    Dear Friends, gather around, I will begin to tell you the tale that spawned the combat league. It began year's ago in the region of Orre, A city of lights and excitement, an atmosphere waiting for new blood to flow through it's veins to either suck dry or entertain and a place that few barely ever dared to even step foot in to explore; Ignea. At the time, Ignea was what it is now, a barren wasteland of dust and dirt with little fresh water for miles out of reach and scavengers of all kinds hunting for their prey to survive on. It was as harsh as Lethia is if not worse though the region attained it's strange properties from this place. It was to this region that a promise was made between the tribes of the pokemon and a promise that was broken... And through this tale, is my-... Our Story of Redemption.




    It is early in the morning at the crack of dawn in the Orre region. A bus is preparing to make a long trek to an unknown city outside of Orre, just beyond the mountain pass out west. The sun is slowly rising over the east horizon as the few folk looking to explore an see where the world takes them and blinding the few as they wait by the bus stop. The driver arrives, pulls the bus into port and steps off to get his cup of coffee as various folk from different walks of life begin to pick up their belongings and prepare their bus passes. The driver walks back out with a cup of coffee and an oversized thermos. He addresses the trainers preparing to board; "Alright, anyone with large luggage please leave it out here on the platform and we'll load it up in the storage under the bus and have your passes ready. This is a 8 hour drive through the Perdita Pass and things will get rough once we're half-way through. Any walkmans, pokedex's or other electric devices must be shut off while in transit for your safety. Please have your bus passes out and we'll make our way to Lux Bravio. Those who are participating in the contest, you will need to be patient until we reach our destination for further instructions." The driver boards the bus and the travelers begin to load their cargo.

    Anyone taking part; you are boarding a bus. You have a chance to interact and talk with other players onboard. Players seeking to take alternative routes, May do so. This setting is setup for characters to interact with one another before we're thrown into the thick of things.

      Among the passengers taking turns to enter the opening entrance, one particular girl could be seen fitting herself through the gap. Mostly identified by reddish overalls, Reanne made her way through the carpeted corridor and without hesitation, immediately claimed seat on the left side.

      The similar translucent view greeted her upon her gaze to the side she leaned upon. In comparison, the place she lived on weren't very green to begin with. Let alone the place, nary a tree caught by the eye just to show how barren this wasteland could be. What would become of Ignea by the time she arrived there? Was it going to be the worst place she really wanted to go? The expectation almost consumed her thought, but coming this far, she couldn't care less either way.

      "Eight hours, huh..." She stretched herself upward, sighing, "Sure is booooring... Maybe I'll doze off a bit..."

        Ignea. Seems like a barren wasteland with not much life and vegetation. This was quite jarring from his previous life at Hoenn. It's true that there should be people there but... it just does not feel the same, y'know?

        Nathaniel put his bag down. He stared at the view out of the bus windows. The sun is shining brightly, as if mocking those who dare walk underneath. It feels weird for him to say this, but he felt excited. Going to a new place has the weird effect on some people. Some disliked it, others look forward to it, often being called 'adventurous' peeps.

        The bus was a clean one, he was kinda glad of that. It reminded him of one incident when he had an argument with someone in a travelling bus over a spilled coke, which resulted in both of them having bruises. That was long ago, he hoped he won't meet that sort ruffian here...

        Finally he took a seat, while making observations on the people in the bus. He realized there was a girl with a red beret next to her, but he didn't mind that much.

        Damn this is cliche...

        The sound of a ballpoint pen striking parchment came to a close. Toru sat the pen down, followed by a quick glance to Espeon.

        "A running away from home letter just leaves a bad taste in my mouth, I guess..." he paused. "...but that's just the way she goes, right?"

        Nodding her head in agreement, the Pokemon stared at him as he began to pack his things. Once finished, tossing on a light denim jacket and sliding into his favorite pair of boots, Toru glanced around the room and let out a sigh. No turning back.

        Arriving at the bus station, a voice called out.

        Quote:
        "Alright, anyone with large luggage please leave it out here on the platform and we'll load it up in the storage under the bus and have your passes ready.

Those who are participating in the contest, you will need to be patient until we reach our destination for further instructions."
        "I hate to say it, but you're gonna have to ride this one out in your pokeball." Toru whispered to his companion. "Let's just play it safe for now, okay?"

        Espeon gave it's signature nod of approval as the pokeball opened and a red shimmering light drew her inside.

        Made it.

