~~Castle Blossom~~

[Within the princess' audience chamber of Castle Blossom, Safiri has just finished speaking with Kutzu about Celebi. Rilia and Slianna are getting to know Susie and Helena. Celebi, after having greeted everyone, speaks with Cruce.]
...
Cruce: Hey... [Notices that Celebi's head is lowered. She leans down, looking up at Celebi's face.] What's the matter, Cel?
Celebi: [Shrugs.] ...Oh, I don't know... Only one of the nicest Eclipses is about to learn that I've gone bad... [Turns away slightly.]
Cruce: ... [Stands straight up.] Well I'd hardly say you've gone bad...
Celebi: What would you say...?
Cruce: Hm... I'd say you're a significant figure in this whole deal. C'mon... You have Light and Darkness at your control, it just seems like you don't. Those two sides are watching you...
Celebi: ...So, whatever I do affects them...?
Cruce: Exactly! They know stuff... they won't tell you what it is, but they know it. Honestly, I don't even know what it is, but if you're technically me, then you've got a past that Light and Darkness just want to bribe you with. They think that by lying to you, you'll join them... Why do they want you? Well, you must be powerful as hell!
Celebi: ...[Raises her head.] ...
Cruce: I know you might think I'm lying to you also, but... I am you... I'm not Light or Darkness, but Grayness.
Celebi: [She folds both hands on her heart.] ... Cruce, is there really such a thing as Grayness...?
Cruce: [Crosses her arms.] I've been asked that before... Hm, how funny that I'd hear it here... Grayness is not necessarily as Light or Darkness would call "official", but it's there... there's not true element of Grayness... if there was, all that lightning I use would be gray, right? Instead, no. I'm based around Darkness, though I don't follow that path.
Celebi: ...[Smiles at Cruce.] (Cruce... I so desperately want to see your world.) ...Could I...?
Cruce: Hm? What's that, Cel?
Celebi: [Speaks softly with a small smile on her face.] Oh... Oh, nothing, I'm just mumbling. [She turns to the Eclipses...]
...
Kutzu: [Struck down emotionally.] Chris is... working for Naught...?
Safiri: I'm afraid so... But... he's doing this to save his world! I'm sure he'd never actually turn on Light!
...
Kutzu: ...Well, it doesn't matter. We are the Eclipses. It is totally our duty to watch our worlds, and watch Chris... to watch his own world.
Safiri: Yep! That's exactly it! We have to keep Chris focused on saving his realm from the Apocalypse.
Kutzu: ...But... Like, where do we start?
Safiri: We should... um... We...
...
Celebi: [Having overheard the conversation, she joins in.] We have to gather the Soul Spheres.
Cruce: [Nods.] (Good... get back on track.)
Kutzu: Huh? [Turns to Celebi.] But Ch--I mean... Celebi! How can we!? The other genders of Starfall Hemisphere totally each possess one...
Celebi: Well, you have one here, right?
Kutzu: Totally! But... Will the Fairy Princess let us use it?
Susie: [Heard her title.] Oh? Yes Kutzu?
Kutzu: [Ears flatten.] U-um... Like... We, um...
Susie: Gracious, you're giving me the look again... What is wrong, Dear?
Kutzu: We have a... a little idea.
Celebi: ...Maybe I should explain what's going on...
Rilia: Huh? [Turns around.] I think this is the big plan...
Helena: A plan, hmm?
Slianna: Celebi had told us about this, but it's best you hear this.
...
[Everyone gathers around in a circle...]
...
Celebi: Ok. I'm sure you know of the little Nightmare issue on your paws, right?
Susie: Oh, absolutely... They are endless.
Helena: Might you have a solution to ease our stress?
Celebi: 'Sure do, and what you're doing now is keeping them at bay... As I have mentioned, Lea is here, and so is a villainous dingo from Safa named Pryme. They grouped up and took down the Phaze Guardian Aren, and now they're after the Soul Spheres... ultimately, to reach the Blessed Garden.
[Kutzu, Helena, and Susie gasp...]
...
