The only thing I can do right now is return him to his Pokeball. His level of injury is worthless information. It is a 1 on 5 fight, so our numbers is our advantage.

I can quickly estimate the correct modif- STOP! I cannot. There are too many variables. Return Pokemon until it is 1 on 2, preserving the numerical advantage while decreasing calculation time.

...."Nory! Return 2 of your Pokemon!"

...."What!? We have it outnumbered! We should-"

...."Just .@$&)^#{.. do it!" Nory stared at Kind wide eyed for a moment. He had never heard Kind swear before, or even yell. Sure, he raised his voice during Pokemon battles, but that was just to be heard. What just happened was completely different. There was another explosion as Amp's Thunder Shock was blocked by a Rock Thrown.

....Amp seems to he doing better than anyone else right now "Return Lil' Sev! Return Buckets! Amp Charge!"

...."Charev, provided suppressing fire with Fury Swipes! Chol and Shootaf, return! One Totadile, two Totadile, three Totadile. Double Team! Nory!"

...."Got it! Amp, give it everything you got! Use..."

Spoiler:

The ellipses means that NGamerS picks what attack Amp uses. Also, comic of this coming soon.

What is he doing? Scyther versus a Rock-Type, is he suicidal?!"Double Team! Nory!"Correction: Genius. "Got it! Amp, give it everything you got! Use...Two Charges... Thunder Wave!" "Keep using Double Team Charev!" Charev was struggling. It was a matter of time before all the Double Teams in the world won't help him, paralasys not withstanding.

Nory trusted Kind with all his heart, but he had an idea he was itching to put into motion, and he wasn't the only one.

"~Gah! It really is true what they say about bugs!~" Charev wasn't listening, one hit and it's over, that's all he could focus on. Shemesh's train of thought, however, was all over the place. This has stopped being a test quite a while ago, she is just angry now. No, not angry, UTTERLY LIVID IS MORE LIKE IT! ~CHEAP tactics! That's what this is! CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!!~

Nory swiped his hand past his waist as he bent over, "Charge!", then straightened. And that's when it hit her. "~What kind of unmannered human chucks a ROCK at a POKEMON?!~"
A dirty Pokeball was laying on the ground behind her.
"NOW!!" Distracted, Shemesh was hardly quick enough to react to a particularly nasty Bite from a Lurking Striker. A tad confused, Charev used his Fury Swipes to cover for his comrade as she slithered away to a safe distance from the "Thunder Shock!"
.
.
.
Panting. All she could hear was her own mental panting. Why was panting even a thing she could concive herself doing? Well, they're clever she'll give them that.

Spoiler:
If you want to get a few more shots in, you can do that. Otherwise, feel free to write Shemesh's final words for this little saga. School is off for the rest of summer starting from the 20th, so expect my full attention! Well, almost full :p.
EDIT: I didn't wanna double post but I also really want you to see what I made:

It's my artistic rendition of Kind! Tucked-in shirt and bags under his eyes seemed rather par for the course. Any changes you wanna make? it won't be troubling to me, I promise! Ended up looking kinda fatherly... #AdventureDadKind

Spoiler:

1-2 = Very Bad (Crit)
3-6 = Bad (Hit)
7-10 = Good (Miss)

2d10 results in...
5 and 1

Sad Sorry  

"Charev!" Kind ran over to his downed Pokemon.

Charev slowly got to his feet with assistance and replied in between deep breaths, "~King Master, I am fine.~"

"Is everyone alright?" Nory asked while rubbing his eyes.

"Yeah, we are all fine. I think that the Solrock will not be a problem anymore."

"What on Earth happened?"

"Amp did... did something. I am not sure."

"~N-N-Nory~"

"Sev! Sev! Is that you?" Nory's sight finally returned and he saw what was before him. Oh no. Lil' Sev was lying on the ground in a awkward pose with burns dotting his body. His breaths were much too shallow and sparse. Nory sprinted past Amp, who was on a knee and clutching her chest while hyperventilating. "Sev! Come one, stay with me. SEV!"

Spoiler:

Please do not post anything. I am almost finished with the comic. I only have 1 more panel and some touching up to do.

Spoiler:

Lil' Sev does not look as good as the others, because I did not expect him to be in this fight. You know you are good at sneak attacks when you surprise the person who made the plan.

EDIT: I changed the last two panels because I did not like the way they turned out.

Spoiler:
I didn't do the whole fight, I may later, but here is just a little self-serving snippet. In the story that built most of Nory's character (it remains unpublished because i am too lazy to finalize the details into actual written form) there's a scene that ended up poetically similar to the Solrock fight, although I didn't intend for it. Basically, Nory wanted to go through an adventure in the Kanto region without his powered up pokemon from the previous adventure, Amp got pissed, followed him, and Thunder Punched Misty's Starmie in the gem to establish ownage.

Nory put Lil' Sev back in her Pokeball.
"Is he okay?" "She" "What?" "Sev is female. I thought you knew."
Kind and Nory heard a faint gravely screech as the Solrock rose.
"~Oh no.. You.. *huff* Don't...!~" Amp tried getting up to keep fighting, but was stopped by a combination of Nory's arms around her and the Solrock's words, interuppted with panting and gasping. "~You've done well. Truly you have the tenacious spirit I seek. You see~" Amp spat on the Psychic-Rock type. "~...You see, I am Shemesh, servant of Lunala. I believe you are the correct candidates for my mission.~" Nory was clutching Sev's Pokeball and sobbing I did this. Me and my stupid plans. Should've just listened to Kind. "~..Umm.. I. I need you to.. W-Would you appreciate healing?~" The look Amp gave Shemesh at that moment was one she continue to puzzle over for about a month, but she got the message. "~Ahot!~" A chansey came from the woods, treating the injured out of their Pokeballs and then asking to see Sev. When she was sent out, more Chanseys joined. Nory couldn't look. "~uhh... You may rest a day in the town before I speak to you again, here. This is a matter of safety among the Legendary. Be cautious.~"

No one wanted to return to that Solrock, but a matter concerning Legendary Pokemon was Important, not to mention intriguing. Charev was the first to support the idea. Shootaf followed suit, and Chol was not one to disagree with the Quilava. Buckets took a neutral position, once it was clear comedy was unwelcome. Amp had nothing to say, but the fact she is against the idea was voiced perfectly already.

The Pokemon Center's nurse had assured them Sev will be alright, especially with the care those Chanseys gave her. Nory remained silent throughout most of the ordeal.

The Pokemon Whisperer was having a really good day today! He managed to wake up early before his alarm clock, he had time for a nice breakfast, he was just SO full of energy! He came to the Center and began the usual. First just some travelers wanting to bond with their Pokemon, than the competetives spouting off about "Friendship Values" and "good Normal-Type STAB". Than a group of Pokemon came to try and deliver their trainers a message, and he delivered it as best he could. "From what I could gather, they want you to meet someone out of town tommorow. Would you know who that is?" "Yes, thank you." Kind offered the man a small tip, and returned to fussing over the events in his mind.
Nory sat. Sev was fine, medically speaking. But she was so unusually tired. So she slept, in his arms. He remembered when he was younger, he would pass her from hand to hand with each of her crawly, snappy movements he was so used to. *sigh*

Spoiler:
Ahot = Nurse. No worries, Sev will get better, just piling on some drama. Also Sev is female. I'd like it if you could do another of Kind's inner monolouges, they're always so unique and well written!

