As Paiyu's conversation with her parents continued, going off on many tangents, she began to hear a very faint but high-pitched noise, like the squeaking of a rodent Pokemon. At first she shrugged it off as some kind of auditory hallucination, but not only did it persist, it seemed to be getting progressively louder too. "Mom... Dad... is it just me, or are you hearing that too?" the disquieted trainer asked. Being much older than their daughter, and thus less able to hear high frequencies, both parents strained to hear the strange noise she was describing, but it had become much louder before - which could only mean that its source was getting closer to the family - so they eventually sensed it too. "It's not you, sweetie. There really is something..." Paiyu's mom replied. Now all three could hear the sound clearly - a distressed shrieking that didn't sound human. The trainer's dad suggested that someone had, accidentally or intentionally, let their small Pokemon loose in the boat at best, but was interrupted by a particularly loud, plaintive squeal before Paiyu cried out, startled by something that had grabbed her legs. "What the - Eli?" she looked down in disbelief to see her green friend in tears, "What happened?" The gem girl explained through sobs and squeaks that she had temporarily lost her ability to speak after being swamped by extreme paranoia from being left alone. "You don't have to be afraid..." Paiyu began to comfort her, "we'll always be there for you. You don't need to worry... you don't need to scream." Her parents nodded in agreement, Dad softly putting his hand on the green girl's shoulder.

Even though Eli hoped as hard as she could for her friend to crank out any sort of advice, the young trainer apologized and admitted she couldn't figure out anything else that had made the green girl in such an unsatisfied state. The small chateruse professor glanced up at her friend, with her head buried into the young trainer's lap. "It's okay," she replied in a cold yet hopeful tone. "It's okay. Maybe things are meant to not be understood until we have the clues to find what it all means." Eli gave a warm embrace, snuggling with her friend while her best buddy hugged her back. The duo then decided to marvel at the large, open sea. Plenty of Mantines and Magikarp lept out of the water, with a couple of Lapras floating by casually. There were even a couple natural, unclaimed small islands that Eli had thought of wanting to own someday.

But before she could let out a word about her dreams, Paiyu told the green girl that she wanted to go see her parents for a couple of minutes, since they probably miss her and all. "Of course! She squeaked happily. "Whatever floats youe boat, Paiyu! Get it? Boat? Sorry, bad pun." The young trainer gave off a quick giggle before heading out into the bumpy third class section of the motorboat. Eli, on the other hand, decided to sink her tiny body into the blue, velvet seats. She laid down into the longer end, glancing at her tiny green hand that peeked out of her oversized lab coat sleeve. She analyzed it; trying to figure out why her smaller form made her feel like crap, despite learning so many lessons and making back plenty of friends and family members. After staring at it for a while, a flash of her normal human hand came and went before her eyes. But then, it hit her: The change in perspective and physicality had been so drastic that it made it hard for her to go back and do her taller, normal self's activities again. As a small Peridot, she had to constantly glance up at stuff in order to get a good view of them. Whenever there were crowds of people, instead of having a good view of the sights around her, all she saw from her perspective were people's stomachs... Not a pleasant sight to look at when she's in a beautiful region like Alola. And now that the antidote wore off, the perspective sickness of hers felt even worse than before. Eli gave off a semi-depressed sigh. If she didn't have taken the antidote, she wouldn't have felt as sick since being tall was so long ago.

A couple minutes of moping later, Paiyu didn't seem to return. "What the heck?" She questioned. "Why isn't Paiyu coming back? Is she really that deep in her conversation with her parents?" Paranoia started kicking into her tiny body, filling her mind with proposterous scenarios of what could happen without Paiyu like a Pokemon poacher barging in to grab anything that looked like a Pokemon to him (including Eli), having the motorboat hit a buoy or rock only for them to be separated on both sides of the ship, or even a Gyarados leaping out of the water to eat the young trainer and her parents. Tears in her eyes, she attempted to cry for Paiyu to return, but only a silent squeak came from her mouth. Quickly covering the noise with her sleeve-enveloped tiny hands, she started to sweat uncontrollably and question why she let out a mere squeak instead of saying help. "What is going on!?" She muttered to herself. "Is this what happens when I'm extremely bro-" but then another squeak came out of her. It seemed like she was becoming less human the more she felt broken inside her tiny body, and she not only needed Paiyu out of necessity, but for her to stay sane and human as well. She couldn't bare to sit here and let her feral nature take over her. It was time for her to take action. Eli then rolled herself off the circularly-placed seats, pushing herself to the door and squealing, "Help, Paiyu! I- *Squeak!* Need you! My... *Squeak!* Humanity's going haywire without you, and I *Squeak squeak!* can't *Squeak!* hold-" Although her personality remained, all her English was gone and got translated into squeaks. She attempted to run towards where her parents were, but tripped on the ground and fell, deciding to crawl herself there. "*Squeak! Squeak!! Squeak!!! Squeak squeak!? Squeeeak..." Eli squealed with great sadness, becoming untranslatable at this point.

Eventually, she weakly crawled herself with one hand over to Paiyu and her parents, who were talking about modifying their home to make it more suitable for Eli's height before the green girl let out a saddened untranslatable squeak. She went up to Paiyu, who was sitting on a chair next to her parents, and gave her a distressed yet grateful hug. With tears in her eyes, she attempted to speak English now that she's found the source of her humanity. "*Squeak!* *Squeak!*-iyu...?" She squeaked, finally getting her English back as she wiped away her tears and glanced at Paiyu cutely. " I... There's a reason why I can't be alone for too long. If I'm given nothing to do besides glance at my rPhone, my paranoia makes me end up only speaking in squeaks that can be untranslatable. It's not as bad as losing all of humanity since I still have my personality, but... You're the only one who's brought me back to normal, and it makes sense that good friends like you and your Pokemon have made me reform to who I used to be and really am."

When Paiyu had finished her possible explanation about her friend's lingering bad thoughts, Eli responded that she appreciated the help, but also pointed out that it wasn't the best advice. While it had worked on Paiyu herself, the green girl explained that she couldn't simply forget because her reminders of the past were not only mental, but physical as well with every feature that contributed to her non-humanity. Her frustration mounting, the gem girl claimed that, even with the tallness antidote, there was positively no way that she could let go of her bad memories. She also mentioned something about Flaire being Paiyu's only physical remembrance before breaking off to calm herself, burying her head into the trainer's lap and whimpering about how even though she had earned her happy ending, there was still something preventing her from enjoying it all. "I really don't know then, Eli... I'm sorry that my advice wasn't what you were looking for." Paiyu apologized to her tiny green friend. But once again, Eli said that she appreciated the trainer's advice as well as their friendship. They then embraced in silence before sitting back up to look at the seascape.

As the girls admired the view, Paiyu suddenly had the notion to leave the first class area and talk to her parents. "Hey Eli, I hope you don't mind if I go out for a minute or two. Just gonna go and check on my parents." when the green girl obliged, Paiyu promptly got off her seat and tried to find the way around the boat to where her family was. "Hey Mom. Hey Dad." the trainer greeted them as she sat down on an empty seat next to them. They then began to talk about whether they should make some little modifications around the house for Eli.

A few seconds later, Paiyu explained to her green friend that the reason why Eli was so down in the dumps about her smallness was because of her past. She even connected the green girl's predicament to her reoccuring Arashi dream; saying that she thought her Quilava pal was dead, but then as time went on, she found out that he escaped Team Rocket's abuse and went out looking for it's trainer. The young trainer then concluded that these bad thoughts can be delusions that can go away the more they discover the truth. Unfortunately, it wasn't so easy for Eli to simply forget those memories and call it a day. She had been through so much that those awful thoughts had dug into her head, festering until she wanted to remember them again. In a way, her brain was too big to simply turn off those thoughts like she used to as a human, despite being small herself.

After looking out the curved window in awe from the big blue Alolan ocean for a couple of seconds, she turned to her friend and squeaked, "I appreciate the advice, Paiyu, and I'm glad you were able to resolve that Arashi problem, but for me, it's not as easy for me to simply forget what happened in the past anymore like my human self could do." She looked down at her right tiny green hand that just so happened to peek out of her lab coat sleeve and continued on as she stared at it and sighed. "My own tiny green body is a constant reminder of those crappy memories, whether I have my lab coat on or not, and because I'm stuck like this forever, it's impossible for me to call my memories 'delusions' when I'm reminded 24/7 about them! For you, it's easy to simply forget about your trauma. You've got no scars on you or any physical reminders of your past that can't be cured. The only Pokemon that can come close to reminding you of Arashi is Flairie the Quilava, and even then, you can keep him in a Pokeball until you need him again. For me, there's no way for me to truly forget unless I'm tall again, and even then, the antidote's effects are temporary! I know I haven't came across any unreachable shelves yet, but what if I have to reach for something at your house!? Even after asking for help, I can't forget about something like that, can I!?" Although no tears flowed from her eyes, Eli felt really frustrated now that her question was set back at square one, a mystery that both of them couldn't possibly solve. After pausing for five seconds to calm herself down, she glanced up at her friend with adorable, olive-colored eyes before laying her head down on her friend's lap. "Look, Paiyu," She squeaked. "Even when a story has a happy ending, there's always some regretful critiques that come afterwards. As much as I want to imagine myself to be tall and forget, it'll never work, not even for a second. But you know, I still appreciate you for trying to help, and I'm glad I'm friends with you and your Pokemon. Have you got any other thoughts of why I still have thundering rainclouds over me, or have you got nothing?"

After everyone had boarded the boat, it left the dock and began its slow journey to Ula'Ula Island. Looking out of the curved window of the first-class section, Paiyu marveled at the azure Alolan sea, the sea that she had missed while in Soras. As the trainer watched a group of Mantine leap out of the water, her friend called for her. "Yeah?" she responded kindly. Her green friend went on to admit that even though person after person she had met treated her well, even loved her for who, not what, she was, she still felt that there was something bad about her new, tiny self that she couldn't shake off. However, she didn't know what that something could be.

"Hmm..." Paiyu tried to think what could be keeping her friend from being happy. "You know what... maybe it's from the past. I don't want to remind you of anything specific, but I think that those memories, about times when you thought being small had no upsides, and times when it actually showed, is what's making you feel so bad... but now you know that, in reality, it's not so bad. Perhaps you should let those memories go... think of them as being delusions. That's kind of what I did with my own bad memories too..." she paused, wondering whether she should talk about her dream. "We're slowly seeing the truth, the good in our predicaments... I used to think Arashi was dead, or worse, but Mewtwo said otherwise. I saw what happened to him in a dream... It was just as I imagined." she stopped; this was nothing to cry about. "They - those Team Rocket people - actually tortured him with their other Pokémon. But he stayed strong... he even evolved and escaped. Yes - he's not only alive, but probably even searching for me too. Now I can shake off the thought - the delusion - that he is dead. You can do the same, Eli; who's called you bad names these past few days? Nobody. Have there been any shelves out of your reach? Not yet. The past is the past... it may not change, but now is what can." the trainer finished.

"Yeah," Eli giggled, letting the warmth of the fluffy chair envelop her tiny body. "I never thought this region would warm up to me so quickly, though!" The green girl was in such a happy mood, not feeling the motorboat's motion as it took off into the seas since she and her friend were both in first class, but something kept lurking in her mind. Something that never went away, even with all the friends and family she regained. It was... The absense of feeling tall and mighty. Now that she was so close to the ground, there was no way she could feel the weather up there, even with the highest of high heels. She pulled up the bottom half of her oversized lab coat to reveal her tiny legs and feet, using the lifted end as a blanket. She looked down at her little green feet, attempting to touch the ground with her toes, but she could only reach it by shoving herself closer to it's smooth surface. Eli felt pathetic. How could she get sad about something as petty as this when her friends and family are now fine with her appearance? The green girl dropped the rest of her oversized lab coat down onto the ground and thought about what would happen if the lab accident was prevented. Would she still be friends with Paiyu? How would she have gotten to Soras or Alima without the help of her Pokemon? Would her Pokemon even exist!? In a way, she thought of her predicament as a blessing and a curse: Blessed to meet so many new friends, but cursed to live as an extremely short Peridot monster for all of time. It felt like a bittersweet ending for her. After being so deep in thought, Eli decided to relay her thoughts to her friends, knowing it would take a while to go to Malie City from a mere glance out the curved window.

"Hey Paiyu," she squeaked to her friend. "I've had this feeling all bundled up in my mind, and I just want to let it out since we're best friends. It's just... *sigh* No matter how many friends I make or family members I win back, it can't get rid of the fact that I'm forever stuck being... Well... Small. I mean, look at me, Paiyu! All my life, I've always felt the weather up there, and now I'll never know what it feels like again! I'm stuck being closer to the ground, trapped in a small body that I can never be freed from, no matter how many antidotes I shove into my face. I know I should love my appearance. I know there are benefits to being like this. And I know people love me for who I am now! So why is it that a dark cloud of regret still lingers over me, even with newfound happiness?!" Although devastated, she didn't cry a single tear. Instead, she looked down at her toes that peeked out of her oversized lab coat in frustration. "I just can't comprehend why I still feel like crap sometimes." She growled, seeking desperate help from her friend. "Do you have any idea why I'm always like this?"

As they sat down to wait to board the boat, Paiyu saw Eli take out her rPhone, presumably to browse memes. Before she asked her friend to send her some, however, the peridot girl suddenly covered her face with her drooping lab coat sleeves, as if she saw something terrifying. "What's the matter, Eli? You look like you've seen a ghost or something!" Paiyu asked. The green girl explained, voice quivering, that she had seen one of her former colleagues from the Aether Foundation, whose name she couldn't remember. The trainer didn't know what to say about that; was that lady one of those Aethers who rejected Eli, or was she sympathetic? Her thoughts were interrupted when she heard a voice behind her; the trainer turned to see - surprise surprise - a woman with purple hair tied in a ponytail, wearing standard-issued Aether employee attire. Speak of Giratina...

But before the trainer could make up an excuse to say that the Aether girl was mistaken, and lure her away from her frightened friend, Eli spoke first, essentially giving away her predicament. But instead of backing away in fear, the lady reassured her ex-colleague that she wasn't as monstrous as she thought. Reluctantly, Eli moved her sleeves away from her face, exposing the green skin. But instead of being frightened or squicked out, the purple-haired girl picked her old friend up and baby-talked her about how positively adorable she had become, much like how the green girl had talked to Caramella. When Eli asked why she wasn't afraid, the Aether lady explained that she had heard about what happened in Almia, and thus cast off the impression of her former coworker being a monster, and saw her as a hero. When they were done talking about it, Paiyu added, "And I helped!"
They both stared at her, but the awkwardness was broken when the Aether girl exclaimed, "Oh my Arceus! You really did? That's so cool!" and Paiyu gave a brief recount of what she did, like rescuing the trapped Pokemon and all. But before she could finish the story, the purple-haired lady said that she had to leave, being the captain of the boat they were about to embark on. As she announced that it was time to board, she told the girls that they were allowed to enter the first-class section of the boat. "Oh, wow! Thank you... wait, I never got your name. Sorry... but thanks again!" the trainer called after the purple-haired captain. She then went to tell her parents what happened. "What a coincidence!" the girl's mother remarked, "I don't think we can stay in there though, so come back to us sometimes!" They all then boarded the boat, Paiyu and Eli separating to go to the first class section, a blue-and-white, almost Aether-themed area. The green girl sank herself into one of the fluffy chairs, commenting on how exhilarated she was that acquaintance after acquaintance she met still respected her for who she was. "You see? Alola isn't as bad as you think... you just have to find the right people!" Paiyu told her.

Now that Eli had successfully woke her friend up, it was time for her to get ready as well. Since she decided to keep her oversized lab coat on, she only attempted to straighten out her messy yet fluffy hair, doing the best she can to make it appear less frizzy. After a couple spritzes of vanilla spray later, she followed Paiyu (who was carrying Eli's bag plus her own) and her parents out of the hotel and to the boat terminal, doing the best she could to keep up with her hidden little green legs. As she was following them, a warm breeze was felt on the green girl's face. She couldn't believe that she was finally residing in her home region, yet she was a little worried if people would give her weird looks.

They arrived at the boat terminal as Eli smelled the familiar scent of salty sea water. The boat they were going on didn't seem like much: just a motor boat that could hold a couple passengers, but to Eli, it was rather huge. The last time she remembered going on a boat was when she had a cruise transfer over to the Aether Paradise back when she was human. She sat next to her friend on one of the waiting seats, preparing her rPhone to look at some memes. But before she could get the Rotom device turned on, a familiar Aether girl, whom she couldn't remember the name of, caught her eye. She was the head of the motorboat, sporting a newer Aether employee suit and the same old Aether hat. Not only that, she had long, purple hair that was bundled up in a ponytail. From what Eli could remember about this lady, she was a ditsy acquaintance of hers that she hung around and chatted with whenever they had no work to do. There were three other unknown ladies with different colored hair she recalled hanging out with during her human years, but they were nowhere to be seen; probably back at the Aether Foundation. Fear struck the green girl when they accidentally locked eyes with each other, quickly cowering her face into her oversized lab coat sleeve-covered arms and hands. She made sure none of her green skin peeked out for the purple haired girl to see. When her friend asked what was the matter, Eli squeaked with a shaky tone in her voice, "That's an Aether Employee I've known two years back as an acquaintance! I'm not really good with names and I can't remember who she was, but even with all that advice you said, I just don't know what she's going to think when she sees me like this!" "See you like what, Eli?" The purple-haired Aether lady seemed like she teleported from how quickly she walked up to the green girl and the young trainer. The surprise nearly made Eli jump and fabricated the fastest improvised excuse she could think of, "Uh, well, I don't want you to see me as a horribly terrifying monster that strikes fear into the hearts of many! Nya ha ha..." The purple-ponytail-ed girl was confused. She'd heard of many false rumors regarding her once tall human friend, but she didn't believe them because she thought Eli had simply quit. "Come on, Eli!" She smiled. "Your appearance can't be that terrifying! Come into the light!"

