Gary awoke the next day and rubbed the sleep from his eyes. It had been a long night the night before with a meeting full of unexpected guests. The plot with the suspicious casino and missing Pokemon was a heavy one, but it was on the back of Gary’s mind now as he had a growing stable of hungry Pokemon that needed to be fed. He changed into his swimming trunks and a long-sleeved dry suit top and pulled back the curtain on his bedroom window. The sun shined in brightly and he looked around the room. Typhu the Typhlosion lay curled up on the flame-print rug and Espy the Espeon lay at the foot of his bed. “Rise ‘n shine, guys!” he greeted with a smile.

Heading out of his bedroom and into the living room, Gary walked over to the kitchen. Pulling a wide assortment of food to cater to a vast variety of species, Gary left some bales of hay and bowls of leaves for the herbivores, a bowl of mineral-rich rocks for his Larvitar, fruit for the omnivores, and some ground beef for his carnivores. “Food’s ready!” he called out, and on cue a number of Pokemon trickled out of the other room in the back, including a Stantler, Sneasel, Smeargle, and Charizard.

Gary then headed across the hallway into the aquarium room. A Blastoise, Golduck, and Slowpoke had just left the large fountain in the middle and had walked past Gary on their way into the kitchen. With the fountain Pokemon taken care of, Gary walked past the fountain paying it no heed. As Gary approached the large aquarium tank, he smiled as he observed the fish swimming around. There was a Mantine, Alomomola, Kingdra, and Chinchou. “Wait, where’s Pickle?” Gary asked. Sensei the Alomomola swam down to Gary’s eye level on the other side of the glass before swimming over to a rock formation in the back. Alarm instantly swept over Gary out of concern for his young sea cucumber. “I can’t see, is she okay?” he asked to have Sensei nod in response. “Alright, let’s get in there and see what—”

There was a brief knock on the door which interrupted Gary’s train of thought. “Oh shoot, who could it be? Hang on a sec, guys…” Gary hurried over to the front door and opened it. Before him stood a Pelipper with a parcel in its mouth. “Oh! The delivery is here! Prefect, thank you.” Gary grinned and signed the delivery bill which he handed to the Pelipper, who took it and flapped away. Taking the package inside, Gary closed the door and walked over to his desk. “This is perfect timing, guys,” he called out to the Pokemon in the aquarium, “I’ve got a new friend for you to meet.” Gary opened the package, revealing a lone Pokeball that was insulated in padding. Pulling it out, Gary took it and walked past the fountain once again, not noticing the small ripple on the surface of the water.

*BAM* Patches bursts open Gary’s door, pausing only for a moment to catch her breath before continuing to run. The mats jingle only briefly beneath her feet since she manages to get across them quickly. “Gary!!! Have you seen my Totodile!? I haven’t seen him since I was last here!” She doesn’t see Gary when she comes in so she hopes that he can at least hear her. Knowing that she needs to retrace her footsteps she runs to the table where she was gathered with friends on a previous night and after not seeing him out in the open she dives under it. “Gary, he’s not under your table!!!!”

“Chu chuu!” Mio, who had also accompanied Patches today is now trying to get her attention in order to lead her somewhere. Patches bangs her head on the table after crawling back out and trying to stand up, she is so worried that she wasn’t paying attention and stood up a bit too early. Eventually, she manages to actually stand up and is now holding her head where she will probably form a bump later. “Oh, I’m coming Mio.” She follows Mio into another room with a large fountain, Mio hops up onto the edge and points to a small ripple in the water. Patches runs over and looks at the ripple, suddenly Totodile’s head pops up before he happily swims away. “Totodile, you had me worried sick!! Come on, it’s time to go. It’s not nice to impose on other people when you’re a guest.” Says the person who practically just busted down Gary’s door unannounced. The Totodile gives Patches a really sad look before he continues to swim around a bit. “Totodile, you can’t just stay here…” Totodile perks up at the mention of staying and begins to practically dance in the water. “I mean, I know you spend a lot of time in your ball when you’re with me it’s just that I don’t have a whole lot of water like Gary does.” The Totodile gives Patches a pleading look. “I guess I do feel bad that I haven’t been spending a lot of time with you and you do seem really happy here, but it’s not up to me. This is Gary’s house.”

