Lenneth and Laharl stroll through the seemingly abandoned, darkly lit parking lot. "That's the last time I go shopping with you at the Department Store..." Laharl says struggling with Lenneth's multiple shopping bags overflowing with Potions, Poke Balls and accessories. "Oh be quiet, you know this benifits both of us, right?" Lenneth says then giggles as she watches Titania the Budew waddle behind the two, trying to keep up. "Wait- What's happening over there? It looks like a Pokemon battle!" The two rush over to the two quarreling trainers. Perhaps one cut another off, maybe one bought the last Super Potion. Or maybe they're just itching for a fight... Lenneth shouts to the one in the "I <3 Blaziken" shirt. "What kind of battle are you two going to have?" The trainer responds: Laharl calls to the second trainer with the "Ice, Ice Baby" cap. "What conditions or clauses do you propose for the match?" They respond: Lenneth looks giddy and starts getting excited. "Ooh, ooh brother, can we? We've never been referees before!" Lenneth practically shouts while Laharl's Budew starts imitating her frantic excitement. "Well.. OK let me have a look at the opponent's teams..."

"Whatever, the turn order will go like this:" BMZ sends out Pokemon Glacier sends out Pokemon and actions BMZ posts actions We ref BMZ actions Glacier actions Ref rinse, repeat Laharl raises his hand in the air and swings it down to signal the battle's start. As the players bow to each other to show respect, Titania imitates and falls face-over-stubs in the process. "And so... Let the battle begin!!"
