Chapter 29: The Swapping of Stories

Having cleared yet another trial, our heroes returned to Koni'Koni City, as per the request of Olivia, the Island Kahuna, "So, what do you think Olivia wants to do when she meets us back in town?" Fluttershy asked.

"Don't know. Could be anything," Will replied.

"Maybe it'll have something to do with her jewelry shop?" Lola theorized. Everyone didn't seem too convinced by her speculation, as made evident by their expressions, "Well, you never know!" Lola defended.

"Well, in any case, we're almost back in town," Will commented, as they arrived at the town gate. From there, they saw that the festival that was going on was in full swing. Trainers and Pokémon from the various regions were all mingling, trading Pokémon and information about their homelands.

"I'll trade you this Kiang for your Claydol," one boy offered to another.

"I absolutely adore that Froslass! I'm willing to trade you this Noctowl for her!" a girl offered to another.

"Looks like everyone's busy trading," Lori commented.

"I take it you guys will be trading too?" Leni asked.

"It would be a good idea to add some diversity to your teams. That way, you can make a well rounded team," Will added.

"I'll think about it. For now, I want to try to spend some time with some of my other Pokémon," Toby replied.

"Same here. I want to be able to get closer some of my other Pokémon," Fluttershy replied.

"Same here," Silver Spoon added. Serenity just nodded.

"What about you, Will?" Lincoln asked.

"I may take part in it as well. It's actually quite a thing when one uses a Pokémon from another region," Will said, as they arrived at the Pokémon Center. Unbeknownst to any of them, they were all about to meet up with a familiar face.... a bunch of familiar faces, in fact, "Nurse Joy, can you take care of our Pokémon?" Will asked, as each trainer gave the nurse the Pokeballs containing the Pokémon that were used in the Grand Trial.

"Certainly. I'll have them all back in tiptop shape in no time," Nurse Joy said, taking the Pokeballs. With that, the group all went over to the lounge area, so get off their aching feet.

"Oh man, my feet are killing!" Lana complained.

"Well, at least we can rest for a bit before we can take a look around the festival," Will brought up.

"Yeah, I'd like to get some grub while we're here," Lynn commented.

"I'd settle for some funnel cake," Silver Spoon added.

"Ah might be able to point ya in the direction of a good stall," a familiar voice said. Turning to the source, the Ponyville team all had bright smiles on them at the sight of their friend, Nathan, "Long time, no see," he said.

"Nathan! How've you been, man?" Toby exclaimed, bumping fists with the Texas boy.

"Things have been goin' pretty well over in Kalos. Ah managed to win at least five badges, but yeesh! Ah never realized travelin' across an entire region would be so hard!" Nathan replied, showing them his badge case. Inside, as he stated, were five badges.

"Looks like you've been busy little buddy," Will commented.

"Yup. Those Gym Leader's gave me a run for mah money," Nathan replied. It was then he noticed the Loud Siblings, "Uh, who're your friends?" Nathan asked. The Louds all gave their own introductions, "Pleased ta meet y'all. Name's Nathan," the southern boy greeted.

"I take it this guy's one of your pals?" Luna asked.

"Yeah. It's thanks to him that all of our friends got started out on our journeys," Fluttershy replied.

"Yeah, but after meetin' with the others, they may be close to callin' it quits with the traveling, or at the very least, takin' a break from it. Turns out they're just as exhausted as Ah am. Same goes with mah parents and..... Rachel's family," Nathan said, trying to remember Rarity's alias.

"Well, it is your call to make. But never forget all the fun you guys had on your adventures," Will stated.

"Yeah, but we ain't planning to head back home just yet. We're stickin' around for a bit to help out with the Swap Meet Festival," Nathan replied.

"Well, that's good," Silver Spoon said.

"Yup. But what about y'all? How've you been doing in Alola?" Nathan asked.

"Actually, we've been doing pretty good so far. Just take a look," Toby said, as he and the others showed him their Z Crystals.

"Turns out Alola doesn't have any gyms. They use something similar from Ancient Times called 'Trials'. Completing a Trial or Grand Trial wins you one of these Z Crystals," Will explained.

