    "Wow Tyson!" Cassandra says in almost a stage whisper. "Look at all of these pokemon! This is so cool."

    Just seeing all of the different kinds of pokemon and being out on the bright sunshine while walking leisurely next to a beautiful river is enough to lift Cassie's spirits back to the high that they were at when she started her trip. Her face hurts from all the smiling she's done in the past few hours.

    OOC: The thing Casandra is most interested in is the egg. Especially if it seems to be in any danger. Were there any rapids we saw while we were walking up-river?

    The only pokemon you recognize without consulting the pokedex is the sleeping Oddish, a grass/poison type pokemon that seems to be relaxing in the cool mud, and blissfully unaware of the bug floating above it... getting closer.... closer...


    Spoiler: Egg stuff
    Show

    The body of the egg is black, with a red cap and a jagged silver stripe around the body, you recognize the egg for what it is. it contains a Pawniard, a Dark-Steel pokemon with lots of sharp blades protruding from it's body. you can... feel that this one is special somehow. While intently studying the egg, you realize that the lilipad it's floating on is actually attached to a pokemon. a Lotad - typically a pokemon that prefers ponds and lakes to rivers. The egg lolls gently back and forth on the lotad, and doesn't seem in any danger of pitching over into the water. You remember that there were rocks and the river was moving at a fair clip back at the destroyed bridge.

    Cassandra gently prods Hat awake on top of her head. "Alright buddy, you see that egg over there? I want you to fly over there and land on that lilly pad as gently as you can, then wait for my signal, okay?"

    Once Hat flies off, Cassandra will take off her backpack and wade out to the center of the river and wait for the Lotad to get closer. When it's close enough that she thinks she can get the egg, try to grab it. If the Lotad resists, she'll have Hat use Astonish and auto-flinch the Lotad of it's unaware of Hat's presence and grab the egg from the lilly pad, then get back to shore as quickly as she can.

    Hat lands on the lotad without incident, not even disturbing it's wake or causing a ripple as it floats on.

    The lotad doesn't react to you removing the egg from it's pad, and though you slip a bit on the return trip, you reach the shore without incident. The egg is lighter than you'd expected, given how heavy the pokemon it will hatch into will be..

    Once the Oracle is safely back on shore, she'll call for the Swablu to come back. She pats his head with her free hand as she says, "Good job, Hat. He didn't even feel you land on him."

    Cassandra inspects the red and black egg for any damage, turning in gently over in her hands. "You were a lot easier to get than I thought you would be. I wonder if that Lotad even knew you were on him."

    Cassandra:

    As you slosh back onto the shore, the large red insect hovers down onto the Oddish, clamps its legs and jaws around it, then speeds off, the oddish begins shrieking and struggling, but cannot escape the other pokemon's grasp.

    Across the river, the Headphone-sphere and purplish frog grow loudly at each other. then the frog belly flops onto the mud mound, it thrashes, flinging mud everywhere. the Headphone- sphere bounces its way into the water and works up a lather.

    The egg appears intact, although it's slightly damp where it'd been leaning against the water-logged lotad, the egg doesn't feel fragile, like you'd expect.

    Having stood in the river long enough to bump the lotad out of the way and collect your egg, you feel confidant that you could wade across here with little risk aside from getting soaked

    Tyson laughs. Looks like someone's in good spirits.

    "Yeah, they're everywhere huh?"

    Tyson pulls out his pokedex to register the pokemon in the surrounding area.

    After Cassandra and Hat have secured the egg Tyson will call out, "How's the water?" He lets Kasumi out of her pokeball and directs her toward the river.

    Show


    Squirtle, the Tiny Turtle Pokemon, during battle, this pokemon hides in it's shell and sprays water at it's opponent at every opportunity.

    Slowpoke, the Dopey Pokemon, it is said that there is a five second delay between sensory stimulus, and a reaction in slowploke's brain

    Croagunk, the Toxic Mouth Pokemon, Croagunk has poison in its cheeks and can spray poison from its fingertips. It also makes noise by expanding its poison sac.

    Tympole, this small tadpole like pokemon can communicate by vibrating it's cheeks, creating sound-waves imperceptible to humans.

    Yanma, the Clear Wing Pokemon, it's capable of moving its wings fast enough to generate a shock-wave that can shatter windows

    Lotad, the Water Weed Pokemon, typically inhabits lakes and ponds, it is known to sometimes ferry other pokemon that can't swim across on it's incredibly buoyant lilipad shaped head

    Oddish, this small grass type pokemon is typically found wandering through forests, scattering pollen as it does so.



