    The two ladies quickly made their ways past Jimmy and Avery as everything went dark for a moment. Feeling as if they covered him with something to distract him. Feeing dizzy and different somehow. Jimmy managed to uncover himself. Only now everything was much bigger around him. Before he even had a moment to compose himself and gain his bearings. Someone came up to him and looked down at him.

    "So I see we have two little clothes thieves aboard the S.S. Wishmaker..." the lady said.

    "Did you steal this from Avery?" The lady asked. He hadn't met her before, but the name made him remember.

    Thinking to himself "Avery...wasn't that the name of the person I was just with. Where are they. Did they get away?"

    Looking next to him. The woman seemed to be asking the question to...a Buizel? Just as confused. They seemed to be holding the clothes Avery was just wearing asking it. Jimmy took a moment to compose himself. Not as dazed anymore. Wondered why he felt so weird still. Holding his, now paws, in front of him. He goes wide-eyed a moment. Letting out a loud, "HUH?!" Only to the lady, it didn't sound that way. Even Jimmy could hear that it was more like a loud, "Paa-chiii!." Looking over himself. He had been turned into a Pachirisu. Now more aware of what's going on. He looks toward the Buizel and the lady leaning down and letting the Buizel asking if they stole the clothes from Avery.

    "Pa? Pachirisu?" ("Avery, is that you?"). He asked the Buizel. Still puzzled about what happened.

    Meanwhile. Jimmy's Rotom still remained nearby around the corner. Not yet knowing of what happened to the two. Jimmy's Pikachu had been knocked out somewhat away from Jimmy and Avery after the Diamond Ladies made their escape. Still in sight and in the same hallway.

    "Pachi. Pachirisu?" ("Wait a minute. Where's Pikachu?")

    Avery Miller
    Guest Quarters Hallway
    Affected RP'ers: @Desolate Divine @Chakramaster


    Whatever Avery had expected to happen when they encountered the Diamond Ladies, this had not been it. Not in the slightest.

    As Avery snapped a couple photos with Jimmy, the Diamond Ladies crossed their path. Thankfully, it seemed they had failed to notice Gloria in their rush to evacuate the room. That was a relief at least. Still the sudden appearance of both Avery and Jimmy definitely caught Violet and Jarena off guard. It didn't seem like them to lose their cool so the double invasion of their room was most assuredly rattling them.

    “Who… what are you doing here?” Jarena asked Avery.

    Avery grabbed their Rotom phone out of the air and raised their eyebrows at Jarena. "Oh well I was on my way to my room when I ran into a fan. Thought I'd stop to give an autograph and take a selfie. You know, usual famous people stuff. I'm sure you ladies get it all the ti-"

    As Avery spoke, the Eevee in Violet's arms began to thrash about. Avery could feel the rage emanating from the small Pokémon though for the life of them they couldn't fathom what they had said or done to hack her off so much. Avery started to open their mouth to ask if the ladies needed assistance in calming the poor fox Pokémon down when Violet let loose that fatal shout.

    “Cass, knock it off!” Violet shouted, struggling to hold on.

    Avery's eyes widened as it all clicked into place. Cassandra was with the two other ladies. Somehow she had been turned into an Eevee, likely by magic. Which meant that the missing operatives were likely also Pokémon! It only took a split second for Avery to realize the danger they and Jimmy were in just by remaining here rather than running while they had the chance. But by then, it was far too late.

    The hex spread across Avery's shirt like a spiderweb and began to take effect almost instantly. Avery couldn't even react as their hands turned to paws, their arms grew fins, and a floaty encompassed their neck. In the blink of an eye the once 5'7 23 year old was now a 2'4 sea weasel. Still entangled in their human clothes, Avery didn't have the opportunity to tail the Diamond Ladies as they made their escape. The realization hadn't quite hit them yet and they were still focused on their mission. It wasn't until Alyssa rounded the corner that things started to shift into perspective.

    "So I see we have two little clothes thieves aboard the S.S. Wishmaker..." Alyssa laughed to herself.

    ("Bui bui? Buizel.") "Clothing thieves? Hardly," Avery responded as Alyssa pet them. "Though I get where you might get that idea from." ("Buizel buizel bui.")

    "Did you steal this from Avery?" Alyssa asked, struggling not to laugh.

    Avery furrowed their brow in confusion. "What? No I just told you I didn't steal them." ("Bui? Bui bui buizel.")

