    "Rise up and make this city glow"


    ((Yeah, that works! Should we do faceclaims and teams for the twins? And maybe a theme for them? Like, black and white, light and dark, fire and ice, blah blah blah. We can discuss that in our convo instead of here))


    Nova nodded and punched her open palm. "Yeah. Let's go show Team Cult they have no right to do that. People could have gotten seriously hurt tonight."


    She returned Venus, though she, too, hesitated with Keldeo, who regarded her with eyes both boyish and wise at the same time. He had been the one to notice Zekrom's strange aura, and after all, Keldeo had excellent instincts. If anything, he could lead them to Team Cult's base.


    "Ehehe." Nova rubbed the back of her neck as Keldeo tipped his head to one side. "So...how are we getting there, exactly? And, also, minor point, where is there?"

    "First things first, we should probably head to the Pokemon Center and get our Pokemon taken care of. Then maybe we can find some info..." They wouldn't be able to do much without half of each of their teams, so any movement before then was pretty worthless. Plus, it wasn't like Kiata paid much attention to Team Cult either, and had no idea where they should be looking.


    At the same time, Zeraora glanced from Nova over to Kiata, a look of suspicion on his face as he reached out with a claw, pressing the button on the Poke Ball himself. He wasn't overwhelmingly fond of strangers, and it would take time for him to adjust to Nova's presence, especially if they were to travel together.

    "Rise up and make this city glow"


    Nova, who had been fully prepared to just chase Zekrom to the ends of the earth, nodded in agreement and called all her Pokemon back to her Pokemon. She sighed and pinched the bridge of her nose. She'd get Team Cult for this, free Zekrom, and send their sorry asses packing. And then maybe she and Kiata could finish their battle.


    "Right, but before that," Nova said, sticking her hand out towards Kiata. "We've never properly introduced ourselves. I'm Nova of Sinnoh. It's very nice to meet you."


    And she smiled, because even in the middle of a crisis, Nova would never let her manners escape her. If she was t be working with Kiata, you could bet Nova wanted their first face-to-face impression to be a good one.

    "What we're doing here ain't just scary

    It's about to be legendary"


    Kiata smiled back to Nova, and then took her hand and shook it firmly. "Kiata, of Hoenn. I'm glad we finally got this chance... Although I wish we could've finished out battle, and didn't have all this to worry about... Definitely could've met on better circumstances." She was less concerned with politeness and all that, but she would always reciprocate it.


    The only Pokemon she had left out was Briar, and she wouldn't be putting him in his Poke Ball anytime soon. He'd taken his regular place beside her on her left, and about a step behind.

    "When all this is over, I say we have an all-out battle," Nova said. "Nothing official, but then there'll be nothing holding us back."


    Nova, who had never actually been to the Indigo League arena where they were, stepped back to let Kiata leave the way. If Nova hadn't been there, then Kiata probably had. The two of them never seemed to visit the same regions, except perhaps Kalos, as that was the epicentre for all things Mega Evolution.


    Nova had half-a-mind to let Pele out of her Pokeball but held back. If Pele caught sight of Briar, a rivalry would stir up almost instantaneously, and Nova did not want to piss off Kiata or the Sceptile with Pele's overly-fierce attitude.

    (I have no idea where we want them to be city or village wise, or if they're legit at the indigo plateau, so I was vague about the area)


    "That'd be great. I can only imagine the destruction we could cause, battling to our fullest." There was a glint of mischief in her eyes as she spoke, her lips curling into a smile. The competitive fire that burned in her was reciprocated by Briar, who had nodded and let out a fierce "Scep!"


    With that, Kiata was glad to lead the way out. The arena was set a little ways back from the other buildings in the area. This was mostly due to the possibility of battles getting out of control. The arena may be built to withstand a battle, but the surrounding buildings aren't. It was still a short walk through the arena and then out to the Pokemon Center.

    "Rise up and make this city glow"


    ((It could be an arena just outside X city, but there's a Pokemon Centre nearby, so it doesn't matter))


    "We'll need an open field, and no spectators," Nova agreed as she trotted after Kiata, her hands laced behind her head as she gazed up at the clear sky. "Or else people might end up as victims."


    Not that Nova would ever intentionally hurt anyone, like this mysterious Team Cult, though she would most certainly make an exception for those fanatics and their leaders. Nova ground her teeth as they headed towards the Pokemon Centre, down a mostly-empty road. However, even as they walked, more people could be seen, now that the sky was clear.


    "We should hurry," Nova said, and without a second thought, she grabbed Kiata's hand and sprinted into the Pokemon Centre just in time to avoid the crowds flocking back to the stadium.

    "What we're doing here ain't just scary

    Kiata had laughed at Nova's words, shaking her head a bit as she did so. Kanto was a relatively grassy region, so it may be the ideal place for such a battle. She had also noticed the increasing quantity of people, especially since the sky had cleared. What she was not prepared for was Nova grabbing her hand and beginning to run to the Pokemon Center.


