The Multiverse

Setting

The Pokemon Trainer's Academy is a semi-famous school for pokemon trainers where quite a few of the world's famous pokemon trainers have taught at one point or another. Originally founded by Professor Gary Oak; this city has a port, it's own town, and an unprecedented amount of tools dedicated to the betterment of trainers. Children enroll here, or are enrolled by their parents, in hopes of getting themselves an advantage over the rest in a structured environment. Prospective students take a written and field exam to evaluate their skills, where upon they are assigned to one of four dorms based on their skill. (Raikou, Entei, Suicune and Lugia dorm in order of skill required to join.)

The facility's rather massive staff has a very avant garde stance on education, and teachers are encouraged to teach however they please so long as students are getting smarter and stronger. Sometimes, older trainers come here seeking to find new inspiration and refine their skills even further. For those that simply visit, the island hosts a very large selection of pokemon from all over the world, and Technical Machines for almost any move not exclusive to legendary pokemon can be bought in town.

Elder nodded, grinned savagely, and readied his clawed hands much like he did when he applied Toxic to many an enemy. He thrust his hands forward repeatedly in multiple jabs, all focused on a singular point, between the attacks everyone else was throwing.

Radegast glanced at the group trying to break through the barrier. He signalled to the others that he was going to form up with the barrier-breaking crew that Elder just joined.

Crystal and the Operative were both beginning to show signs of fatigue, but Suros remained as speedy and deadly as ever. The human produced some potions and said, “Operative, form up.” The Joltik bounded back to Radegast’s side. While Suros and Crystal provided cover, Radegast applied the medicinal sprays to rejuvenate the Joltik’s fighting ability. Radegast also rubbed his hoodie sleeve against his sling to build up some static electricity for the Operative to absorb. It was not much, but the tiny Joltik appreciated the extra charge. They repeated the potion treatment for Crystal as well. “Suros, you doing okay, buddy?”

Suros slashed at the ground once more, sending another billowing cloud of sand into the faces of many an opponent. This gave her time to chirp, “Lord-Regent, I am fine if you’re fine!”

“What he means is do you need any potions?” Crystal returned.

“I know, but I’m fine! They haven’t even landed a hit on me!” Suros bragged before she returned to the fray.

“Well, nothing ever could land a hit on you,” Radegast chuckled, “Still, be careful. A’ight?”

“You got it, Lord-Regent!”

“Crystal, they’re gonna need your help with that barrier,” Radegast indicated the group sending attack after attack at the barrier.

Crystal nodded, hopped over to the group, and fired off her Aqua Jet at a location near Elder’s targeted location.

Between the Operative and Suros, the enemy was slowly, but surely gaining ground. Suros could dodge and weave all day, the enemy was simply too slow, but the Fletchinder could not attack as much as she’d like. Operative could only push the enemy back with well-placed String Shot.

If they were to break through the barrier, it had to be now. Radegast was ready to grab Crystal and leap through as soon as an opening was made. Everyone else was fast enough on land.



The blow was at full-power, but the Meowstic’s enraged monologue gave the Mankey time to raise his arms to try to block whatever came. The blob of energy slammed against Rage, tearing through his being. The attack made his cellular structure ripple and flare up in an enormous amount of pain. Rather, it brought back and amplified that pain the Mankey’s anger had previously forced himself to ignore. Rage dropped to his knees. His eyes seemed calm, almost glazed, even. A fist shot out and caught himself before he could drop forward and hit the ground. CHEAP MOVES? TELL THAT TO THE STRIKE FROM THE HEAVENS! IT MATTERS NOT, FOR NO GOD COULD EVER QUENCH THE FIRES OF RAGE!

Rage laughed a maniacal chortle. “YOUR FRUSTRATION IS LIKE A MOTHER'S NECTAR! IT TOOK THREE SUPER-EFFECTIVE MOVES ON YOUR PART TO MERELY INCAPACITATE ME! YOU ARE NO SUROS! YOU ARE TRULY WEAK! EVEN FRIEND-RADEGAST- A MERE HUMAN MORTAL- COULD DEFEAT YOU WITH HIS BARE HANDS!” Rage was defiant enough to avoid a KO entirely… but he was indeed no longer capable of fighting. Despite his fury, he learned from Elder to always retain a modicum of intelligence and control. Rage knew that he needed medical attention and quick. If only the Lord-Regent could get through that barrier. For now, however, he continued laughing, playing to the Meowstic's frustrations. She did not seem trained in the controlled usage of her own anger, unlike the Mankey. She'd probably be blinded by her own anger, left vulnerable to a clever move by the obviously more intelligent Turtwig or the Greninja.