Re: Generic Trainer rp

Post by Kindoflame on Wed Jun 28, 2017 12:40 am

I know this is going to sound weird, but I want whoever comes next to make their post before reading mine.:
....It is 10:28. Kind is studying the wall, lying in his temporary bed. I have had a long day. I must sleep for tomorrow.

....It is 11:03. Kind is studying the ceiling, resting his head on a new pillow. I spent all of yesterday thinking of Solrock and reached no conclusions. More information is required; more information will be available tomorrow. There is nothing I can do right now. Therefore, I should go to sleep.

....It is 11:57. Kind is studying his issue of Nature, sitting at a desk. Reviewing these papers should help me relax and fall asleep.

....It is 12:42. Kind is studying a rather difficult physics problem, using one of the Pokémon Center's computers. Thank goodness for Kongregate. These puzzle games are so much fun. These will definitely help me get to sleep... Lying is wrong, even when it is to myself. I know very well that looking electronic screens makes it harder to go to sleep.

....It is 1:25. Kind is studying his thoughts, pacing up and down a 5 meter long hallway. I know that I will not be able to sleep until the mystery of the Solrock is solved. I've already downed 10 melatonin pills and still don't feel tired. Kind let out a sigh of defeat. Let's take it from the top then.

.....Solrock was attacking us without a trainer ordering it. Therefore, it is most likely a wild Pokémon. By a far margin, most Pokémon attacks on .....humans are provoked by the human trespassing into the Pokémon's territory. However, we were near a road, and aggressive wild Pokémon do not .....claim territory near roads, because they do not want to deal with humans. Perhaps this Pokémon was young and had not learned this fact yet? No, .....its strength indicates that it must be very experienced. This incident was not initiated by a territorial misunderstanding.

.....Solrock attacked when we were eating lunch. All of mine and Nory's Pokémon were out. It was at a huge tactical disadvantage. Yet, it used the .....element of surprise to attack the humans instead of the Pokemon. Between STAB, the double type advantage, the decrease of Charev's blocking .....ability caused by the nature of a surprise attack, the general power of the move Rock Slide, the general power of a Solrock's physical attacks, and .....the general power of that particular Solrock, Charev would have fainted from the hit. Charev is a Bug Type, so he presents a threat to Psychic Types .....like Solrock. Still, the Solrock made Nory and me, the humans, its primary targets. It must have a bias against humans.


....Well congratulations to me. I successfully deduced the same fact 5 times in one day.

.....A Pokémon having a bias against humans can result from many things; poachers' attempts to kidnap it, urban crawl destroying its home, a .....complete ~#@%*(% killing a friend or family member, et al.

.....On the other hand, this Solrock wishes to meet with us again. I believe that my Pokémon wish to tell me that this meeting will be more peaceful in .....nature. A Pokémon with a bias against humans, especially one who's bias is so strong that it motivates violent towards humans, should not want to .....have a meeting with humans. I must reconcile these two facts.


....But I can't! I simple am not able to do this. If I were smarter, if I studied more, if I was just a better person, then I could solve this. BUT I CAN'T! I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't. I can't I can't I can't I can't


...."~King Master, are you alright?~" Kind spun around in surprise, not realizing that Charev was awake.

...."Charev? Did you want to get a mid-night snack or somethin'?" Charev responded by shaking his head. "Oh, is there something else you wanted?"

...."~King Master...~" Charev extended his right arm and lightly touching Kind's cheek for a moment. "~...you have been crying for almost 10 minutes.~" The tears on Charev's blade glistened under the florescent lighting.

....Kind quickly turned to the side and wiped his face with his sleeve. "I'm sorry. You're upset 'cause I woke you."

...."~I can never be upset with my king.~"

...."You're probably disappointed in me now." Kind slumped next to the wall. He buried his face in his knees and covered his head with his hands. "I acted all tough and mighty when we first meet, so you joined me. Now you know how weak and pathetic I am. You'll leave now 'cause you don't want such a despicable person to be your trainer."

...."~What? No, I would never abandon my king.~"

...."I won't stop you. Just let me give you some food for the trip. It could take awhile and you shouldn't waste time gathering food. It's the least I cou-"

...."~STOP IT! I am not leaving you! You are not pathetic or despicable! You are a great trainer and a great King.~" Kind stopped talking, but did not move. "~King Master, tell me what is wrong and I will help you.~"

...."Are you saying that you are not leaving?"

....Charev lowered himself to one knee, folded his arms behind his back, and bowed his head until it almost touched the ground. "I will never abandon you."

....Kind didn't even look up. "You're only saying that 'cause you feel honor bound to me. If you went back your swarm wouldn't accept you. You don't actually want to stay."

....Charev was shocked into silence. Does- does King Master really think that about me? Without saying another word, Charev walked to the nightstand. He wiped away a single tear and retreated into his Pokéball. Kind looked up only after he heard the Pokéball close. He saw the dot of bitter water that was the mix of his and Charev's tears; that is when the sobbing started.

Some suggestions for NGamerS:

I think that this is an excellent opportunity to add some depth to your characters.

Nory is blaming himself for sending out Lil' Sev. How does Nory deal with this failure as a Trainer, in the sense that he made a strategic error in a battle. If you wanted to do this, may I suggest that you put Lil' Sev in a private room with Nory at her bedside.

Lil' Sev was really badly hurt by a teammate. How does she handle this traumatic experience?

Amp accidentally using Discharge,* but hurt 2 allies. The happy experience of using a move for the first time has been sullied by negative consequences. Perhaps Amp decides to never use Discharge again, or is afraid to fight at her full power.

Buckets was easily defeated by a Pokemon he had double Type advantage over. Then someone with a Type disadvantage dealt the most crucial and final blow. This is fairly embarrassing. Furthermore, Buckets has been on the team for 9 days; he is still trying to make a good impression and prove he is a valuable teammate. He may now be worried that they think he is weak.

*To be clear, just because Amp used Discharge does not mean that she knows it. She only did it in an extremely stressful situation and after using Charge twice. Plus, she needs to practice the move until she can do it at will, control it, and commit it to muscle memory.

