A bark from one of her Lycanroc and the sound of people coming up the long stairway signaled that it was time for the event to begin. The young shrine maiden hurried to the shrine gate to welcome the guests, wishing them happy new year and chatting with the ones she was more familiar with. Lala the Midday Lycanroc sat by her side, wagging her tail and letting children pet her.

The Stone Shrine was alight with lanterns and decorations in the traditional, auspicious red. Signs glittered with characters symbolizing luck, wealth, and general good fortune for the new year. The grounds of the shrine were soon packed with celebrating visitors and their Pokemon. There were plenty of activities for people of all ages to enjoy, but the way the crowd was flowing through the Shrine, it would be hard to get to everything before the ceremony ended with a huge fireworks show.

Year of the Dog
*Note, this does not count as your activity, but please claim a treat for your favorite puppy!(or their evolution) One per trainer. These treats give +2 bond and +1 level*
Madoka’s Midnight Lycanroc, the more intimidating Lulu, sits near the main shrine building next to a sign.
“The following Pokemon may receive a special gift. Homemade with all natural ingredients (taste tested by Lala and Lulu). May it bring you luck and strength in the new year!”

Below the sign is a large bowl filled with bone shaped treats, wrapped in a charm made of red string. Lulu is drooling so much there is a puddle on the ground in front of her. Madoka promised her that she can have any leftovers, so she is keeping a Keen Eye to make sure nobody takes more than one.

Felicitous Fireworks
Though the fireworks for tonight’s show are safely behind the shrine and away from any stray Fire types, there is a collection of smaller fireworks for guests to pick up and play with. All kinds of fireworks from Roman Candles to Cherry Bombs are available for your enjoyment. They seem easy enough to light on their own. Trial Captain Marina is close by with her Simipour in case things get out of hand, but the two of them are delighted every time a particularly beautiful display goes off. She cheers and hands something to a group of children who used sparklers to write out their names. Perhaps you can create a display worthy of her praise as well?

Please choose 1 activity to take part in. Responses must be posted by February 15. RP-optional. Bond is not obtainable from this event. You’ll receive one update including your prize on Lunar New Year, February 16.
I won't have a chance to RP unfortunately however Brayden will be going to Felicitous Fireworks!
