the Beginning of it all

The Viridian Forest has now reclaimed much of the surrounding area, engulfing much of stretching all the way to the base of Mt. Moon. The forest, now vast and teaming with life, is more of a maze than ever. Many travelers have entered this forest, only to get lost in its winding paths and deep thickets, and few know how to navigate it. The Pok閙on population is much the same as it has been in the past, though many new Pok閙on have migrated to this area, including some long ago imported from far-off regions. Some humans do live in the forest in a few small settlements, with the largest, Viridian Village, in the south, remnants of what once was the the bustling Viridian City and was, and still is, a crossroads for travelers and trainers alike.

Viridian Village
Near the edge of the forest is a small wooded village, formerly the site of the populous Viridian City. After its destruction, it sat in ruins for years before being recently reestablished, serving as an outpost for travelers trying to find their way through the forest. Many residents have set up small shops about the town to cater to those who pass through, and guides offer their services at common gathering spots - often for a slight fee.

Viridian Pok閙on Center - A rather cozy building nestled just a few doors down from the Viridian Village Gym. With a rather rustic, log cabin feel, it is a welcome stop for weary travelers and a meeting place for those looking for a bit of help or conversation.

Viridian Marketplace - A small conglomeration of shops and stalls gathered in the center of town to cater to the needs of travelers. Locals often gather here to shop and converse and are often quite chatty. They may even offer to help you through the forest, if you ask. Two stores serve travelers in particular: the Viridian General Store, for various travel supply needs, and the Viridian Apothecary, providing affordable, natural medicine (though your Pok閙on might not like the strong taste).

Viridian Village Gym - Recently reopened in a large cabin on the outskirts of the city, the Viridian Village Gym carries on the tradition of the original Viridian Gym, specializing in Ground types, though the Gym is equipped to cater to a variety of types. Training is held mostly outside the facility, taking advantage of a large, clay-covered clearing just beyond the Gym. It is lead by Ferdinand, a talented artist and ceramicist, who uses his connection with the Ground to inspire both his art and battling. He often enjoys trips into the forest for training and to discover new kinds of clay in the forest for his work.
Kawaii clutched her poplio close to her chest. It had been quite a long journey and she was quite eager to take a break from walking.
Perfera wriggled in her trainer's arms.
The pink-haired trainer made a "shush"ing noise and murmured to her pokemon, "Calm down Perfera, I'm sure they have a pool or lake somewhere."
The poplion barked in complaint but soon grew silent.
Ahead of them was a small village bustling with activity. The two bigest buildings had to be the Pokemon Center and the Gym.
The female trainer looked down at her water-type companion, "Well, shall we head down to the Pokemon Center to see if they have any quests or favors?"
The poplio barked hapily, eager to get started.
Kawaii giggled,"Alright then."
The two ran towards the Pokemon Center.
As they ran Kawaii though back on how the two had met. She had been on the edge of 17 when she came acros the little poplio about to die because of the polution and trash.
The female trainer had gotten the poor pokemon home and nursed it back to health.
The water-type hadn't wanted to leave after that and the two boded quickly. Once the bond was formed there was no going back.

(Hello sorry I've been drugged up on pain meds the past few days! If you have any questions feel free to shoot me a VM or PM! I'm more than happy to help)

The Viridian Pokecenter was busy with the hustle and bustle of new trainers, constantly running in and out of the center. Even after the disasters a decade ago, Viridian still was seen as a starting point by most to begin their journey. The forest was filled with many possible adventures and was always a good place to gain experience battling and befriending Pokemon. You look down at your Popplio and remember how the two of you first met. Even one small act of kindness can lead to a life long friendship. A few younger trainers notice the small sea lion and start coming up to you.

"Oh cool is that a Popplio?!" One of them excitingly asked, a girl with long, brunette hair in her preteens.

"Yes Mary it is. It's so cool seeing an Alolan Pokemon though!" a girl shorter than Mary said, who had blonde pigtails and glasses.

"It's so cuuute~ Alolan Pokemon are so rare here in Kanto! I'd love to visit one day," the last of the three, a teen with raven black hair in a bun added in.

