He had to ignore that for now, he just needed to focus on getting to the end as quick as he could. That said, he'd struggle to make it there if the Fearow had any say in it. The pair of newly evolved birds were relentless, they were extremely territorial. Vine just had to keep them far enough away....

With the sun still shining brightly on him, Vine whips up a Leaf Tornado, that forces the Fearow back, but only for a moment. They whip their powerful wings together, creating a tremendous Whirlwind! The wind cuts through the Leaf Tornado with ease and drives Vine forward, propelling him towards the end of the leg!

Seeing Vine close in, Cirrus drifts down to his starting position, ready for the Grass types arrival. Pidgeot shoots the Swablu a look as it lands on a nearby branch before both crane their necks back, looking at the forest with anticipation.

Vine leaps from the trees, landing on the soft ground as he sprints towards the old tree by the mountainside. His legs ache, his chest heaves, but he knows he is almost there. There was no sign of Emolga, Pidgeot was still on the tree....... He was in the lead! He reaches out and touches the tree, letting out a triumphant cry as he does so. Taking that as his cue, Cirrus takes off with a burst of agility, wings beating as he quickly rises upwards. Emolga finally emerges from the forests, webs still streaming from him as he makes his way towards the finish. Cirrus had an early lead thanks to Vine, but Pidgeot would be hot on his tail soon. How would he proceed?

Vine gained 3 levels!
The end was in sight! Now all Vine had to do was reach it. With a pair of Fearow on his tail. Greaaat.

He glanced backwards to check how far the birds were and then turned around on his next leap, whipping his tail to kick up a Tornado of Leaves to try to force them back. And it worked, briefly, but only for a moment. The next, they beat their wings and kicked up a Whirlwind that tore straight through Vine's Leaf Tornado and then picked him up to push him further toward the end. Vine stumbled, losing his footing for a beat as he adjusted to the unintentional help, but recovered and raced towards the tree marking his end of the relay.

He spotted Cirrus coming in to land on the tree, exchanging looks with the Emolga's teammate and Cirrus nodding in acknowledgement, before the Swablu trilled encouragement at him. Vine rolled his eyes--and his head to emphasize the gesture--to imply "What does it look like I'm doing?" as he leaped from the trees to the ground separating the forest from the old tree.

Cirrus chirped an amused response as Vine approached at a dead sprint, clearly taking advantage of the fact that his leg of the relay was almost done and his opponent was nowhere in sight. The moment Vine slapped a hand against the tree, Cirrus beat his wings and took off, Agilely dodging past leafless branches as he turned for the peak. Another Agility probably wouldn't hurt and then he'd Fly for the peak, Cutting through the Air as best he could as he went.

Vine watched Cirrus take off, taking a moment to catch his breath, and glanced back as Jet's Emolga burst through the trees. Heh, looked like he didn't actually make a mistake, deciding to go over the top, even if it ended up with him getting chased by a pair of Fearow. Turning around until he spotted the hot air balloon, Vine waved up at his trainer to recall him, so he could watch from above.

---

Melissa watched Cirrus fly down to the old tree where Jet's Pidgeot awaited and turned her attention to where Vine was struggling against the Fearow.

"Huh." She blinked as Vine threw a Tornado at the Fearow only to get a Whirlwind back, which pushed him further ahead. "Well. That was...fortunate."

"Cyn da quil quil?" Wildfire wryly asked, watching Vine leap from the forest's edge for the ground.

"Not very high, but hey, good for us, right?"

Melissa grinned as Vine slapped the tree and Cirrus took off, glancing at Jet to check the Trial Captain's reaction, before turning back to look over the situation. Seeing Vine wave up at her, she called him back and then let him out again when it seemed like he wanted to spectate too.

"Very nice job," she told him and Vine preened, still just slightly out of breath.


Vine goes from Lv. 32 to 35.

Myahoo- The first leg of the trial was already complete and low and behold, you had the lead! How long you'd retain it was unsure, Pidgeot looked powerful, but Cirrus would do his best not to squander the lead that Vine had secured him. He'd already taken off, the Swablu was quickly gaining altitude, continuing to increase his speed with Agility. He's able to put a good bit of distance between himself and Pidgeot before Emolga reaches the tree, but Pidgeot is quick off the mark. The entire tree groans as the Kantonian native takes off with a powerful beat of its wings, quickly climbing upward. Cirrus focuses on maintaining his lead, but in his haste, he flies straight into a thermal!

