cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (WHO LEFT THE DOOR OPEN AGAIN?)
[Well, it's that time of year again, the time where anything and everything goes absolutely crazy and nothing makes sense.

So Cobra's got his island on full alert because this is probably the most likely time for something chaotic and ridiculous to happen. He's already told his NPC goons to be on their guard and to get ready to repel any invaders, but who knows how well that'll work since it's fourth wall and they'll get warped in and out or their Pokemon will suddenly be Magikarps with only Splash or something else will happen.

Cobra himself is going to barricade himself inside the house he uses as a command center which is a terrible idea because once again this is fourth wall and someone could just warp or glitch in there or Godzilla could show up and step on it, and...

And basically, there's no way this isn't a ridiculous disaster in the making, and it's probably for the best that fourth wall damage doesn't stick around long term.

Because odds are, there's going to be a lot of that.]

{OOC: Please feel free to attack and make a mess of his island. I'll be more than happy to throw Cobra and other things your way in return.}
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (AND THEN I TOOK OVER ENGLAND)
[Oh hey everyone. Today's video displays a Pokemon Center with some weird nasty purple fog pooling around the floor. And Cobra standing in front of the counter, acting like he owns the place. Which he apparently now does. But he'll get to that in a minute.]

When we last sssspoke, I promised that everything I ssssaid last time still applied. And for thossse of you incapable of remembering, that included a vow to take the world. Sssince then, one idiot has chosen to try and sssteal my thunder, but I don't care.

[Which is why he was bugging Blake about. Because that's totally how you show you don't care, right?]

And the reason I don't care is because I have done far more than ssstand on a soap box and proclaim myself leader. I have done far more than anyone here has every done! Because you sssee, as of thisss moment, this Pokemon Center, and the island it is built on, belongs to me.

[He'll let that sink in for a moment.]

And I know sssssome of you no doubt will choose to believe otherwise. Your missstake. And ssssome of you may believe and choose to try and take what is now mine. That will also be your missstake.

[Because he's already come close to sinking one ferry earlier today, he won't hesitate to try again.]

To those of you with ssssome sense, I would hope that you can sssee the opportunity created today. For thisss is the first ssstep and the firssst part of what will grow to become a gloriousssss Cobra Empire!

[And he's going to start laughing before cutting the feed.

{OOC: So here's the actual takeover post that goes with the information posted here!]
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (NOT AGAIN WHY DOES THISSS KEEP HAPPENING)
[Yep, it's Cobra again. But wait, don't touch that dial because today is actually the day he does stuff! Which might become obvious because when the video starts he seems to be...in the air, standing on some sort of metal thing. So yep, stuff's happening today.

Now, in theory, he should probably be preoccupied with the Rocket text that went out a couple days ago, but he's not postponing his plans just because the admins decided they want them all to do things. He's Cobra Commander, and he does things on his schedule, not anyone else's.

Unless of course they force him to stick to their schedule, but that's not the point today!]


I thought that this time...thissss time, you all might have actually understood what I was up to and had the ssssense to meet my demands. Obvioussssly, I was wrong.

[Wow, Cobra actually admitted he was wrong.]

So sssince no one seems to understand what a game changer my device is, allow me to provide the final demonstration of Project M.E.T.A.L.'s power!

[Cobra steps towards the edge of the platform and...that sure is the Cherrygrove Spa down there. Yup.]

Lock On!

[There's no visible effect or anything, but the Magnezones under the platform have locked on to their target.]

Fire!

[And suddenly six Zap Cannons rain down, all hitting the target and pretty much wrecking that poor spa. Nobody's getting any treatments there any time soon, that's for sure.]

I trust that you now underssstand the power I possess!

[He'll just back away from the edge now.]

But it's an underssstanding that has come far too late! Because you've failed to meet my demands, the ressst of Cherrygrove City can expect the sssame fate!

[From somewhere behind Cobra, there's a weird detaching noise followed by the sound of something falling and then um...impacting the ruins of the spa.]

What?!

[He'll just disconnect the feed there. No sense in showing the whole world what went wrong and ruining any villain cred he's just gained.]

{OOC: The log for the people wrecking the machine is here! Have fun guys!

And responses to this might be slow over the next couple of days due to my laptop needing repairs, but I'll try be around as much as I can!

And yes, the damage to the spa was approved by Alex and Sunny!}
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (MY LIFE'S STORY IN ONE SPEECH BUBBLE)
These crystals are far, far too dangerous to be left here where anyone can get use them.

[Cobra turns the camera away from Fuchsia City's crystal that he was focusing on and towards himself. His slightly charred self. Guess who's been trying to figure out how these things work via trial and error? And it's been mostly error. Yup, lots and lots of explosive errors.]

