Quick Updates

Weather Conditions

Season: Autumn

With the cooling season of Autumn, Ice-types are starting to re-emerge from their hibernation as Ghost-, Normal-, and Flying-types swarm in the largest numbers they will all year. In comparison, wild Fire- and Bug-type populations are falling in number. The migration of Flying-types to the south in search of warmer weather has also started, as Istin City starts to re-freeze and Autumn marks the beginning of Cypwater Point's rainy season. Handlers and Rogues alike should be wary: Ghost-type powers are boosted during this season, at the cost of being more prone to their triggers.

A few moments passed as Ken sought to gather her thoughts and come up with a good enough answer for Russell. She opened her mouth to respond before a scream sounded outside. Ken froze as she fled with Guardswoman Russell outside. Flame followed with a yelp, running after his handler while Purrloin only rolled her eyes and strolled after them at a much slower pace. Purrloin growled under her breath as she slipped through the door after Ken. She paused when she saw the Starly on the ground and licked her lips; the bird look tasty and an easy meal.

Ken froze when she saw the injured bird, gasping and dropping to peer at it carefully, her eyes softening in sympathy. Flame barked in excitement, jumping forward to sniff at the Starly but Ken pushed him gently back as Russell contained the Starly in a pokeball. Ken stood back up, thinking with a worried look on her face. For once she showed true emotion as words rushed out of her mouth, "We need a healer, is there one nearby?" she asked, voice edged with panic.

Flame picked up on his handler's anxiety as he yelped and yipped in excitement. He fidgeted and bounced up and down, wanting to have a closer look at the pokeball. He even attempted to prop his front paws on Russell's leg to get at the pokeball. Purrloin just snorted at him, idiot mutt. All she thought about was how good the Starly would taste. She purred at the thought, licking her lips again.

Ken scowled down at Purrloin, anticipating what she was thinking as she continuously licked her lips. She pushed Purrloin back. she wouldn't let the cat Pokemon harm the poor Starly. Flame smirked at Purrloin, taking joy in her scolding. Purrloin bared her fangs slightly at Flame, tilting her head slightly so Ken wouldn't see. "You'll stop that if you know what's good for you. You just don't know what its like to have fun. You've never been wild," Purrloin hissed.

Flame cocked his head to the side, not entirely understanding what Purrloin meant. He shook his head vigorously to get rid of the confusion that lingered. Kennith, oblivious to the argument her two Pokemon were having to look back at Russell, anxious to take Starly to the nearest healer, wanting to run all the way to a healer to save the poor injured Starly.

[[ +0.6 EXP for you!]]

Kennith’s quick shout for directions to a healer pleased Guardswoman Russell, who took a step back and allowed the greenhorn to take command of the situation.

Not that Kennith could take too much control, however - a young man stepped forward, wringing his hands nervously as he spoke. “My uncle’s a healer, but I don’t - he can be a little fussy when it comes to taking new clients,” he said sheepishly. “He works with two other healers, though, Wren and Cobalt - don’t know how he got his name, but Cobalt’s pretty good, if surly. Wren’s expensive, but she might help…”

Guardswoman Russell nodded at the young man. “What do you think, Kennith?” She seemed to be eyeing the young man with something more than professional agreement; there was a hint of doubt in her eyes. Did she doubt him, or perhaps something he said? Or was there something else about the situation that Kennith hadn’t picked up on yet?

“I can show you the way; it’s not too far from here. I hope this helps,” the young man said as he took off. Whatever reservations Guardswoman Russell had were quickly abandoned as she followed him, expecting Kennith to follow her as well. For several minutes, the three would run through various streets before heading down an alley towards what looked like a warehouse.

