Chapter One: An Army is Formed!

Ever since her birth, Puffster the Jigglypuff had high aspirations. She didn't just want to be rich or famous; she wanted to rule the world. And if she had assembled a powerful army, who would stop her?
Every day the pink puffball would go to Beach Cave and train for hours upon hours. Fighting hordes of Shellos and Kabuto eventually brought her to her physical limits, what they call level one hundred. She was sure she was now unbeatable, however overconfident that thought may have been.
Every night she would continue construction on the underground army base. After all, an army base was completely exposed if over ground, right? Her sweat, blood and perseverance eventually created a massive underground networking, hidden only by a manhole cover. Puffster only hoped that the Diglett wouldn't find their way in.
She had even thought of a name for it: the Pink Army.

But for several years, she had never come across another Igglybuff, Jigglypuff or Wigglytuff (other species sickened her, and she refused them). That would all change one breezy summer morning...

~~~~~

Blissey was tending to eggs left by other Pokemon for her daycare services. The jolly pink thing was tucking a bright-red egg into a pouch on her stomach, humming a peppy tune. "Don't go anywhere!" she joked, pointing to the other eggs. "Tee hee!" As she left the tent (which looked almost exactly like her), Puffster poked her fluffy head out from behind a bush. She held a pair of binoculars in her nubby little hands.

Idiot fat lady, talking to herself, she thought, grimacing. She disgusts me, talking when nobody cares about whatever she says. Today Puffster thought of what turned out to be an obvious solution: adopt a child. She had looked into the tent for the past eight days, but couldn't spot a pink, swirly-marked egg. Maybe today there was one. There had to be one. Of course, that's the only reason why I didn't write about the other times she looked.

So obviously the egg was there, sitting against a plushy pillow. Puffster swiftly leaped onto a desk, an angry puffy face forced upon her cute little body. She delicately grabbed the egg, which was over half her size. How could someone like her have possibly laid an egg the size of that!? Whatever. She hopped out as fast as she had gone in and dashed into the army base.

~~~~~

Puffster laid the egg in her somehow-stolen oven to warm it. Don't worry, she only set it onto its lowest setting. In only days it hatched into a smiling baby Igglybuff, its red eyes huge and its tuft of hair unkempt. She was named Private (or Pvt., for short) Puff, for being a private, and also being very puffy.

Pvt. Puff always obeyed her mother's commands, never questioning them. She cleaned the humongous base, prepared the food, did other chores and what-not. For some reason she would never evolve, no matter how much Puffster showed her affection. Did Puffster truly have any love to give? Despite this setback, she decided to let Pvt. Puff try battling for once by the time she seemed capable..

"Well, Puff," she said in her squeaky, not-at-all-commanding voice one day, "I think it is time you tried battling other Pokemon. After all, I cannot fend off enemy armies or teams myself."

Puff was dusting off a cabinet made out of rough stone, while standing on a ladder made out of rough stone. "Well, okaaay," she said in an even squeakier voice.

