    You reach the building without much trouble. When you enter, a crisp receptionist greets you. Hello welcome to Devon. You're Leon correct? May I see your invitation?

    Abe hardly reacts as more interviewees drift into the room. He merely continues to gaze into his poke balls, occasionally nudging his sunglasses up his nose. For better or worse...

    "Of course." Leon says, pulling out a crumples invitation that's seen much better days. Is that a scorch mark in one corner? What did Leon do to it?

    The receptionist examines the letter, eyes crinkling at the scorch marksThank you, if you would please follow me, we can continue. She gets up, and walks over to a room off of the atruim.

    Everybody
    The doors to the lobby open, and you see the receptionist standing with a young man with shockingly blond hair behind her. Now that everybody has arrived we can begin. You are all here to talk with Mr. Stone and some Devon Scientists about a job opportunity. Everybody here at Devon would like to thank you for your interest in our company, please do not release any pokemon from here on, and return any you have out. Is everybody ready?

    Many of the others in the room voice excitement, and start to go over to the woman. Including the young man who just arrived, there are twelve individuals who will be attending the interview.

    "You heard her, buddy."

    A slightly mournful and dejected, "Aron..." came from the rocksteel. Ken took out the the friend ball.

    "Tell you what. I've got a lithium pellet with some lead for afterwards. That work?"

    "Aron!"

    "I thought so."

    Returning his aron, Ken stood and gave a stretch. "Well, here goes nothin'."

    Amber nods and follows, watching all the pokemon get returned to their pokeballs and feeling a mix of sadness and excitement. Perhaps this job wouldn't be so bad since she could meet all these different pokemon. Then again, that assumed she successfully got the job.

    The group is led to a private elevator which takes you up to the fifth floor. The receptionist takes you through several hallways lined with suits of armor, portraits of famous Devon scientists, and several workers walking hurriedly with large files, and laptop computers.

    The twelve of you were split into two groups, each group went into one of two adjacent rooms. You were sent into the left. Inside, lays a modern room that contrasts sharply with the traditional castle-like decor of the hallways. Light blue walls, blue carpet, a conference table in the middle of the room, a projector on the ceiling, and swivel chairs. Inside sit two people: one is recognized by all, the president of Devon. In his mid 50's with bushy brown hair, and a little overweight, he was the center of the Devon Universe. Sitting by his side was a woman in her late teens or early twenties, dressed in a summer dress, with cascading down to her lower back.

    The president smiles at you. Welcome, please have a seat. No doubt you know who I am, but not many know my daughter Samantha. The girl nods curtly, but otherwise remains silent.

    Once they are no longer in the lobby and Amber figures that nobody would be rude enough to comment during the interview, she removes her hat and sunglasses and gives a polite nod to the president before taking a seat.

    This was one of those scenarios where Ken was glad he was mostly torso rather than proportionally short. While he had to scramble into the chair more than sit, once he was sitting down it was about right.

    Although his feet didn't touch the floor.

    "It's nice to meet you both." He responded, amiably, with a nod.

    You recall hearing about Samantha. Though she's never challenged any gyms, apparently she's one of the most powerful trainers in Hoenn, and trains with Champion Wallace on a regular basis.


    Abe

    They both have deep brown auras, the president's like hot chocolate, Samantha's shade is more reminiscent of coffee.


    The President acknowledges you all with a small nod, but says to Drake in voice that, while stern, wasn't harsh. You will either address me as Mr. President or Mr. Stone while in my employ. Now I'd like to thank you all for coming to this interview. The reason you're here is because my family and I believe that we need a special task force. When we have problems too dangerous for security guards and too sensitive to get to the public's ears, we usually have to search high and low for people to help us, which wastes precious time and money. If accepted, the six of you will form a team that handles these kinds of problems for us.

    Each of you was chosen as a finalist for this job because you have qualities that more powerful trainers lacked. I'd like you to introduce yourselves to your new teammates and explain briefly where your specialties lie.

    Abe speaks next, without getting up. "My name is Abe. I have the ability to see others' auras and control my own. I can channel it to emulate certain attacks that can normally only be used by pokemon. I can also tell whether someone is particularly malevolent or benevolent."

    He looks around at the others, noting their various auras. His gaze would be...somewhat disconcerting if the subject doesn't know what he's doing.

    'Hi I'm Ken and I punch people'.

    No that sounded exceptionally stupid. That was, granted, what it boiled down to - but he'd worked hard on his resumé to make his abilities sound better than that. Come on, what was it.

    "Well, my name is Ken Richmond, and I'm a protector. I use my own body as a weapon alongside my pokemon to try to protect others from threats."

    He didn't stand up as he said it since... um, once again his feet didn't touch the floor, but that sounded a little better. Although from the sounds of it, most of the people here sounded a heck of a lot more qualified than he did. Still, nothin' for it but to hope!

    After you all finish introducing yourself, Samantha brushes the hair out of her eyes, and looks around at the set of you. If you decide to take this job, we will require complete confidentiality and obedience. We won't ask you to do anything horrible, but there are many projects at Devon Corporation that shouldn't reach the public's ears. I used to handle these kinds of problems, but they've become more and more frequent lately. Danger will be a given on your assignments. In your spare time, I don't care what you do. As Devon employees you will have access to our considerable resources, within reason.

    She produces a shear of papers and hands a small packet to each of you. On it is a contract with Devon Corporation to be hired in the area of "Administrative Relations." You will be paid on commission, and your income is tax exempt. It also included a confidentiality clause, a liability waiver, and a 10% discount on all official Devon Products. If any of you have questions or objections, voice them now. If not, sign these forms, and then we just have one more step before you become full employees.

    As you all noticed, we brought two groups of six people in for this job. We will only be accepting one set. We know your strengths and weaknesses as an individual, but we don't know how well you work with others. The two teams will battle each other using pokemon only. The winners are hired, the losers won't be. You have 10 minutes to exchange team information and do any strategizing before the match starts.


    The two stood up and walked out of the room. Mr. Stone paused at the door, nodded at the group of you, and wished you luck before leaving.

    Hearing she'd have to fight Amber blushed lightly before turning to the party. She'd have to discuss her pokemon which if they reacted like most did would cause them to belittle her friends.

    "I have a Beedrill, a Magikarp, and a Togetic." She says.
