((Hey Rider! Continuing with just you for now since Cool is The Dead(TM) and I remember you really wanting to continue this.))
Blue giggled at Hau's interpretation of Cinnabar's name, declining to correct him. She liked this boy. His head was in exactly the right place as far as she was concerned. “You have, huh? It used to snow back in Kanto sometimes. I actually lived near the ocean. More along a river, but...” Blue mused aloud.
As Blue was talking though, Hau picks up on something! Off in the distance, there's a boat wrecked on the beach. Not only that, but he can see creatures moving about on it. Creatures cloaked in a purplish starvia aura. They were frantically searching it, by the looks of it. One particular pokemon, a honchcrow, was perched upon the bow. It was watching the duo carefully as they approached, seemingly waiting for something. You aren't able to recognize any of the other pokemon without getting closer, though.
Why don't you become one of my pokemon? A cutie like you would be a perfect fit for my team~! Think about it, okay?
Hau smiled and nodded, his eyes still looking around. "Next to a river huh? That's pretty awesome! Did it run out into the Ocean? Was it saltwater or freshwater? Have you only been to Kanto, or have you been to all the regions? I heard there's a Victory Road there, what's it like? In Alola, we have a HUUUUUUGE mountain called Mount Lanakila, and when you reach the top, you had to fight all four of the Island Kahunas, they're like super strong Gym Leaders, and then you were done with the Island Challenge! That's kind of like your Pokemon League stuff. Except now Alola has a Pokemon League AND a Champion! Moon's pretty awesome, so she's probably handling herself..."
Hau's eye landed on the boat in the far distance. A Honchkrow, huh? Dark-Flying, evolves from Murkrow with some shady stone or something. Weird, the odd purple aura around it wasn't anything like a Pokemon move Hau had seen before... Maybe it was like, some kind of Dark-Type charge-up move? Like evil Sky Power or something? Mind you, reader, Hau hasn't seen Starvia before, and the poor kid really only thought of things in the basis of Pokemon.
"Huh, Blue, you see that?" Hau pointed out towards the ship where the Pokemon seemed to be attacking harshly. "I haven't Pokemon glow like that before... And look at how angry they are! We should get a closer look; come on, Rai-Rai, Taur-Hala!"
The Alolan Raichu nodded and floated to follow his Trainer, nd the Tauros grunted slightly and pressed forward, slowly be steadily. Hau didn't seem to be agitated or worried for the boat; the boy could always ask to go faster.

Blue seemed to think about this for a moment. “Salt water. And I've visited just about every region at one time or another... Stayed in some longer than others, though. Victory Road... is a biiig dark cave. You can get lost in there real easy~ Parts of it are flooded and collapsed too! They don't play any games back in Kanto. ...Well, not in Victory Road anyway. Too many things to trip over!” Blue replied. “I always wanted to visit Alola, though. It sounds like it's beach weather all year round over there! Do you think I could pass as a swimmer~?” Blue asked in a playfully leading tone.
Blue was of course passingly familiar with the starvia. Being a city dweller, it took her a few moments to notice the telltale signs. But she was nothing if not shrewd, and once she realized what was going on she bolted to catch up with Hau and warm him, attempting to flag him down. “Hau, wait, those are infected!” Blue blurted out, attempting to get him to stop. However, it was too late. The honchkrow kawed to alert its fellow, and several pokemon leapt from the ship, beginning to approach the duo. “Oh man. Looks like we're in for a battle.” Blue replied in mild distress. She sure hoped Lillie wasn't on that boat...
A wooloo came flying out of the boat, bouncing several times before landing nearby. It was wearing a pair of thick black shades, and somehow managed to hold itself with a certain confidence. It baa'd challengingly at Hau and his pokemon. Meanwhile, the combusken that threw the wooloo was leaping out of the boat and rushing to catch up. After a few moments, the water NEXT to the boat was disturbed, and a gigantic pikachu curiously poked its head out to look at the group. “...Woah.” Blue murmured, having never seen a giant pokemon like that before. If it weren't for the starvia aura, she'd be tempted to call it cute.

Why don't you become one of my pokemon? A cutie like you would be a perfect fit for my team~! Think about it, okay?