Therefore, I've taken it upon mysssself to personally see to it that they don't fall into the wrong hands! Whose hands are those? Pretty much anyone's hands that aren't mine!

[...that part probably wasn't a surprise to anyone. What might be a surprise to the viewer though is what Cobra pans away and up to what appears to be...quite a few Magnezones using their magnetic powers to levitate quite a few Steelixes above the crystal.

Amazing what one can do by pulling rank on some NPC Grunts and taking advantage of the general craziness.]


As you can see, I've put together enough firepower to easily take down thissss crystal! And once that's done, I'll move on to all the others! And then the remains will be gathered up and-

[Cobra's cut off as the first Steelix gets essentially launched into the crystal.]

No! Sssstop! Ssstop! I didn't give the order yet! Sssstop it!

[They're not stopping.]

I sssssaaid ssssstop!

[The feed ends there.

But for anyone in Fuchsia City, Cobra's still standing in front of the crystal, shrieking at the Pokemon to do as he says...and occasionally dodging chunks of crystal sent flying by the bombardment. This isn't even remotely how he wanted this to go. And yet somehow, this isn't exactly a new experience for him either.]
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (NOT AGAIN WHY DOES THISSS KEEP HAPPENING)
[Today was supposed to be the big day for Cobra. The day when everything went right. Certainly not the day where it rained on the morning on his attack, making it a pain to record video or take photos. And certainly not the day where his metal bird got shot out of the sky by Raichu. He was actually glad there wasn't any footage of that.

Really, it'd been a mixed bag at best. He'd done some damage, but retreat and recovery had been a complete disaster. Hopefully, the others did better.]


This morning the Vermilion City Gym was the target of a carefully planned aerial attack by Cobra forces. Let this be a reminder to you all that I can sssstrike anywhere at anytime. Anywhere! Without warning if I sssso choose!

[And not that he really feels like it, but there's some villainous laughter at the end of the public feed. Now to check in with the others.]

[Private Audio to Attack Volunteers]

By now your attacks should be underway, if not already finished. So I demand to know the results of them. Report in as ssssoon as you hear thissss message! And you better have succeeded!
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (YOU BORE ME)
[So Cobra Commander's on the Rocket frequency today. Which might seem strange given the whole not so accidental public outing followed by the publicly leaving Team Rocket. And after a brief moment of silence, Cobra's ready to start explaining things.]

No doubt ssssome of you are surprised to see me on thissss channel. I can hardly blame you given the last month or so. However, I ask that you please lisssten to what I have to say before calling this number or reporting it to our ssssuperiors. Yessss, our superiors. Contrary to what you may have seen me say, I've never left Team Rocket. Everything I've done has been part of a carefully created plan to benefit not just myssself but the organization as a whole.

[And yes, that's just the two videos, but hey, he put a lot of work into those.]

First, I appear to lose my standing in the organization. Then, I make it sssseem like I appropriated high tech weaponry the likes of which hasn't been sssseen in this world. Now for the next phase of my plan, I'll return sssaid weaponry to Team Rocket in exchange for immunity. Thussss, publicly seperating myself from Team Rocket and creating the notion that Team Rocket has access to weapons that no one else here does.

Which leads me to the ssssecond reason for thisss video. No one is going to believe these things work without a demonstration. And I happen to have a lissst of targets and a need for volunteers to ssstrike at said targets on a certain date. I will provide more detailssss once I know who is interested. Given the nature of my plans, information will unfortunately have to be compartmentalized and restricted for the time being.

{OOC: There are more details as well as OOC signups here!}

cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (NOT MY FACE MY BEAUTIFUL FASSSE)
[Today's video seems to be accidental in nature. The Gear's not near Cobra Commander, but he's visible in the shot, and doesn't seem to have any idea it's on. He's clearly yelling at someone, but whoever it is can't be seen in the frame.]

What do you mean it's missssing? I demand you check again! And keep checking until you find it! Do you have any idea what they'll do to me if they find out it's missing? Or any idea what I'll do to you? Because I guarantee that whatever Team Rocket does to me, I'll pay back to you tenfold!

[Yes, he apparently just outed himself as a Rocket to everyone watching the video. As if it wasn't already painfully obvious.]

Now go! Get out of here! And don't come back until you find it!

[Done with that, he turns around, notices the Pokegear, and just...stops, staring at it. If his expression were visible, he'd be looking horrified right now.]

What? How did this get here? Wraith, were you playing with my things again?

[And after picking up the Gear.]

This was recording? Sssso everyone saw....no! This is a complete disaster!

