    Eon Villa, Akala
    Affected RPers: @Desolate Divine (Jon/Latios)


    Jon had informed Willow about Brianna and her warning about Agatha, to which Willow felt there was truth in her testament that without help, Agatha would prevail. He also revealed that his plan was to keep Latios and Latias hidden and safe, keeping them away from the frontlines considering their value in getting the Netherclysm spell completed faster. Though Willow knew, if Agatha wanted that goal pursued, she wasn’t going to attempt it herself. She’d send someone else to do the job, be it one of her subordinates or Pokmon.

    Jon had revealed his plan involving Zoroark, using its illusion ability to take on the form of Latios to draw out anyone and anything tasked with trying to obtain his blood. Willow had mixed feeling about the idea, thinking it would definitely deceive Agatha’s witches and their Pokmon, but it would mean putting a Zoroark up as bait, which would be risky for the dark fox’s welfare. But, given what was at stake, she felt some risks like this might be necessary.

    Lastly, Jon made it clear that the element of surprise was dependent on Willow not revealing she had defected and could not be seen by any of Agatha’s followers or her Pokmon. As Willow immediately suspected, that involved remaining at the Eon Villa until the whole ordeal was over with. And Jon had given her an offer, work with him and help him and his team however he needed, or be cooped up and confined.

    “So what’s it gonna be?” Jon asked.

    “Had me sold on Option 1 as soon as you mentioned it,” Willow replied. “Truthfully, me being on the frontlines at this point would be a death wish, so for all our sake, let me help you however I can from here. I don’t know who this Brianna Levine is or why she doesn’t want to lend a more direct support for you and your team, but I can do that for you with whatever resources you’re willing to use. Whatever it takes to stay alive, really. I may not have as many spells memorized as Agatha and I may not have the kind of reagents on hand that she has, but with the spells I do know and with whatever materials you have on site that you’re willing to be used as reagents, I can make it possible.”

    “Chances are good your Zoroark trick will work since you’re not known to have a Zoroark of your own, but this trick will work likely once and only once,” Willow told him. “Agatha isn’t omniscient, but she won’t make the same mistake twice once she learns how certain people behave, although right now she doesn’t know you’ve been made aware Latios is a target. She knows you wouldn’t leave Latios out in the open and undefended. This Zoroark… if you want to convince Agatha and her followers it’s really your Latios, they’re going to want to see you besides him, treating him and talking to him the same way you would treat your Latios, so do whatever you can to put on a convincing act. It would make sense not to be on the direct frontlines, but at least leave yourself open enough to be spotted from afar during the attack. I can’t guarantee Agatha will put Giratina and Marshadow into action, but it’s your best chance.”

    “In terms of fighting them and capturing them, you’re likely the best person up for the task, but I may be able to help with this,” Willow offered. “If you have any flat stone tiles or stones with an even level surface that you can carry with you, I can plant a Xin Vertigo curse on the flat sides, and you could then carry that tile or stone with you to the confrontation. You could then throw or plant those into the arena where you battle them, and they will work like disguised anti-personnel land mines. If anyone steps on those, it will severely mind-warp them. I haven’t had the pleasure of experiencing it myself, but I’ve heard it feels like ‘your brain’s been yanked down your throat while the world around you implodes on your eyes.’ I imagine no Pokmon or human would be able to deal with that easily. There are other hexes I could use on these tiles, but I think Xin Vertigo would be the most effective.”

    “But sure, let me know what you’d need for whatever plan you and your team have in mind,” Willow offered.



    Triad (The Diamond Ladies)
    En Route to Route 4
    Affected RPers: @Chakramaster @Shruikan @Noblejanobii


    It had taken a bit of time before Cassandra could get her bearings as to where they were, but after finding the road and a sign post, she was able to figure out they were near Route 6, a small distance away from the Lab, but far enough to not make it at all obvious that’s where they were just moments ago.

    That was when Luneth had appeared, still as an Alolan Vulpix. It did get Cassandra wondering just how long she had been like that, as she had yet to see her back in her human form since the moment she came onto the island in the first place.

    “So, um, which way to the megamart?” Luneth asked.

    “It’s toward the east,” Violet recalled. “We’ll head up north along Route 6, go along Royal Avenue, and at the end of that should be the Megamart. We should make it there by noon.”

    “Uh…” Jarena interjected, looking a bit concerned, “…yeah, I think we forgot something. Weren’t we going to help out Avery with their extra legs problem?”

    “Oh damn, I almost forgot…” Cassandra muttered, looking regretful that she hadn’t remembered her promise. “With everything that happened yesterday…”

    Instinctively, she thought of sending Avery a text message to let them know she was on her way, but then she realized she didn’t have her phone on her.

    “Don’t sweat it, let’s head over there now,” Jarena replied, still feeling optimistic. “Hey, it’s still early in the morning, so they’re probably just having breakfast. By the time they’re done…”

    “Up to you if you want to come along, Luneth, though we could use your help if you do,” Cassandra told her. “A four-way Nox Purge for this would be less exhausting than the three of us doing it alone, but it’s your call.”