"Oh, sorry! Hi! My name's Mary, this know it all is my younger sister Melanie, and the taller one is my older sister Megan. We just arrived here from New Bark!" Mary happily extends her hand, introducing herself and her sisters.

"I'm a Steel-type specialist, Mary is a Fairy-type specialist, and Meg is a Dark-type specialist. My partner is the tough Magnemite! Mary uses the cute and smart Ralts as her partner. Meg uses the cool and somewhat brutal Scraggy as her partner," Mel furthers the introduction, and in turn extends her hand.

"We're here to participate in a talent show where we work together with our Pokemon to pull off cool tricks. It's different from contests since the trainer also participates... Hey, maybe you'd like to try it?" Megan asks you, being the only one who doesn't extend her hand.

What do you do?

Kawaii was compleatly taken aback by the three trainers aproaching her out of nowhere, but took it in stride.
"Hello, My name is Kawaii. I specialize in water-type pokemon." She smiled and continued "I would love to participate. We were going to go to the pokemon center to see if anyone needed help. This sounds like fun though!"
Perfera barked at the attention and waved one blue flipper at the three trainers.
Kawaii was still a bit new to the idea of meeting new people since she had been travaling only with her poplio for so long. So, she was still a bit skiddish in large crowds.

"Kawaii? That's an... interesting name," you hear Mel mutter under her breath before seeing her get elbowed by Mary.

"Well I think that's a wonderful name. Nice to meet you again! Apparently the show is going to be held here in the plaza in a few hours. I need to practice with my Ralts for our act, so ta~" Mary responds in an almost apologetic matter before jetting out of the Pokemon Center.

"Yeah that's a good idea," Mel mutters awkwardly as she turns to leave.

"Sorry about my sisters, they're still young. I can tell the judges you're entering the contest. Scraggy and I still need to touch up a few things, so I'll swing by the admissions booth before going off to let them know. Oh, let me do this real quick." Megan then takes out a sort of camera and snaps a photo of you and your Popplio. "I'll show them this photo too so there isn't any confusion. Later!" With that, the last of the three sisters leaves you.

It seems that the center is quieter now after your interaction with the siblings. Maybe it was rush hour? Well, you can hear Perfera happily barking at the idea and she soon jumps out of your hands. Popplio were known to be entertainers so it wouldn't be hard to participate in the show. At this point, it was more or less figuring out what kind of act to do. Maybe acrobatics? Or singing? Or something else that could utilize your talents?

What do you do?

Kawaii shook her head slowly as the girls left. She would never understand why some female trainers acted in such a stuck-up way. The pink-haired trainer looked down at her pokemon, it didn't matter now they had a contest to prepare for.
At first it might have seemed like a good idea to do a singing performance, but with Perfera's Perish Song that might not go well.
Instead Kawaii decided to fall back on what her poplio was 2nd best at, acrobatics.
Being able to dodge incoming attacks had been key for the water type, but now she could do it for fun.
The female trainer relayed her idea to Perfera and the poplio loved it. Clapping with joy the water type jumped and did a flip in middair before landing again.
Kawaii giggled, "Alright come on, let's practice in an open area for awhile."

Deciding that singing would not be that good of an idea, you instead think of doing acrobatics. Popplio were known for their fancy flips and tricks, especially involving the bubbles they could produce. Deciding that as your course of action, you and Perfera leave the Pokemon Center. Walking through town, you see a small alcove with a few tree branches hanging out. They seemed like a good spot to practice jumps and other acrobatic tricks, so you motion for your water-type to follow.

You two start to practice, but you have the odd feeling something is watching you. You hear a small movement in the brush behind you, and look to see what it is. Nothing. Could've been a bird or something. However, the more you practice, the more you hear shuffling behind you. Now and again you'd look behind you, and the rustling would stop. Then it would continue as you started practice again. Your Popplio starts to bark, getting slightly annoyed.

What do you do?