With a cleverly integrated quote from Beauty and the Pokemon, Eli giggled a little at it's usage and gave her the confidence to man up and show her Peridot form to her acquaintance of a friend. The Aether lady seemed shocked at first, seeing her tall friend now green-skinned and small, but much to the green girl's surprise, the purple-haired girl smiled and squee-ed from how cute she now was. "Oh my gosh!" The Aether girl baby-talked while picking her green friend up in the air by her shoulders. "You are sooo small and adorable now that I could die! How did you even get this way in the first place? Please teach me your secrets!" After getting swiftly force-hugged and placed down onto the waiting seat she sat on, she blushed with great embarrassment and squeaked, "Well, if you want the short answer, I was in a lab accident and got turned into this Peridot monster thing. I would have still been tall, but some type of Apotoxin shrunk me down to this pathetic size. How are you not scared of me? I look like a monster according to the entirety of Alola!" After aww-ing at Eli's mini explanation, the purple-haired girl shrugged and replied, "Meh, I dunno. I've seen worse from so many horror movies, and crap like that doesn't even faze me. Plus, that spiel was over two years ago, and people have gotten over it due to finding out that you're still you and that you saved the Alima region from a mind-wiping epidemic before it even started." The green girl was confused. How did people find out about her and Melvin's fight over in Alima? Was that actually big enough to be on the news or did someone from that region find out and spread the word over to the misguided people of Alola? Whatever it was, this made Eli's feral scaredness dissipate as she calmly replied with a smile, "...Oh. I guess I was worried for no reason, then! Who would'a thunk it?"

The trio laughed hysterically from Eli's long-lasting misunderstanding and the purple-haired Aether lady asked if the green girl and her friend would be cool if they were placed in the first class part of the motorboat, since Eli was a former employee of the Aether Foundation and she was the only member boarding the ride. "Of course!" The little green professor laughed. "Why the heck not?" Eventually, the Aether lady started up the boat and Eli and Paiyu were the first to board, since they earned their first class ranking. The first class part of the boat had prestigous blue fluffy chairs with white Aether walls and a curved center window surrounding the area, almost like they were inside a futuristic aquarium. It even had floors that were built to sustain the motorboat's constant sea-bobbing, almost like these were floors built for a cruise ship! Before the purple-haired girl went off to her own captain's quarters to drive the boat, she let the duo know that they are free to move around the boat in and out of first class as they please. With a nod from both the girls, the driver went off to do her thing. "Ah," she squeaked, relaxing onto the blue fluffy seat and laying herself down like she was in bed. "I never knew that the Aether Foundation and others still respected me for all these years, but man! This is the life!"

As the last of the real world was fading into darkness and silence around her, Paiyu heard a faint purring noise emanating from beside her. She had heard that sound before, but never really understood what it was; either it was Eli or Mimikyu that was making the noise. Either way, it was quite soothing to fall asleep to.

The trainer woke up in an unfamiliar place: it seemed to be underground, judging by the pipes running across the ceiling, illuminated by dim lights that tended to flicker. Paiyu quickly hid behind a nearby statue when a door at the other end of the room opened, an in came a group of people wearing dark uniforms - dark uniforms that bore a red R emblem on the front. They stood to attention as a blue-haired man entered from a door on the other side. One of the grunts was about to say something, but the other man cut her off. "You... you fools. Why did you burn the place down?!" his calm composure quickly deteriorated as he began to yell at them. "Do you think you even belong in Team Rocket?! Do you know what we do?" The grunts looked at each other nervously; one even muttered under his breath "Arceus. He must be really mad..."
"Steal for profit. Exploit for profit. Do you think you've achieved that?! Look at you, all empty handed: No items! No Pokemon!" the admin kept on ranting. The other grunts were already cowering, except for one.
"No Pokemon, you say? Well take a look at this then." he fished out a Pokeball from his pocket. "A kid dropped it while running away. Perfect!" he handed it to the admin, who eyed it carefully. "Come with me now then." he told the grunt without saying a word to the others as they exited the room. When the other grunts had left too, Paiyu peeked out from her hiding place and began to follow the admin and solitary grunt.

Paiyu followed the duo down several flights of stairs into a spacious, dark room. The admin switched a light on, revealing a cage in the center of the room surrounded by grunts holding Pokeballs and electrically charged sticks. The trainer's heart skipped a beat when the grunt pressed the button on his Pokeball, releasing a beam of red light into the cage... which materialized into a Quilava. "La-vaaa..." it cried as it tried to comprehend what was happening, and who all those unfamiliar humans were. Arashi, Paiyu's mind told her. "This one seems strong... let's see if that is!" a female grunt with an electric stick commented before extending it between the bars to jab the Pokemon. He screamed as the electricity ran through his body, but glared at his attacker when she retracted the stick. "Oh no! It's angry!" a male grunt pretended to cower. "...Not." he released his own Pokemon, an Ekans, into the cage. "Acid!" he commanded, and the Poison-type spat a stream of black liquid at the Quilava, leaving a nasty wound where the fur had been corroded away. "QUILAAA!" Arashi yelped, but retaliated with a Flame Charge, slamming the Snake Pokemon against the bars. "It really is angry..." the grunt muttered as he recalled his fainted Ekans. "But that just means it's powerful, isn't it?" the others nodded in agreement as he sent another Pokemon, this time a Golbat, to battle the Fire-type. As the Poison-Flying type swooped down to bite, the Quilava took the hit as it scurried to the far corner of the cage. "Giving up, aren't you?" another grunt laughed. But Paiyu knew that Arashi would never back down from a fight - instead, he was employing a signature strategy. Without warning, the Volcano Pokemon flared up the flames on its back, engulfing the entire inside of the cage with fire, even melting some of the bars, as several grunts ran away for cover, cursing. The Golbat, hanging onto a last sliver of HP, attempted to flutter out, and was recalled before Arashi's Swift attack could hit it. "Still not submitting?!" the first grunt with the electric stick exclaimed, and poked the Quilava's wound, not realizing her grave mistake...

A blast of blinding light emanated from the Fire-type as he screamed. Transfixed, the grunts, along with Paiyu, watched the Quilava's shape change to a much larger one. A terrible roar echoed through the chamber as the light dissipated, and the Pokemon in the cage, now a Typhlosion, roared again before creating a massive blast of fire that was the last thing the girl saw before everything faded to white.

"Wake up, Paiyu! Wake up!" Eli repeatedly called as Paiyu's eyes blinked open. The trainer was surprised that the green girl's attitude had reverted to a hyping one, and wondered why... Of course! We're going home for real! she quickly got up to go into the bathroom to change, and came out to pack up the last of her things. The girls then followed Paiyu's parents out of the room, down the stairs, to the lobby, and out towards the boat terminal.

After her friend had finally gotten on top of the bed with her, Eli immediately cuddled herself within the blanket near the young trainer, bid her goodnight, and slept, making purring noises as she got into a deep REM sleep. But before she could get any dreams, however, Eli heard her own strange purring (but not snoring) noises, and almost thought it was her Mimikyu making them. "Mimikyu!" She whispered. "Were you making those purring noises?" The Disguise Pokemon shrugged by slowly bouncing it's costume, but also booped it's trainer's tiny green nose using it's shadowy hand. "So does that mean I was the one making those weird purring noises when in a deep sleep?" She quietly questioned. Her partner Pokemon nodded it's costume's head, which made Eli hide her face in the other pillow from frustration. "Why do I even act animalistic sometimes?" She mumbled to herself beneath the pillow. "I'm no beast. I'm still human, you stupid tiny green body! A human!" But the purring still continued to come out from her when in deep sleep, so she took her head out of the pillow and snuggled herself next to Paiyu, silently squeaking, "Nya, Forget it." to herself before giving in to the purring sound from her tiny body.

"Help!" A familiar call rang in Eli's ears, almost sounding like her old Aether boss, Lusamine. "Save me! The Nihlego are making me feel monstrous!" She was in that foggy location from the slow transformation dream, but was still in her Peridot form. She glanced up at the now-taller-than-her Lusamine, squeaking out, "I'll save you, my friend!" before the green girl's boss got snatched by the Nihlego. The small green professor ran after her boss with all her might, but the Nihlego kept carrying her father and farther away to the point where her little legs couldn't keep up the pace and tripped her over from exhaustion. But Eli didn't want to give up. She cried out "Lusamine!" with her high pitched voice while her boss kept repeating her cry of "Help!" over and over. Unfortunately, the more Eli got closer to her goal, the Nihlego kept moving farther away, and what's worse, the long distance made her feel so small that she was shrunken down to chibi size (around 3'5"), which made her already huge lab coat even bigger than needed. "Noooooo!" She squeaked with all her might, eventually collapsing on the ground and began to cry.

"Lusamine!" She silently squeaked with a tear in her right eye as she woke up, but thankfully didn't wake up her friend. A vibration came from her rPhone, which turned out to be a call from the Aether Foundation. That's weird, she thought to herself. Why the heck would the Aether Foundation need me back if they just denied me? This doesn't make any sense! Since her voice was small enough to not wake Paiyu up, she decided to take the call, despite being groggy. (Note, the squeaking is only heard by Luis since his phone can't pick up her high pitched squeaks as English)

Eli: "*Squeak*lo...? (Hello...?)"
Luis: "Eli! Oh thank goodness, you're still human and can pick up the phone. We could really use your help right now since you're the only non-mind controlled person I know of who worked for the Aether Foundation!"
Eli: "*Squeak!? Squeak!! Squeak Squeak!?* (Luis!? What's going on? How come you're not evil and such!?)"
Luis: "Aw, crap! The potion made you sound less human and more squeaky! This isn't good..."
Eli: "Nya... *Squeak, Squeak! Squeak Squeakk!? Squeak Squeeak, Squeakkk!?* (Nya... Darn it, Luis! Why can't you fluffing hear me!? My friends are able to hear me just fine, so what gives!?)"
Luis: "Eli, chill. I can't understand you now that you're, uh, whatever you transformed into, but I can explain what the sitch is for you if that's okay."
Eli: "*Squeak...* (Great.)"
Luis: "So, Lusamine got captured by two Nihlego into their own part of Ultra Space, and the mind-controlled members are stuck in a trance saying "All hail Melvin" while doing absolutely nothing! I think the way to break their spell is if we end up saving Lusamine from those Nihlego, and then the Aether Foundation can return to normal again!"
Eli: "*Squeak squeak...?* (What's in it for me...?)"
Luis: "You sound disinterested. Maybe I- Oh wait! You want your job, back don't you?"
Eli: "*Squeak squeak squeak! Squeak!!* (Yes yes yes! Finally!!)"
Luis: "Well, you can try to convince Lusamine to give your job back, and if that doesn't work, I'll snap her back to her senses. Sounds good?"
Eli: "*Squeak squeak! Squ-eak!* (Oh, you bet it does! Count me in!)"
Luis: "Okay then! See ya in a couple days, Eli!"
Eli: "*Squeak!* (Bye!)"

A giant rush of dopamine filled Eli's tiny body as she found out she was able to have a second chance at the Aether foundation. Although Luis couldn't understand her, maybe she could make an invention that would allow anyone to hear her true, normal voice over all the squeaking. Since it was now 4am, the green girl flopped on her bed near Paiyu and purred again while she slept. She did not have any more dreams that night.

Eli woke up from the Alolan sun, feeling a little groggy yet hopeful now that her parents loved her for who she was. She found that it was 9am and knew this was the time to leave the hotel, so she excitedly squeaked to her friend, "Paiyu! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! It's time to go back to our real home! Nya ha!"

Still wondering whether it really was time to go back to the hotel, Paiyu realized that she had brought their conversation to a standstill when Eli asked her what was wrong. "Oh no, no, it's nothing... I'm just thinking that we should probably go back to my parents." the trainer answered. The gem girl understood immediately, and proceeded to pack her clothes, plushies, and even computer into a bag that she had found. "Why... are you taking these things?" her friend asked, "Aren't you gonna stay here?" The green girl explained that she was moving out of this house - and moving in with Paiyu! She then began to haul, or rather struggle to haul, the bag out of the room. "You need help with that?" Paiyu asked, but her friend insisted that she didn't... before collapsing at the stairs and finally admitting that she did. "OK then..." the girl then began to drag the bag down the stairs with all her might, but also carefully, one step at a time, so to not damage the items inside. Eli followed her, complaining about her weakness compared to her tall self. "I swear it's not just you. I think it's quite heavy too!" the trainer responded.

After they had gotten the bag down the stairs, it was time to bid farewell to Eli's parents. Paiyu waved goodbye to them while Eli explained the moving situation, which, surprisingly, her parents approved of, but still allowed her to come visit and stay once in a while. The girls then walked out into the warm Alolan night, back to the hotel. When they finally arrived, Eli cutely greeted the trainer's parents with a simple hi before collapsing onto the bed as Paiyu told them what had happened. "Well! We should meet up someday!" her dad responded. The trainer then went entered the bathroom to prepare for the night, emerging to climb into the bed next to her friend. "Good night, Eli..." she softly said to her friend before curling up under the blanket to drift off.

A long coversation between the two girls for around 30 minutes, and Eli felt like she was having the time of her life! But then, all of a sudden, something made her friend pause out of concern. Was it something the green girl said? Did she have another meeting with Mewtwo? Just as Eli shoved herself off the chair and walked up to Paiyu and ask why she's so deep in thought, she explained that she wanted to go back to the hotel, since her parents could be worried sick about her absence for so long. "Oh that's right!" The small green professor squeaked. "We still have to go back to the hotel! But before we go, I want to pack some essential things up from this room, first."

Eli scrambled around the room, looking for a tote bag to carry her belongings in, and then finally finding one that was perfect for her. While tossing a couple plushies in like Jibanyan, Whisper, and a tiny, cheap, bendable version of Azure Dragon, her friend was confused on why she was packing these things up. "Because, silly Paiyu," She giggled. "I've decided to move in with you... Forever! I doubt there would be any houses out there that are cheap enough for me to buy in Alola, so why not move in with a friend as wonderful as you are?" She then packed up her lightweight desktop computer with a built in PC, her rainbow keyboard, her Bluetooth mouse, all her old clothing, and a drawing pencil. Sweat started flooding out of her pores from carrying such a now-heavy bag to the point where it made a puddle on the floor. Even when her friend offered help, she replied with, "Nah, I'm good. Let's go." Eli slowly made her way to the stairs, with her legs shaking from all the weight and eventually collapsed in front of the stairs. "Okay," She wheezed with a sweat puddle below her. "You carry it! It became too much for my tiny body!" Slowly ascending herself back up, she signaled her friend to follow her as she groaned with embarrassment. "Why is it that it's so hard to carry such easy stuff like that while my taller self could lift that bag just fine!?" She mumbled. "I feel so weak and puny..."

Eventually, the girls made their way to Eli's parents, waving goodbye before Eli squeaked out to them, "I love you guys! Just letting you know I'm going to live at Paiyu's house forever in Malie City!" "We're cool with that!" Her dad shouted back. "We're just glad you're safe and sound! Also, you can stay here as much as you'd like if you ever need to come back and rest your head! Happy trails!" And off the girls went back to the hotel. Eli greeted Paiyu's parents with a gleeful squeak of "Hi!" before heading off to the temporary room and climbing onto the bed. She waited patiently for her friend to be ready as well with an adorable smile on her face, knowing that everything's going to be all right in the end.

Eli's parents were curious about the "trouble" that Paiyu had been through. The trainer had to explain everything that happened: the encounter in the woods, the Serperior attack, the trip to Almia, the fights with Melvin (whom for some reason she just referred to as a "poacher") and Khan, the Stuff Mart spree... When she finished recounting their experiences, Eli's father decided to crack a "dad joke", but apologized when he noticed that it had got his daughter triggered. Then, the green girl's parents agreed to allow Paiyu to tour their house, but not for too long, as her parents might be getting worried about her. "Sure! That would be great!" she answered as she followed the peridot girl into the house.

The first thing Paiyu noticed when she stepped into the living room was the fluffy purple couch, and the Umbreon with an unusually bushy tail curled up on it. Once it noticed the girls' presence, however, the Dark-type got up, fur bristling and exuding poisonous sweat. Eli demonstrated that the Pokémon could be made docile if one let it sniff their hand; when she did so, the Umbreon calmed down and let the green girl pet it. Paiyu did the same, and the eeveelution, recognizing that the stranger was not going to harm it, happily barked "Breee-on!" as the trainer gave it a scratch behind the ears. Eli then decided that they go upstairs to her room; before Paiyu could say "Yeah!" the gem girl was up the flight of stairs, unable to contain the excitement of returning to her room after so long.

They opened the door and were greeted with the sweet scent of vanilla. Paiyu marveled at all the drawings on the walls - there were even more here than in the secret lab - and the plushies arrayed in a neat row on the bed and scattered elsewhere that made Paiyu's collection seem like nothing. She was amazed at the rainbow glow keyboard as well and wondered what kind of video games Eli played to get a keyboard like this - or did she just buy it for the coolness factor? Meanwhile, Eli was rummaging through the lowest dresser drawer, finding some old clothes that - surprise - were a perfect fit for her, much to her frustration and embarrassment. Tossing her Azure Dragon plushie on the bed with its fellow Yokai, she talked about how she was so happy to be back home, to a family that didn't ridicule her. She even hoped that strangers on the streets would be like this too! Then, the green girl asked for Paiyu's thoughts on her room. "It's awesome! I think it's even cooler than my own room. Honestly, I've never seen so many plushies!" They laughed and talked for a while, but the trainer was beginning to have thoughts of going back to her family.

