"If only I had my Gyarados with me, I'd kill that bastard," growls the blond
Aqua Grunt running beside Elsa as he sneers at the incarcerated Team Magma
Not particularly fond of the man's attitude, but wanting to make him feel
better anyway, Elsa mentions, "Don't worry, we'll be reunited with our
Pokemon once we make it outside."
"Except you won't be making it outside," a prison guard says, stopping Elsa
in her tracks by grabbing one of her arms. Fearing that more guards on their
way, the male Aqua that Elsa was talking to just keeps on running. While
Elsa tries to figure out something to say to the man grabbing her arm, the
prison guard's face is introduced to a boot belonging to a certain
pink-haired Aqua Grunt as Mariana hits him with a roundhouse kick, knocking
him to the floor.
Mariana spits on the guard she just kicked and remarks, "Oh, yes she will."
Grabbing Elsa's arm much the same way the prison guard did, Mariana pulls
her former cell-mate towards the nearest exit as fast as she can, warning,
"Watch where you're running, Wanda. If that guard had been one of the
prison's Machamp, I wouldn't have been able to take him down."
"I'm sorry, I've never escaped from prison before. I'm not familiar with the
protocol," Elsa points out sarcastically.
Mariana smirks and says, "You're an Aqua now. You'd better get used to break
ing out of jail. Oop! Guards ahead - better make a left turn..."

"Excuse me, sir," a blue-haired male Aqua Grunt says, approaching Aqua Admin
Leif, "I don't mean to bother you, but... I can't find my Wailmer anywhere."
"Where's my Corsola?!" a red-haired Aqua Grunt shrieks, after a having
searched for her Pokemon for a few minutes.
Leif furrows his brow, trying to figure out the best way to tell the
recently-released Aqua Grunts what Doppler just did.
Two Team Aqua Grunts who have no difficulty whatsoever finding their Pokemon
are a brown-haired, green-eyed Grunt named Elsa and a pink-haired, blue-eyed
Grunt named Mariana. Mere seconds after the two Aqua Grunts exit the
Verdanturf Penitentiary together, a young blue Mudkip leaps into Elsa's arms
and licks her face while a scrappy red Corphish hugs one of Mariana's legs.
A third Pokemon, a Roselia who's not as fast as the other two Pokemon, also
makes her way towards the freed prisoners as fast as her little legs can
Seeing other Aqua Grunts reunite with their Pokemon, the blond Aqua Grunt
who abandoned Elsa earlier shouts, "WHERE THE HELL IS MY GYARADOS?!"
That's when Leif borrows a megaphone from the unconscious Officer Jenny on
the ground and announces, "Attention, everyone! Some of you are
understandably worried about your missing Pokemon. An organization calling
themselves 'The Pokemon Rebellion' beat us to releasing our imprisoned
Pokemon. It appears that their psychic leader used some form of mind-control
to convince some of our Pokemon to join their group. While this is a
distressing turn of events, we must leave Verdanturf Town immediately,
before police back-up arrives. The mission to recover the lost Pokemon will
have to wait for another day. If you look up, you'll see four helicopters.
There is enough room for five Aqua Grunts per helicopter. Please form four
groups of five. I repeat, please form four groups of five."
"Roselia!" exclaim both Elsa and her Roselia when the Grass Pokemon reaches
her Trainer. The brown-haired girl places her Mudkip under her left arm and
picks up the one-foot-tall Pokemon with her right hand. Elsa places her
Roselia on her shoulder then asks Mariana, "Which helicopter do you think we
should go in?"
"Leif's, of course," Mariana replies, picking up her Corphish, "He's the
highest-ranking Aqua here - his helicopter's probably got an in-flight movie
and a mini-bar. But we'd better hurry, though - I'm betting a bunch of other
Aquas want to hitch that sweet ride..." Noticing that Leif is already
standing next to two Aqua Grunts, namely Sven and Peabody, Mariana hustles
to get to his group before any other Aquas Grunts do.
Not wanting to be separated from the only other Team Aqua member she
actually knows, Elsa chases after Mariana, careful not to drop her Mudkip or
her Roselia in the process. "Hey, Mari, for me! I want to raid Leif's
