    André Bellamy
    Lumiose City; Boutique Couture > Café Soleil
    Party: (Jolie)


    "C'est fantastique!" André exclaimed as he entered the city with Jolie the Clefairy walking by his side. He was glad to be back home in Lumiose City. Unova was nice and all, but nothing would ever compare to his hometown. Especially at night, when all the lights were turned on. Everything literally sparkled. André whistled and hailed a taxi. Once he got in, the driver recognized who he was, and complimented him on his sense of style. That was the other the other thing he liked about Lumiose, everyone had good taste in fashion.

    Today was the start of André's journey. He had no intention of doing this alone. Sure, he had Jolie, and a bunch of servants at his beck and call, but it would be nice to have some humans his own age to become friends with. He had his people send out letters to other teenagers his age who were also starting their journeys, and told them they had won a contest to travel with him. It was a great idea, he thought. Who wouldn't want to travel around the region with a famous Movie Star like him? He was going to be meeting his travel companions today, and André was excited to get to know them. First though, he had something else he wanted to do.

    There was one thing André always did whenever he came to a big city. Even when working on film sets, he made a point to go shopping. The Taxi pulled up in front of a large boutique with the sign Boutique Couture in front of it. André paid the fare, and stepped out. You could see the inside from all the windows, and the place was well decorated and well stocked. Whenever he went to a fashionable city, he just had to go shopping. After all, he had the money to spend, and one could never have enough nice things. Especially since he was back home in Lumiose, the most fashionable city in the world. Because he was in Lumiose, he got a discount on everything. Just for being himself. Of course, he had enough money to pay the full price for things, but it was still a nice perk. Immediately after finding the store, André raced inside to check out their wares.

    Some time later, André came out carrying several shopping bags filled with a bunch of items André just had to have. Fancy clothes, new jewelry, some perfume, adorable plushies he somehow didn't already own, he even found some things for Jolie. Including a new supply of Pokepuffs, one of which the Clefairy was happily munching on. "Well, that was fun, non?" André asked Jolie, with his signature smile. His perfectly white teeth practically sparkled.

    "Clefairy!" Jolie cheered happily.

    André hailed the taxi again, and had it take him to one of his favorite Cafe's, Café Soleil. The place was known for Movie Stars patronizing it. It was the placed André had told his new travelling companions to meet up with him. It didn't take very long before people began to notice the pink clad young man with the Clefairy by his side. Word got around fast that famous Movie Star André Bellamy was in town. Once he arrived at the cafe, and stepped out of the taxi, It took even less time before André and Jolie were surrounded by screaming teenage girls, (and some guys) clamouring to get the young movie star's autograph, and have their picture taken with him. Something André was more than happy to do for his adoring fans.

    After André was finally finished with his fans, he took a seat the table outside. A barista immediately came out and brought him his favorite drink. Meanwhile, the crowd of fans were still there, gawking.

    Michael Sky
    Lumiose City; Cafe Le Wow --> Cafe Soleil
    Party: (Hannah)


    "Um, Hannah. I think you were right the first time. I guess it was Cafe Soleil after all." The exasperated Aipom on the gaudy looking young man's shoulder didn't even bother to say the Pokemon equivalent of "I told you so." Her young master had spent the past four hours returning to Cafe Le Wow, each time forgetting that he had been wrong and coming back to the same spot over and over again. The patrons of the three star restaurant remembered him, however, and were staring at Michael and Hannah. Hannah was so embarrassed. Finally, the waiter came over to them.

    "Excuse me, uh... sir?" Michael was used to people not being sure whether he was a girl or a boy. It came with the face. What he didn't know is that this was the fifth time that day that the waiter had spoken to him. "Sir. I think you've come to the wrong place again. Would you like me to call a taxi to take you to Cafe Soleil? You mentioned going there last time that you were here." Michael was confused. "Last time?-" but before he could finish, Hannah slapped him on the back of the head with her tail. The waiter chuckled. "I guess you forgot again, huh? Well, your Aipom seems to know what she's doing, so let's do just that, what do you think, sir?" Michael started to speak, but flinched when he saw Hannah's death stare out of the corner of his eye, so he changed course. "That sounds positively fabulous, thank you!"

    ---

    As the taxi pulled up at Cafe Soleil, Michael saw a huge crowd of teenagers. He shook his head and muttered, "what's all this about?" Hannah facepalmed with her tail and took out the invitation letter. She got Michael's attention and pointed at the name on the letter. Andre Bellamy. Michael thought for a moment. Now where have I heard that - oh. whoops. A movie actor! Of course he would come complete with his own entourage! This... this might be problematic.

    Michael had gotten the letter on a quiet day in his hometown of Canalave City. He was reading inside, a regular activity for Michael, as his mother and Hannah bugged him about going outside and battling. Michael was indifferent, engrossed in reading about historic Pokemon League Champions, a subject that he had read for the twenty-seventh time that day. His father came in with the letter and asked if Michael was interested. Michael initially said no, but when he saw that his usually contrary parents had agreed to sign him up for this, Michael had relented. And now he was about to meet a movie star? Already he was having second thoughts. That's what Hannah was for, though, making decisions when Michael couldn't. If it weren't for her, Michael would have turned back on eighteen different occasions already. As it stood, Michael was not about to turn back when he was so close to finally starting an adventure, a prospect that even he admitted he was excited about.

    Michael paid the taxi driver with the money that his parents had given him as an advance on his allowance in preparation for the trip. As he exited the car, he got some stares from stragglers in the crowd, whose eyes were drawn to his multi-colored attire and distinctive hair color. Michael calmly smiled and waved at them as he brushed through the crowd. As he pushed through, the crowd began to part, shocked by Michael's fascinating look. Ignoring them, he got through to the table where a young man in an outfit nearly as loud as Michael's own was sipping a drink with a Clefairy. Michael tossed his hair, stuck out his hand to shake, and said, "Andre Bellamy, I assume?"

    ^Sworn Metalhead made that and is pretty cool^ (Also, click for PASBL squad)

    Solaris Hernandez
    Lumiose City -> Café Soleil, Lumiose
    Party: (X)


    Solaris stepped out the door. She looked up and could see the sun was out today, but it wasn't too hot thanks to the clouds. She strapped on her duffelbag before looking to the ground. X was standing beside her, with an expectant but patient expression. Solaris smiled, bent her knees a little and extended her arm. X also smiled then promptly climbed up her arm and to the top of her head. With her Riolu ready, she turned back to the door and saw her adoptive family there.

    "You're sure you'll be fine?" she said.

    Her brother chuckled and said, "Yes, I will. Mother and father as well."

    She could see the amused looks on their faces, making her grin brighter.

    "I'll let you guys know when I'm in the next town, all right?" She went near her brother and gave him a hug, then her mother then her father. She then went down the street and waved at them. "Bye guys!"

    They waved to her as well. After they were gone from her sight, she put her arm down. She stared back at where her house used to be in her sight for awhile, then faced forward.

    "Ah yeah! We're going to Café Sol-uh...something, meet with the others and start our journey!" She felt X nod.

    As worried as she was for her brother's health, even though he's already said he'll be fine, she was as equally excited in this venture. She didn't really know much of the actor André, other than he's a Kalosian and thus very popular in the region, but she most likely saw one of his movies. Maybe. The only movies she ever really paid attention to who acted the roles were the animated movies, both 2D and 3D. But she thought it might be cool to talk with a celebrity, she just hoped he wasn't one of those celebrities that had the fame get into their head.

    "Could you get the Town Map from my bag?" she said to X.

    She felt him nod again before he hung himself from her shoulder as he looked. She kept walking as he did that, eventually found it and returned to his spot on her head.

    "Thanks, bud," she said when he handed him the Town Map.

    She turned the device on and, as expected, a map of Kalos popped up. With a few button presses, the screen zoomed into Lumiose City. A few more presses then made it focus on a specific part of the city. The café called, well, Café Soleil. She still had trouble with pronouncing some of the French names. Why were there so many silent letters? The café wasn't too far from her home. It was in the next street, and that was all she needed to know. She gave the Town Map back to X who then put it back in her duffelbag. After closing it, he returned to his spot and Solaris held her bag's straps.

    "Wanna ride the taxi, or just walk there?"

    The jackal hummed in thought before pointing onward. "Rio!"

    "Walking it is then!" she said very cheerfully. "Didn't really wanna ride the taxi anyway."

    ...

    She was pretty sure she was coming up on the café, even if she didn't see the sign. There was a gathering of girls and a few guys around the place and she could give a good guess on why. She shouldn't have been surprised, but still, that was a lot of people. She hoped she could pass through them, she had heard of the difficulty in going through crowds.

    "Excuse me, coming through," she said.

    Surprisingly, the crowd parted, why, she wasn't sure. She had been told her height can be intimidating sometimes. She was usually sad about that, but for once, if that was the reason, she was glad it made them less clustered. She made it through and indeed saw a very brightly clothed male sitting at a table outside the café. That was probably André. There was also someone else with him. Maybe that was the other invitee.

    She went over to the table and said, "André, right?" She took out a piece of paper from her pocket and showed it to him. "I'm one of the people who got this."

    She returned it into her pocket just as X tapped her head.

    She looked up at him. "Something up?"

    The Riolu gestured his head to their side and Solaris glanced there. Some of the people behind her were looking at her, somehad their mouths gaping slightly, others...were glaring at her. Oh no. She forgot how obsessedfans could be over actors, to creepy levels at times. The ones that had their mouth open must have heard about the contest and were shocked that she, of all girls, was with André. The ones glaring at her might've too, and hated the thought that someone other than them.

    She looked back at André, skillfully hiding her fear of one of those girls viciously attacking her.* To get that out of her thoughts, she said, "Name's Solaris. Solaris Hernandez."

    Luna Ashfeld
    Lumiose City; Estival Avenue.
    Party: (Valencia)


    Luna was distinctly uncomfortable in Lumiose City. For one, it was filled to the brim with people, being the capital of Kalos. Second, something about it’s circular shape bothered her, for reasons she did not know. Everywhere she walked, she could feel eyes on her, and she hated that type of feeling, which was why she immediately took a turn to the left, into a small alleyway, when she saw the crowd of people gathering in front of her. As she made her way deeper into the alley, it became clear that it was a dead end. But dead ends were fine - it meant that fewer people would go into the alleyway in the first place. After taking in her surroundings - there wasn’t much to take in, just walls, ground, and no people - she sat down, leaned back against the walls, and fished out the letter she had in her left pocket, the letter that had gotten her to this god-forsaken place.

    She read through it once again, making sure that she was in the right place. She had known that André, who had invited her, was a famous movie star of the everyone-loves and loves-everyone variety, so it was no accident that people would gather around him. The letter had said to meet at Café Soleil, which was just down the avenue she had hurriedly left. Now that she thought about it, the crowd of people gathered in front of what was presumably Café Soleil (she didn’t have a map, and found her way here by following signs and occasionally people), had all been screaming something. They were probably fans of the movie star, who was probably already there, greeting them and waiting for his ‘guests’ to arrive. Just thinking that she’d have to deal with that type of attention for what was probably a good year or so gave her a headache.

    Anyways, she thought, that can wait. After all, André was probably preoccupied with signing autographs and taking pictures, and wouldn’t need her company. She’d stay here, in this alley, until all the commotion died down, and everyone else the guy had invited showed up. Preferably, if she timed it right, they’d just be finishing up their introductions and getting comfortable with each other, and she’d be able to slip in relatively unnoticed. That, however, was probably not likely to happen. Just as these thoughts finished running themselves through her head, she heard a loud cheer erupt in the general direction of the Café. Presumably, it was the arrival of another one of the teenagers who supposedly won some competition. She knew for a fact that she never entered any competition of that sort, and something made her doubt that any of the other teens had entered any such competition. She put that thought to the back of her mind - she was here anyways, so it didn’t matter.

    Luna sighed, sorting out her thoughts while enjoying the solitude the small alleyway offered. Anything else could wait. She had already decided that she was staying here until the commotion died down, and nothing was going to change her mind. She pulled her hood forwards a bit, to block out the sun, and decided to take a catnap. Judging by the number and enthusiasm of the fans, it’d be at least a half-hour before the Café was calm enough to enter.

