A 4'6'' tall girl stood before a skyscraper, her eyes trailing up it in wonder. A building like that... What would an Xatu be doing there? High up in the windows, she could see an Xatu staring down at the street. She tried to wave up to it and get its attention, but the pokemon showed no recognition of the gesture. Oh well... Dawn moved to enter the building, only to stop as a night stick was leveled at her from across the room. "Stop right there!!" a toad in a mall cop's uniform and bicycle helmet riding a segway demanded, zooming up to Dawn on his segway at the speed of powerwalk. Dawn recoiled slightly as he nearly ran over her toes in the process of getting up in her face, planting his nightstick under her chin and lifting it. Dawn froze in place, petrified where she stood. Oh Arceus, what had she done? “S-Sorry officer, I-I didn't mean to trespass or anything, I--...” Dawn began to sputter out, only to get cut off as Toad Blart, Mall Fungus, finished his inspection.
Toad Blart pulled down his shades slightly to reveal his bloodshot eyes, aimed firmly at Dawn's waist. "Dress code violation! Where do you get off coming into my mall wearing a skirt that short, huh?!" he snapped. “What?” Dawn replied in bewilderment. Somehow, she was no longer sure this guy was a real cop. “This isn't the mall... Mister, I--” Dawn began, only to get cut off again as the nighstick came back up and all but smacked her across the face. "Don't you back-talk me you little truant! I may have been put on unpaid leave from my job at the mall, but that's only because the mall was attacked by terrosists wielding weapons of MASS TAPIOCA PUDDING! I'm still a lean, mean, crime-fighting machine, you got it?" he asked. “...What?” Dawn replied, somehow more confused than before. "Don't you sass me! I see you around town, poisoning our youth with your body!" Toad Blart accused.
“...I... am the youth? I have a change of clothes...” Dawn replied in abject confusion. Had this guy been following her around town?? Before she could finish that thought though, the night stick came down over her head, whacking her rather hard. Dawn cringed and clutched at her head, a little yelp of pain escaping her. "You want to change?? HERE?! NOT ON MY WATCH YOU MENAAAACE!" Toad Blart began to scream, in turn causing Dawn to begin screaming in fright. Moments later, Dawn ran back out the doors with Toad Blart hot on her trail in his segway, waving his nightstick around menacingly and shouting commands at her, chasing her all the way down the street.
...By the time the group arrives, there's nobody else guarding the first floor.

Cynthia...Felt a bit bad as she walked up to this giant skyscraper, looking back between the now empty first floor, minus the Wild Child running past and heading up the stairs, and then close by, a Set of aura's, one Young, Soft, Troubled and in a panic, the other, Old, Wrathful, vengeful and a little crazy, which began to assault that softer of the Aura's. Cynthia felt a bit torn as there was both the matter of a young girl all alone running into a building, and that of a girl getting chased down!...Well, of the two, One was in immediate danger. and so, Cynthia followed along the path of running Dawn had taken, to find her and Toad Blart in there scuffle!
Two loud stomps followed up behind Cynthia, as Garchomp looked down to Cynthia with a glare in its eyes, before looking at the Segway'd man chasing...Dawn. "...Gar?" It asked, as Cynthia read Garchomps own aura. It wanted to dig under the guard and just slap him down like a fish. "No, I dont think thats too awful necessary." Cynthia would say, as her Beads aside her head began to resonate with Aura...
And Suddenly, Toad Blart might feel the very force of Life Itself solidify between him and dawn in an invisible disc, Before it pulsed back in his face, Pushing him with incredible force from Cynthia's own hand, posibly knocking him off of his segway!
"Oh no sir!" Cynthia would cry out, running up to Toad Blart. "It looks like some Hooligan Youngster of a Ghost just knocked you over! And i Think its moving to the Mall to go spray paint nasty words like 'Butt' and 'Rump' on your wall!" Cynthia would tell Toad Blart, hoping his insanity might convince him in such an obvious lie, as Cynthia quickly did her best to step over said Toad, and come to...
And like that...Cynthia's Anxiety shot up and out. She gulped, Sweating a bit behind her head, as she tried her best to look as proper as she could before Dawn. She had recalled the last few times her and dawn had met...
