Caim had given the command to Angelus to fly on ahead, and reassured her that Sword and Comet would take good enough care of him while she was away. She flew on ahead, taking in Dillon's scent (as a means to track and find him) and swiftly flew on ahead. She cleared the checkpoint and caught up to Dillon in no time.
"What's the story, human?"
"Well, why are we still standing around for" Shadow said, "we need to get moving". With that he started to walk away but realized he had no clue where to go. "Which way do we go again?" he said confused.
For those just joining us, Begin Here, Sorry for Railroading but I think at this point in time its just what we need.
And Yes, I know that Lavender Town Never had a Hotel but if we were really keeping it loyal to the games, it would only be home to 5 people, so just go with it, M'kay :)
The Group looked for traces of the attacker, but found nothing despite hours of searching to even hit at the location of the Kidnapper.
Even Dillon's Gendar could find the Villain due to losing it's trail in a dark tunnel and spent ages following someone else as a result.
With heavy hearts, our Heroes decide to call it a day and resume in the morning.
They booked some rooms in the nearest hotel (Cost them some pokéballs though...).
Dillon and Amaya got a Room together While everyone else got separate ones.
The Time was 8:30PM.
Rocket HQ, ???
The Kidnapper herself returned to base with her prized targets as well with information regrading the Group and their Pokémon.
Another attack would be made soon
At Room #178.
Tomoya and Pikachu were on the bed, Tomoya was watching TV getting news on what was happening in this world, it seemed this world was peaceful...too peaceful, and Pikachu was curled up sleeping on the bed.
Another sigh came from Tomoya but suddenly turned into a yawn, "I have no idea what happened today, I mean I look like this and I have travelled to this world with everyone...ugh, I guess I have to wait for...tomorrow" Tomoya said as he slid himself under the covers as well as Pikachu.
"Night buddy" Tomoya said as he stroked Pikachu and his eyes slowly fell.
'Need more guns' Shadow thought as he cleaned his revolver, "where can I find guns and ammo" he muttered. He was a little pissed that Dillion wouldn't allow him to use guns, "what am I suppose to do.... Beat em to death with a stick?". He didn't even have his favorite knife..... Shadow sighed as he looked out the window. "What the hell am I suppose to do" he said laughing to himself afterwards....
Hiryu washed his face-mask in the En suite after the Nurse gave him fresh Bandages for the bite marks on his forearms.
He left it to dry and sat on his bed and meditated.
Despite his discipline, he soon fell to sleep while Blade toyed with the TV remote.
In the Middle of the night, Blade, who slept on the edge of the bed, heard something from outside.
It sounded like a Pokémon being attacked.
He got up and looked out the Window, the Night was Pitch-Black.
"No! Please! Let Me Go!" The Voice said.
Blade slowly opened the Window and investigated.
Caim and Angelus were lounging in their respective room as well. Caim had let Sword and Comet sit out for the night, and the three were dispersed in their room. Caim was fast asleep with Angelus guarding his side. Sword and Comet were enjoying slumped positions on the floor and in a chair. At the sound of struggle, Angelus lifted a single eye and said quietly, "Sword... Sword, wake up."
"...Huh? What's going on Angelus? Why did you wake me up?"
"There is a disturbance outside. Take care of it. I would prefer to watch Caim should anything get particularly nasty."
The Skarmory nodded, and went to the window (and after Angelus helped Sword open it) hopped on the ledge. To his left, he could see that Blade the Treekco was ready to leave as well.
"Hey, you were the one I carried before... Want a lift? I may not be able to carry my master, but you I can handle with no problems."
"Shhh....you hear that?..." Blade said as the Voice cried again.
"Yes...I'll get the others..."
"No! by the time we wake them up, it might be too late, follow me..." Blade said as he headed out of town and into the grassland from earlier with Sword in tow.
after several minutes of following the cries for help, they found a small mouse in a petty badly hurt state.
"Oh man...What happened?" Blade asked the mouse.
WILL RETCON IF WANTED
The second the Rattata's words reached Blade, a Large Purple Snake with a large scar across his Hood pounced on Sword and soon had it's body Wraped around his Neck.
"Well, Well, Well, We really must stop meeting like this..." The Arbok mocked as it slowly choked Sword.
Blade Froze in fear.
"What's the matter? No Human to save you?...Your mine..." He said as Sword passed out.
He then slid over and towered over Blade.
Sword let out a gagging noise as the Arbok advanced on Blade, "Well then, if you don't struggle, it will be less painful. I might even spare your little friend here..."
Blade knew immedietly that the Arbok meant to eat the three of them, and gave the Arbok a stony glare (Leer) "Never."
The Arbok look slightly unsettled and said, "Huh, you have spunk. This will fun." He smiled wickedly and went in for a Bite.
