Sunflora Slumbering Wilds Gym

Slumbering Wilds Gym

In the open ocean, on the very outskirts of Fizzytopia, a previously untouched landmass stands solitary among the deep blue, a striking canopy of lush green foliage. Appropriately named the Slumbering Wilds, the island is home to a dense jungle, the serene isolation pierced jarringly by the towering oppression of the surrounding trees, every one an ancient behemoth. Despite this, at the dead centre of the island lies two peculiar clearings, each perfectly round but varying drastically in size. Within the first can be found a haphazardly cobbled together hut, littered with cutting edge monitoring equipment, pieces strewn about clumsily yet creating a sense of ordered chaos. Behind this is a much larger clearing - uprooted trees scattered prolifically makes it clear that this is a dangerous place, one to be wary of treading lightly.

The Bartender had come reluctantly to his newfound position. When the posting had been made by Fizzytopian admin, his initial reaction was one of disbelief and disgust. His need for anonymity was paramount, a necessity for escape from his previous life. However, Sweeney more often than not was dragged along by the machinations of his Pokemon. Inevitably, Sophie and Marco heard the news, and the pair were steadfast - rarely did they ever act in concert, and yet here they were resolute. With great apprehension and a determination to leave most of the work to Sophie, The Bartender answered the call - on the singular condition that he never be expected to remove his helmet. While he certainly had some interest in the Power Spot, it paled in comparison to the scholastic intrigue of Sophie, and his desire for adventure would always fall short of Marco's. Both combined were enough for him to decide to take up residence in the Wilds though, for better or for worse.

A thunderous rumbling echoed through the clearing as darkened clouds roll in overhear. Gathering quickly and flecked with crimson lightning, the localised storm was a definitive indicator of the Dynamax phenomenon - and sure enough, pandemonium was unfolding nearby. Scattered Pokemon desperately shifted from reading to reading, trying to make sense of the equipment while their trainer supervised, seemingly out of his depth. With comedic timing, Marco trips, slamming harshly into a nearby piece of equipment and leaving it sputtering with sparks. Fortunately for Sweeney, Sophie - rolling her eyes in the process - wanders over to the flickering laptop, manipulating the keys with her telekinesis.

[Raid Boss: Slumbering Wilds]
Category 3 Pumpkaboo approaching. Requesting urgent support, 4 trainers necessary.

As the message is broadcast, a pair of glowing yellow eyes peer above the canopy of the surrounding trees, a beaming fanged mouth delighting in the inevitable destruction.

It was, to say the least, not the easiest thing for Keith and Willa to get used to what had happened, having been sent a decade into the past. It was a fairly major adjustment to suddenly be ten years older than their close friends, and explaining the situation again and again got repetitive after a while. But that's not to say they were looking for a way to undo this; on the contrary, the Masterses were in agreement that what had happened appeared to be for the best. Keith and Willa hadn't actually caught any Pokémon in the first ten years of their marriage, so they weren't suddenly missing out on any recently-made friends; they were back in a point of time before Keith knew a car would hit Sirius, which he saw as a second chance to ensure they could avoid this tragedy this time around; Maribel had been homeschooled, and didn't have much of any friends outside of Sludge Wave Coast before the time distortion brought her back along with her parents. Whether all of this was just happy coincidence or whether Luna, Jack, and Selia sought to make it so so as to ensure that this was the best outcome all around, this did indeed feel like the best outcome all around. And already, inexplicably, the family had noticed a number of differences in this new tangent of the timeline.

"Pumpkaboo raid, huh?" Keith murmured, checking the email his PokéGear had received. "I don't remember there being one of these, either."

"Nor I," Willa commented. "The timeline really has changed somehow, hasn't it?"

"I'm not sure I'll ever understand how or why, but yeah," Keith nodded with a chuckle. "Do you want to take this one, dear?"

Willa smiled and shook her head politely. "It's been so long since we've gotten to see you in action," she said. "You take this one."

"Yeah, Dad!" came Maribel's voice. Keith couldn't help but smile as his daughter entered the living room. "Pumpkaboo's a Grass-type, so your Poison-types'll be great, right?"

"Well, don't forget, sweetie, Pumpkaboo's also a Ghost-type, just like Phantump," Keith reminded her. "That being said, a Poison-type would still have kind of an advantage, it'd resist the Grass moves... But what to use? Maybe Ricin, he hasn't had a good battle in a while-"

"Saur! Pumpkasaur!"

Keith looked down, chuckling- his Pumpkasaur was running circles around him, Jack-o-Lantern face lit up in eager anticipation. "Y'know, I should've guessed," he grinned.

Meowth piped up. "Autumn's sayin' she wants ta prove ta da big Pumpkaboo dat she's the better pumpkin Pokémon," he translated.

"Oh, that'd be cool!" smiled Maribel. "Autumn would do great against a Pumpkaboo!" This elicited a cheerful smile from the Pumpkasaur, moreso as Maribel proceeded to pet her, not even deterred as that strange eerie laugh echoed all around, though everyone got a good chuckle at how much it freaked Meowth out.

"Then it's settled," Keith declared, clutching Autumn's Pumpkin Ball in his hand. "Autumn, let's show that Pumpkaboo who the better pumpkin really is!"

