Hearing that a Pokemon runs the oceans doesn’t sound too far-fetched to Jumpy, though the name Kyogre does cause him to scratch his head, it being close to the name of his mentor.

"Kyogre?  Huh.  Kind of close to Kyrogk, my teacher’s name." He shrugs.  (Just a humorous observation.  I RP him over on DA and Skype.)

And learning there are stinky Pokemon he’d smell before seeing sends a shiver down his spine.  He really doesn’t want to come across anything disgusting, end up getting covered in said odor either.

"Muk and Grimer, watch out for the smell.  RIght!  Hope we don’t come across them." Jumpy nods his understanding.

Hearing that there are humans strong enough to spar at least a few rounds with some Fighting Pokemon immediately catches Jumpy’s attention.  He stops shadow boxing and perks up.

"What?!  Awesome! There’s people strong enough to duke it out for a bit with Pokemon?  Wow!  I’ll have to ask Beyard about that!  I bet I could do it too!  Woohoo!" he replies with a big grin.  (Now that would be something to see!  lol )

Seeing them come to a wall, Jumpy looks confused, thinking they took a wrong turn perhaps.  He hopes they don’t get stuck down there.

"What’s up?  Looks like we hit a dead end.  Unless…  Whoa!  A secret passage!  This gets better!" he exclaims in a whispered tone, wide-eyed at the reveal.

He wastes no time getting on the ladder and climbing down after Blaze.  All this secrecy is building his anticipation towards what they’ll see at the Gym.  This kind of surprise, he can’t imagine what else is in store.

Blaze merely shook his head at Jumpy’s observation of the name. He’d have been saying something very different had he met the ‘god’ of the seas.

"Many people consider those Pokemon to be akin to what you might call a ‘god’, and their power rivals that as well. If Groudon did not exist, Kyogre could flood the earth in a matter of minutes." It defied logic, and the water cycle, but it was a very real threat with such a superpower Pokemon.

Still, he almost… He wasn’t sure, feelings weren’t exactly something Blaze familiarized himself with, and he had little desire to do so.

"If a Grimer or a Muk nears, they’ll have trouble with any one of my Pokemon. Poison types like them are weak to ground types, which Tyranitar has access to, Steel types like Scizor are immune to poison, and psychic Pokemon are also extremely potent against them.Those Poison types tend to thrive in sewers and such so outside of places like this, the odds of meeting them are next to nonexistent." Blaze responded, a hand in his jacket pocket.

He simply nodded at Jumpy’s excitement, wondering how anyone (unless on some kind of drug of course) could be so… Over the top. At least he wasn’t as idiotic as a few people he could name…

"The people that are usually able to go toe to toe with fighting types sacrifice almost everything in their efforts to grow stronger. It’s a difficult road that most can’t take." He warned.

As they headed down the ladder, Blaze remained silent and once the two of them had stepped off the aged steel rungs.

As they began to walk again, a low rumbling echoed above them and the flickers of light from above faded, leaving them in total darkness for a few seconds. Then, after a few moments, lights flickered on the aged stone walls.

"Just a bit further. There’s an old doorway up ahead that leads to the gym."

Hearing that such powerful Pokemon keep each other in check actually manages to leave Jumpy speechless.  Not an easy thing to do with such a hyper kid!

"Wow… That’s intense.  Lots of water where I come from too.  Some guess that there was a really huge flood in ancient times, but what could cause that…" Jumpy finally manages to say.  He’s heard legends of ancient flooding, and his homeworld of Terra has fa-reaching flooding as far as the eye can see, but he can’t begin to comprehend such a force that could cause it in the first place, be it back home or in the world he’s currently in with the all powerful Pokemon.

If they encounter any Poison types, it’s good to know Blaze has it covered too.  Jumpy knows the danger of travelling unprepared in subterranean locales, what with the various hazards of the ruins on his own Island to name a few.

"You’re Pokemon have some kind of advantage?  Nice!  I guess it makes sense there’d be weaknesses and stuff, with Pokemon having elemental powers and other things.  I know it can get crazy if you go into a situation unprepared." Jumpy remarks.

With Blaze’s comment on how people need to push themselves to the limit and beyond to even spar with crazy powerful Fighting type Pokemon, Jumpy nods.  He might be impulsive but he knows the benefits of hard training.

"Yeah, I figured that much.  I mean I’m pretty fast myself, and I’ve gotten a little stronger too!  But against something that could punch through a boulder or whatever, that might be another matter.   Heh!"  Jumpy states.  From experience he knows that there are those with super strength that shouldn’t be taken lightly.  Best not to bite off more than one can chew as the saying goes!

VWIP!

As they proceed down the ladder rungs, Jumpy almost slips his grip but catches himself in time.

"Yikes!  That was a close one!  Bit tricky doing this with gloves on." he says as he stops his fumbling.  Though awkward, he does have some practice doing things with gloves on.

