Zack had a look of consternation on his face as they pulled into Boken International Port. There were so many uniformed individuals checking everyone and issuing them cards. He guessed they must be Boken police taking proactive steps to keep the hunt for the new pokemon under control, but there was a nagging feeling in the back of his mind that something fishy was going on.

The ship docked in a free zone and a couple of the uniformed personnel helped to tie them down. Zack grabbed his backpack and slung it over his shoulders, checked that he wasn't leaving anything, then made his way off the ship where he was greeted, rather sternly, by a uniformed man and woman. Up close he noticed that their uniforms, white, had an emblem patched on over the left breast; a golden sun. This was the only distinct feature of the form fitting uniforms.

"We need to inspect your pack and your pokemon." Said the woman.

Zack hesitated before slipping his backpack off and handing it to her. He then grasped his pokeball.

"Come on out Phantump."

Phantump appeared in front of them all. It looked around confusedly as the uniformed people scrutinized it. The male retrieved a device from his pouch and passed it over Phantump a few beeping noises. Apparently before the could get a reading, someone shouted Zack's name. This caused the two uniformed people to look up as well as for Phantump to move behind Zack's legs.

A woman in her early forties, long brunette hair held up in a tight bun and wearing a similar uniform as the one that the two who were searching Zack's bags, came over and cupped his face in her hands. Her uniform looked like it was two different uniforms spliced together. The left half was white with the golden sun emblem and the right half was  black with an emblem of a silver crescent moon. Her green eyes peered deeply into his own and he couldn't believe who's eyes they were.

"Aunt Varra?!"

The End
