of you'll coming. Anyway what the heck do klefki eat?" Akito wondered.

Dava was at loss for words for a moment. She hadn't expected the food to be a reason for a trainer not to capture a pokémon. Now that she thought about it... What did pokémon eat? She had just given Prince some of her own food this morning, and Geodude hadn't wanted any and seemed to want to gnaw on some rocks instead.

"I actually have no idea," she admitted. "Well, maybe it was for the best then. Should we get a move on?"

"I think we should but what about her?" asked Akito motioning towards Aya.

Dava froze for a second but realized that she would be forced to acknowledge this new girl after all. She turned towards her and raised her eyebrows as if asking her what she thought herself.

Akito looked behind and the girl seemed to be standing at the entrance of the cave silently.

"So you coming?" asked Akito.

Aya couldn't help but raise an eyebrow at how blunt the boy was, and she took note of the poorly veiled looks given to her by the woman.
"I don't see why I couldn't stick around with you guys for a while, travelling in a group until we're all used to this terrain seems like a pretty good idea actually."

"Well, that's decided then. We'll stick together, at least until we reach Mauville City." Akito blurted out. He however did notice the raised eyebrow of the new girl.

He ignored it however and asked, "What's your name by the way? I'm Akito and this is Dava."

"Oh right, I completely forgot to introduce myself - normally I'm not so forgetful. I'm Aya, nice to meet you. What are your pokemon's names, since they're out and about?" Aya smiled politley at the duo, she didn't want to make any enemies.

"Well this is Hercules, my Heracross. he's my first pokemon. Also, i have a Numel called Vulcan. He's a bit tired from his battle with the Klefki so he's resting." he replied to the girl's question. He still felt nervous being the only man in the group.

"Pretty appropriate names I think. I have an axew named Ladon and a teddiursa named Grizzly. They're both resting for the time being though." Aya approached the elekid kneeling down at the rather surly looking electric type "and who might you be?"

Prince smiled and let his horns spark a little, as if he wanted to seem cool to this new girl. Maybe just to piss off Dava.

"That's Prince. He's a bit of a jerk now and then, but he's pretty strong," Dava replied in his place. She continued, since Akito had done it already, "and I also have a Geodude who's more of the silent type. His name is... Duke." She was kind of proud for coming up with that out of the blue, but Akito and Aya didn't need to know that.

She was still wary, but wouldn't let it show. Instead, Dava let on a calm smile towards the other girl. "Shall we go then? Akito, did this cave lead somewhere or should we continue in another direction?"

"I got lost in this cave, so I stopped for a bit. As far as I know you just land up in the same place." replied Akito.

Akito meanwhile thought about the two girls. Dava seemed to be cheerful and happy but he could make out that Aya thought he was a dud."Shall we be on our way ladies?" questioned Akito.

Various parts and projects in beginning stages of creation

Lannia ended up almost running into a young human boy that was running for his life. It only took Lannia a quick glance to realize this boy was likely Hark, however she didn’t have time to really make sure thanks to whatever was hidden in the darkness was still charging at them. Stepping between the boy and whatever was charging at them Lannia summoned forth a large amount of Psychic energy and used it to stop the monster dead in its tracks and sent it back a few feet.
There was a blood curling roar and some grunting as the creature recovered from the attack. The boy popped his head out from behind the Gardevoir to see what had been chasing him, but the darkness was still hiding its form. The boy reached down and grabbed the strange lamp that was still tied to his belt. He quickly removed the lamp from the belt and held the device high in the air. The lamp’s tiny flame intensified and it lit up a much larger area. The light was intense and it stopped the creature that was starting another charge by blinding it, and revealing its true form.

The creature was a massive bulky monster standing on six elephant like feet and towered above both Lannia and Hark. It had to be at least 12 feet tall, but its massively fat layered stomach almost reached the ground despite this. Its head jutted forward and was low to the ground. It had five sets of tiny eyes that where squinting from the bright light. Its mouth was a massive flesh rending black beak that was four feet long and had several strips of half eaten rotten flesh hanging from it. However this wasn’t its only mouth as it had several others (Lannia counted six others but there might have been more) that were just teeth filled gaping holes that were constantly drooling some foul smelling liquid.

Lannia and Hark could only stare at this goutiest thing for a second as its eyes quickly recovered and it started to charge them again. Lannia tossed it aside with her powers, but this was getting exhausting fast for her because of the creature’s size. She deflected another attack before Hark said, “Just hold it still next time ok?” She glanced down at the boy who was holding the lamp in one hand and a sharp stone fragment from the floor in the other. She shook her head and tossed the creature back again but she was already panting for breath from exerting herself so much. She wasn’t going to let Hark get himself killed. She came in here to help him, not to watch him die.
“Hold his head down before we both die,” ordered the boy. However his determination convinced Lannia to listen. So the next time the creature charged Lannia grabbed its head with psychic energy and held it down as Hark charged up and stabbed it in an eye with his makeshift weapon. He continued to stab the creature until it overpowered Lannia and tossed Hark off and into the darkness. Lannia panicked and ran in the direction of Hark but the creature kicked her with one of its massive legs as it also lunged toward Hark. The kick sent her flying backward and she hit her head on the hard stone and blacked out for a second. When she woke she could hear some horrifying screams and could see a flickering of light. Standing up she limped over toward the screams as fast as she could where she found a wounded Hark holding the scrap metal that used to be his lamp, and next to him was a burnt corpse of a monster.

“We did it,” said Hark with a smile as he stood up despite his many wounds.

“Hark that was amazing,” said a sudden voice from the darkness. “If you hadn’t destroyed Greed like that it would have consumed many more victims. With no weapons either that is impressive feat for sure! I dare say you are a true Hero!” Just then an attractive woman wearing a black dress appeared from the darkness holding a lamp in her right hand. She continued to praise Hark and beckoned him to come with her to her town so they could throw a feast in his honor. Lannia followed after them, but something was slowing her down, or speeding the other two up. She called out to Hark but his ears were too busy being filled with praise to take heed to her. She had felt like something with this woman was wrong and now she knew something was wrong. She had to warn Hark! She tried to push forward with all her strength and yell out but some dark force was holding her back. Soon Hark and the woman disappeared out of sight and Lannia was left there alone both hurt by Hark and fearing for him.

Hark and the woman reached a village that was centered around a vast meeting hall. There were shapes of people all around Hark but he couldn’t really make anyone out as the woman led him to a feast in his honor. His chest was puffed out and he felt like the most powerful man in the world, until he took the first step into the hall. He instantly fell through the fake floor into a large metal object. The black metal around him was very hot and it burned his skin. Looking up confused he saw the woman smiling down at him.

“Greed is often so blunt due to his unquenchable hunger that he doesn’t realize it’s much easier to just lure your prey in with false praise. You will make a fine feast for me and my children tonight,” said the woman as Hark started yelling for Lannia but she was nowhere to be seen. Just then several of those people that he saw carried up several large pails of boiling water. These people were some sort of twisted creatures with no eyes but massive hungering mouths and long talons for hands. In unison they poured the scourching water into the pot and all Hark could do was close his eyes and wait for the end that would not come.

“Pride cometh before a fall,” said the familiar stranger that had put Hark into this nightmare. Opening his eyes Hark’s memories and statue returned to him, but he was still in a dream. Instead of a pot he was in a bright room with nothing other than the stranger sitting on a bench beside him.
“What the… no wait why the **** did you do this to me?!” yelled Hark as he sat up.

“To hopefully help open your eyes quicker than I opened mine. After looking through your memories and mind it’s almost frightening how similar we are. We both thought ourselves better than the rest, and sought nothing more than to serve ourselves. We have used our gifts to promote our pride and quench our greed for power,” said the man with a normal tone. There was no smile on his face as he continued, “We were also both blessed with overly faithful and loyal companions, who we disregarded and only saw as another stepping stone to our own glory.”

“What the **** are you talking about?” asked Hark. The man leaned forward and put his hand on Hark’s forehead and shared with the boy some of his own memories.

“Skyna sacrificed herself to save me even though it was a fate I had brought upon myself and worse yet I never treated her with the respect or kindness she deserved. Don’t do the same thing with Lannia,” said the man with a deep sorrow in his voice he then changed the subject yet again, “Stop hating the world and blaming it for your failures Hark. You forsake Ranger in your own fear, and he died. You made a mistake that cost something else its life. You didn’t pursue the Pokemon that took off with Ranger and you let go to stop the pain. It’s not the world’s fault for “pressuring” you to be a trainer… no you were weak. However you did try so you can’t beat yourself up completely either.”

The stranger then stood up and said, “Don’t make the same mistakes as me…” The man then disappeared and Hark woke up. Gasping for breath and jumping to his feet Hark looked around but the man was gone. Looking down he saw that he had knocked Lannia down as he shot to his feet. Picking her up Hark muttered, “Sorry.”

