- Pokémon Center
|Brendan||This sure escalated quickly, huh...|
|Brendan||The super-ancient Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre...|
|May||They're both extremely powerful, if I remember right.|
Come on! Let's go check it out!
- Super-Ancient Pokémon Spotted!
|May||Wow! Is that Pokémon what I think it is?|
|Brendan||Whoa! That's so cool!|
Wait, this isn't what I came here for!
I have to get back to the Pokémon Center and let Trista know what's going on!
|Trista||Hello! I've just received some important information from May and Brendan.|
|May||You're not gonna believe this, but I saw Kyogre!|
|Brendan||And I found Groudon!|
Since they're both Legendary Pokémon, we thought it best to come here quick and report what we saw before it's too late!
|Trista||We're not sure what caused these two Legendary Pokémon to appear, so we're requesting an official survey of where they were spotted.|
We'd like to confirm what's going on and make sure those areas are safe.
I apologize for the inconvenience, but as a safety precaution, please avoid visiting the beach and volcano areas.
|May||Aw man! So we can't go back?|
|Brendan||I hope it doesn't take too long for them to figure out if it's safe or not...|
|May||I know! If all they need is someone to sneak over and check things out, we could probably do that ourselves!|
|Brendan||Good idea! Hey, why don't you join us, <player>?|
|May||Yeah! I'd feel a lot better if you came with us, <player>!|
- A Creeping Crisis
|Archie||Thanks for the tip, kiddo!|
Say, why aren't you scared of me?
Little scamps like you usually run away the moment they see my face...
|Preschooler||You don't look scary to me!|
And my mommy says that if someone says thank you, that means they're a good person!
|Archie||I see! Your mom sure knows what's what, kiddo!|
Hm? And who are you? That's quite a fierce expression for such a wee little scamp!
You're not runnin' away scared, either... There sure are some oddballs here on Pasio!
The name's Archie. I run an organization called Team Aqua.
Basically, we're a group of environmentalists focused on protectin' the ocean!
Lemme ask you something—what do you think of Pasio?
The ocean here is pretty!: Tch... You don't get it, do you.
It's full of nature!: Tch... You call this nature?
Lemme tell you somethin', kiddo. The ocean is an irreplaceable treasure for every livin' thing on this planet.
But just look at this travesty!
Humans caused massive damage to the ocean to make this artificial island, all to satisfy their selfish egos!
We of Team Aqua work for the sake of all Pokémon of the sea!
Our mission is to return nature and the ocean back to their unspoiled origins!
Pasio is no exception!
This island makes me sick. I'd smash it to pieces if I could.
Don't do that!: If the ocean had feelings, I'm sure it'd feel the same way about this island bein' plopped on top of it.
Don't blame Pasio!: But what did the ocean ever do to anyone? Why's it gotta put up with havin' this island plopped on top of it?
Well, it's all moot anyway. I just got a tip that Kyogre was spotted on this island.
With its power, I can carry out my plan to sink Pasio into the ocean!
This is my chance to make Kyogre's power mine...
You better not get in my way!
|Maxie||Very interesting. So this Lear individual is the creator of Pasio.|
Intriguing. I'd like to meet him.
|Brendan||I guess that's fine, but you better promise me you won't do anything bad on Pasio!|
We have enough to deal with since Groudon showed up.
|Maxie||Hm? Groudon is here, you say?|
|Brendan||Wait, were you planning to capture him all along?!|
|Maxie||*chuckle* I understand now... You think I'm some ruthless villain.|
I'm the leader of Team Magma, an organization dedicated to finding paths upon which humanity may stride freely forward and evolve.
We need Groudon's power to achieve our ideal world!
Of course, I don't intend to take anything by force.
|Brendan||Oh, it's <player>.|
Archie's gonna use Kyogre to sink Pasio into the ocean?!
|Maxie||That fool... He's always coming up with these outrageous ideas.|
|Brendan||OK! I'll see you soon!|
|Maxie||I couldn't help but overhear your conversation. Archie's here on Pasio, isn't he.|
If so, we'll need to formulate a solid strategy to stop him.
|Brendan||Wait, you're gonna help us?|
|Maxie||Well, we can't let him sink the island, can we?|
|Brendan||Fine... You can help us out.|
But don't you dare do anything shady, got it?!
|Maxie||Of course. You have my word.|
- Stop Archie!
|May||All right, Maxie. You have a plan to stop Archie?|
Specifically, we have to prevent Archie from making contact with Kyogre.
