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!
"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.
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.
