Spring Plot Event!
A wanderer with a floral pokemon comes along! Do they look nice? Menacing? Familiar? Does your character know them? What do they want? Are they a love interest? Oh my! So many possibilities. What is your Character to do?!
A low groan escaped Andrew as he pushed himself further back into the front seat of his car. The engine was off, and the air inside was beginning to chill lower than the temperature outside. Yet he wore his woolly jacket, so he wasn't bothered by the gradual decrease.

He pressed his fingers on each side of his watch and checked the time. 11:47 PM. He clenched his jaw to stop himself from grunting any unnecessary curses. His hand lifted to rub over his eyebrows before a yawn pulled at him. His eyes winced closed then flashed open when he heard the sound of an engine. He shot his head around to see where the car was, noticing the garage door opening across the street.

He ignored it, as it wasn't part of the house he was currently inspecting. Though who would be leaving at nearly midnight? And why? He slowly tilted his head down and to the side, a half-shake of his head. These question's weren't needed. Not for them anyways. He was only concerned with those who lived further down.

Drew grabbed the packet of crisps that sat on the dashboard, only to realize they were empty. He crunched the packet in his hand and tossed it over his side to the back seat. After he shifted to get more comfortable, he gave in to another yawn. Andrew shook his head more fiercely to wake himself up, then he straightened himself.

He shuffled about to search blindly in his pockets. He pulled out a lighter and continued to fumble about a moment longer. He found a pack of cigarettes in the glove-box on the opposite side. It took him a few tries to get the flame sparked, but once he did, it was only a few seconds later before the cigarette was lit. He dragged a slow inhale then gave a smooth exhale of smoke after removing the stick.

His eyes glanced to the digital clock in his car and sighed softly. 12:13 PM. This night felt slower than usual. But perhaps it was just because he kept an eye on the clock that made it feel like it was dragging on. His eyes strayed down the road in the direction where the other car had driven off moments before. Suddenly a flash had filled the sky and lit up the entire street. Though it wasn't lightning, he knew because the sky was clear. Despite that, the flash was purple.

As unusual as it was, he was set in his decision to stay where he was parked. He had a job to do, something he was going to get paid for, as dull as it was. Yet he still couldn't stop himself from wondering what the flashes were coming from, which had been occurring much more often since the initial burst of light. His free hand instinctively went to his pokeball, inside hid his Purrloin. A finger pressed the button in the middle and the laser shot out to take the form of said pokemon.
"Spotter, can I trust you to go and check out the trouble? You have to be careful and come back to me if it's urgent, understand?" He ordered. He did think for a moment about sending Unit with him for some additional back up, but he shouldn't underestimate his partners like that. He instead thinks of this as a test, for the both of them.

The cat-like creature nodded his head in response and gave a cheeky smirk. A paw lifted to give it's own form of a thumbs up, without actually having thumbs, before he jumped through the open window on the passenger side. Drew watched the feline run on all fours to the commotion and took another swig of his cigarette.

It was certainly cold. The Purrloin wanted nothing more than to dig and hide in the snow. Though he didn't, knowing the trust that was thrown on him when his trainer decided to let him out of his ball to check out the commotion on his own. Honestly, he was thankful that he was sent to do this on his own. It made him feel that much more important.

He ran at a steady pace. Perhaps it was a little too slow, but he'd be scolded later if that were the case and then he'd know for next time. It was still a little confusing to know just what was expected of him, still being so new to his trainer. But if he were to just test the waters and learn the boundaries through trial and error, then he'd quickly grow better. Though once he reached the source of the purple flashing, he was sadly disappointed. It was just a young trainer, who seemed to be practicing a battle technique with his Natu.

Spotter watched as the Natu called forth mirages after being ordered to use a move called Night Shade. The images that were created weren't as appealing as the purple flash that came after. It seemed the Natu was struggling to cast a move while avoiding the underwhelming after-blast. The Purrloin decided to make himself known and cautiously stepped out from the empty street he had ran down.

His tail gave a light flicker, almost like a wave as he mewed a little noise. He was noticed immediately by the boy and was as a result, picked up into his arms.