Sev was speaking to herself again. It had become a bad habit, she's afraid Amp has picked it up as well. To be fair. Nory started it.
She wasn't in pain right now. But she needed to let something be known, albeit to noone.
"~Do you believe in the idea of a "Starter" pokemon Nory? The idea that one pokemon is more important than it's teammates because they were first. They have to remain in the team. And they trump everyone with their strength. They stand alongside their trainer and get looked up to. '~She was here first. The prodigal partner. She's so important.~'
.
.
.
I don't like that idea. When it's just us I feel comfortable. Like right now. It always impressed me you could fall asleep on your knees like that, just resting your head on something. And let me pretend your listening. Even if you were you wouldn't know what I'm saying. But when there's other people, I go away. In the shadows. Self-dependant. I don't think that partner material. Not in a team. But Amp. She took charge. Heh heh. It's weird. I'm not that upset. Your plan made sense, I just failed to meet expectations.~" She pat him lightly on the head with her bladed tail. "~I'll be out of your hair soon.~"

Nory was ten years old when he went on his very own Pokemon journey. And as many trainers do, he had to choose his very first Pokemon to accompany him. In his parent's ranch there were many Pokemon, a wider variety than a professor could offer. But what has always intrigued Nory most, was talk of a snake in the nearby grass. He took it as his challenge to catch it, and it was the first challenge he completed along his journey. How long it took, he could not remember at this point, but he knows it only took a moment for him and his Seviper to bond. He had heard of the snake for several years now, but against his own expectations, his brother decreed it was a rather fraile Seviper overall, and he suggested that he take one of the rowdier Mareep they had, which was causing problems for them as is. And he said yes. And although he started with two Pokemon, one was first. One was his partner. And the other. His dearest friend.

Amp was feeling many emotions during her talk with Buckets. as she recounted her tale of the fight, and how she felt afterwards.
Buckets was bummed he didn't get to do much, but he remained hopelessly opptimistic none the less! A brave smile in the face of crushing depression and envy is a sign of good things to come he was suddenly, endlessly, convinced! So absulutly, utterly convinced that he had forgotten to listen to his woolen companion. What was she saying?
"~-andimreallyfreakingoutandmaybealsobugknightdudegothurtandidontwanthertobemadatmeHELP!~"
"~Uhh.. Umm.. C-care to repeat that, light speed? Heh. Hehheh...~"
Amp took a deep breath.
"~Well, it's just that... Sev and I never really talk. Not that either of us are very good at it. To be honest, I think this is the most I've ever told someone of anything. Usually I just.. I fight a lot? I love it when I fight because it's my way to express myself. Like your puns. But it hurts people. And this is the first time it. HURT people. MY people. I'm so psyched that I could do that big powerful move, and show up Shootaf, and beat a huge Solrock... An-And I shouldn't feel bad about them, right? 'Cause they're okay! So I shouldn't.. I was just doing my job. I shouldn't feel so guilty right?~"
"~Uhh.. I mean. Don't beat yourshelf up about it??~"
"~GAH! AWFUL EMOTIONAL SUPPORT, THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE!!bye!~" And she continued to grumble her way outside.
~Great~ Buckets thought. ~I guess I really am useless~

Spoiler:
I actually read what you wrote before writing this, but the little notice wasn't there yet :p. For clerity sake, the one that was first was Sev, who is also his dearest friend. Amp is the partner. They both ran off. Nory and Buckets are travelling solo for a post, I'll have a little "heart to heart/passing of the torch/sister talk" between Sev and Amp later. I'd also like to use this moment to give some other people a chance to join. I propose that I'll make a post, either here or as a new subject on the rp sub-forum, telling people that they can come here, and maybe get some info out of TriShade about their plans. Your thoughts?

...."What were you thinking? No, don't answer that. It is clear that you WEREN'T! Are you a special brand of stupid, or does Lugia only hire the dumbest to make himself look smarter?

...."Hey! Don't you dare talk that way about my master, or I'll mount your head in his undersea cave as a trophy!"

...."You think he will even want to hear the name Shemesh after he learns how badly you messed up!"

...."Listen, we can fix this."

...."Really! Tell me 'O Great and All Knowing One'; tell me how 2 Pokemon are supposed to do the impossible."

...."It is not impossible. We can talk to the humans telepathically. Psychic Type Pokemon communicate with their trainers all the time."

...."You and I both know that a mental bond like that takes weeks, sometimes months to form! Even then, the strongest bonds can only transmit emotions and images."

...."You're exaggerating. My master has talked in clear words to humans he barely knew before."

...."Lugia has been training for millennia! Millennia! If I did not know any better, I would guess that you were hatched last Wednesday."

...."Well... We can have the Pokemon Whisperer translate for us."

.... "HOW CAN ANYONE BE THIS STUPID! We weren't even suppose to let them know they were being tested, and you want to go and tell the whole story to some 2-bit hack. I am sure that Aleph would absolutely love that idea."

...."Maybe we should just not go?"

...."Imagine if some stranger attacked you, offered to explain why later, and then never explained why. Is that the type of Pokemon you'd help out in the future?

...."...No, but-"

...."Exactly! That is probably the only option that will end with then never helping us."

...."Fine then! What do you suggest?"

...."..."

...."..."

Spoiler:

When I started writing, I realized that we had a problem. Shemesh offered to explain everything, but Pokemon cannot talk to humans. I tried to think of some solution to this that did not rely on some deus ex machina (e.g. Pokemon translates, psychic links). I was even uncomfortable with the Pokemon Whisperer, even though he was not particularly good at his job. I feel like we could have gotten that information across to Nory and Kind in a more creative way. I realize that any Pokemon story of considerable length with eventually have to use something like this, but lets try to hold out as long as we can. After all, necessity is the mother of invention.

I could only think of one possible solution, but I doubt I am a good enough writer to pull it off. Sorry, but I cannot tell it to you. I am hoping that you can think of something better, and once you learn what my solution is that will be all that you can think about. That is actually a bit of advice given to me by my engineering teacher. He was/is awesome. He had a 3-D printer and later got a laser cutter. When I had him, he was coaching 9 DI teams in his one room. Man, that was a sweet teacher... where was I. Oh yeah, if you cannot think of anything, just post some kind of "Everyone had breakfast and walked to the meeting place" kind of think. Maybe add some characterization by having Amp eat next to Lil' Sev.

P.S. I put my last post in a spoiler the day after I posted it, so you must have read it during that time in-between. I made the spoiler, because I was afraid that the huge shift in tone might make you freak out. It was kind of like you asked to play Mario Kart, and I put in Silent Hill instead.

P.P.S. Rereading this, I realized that Yarayach is really digging into Shemesh, so I just want to make something clear. I am not mad or upset with you in any way. I did not even notice this problem until I starting thinking about the conversation the humans and Pokemon will be having. I figured that if this was a problem for me, the writer, then it could be a problem for the characters; and if I and going to make a problem for the characters, I might as well make it into a big deal. That is why Yarayach is so angry with Shemesh; it adds tension and builds up the conflict. It is kind of like how you made Lil' Sev really badly hurt.

Message to new players (including Trishade):

POST! If you have nothing interesting to say or do not even have a team planned out, just make a post where your character walks into a Pokemon Center and head straight to bed. Just do something so we know that you are interested.

Also, I think that it is alright if you make a character who is a Pokemon. Maybe Kind or Nory catches you later; maybe you are another servant of a Legendary looking for candidates. Heck, you could even be that Kangaskhan looking for Pecha berries back on page 1. A really creative idea would be to make your character a completely unrelated Pokemon that is in no way connected to this story in any way, but somewhere down the road our story and yours cross paths in a way you may or may not have planned out already.

