PANE Team



With Lucie powerless (and probably unwilling) to help out and Moss staying in the safety of the cage for now since he couldn't do much either, that left only Ebony and Ruby to defeat three poachers and their Pokemon teams before the rest of their enemies realized they were attempting to leave.

And with Ebony's injuries from earlier only slightly healed, and his generally low attack power, that really just left Ruby. Regradless, Ebony and his Substitute took up a position on one side of Lucie facing the two dumbfounded poachers who were just now beginning to figure out what had happened while Ruby stepped between their human ally and the female poacher.

While not as good as Scarlet's, Ruby's memory was great. And there was one particular event in the past that she thought might be able to help them here.

It was way back when she and Scott had just found Ebony and Scarlet as Eevees, and had to fight off a Mightyena pack to save them.

Once the Mightyena pack had begun to doubt that it could win, even though they tremendously outnumbered herself and Scott, their ability to fight had fallen apart.

After the fight, Scott had said something about "psychological...... something." She couldn't quite remember what the last part of the term was. Warfare, maybe?

She could see in the eyes of the female poacher's Pokemon that they did not wish to be here. And she knew that there was something else they could see......

She was pissed. She was out for blood now. And they knew that.

In a way, it was probably best that Scott was still out cold. If she caught an enemy, there was nobody who could stop her from simply ripping their throat out. She was quite possibly the most terrifying Vulpix on the face of the planet right now.

And to make things better for her, Scizor was not only injured but weak to her fire attacks. As a result, when she took a step forwards, Scizor took a step back.

Ruby took another step forwards.

This time both Scizor and Heliolisk took a step back.

The female poacher noticed this and started to cry profanities, but only managed to get out a "What the hell do......" before Ruby made her move.

Using all the fire she had compressed earlier in hopes of melting the bars, she used a new move that she had never used before.

Flamethrower.
___________________________________________________

From Ebony's point of view facing away from Ruby, all he saw were the two poachers and their dual Murkrow and Makuhita suddenly recoil in fear staring at something behind him. For a moment he wondered if Lucie had suddenly turned into some kind of monster and attacked the female poacher...... but then he turned around and saw the wall of fire.

Ruby had, in her anger, unleashed a massive Flamethrower. It covered about a 70 degree arc in front of her and went forwards nearly thirty feet. Needless to say, he could not see the female poacher or the Heliolisk or Gurdurr, although the fire wasn't hot enough to cause them to burn up so they were probably still alive.

He could still see the Scizor, though. At the first sign of the incoming fire attack it had turned and ran as fast as it could in the opposite direction. It was still running and disappeared from view behind the barracks-like building on the far side of the camp.

Before the flames had gone out, Ruby turned around and shot a glare at the other two poachers.

They flinched and took a few steps back.

And then the angry Vulpix used Flamethrower again.

Seeing her open her mouth, the two humans screamed and covered their faces. "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...... Huh?"

Then they noticed tat the stream of fire from Ruby this time only went about a foot from her jaws. In her desire to burn the demon poacher to a crisp, she had ended up using every last bit of fire in her internal flame sack. She now had no ability to use any of her fire attacks, and looked completely dumbfounded as to why her attack had failed.

The two poachers looked at each other, and then burst out laughing so hard they were crying. Their Murkrow started that annoying habit of laughing too, although the two Makuhita were smart enough to realize that Ebony was still a threat and turn to look at him instead.

And so everyone was surprised when ran up to one of the poachers with Quick Attack and aimed her jaws right at the guy's neck. The two poachers screamed in unison again and managed to sidestep Ruby before running in absolute terror with their hands in the air. Their Pokemon ran right after them, and Ruby gave chase.

At the same time, a third poacher arrived on the scene with, of all things, a Mightyena that would have scared Scarlet half to death if she had been there. Seeing Ruby chasing the other pair of poachers, he and his wolf-dog chased after her.

Knowing that Ruby needed his help, Ebony and his Substitute chased after that guy and his Mightyena, leaving Lucie and her unconscious team all alone with Moss and the still-out-cold Scott.

Moss didn't really care what Ebony and Ruby did as long as they kept the attention away from himself. He was however concerned with the aftermath of Ruby's flamethrower...... while the Scizor had fled and the Heliolisk and Gurdurr were lying on the ground burned and unable to battle, the female poacher seemed to hve vanished......

The big Lefeon slowly stepped out of the cage and walked to where Scott was lying. The Ranger's bag was sitting nearby, along with his now-bent and still glowing-hot sword and the firecracker-paintball gun, which was out of ammo. Inside that bag was likely to be some food and medical supplies...... and a Fire Stone for Ruby. And most importantly of all, Scott's cell phone.

Moss tried tugging on the zipper of the bag's main pocket, but couldn't get it open by himself. If only there was someone else who could open it......

He looked at Lucie.
__________________________________________________

As Scarlet desperately sniffed at the ground and at the seemingly-friendly Electrike for some kind of clue as to where they needed to go next, the male Trainer she had found called out a Totodile that found a scrap of clothing. She sniffed at it as it was given to a Scyther, and realized that it was actually a part of Ruby's Ranger vest. It must have been torn off when the mutant-Absol-with-wings had attacked her.

It didn't do her much good, but apparently the Scyther had tracking abilities and it took the lead along a small path. The path led over a small stream, and then to a small hill. Just beyond the small hill was a large depression in the ground, that almost looked like a hundred-million-year-old meteor crater.

And within that crater was what appeared to be a square-shaped fort. The area was surrounded by a several-foot-high log wall, although the wall wasn't high enough to block the group from seeing over it from their vantage point at the edge of the crater. Within the wall were three buildings. On the far side of the fort was what appeared to be a barracks or sleeping quarters of some sort, and next to it was a small metal building that looked like a storage shed. On the side of the base closest to them was a house, which likely housed the boss. And between those three buildings were many metal cages of different sizes.

There was only one obvious entrance to the fort, which was (from their point of view) on the far right side of the fort. It was likely the poachers had made some kind of hidden exit to escape from as well, but they would waste time finding it. And besides, there didn't appear to be anyone on watch outside the entry point......

Instead, it appeared that the inhabitants of the fort were all preoccupied with something happening inside the base. From the group's vantage point, they could see two poachers running from something, which on closer inspection was a Vulpix. And the Vulpix was being chased by another poacher, who was being chased by two Umbreon, who were being chased by three more poachers, one of whom was holding a long-barreled rifle. There were also various Pokemon running about after the poachers (or away from the Vulpix and Umbreon).

Scarlet knew very well that the Vulpix could be nobody but Ruby, and one of the Umbreon had to be her brother, although she wasn't sure about the second Umbreon (unaware that it was just a Substitute).

They had started without her!

Turning to her allies, she sent them another telepathic message. Knowing they could see the Vulpix and Umbreon too, she mentally sent them an image.

It was a family picture Scott had taken a few week ago of himself, Ruby, Ebony, Scarlet, and Moss. To caption it, she said telepathically, "They're in there. Help us."

Then, unwilling to teleport again for fear of running out of energy that she needed to battle with, the small Espeon ran towards the fort's entrance.

Unbreakable Team



Fuck this.

Just. Fuck this. Her pokémon had run away and she had just gotten her arm (and part of the side of her face) burnt pretty badly. There was loyalty, and then there was stupidity. Staying meant the female poacher would either get killed or arrested, and there was no way she’d let either of those happen.

Thus she ran away, imitating her abused pokémon.

Back to square one.

-------------------------

A surprised yelp followed by Lucie almost tripping was what Ruby’s sudden Flamethrower had made the chubby girl do, turning her back on the two poachers to look at the scraggly skeleton of a woman running away in lopsided fashion, clearly injured. Screams from the poachers caused Lucie to imitate her earlier reaction, though their laughter merely discouraged her. The Vulpix wouldn’t do anything else, right?

