Chimera Ant arc Edit

Pokkle's Team

Ponzu telling the group that the message wasn't picked up

While being part of an expedition group in NGL, with Pokkle, Ponzu, and Pekuba, they bear witness to a group of Chimera Ants, most notably a Spiky Chimera Ant wielding two pistols, hunting human prey.[1] Sometime later one of Ponzu's messenger bees returns revealing that no one has been able to pick up it's message. Meaning the group of five other hunters they were in contact with must of been annihilated. Anxious by the situation, Pokkle suggests they leave, with both Pekuba and Balda in agreeance.[2]

Pokkle admits to the group they're not strong enough on there own and that they need to leave NGL, get in contact with the outside world to warn them about the crisis at hand so an official extermination squad could be formed in order to deal with the Chimera Ants. As Balda agrees with what Pokkle said, Pekuba all panic stricken tries to say something, but is cut off mid sentence as a Chimera Ant tunnels up from the ground and severs his head off.[2]