He then shook his head and started down the volcano pass, still somewhat in a daze. His mind was spinning and still trying to recover from the shock from the nightmare and figure out what to do with the advice and information. Lannia sat in his hands thinking about what she too had experienced in the dream.

Eric Mathis Chap. 2.1 Half way there.

Riolu- Fera: Quick attack, Endure, Force Palm.

Eric groaned in exhaustion as he pulled himself up the ledge and Fera barking encouragement as he climbed the ten foot ledge face; with her on his back. “Rou, Rou, ROU!” Fera barked as he was reaching the top of the ledge face. “Fera…. Please stop the cheers, I’m losing focus.” Eric says as one of his hands slips on one of the last stones. “Rou.” She nervously yelps as he regains his grip. This had pretty much been the scene the past day. After then had reached Lavaridge town, He had stopped to get some food supplies, potions, medical items, etc. Then they left to head up the pass; but they took the wrong path. The path they took was long and winding until they had to climb about five or six ten foot ledges.

“Hey… look Fera, a clearing” Eric said excitedly. “Maybe we finally made it to the right path” He thought. “Rou…” She said pointing to the crowd of people near a building and what looked to be a lift station.
“Hey…. Uhh.. Fera…. Maybe we shouldn’t go over there in case someone recognizes me.” He said nervously. “Rou…. Orru.” She said pointing at the crowd walking that way. “Hey! Fera! Wait up!” He whispered hurriedly as he ran to join her.

As they approached the crowd nervousness wretched Eric, "what if someone recognizes me?" he said quietly. They approach the group quickly. Then seeing a girl with blue hair walk off in another direction. "Strange." He says walking up to a older man.

"Hello sir, can you tell me how to get to the top of the mountain?" Eric says politely. "Yes, young man. Over that way there is a path that leads up the volcano. You'll have to use it since the lift is out." The old man says pointing towards the direction where the blue haired girl went.

"Well thank you sir." Eric says walking towards the path. "Well fera, lets get movin' shall we." he says enthusiastically heading up the entrance to the path.

Chapter Two - Aya Ignvar, Dava LaLonde and Akito Sasaki


Aya's Team
Spoiler:
Ladon (Mold Breaker) - Scratch, Dual Chop, Leer
Grizzly (Pick Up) -Scratch, Fury Swipes, Fling


Dava's Team
Spoiler:
Prince (Static) - Quick Attack, Thundershock, Flash, Low Kick
Duke (Rock Head) - Tackle, Defence Curl, Rock throw, Magnitude


Akito's Team
Spoiler:
Hercules (Guts) - Tackle, Protect, Bullet Seed
Vulcan (Oblivious) - Ember, Magnitude, Tackle, Growl

Aya didn't really say much to the other two, although she did join in the conversation occasionally she just wasn't as much of a conversationalist as the other two, and it seemed pretty clear to her that Dava didn't like her much. She chose rather than speaking much, to focus on where they were going - having entered the caves thin confines the trio were walking in what was near total darkness towards a faint glow that they assumed would lead them back outside once more. The glow of the (supposed) exit and the occasional crackle of electricity from Prince were the only guiding lights available to the trainers.

Dava didn't like their cavetrip too much. It was hot and the air was moist in a strange way. She kept close to Prince and Akito's handsome body, just in case something would jump at them. She didn't even have focus enough to stay wary of Aya.

Noticing something however, Aya decided to speak up
"Have either of you realised the ground has just started to slope more? We're heading downwards so this cave should actually take us further down the mountain without us having to scale a cliff or anything. Good choice of direction so far Akito."

"Thanks." said Akito while on the contrary he was just felling embarassed.

Dava felt in front of her with her feet. The ground did indeed slope a bit on the hot stones.

"You're right! Ah, that's good at least. I don't like... darkness," she admitted in a weak-female voice.

Just as she said that, the glow in front of them expanded as they turned around a corner in the cave. And all of a sudden, the air wasn't as moist anymore. In front of them was a wide pool of lava, bigger than the hot springs system in Lavaridge. It bubbled occasionally but mostly floated silently in all its fiery redness. Here and there, it looked as if parts of the lava broke off and went up onto the cliffs.

Dava blinked when she noticed the weirdly behaving lava. But then she understood.

"Are those... pokémon?"

"I guess those are Slugma. I've battled some once. I believe very agressive Slugma hide in the lava and charge at whatever comes past them We need to stay careful around those things." mutterred Akito under his breath but just loudly enough for the others to hear him. He smiled. The previous day, before going to the Hot Springs he had memorized each and every pokemon's Entries in this exact area. That had paid off well.

Dava shuddered and moved closer to Akito, instinctively reaching for his arm to hold but hindered herself in the last second before contact. It would have been weird.

"It does make sense for them to be more agressive around humans, since they wouldn't come across us as much they could find it very intimidating to find us in their territory. I think if we go around the edge carefully though we should be okay." Aya hadn't heard of agressive slugma, in fact to the best of her knowledge they were usually rather passive. However, she wasn't going to risk being melted just because some information sounded odd.

"Ladon, come on out" Aya released the little green dragon-type from the confines of it's pokeball to which it cried out happily.

"Axew!" Ladon went to run ahead only to be grabbed by Aya.

"Careful now, we don't need you getting fried for no reason. You're out just in case they attack since you resist fire attacks, but don't go starting trouble. Akito you should get Vulcan out and Prince could be useful too, but he's out already. Shall we continue around then?"

"Yeah, Vulcan would be quite useful." said Akito sending out Vulcan. He himself was not sure about Vulcan. If he told Vulcan to use Magnitude on the Slugmas then there was a good chance that Vulcan would use Ember on them.

Vulcan came out of his Pokeball half asleep. He lay on the ground for a few seconds before his ears started moving. He stretched lazily and got up he looked at Akito and thought that his trainer had sent him out for some random battle. He then looked at Aya and Dava for an instant. Then probably thinking 'What in The World are These females doing here.'

He got into battle position and growled as savagely as he could. Only Akito's wordings, "Whoah, easy boy." calmed him down. Then he saw the lava and his first reaction was 'Hey go and jump in the lava.' He then stopped himself and decied that all these humans probably needed his protection.

Dava didn't know much about pokémon battling, but she did know a bit about pokémon themselves. She had groomed the Mareep Princess for contests, after all.

"Actually, I think Prince should take a rest for now," she said and returned him to his pokéball before he could object or try to avoid the beam from the ball. "From what I recall, Geodude - I mean Duke! - will do better in an environment like this!"

The Geodude - I mean Duke - came out and blinked blankly at its trainer, who grinned proudly at actually knowing something useful for once. Then Dava turned to Aya and nodded. "Ready now!" It was hot and uncomfortable in the cave, but somehow Dava was starting to feel thrilled, in a positive way. Strange.

"Okay, stick together. Nobody want's to get burnt by bugs made of lava right?" Akito tried to sound cheerful while saying those words. They then began moving around the lava, far enough from the Slugma.

Aya followed suit behind Akito, staying close to the edge of the room and heading for the exit on the other side. She felt somewhat foolish forgetting about Dava's Geodude (which was evidently named Duke), but she put that out of her mind focusing on the positives. Both Vulcan and Duke could potentially posess attacks super-effective against the large group of slugma and as she had already said, Ladon resisted fire attacks.

Despite feeling reassured by the pressence of their pokemon, Aya still let out an inaudible sigh of relief upon reaching the end of the cavern though (inaudible because her pride would not let her make such a noise loud enough to be heard). The group, their pokemon by their sides, moved through the passage at the end of the slugma cavern - only to arrive in another, slightly larger cavern. This cavern also contained a small pool of magma, however it was off to the left of the cave. What really got Aya's attention was the presence of a young woman .

Akito narrowed his eyes a bit. it was a bit difficult to see. Then he could make out a slender figure wearing blue jeans and a black shirt. There was a Camerupt beside her. It constantly shot out flames from it's nose. Dava raised an eyebrow; the woman in front of them reminded her of her rough sister Dani somehow. Akito finally realized who it was. "Whoah, that's Flannery." he said with a look of awe.

"Definitely..."
I'm standing only a few feet a way from the most skilled trainer to come out of Lavaridge in decades. It was at that moment, that the red-haired young woman turned to look at the three trainers watching her.

"Well hello, you three. It's pleasant to see someone for a change!" she exclaimed, seeming quite excitable and happy, a wide grin plastered on her features.