"You thought you could HIDE from me, Cynthia?!"
"I bet you dont see them calling YOU the future champion!"
"I deserve to be the Champion!"
...Rude. Prideful...Zealous. She stung Cynthia each word she spoke in that tone...Was Cynthia really just-- Blind to the way Dawn really was all along, or was it just...something had happened to change between sinnoh and coming here? Cynthia just wasnt sure, but after the emotional years she had gone through, after the Xerneas event and what had you...She was ready to embrace whatever words Dawn said now. Be they Harmful or thankful...She would handle it.
"Not too hurt, are you Dawn?" Cynthia would ask, Smiling to the smaller girl.

Cham Cham. ...You encounter a set of stairs. As you go to enter them, however, an alarm sounds off as you open the door leading into the stairwell. It sounds like a fire alarm. Whoops! Within, however, is a very long series of stairs testing your very nerves as they tempt you to dare to slowly and agonizingly scale their very heights. How dare you climb these stairs?!
Toad Blart got up and fixed his shades, furrowing a brow at Cynthia as she addressed him. "...Well I'll be a cold uncle to a group'a jaywalking, litterin' loiterers before I let some spectral menace vandalize MY MALL!!" Toad Blart replied in disgust, pausing just long enough to second guess running off. He turned to address Cynthia. "...Keep an eye on her for me. And give her a good whoopin' while you're at it. Someone's gotta parent the evil out of her." he irritably complained, shaking his head in dissilusionment. "I'LL BE BACK!!" he roared, jumping back on his segway and speeding off at the speed of ... power walking.
As for Dawn... she had a few very light bruises where she'd been struck, and a very slight bloody nose. She sorta hung there for a moment, gasping for breath and trying not to freak out at Toad Blart's antics. Cynthia had braced herself for whatever Dawn would say, but was she really ready to handle her response? When they were finally left alone, Dawm breathed a sigh of relief. She then promptly ran over and hugged Cynthia! Which, given she was a shorty mcshort short, was necessarily a hug around Cynthia's waist. Dawn was so short, in fact, that her head slipped just underneath Cynthia's chest and planted itself right into Cynthia's belly, where she brushed her cheek against the other in a highkey affectionate manner. “...Ooo, thank goodness. I thought that guy was going to beat me silly!” Dawn softly greeted. “I guess I owe you, huh? Thanks for saving me again, Cynthia. I don't know what I'd do without you.” she lamented, a brief hint of shame creeping into her voice. She quickly moved on, however.
“...Rump~?” Dawn asked, giggling at the terms Cynthia had used to distract Toad Blart. By now, perhaps Cynthia would have noticed that this Dawn's aura didn't quite match the Dawn's she knew. Frankly, they didn't resemble one another as far as aura sight was concerned. This Dawn's aura was weaker than the Dawn she knew. However, there was a very powerful presence magnifying it such that she might easily mistake this Dawn's aura for being substantially larger than most humans, as well as having a darkness to it that frankly didn't reflect her actions.
“...I missed you.” Dawn softly remarked with her face burried against Cynthia. There was a soft aching in her tone. Cynthia could hear the clinginess. “This place is too weird... I saw a really buff man eat a book!” she commented in distress. She wasn't even going to bring up the man with a bag on his head. she attempted to loook up at Cynthia, only to realize something was blocking her vision. “--...Sorry.” she added after a moment, quickly releasing Cynthia. Much as she hadn't quite been ready, there was a time and place for everything. “...Can I come with you, please? I don't think I'm ready to be on my own. Not yet...” she very softly pleaded.

When Cham Cham opened the door, and triggered an alarm, she must have thought that it would be a strange way to challenge her...
"I accept challenge, good for legs, make Cham Cham think of temple in Green Hell." Cham Cham said as she climbed up the stairs without worry, she would wonder how high up the stairs would lead her as she continued to work her way upwards.

