Well, Amelia found the Shedinja, at least she thought it was the same Shedinja, but she also found the person she was looking forward to meeting the least. It was the woman from the night before, the one who had been giving off such a dark and oppressive aura. Worse, yet, it seemed the woman had found the Shedinja again and seemed to have noticed Amelia, who took a step back on instinct. However, she was quick to pick up that the Aura that had surrounded the woman before seemed to be subdued now. Before she could even finish her thoughts, the woman began speaking, her words as cryptic as she remembered from the night before. Needless to say, she didn't understand.
"I don't know what you're trying to say but let Shedinja go
!" She said to the woman, her voice shaking a bit despite her best efforts. This woman was on her master's level in terms of strength, so if the woman didn't comply, there was really nothing Amelia could do.
Thankfully, it seemed the woman wasn't after the Bug/Ghost pokemon. However, it seemed she was after Amelia as she advanced in a manner that Amelia found rather menacing, causing the young girl to take another step back. Before anything could happen though, another voice rang out, one Amelia faintly remembered, though it seemed to be enough to cause the woman to stop. Jacques had appeared with another woman, one Amelia barely remembered from the night before. Before she knew it, Amelia got to learn some nice tidbits about Angelique, such has her being one of the Elite Four among all things. Before she knew it, Angelique was leaving the garden under pressure from her apparent superior, stopping only to lob a pokeball at Amelia, who barely managed to catch it.
Once Angelique was out of the garden, Amelia let out a sigh of relief and slowly sunk to the ground, feeling a bit weak in the knees. Jacques would then approach her, apologizing for all that Angelique had done while also making a request for any information Amelia might know on Angelique's actions.
"I'm not sure I'll be of much use to you Mr. Jacques
." She said, looking up at the older gentleman. "I met her the first time I came here, sensing the Shedinja over there. But, to say there was a battle between me and her would be a lie. It was between my teacher and her. He was also with us when we arrived at the tombs. All I know is that the pokemon in there were in a frenzy so that they could release their master from his seal, a Darkrai. The presence of Team Virtue and their Cresselia only made things worse. It was just pure pandemonium. I never saw Angelique there herself though
With her part being said, Amelia glanced down at the pokeball that had been handed to her. She contemplated opening it, especially since she would sense there was a ghost-type inside. Knowing there was a risk but not caring, as she was willing to risk grabbing the strings/hands of a wild Driffloon after all, she let the pokemon out of the pokeball and was pleasantly surprised to see a Spiritomb inside. It fixed it's gaze on Amelia before sending a sudden telepathic message. Amelia clutched her head in pain, since it was like her head was suddenly filled with a chorus of voices all speaking at once, though thankfully it was the same message from every voice. When it finished, she looked up at the Spiritomb and blinked, realizing it had translated what Angelique had been saying to her earlier. Amelia herself was a Clairvoyant, Joshua was the Sentinel, and Angelique must've been hoping for the events that had transpired in the Old Tombs to turn out how they had.
This left Amelia with some questions but she knew one thing was for certain. She needed to get stronger and even Angelique wanted her to do so. Not only that, but Amelia herself wanted to get stronger as well, so that she would not be so helpless if such events happened again. Judging by the words of the Spiritomb, it seemed that the next event that might occur was at the Known Ruins. Getting to her feet, she returned the Spiritomb to it's pokeball and watched as it vanished in a flash of light, the new pokemon becoming her ninth party member. Knowing what she wanted and what her goals were now, she turned to Jacques.
Now came the dilemma of telling him what she knew. Jacques seemed like a kind enough person and reliable as well. But this was apparently meant to be a trial for her, set forth by another member of the Elite Four. She was obviously supposed to do it herself, so she had to tell him what she knew without revealing too much. She had to select her words carefully, even if it meant a bit of lying.
"It seems, according to Spiritomb, Angelique has some sort of trial planned for me. I don't know where or when, but I guess she has some sort of plan. Other then that, all it told me was that I need to get stronger.
" She said to Elite Four member. "So, I need to go off and start training it seems, so that I'll be stronger. Before I go though, I do have some questions for you Mr. Jacques. Do you know who is in charge of the PC system and where I might be able to find them? I... I don't like being separated from my friends and I want to see if there is some way I can at least keep them all with me, while still having it so I can only use six to battle.