    “It’s in the other direction, though…” Violet remarked, looking dour. “We perform a Nox Purge on Avery and by the time we walk all the way to the Megamart, it’ll be well into the evening and all of us will be dead-tired. Trying to do a scouting mission like that in the dark is suicide.”

    It didn’t leave Cassandra with many options. She had to decide whether to abandon the scouting mission or abandon Avery, and she really didn’t like having to make that choice. Instead, she had put her paw on her star piece pendant and focused on reaching out to Jirachi, feeling his help might make both of them possible as long as they didn’t feel too tired after the spell.

    “Hey, ‘Lucky,’ could you take us to where Avery is?” Cassandra requested. “They’re probably in the lobby of the-“

    <Hey there! Actually, my sources tell me Avery and that Abital dude are on Route 4, heading toward Paniola Town. I can take you there right now! Just let me know if you want to gently appear in front of them, or surprise them from behind!>

    They decided not to wait…

    Cassandra didn’t think they were that late to the point where Avery and Abital didn’t want to wait any longer, but then again, they hadn’t agreed on a specific time, and now Cassandra felt that was one detail that should have been included. Without her phone and now as an Eevee, her communication options were severely limited.

    “Gently in front of them would probably be ideal,” Cassandra replied.

    She wasn’t sure why they wanted to go to Paniola Town, but she decided she wasn’t going to ask to find out. Thankfully for her, this time the teleportation was brief and not as hectic as the last voyage had been. As they found out, it felt more like softly floating toward the destination, feeling as if like a levitating spirit before arriving on the road just before Avery and Abital. Cassandra imagined they had no idea what was going on, but she figured Avery would recognize the Eevee, Buneary, and Furret. Although she wasn’t sure if Luneth had followed along with them and had asked Jirachi to come along…

    “Avery!” Cassandra called out in her Eevee form, looking up at the half human, half Keldeo humanoid.

    Cassandra raced to Avery and Abital on all fours. By now, she had been quite used to both getting around as a human and as an Eevee to the point where it simply felt natural in both states, as if switching from riding a bike and walking on foot. Jarena and Violet quickly followed behind her, and Cassandra imagined Avery would recognize them, but Abital would have no clue what was going on.

    Once she had caught up to them, she then tried to catch her breath.

    “Didn’t expect to find you out here, but we should be able to undo that centaur issue you’ve got,” Cassandra offered. “That is, if you still want that fixed and didn’t change your mind since last night…”

    Avery Miller & Abital Ecke
    Route 4
    Affected RP'ers: @Neo Emolga
    and potentially @Shruikan

    Avery trotted quickly up the route; Abital clung to them with one arm wrapped around their waist while checking their location on the map on the styler in the meantime. In order to proceed through the route they had to leave themselves out in the open for parts of it, something that made Avery really uncomfortable. While they were more used to being a centaur, they weren't entirely confident in their ability to fight or run away in the event they were attack. A pit had formed in their stomach, and the more they thought about it the worse it got. Maybe they should have stayed longer at the hotel.

    "Still going the right way?" Avery asked quietly. Abital tapped Avery twice with one of his fingers. That meant yes. "Got it," Avery answered before picking up the pace a little. They began to climb a small hill when they felt Abital suddenly grab them tightly, causing Avery to halt. "What? What's wrong?" Avery asked, looking around frantically. They quickly spotted what was wrong. They were a Drifloon floating in the air a ways above them. Normally a rather innocent sight but not when the Shadowcraft apocalypse led by one of the world's foremost Ghost trainers was going on.

    Abital aimed their styler in the air and launched their capture disc. They signaled to Meir as they began to circle the Drifloon in the air with their capture disc. The Raichu leapt off Avery's back and released an electric shock into the air, temporarily paralyzing the Drifloon. With the troublesome balloon frozen in place, Abital was able to successfully complete the capture and bring the Drifloon to their side, at least for now. The Drifloon floated down beside the group and looked at Abital expectantly. Abital looked at Avery and quickly signed, "Perhaps we could get some information out of it about that base. You think you'll be able to understand it as well as you can your own Pokmon?"

    "Shouldn't be a problem," Avery answered with a shrug. "What should I ask first?"

    Before Abital could respond, a sharp "Eevee!" pierced the air. It didn't take long for the ranger and his partner pokmon to spot the incoming group of pokmon. Electricity began to crackle from Meir's cheeks as he waved his tail in the air threatening while Abital aimed his styler at them, preparing to stop any oncoming attack before it started.

    Thankfully for the ladies, Avery intervened before Abital and Meir could attack them. Unlike the other two, Avery had recognized the sound of their own name, even in PokSpeak. They knew that voice well even if had been four years. "Hey stand down Meir!" they called to the Raichu. Avery twisted around best they could and swatted at Abital. "Don't launch it's okay, they're friendly!" they said quickly.

    Abital lowered their capture styler and gave Avery a confused look. "How do you know?" they signed.

    "I've met them before. You have too." Avery turned around to the trio and knelt down a little awkwardly, hoping to make their height difference not so significant.

