[Today’s warp band feed features two individuals, and one massive gigantic grey blob. Friends might recognize Yosuke Hanamura and Yukiko Amagi. And some might even guess that blob is the infamous “Snor-Lord” but then they might also easily not, because really he’s just kind of a dweeb. There’s a serious look in the teenager’s eyes, like they have something incredibly serious to say. And even the infamous outlaw Snorlax seems quieter than usual.]

Hey. So, Yukiko and I sorta had an encounter the other day. Like, one of the divine kind.

[He takes a deep breath.] One of the gods contacted us. And it had some pretty important things to say.

[Yukiko’s head dips as she greets the viewers, and she pushes up her glasses before speaking in an equally solemn voice.]

It was a god named Suicune. It said it was the North Wind. The...Gale that brings the frost. One of the winter gods, I’d guess. It had kinda a lot to say, but it was really...um...weird, mostly because it wanted us to ask questions and not the other way around.

[He nods, looking at her and then back to the feed.]

And the answers we got weren’t exactly good. [She breaks in with a nod.] No, they really weren’t.

[He takes another breath, trying to recall everything to the best of his ability.]

We asked about Gigas, and Sanctuary. Turns out the gods have an opinion on them, too.

[She takes a breath as well, and Snor-Lord’s hands drop down onto both of their shoulders. The big brute leans in between them and grunts.]

It also said a few things about the gods too, and how they think. Like...they definitely are testing us. And they have a reason. But it didn’t say what, and it seemed like it was working for another god. Which I guess points to a kind of hierarchy?

[Snor-Lord nods again and speaks in a serious series of Snors/Laxes/Snorlaxs.]

Yeah, it was also kind of a jerk. Talkin’ about manners like a big lamer.

[Yosuke rolls his shoulder in irritation, not wanting the big pokemon’s hand there.]

Get your paws offa me! Anyway, it was seriously freaky. Especially with what it had to say. But we couldn’t sit here and keep this to ourselves. We’ll be here if anyone’s got any questions.

((ooc: Replies will come from either Yosuke and Yukiko and Snor-Lord, and if you prefer action they’re in one of the residential district parks. If you want a joint thread or one of them specifically, let us know in your header!

Also, order doesn't matter- feel free to boomerang either one of them if the other isn't around! It will help make things go faster :D ))

[action, Residential District]
[Sometime in the early evening, there comes a brief rumble of footsteps from one of the towers in the shabbier part of the Residential District before the door bursts open and a small horde of Pokemon stampedes out.

This is shortly followed by a roiling cloud of smoke and a young teenaged boy carrying a pan of fire. ...It was probably a pan of something meant to be edible at some point, but now it's mostly just a pan of fire.

He lobs it as far away from them as possible the moment he makes it to relative safety, coughing and spluttering.]

Someone use Water Gun!

[Sentret, Teddiursa, Togetic, Drifloon, Purrloin, Bagon, Espeon, and Cottonee slowly turn to stare at their trainer.]

...I've got to make friends with a Water type.

[While he works on that, he takes off his oven mitts and begins to beat at the flames with them instead. Good thing cobblestone isn't flammable. ...Well. It's probably not.]

[video, public, much later]
Hi, everyone. ...Um.

It's been a while since everything that happened now. I hope everyone's been able to recover from their injuries - if you still need medical assistance for any reason, please come by the Medical Center. Or I'd be happy to come over and see you, too.

I guess I wanted to ask... what exactly was Sanctuary making and who... saw them? I didn't really understand too much of what was going on, but I feel like... we ought to be telling the Council how we feel about all of this, too, right? Won't they be taking some part in the decisions, too?

I'm back.

[It had been surprisingly difficult to find a potted sunflower this year. Not the right season, not the right soil, not the right environment. But he had a way of encouraging life where it wasn't meant to be... and he pats the last of the dirt in place, now, as he squats in his sanctuary.]

Sometimes, I want to ask them to have something proper put up... You would hate that, though. It would be nicer to do this out in the forest, I know, but... I think this spot is OK, right?

