near the last known location of regirock's tomb, several trainers have stumbled across an ominous opening. inside, they will find the ruins of the legendary titan, riddled with traps, treasures, and the mystical unknown. no one knows what awaits them but one thing is for sure — a new arc begins. despite the thin veil of peace, the public still faces unease.
after the ultra beast war, hoenn begins to heal. the megalopolan invasion may have failed; however, it is clear there is much more at stake. a prophecy revolving around a cyclical meteoroid, the appearance of necrozma and a dangerous and viral alien threaten the safety of the region once more.
with rocket's new boss, the resurgence and reappearance of the crime syndicate's presence is imminent. the league has done its best to repair its reputation, and with the victory of a war under their belt, perhaps it is enough. but the seeds of distrust have already been sown in the ravaged land of this region, causing many to wonder what will grow?
Ethel surveyed New Mauville. She'd heard that the power plant served as a home for many Pokemon, and she was curious to see for herself. It was curious, that such a clearly human-made place would serve as a haven for wild Pokemon. She'd heard that they were often steel or electric types, which made sense, but it was still curious.
Rodent floated beside her, the huge Magnezone clearly at home in the power plant. She felt a little silly naming it Rodent, but it really did show a great curiosity about rodents. She had caught it floating about chasing Skwovet and Pachirisu constantly, and Stratus had quickly taken to the large steel-type. Maybe there'd be a rodent here that he was interested in, other than Stratus, who was sitting on the huge Magnezone comfortably.
It seemed that Rodent would have little trouble finding a rodent to pester. The Magnezone emitted a series of rapid beeps that indicated excitement, swooping over to a metal box that had a Minun climbing it.
While the Minun was originally startled and probably a little confused, it quickly warmed up to the newcomer. Squeaking happily, the Minun clambered aboard, resting on the Magnezone's huge steel body. However, Stratus, who was already there, did not seem to take kindly to this, chattering and knocking the Minun to the floor with an Acrobatics.
The Minun was understandably startled, chittering angrily after it recovered from the fall. Concentrating, the Minun brought down a huge bolt of electricity from above in what was unmistakably a Thunder, striking Stratus and Rodent directly. Rodent flinched, but shrugged off the attack. Stratus was less happy, screaming in pain and surprise.
Ethel didn't want the situation to get any worse than it already was, so she stepped in. "Hey," she said to the Minun, recalling Stratus. Rodent had recovered from the surprise and drifted closer to the wild Minun. "Sorry about Stratus, he gets grumpy sometimes. You want to join us?"
The Minun squeaked happily and leaped atop Rodent's back once more, and Ethel smiled as she pushed the empty Pokeball's button.
