[The feed opens on Banzu standing with his back to the sea and a folding table with various items on it next to him.]
Good morning, everyone. I've got a few demonstrations for you. Over the past few weeks I've been working on a few different pieces of equipment, and I'm thinking that a few of you might be interested in some of them.[He picks up a metal canteen from the table, opens it, holds it upside-down, empties its contents completely, then closes it again.]
First off, this canteen refills itself with water whenever it's closed. It's not a limitless source of water, but it gave me all the drinking water I needed going from Union to Sanctuary on a single charge. [He opens it again and empties another canteen-full of water from it while he continues.]
Anyone who's been in the desert or on a long expedition should be able to appreciate how useful a compact source of water can be.[Closing the canteen and returning it to the table, he next holds up a somewhat wide and thick band of metal, which appears to be made of three arrows connecting tip to tail. He slides the bangle onto his wrist and taps the head of one of the arrows, then picks up a small berry from the table and eats it.]
Then there's this. It reproduces the move Recycle. [He taps the head of a different arrow and an identical berry to the one he just ate materializes in his hand.]
It only works on berries, just like normal, but the ability to extend a food supply in a pinch could come in handy.[He pops the new berry into his mouth, then returns the bangle to the table and picks up a green-tinted longsword.]
Next up. Facet? [A Carbink floats into view and uses Light Screen, Reflect, and Stealth Rock, setting up a rather intimidating-looking defense. Banzu holds out the sword with the point towards the Carbink and activates it. The sword pulses green and sword-shaped green lights fly out of it, spreading out as they fly and shattering the defenses that the Carbink created, while leaving the Pokémon itself unharmed. As the Carbink floats out of the frame, Banzu rotates the sword so that it's pointed at the sky and activates it again, causing it to glow brightly.]
Defog and Flash, for clearing away fog, defenses, and darkness. Since you should probably be carrying a weapon on an expedition anyways, there isn't even any extra weight. I'm calling it the "Sword of Revealing Light".
While I'm on the subject of weaponry, [He holds up an odd-looking handgun.]
I made this quite a while ago, but it seems like it's becoming more relevant lately. This is a Thunder Wave gun. So long as whatever you're shooting isn't immune to Electric moves, this'll paralyze it without causing any injuries. If we're gonna keep running into Gigas's forces like this, weapons like this'll make it easier to fight without the risk of accidentally killing anyone. Because that would be terrible. [His tone of voice is vaguely sarcastic there.]
And finally, something for defense. [He picks up a belt made of multiple metal plates linked together, with a large rectangular buckle. Donning it, he takes hold of one short edge of the buckle and pulls it to the other side like a double knife switch. A suit of armor forms around him, looking like a lightweight version of generic storybook Knight In Shining Armor armor, and when he speaks from behind the visor his voice echoes slightly.]
The Iron Defense belt. The armor design can be set when the belt is made, so if this isn't your style I can make it look different.[He throws the switch on the belt again and the armor vanishes.]
So if anything I've demonstrated here interests you, or you've got something else you'd like to have made, contact me over the Warp Bands, follow Route 1 from Union to the port, or head to The Prodigal Explorer
in Union's Business District, and I'll see what I can do for you.
