he drops into the water after failing the trick, but the plunge doesn't come. instead, he finds himself standing on two feet in the middle of some forested area.

on his hand was a bug catcher's net. the other one held a pokeball. voices continue to ring throughout the area, but it's more adrenaline filled that one of joy and celebration. he can feel the competition within the people on various corners of the forest, though it doesn't seep into him.

he still retains the smile he forced. he looks around, finds nothing he could remember by, nor anyone he recognizes, before he realizes it was the bug catching competition, yet another children's event he bailed on because he didn't feel like it.

he doesn't feel it now either.

a shelmet approaches his feet, apparently recognizing his presence. priam crouches down to its level, realizing that they weren't invisible once again, dropping the net he held on one hand, he gently touches the bug-type with the empty pokeball on the other.

[attr="class","spiral"] The return to the Bug Catching contest is a mild distraction in the grand schemes of things but it provides a chance at opportunity. Rumor has it that a wild Mega Evolved Pokemon was discovered during this period. Always the hungry capturer, Fernando also takes the chance to look for the Mega Pinsir.

Unable to find it, he settles for Nincada he finds half buried into the ground. The ability to split off into two Pokemon is impeccable. Truly a two for one special.

Something had gone wrong. Sven had witnessed the events of the surfing competition, but could scarcely begin to participate in them himself before he blinked away again. When he 'reawoke' this time, it was beside his Absol. They looked at each other with confused expressions before turning their gaze to the scene around them.[break][break]

Petalburg Woods.
[break][break]

They knew this location well. The two knew better to assume they had returned to their place in time and space, however. They watched as a man () passed by them with a massive Sewaddle in his net, noting that he didn't seem to be aware of their presence at all. Finding comfort in the scenery and the excitement of what appears to be a bug-catching competition, however, Sven smiles.[break][break]

The moment he feels himself physical once more, the lad prompts Lupa to follow him as he pulls out a pokéball and jogs into the forest. At the sight of a Wimpod timidly crawling out of a pond and onto the muddy bank, Sven stops and casts his ball.[break][break]

CAUGHT THE BIGGEST BUG:[break][break]
[break][break][break]

SEVERAL TRAINERS find themselves with newly captured Bug Pokemon. 's encounter with a gargantuan Volcarona burns with the success of capture. Such a behemoth has never been seen before— and as the ranger disappears, a ripple in time occurs.[break][break]

The original winner of the contest, Siobhan, does not win. Instead, @n0ble does...[break][break][break]

Unbeknownst to these poor creatures, they are about to be displaced in time. As the warp occurs once more, the lush greens of Petalburg Woods deteriorate into a dark, bare forest. The earth they walk on shifts and churns like intestines. In fact, upon casting light upon the forest floor, one would be able to discover a wriggling mass of tentacle-like worms with bulging eyes.[break][break][break]

[break][break][break]

Above, the moon is full. A gothic-styled mansion stands tall in the distance, masked in wreaths of fog. Suddenly, a horde of zombies start to rush through the woods. Trainers and Pokemon alike are torn apart by the gnashing of teeth— and for those who have survived The Ultra Beast War, such sounds echo terrible memories.[break][break][break]

Everyone assumes a physical presence here. Those who wish to be noticed by others can be, including those present within this macabre land. This is a nightmare after all.[break][break][break]

Gavin is physical, here, cold air raising gooseflesh on his arms as his breath is expelled in a cloud of misty white. The nightmare reveals itself in the form of grotesque worms that writhe in the dirt, their eyes staring without blinking. For a moment, he mistakes it for his own nightmare; the horribly wet sounds of teeth rending flesh are far too reminiscent of the war to be anything else, right?[break][break]

It churns in his gut, and he stumbles back as zombies rush from the wood. He does not look close enough to see their faces, because he fears he might see his loved ones reflected in their grinning gore.[break][break]

It's not real, it's not real, it's not—[break][break]

Logic wars with panic, wars with the fact that he's just shifted through half a dozen realities not his own, and Gavin runs.[break][break]

It's too real, with the frigid air stealing his breath until he can't run any longer, stumbling to a stop with a hacking cough. He should've quit smoking. Was this a dream, a nightmare, or was this some kind of hell?[break][break]

He can't outrun the horde, so he turns to fight with a desperate, soundless snarl on his lips. He thinks of his Naganadel and suddenly it's there, expelling a wave of heat and cleansing fire toward the undead threat. Gavin's nails dig into the bark of the tree he uses for support as his lungs struggle to inflate. His defiance builds with the heat in the air; he'd survived an alien fucking invasion, he was going to survive this. "Naganadel, kill them all."