    “Didn’t expect to find you out here, but we should be able to undo that centaur issue you’ve got,” Cassandra offered. “That is, if you still want that fixed and didn’t change your mind since last night…”

    Avery scratched the back of their head awkwardly and shrugged. "Ah yeah sorry about that. I knew we shouldn't have left so early, but I was feeling a bit impatient especially after Abital told me that they think they figured out the location of one of Agatha's bases. We wanted to get a closer look before they changed locations or something. Figured it'd be a way to chip in and maybe get my lower half cured without having to-"

    Avery stopped when they felt a sharp tap on their shoulder. They looked behind them to see a somewhat huffy Abital. "Care to tell me who exactly you're revealing our whole M.O. to?" he signed.

    "Oh! Right, sorry. You met them all yesterday, briefly. These are uh..." they paused, "actually I don't know if I should say your names aloud. Probably want to keep your presences a secret still, don't you?" Avery turned and quickly finger spelled each of the ladies' names to Abital (except for Luneth, if she came along, since Avery was not familiar with her).

    Abital's eyes widened in recognition. He bowed quickly and signed an apology.

    "He says he's sorry for being so aggressive. We're all a bit on edge and unlike me, he can't understand you, so he didn't realize who you were," Avery translated. "Now with that cleared up," Avery rubbed his arm, "You said you'd need to do a Nox Purge to turn me back, right? Didn't you mentioned it'd take a lot out of you though? That's why we waited until this morning to do it." They frowned. "The fact that you're back as Pokmon doesn't exactly bode well. If anything it confirms my suspicions that you're here to deal with this whole mess." Avery crossed their arms and looked over their shoulder, "You're not gonna like what I'm about to say," they said with a smirk.

    "Then don't say it," Abital signed back with a flat look on their face.

    "Since you're definitely here on important business, I'd rather you not waste your energy fixing me. There's bigger fish to fry, and the main one on the menu should be Agatha, not me." They clicked their tongue and looked in the direction of Paniola Town. "Abital's Ranger Styler tracked a Haunter he captured earlier to the Thirfty Megamart by the Battle Royale stadium. If we cut to route 6 through the town we should be at that supposed base pretty quickly. We could send in Gloria or one of the local Pokmon to scout around, or something." Avery sighed a little. "It's dumb and dangerous, but we just want to help out somehow if we can."

    Abital nodded silently in agreement. It might be their honeymoon but this was no time for them to just sit idly by and watch the whole world go to ****. Especially not when they could help.

    "So put a pin in turning me back for now. The curse is still spreading but it's moving pretty slowly, so we have time before I fully turn into a Keldeo. In the mean time, let's see if we can help you kick Agatha's tail."

    Jimmy Kendo
    Dimensional Research Center (Underground Base) > En Route to Route 4
    Affected RP'ers: @Neo Emolga @Shruikan @Noblejanobii


    As the morning meet went on. Triad and Jimmy discussed a few thoughts on their minds. One being how Jirachi's power can work. Jimmy even explained how long Jirachi's power can last before he tires our now.

    “Really?” Jarena asked, looking very curious. “I mean, like… what’s to stop us from wishing to become legendary Pokmon ourselves?”

    “Sensibility,” Violet told her with a bit of a frown. “Remember, we’re trying to go incognito here, at least until we’re in the clear. Eevee, Buneary, and Furret work because they’re not Pokmon Agatha and her followers would drop everything to try and catch. Show up as legendary Pokmon and you’d better hope you can break out of a Pokball after being ruthlessly attacked by every Pokmon they’ve got on hand.”

    Jimmy nodded. "Exactly. We can't go too crazy. The more power put into it the more power that Jirachi will exhaust. Right now, it's an resource we can't waste.

    Once Jimmy explained if they planned on turning into Pokemon again. Asking Jirachi was probably the best idea.

    “Can’t see why we shouldn’t go with our usual trio!” Jarena beamed with a smile.

    Jimmy couldn't help but wonder though. If they now had the power to sense unstable sources of hexes and shadowcraft with their pendants. Could these witches and other shadowcraft users do the same if they got close enough to them? Would they be able to tell the difference between someone using it and someone that's been transformed by their spells? It was enough to cause concern. So he'd have to bring it up.

    Everyone finished their breakfast as they discussed more. Even Luneth had woken up and joined them with breakfast. She didn't look like she had gotten much sleep to begin with though.

    Once everyone was done cleaning up and ready. They gathered what essentials they knew they would need. Then, upon Triad speaking to Jirachi. Everyone was ready and teleported up topside. Jimmy had even changed into his Pikachu form. Already ready to go. While Triad still looked like they weren't totally used to the teleporting still. They will get used to it after another time or two.

    Now a group of Pokemon are above ground ready to jump into action.

    "Hey Jirachi. Make sure Pikachu is down there and prepared to join us soon as he's rested."

    "Sure thing Jimmy! Once you guys are ready for the scouting. I'm sure he will be awake and ready to go too." Jirachi ensured Jimmy.

    It was then Jimmy noticed the brown paper bag with the scent of french fries as he told Triad he would give them. He couldn't help but chuckle at how Jirachi still liked to play, but at least it's better than it was those 4 years ago.

    Once everyone gathered their bearings.

    “So, um, which way to the megamart?” Luneth asked.

    “It’s toward the east,” Violet recalled. “We’ll head up north along Route 6, go along Royal Avenue, and at the end of that should be the Megamart. We should make it there by noon.”