    Jessalyn MacDougall
    Lumiose City; Back Alley -> Cafe Soleil
    Party: (Raoul)


    Jessie wordlessly shoved the money in the pocket of her black sleeveless hoodie as she turned away from the man who had thought he could get away without paying up. All it took was a couple of punches to the eye, and some serious threatening before the man was on his knees, surrendering. Just like any other Kalosian, the dark-haired girl smirked as she lifted the cigarette wedged between her lips and puffed out a cloud of smoke before placing it back in her mouth. Having lived in a tiny run-down apartment right in the middle of in the seediest part of Goldenrod for two years; and as of late, in yet another small, cheap apartment in what most thought to be the bad side of Laverre, not to mention all the things she partook in and even enjoyed, Jessie was no stranger to danger and taking risks. A man who evidently had more money than she did and half a foot on her? She knew and experienced much, much worse things than people who were too chicken to admit that they lost.

    Anatole Dejardin, the flowing script spelled in metallic ink, right in the middle of the fancy, pink envelope that the dark-haired girl pulled out from her other pocket. She knew well enough that the name wasn't her own, but it was the least of her concerns. If her friends were right about the actor Andre Bellamy, he wasn't the type to fuss over such minor technicalities, especially not when she did fall within the age range anyway, albeit by a nose. It wasn't as if she had many options, not when she saw the Team Rocket broadcast two days ago. Erik knows, she realized back then, and she felt that familiar anger rise within her as she forced herself to watch the man with the face of a monster, whom her father promised would be her protector, yet ended up being the monster; the man who had taken care of her, yet also took advantage of her. And the freedom that she paid a high price for? All she wanted was to go on her own journey, on her own terms, without anyone breathing over her neck or forcing her into things she did not want, yet her luck turned against her once more. The last thing she wanted to do, however, was to run and give Erik satisfaction. Once was enough, and that was only to make sure Erik wasn't going to use her as leverage to hunt Alastair down.

    "What do I have to lose anyway?" She sighed aloud as she exited the back alley and crossed her arms as she leaned against a wall. Never had she considered traveling with companions. She knew that it was better to be alone, and that there were things better done alone - a Pokemon journey being one of them - yet against her better nature, she decided to go along with the prize she had extorted. It was either get captured eventually, run away or try to see if there was any benefit in traveling with companions. Running was out of the question, she was neither weak nor a coward...and she'd sooner die or kill Erik than let him win. As pink and flamboyant the actor was, she was too sure that of course, he wasn't anything like the Admin, and Patrick had somehow managed to make her lose a card game for once just the night before, the terms being that she accept the invitation. She accepted in the end, something she did reluctantly. Even now, she had her reservations.

    "Houunndour! Hound!" Raoul barked, running in circles around Jessie's feet as he used his head to gesture towards an approaching cab. The tiny pup was apparently onboard with the idea, unlike her. She toyed with her cigarette, knowing that she could easily not show up and just head back to Laverre. It was easier, and she didn't have to deal with the possibility of having to deal with an overbearing, high-maintenance actor, as well as people whom she probably wouldn't like. The cab stopped in front of her, and she thought for a moment, before grunting and pushing her back away from the wall, bending down and scooping her Houndour.

    "You win, boy," she murmured as she stepped towards the waiting car, dropping her cigarette butt and crushing it with her combat boot before she entered. Jessalyn MacDougall was many things: moody, pessimistic, a criminal, a girl with a bad reputation, and many more...but coward wasn't among them. She wasn't going to run away from anything. Never again.

    -------

    Jessie did not have to look twice at what cafe the driver stopped at. The crowd of noisy fans outside gave the location away as Cafe Soleil, her destination. She paid up with some of the money she won from hustling earlier before hopping down with Raoul held firmly in the crook of her left arm, and the invitation in hand. She knew that such a small Pokemon could easily get trampled on in a crowd that cared more about getting a glimpse of a particular pink-obsessed actor, and frankly, she did not want Raoul, strong as he was, to fall victim to some mad fans.

    Most people subscribed to crowd courtesy, but the green-eyed girl wasn't one of them. Rather than wait in line and waste her time, she jostled her way in, eliciting angry protests from some of the more rabid fangirls.

    "Wait your turn, jerk!" One of them yelled. Jessie turned around and flipped the bird at the offender.

    "Well I don't give a damn, cunt!" She shouted back, before turning around and pushing a heavyset man out of the way.

    "Hey!" Jessie paid no attention, however. As long as she had the invitation on hand, whether it had her name or not, she didn't have to suck up to them. It didn't take long before she reached a table that seated a familiar blond man dressed in shades of pink and red, a Clefairy by his side. Surrounding him were a few other people, holding similar invites. She held hers up and quirked a brow. Immediately, several pairs of eyes focused on her, most of them giving her hard stares and glares. She probably knew what was on those people's minds. A girl, and one who wasn't any of them, one who could have come from the seedy part of any city, had been chosen. She wasn't fazed, however. It wasn't as if they could do anything. She stepped forward and dropped the envelope on the table, placing her fingers on top of it and sliding it towards Andre.

    "The name's...not Anatole. Guy was a pussy with no balls," she spoke, before introducing herself. "It's Jessalyn…Jessie."

    (OOC: Could someone bring Luna over here? I'd do it, but André is busy with his adoring fans. xD

    Also, I find it hilarious that André does not say a word of English in this entire post. )

    André Bellamy
    Lumiose City; Café Soleil
    Party: (Jolie)


    It wasn't long before more people started to arrive. First, there was a cute, colorfully dressed boy with blue hair who was accompanied by an Aipom. André appreciated his sense of style, and had to admire him for having the courage to dye his hair such a bold color. André had wanted to dye his hair pink in the past, or at least get highlights put in. He could never be bothered with the maintenance that required, and his normal hairstyle was much more versatile. He much preferred wearing wigs when he wanted to try out a new hairstyle anyway. The boy stuck out his hand, and asked "Andre Bellamy, I assume?"

    André happily took the boy's hand, shook it, then gave him the same greeting he gave to nearly everyone else, a kiss on both cheeks. This prompted a giggle from some of the people watching. Even though he dressed like someone from Lumiose, André could tell this guy wasn't from Kalos. He was aware foreigners, especially males, did not always react well to André's way of greeting people, but he didn't really care. he always found their reactions funny. "Trčs heureux!" André exclaimed as he handed the boy a pink rose.

    The next person to approach André was a all blonde girl who had a Riolu. She wasn't as fancily dressed as himself or the other boy who had come before, but that's what happened when you send the invitations out randomly. She would have to get a makeover at some point. "André, right?" She took out a piece of paper from her pocket and showed it to him. "I'm one of the people who got this. Name's Solaris. Solaris Hernandez." At this point a few of his fans standing nearby were glaring at her. Word about this contest André was holding had traveled very quickly. It was unfortunate that everyone who wanted to come could, but that was the game you played when you invited random people.

    "Bonjour." André greeted as he gave her a kiss on both cheeks too, and handed her a pink rose as well.

    After that, there was a lot of commotion coming from the crowd. A girl dressed in all black, and carrying a small Houndour in her arms shoved her way through the crowd to get to the table André was sitting at, and slid her invitation onto the table. The invitation had a name on it written in metallic ink. "The name's...not Anatole. Guy was a pussy with no balls," the girl explained, before introducing herself. "It's Jessalyn…Jessie."

    André shrugged his shoulders. He didn't bother questioning who the name written on the envelope belonged to. It was probably someone who didn't want it anyway. Oh well, it was their loss.

    The people in the crowd were starting to get nervous, and were murmuring amongst themselves. Most likely, they were concerned that this girl might be some sort of criminal. Some of them were begging André to do something.

    André wasn't worried though. He gestured for the crowd to calm down. Then, he leaned in to greet her the same way he normally does, but flinched when he smelled the scent of cigarette smoke. André made a disgusted face, then reached into one of his shopping bags, and pulled out an expensive looking bottle of Kalosian cologne, and sprayed a few puffs in Jessie's face. "Beaucoup mieux!" This prompted giggles from the people in the crowd. Even Jolie burst out laughing. After the smell of cigarette smoke was covered up, then he gave her his usual kiss on both cheeks, and placed the pink rose behind her ear. The girl's outfit could use some color.

    Katherine Lascelles
    Laverre City -> Lumiose City
    Affected RP'er's: Not sure yet


    Katherine started the day as she knew best: After having spent way too many hours in front of the mirror, she had her agent book her a limousine to take her to her destination in Lumiose City. Sure, she had been there before, but she wanted to arrive in style. She was, after all, going to meet with the one and only Andre Bellamy. she knew who he was, of course, though she wasn't really a fan of his works. She knew he was probably the most flamboyant guy in all of Kalos, and she knew with herself that she would love his company, which was why she had decided totake him up on the invitation in the first place. Persephone also seemed to be eager to get some sort of new continuity in her daily life. It hadn't been easy. Laverre City was holding some huge campain for Valerie's newest collection, and Katherine kind of had a big part in all of that, but being as bored of her life as bored can be, she did not hesitate to say Goodbye to all that in order to actually do something she wanted to do. her grandmother had a too tight grip on her life as it was anyway, and her parents weren't around. Sitting in the limo, she giggled to herself as she thought of her parents reaction to finding out she wasn't home once they returned from their work-related journeys. It wasn't as if she didn't care about them, but Katherine had her own agenda to follow, and had a bad habit of not letting people know when she just ran off.

    The ride took a few hours, in which she did some googleing on her phone in order to know just what she was up against. Sure, she knew the name Andre Bellamy, but she did not wanna suck up to him. the whole ordeal reminded her of some weird Paris Hilton Tv-show where she seeked out a new Bff through a competetive arena. Though the scenario was similar, the premises of this scenario was better, as Katherine had always wanted to pursue a Pokemon trainer career. Though this was entirely impulsive, and she had little to no knowledge of the concepts of battles, capturing Pokemon etc. Persephone had more or less handed herself over after the "grousome" event that took place a few years prior. She laughed at the memory, which Persephone replied with her own sinister chuckle. After this, both of the two stared out the windows of the limo in their own weird thoughts.

    The Limo ride was odd; Katherine had not driven the route before, but somehow, they did end up in Lumiose City. Once they were i the city, Katherine exited the limo to walk the rest of the way. she did enjoy the occasional stroll throughout the city; being able to witness the lively nature of the city. If she as not mistaken, she was supposed to meet Andre and the others at Café Soleil. She had been there before. A lovely atmosphere. But with all the cafčs in Lumiose, it was really easy to get lost. She did, however, eventually find her way to the designated place, after having shopped for a few cute outfits she just couldn't leave alone on the way there. Lumiose City was the center of Fashion after all.

    As she came closer to the cafč, she noticed an abnormal large crowd of people standing outside, gawking through the windows. It didn't take too much brain to figure out they weren't there for her. Sure, she was a model, but nobody paid attention to models anyways, everything was in the hands of actors or musicians. she didn't mind it though. though she did like to squeeze the sweet juice of fame out of whatever lemon she came across, it was better to walk un-noticed.

    However, as she was preparing herself to bulldoze through the crowd, she noticed a figure in an alley not too far from the cafč. They looked like a girl, but it as difficult to tell with the big cosplay-ish hood she was wearing. Sensing the urge to be friendly, she walked over to her, while Persephone kept her distance in case it was some sort of setup. It appeared it wasn't, and the girls seemed rather oblivious to her approaching. "Hey, you okay there?" Katherine asked hesitantly as she approached. The girl didn't seem to notice, but it seemed like she was hiding from something. Based on the giganormous horde of people utside the cafč, it wasn't too difficult to pinpoint this girls situation. "You're one of the peolpe recieving an invitation from that Andre guy, aren't you." she asked, trying to sound concerned, yet inspiring at the same time. "I take it crowds aren't your cup of tea, non? I have on of those fancy pink letters myself." she continued, showing off her invitation, hoping to God she wasn't making a fool of herself. Sure, her perception was admirable, but it was far from flawless. "If you want clear passage to the Cafč, just stay close behind me, and I'll clear the way", she said with a warm, genuine smile.

    Katherine didn't really bother to check if the girl was following her or not, and walked towards the crowd of people. Persephone entered first as some sort of weird entrance to make people step away as Katherine followed in her well-mannered, feminine and up-tight walk as her grandmother had taught her way too many times. She did hear whispers from the crowd mentioning her name, probaby people who somehow remembered her from the latest Laverre Fashion show. She didn't bother, and kept going towards the cafč entrance.

    Once inside, she quickly saw where Andre was stationed. She had seen him before in roles, and was surprised by how feminine he looked in casual. Totally not the hunk of an actor she had fallen in love with in the movie, "How to train your Hydreigon". Though she did feel a little bit star-struck, she kept her cool as she entered. she did her trademark brush through her golden blonde hair before introducing herself. "My name is Katherine. I take it you'er Mr. Bellamy, Who sent me this letter, non?"

