    5 hours of elapsed wagon time.

    Taylor and Gerald take a watch with you.

    Gerald gets up and stretches, ensuring the bindings on his arm are tight. Near him, a strange armor of kevlar and chainmail (one above the other) is taking form. A little way away, the steel booster laid in two parts, incorporated into a breastplate.
    "Ethan, you can feed Mjolnir more. Can spare 11 skorupi corpses for this, as last time I saw a beldum evolve, I was in a city."
    You take the first two. On first watch with you are Taylor and Arte, while on second there is just Mark.

    'Hey, how about I tell you a story.'
    He couldn't tell him most of his stories, but he had a few funny, child friendly ones. 'There was the time old man Fuji was chewing us out after we fell asleep our religious studies. So we snuck over to his house one night and painted a giant Jigglypuff mural on his wall. When he found out, he made all 5 of us dress in Hello Skitty clothing for the next week. It was worse than any beating he could have gave us. Then, just when I thought it was over, my sister told me she thought I looked cute in it, and so my mother forced me to wear it for ANOTHER week on top of that! We learned a valuable lesson that day, kind old men are the worst perple to piss off.'
    The kid chuckles. Between your story and the sparring between the two Pokemon he is completely distracted.

    "I'm gonna go sleep," he says, heading into a tent.

    Sorry, never gave XP.

    The Beldum unceremoniously strips each of the bodies of the metal. The first two make him a little wider, more disc like. The last three go into the construction of tiny arm-like appendages, creating the basics of what will be Metang's arms. While Mjolnir is nowhere near the right size, the basic shape is right. He still only has one eye.

    Mjolnir learns Metal Claw! Due to the frailty of his arms, he only adds 1/2 Attack and may not add STAB.

    You take the third watch.

    Before Watches

    The five of you manage to get some food; some stew, using what is left of the meat. Mark says that if you make good time that the wagons may reach Lavender tomorrow.

    Earthen walls about a meter tall are erected all around the camp with a gate at the front. The remaining wagons form a protective barrier around the tents, giving an added layer of protection.

    First Watch

    The sun slowly sets, but nothing of note happens. A few random shapes on Gerald's radar appear at short intervals, but nothing organized enough to be a swarm. Taylor and Arte make some small talk, but nothing major.

    Second Watch

    Fully dark now, it is just you and Mark. For about two hours nothing happens, but then more organized clusters of Pokemon appear on the radar.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Gerald gets five hours of worktime by the end of the first watch.

    "Mark, might have a mass swarm inbound. Can you take Arte's armor to her?"
    He points to the completed armor.
    "Don't think any of us're getting much sleep tonight."

    Arte

    You awake to Mark gently shaking your shoulder and handing you a piece of armor, all metal and some bullet-proof vest-like material. The breasts are the only solid metal part.

    "Skorupi. Get geared up. Wake the others," he says before heading outside.

    Gerald
    As you watch the blips, they don't advance. Instead they group, slowly forming a ring. While right now it only appears to be one or two Pokemon thick in most places, it is slowly thickening.

    "What are they doing?" Mark says, jogging up.

    Romeo and Arte
    The two of you have dreams similar to the ones last night; same setting, same people, everything.

    In Arte's this time Romeo turns your family against you, ending with him getting in close.

    "I could never love a freak like you," he says, stabbing you straight through the heart.

    In Romeo's, this time the kids attack you, clawing at you with tiny fingers, pulling you, Arte, and Elly under a wave of children.

    Artemis seemed to be in the middle of a dream when she was woken up. "...guh...wha...no...why- WHAT!? WHAT'S GOING ON!?" Artemis spasms and leaps up, hitting Mark with a gust of wind. "...sorry. Already? Merde, thought they would at least wait a bit." She shoos Mark out of her tent and changes into the armor. That dream again. And it's getting worse. Armor, focus. Keep your thoughts straight. Hm, nice, comfortable. Good as something besides her usual clothes. Shame it was a bit too showy for her. Gerald and Sparky did well on this. Have to thank them after the fight. After changing, Artemis gets up and wakes everyone."Skorupi are back! Everyone out of bed! If you were given a gun and incendiaries, grab it and load up!" Artemis lets Diluvium back out. Let's light them up like last time. The Castform gives a light burst of flame in response. Good, he's ready. "I said UP! Everyone!" The wake up call persists until everyone is either armed or grouped in a safe place.

    "Bigger walls could help," he says, looking at you and yelling at Taylor to do just that. A few seconds later, she starts raising them even more. "And if we just sit here, we'll be overrun. Seems like we're in bad shape."

    The line of the Skorupi is slighty thinner heading east towards Lavender... Could it be a trap, or a way out?

    By the time you're done getting your armor on, the rest of the camp is already roused and arming itself.

    Taylor and Jessica run up. "How the hell are we gonna hold out here?"

    Romeo rubs his eyes, waking up. He was starting to see the pattern in his dreams. He spends the day with Arte, Artemis kills him. He spends a day playing with Elly, and she kills him. Last night, he was caring for John, and that time it was the kids who killed him.

    'John! John!' called Romeo, looking out for the kid. Then he hears Arte calling. 'I never got a gun, someone mind tossing me one?' Once he gets his hands on one, he goes back to looking for the kid and ensures he's safe. Then he gets the new Vulpix out. If he could keep at range, her Fire attacks could help. Jist needed to make sure nothing hit her with a poison attack.