"What a fascinating Pokemon!" He yelled. Probably too loud in the middle of the night, but he didn't get any angry responses so he continued to show his excitement. "Oh this fur! It's so soft! Especially the underbelly, and the tail looks magnificently smooth!" This gave him a reaction, though not from an annoyed and tired neighbor. Spotter swiped the boy across the face and jumped from his tight grip. There he stood on his hind legs and gave a smirk. He revealed the berry he'd swiped from the ranger with a flick of his tail. When the boy had started to notice such appendix, Spotter thought he'd get caught prematurely and decided to get out of his arms while he could.

This, of course gave him a reaction in turn. The Natu, who had been watching in curiosity, jumped between the feline and Dio. Upon noticing the berry, Natu got incredibly jealous. Without warning, the little bird conjured up it's strength and used Night Shade, with no prompt from his trainer. Spotter was subjected to a mirage, like before, though this time it was deliberately terrifying to the feline. While it didn't make contact, he felt as though it did and backed away unconsciously. The ranger, in the midst of this, had begun to shout. He pleaded for his Natu to stop and that it was some misunderstanding.

Well, it wasn't really. Spotter had taken something from the boy and the Natu was now defending him. Perfectly understandable and honestly, this was something the Purrloin should have seen coming. Not wanting to fight without his trainer nearby to give him orders or to carry him away if he gets too hurt to move, Spotter instead decided to flee from the fight.

"Hey, where'a you going? Come back!" Andrew's head turned when he heard the shouting and down the road he could see a few figures. A boy was chasing a cat on the path, followed by a little bird flapping furiously to keep up. Drew gave a low sigh before he got out of the car and stepped around to the front. There, he was greeted by Spotter as he jumped into his trainer's arms.

"What happened?" He grumbled softly. His eyes lifted to the boy who had stopped a few steps away in a breathless mess.

"That creature took my berry!" Shouted the boy. Drew's eyes lowered to the Purrloin who revealed the Kasib berry he had stolen. well this was embarrassing. A detective had a pokemon who was stealing things. Just great.

"Oh, gees, I'm sorry." Drew said. He tried removing the berry from the Purrloin's hands but to no avail. Spotter instead only jumped from his trainer's hands and onto the car. To which Andrew gave a grunt. "This isn't funny you know.. And while I'm doing my job, no less.." He sighed, a hand stretched out with a flat palm. "Come on, just give it to me."

"It's okay! I have plenty of other berries! And I can always find more!" He shouted excitedly, before the boy started to laugh. "My name is Dio, I'm a ranger and I find tonnes of berries when I'm out and about! But the only problem is uh.. Well, when your Pokemon took my berry, Natu got really angry and now it looks like he wants a battle." He said in a lower, much more calm voice.

"Oh, well sure we can have a battle, but not at the moment. I don't want to annoy anyone who might be trying to sleep, and also I'm busy at the moment." Sure, sitting in a car watching a seemingly empty house is busy. Drew sighed at his internal dialogue. "Can it wait 'til morning?" He asked.

"Of course, of course!" Dio said "I'll meet you at the pokemon center, wait- Do you know where that is?" He said only to continue, "Or we can meet at the move re-learners! She has a shop that's hard to miss!" Andrew had to hold up his hands and show his palms to the boy.

"I'm new to this town and I don't know where those things are.." Drew said in a soft voice. Perhaps if he spoke calmly, then it would rub off on Dio. He had gotten more wary of the sleeping neighbors every time the boy yelled.

"That's okay, I'll show you. Do you have a map of the town at least?" The soft voice seemed to have worked. Drew shook his head slowly, however.

"No, I don't intend to stay here long."

"Alright, well down this road is a little park, your Purrloin would be able to show you the way, that's where we bumped into each other. But if you turn left and follow that road, on the corner a few blocks down there's the move re-learner. It's a brick house and it smells of incense and all sorts of berries blended together. That's why it's hard to miss. Otherwise, from the park, go right and then left after two blocks and you can get to the pokemon center."

"Why don't we just meet at the park?" It made the most sense as it was just down the road. He knew this road well enough, he thought. He'd been sitting here for almost 4 hours now, looking at the same houses. It had been etched into his mind. Not that he's going to go anywhere else anyways.