Wrong.

The little fox leaped at the poachers and scared them away, attacking like a wild hound. As she chased them, a third poacher with a huge wolf-like pokémon appeared, but was just as quickly chased away by Ebony and his clone, which left Lucie all alone as silence filled the air.

Lucie was finally calming down and hope filled her. No one was around! She could just run away (as much as she didn’t want to run even more today) and be done with today, with all this poacher stuff. For all she cared, it would only be a nightmare, forever forgotten.

…But as she prepared to walk away, a few things caught her attention. First, she didn’t know her way out of this hellhole of a rainforest. What if she got attacked by wild pokémon while trying to find her way home? Second, she didn’t know how long she’d last without food: for most of the day she was energised by adrenaline and panic, but now she was tired, thirsty and hungry, and she felt it hard. Finally, there was a gentle jingling sound coming from behind her, with gentle thuds peppered in between the jingles.

Turning around, she saw Scott’s knocked out body as well as a rather large Leafeon pawing desperatly at a bag, though it quickly stopped and looked at her with pleading, expecting eyes. After hesitating for half a minute, Lucie sighed and approached him, correctly assuming that he was friends with the Umbreon and the Vulpix.

“Here, I’ll open it for you, but I’m not expecting nothing in return, got it?” she said in a rare, compassionnate tone that (quite hypocritically) tried to sound mean and tough, as if she thought she needed a reason to help others. The zipper was jammed on a piece of cloth, as it so often happened with coats. The portly young lady tugged hard on the zipper and swore under her breath when it wouldn’t budge. When she wisened up and decided to go with dexterity instead of brute force, she managed to unzip the bag slightly, letting her unjam the zipper with a chubby finger and then unzip the whole thing.

“There.”

My Dream Team



Kaya stared open-mouthed at the poacher's base. She was in way over her head. She didn't know what she had been expecting - a few goons like the two that had jumped her, maybe . There were at least a dozen poachers in the camp, many of them carrying rifles. The poacher's pokemon, or at least the ones she could see, didn't ease her nervousnes. Kaya knew she couldn't expect to beat the poachers, at least, not the one with the Mightyenna, but she had promised to help.

As Espeon ran toward the Poacher's base, Kaya stayed where she was. How could she help without getting herself killed? Planning ahead wasn't normally Kaya's strong point, but she was scared. She wanted to minimize the chances of getting shot by one of the poachers, getting mauled by one of the poacher's Pokemon, or suffering some other nasty death.

The best way Kaya could see to help was to find Espeon's Ranger and help him to sneak out in all the confusion. She had no idea what she would do if the ranger were still unconscious, like in the vision she'd seen, or locked up in a cage or something. She just hoped that wouldn't be the case.

Before Kaya could rush into the fray, she remembered one last precaution she needed to take care of. "Manera," she said to her Blitzle, "If anyone approachers with a gun, paralyze them." Manera nodded gravely. Kaya didn't want to give such a mean, illegal order, but if were shot she wouldn't be able to give any more orders at all.

Kaya decided she was as ready now as she would ever be. She ran into the poacher's camp, Manera at her side. She slipped through the unguarded entrance and began looking for Espeon's Ranger. She couldn't see him, so maybe he was in a different part of the base. Either way, she decided it would be better to have another set of eyes searching.

"Beacon," Kaya said, holding out a Pokeball. A three-legged Absol appeared with a burt of red light. "Beacon, do you think you can do something on your own for me? You'll need to be careful. There's a bunch of poachers around here, and a lot of them are armed." The Absol nodded. "Good. I'm looking for a Pokemon Ranger. He has, um, brown hair, I think? Either way, you'll be able to tell by the uniform, right? If you find him, let me know. And come back if I whistle too." Beacon turned an ran into the cages.

Kaya wove her way through cages of Pokemon, keeping her eyes peeled for any sign of Espeon's Ranger. She would have shouted for him, but the last thing she wanted to do was call attention to herself.

Kaya stopped at the edge of a clearing. There was a helicopter in the clearing, but Kaya wasn't particularly interested in that. She could see a flock of Pidgeot not far away, in a net that was fastened to the ground. They were going to be put into cages later, most likely. Kaya decided to go ahead and release the Pidgeot. She couldn't stand the idea of them being sold on the black market. Besides, maybe Kaya or her Pokemon could convince some of the Pidgeot to help find Espeon's Ranger.

Kaya ran toward the net when a burly man stepped out from the mess of cages. "Stop right there," the poacher said in a deep voice. If he was carrying a gun, Kaya couldn't see it. The poacher did, however, have a Growlithe at his heels. Manera jumped between Kaya and the poacher and assumed a battle-ready stance. Growlithe did the same.

"Manera, use Quick Attack," Kaya ordered. Manera charged at the growlithe, head down to ram the Puppy Pokemon. Growlithe jumped to the side and Manera sped harmlessly past.

"Growlithe, use Roar, then subdue this girl before she can use another Pokemon," the burly poacher said. Growlithe gave a mighty roar. Manera reared back in fear, and then returned to its pokeball. Growlithe turned toward Kaya and prepared to attack.

Before Growlithe could attack however, both Growlithe and its trainer were distracted by a bang. A metal cage door flew into the clearing.

"Oh, crap!" the poacher said, and he and his pokemon ran back into the group of cages. They brushed past Kaya, completely ignoring her. A split second later, Kaya found out why they were so panicked.

************************************************************************

Not far away from Kaya, an old charizard had been watching the chaos unfold. He was the length from snout to tail and covered with scars both old and new. One wing was broken and hanging limply from his back.

Memory of the Charizard's capture was still fresh in his mind. He had been hunting, flying in search of prey. Then the poachers had come in their flying machine and caught him in a net. His wing had broken when he had fallen, and they had stuck him in this cramped cage. Nothing had ever made the Charizard more furious.

The Charizard was no idiot. He had known he could not face all of the poachers and win. So he had bided his time, waiting for the time when the odds were in his favor. That time had come. The poachers were scattered, to busy trying to quell other uprisings to worry about their other captives. If the Charizard broke out now, they would never catch him, and he could extract his revenge.

The Charizard swung his razor-sharp claws at the bars of his cage. Somehow the bars stayed intact, but they bulged outward. The Charizard braced its back against the back of the cage and kicked outward with both beet. This time the door of the cafe flew off its hinges, landing a good ten feet away in the clearing. As the Charizard stepped free of his cage, he could already see his first target: the pochers' flying machine. Blew a blast of fire at the flying machine, directing all of its fury into a single devestating Flamethrower attack.

************************************************************************

The explosion was so violent, everything else Kaya had been through that day was nothing in comparison. The helicopter burst apart in a volcano of flames and white-hot metal that scattered all over the clearing. The rush of air caused by the explosion hit Kaya like a wall, and the ground was shaking like during a meteor storm. Kaya stumbled back a few steps before she fell, clutching at her ears.

At fist, the noise had been so deafening that Kaya thought her skull would split in two. Then, slowly, the world became quiet again. Kaya 's ears were still ringing, but she couldn't hear anything else. She was beginning to get scared. People sometimes went deaf from exposure to loud noises. Kaya gave a huge sigh of relief when, after a few minutes, the ringing in her ears stopped and she could hear the flock of Pidgeot again.

Kaya picked herself off the ground. She was glad she hadn't had time to send out any of her pokemon. Who knew what the explosion might have done to their hearing? She held out two Pokeballs, calling out her Drilbur, Miner, and Manera.

"Miner," Kaya said, "see if you can help me get this net loose. Manera, keep watch for any more poachers." Growlithe and its trainer were nowhere to be seen, but Kaya wanted to be prepared in case she had to face them or another poacher.