Kawaii sighed and finalky motioned for her poplio to stop. The trainer gestured to the rustaling bushes.
Perfera glared at her trainer as if to say that she was not going in there no matter what. The female trainer glared at her water-type "We are going to face much worse on our adventures. You have got to get used to this sort of thing."
The poplio rolled here eyes before standing on gaurd while Kawaii knelt down and pulled back the bushes.

You and Perfera check the bushes, and see a sort of beige shrew looking back at you. Perhaps it was interested in your performance? The Pokemon then backed off slowly, a bit startled by being approached by a human. Even the wild village Pokemon were a bit weary of humans still. Though, they were in general more use to them and less likely to be afraid.

You can see the Pokemon look back at you cautiously. One wrong move and it could flee, and you didn't really have the time to chase down a Pokemon since the talent show was soon. Your Popplio seems to be acting bit hostile, but you couldn't tell if it was because it was a new Pokemon to her, or something else. Even if the shrew wasn't your ideal Pokemon, who knows when you'd find a Pokemon interested in you next. The Sandshrew looks at you, waiting for your next move.

What do you do?

Kawaii retained a squeal, she adored Sandshrew. The pink-haired trainer knelt down and reached out a hand, "It's ok I won't hurt you."
Perfera was indeed acting a bit hostile and the female trainer was well aware of this. She glanced in warning at her poplio and the water-type backed off. Kawaii hoped she could catch this little ground type before the competition started but she also did not want to scare it off. She really hoped it was worth the risk she was taking.

As Kawaii took a knee to put herself nearer Sandshrew's level, the little fella's timidness rapidly increased. Before she even extended her hand, it was quaking in its theoretical boots; it was obvious that this Pokemon was more used to the mutual respect and ignorance of the villagers than to the direct confrontation of a trainer. So heightened was the little shew's sense of uncertainty, that when Kawaii gently extended her hand, the Sandshrew sprung into the air, swiftly and smoothly curling itself into a tight ball before plopping back onto the grassy ground. It seemed that kind words and gestures weren't enough to immediately win a Pokemon's trust. Wild Pokemon were just much more wary around people nowadays.

Or at least, that's what one would initially assume to be the reason for the Sandshrew's behavior. Not moments after balling up, however, another possible motivator revealed itself. With her senses acting in overdrive mode due to the Sandshrew setting her on edge, Prefera managed to hear...an unsettling sound, an odd whisping noise, like something cutting harshly through wind. Surveying the clearing, the pup couldn't find the source of the irregularity until she happened to glance upwards out of frustration. Recognizing the source and the potential danger immediately, Prefera suddenly barked in alarm to alert her trainer, as she noticed a figure descending from the sky at a high velocity. At the other end of the clearing, Kawaii saw a blur shoot downwards, but miraculously, she witnessed it curve its trajectory, transferring it's vertical momentum into a horizontal blitz...aimed straight for where Kawaii was kneeling, just barely above the ground.

Kawaii didn't even think before acting, she grabbed her poplio in one hand and the sandshrew in the other and rolled to the side. She was determined to keep this little shrew safe.
Perfera , on the other hand was sorely miffed about rolling around in the dirt. She wanted to keep her coat nice and clean. This rucus was not helping.

OOC: Whoops, accidentally thought Poplio's name was Prefera instead of Perfera! Fixed it from now on xd

Reacting with a pure rush of adrenaline, Kawaii's mind did not even process what she was doing. As the flying dart rushed closer, she scooped the balled up Sandshrew in her right arm and grasped Perfera's fin in the other, immediately diving to the right once both parties were secured. Luckily, Kawaii leaped out of the way just in the nick of time, though the dodge was rather ungraceful. But whereas Kawaii only received a few knocks on her legs and body, Perfera was treated to a rather horrifying couple of seconds. Shocked by the sudden nature of her trainer's movements, her eyes were wide open to witness a navy and red blur zip by her nose, inches away from having collided with the Poplio. However, this little brush with death (or at least a lot of pain) was not the end of things for her. Along with Kawaii, she was treated to a nice pile of dirt to land in. Hopping immediately to her fins, she let out a flurry of irked barks, spraying some water into the air in order to clean herself.