And that was that.

~~~~~

"This is Beach Cave." Puffster pointed to a rocky cavern lying on the beach. It looked dark and despairing, but Pvt. Puff didn't seem to mind. "Go on. Fight."

Equipped with a trusty broom, the Igglybuff warily entered. Spinning the broom around extremely fast, she knocked out enemy horseshoe crabs left and right! Whenever the Omanyte ganged up on her, she would jump-kick two of them at a time! When a Shellos stole her broom, her lovely song, trademark of their breed, would put it to sleep so she could reclaim it! All was going according to plan...

End of Chapter-

NO! That was only in Puffster's imagination. She hoped that Puff's skills were that awesome. After all, she WAS her child. To not have a capable child would bring shame on her part. And what were the chances of her finding another egg? Breeding was out of the question for her. Even if she found another egg, she remembered the hard work that went into raising the private. Did she really want to go through that again?

Meanwhile, inside of the cave...

Puff couldn't see. Even if light streamed in not far from the dark entrance, she couldn't see. Probably because she was ignorantly holding the broom in front of her face. As she walked cautiously forward, the wooden handle scraped along the rocks and hit a Kabuto's brown shell. It immediately retaliated, grabbing the broomstick and slamming her on the ground with surprising strength and speed.

"Ow!" She looked into the thing's eerie red eyes, surprised she could now see clearly, then merely let go of the broom. The Kabuto proceeded to eat it, pushing it into its black core. The private then remembered something Puffster had taught her: the element of surprise.

"When your enemy is distracted by something else, that is your time to attack. Sneak up from behind, then strike. It is especially easy for a light-footed Igglybuff like you...or a light-footed Jigglypuff like me...anyways, if you cannot surprise them that easily, simply charm them or sing to them..."

That was all Pvt. Puff remembered. It was probably enough. She carefully set her foot atop the shell again. The Pokemon turned around quickly, looking even more vicious than before. Puff fell backwards, stunned by this. "I'm not attacking you!" she lied, and the prehistoric Pokemon calmed down once again. Then she began to sing, "SINNNNNNGGGGGG!" It was hardly a song at all. Kabuto turned around again.

"...Is that really your idea of killing me?" it asked in a surfer-dude-like voice.

"You can talk?" Her eyes widened.

"Yeah. Your loud and obnoxious singing voice has helped me learn the error of my ways. I've lived here for a while, and tried to kill any trespassers that step on me. Now I realize that saying 'Hey! Get off of me!' is enough. Thanks, Igglybuff!"

"O-okay?" First of all, her name wasn't Igglybuff. Second, wasn't she supposed to defeat him in combat, not help him? Maybe helping counted as a knockout?

As Kabuto crawled out of the cave, his legs going fast but barely carrying him forward, Puffster caught him by his supposed neck, her face puffier and angrier than ever before.

"WHY DID YOU NOT KILL THIS POKEMON!?!?" she screeched.

"I-I couldn't! I tried singing, but-"

"She showed me the error of my ways!"

"MY ARMY IS NOT PEACEFUL! We have aspirations of taking over the world. You remember that, yes?" Puff nodded. "If we resorted to peaceful methods, how do you think everyone else would act towards it?"

"They would revolt!" Pvt. Puff was trained to answer this on command.

"Correct! And we cannot risk that, knowing how many other powerful creatures there are out there."

"Do I have to fight?!"

It was the first time the private had questioned her mother. Puffster was startled by this, unknowingly pausing for a moment and choking poor Kabuto even harder. "Well...if you're going to do such a HORRIBLE job as this attacking...no, you do not."

"Well...thanks."

"Erm...your welcome." Where did she learn that language from? Ignoring the thought, she punched Kabuto in the face and tossed him into the ocean. "With a punch like that he'll never remember...well, back to the army base. Come, private." She grabbed Puff by the hand and proceeded to walk back to the manhole cover.

End of Chapter One

I finished! Comments, constructive criticism?

You should write out the '100' in letters, since it's required in a story. :P

Should be 'Diglett'.

Should be 'fluffy'. And Jigglypuff heads are their bodies, too. xD

It's funny, but using 'I' like this makes the story sound narrated. :P But if that's the way the story's gonna be, then that's okay. xD

'for' needs a capital 'f'. :P

1. You need a 'time' between 'the' and 'she'. Also, there're two periods there when there only needs to be one.

Puff was dusting off a cabinet, made out of rough stone, while standing on a ladder, made out of rough stone. [/QUOTE]

I think you should get rid of the commas after 'cabinet' and 'ladder'.

Anyway, I think this is both funny and strange--the idea and story. xD Yeah, mistakes here and there and not too much description of what things looked like, and it was very short. :P But you did say that you didn't have time to finish it. :P I recommend writing it up in Word, because it's much more efficient. :3
