    Default Prologue to Disaster (PTA) IC

    It's a beautiful day in Rustburo city. Wind blowing and sun shining, Rustboro looks like the picture of a flourishing small city. People wander around doing their normal Tuesday morning buisness, and many head to work dressed in everything from suits to coveralls. Towering over the Northern half of town, one building appears as a larger than life mansion. This is your destination, this is Devon Headquarters

    You have one hour before our interview starts. It will take most of you fifteen minutes to get there. You are to present your invitation to the receptionist.

    Abe had no one to say goodbye to before he left. He gathered his things and quickly, quietly exited the circus's temporary grounds. A new life awaited, and he was eager to get there.

    -------

    Abe is overwhelmed by the city. The constant noises would take some getting used to, for sure. Out of fear of getting lost, and with no idea what to do around Rustboro anyway, Abe heads straight for Devon Headquarters. When he gets to the front door, he stops and sighs. "Here goes nothing."

    Upon reaching the receptionist, Abe clears his throat to get her attention. "Hi. Abe Crane, I'm here for an interview."

    Leon just now woke up in the room he stayed at in the pokecenter overnight. His flight had gotten in at 2 in the morning, and he had been exhausted. When he overslept through his alarm clock, Nicolai very dutifully zapped him to remind him that he didn't want to oversleep today.

    After rising from bed and putting on his spelunking leathers (minus the gear he'd had to leave in Unova), he heads out to stop by the gym before his meeting. He'd like to do a quick reconassaince beforehand to learn what kind of gym leader was in Slateport. He hadn't really paid much attention before. He thinks he remembers something about steel, or ice. Maybe ground? Something hard, anyways. Still, whatever they ran here, they'd likely know of local 'mons in the area.

    Either way, Mauville was one stop he'd definitely want to take while here in Hoenn. Wattson the gym leader there was said to be an electric master of great skill, as well as the city hosting the New Mauville power plant. He'd heard that it was a hotspot for electric pokemon to hang out at.

    All of this, of course, would be immaterial if he were late. He had to make sure to be in the Devon Building on time.

    As the young breeder entered town, she made sure to try and keep a hat and sunglasses on. The last thing she wanted was to be late because somebody recognized her and distracted her with questions, request to teach their pokemon, or complaints about how she couldn't give just flat out battle tips.

    Amber glanced at her pokegear to see the time and sighed. She wanted to hurry up so that she'd be able to look for her eevee, but at the same time with an interview at a set time her rush would most likely not matter. Nonetheless, if they weren't busy perhaps she would be fine. With that in mind, she moved to the Devon corporation and got in line behind the man already there with her invitation ready and in her hand.

    "So, here's the place."

    Ken Richmond looked up at the gate, staring at Devon Headquarters. The Aron at his side also looked up, nudging Ken's leg with confidence. Idly, the martial artist reached down without bending, scritching the Aron's head.

    "Chop?"

    Ken nudged the machop's arm. "Don't be so worried, Kleid. A little optimism will go a long way - it'll work out this time."

    That didn't seem to directly soothe the machop, but he did remain silent, so Ken let it go. "Here - we've got an hour to kill. Let's walk around town for a half hour or so - take a look around."

    "Aron?"

    "Are you ever not thinking about food?" Ken smiled. "I've got some extra metals for you this time, Viktor. Once we're done walking around, though."

    That temporarily sated the aron, as the trio walked about for a bit. Expectantly, Kleid wanted back in his ball after a little bit of walking, to which Ken complied - that machop definitely loved his luxury ball.

    This is the day. Jonathan waited so long for this very moment, only an hour until the job interview he always dreamt of.
    He cannot fail, not with the amount of training and preparations he did. Sure, he isn't really good with people but his abilities just have to convince them that he's the right person for such a job.

    He goes straight to the Devon Headquarters, arriving early never hurts, and goes directly to the reception where two other persons are already waiting, one talking with the receptionist.

    The receptionist looks up at you after finishing with a phone call with a client. She looks up at you smiling. Welcome to Devon Corporation, may I see your invitation?

    Amber and Jonothan
    When the receptionist finishes with the person in front of you, she smiles and asks, "You're here for the interview correct? Do you have your invitation?

    Leon
    You make your way through town, and find the gym without much difficulty. You were greeted by a sign proclaiming, "Gneiss, the Mountain of Rustboro" The door to the gym enters onto the second floor balcony. There are about thirty trainers milling around talking with each other, but a single pair battles in one of many small arenas encased by walls, visible only from the balcony. The pokemon they were using looked like boulders with arms and legs, and the din from pokemon colliding sounded like thunderclaps.

    Ken and Drake
    You wander around town for awhile, seeing the sights and sounds, and eventually you end up in a park towards the center of town. Hobby joggers and cyclists made their way through, and some small families played in the playground, laughing hysterically.

    On the other side of the park, you see somebody that doesn't quite seem to fit. Drake is seeing a very small adult with a small pokemon by his side, while Ken is looking at somebody with a very odd sense of fashion.

