The trial captain of the Stone Shrine watched excitedly as guests poured into the main courtyard and quickly took to all the activities she had prepared. Madoka was glad the weather had cleared up, it would have been terrible to have everyone trudging around in the snow that covered the Cloud Garden weeks prior. She couldn’t stand and watch the crowd for too long, there was still much to do to make everything ran smoothly. She waved to Marina at the fireworks stand, then ducked inside one of the shrine buildings.

Felicitous Fireworks

Raves: Marina gives you a thumbs up as you light the Catherine Wheel. She can tell you and your Wimpod are rather nervous, but her big smile puts you at ease. Simipour looks ready to douse anything that got even a bit out of control. After a few moments, the firework lights up, making a loud hiss as the fire was spun. The flares flashed red and purple, with flecks of yellow dancing off of the firework. Once it created a steady circle, it started to pop and crackle. Marina clapped excitedly, the crackling was her favorite part. The fuse had reached the other fireworks you had set up, which went off with three huge BOOMs. It startled even Marina, but she was laughing by the time it was all over.
“You ok?” She checked in on you and your Wimpod. “Take this as a reminder of your great display!”
You have received TM 64 Explosion!

The festival ended with a huge finale of fireworks as a troupe of young women performed a traditional dance. A few young martial art students donned a Arcanine costume and danced across the stage, mimicking the Pokemon’s fierce capability in battle and spreading luck throughout the crowd. The sound of the last firework rung out and people began to gather their things to head home. Madoka hurried to the Torii gate at the front of the shrine, dragging a heavy bag behind her. The trial captain made sure to thank each guest and hand them a Red Envelope before they left. At the end of the night, she leaned against a Stone Lantern, exhausted but satisfied with how well the festival went. Joined by her twin Lycanroc, she retreated back to her cabin for the night. Cleaning could wait until morning, right?

Everyone receives a Red Envelope containing $500!

Thank you everyone for your participation in the Cloud Garden Lunar Festival! I had a lot of fun with this and I hope you did too. Just as a note, all prizes were chosen using RNG. The fortune telling was really just for fun, but maybe you can find some meaning from it! 恭禧发财 – Happy Lunar New Year!
Picking up my explosive disc and 500 pokedollars.