After Paiyu explained to Eli's parents that their daughter helped out with her troubles too, they tilted their heads, asking "What sort of troubles?" The young trainer explained everything to them, from the time Eli saved her friend from a Serperior attack to the epic battle with her rival yet also villain, Melvin, but Eli noticed her friend called Melvin a "poacher" instead of giving away his name. Strange. Eli thought to herself. I guess she's assuming that my parents don't know who Melvin is. Seems understandable enough. Once the long grandiose story was finished, her father glanced down at his daughter and smiled, saying "Well, albeit! It's nice to hear that you're doing good for your friends despite your 'little' predicament! Heh, See what I did there?" The green girl winced at the pun and growled, "Dad! Stop with the puns, especially when they're about my height!" With a bit of embarrassment, Eli's father scratched the back of his head. "Sorry, Eli." He apologized. "That was just one of my signature dad jokes. I couldn't help it! Either way, we're so proud of you!" The green girl felt so happy from all the praise given to her for helping out her best friend. "Thanks!" Eli squeaked in a gleeful tone. She pondered a bit for whether or not she wanted to give her young trainer friend a tour of her bedroom, but after a bit of consideration, she decided to ask, "Hey guys, can I let Paiyu come in for a tour of my room? I need to put my new Azure Dragon plushie I got from the Soras Region up in my room if you don't mind." Looking down at the little green scientist's waist, Eli's parents barely even noticed the big plushie of the blue dragon wrapped around her waist. "Aww, that's such an adorable Azure Dragon plushie you've got there!" Eli's mom smiled. "Of course you can let your friendo tour the place for a little while you put that stuffed Yokai up in your room! Make sure it's quick, though, because I bet Paiyu's parents are worried about your friend at such a dark hour." Before Eli could say thanks, her father added, "She's right! I've still got the newest sequel of Yokai Watch to code up, soon! It's called, "Yokai Watch: Shadowside." It's got a pretty neat concept if I do say so myself, and I ain't gonna spoil it's newest gimmick!" The green girl chuckled for a bit before thanking her parents and signaling her friend to come right into her home.

On the lowest floor, there was a kitchen and a living room, all combined into one part of the house. While the kitchen didn't look so special, it was the living room that looked pretty neat. There were drawings taped-up everywhere on the walls, with an extremely fluffy purple couch that lay on a pink carpet and a small curved TV that carried the DurantTV provider. On the couch sat her mom's Umbreon, which unlike the others, had an extremely messy and fluffy tail. He was sitting on the couch sweating poison, since was unfamiliar of Eli's smaller Peridot form and her friend. "Now, before we head on up to my room," The tiny green professor explained. "I'd like you to meet my mom's Umbreon! He kind of sweats poison to defend himself from unfamiliar guests, so you have to hold your hand out like this to make him stop for you." Eli unfurled her right oversized lab coat sleeve, revealing her tiny green hand that she held out to the Moonlight Pokemon. It sniffed at her hand, trying to familiarize itself with a strange, monstrous face of an unfamiliar form. It finally stopped sweating, yipping it's name happily before allowing the green girl to pet it. A few minutes later, it went up to sniff Paiyu's hand and became more familiar with the young trainer as well. "Anyways," Eli stretched for a bit. "It's time we go up to my room, shall we?"

Conveniently, there was a flight of stairs smack dab in the middle of where the two rooms sat, and Eli ran up them in a flash with her hidden, tiny legs. Extremely exhausted, Eli had finally reached her childhood room which smelled of a warm scent of vanilla. Unlike the vacation room over in Soras, her room was jam-packed with stuffed Yokai Watch plushies all around her room along with her old drawings plastered on the walls. A lab desk was placed to the right with a window in front of it, but instead of filling it with science stuff, it had toys and art supplies all over it, along with a computer and a light-up rainbow gaming keyboard to supply it. There were a couple of test tubes sitting on her desk, but she had barely used them according to all the dust that surrounded their glassy surfaces. Eli stumbled herself over to the now-extremely tall pink and white drawer, now finding that she couldn't reach the top of it. With a disappointed sign and a bit of sweat on her face, she decided to open the bottom drawer, which had her very old clothes in there from when she was 10 years old. In the drawer, there was a normal blue t-shirt, short jeans, long jeans, a normal pink t-shirt, a long-sleeved purple shirt, a green t-shirt with a Bulbasaur on it, a long-sleeved blue shirt, a night gown with a sleeping Squirtle on it, and a long-sleeved pink shirt. She picked out one of them and found out they fit perfectly for her new, tiny body, meaning she shrank to the size of a normal 10 year old. Great, she grumbled. I wonder I'm the exact same height as that famous Ash kid I keep seeing on the news... With an embarrassed groan, she threw her Azure Dragon plushie onto the bed and climbed herself onto her desk's fluffy black chair, letting the warmth envelop her tiny body and allowing herself to relax. "Ahh," she squeaked. "Welcome to my room, Paiyu! I can't believe I'm finally home and my parents actually love me for who I am instead of scolding me for becoming a tiny green monster! I bet even the people that discriminated me before wouldn't mind a little green person like me running around the streets anymore! Nya ha! So... What do you think of my room, Paiyu?"

((Happy birthday post to Eli!))
After their disembarkation and a relatively hassle-free luggage claim, Paiyu, her parents, and Eli were greeted with the scent of the sea breeze as they stepped out of the airport into the Alolan afternoon. On their short walk to the hotel, Eli complained that she was already grown up and should be allowed to visit her family alone instead of tagging along with Paiyu's family. The trainer really wished that her friend could go off on her own, but knew that her parents had plans that she had to obey. Her thoughts were interrupted when she noticed that her green friend was no longer by her side, but before she could call for her, Eli returned as quickly as she had disappeared, explaining that she simply couldn't leave Paiyu behind when she was acting as a "guardian mother pal".

When they finally entered the hotel, Paiyu and her parents began unpacking their essential items immediately. Eli, on the other hand, wistfully stared out of the window, searching for her family home. She then ran, crying, into the bathroom, locking the door behind her. "Eli! I-it's fine! We can go -" the trainer was interrupted as the door slammed open and the peridot girl, now dressed in her old lab coat, dashed out. Before she reached the door to the hall, the green girl turned to tell her friend, with a cracking yet determined voice, that she had to find her parents now. The trainer was speechless, not knowing what to do, as she watched Eli bolt away.
"Go follow her."
As her mom uttered those three simple words Paiyu was out of the room in a flash as well.

Paiyu sprinted down the stairs, across the lobby, and out into the streets, always keeping an eye on her green friend in front of her. The sun was setting as the trainer chased down the gem girl, finally stopping where she stopped. This is it... she's back home. The girl watched from beyond the fence as her friend stumbled up the steps to ring the doorbell before collapsing to weep. Before she could call out to comfort, however, a man opened the door, and before he knew it Eli grabbed his legs and pleaded his forgiveness between sobs. But the man was not at all angry over his daughter's shrinking; instead, his reaction resonated with what Eli had heard in her dream last night. The little green scientist jumped up with all her might to hug her father hard when a woman appeared in the doorway too, and joined the group hug after her husband explained what was going on. As Eli playfully told her mom to stop ruffling her already floofy hair, she suddenly froze and fell from her parents' embrace. Ah. She's spotted me. But instead of scolding her for interrupting their heartwarming moment, the green girl, eyes bright with her newfound happiness, introduced Paiyu to her family as the person who, along with her Pokemon, had helped her through everything ever since her transformation. "Well, Eli's one of the nicest people I've ever met too. She's helped overcome a lot of trouble as well." Paiyu responded after her friend finished explaining.

Even after Eli's demanding speech on going back to reunite with her parents, Paiyu suggested that they'd talk about it later since they were going to stay at a hotel in Hau'oli City. Gosh dangit, Paiyu! She thought to herself, feeling quite aggravated. I thought you were better than this! Desperate hours call for desperate measures, and I want to head there now this instant! With a great big thud, the plane had finally landed on the ground, making the descent pain in Eli's head much stronger since she wasn't chewing any gum to prevent it from happening. Once the plane stopped, everybody got off including Paiyu's parents, who signaled their daughter and the green girl to follow. Eli shoved herself off the seat, stumbling in her tiny body while feeling the phantom jello-like pain in her legs. She tried her best to keep up with Paiyu, breathing out little exhausted squeaks with every step she took.

Fifteen minutes later, they had finally gotten out of the airport to be greeted with the familiar scent of sea salt. People and Pokemon were walking on the boardwalk-like streets, visiting places and ordering foods such as funnel cakes for themselves to eat. In a way, Eli was finally home... But Paiyu signaled her friend to follow her into the hotel. "Come on, Paiyu!" She grumbled. "You know I fluffing live here. Why can't I just do what I wanna do for once? I'm an adult!" But something about being smaller had scared her away from doing what she wanted. Now that everything was bigger than her, she couldn't do that much on her own, and as a result, was forced to revert to a childlike state of dependency. She tried stepping away in the direction of her parent's house, but the sudden guilt of leaving her friend behind overwhelmed her and made her run back to her friend. "I can't leave you behind," Eli muttered. "I'm your guardian mother pal. *sigh* It would be like leaving a child behind while running off to get donuts... It just doesn't work that way."

After getting settled into the hotel, Eli peeked out of the temporary bedroom's window on her tippy toes to notice her parent's house in the distance. She thought of what her father said in the dream which was repeated back to her in an echo-y voice. "I don't care if you're the tallest wolf tree or the smallest plant, because I love you for who really are." Because of this, Eli shed a tear from her right eye, knowing that she couldn't wait any longer to see her parents again. The small green professor bolted into the bathroom, stumbling a little, to switch her casual attire to her oversized lab coat just to prove that she was still Eli in this unfamiliar form of hers. Before running off, Eli turned to her friend with a determined tearful glare in her eye, responding to the young trainer's plea with, "I... I can't hold my patience in anymore. I have to be an adult for once and go see my parents. They're probably worried sick about me at this point, and I have to do what's right!" She turned around to open the hotel room's door and sprinted away as fast as she could, never turning back. The green girl quickly stumbled her tiny body down the steps, out of the hotel, and onto the carless streets with a myriad of tears flowing from her eyes. Indeed, it was almost like that one time she almost lost her humanity, but this time, it felt like she was gaining some back for being an adult.

A few minutes later, Eli had finally reached her destination. The home she knew and loved was finally in front of her, feeling teary eyed as she stumbled herself to the door and collapsed into tears. Not from sadness, but also joy as well. She used what was left of her strength to knock on the door, hoping that at least one of her parents would hear her. A tall man with a brown mullet opened the door, sporting a blue shirt and green shorts (this was normal in Alola). He looked around, finding no-one in his field of view until he glanced down, finding his long lost daughter collapsed on the ground with tears in her eyes, except she was much smaller and green from what he could recall. "Eli...?" He questioned. "Is that... You!?" The green girl hugged her father's legs, squeaking sadly yet loudly, "Dad! I-i-it is me! I'm sorry you had to see me like this! It was because of a stupid lab accident I never intended to cause that shrunk me down and turned me into this monster! I-I'm so sorry for dishonoring the Wolftree name! I can't even reach a gosh dang shelf anymore without asking for help! I've become so... So... Pathetic!" Eli sobbed as hard as she could, knowing her father could either punish her or prove the Astral Projection dream to be true. "Aww, sweetie... Don't cry! You've never dishonored anybody! Look, that was just a joke saying to protect you from your abusive grandfather that's on my end. Your mother and I have always loved you for who you are on the inside, and we don't care if you're the tallest wolf tree or the smallest plant in the universe, for we love you regardless on what you've become." From such a heartwarming sentence, Eli wiped her tears away and gave off a cute, hopeful squeaking noise. "You..." She asked with her adorable high-pitched voice. "You really mean it...?" With a sincere nod from her father, Eli practically lept off her tiny feet that were hidden under her oversized lab coat and gave her father the biggest hug she could ever pull off. In a way, it pretty much cured her shrinking depression for good. After thanking her father, Eli's mom rushed in to ask what was going on as her dad explained everything to his confused wife. "Eli!" Her mom exclaimed with joyful tears in her eyes. "Oh my goodness! I'm so glad you're okay! Welcome home, my baby!" "Mom!" The green girl blushed, feeling her mom's hand rubbing the top of her already-messy hair. "Stop! You don't have to cry and smother my hair like I'm some sort of pet!" Once all had resided, Eli noticed Paiyu who was standing at the door this entire time. She dropped down from her father's arms and stuck the landing, turning to her friend and glancing up at her with sparkling, adorable eyes. "This is my friend, Paiyu!" She squeaked. "She's the one who helped me thick and thin while I was getting used to this new, tiny body. Heck, not only did she help me out the most, but her Pokemon deserve a reward, too, for being the kindest souls in the entire universe."

Even though Eli had said something earlier about her parents criticizing her over her height, she also mentioned that they were most loving and encouraging in all other aspects. Now Paiyu was quite confused: did Eli's parents really care about things like height, and let that influence their relationship with their daughter? Or did they love her all along, no matter what? The green girl bade her friend goodnight, saying that sleeping on this ambiguity may resolve it. But Paiyu was not tired; in fact, she hadn’t even begun watching her movie. Making sure Eli was asleep, the trainer put on her earphones and started the movie about a Lycanroc and its canine Pokémon companions. Even though it was quite emotionally intense, there were also some very funny parts - the trainer was trying hard not to laugh and wake her sleeping friend. As the credits began rolling, Paiyu curled up in her blanket and gradually drifted off.

Once again, the girl woke up in the Lavender Town dreamscape. Could her additional knowledge of the dream free her from it once and for all? She was no longer afraid ever since she found out that the "monster" that lurked in the tower was really a dream incarnation of her beloved Quilava-turned-Typhlosion. Paiyu took a deep breath, calmly walked into the tower entrance, into the darkness, and shined her Dexphone light toward where she thought the Pokémon would be. The familiar red eyes appeared at the end of the beam as a low growling filled the room. "Arashi... it’s you!" Paiyu exclaimed as she half-walked-half-ran to the stairwell to hug the Typhlosion. As she embraced him, burying her face into his fur, she felt the Volcano Pokémon’s forelimbs wrap around her too as he made an odd sound, something like sobbing and laughing combined. A blinding light erupted around the reunited pair as they both went silent. As the brightness faded, Paiyu found herself in a new location - was this another memory? Shouts filled the trainer’s ears, and she turned to see a trio - a man, a woman, and a little girl - fleeing a burning house. A round object fell out of the girl’s pocket; she screamed to turn back and retrieve it, but her parents forced her to move onward, tears glistening in the firelight as they ran away into the night.

Long after the family had fled the scene, and the fire had died, a man wearing a dark uniform chanced upon the fallen object. He pocketed it before joining other uniform clad men and women in disappearing into the dark forest behind the charred remnants of the house.

Back in the real world, Paiyu woke up to the light shining through the plane window. Outside, she could already see the Alolan islands; they would land any time now. In the seat beside hers, Eli stirred beneath her Azure Dragon plush, finally looking up at her friend. The peridot girl insisted that they must go visit her family home, which was conveniently located in Hau'Oli City, their destination, as soon as possible, after a dream revelation brought to her about her parents and what they thought of her. "We might be able to do that... my parents said that we will stay in a hotel in Hau'Oli tonight, and we’ll go back to Malie tomorrow. But do you think -" Paiyu was interrupted by the landing impact, "that dream showed the truth? And if so, where is your bad grandfather now?... I think we should talk about it later." The plane had already come to a stop, and everyone around the girls was already getting up from their seats and out of the plane’s exit with their luggage. Paiyu saw her parents signal her to follow them too, and got up, insisting Eli to do the same.

While Eli was tearing up, her friend was actually quite shocked to find that the green girl's own family would kick her out of the house looking the way she did. Paiyu then explained that real love is about looking past the odd traits to find a true friend hidden deep within. Unfortunately, even though this speech made her feel a lot better, the reminder of all her flaws like her smallness, the green skin, her squeaky voice, and sulfuric skin glands, hit her hard in the heart and built up the hidden depression within her. Despite this, she wiped away her tears and thought about the good side of the sentence, where, even though it'll take time for people to see the good in her, it'll still be worth it in the end. "Thanks, Paiyu." she sniffled, snuggling next to her Azure Dragon plushie. "You always know what to say at the right moments." Even though her parents gave her an awful mindset on appearance, she thought about the good memories that her parents had brought her, looking at the blurred flower in her field of vision. She remembered all the fun they had in Hau'oli City; walking around on the beach to visiting the big mall that stood on the streets so proudly. From what Eli could recall, there were no memories of her ever being abused or cruelly punished. Her family actually talked to her like an equal, so why on earth did they bring such a poisoned mindset onto her about her own height? "But really," she explained with her high pitched voice. "I just don't understand why they'd tell me that in the first place. From what I can recall, they seemed to treat me as an equal... Always encouraging me to follow my dreams and avoiding cruel and unusual punishments whenever possible when I got into trouble. I mean, they've always loved me no matter what I do, so why would they say something that only the most malevolent of parents would pull off onto their child!? *sigh* I'm gonna rest it off and see what happens. Maybe I'll get a sign from Mewtwo, who knows. See ya when I wake up, Paiyu..." Holding onto her Azure Dragon plushie, she closed her eyes and let the warmth of the stuffed toy envelop her tiny body, causing her to fall asleep and purr once more.

Eli woke up in a familiar place. The scent of sea salt filled her nostrils while feeling the silky sand and cold waves beneath her tiny, green toes. Could it be that the plane tossed her out and threw her onto the beaches of Hau'oli City? But why? The green girl thought to herself. I thought the plane was heading to Hau'oli City! Not past it! She weakly got herself up, dusting the sand off her new clothing, and attempted to run towards the city street where the mall resided. While sprinting, she could feel the sand sinking her in more than it did as her taller, human self. A couple minutes later, Eli found herself on an empty road, with not a single person or Pokemon to be spotted. "I guess they all ran inside due to my monstrous appearance." She sighed. However, this was not the case, for she didn't realize that the Hau'oli City she knew was merely a dream-scape. She continued to push on towards where her parent's house was, collapsing in front of the door due to exhaustion. While trying to get her small body up, she tried knocking on the door... But nothing happened. Clearly, she could hear the TV blaring with her parents laughing, so why couldn't they hear her knock? Was she really that small to the point where even her door banging proved to be fruitless? But she didn't want to give up. If this was the only way for her parents to look past her appearance, then so be it. After knocking nonstop for around a minute or two, she suddenly fazed through the door, like she was some kind of ghost. "Wait a second!" She squeaked to herself. "I can't be dead! Gems can't die, or... Hey, wait a minute. This is a dream, isn't it? But... It feels too real to be a dream! Could this be some form of Astral Projection? Whatever. I'm thinking about it too hard." She walked right over to the living room, where her parents and her mom's Umbreon with an oddly fluffy tail were watching and riffing the Alolan News Network, particularly the older reruns of it. On the TV screen, it seemed to show a poorly shot picture of Eli's Peridot form in the woods with her oversized lab coat on, with the headline, "Tiny Green Freak Appears in Bamboo Forest! Handsome Aether Employee Suggests It's Neither Man nor Pokemon!" Cringing in disgust at the headline, she turned to her parents, in which they brought forth an interesting conversation she'd never thought they'd discuss...

