    You were looking around the meadows at the very beginning of your bug-catching crusade, and you spotted three objects poking out of some bushes that looked out of the ordinary, and you decided that, instead of opting to wait for some rarer bug Pokemon, you weren’t that picky; you might as well go for what’s in front of you. So you planned to have Jake sneak up on the bugs, then surprise them.

    Well, being a cat Pokemon, Jake’s superb stealth abilities allow it to sneak up very quietly without disturbing any of the possible bugs within the bushes. Then you gave the signal, and your Meowth reared up then gave a very loud Growl grabbing the attention of a few people. As for the objects, the Weedle and Wurmple concealed in the bushes definitely got spooked and scurried off further into the bushes, escaping your attack, but the Y-shaped object wasn’t going to get away, as Jake Bit into… something wooden. You see him pull out a red, Y-shaped stick, and the both of you feel a little embarrassed in front of the onlookers, whom you can see holding back a few giggles.

    So much for your first battle! The good news: you won! The bad news: it wasn’t against a Pokemon. Well, nothing to do but shrug it off and move on. You come to another set of bushes next to the forest, and three more things catch your eye. You again see two yellow spikes jut out of the bushes, though not as much as the last two spikes you saw, so they might not mean another Wurmple was hiding there. Next was a finely designed web made of silk; maybe it had an occupant? Finally, there was… some sort of purple fuzz with a foot sticking out of it, it was really weird. After failing to get a bug previously, you needed to be a little more careful choosing what to attack this time.

    What will Megh do?




    Megh shakes her head in bitter defeat. A stick?! She thought for sure that'd be one of those Caterpie things she sees all the time. Oh God, the way the entire field was laughing at her... she nearly cried! Well, not again, Megh thinks to herself. No, I won't let it happen again! I'll prove I can catch a Pokemon just the same as them! Still feeling somewhat defeated, she creeps over to the new bush.

    "A web, huh? That's interesting. Let's go for that one," she muses.
    "Mya," says Jake, nodding in agreement. Megh can't help but feel sorry for the little cat. He got the brunt of the embarrassment. Although he is lazy, he still has a good spirit, and quivers with as much enthusiasm as he did with the first attempt. He fixes the bush with a stare only a cat could pull off.

    Looking around to make sure there aren't any onlookers this time, Megh whispers to Jake, "The surprise tactic didn't work, so go up to it all stealthy like before, then pounce on the web and pin it down so that whatever made it won't escape. Then, give 'em a scratch and we'll go from there." Jake nods, and once again drops to his belly, gliding through the grass like an Ekans. Megh fumbles with one of the two Poke Balls she had, feeling unsure of herself. What if the web is empty or something? She makes no effort to chase out the bad thoughts this time, as she very well knows they could be true...

    Celebii151: A change of scenery brings you from the mountainous path to the wooded area of Adventure Path. After chasing Valerius who is chasing a Buneary here, you decide to search the forest. Your initial findings of your immediate surroundings are that a lot of Pokemon and possibly people have been walking around, possibly living here.

    As you look around the travelled forest floor, you can see bits of fur on a twig. Upon further inspection of the blue fur you feel that it's cool to the touch and even a little wet. Valerius walks up and inspects the clump of fur you are inspecting. She sniffs it and backs away. Out of the corner of your eye you can see her looking around intently and sniffing the air around her. She turns to her left and starts to run away. Wondering what she is up to you follow. A few yards away from you, you can see her barking at a tree. She's looking up the trunk, front paws resting on it. You finally catch up to her and begin to calm her down. She's still looking up, so you look up too. On a branch in that tree, you see the blue creature whose fur you inspected earlier. The creature in the tree has large ears, a club on its tail, and what looks like a geyser coming out of its head. The Panpour's eyes also look closed.

    "POUR!" the Panpour cries out upon seeing you. It begins to panic, pacing on the branch. The Panpour appears to be young, based on the sound of its voice and how much it's panicking. It unleashes Water from its mouth looking like it was fired from a gun. Although the attack was weak, you and Valerius still dodge it. "pour!" the frightened monkey calls out again. Hoping to scare you both off, Panpour stares at Valerius trying its best to intimidate her. The Leer causes her to pause for a second, but Panpour follows that up with another weak Water Gun. The attack misses Valerius. What will you do?
    After the initial encounter with the male Buneary earlier, Cele and Valerius decided to continue exploring this new part of Adventure Path. Cele began to walk a bit further inside, looking up to see if he could spot any bird Pokemon. The skies and the canopy trees seemed empty for now, and Cele didn't even hear a single chirp. "Val, maybe we should move on to a different area. It looks as if there are no wild Pokemon here, for now."

    Cele turned around to leave, when he spotted something blue in the corner of his eye. Walking towards it, he identified it as fur, that felt damp and cool. Cele put the fur to Valerius' nose so she could sniff out the source. Valerius sniffed it, and began running in some direction. Cele struggled to keep up with her, before she stopped in front of a tree and barked at it wildly. Cele stopped behind her, panting heavily.

    Looking up, Cele noticed a primate-like creature, with a blue tuft on its head and tail and beige body and arms. His Pokedex was already in his hand from a previous encounter, so he quickly scanned the Pokemon. The Pokedex came to life and began to speak. Panpour, the Spray Pokémon. The water stored inside the tuft on its head is full of nutrients. Plants that receive its water grow large. "Wow, so that's a Panpour. A Water-Type Pokemon, I assume." Cele's suspiscions were confirmed as the Panpour fired a Water Gun at Cele and Valerius, though they both managed to dodge it. The Spray Pokemon tried its hand an ineffective Leer move, which barely intimidated Valerius or Cele at all. Panpour tries another Water Gun at Cele and Valerius, which they easily dodge.

    "This Panpour sure is feisty, though it seems a bit young." Cele observes. "If it wants a battle, we'll give it one!" Cele said, grabbing a Pokeball from his belt and enlarging it. He tossed it towards the tree the Panpour was in, and the Pokemon held inside emerged. A blue turtle like Pokemon rotated on its shell while squirting out a Water Gun. It let out a joyful 'Squirtle!' upon seeing its trainer and then noticed a Panpour on the tree in front of it. "Yes, Neptune, you're going to battle it." Cele said. "Don't worry, this'll be easy for you. A Water-Type for a Water-Type." Neptune just rolled his eyes at awaited orders. "Okay, Neptune, first order of business would be to get it on the ground. A Water Pulse should be sufficient for that. After, hit it with a Skull Bash and follow up with a Dynamicpunch." Cele commanded.

    TutorX: While taking a break at the lake, you observe a Deerling emerge from the forest across the lake to drink some water. It is then struck by a Jumpluff that’s floating out-of-control, and the Deerling falls into the lake. It’s quite panicked and thrashing and splashing about in the water, which attracts a Blue-Striped Basculin.

    Immediately you decide to go rescue it by jumping into the lake to save the time of running around it. Zoomer, on the other hand, stands by the shore and watches thinking it would have gone more smoothly if he were helping. Despite your quick swimming, the Basculin is naturally faster. It’s closing in on the Deerling, while you just barely reach the center of the lake. Zoomer decides to act and fires a multi-colored beam from his horn, which is flashing like a signal light.

    The beam hits Basculin on its dorsal fin, and it gets thrown off course. It submerges momentarily to collect itself and resurfaces to look around. The Basculin sees you swimming towards the Deerling, and it decides that you’ll be an easier target. It begins to quickly swim towards you, looking hungry and upset for being attacked.

    Just then Zoomer notices a man dressed in a dark green and tan uniform appear and summon a purple star-shaped Pokémon from a Pokeball. He hears the man say to it, “Starmie, use Telekinesis on the Deerling to get it out of the water!” Zoomer can’t see where Starmie’s face was, but he can sense the psychic energy being used. Starmie’s core glows, and Zoomer sees the panicking Deerling being lifted out of the lake. It begins to calm down once it could see it was hovering over land. Starmie places it on the shore and releases its hold on the deer. Almost instantly, the Deerling runs back into the safety of the trees.

    Zoomer turns its attention back to the Forest Ranger, who turns his attention to the raucous in the water. “Starmie, Telekinesis again, on the boy in the water! Get him out of there!” he orders. Once again, the Starmie’s core glows, radiating the same psychic energy as before. Suddenly you feel yourself being lifted out of the water, floating over to the shore by Zoomer, and landing on the ground.

    With nothing foreign and tasty in the lake, the Basculin submerges, feeling defeated and still hungry.

    The Forest Ranger returns Starmie to its Pokeball, and he starts walking over to you. “Quick thinking jumping in the water like that, but perhaps your Ralts there would have been more effective with its attacks,” the man says to you. “You must be cold. Take this towel and dry off.” He hands you a towel. “While you are free to explore this area, I must caution you that the fish Pokémon that inhabit these lakes have been pretty vicious lately. That Basculin was just a baby. The full-grown ones are much nastier. I was actually coming to this lake to post a few warning signs. Maybe you could post them here for me. I have many more signs to post at the other lakes, so I could head directly over to the other lakes.” The Forest Ranger reaches in his backpack and withdraws four signs and hands them over to you, and you exchange the towel for the signs. “If you could place them at, perhaps, corners of the lake, that would be great. You’d be helping me out a lot.”

    You look at one of the signs that says:

    CAUTION!
    DANGEROUS POKEMON
    SPOTTED IN THESE LAKES
    SWIM WITH CAUTION

    “At some point I’d like to figure out what is causing this, but for now warning the public must come first,” the Forest Ranger says. “I must get going to the other lakes before sunset. I’ll swing by this lake on my way back to the station, since the station is through that clearing over there,” pointing at the clearing on the far side of the lake. Thanks again for your help!” The Forest Ranger waves at you and walks away.

    Looks like you have four signs to post around this lake. Here might be a good place to start, seeing a path nearby. Then, perhaps across the lake opposite this spot for one. Then the clearing heading towards the station might be a good place for the third, and finally across the lake again opposite that spot should make up the four corners. What will you do?
    Niles started growling and splashing at the Basculin heading towards him. It had stopped going for the grassy Pokemon and was headed for him now. Niles didn't notice that the Pokemon wasn't even there anymore. As he continued to snarl at the Pokemon he felt himself being lifted out of the water. He looked back to see Zoomer gawking at a man in a foresty uniform with a Starmie, it looked like a Pokemon Ranger. Niles knew that if you ever needed help in the wild, those were the people to look out for. Niles landed on the ground, wondering what got him up there. He turned back to see if the Basculin was still there, so he could finish it off. Sadly it was not.

    “Quick thinking jumping in the water like that, but perhaps your Ralts there would have been more effective with its attacks,” The Ranger suggested. Niles just smiled, he felt proud from the compliment, but didn't really notice the important advice that went along with it. Niles takes a towel from the Ranger, with a nod of thanks. He listens to the Ranger's warning about the fish in the area and the request to help put up signs to warn others. Jamie smiles widely holding the 4 signs as the Ranger walks off.

    "I get to be a junior Ranger!" Niles screamed excitedly to Zoomer. The Ralts just tilts his head slightly, in confusion. Niles handed three of the signs to Ralts and planted the fourth one into the ground, with the message facing away from the lake. Niles used all his weight to try to push it into the ground.

    "Zoomer use a grass knot on this sign to keep it in place." Jamie ordered. Zoomer flustered with signs heard this and his eyes started to glow green.

    Rather than heed an irritated Skarmory’s wishes, you and Flare decide this was a challenge that a trainer and her Pokemon should not back down from and face the Armor Bird head on. Seeing it was being challenged to a battle, Skarmory stood up and squawked to Flare, “All right, I warned you. Prepare to be tomorrow’s breakfast!

