Demealla blinked as the flare died out, wondering what had just happened at the time. Everyone was still present and in place, although Trip was now acting more extraordinarily peculiar than ever.
Peppy was giggling as if he had just heard the funniest joke that had ever been crafted, while Ash was busy staring at the couch.
"Peppy, no need to scramble Trip's brain any further," Demealla told the Zorua. "He's already crazy enough as it is."
Demealla turned to look at Ash, and saw him tackle the white couch as if he was playing football.
Peppy snickered as Ash held onto the cushion, and tried to secure himself tightly. "What the heck are you doing?" the Zoroark blurted out rudely.
Ash looked up in embarrassment and closed his eyes shamefully. "I forgot how to sit..." the Pokemon trainer admitted. Demealla's eyes widened at the comment and began watering in response.
One second later, the Zoroark began laughing like a lunatic, falling to her knees and struggling to keep herself from rolling all over the place. "Come on, Adam," Trip told the Zoroark. "Don't make fun of him."
Demealla's laughter soon died out, as the illusion fox stood up and regained control of herself, while Shadow leaped out of the boat next to her.
"She has every right to insult him," the anthropomorphic entity told him. "Ash tends to hamper our missions and makes them more difficult than they need to be. That, and he has a habit of breaking into my room and stealing my motorcycles from our garage. His idiocy also gets on my nerves."
Trip gave Shadow a look of sadness, and looked as if he was about to stand up for Ash before the idiotic young man interjected his own statement. "What's a motorcycle?" Ash asked the hedgehog.
"See?" Shadow said to Trip, pointing his eyes in Ash's direction. "He's a total moron." Ash struggled to break free of the couch, though he was failing miserably. "Hey! I'm not a moron...! Err...whatever that is...I just have trouble with stuff!" Ash retorted angrily.
"This coming from the guy who can't even sit on a couch properly..." Shadow snorted in response.
"Okay, enough! Stop with the bickering already!" Trip interrupted firmly. "Adam, show Bob how to sit on the couch. Mario, come look at the Italy pictu-AGH!"
Shadow punched Trip in the area where his privates were placed, and proceeded to deliver several painful kicks to the vital parts of his legs.
After a few more painful attacks, Trip fell to the floor in the fetal position. "You, me, Pokemon battle, NOW!" the hedgehog demanded brutally.
Trip suddenly stood up quickly, as if nothing had happened to him. "Mario, why are you being such a jerk tonight?" he asked the angry creature as if his feelings were hurt.
"Goth-hog's always like that," the Zoroark answered for him. "He doesn't like anyone that irritates him. You should see what he did to the annoying orange."
"What's the annoying orange?" Ash queried mindlessly. "I'll tell you after the Pokemon battle, okay Bob?" Trip responded.
"If I let you live, that is," Shadow told Trip, smiling maliciously. "And I highly doubt that will be the case."
A few minutes later, the living room was now virtually empty, with the exception of the boat, which Demealla did not remove from the area.
Demealla was serving as the referee for the battle, while Ash and Grace were sitting on the white couch watching the upcoming scene. "This is going to be humiliating," Grace sighed distressingly. "...For him."
Ash sat upside-down, cross-eyed from an odd reason. "Your face looks funny from here," he said in a heedless way. "You kinda look like the ceiling."
Shadow looked at Ash in disgust, and clutched a black pokeball tightly. "Let's see what this pixie's got for us..." the hedgehog whispered to himself.
Trip tossed a pair of pokeballs into the air, and sent out a Roserade and Jumpluff out onto the make-shift arena.
The two grass-type Pokemon touched the floor, and made happy giggles as they saw their opponents. "I'll be your second Pokemon!" Peppy told Shadow, leaping in front of him.
Shadow looked down at the Zorua, and grinned at the prospect. "Good," Shadow muttered with a grin, throwing the black pokeball in the air. "Absol, come out!"
The spherical capsule opened to spit out a flash of light, and revealed the Pokemon that Shadow had chosen to be his newer partner. The Absol blinked a few times, showing his blood-red eyes that seemed to glow as if lit from within.
