Mio’s excitement was infectious as Patches couldn’t help from chasing her Pikachu up and down the rolling hills. The green grass was so soft and inviting that the pair began to roll down the slopes in sheer joy.

After a while, Patches decided to take a break while Mio continued her revelry. She sat under one of many trees that were scattered across the meadow, providing an umbrella-like shade for a perfect resting spot at the top of the hill. Calling upon another one of her Pokemon to enjoy the atmosphere, Patches mistakenly sends out her Charmander, Kei, but welcomes him anyway. Kei smiles and rests with his trainer under the shade of the tree, a gentle breeze blowing past them.

It wasn’t too long until this moment of tranquility was interrupted. Mio suddenly came darting up to Patches and Kei, trying to draw their attention to something. She must have picked up an unusual sound with her ears, because they were standing up in alert and were twitching. She then darted back down the hill, but not too fast so that Patches and Kei could keep up.

Jogging down the hill and up and over another hill, Patches could see a sort of commotion in the short distance. There seemed to be some kind of squabble going on. Picking up the pace, Patches and her two Pokemon hurried over to see what it was. As they approached the tussle, it seemed to involve two bear-like Pokemon. The first was a little black and white cub, a Pancham, who was bullying the pink and brown cub, a Stufful. The Pancham was repeatedly pushing the Stufful down to the ground, who in turn was crying out pitifully and trying to get back on its feet. Dare Patches attempt to break up this squabble?
Patches was completely out of breath. After having exhausted all of her energy playing on the hills not very long ago, the fact that she had to jog over a hill to keep up with Mio took nearly all of the energy she had left. She speaks between breaths, “Mio.. can you… please go a bit… slower next time?” she falls to her knees in order to rest and looks ahead, she immediately notices some sort of commotion not too far from where she was. She suddenly stands up and begins running ahead of her Pokemon in order to get a better look. Turns out, she has plenty of energy left after all, she was just being overdramatic.

“So cuuuuute!!” She squeaks out when she spots the cubs ahead of her. “Charrr...” Kei notices that the Stufful is being bullied right away and being an emotional little guy he begins to tear up. “Aw Kei... Are you sad that you don’t have a little bear friend?” As usual, Patches is completely oblivious to the reality of the situation. She tends to see the world through rose-colored glasses and sometimes it takes effort from her Pokemon to make her realize that something just isn’t right. “PIIII!” Mio has had enough. She can’t stand to watch the bullying go on any longer and doesn’t want to waste time trying to explain it to Patches. She makes up her mind on her own and takes off running straight for the Pancham, she knows she is going to have to force it to Play Nice.

Patches notices Mio take off toward the two little cubs and suddenly comes up with an idea, she then looks down at Kei. “They look like they are so soft! You want to be their friend and Mio clearly has the right idea! Time for a group hug!!” She takes off running behind Mio with her arms spread wide open fully prepared to scoop up all of the Pokemon and hug them tight. Kei knows Patches actually has a very bad idea and quickly grabs her leg in order to stop her, but it seems to be no use. Now Kei is just along for the ride and he is beginning to panic. He can’t think of any other way to stop his trainer so he is forced to let out a Smokescreen in hopes that it will make her miss her target. Seems like it’s just another day where due to how naive Patches can sometimes be, her Pokemon are forced to act on their own in order to protect her while also defending justice.