Nory had woken up to find Sev missing. He was immediately ready to start a search party, before noticing Amp had gone off on her own as well. Best case scenario to look for Sev. Worst...

Kind had barely enough time to exit his own room before he had trainer all over his torso. Trainer and tears and.. Eww. The only thing that could set him off like that. No, no she couldn't have, she was doing so well, a Seviper of her age and condition could easil-Just shut up and hug him back!
"Uhh.. T-There there."
"I-Uh, she" Once Nory had gotten over his poor emotional state he was able to explain more fluently what happened. "That's... Good? I mean, she can slither around at least. Not far, I'm sure. Which is.. Um.. Bad?" Et tu, the English language? "Let's go look for- Oh god we have a Solrock to meet that's right. B-But I'm sure we can communicate our troubles to it. Somehow."
Nory had managed to take a deep breath. "No. No, it's fine. You can go. Buckets and I we'll... We'll figure it out."

After semi-forcing Nory to eat before going, Kind donned his hat and left to the specified meeting place. "...Nory couldn't make it... Nory's my younger companion, with the crazy hair."
Shemesh was just hopefull she could explain it properly. With one less head to figure it out... Oh Arceus. She had stockpile several stones outside of town earlier, some gathered, some of her own making. She used her psychic powers to arrange the stones beneath her into something which may look a bit like a human torso, than rotated her body up and down the Z axis. Paused. And rotated her body around the Y axis.
"..I don't quite understand the rock formation. Are you saying we can communicate with "Yes or No" questions?" Up and down Z. "That answer may have some holes in it, but I'll take it as a yes." Shemesh was at a loss of how to reassure him. She nodded yes again.
"Now than, allow me to confirm all the data we have so far:"
"~...~"
"That's about right."
Shemesh constructed a Genesect out of the rocks.
"What.. What is this? Is it a place?" She nodded no. "A statue? Do you want something from a museum?" No.
Shemesh tried moving the rocks a bit. Waving the arm parts, opening the mouth, using her powers to glow it's eyes. "...Are you trying to emulate a person?" No. "Pokemon?" An aggresive yes. "...I've never seen something like this before. It's like... Like a deformed Kabutops? Are you here on behelf of a sick Pokemon?" Two consecutive No's. Presumably to answer both questions. "...Is it a rare Pokemon?" Yes. "Very rare?" Yes! "...Are you here on behelf of a Legendary Pokemon?" YES! YES?! Yes. "..."
Kind had a lot of information to process, but the Solrock went on with her surprisingly succesful explanation. She wrapped the figure with a boxy rock formation. "It's.. Trapped?" No. "It's... Dead?" No. "..Hiding? Is it hiding from something?" Yes. "Can.. Can you tell me where?"
"~...~" No.
"..Well. That's.. Umm.. Could you SHOW me where? When I regroup with Nory and we both understand why you wanted us to come here and talk to you." Yes. Baby steps, Kind, you can do it. "Why is it hiding? Has it been attacked?" No. "Is it in exile of some sort?" No. "...Does it even really matter?" No. Kind could swear that nod had some smuggness in it.

Shemesh was experiencing a real test of patience with this human. ~You brought this on yourself Shemesh. Okay, let's try...~ Shemesh made a linking chain of small rocks with a big one at the end. "This looks like... A flail?" No. Followed by a short yes. And something not even Shemesh really understood. "...Sort of.. Like a flail?" Yes. "A... Wrecking ball?" Yes. "It's hiding spot is about to be teared down." Yes. "And you want me to do what? Stop it?" Yes. "..." This is insane. The only word befitting what this Solrock's plan is. Is utterly insane. "I.. How.. How am I supposed to do that?" Silence. "...Can't it find a new place to hide?" No. Kind had suspected as such. If it truly had to be in solitude, there aren't many places it could go. Traveling alone may prove dangerous. For all he knows, it's gigantic and slow, making moving too much difficult as is. "You showed me a wrecking ball. It's hiding place will be built on." Yes. "Will the place it is located in give me more insight as to the construction's nature?" ...Yes, she nodded after a pause. "Than I suppose we will regroup tomorrow. Again. Here." Yes. Yes.. ~Yes!~

Spoiler:
I'm not upset with what you wrote! Putting ourselves in a tough spot is always good for writing something unique, so long as it isn't inescapeable. To be honest, I had a solution for a little while before I got to writing because I was feeling a little off for honestly too long to excuse. And hey, if I don't force myself to write, I'll just keep feeling off anyway. Also, when I read your post about my decision to harm Lil' Sev, I was confused as all get-out (that's the expression right? that's an expression?) before realizing it was due to the thing that makes this rp so good to me: The miscommunication. You see, the panting line was meant to be Shemesh's, hence why she found it odd she could concive herself panting, which I just now realized can also apply to serpents XP. BUT! Now due to that I can write something really emotional with my characters! (i mean, i may, i don't know about can.) I was gonna write Nory's end too, but this went on a bit too long for that. That is to say it NEEDED to be long in order to make a game of pictionary a sufficent challenge for Kind. I had also toyed with idea of Unknown based writing, but it felt cheap, and I couldn't come up with anything more elegant than this. As you can see. Not very elegant. I may have pushed it with Kind's natural abillity of inference. Regarding Nory's storyline, I wouldn't object to you writing of his search for Sev and Amp (after all, I hogged your character for quite a bit as well) but I want the girls' moment for myself, since explaining everything I am (hopefully) gonna delve into would be a bit much (not to mention ruining the tension). In conclusion: BLUH BLUH HUGE POST!

....Nory tossed 3 Pokéballs into the air. There was a flash of light, followed by Buckets doving into his container while Shootaf and Charev looked around in confusion. "Guys, everything is okay. Kind lent you to me for the day. He is going to meet that Solrock, while we form a search party."


...."~Search party? Has someone gone missing?~" inquired Shootaf.


....Nory did not know what Pokemon said, but she had a pretty good guess. "Sev and Amp have disappeared. Sev is still weak so she couldn't have gotten far, and hopefully Amp is out looking for her."


....Bucket remarked, "~I don't think so. Sea was beating hershellf up over what happened yesterday pretty hard.~"


...."~You think she ran away?~" Shootaf asked with concern in his voice.


...."~No. Sea probably went for a walk and got lost.~"


...."Listen everyone, Kind printed out a map and marked it with the best places to search. I have no idea when or how he did this, but if it helps by find Amp and Sev, I don't care." Nory reached into his pocket and pulled out two pieces of paper. The first was a map covered in arcane lines and shapes of various colors; the second was a short essay titled 'Key'.


...."Umm, yeah. I got no idea what this means. Do you have any ideas?" The Pokémon took one look at the map, and shook their heads in unison. Nory angrily stuffed the map into his pocket. Stupid Kind. Why can’t you act like a normal human for once? "Forget about the stupid map. Let's just go." Shootaf quickly jumped in front of her. "Shootaf, stop being stupid and get out of my way! We need to get going." Shootaf pointed at each person and then a different direction. "Oh, you want to split up." The Volcano Pokemon nodded vigorously. "Good idea... and sorry for calling you stupid."