    "Avery, is that you?"

    Avery looked over at Jimmy in utter disbelief as it finally set in exactly what was going on. Of course Alyssa couldn't understand them. They were a Buizel. And Buizel only spoke Pokéspeak, not English. Which meant that while Avery and Jimmy could understand each other and understand Alyssa, they had no means of conveying to her what sort of danger she was in, or what had happened to them. Avery's heart sunk.

    ("Buizel?") "Jimmy?" they asked as they looked over at the Pachirisu, "Is that really you?" ("Zel Buizel?") If they had gotten Jimmy then that could mean.... "Gloria?" Avery called out, "Gloria, where are you?" ("Buizel? Buizel bui Buizel?")

    ("Min...") "Here..." a soft voice said in response. By now, Gloria had made her way back over to where her trainer had been hiding. ("Min min, Shaymin?") "Is that really you, Avery?" She seemed to be in just as much shock as Avery was over the whole situation. Reasonably, they supposed.

    ("Bui, Buizel.") "Unfortunately, yes," Avery said with a sigh. "Seems I went in over my head on this one, didn't I?" ("Bui bui, zel, bui bui?")

    Gloria rolled her eyes a little and trotted closer. Reaching out, she pat Alyssa on the shoe. ("Min min shaymin.") "Hey, hey reporter lady," she said, trying to get Alyssa's attention

    The Diamond Ladies
    Central Park, En Route to Pinnacle Chapel
    Affected RP’ers: @Desolate Divine, @Shruikan


    The fastest way to get to Pinnacle Chapel was through Central Park again, and unfortunately for Cassandra, Jarena, and Violet, it meant having to go through then entire stretch of Central Park and then take the stairs two levels just past the sports pool. And it was impossible to keep a low-profile, especially as now guests were heading off to lunch and other mid-day activities. It was at this time that activity around the S.S. Wishmaker was its busiest, but they knew they had to keep moving, especially away from their guest room.

    Meanwhile, they had no idea they were being followed by Jon Drake’s Latios the entire time.

    As they walked and tried to blend in and not be identified by anyone in the crowd, Cassandra didn’t know what to think about her opponent Avery Miller being suddenly turned into a Buizel. While it meant her record would be preserved, it was going to be extremely suspicious when two semi-finalist tournament competitors were a no-show and totally missing.

    “Hey, are you Jarena!?” a young, blonde female avid fan recognized her. “Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it! My name’s Stephanie, I watch you, Cassandra, and Violet all the time!”

    “Uh, hey, nice meeting you, too!” Jarena laughed, still trying to break away before it became a full-fledged conversation. “Later!”

    Meanwhile, Violet pretended to not hear people in the crowd who recognized and called out to her. It was increasingly difficult as the groups of people going to and from grew larger. Eventually they were able to get to the other side of Central Park… but only after six impromptu chats and ten hastily written autographs. But along came a few of the dreaded questions of where Cassandra was, only to get a response of “she’s not feeling too well at the moment.”

    After taking the stairs up two floors, they immediately headed for the Pinnacle Chapel and were looking forward to a bit of peace and quiet.



    Pinnacle Chapel
    Affected RPers: Desolate Divine


    The Pinnacle Chapel had been reserved as a quiet area for prayers and was open to anyone and everyone regardless of religion and creed, having no religious symbols or affiliations to any one particular religion and was simply a quiet place welcome for all. Some of the areas were reserved for masses with a daily schedule for what types and what times, but there were separate small prayer rooms that were available for guests to use at any time of day.

    Violet simply picked out the closest private room she could find and opened the door. While the room wasn’t too spacious and only had the square footage of a one-car garage, it would suffice and had enough room for what they needed. Inside the room were two wooden prayer benches and a wooden table for the guests to put their belongings. The rest of the room was simple with a carpeted floor and plain white walls. Violet simply put Cassandra down on the table and the Eevee just sighed and still looked very anxious.

    Shortly after, Violet laid out the only four witchcraft books they had on the table, as well as the reagents they had on hand.

    “You take two, I take two,” Violet told Jarena, sliding two of the witchcraft books her way.

    “Gotcha,” Jarena agreed, already flipping through the first book.

    Each page of the Shadowcraft spell books they had detailed various hexes, spells, curses, and the like of many different natures. The books themselves were printed in private secrecy using older, underground printing press methods as they were never even known about by any publisher or registered in any kind of database. Meanwhile, even the diagrams were all drawn by hand.