Eli's Dad: "Hey, wait a minute... That lab coat looks familiar!"
Eli's Mom: "Is that Eli... In the woods? And she looks a little different!"
Eli's Dad: "Yeah, all signs are pointing to 'You bet your Whisper it is!'"
Eli's Mom: "Aww, my poor sweetie-kins! She's so small now!"
Eli's Dad: "...And just how I wanted her to be. She's adorable!"
Eli's Mom: "Wait, I thought you told her she had to be tall or else risk getting kicked out!"
Eli's Dad: "Naw, you know me, Sally! That was just a joke to push herself further and be a good kid!"
Eli's Mom: "But... You sounded so serious when you made it back then..."
Eli's Dad: "I know. My father pushed that belief onto me when I was her age. Honestly, I never wanted to be tall. Being small sounds a lot cooler when you're so close to the ground, and you get to see things that people my height could only dream of without crouching down. I only said those things to her just to protect her, so that my father would leave me alone at family reunions for once and not shun our daughter for whatever stature she ends up becoming. *sigh* I'm just glad that semi-false professor of a father hasn't come to this place yet. I never liked the guy for pushing the Wolftree philosophy on me; 'Wolftrees are tall and are never like small trees, because Wolftrees eat small trees for breakfast!' Pfft, what a load of Bulffalant Crap. If our daughter ever comes back without giving into the beast side of whatever creature she transformed into, I'd just want to say to her... 'I don't care if you're the tallest wolf tree or the smallest plant in the universe, because I love you for who you are, and remember to never stop believing in yourself or your capabilities.'"
Eli's Mom: "Me too, Tetsuya... Me too. I'd do anything for my sweetie to come back, even if it means giving up my Umbreon for good."
Sally's Umbreon: "Brii..."

The conversation brought Eli into complete devastation, not because of the secret, but because she wanted to be back at home now that she knew her parents were trying to protect her from a harmful secret grandfather this entire time. "Mom! Dad!" She squeaked at the top of her lungs, trying to break the Astral Projection brought onto by Mewtwo just so she can become visible again. "Can you hear me!? I'm right here, I tell you two! Right here! Hello!? Please! Can you even see me in front of the TV!? I'm right here in your own fluffing-"

"...Home." A silent squeak from Eli murmured as a single tear flowed from her right eye. She had finally awakened from her nap on the plane while holding the Azure Dragon plushie in her tiny hands. It seemed like they had finally arrived at their destination, as she saw the plane descend onto the ground from out the window. She glanced up at her friend, still feeling a little depressed from her smallness, but with a determined look on her eye. "Paiyu," she coldly squeaked with motivation. "Since this plane is arriving at Hau'oli City, my hometown, we need to go to my parent's house, because Mewtwo astral projected me over there, and I found out they only gave me that mindset to protect me from an abusive grandfather who is also a professor, too, and never came to my house. We have to go there. Now!"

How could my mental Pokedex suddenly stop functioning like this? It's like something's blocking me from the knowledge...
Paiyu's mind snapped back to the real world with the sound of Eli's voice. Apparently, the green girl had theorized that the mysterious creature in her friend's dream was a Typhlosion. "Heck! Of course!" the trainer almost face-palmed at herself for forgetting about this iconic Pokemon. The green girl went on to explain that it was not just any old Typhlosion either: it was none other than her beloved Arashi, even though he had never gotten the chance to evolve before they separated. But it all made sense now; that triumphant roar, that pounce - not at all from rage, but rather of being overjoyed at seeing his long-lost trainer again, but not knowing his own power. It must have been why petting him triggered that memory of the day Paiyu began her journey, the day she met her lifelong Pokemon partner-to-be... because it was him all along. Perhaps this dream was a sign that Arashi was not only alive and well, but getting closer in his search for his beloved trainer too.

But like before, Eli also made a point on how Paiyu's dream could apply to her own life too: how she was once well-loved like Arashi, but now feared for a new and unfamiliar form even though her personality had not changed one bit. However, with time and knowledge, some of those who were once scared would show kindness toward her, just like how Paiyu had chosen to pet what she once thought was a monster plaguing her dreams. But not all would follow this path... the trainer was shocked when her gem friend said that the people who would humiliate her the most for her height was her own family. "T-that's horrible... no good family should put their child down just because of their appearance. That's not what love is." Paiyu comforted her green friend, who had already burst into tears, "Love - and friendship too - is looking past the small stature. The green skin. The squeaky voice. The stench from touching water. All that matters is what's deep down, who you really are in terms of personality - I've told you this long ago, but it's extremely important advice for you. I promise that, someday, you will meet more people who will warm up to you, not as fast as I did, but they will nevertheless."

For a second, Eli was thinking of watching a movie on the plane's mini screen, but decided to play a game that didn't need wifi to work on her rPhone while she listened in on Paiyu's dream explanation. It was a game where you could combine Octilleries into strange, other forms of Octillery that went beyond the boundaries of mega evolution. From the looks of it, Eli was pretty far into the game, tapping on what seemed to be a god-like humanoid Octillery with a trident using her tiny green hand. While listening in, her friend described the dream creature as extremely tall (taller than the both of them, actually!), fluffy, and had a glowing mouth with flames on it's back. She even mentioned that it lead her to a childhood memory where she got a Cyndaquil, in which the green Pokemon Professor assumed it was named Arashi. Strangely enough, Paiyu seemed stumped on what the creature could be after finding out her Pokedex couldn't work without wifi, and why it made her look back at those fond memories. Something in Eli's mental Pokedex clicked in her head on what her friend's Marowak could be. The fluffiness, the flames on it's back, the memory involving a Cyndaquil of all sorts... This could only mean-

"Hey Paiyu," Eli squeaked in a fascinated yet cold tone, turning off her game while snuggling in her Azure Dragon plushie. "I think I just figured out who that Pokemon you've been encountering could be! Get this... The 'Marowak' in your dream... Is a Typlosion named Arashi!" Eli looked out the window with a smirk on her face and continued her thoughts. "Yup, the pieces just seemed to fit perfectly with what you're talking about. That Typlosion only seemed to be quite happy with you around instead of others. From earning it's trust, it probably showed you a past memory not of sadness, but happiness instead. It wanted you to know that you should look back on the fonder memories of him, because Mewtwo told you he might come back. He just might look a little unfamiliar to you; that's all." Eli looked down at her game again, combining more Octilleries together as she ranted on about the dream further.

"But just like the last interpretation of that Lavender Town dream, *sigh* this one also reminds me of my experiences being like this as well. People in Alola seem to either call me a freak or run away from this new, unfamiliar form of mine. But I think times have changed. People like you seem to let me into your life, despite looking at me funny at first, but then you learn to accept me for who I am. *sigh* I just hope people in Alola don't mind me for being this small, especially my parents." Thinking back to what her parents said, Eli remembered that if she were ever to be born smaller than the common folk, she would get dishonored by her own flesh and blood and get kicked out, which is why she ate loads of cheese when she was young. What would they think of her if they say their own daughter like this? Eli gave off a big, depressed sigh while tears endlessly flowed down her right eye, squeaking to her best friend, "I just don't want them seeing me in a shrunken down form like this, you know? Being small is such a disgrace to the Wolftree name! *Closes right tiny hand into a fist* It's not because I'm so shallow to believe that height is everything! It's this mindset given to me by my own freaking parents just so that I don't end up disappointing them or even society as a whole!" While being teary-eyed, yet not sobbing to not disturb the other passengers, Eli laid her head onto her friend's lap while holding onto the Azure Dragon plushie and turned-off rPhone in her tiny hands. "Even with that awful thought," She glanced up at the young trainer with tears in her eyes, squeaking, "At least I've got Pokemon pals and friends like you who still see me for who I am on the inside, right?"

As Paiyu, her parents, and Eli waited for the shuttle bus, the green girl turned to her friend, thanking the trainer and her Pokemon for helping her regain confidence, as that is what friends are meant to do for each other. "Aww, thanks... If I hadn't met you, I don't know what I could have made of..." the trainer paused, "my time here." They boarded the bus, and Eli moved quickly to a seat near the back, curling up there. Paiyu assumed that she wanted to sleep, so she didn't say anything to her, but chose a seat behind her green friend's so she could still be close to her.

When the bus finally arrived at the airport, Paiyu and her family got off to find a luggage cart while Eli simply stared in wonder at the airport building and all the people and Pokemon helping out in and around it. After an hour of waiting in a long line and several luggage checks later (Eli had some difficulty passing through the age one due to her small stature), they got to the flight gate for Air Lunaala to Hau'Oli City. They had to wait a while for the plane to arrive. When it was time to board, Paiyu was just about to ask her friend who was to have the window seat, but her friend had rushed forward in a blur of green, gold, and white to claim it. The trainer would be fine with the aisle seat, after all. As the plane took off and began to ascend, Eli squeaked out that she couldn't stand the extreme speed, saying that they should have flown to their destination on a Pokemon instead. "Well, first of all, I don't think even Lugia can fly a distance of -" Paiyu began, but her green friend had already passed out; trying to shake her awake had no effect. Still concerned about the gem girl, the trainer decided not to switch on a movie until her friend regained consciousness. When she finally did, eyes fluttering open before shifting slightly to use her Azure Dragon doll as a neck pillow, the girl breathed a sigh of relief and chose a movie to watch. She was just about to put on her earphones when Eli turned to ask her about her recent dreams...

"It was the Lavender Town one again... but this time things were different. I found out some more things about the creature: it's taller than I am, covered in fur, has red eyes, and a mouth that glows orange - I'm gonna assume it's Fire-type because of that. It also seems to respond in a strange way to the sound of my voice: it roars and pounces on me, but not out of aggression... and when I did the unimaginable, reaching out and petting it, last night, I was taken somewhere else, outside of the tower and possibly even Lavender Town itself. There was a kid there, running to greet her parents... my parents. Apparently she (should I say 'she' or 'me'?) just received her starter Pokemon, a Cyndaquil, and wanted ideas for names... guess which one we settled on..? Indeed, I was watching one of my childhood memories like a movie. Man, I think I remember that one now. It was in the Johtonian town I was born and raised in. How I was so happy back then... but why, why would that creature show me this memory?" the trainer paused at a sudden realization and quickly got her Dexphone out. "Dang it... there's no wifi here. I could have checked what that thing could be, if it were an actual Pokemon. A furry Fire-type, taller than me..." she searched her mind. Ninetales? Nope. Too small. Arcanine? Its eyes are black, not red. It shouldn't even make those kind of noises... Delphox? Much too frail to crush a person. Why can't I remember things now? Every other mammal-like Fire type should glow in the dark thanks to the flames on their bodies! "I don't know..." Paiyu finally gave up.

When her young trainer friend told Eli her new clothes were adorable, a smirk showed up on the green girl's face, feeling a little better from the compliment, but not by much. "Nya ha," she smiled calmly. "Thanks. I kinda thought they'd fit into my personality more, and the Mimikyu shirt is quite rare, since all they have in Alola are Pikachu variants of it." She then turned around to fix her fluffy hair while her friend got on her new clothing. I still can't believe we're actually going back to Alola today! She thought to herself. Yet again, I feel like I need something if we're going back on an airplane, but I can't remember what it was... The green girl pondered and pondered, until she realized that she needed her Professor Card, especially because people would assume she's a child by her small stature! To get a Professor Card, one must had to be 16 years old or older, reside in a region without a well-known Pokemon Professor, and have knowledge of all 800+ Pokemon in existence, excluding those from the Galar region. Eli stumbled herself over to the carrying case where she had her oversized lab coat in and reached into it's oversized pockets to grab her card and Lugia's Pokeball, just in case of a flight or sinking emergency. She placed those items in her pink short's average-sized pockets and patiently waited for her friend with the big, long Azure Dragon plushie in her tiny hands. Mimikyu, however, woke up excitedly and jumped onto Eli's shoulder, pretending to be an immobile stuffed animal as always.

Once Paiyu got herself out of the bathroom, she signaled the green girl to follow her downstairs. Eli stumbled herself a little down the steps and noticed they were having breakfast, with the scent of waffles filling the air. As much as Eli wanted to shove some fried pancake batter into her face, she was a gem now, and could only reply with, "No thanks. I'm a gem, now, and I don't have to eat anything to survive, but still, thanks for the offer." While they ate, Eli slowly walked herself over to the bean bag chair and flopped into it for the last time in history. While holding the Azure Dragon in her tiny hands, she gazed upon the waffle eating family, wanting to join them too, but she knew that if she decided to develop a digestive system, she'd have to eat constantly to keep her tiny stomach satisfied. The familiar scent still filled the air, and remembered back to when she ate cinnamon waffles with icing inside as a kid. They tasted so good, so light, so creamy, so fluffy... But now she couldn't. Not just because they were discontinued, but because she was not human anymore, and couldn't taste the fluffiness of any waffles, but merely smell it. A disappointed sigh came from Eli while a stream of tears rolled down her right eye.

After a last minute check for any lost items, the gang was finally ready to go back to Alola. Paiyu and her parents exited the house while Eli trailed behind them in sadness and because she's still not used to her shrunken self. She looked back at the house, waving goodbye at it like it was a real person, squeaking sadly, "I'm gonna miss you, Soras. You gave me some newfound confidence, and now it's time for me to test it." before heading forth to follow Paiyu's parents. The gang had finally arrived at the airport shuttle bus waiting center, and Eli sat on the corner of the bench, dangling her little green legs back and forth in boredom. "Hey Paiyu," she squeaked to her friend, feeling calm yet still depressed about yesterday's incident. "I just wanted to say... Thanks. If not for you or your Pokemon, I wouldn't even have the confidence to go back to Alola. It just goes to show that you really are a good friend to me, even when times are tough." A woosh of air flew into the green girl's face as it was time to head onto the bus. They gathered themselves and their packaging onto the mode of transportation, and Eli snuggled herself onto an empty chair, laying sideways with a depressed look on her face.

Around 10 minutes later, they have arrived at the flight terminal, and after getting out of the bus and into the rather large automatic door, the green girl looked around with a nostalgic look on her face, remembering the last time she went onto an airplane as a teenager to get to Unova, her mom's home region, for a vacation to Undella Town. There were several trained Pokemon helping out with luggage carrying such as Machamp, and even some flying ones like Skarmory helped out in assistance. "Woah," Eli squeaked with a shocked look on her face. "I've never been to one of these bad boys in forever ever since I was 15 years old!" Unfortunately, because she was tall at 15 years old, everything around the small, green professor was bigger than it needed to be. From the entry gates to even the bag transporters... Everything was either much bigger than her or only allowed her upper body to stick out from it. One hour of waiting in line later, it was time for the Alakazam Luggage Check, where highly trained Alakazam would detect any harmful objects inside luggage or in people's pockets, and would remove them with it's psychic abilities or grab the terrorists by using it's psychic to float them to security guards. The gang's luggage seemed to be all clear, including Eli's, who had a lab coat with a metal tag on it. The last check was an age one, where people would see if passengers were 18 years or older to be considered adults, or if they were lower, considered child passengers. As expected, Paiyu was obviously a child and her parents were adults, but confusion struck the guard when they came across Eli. "Oh, hi there, little one!" The guard exclaimed. A grumpy snarl came out of Eli while she held out her well-prepared Professor Card, "For the record, I'm not little nor a child! I can confirm that I am 18, but I've just kinda... Changed a bit." The guard then took Eli's card and looked at the old picture and then back at her. They seemed quite the same to him. with the green eyes and fluffy hair. There was no one he has seen with this type of green eyes except for this person, in which he could confirm they were one in the same. "Alright then, 'Professor,'" he sighed. "Your ID is scanned and we can confirm you're 18 years of age." An annoyed squeak came out of Eli with a quick "Thanks" before stumbling over to her young trainer friend with her little, green legs.

And so, it was finally time for the gang to wait for their airplane and take flight to the new and wondrous region. When they got themselves onto the plane after a long wait, Eli picked and climbed onto whatever seat allowed her to sit next her best friend. Thankfully, it was near the window, so the green girl got a clear view of the sky. She tried reaching her little legs toward the seats of the front passengers while buckling herself in, since that was her favorite thing to do, but failed to even touch the silky texture of them with her tiny bare green feet. Eli gave a sigh of sadness, missing her tall form even more because of it. When the plane finally took off, the green girl could feel the g-forces knock her back stronger than what her taller self had to endure, making her feel a little dizzy once they finally got the plane into the air. "You see," She groggily squeaked with swirls in her eyes. "This is why we should have used our own flying Pokemon to get back home instead of a plane!" before passing out for a couple seconds. A minute later, she woke up from the g-force pain and curled herself up near the Azure Dragon plushie she held in her tiny, green hands. She glanced at her friend, and asked with her adorable high pitched voice, "Hey Paiyu, I haven't really asked you about this, but... Did you get a different dream besides the one you've had tonight? If not, have you found any more clues on what the Marowak-like Pokemon creature could be?"

Complying with her mom's request, Paiyu bid goodnight to her parents and Petra before sprinting up the stairs with her Stuff Mart shopping bag. She picked out the clothes she was to wear tomorrow - the shirt with an Archen design that she bought at the Stuff Mart, and a pair of plain leggings - and placed the other ones into her suitcase. She also found her Flareon plushie and put it, along with her new Inkayling plushie, in as well. She would pack the toothbrush and other things tomorrow.