{OOC: So yeah, Cobra sure did out himself as a Rocket. And as to what's missing...it's nothing. There'll be an OOC post and another post later this month/early next month explaining more of what's going on, but basically he's up to no good again and trying to be sneakier about it. Keyword here is trying. And this was approved by both Sunny and Alex!}
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (NO ONE ARRESTS COBRA COMMANDER)
Thissss is impossible!

[What the video shows might be confusing to some since Cobra is somehow back in jail. And in complete disbelief over it. ]

Imposssssible! How? I demand an explanation for thisss!

[Not an explanation for how he got here so much as one that explains why he can’t get out. Not with his Pokémon, and not with the weird hairdryer thing laser pistol he’s waving in front of the camera. And last time he checked, the buildings here shouldn’t be blastproof.]

I demand to know who is responsible for thisss…thisss…thissss impossible reincarceration! Once I find you, I’ll have you shot for thisssss! Do you hear me? Shot!

[He hasn’t exactly figured out how he’s going to shoot someone through this glitched cell though.]

And ssssomeone get me out of here! Now! I don't care what else is going on! This should be your number one priority!
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (YOU BORE ME)
[Cobra’s on the Rocket frequency today, looking about the same as ever.]

Eight days. For eight days I was incarcerated and unable use thisss device without having some idiot guard watching over my shoulder. And a lot can happen in eight days. The entire balance of the world can change. Obviousssly, this is not the case, but still, I would like to know what if anything, was accomplished during those eight days.

[That would be Cobra’s way of asking why only one person bothered to break him out of jail and what everyone else was doing.]

Private Text to Frank Archer )

Private Text to Jeane )
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (Default)
[So instead of an audio tirade, there’s a short, simple text from Cobra Commander being sent out on the Rocket channel. After checking the PC this morning, he’s definitely not in the mood to talk to anyone right now.]

It seems that a number of Rockets are no longer with us. If any of you have recently received a Pokémon from one of them, please respond stating who it belonged to. I’m aware of at least four departures, and if there are more, it needs to be reported immediately.

[Now to try and not throw the PokéGear at something while he waits. Given that he’s already thrown an office chair, his helmet, and various papers around the room, there’s a good chance that the PokéGear’s next.]
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (WHAT DO YOU MEAN I DIDN'T PAY MY LEASE)
After several months of research, I have revised my list of targets. However, before I get into that, I would first like to pose a question to our sssscience team. How long is thissss-

[The Commander lifts up the side of his hood. Anyone expecting to see his face is probably going to be disappointed since all that’s exposed is a small portion of his cheek. This happens to be covered in black and purple splotches. He lets the camera linger on it for a moment before pulling his mask back down.]

Going to last? My powers disappeared a while ago, and these are still here! When are they going to go away? I want an answer! And before I get to thisss list, those of you already handling our various enemies need to report in with your progress! Or I may be forced to consider reassigning your targets to other members! Now then, here is the new list!

[The Pokegear is grabbed and turned towards a piece of paper lying on Cobra’s desk. It reads as follows:
The List ) ]

Study thisss list, gather information, and learn what we’re up against! Remember, knowing is half the battle! And the other half is crushing anyone who dares oppose us!
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (DON'T LET THEM GET AWAY!)
Private )

[Public Video]

[Cobra Commander has the camera pointing right at his faceplate. The background music today is that of Vermillion City. Like last time, he’s not worried about concealing his whereabouts today.]

I was told to wait until the chaos settled down, but as you all should know by now, I care little for opinions that aren’t my own! But I’m getting ahead of myself! You’ll see what I’m talking about soon enough!

Now then, as most of you should know by now, I was robbed recently! What you may not know is that I spent latter portion of last month tracking down and recovering what was stolen! And while I was out, I took the liberty of challenging two more of these Gym things!

[He’ll just move things around, so he can show off the Fog Badge and Storm Badge he picked up.]

But as some of you know, I’ve recently found a much more satisfying way to deal with these Gyms! Which brings me to the point of thissss video! Behold! My next target! The Vermillion City Gym!

[The next shot should look pretty familiar to anyone who watched his last video. It’s the front of the Vermillion City Gym, but there’s no Hyper Beam this time.]

Now then! Overkill! If you would be so kind as to open the door!

[But there is a Scolipede ramming the doors open with Megahorn!]

Excellent! Destroy everything! Everything! COBRAAAAAAAAAAAA!

[And the feed cuts out there.]

{OOC: Badges are mod approved! }
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (COBRAAAAAAAAAAAA ATTAAAAAAACK)
[As if the Pokémon Centers being destroyed yesterday wasn’t enough chaos, Cobra Commander’s decided to launch an attack of his own today. The video feed displays the entrance to the Saffron City Gym, and no, he didn’t ice over someone’s door again. Instead, a Hyper Beam from somewhere behind the camera blasts the doors open. And if the Gear signal wasn’t enough evidence as to the attacker’s identity, Cobra Commander yelling orders probably is.]