But just in case, I'll approach Groudon in the meantime and get it to join our side.
|May||If we do end up battling Kyogre, it's true that Groudon would be our best chance at beating it...but I'm still a little worried.|
Brendan, do you think we can do it?
|Brendan||I understand your concern, May. But if we don't stop him, it's going to be a disaster.|
I can't just give up and watch that happen!
|May||You're right, Brendan... OK! You can count on me, too!|
|Maxie||So we're all on the same page? Then it's time to execute our plan.|
|Brendan||Hold on a second! If Maxie's going to Groudon, what should the rest of us do?|
|Maxie||Brendan—that's your name, isn't it? Why don't you come with me.|
You're the one who knows where Groudon is, right?
|May||In that case, <player> and I should try to find Archie...|
and stop him from capturing Kyogre!
Both parts of our plan are gonna be tough, but we have to do our best to protect Pasio!
|Archie||How can they call this island nature? It's nothin' but a blob of human greed!|
Whaddya think, Kyogre?! Wanna help me plunge Pasio into the briny deep?!
Together, you and I are gonna make this sullied ocean pristine again!
Archie, stop!: Hm? Oh, it's you again.
Kyogre, don't do it!: Who said that?! Oh, it's you again.
Doesn't look like you came here to help me out.
|May||You can't just sink Pasio into the ocean!|
|Archie||Of course I can, kiddo! What, it's OK to pollute the ocean, but sinking an island is where the line's drawn?|
Why don't you explain that? It's the same thing, isn't it?!
|May||It's not the same!|
Pasio may be artificial...
but people and Pokémon live on it just like any other natural island!
This island is full of life!
|Archie||Full of life, huh? You might have a point there.|
But what about all the living creatures that lost their homes because of this island?
Building Pasio damaged the nature surrounding it!
How can you say that's OK?
|May||It's not OK! I never said it was!|
|May||Oh no... Kyogre's going to attack!|
Archie, get away from there!
|Brendan||Maxie, do you know how you're gonna get Groudon to come with us?|
|Maxie||I suppose the only way is to defeat it in battle.|
|Brendan||Wait, we have to battle Groudon?|
|Maxie||Sometimes, a bit of force is necessary in order to get things done.|
But I understand why you're so surprised. It will be dangerous after all.
Do you want to turn back now? I won't hold it against you if you do.
|Brendan||Of course not! I'm staying!|
|Maxie||Hmph. If only we had a little more time, I could have come up with a more efficient solution, but we just have to work with what we have.|
|Brendan||I don't mind! And I'll do what I can to save Pasio!|
Even if it means I have to battle Groudon!
I may not look it, but I'm pretty strong! Leave the battling to me!
- Maxie's Objective
|Brendan||This is where I spotted Groudon.|
|Brendan||Whoa! What the—|
|Maxie||Mightyena, protect that boy!|
|Brendan||Treecko! Cover Mightyena and corner Groudon!|
|Maxie||Face me, you beast!|
I'll have you join me, Groudon! To protect the land...and fulfill my ambitions!
|Maxie||Wait, I know that cry!|
Sounds like we may be too late.
|May||They're so strong!|
At this rate, even <player> is gonna get pushed back...
|Archie||Bwahahahahahaha! Bwaha! AHAHAHAHAHA!|
That's it, Kyogre! Sink this island to the bottom of the ocean!
May, are you OK?: Yeah, I'm fine! But we need to stop them!
May, this way!: Thanks! But we have to stop those two!
|Archie||Hahaha! Yes! Keep it up!|
Sink Pasio into the ocean!
Get outta here! The ocean will rise and swallow everything up!
Hm? That little scamp...
|May||Oh no! That little girl is in danger!|
|Archie||Tch. Of all the—|
|Maxie||What on earth are you doing?|
There's no consistency to your actions. How do you expect your subordinates to ever respect you as their leader?