A cold pocket of air has blown across from the snowy fields of Delibird Ridge, mixing with the hot air to create a brutal swirl of air currents. Cirrus struggles to keep steady doing his best to fly through the turbulence but his small stature leaves him at the mercy of the crazy current. His slowed advance is a boon for Pidgeot, who is quickly gaining ground, driven by a powerful Tailwind.

Drifblim rises up the mountainside, allowing you to keep track of the two rising birds. Vine seems a bit disgruntled as he watches Cirrus struggle against the thermals, the lead he'd gained was slowly slipping away. The Swablu needed to act quickly if it was going to get itself out of this one, it just needed a way to counter the mix of cold and hot air.

The Swablu needed to act quickly if it was going to get itself out of this one, it just needed a way to counter the mix of cold and hot air.
Cirrus climbed quickly, accelerating with Agility and opening up the distance between himself and Jet's Pidgeot. Behind him, he caught the sound of the Pidgeot's powerful wings taking off and Cirrus pushed himself a little more. Unfortunately, it meant he wasn't paying enough attention to the air current in front of him and he ran straight into turbulence.

He whistled in surprise when he abruptly dropped a few feet and then found himself buffeted left and right. He struggled to keep steady, but his unfortunately-small size and his lack of Hidden Ability meant he was fighting the air currents the whole way. He didn't dare glance back, worried that even turning his head would knock him off course, but Pideot's wingbeats were quickly approaching.

Cirrus took a deep breath. He hadn't wanted to try this--mostly because he wasn't entirely sure it would work and the middle of a competition didn't seem like the best place to test it--but he didn't want to let his team down, so he blew out a Wave of Heat to warm the air around him. Hopefully, that could help calm the air currents into something that would buoy him up instead of throw him around. If not, he'd Pursue his opponent and piggyback on their Tailwind until he spotted an opportunity to overtake them. Probably Mirror that Tailwind Move also, since he unfortunately didn't have it himself.

---

"Oof, he's really struggling, huh?" Melissa said, watching Cirrus fight the invisible air currents.

"Quil quil cyndaquil," Wildfire pointed out. "Cyndaquil cynda."

"Sni sni vy sni," Vine muttered, looking unhappy.

"Quil cynda cyndaquil quil." Wildfire turned to Vine, voice short.

"He does look like he has an idea." Melissa pointed out how Cirrus seemed to be bracing himself. "Just gotta see how it plays out."

Wildfire and Vine glanced at each other unhappily and turned back to watch their teammate over the edge of the basket.

Myahoo- Cirrus was struggling against the powerful and unpredictable air currents and Pidgeot was quickly reclaiming ground, or more accurately, sky. You watch from your position in Drifblim's basket, hoping that Cirrus will be able to find a work around.

The Swablu beats its wings, releasing fire energy to increase the air temperature around him. The Heat Wave helps to overpower the cold air current from the icy slopes, Cirrus finally steadies and begins to surge forward once more. It isn't enough though, Pidgeot is still closing in. The bigger, more powerful bird was having no issues with the turbulent currents and its Tailwind was giving it some extra speed. Cirrus could see the benefit in the Tailwind as well, so he decides to copy the manoeuvre with a Mirror Move! The Swablu lets out a cheerful cry as feels the wind sweep up from beneath him, driving him up into a ring of clouds concealing the peak.

You lose sight of Cirrus as he disappears into the clouds and Pidgeot soon after. Their vision would likely be impaired within the thick cloud as well. Drifblim picks up the pace, rising quickly through the clouds. Sweeping around the side of the mountain, a large ledge comes into view. "The final leg will start from that ledge over there. It's a straight drop down into the canyon below. As Swablu emerges through the clouds, your Fletchling can begin its descent." Jet explained before tossing out a Pokeball, releasing his Talonflame. The fire bird soars through the air, sweeping around to land on the ledge, ready for Pidgeot to emerge.

Jess needed to act quickly as the Shiinotic began to prepare its next move. She called out orders to Lance and Iris as they got a short moment to catch their breaths from the previous round. There was little time to waste however, and they quickly prepared themselves to attack. Iris jumped into the air and flipped her small larva body, creating a sharp gust of wind that sliced through the air. Lance chimed in, channeling some supernatural energy through his sapling body and unleashed it upon the Shiinotic. The pair of attacks collided, but not with their intended target as the bipedal mushroom finished constructing a Light Screen barrier to absorb the attacks.