Inside the warehouse, which looked very large for the people inside, three people were at work. The first, a bearded man with an apron tied around his neck, fussed with herbs as he tended to what looked like an eelektrik with several deep gouges in its side. The pokemon made no noise, stoically enduring its treatment as the healer, equally silent, offered no reassurance to the nearby handler, a petite woman. Another woman stood nearby, and it seemed like she was fighting about something with a handler carrying a stunky emanating a most peculiar smell. She seemed hot-headed, tossing her hands up in the air frustratedly as the handler tried to dump the stunky in her hands. Finally, a third man looked up from his work on a poliwhirl to look up at the door, and the young man who had escorted Kennith and Guardswoman Russell spoke quietly.

“You stay by the door, I’ll see what I can do,” the young man said, approaching the third man with a nervous gait.

A booming voice would echo, “Joshua, what were you thinking?” before the conversation went soft enough for Kennith to only hear bits and pieces. She would hear “starly” from the young man and what sounded like an emphatically hissed “foreigner” in response, but other than that, it would be up to her lip-reading skills to get the job done.

Upon hearing the conversation, the female healer looked over at Kennith and Guardswoman Russell, her eyes lingering on the harp on the Guardian’s armor before she turned back to her argument. The bearded man, presumably Cobalt, did nothing at all, staying fixated on the eelektrik even as it began to faintly emit sparks.

“What do you think?” Guardswoman Russell said softly. “Is it worth a shot?”

The pair did have several bargaining chips at their disposal - Guardswoman Russell was a Guardian, and many healers did not want to cross Guardians; they had gold as well as the potential for future aid at their disposal; there was also the matter of Joshua, who seemed to be on their side for some reason, even though his uncle didn’t seem eager to get involved. Kennith could come up with other strategies, as well - or simply approach a healer and wing it.

Which, if any, of the healers would Kennith approach first? Or would she take her chances somewhere else?

Ken shuffled her feet when Russell stepped back to let her assume more command, feeling more nervous and uncomfortable but not letting her face show it. She didn't want Russell to think she wasn't up to taking control. Still she breathed a sigh of relief, glad to have found help so quickly. A healer could be achieved fairly quickly. Flame yelped with relief, mirroring Ken. He was excited to go and find help for the poor, injured Starly. Purrloin leaned back on her haunches, eyes narrowed in suspicion and curious to see to watch the situation unfold. Ken listened carefully to everything the young man said, storing the information in her mind. Flame listened attentively too, tense and alert as he stood next to Ken, pressing firmly into her leg to give his support.

Ken took off after Russell and the man, Flame following with a sharp bark and trotting by his handler's side. Purrloin rolled her eyes as she slowly started after the three humans and the stupid Growlithe. She picked up the pace to catch up, sliding down the street and sticking to the shadows. Purrloin slid into the warehouse after her handler. Flame growled at Purrloin, forcing his way between Ken and Purrloin, while showing Purrloin his fangs. Purrloin rolled her eyes before making a show of slipping past Flame's snapping jaws to run around the other side of Ken and rub against her leg while purring. "Purrloin not now," Ken scolded, pushing her away. Purrloin scowled at the smirk Flame made a show of showing the feline.

Ken carefully watched the people at work. Her eyes were quickly drawn to the woman arguing with the handler with the Stunky. She assumed the woman must be Wren but she couldn't tell which one the male healers were. Purrloin folded her ears against her head, her sensitive cat ears find the woman's arguing to loud for her liking. Flame only batted at his nose, hating the scent of blood and disease that emanated from this place.

Ken watched as the young man left to talk to the third healer in hushed voices. Ken had no idea what they were saying, ears strained to hear the conversation. Purrloin would've caught much of the conversation if she cared. Instead of even attempting to pay attention, she curled up to relax and maybe even take a nap. Ken watched curiously, wanting to know what was being said. She assumed the young man, Joshua, was talking to his uncle so that meant the other man, hunched over the Eelektrik must be Cobalt.

Ken turned back to Russell when she was spoken to. She nodded her head, willing to take a risk and trust one of the healers. She had the gold to pay for their aid and assumed they would respect and give aid to a Guardian. "I think we should try it," Ken answered, eyes flicking from one healer to the next and trying to decide who to ask for help first.