    Party:

    After Cassandra has her egg settled, the pair of you easily cross the slow-moving river, only slipping once or twice on the rocky bed. The Croagunk waffles around in the piled up mud until it's rolled over and facing you, reclining in a the seat it's made for itself in the mud. The water has been churned to froth around the Tympole that still glares at it from the river, although it seems somewhat distracted by your crossing.

    "It's a little cold," Cassandra says as they cross the river. "But not unbearable."

    When they're on the other bank, the Oracle will release Raum from his pokeball once again, and set off with Hat back on her noggin.

    Raum sniffs around and then heels to Cassandra, he sniffs at her damp clothing and then looks up at her, head quirked to the side.

    You stand on the Viridian side of the creek now. The Tympole has nudged itself up onto the bank again, and the Croagunk has stood up on the mudpile, it's puffed itself up and it's cheek-pouches are full of air as they stare at you both.

    You have approximately 5 hours of traveling light left...

    Tyson's eyes meet the Croagunk's and he looks to his pokedex to look over it's entry.

    Hm, could be useful...

    He reaches for a pokeball on his waist and let's Pidove out of it's pokeball.

    when Tyson's Pidove comes out, both the Croagunk and the Tympole tense up.

    The Tympole springs into action first, bouncing its way in front of the Pidove and vibrating wildly. the mud dimples around it, and the menacing growl of a much larger pokemon can be heard in the vibrations. Pidove visibly cowers away from this display.

    Croagunk closes on the Pidove, obviously trying to take advantage of Tympole's distraction. It scampers up next to it and leaps in it's face, it's face darkened and scary!

    Party:

    After collecting your pokemon and your new catches. You proceed back towards Viridian, trying to make the most of your remaining daylight.

    on your way back to Route 1, you pass by the Slowpoke again, the magikarp is gone....

    setting foot back on the packed earth of the Route, you see a spherical, slightly translucent green blob near some mushrooms at the treeline. you feel a slight buzzing at the base of your skull.


    three hours later, a pack of Ratttata scurry across the road. there looks to be about twenty of them in total, most of them move on into the brush, a handful, no more than 5, stop and look at you.

    at length, the sun begins to set, you press on, hoping to reach viridian before dark. you crest a hill and see the twinkling lights of Viridian before you...

    it's a least another three hours away... and night is falling, there's barely enough light to make a decent campsite by.

    you could press on to viridian through the dark, or camp and get there first thing in the morning.


    what do you do?

    Tyson will immediately begin to look around when the buzzing begins to find it's source. If he spots the green blob then he'll investigate but from a cautious distance. There's no reason to get any closer than one has to.

    As the pack of Rattata pass by Tyson will take out his Pokedex to register one that stops to look but will wait for them to pass.

    "No need to bother the wildlife anymore than we have today right?" looks to Cassandra and laughs.

    Tyson:

    Keeping your distance, you examine the green blob and observe that it is mobile, within the blob is a pale-green sherical body with a crease dilenating it into two hemispheres. Each hempisphere has a small black oval on it, and the body is broken up by a large pink triangle... a corkscrew shaped yellow appendage extends from one hemisphere.

    as you observe, the blob envelopes one of the mushrooms, the buzzing in your skull solidifies into vaguely intelligilible speech, a toddler-like foice very clearly says in you skull.
    Hom...

    the blob shifts and begins to envelope another mushroom. "Haaaaaaa-ohm."

    the blob does not react to your presence.

    Party:

    You camp, for safety, just off of the packed earth of the road, barring tragedy or unforeseen catastrophe, you should be able to reach Viridian City within a few hours of setting out in the morning.

    from there, you will have the opportunity, if you wish, to branch out on your own, confront other trainers, and challenge your first gym.

    Three Days Ago...
    It's finally here... after years of study, and months of waiting, fingers crossed... You have been approved to begin your Pokemon Journey. It begins here, at Oak's Laboratory in Pallet City. You are admitted to the compound without incident, and lead to an auditorium where Oak and a trainer you recognize from last year's league championship: the current Pallet City Gym Leader: Sergei.

