My Awesome Pokemon Adventure

Recommended Posts

I walked up to the locked door and used the key. Luckily, it worked and the door opened, allowing for us to continue our escape.

 

Charlotte: Nice job Matt. So, are we all still going to my sister’s place in Chrysolia as planned?

Laura: Wait. You were all coming up there to begin with?

Matthew: Ohh yea. With everything that was going on, I guess I forgot to mention that to you.

Laura: It’s alright. It’s just a bit coincidental when you think about it. Makes sense though.

Matthew: Anyways, I deff wanna go there now.

Shelly: I don’t have anywhere else to go so…

Anna: W-We should go quickly, ok? Nostra… isn’t feeling good…

 

Everyone turned to look at Anna. She looked pale and not too well. But maybe that’s what she was saying about herself when she said it was Nostra. I walked over to her.

 

Noel: You’re the 1 that doesn’t look good Anna. You’re pale all over.

Matthew: Are you ok Anna?

Anna: N-No- I mean yes! It’s definitely Nostra! She says she’s dizzy and tired…

Noel: Right…

Matthew: Well… If that’s what you say, then I believe you.

 

Noel gave me a confusing glance. We looked away from Anna and whispered to each other.

 

Noel: What do you mean “if that’s what you mean, then I believe you.”? You can see it. She’s pale!

Matthew: I know she is Noel but she’s also a little kid and she’s not gonna admit to being sick.

Noel: But-

Matthew: Plus, arguing with her isn’t gonna make things go any faster here. The way I see it, if you agree with her, the faster we can make it to the house and she’ll be able to get better sooner.

Noel: Hmm. I see your point. I guess you’re right.

Charlotte: Are you 2 done having your little talk? We need to hurry it up.

Cain: Right. Lead the way Charlotte dear.~

 

Charlotte led the way as the rest of us followed her footsteps. I hadn’t seen this part of Reborn before. A lot of the tracks were broken and even more cracks were down here. I was surprised this place was still standing. We went all the way to the end but it was blocked off.

Q0F9JoP.png

 

Laura: Another blocked area?

Matthew: I don’t think the key I used before is gonna work on this. It doesn’t even have a keyhole.

Charlotte: Ugh. This place is just 1 door after another, isn’t it. So how in the world do we get through this 1.

Shelly: Um, I-I think I know how…

Matthew: How Shelly?

Shelly: I think I’ve read about these… When the Railnet was made, they didn’t really want people wandering in and out of it.

Matthew: Well… we’re kind of doing that now. Haha.

Shelly: -nervously laughs- Anyways, they made gates like this that would open for trains but not for people.

Charlotte: Well, it’s not like we have a way to just magically transform into trains Shelly.

Shelly: That’s not really how it’s d-done. I think it, um, works on a digital signal. We don’t really need to drive the train itself, but… I think it works if there’s the front of the train on the same track connected to this.

Laura: So all we have to do is make the tracks connect and this will open right?

Shelly: It s-should… But this place is so messy and cracked up… I don’t know if it’s possible. You gotta connect the tracks here. No debris or cracked tracks will work.

Matthew: Don’t worry. I’ll go connect the tracks together. This will be gone soon.

Anna: Please try to hurry up… Nostra feels like she’s getting worse…

Noel: I think if you find the train 1st, it’ll be easier to figure out what tracks to connect it to here Matt.

Matthew: Good idea Noel. Don’t worry Anna. We’ll be there soon. Then we can take care of Nostra.

Laura: Can I come hun?

Matthew: Sure. I think it’ll make things better. Be back as soon as we can guys.

Cain: Good luck you 2! No quick rabbit stops if you know what I mean.~

Laura: Rabbit stops?

Matthew: Umm… Let’s just get going babe huh?

 

We left the group and went to search for the train. Luckily for us, it didn’t take long to find it.

Ozq1ZzR.png

 

Matthew: Sweet. We found it.

Laura: Now let’s follow the tracks and see what tracks to switch it to.

 

As we searched for the right tracks for the train to be on, a curious question flowed into my head.

 

Matthew: Can I ask you something babe?

Laura: Sure. What is it?

Matthew: How did you get here if both of those doors were closed?

Laura: Well when I came here, they were both opened. They must have closed them sometime after I came through.

Matthew: Ohh. Yea. That makes sense.

Laura: Wait. Did you think that I was part of-

Matthew: What? Part of them? No babe! Never. I was just curious. That’s all.

Laura: Well… alright. Hey. I think we almost got this.

Matthew: How do you know?

Laura: Because the last switch is right in front of the group.

Matthew: Ohh… I knew that.

Laura: Haha. Ohh hun. You’re so silly.

 

We pulled the lever and the object blocking the way forward suddenly moved which meant we could continue on with our plan of going to the house Charlotte was talking about.

QSmQCd7.png

 

Charlotte: Nice job you 2. Now let’s get out of here.

 

The group left the tunnel and out into the wilderness. It felt good to be outside for once. But as soon as everyone came out, Heather had Salamence come out, jumped onto it and then flew off into the sky, going who knows where.

1nqwpG0.png

 

Everyone looked on. Some in confusion and some in somewhat anger.

 

Shelly: Ohh… Umm, Ok then. Bye?

Laura: Well… That’s-

Matthew: Heather… Fuck.

Laura: Why would she do that?

Shelly: -whispering to herself- It’s not like I wanted to help my friend out or anything.

Cain: Aaaaaaand the second she sees moonlight she’s gone. Riiiiight.

Charlotte: Well, what can we do about it?

Matthew: Nothing. Let’s just continue on with our current plan.

Charlotte: I agree. Is everyone ready?

Cain: Actually guys, I’m still gonna go after her. I hope that’s ok. It’s just until I make sure she’s safe.

Matthew: Dude, it wouldn’t feel right if you didn’t go after her. It’s cool. We got things handled here. We’ll see you later man. It’s been fun.

Cain: Thanks Matt.~ Bye everyone.

Charlotte: Later Princess.

 

Cain walked passed everyone and went out of view.

Everyone looked back to the twins when Noel spoke.

 

Noel: Guys, she’s practically white.

Anna: N-No, I’m fine! Nostra’s the 1 not feeling good! Remember?

Charlotte: Then let’s keep going. We need to get to safety and make sure “Nostra” can rest. Follow me guys.

 

Everyone went up north and entered a cave. As everyone walked through the cave, Laura and Charlotte walked up to a metal object. They seemed confused.

DXnuo0p.png

 

Charlotte: This metal junk is new.

Laura: Yea. This wasn’t here before.

Matthew: Jeez. How fast are these Meteor people?

 

Suddenly, the ground started to shake. Little rocks fell from the top of the cave down to the ground. Luckily no 1 was hurt but everyone wondered what caused that mini earthquake.

 

Matthew: Earthquakes? This just never stops does it.

Charlotte: Come on. Let’s keep moving. We’re almost there.

 

We continued up through the cave. There was more metal things inside the cave and more mini earthquakes. When me and Laura caught up, Charlotte was waiting for us.

 

Laura: What are you doing Charlotte? We’re almost there.

Charlotte: I know. Is it ok if I talk to Matt here for a second?

Laura: Uhh… Yes sure. See you in a bit babe. -kisses Matthew-

Matthew: -kisses back- See ya babe.

 

I watched as Laura disappeared through a passage and presumably into the light. I turned towards Charlotte but she had a serious look on her face. It took me aback for a second there.

YV80ZjZ.png

 

Matthew: Umm… Is everything al-

Charlotte: So you and my sister are together huh? Why?

Matthew: Because we like each other?

Charlotte: Listen to me. She’s 1 of the best sisters anyone could ever hope for and I’ll be damned if she gets her heart broken.

Matthew: Whoa whoa. I would never do that to her Charlotte.

Charlotte: Hmm. We’ll see about that. But I will say this. She seems to have broken out of her shell since you 2 have gotten together. So I guess that’s a positive. Just treat her good and we don’t got a problem. Alright?

Matthew: Trust me Charlotte. I would never do anything to hurt your sister.

Charlotte: I’m gonna hold you to that. Now let’s go. We’re nearly there.

 

Charlotte raced to the exit of the cave and I followed suit. I made it to the exit of the cave and went outside. The sight was beautiful. I could see the house across a beautiful looking lake. And a lot of pretty flowers. I walked around the lake to get to the house. I caught up to Charlotte again. She seemed to be counting something.

Vk9yfdT.png

 

Matthew: Umm… What are you doing Charlotte?

Charlotte: These flower rings… 1, 2, 3… 8. 1, 2… 8… 8… -sighs- Laura’s been at it again. Well before she came looking for us.

Matthew: What do you mean?

Charlotte: I don’t know why but she does a lot of things in eights.

Matthew: Ohh.

Charlotte: Anyways, we’re here. Can’t wait for you to see the inside.

 

Charlotte ran ahead and I followed. I was at the front door and walked inside. The inside looked fantastic. Lots of cool couches and things. Except there wasn’t any tv here. Which kinda made me upset but we weren’t here for tv. We were here to hideout.

mdoH7BY.png

 

Laura: So? What do you think hun?

Matthew: I love it.

Charlotte: I see you’ve done some… redecorating.

Laura: Well, while I was here, I decided to do that and clean and do a little gardening.

Charlotte: I’ve noticed.

Noel: I don’t mean to interrupt but is there anywhere Anna can lie down? Nostra isn’t feeling better… apparently.

Matthew: Shit. I forgot.

Laura: It’s alright hun. You 2 come with me upstairs. -takes Noel and Anna upstairs-

ay8WfkZ.png

 

Charlotte: You might already know this but Laura was kept with us at the orphanage as well until very recently.

Matthew: I figured. She never told me but I figured. I think I met her the day she was leaving.

Shelly: R-Really…?

Matthew: Mhm. I bumped into her and well… I crushed on her.

Charlotte: Alright. Keep the lovey dovey shit for you 2. Not everyone here wants to know the details.

Matthew: Ohh shush Charlotte.

Shelly: Umm, Charlotte? C-Can I ask you something?

Charlotte: What is it?

Shelly: Well… What did happen to your parents?

Matthew: Uhh Shell-

Charlotte: That’s not important right now.

Shelly: O-Oh, I’m sorry…

Laura: -comes back downstairs- Poor thing. She went right to sleep and is running an awful fever…

Z5uxryR.png

 

Matthew: That’s not good.

Charlotte: Don’t we have any medicine around here?

Laura: I checked all the cabinets and we’re all out. But I think the PokeMart in Spinel Town should be selling some.

Matthew: Spinel Town?

Charlotte: Alright. Matt, you should go into town and get some medicine for Anna.

Matthew: Wait. Me? Why should I go?

Charlotte: Just shush and listen to me. Spinel Town is completely separate from the city. Go back through the cave and the way Cain went earlier and you should be able to find it.

Matthew: I’m still waiting on the reason I should be the 1 to go.

Shelly: Umm, I think that there’s a Gym Leader there, if I’m not mistaken…

Matthew: … Sold.

Laura: Ohh hun! Before we go out, you should rest up 1st upstairs with me.

Charlotte: I don’t think there’s any time for… that.

Laura: What? No! I just wanna spend some time with my man.~

Matthew: Yea. We gotta talk though. It’s not bad. Just we need to talk.

Laura: Ohh. Alright. Meet you upstairs then Matthew.

 

Laura went running upstairs. I walked up the stairs and looked into the other bedrooms before finding the 1 Laura was in. She was sitting on the edge of the bed and patted a spot next to her, indicating for me to sit there next to her. I went over and sat down next to her. We each grabbed each other’s hands and held them.

2XFMZE3.png

 

Laura: I can’t wait to go with you to Spinel Town.

Matthew: About that-

Laura: It’ll be romantic to walk around the forest with you.

Matthew: But the thing is-

Laura: It’s been a while since we’ve been alone.

Matthew: Laura!

Laura: Ohh sorry. Were you trying to say something sweetie?

Matthew: -sighs- You should stay here babe?

Laura: What? Why?

Matthew: I just think that’d be the best idea for now.

Laura: Did… did I do something wrong?

Matthew: No. Of course not hun. You’ve been perfect. I just think you should stay here and keep an eye on everyone here. Plus, you just got your sister back. I think you 2 should spend some time with each other.

Laura: But… But hun.

Matthew: Come on Laura. You know it’s true. You need to spend time with her. I mean, you left here to go in search for her after all. And now that she’s free and here, you wanna just ignore her?

Laura: You’re… You’re right hun. I should spend some time with her.

Matthew: Thank you hun.

Laura: Just… be careful alright?

Matthew: I will be hun.

 

We both leaned into each other and kissed each other. We sat there for a couple of minutes talking. I knew I had to leave to get the medicine and my next badge. So, I got up, said goodbye to Laura and exited the bedroom. Before going though, I checked into Anna’s bedroom to see how she was doing. Noel looked at me with a worried look on his face.

Ter75d6.png

 

Matthew: Hey. How’s she doing?

Noel: She fell asleep as soon as she laid down. That man… When he took the pendant, she started to feel sick.

Matthew: Don’t worry. I’m gonna go get some medicine for her. And we’ll get back her pendant. -walks over to Anna- Get better soon dudette. I’m gonna make you feel better.

 

I exited the room and the house and started to travel towards Spinel Town. This felt weird being by myself again. No 1 around me. No 1 to talk to or joke around with. Just me. It was somewhat late out too so that was a little bit more weird. But I knew I had to get the medicine for Anna. Before entering through a passage, I saw a sign that said “Chrysolia Forest.” I walked through and saw that the train tracks somewhat disappeared. I had to try to go through these trees and little openings. But something weird was going on. Things were disappearing and appearing.

vDkeVE6.png

 

I’d go into 1 area, it’d be blocked off and when I’d go back, that way would be blocked off by a big tree that wasn’t there before.
ea0W21h.png

 

Maybe the tiredness was getting to me but I felt like it wasn’t that. Something was making these trees and debris disappearing and appearing. I was getting super annoyed with this. I just wanted the medicine and my next gym badge. I was finally seeing new area to the forest.

8VUH4tS.png

 

I started to run through the rest of the way, in hopes that I’d hopefully get through it. Finally, I saw a passage to another area. I stopped in front of it, got on my knees and bowed to it.

oc9l2AU.png

 

I got back up and walked through the passage and entered Spinel Town. It looked weird though. Like there were some things here that didn’t belong. For instance, there was a train in front of me and it was on no tracks. Someone saw me coming through and he came running up to me.

 

Stranger: No dude. You gotta go. It isn’t safe here.

Matthew: Why? What’s wrong?

Stranger: This town… Things just disappear and appear in different places. You gotta go man. Be safe.

Matthew: Well I came here for medicine. I can’t just leave. Excuse me.

 

I walked past the man and explored the town. He wasn’t lying. Things were zapping in and out all over the place here. I wondered what in the hell was going on but I just wanted to go do what I came here for and then go back to where everything made sense. I saw the PokeMart. I ran up to it.
AOOoEKF.png

 

As soon as I was like a step or 2 away, the whole mart disappeared. I stood there in disbelief.

 

Matthew: The… The mart… It just… Wha…

Random woman: Did the mart just disappear? Ohh well. I reckon it should show up somewhere not too far from here.

Matthew: …

REBORN CHARACTER RATES

Spoiler

Heather (8/10 NO CHANGE!) - We finally rescue everyone and she just decides to up and fly away. This sucks but... Maybe she'll recover on her own somehow. I hope she'll be better soon.

 

Cain (10/10 NO CHANGE!) - I'm gonna miss this dude so much. We've been through so much in the past couple of days. I'm glad he's gonna go make sure Heather is gonna be good though. That's a true friend right there. I look forward to our next encounter in the future.

 

Laura (10/10 NO CHANGE!) - I'm into Laura so much but she does need to spend some time with her sister. I don't want her to just be all up on me. She's gonna be even with this relationship and family. I don't want her to forget that. Still, it feels weird without her here next to me.

 

Shelly (9/10 NO CHANGE!) -It probably wasn't the best idea to ask someone what happened to their parents but she told me there was a Gym Leader where I'm supposed to go so... Sweet.

 

Charlotte (9/10 NO CHANGE!) - I feel hurt that Charlotte would accuse me of hurting her sister somehow in this relationship. But I can understand why. She cares for her. I'm glad they'll get to spend sometime with each other though.

 

Anna (10/10 NO CHANGE!) - Poor little girl. She just keeps to get sicker and sicker it seems. Oops. I mean Nostra. And it all started when Sirius took her pendant... I swear I'll get that back for her AND make her feel better. You know... I just thought of this but... she kind of feels like a little sister to me.

 

Noel +1 (7/10) - I've been wondering if he had a different mood from just being... meh. Glad to see he cares for his sister. I promise to both of them, I'll get her medicine to make her feel better and to get back her pendant. I wonder if he has any feelings with the pendant as well. Hmm.

I went into a building that was once next to the PokeMart and sat down on a couch.

iCdnBl5.png

 

I was contemplating what I was gonna do next. I came here for the medicine for Anna but the Mart had now disappeared. I also came here for a Gym Battle but I felt bad that I would only be able to come back with a badge but no medicine. But I decided I should just go for the badge and figure out what to do after. There was no point in being here and not go for the badge. I got up from the couch and walked outside. Unfortunately for me, it had started to rain.

R9Ynjms.png

 

 

Matthew: -sigh- Fucking rain.

 

 

I hastily walked over the rest of the town to search for the gym. The last building I saw seemed quite fancy and nice. Not something I saw very much since I came here some time ago. I looked over and saw a Gym sign. I was at the right place. I walked up to the door and was about to reach for the handle when the door flung open, smacking me right on my scarred cheek.

kwDUEHq.png

 

 

???: Luna?!

Matthew: Ohh Arceus! Son of a… fuck!

???: Ohh! My apologies!

Matthew: It’s alright. Just… It hit me in a bad spot. And no. I’m not this Luna person.

 

 

I looked up at the kid while still holding my cheek in pain. He looked weird. Glasses, nerdy like clothing and Arceus knows what was going on with his hair. As I stared at the boy, I could see his eyes fixated onto my face. And I knew what his next sentence was gonna be.

 

 

???: Holy smokes. What happened to your face?

Matthew: I got in trouble with a Garchomp.

???: Wow. That’s… insane.

Matthew: You’re telling me.

???: Well excuse me. I was supposed to investigate the source of a loud noise.

 

 

He walked around me and away from the house a bit and turned around looking to the roof of the house. I could see a confused look go over his face.

 

 

???: Well… That would do it.

 

 

I walked up to him and looked up to the roof of the house. I couldn’t believe my eyes.

 

 

Matthew: Is that-

???: Indeed it is. -walks up to the front door and shouts- Mother, the PokeMart seems to have appeared on top of the house!

??? #2: Say what now?

 

 

An older woman, still looking good for her age though, walked out next to Bennett. She was wearing somewhat of skin tight clothing and her hair was a color mixture of light blue and some kind of magenta color. These 2 were related? The woman walked out a bit and then looked up at the PokeMart that had plopped down on the roof of her house.