After they reach the bottom, the rumbling and lights cutting out causes Jumpy to jump in surprise for a moment.  Last thing he wants is to be moving around blind in the dark.  (And good reason.  With things like Sharukurusu reaverbots in the ruins back home, darkness in underground tunnels can be very dangerous.)

"Yikes!  What happened to the lights? Phew!  That was nuts!  Er, sorry about the yelling.  Bad things can happen in the dark back at home when underground." Jumpy says.

Collecting himself, he follows after Blaze as he leads the way to the door.  His anticipation is slowly building again, as he’s eager to get to the gym and see what it looks like.

So happy to see this - some of these shots I’m seeing finished for the first time! ( ᵒ̴̶̷̥́ ·̫ ᵒ̴̶̷̣̥̀ )
Disney’s Big Hero 6 - Official US Trailer 2

((Looks awesome!  Pretty different from the comics, but looks to be a cool original twist on the concept.  Plus I’d imagine some of the original comic characters being X-Men related and Fox owning those film rights would have complicated things.  Looking forward to seeing who else they’ll have in the team, and the new Baymax is great as a big balloon guy! lol  ))

Hearing Blaze tell him to remain silent, Jumpy nods his head in understanding and stops talking for a bit.  He knows when to be quiet and heed warnings.  Although hearing that Pokemon did in fact create this world in and of itself has surprised even him into becoming silent for a bit as he tries to wrap his mind around it.  This Acreus and the others, the Pokemon are really amazing!

"Guess you all really can do anything.  Wow." Jumpy whispers in a low voice, fortunately resisting the urge to raise his voice in exclamation.

After being led to the ladder in silence and hearing again Blaze’s statement that he needs to be stay on his toes, Jumpy nods.  He might be looking forward to seeing more of this new place, but he knows not to get too comfortable in potentially dangerous areas.

"Right!  You know, this almost reminds me of some of the underground ruins back home.  Though there’s no scary bots jumping out at us." Jumpy says as he reaches the bottom of the ladder.

Jumpy smiles a bit at seeing Blaze’s closeness with Espeon, noticing that Blaze has been through hard times he can’t imagine but still manages to stay close to those he cares for.

"Not sure what’s waiting ahead for us, but I’m ready all the same!" Jumpy smirks as he reaches for his boxing gloves draped around his neck and pulls them on his hands once again.  Then he tosses a few quick jabs in the air.

SWISH!

SWISH!

Then he realizes Blaze might be rolling his eyes at his actions again.  Might be predictable, but Jumpy’s often reaches for them to put on a brave face.  Sort of a hyperactive reflex.  (Some old habits die hard.  But he has KOed a couple Birdbots and smaller Reaverbots before.)

"Yeah okay!  So they might not be best for defense, but they help me feel a bit safer going into the unknown and stuff!"  Jumpy replies, blushing a slight shade of red in embarrassment as he waits for Blaze to lead the way.

Relieved that Jumpy had at least some common sense brought a bit of relief for the Asadan.

Once they were in the much more secure underground, Blaze’s Espeon spoke into Jumpy’s mind.

We Pokemon may have an important role in the world, but so do humans. Just because Kyogre rules the seas doesn’t mean that human relevance is nonexistent.

Espeon decided not to go into further detail as he closed his eyes, enjoying Blaze’s attention. It was rare that he pet the psychic pokemon in front of company.

"About the most dangerous thing you’ll run into in these ruins is a muk or grimer. But their sent is great enough that you’ll sense it long before you run into them."  Muk and Grimer truly did have an unpleasant scent.

It wasn’t long before Jumpy started shadow boxing, and the Asadan mentally sighed. He was still a kid, so it wasn’t too surprising.

"Hm. If you trained hard enough, with the right mentor, and if you truly desired, you possibly could handle a few spars with fighting types. If Beyard returns in time, he might indulge you in a few stories about that." A few humans over history had pulled off that astounding feat.

It was rare, but it did happen. Most notably was Bruno of the Elite Four in Kanto. Sure, he devoted almost all of his time to growing stronger, but the fact that he could hold his own against some fighting types was a testament to his power and skill.

Although, it was unusual for Blaze to divulge extra information, especially as much as he was giving away today.

Shaking his head, he approached a seemingly dead end, and pushed on a brick, causing a passageway to open up at their feet.

"The gym is below." He stated before approaching the hole and taking the ladder down.

Hearing that a Pokemon runs the oceans doesn’t sound too far-fetched to Jumpy, though the name Kyogre does cause him to scratch his head, it being close to the name of his mentor.

"Kyogre?  Huh.  Kind of close to Kyrogk, my teacher’s name." He shrugs.  (Just a humorous observation.  I RP him over on DA and Skype.)

