[For those of you paying attention to the Warp Bands, you will suddenly see a Leafeon, a Poliwhirl and an Abra all looking down at the screen. The Abra seems to be the one in control, despite the little cough it gives and the sniffle.]

Poli. Poli. Poliwhirl.

[All three as the sound of their Trainer talking starts up.]

No, I don't care what you think, Cotton. I'm not jealous.


[There's a bump and the sound of something dropping. Then, the soft sounds of the girl shushing an upset Bayleef.]

Okay, maybe. Just a little. [A long pause of sound and then the three Pokémon run from the screen before a brunette with green eyes shows up on the screen. Her green eyes get impossibly larger and her cheeks turn bright red before she shuts off the feed.]

[ Her voice is surprisingly level, reserved if not a bit detached. She refrains from turning on the video function for quite a few reasons. ]

I just received word from father. My brother, Garen, has gone missing. No one has seen him for weeks, since before the Enhanced incident. I recall him talking about doing some traveling outside of Union...

If anyone has seen him, or heard from him in the last few months, please, tell me. He's hard to miss. He's tall, stocky, has brown hair and is most often seen either in full armor or wearing either a Swords uniform or some kind of Crownguard insignia on his person.


[ There's a long, heavy pause as she tries to think of the words to say. ]

That is all. Thank you very much for your time.


Feliks, could I speak with you? If you have the time, of course.


[ Throughout the week, the young blond can be found in a bit of a fog around the city. Moving about her usual haunts--the library, the university, the Seekers headquarters--something seems off about her. She's jumpy, easily distracted, and generally a bit out of sorts. Half the time she doesn't seem to even look where she is going, and may be found bumping into others, or dropping things. ]

[Does Ami look different? A little more... blue, perhaps? Or as if there are ice crystals gleaming along soft strands of hair? Her Cyndaquil remains in her lap, his fire blazing bright to make sure she doesn't freeze anything.]

To all those involved, I would like to please inquire about the status of the pokedex? I know the situation with the Enhanced put many people's plans and duties on hold but now that things are finally getting settled, I feel it is best to inquire upon the situation. Please respond at your earliest convenience.

[Private to the Senshi]

It would seem that I've had my second evolution.

[Rei's Warp Band pops on today to show an exasperated looking priestess stalking away from the living quarters of Hikawa Shrine. It's a positively lethal look she's got going on, as if anything trying to stop her would probably wind up spontaneously combusting. And the reason for it becomes quite clear a moment later as a small green hand shifts the camera back to the house.

A Kanghaskhan stalks out, both her arms and her baby's laden with packs. Big, bulging backpacks and small shoulder ones stuffed to the gills. The big Pokemon lumbers after Rei, bellowing out irritable sounds that to Poke-Speakers will sound oddly like 'You can't just go off without your extra blankets! And don't you forget your hair-care stuff! And make sure to remember to bring enough clean clothes for a whole week, since you're not taking me so I can wash it for you!'

The camera pans back to Rei as she reaches the stairs to the shrine, where she's stopped to glare at the overly mothering Pokemon.]

Juno! I don't need all that! I can't carry half of it, and I've been traveling a lot longer than I've known you!

[More bellowing, this time indignant. Of course you do! And she knows that, but now that you've got her, she'll definitely have to mother you because Grandpapa Hino sure can't! Just...

And that? Sparks something in Rei. She stamps her foot and practically snarls, snatching one of the backpacks in exasperation.]

Fine! But you're not my moth- [The words die in her throat as she catches sight of the flashing Warp Band.] CERES!

[The Warp Band drops to the ground...]

Treecko! Tree!

[And scampering off across the courtyard goes the offending Pokemon, cackling to herself as Rei goes to grab the band.]

Sorry about that. Someone is going to get a lesson on Warp Band etiquette when I get back. [She glares back behind her at the retreating lizard.] If anyone needs me, I'll be on the southern island for the rest of the week. There won't be any fortune telling at Hikawa Shrine this week, unless my grandfather is feeling up to it.

[She grimaces at the thought...]

Though...only if you really need one.

Action: The Tropical Island

[Rei's pretty much down on the island all week with a small group of her Pokemon and Ami. It was something they'd planned, and something she really needed. The Enhanced had been a mess, and Rei was quickly finding herself overwhelmed with all the goings on around Union lately. And while Juno was nice, but she was stressful. And Ceres...that damn lizard...was so frustrating.

Yes, relaxation was definitely in order. And who better to do it with than someone else who also needed that rest and relaxation?

She'll welcome people coming to say hi, too. She just really, really needed a vacation...]

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!]