Taur-Hala noted that the sudden arrivals (or appearances, since they had been here already, but honestly, Taur-Hala wasn't smart enough or cared enough to make the difference), and stopped clopping, Hau's eyes widen in awe and absolute adoration. Was that... That WAS! That was a Wooloo in shades! Hau had seen pictures from Galar of their adorable little fluff balls, but this guy wasn't just cute, he was COOL too! Man, Hau was tempted to catch the little guy, but he knew the rules in a Horde Battle like this; Poke Balls thrown early like this were just going to be baited and smashed by the other wild Pokemon, that's why it's not smart to catch one early. OK, so looks like Honchkrow and the others were gonna have to go.
And then GIGANTACHU burst out of the freaking water!
Holy TAUROS THAT'S A HUGE PIKACHU! Hau had never seen a Pikachu of that size before! Hau didn't know most Pokemon could get to that size, let alone a Pikachu who was that big and could GO UNDERWATER!!! "Whooooooaaaaaaaaa... That thing is awesome!"
"Alright, Blue, if you could handle the big Pikachu, I think Rai-Rai and I are gonna try and catch that Wooloo! First things first, Rai-Rai, use Thunderbolt on the Honchkrow!" Rai-Rai nodded, and blasted off a powerful streak of lightning from his body, hurtling straight for the Flying Pokemon!

Shortly after that, Hau flung a hand forward in an excited manner, like the trainers he would watch on his TV during the League Tournaments! "Follow up with a Psyshock on that Combusken!" And a wave of psychic energy would surge forward to engulf the fiery chicken Pokemon! However the assault would ravage it's body, leaving it tired and losing the will to fight!
p_1d20+2 (Rai-Rai's PYSHOCK! Deals 15% and targets the enemy's CON stat! Psychic Type for Type Effectiveness)
Preparing to finish the first rounds of attacks, Hau once more grinned,excited over the rush of combat. "And get in close with Honchkrow and break 'em with Iron Tail!" Rai-Rai nodded, also getting excited before surfing on air towards the large bird Pokemon. Spinning slightly and building up speed as he got closer, Rai-Rai would leap into the air, still spinning, and launched it's tail at Honchkrow during the turn, hopefully smacking the bird into the ground!

Blue glanced at Hau briefly before shifting her gaze to that totally radicool wooloo posing like a boss, the island sunlight reflecting off those black shades. It did look kind of cute, now that she gave it a second look over. “Ooo~ Good taste in pokemon! Yeah, I can handle that!” Blue replied rather casually. ...Could she though? Could she really? That was one GIANT pikachu. “Alright Ninetails, let's put that gigantic pikachu on ice!” Blue announced, sending out her pokemon. Hau might notice that this was, in fact, an alolan ninetails and not a ninetails from Blue's home region.
“You expect me to freeze that??” her ninetails asked in pokespeak as it was sent out, startled by the giant pokemon. She promptly summoned an aurora over the battlefield, beautiful magical barriers wrapping around Hau, Blue, Raichu and herself.
((Ninetails' Aurora Veil Activated; Ninetails and her allies, including Hau and Raichu, take half damage for 3 turns))
Ninetails them leapt away to go confront the giant pikachu.
03|4vk4Hp_1d20p_1d20p_1d20 (Mercy Rolls, since Hau stood no chance of hitting any attacks if I used thresholds)
Honchkrow narrowly managed to dodge Raichu's thunderbolt, however it failed to maneuver away from the iron tail and got smacked in the face. Likewise, Combusken was struck by psyshock, falling to a knee. However, it quickly got back up and grabbed the Coolshades Wooloo, rushing Riachu and leaping into the air. With a mighty leap, Combusken leapt into the air and attempted to dunk on Raichu right then and there by slamming the coolshades wooloo down on him from above!
((Raichu! Roll 14+ Dex to dodge, else take 35% Dmaage! If you succesfully dodge, Coolshades Wooloo will get stuck in the sand nearby. If you don't, he'll bounce off and land not that far away.))
It then attempted to spit a glob of fire at Raichu!
((Raichu! Roll 12+ Dex to dodge Combusken's Ember; Else take 15% damage with a 10% chance of being burned))
Meanwhile, Honchcrow made a sharp turn away from Raichu and made a move right toward Hau, attempting to cut him down with an empowered Wing!
...However, before it got the chance Blue seemed to clue back into the battle happening next to her. With a yoink, she grabbed Hau and pulled him into a full body embrace, turning about in the same motion such that she put herself between him and the Honchkrow, holding him close for a moment. The aurora barriers around their bodies appeared to fused together, thicken and grow brighter as they got really close to each other like this. Honchkrow basically bounced off of them on impact, some alarmed squawking escaping it as it accomplished little more than shoving them lightly.
