He was on the hunt for that purple Haired man. He still had bandages all over him from last time. However he was determined to kill him this time. For one reason or another he heard that Spade would be here. His adrenaline was already pumping him full of energy. He could piratically see Spade as he dies, But first he had to find him. He walked steadily from that point on. [/scrolly]

He had left His sister behind with His absol and Khangaskhan. they had somewhere to sleep so he wasn't worried. He had seen a man with white hair and a red coat. The odds of it being the man who killed his parent's is to good to pass up. About 50ft from the stadium he landed. "Thanks buddy." He said before returning his salamence. The he walked to the big stadium to go and find the man. [/scrolly]
Logan sighed a bit as he walked into the Amphitheater following BJ Spade who was walking a tad ahead of him despite the fact that he was on crutches. "BJ don't walk so fast. You know what the doctor said," the orange haired man stated before pulling some gum from his pocket and popping it in his mouth. Smacking down on it, he mentally sighed as he watched BJ only speed up.
The determined Black Jack Spade was not going to take his injuries lying down for long. As soon as the doctors had released him from the hospital yet again and after Logan had paid them under the table to keep him a secret, Jack had been on his feet again and insisting to work. Whether this was because of his own spirit or the mind of third was truly debatable in his mind, yet of course Logan who knew nothing of these voices in the back of the man's head simply assumed it was just Jack being a stubborn ass like he sometimes was. "I'm fine, Catty," Jack called stopping and looking back a moment as he watched Logan follow up.
"Will you stop calling me that," Logan sighed a bit irritated but for some reason unable to completely direct all of said irritation towards BJ. The purple haired man simply laughed to himself and shook his head chuckling outwards.
"How about I call you King of Diamonds instead?" Jack started only to receive a suddenly sharp look from Logan. Half laughing before rubbing the back of his neck, Jack sighed. "Not fun times for ya?" he started, yet Logan said nothing causing BJ to sigh in turn. After a moment, Jack looked forwards again and started to move on his crutches again.
"The doctors ordered you in a wheel chair you know," Logan stated aloud, yet Jack chuckled again and said nothing. Logan just frowned deeply to himself and dropped the subject for now. "So ... why did we come here again?"
BJ found himself grinning a bit. Third growled deep in the back of his mind and posed the exact same question rather quickly. BJ just rolled his eyes slowly and sighed. "I didn't want to sit at a desk all day and what not... you know that, and don't say that's not what you were going to try and get me to do," Jack stated sharply. Logan simply sighed back at this and rubbed the back of his neck. Indeed, Jack shouldn't have been in the field and working with all his injuries, so desk duty would probably be for the best but then Jack's oride was just.....
"Fine," was all the orange haired man said which only seemed to incite a laugh from the purple haired man as a direct result. Little did either of them really know that there was yet another hunter in the area. Neither one had told any of the crew where they were going, yet it probably wouldn't have been too hard to track them or assume where they were going seeing as the entire area around the amphitheater was nothing but sand. Indeed, both had assumed it would actually be safer there with no other people around. Well... they were rather wrong, it seemed.
Far off, a blonde haired woman could be seen flying towards the Amphitheater riding what appeared to be a giant rock pokemon. Indeed, it was her Aerodactyl who was still very displeased with the idea of Teme riding her but unable to truly find a way around it that wouldn't involve either getting yelled at or facing pain. A good few yards away from the large coliseum, Teme stopped and got off. Her eyes moved sharply, and sure enough, she caught sight of what appeared to be her target: a certain bounty named Mike. For all she was worth, Teme never put two and two together that that particular man might have been the one she had run into a few weeks prior, and instead, she was simply on the hunt. Moving slowly, she debated whether or not to follow him and just attack when the time was right or attack then and there. Oddly enough, the smarter of the two choices won out, and she carefully began to follow the man not getting close enough to actually see who it was yet but still pretty damn close.
Mike walked into the stadium and saw two people one of purple hair and one of orange. He grinned evilly and glared at them. "Die." was all he said as drew his twin eagles and aimed them down. Aiming for there torso's he blasted them. He then screamed "Die bastards die!" That and the sound of gunfire could be heard.
