    Default [PTU, IC] big teej presents: Kanto Plus: Aftermath

    Party:
    Welcome to the world of Pokemon. It should feel quite familiar, but don’t get too comfortable, the road between Pallet City and the Indigo Plateau is strewn with the shattered dreams and bodies of those who came before you… and failed miserably.

    You have been in Pallet City for a week, a once sleepy, unimportant dot on the map with no notable features of people aside from Professor Oak. However, in the past few years, Pallet Town has grown into a full-fledged city, made famous by being the hometown of the last 3 Grand Champions of the Pokemon League, as well as it’s involvement in what has become known as The Giovanni Incident.

    You have been waiting for Professor Oak to summon this year’s batch of aspirant trainers to his lab to hand out Starter Pokemon, selected for their ideal combination of ease of temperament and care, as well as being powerful enough to keep rookie trainers alive during the first few weeks of their journey. In addition to many Trainer’s first pokemon, Official League Trainers receive a Pokedex to help them catalogue their journey as well as assist in Professor Oak’s research.

    Today, is that day.
    Now…. Are you a boy, or a girl?

    Tyson:
    Having completed your Ninja training, Koga has decided to further your education and skills by sending you on the traditional League Challenge. You have been sent to pallet town to register as an official trainer of the Pokemon league and be issued a pokedex by the revered Professor Oak. You may feel nervous leaving the relative safety of Fuschia city and its outskirts for the first time, but you are sure that Kasumi will be more than able to keep you safe.

    Cassandra:
    You have seen this day play itself out every day for the past 8 months. Each time it happened a little differently, but the key events remained the same, sticking out in your mind as tangible experiences, as real as tending the garden every day. You applied to become an official trainer, you were accepted, and now the time has come to begin your journey. You were escorted to Pallet town by your parents and one of the junior caretakers of Pokemon Tower – a young man taking his first steps on an entirely different journey. Once you were settled in safely, your escort departed and you have been left to your own devices.

    Party:
    You arrive at Professor Oak’s lab amid a trickle of other aspiring trainers. You are stopped at the gate to the compound so one of the Trainers protecting Oak’s lab can check your paperwork, but you are sent through without incident. You are given strict instructions to proceed to the front door of the main building, where you can see several Scientist-looking types dressed in white lab coats standing around holding clipboards and chatting. The Trainer at the check point reminds you that if you have a pokemon with you, it is to remain in it’s pokeball for the duration of your visit.

    OOC: Players are free to introduce and describe themselves as they wish. You may detail what you have done for the past week if you like, converse with the trainer at the checkpoint, etc.
    Also, roll Perception and General Edu.

    A young man walks through the streets of Pallet at a leisurely pace eventually finding himself on the outskirts of Oak's Laboratory. His eyes move across the faces of the trainers and pokemon that have gathered here as he approaches the Trainer stationed at the gate.

    "Mornin'." I nod my head toward the Trainer. " I guess you want to see these huh?" I reach into my pocket pull out my paperwork which I hand over for inspection.

    After my paperwork is returned. "So is there a reason why Pokemon aren't allowed outside of their Pokeballs here?"

    After my conversation with the Trainer I walk up to the front door of the main building, keeping to the outskirts of the trainers gathered there but in a place where I can get a view of everything that's happening.

    Perception: 9*

    Gen. Edu.: 6*

    OOC: Tyson is a 18 year old male with dark skin, short black hair, and deep brown eyes. He stands at 5'7" and has a lean/athletic build. An official Pokemon League hat colored blue, white, and black currently rests backwards on his head. He wears a blue sleeveless hoodie with white trim over a plain white t-shirt. A large stylized image of the Soul Badge engulfed in a white flame decorates the back of the hoodie. His loose fitting belt barely manages to hold up his black cargo shorts which cover the ends of his blue athletic socks where his knees begin. He sports a pair of blue, white, and black sneakers on his feet that also appear to be suited for running. (they are not running shoes mechanically)

    The Trainer manning the gate glances around the compound and then looks at the queue behind you, you've got a few moments before the next trainer arrives. "Security." He says flatly, then says in a gentler tone "It hasn't happened since The Giovanni Incident, but criminals, Team Rocket in particular, used to regularly take a crack at Oak's lab. Especially when we were sending off new trainers."