        Finding a seat towards the back of the bus Toru began twirling his finger around the jewelry hanging from his ears he watched as the other travelers took their seats. He slid his bag under the chair that would be comforting him during this 8 hour travel.

        Is some barren wilderness enticing enough to bring all these people here?

        I guess they all have something they're fighting for, huh?

        Mary Maple

        Moves




        Two young ladies who wouldn't look out of place in the city boarded the bus. You could almost see it immediately in the way they stopped in tandem and looked around, staying close to one another without really acknowledging how close the other was. They were traveling together. The brunette of the two with the longer hair surveyed the bus for a moment, observing everyone on it. Her eyes lit up and she turned to address the blonde next to her. "Look at all the other people here~! I bet they're trainers too!" Mary cheerily remarked, leaning over and slipping her hand into Rose's, which the other absent-mindedly took. She quickly lead Rose over to a pair of vacant seats and sat down next to Reanne, with Rose taking Mary's other side.

        "Hi~!" Mary greeted Reanne, apparently full of energy in spite of the heat and the cramped space. It probably helped that they were both wearing skirts, Rose's long and Mary's short, that looked rather cool in the warm weather. She had a very inviting look on her face, seemingly unfazed by the fact that they'd never met. "Wanna be bus buddies? I've got some Pokemon Cards if you wanna see!" she offered, shifting her purse into her lap. The collectible pokemon cards were a lot like baseball cards, but with pokemon! They were generally flattering photographs with little factoids all over them, not unlike cardboard pokedex entries, which was conveneint considering actual pokedexs weren't allowed.

        "Nnn... Don't bother people too much, Mary. They probably just want to nap." Rose softly reminded the other, attempting to curtail her excitement before someone took offense to it.

          Joseph Climbed the bus with his fanny pack hanging from behind as he drops his campers backpack on the Platform and his Lombre, Caboose, Carrying a cooler of food on it's head for the long trek through the mountain pass, Containing Pocky, Ramunae, grape soda, Potato chips and some other small snack stuffs to bring on board. He walks over to the counter, purchases his bus pass and climbs aboard, Caboose drops off the cooler under's his feet as he sit's back and looks at all of the lively trainers who boarded. He return's Caboose to it's poke'ball as the bus driver climbs aboard and start's his prep work as another pokemon comes on board, a Pidgeot with a large bag attached to it's back with a
          logo
          printed on it. "Oh?.... Alright Attention passenger's. We have a small business from Ignea bringing food in for the first leg of the trip before we push off." The Pidgeot pulls a slip of paper from a pocket on it's harness. "This pokemon is carrying Watermelon Tea, BBQ Puffs, Hearth Chili with Sweet Potato Fries, Northern Light Poffins, Ether Jerky and Attack of The Sandwich... Sandwiches; courtesy of the Edge and End Inn. The tea is free, though you will need to pay for the food at a 30% discount and visit the Inn at Fool's Garden for more food this pokemon couldn't carry, a warm bath and bed and evening entertainment.... Does that cover it?" The Pidgeot nods as it walks in the center lane of the bus. It's harness has several thermos's containing the tea dangling from it's body. It's back has a large Satchel with Velcro flaps with pockets it can open easily to retrieve food and other supplies and a small 'pay here' bag hanging in the front. It retrieves a small menu from it's beak and slowly goes through the passengers, offering up it's small goods before getting ready to make the long trek home.

          Joseph sit's back, a little puzzled a business owner would send a pokemon out from Ignea to do business, though he wasn't completely unsurprised. He pays for a sandwhich and a watermelon tea. The pokemon leaves the menu with him, pulls out a wrapped sandwhich and an empty plastic bottle, filling that bottle with the tea before hooking the thermos back to it's harness. "This...is impressive." He sit's back and wait's patiently for the driver to get his paperwork in place and check his gauges before shoving off.



          Blaze :: Good - Caboose :: Good - Static :: Good
          ::Chapter 1 - To Ignea!:: 25%

          Emmanuel "Manny" Chapman
          Clutching his stomach, Emmanuel stumbled out of the bathroom stall with a groan. Perhaps it hadn’t been the best idea to buy some food from a wandering vendor off the side of the road, but he couldn’t help himself with his stomach grumbling the way it had back then. At the sink’s mirror, Emmanuel gave himself a brief look over. “I look awful,” he told himself through a crooked smile, and made sure to give his hands and face a thorough wash. Upon exiting the restroom, Manny found a large camping bag thrust into chest.