"Neat! So, what do they do?" Nathan asked.

"Why don't we regroup with the others and explain things there?" Will suggested.

"Makes sense," Nathan shrugged. It was then that the bell went off, signaling that their Pokémon were all healed up.

"I'm happy to report that all of your Pokémon are back to perfect health," Nurse Joy said, as the Pokémon were wheeled out on carts. Nathan was in awe at some of the Pokémon that were brought out.

"Thank you Nurse Joy," Will said, as the Pokémon went over to their trainers, with Tsareena leaning on Empoleon.

"Guess you're still hurting from the Grand Trial, huh Tsareena?" Toby asked. The Fruit Pokémon chittered in response.

"So, Ah recognize Empoleon, Gallade, Magneton, Hariyama, and Mawile, but who are these others?" Nathan asked.

"Ah yes. This is Decidueye, the final evolved form of the Alola Grass Starter, Rowlet," Will replied.

"This is Primarina, the final form of Popplio, the Water Starter," Fluttershy said, hugging Primarina.

"And this is Tsareena. She evolved all the way from a Grass Pokémon called Bounsweet. And she's a shiny one at that," Toby replied, as Tsareena flicked her hair like sepals.

"Nice," Nathan commented.

"If you think that's cool, just check this out," Will said, releasing his Grimer and Marowak.

"WHOA! Ah've never seen a Grimer or a Marowak that look like this before!" Nathan exclaimed.

"That's because Alola has various species of Pokémon that have different forms here than in any other region. It also affects their typing too, not just their appearance," Will explained, as they all recalled their Pokémon.

"Ah've gotta make it a point to catch me one o' these 'Alolan Form' Pokémon," Nathan stated.

"Truth is, Toby's the only one other than Will who has an Alolan Form Pokémon," Rotom stated.

"Whoa! Never seen a Pokedex that floats and talks like that!" Nathan commented.

"Ah yes. This Pokedex is a special model, as it has a Rotom inhabiting it. Rotom acts as our guide, and provides us with tons of details regarding Pokémon in Alola," Will explained.

"Wicked. So, which Alolan Form Pokémon do ya have, Toby?" Nathan asked.

"A Vulpix. It's snow white, and is an Ice Type," Toby replied, before remembering something, "Which reminds me.... I'll be taking out some of my Pokémon from Storage, while giving the majority of my team a break," Toby said, as he went over to the PC.

"That's right. We all agreed on giving the Pokémon in our teams a break from battling, so we can bond with some of our other Pokémon. Maybe you and the others can meet them too," Will said, as the five trainers all lined up behind Toby, who had just finished with the exchange.

"Cool. Ah'll go round up the others. They should be gettin' a break here in a little bit," Nathan said, as he exited the Pokémon Center, as the other trainers went on with their exchanges.

"I take it that Nathan guy is from your Earth too, Toby?" Leni asked.

"Well.... yes and no. Yes, we've all established that the others like me and Nathan are from Earth, but no, we don't know if we're all from the same Earth," Toby explained.

"So, you're saying is that Nathan could come from a separate universe altogether, along with the other children?" Lisa asked.

"Yes. All apart from our friend, Cory. He comes from another other universe too," Toby replied.

"Maybe we should drop this. My head will literally melt down trying to make sense of what is being said," Lori commented, rubbing her temples.

"Good call. When we all first met, we tried making sense of our stories, but we ended up giving up fairly quickly," Fluttershy chuckled, rubbing the back of her head.

"Well, in any case, why don't we go and see what this festival has to offer? It'll kill some time before Olivia comes back," Will suggested, as they left the Pokémon Center.

Later on,

After touring the festival grounds for about an hour, our heroes came to the town center, where a big battle field was located, "Looks like a lot of people are getting psyched for something," Lynn commented.

"They're getting pumped, because a battle exhibition is going to take place here. Read the signs once in a while, would ya?" the familiar voice of Busujima snarled. Looking around, they saw him, along with the other Bandit Star Pirates, sitting at some tables, looking like they were eating lunch.

