Quick Updates

Weather Conditions

Season: Summer

The onset of the Summer season has led to a swarming of Fire-, Electric-, and Bug-types, overtaking most populations in the Region. In their place, Water- and Grass-types have retreated to the shade and to cooler areas, while Ice-types have all but vanished. The rising temperatures has also led to the annual thaw of the infamously cold Istin City, though it remains the coldest.

RP Sample


A plain man stepped out from his post at the wall. He fair blended with his surroundings by sheer skill rather than camouflage. Right outside Lord Folgart's office, the man in light armor with a staff strapped to his back bowed once politely. One hand reached out to gesture for Gareth to follow. Without a word the man strode forward and led Gareth toward the deeper interior of the large villa. Plush carpeting offered a generous comfort to the feet as they traversed the empty halls. Doors propped up at strange intervals and the strange man led Gareth down one corridor, turned right, and passed a large bay window as they walked. Outside lay Lord Folgart's garden. Flowers bloomed in thick profusion but within carefully constructed and maintained designs. The glance was brief but the numerous gardeners were hard to miss, as were the pokemon floating blissfully in the garden. A lone pidgeot clung to a smooth marble statue near the center.

Its eyes bore into the window as if searching for Gareth and leering right through him. But then the man and he were off down the hall, windows lost to the confines of the house. Eventually they ended at a doorway not unlike the other dozen doors they'd passed. The villa wasn't a maze so much as a complex structure. The man seemed to know the whole layout perfectly for he stopped beside the unmarked door and knocked sharply, a rap-rap-rap against the heavy wood. Someone called from within. Male, deep voice if Gareth were to listen. The door whisked open by the man's hand and he ushered Gareth forward with one pale hand. The man, whoever he was, did not follow Gareth inside. Instead he shut the door soundlessly in Gareth's wake. A man of around early forties sat at a desk with stacks of paperwork meticulously organized to the left and a curious oddish perched to the right. "Oddish!" It announced. Leaves rustled as it arranged itself to stare at Gareth.

The room itself was nicely decorated if a bit sparse. A single russet carpet lay on an otherwise stone floor, bringing a dash of color to the place. To one wall hung a map of the region stuck with numerous pins of varying color. Beside it was a long vellum scroll pinned to place with tight scrawled words, hard to read from afar. Other than the numerous sconces to keep the room lit, it lacked any exterior lighting. The Guardian perched at the desk glanced up at oddish's voice. His steel gray hair was cut short to his scalp and his large nose took up most of any onlooker's first glance. His plain brown eyes garnered little attention unless caught in their steady gaze. This he used now as he placed the last of his paperwork down on the desk. Both hands folded over the desk and laced fingers. "So you're the new recruit. Molloy, correct?" He didn't wait for agreement. "Tell me, boy. What skills do you have? No use being modest, I need proper information before assigning you. I have three particular assignments of high priority but with lower requirements of the Guardian in question." He tilted up his chin, somehow giving the impression of looking down at Gareth.

"Well, boy?" His bristly mustache twitched and he continued on without waiting for an answer. Impatient, this one. Or perhaps tired of being cooped up in an office instead of afield. "If you have skill with arms, I'll be sending you to Edgewood. Got no skills, you'll take messages for me and the rest to Istin. Then I have reports of some kind of nuisance at one of the recently cleared sites." The Guardian leaned forward and peered at Gareth. "Unless you've the gall to demand one over the other, I'll assign it by skill. Now speak up." This time it seemed the man would actually give Gareth a chance to speak. At least, if he did so quickly.

[OOC: Think I’ll keep the egg typing a surprise. More fun that way.]
[Egg Count: 1]

Gareth had not been given a chance to meet his partner Pokémon before being ushered away in the direction he assumed was his superior’s office. His guide had seemingly emerged from the woodwork in such a way that even Gareth with his sharp eyes had not noticed him earlier. Gareth made a mental note to memorize the path his guide was taking him. It would be embarrassing to get lost on the way out of the villa later.

Eventually, the guide led Gareth past a large bay window that exhibited Lord Folgart’s beautiful garden. Gareth’s eyes quickly scanned the garden taking the colors and design of the flowers before his eyes fell upon a lone pidgeot perched upon. It was not long before Gareth realized that the pidgeot seemed to be staring right at or almost through him. Suppressing a shiver, Gareth quickened his pace after his guide and thought to himself, ‘Better stay in that pidgeot’s good graces. Looks extraordinarily powerful.

Eventually, Gareth’s guide led him to a windowless part of the villa and was soon knocking upon a door. Gareth heard the voice beckoning him to enter and gave a nod of thanks to his guide as he entered the room. As Gareth briefly looked around the room he noticed the map and scroll attached to the wall. Squint as he might though, Gareth was not able to make out any of the words on it. Shifting his gaze from the wall to the occupant’s desk, Gareth made a mental note that this man was quite the organized individual due to the meticulous stack of papers on the left side of the desk. Gareth’s attention abruptly shifted from the Oddish that had just spoken to the man sitting at the desk. When the man mentioned his last name Gareth went to give an affirmative, but was cut off as the individual kept talking. Gareth could not tell whether the man was impatient or someone who yearned to be outside working instead of finishing paperwork.

When his superior officer finally gave Gareth a chance to speak about his skills, Gareth said, “Yes sir. I can use a bow and I have good eyes.” After a brief pause, Gareth mentally admonished himself, ‘Can’t speak that terse to my superiors. Makes for a bad impression.’ Clearing his throat, Gareth continued, “That is to say, sir that I have been practicing with a bow since childhood. I am observant of my surroundings and can pick up on small details that others might miss. I’ll go wherever you think my skills may be put to the best use, sir.