Gary had taken but two steps towards the aquarium when he heard the front door burst open down the hallway followed by the jingle of the music note mats. “What the,” he pondered, turning around, “Who the heck is that?” He wouldn’t get his answer though, as the unexpected guest turned right into the living room. As the visitor darted into the room and crawled under the kitchen table, the Pokemon chowing down on their food looked over out of curiosity. The guest called out to Gary, unable to find what they were looking for, so Raphael the Blastoise turned to face her with a mouth full of lettuce. He simply pointed in the direction of the aquarium room, in which the guest bumped her head and quickly darted in that direction.

As Gary had taken steps toward the hallway to the kitchen to see who was there, he was nearly knocked over by the girl who ran past him and over to the fountain with her Pikachu. “Oh! From last night… you were, uh, Cardia or Patches, right?” He scratched his head as the girl ignored him and started talking to the fountain. He turned around to see what the commotion was about, but then suddenly a Totodile appeared out from underwater in the fountain. “Woah, when did that get here? A Totodile, huh? That really takes me back…” Flashbacks of his youth in Johto ran through his mind when he was a trainer just starting out on his Pokemon journey and a smile crept onto his face. “Is that Totodile yours? He sure is cute.”

Now that Patches has found her missing Pokemon, she finally realizes that Gary is actually present. “Oh, hi Gary! Yeah, this Totodile is mine. Sorry, I didn’t notice you because I was worried sick about him. It looks like I had nothing to worry about though, he seems to be really happy in this fountain…” She hesitates for a moment as she realizes her Totodile actually appears to be pretty at home here. She has never been able to provide him with such a large place to swim that wasn’t a river somewhere and they didn’t find themselves around rivers very often. “Well, I’m sorry about this. I know that this is your home and he didn’t ask to swim in there.” She looked at her Totodile again, he was still giving her a pleading look that says he never wants to leave. “I’m sorry Totodile, it’s just that you’re my Pokemon and this is Gary’s home so you can’t stay here…” She pauses to think for a moment and that’s when she remembers that this place has a slide and she realizes she needs to solve this quick.

“I’ve got it!!!” She digs through her bag and pulls out a pokeball handing it to you. “Totodile doesn’t seem to want to leave and I don’t want my Pokemon imposing upon you, so here! He’s yours now! This way he won’t be imposing since he’s your Pokemon!” She feels really happy knowing that Totodile will never be forced to leave the place he seems to love. Of course, she didn’t really think this entire thing through at all since all she can think about is playing on the slide at this point but, it’s probably still for the best. Wasting no time at all, she runs through the base and starts playing on the slide. Meanwhile, Mio decided that she would visit the kitchen since there seems to be a crowd in there.

Gary was speechless for a few moments as Patches places the Pokeball in his hands. “What?” he asked, dumbfounded. “You’re giving me your Totodile? As in, to keep?” Gary really didn’t know what to say. He looked down at the Totodile who was happily floating in the fountain. It looked back up at him with a big toothy grin. By the time Gary looked back up, Patches had already run off and left the room. Gary took a second look at the Totodile before hurrying off after Patches to make sure this wasn’t some kind of prank.

As he entered the living room and kitchen area, he could already find Patches playing on the big white slide on the far side of the room. Most of Gary’s Pokemon were still eating their food while a few others had finished and begun to go about their business. Scurvy the Aipom hung upside down from a tree branch and stared at the guest, as amused by her unpredictable nature as he was the night before. Typhu the Typhlosion stared at Patches long enough to make sure she wasn’t a threat before going off to nap in Gary’s bedroom. “So, uh, are you sure about this? I mean, I love Totodiles, but don’t you have a history with him or anything?” Gary chuckled nervously, feeling guilty for just taking a Pokemon off of Patches’ hands.

Meanwhile in the kitchen, the visiting Pikachu that accompanied Patches made her rounds to introduce herself. As she did, she came across a small gathering of Pokemon that were chowing down on their food, including Amph, Espy, a Smeargle named Buru, and Lynxa the Sneasel. Pokey Jr the Slowpoke absentmindedly mushed his face against his bowl full of food blissfully unaware of what was going on.

Patches was trying to catch her breath at the top of the slide after exhausting herself from running and climbing her way back up to the top as fast as she could repeatedly. Noticing Gary enter the room she smiles and waves, oblivious to the confused look on his face. “Hey again Gary! Your slide is fun!” She watches as he approaches and listens to his question. “Huh…? Am I sure about Totodile?” Now she’s the one who's confused as she stands there going over the events that have gone down since she got here.