Post by Champion Cynthia on Feb 12, 2020 9:43:37 GMT -8
Cynthia had a expression of confusion on her face as the aura of this girl she had presumed to be the Prime Dawn, upon closer inspection was alot...Nicer! Not as rough or Prideful, but Kinder. Gentler. and a bit weaker as well! That...Surprised Cynthia more than anything, as Cynthia 's Aura Beads on her head had resonated even harder...What WAS That?! The Aura connected to Dawn's, It was... Dark. A Evil, Menacing inky force behind Dawn's Aura, That had made Dawn's aura boom to such an extent, it actually made Cynthia mistake this Dawn for the other version, and only upon closer examination, Would Cynthia realize the truth. A Truth that actually made her a bit saddened.
This wasnt her Dawn, Was it? Cynthia knew fairly well from the Magical Girl Society, with Zelda's, Amitwo's, 'Alternate Universes' and the Whatever that weird blue girl yells about every day about Paradoxes and Timelines...But the Aura doesn't lie. Someone can change there aura, of course, but Cynthia had a pin on these things. She wasn't Cynthia's Dawn, and Cynthia, wasnt Dawn's, Well, Cynthia. Whatever experiences they had had were totally different.
But, at the same time, Cynthia had felt something just as true as any Aura...A Hug around her waist. Affectionate and Warm! Cynthia had yet to be trained in Love Magic, Mostly due to her own anxiety of admitting to Peach about the 'Xernas' Incident, and how she had used her heart of compassion for such a cruel act, But she had been around the girls just enough to know when a hug was just a hug, and when a hug was a sign of physical admiration and joy upon seeing a person.
Granted, Not like Cynthia could see the expression of Dawn's face past-- well, Obstacles, But Aura happened to help fill the pieces to Dawn's emotions Cynthia couldn't automatically predict from a glance. Cynthia had begun to run through options in her head to what to do, knowing that this wasn't her Dawn, and knowing that there were experiences they didnt know about...
"...Hm? Oh, You dont owe me a thing, Dawn." Cynthia had replied, Realizing she was spacing out quite a bit at this Aura-revelation she had made. "Around here, People like that...Its okay to bring out your Pokemon to fight back, you know." Cynthia had said to Dawn as some sage advice of a woman who had lived on Li for a while, Before Dawn had questioned Cynthia's use of the word 'Rump', topped with a chortle befitting of someone like Amitwo or Valorie back at the MGS! Cynthia hadn't even realized she said such a thing!
"Oh-- Dear. I guess Peach's brand of humor is rubbing off on me, Hehe~ Ill explain later." She would justify her use of such a Powerful Word as 'Rump', But then there was an even tighter grip to her waist, as Dawn's face was even more hidden into the embrace of Cynthia's Midsection, as Dawn's tender voice of a girl who had just been put into Li, as Cynthia predicted, was clearly pretty upset at this whole thing.
It was pretty clear in Cynthia's eyes...Dawn needed Cynthia. Like a teen trying to go to a party way too adult for them, or like a child lost in a shopping mall, Dawn needed Cynthia's guidance. Atleast for a little while. And, in a Respect...Cynthia needed Dawn. She needed to see her protected, atleast...After all, Why would Cynthia have a Heart of Compassion, if she couldn't share that compassion to a girl who truly resembled what Cynthia thought of Dawn?
"...I missed you too, Dawn." Cynthia said with a smile. "Er-- Try not to let the weird people around here make you stumble too much." She said, As Dawn had finally released Cynthia's waist to allow Cynthia use of her legs once more, as the Champion smiled down to Dawn, now that she wasnt in Cynthia's Blind spot. "Now then, I think-- Oh! Dawn, your nose!" Cynthia had suddenly went from calm and studious to Panic mode, as she realized Dawn had been given a few wounds and even a bloody nose from that Mall Cop! Who even WAS That dude?!
"Here, here, Hold still..." Cynthia would say, swiftly producing a handkerchief and getting onto a single knee wiping away the little drip of blood from Dawn's face, and checking Dawn's head, peeking on her hat to see where the brims are. Dawn's compliance in this matter is more an optional matter, as Cynthia sighs. "Well, Besides the nose, it looks like he just left some raw skin in a few places. Like i said, its okay to have your Pokemon help you fight against people who are hurting you like that! What if i hadnt--..." Cynthia was beginning to sprout a 'Mom Rant' at Dawn, before taking a deep breath and just...