    Jimmy thought back. "oh yeah, I remember seeing them like that back then too. Too bad we couldn't have helped back then, but I didn't wanna come right out with this plan as prying ears were everywhere. Jirachi can make this simple enough though. Especially since he's met Avery before."

    They all seemed to agree. It was best not to wait here on catching up with Avery. More help we can get the better. It was then Jimmy had to agree. He nodded and decided he would follow the small team we still had so we wouldn't lose focus. He can also provide one of the pendants to Avery and their new partner in case they wanted this as protection as well.

    The team seemed agreed that they couldn't wait. We had to jump on this.

    “Hey, ‘Lucky,’ could you take us to where Avery is?” Cassandra requested. “They’re probably in the lobby of the-“

    Jirachi immediately jumped in as a response.

    "Hey there! Actually, my sources tell me Avery and that Abital dude are on Route 4, heading toward Paniola Town. I can take you there right now! Just let me know if you want to gently appear in front of them, or surprise them from behind!"

    “Gently in front of them would probably be ideal,” Cassandra replied.

    "I'll join them as you know Jirachi. Personally I think it's best if we all stick together for now. Be sure to mark this area we're at though. This way you can teleport us right back here assuming it's still safe once we're ready." Jimmy told Jirachi as those that wanted were taken to Avery's location.

    While Triad was explaining to Avery and their partner. Jimmy stepped away a moment. Luckily it looks like Avery stepped in after recognizing the Eevee before the Raichu with them attacked.

    Speaking to Jirachi telepathically on a connection only they can hear. "Hey Jirachi. Remember earlier I got a message from my sister right? Think you can reach out to her? I think we could use her help here. If she's as good at stealth as I remember her being. Her skills could come in real handy here."

    "Another friend to add to the team sounds like the best kind of idea to me! If she starts to cause trouble I can always help use my power to let her know you are the same little brother to her as you use to be." Jirachi let out a small laugh.

    "You're right there. Anyway. Since I'm gonna be in this Pikachu form for awhile. Think you can handle sending the message?

    "On it!" Jirachi said as the connection cut.

    Jirachi searched using Jimmy's phone contacts. Finding the traces of who he wanted and found 'Alisaie' and her location. Trying not to totally scare and startle her. He spoke gently as to not frighten her.

    "Helloooo? Hello there! I sure hope I'm not starling you. You are Jimmy's sister correct? Alisaie? We don't have much time, but Jimmy needs your help. He and his team need your assistance in scouting the megamart. Would you be willing to help? Don't worry I'm not a ghost! I'm a friend of Jimmy's. I'm sure he will introduce me to you soon as he can." Jirachi tried his best to get her attention. All they could do was wait.




    Alisaie Kendo
    Heahea Hotel Room


    Alisaie had woken up. Prepared a small breatfast from some fruits and shared with her Pokemon. Soon as she prepared for the day. She thought she was ready, but a voice appeared to her.

    "Helloooo? Hello there! I sure hope I'm not starling you. You are Jimmy's sister correct? Alisaie? We don't have much time, but Jimmy needs your help. He and his team need your assistance in scouting the megamart. Would you be willing to help? Don't worry I'm not a ghost! I'm a friend of Jimmy's. I'm sure he will introduce me to you soon as he can."

    "Who?! Where are you? How can I trust someone I can't see? Especially with everything going on?" Alisaie let out. It's true. With everything going on. How can you trust a mysterious voice you've not heard before?

    It was then Jirachi took a moment to share a vision through telepathy of Jimmy and their current location.

    "Jimmy is currently in his Pikachu form. They can't afford to be seen out in their human forms. Pokemon right now are much less suspicious. It could very well be just a normal Pokemon or a human that was transformed into one by one of these witches. So they wanted to be sure to go in hidden as they can be. If this isn't enough though." Jirachi then showed her a vision of Jimmy's Pikachu. Still sleeping.

    "Now there's a Pokemon I recognize. It's Jimmy's Pikachu....so." Alisaie thought for a long moment. "okay, I think I can trust you. For now. Your said they were heading to the megamart right? Is that what they needed scouted? Then take me nearby. I'll get right to it." Alisaie told the voice.

    "But they aren't heading there quite yet-" Jirachi couldn't finish his thoughts before Alisaie jumped back in.

    "No need for that. I can get things done before they even get there." She says confidently.

    "Okay, but I'll let Jimmy know too so he can expect you." he told Alisaie. "It's great to finally speak to you even if it was just through telepathy." Jirachi told her.

    Alisaie gathered her things as she tells this mysterious voice that she's ready.

    "Alright, do I just go there or...?" She questioned.

    "Nahhhh, I got this. Just hold still aaaaaaaand. We're off!" Jirachi tells her as Alisaie's body glow for a brief moment before she was whisked away.

    The time is upon us...

    Jon Drake
    Eon Squad HQ
    Affected RPers: @Neo Emolga @Noblejanobii


    Jon nodded at Willow's thoughts on the matter, as his attention was pulled from the conversation by his phone buzzing.