    Luna Ashfeld
    Lumiose City; Café Soleil.
    Party: (Valencia)


    Luna was awoken from her short nap by the sound of someone speaking. As she blinked the sleep away from her eyes - she didn’t want to reach up and wipe them, because that would tell the girl that she was awake, something she wasn’t sure she wanted to do yet. After all, the hood hid her face quite well, and she was sure the girl couldn’t see her eyes. As she pulled herself back to the land of the awake and alert, she began examining the girl in front of her. She was well proportioned and quite pretty - not to mention well dressed. Something about her told Luna that she was a model. She forced herself to listen to the girl speak.

    “-people receiving an invitation from that André guy, aren’t you.” she was saying. Luna could pick out a faint feeling of concern in the girl’s voice. “I take it crowds aren’t your cup of tea, non? I have one of those fancy pink letters myself.”

    Luna raised an eyebrow slightly, surprised. There was absolutely nothing about her that could have told the model girl that she had a letter from André. Sure, she was sitting alone in an alleyway close to the place where the movie star was probably greeting the new arrivals and taking pictures with his fans, but that didn’t mean anything. She decided to ignore the question of how the girl knew for now - for all she could tell, the model girl could simply just be very perceptive.

    “If you want clear passage to the Café, just stay close behind me, and I’ll clear the way.” the model girl continued, and Luna could tell she wasn’t entirely sure Luna had an invitation from André. Luna didn’t do anything to tell her otherwise - there was no need. The model girl turned, and walked out of the alleyway.

    Luna debated whether to follow her. The positives were obvious - if she was indeed capable of clearing a way through the crowd, it meant that Luna could essentially skip the more likely than not awkward interactions with André’s fans on the way in. It also meant that she would be able to take advantage of the model girl’s introduction to slip in relatively unnoticed. However, it would mean she’d have to enter the café under the watchful eyes of everyone in the crowd, something she didn’t exactly relish doing, and was hoping she could bypass by waiting for the crowd to disperse. Unfortunately, that didn’t seem to be happening anytime soon. Luna made up her mind - she would follow the model girl.

    Luna got to her feet, and began walking about half a meter away from the model girl. As the girl had said, she was indeed pretty good at clearing a way through the crowd of screaming fans. As Luna quickly made her way through the path the model girl had created, she heard the fans on the side muttering a name.

    ‘Is that Katherine Lascelles?” she heard someone say. “Wasn’t she the one on the fashion show a while back?”

    Katherine. So that was the model girl’s name.

    Luna felt the crowd closing in behind her, as well as eyes on the back of her hood, and sped up her pace. The model girl - Katherine - had stopped in front of some guy wearing pink, and was talking to him. Sensing that people were looking at Katherine -who was pretty eye-catching - and not her, Luna took this opportunity to slip into the café relatively unnoticed, sliding her own letter across the table the guy in pink - presumably André Bell-something - was sitting on her way in.

    Jax Savatier
    Lumiose City - Café Soleil


    Jax exited his taxi, thanked and tipped the driver, and grinned at the swarm of fans gathered around Cafe Soleil. A meowth stood at the young man's feet, clothed in a miniature version of their 'Clefairy Pink!' line of casual shirts - the fabric was smooth, not heavy, and a soft pastel pink with brown shoulders. At least, that's what Julie - Jax's business partner and designer for their company - had told him. Jax had insisted he dress in pink as well for the event, but Julie told him that they didn't have any men's button-up shirts in pink from their own line, much to Jax's dismay. He'd instructed her to work on changing that (ignoring her argument of a lack of demand for pink), and donned a light indigo shirt instead, with dark-brown dress pants and black dress shoes. He wore a tie from their 'Munna Flowers!' line, which was apparently pink with purple flowers. Julie insisted it was overkill - Jax insisted Andre Bellamy lived for pink overkill. Not that Jax really understood why, as his colourblindness made his entire ensemble look pretty dull in his opinion. He had to take Julie's word for it that pink did look bright and vivid to most people.

    Jax patted Felix the meowth on the head and slipped some of his business cards into his paws (Jax Savatier, Chat Chanceux Co., Pokemon-Inspired Clothing). Until they could get actual fliers designed, these would have to do. "Alright buddy, hand these out to everyone in the crowd. They're all here for Andre, so I'd have no luck doing it myself. You look great in that shirt, play it up a bit."

    "Meow, meowth!" Felix agreed, accepting the cards as the pair strode into the cafe.

    There were many excited giggling girls in the onlooking crowd, and Felix obediently started handing out the cards. Fortunately Felix won the attention of a few of them - it wasn't often a meowth in a pink shirt handed out business cards after all, especially as the species wasn't native to Kalos. Meanwhile, Jax strode ride up to Andre Bellamy, flashing a toothy smile. "Monsieur Bellamy!" he greeted, adding two quick kisses on either cheek. Jax rarely performed la bise on men he'd never met before, but he'd done enough research to know that Andre Bellamy typically did. He needed everything to be perfect. "An honour to meet you, and an even bigger one to travel with you." He slid the golden ticket across the table to Andre, and slipped a business card on top. "I must say, you're even more stunning in person. It's really no wonder you have such an entourage," he praised with a smile.

    Felix ran up to them and tugged on Jax's pants, gesturing to a woman with long blonde hair. Jax did a double take. "Pardon me, but are you Katherine Lascelles?" It definitely was - Julie would just about die when he told her he'd met with Andre Bellamy and Katherine Lascelles on the same day... in the same place, even! Oddly he felt less comfortable performing la bise on her, considering he hadn't researched her beforehand and generally avoided the traditional gesture on strangers, and settled offering his hand to shake. "I know you must hear this all the time, but you are absolutely gorgeous. A real natural beauty, and there aren't too many of those in the modelling industry nowadays," he continued smoothly. Felix offered her a business card.

    Jax made his rounds to the rest of the group, introducing himself and allowing Felix to hand out his business cards. There was a boy (or maybe a girl - Jax honestly couldn't tell) with electric blue hair, an extremely tall girl with straight blonde hair, another tall girl dressed entirely in black (who didn't look particularly pleased to be there), and a younger girl with dark eyes (who also didn't look particularly happy about the situation). He more or less said the same thing to all of them: "My name is Jax Savatier. Looks like we're going to be traveling together! What's your name?"

    (OOC: Once Legnak posts, I'll move things along. In the meantime, carry on with the interaction!)

    André Bellamy
    Lumiose City; Café Soleil
    Party: (Jolie)


    Soon more guests started to arrive. First, there was a beautiful blonde woman that André had seen in fashion shows before. "My name is Katherine. I take it you are Mr. Bellamy, Who sent me this letter, non?"

    André's face lit up when he saw the woman. He immediately gave her a kiss on each cheek, and handed her a pink rose like he had done with all the others that had come before. "Oui ma chérie!" He finally replied. "You must be Katherine Lascelles. I have seen you in fashion shows before. Tell me, by any chance do you know Zackary Lascelles? He is a famous model too. Beauty must run in the Lascelles family, non?" André said with a light chuckle.

    As André was talking to Katherine, another girl wearing a hood up came, left her invitation on the table, and went inside the cafe without saying a word to André or anybody else for that matter. André thought that was rude. If she went through all the trouble of coming here, the least she could have done was introduce herself. He would have to have a word with her later...

    Then another boy strode up to him with a bright smile of his own. André was glad that at least a few males had gotten this invitation. "Monsieur Bellamy!" he greeted, adding two quick kisses on either cheek. Something André was very happy about, and he also returned the gesture. "An honour to meet you, and an even bigger one to travel with you." He slid his invitation to André, which also had his business card on top. "I must say, you're even more stunning in person. It's really no wonder you have such an entourage." He praised with a smile.

    André chuckled, and handed him a pink rose as well. "Je suis enchanté de faire votre." He then noticed the pink tie with purple flowers he was wearing. and his eyes lit up once again. "Oh lŕ lŕ lŕ lŕ! Where did you get that tie? I have not seen anything like that before. All the ones I find are so... boring..."

    At this point, Jolie jumped off the table, and started flirting with the Meowth in the pink shirt that had accompanied Jax. "Clefairy clef." She said cutely, adding a wink at the end.

    Katherine Lascelles
    Lumiose City - Cafč Soleil
    Affected RP'er's: Mon, Tangeh


    "Pardon me, but are you Katherine Lascelles?" another voice chimed in before Andre could reply to her introduction. It seemed her name was wider known than she was aware of herself. Though it was somewhat exciting, she figured that it might do things a bit difficult here. "I know you must hear this all the time, but you are absolutely gorgeous. A real natural beauty, and there aren't too many of those in the modelling industry nowadays," the guy continued. Katherine smiled in return. Though it was true she was praised for her looks quite often, she never grew tired of hearing about it. The guy offered her a card, but she didn't bother to look at it, and put it away. The guy was pretty cute, he was dark-skinned, and dressed in a proper, elegant fashion. There was just something about well-dressed guys she liked. As he walked away, she overherard his name was Jack.. Or something. She would likely remember it later.

    After this, Andre stood up and proceeded to greet her in the true kalosian way with a kiss to each cheek, which she returned after him. "Oui ma chérie!" He replied. "You must be Katherine Lascelles. I have seen you in fashion shows before. Tell me, by any chance do you know Zackary Lascelles? He is a famous model too. Beauty must run in the Lascelles family, non?" he continued. She figured this topic would come up at some point anyway. After all, Zack was more famous than her internationally. "Oui." she replied. "He's my cousin. Uh, the son of my father's brother. Or.. my uncle." she said, finishing with a giggle. She wasn't really good at explaining family relations, and often forgot to just call him her cousin.

    It was after this she noticed how some of the other people there had their Pokemon out of their Pokeballs, and she released Persephone, who found her usual spot on top of her head, looking at her surroundings in a wary way. She wasn't too fond of bigger crowds of people, understandably. After this, Katherine found her way to a table in the corner, away from the screaming fans, and sat down to observe the others. The group wasn't too big, but she had no idea if there would come more people or not. So far, it looked like a rather colorful party, and she was starting to look forward to the trip.

    Michael Sky
    Lumiose City; Cafe Soleil
    Party: (Hannah)


    As soon as Michael had finished introducing himself to Andre, the actor had sprung up and... kissed him on both cheeks? Michael wasn't quite sure what to make of it, though he supposed the action fit with his image of Andre. Andre then gave Michael a rose, which Michael was also not sure what to do with. Groaning, Hannah just grabbed the rose and stuffed it in Michael's well-worn bag. Five others arrived in the time that Michael simply stood there, stunned that such a famous celebrity had actually... flirted with him? Michael still wasn't sure what that was all about. The first to arrive after Michael was a tall, tough looking girl with blonde hair and a Riolu. In fact, the girl was taller than Michael himself, which he was not used to. She introduced herself to Andre after glancing at Michael askance, which was the normal reaction to him. A somewhat badmouthed girl just a little shorter than Michael appeared afterwards with a hard look and an invitation that evidently was not hers. Andre didn't seem to mind, however, proceeding to spray her with perfume.

    Following this event, an elegant woman arrived, who Michael could have sworn he had seen before. She had the composure of a princess but a malicious aura. Michael felt somewhat uncomfortable around her. She released a Duskull from its Pokeball, and Michael realized why he was so uncomfortable. The trainer of a Ghost! As a trainer who preferred Normal type Pokemon, Ghost type trainers were far from his favorite. He moved on. A gloomy looking girl came afterwards, and Michael felt the same uncomfortable aura from her. Another Ghost type, perhaps?

    A well-dressed man arrived with a Meowth, and Michael eased up a bit. Another Normal type in the party made him feel better. The man came up to him, shaking his hand, and Michael found that a business card had found its way into his hand. "My name is Jax Savatier. Looks like we're going to be traveling together! What's your name?" Michael answered quite easily, "I'm Michael! I like your Meowth. This is Hannah, my partner." As Jax moved on, Michael approached the girl with a Riolu. Though Michael wasn't particularly keen about Fighting types either, at least his Normal types could actually hit them. "Hey, I'm Michael, and this is my friend, Hannah. I guess we're travelling together, so I thought I'd introduce myself."