I miss you... )

Welcome to the Medical Center!

[Instead of the usual receptionist, anyone who visits the Medical Center in the afternoon will instead be faced with an awkwardly smiling boy who is barely visible above the counter.]

I'm sorry to say that many of our, um, highly qualified healers are... are busy... right now.

[He gives an awkward smile as some loud bellows echo from the hallways behind him.]

But our staff today would be happy to make you comfortable while you wait!


...Um, well, that's actually just me. My name is Lucas, and I've been training to be a medic for a year and a half. If you'd like to tell me what's wrong, I'll see what I can do to relieve the pain while you wait for a professional's opinion.

[Crashes and bangs.]

...T-There's a Snorlax, you see. It tried to eat some of our equipment...

[More bellows.]

Actually, it ate a bed...... and the chair and the table and the... bedpan. But don't worry! It's under control, and you shouldn't be waiting longer than a half hour. Please don't try to go back there; it's restricted access.

[.........To anyone who continues to stare at him in horror, Lucas will wipe away the beads of sweat pooling on his forehead before thrusting forward something furry and cuddly.]

A-Ah! Would you -- Would you like to hold our therapy Eevee...?

Video(/Action?) - Lake Shrine
[Good morning, Union! Though some might think that it's not the case, what with the rain that pouring down across the entire forest area. One would think that this is the perfect day to stay indoors, right?

Well, according to this video feed from the Lake Shrine, that's not the case. Said feed is provided by a rather adorable Teddiursa who's fiddling with the Warp Band inside someone's tent. ~Oh, bother...it appears to be a rather dreary day to seek out Honey, isn't it? Though I hope my friends don't catch cold in all this rain.~] Ursa... Teddie? Teddiur.

[He lifts the flap of the tent to show two figures standing in the rain: Right and his recently-evolved Lucario, both looking rather rain-soaked. The Lucario in question appears to be focused on something in the distance, beyond the soggy treeline across the lake. After a few minutes, he finally shook his head, muttering something.]

Wow, that took a while. She must be pretty far out, then. Once she gets back, we'll notate how far away you saw her aura on the map. [Right then cups his hands around his mouth as he calls out.] Natasha~! You can come back now~!

[Then, a certain high-pitched squeak came from behind the Teddiursa. ~Winnie, please; I'm trying to sleep here!] Zu-zu; zubat!

Ursa! Teddie. [~Oh, goodness! I'm so sorry, Vlad; I didn't mean to awaken you.~ The feed does shift to show a grumpy Zubat hanging from the roof pole of the tent shortly before the feed terminates.

Of course, if anyone's passing through the area today, they could come across Right's campsite. Or maybe even see a certain Purrloin taking her sweet time back towards the lake.]

[Sally-the-Darumaka has a very unusual fond for touching Maka's warp band. She knows if she touches it, sometimes she'll get to see people on the other side, and she likes seeing people--she's very social for a Pokemon that does socially unacceptable things like touching things that aren't hers...and leaving flaming droppings in places. Even when they're up in the mountains, Sally still pushes and prods Maka into turning on the feed to say hello to the people.

Mostly she wants to say hello, Maka looks somewhat miffed by the insistence of her companion when the feed turns on and is actually in the middle of speaking to her.]

--There's not really a point, Sally, we've got enough to think about with this enviro--[Maka's eyes flick to the screen, expression turning sheepish.] ...Hello, everyone. Sally wanted everyone to know that we're in the mountains right now.

[Sally looks absurdly proud of this fact, Maka just sighs.]

I'm actually missing those hot springs, it's starting to get a little cold. If anybody has the wherewithal to start building one in the city, please do, I'm sure everyone else would be happy about it as well.

[The girl shivers, looking uneasy--the Pokemon looks confused about why or how her companion is getting so cold and clings to her arm to transfer over some warmth.]

Well, it's not all bad up here, I met with a Larvitar and bonded with him. I haven't seen any other Pokemon around, but I'll keep looking for now. We're going up further, so wish us luck! [Daaa!

The feed ends there.]

