Snow falls lightly on the streets of Pallet Town, but inside the third floor of the Fun Zone, throngs of people are enjoying themselves on the flashing lights of the dance floor and the neon colors and lights of the disco balls hanging from the room.
As the song "Sussudio" blares through the rainbow room, two of the people dancing on the floor--a black haired boy and a blond haired girl, are the most enthusiastic dancers present. "This is fun!" the girl giggles as she dances, lost in the pounding 80's beat.
"And that was 'Sussudio' here at your Cosmic Disco!" the male DJ announces as the song ends. "Thanks for coming to our Snowed in Shindig--it may be icy cold outside, but in here, we've got the hottest classic hits to keep you warm. I'm your host, DJ Vinozi."
"He's one of my favorite Cosmic Disco DJs, Serena, because of his sense of humor and intense joie de vivre." the boy explains.
"I hope that the DJs they hire for the one in Vaniville will b

The lights came up on Joanna again over a slower version of the Falco Dolan theme music. "Falco's been many things to me--teacher, mentor, companion, and most importantly, a friend." she explained. "But sometimes, his theories come way out of left field--like the idea that the pirates weren't really as tough as they appeared, and it was all an act. My first thought was he'd gone nuts, but he assured me there was a method to his madness as we arrived in the Book Nook's cafe to meet Officer Jenny that afternoon..."
She let that hang as the lights went down for a moment, then came up again on Professor Sycamore sipping a cup of coffee, Joanna doing research on a laptop, and the Officer Jenny fill in studying her case notes.
"Everyone's here...good." the Officer Jenny fill in smiled. "When I questioned the coin's last known owner, he told me he was reluctant to part with it. When I told him the buyer had connections to pirates, he assur

The day of Professor Sycamore's debut was actually fairly rainy, so I spent the day preparing the Pokemon for what to expect--when it gets dark, be quiet, use the potty before the show, it's okay and encouraged to laugh at the funny parts, and that sort of thing.
Luckily, the rain had cleared out by the time night fell and I met the others in line at the Theater Lumiere. "I wonder what kind of play we'll be seeing..." Callum mused.
"I hope it's a musical with dancing!" Tierno grinned. "That's one reason why I wanted to learn to dance--cause I loved the smooth moves of dancers in musicals!"
"Well, growing up, I was sick a lot, so we didn't really get to go anywhere that often--so the theater was one of the very few places I got to go to." Trevor explained. "Adventures in exotic lands with elaborate costumes and puppets were my favorites."
"Maybe it's a melodrama!" Shauna interjected. "Beautiful heroines, dastardly bad guys, dashing heroes,

"Let's see...what am I gonna call you, little guy?" I cooed to my new Squirtle as I stepped into the elevator.
[I wanna be named something powerful and strong, like the Blastoise I'll be one day!] he smiled
"How about....Kaitou?" I suggested.
[A fitting choice!] Erin cried.
It suits him very nicely---the word "kai" can mean "sea" in Japanese. Zelda explained.
[I love it too!] Kaitou cried before the elevator doors opened on the first floor, where he reared back at a man with red hair resembling a male Pyroar's mane speaking to an assistant. [Who's this guy?]
Erin shuddered as a sky blue aura formed around her. [I dun't know, but I have a bad feelin' about him...]
About then, Pyroar-Man noticed us, and smiled at us, but that didn't make Erin's aura disappear. "Oh hello...you must be one of the five the good professor asked to help unravel the Mega Evolution conundrum...my name is Lysandre, tinker, scientist, and inventor of many product