Hope off in the distance entered the stadium at another entrance when he heard the gunfire. He looked across the stadium and saw a white haired man in red firing at what seemed to be two men. That is him I can't let him kill again. He looked upwards to notice a Pokemon behind hind mike. He didn't know if it was wild or not though. He ran in the giant circle to get to mike faster then anything it would take him 2 minutes at best. After all it was a big stadium. he had to stop him failure isn't an option.
Mike seeing hope recognized him. Shit he though to himself. how did he find me? did he follow me from town? No matter I will kill him either way. Mike after finishing his clips ran up the steps and reloaded the gun.
Jack hadn't had time to move when the man suddenly appeared and aimed the gun. However, thankfully Logan was faster and managed to seize BJ by the arm and pulled him quickly away just barely avoiding the bullets that were shot at him. "One of your friends?" Logan called. Jack didn't answer but did recognize the white haired. Aw hell. One crutch hit the ground as Jack dropped it in the motion with Logan.
Teme's eyes narrowed as she caught sight of her target shooting other people. She hadn't had time to recognize that it was the Mad Hatter and instead was assuming it was someone else entirely. Holding up her gun, Teme aimed it at Mike's back shoulder and pulled the trigger without even bothering to give a hint that she was there. Shoot first and ask questions later, damn it.
In another moment, the sound of a gun going off caused Jack's haed to turn, and as he caught sight of Teme, he swore hard. Just what he needed. Two bounty hunters trying to kill him on his day off. Logan was too busy dragging Jack around to behind a pillar where they at least had some cover to have noticed Teme yet. However, he did catch sight of someone else at the last minute and found himself a tad confused. Was this an --- an ambush? Shit. Neither he nor Jack had the bullet power to fight their way out if it was indeed an ambush.
Mike had taken a bullet to the shoulder. He grunted because hie stab wound was still there. The blood began to seep through the bandages. He stopped and looked behind him directly at the Pokemon. Shit I don't have time for this. He thought as he squinted the glare fro the sun prevented him from making out the person on the areodactle's back.
Hope ran up a flight of stairs until he cold see the two men. He ran up behind the same pillar and stopped next to the orange haired one. Panting and out of breathe he asked them if they were all right. "It seems that we have a common enemy and the enemy of my enemy is my friend." Hope drew his sword and threw it over his shoulder. "Ill attack him you two run that's our best bet." he said trying to befriend them.
Teme smirked when the bullet made contact. Good, now here was some fun. "Your head is mine!" she called out still not recognizing the man despite seeing his hair and at least general features now. Jumping down rather quickly, Teme landed a good few feet away from Mike turning both her guns on him only to then fully stop and blink. This guy? "Wait what......?" was finally what came from Teme's mouth. The Aerodactyl, in turn, simply flew overhead.
Logan looked at Hope and had been about to punch him as hard as he could when Hope suddenly blurted out his intentions. "Say what?" Jack asked causing Logan to stop yet again from what he had been about to say. "Who are you?" Jack continued. Hell this just keeps getting more and more confusing Ripper growled, and Third had to sigh and agree with him. Cas was whimpering like a fool, and there was simply too many other voices talking at once for Jack to be able to tell what was being said.
"And now do we know you're not one of 'em after me and him?" Logan suddenly barked back rather quickly. Their best bet was to get away, but why was this guy after the other one? It didn't make sense to Logan at that particular moment, yet then again, he was also trying to figure out too many other things at once.
Mike pointed his gun's at the female before realizing it was her. "Teme?" was all Mike could say. It was the women who not two weeks ago he had Confrontation with. They had a good time which then brought a look of confusion on his face. "Why the hell are you shooting me?" he asked as if he had been betrayed.
Hope looked at the purple haired man and simply said "I'm a guy who was wronged by that man that's all you need to know." turning to the orange haired man he said "If I was out to get you I would have attacked by now. Just run ok." Hope then ran around the pillar to face Mike's back. "You die here."
Mike turned to face the boy and simply said "Fuck off kid! I'm working. be lucky I spared your life. Teme around this pillar is Black jack Spade I'm here to kill him are you in? " Mike asked her as sort of an offering to team up this one time. He turned to face Hope. He put away his guns and took the knight sword from the strap on his back.