L7HgEYj.png

 

??? #2: So it has. Well, it explains why we couldn’t get the balcony door open before. -turns towards me- Ohh. Hello there. I didn’t notice you. Who might you be?

Matthew: My name is Matthew.

Serra: Hello there Matthew. My name is Serra. And I suppose I’m this town’s Gym Leader?

Matthew: Wait. You suppose?

Serra: Mhm. And as for the shop… Well, I’m afraid we might be out of luck there.

Matthew: Damn. I find it and I still can’t get to it.

Serra: I have an idea. Why don’t you come inside? You too Bennett.

Matthew: Alright. Thanks.

 

 

The 3 of us walked into the house. I couldn’t believe how nice it looked inside. It also basically only had the colors that were in Serra’s hair which was odd but it wasn’t my house. So I didn’t say anything. I walked up to them and went to go sit on the couch but Bennett pulled me to him standing in front of him.

IANxEQQ.png

 

Bennett: Greetings! My name is Bennett, as you’ve already heard. I’m a lepidopterist.

Matthew: You’re a what?

Bennett: A person who studies butterflies and moths.

Matthew: Ohh. That’s cool I suppose.

Bennett: It is! Something about how little insects can go from what they are to something so much more. It’s just so exciting!

Matthew: Ummm…

Bennett: Did you know that Cascoon have perfect memories?

Matthew: I did n-

Bennett: Despite never moving or doing anything, they’ll never forget a battle!

Matthew: Ok the-

Bennett: And once they evolve, they’re remarkably able to exact any form of retaliation for what happened earlier in their life! When you think about it, they truly are small geniuses-

Serra: Bennett, that’s enough. I think that’s quite enough for right now. You might be boring our guest.

Matthew (thinking to myself): Ohh thank merciful Neptune!

 

 

After listening to all of that, I sat down next to Serra. It was a bit of awkward silence there. Then she started to speak.

9g52NKx.png

 

Serra: I must ask this but-

Matthew: Incident with a Garchomp. I get asked that all the time.

Serra: I’m sorry about what happened to your face but that isn’t what I was going to ask.

Matthew: Ohh… Sorry. Continue then.

Serra: You’re a challenger to the Reborn League, right?

Matthew: Indeed I am. I’ll be up to 6 badges with my next Gym win.

Serra: Impressive. As I believe I have mentioned earlier, I am a Gym Leader. An Ice-Type Gym Leader.

Matthew: Ice-Type huh?

Bennett: Yes! And Luna is also a Gym Leader!

Serra: … Yes, she is, but we’re not talking about her right now, and she’s not here.

Matthew: Again with this girl?

Bennett: Matthew, have you at any point, seen a young girl with very pretty blonde hair and a fancy black and white dress? And also a really pretty… well everything?

Matthew: Uhhh… No?

Serra: Stop it Bennett. You’re making things uncomfortable here for Matthew. And myself to be honest. If she wants to come back, then she will.

Matthew: I know I shouldn’t ask but… who is she?

Serra: I guess I should explain. Luna is, or I guess was, my adopted daughter. Just randomly appeared 1 day. Apparently things here have penchant for that sort of thing. Anyways, she claimed that I was her mother.

 

 

I quickly glanced over to Bennett who seemed to be really excited over this conversation about this Luna person. While she might not have been related to him, it was kind of creepy that he had this fascination with his adopted sister. I continued listening to Serra’s story.

 

 

Serra: By the way, I am quite sure that is not the case. I’ve only had 1 child and he’s right there. Nonetheless though, I couldn’t turn her away. She actually was a pretty good girl but I can’t just go on playing “House” with her forever.

Matthew: It’s ok. I understand.

Serra: Anyways, she’s run off again. So that’s good… But then again, everything does seem to slip away from me eventually.

Matthew (thinking to himself): Did… Did she just make an ice pun?

Serra: I have no idea on how to go about finding her real parents. It’s not as if they’re just going to randomly appear at our doorstep 1 day.

 

 

As soon as she said that, the doorbell rang.

 

 

Matthew: That’s… That’s just weird.

Serra: Bennett, go answer the door for me please?

Bennett: Yes Mother.

 

 

Bennett went and answered the door, he came back beside his mother. I turned around and saw what seemed to be an old man wearing some kind of tan robe. Sirens started to go off in my head when I saw him.

GyIy3Xt.png

 

???: Prosperitas, Pax Pacis, Obsequium. Blessings of the Lord Arceus upon your house.

Matthew (under my breath): What the hell?

El: My name is El, a servant of our Lord Arceus.

Serra: Well hello and welcome El. How can I help you? I hope you aren’t trying to get into the PokeMart.

El: No my dear. I am here for a different reason. To look for my daughter.

Matthew (in my thoughts): Are you fucking kidding me? Everything Serra said about this Luna girl and now apparently, her father appears out of nowhere to claim her. This is just too… weird and cheesy somehow.

Bennett: Wait. You couldn’t possibly mean Luna could you?

El: Very good. You do know her.

Matthew: Well those 2 do. I’ve only just been told not that long ago about her.

El: Then I shan’t bother asking you any questions about her. My apologies if that sounded rude.

Matthew: It’s ok. -under my breath- I’d rather you not talk to me anyways.

El: Luna is a child who has lost the Lord’s light. A path of darkness she walks. She has turned her back on me, denouncing me as her father and ran away. I have come to reclaim her.

Serra: Well I am happy to hear that someone from her actual family has come searching for her. However, I’m afraid Luna has run away from here as well too.

El: Have you any idea where she may have run off to?

Serra: I don’t know. She didn’t say anything. She disappeared just as quickly as she came. I wish I could say the same for the PokeMart.

Matthew: I agree with you on that.

Serra: And as well as half the guys I been with.

Matthew:… This family just doesn’t care about keeping secrets or stuff like that to yourselves do you?

Bennett: Mom!

Serra: Are you sure she didn’t say anything to you before she left Bennett?

Bennett: What? Me? No. I mean, uhh… I don’t know…

El: Hmm… I see. Miss Serra Voclain correct? I have traveled a great distance to get here and I am very much distressed at having missed her company. Would it be alright if I rested here for a short while?

Serra: That shouldn’t be a problem. Actually, you came at an entertaining time. Matthew here is challenging me to a battle for my Gym Badge.

El: Is that so?

Serra: Bennett, show El to the spectators’ seats would you?

Bennett: Sure mom.

Serra: Matthew, I’ll prepare for your challenge so please meet me in the arena behind me. Best of luck to you.

 

 

With that, everyone left. I stood there trying to take in everything that had just happened. This was a weird family and I wanted to get away from them as fast as possible. Well, to be honest, I just wanted to get away from Bennett and El. Serra wasn’t really a problem. Bennett creeped me out as did El. I took a deep breath and headed for the doors up ahead of me. I went through and defeated the 2 trainers that were in the room. This puzzle confused me. I went up to 1 of the trainers and asked for help.

 

 

Matthew: Hey. Uhh, what’s this Gym’s puzzle?

Trainer: You gotta try to break through the mirrors. You’ll be able to continue through when you find the right 1.

Matthew: Ohh… Thanks.

 

 

I went up to the wall which was all covered in mirrors. I somehow didn’t notice that when I was in here earlier. I went up to a corner side.

I took a deep breath and punch the mirror in front of me. Luckily, the mirror shattered, revealing an entrance. But, that didn’t help the fact that it hurt the hell out of my hand.

0N6DJ0C.png

 

Matthew: Ow! Son of a- For the love of all that is good! Ugh!

 

 

With my hand in pain, I went into the next room and battled 2 more trainers and was faced with another wall of mirrors. Unlike the last room, the 1st spot wasn’t the entrance to the next room. In fact, I almost cracked every mirror before finding the right 1.

 

 

Matthew: Oh my Arceus. My hand hurts like a BITCH!

 

 

In the next room, I saw Bennett and El. Somehow, seeing those 2 made the pain in my hand feel less painful.

Bennett: Hey Matthew. You seem to be doing alright.

Matthew: I suppose you can say that.

Bennett: Well, I’ll cut to the chase. I would like to challenge you to a battle.

Matthew: You would huh? You’re that leopard thing right? A person that likes insects. So that means you’ll be using Bug Type Pokemon right?

Bennett: Correct. Just so you know, I always request to battle all of mother’s challengers before they officially battle her.

Matthew: You’d throw them off a bit by using Bug Types while they’d be prepared to battle Ice Types. Nice strategy.

Bennett: That’s not why I do it. I hope to be a Gym Leader 1 day and I believe this is the most efficient way of preparing myself.

Matthew: Hmm. I suppose that makes sense. -in my thoughts- No WAY would I wanna challenge this dude for a badge for Bug Types. Too weird for me.

Bennett: Now, allow me to test myself against you!

 

 

 

 

El: Impressive battle young ones.

Matthew: Thanks I guess.

El: I believe that the both of you have been gifted by Arceus’ light.

Bennett: I’m sorry sir. No disrespect but I don’t believe it’s any such “light.” I believe it is instead diligence and commitment.

Matthew: Surprisingly, I agree with you kid.

El: And such diligence will indeed take you far. Bennett, would you believe me if I told you that you were dreaming too small?

Matthew: Wait what?

Bennett: Excuse me? Too small sir?

El: Indeed. You say you want to be a Gym Leader but I believe that with your skills and determination, you could go as far as to join the Elite 4!

Matthew: Wait. How would you know that? And how could you even do-

Bennett: Tha-That’s unthinkable! The Elite 4? Me? Really? I mean, it sounds fantastic but as you saw, I still have a long way to go before then.

El: That maybe true young man but for someone of your dedication, I believe I could of service to you. Come. Let us leave your friend to their challenge. We should discuss the… details somewhere else. You may find yourself in a new position in due time.

Bennett: I… I can’t believe it. Do you really mean that sir!?

El: I do.

Bennett: Then please! Let’s go right away Mr. El! Follow me!

 

 

Bennett rushed passed me and out of the room. El followed but stopped and looked towards me.

1dNR7Zz.png

 

 

El: And Matthew, blessings to you as well. All is reflected in the eyes of the Lord. Please do remember this.

Matthew: Uhh, sure. No problem.

 

 

And with that, El walked off. This visit here just kept getting more crazy. Bennett could now become and Elite 4 Member and somehow this old dude was able to help him with that? I thought for a while about this and then it hit me like a Mach Punch to the gut.

 

 

Matthew (talking to myself out loud): Somehow, El must be… part of the Elite 4. That’s… insane!

 

 

I was still in shock but I then remembered why I was here in the 1st place. To get the Gym Badge from Serra. I walked up to the wall of mirrors and punched it. Again, I was unfortunate not to get it right the 1st hit. Luckily though, it didn’t take me as many tries as it did with the last room. I went to the next room and was finally in Serra’s Gym Arena. I walked up to her, holding my hand in pain.

0ggRMGF.png

 

Serra: Welcome to my Gym Battling Arena Matthew. This is where… Whoa. What happened to your hand?

Matthew: What kind of psychopath has a puzzle to where someone has to punch through mirrors to reach the Arena of a Gym Leader?!

Serra: Wait. Wait. YOU punched through them?

Matthew: Yea! What else was I supposed to do?!

Serra:… You were supposed to use your Pokemon to use Rock Smash on them.

Matthew:… Ohh… That actually makes more sense now…

Serra: -sigh- Well look, I don’t mind waiting for a bit until you feel better and my son and that El person doesn’t seem like they’re here yet. So if you need some time to let your hand heal before the battle, go and get it healed up.

Matthew: I think I may do that. Thanks. And sorry…

 

 

I exited the arena and the whole house and walked towards the PokeCenter. I decided that instead of just sitting around waiting for my hand to heal that I’d go train my Pokemon. As I was walking, Godra Goodra popped out of its PokeBall.

 

 

Matthew: Huh? Hey. What are you doing out of your ball?

Sliggoo: Sliggoooooo.

 

 

I looked onto the ground and saw a piece of Rare Candy. Before I could do anything, Godra Goodra slithered its way over and swalloed the candy down whole.

 

 

Matthew: Hey! Spit that out! You don’t know where that’s been!

 

 

I ran over but as I was about to get to it, she started to glow. I stopped in my tracks and jumped back a little from the sudden glowiness. I then watched as Sliggoo started to transform.

IT8RPEp.png

eynggWo.png

 

Matthew: No way… It’s evolving!

C16qluy.png

Gb2AzOW.png

5wHo0Ea.png

 

In a matter of minutes, Sliggoo was now a Goodra which finally made the nickname fit, might I add. I ran over to it and gave it a hug as it gave 1 back. When I stopped back, I felt the slime and stickiness all over me but that didn’t bother me. I had a Goodra on my team now. I was a bit confused on how it evolved though. Then it struck me. It was raining. And when Sliggoo levels up during a rainstorm, they evolve.

 

 

Matthew: Well, I guess eating that Rare Candy wasn’t a bad thing. But please don’t do that again.

Goodra: Goooodraaaa!

Matthew: Alright. Let’s get you back into your PokeBall.

 

 

I took out Godra Goodra’s PokeBall and returned it back. I then walked to the PokeCenter to heal my Pokemon and go train a bit before taking on Serra for her Gym Badge.

REBORN CHARACTER RATES

Bennett (3/10) - Definitely weird kid. Way too into bugs and way too into this Luna girl. I wouldn't be surprised if he was the reason she ran away from here. He has a strange obsession with her and was also technically her adopted brother.

 

Serra (7/10) - She seems like a nice lady. Seems like she loves her son even though he's a handful no doubt. She seems kind of sad though. Was it because of that Luna running away? She didn't seem to care when we were talking about her leaving. Well whatever the case, me and her are gonna battle for the Gym Badge!

 

El (1/10) - I have a very bad feeling about this El guy. I mean how can we even trust him when he says he's Luna's father? It could all be a trap. I don't think his intentions are good. And he's also apart of the Elite 4!? That's even more bad news!

An hour had passed since I left Serra’s Gym to go train my Pokemon, as well as heal my hand. My team had leveled up some and gotten stronger. When I made it back to Serra’s Gym, it was still raining. So I was glad to finally be out of the rain and into a house. Before I went into the room Serra was in, I noticed the computer that contacts Ame. I hadn’t talked nor seen her in a while. I pressed the button and Ame’s face popped up.

ay8YNlF.png

 

Ame: Matthew? Is that you?

Matthew: Yep. Long time no see Ame.

Ame: It’s been so long. I see you’re at Serra’s estate.

Matthew: Yea. It’s been 1 hell of a journey to get here.

Ame: I can only imagine. So anything new with yo- Wait… Whoa. What the heck happened to your cheek?

Matthew: Incident with a Garchomp.

Ame: Wait! You wait up against a Garchomp?!

Matthew: Well it’s not like I did it on purpose!

Ame: Wow… Well, it’ll at least be a cool scar.

Matthew: I suppose so. Ohh. And I’m also dating Laura.

Ame: Laura? You mean the member of the Elite 4 Laura?

Matthew: Yea… Is that a problem?

Ame: No. I just… I never expected her to be with someone. She always seems… Timid or afraid or something of that nature you know?

Matthew: Yea. I have to deal with that sometimes but I think she’s gotten good.

Ame: Well that’s great. I’m happy for you both Matt. Anyways, you prob want some pointers on Serra’s Gym right?

Matthew: Well, unless you can tell me something else besides light and beam attacks bounce back, missing a physical attack will cause the user to take damage and that evasion and critical hits are higher than normal, not really?

Ame: Umm… How did you know all of that?

Matthew: Her son Bennett.

Ame: Ahh. Yes. He always battles his mother’s challengers before they officially battle her. He wants to become and Gym Leader some day.

Matthew: Yea. I heard…

Ame: Well I guess the only info I can give you is that if you can shatter the mirrors somehow, her advantage will be gone.

Matthew: Well, I don’t know what would destroy the mirrors but thanks for the heads up there.

Ame: Alright. Well hey. It was nice talking to you again.

Matthew: It was nice talking to you too Ame.

Ame: Good luck Matthew. Bye!

Matthew: Later.

 

And with that, the call was over. I walked up through the rooms and finally made it to the area where I last saw Serra. She was still standing where she was last time but looked bored. I stopped at the opposite side of the arena and held a PokeBall in my hand. Serra noticed me and took her place as well.

CTAliNf.png

 

Serra: Took your sweet time didn’t you Matthew?

Matthew: I decided to get some training in while healing my hand which you can see is now all healed up.

Serra: Good. Let me formally introduce to you my arena. Welcome to my Gym.

Matthew: It looks nice… and shiny.

Serra: You, along with my others, may consider it vain, but I’ve always had a fond of mirrors. They reflect much more than appearances.

Matthew: Ohh don’t tell me you’re 1 of those people that things the reflection is a different version of you.

Serra: Of course not.

Matthew: Alright. Goo-

Serra: I’ve watched my whole life painted in a silver frame.

Matthew: Ohh… You’re 1 of THOSE people.

Serra: But that frame is not the same anymore. Splintered and shattered… Just how my life is now. Which is fine, I suppose.

Matthew: Jeesh… Are you ok?

Serra: I’m fine. Thanks. The Ice Type, it’s the most beautiful. Within reflections and crystal imperfections, there’s art.

Matthew: I suppose you’re right about that.

Serra: Ahh. My apologies. Enough about me. I’m sure you don’t wanna listen to an old doll ramble on.

Matthew: You’re not that old and you look fine.

Serra: Thank you for the kind words Matthew. -pulls out a PokeBall but in an elegance way- But know this. This will be over before you know it. Just like everything else.

 

 

 

After the winner of the battle had been determined, Serra sighed and closed her eyes. I was afraid I might have done something wrong but she opened them back up and a smile of some sort could be seen upon her face.

 

Serra: It seems I’ve already reached my breaking point.

Matthew: I don’t know about that. That was a VERY close battle Serra.

Serra: -walks over to me with a badge in her hand- Here you go Matthew. This Rime Badge badge is yours now.

Matthew: Wow…

6suLAiH.png

 

I looked at my new badge and smiled at it. I now had 6 badges. I took out my badge case and placed the Rime Badge inside.

 

Matthew: Thanks Serra.

Serra: You’re welcome. So, I suppose that’s the show. If-

 

At that moment, the whole house shook. It only lasted a couple of seconds but it was still kind of frightening.

 

Matthew: Again with that?

Serra: Who wants to bet that was the PokeCenter this time? Hell. Maybe the whole Grand Hall came down on us this time. I gotta go check it out.

 

Serra left the room to go investigate what made that noise. I stood in the same place for about a minute or 2 just in case it were to happen again. After nothing had happened, I walked back out and into the main room. I could see Serra was sitting down on the couch. I went past her to exit the house but I looked back at her and she didn’t seem to have any expression on her face. She seemed distant. I stopped and turned to her.

k1IixVR.png

 

Matthew: Serra? Is everything alright?