...."~No problem. I knew you didn't mean it. You're just stressed out. You don't even want to know how Kind would react if one of his Pokemon disappeared.~" Charev looked over his shoulder and shuffled his feet a little.


...."Me and Buckets will go that way, and you two go that way. We meet up back here at noon."

It is now.

I couldn't come up with anything more elegant than this.
Hey, my plan was to play a huge game of charades. This is leagues better.

I may have pushed it with Kind's natural abillity of inference.
No, not at all. Regarding the whole post, you absolutely nailed Kind's character. The only part of any of it I would change is when Kind guesses that a museum is involved immediately after asking if the picture is of a statue. Kind would see this situation as a challenge/ game, where the goal was to get all the information the Solrock wanted to tell him in as few Yes-or-No questions as possible. He would wait for a response after every Yes-or-No question in order to get the best 'high score' he could. The other times he asks 2 questions in a row, each one would have offered information that the other would not or one of them was not a Yes-or-No question.

"...Does it even really matter?"
That may be the most in-character statement Kind has ever made.

Amp set out to find Sev, but was unfortunately preoccupied taking out her frustrations on a tree. Followed by crying on a tree. Followed bOH GOD WHY IS IT SCREAMING?!


Amp's Tips!~ Wink #5: Before crying, check parameter for nearby Sudowoodo.

"~I am very sorry I startled you. Water has quite the adverse effect to my people. See?~"
"~Yes. I apologise.. I'll get going.~" "~Now now. Young one. You do not cry to merely get going later. Stay a while.~"
Amp reluctently agreed and set down near the elderly Pokemon. His wrinkled, flakey greyness almost made him seem even more tree-like than the younger specimens.
"~Would it make you more comfortable. To ask me a question before we speak. *cough* Of you?~"
"~...If you can't stand water, why do you pretend to be a plant?~"
"~...~"
"~D.. Did I touch a nerve?~"
As Amp was preparing to get up and leave the old rock croaked "~It's so Water. Grass. and Ground types will think we are Grass types. And so they stay away from us. While Flying. Bug. And Ice types come near. And get a good bop on they're gnoggin.~"
Amp chuckled as she was listening to his gravely voice. She could tell he enjoyed talking, despite not being able to breathe quite as well as he used too.
"~I'm sorry to tell you, a lot of people know this already.~" "~There's a sucker born every minute child. Now I get to ask you.~" He swallowed quietly "~A question. Why were you crying?~"
Amp buried her face in her own wool. "~A friend of mine...~" "~Speak up child. Have not established I am old?~"
Amp allowed herself half a smile "~A good friend of mine has gone missing. And.. It was after I'd hurt them.~" The Imitation Pokemon gazed upon her thoughtfully. He breathed. "Yet you still call them friend. An accident I presume?~" "~Yes.~" "~And do they know?~" Amp stopped.
"~Yes.~" She must know. If her trainer has half a brain she MUST know.
"~Well than. What does that have to do with anything?~"
Amp stared at the mon in disbelief.
"~Much like how you do not get going after a cry... You do not scamper off after an accident.~"
"~That... That makes sense. Thank you.~" "~Your welcome.~"
As Amp was leaving she realized she gotten a good look at him. Or his name for that matter.
She turned to face the crumbling, hunched figure, holding an impromptu wooden cane and brandishing a fake beard made of tree sap and red leaves. "~What's your name?~"
"~Selluh!~"
He turned and left.
"~...He actually met me earlier. Either he's senile or just a very playful old mon.~"
Amp turned slowly, before pouncing onto the slender figure before her. "~PAIN!!~"
Amp got up, took a step back and spread her arms to either side of body, breaking into a nervous sweat.
"~I got fried earlier. In case you forgot.~"
Amp was speechless and on the verge of tears. Lil' Sev rubbed against her companions stomach with her head, as they both fell to a comfortable repose.

"~...Amp?~"

"~...Yes?~"



"~..I'd like you to have something.~"
"~Ok, what is EWW OH MY GOODNESS WHY ON ME NOOOOO~"
Lil' Sev had to shake herself off a bit. Those burns made molting a difficult task.
"~Why Sev? Why do you do this? TnT~"*
"~I'm... Leaving, Amp.~" The sheep's eyes widened.
"~Wha-Um-No-Where?~" She held her friend gently in her arms "~..Don't~"
Sev could keenly sense the wetness on her fresh scales. "~I... I have to leave. I know I can't explain it well. I simply must.~" "~...Can you atleast try?~"

"~Do you remember the Mightyena attack?~"
Amp nodded. "~We were outnumbered. Some of my family on the ranch lost their lives that night. Yet I fought. It was right at my point of exhaution that a Seviper came to my rescue. And a much less cool Seviper also showed up I guess.~"
"~My, how have you not fallen head over heels for this mysterious beauty? I would've swooned right into their arms with my hand hanging on my forehead if I were you. And had hands. And they had arms. And I also seem to recall that that was the Seviper's only contribution. A sneak attack at the last second. And people got hurt because of it. Sound familier?~"
"~B-But this time only you got hurt! That doesn't count! I-Uhh, what about all the other times?~"
"~That was you. You are a fighter. I am a coward. We have not won any Gym Badges. We have caught one additional party member. I let Nory keep me out of Buckets' catching because of his ground typing, despite his lack of Pokemon. You wouldn't have done that. I climbed a tree to stike once than disappear. Like many times before. But I preformed one act of courage, as I saw the damage your sudden Discharge could make. I circled back to the Solrock and used myself as a lightning rod for your attack, lest Charev or our trainers get hurt too badly. And look where bravery has got me.~"
"~No! You can get better at fighting!~" "~I am more experienced than you by far. And yet I suffer. I am not meant to fight Amp.~" "~Than don't fight!~" "~We are the loyal team of a Pokemon trainer that sought to surpass the great people before him in combat. As passive as he is, a Pokemon that can't fight is a blight upon any team.~" "~Just stay! Please! Just be here! I.. I need you Sev. I can't do this without you. I can't be the best if you aren't there. It's... It's not worth it.~" Sev chuckled.
"~Than be the best for Nory. And Kind. And that kid Chol, and to rub it in Shootaf's face, and for Buckets to look up to you and become a fighter instead of just another clownfish.~"
...
"~And when you will become the best I'll be there to celebrate. No matter how much distance sets us apart. So look up. Wipe you face. And raise you tail a little.~"
Amp did as she was told. She felt some delicate movements on her tail. And heard some faint sounds of shuffling.
"~There.~" Amp looked upon her tail, which was now decorated with sheded scales, tied into a neat butterfly like bow at the tail's base. "~Selluh arranged a transport for me. I'm going back home.~"
"~At least wait. Wait for everyone to find us and say goodbye.~" "~And how long will that be?~"
Amp set with Sev in her lap in an oh so familiar fashion. "~With my luck?~" They relaxed as they watched the scenery, a river splitting in two and flowing ever onward. "~Shortly.~"

Spoiler:
*Sometimes words fail to express how emoticon-esque one's face can be.