What are you doing here?!
|Maxie||Hmph. We can save the chitchat for later. Right now, our first priority is stopping those two.|
Hey, you little scamps! Take care of this kid! Get her to safer ground!
Let's go, Sharpedo! We're gonna stop Kyogre and Groudon!
- Aqua and Magma Unite!
|Archie||C'mon, Maxie! Don't you dare hold me back!|
|Maxie||I could say the same to you.|
|Maxie||They're strong... I suppose they aren't called super-ancient Legendary Pokémon just for show.|
|Brendan||We'll help you out!|
|May||We got that little girl to a safe place! She's OK!|
|Archie||Good. Thanks for doing that. Now I can finally cut loose!|
I appreciate it, scamps.
|Maxie||It pains me to even suggest this, but allow me to distract them. Use that opportunity to stop at least one of them.|
I'm sure you can handle that, Archie.
|Archie||What're you actin' all high and mighty for! Just shut up and watch me!|
|Maxie||Annoying and boisterous as ever...|
|Maxie||There, they stopped moving... Do it!|
|Archie||Go get em', scamps!|
|Brendan||Brendan! May!: We got this! Don't fall behind, May!|
|May||Brendan! May!: Don't worry! We're going all-out to save Pasio!|
Here we go!: Let's do it, Brendan!
|Brendan||Here we go!: Yeah! Here comes our full-force attack! These super-ancient Pokémon won't know what hit 'em!|
|Brendan||Whew! They finally stopped...|
|May||I wonder why they were so upset in the first place.|
|Maxie||This is just my own hypothesis...|
but perhaps these super-ancient Pokémon were somehow influenced by us.
|Archie||Wait, are you sayin' it's my fault?|
|Maxie||Not just yours. I'd say the fault lies equally with us both.|
After all, we came here from another region, didn't we?
And Groudon and Kyogre are also from that region.
They never existed on Pasio to begin with. Isn't that right?
|Brendan||Yeah, because there aren't any wild Pokémon on Pasio in the first place.|
|Archie||What's your point?|
Are you sayin' Groudon and Kyogre came here because of us?
That doesn't explain why they were rampaging!
|May||Um... I think maybe they just felt overwhelmed.|
If I were them, I'd be really scared to suddenly find myself in a strange, new place, too.
|Archie||Hah! That's pretty pathetic for a couple of super-ancient Legendary Pokémon!|
|Maxie||Well, this is all conjecture, of course.|
|Archie||But if they were raging because of us...|
then we've gotta take responsibility for that, don't we?!
I'm sorry, Kyogre!
I get it! You were freakin' out over bein' in some new place you didn't recognize!
But that battle we just had showed you that we make a good team, right?
Why don't I take care of you until we can head back home?
|May||Wait, that means...|
|Archie||Yeah, I'll stop trying to sink Pasio into the ocean.|
|Maxie||Well...I can't say this was part of the plan, but if you find me worthy of being your partner, I won't stop you from joining me.|
|Brendan||So...I guess that's the end of that, then?|
|May||Yup! Looks like it!|
|Brendan||I really hope so...|
You two better not do anything else extreme just to fulfill your ambitions, got it?!
|May||I'm so glad Pasio is safe!: Me too! We should head back and let everyone know it's safe!|
Let's report to Trista!: Sounds like a plan! The sooner we let everyone know they're safe, the better!
|Archie||Oh, NOW you two show up?!|
|Maxie||Hmph. I can't believe you came after the situation was already resolved.|
Now that the administrators of our respective organizations are here on Pasio, I suppose that means...
|Archie||We can't keep playin' nice together on Pasio anymore, huh?|
Eh, that's more our style anyway! Don't you think so, too, Maxie-boy?
|Maxie||Hmph. I hate to admit it, but I do agree.|
Even if it was just temporary, I suppose it wasn't so bad teaming up with you.
|Archie||Hey, that's my line!|
|Archie||Whoa, hold your Horsea. No battlin' without me orderin' it, all right?|
We can save it for next time! Now that your crew's all here, we can battle as much as we want!
|Maxie||Agreed. Let's call a short truce...for now, at least.|
- Masters of Land and Sea was the first story event to feature the Battle Challenge.