Hugging Dawn around her shoulders, Now pulling Dawn into a more Face-to-Face type of Hug... "...Thats alright dawn. You dont have to be alone if you dont want to." Cynthia would say, Smiling happily. "Now come on. We got a Xatu to catch~" Cynthia would say...Before quickly checking her shirt for any Blood stains, remembering Dawn had her bloody nosed face all in her shirt just a moment ago. Well, if there were any, it doesnt seem to be a too drastic stain. Advantages to wearing All-Black Clothing!
"You may want to bring out a pokemon, By the way. Were more than likely going to find some conflict in that building." Cynthia had suggested to Dawn, As she motioned to the Skyscraper Cham Cham had went into earlier, as Cynthia made sure that Dawn was right behind her on there way there.
As did Garchomp, who at this point was following behind Dawn to glare at anyone who happened to be behind the group of them. Always pays to have Garchomp Bodyguards!
Opening the First Floor of the Skyscraper's doors, Cynthia would walk in with Dawn, looking to the Stairwell and the Elevator. She shut her eyes, Aura Beads resonating to see a Greenish, Youthful aura up the Stairwell. "...Do you mind taking the stairs, Dawn? I think our third companion went ahead without us." Cynthia would say, laughing a little at that.

Dawn obliged when Cynthia went to tend to her ... comparatively mild injuries. She seemed perfectly comfortable being handled, obediently standing still and allowing Cynthia to adjust her and pluck off her hat without complaint. She seemed... used to this.“Oh, yeah. He got me really good right on the face.” Dawn replied, wincing slightly as Cynthia touched a sensitive spot. She waited until she was all cleaned up and passed inspection, sort of giving Cynthia an incredulous look. “ . . . You want me to hurt people? Won't I get arrested or something? That seems kinda... delinquent.” Dawn replied, somewhat uncomfortable with the idea. She had been taught pretty well explicitly not to do stuff like that, after all! (...Why aren't pokemon 'people'?) a voice in Dawn's head asked her. (Um--...I don't know, actually! They are, I guess.) Dawn awkwardly replied. (...It is okay to hurt pokemon, but not humans. Humans must be protected from all harm. "We" must give everything to humans. Such is Human Law. Does it not seem unjust?) the voice asked. At this, Dawn responded out loud--to both parties. “...I guess you're right. This place is pretty different from home. Maybe I should think about protecting myself. Viva la revolution!” Dawn remarked, throwing a fist into the air. (...They never taught you where Humans Law originated from, did they? Soon enough, I will show you.) the voice replied. “--Oh, are you trying to find a pokemon? I think I saw it up in that building... I don't own any flying type pokemon, though.” Dawn replied, apparently surprised to find herself on a mission.
As they arrive, the alarm is still going off. It shuts off after a few moments, though. Dawn glanced over to the now open elevator, within which she could see a skeletal elevator operator snoozing inside, a peculiar elevator tune softly emitting from within. Dawn recoiled very slightly at the sight of the skeleton.
“...Sure! The stairs sound great. It can't be any harder than climbing Mount Coronet, right? Let's go see what Xatu is doing up there!” she remarked, very enthusiastic about ignoring that elevator as she broke out into a ...pretty lackluster run. She wasn't a very fast runner, to put it bluntly. Those short legs probably didn't help.
...One long stair climb later.
“Uuuugh... Is this the right floor? My feet huuurt.”
...BAM!! As Cham Cham is passing a door on her way up, a door gets ripped off its hinges and thrown through the air at Cham Cham. It then crashed into the guard railings and went toppling down the stairwell, passing Dawn and Cynthia a few moments later.
((Cham Cham! ...Roll not to get hit by an explosively launched door shaped projectile! 16+ Dex passes. Else, take 40% damage and get knocked to the ground.))
...From the doorway, an Alakazam glowing with an almost starvia-esque purple aura could be seen holding a hand out, his eyes glowing a crimson red color. A grumpig with a similar aura and eyes stepped through the door first, followed by the alakazam. Dawn squealed in fright as the door came crashing down past them. “Woah! What was that??” she asked Cynthia.