          “Was is that bad? You took off right after you parked the bike.” His older brother, Tyson, teased.

          “Yeah, it was real bad,” Manny replied with an exhaled exaggeration, slipping the bag onto his back. “What’s that?” The young man continued, gesturing to the slender piece of paper his brother was waving in his face.

          “Your boarding pass, I took care of it when you left all your junk in the sidecar with me.”

          “Oh, thanks.”

          The two men spent the rest of the walk to the boarding platform in an apparent silence, neither knowing what much to say at Emmanuel’s departure. It was only until Emmanuel began to take a sip of water from his canteen, that his brother decided to speak up. “We’re all going to miss you, you know. Well maybe except for Ollie, but he’s an ass,” he said with a chuckle.

          “I know, we’ve talked about it before.” Emmanuel replied, trying to clumsily divert the conversation, and in a way, trying to extinguish any of the lingering thoughts of doubt he had left.

          Tyson nodded in response. “You’re right, we have,” and then he paused. “You know, I’m pretty proud of you man.”

          “Proud of what?” It was an unexpected comment, one that stopped Emmanuel right in his tracks as he turned towards his brother, who was looking him right in the eyes.

          “Just… you know, choosing to do something like this. It takes a lot of courage, a lot of guts, bro. Compared to what you were getting involved with before, I’m just… all of us are just happy to see you doing well, Manny.”

          Those words stumped him, they really did. He felt the smile breaking out on his face and he knew he could do nothing to stop it. “You’re a dumbass,” he relented, letting the grin breakout in full. The brothers embraced for a moment before Manny continued. “I haven’t done anything, so save the ‘proud of me’ spiel for when I get back, yeah?”

          “I lay all that out and that’s the ♥♥♥♥ you say to me.” Tyson laughed, “Yea, yea, whatever, just be safe and make sure you do get back.”

          Emmanuel nodded, his attention turning towards the bus, seemingly close to departing. He turned back to his brother, his hands digging in his pockets. “Did I give you the keys to the bike already?”

          “I took ‘em out of the ignition. You left them there when you took off for the bathroom.” With those words, the brothers took to truly and finally exchanging goodbyes, and when Emmanuel made his way onto the bus’s aisle, purchased a delicious looking sandwich to tide over his now empty stomach, and sat down in a nearby empty seat, he felt a soothing wave of relief wash over him.

            The growing intensity of people boarding the bus made the place quite lively, and loud. Loud enough to drag Reanne back into reality, curiosity opening her eyes to see what disturbed her slumber.

            "Wha... Am I there yet? But it's only been minutes... did the driver lie to me?" She rubbed her eyes and glanced about, seeing other people she has never met flocking near her. Eyeing her right side, it appeared that the seat was occupied by somebody tall. His face looked young, yet his hair is whitish in color. She couldn't help but ponder how old is he, but something else has also caught her utmost attention -- the brunette girl who sat next to her with a brighter appearance. The way she faced her with pictures depicting creatures she never seen before, it must be apparent that she was referring to her just now. The reason behind to it wasn't important, besides, a chipper individual that didn't hesitate opening up with strangers sounded like a great start to get knowing with each other, even if it was uncertain for how long.

            "Ah, sorry for mumbling off just now." Reanne leaned her back comfortably on the seat, arms crossed, "And what do I say to your offer? A sure thing! I'd be really glad to. Trips like these can get very dull, so entertainments of any sort will be greatly appreciated!" She tilted and winked an eye, "I'm Reanne, a Pokémon Trainer. Say, who might you be and where are you headed?" Then, she looked at the man beside him, "And hello there, old man. Can you tell me your secret to having a smooth skin like yours?"

              Nathaniel was getting tired, his eyes was closing off since he kinda need plenty of rest for whatever challenges are to come soon...

              "Hello there, old man. Can you tell me your secret to having a smooth skin like yours?"

              He woke up with a jolt and realized it was the red beret girl that called him an 'old man'. He felt a bit insulted, but well... there's all sorts of people out there anyway.

              "I'm not an old man," he glared while talking. "I'm still in my 20's, you know. And what's the deal about my skin anyway?"

              He figured he could at least get some small talk to kill off the boredom anyway.

