Minax simply stares at the fire wall blazing before her. She tilts her head,
"Why did David's Rhyhorn have to kill Poliwhirl? He could've used his Water
Gun attack to douse the flames. Now he's dead."
The nasal voice of Shard is heard calling out from the distance, "Yeah!
Resurrect your Poliwhirl to save you! It was the best Pokemon *ever*!"
Assured that Minax's Poliwhirl is going to come back from the dead to save
Minax and Nori, Shard escapes through a hole in the wall made by Dernam's
Minax ignores Shard's nonsense, not even wondering how he knew about her
Poliwhirl. She looks at the fire, then back at Nori, who has fainted from
the fumes. "Hmm..." Minax scratches her head, about to be consumed by the
That moment, a Wartortle shows up in the midst of the flames, using Water
Gun to put them all out. "I'm not about to let the damn psycho who set this
dump aflame take the credit for killin' Nori. Not to mention Mag-tard.
That's *my* job."
"Who the hell are you?" Minax narrows her eyes at the rude Wartortle.
The Wartortle growls, "I was about t' ask ya the same thing. You look
awfully whory. Anyway, my name's Rubix, and you'd better respect my
authority or I'll..." Rubix is silenced by a swift kick to the head from
Minax. The tall Rocket hefts Nori up onto her shoulder and runs through the
gap in the firewall that Rubix's Water Gun attack made...

On her way out of the flaming wreckage that was once the Cerulean City Hotel
Ballroom, Minax notices a frail woman on the ground, dressed like a member
of Team Rocket would. Minax tries to guess 'her' weight to make sure 'she'
can carry the 'woman' as well as Nori. "Hmm. I'd say less than 100 pounds.
Damn anorexic whores that make me look fat. Still, a Rocket in need is a
Rocket indeed." Minax uses her one free arm (*just* her one arm) to lift the
twig-like supposed-female off the ground. Minax supports 'her' on her other
Fortunately for Nisemon, the fumes don't allow Minax to smell the
distinctive aroma that some Ditto expel from their bodies, a scent that only
people who have an intense sense of smell can detect. If Minax had noticed
this scent, she would have tossed Nisemon directly into the flames to die
due to her dislike for Ditto. Instead, Minax's extraordinary sense of smell
was making it excruciatingly difficult to withstand the fumes all around
her. She coughs as she stumbles out of the Ball through a hole in the wall,
carrying Nori on one shoulder and Nise-Murasaki on the other.
Once safely away from the flames, Minax relieves her shoulders of Nori and
Nisemon. The two topple to the ground uncomfortably. Minax watches as an
Arbok slithers out of the flaming building with a Bulbasaur on its back. The
Arbok instinctively slithers towards Nori, and wraps around her to perform
its own version of CPR.
Minax wonder who set the building on fire. She remembers the Bob-Omb that
Shard showed her in the alley, but also remembers that he said he'd never
use it if it might harm Maria. That's when it hits her. Rubix, that is!
Having escaped from the burning building, no thanks to Minax, he tries to
knock Minax over with a Tackle attack, "Take that!"
Giseisha, Nori's Arbok, knows that it was Minax who saved its master. The
large purple snake Glares at Rubix, paralyzing the Wartortle in an
uncomfortable position. "Chaaa...bokku."
Minax blinks, realizing that Maria had to be the one who set the building on
fire, "What a crazy inconsiderate pyro. She knew Shard and I were still in
there. Damn, what a whore. I bet she has sex with Pokemon just for the cheap
Somehow, hearing this comment from Minax revitalizes Nise-Murasaki. 'She'
opens one eye grins an insane grin.
Nori wakes up coughing, Giseisha's impromptu CPR working well. The girl sits
up and watches as the Cerulean City Hotel collapses. She wonders how many
people must've been crushed under the destruction and cringes.
Minax nods to Nori and to Nise-Murasaki, "Well, that's my good deed for the
millennium. Farewell." Minax dashes away, out of the Cerulean City limits,
without looking back even once.