But yeah. :P I'd like to see where this goes. xD

I thought Firefox was supposed to point out grammatical errors! O_O Dang. *fixes errors* Actually it did point them out, I just forgot to fix them.

Anyways, I finished the chapter, and now it's about two times the size it was when Graceful_Suicune read it.

Also, it's somewhat based on GPXPlus, where I'm trying to form an army of Igglybuff and its evolutions.

Remember those eggs in peoples' signatures? Those are from Global Pokedex Plus, which a virtual pokemon raising site. It's getting real popular. O_O

Since there are five Pokemon in the group so far, the next chapters should be coming soon.

Chapter Two is done! And since I'm not sure whether Jigglypuffs have paws or hands, I'll just call them hands. :P And this chapter includes a shocking revelation...*gasp* he did remember!

Chapter Two: No, I Am Not a Lord of the Rings Fan!

It was nighttime outside of Treasure Town. A Bagon carried the horseshoe crab in his arms, barely managing to keep his short arms up. The blue dinosaur stood near a manhole cover, the very one that led to the Pink Army base. “This is it,” Kabuto clarified, eyes sparkling. “I saw them going in here!”

“Alright, then,” replied Bagon in a gravelly voice. “Frodo!”

A Larvitar, about his height, seemed to poof into existence right in front of him. “Yes, sir!” he said, as if the Bagon were an army general.

“This is our entrance. Proceed with caution.” His eyes flattened out into slits.

“Yes, sir!” The rock-skinned dragon tossed the cover away noisily, then leaped in carelessly.

“Wait, no! Freddy, wait here!” The Bagon set Freddy the Kabuto on the grass before diving in after Frodo.

After a tunnel about ten feet deep, Frodo landed on a plushy pink rug, releasing dust and making him cough. As he got back up, he realized that around him was a massive underground cavern, fully furnished with basic items such as a pink couch, some pink cabinets, a pink oven, a toaster, and some other things that would never have possibly been able to fit. Maybe he’d like to live here.

“FRODO, YOU IDIOT!!!” Bagon landed on the Larvitar family’s trademark head spike, then sent both of them onto the rug again. “JUST JUMPING IN IS A TERRIBLE PLAN!!!”

“Sorry, Bilbo…I just wanted to help the lair…”

“It’s alright…but DON’T DO IT ANYMORE.”

“Yes, sir.”

All of this discussion awakened a certain Private Puff, who was sleeping in a crib even though she was no longer much of a baby. Her eyes were pulled open, cracked and riddled with red lines from lack of sleep, much different and scarier than they normally were. “Huh…..?” she moaned. She squeezed her rubbery body through the wooden bars, then bounced out. “Ow! Ow! Ouch!” Puff dreaded the rough terrain of the base, but she also dreaded uncontrollably bouncing, and especially hated the two together. She eventually slowed to a halt, and got back onto her feet.

“Which way do you suspect the bedrooms are, sir?”

“Hmm…how should I know?”

The voices were getting quieter, but were obviously noticeably closer now that she walked behind the doorway.

She silently entered the room and asked, “Um, why are you here?” The room fell silent. “S-state your business.”

“Oh, uhh, could we see the Jigglypuff who runs this place?” requested Bilbo.

“Your business with her?”

“Well, we just want to talk to her-“

“About nearly killing a Kabuto, sir.” Frodo saluted, for some reason.

I’m not a sir… A tear developed in Puff’s eye. “I’ll see what I can do.”

Soon, a cranky and tired Jigglypuff was brought in. “What, what is it?” Puffster asked, rubbing one eye. She was so tired, she wouldn’t even resort to beating these kids up right away, the reaction she expected out of herself.

“What is this place, exactly?”

“Why do you ask?”

“We’re in a team, and…..we just…..wanted to know who our allies and enemies are!” Bilbo wasn’t sure how to get the information he needed out of her.

“Name yours.”

“Well, in that case, we’re from the Dragon’s Lair!” The Bagon smiled and rubbed the back of his head.

“Then we are the Pink Army. Now go away.”

“Wait!” Frodo pulled Bilbo off of the rocky ladder that led to the surface. “A Kabuto tells us that you tossed it carelessly into the ocean after gripping him by the neck! Is this true?” He demanded she speak.

He still remembers that? Oh no. Looks like I’m in trouble, she thought sarcastically. Oh. Wait. This could be a dream. Which means I can give them the right information and be safe. But what if it’s not a dream? Oh, the conundrum is killing me!

“ANSWER ME!!”

“Alright, alright. We only use peaceful methods. That Kabuto must have hallucinated.”

“H-he’s really old! And prehistoric!” Puff blurted out. “You can’t expect him to have perfect memory!”

“Correct. And I suggest you leave now, or I have to resort to battle.”

“I DON’T BELIEVE YOU!!”

“Come on, Frodo. Let’s go.” The two sighed, nearly in unison, then climbed up the ladder to modern civilization.

