Aron
Let's grab that thing.



Dunsparce
N-no, wait!


Dunsparce tries to stop Aron but can't move after the battle. Aron grabs the device.



Dunsparce
Please... stop!


Aron turns at Dunsparce's call, but it seems that call was not meant for him. Dunsparce is calling into the air.



Dunsparce
What's happening to me?


Dunsparce is partially transparent and fading quickly.
Nobody says anything.

Dunsparce continues to fade away.


Dunsparce
What is happening? Did you do this?



Aron
N-no... I-



Dunsparce
FIX IT! I can't move!



Aron
I don't know how to do that...



Dunsparce
No...



Dunsparce
This can't be happening. I don't want to fade away! I haven't even been-


Everyone is too shocked to speak. The pure strangeness of what just happened has left everyone stunned.





Some time passes.

???
Why, hello there!



Tepig
Another one...?


A wide icy blue figure lumbers down the path towards them. It seems to be moving in haste, although it is moving quite slowly.


Swinub
Master!



Avalugg
Ah, it is you!



Avalugg
I made it here as fast as I could. Are you all right? I heard screaming.



Aron
Y-yes, we're fine.



Swinub
This is the group that fulfilled my rescue request.



Avalugg
Did you find everything we needed from the shops in Tempest Town?



Swinub
I sure did!


Avalugg swoops down to the closest approximation of a bow possible by a giant block of ice.



Avalugg
Excellent! Thank you for making the trip.


Avalugg turns to the rest of the group.



Avalugg
Even up in the mountains, news of new rescue teams reaches my ears quite quickly.



Avalugg
I must confess that I asked Swinub to make his rescue request specifically to your rescue team.



Avalugg
At the top of Cardinal Mountain is a town populated mainly by ice Pokémon.



Avalugg
One Pokémon in that town has asked to see you.



Avalugg
A gift for you is also waiting for you there, as a reward for completing your mission.



Tepig
Excuse me?



Avalugg
Yes? Please speak your mind.



Tepig
Sorry for interrupting you, but it's getting dark and we've had a very long day.



Tepig
Our friends must be waiting for us back in town.



Tepig
Can we do this tomorrow?



Avalugg
...



Avalugg
Of course! My apologies for being so insensitive.



Avalugg
When you wish to visit, speak to the Abra in the town square. Our gates are always open for you!



Avalugg
I'll have someone there shortly to deliver your reward as well.


Avalugg almost-bows again.



Avalugg
We must be off to deliver these items to town. Thank you again for your assistance.


Avalugg lowers himself to the ground so that Swinub can crawl on his back, then they very slowly make their way up the path.

Rocky, Ultima, Aron, and Tepig return to town.
Rocky is silently traumatized, standing still as a literal rock and staring blankly into the middle distance.

Rocky, Ultima, Aron, and Tepig make the journey back home silently.

They don't make it back until well after nightfall.

Torches line the shopping square a safe distance from all the shop stands. Lit softly with a soft orange glow, the agency building--in stark contrast to when they first saw it--seems idyllic and welcoming.

In the square, Turtwig is talking with the purple Kecleon brother, who is packing up goods to close; all the other shops are already closed for the night. Sandile is playing with her Tempest Town doppelgänger.



Sandile
Welcome back, guys! We got a new recruit already!



Sandile
Hey, that was my line!


Both Sandile look at each other awkwardly.



Sandile & Sandile
Hahaha!


Turtwig notices the commotion and leaves Kecleon to finish his packing.



Turtwig
Oh, you're back!



Turtwig
A Sneasel came by earlier with the reward for your mission.



Turtwig
We're Silver Rank already! Can you believe it?



Turtwig
Let's remember to talk to Pelipper tomorrow to claim the rewards.



Turtwig
Oh! Turtwig, here!


Aron digs through Team 2's bag for a solid few seconds and pulls out the Everstone.



Turtwig
Look at what I found!



Turtwig
Did you pick this up for me? You're so nice! Thank you!


Turtwig and Aron bonk their heads together.



Turtwig
Ah... that was a bad idea. I already have a headache.



Aron
Oh, sorry.



Turtwig
The others are already sleeping. It's been a tiring day.



Turtwig
Let's go join them. You can introduce yourself to Skrelp tomorrow.



Tepig
Skrelp?


Sandile waves goodbye to her doppelgänger and breaks off.



Sandile
He's the new recruit. Espeon's team recruited him from Vast Marsh.



Sandile
We should sleep. It's getting late.



The group ducks into the agency building, into the walled-off room to their beds. Circled around the smouldering remains of a fire in their straw piles, Rocky, Ultima, Aron, Tepig, Sandile, and Turtwig drift off to sleep. Turtwig takes a bit longer than the others.
Turtwig tosses and turns in his sleep.

Memories of a past conversation flicker in and out of his dreams.


Turtwig
...berries...


Aron gets up from Turtwig's side and wakes up Noibat. Noibat rubs her eyes.



Aron
It's happening again. With Turtwig.



Noibat
Right.



Aron
I tried to wake Espeon up, but he's out like a light. Must have had a busy day yesterday.


Aron returns to his post. Noibat flies over to Turtwig's other side.


Turtwig
...you mean...


Turtwig
...village?


Turtwig
*ugh*



Turtwig
WAAAAAH!



Turtwig
Ugh, my head!



Turtwig
Sorry if I woke you guys up.



Noibat
There's nothing to worry about. Everything's alright.



Aron
Just go back to sleep. We're here for you.



Turtwig
Thank you.


Turtwig lays back down, and after some adjustments, goes back to sleep.