With the revelation of the presence of the Enhanced, Union was able to quickly mobilize. As the strange conditions continued to worsen, the Trainers of Union once again set out to bring order to the chaos.

This time however, they do not walk entirely alone. A small, dedicated team remains behind in Union, sorting through the dossiers and information that Crystal and Rory have collected. Connected to those in the field via Warp Band network, hopefully they can identify the Enhanced and find a way to calm them before a tragedy occurs.

[OOC: There will be a thread for each active team based on the sign-ups. Any areas that did not have any sign-ups will not be present and will be addressed later. As per our usual standards, moderators and NPC helpers will progress the log at least once every 24 hours. The Union log will work somewhat differently from the battle logs in that the participants will be collecting information concerning the Enhanced; when enough information has been accumulated, they will be asked to tag into the battle threads to provide guidance and support to those out in the field.

Characters participating in the Union log will function as support staff for this event. They will have their own log interacting with Rory and Crystal and as characters in other logs encounter the Enhanced, they can use the observations made to try to find out more about the Enhanced in the field and help the people in the field determine an appropriate situation. Because of this, players in the Union thread may threadjack any ongoing log to relay information as needed.

The outcome of this event will depend very much on player decisions and the ability of the characters to respond to the threats at hand, so we would highly encourage you all to tag as regularly as possible. Thanks!]

[ It was the middle of the night when she took the band, her party well on their way toward the forest shrine. But as soon as she saw the announcement, she knew this couldn't wait. She was trembling--both angry and afraid of what was happening, and what could very well happen to her by saying this. But it didn't matter at this point.

Team Evolution messed up, and Rory was probably still playing coy. Someone needed to call them on their bullshit.

Elly takes a breath before speaking. Even with the light of the campfire, she looks a bit pale. ]

I'm doing this beyond my better judgment. I shouldn't be saying the things I'm about to say. So let me begin by apologizing. To my friends, my co-workers, to anyone who I've had the opportunity to meet in both Union and Caldera; I've been deceiving you. I'll get to that eventually, but that's not why I'm here on the Band.

I'm here to warn you.

Regarding the Enhanced. I know very little about them myself. They're somewhat common knowledge to citizens of Gigas-- [ A pause. ] Like myself. Rory is right, something about Gigas prevents us from having any answer to Enlightened, unless they come from other places, like Caldera. I don't know when the project started. What I do know is from my training, and even that is severely limited. They're... savage on the battlefield. There were even drugs that were manufactured in the Gigan military to try to replicate some of the combat prowess of the Enhanced. They work, but...

[ There is a lot of hesitance there, and Elly looks away from the camera, trailing off. It takes her a moment to be able to continue again. ]

These people should be approached with extreme caution, if you do find them. As was pointed out, one of the side-effects to the experimentation that made them Enhanced is instability. I'm not sure what causes it, but most of the Enhanced I served alongside were already a bit... skewed. Certain things made it worse, but it varied depending on the person.

I've never heard of an instance where Enhanced have caused disturbances like this, so I have no idea what is going on. Rory and Dr. Verdine--I'm kicking myself for not figuring this out before, since that woman is involved--might not even know themselves. Or they might be hiding something. I can't say. I can make assumptions, but I can't say for sure.

Team Evolution itself doesn't function the same way that the greater populous of Gigas do. To be sure, there are agents in Team Evolution that are from Gigas, but as far as I know they are not directly allied. To that, it's possible that they do want the best for these Enhanced. If it was Gigas, I can't say they would make the same concessions.

How do I know this? Well... As said, I served alongside them. Until a few months ago, I was a member of the Gigan military. I was recruited at a young age, and until about a year ago, didn't know any better that my actions would have such a lasting, horrible effect. I know that is no excuse.

I am no longer aligned with them, before anyone asks. If anyone is even listening to me anymore--I understand if you aren't. As far as my commanding officers are concerned, Elhaym Van Houten died on the battlefield. And as far as I'm concerned, she did as well.