    A boy in the front row who's clothing bears the markings of the Fuchsia City gym mouths off at the professor, prompting Sergei to identify himself. His theatrics aside, the registration process passes without incident and you are issued a shiny new pokedex from Professor Oak. immediately afterward, he informs you that you'll need to be paired off with another trainer for your safety - this is a safety measure enforced by the league itself, at least until you reach Viridian City, after that you are free to proceed however you wish.

    Oak skims through the names on his clipboard, seemingly picking teams out at random. "Ken!" Oak says, looking up and scanning for you. He points at a blonde opposite the aisle and says "You'll be paired with Lucille."

    You don't really pay attention after that, to busy sizing up your new partner. She looks to be the youngest one here, dressed in slim-fit jeans and a tawny brown jacket with a fur-lined hood. she nods at you in acknowledgement and then stares at the front of the room, over Oak's head. her left leg is bouncing, she's obviously ready to get moving.

    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.

    Once outside, back in the compound, she nods at you again and introduces herself. "Hey, I'm Lucille Brightside. Don't call me Lucy. You ready to head out?"

    over the next three days, on the road together, you quickly learn just how driven Lucille is. she sets a punishing pace, you quickly leave every other team behind and press on past what might be the best time to stop for the night. Lucille catches a handful of Pokemon on the trip, but is pretty clear that she just wants a full team of 6 so she can strike out on her own in greater safety afterwards, the only Pokemon she seemed genuinely interested in catching was a Tympole that attacked you while crossing a river.

    When your idolization of Blaine and Fire-Types becomes apparent, she chides you for it. "Look, Fire types are great and all, and Blaine's done almost as much for the world of Pokemon research as Professor Oak, but I don't get why you'd shackle yourself to one type and doom yourself to failure like that." she shrugs "I mean, I guess it makes sense, if you're going to claim Moltres flew out of the mist and personally saved your wrinkled keester, you owe the type right?" she laughs.

    she looks into your eyes and calmly tells you "I'm training up to be the best. ever. not just better than anybody before me, but better than any other trainer, anywhere, from the earliest organized leagues til the end of time. everyone is going to know my name."

    Now...

    You're currently waiting at the Pokemon League Check-in window in the Viridian City Pokemon Center, the person who's supposed to be manning the window seems to be missing. On the bright side, you seem to have beat every other team of trainers by at least half a day.

    Lucille hasn't made any real mention of sticking together after the Check-In, but she hasn't been vocal about heading off on her own either. You could probably convince her to stay as a team if you wanted, if you could put up with her drive and keep pace with her on the road.

    well... here it is, the first day of the rest of your life. Your application to be a trainer was rejected almost immediately. You'd been told all throughout the process to allow for 2 or 3 months for processing. two days later, a second envelope arrived. it was your original application with a nice big VOID stamped over the reject notice. at the top, in a nice, disgusting green.

    Dear Lysandra,

    Oh. My. Gosh. I can't believe you gave up touring with the Liepards to become a Pokemon trainer! You were so cool. I have all of your albums and my room is covered floor to ceiling with LL Posters. I saw your name on the application in the rejection pile and asked my boss if it was, you know, you, THE Lyssandra Ferre. and he was goin on about how his kid kept playing the music too damn loud and I was like 'oh heck no.' and I fixed it for you!

    I'm gonna miss seeing you perform, but I know you're going to be an even more amazing Pokemon trainer! go knock em dead.

Teeth, despite having been with you his whole life, had never needed to be registered for official battling. You were admitted into the compound without incident. your lead guitarist, sorry, former lead guitarist had always insisted on heavy security at every performance. The heaviest you'd ever seen was a gig you played in Celadon, they might as well have been a 'keep out' sign compared to Oak's Lab.

    you're escorted inside without incident and fidget all the way through the brief orientation. Some knucklehead in the front row - a Fuchsia native, judging by his clothes, mouths off at the professor and as a consequence you're all informally introduced to Sergei, Pallet City's Gym Leader and runner up for Kanto League's Grand Champion.

    The big takeaway from the orientation is a new rule the Pokemon League has put in place for this year. You're required to be paired up with another trainer until you reach Viridian. after that, you're free to march to your own drum, but you HAVE to make it to viridian with whoever they shackle you with.

    enough names get called ahead of yours that you start to wonder if you're even on the list. at length, yours is called and Professor Oak says to you with a smile. "Ms. Ferre, you'll be traveling with Elliot, who up until his application was approved was one of my assistants here, please take good care of each other you two."