    Unlocking the phone, and putting in his authentication key to the decrypted messaging app, he opened the message to see it was from Ford, one of the four Eon Squad operatives he had investigating the Thrifty Megamart. Specifically watching Route 6 to see who is going to and from there. Ford had arrived in the early hours of the morning, finding a vantage point where he could blend in, and taking note.

    Specifically, the message was a photo, of a person, what looked like a Centaur, and an Eevee, Buneary, Furret and Pikachu. Upon zooming in, he recognized the Centaur as Avery. Whilst the only members of Jon's squad who knew Triad's identity were himself, Dylan, Abbee and he presumed Glimmer, that wasn't the reason for the message, but more so the centaur making their way down Route 6.

    "Sorry, I gotta send a message quickly." Jon said to Willow as he opened up his standard messaging app, and located Avery's number from the RSVP message he had sent months earier.

    "Avery, it's Jon. I apologize for keeping my distance, however had hoped to keep the pair of you from getting caught up in this.

    One of my scouts has spotted you and your company, and I have a pretty reasonable idea where you're all heading.

    Can you please inform them of the following;

    -Eon Squad has located a deserter, who has provided the following intel
    -The Megamart is littered with mine-like traps that are fatal. If you are going there, go with extreme caution.
    -Endgame is within 48 hours, however they will accelerate it by 24 if they get what they are after. We currently possess it, so they will come for us sooner rather than later.
    -Endgame is bad. Apocalypse-level bad.
    -Deserter has agreed to help. Using Wrecking-Ball's abilities, among other things, I am certain they are genuine. Will discuss this more later.

    I will provide more details when there is a more secure method of doing that. If you still think there is benefit to infiltrating the Megamart, be extremely careful doing so.
    Avery, please delete this message as soon as you have passed on the information.
    Jon Drake."


    Turning to face Willow, Jon continued.

    "It's a good thing you came early. None of the other operatives are awake yet." Jon explained, "I will inform them of your cooperation when they awake. For now, follow me, and I'll show you to your room here. I will get in touch with my commanders, and let them know of what you have told me."

    Willow Scalera
    Eon Villa, Akala
    Affected RPers: @Desolate Divine (Jon/Latios)


    After Jon had addressed something urgent on his phone, which Willow decided it would be wise not to pry into, he looked to her.

    “It's a good thing you came early,” Jon told her. “None of the other operatives are awake yet. I will inform them of your cooperation when they awake. For now, follow me, and I'll show you to your room here. I will get in touch with my commanders, and let them know of what you have told me.”

    “Understood,” Willow nodded.

    Jon had then taken her upstairs to a small but cozy guest room, which to her seemed more welcoming than a hotel room as it had a clean white carpet and a queen-sized bed with forest-green bedsheets. Meanwhile, there was a flat screen TV on the wall with a blu-ray player and a wide collection of movies to watch. The dcor also seemed to be flower themed, as though springtime was the whole basis behind the interior decorating.

    Wow…

    Willow couldn’t help but feel appreciative of Jon’s hospitality, giving her a place to stay that was far better than the lowly, beat-up bedroll that Agatha had expected her witches to use. In truth, Willow had only expected to be dealing with that arrangement for a short time, but it seemed indefinite until Agatha had gotten what she wanted. Netherclysm.

    “Thank you…” Willow told Jon, not sure how else to show her gratitude. “I appreciate this… a lot. At first I was worried you wouldn’t believe me and I wouldn’t know what to do to keep Latias and I safe, but… I’ll do whatever I can to protect you, Latias, and her brother Latios. You have my word.”



    OOC: Avery’s transformation reversed with Noble’s permission.

    Triad (The Diamond Ladies)
    Route 4
    Affected RPers: @Chakramaster @Shruikan (maybe) @Noblejanobii


    For a minute, Cassandra was a bit regretful she and the rest of Triad had been so quick to jump back into their usual Pokmon selves, as Abital hadn’t expected it and was caught off guard. Had Avery not interrupted, they would have been battling Meir the Raichu. Abital had apologized in sign language, having Avery interpret it for them, making it clear that it was a misunderstanding. But then they had given the Ladies the rundown of the situation, offering to put off the treatment if their scouting mission involved going after Agatha.

    “The transformation is still going?” Cassandra asked, looking a bit taken back as her Eevee head tilted to one side in perplexment.

    “Seemed frozen last time we checked,” Violet recalled, standing upright on her Furret feet to allow herself to look at Avery’s body. “Not the case anymore, it’s progressing gradually.”

    “Yikes… we’d better take care of that,” Jarena remarked, looking a bit sheepish as she lightly backed away a bit on her Buneary feet and covered her mouth with her paws. “I know what that feeling is like… it sucks. Trust me, you don’t want this just… swallowing you up like that. It’ll haunt you for a while if you let that happen.”

    As Jimmy had joined the members of Triad, Cassandra wasn’t sure if Avery was aware they had come into contact and now had Jirachi’s star pieces. She looked around, not sure if any ghosts were watching from the shadows, but she needed to be extremely careful. While she didn’t see any in the immediate vicinity among the trees, shrubs, and clusters of rocks, there were still plenty of shadows for prying eyes to hide. If even one ghost heard her mutter Jirachi’s name, it would be a disaster.