[If one is passing by the Council Hall, they will notice an adorable and pampered-looking Eevee standing on the steps. She is wearing a cute pink collar with the name of "HIME" emblazoned upon it, a bow sitting proudly behind her little head. When you get closer to her, she turns her big, soulful eyes on you and makes the most pathetic sounds.

If her coat wasn't so shiny and luxurious, you'd swear she was starving. But, really, feed her anyway.

Or, you know, try to find her trainer. Either one.]

Uh, to everyone who ran into my Eevee, Hime, earlier, I'm sorry. She ran away while I was at school. If she conned food out of you, I can pay you back. And if she did something else, [Makoto sighs, knowing what trouble the adorable little Pokémon could get into] let me know and I'll pay you back for any damages.

Hello everyone! I hope you had a good new year. Hopefully this year will bring more good things to us and our neighbors. Last year was certainly exciting, and I get the feeling that this year will prove even more so.

On that, I have something of an announcement. I've been working on a project for quite some time now, and while I haven't been able to talk about it at length before, I'm finally allowed to speak a bit on it. I'm actually fairly excited.

Back in the summer, the Seekers chapters in Union and Caldera began doing research into a piece of technology known as a Pokédex. In old times, it acted as a portable compendium for pokémon, able to identity different species and dispense information on the fly. We were able to uncover some schematics and parts from the Old City, and since then have been working night and day to see if we could replicate this device in some way, shape or form.

Until recently, we were stumped. We could compile the information and place it into a database, but we couldn't figure out how to make it portable. However, after speaking with the elders at Refuge, we were able to uncover quite a few interesting parts. With these, we believe we'll be able to make something usable soon!

This is a call to any interested engineering types and delvers. We need a bit of help for the final push, to help figure out how to combine the database with the warp band's interface, and to either go through or retrieve more parts. We are also in need of those willing to help gather and compile information about various species of pokémon for the project.

While I'm certainly not the only one working on this, if you are interested, please let me know so that I can direct you to where you need to go. Thank you everyone and have a great new year!


[The message is the same, but is sent separately to Lenna and Natalia.]

Hey, when are you available next? I wanted to talk about a few things.


[To say that she was thoroughly and completely over her head was a bit of an understatement.

Walking around the business district, Lux focused on the more fashionable shops and boutiques. This was more Camille's domain, but the blond mentioned wanting to take care of things by herself; it was probably a bit mistake. She didn't know the first thing about being fashionable, outside of a few very basic rules that her Dragonite taught her. Even then, those were very skewed, and more often than not Camille had a taste for the dramatic.

Sure, every girl envisioned what her dream wedding might look like, and Lux was no different--even with her previous circumstances. But the individual pieces were never solid in her mind, and sending her out to find what she wanted was overwhelming to say the least. She could see a small benefit in letting her family plan the whole thing.

Staring through the shop window at some extravagant dress that likely weighed more than she did, she let out a long sigh. This was harder than she thought.]

I think I need a break...

[There's snow on the ground. It's cold. Makoto is not dressed for this weather. Cotton, her loyal Mareep, is at her side as they trudge through the snow back in the direction of where they both think Union City is.]


[She looks over at the Pokémon and sighs deeply.]

I don't know, Cotton. It was a lot warmer when we went out.


[Makoto laughs as she sees the walls that surround the city and she begins to run towards them.]

Last one home has to shovel the walkway!


[As she and Cotton run through the streets of the city–dirty, tired and hungry the both of them–their laughter and teasing carry before them. She considers dropping by Rei's shrine to check in, but she really wants a warm bath, a hot meal, and to curl up in bed. Once she's settled, maybe she'll contact her friends. No, scratch that, she will contact them. Just... not this second.]


Um, I've been out of the city for a while now. [Understatement.] Did Salvation Day already pass?

[Private Video to the Senshi]

Um, I don't know where I've been, but it looks like a lot of time has passed. But, I'm back now and at home. Did I miss anything important?

Who: The Sailor Senshi and Pokemon
What: A Hatching Party
Where: Hikawa Shrine
When: 12/27
Warnings: Obligatory warning that Haruka/Michiru are in the same room together.

Today was the day they'd all waited for, and it's early in the morning when Rei notices that the eggs Ophir had been watching over for the last week were starting to shake and rattle like a hatching was going to happen. The call went out a little later, inviting all the other girls over to watch. Food was set up, and she'd encouraged Eiji to make sure Ankh was elsewhere so that he wouldn't just show up and be...himself. The hatching is nigh!

Warnings: You've got the usual senshi shenanigans with a dash of the Body Swap event mixed in. Sounds like a hilarious episode, doesn't it?

