Lindsey looked back and forth from Ozias to Helen in shock.
Laura flew over to Ozias. "Are you okay?!"
The Merge's face was going purple. "S-something... seems to be affecting my genes... No, w-wait... It's stopped affecting th-- Agh!"
"Well, there's finally some good news," Sophia shrugged.
Ozias got up, coughing. "I'm feeling a little ill... No matter, though. I'm gonna live. Besides, last time I checked, the only bits of me that were independently Keldeo were the bits on the shoulders, the sword, part of my hair, and my cardiovascular system."
Scorpion stared at the fallen Arceus merge for a few seconds before she ran over to Helen and used Cut on the collar, making sure not to hit Helen, trying to break the collar. Get that other person... talking through her... away!
"Wait, are you not Keldeo at all anymore? I thought breaking the sword would just revert you to the normal form since it stops you from using Secret Sword."
"Those would be our missing friends... I dunno about the Keldeo bit... I guess even the muta... mutagen I used was... was... wasn't... perfected..." Ozias patted his chest, "No cardiovascular system... I've got about 45... seconds left to... l-live. T-that's good... eh?"
"Oh yeah." He then looked quizzically at Maxwell. "What do I do when that runs out?"
"It will, though. It always does... I just need to stall it until I regenerate..."
"Yeah... four Pokémon would be fun..."