((Cynthia! Make a dex roll to catch up to Cham Cham and the battle in a timely fashion! If you roll 20+, you get all 3 actions. If you roll 10+, you get 2 actions. If you roll lower, you only get 1 action.))
Post by Maverick Hunter Zero on Feb 12, 2020 22:38:49 GMT -8
Cham Cham didn't pay the others any mind, but with the sudden explosion of the door flying off it's hinges, Cham Cham would attempt to get out of the way... 5tNZyTyxp_1d20+2=8(Frack!)
Poor catgirl, the door slammed into her with enough force to knock her to the ground, though she would be back up with a malevolent glare. "Owie... That not very nice, bad monsters need hurt!" Cham Cham would immediately attempt to deliver such hurt by trying to slash at one of the Pokémon with the claws of her pawpad mittens. p_1d20+1=5(piss poor Scratch on the Shadow Grumpig, 8% dmg and 70% mortal wound chance if it connects)
Then tried again... p_1d20+1=14(Slightly better Scratch on the Shadow Grumpig, see above)
And yet again for good measure p_1d20+1=12(almost bad scratch on the Shadow Grumpig, same as first)

"Oh, You Arnt...?" Cynthia would ask, as Dawn herself seemed fairly confused by the fact that Dawn herself didnt have any idea what Cynthia was talking about. Well, Thats fine enough, Cynthia figured at her side, Dawn would be safer than anywhere else in the sphere, So she would simply have to bring her along. "Well, Yes, That Xatu is a pokemon belonging to a police officer. So, we need to get it back down and back to its partner...If you'll help, of course~" Cynthia would add, smiling as she passed the Skeleton Elevator Operator, Judging that the stairs would be the quickest way to get to Cham Cham as well as where they needed to be if they weren't hampered by Technology that could be subject to any manner of mishaps and mishandling. Nothing can go wrong in an elevator!
Besides the Tired complaints of Dawn, which Cynthia had not only heard, but had made her giggle as she gave quite a hustle to ascend the stairs. Long Legs + A Hobby of exploring steep mountains for archaeological sites make for some strong legs! "Awww, Come now Dawn, surely those legs that made it all across the wide region of Sinnoh can go a few more steps--"
Aaaand Door. Well, The Door that fell through the railings and fell past at incredible speed, Blowing her long blonde hair back from the breeze, as Cynthia's small tease at Dawn's expense was cut off, and a more urgent realization there was a fight going on was in place, as Cynthia put on a serious expression! "Come on Dawn, There's trouble!" She would say, Before Suddenly Cynthia turned back around, Took a few steps down and Scooped Dawn right up into her arms, Running up the stairs as fast she she could, Now Carrying Dawn Bridal Style, as Garchomp carried up the rear! Again, Dawn's Compliance in this is Optional.
RZc|aX2Qp_1d20-3=14 (Dex Roll of Cynthia! 10+, So, 2 actions allotted!)
Finally arriving at the Blown Away Door Frame, And Staring at a Shadowfied Alakazam and Grumpig, Cynthia would firstly Set Dawn back down onto her pink sneakers, and with a flourish, Spun around in quick motion to return to looking at them, Pointing at them! "How dare you two go out of your way to hurt an innocent--" ...And Watched as the wild child was whapping them with her large mittens. "...Prehistoric child!" Cynthia would loudly proclaim, as the Pride of the Protector of Children she had earned the title of those years ago swelled in her. "As Sinnoh's Champion, I, Cynthia, Will Fight you back! Come on Garchomp!" Cynthia would loudly proclaim, as the Sand-Shark Pokemon would suddenly Start...Evaporating? Well, More Aura-fying as the appropriate term, as Garchomp became a Deep Blue Aura that enveloped and surrounded Cynthia in the shape of the Dragon, as Cynthia and Garchomp perfectly became one!
(Aura Bonded as First Action!