    And with that, Skarmory took flight and unleashed two sharp disks of Air; one of them Cuts into Flare for some damage. The other one struck the top of the mouth of the cave and caused it to close, blocking off your chance to escape being bird feed. Seeing as how you couldn’t leave now, there was nothing to do but continue the battle. Your Vulpix began your strategy by Confusing Skarmory with a sinister Ray of light, and the Steel-type was successfully dazed. The next thing Skarmory did was flap its wings and release some Spiky shards of metallic feathers… but in its confusion, it unleashed its attack off to the right of its target; as long as you stayed away from that area, you’d be able to avoid the problem altogether. Of course, Flare only needed to stay at her current position for her next move; she inhaled and exhaled intense Heat at Skarmory, who dodged to the right but got clipped by the attack, the tip of its wing feeling the Wave of intense flames as it charges in to Attack, guided by Fury to overcome its confusion and hit the Vulpix four times with its beak, then flew back, still looking pristine despite its slightly charred face and wing. Flare had slightly more health than Skarmory, but had slightly less energy than the Armor Bird. So far, it could go either way, but a lot was at stake for both sides.

    What will Charlotte do?
    [/color]
    Charlotte gritted her teeth as she watched the Skarmory take flight and attack Flare using discs of air, followed up by shooting some spikes, though those went off-course, thanks to Flare's well-timed Confuse Ray. However, the Skarmory quickly recovered using Fury Attack, foiling Charlotte's plan. As Flare stood facing the Skarmory, which had flown back, she began to brainstorm a new strategy.

    Just then, a light bulb lit up inside Charlotte's head. "That's it!" Charlotte exclaimed. "Flare, change of plans. First use Hynosis, and then use Fire Spin to trap the Skarmory. If he wakes up, just use Hypnosis again, and if the Fire Spin wears out, just use Fire Spin again - with it trapped, it's bound to faint sometime! If it escapes, then just use Heat Wave again, okay?"

    Charlotte crossed her fingers as Flare prepared to launch her first attacks, and hoped that her strategy wasn't as stupid as she thought it was.

    Charminions: As you travel along Adventure Path, you look down to your chosen partner for this adventure, Osage. He shows no signs of wearing out, but you decide to sit on a nearby rock and have some refreshing water. With Osage being a newer Pokemon of yours, you feel this is a great chance to bond with him; however, he shows signs of the contrary after turning down your offering him water. You signal to Osage that it's time to continue your journey. You share with Osage that you're looking for a bird Pokemon, and that seemed to catch Sneasel's eye. You start to wonder how you'll get through to him. At least he listens to you like when you say you're leaving.

    You look up in the sky searching for one of the bird Pokemon this mountain is famous for. You don't see anything flying about, but you do see the sky is clear. You look forward to check where you're going. Along the side of the road, you see various plants and flowers. Your eye spies a particular bush to your right. Hanging off the bush, you find a purple berry. You decide to approach it; maybe Osage would like it. As you do, a short white creature pokes its head through a nearby bush. This pig-nosed creature, looks at you and over to the Cornn Berry. Its eyes widen at the sight of the berry, and it leaves the cover of the bush. You see your chance to grab the berry first and take it. The Mankey sees you pick it, and tears fill its eyes.

    The Mankey looks on as you make an attempt to give it to Osage. Out of the corner of your eye, you see a rock sailing your way. You get out of the way, but Osage wasn't lucky enough. It smacked him down to the ground. Looking back at the Mankey, it seems pleased with itself. All of a sudden it disappears from where it was and appears between you and Osage. It looks at you, with big tear-filled eyes, and looks at and touches the Cornn Berry. It manages to get its whole hand on the berry. Coveting that berry, Mankey grabs it from your hand; boasts a little; and scampers off into the woods. What will you do?
    Sweet, thanks!

    Charm and Osage continued traveling through the Adventure Path, hoping to find flying pokemon to catch. Charm gives a frown as he looks towards the sky and finds it to be clear of any pokemon. Looking back down on the road, Charm sees a bush to his right with a strange purple berry.

    "Oh cool, a berry!" Charm says and he moves towards it to get a closer look. He spots a monkey pokemon with a pig nose as he approaches the bush. A Mankey, eh? Whatever. he thinks to himself, obviously disinterested as he grabs the berry.

    "Oh, so this is a Cornn Berry," he says, "here Osage, I got this for you." Before Osage could respond, a rock was soaring our way, "Oh ****!" Charm ducks away. Unfortunately the rocks smacks Osage down. Charm curses under his breath as the Mankey cheers before appearing in front of Charm and Osage. The Mankey's eyes fill with tears as he looks at the Cornn Berry and touches it. Before Charm can react, the wild Mankey covets the berry out of his hand and runs off into the woods. Charm finds himself dumbfounded at how this all happened so quickly and then shrugs it off, "let's keep moving, Osage, we got plans to follow." The Sneasel gets up, rubbing his forehead before filling with anger. "Ohh no, don't think about it Osage. That little monkey means nothing." But it was too late, Osage was already running off into the woods to chase after the pesky Mankey for his revenge.

    "... God damnit," Charm sighs as he trails after Osage and the two scurry into the woods in pursuit of the Mankey.

Because of this, the recent influx of tourists in the vicinity have their sights set upon this area, specifically in the hope of finding some of the rarer Pokémon in the land. Be warned, the Pokémon nesting here are likely to be fierce and will protect their babies at all costs.

    Adventure Path: Bustling with bird’s nests, this long and jagged path seems to spiral up and around the mountain leading to Eyrie Peak. Several caverns cluster the trail, all inhabited by flying types.
    So here I am, wearing one of my favorite video game t-shirts (today I took my black "Hyrule symbol" one), long jeans and white running shoes, have packed my brand new backpack and have my trusty Poochyena, Max, walking along side of me, ready to go off on my very first trip as a Pokémon Trainer. I have waited for 10 years after I have reached to legal age to become one. What took me so long, you ask? It's simple, really: I didn't really saw the point back then, I was simply happy to have my Poochenya, Max, with me, and go on with my simple life. But I got bored, and tired of this routine-filled life. Tired of being with all those people who I trusted, just to turn their backs on me for no reason, no explanation... Thankfully, Max was and still is always with me, and I have found a way to finally get away of all the hassle: travel far away from civilization, and make actual friends that would last and worth of my trust: Pokémon.

    Since this would be my first outing as a trainer, what a better place to go other than an area with "adventure" right into its name? The air is crisp, and all you could hear is the random chirping of the birds lurking around Mountain Eyrie. I really have the feeling my choice was the right one to start.

    "It's nice, isn't it?" I ask Max after I took a big gulf of fresh air, "it's sure a big change compared to the suburbs at home."

    He joyfully barks in response.

    "I'm sure we'll found some good wild Pokémon to practice battling, maybe one to catch too!"

    He simply wags his tail, smiling right back at me.

    "Well," I stare at the long road, "here goes nothing!"

    So we walked on the Adventure Path, hoping it will live up to its name.

    Having successfully flushed out the picnic thief, it was time for you to get into the battle. And you’d start going on offense by being a little reckless. Bishop inhales and breathes a Wave of flames and hot air into the bushes, the Heat in that area intensifying and burning the bushes. No way was this going to be the prelude to some heavenly vision, but instead, out comes the little Karrablast! Clearly it didn’t expect you to be that reckless, and it paid for that by taking severe damage, though no lasting burns were inflicted. Then the bug looked at the burning bushes and became filled with anger; how dare you have such disregard for the environment! It directed its Fury towards your Hoothoot, Attacking it with reckless abandon and Bishop got hit by the assault twice for some pretty good damage per hit because of the lowered defenses. Now it was your Hoothoot’s turn to get mad; that horn really poked into some sensitive spots! Instead of getting physical, however, he opts to throw a tantrum, causing an Uproar that reverberated for a few yards, and dealing some solid damage, most of it being to Karrablast’s ears. Now it was ticked! First you two cause arson, now you’re waking up the whole neighborhood with your racket? That owl was going to pay! It again Attacks Furiously, this time getting in three hits while Bishop’s lowered defenses were taking their toll on him. The still burning bushes set the mood for where the battle was currently at. Karrablast looked like it still had some fight left in him, but it was still heavily injured and wasn’t going to take a whole lot more punishment. Bishop hadn’t taken as much damage, but he was starting to get pretty exhausted from doing those last two moves, and he was completely drained of the fire needed for his Heat Wave attack. Not only that, he was hooting pretty hoarsely; those attacks, especially Uproar, must have strained his voice a little.

    What will Joshua do?

    Well, this one was going to be nasty. And now that he'd accidentally set fire to this place... Oh dear, he was going to get himself in trouble. How rash he'd been. Joshua grabbed his second Pokéball off his belt, enlarged it, and tossed it in the air. The sphere opened, revealing a small blue tortoise, his trusted partner Aegis the Squirtle.

    "Go Aegis! Put out the flames with your Water Gun attack, or Muddy Water if you think it would be any better! As for you Bishop, engulf yourself in an Aqua Ring, then attack Karrablast with a Peck - we need to finish this one quickly!"

    What have I done... I came here for a simple picnic and it's ended up with me burning down a field... I... He was dumbfounded at how quickly all this had happened. Who was really responsible here though; the man or the bug?

    Default Adventures in Astoria by Dark Searchman, Part 3

    Sorry to all those who didn't get to reply before I updated. I just wanted to get this posted before I started packing up for a trip to Indiana. I won't get back home until next Thursday, so that'll give most of you plenty of time to reply to your current update. I may be able to write updates while I'm in Indiana, but just sit tight guys!

    The Divine Woodland


    Magus Falls

    Thorndrop – {Your update is here}



    Eyrie Peak


    Adventure Path

    Flame Mistress

    Locked in a life-and-death battle against a Skarmory you decide to change up your strategy so you could overwhelm the Armor Bird. Flare tries to give Skarmory a Hypnotic stare, but since it was flying around too much, she couldn’t make eye contact for a long enough period of time. However, it was starting to get drowsy again and fly lower. It still had the speed to fly in and slam into Flare with its Steel Wings for a good hit. Flare responds with a Fiery breath that Spins around the Skarmory and traps it for a while. Skarmory dared not try to escape and risk heavy damage from the flames, but it still shot out stars that were Swift enough to avoid making contact with the flames and hit your Vulpix for some good damage. With Skarmory trapped and taking slight damage from the flaming vortex, Flare tries Hypnosis again, but Skarmory was too preoccupied with how to deal with the flames to make eye contact. The Armor Bird was able to cook up a plan, however, using two more disks of Air to Cut through the flames and aim at Flare. She dodges but gets clipped by one of them on her right hind leg, making it slightly painful to walk on that leg but not too bad. The flames surrounding Skarmory were disturbed by the Air Cutter attack, so Skarmory doesn’t suffer extra damage for now but still remains trapped in the Fire Spin. Now Skarmory is slightly ahead in health, but what was worse was that Flare was starting to look exhausted from the Fire attacks she was using, though she still had plenty of fire left inside her for more.

    What will Charlotte do?



    Posy Field

    Son_of_Shadows

    You really regretted using that Heat Wave because now you were responsible for causing a forest fire here. You attempt to make things right by calling out your Squirtle, Aegis, and have him put out the fires. Aegis tries shooting out Water at the speed of a Gun on the fire, but only part of the fire was put out. He had to act faster than that! So, he used Water energy to create a wave of Mud that splashed over the burning bushes, putting out almost all of the fires. All it took was another Water Gun, and the fire was successfully put out.