Kaya walked to the net of Pidgeot and began walking around it, looking for whatever was fastening the net to the ground. She didn't have to look far; she quickly found a metal peg atatched to the net and pushed into the ground. Miner seemed to have found one of his own; he was busily digging not far away. Kaya tried to dig up the peg, but the packed earth was difficult to shovel with her bare hands. She tried pulling the peg, but it was stuck too firmly in the ground. Kaya kept digging, hoping she and Miner could release the Pidgeot soon and go back to searching for the Ranger.

Sebastian West





Was this Espeon leading them into a trap? Sebastian was feeling hesitant to believe anything that the psychic type pokemon was trying to project to him mentally. Always an action first person, Sebastian had Blade scout the area from above to determine if there was actually anything nearby, it was primarily a measure to hopefully avoid a potential trap. Sebastian found himself outside the walls of what looked to be a fort that had been set up as a base, observing from hills outside the fiery haired young adult kept a close eye on any movement from within complex. Sebastian's facial expression looked rather surprised as while glimpsing into the base he noticed many people with guns dressed identical to the guy who had attacked him earlier in the day, the suspicion that this whole predicament was leading him into a trap disappeared as Seb noticed a young Marill wincing in pain as one of the men with the guns shot a bullet at the water type pokemon who was currently trapped inside a cage.

After catching a rather fruitful glimpse of what was going on within the enemies borders, Seb turned to see where Kaya and that Espeon had gone off to. Even the most cocky people in the world knew that invading an enemy base with many dangerous people armed with guns was not a good idea if you were going in alone, however that was the predicament that Sebastian found himself in at the moment. For a moment Sebastian stopped and reflected about the events that had taken place so far, most of them seemed to connect to paint a picture of a possible conclusion, except for that Vigoroth encounter of course, that stupid ass monkey was a psychopath and was willing to attack anything in it's path, especially it's new trainer. Sebastian wondered if his Magby and Elekid somewhere within the base and had previously been captured by the poachers and locked away in cages, the fiery haired boy knew there was really only one way to find out, implementing a plan to success would be Seb's greatest problem though, he wasn't much of a thinker and more of a do-er. Pointing towards the sky he motioned for Blade to once again take flight, keeping his voice low enough so that no-one inside the enemies territory could hear him the boy uttered instructions to the mantis pokemon.

"Blade, serve as a distraction and draw the attention away from Jaws and Myself as we get to work, don't let yourself get caught or shot and wait for my signal though before you make a move."

Blade nodded his head as the mantis pokemon took flight and perched at the top of a large oak tree, anybody who could notice the bug type pokemon must have had a keen eye. Now looking at Jaws, keeping eye to eye contact so to draw the water crocodile pokemon's attention and let it know that he was in a business like state. Jaws was feeling nervous as his trainer stared him down, he wanted to grab his tail and chew on the end of it to comfort his nerves, however he was almost sure that doing that would piss off Sebastian, instead the big jaw pokemon remained silent and still as he awaited his trainers directions.

"Jaws, You and I are going to infiltrate the base and free up some of those caged up pokemon and set them loose on those poachers."

The primary goal of the mission was to locate Seb's Magby and Elekid, however it was most certainly not going to be as simple as waltzing into the base and asking for a tour of the place until he found them caged up nearby. A loud and horrendous sound of an explosion could be heard as flames and smoke emerged nearby, it was almost like someone had purposefully set up a distraction for Sebastian and his team. Glancing over the hill and into the enemy's base, Sebastian noticed quite a number of poachers who were dressed in black clothing running towards the place where the explosion had taken place. Rising to his feet Sebastian motioned for Blade to take flight and reveal himself to what poachers had remained behind. Sebastian and Jaws frantically begun to move towards a rather decent sized hole in a make-shift fence. Leading the way through Jaws squeezed through the gap much easier then his trainer. Sebastian had a look of shock on his face as he noticed no poachers within the vicinity, the explosion had drawn so much interest that they all must have left there post, except for one guy.

"Hey twerp, what the fuck do you think your doing in here!"

Without hesitation the man raised his gun and aimed it towards Jaws, a few seconds later he shot a single bullet rapidly towards the big jaw pokemon. Moving swiftly Sebastian grabbed onto Jaws' tail and tossed him a few metres to the left and out of the bullets path before dodging the incoming bullet by jumping to the ground, face against the ground. It was a very narrow miss that could have potentially ended up worse, however the poacher now looked even more pissed then before as he begun to close the distance between himself and Sebastian, inevitably the closer he got, the more accurate and powerful his shot would be. Sebastian was literally frozen in the spot he lay, he was sure his life was about to end here and now as he clenched his teeth, never before had he been so afraid of somebody else. The poacher aimed his gun towards Sebastian's head as a smirk could evidently be seen on his face,

"This'll teach you, you little shit!"

Sebastian braced for what he believed was his impending death. It never happened though. Everything went silent for a moment before the man with the gun collapsed next to Sebastian, eyes closed. Sebastian's heart was racing as he raised his head and noticed Blade standing over the top of the poachers unconscious body. Slowly rising to his feet Sebastian nodded his head towards Blade in thanks for saving him from death, nearby Jaws had been distracted by a Cranidos trapped in a cage who was whining like a baby, the big jaws pokemon felt a sense of sorrow for the head butt pokemon. Sebastian picked up the unconscious poachers gun, it was loaded with bullets, however despite the cocky self-inflated personality that Seb possessed and despite his criminal actions, he had never actually shot a real gun. With the hand not holding the gun Sebastian motioned for Blade to take flight once again, he would prove to be a scout on the lookout for any possible dangers to his team.

Nearby Jaws the Totodile was chewing away at the cage with Cranidos trapped inside, the metal bars slowly but steadily breaking due to the strength that Totodile had in his jaws. Finally a gap big enough for the Cranidos to escape from was made as the head butt pokemon rubbed it's skull up against Jaws' face, it was it's way of thanking him for saving him. Cranidos wasted no time in using it's incredibly strong skull to help other pokemon escape from their cages, Jaws helping with the effort as well. The pair worked well together as they helped all different sorts of pokemon, big or small escape from their enclosures. For the first time in a long time Sebastian actually had a small but real smile on his face as he admired the work his team plus Cranidos were doing to help, the fiery haired boy was confident that it wouldn't be too long until he found his Magby and Elekid. Keeping a hawk like eye on his surrounding, Sebastian had realised that sector that he and his team had taken over had no poacher guards nearby, however the boy was sure it wouldn't be long before there position was breached. Quietly Sebastian's confidence was growing as more and more pokemon emerged from their cages, not only was the fiery haired young adult now armed with a gun but he also had his own enraged Vigoroth still encased in it's pokeball until he though the time was right to unleash the beast from inside.

With a quick teleport, Scarlet moved from the ground on top of a tall reinforced-steel cage that was currently empty. From here, she tried to use her psychic powers to survey the area to determine where she needed to go next.

But there was so much chaos and so many lifeforms of both the human and Pokemon variety that her powers were overwhelmed. As a result, she lost track of not only the two humans that had been helping her, but also of Ebony and Ruby.

As she came to a quick "I don't know what to do next" conclusion, she was nearly blown off the top of the cage by a large explosion. All sound stopped reaching her ears for about a minute before she regained her hearing and stood back up to investigate the cause of the blast.

It appeared a Charizard was loose, and the fire dragon was causing destruction to everything it saw that looked like it belonged to the poachers. The female human was nearby, but she looked uninjured and was attempting to free some birds.

Scarlet could not see the male human from her vantage point, but she could see his Scyther flying around, so he must have entered the base too.

The poachers seemed to be split into three groups. One group was on the far side of the base, probably near Ebony and Ruby. The second group was converging on the wild Charizard, and by extension, on Kaya. A third group was gathering outside a house in a corner of the base not far from her position. It appeared they were trying to regroup, and possibly were waiting for someone. Maybe the lead poacher was outside the base?

