There were more pirates following after them.

He knew that it was going to be absolutely cheesy (borderline dangerous) strategy if he sent out Gareth to Teleport them out of the cove, but due to the length of the tunnels and all that, it was going to be… a problem.

Either way, he was following his companion, shuffling around his pockets and pulling out a Pokéball at random before sending its occupant out. A one in five chance would reveal—

Well, what do you know?

A Lucario unfurled himself from the red beam of light, an alarmed look on his face.

“Alpha! I know! Ask questions later, help us get out of here! Do what you have to!”

Right then and there the Lucario began to conjure up a ball of auric energy, hoping to score a backwards hit as the sound of yelling pirates grew louder. He had no idea how many were on their tail, all he knew was that they had to get the hell out of here, and fast!






continued from Raging Fire! Lucario is charging up an Aura Sphere attack.

[attr="class","mimi"]mimi knew her sneakers were a good choice when she left her hotel room that morning, but this single moment makes her feel grateful she thought so then. she hears, rather than sees, the lucario being released from his pokeball with a click. at least nobody's hurt yet, she reasons, unlike her earlier run-in with these pirates.

she's almost about to suggest they hop on the dragonite's back and consequences be damned. the only thing that keeps her from doing so is that her pokemon may get hurt in the process. keep going, keep going, she chants in her head, certain that stopping at all would mean their ruin.

at last, there's a light at the end of the tunnel that she's desperate to reach. she's not sure if it's the sun or lars's shiny metagross, and in either case she's relieved. "we're close!" she makes sure to relay the good news to lars.

The shouting was getting too close, and therefore the Lucario had to act. Thankfully, Aura Sphere was a homing attack that would not miss no matter where it was thrown, so Alpha did a backhanded gesture, sending the sphere of energy soaring behind him.

A sudden yelp meant that it had hit its target, and he was able to put some additional distance between the pirates chasing them, and keep up with his companion.

Have the tunnels ever felt this damned-ass fucking long?! It felt like he was running for an eternity!

Eventually, there was a light at the end of the tunnel… they were close!

“Come on!” he said, before seeing his Lucario rush past them with a burst of Extreme Speed—he then happened to run past a puddle.

He didn’t know that it had frozen over after he’d stepped on it, so when he heard more brigands screaming about how slippery it had suddenly gotten, his mind blanked out for a few seconds.

Wait, what? he thought as he chanced a glance over his shoulder—

Ah, shit! The puddle had somehow… turned into a frozen puddle.

This… is going to be a problem! But we have to hurry! he thought frantically. Biting his lip as he put on another burst of adrenaline-induced speed, he grabbed her hand and picked up the pace even more—not realizing that his own hold on her hands was colder than most normal touch would be.

Hella yikes.






Lucario used Aura Sphere to take down a pirate at random, before dashing forward in a burst of Extreme Speed!

[attr="class","mimi"]the coldness of his hands are a stark contrast to the heat produced by mimi's running. it almost burns in its own way, but she makes no comment other than a short gasp. in her mind, there's no time to worry about such things when they're being chased by what sounds like a growing number of pirates.

she doesn't look back, only ahead. ahead and up into the sky. even the two unconscious pirates are ignored. she's more than certain they both agree on their next action: to fly.

they could leave the way they arrived, but apart from the rock formation that hid them earlier there's nothing but open air in that direction. meanwhile, the option of taking a u-turn and using the other side of the grotto as cloak for their escape could have the added bonus of giving them a place to gather their breaths and think of a proper plan. "let's go thay way," she suggests. the dragonite's already turning in said direction.

it's a while before she hops off her dragonite's back. "that must have been the longest half hour of my life. sorry about that. you okay?" her hand instinctively reaches inside her pocket for the trinket that started it all. mimi brings it to her face before blowing the dust off of it.

The moment they’d found their way out of the cove, he saw that his Metagross had piled the passed-out pirates into some travesty off to one side.

“No time to ask, Ro, go! he yelped as he practically took a flying leap onto the Metagross and knocked exactly once—taking this as the sign to follow the Dragonite as they flew away from the cove and off to relative safety. Before they left, he recalled the Lucario, who was grateful to be sucked up into the beam of red light before they fled.