Come on, woman, think. You've been in tougher situations before. Touko tried to psych herself up as Volcarona was gravely wounded and Terrakion was quickly outmaneuvered. "Dweller! Rock Polish, you've got to keep that Zoroark busy! Don't let him fluster you, so corner him with Quick Attack! Volcarona, Quiver Dance, then Bug Buzz!"

Terrakion swung its head about rapidly, barely scraping the horns against its rocky hide to drastically boost its speed and be able to keep up with the suddenly more agile villain before zipping around behind Zane with speed that made it almost invisible to even a trained eye, trying to give it a powerful shove in the right direction. Its goal was to herd the Dark-type into range for Volcarona's boosted sound-based attack, which would also hit Zekrom as well for decent damage. Quiver Dance would also make the bug faster and more elusive, better able to avoid the finishing blow from the larger black dragon.

"Zekrom, it's me, your friend, Touko! You have to remember! I don't want to fight you!"

Zane eyed the Terrakion as it used Rock Polish to make itself faster and more capable of keeping up with his own Agility. A very smart move on it's part, Zane realized as he could guess pretty accurately what was going to come next. His prediction rang true when the quick attack smashed right into him, sending him in the direction of Zekrom...right as Volcarona used Bug Buzz. Zane braced for impact as the sound waves ripped through him and Zekrom.

Touko's plan had worked exactly how she hoped it would.

But Zane was determined. Turning his own pain into anger, Zane quickly pumped himself up and stood in front of the electric dragon-type, "Zekrom can't hear you," he discouraged the brunette, a cruel sneer crossing his face, "My little shiny rock here makes sure of that!"

Zane lunged forward, going for Volcarona with Night Slash. Meanwhile, Zekrom switched targets as well, aiming for Terrakion with Draco Meteor. Zane's Agility would help him keep up with the Fire Psychic Bug while Zekrom was going to try for the ranged attack as the comets began to rain down upon Dweller.




Sonya's eyes flared up at the insult directed by the Mankey. Who did this fool think he was? A cruel laugh slipped out, but her body language radiated nothing but anger as she walking towards the struggling Pokemon.

"Really, now? The human could take me on? Too bad he sent me his worthless cousin!" Sonya unleashed a Psybeam straight at the already downed Rage, adding insult to injury. But she continued to barrage him, "Where is your human friend now, huh?!" she added another Psybeam, which would make Rage slide across the ground even further.

"ENOUGH!" Tag's own anger took control as he lunged at the Meowstic, ignoring his aches and pains. The speed Tag had as well as the suddenness of the strike was enough to catch Sonya completely off guard, causing them both to fall down in the tall grass. Tag began his own barrage once he had Sonya pinned down. "No one deserves to suffer like that!" he snarled in her face as he used any kind of damaging move he could think of to her.

But Sonya's shock on her face turned to smiles when her fingers wrapped around a familiar baton. She had kept it in the Fire-Type setting when she'd lost it and now it was time to finish what she had started before the Mankey rudely interrupted. Bringing the baton down on Tag's head, she felt the jar in her arm, the pulsing of flames exerting from the tip of the baton into Tag, and then Tag was still. Pushing the unconscious Turtwig off of her, she got up slowly and emerged from the battleground.

Gova threw a flurry of Water Shurikens in the Meowstic’s direction, to which Sonya disappeared into the tall grass once more, evading the attack. Gova snarled in disgust before deciding to cloud the area even more with Smokescreen. As the charcoal grey cloud spread, nothing moved for a moment. Everything was still. Then a flurry of attacks could be heard, the remnants of which would occasionally pop out and hit the wall. It was a fast exchange, then a loud zap, a cry of pain that was cut off, and silence once more. The clouds dissipated, Sonya standing in the middle of which. Gova was not visible from where the Meowstic stood, but she was lying on the ground, knocked out after a few hits.

“There we go…nothing a little pest control couldn’t fix,” Sonya stepped out into the short grass, turning to Rage one more, ”Now where were we?”

Before a response could be made, a loud explosion was heard behind her. Sonya whirled around to find a hole in the pink barrier she had created. How?!



The barrier had needed a further push. Crimson had evolved his flurry of punches to a continuous Flame Wheel. Sarik invoked the power of the Hydro Pump once more. Even Elder used as much power he could muster. But it just wasn’t enough trauma in one spot to break through. Panting, Crimson and Sarik stopped the onslaught they were using. Sarik was very fatigued, having used Hydro Pump more than twice that day. It had taken a lot out of him.

“We need more power!” Crimson shouted over the sound of battle roaring on around them.

The circle the group had formed around the three was closing in. There were just too many Pokemon to fight. Dobro and Domingo fought side by side, trying their best to delay the approach. Pert had long before hopped off of Pounce’s back and was backing up with everyone else. Pounce himself had stopped focusing on quips and actually started concentrating. Everyone had at least one or two attacks hit them, ignored through the adrenaline of battle. But they gave ground and the Psychic Rebellion ate it all up.