    "No Muking clue. The guns are just a reassurance to the merchants. They're nearly useless on these things. Focusing fire may be good." Various battle plans run through her mind. Bust holes in their numbers, try to run through- nope, lack the numbers to surround them. Fight at the edges and fall back when our numbers thin too much, keep them bunched up for the Bulldozes. Could work. They'd have to shoot past the other Skorupi. Wouldn't hurt them, but it could hurt their aim. No matter what, Willy needs to burrow out there and use Bulldoze on everything that he can. Ollie would have to pull a similar role here.

    John is safe; he, along with the Totodile and Bulbasuar kids, are right in the middle of the camp.

    A merchant hands you a gun, but it seems to have standard ammo.

    The Vulpix looks around, growling. It doesn't like this at all.

    Mark tosses you an incendiary gun.

    "Ask me again when there isn't a life-death situation on our hands. And no, probably not. Not comfortably, certainly." She rolls her eyes at him a bit. "Now if you can allow blood to flow to your brain instead of your lower body, we can try to help come up with a plan. Sounds like the group is wanting to make a break towards Lavender and fire back at the swarm as they go. I'm more for entrenching and fighting them off. We have some good ground types, a few fires. We should be fine."

    Paul loads the incendiary bullets into his submachine gun, and sends out his three anti-Steelrupi mon mentioned before.

    There is a flurry of movement as merchants pack up carts, Pokemon are released, and wagons get ready to go.

    Ethan had started getting his team prepared as soon as the alarm sounded. He dashes to the front wagon, releasing Sim, Mjolnir and Ollie. Sim, Transform into Willy, and dig just beneath the surface. Mjolnir, take point and draw as much attention as possible, your our wall. Ollie, stay back. Your our last line of defense. Every stay alert, and be prepared to retailate.

    The fine mist sprays over the other two Psychic, Taylor and Jessica. They give you the finger as they walk by and your jewels twist painfully.

    Ethan didn't incendiaries, although you can ask for one.

    What happened to your Pokemon that were pulling the wagons? If you skip them, you'll have to leave a wagon.

    As for Homework, we'll say you studied during dinner. New day (barely).

    *insert map joke here*

    We Got a Runner!
    Taylor lowers an earthen wall, and the carts fly out, racing across the plains. Most are pulled by Rhyhorn, but one is pulled by Sim and two Geodude, the other by Mark’s Pokemon. The Skorupi line holds strong, not moving, although the backside starts to close in and the sides start to pinch. You hear a roar, likely the Drapion.

    The edge of the wagon counts as Rough Terrain. The wagon is a meter up, factor this into all ranges when attacking. The platform is 3 up from the ground; factor that in to. The platform may ignore the Rough Terrain created by the wagon when attacking.

    The carts will move forward five a round.

    Gerald hops up on the back cart, sending Wagner the Brave to the front and Kubota the lazy to the middle. He also realizes it's nearly been a week since anything's peed on him! Progress! He takes a position at the back, gun ready.

    Artemis runs over to P35 once she realizes that she's on the wrong side of the cart to be helping. Diluvium gets by her shoulder as before (ie same square), ready to spit fire at more steel mons.

    Paul looks at the oncoming horde, then snaps at his young Heatmor.

    Zippo! Time to give these bad bugs some really serious swampbutt.

    The Heatmor scurries to M-16 on the edge of the wagon, ready to get his flame on.

    Once again, Romeo lets Puck out to sit on his lap. He also sends Elly out into P 39, next to John.

    'Elly, look our for John, keep him safe, okay? John, if anything gets on the cart, tell Elly to Quick Attack it or have her Helping Hand mine or Arte's pokemon, alright. If something tries to get you, she should be able to intercept it to keep you safe. Just remember, protection only! Don't send her off the cart, keep her next to you at all times, okay.'

    He loads his gun and checks there is a bullet in the chamber. Time to see if he was as bad with guns as he thought he was going to be.

    This is it. We need to move and fast. Everyone, on my mark! Ethan raises his hand high. He knew most of them wouldn't be able to see him, but he did it anyways. All great Generals gave orders with their hands as much as with their voice.

    Ethan takes a deep breath and bellows. CHARGE! Throwing his arm forward towards the line of Steelupi.

    Game Plan + with an insight point boost. EVERYONE (yes everyone) gets 7 movement. For me, Ollie goes to G1. Mjolnir will go 4m ahead of the lead cart after the cart's movement is resolved (if thats legal, otherwise he stays where he is on the cart). Not even going to try and move everyone around, just going to assume NPCs go forward 7m.

    The Map That Takes Forever Because I Made a Buttload of Skorupi

    All around the cart the combatants get into more advantageous combat positions, urged on by Ethan’s calm, cool, and collected manner.

    The Totodile kid sends his Pokemon out. “Water Gun should do a little damage, right?”

    All around the carts guns click as they are loaded and primed for fire. Romeo’s is ready to fire as well, as if somebody knew he might not be able to get it ready.

    The mounts pull the carts forward even more, the lead cart almost reaching the Skorupi lines.

    The horde moves as a single body, as if they share one mind. From behind you hear a powerful roar; anybody that happens to look back would see four massive machine monsters, at least eight feet tall, rapidly closing. If Ethan looks back, he can identify them as Drapion, evolved Skorupi.

    A few Skorupi join the fight, closing from the sides. The others form a cup around the wagon, rapidly closing in on all sides. At least twenty Skorupi in the front fire at the two lead mounts. Most attacks do very little; all that hit the Lairon shatter harmless, and while many connect with the Zebstrika, none seem to do much damage, after that many shots some had to be poisoned.

    All the other Skorupi are still too far away to act.