    Spoiler: Perception/General Edu results
    Show
    Now that the Trainer has mentioned it, you can't help but notice the increased security - you can see several trainers loitering around key areas of the compound, watching the skies and the incoming trainers closely. None of them stand out to you.

    When you reach the clump of trainers and researchers at the door, it becomes apparent that people are being sorted. There are a handful of researchers with clipboards talking quietly with the assembled trainers, occasionally calling out a name over the conversation. The other researchers are leading small groups of trainers into the building where they quickly disappear down a hallway or through a door. It would seem that trainers are being sorted based on if they need to be given a starter and pokedex, need to register a Pokemon and receive a pokedex, or just need to acquire a pokedex as they have a registered pokemon already.

    Since your pokemon was a gift, it probably hasn't been registered to you, and you need a pokedex from Professor Oak.

    Cassandra looks up at the guard with wide eyes as he explains the rules to her, nodding as he ends each sentence. When he says that pokemon are to remain in their pokeballs, she struggles to find her houndour's ball in the silly bag her parents had given her. What was it called again? A backpack.. yes, that was it. A silly bag that you couldn't easily access when you had it on properly.

    When she finally manages to find the pokeball that had somehow fallen to the bottom of her bag, she recalls Raum, holding the white premier ball close to her chest. Cassandra has the same sorts of struggles when the trainer asks for her paperwork, attempting to keep Raum's pokeball in her hand while she rummages through her backpack. She bows formally to the guard after he checks everything, her neck and back ramrod straight as she's learned from a young age.

    After the trainer gives her paperwork back, she decides to place it in the front pocket of her bag so she can't lose it again. After a brief moment of consideration, Raum's pokeball follows. She proceeds toward the Scientists.

    OOC: I also cannot put links into my posts...
    Cassandra is an average looking 19 year old girl. Average height, average build, average brown hair pulled back into a ponytail. Her eyes, however, are what makes her stand out. One is the same chestnut brown as her hair. The other is a bright jade green. She's deeply tanned from working in the temple garden. Today, she's dressed in a light gray, long-sleeved shirt and red kapri pants. Her tennis shoes feels weird on her feet, but her mother assured her that these would be what she want to wear instead of her sandals.

    Noticing your confusion, the Guard again directs Cassandra to the group of researchers and mentions that she'll be sorted into a group based on what she needs.

    Spoiler: Perception/General Edu results
    Show
    You're not entirely sure why, but you observe that the Lab Compound is positively crawling with trainers, trainers that you know are not here to see Professor Oak, they patrol the compound with grimset faces and clenched fists, watching you and the other trainers. Several more loitering near the entrances of other buildings in the compound, and a handful are on hand ushering the incoming aspirants to the main lab. None of them stand out to you, posssessed of a uniform demeanor and temperment.


    When you reach the clump of trainers and researchers at the door, it becomes apparent that people are being sorted. There are a handful of researchers with clipboards talking quietly with the assembled trainers, occasionally calling out a name over the conversation.

It would seem that trainers are being sorted based on if they need to be given a starter and pokedex, need to register a Pokemon and receive a pokedex, or just need to acquire a pokedex as they have a registered pokemon already.

    Since your pokemon is a family pet, it likely hasn't been registered for official league use, and you need a pokedex from Professor Oak.


    Party:
    The line is moving at a fair pace, and within moments your name is called by one of the clipboard wielding researchers, he quickly confirms your name and the status of your pokemon and indicates you should follow another researcher nearby, he stands off to the side, hands in his pockets, you can see 3 pokeballs on his belt (2 Basic and a Heavy) surrounded by a handful of other trainers.