"That's a good idea!" Dio again yelled, nodding his head with certainty. "I'll see you there, tomorrow morning before the sun's up!" He called out as he ran away, waving his arms excitedly. The Natu followed behind him, happy with the results. Andrew's eyes strayed to the car where Spotter was laying on his side with his tail swaying slowly. A mischievous look on his face with a smirk to match. Despite the lack of sun and the lateness of the hour, Andrew could still see it bright as day and frowned.

"I don't care how amusing you think it is, being a thief. I don't find it funny at all." Though, it is a little ironic.. Andrew walked across to the house he was supposed to be watching. In the window he could see the feint flashing of a tv screen. He heard the muffled voices and some footsteps. That's all he needed to witness to know they were awake inside the house. He stepped around to the front door and gave it a firm knock. After he waited about a minute, the door was opened.

"Good morning, sorry to interrupt your show, but I'm here to give you an update. There's been no activity around your house in particular. I haven't seen anyone who might seem suspicious, but I'm not going to stop so soon. I've got something to do later on in the park just down the road. It might be a good distraction for you if you come by and maybe the person you think is creeping could come as well to be part of the crowd." Andrew explained.

The morning couldn't come sooner for Andrew. After he'd spent the night in his car, he was more than happy to welcome the sun's warmth. Though he had to get moving before he could embrace the sun. In the brisk dusk, Drew strolled down the road and into the park where he was told to meet Dio.

Now, the boy did say they'd meet before sunrise, but he was unsure if he was being honest or not. Whatever the case, he could stay for a little while before the hunger got the better of him. He wandered to the middle of the open area where there sat a few benches. He took his seat on one as he waited for the boy to show up.

The sun had started to light up the area before he heard the familiar yelling. He looked to his side and saw a boy waving his arms about. There was something about his face that he didn't notice the night before, perhaps because of the darkness hiding some features, but that was to be expected.

"Hello, Dio" Andrew said in a hushed voice. There still might be some people sleeping and he'd rather not disturb them. Even if Dio was doing a good job of that already. "Did you have a good rest?" asked Drew. It was only polite after all.

"Of course I did! And so did my Pokemon! Now, I hope you're ready!" He shouts, as excited as a child opening their presents on Christmas day. Without a warning, or any kind of countdown for the inevitable, Dio throws a Pokeball and calls for his Reef to be let out. From the laser provided by the Pokeball, a stiff, little Pokemon was shown. It had some growths that looked almost like thorns growing from it's body and it rocked itself on four stubby limbs for legs.

"Hm, alright then. Let's try this, Unit." Said Drew, throwing a Pokeball nonchalantly. His ball opened in the middle of it's throw and shot out a beam of light. It took the form of his Growlithe who barked his own hello.

"Alright! So this will be a one on one battle. After one of our Pokemon is unable to fight, we'll head to the Pokemon Center, sound good?"

"Sure." was all Drew could respond with. It was better to just have the possibility of losing one Pokemon, rather than all three. "Alright, start out with ember!" Andrew said as he took the reigns. Unit took a strong stance and concentrated for a very short moment to formulate flames in his mouth. His jaws opened, blowing out a small fire onto the Corsola, which seemed to be unaffected by the fire type attack.

"Hah! Alright, our turn! Bubble!" Shouted Dio, stretching an arm out to point dramatically at the Growlithe. Andrew's eyes opened further. Maybe battling first thing in the morning after half a night of watching a house to make sure nobody was being stalked wasn't such a great idea. He was too tired to even order Unit to dodge the oncoming water attack. Reef inhaled a sharp breath, only to exhale a mouthful of bubbles that shot down at the Growlithe.
"Yeah! Good work Reef!"

"I'm sorry Unit! Let's try another ember!" Unit didn't react straight away. He was in a little daze after being sprayed by bubbles. Though he still managed to get up with a growl and proceeded to shoot another mouthful of fire at the Corsola. again, it didn't look like it did anything. The stumpy Pokemon still rocked from little limb to little limb.

"Bubble again, Reef!" Dio was quick to retaliate, with the Corsola following suit. Reef brought down another batch of bubbles to blast Unit, who was now feeling the effect of having his speed lowered. His movements were delayed and his breaths had become labored. Andrew watched as the puppy Pokemon stood on all four paws defiantly. A heavy feeling of regret began to sink in the pit of his stomach. His eyebrows pushed together and he gave a frown. This isn't pleasant to watch at all.