Selluh headcanons: He pronounces his S'es with a little whistle. He learned a lot of complex ways to make exotic teas so he can teach people a lot of complex ways to make exotic teas. He hasn't changed his beard in two years and no one knows how it hasn't crumbled yet. It's honey and ginger, that's how.
There wasn't a second Seviper btw.
I have officially lost my interest in tildes.
Hey everybody! Let's play "Find the Symbolism!" Than we can guess whether or not it was intentional! It wasn't it just worked really well in a spontanious manner.
Amp tip number 1 is "Asking a Miltank for milk is considered very rude by most Miltank."
In case it wasn't clear Selluh is pronounced like "Sell, i am selling goods" and "Uh, i am stopping my sentence to stutter or something idk.

Nory and Buckets were the first to run into Lil' Sev and Amp.
Nory saw the girls huddled together, and as much as he wanted to run up to them and hold them close, he didn't. He saw Amp's face and started walking slowly toward them before sitting down near Sev, opposite to the Electric Pokemon.

Kind arrived with his team, once a short phone call was made to arrange a rendezvouz.
Everyone was silent and no one quite knew why. As they sat and looked at the sky, waiting for a countdown to end with no particular clock stepping forward to claim it.

Selluh stepped out of the woods to wave Lil' Sev over.
"~What's happening Shootaf?~" Chol asked as Nory embraced Sev and murmurs of gratitude and goodbyes spread among the party.
"~I think she's leaving now.~" Shootaf wasn't sure what was happening, or what to say. "~It's.. Been an honor.~"

Honchkrow descended, waiting for the Seviper to climb utop them. Amp watched the large bird fly away until they vanished completly into the sky. Not many words were uttered that day. They felt too precious at that time.

over all im just kinda "Meh" about this post. Don't know why, i just am.

....The next morning Kind and Nory walked to the meeting place sluggishly. Neither had a Pokemon out. It did not seem appropriate somehow. “Hey. I’m sorry for not telling you anything at the Pokemon Center. I didn’t want a eavesdropper to hear anything. Do you understand?”

....“Yeah.”

....“So, the Solrock used rocks to make a rock figure that looked like a Pokemon, but it didn’t look like a Pokemon. I mean, not a Pokemon I recognized, so I used the PCs at the Center to look up Legendary Pokemon and tried to find something that looked like it. Oh yeah, the Solrock said it was working with a Legendary Pokemon. I mean, it didn’t say it, but it said it. And I could not find anything. It had 5 limbs. I think. Probably. 2 legs and 2 arms and a something on the back that went over the head. Can you think of anything like that?”

....“Uh-uh.”

....“Okay. Yeah, sure. Anyway, so I looked up any modern monster sightings on those conspiracy sites that have black backgrounds and use 20 fonts on a page and found a few things like Slenderman, which looks like a person, but without a face and back-tentacles. but the statue had eyes and Slenderman doesn’t, but maybe the sighting are just not that accurate, which makes sense because they’re from cheap website run by nutjobs.” They pair stopped shuffling along, for they had reached a familiar sight. “So anyway, here we are. Maybe we should let everyone out so that they can run around and have fun. I mean, if you think that’s a good idea, ‘cause maybe we shouldn’t let them have fun right now. Not that having fun is a bad thing! You probably want Amp to have some fun to cheer her up and help her, uh, forget...

....“~Forget what?~” Shemesh the Solrock inquired, forgetting for a second that the humans would not understand.

....Oh thank G-d. “You’re here now. That’s great! I mean, it is good you are here now. What is the next step we need to take?”
....

Spoiler:

....Sorry it took so long for me to write this. I have been busy with college. I just aced my Physics final, so now I'll have a lot more time and energy for writing this. I also delayed things because I wanted this comic to be done. I am not entirely sure how long I have been working on it; lets just say that I would measure it in semesters.

....Shemesh formed a crude circle out of several stones left here. The top half was made of dark stones, while the stones on the bottom were much more pale. She then showed the humans the two halves separating. “You want us to call out are Pokemon. Should all of them come out?” Shemesh did a quick nod. “I understand. Shootaf, Charev, and Chol, I need your assistance.”

....After a moment, Nory pulled out two Pokéballs and unenthusiastically called out, “Amp and Buckets, come on out.”

....“~Good. Now that you are all out we can- Wait a moment? What happened to the Serviper who was traveling with you.~”

....All the Pokemon started looking at each other awkwardly. None of them could bring themselves to say their old friends fate. Chol started wiping small, salty streams off of his face. Amp was the one who shattered the silence. “Sev left. She went back home. She didn’t want any-” There was a quiver in Amp’s voice, “-anyone getting hurt because she was not a strong enough fighter.”

....Hearing the truth out load was too much for little Chol to handle. With stinging tears flowing down his face, Chol ran towards Kind, who responded in the only way he could think of; kneeling down and tightly embracing Chol.

....Nory did not have to look at the odd expression on Kind's face to know that he was confused. “I think that the Solrock asked about Lil’ Sev.”

....“Oh...” Kind squeezed tighter.

....Shemesh bowed and said, “~I am sorry. That was tactless of me.~”

...."~No.~" Amp responded quickly. “We need to deal with this and move on. Now tell us who you are and what you want.”

....“My name is Shemesh. I am a simple servant of Lugia, the Guardian of the Sea and Master of the Winged Mirages. To understand my purpose, you must first be informed of the situation. There is a group of Pokemon in serious danger. Humans are planning to build a new town on their land. Conflicts such as this are nothing new, and compromises involving the wild Pokemon living in the town as citizens are so standard that it is taken as a given in almost all parts of the world. The problem with this situation is that the native group of Pokemon are Legendaries. Along with several other Pokemon of significance, Lord Lugia has been looking for a human to act as the Pokémons' ambassador to the humans. The hope is that they will convince the humans to build elsewhere before the situation escalates. This is all made more complicated by the fact that the leader of the the threatened group distrusts all humans, because their past interactions with humans have been… traumatic. They have declared that only a human who has earned their leader’s trust my learn of the their existence.~"

....“~Is that why you attacked us 2 days ago? You were testing us?~” inquired Shootaf.

....“~Exactly. Unfortunately, Lugia is not convinced that the tests your trainers have passed will be sufficient to satisfy the leader’s high standards. Therefore we must present you with another test.~”

....Chol had calmed down and joined the other Pokemon. “~Ms. Shemesh, what’s a ‘test’,~” Chol asked naively.

....Seeing that Shemesh was having trouble forming an answer to the question, Buckets turned to the young child and said, “A test is like a game. One person tells you to do something difficult, and you win if can get it done. Usually a reward is given to the winner.”

....“~Okay. Oh, and thank you. What game are we playing?~”

....Shemesh tried to regain her authoritative status by firmly stating, “~There is a place that the humans have named ‘Tel Hogimeh’. You must discover its location and travel there.~”

....Buckets asked, “~Conch you shell us where this place is?~”

....“~I am afraid not, for that is part of the test. I must leave now. May the Great Diver watch over you always.~”

....“~Bye-bye!~” Chol cheerfully ringed out. No one else felt quite as chipper as the juvenile.