“I found him in your fountain and he seemed really happy. I’m definitely sure of that… Then I remembered you had this amazing slide…” She is still a bit lost until she finally lays her eyes on the pokeball in Gary’s hand. “Oh, that’s right! I said you should keep him, didn’t I? Hmm…” Now that she’s finally taking the time to think this over she slides down to ground level again so that she could walk back over to the fountain. Once she enters the room she sees Totodile happily splashing about in the fountain having a great time. “After seeing how happy Totodile is to be here, yes I’m very sure. He hasn’t had much of an opportunity to be outside of his pokeball since I got him and I have been feeling really guilty about that. He even broke out of his pokeball just to stay here so I think this is where he wants to be. I’m going to miss him but I also want him to be happy.” After taking the time to make that little speech she takes off back to the slide once again.

Mio, who was in the kitchen, watched as all of the other Pokemon enjoyed their meals and felt a bit jealous since she was quite hungry herself. She knew that it would be rude to take someone else’s food so instead, she decides to just pretend she’s fine and silently sits down to enjoy the company of the others. That’s when her stomach grumbles so loudly that there’s no way the others didn’t hear it.

As Patches began to ramble on about his slide, she then remembered Gary’s question and walked back into the aquarium room. The two of them approached the fountain, where the Totodile continued to swim around happily. He listened to Patches as she spoke of how little she was able to use Totodile in the past and how she saw how happy he looked here in Gary’s base. “Wow,” Gary replied, nearly at a loss of words of Patches’ selfless act. “Well if that’s your wish, I would be honored to give him a home here.”

Gary bent over and slowly pulled Totodile out of the fountain to hold him in his arms. He cared little about getting wet as he was already wearing a dry suit in anticipation of diving in the aquarium before Patches’ arrival. “What do you say, little guy?” he asked, looking down at the Totodile in his arms, “Would you like to live here with all these Pokemon? I promise to take you along on adventures as well.” The Totodile looked up at Gary with big eyes and a bigger toothy grin. “Tot!” he exclaimed with a happy wiggle. “I guess it’s settled then!” Gary added, grinning back. “I think I’ll call you Wani! Patches, I really appreciate this. And feel free to come visit him any time, okay?” Gary turned to face Patches, but she had already run off to go back on the slide once again. On one hand, he was beginning to grasp what kind of person his new friend was, but on the other, he knew in the back of his mind that he would never be able to fully figure out what goes through her head.

Hearing the grumble of the Pikachu’s stomach, Amph’s maternal instincts kicked in as she stepped back from her food. She gave Mio a warm smile before quickly walking over to the cupboard where Gary kept some food. She pulled out a bowl and filled it with a few apples before grabbing a bottle of honey and drizzled it over them. She then carried the bowl over to Mio and set it down in front of her with a sheepish grin on her face. She then brought her own food bowl over, and as she did, Espy, Buru, and Lynxa did the same, forming a circle. Not wanting to leave the Pikachu out, each of them took turns introducing themselves before going back to eating their food.

Lapras The Base at the Waterfall! Beware the Song of the Gentle Predator!

It was fascinating for Hyrem to watch his Lapras on the hunt, even more so as he was riding her back. Her head would submerge underwater, a Sing attack would be used that could only be heard below the surface, and a fish she had targeted would be lulled into a deep sleep and float to the top, easy for her to gently scoop into her mouth and send down her long throat with minimal resistance from her meal. "Wow, you're getting pretty good at that, Nami!" he said to the Pokemon ferrying him up the river to the waterfall ahead of them, who squealed happily at the compliment.

As they approached the base of the waterfall, Hyrem looked to the right of it to see a wooden house atop a big tree, apparently a popular design for quite a few trainers' secret bases as he had seen Keith, Marion, and Tate all use various trees for their bases. "Wonder who lives there?" Hyrem asked aloud to himself. "Nami, can you let me off here? I want to go check out that house up there," he asked the Lapras. With a nod, she then veered to the right, allowing her trainer to hop off of her and onto the embankment with ease. A short walk to the base of the tree, followed by a climb up the vine ladder, led him straight to what was likely the front door, which he would knock five times. "Hello? Is anyone home?" he asked, wondering who might reside in this area of Cloud Garden.

Gary stood over his fountain in the aquarium room as he gazed down at his new Totodile, Wani. The small blue crocodile was happily swimming around in the shallow pool of water, swishing his tail back and forth. It wasn’t until after a few minutes of observing Wani that Gary realized he had been distracted from his main objective all along; to dive into the aquarium tank and check on Pickle as well as introduce Leviathan to the other fish Pokemon.