"I'd thought we'd see you guys here. I take it your here for the trading?" Will questioned.

"How could we not be? The chance to get our hands on some super rare Pokémon from other regions is too good to pass up!" Chaz replied.

"Like my brother needs to trade! Sergey only came to prove how tough he really is!" Susie yelled at them, only for Sergey to pat her on the head, signaling for her to settle down.

"Buzz off," Busujima demanded, as a puffy, pink haired waitress gave him a ridiculously large sundae, "Aww, yeah!" he said, eyeing the sundae intently.

"Never pegged Busujima for having a sweet tooth," Toby whispered to Silver Spoon.

"Wait, that waitress....." Fluttershy said, recognizing her immediately.

"Ok, so there's crepes for you two," she said, giving Sergey and Susie some crepes, "And a slice of cake for the rest of you," handing out slices of cakes to the others. It was then she noticed the group, "FLORA! TOBY! SYLVIA! WILL! SERENITY!" she squealed, as she tackled Fluttershy to the ground.

"Good to see you too, Penny," Fluttershy said, remembering Pinkie's alias.

"IT'S BEEN SO LONG SINCE WE'VE SEEN EACH OTHER!" Pinkie then started speaking at a mile a minute, gasping for breath every five minutes.

"Well, ain't y'all a sight for sore eyes," the sound of Applejack's voice said. Turning, they all saw the others, looking happy to see their friends.

"Serenity! How have you been?" Charity asked, embracing her shy friend.

"Things have been going well," Serenity whispered.

"You look well too, Toby, Sylvia," Josh commented.

"Yeah. Things have been great here in Alola!" Toby replied.

"We've encountered so many Pokémon that even Will hasn't met before," Silver Spoon added.

"Got any to show us?" Mike asked.

"Yeah, here are two of mine," Toby said, releasing his Pokémon, which consisted of Lycanroc, Pikachu, Turtonator, Eevee, Espeon, and Kirlia.

"Oh, cool!" Vibrant commented.

"I have quite a few myself too," Silver Spoon said, as she released her Lycanroc, as well as Azumarill, Magneton, an Eevee, Monferno, and Wartortle.

"I have as well," Fluttershy said, releasing her Lycanroc, Crabrawler, Onix, Zorua, Larvitar, and Primarina.

"Whoa, are these three the same Pokémon?" Nathan asked, looking at the Lycanroc.

"Yes. Mine is known as a Midnight Form Lycanroc," Toby replied.

"Mine is called Midday Form," Silver Spoon added.

"And Flora here has an extremely rare Dusk Form Lycanroc," Will added.

"What about you Will? You catch any new Pokémon?" Cadence asked.

"Of course. See for yourself!" Will said, releasing Decidueye, Hariyama, Grimer, Marowak, Goodra, and Phantump.

"That Grimer and Marowak look different than the ones we've seen," Clover commented.

"Apparently, this is what's known as an Alolan Form Pokémon. That means they look differently here than in any other region," Nathan replied.

"What about you Serenity? Ya have to at least caught SOME new Pokémon?" Season asked. Serenity then sent out Lopunny, Charjabug, Misdreavus, Eevee, Chubbykins, and Buizel.

"Not a bad line up," Mike commented.

"How about you guys? Got any new Pokémon yourselves?" Will asked, as the five trainers recalled their Pokémon.

"Of course! Here's one o' mah Pokémon!" Nathan said, releasing what appeared to be a set of twin swords, holding their scabbards.

"Ah, a Doublade. Not bad," Will commented.

"We also caught some Psychic Pokémon," Shining Armor said, as he and Cadence released a pair of cat Pokémon. Shining's was a blue cat, while Cadence had a white one.

"A pair of Meowstic. And both of different genders," Will said.

"How about this big one?" Josh asked, releasing a Heracross, "I remember seeing this one at your ranch, and I wanted to catch one for myself," he explained.

"Not bad. Looks like a real contender," Will commented. From their tables, the Bandit Star Pirates were in awe at the Pokémon that the Equestria crew were showing off.

"Oh man, look at all of those rare Pokémon from other regions!" Davis commented.