Amp tugged at Kind's backpack, attracting his attention. He lowered his bag and adopted a blank look as the electric sheep partially buried herself in the man's belongings.
"~Aha!~" Amp cried triumphantly. She spread a map of the Tychone region on the ground and stared at it for a long while, lost in deep concentration.

Finally, she spoke: "~I can't read.~" The groaning of her fellow Pokemon was not lost on the trainers, who were feeling foolish for assuming a Flaafy would be capable of using a map.

For a long time the humans and their other-species companions set. One group held a puzzle and another, a solution.
"~Why is everyone so silent?~" Chol said, after a while of occupying himself with other thoughts.
"~We are trying to figure out how to tell the humans that we need to go to Tel Hodgimeh. Without knowledge of writing, or of what Tel Hodgimeh is, we cannot communicate our next location to them.~"
Charev explained thoroughly. Chol whispered to himself as he studied the map, long and hard. No one wanted to tell him to stop, partially due to a feeling of defeat.
"~It's here!~" Chol exclaimed, pointing at the map. Kind knelt over and mouthed the words pointed to him by the stubby hand of a Larvitar. "Tel Hodgimeh? Do we need to go there?" "~Swimposeable! How could you posea-bubbly guess that?!~" "~Oh, Kind tought me!~" "~He did n-When??~" Shootaf said with unfathomable confusion. "~Well, whenever he reads to me I make sure to ask lots of questions about all the funny symbols. Now I know what they are!~" At the same time Kind realized he had infact tought a Larvitar to read. He never expected Chol's questions to bear fruit, but those musings were unimportant, first priority: Taking some notes about this absurd development!
"Sooo.... Going to Tel Hodgimeh, I understand?" "Oh, uh, yes.[size=10] Is it only Larvitars? Is Chol gifted??[size=13]" Kind managed to answer Nory in between mumbles.[/size][/size]
[size=10][size=13]"Welp."[/size][/size]
[size=10][size=13]"~*Kelp.~"[/size][/size]

....After thinking for a moment, Kind pointed to a city North-East of Tel Hodgimeh. "I think that we should head here next. Although it makes our path to Tel Hodgimeh sightly longer, it gives us a chance to resupply and exchange equipment."

...."Sounds like a good plan to me." Nory said energetically. "Let's get going!" The next 4 days went by rather uneventfully. The party had fallen into a rather consistent routine: wake up, eat breakfast, walk, eat lunch, walk, eat dinner, sleep. Neither Kind nor Nory had any reason to engage with the wild Pokemon in the area. Shemesh the Solrock was not seen again for she was off on another mission assigned by Lugia. Eventually they arrived at Lafua City.

....Nory looked around, making a point to stare at every other skyscraper that they passed. "Hey! Check it out! That one sky-scrapper is reflecting that other one, which is reflecting it! Its Sky-ception!"

....Kind walked through the crowded streets quite comfortably, with his trademark silence a sharp contrast to the loud and constant noises of the city and certain Pokemon. "Nory, Amp is doing it again."

....Amp was running around stopping to talk to every Pokemon she could see. This time she had cornered a young Wooper. "Hi! I am new in town! I love this city! I love all cities! They are so busy and constantly changing! Its like you never know what will happen next! Like, a whole gang could attack us right now and I'ld have to beat them all back on my own! Or there could be a thief right around that corner that needs a good clobbering!"

....Nory dragged Amp away from the terrified Wooper. After scaring 4 more Pokemon to the point of tears, Nory switched her out for Buckets. Considering he had never before been in a human town, much less a city, Buckets was handling the situation quite well. "findahappyplacefindahappyplacefindahappyplacefindahappyplaceWHERE'SMYHAPPYPLACE!"

If you were looking for the definition of relaxed, Nory's current mood is a sign your quest has not been in vain.
Bathing after days of walking through the region feels like a rare luxury. Simply the feeling of having less dirt, sweat, lint and oils stuck to your body is a kind of feeling none-trainers will never be able to truly appreciate. It is a sensation bordering on divine.
This place is really nice. Nory thought to himself, laying on a nice, fluffy bed in an otherwise small and empty room, bathroom not withstanding. Nory is not the kind of guy to muse on the exact economics of being a Pokemon Trainer, he understands them quite well. Nonetheless...

A majority of Pokemon trainers earn their money through gambles: The winner of a Pokemon battle gains some portion of money after defeating their opponent. Richer trainers maintaining a poor persona is a known issue in this world, which caused the widespread use of Trainer ID: A certificate, now partially digitized, documanting a trainer's earnings. Those come in the form of badges, ribbons, other prizes from known institutes and actual money. Underaged trainers, or those who operate without license, will typically put an equal sum of money at stake before the match, as opposed to the modern system, which uses a precentage of total amount of money and income. It is also common place to scavange for marketable plants, minerals and items typically held by Pokemon for additional profit at various outlets, although it has become a more discouraged activity now, due to a decreasing population of certain plants, and increased records of specific Pokemon species getting driven out of their natural habitat due to overeager trainers fighting them in mass to obtain rare items. Most notably, Farfetch'd in Kanto are being moved to the Safari Zone and having special laws governing them. Trainers are also privy to several goods and services, such as use of the Pokemon Center, discounts at some rest spots with trainers in mind, and basic aids such as Pokeballs and Potions are often provided to starting Pokemon trainers. Than there are Pokemon researchers: These trainers are given certain sums of money and supplies to conduct investigations regarding any subject deemed worthy by whoever is funding them. My research on the effect differant areas of living have on Pokemon, for example, is funded by Professor Elm from Johto."
Tzepora was listening with wide eyes and untold concentration. Nory was geniuenly impressed.
"So restocking just so happened to include helping your little cousin with her first Pokemon?" "As it naturally does."
Amp had her head up against a tree since about the second third of Kind's great onslaught of vocabulary, having scouted the area for unassuming Rock-types before hand. The comedy of her state was not lost on Shootaf.

Dear Non-Existant Readers:
I am sorry that this post took so long to write. The college semester just started up, so things have been pretty hectic. This is not actually the whole post. I had to split it so that something would get posted soon.

Anyway, NGamerS's last post actually comes after mine chronologically. Just think about it as a preview of what will eventually happen.

One

“Nory, can you please do me a favor.”

“Sure. What is it?”

“The Pokemon Center is 2 Blocks that way. Can you please take my Pokemon there?”

“No prob. Where are you heading?” Nory hurriedly added, “If you do not mind me asking.”


Two

“I am going to visit my kid cousin. They are in the other direction, so I figured that this would be the most efficient route.”

“What!?” Nory shouted in surprise, although they were already shouting in order to be heard over the city’s commotion. “We’ve been traveling here for days, and not once did you mention that you had family here!”

“You never asked,” Kind deadpanned.

“I asked you how you knew your way around so easily!”

“I told you that I had been here before.”

“Stop being such a wise-guy! You knew what I meant!”

After a carefully calculated pause, Kind replied, “I am sorry.”

“Just forget about it,” Nory said. He was quite tired and did not want to argue over pointless stuff. “Give me your Pokéballs.” He held out his hand.