(0.6 EXP! I will request that you change the color you use for Gareth's speaking text. It is rather difficult on the eyes. Here is a list of colors that you can also use!)

"Hmm, so you have some skill with that bow, boy. Very well. I'm sending to you to Edgewood then." His mustache twitched as he gave the recruit only a split moment for any sort of response. Of course, it wasn't enough time for Gareth to say a word, even if he wanted to speak, but apparently to long for the senior Guardian to wait and see. "You will be accompanied by another senior Guardian on your mission in Edgewood. The guide that brought you here will escort you out to your superior for the mission."

The Guardian shifted around the only three papers on his desk that weren't in neat stacks. He grabbed one and folded it length-wise like one would a letter. His brown, sturdy gaze found Gareth's before extending it in his hand for the newest recruit. "Present this to your superior when you see them. Do not read its contents. That's an order, recruit. Knock on the door three times to leave. Dismissed."

Once Gareth knocked on the door, it would swing open to let him out. The plain man from earlier stood before him. He would bow politely again, but would not motion for Gareth to follow. Instead, he would beginning walking, assuming the recruit didn't need the unspoken instruction this time. They would walk the same path that they had already taken through the villa, simply reserved. The man and he would pass the same sights, garden and lone Pidgeot included, before they passed through a door that led to the outside world. If Gareth chose to say something to his guide, it was unlikely that he would receive a response. Maybe it would be worth the risk if the question or statement Gareth had was particularly important.

The bright summer sun shone radiantly overhead. Shades of blue filled the sky above them with no white clouds to be seen. Bird Pokemon, that had previously been contently nestled in the grass, chirped and flapped their wings as they darted away from the duo who had disrupted them. Standing a about ten yards away was a woman with deep auburn hair tied back into a bun. Her body was concealed by the same armor that Gareth had been given earlier but the sword at her hip and the staff strapped to back could be clearly seen. What couldn't been seen was a hidden dagger in each of her boots. The plain man stopped and gestured toward the woman. He turned and promptly left without a word.

The senior Guardian waved toward Gareth, walking in his direction. She stopped only a few feet from him and a small smirk played on her lips. "You must be my new greenhorn. Congrats. The name's Kara. What should I call you?" she said, the playful smirk on her face not leaving. Her eyes wandered down to the letter that rested in Gareth's hands. "That must be for me." Kara held out her hand some, waiting for Gareth to hand over the letter that was given to him. Once it was in her hands, the senior Guardian would read over the message and then put it in small bag hanging from her belt.

"I'm assumin' that this has been a whirlwind of a mornin' for ya. Probably get drug to see the taskmaster right after our Patron accepted ya, with no time to see that new partner. So, before we get started, I'll give ya some time to meet the 'mon. Once you're done with that, you can go get some supplies from the general store if ya need them. Might be smart to stock up. I'll wait there for ya and then we can get going." Kara pointed over to a tree before leaving Gareth with some time to meet his Pokemon and pick up some supplies if he wanted. If Gareth was feeling froggy, he could ask Kara for a sparing match but that might leave his Pokemon at a disadvantage should they need to battle on the upcoming mission he was assigned. What would Gareth decide to do with his time?

[OOC: Sorry about the color. I’ll use something that stands out a bit more.]
[Egg Count: 2]

Gareth listened as his superior gave him his mission and ordered him not to read the contents of the paper. 'Why do I get the feeling that I’ll almost never speak when I’m in this office?' Gareth thought to himself. Once the Guardian dismissed him, Gareth snapped off a salute before knocking on the door three times and his guide from before walked him back through the villa.

Gareth contemplated speaking to his guide for a brief moment, before deciding against it. 'Not like I’ll get much out of him now,' thought Gareth as he followed the guide, 'Best think about the mission. Going to Edgewood and apparently people with weapon skills are needed there. Got a feeling I’m gonna have to fight and not just with my Pokemon, but also my bow.'

Eventually Gareth’s guide brought him outside of the villa where he was escorted to a more seasoned Guardian. As they drew closer, Gareth took a moment to observe his superior as she waved him over. 'Seems friendlier than the last Guardian I met. Interesting. Uses a staff and a sword. Staff for non-lethal and sword for lethal? Some combination of the two?' observed Gareth. He cut his observations short, however, as he did not wish to be caught staring.

Having learned her name was Kara, Gareth replied, "Aye, thanks, I’m Gareth Molloy. And yes, this is for you. Your eyes only." With that said, Gareth handed her the folded piece of paper. Listening, Gareth realized it had been a bit of a rushed morning. Having just been sworn in this morning, he was already being sent on a possibly dangerous mission. When Kara finished talking, Gareth nodded appreciatively and replied, "Thanks. Think I’ll head to the general store and get some supplies. Never hurts to be too prepared."

As Kara went over to stand by the tree, Gareth took the pokeball he was given and released its inhabitant. In a flash, a small humanoid creature sitting in a lotus positon appeared. Its head was shaped like an onion and it had two ears angled upwards. Underneath its large eyes were pink ovals. The Pokemon’s body was blue except for the head, wrists, feet and lower body. The Pokemon slowly opened its eyes to stare at Gareth.

'A Meditite? Interesting,' contemplated Gareth as he took out his pokecard. Aiming it at the Meditite, Gareth read the display to himself, 'Male. Half Psychic, half Fighting types. Has the abilities Pure Power and Telekinesis. Knows Bide, Meditate, Psycho Cut, Bullet Punch, and a lot of other Psychic-type moves. No fighting type moves however. Have to remedy that soon.Seems strong. And disciplined. Small size might make opponents underestimate him. They shouldn’t forget the old saying: Mighty Gyarados spring from the smallest Magikarp.'