Celebi: It is trouble, I know... Listen, what I need from the Feminine is full cooperation on this plan... We need to gather the Soul Spheres before Lea and Pryme can.
Susie: Gracious, but--!...
Celebi: ...I'm... I'm sorry, Princess Susie... It means you must part with the Feminine's Soul Sphere...
Helena: Nonsense! We can gather the spheres here, can we not?
Celebi: It'd work... But what if Lea already has a couple, and that leaves some other and then this one? Then we're all in danger.
Helena: ...Oh, I see.... Hmmm...
Kutzu: Like, couldn't we allow them to capture three of the spheres, and then lure them away from the castle by taking it somewhere... not totally distant, but far?
Celebi: ....Kutzu, you know Lea's gonna neutralize virtually everyone just to get to the other three spheres...
Kutzu: ...He-he, so?
Helena: That would spare us so much hard work...
Celebi: Physically, true. But Lea's neutralization is powered by Darkness, and'll mind control everyone...
Kutzu: Like, bummer...
Susie: But that means that we would have to invade a territory and steal a most prized possession...
Celebi: Well... True, but what's worse: the loss of a Soul Sphere, or the loss of the Radial Sphere...?
...
Safiri: My planet has lost one of it's sacred power sources... It is truly horrible... If it isn't revived within a day, time within my homeland... will stop.
Kutzu: [Gasps.] ...Safiri...
Celebi: The citizens of the Oathlands... will be frozen in absolute paralysis... (So similar to the Pokémon World...) All growth ceases.
Slianna: [Shudders.] That would be dreadful... and it's already starting.
...
Celebi: So you see, we gotta do this!
...
Helena: Fairy Princess Susie... [Glances over at her... She is deep in thought.]
...
Susie: ...[Nods.] I understand. You may take the Soul Sphere.
Celebi: Really? Thank you, Princess!
Susie: Oh, gracious of course, Dear! If the situation is what you say it is, then come quickly! Kutzu, Helena. Stand guard. I apologize, but I cannot permit anyone else to lay their eyes upon the secrets of my ancestors.
Rilia: We understand.
Slianna: Sure!
Cruce: [Nods.] (Hmm... so the Soul Spheres are more hidden away in this world... that's good, I suppose.)
Susie: Thank you.
...
[Susie makes her way to a decorated pattern on the furthest side of the room. Celebi follows her.]
Susie: [Closes her eyes.] Please, everyone... Close your eyes...
...
[They do as she says.]
...
Susie: [Inhales... exhales... She waves her arm in a strange, uninterpreted motion... With each motion, the symbol on the wall lights up... each time, it pulses a different color... after merely 10 seconds, a bright light envelops everyone... The wall vanishes, revealing a secret passage that leads upward, possibly into the highest tower of the castle...] Come quickly!
Celebi; [Unshields her eyes.] Right!
[The two of them dash into a large, circular room that's completely empty, but radically tall. At first view, it is a dead end.]
~~Halo Pillar...~~
Susie: [Looks up.] The transporter rests at the very top of this sacred hall...]
Celebi: All up from here?
Susie: Correct. Let's fly!
[They both take flight at full speed. The wall re-solidifies behind them... It is then that the rest of the group opens their eyes...]
...
[Within a minute, they reach the top ledge.]
Celebi: Wow... Princess, this is incredible...
Susie: This is but the beginning. [She turns around, facing another symbol. This one is on the ground, and is much more complex than the last... Waving her arm, she speaks as if she were in a trance.] Sacred Uhalo, grant us passage into your garden of souls...
...
Celebi: (Uhalo...? Haven't I heard that name before? ...)
[The symbol becomes luminous...]
Susie: Let's go!
[The two step on this symbol... Within seconds, they are gone. It had acted as a teleporter... Now they are within a chamber hidden deep beneath the castle...]
...
~~Halo Shrine...~~
[Deep underground, the Halo Shrine is the source of the Soul Sphere. It grants the Fairytale Lands the power it needs to flourish as a major section of the Starfall Hemisphere. This area is adorn with ruby colored crystals protruding from the entire cave. The entire shrine is glowing a bright pink from the center.]
...
