Here it is, folks, another exciting installment of POKÉMON MOON! Without further ado, last time, we left off here:
right outside of what I’m pretty sure is Secret Lab B. It could be a storage closet, who knows. We also got some pretty great Gladion development AND backstory last ep! Ah yes, and Lillie and Cosmog were kidnapped.
(The music in this place just made my dog growl because he thought it was a doorbell or something.)
WE’RE GOING IN.
WE’RE IN. Oh, hey Hau.
Heck yeah, we get a double battle with him! He still had that Alolan Raichu, I see. It actually did more in the battle than I did. =D
yes please explain what type: null is
Nah, then they just leave. Sassy Aether Foundation.
Rotom down there is actually recommending that I read all the documents in here. Thanks for the reminder! Let’s find some CREEPY STUFF!
First off, confirmation that a different dimension lies beyond the Ultra Wormholes. It’s interesting that Mohn discovered this when he was a professor, but now he’s just relaxing and working at the Poke Pelago. I wonder if he took himself out of the picture out of guilt…
The cutest one of all, surely.
The dimension’s named “Ultra Space” because why not stick with the theme.
Well, now Hau wants to go and tell Glad about this right away. HEY WAIT UP
“If you stress it…” Gladion just coming right out and saying it.
“Gladion never really explains anything, eh? Probably thinks it makes him look cool…” i mEAN
And now we ARE going into Secret Lab A! Sorry ’bout this, Gladion!
…Oh. Okay. The others aren’t really in here, but we’ve got Files #2, #5, #7, #11, #18, and #44 to look at.
Heck yeah, Sinnoh REPRESENT
Uhhhh that’s not an N
To sum up: to combat Ultra Beasts, the Aether Foundation created three Pokémon using data from all eighteen types. They were named Type: Full 01, 02, and 03. They didn’t listen to their “trainers,” though, so they were renamed Type: Null and set to be frozen for the rest of eternity, that’s what it says, please calm down, scientists.
These Pokémon were also called BKP, or – I’m assuming – Beast Killing Pokémon. Killing other Pokémon in battle is geeeenerally a topic Pokémon tries to stay away from.
There’s still a computer I haven’t looked at with some options on it: Introduction, Multitasking, Hedging risks, and Massaging the truth.
Oh my god!! It’s the author of the journals!!!
No, but these don’t say too much. Basically, Faba (I assume) worked for a while in creating a new Pokeball and/or a device to restrain dangerous Pokémon; his boss’ family stole the device and nothing ever came of it. Hmm.
The last thing in here is a Pokeball, which contains: a FULL restore. Haha very funny.
There doesn’t seem to be anything else to explore, so I guess I’ll go back to the elevator and head to “B1F: Docks.” Or, wait, there’s still nothing there…?
Ah! There they are!
Hau, come on, he’s edgy. It’s his THING.
And now we’re double battling with Hau again! WOO! Oh snap the employees have a Mudsdale, that is NOT good for either Dug or Raichu. And there’s a Pelipper right next to it…is this an Earthquake strategy?
Oh, nope, he’s just gonna use High Horsepower to frickin critical oneshot Raichu.
The good news is that now I officially get to see PRIMARINA!!
HE’S A SELKIE FAIRY MERMAID! I LOVE HIM! I’ve seen like one piece of fanart on Tumblr – just enough to get the “mermaid” impression, but I forgot the name – and now this is confirmation that Primarina is Popplio’s final evolution. Boy, this knocks Meganium and Delphox out of the water for being “strangest starter to have a high male to female ratio,” though. I mean, I’m not judging.
Now the only starter designs I haven’t seen are Torracat and Incineroar. Sadly spoiled on the names, but that’s not so bad!!
Oh, and Primirina’s using his Z-Move: HYDRO VORTEX!! Mudsdale is DOWN!
That sure was an explosive first introduction. Nice one, Hau! I’m actually, like, genuinely looking forward to battling his team! IS THIS HOW THE RIVALS HAVE FELT ALL THESE YEARS??
Anyways. Aether is down, what now?
Ah shut up you NERD
Oh snap Wicke’s back!
Gladion does NOT seem happy to see her. But, uh, she’s healing our Pokémon….
Lillie is possibly with The President, Miss Lusamine, whose charms Hau has still been beguiled by!
h-half hour TV special on Gladion’s childhood? please?
