An evil laugh echoed through the mechanical base. “I really must get rid of that echo.” The evil laugh continued. “Nobody in the world would have such evil genius as to create this diabolical plan! Nobody but the the great Dr. Eggman!”
Orbot and Cubot watched Eggman monologue. “Back in another Odemon, I see,” Orbot said.
“I thought we already took over the world with that dog,” Cubot said.
“Now!” Eggman said. “Start the machine!” He watched the machine as it powered on. “For years I’ve used small animals to power my robots; now I will use the power of cursed spirits!” He looked at the floppy doll inside the machine, and the doll glared back. Despite its smile, the Banette looked like it wanted to rip Eggman’s mustache off.
“Let’s get that energy out of there,” Eggman said. “Unzip that mouth!”
A claw lowered into the pod and grabbed at the Banette. The ghostly Pokemon floated away, but other claws held it down and unzipped its mouth. Ghouls of wailing energy flowed from the doll, shattering the claws, but the machine sucked the energy up and transferred it to another pod.
“Yes! Yes! I’ll finally destroy Sonic and his friends this time,” Eggman said. The second pod opened, and a doll fell to the floor.
“Ooh, creepy,” Cubot said.
The doll rose and floated in the air.
