This might not be word-for-word exact, but since I can't find a copy of my earlier post anywhere, I can at least promise that this has the same important events and gist.

Doppler squeaked happily, changing colors like a hippie > Ditto gone insane. After much splashing around, Seth and Aerie eventually got out of the water. Once back on dry land, Aerie reached for her Dopplerpaddle...and searched...and looked...and panicked... ...until Seth pulled it out from behind his back. Smirking, he began a slightly less vigorous session with it, playing keep-away from Aerie all the while... ...until a random fireball vaporized the paddle, sending Doppler in a high arc.

Time seemed to slow down as her mind settled into a pattern of thought she had known since babyhood. #Situation analysis: FUBAR Probability of fixing situation to prevent damage: Zero Probability of escaping situation to prevent damage: Non-zero Reccomendation: Escape Possible means of escape in sufficient time: Teleport only Engaging teleport... Destination: Safety (homehomeHOME!) Warning: Allies in danger; remove allies from danger first Teleport designate Slasher Teleport designate Seth Warning cleared Teleport self Emergency resolved ... Why do I think I'm forgetting something?# As the three shifted to a certain room in Mt. Moon, Doppler erupted from his confinement. Dreadite surfaced just in time to see Doppler bellow, "Who DARES?!?!?" However, the target of Doppler's concern was nowhere to be seen, and he did not seem to be paying Dreadite much attention - which was probably because Dreadite was still in the hole he had carved, which was in turn difficult to see from Doppler's landing spot. Dreadite paused to watch Doppler toy with his victims; however, whoever had ticked him off this time seemed to have managed a successful escape. Dreadite resumed course for the Pokemon Tower after Doppler stormed off. On Dreadite's back, a new feather giggled silently to itself. TBC?
