A bit deeper into the cave however, and Connor hears the sound of metal... hitting each other? "Hm, what's that sound? Guys do you hear th--Buh?!" Connor stops as he and the others were suddenly hit by a pack of Zubat who were flying away to the entrance. The surprise attack had Connor fall back on his butt as his camera's own flash suddenly turned off, Gaspard falling from his shoulder, and Foster momentarily stopping his Flash move. "Gah... what was that all a-bout?! Is eve-ry-one al-right?" Foster said as he resumed to use Flash. Connor still felt sore from dropping on his butt as he could hear Keith making a roll call. Connor notices while turning on his camera's flash again as he then heard Keith ask a question, "Hey, where's Sakura?" Marion is understandably concerned for her safety, "Did the Zubat take her? Oh, Giratina..." "Owowow... huh?" Connor stops as he noticed a source of light, "Guys, there's light further ahead! Seems to be moving away though..." Connor's eyes widen as he realized what he just said and got up immediately, with Gaspard climbing back up to his shoulder. Marion and Keith also caught on to what Connor said and pointed out as they realized who was the source of the faraway light. The trio chased after her.
They come to a stop as they see the path split into four different tunnels. Keith then tells Marion to use Supersonic to help track the little Nincada while he sends out his own Ivysaur to leave a trace of String Shot so they could backtrack if necessary. Keith and Marion also agreed that splitting up was not a good idea, "Yeah, we shouldn't split up. Besides, we're one head too short to be splitting up into four and it's not a good idea to have a group of our own Pokemon go through the fourth tunnel either." he said to them, "Still... that metallic sound bothers me... what was that?" Connor mutters. He then sends out Humphrey, his shiny Roggenrola. He knew that Roggenrolas tend to walk towards the direction of the source of the noise, at least that's what the Pokedex told him. Plus, he had a gut feeling that Sakura's headed for the source of the noise as well. "Humphrey, can you listen for any sound of metal clashing together and point towards it? Don't walk further in the tunnels, just point. Something tells me that Sakura's disappearance and that noise from earlier are connected, but I just have to be sure..." he told the Roggenrola. Humphrey nodded.