I thought Ms. Wicke was evil, but she really doesn’t seem to be doing anything to stop us. And she says about Gladion that “Those two are very much alike…” who’s the comparison? Lusamine?
Okay, let’s go help Hau and Glad break the door down!
or, like…battles. more battles.
HAHA HAU JUST BLOWS THROUGH FABA’S LOGIC! Don’t bring the key with you next time!
Double battle with Gladion this time?? HECK YES. Except…no, don’t use Golbat. Use the COOL Pokémon. Jeez.
Dug just got paralyzed, stuck by paralysis, and confused in one turn! GOSHDARN IT!
(now BOTH of us are paralyzed and confused and we both hit ourselves in confusion)
Okay, next turn: Electabuzz knocks out Dug, Golbat, AND its partner Magmar with Discharge. This is the worst battle ever. On the bright side, Type: Null gets to do some wrecking. (EXCEPT STATIC PARALYZED IT! HECK!!!)
No worries, Branch knocked it out. Don’t worry, Gladion, stressful situations strengthen our bond. please heal me Wicke
Ooh, we’re settling this with one last double battle! Hau and me versus Faba and some other guy! And Dug is magically not fainted anymore!
Faba appears to be a Psychic specialist because he has a Slowbro, a Hypno, and a…Bruxish what the HECK IS THIS THING???
It’s like…a colorful piranha, and I’m having trouble thinking of what it might have evolved from. I don’t like it though. Raichu oneshotted it, yes, very good.
Haha, Pokémon did a Funny Thing and zoomed in on all of our faces: Hau smiling, Gladion MURDEROUS, and me blank-faced and creepy, and we threatened Faba into handing over the key. Way to take advantage of your limited facial expression selection, game people! Nice work!
With Branch up front, let’s go through that door.
WE HAVE A FACEOFF.
First off, I have no idea what number that is, Hau, and second, I actually did forget that Plumeria brought her over here and not Aether. Huh. Can we find out the connection now?
Hau, why didn’t you realize they were working together. c’mon it’s not that hard buddy.
I should probably go rescue Gladion from Guzma now, but this place is HUGE! I found a staircase and spotted a Pokeball I can’t get to yet. Might actually have to beat up Team Skull first.
“sponsor that supports team skull!” OH. Thanks, random grunt. That explains something, at least…
Aaand the last grunt doesn’t even fight me. Nice fakeout!
You just need more Pokémon, friend. And grind them. Grinding helps.
Uhhhh…I thought he was talking to me, but I don’t think leaving my mom alone with the moving boxes counts as a rejection.
AND NOW! WE’RE BATTLING!!! I will say that all this has been happening a LITTLE close to Po Town, but at least the first time we met him was a pretty long time ago (unlike Lysandre’s rapid-fire challenges).
Branch vs Golisopod let’s GO. Dang, I’m faster. DANG IT HAS SWORDS DANCE.
And Emergency Exit takes it away despite the Infestation! Let’s do it, Branch vs Masquerain – why did I flinch, oh boy. he’s fainted. oh boy
I wanted to try out Mallah next just to see if he could get Nasty Plot going, but Bug Buzz oneshotted him. I should stop underestimating this Masquerain, all right. Dug, let’s go!
Golisopod taken down by Silkie and Branch’s Toxic!
Tulip taken down by a Pinsir, who is then defeated by Dug. Dug oneshots the Ariados and singlehandedly saves the team. Three out of five of my team are fainted, so hey, I can see why Gladion had trouble.
Oh jeez, he really is upset.
Team in shambles, but let’s go ahead, why not? WE FIGHT LIKE REAL WARRIORS.
…Yeah, if I picked a character, Lusamine seems a safe bet for this mansion to belong to.
All the other ways are blocked off, so forward we go.
There they are!!
Heck, look at her eyes. Green eyes. Blonde hair. FAMILIAR. Or should I say, FAMILIAL.
Poor friend! She’s so glad we came for her!! SHE’S SO SCARED ;-;
“A gifted young trainer like Leah…and she bothers with someone like you? How disappointing.” you disappoint my FACE you jerk
Oh, she’s just rejecting them. Oh dang 😦
exCUSE me have you SEEN her HAT?? LOOK AT THAT RIBBON! IT’S GORGEOUS.