    Meanwhile, Bishop was busy forming 10 Aqua spheres that created a Ring of water to gradually heal him back up, but the opposing Karrablast took the opportunity to close in on the Hoothoot and Attack with its Horn to deal some more good damage and pop two of the spheres. Bishop returns the favor, Pecking the bug and coming close to making a KO. Still, Karrablast wasn’t going to give up! It still had plenty of Fury left to Attack Bishop, but this time Bishop got lucky and dodged all the hits, though another two watery spheres were popped. With another sphere entering Bishop for some needed healing, there were 5 spheres left, giving your Hoothoot a clear health advantage, but he was getting exhausted. Then again, Karrablast didn’t look like it was going to take any more damage before falling, so all you had to do was pray Bishop could finish it off soon.

    What will Joshua do?


    Jolteonjak – {Your update is here.}


    Megh – {If you could link to the post where the purchase of your Pokeballs was confirmed, that would be great. Thanks! =) }

    Your failed attempt at a Caterpie behind you, you encountered more possible bugs and decided to attack the silk web… perhaps its occupant was still there… and not hoping to catch cats like Jake to fill their two or three foot bodies. Your Meowth’s stealth was excellent once again, as nothing looked like it was moving. Then, in a flash… Jake pounced! The pattern of silk and the Pokemon on it weren’t going to go anywhere… after all, this Web was a Spider’s home… and it was time for lunch!

    You see, when Jake had pounced on the sticky silk net, he didn’t count on it being stronger than him, and so the Spider Web simply bounced back with Jake being stuck, his movement being limited to how far the silk strands would let him move. He hissed and spat as he struggled in vain to break free which ended up scaring the Venonat and Wurmple nearby. And then… it was time… the guest of honor had arrived. Dropping slowly from another silk thread to Jake’s level, a green spider with yellow and black legs changed the pattern on its abdomen as to induce fear into Jake, and it worked. Jake’s Face became filled with terror; the idea of being prey instead of predator was a Scary idea, after all! He was trying his best to escape his fate, trying to Scratch the Spinarak, trying to turn this situation around, but he could barely move his paw in front of him much less reach out to get his claws even close enough to the String Spit Pokemon. The String-Spitting Spinarak’s strong sticky silk held Jake in place, and the spider was ready to start sealing the deal.

    What will Megh do?

    You found yourself conversing with a beautiful girl named Leah and her Ludicolo, and you told her you came here to explore, get some samples of things found on the island, and maybe obtain a new friend. You then bring out Trick, your Treecko, and Leah’s eyes light up in response. “Ah, so you have a Treecko! Grass-type Pokemon are my favorite, so I like that you have a Treecko! Say hi, Ludicolo!” she asks her partner.

    Ludicolo!” he greets Trick happily.

    You then suggest that you were willing to help Leah with chores around the house, and you also offered to take her with you on your adventure. She looked away to ignore your blushing, but you could see her smile as she said, “Oh, um, thank you for offering to help, but Ludicolo and I have been living just fine here and have no need for help. However… I would like to help you on your adventure here. I know the area quite well, and I can guide you around to whatever you want. Now, is there anything in particular that you are looking for?”

Very scenic, your chances of running into wild Pokémon here are high as they flock to the area for access to the nearby freshwater lake. A nice spot for a picnic, or just to pass some time.


    Noriko took a deep breath of the fresh air around her. Her Skitty was too excited to stay still, jumping in and out of bushes and rolling on the grass. Noriko laughed at her partner's excitement: Skitty was always at home in the woods, especially around Grass Pokémon. Naturally Noriko had decided that they'd start their journey from the woods and have a look at the lake they had heard so much about. The duo was also hoping to meet some Pokémon on the way, perhaps make a new friend or two.

    Unless Skitty exploded from all her excitement before that...

    Skitty ran to Noriko, covered in leaves and leftovers of grass. She eagerly rubbed against Noriko in an attempt to get her to play in the bushes as well.

    Noriko wasn't exactly planning on literally diving into the wild nature. Instead, she picked Skitty up, brushing some leaves off her precious Pokémon. "You sure are getting into this journey with all your might", she said while Skitty tried to struggle out of Noriko's hold. The woods were simply too inviting to ignore, the smells and textures overwhelming.

    Finally Noriko let Skitty go, the latter already having set sights on a leaf floating in the wind. With a small shake of her head she walked forward with Skitty racing ahead, investigating every new bit of ground and scenery they passed.

    The Trainer made a mental note to herself to give Skitty a proper bath at the next possible opportunity no matter how big a sign of life stains on children and Pokémon were said to be. For now though, the Kitten Pokémon could run around and get herself as dirty as she pleased.

    "I was hoping you could help me catch some pokemon." He took out a pack of chocolate chip cookies, steam still rising from the box's mouth. He hands them over to Leah. "And I can drag my home over here so I can see you each day..." He then looks blankly out the glass portal, staring at a speck in the distance, A floating, upside down citadel drifting around the area, yet far away as to keep anonymity from wildlife while exploring. "First of all, Would you like to come with me on my future adventures?" He manages to say, a small blush pops out, his hand trembling as it heads toward her, carrying the carefully created container. And the other reaches for her palm.

    More thoughts blow through his mind. He feels tired, suddenly... A melody echoes...

    He collapses into a direction gravity constantly leads... Back down within the depths of dreamt worlds.

    "Eep!" Megh squeals as she paces back and forth, panicking. "What should I do, what should I do?!" Her friend was about to be eaten by a spider. Oh, what would she do if the other Trainers found out? No, she thinks, that's a selfish thought. I need to help Jake because he's my friend. Her fingers tense around the smooth shape of the Poke Ball (1/2) as fear knots her stomach. Well, he can't move his arms to Scratch, and I still want to catch Spinarak, as selfish as that may be, so Growling to scare it away is out...
    "Meoooowr!" Jake wails.
    "Okay, uh... Jake! Wait till it gets close enough, then Bite it as hard as you can!"
    Jake quickly nods his agreement, then faces the advancing Spinarak, fangs bared.
    Why does it always screw up, Megh can't help thinking to herself as Jake grits his teeth against the arachnid.

    You really regretted using that Heat Wave because now you were responsible for causing a forest fire here. You attempt to make things right by calling out your Squirtle, Aegis, and have him put out the fires. Aegis tries shooting out Water at the speed of a Gun on the fire, but only part of the fire was put out. He had to act faster than that! So, he used Water energy to create a wave of Mud that splashed over the burning bushes, putting out almost all of the fires. All it took was another Water Gun, and the fire was successfully put out.

    Meanwhile, Bishop was busy forming 10 Aqua spheres that created a Ring of water to gradually heal him back up, but the opposing Karrablast took the opportunity to close in on the Hoothoot and Attack with its Horn to deal some more good damage and pop two of the spheres. Bishop returns the favor, Pecking the bug and coming close to making a KO. Still, Karrablast wasn’t going to give up! It still had plenty of Fury left to Attack Bishop, but this time Bishop got lucky and dodged all the hits, though another two watery spheres were popped. With another sphere entering Bishop for some needed healing, there were 5 spheres left, giving your Hoothoot a clear health advantage, but he was getting exhausted. Then again, Karrablast didn’t look like it was going to take any more damage before falling, so all you had to do was pray Bishop could finish it off soon.

    What will Joshua do?

    Fortunately Aegis got to work immediately on extinguishing the fire, but Joshua still felt very humbled by the experience. He'd been incredibly reckless, and nearly paid a big price. He needed to be so much more careful in future... In fact, he was barely paying attention to the battle, but at least he knew Bishop could hold his own against the little bug, especially with his Aqua Ring up. With the flames extinguished, Joshua cast his eyes back to Bishop, and it seemed the battle was entering its final stages. "Good job Aegis, you can come back for now. Bishop, once we win, you can take a nice rest. End this now with a couple of Pecks. That'll teach this little thief."

Should you find yourself in the incredibly fruitful rainforest, who knows what you may encounter.

    Forgotten Ruins: Now completely overrun by deep foliage, they’ve made a suitable home for countless grass types. However, stories have spread of the intricate sanctuaries filled with great riches that lie beyond the vegetation. Riddles were a popularity of the ancients, be sure you’re intelligent enough.
    Alli stumbled through the deep leafage of the Mystic Jungle. Hugged in her arms was her Sableye, Pluto. His head bobbed forward as he drooled slightly. Being held in Alli's arms frequently had this hypnotic effect on him.

    Surrounding them was the lush foliage which spread over the rotting stone ruins. Alli took notice of the immense megaliths that stood elevated around her. She set Pluto down and his senses suddenly returned to him. Rustling through her backpack, Alli pulled out a map and began to gaze over it. Pluto used his renewed awareness in order to grasp his surroundings. The ruins gave off a weird aura that made him feel uncomfortable. He glanced back at his trainer and saw that she was still trying to figure out the map. Pluto sighed, approached, flipped the map upright, and indicated where they were.

    "Ohh! It looks like we've arrive at the Forgotten Ruins," Alli chirped excitedly. A nearby rustling bush startled her, as she dived towards Pluto and squeeze him tightly. Alli froze, her eyes widely fixated on the bush as Pluto fidgeted desperately as he was rather uncomfortably being choked to death. "Sorry Pluto," apologized Alli, who set him down. When nothing emerged from the vegetation, Alli felt comfortable enough to move on. "We should take a look around, but lets make sure to get out of here before dark. I bet you this place is pretty creepy at night." Pluto couldn't shake the feeling that the ruins were eerie enough now. Alli packed up her supplies and began to head onwards. "I bet you there is a ton of hidden treasure in a place like this! And I read in one of my picture books that its guarded by aliens!"

    Pluto doubted this.

    He was about to voice protest concerning their current plans to proceed into the ruins when Alli scooped him gentle back into her arms. He immediately fell back into a comatose state and any conflicting agendas he had were thus silenced.

    Alli and Pluto traversed forward deeper into the Forgotten Ruins.

    Default Jak's Astoria Update #03

    Attention everyone - small request here. If you edit your post, please let me know. When I see replies, I usually get them copied/pasted into a word-processing program (until I get Word...), so I can type updates up at work and/or at home. Also, some of you are starting battles. Please remember to bold your attacks. Limit of 3 moves per Pokemon per update. Thank you! ^_^

    The Island
    ~Island Ports~

    Mon1010: As you and the Johnson brothers parted ways, you hear a woman screaming about being robbed. Another Teddiursa ran through the streets, this one holding a tub of MooMoo Milk Ice Cream. You decided that this was your moment to shine.

    You looked at Shaana with a grin, and she grinned back as if in sync with you. You were able to spot the culprit, heading in the same direction as the last Teddiursa, so you ordered Shaana to yawn a pink bubble of sleep-inducing gas on the Teddiursa. The plan was successful, for in its haste, the Little Bear ran right into the pink bubble, which burst in its face. The Teddiursa began yawning, and its running slowed. Eventually the cub couldn’t take it anymore, and it fell over on the ground asleep.

    Shaana floated over to the sleeping bear, and begins to eat its dream as only a Dream Eater would do. She sees black-and-white images of a pair of Teddiursa playing in the forest. Overhead, a small dark figure glides by. Next, a large, dark figure approaches them, and begins firing Flame Bursts at the sibling cubs. They dodge the attacks, which angers this mysterious creature. It begins spitting more attacks at the Teddiursa, when suddenly a very irate Ursaring runs out from some nearby bushes, right by the Teddiursa, and into the path of the attacks. The force of the flames exploding on Ursaring knock it back past the Teddiursa. The figure stands over the pained Ursaring and summons four darker orbs of fire and unleashes all of them on Ursaring, hitting conveniently inside the ring on its torso. Next Shaana sees darkness.