    The Clipboard Wielder tells this new researcher to "Go ahead and take the next group in, Auditorium 3." The researcher in charge of your group nods and gestures for you to follow him...

    Once inside, he leads you through a door and down several winding hallways until finally your group reaches another plain door, there is a placard on the wall next to the door, but a cloth hangs over it. The researcher opens the door and gestures for you to proceed inside.

    The room looks like a large classroom set up like an amphitheater, tables are set up in large steps down into the front of the room which is a single, open space. The room is about a quarter full of other trainers. Some turn and look at your group entering, others are too engrossed in conversation or with their own private thoughts. At the front of the room is a large table with a cloth over it, as well as a large, hexagonal machine with a spherical socket in the top of it. Standing next to the table is an older man who you immediately recognize as Professor Oak.

    Behind Oak, and off to the side is another man leaning against the wall, arms crossed. He is a few years older than your cohort. He is wearing denim shorts and a black shirt with a chain vest over it. He has dark blue hair in a ponytail down his back. A Poliwrath leans against the wall next to the man, mimicking his pose. Floating over his opposite shoulder is a Koffing, both pokemon stare at the assembled trainers.

    OOC: you have a few minutes to find a seat and maybe chat with another trainer if you wish, the room is empty enough that you can find a seat basically wherever. Also, second chance at General Edu.

    Tyson follows the researcher along with the rest of the trainers, gradually shifting to the middle of the group. Upon seeing the placard his curiosity gets the better of him.

    When the researcher opens the door I slip away from the group of trainers and quickly lift the cloth to read the placard underneath.

    Stealth Roll: 16

    If unnoticed, I slip back into the group as the last of trainers enter the auditorium.

    Your actions go entirely unnoticed by the researcher or your fellow trainers. You lift the cloth and see that the placard reads AUDITORIUM 3, then, doing your ninja heritage proud, slip seamlessly back into the crowd and enter the room. It would seem you have not been mislead or sorted incorrectly, you are indeed, in the 3rd auditorium.


    You are now in the room, your antics have not deprived you of the opportunity to choose a seat, converse with other trainers, or anything else you wish to do.

    Cassandra heads down to the front of the room, selecting a chair in the first row. She doesn't want to miss any of the important information the professor will have to say, not when she knows she's behind her peers in her knowledge of the world outside her temple.


    She puts her backpack on the floor beside her chair, making sure it stay upright and out of the way of the other seat in case some else wants to sit beside her.

    Tyson shrugs. "Should've expected that...", he laughs as he speaks quietly to himself.

    Gen. Edu.: 11

    Tyson moves across the room at a measured pace. He quickly studies the people gathered in the auditorium, making note of anyone who stands out.

    So if that's Professor Oak... then who's this guy? he looks at man flanked by his two Pokemon as he takes his seat in the front row.

    "Hey Professor, I thought we were instructed to keep our Pokemon in their Pokeballs?"

    He nods his head toward the man and his Pokemon as he leans back in his seat and kicks his feet up.

    No sooner than those words leave your lips than you realize who the blue haired man is, you didn't recognize him without his trademark bandanna and unique weapon. This is Sergei, the Pallet City Gym Leader


    Party

    Professor Oak smiles and glances at the blue haired man. "That's Correct." he says. "Applicants are required to keep their pokemon stowed away in the interest of safety and security. This requirement doesn't apply to members of my security team, nor to Sergei, who has been requested by the Pokemon League to be present for each year's New Trainer Sendoff*. At the risk of being morbid, Sergei here is my last line of defense against those who would put my research to foul ends, or steal new technology or rare pokemon from my lab."

    Professor Oak shifts his attention to the back of the room and asks the researcher if this is everyone. Oak's Aide flips through some papers attached to his clipboard and then says "Yes, Professor. All other applicants were sorted into the other two groups." The aide then disappears out the door.

