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.

Hi, @Mindir! You should know the deal, just have fun, post in the updates, keep an egg count, and prod us if you have any questions! Enjoy!



roleplay sample


As Gry released the Pokemon, the Litten stretched herself out, in a rather stereotypical cat-related stretch. Red whiskers twitched in the cool night of breeze, and the cat-like Pokemon gave a curious glance towards the woman who released her, but padded herself towards the fire. It seemed that the fire type was more interested in the fire, and not Gry herself.

The Pokemon seemed rather oblivious to Gry's plight: being abandoned on the edge of Route Ten. It wasn't that bad, surely, but it was enough that Gry could already hear the stirrings of Pokemon around her. Howls of Poochyena and Houndour echoed through the underbrush and got caught in the leaves of the trees. The sounds carried on the wind.

Not only that, but it felt like a storm was rolling in. The sky, once dotted faintly with the start of stars, was turning hazy as dark clouds rolled in. The weather was dropping. Being out in the open was most definitely not a good plan.

There were several options Gry could choose from. Since it was route ten, she could attempt to find shelter in a cave or small alcove of rocks that might keep her -- and her Pokemon -- safe from the storm in the immediate area. She could, of course, attempt to follow the fading tracks of the cart in hopes to catch up. Perhaps her troupe had slowed down and decided to let her catch up. She, after all, didn't know how long of a head start they had gotten. Or, of course, there was the option to explore herself.

If she had traveled in the opposite direction of which the troupe went, just about a ten minute walk (perhaps twenty in the darkness, should she decide to not take a fire with her), she might stumble upon some rather stable looking ruins that would at least give some sort of protection from the elements. Of course, she could also stay there, rooted in the ground by her fire. Who knew what survival stuff were in her bag.

Even so, the Litten looked up towards the sky, gave a lazy stretch and settled closer to the fire. She didn't seemed perturbed by the sounds of the various Pokemon around them, or the dampening air of the eventual rain. Gry would have the chance, of course, to encounter any of these Pokemon towards whichever direction she chose:

(Eggcount: starter egg 1, oricorio egg 1)

"Embla! Nice to see you," Gry said pleasantly surprised, as the litten wasn’t the worst partner she could have been given. Embla new how to handle things on her own and would be a great asset, so Gry’s chances for surviving out here on her own, had greatly increased.
Embla seemed quite unfaced by it all and it led Gry to ponder if the litten was aware of the plan, or if she just rolled by it. Gry wasn’t sure what she preferred.
Embla honestly didn’t care what was going on or where she was, as long she was treated well and were fed. It had been weird to be recalled into a pokeball in the middle of the day to be given to someone who was already a member of the group though. As she relaxed beside the fire, watching Gry out of the corner of the eye all alone, it made a lot more sense.
She had never felt as a part of the group though she had enjoyed being there. It had been fun learning tricks and she had enjoyed performing and showing off her skills, but she had never figured out how to work together with the others. They were always in the way and she could never keep track of them.
Embla wondered if Gry was going to continue with the performing or not, she hoped she would.

When she thought about it Gry wasn’t that much surprised that it was the litten she had been given. Embla was skilled in performing but wasn’t good at team work, and Kerstin had complained about having spent so much time in training the kitten for no avail.
Gry had a feeling it was Kerstin who had made that decision and she could easily imagine how her old friend glanced out of the wagon before innocently going down to the stack of firewood and hid the pokeball within, before leaving with the others.
Gry smiled bitterly. She wasn’t sure if it was a good thing that Kerstin was trying to higher her chances or that she was a part of it, though Gry couldn’t believe anything else than that Kerstin and Jenny should have been against this. But why they hadn’t stopped it or could get it over their hearts to leave her behind, was beyond her.

Sounds coming from the surrounding area caught Gry’s attention and she paused to look around. She could hear someone howling although she did not know what was behind it, or how many. There were more than one though and Gry’s imagination showed her a picture of a huge band of ferociously looking pokemon, but that was too scary so she quickly changed it to two standing on the edge of a cliff, with a moon in the background. There were a lot of stories of pokemon howling to the moon.
As she looked around she spotted the egg she had dropped and went over to pick it up. She brushed some of the dirt off it and looked at the darkening sky. She frowned a bit as she noticed it was not only the sinking sun, but also rain clouds that darkened the sky, and she was a bit unsure of what she should do.
Usually the troupe would find a place to settle for the night, like they had done when they arrived at this clearing, and they would all huddle together in the wagon when it rained outside.
Gry smiled sadly and cuddled the egg in her arms. It had always been cozy sitting all together and listening to stories.
She cradled the egg closer as she imagined them doing so without her, all happy and relieved that they got rid of her and were free to do whatever they wanted. Kerstin and Jenny’s smiles were a bit forceful and didn’t quite reach their eyes, but they did what they could to not destroy the others mood, especially Jost’s.
A few tears ran down Gry’s cheeks at the thought. She wouldn’t be able to look them in the eyes again, so she wouldn’t run after them to find shelter in the wagon. She wasn’t sure what they would do if she caught up to them, and even though they deserved to be told what she thought of their behavior, it was too painful to face them right now.

