Justin Smart, tall muscular and dressed in his sleeveless T-shirt, had just finished signing up for the tournament and headed over to the small arena where he'd be doing his preliminary round. All he had to do was beat one other person to be officially "in" the tournament. He wasn't worried, though. It was a 1v1 fight, and he already knew his chosen pokemon: Hitmontop.

Part of him honestly wanted to throw the match. We'll get to the reason later.

He introduced himself to his opponent calmly, and they shook hands (his handshake was quite firm, though respectful). His opponent looked to be about his age, maybe a bit younger. So, probably late teens. He was young, wore nice clothes and gelled his hair to look purposefully messy. There was a decent sized crowd around their arena, none of them to cheer on Justin. Clearly, this was a pretty cool guy. His name was Keith.

"The 1v1 will commence with each side choosing a pokemon without prior knowledge of his opponent's chosen pokemon. Please select your pokeball now, and do not summon your pokemon until I give the go ahead."

Justin was already holding Hitmontop's pokeball in his hand, so that was easy. Keith seemed to take some time with his decision, but eventually he came to it. "Let's do it," He nodded to the ref. Justin also nodded and the ref took a few steps back and nodded as well.

Hitmontop popped out of his pokeball, and Keith's chosen pokemon was a Weavile. "Aw damn it!" he shouted. "Welp, this is kinda gay. Ice Shard!"

"Fake Out! Mach Punch!"

Justin was so used to the high speed of both attacks, he had gotten used to calling them out in succession. However, Ice Shard was also an incredibly fast attack and Weavile was an INCREDIBLY fast pokemon. Fake Out was instant, so speed didn't matter. It always went first, and so Hitmontop's rapid spinning and clapping his feet did its job in freaking Weavile right the hell out. The damage was also intensified due to Hitmontop's special ability, Technician, which allowed him extra power when using precision or speed attacks with low base damage. Fake Out being one of these moves. Weavile was effectively crippled, but of course still in the game.

Before Mach Punch could land, Weavile was able to pull himself together to shoot an Ice Shard. As mentioned, Ice Shard was faster than Mach Punch, so Hitmontop took the full force of it. He was used to playing a fully offensive game the first few rounds of combat due to the overwhelming power and speed of his early combo. The Ice Shard hit, and it did hurt, but not enough to slow down the Mach Punch. The Fighting type attack completely shattered Weavile's typing. Ice and Dark were both weak to Hitmontop's particularly power attack. He didn't stand a chance. Justin knew it. Keith knew it. This fight could not have ended differently.

Keith sighed as he pulled his Weavile back into the pokeball. "Congrats," was all he said to Justin as they shook hands. He didn't say "good fight," because it really wasn't. There was no fight. But he also didn't say "You got lucky," which he very well could have. The matchup was completely in Justin's favor. Then again, if Keith did say that, he'd have been wrong.

"Thanks," Justin said. "Sorry about the bad matchup."

"Shit happens. Good luck with the rest of the tournament."

It was clear why Keith had so many friends. He seemed like a genuinely nice guy and under other circumstances, maybe Justin would have liked to be friends with him.

So, Justin headed to Round One, the Sky Arena. This fight would not be so easy. Unlike the Prelim, it wasn't rigged.

Pan found herself in the middle of a large crowd on her way to the Sky Arena. Since a match was coming up, it was understandable that a large majority of the visitors were headed in the same direction. This wouldn’t have bothered Pan on any other occasion, but she was carrying files detailing a plan to bring down the event. Needless to say, she was nervous.

Just as she was wondering where she was going to find Justin, Pan saw him…or at least, the back of his head. It would be difficult to get his attention in the midst of the noisy crowd, but she tried nonetheless.

“Justin!” she shouted, waving her hand above the crowd to make her more visible.