              Rose had to do a double take as she listened to Reanne innocently mouthed off to an older man that happened to be nearby. ...Huh. It was at that moment that she had an epiphany. This girl would get along with Mary juuust fine. And to Rose's expectations, Mary couldn't help herself. She snickered at Reanne's mannerisms, seeming to appreciate their showmanship. "My name's Mary Maple, and this is my sister Rose~!" Mary introduced as she fished out a pack of cards from her purse. "We're pokemon trainers too, from all the way over in Unova. We're traveling to Ignea in search of adventure and new experiences." Rose added, deciding to join in on the conversation. Mary splayed the cards out for Reanne to see, flashing a playfully knowing look up at Nathaniel without really acknowledging what was going on. Far be it from her to call the elderly old.

              There were five cards on display. A minccino, a snivy, a rufflet, a vanilluxe and a holographic victini. "This one's my favorite~" Mary added, gesturing to the victini. It almost seemed to move slightly and sparkle when viewed from different angles. "I thought the rufflet was your favorite." Rose absent-mindedly remarked as she purchased two plates of sweet potato fries and some northern lights poffins for the two of them to share to go with their tea. "They're all my favorites~!" Mary light-heartedly replied.

              Finally settling in for the road ahead, an announcement rang through the cabin.
              Quote:
              "...Attention passenger's. We have a small business from Ignea bringing food in for the first leg of the trip before we push off."
              A rather large Pidgeot covered in several pouches climbed onto the bus and began making it's way down the aisle. It began filling cups and fulfilling orders with ease as the passengers began to stuff their money into a small pouch hanging from the bird's neck. Toru was fascinated.

              ...uhh.

              Finishing up with the passengers in front of him, the Pokemon pulled out a menu and handed it to Toru. "Just the tea for now." Replying quickly as he continued to skim through the menu.

              I should probably save what I have for now. Good thing I fueled up on the way here...

              The Pidgeot popped open the thermos attached to it's vest and filled a small plastic bottle before turning it over to Toru and continuing on it's rounds.

              This is... different...

              Slowly sipping his tea, he couldn't help but notice a group of passengers a few seats in front of him. There was a trio of young women in one row with a lone gentleman that looked to be a bit older than the rest. The interactions looked to be of a friendly nature.

              They seem so care-free despite where we're heading... I guess it's probably a good time to make friends when you're heading into the unknown.

              Meh.


              Toru slid back into his seat and waited for the bus to take off.

                A while after the announcements, their talk seemed to have taken slight attention of those around them. Almost as if the spotlight were directed toward those who were particularly loud and enthused, not counting it happened just before they even got to embark abroad.

                Regardless, the conversation carried on. Of apparent similar origins, the two girls, Mary and Rose, took their turn to introduce themselves after she told hers. "Sounds like I smell a coincidence. I too, also came from Unova." She smiled, "I can see it very clearly, the dedication and synergy in both of you. Just imagining a battle against formidable Trainers like you would send shivers to the unprepared! Man, if only I had a sibling too."

                As Mary displayed her collection of Pokémon cards, having seen them frequently, Reanne felt that she could name them all short to the last one. "Now, let's see what you have there! That's Mincinno, Snivy, Rufflet, Vanilluxe, and...hey, I don't think I've ever seen this Pokémon before." She said with a curious look, "It does look cute, though. I bet it likes something like sweets."

                Then, Reanne steered slightly to the white-haired man, "And nuh-uh, I feel that you're not telling the truth." Nudging her elbow with his, she continued, "But hey, there's no reason to shy away now. Now that we've been involved, why don't you start by telling your name?"

                  "Huh... at least we get free food for this trip. Would be nice to stock up since I hear the journey would be a gruelling and merciless one."

                  Nathaniel turned back to Reanne.

                  "Puh-lease, you can't judge a book by its cover. But hey, you can imagine how old I am anyway if you refuse to take my words as the truth."

                  "Name's Nathaniel. Nathan is also fine, whatever floats your boat. I take it you must be from somewhere far from this region too. I'm guessing you're Reanne since I overheard you conversing with those ladies over there."

                  Nathaniel was intrigued by the card collection and decided to take a closer look.

                    James Hendricks
                    Orre Region



                    James stretches his arms out as high as he can, then brings them back down to his sides. He was preparing for a long bus ride, and was taking his last chance at being comfortable for the near future. James heard the announcement from the PA, and following suit with other travellers, he powered off his PokeNav. James grabbed his boarding pass out of the front pocket of his backpack, and clutched it in his left hand.