"Pumpka~" smiled Autumn.

Bio:
Keith was not one of five lucky winners in a raffle held by Arnold of the old Elite Four, and thus did not come to own one of only five Pumpkasaur known to exist then. However, many years later, he spotted one in the wild, and followed it, coming across a hidden clearing deep in the forest where Pumpkasaur lived in the wild. One of them warmed up to him instantly, though the others took some convincing that he meant no harm. Eventually, the first one to warm up to him was allowed to leave and join Keith's team, and he eagerly welcomed the new species onto his team. Autumn has a mostly pleasant disposition, though as Keith has noted, exhibits noticeably different behavior from Bulbasaur. He is, however, unsure as to whether these differences are inherent to the Pumpkasaur species, or merely Autumn's own personal quirks. For one thing, though she will take sunlight into her bulb for energy like a Bulbasaur, she seems to vastly prefer moonlight, and will be at her happiest on the night of a full moon. For another thing, the jack-'o-lantern face on her bulb will occasionally change, unfailingly whenever nobody is actually looking, and the new face will generally reflect Autumn's mood- when she is displeased with something, the face will glow red and become an angry scowl. Occasionally, eerie laughter can be heard echoing around wherever she might be, with no one point identifiable as the source of the laughter, and said laughter never seems to bother Autumn. She gets along with her teammates well enough for the most part (partiularly Pomona and Dennis), though some of them fear her.

Description
Spoiler: show
During a camping trip up in the mountains, Curtis was cooking some sort of nut and beef curry for his team. The smell of which attracted an Absol. He got a bowl and very carefully lured the rare Pokemon out of the brush surrounding the camp so he could get a good look at it. To his dismay, it looked like the poor creature hadn't been getting enough to eat! After it gobbled up the first serving of food Curtis had given it, he gave it another and another all the while luring it closer and closer until Toby was able to put it to sleep with Sing. From there it was a simple matter of catching it in a Pokeball and trekking back down the mountain with his new friend.

At first when the young Absol came too inside Curtis's house, he was very confused to find himself awakening in the middle of a cuddle pile. Though when Curtis came in to check on them, the sound of the door opening surprised the Absol- causing him to bolt and, in his rush to find somewhere to hide, ending up getting stuck under the couch. Over the next few days, this pattern repeated itself in various ways with the young Absol, not at all used to domesticated life, getting spooked at various household noises and at Curtis or the other Pokemon simply moving around the house. Eventually he did get more used to living in a house with a bunch of other rowdy Pokemon, but he still gets surprised by things fairly easy. Due to this behaviour of being 'spooked' by nearly everything over the first few days, Curtis has named the Absol "Spooky". Though Curtis has found the Absol yowling at him and desparately trying to get his attention before something goes wrong in the house- such as one time when Finnegan and Toby were trying to figure out how the stove worked or when Jin had gotten himself trapped in the fridge. It seems that the main 'disasters' Spooky is preventing are the ones caused by the various shenanigans that the other Pokemon in Curtis's team get up to.

- - - - -

Curtis was taking a rest on his couch to watch a silly Halloween comedy movie with his Pokemon when the monthly raid alerts rolled in. He took his attention off of the movie and to his phone, keeping an eye out for the three star raids this time around. Huh? It seemed that there was only one this time around, but that made things simple (and bless the poor souls who were going up against that Gigantamax Eevee). Now who to bring... both Spooky and Helena would be effective options but the Absol frankly needed the battle experience more than the Houndour did.

He tapped a out a response on his phone, signing up himself and Spooky the Absol to show up for battle in a few days time and got back to watching the movie, "Hey Spooky, just signed you up for a three star raid tomorrow, just so you know." While Curtis quickly forget about that due to getting distracted by the movie, Spooky tensed up and started getting stressed out anticipating his upcoming battle.

- - -

The next morning, Spooky was acting strange. He'd never seen the Absol actually get involved in the roughhousing that quite a few of the others liked to get involved in. No, wait- it wasn't quite that. Alexander and Spooky were... training? Spooky was practicing getting various scratches and kicks and slashes with his horn-blade in while Alexander was standing there and blocking the hits and barking back advice. Where had the little guy learned all these fighting moves though? It must've Daycare right or maybe the Lucario line is just born with this instinctive fighting knowledge? Considering how strange Pokemon are, Curtis couldn't actually rule out the latter.

Then the two Pokemon noticed Curtis watching them, spurring Alexander to go off and... fetch Curtis's phone from where it had fallen into the couch and give to his Trainer. "Oh, thanks, I didn't even notice..." Unlocking the screen, he was greeted with his signup message and things began to click in his half-asleep brain. "Oh, oh crap! Can't believe I forgot!"

Now what Spooky had been doing made perfect sense, he was getting ready for his first big battle! Curtis smiled and gave the Absol a pat on the head, "Don't worry, you'll do great! Now how about you and Alexander get back to it while I make us some food, yeah?"

Since evolving from Starly, he has developed a greater love for battling, and grew extremely fast and powerful for his species. Whether this newfound strength comes from his aura treatment is yet to be known.