    The next thing Shaana sees is one Teddiursa looking at a bush adorned with many little berries. It collects as many of the Oran Berries that it can hold and runs away. Next Shaana sees the Teddiursa with the berries trying to give some of them to the Ursaring who was burnt earlier. The wound where the flames hit Ursaring still smoldered and singed and every so often would engulf the Ursaring in flames. Once more, Shaana sees darkness. Shaana shook herself back into reality after the visions she saw.

    In the meantime, you were able to pry the ice cream out of the sleeping Teddiursa's hands. The woman who was first chasing the Teddiursa finally caught up in time to take the ice cream from you. "Thank you so much for getting this back!" she exclaimed happily. "Please stop by my store some time, and I will give you a free cone." The woman walked away with her tub of ice cream cradled in her arms.

    "That was a nice job with that Teddiursa," Frank said all of a sudden. "If you plan on going into the woods at all, I will let you borrow this." He handed you a remote-control-sized gadget. "This is a Pokemon Ranger Beacon. If anything should happen to you, all you do is press this blue button, and a Pokemon Ranger nearby will respond. Like we said earlier, I will be at the shop while Eric is away. He has his PRB with him. If you can find our jar of balm we'd really appreciate it!" Frank turned around again and walked off.

    Just then the Teddiursa woke up. It looked around panicked because the ice cream it stole was missing. It stood up and ran straight to a shop selling Combee Honey. It grabbed a jar and ran quickly ran off before the owner could notice. Shaana floated over to you and attempted to share with you everything it saw in Teddiursa's dream. The Teddiursa was able to make it out of town in the same direction it was originally heading with the jar of honey. What will you do?

    ------------------------------------------------------

    ~The Lakes~

    TutorX: Eager to help the Forest Ranger out, you accept his mission for you with great pride. You decide to get to work posting the signs he left with you. The first sign goes into the ground with ease and also with the help of braces made out of knotted grass thanks for Zoomer.

    You decide next to go to a spot opposite this one across the lake. You pack up your supplies and take the signs from Zoomer. You begin your walk along the shore to the other side of the lake, careful not to go near the water. You pass by the spot where the Deerling emerged from the woods, but you don't see any trace of the Season Pokemon. As you continue walking you look over to the lake wondering if anything else is in there with the Basculin, as it seemed to be quite ferocious.

    More time passes, and you finally get to the other side of the lake. You find a good spot to place the second sign, so you get to work. Like the first sign you shove this sign into the ground using your weight for more force. You notice a big flat rock nearby, so you grab it. Holding it above head, you begin to slowly hammer it down. With the second sign in place you decide to take the rock with you.

    You decide to return to the site of the Deerling emergency, since you noticed a worn path around there when you first passed by. The heat from the afternoon gets to you a little bit, so you take a little break in the shade of the trees. Zoomer sets the signs down and joins you relaxing in the shade. It was a welcomed break. After a few minutes of cooling off, you get back to work. You sink the next sign into the ground. Zoomer helps out by holding onto the post, as you take the rock again and start hammering the sign in.

    You look across to the other side of the lake, where it all started, as you wipe sweat from your brow. All of a sudden, you see a child run down the path towards the lake. From what you can make out, he seems excited to see the lake. You smile watching the child who is now jumping up and down excitedly and yelling. You turn away for a moment to collect your things, and when you do, you also begin to hear spalshing in addition to the yelling. Glancing over you see the boy is in the lake swimming, a perfect remedy to the day's heat. You start your walk to the same spot where the boy is swimming. As you pass the first sign you placed, the boy's fun gets interrupted, and you hear him screaming, "Owwwwwiiiiieeee!" It seems something has injured the boy. What will you do?

    ------------------------------------------------------

    Eyrie Peak
    ~Adventure Path~

    Celebii151: After the discovery of a frightened Panpour in a tree, you decide that it’s time to battle. A couple loud shouts and some inaccurate Water Gun attacks reveal to you that this Panpour is quite young. After seeing those attacks miss, the Panpour continues to pace on its branch.

    You return your Poochyena to its Pokeball and let your Squirtle, Neptune, out figuring a Water against Water battle would be most appropriate. With the Panpour high up in the tree, Neptune’s water attacks would be slightly weakened. You decide that it should come out of the tree. You give orders to Neptune to use Water Pulse to knock it off the limb. Neptune nods and creates an orb of water by waving its hands in a spherical motion, then sends it flying up towards the Panpour. The orb hits Panpour on the chest, and the force of the attack knocks Panpour off the tree. It falls to the ground screaming, "POUR!" once more. Without any confusion it gets up and gets closer facing Neptune.

    On his next order, Neptune tucks his head and begins to charge towards the Panpour, head first. "Stop this battling immediately!" you hear a voice yelling. You turn to see a woman in a white coat running towards you, and you see the Panpour run and leap into her arms. A loud thump disturbs your concentrating on the woman and Panpour as you turn to see that Neptune's head has already connected with the same tree you first spotted the Panpour in. "So, Team Plasma sends you in here to distract us?" she scolds you. She glares are you, seeing Neptune slowly walking back to your side rubbing his head. "Who are you? What are you doing here? This is a scientific research center!"

    Just then you see other primate Pokemon gathering in the area. Lots of Mankey and Primeape, a Pansear, some Pansage, another Panpour, and a Monferno all form a circle around you and the woman. You see the young Panpour holding onto the woman frightened. The surrounding simians all seem upset. What will you do?

    -------------------------------------------------------


    Charminions: While you brush off the theft of the Cornn Berry by the presumably wild Mankey, Osage just cannot shake being attacked. As you make an attempt to keep moving, Osage runs off in pursuit of the berry thief. You follow Osage, in an effort to keep him out of harm's way, should the Mankey decide to turn and fight. The Pig Monkey proves to be a master of the forest swinging from limb to limb speedily while holding onto the berry with its tail. After a few moments of dodging trees, tree trunks, and other flora, the Mankey lands on the ground and continues running as it has run out of trees to swing through. Ahead of you, you see a shallow cave, and the Mankey is running in that direction.

    When you emerge from the trees, you see what the Mankey was looking for. There's a woman in the cave kneeling on the ground tending to what looks like a smooth rock with a ridge along it. "Oh Pigkey, you've returned" she says relieved. The Mankey, now in the cave, walks over to its owner and shows her the Cornn Berry it took. "Hmm, a Cornn Berry? This may help," she examines the berry. "Thank you so much for finding this! Let's see if this will help Trunphan out." She takes the berry from Pigkey and walks over to the smooth rock that now appears to be breathing.

    The woman, dressed in overalls and a pink T-Shirt, stops walking when she senses your presence just inside the cave. "Hello, are you here to help my Donphan out?" she turns and asks hopefully. "He's not been feelng well since I saw him eat a strange leaf. I have the medicine to cure him, but he won't take it," she looks at Trunphan with sorrow in her eyes. "I'm trying to find some berries that he could take with the medicine, but so far he's rejected everything we've given him. I think only his favorite berries will work." She walks over to you, and with her finger pushes her glasses further up on the bridge of her nose, "By the way, my name is Viola. What's yours?" What will you do?

    --------------------------------------------------------

    The Mystic Jungle
    ~Waterfall Valley~

    Myrrh: The newly discovered Surskit, quick to shoot first and ask questions later, prepares to launch more of an onslaught. It skates across the pond to pick up speed, likely for another Quick Attack.

    Meanwhile, you check on Volts to make sure he wasn’t hurt, and he wasn’t; just a little stunned. You give orders for Volts to make his attacks, starting off by growling to show how fierce the EleSquirrel Pokemon truly was. Volts gets on all fours, lifts his tail up in the air, similar to a cat, and grumbles at the Surskit. The Surskit, who at this time, is skating fast on the pond gets distracted by Volts’ growl, and it trips and tumbles at the shore ineffectively using its Quick Attack.

    Quickly Volts begins to charge towards Surskit preparing to attack. Surskit sees the white streak heading for it, and just in the nick of time, it is able to protect itself.

    Surskit returns to the shoreline and begins to scrape its feet in the mud. The mud flies towards Volts, and it slaps it in the face hard. Some of the mud manages to get in Volts' eyes as well. His eyes well up with tears, as his vision is a little blurry from the mud and tears. With Volts sufficiently distracted once more, the Surskit skates out on the cavernous lake in preparation for its next attack. Volts is still rubbing his eyes. What will you do?

    "Damn, this thing ain't pulling any punches!" said Myrrh in astonishment. He did not expect the Surskit to counter Volts' attack the way that it did. "Grr, let's see, that Mud Slap it used was a weak attack, but still very effective against Volts. To top it all off his accuracy took a hit as well...."

    "Pachu!" Exclaimed Volts, half because of the pain in his eyes and half to get his trainer's attention, for Myrrh seemed to become slightly lost in thought.

    "All right, I think I've got something. Rush towards the pond as fast as you can so you can try to dive into the water and attempt to clear your eyes up. Then, whether your eyes are clear or not, we need to hit Surskit hard. Try firing off a Seed Bomb and if you can follow it up with a Gunk Shot. Have at it!"

    TutorX: Eager to help the Forest Ranger out, you accept his mission for you with great pride. You decide to get to work posting the signs he left with you. The first sign goes into the ground with ease and also with the help of braces made out of knotted grass thanks for Zoomer.

    You decide next to go to a spot opposite this one across the lake. You pack up your supplies and take the signs from Zoomer. You begin your walk along the shore to the other side of the lake, careful not to go near the water. You pass by the spot where the Deerling emerged from the woods, but you don't see any trace of the Season Pokemon. As you continue walking you look over to the lake wondering if anything else is in there with the Basculin, as it seemed to be quite ferocious.

    More time passes, and you finally get to the other side of the lake. You find a good spot to place the second sign, so you get to work. Like the first sign you shove this sign into the ground using your weight for more force. You notice a big flat rock nearby, so you grab it. Holding it above head, you begin to slowly hammer it down. With the second sign in place you decide to take the rock with you.

    You decide to return to the site of the Deerling emergency, since you noticed a worn path around there when you first passed by. The heat from the afternoon gets to you a little bit, so you take a little break in the shade of the trees. Zoomer sets the signs down and joins you relaxing in the shade. It was a welcomed break. After a few minutes of cooling off, you get back to work. You sink the next sign into the ground. Zoomer helps out by holding onto the post, as you take the rock again and start hammering the sign in.

    You look across to the other side of the lake, where it all started, as you wipe sweat from your brow. All of a sudden, you see a child run down the path towards the lake. From what you can make out, he seems excited to see the lake. You smile watching the child who is now jumping up and down excitedly and yelling. You turn away for a moment to collect your things, and when you do, you also begin to hear splashing in addition to the yelling. Glancing over you see the boy is in the lake swimming, a perfect remedy to the day's heat. You start your walk to the same spot where the boy is swimming. As you pass the first sign you placed, the boy's fun gets interrupted, and you hear him screaming, "Owwwwwiiiiieeee!" It seems something has injured the boy. What will you do?
    Niles takes a deep breath after finally getting the third sign into the ground. He sees a kid coming towards the lake, smiling at the chance to cool off. Niles wonders why a kid would go to swim in a lake by himself. Maybe he was also an adventurer, seemed unlikely considering he didn't have his Pokemon out. Then again Niles couldn't really tell from that far. This train of thought made him forget the dangers of the water, and not have any concern for the boy who was swimming in the waters.