Susie: [She walks to the center of the cave, and up the shrine. Celebi follows.] This is the secret of my ancestors... Only once has this ancient object been removed... By my mother... It had ensued catastrophically...
Celebi: [Blinks nervously.] What did it do?
Susie: It had merged our world with another... The race of chao had split into a complex race, and a simple race... Supposedly, the Soul Sphere has reacted to something known as... a Chaos Emerald.
Celebi: (Chaos Emerald!?! So THAT'S why advanced chao can reside on Mobius! Hero, dark, any type! ...) ...Oh... Susie, is everything going to be alright?
Susie: Gracious, I hope so... This is for our future... [Standing on one side of the Soul Sphere's post, she looks into the it... It is a pale red sphere with peculiar pattern inscribed into it... However... something has gone awry.] Gracious... What is this?
Celebi: The Soul Sphere's never did that in the past, did they?
[The object appears to be flickering, as if it were losing power... perhaps this is the case.]
Susie: ...[Grabs the Soul Sphere gently with both paws. It continues to flicker.] ...T-this must be the work of evil.
Celebi: I've... I've never known that to happen. Maybe that really is Darkness' doing... (...They've messed with the power sources before, but nothing like this ever happened. The power sources didn't flicker or change in any way...)
Susie: Hmm... For now, it seems safe...
Celebi: That's good to know... May I ask, how do we get back?
Susie: That's easy, Dear! From this point, I can undo the teleportating we had taken just by my thoughts. Prepare yourself to return!
Celebi: Gotcha.
...
Susie: [Closes her eyes... Within seconds, they are back in the audience chamber. Safiri, Slianna, and Rilia are shocked at how quick this was. Kutzu and Helena simply smile upon their return and perform curtsies. Cruce is immediately intrigued by the flickering of the Soul Sphere.]
Cruce: ...That flickering... that's not normal at all.
Kutzu: ...Like, oh my gosh! [He notices.] It totally is blinking!
Helena: What is this trickery?!
Susie: Dears, I wish I knew... perhaps it is Darkness.
Celebi: That's our best assumption for now.
...
Safiri: ...You two...
[He captures Slianna's and Rilia's attention.]
Safiri: That blinking's familiar isn't it?
Slianna: What do you... oh... That's right!
Rilia: Mhm. It was when we were rising up the Ancient Growth... the light that warped us began flickering, and we fell!
Safiri: That's exactly it... Darkness has to be doing this.
...
Susie: [Holding the Soul Sphere tightly, she frowns.]
Cruce: So this Soul Sphere is in danger.
Celebi: Yes. One of the four that are sought after by Lea and Pryme.
Kutzu: And totally one they won't get!
Susie: ...[With a stern look in her eyes, she holds the sphere out to Celebi.]
Celebi: [Gasps lightly.] You trust me with it...?
Susie: Of course. You've saved our world before. I have no doubt in my mind that you'll lead us to a bright future.
Celebi: [Smiling, she takes the Soul Sphere carefully.] Thank you, Fairy Princess...
Susie: And now. Helena. This is the moment you and I come in. The orders must continue their work with more effort than every before...
[Just then, a frantic chao rushes in. She is panting...]
Helena: Well now! Such haste! What brings you to the Royal Chambers!?
Feminine Reporter: It's... It's Commander Mark and an elite Male Squadron! They're headed here! They've managed to pass... to pass the Order of the Warm Hearted unbiased on direction... They're hostile!!
Susie: What!? Gracious!! What is that Mark thinking with such a direct approach!? He'll get himself neutralized!
Kutzu: We're unarmed...
Susie: ...Hmph! [She dashes to a small storage closet and grabs a few pieces of equipment for Kutzu and anyone else. Coming out with two neutralizer projectiles, she nods to Kutzu.] Take this, Kutzu! [Tosses the neutralizer to Kutzu.]
Cruce: Mark? As in the boy Mark? Ha! I'm used to seeing him as another Fairy Princess in my dimension.
Susie: Gracious, what?!
Helena: You say he is neutralized in--...
[Susie and Helena look at each other, estranged.]
Susie & Helena: [Turn to Cruce.] You're from another dimension!?