Frustrated by the futility of their combined efforts, Iris adjusted her tactics to a more physical approach, charging in for a Bug Bite while Lance switched back to dousing the Shiinotic with a very potent Sludge Bomb, even if the Light Screen did take the brunt of the damage. Shiinotic hissed angrily and released a ball of light that hovered in the air. The Ray of Confusion shot forward, but did not hit either Iris nor Lance; instead the bright lights swirled around Comfey who was groggily roused by the bright lights.

As Comfey opened its eyes, it let out a sad wail. In Comfey’s eyes, standing before it was its friend the Flabébé, and while it appeared much taller than usual it looked badly injured. The flower wreath emitted a gentle breeze of flower petals that surrounded the Shiinotic, Comfey’s Floral Healing doing wonders for Jess’s opponent. All of the Morelull spectating the battle began to chuckle incessantly. This was not looking good; not only were its defenses already high and gradually absorbing nutrients from the earth, the odds were now stacked even higher against them as Comfey assisted it in its confused state. Continuing to fight this way would eventually just wear down Iris and Lance in vain. As Jess watched the turn of events unfold with the unconscious Flabébé in hand, maybe there was some other way that they could turn the tide of this struggle back in their favor.


mespiritchaser:
As Revel and Chachi looked to take cover and heal up while planning their next move, Applin Rolled Out after them in pursuit, striking Chachi in the back before they were able to conceal themselves behind the trees. With the battlefield unattended, Applin stopped its tantrum and went back to eating the Leppa Berries off the ground. They were almost all gone now, and Revel and Chachi wouldn’t have much left to show for all of their work from earlier.

Meanwhile, as Ringo pursued the Bounsweet and Cherubi thieves, she stopped and observed as they stood at the trunk of a large tree and skillfully hopped with their quarry into the air. As they did so a pair of hands reached down from the branches of the densely-leafed tree and pulled them in. “What the?” Ringo wondered in disbelief as she hurried up to the tree. “Who’s up there?” she called out as she began to climb up the tree trunk, no stranger to climbing trees.

Back at Revel and Chachi’s side of the orchard, the pair had enough of their efforts being squandered away by the insatiable Applin. Still wiping the dirt off his chest, Chachi charged back into battle as he knocked Applin over with a Surf and then froze the unsuspecting worm with an Icy Wind that was very effective. Applin didn’t even bother fighting back as there seemed to be a desperation in its eyes as it kept scarfing down Leppa Berries. It seemed to be frantically searching for something, and none of these Leppa seemed to be what it was looking for. As Chachi slammed into it with an Aerial Ace, Applin’s frustration boiled over and it began to cry. Surely there was a reason behind its actions, and it was determined to accomplish its task whether the trainer and Piplup were going to stand in its way or not. As Revel took in everything that was unfolding, her concentration was broken as the scream of a teenage girl echoed from the distance.

As Jess watched the turn of events unfold with the unconscious Flabébé in hand, maybe there was some other way that they could turn the tide of this struggle back in their favor.
As Iris somersaulted and sliced through the air, Lance simultaneously sent a sensory wave spiraling towards the opponent; storm and stress swirling together in combination, colliding. ...Not with flesh, but filtered glass. The Shiinotic smiled smugly as it sat snug behind its freshly erected screen, subverting Jess's expectations by sieving any special attacks rather than status.

Thus the Sewaddle switched to a more primitive ploy, hurtling headforth at her adversary and sinking her small but sharp teeth into the soft mushroom stalk. Lance followed suit by firing another sphere of sludge, dousing the cap again in venom (even if most of it was absorbed by the barricade). Shiinotic grimaced and responded by releasing its own orb of radiance, which spun forward like a Catherine Wheel - torturous not to body, but the mind.

However, like before, the projectile seemed to miss its intended targets - instead erupting over Comfey, who woke in a daze to see such dazzling fireworks. The lights rained down over Shiinotic's form, hiding it in haze as Comfey rubbed her eyes, blinking as she believed she recognized her friend (albeit grown significantly compared to norm) crying out in pain. Wafting her wreath, Comfey quickly blessed the false "Flabébé" with a soothing shower of medicinal petals. The surrounding Morelull spectators all snickered at the successful ruse leading to their boss's recovery, as Jess frowned and gripped onto the genuine unconscious flower in her arms, glaring at the gross rose that had stolen its name.