Hark was quiet as he carried Lannia into the volcano. His mind was still consumed around the events that were caused by the powerful psychic as he started down the side of the mountain. The ledge was small and it made for a dangerous climb down. Seeing a nearby cave entrance Lannia pointed to it. The heights and tiny ledge was scaring her and she wanted to take a different route than risk falling. As they started to pass it Lannia became more insistent and was able to snap Hark out of his thoughts. Looking at the cave Hark looked back at Lannia and said, “There will likely be many hostile Pokemon in there… you prefer taking that risk over this ledge?”

Lannia nodded and Hark entered the cave deciding to listen to her as it didn’t matter much to him as long as they got down. Hark moved slowly and he carefully scanned the cave walls and ceiling for movement. Suddenly Hark stopped as he heard some squeaking noise coming from the roof. He looked the direction of the noise, but couldn’t see their source. He continued to move but was trying to be quiet. However the supersonic hearing of the Zubats could easily hear the sneaking human and Ralts. Suddenly a small swarm of disturbed Zubats started flying in every which direction around the two. Lannia moved in closer to Hark as they swarmed around for a few seconds then flew deeper into the cave, leaving the two unharmed for now.

Sighing a little Hark muttered, “I remember my dad complaining about those things… how they constantly attack you in caves.” He then started forward with Lannia close behind him. Stumbling around for a bit, Hark shook his head then pulled out his Pokedex and turned it on. Finding a bright screen he started using it like a flash light. “Considering all the junk I brought I can’t believe I forgot a flashlight,” he muttered as he glanced down at the silent Lannia. She didn’t seem talkative and it made Hark wonder if the darkness of the cave reminded her of the dream.

“Hey… thanks for helping in that dream, I wish I could say I didn’t need your help. However it was pride that got me… and she only did it after separating me from you. I will not leave you like that again since it appears I need more help than I think I do,” said Hark. Even though it was a dream he hated that he had been so easily defeated. He wanted to think he could have gotten through the situation alone, but he doubted that would have worked. No, he needed a reality check otherwise the next situation might not be a nightmare, but the real thing.

Lannia thought about Hark said, but she wasn’t going to just accept an apology like that and go on her way. He had shown how little he valued her to the point she couldn’t deny the glaring truth. That man had reached into her mind as well, and had opened her eyes to the truth. However he had also given her something to think about. She just had to decide what she wanted to do but it’s hard to make such life changing decisions in a short time. Her train of thought was interrupted by a high pitched squeal.

A disturbed and rather grumpy Zubat swooped down and bit Lannia’s head causing her to yell out in pain. She pushed it away with her psychic powers but it just started flying around madly and taking little bites that sucked a little blood from Lannia each time. Hark tried to swat it but failed, and Lannia couldn’t grasp it while it was flying around randomly. Quickly changing her attack method she gathered up energy and waited. When the Zubat bit her for a 7th time she quickly sent all that energy toward the area where she felt pain. The Zubat was fast but not fast enough. The burst of psychic energy blasted the blind pokemon sending it into the cave wall with great force. Before it could recover Hark said, “Lannia pull those rocks on top of it.” The Ralts quickly grabbed a few loose rocks and shifted them from their position so they rolled down on the Zubat before it could take back off. One rock hit it right on the head and knocked it out.

Hark didn’t get a chance to celebrate as the sounds of more leathery wings beginning to take flight filled the air. “I think we made them angry,” said Hark as the first ones began to attack them. He scooped up the wounded Ralts and began to run. A swarm of Zubats chased after them, biting Hark every chance they got. As Hark ran he realized the tempature was rising and soon he found a path that was slightly lit by something. Gasping for breath and sweating Hark stopped running as he realized the Zubats were gone. Moving forward slowly he soon found himself looking down into the belly of the dormant volcano. Setting down the Ralts he quickly pulled out a potion and healed her with it. “Well there seems to be another cave entrance down there on the side,” muttered Hark looking down and to his left. Before he started forward again he sat down to take a quick breath. Lannia walked around and took in her surroundings, she didn’t like this heat and wanted to press on, but Hark looked like he needed to rest so she didn’t push him to keep moving for now.

Chapter 2.2
The Hike Down


Carl's Team
Spoiler:
Sting (Shield Dust) - Poison Sting, String Shot, Electro Web

Carl shuddered as he took his first steps down Mt. Chimney. He wasn't a big fan of heights, and seeing the road before him turned his legs to jelly. And it certainly wasn't one of those situations in which one could say 'Don't look down' to oneself. He had to look down if he didn't want to end up as 'Carl on the Rocks'. Felicity had less problems with the surroundings, and stopped to see her partner shaking in one spot. She hiked back up to him and grabbed his hand. "Come on, let's get going!" she said, and Carl only gulped down in response. "Listen I know it looks a lot scarier than you thought, but I'm sticking around, alright?" When her partner nodded, Felicity slowly began to hike down, followed by a hesitant, frightened Carl.

"See? It's not that bad!"

"I s-suppose. But you're stronger than me."

Felicity thought about that, and he was right. Then she had an idea. Perhaps catching a Pokémon would make Carl more confident to climb down the volcano! And judging by the terrain, strong, tough Pokémon were likely to be living around, so it would be a plus for him. "Say, Charlie..." he said, "What do you say we start the second part of your training right now?" Carl was confused by her words. "Second part? Training? Whatever do you mean?" he replied.

"Well, climbing up Jagged Pass was a part of training session!" she said, "Didn't you get stronger? I thought I saw you more confident when we met at the top!"

It didn't take long for Carl to see that she had a point. Although he didn't climb up Jagged Pass all by himself, he and his Weedle had gotten stronger. He smiled upon the realization, and grew excited about what the next part of it. He didn't have to say anything for Felicity to see that he was eager to know what that second part of his training would be about. "Well, since you obviously want to know... your next, um, assignment is quite simple." she said with a smirk, "You have to catch a Pokémon!"

"What? Isn't that a huge step?"

"Maybe. But if you do it, it will be way easier for you to hold your own in battles, or rough places like this one!"

Felicity, once again, had a point.

After trying to rest for three minutes Hark gave up. He pulled a small water bottle from his backpack and took a drink before saying, “Lannia, here.” The Ralts looked back at Hark from the ledge she was looking over. Seeing the water bottle she rushed over and grabbed it. She drank all the water she could and was finally stopped when she realized she had drunk all of it. She felt suddenly ashamed and handed back the bottle with her head hanging low.

“I’m such an idiot for not being better prepared… I have one more bottle left. We need to get out of this heat before we sweat out what little water we do have,” said Hark as he started toward the cave corridor he had see earlier. Hark quickly found the path he was taking to be very difficult. At one point Lannia almost fell and he had to recall the Ralts to save her from falling to her doom. Despite this, Hark was able to make it to the chosen exit from the volcano’s belly.

Hark walked down the corridor several feet to get away from the heat before stopping to rest again. Releasing Lannia from her ball, Hark leaned against the cavern wall gasping for breath. The heat was lower the further they got from the core of the volcano, but the darker it got as well. “So we have a choice of darkness or heat. Sadly I think darkness is the safer option as the heat was getting worse and we simply do not have the water to continue dealing with it.” Pulling out his Pokedex he used the screen to light the way as they weaved down the closing in cavern walls. Thankfully they didn’t run into any Zubats, but the cave was getting smaller and soon Hark was forced to crawl on his hands and knees through this path. As Hark slowly pressed forward he suddenly heard something scream, “NOS PASS!”

Hark used his Pokedex to light further ahead on the path in front of him just in time to see a rather large rock coming toward him. Hark had little time to do anything but curl his face into his chest to protect it as the rock smashed into his head with a powerful force, dazing him.

Seeing Hark get pounded by a rock Lannia darted between his legs and arms just as he collapsed to the floor. Seeing another rock incoming she summoned up some of her mental powers and tried to force the rock backward, but only succeeded in slowing it a little bit. She took the hit this time and the blunt force knocked her back and knocked the wind right out of her. Looking up she could see a Nosepass being lit up by the Pokedex screen that was luckily still pointing in its direction.
Lannia knew she couldn’t pick the rock type up with her mental powers so she started conjuring up a group of rose petals (her personal version of Magical Leaf she summons flower petals instead of leaves), The Nosepass was already preparing to throw another rock, and Lannia’s attack was not ready when it threw the rock at Hark. However it just glanced his metal arm this time.

Lannia was about to unleash her attack when Hark muttered in a dazed voice, “I think… it’s trying to hit the light.. or something.” He then shifted the position of the Pokedex to the right and the Nosepass’ focus moved to follow it. “I’ll hold its… eyes… you…” painfully said Hark, but Lannia suddenly grabbed the device with her abilities. She began to move it toward the Nosepass in little patterns to make it hard to hit. The closer the light got the more frantic the Nosepass got as it tried to destroy the light source. While the rock type was distracted, Lannia was summoning more and more petals. The Nosepass finally hit the Pokedex causing the screen to crack and the light go out, but Lannia then unleashed her own attack. A massive flood of magical petals filled the small passage way, and engulfed the Nosepass. The grass type attack hit the Nosepass hard and sent it reeling in pain. However it was not out of the fight yet.