Kutzu: [He catches the weapon and blinks, looking at Cruce again.] (So... something was bugging me about her... this Cruce person...) [Aloud.] Right. It's totally time to kick some butt!
Susie: [Looking at Rilia. She tosses the neutralizer to her and grabs something else quickly.]
Rilia: Huh? Whoa! [Unexpectedly catches the weapon and examines it.]
Susie: [Grabs clothes similar to Kutzu's and hands them to Rilia.] I'm entrusting you... Go with Kutzu.
Rilia: [Curious at first. She then nods.]
Kutzu: Come on! I'll show you how the neutralizer works on the way down.
Rilia: Okay! Right behind you!
Celebi: I'll guard the Soul Sphere... Nothing can get passed me...
Susie: I'm counting on you... I know you can do it. Helena! Come with me! We have to gather as many fairy troops as we can!
Helena: I understand!
[The two dash out of the room, leaving Slianna, Safiri, Celebi, and Cruce...]
...
Safiri: Celebi! What do we do!? What's going on!?
Celebi: ...The only thing we can do is defend this no matter what... [Holds the sphere up.]
Safiri: ...[Nods.] Ok. I'm willing to do that!
Slianna: Me too!
...
...
...
[At the gates...]
[Rilia, now dressed like Kutzu, wields her weapon firmly, a bit nervous.]
Kutzu: You'll be fine... If it gets bad, run...
Rilia: But I can't just leave you! I won't!
Kutzu: [Smirks.] ...'Hope you can keep that valor in the face of the Commander-in-chief...
...
[A group can be made out in the distance, charging full speed at the castle. A banner can be seen.]
...
Rilia: [Shaking, she tries to look confident.]
Kutzu: [Watching this approach. He gulps...] ...
[About 5 more fairy soldiers, fully armed with a short range of weaponry, join the two. But there are far more than seven Masculine Soldiers charging at them. The fairies' weaponry ranged from projectiles to strange looking beam swords and daggers.]
...
Kutzu: [Glaring.] ...Mark... What possessed you to come this far...?
...
[Yells can be heard coming from the large squadron.]
...
[They are coming closer...]
...
[Not very far anymore...]
Kutzu: Everyone, ready the projectiles!
[They do as Kutzu says, aiming forward. Those with combat weaponry stand in front, having the most armor...]
...
[Mark is leading this group. He is a dark blue wolf chao with a black mohawk. He is wearing military camo attire that has multiple straps of various small weaponry upon it. He is also wearing a long headband. He wields two beam swords. The rest of his squadron is also dressed in camo.]
...
[Now the two groups are face to face... The Masculine slowy approach, scoffing at the small force...]
...
Kutzu: Mark... [Growls.]
Mark: Tch... Kutzu, Kutzu, Kutzu... [Shakes his head.] Little wimpy girlie boy. So like the Feminine to throw you out here in my face... Oh, and check this out, dudes! [Refering to Rilia.] Kutz's got himself a freak for a friend! Where the hell's your symbol!?
[They all laugh.]
...
Rilia: What...?
Kutzu: You shut up, Mark! You're pretty stupid to come here with such a small force!
Mark: Tch, keep talkin'! Dude, we'll tear this waste of space down with this raid...
Kutzu: But why!?
Mark: Um, DUH! Why the hell else!? We don't need some "pretty fairy castle" in our way, 'kay!?
Kutzu: Grrr, NO! It's not that! You're not telling me the truth!
...
Mark: ...You wanna know the truth, eh?
...
Mark: Well... If I am gonna fall here, I'd much rather prefer that then by the paws of...
...
Kutzu: ...Who!? Who else!?
Mark: Lea...
Kutzu: Huh!? [Steps back.]
...
Mark: You heard me! Lea did a number on our... on our base of operations... There, there's the truth. Happy now!?
...
Kutzu:... But why come here?
Mark: This is our last stand! GAH!! You DON'T get it! We lost EVERYTHING! We lost our home, most of the army to Lea herself, and... our Soul Sphere... So guess what!? We're taking yours!
Kutzu: You... lost your power source...? ...
