The sleep in your eyes calls you back to bed, finding out what woke you would have to wait till the morning.

Light filters in through the window, awakening you on this new day. You clean yourself up before heading out of the room, intent on locating Madoka, who would likely be trying to find out the source of the noise as well. It doesn't take long for you to find the shrine keeper, who is working with her Lycanroc to try and round up a herd of distressed Rock Pokemon. She beckons you over, likely needing your assistance.

"Good morning Terri, I hope you slept well." The trial captain looks a little tired this morning, like she hadn't gotten much sleep last night. "Did you get woken up last night as well? These Pokemon have been going crazy, it seems something happened in the caverns and forced them out. The Aron, Geodudes and Roggenrola begin to settle as Madoka's Lycanroc herd them into a nearby clearing. "I've got my hands full here, do you think you could go investigate for me? You'll need a Pokemon that can use Flash to see inside the caverns, it gets quite dark in there." You wanted to look around the shrine a little more and a chance to explore the caverns would likely involve you getting to check out the true shrine. The question was whether you were equipped to handle the situation on your own or not...
It had been a long, eventful, ultimately enjoyable day, and now Terri was fast asleep, both her and her team getting some well-deserved rest. "Mm... but why do we refuse the outside world? They can learn to walk in harmony with us..." she was mumbling in her sleep. And soon, whatever dream she was having was abruptly interrupted by a sudden and rather loud noise that got the mysterious Trainer to sit bolt upright in bed. "WAH! Tell! What?!" she exclaimed, looking all around. More loud crashing noises were all the response she got. Now much more awake, Terri turned her attention to the window, peering out of it in concern, but the shrine didn't seem under attack... regardless, it wasn't long until sheer sleepiness overpowered Terri's curiosity so thoroughly that she could do little else but go back to bed.

The next morning, Terri left her room, all cleaned up and dressed for the day ahead. And the first thing her mind was focused on was finding Madoka, try to find out just what was going on the past night. But as she saw Madoka, it was clear that the shrine keeper was busy with something. Her and her Lycanroc were trying to round up what appeared to be a number of distressed Rock-types, and upon spotting Terri, Madoka beckoned her over. "Good morning, Madoka," Terri responded. "I slept well. The noises woke me up, but not for very long." It turned out that whatever had happened last night had woken Madoka up as well, and had also driven the various Rock-types out of their cavern. She asked Terri if she would be willing to go in and see what was happening in there, considering the shrine maden was a bit occupied at the moment, warning Terri in the process that she would need a Pokémon with Flash to proceed, considering how dark the cave was.

Terri gave a small smile. While her eyes were quite good, and she felt rather at home in dark cavernous places, this did not translate to exceptional night vision, but by no means did this mean she was incapable of finding her way. "We've got this," she assured Madoka, producing a Psychic Ball and tossing it up. "Andromeda, engage!" she exclaimed, her Starmie appearing in a flash of light. "I'll need you to use Flash to light the way, Andromeda," said Terri. "We'll be exploring a cave to find out what drove out all the Rock-types last night."

"Of course I'll help," the Starmie responded, her core flashing a reassuring blue as she spoke. "Do you believe I will be needed to battle?"

"It's possible, but we don't know," Terri shrugged. "But be ready no matter what, OK?"

"Naturally," agreed Andromeda.

Terri nodded, then turned back to Madoka. "Just tell us which way to the caverns, please," she said.

Missingno. Master- Confident you can handle the situation in the cave, you release your Starmie from its Pokeball. Thankfully the Water type already knew Flash, which checked off the issue of visibility in the cavern. Madoka smiles, she seems confident that the task is in capable hands, you had bested her in her trial after all.

"The entrance to the cavern is down behind the shrine, you can't miss it." Madoka waves you goodbye as you head towards the shrine, Andromeda floating closely behind. Searching behind the shrine you quickly locate the entrance to the Cosmic Cavern. You hear a strange noise coming from within, some sort of buzzing. The thing was though, it didn't really sound like any Bug type Pokemon you have ever heard before, it had this strange quality to it that was hard to pin down. Andromeda's gem lights up as you enter the tunnel, quickly pushing back the darkness and illuminating the path in front of you.