Once she had recovered from the initial rush of instincts, Kawaii slowly got back to her feet, letting the trembling Sandshrew stay on the ground. As it unfurled, Perfora emitted a low growl, but the Sandshrew paid her no heed, tentatively unfurling. Looking upwards at the towering trainer, its eyes practically sparkled with gratitude, graciously nodding in the direction of Kawaii. However, it then turned around, eager to see what had become of its aggressor. Once Sandshrew sighed with relief, Kawaii followed its gaze. In a tree just a few meters away, a small navy, red, and white bird was frantically trying to pry its beak out of a tree, but to no avail.

Kawaii did not have long to be mesmerized by the odd sight, though. Faintly, but clearly, she heard a loud voice announce that the competition would be beginning in thirty minutes. Upon hearing this, Perfera pointed back towards the town proper, whining and obviously ready to go. Meanwhile, Sandshrew simply looked up to see what its defender was going to do next, seemingly willing to follow her lead for now.

Kawaii looked at the two thoughfully. An idea sruck her she knelt down and addressed the little ground-type "Would you like to join us in our act? I'm sure we could find a place for you. Perfera is going to some acrobatics and I have just the way for you to help." she smiled and extended a hand with a pokeball in it. The pinkette smiled "Don't worry, you won't have to stay in it for long if you don't want to."
Perfera studied the sandshrew, maybe this could work. Sandshrews could curl up into balls. The Poplio could very well use a ball in her act. Maybe once it was cleaned up it could be kind of cute. The water-type nodded in aproval.

Forgetting its previous reservations after Kawaii's valiant actions, the Sandshrew perks up at the mention of a performance. Although it had never been in the spotlight before, the little shrew could not help but express its curiosity about something its savior was so excited about. After pondering its options for a moment, it nodded, agreeing to come along with Kawaii. As this exchange happened, Perfera, after begrudgingly accepting the new Pokemon's temporary addition to the party, decided to investigate the Ground-type further. Although bothered by its dirtiness and oddly bruised exterior, Perfera concluded that maybe, possibly, somehow...the Sandshrew's previously displayed ball curling abilities could be of use in her upcoming spectacle of talent and glamour.

"Ten minutes until showtime!" rang out the announcer, her megaphone enhanced voice just managing to read the parties' ears. With everything decided, Kawaii chose not to delay things any further. She knew there was still a bit of a walk ahead of them to get back into the town proper. With Perfera and the Sandshrew at either side, she briskly strode off towards the town marketplace for the talent show, leaving the little bird to keep fluttering in vain. Maybe now it would learn its lesson about pecking other Pokemon!

Arriving just in the nick of time, Kawaii located the group of contestants all collected under a flamboyantly colored tent nestled within the ring of various shops encircling the plaza. The primary colored tent luckily stood out like a sore thumb, and Kawaii was able to quickly check in with the organizer of the talent show, a rather tall blond haired woman, seemingly in her mid forties judging by her features. A name-tag on her overalls identified her as Moira McGuire, a Gym Trainer from the local gym.

"Ah, you must be Kawaii!" she greeted with a comforting grin. "You're just in time. Your friends already let me know that you were planning to enter, so you're all set. Feel free to enjoy a pastry and talk with the other contestants while you await your turn," she sweetly instructed, motioning to a platter of delectable, varied pastries resting on the table. Having signed everyone in, Moira, megaphone in hand, headed to the center of the marketplace and began announcing the rules of the show along with the first contestant. A trainer Kawaii did not recognize stepped into the plaza to begin performing, but Kawaii was immediately distracted by a tap on the shoulder. Turning around, she automatically recognized the three girls in front of her. Mary stood cradling her Ralts while Melanie's Magnemite hovered beside her head. Finally, Megan simply waved at Kawaii before returning to her private pep talk with the Scraggy she was kneeling down to.

"I'm so glad you made it! For a second, we thought you might miss the show," exclaimed Mary.

"Who's your new friend?" asked Melanie, noticing the Sandshrew standing beside Kawaii, gripping her leg with its small hands, notable not used to this many people, unlike Perfera, who huffed in disapproval at Sandshrew's timidness.
