“WHOO HOO, ALRIGHT! YOU JUST SAW THAT SMACKDOWN, LADIES AND GENTS! THE WINNERS OF THIS MATCH ARE THE ONE AND ONLY KNIGHT-AND-MAGE TWIN TEAM, ALYYYYYX AND ORIEEEEEEEEELLLLLL~!!”
Uproarious cheers and applause echoed powerfully through the stadium upon bearing witness to the siblings’ victory. Alyx put on a smirk and waved off the audience while wiping off a few beads of sweat, while Oriel raised a flattered and somewhat sheepish smile as she raised her hand to the crowd in gratitude. Once they had their fill of the spotlight and praise, the two of them made their way out of the ring and towards the exit back into the main lobby ring.
“Whew… great job out there sis, you never let me down,” thanked the Gallade as he lightly shoulder-hugged his Gardevoir sister.
“Ah, n-neither do you, brother…” smiled Oriel, pushing a lock of hair out of her face before clearing her throat. “W-well, I suppose we should rendezvous with Lixue and Masou, they’ll be expecting us out here soon while the next battle is underway… I’m feeling sort of famished, admittedly…”
“Heh, I know what ya mean, I never saw those Pokemon before. They really kept us on our toes… no pun intended,” chuckled Alyx with a roll of his eyes. “C'mon, let’s go meet up with them and see if we can get a bite to eat.”
Little do they know that they were followed outside upon completing the match, and it wasn’t a fan or admirer of any kind… rather, with the heavy scraping clawed footsteps, and the metallic rattling of armor resounding firmly with each step… t'was the Black Knight himself, Zarathos. The Champion called out to the two psychic fighters.