I don't expect any of you to trust me, but I'm sick of lying, and I want to help. All I can do is tell you what I know, even if it might put me in a bad place doing so. I don't care anymore. Union has been more than welcoming to someone like me, and, after living here and meeting all of the people, I know where my loyalties lie.

[Voice, Public]
[It's well past midnight when a voice begins to sound over the network. He doesn't really know how to maintain anonymity, but he figures whispering without showing his face will work well enough.]

Someone died today.

I guess... lots of people die everyday. And probably things wouldn't work very well if it never happened. I guess it's not really fair to only care... if you have to see it.

It's -- It's not very fair at all.

...Everyone did everything right. Sometimes, doctors or nurses make mistakes, and it can be really bad, but it's not usually the sort of mistake you can't fix, either. And... you have to understand that they're working so hard that they can't be perfect all the time, too. Sometimes... it just happens.

There weren't any mistakes today.

They've only let me work with patients for a few weeks. Not alone... But I -- I was the one who told him that everything would be OK. And I watched his Pokemon when they put him in surgery. And -- ...then they came to take them away from me and they didn't say anything, but... I saw the sheet.

And I said it was going to be OK and it wasn't.

[His voice trembles a little.]

It's not fair... that you can want something so much and you can do everything right and... and none of that matters because it just goes all wrong and that's... it. That's just it. Things are a certain way and... wanting and wishing and doing won't ever change it.


[Fourteen is a little early for an existential crisis, but here we are.]

[action, Residential District]
[Lucas's desired anonymity tonight is a little bit sabotaged by the fact that he's glowing like a lantern. In a small park in the middle of the residential district, a light shines steadily through the night, illuminating the surroundings with a gentle bluish cyan hue. Odd diamond shaped patterns run through the air and anyone who comes into contact with the blue light will feel a warm energy running through them.

At its center sits a boy, covered in the same patterns. He is hugging an Eevee close, and he sits staring at the Warp Band after he makes his call. Unbeknownst to him, his prodigious healing powers is slowly revitalizing some of the blooms half-killed by the frost, resulting in a rather strange display.

His psychic powers have always been powerful, but it will perhaps never be as incredible a display again as this, the moment he evolves.]

No one is strong from birth. You can only become strong... when put into a desperate situation. Even if you shake or cry, as long as you do not run, you will grow stronger and stronger.

If you didn't get strong, you wouldn't be able to help those in need...

Isn't that right?

That is why you promised: I must become strong.

That is why you have become who you are today...

[Hi Warp Band users, have a video of a Frosslass.

A Frosslass who, if you understand Pokéspeak, is chiding someone for being so foolish as to come all the way out here when he clearly can't.

Also it's outside on the mountain. What?]

Yes, Tiria, I get it. Give me my Warp Band back, please.

[Still chiding and telling him she's started a feed, she obeys. Martin comes into view--he's in a cave of sorts. He looks...pretty sick. Boar and his Misdreavus are off to the side, giving him Looks while a Swinub cuddles in Martin's lap.]

I...this is embarrassing, but I seem to have pushed myself too much and can't make it back to Union right now. I will be fine, but it may take me a few days to get back. [Boar starts in about how of course he pushed himself too far, he didn't even take a week off before going traveling, training non stop for a week, and hiking to the highest part of the mountain he could feasibly get to. Does he want to die twice?

Martin ignores him]

So...please, don't worry. I'll be fine.

[Scenario One]
[At last, he's managed to pop back into the Real World long enough to get some sleep... And of course, the dreams start right up like clockwork. As with many others, the first is a nightmare.

The scene is a burning forest at night. Clouds of smoke billow through the air, trees are hellishly crackling and disintegrating, and the occasional monstrous roar echoes through the night. There is a sense of grave danger... Though it's too dark to see, out in the night, there seems to be a faint silhouette of something enormous and monstrous... and two glinting lights as of eyes.

The scene is strange, though, like watching a film. It blurs suddenly, and focuses now on three people running as quickly as they can through the burning forest. A redheaded boy is in front; behind him is someone with an identical face but blonde hair, perhaps recognizable... There isn't much time to process the scene before the blonde boy trips and falls; he is quickly grabbed by a woman behind him in a red dress and pushed forward.]