~~~~~

The duo entered a cave, one of the smaller ones in the Dragon’s Lair networking. Still, it was roomy and could house about twenty or thirty Pokemon. The Dragon Soldiers, regardless of letter rank, stayed here. Bilbo was talking to a blue, serpentine Dragonair just inside about last night.

“…the Kabuto knows what he saw. That Jigglypuff couldn’t have good intentions, I swear. Her tone was that of an evil mastermind! How could someone like that only use peaceful methods?”

“I know how you feel,” Kaori replied solemnly. “Once a Pachirisu almost gnawed my tail off.”

A tail? Bilbo started to ponder where her tail started and the body began. “Well, that’s odd…like a crime ring leader who isn’t the stereotypical Honchkrow. Anywho, this team could be VERY dangerous. Do you have any ideas about how I could prove their evil?”

“Do you have to?”

“It’s practically our duty!” the Larvitar butted in. “They pose a threat to our peaceful lair! We have to build a strong defense! We should form an alliance, or destroy them here and now!”

“Whatever you do, I won’t be helping.”

“YOU WON’T!?!?”

“Sorry, Bilbo. It’s just that I want to enter the drawing competition this week and I’ve barely even thought of what egg to draw. So, good luck.” She squiggled away.

Dragonair can draw? Bilbo pondered a second question.

~~~~~

Puffster entered Beach Cave once again. She walked through as usual, thinking over the usual enemy tactics. They throw mud at you, they harden their shells, then they strike… She stepped on a Kabuto, which reared its menacing head at her. She proceeded to knock the living daylight out of it by slamming it against the ground to her opposite side, with all of the power and speed you’d expect from a level one hundred. Its shell cracked, and it lay there to, presumably, faint and/or die.

Bilbo and Frodo hid behind some rocks. Apparently they figured she’d come here, which was a pretty good prediction. “She’s attacking!” Bilbo whispered. “Get the camera!

“Yes, sir!” the ignorant Larvitar boomed.

“Hunh?” The Jigglypuff turned around but saw nothing unusual. “Meh.” She continued to walk.

Bilbo headbutted him square in the chest, his gray crest somehow harder than Frodo’s rough skin. “Anything else that loud and I’ll kill – uh, make you faint.”

“Yikes!” he squeaked, fumbling somewhat with their video camera. It was a recent bit of technology found mysteriously on the beach, then reproduced by Xatu Industries. Hence the Xatu head on the side of the camera.

Puffster punched a pink little Shellos in the squishy stomach, pulled an Omanyte from its shell, and stabbed a Gastrodon multiple times with a stalagmite she ripped from the cave. It was all caught on camera, along with a bunch of other gruesome deaths.

“That should be enough. Now let’s go play it,” Bilbo suggested.

Just outside, they replayed the video, only to find that the images were too dark to actually see. “Oh, shiz!” Frodo near-cursed in what I suppose was an endearing manner. “It’s too dark.”

“We can always go in and take another video, you know.”

“Oh, right, sir.” A sudden tidal wave somehow snatched only the video camera from the Larvitar’s hands, but not anyone else on the beach. “Crap, sir.”

“Curses! It’ll take forever to raise enough money and/or Dragon Points to buy a new one of those!”

“Curse our fate!”

“You’re not helping. You know that, right, Frodo?”

“Now that you’ve told me, yeah…”

“Ah, forget this crap! How about we come again after a long while, go home and get some cookies?”

“Works for me!”

That was how the Dragon’s Lair intersected with the Pink Army…and how they might intersect again.

End of Chapter Two

You don't need that comma. :P

This is really funny. xD I loved the fact that the Larvitar's called Frodo, and that they used Kabuto as being prehistoric Pokemon as a way to slip out of trouble. xD And that Dragon Points thing! xD Nice work. ^^ Keep it up! :D

Posting twice only to post two chapters!

Chapter Three: The Third Member!

Puffster returned to the base one day, after supposedly posting advertisements on trees. Today, she was coming back with something else.

“Hello, my lord!” Private Puff greeted, happily dusting off the neatly-placed books on the stone cabinet. “Puffster-dono, what’s behind your back?” She didn’t question how she got down the ladder so easily with just one hand; after all, she WAS a level one hundred.

“Try to stop reading my manga, my servant. ‘My lord’ is fine, thanks.” Puffster calmly walked towards the oven.

Pvt. Puff gasped. “Using the oven!? You’ve hardly used it! And - - that’s how you had me!

“Correct.” She inserted another Igglybuff egg, placing it on top of a tin tray and setting the oven to 120 degrees.

"YOU’RE HAVING A BABY! AAAHHHHH…” She nearly swooned. Then she zoomed close to the oven and started asking random annoying questions. “Does it have a name? When does it hatch? Does it look like me? Did I look like it? Will it get too hot? Did I get too hot? Will it-“

“No, it’s not named yet. I named you after careful consideration and deep thought, did I not?” Which was a lie, since naming someone “Puff” normally doesn’t take too long, nor did she think on it for so long. “It’ll hatch in a few days, it looks like you, you looked like it, it won’t get too hot and neither did you. No more questions.”

“But will it be a boy?”

“NO MORE QUESTIONS.” As Puffster retreated to her room, Pvt. Puff gazed in awe at the egg in the oven. Was she really that small, four inches shorter than she was that day? A bunch of other mysteries of life entered her mind. How was the egg made? Where did Puffster find it? How did Puffster find it? Who made the egg? Where did HER egg come from? If only she’d asked some different questions, but if Puffster demanded otherwise, so it shall be…

Surprisingly, the egg hatched in only about twelve hours that night. Puffster figured out she’d accidentally set the oven temperature to 180 degrees. Whoops, my mistake, she thought, hoping maybe it would yield a better warrior. This Igglybuff was incredibly similar to Puffster, as was just about anyone else of the species. The private loomed over it as the mother held the baby in her rounded hands.

Puff gasped. “The BABY!! AAAHHHHH…” At her words, the baby glanced at her, but was quickly amused by the sight of a nearby couch.

“What shall we name this child?”

Puff gasped again. “You mean you still haven’t decided on its name!?”

“No, I haven’t, private. Do you have any ideas?”

She began blurting out random names. “Sammy! Persimmon! Betty!”

“Those are terrible names,” she replied bluntly.

Maybe Puffster had an obsession with puffiness? After all, they BOTH had “Puff” in their names. “Puffie? Puffykins? Pufftown? Puff-“

“STOP. JUST STOP. I have already decided your names are rubbish and will not be useful to me.”

“Bu -but- -b-but…“ Tears shimmered in her eyes, seemingly expanding. The other Igglybuff only glanced at her again, and then let its mind wander again. “I-it can’t live without a name! You yourself told me I only began to develop a personality after you’d named me!”

“Don’t get too emotional. On the other hand, please do. I believe that being raised in harsh situations makes one mentally stronger.”

Being overdramatic, Puff cried into her hands, her sobbing painfully loud and obnoxious. Just like her singing voice! Puffster and the baby seemed to only ignore her as they went into some other room.