    Elliot, or as he introduces himself outside, Elliot Rowan Racine the Fourth, is a somewhat shabby, somewhat crazed looking dork in a lab coat, button up purple shirt, thick glasses, and unkempt hair that hangs to his shoulders. Over the next few days as you travel to Viridian, you learn that the boy, not really a boy, he's at least as old as you, is an absolute stickler for caution and analysis. He's also more than a little condescending with you when he talks, but you can't tell if that's because of your history, or if he's just an arrogant jerk to everybody.

    Credit where it's due, not that it makes him less irritating, but his brains and his Pokemon come in handy more than once on your trip to viridian. He's added almost a half day's time to your trip... but you've arrived in one piece, and with decent starting roster.

    Now...

    You're currently waiting at the Pokemon League Check-In window at the Viridian City Pokemon Center.... but the schmuck who's supposed to be stamping your hand ain't here yet... Elliot is muttering to himself, he seems to be listing every known type interaction interspersed with reasons the flunky could have been delayed.

    He's not said anything one way or another, but you feel like you could convince him to continue as a team if you wanted.... and you could put up with his increasing pedantry and arrogance. He hasn't really shared his goals with you during your trip.




    OOC: you are both waiting to spawn at the check-in station. Please wait for Tyson and Cassandra to arrive before you begin posting.


    Party:

    Next Morning....
    As you figured, it only took about three more hours of walking to make it to Viridian City. When you reach the outskirts of town, your pokedex chitters at you, informing you that you need to check in at the Pokemon Center. It's hard to miss, it's easily the largest building in town. a massive hemisphere building with a Caduceus and a massive Red-Cross stamped across it.

    There's a small crowd inside the Center. you recognize several faces from Oak's lab, so you must be in the right place. there's a shorter line of people standing at the main reception desk, speaking with a team of twins with very pink hair arranged into looped pigtails. To the left of the main reception desk, in the corner are a bank of video-phone kiosks for anyone wanting a higher-quality call home than the pokedex can offer. on the right are sliding glass doors that open up into a hostel-type area.

    Spoiler: OOC: For whole party
    Show

    All Players may now Post... Play nice kiddies.

    Early to bed, early to rise. Such is the way of the Ace Trainer (In theory). After an early training session and subsequent breakfast Tyson is ready to set off for Viridian City.

    OOC: Experience Training applied to all pokemon in party via Train the Reserves. 1 AP spent to activate "Ace Trainer". During Training Tyson will take the time to familiarize himself with Croagunk and introduce it to his other pokemon.

    "So this is the famous city of eternal green?" Tyson smiles as he and Cassandra reach the outskirts of town "We finally made it! Never thought the trip from Pallet would be this long though." Kasumi and Pidove ride on the boy's shoulders as the group enters town.

    When his pokedex chitters Tyson pulls it from his pocket and reads over the message. "Looks like our first stop is gonna be the Pokemon Center."

    Unless Cassandra wishes to make a detour Tyson will head directly to the Pokemon Center as instructed (record this moment for posterity as it's unlikely to happen again).

    "So who were we supposed to check in with exactly?" he asks Cassandra.

    When Tyson comes out of his tent, Cassandra is already awake, cooking a simple breakfast of oatmeal and dried fruits. She offers him some after his training session, and then trains her own Pokemon. She's ready to set off after she checks to makes sure the eggs is still wrapped up and secure in her backpack.

    OOC: Experience training applied to Reks and Raum. Agility training activates for everyone though.

    "It is very green," Cassandra agrees as the enter the town. Raum and Reks follow at her heels. The two have been roughhousing a bit on their walk, but it seems mostly like just play. The Oracle follows Tyson to the Pokemon Center, drinking in the sights and sounds of so many people.

    She'll point out the line to the two pink-haired twins when Tyson asks. "I think we're suppose to see them," she says. She goes and stands in line.

    "Well we made it! Guess this is where we part ways or stay as a team if you like. Had actually planned to go out alone after this or maybe meet some of the other trainers from the Lab. What about you?"

    Ken tries to appear sincere but makes no attempt to at convincing Lucille to stay as a team. Instead he looks around to see if there is anyone he would want to speak to. Maybe that one Fuchsia City guy might be interesting to talk to. Cinnabar and Fuchsia are somewhat close. He begins to look around to see what all Pokemon each trainer has out, taking care to look for anyone with a fire-type since that would start a decent conversation. He doesn't think he can stand being around Lucille for much longer, he was thinking about grabbing some headache medicine if he had to. And just like that he turned around and saw the pair walk into the center.