    "Excellent, Excellent." Oak says, moving towards the center of the floor, his excitement visible in his posture and the smile tugging at his face.

    "Now, normally I would bore you with a speech about hopes and dreams and the nature of pokemon and we'd go through the nerve-wracking and joyous occasion of distributing starter pokemon to each of you. However, each of you have already acquired your first partner pokemon in some fashion. So in addition to not having to sit through one of my lectures and having to endure a lottery for your starter, you'll have the added advantage of getting a brief head-start on the other two groups.... we have 2 orders of business and then we can set you off proper on your Pokemon Journey!"

    Professor Oak then turns and goes back over to the table and pulls the cloth off with a flourish. Laying in neat rows on the table are shiny Pokedexes and a single clipboard. Professor Oak takes up the clipboard and a pen and moves to stand by the large hexagonal machine, which has the girth of a barrel and comes up to Oak's waist.

    "All we have to do is ensure each of you are registered properly to the league, along with your pokemon, and register your pokedex to you. so if you'll bear me for a moment... As I call your name, come up front and select a pokedex and place your partner's ball into the socket, this will register you, your pokemon, and your pokedex to the Pokemon League as an Officially Sanctioned Trainer."

    Oak then turns his attention back to the clipboard and reads aloud.

    "Lucille" - a girl sitting about half way up on the right side of the auditorium leaps out of her seat and practically skips down the aisle to the professor. She wears a knee length skirt over black leggings, with a green long-sleeved shirt, a bright yellow backpack, and pigtails completing her ensemble. She places a basic ball into the socket and picks up a pokedex, both machines "Ping" loudly and Oak tells her to return to her seat.

    more names are called, Cassandra ends up being about 10 names in, with Tyson being 7 names after that.

    After everyone has been called, Professor Oak looks around the room and asks if anyone's name wasn't called. Two hands in the back go up. Sergei visibly tenses.

    Professor Oak frowns and asks the two trainers to state their names.

    "Morrigan Mullach" - A woman with a robust figure wearing a heavy skirt with dark purple hair.

    "Irvine" - a younger boy, wearing dark glasses and what looks suspiciously like a military uniform - though bereft of any insignia or rank pins.

    Oak scratches at his stubble and then flips through the papers on his clipboard "oh, here you are, quite sorry, please, come forward."

    Sergei glares at Oak, but visibly relaxes.

    with the last two trainers returned to their seats, Oak prepares to dismiss the group

    Sergei speaks up "Professor, you're forgetting."

    Professor Oak looks up from his clipboard with a blank expression before looking at Sergei and saying "hm?"

    "The new thing." Sergei replies.

    you see the light-bulb go off over Oak's head as he turns around, gesturing at the assembled trainers with his pen. "Quite Right. Due to an unusual spike in fatalities over the past two years, the Pokemon League has mandated that new trainers be paired off at the start of their journey. You will be required to stay with your fellow trainer until you check in at Viridian City, at which point if you wish, you are free to go your separate ways. Be Careful, however. Should you arrive in Viridian city without your partner, your Status as an official trainer will be suspended until next year, and you'll have to through this all over again."

    Oak skims through the names, seemingly picking teams out at random.

    "Cassandra!" He calls, looking up and around the room. Spying the young Oracle in the front row, he looks back down at his clipboard, "you are paired with... Tyson!"

    before long all the other trainers in the room are paired up and you are escorted from the lab by another of Oak's aides.


    You are now outside the Lab compound.... what do you do?



    OOC: sorry for the massive wall of text, the space-time continuum is somewhat malleable here, if something is said or done that you feel you would have responded to, please do so. I didn't want to drag this out over multiple posts unless necessary.


    *it is worth 3 trainer xp to come up with a better name for the annual sending off of new trainers on their journey through the pokemon league. but only if it sticks.

    After Oak tells Tyson about Sergei Cassandra suppresses a laugh when the boy in her row seems to realize who the blue-haired man is.