"I know! Maybe coming here wasn't such a bad idea after all," Busujima said, as he savored his sundae.

"Well, we should see if these chumps are willing to do some trading," Davis suggested.

"By the way Toby, how about we trade Pokémon? I'll give you this Scyther I caught at a Bug Catching Contest. You can give me any Pokémon you want," Crystal offered, releasing a green mantis Pokémon with scythe like claws.

"Well, if you want, I could trade my Shroomish for it?" Toby offered.

"Sounds reasonable," Crystal said, as they approached the trading machine. Toby accessed his Storage, and selected Shroomish for a trade.

"Hang on there. Crystal, give this to Scyther. There'll be a surprise in it when ya both are done with tradin'," Nathan said, giving Crystal a strange, metallic cylinder.

"What's that thing?" Lynn asked.

"A Metal Coat. It boosts the power of Steel Type Moves. And when given to Onix or Scyther, when traded, they'll evolve into a Scizor or Steelix," Will explained. Crystal then gave the item to Scyther before recalling the bug Pokémon, and placing it on the machine. With a pull of the switch, the exchange began. Toby got Scyther, and Crystal got Shroomish. Toby then changed Espeon out for Scyther, and both trainers released their Pokémon. Upon materializing, Scyther immediately began evolving into Scizor.

"That's so cool!" Lana exclaimed.

"Scizor, the Pincer Pokémon, a Bug and Steel Type. It's heavy claws are more suitable for smashing opponents, rather than grabbing them. It's body is encased in a steel like exoskeleton," Rotom said.

"Thanks so much for Scyther, or rather, Scizor," Toby said.

"No problem. Thank you for Shroomish. I really liked the way the Breloom back at Will's ranch looked, and I wanted to catch one for myself," Crystal replied.

"If you guys are really into trading, then how about showing us what you have to offer?" they turned to see the Pirates standing before them.

"Watch your backs, some of these guys are trouble," Lynn warned.

"Tell me something. Do any of you have a Graveler that appears differently in other regions than in Alola? Then I want to trade for one of MY Graveler," Davis proposed, releasing the Pokémon in question. It looked to be a boulder with four arms, two of which were fused with it's body, and chunks of orange minerals in it's body.

"I'm willing to trade my Sandshrew for a Ground Type Sandshrew!" Chaz exclaimed. Chaz said, releasing his Alolan Sandshrew.

"They seem eager to trade Pokémon," Celestia commented.

"Ah have a Graveler," Applejack said, releasing her Graveler.

"Whoa, this one doesn't have any eyebrows, or minerals in it's body!" Davis exclaimed.

"I have a Sandslash, if you're still willing to trade," Josh offered, releasing a large, spikey porcupine Pokémon.

"Sweet! Just wish I had an Ice Stone to give you," Chaz scratched the back of his head.

"Perhaps I could be of assistance with that," they all turned to see Olivia, carrying five sacks in her arms, "Good thing I caught up with you lot. Here's your other reward for clearing the Grand Trial," she said, presenting the five trainers with a sack each.

"What's in them?" Will asked.

"See for yourself," Olivia urged. Looking inside, the trainers saw all manner of evolution stones.

"Whoa! You're really just giving these to us?!" Toby exclaimed.

"Of course. Consider them a little souvenir from Akala Island," Olivia replied casually. Will sifted through, eventually finding what he thought was an Ice Stone.

"This is an Ice Stone, correct?" he asked, showing it to Chaz.

"Yeah, that's it! Using one of those on an Alolan Vulpix or Sandshrew will make them evolve into Ninetails or Sandslash," Chaz replied. With that, the trainers all began trading their Pokémon. Toby and Silver Spoon went to the sidelines, and brought out both their Eevee.

"Eevee, would you like to evolve into a Flareon?" Toby asked, holding a Fire Stone.

"You have the same option too Eevee, only I would like it if you became a Jolteon," Silver Spoon said, holding a Thunder Stone. Both Eevee leaped up to the stones, which then triggered their evolution. Toby's Eevee became a Flareon, and Silver Spoon's became a Jolteon.