                    James walked towards the back of the line for the bus, and couldn't help but notice the average age must have been at least a decade younger than him. Damn, I'm old, James thought to himself, taking his ball cap off and looking into the bus window, checking for gray hairs in the reflection. It was true that this in theory would give James the advantage of experience, but his experience of the past few years has been cooped up in the Goldenrod City Gym.

                    James handed his pass to the driver, who checked it and handed it back to James. James eyed a spot at the back of the bus, and made his way there, slipping past fellow travellers preparing themselves for the trip ahead. James got to the back row, turned to his left and sat down in the window seat. James grabbed a book about knot tying from his backpack, and placed the backpack under his seat. James then took off his jacket, and stowed the neatly folded leather jacket on top of his backpack. James stretched out his legs as far as he could, and sat his book on his lap.

                    He noticed a Pidgeot carrying food and beverages available for sale, and dug out some change from his wallet. The Pidgeot made its way to James, and James purchased a pack of Ether Jerky and the free watermelon tea. James threw the jerky into a pocket of his backpack, and put the tea into his cup holder.

                      The Pidgeot trots it's way to the front, turns about and bows before humbly stepping off of the bus and taking off towards the mountain. "Alright passenger's if that's everyone, We are now heading to Ignea." The bus starts and the engine roar's. The last of the luggage loaded into the expanded compartment and the bus rolls out over the the plains and reaches a familiar mountain formation. Traveling through the roads and through a few tunnels as the familiar gray and brown slowly shift the black and deep dark colors of Teal and Wine. The sky above was growing darker as noon was rolling around and static discharge was visible above, passing between the peaks. The shock of each discharge bring the hair of it's passenger's on end and the shock's echo off of the walls of the pass as the bus driver re-iterates the policy on electronics. "...Driver? What in the world is... Where are we?" "Perdita Pass; We are now in Ignea and still have a 5 hour drive ahead of us. Unless you want shock and kill everyone on board, keep electronics put up. We lost a small bus of travelers a few month's ago. Boom box blasting off heavy music, energy from the batteries started attracting the discharge..... Next thing we know, the bus is gone.... Working theory is it was vaporized, the next convoy of traveler's found a Boom Box charred and it's battery compartment melted by heat. We never saw those folks since then." The bus rolls along and the dark sky barely clears as the go through the next tunnel.

                      Joseph watches the cliffs as static discharges, finishing his tea before breaking into his snacks.

                      Moves




                      Rose furrowed her brows for a moment, giving Reanna a searching look. Ma'm, did you just smell probability?? Mary joined in, giving Reanna a shrewd look betrayed only by the goofy smile on her face. "...Are you tryin'a butter us up, Reanne?" she asked in an accusing manner, pausing a moment to playfully feign staring into the other's soul. " . . . Cause you're doing a really good job~! Wanna split some sweet potato fries?" Mary relented after the moment passed, dropping the act and holding out her order of sweet potato fries in offering. Nearby, Rose lolled her head in confusion. She on the other hand actually was looking into Reanne's soul. The problem was, she... really didn't recognize anything she was looking for! It was different, different from all of the others aboard the bus, but not in a way that meant anything to her. She'd need to keep an eye on Reanne and get to know her better before she actually understood what it was she was seeing with her mind's eye. ...Sometimes she felt her mind's eye was blinder than her normal eyes. "Careful what you wish for. She might try and adopt you." Rose playfully remarked in a rather dry tone. "...I can do that?" Mary replied after a moment's hesitation. "Nnn--" Rose began to correct, only to think better of it. Yeah, she better not go there. She shrugged helplessly instead, downplaying the idea. "The meaning isn't really in the word. Blood is thicker than water, and all that."

                      "...Right! Sisterhood comes from the heart!" Mary replied, drawing a stunned silence from Rose as she flashed her actual sister a thumbs up. ...Damn it, Mary. She returned her gaze to Reanne, throwing up an arm in the Rosie the Riveter pose. "We can be sisters-in-arms~!" she offered with a wink, extending her elbow a bit as if to offer to link arms with Reanne.

                      Rose found herself gravitating to her food--and the window. She'd definitely thought it odd that no electronics were allowed during their trip, but now that she heard the driver's story she abruptly understood why. "...Well I'm not going to be able to get any rest until we get past this weather." Rose dryly lamented. Hey y'know what? Being fried sounded awful. Maybe they could put that off for another day and nobody could do anything reckless. "The color of those mountains are really pretty though. I wonder what they're made of."