    “When it comes to using Nox Purge, we have a helper that can give us what we need to work around the cost of performing that spell, but…” Cassandra broke off, looking around and squinting her Eevee eyes to see if anyone was watching and listening, “well, I can’t say too much. Let’s just say his name’s ‘Lucky’ and you know all about him from the last time we met.”

    “Yes, we have intentions of scouting the abandoned Megamart, hence us looking like this,” Violet told Avery as she looked up them, crossing her arms before looking east. “Ideally, we’d like to get the perimeter investigated, take a look into any rooms that have windows, and see what we’re dealing with to see if this is what they’re using as their home base.”

    “And if you or your Pokmon see anything that looks important, chances are good it should be blown up,” Jarena smiled impishly, winking her Buneary eye. “But hold off on that for now, we’re not planning on attacking anyone or anything. Not yet, anyway! Well, hopefully we don’t have to…”

    Cassandra then looked to Jarena and Violet, giving them a reassuring smile.

    “Alright, Ladies, let’s get Avery back on their own two feet again,” Cassandra encouraged both of them. “Ready?”

    “Roger that,” Jarena smiled.

    “Do it,” Violet confirmed.

    Focusing their attention, Cassandra, Jarena, and Violet had performed Nox Purge enough times back at the urgent care center to know it completely by heart now. While it didn’t require reagents, it did require heavy exertion on those involved with the casting, although now with the three of them working together, it wasn’t teetering on the edge of impossibility like the time only Cassandra and Violet were performing it alone to save Jarena.

    Using Avery’s soul as a catalyst to serve as a restoration basis for their true form, the Keldeo half of her body had melted away into a fading white glow, which had reformed back into two human legs. Once Avery’s legs were restored back to normal and all of the magical remnants that Avery had been afflicted with were purged, the Nox Purge spell concluded. Cassandra, Jarena, and Violet were left feeling like they had just finished a two-hour aerobic workout, but it wouldn’t be long before they were able to catch their breath.

    “Ah there…” Jarena replied with a smile after taking a few seconds. “Now you can wear those cool sneakers of yours again!”

    “Whew…” Cassandra remarked, happy to see Avery back to normal again. “I think after a little break we can ask ‘Lucky’ to take us to the Megamart.”

    And it was then that Cassandra had heard Avery’s phone buzz…



    Aaron
    Route 6, Akala
    Affected RPers: @Chakramaster @Shruikan (maybe) @Noblejanobii @Desolate Divine (Jon & Brianna)


    The power growing within him couldn’t be contained any longer. He had badly wanted to make an epic entrance and scare the wits out of Willow and Jon once his scouts had spotted them and reported their location to him, but he had run out of time.

    As for Aaron’s scouts, Tanya, a short but stocky female witch, Cole, a stoic male witch, and Vic, a lanky and scrawny male witch had reported that they hadn’t seen any signs of Jon, Willow, or even anyone else that the band of witches was trying to find. In fact, they hadn’t even seen any civilians the whole morning.

    But after giving their report, they noticed something different and odd about Aaron’s body and the way he was composing himself in front of them, constantly fidgeting and twitching, but smiling as if he was enjoying the experience of descending into madness.

    “Aaron, what’s going on with you?” Tanya asked, looking puzzled at. “You’re acting a bit weird. Everything ok? You’ve been fidgeting around a lot.”

    “And what’s with those markings on his arms and hands?” Vic asked. “Never seen that before. What kind of spell is that?”

    Aaron just bowed his head down and smiled. He was out of time and this wasn’t about to trigger under what he was hoping for as ideal circumstances, but he could at least have some dark fun with these scouts.

    “Sure, I’ll show you… a neat trick.” Aaron told them in a dark, shadowy voice.

    “Aaron, what the hell…?” Cole asked, knowing that was not Aaron’s usual voice.

    Had Aaron’s attempts to keep the shadowy power contained resembled a balloon filling with water, that balloon would have just exploded.

    Suddenly, shadowy tendrils of dark, negative energy had started to surround his body and soon intensified. The scouts were suddenly aghast, backing away quickly before Aaron’s body suddenly began… to change.

    His skin had darkened thoroughly to a deep, dark purple color as it suddenly began to grow and change shape. His feet had changed to pointed talons as his hands and arms had become ridged wings. His cloak, unable to contain his growing body, had been shredded to pieces as his neck extended outword while his head had changed shape into a three-pronged trident-like shape. And shortly after, pale-blue ridges had appeared on his back as a pronged tail sprouted from his rear.

    Such was the result of Endkath, turning its recipient into an unhinged Shadow Lugia, born from a nightmarish spell that involved the sacrifice of a Dragonite’s heart, ashes of Gracidea flowers, and Lugia’s blood…

    Aaron had enjoyed the experience of his transformation up until he realized not only did it change his body, but it had corrupted his mind. He had assumed he would keep his mental state and personality intact and use the power of this transformation as he wished, but instead, it had flushed his mind with darkness, corrupting his memories and personality. And at this point, all he cared about was power and using it to make the world and everything around him into nothingness. To have as much destruction as he could unleash was all that was on his mind right now.

    His ungodly skreich of blood-thirsty anticipation echoed throughout Akala Island…

    “Oh my god… Aaron, what did you do!?” Cole shouted.