Kneeling down to the Meditite’s level, Gareth started to speak, "Meditite? I’m Gareth, you’re new trainer. It’s a pleasure to meet you. Don’t wanna have to have to call you Meditite all the time. Gonna call you… Zen. Now, I’m a Guardian. Newly appointed and all. Our job will be to protect this region and uphold the law. That sound good to you?" At that Gareth paused to let Zen contemplate what he said. Almost immediately after he finished talking, Gareth felt a presence enter his mind. An image of Gareth and Zen appeared in his thoughts standing together and Gareth felt a sense of pride and excitement wash over him. While Gareth had seen Psychic-type pokemon before, he had never actually had one communicate with him telepathically before. It was an interesting experience to say the least. Looking at the still silent Meditite, Gareth noticed it was no longer sitting in a lotus position, but standing upright and with a small smile on its face.

"Right. Gonna have to get used to you communicating to me like that. Gonna come in handy when we’re in a tight spot," Gareth muttered to himself before addressing Zen, "All right then. Glad you’re proud to be doing this. We’re gonna be traveling to the Edgewood with our superior Guardian over yonder. We’re to follow her orders. For now, I’m gonna return you to your pokeball and go over to the store. Get some supplies like food, canteen, and five more arrows. I’ll let you out once we’re in the Edgewood. Until then, rest up." After Zen gave an acknowledging nod, Gareth returned the Meditite to his pokeball. Going over to the general store, Gareth went up to the shop keep, and asked for one potion, one pokeball, one good rod, and one single dagger in the case of close combat.

Once he received his supplies and paid the shop keep, Gareth would join Kara and make for the Edgewood.

[Shopping list: 1 Potion (30g), 1 Pokeball (20g), 1 Good Rod (100g), 1 Single Dagger (150g) = 300g]

(0.7 EXP! The gold has been deducted and the item have been added to Gareth's profile.)

When Gareth came back to Kara, she began to walk in the general direction of Edgewood. She had a leisurely pace, considering their destination was barely an hour's walk away at this pace. For the senior Guardian there was no obvious hurry or rush. As they began to walk, Kara decided to fill Gareth in on details revolving around his mission. She didn't want to leave him in the dark and allow him to walk into the situation blind. "I should probably go ahead and give ya some details 'bout our upcomin' mission. We are bein' sent to Edgewood to investigate some poachers that the Guard has had their eyes on for a while now. We try to keep their activity to zero but that isn't always possible. Big forest and not enough of us to make sure they don't do it. So we are being tasked with goin' and checkin' a few of their known spots to make sure they are trapping any Pokemon in the forests. And if they have, release the 'mon and return it to the woods as long as they are in good enough shape." Kara stopped there, not wanting to go into detail about what happens if the Pokemon aren't fit enough to defend themselves after an encounter with poachers. If Gareth pushed enough, the senior Guardian might tell him more, but only if he shows he could handle the knowledge.

She cleared her throat, ready to change the direction of the conversation. "Now the problem comes in when ya realize that poachers aren't known for bein' a gentle group. Guardians of all levels that have to deal with poachers have came back injured if they weren't prepared. Poachers are a nasty bunch and ya got to be able to defend yourself when ya mess with them. I hope you're good with that bow," Kara said, her playful smirk returning to her face. "Simple enough. Any questions?"

As they walked, growing ever closer to the forest, Gareth could ask any questions that he wanted. Not just about the mission either. Kara would answer whatever inquires Gareth would speak, to a point. She would certainly let him know if he crossed a line so he shouldn't worry about that.

The scenery around them didn't change much as they reached the city's south-western edge. They crossed over into Edgewood and continued to walk on the Pokemon and human worn path. Around them Pokemon fluttered about the trees and scurried across the forest floor. Some watched them curiously while others only viewed the Guardian duo from the (relative) safety of inside a bush. However, they were a few that could be seen more clearly than the others.

http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/270lotad.png http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/e335251.gif Lv. 3

http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/37vulpix.png http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/e335252.gif Lv. 7

http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/BWPokemon/543.png http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/e335252.gif Lv. 5

The Lotad was hanging out in the shade of a shrub on Gareth's right but her head could be seen peeking out with total curiosity. The Venipede was sitting on a low branch of a tree on the left of Gareth, hissing lowly at the presence of humans. The Vulpix, however, was making no attempt to conceal himself. He was sitting in a small patch of yellow flowers. His eyes never left the Guardian pair.

"Seems like some Pokemon haven't disappeared into the woods at the sight of us. See any you like?" Kara's words were a silent invitation to stop and capture one or two if Gareth wanted. He could strengthen his team adding another member and Kara didn't seem to mind if the greenhorn took some time to add another Pokemon to his rooster. Would Gareth decide to take a shot at one of them, through whatever his preferred method is, or just let the Pokemon of the forest be?

[Egg Count: 3]

The greenhorn Guardian thanked the shop keep as he was given his items. Before holstering the dagger, Gareth gave it a once over and thought, ’Hopefully I don’t have to use this in a fight. If I do I’ll be in serious trouble.’ Once he rejoined Kara, the two made their way towards the Edgewood. As the Guardian duo walked towards the Edgewood, Gareth noted that Kara seemed to be in no rush. 'She's not just nicer than the captain, but also more laid back. Good person to be on my first mission with,' he thought.