“I’m so sorry guys, I got distracted with visitors and our new buddy here, Wani,” he apologized as he smacked his forehead and turned to face the fish tank. “I’ll be right there in a minute.” As Gary walked over to a cabinet next to the tank, he pulled out a pair of goggles and a re-breather, which would allow him to freely breathe underwater without having to lug around a heavy oxygen tank. While Gary pulled out the equipment, he heard another series of knocks at the front door. “Holy… Lots of visitors today, huh? Don’t worry guys, I’ll be right back!” As Gary scurried off to go answer the door, Devine the Kingdra slowly rolled her eyes.

Jogging up to the front door, Gary quickly caught his breath as he opened it to see who it could be. Opening the door, he found himself face to face with a teenage boy. “Oh, hi there. Welcome!” Gary greeted him with a smile. While under normal circumstances it would be unusual to find a stranger on your doorstep, in the Pokemon world such courtesies were much more lax. In fact, it was often commonplace to welcome travelers to your home as the crime rate was much lower and a home filled with Pokemon would be able to defend itself with ease.

On top of that, Gary had built his base with the intention of having it double as an observatory and conservation center in order to give travelers a place to rest with a view of the Cloud Garden. Gary held the door open to allow the guest inside. “Come on in! My name’s Gary, nice to meet you.”

Oh hey, someone was home! Specifically, a guy in his late 20's who had messy, brown hair, a blue vest, a black shirt, white shorts, and blue shoes who introduced himself as Gary. "Nice to meet you too, my name's Hyrem." As he was about to enter he stopped himself. "Oh wait," he said before walking over to the wooden railing to recall Nami into her Ice Ball then headed back to Gary and stepping through the doorway. "I just wanted to make sure my Lapras wasn't all alone out there. She's how I got here!"

Upon the mention of a Lapras, Gary’s eyes lit up and his jaw dropped. “Oh my god, you have a Lapras?!” he exclaimed excitedly. He flung himself onto the railing to sneak a peek of the Pokemon, but it was too late as she had already been recalled into her ball. Gary sighed and let out an embarrassed grin over the scene he just made. “I’ve always wanted one but I’m sure you know how rare they are. Must be nice having one!”

Letting out a chuckle, Gary showed Hyrem inside of his base. As they walked to the entry hallway, there were two large rooms at the end where the hallway forked. There was a large kitchen and living room to the right, and to the left was what is known as the aquarium room. It was a large expansive room with a big fountain in the middle for Pokemon to soak in and along the back wall featured a gigantic fish tank that took up the length of the room. A few fish Pokemon were swimming around in it.

As they looked around the room, there was a small poke on the back of Hyrem’s leg. It was a Pawniard, who looked up at the guest curiously with a smile. “Oh, this is Akame, I just traded for her very recently.”

Gary seemed pretty excited at the idea of a Lapras, and it wasn't hard to see why. "Yeah, Nami's really great at carrying me on water, 'specially when I just want to relax and let her take me wherever she wants to be!"

As Hyrem was led inside, his eyes lit up when he saw what looked to be an aquarium to the left that seemed to take up the entire wall as well as a fountain in front of it. "Whoa, this is so huge!" he praised in awe. "And a fountain too! The fish tank I have barely fits my Eelektross, and he just uses it like a bathtub. (Good thing my base has a whole underwater cave system to swim around in.) No wonder you want a Lapras, watching one swim around in there would be great."

At that moment, a small poke at his leg brought him back to reality, and he turned to see a Pawniard whom Gary referred to as Akame. "Well hi there! Wait...Katarina? Is that you?" he asked, starting to recognize her as the Pawniard he traded away.

Gary grinned proudly as he observed Hyrem take in the aquarium room in awe. “Pretty nice, huh? I’ve spent a lot years researching water Pokemon, so it only makes sense to have a large enough space for all of my water Pokemon to live in! Your timing couldn’t be more perfect actually; I was just about to go for a dive in the tank so I could feed them and introduce a few of my new Pokemon I obtained recently.” Gary smiled and gestured to the dry suit and swimming trunks he was wearing. “You’re welcome to join, if you feel like diving in an aquarium that is!”

As Akame gave Hyrem a poke, the guest seemed to recognize her and call her by a different name. “Wait, are you serious?” Gary asked incredulously, letting out a laugh. “Did you use to have her? What a small world!” Akame looked up at Hyrem and smiled quietly while waving at her former trainer.