    Aaron. To him, it was a stupid name at this point. A useless, human name that failed to capture just how terrible and magnificent he had become. No, he wanted something far more darker than that.

    “HELLSHRIEK!!” He screamed at them, bestowing a new, infernal identity upon himself.

    To Hellshriek, Cole might as well be some useless, wriggling Weedle that would never amount to anything. But then he decided maybe Cole would have a use after all. Instead of abandoning him for his lack of utility, he wanted to see just how much a Shadow Storm would splatter his body all over the path.

    After unleashing a horrendous gale of infernal devastation upon Cole, entire trees and bushes were vaporized and obliterated as even the ground was thrown violently into the air. The force was so powerful that not only was Cole’s body nearly wholly destroyed and annihilated, but Tanya and Vic, who were at least twenty feet away from the blast site, were nearly reduced to nothing more than a macabre red mist that was sprayed upon the ravaged and splintered trees…

    He had grinned at the aftermath. At this point, he barely even remembered who Agatha was. No, now he was the one in control… and insisted that the world should become a much darker place as he adored the idea of possessing a world of ashes, his dark trophy prize…

    Alisaie Kendo
    Near the Megamart


    Alisaie in a moments notice. Had been teleported by non other than Jirachi, but she still didn't know exactly who she had been talking to or what the goal was. She was disoriented, but had the strength to fight back.

    "Okay, whoever you are. Start filling in some blanks!" She said shakily. Trying to regain her composure and balance as she stumbles to her feet. Why are we near some rundown marketplace? Exactly who are you and most importantly...." She says before squinting and shaking her head as she begins to question. "Did you say my brother...Jimmy Kendo is in his." She pauses a moment before making a face into the air. Thinking whoever is talking to her might be able to see her. Whether they are invisible or just some figment of her imagination. "In his...Pikachu form? Since when the hell can my brother turn into a Pikachu? I saw him as a human not too long ago?" She says in a slightly louder voice.

    "To answer your questions: A) The megamart you see in the distance is where we know these villains are. Whatever schemes they may be hatching. Well, from intel most of them are harbored in there.

    B)"Right now my nickname is "Lucky." Don't worry, I'll show myself to you soon enough. Like your Hoopa.
    I'm a friend. Jimmy told me about your family's backstory. Let's just say, he finally found his match along with Pikachu. We're all besties!

    and 3)"
    Jirachi says while chuckling. "Heheh, those words rhyme. Oh yes! Jimmy can change into a Pikachu at will now! So long as he keeps his pendant on. He can freely change back and forth thanks to me! Do you wanna be a Pikachu too!?

    Alisaie quickly responds, "Bloody...NO!" she yells.

    "Aww, fine. Be that way. You'd be so cute with a heart shape tail though."

    Alisaie glances around for this voice or whatever it was talking to her to see.

    "Okay pipsqueek, Lucky, or whatever you are. Tell me now just where is everyone else? I thought they were supposed to be here. Or do I need to handle things alone?"

    "Oh Arceus no! It's far too dangerous! Please don't put yourself in harms way. Truth is...Jimmy needs you and your Hoopa. He has a plan to help get things back to normal. It just involves using your Hoopa and his rings. He can open a portal outside of this island right?"

    Alisaie glanced to the side as she nods. "I was hoping to keep that a secret in case we got into trouble, but I guess you're a little smarter than I thought. But how is that gonna help anyone? It's not like we can run away and rescue everyone from the island. We've gotta do something about these..." She's cut off as Jirachi interrupts .

    "It'll help us unlock my full power according to Jimmy. Right now my powers are blocked off. Limiting my potential. It's why I helped to create star pieces that are attuned to my power. Giving me a focus point so it limits my power usgae.
    According to Jimmy. If we can use your Hoopa to create a portal to the Observatory...assuming it's not been taken over too. Use another ring to connect to the stars. The southern part of the Big Dipper specifically. Then a third ring to me. It should unlock my hidden powers. Giving me enough potential to change everything back to the way they were here. I might just be able to save those that were so brutally killed if we're lucky. And by my codename I will do my best! So....will you please help us?
    "

    Alisaie paused. Looking to her Pokeball as she called out Hoopa.

    "Well it's not like I had anything else planned today. Tell me where to go and I'll do whatever I can to help." She said as she pat Hoopa on the head.

    Affected RP'ers: @Neo Emolga @Noblejanobii @Shruikan


    Jimmy had finished talking to Jirachi. Rejoining the group while Jirachi talked to Alisaie directly. The others had seemed finished working to transform Avery back into their original form. Worn out and needing rest. They decide to wait before going any further. Needing time to gain some energy back before pressing onward.

    "Hey, good to see back on 2 feet again. What about all of you? Need something to get your energy spurring again? Candy, chocolate, energy drinks? Whatever you may need just ask ah...Lucky! He can provide what you need. Just think and picture it in your mind. Simple as that." Jimmy said as he tried to offer his best to get everyone back in shape. Also trying to buy time until he hears something back on his sister.

    "Jimmy!" Jirachi called to him.

    "Ah, speaking of." Jimmy continues talking through telepathy.