    Luna Ashfeld
    Lumiose City; Café Soleil.
    Party: (Valencia)


    Luna entered the cafe and made a beeline for a table near the very back right corner. She sat down, put her small bag, which contained pretty much all her belongings worth bringing - her one and only Pokéball, two changes of clothing, an umbrella, and notebook and pen - on the floor next to her. She didn’t order anything (she had no money on her), and instead took the time to examine those around her. Since the only people actually inside the Café were teenagers, she assumed that everyone there was in some way associated with André and this training trip.

    The first person she laid eyes on was a boy - perhaps a girl, but something about him made Luna think him masculine - with blue hair and surprisingly large, green eyes. He looked friendly enough, and seemed to be a rather genuine person. Luna made a mental note to stay away from him as much as possible. Those that are friendly and genuine also tend to try and be friendly with her more than she would like, despite their good intentions.

    There was an extremely tall girl with blond hair and eyes that burned with some sort of inner fire. Luna couldn’t tell if it was a trick of the light or not, but she seemed to radiate some sort of enthusiasm. She also seemed quite friendly, and extremely upbeat. She also had a scar on her forehead, as well as numerous smaller and less distinct ones that would have been difficult to notice if you weren’t searching for them. Luna had always learned to search for scars - they could tell you a lot about a person. And these scars told her that the girl with blond hair was quite the reckless sort.

    And then there was the other girl, or, perhaps, woman. She was evidently quite a bit older than Luna, and looked like trouble. She wore all black, and the way she held herself reminded Luna a bit too well of the older, not-quite-pleasant girls she had had to deal with when she was living in a place quite a lot less comfortable than this one. Luna decided to stay out of her way as much as possible - for all she knew, that lady could be dangerous.

    She was snapped out of her thoughts by the arrival of a tall man with dark skin, who was wearing an outfit that Luna immediately took a disliking to. While there was nothing wrong with it from an objective standpoint, the excessive pinkness of his tie irked her. Before she could reach down into her bag for something as a way to avoid eye contact, the man stepped forwards and introduced himself as ‘Jax Savatier’. Luna looked up despite herself - she had heard that name somewhere before. She remembered hearing that a guy by a similar - or perhaps identical - name ran some sort of clothing brand. As she did so, her left eye flashed purple for a second as the light fell on it, then promptly disappeared from sight as she pulled her hood a bit further over her face.

    The guy - Jax, that was his name - had already engaged in a conversation with the boy with blue hair, who had introduced himself as ‘Michael’. Michael promptly complimented the guy’s Meowth, then turned to introduce himself to the fire girl, as Luna had already taken to calling the tall blond. Luna didn’t wait to see her response. Instead, she bent down and freed Valencia’s Pokéball from underneath one of her spare shirts. The Misdreavus ought to have grown sick of the Pokéball already - she hated cramped spaces - and Luna had nothing better to do than give her Pokémon some much-needed exercise. She opened the Pokéball and let Valencia out.

    The Misdreavus looked around, surveying the room, then promptly launched herself at the boy with blue hair.

    Solaris Hernandez
    Café Soleil, Lumiose
    Party: (X)


    After she said. What he did would've normally shocked her and made her ask angrily why in the world did the person do that...if it weren't for the fact that she saw him do it with the other guy. He kissed her on both cheeks. She was really grateful she saw him do it on the other guy first, because she might've--okay, would've shoved him. And that wouldn't be good for any of them, especially the actor. She has pished people to the ground accidently even when she didn't mean to.

    Then André gave her a pink rose, just like he did with the first guy. Although she wasn't exactly a fan of pink, she didn't mind it. In fact, the rose was pretty. She liked flowers and her mother liked pink, hence her bracelet. She glanced at it, then back at the rose. It seemed like it was a real rose, so it'd wither soon. Maybe she could send it back home when they get to the next place. Her mom would love this. She handed X the flower.

    "Could you carefully put it inside? I wanna send it to mom when I can," she told him.

    The Riolu nodded with a smile and did as asked. Several other people arrived as he finished, including a model, and were greeted the same way as her and the other guy: with two kisses and a rose. It was funny watching André spray perfume on the girl in black. She probably didn't like the smell. Solaris, personally, didn't like perfume, but that was only because she liked the smell of actual flowers, not the artificial stuff. Okay, yes, she knows some do in fact use ground up flowers, but she likes the natural one better.

    One caught her eye. It was a girl from what she could tell and she just slipped her invite on a table before heading inside. She knew she was trying to not be spotted from how quiet she was, and how she covered her face, but she was a bit more used to catching subtle stuff after taking care of her adoptive brother. She wasn't that good, but she did pay more attention to some stuff.

    She was about to take a seat when suddenly one of the guys who arrived came up to her and said, "My name is Jax Savatier. Looks like we're going to be traveling together! What's your name?"

    She couldn't help herself from blinking. When did he show up in front of her? That was odd. She still answered anyway.

    "Solaris Hernandez."

    Then the guy went to the others, while his Meowth followed him, after it gave her a card. Confused, she read what was on it and mentally groaned. It was a business card. She hoped he wasn't one of those guys who'd constantly--as in constantly--advertise and make business every second. Although from how he greeted André, and the model, he probably wasn't. She was going to heighten her patience though, just in case. As annoying as those people could be, it takes awhile to convince them to stop and so, she will. She'd rather take a long time than hurt someone's feelings.

    She finally got her chance to sit down by pulling one of the chairs from the table André sat at. She placed it two to three feet away from the table, since she didn't need to use it and so made space for those who did want to. This was when someone else came to her and introduced himself.

    "Hey, I'm Michael, and this is my friend, Hannah. I guess we're travelling together, so I thought I'd introduce myself."

    It was the same boy she first saw.

    She smiled and said, "Nice to meet you, Micheal. Name's Solaris. People usually call me what my parents call me, Sura." She then pointed at X. "This here's X. He's my best bud."

    X happily said "Rio!" and waved hello in greeting.

    He probably heard her name when she introduced herself to André but it wouldn't hurt. She remembered some people couldn't believe her name was Solaris. It was such an odd, or rather, fictional sounding name. At best, it sounded like a nickname. But that wasn't the case with her. She clearly remembered her real father calling her Solaris when she was young.

    She returned her arm by her side and said, "You excited for the trip? 'Cause I can't wait to face other Trainers." She couldn't help herself. She was really excited for some good battles, and maybe a few duels. Though she'd probably only be ableto duel with martial artists.

    ... A beat.

    "Is it all right if I call you Mike?" She liked calling others with short names. It was easier to call them at a moment's notice, and it was a habit she developed from her mom. Her side of the family had a habit of calling others with shorter names.

    Out of the corner of her eye, she could've sworn she saw someone release their Pokémon. For some reason, she had a feeling an outburst is at hand.

    The girl introduced herself as Solaris, which Michael found was quite nice. Apparently her Riolu's name was X? Which was... interesting, Michael supposed. He had seen stranger nicknames for Pokemon, and he was no expert of naming with his indecisiveness. One time, unable to decide a good name for a childhood Bidoof, Michael had simply named him Bid. He felt that he was in no position to judge Solaris, so he simply smiled and nodded. "You excited for the trip? 'Cause I can't wait to face other Trainers." Suddenly, Michael became very excited. "Oh yeah, I love battling! I can't wait to see how strong the rest of you are!" "Is it all right if I call you Mike?" Suddenly, Michael froze up. No one had ever called him Mike before, and he felt very indecisive about how to respond. "Oh, well, I guess that should be fine... But no one's ever called me that before... I mean... Sure? maybe? Perhaps?" Michael was spared further embarrassment when he felt a concerning presence. "Misssssssssssssssss" The gloomy looking girl had sent out a Misdreavus. A Ghost type! The Misdreavus started charging at Michael, and he hid behind Solaris for protection. "Excuse me, um, could you call off your Misdreavus? I find Ghost types to be a bit concerning..."

    André Bellamy
    Lumiose City; Café Soleil
    Party: (Jolie)


    While everything was going on, André was approached by yet another person. This person was a man who looked way too old to have received one of the invitations he sent out. The man had big fiery red hair, with a beard to match. André never cared for facial hair on anybody, and never understood why men internationally went out of their way to grow one. Who wanted to kiss a man with a hairy face? Certainly not him.

    "You must be André Bellamy." The man started to say. "I have heard so much so much about you."

    "Well of course you have, monsieur. Nearly everyone has. I am a star after all."

    "My name is Lysandre." The man introduced. "The head of Lysandre labs, which created the Holo-Caster."

    Assuming that this guy wanted him to promote his device, André reached into his bag, and pulled out his own custom made, pink, diamond encrusted Holo-Caster, and showed it off before putting it back in the bag. "I already have my own, merci." He was pretty sure the Holo-Caster did not need somebody famous to promote it. Just about everyone in Kalos had one of their own. There was hardly any competition.

    "Oh, I'm not here about that. You played a young boy so wonderfully on the silver screen. Wouldn't you rather remain young and beautiful forever and always play such roles?"

    André raised an eyebrow. "What a strange question... I would like to be an adult sometime. After all, I cannot remain a child forever."

    "You were chosen to be a movie star, correct? Isn't it your duty to be ever beautiful? Everything beautiful should stay that way forever."

    "Monsieur, I do intend to remain beautiful forever." Then André took out a pink compact mirror from his bag, opened it, and smiled at his own reflection

    "I would end the world in an instant so that beauty never fades." Lysandre went on. "I can't stand the thought of the world becoming any uglier."

    André had to stop himself from laughing out loud at that comment. Of all the people in the world to be talking about getting uglier. He had that ridiculous haircut and unshaven face. At least his outfit was alright. The young movie star kissed his reflection, and put his mirror away but said nothing. André had a feeling there was something not quite right with this guy.

    "You are one of the most accomplished movie stars from Kalos. You move the multitudes with your excellent acting. You dedicate your life to making other peole happy. Oh! If everyone were like you, what a beautiful world this would be!" And with that, the man took off.

    Once again, André raised an eyebrow. As much as he appreciated the compliment, it was clear that this Lysandre person was an odd fellow. The young movie star didn't spend much time dwelling on that. He got out of his chair, and made a quick call for one of his assistants to take his shopping bags. Once they had gotten his stuff, André scooped Jolie into his arms. "Well, I believe everybody has arrived. Before we begin our little adventure, It is time to make a quick stop." André gestured for everyone to follow him, and made his way towards Sycamore labs. They were going to need their licenses and Pokedexes after all.

    ---

    Sycamore Labs

    It didn't take long for the group to arrive at the lab. When they got inside, there was a young woman in a white suit waiting for them. "Oh, you must be André Bellamy, and that group of young trainers accompanying him. We figured you would be coming here. The professor is waiting on the third floor." She gestured to the elevator a few steps away.

    Apparently the Professor didn't expect such large groups of trainers to be coming in all at once, because the elevator was only big enough to fit one person. Naturally, André was the first person to get on the elevator and get to the third floor. Once he made it up there, he had to wait for the elevator to go down, and wait for everybody else to make it up one at a time.

    Professor Sycamore was already waiting there by the time everybody came up. He was much younger than André was expecting. He was prepared to meet with an old man, but this guy was actually attractive. "You know, one of these days I really should get a bigger elevator installed... Anyway, it is fantastic you all are here. Come this way won't you?"

    André and the group followed the Professor to his office, where the man stood in front of his desk. "I have heard that you all have decided to take your first Pokemon Journey together. I believe you all will do wonderfully. There is just something special about travelling the world with friends, non? Anyway, I will spare you all the long speech. I know why you all are here. First, there are things that need to be done." With that, one of his assistants brought in stacks of papers for everyone to fill out. "First, you will need to fill these out so that I may properly give you your license and Pokedex." Next, another assistant wheeled in a cart full of Pokeballs. "While I can see that all of you have Pokemon of your own already, we have these Pokemon to give to trainers just beginning their journeys. It would be best for them to travel and see the world as well, then be stuck in a stuffy lab, non?"

    The assistant pulled out six Pokeballs from the cart, and released the Pokemon inside. Fennekin, Froakie, Chespin. Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander. "Do not worry. I have plenty for everybody, so that each person can get the Pokemon they desire."

    André groaned at the mention of paperwork, but got excited seeing the starters. None of them were Fairy types. He decided a long time ago that he would specialize in Fairy types. Still, he saw one Pokemon he would make an exception for. He walked up to the Fennekin, picked it up, and started stroking it's head. Much to Jolie's annoyance, and the Fennekin's approval. "I choose this one." It had both the cuteness, and the elegance factor that André appreciated.

    Meanwhile, Jolie started flirting with the Charmander, then gave it a Sweet Kiss. This caused the Charmander to become giddy and confused, and it walked around the room dizzily. Jolie just giggled to herself.