Ken felt less than eager to approach Joshua's uncle, feeling instant distrust coming off him. She looked over at Cobalt and studied him for a moment. He seemed too preoccupied to want to help them, seeming unapproachable. Ken then turned to the woman. Her eyes had lingered on Ken's harp on her armor, showing she had not only acknowledged their presence, she had acknowledged they were Guardians. Not to mention, Wren didn't seem too happy with her current customer. Ken approached the woman slowly and cautiously.

"Excuse me," she began sheepishly. She cleared her throat before repeating herself in a much louder, more assertive voice, "Excuse me." Flame pressed into Ken's leg again, trying to give his handler strength. Purrloin slightly opened one eye to see what Ken was doing before closing it again and continuing with her light slumber. If the healer had paused from her argument to notice Ken, Ken would continue speaking. "I need a healer to help with an injured Starly," Ken explained.

"Yes, I heard," the woman replied wryly, now holding the stunky in both hands, her dark eyes shifting between glaring at Kennith and very much glaring at the stunky's handler. The pokemon in question made a weak noise, his odd aroma wafting around them. "Can't you see I have my hands full? We'll take you on if Luca says so, and not a moment sooner. We've got actual handler Pokemon to see to, not some wild bird too dumb to keep from doing whatever it did."

With that the woman hefted the stunky onto a clear table, casting another deep glare at the skunk's handler (who seemed to be heading for the door now). Seeing as Luca was the only name Joshua hadn't mentioned, it was clear that this was the uncle who ran this place.

He was looking at them, too, clearly aggravated. His eyes skipped between Kennith and Guardswoman Russell, and finally he stomped over to the young guardian.

"You there, girl," he growled, crossing his arms over his chest. He was a wiry man, not as physically imposing as Cobalt but still built enough to be a presence. His own beard was nothing more than scraggle on his cheeks and chin, and up close Kennith could see silver hairs interspersed between the black. "We can't drop everything just for a wild Pokemon like a starly. You're better off putting it out of its misery," he began, but there was something hesitant in his voice. After a moment's pause- to allow Kennith her rebuttal, no doubt- he continued. "To be frank, there's not a lot we can do with those injuries, not with what we have here. If you want us to heal him, you need to bring us some supplies. Most of them can be found out in the wilderness surrounding the village. We'll need yarrow, daisy, mountain violets, and two waterskins of river water. Take as much of the plants as you can carry. Get that for us and I'll take on the starly, got it?"

It was a fairly generous offer. Guardswoman Russell stood several feet back, watching silently. Kennith would have to make this decision and lead this charge, since the bird was now in her care. It was hard to tell what the older guardian was thinking.

Ken swallowed her emotions at the woman's harsh tone, smoothing the features of her face though her fists were clenched in anger. Couldn't they see the Starly was hurt! And they were just gonna stand by and leave it to its own fate. Flame growled angrily, he didn't like anyone talking that way to his handler! Ken bent down to pat Flame's head, calming him down. "Flame, its alright," Ken assured the Growlithe. Flame cast one last glare at the woman before turning away with a snort. Purrloin opened one eye to look at the woman, watching her carefully before closing the eye again; it was none of her concern.

As Luca approached, Ken stood back up, dipping her head respectfully to Joshua's uncle. A flash of anger appeared briefly over Ken's face before her face went blank once more, bottling up her rage. "Every Pokemon's worth saving, whether their a common Starly or some other rare Pokemon," Ken said, her voice soft and cold, barely keeping her anger back. Flame picked up on her anger and began his growling once more, peeling his lips back in a snarl. "Flame stop it!" Ken snapped, losing her patience. Flame whimpered, crouching back with tail tucked between his legs. Ken sighed, stroking his scruff briefly to give him her forgiveness before turning back to Luca.