A furiously hiss pulled her back to reality and she turned to see Embla arching her back while glaring at Kaipo, who had noticed the rain clouds and had decided to join the fun and begin a rain dance.
"Kaipo, no! Stop it right now!" Gry exclaimed and the clauncher stopped slowly and looked puzzled at her.
"We don’t need any more rain, we don’t have any shelter and we’re not all as happy for it as you are," Gry explained while she looked around while trying to decide what to do.
She could see from the tracks that the wagon had traveled back the way they had come, so they were probably heading back towards Cypwater and perhaps trying to contact the Order. There hadn’t been a lot of good places to spent a rain full night.
"You have always said there will be something useful around, Kenan, now I hope you are right, or else I’m in for a long and cold night," Gry said out loud and packed the few things she had taken out of her back.
"Kaipo, please put out the fire. The rain will probably take care of it, but I don’t want to risk having to run from a wildfire as well," Gry said and smiled dryly at the thought of running from a raging fire in the middle of a rainstorm.
"Come on your two," Gry said to the two pokemon and started to walk away with the egg in her arms. Kaipo followed her happily, to him this was just another fun game, while Embla was a lot more reluctant. She didn’t want to leave the fire but didn’t really have any choice now Kaipo had put it out.

"I hope we can find something useful, or else I’ll have to try build something myself," Gry continued to talk aloud. She looked around as she followed the road and noted what there were of trees or rocks, and if anywhere useful to use as base for a shelter.
"I hope I can remember how to do it," she mumbled and imagined how she would have to find a big sturdy branch to lay the other thing on, and how Embla would use her claws to help cut the branches, though that would probably either take too long with her claws, or burn it all if she used her flames.

"They probably wouldn’t like a wildfire either, but they doesn’t seem like they care about the upcoming rain," Gry commented when she had seen a few of the scatterbugs crawling around on the rocks.
There were also a white and red pokemon, that didn’t look like it wanted to be disturbed, and Gry wondered if it had buried something it had trouble finding again. Gry wondered if it had been the digletts that had taken it to tease it, but she had other things to worry about so she let it be with that.

If she stumbled across the ruins she would smile relieved.
"That looks promising, don’t you say Kenan?" Gry said, though she would be careful when investigating the. Ruins could be dangerous.
She would already begin to imagine what they had been build for, and why they had been abandoned.

{ .6 exp!}

The ruins that Gry stumbled upon were old and falling apart, although several arches still stood tall and proud. Some of the pillars had tumbled angrily to the ground and cracked, leaving large, sprawling pellets of stone shaping into the once soft ground. Others were collapsed in, using other pillars and arcs to keep themselves up. It was definitely an interesting sight to behold.

Besides these grey statues that peppered the world, Gry would be able to see a few Pokemon scattered about. Some were huddled together, shivering from the cold – or perhaps something else was looming around. Either way, the handler would have to look around a bit more to see what really was going on, and with the sound of thunder crashing about, she currently had more important things to do first off.

If she looked around and took a bit of a walk through the ruins, she’d find that several arches had collapsed against each other, making a sort of ‘home’ or ‘house’ for several small Pokemon. They wouldn’t mind if Gry settled into the small alcove with them. In fact, once a fire was going, the little Pokemon would huddle closer to the fire and scamper away if any person or Pokemon tried to interact with them. Once it was clear, they’d just settle back near the semi-roaring fire and enjoy the warmth for the rest of the evening.

Despite this, the rain started to pour almost as ironically as Gry found herself underneath something, and boy, did it come down hard. She would be stuck underneath it, of course, safe for the fact that Embla wouldn’t want to go anywhere in the rain, but that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. Even now, the roll of loud, powerful thunder echoed above the sky, and flashes of lightening were coming down hard. It was definitely safe to stay where she was.

The weather eventually would calm down, after another twenty minutes of solid downpour, although the rain would slowly start to let up. Once that happened, from where Gry was, something would seem… off.

Perhaps it was the weird sounds that came from deep within some piled ruins not too far from them, or maybe it was the structurally sound ruins behind them? Either way, the sounds were definitely not human, and were more Pokemon sounding than anything. Perhaps it was something that Gry would want to investigate?

At this moment, she had two options. The first, she could stay where she was and spend the night without moving, although that would be rather boring. She could, though, make friends with the few Pokemon who settled across the fire from her and her own Pokemon.

The other option, though, while much more dangerous and possibly more exciting, was to go find the eerie sounds and see what was making them. If Gry chose this route, she could easily follow the sounds towards the more stable of the ruins, where she’d be unable to go past the entrance because, well, some rather mischievous ghosts would make it virtually impossible. Despite these spirits blocking the entrance, they’d prove rather goofy and more friendly than actually angry and mean. She’d just have to watch the way they moved and the obvious attempts to trying to scare Gry verses start a battle…