    Luna Ashfeld
    Lumiose City; Café Soleil.
    Party: (Valencia)


    Luna even manage to sigh before her Misdreavus had done what she had set out to do. By the time she had looked up again, the blue haired boy was already using the fire girl as some sort of shield. She hastily recalled Valencia, making a mental note to have a word with the Misdreavus later, then began to hastily construct some sort of apology in her head.

    She was saved from an awkward situation by André’s arrival in the Café.

    "Well, I believe everybody has arrived. Before we begin our little adventure, It is time to make a quick stop.” he said, waving to tell them to follow him.
    Luna got up, slung her bag over her shoulder, and waited. She didn’t want to be the first out of the Café - people would notice that way. People only remember the first and last few, and ignored the ones in the middle. As she waited, she re-adjusted her scarf a bit - Lumiose was kind of warm.

    Sycamore Labs

    When they arrived at the Lab, there was a young woman in a white suit waiting for them. She greeted them, then gestured at the elevator, indicating that they should use that to ascend to the third floor, where Professor Sycamore was waiting for them. The elevator was only large enough to fit one person, so they had to go up one at a time. Naturally, André went up first. Again, Luna waited until about half of them were upstairs before going herself.

    They arrived on the third floor, and Professor Sycamore was waiting for them. He was younger than Luna had expected, but not by much.

    "You know,” he said, "one of these days I really should get a bigger elevator installed... Anyway, it is fantastic you all are here. Come this way won't you?”

    They followed him into his office. In there, he gave them a little talk about travelling the world with friends and how wonderful that is - Luna wasn’t really listening, as she was more concerned with the numerous Pokéballs his assistant had brought in on a cart. Just as she was examining them, the Professor handed them some papers, and told them to fill them in. Apparently, they were necessary paperwork.
    Luna filled them in, then examined the six Pokemon in front of her.

    One was a green lizard. it was quite chubby, but Luna didn’t like the look of it. Then there was a red lizard, which had just been attacked by André’s Clefairy, and was stumbling around the room. She didn’t quite like it either. Then, there was a turtle. Luna had never liked turtles.

    There was a fox, but it was busy being stroked by André. There was a green, monkey-like thing that Luna didn’t particularly like, and then there was the frog. It was sitting there, completely still, eyes scanning the people arrayed in front of it, almost like it was watching some monkeys in a zoo. Luna liked that attitude - she often felt the same way. She did a quick mental calculation - she could either wait for the others to finish before choosing hers, but since it wasn’t the Pokémon she was attracted to, but its personality, waiting would mean risking the loss of the Pokémon she wanted. She decided that waiting was not a good idea. After making sure nobody was headed towards the same Pokémon, she walked forwards, then bent down and gave the frog a pat on the head, to claim it as hers.

    Jessalyn MacDougall
    Lumiose City; Cafe Soleil
    Party: (Raoul)


    Murmurs arose among the crowd, Jessie catching bits of them, hearing nothing more than the usual. Andre, however, gestured for the crowd to calm down, assuring them that there was nothing wrong. As if to prove it, he leaned towards the dark-haired girl and began to introduce himself, before sniffed and his expression changed. Jessie took a step back and quirked her brow, as if to ask him what his problem was. She smoked, big deal. It wasn't as if she was that hygienically challenged! The actor reached into one of his shopping bags and pulled out a clear, pink-tinted bottle of perfume; one of those types that was shaped like a diamond gemstone and had a fancy golden cap with a pink silk ribbon decorating it. He popped it open, then pumped a few sprays of what turned out to be sickly-sweet liquid towards Jessie's face.

    "Beaucoup mieux!" Andre giggled, and was joined by his Clefairy as well as the onlookers. Jessie, however, was not amused. It was exactly the kind of perfume she despised, and she would rather sniff cigarette smoke all day than dare put on any perfume of that sort, whose saccharine scent she couldn't stand. She made a face and took out another cigarette, as well as her black skull-shaped lighter. Andre wasn't finished, however. He leaned in to kiss her on both cheeks and tucked a pink rose behind her ear. The green-eyed girl plucked the rose out and dropped it at her feet and stomped on it, before lighting her cigarette. Just because he was a movie star didn't mean that she had to conduct herself differently and swoon.

    "Hey, apologize to Andre, jerk!" A girl's voice pierced over the crowd. Jessie placed the lighted cigarette between her lips and glared at Andre. So what if she smoked or hated pink flowers? It wasn't as if they were crimes.

    "I don't do pink, Bellamy...and I don't do kisses," she growled, before turning away as he dealt with some other people who had just arrived. She slunk to the corner of the cafe and smoked as she noticed a familiar blonde face approach the pink-clad actor. Katherine Lascalles. It had to be. After all, it was hard to avoid billboards, and even harder not to get used to seeing the Laverre native's face. Another person slipped past - smaller, with a face covered by a hood and scarf, though the . Without greeting Andre, the hooded person, whose gait gave away the fact that she was a girl, dropped her invitation on top of the table before heading inside. She surveyed the others who had showed up earlier - a tall, blonde girl whose height put most men to shame, a Riolu in tow. She seemed friendly, judging from how she accepted the rose from Andre. Then again, Jessie herself would have been a bit less hostile...if she hadn't been assaulted with vile perfume, kissed on her cheeks and given a pink rose. There was also a slender, blue-haired man with an Aipom. His fashion sense was almost as ridiculous as Andre's, saved only by the fact that he did not dress in head-to-toe pink.

    "Hound, hound!" Raoul barked, and the dark-haired girl looked down to see what the matter was. A Meowth dressed in a pink shirt and clutching business cards stood in front of the tiny pup, who was evidently irked at the feline.

    "Easy, boy," Jessie murmured as she bent down and swiped one of the business cards from the pink-clad Meowth, giving the cat Pokemon a hard look to make him go away. His business was finished, so all he had to do was leave them alone, right? Wrong. The Meowth lingered, and Jessie grimaced, ripping the business card into two messy halves as she eyed the Meowth.

    "Some asshole had to be really sadistic to put you in that thing, am I right?" She muttered under her breath. Unfortunately, said asshole showed up just at that moment. He took the form of a rather attractive, dark-skinned young man, dressed formally. He could have been anyone; a con artist, a businessman or someone who just enjoyed dressing fancy for no reason.

    "My name is Jax Savatier. Looks like we're going to be traveling together! What's your name?" He introduced himself, and Jessie noted that he sounded friendlier than she expected, though for all she knew, he was using that to his advantage. Still, if she was going to be traveling with a bunch idiots, they might as well know her name…not that she had to depend on them anyway.

    "Jessie MacDougall," she nodded, before holding up her smoking cigarette to her lips. "Asshole," she continued, winking almost imperceptibly before she swaggered away. Raoul, who was staring down the Meowth, as if he was going to bite him, quickly broke off and hurried towards his trainer. Just a short ways off, an extremely tall man with leonine features was speaking to Andre. An actor, perhaps? Sure was the only plausible explanation for his funny hair. It only took her a few moments to notice the familiar blonde head of Katherine Lascalles, who was just lingering nearby. A fashionable, expensive light-colored outfit and high heels…was she serious about going on an adventure?

    "Katherine Lascalles. Fancy seeing you here…never took you for the adventuring type," Jessie commented, her voice deadpan as she peered from under the brim of her newsboy cap. "Or, let me guess…publicity."

    "Well, I believe everybody has arrived. Before we begin our little adventure, It is time to make a quick stop." Andre interrupted, gesturing for everyone to follow him. Jessie crossed her arms and grunted, before remembering that Professor Sycamore's lab was in this city. Right, at least it ain't a boutique. She bent down and picked up Raoul, allowing him to hang onto her shoulder, before she went on her way.

    Sycamore Labs

    "Oh, you must be André Bellamy, and that group of young trainers accompanying him. We figured you would be coming here. The professor is waiting on the third floor," A young woman dressed in white greeted the group, motioning to the elevator. Professor Sycamore, she scoffed, picturing a creepy older man as the professor. Did she really have to meet any professor? She did not believe in formalities after all, and would much rather obtain it via courier, if only it wasn't so expensive to do so. Andre entered the tiny elevator first, which seemed like it only fit one person. Jessie waited until she was the only one left before she stepped in and pressed the third-floor button.

    Once she rejoined the group, they were greeted by a man who was…much younger than Jessie expected.

    "You know, one of these days I really should get a bigger elevator installed... Anyway, it is fantastic you all are here. Come this way won't you?"

    "Yeah, no shit," she mumbled at the mention of a bigger elevator. The group followed Professor Sycamore to his office, and he took his place at his desk.

    "I have heard that you all have decided to take your first Pokemon Journey together. I believe you all will do wonderfully. There is just something special about travelling the world with friends, non? Anyway, I will spare you all the long speech. I know why you all are here. First, there are things that need to be done," he began, an assistant bringing in stacks of paper as he spoke. Rose cursed under her breath as she stuffed her hands into the pockets of her black, hooded vest. Paperwork was always the worst part of everything."First, you will need to fill these out so that I may properly give you your license and Pokedex." Another assistant came in, wheeling in a cart full of Pokeballs.

    "While I can see that all of you have Pokemon of your own already, we have these Pokemon to give to trainers just beginning their journeys. It would be best for them to travel and see the world as well, then be stuck in a stuffy lab, non?" Sycamore commented while an assistant pulled out six Pokeballs from the cart and released the Pokemon from within them, most likely all the types that were available to beginning trainers. Fennekin, Froakie, Chespin. Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur. "Do not worry. I have plenty for everybody, so that each person can get the Pokemon they desire."

    Jessie knew what she wanted. For a long time, she had always felt an affinity for the Dark-type, and wanted to specialize in them. Froakie was an easy choice…but all the Pokemon that had been released seemed so docile and calm. Well, except for the Charmander who had been attacked by Andre's Clefairy and was now stumbling around, disoriented. The raven-haired girl eyed the Pokeballs, arranged according to what Pokemon they contained, and picked one from the far right of the cart, one with a water-element symbol. She then turned around and released the Pokemon from inside, looking over her shoulder briefly only to see that the girl with the big scarf had chosen the Froakie that had been set out. She looked in front of her once more to find…no trace of any Pokemon in front of her?

    "What the hell…" she cursed, looking inside the empty Pokeball. Nothing. Before she could do anything further, however, black fabric obscured her vision as someone or something, pulled her hood over her eyes. Raoul had jumped off her shoulder and started barking at the supposed offender. She pushed her hood upwards, away from her eyes, as her expression morphed into one of anger and she balled one hand into a fist. Who dared play a prank on her, thinking that she was going to let them be?

    Raoul was standing in front of a Froakie, snarling. The Froakie had its foam pulled up over its eyes, like a mask, its expression one of mischief and teasing as he stuck his tongue out at Raoul and hopped away. Jessie rarely laughed, but she couldn't help herself this time. The Froakie had a lot of moxie, and she appreciated Pokemon as ballsy as she was. She laughed, roughly but genuinely, before she knelt down and picked up the frog Pokemon with both hands, one corner of her mouth tugged into some sort of smile. Raoul gave her a questioning look, and she nodded, assuring him that the Froakie was a friend.

    "You're actually…hella awesome," she admitted. The amphibian pulled down its hood and stuck out its long tongue at her once more, like the little rogue he was. Loki. You're my Loki, she thought.

    Solaris Hernandez
    Café Soleil, Lumiose -> Prof. Sycamore's Lab
    Party: (X)


    Sura smiled at Micheal's earlier comment when she shared her excitement. He was looking forward to seeing how strong everyone else was. She couldn't wait until she got the chance to. She also wondered about the strength of the girl in black. She had a feeling not only she might be a pretty strong Trainer, she could put up a good fight herself. After all, you don't get that attitude and demeanor without being at least competent in fighting.

    Then Micheal started stuttering. She was confused. He didn't sound like he didn't like being called something shorter, but he sounded unsure. He did say it was okay though.

    "Mike it is, then!" she said, still smiling.

    It seemed her peripheral vision wasn't failing her, because someone did indeed let out their Pokémon. It was a Misdreavus and it charged straight for Micheal. Thankfully, he noticed and promptly hid behind her. Apparently, he was a bit scared of Ghost-types. She wondered why though. Sure, some were pretty creepy, but they weren't that bad. Unless, they're trying to take your soul, but that's another story for another time.

    The owner, the girl with the hood, returned her Misdreavus just as Micheal asked. She wondered if the girl was going to apologize, if it weren't for the fact that André came in and said that he thinks everyone has already been gathered. So the group left the café and went to the lab of the famous Professor Sycamore.