After getting ready for the night, the trainer exited the bathroom to find Eli already collapsed on the bed, cuddling her Azure Dragon doll. Her Mimikyu was resting on the bedside table. Turning off the light, Paiyu once again did not flop, but simply climbed into the bed, next to her friend. The green girl was still sad and didn't want to leave and go back to where she was ridiculed. "It will be fine. I will stick with you... remember what Mewtwo said." Paiyu reassured her. They wished each other sweet dreams, and waited to drift off.

Paiyu woke up in the familiar dream world of Lavender Town; her last encounter with the beast that dwelt inside the tower had shown that things could transpire differently if she did not back down. She tried to gather everything she knew to prevent it from attacking her: turning away would simply give it the opportunity to strike; should she just stare it down? It seemed to have reacted aggressively at the sound of her voice, but not as if it had an intense hatred of humans. No... she remembered its eyes widening, like in surprise... She strode into the tower with this newfound courage and knowledge, and once again switched her phone light on. Out of the dark appeared those red eyes, and now the girl could hear the creature's heavy breathing. They stared each other down, unmoving. "W-what are you?" the girl finally asked, wondering if it could speak. The beast only answered with a growl; a faint orange glow appeared beneath its eyes, illuminating sharp fangs, and then was blocked out. Its mouth... glows? I don't know if I should take a closer look... It might cough up an Ember for all I know. Both still stood where they were, still staring deep into each other's eyes. Finally, Paiyu plucked up the courage to step closer. But somehow, the beam from her phone light didn't illuminate things further: it was like there was a dark aura preventing the light from reaching whatever it enveloped. It was time to do the unthinkable...

Paiyu reached out and placed a hand on where she thought the creature's forehead would be, feeling rough fur.

Now she was outside, in the sun. She looked around: this wasn't Lavender Town anymore. This place was surrounded by forests, not cliffs, and there were only four buildings here. Hearing footsteps, she saw the door to one of the buildings open, and a young girl skipping out of it. "Mom! Dad! Look at my starter!" she cried out joyfully as she dashed towards two adults down the footpath, waving a Pokeball. They turned around, and Paiyu immediately recognized them... she watched the girl fumble with the Pokeball button, but finally release a beam of white light... a small Pokemon appeared on the ground, looking up at the unfamiliar humans with a cute squeak of "Quil!"
"What should I name him?"
"It's up to you, sweetie. He is very cute, by the way."
For a few minutes, the girl thought up a bunch of names - from "Fireball" to "Quilly," - but Paiyu knew that the Cyndaquil would not be called any of those at all. Eventually the girl's mother suggested something: "I know that you don't speak the Old Language very well, but the Old Language word for 'Cyndaquil' is a beautiful one: hi-no-arashi - 'storm of fire.' Perhaps you can base his name off of that." The girl perked up immediately. "Thank you, thank you, thank you! That is the coolest name, ever!" she bent down to look at the Cyndaquil. "Your new name, is..."

Paiyu woke up with a start, feeling something poking at her face. She turned to see Eli, but this time she did not look hyped at all; she was still down over her shrinking incident from yesterday, but still tried her best to encourage her friend. She also asked if Paiyu liked her new clothes: the trainer hadn't even noticed until now that her green friend wasn't wearing her labcoat anymore, but instead a blue shirt with a rainbow and a Mimikyu, and pink shorts that fit her perfectly. "Your new outfit is adorable!" the trainer answered. She was thinking of saying that it fitted Eli's personality too, but stopped as she realized its other implications. She got out of the bed to change and throw the last few items into her suitcase before closing the zipper around it. She grabbed her hat, backpack, and ball belt before opening the door of her room and pulling the suitcase down the stairs, signaling Eli to follow. Her parents were already down in the kitchen; Petra was nowhere to be seen, already safely stowed away in her Pokeball. They ate a quick breakfast before doing a last round of checking-if-everything-was-packed. There were no lost items. The house would be left as it was before they moved here, made ready for whoever may stay here next. Finally, they all exited to wait for the airport shuttle bus to pick them up.

While balling her eyes out, Eli heard her friend's mom trying to comfort her, saying they could try and make the antidote again for her. When asking what the pill was made of, the green girl replied with a saddened squeak, "It's made of Chinese ginseng root schnaps, but the problem is that the antidote only works longer as a pill, and it takes a lot of complex procedures to even make one, even with just one ingredient. *Sniffle* If I ate only the leaf of the herb, the effects would only last for a couple minutes before starting the whole cycle over again." Even with such a hopeless response, Paiyu's mom still suggested that she can get the herbs from a friend over at Konikoni City, which was all the way back in Alola. "Thanks, you guys." Eli sniffled. "You are so darn thoughtful of me, even though I look like this. I really appeciate it." Although the words were quite uplifting, the green girl still felt a bit of depression inside of her tiny body, knowing she'd have to walk all the way to whatever transportation mode that her friend's parents would end up using with such little legs.

Eventually, it was time for the two girls to head to bed. Unlike Paiyu who ran up in a flash, Eli struggled to even keep up with her and moved slowly up the stairs with her Azure Dragon and new clothing. While Paiyu was packing everything up, the green girl weakly climbed into the bed one last time, snuggling with her recently bought Azure Dragon plushie while Mimkyu gracefully hopped off it's trainer's shoulders without a care to lull itself to sleep. "I still can't believe we're going back to the region that made fun of me." Eli mumbled to her friend. "I just hope everything goes well in the end." Once her friend got into bed, the small, green professor sighed depressingly and snuggled near the young trainer. "Nya... Goodnight, Paiyu." She squeaked sadly before falling deep into sleep and purring. "I hope you are able to get a new, good dream tonight..."

It was another boring day at the dream Aether Foundation. Melvin, Luis, and Lusamine were together doing research on how they can use Pikachu's electricity to charge up batteries. "Ugh," an annoyed Melvin sighed. "I was hoping cell batteries would be charged instantaneously, but they just end up exploding! I really hoped I could use a Pikachu to charge my old cell phone." "Don't worry!" Dream Luis laughed. "Maybe we could try AAA batteries next!" Lusamine thought for a good bit on whether or not they should move onto another battery type, she humbly agreed and suggested to move onto more commonly used batteries instead. "Hey!" A tiny Eli squeaked, now wearing a newer uniform that was made for her remarkably tiny size. "Why not just use a lesser charge instead?" Unfortunately, since Eli was a size of a bug in this dream, the Aether trio couldn't hear her, except for Melvin who only heard her squeaks. "Huh? Who the heck is squeaking with a high pitched voice at me? Did you hear that, guys?" The two shrugged, responding that they couldn't hear the small voice. "Come on!" Eli squeaked at the top of her lungs. "Hello!? I'm down here! Can't you guys notice me for once?" But all they heard was squeaking. "You're right," Melvin shrugged. "It must be a hallucination. I didn't sleep well last night, so that must be the case." But then, a giant hand came rushing towards the green girl at lightning speed, killing her with a striking-

Eli woke up, wheezing in fear, but not enough to wake up Paiyu. "Thank the stars!" She mumbled to herself. "It was only a dream!" She tossed herself towards Paiyu and then back at the clock, finding that it's now 4am and Paiyu's still asleep. "Welp," Eli groaned silently to herself. "I'm just going to attempt to try and put on my new clothes for now. It wouldn't hurt." Eli rolled herself out of bed, being careful not to wake her friend up. She grabbed her new clothes off the carrying case filled counter and stumbled herself over to to the bathroom. Unfortunately, since she was still not used to her smaller form, she collapsed after getting halfway down the hallway and decided to lazily crawl herself over with silent tears running down her eyes. Once she got to the door, she struggled to get herself to stand, but opened the door anyways while in a crouching position. She then lazily crawled herself with one of her tiny hands over to the toilet and swapped her oversized lab coat with the new, smaller clothing she just bought. Now, Eli had a blue, Mimikyu T-shirt with a rainbow in the background and sported pink shorts similar to the ones she once wore as her tall self. She took her oversized lab coat and carried it over to place into a carrying case. "I'll probably get a belt for my Pokemon later." She grumbled to herself as she struggled to get herself onto the bed. While in bed, Eli glanced at her now-visible tiny green hands, making herself cry silently to sleep and purring once she got deep into it. Unlike most nights, she didn't get any extra dreams.

It was 8am, and Eli groggily got herself up from her rPhone's alarm. She was still depressed from yesterday's madness and the phantom jello leg pain never went away. The green girl weakly yet gently poked at her friend's face while holding her Azure Dragon plushie, since she was turned over to her side of the bed. "Hey Paiyu," She coldly squeaked. "Today's the big day to go back to Alola, I guess. *Sigh* I'm sorry if I'm not in my usual giddy mood when it comes to waking you up. I'm still not used to my shrunken down form as of now, and it's gonna take a while for me to cheer up. Come on. Up and at 'em. Also, do you like my new clothes?"

Just as Eli had recalled all of her Pokemon save for Mimikyu, Paiyu returned hers (except for Eedee'em, obviously) to their respective Pokeballs. The trainer then led the way home, moving slowly so her Noivern could catch up. The Sound Wave Pokemon's body swayed a lot as he crept along on his winged forelimbs - he was never built to move on the ground - but, thanks to Paiyu's advice, Eli did not fall off as she buried her face in his fluffy mane. Every step he took caused to Soothe Bell to emit its calming tone, preventing him from snapping. About halfway through the trip, Eli decided that she would finally try to walk by herself, and rolled off the Noivern's back into what little snow was left on the ground. "Well done, Ee." Paiyu gave the Flying-Dragon type an affectionate scratch behind the ears before returning him to his Dusk Ball. She then turned to Eli, who was struggling to get up. Before the trainer could ask to help, however, her friend got up and told her to keep going.

They finally reached home after a while. The holiday lights and the Xerneas decoration were nowhere to be seen, but a warm aura still emanated from the house. Paiyu stepped up to ring the doorbell; the door was promptly opened by her dad, who sensed something was wrong after his daughter didn't ask him to guess what fun thing they did today. Even though Eli had an adorable new plushie wrapped around her, she still seemed sad. "Are you alright, Eli?" he asked, and was met with a halfhearted response of "I guess..." the trio entered without any further talk.

"Ly-can-roooc!" Petra bounded out from a nearby room to greet them in the hallway, nuzzling Paiyu. But just like her trainer's father, the Rock-type soon became aware that all was not well with the gem girl, and rubbed against her affectionately, trying to cheer her up. Paiyu's mom was already in the living room, waiting for her daughter and her green friend to tell her what exciting experiences they had today... only to see them, along with her husband, enter like they had none. After dejectedly flopping into the bean bag chair, Eli began to tell what had happened: she finally found an antidote to her smallness, and after using it had the greatest time in the Stuff Mart, which was where she bought the Azure Dragon plush that was now wrapped around her. However, it had worn off once they reached the forest. The green girl broke off at this point and began to cry about how she could never relive this amazing experience again, as her instincts, coupled with her smallness, would prevent her from making another antidote.

"Don't cry, Eli! I'm sure one day you can get the antidote again." Paiyu's mom tried to console the peridot girl. "We might be make some for you. What is it made from?" After Eli told her, she responded "I think we can buy that in Alola. We've got a friend in Konikoni City who runs a herb shop, so you might have some luck there." she paused. "Anyways, girls, it's getting late now, and tomorrow is the big day. You should finish the last of your packing and get some rest."

Sad feelings had taken over Eli's mind as she buried her face into her Azure Dragon plushie. She couldn't believe the antidote wore off so quickly that she didn't even have the chance to go to Alola with her taller self. Even though she knew the pill was temporary, she didn't know that it would only last for a couple hours. Oh, what's the use? She grumbled to herself. Nothing's ever going to permanently cure my short statue for good. I'm gonna be stuck like this forever... Before she could continue her sobbing spree, a cry of one of Paiyu's familiar Pokemon rang in the green girl's hidden ears. It was Ee'deem the Noivern, the crazy bat Pokemon she nover thought her friend would send out. Is she nuts!? Eli thought to herself. I thought Noivern was too berserk for her to send out, even with all the Kaiba Berries that are fed to him! After getting the bat Pokemon all prepared, Paiyu bent down to explain that Ee'deem would be carrying the small green professor around, since her friend was not that strong to carry anybody, even someone as light as Eli. With a cold look and sweat rolling down her face from the lean-in's intimidation, she sighed out an annoyed "Okay." Boy, I never thought I'd get towered over after becoming small again. She mumbled to herself. After getting floated over onto Ee'deem by Caramella's Psychic, she weakly returned all her Pokemon into her Pokeballs except for Mimikyu, who proceeded to hop onto Eli's shoulder and continue to behave like a stuffed animal. The green girl was also advised to hold on tight, since the walk is gonna get a little bumpy as they walk home. "Yeah, okay." She squeaked in a depressed tone. "I'll try my best..." She grasped her tiny hands onto Ee'deem's fur, but she still laid down on the bat Pokemon because she was too weak to sit up. "Yet again," she mumbled to herself. "This fur is rather fluffy, almost like Decidueye's feathers when I was picked up by her. But wait, Isn't Ee'deem barely taller than me, now? *Sigh* I feel so embarrassed."

A long walk later, Eli decided she was going to attempt to walk on her own, even though she is not yet used to her shrunken down form. "Hey Paiyu," She squeaked to her friend sadly. "I'm gonna try and walk on my own if you don't mind." With a cold look on her face, she rolled off of Ee'deem and got herself off, dusting the slush off her oversized lab coat and plushie. She attempted to try and stand up, failing once before finally doing it. While walking, her legs still felt like they were made of weak jello blobs, stumbling a little with every step as she was trying to get used to her smaller self again. She didn't walk very fast, either, but instead walked up to Paiyu before slowing herself down in sadness.

Eventually, they had finally reached her friend's vacation house for the last time, with throbbing pain in her little legs as she walked up to the door. Once one of Paiyu's parents opened the door, the poor green professor replied with a saddened squeak, "Hey, I guess." She slowly walked over to the bean bag, flopping into it as she held her Azure Dragon plushie with tears rolling down her eyes. She curled up into the foam-filled pillow while still holding her two foot long bendable Yokai Watch plush in her hidden now-tiny hands. When they asked her if she was okay, Eli explained the entire thing with a cold, depressed tone in her high-pitched voice, "No, I'm not fine, thanks for asking. Even though we had some fun today, something threw my day into a downward spiral. You may not believe me, but while I was at my personal laboratory, I found an antidote that made me big once again. I frolicked around with Paiyu for a bit to the Stuff Mart and beyond, getting this Azure Dragon plushie and feeling genuine happiness for once. But then, once we hit the woods, my antidote wore off and I shrunk again to this size. *Buries face in her Azure Dragon plush* Nyrough! Just thinking about that moment makes me feel even smaller! I know I can make another antidote, but I I'm just gonna screw it up, anyways, because of my dumb instincts and tiny hands! *Sob*"

Even though Caramella was trying her best to make Eli happy again, it soon became apparent that her efforts were useless. Her psychic power nearly spent, the Alolan Raichu placed the peridot girl back onto the snowy ground and dissipated the aura around her. The now-tiny gem girl burst into tears and collapsed, sobbing that she didn't want to walk anymore... if they were to go anywhere else, she would have to be carried there. Paiyu wasn't strong enough to do that, and Caramella still needed time to regenerate her psychic energy. None of her other Pokemon could act as a temporary mount for her friend, either.
Except one...

Paiyu unclipped the only Pokeball that had not been opened - the Dusk Ball marked with concentric circles - and pressed the button. A beam of light shot out and materialized into Eedee'em the Noivern. He began to thrash around, but this caused the Soothe Bell tied to his neck to ring and calm him. His trainer retrieved a Kebia berry from her bag and said, "Please do me a favor, Ee. I know you won't like it, but friends are meant to help each other." She threw the fruit into the air for the Flying-Dragon type to catch before bending down to tell Eli her plan. "Ee will have to carry you. It's the best way I can think of for now... hold on tight while Caramella gets you up there." She turned to Caramella, who was still floating low to preserve her remaining psychic power, and sprayed the Mouse Pokemon with one of the Ethers she had bought back in the Stuff Mart. With her energy restored, the Electric-Psychic type squeaked ecstatically and zipped around again. "Sorry, Caramella, but you're gonna have to levitate Eli again. Just put her on top of Ee, who is over there." Paiyu told the Raichu, who once again began to concentrate her newfound psychic energy as the trainer stepped out of the way. The green girl, still curled up in the snow with her Azure Dragon plushie wrapped around her, was slowly levitated off the ground and on to the back of the Sound Wave Pokemon. "Hold on tight, Eli. He won't fly but it's still going to be quite a bumpy ride!" Paiyu called out to her friend before throwing another Kebia berry for Ee. "I guess we'll be going home now."

Eli felt the presence of both her friend's and her own Pokemon around her as she continued to sob. "Why did this have to happen to me?" she moaned. But all of a sudden, the green girl felt a strange psychic aura around her. Could it be Mewtwo lifting her up? None of her other Pokemon had psychic moves except for Lugia, but she knew he was far too high up to notice her devastation. Shockingly with no pun intended, it was Paiyu's Alolan Raichu, Caramella, using her levatating powers to produce an illusion that she was tall again. Even Paiyu got in onto the act, but judging from the inflection of her voice when saying "I guess," Eli knew the attempt at making her cheer up was fruitless. Even the oversized lab coat sleeves that have drooped over her tiny green hands made the magic trick more exposed than it needed to be. "Thanks, Caramella and Paiyu," she sighed in a depressing tone. "I know you guys are trying to help, and I appreciate it, but your attempts at trying to make me my tall self again through illusions are fruitless."