    Niles started walking to where the boy was, it was the perfect spot for the last sign and it would be nice to meet that boy. Niles wasn't too experienced as a trainer, in fact this was his first adventure. He thought it might be good to get some advice from someone his own age. Zoomer was still holding the last sign, but was anxiously watching the swimming boy. He already saw what happened to the last thing that was in that water. This time there might not be an experienced trainer if something happens.

    "Owwwwwiiiiieeee!" The boy screamed. Niles started to run then remembered, he should probably think this through. Zoomer quickly reacted and sent out a Signal Beam next to the boy to try to startle off the predator.

    "I got it!" Niles exclaimed as he grabbed Zoomer and started running to the boy. Niles took the sign from the Ralts and threw him straight at the boy.

    "Zoomer Teleport the boy out of the water!" Niles commanded.

    Charminions: While you brush off the theft of the Cornn Berry by the presumably wild Mankey, Osage just cannot shake being attacked. As you make an attempt to keep moving, Osage runs off in pursuit of the berry thief. You follow Osage, in an effort to keep him out of harm's way, should the Mankey decide to turn and fight. The Pig Monkey proves to be a master of the forest swinging from limb to limb speedily while holding onto the berry with its tail. After a few moments of dodging trees, tree trunks, and other flora, the Mankey lands on the ground and continues running as it has run out of trees to swing through. Ahead of you, you see a shallow cave, and the Mankey is running in that direction.

    When you emerge from the trees, you see what the Mankey was looking for. There's a woman in the cave kneeling on the ground tending to what looks like a smooth rock with a ridge along it. "Oh Pigkey, you've returned" she says relieved. The Mankey, now in the cave, walks over to its owner and shows her the Cornn Berry it took. "Hmm, a Cornn Berry? This may help," she examines the berry. "Thank you so much for finding this! Let's see if this will help Trunphan out." She takes the berry from Pigkey and walks over to the smooth rock that now appears to be breathing.

    The woman, dressed in overalls and a pink T-Shirt, stops walking when she senses your presence just inside the cave. "Hello, are you here to help my Donphan out?" she turns and asks hopefully. "He's not been feelng well since I saw him eat a strange leaf. I have the medicine to cure him, but he won't take it," she looks at Trunphan with sorrow in her eyes. "I'm trying to find some berries that he could take with the medicine, but so far he's rejected everything we've given him. I think only his favorite berries will work." She walks over to you, and with her finger pushes her glasses further up on the bridge of her nose, "By the way, my name is Viola. What's yours?" What will you do?
    Charm and Osage continue chasing after the Mankey, who skillfully swings from branch to branch whilst holding the Cornn Berry with his tail. "See?" Charm pants, "How are we supposed to catch up to a monkey in a forest?". Osage ignores the question and continues running tirelessly, dodging trees and ducking below branches persistantly. Many minutes have passed before the Mankey looks to have landed back on ground, where he starts to run towards some cave.

    The Sneasel makes it out of the forest soon after, followed by a tired Charm. They see a woman in a cave tending to some large rock. Somewhat confused by what she could be doing, they continue watching and see the Mankey handing the Cornn berry to the woman. "Oh Pigkey, you've returned. Hmm, a Cornn Berry? This may help," the woman says, taking the berry. "Thank you so much for finding this! Let's see if this will help Trunphan out." She walks towards the rock who looks to be alive, a Pokemon. They're able to get a closer look at the woman, who appears to be wearing a pink t-shirt and overalls. She's also rather pretty, which causes Charm to turn red. Women, his one of many weaknesses. The woman notices the duo and turns to them with hopeful eyes, "Hello, are you here to help my Donphan out?" Oh, so it's a Donphan. "He's not been feelng well since I saw him eat a strange leaf. I have the medicine to cure him, but he won't take it," she continues. "I'm trying to find some berries that he could take with the medicine, but so far he's rejected everything we've given him. I think only his favorite berries will work." The sadness in her eyes over her sick Pokemon, along with the fact that she's pretty made Charm already want to help her out. She walks over to Charm, pushing her glasses up and offering a greeting, "By the way, my name is Viola. What's yours?"

    Charm turns red once more, "Oh... um hi. I'm Charm... and this is my Sneasel... Osage." Osage gives a smirk and looks rather calm now, realizing the Mankey only did what he did to help his trainer and fellow Pokemon. He's not a heartless avenger after all. Charm takes a quick breath and tries to talk normally, "We were chasing after your Mankey which stole the berry we found and attacked my Sneasel..." Charm awkwardly hand brushes his black hair as he speaks, "but we can let that go since it was for a sick Pokemon... I'm no doctor, but we can help you find the berry your Donphan wants..."

    Celebii151: After the discovery of a frightened Panpour in a tree, you decide that it’s time to battle. A couple loud shouts and some inaccurate Water Gun attacks reveal to you that this Panpour is quite young. After seeing those attacks miss, the Panpour continues to pace on its branch.

    You return your Poochyena to its Pokeball and let your Squirtle, Neptune, out figuring a Water against Water battle would be most appropriate. With the Panpour high up in the tree, Neptune’s water attacks would be slightly weakened. You decide that it should come out of the tree. You give orders to Neptune to use Water Pulse to knock it off the limb. Neptune nods and creates an orb of water by waving its hands in a spherical motion, then sends it flying up towards the Panpour. The orb hits Panpour on the chest, and the force of the attack knocks Panpour off the tree. It falls to the ground screaming, "POUR!" once more. Without any confusion it gets up and gets closer facing Neptune.

    On his next order, Neptune tucks his head and begins to charge towards the Panpour, head first. "Stop this battling immediately!" you hear a voice yelling. You turn to see a woman in a white coat running towards you, and you see the Panpour run and leap into her arms. A loud thump disturbs your concentrating on the woman and Panpour as you turn to see that Neptune's head has already connected with the same tree you first spotted the Panpour in. "So, Team Plasma sends you in here to distract us?" she scolds you. She glares are you, seeing Neptune slowly walking back to your side rubbing his head. "Who are you? What are you doing here? This is a scientific research center!"

    Just then you see other primate Pokemon gathering in the area. Lots of Mankey and Primeape, a Pansear, some Pansage, another Panpour, and a Monferno all form a circle around you and the woman. You see the young Panpour holding onto the woman frightened. The surrounding simians all seem upset. What will you do?
    Neptune begins the match with the young and the restless Panpour, a Water Pulse scoring a direct but ineffective hit on the Spray Pokemon. Panpour is knocked off its high branch, crashing into the ground, but thankfully not too hurt. The Panpour gets up, a bit dazed from the fall, and begins to move closer to Neptune. Cele scratches his head and looks puzzled as to why Panpour is coming closer if he ordered Skull Bash. Neptune realizes this as well, but still carries out his orders, tucking his head into his shell.

    The Panpour watches with terror in its eyes as Neptune charges towards it. A few seconds before impact, their battle is rudely interrupted by a woman's voice in behind them. "Stop this battling immediately!" the voice calls. Neptune's technique and concentration are cut short as he misses Panpour completely, crashing into the Panpour's tree quite painfully. The young Panpour runs towards the woman and jumps into her arms, shaking with fear. Neptune, slowly walks back to Cele's side, his head still throbbing with pain.

    The woman glares at Cele fiercely. If looks could kill, Cele would be writing his last will and testament right about now. She begins to speak, more scolding and false accusations of Cele's presence. "So, Team Plasma sends you here to distract us? Who are you? What are you doing here? This is a scientific research center!" she yells. "Doesn't look much like a research center, just a young Panpour?" Cele thinks to himself. As if on cue, Cele, Neptune and the mysterious woman are surrouded by a pack of peculiar primate Pokemon. A group of Mankey and Primeape leap from the trees, followed by a Pansear, Pansage, Monferno and another Panpour.

    Suddenly, Cele felt like he was in The Monkey-Forts of The Mystic Jungle he head read so much about. He took out his Pokedex to scan this multitude of Pokemon. Pansear. The High Temp Pokémon. When it is angered, the temperature of its head tuft reaches 600° F. It uses its tuft to roast berries. Pansage. The Grass Monkey Pokémon. This Pokémon dwells deep in the forest. Eating a leaf from its head whisks weariness away as if by magic. Monferno. The Playful Pokémon. It skillfully controls the intensity of the fire on its tail to keep its foes at an ideal distance. Mankey. The Pig Monkey Pokémon. It lives in treetop colonies. If one becomes enraged, the whole colony rampages for no reason. Primeape. The Pig Monkey Pokémon. It grows angry if you see its eyes and gets angrier if you run. If you beat it, it gets even madder.

    "Damn, that's alot of monkeys." Cele says, pointing the obvious. He then turns to the woman. "Look, woman, I had no idea this was a research center, and I was definitely not sent by Team Plasma. I've heard of them, back in my home region, Unova. They were trying to 'liberate' Pokemon from people. I'm more than willing to help with Panpour's injuries." Cele offers, holding out a Potion to spray on Panpour. "I'm Cele, a Pokemon Trainer. I came in search of some bird Pokemon, but a run-in with a wild Buneary made me end up here. I'd be more than glad to help with your Team Plasma issue, if you require assistance."

    Your Cyndaquil had awoken you from a fantasy land full of women, maybe money and fast cars, to point out a Teddiursa just outside the forest. This little cutie pie wanted you to follow her into the woods for some reason, and you and Cyndaquil were both a little curious, so you followed her in.

    As you follow the Little Bear through the woods, you can see all kinds of sights, including a Galvantula waiting patiently for its next meal to fly or run into its “live wire” web, and a girl with a Meowth stalking some weird objects you assumed to be bugs. The Teddiursa eventually brings you into a wooded area with each tree holding a different type of Berry. There were all sorts of Berries here, common and possibly rare, and each and every Berry looked ripe for the picking. Teddiursa tries climbing up one of the trees and only ends up sliding back down, tumbling back on her bum. “Urr saa, urs urs ursa…” she says sadly, trying to reach for the Berries. Apparently, this little one couldn’t climb the Berry trees and therefore couldn’t reach the Berries she wanted to eat. That might be why she brought you here, so you could help her get some. She looked like she was on the verge of tears, too, so you didn’t have much time to satisfy her. However, if you were able to pick plenty of Berries for her, she may be willing to share some with you.

    If you are willing to help this poor Teddiursa, play Teddiursa’s Garden Patch Match, and post your score along with your reply. Now, what will Chad do?

    OOC: Please keep in mind I don't have a mouse on my laptop.

    After waking from a quick nap to discover a Teddiursa beckoning him to join her in the woods, Chad and Cyndaquil entered after her. As the pair walk, they saw many different Pokemon going about their business. One such sight was a Galvantula waiting in its web, which looked electrified, for a snack to get tangled. Chad looked up the spider:
    Quote Originally Posted by Pokedex

    "Stay away from that web Cyndaquil," Chad immediately replied upon hearing the entry. They continued walking, Chad looking over his shoulder every now and then. 'One of those would be nice on my team,' he thought to himself.

    A little later Chad spotted a girl with her cat Pokemon. The urge to know about it overcame Chad, so he aimed his Pokedex at it as well:
    Quote Originally Posted by Pokedex

    "Aww. That's cute," Chad commented. "It must have found some bugs to play with." He and Cyndaquil kept following.