"Way too cool," Toby commented, hugging his newly evolved Flareon.

"Looks like Ms. Fluttershy is trying to power up her Onix," Silver Spoon commented, seeing that Fluttershy had just given her Onix a Metal Coat, provided by Rainbow Dash, and traded it with Princess Luna, receiving a Boldore in exchange. Upon both of them, releasing their Pokémon, Onix and Boldore both evolved simultaneously into Steelix and a large, quadruped boulder Pokémon, respectively.

"Onix has evolved into Steelix, and Boldore has evolved into a Gigalith," Will explained.

"Gigalith, the Compressed Pokémon, a Rock Type. It stores up sunlight to use as energy. It is usually found deep underground. Steelix, the Iron Snake Pokémon, a Steel and Ground Type. Because it lives even further underground then Onix, Steelix's body is harder than any known metal," Rotom said.

"Well, that's good to know," Fluttershy commented, as they traded back their Pokémon.

"Well, if you guys are all done with trading Pokémon, some of us would like to get in some battle practice!" Busujima snarled.

"Alright, Ah'll be your opponent!" Nathan volunteered, as both trainers took their places, "How does a three on three match sound?" Nathan suggested.

"Makes no difference to me. I will crush you like every other trainer I've faced in my journey!" Busujima declared, sending out his Salandit.

"A new Pokémon..... this may put me at a slight disadvantage, but Ah can work with this. It looks to be a Poison Type, so Doublade should be a good match up," Nathan said, releasing Doublade.

"That thing looks like a Ghost and Steel Type. This guy is really stupid if he thinks that'll stop Salandit," Busujima commented, "You can have the first move!" he declared.

"Alright, Doublade, let's get our power ready ta go with Swords Dance!" Nathan declared. Doublade then summoned a bunch of glowing swords that circled around it. Doublade then glowed red.

"Swords Dance is a move that increases Attack Power, right?" Lincoln asked.

"Yep. Looks like Nathan wants to make the first move count," Will replied.

"Alright, now, use Shadow Claw!" the Texas boy instructed. Glowing purple, the blades on Doublade began slashing at Salandit, who effortlessly dodged.

"What a waste. Salandit, use Toxic!" Busujima ordered, much to the confusion of everyone, as Salandit fired the attack, which managed to badly poison Doublade.

"But I thought Poison Type attacks didn't work on Steel Types?" Leni questioned.

"Salandit's special ability: Corrosion. It allows the user to poison even Steel or Poison Type Pokémon," Rotom explained.

"Ya gotta be kiddin'! My Steel Type against a Poison Type Strategy backfired?!" Nathan exclaimed.

"Now, let's use our full power!" Busujima ordered, as he began to do the pose for Fire Type Z moves.

"What's with all that dancing around?" Shining Armor asked.

"You're all about to witness a Z Move," Will replied, as Salandit became enveloped in Z Power.

"Alright Salandit, use Inferno Overdrive!" Busujima ordered. Salandit then built up the Fire attack, and fired it at Doublade, causing a massive explosion, that managed to finish off Doublade.

"That was nuts! Thanks Doublade, you were great out there!" Nathan said, recalling the Sword Pokémon. Busujima did the same with Salandit, "Alright, Z Moves look ta pack a serious punch. But Ah doubt he'll be able to use something that powerful a second time. If that's the case, then mah next Pokémon will be..... Ninjask!" he exclaimed, sending out Ninjask.

"Tauros, squash that bug!" Busujima said, releasing his Tauros.

"A bug against a bull? That's a no brainer on who'll win!" Lynn huffed.

"We'll see," Cadence replied.

"Alright Ninjask, use Double Team, then into Swords Dance!" after-images of Ninjask began appearing, as Ninjask also used Swords Dance.

"Double Team boosts a Pokémon's ability to dodge oncoming attacks. Add that to Swords Dance, and Nathan may have the best striker Pokémon yet," Will commented.

"Tauros, use Work Up!" Busujima ordered. Tauros then glowed red, as it's Attack Power and Speed increased, "Now, use Shock Wave!" Tauros then fired off an electrical attack, that looked to home in on Ninjask.