Anger filled the Rock type’s mind and it picked up a large rock and threw it at the small emotion Pokemon, hitting her hard. Lannia was losing this fight, but suddenly she felt a strange wet mist cover her and restoring her strength. “Stop standing there… that’s silly… try not getting hit… you can beat that ugly. Just stop thinking of it as a fair fight…. No rules…. Just win it,” said Hark, who was using his invention’s HUD to see the general location of his Pokemon and the Nosepass. However he was mostly blind and still dazed. Lannia nodded and started to dart back and forth.

The Nosepass was suddenly having a hard time hitting the unusually fast Ralts and decided it was time to get up close and personal. He suddenly began to charge at Lannia, and she had a sudden idea. She stopped moving close to a wall and started focusing her mental power. Right as the Nosepass was about to slam her into the cave wall the Ralts suddenly dove to the ground while focusing her psychic energy toward her feet. The Nosepass glanced Lannia’s little white toes and suddenly with the help of the Ralts gained a massive amount of momentum. The result was that the Nosepass slammed into the hard rock with the combined force of its own momentum and the “push” that Lannia gave it. The Nosepass bounced off the hard rock and onto its back where it lay motionless.

Lannia’s plan had worked! She smiled as Hark muttered, “you’re fast...” He then started to crawl forward slowly before running into the wall himself. He muttered something to himself as he tried to figure out which way to go. Lannia walked up to him and took his real hand and started to pull him in a direction. She was using her Psychic powers to “feel” her way down the corridor.

Hark followed his Ralt’s lead trying to act normal, but his world was still spinning and his mind was cloudy from the blow. He could also feel blood leaking from the wound on his head. He didn’t want to alert Lannia, and he wanted to get out of the darkness before he tended to it so he did his best to act normal as he was led by Lannia. However Lannia was worried as she had noticed his less coordinated movements and the fact his speech was so strange. She was moving as fast as she could drag Hark in what she hoped was the right direction…

Aya, Akito and Dava vs Flannery!

Dava, Aya and Akito stood on the rocky floor in the big cave under Mt Chimney, pools of lava around them with Slugma creeping about and just ahead of them on some large rocks in the middle of it all: the former gym leader of Lavaridge Town, and one of her pokémon. Camerupt.

"Flannery!" Dava burst out with a relieved smile at last. "We're so glad to see you here! We only wanted to go down from the mountain without waiting forever for the cable car, but this cave only seems to lead deeper and deeper in under the mountain..."

The elite four member stepped down from the cliffs, coming closer to them, with a raised eyebrow. "You were heading through these caverns to get to Mauville?"

"Yes, exactly!"

"But the way you are going, you will end up north. Near the northern edge of the Desert."

The trainers looked at each other. Neither of them had really known which way the tunnel would lead; it had been a chance. Finding Flannery certainly was a streak of luck, then.

Flannery laughed and reached for a pokéball. Sending the Camerupt - who had been staring blankly at the three trainers - back into its pokéball, she finally walked up to the trio with a look that was growing increasinly mischievous.

Dava recognized it; that was how Dani looked now and then when she wanted to play a joke or use Dava in some way. And the reason Dava knew what that looked like was that she knew that she herself looked the exact same as her twin sister when she felt the same. Only, she actually went through with her deeds, as opposed to how Dani was too just and fair to play it dirty.

"I could help you out, of course," Flannery said, smiling deviously. "I know these tunnels well, and the Slugma are all my friends and wouldn't attack us. But... I'm actually down here to train, and I'm not really done yet. So if you want my help to get out, you need to help me train first. Battle me!"

Dava was surprised. Flannery was a member of the elite four! There was no way they were ready to battle her now. At least not she. She had hardly learned how to manuever a pokémon in a dirty battle as opposed to the sweet, careful showbattles of pokémon contests. Maybe Akito and Aya were more experienced though?

Aya couldn't help but notice her eyes widen at the challenge. Sure, she was confident in her abilities despite it being early days in her journey but she wasn't sure that even the three of them together could defeat Flannery. Any degree of success against such a skilled trainer though... would be such a huge boost at such an early point in my travels... and I can't exactly pass up a challenge like this.

"What are the conditions?" Aya asked cautiously, fighting back her excitement so she could keep a clear head. Flannery smiled, a vigorous air about her, before responding to the less experienced trainer.

"You each use one pokemon at the same time against one of mine"

Aya couldn't help but grin back slightly, she didn't think they could win but she would certainly try. "Fine by me, ready Ladon?"

"Axew!"

"What about you guys?"

Fight Flannery? Aw, come on! was the first thought that came in Akito's mind. Here was a Elite Four member and he was nothing but a novice trainer. He wasn't sure about Dava and Aya. But at the end of it they were not experienced trainers. Flannery on the other hand was an Elite Four member. He then thought. It would be an excellent opportunity to battle Flannery and improve his battling skills. It would help him later on when he challenged the Elite Four. Then he contemplated what pokemon he would send. Hercules would be weak against fire types, so he said "I'm in it. I'll be using Vulcan."

Vulcan poked his head out through Akito's head before realising that Akito had asked him to battle. He then came out and rubbed his leg on the ground threatening Flannery. "How sweet. I remember my Camerupt when he was a Numel." Flannery laughed. Vulcan then growled as he threatened to fry Flannery.

"What's your pokemon Dava?" questioned a very worried Akito. He didn't show any worry on his face but his limbs felt stiff.

"Aah... I'll..." Dava stuttered. She felt somewhat weak after seeing Aya accepting the challenge head on. Usually, Dava was the one to never back down. But this was kind of an unusual situation. She swallowed and put on a brave face. "Duke will do well," she said.

Her Geodude blinked and turned around to face Flannery, hovering closely above his trainer's head.

Flannery looked over the trio of beginners, the familiar sense of anticipation that came with every battle making her feel like leaping on the spot. Adrenaline coursed through her veins - sure it would probably be easy but the thrill of a battle was always the same... even if she would prefer it to be longer.

"Alright the, I'll use this guy then." Flannery tossed a pokeball int the air and in a flash of near-blinding white light a figure emerged. Far taller then any of the trainer is the room, sharp claws and red, yellow and cream coloured fur. A Blaziken, and it looked raring to go... albeit disappointed with its competition.

"Let's get right into this!" Flannery called, unaibale to fully hide her excitement "Blaze Kick on the geodude!"

Aya watched in awe as the tall bird-like pokemon leap for Duke from where it stood, preparing to slam one of its powerful legs (now engulfed in flames) into the small rock type. Dava gasped, not fully ready for the battle to start so abruptly. She had honestly thought that the stronger trainer would have let them have the first move. But apparently that wasn't Flannery's style.

As the mighty fire pokémon got closer though, the miliseconds passing, Aya snapped back from her watching, ready for the battle to come.

"Dual Chop!" she ordered, Ladon leaping to Duke's aid knocking the Blaziken to the side - where it landed on its feet - with apair of glowing blue chops from his tiny arms.

Dava turned to stare unappreciatively at Aya while Flannery raised an eyebrow. "You're actually going to work as a team? I'm impressed. Blaziken, use Mirror Move and give the little dragon a taste of its own medicine."

Not good... a super-effective attack like Dual Chop will easily take Ladon out

" Vulcan use Tackle." ordered Akito. The tiny fire type charged at Flannery's Blaziken. It managed to prevent Blaziken from attacking Ladon but the Blaziken was obviously unfazed.

Training with Slugma might be fun...... but there's always such an awesome feeling battling other people thought Flannery. Her heart was pounding fiercely while she debated what move she had to choose. "Blaziken, use Quick Attack on the Numel."

Before any of the other pokemon could block the attack Blaziken moved as fast as lightning and smashed Vulcan back. Akito grimaced. Vulcan was probably fine but that would have taken a large chunk of Vulcan's hitpoints.

Aya watched as in a flash of speed the Blaziken sent Vulcan reeling.
What can I do? I can't use Dual Chop unless it is distracted enough and Leer and Scratch will do even less damage...

Dava felt disoriented. Akito and Aya were sending out attacks and Flannery's eyes gleamed as if she was really enjoying their imminent defeat. No. She hadn't started this journey to lose battles, at least not without trying. Duke glanced back at her and she nodded. Time to become better than her twin sister.

"Come on then!" Flannery shouted at them, smiling. Blaziken took an imposing fighting stance and swayed slowly towards the poor Vulcan.

"Duke, Magnitude!"