((Hau! ...Blue just bubble shielded an attack to protect you.))
Blue eyed the honchkrow for a moment over her shoulder before cautiously releasing Hau. She raised a single finger and lightly tapped the side of her head, winking knowingly. Hugs meant safety.
She then turned to confront the honchkrow, eyeing Ninetails out of the corner of her eye as the pokemon went about trying to enact their grand plan back near the boat in the distance. One could see a blizzard forming, partially obscuring the battlefield, occasionally offset by bursts of lightning racing across the clouds and ocean surface.

((...Aaand Rider is gone. This is awkward. Don't know what I did to mess that up, but I guess I've just gotta keep trying! Luckily for Lillie's ability to not die, Cool has expressed a desire to continue! So I will be moving on.))
...Moon. Inside the dimly lit insides of the victreebel, sunlight seeping in through the gap between its leaf covering its 'motuh' and its 'lips' you find yourself sitting in a pool of stinging liquid. The sides of the victreebel are smooth and a little bit slippery, impossible to grab. You simply slip back down immediately if you try and climb. You can stand, ...sort of? But the ground is slippery too and it takes actual effort to remain standing. In other words, standing is temporary until you get tired or stop concentrating or just lose your balance. You can also talk, but the victreebel seems happy to ignore you, leaving you feeling alone even if you call for help.
Acids also begin to secrete from the walls, and slowly begin filling up Victreebel from within. It stings a lot at first, eating away at Moon's clothes and then at Moon herself. However, after a while it stops hurting so much. The pain just... becomes a dull stinging. This happens earlier in places that were exposed earlier. Eventually Moon, you can only keep your head above the acids. Your clothes are long gone at this point. You can feel your strength fading away from you, and you can feel your skin softening up and loosening in a frankly unsettling fashion. You're melting, and you're not sure how much longer you'll be able to survive. You're also covered in severe burns, but you actually can't feel them very well or see them at this point. The acids aren't clear, which might as well be a mercy. Many a trainer has met their end this way. Perhaps you're already aware. Within a day, you'd be gone. You were already well into nourishing this plant pokemon.
...About nine hours have passed. You can tell that night has fallen through the gap above you.
By now, White was aware that something was wrong and she was worried. Sadly, Black had been unavailable for this particular mission, and so she was going alone. She probably hadn't had to, but she didn't feel like bothering the other girls or waiting around for people to sign up for a possible suicide mission was a good idea. Getting lost way out here in the sea was the easiest way to never get found.
...But she wouldn't accept her friend being lost. Landing on the beach, she promptly released her pokemon. "Alright. Everyone, I need you to split up and go searching for any signs of the others. Be careful. There's no telling what sorts of pokemon might be hiding out here. I'll wait here on the beach. Meet me back here if you find anything." White commanded. Tepig, Vivian and Victini spirited off to go look. She'd left Cofagrigus in case she needed someone raise the alarm if she didn't come back. They were rather slow anyway. She'd prefer fast movers for this search party, for perhaps obvious reasons.
Waiting there on the beach, White watched the sunset and anxiously eyed the trees beyond the beach. It was difficult to stay still, but she knew it was also important. Eventually though, Vivian came back and began gesturing for White's attention. "--You found something??" White asked. Vivian nodded and lead the way into the forest.
Arriving at a clearing, White discovered Moon's dropped bag. She looked around for a moment in search, but of course found nothing. "You didn't find any trace of where she might've gone?" White asked. Vivian shook her head. White carefully opened the bag, checking its contents. ...Her pokeballs were still here. That gave her a very bad feeling about whatever had happened. She doubted Moon would ever flee without her pokemon, even if the threat was lethal. That just wasn't something good-hearted trainers did.
...But she didn't see anything that hinted to her what might've happened. It was just trees, and maybe the occasional pokemon. No blood. No torn up ground. No tracks... How was she supposed to find Moon like this? ...After a few moments of thought, an idea occured to her. Empathy. What if she... used her teachings from Princess Peach to try and sense Moon?