Turning her gaze to the confused conductor turned against them, the girl gulped as she racked her brains for a way out of this mess... When all of a sudden she remembered a certain item held in her possession - part of a penta-colored set she'd spent care and time towards collecting in full. Mentally running rapid over each section of the rainbow as she struggled to recall which shade did what, she reached into her bag until her fingers found the five flutes, selecting a sunny hue from among them. While it would hopefully solve one of her immediate problems, there was still the barrier to contend with... On the other hand, while it did shield their foe from direct damage, it also left wide open to other options she had previously considered foregone.

"Okay, guys, here's what we're gonna do: Iris, you use TOXIC on Shiinotic, and try again to CUT those roots. Lance, I want you to attempt another GROWTH in order to overcome that screen, then follow up with VENOSHOCK. Meanwhile, I'm gonna try to get Comfey to snap out of it with this."

With that, Jess raised the Yellow Flute to her lips (praying her past clarinet lessons as a kid would suffice to produce a somewhat decent sound), and began to play.

Sunflora Cloud Garden - 1o

Rose Garden

Slash: What better way to while away the afternoon than as the guests of honour at a teddy bear’s picnic? You elicit a squee as the wild bear cubs jump into the festivities one by one, each with an offering in paw. Teddiursa is first to plod forward, dropping a Jar of Honey – its paws were sticky and raw with fresh Beedrill stings, painting no doubt that the nectareous delight was fresh, organic and locally produced! Cubchoo was next off the bat, the sniffily polar bear sheepishly presenting a homemade delicacy, scoops of snow which looked just like the Cones you would find in Castelia, sans for the slimy yellow syrup topping… As for Pancham, it hadn’t prepared anything at all, although it did find a cool set of bamboo sticks which would be good for Beating someone Up with.

With an assortment of colourful sides it was up to you to handle the chef-d'oeuvre, a curry that would knock the bears’ socks off! You quickly set your team to work as you rummage for ingredients, opting to use a choicer assortment of berries in place of the ones Bewear had plucked. You place the cooking pot a wide berth from the tree stump so not to spread a bushfire, sending Lemon off to fetch firewood through help of his bucktooth. It’s not long until he returns with a handful of perfectly gnawed dry logs, helping you stack them in a pyramid beneath the pot – now you just needed a spark. Terri sends forth a Thunderbolt right on que, the strike enough to ignite the campfire.

You attempt to nurture the infant flame with more wood, giving it a prod with a stick for good measure - Pancham lends a heavy hand too, smacking the flame with a bamboo shoot. It seemed to die in response as if a little as if unsure of itself, unready to devour the new offerings. For a while it licked at the logs nervously and sent feeble sparks to peter away in the air - but before long it found its confidence, orange flames dancing until the heat warmed your hands and paws. Lemon helps you in stoking the flame and then some, Psysplitting to triple his tail-fanning efforts. The sudden multiplication of the Watchog is enough to startle Cubchoo, tail tucked between its legs as it cowers behind Bewear who can do all but chuckle in response.

With the campfire crackling it was time to make a start on the curry, sautéing the berries and pre-cooked burger until a sweet-savory aroma wafted through the camp, Teddiursa’s mouth watering as he homed in on the delicious scent – putting its paw up for the job of taste tester. With the base flavour at a satisfying sizzle you pry open the can of coconut milk and spill its contents out, transforming the dish into a thick sauce. You allow it to come to a boil before adding your special ingredient - a Golden Pokeblock - which dissolves into the mixture like a stock cube. You finally add the pack of instant noodles, setting the dish to a simmer while Cupid dutifully stirred, wings beating to produce a gentle Fairy Wind.




Sweet and Spicy Medley Curry
Feed this curry to three of your Pokemon to raise their bond by 3 points each.

