"Congratulations." The purple haired teen said wearing a slight smile. "Looked like fun." "It was, but there is a lot to it. I'll have to study to learn more if I ever decide to do one of these things again. Kicker did an awesome job, though." Becky's voice was heavy with pride at her Pokemon's efforts. "Should we wait for Robert?" Travis asked seeing his friend up on stage talking to Smasher. The Diversity gym leader carried on the conversation, but his eyes kept darting to the side where Jasmine was still glaring at him. "We can catch up with him later." Becky answered. "For now, I want to get something to drink. Thirsty work being on display and trying to entertain a crowd." Travis nodded and led the way to the concession stand. As he stood waiting for Becky to place her order, he looked over at a small group that seemed to be wearing several different costumes. Another of the contestants, Kitsu he thought her name was, seemed to be wearing a Ninetails costume under another. She was talking to a young man that was dressed as a Bulbasaur. Though only two of them were standing there, it seemed to be a three way conversation as both spoke with Kitsu's second costume. Travis's eyes narrowed as he realized the secondary costume seemed to emit a strong feeling of pride and accomplishment. "So what do you wish to do next?" Becky asked, interrupting his train of thought. "Want to go and look at some of the displays?" "I've seen most of them on this floor." Travis replied turning his attention fully to his traveling companion. "We can go look at some of them again, but first, I need to look around. Seems a few of my Pokemon went awol while I was looking at the contest. Pop-Up and my new Sableye have gone missing." "Becky's eyes went wide and she seemed to grow pale as she said, "This can't be good. A mischievous Abra and a perverted Sableye loose on this crowd. We better find them fast!" "Oh it is ok." Travis replied in his laid back manner. "What kind of trouble could they possibly find?" Seemingly summoned by his words and before Becky could form a response, a loud crash came from down the hall. By the time they had turned their heads towards the sound, a team of people wearing COMICON Security outfits were in motion moving towards the sound. Travis and Becky exchanged a look before hurrying off in the same direction. Travis noted that the oddly costumed pair were also headed that way with concerned expressions, but didn't think it odd as most of the crowd were moving that way as well. Though his face remained impassive, inwardly Travis was already grinning wondering what kind of trouble his Pokemon had found....