Run, run!

[The two boys run. The scene lingers briefly on the woman as she halts... slowly grabbing a burning stick and turning around. But the 'camera' swings now to follow the boys. They run without speech. There is no time or energy to do anything but dash through the forest and pant breathlessly. Trees collapse around them; the fire licks at their heels, but still they run...

A scream suddenly echoes through the night, but it cuts off quickly.]


[The boy with red hair whirls around.]

Where's Mom?! She was right behind us!

I-I don't know...

Mom! Mom!

[With reckless abandon, the redheaded boy screams and runs backwards the way they had came. The other boy doesn't move, too frightened to do anything but collapse to his knees and scream.]

No - Claus! Claaaaaaaus!

[The scene of the forest suddenly freezes in place... before abruptly crumpling into nothing, leaving Lucas kneeling in an empty, pitch black void. His breathing is heavy and his eyes are brimming with tears as he stares down at his knees and continues to call.]

Claus...! Mom! Don't go...

They're gone. They're gone. It's all... because of me...

[Scenario Two]
[The second, in contrast, is pure bliss. A field of sunflowers stretches as far as the eye can see, bright and beautiful. The sky is cool blue, with the occasional perfect puffy cloud drifting by... It's almost too idyllic.

Laughter can be heard in the distance, with the occasional echoing voice.]

Claus! Don't run too far!

I just want to see the edge...! Lucas, are you coming?

[There is no response from Lucas. He is lying down in the middle of the field, facing up towards the sky with his arms crossed behind his head and a light smile on his face. Around him flicker the ghosts of three people... The woman with the brown hair is the most consistent, kneeling down beside Lucas or taking his head in her lap, though she, too, slowly fades whenever anyone comes near enough for Lucas to take notice.]


[It seems as if he is properly lucid in this dream, as he will greet anyone who appears.]

I did it!

[Today there is a small child looking proud of himself in the feed of the Warp Band. Lucas doesn't use this very often... Technology is still something he's a little bit wary of, but he's got something important to say today...]

Um. It's Lucas! Probably not many people remember... but a few months ago, I was talking about how we could make clothes for people who didn't have enough in the winter, right? Anyway, you were right; it just wouldn't be good enough as clothing.

So I've been learning to sew... And during the summer, I made friends with a Cottonee and a Mareep! We came up with a really good idea together!


[Lucas thrusts forward what seems to be some sort of abomination wool/cotton sweater with zigzagging green thread running all over. In the background, a partially shaved Mareep and Cottonee can be seen huddling together for warmth while a Leavanny yawns with an amused expression on its face.]

I call it... FuzzyFriends (TM)! The inside is lined with cotton and the outside is 100% wool! It keeps you so warm that I passed out the first time I wore it for longer than six hours! It takes about two weeks for the wool and cotton to grow back, so... I mean I won't be able to make a lot, but if anyone else has Pokemon like these, I bet we can make more! Right now, it's only --

[Lucas consults a calendar.]

...October 7th?!



Ah, so - t-this is the FuzzyFriends (TM) Fleece! And, um, the first person who doesn't have enough warm clothing can have it for free! So... feel free to ask...!

We'll... still be here. Working on a faster invention......

[It's been a few days since the swap. Roxas was a little older, a little taller, but all in all, Lucas was appreciative that he hadn't ended up in a really unusual body. He hadn't the least idea what he would do if he'd ended up as an adult, anyway.

It was a little uncomfortable at first, getting used to longer limbs and firmer muscles, but he felt ready to go out in public after a bit. There wasn't any sense keeping cooped up forever; who knew how long it would take for things to get back to normal? ...But it isn't until he's been out and about a few times that he realizes something. Nobody actually knows who's been swapped... This could be a good opportunity...]

Hi! ...I'm Roxas. It's a really nice day out, isn't it?

[And so Lucas runs up to just about everyone he sees with a bright smile.]

I thought you looked like you could use a drink!

