*Sigh* Y'know, it's kinda annoying to see so many scrubs register and be unable to help the along their ways. So I'm gonna go ahead and try to fix that issue here, and maybe earn a few star shards as I go~! Using ol' Kamen's starting post, if he doesn't mind!

Having gathered up his new gear, Cameron had little time to place it in his bag before he had to chase down the clearly excited doduo. Thankfully, Mystia already knew where to go, so the walk was a lot less stressful than it could have been. Sure enough, the pair soon see the log cabin that served as the 'town center' despite being on the fringes of the village: the one and only Viridian Gym!

"Ah, hello!" a voice calls out to Cameron as he walks into the building. The source was a rather unimpressive-looking young man, with plain brown hair and a t-shirt with the gym's insignia emblazoned on the front. "Welcome to the Viridian Gym- I'm sure you knew what this place was already, though." He gave a small cough, clearly biding a few seconds to remember what he was supposed to say next. "Anyways, most of our staff are a bit busy with their own business, so we can't offer any training hours for the time being. May we interest you in a quest?" he motioned to the billboard further in the room. "We do have a few today, but it's fine if you don't want to!"

Spoiler: show
Cameron has a couple of small 'quests' he could potentially take at this time:
-A) The first is a plea for help removing a small weedle infestation in one of the flower beds. However, because the weedle run off at the first sign of conflict, none of them will be catchable. It will take a while to clear out the entire field, though it ultimately won't be too difficult to do on it's own.
-B) The second is a bit of a fetch quest, requiring Cameron to to deliver berries from the same field to the marketplace and a bundle of equipment back to the it. Again, it's little more than busy work, however it gives Mystia fewer opportunities to gain experience.

He can, of course, opt not to take either quest, thus creating route C).

Regardless of what path he decides to take, he will witness a group of flabebe, one for each color, being harassed by a pair of pidgey. The whole group will disperse if approached, though the white flabebe will linger for a second longer than the rest once the birds flee before following it's brethren. !) If he ignores the scene, the whole group will make it's way in the direction of the berry field. ?)

-A!) The weedle elimination process will go smoothly at first, but the pidgey will eventually show back up and start scaring the weedle back towards the field. Cameron then has to choose between continuing as things are (which will ultimately fail) or challenging the pidgey. This time, they won't fly away immediately- rather, one will take on the challenge head on. Once it takes too much damage, however, it's partner will try to join in, only to be attacked by two of the flabebe. Both pidgey should go down easily from there, though the white flabebe will be heavily injured in the process. Should Cameron give it an oran berry, it will decide to join him but refuse to help with the weedle (for obvious reasons). Once it's partner is sure the white'll be alright, it will meet back up with the other three and disappear into the night. Once he signs out, he will receive $200, 2 star shards, and a basic berry of his choice for his efforts.

-B!) Delivering the berries will go by without incident, but the should the pidgey will steal the tool package as the Cameron is about to take it. Even if he were to try to ride Mystia to catch up to them, they'd quickly lose him. A young woman with a growlithe will see the encounter and introduce herself as Anne, offering to help track the birds by means of scent. If he accepts the offer, they will track the pidgey to their nest, where quite a few other stolen goods will be found, though the pidgey themselves have already moved on to what ever dastardly deeds they may be attempting to do next. Anne will suggest that Cameron finish his delivery and let her call up the authorities. Upon arriving to the field, he will find one of the pidgey waiting for him, eager to fight. This time, the battle will be uninterrupted and it will be catchable. From there, all he has to do is finally turn in the package and check out to finish the quest, earning $200, a star shard, and two basic berries of his choice. Declining Anne's initial offer will cause the quest to fail.

-C!) Once the pokemon have gone their separate ways, Cameron can either try to chase the birds or go his own way, since the little pixies have already faded from view. Should he chase the birds, he will eventually run into Anne, who will explain that they have been causing a lot of trouble recently and she'd been hunting them down as part of a quest of her own. He can offer to help her, perhaps explaining what he had witnessed in the process, at which point she'll accept the offer and have her growlithe lead them both to the nest. This will corner the birds, who will go into 'cornered animal' mode and attack the two trainers. Like last time, the pidgey Cameron faces off against is capturable. Once both birds are incapacitated, be it through capture or otherwise, He can help her gather up the stolen goods and turn them in to the police, earning $100 and a star shard for helping Anne with her quest.

Both the pidgey and the flabebe are level 4 with no egg moves.

Should he, for whatever stupid reason, decide to take neither quest and ignore the scene before him, Cameron will instead find an injured weedle (lv.2) he can heal, befriend, and capture to at least give him something. I'm not a complete jerk...
