Latios did an aerial backflip after Sela released a Heal Pulse to restore whatever damage had been done by Flutter’s Psychic; the large moth landed on my shoulder and made an apologetic noise. The two Pokemon had a brief discussion, after which Latios looked amused and Flutter relieved. I assumed the Eon Pokemon had forgiven Flutter for her somewhat rash attack; after all, she was a Poison Pokemon, so mental probing was something she had an instinctual dislike for.
Afterward, Latios noticed that Siless had withdrawn a camera and drew closer to inspect it. He then let out a soft trill, retreating a few feet before executing a few tight spins. After a moment he stopped, once more levitating vertically, head cocked in a quizzical expression. I chuckled a bit; either Latios was simply humoring us, or he was striking a pose. Either way, he didn’t seem to mind the idea of being photographed, and indeed was staying in one spot as if to make it easier to take a clear picture.
At that moment I noticed a small furry creature trundling through the grass under Latios. I frowned and squinted a bit, but was unable to make out what the creature was. After a second it paused, and for the briefest instant an ebony head flashed out of the long grass. It vanished in the next moment, but I’d gotten enough of a look to see what it was.
A Zorua was moving through the grass, most likely trying to avoid being noticed by the group around it. Judging from how stealthy it was being, it was most likely a juvenile that was going off on its own to establish its own territory. It was old enough to fend for itself and probably hold an Illusion fairly well, but still young enough to where a solid Illusion took too much energy to hold long enough for it to be useful.
The only problem with trying to be sneaky was the grass was obscuring its view, so it had to keep peeking over the grass to see exactly where it was going. It didn’t seem to realize I’d spotted it; I shot Siless a look, not sure if he’d seen it or not as its head popped into view, then ducked back down a split moment later. I wouldn’t distract him from Latios unless Zorua was in danger of getting away; for now it was relatively easy to keep track of the parting grass.