A few seconds later, Caramella dropped the poor, small, green professor onto her feet. As Eli stood there while looking down on the ground, her legs felt quite weak due to having to get used to a smaller body. It almost felt like she had her tall legs amputated, except there's only a slight bit of pain and she felt like she was standing on a giant wobbly jello cake. The weakness unfortunately took Eli over and she collapsed on the ground once more, hugging her Azure Dragon with tears in her eyes. "Paiyu," She let out a moaning squeak with subdued sobbing. "I know this sounds very lazy of me, but right now, I don't feel like walking in this small body I'm pretty much stuck with. *sniffle* If you feel like we should go somewhere else for our last day, I would gladly prefer it if you carry me to wherever it is you wanna go. *Sniffles and holds her Azure Dragon plushie close to her tiny beating heart and face* I'm sorry you didn't get to see enough of me as my tall self. I bet you liked how fun I was when I was at that height playing games and *Sniffle* not moping as much, did you?"

Once again, like before, Eli agreed to visit the Soras woods for what may be their last time. After a little walk through the snowy forest, the girls found a clearing that looked like the perfect place to chill. The green girl released her Pokemon to play with the local wild Pokemon as well as Paiyu's, who were already out of their Pokeballs, as she and Paiyu sat down on the rocks. They talked for a while before the gem girl retrieved her rPhone to take pictures of her tall self. She then asked the trainer if she would like to be in a group photo. "Sure, Eli!" she responded, then called out to her Pokemon to gather round too. Soon enough everyone was posed for the picture, and the girls did their most charming smiles as Eli pressed the button...

But this joyous moment was quickly interrupted. The phone fell to the ground with a thud as Eli restrained a cry out of immense pain, forcing tears out of her eyes. Before Paiyu knew what was happening, her green friend grabbed her as if holding on for dear life, squeaking out that the antidote was expiring, as the trainer felt her getting lighter by the second. Looking down, she couldn't see her friend's legs anymore, for they were once again hidden beneath the now-oversized lab coat. "It was a lie..." the peridot girl uttered before limply falling on the snowy ground, curling up as she sobbed into her Azure Dragon plush, moaning "Why..." over and over. Paiyu knelt down to comfort her, and could now hear Eli clearly asking "Why couldn't it be permanent... Why?!" The trainer couldn't answer that, even though she truly wanted to get her friend out from under the rain cloud. By now both Eli and Paiyu's Pokemon had gathered around their crying friend, not knowing what to do. Caramella the Raichu began to squeak and zip around in circles, making the others step away from Eli. Once they were far enough from the gem girl, the Mouse Pokemon closed her eyes, focusing psychic energy. A bright aura materialized around Eli as she was slowly lifted into the air, until she was as high above the ground as her tall form once stood. "Look, Eli! You're tall again... I guess." Paiyu said to her friend, trying to lighten things up.

Immediately after paying for the items she bought at the Stuff Mart, Eli heard her friend thank the green girl for taking her there in the first place. "No problem!" Eli giggled. "I'm glad I got to go to this place with you for once." After heading out of the Soras exclusive mega mart, Paiyu handed the green girl some post-it notes. "What's this?" She questioned. The young trainer explained that the notes were for preventing that one time where the one-small green scientist had risked her life to write a note for Paiyu after climbing the tallest tree. Minuscule tears of joy welled up in Eli's eyes as she knelt down to hug her friend. "Thank you so much, Paiyu! You're probably the most kind and thoughtful friend I've ever met! Thanks to you, I'm sure something like that won't ever happen again!" Eventually, Paiyu suggested that they'd go to the forest and chill out while their Pokemon play in the distance. "Golly gee!" The now-tall green professor smiled. "That sounds like a wonderful idea! Let's go, my amazing friend!" With no question, she ran off on the path to the woods, where she beckoned her friend to follow.

The familiar noise of Pokemon cries filled Eli's ears as the two girls finally arrived in the woods. They eventually arrived in the perfect clearing where their Pokemon could play at. The green girl took out all her Pokeballs from her lab coat pockets and shouted, "Come on out, Crimson, Lugia, Alolan Muk, Golem, and Kangaskhan! Feel to play in this clearing if you'd like!" Out came all 5 of her called Pokemon, feeling excited to play around except for Crimson who just sat there and watched with a calm stare. Lugia flew around to chase any incoming storms away while Golem and Kangaskhan bounded around the woods playing tag. Alolan Muk, however, hung out with the other wild Pokemon as usual trying to make friends. Mimikyu got off it's trainer's shoulders and joined the Alolan Muk to help it make friends. Eventually, Eli sat herself on a rock, getting out her rPhone to take pictures of herself while the antidote was still going strong. But then, an idea had hit her. If she could take a picture with her friends at the Aether Foundation, why not take one with Paiyu as well? She turned to her friend and asked, "Hey Paiyu! Would you like to take a picture with me? I'd like to cherish this moment by immortalizing it with my rPhone!" After humbly agreeing to the green girl's request, the two were all set up to take a picture. With a smile, Eli squeaked, "Say Chee-"

But all of a sudden, pain hit her out of nowhere and made her pause for a few seconds before falling down onto the ground. No! Eli thought with fear. I-i-it can't be! Why now!? The antidote can't wear off at this very moment! I haven't even showed this form off to Paiyu's parents, yet! Heck, I was already getting used to my tallness! Unfortunately for her, the antidote had already worn off. Using the last of her strength, she grasped Paiyu's shoulders tightly and squeaked with tears in her eyes, "Paiyu! Please, help me! T-t-the antidote is already wearing off, and that was the only pill I had!" But it was already too late. Massive amounts of pain started building up in her bones, burning up as she began to feel herself shrink down. This was no nightmare, now, but a real reliving of her tragic downfall. Her body slowly became smaller and smaller, going down from 5'8"... 5'3"... 5'0"... 4'11"... 4'8"... And then finally down to 4'5". Her lab coat couldn't even fit the poor green professor anymore, and her little legs hung while she clutched her friend's shoulders and sobbed onto one of them. "All I wanted was to feel genuine happiness again..." She muttered to her friend. "The Placebo Effect turned out for me to be just a lie. A big stupid massive lie." The grasp of her now-tiny hands became weaker and weaker until she fell safely on the ground. Because of this, her small green hands were covered by her now-oversized lab coat sleeves and continued to cry on the ground, lying there on her drooping lab coat and Azure Dragon plushie while tightly hugging it as the plush's store-temperature was felt on her face. She didn't feel like getting her tiny body up, because she didn't want to get used to her smallness again. The green girl continued to sob softly and moaned to Paiyu, "Paiyu, why couldn't my antidote be permanent...?"

Fortunately for Paiyu, Eli instantly agreed with her suggestion to visit the shopping district near the square. In fact, she was raring to go, running in the direction of the square before glancing back at her trainer friend, as if their roles from the Godz-Eli chase game had been reversed. Paiyu eagerly followed her tall friend into the square, stopping in front of what seemed to be a department store-sized Pokémart. Eli explained that this facility was a Stuff Mart, a renowned shopping center that only exists in Soras. When asked if they should check it out, the girl eagerly agreed, and both sped through the sliding glass doors with barely contained excitement.

Neither the mall in Hau'oli City nor the Thrifty Megamart could be adequately compared to this store. A great variety of items - from basic Pokémon-catching supplies to toys and clothing - were sold here. Another thing the trainer noticed was that many shoppers had their Pokémon walking or flying alongside them. Her green friend explained that letting one or more of one's Pokémon out was not only permitted, but also encouraged. As Eli dashed away with her Mimikyu in tow to check out the clothing section, Paiyu unclipped four of her Pokéballs, releasing Juniper, Caramella, Ramune, and Yuki (not Eedee'em for obvious reasons, nor Flaire for she couldn’t completely control the abilities that would otherwise make her a fire hazard). The trainer decided to look at the Pokémart section; here she saw both the item ubiquitous to every Pokémart - standard, Great, and Ultra Balls as well as healing supplies and repels - as well as more rarely seen items - esoteric varieties of Pokéballs, stat-boosters, and notes for Pokémon to transport. Paiyu placed a few Ethers (she was running low on those as her Pokémon were running low on PP) along with some snacks for her Pokémon, as well as some of these notes, remembering how Eli had almost died trying to pick leaves that would work only as rudimentary notes when they first met, into her basket.

Next, she went to the clothing section; here there was apparel for both people and Pokémon. After looking around for a while, the girl found only one shirt that she liked. Finding accessories for her Pokémon was difficult too: Juniper was already wearing her leaf cloak, complete with a natural bow, and refused to take off even the hood; Ramune's head-fin prevented him from wearing a hat; the same could be said of Yuki with her luxuriant mane. The only one who could was Caramella, but after being called over to try it on, responded with an annoyed "Chuuu..." when she looked at herself in the mirror, and proceeded to psychically levitate the hat back to where Paiyu found it. Eventually Paiyu gave up on the idea and moved on to the toy section. She already had a bunch of Pokémon plush dolls ((akin to stuffed real-life animals)) back in Malie City, but there was one especially elusive plushie of a different kind, very expensive to order online, missing from her collection, that she hoped was being sold here... and indeed she did find the little green Inkayling ((from the Pokémon universe's version of Splatoon)) amid a pile of Yokai ((aforementioned as being the equivalent of Pokémon)) dolls, an odd one out. The trainer carefully placed it into the basket before turning her attention to the miniature Pokémon figures in their glass display case, but ultimately decided not to buy any of them. Meanwhile, her Pokémon were baffled over other plush dolls, believing them to be others of their kind. As she was about to walk out of the section, the trainer noticed someone behind her, and turned to see Eli with a long plushie of a Yokai resembling a Dragonair wrapped around her. "Hey, isn’t that Azure Dragon? It’s adorable!" Paiyu remarked. Her friend then explained that this was her favorite of the creatures, that she would add to her huge collection back at home. When asked why she had bought small clothes, the green girl said that they were for her shrunken self to wear. "Of course!" Paiyu had almost forgotten that the antidote's effects were most likely temporary. As they walked to the checkout counters with their Pokémon close behind, the trainer commented, "This is the most awesome shopping center I’ve ever been to! Thanks for showing me this place, Eli!"

After they paid for their items and exited the Stuff Mart, Paiyu took the notes out of her bag. "I bought these for you, Eli. Remember that time in the woods when you sent Crimson to look for me? You said that you didn’t have any notes and had to risk your life to find a substitute... That won't happen again. Here you go." The gem girl then asked where they should go next. "I'm pretty sure we've bought everything we needed back in the Stuff Mart... perhaps we should go somewhere peaceful where all of our Pokémon can be out. Like maybe a nice spot in the forest. Besides, now I know better to use Yuki," the trainer glanced back to find the Fox Pokémon frolicking in the slush, "if a Serperior were to show up. Should we go?"

"Yeah," Eli squeaked in a happy tone. "I don't want to end up missing out on so many stores in such a big city like this!" The green girl got herself up from the snow, dusting off the lab coat that could now fit her perfectly. Before she ran off to the square, however, Eli glanced back at Paiyu and shouted, "What are you waiting for, Paiyu? Let's go!" The two girls both ran off into the square, which was less Christmas-themed than usual. The tree in the middle had been cleared of it's decorations overnight except for the glimmering star on top. Almost all the houses had their decorations removed, and the signs in stores instead had New Year sales instead of Christmas ones. A familiar store had caught her eye known as the Stuff Mart. She had heard of it many times in Alola, but it was only exclusive to the Soras Region, as it had more than a normal mart did. Curiosity built up in the now-tall green professor as she finally told her young trainer friend where she wanted to go, "Hey Paiyu! I've never really went to a Stuff Mart before, and I've heard it was only exclusive to the Soras region, so I think it's best we go here as one of our stores." Once her friend agreed with her, they ran across the square over to the larger than life Soras Pokemart.

An automatic door opened as the girls ran into the Stuff Mart. Loads of clothing items and toys were all scattered across the store, both for people and Pokemon. There were all kinds of trainer items from potions to even rare candies, all at a relatively cheap price. What's more, there were people walking around with their Pokemon Partners, big and small, around the store. This gave Eli the idea to finally snap her Mimikyu out of it's plushie trance. "Hey Mimikyu," she told her Partner Pokemon. "You don't have to be plush-like, now, because they allow Pokemon in this store." From this, an excited "Kyu~!" noise came from the Mimic Pokemon. "You can let out Juniper if you want to, Paiyu!" Eli turned to her friend and explained. "This store allows you to walk around with at least one Pokemon outside your Pokeball. I heard you can even get a discount if you have one out!" While walking around the store with her feminine-looking Mimikyu, the green girl noticed the perfect shirt for her to wear casually. It was a blue T-Shirt with a Mimikyu on it, featuring a single rainbow behind it. Unfortunately, this shirt was too small for her now-tall yet green self, but could fit her smaller Peridot form perfectly. As a Peridot, Eli never really had any casual wear that could fit her smaller self, so if this antidote ever wore off, at least she'll have something else to wear besides her old Aether lab coat. She grabbed that as well as some pants of her smaller self's size, with no need to try them on. Thankfully, there was no need to get any clothing of her taller self's size, since she had plenty of those back at her parent's house in the Alola region.

A few minutes later, she stumbled herself all the way to the toys section, looking for any missing plushies from her father's game, Yokai Watch ((It's this universe's version of Pokemon from what I've decided.)) While looking in this section, she found many plushies of Jibanyan, Whisper, Komasan, Robonyan, and Manjimutt, but she already had most of these except for Manjimutt, which was the one she aimed to get last because it was her least favorite. However, a giant, 2 foot bendable plushie of Azure Dragon caught her eye, which made the green girl extremely happy. Since this plushie wasn't boxed, she wrapped it around her waist like a belt, willing to purchase it with the money she made while at the Aether Foundation and from winning the battle with Khan. Eli ran around the store, looking for Paiyu as the Mimic Pokemon looked down at the Yokai plushie belt with confusion yet happiness, mostly because it thought it was another Pokemon. Soon, the two girls met up with their chosen items, and Eli squeaked to her, "Well, it looks like I got what I needed from here! If you're wondering why I'm buying these small sized clothes, it's just in case if the antidote ever wears off. As for this plushie, well, it's my favorite Yokai, and I need it for my massive collection of Yokai Watch plushies back at my home in Alola. Are you ready to go pay for all this stuff and go off somewhere else? And where would you like to go next after this?"

The girls ran out of the lab, through the woods, and back into the city in their playful chase. It was quite a challenge for Paiyu to keep ahead of the now-tall Eli, who could run faster than any kaiju-like Pokémon, and didn’t lose her footing even once. On the way, Paiyu heard many a passerby ridicule her friend, but they were met with a retort of "and I don’t care!" from the green girl. Eventually, the peridot girl did catch up with the trainer, doing a funny Godz-Eli impression before pushing her into a snowdrift. Both got up laughing, Eli being so happy that she could leave Soras on such a happy note. She also mentioned that even if the antidote's effect turned out to be temporary, she would rather imagine it to be permanent. Paiyu did know of a story about a certain young trainer who, possibly with this same mindset and the help of the legendary Ho-oh, effectively gave himself eternal youth. Perhaps one day the girls could go to Johto and speak to the Rainbow Pokémon to make Eli's wish come true.

Paiyu returned from this tangent when she heard Eli ask what they should do next before bidding the region farewell. "Maybe we should go back to the square... we never got the time to check out what was in the stores. Sound good?" the trainer suggested.

Even though Eli's newer and much taller Peridot form seemed unfamiliar to the young trainer, Paiyu told her that if the green girl was happy, she would be too. A few moments later, Eli's friend did something that she never thought she'd do: She made a Godz-Eli joke. A gleeful smirk showed up on her face as the green girl watched her friend playfully run away from her tallness. "Rawr!" She pretended. "I may look like Godzilla, but due to international copyright laws, I'm not, for I am Godz-Eli!" She playfully ran after her friend, stumbling a little in her new, taller body before quickly regaining her balance. While running, she playfully made an impression of Godzilla and roared in her high pitched voice. Something about this tallness made her happy, like she didn't care at all for what she looked like.

As the duo playfully ran back to Carina City, a couple people noticed Eli's green skin and called her a freak, but unlike her old, smaller self, she didn't give a flying Farfetch'd. Instead, she squeaked back at the insulters, "And I don't care, random citizens!", as she playfully ran across the street to catch her young trainer friend. Despite her smaller Peridot form being much faster, her longer legs could get a lot more coverage on the ground, making her run as much as her smaller self without much effort. She didn't even trip on the ground, either! "Nya," she squealed. "I feel so alive!" Eventually when catching up to her, she pulled off another joking Godz-Eli impression and shouted, "Rawr! I'm gonna get you, Paiyu! Nya ha ha!" before piling the both of them into a big mound of shoveled snow. The two girls laughed together, with Eli being the first to calm herself. "You know, Paiyu," She squeaked in a happy yet calm tone. "I'm glad I got to spend our last days of Soras like this. There's something about being this tall that makes me feel more alive, dominant, and in control about myself, you know? I know this pill could end up being temporary and all, but because the Placebo Effect is a thing, I believe with all my heart that I want this pill's effects to be permanent and last forever." Feeling like she's on cloud nine, Eli dazed up at the cloudy sky for a bit and then continued on with her thoughts. "So, what do you want to do next for possibly our last day together in this fine region?"

The walk to the lab was not as long as Paiyu thought it would be: the place wasn't even ten minutes away from her house. Nature was already beginning to reclaim the abandoned facility: its walls were overgrown with vines, and Paiyu could even make out a few nests of small Pokemon hidden among them. The great glass door that led into the lab was cracked all over and didn't seem to work anymore, but automatically opened as Eli walked in front of it, closing behind the girls once they had fully entered.

"Woah..." Paiyu was simply awed at the amount and variety of equipment that lay around the lab. Although quite a bit of dust had settled on them, glassware of all shapes and sizes, ranging from test tubes to flasks to beakers and everything in between, were neatly arrayed on countertops. On the walls were hundreds of papers bearing sketches of Pokemon, people, and objects. Just as the trainer was about to ask how exactly the interior of the establishment was kept so well maintained in contrast with the exterior, Eli explained that, as an upside of her transformation, she had much more time to do things by herself, which she put to good use by restoring the lab. Locking her eyes on a cabinet above, the green girl attempted to clamber up a counter, but could not pull herself up onto the platform. "You need help?" Paiyu asked her friend, but was met with a determined refusal.