    After Oak's speech She's a little disappointed with how short Professor Oak's speech is. She'd been hoping for a lot more information, but she'll have to make due with what she already knows.

    As name after name is called, Cassandra gets more and more nervous. What if her father hadn't gotten her paperwork her in time? What if she'd filled out her paperwork wrong! Then her name is called. The Oracle finds Raum's pokeball in her bag. Her heart pound in her chest as as come to the front of the room. She can feel all the eyes on her back, as well as the Professor's and the gym leader's. As she gets to the front of the room, she bows to Sergei, then bows more deeply to Professor Oak. She picks a bright red Pokedex and places Raum's premier ball in the machine. After the machine does its thing, she returns to her seat and breathes a sigh of relief.

    She doesn't really pay attention again until the Professor starts talking about having trainers partner up. She's excited to hear who she will be with. It would be nice to have a partner who knows way more about the outside world than she does. And then she hears Tyson's name. She looks up to see who that is, since he hadn't gone before her. Annnndddd it's that guy... the one that'd questioned the Professor about the gym leader of Pallet City having his pokemon out. Great.

    As the Aide leads them out of the Lab and points them toward the edge of the the compound, Cassandra waits for her new partner to make the first move. She releases Raum as soon as they're outside the fence though. She'd been missing her shadow. She couldn't remember the last time she'd had to keep him in his pokeball so long.

    Tyson's eyes light up when he realizes the man's identity but his expression quickly shifts back to a neutral state. With a small grin on his face he gives a small nod of acknowledgment to Sergei before hearing out Oak.

    After the process of registration begins Tyson closes his eyes and leans back further in his seat as he waits for his name to be called.

    So they even requested that the Pallet City Gym Leader be here to ensure everyone's safety... Could the lab really be in that much danger? Tyson lets out a brief sigh as he continues to sit with his thoughts. The Safari Zone in Fuchsia isn't even guarded as heavily.

    His eyes open as his name is called and in one fluid motion he swings his legs off of the desk and onto the floor to stand. As he walks toward the front of the room he reaches to belt and removes a single pokeball. He gives it a small upward toss and catches in his right hand, placing it onto the machine. Shifting his focus over to the Pokedex he picks one up and looks it over before asking the Professor, "So how's this work exactly? And what can it do?" Tyson retrieves his pokeball and returns it to his belt as he awaits the Professor's response.

    After listening to Oak he returns to his seat and continues to inspect his newly acquired Pokedex. Not bad...

    He loses himself in thought once again until the Professor begins to speak about their journey to Viridian City and their partner.

    Partner huh? Never heard of them doing this before but I guess it's not the worst that could happen. Last I checked Viridian's only a route away.

    Hearing his name called, Tyson looks to the woman and gives a half-hearted salute before pocketing his pokedex.

    After the Oak's Aide gathers the trainers and escorts them out of the compound Tyson moves to find his partner at his leisurely pace once again. As he approaches he sees her release a small black dog from a pokeball then comes to stop a several steps away, fingers interlocked behind his head.

    "Hey, Cassandra right? If you didn't already catch it my name's Tyson, but you can call me 'Ty' if it helps any. Looks like I'll be your partner."

    Tyson wears a friendly smile as he extends his right arm and presents an open palm to shake hands with.

    Tyson (twisting the Space-Time-Continuum)

    The Pokedex you hold in your hand is a Calculator sized and shaped object that folds open like a book. It’s interior contains a small screen, a tiny speaker, and a number of buttons.

    “The Mark K5 Pokedex is a self-contained communication and data storage device.” Professor Oak begins to explain with a smile. “Unlike the original, which was only capable of providing information about encountered pokemon, this version also contains information about notable locations in the region, a map, and enables text and video communication between units and hard-wired structures, service is spotty away from designated travel routes however. There is a camera on the anterior surface that will register nearby pokemon and provide information about them.”