    "Well then, actually I'm going to go off on my own. Good luck at being the best Lucy!" Ken walks off towards the Oracle and Fuchsia City native. "Guess it's time we try to make some new friends huh Zippo?" He reaches into a pouch on his belt with his left hand and pulls out a small snack for the Cyndaquil riding on his right shoulder, patting its head as it eats. As he walks up he recognizes the Pokemon following the Oracle. That's a Houndour and a Nidoran! he begins to think to himself, feeling the need to pet the devil dog.

    "Hi! It's nice to meet you two, my name's Ken! This here is my partner Zippo." He points to the Cyndaquil on his shoulder. He also holds out his hand for a handshake. "What are your names? Also may I pet your Houndour? Wonderful fire Pokemon!"

    He waits for permission from the trainer.

    OCC: Ken is an 18 year old male, with an average build, light tan skin, medium length black hair, and light brown eyes. He stands 5'8". The bright crimson vest stands out with a volcano badge emblem on the left breast with a white background. Underneath he wears a plain black tee-shirt, appearing to be tucked into the black cargo pants held up by a dark brown belt with a small pouch on the side. His red and white tennis shoes stand out against the black clothing. He also sports black leather fingerless gloves on each hand.

    He waits for permission from the trainer.
    At the mention of "pet", Raum trots over to the trainer and raises up on his hind legs, resting his front paws on the trainer's thigh. His tongue lolls out of his mouth as he waits for "pets".

    "Hi Ken," The Oracle says with a wave. "I'm Cassandra. That's Raum," she giggles, pointing to the devil-dog. "And this is Reks."

    At the mention of his name, one ear twitches slightly on the Nidoran, but he otherwise doesn't react. He's watching the crowd, spines raising and lowering as he sees each new Pokemon. Seeing this, Cassie returns the Nidoran. "I'm still working with him," she says.

    "Are you here from Pallet for the check-in?" she asks, adjusting her backpack.

    "Hello Cassandra, and hello Raum and Reks!"

    Ken lowers his hand to pet Raum, and nods at Reks. "At least he's very protective!" he laughs. "Yep just finished actually. Me and that girl Lucy," he points to the girl who is wearing the slim-fit jeans and tawny brown jacket, "We just got here maybe about half a day before everyone else. She just wouldn't stop!" He thinks for a minute while still petting Raum's head. "Actually I forgot, she doesn't like to be called Lucy but she was rather rude at one point. Full name is Lucille Brightside but the attitude seems to be lacking in bright side unless she's ahead of everyone."

    He looks back at the line. "Shouldn't be too long of a wait. Actually would it be alright if I walked out with you both when you're finished up? If not that's alright, still getting used to not having the ocean nearby. Oh I'm from Cinnabar Island. You guys?"

    Tyson follows Cassandra and takes his place in line. When approached by the new trainer he looks him over quickly and takes note of the Volcano Badge he sports on his clothing.

    "Yo! The names Tyson." He gives a mock salute with two fingers. He'll reach out and shake Ken's hand.

    "This is my partner Kasumi," he says looking at his Froakie, "and this is... Well she doesn't have a name yet. I'm still workin' on it." Tyson shifts his focus to the Pidove perched on his other shoulder who appears to be interested in the sights and sounds of the within the Pokemon Center.

    He pulls out his Pokedex as Ken speaks and registers Cyndaquil. When Ken mentions his partner will look in Lucille's direction.

    Perception check to see if Lucille is attractive: 14 (Yes, I just did that)

    "Sure, I don't see why it would be a problem." Tyson looks to his Cassandra for a second opinion. "Cinnabar Island huh? I'm from Fuchsia City."

    "Hello Tyson and Kasumi! With his free hand Ken takes out his Pokedex to register the Pokémon on Tyson's shoulders. "Figuring out names can be rough sometimes. Took until getting here to pick one for my other Pokémon!" Ken chuckles.

    At the O.K. from Tyson, Ken stops to think for a moment, realizing he had gotten excited about the Houndour and forgot part of the question he meant to ask.

    "Actually what I meant to ask is if you guys had planned to continue adventuring together, would it be alright if I joined up? I'm sorry I sometimes forget to ask the full question when I get excited. Really love fire types." Ken explains with a bit of embarrassment. "Also sorry for just springing that on you both just arriving. Fuchsia City? Not too far off from Cinnabar. Well sort of."