    She was dragged for roughly two steps before getting her bearings and running along with Nova. Briar had no problems keeping up, however.


    Once inside, Kiata approached the counter as she unclipped the Poke Balls for Cobalt, Drogon, and Jet from her belt. "I have a few Pokemon that need to be treated..."

    "Rise up and make this city glow"


    Nova nodded and skipped up to the front desk. No one was home, but Nova rung the little bell on the counter before setting the Pokeballs containing Onyxia, Thor and Venus on the counter. The other three, she decided, she would let stretch their legs while they waited, though Keldeo would probably preen under any received attention.


    When no one came, Nova realized Nurse Joy had probably fled like everyone else. Nova sighed, scooped up the Pokeballs and made her way around back towards the machine.


    "Coming?" Nova called over her shoulder at Kiata. "I know how these things work. Should take about ten minutes."


    She set the three Pokeballs down in the machine and stepped back, then pulled two more off her belt. In a flash, Pele and Exclaibur were standing in the centre of the Pokemon Centre, looking around with wide, blinking eyes. Almost immediately, Pele spied Briar, and she straightened up a little, eyes narrowed. Excalibur pointedly ignored the other Pokemon, instead watching people stream past the Centre without so much as a sideways glance.

    Kiata frowned slightly when nobody came to help them, but she supposed it would be reasonable for everybody in the area to flee. What if one of our Pokemon were gravely wounded and needed real medical care? It was quite the negative thought, but since they didn't have that issue, she figured there was no harm done.


    "Yeah, coming." Kiata followed Nova around the desk with her Poke Balls in her hand. "And how'd you learn about these?" Kiata carried around her fair share of different kinds of potions and status healers, but it was always better to leave it up to professionals, in her opinion. That being said, she'd never really paid much attention whenever Nurse Joy was doing something. Maybe I should start...


    Cradling the three Poke Balls in one arm, she placed the other two Poke Balls that contained her Pokemon on her table, but left them there for the moment. Zer isn't overwhelmingly friendly... And Bella is... Well. Bella.

    "I asked Nurse Joy in Eterna City," Nova explained as she sat down on a nearby bench, where Pele immediately jumped over and joined her. "She was really busy after a tournament, and she had a spare machine, so I offered to help. Kinda useful. There are all kinds of abandoned Pokemon Centres with new paths being built all the time."


    Nova leaned back in her seat and sighed, then said suddenly, "Oh, introductions, I guess. You know Onyxia, Thor, Venus and Keldeo. Meet the last of my partners. Pele, my first ever Pokemon, and Excalibur." She refrained from mentioning Excalibur's power and how he was her best Pokemon. Even now, Nova wanted to keep that a secret. She always loved to surprise her opponents.

    "What we're doing here ain't just scary

    Kiata nodded along as she listened to Nova's short story. It certainly would be a useful skill to pick up, and she'd definitely ask Nova to show her later. Hopefully she wouldn't forget to ask before they left, but now was time for introductions.


    She looked over Nova's team briefly. In all, an Infernape, Gallade, Salamence, Luxray, Absol, and Keldeo. A strong, diverse team. "They all look quite strong." She commented before letting out Bella and Zeraora. "You saw Drogon, Cobalt, Jet, Zeraora and of course, Briar. The last piece of the puzzle is Bella." She hesitated for a moment, assessing the Meowstic's mood. The small cat-like Pokemon was staring up at Kiata relatively blankly, which was a pretty good sign. "She's usually a surprise. A little 2 foot tall Meowstic amongst a Sceptile, Garchomp, Lucario, Charizard, and Zeraora."

    "Rise up and make this city glow"


    "No kidding!" Nova exclaimed, indeed surprised to see such a small Pokemon among giants. She edged closer to Bella, careful to keep a respectful distance in case the Meowstic decided to show her claws. "Hello," Nova said to Bella. "How are you doing?"


    Excalibur rolled his eyes at his trainer's antics, folded his arms and went back to watching the doors. Not only standing guard, but also to keep his back to all the non-combat stuff going on behind him. Excalibur was meant solely for fighting. He didn't appear to have time for anything else. Which was why Pele rolled her eyes at him and went to stand beside Nova, reaching out with one hand to see if she could pet Bella on the head.

    "What we're doing here ain't just scary

    Kiata's eyes widened a bit in concern, but stayed silent. She instead slung her bag around and began to dig through it, searching for something in particular.


    At the same time, Bella was watching Nova and Pele with increasing suspicion. "Meoww." It wasn't quite a growl, but also wasn't a friendly meow either. It was relatively neutral, but held the same suspicion as her gaze. When Pele reached for her, her eyes narrowed into slits and her claws did come out, but she was quickly distracted as Kiata pulled what she was looking for out of her bag.


    A blue Pokeblock, which meant it was dry flavored. Bella's favorite.


    Kiata went to pass the block to either Nova or Pele, but left it up to them to decide who could give it to the feisty feline.

