Tribel had not only been discovered, but one of the best friends had been hurt.  She turned back to face Delano, but found that he was no longer there - even though he had been there just moments before.  Where had he gone?
* * *
Delano emerged from the shadows inside the Tracker facility, and ran down one of the hallways.  His shadow rose against the wall nearby, and it grew glowing green eyes and a monsterlike shape.  "Very clever, bringing attention to that other human like that," rasped the shadow, spots of green and purple floating in its swirling eyes.  "Though I must question why you left Crawdaunt behind all the same.  He will be terribly outnumbered."

"He is serving a purpose, and he is very strong," answered Delano as he approached a set of double-doors with the words GENERATOR ROOM written at the top.  "I will collect him after we are done here.  I intend to draw out only the strongest Tracker...the one who is responsible for the way I am now."

Delano put out a hand to the crack between the doors, and he suddenly became two-dimensional and shadowy.  He slipped between the cracks and entered into the generator room.  Though it was designed to receive backup power from Electric Pokemon in case of an emergency, there was no one this deep inside the base now.  A perfect opportunity.

He picked out another Pokeball and threw it.  Out sprang Houndoom, who howled with a bone-chilling noise that rattled through the room.  "Houndoom, Flamethrower," ordered Delano.

Though the generator equipment was designed to withstand some sabotage, it wasn't really meant to be attacked head-on - and the Houndoom sustained its flames long enough to overheat and melt vital equipment in the technology-bound room.  Soon enough, warning sirens added to the cacophony in upper levels of the facility.

"Oh no!" cried the nurse as power was lost to the medical wing.  "Quickly, get the backup generators working!"

Fortunately, the Tracker HQ was more than well-prepared to ensure that the important medical equipment was kept functioning.  A few loyal Voltorb provided power in that section of the facility, but they weren't enough to provide energy for the rest of the complex - more Electric Pokemon would be needed for that.

Delano recalled Houndoom, then stepped into the shadows once again.  "My murderer won't be able to ignore this...I'll find him soon enough."
* * *
Crawdaunt wasn't particularly smart, but it knew it had been deployed for a reason, and it wasn't about to fail its master.  With a ferocious gurgle, it lashed out at the Tyranitar with a claw glowing with aquatic energy - Crabhammer.

Wylde's face grew grim as the lights flickered and went out,limited-power red emergency lights coming on as sand whipped up around the arena due to Tyranitar's special ability.  Hayrum zipped up his jacket to protect his body and, covering his mouth, looked to his Metang, which....seemed to be taking it all in stride, really.  "Rexitar!  At these quarters...counter with Thunder Fang!  Coppersmith!  Get to the generators and find out what happened!"  The aquatic glow would be joined by a fearsome electric-yellow one as the Tyranitar bore down on the main source of light, its teeth crackling with electricity, seeming to go for catching the Crabhammer in said voltage-charged teeth!

Hayrum nodded.  "Right!  Franky!"  Soon, the halls were lit with the yellow light of Magnet Rise as Hayrum once again air-surfed on the Metang.  If it was a software issue....Metang weren't as powerful as a Metagross, but still worked faster than most tech departments he'd seen.  Somehow, as the smoke became visible, the pit in his stomach that said this was in fact a very nasty hardware issue grew bigger and bigger.  Inputting his own access code, he walked in as the doors ground open on the same power as the emergency lights in the arena.  [Hope Chief has something with Flash...]  It was dark in here, aside from the glow of molten metal cooling, the two red rings that made the Metang's irises in its eyes and the fire in one of the generators.  "Ohhh good,"  he commented as the water from the automated sprinklers fell on his head, making him quietly thankful that the soles of his boots were rubber, noting some wires on the floor.  He held up the Heavy Ball and whispered.  "Franky, come back."  He'd have to be careful here, this place had gone from power plant to one giant hazard on at least three sides.  Clipping the Heavy Ball to his holster, he called out.  "Anyone here?"