She desperately wanted to find her Trainer, but Kaya might need some help soon and she couldn't just abandon the human and her Pokemon team now that she had led them here...... but they would never win on their own, even with an enraged Charizard on their side.

So the little Espeon set to work trying to free some reinforcements by opening the cages near her. Her method was simple- she was not strong enough to break the cage bars or the padlocks, but using her telekinetic powers to remove the screws that fastened the door hinges to the cage was much easier. Scott had taught her to do just, in fact, in case she was ever alone with some caged Pokemon.

Plus, it was much quieter than blowing up a helicopter, and also far less noticeable than Ruby's Flamethrower.

There were four occupied cages near her.
The first held ten Zigzagoon. They didn't seem like they would be of much help, instead simply scattering in every direction, but having them running around trying to escape would at least distract the poachers.
The second one held a Riolu. Helpful.
The third one held a Tropius, who didn't really seem to want to leave the safety of the cage, so it was of no help.
The fourth cage held four Deerling, who simply ran off like the Zigzagoon did.

In other words, from four cages the only ally she managed to find was a single male Riolu. With a single telepathic command, she sent him off towards Kaya and moved to four more cages.

The first cage in this set was empty.
The second cage held both a male and female Leafeon and three Eevees, all of whom refused to leave the cage's safety.
The third cage was also empty.
And the fourth cage held an aggressive Carnivine, who tried to eat her the moment she let it out.

She quickly fooled the Carnivine by teleporting behind it, and the hungry vine-thing set its sights on a poacher who had just arrived on scene instead.

So that set of cages had no allies for her. On to a third set.

The first one held three Growlithe, who seemed to be eager to join the battle.
The second cage was empty.
And the third and fourth cages were badly damaged and missing their doors. The third cage had a few unconscious Pokemon inside it, while the fourth cage was empty. And next to that cage......
_________________________________________________________________

After Lucie opened Scott's bag for him, and then said something about something which he didn't understand- was she talking about food?- Moss went digging through the bag, and quickly found one of the two items he was looking for.

It was a leather pouch that was tied shut by a string, and appeared to be glowing orange. The pouch was quite warm to the touch, and Moss had little doubt that if Lucie knew what it was, she'd go running off with it to sell it for money.

Inside was Ruby's Fire Stone, and it was about a third larger than most Fire Stones and thus was worth about a third more. It was a flawless stone, and Moss knew enough about it to know that most jewelry-making humans would do anything to get it so they could cut it up and use it in place of things like diamonds or emeralds.

That mad Vulpix probably wanted this stone, and it would get him on her good side later on, which had plenty of benefits.

The second item that the Leafeon was looking for was right below the stone's pouch- Scott's cell phone. As with all Rangers, the phone had been modified with a special SIM card and other hardware that allowed it to connect to not only the cellular grid but also to a military satellite network that was used by Furoh's law enforcement, Rangers, and Coast Guard since the region didn't have an actual military right now. As a result, the phone could always connect if long as the user had a view of the sky.

But Moss was a Leafeon. He couldn't use a cell phone even if he wanted to. And the pudgy human girl next to him didn't seem like the type who wanted to call the police to help out, and in any case she seemed more interested in the Fire Stone's pouch that was sitting at his feet.

That was when the girl reacted to something. Fearing an attack, Moss turned around...... and found Scarlet rubbing up against the girl's legs with three Growlithe behind her.

Help had finally arrived!

And to make things better, Scott was finally starting to wake up.
________________________________________________________________

It had been a bad day. First he'd had his head smashed by a shotgun barrel, then he was burned, shot with exploding paintballs, and finally knocked out a second time.

He couldn't move anything but his head and left arm. Everything below his shoulders was in so much pain that he was paralyzed, and his right arm was also immobile below the elbow, since that happened to be where one of the firecracker paintballs had hit and caused a burn.

But as he opened his eyes, Moss was there. And so was Scarlet, and that girl from earlier he'd been trying to help when this whole thing started. And three Growlithe too.

Scott was lying on his stomach, with the giant burn from the super-heated sword across his back. Of course, most of the paintballs had hit his stomach and chest, so it was still really painful to be lying down like that......

As he regained his senses, he noticed all the fire caused by Ruby's flamethrower, and the smoke from a differet area where the helicopter had used to be. Was the base under attack?

That was when he realized that Moss was holding his cell phone in between the Leafeon's jaws. His grass-type seemed to want him to call for help with it...... which meant the poachers weren't under attack from the Rangers or the police, but from someone else.

Using his good arm, he took the sightly-slobbery phone and opened up the texting app. It was a special app used by law enforcement, and thus automatically added itself to various contact lists based on location.

Using it, he sent out a single short text to every Ranger, policeman/woman, and civilian with a police scanner on the entire Fidona island......

Code 34.

It was law enforcement code for "Officer down, in need of immediate assistance." The text message was also accompanied by his GPS coordinates.

By the time they arrived, he'd probably already be dead, but maybe his Pokemon and this girl could be saved.

That was when he remembered that almost every single law enforcement helicopter on the continent had be grounded due to the event earlier in the day. In other words, help was likely not coming until tomorrow at the absolute earliest, unless there was a group of civilians with a police scanner nearby.

He looked at Lucie and started to say something, before he noticed a Pokemon standing behind her. It was an Absol, and for a moment Scott thought he was doomed and that the poacher boss was here to finish him off...... before he realized the Absol had only three legs.

It also appeared well-fed, so it must belong to someone. But it wasn't hostile, so it didn't belong to the poachers......

So he asked Lucie, "That Absol...... is it yours?"

He paused for a moment, and then managed to cough out, "And where...... is my Vulpix...... and Umbreon?

My Dream Team



Beacon ran among the cages, ignoring the Pokemon inside. She had seen a few humans matching Kaya's rather vague description, but judging by their deadly firearms and the harassed state of many of their Pokemon, they were most likely poachers. Besides, none of them were wearing anything remotely like Pokemon Ranger uniforms.



Eventually (after a ear splitting noise and a tremor that knocked her off her feet), Beacon came a pair humans and a group of Pokemon. Beacon ducked behind a cage before she could be seen. If the humans were poachers, the Beacon didn't want them to see her. However, they didn't look like poachers to Beacon. One human, the girl, looked to be scared and out of place in the chaos. The guy was a wreck, chained to one of the cages, unconscious, and covered in burns. Would poachers treat one of their own so cruelly? More importantly, a Leafeon in the group was wearing a Ranger uniform.



Beacon made up her mind as an Espeon, also in a Ranger uniform, ran to the group and began rubbing affectionately against the girl. If the uniformed Pokemon were treating the humans so kindly, then the humans wouldn't be poahcers. Besides, the Eeveelutions might be able to lead Beacon to their trainer. Beacon walked tentatively toward the group as the man began to wake up.



"Excuse me," Beacon said to the Espeon, who was the nearer of the two. "Where's your trainer?"



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



The first group of poachers had already found Charizard. One sent a Herdier to attack Charizard, but he swatted it away. Charizard blew a stream of fire at the poachers and their Pokemon, causing them to scramble backwards to avoid being burned. It was a shame there were no water or fire types among them. It would have been a welcome challenge.



"The tranquilizers!" one poacher said, and he and his Glameow fled. Most of the other poachers and their pokemon fled as well. Charizard snorted indignantly. 'Cowards.'



Charizard lumbered into the clearing where the flying machine had been, seeking more poachers to face. A group of humans nearby caught his attention. Charizard roared his challenge and began stalking towards the humans. Maybe these would have some backbone.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Kaya whirled around as she heard the sound of tramping feet behind her. A group of five poachers were coming in her direction, to check on the helicopter most likely. They skidded to a halt, staring blankly at Kaya. The poacher in front recovered first and drew his pistol.



Before Manera could respond, a blue streak rammed into the poacher's legs, knocking the poacher's feet out from under him. The blur stopped; it was a Riolu. Riolu exchanged a few short words with Manera and the two Pokemon got in battle stances side by side.