You allow about twenty minutes for the ingredients to tenderise and infuse with flavour – Teddiursa sopping up some of the curry in his paw for the preliminary test, a wide-eyed thumbs up indicating its seal of approval. With that you haul the camp cookup to the top of the tree stump for serving, the little bears lining up patiently. For lack of plates and cutlery you serve the curry on banana leaves, adopting a hand-to-mouth eating approach the way many dishes in eastern cultures were enjoyed, offering a natural albeit messy tasting experience. The picnic goes off a hit for all parties involved – curry dripping down the bears’ faces as they went in for seconds, then thirds. You noticed Cubchoo would cool down each scoopful with its breath, while Pancham used the sauce as a dip for its bamboo shoots - Teddiursa would simply cram as much food into its mouth as possible, its pot belly swelling as tight as a drum yet still making room for another helping. Shuckle was on hand with refreshments, passing out more of its delicious Berry Juice which had spent the best part of the day fermenting. Taking a first sip of the fruit punch it became clear why it caused so much commotion in the rose garden.

With the camp fed and afternoon running away with itself, you decide it better to check in at a nearby trainer hostel sooner rather than later. The cool breeze was starting to nip at the back of your neck and it would be unwise to spend a night in the Cloud Garden without shelter and a warm bed. While the little bears piled on top of you in efforts to keep you from leaving – Bewear peels them off you in one arm and offers to escort you to the nearby mountain chalets where accommodation awaited. You’re quick to gather your belongings while your Pokemon finished their play, Bewear handing you a doggy bag of Leftovers and a mysterious flyer which must have been looted from one of the nearby villages, on closer inspection it was an invitation to a Bug-Catching Contest in a faraway city:



You’re about to make tracks before the one who had started this chain of events prods your leg once more, the lonely Shuckle’s eyes welling up with tears as his strange playdoh limbs elongate and wrap the entire camp in a warm hug. While not without its hiccups, the day had provided enough light action to sate your appetite for adventure, and more new friends than you could count on one hand. It was sad to say goodbye so soon but despite the immeasurable distance you would never be far apart, for friendship doesn’t count the miles, it’s measured by the heart.


You are awarded 1x Jar of Honey, 1x Castelia Cone, 1x TR Beat Up, 1x Berry Juice and 1x Leftovers. This marks the end of your Cloud Garden adventure, hope you enjoyed the low stakes antics – if you’re ever in the mood for something more longform then take the Bug-Catching Contest Invitation to Amity Gardens in New Fizz City. The invitation is valid for as long as the zone is open, so feel free to venture to another zone first if you prefer.

As the air around him warmed, the turbulence calmed and Cirrus managed to steady his flying, surging forward to try to regain his momentum. He knew his opponent was on his tail and frantically Mirrored the Tailwind Pidgeot had created, cheering when it drove him into the clouds before Pidgeot.

Unfortunately, he was now basically flying blind, since he was neither a bat nor did he have Defog. Which really seemed like an oversight on Melissa's part, now that he thought about it. Well, nothing he could do about it now, so he'd do his best to Fly as hard as he could. Maybe with another Heat Wave to buoy him up to the peak and a Pursuit in case his opponent overtook him.

Hopefully, Zephyr could make up the difference if he did lose the lead, since her leg would be all downhill. All she'd have to do is dive.

---

"You know, I'm realizing that maybe I should've swapped Cirrus' and Zephyr's parts in the relay," Melissa mused aloud, watching as Cirrus disappeared into the clouds.

"Quil quil cyndaquil?" Wildfire asked wryly.

"Pretty much. And Cirrus has Ice Beam, so he could've literally cooled the air around him to help him drop."

"Sni sni vy," Vine said practically, shifting his weight as the hot air balloon picked up speed. "Sni sni vy vy sni vy."

"True," Melissa sighed, gaze catching on the large ledge drifting into view.

"The final leg will start from that ledge over there," Jet said. "It's a straight drop down into the canyon below. As Swablu emerges from the clouds, your Fletchling can begin its descent." He then sent his Talonflame out, the large bird Pokémon soaring through the air to land on the ledge.

Melissa dutifully followed suit, her Fletchling materializing on the basket's wall. Vine immediately began relaying the situation to Zephyr--that he gained them a lead, that Cirrus was probably in the process of losing that lead, and that she'd have to pick up the slack--who mostly listened to him talk with amusement.

When Vine wound down, Melissa tapped Zephyr on the head and gave her a smile. "Just do your best. I'd recommend Tailwind, Agility, and then maybe Fly?" She shrugged. "Or just fold your wings and dive. Whatever works for you."

Zephyr chirped an acknowledgement and a "Wish me luck!" before she took off for the ledge where her evolution waited for their teammate. She settled next to them with a wish good luck for them too and then turned to scan the skies for Cirrus.