Serra: Well… The good news is that the PokeMart isn’t on the roof anymore.

Matthew: I wonder where it ended up at now.

Serra: Who knows. But if I had to guess, it shouldn’t be too far from here.

Matthew: Well I hope you’re right. I need to get medicine for a friend of mine.

Serra: Ahh. So that’s why you seemed annoyed you couldn’t get into the PokeMart. Well I hope you are able to find it and get the medicine for them.

Matthew: Thanks.

Serra: Anyways… the bad news is that Bennett isn’t here anymore.

Matthew: What? Why?

Serra: I guess that El person has some kind of connection with the league. My son said he’ll be studying with him to join the Elite 4.

Matthew: El… I don’t trust him.

Serra: Why?

Matthew: Something about him just gives me a bad vibe. And his mentioning of his daughter Luna… Just seems like a bad dude.

Serra: Hmm. Maybe… But still, my son in the Elite 4? That would be something.

Matthew: I mean I guess…

Serra: But I should feel happy for my son right? I should…

Matthew: Serra?

Serra: … Matthew, can I ask you for a favor?

Matthew: Yea. What’s up?

Serra: I don’t know if it’ll ever happen but if you ever run into him somewhere, please look out for him for me.

 

I looked into her eyes and could see the concern for her son. I could understand why she didn’t feel all that thrilled with him going off to the Elite 4. While he did creep me out, I didn’t want anything bad to happen to him.

 

Matthew: Yea… Yea sure.

Serra: Thanks. I’m sure he can take care of himself but… Well you could probably already see but he doesn’t always make the best choices.

Matthew: Yea. I could see that. I’ll look after him though. When or if I ever see him.

Serra: Thanks again Matthew… All things fade away it seems…

Matthew: Well… I’m gonna head out now. Thanks for the battle and badge and everything.

Serra: You’re welcome. Farewell Matthew.

 

And with that, I walked out the doors. Unfortunately for me it was still raining. So I had to walk through the town, through the weird ass forest to get back to the cave. But as I was getting to the entrance of the cave, I noticed a familiar blue building that wasn’t there before. And then it hit me.

 

Matthew: Oh my Arceus! The PokeMart got teleported here! I can get the medicine!

8uLadXG.png

 

I walked in and walked up to the cashier. Obviously, he felt scared and concerned.

rcgu17p.png

 

Matthew: Uhh… You doing alright buddy?

Cashier: I’ve been teleported Arceus knows how many times! It’s a frightening experience! So no! I can’t say that I am! Unlike that kid over there!

 

I looked over and saw a small child jumping up and down thrilled with this teleporting business. He seemed to be having a blast. But I could understand why the cashier would be scared.

 

Matthew: Well I could understand that… Buuuut could you give me some medicine please?

 

The guy gave me a sharp look. He sighed and went underneath the desk and got a bottle of liquid that would surely get Anna back to health.

 

Matthew: Thanks. How muc-

Cashier: Just go. On the house. I just need to figure out what to do.

Matthew: Uhh, ok… Thanks.

 

I quickly walked out of the PokeMart. That guy seemed to have gotten mad at me for asking him if I could buy something. But I couldn’t think about that right now. I had to get back to the house to get Anna better!

I raced through Tanzan Mountain and through the garden that led up through the house. I was happy that I was able to get my 6th badge and get the medicine for Anna but I was also exhausted. By the time I got back to the mansion, it was nighttime. It was also raining which didn’t help. I was looking forward to just giving Anna her medicine and having a good rest in a comfy bed with my girlfriend. I walked through the door but was a little surprised no 1 was downstairs. Then I remembered about Anna.

i1f50mf.png

 

Matthew: -thinking to myself- They must be up in her room making sure she’s ok.

 

 

I walked over to the steps and climbed them and entered Anna’s room where everyone was. I walked over to Laura and hugged her.

a9C1JRb.png

 

Laura: Hunny! You’re back! How are you doing? Did you get what you needed?

Matthew: I’m good but also tired. And yea. I got both my 6th badge and the medicine for Anna. Although wow. When I have a good rest, I have a lot to tell you guys.

Charlotte: Well how about you give Anna her medicine 1st.

Matthew: Ohh yea. -walks to the front of the bed- Hey Anna. Here’s some medicine for you.

MhDvLwz.png

 

Anna slowly opened up her eyes and looked at Matthew across from her bed.

 

 

Anna: Huh? You got medicine?

Matthew: -hands the medicine to Anna- I sure did.

Noel: It’ll make you feel better. So drink it.

Anna: Oh my gosh… Did you go and get this Matt?

Matthew: I sure did.

Anna: Thank you so much! I’m sure Nostra will really appreciate this!

Everyone: What?!

Anna: Here you go Nostra. This will make you feel better.

 

 

Anna tipped the bottle of medicine over and the liquid went all over the doll. I stood there in disbelief as I watched the medicine fall onto the doll.

 

 

Matthew: Ohh no. I’m gonna have to go get another bottle of medicine aren’t I?

Laura: Anna, stop that! What are you doing?! You really shouldn’t be pouring that onto your doll…

Noel: Anna! You’re gonna waste the medicine of you do that!

Anna: What do you mean wasting it? If I don’t have Nostra drink this, how will she get better. She’ll be sick even longer!

Charlotte: Ohh Anna. We’re not worried about Nostra. We’re worried about you.

 

 

But it was all too late. Anna had “given” the medicine to her doll. Everyone had a disappointed look on their face. Anna seemed confused.

 

 

Anna: Why do you guys look like that? Look! She drank it all! See?

Noel: It’s soaked.

Matthew: Not to mention the blanket and sheets are also wet from that too.

Anna: But she feels oh so much better now!

 

 

To the surprise to all of us, Anna jumped down from the bed onto the floor. Laura almost fell down. She seemed way better than a couple of minutes ago despite not being the 1 to “drink” the medicine.

O30ldNF.png

 

Anna: Thank you Matthew!

Matthew: Umm… You’re welcome I guess?

Anna: You saved Nostra’s life!

Noel: But she’s not-

Matthew: -whispering- Noel, remember what I said.

Noel: Ohh. Uh… Right. Umm… He sure did.

Charlotte: Well, she certainly seems to be feeling better. I’m not sure how but I feel better about it.

Laura: I guess that’s all that counts.

Matthew: It sure does hun.

Anna: Matthew, I’m sorry Nostra caused all this trouble! But I appreciate you going to get medicine for her!

Matthew: It’s no problem Anna. Like I said, I was happy to do it. Now it’s time for me to-

Anna: Now to make it up to you?

Matthew: Hmm? That’s ok Anna. I just rea-

Anna: Ohh I know! Noel! You and Nomos should have a Gym Battle with Matthew right now!

Matthew: Right no- It’s ok. I can wait til later.

Noel: Besides, it’s raining outside Anna and-

Anna: Come on Noel! I just know that it’s gonna be important that Awesome collects every badge really soon!

Matthew: I appreciate the gesture but I can really wait til tomo-

Anna: It only makes sense! We have 2 Gym Leaders right here!

Charlotte: Yea. Matt isn’t on my level yet but I wouldn’t mind seeing him have a Gym Battle now.

Matthew: But guys-

Anna: So you’ll do it right Noel?

Noel: Umm… -sigh- I guess so.

Anna: Yay!

Matthew: -whispering- What do you mean yes?!

Noel: -whispering- I’m just remembering what you said. Better to go along with her to make it better. Besides, you know her. She won’t stop til it happens.

Anna: Yay! Let’s go outside and watch Matt beat Noel for his Gym Badge!

 

 

Anna rushed out of the room and down the stairs. Everyone was left shocked at the events that just occurred.

 

 

Matthew: I will get you back for this Noel.

Noel: Ohh stop. It’s just a Gym Battle. Even if you lose, at least it’ll get her quiet for a few hours.

Matthew: Haha. If I lose? It doesn’t even sound like your sister has any faith in you at all. She literally told everyone to watch me beat you.

Noel: That’s not… You… Just come outside and we’ll do this already. -leaves the room and goes outside-

Laura: I… I have ceased to understand her… or any of this to be honest.

Charlotte: Me either. But that’s why she’s so interesting. Alright. Everyone, let’s get going.

Laura: Good luck Matt. You got this.

Matthew: Thanks babe.

 

 

Everyone walked down the stairs and out the doors where Anna and Noel were as well as the rain. I took my place on the opposite side of Noel. Something seemed different about Noel. He still seemed his normal self but he also seemed to have some kind of determination in his face. We each clutched a PokeBall into our hand.

4bz5Edp.png

 

 

Matthew: I wanted to get some rest and relaxation but I suppose beating you for your badge before a good rest will be even more satisfying.

Noel: Just because Anna said she wanted you to beat me for my badge doesn’t mean it’s going to happen Matthew.

Charlotte: Alrighty then. This battle will be a 6 on 6 Single Battle. Either trainer is allowed to make- Saphira!

Matthew: Who?

 

 

Everyone looked across the lake and saw something flying towards us at lightning speed. It flew passed us and then back down to us. It was a Dragonite with a girl on the back of it. She looked familiar to me though.

LRhCykS.png

 

 

Saphira: Charlotte. You’re here.

Charlotte: I’m surprised to see ya sis.

Saphira: And Anna, Noel. You all escaped. How?

Charlotte: Matthew and Shelly over here helped us. We’ve gotten away from the Doctor twice already. Aaannnd guess what el-

Saphira: Save it. It’s about to be 3 times.

Matthew: Huh? What do you mean?

Saphira: The Doctor. He’s coming here. Along with Team Meteor. And they’re coming now.

Shelly: W-Well what do we do?

Saphira: Well a group is coming across the lake. Which means-

Laura: Our only option of escape is cut off. What should we do now?

Matthew: Easy. We fight.

Saphira: -looks at me- This guy has the right attitude. Alright. Listen up everyone. Charlotte, Anna, Noel and uh… Umm… you girl.

Shelly: I-It’s umm… It’s actually-

Saphira: Not important right now. Get inside now and find somewhere to hide.

Charlotte: Wait what? You want me to hide? Hell no. I’m not going to go run and hide. It’ll be more fun to melt their faces off.

Matthew: I mean I have to agree. Why would you have her hide?

Saphira: You don’t get to have a word in this. The Doctor still has potential legal authority over you since you’re not an adult yet. Maybe we cn resolve the escape charge but we don’t want you to have to deal with resisting arrest twice. This is how it’s gonna be.

Charlotte: But-

Matthew: Charlotte!… She’s right.

Spahira: Laura and Matthew was it? I’m charging you 2 with defending the house. If ANYONE gets in… destroy them. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, is going to touch my family! Do you understand Matthew?

Matthew: Of course I do. I don’t want anything happening to you guys… Especially you Laura.

Spahira: Good. The Doctor is coming around the long way. Team Meteor, however, is on the water.

Matthew: Wow… Team Meteor is just getting more stupid everytime we have to deal with them.

Saphira: You’re right about that. I’m sure they think they’re being clever making sure we can’t escape but there’s 1 flaw in their plan with that.

Laura: What’s that?

Matthew: They’re vulnerable to attacks. Easy pickings for Saphira I’m guessing.

Saphira: Correct. I’m going ahead and take down as many of them as I can. You all know what to do right?

Everyone: Yes!

Saphira: Good. Alright Dragonite. Forward!

 

 

The Dragonite flew out towards the lake as we all made our way inside the house. I could already hear the sounds of moves being used and cries being let out. I didn’t dare look back though. We all gathered in the room to discuss a plan.

NsGVanz.png

 

 

Matthew: Alright. What are we gonna do here?

Noel: I’m not sure. There’s not really a lot of good hiding spots here. If anyone gets in, they’ll easily be able to find us.

Charlotte: That means that Matthew and Laura are our primary line of defense. Which is good. Laura is-

Matthew: No offense Charlotte but we already know she’s part of the Elite 4. We need to hurry this up.

Shelly: Umm… I have an I-idea…

Charlotte: Shoot.

Shelly: Well umm… we shouldn’t hide in the same place so we should maybe umm… split up?

Laura: That’s probably a good idea.

Anna: Ok! How about myself and Noel hide upstairs?

Charlotte: Then Shelly and me will find somewhere in the kitchen to hide.

Matthew: Alright. Laura, where do you wanna be? Down here or upstairs? Whichever you don’t choose, I’ll guard that area.

Laura: Umm… I’ll take upstairs and you’ll stay down here. Is that ok hun?

Matthew: Sounds good to me babe.

Laura: Good. Although, PLEASE try to be gentle with the living room.

Matthew: I’ll uhh… try my best hun.

Charlotte: Sounds like a plan.

 

 

Anna and Noel ran upstairs to hide as Charlotte and Shelly ran into the kitchen to hide. Laura and I stood in the living room for a couple more seconds.

 

 

Matthew: Alright. You ready for this hun?

Laura: Yes. Thank you Matthew.

Matthew: Anything for you. Ok. Now get upstairs fast.

Laura: Right.

 

 

We both hugged each other and then kissed. Laura then ran upstairs to guard the twins. I stood in the middle of the living room waiting for someone, anyone to come in. It was a bit nerve wrecking. I didn’t know what was gonna happen or who was gonna come through those doors. But shortly, I got my answer. It was Dr. Sigmund.

TrnfahL.png

 

Matthew: Great. It’s you.

Dr. Sigmund: Ahh. We meet again.

Matthew: I’m going to give you 1 chance. Just turn around and walk out the door and you won’t have to humiliate yourself.

Dr. Sigmund: Intriguing offer but I’m afraid I have to decline.

 

 

Just then, 2 orderlies that belonged to The Doctor came in and stood by his side. I grabbed a PokeBall from my belt.

 

 

Dr. Sigmund: See, I have no intention of extending the same mercy as when wet met last time.

Matthew: Well if I may be honest, I’m somewhat upset we didn’t have our little encounter.

Dr. Sigmund: -laughs- You are quite intriguing. But anyways, I am here to reclaim what you have stolen from me.

Matthew: Stolen? Wow. You talk as if they’re objects. Not humans. What happened that made you like this?

Dr. Sigmund: Silence! Those children! They belong at the orphanage! They are my property!

Matthew: Do you hear yourself talking? They’re your “property?” They are human beings.

Dr. Sigmund: It does not matter what they are. All that matters is that they come back. Orderlies? Go search the upper floor. I shall eliminate Matthew here.

Matthew: -watches as the orderlies walk up the stairs and shouts to Laura- Be on your guard Laura! Some orderlies are headed your way! -looks back to Dr. Sigmund- So… Ready to dance old man?

 

 

 

The battle was fierce but in the end, I came out the winner. However, the look on the Doctor’s expression on his face barely changed.

 

 

Dr. Sigmund: -laughs- Ahh. It doesn’t matter what you try to do. Any of you. Your petty resistance only delays the inevitable.

Matthew: What do you-

 

 

Before I could finish my sentence, the door swung open and a man came inside. I recognized who it was.

ZUptyVO.png

 

 

Matthew: Fuck. It’s you… Sirius.

Sirius: Yes. It is me. But blast that feral woman!

Dr. Sigmund: Sirius. Your men. Where are they?

Sirius: For all I know, they’re dead.

Matthew: Yea. It prob wasn’t the smartest idea to just try to cross the lake was it?

Sirius: You! Shut your mouth up! That accursed woman with the Dragonite… She just swooped down and shot at us as we were crossing the lake. Luckily for me though, I clipped her wings in return.

Matthew: No way…

Sirius: And then I drug myself out of the water. Now listen here Matthew. I am NOT leaving here empty-handed! Do you hear me?! I won’t allow it?! Where are the children?!

Matthew: Why the fuck would I tell you that? Unlike you, I’m not stupid.

Sirius: Hmm. Doctor, I can’t help but notice that there are 2 of us but only 1 of Matthew.

Matthew: But may I point out that 1 of you can’t use your team of Pokemon because they are knocked out.

Sirius: That hardly matters. So here’s what we’ll do. I’ll go over here and you Doctor go over there. Whoever Matthew decides to stop will be free to get the children.

 

 

As Sirius said, he went on 1 side of me as the Doctor went to the other side of me. I was in the middle. I had to think of what to do. I thought about the last time I had battled Sirius. I was victorious but I also had Cain at my side. And my team wasn’t anywhere near at full health to battle him again. So I decided to make sure the Doctor didn’t move.

AXGS01i.png

 

Matthew: -thinking to myself- I hope Laura can take care of herself against Sirius.

Sirius: -laughs- So that’s how it is is it? Fine. I’ll just take a look upstairs.

 

 

As I held the Doctor in place, the door again flung open but this time, it was Saphira. And she looked severely pissed. In fact, she looked so pissed that it made me weaken my grip on The Doctor.

Zclx5bK.png

 

Saphira: Sigmund.

Dr. Sigmund: Saphira. -laughs- This is great. With your presence here, that all but confirms that your sisters must be here after all. Ohh Charlotte?~ Where are you?~

Matthew: Do you honestly think that she’ll just-

Saphira: Sorry Sigmund but there’s no 1 here. Only me.

Matthew: A-And me!

Dr. Sigmund: Hmph. That’s “Doctor” to you.

Saphira: You? A doctor? No. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. You know what you are? A criminal. Is that a scar I see? I heard that she left 1 on you. It brings me joy to see that on you. I wanna ask you something. How does that make you feel? It has been a while… hasn’t it? But trust me Sigmind, I remember VERY well how “nicely” you treated my sisters and I back at the orphanage. And now? Now is the time I returned the favor. Hold still.

Dr. Sigmund: What… What are you-

Saphira: Come on out Dragonite! Use Hyper Beam!

Matthew: HOLY SHIT! -jumps for cover-

 

 

I jumped behind a bookcase as the Dragonite launched its Hyper Beam right at Dr. Sigmund. I didn’t see the attack launch but when I looked back, I could see no trace of Dr. Sigmund. All I saw was smoke, rubble and a huge hole in the wall.

x9Rru9x.png

 

Matthew: Whoa… Holy fuck.

Saphira: Hm. Well “Doctor,” I do believe we’ve made a break-through this session.

Matthew: That was intense.

Sirius: Poison Jab!

 

 

Out of nowhere, a Seviper slithered fast over towards Saphira and used the move it was told to use. In a matter of seconds, she fainted. I was shocked and horrified.

MxA0A8J.png

 

Matthew: What the… You-

Sirius: This is a day of misery. You there Matthew! You should be glad that that woman softened us up! Otherwise, I’d have ripped that girl to pieces upstairs. Although… Let’s just say that it’ll be hard to not think of me while you 2 hold hands. -laughs-

Matthew: Wait. What? What did you do to her?!

Sirius: You’ll see soon enough. But as I told you earlier, I am not leaving empty-handed. -walks over to Spahira- This girl. This… banshee… She believes she can protect her family? But will her family do her the same honor?

Matthew: You motherfucker…

Sirius: Well, I look forward to seeing you soon, Matthew. But this time, on our territory.