    OOC: you receive a Gen 1 Pokedex that is capable of making video calls, texting, has a map, and a handful of other assorted tools.

    Cassandra (slightly warping time)

    Raum looks around once he’s released from his pokeball, he sniffs the ground and around your shoes. He then looks at the lab and watches your new partner approach.

    Party
    OOC: the timeline is caught up, you are now conversing in front of Oak’s compound.
    Players are encouraged to frequently note in the OOC thread what pokemon they have out.

    Cassandra smiles and begins to bow to Tyson as he introduces himself, but stops and takes his offered hand instead. "I'm suppose to shake hands, right? It's hard to get use to when you been bowing to everyone your whole life," she says with a chuckle. "My name's Cassandra Kelani. Cassie, if you want."

    She gestures to the Houndour beside her. "This is Raum. He's good with strangers, so you don't need to worry about him. I've been told some people don't trust the Houndour line."

    "Are we ready to head out, Ty? Do you have anything you want to do before we leave the city?"

    Cassandra is ready to go whenever Tyson is. She's already said all of her goodbyes and has nothing else she needs to purchase. She does, however, need to to be pointed in the right direction.

    Tyson laughs in return. "Yeah, I guess it would be."

    If she only knew half of it... Now then, let's see how this works.

    He kneels and pulls out his pokedex, registering Houndour.

    "Hey Raum, nice to meet you. Looks like we'll be traveling together for a while." He then offers his left hand for the Houndour to inspect and will pet Raum if he seems receptive.

    Tyson softly shrugs his shoulders as he rises to his feet. "He seems friendly enough. Why wouldn't someone trust a Houndour? Regardless, if you trust him that's good enough for me."

    He points north of Oak's Lab and looks back to Cassandra. Hmm... was her eye always so green? "Route 1 is that way."

    "I haven't been in Pallet long but I've seen just about everything I there is to see here. Well, everything except for the Gym I guess. Unless you have anywhere you want to visit or anyone you still wanna say goodbye to, I'm ready to get started too."

    If Cassandra has no objections Tyson will lead them outside the city and onto Route 1.

    "So Cassie, you from here?" he says as he looks sidelong to his companion.

    The small devil dog sniffs tentatively at Tyson's hand and around his shoes.

    The pokedex pings and says in an electronically rendered voice: "Houndour, A Dark/Fire Type Pokemon that hunts in packs, using barks, howls, and other vocalizations to coordinate to frightening effectiveness." An artist's rendition of Houndoom has appeared on the screen in your pokedex.

    Raum tilts his head to the side and squints at the pokedex.

    Cassandra smiles as Tyson greets Raum. This was her and her Houndour's first time really outside the temple; they'd seen more in their short journey to Pallet City than they's seen pretty much their entire lives.

    "My father told me that some people don't like Houndours and Houndooms. Something about criminal teams using them, or something?"

    She follows Tyson out to Route 1, conversing with him as they walk. "I'm from just outside Lavender Town. My grandparents own a temple, which my parents help them take care of. What about you? You said you hadn't been in Pallet long."

    "Me? I'm from Fuchsia City. Both of my parents work as Pokemon Rangers at the Fuchsia City Safari Zone." Tyson pauses to consider something for a moment. "Now that I think about it, this is probably the first time I've left Fuchsia in years."

    A thought comes to Tyson as he looks to Cassandra and Raum. He reaches to his belt and stops to release Kasumi from her pokeball.

    "And this is my partner Kasumi."

    Tyson pulls out his pokedex and registers the Froakie. He then kneels so that Kasumi can climb onto his shoulder.

    Kasumi quirks its head at Raum, allowing itself to be sniffed before hopping onto Tyson's shoulder.


    Professor Oak's lab is near the edge of Pallet City, it will not take long to reach route 1 and leave civilization behind you.

    OOC: The players are free to converse as much as they like before actually arriving at route 1, Players should roll perception.