Crimson and Sarik became aware of their surroundings, noticing the steady approach of Pokemon heading towards them. It was close enough that random or deflected attacks were hitting parts of the wall and falling around the three. Crimson had to dodge to the right as a Flamethrower was sent in his direction. Sarik turned to the Chimchar, concern in his eyes as well as in his voice.

“Crimson…”

“I know,” he cut the Squirtle off, gripping his Power Bat tightly as he prepared for the worst.

A flurry of movement came from the forest, catching the eye of Crimson first before anyone. He pointed past their attackers, “Look!”

Then suddenly, wings and claws popped out of the tree line, revealing a large group of Pokemon coming out of the forest. There were a variety of types among them, but two features remained constant. For one, the majority of them had wings or was a Dark-Type of some kind. The other, a white bandana tied around each of their heads with a red sphere in the center, lines extruding from it…a familiar pattern to all the combatants there.

The Sunrise Clan had come to help.

The Psychic Rebellion turned around in confusion before getting hit with all kinds of attacks, Wing Attack, Sucker Punch, Dark Pulse…all battering around on each side. War seemed to break out as the Psychic Rebellion was now fighting on two sides, sandwiched in between. Among the Sunrise Clan’s side, a winged figure broke out from the crowd, flying over the battle and landing in the clearing with Crimson and Sarik.

“Hey,” the Murkrow grinned, “Figured you guys could use some help.” He paused as he took in Elder for the first time, remembering the fight with the Ghastly he’d been a part of a ways back…what seemed like ages ago.

“He won’t hit you unless you strike first…” Crimson reminded him before turning around to face the pink wall once more, “Which speaking of striking…you guys got enough power to help us break through?”

The Murkrow laughed, “Do we?!” He whistled, loud and piercing over the sound of fighting. Instantly, a crowd of winged Pokemon came flying over, led by a certain Starraptor.

“Peggy, can we blow a chunk into the wall?” the Murkrow asked, a knowing smile crossing his face.

“Sure, Edal,” Peggy smirked in reply, spreading her wings out. The Flying-Types behind her did the same thing, setting themselves up for a collective and powerful attack.

“Sunrise Brigade!” Peggy called, “Mass Gust!”

The wind storm that surged from the formation was incredible, throwing all sorts of energy into it. Sarik found another Hydro Pump within himself and launched it at the barrier. Crimson smirked on his own accord as he charged up another Flame Wheel.

We’re coming guys, Crimson thought as he launched his spinning self at the wall. With a final smash, he broke through. The Chimchar was the first to land on the other side as he landed feet first on the peninsula. Turning around, Crimson could already see the wall trying to form itself back together, the edges pulsing and morphing the hole down to a smaller and smaller size. Sarik leaped through it next.

“Guys, hurry!” Crimson called back to Elder and Radegast, “The hole is closing!”

The barrier finally broke. With the constant damage around the middle area, the opening curved and split wide open. Wasting no time, Elder and Radegast (the latter of whom grabbed Crystal) vaulted into the opening, followed by the quick hops of the Operative, and the impossibly speedy flight of Suros. Mid-vault, Radegast pulled his left arm from his sling and grasped at one of the pokeballs on his belt. Ignoring the slight pull his shoulder tendons were feeling, the human swung the spherical device around and pointed it directly at Rage.

A mere instant before the Meowstic could land a finishing blow, Rage vanished in a red flash. The last thing the Meowstic saw from the Mankey was a knowing grin. Suros swooped low on the ground and sent dirt toward the Meowstic’s face. Behind the cloud of sand, A net of uncharged string shot webbing was flung through. Elder followed up the string shot by closing the distance before throwing out one more Sucker Punch, using the blinding sand as cover, and the string shot as a way to hold the target down. Three attackers, each of them angered at the treatment the Meowstic had given to their friend, and none of them were willing to fight fair.

Radegast placed Crystal back on the ground and released Rage at his side. The human crouched down and quickly produced a couple of potions. “Well-fought, O’ warrior” Radegast smirked.

Rage coughed. His whole body trembled. Any other pokemon would have succumbed to worse states from such a barrage of attacks, but Rage’s sheer stupid force of will kept him barely conscious… or rather, conscious enough to maintain his style of speech. “IT WAS NOT!!! THE CREATURE WAS WEAK AND *cough* UNDISCIPLINED! IT RELIES TOO MUCH ON TOOLS AND WEAPONS AND NOT *cough cough* ENOUGH ON IT’S CORE!! IT WAS HARDLY A CHALLENGE WORTHY OF THE INFINITE RAGE!!!!!!” The tough act was only betrayed by glazed, tired eyes, and even a little blood trickling from the corner of a mouth, hidden by thick tan fur.