And learning there are stinky Pokemon he’d smell before seeing sends a shiver down his spine.  He really doesn’t want to come across anything disgusting, end up getting covered in said odor either.

Hearing about the Psychic types abilities to bend time and alter memories causes Jumpy’s jaw to practically hit the ground.  He never would have imagined Pokemon would possess such powers!

"Sounds cool!  I’ll bet there’s thousands of Pokemon out there!  Heh!  And you guys can do all that?!  Wow!  Next thing you know, there’ll be a Pokemon that made your world or something!" Jumpy replies.  (Yes, a little joke at Arceus. Little does Jumpy know. lol )

Seeing Blaze come back, Jumpy snaps to attention, ready to see and learn more of Asada while he’s their impromptu guest.  And with Blaze describing that the gym isn’t a castle, this piques Jumpy’s interest.

"Not a castle?  Now I really want to see the place!" Jumpy remarks, eager to see what’s so different about the place.

And when Espeon is out again, confirming they’ll be teleporting Jumpy braces himself, ready for another rapid change of scenery.  

"Here we go again!" he smiles as they’re teleported to the Windfall area.

A moment later, they arrive, and Jumpy’s surprised to see a warehouse quite different from the medieval style caste he was in seconds before!  (Assuming it’s a more modern architectural style.)  Not sure what to make of his dark surroundings, his curiosty is still fresh as he runs around in a circle, trying to get a better look at their current surroundings.  But he doesn’t run too far ahead into the darkness.  As with most Carbons from Terra, he knows to be wary of dark places that might conceal Reaverbots, or Pokemon as the case may be in this world.

"Wow!  Now that is different!  Where are we now?  I can’t see much of anything!  Hm…  Hello! Anybody there?" Jumpy runs around, even raising his voice a little to see if there’s a response.  He still stays close to Blaze, not wanting any more nasty surprises to jump out.

Exactly how many is still debatable. Perhaps there’s no limit to our species. We’re a fluid group, quickly evolving. Sometimes, it seems as though we change on a daily basis. Gallade’s tone was contemplative as he made that last observation.

Shaking his head, Blaze did something outside of character thus far.

"A world must be created from something, or someone. Legends state that it was Arceus that gave birth to our world and he formed a trinity of mighty Pokemon to control time, space, and distortion. Later, Kyogre formed the seas, and Groudon gave birth to the land. Regigigas towed the continents to their present location, and the lake trio governs will, emotion, and thought. Our world is populated by Pokemon with powers beyond mortal understanding." It was why so many people in Asada used to essentially worship Pokemon.

Once teleported, Blaze gripped Jumpy’s shoulder, and raised a hand to his lips.

"You can ask questions later. For now though, we need to remain quiet."

Quietly slipping into the warehouse, Espeon shut the large door behind them silently. Then, leading Jumpy to a ladder, they went underground, following an aged pathway for about ten minutes. While there, Blaze spoke, his voice echoing off the aged brick.

"We’re safe enough here. I’m sure Gallade mentioned Team Eternity already, but if not, they’re about as dangerous as they come, and there’s a lot of them. That’s why we need to be quiet when not in secured locations. Here should be fine, but keep on your toes." Blaze observed as Espeon hopped onto Blaze’s shoulder and started to nuzzle up against the large man.

As Blaze’s hand rubbed Espeon’s head, a ghost of a smile passed over his face.

His was a face aged prematurely. He’d weathered many, many trials and tribulations thus far.

Hearing Blaze tell him to remain silent, Jumpy nods his head in understanding and stops talking for a bit.  He knows when to be quiet and heed warnings.  Although hearing that Pokemon did in fact create this world in and of itself has surprised even him into becoming silent for a bit as he tries to wrap his mind around it.  This Acreus and the others, the Pokemon are really amazing!

AHHHHH THE TANOOKI EARS ON MEGA :D

Must.. resist… cuteness… ><

(You got Tanuki! lol Wonder how some of the other power ups will look on him?)

(Mega Gallade is still Psychic and Fighting)

((It’s been brought to my attention by pokepslicing24 (Tumblr app ate your Ask while I was trying to answer) that Mega Gallade is still a Psychic and Fighting type after Mega evolving. I was hoping that Gallade would finally have the chance to get in on the Fairy type like Gardevoir. Would have been cool for Mega Gallade to gain the Fairy type to have an even bigger edge against Dark types, and fight Dragons too.

Not to mention the option to basically change from Psychic to Fairy once per battle would have been awesome. They could have even given it a decent physical Fairy attack too. (Not sure about any physical Fairy attacks since I’ve been using mostly special ones).

Rant over. That aside, I’ll still be using Mega Gallade a bunch, and I wonder what its abilities will be? (I’m a casual battler but I do dabble in some strategy from time to time.)

(Special thanks to DinnerSonic for the idea on this one!)