Justin heard a familiar voice, which immediately gave him comfort. That comfort faded almost immediately, though, when he realized something wasn't quite right. It was Pan's voice, but she told him she was leaving the country since she was pregnant with his child. So, needless to say, he took a second to process the voice before finally turning.

There, on the ground below the arena, stood the lovely Pandora Gibbs. All the worrying came to a hold when he saw her. The comfort returned. "You're-" he didn't quite know what to say. Beautiful? Glowing? "Here."

Good one, Smart.

"What, uh," Thoughts were going through his head, but the foremost of which was that this event was not going to end like most other events. Something terrible was on the horizon, and Pan needed to be anywhere but here. "What are ya doin' here?"

"Justin..." Pan came to the arena's edge to get closer to him. He looked at her with adoration, and she to him. He was her hero, risking his life to fight the bad guys to allow her to escape. And yet, she was here. Pan had but one task and she failed. She looked up to him, nervous as to what she was about to tell him.

"I stopped here to say goodbye to some friends," she began. "They were waiting for me...I can't remember what happened next. All I know is..."

Pan pulled out the file out of her bag.

"I'm your third."

"You're my-" He immediately began to ask for some clarification, but stopped when it was suddenly clear. "Third." He was told by the lead operator of this mission that, since he and Nate couldn't find a suitable third member of their unit on their own, one would be assigned. He remembered this clearly, because there was a hint of malicious glee in his voice as he said it.

"You're our third. They pulled you into this," He was right so far. "Because of me." He shook his head, disappointed in himself. He was already on thin ice with Team Deception, after having betrayed Dr. Mondo in Lenoilia a few months back. He thought he made up for it when he and Nate saved Helms, a high ranking officer in Team Deception. Apparently, this wasn't fully the case.

"It's not your fault," Pan replied swiftly, "I should never have stopped here." She didn't want to reveal what happened in Lenoilia, certainly not here in public. She wasn't to see his disappointment in her for helping the organization he was trying to bring down. The researcher quickly changed the subject to the file, though she kept the details vague.

"Justin, I read through the objectives. We can't just give them this. No one would oppose them. No one could oppose them."

Justin nodded. He agreed. Pan was completely right in that allowing them what they wanted was completely undesirable. She had every reason to oppose them, and so did Justin. So did Nate, the other member of their group. And yet...

"No," he said, bluntly. "We can't oppose them. It's not the right time."

He was being truthful. There was a plan of sorts in motion, but even if he was lying, he'd happily let this battle go for the sake of ensuring Pan was not involved in the opposition. It was entirely possible that people could get hurt, die even, when the shit hit the fan, and Justin wanted Pan to be far away when that happened.

On top of that, it was possible they were holding something over Pan's head. What other reason would she have of staying? It was important that she fulfill her obligations, and not be in their debt.

Pan was a bit taken aback when Justin answered no. How would they stop TD when they had so many powerful pokemon on their side? If Justin had a plan, he was keeping it close to his chest.

"So...they'll get the device then? And we're supposed to do all the dirty work?" Pan asked, disappointed that the timing was not right for Justin to bow out of the group. "We're going to need a plan then. After this battle, we'll get Nate and meet at the room, OK?"

Pan could not believe she was going through with this. Still, she gave Justin the benefit of the doubt. He knew their enemy better than her, and what they would do should they defy them at the wrong time...

As the crowd grew impatient with the late start of the match, a referee appeared on the stage, looking at Justin and the surrounding crowd. He explained what was going on, making various hand and arm gestures.

"The opponent has not some forth to the stage. As per League rules, he has forfeited the match. The victory by default goes to Justin Smart."

The audience applauded the decision, it was still quite a bit subdued. Most came to see a pokemon battle and were left unsatisfied. Still, a victory was a victory. That meant it was time for the unsavory task ahead of them. Pan looked up to Justin as he made his way off his spot on the arena.

"You sure about this?" she asked him. The researcher wanted to reconfirm that he was dead set on carrying out this plan. A lot of people would be after them should it come to light...
