    [Beta] {Cave Canem}

    Once Cave Canem was certain that he could track the enemy and give them the punishment they so rightly deserved, the rush of battle began to leave him. The norepinephrine began to wear off, and his concerns changed to the condition of his owner.

    The puppy dashed to the young man's side, looking at the wound in surprise. Circling the body, he realized there was little he could do. Instead, he laid down at Pyrrhus's side, warming the body to help treat for shock. If his master was going to die, Cave would be at his side while it happened.

    "Awesome" Zane says, cracking his knuckles, "was worried that was all I'd get to fight today."

    He swings his flail experimentally, smiling at the chopper that he just hopes is full of bad guys.

    The chopper, as it indeed is, continues its approach. Passing overhead, deafeningly, it begins to circle the approximate area.

    Maximum has already retreated to the canopy, tentatively, and watches as the helicopter continues circling, black clad occupants inside pointing at the thick foliage blocking their view. Strapped in along with the men, she spots a plantlike pokemon, shaped like a pitcher with clinging vines holding it tightly in place and vacant eyes gazing down lazily. As far as she can tell of human body language some sort of argument seems to be going on inside the thing.

    Down on the floor, Gravitas clanks its way over to Pyrrhus' side. Knowing that it's not much for cuddling, it stands by, figuring brighter minds will know what to do.

    To that end, in case you don't know what the treatment is for Pyrrhus's condition....

    Treatment for Shock:

    1. Treat the cause, if possible (Marsh says the attack cauterized the wound, but Perry's probably bleeding in other places too)
    2. Keep the head down, elevate the legs
    3. Loosen tight clothing (belt, tie, straps, etc.) to reduce constriction of blood flow
    4. Keep the body warm (Cave's got that part taken care of)
    5. Monitor breathing and heartbeat and be prepared to administer CPR or rescue breathing if necessary
    6. Alert a medical treatment facility ASAP (this should be first, really)

    [Beta] [Ralph Colton] {Maximum Ride} {Bubbles the Steez}

    Ralph tried to shake free of his indecision and started acting. He wasn't quite sure if all he did was right but at least he was trying.

    First he tried to see if Pyrrhus was still alive. He tried to feel a heart beat, not hearing much he remembered that a pulse was also in the wrist. he checked Pyrrhus's still intact hand and thought he felt a week pulse.

    "Bubbles, can you fill up your hat with water, I'm going to wash out his wounds."

    Bubbles humbly tips his head froward, pushing the hat off with his tail. Using a weak water gun he fills it with some water.

    Ralph meanwhile dials the equivalent of 9-1-1 hoping to get someone who can help. Putting the styler on he sets it to speaker phone. While he waited for someone to pick up he he pulled of Pyrrhus's shirt, looking him over. Carefully he washed out the wounds with the water Bubbles had provided. Once he had done a semi-good job of cleaning the cauterized wound he took his own jacket and tore it up so that he could cover Pyrrhus's wounds.

    Finally he grabbed some rocks and piled them underneath Pyrrhus's legs. The head was most important so the blood should go to the brain, it worked that way with pokemon, why not people. He didn't think to remove Pyrrhus's belt however, or any other constricting elements.


    If someone picks up.

    "Hello? this is Ralph Colton, I am a Ranger, we need help and fast, we were attacked by three men and one of my friends is in serious condition. We are on the route from Pewter."

    Ralph tried to remember which way they were from Pewter and added whatever information he could to make locating them possible.


    For now Ralph is going to ignore the airship. Zane can handle it.

    What? Shawn's psychic?

    "I'm not in the mood for this 20 questions shit little man. I don't know if Shawn's psychic or not, and frankly I couldn't care less at the moment, just tell me why your searching for a psychic who fits his description and maybe I won't let Spike here pump you full of Poison Sting."

    Doug shoots a worried glance towards Shawn before getting back to business. "I'd appreciate it if you told me your overall goals and who you work for and all that crap, but that's really for the cops to find out, isn't it?"


    I would have posted earlier, but I had to get a new cable adapter.

