Bob looked up to see Yolei & Lynkeru standing in front of him. "You know Aerie personally, so we were wondering if you could settle a bet," Yolei said. "Is Aerie part Ghost or part Ditto?" "She's part Ditto," Bob answered. He wasn't quite sure how someone can confuse the two until he remembered that Ghost-types sometimes use Hypnosis to cast illusions that are not unlike shape-shifting. "See, I told you," Yolei said to Lynkeru. "Alright, fine, but I don't see how this affects the plan," Lynkeru replied. "What sort of plan?" Bob asked. Yolei & Lynkeru immediately stiffened in shock, apparently not expecting Bob to ask about their plan. They put on fake smiles and backed away slowly. "Oh, nothing," Yolei lied. "It's not important." "Yeah, it's not what you think," Lynkeru said. "We just... uh..." "If your plan is to get the Shiny Unown out of Aerie, I want in," Bob said. "What?" Yolei & Lynkeru replied. "Aerie may be under their control," Bob explained. "We need to get them out of their before she does any more damage." "Agreed," Lynkeru said. "She sent Trent after Yolei. There's no telling what she can do herself." "So what's the plan?" Bob asked. Yolei & Lynkeru looked around suspiciously before leaning towards Bob conspiratorily. "We haven't worked out the details yet," Yolei explained. "But I can use my PokeGear to find Aerie. Then Lynkeru can fight her, attempting to stab her with her swords in order to knock the Unown out of her so I can catch them in PokeBalls." "But wouldn't that hurt Aerie?" asked Bob. "I don't think it'd be any worse than when Trent shot her," Yolei answered. "Besides, if she is under their control I'm sure she'd understand that we're just trying to help." "And if she doesn't?" "Then we'll have to run really, really fast," Lynkeru replied. "So, are you in or not?" -- Chet "Tech" Weaver's Revised Basic Sig Desperado Coyote!