Ken nodded excitedly as Luca listed off what she needed. She jotted a mental note of the plants, taking great care to remember the ingredients. Ken instantly, turned around and crossed the distance easily to Russell. "We need to go and get the supplies to heal Starly. I believe they were daisy, yarrow, two waterskins of river water, and uh... What was that other thing? That's right! And mountain violets," Ken explained. She strode past Russell to leave on her way out to go and collect the materials as quickly as possible. As she reached the entrance to the warehouse she turned to wait and see if Russell would follow.

The guardswoman nodded, her face betraying none of her emotions. She'd watched the exchange between Kennith and the healers- and then Kennith and her growlithe- in silent judgement, noting how the new guardian interacted with the others. But she didn't interject. This was Ken's mission, and she'd eventually have to make her own decisions- and deal with the repercussions of her mistakes. There was no reason Russell shouldn't start the lessons now and let Ken take charge.

She heard the instructions, but nodded nonetheless when Ken approached her and rattled off the list of ingredients. "I'll stay in town. You've made it your personal goal to help this starly, and so you'll have to do this on your own." There was always the possibility that Russell just didn't want to help, even after Ken's passionate assertion that every life was worth saving. "If you really need help, like you get attacked by a pack of deino or something, I'll have one of my pokemon following you to keep an eye out. He'll come and get me, or aid you, as needed."

With that, Russell ducked out of the tent and headed off towards the market, leaving Ken to strike out on her own.

The village wasn't so big that traveling to the outskirts took any longer than ten minutes at maximum. Residents shot dirty looks at Ken as the young guard passed, making mental note of the obvious outsider and passing silent judgement. No one tried to stop her or get in her way, however. Outsider she may have been, but she was still a guardian. They knew better than to interfere with official business (for, as far as the villagers were concerned, 'official business' was what Ken was up to).

When Ken got to the outskirts to start her hunt, there were a few things she might notice. One was the distinct lack of a river anywhere to be seen. The other was the steep, boulder-strewn mountainsides that hemmed part of Doran in. Various plants poked up between stones, and the landscape itself was just green enough that finding flora wouldn't be a problem, but actually scaling the small foothills could prove to be deadly. Maybe this was why the healers hadn't retrieved these herbs themselves.

Ken watched as Russell left her alone, disappointed. She felt nervous and unsure of herself. How could she do this alone? She was ready to give up, convinced she couldn't do this by herself when she felt a familiar side press into her leg. She looked down to see Flame bark his encouragement, tail wagging. Purrloin only sighed, rolling her eyes, sitting back on her haunches. "Come on you two," Ken ordered, leading the way through the village. She noticed the dirty looks cast her way as she walked down the different streets, looking around at her surroundings and trying to observe and notice the small details of her new home.

It took about ten minutes before Ken reached the outskirts of the village, moving into the rocky hills that penned Doran Village in. Ken noticed the lack of a river and her heart fell, that was supposed to be the easiest part of her mission! Ken shook the negative thoughts from her head and thought long and hard on the plants she was supposed to be finding. "Over there!" Ken cried, pointing to a cluster of plants shooting up between some rocks. Flame barked in excitement, following close as Ken jumped up to the plants. She knew nothing of botany and so inspected the plants carefully, thinking they looked a little like daisy, plucking them from the ground gently and placing them in her bag, not sure if they were a plant she needed.

Flame began sniffing around, searching eagerly for the plants they needed. "This way," Ken ordered, beginning to trek her way up the steep foothills. Purrloin followed after her easily, jumping from boulder to boulder, navigating the uneven ground relatively easily with her catlike grace. Flame scrambled up after Ken, struggling to find firm footing in the uneven, rocky land. Ken's eyes caught onto a group of plants she thought could be the mountain violets, picking them carefully, unsure of herself and whether these were the right plants or not.

