Doctor Doom doesn't have Twitter for a reason, guys.
Andrew fought his way through several Magma grunts to get to the stairs, coming up to be attacked by three at once...who were all kind enough to attack him one at a time with a single Pokemon each. Besides the insane plans to either create more land or create more water, I'm beginning to think that Hoenn's criminal organizations are incredibly stupid. Andrew was more confident in his own operation (Shroomish Highs still selling pretty well, you know). Deeper within, he encountered Steven once more as the purple-haired man was accosted by two instead of one.
|Space, Space, wanna go to space! SPAAAAAAAAAAACE!!!!|
...okay, not really. They want to aim the rocket at Mt. Chimney to try and cause it to erupt, flooding Hoenn with liquid hot magma (so I probably should have found that clip, but bite me), thereby creating more land. Steven requested Andrew's help and, being the only person with a working brain cell in the entire plot, Andrew decided to get involved and save the day once more.
Admin's Maxie and Tabitha were taken down in a fierce battle, where Andrew narrowly avoided the loss of another team member. Maxie mused on his failings of being able to mind Groudon after he awoke, and failing to force the volcano to erupt with moon rocks back in Part 10. Finally, for a brief moment, some character other than Andrew had a moment of thought that maybe what they'd doing is completely insane! Huh!
Then, they left and Steven invited him to come visit his home right there on Mossdeep. Given that he's now roughly 3 to 1 in terms of going to houses where he ends up being put into lethal situations, Andrew decided to give it a go and head there. Steven was welcoming and gave him the Hidden Machine for Dive, which will allow Pokemon to...dive. With this new power, after teaching it to Leviathan, Andrew went out to go explore the wide world of Diving.
So, next time...well, we'll see what happens...