[Offering them assistance or free food when it looks like they need help...]

Did you need any help?

[And generally being an overly friendly pest. In short, Lucas spends the entire week being as aggressively friendly to as many people he sees as possible. Whether they need help with groceries or pulling weeds or training Pokemon, Lucas!Roxas is there to lend a hand. ...Or give moral support, anyway.

Roxas had always seemed like he was a little lonely! He's 100% sure Roxas will thank him for making him all of these new friends!!! He'll just make a list of people he's talked to and pass it on to Roxas after this was all over; the plan is genius.

Nothing can possibly go wrong.]

[Now that all the confusion with Gigas was dealt with, Wukong had time to do what was ACTUALLY important. He went out into the wilderness around Caldera and got in fights with the local pokemon. He wasn't looking to capture, or to bond, or anything like that. He was just testing his strength against the locals. In a very good natured sort of way, of course.

A day or two later, he returned, with a black eye and covered in minor bruises and scrapes and made a video post.]

I have tested the mettle of the pokemon around Caldera, and they are indeed mighty fighters! Not as mighty as ME, of course, but they shall be worthy allies none the less.

So...I'ma just go back to Union and give them a chance to rest before I challenge them again.

[Action, Union Divine Theater]

There were some STRONG Pokemon around Caldera. Stronger than him, though he hadn't admitted it. He had actually lost most of the fights out there. So Wukong was taking a day or two off from doing much of anything at all. At this exact moment, Wukong was lying on top of the prop cage in the theater, backstage, napping.

Oh, everyone!

[Lucas doesn't usually make public calls, but he seems quite pleased with himself.]

I was thinking about something that someone had said the other day - about how there were still a lot of ways we could help improve Union. I thought about it, and I wasn't really sure what I could do by myself, but... Dozer evolved a few days ago, and I suddenly had a thought.

Do you remember last winter when a bunch of people were saying that they were feeling pretty chilly? Well, that was only the ones with Warp Bands, so there must be a lot more out there who could use warm clothing. And then Dozer evolved, and I remembered - Leavanny are famous for being able to make clothes, right?

So Dozer and I are going to do our best to sew as much as we can before this winter comes around. Like this!

[Lucas holds something up proudly to the Warp Band.

.......It is vaguely recognizable as clothing, shirts and pants, though only if you have a strong imagination. It doesn't really help that they're obviously made out of padded layers of chewed up leaves. In the background, a newly evolved Dozer yawns and lazily spits out some more thread that it proceeds to spin at random with its eyes firmly fixed out the window, which perhaps explains the quality of this work.]

If we make 5 sets a week, we'll have at least 100 by the time winter comes around again. It might not be enough for everyone who was feeling cold last year, but I think it should help. And there will be a lot more if other people with Leavanny can help, too.

[ When the black and white video clicks on there's Dick Grayson laying on his bed with some papers scattered around him. Homework? Random notes? It's hard to tell from here. There's also what seems to be an acrobat uniform and some flowers behind him on the desk chair and desk respectively. ]

So Union. What do you all think about this place? Or rather, what do you think about it from say ... a few months ago before those Earthquakes and those Team Evolution guys.

[ He frowns a little when he mentions them. He wasn't very fond of them nor what they did. But this isn't about them so he moves on. ]

And those Hot Springs! Pretty nice, huh? Though honestly, I feel like both are pretty underwhelming. I know we just discovered them but I feel like they could use some... decorations. Maybe some statues. Deefinitely a building nearby so we can easily change in and out. Just... don't disturb the Pokemon; it was their Hot Springs before we found it, after all.

[ A Growlithe jumps onto the bed and lays down next to him. He chuckles and gives the Puppy a scratch on the head before continuing. ]

As for Union ... well, the flowers that were here not last month were pretty overwhelming. I feel like this place has a problem just being whelmed. But whoever caused it had the right idea. There just shouldn't be so many.

I'm not saying Union needs more action because trust me, it doesn't. [ He sounds a little bitter there but he continues as if everything was all right. ] I just feel like it could use some decorating too. Spruce this place up a bit.