 

 

I couldn’t do anything but watch him pick her limp body up into his arms and walk out the door with her. I started running towards the door that leads to the upstairs when I ran into Laura coming downstairs.

kx9C5oj.png

 

 

Laura: Hunny! You’re ok!

Matthew: I am but what did that dude do to you!?

Laura: I’m fine. I-

 

 

I grabbed her hand and examined it. There was nothing wrong with her hand from what I could see but then I looked up her arm. There were bruises there. As if someone grabbed her by the wrist and squeezed really hard. She took her hand back and somewhat blushed.

h0qDZPa.png

 

Matthew: Why did he do that to you?

Laura: I… I don’t know. But I’ll be fine.

Matthew: I’m gonna smash his face in next time I see him.

Laura: No! It’s not worth it.

Matthew: Hunny, he hurt you. He hurt my woman. I’m not gonna let him get away with that. And if Saphira were here, I’m sure she’d say the same thing.

Laura: Wait. Where is my sister?

Matthew: Shit. You don’t know. Well… She got-

Laura: Oh no! -runs closer to where the hole in the wall is-

Matthew: I know it’s hard to hear this babe but-

Laura: The wall!

Matthew: She… Wait. The wall?

Laura: Ohh hun. I asked you to not mess up the room…

Matthew: That… This… 1st off, Spahira made that mess. Not me. 2nd off, Saphira was kidnapped by Sirius.

Laura: They took her instead of the kids? Why?

Charlotte: WOW. Big mistake on their part. -walks out of the kitchen- Knowing her, she’ll just destroy them from the inside-out.

fR5NWKi.png

 

Matthew: I think I agree with you. After seeing what she did to the Doctor. Sweet Arceus.

Laura: Well we shouldn’t just let them take her though.

Charlotte: Well obviously it’s a trap. The safest thing to do would be to just her escape. Anyways, everyone ready to go?

Laura: Huh? But didn’t you just say-

Charlotte: All I said was the it would be safest. But that’s not us. We’re family. And that means we’re going to get her back. If the roles were reversed, you KNOW she’d do the same for us.

 

 

Laura stood there for a couple of seconds thinking about it. And then she spoke.

 

 

Laura: You’re right Charlotte. But I’ll be the 1 going. And Matthew, if he wants to come.

Matthew: Hell yea I wanna come. I need to dish out some punishment for what they did to my girl’s wrist.

Charlotte: What? Why?

Laura: Well they were after you in the 1st place. Not me or Matt. So we’ll take care of this.

Charlotte: Ugh. No 1 ever lets me have any fun. Fine. Just… Don’t let anything happen to either of them, ok Matt?

Matthew: I won’t. I promise Charlotte.

Laura: Hmm…

Matthew: Is something on your mind Laura?

Laura: It’s just that… I think that when I came back here, I remember those men were building those machines in the mountain.

Charlotte: Maybe they took Saphira in there somewhere then.

Matthew: Yea. That has to be it.

Laura: Alright. Then it’s settled. Before we leave though, I know your team needs some resting up. So go heal them up. I’ll be waiting outside hun.

Matthew: Alright. See you soon sweetie.

 

 

I watched as Laura walked outside and then proceeded to go upstairs to heal my Pokemon. As I came back down, I could see Anna and Noel near the entrance way.

5OBVdbe.png

 

Matthew: Hey. Are you 2 doing ok?

Anna: We’re good.

Noel: Yea. Laura really protected us against that guy.

Matthew: Uhh… What’s with the look on your face Anna?

Noel: She was eavesdropping.

Anna: What?! No we weren’t! I mean… Maybe? Ok. It was really Nostra that was eavesdropping but not me!

Matthew: Ok. Ok. I believe you.

Anna: Ok. Well Nostra says good luck to rescuing the dragon lady and well…

Matthew: Yes?

Anna: Ohh yea! I remember now! She says that you shouldn’t catch Laura when she falls! Whatever that means. Between the 3 of us, Nostra can be a bit weird sometimes. Anyways, good luck!

 

 

Noel and I just stared at Anna for a few seconds and then I left the stairway and made my way to the door. But as I was walking, I couldn’t help but have those words be repeated in my mind over and over again. What did she mean by that?

REBORN CHARACTER RATES

Spoiler

Laura (10/10 NO CHANGE!) - I'm glad she was able to handle Sirius and protect Anna and Noel but... that sleezeball. He'll get what's coming to him for hurting her!

 

Anna (10/10 NO CHANGE!) - She still continues to amaze me. I think she amazes everyone. But I'm still confused with what she meant by don't catch Laura when she falls.

 

Noel (7/10 NO CHANGE!) - He seemed stand offish when Anna said I could defeat him. I mean I know I kind of teased him about it but... Well he got me into the mess with battling with him for his gym badge this late at night! I wanted to rest!

 

Dr. Connal +1 (1/10) - That psychotic maniac... STILL trying to get back his, in his words, "property." I'll give him this though... He was smart enough to battle me to weaken my team before Sirius came. I hate that so much!

 

Saphira (7/10) - She seems really cool and really loves her family. She does scare me somewhat though but that's just her personality I guess.

I walked outside to meet with Laura but I was shocked to see snow falling from the sky. About 10 minutes ago, it was raining. I noticed Laura staring up at the sky pondering this as well.

fQv6SMN.png

 

Matthew: This is… weird.

Laura: It really is. Could… Could Team Meteor somehow behind this?

Matthew: Well I mean… I don’t know. I haven’t been in this region long enough to know if this is a regular occurrence or not. Plus, it could be just a random Pokemon battle but… it might be.

Laura: Hmm… We’ll worry about that later. Right now, we need to find my sister.

Matthew: Right. You go ahead and I’ll catch up to you.

Laura: Alright. Ohh. And before I go… thanks for coming with me right now to rescue my sister.

Matthew: You don’t have to thank me hun. We’re together and she’s your family. It’d be wrong of me to not come.

Laura: -blushes- Well… I’ll run along now. Don’t be too far behind.

 

Laura ran off towards the mountain. I followed suit but a little slower. I entered the mountain and started to look around everyone inside for Laura. Eventually I found her. She was standing in front of a giant steel gate that was blocking the way in front of us.

cQE1ecg.png

 

Matthew: Well this is trouble. How are we supposed to past this?

Laura: They were here…

Matthew: Huh? Who were here?

Laura: This is where I saw the men before…

Matthew: Doesn’t shock me. They put up this giant gate here.

Laura: I wish Saphira was here… She would have used her Dragonite to blast through this. -starts sobbing-

Matthew: Hey hey. We’ll get her hun. We’ll find a way through this.

Laura: -sniffs- Y-Yea. You’re right…

 

Laura went up to the gate feeling it for a way to open it. She wasn’t paying attention to the ground and tripped over a rock landing on a bigger 1. The 2nd she fell onto the rock, the gate disappeared down into the ground.

pMyKdAR.png

 

Matthew: Whoa…

Laura: Ow! Ugh. Oh no! Now I’m all dirty!

Matthew: Really? We’re on a mission to save your sister and you’re gonna whine about you being dirty?

Laura: Shut up Matthew!

Matthew: Well in any case, it’s a good thing you fell onto that rock.

Laura: Huh? Why is that?

Matthew: Look in front of you.

Laura: Ohh? Ohh! I guess there was a switch there hidden in the rocks…

Matthew: Alright. You go on ahead. I’ll stay back here for a few seconds to make sure no 1 follows us and then I’ll follow suit.

Laura: Alright!

 

Laura went to the next area of the cave as I guarded the now exposed entrance. I was just about to go to where she was until I heard Laura shout something.

 

Laura: Come on out Lilligant!

 

I made 1 last look throughout the cave and ran towards the way Laura went.

 

Matthew: Laura?! Laura! Are you ok?!

 

I rushed in as fast as I could. When I got to where Laura was, I could see Lilligant out and 2 Team Meteor Grunts on the ground but not conscious.

9Z4r8tp.png

 

Matthew: Whoa whoa wait. What did you do to them?

Laura: I used Lilligant’s Sleep Powder on them.

Matthew: So they’re sleeping?

Laura: Yea. I thought might as well knock them out instead of battling them.

Matthew: Well, I hope you’re ready to battle. You know Team Meteor.

Laura: Right. I know. Alright. I’m gonna go through. Same plan as before?

Matthew: Yea. Just in case someone else comes through. Or if these 2 sleeping beauties decide to wake up early from their nap.

Laura: Alright. Be careful Matthew.

Matthew: You too Laura.

 

We leaned into each other and kissed. Laura glanced back at me before entering the place. As before, I stood guard by the entrance to make sure no 1 went in or if the 2 guards woke up. I decided that it was time for me to go in and so I did. I was taken back by how machinery the place looked.

vMMevhY.png

 

I guess I was expecting it to still look more like a cave. I started to go through the place. Many battles with Team Meteor Grunts occurred as well as solving puzzles to get around the place. I walked into a room and hid behind a room to take a break.

 

Matthew: Jeesh. Battled a lot already and the puzzles are wearing me out. Phew.

Laura: Matt?

B0J5Asb.png

Matthew: Laura! Ohh thank Arceus you’re alright!

Laura: I feel the same way with you.

Matthew: So you think there’s any significance of this place? Besides a huge resting place for those 2 Team Meteor Grunts I assume you put to sleep with Lilligant.

Laura: -laughs at my joke- Well looks like they just use this room to store these containers.

Matthew: Why do they need these containers anyways?

Laura: I’m not sure… But this cell right here. Something tells me the Saphira used to be locked up in here.

Matthew: Me thinks she used her Dragonite to get out of there.

Laura: This is both good and bad.

Matthew: Uhh… How is it both and not just good?

Laura: I mean I’m glad she got out of here but… now we don’t know where she is. She’s somewhere alone in this base.

Matthew: Yea and she’s probably kicking ass.

Laura: Maybe…

Matthew: Look, we’ll find her. I promise you that.

Laura: I hope you’re right.

Matthew: Alright. I think it’s time to split up again babe.

Laura: Yea. When you find her, come and find me.

Matthew: Do the same for me.

 

And with that, Laura left the room to explore the rest of the base. I decided to check the room just in case she didn’t see something that could have been useful. I decided to put the 2 sleeping Meteor Grunts into the other cell and lock it so they couldn’t get out. Then, I left the room and resumed my puzzle solving and Meteor Grunt battling journey through their base. I walked into a room with a big computer screen up on the wall. I looked towards the keyboards and saw a person with brightly colored hair. It was Saphira.

nbB5Mp3.png

 

Matthew: Saphira! I’m so glad you’re safe!

Saphira: Matthew. Damn. You shouldn’t have come here.

Matthew: Well, it wasn’t actually my idea. It was Laura’s. She’s somewhere in here too.

Saphira: Wait. She’s here too? That’s… unlike her. Still though, it would have been better if you both had just abandoned me.

Matthew: I think either way, someone was gonna come here to save you.

Saphira: Charlotte?

Matthew: Charlotte.

Saphira: Well now Laura’s in danger because she came here looking for me.

Matthew: What are you doing in here anyways?

Saphira: I’m trying to get into their security so I can take on the leader of Team Meteor. Just give me a moment.

 

Just then, 2 Team Meteor Grunts ran in to try to stop us. Saphira stopped for a few seconds, looked at them and then looked back at the computer screen.

ro2WCin.png

 

Matthew: Maybe it’s not such a bad thing I’m here after all huh?

Saphira: You’re right. Buy me some time Matthew!

Matthew: Don’t have to tell me twice! Come on you Meteor punks! Time to smash some faces in!

 

Matthew: Is that the best you 2 can do?

Saphira: Got it!

Team Meteor Grunt #1: Damnit! We couldn’t stop them in time!

fHW9RII.png

Saphira: Exactly. You can’t. Now… are you going to run or am I going to burn you 2 to a crisp?

Team Meteor Grunt #2: We… Uhh…

Saphira:… Boo.

Team Meteor Grunts: Ahh! -runs away-

Saphira: Pathetic.

Matthew: I wish I could do that.

Saphira: Let’s go find Team Meteor’s Leader’s room.

Mattthew: Wait wait. I think I should go ahead instead.

Saphire: No. I can-

Matthew: Laura is still in here remember? I’d defend her with my life on the line but if you can find her in time in case she’s in some kind of trouble, she’ll have more chance of survival with you by her side.

Saphira: Hmm… That is true.

Matthew: I’ll go to the Leader’s room and take care of them. You go find Laura. If you find her in time, we could all team up on them.

Saphira: That’s not a bad plan. Alright. We’ll go with yours.

Matthew: Good. See you soon.

 

Saphira left the room. I followed suit and explored more of the base. Soon, I found the main floor of the place.

3SWp06R.png

 

I had to battle many grunts to get access to computer screens to unlock the door. It took sometime but I finally was able to unlock it. As soon as I did, I saw Laura and Saphira zoom right into the room.

 

Saphira: Come on Matt!

Matthew: I-I’ll be right there!

 

I ran in after them. When we got into the room, I could see Dr. Sigmund and ZEL in there as well as an Abra in 1 of those PULSE Machines.

hoMhHcn.png

 

Matthew: -shocked- A PULSE Machine…

Saphira: Sigmund…

Dr. Sigmund: Saphira…

Saphira: You’re going to pay for everything you’ve done.

Dr. Sigmund: Is that so Saphira? And what exactly does that include?

Matthew: Wait. How are you even able to stand? I saw you get beamed through the wall by her Dragonite. You were literally just a couple of inches away from it.

Laura: Wait. The hole in the wall was because of Saphira and Dragonite?

Matthew: Babe, I told you that before we-

Saphira: Quiet you 2!

Dr. Sigmund: I really don’t see what I have done wrong. I mean I was only caring for the children that the city assigned to me.

Saphira: Caring? CARING?! You don’t know the meaning of the word. Do you honestly think that pinning a child down and lighting her up is caring for her?!

Matthew: Whoa…

Laura: Yea… It was bad…

Saphira: Everything you’ve done to me. Do you consider ANY of that caring for me?!

Matthew: Try to calm dow-

Saphira: Shut up Matthew! Doctor… Never, and I mean NEVER talk to me about caring.

Dr. Sigmund: You insolent little… I would not say such things if I were you Saphira… I have devoted my entire LIFE to learning how to care for those around me.

Matthew: -under my breath- You don’t do a good job at it.

Laura: -whispers to me- Hunny shush.

Dr. Sigmund: To be disrespected by such an… an… unruly little girl. I will NOT stand it!

Saphira: What do you plan on doing about it?

Dr. Sigmund: -backs up against the wall- But… Lizzy, Lizzy… No, I know. I won’t become angry.

Matthew: Umm… What is he doing?

Laura: Is he… Is he talking to himself? Again?

Matthew: Wait. He’s done this before!?

Dr. Sigmund: Nothing. It’s nothing.

Matthew:… Ok. Seriously. What the fuck is going on here?

Sirius: Doctor? Is something the matter?

 

At that moment, Sirius walked into the room and locked his eyes onto mine and vice versa. I could feel the anger building up in me and I imagined that he was doing the same thing.

rSta2ZF.png

 

Matthew & Sirius: You.

Matthew: Thought you’d just escape and get away from hurting Laura did you?

Saphira: Wait. He did WHAT to Laura?

Laura: It’s nothing. I-

Matthew: He grabbed her wrist and squeezed. It’s bruised.

Saphira: You motherfucker.

Sirius:… No. There are more pressing concerns right now. Move aside now.

Matthew: No.

Sirius: I do not have time for this. -pushes me aside-

Matthew: Ohh. Ohh that’s great. I’m so gonna mess you up now.

Sirius: ZEL, I’ve just received a communication.

ZeL: Y-You mean-

Sirius: Yes. Lin will be coming here shortly. She wants to observe our progress.

Dr. Sigmund: Lin…

Spahira: That name… Why does it sound so familiar?

Sirius: Familiar? Lin… She is the true leader of Team Meteor. Even Solaris answers to her.

 

Just hearing that name made my cheek start hurting. I still haven’t forgotten what he tried to do to me back on Mt. Pyrous. Laura saw the look on my face, came closer to me and nuzzled my shoulder. Saphira noticed this but her gaze returned back to Sirius.

 

Matthew: I hate Solaris.

Sirius: Ahh yes. I believe his Garchomp left you a little… deformity on your face right?

Matthew: Shut your mouth man.

zeL: Wait. N-Now though? But Abra still won’t listen to us…

Laura: That Abra seems like it’s in pain. What are you doing to it?

zeL: Well… we need to get into a certain place but it’s sealed tight so… we just figured maybe if we amplify Abra’s power and ask it nicely

Matthew: Seriously. You’re forcefully amplifying its power and then TRYING to ask it nicely to do something like that? Idiotic.

Saphira: I agree.

Zel: Shut your mouths. Of course it isn’t working. This stupid thing won’t listen to a single 1 of our damn commands! Constantly and constantly, it’s just causing trouble!

Matthew: Wait a minute… This place is close to Spinel Town. Is this the reason everything is freaking out over there?

zEl: Correct. But unlike previous operations, the objective was not to disturb the nearby areas. Everything that’s happened is because of the side-effect of Abra’s unfocused power.

Sirius: Enough ZEL! Don’t give the enemy intel on the mission here! What you should be doing is getting that thing tamed. Otherwise, Lin will have all of our heads.

Matthew: Umm… I’m not sure if you all have noticed but we’re still here.

Saphira: And we’re still busting up this party! Don’t think you can just ignore us.

Sirius: Ahh yes. My apologies. To make it up to you, you 3 will be our test subjects.

Laura: What…?

Matthew: I don’t like the sound of that.

Sirius: Go ahead ZEL.

Saphira: Allow me to finish what I started on the lake!

 

Saphira charged toward either Dr. Sigmund or Sirius, I wasn’t sure which to be honest, but as soon as she took 1 step forward, she instantly disappeared. Me and Laura looked around the room but she was nowhere to be seen. She was gone.

6AreyvR.png

 

Matthew: Holy shit…

Laura: S-Saphira? Where… where did she-

Sirius: Goodbye Saphira. I’ll enjoy not meeting you again. ZEL, if you wouldn’t mind making the others disappear as well?

Laura: What…?

Matthew: Hold on babe!

I awoke laying down on the ground. I sat up and looked around the cave I was in. There was some light coming into wherever I was but it wasn’t that much. I was almost in pitch blackness. I stood up and started walking around. I could notice some containers that looked the same as the ones that were in that room that Laura had seen the destroyed cell.

 

Matthew: Laura! Saphira! Can any of you hear me?!

 

I stayed silent hoping to hear someone reply back to me but I got nothing. No 1 answered back. I was scared and frightened at this point. I had no idea where I was and I was all alone. In fact, I was getting so scared, I couldn’t move. So there was only 1 thing I could do.

 

Matthew: F-Fuck… Wettham!

 

In that instant, I felt my soul switch with his and Wettham was now in control of my body.