White cleared her thoughts and tried to fill her heart with feelings of love, focusing all of her attention to try and make sure this worked. She wasn't great at love magic, but since she wasn't under pressure and this wasn't exactly the hardest technique to perform, it came to her relatively easy. After a few moments she zoned out, and all she could feel was the beating of her own heart. Then her sixth sense expanded She could feel other creatures hearts, with varying intensities based on their emotional depth and the feelings going through them. Vivian felt wildly different from that pokemon hiding from her not far off. She sensed fear. But that fear paled in comparison to something that immediately grabbed her attention. Pain. Despair. An aching loneliness. A sharp feeling that overwhelmed her senses briefly. Her eyes shot open and she shaprly turned her head to gaze at a victreebel hidden in the trees, looking rather plump and satisfied.
It took her a few moments to do the math, but then she realized...
Bam! Moon could feel her soupy prison jerk as the branch Victreebel was hanging from was suddenly shattered, dropping the pokemon down where it was caught overhead by an awaiting Vivian. A few moments later, Moon could hear White's voice call out a command. "Alright Vivian, Submission!!" White commanded. Vivian moved to lower and slam Victreebel onto its back with immense force, such that it promptly spilled its stomach contents outs across the ground, Moon sliding right on out onto the grass.
Crack! Victreebel lashed out at Vivian, but White was quick to follow up. "Give everything you've got! Sky Uppercut!!" she ordered. A strong thud could be heard and the cry of a victreebel soaring into the air. The pokemon was felled easily enough, having been taken off guard in its full and content state and defeated before it had a chance to put up much resistance by the powerful trainer.
Moon! ...You're kind of partially digested right now. As you are freed from the victreebel, you feel a wave of cold wash over you. Like--sharp cold. Probably gonna freeze to death cold. Your skin is actually really important to regulating body temperature? And since Moon is burned all over, her skin is doing a really bad job of keeping heat. She's basically entered hypothermia. It's also painful to try and get up. Putting weight on injured feet, knees, or hands is not going to be fun. Being a nurse, I assume Moon is smart enough to know that squirming around in the dirt is an awful idea likely to result in an infection or tearing of damaged skin.
White though. Once she sees the victreebel has been felled, she promptly rushed over to Moon's side and crouched down next to her. Moon, you can see that White is pretty grossed out by what she sees. A little horrified, yeah. However, she didn't hesitate much longer than it took to look Moon over before gingerly slipping her hands under Moon's back and pulling her into a loose embrace. She flinched briefly as she felt her hands and arms burn a little on contact with Moon's body. The other girl was still covered in quite a lot of acid, after all. Steeling herself though, she bore through it. She... definitely wasn't going to touch Moon with the rest of her body if she could help it though. Brief exposure to the acids wasn't going to kill her, but it might cause some irritating rashes or sunburn esque reactions later. "Moon, stay with me! I've got you!" White blurted out. She was lowkey panicking though. This was not a 'spray with a potion' type injury. Frankly, it was beyond the ability of medicine from the pokemon world to heal. She could feel how soft Moon's skin was. See that she was bleeding in some areas where it had torn. Her expression became torn as well. She couldn't carry Moon around like this. She'd get a lot more acid on herself if she picked her up fully. And of course, although White couldn't know this, Moon would succumb to hypothermia if she didn't act. She had time, but not nearly enough time to fly her back home.
"...Talk to me. Tell me what happened." White softly requested, attempting to hide her panic behind a calm, cool exterior. She very gingerly brushed Moon's hair away from her eyes, knowing better than to try and clean her for fear of damaging her skin further trying. Her hand trembled very lightly as she did this though. She was buying time as her mind raced, trying to figure out a safe way to carry Moon.

Moon looked down wit the Victreebell as Valorie was chased off by... a gang of eevees? She... has never seen an Eevee pack quite like that before. Still, there was not exactly much room to admire the wildlife, one of her best bets was gone, and... Nebby went somewhere. She didn't even notice when Nebby disappeared. Robin probably would not respond if he didn't know she was in danger... Same with Queen. She hated leaving her Pokeball for unnecessary reasons. And Rotom was currently reserving energy.