Before any more fighting could take place, a thundering roar filled the air. Kaya turned around to see a massive Charizard in the helicopter's clearing, walking towards her.



This was bad. This was really, really bad. Charizard looked angry. Kaya didn't want to be caught in the crossfire between Charizard and the poachers or, worse, treated as an enemy by both. But the Pidgeot still weren't free. Kaya didn't want to admit it, but, if she wanted to escape, abandoning the Pidgeot seemed to be the only option.



Kaya was beginning to reach for Miner's pokeball when Miner gave a happy cry. He had dug up enough pegs for the Pidgeot to escape. Pidgeot began streaming from the net, filling the air with the sight and sound of pounding wings. A pair of talons gripped Kaya's shoulders, lifting her into the air. A second Pidgeot picked up Miner and Riolu, while a third grabbed Manera. Charizard and the poachers mostly ignored Kaya and the Pokemon, focused more on fighting each other. They were safe.



Kaya looked down as the camp passed below. This would be an excellent opportunity to look for Beacon, or Espeon, or the missing Pokemon Ranger, or Scyther's trainer, or anyone friendly for that matter.



Kaya smiled, relieved. On the ground, next to some busted cages, two humans, and a number of other pokemon, were Beacon and Espeon. They were okay, and Kaya wouldn't have to be on her own.



"Can you please let us down over there?" Kaya asked her Pidgeot. "Next to that Absol? Don't worry; she's on our side." Kaya's Pidgeot called to the others and dove toward Beacon. Pidgeot dumped Kaya unceremoniously onto the ground, with Riolu, Miner, and Manera landing in a pile beside her. Then the whole flock landed a little ways away, watching the group.



After making sure that Beacon was okay, Kaya turned her attention to the two humans, the guy in particular.



"You're a wreck," Kaya told the man, forgetting all sense of tact. "What happened?"

"I ran into...... some really...... really bad luck. Met a poacher...... who I previously defeated. Didn't end real well."

Scott was having difficulty speaking, but still he managed to finish his sentence.

He then stated the obvious. "I...... can't move."

To be honest, he couldn't even see who he was talking to. She- at least he thought it was a she based on the sound of the voice- was off to his side or behind him somewhere. He wasn't sure when she'd shown up, either.

It seemed that Ebony and Ruby really weren't nearby, however. Scott really wanted to know where they were at and if they were okay.

"Can you...... find the rest of my team? I have an Umbreon and a Vulpix...... in addition to these two...... names are Ebony and...... Ruby."

He couldn't live with himself if he left them behind in a place like this, so he didn't eve try to think of a way to escape the poachers yet.