    "She's near the megamart and agreed to help out. She wasn't very happy and she didn't wanna turn into a Pikachu like you said. She would've looked so cuuuuuute! Heheh."" "She's got her Hoopa ready to go whenever, but wants more answers from you. So whenever everyone is ready I can get things done!. Jirachi paused a moment before asking Jimmy sincerely. "Jimmy....are you sure this will work? Are you sure you want to risk this?"

    Jimmy nodded. "It's always been about trying to help others Jirachi. That's the best part about doing the right thing. It doesn't matter what's in it for you. It's about seeing the joy on others faces and the happiness beaming from them as they express just how happy they are. Whatever happens. So long as we do the right thing and return things to normal no matter what it costs us. I think we will be fine. Just take care of the others and try your best to keep watch over Pikachu too."

    Silence between the two went on. Before Jirachi broke the silence. "Okay Jimmy. I believe in you. I'll do my best! Assuming this plan truly unlocks by third eye. I'll do whatever I can to protect everyone. Even those who have already fallen!
    I'll try to rescue them with all my power!
    "

    Jimmy gives off a smile before looking to the sky and letting off a sigh. "Thank you Jirachi. I'm counting on you and Pikachu both."

    Jimmy looks back to the group. Toward Avery. Knowing he has to explain the star piece to them as well. Not knowing if now is the right time, but....how many more chances would he get.

    Avery Miller & Abital Ecke
    Route 4
    Affected RP'ers: @Neo Emolga @Chakramaster @Desolate Divine


    Avery noticed when a Pikachu joined the little circle, quickly deducing that this was likely their old pal, Jimmy. They nodded their head a little as the Triad spoke, not seeing much of a reason to interject as they spoke. Fortunately it seemed there was some sort of secret "benefactor" for the Triad that would allow them to cure Avery of their affliction much sooner than they had anticipated. They did address the benefactor by name, just calling him "Lucky", but from context clues, Avery could tell what, or rather who, they meant. Abital, on the other hand, was completely lost, giving Avery an inquisitive look. Avery quietly signed the word "star", hoping their husband would catch their drift. Abital furrowed his brows in confusion before the realization struck him. He started to finger spell the true name for "Lucky", but Avery quick grabbed Abital's hand to stop him. "Sorry," they said, knowing it was impolite to do such a thing, "we don't know if anyone in Agatha's team can read signs. But yes, that's who it is." Abital nodded in understanding, realizing the mistake they almost made.

    As Abital tried to ponder what having a wishmaker benefactor could mean for them, Avery turned back to the ladies and nodded. "I'm fine with changing back then. It'll make it easier to scout around the base then." Standing back up, Avery got into position and closed their eyes as the Nox Purge consumed them. The Keldeo half of their body melted away in a fading white glow, leaving with their own two human legs again. Fortunately, unlike the last time they had been forcibly changed into a Pokemon, Avery was still wearing their kimono, so they were at least somewhat covered once the transformation was complete.

    “Ah there…” Jarena replied with a smile after taking a few seconds. “Now you can wear those cool sneakers of yours again!”

    Avery couldn't help but laugh at Jarena's remark. "Indeed. Fortunately I packed some extra clothes just on the chance I was able to transform back," they responded, digging those clothes out of their bag and sliding on a pair of pants plus the aforementioned sneakers.

    “Whew…” Cassandra remarked, happy to see Avery back to normal again. “I think after a little break we can ask ‘Lucky’ to take us to the Megamart.”

    Avery started to respond in agreement when their phone buzzed. Unlocking the device, Avery saw their was a message from Jon. It seemed he was finally aware that Avery was caught in the mix of things and was trying to loop the fellow trainer in, which was much appreciated. They weren't sure how Jon had figured it out but they supposed that sneaky Latios of his could have easily spotted them while zooming around the island. That invisibility trick of his was quite useful for surveillance no doubt. Avery's eyes grew wide and they felt their blood start to run cold as their eyes skimmed the checklist that Jon sent them. That... didn't bode well. That didn't bode well at all.

    They knelt down to Jimmy and the Triad and let out a long sigh. "It's from one of our mutual friends," they explained. "He requested I inform you of the following:
    -Eon Squad has located a deserter, who has provided the following intel
    -The Megamart is littered with mine-like traps that are fatal. If you are going there, go with extreme caution.
    -Endgame is within 48 hours, however they will accelerate it by 24 if they get what they are after. We currently possess it, so they will come for us sooner rather than later.
    -Endgame is bad. Apocalypse-level bad.
    -Deserter has agreed to help. Using Wrecking-Ball's abilities, among other things, he is certain they are genuine. Will discuss this more later.
    "

    Avery swallowed roughly after reading the list allowed, deleting the message as Jon ordered. "So that's fun?" they said somewhat awkwardly. "Should we still proceed as planned or-"

    Avery stumbled a bit as the ground beneath them began to heave. Landing on their hands, they waited as the shaking quickly ceased. "Is everyone alright?" they asked quickly, trying to survey the group. Abital, who was now lying on his back, gave a thumbs up before pushing himself into a sitting position. After checking on the others, Avery tried to look around for what the cause could have been. "Was that some sort of earthquake? Or maybe an aftershock of some sort?" they asked, hoping maybe one of the others would have more information.