“Alright, just hold still a sec.” Radegast stated seriously as he applied a couple of potions. The pain the Mankey experienced vanished quite quickly, as befitting the powerful medicinal sprays. Rage still shivered as his body began to adjust from 0.001% health to 40% health once more.

“Let’s see…” Radegast checked his bag after tossing the empty, bio-degradable bottles. “Oh dear… one Super potion left… sheeeit… I gotta get more money.”

“Well, that’s what the Gym Challenge is for,” Crystal replied as she prepared to focus some icy wind to form a couple of narrow stalagmites. “After this, I’m down for taking on some Gyms. I bet Rage would like that too."

“AND NO ONE SHALL STOP ME!!!!” Rage reached for a stalagmite with a still-trembling arm.

Radegast reached out quicker, grabbed one, and broke it off off at the base. “Take it easy, buddy. You’re one hell of a defiant guy, but you just need a little more time for the effects to take,” He stood up with the ice spear in his good hand. He twirled the spear in his hand as he ignored the Meowstic’s fate and focused on the orb that had Touko trapped in a fight… probably to the death. The human spotted a Zoroark through the pink translucent barrier. With nary a second thought, Radegast rose his good arm and flung the icicle at the barrier like a javelin. Obviously it could not pierce the barrier when the first layer took the better part of an army to break through. But the better part of an army was here now, and the sound of the ice breaking would probably call the talking Zoroark’s attention. If anything, the shattering ice would serve as some sort of split-second distraction for Touko to make use of.

If the Dark-type did turn to investigate the noise of shattering ice, he would see Radegast’s friendly grin. “What’s up, dude?” The human would then ask in that instance.

Touko cursed under her breath as Volcarona was finally outmaneuvered and felled by the mighty Zekrom. That did little to quell her feelings of regret and anger. After all, it was her fault her whole team was going to suffer, by flying right into this trap to meet the enemy head-on. Then she swore over her breath as the fainted Sun Pokémon was returned. Kuso... That made her feel a little better.

"I'm not giving up yet! Let's do this, Juggernaut!" Out came a long-bodied, bipedal Pokémon, thick yellow scales protecting its body as it sported a pair of wicked axe blades from either side of its beaked upper jaw. The Haxorus cried out, ready to smash some skulls as it stared down the legend it had clashed against once before. Strength versus strength. Will versus will. "Juggernaut! Let's give him a Dragon Dance! Dweller..." She stopped as the icicle crashed against the barrier. Her friends were fighting for their lives out there! She had to succeed! "Dweller! Pin them down with Rock Slide!"

Another spread move that would give Zekrom and Zane something to think about while the Haxorus focused on raising its power levels, huge boulders came crashing down on the enemy's side of the battlefield even while the so-called musketeer zipped back and forth, matching the Zoroark's speed and keeping the villain in its sights, ready for any trickery that may come next.

Sonya didn't even have time to cry out in pain. The three attacks found their mark and she crumpled under neath them. She didn't move.

As Radegast's team dealt with Rage, Crimson and Sarik looked for their two companions, "Gova! Tag!" A few moments later, they found them both in the field about thirty yards apart. Gova was still knocked out while Tag was coming to.

"You alright?" Crimson pulled Tag to his feet.

"Yeah..." Tag said before he felt a flare of pain rising up on his left side, "Ack...no...not really."

Crimson looked at Tag with concern before digging into his pack and pulling out the Rawst Berry he had in there and giving it to him, "Here, this'll help."

Tag took it obligingly as Crimson called out to Sarik, "You got an Oran Berry for Gova, right?" Sarik nodded. Crimson turned back to the Turtwig who was slowly finding his way to a sitting position.

"Well that's one brutal agonizing pain down," he muttered. Crimson gave him his Oran Berry to which Tag took without hesitation. Crimson looked back towards the barrier they had broken a moment ago. It had reformed, blocking the way in once more. On the other side, the fight raged between the Psychic Rebellion and the Sunrise Clan, neither side giving any indication as to who was winning.

Making a full one-eighty, Crimson watched as Touko was battling Zane and...was that her Zekrom?

The icicle whizzed past Crimson's face and he followed it's trajectory as it hit the barrier with a zing! sound. That certainly didn't do near enough to break it, but it did distract Zane as he glanced that direction to see Radegast's smiling face.

Radegast's distraction couldn't have come at a better time. The Rock Slide made by Terrakion found it's way home, hitting both Zekrom and Zane. Grunting, Zane was quick to pull himself to his feet once more, noticing the Haxorus for the first time. Outside the barrier were both Crimson and his team as well as Radegast standing there...waiting to see the outcome.