    [11] Ralph does a passable job tending to Pyrrhus' wound, its been a while since first aid classes at Ranger school, but he makes due with what he can remember and it seems to help.

    Luckily his call for assistance is quickly answered by an officer, who takes what information Ralph can give before promising that help is already on the way. She reminds Ralph of some basic care for wounded victims, offering more suitable ways to help him if he can describe his injuries in detail. Staying on the line, she warns him not to move Pyrrhus unless they absolutely must.

    With a crash and near-tumble, Siegfried stumbles back onto the road about 50 feet away, covered in scratches and forest detritus.

    Above, in the helicopter, the occupants seem to come to a decision. One of them goes to the open door in the side of the copter as it steadies itself, hovering. Pulling a large, metal tube up onto he shoulder, he looks down the sights to the forest below. With a muted thump and puff of smoke, a large metal sphere is propeled from the tube down into Viridian Forest, to no apparent effect that Maximum can see, or that the group below notices.

    Motionly hastily to the pilot, the helicopter pulls up and away, traveling north from whence it came at great speed.

    "Our prisoner, holding for ransom. Richter family wouldn't do the smart thing and work with us, " the Grunt relents eventually, still glaring at his captor.

    "Team Rocket's back, you're all gonna pay for what happened to us."

    "Helps on the way!!" Ralph called out to whoever was in hearing distance."

    He stayed seated on the ground watching Pyrrhus nervously, he hoped he hadn't screwed something up. At least now he knew that he was right in not moving him. Bubbles hopped onto Ralph's lap to show his support in this sad moment.

    Poor Cave, what would happen if Pyrrhus died.... I should dwell on such things, Pyrrhus is going to be fine, at least Cave is staying calm, I'd hate to have to put him in a pokeball.[/I

    Maximum returned from her scouting and tried to communicate what she had seen. It didn't however seem very urgent so Ralph really only got that their was something in the sky and it dropped something.

    "Good job Maximum, keep it up, we're waiting for help, keep a sharp eye out for danger, who knows maybe they'll come back while we're weak."

    In as bad shape as he was, Pyrrhus managed to briefly regain consciousness. His eyes opened with a determination they had not possessed before. Too weak to even move his head, he looked at his left arm to see Cave sitting there.

    "Told... you... to run..." he whispered. Cave responded with a whimper and licked his face. He looked to Ralph for a moment. "Who... you got his name? Who... did this... to me?" Before Ralph or anyone could respond, his head lolled back and he relapsed into unconsciousness.

    Team Rockets going to bribe everyone at the trial and Shawn's going down for murder; and with such a young supple body, its likely that he'll be handling a lot of Pokeballs if you catch my drift.

    After a short wait, police arrive on the scene, taking the captured Rockets out of Shawn and Doug's Citizen's Arrest and into custody. They also quickly cover the body of the deceased Rocket.

    They take statements (or lack thereof as may be the case for Shawn) from the two Trainers, offering them blankets and a hot drink while prepping the Rocket Grunts for transport back to town. The air seems to be filled with a certain busyness on the part of the officers, hurrying about their work and packing things up with little conversation in the dark forest, lit only by flashlights and the occasional lantern.

    Finally, satisfied with the pairs recounting of events, at least for now, they offer to take the pair to the PokeCenter (where rooms would be available now that the rush of visitors to the museum has begun to slow down) or to any other residence they may have had in town.

    ~~ An Ambush! - Complete ~~

    Douglas Fir: Trainer Level 4
    - Belmont: Level 20! (Enhanced Training), Learned Razor Leaf!
    - Spike: Level 16! (Enhanced Training), Learned Focus Energy, Twineedle!
    Shawn Geller: Trainer Level 4
    - Spade: Level 18! Learned Shadow Sneak!
    - Archer: Level 15! Learned Wing Attack!
    Aleksandr Ruskidoichev: Trainer Level 4!

    Alex Skipps: Trainer Level 4!
    - Zeze the X: Level 17! Learned Odor Sleuth!
    Dayton Clark: Trainer Level 4!
    - Gondorff: Level 17!