Unfortunately with the distraction over the Victreebell decided now was the time to put her down into it's body. She knew that Victreebells were notoriously difficult to escape if you were caught inside it. Still, Moon struggled for a bit. She couldn't accept the obvious at first. There was simply no way she'd be able to escape on her own. No matter how hard she tried it was like the leaf door covering her from the rest of the world was taunting her with that light glimmering. The acids tore at her clothes and body and after a while she stopped struggling. She didn't want to accept her fate but if she struggled too much she was only speeding up her doom at this point... Well, honestly she doubted there was any hope. She has tried all her life to be strong and after becoming champion, taking down Lusamine and stopping the other worldly invasion she thought she finally accomplished it. This situation however reminded her just how weak she was. Struggling to maintain consciousness for that glimmer of hope to arrive. It felt like an eternity. It was clear there was no way anyone was coming. Where was Nebby and Valorie? Did they meet horrible fates? Was Blue and Hau alright? And what about Lillie? Was it already too late? If only Tapu Koko or Zygarde was here! This... this is what despair and frustration does.
As she was about to close her eyes again, perhaps for good a suddenly rustle shook her back awake. She felt herself fall out of the Victreebell's stomach onto the ground. She briefly considered moving but she knew better. She only researched medicine since a young age, she knew full well that trying to move right now could only lead to more damage. She was in no position to do anything right now so she just laid there. She could only faintly hear the voice that called out an attack but could it of really been her? "Wh-white?" Moon asked weakly, she wanted to tell her that body contact was probably not a good idea right now but she wasn't feeling up to it.
"I... messed up. We came here to... find Lillie and split up. I was... caught off guard by the Victreebell... And Valorie was chased off by... Eevees. I couldn't reach my bag and... I was beginning to think it's over..." she struggled to explain. She wasn't exactly feeling top of her game right now, being in that thing for hours. She was still adjusting to the darkness... It really has been hours. "Still might be... I really don't know anything that could heal... this much damage... Medicine... has it's limits..." Moon struggled to add. Suddenly the sound of wings appeared as Nebby descended, looking concerned at Moon but knowing it's probably best the bat like Pokemon kept it's distance. "... Nebby. There you are... Wait... what are you doing here, White?" she didn't want to question a miracle but she wasn't part of this mission so why did she come? This island isn't exactly in leisurely walk distance. Had to come here deliberately.
Post by Black & White on Apr 2, 2020 7:06:38 GMT -8
White listened to what Moon had to say. She smiled weakly at Moon at her question, still holding her in an almost sitting position with her arms, despite the stinging. "...Just stay with me. We'll do... something." White replied. She still wasn't sure what she was supposed to do to handle Moon properly, mostly because she couldn't tell that Moon was experiencing hypothermia. She briefly glanced at Nebby, silently questioning if perhaps she had gone looking and not had the foresight to suspect Moon had been inside something as well. She assumed that was why her pokemon had had some trouble finding her anyway.
"...I came here to find you, Moon..! ...I was worried." she softly explained, as if it were the silliest question in the world. Meanwhile, Vivian was just kind of watching from a distance, glancing up at Nebby for a moment as she silently debated how to help without result.
Nebby glanced at the bunny for a second before back to Moon... Moonlight could probably help but there was something about Moon's look that told her that the moon's rays weren't enough to help fix this. "For me...? Glad you did... Thanks..." she uttered out before wincing. "... White, listen. I'm not saved yet. My body is so messed up from the acids that it can't regulate temperatures. In other words, I'm experiencing colds that could induce Hypothermia even if you can't feel it. Unless I find a significant amount of warmth and protection from outside sources, I could... Still give out..." she explained after a long moment.
"... I'm out of answers myself. I have curing items from the hospital that go beyond our world's limits but none of them can fend off Hypothermia. If we managed to get me back it will probably be too late... The Magical Girl Society wouldn't happen to have taught a way to help that, right?" she continued, she doubted there was but honestly in this position anything that might spark an idea was worth utilizing. "..." Nebby looked down at Moon for a moment. Oh, so that's why. Even if she could restore Moon's vitality, if her symptoms weren't cured it'd be pointless. She wanted her to conserve her energy...
Post by Black & White on Apr 25, 2020 11:12:45 GMT -8
White listened carefully as Moon spoke, remaining silent as she contemplated their situation. The issue of warmth--she hadn't even thought of that. As she did though, something occurred to her. A way to keep Moon warm, carry her, and the one place White could carry her where the acids wouldn't hurt her. A place where nothing could hurt her. White took a deep breath. ...Was she about to eat a vegan? White didn't like the symbolism there, but the truth was undeniable. That was by far the best way to ensure Moon didn't perish. "...Yeah, actually. Just--It's going to be a little gross, okay? But I'll take care of you. I promise." White softly replied. Rather bold words, for a mere apprentice of love magic.