"Unit, try a bite." Part of him knew there was no winning this fight. He could hope for a miracle, but he wasn't one to wish on stars.

"Hey Reef! Tackle!" Dio ordered, before Unit could even register what he'd been told to do, he was met with the hard edge of Corsola's body. He was pushed a little bite, but with the close range, he was able to bite on the coral Pokemon without moving. But it still came with the price of being hit twice in a row and it was clearly taking it's toll.

"Alright, let's finish this off! Bubble!" The Corsola, now at close range, was able to shoot bubbles in Unit's face with great ease. Unit couldn't hold on any longer. His mouth relaxed open, letting go of his grip on Reef. He tried to stand up again, though his legs were shaky and he immediately fell. When his head hit the ground, it all came on Drew, who stood like a statue. Barely breathing himself, he moved slowly to his knees.

1 on 1 battle between Corsola and Growlithe.

Growlithe Starts the battle by using Ember, it's 4 times resisted by the opposing Corsola.

Corsola returns with bubble, slowing Growlithe's speed.

Growlithe tries another Ember which again, does little damage.

Corsola again returns with Bubble. It slows Growlithe's speed more. Growlithe's Flash Fire is activated but to no use.

Corsola uses Tackle & Growlithe returns with Bite.

While in close-range, Corsola uses Bubble to finish off Growlithe.

Growlithe has fainted and is unable to battle. Corsola is the winner.
Dio, who had returned his Corsola with a congratulations, stepped over to Andrew and gave a soft pat on the shoulder. "Hey, don't worry about it, I'll help you to the Pokemon Center and we can have another battle. I'll go easier on you next time." Andrew only lifted a hand to swat the boy away.

"No, I need to take him myself." Drew said in a low voice. He moved to his feet and stepped over to Growlithe's lifeless body where he picked up the Pokemon in his arms.

"Let me help. I'm responsible for this, and I cant stand seeing Pokemon hurt. I have to help. I'm coming whether you want me to or not!" Dio yelled sternly and he followed Drew's steps closely.

"Good morning! Welcome to our Pokemon Center!" Called the cheery voice of the nurse from behind the counter. Andrew stepped over with the fainted Growlithe still in his arms. Drew didn't return Unit to his ball because he wanted to be there while the canine was revived. He had asked to stay with the Growlithe before the nurse took him into a separate room and she saw no reason to turn him down.

It didn't take very long, an hour at most, before Unit started to shift and yip as he woke. Andrew, who had sat in a chair beside the bed all morning, was relieved to see his dog partner healthy again. He reached a had out to pat his fur and pushed out a low sigh. "Thank goodness.." He whispered.

Dio, who had been waiting in the front of the center the entire time, greeted Drew when he walked out with a comforting smile and a pat on the shoulder.
"I guess everything's alright now? Growlithe is in good health?"

"Yeah, but I don't know why you stayed." Andrew replied. His voice may have sounded a little snarky or on the grumpy side, his eyes not helping as they were narrowed and giving off a dangerous vibe.

"I stayed because it's my duty. As a Pokemon ranger, it's my job to ensure Pokemon are safe, healthy and happy."

"It was your fault my Growlithe fainted! You're the one who wanted a battle!" Drew yelled. He'd forgotten just where they were so when people started to turn to them, he felt a little silly. But that didn't stop him from being angry at the young boy.

"You're the one who sent out a Growlithe against a rock-water type! Haven't you ever had a Pokemon battle before? Don't you know about typings?" Dio snapped back. This left Andrew speechless. He'd only stopped to think about it now, but Dio was right. This was his first Pokemon battle with another Trainer and as much as he knew about Pokemon, he didn't realize typings played such a huge role. Now he felt like an idiot because he never thought of it before.

It only makes sense that a water type would be more than capable to take out a fire type. Or a fire type to beat a grass type, it all made sense to him now. If only he could have caught onto it sooner. His eyes softened and lowered to the ground. His mouth shifted to a frown and he took a step back.
" 'm sorry for yelling." He mumbled in a low voice. It was rare for him to admit when he was wrong. Being a detective, he was supposed to make assumptions and ride with them. It was part of the job, but not a part of life. That was a heavy lesson to learn.

"It's OK."

"Is it, really?" He asked. Drew's head tilted with the question, as sarcastic as it was. Dio, in response, shook his head.