    ...

    The trip to their destination was surprisingly quick. When they reached it, Solaris had her usual smile on. But if you compared it to her previous smiles, it was clear it was an excited one. Her father--adoptive father--often worked with the Kalosian professor. She would help him whenever she could in whatever she could, but she never went into the professor's lab. She looked around and, as plain as it may seem, she was still happy to be here. She wondered if the Mega Evolution professor knew her, at least by name. She highly doubted it, but she couldn't help it.

    Her excitement made it easy to wait for her turn for the elevator, as she continued to observe her surroundings. Apparently, a group of Trainers travelling together wasn't common and so Sycamore never bothered with installing a large elevator. She did find it weird it could only fit one person. Even the smallest elevator could fit at least five to ten people. She shrugged the thought. It was all he needed until now and so it was probably the cheapest. After all, Pokémon research was likely to be expensive.

    When everyone was in the same room on the current floor, Sycamore asked for them to fill out some paperwork to get their Trainer's License. After he said that, a woman brought in several Pokémon. Solaris couldn't help but stare in amazement. Yeah, sure, they were your average starters, but she still found them cool. There were the starters native to Kanto, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. Then there were the Kalos starters, Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie. Her excitement now making her ready to burst, she quickly filled out the papers--name, residence and all--before going near the starters and crouching by them.

    By this time, André picked the Fennekin and the hooded girl petted the Froakie, which she assumed she picked. She looked at each of them. The Charmander seemed to have been confused. She, herself, became confused at that until she saw André's Clefairy giggling. It must've done something to it. She went back to looking at them. As cool as all of them were, she knew it'd be best if she chose something she could help train. But another part of her didn't want to just choose one because she wanted the Pokémon. She knew these starters were probably used to it, but she'd rather be friends first then choose one.

    Sura was so wrapped up in her thoughts that she didn't notice one of the starters was near her. It was only when it tapped her bracelet did she return to reality, and saw a Chespin looking at her bracelet.She blinked.

    "Rio!" X said and she felt him wave at the Chespin.

    The Grass-type looked up to him and waved back at him, then it said, "Chespin!"

    It was a girl Chespin. At least, it sounded like one to her. After she greeted X, she went back to examimg her bracelet with interest. Sura looked back and forth between the mammal and her bracelet before held out her wrist near her. The Chespin was startled and stared at Sura in surprise.

    "You like this?"

    The mammal beamed and feverishly nodded her head. Sura couldn't stop herself from chuckling.

    "Well, it's um...a gift from my mom, so uh, I'd like to keep it, but maybe I could get you something?"

    She chuckle again when the Chespin nodded again with as much vigor. She heard X chuckle as well, which earned him a glare from the girl. She felt her Riolu panic and stammer an apology which made her laugh. The Chespin seemed to say something to X. She didn't understand it, of course, but she felt like she was saying something along the lines, "Just 'cause I like girly stuff doesn't mean I can't beat you." If that was true, she liked this Chespin's attitude. Although she wasn't so sure about the thought of getting her accessories. But she was getting along well with X, even with that little hiccup earlier.

    "Hey," she said. The starter looked to her attentively. "You wanna come along with me?"

    The Grass-type squeeled in happiness and jumped into her arms...which turned into a Tackle as she was pushed on her back on the ground. Both she and X shouted when that happened. She heard Chespin say something--probably a Pokémon language apology. She and X just laughed and the Chespin at first was confused, but she ended up laughing with them. Sura and the Pokémon soon gathered their wits and she sat back up, holding the Chespin in her arms.

    "Heh heh, I'm all right. I'm just happy you're excited," she said to her with a smile.

    "Rio!" X said in agreement.

    The Chespin looked at her like she was being silly but she soon smiled and said, "Chespin, ches."

    Sura smile turned brighter. She liked this Chespin. She reminded her of her mom, nice, sweet, and pretty feminine but wouldn't mind dropping it for a moment to kick someone's butt. She was thinking of something to name her... Well, she couldn't name if that same as her mom's name. That would cause confusion when she getd back one day. So it had to be something related to mom...

    She thought of things her mom liked: martial arts, Pokémom, pink, music, flowers... She was tempted to name her after a flower but that one was a bit obvious. Besides, she didn't know any other flower that could hurt you if you're not careful other than a rose. So she it had to be something involving music since karate or shaolin would be weird sounding names, even weirder than just plain X. Her mom liked humming melodies but melody was an equally common name. ... She thought of one.

    She looked to the Chespin. "Is it all right if I call you Aria?"

    The Chespin nodded and Sura smiled warmly. She liked this Chespin. Definitely gonna call her Aria.

    Katherine Lascelles
    Cafč Soleil - Sycamore's Lab
    Affected RP'er's: Mon, Tangeh



    The next few minutes went by rather without much excitement. Being in waiting-mode, Katherine had ordered one of the cafč's famous Swirlix Shakes. Sugar bombs of sweetness and potential diabetes were always among her favorite orders when it came to.. more or less everything edible or consumable. She had also sent her cousin Zackary a text regarding Andre's new little adventure, but didn't get much reply. If she wasn't entirely mistaken, he should be in the Unova region, doing a showcase of the newest season-inspired collection. she sighed. He'd probably miss out on granny's birthday. Though, so would she, likely.

    Trying To focus on something other than her granny's inevitable wrath, she tried paying attention to all the people. everyone seemed to be getting aquainted, and the group offered a variety of faces, and thus probably a variety of personalities. "Katherine Lascalles. Fancy seeing you here…never took you for the adventuring type," another girl said, ripping her out of her thoughts. It was a pretty tall woman clad in black. She tried looking intimidating, but it all just failed considering her tiny adorable Houndour "Or, let me guess…publicity." Katherine scoffed. Sure, this girl seemed to be one of those rebel-types, but it was downright rude to just assume things like that. Sure, she had done her fair share of weird publicity stunts, but didn't people know she had retired?

    "No, I'm only in this for the exercise." She said, looking at the girl while taking a big slurp from her shake. Persephone chuckled as she floated next to her face. She seemed wary of the Houndour. Though it was tiny and.. adorable, it was still a Dark-Type, a type Persephone wasn't too fond of. "On a different note though, that Houndour of you is surely adorable! My cousin has one of its evolved forms, and I would love to see a Houndoom-Mini!", she said in a slightly taunting voice. She knew she was gonna like this girl.

    "Well, I believe everybody has arrived. Before we begin our little adventure, It is time to make a quick stop." Andre interrupted, gesturing for everyone to follow him. Katherine stood up and walked after him, bracing herself for the ocean of fans outside.

    "Oh, you must be André Bellamy, and that group of young trainers accompanying him. We figured you would be coming here. The professor is waiting on the third floor," A young woman dressed in white greeted the group as they arrived, pointing them to the smallest elevator she had ever seen. Being the great host that he was, andre entered the elevator first, leaving the group there. Raising an eyebrow, she patiently waited her turn. She was in no hurry, and decided to go once the race to be the next one up had settled down. Stepping in, she pressed the third floor button, and a robotic voice said. "Going up" before the elevator started moving. It was uncomfortable being in such a close space, especially it beign an elevator. She shrugged before stepping out and into the professors office. She had seen him a lot before, and wasn't surprised by his appearance. He was way too young, and way too hot to be a professor, she thought as she bit her lip.

    "You know, one of these days I really should get a bigger elevator installed... Anyway, it is fantastic you all are here. Come this way won't you?" he said as he greeted them. The rebel girl was the first to reply to this. "Yeah, no shit,", she mumbled to herself, all though Katherine caught it and giggled. "I have heard that you all have decided to take your first Pokemon Journey together. I believe you all will do wonderfully. There is just something special about travelling the world with friends, non? Anyway, I will spare you all the long speech. I know why you all are here. First, there are things that need to be done," the professor began, an assistant bringing in stacks of paper as he spoke. "First, you will need to fill these out so that I may properly give you your license and Pokedex."

    "And here I thought you had prepared for this visit.. What kind of eggheads are you?" Katherine mumbled to herself while Persephone chuckled her ominous laugh next to her. She knew the drill, and knew what kind of Pokemon were aveilable. She hadn't given it much though, she didn't really have to. She had made up her mind a long time ago what she would pick was she ever in the situation she was in now where she was to recieve a Pokemon from the professor. The aveilable Pokemon were released so that the trainers could take their time picking their pick. "Hmm.." she began before starting to talk to herself. "The obvious choice for a stereotypical blonde as myself would be a Fennekin, allthough the species is stigmatized as the poster Pokemon for every fangirling wannabe-star young girls in the entire region..". The fox Pokemon seemed disappointed by this, and wobbled away. Katherine then noticed a Froakie, playing pranks on the black clad girl. "Froakies are cute... But mostly associated with young guys trying to be cooler than they're really.. not.". She then looked over at the Kanto starters. "Nope." she simply said as she walked over to her choice: A lone Chespin sitting on the edge of a desk, flailing its little legs in the air while waiting to be returned to its pokeball. "You. Now you're just what I am looking for. Adorable, misunderstood, always in the shadow of.. those things." she said, looking over her shoulder towards the other pokemon. Persephone floated curiously over to behind the Chespin, which was looking at Katherine confused. "Now, I know we will be good friends." she said with a smile. "But! Only if you want to!", she then said, standing up, crossing her arms and looking away bastantally. "Ches?" The pokemon said in a confusing, yet somewhat worried tone. It seemed it wanted to come with her. "Superb! Now, that's what I wanted to hear." she then said, picking Chespin up in a hug, which it returned filled with joy. Persephone also happily floated around, greeting her new teammate. Sure, Chespin wasn't a Ghost-Type, but there was just something about big, sturdy Pokemon that Katherine just loved! Also, Chesnaughts looked pretty awesome as well.

    Carmelo Kinder
    Lumiose City Pokémon Center -> Café Soleil
    Party: (Chanel)

    At last, Carmelo and Chanel, his sidekick Snorunt, made it to Lumiose City. Before walking to Café Soleil, where he was supposed to meet the famous André Bellamy, he made a quick pit stop at the Pokémon Center on North Boulevard. Chanel was feeling tired, and so was he after walking nonstop all the way from Snowbelle City.

    After devouring the peanut butter and jelly sandwich he prepared before the trip, he took out the torn invitation he received that was the reason why he came to the city in the first place. He accidentally dropped the letter on the ground earlier, and a pedestrian just so happened to step on it before he could grab it. Lucky him…

    He managed to get some tape at the Pokémon Center from the nurse, though he couldn’t help but still feel embarrassed at the fact that he didn’t keep better care of the letter from a famous actor. This may not go over so well… Eh, maybe I’m overthinking things, he thought to himself. Chanel sensed that her trainer was lost in thought and poked him in the stomach.

    “Ah, sorry, Chanel,” he said with a nervous chuckle. “I almost forgot that we are on a bit of a time crunch.” He got up, put his backpack back over his shoulder, and held Chanel in his arms before walking out of the center and back into the bustling crowds of the city.

    --- Thirty Minutes Later ---

    “Where the heck are we, Chanel?” Carmelo asked his sidekick, as he looked all around him. Everywhere he looked, it seemed like an endless sea of tall buildings, and no sign of a Café Soleil anywhere. He had asked for directions from a pedestrian a few moments ago, although he had trouble understanding the man’s incredibly thick Kalosian accent.

    “There has to be a map of the city somewhere around here…” Just as he said that, he spotted a taxi driver parked near the Hotel Richissime. “A-ha!”

    Even though he detested the idea of using money so soon, especially for a taxi considering how expensive they can be, he was sure he was running late at this point, so he made a beeline for the car.

    He managed to make it to the taxi, not without bumping into a few strangers along the way, and asked the driver how quickly he could make it to Café Soleil.

    “How much money ya got?” The driver asked him. He had a strong accent as well, but he was a lot easier to understand than the pedestrian he spoke with earlier in the day.

    “Enough,” Carmelo answered, which seemed to placate the driver surprisingly. Carmelo hopped into the backseat and let Chanel out of his arms to sit in the seat next to him.
    “Hang on,” The driver said before stepping on the gas pedal towards South Boulevard, the location of Café Soleil. Carmelo and Chanel literally hung on for dear life to the back of the seats in front of them while the driving drove like a madman towards their destination. Somehow, he managed to dodge the crowds of people along the way. Carmelo figured the man must have years of experience driving around the bustling city by now.

    “I think I’m going to be sick,” Carmelo said at the end of the drive.