                      Looping his finger through, Toru pulls the band holding his hair up and lets his hair fall.

                      Hmm... maybe I should have chopped some of this off before I came here.

                      Resting his head in his palm for a moment. Beginning to feel a tad restless, he reached down to pull up his bag from underneath the seat. The sound of a thunderous roar echoed throughout the bus as the driver came over the PA, re-iterating his statement from before about keeping electronics turned off. After bringing out his journal and a simple black colored pen from his bag, Toru's eyes turned to the window next to him. His eyes widened a bit and traced the electricity and dark, bellowing clouds that were above them.

                      An ominous start to a journey, ehh?

                      Toru chuckled a bit to himself tracing his finger over the spine of his book. Opening it by the thin leather piece of string holding it together he began to write.

                        Some people would have felt anxious by Mary's response, if not for her playful demeanor making a false giveaway. Reanne herself still found herself smiling, she couldn't really guess what was up with Mary's sudden solemn tone, but neither did she could turn the offer for free food! While Mary's face was directed at Rose, her eyes sparkled with joy, less hesitating in stretching out her hand to grab half of them for her to gobble alone.

                        Delicious...it's just as good as a morning's toast... she thought to herself, still chewing the fries, ...But if I have to compare, bread is the winner. Bread is on its own superior tier. They are made by flour, then kneaded with love... Round and round they make a ball... Oh no, I accidently dipped it into a tea... It became bad real quick... So very quick that Mother Nature had a stomachache...

                        Having lost in thoughts, Reanne paused for a bit when given another offer, to form a knot of bond between the two carefree Trainers. Though faint, the thunderous discharge coming from above quickly brought her back to her senses, glancing around with confusedly, taking her a while to notice Mary's inviting gesture of friendship. "What? But I can't arm wrestle with... some...body as nice as... ... ...snore..."

                        Much to her mistaken interpretation, with head hung low and eyes closed, Reanne had already fallen asleep. She has yet to give her answer clearly, soon crumbling bits by bits as time went by. It's most probable that she must have forgotten the next time she made her wake. Regardless, with the bus progressively making its way onward, their eventual arrival to the promised lands of Ignea came closer than ever.

                          James Hendricks
                          Bus To Ignea



                          James shook his head rapidly for a couple of seconds as he woke up on the bus. James rubbed his eyes quickly and looked out the window. It looked as if they were in a mountain pass, but not one like James had ever seen before. Large rock faces coloured teal and wine were to each side of the bus, he had never heard of anything like it. James looked up at the dark sky above, and checked his watch. It was shortly after noon, much too early for black sky anywhere he had been before.

                          He heard electric discharges going off above him, and remembered what he had heard about shutting off devices, good thing I did, James thought to himself, as he was inclined to believe that in most situations those were advisories not warnings. But he couldn't help but wonder about the bus' onboard electronics, not to mention the alternator under the hood spinning at engine speed. The thought was a little unsettling, but it looked like he had no choice. James sighed, picked his book back up, and tried to kill a little bit more time.

                            As the bus rolls through the trenches if darkness towards the end of the tunnel. A pair or red eyes glare at the passing transport. I gives off a loud whistle that echoes through the tn♥el.



                            Joseph looked back at they left the tunnel. Thought the echoing whistle was strange and eerie. Several shadows along the cliff shift. The bus drones on as the static above seems to grow more intense and bolts of lightning begin to echo off the walls. The bus driver takes notice and starts to slow-down and begins to turn back. "Folks we're taking a bit of a det-" The tunnel in sight the discharge from above shocks the ground and the energy shocks and cracks "...oh Arcues...." the tunnel collapses and the discharge strikes the bus. "EVERYONE OUT!! GET OU-" A bolt of energy strikes through the bus driver, his body fading to a pitch black before vanishing into thin air. Joseph grabs his cooler, uses it to bust a window and hop out and pauses a moment. "COME ON! WE NEED TO GO!"

                            A few discharges start striking the bus as chunks of the bus begin to vanish, like bites from an invisible monster that couldn't barely even considered a pokemon and the discharge as it's fangs.

                              "W-What the heck?"

                              Chaos seemed to suddenly start out of nowhere. Nathaniel was a bit disoriented considering how idly peaceful it was earlier.

                              And then he saw the bus driver vaporized. Into nothing, but hot air.

                              As much a ruffian as Nathaniel was, witnessing death was still something entirely new to him. He stayed rooted to the spot, fear rushing through his veins, paranoia kicking into gear.