You follow the main tunnel for a few minutes, before a terrifying roar stops you in your tracks. The cavern seems to shake as something approaches, it seems that another Pokemon was being forced from the caverns, this one likely much larger and angrier than the distressed Rock types outside. It was probably a good idea for you to prepare yourself for conflict. As the frustrated Pokemon closes in, you do your best to peer into the dark, any sign of what you would be facing would likely help you prepare. Some of the light from Andromeda's gem reflects off a polished surface, perhaps something metallic?

With a smile and a nod, Terri acknowledged the directions from Madoka and thanked her for them. And with that, they were off. The entrance to the Cosmic Cavern, true to Madoka's word, was easy to locate.

Terri tilted her head as they approached. "Do you hear that, Andromeda?" she asked.

"Indeed," the Starmie responded- in her native language, as opposed to telepathy, since Terri seemed to have no trouble understanding either. "The question is, what is it? I'm not familiar with this at all..."

"It's very strange," agreed Terri, sounding vaguely intrigued. "I would suppose a Bug-type would be a reasonable guess, but I've never heard a Bug-type like that before. Well... we may just find out," she stated. "Andromeda, use Flash."

And that's just what Andromeda did. With the Starmie leading the way, Terri entered the cave. The two followed the main tunnel for several minutes, when a thunderous roar echoed throughout. Both of them stopped at this, Andromeda's gem flickering in alarm for a second. Terri did not cry out, did not indicate shock or fear, but did stop along with Andromeda, staring into the darkness ahead, head tilted as though she was more curious than anything. Not that Andromeda was fool enough to mistake this for Terri underestimating the gravity of the situation- Terri was harder to read than the walls of the Abyssal Ruins in Unova, but the Starmie had seen for herself many times before- when Terri or anyone she cared about was in imminent danger, the mysterious young Trainer would never fail to take action. Every bit as capable in that regard as Andromeda's former Trainer, Keith Masters.

"Something is coming," Andromeda said urgently. "Something just as distressed as the Rock-tyeps from earlier, but likely much more dangerous."

Terri nodded. "Then we should be ready for it," she decided. "Impede its rampage with Reflect and Thunder Wave, and then... is that metal?" she murmured, seeing that Andromeda's light seemed to be reflecting off of whatever was approaching. "In that case, follow up with Firestream," stated Terri.

As he overheard Mint’s strategy, he smiled and called out to his Sneasel, “You know what to do, Sneas. Don’t let it hit you!”

Celeste coughed again, trying to clear her throat as her wings flapped before Sneasel. The weasel glared back at the parrot and displayed its claws. As Celeste began to flap her wings harder, the friction began to heat up the air as she summoned a Heat Wave. However, as her wings kicked up a gust and pushed the air current forward, Celeste was shocked to find that the Sneasel had suddenly disappeared. Before she could realize that it had slipped past her defenses, it was already too late as Sneasel rammed into the Chatot from behind with a sneaky Feint Attack.

Marcus smirked and called out, “Now so tough now, are you? Let’s counter their hot air with some cold!” The Sneasel quickly nodded and began blowing a harsh Icy Wind that chilled Celeste to the bone. It was a direct hit, and the bird winced as she spun around. She was trying to keep up with the Sneasel to target her next attack, but it was just too fast for her at this point. When it looked as if Celeste wasn’t going to be able to keep up any further, a surge of energy suddenly flowed into her body. A whistle-like tweeting could be heard as it was none other than the small yellow bird on the sidelines dancing away and shaking its pompoms as it offered Celeste a Helping Hand. Now filled with a newfound confidence, Celeste began flapping her wings once again. This time, she summoned a Heat Wave so powerful that no amount of running around could dodge its effect.