Finally the peridot girl got on top of the lab counter and pulled open the cabinet, grinning as she had finally found what she had came for: the antidote to Apotoxin, the chemical that had made her shrink. Eli explained to her friend that its effects could either be temporary or permanent (she did not know for sure), and if the latter case were true, the little Eli she knew and loved would be gone forever. As Paiyu wondered what to make of this prospect, her thoughts were interrupted by a thud. Looking down, she saw her friend wincing in pain as the antidote took effect, causing her to grow before the trainer's very eyes. Knowing not whether to feel awe or concern over this, she was overtaken by a wave of relief as Eli got back up, dusting off her labcoat that no longer trailed on the ground. Triumphant that she had finally become tall again, the still-green girl hugged Paiyu, who was now the smaller one, hard, lifting her a few inches off the ground. "I-I don't know what to say about this... I think this new form of yours is unfamiliar, but if you're happy, I'm happy! You know what, this is actually cool. Oh no!" the girl called out to invisible companions, "Run! A huge kaiju 'Godz-Eli' is approaching!" Paiyu then bolted out through the automatic door, looking back at her friend to encourage her to join in on the game.

When Eli told her friend about the laboratory trip, the young trainer made a joke about Godz-Eli, making the both of them laugh. A few moments later, Paiyu went off to get ready for the big day ahead of her. Normally, Eli would adjust her fluffy hair in the bathroom, but she was too excited to care. All she did was simply spray her tiny body with vanilla just in case she were to stink up. Oh my stars! She thought with a smile on her face. I'm so excited to go back to my lab and actually do something about my shortness for once! Around 5 minutes later, Paiyu was finally ready to go on the adventure and both the girls ran downstairs in glee. After a quick confirmation with her parents, they were off. Standing outside their house, Eli felt a lot less snow on the ground than yesterday, and most of it was turned to slush. Maybe the sun melted most of it away. "Alright," Eli squeaked while looking up at her friend. "To get to my lab, all you have to do is follow me!" And so, both girls ran off out of the city and into the woods and not too far away, where they eventually found the abandoned laboratory, covered in snowed-on vines and Pokemon nests. Around the relatively big facility, there was a lot of mud and mini ponds. some of the water was supplied from an even bigger swamp just behind the lab itself. "Ah," she squeaked with glee. "Here we are! Lab sweet lab! Ever since I met you, Paiyu, I've never really had the time to go here and perform some research, mostly because I'm not as lonely and cold anymore with you around. Sure, it looks crappy from the outside, but that's because I didn't show you the interior yet!"

The two girls went inside the abandoned laboratory, only for it to look not quite as abandoned as it's exterior. There were plenty of refurbished cloning tubes, chemistry tables, and lots of other science-y gizmos that got a complete make-over. Thousands of drawings were hung around the lab, almost like it was an art museum. Some of them were Pokemon drawings, others were self portraits of Eli's human form. Heck, there's even a starter choosing table as well, complete with all three of the Sinnoh starters. Looking around the lab, Eli found plenty of cabinets where the antidote could possibly be stored in, but of course, her head was the only part of her body that peeked out from the tables. Before she went off to look for the antidote, Eli provided knowledge to the young trainer of why everything looks so fancy inside the lab compared to the outside. "Well," she explained. "Ever since I got turned into a Peridot, I had all the time in the world to refurbish this place up, and despite my short stature, I did my best to make everything from top to bottom all sparkly and clean." She looked around the room, trying to find the right cabinet that her antidote was in. A few minutes later, she locked her eyes onto the place she remembered to put the antidote pills in. She walked up to the cabinet, only to find that she's going to have to do some parkour to get up onto the countertop. The green girl attempted to climb onto the lab table, but failed the first time because she was too weak. Noticing that her friend is struggling to reach something, Paiyu asked if she needed any help. "No, I'm fine, thanks." she snarled.

Soon, after three tries, Eli finally got herself onto the top of the lab table and opened the cabinet to find one antidote pill made with Chinese ginseng root schnaps. "A-ha!" The green girl exclaimed. "Here it is!" She hopped back down onto the floor, feeling a little pain from her tiny legs and feet crashing onto the floor, but she recovered from it rather quickly. She ran up to Paiyu and showed her the antidote. "This, Paiyu, is the antidote to the Apotoxin-4869, made from the most genuine Chinese ginseng root schnaps possible." She squeaked. "I've always doubted this pill's ability to grow me back to normal size since none of my growing methods seemed to work on me in the past, but after doing some quick research on my rPhone last night, I feel this is the one, now." She took a deep breath and the continued her thoughts. "But know this, Paiyu. Once I take this pill, the effects could either be permanent or temporary, and if it ends up being permanent, this means no more small Eli... For good. I won't look human anymore, either, but I'd rather be a tall monster than a small one. *Sigh* Sure, being small has upsides, but I've felt more of the downsides than anything. I guess it's time you see me for who I really am, Paiyu." After the biggest breath she could possibly take, it was time for Eli to achieve her happy ending. She quickly engulfed the pill, needing no water to chug it down. All of a sudden, she collapsed onto the ground, feeling pain yet excitement for her bones growing and growing to make her hands and arms bigger. Then, she grew taller and taller to her real height of 5'8", and now her lab coat was the perfect fit for her. Eli was finally tall again. Although her skin was still green and was technically a Peridot instead of a human, she didn't care. She was just too happy to gain her height back. Still standing up after growing, she looked down at Paiyu with a smile on her face. "It... I-i-it worked! Alright! I'm finally the Godz-Eli I was meant to be! Yes!!" She raised her fists in the air and gave Paiyu a big hug, almost lifting her friend up at one point. "Oh my stars," She squeaked, still sporting her high pitched voice. "I've finally fufilled my dream that I wanted ever since the lab accident! Thank you, Paiyu! I'm so happy!!" After that small celebration, she knelt down to Paiyu and said, "So... Uh... What do you think of my new, tall, majestic Peridot form?"

After Paiyu told her friend what Mewtwo had told her, Eli seemed moved, once again reciting her vow to be the trainer's "guardian friend" as both slowly descended into sleep, the trainer pondering whether the new interpretation of her nightmare could finally quell it.

Once again, as before, she woke up in front of the Lavender Tower. Nothing had changed: the town still retained its eeriely peaceful atmosphere, and not a single soul, human or Pokemon, was to be seen. Mustering courage, Paiyu strode towards the entrance of the tower, ready to face the monster within. Now in the dark interior of the structure, the girl took a deep breath and shifted her eyes to look at the staircase at the other side of the room, lifting her Dexphone to illuminate the recess. Reflective red eyes materialized out of the darkness, narrowing as they focused on her. Paiyu knew sometimes Marowaks could have red eyes, but, judging by the height those eyes were above the ground, this creature was too tall to be a Bone Keeper Pokemon; maybe it was because it was standing on the stairs, but the mysterious Pokemon seemed taller than Paiyu, let alone the 1-meter tall Marowak. Even though she knew that, it seemed like all the rest of her Pokedexic knowledge had suddenly vanished. A Pokemon as tall as she was, with red eyes? She desperately searched her mind for all the lost information. The thing in the stairwell issued a deep growl, much like the sound Crimson made when Paiyu accidentally touched him. "Easy... easy..." the trainer lifted her hands up in an attempt to calm the Pokemon. Its eyes widened at the sound of her voice, and the growling stopped as quickly as it had started. But before the trainer could approach it, the beast let out a deafening roar - not of intimidation, but more like one of triumph, like a Tyrantrum would over its fallen prey - and bounded towards her. Before she could react, she was crushed under the Pokemon's immense weight like all the times before, but this time, there were no claws piercing her arms. Paiyu looked into the creature's eyes - although angular, they did not express rage or fear, but instead, something else that she couldn't quite put her finger on - and felt rough fur brush against her limbs. Another roar filled her ears as she blacked out.

Paiyu woke up, not suddenly, but slowly out of the dreamless sleep that took over after her blackout in the Lavender Town dream. The clock on the bedside table read 8 AM, much too early to wake up. The trainer snuggled down under the thick blanket - it was a cold morning, after all - to try and get a few extra hours of sleep. After a while, she was awoken by a gentle poking at her face, and opened her eyes to see Eli. "It's our last day in Soras; we better do something special!" Paiyu remarked as she cast off the blanket to get up. Her green friend suggested that they swing by her personal lab to find the antidote to her shrinking condition, to which the trainer responded, "That would be awesome! You can finally be the Godz-Eli you want to be! Besides, I'd really want to see what you kept there, in your lab..." She then dashed into the bathroom to change into her day clothes, grabbed her Pokeball-belt, bag, and winter coat, and sped down the stairs with barely-contained excitement to tell her parents their plan for the day. "Don't worry. Eli should know the way, and I'll stay in contact." After bidding farewell to them as Eli joined her, the girls opened the door and stepped out into a world of sun and snow, Paiyu waiting for Eli to show her the way.

After a confirmation from her friend, it was finally time for Eli and her to go back to the vacation house. As they walked past the huge tree, now with people and Pokemon taking off the decorations one by one, the green girl wondered if she will ever be as tall as that tree ever again. Meh, she shrugged. It's too late, now. Yet again, I wonder why the Aether Foundation didn't let me back in now that Melvin's gone. Could something be wrong with my friend/boss, Lusamine? But something gave her butterflies in her stomach, despite not having one anymore now that she's a gem: She had to go back to Alola sometime, even if it means haunting her with bad memories once more. Eli looked down on the ground and sighed nervously. What would the region think of her now that she's stuck in a small, green body forever? Would they still think she's a monster, or have things changed for the better? These thoughts still remained with her, despite being excited to celebrate Crimbus for the first time in forever with people that adore her appearance.

A few hours later, they finally arrived at the vacation house, with decorations still up for the holiday season. Eli felt extremely exhausted from pushing her tiny body everywhere without a break, and this was finally the moment where she can snuggle in that bean bag for possibly the last time in her life. She used the last of her energy to run up to the door, clearly breathing heavily, even though she didn't have to breathe to survive. Once Paiyu rang the bell, it wasn't her mother that opened the door, but her father instead. Weirdly enough, he actually gave a warm welcome to Eli instead of his own daughter. The green girl was shocked, yet happy that someone acknowledged her presence. Sparkles glimmered in her green eyes as she couldn't resist giving this lovely man a hug. She squeaked happily, knowing that someone actually loves her for who she is on the inside besides Paiyu. Rejuvenated, she ran straight towards the bean bag at almost lightning speeds and flopped right onto it, snuggling in all it's warmth after enduring the cold for so long. And so, Paiyu went first with sharing her story, but it looked like she left something out. I wonder what that could be? She pondered. It was finally her turn to share her story. "Oh boy," she squeaked. "Where do I begin!? Today was so freaking awesome! The decorations outside were marvelous, and I even met some new friends as well! Their names are Russo and Grey, but I think they're busy doing their own thing right now for you to meet them fully. Maybe someday you guys will, but for now, ehhh... However..."

Eli sighed in a depressing tone before continuing her thoughts. "Now's the part of the story where things get a little tragic. I tried applying for the Aether Foundation, but they rejected me, and I was so down in the dumps that I ran away into the woods and ended up almost losing my humanity! But... Then a legendary Pokemon came around to show me that I do matter, despite the lab accident that made me look like... This. *Sigh* I'm still afraid that if I ever go back to the Aether Foundation, they're just going to end up treating me like a freak like what your home region did a few years ago. Even then, I still miss all the friends I made there. It was just so... Homey, to me." A single tear flowed from her left eye, still showing that not all her regret has completely vanished. Paiyu's parents showed great concern for her, even to the point where the young trainer's father would call up a friend to get her back in. From this, her eyes began to sparkle. "Thanks, guys." She calmly squeaked. "I don't know what I'd do without you..." Soon, a giant conversation ensued about Crimbus that lasted for hours. No presents were given, but that still brought a level of joy that Eli thought she'd never receive.

Many hours later, it was finally time for bed. Aww, the green girl thought. I don't want this to end so soon! My family would've celebrated it even longer to see if Santa would come by their house with a Jynx by his side! She got up from her bean bag and shrugged, following her friend with a satisfied yet disappointed look on her face. A long flight of tiring stairs later, she followed Paiyu into her temporary room and climbed herself onto the bed. After her friend got ready, the green girl embraced herself for the jealousy that she would receive from a belly flop onto the bed, but instead, the young trainer climbed herself in, yet with less effort since she's taller than Eli was. Oh. She thought. I guess Paiyu really does care for my well being after all. While snuggling near Paiyu, Eli was nearly about to fall asleep until she was going to explain why she ignored her for a split second back before she talked to Jack on his Zapdos. "Yeah," she curiously squeaked. "Was it because I was becoming more Peridot-like and you only heard me squeaking?" Thankfully, it wasn't that, but because Mewtwo talked to her about Arashi. He mentioned that her old Quilava pal couldn't be found at Rocket HQ, but is still alive and out there looking for it's trainer. But then, the genetic Pokemon told the young trainer that she was a great friend to Eli, and that now they were best friends, no rainclouds could ever bring them down again. Sparkling happy tears filled the green girl's eyes, even after friend apologized for ignoring her, and gave a warm embrace to the side while they were both laying down on the bed. "It's okay, Paiyu." she smiled before falling asleep and purring. "It's okay. I'll always be the one guardian friend to protect you from now until forever..."

Suddenly, Eli woke up in a familiar purple-skied domain. It was yet another Mewtwo dream, but this time, Marshadow was on the cloned Pokemon's left shoulder. "Ugh, Mewtwo..." she growled, feeling irritated that she wasn't in another dream of hers. "What do you want, now?" The telepathic Pokemon began to speak without moving his mouth, "Do not feel grumpy. I have only arrived to tell you some news about your former workplace." "The Aether Foundation?" She tilted her head. "What do they want from me? I thought they hated my guts!" The genetic Pokemon shook it's head. "They actually do not hate your 'guts.' It turns out everyone there is influenced by Melvin's UB:01 juice, except for a few lucky survivors, and what's more, Lusamine is stuck living in another dimension. Do not fret, though, nobody has been turned into a Peridot, but they instead act more animalistic and psychotic than usual." Eli was in shock. How could Melvin's secret plan actually work to the point where it's corrupted everyone's minds to hate her Peridot form and act based on instinct?

But the real question was, why did she out of everyone get turned into a Peridot instead of having her mind corrupted? Asking this same question with a worried tone in her high pitched voice, the clone of Mew finally gave his answer. "You were quite the lucky one, actually. The plan of Melvin's was to make you not only go behave like a feral animal, but to utilize your greatest fear to make you more vulnerable... Shrinking. To do this, he outsourced a specific dissolving pill called the Apotoxin-4869 to place in your drink, and with the combination of the UB:01 juice and ingredients in your potion, it ended up making you not only what you are, but also shrink down drastically in size as well." Eli was shocked. She couldn't believe that not only would Melvin do this to her, but she could've looked like this while keeping her old height as well, and in the end, she wouldn't have minded one bit for her looks. "What the absolute heck!?" She snarled, feeling cheated. "I can't believe Melvin didn't tell me all of this when revealing his plan to me! Why is it that I had to become this short, anyways!? Couldn't he just, oh, I don't know, make me the same size that I had when I was human and turn me into a larger Peridot instead? I mean, come on! I wouldn't mind becoming bigger, even if it meant having my nice personality get stripped away! Being small sucks!" The poor green girl then sat on the ground, curled up on the ground with not a sad look, but a grumpy one instead. Mewtwo, looking cold yet concerned, floated down to the small professor and tried his best to comfort her. "It may be true that you could've been the same size as your human self, but the chemicals in the Apotoxin-4869 actually cancels out most of the feral instincts you could've had, like losing your humanity, having cravings for fresh meat, drinking more of the UB:01 juice to get a dopamine rush, and even having a mad-obsession with the Ultra Beast, Nihlego. Believe me, you would become a completely different beast if not for Melvin's mistake of using the shrinking Apotoxin." Feeling a little better yet still angry at the height-shortening drug, she grumbled loudly, "Yeah, yeah. I know. I'm just a little grumpy, that's all. Can you take me back to reality, please? I'll summon you when I need you." Even though he felt guilty for telling Eli this, Mewtwo ended up respecting her needs and saying, "If that is what you wish." before poofing her back to reality.

Eli woke up rather quickly, feeling drowsy, but it was still dark outside. She checked her rPhone to find it was exactly 3:30am. Paiyu is seen sleeping on her side facing away from Eli, probably still having that Marowak dream again. She pulled up her right oversized lab coat sleeve to stare at her tiny green hand. Thinking of what Mewtwo said, how could the Apotoxin-4869 do all of this to her? She wouldn't mind looking like a freak of nature if she wasn't short, so what gives? She cringed at her small hand in disgust, forming it into a fist while growling at how small it was. But then, it hit her. If it's only one chemical that caused her to shrink down, why not find a cure for that pill instead? The green girl got out her rPhone to search up the drug's information on her Firekin browser. It turns out the pill has two side effects: It could either kill her or shrink down to a smaller size. But strangely enough, she didn't care about the killing factor of the pill, but instead, finding an permanent antidote for it. Fortunately for her, there were two antidotes, but they were merely temporary and hard to obtain. However, she did remember seeing the exact pill antidote somewhere in her abandoned lab. Maybe it wouldn't hurt to see what it's like to be tall again for a day. With a smile on her face, she dozed back to sleep, hoping for a nice dream to counter all the bad ones as she purred.

