Let the oceans rise, and the lands shall fall.
Your characters find themselves battling the rain as they attempt to reach some sort of shelter from the whirlpools and storms. They remember that it wasn't this bad at first, but.. it's only gone downhill since Team Aqua has released Alpha Kyogre into the world.
Hoenn, Route 126/127/128
Jet had always been used to deep-sea pressures. However, nothing like this had ever been what he was used to. The Dragonair rather liked being below the ocean anyways, but this was getting ridiculous. Some of his friends had fled further into the depths, where they were bound to be attacked by larger Pokemon.. or worse, find themselves getting caught up in the affairs of ancients such as Kyogre.
For now, though, the Dragonair was fine. He had curled his tail around a large boulder that had managed to escape the wrath of the sea in order to keep himself anchored somewhere. Route 128 had been hit very hard, but not hard enough, it seemed. Good, good..
If there was one thing Coatl hated more than losing in Contests, it had to be this stupid rain. The Milotic was just trying to deal with faer own issues, like finding the rest of their team. However, fae had found that, should any of them have survived the initial floods, they'd.. probably fled to the distant regions. (They secretly hoped that fae would find faer trainer in Unova. The Miltoic always wanted to do the musicals.)
Right now, though, she had to worry about herself in this storm. Her paws flailing, the Vaporeon fought to balance herself while being tossed around by the waves. She tried to stay above the surface, and keep a view of the sky. She wanted to catch sight of any land nearby. Vaporeon were not built to be tossed by the open sea like this, and the young Echo was already tired.
His hopes paid off though, as he found some camouflage with some tree leaves and wood afloat. This should help from the rain, now to find some prey. Spark thought, putting on his reaper cloth and waited...

A deep-sea dweller such as himself was used to high pressure beneath the seas, and he was thrown for a loop by the seas becoming far deeper, but only on the surface-level, it seemed. Most from his home had definitely left. He remembered that. So why he had chosen to flee to the surface, he wasn't sure. All the same, he's on the lookout.
The Milotic was taken aback when they were suddenly slammed into a rock, hitting faer head rather harshly. A pained gasp escaped fae, as the serpentine Contest Star tried to regain their sense of direction. However, this proved to be difficult, and they had no clue where they were even at. Coatl was never the Surf-user of the team. That was always reserved for the big, bulky Swampert that tramped around like he owned the place.
"Help! Help! Someone please help me!" Padton yelled out flailing his arms about and at some points being submerged in the water. He was afraid that no one was near him or could hear him
Sharp eyes could make out a bobbing shape not too far from it, a pokemon struggling to stay afloat amongst the churning waves. Razor teeth snapped at a streaking pokemon that tumbled past it as the Lapras bobbed under the flailing shape before rising out of the water, letting the pokemon find refuge on its sturdy back. In its mouth was a poor Surskit and while Laplace couldn't quite see who was on its back, the wide brimmed lilly pad like growth on the top of his head told it all it needed to know. With two rescuees, now came the hard part. Actually making it back to the relative safety of Laplace's hideout.

Okay, they just need to leap into the air, land in the water, and swim with the tides in order to reach the other Pokémon. Fae just.. needs to not lose their Mystic Water crown.. right.
Jet dipped below the water, his fins flapping wildly as he tried to swim against the waves. He had spotted someone in need of his assistance, and the Dragonair was not going to let this other Pokémon be put in danger. He ended up having to throw himself deeper into the depths, just to have a chance of reaching the Vaporeon he had spotted. He just needed to get her all the way upon the rock, then he could go and search for others.
He was struggling majorly, though..
After some struggle, Cory thrust herself up with a final powerful stroke and her snout broke against the surface as she gulped in the air, rain splattering against her face as fat drops fell from the heavens and crashed against the choppy ocean top, wind slicing through the air at fur-splitting speeds as they stirred up the ocean and whipped rain against Cory's muzzle. Fighting the waves with every thrust of her tail and flap of her flippers, Cory gazed around for someone to help. She was an experienced swimmer and figured that there would be some Pokemon that couldn't handle these awful conditions. She could barely handle them herself, but she wished to help as many people and Pokemon alike as possible, so that's exactly what she planned to do.
Ducking back under the surface, the water still swirling and thrashing as much below sea level as above, Cory thrust out with her tail and propelled herself forwards, balancing across the raging waters and cutting easily through the swirling waves. Dipping around and dodging various rocks and debris that were being swept away, tossed, and tortured by the current, Cory managed to gain some good distance and slowed down, keeping her eyes peeled for any 'Mon in need of help. She suddenly spotted the tail and hindquarters of a struggling Vaporeon, and she immediately dove forwards to help. Disregarding her tendency to never actually be able to help whenever she tried, Cory pushed herself upwards and broke the surface of the water, making herself visible to the struggling Vaporeon. Shouting over the thundering storm, she made sure that the Vaporeon understood she was only trying to help, before disappearing under the waves once more. Slipping under the Vaporeon's hind legs, she provided support with her wide back and allowed for a somewhat-solid surface to grip and hold on to, allowing the Pokemon to become anchored and supported while they regained their footing and energy. She wasn't quite sure how she was going to support and carry an entire Vaporeon's weight on her back while keeping the both of them afloat at the same time, but she had to try. It was worth it.
If she could find a good cave to shelter the Pokémon, then she could rescue everyone and they could wait out the storm. She noticed lots of other Pokémon battling the tides, and she wanted to help so badly, but she couldn’t help if they had nowhere to go. She told herself she was helping by searching for a safe space for all the Pokémon, and though she still felt bad, she pushed on, diving lower to hopefully escape the thrash of the storm at least slightly. Even though she was searching everywhere she could think of and looking for any possible shelter from the heavy storm, so far she had gotten no luck.
"Do you need any help getting around? You look a little lost, and I'd imagine getting tossed around in the waves isn't good for anyone!"
"On second thought, this boulder does provide a good safety from the storms." Spark quickly noted and stopped wiggling free. Instead if being a grouch all day as well, he illuminated the area for others to come in and relax. I suppose I could take a nap in the meantime. Spark thought after guaranteeing that no predators could get past the log.