    "This is Kasumi's first time leaving Fuchsia too."

    Tyson stands and begins walking again whenever Cassandra is ready.

    Perception Roll: 4

    As the group walks along Route 1 Tyson becomes caught up in their conversation and the general atmosphere. Very un-shinobi...

    "So we're all kinda of in the dark here. At least we're together for the first few days," Cassandra says.

    Perception: 15

    "I've never seen that kind of pokemon before." She points her new pokedex in the small blue frog's direction. "Where did you get her?"

    "She was a gift from Koga. I got her about a week ago. He thought she would make for a good partner."

    Tyson pets the small blue frog with a free hand.

    "She can be a little mischievous but I've gotten used to it."

    The name Koga sounds familiar, but she can't quite put her finger on where she'd heard it before.

    Gen. Education: 4

    "You've only had her for a week? Seems like you've known her longer to me."

    Cassandra pets her Houndour's head, scratching behind his ears just the way he likes it. "My parents got me Raum about two years ago, when I finally asked if I was allowed to have a pokemon. He was so small back then, I think he must've just hatched a few days before they brought him back to our temple."

    Tyson:

    After you make the comment about Kasumi’s behavior, she blows a large bubble and pops it. Loudly.

    Cassandra

    Your pokedex pings and recites the same information as Tyson’s about the frog.

    Raum growls contentedly.


    Spoiler: Tyson’s perception
    Show
    As you walk, you don’t notice any pokemon, except for a tiny grey bird pecking and scratching away at the dust on the side of the Route.



    Spoiler: Cassandra’s perception
    Show
    You hear a rustling off to the your left, through a gap in the trees you see a circle of strange mushrooms and a shiny object floating in the middle of it… it appears to be some sort of archaic key ring. There are also several pokemon scuttling about the clearing, seemingly tending to the mushrooms.



    Spoiler: Cassandra’s General Edu.
    Show
    You are unable to place the name. You feel you are missing a really big, obvious thing.

    Tyson lets out a small sigh after Kasumi bursts her bubble. "Definitely feels like it..." He gives the small blue frog a look. "I'm starting to realize that raising pokemon is a lot harder than it looks."

    Something catches Tyson's eye as the two walk along the route. Hmm... a pokemon?

    Pokemon Edu.: 6

    He pulls out his pokedex and registers the bird.

    Cassandra does the same thing, but in the opposite direction. She keeps her voice low so she doesn't scare the wild pokemon, but her excitement can't help but leak through. "Wow Tyson! Look at this!"

    Pidov are fairly common, at least around fuschia city, the flocks can put up quite an annoying racket.


    OOC: Tyson may open Cassandra’s previous perception roll, now that it has been pointed out to him.

    Cassandra:

    Your pokedex buzzes in your hands, the phrase “SUBJECT NOT FOUND” appear on your pokedex’s screen in blocky yellow text.

    You will need to move closer to scan the pokemon.
    Spoiler: Pokemon Edu:

    The tiny floating object is a Klefki, a Steel Fairy with a fondness for keys. It is surrounded by several Paras tending a mushroom patch.



    Party:
    neither the Pidove nor the pokemon in the woods appear overtly hostile at this time, what do you do?


    OOC: Players are reminded that should they enter combat, the posting requirement will increase to a minimum of once per day.

    "Oh, a Pidove!" Tyson's eyes light up at the sight of the tiny bird. He quickly turns his attention to the other pokemon once Cassandra points them out.

    Pokemon Edu.: 7

    "I've seen Paras before but what is that?" He hears Cassandra's pokedex fail to register the unknown pokemon due to distance. "Looks like we'll have to get closer."

    "But first..." He looks back to the Pidove. "I'm going to see if I can make a new friend."

    OOC: Tyson wants to try and persuade the Pidove to join him. Though if Cassandra would like to try and catch it feel free. (There are plenty back home in Fuchsia)