Blade rolled out of the way and climbed up onto the Arbok's face and Pound On his skull as he swung around trying to dislodge him.
The Arbok let out a screech of pain and began shaking it's head every which way to dislodge the Treekco from it's head. It finally succeeded when it hit it's own head against the ground, and Blade went flying. The Arbok was reeling from the impact, and began spitting Acid wantonly. A bit of it hit Sword and a small hiss, followed by the scent of burnt metal began to fill Blade's nostrils. This would work to his advantage, as the Arbok would have problems smelling Blade.
As the Arbok looked for Blade, He got in a Quick Attack From Behind, driving the Arbok's faace in the ground.
Blade leapt back off and hid in a tall area for grass as the Arbok spat out dirt and insects.
As he recovered, Blade found a Steel Feather that came off Sword, It was sharp like a knife...
"Score!" Blade said before he realised he gave away his position.
The Arbok sniffed the air a few times and shook it's head "Damn that Skarmory's stench. I'll have to melt it down do ingest it properly. Now where did that little nuisance go..?"
It then heard Blade's shout of joy, and then turned with a sadistic grin; "There you are!" And he charged at the location of Blade, getting a Poison Sting ready.
"I've had enough of these games, child! You will finally find your way in my gullet!"
The Arbok lunged at Blade and knocked him to the ground.
He went to close his jaws around his head, but he couldn't.
He felt something in his mouth.
Blade used the Metal Feather to prevent the jaws from closing.
He saw the Fangs hover over his head.
The Arbok bought his head up and attempted to dislodge it without swallowing it.
Blade took the chance to climb on it's head again and used Absorb.
This was much akin to a Sleeper Hold.
Dillon was angry, he had been trying to follow the Rocket grunt, only to lose him.
"I failed, I wanted to get them back, but he was too clever for me, how could I let that happen?"
His head hung low his shoulder drooped Grin looked guilty
"It's not your fault, its mine. I should have caught him, I Screwed it up."
The Arbok gasped a few times, and attempted to move it's head up and get the feather out of it's throat. Blade kept Absorbing the Arbok's vitality; when, in desperation, the Arbok spat Acid again. The feather melted with ease (as it was not as clumped in Sword's wings) and the Arbok reeled from the stench. "I... W-will, eat you... Little pest! Aghhh...."
Blade delivered on more well placed Pound and the Arbok slumped over, nary making a movement of any kind.
Amaya had caught up with Dillon and put her hand on his shoulder. "Listen, all we can do is pickup and move on. We'll get them later." she said.Stella was much for emotions but even she rubbed up against Dillon's leg.
Blade cringed at the Toxins he had to absorb to defeat the Arbok.
He limped over to sword but fainted from Poison before he could reach him.
Him, Sword and the Rattata were out cold for several hours.
Sword was the first to wake up, gagging as he did.
He looked around and found a Rattata and a large strange grass Pokémon with Red Blades on on his forearms.
(This but Red hair(?), Forearm Blades and Tail)
Blade has evolved into a Grovyle!
Blade had transformed while he was knocked out.
There was no sign of the Arbok...
Blade coughed a few times, and smiled, "I take it you took good care of that beast then? Nicely done friend, but I think you're going to have a bit more trouble getting back to your human's room."
With a few creaks and getting up, he walked over to his two comrades, and lightly tapped them with a wing. The Rattata woke with a start, and Sword had to reassure him of his safety, followed by attempting to wake Blade. The Grovyle wouldn't move, so Blade had to place the Grovyle awkwardly on his back, scooped up the Rattata in a claw and flew onward to the Poke-Center.
Caim and Hiryu were woken with knocks at their hotel doors.
Hiryu Awoke with a bit of a shock at the fact he was asleep to begin with.
He preformed a quick stretch and picked up his Sword before going to open the Door.
He didn't take the chain off and peered out though the gap between the door and the frame.
"Who is it?" he asked, keeping his sword out of view.
"Just a messenger from the Poke-Center, sir. The nurse says that one of your pokemon showed up there, a Shiny Grovyle. It came with a bumped up Shiny Skarmory and a Rattata."
At the mention of a Skarmory, Hiryu heard a loud noise and Caim's voice, "A Skarmory? Did it have blue wings?"
Angelus' voice cut in, "Oh no... I sent him out earlier... We must make haste!"
The first voice called back to Hiryu, "I don't know if the Grovyle is really yours, but if it sounds familiar at all; come at once. It was badly poisoned..."
Angelus, Caim and Hiryu soon rushed to the Centre and into the General Ward.
There they found a still-out Blade hooked up to a Anti-Venom Drip, Sword getting checked for Brain Damage, Due to the Choking, and a somewhat grateful Rattata with a cast on one of it's hind legs.
"Blade?...Is that...But...Angelus, Ask Sword what happened!" He said as he checked out Blade's new form.