"Tch, just great," Harold growled as he hung up the phone. He turned to the teenage youth standing by and said, "Tribel's been found, and the enemy wasn't a Tracker. Send the message, Davis. I want Tribel out of there, no matter the cost. Crush anyone that gets in the way; that girl, bumbling as she may be, is one of our best hackers, and we need whatever she may have uncovered."

The Meta grunt called Davis nodded, his smile brimming with glee, and pressed the button on the counter.



=======

Somewhere around the vicinity of the Trackers' main building and training facility, the Metas who hadn't been found out yet recieved the signal from Headquarters. There were, of course, silent complaints about Tribel's apparent incompetence, but order had been laid out for them.

The only thing to do now was execute it.



======

"Desmond, what are you still sitting there for? I thought I told you to get that Meta down from up there," Wylde said as he shielded his face from the sandstorm in the field.

Shion snapped back to reality at this point, as though she'd been in some trance. "Uh, right," she said, reaching for a Pokeball. She pulled out two and tossed them. "Rei, Spirit, I need your help."

The Togetic appeared again, along with an Espeon who yawned, as though it had been napping in its Pokeball.

"Rei," Shion instructed, "Use Confusion on that girl up there, and bring her down here. Spirit, you'll have to use Safeguard so that she doesn't get hurt."

As both Pokemon focused on their task, Shion found Arashi just a few inches away from the fallen Mightyena. The Quilava was covered in dust, cuts and bruises. The battle with the Lucario had worn him out; even if he stood up again, he wouldn't be in any condition to continue.

One crimson eye looked up at her as she knelt down next to him with a Super Potion in hand, and he barked apologetically.
Shion simply smiled and started spraying his wounds. "You worked really hard," she consoled, the fire-type, "That Lucario was a step ahead of us, that's all."

Silence exchanged a glance with her Abra.  Tace nodded and aimed a blast of Psychic toward the Meta on the roof.

Tribel found herself lifted into the air by the unseen force from the two Psychic Pokemon below and slowly lowered to the field down below. Before she could even have a chance to rush to her Mightyena's aid, Togetic cut her off with his tiny arms held out. "To-chiikku!"

"Ah!" Tribel stumbled backward into Travis, who was right behind her with the Lucario by his side. "Please, I just wanna see Yasha!"

"You are being detained, since you're a member of Metamorphosis," Shion explained.

"Aw, you Trackers are no fun!" The other girl pouted. "I was only doing my job, can you blame me?"


======

OOC: More to come. If someone posts after me, it'll be the next thing I write.

            Travis shoved the girl away, pulling a small spray bottle out of his bag. "Your kind can be accused of a great many things. Stupidity being one of them." He began to apply the spray to Sen's injuries.

OOC: Ok, so yeah... I'm a little stuck here...

OOC: Such a lack of compassion to Tribel!  I'm sure that anyone in the games would at least let her see her Mightyena when it's obvious Yasha got hit hard =(

But yeah I'm giving you a bad time XP

IC:
"No, nobody is here," came the answer to Hayrum's voiced question as a figure stood in the darkened, damaged power room.  Even in the dark, Delano could see very well - maybe it was a side-effect of his condition.  That said, the light outside was often harsh on his eyes by comparison.
* * *
Crawdaunt saw the Thunder Fang coming, and averted the Crabhammer, deactivating it - and instead caught the bite from Rexitar as it engaged a glowing field of energy that absorbed the impact of Rexitar's blow entirely, despite how utterly strong it was.  But that came at a cost, as close-quarter combat with a Tyranitar would be dangerous.  The Crawdaunt decided to use the remainder of the Protect field to struggle and break away from Rexitar's fangs, recklessly roughhousing around the arena floor with no regard to who was near the battle.

Hayrum chuckled.  "Well then, Mr. Body...or should I call you Noh?...either way...let's have a better look at you, shall we?  Chuck!  Shed some light on our new friend!"  Letting both hands fall to his sides, Hayrum undocked the Great Ball from its holster and threw it, palming another ball from the opposite side.  "Spotlight time!"

