My fic borrows quite heavily from the Gen 1 game plot and I'm almost to the part where the main characters retake Silph Co. from the control of Team Rocket. Now, my Silph Co. does a little bit more than just manufacture Pokemon related items. In the words of one of my characters: "We’re talking about the guys who invented the Poké Ball, which kind of changed the whole way we understand space and matter." So I'm imagining they'll have some pretty cool sci-fi tech in their HQ. My question for you is what kind of stuff do you think you would find in such an advanced company's R&D department?
I'm imagining a scene akin to the Department of Mysteries in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The heroes are either running away from or chasing after bad guys and as they do, they run through various doors. Behind each door is some weird tech that could hinder them, help them, or not affect them at all. Regardless, they probably can't explain whatever it is they come across. I've got a few ideas already, but the only one I'm definitely going to use at this point is my own version of the good old teleportation panels from the games. What do you think?