Duke didn't hesitate; a shudder of power went through his body before he smashed down into the ground with both his fists, transferring the built up power to the earth below them. The stone floor between Dava and Flannery started cracking up, and all the trainers and pokémon felt the ground shaking slightly, accompanied by a low rumble from the cave.

Dava almost fell over from the rumbling; she hadn't counted on it affecting anything around them. When she looked up, she saw that Blaziken was in the air. It had jumped up and avoided the attack, and was hovering almost gracefully as if defying gravity above their heads now. At least it felt that way to the onlooker, while in reality it was only there for a few seconds. Then came Flannery's next command.

"Blaze Kick on Geodude!"

The leg flared up. Dava's brain went into hyper mode. What could she do? What could hit it while it was in the... air...

"Rock Throw!" she called out. But Blaziken had jumped back up into the air already, maybe to avoid another Magnitude counter attack. If nothing else attacked it now when it was distracted by Duke, her rock pokémon would take serious damage. Type resistance didn't mean much when facing an opponent of such immense power.

If there was one thing you could say about Aya, it might be that she knew an opportunity when she saw one. "Dual Chop Ladon!"

The axew leapt into the air, tiny hands glowing a bright blue as he shot toward's Duke's aid. Ladon swung it's left arm first hitting the fearsome blaziken and causing it to lose it's balance in the air. With a crashing noise, the flaming foot of Flannery's pokemon slammed into the ground just before Duke, leaving an deep hole that is was now pulling it's leg from. Ladon then slammed the head of his larger opponent, disorienting him further as Ladon landed.

Dava didn't stare in a bad way towards Aya now. She suddenly felt like she realized what they were doing, what she was doing here. They weren't just showing off for a member of the Elite 4. They were cooperating. Aya wasn't mean when she made the Axew save Duke from getting crushed, as much as Dava would have liked to think so. She couldn't think so anymore. They were in this together.

"Now Jump up again, quickly!" Aya added, Ladon obeying without question.

One of you guys take the opportunity! Aya found herself hoping desperatly. Flannery merely looked amused.

"Flame Charge!" Flannery called. As a torrent of fire engulfed her blaziken cracks began to move from the hole it was now stuck in - and quickly.

"Hurry!" Aya yelled, not sure if she was talking to Dava or Akito.

If I don't act fast then Ladon's going to faint................. a thougt came into Akito's mind. Okay, Ladon's in mid air and that Blaziken's in the ground.

Dava reacted surprisingly fast too. The two trainers called out in choir:

"Vulcan use Magnitude!"

"Duke, Magnitude!"

The Numel's eyes glowed white. An aura surrounded him as he smashed the ground with his foot, right about when the Geodude's fists slammed into the ground once more. A miniature earthquake shook the battlefield and the Blaziken became distracted. So the fire around it disappeared but the Blaziken got out of the hole it was stuck in.

"Blaze Kick." Flannery called cooly.

An inferno of flame seemed to engulf the Blaziken's right leg. It was only a few seconds till that kick struck Vulcan and that would probably be Vulcan's last hit in the battle. There was no time to use Magnitude and Tackle and Growl would probably prove to be futile. Akito closed his eyes and hoped that Ladon would use Dual Chop and break Blaziken's leg bone or something.

"How did that not work!" Aya felt quite helpless as Flannery's blaziken launched itself back at Vulcan. She was forced to think quickly, but the only idea she had was going to take too long.

"Sorry, Vulcan will have to take the hit." she then turned to Dava. "Get Duke to throw Ladon at Blaziken. Duke's strong so this should work out okay."

"Throw him? Right at the enemy? He'll be engulfed!" Dava protested wildly.

Please listen to me Dava, just once, Aya begged desperately inside her head, opening her mouth to voice it, even though she knew they had no time to argue.

Seriously. Just then a crazy idea came into Akito's mind.

"This may sound absurd but Vulcan use Growl!" Vulcan stared at Akito for a second before letting out a cry that would have made an Exploud proud. The Blaziken distracted once again cupped it's hand over it's ears and stopped. Akito could make out that nobody could stand the noise but he had to do some things for his pokemom. While the Blaziken was distracted, Akito looked pleadingly at Dava. That Blaziken would soon come and smash Vulcan's face as Vulcan's growl had considerably weakened.

The look Akito shot Dava told her enough. There was no time for arguing. Only action.

"Duke, Tackle!" she began, then put a hand on her pokémon's head to make it look up at her. "On its legs."

Duke nodded and shot away the moment Blaziken started to regain focus. However, it was too late. The rock boulder pokémon crashed with all its force into Blaziken's right leg, making it fall over with a cry of pain. It didn't matter what level you were at - a low blow is low.

The trainers rejoiced. It seemed like they had triumphed at last, with Blaziken on the stone floor, moaning. But Flannery shook her head with a chuckle.

"Flame Charge, full power," she said camly.

It was as if a switch turned in Blaziken's eyes. Without even getting up from the ground, it started growling and you could see its fists shaking from gathering power. Duke, Ladon and Vulcan all staggered back in anticipation. But they stood no chance.

When the shockwave of flaming air came, the trainers were just outside its blast range. They felt the hot breeze touch them, but were left without burns. The pokémon standing closer didn't manage so well. When the humans looked up after having shielded themselves from the blast, they were met with a terrible sight. All three smaller pokémon lay motionless on the ground, signs of burns on their bodies. It had not mattered that all of them had an innate resistance to fire moves. Blaziken was too strong.

"Duke!" Dava called out desperately and ran up to her fallen pokémon. The ground was scorching hot beneath her feet, and so was the Geodude's body.

Akito bit his lip. That Blaziken was too strong. He then walked over to Vulcan's side and sat beside him. There were burns all across the tiny pokemon's body and a look of shameful defeat on his face. Akito stifled a laugh. It was a bit funny looking at a Numel with a look of injury on his face. He returned Vulcan back to his pokeball and then felt across his own forehead. He was sweating. But he had enjoyed every bit of the previous battle.

Aya looked on in a amazement at the strength of the Flame Charge, it had been so powerful that the blaziken had not even needed to make contact as was customary with the move. The cavern was scorched in places and the trio's pokemon lay motionless suffering from burns.

"Sorry about that... I might have gone a bit overboard" Flannery called from across the room, returning her blaziken but Aya only had eyes for Ladon at that moment. She ran to the little dragon's side and quickly proceded to spray him with a potion and a burn heal.

"You did a really good job out there, you were really brave too." she encouraged her companion before returning him to with the confines of his pokeball. Aya hadn't really been expecting to win, but she couldn't help but feel disappointed and - shocking herself - she found herself quite angry with Dava.

If maybe she had listened and done what I asked instead of ignoring me and going crazy with Akito we could have at least done better. It was simple, hurl Ladon at the blaziken whilst it was distracted with Vulcan and hit with a boosted Dual Chop... then the others could have used Maginitude on the downed blaziken and done some serious damage! Or maybe that is just me being sour and overestimating Duke and Ladon's capabilities? Gah! I don't know but this Dava woman has been giving me filthy looks the whole time and now this?!

Aya pulled herself together, despite the rage in her head, and stood up.

"Thanks for battling with me guys" she said to Akito and Dava - trying to hide her animosity towards the latter "and thanks you for battling against us Flanenry! To think so early in our journeys we got to go head to head with one of the elite four!" she added.

Flannery grinned at her opponents
"You guys are welcome! The path behind me opens up onto a small plateau. From there you can head downwards to the right and no matter which path in that direction you take you will eventually get onto Route 112. You guys have a lot of potential I think, good luck with you on your journeys and I look forward to battling you again one day."

Dava was too bewildered to notice any feelings stemming from the other girl. She was still sitting down beside Duke and nodded while Aya and Flannery talked. That was a real battle.

Carl Bizarro
Chapter 2.3
The Fall


Carl's Team
Spoiler:
Sting (Shield Dust) - Poison Sting, String Shot, Electro Web

After a few seconds of thinking about Felicity's idea, Carl Bizarro decided to go along with it. With a teacher as experienced as she was and a student with a mind like his, the process of learning how to catch a Pokémon was supposed to be a walk in the park. "Well, Carl," she said, "Shall we get started?" Carl replied with a nod, and Felicity motioned for him to move. Both of them continued their trek down Mt. Chimney, with their minds alert for any wild Pokémon that lived nearby. As they moved Carl could see a couple of Slugmas climbing up the volcano, some Machops training by shattering boulders, and even some Geodudes that were napping and could be easily mistaken for boulders or part of the rocky floor. However, none of them appealed to him, and he continued to look around restlessly for a Pokémon that would suit him.

