In the Azutopia palace, Sonyeo was swimming around a bit. She wasn't in her mermaid form, since it wasn't time for her to change, yet. Suddenly, something explodes outside. "Wblat?" He swims outside to see some Pokemon coming in to attack... She heads to the beach outside of the city to look for her friends. She found Pippy and Zipper. "It's terrible! My home! It's... It's being attacked!!!" She said in a panic. "Alright... We'll help!" Zipper said, with the two following Sonyeo to the town.
The three went into the town. Pippy and Zipper recognized the Insurgency members. They swim to find one of the members: Wave Crasher, holding a rebreather to breathe from. His face was red, meaning he needed to breathe, so he reached for it, but Sonyeo pulled it away from him using her psychic abilities. "H.. Hey!!!" WC said, as he tried to get the rebreather... Zipper used Charge Beam, causing him to cough up a cloud of bubbles. He really needs air, now... Out of options, he swims for a nearby air pocket. Pippy cptured him before he managed to catch his breath. Sonyeo gave the rebreather to Pippy and Zipper to catch their breaths before swimming off to find the others.
They find Delta and began to fight. Zipper used Charge Beam, while Pippy used Drill Peck. Delta counters with Waterfall, hitting Pippy and causing her to lose some air. Zipper used Thunder Punch to defeat Delta. Night falls, allowing Sonyeo to turn into a mermaid, allowing her to breathe easily! Pippy's face turned red, however... She heads off with Zipper to find an air source. They find one, but it was blocked by Mercy. Zipper used Charge Beam, stunning her, but she still didn't move... Pippy and Sonyeo join in the attack, and defeats her, allowing Pippy to capture her. Zipper was stabbed by Stella before they could get a chance to breathe... Pippy swims to help him out, despite her low air supply... She and Sonyeo pull him out and bring him back to the air pocket to breathe. Pippy caught her breath, as well.
"Is everyone alright?" Zipper asked. "Yeah... that was close, though..." Pippy replied. "Um... Pippy? Zipper?" Sonyeo pointed to the palace to see... Menace. "I'll deal with him. Alone." Zipper said. "Are you sure?" Pippy asked. "I'm sure. You go help the survivors, alright?" Zipper dove in and swam to the palace, about to collapse. When he entered, he saw Menace. "Ah, if it isn't the little rodent from Sinnoh..." Menace said as he grabbed Zipper. Zipper counters with Charge Beam, weakening Menace severely, but Menace tightened his grip, causing Zipper to lose more air. Menace soon fainted, but Zipper couldn't get out... His fear of drowning suddenly sparked into him, causing him to panic... The palace breaks and falls all over the two, burying them...
Meanwhile, Pippy and Sonyeo were helping the others clean up the city from the attacks. Sonyeo's parents were helping, as well. The two saw the palace fall over the two, however... "Zipper!!!" Sonyeo and Pippy quickly swam to the palace to see the front of the palace that has collapsed... They swam around looking for Zipper in the rubble, who was wounded heavily and low on oxygen... He coughed out the rest of his air and began breathing water... He blacks out. Pippy was running low on air, as well, but they managed to find the unconscious Zipper, who's been unconscious for 3 mintues, at this point... They take him to the surface, Pippy's chest heaving when they made it out of the town... They revive him and get him to AQUA-16 via helicopter as an emergency.
Zipper wakes up in the infirmary. Cino was there, as well. "Ah, you're awake! I can't believe you're still alive after that..." She said. "I know... It was terrifying, too..." Zipper replied, remembering what happened before he blacked out... "The others are helping clean up the destruction at Azutopia. When I'm done treating you, you can help out, as well..." Cino said before helping him heal.
Zipper was eventually healed, and he heads off to Azutopia. He found the others there. "Zipper! You're OK!" Sonyeo said. "I assume you're here to help clean up? Here!" Pippy said, tossing Zipper a rebreather, before continuing to work on the rubble. Zipper works on the rubble once he finds a place to put the rebreather until he needed to breathe. After about 2 or 3 days of work, the town was cleaned up. Zipper relaxed on shore with Sonyeo... "That was a rough week..." Sonyeo said. "I know..." Zipper said, remembering what happened... The two hugged each other, again...