Not too far away in one of the outpost's corners, a battle could be heard. It was likely they were over there somewhere.

~~~~~

Ruby's fire abilities were slowly beginning to return. At least, she could use Ember again, although only with a significant pause in between attacks.

And Ebony was getting beaten up. He'd already lost once earlier, and since he lacked any truly damaging attacks, he was having a very hard time trying to help out his ally.

The poachers they had been chasing had regained their composure and turned on them, and then they had been quickly surrounded. The pair had tried to break out, but had ended up running in to the corner of the poacher base's walls. So with the walls on two sides and eight poachers and their Pokemon on the other two sides, they were horribly outnumbered.

The only lucky thing was that these poachers had weak Pokemon and no weapons to attack with.

On the other hand, while the poacher boss and his Absol and Chatot were nowhere to be found, his Umbreon had joined the fight. The poachers were rallying behind it, and the dark Eeveelution was easily taking all the damage Ruby and Ebony could throw at it.

They needed help, and soon.

Unbreakable Team



Lucie didn’t react too badly to Scarlet coming back, as she was actually being rather affectionate. The three Growlithes with her did concern her, but they did seem like docile-if-not-nervous puppies, and they seemed to have been following Scarlet to her, so it was okay. Lucie even let a small smile stretch her lips, though it didn’t stay long as the young man she saw getting tortured started waking up. She felt a small tinge of relief, something she didn’t expect. She had never really felt empathy, what with being very sheltered and never really going outside.

An Absol? What was he on about? “What? I don’t have an Abso- Ah!” Lucie turned around and cowered a bit, getting a small dizzy spell that lasted for a few seconds as she did, but the three-legged Absol seemed gentle enough and, most importantly, not hostile. “I-I… no, it’s not mine, my pokémon all got injured earlier,” she stated, regaining her cool, though she did sound saddened when she mentioned her only friends. “As for your pokémon, they ran off to fight those people, don’t really know where they went,” she continued, sounding a bit clueless.

It was then that a flock of overgrown Pidgeys appeared and dumped a girl and her pokémon near them. Nearly immediately, the girl, who luckily didn’t seem hostile, noted that Scott was a wreck and talked to him, completely ignoring her. Feeling rather insulted, Lucie couldn’t help but snap at her. “And I’m scared out of my mind, starving, borderline dehydrated and exhausted, thanks for the concern,” she said unhappily, even pouting a bit.

Scott insisted on seeing his two pokémon. In a way, Lucie could understand why, but her new emotion was getting a bit overpowering in a way that made her act unreasonably by her standards. She should already be running away and leaving those idiots to fend for themselves, so why was she still standing there and actually thinking? To be fair, she didn’t care much for the rude girl, but after seeing this young man try to help her, then get captured and tortured, she felt something else that was new: responsibility.

“…Well, why don’t you go look for them, young lady? I mean, I’d love to, but… my pokémon are out of commission and there’s no way I’m running in there,” she proposed, looking at Kaya. “So between me or you staying, it’d be better if I stayed… speaking of which, you don’t happen to have anything to help my pokémon, right?” she said, addressing Kaya before switching her focus to Scott, getting another tiny bout of dizziness that she didn’t mention. To make it clear that she had no intention of following Kaya (even if she did, she knew she wouldn’t be much help), she fully turned towards Scott, almost tripping on her oversized dress. “…Think… it’d be better if you were sitting?” she asked awkwardly, clearly completely out of her element. All she knew about this came from movies and TV shows and video games, how was she supposed to know what to do?

Kaya looked at the other girl in the group. Kaya was immediately annoyed by her whiney tone. However, the girl was right: Kaya had been ignoring her.



"Sorry," Kaya said, rubbing the back of her neck out of awkwardness. "He looks a lot more . . . well . . . half-dead." Kaya considered asking the girl if she were okay, just for the sake of formality, but there wasn't any point. Kaya already knew perfectly well how the girl was, and there was nothing she could really do about it.



Then the man (Kaya was pretty sure he was the missing Ranger.) asked about two of his Pokemon that were missing. Before Kaya could reply, the other girl asked if Kaya could go after the man's Pokemon, since her own were all fainted. And while she was at it, did Kaya have any healing items?



"Well," Kaya said after the girl had finished talking to the ranger. "I've got some berries, if that help. Oh, and speaking of out-of-commission Pokemon," Kaya pulled a Pokeball from her belt, "Did either of you lose an Electrike?"



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



The Pidgeot watched closely as the humans had their conversation, even if they couldn't understand what was being said. The girl that had released them from the net had seemed nice, but they weren't about to let their guard down. If these humans were affiliated with the ones that had captured them, then the Pidgeot wanted to be ready to fight. If, however, the humans were going to oppose the poachers, the Pidgeot wanted to help however they could.



There was noise indicating that a fight was nearby. A pair of the Pidgeot took off to investigate, while the others stayed to watch the humans.



The fight the two Pidgeot found was obviously one sided. Numerous humans and their Pokemon were attacking a Vulpix and a Umbreon, each wearing an orange vest. What the Vulpix and Umbreon were before they had gotten in the fight, the Pidgeot didn't know. However, they were fighting the poachers, and that was enough for the Pidgeot. They would help.



The two Pidgeot dove toward the poachers and their Pokemon, talons poised to strike and battle cries screaming from their beaks.

OOC- Shorter post than I'd like because I have to go to work...... but this'll do.
__________________________________________

Scott watched a small flock of wild Pidgeot take off and leave, then looked back towards Kaya. "I don't...... remember seeing one anywhere. It's...... definitely...... not mine though."

Moss pulled a large pouch out of Scott's bag. The pouch held berries, mostly Oran and Leppa, but they wouldn't do much good for a Pokemon that was already knocked out and Scott had no Revives or Reviver Seeds. Plus, the poor Leafeon wasn't experienced enough to know Synthesis to heal Lucie's Pokemon himself, so there wasn't much he could do. He dropped the pouch next to Scott's arm.

If the berries make me feel better, they should make him feel better too...... right? Moss wondered.

Scott looked at the berry pouch but didn't take it. Instead, he spoke to Lucie. "Probably better...... not to move me yet."

He opened his mouth to say something more, but then Scarlet suddenly looked off to one side, disturbed. He looked too, and saw it.

The poacher boss had arrived and was standing a distance away with his Chatot perched on one shoulder. And that mutant winged Absol was much closer to them and slowly walking closer.

Behind the boss were four other poachers with varying types of Pokemon.

"Uh-oh...... not again...... you two must...... be very careful around that...... thing. But if you can...... defeat it...... maybe the other poachers will...... flee."
__________________________________________

When it started raining angry Pidgeots, the boss's Umbreon darted forwards. None of the wild birds had aimed for him, instead mostly going after the humans instead which left most of the other Pokemon confused about what to do. The boss Umbreon knew what it had to do, though- win by any means necessary.

Of course, he targeted Ebony first, since they were the same species. The two Umbreons both used Quick Attack on each other, slamming into one another with considerable force. However, the poacher Umbreon was older and weighed more, so he was able to knock Ebony to the ground.

Before he could really hurt Ebony, though, Ruby jumped on his back and bit down on the side of his neck. With everyone else distracted by the Pidgeot, she was able to focus everything she had on the Umbreon.

The Umbreon howled in pain and fury.

Charizard stalked amongst the cages, searching for more poachers to fight. He had not seen any humans since he had made short work of the ones near the net that had, until recently, been filled with Pidgeot.

Well, the Pidgeot had carried away one young human as they escaped, but Charizard would let the Pidgeot take care of that human. The Pidgeot deserved a bit of revenge well. Besides, the human girl had been only a hatchling, inconsequential in Charizard's eyes.

Charizard lifted his head, listening. Not far away, a human was shouting. So that was where the poachers were. Charizard announced his coming with a fierce roar, then began to lumber toward the noise of the shouting human.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kaya stared open-mouthed at the approaching. . . whatever it was. Kaya had never seen an Absol with wings. Either the Absol-thing was some sort of mega evolution, or it was from a horror movie, or both. Even if the Absol-thing had not had the wings, Kaya could tell that it was way out of her team's league.

Kaya turned her stare onto the Ranger when he suggested that Kaya fight the Absol-thing. Was he out of his mind? Her Pokémon wouldn't last two minutes in a fight with that thing, let alone beat it.

Manera gently headbutted Kaya to get her attention. "Bli," Manera said. She looked first at Kaya, and then at the Absol.

Kaya may not have been able to understand Manera, but Manera's point had come across clearly enough. They were utterly doomed anyways, so they might as well go down fighting.

Kaya took a shaky breath and began to give orders. She had to shout to keep her voice from shaking. "Manera, use Thunder Wave. Miner, use Mud Slap. Beacon, use Pe- Quick Attack." Kaya decided against Perish Song at the last second, remembering that it would end up knocking out a lot of friendly Pokemon as well as the mutant Absol. Kaya pulled two Pokeballs from her belt and held them out. Pede-erpat the Venipede and Attila the Psyduck appeared in a flash of red light. "Pede-erpat, use pin missile. Attila, water gun!"

As Kaya's pokemon ran to obey their orders, Kaya heard a roar. Kaya's heart skipped a beat. She had forgotten about the minivan-sized Charizard from earlier, and now that she remembered, Kaya was sure the battle is about to get a whole lot worse. Kaya was sure Charizard would attack the poachers, but what if, when and if Charizard reached the fight, it mistook Kaya, the Ranger, and the other girl in the pink dress for poachers? Even if Charizard only attacked the poachers, Kaya and the others would all be caught in the crossfire, which would be just as bad.

