[The press has been buzzing and it’s finally time: Indigo League Champion Lance is making his first public appearance since “Rocket Prom”. Wild rumors have been flying around, everything from “Lance is definitely DEAD” to “Well the Rockets replaced him with an evil robot/clone/Zoroark/Ditto/hologram and it’s being Kept From the public (™)”, but the haggard-looking man on the screen definitely LOOKS like a real live person who’s been hospitalized for two weeks. And, even with the big bandage on his head, still bears Lance’s quiet air of dignity. It’s the real deal, all right.]

[He offers a weary, if stressed, smile for the camera and lifts a hand to stop the audible clamor of the paparazzi just off-camera.]


Ah-hem. This is Champion Lance speaking. First of all… for those concerned, I am definitely not dead. Or a clone. I’ve been receiving the best medical care anyone could want and am well on the road to recovery. I’d like to personally thank the mobile staff of the Indigo Plateau and Viridian City Pokemon Centers for their hard work and immediate response to the emergency, both in administering aid to injured trainers as well as working to release the captive Pokemon back into their natural habitat.

So, with that out of the way....

Well, trainers, after the…events of last week, there are a few things that need to be said.

Firstly, we, the Elite Four, are all doing as well as can be expected, and will be open for challengers again in another week. It… goes without saying that none of us enjoy suffering defeat at the hands of wrongdoers, especially on such a public, visible scale. For those whose confidence in us has been shaken, rest assured that our fine police force is doing the best they can to track down those responsible for this and see that this kind of thing never happens again. If anything can be learned from this wicked act of greed and selfishness, it is that even the strong are not infallible, and that the criminals of Team Rocket are not to be underestimated. I urge us all to stay vigilant, train hard, and contact your local police station with any information that could lead to the prevention of further Rocket violence.

Secondly, on a less solemn note… we at the Indigo Pokemon League would like to extend a very special thanks to those brave trainers who fought their way through the Rockets’ base to rescue both us and the extraordinary Pokemon who was being held captive. In a time of crisis, you all showed your mettle and rose above and beyond all expectations. You all have our sincerest gratitude, and-- for your courage-- will shortly receive a token of our personal thanks via official Indigo League Dragonite mail.

[For a moment, it looks like he’s just about wrapped things up, but then, he hesitates before adding, with just as much dignity as before:]

And one last matter. There was one book which was not recovered after the attack, one that was more...personal. A photo book. If anyone has any information about it, I would appreciate if you would step forward.

That will be all for now. Thank you.

[He begins to step down, only for a large microphone to be shoved in his face.]

Lance, what kind of token will the trainers from the incident? What do you mean by ‘personal’?

[Lance looks kind of pained, but smiles as he pushes the microphone away as politely as possible.]

That’s classified.

So, OOCly, what does all this mean?


IT MEANS IT’S PRIZE TIME!! And not just from the Elite Four-- the newly-freed Nephilis is grateful too! The list of prizes for the event are as follows!