When Aura-bonded with Garchomp, Cynthia's STR and CON Rise by 10 points each, Granting her +3 Modifiers. This lasts for 3 turns, and, for 10% Recoil, can last an additional turn per 10% Recoil. However, Cynthia may simply choose to not have the stat Buff, but continue to use the Moves of Garchomp freely, including her Final Smash! 5 turn cool down. )
And Proceeding, Cynthia quickly stomped herself into the Room with the force of a Garchomp, And Reeled the back of her hand back, as the Garchomp Aura around her took the form of the Pokemon reeling its claw back, As The Aura Plunged its Claw forward for a Dragon Claw, Following the Motion of Cynthia, Trying to Slap that Alakazam right in his face!
p_1d20+3=12 (Cynthia used Dragon Claw! When used on Magical Beings/Arcane enemies such as Elemental's or Fairy's (Including fairy type pokemon), Deals Half Damage. When used against other Dragons, Wyverns, Lizard's or similar creatures, Deals 1.5x Damage! Otherwise, 18% Flat damage.)
Status: Aura Bond! (Garchomp: +3 STR/+3 CON For 3 Turns. Additional turns for 10% Recoil.)

Dawn softly whined at Cynthia's teasing, considering for a moment her aching legs and the climb to Mount Coronet. It was honestly depressing for her. These were not the legs of a hero... Before she could really get herself down over it though, an actual door came crashing down the stairwell from above, eliciting a yell of fright from Dawn, who cowered away from the railings for fear of being hit by the door. Before she could react further though, Cynthia was shouting things at her and she felt pair of hands grab her from behind. E-Excuse me?? Once again though, she didn't have a chance to react before a pair of strong arms wrapped around her and scooped her up. Next thing she knew, she was getting carried bridal style up the stairs! Dawn instinctively clung onto and nestled into Cynthia in response out of a somewhat reasonable fear of being dropped and having a very painful fall down the stairs. “W-Woah..!” Dawn blurted out, though she made no move to resist being held or carried.
(...I think your larger companion wishes to keep you.) a voice in Dawn's head remarked. (K-Keep?? What do you mean, keep??) Dawn replied, having very slight trouble thinking calmly given the circumstances. (It seems like you like her a lot. Am I wrong?) the voice asked. (N-No... You're right. She's beautiful, and strong, and kind. She's the best... That's why she's a champion!) Dawn fondly replied. (...So why don't you ask her to catch you?) the voice asked. (Wh-What?? ...B-Because I'm a human.) Dawn replied, blushing slightly in a flustered manner at the idea. (...Ah. Right. I forgot that humans form their lifelong partnerships using rings instead of balls.) the voice remarked. At this, Dawn's pupils contracted in shock and her blush intensified, her heart rate somehow rising even higher than it already was, pounding against the inside of her chest. (...I believe this is the way a trainer carries another human when they have claimed them as their own. Though, I have very rarely observed a trainer choosing to catch someone of their own gender. Why is that?) the voice asked. However, it received only a bunch of panicked, extremely flustered! (No no no no no!!)s in response.
By the time Cynthia sat her down, Dawn looked thoroughly rattled, trembling slightly where she stood and sort of clumsily reaching around in her bag for a ball. (...Why are you so upset?) the voice asked. (...I can't get married to Cynthia! I'm too young! P-Plus... that's not like raising pokemon. That's for when you love someone!) Dawn protested. (...Do you not love your pokemon?) the voice asked. Dawn pulled Piplup's pokeball free and gazed at the ball for a moment. (...Yes. I do.) she relented, calming down a bit as the topic was changed. (...Is it because you don't love her?) the voice asked. Dawn glanced up at Cynthia briefly, before tossing her pokeball. “Go, Piplup!” she announced. (...No... I--... I love her a lot.) Dawn very lamely replied. She really hoped she didn't need to explain different types of love here. However, to her relief the voice did not ask. (To make your mind stronger, you must deconstruct these ideas until you understand their origins. Only then can you reassemble them using their best parts to create something better, or abandon them if you find you have been brainwashed. I am here to guide you along that path.) the voice lectured. (Right...) Dawn softly replied.
It was time to battle! Dawn could see that the enemy alakazam was about to try and move out of the way of Cynthia's attack. “Piplup, use bubblebeam!” she commanded. A moment later, Piplup used bubblebeam to block off Alakazam's escape such that it had to stop lest it floated right into a storm of painfully popping bubbles!