    At last, the Teddiursa led them to a wooded area. Chad looked around in amazement. All the trees in this area were all full of berries, many different kinds of berries in fact. Chad's eyes sparkled at the thought of all the Pokeblocks and Poffins he could make with these. His attention returned to Teddiursa, who attempted to climb one of the trees; but she didn't get very far. "Urr saa, urs urs ursa," she said to Chad pointing to the berries. She began to get sad, tears welling in her eyes.

    Chad made the connection instantly. "Aww, are you hungry dear?" he asked sweetly. "We'll help you get some berries."

    Chad got the feeling she wasn't in the mood to wait, so he acted fast. He took a Pokeball out and clicked the open button and with a flash of white light, his Heracross appeared. After gathering himself, looked thrilled to be among such fertile trees. He started flying over to a tree to feast. "Hang on Heracross," Chad interrupted the Singlehorn. "I need your help to gather some berries for the Teddiursa please. She's pretty hungry, so let's feed her first. Maybe she won't mind if, while or after she eats, you have some sap afterwards." He points at the tree closest to hungry Little Bear. "She seems to like those berries. Please start there." Heracross, hesitant at first eyeing another tree that looked particularly delicious, nodded and began its mission. He flew up to the tree and speedily started collecting berries. Chad and Cyndaquil ran over to start collecting them as Heracross dropped them from above. In a short amount of time, Heracross was able to collect 36 Berries for Teddiursa.

    Chad and Cyndaquil made a modest pile on the ground for Teddiursa to feast from. He hoped there was enough for her.

    Locked in a life-and-death battle against a Skarmory you decide to change up your strategy so you could overwhelm the Armor Bird. Flare tries to give Skarmory a Hypnotic stare, but since it was flying around too much, she couldn’t make eye contact for a long enough period of time. However, it was starting to get drowsy again and fly lower. It still had the speed to fly in and slam into Flare with its Steel Wings for a good hit. Flare responds with a Fiery breath that Spins around the Skarmory and traps it for a while. Skarmory dared not try to escape and risk heavy damage from the flames, but it still shot out stars that were Swift enough to avoid making contact with the flames and hit your Vulpix for some good damage. With Skarmory trapped and taking slight damage from the flaming vortex, Flare tries Hypnosis again, but Skarmory was too preoccupied with how to deal with the flames to make eye contact. The Armor Bird was able to cook up a plan, however, using two more disks of Air to Cut through the flames and aim at Flare. She dodges but gets clipped by one of them on her right hind leg, making it slightly painful to walk on that leg but not too bad. The flames surrounding Skarmory were disturbed by the Air Cutter attack, so Skarmory doesn’t suffer extra damage for now but still remains trapped in the Fire Spin. Now Skarmory is slightly ahead in health, but what was worse was that Flare was starting to look exhausted from the Fire attacks she was using, though she still had plenty of fire left inside her for more.

    What will Charlotte do?

    Charlotte gritted her teeth as she watched her plan crumble. This hadn't worked out the way she'd hoped at all. It was time for a change of plans.

    "You okay there, Flare?" she asked, who, though having an exhausted look on her face, nodded, her eyes full of determination. "Okay, let's up the level, then!" Charlotte exclaimed. "Flare, use Confuse Ray, so that the Skarmory can't see where it's going, then it has more of a chance of accidentally moving towards the flames. Then, whether the Skarmory breaks free from the Fire Spin or not, charge in and use Crossfire twice, and try to aim for its face. If you're feeling too weak or tired after that, come back, and I'll switch in Serafina instead, okay? Otherwise, try for another Flamethrower, but you must come back to me after that."

    Vulpix gave a growl of confirmation, and lept back into battle.


    (OoC: Sorry for short reply, but there isn't much for me to say other than that. Also, stats are in image.)

    Default Adventures in Astoria by Dark Searchman, Part 4

    All right, I'm back in this! Nerubi and Thorndrop, your adventures are now officially placed on hold until I hear from you guys. Should you post a reply to your current update, I'd be happy to update you again, but for now, your slots go to some other players. And with that, I hereby welcome Kaisap112 and Marion Ette to my group! Since I have heard from InnerFlame, I will continue to repost her update, and hopefully she will reply soon!

    The Divine Woodland


    Magus Falls

    InnerFlame – {Your update is here.}

    Kaisap112

    You were definitely excited to start your first adventure, but not as much as your Skitty. She had fun darting in and out of the bushes, rolling on the grass, trying to climb up trees, falling into holes that thankfully weren’t occupied at the time… you get the idea. Then a leaf floating in the wind grabs her attention. She follows the leaf, you follow her, and you are both led to the beautiful scenery surrounding a freshwater lake, the one you had heard so much about and wanted to see for yourself. Trees and flowers of all kinds dotted the landscape, including one tree that looked like it had some delicious fruit you could investigate later on. The Pokemon around here were plentiful too; some Deerling accompanied by a Sawsbuck came to the large pool for a drink while their mother kept a watchful eye for signs of danger. Meanwhile, a good assortment of Grass Pokemon and Bug Pokemon were in the nearby meadow enjoying the flowers… until a certain Skitty runs in and chases the other Pokemon off. This also disturbed a few flower petals which are blown by the wind back to the lake. Skitty, as usual, picks one and follows it… this time up a tree and out to a branch that hung low over the lake now. The flower petal floats into the water, and Skitty finds herself unable to reach it… and unwilling to climb back. Classic. Then out of the water surfaces a blue fish about Skitty’s size and it proceeds to shoot its Water Gun on the branch where Skitty was standing. All of a sudden, she loses her footing and is about to head into the drink when her cat reflexes kick in and allow her cling onto the branch with her claws. The Remoraid continues to use Water Gun on the branch around where Skitty was, looking like it’s having fun playing with the cat, but Skitty doesn’t want any part in this game; she’s getting swung up and down on the branch, and it looks like she’s losing her grip.

    Your last strategy to take down a Skarmory didn’t exactly work the way you wanted, but it did keep the Armor Bird trapped within a Spinning vortex of Fire, giving you a window of opportunity to use your stronger moves to defeat it. First, though, Flare flashed another Confuse Ray into Skarmory’s face, causing it to be disoriented once again. So disoriented, in fact, that it accidentally flew into the vortex and took more damage, just as your Vulpix jumped up to the Skarmory, Crossed her arms, and lit them on Fire. However, due to the erratic way her target was flying, the bird somehow flew out of the way of Flare’s attack, so she unfortunately wasted the energy that time. Worse still, she landed in the area where Skarmory had used Spikes, taking damage and further aggravating her injured leg. Meanwhile, Skarmory was still trying to regain its senses and flew close enough to the vortex to take some more damage. Flare gained courage from this, and, despite her injury, she was able to leap to where Skarmory was and try Crossfire again. This time, she connected, dealing some heavy damage to Skarmory’s torso, but Skarmory reacts quickly and releases its Air Cutting disks at pointblank range, slicing into Flare for some good damage. The Fire Spin dissipates, and you could tell Skarmory was in serious pain and was now charred all over its body. Flare wasn’t looking too hot either, as she winced in pain from her injured leg. You could tell she had run out of fire energy too. If you wanted to switch to Serafina, now was a good opportunity to do it. Even though your Houndour wasn’t as experienced as Flare or Skarmory, she would have a decent chance to finish the Armor Bird off.

    What will Charlotte do?

    You were lucky Aegis was able to put out the fire so quickly, but you still had a battle to finish up. Bishop was looking exhausted, but if he could just push a little more, he’d be able to win against this Karrablast. He hopped back over to the bug and stabbed it with his beak. Karrablast looked like it was going to fall over after being Pecked like that… but no, he was still standing! That spunky little bug had Endured the attack! One more Peck! No, he Endured it again! And another Peck! Karrablast was showing extreme determination. Who would fall first? Would it be Karrablast, unable to Endure any more? Or would it be Bishop, who simply pushed it too far? Just then, Karrablast gasped. It was too much to Endure, and he collapsed from the pain, falling unconscious. Bishop gains one level! Bishop stood there for a second, still trying to take it all in, and he ends up falling on his tail feathers, extremely tired but able to relax now that he had won. He was certainly a Hoothoot to be proud of for fighting the way he did. However, it felt like you had forgotten something completely important… You couldn’t really figure it out but-

    Oh no. THE PICNIC BASKET!

    You were so focused on the battle that you had completely forgotten why you were battling the Karrablast. Or that the basket was in the middle of those bushes you burnt. You look back over to the bushes which looked almost burnt to a crisp, and right in the middle was your basket. Aegis was just too late to save it. All the food inside was completely destroyed, and you had only yourself to blame for ruining your perfect picnic. At least you had an unconscious Karrablast to show for it.

    What will Joshua do?


    Jolteonjak

    You had a hungry little Teddiursa on your hands, and you needed to act fast to rescue her from her complaining stomach. Your Heracross seemed like a good Pokemon to gather some, so you call him out. It took a little convincing to shift his priorities from drinking delicious tree sap to gathering Berries for the Little Bear in peril, but Heracross did his job and gathered a nice amount of Berries for Teddiursa to munch on. Teddiursa happily eats half of the berries, then she pauses for a moment. She picks out two Berries from the pile, then holds the Chople Berry and Coba Berry out to you with a smile. Aw, she wants to give them to you, how sweet!

    Moments later, you hear some buzzing sounds that chill you to the core. They can only belong to one Pokemon. You turn to the direction of the sound to see four wasp-looking Pokemon with barbs on their arms, and one of these Beedrill is speedy enough to fly in and scoop up the remaining Berries before you can react! The other three Beedrill are not far behind, spraying their Poison Sting at the ground around you before flying to where the first one is. Apparently, these three want to make sure their friend escapes with the stolen goods, and Teddiursa is not about to let them get away with this without a fight.

    What will Chad do?


    Megh

    In your rush to catch a bug Pokemon, you unwittingly send Jake into a Spinarak’s web and possibly doom for him. Now, you struggle to come up with an idea on how to get him out of this sticky situation. Your Meowth wasn’t waiting for your orders, though; he wanted to get out of this situation now, and your hesitation would just get him eaten. He lets out a low Growl, threatening his host about what he could do if the spider didn’t let him go. Spinarak thought twice for a moment, losing a small amount of morale and Attack power, but it didn’t faze the Bug-type enough. It moves on to its next phase, firing a bunch of Stinging needles in an attempt to inject Poison in Jake… and it works. Jake only took minimal damage from the actual needles, but the more worrying part was that he was now poisoned and losing his will to fight. Seeing the attack was a success, the Spinarak moves in for the kill… but it moves in too close and Jake seizes the opportunity, Biting down on Spinarak’s leg. “SPINAAAAAAAA!” it shrieks in pain, taking some decent damage there as the Technician mind of Jake allowed him to focus his attack on the leg joint, which made it hurt even more. The poison takes effect, though, and causes Jake to let go. Having realized its mistake, the Bite simply serves as a minor setback as it moves around to the other side of the web and utilizes its Bug Biting prowess, nibbling on Jake’s back. Jake yowls and squirms, trying to move away from the spider’s jaws and find some relief from this torture, but the web holds him down, and his moving around will only accelerate the spread of the poison in the future.

    What will Megh do?

    You ask Leah for help in trying to catch a Pokemon and she responds, “Well, I can take you to some places where wild Pokemon are commonly found, but if you want to catch one, you’ll be on your own, I’m afraid!”