Thomas would emerge in an arena that was all too familiar to the man. To be specific, they seemed to be in the same nightmare they ended up in last year. Was Hoopa messing with the dreamscape again? Was Darkrai doing this, and attempting to send them a message? Or was there something more going on.

In any case, Thomas would notice that he still had his arm, unlike when the nightmare played out. He would notice those emerging from the elevator, including himself, who were missing an arm. And as the battle raged on, the familiar sight of the colored rings caused the man's eyes to widen.

Remembering what happened when the Dragon Ring failed to be closed, resulting in his 'death' in the nightmare, Thomas instinctively reached for a Pokeball. Thankfully, he still had Kalameet on him, unlike the Thomas in the nightmare, who lost Kalameet to the elevator trap. Kalameet, who didn't survive long enough to know where they were, looked on in confusion. Thomas quickly mounted the dragon, before taking to the air. "Kalameet, Dragon Pulse on the purple ring!", the Kalosian ordered.

As the Hydreigon flew around the field, he would begin to target the purple ring with a Dragon Pulse barrage, attempting to join in what efforts there were to destroy it. All the while, the Kalameet was remaining on the move, attempting to avoid the other rings flying towards them. If Thomas was right, then shattering the purple ring would save them so much headache.

In an blink of an eye, the man found that the once lush green woods became dark as night. Something beneath him shifted, forcing the scarred man to shift his weight to keep balance. His warm gaze fell to the earth, spotting something wiggling like tentacles that had creepy looking eyes. He shivered, gaze lifted as he tried to swallow the lump that formed in his throat. Expecting to see the dark forest, his brow rose as the moon light up a gothic building hidden in thick fog. Screams of terror pulled his attention away from the mysterious place, spotting what looked like thousands of zombies rushing from no where. His heart skipped a beat, eyes widen with horror as he witnessed a trainer and their company get rip to shreds by several zombies. Suddenly, his stomach turned as he could smell blood in the air. Memories of the war flashed before his eyes.

“Arcanine!”

Maverick about jumped out of his skin when he heard the frantic cries of his pokemon. His gaze shifted to see Evo standing next to him. The canine motioned with his head as he got down a little lower, letting his trainer jump on his back. The gym leader wasted no time as a group of zombies spotted him. He leaped onto his back, hands grapped clumps of his soft warm mane as he shouted “Let’s go Evo! Use extreme speed!”. The arcanine rose to his feet and darted forward. The trainer ducked low behind the canine’s head as the wind from extreme speed became to great for him to breath. His gaze flickered back for only a moment, spotting pokemon and humans getting ripped apart as they gained distance between them. Both guilt that he didn’t help them and relief washed over him, hoping his nightmare ends soon.

But just as they escaped the zombies and screams behind them, Evo came to an abrupt halt. His trainer gaze lifted to see a legendary pokemon before them. And some how, he ended up on floating platforms. Maverick leaped off the arcanine, hand reached into his pocket to pulled out his absol. The creature appeared in that matter of seconds, his own gaze on the beast before them. “We need to help them,” the man explained to the two creatures, “Evo, stay close.” Maverick nodded to the absol as he touched his mega stone. Taibor nodded and readied himself. Within minutes, the mega evolution was complete and his absol took on a new form. “Taibor use megahorn and Evo, use flame burst on those rings!”

The mega absol horn took on a light green glow, growing twice its size. And with a whip of his head, a wave of energy was hurled towards the hoopa. Meanwhile, the arcanine took in a deep breath. And when ready, he released a stream of flames from his mouth into the air. The flames form into a ball of fire in the middle of the area close to the rings before it bursted, sending multiple streaks of fire at any rings that were near by.

ooc: arcanine used extreme speed to escape zombies. mega absol uses megahorn on unbound hoopa. arcanine uses flame burst at the rings.

HOENN HISTORIA

 

She was given no choice. No one chose to dream a nightmare. To dream of a world where masses slithered unseen just beneath the forest detritus, a place where the sound of teeth grated like saw-blades. Unlike before, this felt real. Disgustingly, viscerally real.

Too real.

Logic rushed back to fill the gap in her expectations and she straightened up, her eyes hardening. The stumbling, manufactured constructs. The fear that pulled at her bones. The blind and dragging impulse to escape, to save herself, to drag and crawl and rip herself through strings of gore to reach the hope of far-off sanctuary. It was wrong. It was contrived. Something’s using me. Something’s manipulating me.

Could it be the unbound genie floating in a circle of desiccated hands at the furthest end of the plateau? She thought it might be.

...The spindly little insect she’d captured in the time-slowed forest. Something had wanted her to have it. Chryssa triggered its Pokeball and caught it before it could land, trapping it between her fingers. “Gaven, my white hawk,” she said, cupping it in her palms. Its glassy green eyes stared into hers. “Speak. Are you friend or foe? Do you work for me, or for the enemy?”