EEjpkEPrp_1d20+3 (Piplup's Bubblebeam! Stuns Alakazam so that Cynthia's Dragon Claw will it)
Alakazam indeed stopped, only to get struck dead on by Garchomp and knocked against the wall! It emitted a rather unnatural growling noise as it regained its senses, its eyes glowing with a red energy that betrayed its madness. A psychic aura surrounded Cynthia, and the shadow alakazam attempted to lift her off her feet and toss her back down the stairs in a violent manner!
((Cynthia! You are being Y E E T E D! Roll 16+ strength to fight free of the psychic grapple. Else, take a fall down the stairwell, taking 15% damage. Make a dex roll to try and prematurely stop your fall and add 3% damage for every point below 20 your roll is.))
It then ignored Piplup entirely... and attempted to grab Dawn. Dawn clutched at her throat in alarm as she felt a telekinetic force grasp her with crushing strength, cutting off any scream of fright she might've tried to emit. Rather than try and throw her down the stairs as it did Cynthia though, it violently jerked her toward the railing... and attempted for force her over into a lethal fall to the bottom of the stairwell. In response, piplup emitted some panicked chirps and attempted to chase after her, but failed to pull Dawn away from the edge.
((Cynthia. Cham Cham. Feel free to try and stop Alakazam either by catching Dawn or attacking Alakazam. Whichever you think is a better plan. Cham Cham, your ability to do this depends on whether you get hit by Grumpig's attack.))
Meanwhile, the Shadow Grumpig squealed in distress as Cham Cham began scratching it. It promptly attempted to grab and restrain her in retaliation!
((Cham Cham! Roll 15+ dex to avoid the grapple!))
It then promptly... seemed to experience some digestive distress, and released an absolutely massive and foul belch at Cham Cham.
((Cham Cham! ...If you got grappled, you can't dodge. Else, roll 14+ Dex to get the hell out of the blast zone. Else, take 30% damage. Additionally, make an INT roll to mentally overcome the gross factor. Else, lose an action and be afflicted by sickness.))
Post by Maverick Hunter Zero on Mar 16, 2020 18:34:06 GMT -8
Cham Cham got a little careless and would try to attack the Alakazam, but sadly, that darn Grumpig would attempt to grab her... DEX ROLL: PeK5MJqYp_1d20+2=4(I hate this crappy set of bad rolls)
And it did so successfully, followed up by burping in Cham Cham's face, which pretty much made her angry, that Grumpig won't like Cham Cham when she gets angry... INT ROLL: p_1d20-1=9(I blame that damn site dice roller for this one, this is why I use real dice for my rolls)
"Bad piggy! You no hurt me, I kill you now!" Cham Cham said with a fury that said only one thing... That Grumpig is dead meat.
Even if she felt sick, Cham Cham didn't mind since she was a damn healthy young girl in spite of her childishness. So she would attempt to knock the Grumpig down with an Ass Attack in retaliation STR ROLL: p_1d20+1=15(Hip Check of Ass Attacks You @ Shadow Grumpig, 12% dmg and 50% chance of Mini status if it connects)
Cham Cham would then pull out a rope banana and nom the entire thing! CHA ROLL: p_1d20+3=7(Cham Cham eats a Banana and restores 7% HP to herself!)

With Garchomp's Aura, Cynthia was suddenly planted onto the ground as the Psychic powers implanted her extra tight onto the ground, as she resisted the psychic pull completely, as Cynthia relaxed after a brief moment, once the Psychic had worn off of her. "Nice attempt, But you're gonna have to try harder than--" Cynthia would say, but was interrupted as Dawn was suddenly getting pushed over the railing! Cynthia, in the panic decision, Moved and quickly tried to pull Dawn back over against Alakazam's power!
p_1d20+3=22 (STR Check to pull Dawn Back!)
And with Cynthia's amazing Power, She toom a hand under Dawn's back, and pulled her up into-- Yet another Bridal Carry! However, This time, cynthia would Bridal Carry Dawn right into the Door where Alakazam was, and quickly raised her heel back, Performing a Dip with Dawn in-arm, as Garchomps Aura Reeled back...