Then another thought hit Kaya. What if it wasn't the escaped Charizard wasn't the one who had roared. What if it was a different Pokemon, one that was on the poachers' side?

"Any idea how to get out of here?" Kaya asked, her voice rising to a squeak at the end of the question.

˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜

Surprise had been on the two Pidgeots' side, and the poachers were thrown into chaos. Some of the poachers fled. The others were shouting orders to their Pokémon, but to no avail. Even when an order was heard above the noise, the Pokémon wouldn't have the chance to act before the Pidgeot flew out of range or attacked it. In the meantime, the two orange-clad Pokémon were subduing the Poachers' chief Pokémon.

One of the Pidgeot called to the other. Weren't there other orange-clad Pokémon with the humans that weren't poachers? Surely the orange-clad Pokemon must all be part of the same flock, right?

The Pidgeot didn't bother to ask. They simply swooped down and grabbed the orange-clad Pokemon in their talons and lifted them into the air. The pidgeot carried their load to the group of humans, dumping them on the ground before rejoining their flock.

Using Moss as support, Scott was able to sit up. He was starting to get used to the pain now, so he was slightly better able to move, but more importantly he could speak better than before as well.

He tried to remember back to the fight on Mt. Arasam against the Absol. The only reason he was able to beat the Absol was because he'd used a wild Rhydon to knock it into an open cage and had then locked the cage, preventing it from getting out. In the meantime, he'd manage to scare the Umbreon off while his ally Cesc had defeated the Chatot and all the other poachers. Plus, he'd had help from a wild Absol and a wild Glaceon.

But all he'd had back then were a pair of little Eevees and a weak Vulpix. Ruby was more than twice as strong now than she had been back then, and Ebony and Scarlet were probably at triple their previous skill level. And he had Moss too. And although Cesc was gone, this other girl seemed relatively strong, and they had an angry Charizard on their side.

Where is Amber when I actually need her help?

The Charizard seemed to be mostly focusing on the human poachers and not their Pokemon, but this prevented any of them- the boss included- from giving orders. In any case, everyone but the mutant Absol was now distracted by Charizard, including the boss's Chatot.

As he thought about what to do, a pair of Pidgoet came by and dropped off Ebony and Ruby. His Vulpix seemed fine, but Ebony wasn't doing so well. He had several bruises on the front half of his body and one of his legs had been torn open and was bleeding pretty bad. When the two Pidgeots had attempted to pick up the Vulpix and Umbreon the boss's Umbreon had grabbed Ebony's leg with his teeth and attempted to be carried with him. Ebony had managed to shake him off and the other Umbreon had fallen down somewhere, but he'd lost a good portion of skin and fur at the same time.

Ebony fell sideways to the ground, and Scott managed to find his dark fox's Great Ball in his bag and recall him. He recalled Moss as well, since the Leafeon was useless in this kind of battle.

"We can use the Pidgeot to get out of here...... but that Absol...... will attack while we try to leave. Have to...... defeat it first...... or it will fly after us."

Kaya seemed to have a nearly-full team of five Pokemon, whom didn't appear to be injured. With Ruby and Scarlet supporting, it was seven on one, before including the Riolu and the multiple Pidgeot and any other wild Pokemon that decided to assist, such as possibly the Charizard.

Scott had other plans for Scarlet, though, so she wouldn't be fighting. Out of the corner of his eye, Scott also noticed that the chubby girl from earlier was gone. She'd likely run off just before the enemy Absol had shown up.

"Ruby...... assist her. Scarlet...... please get his chain...... off of me. And then...... find my weapons." He pushed weakly at the chain that attatched one of his arms to the cage that his Pokemon had previously been in. The poacher boss had taken his firecracker gun, and he could see it stuck in the guy's belt. He could get it replaced, but they weren't cheap. His sword, meanwhile, was lying underneath a tree not too far away.

As Scarlet turned to look at the still-slowly-approaching Absol and Ruby lined up behind Kaya's Pokemon- all of whom had started using their own attacks- Scott noticed something in the small pocket on top of his Espeon's vest. "What...... is that?"

It took him a moment, but he was able to get the pocket's zipper open, revealing the handgun Scarlet had picked up earlier. However, it had no ammunition left, so it was useless. Using it to trick people wasn't his style, so he set it aside. As soon as he had zipped the pocket back up, his Espeon teleported over to his sword, picked it up with her teeth, and teleported back with it before teleporting a third time to a location he couldn't see.
_________________________________________

Ruby didn't attack, but that still left four incoming ranged attacks and a Quick Attack-using Absol for the opposing Mega Absol to deal with, along with a flock of Pidgeot circling overhead. However, the Absol didn't appear concerned at all.

Using his wings for extra lift, he jumped high into the air, dodging all four ranged attacks and leaving that girl's three-legged Absol behind.

As he was his master's favorite (for good reason), he had access to all sorts of TMs that his master had acquired through both legal and illegal means. Most importantly, this meant he had learned all three of the strong elemental attacks- Ice Beam, Flamethrower, and Thunderbolt.

However, he had been with his master long enough that he lacked the natural battle instincts of a wild Pokemon and he did not have Ruby's special training that allowed her to fight without Scott's orders. So while he struggled to pick which attack he should use, the flock of Pidgeot closed in on him and used their wings to hit him back to the ground.

Wishing for some assistance, he shot a quick look back at his master, but the leader of all the evil humans was bust being chased around by an angry Charizard. So he chose to use his preferred strategy of simply biting his opponents- one which that human Ranger guy knew all too well- and dashed towards the line of Pokemon that were opposing him. The three-legged Absol was closest to him since she had attempted to use Quick Attack, so she was his first target.

"Beacon, get out of there!" Kaya yelled, almost screaming in her panic. If the Absol-thing grabbed Beacon. . . Kaya didn't want to think about it.

Beacon turned to run, but her missing leg left her off-balance. She tripped and fell, and, before she could get up, the Absol-thing's jaws had clamped around the back of her neck.

For a second, Kaya's mind froze. Beacon wasn't just getting knocked out from a battle this time. What if Beacon died? And it was all Kaya's fault.

It took a few seconds for Kaya to get her brain back in gear, though it seemed like much longer to her. She fumbled with Beacon's Pokeball, her fingers shaking too badly to free it easily. Once the Pokeball was finally free, Kaya held the Pokeball out toward Beacon, and Beacon disappeared with a flash of red light. Thankfully, Beacon could return to the safety of her Pokeball even when in another Pokémon's death grip.

Now that Kaya wasn't watching one of her beloved Pokémon get greviously wounded, she could focus. "Manera, use Thunder Wave!" She ordered. "We need that thing paralyzed. The rest of you, spread out. Use the same attacks again. Do not let that thing get you."

Kaya watched as her Pokémon obeyed their orders, spreading out so they would be harder to attack. That, at least, seemed to be working; the Absol-thing hadn't been able to grab any of them yet. However, her Pokemon didn't seem to be able to hurt the Absol-thing much.

Kaya had to admit it: she had never hoped to last this long. But she knew she couldn't expect her luck to last forever. Just one mistake and her Pokémon would be done for, yet they couldn't hurt the Absol-thing. The only way Kaya could see to defeat the Absol-thing was if Charizard decided to start attacking it or other help came, and Kaya didn't think either one of those was likely to happen. The only other way out Kaya could see was to escape before the battle was over.

"Attila!" Kaya called, since he was the closest to Kaya at the moment. "I need you to talk to those Pidgeot for me. See if if they'd be willing to give us a ride out of here."

"Psy," Attila said, and waddled off toward the flock of Pidgeot.

"And be polite about it!" Kaya called. She didn't want their chance of escape ruined by Attila's usually malicious behavior.

Having lost his chance at getting the closest target, the winged Absol turned to pick out his second victim instead. He hesitated long enough for a opposing Blitzle to be able to paralyze him, which in turn slowed him down enough that he was no longer able to catch any of Kaya's Pokemon.

Frustrated, he turned his attention to Ruby, since he was already somewhat familiar with her. The little Vulpix had thus far stayed back, trying to build up more fire in her internal flame sac so that she would be able to do decent damage.

He knew Ruby was fast, though, too fast for him to catch while paralyzed. So he let out a roar and switched strategies. It was time for his ranged attacks.

Absol wasn't the smartest, but he still knew that Flamethrower and Ice Beam would be ineffective against a Vulpix, so he tried to use Thunderbolt instead. It was a difficult move for him to use, however, and his first attempt failed due to the paralysis.

While Kaya's Pokemon continued to pepper the dark wolf with weak ranged attacks and Ruby readied herself to dodge, the Pidgeot flock swooped in. Surrounded by several birds that were each larger than he was, he started to panic and this time managed to let loose a Thunderbolt that affected a small area around him, stunning the birds.

Seeing an opportunity, Ruby darted in with Quick Attack and smashed into one of the Absol's legs, knocking it over and giving the birds some time to recover and renew their attack.

As the Pidgeot flock prevented the Absol from getting back on its feet, Scott had an idea.

"Hey, could you have...... that Psyduck tell the birds...... to pick us up and get us out of here?"

Attila grumbled as he tried to get the attention of one of the Pidgeot. Be polite, Kaya had said. Being polite was no fun. Not that Attila particularly wanted to stay. If that freak of an Absol got back up, he would lose it. Attila would get them a ride, but he wasn't going to say please and definitely not going to say thank you.

"Hey!" Attila called, yelling up at a Pidgeot. It noticed him ('about time,', Attila thought) and flew down to the ground.

"What do you want?" the Pidgeot said.

Attila went straight to business. "We want to leave. You can fly. How about you give us a ride out of here?"