    “Sno…” Chanel uttered, holding her stomach.

    “That’ll be – Watch the *honk honk* car, you bozo!” The driver shouted at a biker that accidentally rammed into the back of the taxi. “These *honk honk* bikers, I tell ya.”

    Carmelo was amazed that another car managed to censor the driver’s swearing. “Right… Well, here is the money. Thanks for the ride.”

    “Anytime, boss!” The taxi driver said before driving off.

    Carmelo strolled into the café with Chanel walking closely behind him. After walking inside, he noticed that the place was full of people, but no sign of André Bellamy anywhere. He decided he would ask someone if André had been here.

    “Oh, yes! He was here earlier with a few other people. They left a while ago. Those people are so lucky they get to travel with him…” A teenage girl said, blushing at the thought of the actor.

    “Do you know where they went?” He asked the girl.

    “Um, well, someone said they saw him and his group walking towards Professor Sycamore’s Lab, but –”

    “Ah! I have to hurry! Sorry! Thanks!” Carmelo picked up Chanel and ran out of the café. He had been to Professor Sycamore’s Lab once a few years ago, and he knew that it was also on South Boulevard. He only had to run for a moment before making it to the lab.

    Café Soleil -> Sycamore's Lab

    “I’m expecting to get chewed out for being late, but this is the opportunity of a lifetime!” Carmelo had heard great things about the actor from his mother, who worked with André not too long ago on a spread in her Trčs Chic magazine. He never met him, but he was a fan of some of his movies, so he was excited to get the chance to travel with him.

    When he walked in, a woman greeted him and told him that André and the others were upstairs. He thanked her, stepped into the abnormally small elevator, and glanced at Chanel, who looked back at him with a smile. He was getting nervous, which Chanel could sense, and she poked him in the stomach as her way of telling him to relax. He took a deep breath before the elevator opened. He saw André and six others with their Pokémon.

    “Um, hi, everyone! I’m Carmelo, and this is my pal, Chanel… We aren’t too late, are we?” He said, as he showed his taped up invitation.

    André Bellamy
    Lumiose City; Sycamore Labs
    Party: (Jolie) (Daphne)


    André sat down at a chair and filled out his paperwork. Most of the information was basic things that anyone wanted to know could be found on the internet. He was a public figure after all. After he finished filling out all the papers, and turning them in to one of the assistants, he looked at his newly received Fennekin. "I will call you Daphne!" André exclaimed

    Daphne, didn't seem to have any problems with her name, and said "Fen!" with approval.

    Afterwards, he went over to where his Clefairy was standing. "I am glad that is finished."André said to Jolie. "I hope you have not been making trouble..." André knew Fairy types could be mischievous, and Jolie was no exception.

    "Clefairy!" Jolie replied innocently while batting her eyes cutely.

    André doubted that his Pokemon hadn't done something while he was distracted, but he didn't have much time to worry about it. Eventually, everyone completed their paperwork, and chose their starters. Jolie pointed and laughed at the Charmander she had Sweet Kissed that no one had picked. André glared at her, but said nothing.

    Next an assistant brought out a bunch of pokedexes in a bunch of different colors for everyone to choose from. André immediately chose a bright pink pokedex for himself. Then another assistant set up a camera to have pictures taken for everyone to have their pictures taken for the license photo. "Bien." He then pulled out a pink compact mirror from his bag, opened it, and started primping himself. Even though he had already done this earlier, that was a while ago. This was an important picture, and he needed to look good for it. Once he was satisfied with his appearance, he got in front of the camera, and smiled. Showing off his perfectly white teeth.

    Jolie couldn't help jumping into the picture, and posing. Wherever there was a camera, Jolie had to be there too. Daphne also decided to try doing the same. The fox was still a young Pokemon, and she just had to imitate the behavior of her elder. They also tried getting into everyone else's license photo. Eventually, André had to recall them, but he was sure by this point there would be a Fennekin and a Clefairy hidden on everyone's license.

    Just after André had his picture taken, the elevator suddenly pinged, and another person stepped out of it. “Um, hi, everyone! I’m Carmelo, and this is my pal, Chanel… We aren’t too late, are we?” said a casually dressed boy with curly black hair and accompanied by a Snorunt, as he showed his taped up invitation. André felt like the guy had potential. He just needed a better wardrobe, and potentially a new hairstyle.

    André raised an eyebrow, and approached the latecomer. "You know, I understand wanting to be fashionably late, but this is a bit much, non?" He said with a chuckle. He took the taped up invitation out of Carmelo's hands. He hoped that somebody hadn't ruined it on purpose. Otherwise, that would be an insult. "I can only guess that something... happened on the way here? It is no problem, you are here now, and that is all that matters. The more the merrier!" He then gave him a kiss on each cheek, and gave him a pink rose like all the others. (Where André keeps those roses, and how he always has one handy is one of the great mysteries of the universe.)

    Finally, after everything had been sorted out, the Professor came out, and apparently had more stuff to say, and the assistants still had more stuff to give them. "Now that we have all of that taken care of, I would like to ask you all for your help in solving the Kalos region's biggest mystery." As he said this, an assistant was putting out a bunch of multicolored balls on the desk. They looked like marbles only bigger. André couldn't help finding them pretty. "The secret and potential of Mega Evolution, a new kind of evolution that occurs in battle! On the desk right now are Mega Stones. We are still uncertain as to how they work, but we do know that they are an important clue. You each may choose one for yourselves."

    André didn't know a thing about this Mega Evolution. However, he was interested in the pretty stones. He didn't understand why the Professor was having a bunch of strangers do his research for him. Didn't he have assistants for that sort of thing? Regardless, André took one of the stones. A light blue one with a pink and green stripe down the center. For some reason, this stone reminded him of a Gardevoir. Maybe it was the shade of green in the middle? Regardless, André was attracted to this particular Mega Stone the most.

    After everyone chose their Mega Stone, the Professor went on. "If you're investigating Mega Evolution, why don't you check out Camphrier Town? That town has a lot of history--You might find a hint there."

    Again, André had to wonder why the Professor couldn't do this himself? Still, André kept quiet. As the professor continued with his speech. What happened to sparing us the long speech earlier?

    "Now listen, if you visit many different places, you will probably see Pokemon with many ways of living, and meet people with many ways of thinking. First, accept the ways of living and thinking that sometimes conflict with your own, and think about what's truly important. This will truly broaden your horizons. I want you all to be the best trainers you can be."

    André only half listened. He was really anxious to get out of there at this point. Before they were finally allowed to leave, the assistants gave them their licenses, as well as five empty Pokeballs. André didn't need the extra Pokeballs, he already bought several Luxury Balls well ahead of time, but he still took the balls anyway. "Merci beaucoup!" André exclaimed as he headed towards the tiny elevator once again.

    ---

    Once André made it back down the first floor, André saw something he wasn't expecting. He saw that Lysandre man that had spoken to him earlier speaking to the young woman that had greeted them earlier. André hadn't planned on acknowledging them, but the assistant called him over.

    "You received a Pokedex from the Professor then? How wonderful!" Lysandre said with odd enthusiasm. "That is a wonderful thing indeed. You are one of the chosen ones. I have learned as much as I can about Pokemon to help build a brighter future. Professor Sycamore has taught me so much. Now listen, it is vital that this world become a better place. And the people and Pokemon chosen to make this world better must work tirelessly to achieve this goal. Well, I must be off. Please give Professor Sycamore my best. My desire... is for a more beautiful world!" And once again, Lysandre took off.

    André was a little worried that this guy was following him. He had heard about crazy celebrity stalkers before, and some of them were actually dangerous. He made a note to himself to get better security at some point.

    Finally. everyone had made it down the elevator, and out of the lab. André then pulled out his custom Holo-Caster, and loaded up a Holographic image of the Kalos map. "Now that we have that out of the way, we can begin! I know the Professor suggested we go to Camphrier Town, but I think we should head to Santalune City first. There is a Gym there, and I know some of you are probably interested in doing that, non? I am not interested in such things myself. I am already an accomplished Movie Star. What are badges going to prove? I am doing this to become a Master of Fairy type Pokemon, and make new friends in the process." As he started walking towards Route 4, he thought about the fact that there was a Gym in Lumiose City, located inside the Prism Tower itself. That Gym had a reputation of kicking people out who didn't have enough badges. And the Prism Tower was dealing with a power outtage at the moment. It was unfortunate, because the tower looked beautiful at night when it was all lit up. It was a romantic sight to behold. Maybe it would be fixed the next time they came back here,

    Michael Sky
    Lumiose City; Cafe Soleil --> Sycamore Labs --> Route 4
    Party: (Hannah)


    The mysterious girl withdrew her Misdreavus without a word and carried on her way. Michael slunk away from behind the girl and regained his composure quickly. "Well, it was nice to meet you!" His attention was diverted to a fiery looking fellow with an... intense hairstyle. He quickly conversed with Andre about beauty or something, Michael couldn't tell. The man seemed familiar and kind enough, but Michael felt that the things that he was saying were somewhat off-putting. Hannah seemed to feel so as well, growling softly as she sat on Michael's shoulder. Nonetheless, he seemed to be a good soul and had left without issue, so Michael put him out his mind. As quickly as the man had left, the group started to migrate towards Sycamore Labs.




    Michael had once been to Professor Rowan's lab in Sandgem Town. Sycamore Labs was absolutely nothing like it. All Michael could think of was "posh." That was the only word that could possibly sum up the labs. The elevator was clearly not for more than one person at a time. Andre went up first, then the Misdreavus girl, then one after another. Michael allowed one after another to go up after him until a new face appeared, a darker skinned young man with a lot of jewelry appeared, going up in the elevator as well. Michael presumed he was another addition to the group, simply a bit late. Finally, Michael ascended into the labs.

    Michael had seen pictures of Professor Sycamore, so he immediately recognized him. Despite claiming to "spare you the long speech," he was very long-winded. Still, Michael appreciated his love for Pokemon that permeated his voice. He was surprised to hear that he was giving them a starter Pokemon, despite the fact that he already had Hannah. Michael was suddenly struck with crippling indecision. Should he choose a Fire type to increase his offensive coverage? The Lizard Pokemon, Charmander, evolved into a Fire and Flying type, which would assist with Steel and Fighting types, though he couldn't remember the name. Fennekin evolved into a Fire and Psychic type, which would help with Fighting and Poison types. Froakie evolved into a Water and Dark types, which would cover his Ghost weakness. But Chespin and Bulbasaur were so adorable! And no matter which he chose, someone would be left behind. Michael was torn. Hannah noticed this indecision and slapped Michael across the face. Michael was ripped back to reality. "hehe, thanks Hannah." He asked himself a question. How could he balance charity with practicality? He looked around. In the pool, floating alone, was a Squirtle. The Squirtle seemed to have been watching the group with anticipation for some time. Michael walked over. The startled Squirtle hopped onto land and hid in its shell. Michael knelt down and patted the shell. "So, you wanted to go on an adventure, but you didn't know how to ask?" The Squirtle peeked out from the shell. "You can come with me, if you would like." The Squirtle smiled, as if asking, "Really?" Hannah nodded approvingly. The Squirtle hopped into Michael's arms and Michael hugged him. "You seem like... oh dear." Michael pulled out a sheet of paper from his bag. In preparation for nicknaming indecision, he had made a list that he would follow quite strictly. "You're a boy, right? I guess your name is... Walt now? Do you like that?" The Squirtle nodded affirmatively, and Michael high fived him.

    ---

    After Michael filled out all his forms and took his picture (which seemed to have a Cleffa and a Fennekin in it for some reason), he picked up a black Pokedex after agonizing over which color to take for about three minutes. He suddenly realized that he had forgotten to take the nickname list with him, leaving it in the pool next to the other Pokemon. He sighed. He was never going to get that back, was he?

    Michael was surprised to hear Professor Sycamore ask them to help him study Mega Evolution. Having lived in Sinnoh his whole life, Michael had never really heard of Mega Evolution, but he decided to take a stone anyway. A clear stone with blue and brown swooshes caught his eye, reminding Michael somewhat of what would be Walt's final evolution form, Blastoise. He took his license and five extra Pokeballs (which he didn't really need), and left the lab with the rest.