And A Kick-Bullet Punch Combo!
p_1d20+3=20! (Bullet Punch Kick! 18% Damage, Deals an extra 6% Damage against Bubble shields. 3% Recoil.)
With that mighty Kick, Cynthia would quickly try to shove her way into the Room that alakazam and Grumpig were inside, As to prevent any further attempts to fling them over the stairs, as Cynthia set Dawn back onto her feet, and quickly stomped her way to Alakazam, To deliver some Dragon-Claw Slaps!
p_1d20+3=16 (Dragon Claw! 18% Damage!)
p_1d20+3=19 (Dragon Claw! 18% Damage!)
"What is with these pokemon! They're totally out of control, there Aura's pitch black!" Cynthia had asked aloud, trying her best to get all of Alakazam's attention at this point!
Status: Aura Bond! (Garchomp: +3 STR/+3 CON For 2 Turns. Additional turns for 10% Recoil.)

Dawn was scooped into Cynthia's arms, obediently curling a bit in her arms to make herself easier to carry, huddling into Cynthia for fear of being dropped or hit. As Cynthia pummels through the door and the alakazam, a soft whine of fright escaped the trainer in her arms. However, she is able to plow through and set Dawn down, whose now jellyfied legs wobble underneath her. She nearly fell down, but managed to stay standing. “I don't know..! They look all... dark... and corrupt!” Dawn remarked, declining to comment on Cynthia's frightening display of power. The alakazam was struck repeatedly and went down, fainting.
Moments later, Piplup rushed the grumpig and dove into it, slamming into it and beginning to poke it repeatedly on the skull, disrupting its concentration. After it got attacked by Cham Cham it staggered around until finally falling past the railing in an ironic twist of fate. Piplup hopped off of his head as he did this,It could be heard squealing as it descended the stairwell before abruptly falling silent.
“Heeey... So--That was weird! I've never seen a wild alakazam before. Or whatever that was. Should we like, call the police or something?” Dawn asked, momentarily forgetting they had a mission here.

Cynthia relaxed her stance now that Alakazam and Grumpig had been taken care off, Making a bit of a solemn expression of disgust as the Grumpigs squealing became deathly silent once it had hit the bottom of the stairwell...Regardless, Cynthia's Aura-empowered state would mellow out and fade, as Grachomp would solidify and return to its form, Letting out a roar of tiredness as it looked around. All enemies gone. Cool. Cynthia's Garchomp moved to start inspecting the area to find some food around here.

Cynthia would sigh, Crossing her arms and glaring quite seriously. "A Dark Aura of Mystery surrounding innocent pokemon, causing them to attack...Im starting to think there's more to this building than a missing Xatu." Cynthia would say, Closing her eyes in though...But, It seems even Cynthia's batteries were running low, So, She moved to Recharge herself, By Looking to Dawn and smiling.
"Well, Believe it or not...Were kind of here to do that job for them, Dawn." Cynthia would explain, Now giving Dawn full attention as to help her understand, Eye contact and all. "Kind of like back home, when the police couldn't particularly invade Team Galactic's Headquarters, But a Ten year old could...?" Cynthia would explain in a term to help Dawn understand. "...If your not comfortable being here Dawn, I can help you go back down to ground floor and you can head home. But, I think this will be a great opportunity for you to Grow as a Team with your Pokemon! And having you here makes me feel alot safer as well~" Cynthia would comment...Perhaps a bit of verbal courage would help Dawn alot!

After the fight, Cham Cham would waste no time, and would attempt to find a bathroom, preferably to avoid vomiting on the floor... WIS ROLL: GplPJRgap_1d20-1=0(GDI...)
Sadly, she had no choice, but instead of on the floor that she and the others were on, she would throw up over the railing onto whatever became of that very unfortunate Shadow Grumpig. "Feel sick from bad pig, need lie down..." Cham Cham said, clearly feeling a bit queasy as a result of being sick from that belch unleashed upon her by said Grumpig. Cham Cham HP: 097/160 Shield: 55/55 Status: Queasy Sickness Cooldowns: Hip Check(armed and ready) Banana(3)1d20