Hope looked at him and said "You will pay for your sins." Mike smirked and said "Bring it on kid."
Logan bit his lip before finally looking at Jack. Fine, they'd make a break for it. Without even asking Jack, Logan suddenly seized the purple haired man by the arm and started dragging him off again. The sound of yet another crutch hitting the floor echoed out into the Amphitheater to anyone who had possibly been listening for it.
Now Teme was more confused than she had just been when Mike confirmed that it was in fact him. "You're the Mike on the wanted poster?" she barked and was about to say more when a kid with blue hair stepped in. What the.... Now who was this kid? After a moment, Teme suddenly charged straight downwards and made to kick Hope. "Back off kid I'm workin'!" she yelled. "The Mad Hatter's bounty is higher than anyone else's at the moment. Mike, I'm in," was all she stated.
Mike smirked as the kid got knocked down the stairs. he jumped over the rolling body. then he ran to meet teme "Spade is heading that way from the looks of things you take the lead I'll follow behind you." Mike saw this plan as if she missed him with a bullet he could hit him. Also if That annoying kid were to catch up he could stop him.
Hope rolled to the base of the stairs. The wind had be knocked from his lungs he coughed as he began to stand up. He exerted way to much energy. He used his sword as a cane to hold him up. grunting to get to his feet. He looked up to see the women team up with the lunatic. "If I have to get through her too so be it." Hope grunted.
Teme just smirked a bit and nodded her head. She'd figure out why the heck Mike had a bounty on himself later. For now, she was after a certain Hatter. Running through the area rather quickly, she finally caught sight of Jack all but piggybacking on Logan as the orange haired man walked rather quickly through the Amphitheater and away. "Freeze!" was the order given as Teme held her gun up. Instead of doing such, Logan instead spead up and made a run for it rather quickly. Jack, meanwhile, kept looking back feeling Third ordering him to get out of there while Ripper hissed and issued out threats at the two assailants. Pulling the gun that he had on him, Jack fired and managed to shoot Teme grazing her arm a bit and causing the blonde haired woman to stop and cringe. However, Teme was far from giving up and continued her pursuit firing off bullets as she went. "So what'd ya do by the way?" Teme asked not looking back but assuming Mike was there.
As Teme stopped and blood came out of her Mike fired his gun at Spade. Mike continued to run following Teme when he heard the question. He thought a minute as to why he had the bounty it was a long time ago. "Few years back I killed a couple of knights. That's the short version of it I'll tell you the rest later." Mike hopped up to the isle above where he was running. this gave him the high ground advantage. He then shot 3 more bullets.
Hope got to his feet and groaned before he ran up the steps and made a right. He was chasing after mike. He could let him get away he was to close. Hope ran as fast as he could , but couldn't catch up to the man dressed in red.
Jack managed to dodge one of the bullets, yet as the rain of them began, he cringed already bracing him for some sort of impact. Logan, however, was not going to allow himself to get shot and simply continued to run as fast as he possibly could. One of the bullets grazed the side of the orange haired man's face, and for a moment, he cringed. "Move Lo!" Jack called. Logan didn't need to be told twice and was running once again.
Teme raised her eyebrow. Oh jeeze, he shot a knight or something? Resisting the urge to roll her eyes, Teme just kept moving after the Mad Hatter. However, as her eye moved back, Teme caught sight of Hope and found herself skidding to a stop. "Keep going!" was the roder before the blonde whipped around and aimed her guns at Hope. "Get the hell out of here kid!" Teme growled.
Mike normally would of protested but he was already far ahead of her. Time was of the essence so he continued to run after the duo. He fired a few more bullets leaving his gun's empty. He aimed for the running mans legs. If he took him out this job was as good as done.
Hope stopped dead in his tracks as he stared down the gun. He grunted and had the look of annoyance on his face. "I'm not after you I want the man i red he's my target! I'm asking you to please step aside." Hope didn't want to fight her , but if it came o it he would.
Logan was shot in the back of his right calf and suddenly went falling forwards cringing in pain. Black Jack Spade went with him and hit the ground a second later. Squirming to force himself up, Logan seized the collar of Jack's shirt and started to drag himself and the purple haired man away as fast as he could. Jack made no protest to this but kept looking back at Mike as his eyes slowly narrowed. FUCKING HELL I'LL KILL HIM! Ripper roared angrily.