"No, but you're upset." He laughed. Andrew couldn't help but chuckle and together, they walked out of the center in the hopes that nobody would care too much about their little scene.

Once outside Andrew could see a familiar face. It was the same old man who he'd met the night before watching tv in the early hours of morning. The same old man who he'd been seeing since he got into the town. The same old man who had promised to provide him with payment if Andrew could find out who was following him.

Unfortunately for the old man, Andrew had no answers for him. Drew apologized to Dio and said he'd be right back before he walked across the road to greet the senior. "Gerard, I'm sorry this morning didn't go as planned."

Slow is one way to put this creature, both physically as mentally. Always carrying a glazed expression, Bryan needs to be told three times what to before he actually gets to doing it. This has led to many frustrating, as well as amusing moments with his trainers. Neither has ever been too angry at him, because he always seems completely capable of acting upon his orders during a battle.

"Don't be so smug about it!" The old man growled in response. He was clearly unhappy and showed it with tense shoulders and tight fists on each of his sides. His jaw was clenched and his brows pushed together. His entire face was etched in wrinkles, and being angry just accentuated them more.

"I've been watching you and your house for almost a week now, I've seen no signs of vandalism or harassment from anyone. You claim to be bullied or made fun of, but I've seen no such actions made towards you."

"That's because it's all happening behind my back!"

"I'm starting to think that maybe you're a little bit anxious about these things happening. I've asked around the town about you and while people say you're, reserved.." He had to pause to think of a nicer word than 'cold' as he has been told. "People also say you're hard to approach, because you make it that way." He spoke with a soft voice. He tried to let the other listen without getting offended. Unfortunately, it didn't go as planned.

"Don't you go blaming me for this, you slack, Son of a bitch!" Gerard yelled. He grabbed Andrew's shirt by the collar and pulled which caused Drew to stumble a little and fall off balance. "You've no idea what I've had to go through! Nobody has any idea!" When he let go of Andrew's shirt, he did so with a shove. Andrew fell to the ground and landed on his rear with an audible groan. Dio watched the entire scene play out from across the road and ran over to help Andrew once he had fallen.

"Hey! What's going on?!" Dio yelled and waved his arms to grab attention.

"Back off kid, it's none of your business!" Gerard snarled in retaliation.

"You hurt my friend, so it's become my business." Dio responded. Andrew could have rolled his eyes at how corny the young boy sounded, calling him his friend after they just met only the night before. Sure they had a lighthearted moment outside of the center a few moments beforehand, but was that really all it took to be someone's friend? Andrew found himself pondering the question longer than he should have as he heard the thud of Dio being shoved to the ground beside him.

"What the hell?! Dio did nothing wrong!" Andrew growled as he got back to his feet. "You must be out of your mind!"

"He stepped in to someone else's affairs, it's only fair he gets what he deserves!"

"He's only trying to help me because you pushed me!" Andrew yelled back. By now they were drawing a big crowd of on-lookers, including the people who saw his little spat with Dio in the Pokemon Center. From the corner of his eye he could see a Mudsdale with a man in uniform who rode atop. He could only assume that was an officer of some kind and he internally groaned. This wasn't the kind of attention he needed. He could guess that Gerard didn't want that attention either. He had to think of a smooth way to get out of the situation so they could both get out scot-free.

The area quickly filled with people who were attracted to the scene. It seemed amusing, an elder male shoving two younger men, but there was more to the story than that. All the on-lookers were ignorant to the reasoning. What gave Andrew the desire to leave, however, was the officer who had observed the situation unfold down the road from his Mudsdale.

"I know you're upset but yelling and pushing us around isn't going to do anything. If I haven't done a good job, you can keep your money and we'll go, we'll leave you alone, if that's what you want." Drew said as he helped Dio to his feet. His voice remained soft and calm. He didn't want to anger Gerard further. When he started to walk away with his friend, however, the reaction he got wasn't what he wanted. His arm was grabbed and he was pulled back to face the senior in a forceful movement.

"Don't you dare walk away from me, I'm not finished with you!" He shouted. He really didn't care about the crowd of people who were concerned. Any brash movements made by the older male could end up hurting him and the people who watched were ready to step in to help if necessary.