                              "COME ON! WE NEED TO GO!"

                              Joseph's words finally shook out Nathaniel from his frozen state. Perhaps it was adrenaline kicking in, or perhaps he just wanted to survive. He blinked and took a deep breath, and jumps out from the same window Joseph had busted earlier.

                              Moves




                              Mary lolled her head as Reanne fell asleep in front of her. ...Huh? What was--Did she just pass out? This poor baby must've been up all night or something. She couldn't help but smile, which was handy because she was about to run out of reasons to do that. It all happened so fast. The lightning that was making Rose anxious proved to be more than an irrational fear. Commands were being shouted, and then cut off as a bolt of lightning ...ripped into the cabin and vaporized the driver. Rose let loose an appropriately girlish scream and Mary just sort of felt her own scream die in her throat. Not needing to be told twice, Rose quickly moved open a window behind her and awkwardly shambled out, her dress getting caught momentarily and causing her to all but fall on her face as she tumbled from the bus in a rush, staggering back to her feet as she turned to check on her sister.

                              ...Mary, you dumb--

                              Inside, Mary had stopped to help their sleepy friend out of a jam. After having just watched Reanne pass out mid conversation, she had little faith in the girl's ability to wake up in a timely fashion, figure out what was going on, plot an escape and then act on that escape plan in a timely manner. "Hang on, I've got you." she murmured, slipping one arm underneath Reanne's thighs and the other under her back. Mary scooped Reanne into her arms and cradled the other tightly to her chest. She then stood back upright with some effort, her legs wobbling insecurely with her newfound weight. Right! Now to make her heroic escape! ...It was then that Mary realized that windows were small and difficult to climb out of, and she was moving for two. Her pupils dilated rather sharply as her gaze drifted to the disintegrating front of the bus. She felt like she staring down the throat of an eldritch monster! Mary backed away in a panic, only for the sound of violently snapping metal to greet her ears.

                              "Dahlia, use Sacred Sword!" Rose commanded, having released her honedge to aid in Mary's escape. With two powerful slashes, Dahlia cut through the metal wall of the bus like a hot knife through butter, tearing away a large hole in the side of the bus through which a thoroughly spooked Mary quickly hopped through, staggering rather hard and nearly falling forward as she landed. Rose rushed to Mary's side and gave her a little tug, guiding her away from the bus. She had no idea where they were going, but if they were lucky the danger would stay with the bus. "C'mon, we need to go..." she anxiously urged.

                              Emmanuel "Manny" Chapman
                              Emmanuel had been enjoying the view, at least partially. While big old rocks were always a pleasant sight, the constant thrum of thunder and the blinding bolts of light preceding each heavy beat left his body tense, weary, like something instinctual was knocking on the corners of his mind. The chatter of the other passengers was drowned out, and his surroundings, at least on the bus, he was no longer aware... Until the bus began to slow to a halt. Emmanuel felt the weight of the bus shift as the vehicle's front pulled to the left and when the young man turned his attention to the driver's seat to get a glimpse of what was going on, he was blinded by a detonation of light tearing right through the roof of the vehicle.

                              By the time Emmanuel regained a hold of his senses, another bolt of light tore through the bus, muffling the shouts and screams of those around him. When the brightness faded, Emmanuel's eyes widened in shock. Everything was missing, the front of the bus, the driver, the seats at the front, the floor, it was all gone. He knew it was only a matter of time until he was gone too.

                              His right hand shot for his waist, clicking the mechanism of a pokeball before grabbing for another. Emmanuel leaped from the window seat stepping halfway into the aisle and shouted, "Juice, Dynamic Punch! Standing in the seat previously occupied by Emmanuel, rearing its clenched and glowing fist back, was his Juice, the Poliwrath. Under an explosion of glass, peppering into spaces in Emmanuel's hair and leaving minor cuts on his face, the metal of the bus's wall gave in, leaving an outward gap the size of Juice's fist.

                              Both of them knew this was not big enough for an escape unless that of a comically small person. Without much thought, Emmanuel took a step back in the aisle and sidearm chucked the pokeball in his hand as far as he physically could, hoping that at least they could get out safely. Meanwhile, Juice knocked aside the seats to its side, easily dislodging them with strong punches and kicks. It the new space around him, the pokemon took a wide stance, grabbed the newly formed hole with its cartoonishly massive hands, palms outwards, and with its powerful muscles taut, began to rip the wall apart.