~~~~~

For Puffster, raising this child was almost exactly like raising Private Puff, only Puff was always hanging over her shoulder this time around. When Puffster was telling her (yes, it was female) stories about her in Beach Cave, Puff would listen in. When she was outside experiencing stuff, Puff would beg to come along. With all of this attention (if one considers that a lot), the thing didn’t even have a name, and hardly spoke anyways.

One day, when Puffster was reluctantly hugging the child on the couch, it started glowing! “WHAAAAA!?!?” Puffster shouted, as white light beamed from the Pokemon’s body.

Pvt. Puff, who was still over her shoulder, gasped. “HUG POWER!!!” she cheered, raising her supposed fist.

“Shut up! It’s not hug power…it’s evolution.”

“Evo-?” the glowing Igglybuff inquired, using its voice for once. It soon metamorphosised into a grown Jigglypuff, which looked almost exactly like Puffster! She put her adopted child back down, who just stood and stared at herself.

“Evolution!?” Puff had never heard of this! “So - - so I could become a Jigglypuff like you two!?”

“Theoretically. But since it’s been so long I doubt you ever will-“ Her lip quivered. The salty tears in her eyes grew large. The private ran to her room, sobbing into her hands. Puffster did a facepalm, shaking her head. “Come on, Rhino-“

“Rhino!?” Now was a horrible time for her to get a name! “A name?” she asked, using her voice more if only to hear herself speak. “And why that name?”

“No questions. You are now Rhino. It was a spur-of-the-moment thing. Let us go check on Puff.” She tugged on Rhino’s arm and brought her tone of the last rooms in the hallway, before it turned a corner.

Puff cried into the pillow in her crib, crying loud and obnoxiously as expected. “W-why won’t I evolve!?” she shouted to nobody in particular. “I’m the only Igglybuff here! I-I could’ve b-become-“ She looked up and saw the two in the doorway. “Y-y- - please go away right now.”

“Will an inspirational speech calm you down?” Puffster asked, sounding as professional as ever.

“…I-it would make me feel better about myself…”

“Private Puff, you are perfectly fine as you are. Everybody is unique. Peer pressure should never get you down, or make you feel worse about yourself. The truth is, Igglybuffs are better at some things than Jigglypuffs, or even Wigglytuffs. For example…..err…..you’re very elastic, moreso than any other Pokemon.”

“You really think so!?” Puff’s eyes sparkled with inspiration.

“Yes. I really think so. And in stealthy situations, you are much softer and lighter than many, so you can go undetected.”

“Is that true!?!?”

“Would I lie to you?” Of course she would. “Feeling better now?”

“Uh-huh!” All of her tears were instantly gone, somehow!

Phew. Dodged that bullet. “Now that that’s over with, I’m going to go out and do…stuff. You watch Rhino here.”

“Wha…?”

Default Re: The Pink Army

The Clefable, wrapped up in a long red scarf, bid his tearful farewell. In the midst of violent snow, he placed the egg into some bushes nearby. “Lupo!” he cried, still trying desperately to brave the pounding winds against him. The snow swiftly pushed him off his feet, and sent the fairy flying off to his unfortunate grave. The Igglybuff would have to survive on its own.

Chapter Four: Lupo

Puffster and Rhino were posting papers on trees, the better to advertise their army. Even if it was meant to be a complete secret, a little advertisement couldn’t hurt, right? Actually, these were supposedly advertising a singing competition that wouldn’t bore people to sleep, but it was obviously for the army.

Something caught Rhino’s eye. Something small and pink in the trees. “Look!” she gasped a bit overdramatically, pointing but not going after it.

Her mother looked just in time to see it run by them. “Huh?” she asked nobody in particular. “Well, go catch the thing! Gawd, it’s like I have to command your every action here!” She sighed.