As torn as her heart was about doing this, she managed to force herself through the act with sheer determination to save her friend. White closed her eyes to make it easier on herself and opened her mouth, drawing Moon up into it. As space distorted around her to allow her entry, it might seem as if she were immensely tinier than she ought to be, a rather confusing visual paradox occuring as she she was swallowed whole in a cartoonish fashion. A couple of gulps later, and she dropped into White's stomach, which ballooned outward as much as it was capable of to reduce the strain of the active spatial distortion effect. Moon, in turn, would find herself squished into a ball inside White. She could feel every movement of White's muscles around her as they brushed up against her with each little movement, but more than that she could feel White's abdominal muscles tightening, giving Moon something of a hands-free tummy hug, holding her firmly in their admittedly slimy yet strong embrace. The sound of a heartbeat could be heard from above her, and a very soothing and deep warmth began to flow through her, White's body taking over for her own and regulating her heat for her. It felt a lot like she was curled into a ball being hugged against White's stomach from all directions, only warmer and slimier, and of course--inside.
And then, a hand gently brushed across Moon's back from outside, a light rub of comfort. She could feel White's actual arms move to wrap around her. Perhaps it was redundant, but holding her stomach comforted White a little. "...I'm not the best at this type of magic, but I'll tough it out for the both of us and carry you until you're healthy enough to survive outside of my body." White explained, using the same language one might use to describe an unborn child. Perhaps Moon would notice, being a nurse and all. White then turned to address Nebby. "Nebby, I need you to follow me. You can touch and listen to Moon all you want, but you have to be close to understand her. I know she needs the company. ...Moon, I'm taking your bag. If you need me to switch pokemon or get anything out and use it, let me know okay? You'll have to rely on my arms and legs to do things. If you're having trouble communicating or you need my attention really urgently and you need me to stop and pay attention to you, just... shove my boob or something. I don't care." White instructed, adopting a somewhat lame tone at that last part. She rationalized that Moon would probably think she was gross anyway, so modesty served no purpose. She also needed a movement that wouldn't be confused for random or accidental squirming around, and her chest was practically resting atop her stomach, making it easy enough to jab at if one really tried. She wasn't 100% sure if Moon was upside right or upside down in there, but a kick would do just as well as pushing with her hands either way.

"... Gross?" she gave a questioning look to White's proposal. "... Okay, I trust you," she consented with whatever White had planned. Really no circumstance could be worst than your life being on a dangerous timer before you freeze to death. Then White closed her eyes and put the Alolan Kanto girl up to her mouth to which Moon watched in confusion... then her vision got... smaller? She winced and jerked a bit reflexively as she realized she was being put into another belly right after being freed from the last one. Still, despite her involuntarily reflexes, she had no actual strength left to actually fight her off as she was swallowed down and trapped in another stomach.
Her face entered the stomach lining of White followed by the rest of her body which began to relax. A lot of her initial struggles were instinct but she calmed down a bit. The position was awkward for her as she blushed a bit. It was a strong slimey prison... but something about it was more comforting than the last one. Is it just because she knew she could trust her safety in White's hands than a random predator or something else? At the very least the plan seemed to be working so she can't really complain.
Moon went to touch where White's hand was rubbing... it being awkward since she had to imagine her head was closest to her hips before feeling the hug. "... Wh-when you put it like that you make me sound like I'm an unborn child..." Moon pointed in a flustered tone... doesn't help that all she can imagine of how this looks on the outside is exactly that. <"Okay~! I'll follow you just like Moon and Lillie!"> Nebbie declared in what was more like a cosmic screech of assuranc... it was probably good Moon did not have a translation for that because anyone that got what that meant wouldn't exactly be assured.
Meanwhile Moon would probably be glad that White couldn't see how red her face has gotten from the "shove my boob". Sure, she got what White was insinuating but that did not make this any less embarrassing or... flustering. "R-right. I'll let you know if I need anything..." the nurse replied with an even more flustered tone. "I'm counting on you to take care of me while I'm unable to... so thanks, White," she added after a moment. Her bag was fairly standard, albiet it had ton of medical needs only someone with medical experience might understand. Her Pokeballs were mainly on her quiver, which seemed specialized to be held in grooves on the side, custom made to be stable when moving but accessible enough to grab a ball as long as you could reach your back. Inside the quiver was Pokeballs containing items and arrows, half of which did not actually have proper tips.

