~La-La: Veilstone City, Walking Home From The Store----HUGE Tyranitar! <insert scream>~
As soon as the champion had been crowned, La-La was prepared to storm out of the crowd of onlookers who were just starting to disperse. She had been innocently shopping all day in Veilstone City for poffin supplies, Max Repels (she needs these in order to ward off insects/rodents/creepy guys), a new pokedoll to send to her mom as a "thank you" for the new dress she sent her (along with a "thank you" card), and some more pokechow. She managed to buy all the things on her list (except for some berries, she'd had to visit the Berry Master later), with Petunia doing the most of the helping (she thought she'd take her Bellossom for a nice walk), when she walked by a store selling TV's that aired the Championships. Of course, she would've much rather go home and feed all her pokemon then watch a stupid Championship, but she couldn't help but notice Frank....ON TV! She had no other choice but to stop, she hadn't seen her friend in years and was starting to worry about him. She didn't think that when he told her he wanted to become pokemon champion, he was actually going to go for it! She stood there the entire match to cheer her old friend on, but when he lost she became awfully disappointed. As the camera zoomed in on Frank's opponent her disappointment soon turned to shock. The guy looked familiar, she couldn't place her finger on it, but something about him bugged her. So, she stayed and kept watching the strange trainer's winning streak, for the sake of finding him out. Then it hit her, she had competed against this guy in a couple contests, and he lost all of them if she remembered. What was his name again? Lars, Mars, .....Archy? She couldn't remember. What was he doing in the Sinnoh Championships anyways? He was horrible at appealing if she remembered correctly. La-La crossed her arms, while watching the trainer move on to the the next round, against the last of the Elite Four. Lucian. Well, it wasn't like he'd win this match anyways.
----A few minutes later....----
La-La stood there with her mouth hung open. She couldn't believe it. The guy who lost all those contest before, actually won against the strongest of the Elite Four?! Unbelievable. As the new Champion of Sinnoh was crowned, La-La stormed off, away from the cheering crowd that had gathered around the store's window (with the storekeeper trying to shoo them away), and down the suddenly highly lively street, with her Bellossom in her arms. "Can you believe that jerk Petunia? He actually won the Championships! Tell me, when was the last time he actually won anything?" she asked her Bellossom, while walking through a sea of celebrating people. Her Bellossom responded with a very visible shrugged which made La-La let out a low huff. "Exactly. Just wait until I contact Frank, I'll make him wish he never lost that match an--" She stopped in her tracks, now thinking about Frank. She wondered how the guy took his loss. He wasn't exactly the type to lose, and he had wanted to become Champion so bad. She took out her pokegear, and flipped through the phone numbers stopping at Franks. He hadn't called her in ages, did he even remember her?
Her musings were interupted by a sudden tremble of the ground, and a chorus of screams following thereafter. Out of instinct she clutched Petunia tighter, frozen in one spot as a wave of people rushed passed her. She looked at, who looked back terrified. La-La assumed Petunia was thinking the same thing she was thinking. "Do you think we should go check it out?" she asked Petunia in a shakey voice. Petunia turned her blossom embolded head towards the direction that people were running from and stared, La-La followed her gaze, her knuckles turning white from carrying her shopping bags for such a long time. The lass gulped, "Well look at the bright side, atleast I have you guys to protect me", she said refering to her entire pokemon party, "Besides, it can't be that tough". La-La stared straight ahead for a few moments, trying to gather what ounce of courage she may have, before giving Petunia a firm nod. "Lets go Petunia!"
And with that, La-La handed a random passerby her shopping bags, who looked at her suspicously. "Can you carry those for me? Thanks!" La-La ran ahead towards the scene of the crime, leaving behind a bewildered young man. "I'll come back for those!" she yelled at the man reassuringly, before turning her attention on the destination.
Moments later, she had reached the scene of the crime, only to find herself staring at a humungous Tyranitar who was rampaging around like he owned this city. She looked around for the Tyranitar's owner, hoping it was just a wild one that didn't get it's beauty sleep. Unfortunately it was quite the opposite, surrounding the Tyranitor was a numberless amount of crooks dressed in black and red, as well as a mask man who seemed to be in charge of the giant beast. La-La held Petunia even tighter, almost choking the poor pokemon. "Can it be...?", the lass took a step back, horrified. "It's those crooks! Team Rocket! Those rumors were right after all! Let's get out of here before they can see us!" La-La turned on her heel, prepared to go find the stranger who had her bags and then run home when the skyscraper in front of her was hit by a Focus Blast, it's windows shattering into a million pieces. This caused La-La to stop in her tracks, and slowly turn to face the Tyranitor. At that time, she had noticed the Garchomp and the Granbull, as well as their trainers who were taking on the masked figure. 'Well....they, seemed to have it covered...' She thought too soon, for a large manoswine, and a scizor were both released from their pokeballs by two grunts, while the masked stranger continued his rampage. She winced as the boy with the Granbull barely dodged the manoswine's attack, but her heart missed a beat as the scyther raced towards the strange man with the Garchomp. "WATCH OUT!" she yelled to the trainer in the mix-matched clothing with a sense of desperateness in her voice.