 

Wehttam: YeEeEeEeEeEeEs! I am back in the world of the MORTALS! But… have you really called me out because of your fear of the darkness? -stomach grumbles- Alright. Alright. I guess this could count as being scared for your life. Although, tis pushing it a bit. But I’m only doing this until we get somewhere that has more light. Understand? -stomach grumbles calmly- Alright.

 

And with that, Wettham started to roam the cave. He eventually came across an entrance to another cave and went in. As he searched that cave, he saw something hot pink on the ground. He walked over and saw a person. It was Laura.

zLH8Jvf.png

 

Wehttam: Miss Laura! Are you alright?

Laura: Urgh… Where… where am I?

Wehttam: I’m not sure but it is mysterious.~

Laura: Wait… Matthew?! Hold on. You look like him but you sound different… Wehttam right?

Wehttam: Ahh. A morsel has identified me. This is absolutely WONDERFUL! Yes. It is I, Wehttam!

Laura: So that means that Matt got scared right?

Wehttam: Apparently he can’t handle darkness.

Laura: Hehe. Oops. Can he still hear me?

Wehttam: Yes. He can.

Laura: Ohh. I’m sorry Matt.

Wehttam: Something tells me he does not mind as long as you’re feeling secured and happy right now.

Laura: That does sound like him. Hehe. -looks at her clothes- Ew. My outfit is all dirty.

Wehttam: While I apologize for the what has happened to your clothing, I think we should find a way out of here.

Laura: Yea. You’re right. Let’s go Mat- I mean Wehttam.

 

They started walking through the cave searching for a way out or at least for more light. The smell was getting to Laura though.

 

Wehttam: Are you quite alright there Miss Laura?

Laura: I’m fine. It just smells awful down here.

Wehttam: Yes. It certainly doesn’t have that good smell I’ve been used to.

Laura: And all of this weird… looking… liquid on the ground. Is it some kind of acid?

Wehttam: I would assume not since it is not melting the ground away. This is a strange place indeed.

Laura: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7… Oooo! Can’t there be another 1 somewhere here?

Wehttam: I don’t mean to be nosy madam but what are you doing?

Laura: Ohh. I’m sorry. That must have been really weird. It’s just… I really hate the number 7.

Wehttam: Why is that my dear?

Laura: Well… it just really bothers me when there isn’t an even number of something. I know. It sounds weird but it’s how I’ve always been.

Wehttam: Doesn’t seem all that weird to me yeeees.

Laura: But I’ve always really liked the number 8. It’s just so relaxing to see something set up in 8 parts. Perfect symmetry. I hope that makes sense.

Wehttam: Of course it does. I believe everyone has a special quirk about them. No reason to be given a hard time about it.

Laura: Well Charlotte seems to like to give me 1 all the time.

Wehttam: Yes but from what I’ve seen with Matthew’s interactions with her, she seems to mean well. She just wants you at your best. She just doesn’t see that you could possibly already be there.

Laura: Hmm… I kind of hope I’m not. I mean… I don’t know. Hahaha. Something tells me she’d be laughing at me.

Wehttam: Are you alright Laura?

Laura: Yes yes. I am… There is a reason I hate the number 7.

Wehttam: Well I am all ears Laura. Proceeeeeed.~

Laura: Something 1 of the Meteors said… It reminded me of someone… I think they said “Lin is coming.” I once knew a girl named Lin, back at the orphanage a couple of years ago. She was a little girl. A little younger than Anna in fact. But she was terrifying. Truly terrifying. She would find out others’ secrets and extort them. It was so scary to see just how much pleasure she had from doing that. She may have been young but she was very manipulative. And what was even worse was that she was good at it.

Wehttam: So what did she say to you then?

Laura: Well whenever I finally had 8 of something, she’d take it and then break it, leaving me with 7. And that’s why I hate it.

Wehttam: I am sorry that happened to you Laura. Whatever happened to her though?

Laura: Lin? I’m not sure. In fact, no 1 knows. 1 day she pulled a trick on Sigmund and he got really mad at her. He took her upstairs, locked us in our cells and… we never saw her again. Some of the kids say she escaped while others think the Doctor killed her.

Wehttam: What do you think happened?

Laura: Me? Uhh… I don’t really know. But I know 1 thing. No way is she associated with Team Meteor. She’d be too young…. right?

Wehttam: Well I don’t know her age so I can’t confirm or deny of this possibility. But I think we have spent enough time in this spoOoOoOoky cave long enough does thou agree?

Laura: Yea. You’re right. Let’s find a way out of here.

 

Laura and Wehttam started walking together looking for a way out of the cave or at least for a source of light. Wehttam looked over to Laura and could tell she seemed kind of sad.

rqAsGjv.png

 

Wehttam: Is everything alright?

Laura: Yea. I just feel bad that I talked so long down here and wasted our time.

Wehttam: Please do not apologize. It is WONDERFUL to get stuff out so that you shall feel better on the inside. The soul needs it.

Laura: Heh. Well thanks Wehttam. I feel a little better. Ohh! I almost forgot. Saphira got teleported away too.

Wehttam: Do not worry. We shall find her. Whether I am here or Matthew takes over.

Laura: Yea. I hope she’s ok. I mean she’s tough and all but we’ve never been teleported before.

Wehttam: I understand.

 

As they continued for a way out, they kept feeling ground shake. But unlike in Tanzan Mountain, the quakes were way more rougher and harder down here. They came to a stop in front of another cave entrance but also holding onto something to make sure they didn’t fall.

 

Wehttam: These earthquakes are not WONDERFUL!

Laura: They aren’t but it’s interesting. They’re like the ones that’s been going on in Chrysolia. Which means… Which means we can’t be far from Tanzan Mountain! But they’re also stronger down here. Could we be near their source? Come on. Let’s go!

Wehttam: Ahh. There’s light up ahead. You go further and you shall be reunited with Matthew.

Laura: Ahh. I miss him. Can’t wait to hug him. I mean not that I don’t want to hug you. I, umm…

Wehttam: Haha. You need not to be so scared of what has been said. I know what thou means.

Laura: Well it’s been nice getting to speak with you. I’ll see you again maybe.

Wehttam: Farewell Laura! It was a pleasure spending time with you. And may I say you and Matthew make a very sweet couple. YeEeEeEeEs.~

 

Laura blushed and then ran up to the entrance and continued on. Wehttam went through and was greeted with light. He smiled and put his hand on his chest.

rfGEuKs.png

 

Wehttam: Well Matthew, light can be seen. It is time to come back to the surface of your body and regain control.

 

And with that, I had retaken control of my body. I stretched a bit. It had been a while since I had last done that. After that, I ran up and finally caught up to Laura.

R5lyw3v.png

 

Matthew: Hey hun.

Laura: Matthew! -hugs him- I’ve missed you.

Matthew: Me too babe.

Laura: So I take it you were afraid of the dark. -giggles cutely-

Matthew: Ohh shush. I’m just glad I can actually see stuff right now. But… Where do we go?

Laura: I’m not sure. I hope this isn’t a dead end.

Saphire: Laura? Matthew? Is that you?

Laura: Saphira?! Are you down there?!

Saphira: Yea. I’m stuck at the bottom of this chasm.

Matthew: Wait. How did you know we were up here?

Saphira: The echo is enough for me to hear the 2 of you.

Laura: Ohh. Are you ok?

Saphira: I’m good but there doesn’t seem like a way up from here. And it’s too narrow down here to try to fly.

 

Another earthquake happened. Laura almost fell down into the chasm but I was able to catch her in time and pulled her back up.

 

Matthew: Holy shit! Are you ok hun?

Laura: Yea… Yea I think so. Thank you.

Saphira:… And then there’s that. Are you 2 ok?

Matthew: We’re good but what do we do now?

Saphira: I’m not sure but I know 1 thing. The earthquakes are really bad around here.

Laura: Maybe if we can find the source of the earthquakes, then maybe we could help all of Chrysolia!

Matthew: We probably could.

Saphira: Sounds like you 2 already have a plan. Take a look then. I’ll keep trying to look for some way to climb up.

Laura: Alright! Come on Matt!

Matthew: Alrig- -earthquake happens again- Wha-wha-WHOOOOOAAAAAAAA!

Laura: Matt? Matt no!

 

As soon as the earthquake hit, I lost my balance and started to fall into the chasm below where Saphira was at. I didn’t know what to do except for 1 thing.

g52jgiR.png

 

Matthew: TongueClumsy! HELLLLLLP!

 

Gligar came out of its PokeBall and swooped down towards me as fast as he could. What happened next though shocked me. It couldn’t get to me in time but it touched something on the side of the cliff and it started to glow.

P4M7vHx.png

2AKGTZo.png

fO1GQvy.png

 

I didn’t know what was happening. Now I was worried for my life and for my Gligar’s life. And I watched as it started to change.

XOJ4cq9.png

UnUgZ7M.png

icYOxvB.png

 

Soon, it looked completely different. Next thing I knew, something was flying towards me fast. All I did was close my eyes and waited for something to happen. I felt my hands grab onto something and I felt myself starting to go upwards rather than downwards. I opened my eyes and could see that I was now floating in mid-air. When I looked at what I was holding onto, I was surprised.

C2YpbJS.png

 

Matthew: Ton… TongueClumsy?

Gliscor: Gli-Gliscor!

 

Gliscor landed back onto where I was before falling. Laura ran over to me and hugged me while sobbing. I returned the hug and wiped away her tears. We both smiled at each other and then back at Gliscor, which was also smiling back at us but, of course, with its tongue out.

LM8ZcFo.png

 

Laura: I thought you only had a Gligar?

Matthew: I did too.

Laura: Did you throw a Razor Fang to it?

Matthew: No. All I did was well… fall. But it did touch something on the wall when it was flying down trying to catch me.

Laura: It must have been a Razor Fang then. That is insanely lucky.

Matthew: Yea. Thanks TongueClumsy. You seriously saved me there.

Gliscor: Gliscor!

Laura: Well, now that that is over, let’s try to find a way out of here.

Matthew: Yea. That was too close for comfort. You go ahead and I’ll catch up with you.

 

Laura did as I suggested and proceeded down the way we came from. I patted Gliscor on the head and then returned it back to its PokeBall. I walked back down the path I was on before but it was different. Somehow, a new path had opened up going from left to right. Cautiously, I followed that trail all the way down and again met up with Laura. She seemed confused as well.

6QKPW3r.png

 

Matthew: I’m not losing my mind right? That pathway just appeared from nowhere…

Laura: Yea… I don’t get it. It wasn’t there before…

Saphira: Hey. Making any progress up there?

Matthew: Well yea but-

Saphira: But what?

Laura: A new passage just randomly popped up.

Saphira: That doesn’t sound good. Whatever did that would have to be extremely strong and huge too.

Matthew: Great. More things to be worried about.

Spahira: Just be on your guard you 2. I’m going to keep moving.

Laura: Alright! Maybe we can meet up with her somehow.

 

Laura zoomed off to see if there was a way out/to see if we could somehow get to Saphira. I stayed behind and checked to see if there was a way for someone to climb up but there wasn’t. I left and was again greeted with a new passage way opened up. It was closer to where I just was. I went downward and met up with Laura.

xsngMku.png

 

Laura: Damn. Another dead end…

Matthew: And another new passage way…

Laura: How big is this chasm anyways?

Saphira: I have no idea but it smells awful down here. Downright putrid.

Laura: Huh? Why?

Saphira: There’s some kind of industrial fluids down here.

Matthew: Hmm… Maybe it’s from those containers we saw before.

Laura: Ohh yea!

Saphira: They look like the containers from their base. Some kind of energy byproduct.

Laura: But that doesn’t make any sense. How could it have gotten down here?

Matthew: You know, I wouldn’t be surprised if that Abra was the cause of all of this.

Saphira: I agree. It also means we’re not far from their base. Actually, now that I’m looking at these stones, I’d say we’re somewhere in the depths of Tanzan Mountain.

Matthew: What if… What if all this energy byproduct stuff is making the wild Pokemon in here upset?

Saphira: That’s not a bad idea. It could be why there’s a lot of earthquakes here lately. Whatever it is, it must be trying to retaliate against the Meteors for disrupting their home with this toxicity.

Laura: That’s horrible! So it’s Team Meteor’s fault!

Saphira: Yes. But regardless, we need to keep moving. There’s got to be an exit somewhere.

 

Laura raced to find an exit. I never seen her run so fast. Again, I inspected the area I was at and again, there was no way for anyone to climb up or down this cliff. Suddenly, I heard a loud crash and a scream.

 

Laura: AAAHHH!!!

Matthew: The fuck?! Laura?!

Spahira: Laura, are you alright…?! Laura?!

 

The 2 of us stayed silent for a couple of seconds hoping to here her confirm that she was alright. But that’s not what happened. We didn’t hear a thing.

 

Spahira: Matthew! Go find her now!

Matthew: On my way!

 

I darted my way up and noticed yet again another new passage way that had just opened up. I ran down that way and in the distance, I could see Laura face down on the ground. The earthquakes were getting worse as I was reaching my way to her. I finally got to her and knelt down beside her.

JpO7OpI.png

 

Matthew: Laura?! Are you alright?! Come on! Wake up! Laura!

Saphira: Matt, can you still hear me?! How is she?!

Matthew: She’s alright! Still breathing but she’s unconscious!

Saphira: Damn! Listen, I don’t know what it is but it’s moving fast! Do whatever you have to do but don’t let Laura- Ahh!

Matthew: What?! What is it?!

Saphira: It’s headed your way! Protect Laura!

Matthew: Right!

 

I stood up and got in front of Laura and stood in position. I didn’t know what was about to happen or what was coming but I knew that I had to protect Laura at all costs. I could feel the ground beneath me move. I could see something rising from the chasm below. It was silver but really gigantic. When its head rose up more for me to see it, I knew what it was.

cadh78o.png

 

Matthew: Holy shit… That’s a big ass Steelix!

Steelix: Raarrrrgh!

Saphira: That’s what has to be causing the earthquakes! If we beat it, a huge burden will surely be lifted! You subdue it and I’ll get into position!

Matthew: Get into position?! Position for what?! Saphira?! Fuck man! -looks back at Laura- Don’t worry babe! I’ll protect you! -looks back at Steelix- Come on you big dumb steel snake thing! Bring it on!

Steelix: Raarrrgh!!!

 

 

It attacked. It was a fierce battle but I was able to overcome it. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t so sure I could pull it off but I was so glad I did. The Steelix groaned in pain and slid back down into the chasm. I sighed in release but then I could hear someone.

 

Saphira: Giddy-up, you dumb beast!

mnfuzOz.png

Matthew: Whoa! How did you-
Saphira: No time for that! Get Laura and bring her here! We’re gonna get out of here!

Matthew: Right!

 

I picked up Laura and held her in my arms. I walked her over to the edge of the cliff and hopped onto Steelix’s head where Saphire was. She had it smash its head against the stone wall and we were able to exit from the bottom of the mountain. By that time, Laura was conscious.

 

Laura: Oogh… What happened?

Matthew: I’m not sure but whatever did happen knocked you out. I protected you from a big Steelix, which we’re actually riding on now.

Laura: Ohh thank you Matthew! -kisses him- And thank you Saphira.

Saphira: We’re family. I always protect my family. But let’s get off of this thing and go out there. It’ll be easier to talk and discuss what to do now.

 

We followed her plan and exited out back to where Laura had 1st put the 2 Meteor Guards to sleep, but they weren’t there anymore. We gathered around each other and discussed our next move.

zslvVuM.png

 

Saphira: Alright. Here’s the plan. Team Meteor needs to be stopped and Laura needs to be taken home.

Laura: It’s not that far Saphira. I can easily get there by my-

Saphira: No. You just regained consciousness. We don’t need you passing out while walking home from possible unknown injuries. I’m not taking any risks of you getting hurt again.

Laura: Saphira, please. I’m fi-

Matthew: No. Listen to her babe. I was worried about that too. Let her take you. I’ll take care of Team Meteor while she takes you home.

Laura: Matt… Alright. Fine.

Saphira: I’m sure you’ll have no trouble with the PULSE Abra and Meteor. I’ll get back here as soon as I can. When you terminate it, get out of there as soon as possible.

Matthew: That was the plan. But from the sound of what they were saying before, their real leader should be here anytime now.

Saphira: And if she gets here, it only means more trouble for us.

Laura: Be careful hun.

Matthew: I will girl. -hugs her- Go back home now.

Saphira: Actually, step outside of the cave and wait for me. I wanna talk to Matt for a second.

Laura: Umm… Ok then. -leaves Matt and Saphira by themselves-

7DFbMEu.png

Matthew: Uhh… Did I do something-

Saphira: You 2 are together right? Boyfriend and girlfriend?

Matthew: Yes?

Saphira: Hmm. I see.

Matthew: Is everything al-

Saphira: It’s good to see her getting out of her shell. And she’s definitely changed. She would have never have tried to do something like that before but you… you make her wanna do more. I thank you for that.

Matthew: Well… you’re welcome.

Saphira: I’m sure you 2 have only been together for a little bit of time but from everything I’ve seen you do for not only me but her today… I say you feel like family to me. Somewhat.

Matthew: Ohh… Well thanks for that. I don’t know what to say.

Saphira: Say nothing. But before I go to take my sister home, let me say this. If you break her heart in any way, you’ll have to answer to me. Do I make myself clear?

Matthew: Yes. Y-Yes you do.

Saphira: Good. Now let’s follow through with the plan.

 

Saphira left to take Laura home. I stood there for a moment. I couldn’t believe that she felt as if I was part of the family. I felt good inside. I took a deep breath and entered back into the base. Luckily, the puzzles seemed to have been turned off so it didn’t take me long to get back to the room with the PULSE Abra. When I walked in, I heard ZEL yelling at the Abra.

 

Zel: Gah! Behave you stupid vermin! Behave!

zeL: Umm… Please listen to us Mr. Abra?

 

The Abra sat there for a second and then teleported ZEL to a different part of the room. I almost let out a laugh.

 

Dr. Sigmund: I do believe that was Abra’s way of politely declining.

Zel: You little sh-

Matthew: Hey. Remember me?

Zel: Wait. You… You made it back? Damn. This thing is really useless.

fGuM1U7.png

Matthew: Or it just doesn’t want to deal with you.

Dr. Sigmund: Pardon my interruption here but maybe it would be best to just terminate the project before this “Lin” arrives.

Matthew: Hey. For once, I can actually agree with you on something Doctor. Now if only you weren’t a bad dude-

zEl: Shush. But that might be the better option. This level of uncontrolled power would indeed be unacceptable.

zeL: B-But is it really a good thing to hurt the Abra? I mean we put it through so much.

Zel: Well we can’t do anything at all if we can’t even get close enough to deactivate the machine without having that stupid thing making us disappearing and reappearing over and over again!

 

Once again, the Abra teleported ZEL to another part of the room. This time, I couldn’t help but utter a laugh. This was starting to become entertaining.