Rhino nodded, dashing into the patch of trees they saw it in. The Igglybuff may have been fast, but she was faster, and Rhino caught it by the leg, hopping off of a tree. The Igglybuff proceeded to fall on its face.

“Wha!?” it shouted in a strangely-masculine not-Igglybufflike-in-the-least voice. “Let go. NOW,” he demanded.

Rhino gasped. “A MALE member!”

“What? Member of what? And besides, I’m female.”

It seemed as if Rhino’s face was now frozen in a state of permanent shock and disgust. She dangled the puffball by its foot, leaving HER to punch the air and babble crap about how she’s going to beat her up and such. That odd facial expression was broken by Puffster’s strangely-commanding voice.

“Rhino!” The other ‘Puff walked into the scene.

“Yes?” Her face changed to normal as her body straightened out.

“First of all, good work on your capture, but next time be prepared for the situation.” How many times are Igglybuffs going to run through the nearby trees?

“Capture!?” The word only stirred the Igglybuff even more.

“Yes ma’am!”

“Now, report back to base, and don’t let that Pokemon escape.”

~~~~~

Puffster set the Igglybuff down on the couch, in front of Private Puff. “Puff, this is Lupo. Lupo, this is Puff. Not that you really need to know that,” she remarked. The two only stared for a while. “My work here is done,” Puffster stated, and she left the room. Pvt. Puff lightly jabbed Lupo’s squishy side.

“Oww! Don’t DO THAT,” he commanded, placing his arms behind his back.

“And why not?” Puff proceeded to poke his wide-open eye.

“OUCH!!” She gripped it in pain, causing even more pain! “That’s it…time for you to DIE!!” What was supposed to be dramatic and cool turned out to be a failure, with the knives on his back now gone. No way…they took my knives? I’m nothing in combat without… Her lower jaw quivered in sorrow, for some reason.

“I’m not dying yet! Silly boy~”

“I keep telling you weirdos, I’m female!” Lupo growled.

Puff gasped, once again. “You sound so different…that I only assumed…”

“It’s years of being in the wild that does that to you. I’ve been surviving in the wilderness longer than you can imagine.”

“There are so many flaws in your statement, Lupo! Like how you can talk, how you can recognize a knife, how you’re apparently still so weak-“

“Weak!? I could kill you…ten times over!”

“What?”

“See me try! Hooah!” Lupo punched Puff in the stomach, not really damaging anything.

“……..And?”

“That’s all I got, uh…” Lupo really didn’t plan this far. “Wait for me to see if there’s any weaponry over…” While she wasn’t looking, Pvt. Puff had run off somewhere! “Guess I can try to escape now,” Lupo said with a smirk. She grabbed a wooden ladle mysteriously laying around and proceeded to climb the ten-foot-tall ladder to the world. Unfortunately, she remembered that a giant heavy manhole was covering the exit. “Curse my…urrghh!” She tried to push up against the giant heavy manhole cover, but ended up losing balance and falling down onto the pink plushy carpet.

“Lupo,” Puffster said, coming in, “I have already told you, there is no way out. I will keep an eye on you at all times.”

“Not when you’re blinking, you’re not!” I win this one! thought Lupo.

“Then I’ll wink.” She winked with one eye, then immediately shifted to the other.

“Darnit.” Lupo immediately accepted her fate.

“And because I am at level one hundred and possess awesome tracking skills, I will pursue you even when – and IF – you do escape. You’d best act useful or be punished. Go to your room. It’s near the end of the hallway, next to the private’s.”

“Roger?”

Walking towards her new room she thought, What am I DOING here? I don’t belong here! My home is in the trees! The forest! And now somebody has taken ME without permission. KIDNAPPING – that’s the word. But is escape an option? Oho. I’ve just hatched a brilliant plan, haven’t I? Lupo is genius.

Just wait until you reach level one hundred. Then you may have your revenge, Lupo…


Obviously this plot was not nearly as effective as Lupo would have liked to think. It would take years upon years for a Pokemon of such fail as her to accomplish such status as her new leader…

End of Chapter Four

Chapter Five: PG-13! Children, Be Warned!

Now that the team had three members that were ready for combat, Puffster decided to go on a mission to Mt. Heaven. They would only go so far as the third floor, for the Pokemon above there might surely kill at least Lupo. Their mission: to find the precious Moon Stone, the item capable of mutating a Jigglypuff to its highest form! These days the stones were incredibly rare, even in caves, so they would have to get lucky on this mission.

Unlike Beach Cave, this cave really WAS dangerous. Whereas Beach Cave was filled with a bunch of wimps, Mt. Heaven was SERIOUS BUSINESS. Its inhabitants were NOT wimps. In fact, they practically lived to fight. It might have been called Heaven, but fierce brawls went on inside of there every day. Heck, this wasn’t even fainting; this was BLOOOOOD! GOOOOORE! VIOLENNNNNCE! DEEEEEATH! No wonder even level one hundreds hardly ventured there.