Sonya had failed. And as a result, he was vastly outnumbered. Even if he managed to beat Touko, it was likely that he wouldn't have the strength to take down Radegast and Crimson.

Zane knew what he had to do. With a quick leap backwards, Zane pressed the button on the pink wristband and escaped the arena. Now on the other side, Zane turned around and made a theatrical bow towards Touko.

"I secede. These conditions are not optimal for fighting any longer. You have won." he tasted the last sentence bitterly as he went on, "But I won't be giving up the Master Blaster that easily. Sorry to break a promise, but I teeter on the edge of what I need to accomplish. Next time, try to be a little smarter and call your Pokemon back into your Pokeball when someone else has it!"

A slight pause, then Zane spoke clearly to everyone, "But know this! You all may have won this battle, but the war has only begun! I will return..." he stared at Crimson with all the menace and hate in his eyes, "And I will have my revenge."

Crimson winked at him, "Try it."

"Retreat!" his voice echoed past everyone to the fight going on at the edge of the peninsula...his followers. A rustle of grass would possibly alert anyone who heard to Sonya's position. She was carrying something huge and it was clear she had taken a massive beating. But she still managed to look back at all of them with a sneer before she jumped off the edge of the peninsula. Zane gave a small wave of his own before falling backwards off the peninsula and into the water. Only one splash was heard.

The moment the splash was made, the barriers began to come down. It took a few seconds for it to trickle down to the point where Touko and her Pokemon could step over it. Zekrom, Touko would find, was still unresponsive. As everyone else would notice if they got to the edge of the peninsula, Sonya was riding on a Lapras, away from the island. The rest of the Psychic Rebellion retreated to the forest behind them. Some of the Sunrise Clan gave chase while others stood behind and waited.

Elder’s hands dripped in purple, poisonous essence, he had been punching throughout most of the battle and it really wore down on his relatively new appendages. Operative was tired, nearly out of static electricity to still function. She clung onto Radegast’s hoodie for most of the aftermath. She was absorbing the static electricity the human’s layers of clothes constantly accumulated by rubbing against one another. It was not much, but it was akin to a slow blood transfusion to the Joltik. Crystal, the Seel, panted heavily. Her muscles burned and ached from shooting as many Aqua Jets as Elder threw fists.

Rage was the most battered and bruised of them all. On top of that, he had been bleeding until Radegast applied first-aid. The Mankey certainly had it the worst, though he would not admit it. “RUN, COWARDS! YOU MAY SURVIVE THIS DAY, BUT YOU WILL NOT ESCAPE THE WRATH OF TEN TRILLION MALEVOLENT GODS!” Evidently, even at 40%, Rage held the aura of a bloodthirsty and immortal gladiator.

Suros, however, more served the physical description of a bloodthirsty and immortal gladiator. The Fletchinder was utterly unscathed, though her torso did expand and contract in what seemed like silent panting. Now that the battle was over, she folded her wings once more and lazily climbed up onto Radegast’s shoulder. This time, the shoulder seemed only a little too small for the bird. She was, after all, now twice her original size. In no time at all, a purring snore emitted from the now-larger bird.

Radegast slipped Rage’s pokeball back onto his belt and filled his bag back up with the supplies he had pulled out haphazardly to heal up the Mankey. “We’ll need to hit up a Pokemon centre later. Sound good, dudes?” Radegast asked.

Everyone, including the suddenly awakened Suros, nodded their approval.

“Well, sounds like we did all we could for today,” he said as the others, save Elder, formed up and hopped back into their respective pokeballs. Radegast bent down as Elder approached with essence-leaking claws. “That poison, or ectoplasm?”

“Looks like we’ll get matching scars, Lord-Regent,” the Haunter grinned as he rose both hands, “Although I doubt a ghostly body can get scarred.”

“It’s still classified,” Radegast chuckled as he imagined the Haunter was referring to the scarring on his own visible right hand. (He returned his left hand to the sling.) The human stood up and approached Touko. “Looked like some brain-washing device, if fighting your own pal meant anything.” Radegast smirked, “I’d hate to see Suros on the business end, that’s for sure… Anyway, I imagine you want to give chase, but I’d rather my friends get stronger. Where’s this first gym, exactly?”

Touko gasped and moaned, the exhilaration overcoming her for a minute before laying eyes on Radegast. "You'll want to go to Aspertia City. My good friend Cheren runs the place. Lots of room to rock and roll out there, and a bunch of learning material as well." She sighed. "Jodan deshou...all that for him to just run away? Well, time to dismantle that big thing the hard way. Juggernaut...use Outrage on that cannon."