Rilia: [Quietly.] I know how you feel.
Mark: What? How could you freaking know what it's like!?
...
Kutzu: Mark, I will NOT let you take our home! I'll totally take you down here!
Mark: Right! We'll see about that!!
...
...
...
[Meanwhile...]

THE POKEMON WORLD
~~Drenched Bluff~~

[Team Kross, with Adam and Al, faces one of the Nightmare Alphas, which appears to be weak against water. Little does Team Kross know that Nightmares weak against a certain element are, as well, lethal against it...]
Al: [Trembling. Backing away.]
Nightmare Alpha: Again, such a tremulous appearance... I can just taste your fear...
Adam: [Having not expected this, he backs up with Al.]
Nightmare Alpha: Enough of this stalling! Hrah! [Swings one of his axes. The air behind the axe chemically transforms into water, and is shot in the form of a streak at Adam, obeying the motion of the axe. It impacts Adam roughly, throwing him back.] ...
Al: Adam!!
Adam: ...Erg... [Pulls himself up.]
Nightmare Alpha: No moment... [Hurls his axe at Adam, who manages to blow fire at the weapon, retaliating the attack. Adam's defense is foreseen. The axe explodes into a watery splash, pounding Adam with pressure. It sends him against the wall.] to breathe... [Using his other axe, he smashes the ground, creating a small dark vortex that the stream of water following seeps into. The same vortex appears underneath the weakened Adam, and spits water upward like a geyser, throwing Adam at the roof of the bluff roughly. He plummets to the soaked ground, landing in a deep puddle...]
Al: Whaa! Adam!! [Rushes to Adam.]
...[The axes rematerialize in the Nightmare's devilish hands. He spins with both axes forward, unleashing a powerful jet of water that knocks Al aside just from the pressure.].
Al: Agh!!
Adam: Erf... [Breathing heavily.] ...[Falls unconscious.]
Al: No... Adam... I... I can't do this alone... Urgh. [Since the Nightmare's water moves are empowered by Darkness, they are lethal to both Al and Adam.]
Nightmare Alpha: Inept, truly... You had led me to believe that you were any sort of significant...
Al: Urgh... I can't... [His legs are infirm.]
Nightmare Alpha: Now to drop the curtains... [Charges.] like a guillotine.
Al: ...[Closes his eyes.]
Equinox: Chaos... Control!! [Appears in front of the Nightmare and forces him back. Having been unprepared, the Nightmare is unable to phase through this move in time. Equinox lands in front of Al, prepared to fight.]
Al: Huh...? [Looks up.] Equinox...?
Equinox: Be intrepid, Al. I will assist you. Chaos Element! [She raises one arm, interdicting the puddles of water to rise and form into one sphere that is sent forth. It plows through the Nightmare Alpha, who explodes into a splash...] ...
Nightmare Alpha: [Reforms behind Al, ready to strike. Luckily, Al had anticipated this out of pure abhorrence. He spins around and blows a quick Water Gun at the Nightmare, atomizing the Nightmare into nothingness...]
Nightmare Alpha: [From nowhere...] If you cannot fend for yourselves, then I have no intention of wasting time with you.
...
Al: ...[Shakes his head... He gasps.] Adam! [Rushes to Adam's side.] ...
Equinox: [Walks to Al.] Hmm... He is out cold. I lack knowledge of the extent of his injuries.
Al: He was battered, and all I could do... was watch...
Equinox: ...We should return... I will get Adam.
...
[Al and Equinox do so, remembering Spoink's pearl as well... Treasure Town is not far, but twilight covers the skies...]
...
...
Equinox: [Walking with Adam in her arms.] Al... I want to inform you that your home... is in terrible danger...
Al: Wh-what?! But... why is that?
Equinox: The Nightmares... They have invaded the town while you were away... Your friends had managed to drive them away, but... I fear that is not the last of them... The one you faced was commanding this invasion, but I am uncertain whether these fiends have left your home...
Al: This is... this is getting out of hand! Everyone back at Treasure Town and Wigglytuff's Guild is okay, right?
Equinox: As I said, they managed to drive off the Nightmares, but that is all I know.