"Quick, use Dig, and get away!" Nathan instructed. Ninjask quickly burrowed underground, dodging the electric attack.

"Good call. Shock Wave is a move that never misses. But if a Pokémon were to use a move like Dig or Phantom Force, then the move is useless," Will commented, as Ninjask came up from the ground, and struck Tauros, causing major damage.

"Now, use Fury Cutter, back ta back!" Nathan instructed. Ninjask's claws then began glowing red, as it charged swiftly at Tauros and began slashing at it.

"Whoa, where'd that speed come from?!" Lola asked.

"It's Ninjask's Speed Boost ability. It increases the Pokémon's speed quite a bit. As for Fury Cutter, it get's stronger the more it's used," Will replied, as Tauros was knocked out by Ninjask.

"Nice work buddy!" Nathan praised Ninjask, before recalling it, as Busujima did with Tauros.

"That movement was kind of like an actual ninja," Lincoln commented.

"Ironically, that is what Ninjask is classified as; the Ninja Pokémon," Rotom stated.

"I have to admit, you're not half bad. You'll provide a much better challenge for me than that luck obsessed jock that tried battling me with the four eyes' Mawile this morning," Busujima commented. Lynn was furious at his comment, while Toby looked a little hurt by Busujima's nasty words.

"Well, Ah don't rely on luck. Ah only rely on pure skill, through and through," Nathan replied.

"Likewise. Now here's my last Pokémon, go Shelgon!" Busujima yelled, releasing his Shelgon.

"A Shelgon. That shell is gonna be tricky to get through, but thankfully, I have the perfect Pokémon for it. Now go, Floette!" Nathan said, releasing a small, fairy Pokémon that was holding a red flower.

"That's what he's going in with?! Something that wimpy can't do anything against Shelgon!" Lynn exclaimed.

"Don't be so quick to judge. Floette is a Fairy Type Pokémon, so Dragon Types like Shelgon are not only extremely vulnerable to them, but Dragon Type Moves are ineffective against Fairy Types," Will explained.

"Shelgon, use Iron Head!" Busujima ordered. Shelgon then charged slowly at Floette, the top of it's head turning metallic.

"Steel Type moves on the other hand are a different story," Will added.

"Since Shelgon's so slow, Ah can take advantage o' that! Floette, dodge, then use Moonblast!" Nathan instructed. Floette then fired of the Fairy Type attack at one of Shelgon's blind spots, causing massive damage, "Now, use Fairy Wind, keep up the pressure!" he added. Floette began blowing an odd, mystical wind, which seemed to damage Shelgon even further.

"Shelgon may not last much longer if this keeps up," Rainbow Dash commented. And she was right. Shelgon had reached it's limit, and fell to the floor, unconscious.

"Phew, ya made me work for that win!" Nathan admitted.

"I'll admit, you are talented. I can see why your Pokémon are quite strong," Busujima replied, recalling Shelgon.

"How about you battle next Sergey? You can mop the floor with any of these guys!" Susie exclaimed. Sergey then pointed to Toby.

"You.. want to battle me?" Toby asked. Sergey nodded, as he took his position on the battlefield, and sent out a lizard Pokémon with a large scale on the top of it's head.

"Jangmo-o, the Scaly Pokémon, a Dragon Type. They prefer to live in the mountains far from people. The sound of their clashing scales can be heard throughout the valley," Rotom said.

"Just like Sergey, he wastes no time with Dragon Type Pokémon," Will commented.

"Ok, in that case, Kirlia, let's go!" Toby said, sending out his Kirlia. And with that, the battle commenced.

Later, at the Pokémon Center,

"Wow, I had no idea that Tsareena and Torracat used to belong to that Busujima guy," Josh commented, as the kids were all exchanging stories.

"Yeah. He saw them as laughably weak, and abandoned them without question. But I was more than happy to take them in. And now, they're both real contenders!" Toby replied.

"And we've all become regular pros almost instantly. We caught some rather interesting Pokémon, like Toby's Turtonator," Fluttershy added.