    Some of the hexes, curses, and spells were ones Cassandra, Jarena, and Violet studied thoroughly and knew as second nature by now, and there were a few that they were still practicing on. Then there were those that were “maybes” to try another day while others they dismissed and had no interest in for all their intents and purposes. They had taken the books along with them just in case they wanted to try a “maybe” spell or brush up on one of the few they were practicing on.

    They were now hoping the spell to reverse Cass’s transformation just happened to be one of those spells they dismissed earlier, but now needed more than ever. Meanwhile, Cass watched anxiously as Violet and Jarena began flipping through the books, as every page they flipped with no sight of the spell she needed lowered her hope of becoming human again as the number of remaining pages they had yet to go through was quickly diminishing.

    “Oh man, this one we gotta try someday,” Jarena giggled and paused for a brief moment, pointing toward a spell that caused the victim to fall asleep and be subject to a dream of the caster’s own design. “I would have such a blast with that one!”

    “Focus on Cass, please,” Violet muttered, carefully reviewing each page.

    After a few more minutes of flipping and turning through pages, both Violet and Jarena had finished going through their first books and were onto their seconds. Meanwhile, Cassandra was beginning to give up hope, wondering what she would do if she had to spend the rest of her life like this.

    She couldn’t help but let her long ears droop, and eyelids lower, and let head sink to the surface of the table in in a prone position of dismay as Jarena and Violet were flipping through the last and final pages of the last two books.

    “Veee…” she sighed, looking completely defeated.

    A few seconds later, Jarena had reached the last page and just casually clapped the book shut.

    “Got nothing,” Jarena shrugged. “Wow, sure hope all those people we hexed enjoy their new lives as Pokémon.”

    But Violet didn’t reply. Jarena simply decided to sit back and be thankful it wasn’t her who got hit with this spell. At the same time, she didn’t think life for Cassandra would be too bad as an Eevee. She figured it could have been a whole lot worse!

    But then after a minute or two, both Cassandra and Jarena noticed Violet stopped turning pages. Instead, it looked like she was reading something very thoroughly. Jarena suddenly became curious and couldn’t help but inquire further.

    “Find… something?” Jarena asked. “You’ve been staring at that page for a while.”

    Violet didn’t reply right away, but then after a few seconds, she looked back to Jarena.

    “This might be our only chance,” Violet told her as suddenly Cass looked up.

    Jarena quickly come over to look at what Violet was referring to, and upon looking at the page, she saw it was an Affliction Reversal Spell, intended to undo hexes and annul curses to restore the afflicted to their natural state. Normally they would have skipped right past it as they wanted to cause afflictions, not annul them, but now was a different story.

    “Oh yeah, that sounds pretty promising!” Jarena exclaimed with a smile, suddenly renewing Cass’s spirit. “How did we not consider this before?”

    “The reagents are the problem, that’s why,” Violet told her, pointing to a small list of necessary ingredients they were going to need. “Especially with what we’re dealing with.”

    Jarena looked at the list which didn’t seem so bad at first from a reagent quantity standpoint, and then she didn’t look so thrilled when she saw exactly what was needed. There were only three items, but it was the situation surrounding them that was going to be the difficult part.

    “Okay, that’s… yikes,” Jarena muttered. “Obviously the cup of water is no problem, but it says it needs a sample of the victim before they were afflicted and a gold Nugget. How the hell can we get a sample of Cassandra as a human when she’s all Eevee now?”

    “Her hairbrush back at the guest room may have a few strands that will suffice,” Violet mentioned. “As for the Nugget, we’re going to need to find someone on this ship that has one.”

    “But most people just pawn those off as soon as they find one,” Jarena frowned, not looking too thrilled about it. “Who knows any trainer that’s ever actually sought out to buy a Nugget at the wholesale price? You know everyone’s going to ask why and what it’s for when they see us asking for it.”

    “And getting back to the room is going to be a problem in itself,” Violet muttered, knowing the situation surrounding the raided guest room and how it might be crawling with backup for Nathan. “I doubt they would care to steal Cass’s hairbrush, though. As for the Nugget, we can acquire one in time whether on this ship or not, but the sooner, the better.”