 

Zel: I don’t need your sass Abra! And I certainly don’t need to see you laughing at us Matt!

Matthew: Look, it’s just too funny.

zEl: Hmm. I have an idea. You wish to spare the people of Spinel Town of this chaos right Matthew?

Matthew: Well yea but-

Zel: Good idea. We’ll have Matt deal with it!

Matthew: I’m sorry. What now?

Zel: Well we can’t deal with it. It’s up to you. I mean you DO want to save Spinel Town right? It’ll work out fot eh both of us and-

 

For the 3rd time in a row, Abra teleported ZEL again but this time, they didn’t reappear just as fast as they disappeared. Even I got worried for a second.

 

Dr. Sigmund: Uhh… ZEL?

 

Luckily though, ZEL reappeared behind me. I turned and saw an angry expression on their face but I still couldn’t help but laugh.

 

Zel: Ugh! That is ENOUGH! Matt, deal with this!

Matthew: I don’t really like this situation. I feel like I’m helping you more than taking you down.

zEl: Think of it like this. You’re helping a Pokemon out of a horrible situation and there won’t be any backlash from it. Plus, the chaos situation in Chrysolia will be put to rest.

Matthew: Fine. I guess I have no other choice.

 

Abra was freed but started to transform. When it was done, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It looked like it had knight armor on it.

 

Matthew: The hell is this?

Zel: Shut up and beat it already!

Matthew: Jeesh. Alright alright.

 

 

It was a surprisingly difficult battle. The armor the Abra was wearing seemed to have given it additional Defensive stats but eventually I was able to beat it.

 

Matthew: Damn. That Abra destroyed have my team!

Dr. Sigmund: In any case, that seems to be a relief. Does this mean that nearby regions will return to normal Eve?

zEl: Any objects that have been moved by Abra’s energy previously will remain where they are.

Matthew: You better hope that nothing else teleports.

zEl: Well unfortunately, there are likely some objects that will still move since they have been imbued with the unstable psychic energy. But I assure you that no more instances of such things well be created again. And slowly, Chrysolia will calm itself.

Matthew: Well I suppose that’s better than nothing positive happening.

Sirius: Lin has just arrived.

HsEtHTB.png

Matthew: -turns to face Sirius- Great. Just great. Everytime we come face to face, my Pokemon are too weak to battle you. Why is it-

Sirius: Matthew’s back?

zeL: Umm… Yes. He helped subdue the Abra, so…

Sirius: Blast it all! Ugh. Lin cannot know that there’s an enemy among us. She will be furious.

Matthew: Hmm. I can see the fear in your eyes with you just mentioning her name…

Sirius: You have no idea… Right. Matthew. I don’t like saying this as much as you’re going to hate hearing this but for right now, you’re going to pretend to be among our ranks.

Matthew: What do you mean?

Sirius: You’re a new recruit of Team Meteor for right now.

Matthew: Ohh hell no. No way am I doing it.

Sirius: Listen, unless you want to be obliterated where you stand, you will do this. This is a temporary compromise. We’ll be saving both our skins. Got it?

 

I thought about it for a moment. I HATED the sound of even pretending to be apart of Team Meteor. I thought about maybe making a break for it but if I got caught, I would only have had half my team to take anyone on and I didn’t want to take this chance. Plus, with Sirius even thinking of this idea, Lin must be a scary person. So even though I hated the thought of this pretend join up, I reluctantly agreed.

 

Matthew:… Fine.

Sirius. Good. Now stand back. She’ll be here any second.

 

I backed into the room and looked towards the door waiting for this Lin to arrive. When she arrived, I must admit, I felt very scared. I wanted to call out Wehttam but I didn’t want her to know about that. At least not right now. She had weird hair that was green and weird clothing. But something was bothering me about her.

iKFN6Bh.png

 

Lin: Report.

Sirius: We experimented with using the PULSE to amplify Abra’s powers to teleport a party into the heart of the ruin.

Matthew: -thinking to myself- A ruin? Just what are they planning?

Sirius: Unfortunately, in the end, Abra’s power could not be controlled and the project was terminated.

Lin: Incompetent. Hmm. Why are these here?

Sirius: Ahh yes. This is Matthew… A new recruit. H ehas been lending a hand with the PULSE-Abra project.

Lin: Ohh Sirius. Lying becomes you.

Sirius: -nervous- I… I beg your pardon?

Lin: What about the other?

Dr. Sigmund: -clears his throat- I apologize for the tardy introduction. My name is Dr. Sigmund. I am a psychiatrist to Reborn City and proud administrator of the city orphanage.

Sirius: A hh yes. He has been a great asset to us. Thanks to his help, we have now obtained 2 of the 4 keys. The Ruby and Amethyst.

Lin: Doctor.

Dr. Sigmund: Forgive me for asking but have we somehow met before? You seem… familiar.

Lin: Impossible.

Dr. Sigmund: Y-Yes.

Sirius: As for the other keys, we are still searching for them. Solaris has a lead on the Sapphire Elias is currently tracking down Emerald.

Matthew: -thinking to myself- Wait. Elias…? El… I knew it. He’s working for Team Meteor. AND he’s using Bennett. This is bad.

 

Just then, a huge explosion could be heard and the entire place shook. Everybody except for Lin seemed shocked of the blast. Just then, a Meteor Grunt walked into the door.

 

Team Meteor Grunt: Sorry for the intrusion Commander but a giant Steelix has just breached the side of the base! It’s tearing it apart!

Sirius: A… what?

Matthew: -thinking to myself- That must be Saphira still controlling that Steelix. Guess she’s back.

 

A loud noise was heard again. Everyone was trying to keep standing except for Lin. Her eyes were locking onto mine. I could feel fear creeping deeper into me. But then it hit me. I remembered why she looked so familiar.

 

Matthew: -thinking to myself- She… she’s 1 of the people I saw on that computer screen at Shade’s Gym. She’s going to blow up somehow… I would feel bad for her but she’s the bad guy.

Lin: Matthew was it? You wouldn’t happen to know anything about this hmm?

Matthew: -nervous- The-The what? Steelix? No. I’ve been uhh… here the whole time…

Lin: Mhm. Size does not equate to strength. I shall deal with this.

 

Lin left. I could only hope that Saphira could somehow take care of herself. Suddenly, There were a series of explosions and loud noises. The place was moving.

 

Sirius: Matthew, leave now. If she doesn’t see you again, it’s better for everyone involved. Get going. This will be your only chance.

Matthew: Fine. But next time we see each other, it’s going to be a different story.

Sirius: Just get going already!

 

I ran through the door and out of the base as fast as I could. I could still hear all the fighting that was going on with Saphira and Lin. I was worried for Saphira’s safety but I knew she could handle herself. When I finally got into the main part of Tanzan Mountain, I heard a very very loud explosion and a loud thud. I didn’t want to think of what could have happened. So I just ran all the way back to the mansion.

REBORN CHARACTER RATES

Spoiler

Laura (10/10 NO CHANGE!) - Man. This rescue mission was SO tense. But... She seems to have changed. I'm not totally sure if what Saphira said was true but if it is... That's awesome. My girlfriend is awesome.

 

Saphira +1 (8/10) - Wow. She was able to get out of a nasty situation. Although, I do like that she said she felt like I was at least somewhat part of the family and I'm glad she approves of me and Laura's relationship.

 

Dr. Connal -1 (0/10) - Hearing Saphira talking about her past with the Doctor... It only angers me more. I actually do wanna know why he did/does what he did/does. It's fucked up.

 

ZEL +2 (5/10) - Surprisingly, they were very helpful in our confrontation this time. They even somewhat helped me deal with PULSE Abra. As in just letting me deliberately terminate their project. They even told me info on their plan. And it was fun watching Abra teleporting them around the room.

 

Lin (2/10) - Been hearing a lot of stuff about this Lin girl. How bad she was in the orphanage and how torturous she could be. And now that I've met her? I can believe that. Her staring at me felt like she could just kill me with her looks. The only reason I feel any kind of sympathy for her though is because I know of her fate. And even though she probably deserves it, it's still not right.

Well... tbh... I haven't even gotten to E17 stuff (I mean I know what happens there cus I like watching playthroughs) but I was trying to stay away from E18 spoilers and now my heart is full of heartbreak... Please don't feel bad. I prob should have said don't spoil anything but when I replied back, I had just woken up. xD But... Wow... Well at least I know my heart is going to be broken sometime in the future. Haha. xD

It's really alright. Tbh, I have been thinking about if Laura should cheat on me or just keep her and Matthew (I would say me but that'd be a little too weird haha) together throughout the whole game but from what you're telling me, it seems like I shall be going with the 1st option. So in a way, you helped me. xD

WWWHHHHAAAATTTT!!!!! WHY....Laura is NOT the kind of girl that cheats,she is too nice for that ヽ(*。>Д<)o゜besides wouldn't Saphira or Charlotte kill you for breaking up with her?

 

 

Well Laura could potentially cheat because EP 18 stuff like the protag but I kinda don't want to spoil anymore

I feel like they'd both be mad at her for cheating and be more on my side. I mean they'd obviously still kill for Laura but in that situation, they'd be mad... Or Charlotte would be upset with her while Saphira is kind of like "Ohh well. That's life."

Well since I'm trying to portray how I am in real life into the game version of me, I wouldn't say I'd become emo. I'd say I'd become more of... a crying, pathetic weirdo. And hey. I gave Noel somewhat of a personality when he basically doesn't have 1 in the game yet. (at least from what I've seen anyways) So I can make Laura cheat. And I even know when I'll have that start.

Ehh. Somewhat but not really. I could see it coming. Just didn't know when we were going to see it. And basically. Break ups always hit really hard for me when they happen. Haha. xD Ohh. I totally forgot the other question. Yeeeaaa no. No more love interest after that. Although, the other soul the resides in my body has a crush on Florinia.

Whenever I read the diaries in the school, something always told me that Florinia had a crush on Amaria or something like that and that's why she decided to not show emotions anymore.

As I made it to the mansion, I could see Laura standing out in front of the door. I rushed up to her and hugged her. We both looked back towards the mountain and just stared at it for a couple of minutes. No words were spoken. We then turned around and looked at the mansion with a the hole still there. Laura grabbed and held my hand.

FkCXiyC.png

 

Laura: Well… it’s still messy but since my sister did it, I’m not that upset about it.

Matthew: Heh. Yea…

Laura: What happened in there?

Matthew: That Lin showed up. I don’t know why but she just had an intimidating feeling just being around her.

Laura: Whoa. Are you ok?

Matthew: I’m fine. Just… I had to pretend I was part of Team Meteor. That felt really awkward and betraying almost.

Laura: Well it’s not like you did anything for them sweetheart.

Matthew: I know but still…

Laura: Ohh by the way. What did my sister want with you before?

Matthew: She basically said that I’m part of the family. Well somewhat.

Laura: That’s astounding! Saphira never usually says anything like that to almost anyone but myself or Charlotte. You must have really made a good impression if she feels that way towards you.

Matthew: Yea. You’re right. Hey. Why don’t we go inside. We can rest and get out of this rain.

Laura: You’re right. Let’s go in.

 

We opened the door and went inside. Everyone was sitting around the coffee table. We walked up and sat at 1 end. Everyone was relieved that we were ok.

 

Matthew: So, what are you guys doi-

Anna: But she was SO cool riding that giant Steelix!

Matthew: I guess you guys were talking about Saphira?

Anna: Mhm. When she comes back, I wanna take a ride on it!

Noel: Anna, I doubt she made it. I mean she fell off it at the peak of Tanzan Mountain.

Matthew: I don’t know. She’s pretty tough from what I can see. Maybe she’ll be injured but I bet she’ll still be walking and kicking and whatnot.

Anna: Yea! Don’t be like that Noel! Stop lying!

Noel: I’m not. Look, I’m not trying to be negative. I’m just being realistic. Even Nomos says it’s a rough fall. Just… don’t get your hopes up ok?

Shelly: B-But then…

Anna: If you don’t have any hope, then how can you keep moving forward?

Noel: I already told you Anna that-

Charlotte: Psh. Oh please. I know my sister. She probably called out her Dragonite before crashing into the mountain. Even then, she’d prob crash right through it and be perfectly fine.

Laura: Sis, I know she’s strong but I don’t think she’s-

Charlotte: Laura, don’t be like that about our sister.

Laura: Ok. Ok… Sorry.

Charlotte: Besides, people in our family DO NOT go out that easily.

Shelly: That reminds me… where are your parents?

Charlotte: You know Shelly, we were in an orphanage. Anyways, changing the subject. Who was the weird chick on that Hydreigon?

Anna: Wait wait. There was a lady on that? But I didn’t see anyone…

Noel: Anna, that Hydreigon didn’t just appear on its own. Someone was riding on top of it. Matt, you were there for a long time? Have any idea who it was?

Matthew: Did she have green hair?

Noel: Yea.

Matthew: Yea. I know who it was. It was Lin.

Charlotte: Lin…? What kind of fucking name is Lin? A stupid name, that’s what.

Laura: Charlotte, she is the leader of Team Meteor.

 

Everyone froze for a second. They all thought they knew who the leader was but that was shocking to them. After a long while of no talking, Anna broke the silence.

 

Anna: Ohh yea! Matt! Laura! Did any of you happen to gen my pendant back?

Laura: No. I’m sorry.

Matthew: Me neither but I think they’re using it as a key.

Anna: A key? What do you mean they’re using it as a key?

 

Shelly’s eyes widened. She looked like she was in shock as well as her brain just remembering something.

 

Matthew: Whoa. You ok Shelly?

Shelly: Anna, where did you get that pendant from?

Anna: I’ve had it since before I was in the orphanage. It’s from my father.

Shelly: Hmm…

Charlotte: If you need something to say, speak up.

Shelly: It’s just… I remembered an old story that I read… In this story, it described an ancient city built around the crash site of a meteor.

Matthew: -thinking to myself- Wait… Meteor… Team Meteor?

Shelly: There was a temple that housed the meteor and it was sealed by for crystal keys: Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and Amethyst. But the city fell into ruin and it was lost.

Laura: Are you saying that…

Shelly: Anna, what if your Amethyst Pendant is actually the key from that story?

Noel: So that would mean that the ancient city…

Everyone: Became Reborn.

Shelly: So is the temple just underneath Reborn?

Matthew: Ohh no.

Laura: What’s wrong hun?

Matthew: Shelly, you remember when Team Meteor blew up the Grand Stairway right?

Shelly: I do. Wh… Wait… You aren’t saying what I think you’re saying am I?

Matthew: When I went down there to save Victoria, I came across 1 of their leaders, Solaris… The 1 who did this to my cheek… Anyways, he told me stuff about Reborn and how they want to bring back this civilization or whatever. I’ll be honest. I don’t remember much of what he said. But in front of us was a door. It had 4 colors on it: red, blue, green and purple.

Shelly: Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and Amethyst…

Charlotte: That’s not good… Now that they found the lock, now they need the keys.

Anna: If that’s the case, then Heather’s Ruby Ring must be 1 of the keys, too!

Matthew: I didn’t even think of that.

Laura: We have to stop Team Meteor from getting the last 2!

Matthew: You’re right… Whatever it is they’re planning, it can’t be good.

Laura: So we need to make sure they don’t get Emerald and Sapphire right?

Noel: Correct.
Charlotte: Wait. So these keys, they’re embedded into jewelry right? Laura, don’t you have a Sapphire Bracelet that dad gave you as a present for your birthday some years ago?

Laura: Ohh my Arceus. I actually completely forgot about that…

Charlotte: So do you know where it is?

Laura: I, uhh… I lost it when mom and dad died…

Charlotte: Ohh…

Laura: But it could have survived the fire…

Matthew: Fire?

Anna: What fire? Ohh. THAT’s where you got those burn scars from?!

Charlotte: Anna, for the last time, I don’t have any scars. See? Perfectly clear.

Shelly: I have to agree with her… I don’t see anything…

Anna: Ohh right! Sorry! I keep forgetting! Hehe.

Noel: Sometimes Anna you say the most-

Anna: But since we’re on the subject, what fire are you talking about?

Laura: Umm… well… It was something that happened with Charlotte when we were younger.

Charlotte: Alright. I’m tired of this. I keep saying I don’t wanna talk about it but you all just keep bringing it up. So go on. Talk about it. I’m not gonna stay around and hear this shit. -walks out of the house-

Laura: Charlotte! Wait! I’m sorry! -chases after her-

 

The 4 of us stood there feeling awkward. We said nothing for a few seconds. But within that few seconds, everything that was said was going through my head. This temple underneath Reborn, these jewels that are a type of key to get into it, Team Meteor and Lin and this fire story. It was all rushing through my head. That is, until Anna spoke up.

L1m7418.png

 

Anna: Sooo how is everybody?

Matthew: That only made things awkward Anna.

Noel: That is true.

Anna: -gasps- I know! Noel, why don’t you let Matt challenge you to a Gym Battle right now since it got interrupted before!

Noel: Well… I suppose it is necessary…

Matthew: I did wanna go to sleep buuuut I think I can handle a Gym Battle before then… To be honest, with everything going on, I’m stressing out and this might help.

Anna: Ok! Let’s go outside.

 

The 4 of us went outside in the rain for the Gym Battle to take place. Anna stood against the wall while Shelly stood in the middle of me and Noel. The 2 of us each grabbed a PokeBall and then looked at each other.

ZBTjgec.png

 

Shelly: I-I guess I’ll be the referee for this match.

Noel: Hey. Before we start, I want to apologize the last time we were here.

Matthew: Huh? What you mean?

Noel: When I got jealous of my sister saying that you’d beat me. I shouldn’t have let that get to me.

Matthew: It’s ok. I think it would have hurt my feelings in some way if I was in your position.

Noel: Thank you Matthew. Well, Nomos and I are ready whenever you are.

Matthew: I hope you are. -grins-

Shelly: Ok, ok. This will be a 6 on 6… Umm… Hey Noel. You do Singles right?

Noel: That’s correct.

Shelly: Ok. This will be a 6 on 6 Singles Battle. Umm… Either trainer can make substitutions and umm…

Anna: The battle will end when all 6 of 1 trainer’s Pokemon have been knocked out! Let’s go go go go go!

Noel: I wonder Nomos. Do you think that he can win?

Shelly: B-Begin!

 

 

The battle was quite tough but in the end, I came out victorious. Each of us called back our final Pokemon back to their PokeBalls. Noel dropped his head a bit and closed his eyes. I thought maybe I had hurt his feelings somehow defeating him in battle but then I saw a smirk on his face.

 

Anna: Oh my god! Great job Matthew!

Matthew: Haha. Thanks.

Noel: That was quite a fine match Matt. In accordance with the official Reborn League policy, I present to you the Standard Badge.