((Woohoo!!! More Megas were revealed for Pokemon ORAS and now some of my favorites have confirmed Mega forms!

There’s Mega Sharpedo looking awesome, with some more scars and some kind of sawfish snout. I only wish it had a full body with a tail. No full shark this time.

Mega Camerupt! This one looks good too. If one of Aqua’s mascots gets a mascot, makes sense Magma’s will. The bigger volcano is a nice touch too.

And finally we have a MEGA GALLADE!! Woohoo! Gallade is one of my top favorites and I’ve been saying for a while that we needed a Mega Gallade since X and Y came out last year.  No reason Gardevoir should be the only Mega in the Ralts line.  Looks awesome!  The changed arm weapons are great, and the cape-thing on the back looks cool!  Only wish it had more green, but otherwise great! Wonder if it’ll be a Fairy and Fighting type?))

"Wow!  That many?" Jumpy says, his jaw nearly hitting the floor after hearing the sheer magnitude of Pokemon out there.  Really is a diverse array of unique creatures!

Seeing Gallade levitate the dishes catches him off guard, but he’s met others with psychic powers that probably aren’t that different from Gallade’s.  (Once again, some of my other OCs.  Jumpy is a very well traveled individual with some interdimensional miles on his travel card. lol Also ironic in that character, Jenaku, shares a name with my first Gallade!)

"Psychokinesis too!  Nice!  You really do have all the psychic powers!  One of my trainer’s bros can do that too." Jumpy says excitedly.

Seeing Blaze arrive, Jumpy is happy to hear they’ll be going someplace new.  He’s ready to see more of this new place.  Figures he’ll take in the sights while he’s there!

"Hi Blaze!  So your friend is out?  Bummer.  But at least I’ll get to meet some other kids who’re trainers too!  I want to see more of what these Electric Pokemon can do up close!  Er, and it would be nice to at least get a shirt, jacket and stuff too.  Heh!  Oh!  Almost forgot my boxing gloves!  Okay!  So!  How are we gonna get there?  Is it another castle?" Jumpy replies, eager to meet new faces.  He also grabs his gloves, not wanting to leave them behind (although what good they’ll do, who knows.  He can be an impulsive kid still.)

Gallade simply nodded in agreement.

Indeed. Countless Pokemon continue to be discovered, some of which use powers of their own to vanish from the minds of those that found them, only for them to be found decades later once again. It’s… Almost a type of game in a way. Humans continue to discover, and Pokemon continue to just give enough secrets to keep people coming back for more. It was a close enough analogy at least.

Once the dishes were sent back to the kitchen and Blaze entered, the psychic Pokemon resumed. To no surprise of the fighting type, Blaze was content to allow him free reign to speak instead of his trainer.

We psychic type Pokemon have access to a wide array of powers, and even the weakest psychic Pokemon tend to be much more powerful than any psychically inclined human. Some Pokemon are rumored to be powerful enough to bend time, space and memories alike with complete ease.

With that said, Blaze took over at last, recalling the fighting type.

"At least the odds of you getting proper attire will be much higher than here." He decided not to comment on the title of friend.

Friends were something he’d long since abandoned the concept of, save for his Pokemon, and even that could be considered… Strained at points.

Sighing though, Blaze shook his head at Jumpy’s antics. Then, after a long pause, he spoke again.

"No, it’s not another castle. This is a very special building after all…" Most of Asada was more modernized than the ATLA fortress and the E4 Island were in their construction.

The gyms were all well concealed, and sometimes would actually be moved. It made it hard for challengers, but kept the people of the gym safer, longer.

Pulling another Pokeball off of his belt, he revealed Espeon once more. Without uttering a single word, the three of them vanished from the halls, and appeared in a quiet, somewhat dark warehouse on the edge of Windall City. For now, this was Beyard’s fortress. But, once discovered, he and his people would vanish to another undisclosed location.

Thankfully, it wasn’t the sewers this time…

Hearing about the Psychic types abilities to bend time and alter memories causes Jumpy’s jaw to practically hit the ground.  He never would have imagined Pokemon would possess such powers!

"Sounds cool!  I’ll bet there’s thousands of Pokemon out there!  Heh!  And you guys can do all that?!  Wow!  Next thing you know, there’ll be a Pokemon that made your world or something!" Jumpy replies.  (Yes, a little joke at Arceus. Little does Jumpy know. lol )

"Wow!  Now that is different!  Where are we now?  I can’t see much of anything!  Hm…  Hello! Anybody there?" Jumpy runs around, even raising his voice a little to see if there’s a response.  He still stays close to Blaze, not wanting any more nasty surprises to jump out.

That is just too far, Villager! TOO FAR!

(Oh no. I was only joking before about the Villagers stealing Rush! Guess they really can pocket just about anything. Poor Rush! lol Who knows what else they’ll take?)