Sneasel was clearly bothered as the temperature continued to rise. “Hey, that’s cheating!” Marcus called out through gritted teeth. “If that’s how they’re going to play it, then two can play at that game!” Marcus tossed two Pokeballs, releasing Ratty the Raticate and Kimmy’s old Sentret. Sneasel looked at its companions and beckoned them over as it smacked Celeste. Ratty joined in next, helping Beat the Chatot Up, followed by the reluctant Sentret. With tears in its eyes, Sentret was too timid to disobey its new trainer and lunged forward to hit Celeste as well. Celeste had taken quite a few hits this turn, but Sneasel wasn’t doing so hot either. What will Mint do?
Mint grimaced as Marcus and his Sneasel made short work of her thought to use Heat Wave by dodging with a Feint Attack and leaving Celeste hopelessly unable to keep up using an Icy Wind. Angry but powerless, Mint could only watch...before a tweet sang through the air, revitalizing Celeste and putting her back in the fight! The Oricorio from before stood enthusiastic as ever on the sidelines, cheering on Celeste with as much vim and vigor as it had Kimmy’s Sentret before it, adorably bouncing and bobbing like a little cheerleader might. Mint could only tremble in disgust as this of all things made Marcus quite upset. Not one to listen to his drivel this time, she cut him off as he executed his Beat Up attack.

“Have you been skipping Trainer’s School? Or do they not teach you kids to pay attention to their surroundings in battle anymore? I’d loathe to battle you someplace more hazardous, that’s for sure!” she said dryly and severely, fists clenched and starting to tremble with genuine anger. “You have to adapt your strategy based on what’s around you! If you don’t, you could risk all of the match, your own safety, your opponent’s, and that of your Pokémon and theirs. If you learn nothing else from this battle, at least keep that in mind!” she added, with a glare that could wither a Venusaur. “Now, back to the task at hand.” she growled, still upset but with a much more focused and tranquil fury. “Celeste, keep up the Heat Waves, not much else we can do until your voice recovers.”

Celeste readied herself once again, making sure the Sneasel was in full view this time. She would have angrily squawked at this boy with her Trainer, were she able to use her voice, but that moment had passed. As for the battle at hand, it was now or never-she had to pull this out!

Meetan – After assessing the situation, given the close proximity of both options that Granny gave you, you decide that you should be able to do both. It shouldn’t be a problem at all! Picking Oran Berries seems to be pretty straight forward, so you decide to put your Machop Nani to work. After you finish explaining what she needs to do, Nani confidently walks over to the bushes and grabs one of the empty buckets near Ringo and you watch for a few seconds to confirm that she is having no problems which certainly seems to be the case as she plucks berries one by one.

With that task being taken care of, you can now focus on helping Isaac, who certainly appears to need more help than Ringo at the moment. Isaac was standing there with his knees shaking, watching in horror as four Combee’s were beginning to dodge the farms Herdier and make their way towards him. Bently was already preparing his Weather Ball which was absorbing the power of the sun and transforming into a ball of fire that was hurled at the Combee’s. The ball went right for them and since the Combee’s weren’t paying any attention to you at all, it hit three out of four of them easily. (Bently gains 1 level) “Huh!?” Isaac looked toward you and your Pokemon. One Combee who took most of the hit was knocked out of the air and was regaining it’s bearings. The other two were slightly charred but their attention was now 100% on you and your Pokemon. Even the one who wasn’t hit was now charging forward.

Bently was prepared for this and began to release his Acid Spray on the group. “W-wait! D-don’t hurt them!” Isaac was finally mobile again and nearly leaped in front of the Combee to protect them but some of the acid hit his boots which were now sizzling as they began to melt causing him to fumble to the ground and rip off his boots before the acid reached his feet. All four of the Combee that had been charging in were hit by the acid and cried out in anger, in that moment all of them together began to whip up a large Gust. It was at that exact moment that Dutchess used her Mimic to copy Bently’s Acid Spray and was throwing more acid in of her own. However, the Gust was created by 4 Pokemon and was very strong so the acid was sent right back to where it came from, drenching both Dutchess and Bently while also causing both of them to lose their footing and tumble backwards quite a distance, you somehow manage to keep your balance but not without some difficulty. “T-the Combee are not so bad!! You don’t have to fight!!” Isaac was nervously shouting with worry knowing that his mistake has caused a fight to break out. Then, after regaining her footing, Dutchess let out a loud cry using her Hyper Voice, knocking the Combee who had dealt with the worst of the Weather Ball out of the air it seems to be unconscious but there are still three left charging forward. (Dutchess gains 2 levels)

