Somewhere in Gateon Port
(Probably taking place concurrent to some events that will be posted later)
Silent's team is spread around fending off some Cipher peons who are trying to enter more Shadow Pokémon via a provisions ship. While most of his mons are battling around taking advantage of Sol landing them a surprise attack, a certain Lileep that under any rational and reasonable conditions should not be there... is there. Namely, anchored at the bottom of the ship and using Confuse Ray to induce the other mons around to attack the hull.
Ichtacya is battling outside, has a Peon pinned to the ground, after having cut his snagged Krookodile's hide to shreds, and is furiously trying to get information from him by shouting at his throat.
Ichtacya: <Where do I find your boss? Where did they take Maekrite? How many puppies have you kicked? WHY SHOULD I LET YOU LIVE!!!!>
Of course, it has not much more than an intimidation and peeing-in-their-pants effect because all the Cipher peon hears is:
Ichtacya: "Woof woof woof! WOOF WOOOF ROOOAARRRRR!!!!"
Sol meanwhile, deciding that such approach is obviously not going to work, goes for another route. She blasts a random Primepape with Confusion then leaps at him and pins him down.
Random Primeape: <...W-ww-what do you want? I will NOT you anything... I don't know anything...>
Sol: <You've been around... have memories...> -- and cat-stares at him -- <You do know... and you will tell me...>
…and proceeds to use an hypnotic stare on the Primeape
A moment later, a Shadow Lanturn can be seen submerging near the ship and suddenly the entire water acquires a Shadowy aura. Silent takes his cue and whistles to Lileep to get off, as a couple of Cipher peons try to make a grab of him. Dintel is slashing and tearing at some Houndour and Herdier to keep the other people at bay.
And in that moment...
The entire ship is shaken and tilted as water enters the lower levels. One of the Ciphers looks down and sees their own Lanturn has Shadow Rammed the ship...
"Dintel! Finish it off!"
The smaller Pokémon leaps closer to the edge and prepares to charge one of his Brick Breaks. A couple of Peons attempt to attack, only to be taken by surprise by the poison stings coming from Python, hidden somewhat in Silent's hair.
Dintel then appraaches the ship's stern and Brick Breaks it with great strength. A tremor shakes the entire ship that suddenly starts rolling to the broken side and the bow is elevated off the water.
The leaders among the peons see what is going on and are quick to sound the alarm.
Cipher Leader: "Rigth then... Abandon ship if you can!"
...and, of course, is the first to run away, while the rest of the people in the ship try to get out of there with their lives.
Silent recalls Dintel quickly and runs to the side of the ship, leaping to a small hard-light platform Sol has left there for him. From there and while the platform retracts to safe ground, Silent observe as the Cipher ship sinks. He looks around to see two other ships stationed there.
"Two to go. Ichtacya, Sol, keep their people from landing."
And the two Eeveelutions go ahead, ready with a Swords Dance and a Light Screen.
