South east Lavender town, (near city hall just outside of cave)
With Vex and Munchlax leading the way, the party quickly navigates through the cave that seperated City hall from the rest of the zoo. "I would not worry about those pokemon that we saw earlier, Treeckos are known to be pretty smart and Absols are used to handling dangerous situations. I think that its safe to assume that they probably found other ways to escape from the zombies.
" Topaz reaches the spot where he had hid the injured bat keeper in the bushes previously while Vex and Munchlax go ahead and look for good ways to get out of town.
The wounded city employee points to two strange lumps in the nearby brush and he says that 2 people fell from the sky. Topaz goes to look and finds the people. They are still alive but just barely, judging by the uniforms they belong to the Kanto Special forces. Topaz shakes his head, the special forces are supposed to be made up of elite pokemon trainers but these amatuers had gone and made the rookie mistake of underestimating the zombies. They had most likely tried to fly in on pokemon thinking that it would be safe but were attacked by flying zombies and thus had fallen down hundreds of feet and sustained the severe injuries. Carrying the 2 special forces men and the third guy was going to slow them down but Topaz was not planning to leave anyone behind.
Jhonny flexs his muscles, "Leave this to my pokemon!" He brings out Machoke and Hariyama who quickly scoop up the injured humans. (with Machoke carrying 2 of them on his shoulders) Vex and Munchlax had found a bridge but it did not look very safe. "Lets not take any chances and head back through the Food court.
" Topaz suggests.
Backtracking through the center of town proves to be fairly easy because it appears that many of the zombies are concentrated elsewhere. It is not long before the group reaches the northern ticket booths where this whole thing started for Topaz. Not wasting any time, they move past the destroyed and deserted area and proceed to the parking lot and keep going all the way to the nearest roadway.
As luck would have it, tourists are still arriving by bus to the zoo! (word of the zombies was probably being surpressed to prevent a panic) Topaz waves one down and alerts everyone on the bus to not get off. A couple of thrill seekers leave the vehicle anyway but that is their business. With Topaz and the injured survivors onboard, the bus pulls away from the Lavender town zombie zoo.
The mystery of who was behind this mess is still unsolved but at least Topaz and the others had managed to get out of town with their lives and brains intact. He would hand the key card over to the Elite 4 and hopefully they would be able to catch the person or group responsible for the chaos. Topaz takes one last look at the zoo as fire and smoke rise in the distance...