The Nincada cracked.

It peeled apart in her hands like a blooming flower, skin opening, re-forming, shedding layers of light until two separate Pokemon hovered before her. “My my, what do we have here,” Chryssa said, brows raising. What a way to avoid the question. Or, perhaps, it was the bug-type’s way to answer it.

A feverish smile transformed her face, as sharp as a razor, and the sixteen-year-old extended a hand towards the fight. “I’ll take a fifty-fifty chance. Don’t die-- and if you do, I hope it’s not the wrong one.”

The pair of winged insects sped like hornets through the maze of rings. The Hoopa’s movements slowed as the world expanded, figments of possibilities hanging in the air like shadows as the insect’s MIND READER honed in on their goal. The Ninjask wove between hoops, spinning in the air as he sheared away from death again and again. The Shedinja was slower, more meticulous-- it fluttered like a leaf in a gale, its hollow body changing course to sink through the earth itself to avoid the deadly rifts in space.

“Try to scare me? Chryssa screamed, laughed. Render her powerless on the back of a playful Mantine and she was terrified.  But this? This dream was hers. Her energy spiked as she saw the two insects strike their foe as one, the screams of the nightmare behind her building to a crescendo. She spread her hands. You’re dreaming! You’ll have to kill me first!”

Chu-e could not remember where he was before. It was sudden, a start, his soft bed being turned into a squishy and unpleasant forest floor. It reminded him of both times the Abomasnow had kidnapped him, waking up disoriented and confused and unsure of where he was at. But the sounds of violence and the stench of rot and blood cause him to rise as quickly as his aching body is able, hands already on his pokeballs at his hip. The cries of pain and sight of flesh and bone and whatever horror this is puts him into a small panic. This has to be a nightmare, and any moment Prince will do his job and use a Dream Eater on him and clear it up. Yet it never comes, and the hoard of fucking undead is getting closer, and it all feels so real, so damned real...

Muse is tossed out, the Machamp already in a position to fight. Instead, Chu-e crawls into her arms and she gladly hefts him up. He can not go very far or fast on his own any more, so he will have to rely on his pokemon. "Go, go!" He points away from the gnawing teeth and deeper into whatever hell this in, unsure if it will even provide safety. Panic is lacing through him and making cold spikes shoot up and down his spine.

After a moment, Chu-e also calls out Aloe, the Slowking swiftly picked up and balanced on the second set of Muse's powerful arms. "Aloe, keep fucking things away!" And the Slowking seems as confused and startled as his trainer, but a moment later powerful Water Pulse, Power Gem, and Psychic are being used to push back or destroy anything that get's too close to the trio.

A mansion appears in the distance and there is distinct sounds of battle. He ignored the battle, directs Muse to the mansion, and he desperately searches his pocket to see if his lock picking set is there. Thankfully, it seems to be in it's usual spot, and when they reach the front he half leaps from his Pokemon's arms. The door is locked, predictable, but he kneels down and starts to work on picking the lock. His mind is racing but hands steady, testing and pushing the tumblers inside until a definitive 'click' is heard. He doesn't hesitate to shove open the door and push inside, his pokemon at his back, and the door shoved closed again just in time. A quick glance around show it as safe for now and he slides down the now closed, and locked again, door, trying to process whatever the hell has just happened.

Panic is still surging inside of him and he just wants to wake up wake up wake UP because there is no way this is real. This can't be real.




tl;dr

scenario one used
machamp and slowking used to escape hoard and get into the mansion
he has no idea what's happening since he wasn't here for the original event
didn't notice anyone else in his panic, but others are free to notice him

Kaida is dumped among bloodshed and terror for her newest nightmare and, in all honesty, she isn't surprised by that fact. What is surprising though, is that it feels like she's watching a fever dream of a battle. Not like the war. Not like anything she's ever seen. The unknown Pokemon (Hoopa) cackles as its rings slice someone in twain, spilling blood as more of the terrible battle rages on. [break][break]

She doesn't know what else to do, but she runs, she runs for she feels the wind on her face. She's physical. If this monster kills her, she dies. So she runs towards the monster, Pokeball popping open to reveal Ormr as she roars, "Rattlesnake!" A move unheard of too, that she hopes strikes terror into this monster's heart, better for her to escape. [break][break]

Ormr clings to her neck, waving his rattle frantically until a droning rattle near shakes the air. It rumbles almost visibly, deep yet high, the sound somehow adding more fear to a nightmare already permeated by it.

now he found himself fighting some kind of giant monster genie throwing around portals and rings. both he and his urshifu who he managed to call out both danced around dodging whatever was thrown at them but kazimir knew that it was time to kick some serious butt today. "okay let's hit 'im with everything we got, go for a wicked blow domon!" the urshifu grunted in agreement as it charged forward, sidestepping any and all rings that came at it as it drew back its fist and unleashed a wicked blow right at the monster's face, hoping to crack some serious skull with it.