"Nya ha ha ha!" A gigantic version of Eli's Peridot form is seen stomping around Alola, crushing those who dared to mock her height when she was small. "Bow before me, clods! I'm not only better than Godzilla, but I've got a cooler name, too: Godz-Eli!" The green girl picked up a few buildings, throwing them into the ocean while laughing her face off. "Halt!" a tiny shout from below exclaims. "This is the Alolan military! We have you surrounded with fire types!" With a smirk on her face, she picks up the police cars and tosses them into the ocean like they're some sort of pebbles to skip. "One, two, three, four..." She counts happily. "I don't caaaaaare! I'm so happy!" She then picks up the fire type Pokemon and places them on a safe island, continuing to crush more buildings that didn't have Pokemon in them. "Woohoo!" Eli exclaims. "I'm the queen of the world!" But then, the now-giant green girl feels a pinch on her foot while carelessly dancing. It was none other than Apotoxin-4869, posing as a tack to ruin her dreams. "Ow." She coldly mumbles to herself. "This can't be good." After the pain subsided, she felt herself shrink down to the size of her Peridot form and squeaked, "Nooooo!" while she shrunk.

Eli woke up, wheezing in fear softly, but not enough to wake up Paiyu. "Darn it!" She grumbled. "And that was a good dream, too, before that dumb Apotoxin tack ruined it!" She turned to the alarm to find that it's 12pm, but also faced herself towards Paiyu, finding that she is sleeping peacefully, as she probably resolved her Lavender Town dream by now. The green girl looked at the window to find that the snowing stopped, but there is still some on the ground. "Well," she whispered to herself. "I guess it's time for me to tell Paiyu the news so that I can show off my personal laboratory." A few minutes later, Eli rolled herself out of bed to wake up her young trainer friend. "Hey, Paiyu!" She poked her best bud's sleeping face, glancing at each-other from eye-to-eye. "Sorry to wake you up, but I think I want to show you my personal laboratory before we go off to Alola because, well, Mewtwo told me the reason why I shrunk to this height is because of a pill called the Apotoxin-4869, and I feel like I've seen a familiar antidote in there. Who knows! Maybe I can give you a starter Pokemon as well. Let's get up and at 'em!"

"Yeah, I think we should go home. The sun's setting already..." Paiyu replied as she watched Jack fly away on the Zapdos. She and Eli then turned to walk back. On the way, they passed the square with the giant tree, which was once again surrounded by people on ladders as well as flying Pokemon of all different shapes and sizes, this time carefully removing the decorations that they had once put up. The shimmering star crystal on the top still remained, reflecting the golden light of the evening. Perhaps Paiyu would be able to see the tree in all its splendor once again if they come back here next year.

It was when the sun had almost disappeared beneath the horizon that the girls returned to Paiyu's home; the Xerneas statue and the fairy lights still were still there for now. Paiyu stepped up to ring the doorbell; it reminded her of the first when Eli came to stay. However, this time it was her dad who opened the door, and just like before Paiyu gave him a warm hug. "Welcome back, Eli!" he said, and they all entered through the door, down the hall, and into the living room, where Paiyu's mom was waiting. Paiyu then proceeded to recount their experiences for the day, while, once again, leaving out the parts involving Mewtwo. Both her mom and dad showed their consideration towards Eli when they heard about her unsucessful attempt at returning to Aether; the latter even suggested to call a friend of his who worked there to see if they could get Eli back in. And, upon mentioning the prospect of returning to Alola - which was to occur two days later - Mom said that they did have a spare room in their big house in Malie City, that Eli could stay in. Indeed, they was letting her live with them long-term!

The discussion continued even after darkness set in and snow began to fall outside. Soon enough, however, Paiyu's parents advised the girls to get some rest. They walked up the stairs to the small bedroom, with Paiyu making her way to the bathroom to do her night routine. Instead of flopping onto the bed when she came back out, she gingerly climbed in and tucked herself under the blanket, as she was not as tired this time. "Hey, Eli... about that time when I seemed to be ignoring you..." she began as she turned off the light, "I was being visited by Mewtwo. He told me that h-he -" the trainer was trying hard not to burst into tears, reminding herself what the Legendary said was not all bad, "didn't f-find Arashi in the R-Rocket HQ, but knows that - he is out there - somewhere - and will do all he can to find him. Then h-he congratulated me for being a great friend to you... he told me that there will be no rain cloud that can bring us down. I'm sorry if it looked like I was ignoring you; he did kinda apologize for keeping me with him for that amount of time."

After a long while of talking to Jack, Eli waved goodbye to her friend before running back to Paiyu as the ace trainer flew off with his Zapdos. She gazed up at the young trainer, tugging at her shirt while asking, "Why didn't you notice me? You can normally hear me just fine, so what gives!?" Finally, Paiyu responded to her plea, saying that she would explain later before asking where to go next. "Hmm," She squeaked thoughtfully, "We did spend an awful amount of time out here meeting new friends and going through crazy stuff, so I guess it's best we go back home and celebrate Crimbus for the time being, shall we?"

*I had to continue from the response to my previous post, and do something about the mad time skip in between*
After Paiyu finished recalling every detail she could remember from the strange nightmares, she looked down at her friend, half hoping that she might be able to explain even just a little bit of them. The green girl seemed to be thinking very hard, and just as Paiyu was thinking of giving up for now, Eli turned towards her to finally announce that she knew the mysterious place that the dreams took place in: Lavender Town. She then asked if she could retell the story of the Ghost of Marowak. Paiyu had heard this urban legend dozens of times as a child living in that town, but she didn't mind. As Eli recounted the famous tale, Paiyu felt tears welling up in her eyes as she thought of the poor Cubone and its dead mother - dead, killed by those Team Rocket people. But she remembered her mom telling her that this story had a happy ending: somebody did find the Cubone, and return it to the top level of the tower where the Marowak spirit resided. This last meeting between mother and child had finally calmed the Marowak's soul and allowed her to ascend to the afterlife.

When she finished her story, Eli began to explain how this tale - this dream - reflected Paiyu's memory of her lost starter, Arashi; how she had to find all kinds of ways to replace him, like catching Flaire; and that the trainer could only be at peace when, or should, they find each other once again. The peridot girl also touched on how the story could also relate to her own experiences post-transformation: both shunned, and shunning others. But just as the Marowak was reunited with its Cubone child, Eli had found a devoted friend - Paiyu - that had, in a way, undid her transformation. Indeed, she had wondered what she could have done had she never found Paiyu and her Pokemon. As Eli hugged her friend's leg, Paiyu hugged her back too, almost lifting her up. The green girl then looked up at the trainer, asking if she had any thoughts on her explanation of the dream.

"Well, it does make sense that they take place in Lavender Town: I had lived there ever... since... you know... that happened. But then again, what is that thing that keeps attacking me in the tower? It certainly doesn't look like a Marowak..." But just as Paiyu was beginning her explanation, she was suddenly silenced as her surroundings began to blur away, shifting into a space of purplish mist. Waves of soft multicolored light undulated overhead. The trainer heard a sound behind her, and turned to face... Mewtwo! She had thought he had left forever after the incident in the Ranger Base. Paiyu had no idea what to say, but collapsed to her knees; whether she did so out of reverence or simply being overwhelmed, she did not know. "M-M-Mewtwo! You're back!" she finally uttered. Then she suddenly remembered what Eli told her that night in the ranger base, why Mewtwo had to leave. "D-did you find -" she began, but the Genetic Pokemon shook his head, eyes closed in sorrow. "I am terribly sorry to tell you this. There were hundreds of innocent Pokemon down in that Rocket HQ - don't worry, I have freed them all - but out of them I could not find your Quilava." his telepathic voice echoed through Paiyu's head as tears began seeping out of her eyes. "Do not fret! Perhaps he may have escaped on his own. It will be a long search, but I assure you that I will find him. As for what is going on right now -" the Psychic-type paused, as if he had forgotten what he was going to say. The girl looked on, waiting. Finally the Legendary continued, "You two have done well. Eli Wolftree has left behind the regret from her decision with me, and is now much happier because of your efforts. Together, no rain clouds will bring you down." Mewtwo's words seemed to dry the trainer's tears and make her eyes sparkle once again. "I shall return you to the real world now. I may have kept you here for too long, but there seem to be rather important things going on there. Good-bye." As he spoke that last word without moving his mouth, the colored mist around them began to fade away, morphing into snow and pavement.

Immediately after returning to reality, Paiyu felt something pulling at the hem of her shirt. Looking down, she saw... nothing. It must have been Eli, who was now further away, talking to Jack. The trainer waited until her friends finished their conversation, only for Eli to ask, once again, why she hadn't noticed the green girl. "Sorry... I can explain later. Where should we go now?"

Eli tried desperately tugging at Paiyu's shirt to get her attention multiple times, but all her friend did was stare off into space. Eventually, the green girl just gave up. That's so weird! She pondered. Normally, Paiyu would pay attention to me when I talk to her, but she's just stuck in a daze! Why the heck isn't she noticing me!? But the more Eli thought about it, maybe her words were coming out as squeaks instead, and secretly, she could be becoming more Peridot-like the longer she stays in her new tiny body. No... She realized. That can't be possible! I don't want to end up being less human than before! Although she promised not to cry, she couldn't hold it in anymore as tears started flowing from her eyes. "Paiyu!" She yelped. "Can you still hear me!? I don't want to end up only speaking in squeaks and becoming-"

Thankfully, it wasn't the young trainer's inability to hear Eli's plea of help, but her staring up in awe as a familiar Zapdos emerged from the thunderous clouds. The green girl looked up as well while trying to finish her sentence by ending it off with a confused, "less... human?" The Zapdos dropped down majestically onto the ground and a familiar trainer hopped off of it as he returned his flying Pokemon into it's Pokeball. After he greeted himself with a "Long time no see," Eli immediately ran up to Jack and gave him a big hug. "Jack!" She squealed in happiness. "Oh, I'm so glad to see you again!" After giving her friend a warm embrace, she wiped away her happy tears while staring up at the ace trainer and asked, "Where did you run off to while we were talking to some new buddies?"

As Eli and Paiyu trudged off to the stores, they heard a thunderclap and the yellow wing of Zapdos swoop down with Jack on its back. "Zaaaap!" it cried as Jack slid down and said, "Zapdos, return!" The Electric Pokémon collapsed into a beam of red light and went straight into the Pokéball. "Long time no see,'' he said.

"Alright, then!" she gleefully squeaked. "I'll go ask Paiyu about it if that's okay with you!" But before she could let her best friend know of Grey's presense, Eli noticed the sun was going down, and the girls could only have a few hours to find some stores to go into. Aw, crud! She thought in panic to herself as sweat poured down her face. I wanted to go to some stores today, but we only have a few hours to do so! What am I to do!? I can't leave Grey in the dust! But the more she thought about it, maybe they could meet up later tomorrow. But what if she were to forget? After a while of pondering, Eli got out her notebook and wrote her phone number in it with a red pen from her pen pocket. She ripped the page out and put everything back to tell her new friend the news. "Hey Grey," she told her newfound fox-cat friend. "It's kinda getting late and we need to go to a few stores, so if you ever want to contact me, here's my phone number." She then handed the piece of paper to the strange fox-cat and hastily squeaked, "I'll see you tomorrow, if I can!" She stumbled over to Paiyu, trying to be careful not to slip on the ice, and tugged at her friend's shirt with her tiny sleeve-cloaked hands. "Paiyu," she impatiently grumbled to her friend. "I know you want to show off your Pokemon to this guy, but it's getting a little late, and we haven't visited any stores yet! Come on! We're burning daylight!"

"Hmm," Eli pondered. "If your memory's that clod- erm, excuse me, cloudy, then I should try to invent some kind of super safe memory machine to find out the origin of your fox-cat transformation, if you are willing to participate in it's experimentation." A few seconds later, the small green Peridot professor pulled out her handy dandy notebook from one of her oversized labcoat pockets to write down the idea on a list of other possible inventions she could create. "There," she exclaimed with her squeaky voice. "Now it's on my unofficial 'List of Inventions that Could Be a Reality, But Aren't Because I Can't Control My Dumb Stupid Peridot Instincts That Can Easily Screw Up a Project in 5 Seconds.' No joke! These instincts are so bad that just one simple uncontrollable squeak can ruin a project forever." She then stuffed the notebook back into her oversized labcoat pocket and glanced at the fox-cat girl. "Hey Grey," Eli squeaked. "If you've got nothing better to do, please feel free to join my best friend, Paiyu, on this epic adventure of ours! Trust me, there will always be room for more friends like you."

Before Grey went up to pet the disguise Pokemon, she told Eli that this was the first time she had ever seen or met a Mimikyu before. "Oh," Eli replied. "Okay then. If that's the case, this will be a great experience for you!" The fox cat creature reached her hand out to pet Eli's Mimikyu, gently stroking it back and forth to make sure it's costume didn't break. In response, it purred happily at the fact another person besides Eli is actually giving it love and attention. As she was petting the disguise Pokemon, however, Grey asked the green girl why Mimikyus had to wear a costume all the time, wondering if it's because they're sensitive about something. From that comment, Eli started to blush in teal, because she had the same problem as Mimikyu did. She looked down at her partner Pokemon, making sure it was naively blissful before she could explain why, since this was quite personal to her as well. She took a deep breath and explained to the fox cat why this was the case. "Well," she squeaked. "In case you're wondering, Mimikyus are skilled in the arts and crafts department like we are, and they look for any materials, organic or not, to make their costumes with. But *sigh* the reason why Mimikyus wear these costumes is because underneath, they are so ugly that they could simply kill a person, or any living organism, just by merely glancing at it. It's the only way a Mimikyu can socialize in this society, and it feels sad and lonely because of it." Eli paused for a bit, taking a deep breath as Mimikyu sensed it's trainer's incoming sadness, but continued on anyways. "You see, I'm the only one who can glance underneath it's costume because I got turned into a gem creature, and now that I'm half rock myself, I don't die when glancing at it's true form. But the thing is, me and Mimikyu bonded because we had the same issue: being outcast and unloved all because we look different." All of a sudden, Eli tried to move Mimikyu to her left hand while she took her right hand and made it into a fist by her side as a stream of tears started to flow from her right eye. "I mean, I cannot help the fact that I look like this little ugly green monster! I try to stay happy and cheerful all the time like my old human self did, but for some reason, I just can't! I always reset myself back to square one, just because I'm some gem monster, even though I know in my heart, I'm not! Why is it that all the words in the world that are said to me only fix the problem by a small margin before it starts all over again!? I must... Stay... Happy... For... My friends..."

Feelings of anger and frustration start to build up in her mind as she grasps her right fist tighter and tighter. "Nyrough," She squeaked in rage. "This isn't like me! Why can't I just be the happy person I want to be for once!?" Eli suddenly did something she never thought she'd do: She turned herself around and punched her small green self in the face. From it's trainer's sudden breakdown, Eli's Mimikyu hopped from it's trainer's left hand, landing safely on the ground next to her. Doing this cracked the left end of her gem by only a teensy bit, but it's quite unoticable to the naked eye. Somehow, she noticed the miniscule piece of her gemstone fly right in front of her face as tears continued to well up in her eyes. "W-what have I done to myself?" She mumbled, her fists and head hanging down dejectedly. "I... I guess I can't get rid of these monstrous feelings no matter how hard I try." She had heard stories of gem creatures with cracked gemstones suddenly glitching their bodies out from the mistake, but as she was expecting this to happen to her, nothing seemed to change. Her body was still the same, even though most gem humanoids would glitch up instantaneously. The more she thought about it, Eli was actually more human than gem, and that maybe Mewtwo and Marshadow blessed her tiny body with more humanity than she thought. From this realization, the green girl began to smile and wipe her tears away, even after the physical abuse she pulled off on herself. Thanks, Mewtwo and Marshadow. She thought with pride. What will I ever do without you guys? From there, Eli glanced at Grey and squeaked to her like nothing happened, "Now that you know a little bit more about me and what Mimikyus are, I was wondering what you are like as well? How come you're a fox cat, anyways?"

The fox-cat was in bit of a daze for a moment from what Eli had just done, but quickly snapped out of it and said, “Oh, that.....well......it’s kind of a long story....and truth be told there are tidbits that I don’t remember, my memory isn’t
perfect....eheh....”

"I wonder.." Grey said while she pet the Peridot professor's Mimikyu. "How exactly do Mimikyus make their costumes? Why do they need them? Are they sensitive about something...?" Grey would pause for a moment and say "No offense to this cutie pie Mimikyu here.." as she continued petting the Mimikyu.

The strange fox-cat creature eventually responded to Eli, revealing herself as Grey. She explained to the green girl that she knew her not because she worked at the Aether Foundation with her, but because it turns out Eli's work was well-known despite getting turned into a Peridot. The small professor became shocked. How could this many people know and respect her work, despite infamously getting turned into a little green freak of nature? "Nya ha," She laughed as she scratched the back of her dorito-shaped hair, blushing green at the cheeks. "Who knew I'd become so well-known that I'd get recognized by any Jo-Schmo off the street!" A few seconds later, Grey introduced her partner Pokemon, Pignite, to Eli. It seemed pretty happy to meet her, jumping up and down to show it's excitement as it shouted "Pig-nite~!" Since it was a little shorter than the two trainers, Eli went up to pat it on it's fluffy velvet-like head with her currently-revealed right tiny green hand. "Aww," she giggled. "Who's a cute lil' Pignite? You are! You are!"

After befriending the fire pig Pokemon and covering her right hand with her oversized labcoat sleeve, Eli turned to Grey so that she could introduce her Pokemon. "If you haven't noticed this lil' guy on my shoulder, he's my partner Pokemon, Mimikyu. The reason why he looks more like me and not like a Pikachu is because he loves me and my appearance that much to make a costume out of it." The gem girl held out both her tiny labcoat sleeve-covered hands to let her Mimikyu crawl off her shoulder so that Grey could get a better view of it. As it traveled up Eli's arms, she giggled a bit at the response of it's little feet tickling her. Once Mimikyu went onto her tiny hands, the disguise Pokemon cried out, "Kyu~!" in sheer happiness, waiting patiently for Grey to pet it. "Come on," Eli squeaked. "Don't be shy! Mimikyu is super friendly and loves to be petted! Also, his favorite spot is the head part of his costume, but just be careful not to break it."