Maybe if Touko had studied a bit more history, she would have realized the parallels with an incident way over in Kalos some three millennia ago. As it was, the Haxorus whipped itself into a frenzy, whaling away at anything and everything he could reach to destroy the device that nearly destroyed everything. "He said he was close to his goal. Whatever it is, I bet it involves this thing...which is why I'm gonna scrap it. Zekrom, return..."

The fight was over. Most of the Psychic Rebellion had fled the scene with nothing but the battlefield as evidence to show they were there. Most of the Sunrise Clan either gave chase or began to celebrate their victory. As for the combined efforts of TeaM PerSisTenCe, Team Justice, and Team RedEye, they were gathered around in a circle, discussing what they had just witnessed. It was clear they weren't counting this as a victory.

"So Zane was the one controlling Domingo yesterday?" a very confused Tag was asking.

Crimson nodded, "As far as I could tell, that amulet he's wearing gives him the power to control other Pokemon."

"I don't think there's any kind of stone out there that allows Pokemon to be possessed," Sarik added, "Which means it's likely tech."

"But the tech creator for the Psychic Rebellion was Br. Benson," Pert brought up, "So does that mean he's here as well?"

"I sensed the change in him the day I turned him into an Oshawott," Crimson thought, "I don't think he and Neeko are behind this. I think it's just Zane and Sonya."

"Then who's their tech maker?" Dobro sat on the ground, thinking.

"I don't know..." Crimson stared at the ground, "Unless one of them learned how to build, we have to assume it's by someone on this planet."

A loud roar cut through the conversation. Whirling around, the group realized it was Touko's Haxorus about to perform Outrage.

"Move!" Crimson shouted. No one dallied behind. The seven Pokemon dove into the treeline just as Juggernaut began decimating the landscape. Despite it's destructive power and range, it didn't hit the riding form of the Lapras. They had made a clean getaway.

When the smoke cleared, the peninsula area wasn't too much different from how it had been when the battle ended. There were already holes in the ground from attacks of all types during. All Juggernaut did was make the terrain more rugged. Relieved that Outrage had passed, Crimson and company walked back out into the open.

"Well, that question's still a mystery..." Tag thought, "But then what about the Psychic Rebellion? How have they already gotten so many members on board?"

This was another concern. It had taken months back on Mohka for the Psychic Rebellion to gather as many members as Zane and Sonya led today. And while Crimson could consider the fact that the two had been here that amount of time, he doubted it. Zane had come here for Crimson. And he knew that he entered the portal first. Given that he'd only been in this dimension about a month or two, Zane had to have come here within the past month...not enough time to gather recruits the way Neeko had. So how did he do it?

"Greetings," a voice came from above. Everyone turned to find a Hawlucha landing next to them. He wore a Sunrise Clan bandana with a unique swirly pattern in the circle of the design. Behind him was Edal the Murkrow, smiling at them.

"My name is Ray," the Hawlucha introduced, "I am the leader of the Sunrise Clan. Our member Edal here had told us of your previous encounter with us. I'd like to apologize on our behalf for the misunderstanding back there." He extended a wing to shake which Crimson did without hesitation.

"Not a problem with us," Crimson shrugged, "Thanks for swooping in and saving the day. And while I'm cool with what happened back there, I think those guys would appreciate the apology more." He pointed at Radegast's Pokemon, which were standing around with their human friend. Ray nodded.

"You're right," Ray flapped his wings and approached the Haunter to apologize. Edal hopped closer to Tag, glancing warily in their direction.

"I don't like that Mankey with them," he said, "He scares me."

"More than me?" Dobro flashed a grin. Edal recognized him as one of the Pokemon who had knocked him out earlier and squawked out of fright, jumping a good few feet back. Peggy, who had landed only moments before, caught him before he started flying away.

"Relax, Edal, he won't hurt you," Peggy told him calmly. Edal nodded, but he still shook slightly as Peggy approached them, "Hey, I'm Peggy, leader of the Sunrise Brigade!"

Crimson inclined his head as an introduction, "I'm Crimson, leader of...whatever this ragtag group of Pokemon are."

"Hey!" Pounce's voice shot out, "We ain't a part of whatever team you lead, Crimson. Team RedEye's got it's own agenda!"

"Right, Crimson called back, "And if it's not kicking your former team leader's butt into a dungeon, you're not just letting us down, but the planet as well."

That seemed to shut the Houndoom up...at least for the next five minutes. Peggy smiled as Crimson went on, "But thanks for breaking down the barrier with us. We couldn't have done it without you."

Peggy waved him off, "Ah, it was nothing. We're just doing our job. Protecting our island from threats and dangers as well as protecting our own."

Crimson smiled back. It was what he was used to doing too...those exact words.

"Well, since you've met Ray and I...I guess you should meet the rest of the Sunrise Clan elites," Peggy went on.