Gareth listened attentively as Kara filled him in on the mission specifications. 'Poachers in the Edgewood? Figures. Some people have no respect.’ Not many things could phase Gareth, however, poachers were on that list. As a former logger, he appreciated the balance man had with nature. Poachers, on the other hand, did not. Noticing Kara trailed off after mentioning freeing healthy Pokemon from traps, Gareth had a thought about what happened to the ones that were too injured to be released. ‘Best not continue that thought. Focus on the task at hand. Cross that bridge when we get to it,’ thought the greenhorn Guardian as he banished the previous thought from his mind. He just hoped that they did not run into any Pokemon that were too injured from the traps.

Once Kara had finished her spiel about the mission and asked him if he had any questions, Smirking, Gareth said, "Aye, I can use my bow. I'm more concerned about having to use the dagger I bought." Stopping to think for a second, Gareth shook his head and said, “No questions yet. Let you know when I do. Follow your lead for now.” Gareth fell quiet and decided to watch their surroundings as the pair entered the Edgewood. He had always enjoyed his time near and in the Edgewood during his time as a logger.

Gareth observed the Pokemon that kept themselves visible. 'Venipede looks like it doesn’t like humans that much. Can’t blame it if the poachers are around. The Lotad seems young and curious. Would be nice to have a water type. Might not even have to battle it either. The Vulpix on the other hand seems quite comfortable. Though it hasn’t stopped staring at us. Zen and I would probably have to prove ourselves to it. Chances are that once I try for one, the others will run away,’ he thought. After a few seconds of deliberation, Gareth nodded and said, “Aye. The Vulpix. Got a soft spot for fire-types.”

Having decided on the Vulpix, Gareth quickly thought through the strategy he'd use with Zen. 'Of all his moves, the ones that do immediate damage are Bide, Psycho Cut, Bullet Punch, Psyshock, and Psychic. Bullet Punch is a steel-type move so it won't be as effective and Bide would take too long. Gotta rely on his psychic-type moves instead. Vulpix looks strong also. Wouldn't hurt to have Zen raise his power.'

Releasing Zen from his pokeball, Gareth looked at the Meditite and said, “Zen, time for our first battle. We’re gonna face that Vulpix over yonder and try to add it to our team. To start off, I want you to use Meditate and Calm Mind. If it looks like you’re about to get interrupted, use Psycho Cut immediately. Otherwise, wait until you’re done using Meditate and Calm Mind to attack. Once the Vulpix has been weakened enough, I'll throw a pokeball at it.” Nodding, Zen turned towards the Vulpix. Crossing his legs, Zen assumed his species customary meditative position and started to channel his psychic abilities.

------

Summary of orders:

Gareth
-Will throw a pokeball at the Vulpix once it has been sufficiently weakened.

Zen - Level 5
user posted image

-Uses Meditate to raise Attack
-Uses Calm Mind to boost Special Attack and Special Defense
-Will use Psycho Cut on the Vulpix if he gets interrupted while boosting his stats. Otherwise will wait until he’s done boosting his stats to attack.

(0.7 EXP. Feel free to describe the Pokemon preforming the move. You just cannot say whether it lands or not.)

Kara smirked. This greenhorn was a rather submissive one from what she could gather about him. Might be useful if they encounter a sticky situation at some point. It was nice not to have an arrogant newbie which thought they knew much more than the senior Guardian. But that was not a conversation for her. They could save that for a much, much later day and time. "Daggers can be a blessin' or curse. Use them wisely and they are a wonderful secret weapon. Fumble a thrust and lose the power ya need...well, then they can be the annoyance that ya never wanted." Kara was surprised that Gareth didn't have any questions for her. Most young Guardians at least had something to ask. This greenhorn was a big change of pace for Kara but she was enjoying him tremendously. She was not complaining one bit.

Kara hummed in approval with Gareth's choice. "Fire types are beginnin' to become common right now. Don't see many of them throughout the other parts of the year. Be careful with it now," the senior Guardian remarked before stepping out of the way to allow Gareth room. She would observe the battle quietly and without comment unless Gareth asked.

The Vulpix watched the dual-type Pokemon stoically before deciding that he also needed to give himself some power for this battle. He concentrated before the heat of the day became hotter. The sun shone brighter in the forest around them. Hidden little nooks and crannies that were barely visibly before became illuminated by the Sunny Day The Lotad backed into the shade it was using, still curious as to what would happen. The Venipede hissed louder before darting off into the woods to find somewhere less inhabited by pesky humans.

The fire type took a step toward the half-psychic type before trying to dodge as the Meditite launched the Psycho Cut attack at the canine-esque Pokemon. He tried to skitter away but the attack landed, hitting the Vulpix cleanly. The lupine creature turned toward Zen, a new fire burning in his eyes. "Vul vulpix" he growled lowly. Without warning, he shot a column of flickering flames toward the dual-type opponent he was facing. The shaft of fire propelled toward the Pokemon. The power of the sunny day was aiding in the power behind the attack. With their close proximity to each other, the flamethrower would hit Zen at least some. That was unavoidable but the Pokemon could still try and dodge the attack to prevent a full on hit.

Gareth should take note of the added heat and the now irritated mood of his potential new teammate. The Vulpix spun sideways, flipping and waving it tail at Zen. It propelled the fire type away from the dual type some and also looked rather pointless from a human perspective. That is, until Gareth would realize that the Vulpix had used the move tail whip on Zen, lowering his defenses. The move was not only cute but effective.

