    Conquest: Chapter 6

    FELIX POV<p>A girl, who had her DN<_>A altered with Pokemon ge<_>nes, was standing before the former It<_>alian di<_>ctator. "I want you to hunt these people down. They are a threat to my conquest," said Felix. He showed the teenager five pictures, one of them a Pokemon. Felix caught a look of disapproval from the girl, but he knew she'll do it anyway. "Okay, where are they?"<br>"Beachsand City. But not now. Want until they go on thier way."<br>She nodded, and flew away.<p>PIXEL POV<p>When we got there, I noticed that most of the crowd weren't even fighting back! Probably because they were scared out of thier minds. The few that were fighting was a Shiny Charizard with blue eyes, 3 humans, a Mega Charizard X, and, to my surprise, a Lugia. We also helped fight the so<_>ldiers and robots. I used Po<_>ison Tail on one unfortunate so<_>ldier and Thunder Punch on a robot. One of the so<_>ldiers tried to run away...but ended up in my face. I only said one, simple word: "Boo." And I Headbutted him, knocking the so<_>ldier out. Soon, the so<_>ldiers retreated, and Anna and I took out the last two robots. The crowd scattered (What? No cheers?), leaving us with the ones who actually fought. "You know, you never said who you guys are," said the Victini. Anna, Matt, Natalie, Lance, and I introduced ourselves. "I'm Victoria, though some people call me Nightlock or Deathberries, because they think I'm a bad omen," the blue Victini said.<br>"I'm Vivian," the Shiny Umbreon introduced herself. "The Shiny Charizard is Utopia, and the one you saw as in his Mega Evolution is Skyler. Skyler's partner is F." The guy with a robotic arm said he was Jet, and the only human girl said "I'm Alex, and this is my partner, Lugia." "Woah! A Legendary for a partner? Now that's something you don't see everyday," Matt commented. "Yep. Why are you here?" Alex asked. "We're going to take down Felix," I said. "Oh. You'll need to go through the monster-infested haunted house in the north of the city, though." "But can't we just take a clear path?" said Natalie. "That's the only path you can take to Coppergear Town."<br>"Wow, a monster-infested haunted house," I muttered. "We'll come with you. Plus, Alex knows a friend there," said Utopia. Sadly, I'm still not enthused about it. "Let's get this over with," I said as we all walked towards the haunted house.<p>((Got all the character apps in! Epicness out!))