“I heard there’s gore, blood, violence and death here!” Lupo said, obviously excited. The new, puffy trio was walking down a grassy hill. “This is gonna be good! By the way, when can I have my knives back? I feel embarrassed using this SILLY ladle.” Yes, Lupo still possessed the ladle.

“I loaned them to Rhino,” Puffster replied in the usual mellow way. Rhino was holding two butter knives.

“These are butter knives! Why?” She was understandably disappointed.

“Too bad. Hey, we’re here.” They now stood at the foot of the mountain, a two-mile-high natural wonder. In order to reach the interior, they were forced to travel up the infamous Thin Ledge of Doom. It was so thin and so windy a Graveler could hardly balance atop it! Wait, isn’t it normally hard for them to balance? Oh well, who cares. “Off to the Thin Ledge of Doom!”

“Please don’t say it like that. It frightens me.” Lupo gripped his wooden ladle as tightly as he could.

“And stop failing.” Puffster inched along the Thin Ledge of Doom, standing on the tips of her toes. She did it quickly and with no problem, even against gale-force winds. After about a minute she reached the cave’s entrance, above where the other two were still standing. “Come up here! Don’t just wait!” she howled through the wind.

“Okay…here I go…Lupo…is going…NOW…” After much self-persuasion, the Igglybuf finally edged herself onto the ledge, sweating wildly as the wind struck her face. She just kind of stood there for a little while, then finally kept going…sssllllooooowwwwllllyyyyyyyy.

“Would you hurry up!?!?”

“I’m trying, Puffster!” As she cried, Lupo looked like an overreacting anime character. “I’m trying my hardest!”

“Try harder!”

After twenty long, hard minutes, the Igglybuff FINALLY made it. Puffster punched her in the face upon her arrival. “Ouch! What was that for? I made it, didn’t I?”

“You did it too slowly.”

By comparison, Rhino arrived in about four minutes. Good, considering this was her first actual mission. “Good work, Rhino,” Puffster said, patting her on the back. “Now, to enter the Cavern of Death.” If you haven’t guessed already, the Cavern of Death was a place where Pokemon died. Without hesitation, Puffster led her troops into the cave.

Blood was smeared down the walls, all over the floor, matted in fur. Ear-splitting screeches came from all angles (even from outside). A Zubat’s leg-tail-thing twitched as it lay helpless on the ground in yet another pool of blood. “And you’re sure we shouldn’t turn back,” Lupo asked.

“I thought I made that clear!” Puffster slapped Lupo in the face.

“Ow!”

“Rhino, Lupo! You go left. I will go right. If you get severely injured, just wait outside or call extremely loudly for me.” The Jigglypuff ran away, splashing more blood all over the place. Lupo and Rhino shrugged, having no choice but to follow her orders.

Puffster was beating up all of the Pokemon she came across with ease. A colony of Zubats swarmed over her, but through using a series of jump-kicks and drop-kicks she was able to kill them all in under a minute. A Clefable waggled its finger at her, sending a massive wave of water at her. By merely standing still Puffster was able to not only survive, but stand in the same area without budging. She proceeded to sing, but not the prolonged typical “Jigglypuff Song”. With a single high note she stopped nearly everything and everyone in their tracks, and was able to easily beat them up afterwards. In the midst of all of this, a lone Tyranitar was able to survive the gory mess. Puffster wiped the blood from her face before proceeding to brawl one-on-one. The green rocky behemoth sent her flying against the wall in one titanic punch, knocking some stalactites onto her in the process. Not to be outdone, the Jigglypuff continuously rolled in place, getting faster and faster with each revolution. Of course, blood also splattered all over the place. The Tyranitar braced himself for the impact, but was nowhere near the defensive level he should have been at. Puffster released her built-up energy and flew directly through Tyranitar’s heart, nearly effortlessly killing him. The room was now painted red…with blood.

Meanwhile, Rhino and Lupo were having a hard time being awesome. It was rather hard for Rhino to slice through the approaching wide-mouthed Golbats with butter knifes, and it was also rather hard for Lupo to do any damage at all with his fists alone. Though Rhino was at least fending off enemies, Lupo was being bitten in her tuft of hair, which didn’t hurt but left her vulnerable!

“Rhino!” she cried. “My knives!”

“But Puffster said-“

“HAND THEM OVER!!”

Rhino tossed the knives painfully into Lupo’s side. Without so much as a grunt, she ripped the bloody things out and cut the Golbat’s cornea (its eye)!