But decorations isn't the only thing this place needs. You know how the Swords are supposed to protect this city? Some of them are great [ He's talking about himself as Robin here excuse him ] at their job but some others [ cough ] like two redheads [ cough ] I feel like they need to get their act together.

You never know when something is going to happen right in front of your eyes and I feel like everyone, whether you're a Guard, Ranger, Sword, or none of the above, need to learn to get better prepared. That's all.

[ He nearly went back to sounding bitter near the end before he finishes off with his last two words. His Growlithe barks happily at the screen before he says his final words. ]

So what kind of improvements you think this place needs? Because I feel like I barely touched the surface of what's needed. Don't get me wrong: Union has been a good place to live. But it can be even better - and safer - for everyone.

[ And then after he re-positions himself on the bed he just shuts it off. Just like that. ]

[ Throughout the Afternoon Robin could be found at a field training with his Zubat and Murkrow. He seems to be pushing himself a lot today with little to no breaks. Feel free to come and bother him if you'd like. ]

It was just around this time, right? I think it's been... almost four years.

[Stick in hand, Lucas scratches a little bit in the dirt as he speaks to no one in particular. In an isolated corner in the residential district, hidden behind some confusing twists and turns, there is a small plot of earth with a few low shrubs and a bench. An isolated bit of green buried amongst the cement and steel. There stands now a single, fresh sunflower poking up above the dirt.]

I can't believe it's been so long. )

Hello, Union! My name is Blue, and I'm looking for a particular stone if anybody can help me out.

I know the nido lines evolve with the help of one, and I have a gorgeous nidorino I wanted to keep one for. If you know anything about where to find one or have one yourself you wouldn't mind parting with, I'd love to chat. I could offer money or maybe teaching a move or two to your pokémon... we can discuss the details together.

Annnyway - that's all, really. Thank you if you can help me out! And congratulations to those with newborns to care for after the spring fun some of the pokémon had.

( Of Note: Melaka has no reacted her first evolution. The visible changes acre actually fairly minor - her muscles are tighter and thicker, and her skin is tougher too. She's also got a thick natural leathery fingerless "glove" over her hand. Like how a lot of fighting types have biological "clothing?" same deal )

a) Melaka in Union Park! She's there, walking with Willow and the two babies, generally enjoying herself a little more. It's nice and bright out and... she's looking for Gunther. A little. But mostly it's just a nice walk and a nice picnic. Do you sit with her? Attract the attention to the cute babies? There are options here.

b) Towards Kurain Village! Melaka is en route there with Brownie. Brownie recently evolved and Melaka wanted to re-introduce Jinxie to him. That said, Brownie is a n overly violent idiot, and is trying to pick fights with everyone they can even begin to cross paths with along the way. Try to avoid this conflict, get caught up in it, try to make him more violent? Awkward.

c) Around town all over the place, Melaka is running her errands. This begins at Pokeco, but then quickly devolves into her looking around to see if she can find a better deal at smaller shops. In the course of these errands she is doing some parkour leaps and jumps to get around quicker, and Sneak is floating beside her. In the course of this, you might find Melaka consoling Sneak for the fact that she hasn't evolved and she shouldn't feel too bad for it sometimes people take longer. You also might run into Melaka despairing about her budget...

d) Which leads us to the final push: Melaka scouting out the Verdant Forest with Slugger and Lurks. She's not doing it super officially, but she is trying to map out a route which can allow people to safely travel between Union and the spot where Banzu is making that port. She hopes she can then get an expense pay for doing that, but it's mostly a side-job for now. Will you run into her? Will a swarm of pokemon descend on them and make things weird? Will they run into a randomly strong evolved pokemon? Who knows, you can join in.

e) The bonus round! There is no Melaka here, there is only Gunther. He's out and about and planning to live large in his newfound city life. Places to get drinks? People to impress? Small businesses he can create to get his hands on more candy? Maybe he can discover even more vices? Have adventures with him, either as a trainer or with your own character's pokemon! ]