"yo wats up homies," the Absol spoke with a slurred accent. "mah nam's abzol, adn ima heres to hepls meh frend shadow lolz"
Demealla looked at the Absol as if she had just seem something more frightening than a ghost. "What...the...hell?" she mumbled in fear. "Why is he talking like that?"
Absol looked at Demealla with an angry glare. "Yo dat aint rite 2 makin funz of mah way i tlk," he responded to the Zoroark. "Iz gonna speek teh wy i wnat, k?"
Peppy glanced at Absol, his left-eye twitching in response. "Did he visit Brock's youtube channel?" the Zorua asked Shadow.
"No," the anthropomorphic creature replied. "He broke into the fridge and ate Dawn's 'special surprise' for dinner."
"None of Ash's ladies can cook right, eh?" Demealla commented with a sly grin. "Okay losers, are you ready?! BEGIN!"
Shadow watched Trip dancing in a vagarious pattern, and knew his team had an opening when Trip's Pokemon turned around to eagerly receive an order.
"Perfect," the hedgehog whispered under his breath. "Alright Absol, use fury cutter on that wine-snob!"
"uz gots ti boss," Absol complied, charging at Trip as the blade on his head glowed with a white shine. Trip turned around and saw Absol lunging at him, and formed a frightening facial expression.
"Jumpluff, Roserade, SAVE ME!" Trip screamed, running toward the kitchen. Before either of the grass type Pokemon could react, Absol sliced Trip's left leg in half, causing the homosexual-esq man to fall down on the floor.
Strangely enough, blood did not flow out of the wounds on Trip's body, the result happened to be the limb liquefying in its disembodied state.
"Jumpluff, use stun spore on Mario!" Trip instructed, pointing at Shadow as his pants were turning into liquid as well.
"Pluff?" the grass-type Pokemon squeaked, not understanding its master. "You don't know who I'm talking about?" Trip asked his Pokemon.
"Zorua, use fire blast on that floating plant!" Shadow commanded ruthlessly. Peppy glanced at Shadow and had a devious smile form on his furry face, looking back at Trip to see him exhibiting more of his bizarre behavior.
"You know what? Jumpluff, that's it, I think you should leave!" Trip said with a nasty growl. Jumpluff was clearly confused at the statement, not knowing how to react. "We invited you over, but this is just not working out."
"He's acting exactly the same way as he does in the game...!" Peppy giggled cutely.
The tricky fox Pokemon opened his mouth as wide as he could, and gave life to a sphere of black fire inside of his mouth, one which grew rapidly every second.
"Pluff?" the cottonweed Pokemon mumbled in confusion. Just as the sphere of black fire reached its size limit, Peppy launched the fire blast at Trip's Pokemon, causing the human to yelp effeminately in fear.
Roserade quickly pushed Jumpluff out of the way, and was struck by the bolt of black fire. Absol quickly leaped in front and used Jumpluff as a shield, successfully protecting himself from the upcoming explosion.
The fire blast detonated like a downsized C4 explosive, eradicating Roserade's body in the blast and turning it into burning fragments of red/orange ashes, while Jumpluff was lumped together with the dramatic event.
When the flash cleared, the apartment was filled with smoke until the room's filters kicked in and sucked it out of the air.
As the smoke was removed from the air, Shadow made a 'hmph' sound as he saw the dessicated remains of Trip's Roserade, which was now basically heaps of ashes spread out across the room.
Jumpluff was still alive, although it was hiding in a corner after watching its friend's destruction.
Demealla snickered at the one-sided battle, and prepared to announce the winner. "Alright!" the Zoroark shouted. "It looks like since Roserade got blown up, and that Jumpluff is too scared to fight, Shadow's team wins!"
Grace was the first one to applaud Shadow's victory, while Ash was still busy trying to figure out how to sit correctly.
"Not bad for a little Zorua," the hedgehog said to Peppy, making him giggle. "But then again, I shouldn't be surprised that this fairy can't be an adequate Pokemon trainer. After all, his alcohol is partly made out of LSD."
Peppy turned around and leaped back into the boat, burying himself into Demealla's mane as he did.
"I don't get it, what happened?" Ash asked Grace in confusion. "Didn't you pay any attention to that battle?" the lesbian-like woman responded.