[Egg Count:4]

Zen cupped his hands close to his chest as he created the blade of psychic energy. His fingers were facing upward as the psychic energy quickly took the form of a blade. Locking his eyes on Vulpix, Zen launched the psyhcic-type attack. The Meditite allowed himself a momentary feeling of satisfaction as the Psycho Cut impacted against the Vulpix before returning to an on-guard position. Zen noted that the area had become much warmer than it was just a few moments ago and reasoned that the temperature change occurred while he was powering up. Or it could be from the Flamethrower the Vulpix had just spewed at him. All of a sudden, Zen felt a fluffy thing swipe him. It reminded him of those soft things the humans put under their heads when they sleep. It took Zen a moment to realize that the fluffy thing that hit him was the Vulpix’s tail. He felt no pain from the Vulpix’s maneuver, yet somehow he felt weaker. Assuming his on guard stance once more, the Meditite awaited his master’s orders as the fire-type attack loomed closer.

Meanwhile, Gareth noted that the Venipede had skittered away as predicted but the Lotad stuck around even though the sun had just become more intense. ‘Interesting. Lotad stuck around. Glad my armor is my sleeveless. Just got a lot hotter all of a sudden,’ mused Gareth, ‘Must’ve been something that Vulpix did. Sunny Day maybe? An ability? Regardless, fire-type attacks are gonna hit that much harder now.’

As the Vulpix was hit by Zen’s attack, much like his Pokemon, Gareth allowed himself a moment of satisfaction before focusing on the task at hand. ‘Vulpix almost looks insulted that Zen’s attack dared to connect. Might've bit off more than we can chew with this guys personality,’ thought Gareth. All of a sudden the Vulpix spewed fire at Zen and hit him with his fluffy tail. Cursing his luck, Gareth instinctively shouted for Zen to dodge, even though they both knew that the attack would hit the Meditite at least a bit. As Zen attempted to dodge the Flamethrower Gareth quickly weighed his options. ‘The swipe with the tail seemed to have knocked Zen off balance a bit. He looks weaker somehow. Must’ve been Tail Whip. Best to keep Zen at a distance.’

Regardless of the outcome with the Flamethrower, Gareth called out to Zen, “Use Psychic to knock the Vulpix off balance and follow up with Psycho Cut. Keep the Vulpix at a distance.”

As long as the Flamethrower does not cause Zen to faint, Zen will close his eyes and point his hand at the Vulpix in an attempt to grab him with Psychic and knock him off balance. Then while the Vulpix is recovering, Zen will cup his hands close to his chest much like earlier and send the Psycho Cut flying towards his opponent.

Should the two psychic type moves do enough damage to the Vulpix, Gareth will throw a PokeBall.

Summary of Orders

Gareth
- Will throw a PokeBall at the Vulpix once it reaches 40% health.

Zen

- Attempt to dodge the Flamethrower to mitigate the damage.
- Will use Psychic on the Vulpix to throw it off balance

(0.6 EXP! Be careful of your tags. I went ahead and fixed the broken one in the summary for you. Just be mindful next time as a friendly tip.

As per your last post, the capture will be attempted this post.)

Kara was impressed so far with Gareth's battling style. Raising the natural skills of a Pokemon and then using the increases to his advantage. This greenhorn was starting to show some talent for handling a Pokemon in battle. That put the senior more at ease with the idea of tackling poachers with Gareth as her partner, but not totally. The notion still didn't settle that the Captain would send a greenhorn out into Edgewood against these notoriously violently group of people. She pushed that thought out of her mind while she continued to observe Gareth's battle.

The Vulpix's muscles tensed and withered underneath the Psychic attack. The young male Pokemon had never experienced anything like that before in the wild and had no idea of how to resist the attack. He whined as the pain increased and slumped to the ground when the attack finished. The fire in his eyes never ceased to blaze. Battling was a rush for the Vulpix and he didn't want this one to end so quickly. The fire type stood up shakily and raised himself on his hind legs. He slammed down on the ground, causing a cloud of dust to rise and block him from the psychic type's view. Before the dust was able to settle, the Vulpix rushed from the cloud completely cloaked in flames. He barreled toward the dual, slamming into the opponent without giving a chance for the Pokemon to dodge. The lupine creature placed his paws firmly on the ground. His agility and quickness increased in the aftermath of the his flame charge attack.

Zen stumbled backward but still completed the order he was given by his trainer. The psycho cut was about to make contact when the Vulpix opened his mouth and let a shower of small fire bolts stream from his mouth. Zen fought through the ember attack to land his own attack, hitting the shoulder of the Vulpix and knocking him to the ground. The fire type shuttered and tried to bring himself up off the ground. He struggled to hold his body's weight on his wobbly paws. The Vulpix was clearly weakened and wouldn't be battling much more.

Kara smirked as she watched Gareth throw a Pokeball toward the weakened Pokemon. It was a smart move for him to make that choice in that moment. The Vulpix was weakened to a sufficient level. The Pokeball flew through the air and tapped the fire type on the head. The red light of the ball surround the lupine Pokemon and was sucked into the device. It fell to the ground and wiggled...

Once...

Twice...

Thrice...

Kara waited with bated breath until she and Gareth heard the distinctive clicking sound that signals the Pokemon was successfully captured. The greenhorn now had a new teammate for his roster. A Vulpix. Kara walked over to Gareth and clapped a hand on his shoulder. "Congrats on catching that 'mon. Don't forget to name him, if ya want." Kara dug around in the bag that hung at her waist. From it, she pulled a potion and handed it over to the greenhorn. "Here ya go. Use this on whichever one you want. Once ya done that, we can keep on trekking into the forest." When Gareth was ready to move on, all he would have to do it give the word to Kara and they would continue on with their mission.