"You are not poachers?"

Attila acted offended. "Of course not!" 'But that would be fun,' he added mentally.

The Pidgeot considered for a moment. "Very well," it said. "Who are we carrying?"

Before Attila could say anything, Manera cut in. "Me, him, the human girl in the orange shirt, the chained-up human, the Venipede, the Drilbur, the Riolu, and any Pokémon wearing orange. Thank you!"

Attila shot a glare at Manera. He could have managed that on his own! He may not have known that they were supposed to save anyone but themselves, but he still could have managed! He would get her back for that later.

The Pidgeot grabbed Attila in one set of talons and Pede-erpat in the other. Then it called to the others and the Pidgeot left the Absol and began to carry everone off.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kaya flinched as she felt something close around each shoulder and begin lifting her off the ground. Then she looked up and saw the Pidgeot carrying her. They would be okay.

Except Beacon wasn't okay. Now that the poachers were being left behind, Kaya's thoughts wandered back to the Absol. Beacon had been really hurt, Kaya knew. The Pokémon Center would try to help, but what if it was already too late? What if Beacon died?

It was all Kaya's fault. She'd acted rashly and hadn't thought things through. If only she'd looked ahead and realized that she had sent Beacon into danger alone. But Kaya hadn't looked ahead, and now it was Beacon - not Kaya - suffering the consequences.

"Please be okay," Kaya said, tears streaming down her face. "Please, please be okay."

Kaya kept pleading until the pokemon center came into view below them and the Pidgeot began to circle towards the ground. As soon as Kaya's feet hit the ground she was running as fast as she could to the Pokémon center.

˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜

Luke Undar was watching the jungle, his Pawniard, Strall, beside him. His traveling partner, Kaya Roverra, still had returned from the jungle, and Luke was beginning to be worried.

"I won't be gone long," Kaya had said. "I'm just taking the team out to do a little training." This was beginning to fit Luke's definition of a long time. Flu or no flu, Luke was going to go find her himself if she didn't turn up soon.

Luke's eyes widened as a flock of Pidgeot landed in the clearing in front of the Pokémon Center. The Pidgeot themselves weren't unusual; they were just Pokémon. However, several were carrying humans or Pokémon, and one had Kaya.

As soon as her Pidgeot dropped her, Kaya was barreling into the Pokémon Center. She was quite the sight to behold: sweaty, grimy, and wild-eyed. What people were in her way backed up quickly. Luke didn't blame them; Kaya looked like a madman.

Luek got up and began walking towards Kaya. Something was obviously wrong. Most of the other people were flocking outside to see the other human.

Kaya took out a Pokeball from her belt and practically slammed it on the front desk. Now that he was closer, Luke could tell that she was crying.

When Kaya started talking between sobs, Luke could barely understand her. "There-there were these poachers and one of them had this Absol-thing and Beacon tripped and there's this Ranger outside who's hurt and, and, and please, you have to help."

Nurse Joy's response time was incredible. She handed the Pokeball to the Chancey and told it to get the Pokémon inside ready for whatever treatment it needed, then grabbed a gurney and rushed outside. She was out the door before Luke could figure out what Kaya had said.

Luke put a hand on Kaya's shoulder, making her jump. "You okay?" he asked. Kaya shook her head. "Maybe you should sit down."

Kaya slumped into a chair and buried her head in her hands. Luke didn't see her respond throughout the commotion about the injured Pokémon Ranger, or when Manera, Miner, Pede-erpat, and Attila filed into the Pokémon Center. It wasn't until Nurse Joy came out from performing emergency surgery on Beacon the Kaya.

It wasn't until a couple of hours later that Luke saw Kaya move more than just shifting in her seat. Kaya looked up as Nurse Joy walked from the back of the Pokémon center toward her.

Nurse Joy was speaking softly, but Luke was close enough to hear. "I just finished emergency surgery on your Absol," Nurse Joy said, "and she should eventually make a full recovery. You were very lucky not to lose your Pokémon. If you'll come with me, please, I need you to tell me what happened."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I hope you understand the seriousness of what you've done."

Kaya was in a large, expensive-looking office, sitting in a large, expensive-looking chair. In front of her, pacing the room, was a man in a business suit. Kaya studied her sneakers as he lectured her.

It had been a week since the run-in with the poachers. The events were still fresh in Kaya's mind, partially because Beacon was still recovering from her wound and partially because several people, mostly investigators and officials, had had her recount her encounter with the poachers.

"So," the man in the suit said, "let me make sure I'm getting everything. You ordered your Blitzle to attack a human, and would have had it attack even more. On top of that, you put yourself and your Pokémon in an exceedingly dangerous situation facing armed criminals."

"That pretty much sums it up," Kaya said in a small voice.

"Do you realize that, if you hadn't attacked the poacher out of self-defense and only self-defense, you would have not only lost your trainer's license and your Pokémon, but you would have found yourself with jail time as well?" Kaya nodded, still looking at her shoes.

"However," the man continued, "considering the circumstances, it has been decided that you may keep your Trainers' license and your Pokémon."

Kaya looked up, hardly believing what she was hearing. They were really going to let her keep her Pokémon? The way everyone had been talking, Kaya was sure she was going to lose her team.

"However," the man said, "that does not change the fact that what you did was very dangerous and very irresponsible. Consider yourself on probation. If you show that you are incapable of keeping yourself and your Pokémon safe, you will lose your Pokémon."

As the Pidgeot flock began to take action, Scott realized that Scarlet had, in her excitement, forgotten to break the chain securing him to the cage his Pokemon had used to be in. Not only that, but she was still gone trying to get his fake gun back. She and her brother both had tunnel vision, so he had no idea when she would be returning. The chain was likely too strong for anyone to break or melt, so the only ways to get it off would be to either find the key or to use Scarlet's telekinetic powers to pick the lock.

Scarlet wasn't really trained to do that, but it would certainly be easier than fighting everyone looking for a key.

As the girl who was helping recalled her Pokemon and was picked up by a Pidgeot, Ruby fell back to protect her trainer. Scott was focused on the lead poacher though, because that was where his firecracker gun was- and where Scarlet would next show up.

But the lead poacher was still getting chased around by an enraged Charizard, and Scott saw the gun slip out of his belt.......

...... And promptly get stepped on (and likely crushed) by the fire dragon. It may have been made of metal, but since it used compressed air to fire the paintballs instead of gunpowder it wasn't made to the same quality as an actual handgun. There was little chance that it still worked anymore.

"Tch. That's...... several hundred dollars down the drain."

It took a minute, but Scarlet teleported back to him soon afterwards. She had given up on retrieving the weapon.

"The chain...... pick the lock on the chain."

The chain was made of some kind of aluminum alloy with a clasp at both ends, one of which was around Scott's right wrist. As his Espeon began to focus on the clasp's lock, Scott noticed that most of the Pidgoet had left by now and the mutant Absol was back on its feet.

It was that thing and Ruby now. His Vulpix decided to start by lightning the grass between them on fire with multiple Emer attacks so that the Absol couldn't easily approach. As the wolf-thing-with-wings stood confused, the smoke caused by the fires created a wall so that Scott and Ruby could no longer see their opponent.

After several moments passed with the Absol not reappearing, Scarlet finally got the clasp open. Scott quickly grabbed his bag and recalled his Espeon, and Ruby began to turn back to him.

And then they were both grabbed by the wild Pidgeots.

"Hey, wait...... don't...... AHHHHHHHH!"

A sudden burst of pain from Scott's burns on his back knocked him out cold.
_____________________________________________________________________

A week passed, and finally the restriction on flying after the terrorist incident was lifted so the Rangers could use their helicopters again.

And then another week passed.
_____________________________________________________________________

Scott sat up in the hospital bed.

He was still in the Fidona general hospital, two weeks after the incident in the jungle.

He remembered nothing of the flight back to the city, or of landing, or of the three days after that. Apparently he'd been either unconscious or barely awake the entire time.

The medical records were staggering- he'd needed stitches in a few spots and a lot of pain medicine, but the burn on his back had required skin grafting to heal even with the medical abilities of Pokemon like Chansey and Blissey. It would likely leave a life-long scar, just like the one on his shoulder from long before now. Not only that, but he had to be treated for a concussion that he got when he was first attacked.

Plus, Ruby had needed stitches for a wound on the back of her neck and shoulder, and Ebony had needed surgery to repair a torn muscle in his leg.

Ruby had already been released back into Amber's care and was ready to go, but he and Ebony weren't allowed to leave the hospital yet. Luckily, Scarlet and Moss got through relatively unscathed.

Amber had already vented all her anger in the previous week, and was now simply trying to help out with some of the paperwork. The Rangers would pay for most of the medical bills, but he had to file a lengthy report on what had happened. That report was proving to be a major pain.

But in the end, there was good news.

Two days after the incident, a team of four Rangers and two Fidona policemen had stormed the poacher base, only to find it abandoned. All of the Pokemon that had been captured had been left in the cages, as if the poachers were in a hurry to leave, so everyone had been freed.

Not only that, but Ruby had dug into his bag while he'd been out cold and had used her Fire Stone. She was no longer a little Vulpix but a much larger Ninetales.

All that was left to do for Scott was to stare out the window of his hospital room and wish his recovery would happen faster so he could go back to patrolling.

And to wish that all the paperwork would go away.