                              As Emmanuel reached for his third and final pokeball, he realized something and stopped. The first pokeball, it's flight over, clanked against an outcropped rock and rebounded into the air. Despite her appearance, with her rotund body and frankly dull expression practically always on her face, not to mention the swirly head of hers that just looked plain silly, Lady was probably the most intelligent of the pokemon he had on his roster. Even from this distance, she could see the panic in her trainer's eyes. In an instant, the Lickilicky shot her dry tongue through the air and into the gap Juice had created, twirling it skillfully around her trainer like a ribbon. Only a ribbon wasn't this strong. He could feel her grip tighten around his waist, almost astonished at the strength of it. Juice gave his trainer one look back and then, flexing his legs and bending at the knees, leaped from the bus through the now massive hole he had stretched apart.

                              Another thought came to Emmanuel at that moment, something fleeting, but he refused to ignore it. With one hand gripping his lifeline in Lady's tongue, Emmanuel turned towards the aisle and shot his free arm out into it. Again, another burst of lighting roared down upon them, this time close enough to Emmanuel that he could feel the heat of it searing against his face. Everything felt dry. He couldn't see a thing. Gritting his teeth, Emmanuel shouted out into the crowd, whatever was left of it, "If anyone's there, grab on!"

                              And then, Lady began to pull.

                              Continuing writing, minding his own business. Chaos erupted towards the front of the bus.

                              What the hell?!

                              In front of his eyes the bus driver, the front of the bus, everything was evaporated instantly by a bright shock from the clouds he had just been gazing upon moments before. Toru awe-struck by the sight before him was frozen solid. He stared as some of the trainers released their Pokemon and began to tear through the sides of the bus to escape. A Poliwrath slung it's fist with fury, one of the girls he had noticed before threw out a Honedge and began to tear through the metal sides like it was nothing. Discharge continued to tear through large chunks of the bus one by one.

                              Move. Now.

                              Toru broke free from his entrancement. Slinging his bag back over his shoulder he reached at his belt grasping a Dusk Ball. "Medicham! Psycho Cut!" He roared as the Pokemon erupted into the scene. "Cham!" the misproportioned fighting type clapped it's hands together and began to meditate briefly as it's hands began to envelop a mystical aura. It's eyes opened, glowing with a shadowing purple hue as it thrust two blades from it's open palms blazing through the compact steel sides of the bus and leaving a glowing red X in it's place. "Now, kick it through!" He followed up quickly as Medicham quickly lept forward bursting through the weakened slots he had made. Toru jumped through the new opening and observed his surroundings. Some of the passengers were still struggling to make their way through the damaged escape routes that had been made.

                              It was hot, the continuous strikes made sure each wave of heat pummeled his face one after another. Beads of sweat were now dripping from his scalp, Toru let out a deep breath. Noticing those still struggling he ordered, "Medicham, I don't know if it will stop something this powerful... but I need you to try to use Reflect to block some of these strikes..." he reached for his belt as his partner lept forward. "Cham!" It roared as it's hands waved above it's head near the bus creating a thick magical layer. Toru struggled his way closer to the bus as he threw his second Pokeball in front of him. Espeon appeared, eyes glowing red ready to help.

                                With the accident causing mayhem, everyone on board was thrown to a disarray. Transportation partially destroyed, far from usable. Several Trainers displayed their fear through the rush of their Pokémon's might, and doubtful decisions came upon taking sole on the shaded asphalt. Worse still, with the bus lights slowly flickering to a shut, their current source of lighting was limited to the sight of entrance and lightning itself. Stumbling on hard surfaces might be the least of one's concerns, but danger isn't limited to just that.

                                Meanwhile, Reanne was sleeping rather soundly on Mary's embrace. Her face looking peach red, droll almost flowed down her lips, unaware of the efforts the two sisters have to go through to rescue Reanne from her untimely demise. As if she was the luckiest passenger in the wreckage, and that too in more ways than just one.

                                In truth, Reanne hardly could get any rest from the beginning of her journey, right to where she was, and the rhythmical shake disturbed her even more. Eventually, still on one's craddle, Reanne yawned and reluctantly squinted her eyes to see what was the ruckus about. The first two people she saw was Mary and Rose, both looking visibly uneasy.

                                "Hunnh... Are we there yet?" Unaware as always, she inquired, "Where are we going...? Did something happen?"