Teme, meanwhile made something of a 'pft' sound. "He's a friend of mine, and you'd better get the hell out of here," was all she answered back with before pulling the trigger of her gun.
Mike jumped from the higher level don to the same one Logan and jack were on. He took about 30 seconds to reload his gun's and then continued to run after the two men. He aimed his guns one at jack and the other at his acompliance and began to fire. (I wont let him escape like I did last time) is all he thought.
Hope was getting madder by the second. "That man has committed a crime and I have to serve him justice or else no one will. Now step aside" Hope gripped his sword tight. Preparing to swing If he had to.

Another bullet was headed towards Logan, yet in a fit to protect the runner that was saving him, Jack raised and arm and took the bullet before cringing in pain. Logan was still moving as fast as he could damn well go, yet it was slower now.
Meanwhile, Teme's eyes narrowed, and with that, she aimed her gun full circle at Hope and pulled the trigger. It seemed talk time was over.
Mike continued to fire until both guns were empty. He put both gun's back in there holsters and continued to run. "You know what fuck it." was all he said before unleashing his shadow Metagross. He jumped n top of the Metagross. "Follow those guys" was the command. So the giant steel Pokemon chased after the two men.
Thinking quick hope moved to the left and the bullet hit him in his shoulder. while flinging his body he used the extra force to swing his sword at the blonde haired woman. "That man has sinned don't you care about that?!" Hope screamed.

Somewhere in the world, a nerd just started playing Benny Hill music. The chasing was getting more intense, and though the Metagross wasn't the fastest of pokemon, he was certainly moving fast enough. Logan continued to drag Jack who was cringing in pain from being shot several more times. I'll kill him I'll kill him I'll frickin' kill him! Ripper roared as Jack himself began to waver in and out of consciousness. His body was just to damaged already to take all this beatings. However, somewhere in his mind, BJ snapped. Forcing his feet downwards and causing Logan to stop in turn, Jack forced himself to stand and whipped out a pokeball. Throwing it out and releasing a Dusknoir and a Gengar, the purple haired man sucked in some air still partially leaning on his orange haired friend.
"Jack what are you...." Logan asked. However, BJ just shook his head as blood started to drip and pool on the floor. Holl was silent but looked towards Shad. Both seemed to nod and charged forwards the Dusknoir using a Fire Punch while the Gengar used a Fire Punch of his own.
Teme was slashed straight from her right shoulder down to her opposite hip, and blood exploded as a result. Managing to keep herself from falling completely back, Teme stepped backwards and slowly brought a hand to his chest. "You'll pay for that," she hissed aiming the gun at Hope's chest and pulling the trigger.
"This should be fun." Mike began to laugh half demonically. He released his Riachu. Riachu use thunder, metagross hammer arm. The little rat jumped of metagross and unleashed a flurry of electricity. as the metagross smashed down a the duskinoir.
Hope got shot and propelled backwards.Blood dripping from his chest shoulder and now mouth. Upon landing on his foot he Lunged forward putting some stain on his ankle. He had the hilt at his chest and the tip at Teme as he made for a stab. "I need my retribution I have to avenge them! Ill be dammed if I let so bitch of his stop me!" Hope was stone cold serious now. Though he did not now if he could beat this woman.
The Fighting move of the Hammer Arm did literally nothing to either of the two Ghost types simply because of type match up. However, the Thunder did hit Shad pretty hard and caused the Haunter to grimace a little. "Fire Punch again," Ripper suddenly hissed out of Jack's mouth. Logan's eyes widened as Jack's voice changed ever so slightly. However, it wasn't a conflict in the mid at all. BJ had had it and was going along with Ripper. However, it was up to his body to keep everyone in his mind alive, and said body was failing pretty bad now. Both of the Ghost types did what they were asked.
Teme, meanwhile, was stabbed in the stomach, and her teal eyes widened large before the sword was pulled away. The sound of hand guns hitting the floor echoed in the area as the blond haired woman stepped back before fianlly hitting a wall and sliding down it. Blood gushed from her wound, and she was sure it had hit her inferior venacava. Shit shit shit shit shit.
