Come on!" Raven ran back towards the cave exit. > > "Isn't anyone else coming?" Gohan looked at the group, but all were focused >on the water. He hesitated, then followed Raven.

Sirius turned around to see his two >siblings already bolting towards the exit.

I don't recognize this before!" shouted Raven. The two of them rammed >their fists into the ice, but to no avail. The tremors were now unbearable, >and a crack formed in the ice. Gohan picked up a rock and slammed it into >the >ice. It shattered instantly. Raven and Gohan ran the rest of the way out of >the cave without incident. > > Dern and Neo, trying to keep up with Raven and Gohan, ended up taking a >wrong >turn. It led to a dead end. Rocks were beginning to block their way back. > > "What should we do!?" yelled Dern. > > "It's too late to run back! We need to get through the top!" > > "The top!?" > > "The roof, ceiling, whatever! Aerodactyl, go!" Neo's Aerodactyl was >released. > > "You have an Aerodactyl!? And don't you give your Pokémon Japanese names!?" > > "I don't know if I have an Aerodactyl and I don't remember the names, >alright!" Neo glared at the incompetent author. "Hang on!" > > Neo and Dern got on Aerodactyl. It crashed through the ceiling, or roof, or >top, or whatever of the cave and the two escaped. > > Orion and Rigel were underground, led by Orion's Dugtrio. They soon >escaped. > > Clefairy bounced (the way Clefairy run) through the cave, followed by Dan. >Suddenly, a pile of rocks fell down, blocking the path. > > "Oh man..." Dan leaned against a wall in frustration. The wall suddenly >crumbled, causing Dan of fall. "Ugh..." > > <That's our way out!> shouted Clefairy. The two went through the hole to >escape. > > Steve, Karen, Nori, Draco, Dernam, and Sirius were all going down the same >path, roughly close together. The walls were caving in behind them, faster >and >faster. > > "We're not going to make it!" shouted Sirius to the rest of the group. No >one >heard. "Gyarados, go! Keep the walls together." > > "GRRAAAAAR!" Gyarados slithered back and curved it's snake-like body in a >way >that the walls would not collapse. After getting a good head start, Sirius >returned it to its Pokéball. > > The group barely made it out in time. The entire cave shook, shivered, and >collapsed moments after. The Legendary Birds could still be made out in the >darkness. Something huge and white rose out of the rubble. > > "What's... that?" wondered Nori. > > The bird-like giant gave an ear-piercing scream, and flew into the air. It >was fifty times larger than the other Legendary Birds. Not noticing the >large >group of people, the enormous creature flew off towards the mainland, >screaming >and roaring the whole way. Dan watched as the huge creature flew away. "What IS that?" he asked. <I don't know,> Clefairy said. <All I know is that it can't be anything good...> "It's not like any pokemon I've ever seen..." Dan continued. Just then, behind the group, the Legendary Birds broke out of the rubble and followed the strange creature, also not noticing any of the people below. Dan