    It was at least some glimmer of hope for Cassandra, though she knew she may be stuck as an Eevee for some time, but at least the answer was somewhat in reach. Shortly after, Violet noticed a nearby cup of free prayer bookmarks offered to the guests, took one of them, and placed it on the page of the Affliction Reversal Spell before closing the book shut and adding it back to the bag.

    Now, they just needed to get to work on getting what they needed, and maybe they could still come out on top after all.

    Messaged Neo Emolga for the Diamond Ladies reactions


    Jon Drake
    Mens Locker Room, Battling Arena:
    Affected RPers: @Neo Emolga


    "What the f***..." Jon muttered to himself as he watched and listened through Latios' sight-sharing ability. The two girls had found a private room in the chapel, with Latios creeping in behind them with great finesse, which was proved difficult for a six and a half foot, invisible dragon Pokemon, before they closed the door. Inside this room the two girls were searching through the creepy looking books he had heard about, though he still didn't understand why, until Jarena mentioned a spell she wanted to try, before Violet responded.

    "Focus on Cass, please."

    It took Jon a few moments to piece it together. The Eevee sitting on the table, that was so angry before, and now looked extremely depressed, was in fact Cassandra Silvers, the favourite to take the tournament. Through some means of witchcraft, which all three of these girls seem well familiar in, she has been turned into an Eevee, possibly her own spell that has backfired, and now her companions were desperately searching for a way to get her back.

    Jon remembered the missing agents, horrified at the revelation. Pokemon don't talk, and a stray Pokemon wandering the ship wouldn't raise any suspicion...

    Continuing to listen to them, Jon made sure to pay attention to every detail they discussed when talking about the removal spell. This could be the only way to return the previous agents to normal, and if this went on much longer, they may need it. A cup of water, a sample of the person before they were turned, and a gold nugget. Jon's first thought was to tell his supervisor to have all of nuggets confiscated, under the pretence that they had reason to believe performance enhancing drugs were being smuggled in disguised as nuggets, however decided against it, figuring that would give away their ability to listen in on conversations. It would be too convenient if a legal order to seize nuggets came out as they discussed needing one. But what if all operatives were instructed to search for and buy gold nuggets? Whilst Jon didn't thank Cassandra deserved to be stuck as an Eevee for the rest of her life (though if the other operatives couldn't be changed back, it wouldn't be the worst for her to remain that way), her being in this state meant there was one less dangerous target, and she seemed to be the leader of the three of them, so having her unable to do much was beneficial to the operation.

    As he was thinking this, he noticed something concerning. Latios' attention seemed to be on one of the books. Jon started to realize what was going on, as Latios crept closer towards the table, focused on the book.

    "Don't try and take it!" Jon said without thinking, knowing Latios couldn't hear him and hoping nobody else was in the room, "They will see you!"

    Jon watched as the outline of Latios' invisible arm (visible only to the Pokemon himself), reached out, and slowly started dragging one of the books towards him, as Jarena kept reading, and Violet was placing the book she was reading in the bag next to her.

    Much to Jon's surprise, Latios seemed to be getting away with it, until Casseevee noticed the book seemingly moving on its own. Her ears perked up, as she started crying out, trying to gesture to the book.

    "Cass, what's wrong now?" Violet asked looking up at the Eevee, before looking at the table at the same time as Jarena.

    "Oh what the hell is going on now..." Jarena muttered, as Violet's eyes widened.

    "GET OUT OF THERE!" Jon shouted, still knowing Latios couldn't hear him.

    There was a flash of light as Violet activated a Pokeball letting out an Umbreon. Letting go of the book, Latios' attention shifted to the Umbreon, before tilting a little to the right, and within a second being in the air above the ship, looking back at the second Latios shaped hole that was in the ship.

    Jon watched in disbelief, now wondering if his insurance would cover that damage since there was no reason for a Pokemon to be doing battle damage in a chapel, but also knowing Latios now can't be seen as long as he can help it.

    Knowing Latios was now safe, and thankful that Alyssa was far away from there, Jon opened the secure message app on his phone before sending a message.

    Operative ID 76293
    Confirmation Code: Foxtrot Oscar Romeo Alpha Mike India November India Sierra
    Have confirmation that witchcraft and supernatural means are being used by targets. Order operatives to avoid direct engagements with targets for time being, and requesting operatives visit all stores and try and purchase any and all gold nuggets. Requesting immediate debrief with command. Current position is Battle arena.


