Kawaii: After your Pokemon had spotted the thief, you went into full fight or flight mode. Although your Pokemon had been mildly disobedient before, they jumped to your side upon being summoned. Your Seedot --- Tengu, on the other hand, simply remained in your arms and gave an eerie sigh. Even a stranger could tell that something was most certainly off with the creature, but almost no one could give a reason for it's aliment. You ordered your Pokemon to be on guard, although you had no idea what this attempted thief was at the moment, you knew for certain that thieves were indeed not very good people or Pokemon.

You continued trekking through the swamp, a little more cautiously than you had been before. Thoughts swirled through your mind as to what this Pokemon could be, you knew for certain that various poison, grass, and bug Pokemon called this place their home. However, none of the Pokemon that flickered into your mind fit the description of a theoretical thief. Part of you assumed that it might be a Scraggy, however, the more you thought about it... the more foolish the thought seemed. You brushed it away, glancing down at the Seedot in your arms. You knew that even though life flared inside the acorn Pokemon, it was seemingly empty and dull. You prayed to yourself that one day he may be able to become a strong member, grow up and be able to actually move and walk on his own. The thought of this even fuelled the small Seedot, he had high hopes that maybe in this blessed place he may be able to be filled with life through Celebi.

As you progressed through the blessed swamp, every small noise had you on edge. You were frightened of whatever lurked in the shadows, that thief could be anywhere you looked, he could be sneaking up on you right now.. That thought made your hair stand on edge, you turned around quickly, only to observe nothing. You knew your nerves were getting the better of you, you had to remain calm in order to not put the rest of your team on edge. Your Senret puffed out her chest, ready to defend you, Tengu, and Oisin if worse came to worse. You smiled at the thought, it was admirable to see such bravery from her. Your walk continued at a brisk pace, until you heard something from behind you.


It was a strange laugh, the only other noise you could hear in this odd swamp. You turned quickly, finally getting a look at your tormentor. It was a hunched over frog of some sort, blue skin and puffed out cheeks. It laughed once again, glancing at the Seedot in your hands. It's yellow eyes seemed to look through you, it knew you were in this sacred swamp and it wanted to know why. It took a step forward, forcing you to take a step back. You were terrified, you knew the Pokemon in front of you could inject poison into you by simply jabbing at you. Those puffy cheeks held all sorts of horrible poison. It looked at you again, taking a running start towards you. You let out a scream, closing your eyes and readying yourself for impact, but nothing came. You opened your eyes quickly, seeing the Pokemon was gone... and Tengu was also missing! When it charged you it must've grabbed him and ran off.

You had to find him! He was probably terrified of that Pokemon... what do you do?

Patches: The smell hit your nose immediately, it was awful. Why would they hold a festival in such a horribly smelling place? Were they so busy with the planning of the party that they hadn't had the chance to clean their home? It was a little pitiable, and you felt as though you must do everything in your power to help the home owners. Your Pikachu, meanwhile, was digging through your bag in a vain attempt to bury itself within it's Pokeball. Your Eevee on the other hand, was seemingly having the time of it's life bounding through the various corridors of the sprawling mansion. You yanked a napkin from out of your bag, wiping away the dust and the various cobwebs that hung from the ceiling. Your first goal now, was to find the source of the smell before attending the party.

A chill resonates through your entire body, you feel it coming from the left hallway. You immediately get a good feeling about that direction, that was probably where the festival was.. but you weren't done cleaning up at the moment. However, your Eevee didn't have a care in the world, it pranced down that hallway, not worried about what you, or anyone else thought of it. As you told your Eevee to be careful, you were immediately silenced by some sort of loud noise, and the smell getting much, much worse. You glance at the napkin in your hand, it's mangled, falling apart, and far too overused at this point to get anything else done with it. As you continue down the hallway, you notice a smoky black door, deep gashes running through it's surface. You immediately think to yourself how much more of a cleaning this place needed, as well as the thought that they'd need a new door. The smell is overwhelming at this point, and the thought crossed your mind very suddenly that the smell must be coming from beyond here. Your Eevee places it's paws on the door and gives you a pleading look, wanting desperately to go inside. Your Pikachu jumps down in protest, but you are determined. If you want to get this place clean, you want to start with the source of that awful smell.

You place your hand on the handle, it seems awfully cold compared to the rest of the building. The smoky black tint of the door would probably make you assume the opposite, as if it had been burnt. As you push the door open, you swear you hear some sort of growling as you enter the room, but you brush it off as you hearing things. You looked around the oddly spacious room, realising two things almost instantly. The first was that it was extremely cold in here, the second was that there were no stairs leading into the basement here. The smell was still present however, and it seemed to be coming from a particular corner of the bedroom. You walked towards it, noticing something on the floor. It seemed to be a bag of... incense? Someone must've been burning it before you arrived, but whatever flavour it was smelt absolutely disgusting. You picked up the bag and pulled out some of the contents, it almost looked like ash in your hand. You shrugged, deciding to take it with you in the hopes of disposing of it.

You looked around once again, seeing a particular painting on the wall above where you found the baggie... had that always been there? You don't recall seeing it when you first walked into the room, but you must've just glanced over it... right? You eye it carefully, noticing it looks like some sort of gem-eyed Pokemon, a large smile resting upon it's face. It looks almost real in a way, it's smile almost chills you in a way. You notice the painting is somewhat crooked, you almost want to adjust it in a way.

The mysterious painting is tilted on it's hinge, should you adjust it to help tidy the house a bit or continue on your way? What do you do?