[OOC: Thanks and sorry about that! Must’ve forgotten to check the summary for any errors]
[Egg Count: 5 +3 = 8]


Had Zen not been entirely focused on using Psychic, the Meditite may have been pleased with the result of his attack. He had made the mistake of letting his satisfaction distract him before. No more though. Zen would save any emotions for after the battle. He watched as the Vulpix struggled to stand after the Psychic attack. It was then Zen noticed the look in the Vulpix’s eyes. He had a burning passion for battling that just could not be extinguished. Zen allowed himself a small smirk at the sight of the Vulpix’s eyes. He knew that this Pokemon would make an excellent teammate at some point.

All of a sudden, the Vulpix was obscured from Zen’s view as he had slammed the ground to create a cloud of dust. His eyes scanning the cloud, Zen silently praised the Vulpix’s ingenuity. It was smart to obscure himself. The Vulpix could now charge up a powerful attack in relative safety. All of a sudden, Zen saw an orange glow showing in the dust, which quickly revealed itself as the Vulpix cloaked in flames. The flaming Vulpix slammed into Zen, knocking him back. Regaining his balance, Zen brought his hands close to his chest and charged up a Psycho Cut. As he was doing this, the Vulpix had seemingly gotten faster and was soon upon him with an Ember attack. Fortunately, Zen had the discipline and determination to fight through the pain the fire-type attack was inflicting upon him and send the Psycho Cut through the flames. The attack hit the Vulpix squarely on the shoulder. Despite the pain, Zen looked at the state of the Vulpix, then towards Gareth to which he gave a nod.

Impressed with Zen’s power and determination, Gareth responded to Zen with a nod of his own. Taking out an empty Pokeball, Gareth threw it towards the weakened fire-type. Hitting the Pokemon square on the head, the Vulpix disappeared in a flash of light as the Pokeball fell to the ground. Gareth and Zen were both staring at the ball as it rolled around, neither making a sound. Once the Pokeball settled down, both trainer and Pokemon allowed themselves a satisfied smirk. Not even a full day into being a Guardian and the pair already managed to add a member to their team.

Thanking Kara for the compliment and the potion, Gareth picked up the Vulpix’s pokeball and set to work. As he set about using the potion Kara gave him on Zen, Gareth said, “Excellent job Zen.” No more words were said between the pair. Instead, Gareth recognized the touch of the Meditite on his mind. Feelings of gratitude and accomplishment were what he felt from the dual psychic and fighting type. Looking down at the Meditite, Gareth noticed a small smile on the Pokemon’s face. “Thank you for the good battle. Now take a good rest. I’ll call you back out later,” said the greenhorn Guardian. Zen nodded before closing his eyes and returning to his meditations. Soon, the Meditite was resting inside his Pokeball.

Taking out the Vulpix’s Pokeball, Gareth debated on whether he should let it out now. With the mission involving poachers, he may need all the firepower he can get. On the other hand, the Vulpix may be sore about losing. Deciding that being prepared for later outweighed the immediate risks, Gareth let the Vulpix out of his Pokeball.

The fire-type appeared in a flash and the Pokemon gave a light glare towards Gareth but quickly laid down and started to clean himself. Gareth deduced that the Vulpix posed no immediate threat. Taking out his Pokecard, Gareth analyzed the abilities and moves of the Vulpix had. ‘Drought eh? No wonder why it feels so warm to be near him. Will-o-wisp and Heat Wave will be useful to,’ thought Gareth. “Creating that dust cloud to conceal your next attack was smart. And you’re strong. I respect that. I also noticed your attitude during the battle. You like fighting. Gives you a rush. That's good. We'll be getting into a lot of those. Zen and I look forward to battling alongside you.” said Gareth.

Regal pretended to ignore his new trainer as he cleaned himself. The human and his partner were stronger than he and would undoubtedly find him new battles. He was actually somewhat excited about his future, however, Regal could not let his new trainer know that. Being a Vulpix, he has a reputation to maintain. All of a sudden, Regal felt the human’s fingers scratching behind his ears, and did it feel good. Then he felt something being sprayed on him. This magical mist seemed to be healing his wounds a bit. If this was how he was going to be treated, Regal could live with that. Turning towards his new human, the Vulpix gave a slight nod before yawning, signaling that he was tired.

Giving a small smile to his new fire-type, Gareth returned Regal to his Pokeball for a rest. Gareth decided to observe his surroundings to see if the battle had attracted any unwanted attention. Should nothing appear amiss, Gareth will focus on the mission and follow Kara’s lead.

Summary:
- Vulpix was named Regal
- Used two Potions. One on Zen and the other on Regal.
- Gareth is scanning their surroundings for any unwanted attention.

(0.7 exp! No worries. That is partly what I am here for. PM me if you have any questions regarding this post or your reply.

- (2) Potions. Gareth's profile has been updated to reflect the new name and items changes.)

Kara looked around herself to make sure that no poachers had gotten wind of their presence from Gareth's battle. She hadn't thought about alerting the Pokemon hunters to their position from the sounds of a fight but that was hindsight now. Nothing stood out to the senior Guardian so she motion for Gareth to follow her further into Edgewood. This was officially the beginning of their mission so Kara wouldn't speak more than was necessary. It was a strange change in demeanor for the Guardian but a needed on to keep herself focused.

The duo walked for about an hour in relative silence. They stayed on the main pathway that had been created from humans and Pokemon alike. That was until Kara veered off the main path onto a small side path. It was not well worn and eventually tapered off into the grassy terrain of the woods. There was nothing to indicate to where Kara was going, as her path seemed to be mostly memory based. They walked for a good deal of time before Kara stopped. All was quiet except for the sounds of the Pokemon that inhabited the forest around them.