    Outside of the lab, they were accosted again by the man with firey hair. A little concerned, but not about to let a single person ruin the day that he began his journey, Michael bounded up to Andre's side. Andre turned to the rest of the group and said "Now that we have that out of the way, we can begin! I know the Professor suggested we go to Camphrier Town, but I think we should head to Santalune City first. There is a Gym there, and I know some of you are probably interested in doing that, non? I am not interested in such things myself. I am already an accomplished Movie Star. What are badges going to prove? I am doing this to become a Master of Fairy type Pokemon, and make new friends in the process." Michael nodded. "Yeah, I think it would be fun to challenge the Gym, myself. What type do they specialize in, again? I tried to study before coming here, but I guess I forgot."




    Walking into Route 4, Michael was suddenly struck by the fresh air. So this is what Fairy Types feel like. The discovery of the Fairy type was relatively new, but Michael had read just about every paper there was on the topic. He remembered the type chart regarding Fairy types, but just about everything else was fuzzy. As he stepped into the tall grass, he was suddenly tackled by a barking Pokemon. A Lillipup! Michael felt his battle-ready analysis mode ignite in his mind. Hm Hannah's attack power and defenses are probably not powerful enough to take down a Lillipup. Plus, Walt probably needs some experience anyway. He took out Walt's Pokeball and released the Squirtle from it. "Walt," Michael said in a cold, calculating tone. "Let's catch this Pokemon, shall we? Use your Tail Whip attack." Walt seemed to be surprised by Michael's new tone, but brushed it off, proceeding with his stat-lowering attack. The Lillipup responded with another Tackle attack. Michael smiled. "You wasted your time, I'm afraid. Squirtle's base Defense stat is far superior to yours. I shall catch you and name you Freya. Now, go, Walt, Tackle as many times as necessary." The Lillipup growled (not the attack) and an exchange of Tackles occurred over the next few minutes. Michael smiled. "That's enough Walt, time to add Freya to the team!" He threw one of his new Pokeballs, which wobbled three times and then clicked. Michael smirked. "All according to plan, Freya." Suddenly, his analytical persona slipped away. "Oh, welcome to the team! Walt! You look horrible! Here, let me fix you up!" Michael rummaged around in his bag. "Now... where are those darn Potions?" Hannah reached out, holding a Potion in her hand. "Thanks, Hannah! Here Walt, rest up." After spraying the Potion on Walt, Michael withdrew him into the Pokeball. He smiled. "Awesome, we've already caught a Pokemon! We're well on our way, Hannah!"

    Katherine Lascelles
    Sycamore's Lab
    Affected RP'er's: Not sure.


    It didn't take too long before one of the scientists gestured for the group to get organized. It appeared some paperwork was next on the list. Katherine sighed, she did not enjoy doing paperwork at all; She usually had people doing that for her. One of the scientists also handed them all Pokeballs and a variety of colorful Pokedexes to choose from. Katherine picked up a pale yellow one she sought out in the many of them. she turned down the Pokeballs, however. she was carrying her own Luxury Balls that her cousin had readied for her after he found out she was gonna pursue a Trainer career. Next, it appeared they were taking mugshots for their Trainer cards. She was used to being taken picture of, and gently brushed her hands through her long hair, giving it a more natural look, falling down over her shoulders. She then sat down on the chair in front of the camera, and noticed Andre's Pokemon being pretty quirky, trying to infiltrate everyones picture. "Deal with it." she told Persephone. "Skuuuull!" She hoo'ed, raising her arms in a scary way, making a grimace to scare off Andre's Pokemon. Unforunatly, the picture was taken more or less right at that second. Looking at the picture they chose, she saw that she was sitting elegantly, flashing her beautiful smile towards the camera like she had done oh so many times before, while Persephone was more of an intimidating prescence. An odd contrast which made the both of them laugh. There were no Clefairies in the picture, which made her let out a small sigh in relief.

    Sometime during her picture being taken, which she became aware of now, a new face showed up. “Um, hi, everyone! I’m Carmelo, and this is my pal, Chanel… We aren’t too late, are we?” he said. He looked pretty plain, and has a natural cuteness to him. He was also accompanied by a Snorunt. "You know, I understand wanting to be fashionably late, but this is a bit much, non? I can only guess that something... happened on the way here? It is no problem, you are here now, and that is all that matters. The more the merrier!" Andre said in response to the new guy. Being finished with her picture, she walked over to the two. "Don't listen to him, Casual is cute." she said, reaching him her hand. "My name is Katherine, and this is Persephone.". She then gestured to Persephone who was floating next to her, eeriely eyeing down both the newcomer and his Snorunt.

    The presentations were cut somewhat short tho, as Sycamore himself started speaking again. "Now that we have all of that taken care of, I would like to ask you all for your help in solving the Kalos region's biggest mystery." As he said this, an assistant was putting out a bunch of multicolored balls on the desk. They looked like marbles only bigger. "The secret and potential of Mega Evolution, a new kind of evolution that occurs in battle! On the desk right now are Mega Stones. We are still uncertain as to how they work, but we do know that they are an important clue. You each may choose one for yourselves."

    Katherine was familiar with the Mega Evolution term, as she knew a few trainers from Laverre being capable of utilizing it. she had learned about a few potential candidates for mega evolution, and eyed out the stone she was looking for. Their coloration was pretty similar, so it was difficult telling some of them apart. She eventually found what she was looking for: A purple Mega stone with a slightly darker purple and red streak. According to her knowledge, this was used to mega evolve Gengars, which she had every intention on obtaining at some point on her journey.

    "If you're investigating Mega Evolution, why don't you check out Camphrier Town? That town has a lot of history--You might find a hint there.", the professor continued aftr a short while. Katherine found it weird that he was getting them to do his research, as it seemed like it would be a lot more beneficial for him to do so himself. It wasn't as if the group was gonna come back here at any point anyway.

    "Now listen, if you visit many different places, you will probably see Pokemon with many ways of living, and meet people with many ways of thinking. First, accept the ways of living and thinking that sometimes conflict with your own, and think about what's truly important. This will truly broaden your horizons. I want you all to be the best trainers you can be." he continued, with a speech about.. morals 101, it seemed.

    "My fourth grade teacher used to say this kind of stuff during her lectures.... I hated that woman." Katherine said, and shrugged at the memory.

    after this, some more stuff was presented, and some stuff about other things were said, Katherine wasn't really paying attention as she had gotten a text message. after answering, she saw that Andre was heading to the elevator on his way down again. She waited until the elevator came back up, and stepped in. Once again feeling a bit anxious about the tight space as it went down.

    "... That is a wonderful thing indeed. You are one of the chosen ones. I have learned as much as I can about Pokemon to help build a brighter future." She heard as she came to the first floor again. As they came into view, she saw Andre was talking to the Pyroar guy from earlier. "Professor Sycamore has taught me so much. Now listen, it is vital that this world become a better place. And the people and Pokemon chosen to make this world better must work tirelessly to achieve this goal. Well, I must be off. Please give Professor Sycamore my best. My desire... is for a more beautiful world!" he finished off before heading out of the building, leaving Andre behind. she walked up next to him.

    "Still...I wonder what kind of beautiful world Pyroar-Guy desires...In this great big Kalos region, there are many different Pokémon. I hope getting a Pokédex gives you a chance to learn about them." she said as she looked towards the exit where the man had left.

    They waited until the rest of the group had arrived before Andre took out his holo Caster to show a map of the region. "Now that we have that out of the way, we can begin! I know the Professor suggested we go to Camphrier Town, but I think we should head to Santalune City first. There is a Gym there, and I know some of you are probably interested in doing that, non? I am not interested in such things myself. I am already an accomplished Movie Star. What are badges going to prove? I am doing this to become a Master of Fairy type Pokemon, and make new friends in the process." he said. Katherine scoffed. "Badges are a symbol that you, as a trainer, actually know what you're doing. To become the master Fairy, you should at the very least have like... 4." she said in a friendly tone to hide her sarcasm and disbelief. "My hometown has a Fairy-Type Gym Leader, and if you one day manage to defeat her? Then maybe you have some talent after all." she finished with a smile, before heading out of the building.

    "Oh! There is a terrible witch in that house who spewed her poison over me,
    and scratched me with her long fingernails."

    Solaris Hernandez
    Sycamore Labs -> Route 4
    Party: X (Riolu), Aria (Chespin)


    Solaris just waited and talked with Aria and X while the others did their stuff. She had already finished up with the photo thing, getting the Pokéballs, and choosing a Pokédex. She saw that Mike was having a hard time to choose his, mostly for color. Solaris just picked the first one that caught her eye: a blue one with yellow lines. It was mostly because it reminded her of X, and Solaris liked Riolu's coloration. Totally not a reference to something.

    When everyone else was done, the professor then asked if they could help with researching Mega Evolution. She perked up and listened intently. She could help her dad with his research too, seeing as he and the professor knew each other and both studied the subject. She did notice some found it odd that he was asking their help, mostly from how they weren't really paying attention, but Solaris didn't think much of it. She knew why Sycamore would ask them: he needed Trainers with strong bonds with their Pokémon and he wasn't one.

    He suggested that they go to Camphrier Town and then he offered various Mega Stones. Solaris's smile was ridiculously big as she searched feverishly among the stones. Eventually, she found her target and quickly plucked it from its spot. She examined just to be extra sure it was the one she wanted. It looked like a catseye marble with a pale orange background and a blue and red "eye". Yup, it was a Lucarionite. She had X put it inside her bag.

    She had Aria walk by her side, as they agreed earlier that she'll stay outside her Pokéball but didn't want to have Solaris carry her. She waited for her turn to the elevator and when everyone gathered back on the first floor, André said that they're heading for Santalune because it had a Gym. As if she wasn't happy enough, now she looked liked she was going to burst.

    "Really? Can't wait to get there! I'm gonna challenge the Gym first thing when we're there!" Then she thought for a moment. "After healing and resting up from any battles we do while getting there."

    She also heard André mention about wanting to be a Fairy-type specialist. The thought of specializing wasn't a bad idea. It certainly meant that you'd be an expert in that type and thus know their strengths and weaknesses. But did she want to? She gave it some thought...then she shook her head. She didn't care for typing, as long as she was friends with that Pokémon, then they can be on her team and she'd do her very best to train them. That reminded her...

    She said to André with honest curiosity, "Do we think we could battle sometime? I want to see what Fairy-types can do." Especially since they're effective against Fighting-types, like Riolu.

    Though she wasn't sure if André heard her.

    --

    Route 4 was a rather plain uh...route. Trees, grass, that kind of stuff. But to Solris, it was like paradise. She took a deep breath in then let it out. After being in a city, she liked some fresh air. Though, granted, Lumiose was one of the cleaner cities, she still missed the greenery. And wide spaces. She liked wide spaces with few buildings, less things to worry about breaking when battling.

    She looked down to see Aria was enjoying it too. Speaking of battles...

    "Hey, Aria," she said. The Chespin looked up to her. "Is it all right if I test your strength?"

    She smiled and nodded.

    Solaris smiled too. "Good!"

    She looked around for a good spot and eventually found one rather close to the route's entrance. Then she took off her duffelbag, got her Eskrima staff from it and gave it to X. The Riolu jumped down from his perch and sat nearby. She spun her staff a little for a short warm up before going into a battle stance a few feet away from Aria.

    "All right. Ready Aria?"

    Aria just stared at her like she was nuts with her mouth slightly agape. She looked back and forth between Solaris and her staff. She waited patiently as the Grass-type processed what was going on. Aria looked to X and the Riolu said a few things, explaining. Aria blinked and then looked back at her. After a few more moments, she shook her head then looked at her with determination.

    "Chespin!" she shouted.

    Solaris just smiled.

    Both gave their battle cries as they attacked.

    ...

    Solaris grunted and groaned when she landed on her back. She heard Aria shout in worry, to which she just chuckled. She propped herself up and smiled at the Chespin on her stomach.

    With a cheeky grin, she said, "Heh heh, don't worry, I'm fine. I've had worse. I'm glad you got used it quickly."

    She laughed when the Grass-type sighed in exasperation. They had fought for a few minutes at most, with Aria at first unsure how to attack her Trainer. Besides, she wasn't trying to win and Aria wasn't used to the thought of fighting a person, so she didn't go all out. She laughed even louder when she saw Aria was slapping X for snickering at her.

    Solaris stood up and said, "Okay, okay. Stop it you two." She neared them and got her duffelbag. "Let's catch up with the others."

    Aria huffed and X said something to her. She guessed he apologized as Aria calmed down. Solaris let her arm out. X took the cue and climbed up and back onto his spot on her head. She put her bag back on and with Aria by her side, finally follwed down the route after the others. She wasn't sure if anyone saw her, but she couldn't help but smirk. She could imagine the looks on their facesif they did.