"What's a battle?" Ash inquired stupidly. Grace stood up from the couch and reached into her pocket, pulling out something that looked like a joint. "I'll be back in a few hours..." she told everyone with her usually grim tone.
"Grace, where are you going?" Trip asked with moderate concern. "I'm going to smoke in the kitchen," she replied. "I'll be back when I feel better...Which probably won't be for a long time."
Shadow crossed his arms at the statement, turning to face Demealla with a frustrated look in his eyes. "Can we go home NOW?" he asked with a cold tone. "Wait, Mario, you're not thinking of leaving, are you?" Trip asked with worry.
"hey wat cn we sey" Absol said to the odd man. "u anoyin u kno? u gets on my buds nerves"
Shadow took a glance at Trip's body, and noticed that his clothing was slowly turning into a form of organic mud, with multiple tubes that seemed to resemble veins and arteries.
Trip's liquefied flesh slowly filled the linings that made up the interior of his hardening clothes, which led Shadow to believe that the human was transforming into some sort of plant.
"Mario, you can't leave me here like this!" the odd human whimpered. "Who's going to look at my photo of Italy with me, and save me from turning into...whatever this is?!"
Shadow climbed into the boat, waving for Absol to follow him. "Deal with it..." the hedgehog told Trip harshly.
"yoz boss," Absol said once he made his way onto the deck. "wat abot azh" Shadow sat down into port-side chair, and got out his iPhone, proceeding to play Angry Birds once again.
"What about him...?" he replied, clearly not caring about the Pokemon trainer. Absol pointed his left forepaw at Ash, who was now struggling to get off the couch. "I'll take of it-" Demealla told the two, brandishing the Chaos Emerald they had.
Shadow saw the Zoroark focusing her energy on the jewel as tightly as she could, and then resumed his attention to the game he was playing.
"CHAOS CONTROL!" the Zoroark shouted, tossing the emerald up in the air and grabbing it one second later, triggering a flare of white light that consumed the apartment.
The hiss of electrical fuzz was heard for a few seconds, followed by the sound of the boat splashing as it hit the water outside of the apartment tower.
Peppy jumped out of his mother's mane, and opened his eyes to see that they were in the rivers of Hydro City once again.
Tee hee! I enjoyed that, Peppy giggled in his thoughts. Now to go home for some rest. The Zorua looked behind himself, and saw that Absol was still outside of his pokeball, while Shadow was once again occupied with his game.
"yoz bos wheres azh" the disaster Pokemon asked his master. "I don't care," Shadow answered quietly.
Peppy then heard the sound of Ash flopping about in the cabin, thinking he was in the water once again. "There he is..." the Zorua sighed with relief.
Absol gradually strolled into the boat's cabin, looking like he had a question pulsing in his mind. "yo azh, whures pikachew?" the dark type Pokemon inquired. "Huh?" Ash replied dully.
"u kno," Shadow's comrade continued. "ur first pokman, pikachew! were'd u put him, es he sitll hom?"
Ash managed to lay down on the bed correctly, and struggled to make eye contact with Absol.
"What?" Ash responded with a dumb look on his face. "He wants to know where Pikachu is, Ash!" Peppy told the confused human.
"What's a Pikachu?" Ash asked the Zorua with a slurred tone. Shadow briefly discontinued playing his game, giving Ash a dirty glare of disappointment with a blatant frown on his face. "You're kidding..." he whispered under his breath.
Demealla patted Shadow on the head as if the hedgehog was one of her own children.
"Relax, goth-hog!" the Zoroark chuckled rudely. "You know Ashy-boy by now, he's always been like this!"
"...And he just keeps getting worse," Shadow added to the statement. "Every single day..."
As the Absol continued the awkward conversation with Ash, the group set off to return to their new-found home, all eagerly awaiting to settle down and go to sleep after the strange evening came to a close.
The sky was now blackened from the sun setting beneath the sky, allowing the stars to blanket the scenery above, along with the moon that shined like a cream-colored jewel in the night.
A wonderful city had been discovered, an odd pair had been revealed to the world, and potential annoyance had been silenced.
Now, the group had left the scene and prepared to rest for the next series of events that would unfold, many which would have a grand effect on the world that awaited them.