This is how we do )

[The image comes on and Minako's a lot happier than she seemed a little while ago with the egg in her backpack. That's because she's been playing with a baby Pokémon all week since the egg in question hatched, and it's been way more exciting than she thought it would be!]

Hey, everyone! I have an announcement to make!

[She holds up an almost week old Eevee for everyone to see.]

It's a boy!

[The Eevee looked just as excited and wiggled his forepaws at the video feed like he was waving.]


[She giggled, getting some happy trills from the little Eevee before holding him back against her chest.]

His name is Eros and he's looking forward to meeting people!

[With that, she reached forward and turned off the feed.]
faithfulflame: (Rei Kimono)

[Today, Rei is just all around Union, keeping quite busy! She moves from shop to shop, clearly gathering up supplies for what appears to be a trip. A camping shop is first on the list, and she walks out after only a few minutes, a large bundle strapped to her back. Immediately after that comes several clothing shops, where she spends quite a bit of time perusing rack after rack.

Unfortunately, what she's looking for isn't exactly in high demand, and most of her search turns up empty. That's a little frustrating, and after a few hours she eventually gives up on that particular gathering expedition for the moment and heads to a quiet little restaurant. She's there for at least an hour, sipping tea and sitting with a Gardevoir and a Murkrow, scribbling into a notebook. Occasionally, she nods to the Pokemon, thanking them for a tidbits of information.

After lunch, though, her hard work eventually pays off when she finds a shop that has what she needs. It's a bit of effort, but when she leaves a thrift shop, both Gardevoir and suddenly Kingler are helping carry bags.]

[Once back home, Rei flips on the Warp Band and sets up a video. She's seated outside a traditional looking shrine, a red gate clearly visible in the backdrop, looking every inch the noble shrine-maiden. Beside her is the Gardevoir from earlier, and on each shoulder is a Murkrow, all three Pokemon peering at the camera.]

I think that I'm going to be leaving Union for a few days, and I wanted to ask for some advice from more experienced trainers. If I was going into the mountains, what sorts of weather should I expect this time of year? I don't want to end up freezing if I don't bring enough warm clothes, and I don't want to end up roasting if it's warmer than I expect.

Also, if there's an Engineer out there who's willing, I'd be interested in acquiring a Good Rod, and I'm more than capable of paying for the service.

[Money is the one thing she's willing to accept from her estranged papa, and the one thing he's capable of granting, after all.]

Thank you for your time.

[And with that, she clicks off the video, and sends out a private message to a small group of people.]

Filtered to the Inner Senshi )

[And for the remainder of the week, and into early next week, Rei can be found freely in the mountains to the east, if you'd prefer to find her there.]

[ Suddenly, there's a video feed that pops up on the network, and it's Usagi. This wouldn't be so bad if she didn't look a little dirty... and... in rather dim light? Those aren't the ruins of the Old City behind her, is it? ]

.... um. uh. So, if someone were to accidentally get lost in the Old City, hypothetically speaking, how would they get back? [ She doesn't realize that she's not on audio and is, in fact, on video. So, her little... lie... is already unveiled before she could ever begin. ] I-I mean, just for future reference! No reason at all!

It's another lovely summer day! It's later in summer now and as the excitement from the previous weeks die down, another sign goes up in the local park...

Pokémingle!! Back by popular demand!

It's an open event for Pokémon of any kind! Play games, walk together, and relax in the sun! Trainers, let your Pokémon take the day off! Let's make Pokéfriends!! (^_^)

((Pokémingle returns! While the base premise is that it's a relaxing day at a park, feel free to respond with other top-level comments with what else your Pokémon might be doing around Union. No real rules about top-level threads, so if you want to include all of your Pokémon in one thread or do separate ones for a few Pokémon, go ahead. (Try not to make top-levels for 15 different Pokémon though if possible.) No trainers allowed!! Or at least, minimal trainer interference!

Let's make PokéCR!! ^_^ ))

[As the people of Union begin to move out into the plains, they'll find that the Councilor's warnings were apt. Though not everyone is targeted, it isn't long before a few unlucky travelers find themselves on the receiving end of the same type of attack. The bandits, whoever they might be, are experts at swooping out of the blue, striking so swiftly that the victims almost never even catch a glimpse of them.

How exactly will they put this to a stop? There's so many, it seems impossible to take them out one group at a time... Perhaps they have a base somewhere.]

((This post is for both groups who wish for mods to run and players to thread freely amongst themselves. You may feel free to handwave having been attacked and thread the aftermath of that event. Please respond to the appropriate section depending on where your character is. Thanks!))