Instead of handing his Pokéballs. over, Kind said, “My cousin Ibon is a lot of fun. He’s right at that age where everything is exciting. I always have a lot of fun when I play with him.”

Nory dryly replied, “Good for you.” His hand remained noticeably empty for a few more moments. Eventually, Kind turned over his Pokéballs.

Nory turned to walk down the street, thinking about a relaxing bath he could have once he got to the Center. After traveling only half a block, someone frantically yanked on his shoulder from behind. It was Kind. He was wearing a mask of pure terror. A terror so fundamental that it threatened to break the very essence of his being. The arachnaphobe licking a spider; The agoraphobe standing at a podium. This terror was the weapon held in Room 101.

“Please come meet my relatives. I never meant to make you angry. If I knew that it mattered to you I would have told you as soon about them as soon as we meet that Solrock. And I’m-”

Dude! Calm down. Sure, I’d love to meet your family.” Kind wiped the moisture from his eyes with his palm. When he lowered his hand, the expression of fear was replaced by serenity. The change was so drastic that Nory questioned if he saw the fear at all.

After a short Walk, Kind and Nory stood at the base of an apartment complex. Kind looked down the long list by the door until he found the right name. He cleared his voice before pressing the corresponding button.

“Who is this” a stern voice asked.

“It is Kind Flame and a friend.” A buzz signaled that the door had been unlocked. While Kind held it open, he told Nory, “You should put Buckets back in his Pokéball.”

“Why? It’s not like-”

“Trust me. It is better that way.”

"Hey, so who are your relatives that we are meeting anyway?" Nory asked during the long elevator ride.

"There is my Uncle Sargs, his wife Roje, and their son Ibon."

After a minute, the duo were standing before a metal door painted a solid white. Kind went to knock, but was interupted by a sound. Click. Ching. Rattle. The heavy door was pulled open to reveal a woman wearing a black dress and a bright smile. "Kind! It is so good to see you again. How have you been? And who's this friend of yours?"

Despite being trapped by a suffocating hug, Kind was able to reply. "Hello Aunt Roje. I have been doing well. This is Nory."

"It is a pleasure to meet you."

"Ooo, Ibon will be so happy to see you and your friend! I just wish you called first. He is at the store right now with Sargs."

"Sorry." Kind's cheeks gained a hint of rosiness. "I forgot."

This caught Nory's attention. He forgot! I though Kind never forgot important things. Weird.

"Come in, come in," Roje said as she pulled her guests in by their hands. "I already called Sargs to let him know that you have stopped by. Let me get you something to drink. You just both be so thirsty. What would you like? We have goat milk, filtered water, apple juice, mango smoothies-"

"Water is fine," Nory said as politely as he could.

"Do you have any root beer?" Kind asked.

"No, sorry. We do not let Ibon have any sugary drinks."

"Apple juice is fine then."

Kind and Nory sat at a cold, marble table while Roje got the drinks. Soon she emerged from the hallway carrying two tall glasses that were dripping with condensation. Kind downed 2 thirds of his at once; Nory was sipping his at a much more modest pace.

With great interest, Roje asked Nory, "What do you do?"

"I am a Pokemon Trainer," Nory proclaimed quite proudly.

Roje did not give him a chance to elaborate, for she had turned to Kind and inquired, "What have you been getting up to?"

"I am currently working as an intern for a research professor."

"Really, what type of research?"

"My current assignment is to gather specimens from various environments. The professor will then cross reference them to find statistically significant trends and patterns."

Nory spent the next 10 minutes feeling like a 3rd wheel. Roje kept asking questions on every detail even though she did not understand it all and Kind kept giving detailed answers. Fortunately, he was saved by a knock at the door.


Five

Roje went to the door and opened it wide, revealing an older man in a black turtleneck holding a brown paper bag of groceries and a cute 10-year old in a rather bland grey sweater. "Kind!" the child yelled enthusiastically before dashing foward. Kind dropped to a knee and held Ibon in a tight embrace. This lead to Ibon making a rather informative observation. "Eew! Your stinky." That got a good laugh out of Nory.

"You try spending 4 days on the road in this heat without working up a sweat."

"O, how rude of me," Roje exclaimed. "Would you two like to wash up?"


Six

"Are you certain that it is acceptable for us both to take a bath?" Kind asked. Being a desert country, showers were the norm in the Tychone Region.

"Of course! It's not like we can't afford it," boomed Sargs.

"Kind! Kind! Tell me a story. Pleazzzzze."

"Nory, you do not object to bathing first, do you?"

"Na, of course not," Nory said as he walked down the hall. He came back a second later blushing slightly. "Hey, umm... where is it?"

"Second door on your left," answered Sargs.

"Okay. Thanks."

If you were looking for the definition of relaxed, Nory's current mood is a sign your quest has not been in vain. Bathing after days of walking through the region feels like a rare luxury. Simply the feeling of having less dirt, sweat, lint and oils stuck to your body is a kind of feeling non-trainers will never be able to truly appreciate. It is a sensation bordering on divine. "This place is really nice," Nory thought to himself, laying on a nice, fluffy bed in an otherwise small and empty room, bathroom not withstanding. Nory is not the kind of guy to muse on the exact economics of being a Pokemon Trainer, he understands them quite well. On the other hand...

"A majority of Pokemon trainers earn their money through gambles: The winner of a Pokemon battle gains some portion of money after defeating their opponent. The more badges and/ or ribbons a trainer has, the more money the need to bet on the match. This way, even though newer trainer win less often, they tend to make money on average. Trainer IDs, which are partially digitized now, document a trainer’s progress to ensure that there is no one trying to game the system. Trainer not registered in the league will typically put an equal sum of money at stake before the match, although these types of trainers tend to be supported by an outside agent. For example, I work for Professor Elm in Johto, who gives me money every month to pay for my traveling expenses.

"It is also common place to scavenge for marketable plants, minerals and items naturally found in the wild or typically held by Pokemon for additional profit, although it has become a more discouraged activity now. This is due to a decreasing population of certain plants, and increased records of specific Pokemon species getting driven out of their natural habitat due to overeager trainers fighting them in mass to obtain rare items. Most notably, Farfetch'd in Kanto are being moved to the Safari Zone and having special laws governing them. Trainers are also privy to several goods and services, such as use of the Pokemon Center, discounts at some rest spots. In addition, basic items such as Pokeballs and Potions are often provided to starting Pokemon trainers in order to give them a grace period when they are still learning the ropes of being a trainer. Ibon was listening with wide eyes and untold concentration. Nory was genuinely impressed with Kind's explanation.

Spoiler:
I have a different view on how to make the Pokemon economy (a.k.a. Pokenomics) work. It is basically the same thing, but it is a little simpler and can be modeled in a single graph. If you want to know the definition of bliss, turn a complicated set of mathematical and logical statements into a single web of 5 nodes and 10 segments. After working it out, I just stared at the piece of paper that I was working on for ~20 minutes. I will post it if anyone is interested.

What happens next is that Ibon wants to head to a park and on the way Kind helps him register for his trainer's license. Before heading home, they will catch him a starter.

Oh, I and will explain what is going on with the counting later.