“Cherrrrrrr!!!???!” Suddenly you hear a strange cry from behind you causing you to glance back. That’s when you notice Nani proudly staring at the bucket she was filling which now as a Cherubi crammed into it, its body filling the buckets opening so completely that you wouldn’t be surprised if it was now stuck in the bucket, it also seems to be flailing about and Ringo appeared to be oblivious. Suddenly a Sweet Scent fills your nose and there is no doubt that it’s coming from those Combee. You also notice Granny calmly watching everything that’s happening from a safe distance with what seems to be an amused look on her face.

Missingno. Master- You do your best to prepare for the mysterious raging Pokemon, quickly ordering Andromeda to set up a Reflect. With a spin and a flash of its gem, the Starmie constructs a thick reflective pane that would hopefully shield the two of you from the rampaging beast. The shaking gets stronger as the Pokemon finally comes into view, a rather enraged Aggron bashes at the side of the tunnel as it looks to escape from the annoying sound that likely stirred it from its rest. The massive Pokemon crashes into Andromeda's reflective pane, it seems barring its way might have been a mistake.

The Aggron swings a punch at the pane, smashing it to pieces with a force strong enough to Break through a Brick wall. It then heads for Andromeda, but the Starmie is prepared and quickly lets loose a wave of electricity that wraps around the Aggron. The powerful Steel type lets out a roar of frustration as it finds itself locked up with paralysis. Looking to push her advantage, Starmie strikes with a move one wouldn't expect from a Water type. The psychic starfish lets loose a stream of fire that washes over the Aggron, dealing a nice bit of damage but failing to leave a burn. The Aggron finally manages to push through its paralysis however and swings its tail around with tremendous force. The brutal hit sends Andromeda crashing into the side of the tunnel, which gets slightly darker as her gem dims. If Andromeda was overpowered by the Aggron you would lose your light source, leaving you in darkness. You now had a real battle on your hands with the Aggron intent on punishing you for getting in its way.

Terri had given her orders, and not a moment too soon- the source of the roar made itself apparent, as a large metallic beast of a Pokémon appeared before them. As Andromeda began to attack, Terri produced her Pokédex and consulted it for information.

"Aggron, the Iron Armor Pokémon. A Steel and Rock-type, and the evolved form of Lairon. Aggron claims an entire mountain as its territory and is highly protective of its environment. Those that violate its territory are mercilessly thrashed."

Terri said nothing as she surveyed the situation, Andromeda carrying out her attacks as commanded. Aggron became paralyzed by the Thunder Wave, impeded by Reflect, and damaged, albeit not burned, by the Firestream. Meanwhile, it managed to shatter the Reflect with a powerful Brick Break, and follow up with an intense and powerful Brutal Swing, super effective against the Starmie.

"Ow... The Aggron is exceptionally powerful," Andromeda said weakly to Terri.

Terri nodded. "We made a mistake," she said quietly. "Aggron only wanted to escape from whatever was bothering it, and we got in its way... we have to help it," she decided.

"How?" the Starmie questioned. "It's unlikely to listen to reason- between the disturbance in the cave, and our interference, it is infuriated. And Aggron are not known for being especially reasonable to begin with."

Terri shook her head. "We have to try," she said. "Andromeda, use Recover and be sure to keep your light going. Leave this to us." As she spoke, she drew a Lure Ball off her belt and tossed it forward. "George, engage!" she exclaimed.

In a flash of light, Terri's Inkay appeared before them. "Battle! Battle?" the Dark/Psychic-type inquired upon spotting the Aggron.

Terri shook her head. "No, George- we have to calm Aggron down and let it get out of here," she stated. As she spoke, she dug a Lum Berry out of her bag and tossed it to George, who caught it in his thin white tentacles. "Use Switcheroo to give that berry to Aggron, let it eat it to cure its paralysis. After that, use Hypnosis- don't try to put it to sleep, just try and calm it down so that it'll listen when I apologize, and so that when we step aside to let it pass, it just passes us without trying to attack any further." She hesitated here- was this battle truly unavoidable, or did she catch her mistake in time to make it right? Terri hoped it was the latter, but if it was the former... "And if that doesn't work- and only if battling Aggron is truly unavoidable- then you'll have to use Superpower," stated Terri.