    Oh, yeah, ROCKS. That's the type here. Volta should have an easy time if I decide to challenge. Leon thought upon seeing the rocks. He'll scan one if he can.

    After pausing for a moment, he'll head over to the nearest trainer and say, "Howdy there. I'm new in town, just flew in for a job interview. What's the pokemon battling like in this part of the world?"

    The trainer, who appeared to be a student at the trainer school in town,As in league battles? Well I'm not sure how much different it is from the rest of the world. Just agree how many pokemon you'll be using, set any rules on burrowing, flying, swimming and the like. Then you battle like in any other place. Gym battles are usually either three or six pokemon, but individual leaders may have their own rules. Where are you from?

    Your pokedex flashes, identifying the pokemon as Graveler.

    "Just flew in from Unova. It sounds similar to what I heard about Mistralton's rules, but I haven't been doing much official battling. I spent most of my time out exploring Chargestone Cave and the surrounding areas and learning about the pokemon in that area. Mind having a friendly no-wager battle with me to help me see if I get the concept?"

    Sure. For a casual match, we won't need to use the cages. One pokemon each with no flight or burrowing sound fair? He makes his way down to the lower practice courts, and releases a small pokemon that looked like a tree.

    Abe and Jonathan
    The woman reads the invitation carefully before looking up at you. Thank you for coming. Until 9:00 would you please wait in our lounge? She walks you to a room off of the main lobby. There are many plush chairs, a grand piano in the corner, and a few other people sitting by themselves.

    Abe nods and follows the woman to the lounge. He sits down in a seat that isn't next to anyone already there. He pulls out his two poke balls and stares quietly at them. Whatever happens, we're never going back. This is our life now, for better or worse.

    Unless disturbed, Abe will spend the time waiting in silence, lost in thought.

    Ken stepped away from the direct path as several cyclists zipped by. "Everyone seems to be having a great time." He commented to Viktor idly.

    "Aron?"

    "Huh? We'll eat when - oh. Ha. Sorry Viktor, you absolutely cannot eat someone's bicycle."

    "Aron." Came the dejected response. Ken smiled, scritching his Aron's metallic form behind the neck again - when he was spoken to. He looked up - that guy stood out a bit given his attire, but if there was anyone in the world who wouldn't judge based on looks, it was the adult who stood at a towering 4'6. He raised the brim of his cap as he looked up at Drake.

    "Thanks! Now, if only he'd get his mind off food for just a few moments."

    "Aron?" Aron nudged his trainer, who glanced at his pokemon. He recognized /that/ look.

    "I don't think we have enough time for a battle, Viktor - we have to be at Devon in what, fifteen minutes?"

    He then looked back up to the trainer. "Sorry about that - are you from around here? I'm new to town myself - any sights you'd suggest seeing while I'm here?"

    He was nudged by his Aron. "Oh, and my name's Ken." A second nudge. "Mr. pushy here is Viktor."

    Jonathan sits down and takes out his Porygon. "It's finally time Delta, today is the day our fate will be decided. Could you stay in my Mech Arm for the duration of the interview? Having you around kind gives me some courage."

    Delta makes some sounds comparable to those of a modem dial-up before vanishing in the mech arm.

    And now, I wait. Come on Jonathan, remain calm. There is no way they won't take me.

    Huh, so he was also on his way to Devon? Well, Ken knew they were hiring - and Devon was very popular indeed.

    "Works for me - it's always pleasant to have company. Come on, Viktor."

    The two also started walking towards the corporation - they'd get there a little early, but hey. "I'll be sure to take you up on that offer, Drake. I've still got a lot to learn about battling."

    Following the receptionist, Amber arrives at the lounge and sees quite a few others. She looks over the interesting assortment of people and tilts her head seeing the boy with the mech arm. "Oh, I didn't realize there would be so much competition for the job." She says a bit surprised. "Hey there." She says politely before moving to sit near the two boys that looked about her age.

    The little pokemon falls with a cry, knocked out. Right afterwards, you pokedex identifies the pokemon as a Bonsly. The student returns the pokemon, and walks up to you. That was a really good battle, you're probably ready for your first gym.

    Drake and Ken
    The receptionist looks over Drakes invitation, and Kens when she recieves it, then leads you both to the lounge area.

    "Absolutely."

    Ken took a thin folder out of his backpack, and removed his still-crisp invitation, handing it over. He paused for a moment, noting the recipe still in the folder - which he showed to Aron. "Remember trying to cook that?"

    "Aron!"

    "Heh, I'm excited to try it again too." Which was in no way what the Aron had meant or said, but hey.

    He glanced about the lounge for a moment. "Good morning!" He said, to nobody in particular. He sat down shortly thereafter, holding out a fist-sized chunk of steel to Viktor before the Aron had a chance to say anything. Which was absolutely fine with Viktor - who sat munching happily.