    The next steps were clear. Prevent Cassandra from returning to her normal self until she is in custody, and track down the operatives who had been turned to Pokemon and return them to their human selves. Now Jon had to wait for Latios to return, and for details about his debreif...

    The two Pokemon seemed very vocal with one another, which caused Alyssa to laugh even more, looking at the two adorable Pokemon as a pair of burglars who had just been sprung, and were now arguing over how to escape.

    Before she could say anything else, the crooked duo were joined by a third, familiar Pokemon, who seemed to be talking to them. A Shaymin.

    "You're Avery's Shaymin aren't you?" Alyssa asked, "Is Avery nearby? An incredibly rare Pokemon like yourself probably shouldn't wander around on their own in a place like this."

    "Min min shaymin." Responded the Shaymin, trying to get Alyssa's attention.

    "Where're your trainers little guys?" Alyssa asked, kneeling down in front of the Pokemon, still amused at the whole situation...
    Sad to say, I am not sure that I will be on PXR much longer. The gaps where I have disappeared have become bigger and bigger as life gets busier, and most of the friends I made here, I either talk to elsewhere or are gone completely. Still trying to make a point of checking in, but in case that falls through, my Discord is Jacob Cookson#0902.

    Peace.

    "Jimmy? Is that really you?" Avery the puzzled Buizel asked Jimmy, now the Pachirisu.

    "Yeah it's me. They got the jump on us. Gah, why didn't we realized it sooner. Now they turned us into Pokemon." Jimmy said.

    While Avery's Shaymin was trying to get the lady's attention. Jimmy moved off

    Jimmy looked around after calling for his Pikachu. No longer having his height. Now instead of being over 5' tall. He was only 1'04" tall. Looking around he noticed something yellow ahead of them as Avery and her Shaymin tried to get the lady's attention.

    "Pikachu are you okay? It's me, Jimmy." The Pikachu gaining consciousness again.

    "Ji-mmy? You're....not Jimmy. You're a Pachirisu, but you sound a lot like him." The Pikachu said.

    "Yeah, it's me. The Diamond ladies changed me and Avery both into Pokemon. We let our guard down and now look at us. Now I know how you feel when trying to tell me something. Cause that lady over there can't understand me. Errr when I'm human. At least we can understand each other now. Which is actually pretty interesting getting to actually talk to you. Jimmy chuckled.

    "Hey, go get Rotom for me would you. I'm gonna see if I can somehow find some way to get this lady to understand me." Jimmy said to his Pikachu

    "You got it!" His Pikachu said as he ran off around the corner.

    Jimmy walked slowly again. Still getting used to this body and size. Getting to his clothes. Almost instinctually he got down on all fours and began searching his clothes.

    "A-HA!" He pulls out his badge.

    "Ugh, this thing is much bigger than I though." He pulls it out and throws it out closer to Avery and the lady. He then runs over to it. Much quicker this time. Using both his paws he flips open the badge. Showing his picture.

    "Hey, lady! Look!" Jimmy said pointing at the picture. While standing next to it. The picture had both him in his human form and his Pikachu partner in it.

    The time is upon us...

    Alyssa watched as the Pikachu and Pachirisu spoke, before the Pikachu ran off, and the Pachirisu dug a wallet out of the pants, showing Alyssa a picture of a trainer and the Pikachu. Alyssa was surprised at how smart this Pokemon was, knowing to show her its trainer.

    "Is this your trainer?" Alyssa asked, "Come on, I'll help you find him, and help you find Avery, Gloria."

    Alyssa began scooping up the clothes, and putting them in her bag, noticing just how much clothes there were, as well as the Pokeballs attached to the belts.

    "Wow, you really are a pair of little outlaws." Alyssa laughed, "I will have to let your trainer know to keep a closer eye on you."

    Before they could respond otherwise, Alyssa scopped up Gloria and the Pachirisu, carrying them against her chest, something she definitely would not have done had she known the Pachirisu was actually a twenty something year old man, especially in her swimsuit...

    "You're a little too heavy for me to carry with these guys, but are you fine to walk?" Alyssa asked the Buizel, before starting to walk in the direction of the Pikachu, "I'm sure your trainer is around somewhere..."

    "Is that your trainer?" She looked down at Jimmy "Come on, I'll help you find him, and help you find Avery, Gloria."

    As she began walking past him. She gathered their clothes and scooped them up. Placing their clothes into her bag.

    "Hey, what're you doing? That's not my trainer. That's me!" He says pointing to himself.