Pert cocked his head, "Elites?"

"Our other leaders of certain divisions in the Sunrise Clan," the Staraptor explained as she led them to a bumbly looking Excadrill, "This is Shift. He is our base builder as well as our berry upkeep. He digs the underground tunnels we call home."

"Er...hiya!" Shift waved at them.

Peggy giggled, "He's not the smartest, but he's good at what he does." Moving on, Peggy approached a mean looking Weaville, "This is Sheena. She trains the Sunrise Clan members in ways of combat and also leads ground patrol." Sheena gave a curt nod to them.

"Kinda reminds me of Domingo," Dobro whispered.

"I was just about to say that!" Pert said.

"And here is Unix," Peggy brought them to a Dragonite. "She is the one that leads the transportation system to send our members off the island when they need to."

"Why would you need to send members off the island?" Sarik questioned curiously.

"Collecting resources, gaining intel, finding more members, and other things," Peggy listed, "How do you think we got such a lavish Berry Farm running? Not all the berries can be found here."

"So like our Dragonite Transportation System at home!" Pert happily cried.

It was Peggy's turn to cock her head in confusion. "Your Dragonite Transportation System? Where are you guys from?"

As Sarik explained the story, Tag looked at Crimson, who was deep in thought. "So," Tag sat down next to him, "What's our next move?"

Crimson looked out towards the water in the direction they'd all seen Zane leave, "We have to start a guild here."

Tag raised a brow, "The Isle Defenders?" When Crimson nodded, Tag had a lot of questions, "But what about home? Are we ever going back to Mohka?"

"Not while Zane is here, being a threat to this world," Crimson replied.

Tag thought for a moment, "I guess that makes sense, but why do we specifically need to start a guild?"

"Because the Psychic Rebellion is gaining too many members too fast. Us nine can't stop that alone. We need to start an army to fight back. The Sunrise Clan will help us on that front, but we'll need more."

"So where do we set up? Here?"

"Not just here. We do it the same way the Isle Defenders did it. We set up different locations all over to cover the place completely...in this case, the planet itself."

"And where's HQ?"

Crimson thought for a moment, "It can't be here. Zane will come running back to this island if he gets what he needs. Also, we can't endanger the humans if he does. It needs to be isolated from them." Having an idea, he turned to Unix, "Say, do you know of any place completely secluded from the humans."

Unix rubbed her chin, "Hmm...there are a lot of places like that. You talkin' about somewhere in specific?"

"Any place where we can set up a Pokemon Guild to fight against Zane," Crimson added.

"Well then it sounds like to me you're trying to reach the Pokemon Village," Unix told him, "It's a place in Kalos that is very hard to get to if you don't know your way around the Winding Woods. For humans, it's nearly impossible to navigate, but for Pokemon, it's easier because natives can give you some advice. For Flying-Types...we just fly over all the hassle and show up. Sounds like a great place to set up this...guild thing you guys got going for you."

"Sounds perfect," Crimson thanked him before calling to the Hawlucha, "Ray! I think I have a proposition for you!"

“Welp, we’re off to get stronger,” Radegast announced, “Aspertia… Interesting…”

“What does that even mean?” Elder asked, “Is it derivative from asperity?”

Radegast shrugged as he made one last gaze to the now-distant escape Lapras. “Regardless, you’ll need to use the pokeball in order to take advantage of the Poke-centre’s machinery.” The Haunter groaned as he lazily hovered behind Radegast. “Oh, not now,” Radegast laughed, “It’ll just be a few seconds once we’re there.”

The Haunter rolled his eyes, and then noticed the Hawlucha approaching. It apologized for that encounter around the berry bushes. “It’s no problem,” Elder returned, “If anything, I should apologize we took a Cheri Berry. One of our own accidentally paralyzed an approaching Samurott with a trap…” the Haunter grimaced in embarrassment and pain as he clasped his hands together to stem the leaking of purple essense, “The Operative likes forming perimeters.”

With nothing more interesting to do, Radegast began to waltz back to Oak Town. The human could not understand any of the Pokemon around anyway. “Anyway, we’re off. Good fight, eh?” Elder chimed as he zipped back to Radegast’s side. “Next stop, a mutilation clinic.”

“It’s not so bad,” Radegast teased, somehow aware of the Haunter’s discomfort, “Though those knuckles look like they need to be looked at.”

“Yeah, you’d know the first thing about the health of your knuckles,” Elder returned with a grin. Radegast laughed, but still walked.

The two of them left the battlefield, like many they had left before. Also like before, they were scarred, battered, but very much alive and in better shape than the enemies they had faced. Rarely did the team ever have to utilize a revive, a most expensive medicine. Taking on the gym challenge would grant Radegast access to such things. He did not mind being poor. Rather, he did not dream much at all. Even as he slept under the canopies of towering trees, he was not anxious. He did not look toward the future.