 

I walked over to him and took the badge from him.

rkZQSpg.png

 

I looked at it with happiness despite getting more wet from the rain. I now had 7 badges. If this were in any other region, like Kanto or Johto, I’d only need 1 more to take on the Elite 4 but here, I wasn’t even half way done with the Gym challenge. But I still felt excited that I had obtained another Gym Badge. Just then, Laura came walking back. She looked sad.

XbMiXZi.png

 

Laura: Ohh hey guys… Did I miss something?

Matthew: I just won my 7th badge.

Laura: Ohh. Congrats dear.

Shelly: Ummm… Where’s Charlotte? Is she ok?

Laura: Ohh yea. She’s fine but I think it’d be best if we gave her some space right now.

Anna: What happened Laura?

Laura: Well Charlotte’s not here so… It was a long time ago. Charlotte was young at the time. Back then, we all lived together.

Noel: I take it you also mean your parents alive.

Laura: Yes. They were. At nighttime, she would sneak out here in the garden and stare out to the lake. Nothing harmful about that. It was safe here. But… you can see how a fire could easily start around here. She was playing with her Vulpix 1 night and…

Matthew: She started the fire?

Charlotte: It’s not like she meant to! Saphira woke me up and rushed me out of the house just in the nick of time. Our parents on the other hand…

Matthew: It’s ok hun. You don’t have to finish that sentence.

Laura: -begins to tear up- Thanks hun. But yea. Ever since then, it’s be just Saphira looking out for us… ESPECIALLY after the Doctor took us in. She has kept us safe for years. I just… I hope Charlotte is ok. I just don’t know what I’d do if she… if she were… -begins to cry-

Matthew: Babe, it’s ok. It’s fine.

 

Despite winning the Gym Badge, seeing my girlfriend made my stress come back. I hated seeing her tear up like that.

 

Laura: Ohh. I’m sorry. I’m an adult. I shouldn’t be crying. I need to be more like… more like Saphira.

Anna: -walks up to Laura- No no! It’s ok to cry! Cry all you need to!

ziXHuJb.png

 

Laura: But-

Anna: You’re just getting the sadness out of your body. Come on. We should all go back inside.

 

Seeing her cry was making me even more stressful. I walked up to Laura, and gave her a big hug.

 

Laura: Thanks babe. I really needed that.

Matthew: No problem hun. Hey guys. Me and her are gonna go upstairs. See you all in the morning. Night.

Laura: Night guys.

Shelly: Umm… Ok then. Night.

Anna: Night Laura and Matthew!

Noel: Night.

 

Laura and I then walked back inside the house, up the stairs and into my room. I turned her around again and hugged her. I could tell she really needed it.

25UX2jM.png

 

Matthew: Is everything alright? Besides the whole Charlotte thing.

Laura: Yea. Just... I'm also worried about Saphira. I hope she's ok.

Matthew: Babe, I'm sure she is. From what I've seen so far, she's a pretty strong chick and can get through anything. Even that.

Laura: Yea... Yea you're right. Thanks babe. I needed that.

 

We then got onto the bed and just looked at each other for a few minutes.

fcO18CK.png

 

No words were spoken but that moment alone together felt wonderful. I felt closer to her than I ever felt since I 1st ran into her.

 

Laura: Wow. This is so peaceful and relaxing... I feel so much closer to you right now than I ever felt.

Matthew: You too?

Laura: What do you mean?

Matthew: I feel closer to you as well with my feelings for you.

Laura: Aww babe... I love you.

Matthew: I love you too.

 

We kissed each other and then peacefully went to sleep in each others arms.

Noel +1 (8/10) - Well I'm glad he got over what Anna said to him before. And I was kind of in the wrong too... He's a good kid and a good battler.

 

Shelly (9/10 NO CHANGE!) - She had a lot of knowledge about these jewelry and them being keys to a temple of some kind. It's still hard to take in. I'm glad she's here though. Maybe more knowledge like that will help us.

Matthew: Mmm. Uh… Wha-

Wehttam: Greetings Matthew.

Matthew: Ohh. It’s you Wehttam. I guess I’m dreaming right?

Wehttam: You are correct.

Matthew: Mmm. You know, I feel really comfortable for some reason.

Wehttam: Well take a look at what you’re laying on.

 

 

I sat up, rubbing my eyes to see better. I looked down and was somewhat shocked to see that I was on a giant bed. Wehttam was standing at the edge of the bed.

ZLhxKEq.png

 

 

Matthew: A giant bed?

Wehttam: Well, after your actions as of late, I figured you’d want to be comfy.

Matthew: Well, I ain’t complaining here. This is the best spot you’ve chosen since this whole thing started.

Wehttam: I see your relationship with Laura has blossomed hm?

Matthew: Ohh yea. I can’t believe that we love each other…

Wehttam: I must admit, I was wrong about what I said the last time we were face to face. She is actually a credit to this… Can we even call this a team?

Matthew: I’m not sure but she is a great help. I’m so lucky to be with her.

Wehttam: I too have grown to enjoy her company. Especially when we were in the depths of Tanzan Mountain.

Matthew: Ohh yea. Thanks for that. I know… it was a stupid reason but-

Wehttam: It’s quite alright. It had been a while since I was able to be in this realm again anyways. But that’s somewhat of the reason I brought you here tonight.

Matthew: Is it because of Team Meteor and Lin and the keys?

Wehttam: Correct. We must try to get the keys back from Team Meteor and also to prevent them from obtaining the other 2.

Matthew: I agree. Hopefully, we won’t run into Lin.

Wehttam: That Lin creature…

Matthew: What about her?

Wehttam: When you were around her, did you get a weird feeling from her?

Matthew: You mean besides being scared and shit like that…? I did actually.

Wehttam: I did as well. It feels as if… she’s something else other than a human.

Matthew: Whoa whoa. Wait. What? I mean I did get a weird feeling from her but it wasn’t that. What makes you say that?

Wehttam: I’m not sure yet. Just the way she seemed to know everything and the manner she spoke… it didn’t feel right.

Matthew: Well… I don’t know about that but I trust on how you feel. And from the sounds of it, it sounds worse than I thought. Which is just greeeeat.

Wehttam: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I don’t think you’ll be seeing her for a long time. So that should calm you down some.

Matthew: It does. But still… Even if I am afraid of her, she must be stopped.

Wehttam: You need to find those Emerald and Sapphire jewels quickly before Team Meteor do.

Matthew: Ohh trust me. I plan on doing that. I just wish I knew where they were.

Wehttam: Does something trouble you? You seem… concerned.

Matthew: I’m just thinking about Saphira. I have no clue if she made it or not. She didn’t come back to the house and that’s not a good sign to me.

Wehttam: I see. All I can say is keep a positive attitude. Something tells me that that should also help you with your lady friend.

Matthew: Yea. You’re right. Thanks.

Wehttam: It is no problem. But that is just about all I needed to talk to you about.

Matthew: Is that so? Great! Well, I suppose I’ll see you whenever you need to talk to me again.

Wehttam: Indeed you will.

 

 

Wehttam then walked away as I laid my head down onto the giant pillow and fell back asleep.

 

WEHTTAM RATINGS

Spoiler

Wehttam +1 (10/10) - Well me and him have resolved our differences since last time we met. Seems like he appreciates Laura more. But besides that, he seems to think of something sinister about Lin. I don't know what it could be but I know enough to trust his instincts about this.

Matthew: -yawns- Mmm. Is it time to get up already?

Laura: -yawns- I guess so. -cuddles me- I haven’t slept that good in a long time though.

Matthew: Me either. Haha.

Laura: I love you babe.

Matthew: Love you too hun. Come on. We should probably get up and go downstairs to everyone. We need to come up with a plan.

Laura: You’re right. Although, I really don’t wanna get up yet.

 

The 2 of us rolled out of bed and quickly got ready for the day. We held each others hands and went down the 1st row of steps. At the bottom of them, Noel was standing there.

ueAfb1Z.png

 

Noel: Hey. You 2 slept good I take it?

Matthew: Best sleep I’ve ever had.

Laura: Me too. How did the rest of you sleep.

Noel: Pretty good. Hey Laura? Do you mind if I talk to Matthew alone for a minute?

Laura: Yea. Sure. See you in a bit babe.

Matthew: Alright. Love ya.

Laura: Love ya too sweetie. -walks downstairs-

Matthew: So what did you need to talk about Noel?

Noel: It’s about Saphira. Look… I know everyone are trying to reassure each other. I want her to be fine and alright as well.

Matthew: Buuuut?

Noel: But I just don’t see the point in denying the obvious.

Matthew: And the obvious is what exactly?

Noel: There’s a high chance that Saphira didn’t make it Matt.

Matthew: -sigh- Look, I get it. You’re being realistic and I can appreciate that but you don’t have to be such a downer about it. Try to keep your hopes high.

Noel: It’s not just that. We can’t just sit around here and wait for her to possibly return.

Matthew: Well… you do have a point there. We need to figure out our next move.

Noel: I think… I think some of us should split up.

Matthew: Wait. What?

Noel: Anna won’t let me leave for sure. You know her Matt. You’re… It’s like she has an older brother with you around.

Matthew: Ohh wow… I don’t know what to say to that…

Noel: Listen, I know what some of us should do at least.

Matthew: Alright. I’m listening.

Noel: Me, Anna and Shelly will wait here. Obviously, Charlotte will make her way back from wherever she went.

Matthew: Wait. Charlotte isn’t back yet?

Noel: Nope. But I’m positive she’s fine. She just needs alone time.

Matthew: Well alright. I’m assuming that me and Laura should go somewhere.

Noel: Yes. Go look for more Gym Leaders and also go search for Saphira. You’ll be able to progress in your Gym Challenge and maybe even find Laura’s sister. I know she musty be worried about her still.

Matthew: Yea. She is. I gotta try to keep her spirits high that she’s alright.

Noel: If I had to guess, I would say explore more of Tanzan Mountain. That seems to be where Saphira fell. Hopefully that lady, Lin right, won’t be close behind her.

Matthew: Me either. I do NOT want to see her again for a long time.

 

Just then, a huge explosion or booming sound could be heard. The whole house shook. Noel and I fell to the ground and waited for the movement to stop. When it did, we both stood up in shock of what just happened. We could hear a lot of commotion downstairs from everyone else.

 

Laura: What was that?!

Anna: Did the top of Tanzan Mountain just explode?

Shelly: Laura, wasn’t that where Team Meteor’s base was?

Laura: It… It was.

Matthew: Holy fuck…

Noel: Perhaps you should hurry up there.

Matthew: Yea… We’ll go. Take care Noel. I’ll see you all sometime again.

 

I ran downstairs and looked towards the couch where the rest of the group were around. They all seemed confused and shocked and worried. I put on a brave face just so they wouldn’t be more scared. I walked up to Laura who was sitting on the couch.

zRPb8Jw.png

 

Matthew: Hey babe and everyone else. You all ok?

Laura: I’m fine. I’m just… shocked… That’s all.

Anna: I’m fine! I just wasn’t expecting that!

Shelly: I-I’ll be fine…

Matthew: Alright. Good. So here’s what we’re gonna do. Anna, Shelly and Noel. You 3 will stay here and wait for Charlotte and possibly Saphira.

Shelly: Ok…

Anna: We can do that! But what are you and Laura gonna do?

Matthew: We’re gonna go look for Saphira in Tanzan Mountain and if we don’t find her, then we’ll continue on with my Gym challenge. We need to keep continuing and I think this is the best way to do it.

Laura: Hmm… I guess you’re right. I wish I could say good bye to my sisters but…

Matthew: It’s ok hun. They’ll be fine. I’m sure of it.

Laura: Alright. Well… time to go then I guess.

 

Laura got up off the couch and the both us walked towards the door. Before going out, we waved good bye to our friends and then exited the mansion. We walked through the garden and into Tanzan Mountain. We weren’t sure which way to go though because all the other ways we’ve already been through. But then we both remembered the other way that was blocked off by a steel gate. Maybe there was a hidden switch for that to be moved as well. So we walked towards there. But when we got there, we were shocked with what we saw.

 

Matthew: Whoa… Someone shredded that gate.

0FTYgHC.png

Laura: Yea. It’s scary. But… Wait!

Matthew: What is it?

Laura: Doesn’t this seem kind of familiar to you? Remember back at the base of Team Meteor?

Matthew: Umm… Hmm… Ohh yea! That cell that was supposed to contain Saphira!

Laura: Exactly! She might be here! Come on! Let’s hurry!

 

Laura grabbed my hand and rushed me up into the path. We went through another entrance of the cave and were in another part of the cave. As we continued to walk forward, we heard another loud explosion. I covered Laura in case any rocks or debris were to fall on here. When everything settled, I looked up and saw Saphira standing there. I looked on it shock.

 

Matthew: You… You’re-

Laura: Matt? What’s wrong?

Saphira: Well met Matthew. And Laura as well.

 

Laura’s eyes sprung wide open. She slowly got up and looked towards her sister.

5xgt5L1.png

 

She was there. She survived the fall. Laura’s eyes filled up with tears. She ran over to here sister and hugged her tightly. Saphira returned the hug.

C70yDpk.png

 

Saphira: Hey. I’m alright.

Laura: I-I’m so glad you’re o-ok Saphira…

 Saphira: I know. -looks up at me- I’m glad to see you too Matthew.

Matthew: Likewise. I’m just glad you’re ok.

Saphira: Am I to assume you thought I perished?

Matthew: Well… I was positive that you were alive but I didn’t wanna keep my hopes up all the way you know?

Saphira: Understandable. However, I am not so weak so next time, don’t think like that.

Matthew: Haha. You got it Saphira.

Laura: -stands back and looks at Saphira- Are you ok though?

Saphira: I’m fine. Although I’ll admit. That woman caught me off guard.

Matthew: She really caught me off guard too.

Saphira: What do you mean?

Matthew: She came in when I was trying to fight off Team Meteor when you took Laura home. I hated it because… I had to pretend I was working with Team Meteor.

Saphira: What?!

Matthew: Wait! Wait! You don’t get it! That Lin girl… I could tell she was just really powerful. I wouldn’t be able to stop her. Besides, at that point, half of my team was out of energy. I wouldn’t be able to try at my full potential. Plus, even that Sirius dude was intimidated by her.

Saphira: Fine. But next time, stand your ground and fight to your last breath.

Matthew: Yea. Sure. I will.

Saphira: Still… She seemed to know about my family. And I don’t even recognize her. Doesn’t matter though.

Laura: What do you mean?

Saphira: I assume you all heard the big explosion before right? I snuck back in and terminated their base.

Matthew: Well, at least they won’t be near you guys.

Saphira: And that’s not all. I’ve got a present for you 2.

Laura: What’s that?

 

Saphira dug into her pocket and pulled out 2 jewelry items. Both me and Laura looked at them in shock. In her hand was the Ruby Ring and Amethyst Pendant. Saphira handed them over to Laura.

 

Laura: These… These are-

Saphira: It seems for whatever reason that Team Meteor are desperate to seize these objects.

Matthew: You have no idea how bad they want them.

Saphira: I take it you all know something I don’t.

Laura: The others are back at the mansion. Shelly should be able to fill you in.

Saphira: Good. I take it you 2 are gonna continue on ahead?

Matthew: Yea. Gonna try to collect more Gym Badges and such. Prob run into Team Meteor again.

Saphira: Not a bad idea to be honest. They’ll probably be searching for us so we won’t be staying there for long.

Laura: That’s not a bad idea. You should also give Anna back her pendant when you get back too.

Saphira: No. You 2 will keep them.

Matthew: Umm… Why?

Saphira: If she were to keep that, that would paint a big target on her back.

Matthew: Yea… That’s true.

Saphira: Besides, they’re not gonna expect you 2 to have these. They’re probably even gonna search our house for these. So you 2 need to take these and keep them away from Team Meteor.

Laura: Alright. Sounds good. But where are you all gonna go?

Saphira: Hmm. I know. In the Carnelia Region, there are 2 cities called Labradorra and Calcenon and the gyms in those cities belong to Charlotte and I. I’ll take the group up there while the 2 of you get there you’re own way. Sound good?

Laura: Sounds like a plan to me.

Matthew: Yea. At least I know now where 2 more of the Gyms are.

Saphira: Alright. Good. I’m going to return back to the mansion now. We’ll meet again. Laura, be good and please protect her Matt.

Laura: I will sis.

Matthew: You got it Saphira. Catch you later.

 

Saphira then walked passed me and went back to the others in the mansion. Laura walked back and handed me the 2 jewelry.

ncpM6OX.png

 

I put them into my pocket and we resumed our adventure. It didn’t take long to find the exit if the mountain and we were finally back outside. It was gorgeous though. The sun was shining through the trees. But I had no idea where we were.

dAIoUBy.png

 

Matthew: Wow… This place looks awesome but… Where are we?

Laura: I think we’re… in Aventurine Woods.

Matthew: Sounds like a nice place.

Laura: It is. I haven’t been here much though. We’re really close to Route 1 though and if I remember correctly, that’s where the Vanhanen Castle is.

Matthew: Anything useful there?

Laura: Well, there’s a Gym Leader there but-

Matthew: Let’s go!

Laura: Wait wait. Before we go, I just need to warn you that the Gym Leader there is… unique.

Matthew: Haha. Really? Unique? You got a crazy girl that likes to blow things up and an… entity of some sorts as a Gym Leader. I think I’ll be able to handle this.

Laura: Well, if you say so. Let’s go hun.

 

We held each other’s hands and started our walk through the woods. It looked stunning. I wasn’t 1 to see the beauty of the outdoors but I couldn’t deny the beauty of this place. We reached a separation in the trees and went through it. Just as we were about to start our walk through Route 1 to get to this Vanhanen Castle, a familiar but unwelcomed face came into sight.

 

Matthew: Ohh god damnit.

Laura: What is it Matt?

Fern: Ha! Thoguth I heard a bug or something crawling over here.

DNWBOYX.png

Matthew: What a joy. It’s you Fern.

Fern: What? No “Hi. How you doing Fern?” Psh. Whatever. So why you 2 dweebs here.

Matthew: Why you little-

Laura: Matt Matt! It’s ok. Don’t let this piece of grass get to you.

Fern: Was that supposed to be an insult?

Laura: If you must know, we’re going to the Vanhanen Castle to-

Fern: So you’re going for the badge ehh? Well unlike you, I already have the badge.

Matthew: Well I already have 7 badges.

Fern: Haha! Only 7? Wow. You’re falling behind already. I have 8 right now. And you even started before me.

Matthew: Fuck you. I don’t care how many badges you have.

Fern: Is that so?

Matthew: Ohh. It is. But you know what does matter?

Fern: What’s that loser?

Matthew: Between our battles, it’s 4 for me and 0 for you. Now that’s gotta be killing you. Haha.

Fern: Grrr! Ohh yea?! Well let’s make it 4 to 1 right now!

 

 

 

Matthew: And that makes it 5 to 0.

Fern: Ohh whatever. Not like it matters.

Matthew: What a sore loser.