    You could tell she seemed somewhat confused when you mentioned how you can “drag your home here”, but she didn’t say anything about that and moved on to your last question. “Oh, um, I’m sorry, but I’m afraid I’d like to stay here. However…” she pauses for a moment as her mood darkens, “I would like to ask you a favor. I have been trying to gather some rainbow-colored flowers that are an important ingredient to a special medicine. But a Vespiquen and her hive of Combee have recently established their territory at the only place where the flowers grow, and they defend it extremely fiercely. So much so, that Ludicolo and I can’t even get close to the flowers. The other Pokemon that normally lived there have all been chased out as well. Vespiquen must be defeated and, if possible, persuaded to live somewhere else, but I need your help!”

    Marion Ette

    Dead Forest was definitely a name meant to attract the wrong crowd of Pokemon, and at its Burial Ground, rumors had surfaced of corpses buried in this very graveyard coming back to life. So far, no concrete evidence has surfaced to prove these stories true, but there are too many eyewitness accounts to claim such a bizarre event impossible. As a result, your professor had contacted you to conduct an investigation into the Burial Ground as part of your field research, and you were not one to refuse such an opportunity.

    You came into Dead Forest with your Crobat, Sangre, and he felt right at home here. On your way to the Burial Grounds, he took immense pleasure in taking down a couple of Rattata, a Nidorina, and a Dustox, draining the Rattata and Nidorina of every drop of their blood and completely devouring the Dustox; you could still see scales of Dustox wing around his face and decided to wipe them off and stash them in a small container so they could be used as samples for your fellow associates’ research.

    As you arrive, you take necessary precautions for two different aspects: the harsh environment and the sacred grounds of those buried here. You take your time to study the surroundings and the gravesites when you are interrupted by a raspy voice, “Ah, so you have come here to seek answers.”

    You turn to find an elderly woman in a mysterious purple cloak with a stubby cane standing before you. Sangre is wary of her and takes a battle stance, but the old lady ignores your Crobat and continues, “You wish to discover the truth about this land.”

    “Oh yes, it is a wondrous place.” A second elderly woman appears with another purple cloak, this one wearing a red necklace. “The land here is very special and contains a truly mystical property indeed… One need only dig to witness the magic. But be warned!” The first one joins in on this chilling phrase: “Dig too deep, and you may find yourself becoming part of the mystery!!” Their cackles reverberate throughout the graveyard, and before you can ask the old women any questions, they vanish in an instant, their creepy cackles taking their sweet time to fade away.

    Well, that was disturbing. In any case, Sangre relaxes, and you are assured you are once again alone, free to explore the area and do whatever research you wanted to do here.

    What will Marion do?

    ((Thanks for taking me on, DS! I look forward to my awesome new adventure~))

    Sangre appears to be a perfect fit for the Dead Forest environment, and finds hunting particularly lucrative. In a span of mere minutes, he drains blood from some Rattata and Nidoran, but seems to especially relish a delightful Dustox meal, which he consumes whole with surprising speed and efficiency. The gusto with which Sangre devours this poor, ill-fated creature makes Marion happy that she returned Severus to his original owner the day before they left for their journey. She had wondered why Sangre seemed to get along so well with the Dustox she was babysitting... Originally, she thought it had to do with them sharing the same dual-type. Now, Marion realizes that there may have been a more sinister explanation for Sangre's overly friendly attitude towards the moth-like Pokemon. Then again, Marion knew that Sangre was not the type to be manipulative or attempt to gather a meal through befriending a potential victim; hunting, to him, was an impersonal act meant simply to obtain sustenance, and his direct, aggressive approach marked him as the type who avoided mind games in general. Perhaps he made a particular effort to befriend the Dustox in order to diminish the urge to eat him. Fortunately for Marion, this devoured Dustox was no friend of hers or Sangre's. After muttering a quick prayer to Giratina for the souls of those who have been consumed for her Pokemon's sustenance, she is able to take samples of Dustox wing scales from his face to return to the professors in the chemical department for analysis. "San... let's, uh, let's not tell Keith and Severus that you enjoy eating Dustox, okay?" Sangre nods in agreement, and the pair continue on.

    Marion is about to bend down and collect a small sample of dirt from the perimeter of the gravesite when she hears the voice of an old woman with a purple cloak and stubby cane. Turning around to face her, Marion notes that she doesn't look particularly undead, but Marion knows better than to make assumptions based on looks alone. The old woman seems to know her intentions already; perhaps this was a direct result of Marion's getup. After all, she did look the part of the scientist, complete with vial full of bloody scale samples, so it would make sense that the woman would assume she was here for answers. Sangre immediately enters an aggressive stance, ready to defend his trainer at the slightest provocation. After all, she DID take him to a magical place full of delicious blood-carriers, crunch-crunch bugs and an amazingly poisonous atmosphere. He had to repay her somehow.

    A second woman appears, with a red necklace accentuating her purple- wait. That description sounds terribly familiar... In fact, there were two Pokemon in Marion's mind with very similar "outfits" of sorts, and she couldn't help but wonder if these "women" were actually Pokemon. Granted, one can never assume based on appearances, and there was no real data to support such an assumption, but deep within Marion's gut, the feeling that the two were somehow related simply refused to relent. She listens to the two women describe the place as "magical," with the instructions to dig in order to see the magic... However, they issue a word of warning that if she digs too deep, she may become "part of the mystery." Before Marion has the opportunity to ask for any clarification, however, the pair disappear in an instant, though the cackles echo through the graveyard for some time. A normal person would be terribly frightened by such visions; Marion, however, has received warnings and death-threats from apparitions so frequently over the course of her life that she regards it with a strangely upbeat politeness. "Okay, thanks! I like your cloaks, by the way! Purple's my favorite color!" She says, waving and smiling in the direction of the cackles. Sangre simply shakes his head at his trainer's reaction.

    Marion turns to Sangre, motioning for him to lean in close as she whispers to him. "Obviously, being alert is important here, but I want you to be especially on-guard for sound-based attacks and illusions. I have a sneaking suspicion that the Misdreavus/Mismagius line is somehow involved with what we just saw, so I want you to be prepared in the event that they decide to start moaning and screeching and whatnot. Of course, I could be wrong... I guess it's just best to be prepared for anything." Sangre nods in response, as he flaps around Marion's head, listening and looking for anything odd.

    "We'll start slow. I didn't exactly bring tools to excavate, but taking some samples of the soil might be a good place to start in terms of unearthing this mystery..." Marion bends down, and begins taking progressively larger samples of soil from various areas of the gravesite, placing the dirt in well-sealed vials for later inspection. As she does this, both trainer and Pokemon remain alert for any potential "magic" that decides to spring up around them.

    In your rush to catch a bug Pokemon, you unwittingly send Jake into a Spinarak’s web and possibly doom for him. Now, you struggle to come up with an idea on how to get him out of this sticky situation. Your Meowth wasn’t waiting for your orders, though; he wanted to get out of this situation now, and your hesitation would just get him eaten. He lets out a low Growl, threatening his host about what he could do if the spider didn’t let him go. Spinarak thought twice for a moment, losing a small amount of morale and Attack power, but it didn’t faze the Bug-type enough. It moves on to its next phase, firing a bunch of Stinging needles in an attempt to inject Poison in Jake… and it works. Jake only took minimal damage from the actual needles, but the more worrying part was that he was now poisoned and losing his will to fight. Seeing the attack was a success, the Spinarak moves in for the kill… but it moves in too close and Jake seizes the opportunity, Biting down on Spinarak’s leg. “SPINAAAAAAAA!” it shrieks in pain, taking some decent damage there as the Technician mind of Jake allowed him to focus his attack on the leg joint, which made it hurt even more. The poison takes effect, though, and causes Jake to let go. Having realized its mistake, the Bite simply serves as a minor setback as it moves around to the other side of the web and utilizes its Bug Biting prowess, nibbling on Jake’s back. Jake yowls and squirms, trying to move away from the spider’s jaws and find some relief from this torture, but the web holds him down, and his moving around will only accelerate the spread of the poison in the future.

    What will Megh do?

    "Oh, man, oh man, oh man..." Megh stammers as she shakes her head back and forth, her hands over her face. I've gotta do something! "Wait a sec!" She's only a baby, but it's the only chance I've got... gee, what a stroke of luck I was late at the Day-Care and couldn't drop her off... She fumbles for the other occupied Poke Ball at her waist, her fingers clammy with sweat. "G-go! Lyla!" It can't be that strong, can it? I mean, it's only a little spider...

    "Sewa, wa!" chirps Lyla the Sewaddle as she faces the imposing scene, her temper rising. How dare some insolent bug try and make munchies out of her Master's best friend! "Waaa... Sewaddle!!" Megh almost giggles despite the situation, at the racket the little critter puts up. Gee, I know she's a little quick-tempered, but... wow. She's usually calm, but now she's like a Mankey!

    "Myaaaaaa!" a desperate wail from Jake snaps her back to the situation. A fire burns inside her. Her first real battle wasn't about to be lost to a frickin' spider! Although it would be nice to catch it. She shakes her head. No! Jake is more important than selfish desires. Oh, God! She'd gotten lost in her thoughts again.

    "Better hurry, Lyla!" Megh calls. "Quickly, use String Shot on Spinarak to slow it down! Then, knock it away from Jake with Tackle. Be careful not to get caught in the web or you'll end up as Spinarak's dessert!" The little leafy critter gives a curt nod, and jumps forward to aid her friend. Meanwhile, Megh's fingers grip the same empty Poke Ball, first of two vacant ones she brought, ready to throw. Just in case I get a chance... After all, I am a Pokemon trainer!

    You were definitely excited to start your first adventure, but not as much as your Skitty. She had fun darting in and out of the bushes, rolling on the grass, trying to climb up trees, falling into holes that thankfully weren’t occupied at the time… you get the idea. Then a leaf floating in the wind grabs her attention. She follows the leaf, you follow her, and you are both led to the beautiful scenery surrounding a freshwater lake, the one you had heard so much about and wanted to see for yourself. Trees and flowers of all kinds dotted the landscape, including one tree that looked like it had some delicious fruit you could investigate later on. The Pokemon around here were plentiful too; some Deerling accompanied by a Sawsbuck came to the large pool for a drink while their mother kept a watchful eye for signs of danger. Meanwhile, a good assortment of Grass Pokemon and Bug Pokemon were in the nearby meadow enjoying the flowers… until a certain Skitty runs in and chases the other Pokemon off. This also disturbed a few flower petals which are blown by the wind back to the lake. Skitty, as usual, picks one and follows it… this time up a tree and out to a branch that hung low over the lake now. The flower petal floats into the water, and Skitty finds herself unable to reach it… and unwilling to climb back. Classic. Then out of the water surfaces a blue fish about Skitty’s size and it proceeds to shoot its Water Gun on the branch where Skitty was standing. All of a sudden, she loses her footing and is about to head into the drink when her cat reflexes kick in and allow her cling onto the branch with her claws. The Remoraid continues to use Water Gun on the branch around where Skitty was, looking like it’s having fun playing with the cat, but Skitty doesn’t want any part in this game; she’s getting swung up and down on the branch, and it looks like she’s losing her grip.

    What will Noriko do?
    Skitty jumped out of yet another bush, taking notice of a leaf floating about in the wind. Noriko could almost hear Skitty’s mind going “PREY!” before the kitten ran after the leaf. The Trainer sighed, dragging herself after her partner. If there was a berry in existence that calmed Pokémon down, she’d hunt for a bagful immediately.