The pair continued their trek down for some more minutes, and Carl still had not taken any interest to the Pokémon that passed his way. What was more, the road before them appeared to turn more treacherous the more they moved forward, and both of them were forced to slow their pace down for their safety. The boy, really not used to this type of terrain, was getting tired, and asked Felicity for a time-out. She agreed happily, and both looked for some sort of cave where they could set up camp for a while, as the terrain was clearly not made for camping. Carl quickly spotted a small cavern, and made his way there, but as soon as he entered a horde of Zubats screeched and flew right into his face, knocking him backwards and making him take a tumble down Mt. Chimney. Felicity gasped, and tried to rush over to where he was, but the ledges were making her go very slowly.

Carl was tumbling down and in a lot of pain. His arms were too sore to move and thus he was unable to call out Sting. When he stopped falling, he cried out in pain, unable to move. "FELICITY! HELP!" His best friend heard his faint screams, and she began to hike down faster. "I'm coming, Carl! Just a moment!" she shouted worriedly back at him. The huge amount of pain that the boy felt began to fade after a while, but so did his consciousness. The last thing he heard before passing out were some sinister giggles that were coming closer.

"Kehehehehe..."

Hercules (Guts) - Tackle, Protect, Bullet Seed
Vulcan (Oblivious) - Ember, Magnitude, Tackle, Growl
It had been a while since Akito, Dava and Aya had left Flannery along the path. Flannery had waved them good bye as they left along the small path. Then he stopped and looked around him. This was that small plateau which Flannery had told them about. He then searched in the right for the path along the right where they were supposed to go.

After searching, Aya pointed out to that he was searching in the left and not the right. Akito, who was immediately embarassed started heading along that way. It was quite a wide pass. Now all of them could walk along with each other unlike the previous path where Aya and Dava had to follow behind Akito.

Akito then narrowed his eyes in front of him and he saw a bit of light. he motioned to the other girls to follow him. Then all of a sudden, Hercules' pokeball began to shake. Hercules came out and stood in front of the future great trainers. Akito understood that Hercules was trying to warn them. Then there came the sound of snapping jaws. Akito turned around to see three greyish - giant mouths sliding noiselessly on the ground.

Dava shrieked. Aya looked round to see a group of three yellow and black humanoid pokemon, each one stood around at her knees in height and none of them looked happy.
"Does anyone think those mawile look really unhappy to see us?" Even as she said it she hear more snapping

"Oh good, there's more of them." The three closest to the trio of trainers seemed to be the ring-leaders of the group of steel/fairy types that had the young trainers pretty much surrounded, but Aya didn't particularly want to to deal with any of them with Ladon still recovering and Grizzly and Ladon both having no moves that could do much damage to the mawile group.
"I don't suppose either of you guys have any more fire or ground types then?"

"Errrr, no." came the reply from Akito. "That battle with Flannery took out all of Vulcan's energy. He can't fight anything till he reaches the Pokemon Centre in Mawile."

"Duke is worn out too..." Dava said, eyes wide open from fear of the dark mouths in front of them.

All of a sudden, a Mawile leaped at Hercules and swept it's giant jaws over the ground. Hercules jumped and managed to avoid it but it was extremely close.

"Hercules, Bullet Seed!" came the order from Akito. The Mawile kept on getting pelted by a barrage of hard green seeds from Hercules but Akito knew this wasn't doing much damage. There were two other Mawile there and they would soon try to attack Hercules. 'I need to get Guts activated.' thought Akito.

Akito then saw a few more Mawile emerge. Akito muttered something under his breath.

Dava had backed away from the others, absent-mindedly picking up Prince's pokéball in her hand. Behind her back was the exit. Light. It had to be the way out. But the new Mawile bunch were blocking the path. They couldn't make a run for it. A sudden thought to call out loudly for Flannery struck Dava.

But before she had time to realize that idea, one of the Mawile behind her snapped at Hercules and caught his arm in its gap, causing Akito and Aya to call out. Spinning around, Dava didn't see the Mawile in front of her readying another attack. Together. But all of a sudden, they felt it.

The cave became an inferno of rushing sand and wind; a Sandstorm had been brewed. On Dava's mind was only one, stupid thing. People can get stupid from shock.

I'm getting dirty again! No!

She ran blindly, arms crossed in front of her face, for several minutes and not stopping until she stumbled and fell over. Slowly, she realized that the Sandstorm had ended. Opening her eyes, dusting away the sandy residues from her face, it became clear that it was rather the fact that she wasn't where the Sandstorm was anymore. She was outdoors, the blue sky above her head and the rocky mountain around her. She didn't even see the opening of the cave behind her. Had she run that far, or fallen from so high? Shock, it could make people stupid. Her cheeks suddenly burned red. What had happened to Aya and Akito?

Various parts and projects in beginning stages of creation


After crawling around for several minutes Hark muttered, “Stop… let’s take a break.” They were in a slightly larger room than they had been crawling in most of the time. This allowed Hark enough room to sit up and rest. Lannia climbed up some rocks to tend to Hark’s wound, but as she tried to touch the wound Hark pulled away. Lannia was confused and tried to communicate with Hark, but was only able to touch his mind with her powers. However she couldn’t transmit any thoughts or words. “No, Lannia… stop it,” said Hark with an angry voice. Lannia took a step back wondering what she had done wrong. “I hate this weakness! Why are humans so pathetic? Why does the rest of humanity feel fine with being so weak? Our weak bodies can’t take a tenth the punishment that the smallest of your kind can take. Seeing you take more punishment and still you can press on with no trouble once I spray a chemical on you just makes me hate your kind for showing me how pathetic I am… I hate being so pathetic,” stated Hark with anger filling his voice.

Lannia was a little shocked by his sudden confession. She understood his frustration as she struggled with being a weaker than normal Ralts, but the amount of hate it caused was startling to her. She wasn’t sure how to react, but she wanted to do something. Crawling down the rocks she walked over to him then threw her arms around Hark’s waist the best she could. Hark didn’t respond to her touch physically, but she felt his emotions shift some. “I’ll become better… even if it means sacrificing my humanity to do it,” muttered Hark he then went back into a crawling position. “Let’s go,” Hark said to Lannia, who was confused by his last words. She started to lead him around again. It wasn’t long before Lannia realized they were lost, but she continued to lead Hark around randomly for several hours.

Frustrated and disheartened Lannia just stopped and looked around in the darkness hopelessly. She was able to use her abilities to “see” enough to not run into anything but she couldn’t tell where she was going. Feeling Hark getting uneasy, Lannia just randomly started down another path. A few minutes later she heard another Pokemon saying, “You’re lost… if you want I can help you out.” Lannia looked around with her abilities but couldn’t figure out where the Pokemon was. “Just follow me,” it said and Lannia finally figured out where it was so she could follow the Pokemon just as it began to walk away.

“Why are you helping us?” asked Lannia as she followed the unknown Pokemon. Just then Lannia’s footing gave way and she fell into a hole where she landed on her back with a yelp of pain.

“Lannia where are you?” asked Hark’s voice from above. However before Lannia could respond the other Pokemon was standing over her. It had almost dress like look to its legs much like her and was small in stature. Its head had two tuffs of hair and something massive thing growing out of its head.

“Because I’m hungry,” said the other Pokemon as the thing opened to reveal a large jaw. Lannia’s pulse quickened and she frantically summoned up some psychic energy to protect herself from the quickly closing in jaws. However just as the jaws began to close around her they suddenly stopped and the Pokemon started to laugh uncomfortably. “You should have seen the look on your face,” it said as it withdrew the jaw trying to make its attack seem like a terrible prank. It then offered its little hand to Lannia to help her up. Lannia took the hand but the Pokemon suddenly let go suddenly causing Lannia to fall back down. “Got you again,” said the Pokemon with a weak teasing smile.

Lannia stood up with Psychic energy fueled by anger surrounding her. The pokemon’s smile faded and it stepped back as it said, “I was just joking with you… Don’t take it seriously … I’m sorry.”

Lannia responded, “I don’t think you were joking… you were going to eat me but when I showed I was not going to be such easy prey you changed your mind and tried to play it off as a joke.” She stepped toward the pokemon, and right before she blasted it with a powerful psychic blast she stopped. She could feel its emotions, and she realized what she assumed wasn’t completely true.

The Pokemon was guarding itself with its jaw as it shook in fear and said quickly, “No, I couldn’t do it… I couldn’t eat you it was just wrong. I’m starving but I couldn’t eat you. It didn’t feel right. I gave you mercy please show me mercy in return.”