Al: ...But... I thought Chris would leave us in... a wake of assurance. I thought we would be okay...
Equinox: ...I'm sorry to say we remain at the bottom of the flight.
...
...
...
~~Treasure Town...~~
-The townsfolk are outside, searching for any Nightmares... Some of the guildmembers are also outside. Lucario is leading this. he spots Team Kross and Equinox immediately.-
...
Lucario: You have returned unscathed...
Equinox: Yes, I have... however, these two have not.
Al: I'll... I'll be fine. Adam needs to be taken care of... right away. [The corrupted water is taking a toll on Al's strength.]
Chatot: [Rushes to the group.] Oh my! Have our recruits been harmed!?
Al: Don't worry... we got... the pearl.
[Three other guildmembers join; this includes Chimecho, Corphish, and Sunflora.]
Corphish: Hey, hey, hey! You're alright! ...Are you?
Sunflora: Oh my gosh! Corphish, they look battered up!
Chimecho: Team Kross...
Al: Hey... we... Can we see... Spoink...?
...
[Al falls to the ground. The guildmembers gasp.]
Chatot: [Squawks.] Al! Hurry, bring them to the guild! Thank you for the assistance, Equinox!
Equinox: Of course...
[The guildmembers take Al and Adam into the guild...]
...
Lucario: ...They were faced with a powerful foe, weren't they...?
Equinox: Yes... It was unlike any Nightmare I have seen so far...
Lucario: This has gotten dire, but we cannot rely on our hopes...
Equinox: And that would be...?
Lucario: The return of Chris... and the recovery of Mew.
...
Equinox: I suppose... [Sighs... Her ears flicker at the sound of something truly unexpected... She spins around quickly.]
Lucario: Hmm? Who...?
...
[It is Elebi, Shadow, and Cream.]
...
Shadow: [Observing Equinox.] So... It's true... You have followed me here.
Equinox: Shadow... [Closes her eyes and chuckles.] I wasn't expecting to see you have become one of them...
Cream: Shadow... She's from...
Shadow: That's right... She is from our world.
Elebi: (So this is the town Grovyle spoke of... Something weird is going on here. I can feel it.)
Carbuncle: (That is Darkness... It is near... Be ready, Elicia.)
Elebi: ...Hmm... Things look a bit uneasy around here.
Lucario: You... Who are you? I have seen one to your exact shape.
Elebi: You have...? [Surprised.] M-my name is Elicia...
Equinox: Elicia...? [Curious...]
[Some of the townsfolk turn to see the outsiders.]
Lucario: It is with no doubt... You look so much like him...
Elebi: Wh-who do I look like? (Is it who I'm thinking...?)
Lucario: His name is Chris...
Elebi: [Gasps.] ... I knew it... My brother...
Lucario: He is your brother!?... I hadn't known he had a sister...
Elebi: Aww, he didn't tell anyone about me...? Ooh! He's so bemused!!
Equinox: You say your brother's name is Chris, correct?
Elebi: That's right.
Equinox: ...I believe I have heard that name somewhere...
Shadow: Equinox... How did you get here? And how did you maintain your form?
Equinox: A being used a type of magic to teleport us here. It was not the strange creature that had been the instigator of previous difficulty.
Lucario: It was Palkia, the spacial Pokemon... I can infer that you are from Mobius. Am I correct?
Cream: Yup! You're right! How'd you know?
Shadow: How did you know?
Lucario: I had ventured alongside Chris very recently to stop an evil Pokemon known as Mewtwo from defiling the worlds.
Elebi: [Gasps.] So you know where he is!?
Lucario: ...I am sorry to say that I do not know of where he is...
Elebi: Aww... (I thought he was here, Carbuncle!)
Carbuncle: (It would seem I was incorrect... Elicia, please accept my apologies... Chris has leaped off into distant worlds... But have hope. The Eclipses shall tell us of his whereabouts!)
Elebi: (The Eclipses... I'm sensing one... One's presence is very near... Another's is less near... And the last is faint.)
Carbuncle: (I am proud of you. You have managed to ease yourself with the Eclipses.)