Andromeda listened to her Trainer, mildly impressed. In the face of a rampaging Aggron, most Trainers would either fight it head-on or haul ass in the other direction. Not Terri, though- she sought to help the Aggron. Of course, this was not necessarily the smartest course of action- there was no guarantee this would work, and indeed, judging by Terri telling George to use Superpower if necessary, she knew this good and well, too. But she, Andromeda, was not content to leave George to take on Aggron all by himself. She therefore decided that if it did come down to a battle, and if George found himself in trouble, she would try and assist with Hydro Pump.

Terri, meanwhile, stood in place, saying nothing further. Not yet. Words would be useless if Aggron was too enraged to hear them. Her apology would need to wait until George calmed Aggron down. If he was able to calm it down.


(OOC: Lum Berry is #1 of 11)

To your dismay, you had to play along with Primrose’s game and humor this fantasy her Musharna had created. You thought back to the fairytale this was no doubt based upon and came upon the conclusion that there had to be some kind of unconventional solution. While you were donning a suit of shining armor, you doubted that you were this Komala’s true love.

Your armor clanked loudly as you called out your Golett. The Automaton Pokemon appeared in a flash of light, donning a feathered cap fitting for whatever period this fairytale was supposed to be set in. You instructed him to provide Komala with the kiss to wake it up, unsure of how it would go. Pahallah, after calculating the best way to show affection without having a mouth, clunked over to Komala’s bedside. Komala seemed to notice the Golett approach, and as Pahallah leaned over she suddenly rolled away to the other side of the bed. Pahallah tried to follow, but Komala tumbled the other way. Soon, the Golett was chasing the Komala around her canopy bed, non-existent lips pursed for a kiss. You realized that Komala was actually performing a Rollout, steadily gaining speed and power with each time she completed a rotation. How was Pahallah to get his kiss?
Things were going splendidly… for someone on the other edge of the world, probably. Because Hush was starting to get a migraine, and his mood was becoming progressively worse – to the point where he might well flunk the trial for putting a bullet in Komala’s head.

“Oh for fuck’s sake.”

Sleeping Beauty was performing a Rollout, and Hush couldn’t help but think that would’ve made the original tale a lot more interesting, despite turning the current scenario into a damn nightmare. Primrose, the little shit, was asking for a bullet of her own, and Musharna could eat the third for all he cared. He just wanted to get this over with, get out of this ridiculous suit of armour and engage in some good old fashioned violence. He needed it.

“You’re a terrible kisser Pahaliah,” he declared, attempting to draw some amusement from the infuriating situation. He approached the befuddled automaton, dropped to one knee and tapped it on the shoulder. “She’s a tease. Bet she loves a dominant genderless male though. So go ahead and dominate”.

Pahaliah was both a machine and a spirit. And as such, it was actually quite talented at reading minds, especially Hush’s. The man didn’t need to spell it out to him – he was giving it permission to release restraints, in his own peculiar way. The Golett could tell Hush was losing his patience if he allowed it to upgrade now of all times, but Pahaliah wasn’t about to argue – it had been eager to test the limits of its power for quite some time now. All it had to do was remove the internal lock and…

“There ya go.”

Light invaded the room, a gorgeous blue glow that preceded a massive increase in the machine’s size – so much so that it wound up towering over the canopy itself. When the shine wore off, Pahaliah stood a titan, a monstrous that only failed to look absolutely terrifying due to the silly hat bestowed upon it by Primrose’s twisted sense of humour.

I’m going to murder her.

The giant’s eyes remained fixed on the spinning Komala, running calculations. It shouldn’t prove too troublesome now, but he was obligated by internal protocols to await Hush’s input. Fortunately, it fell in line with its own reasoning.