Hayrum had done a few Contests in his time as a way to figure out how his team could more effectively work together.  As such, he knew how to use more aspects of his pokemon in battle than just how hard they could hit.  For instance, right now his Skarmory was circling high above at increasing speeds, catching flashes of light and firelight in its steel wings and angling its flight just so, so that all the light it caught was beamed straight down onto the mystery man!

Hayrum clipped the Great Ball back onto his belt, then cracked the knuckles in his free hand.  "Hrm...I don't recognize your face, and I make it a point to remember faces.  Mr. Body, you'd better have a good explanation for being here."

Rexitar was driven back a couple of feet, which said something about the Crawdaunt despite its smaller size. Wylde dove out the way of his partner's tail to avoid being hit.

"All of you, get out the way!" the man barked at the younger trainers, and they didn't need telling twice.

Even as they shuffled a safe distance away from the escalating battle, Tribel continued to pout. "You know," she started, "You all shouldn't be so hasty just to keep me from going anywhere. Any minute now, your whole place is gonna be overrun."

"A lot of talk coming from someone who can't battle," Travis snapped irritably, resuming his treatment of his Lucario's wounds.


Meanwhile, Wylde had gotten to his feet as the Tyranitar let loose a booming roar. "Ancient Power," he commanded, his expression determined.

Almost at once, Boulders and rocks that were strewn around the field rose into the air and sped towards Crawdaunt!


======

*CRASH!*

Glass shattered at the entrance to the training facility as Metamorphosis trainers, stormed the place, catching passing trainers off-guard.

At the forefront as a bald man clad in a long black coat, a trademark of a higher-ranked Metamorphosis trainer. He simply reached into his pocket and tossed a Pokeball, which opened to reveal a lunging Seviper crashing into another trainer's Zangoose.

"We've got our orders," the man barked. "Storm the place. Retrieve Tribel, and whatever we still need, take it by force and by any means necessary. Of course, this also means helping yourself to any Pokemon you need."


======

Meanwhile, a young woman in her early twenties hurried along a corridor on the back of her Arcanine to a certain door at the end of the hall. As the canine Pokemon came to a stop beside that door, she scrambled off, nearly falling in the process, and knocked on the door.

"Master Fayte! This an emergency," she squeaked out, half-terrified. "It's Metamorphosis!"

When there was no answer, the woman knocked harder. "Master Fayte!"

"Calm down."

The trainer froze as the door opened, revealing the person called Fayte on the other side of the threshold.

Fayte Cameron, the head of the Trackers, was a woman in her late twenties with long, curly black hair and violet eyes. She wore a short white jacket over a cream-colored blouse and denim straight-legged pants, the bottoms of which were neatly covered with white knee-high belted boots. Behind her, an Alakazam levitated a couple of feet from the floor in a cross-legged position, its expression one of intense focus.

"I'm aware of the situation," Fayte said casually. "There seems to be another source of our chaos... Mystery?"

The younger woman and Arcanine jumped as a Mismagus' head popped out from the wall behind her. It gave a low cry in response before floating over her head and stopping beside its raven-haired trainer. Fayte rested her fingertips on the side of its face for a moment before nodding, as though she understood it.

"I see. So that's what it is," she said calmly. She turned to the rattled trainer before her and said, "You. Inform Wylde that there is another lone intruder in our midst."

"What are you going to do?"

"The answer is simple, don't you think?" The smallest hint of a smirk graced Fayte's expression before the Alakazam opened its eyes, and, in a flash, it, Fayte, and the Mismagus had vanished.


======

OOC: The leader of the Trackers enters the fray! She's another NPC. However, her two team members do not have nicknames! Here's a short profile:

Name: Fayte Cameron
Age: Late twenties
Gender: Female
Affiliation: Trackers- Boss Lady
Hometown: It's a secret!
Pokemon Team:
Alakazam (Male)- Teleport; other moves unknown
Mismagus (Female)- moves unknown
Other Pokemon on team unknown

I'll be constantly thinking up ways to try and tune up the action bit by bit, so keep a look out for it... on the new board! XD