...
Equinox: Now... I know who Chris is. Now I remember.
Elebi: Hmm?
Equinox: Yes... He was the one I had sensed a unique presence of... A disturbance... And the feeling abides even here... The very same.
Shadow: Could this be similar to the presence we share?
Equinox: ...No... They are different. One is clear... The other is so complex... It's like a calling.
Elebi: (A calling... That feels like this sense I've had for the past moments now...)
Equinox: Perhaps... [Turns to Elebi.] Perhaps it's you... Elicia.
Elebi: [Curious. She tilts her head a points to herself.] Me?
Lucario: I believe I've adapted to this terminology in the midst of such a presence... Chris had connections to few individuals, wielding power, who were known as the Eclipses.
Equinox: The Eclipses... Ah, that is just it!
Elebi: Eclipse... Yes, it is!
Shadow: Equinox the Fox of the Night... [Chuckles.] It sounds like an Eclipse, doesn't it?
Elebi: [Gasps... She turns her head slowly to Equinox.] (Carbuncle... She's an Eclipse.)
Carbuncle: ...(Indeed... Well done. You have identified the very first Eclipse.)
Equinox: Hmhmm. It was the right choice to bring myself to this world...
Lucario: So... This journey has only begun...
...
...
...
-The group, assured that no more Nightmares will disturb them for the time being, situates themselves... Lucario brings everyone to a secret housing called Sharpedo Bluff at the edge of town... This is where Mew is resting...-
...
~~Sharpedo Bluff...~~
...
[Lucario and Elebi are the two to descend into the hidden shelter and greet Mew, who has not yet waken up.]
Lucario: Poor fellow... He had fought bravely...
Elebi: Aw, what happened to the little guy?
Lucario: Mew... was with Chris when this took place... He had battled Mewtwo for the safety of this world... Unluckily, he sustained serious damage in the fight, despite the victory.
Elebi: ...He is an Eclipse, too... Isn't he?
Lucario: ...[Turns to Mew...] Yes...
...
[Lucario turns to Elebi, another question on his mind.]
Lucario: [In his own words.] Elicia...
Elebi: Yes? [She turns to Lucario, sensing something wrong.]
Lucario: ...Your brother, Chris... he was a most unusual figure... but there was another who found his way by your brother's side...
Elebi: Wh...What...?
Lucario: ...[Closes his eyes.] A human who looked most like Chris, as I have heard...
Elebi: I... I only have one human brother. I do have... h-had... two other brothers... but they weren't human. Who are we talking about, Lucario?
Lucario: [Returns to speaking through telepathy.] A very powerful boy... I believe his name is Cruce Ifai.
Elebi: ...Cruce... Ifai... [She shudders...]
...
...
...
[They regroup with Shadow, Cream, and Equinox.]
...
Lucario: He is still resting...
Equinox: I never would have thought another Eclipse was so... adjacent.
Lucario: ...Hmm...
Elebi: Is something wrong, Lucario?
Lucario: I am only wondering if those upon Mobius are suffering the same ordeals... If I recall, Tails had suffered the same injuries that Mew had.
Cream: [Gasps quickly.] Tails!
Shadow: Tails was an Eclipse? ...Hm...
Lucario: And their hero, Sonic the Hedgehog had been transformed into a Pokemon I have not yet laid my eyes upon... Along with a loss of memory.
Cream: Oh no!! Not Sonic too...
Shadow: Hmph. I knew it was a matter of time before his confidence got the best of him...
Equinox: I know of one much like him, Shadow.
Shadow: [Smirks.] Is that so?
Equinox: [Chuckles.]
Elebi: ...So I guess we'll have to wait out the troubles?
Lucario: The heroes have played their part for now...
Young, Assuming Voice: Or have they...?
[Everyone turns around. Who they see is the rare, unique heroic Pokemon. Sky Shaymin.]
Skyelord: Leo Avenger Skyelord is here to save the day!
--To Be Continued...--
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Twoooooo Skyelords.
Remember, there are TWO DIFFERENT Skyelords in Blast.
One's all serious and the other's all... not... serious... oO