It all just became more hassle for Andrew. What was a private job for him had turned into a public show. It didn't help when Gerard and thrown two Pokeballs at once and brought out his Pokemon. From the capsules appeared a little floral Pokemon known as Comfey and a donkey-like creature, who was recognized as a Mudbray.

"I'm not going to do this. It's pointless!" Andrew opposed.

"What's the harm? The Pokemon Center is just across the road. He's not letting you leave, so just get it over with." Dio whispered. He didn't sound excited or happy about the situation.

"Would you fight with me?" Andrew asked with a low sigh.

"Of course." Dio answers. He nodded his head softly. He brought out his Corsola, a familiar face. Andrew decides the water type is to fight the Mudbray, which given the name, looked to be a ground type. His eyes moved to the Comfey and noticed the flowers. Must be a grass type, he figured. With that in mind, he called out his Growlithe.

"Let's go Unit, we're going to it right, this time!" he called. The Growlithe in question barked out in response, only to fall to the ground a moment later.
"What? Come on, now isn't the time for a nap." Andrew commented

"Leia use Leech Seed! Bryan, Mud Slap!" Gerard shouted without warning. Andrew's eyes lifted to the opposing Pokemon and watched the Mudbray shake his head. His ears flopped with the movement but the Comfey spat out some seeds that landed around Growlithe's body and were planted there.

It didn't look like it did anything for the current moment so Andrew decided to make his attack. But Dio beat him to it.
"Reef, let's go with bubble!" He shouted, his arm stretched forward.

"Growlithe, bite!" The Growlithe, who had been scratching behind his ear with his back paw shook his head and moved to his feet with a jump. He ran after the Comfey and caught her in his mouth. The Corsola was a little slower to respond, but still shot out a bubble at the opposing team. The bubbles spread out to hurt both the donkey and the flower Pokemon. Some splashed out as the popped on impact, hurting the Growlithe, though only mildly.

"Leia!!" Gerard shouted. Clearly concerned with his Pokemon, he took a step forward and wanted to help get the fire dog off his precious Comfey.
"Vine Whip!" He yelled. The Comfey spun it's flowers in the Growlithe's face before letting go of the vine it held, which also held all the flowers in place. The little vine whipped Unit in his face and with a whine, he jumped back. He jumped on the spot again when something beneath him started to shift and grow. The seeds from earlier had started to suck out Unit's energy and pass it back to the Comfey.

The Mudbray finally kicked up some dirt and mud. He thrashed around in the little mud he'd conjured up, which caused it to flick out at the Corsola. It splashed in the coral Pokemon's face and blocked it's eyes momentarily.
"Reef! Are you okay?" Dio asked. The Corsola answered with a little grunt.
"Alright, Bubble again!" Dio yelled excitedly.

"Leia, Draining Kiss, Bryan use Mud Slap!" Gerard called. Comfey was the first to move. It hovered over to the Growlithe and planted a kiss in his fur. It took some health with the action before twirling it's flowers. It seemed to be in high spirits, from what Andrew could see.

"Unit, Ember!" Andrew ordered. If everybody else were going to use the nicknames, then he decided to do it as well. Corsola finally shot out it's bubbles at the opposed Pokemon. The Mudbray, despite being told to attack, didn't move. Or if it did, it moved incredibly slowly. It kicked around in the dirt but didn't do anything productive by any means. Gerard, however, didn't seem angry by this or frustrated. He was more focused on his Comfey.

"Vine Whip! On the rock!" He called and pointed a finger at the Corsola. The Comfey complied. It grow long vines and used them to whip heartily at the Corsola. It looked like it played some kind of game in the way it whipped. Almost like it used them for skipping ropes or something similar. However the grass type attack was Super Effective on the Corsola and it showed. Corsola winced and grunted in pain.

Mudbray finally kicked around and sprayed mud at the Growlithe. This, with the life being sucked from him by the Leech Seed caused Unit to fall. His head lowered and he fell, fainted.

"No!! Unit!!" Andrew yelled. Not again he thought. Just minutes after being revived, he was fainted again. Dio understood what Andrew was feeling, but he knew now wasn't the time to be upset about it.

"You want me to take over?" He asked.

"No." Andrew said as his head shook.
"I've got more Pokemon..." He added. He returned Unit to his pokeball and brought out his next Pokemon.
"Let's go, Taser!" Andrew shouted.