THEME

The crushed-leaf scent of the forest faded away. Deep afternoon toned boughs were enveloped by their own shadows, and the straight path back to Petalburg seemed now crooked, twisting away into the rotting undergrowth like the body of a cemetary serpent.

The scent of chestnuts and late bloom flowers faded, leaving only the musk of rot. 
    Zac shoved the pokeball with Heracross back into his bag. As he did the ground around him cracked, split by clawing hands that were bleeding and gravel-bitten, skinless from their climb up through the soil.

Well, at least it's a familiar nightmare. I've done zombies before. Zac thought as he staggered back, the hands reaching for his coat and feet.

He stamped on one and grabbing a pokeball from his bag. Time to get moving. "Go Kev!" 
Onix burst from the ball, his boulderous form grinding the emerging zombies to gravedust. "You too Zappa. Light the way!"
The Heliolisk emerged, scampering up Onix's massive form to join Zac on his back. 

The lizard bled weak, jaundiced light, a far cry from the usual saffron blast. Thankfully, it was enough to show that the geography had changed. 
    They were on a hill now. A crunching, dipping path that limped up towards a sagging mansion at the peak. This was looking less and less like Petalburg.

Zac saw movement. Fast, large shadows in the woods. Trainers, or monsters? It didn't matter. He pushed Onix on, and the stone snake ground its way towards safety.

The last place he was in felt like a pleasant dream. But this place? This felt like a nightmare; the screams of joy changed to that of terror, the warmth of the field replaced by the dead cold of the forest, the buzzing of bugs was replaced by the groaning of monsters.

And the worst part? This felt real.

One such monster was perilously close to him - and in panic, he tried to back away. But he quickly hit a tree, and was too panicked to go around.

Just as the monster got close, it was pushed back; though Hideo couldn’t see it, a bright glint of light had pushed it away, and that light came straight from his head. His hair, to be exact, emitted from the tiny Cutiefly that had nested there.

Louder screams restored some amount of clarity to the boy, enough for him to let out a Pokemon that could help him better; Rocky, his ever-faithful Lycanroc. “I got no idea what’s happening, Rocky,” he said, “But we gotta get somewhere safe before more monsters get here. You see anywhere we could go?

He received an immediate “Ly!” from his Pokemon, who brushed his tail along his hand; he took the hint, grabbing on and being led over to a mansion he couldn’t notice. He went at a steady pace, and any zombies that tried to approach either received several rocks to the face, or another Dazzling Gleam - the latter of which would shine bright in the night, no doubt serving as a beacon for others looking for safety.

He’d arrive just as someone managed to open the lock, and followed them inside.



Prompt 1
Hideo is saved from zobmies by Pinky's Dazzling Gleam. He lets Rocky out to guide him to a mansion, his two Pokemon using ranged attacks to push back any zombies that get close.
Pinky's Dazzling Gleam can serve as a beacon for people looking for safety.
They follow the others inside the mansion.

As the bug event area slowly began to vanish away Bryan was scooped up along with his Pokémon who had slowly vanished. What in the world was going on? None of this made sense and Bryan was struggling to even keep up. Are these events of Hoenn's past that he's living for himself now? He didn't hear about this one at all and it seemed to be like a nightmare. What was an actual nightmare though was the fact that Bryan didn't seem to be a ghost for this one just observing. His body actually manifested and those zombies locked onto Bryan's presence. He panicked and quickly reached for his pokeballs noticing he had a different set this time. [break][break]

Well whatever, any Pokémon at the moment would be helpful so Bryan quickly tossed out his Scyther he just caught and his aegislash. He gave out orders to them both at the same time "Aegis, aerial ace, Scyther. use x scissor aim for the head!" he said in a panic as the two Pokémon quickly attacked the zombies closest to them and carved a path out for Bryan to run to the mansion where he saw a dazzling gleam [break][break]

as the ball touches the nincada, valerio finds his surroundings being engulfed in unmistakable darkness. it has been happening all over again. he struggles to get up on his two feet, but once his hands cane into the earth, he slowly realizes it isn't. he immediately jerks up and calls his pokemons.[break][break]

“hoon! darty! zeus! save me.” three balls are called, revealing his three dragons. he rides the dragapult and ascends the dark forest only to be shifted into an astral plane where a battle of curious creatures unfolds.[break][break]

everyone is attacking the purple creature, who has been relentless in sending rings into the other trainers.[break][break]

“you three: let's assist! let's end this once and for all.”[break][break]