((Yo! Since Therider is back and wants to rejoin, I will be doing some emergency extra-emergency re-re-doing of the plan!))
...Hau! You and Blue are able to defeat the opposing party. Miraculously, you are able to catch the Coolshades Wooloo! It turns out it wasn't even infected. However, your pokemon sustain some damage in the process.
((Hau! Distribute 120% damage between your party))
It has been 9 entire hours since the battle started. The sun is setting and the island is beginning to fall into dusk. You have been searching for Lillie this entire time along the shore, and things are starting to look a little grim. You haven't even been able to search the entire shoreline yet. It's too big an island. “...Are you doing alright? I don't know how cold it gets out here, but we might be running out of time...” Blue asked in concern.
Blue 145 / 145 HP 45 / 45 Shield
The Skiller Skitty 175 / 175 HP 60 / 60 Shield
Kanghaskhan 205 / 205 HP 75 / 75 Shield
Ninetails 55 / 175 HP 60 / 60 Shield
Why don't you become one of my pokemon? A cutie like you would be a perfect fit for my team~! Think about it, okay?

White wobbled a bit and spread her legs out some so that Moon's squirming wouldn't knock her over. Feeling a hand press out from within her stomach, she lightly placed her hand upon Moon's in return, holding her belly there. "...Well, if it sounds like I'm prego, and it looks like I'm prego, and it feels like I'm prego... Iiii don't need a doctor to tell me I'm pregnant." White replied in a somewhat defeated tone. The ease with which she accepted that was made possible only by the fact that it was somehow a more comfortable way to view this than thinking of Moon as food. "Preeetty sure if I show up to the hospital like this they'll put me in the maternity ward, even if I explain what happened." White added with a little grimace. Would they call the cops on her if she did? ...Probably not, she reasoned. She was just doing what she had to to keep Moon alive. Thankfully she didn't have to worry about moon picking up on her somewhat harsh facial expression. She wasn't pleased, but at the same time... "...But if that's what it takes to save you, I don't mind one bit." White ... partially lied. She did mind, but it didn't matter much in her mind compared to bringing Moon back alive, so she was willing to ignore that and put on a strong face for Moon. This came with a light little pat of her stomach before she went back to holding it. Moon would start to feel a tingling sensation. Little streaks of pink magic formed inside White's stomach, providing a very dim pink light. The energy began to creep outward, forming little hearts that drifted into Moon's body. After a few moments, she would begin to feel a tingling sensation--which was all the more likely surprising considering she'd been numb prior. Rather than the burning of digestion though, this tingling sensation was soothing in nature and began restoring the feeling in her skin, love magic beginning to work its well--magic. It would take quite a long time to heal as much damage as Moon had taken. Probably measured in weeks, considering White's love magic wasn't very strong.
"I'm going to start looking for Lillie. So I'm sorry if things get a little bouncy. I know you probably wouldn't want me to turn around when every day that passes might be one too many..." White explained, beginning to walk. She did make a point to walk slower so as to be gentler on her occupant. That much couldn't be helped, but she could still help search. As she returned to the beach, she found Victini and Tepig waiting for her. They're kinda giving her stomach funny looks. "...Hey guys. Find anyone?" White asked. Tepig shook her head, but Victini enthusiastically nodded! "You did? Were they blonde, and wearing white clothes?" White asked. Victini nodded again. At this, White's eyes widened. "Alright, looks like Victini might have found something! Lead the way!" White commanded. Things might get a little bouncier as she jogged to keep up with her pokemon, but there was a considerable amount of padding all around Moon to help absorb the jostling.
Soon enough, White spotted a figure on the horizon. She began to approach. However, she quickly realized that wasn't Lillie. That was ... Hau! She hesitated a moment. "...Uuuh... I found Hau and Blue. What should I tell them..?" White awkwardly asked. She was going to leave this one up to Moon. She didn't mind being blunt and forward, but it wasn't just her decision anymore. She strongly doubted she'd be able to avoid a search party, so she didn't bother trying to hide or run away, instead waiting a moment to see what Moon had to say before moving to approach Hau and rejoin him. "Yo. I rushed out here when you guys didn't return. Are you both alright?" White greeted. Vivian, the chocolate colored lopunny with strawberry pink floof, was behind White. She had rather proud and standoffish body language for a species of pokemon normally known for being extremely cowardly, but what were the odds Hau even knew what a normal Lopunny looked like anyway?