"Alright, Reef, Bubble." Dio said. He was confident that this would be enough to take out the Mudbray, and it was. The Donkey fell to it's knees and gave a groan before it collapsed. Before it could even hit the ground, however, Gerard had returned it.

"You did good, Bryan." He whispered to the ball in his hand.
"Comfey, Vine Whip again!" Gerard yelled, wasting no time to finish off the Corsola. Reef fell and fainted.

Andrew watched and noticed how Gerard and even Dio now had accepted their Pokemon had fainted. But he couldn't understand.
"Why do you move on so easily? Your Pokemon have fainted, doesn't that hurt?" He asked. He got a strange look from Gerard and Dio gave a soft laugh.

"Of course we're upset, but we're not completely broken up about it, because they did their best. That's all we can hope for. Pokemon fainting is just a part of it." He shrugged his shoulders.

"But it doesn't have to be.. If you look after your Pokemon and make sure that it doesn't happen, then it shouldn't." Andrew said in disbelief.

"You cant keep your Pokemon from fainting forever. It's just a part of battles." Dio replied. Andrew realized in that moment that he didn't want to make his Pokemon battle if that's what it meant. If having them faint is simply unavoidable, then he didn't want to do it. He never wanted to see his Pokemon faint and in one day he'd seen it happen twice.

"Then I dont want to fight any more. Dio, I'm sorry. But I'm not a Pokemon Trainer." He felt bad for abandoning the battle prematurely, but he returned his Tynamo and took a step back. He wanted to wait for Dio to finish it, however so he stayed, before he'd go to heal his Growlithe.

Dio nodded his head softly. He grabbed a Pokeball and sent out his Mienfoo. With a quick order to use Pound, Mienfoo jumped to the Comfey and proceeded to punch the fairy Pokemon. It didn't do much, but Comfey was still very weak.

"Leia, use Vine Whip." Gerard said in a soft voice. The Comfey complied and used Vine Whip. It didn't hurt the Mienfoo, who used Pound again to end the battle.

Gerard, Andrew and Dio all walked across to the Pokemon Center to heal their Pokemon. The nurse was surprised to see Andrew and Dio again so soon, but didn't question them. She only took the Pokemon with a soft smile and went in the back to revive them. To wait for their Pokemon, the three men took a seat in the waiting room together.

"I didn't want any of that to happen." Gerard said softly.
"I didn't want my Pokemon to faint." He added with wet eyes. His brows pushed together in a sad expression.

"Neither did I.." Andrew agreed. Dio only nodded his head in silence.
"I hate this.. Seeing my Pokemon faint, any Pokemon fainted is hard for me to deal with.. I'm not supposed to do this, deal with this."

"But you are. You have to, because you are a trainer, that's why you got the license, isn't it?" Dio asked, his head tilted to the side.

"No, I got my license so I could catch Pokemon, not train or use them for battling." Drew said in a soft voice.

"Then.. If you didn't get your license to battle, why did you?"

"Because I had to. When I left my town I had to have a Pokemon with me as a partner for my job, as a detective. These Pokemon, they aren't my tools for battle. They're my partners and they're not supposed to fight, they shouldn't." Andrew said.

Gerard listened to the other two speak, but he didn't add anything.

"That doesn't mean they wont fight or faint. Your Pokemon.. They might be your partners, but you're still using them, aren't you? You're still using them for your job. They still have things they need to do and they're still going to get themselves into trouble, in one way or another." Dio muttered. "It's part of life, they're going to fight and they're going to get hurt."

"Even if I'm not a trainer? Even if that's not what I am? I dont want them to.." Andrew sighed.

"My wife.." Gerard spoke softly, his head lifted to look at the other men. "She, uhh, wasn't a trainer. She only had a Lilipup for a pet. We never meant for me to go into this profession.. But when she- .." He paused. He had gotten choked up by the memories and it was clear to Andrew. He could see how hard it was for Gerard to bring up old memories. His hands started to shake and his eyes closed. Gerard's head turned away.
"We never wanted to be Pokemon trainers but that's what I am. My Pokemon are my reminders. And now they're both hurt.." He whispered.

"You don't need to say any more.." Andrew said softly.