Fern: No. What I am is the top dog.

Matthew: Do… Do you seriously still call yourself that?

Fern: I’m off. I’d go to Agate City but the dumb ass guards there are asleep for some reason.

Laura: Wait. They’re asleep? Why didn’t you try to wake them up?

Fern: Don’t you think I already tried that you ding bat?

Matthew: Dude, seriously. Back off.

Fern: Haha. Alright. Whatever. I’m out of here. I’m gonna try to track down the Normal Type Gym Leader. Apparently he ran away from the crazy place up in Lapis.

Matthew: -smirks- Ohh. You must mean Noel.

Fern: Hey look. You’re useful for once. Where is he?

Matthew: Well… I could tell you but he’ll prob be long time by the time you get there anyways. I guess I will be a badge higher than you eventually huh?

Fern: Gah! Whatever! Later, losers! -leaves the area-

JiD6fnc.png

Laura: That’s only the 2nd time I’ve seen him and I’m already seriously annoyed with him.

Matthew: Heh. Yea. Well, I’ve met him multiple times and I hate it. I’m just glad I could throw my victories over him in his face. So, now that that mess is out of the way, where do we go now?

Laura: Well you go up and then you keep going right as far as you can. To what Fern said about Agate City, it’s actually directly north from the Vanhanen Castle. Should be a sign kind of in the middle of the 2.

Matthew: Sweet. Let’s get a move on then.

 

The 2 of us set off to get to the Vanhanen Castle. It was a pleasant walk. Sometimes though, we needed the help of some Tauros to get over some ledges. Luckily for us, most of them seemed happy to help us. Plus, it was fun riding on top of them. It was enjoyable. And I could feel myself even getting closer to Laura. We reached the sign that Luara was talking about and we got off of them and waved good bye as they scurried away. The both of us looked at the sign.

aBoiooY.png

 

She was right. Up north was Agate City and south was Vanhanen Castle. Before going south though, we decided to head north to just to check on the so called sleeping guards. We made it to the checkpoint and headed inside. We were shocked to see that Fern was right. The 2 guards were fast asleep.

1NHOFiM.png

 

The 2 of us tried to wake them up but to no avail. With no idea what else to do, we decided it was best to just head to the castle. We exited the checkpoint and headed down south. We walked through an entrance of thick bush walls and on the other side was a maze of sorts. I stood there looking stunned.

iTN0o0U.png

 

Matthew: What… What is this?

Laura: This is the labyrinth.

Matthew: This dude has a labyrinth?!

Laura: Yea. I know. A pain in the ass. I’ve only been here a couple of times.

Matthew: You know how to get through this then?

Laura: Maybe? I’m not totally sure.

Matthew: Well, let’s get through this as fast as possible. I wanna get there fast.

 

We start to try to get through the maze. We were unlucky as we kept meeting dead ends. But at last, we found the correct ways to go. We walked up to a big wooden door. I looked at the magnificent building. I was in awe.

QPlcO4f.png

 

Matthew: And this Gym Leader lives here?

Laura: Yep. Pretty nice isn’t it?

Matthew: It’s awesome… Come on! Let’s go in!

 

We both entered the door and there standing was a girl with blonde hair and wearing what looked to be a maid’s outfit. I was a taken aback by that. I wasn’t expecting that.

PkzBGPp.png

 

???: Ahh. Hello there challenger and welcome. You too Laura. Please follow me. -leaves the room-

Matthew: He really has a maid?

Laura: That’s…

Matthew: What? What is it?

Laura: That’s… Luna.

 

My eyes widened and my jaw felt like it was about to hit the floor.

 

Laura: Hun? Hun, what is it?

Matthew: I heard that name before.

Laura: Where?

Matthew: It was back when I was getting the medicine for Anna. The Gym Leader’s kid there, I think his name was Bennett, was talking about a girl named Luna. I just… I didn’t expect to see her. At all.

Laura: Then you must also know that she’s also a Gym Leader.

Matthew: Ohh yea! I totally forgot about that!

Laura: Well look. She told us to meet her in the next room. We shouldn’t keep her waiting.

 

We walked up into the room Luna walked into. It was pretty impressive looking. Lots of space. We saw Luna and walked up to her.

JlPrDlO.png

 

Luna: My master will be joining us shortly. Please, make yourself comfortable if-

 

Just then, a guy and a Gardevoir came out of the door from another room.

RJU1dQn.png

 

The guy was wearing a suit somewhat but he had on a really funky looking hat. That didn’t bother me though. What shocked me however is that this Gardevoir was able to talk to me.

 

Gardevoir: Ohh! And who are you? A new challenger! That’s who!

Matthew: Uhh… You can talk?

Gardevoir: Why of course my darling. Miss Gossip Gardevoir at your service.

Matthew: I’m sorry. Your what Gardevoir?

Gossip Gardevoir: Ohohohoho.~ Surely you jest.~

Matthew: I don’t.

Gossip Gardevoir: What?! Have you not been watching tv?!

Matthew: I’ve had a lot going on since I came here.

Gossip Gardevoir: Ahh. I see.

???: Yes. Gardevoir here is quite unique. She can psychically project here thoughts in English. Ahh. But where are my manners. I am Radomus, the lord of this castle.

Matthew: Did… Did he really say-

Laura: I told you. He’s unique.

Radomus: It is a pleasure to meet you, challenger. And as you may have already guessed, this here is my Gardevoir. And this right here is my daughter, Luna.

Matthew & Laura: Wait. What?!

Luna: As the castle’s maid, I welcome you. If there is anything I can do to make your stay here more welcome, please just tell me and I will make sure you are satisfied.

Radomus: Boy. You are Matthew, am I correct?

Matthew: Wait. Whoa whoa. How the hell do you know that? We just met!

Gossip Gardevoir: Ohohoho.~ Do not be surprised. Master and I basically know who everyone is.

Matthew: How?

Gossip Gardevoir: That would be thanks to me. It IS my business to know things.

Matthew: But that still doesn’t explain how-

Gossip Gardevoir: Let’s see. I know about your repeated raids on the Meteors. I know about your involvement with the other leaders.~

Matthew: That… How-

Gossip Gardevoir: Even your little escapade from the orphanage.~ But do not worry Matthew! Your secrets are safe with me.~

Matthew: Well… I guess it’s ok… Still weird though.

Radomus: So Matthew, I assume you’re here for your next Gym Battle right?

Laura: Mhm. That’s why we’re here.

Radomus: Ahh. I forgot. A pleasure to meet you as well Laura.

Gossip Gardevoir: Ahh yes. You 2 have recently become lovebirds haven’t yous?~

Laura: Haha. Well… Yes.

Radomus: Ahh yes. Gardevoir and Luna. Would please excuse us for a moment?

Luna: As you wish. -leaves the room-

Gossip Gardevoir: Ooo, enjoying a private moment already.~ How sensuous!

Radomus: Gardevoir.

Gossip Gardevoir: Haha. Going.~ -leaves the room-

vNgqoFn.png

Radomus: Gardevoir… She’s lively but mostly harmless. Feel free to pay her no mind but that is not the reason I dismissed them.

Laura: Then what’s the reason?

Radomus: Matthew, I understand you met with Luna’s father?

Matthew: Yea. I have. Really weird guy.

Laura: When?

Matthew: Again, when I was going to get the medication and the Gym Badge from that Serra girl. He came up and convinced her son that he could get a spot in the Elite 4.

Radomus: Yes. El is indeed very strange.

Laura: El? Hmm. I can’t remember him for the life of me.

Radomus: Well allow me to make 1 thing perfectly clear. Although I call Luna my daughter, I am most certainly not her father. 1 day, she appeared and just claimed me to be her father. I protested and protested but she moved herself right in anyways. But, since my own family is long gone and it’s a bit empty here, I let it happen. So… who was I to say no to her?

Matthew: Soo… you allow her to stay her because there’s no 1 else here to be with?

Radomus: If you choose it to see it that way, then yes. It seems though that she is just playing a part in some greater fantasy.

Matthew: You mean being a maid for you? You actually made her a maid. Isn’t that a bit twisted?

Radomus: Matthew, I know it looks strange but I assure you, she is allowed to do whatever she wants. She chose to be a maid and also a princess at once. She honestly fits each roll quite nicely.

Matthew: Well… I don’t know. Seems kind of fishy to me.

Radomus: If that’s how you feel. But she is a strange girl. Has been no small source of amusement for Gardevoir and myself. Her and Gardevoir grew to be fast friends. So it’s not as if I can just dismiss her now.

Matthew: This whole living situation seems so odd to me. But… I guess it’s alright. But what did you want to talk to us about?

Radomus: Well you will be the only 1 to answer this Matthew. I allowed Laura to be here to be nice. What is your impression of El?

Matthew: He sends a lot of alarms and not any of them good. Have you ever seen him?

Radomus: A couple of times. He has tried to reclaim her many times but of course, I have refused him. I believe that there have been a hint of abuse in her past or else she would not have fled her birth father.

Laura: And because of that, you feel you have to protect her?

Radomus: You’d be correct. That is the long and the short of the affair.

Luna: Sorry for the interruption master but there is another visitor here.

Radomus: Please, show them in. So were you expecting anyone Matthew? Laura?

Matthew: No? Why would I be-

 

When the individual came in, both me and Laura stared in awe but also happiness. It was someone we hadn’t seen for a while.

pGd1R02.png

 

Matthew: No way…

Laura: Is it really you?

Cain: Matthew! Laura! Hey guuuys hey!

Matthew: Dude… I’m so glad to see you.

Laura: Me too.

Cain: I’ve missed the both of you too. What’s happened with y’all though? You seem drained.

Matthew: Well we got Anna better, I now have 2 more badges under my belt, I’ve met their older sister Saphira, we have taken down yet another 1 of Team Meteor’s bases, I met their true leader apparently, took on a giant Steelix, learned that 4 certain pieces of jewelry are keys for a temple or something underneath Reborn and me and Laura now love each other.

Cain: Wow… You just threw everything at me right now didn’t you?

Laura: Haha. He sure did.

Cain: Well either way, I’m glad to see you 2 doing alright. How is everyone else?

Matthew: They’re doing good. They’re going somewhere with Saphira to stay safe.

Cain: Well that’s good.

Radomus: I don’t mean to interrupt this happy reunion but hello there. I suppose that you too have come to challenge me to a gym battle?

Cain: Ohh right. Yes I have. It appears I have some catching up to do. Totally got side-tracked with the whole business deal thing.

Laura: Ohh yea! What happened with her?

Cain: Well I managed to find her. Not that she was happy about that by the way. Anyways, I caught up to her in Ametrine City and found out that some dude adopted her.

Laura: That’s nice. Did you find out his name?

Cain: Yea. His name is Blake I believe.

 

My eyes shot open as I heard that name utter out of Cain’s mouth. I remember that Cal fellow talking about his brother and his name was Blake and everything I heard about him was not good at all. I must have been visibly showing concern because when I snapped back to reality, Cain and Laura were looking at me worryingly.

 

Laura: Hun? Are you ok?

Cain: Yea. You look like you were pondering something.

 

I wanted to tell them but I didn’t want the 2 of them to get really worried about Heather. So I decided to not tell them. I looked over at Radomus and secretly made the notion to keep this quiet. I had a feeling that he knew or something and I didn’t want him blabbing about it.

 

Matthew: Y-Yea… I’m ok. Just you know… Worried about stuff… I’m alright though.

Radomus: Well, I’m glad that we have gotten that out of the way. Let us get back to the problem at hand though.

Cain: Problem? What problem?

Radomus: Well, we have 2 challengers and 1 gym.

Cain: Pfft. You call that a problem? The solution is easy. Both me and Matthew will battle you in a Doubles Battle and we’ll both win the Gym Badge.

Radomus: Ahh. But alas, I’m afraid that wouldn’t do at all. I wonder. Could you really play any real strategy with 2 minds on 1 side of the board? For when the king does not know what the queen is doing, the tragedy that is the kingdom falls into disarray and soon… Soon checkmate.

Matthew: …Was this dude seriously just talking about chess right now or am I starting to lose it?

Luna: Well you see, master here has amassed his fortune by winning Chess tournaments all across the globe. He is quite admirable, don’t you think?

Matthew: Wait. Wait. Are you saying that he owns all of this by winning Chess tournaments?!

Luna: That is correct.

Matthew: Wow… I didn’t know things like that paid out so much.

Cain: Well anywaaaaays, I was just kidding. I know what’s gonna happen. Me and Matt will battle to see who takes you on 1st.

Radomus: Settle this however you’d wish.

Matthew: Well Cain, I suppose this is another rematch. I’m gonna pound you.~ And yes. I said that intentionally.

Cain: Haha. A romp with Matthew is always good fun.~ Let’s do it baby!

 

 

 

Cain: Ok ok.~ You win as usual.

Matthew: Haha. Hey. You put up a good fight.

Laura: I love watching you 2 battle.

Cain: Go soften him up for me Matty.

Radomus: What’s this? Do you not believe uou can best me by yourself?

Cain: Oh. My. God. It’s just a jooooooke. Stop taking everything I say so seriously.

Radomus: Maybe it is you who is taking me too seriously.

Luna: Ummm, excuse me master? Do you have a minute?

Radomus: What is it dear?

Luna: Have you seen Gardevoir anywhere? I can’t seem to find her.

Radomus: Wasn’t she with you?

Luna: Last time I saw her was in the foyer when Cain arrived here. -goes to the foyer-

Radomus: Well, it seems in this game that I am playing Black. Perfect.

Cain: Huh?

Radomus: Ohh it’s nothing.

 

Luna came back into the room but the worry I saw on her face seconds ago had intensified much more. In her hand was a piece of paper. Everyone else could see the worry in her face as well.

a7HaZI0.png

 

Laura: Luna? What’s wrong?

Luna: I am sorry master but I read this message that was supposed to be for you and well… here.

Radomus: Let’s see. Who could this be from?

Luna: The person who delivered this was wearing a light robe. I did not recognize him though…

Radomus: Is that so? Hmm. “begins reading the letter- “To 1 Radomus Vanhanen,” Wait. To 1? Is there more than 1 with that name? If so, I’d like to meet this fellow.

Cain: Just keep reading!

Radomus: Right. Right. “To 1 Radomus Vanhanen, I have csptured your precious ‘Gossip Gardevoir.’ If you wish to ever see her again, you will return my daughter to me at once. Signed, El” Well how rude. No “Sincerely”? For god’s sake, not even a “With love”?

Matthew: -looking at everyone and pointing to Radomus- Is this guy for real.

Luna: That person is NOT my father. You are. Master, I beg of you, please do not send me away with him. I… I…

Cain: Wait. Was she really just captured? She was RIGHT there when we came in.

Radomus: I deduce that they were waiting for a diversion. I assume your battle with each other was the perfect chance for them to strike and to carry out their plan.

Cain: Well come on! We have to get her back!

Luna: Yes! Miss Gardevoir is my dear friend. I don’t know what I would do if I had lost her. Master, you will find her right?

Radomus: Hmm…

Cain: You don’t have to worry Luna. We’ll take care of it.~ Right Matthew?

Matthew: Yea. I wanna have this battle and there’s no way that’s gonna happen when 1 of the Gym Leader’s Pokemon is missing.

Luna: But how in the world are you gonna do that? None of us have any idea where they went. What… What do we do?

Radomus: Nothing.

Matthew, Laura & Cain: What?!

Luna: Master?

Radomus: There is no need for concern. We do nothing.

Matthew: What do you mean?!

Cain: Yea. That’s your Pokemon. Don’t you care about it?

Radomus: Of course I do. What a silly question to ask. But that is why I needn’t do anything.

Matthew: Dude, I seriously don’t get you. Whatever. I’ll go search for her.

Cain: Yea! Me too! This… gold-head isn’t making any sense! -leaves the room-

Luna: I wish to assist this problem as well!

Radomus: Luna… You cannot go. You will put yourself in danger. He plans to capture you. The most precious piece of the game. Instead, I shall act in your stead. Please stand back Matt and Laura?

Matthew: Ok?

Laura: Ohh. Uhh, sure I guess.

 

We stood back. Radomus began to spin himself around really really fast but I could see him changing or at least his clothes. When he stopped, he was now in what appeared to be a detective outfit. I was so confused.

nunwXut.png

 

Matthew: What… Ok. Can someone tell me how exactly the fuck he did that?

Laura: I have no clue but wow. I wish I could change that fast.

Radomus: Detective Radomus is on the case. Luna, do stay here. I will not let you fall into this trap. -leaves the room-

0FFjRkT.png

Luna: As you say master. And thank you.

Laura: Alright Matt. You ready?

Matthew: Wait. Hold on.

Laura: What is it?

Matthew: I want you to stay here and keep an eye on Luna?

Laura: What? Why? She’s not a kid. She’s a Gym Leader. She can take care of herself.

Matthew: But what if there’s more than 1 person in on this? What if the second me, Cain, you and Radomus leave, they swarm in and attack her. I have no doubt that she’s strong but she wouldn’t be able to handle multiple bad guys at once. Besides, you can see how scared she feels about her dad being here right?

Laura: Yea… Yea. You’re right. Ok. I’ll stay here and look after Luna then.

Matthew: Thanks. We’ll be back as soon as possible.

 

I leaned in and kissed Laura, hugged her and then exited the room. I felt better knowing that Laura would be here to help out Luna if need be. But I felt a headache was about to start since I was about to travel with Radomus. And something told me Cain felt the same way.

REBORN CHARACTER RATES

Spoiler

Laura (❤️/10 NO CHANGE!) - She seems to be more relaxed now that she knows her sister is ok. I'm happy about that too. And I'm still amazed that we love each other. Never thought that would happen. At least, not this quickly. I'm glad she knows her way around this area though or else I'd be super lost.

 

Fern (0/10 NO CHANGE!) - Great. Had to see this asshole again. Ohh well. At least I thrashed him in another battle as usual. Although, I suppose he WAS helpful in giving us the information about the guards being asleep. I wonder what caused that to happen. But yea. Hopefully, I never see him again.

 

Cain (10/10 NO CHANGE!) - He's back! I feel like it's been so long since we last saw him. And as always, right back into wanting to help people. Or in this case, Pokemon.

 

Gossip Gardevoir +5 (5/10) - I mean she seems nice. Maybe a bit too friendly... and weird. But I really don't like the fact that she's basically been spying on me throughout my adventures since I got here.

 

Luna +5 (5/10) - So I finally get to meet Luna. It was certainly weird considering she looked a lot like a maid but she seems ok. I need to be around her more to get a better feel for her. Although, she obviously does not like this El dude.

 

Radomus +3 (3/10) - This dude is a weirdo. And that's saying something since I consider myself a big weirdo. I don't know if I trust him with Luna but she seems happy... But he doesn't even seem to care about his Pokemon. Then again, he seems to know a lot as well so maybe he knows something that we don't. Hmm... And what the hell was with that weird outfit change?