“You should be strong enough to grab her and force her to stop with your bare hands, but if you don’t want to be that rough of a lover, a Psychic grip should be enough. When you have a firm hold, maybe try that loving kiss again.”

KingGhidorah: Your anger faded, giving you the clarity to look over the battlefield and reassess the situation. Clarence’s two heads squawked pitifully as Kingler poked lightly at him. You joined Kingler in trying to comfort the fainted Bird Pokemon. Throh encouraged you to do what was right and apologize, even if this kid was the one who started it all. The young trainer didn’t look at you as you knelt down beside him and explained your behavior. You held out a bandana for him to blow his nose, and he grabbed it quickly out of your hand.

“I…I didn’t mean to be so mean to Clarence…” He sniffed, wiping copious amounts of snot into your bandana before handing it back. He pulled out Clarence’s Pokeball and returned him with a sigh. “He’s not even mine… Don’t tell anyone but, I stole my big sister’s Pokemon!” He looked at you with intense seriousness.
“And I stole her binoculars too…” He turned over the broken binoculars in his hands, tears started welling up in his eyes again. He took a deep breath, then looked at you and your Pokemon, pointing to each of you individually as he told you his plan. “Since you broke them, you have to help me. My sister is gonna be real mad but I think if I catch her a rare bird Pokemon she’ll forgive me. I’ve never caught a Pokemon before, but you’re actually a trainer so you’ll do it for me!”

Kingler and Throh look to you for a response. Sure, this kid was pretty annoying, but maybe you could get him out of your hair quickly if you caught him the Pokemon he was after?

-----------
Raves: The group of teens began to calm down, wrapping up the injured girls arm and administering medicine to her fainted Pignite. You could still feel them eyeing you, but there were more important things to focus on. You and your Pokemon’s attention was now fully on the newcomer. The little thief scrambled around you and Totsuka followed, utilizing her control over shadows to lock the Buneary in place. The Buneary began to shake, rapidly twitching its ears as it attempted to come up with what to do next. As Totsuka approached, it thrust one of its fists forward to Pound the Shadow Zangoose, only to find that its ability to do so was Disabled. Totsuka towered over the tiny Normal-type, ready to teach it a lesson. Buneary looked up with Baby-Doll Eyes, hoping to reduce the power of any further attacks.

The world went dark for the Buneary as Golestandt slowly reached down and picked it up. The Buneary struggled and squeaked trying a variety of Quick Attacks and Frustrated kicks to free itself from the Golurk’s grip. The ghost type was unfazed, only watching as the Buneary Splashed with no effect. Suddenly, the Normal type stopped moving, looking straight into your Golurk’s glowing eyes. The Buneary had the Foresight to find away around Golestandt’s Ghost typing, and successfully landed a hit in Frustration. Golestandt opened its hand in shock and pain, setting the Buneary free, but also sending it in a rapid descent from the Golurk’s height.

Maskerade: Your patience was growing thin. The combination of a rolling Komala, a floundering Golett, and the creaking of your armor every time you moved was just about driving you crazy. This had to end, and the only way was to gain as much control you could over this dream sequence. Pahallah looked ready, and you gave the go ahead to evolve. The light and energy from the evolution was enough to draw the Komala’s attention, even though her eyes were firmly shut. She rolled as far away as she could in the tiny bedroom, but Pahallah’s new form took up almost all the available space. The Golurks’ head scraped the ceiling, rocks and dust raining down on you and clanking against your helmet.

Pahallah held out one of its giant hands, a Psychic glow surrounding it. The same glow surrounded the rolling Komala, stopping her in her tracks. Pahallah lifted the Komala up to its face, then leaned forward for a true love’s kiss. The dream world seemed to slow down as the Komala was slowly forced to smooch your Golurk. Komala’s lips touched Pahallah’s, and everything erupted into sparkles. You heard a soft giggle and the Komala’s room faded away.

Your vision cleared, and you found yourself sitting in the shade of a tree in a pleasant countryside. This time, you were dressed slacks, a dress shirt, and vest, reminiscent of a young boy in the Victorian era. A quick movement caught your eye, and you turned to see a pure white Bunnelby looking right at you. Its nose and ears twitched, and it seemed to smile at you before disappearing to a foxhole right beneath the tree. You felt the overwhelming urge to follow it.