  • NOVA PRINCE

    "Rise up and make this city glow"


    Pele growled right back at Bella but snatched the Pokeblock out of Kiata's hands before Nova could so much as blink. Nova stepped back, hands raised in surrender and a coy smile on her lips as Pele held out the Pokeblock to Bella, frowning slightly.


    "Well...I think they'll get along?" Nova said tentatively. Pele enjoyed friendships with Pokemon of more fierce natures like herself, and she seemed to enjoy the challenge of getting Pokemon to open up to her, despite her short-tempered and reckless nature. It was a wonder other Pokemon didn't try and rip Pele's face off, instead of reluctantly becoming her friend.


    The machine in the Pokemon Centre dinged at the halfway point, and outside, only a few stragglers remained. Nova could hear the announcer over the intercom of the stadium, but the sound was muffled by the door, and she didn't particularly care. Especially if they ended up swarmed by reporters.

    "What we're doing here ain't just scary

    "I've had Bella for over a year now and the only Pokemon she actually seems to enjoy is Briar... But I think that's just because his claws are perfect for scratching behind her ears." Kiata then smirked a bit to herself as she shifted her weight from one foot to the other. "I think there's only two things she likes... Snacks and getting her fur brushed - ear scratches on her terms included." The little Meowstic was certainly a fierce one, and that attitude is what drew Kiata to her. If a little Pokemon such as Bella was going to make it on Kiata's team, they'd have to be able to hold their own, and Bella certainly could.


    Bella's eyes widened from slits to a more neutral expression, her facial features softening as she leaned toward Pele. A softer meow escaped the Meowstic, a bit more of a gentle tone displaying her rapid shift in mood. The small cat-like Pokemon reached out her tiny hands, taking the Pokeblock from Pele. With the Pokeblock now in her possession, Bella grinned and let out a purr, sinking her teeth into the treat.

    "Rise up and make this city glow"


    Nova smiled as she watched Pele and Bella interact. Now that Bella was looking less ferocious, Pele reached out with a tentative hand and scratched Bella behind the ears. Pele even took into consideration the whole claws thing, and since the Infernape did indeed have small ones, she made use of them.


    "Isn't that cute, Calibur?" Nova teased, nudging her Gallade in the side. "Maybe you should start making new friends."


    Excalibur gave Nova a long look which clearly stated, "Absolutely not," and went back to watching the now empty-road outside the Pokemon Centre. Sooner or later, people would arrive, and Nova wanted to be out of there as fast as possible. Just as the thought crossed her mind, the machine beeped, signalling it had finished.


    "Perfect!" Nova exclaimed and bounced over, flipping open the machine to collect the rest of her team. "Now then, where to?"

    "What we're doing here ain't just scary

    As the Meowstic made quick work of her treat, she also leaned slightly into the Infernape's touch. Slightly. She wasn't 100% willing to show she was enjoying the scratches, but even she had to acquiesce and admit that it did feel quite good. Very close to Briar, and much better than the Pokemon on Kiata's team. Drogon had claws, but was far too clumsy. And Zeraora was okay, but his claws were too sharp.


    Kiata giggled a bit to herself at Nova's Gallade's expression. It was a familiar facial expression that her own Pokemon had given her a fair amount of times. Her attention quickly shifted to the machine, and she followed Nova and recovered her own Pokemon. When Nova asked her where to go next, Kiata simply blinked a few times, looking out the door. "Um. Don't look at me...?"

    "Rise up and make this city glow"


    Nova sighed through her nose and planted her hands on her hips. She tapped a finger to her lip, then said, "Well, I feel like they'd have a base anywhere near a Legendary. We're in Kanto...so what would be the best place to start looking? You know this region better than I do."


    Nova could only hope they would only have to dismantle one operation to find Zekrom, liberate him, and let the world go back to normal. Because Nova had no intention of chasing a team as fanatical and ridiculous as Team Cult to the ends of the earth, but that didn't mean she would let them stay if this first raid failed.


    Pele chirruped happily as Bella leaned into his touch, and he kept at it. Excalibur rolled his eyes again and kept watch on the door. He grunted as a warning, and when Nova turned to look, she spied several trainers starting to head towads the Pokemon Centre.


    "Right!" Nova said, clapping her hands and returning Excalibur to his Pokeball. She grinned at Kiata. "Back exit?" And she took off down the hall, Pele bounding beside.

    Kiata nodded to Nova, eager to get out before the people could see who they were. She was usually quite fan-friendly, but she had more important things to attend to right now. "Let's go. I'll talk while we walk." She recalled Bella while she was still being scratched behind the ear, her form disappearing right out from under Pele's touch.


    She followed Nova while she thought about Kanto's Legendaries. She knew where each should be, as she'd done research the last time she was here. "So, there's Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Mewtwo. Articuno should be at the Seafoam Islands, Zapdos at an abandoned power plant off of route 10, Moltres at Mount Ember, and... Mewtwo at Cerulean Cave." She then pouted her lips a bit, tipping her head to the side. "We've got a 1 in 4 chance of guessing where to go right."
