    Blake pales as he sees the events unfold. "Such devastation..." he whispers. Listening to Joan's speech, he nods along, and as everyone begins moving, he says, "Right... I'll do whatever I can to help." He grabs his medical bag and waits for the group to leave.

    "Of course, ma'am. All of my ground pokemon can burrow underground and sense things for a half-dozen meters or so around them in the dark. I can have Ganga and a few others scout around for what our lights might miss. If there are any other sandiles in the gym, they will be able to do this as well. They're also nearly as smart as we are, and should be easier to coordinate than some 'mons." Collin, since he already is ready to leave, stays ready.

    w-wow... and I thought I was having a bad day thought Dave to himself he had just been in there earlier today... what if it blew up ear... he couldn't think about that now people are counting on him.

    "yes ma'ma I'll get my stuff" Dave rushes back to his dorm and grabs his bag no time to sort it he thinks to himself. and returns to the gym ready to go.

    The Three:
    "Not a bad idea, kid," Joan says, looking honestly impressed. "I'll pass that along to Zach, he's got one."

    A few minutes later you're outside with the others. Joan's holding the lantern high and a brawny man named Zack approaches Collin, "Heard it was your idea to use burrowers as radar system. It's a good idea." He releases what appears to be a much taller Sandile that stands on two feet. You're all able to scan it, thankful that your P-Gear still works. When the Krokorok digs into the ground with the rest of Collin's team, they spread out into the agreed upon formation of a pentagram around the group of you.

    Joan is in the center carrying the light. Zack and Fred follow her and are each flanked by two others. One girl carries a large sledge hammer as she follows Zack. Cathy and Ben are up with the three of you, at the head of the group. Another woman, Anna apparently, walks beside Joan, her huge Honchkrow a shadow among shadows above your group.

    Slowly in the dark, but steadily. You walk west towards the waterfront.

    The Shadow Squad:
    The thirteen of you continue in a steady, methodical pace. None of the burrowers set up any signal and it's overall a quiet trip. Dave manages to look up in the perfect moment to see someone try to escape the city by flying. As the flyer neared the opening of the volcano it was hit with an electric charge that knocked the bird out. The rider and his mount fell back to the city, too faraway for their screams to be heard.

    As per Collin's memory, the vast majority of people you cross are also heading to the docks. Many people, upon seeing your group flocked around Joan's light. The other gym trainers kept them at least at an arm's distance from the Gym Leader and the mob surrounding you grows.

    It's slow going and by the time you all reach the market it's packed with thousands of people. Joan sets about wading through the crowd and directing wounded to Andrew and Taylor. Occasionally Blake is tasked with holding someone down while a painful procedure takes place, but for the most part you three aren't tasked to do anything but keep watch. Now that the initial shock has worn off, you all realize your hunger. A glance at a P-gear reveals that it's 7:15 PM.

    Joan comes back with her entourage around 7:45 PM with a bag of apples. "Here," she says as she offers the bag to Ben. "Looks like no one really knows what's going on. Hundreds of people have tried to escape using pokemon but it's 3 days by cruiser. They'll never make it to Kanto. All ships have sailed off shortly after the blackout. Looks like we're stuck here for now." Ben passes floating apples to each of you and your hunger is sated.

    "I see..." Blake says between bites of apple. "We need more lights... given the situation here, I'm hesitant to suggest using fires for light - we don't want people panicking and burning the place down. Are there any other Pokemon around that can create light, things we might be able to try and find?"

    Dave swallows a bite of apple "if we can get the power back on the light problem will solve its self" he then turns to ben "so what did the island use for power before the mall? oh and speaking of power I saw someone get zapped by something while trying to fly out of here is that a common thing?"

    The Shadow Squad:
    Joan considers your comments, but as she's about to answer another blast can be heard echoing throughout the city. Then another, and another, and another. You can tell the blasts are getting steadily closer, almost leading up to- "GET DOWN!" Joan screams loudly. A telekinetic push from the twins levels everyone onto their stomachs just as the crowd of people explodes in a blazing fire. Scores of people flung in every direction, many into the ocean below. The boardwalk begins collapsing, now that its supports have vanished. You all feel a strong, invisible push and the group of you are thrown back into the streets you came.

    Everyone feels dazed, deafened ears ringing loudly. As you look up you see Joan calling out to people in a mute panic, urging them to get on the streets. A large enough mob begins crawling, and as you and the other gym trainers help them to their feet, your hearing returns. "Everyone! To the Arena! Carry those too weak to walk! Keep going!" Your leader has taken control of the situation, it seems. She urges you on, along with the mob of nearly three hundred people crawling and limping out of the wreckage. The Survivors of Dusk Island march on wearily.

    Collin takes up a position near the front of the crowd, swapping out Sybaris for Ganga and uses her to burrow-scout in front of the ground. "Keep a special lookout for any large metal objects that seem out of place." he says.

    Blake thinks for a moment, before making his way close to Joan. Once there, he whispers to her, "What if the arena is rigged to blow as well? I mean, first the Mall, then the docks... what if they're targeting the places where the most people would normally be?"

    Nodding, Blake says, "Yeah, we should be up to it. Varen can help sweep the place - being able to go through walls will help in that regard. Celeste may be able to sniff the bombs out as well."

    "Okay, then you three go on ahead to the Arena and send a text if it's clear. If there's danger, get out immediately!" Joan says quietly. She pats Blake on the shoulder as he passes and Fred and Zack nod at you guys with respect. You get the impression that no one expects a happy ending.

    You travel. You're getting used to this part. The steady movement over pavement. The glow of Dave's flashlight leading the way. It's not as long of a walk as it was getting to the Boardwalk, being able to walk at your own place. Ganga stays ahead of you, not finding anything too unusual. It's 8:30 PM when you reach the outside of the whole, and undamaged Arena.

    Collin will recall Ganga and send out Rhea. He figures that she's the most likely of his team to survive a blast if one is set off.

    "Stick close, Rhea. We're looking for bombs."

    Blake releases Varen, and attempts to link with the spirit Pokemon - but isn't able to put himself in the right mindframe due to the stress of the situation. Sighing, he says, "Varen, I want you to check around inside the walls ahead of us... see if there's anything unusual there. Pop out when you need to... I know you can't maintain that forever."

    "Spirit of Earth, you do know that as much as I wished to be buried in you someday, please, it would be nice if that day weren't today. I feel that we're just now connecting to each other." Collin prays as he takes up a position in the middle of the group.

    The three of you enter, plan in mind. But as you enter the Arena proper you see something you were not expecting: two people in the middle of the arena, lit by a similar lantern, having an argument. They look at you as you enter, exchange a nervous look and yell, "Hey, what are you doing here? Lieutenant sent you as back up?"

    You're about 20 meters away from them. You can only see the two figures in the light of their lantern. The three of you are still clumped together at the entrance.

    "Oh, good. Bring that light over, lantern sucks for lighting up this panel," the guy calls back. His accomplice slaps him upside the head and calls out to you, "Don't move! Answer me this: What breaks a Rock?" You can see his silhouette shift as he stares towards you more anxious than his partner.

    "Fighting fists smash rock with a Brick Break." Collin says, after briefly thinking about what the answer could be. For some reason, he suspects "an even harder rock" isn't the answer.