The young trainer didn’t look at you as you knelt down beside him and explained your behavior. You held out a bandana for him to blow his nose, and he grabbed it quickly out of your hand.

“I…I didn’t mean to be so mean to Clarence…” He sniffed, wiping copious amounts of snot into your bandana before handing it back. He pulled out Clarence’s Pokeball and returned him with a sigh. “He’s not even mine… Don’t tell anyone but, I stole my big sister’s Pokemon!” He looked at you with intense seriousness.
“And I stole her binoculars too…” He turned over the broken binoculars in his hands, tears started welling up in his eyes again. He took a deep breath, then looked at you and your Pokemon, pointing to each of you individually as he told you his plan. “Since you broke them, you have to help me. My sister is gonna be real mad but I think if I catch her a rare bird Pokemon she’ll forgive me. I’ve never caught a Pokemon before, but you’re actually a trainer so you’ll do it for me!”

Kingler and Throh look to you for a response. Sure, this kid was pretty annoying, but maybe you could get him out of your hair quickly if you caught him the Pokemon he was after?

Hugo took the snot-filled bandana between his index finger and thumb, holding it as far away from his body as possible. He could literally feel the huge wad load of mucous weighing it down. He reached it back to the kid.

“You know what, why don’t you just go ahead and keep this.” He turned to Kingler and held out his hands. “A little help here?”

The giant crab blew a light jet of water onto Hugo’s hands, rinsing them clean. Without the bandana to dry them, Hugo wiped his hands dry on his own shorts.

“Right, so,” Hugo said turning back to the kid, “you snagged the binoculars and the Pokemon from your sister.”

His internal monologue was going wild. Sister, eh? How old was this sister? Was she Hugo’s age? And into merciful trainers who DON’T murder little brothers? Yes, perhaps she would see him and be swept away by his courage and compassion. Or you could be getting a head of yourself and she too could be a child or just a real pain in the ass. Seems like it might be something that runs in the family. And then the part about the rare bird Pokemon stuck in his head. Hugo could help catch this kid a Pokemon. Or he could catch it and keep it for himself. He could decide later.

“So you’re after a rare bird Pokemon, eh? That will save you from your sister? I’m a little brother myself, I know your pain. Let’s walk and talk.”

Hugo helped the kid to his feet and began his trek through the forest, Kingler and Throh in tow.

((As a disclaimer, I'm really enjoying the adventure so far! Don't let the way I roleplay this character tell you any different!))


Hush hadn't felt as happy since the day he'd unleashed Dominion.exe on the world and ended that war. Only this time that happiness didn't stem from some grand sense of accomplishment, but rather sheer relief. When the literal weight of the ridiculous suit of armour was lifted from his shoulders, Hush knew Pahaliah had done it, somehow, and the goddamn ordeal of kissing a koala princess was finally over.

As a reward, he got a white Bunnelby.

Oh you little shit...

It seemed the Trial wasn't, in fact, over. Primrose was still going to throw some more folk tales his way that would make him look like a fool - quite literally in this instance as he was dressed as the village idiot. This wasn't a Trial, it was torture, and if war had taught Hush anything, it was that torture was only fun on other people.

Pahaliah stood next to him, as tall as the tree itself. The giant scanned the surrounding countryside with visible curiosity, possibly trying to compute how the entire landscape changed so drastically, so quickly. But Hush knew this particular fairytale as well, and in this case, he would not be able to rely on the gargantuan machine just yet. He recalled the Golurk back into his Ball, then stared absent-mindedly at the rabbit hole through which Bunnelby had escaped. He knew what Primrose wanted him to do next, but he really didn't want to give the child that satisfaction.

Not that I have a choice, he admitted to himself bitterly. He got up and walked towards the hole, wondering who of his partners, if any, would be able to keep up with what he assumed was about to happen. He dropped to one knee and examined the entrance.

There better be a shitload of magic mushrooms down there.