Lannia knew the Pokemon was speaking the truth. It didn’t stop because it feared the Psychic Pokemon, it stopped because it couldn’t bring itself to kill Lannia like that. Lannia could feel the Pokemon’s desperation and weakness. It was starving and it had tricked her to be its much needed meal, but it couldn’t eat her. Despite starving almost to the point of death, it couldn’t kill the Ralts. Pity filled Lannia’s heart for the dying Pokemon and she said, “My master has food… I can get you a little now and if you help us out of here I can give you more.”
The pokemon looked at the Ralts and hope filled its eyes as it nodded its head. The Pokemon then led Lannia back up to Hark who was trying to reach down the hole to get Lannia without much luck. Walking up to her master Lannia said a few words in her language to make him relax. With a little effort, Lannia got Hark to take off his pack so she could get out a few of his rations. Handing them to the Pokemon it quickly gobbled the food down then with a real smile offered to show them the way.

An hour later the three were standing in the mouth of the cave leading out into the fresh air. “Good job Lannia,” said Hark as he let out a sigh of relief as he looked around. Lannia looked over their guide who she could clearly see now. It was an unhealthy skinny female Mawile that looked uncomfortable with being out in the light.

The Mawile looked to Lannia and said, “The rest of the food please… I don’t like being out in the open like this.”

Lannia once again pulled on Hark’s backpack strap to get him to lower the bag. Lannia then went digging into the back pack, while Hark glanced at the Mawile, who was staring at him carefully. Lannia then found something else that made her think. Sighing, she closed her eyes and wondered if she was doing the right thing. She turned around and handed the Mawile an energy bar that the Mawile hungrily gobbled down and then handed her another object pretending it was food. Lannia was correct in assuming this Mawile had little exposure to humans as she took the Pokeball and started to take a bite out of it. The ball suddenly grew in size and popped open before the Mawile could realize it had been tricked. There was a flash of light and the sounds of Hark, who had been looking at something outside the cave when Lannia tricked the Mawile, saying, “what the ****?”

Lannia hoped she had made the right choice as the ball shook. The Mawile looked like it was barely surviving, and perhaps by capturing it with Harks would give her a better life. Yes, Hark was not the greatest of masters, but being his Pokemon had to be better than starving to death. Also having someone else around to help deal with Hark sometimes might be nice…

Chapter 2.5- Akito Sasaki



Akito's Team
Spoiler:
Hercules (Guts) - Tackle, Protect, Bullet Seed
Vulcan (Oblivious) - Ember, Magnitude, Tackle, Growl
Akito tripped and fell flat on the ground. The pain kept on shooting up to the other part of the body. He wasn't sure whether he had to get a vaccine for a Mawile bite or whether he would be fine after some medicine. Either way, he had to get to Mauville City or he would find himself right in the middle of an operation in some city. That was if he was lucky. Otherwise, if he was unlucky then……

The taste of dirt bought Akito back to his senses. Dirt in truth, tasted a bit like some of those foods that they fed you when you were sick. Bitter and tasteless that is. Akito hated that kind of food and spat the dirt out. The soil was quite good for growing crops. For millions of years, creatures had lived and died on that soil. At the thought of this, our little hero almost spilled the contents of his stomach.

Hercules, the faithful stag beetle on the other hand, was busy trying to shake his master into consciousness. His master however, just groaned and muttered something about Flannery being cruel to Vulcan. Hercules was no healer pokemon but he knew that the sweltering heat and rocky surface was no good for his master. Come to think of it, Akito kept on moving his legs restlessly and scraping the wound against the ground.

~ ~ ~

Bruce Atkinson had been enjoying his nice lovely walk. The handsome young man, with his blonde hair and lightly tanned complexion was obviously extremely fit. He loved this trail even though it was quite far from Mauville City. It was so peaceful and different from the bustling metropolis that was Mauville. Sure Mauville wasn’t the biggest city in Hoenn but it was definitely one of the busiest. The constant stress of work was so much that every week without fail he would take leave from work.

Bruce smirked when he thought of work. His boss was an unmarried woman who seemed to like him a lot. Whenever, he asked for leave she always consented. That however, didn’t mean that he was a slacker. He was potentially the best worker in his office. He always worked hard and well. A few days leave were necessary for him. Bruce looked up. What he saw was a steep mountain. It took some effort to climb but it was enjoyable. He then narrowed his eyes. There was something blue, maybe a Heracross crouching over somebody lying crumpled on the ground. Bruce began running up the hill at breakneck speed. He was on leave, but he should do everything he could for an injured person.

~ ~ ~


Akito stared at the wooden ceiling above him. It was sometime around afternoon. He had been lucky that Bruce had found him and taken him to the wooden lodge that was located somewhere down the mountain. Bruce had then treated him with some kind of medicine that had eased his pain a bit. Well not actually a bit. It had eased his pain so now he had no trouble walking.

Bruce was a doctor. He was 25 and was 7 years older than Akito. Akito and Bruce had grown up in Rustboro City. Bruce was a big bully when they were small and Akito never quite liked him. Bruce had left to study medicine at around the same time as Akito had left to go training with Chuck. Akito and Bruce still kept in touch but were not that good friends.


Akito had never quite liked Bruce. When they were small, Bruce was a huge bul and even now he wasn’t very different. Akito was good-looking but Bruce was ridiculously handsome. That guy was always flirting with any women he came across and due to his strange habit if being a prankster, tricking Akito.

Akito then stopped criticizing Bruce in his mind. Whatever happened, Bruce had saved Akito’s life. He should have been thankful for that. As if drawn to Aito’s thoughts, Bruce suddenly came in.


“Fine, Aki dude?” he asked mockingly while pouring himself a glass of water.

“Stop calling me that.” Akito spat back. “But I’m fine… Thanks for the …. h-elp”

“Geez man, you should really calm down.” Bruce replied. “Anyway, one good deed deserves another. I see that you can walk just fine. Now would you mind to battle me? Don’t worry I’ll use my weakest pokemon.”

“Grrr. Okay I’ll battle you.” came the reply.

“Perfect.” They then headed outside. The lawn was perfect for them to have their match. The grass was short and the ground was earthy.

“Ready?” Bruce asked.

“Never better.” replied Akito. Akito sent out Vulcan his Numel, while Bruce sent out Ares the Pancham.

Dava Lalonde 2.6


Team
Spoiler:
Prince (Elekid)
Static
Quick Attack | Thundershock | Flash | Low Kick

Duke (Geodude)
Rock Head
Tackle | Rollout | Rock Throw | Magnitude


Deciding that Aya and Akito were probably capable enough to not be worth worrying for, Dava brushed what sand she could off her poor clothes (really, it had been unnecessary to change them this morning!) and started walking south. Mount Chimney was really bigger than you thought, and she now realized that Jagged Pass and Lavaridge were actually seated on a pretty high altitude. The route she was aiming for now was further down, closer to the sea level. Which meant the way down the mountain here would take longer than the Jagged Pass trek had done. Unless that cave where they met Flannery had actually been cutting their way short by at least a bit.

After a little while, Dava stopped to eat and nurse Duke a bit. He was still a bit shaken and injured from the heavy fire taken against the E4 person. Really, such a bad idea to battle a person like that when you are a rookie trainer. Prince watched them as Dava sat with Duke in front of her, polishing his rocky skin carefully with a towel. Duke didn't seem to mind, but the Elekid rolled his eyes at them. Sissies. He had seen Dava take care of Princess before, her old Mareep. Who was now with his real trainer, Dani. Prince wondered when he would see her again...

Prince had zoned off, standing on a cliff next to his traveling partners. Suddenly he came back into the physical world, noticing that someone was standing beneath the cliff, watching him with suspicious eyes. A pokémon. A fire type. He jumped up and fired a Thundershock in the pokémon's direction from instinct. It wasn't even a hit; the other pokémon seemed fast and jumped away maybe only feeling a little tickle from the attack.

"Prince, what are you up to now?" Dava's voice came. She stood up and walked over to the electric pokémon, Duke hovering up behind her.

Then she saw the newcomer. About Prince's height, but red with some kind of bulbs on its head and a pouting mouth. "A Magby!" she exclaimed. They were pretty rare, but also pretty cute in a way. Dava looked from Magby to Duke to Prince. Duke would do well in a battle against it, but he was still weak. So it would have to be Prince.

"I will capture you," the girl said with an excited smile towards the fire type, who raised an eyebrow.

Prince raised both of his. But then sighed and turned back towards Magby, ready to engage. As he watched his soon to be opponent a bit more closely, something suddenly struck him. This pokémon was a female.

Carl Bizarro
Chapter 2.4
Blackout!