After a while, Noibat falls asleep. Sandile and Azurill also sleep on the ground nearby.
Xewi, Rocky, Mander, and Ultima wake up and stretch.



Sandile
Oh, you're up! Good morning!


They exit into the main room of the building, where Turtwig lies on a straw bed. Aron and Espeon are talking nearby.



Espeon
Good morning, everyone.



Espeon
Turtwig has a nasty headache, so he won't be doing anything today.



Espeon
I'm taking care of it as best I can, but I need to get some medicine.



Espeon
I'll be right back, Aron.



Aron
Okay.



Espeon
Off you all go too. Turtwig needs his rest.


Espeon leaves the building into the square. Xewi, Rocky, Mander, Ultima, and Sandile follow.








♪♫ Tempest Town ♪♫

Everyone exits into the square. It's another bustling, busy day.

There's a commotion near the rescue board. Tepig waves to everyone.



Tepig
You guys! Come over here!



As they approach, they notice the rough shape of the rescue board. Rescue requests, tattered and illegible, litter the ground around them. The board itself leans back slightly as if someone attempted to knock it over, and it covered with pawprints and glyphs from head to toe.



Sandile
What? Who would vandalize the rescue board like this? This is a vital resource!



Tepig
If you look closely, it says "Team Rude was here", but they can't spell. The glyphs are all wrong.



Tepig
They even identified themselves. Here it says "Pawniard" and in this corner it says "Chimchar".



Tepig
It doesn't look like we'll be doing any missions today.



Sandile
Let's check out the shops and talk to Pokémon. Maybe we can get more info.

Rocky stares blankly into the middle distance again for a good while, unable to think at all without the autopilot of following the others to lead her way.

After a while, she starts mumbling to herself.



Rocky
So, um, nobody is going to talk about what happened? I mean... did that pokemon die? I... Don't want to be... I mean, at least I have a place to sleep, but... I can't even fight, and I didn't want to kill, and...

Rocky
I'm going to let everyone down no matter what I do. I mean, crumpets, I... I let tepig down so many times on that mission! And why is team rude so mad. And I don't really know anyone do I. I only remember two days.

Rocky
How can I trust them? I... I shouldn't trust them. I should... I'd be better off on my own, really. Where I know I can't hurt anyone else, and they can't hurt me either. I should just run away. I mean...

Rocky
I have no memories, no idea who I even am, and the first people I find tell me to go into these dungeons and fight... Some mysterious voice telling me to be a hero! That's!

Rocky
How dare they put all of that pressure on me! I...



Rocky
Ugh, what am I even saying. I really am useless. I can't do anything. I don't even have the guts to run away from these total strangers.

Sandile
Wait, what?!



Sandile
Woah woah woah, rewind a little here! What did you guys do yesterday?



Tepig
Oh, that's right. Almost everyone was asleep when we got back, so we didn't have a chance to say anything.


Tepig recalls the story of the last few floors of Frosty Forest and the encounters with Dunsparce and Avalugg.






Sandile
Wow, I wish I could be bigger. That'd make everything so much easier.



Sandile
So what happened? Did Dunsparce... die?



Tepig
I don't think so. Maybe they teleported? Or got called away by another Pokémon?



Sandile
Maybe a psychic-type Pokémon was involved?



Tepig
Either way, none of our attacks can make any Pokémon disappear like that.



Tepig
I think it had something to do with the device. Dunsparce was mashing on it and it caused tremors.



Tepig
Not sure what that thing is supposed to do, but it's dangerous. Aron picked it up.



Tepig
He should still have it right now. It's safe with him; he won't mess with it or show it to other Pokémon.


Rocky
Oh, um... You heard all of that, huh? Ah Fish Fritters. I uh, didn't even... See you there. Although I suppose I was just... Staring blankly.


Rocky
I really hope that Dunsparce is okay. W-whatever happened there... was... Really scary.


Ultima
(sigh)




Ultima
I think I'll just go to the beach...
Layout by Mathos


Rocky
Sorry, I guess I'm just being annoying. I'll... I'll try and make myself useful and pick up the rewards for you.


Rocky heads to the Peliper Post Office to claim the rewards from the last adventure and maybe talk to Peliper too.
♪♫ Tempest Town ♪♫





Xewi leaves the rescue board and finds Azurill standing nearby Salamence's stall.



Azurill
Good morning, Xewi.



Azurill
I'm really worried about Turtwig. He didn't have any headache when we were out yesterday on our missions.



Azurill
It came on very suddenly. But Espeon says it will be fine with time, and I trust him.


Do you want to hang out with Azurill?








Ultima heads to the beach. Tepig passes him on the way down.

It's another warm day, but few Pokémon can be found playing in the waves. Seems the vandalism of the rescue board is affecting the town more than expected.

Rocky meekly excuses herself from the group and goes to Pelipper Post Office.



Pelipper
Welcome back!



Pelipper
Congratulations on reach Silver rank! Your rewards are waiting for you, alongside your rescue mission rewards.



Pelipper
Surely you've noticed the rescue board by now. The Explorer's Society was... not pleased to find that out.



Pelipper
They're offering 300 and 50 rescue team points to anyone who can locate and capture those responsible.



Pelipper
If you have any leads, please share them with me. I'll help you however I can.









Mander stays behind at the rescue board with Sandile.



Sandile
Rocky is too hard on herself.



Sandile
I didn't hear everything she was mumbling, but she sure does have a lot on her plate.



Sandile
I'm sure we'll figure out why she lost her memory soon if we keep looking.


Do you want to hang out with Sandile?