The Metagross followed the Dragonite for a short while, until they’ve found a safe place to set down and catch their breath. Lars’s head was still going a mile a minute—and it was just insane, to be perfectly fair.

Once they had arrived at their new ‘location’, he slid off the Metagross’s back to land on the sand, trying to steady himself before finally standing up.

“They multiply like the plague, it’s terrible,” he grumbled before he ran a hand through his hair. “At least we got out of their sight, right? That’s the good thing about all this.”

A few moments later, he caught sight of the heirloom that she was examining.

“Wait—wait. Hold up,” he said as he walked over to take a look at it.






safe for now

[attr="class","mimi"]"yeah, seriously. felt like main headquarters just by the amount of footsteps following after us." mimi didn't see more than three of them to the eye, but she certainly had heard a lot, lot more than the three. just the thought makes her shiver a little.

the feel of the sphere is comforting against her fingers. it rolls in her fingers until they hit a second one. she can't speak for the man, but she's glad at least she doesn't have to go back in, hopefully never again, since she did manage to recover the necklace - or what was left of the necklace, at least. "it's pretty, isn't it? i'll have to replace the string that held it, but." she doesn't quite finish her sentece, and instead looks quizzically at lars. why's he telling her to wait?

Truly, they were grateful to be rid of the place—who knew that such a deserted cove could hide so many people within its maw? He took a few deep breaths in order to calm himself.

There was something about the pendant that caught his eye—while it wasn’t similar to what his Metagross possessed, the delineating curve on the surface was more than enough to catch his attention.

“How long has this been with your family?” he inquired. “Do you—do you know what that is? The gemstone in the middle? he added a few moments later.

While he hadn’t initially recognized what it was, the longer he could see it, the more familiar it was starting to look. Looking over to where Ro was now parked on the sand, legs folded, he waited for her to answer so he could explain what he’d seen.






he noticed what it was

[attr="class","mimi"]"for as long as anyone back home can remember," as is the case with any ancestral heirloom. she got hers from her dad, who in turn received it from his own dad, and he from his aunt, and so on. she doesn't think anything of it at first, but he's making it sound like the gem is something more than a simple trinket, and mimi can only look back in confusion.

her eyes fall back to it, small and shiny. she's trying to see what he means, but she only sees the same pattern she's seen many times before. "what do you mean?"

He wondered if the mystical phenomenon of mega evolution was known outside of this region. The way she’d reacted to it may have confirmed his suspicion…

“This is a mega stone,” he replied shortly, before pointing at one of Ro’s ‘claws’ where his own Metagrossite sparkled. “Do you have the accessory that goes with it?” he added, showing her the ring he wore on his right pointer finger.

“They actually work together as a set. As for which Pokémon yours belongs to…”

He had to take a closer look to discern which one it was.

“Huh… definitely not the one Ro has. Do you—by any chance, do you have a Garchomp?” he asked a few moments later.

[attr="class","mimi"]mimi is not unfamiliar with the concept of mega evolution. she's even used the phenomenon a couple times in previous competitive matches, not too long ago. she also knows what the key stone lars is talking about looks like; had worn one before for those same matches.

mega stones were a different story. she'd always been assigned the pokémon by her team, and they had always been assigned already equipped with the little gemstones. it makes sense that she wouldn't immediately recognize one, though in hindsight she feels like she should have. how silly of her.

"now that you mention it..." mimi lets her garchomp out at once. the action is second nature to her, attention is expendable and her gaze is instead fixed on some spot on the ground. she recalls flashes of the garchomp that her great-grandfather once showed her before his passing. it all makes sense now. "i don't have a key stone on me, but i get the gist. once i find one, i can mega evolve her." and at this she does turn in the pokemon's direction, who looks at her with curiosity.

"to think i've had a mega stone all this time," she laughs at her own denseness. "no wonder those pirates were after it. speaking of, what should we do about this one?" her hand produces a second mega stone. in the hurry, she had mixed it in with the garchompite without noticing.