Carl's Team
Spoiler:
Sting (Shield Dust) - Poison Sting, String Shot, Electro Web

Carl slowly regained consciousness. He was still in pain after the fall and his eyes were still closed. He weakly moved his arms to try to reach Sting's Pokéball, and sighed in relief when he felt the small, round object apparently intact. Whew... Thank Arceus for that... he thought. He attempted to move his legs, but to no avail, as a sharp wave of pain stopped him right there. "AGH! FELICITY! HELP!" he screamed at the top of his lungs, but no response was heard. He opened his eyes slowly, and to his surprise it was very dark and he could see nothing. "F-Felicity? Hello? Anyone?" he weakly asked and tried to sit up before another wave of pain pinned him to the rocky, uncomfortable ground. "Help... me..." he mumbled. This time, he could hear a response. Something was crawling in his direction quite quickly, and Carl gulped down, frightened. "Wh-Who's there?"

"Kehehe!"

Then, Carl heard a thump. Whatever was crawling towards him had either hopped off or fallen. Any way, it began to creep closer to the nerdy boy, who tried to move backwards instantly to no avail, as the pain he was in was too strong. "G-Go away!" he said, "P-Please, leave me alone!" He could see two bright diamond-like objects floating as if they were eyes that were staring at him. Those things look like something's eyes! he thought, gulping down, Wait a second... They ARE eyes! There was a Pokémon with gem-like eyes! What was his name? The eyes were getting even closer. That's it! It was Sa-

"SAAAABLEEEYEEE!" the creature cried and leaped over to Carl's side. A mischievous grin on his face, Carl was waiting for it to pull a nasty trick on him, however, it just stood there, staring and smiling at him in a very creepy way. "H-Hello, Sableye! I-I'm Carl... And I'm v-very badly hurt!" he said in a shaky voice. "C-Could you please h-help me out?" The Sableye said nothing, and scanned Carl's body with his eyes. Then, he giggled and grabbed the Pokéball that contained Sting. "W-Wait, that's mine! Give it back!" he said, but the Sableye snickered and began to make a run for it. With the little strength that he had left in his body, Carl managed to grab a rock and hurl it at the evil wild Pokémon, making it trip over and let go of the Pokéball it had stolen. The Pokéball opened upon impact, and Sting came out of it.

"Grrrr.... SASASABLEYE!" the wild Pokémon cursed, and leered at Sting. Well, I believe it's time for another battle! I can't see anything, because it's so dark, but I think I can see the shadows of both Sableye and Sting... he thought, Well, here goes...

"Sting, Electroweb!"

At the same time, the wild Sableye charged at Weedle with a Scratch attack. After being hit, the Ghost-type was covered by an electrified web, that made it cry out in pain and attempt to get it off with Fury Swipes. "Sting, Poison Sting!" he said, "Then, attack with Electroweb!" This appeared to be a quite heated battle for Carl Bizarro. I can do it... This time, I can win!

Hark Rense - Chapter 2 - Part 7 Zubats... again
Team
Spoiler:

Lannia The Ralts
Trace
Calm Mind, Confusion, Magical Leaf, Lucky Chant

Nara the Mawile
Sheer Force
Bite, Fake Tears


Gadgets
Spoiler:

Mechanical Left Arm
Upgrades:
-Retractable Double Edged Blade

Sunglasses with Integrated HUD - Linked with his Pokedex, functional now
Tool Kit

Various parts and projects in beginning stages of creation

Lannia and Hark watched the pokeball shake twice then just stop. It sat there for several seconds completely still before locking. The Mawile didn’t fight to escape like most wild Pokemon would, but instead she had just given into her fate. A split second later the HUD on Hark’s sunglasses lit up with information on his new Pokemon. As an excited sounding female electronic voice in Hark’s ear explained some trivial details about his new Pokemon, Hark stared at the ball then at Lannia. “Please tell me you didn’t do that on purpose,” moaned Hark as he looked at Lannia. The Ralts nervously nodded with a forced smile. “Great now my Pokemon is capturing Pokemon for me.... Lannia you are strange,” said Hark shaking his head with a frown.

Suddenly the Pokedex asked Hark verbally, “Do you want to give your Mawile a name?” Harked sighed and picked up the Pokeball and pressed the button releasing a bewildered and slightly depressed looking Mawile. Staring at her for a few seconds a name materialized in his head and he pulled out the broken Pokedex and used the integrated keyboard to type in the Mawile’s new name. Looking at the Pokemon he said, “Nara.” The Mawile didn’t give him much of a response as she was staring at her capturer, Lannia. A part of Hark wanted to release the Pokemon just so people didn’t get the wrong idea, but she could prove useful. A second Pokemon did mean a little bit more protection, which couldn’t hurt at this point as it was clear he was much weaker than he had initially estimated.
After being released Nara was silent for a few seconds as the reality of her new situation sunk in. Looking over at Lannia she asked in a lifeless voice, “Why did you enslave me?”

Lannia was shocked by this question but was still was able to formulate a response, “You’re not enslaved… you’re just Hark’s Pokemon now, and I did it because then I… we could help take care of you and you wouldn’t have to starve to death.”

“That is what my mother called it… told us humans forced us into little prisons and made us slaves… that is why we lived deep in the volcano to stay away from humans. She said if we ever interacted with a human and their slaves we would either be beaten terribly for their amusement or worse: enslaved so we could be forced to beat up others,” muttered the Mawile. She then looked up at Hark and said, “I may be starving but at least I’m not being beat up to the point of passing out every day… I’m not a good fighter… and I don’t want to harm others, especially for his amusement.”

The depression and defeat in the Mawile’s voice made Lannia feel horrible for what she did. “I’m sorry… I just thought… I wanted to help,” she muttered as he stared at the ground taking in the viewpoint of this once wild Pokemon. Lannia had grown up in captivity and had been fed the ideas of human/pokemon friendship all her life. Nara’s view on the matter was so different, and it basically turned her world upside down. Looking up at Hark her mind processed the events of the last two days. Looking at the Mawile once again she muttered, “Hark is not a trainer… his goals do not include becoming a champion or anything like that. He is different. He wants us to help protect him… not to going to lead to a very good life for Nara. If it did then what Lannia did wasn’t bad, and she shouldn’t feel guilty anymore.

“Let’s go… I don’t like caves anymore,” said Hark turning and quickly walking toward the brightly lit opening that was no less than 100 feet away. However just as the three were almost out of the cave, the air was filled with the sounds of flapping wings and the squeaking of Zubats. A second later four Zubats were circling over their heads preparing to attack. Hark responded to this event by saying, “You have GOT to joking. The exit is RIGHT THERE, stupid…” He continued by muttering some colorful words about Zubats under his breath. Lannia started to focus her powers as the Zubats circled around looking for an opening to attack from. Nara however took a different route and started running for a little crevice so she could hide from the Zubats.

Two of the Zubats swooped in on the Mawile, but she was able to slide into the small crevice with only her jaw showing. Lannia turned to help Nara, but when she did a Zubat swooped in to attack her from behind. However the Zubat didn’t know Hark was a fighter as well, and it paid the price as it suddenly felt a metal fist to the face. Thanks to Hark’s support Lannia was able to get to one of Nara’s attackers and hit it with a powerful burst of psychic energy sending the Zubat cart wheeling into the cave wall.

The remaining two decided that Lannia and Hark should be the ones they need to deal with since the Mawile was just cowering in a crack. Deciding to take down Lannia first, they swooped in from two directions forcing Lannia to only defend against one. Lannia hit one with a Psychic burst that sent it spiraling deep into the darkness of the cave, but the other bit into Lannia hard with its fangs. The Zubat began to bite into Lannia more opening a large gash on her shoulder. Before the screaming Lannia could defend herself, The Zubat became a shish-ka-bob on Hark’s blade. Lannia was fighting and Hark started digging for a healing potion in his bag while the two remaining Zubats were recovering. “Lannia I’m out of potions… just hold on until I can take care of these pests,” said Hark stepping over the wounded Ralts as the two wounded Zubats swooped down to finish off the Ralts. The closest Zubat got a boot to the head knocking it out, and the final one decided it was time to call it a day. With one last squeak it flew off into the darkness just as Lannia collapsed.

Picking up Lannia, Hark said, “Come on Nara we need to get out before more come.” He then left the cave in a rush, and Nara quickly ran after him after crawling out of her hiding spot. Once outside the cave Hark set down Lannia carefully and fetched a spare shirt and a first aid kit. Moving Lannia to the shirt he pulled out the first aid kit and rubbed some disinfectant on the wound causing the Ralts to squeak in pain. “I know this hurts but it will keep the wound from becoming infected,” said Hark. He then pulled out some bandages and put some pressure on Lannia’s wounds. After getting her bleeding to stop, Hark wrapped the wound. Lannia had lost a good amount of blood for her size so she was rather weak. Satisfied with his first aid job Hark stood up and then picked up Lannia. “We need to get you to a PokeCenter,” said Hark as he started to move in the direction he assumed was the correct one. Nara nervously followed right behind Hark wondering. This was the first time she had seen the world outside the caves of this mountain and to her it was frightening.