Everyone else found solace in the boy’s goal-less ways. They did not make adventure, they stumbled and strolled, and happened upon events. The Man in the Weird Suit, the Houndour Pack, among others. This Meowstic with the Magic Stick looked to be an interesting addition to their resume of The Strange. A future addition to them was the Gym challenge, otherwise known as “A Goal For Once”. To start, everyone needed some health care.

Soon enough, Radegast and Elder were back in Oak Town. They stopped by the Pokemon centre, a hospital that exists in nearly every settlement of any size throughout Ruula. Each and every one of them was staffed by at least one pink-haired woman who was always named Joy.

Radegast wondered if the Joys were all cousins, or if they were all sisters. Either one made Radegast question things a fifteen-year-old boy wouldn’t question otherwise. However, he maintained his laid-back composure as he approached the counter. The Chansey and Elder exchanged glances. The Chansey in particular noted the leaking purple. Elder shuddered as Radegast pulled each pokeball from his belt. Reluctantly, Elder entered his own, right before Radegast pulled that out and handed it to the nurse.

Joy slipped each pokeball into a slot on a machine set next to her and the Chansey. Radegast eyed the machine with keen interest as it whirred to life and emitted unusual rays absorbing into the pokeballs.

“Odd,” the Nurse hummed.

“What’s up?” Radegast asked.

“A short time after that laser in the sky, you come by with a team of injured pokemon,” she replied with strangely happy suspicion.

“A team of injured friends,” Radegast corrected.

“Did you have something to do with that laser?”

Radegast shrugged, “All I know is the laser was stopped.”

Joy’s lips pursed in disapproval, “Keeping your adventures to yourself?”

“Nothing worth telling yet,” Radegast replied, “Plus it would give my buddies big heads.” Few things ruined a friendship more than unchecked ego.

Joy hummed thoughtfully, “You should let them have their victories once in a while, young man.”

Radegast shrugged. One day, when they were old, maybe legendary.

“How is that shoulder, by the way?”

“A lot better now,” Radegast always had a slightly fast healing ability. He still eyed the machine, as if his eyes could see through the sterile hospital plating and view the incredibly complex circuitry and machinery housed within.

Eventually, the machine whimpered to a halt, and Nurse Joy began extracting the pokeballs. No sooner had she handed Radegast the first one did Elder pop out of one of the other balls. “By Arceius, it’s still terrible.”

Radegast laughed, harder especially when Nurse Joy flinched and fell backward. The Chansey was quick to catch Nurse Joy and shot the Haunter a glare as poisonous as Elder’s own attack.

“Sorry about that,” Radegast placed his hand on Elder’s forehead and pushed the Haunter away before he could do anything rash. Elder, however, returned a raspberry. “Hey, that ain’t cool dude,”

“Apologies, Lord-Regent,” Elder replied calmly. He then turned to the Chansey and Nurse Joy, “I’m sorry I find your human technologies wretched and uncomfortable.”

The Haunter zipped out the door before the Chansey could ready a single Egg Bomb, laughing as he went. Radegast waved with as polite a smile as he could muster and followed suit.

“Alright,” Radegast said as he caught up to Elder’s sniggering form, rolling on the stone street. “We’re off to Asperity… Asper… Who comes up with these names?”

Elder wiped his eyes as if there were invisible tears. “Aspertia,” he corrected.

“If that’s a correction, I didn’t understand it,” Radegast hummed. Elder shrugged. Radegast continued, “Still, that means we’re taking the boat.” Elder groaned even louder than before. “Well, that was pretty mean of you to do to Nurse Joy,” Radegast said, “Consider it payment for that… What?”

Elder was chuckling some more. “It wasn’t funny,” Radegast said.

“Then why are you smiling?” Elder asked.

Radegast’s face twitched, but his smirk could not fade even if he tried. “Anyway… Felucia… Asperger… Aspertia, that’s it!”

“Well done, Lord-Regent,” Elder chuckled, “Your human schools have done well to sharpen your mind… five years ago…”

They made their way to the boats. Despite Elder’s annoyance, the Haunter did return to the pokeball momentarily. They boarded a boat meant to bring them to Aspertia, or at least close to it. Radegast and his friends took their first steps toward the Gym challenge.

Kasumi could hear a ghostly giggle fade off into nothingness as the three primary-colored domes of the Academy loomed large before her. Whatever this little rascal wanted her to find, it was apparently here.

 “ Oh dear Arceus above.... I don’t know why the I decided to even go here. Everything is just so...Big and menacing? Yeah, that’s one way to describe it.

Well.. Let’s hope this place isn’t freaking haunted. ”