Picking Oran Berries seems to be pretty straight forward, so you decide to put your Machop Nani to work. After you finish explaining what she needs to do, Nani confidently walks over to the bushes and grabs one of the empty buckets near Ringo and you watch for a few seconds to confirm that she is having no problems which certainly seems to be the case as she plucks berries one by one.

With that task being taken care of, you can now focus on helping Isaac, who certainly appears to need more help than Ringo at the moment. Isaac was standing there with his knees shaking, watching in horror as four Combee’s were beginning to dodge the farms Herdier and make their way towards him. Bently was already preparing his Weather Ball which was absorbing the power of the sun and transforming into a ball of fire that was hurled at the Combee’s. The ball went right for them and since the Combee’s weren’t paying any attention to you at all, it hit three out of four of them easily. (Bently gains 1 level) “Huh!?” Isaac looked toward you and your Pokemon. One Combee who took most of the hit was knocked out of the air and was regaining it’s bearings. The other two were slightly charred but their attention was now 100% on you and your Pokemon. Even the one who wasn’t hit was now charging forward.

Bently was prepared for this and began to release his Acid Spray on the group. “W-wait! D-don’t hurt them!” Isaac was finally mobile again and nearly leaped in front of the Combee to protect them but some of the acid hit his boots which were now sizzling as they began to melt causing him to fumble to the ground and rip off his boots before the acid reached his feet. All four of the Combee that had been charging in were hit by the acid and cried out in anger, in that moment all of them together began to whip up a large Gust. It was at that exact moment that Dutchess used her Mimic to copy Bently’s Acid Spray and was throwing more acid in of her own. However, the Gust was created by 4 Pokemon and was very strong so the acid was sent right back to where it came from, drenching both Dutchess and Bently while also causing both of them to lose their footing and tumble backwards quite a distance, you somehow manage to keep your balance but not without some difficulty. “T-the Combee are not so bad!! You don’t have to fight!!” Isaac was nervously shouting with worry knowing that his mistake has caused a fight to break out. Then, after regaining her footing, Dutchess let out a loud cry using her Hyper Voice, knocking the Combee who had dealt with the worst of the Weather Ball out of the air it seems to be unconscious but there are still three left charging forward. (Dutchess gains 2 levels)

“Cherrrrrrr!!!???!” Suddenly you hear a strange cry from behind you causing you to glance back. That’s when you notice Nani proudly staring at the bucket she was filling which now as a Cherubi crammed into it, its body filling the buckets opening so completely that you wouldn’t be surprised if it was now stuck in the bucket, it also seems to be flailing about and Ringo appeared to be oblivious. Suddenly a Sweet Scent fills your nose and there is no doubt that it’s coming from those Combee. You also notice Granny calmly watching everything that’s happening from a safe distance with what seems to be an amused look on her face.
This should have been simple, like most things. This was supposed to be a nice and simple place, for a simple adventure, but Alice wasn't allowed nice things like that. She reeled back as the acid was deflected, glad that at least none had gotten on her. Bentley looked ticked off, glowering at his shiny partner's failure. Dutchess didn't seem too discouraged, though. She had shaken the acid from her sparkling black fur and downed a Combee with ease, so what was the problem?

"Keep out of the way or you're going to get hurt! We can heal them up after their tantrum if it's such a problem!" Alice snapped at Isaac, just as the Cherubi began crying out. The idol let a quiet curse let slip. "Come on, Nani... Seriously?!" The Machop blinked, the pride on her face falling. She glanced down at the Cherubi. Did it not count? "Get the poor thing out of there, and be careful about it! You might need to loosen the rim of the bucket with berry juice to get the Cherubi loose. Only actual berries, no more Pokemon in that bucket!"

Dutchess barked, regaining Alice's attention. She sighed. "Bentley, use your Weather Balls again! Dutchess, Mimic them! And try not to hit the boy." Alice added. It was bad enough his boots were ruined, she didn't need a person set on fire. They did just get here. In time, both Pokemon began charging spheres of increasing red-orange heat while in the background Nani began reaching for more berries to lather her hands and lubricate the bucket with. Hopefully no living ones this time...