"We have come upon the first area that poachers are known to frequent. We have to check to see if they have a trap set and if there is a Pokemon in the trap. For this one, I want you to watch me so you can do this next time. Guard me and watch. That's an order," Kara whispered. She reached to her boot and pulled one of the hidden daggers from it. The senior guardian slipped past the treeline into a very small area that was free of large trees. The ground was so overtaken by with undergrowth that Kara could not see where she stepping. Weeds and grass came up Kara's knee. Gently she tapped the area before she stepped to ensure she did not set off a snare.

Kara knelt down to the ground and reached carefully to the center of the area. She pushed the tall flora aside to reveal a small metal trap designed to ensure the Pokemon's foot. The senior Guardian sighed in relief and stashed the dagger back into her boot. The woman looked around for something, finally settling her gaze on a modest branch that had fallen from a tree. The guardian used the limb to poke the center of the contraption. The two jagged metal sides of the traps shot to the center, ensnaring the piece of tree in its sharp teeth. Kara tugged the branch but it didn't move. Satisfied, she let the grass fall back into place and moved back to Gareth. She smiled at him and motioned for him to follow her.

Once they were a few yards away from the area, Kara spoke. "That was a good scenario. No 'mon in the trap. No extra snares set. No poachers watchin' and waitin' for us to be there. That's what ya want to see. Understand what happened back there?" Her voice was quiet and calm. But that was a mask for the emotions inside of her.

"I hope so because the next few will be mostly on you. Feel free to question what I did if ya don't get it." As they walked, Kara would answer any questions Gareth would come up with, if he had any. If the greenhorn didn't voice any questions, or concerns, the senior guardian would lead them down another hidden pathway before stopping near another treeline surround a modest sized clearing. "Alright Gareth. Before I let ya go in there, tell me what you are goin' to do?"

Gareth noted the change in Kara’s voice and demeanor after he finished with Regal. ‘Voice and demeanor changed. Must be mission time then. Gotta stay sharp,’ thought Gareth as he followed after the senior Guardian. Gareth valued the silence as the two walked. It allowed him to become accustomed to the natural sounds of this section of the Edgewood and should hopefully allow him to observe their surroundings. As the Guardian pair walked, Gareth kept his short bow in his left hand. He was in enemy territory now and was not going to be caught off guard if he had anything to say about it.

Eventually Kara stopped and gave Gareth the order to watch and guard her as she went to dismantle a trap. Nodding, Gareth nocked an arrow, but did not pull back on the draw string. Gareth watched as Kara, knife in hand, tapped the ground in front of her as she waded her way through the tall grass. ‘Smart. Gonna keep herself from losing a leg by doing that,’ the young Guardian thought to himself as he watched his superior and listened for anything out of the ordinary in his surroundings.

Fortunately, nothing appeared out of the ordinary by the time Kara reached a trap. Gareth watched as the woman let out a visible sigh of relief and stash her knife back in her boot. ‘Must mean no 'mon were in the trap. Good,’ Gareth thought as he continued to watch Kara work. Noting Kara used a fallen tree branch to spring the trap, Gareth stayed on guard as the senior Guardian moved back to his position. Only when Kara made it back through the grass, did Gareth marginally relax.

When Kara asked if Gareth understood what happened while she was in the grass, Gareth gave a nod as he put the arrow he had loaded into his bow back into his quiver. Just to be clear though, Gareth finally spoke, keeping his voice low and his commoner’s accent seeping into speech, “Just to be clear: Ya kept your knife out in case of ambush from the grass or in case of the worst and a 'mon was in a trap. Ya tapped the ground before ya to be sure you weren’t steppin’ into a trap. Used the branch to set off the trap. That sound right? One question though, we see any poachers, we shoot first ask questions later or we give them a chance to surrender?”

Regardless of Kara’s response, Gareth would follow her to a new clearing. In response to Kara’s question, Gareth, who had still been holding his short bow, would put the bow away and unsheath his dagger before saying in a low voice, “People are generally worse at travelin’ through brush than any 'mon, so gonna look around for anything that looks off. Broken twigs on the ground, tall grass that looks bent, boot prints in the dirt, stuff like that. I see anything like that, I’m followin’ it. Gonna also look for well-trodden pathways some 'mon might’ve used. Poachers might set up a trap there to make sure they get at least somethin’. Also gonna listen to see if I hear any 'mon that might be in distress in the clearing. Whimperin' or whinin'. Gonna be careful where I step to. Don’t wanna lose a foot. If I find a trap, I’ll do what you did and use a branch to set it off. Anythin’ I miss?”

Should Kara agree with Gareth’s methods, he will look around for any signs of human activity before going to set off any traps. Should Kara have any suggestions or disagree with his course of action, Gareth will follow her orders instead.

(0.7 EXP)

"You were my first line of defense should the poachers came at me from the trees. The dagger was my second and yea, in case a 'mon happened to fall into the trap. Other than that, that all sounds right to me. A good greenhorn, that's what ya are." She stopped for a moment to consider Gareth's question. It was one that she hadn't expected him to ask. But it was valid, nonetheless. "For now, let's just hope we see them before they see us. Long as that happens, ya bet your right hand, shoot first." Kara's words seemed to intensify when she spoke. She cleared her throat and ran a hand over her hair. She looked away from Gareth for a moment before turning back to face the greenhorn.

"Well, since ya seem to be ready, you are--" Kara was cut short of her sentence that would have released Gareth to preform the duty by a rustling in the foliage around him. The senior made a motion to hush the greenhorn and reached for her sword. She drew it tentatively as the sound seemed to grow louder and closer to their spot. The chaos went silent before a figure dashed from the trees straight for Gareth. Kara dropped her weapon with a clang and threw herself at the new guardian. She lowered her shoulder to knock the greenhorn out of the way. The newbie flew toward the ground as the figure crashed into Kara.