    "Wow, you really are a pair of little outlaws." she laughed. "I will have to let your trainer know to keep a closer eye on you." She said to them both.

    Before Jimmy even had another chance to do anything. She scooped up both Gloria and Jimmy both. Carrying them both against her chest. Not used to this. Especially being held by a woman. Much less in a bikini. he'd never been this small enough to be held in her arms like this before either though.
    Jimmy went very still for a moment. His face turning red and went quiet.

    "You're a little heavy for me to carry with these guys, but are you fine to walk?" She looked down asking Avery. She then started walking toward the direction Pikachu went. "I'm sure you're trainer is around here somewhere..." She said. Jimmy still too embarrassed say a word or move.

    The Diamond Ladies
    Pinnacle Chapel


    Violet’s Umbreon dashed toward the Latios’s shaped hole, but then stopped and looked up with irritation, realizing the intruder was already long-gone.

    “Was that Latios with us the entire time!?” Jarena shouted in shock.

    “That confirms it,” Violet muttered, feeling irked about the whole thing as she recalled her Umbreon back to her Pokéball. “They’ve got people on this ship tracking us down and trying to expose us. These are not coincidences.”

    “Great, this just keeps getting better and better,” Jarena growled. “I swear, if I find out whose Latios that was, they’re toast.”

    Violet gave it more thought, now realizing things were getting a lot more dire than she thought. And the fact the Latios attempted to steal one of their spell books make it clear he was specifically targeting evidence that would ruin their careers, which had to be a target of whoever his trainer was. Unlike the other trainers that they had transformed into Pokémon to silence them, the Latios was a different story, although Violet wasn’t sure exactly how much the Latios could communicate about what he found while in the Pinnacle Chapel. But she was able to discern he was given specific instructions to target them.

    Still, even with that knowledge, there was nothing she could use it for. The Latios was long gone, but it was a warning that they had to be ready for anything.

    “Forget the Latios for now, let’s focus on getting Cass’s hairbrush and a nugget,” Violet told Jarena as she gathered the books, secured them in the bag, and scooped up Cass again in her arms.



    The Diamond Ladies
    Central Park


    After leaving the Chapel and heading down the stairs, Violet figured by now any operatives that came to help Nathan likely moved on as they had left the room and were no where to be found. But the whole time, she couldn’t help but wonder about how many people were on this ship that were in on trying to expose them. Meanwhile, a whopping six people were now transformed into Pokémon and that number was only rising by the hour. Things for the Diamond Ladies were hanging on the edge and they couldn’t afford any more disastrous slip ups.

    The only saving grace was at the moment, it seemed like most people onboard the ship were still unaware of the situation. She believed there might still be a way to get back on track as long as they could get Cassandra transformed back as soon as possible and avoid having to transform any more people, as the number was getting way too high and they still had the rest of today and tomorrow to get through before the ship docked.

    When it came to the hairbrush and the nugget they needed, Violet decided to go for the hairbrush first. Nuggets, while rare, were still common enough to the point where Violet felt they would come across one eventually, if not here on the S.S. Wishmaker, then in some town in due time. But they needed the hairbrush most of all as if they suddenly couldn’t get a sample of Cassandra when she was a human, she would be stuck as an Eevee forever.

    After heading back into Central Park, Violet and Jarena took it easy and tried not to attract too much attention. Any time they were approached by fans, they simply said hello, gave them a quick autograph or selfie, and kept moving on to avoid any suspicion or imply something was wrong. But the whole time, Violet was taking it as though every one of her moves was being watched.

    “Hey, look who it is!” a young male avid fan exclaimed. “Say, where’s Cassandra? Surprised to see you two without her!”

    “She’s not feeling too well,” Jarena replied, making a melancholy face. “Guess maybe the waves are getting to her.”

    “Gee, that’s too bad,” he replied, suddenly drawing his attention to the Eevee. “Although that is a really adorable Eevee you have there! What’s her name?”

    “Cinnamon,” Violet lied, playing it as if the Eevee she was carrying was always a Pokémon. “We need to be on our way, farewell.”

    “Buh-bye now!” he waved with a smile.

    In a way, Violet could take comfort in knowing there were still plenty of people here that didn’t suspect anything. Besides the Latios, everyone else had been dealt with and were now Pokémon incapable of communicating.

