    Yeah, I know you can't really do that. Then again, Bond has already done an jumped a car over a pit and opened train doors from the outside while the train is moving, so I figured he could do that. I mean, the man seems to generate action movie stunts simply by touching vehicles.

    To my eternal shame, I haven't actually read The Retelling of Pokémon Colosseum. I know I quoted it in my other story, but I did that by clicking random page numbers and searching for chapters with Miror B. in.

    There is an inspiration for old Queenie, though, and that's Queen Anne from Bastion. One of my all-time favourite bosses, in one of my all-time favourite game levels, set to one of my all-time favourite pieces of game music, in one of my all-time favourite games. Rest in peace, Queenie.

    Well, he could've done that, but I think someone might have noticed.

    I expect they do have them, but they aren't all that good. Sinnoh hasn't been involved in any warfare for quite some time - since its disastrous involvement in Korea, I think.

    Maybe there were. Unfortunately, Puck wasn't around to see them and make the joke.

    We shall. Assuming that it was a prediction about the Desk Sitter, Liza, the man in black or Ashley, that is. Anything else and it's kind of irrelevant by this point.

    Glugh. Yes and no, in that order.

    Tune in next time, for more fabulous showdowns and dazzling revelation!