She looked over as Flame barked to catch her attention. Ken hurried to his side, stumbling all the way. She bent down to inspect the plants Flame pointed out and gathered those as well, thinking they were the other plant she needed, though she didn't fell confident about what she had gathered. "Now we just need the river water," Ken declared, thinking how to go about finding the river. Purrloin just sat back, looking bored and uninterested. Maybe Flame could smell the river. Ken bent down to scratch behind Flame's ear. "Flame do you think you could find a river for me?" Ken asked. Flame barked his agreement and determination, raising his nose to the air and breathing deeply...

The slope was indeed treacherous. Boulders shifted as Ken's footsteps loosened rock and soil,
and every bootfall threatened to send the guardian careening backwards down the slope. Plant after plant went into Kennith's bag, and there was no way to tell if they were even the right ones. It would be a pity if she returned only to find that she'd failed, or had to come back out to the hills and risk her neck to find what she needed. No doubt the townspeople knew what plants were which, and perhaps the right questions might have yielded Ken some valuable info. Nevertheless she hadn't asked, and now she had to rely on guesswork. Bending down to pick foliage without tumbling down the slope was hard work, too; by the time she was done she had worked up a solid sweat, and her legs ached from exertion.

That task done, Ken only had to find this fabled river the healers had spoken of. Flame lifted his nose to the air in an attempt to locate anything that smelled like water, but nothing came. There were no telltale signs of green, lush fields that indicated a nearby water source, either. The growlithe picked a direction and slid carefully down the slope to the ground, surmising that maybe, just maybe, he'd find water down here. With a bark he took off up the route, desperately scenting the air. Loki seemed content to groom herself on a boulder and barely moved to follow, although she'd huff a sigh and obey if the guardian insisted.

After twenty minutes of nothing, the faintest odor of wet stone tickled Flame's nose. He yipped and made a beeline for it, and soon even Ken could hear the trickle of water over rock. What they came upon was not a river, not even in the slightest. It was a tiny mountain stream that flowed down from some invisible source, winding around stones and collecting in a small pool at the edge of the route.

As they approached, something moved in the mud around the pond. It was brown and yellow and almost looked to be a large leaf, but the leaf was staring at them with rough eyes.

As Flame took off with an excited bark, Ken gave chase. "Loki come on," she snapped as she turned to follow her Growlithe. Loki gritted her teeth together as she rose to her paws and followed at a slow walk. As the pair disappeared from the feline's view, she simply sniffed the air and followed their scent trail, not to mention using her keen ears to follow the loud barking of the noisy Growlithe. Loki quickly caught up as her handler and Flame had slowed down, coming upon the stream. Ken's heart fell as she saw just the trickle of water.

As Ken approached the stream she noticed the eyes staring at her through the mud and crouched down at a safe distance to inspect what was watching her. "A Stunfisk," she muttered under her breath. Loki stopped on one boulder, a safe distance from the stream to keep her fur from getting muddy and began to groom again. As soon as Flame notice the Stunfisk, he began an excited bark, ready to run forward and begin what he thought was play to the Stunfisk but could very easily be mistaken as hostility. "Flame, come here," Ken snapped quickly. "You don't want to scare it." Flame whimpered but obeyed, tail tucked between his legs.

Ken turned back to the Stunfisk. Maybe it could help. "Hi," she greeted the wild Pokemon in a friendly, non-threatening voice. "I was looking for a river and can't seem to find one. If you could point us in the direction of the river I would greatly appreciate it," Ken asked, cocking her head to the side. It wasn't until recently Ken had come so close to wild Pokemon and so had no idea they could be dangerous. All she knew was she wanted to get along with them like she did the Pokemon at home that were well-behaved pets to the wealthy. It never crossed her mind that the Stunfisk could hurt her or attack her. She simply sat there with a kind look on her face and expected the Stunfisk to help. She never expected it to talk or tell her the way to a river, she waited for it to point in the direction of the river.