"Well, it looks like you'll be going all the way, am I right, Toby?" Mike asked.

"Yeah. I want to see how far I can get in the Island Challenge," Toby replied.

"What'll your next stop be then?" Rarity asked.

"Most likely this island," Will replied, pointing to a larger island with a snowcapped mountain.

"That's Ula'Ula Island, the largest island in Alola!" Rotom explained.

"From what the festival organizers said, that's going to be our next stop too," Twilight replied.

"Then maybe we'll all meet up there. But before we do, we have to go find Faba tomorrow," Will stated.

"Who?" Charity asked, trying her hardest to stay awake.

"He works for a big corporation called the 'Aether Foundation'. Apparently, he wants to show us something," Silver Spoon replied.

"Well, let's all make sure to meet up somewhere on Ula'Ula Island," Will proclaimed.

"Malie City has a docking bay, so we can probably meet up some where there," Rotom stated.

"You know, I think that's where they said we would be setting up shop next," Nyx replied.

"Ok, well, we'd better get some rest. We'll have a big day tomorrow," Will stated.

"Ok. If we don't see you all in the morning, we'll meet up at Malie City," Celestia said, as the others went to leave.

"You guys staying somewhere else?" Will asked.

"The organizers rented a big hotel for volunteers like us to use," Princess Luna replied.

"GOOD NIGHT!" everyone said.

"We'd better turn in for the night too," Will said, as they all made their way to their rooms. However, Lynn appeared to still be in a foul mood about this morning.

'What gives that Busujima guy the right to talk smack to me like that?! I don't loose! He just got lucky when he beat me this morning, and that was just a fluke!' she thought to herself, as she and her siblings entered their bedrooms. As Lincoln was getting ready to crawl into bed, Lynn rudely shoved him off.

"Hey, what gives Lynn?!" the lone brother demanded.

"Get out," Lynn stated coldly, as she commandeered the bed for herself. This caught the attention of the other sisters.

"Excuse me?" Lincoln asked.

"You heard me! I don't what someone who makes me look bad in the same room as me! You should've lost that battle against Davis this morning!" Lynn stated, jabbing Lincoln's chest, a little too roughly.

"Lynn, what is your problem?!" Lori demanded.

"My problem is that I'm a winner, and Stinkcoln is a looser! And yet, this morning when we borrowed those Pokémon, I lost and he won! That's not supposed to happen!" Lynn yelled, getting red in the face from anger.

"Statistically speaking, Lincoln actually had a much higher probability of winning, not to mention not looking like a buffoon, than you did. He made snap judgements with Lycanroc, while you wasted time with your ridiculous luck rituals," Lisa stated nonchalantly.

"Plus, you did embarrass Toby's Mawile too," Luna Loud added.

"So you're all saying it's my fault I lost?!" Lynn was outraged.

"We're saying that these Pokémon Battles appear to rely less on luck, and more on the trainer's judgements, something Lincoln showed very well, and you lacked entirely," Lucy replied.

"But if I don't do my Good Luck Rituals, I can't win anything!" Lynn argued.

"Lynn, we're not about to have another Bad Luck incident like last time! Mom and Dad were super mad when they found out that you threatened Linky to go to your game, and then turned right around and blamed him! I haven't see them that angry since they outlawed the Sister Fight Protocol!" Lola exclaimed.

"Or the time we stole all that chocolate he was going to use for the school fair," Lana added.

"Well, that was Stinkcoln's fault! He knows ALL chocolate is fair game without a note!" Lynn snapped a little harsher than she intended.

"Well, Mom and Dad made it clear that wasn't the case," Luna countered.

"Lynn, I literally don't know what your problem is with our brother, but you'd better get it sorted out soon, because we're not about to have our friends embarrassed for your stupid actions!" Lori commanded in her drill sergeant tone.

"Whatever. Do what ever you want," Lynn bitterly snapped, as she went to sleep.

"Come dear brother, you can use the bunk above my bed," Lisa offered. Lincoln accepted, as he climbed to the top bunk. The other sisters all crawled into bed themselves, some of them sharing beds with others.
