Rayzen and his claydol pushed the entrance doors of the Eletron power plant to get outside. There was much needed fresh air and aid, or so he thought. The area was no longer crowded with officials, and although the trainer felt disappointed, he was also struck with distraught at the same time. He could no longer show evidence of what he saw in the building. Notwithstandingly, he also saw black soil with fumes surrounding them. He bent his body downwards to get a closer look, then crouched down and tried to grab the soil. His pokegear beeped several times quickly. That basically meant claydol was trying to warn him, "Don't touch it!" Indeed, it could be scorching or radioactive. He took a few steps backwards, and he observed the blackened ground from a distance. He could not believe that there was nobody around anymore. More than being suspicious, he was actually slightly displeased that his effort so far was for nothing.Ion Island
Rayzen: The first thing that pops into your mind is letting the authorities know just how wildly mistaken they are about this disaster's proportions. A handful of policemen is hardly enough to investigate a full-scale massacre at the archipelago's largest power plant. You have Smartphone record all the images of Camera 17, the one that best displays the magnitude of the situation, and hurry back to the entrance of Eletron Plant. As you return to the main hall with the three doors, something feels even more wrong - a strong smell of ash and smoke fills the room and seems to come from the outside...
The main gate remains wide open and you step back out of the building, but the scene before you is something you didn't expect. Not a single officer can be found in the vicinities! In fact, the only thing noteworthy is a massive patch of pitch-black soil, charred earth all around the Plant's entrance, as if a massive fire or huge bolt of lightning has just struck! The ground is mixed with still-fuming ash, and the silence is deafening - where there once was a huge commotion with policemen running around everywhere, now remains nothing but desolation... What the hell is going on?!
Something very wrong is happening in the Eletron Plant. You seem to be the only remaining Trainer around to investigate, but do you even want to take such a chance? Who's to say you don't end up exactly like everyone else you saw on the cameras? On the other hand, can you afford to turn back now, with the facility completely unguarded and most of Cascadia depending on its electricity? It's none of your responsibility after all, and you can easily find adventure elsewhere on the Island. Is this worth the risk?
The choice is now yours; will you return and explore the Power Plant, or leave the premises and head elsewhere?
"Let's give this one more try," Rayzen decided to go around the building to find the unseen officials. They might be lurking around nearby. The trainer and his claydol followed the fence at the outer boundary of the Eletron plant. "We will not enter the building, but we shall look around the garden," they looked inside the dumpster, behind trees, through air vents and even towards the rooftop. Also, while walking around before giving up, he checked the cards on his pokegear. He tested them - the radio, the map - and they seemed to be working, but there was one more card that needed testing. "Let's try calling Keith," he dialled Keith's number. He wondered if the missingno master had tried to call him earlier. Despite saying that, he was not entirely confident that the call would get through. He still thought that the remanent signal interference emanating from the faulty power plant nearby would cause glitchy white noise and disable some communication.