The stunfisk blinks slowly at them, as if she's trying to figure out the strange beings that had suddenly approached her pond. There was a long pause after Ken's line of questioning, and the flatfish proceeded to flop around in the shallow, muddy depression she called home. It was hard to understand what the Pokemon was trying to convey, and that was assuming she even understood what the guardian wanted at all. Any attempts by Loki or Flame to speak to the stunfisk were met with silence.

At some point Ken must have crossed an invisible line- perhaps with the close proximity, and the young woman's continued presence. The fish suddenly reared up, half of her body leaving the water to glimmer in the dry air. For a split second she hung there, contorted in some bizarre dance, before she slammed back into the water.

The result was a small wave of mud that arced up and hit both Ken (a direct hit to the face) and Flame. The Mud-Slap stung, and it wasn't over yet. With surprisingly ease she did a circle in her small watery home, then poked her head out of the water to shoot a Water Gun right at Flame.

Ken stumbled back when the wave of mud rose at her, slamming into her face. Her face burned and stung but luckily she had closed her eyes quickly and wiped the excess mud off her face. Flame fared just as well, whimpering and crouching pack in pain as he shook the mud off but based on his spitting and gagging, it looked like he had swallowed some. Ken quickly swung around to face the Stunfisk, just as it was using another attack. "Flame dodge it!" Ken ordered quickly just as the Water Gun was spat out. Flame looked up with a yelp, forgetting the mud sticking to his fur, just in time to get blasted in the face and thrown backwards. Flame whimpered pathetically, struggling to push himself to his paws, his fur soaked.

Ken ran to Flame's side. "Flame are you okay?" she asked, placing a reassuring hand on his shoulder. Flame glanced up with a small whimper. "Alright, you stay out of this one," Ken ordered, swinging back to look at Purrloin. "Purrloin I need you to fight, Flame's at too big a disadvantage."

Purrloin looked up with a shocked expression, one paw frozen in midair just as it was about to slice over her face. She growled under her breath, she didn't feel like fighting! She glanced over to the injured Growlithe and groaned loudly, stepping forward to defend her weakling trainer and her even weaker Growlithe. Purrloin rose to her hind paws, claws sliding out and her lips peeled back to reveal sharp, pointed fangs.

"Purrloin use Charm!" Ken ordered, not taking her eyes off the hostile Stunfisk. If it wanted a fight, she would give it one. Purrloin instantly relaxed her body in a non-threatening manner and made her eyes go big and round in a cute, cuddly way. "Now Dark Pulse!"

Purrloin's eyes suddenly got fierce and dark, way more threatening than when she was in her Charm attack. Her claws slid back at out again and she held one paw out, a beam of darkness firing at her opponent...

The victory against Flame, however short-lived, did wonders for the stunfisk's confidence (nevermind the fact that a Water attack against a Fire-type had a distinct advantage). The muddy fish puffed up as much as her streamlined body would allow, turning her eyes to Loki as if to say I messed him up and now I'll mess you up, too. It wasn't all that intimidating of a gesture, but points for trying, right?

Unfortunately, it also distracted her from what her new opponent was doing. Part of this was a result of the purrloin's Charm- the stunfisk, unaware of what Loki was doing, fell for the ploy. She certainly didn't think her feline opponent would be much of a challenge, not anymore, and she reared up to send another Mud-Slap their way when the Dark Pulse struck her broadside, directly on the underbelly. The force lifted the fish out of the mud and flipped her over several times, and she landed on dry rocks a few feet from the stream. Suddenly panicked, the pokemon Flailed, desperately trying to reach the water again. Out here under the hot desert sun was no place for her to be, even if she was adapted for the environment. She still needed moisture.

The stunfisk managed to get a little closer, but the rocks were either too large to properly get over (and she had zero finesse) or were so loose that they dislodged under the slightest of movements. It may her a very visible target, and very vulnerable, and should Ken decide to end the battle, it would be easy to pull in a decisive win. The stunfisk's absence from the stream also meant that Ken could take some water from it if she wanted. Seeing as there was no real river in sight, it was probably the next best thing. Would the healers even notice?