It is super weird seeing something all in lowercase.
Lusamine’s about to summon her sweet beast, everyone run for it
They said it! DUDE THEY SAID IT!
I just…okay, just look at that out of context. That hair is the real Ultra Beast.
Much more intimidating from the front.
Time to save Nebby but Lillie hasn’t even healed my Pokémon! Come onnnn (i just slept in lusamine’s bed and that didn’t do anything either)
Is this where the Type: Nulls are?!
Oh wow. I see a Slowpoke, Pyukumuku, and Pikachu encased in the ice…wonder why those Pokémon specifically.
Hey, Hau caught up to us!! AND GLADION! SAVE US.
Everyone stand back, Gladion and Lusamine are facing off
this is amazing
aaaAAH NEBBY NO
!!! HECK THEY’RE EVERYWHERE. This is like the drought/drizzle in Gen 3, except with dark clouds and wormholes.
Sounds like Nebby’s still hanging in there, thank goodness.
Everyone is scared and Leah is STILL like c:
“Near Melemele Island’s Mahalo Trail…” This reminds me of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, I think.
Hala! This just in, he’s apparently a derp when he’s alone. But this is not the time because WOAH THAT LOOKS AWESOME.
Look who it is! Wow, I didn’t realize he fit inside his shell like that.
Do we get to see all the cool captains and kahunas doing things again??
It’s Guzma! And wants to catch the Ultra Beast…I mean, so do I.
GLADION VERSUS ULTRA BEAST WHAT???
aaaaah wish you guys could hear his theme music right now
Here we go. AM FIGHTING THE PRESIDENT.
My Pokémon are again magically fully healed…you know what? THANK!!! GOD!!!!!!!!
First up is Branch against a Clefable. Good matchup, but this thing is level 41.
Also, it has Metronome! It got Strength and then…Discharge, ugh. It’s all right, Branch knocked it out. Now he’s level 41 too.
Next we have LILLIGANT!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!! I LOVE LILLIGANT HOLY HECK!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!
Using Mallah. It tried to Stun Spore and Teeter Dance me, but Mallah avoided it all because he loves me, hooray! He was able to set up Nasty Plot and knock it out right away with Psychic. Milotic time. I approve of these Pokémon.
He knocked it out and his special attack is even higher because of Charge Beam! I’m not gonna switch out…let’s go for a MALLAH SWEEP!
She has a….”Bewear?” OH IT’S A STUFFUL EVOLUTION! It looks so odd! I think I’ve seen it before but I just thought it was a Stufful at a weird angle. It’s taken out.
Next up is…OH MY GOD MISMAGIUS???? THIS IS ALSO ONE OF MY FAVORITES. LUSAMINE’S TEAM IS AMAZING.
And Mallah’s epic sweep is a SUCCESS! I think he deserves some Pokémon Refresh for this.
Hey, I’d be mad too if my Lilligant missed everything.
The wormhole is disappearing!
Ah, so that’s what Faba’s blog was talking about.
Oh heck, the Beast is making Lusamine flicker…and she’s gone?? so is guzma??? lillie why are you sad??
gladion, that’s your SISTER, don’t just LEAVE
Ms. Wicke is back.
I hope this means we’re not completely done with the Evil Team plot.
“Lusamine is still our mother…we can’t just leave her in the beast’s world.” I meaaaaaaannn
Oh! Alola’s legendary Pokémon! I almost forgot they were a thing. Hau is a true believer, it seems.
Do I say “Everything’ll be fine” or “You’re right?” I think the former, since Lillie is still here.
Time to sleep??
Hm. That’s…chilling, though I’m not quite sure why. “Just one last time…”
And off to the next day!
Yes, good morning. She says Lillie is waiting for me.
And we’re leaving off right there! GUYS. GUYS. OH MY GOSH. SO MUCH STUFF HAPPENED. AHHHH.
LILLIE AND GLADION ARE SIBLINGS AND I NEED CUTE FANART/FANFICTIONS IMMEDIATELY.
LUSAMINE IS VERY EVIL???? I MAINLY WANT TO RESCUE THEM TO SAVE THEIR POKÉMON.
I will see you all soon with more ADVENTURES! IN SPACE! Probably!