“WRRRYYYYYY!” it shouted, pulling away. The Golbat’s eye was spurting out blood as it flew away.

More bat Pokemon were closing in on them, and Rhino tried her best to fend them off by kicking. Had there been only a few this would have worked well, but she only had two feet, which were very floppy and took long to kick with. It also looked funny because she was shifting from foot to foot as she kicked.

I have to do something…! Lupo thought the obvious. “Ancient Knife Technique: Aka-Nyuurakunaifu Shuhouuuuuuu!!!!!” Her eyes grew a threatening scarlet as her whole body ignited with flaming blood-red aura! She bounced around the room at hyper speed, slicing through bat after bat as she went. Bloody carcasses and bloody remains were scattered around the bloody floor, and blood-covered Rhino watched in amazement while also wiping the blood off of her face. When Lupo finally landed, she too was covered in blood. Lupo shook it off like a Poochyena, wiggling it off to fly around the rest of the room. “Now to find the Moon Stone…”

The two searched the room (but not thoroughly), but didn’t find any stones that remotely resembled the Moon Stone, the mineral they said was black as night. All they found were blood-smothered brown rocks. They then proceeded to the next room in the Cavern of Death.

This room was actually dark…and surprisingly scary. Now that Rhino and Lupo knew what it was like to bleed, they were on their toes. As they tiptoed through, Lupo’s squishy foot was squeezed by a hand below, and as expected, blood was squeezed out!

“Urghh!” She tried to pull away, but the hand wouldn’t let her.

Rhino was slowly regaining vision. “The Nyuurakunaifu!” she shouted, wondering why Lupo wasn’t using her ancient technique.

“I’m too tired to use that!”

As Rhino attempted to help her she stepped on some leaves, which revealed a deep pit! Her scream as she fell in made Lupo more uncomfortable than she already was.

PUFFSTERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

At the sound of her echo, Puffster came in atop a Rapidash, whom she was pulling the fiery mane of. The yellow horse looked quite uncomfortable. Its hair somehow brought light to the cave, revealing that a Graveler had just grabbed Lupo. “And that is all that stopped you?” She bent down and slapped the Graveler’s wrist.

“Ow!” the rock monster said, pulling away. The Igglybuff hit the ground face-first, getting blood all over.

“B-but that’s not all!” Lupo said, shaking away the blood. “Rhino fell down a hole!”

“Then let me deal with it.” Puffster punched Rapidash hard in the forehead, possibly causing some trauma and knocking it out. The two puffy things then leaped down the hole. Lucky for them they were elastic and bouncy, so they enjoyed a soft landing on the hard rock.

Holding some of the Rapidash’s hair, Puffster and Lupo could plainly see a bunch of abnormally-sized Tyranitars looming over them. One of them screeched, “YOU KILLED OUR CHIIIILLLLLLLDDD!!!” Lupo cowered in fear and hid behind his leader.

As the angry rock dinosaurs slowly walked over, some tripping and being unable to move, Puffster said in her usual, dictating, calm voice, “This is a perfect opportunity to use my new attack. Have you ever heard of Perish Song, Lupo?”

“Y-y-no….”

“This is two steps further. This is the Death Song. Though I believe our family is impervious to it, you’d better close your ear holes, lest you want nightmares.” So Lupo did, scampering off somewhere else as Pufftster sang her Death Song.

The first note was a high-pitched screech, barely higher than the average Pokemon’s screech. This was followed by a very quick, very low note. She paused for a half second, then continued with another shrill, lower-pitched scream. The very short tune ended with an even higher-pitched yell. You’d have to be an Igglybuff, Jigglypuff or Wigglytuff in order to pull off the song as she could. At the sound of this tune, every Tyranitar’s ears began to spurt blood, fall over and make spastic movements. After a few enjoyable moments (at least for Puffster) of watching them die, Lupo and Puffster were able to safely cross the areas between the rock dinos. Inside of one of their mouths was Rhino! Without the teeth clamping over the exit, she was able to escape!

“The Moon Stone!” She pointed inside of the mouth. “Should I get it?”

“Well, sure,” Puffster said, her voice slightly hoarse.

As Rhino ventured inside of the mouth for a few seconds, a flash of light consumed the room! Then she emerged, completely different in appearance and size. She now had rabbit ears, and was about a foot taller than her commander! As if nothing had happened, she handed Puffster the stone, who just stared at her blankly. The Moon Stone itself was beautiful, but if it couldn’t evolve her into a Jigglypuff, what use was it?

“…I…..will come back here myself…..” She threw the rock in the Wigglytuff’s face and walked away puffy-headed.

End of Chapter Five
