With Team Rocket and Galactic as now partners, the doors were open to a number of things once thought to be impossible. With two teams, two sets of trainers and leaders over two regions meant they were stronger than a number of people.
But to Professor Namba of the Science Department of Team Rocket, being partners with Team Galactic meant he could see what the science department was like. So after a quick call to Charon and Sird, stating why he wanted to go, Namba was allowed to have a one day visit. He knew what he wanted to see, but he was anxious to see what else was available in the Galactic labs.
Entering the building, stroking his mustache, he scanned the hallway to see just where exactly he would go first.
Zubat… Golbat… Wurmple… Beautifly… Dustox…
Leslie traced her hand across the cold table on which her collars were displayed. She mentally counted off her products for each of the Galactic-owned species. There were at least two for each group. Some particularly troublesome Pokemon, such as Wurmple and its evolutions, had given Leslie and her team reason to produce more collars—each version tested until they found the ‘one’.
Glameow… Stunky… Bronzor… Croagunk…
"They are all accounted for."
A Porygon clicked by her side. It responded as best it could, so that the words Leslie had spoken did not dissolve into dead silence.
Her list of successful test subjects would grow soon. At least, that was her expectation. For now she waited for paperwork. This was only a matter of time.
Another sound caught her attention. Because it was not the familiar click of her only loyal Pokémon, Leslie was inclined to investigate. Moved by sheer curiosity, Leslie opened her door, and revealed to herself the hallway as usual, lined with doors to several other laboratories…
as well as a man whom she did not recognize. She stared at him, dead-eyed, an unnatural fuchsia cutting through the emptiness.
"Who are you?"