    Meanwhile, Jarena was trying to think over the situation. What mattered was making sure these pursuers didn’t get evidence. While they could claim witchcraft all they liked, it meant nothing if they couldn’t provide the evidence to the authorities, and something that sounded so outlandish as magic and witchcraft wouldn’t hold up in court. It was like trying to arrest someone over suspicions of them conspiring with space aliens to take over the country or smuggle illegal steroids for a mermaid. Until whoever was bugging with them could verify the witchcraft books were authentic and validate it by casting spells of their own, all they really had were suspicions and rumors.

    Still, the three of them definitely preferred to keep their true natures hidden as much as possible and quiet for as long as they could even with those circumstances.

    Bunnying of Avery done with permission from Noble. Jimmy is kinda frozen, so can't really not go with Alyssa ;)

    Alyssa Drake
    En Route to Battle Stadium
    Affected RPers: @Noblejanobii @Chakramaster


    Alyssa began walking trying to think where the Pokemon would have come from. It seemed odd that entire outfits were taken, including Pokeballs, phones and wallets. Maybe the trainers were showering when the outlaws struck? So maybe the gym? She was there this morning, and they had showers, though she opted to use the one in her room.

    Alyssa continued walking, trying to narrow down where she was heading.

    Avery was battling Cassandra tonight, and Stadium was open for practise for competitors. After all, Jon had been there all morning. There were locker rooms with showers there. Granted, not even twenty minutes had passed since Alyssa had seen Avery, and it wouldn't make sense for them to shower before training. But the Pachirisu's trainer could be Jon's opponent tonight, so may be there.

    "I wonder where the Pikachu went?" Alyssa said to herself, before making her way to the stadium. Buizel waddled along behind, whilst Pachirisu was unusually still.

    "You alright there?" Alyssa asked, before guessing the pokemon may be scared, "Don't worry, I doubt you will be in trouble for taking the clothes. The whole thing is pretty funny if I am being honest. And I think I know where your trainer might be..."

    A few minutes passed as Alyssa made her way across the ship, walking into the empty stadium, finding Jon by himself in the middle of the arena.

    Battling Stadium
    Affected RPers: As above


    "What're you doing here Liss?" Jon asked, somewhat surprised. Last he saw she was attempting to find Cassandra, thankfully in the wrong place, "And why the wig?"

    "Oh I forgot about that." Alyssa laughed, "I was trying to tail Cassandra for an interview, but didn't want to be recognized while I did some digging first. But then found these cuties wandering around. This is my husband Jon."

    Alyssa gave the pair of Pokemon she was holding, a Shaymin and Pachirisu, a hug, squeezing them tight, before continuing.

    "Found them with a pile of clothes they stole. Then the Shaymin showed up to take them back I think." Alyssa laughed, "I figured they probably came from here. Trainers showering or something. I know the Shaymin belongs to Avery Miller. I interviewed them today about their match tonight, and recognized some of the stolen clothes as theirs. Figured they may be training. Figured the trainer of the Buizel and Pachirisu might be here as well. I know he has a Pikachu? Are they around?"

    Jon took a second to process what he heard. He had seen Alyssa through Latios' sight sharing go in the direction that Violet, Jarena and Casseevee came from. Less than half an hour later, she shows up here with two Pokemon she found in a pile of clothes. Jon looked at the Pachirisu she was holding tightly, and could see its eyes frantically looking around.

    "They must be the backup." Jon thought to himself, "I need to get them off Alyssa, but how?"

    "Avery is here, just cleaning themself up." Jon explained, "Same as the trainer with the Pikachu, but I didn't get his name. My Nidoking accidentally went a little crazy with a sludge wave, and they got hit by it. They're both probably in the locker rooms, wondering where their clothes went..."

    "Oh great, I'll just wait here and return these personally." Alyssa replied.

    "Actually, let me do it." Jon replied, wishing he didn't have to lie through his teeth, "We have a meeting about the finals tonight that's supposed to only be for competitors that should be starting any minute. But if it makes you feel any better, someone tweeted that they saw Cassandra near the Aquatheatre. You're dressed for it. Maybe get that interview?"

    "As long as you don't mind keeping an eye on these rascals? Tonight is a big night, and tomorrow is probably even bigger?"

    "Nah it's fine, I am almost done for today anyway." Jon replied, "I'll keep an eye on them until their trainers come back."

    "Well I guess it's goodbye then." Alyssa said to the pokemon, before giving them another squeeze. Jon tried to hide his distaste knowing that the Pachirisu that was being so cuddly with his wife was likely another guy.