"... As long as I don't need to call you Mom, you can consider this however you want..." Moon remarked lamely. There was just something... unappealing about calling White that in paticular... and this moment was kind of already humiliating as is. She understood that White was just doing what she needed to to save her, but humility was a feeling that was not easy to ignore today. "... Yeah, they probably would... although this kind of thing is not exactly unheard of. I think I might prefer that assumption over my colleagues knowing what happened..." she admitted awkwardly. Between her and White this was fine, but she really did not want to be made fun of for this.
The pat was admittedly comforting... well before the pink light worried her for a moment. She wasn't about to be digested by love was she?!... Wait, no, it was healing her? Huh, it was actually restoring her body!... Slowly... very very slowly... "... Yeah, from the looks of it, I might have to... rent this space for a long while from the looks of it. I appreciate it," Moon relented as Nebby followed after White back to the shore, the bat fluttering around close by just in case. The Pokemon looked between the two and White's belly for a moment... well it was kind of weird to see someone leave and come back with a fully belly.
As White hesitated, Nebby would suddenly fly forward and dance around Hau. ("You two are alright! Moon will be so happy!") the cosmic bat scree'd. "Hau and Blue are alright? That's a relie-... Oh no.." On one hand, Blue and Hau are alive!... On the other, her idol and one of her best friends was going to find out what happened to her! Not sure she was prepared for that. "... Um... Tell them that I had an emergency at the hospital and I called you to substitute... for me..." the girl began to spin a fib before she realized that wouldn't work. Hau knew Moon better than believing she would leave her Pokemon behind for no reason and White probably has her quiver and medical bag which would make the lie even more unbelievable. Not to mention White had a bigger stomach than usual... As much as she hated to admit it, there might be no choice but to clue them in... And Lillie too if they found her... "Just... be honest..." she relented in a defeated tone. It'd probably be worst if they somehow found out later anyway...
Nebby HP: 140 Shield HP: 45 Status: Out of the bag
"... We don't got time to waste. We gotta keep on going, gotta find Lillie. Besides, I'm not even hungry yet! And I can sleep tomorrow... OR the day after if we really need-"
The growl of Hau's stomach immediately in the middle of Hau's sentence was kind of funny, and ironic. Hau sure wished he had the time and peace of mind to laugh at that. Even catching that epic shaded Wooloo and having a massive high from that was wearing off, and Hau was tired. Rai-Rai and his team was battered and bruised, having participated in a massive fight and coming out on the other side... Well, tired.
Hau smiled sheepishly, which was also funny considering the Coolshades Wooloo standing to his side defiantly, as Taur-Hala, licking some bruises on his front legs. Hau's shirt had a slight rip on it, and his shorts were covered in mud, sand, and random bits of fur and hair from different Pokemon.
Things shifted quickly, however. Nebby and White found the duo, Nebby looking somewhat worse for the ware, and White... Wait, wasn't Valorie with Moon? Maybe they switched out halfway through? At this point, Hau didn't really care. Not that White wasn't cool and all!... But Lillie.
BUT L I L L I E.
She was out here! Alone... Maybe scared... Nah, she was probably being super brave! Lillie got a lot of Courage with her time with Moon and co. Yet...
Nine hours of searching and still... Nothing? Did she escape? Did Nebby figure out some cosmic powers and boot her back home to Alola? Did Lillie have a second Nebby? Was she eating Malasadas without him? What flavors did Lillie like again? Did Hau bring enough for everyone? He turned to check his sack, before White approached and began to ask questions. Well... Blue can answer questions.
With some gentle guiding, Hau led Taur-Hala over to by where White was standing, off to the side. The young man's demeanor was determined, serious even, with only small traces of the bright optimistic spirit shining through. "...No luck on your end, huh. We're gonna find her, right?... We gotta..."
The Coolshades Wooloo rolled over, it's cool attitude prevailing as it bleated defiantly at Moon. Turning to the massive Legendary Pokemon, Coolshades locked eyes with the Lunala and readied into a battle stance. This guy was gonna take down Nebby! How adorable!
"...Is Moon with you? I don't see her... Also, you wanna Malasada? I'm not hungry, but you guys might be."
Hau tried to smile again, but it almost seemed... faked? Nah, not Hau!... But you could believe that maybe this smile was a lot harder than normal to pull off.