"My point, if you wouldn't interrupt me, is that we never mean for any of these things to happen. I never wanted to be a trainer, I never wanted any of this!" Gerard growled, his hands gripped at his pants.
"You say you don't want to see your Pokemon hurt, well neither do I! I never wanted to see my wife hurt, but now she's gone! She's gone and I cant bring her back like I can bring my Pokemon back!"

"But that's a good thing" Dio added.
"As upsetting as it is, your wife is gone. But your Pokemon, your mementos, they will always be there for you. They will always come back." He said. He turned to Andrew with a hand on his shoulder.
"They will be back." He assured.

"I guess, yeah.. You're right.." Andrew mumbled. His eyes lowered.

Some time had passed before the nurse returned with four Pokeballs in a tray.
"Your Pokemon have been fully restored. We hope to see you again." She said with a smile. Andrew, Dio and Gerard all grabbed some Pokeballs and stepped outside to make sure they got their own Pokemon, by opening all the balls to check.

"It was nice to meet you, maybe we'll see each other again some time!" Dio said before he left the area with his Pokemon.

"Gerard.. I'm sorry I couldn't help you with your stalker. The people you think are harassing you behind your back. Again, you can keep your money if I didn't do an adequate job, but I found no such things happening. As far as I can see, this is all just in your head." Andrew explained.

Gerard took a long moment to think and smiled. His face wrinkled with it.
"Thank you, for everything.." He said before he turned and walked away.

Andrew gave a long exhale and looked around. He walked around the Pokemon Center into an empty alley and pulled out a cigarette. With a spark from his lighter, he took some time to himself finally, to relax.

Hello there Kris, apologies for the wait. Now you know how things go, so let’s get right into things~

I want to applaud you in bringing out Andrew’s lack of knowledge on battling and his dislike for it. I was boggled when I saw Andrew pit his Growlithe against a Corsola, which can beta him twice as hard. You clearly and easily conveyed how Andrew would much rather handle things himself, rather than risk his Pokémon getting hurt. Or worse, fainting. I was hoping to see a bit more on what effect the two faintings could have done to Andrew’s psyche, but that can be explored in a later topic.

Just a quick reminder Comfy, Mudbray and Mudsdale are Isdan Pokémon, whose existence has only been made public to Godai for a few days/weeks by now. Unless Andrew follows the news religiously along with any talks on the new Pokémon he wouldn’t know what those three Pokémon are. The chance of a Godian officer using one of them is plausible however as it could serve as a program to make the Pokémon and inhabitants more at ease with one another. That was a nice touch.

Now while I liked the topic in general, I do feel that that details concerning the surroundings were very bare to non existent. There was no information on what kind of car Andrew rode with, rental or personal to start with, what kind of neighbourhood he found him or what kind of weather the day was offering to the Town’s inhabitants. Was there nothing special around that grabbed his attention, a smell that reminded him of home, a sound that pissed him the hell off?

The interactions with the fellow humans were interesting, if a bit awkward as far as I saw it. My biggest example of this would be the aftermath of the double battle. Gerard had inflicted violence upon Andrew and Dio, but once the battle was over none of them had a single problem with him walking next to them to the Center. I understand he wanted to heal his fainted ‘mon, but wasn’t he the instigator of the fight so shouldn’t there have been a bit of animosity? Well, that’s just the main one that I found that way but maybe it can give you some ideas for future interactions.

Lastly, I just wanted to bring notice to your usage of your Encounter. While we have no issue with members requesting a certain number of encounters, please make sure that enough care and time is put in all of them and there aren’t any left out. It’s just a remark concerning how Dio’s Mienfoo barely made an impact on the story, and it felt like she was only mentioned because she was rolled. Maybe it would be better in the future to limit your encounters a bit and tackle them one at a time. This will prevent you from spreading yourself too thin, and allows you more leeway to experiment with Andrew. Remember, you don’t have to get an encounter in a topic to make it enjoyable

Right then, I’ll leave things off here and am looking forward to Andrew’s next adventure~

Nobody says "Fuck you" like I do
"Strength is the only thing that matters in this world.
Everything else is just a delusion for the weak."

"Those who have never seen peace and those who have never seen war have different values.
Those who stand at the top determine what's wrong and what's right.

Justice will prevail, you say? But of course it will.

Whoever wins becomes justice."

One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead men got up to fight,
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot each other.