Excellent! Now that the entrance is breached, attack! Attack!

[Several of Cobra’s more loyal Pokémon, like Arbok, Abomasnow, and Skarmory can be seen heading through what’s left of the doors before the feed cuts out.]

{OOC: Network responses will be during the attack, and for action, feel free to confront him either inside the Gym where he’s making a mess of things or while he’s trying to make an escape. Just let me know which one!}

cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE!)
[Cobra Commander’s sticking with audio only for the public portion of this broadcast. After all, there are only so many hiding places in Cianwood City. He won’t be here much longer and plans to be on the next ferry to Olivine, but still, one can’t be too careful.]

First! After days of sssearching, I have recovered what was stolen from me! If you thought hiding it here would keep me from finding it, then you were sorely missstaken!

Sssecond! I overheard a very interesting ssstory in one of the Pokémon Centers. It ssssems someone has been spreading lies about me, and I will not tolerate being ssslandered! I want you to know this, whoever you are! Today you have made a powerful enemy and you will regret doing so!

Third! Mr., what was his name?

[There’s the sound of rummaging and papers being moved around as the Commander looks for a certain name.]

Mr. Xehanort, was it? If you’re still here, contact me immediately!

[End of public feed]
Private Audio on the Rocket Channel )
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (CITISSSENS OF THE WORLD)
[Today, Cobra Commander is once again broadcasting on the Rocket frequency. From the feed, it appears that he's in some sort of office. He’s seated a desk with a number of shipping invoices and other harbor related documents scattered on top of it.]

Thisss is Cobra Commander speaking. To those of you working on that list, what progress have you made? It’s been over a month since I last asked, so I should hope that some sort of progressss has been made. Report in if you have anything!

[Cobra Commander glares at the camera for a moment before continuing. Someone had better have something to report by now. Or else he’ll be forced to lecture people about what happens when they disappoint him.]

And in case anyone feels that they need to know what I'm doing in thisss place, the answer is work! Lots of work! I’ve recently been transferred to Vermillion City to oversssee Team Rocket’s ssshipping concerns. In addition to that, I have been conducting ssssurvelliance on an individual in thisss city! Surveillance that I believe will be well worth the time invested when it’s finished! And that's all you need to know for now!

cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (HAHAHAHAHA)
[Private Text to Stitch]
Contact me as soon as you get this. We need to talk about that job I offered.

[Private Text to Rockets]
If you’ve made any progress with that list, report in.

[It’s only been a few days, but the Commander’s already expecting some sort of results. After all, the way he sees it, these Rockets should be devoting any and all spare time they have to investigating and eliminating the threats he announced earlier in the week.]

[Public Audio to All of Johto]
Once again, all the people who swore I’d pay for my crimes have completely failed at bringing me to any sort of justice. For thisss, I applaud your efforts Johto. You’ve managed to reach a new level of incompetence that even I, Cobra Commander, thought was imposssssible!

[Instead of cackling, there’s a round of applause before the audio cuts out.]
cobraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa: (CITISSSENS OF THE WORLD)
[After spending the past few days working through his files and finally learning how the Pokegear version of Caller ID works, Cobra Commander is ready to present his findings. So around this time, he'll be sending out an audio broadcast on the Rocket only channel.]

[Private Audio/Video on the Rocket Frequency]

The following is a list of targets and my recommendations as to what should be done about them.

[The video feed clicks on showing a single page document.]

High Priority Targets (These targets are believed to be an immediate threat to any plans. They should be eliminated on sight unless otherwise noted.):
-The two who disabled the bombs. One goes by the name of Athrun Zala. The other is named Shinn Asuka.
-Lightning Farron: Has apparently threatened Team Rocket. May or may not be working with a group. Verify whether she is or not before eliminating.
-Roy Mustang: Opposed the Magnet Train operation. Military experience. Possesses all eight badges. Approach with extreme caution.

Others Worthy of Investigation:
-Minnie Mouse
-Crow Hogan
-Isaac McDougal
-Emmy Altava


Once again these are only my recommendations, but if someone were to act on these, by all means go right ahead.

Private Texts to Kimblee and Kato )

[With that taken care of, the following message is sent out on the public network, in text of course, since Cobra Commander is still of the opinion that no one knows who he is if he sticks to text.]

I have a question for all of Johto. If someone asked you to pick your favorite place in all of Johto, where would it be?

{OOC: Private texts are related to this. Throwing out the link again in case anyone else is interested in participating.}
