EndCT started to step onto the ferry, but something in the window of the boat caught his attention: his reflection. Windows, especially those on boats, didn't serve as the best mirrors, but it was just enough to tell that something was definitely different. More than just CT losing his powers, had changed. His hair had gone entirely black, and eyes turned a deep green, rather than black and purple. He also seemed to have lost his fangs. "Why in bloody hell didn't anyone tell me?!"
"I uh..." Musashi looked away, scratching his head. "I didn't know how to tell you, CT. I.. I mean." he sighed. "You're like that because you saved me from suffering through that."
"You look like a charming gentleman for a full-fledged human; I used to have black hair and green eyes too, long ago." Shade said to him, slumping on the wall, looking like he was on the verge of falling asleep. CT rolled his eyes, at the both of them. "Blast it all. How am I going to explain this, to your mother?" he said, directed a
Finale, part 7The others awoke inside a lab. More specifically, a containment unit quite similar to the one he had them put in, back in Hoenn. Typical Elvis set-up. "I wouldn't bother." a voice rang out, directed more at Shade than anybody else. "I worked out that little Ghost problem." he said, a touch of smugness in his voice. "Or rather, Nicodemus worked it out." Elvis said, walking out from the shadows. "The boy is quite brilliant, although incredibly stupid, at the same time. He helped me with quite a bit of this, under the guidance of Mr. Raith, of course." he continued, patting Shii on the head. "I'm sure you're familiar with Artemis, as well. I must congratulate you on that one, Nicky. Absolutely brilliant work, and she's simply wonderful." he said, resting a hand on the lioness' head.
"Escaping is one thing." CT growled, before Nico could say anything. "Threatening us is another thing. But using my son? I swear, as soon as I get out of here-"
"You'll what, hm? The only way you're getting ou
Finale, part 6The ferry rides to the other islands weren't terribly long. CT and Nico stepped onto Knot Island, while Ahti and Musashi landed at Navel Rock. Both were homes to powerful legendary Pokemon, and both good chances that Elvis could be there. He had to make such a show, out of everything. "So, uh...where do we even start? I don't think there's even anybody on this island, to ask." Nico said, scanning the shores.
"Of course there are people on this island, Nick." CT said, looking at some of the raggedy old buildings, there. "They're most likely senile, but there are people." Nico just rolled his eyes. "Well, we might as well ask if they've seen anything. There's only a few houses here; what could it hurt?" he shrugged. "Alright, alright. Go play detective. Meanwhile, I'll ask somebody in the Pokemon Center, assuming they can hear me and don't immediately forget my question." CT grumbled.
Randy watched CT and Nico from a distance. "Can't we just hit them, now?" He growled.
"Not yet." Zee sai
Finale, part 5The ferry finally landed on Boon Island. "Well, should we split up?" Nico suggested. "Right, because that's always such a fantastic idea." CT grumbled, tugging his jacket. "Well, what are we supposed to do? Search every island, one by one?" Nico snapped back.
"Elvis has a gigantic ego. Chances are he's on Knot Island, Navel Rock, or Birth Island. It's where several legendaries have been spotted, after all." CT said. "Actually, Nico might be right." Ahti sighed. "It would take much too long, to search every island. You are also right. He would be on one of those three. We can split in groups. If we're wrong and don't find anything, we will meet back here. If we are right and we find him, we at least won't be alone."
"Truly a flawless plan." CT mumbled. "Agreed, but let's search this island before we do anything; I mean, he could actually be wanting us thinking he's at those places while he is right under our noses the whole time." Shade insisted to everyone.
Some time went by, searching
Finale, part 4The drive to Mistralton was short and quiet for Shade and Glade; When everyone met at the airport, it wasn't any easier for Glade since he saw Nico, thinking that he didn't want him to come along. He thought that it would be better once they landed in Vermilion.
During the flight, Shade tried breaking the ice to Glade, still feeling embarrassed about earlier. "Well, this is our first time, going to Kanto." Shade said, with Glade nodding yes, trying his best not to look at Nico and CT who were on the other side of the aisle. "Something wrong?" Shade asked. "Shade... you know, I was thinking." Glade replied quietly.
"What if mom was right?"
"Are you really gonna make me say it?!" Glade's face was starting to blush again.
"I know, I know; there's nothing wrong about that; I mean, no one's going to judge you on your decisions."
"But what if it's too soon or too late? I mean, you haven't been interested in anyone for Arceus knows how long, so how would you even know?"
Finale, part 3"Hey, Shade..it's...it's Nick..I mean...obviously. Who else would it be? But I um...I mean...uh..." Nico stuttered. He didn't want to get anybody else involved in this, but if Elvis was going after everybody who was there, he felt he should know. And he certainly didn't want anything to happen, to Glade. "Shade..." Nico sighed. "You remember back in Hoenn, that guy who summoned Giratina...Elvis. He's..well...at least we think he's in Kanto. The Sevii Islands, specifically. He's...well, Shii's baited both Musashi and me, and maybe Ahti, too. Has anything weird been going on? If you're involved, you might want to come to Kanto, with us. Musashi thinks he might hurt your mom and Glade, if you don't."
" I knew that guy was going get out of the Distortion world, that son of a...." Shade muttered almost off a sudden before realizing Nico didn't know about what happened in Snowpoint a few months ago. "... Anyway, well, nothing really strange happened other than the retirement party yesterday,
Finale, part 2Slateport City, Hoenn: Four days ago.
Life was going as normal, for Ahti. Fishing in the harbor, raising two teenage girls, one of whom went to summer classes at Musashi's dojo.
"Beautiful day, isn't it?" Ahti said to the other man on the boat, as he inhaled the ocean air. The other man didn't respond. He was just leaning back in his seat, as the boat sailed forward to deeper sea. Ahti looked back at his new partner, to see him once again wearing those infernal earphones.
A smirk grew across Ahti's face, as he made the boat take a sharp turn, splashing the other man with a wave. "Aw, come on, Ahti!" he sputtered, taking the buds out of his ears. He was a young man, most likely in his late teens or very early twenty's. "You kids, these days. Always listening to your music, instead of working. I tried some of Clementine's and Kai's music, once. I had no idea what they were singing about!" Ahti said, with a chuckle.
"I guess you're not an Elvis fan, then." the young man laughed. Ah
Finale, part 1Quiet. Things had grown quiet, settled down. There was still tension between humans and Pokemon hybrids, but things weren't quite as hectic as they were just a year ago.
It was indeed, quiet.
Except for the gentle crashing of waves, against the soft, sandy shore.
"Beautiful, aren't they?" Elvis muttered, gazing at the trio of birds flying across the horizon. The Sevii Islands were home to many legendary Pokemon, and Arcticuno, Zapdos, and Moltres could often be seen flying through the evening sky. "Of course, I wouldn't expect you to comprehend such a majesty." he said, turning to Shii, who only responded with a snarl. It was answered by another snarl, one made by the creature standing next to Elvis: A large, cat-like creature. She had fur of black and burnt orange, bones adorned her back and shoulders and horns curled along the back of her head. She was Artemis, the now-grown Luxray-Houndoom fusion. She and Shii often competed for Elvis' attention. "Is it ready?" Elvis spoke up, break