    "You better not be enjoying this..." Jon thought, wishing the person stuck in the Pachirisu body could hear him...

    "Try not to steal any more clothes, okay?" Alyssa said as she put the Pokemon on the ground and unpacked the clothes from the bag, before scratching the Buizel behind the ear, "Behave yourselves for me."

    Alyssa stood before giving Jon a kiss on the cheek, and turning to leave.

    "Wish Avery luck in their match tonight for me! And you make sure to win too! I want to see you two battling tomorrow night!"

    "I'll try my best." Jon replied, waiting for Alyssa to be out of earshot, before turning to the Buizel and the Pachirisu, especially the Pachirisu.

    "You two aren't really Pokemon are you..." Jon said quietly, "They got to you, didn't they..."

    Sad to say, I am not sure that I will be on PXR much longer. The gaps where I have disappeared have become bigger and bigger as life gets busier, and most of the friends I made here, I either talk to elsewhere or are gone completely. Still trying to make a point of checking in, but in case that falls through, my Discord is Jacob Cookson#0902.

    Peace.

    Jimmy Kendo
    Battle Stadium
    Affected RP'er: @Noblejanobii @Desolate Divine


    Okay this was officially one of the weirdest days of Jimmy's life. He'd never been held like this by anyone much less this close to a woman before. This was a little too close and personal. Out of all the things that've happened him. This definitely ranks in the top 2. She carried both him and Avery's Shaymin in her arms held closely against her chest. Most likely trying to give comfort. Not knowing he was really a human. Not a Pokemon. Soon they were in the Battle Stadium and met another guy who he had not yet met.

    "What're you doing here Liss?" The guy asked.

    She went on to describe that she had been tailing the Diamond Ladies as well.

    Jimmy trailed off into thought while the two spoke. "It's good to know there's others out there helping to get closer to these Diamond Ladies. Well, lucky for her, at least she didn't get a size check, a fur day, and an extra large tail to boot like me and Avery here."

    His attention was brought back and she mentioned his name, Jon as she gave both Jimmy and Gloria a tight hug. Closely to her chest. Jimmy's mind about faded. He almost looked daze as his eyes kept wondering. Then it kinda kicked in.

    "Uh-oh" Jimmy thought. "She said this was her husband. Meaning if he finds out I'm human and a guy at that. Being held this closely to his wife?! I'm in trouble...". Jimmy, the now Pachirisu was now in a more so cautious mode. Eagerly eyeing around nervously.

    Jon explained to his wife a made up story about where Jimmy, Avery, and Gloria's trainers were. "but...we didn't have trainers. We aren't Pokemon. Why would he lie?" Jimmy thought.

    He agreed with his wife that he would return us and our clothes himself. He even gave her what might be a false lead on where the Diamond Ladies are now. Jimmy wasn't sure, but what turned into a large ship to search is now like 5 times that size now that he's only a foot tall.

    The two agreed to part ways again and Jon would look after the Pokémon she had. Giving both Jimmy and Gloria still held tightly in her arms one more close hug. Again, dazing the 1'04" tall squirrel Pokemon. He wasn't used to this kind of attention. Especially from a woman.

    "Try not to steal anymore clothes, okay?" She looked at them and said as she placed them both back on the ground with Avery. She unpacked our clothes and things before giving Avery a let behind the ears and saying "behave yourselves for me." The two spoke a brief moment more before parting ways. He then turned to Jimmy and Avery. Staring at us both. In a more odd way. He knew something....if Jimmy could feel it. Avery probably could too...though to Jimmy. It looked like he really was staring him down. He couldn't help, but feel bad. Especially when he spoke up....

    "You two aren't really Pokemon are you? John said to them quietly. "They got to you, didn't they?" He said to them directly.

    Jimmy's thoughts went wild...."crap.....HE KNOWS!!" The Pachirisu began freaking out. Let out a momentary scream then begins pacing back and forth muttering to himself. Only to Jon it was more like "Pachi Pachi. Pachirisu. Ri Ri. Pachi Pachi." All on repeat as he began trying to think of a way to explain himself and being so close to his wife. Think to himself. "Life really is tough for a Pokémon. Not being able to communicate with humans. I really gotta give them the benefit of the doubt more." He thought as he continued pacing. Trying to think of someway to explain to him.