"Ouch," the figure said as both the figure and the senior guardian fell to the ground. Kara bolted from the earth to her sword and pointed it at the mysterious figure. She held a hand up to hold off an attack from Gareth.

"Identify yourself," she ordered. The man on the ground looked around with wide eyes. His hair was disheveled and the armor on his body was dented and almost in unusable condition. Dirt and other indeterminable substances covered his skin in patches. His eyes never stopped moving. But at the sound of Kara's voice, his rapid movements stopped.

"Kara?...Kara!" The senior guardian tightened her grip at the mention of her name. Her face stayed stoic. The man on the ground frowned at the her. "...don't you recognize me?" The was a tense moment that Kara stared intently at the man on the ground. Something changed in her eyes, a flash of recognition.

"But..everyone said ya were dead! You can't be here, Dylan." She gripped the back of his tunic and hauled him to his feet. Dylan didn't fight Kara's actions, which could be seen as strange. She shook her head at him. This whole time, Kara didn't look at Gareth until just now. "We have two choices. You and I can figure out what's goin' on here, " she shook the man in her grip, "or we can finish our mission first and then figure out what he is doing alive. Ask whatever ya want before givin' an answer. But I need one..soon."

[Egg Count: 10]

A rustling in the foliage quickly changed the mood of the two Guardians. Gareth quickly sheathed his dagger and had just grabbed his bow as a figure burst out of the brush towards him. Everything happened in slow motion after that. Gareth had moved to get an arrow from his quiver when Kara had knocked him out of the way of his would-be assailant. As he fell to the ground, Gareth let out an, “Oof” as he hit the dirt. Years of practicing with a bow had Gareth conditioned to spring up with an arrow nocked and ready to fire at their mystery assailant. The only thing that was stopped him was Kara holding her hand out to him, a signal Gareth knew meant hold off for now. Apparently Kara was faster than Gareth as she had already picked up her sword and had it pointed at the man.

As Kara spoke with the man, Gareth took the opportunity to look him over. ‘Dirty, dented armor. Probably would do more harm than good on him in this state. Disheveled looking. Crazy, wide eyes. Must’ve been out here a long while. Probably don’t want to know what all those spots of filth are on his skin,’ observed the young Guardian who still had an arrow trained on the wild man. The wild man had seemed to regain his senses, almost as if Kara’s voice had flipped a switch in the man’s head. As the man, Dylan, identified himself as he and Kara spoke, Gareth started thinking, ‘Wild Man seems to know Kara who was told he was dead. Former Guardian or ally of hers perhaps? She did haul him to his feet. Last I checked, ya don’t do that with enemies. Figures my first mission wouldn’t be normal.’

Since Kara and Dylan seemed to know each other, Gareth had lowered his bow, but did not return the arrow to his quiver. Soon enough Kara asked for Gareth’s thoughts on the situation. Pausing for a second before replying, Gareth spoke, “Two questions. One: Who is he? Former Guardian? Two: Are ya runnin’ from something or do ya jump out of bushes and charge people often? Cause if ya are, we need to get prepared mighty quickly. If ya aren’t then mission should come first. There may be Pokemon in need of help. We also need to stay sharp. The ruckus Wild Man here caused could’ve alerted any poachers in the area to our position.” As the young man spoke, Gareth kept scanning the surroundings for signs of anyone or anything else that might jump out at them and ready to shoot that arrow he still had nocked at a threat.

Should there be no signs of imminent danger, Gareth would prefer to go on and continue the mission. Otherwise, he will follow Kara’s lead as she probably has much more combat experience than he does. Gareth will not trust Dylan for the time being, regardless of his answers.

(0.7 EXP. Sorry for the relatively short and uneventful nature of this post. Its needed to keep things moving however.)

Kara shook her head for a single moment. It was a completely valid question but the senior Guardian wasn't looking for to answering it. She knew the proper way to answer his question, but the greenhorn didn't need to know all that. "While he is a former of many things," Kara shot the man, still with his tunic from under the armor in her hands, a look that clearly read Do not comment, "for our purpose he is simpl' a former Guardian. 'Bout a year former."

"Former? I did not resign nor did I quit." He pointed to the crest on his armor. It was what the Dedrius Guard had given him. Dylan crossed his arms and raised an eyebrow at Kara. She growled lowly.

"You have been gone for over a year! We thought ya were dead. Course you are a former Guardian. They don't keep dead people on the active roster," she hissed. The Dylan character was certainly getting under Kara's skin. What kind of history could these two have that caused that sort of reaction from the normal easy going senior Guardian? "As for the other question... he can talk ya that."

"Running...escaping. Both are kind of the same thing right?" Kara instantly let go of his tunic and pushed him away from her.

"Escapin'...from who?" She was afraid to ask. He cleared his throat before speaking.

"Uh...those poachers whose traps you are currently checking. Don't worry about finding anything in them, by the way. They recently checked them, dragging me along as a shield, but something spooked them from resetting all but a few traps." Silence. That's all there was between them. Silence. Kara couldn't form a complete thought as she looked at him. She sighed heavily before looking at Gareth.

"Well greenhorn-"

"So he's the new green-"

"Shut ya trap." She snapped her head back to him. He held his hands up in a submissive manner to the senior Guardian. Kara took a deep breath to calm her nerves and steady her voice. "Gareth... The mission can wait. As long as Dylan is tellin' the truth, that is... What should we do with him? Take him back to the Guard to show he isn't dead? Use him as a source on these poachers ourselves? Tell me ya thoughts greenhorn."