    I think Dayton at least wanted to head Mt. Moon and Cerulean way with Ranger Ebert. Can start on that next, or after appropriate catching up of the split parties. (Nothing currently stopping Doug and Shawn from skipping town, they got your Trainer IDs if the police need to contact you.)


    [[vidURL=""]Beta[/vidURL]]

    The metal sphere tumbles end over end into the forest, ricocheting of a few branches and tree trunks on its way to the soft, leaf-carpeted ground. It rolls down a slight incline, coming to a stop in the crook of a tree's roots. Now motionless, we can see the red LED'd countdown on the side just about to reach 0:00.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The group settles down, with Pyrrhus stabilized for the moment being, impatiently waiting for help to arrive. Cave and Gravitas continue their watch over Pyrrhus, Maximum taking once again to the treetops to scout for danger, and Bubbles, seemingly immune to the seriousness of the situation, resumes a cheery march around the clearing, playing at being a guard.

    After a few circuits, he stops his impromptu performance and rushes back over to Ralph, hopping at his legs in an attempt to get picked up. As Ralph looks down at his noticeably spooked companion pokemon, he notices his hat still half-filled with bloodied water from cleaning Pyrrhus' wounds.

    There are ripples in the water. Looking closer, the ripples slowly die out, impacting the side of the hat with a small splash. A few seconds later, a new set of ripples spread out from the center of the makeshift vessel, then another, and so on, rhythmic as clockwork. Wrecker!, also quite sensitive to ground vibrations, is also growing nervous, looking to his trainer, Zane, for direction.

    Doug pulls one of the police officers to the side to put some space between them and Shawn.

    "Hey, officer, would you mind if I took in that orphaned Golbat? I know his trainer wasn't the best guy in the world, but I still feel kind of bad for it having to experience that."

    Doug rubs the back of his head.

    "I have some experience in dealing with poison types if that helps."

    "What's going? Zane, can Wrecker tell whats going on?"

    Ralph stood up holding Bubbles in his hands. Then looked back down at Pyrrhus.

    Whats going on? I could run, but what bout Pyrrhus, I can't leave him here.

    "Cave, stay here watch Pyrrhus, I'll be right back."

    Ralph quickly scanned the sky for Maximum.

    "MAXIMUM, where is this coming from, we need to find out whats causing this, it could kill Pyrrhus."

    Ralph started running towards Maximum.


    If Maximum can recognize the source of the earthquake, Ralph will head towards it carrying Bubbles.

    Maximum can easily see the source of the disturbance, though the actual cause is harder to realize in the dim light.

    What she can see is something massive, and bipedal. Moving through the forest as easy as a man through tall grass, brushing aside thick trees as though they weren't even there. Leaving a trail of tangible destruction behind it in the form of trampled plantlife and pokemon feeling for their lives.

    As she watches, the creature continues its rampage southward, its path heading almost directly to the dirt road where her trainer and charges are standing watch near the jeep.



    Edit: Oh, you've gotta be kidding me.

    [Beta] - [Sigi Richter]

    After a very harrowing and lucky encounter with the Rocket Grunt, Sigi winds up back at the point of departure. "Oh..."

    Sigi takes a moment to evaluate exactly what is going on: the man in the suit is badly injured, the excitable man is being somewhat excitable, and the kindly, albeit rather naive, ranger type seems like he's about to leave.

    Then a chill rushes down Sigi's spine, a familiar sensation. Several times in the past, as part of training, ferocious Pokemon had been used in "stampede scenarios." It was never pleasant, and the tremors gave that impression rather acutely. "Ummm, please don't leave," Sigi calls out to Ralph, hoping the ranger is still within earshot. "I don't think you want to go near whatever is making that noise!"

    On the way over to the jeep, Sigi trips over a black bag lying on the ground with the Team Rocket logo on it. Not questioning fate (as opposed to just admitting clumsiness), Sigi throws the bag into the back of the jeep and rushes over to check the engine.