    The flying leaf lead the two to a lovely scene: a lake, surrounded by Pokémon and trees full of delicious-looking fruit! Noriko gasped with joy as she noticed a herd of Deerling with a motherly Sawsbuck watching over them. Skitty was not aware of her surroundings. With loud, laughter-like noise, Skitty ran after the leaf – right in the middle of all the Pokémon. Noriko could only cover her face with her hands as her cheery partner proceeded to chase away every single Pokémon in sight with her chase of her prey. “Good thing no one else is around, otherwise I’d have to say I don’t know her,” Noriko thought to herself, letting out a long sigh. This was not the first time and would surely not be the last when Skitty’s antics had driven away every wild Pokémon within a mile radius – and a couple of tamed ones as well.

    A gentle gust of wind shook picked up some flower petals, most likely shaken lose by Skitty, and directed them toward the lake. Skitty didn’t miss a beat, locking on to a single petal and running right after it. The petal flew toward a tree and climbed up the trunck with the overly excited feline right after it. As soon as Skitty made it to a branch the petal dropped down on the surface of the lake. Noriko watched from her spot as Skitty stared at the fallen petal for a few second – before starting to make loud, distressed noise. “You’re kidding me, right? Skitty, if you got up there you can get down just fine!” Noriko yelled at her Pokémon, but Skitty refused to budge.
    As Noriko was walking over to the tree Skitty was stuck in, a Remoraid jumped up from the lake. It seemed eager to play with the loud Skitty, shooting a Water Gun at the branch she was standing on. Skitty suddenly lost her footing. Noriko broke into a run as Skitty fell – only to hang off the tree branch by her claws. The Remoraid was either unaware of the trouble it was causing or a total sadist, continuing the assault of Water Gun. Skitty was about to lose her grip!

    Without wasting time on worrying about her clothes but throwing her bag to the side Noriko ran into the lake. Surprised at the depth of the lake she swam beneath the branch Skitty was hanging on to. “Skitty, it’s okay now! Let go!” Skitty complied immediately, letting go of the branch and falling into the water. Noriko swam over to the less-than-happy feline. “Get on my head and I’ll get you to the shore, alright?”
    With a bit of help, Skitty was at last lying on her owner’s head, grabbing on the hair for her life. Noriko bit her lip from the slight pain but swam as fast as she could to dry land. Skitty wasn’t about to wait for her to get up, instead jumping off on the ground at the first opportunity. She tried her best to shake off the water, fluffing up in a comedic manner. Noriko was getting on land behind Skitty, wringing her shirt, dripping water all over. “Look Skitty, I know you’re excited and all but you really need to get a grip. All the Pokémon keep running away from you, you get in trouble and now we’re both wet because you couldn’t let that petal go!” She turned to the lake. “Hey Remoraid, you weren’t of any help either!” With a sigh, she turned back to Skitty. “Here’s how we’re going to do this: I’ll set up a fire so I can dry my clothes and cook some lunch and you’ll stay in your Pokéball so nothing worse happens in the meanwhile. Understood?”

    Skitty nodded, not wanting to aggravate her Trainer. Noriko grabbed Skitty’s ball, the Pokémon going in without a hitch. Once Noriko was done setting up the fire and hanging her clothes to dry, changing into a sundress for the time being, she set out for the fruit trees for lunch ingredients.

    Default Jak's Astoria Update #04

    As always please let me know if anyone has any questions. To those who are waiting to be updated, I think I can grab one more. Please continue to be patient. I know it's not easy (I've been there).

    The Island
    ~The Lakes~

    TutorX: As you make your trip to the opposite side of the pond, to post the fourth sign, you see a young boy emerge from the same path you previously walked on. You keep half an eye on the child, who has now begun to swim in the pond, mostly because there seems to be a lack of supervision.

    Eventually on your trek, you hear the boy scream out in pain. Without thinking, Zoomer reacts and fires a Signal Beam to close proximity to the boy hoping to distract any creature that may have attacked him. You remember the words of the Forest Ranger, and you decide to think of a strategy this time. Looking at Zoomer, you snap your fingers realizing you now have a plan. You take the sign from him, pick him up, and throw him into the pond in the direction where the boy was. You order Zoomer to use Teleport to get the boy out of the water. With his orders, Zoomer disappears immediately and reappears next to the boy. Zoomer and the boy disappear quickly from the pond and reappear on shore near the edge of the path.

    Almost instantly after Zoomer and the disappeared, you see something surfacing on the pond. First you see a set of blue spikes. As more of it appears, you determine it has a round shape. Finally you see its eyes and a big set of red lips. The Qwilfish looks both angry and drowsy. The Balloon Pokémon yawns and scans the area around it. It spots your Ralts, and it becomes upset.

    Meanwhile you run over to the little boy, who is holding his foot in pain, tears falling from his eyes. You inspect him, and you see what appears to be a thorn in his foot. “I s-s-tepped on something,” he says in between sobs. “Mommy!!!” he screams, still crying.

    Qwilfish, fully awake now, expands its body preparing to attack. First it tenses itself, hardening its defenses. From the pressure of expanding its body, it fires quills in your direction, attempting to sting you and Zoomer with its poison. What will you do?

    ------------------------------------------------------

    Eyrie Peak
    ~Adventure Path~

    Celebii151: The sudden appearance of a woman in a lab coat cancels your battle with the young Panpour. It seems you have unknowingly entered a research facility, and now its inhabitants surround you. The monkeys begin to close in on you as you begin to explain how you got there and that you were not sent by Team Plasma.

    “There seems to be a glimmer of truth in what you say,” the researcher says. "Why just a very short time ago, a patch of the fence that was damaged was fixed and put back in place by some of our workers.” You offer her the Potion for Panpour. “Thank you. Is this a certified Pokemon potion?” She inspects the potion and sees the certification seal. “Splendid. Thanks again.” She begins to treat the young monkey and looks at you puzzled by all the monkey Pokemon. “My name is Astrid. As I said earlier, I am a researcher here. I can assure you that you haven’t entered the Mystic Jungle. We have captured some monkeys from the Monkey-Forts, however, to begin our studies. I cannot explain what it is we are studying for your own protection and ours and the Pokemon’s.”

    Just then some of the Primeape tense their bodies. They begin to make short hops waving their arms over their heads and start to grunt softly. “I think we should continue this conversation somewhere indoors. These Primeape are getting a tad unruly at your presence in their play area,” Astrid warns. “Being cooped up while the fence was being repaired didn’t help matters either.” She slowly places the Panpour on the ground, and it immediately runs past you and up into its tree. "If you'll allow us to pass, we will all leave you alone," she says to all the monkeys, and a Pansage and Pansear both step aside creating an opening for you, Astrid, and Neptune. "Stay calm, Cele, and don't make eye contact with any of the Primape, you too Wartortle." She urges you start walking by the Grass Monkey and the High Temp Pokemon and she follows you. Once you're all sufficiently away from the monkeys, Astrid begins speaking, which causes you to exhale at last, "We should be far enough away. I apologize for that. We do not study any of the Primeape, mostly because they're quite fierce. Most of them are also parents to some of the Mankey, and they don't want to be separated from their young. And we wouldn't force them to be apart anyway. They actually serve as effective guards for the other monkeys. One of my associates witnessed one of them defending the monkeys from some of those Team Plasma agents last night, which caused extensive damage to that section of the fence you entered through. He says that was all from one Focus Punch."

    As you both continue walking towards the research center, suddenly you hear a small explosion from ahead of you. "Dr. Astrid, come in!" you hear a voice which sounds understandably panicked. Astrid takes a walkie-talkie from her pocket and listens. "Team Plasma is back! They're attacking the East Wing! We need assistance immediately!"

    "I'm on my way Joshua!" she responds. "If you truly aren't from Team Plasma, then please help us fight them off!" She reaches in one of the pockets of her lab coat and removes a Pokeball. She clicks the button to open it up, and a white flash of energy emerges. When the flash goes away you see three pairs of magnets attached to three shiny orbs of silver metal floating in the air. "Magneton, let's go!" The Magnet Pokemon nods and floats alongside Astrid. "We're not too far from the East Wing luckily. Please, will you help us?"

    Well, will you?

    -------------------------------------------------------


    Charminions: You chase the Cornn Berry stealing Mankey through a wooded area to a small cave where it presents Viola, a young woman in overalls and glasses, and her sick Donphan. She explains her situation to you and her theory that only Trunphan's favorite berry will help it to take its medicine. Being the nice guys you and Osage are, you offer to help Viola out.

    "You will? That's great!" Viola exclaims. "You're so wonderful to do this Charm!" She hurries over to her bag and pulls out a small book. "Let's see here," she mumbles thumbing furiously through its pages. "Here it is! This is the berry I am looking for, Trunphan's favorite." She shows you a picture of a big tan berry, almost pear shaped, with darker brown spots. "It's rather rare outside of the Hoenn Region, but I heard in town that there were a few trees up here with some. I'm from Fallarbor Town in the Hoenn Region. The nutrient-rich soil from the nearby volcano is perfect for growing them. My family has a small but profitable plantation selling them. I came here to research these berries to see how the climate and lack of volcanic soil affects their growth. Both my Trunphan and Pigkey are able to track their scent after being around them constantly in Fallarbor Town.” She pauses for a moment and looks at you and Osage. “You wouldn’t happen to have a Mankey or Primeape, or a Spoink or Grumpig, or even a member of the Swinub family, would you Charm? Their noses are pretty much the only noses that’ll be able to track them.”

    She sees you and Osage looking at each other and shrugging your shoulders. “Hmm, could be a problem,” she laments. “Maybe Pigkey and I could go with you,” suddenly Trunphan stirs and moans a little. “Oh my! He is burning up with a fever! I won’t be able to accompany you Charm. I can’t leave him alone feeling like this.” Viola looks at Pigkey. “Pigkey, I want you to go with Charm to find the berries. If anything should happen along the way, please listen to Charm.” She looks back at you. “My Pigkey can track the berries for you. Could you please go with her to make sure nothing happens to her?” She begins writing something down on paper. “These are the attacks she knows plus what I believe to be her unique ability.” She hands you the list of attacks Pigkey knows. “And now for the awkward part. I’m lending you one of my Pokémon, Charm, to get an errand done for me. Would you mind, terribly, leaving one of yours with me? You know where I’ll be this whole time, but I need to be able to trust that you’ll return with not only the berries but my Mankey as well. It doesn’t matter to me which, but you may want to keep your Ice-type with you since there are a lot of birds in the area. Do we have a deal?”

    What will you do?


    Special Instructions: If you decide to leave one of your Pokémon with Viola, you will not be able to use it in Astoria for the time being. Either way, Pigkey the female Mankey will accompany you outside of her Pokeball. Choose wisely; your decision will have an effect or two on what happens going forward. The following list contains the only attacks Pigkey knows: Covet, Scratch, Low Kick, Leer, Focus Energy, Fury Swipes, Smack Down, Thunderpunch, Dynamicpunch, Mega Punch. Her ability is (actually) Anger Point.

    The Mystic Jungle
    ~Waterfall Valley~

    Myrrh: After Volts gets pelted in the face with a pretty effective Mud Slap, you begin to do some calculations in your head. Volts, meanwhile, begins to get nervous because he can’t hear you speaking and his vision has been reduced. A quick squeal from the EleSquirrel, not only snaps you out of your thinking, but reminds you that he’s injured.

    You begin to give Volts his orders, first having him run to the pond to try to clean the mud out of his eyes. Not being too sure where the pond is, Volts hazily sees what he thinks is the pond and heads in that direction. The Surskit watches your Pachirisu get closer to the pond. It tenses its body up a bit and blows some bubbles at him. The bubbles pelt Volts’ head. While they don’t cause much damage, they are able to slow the EleSquirrel down slightly without a lasting effect.

    Volts is able to reach the pond, and immediately immerses his head in its cool waters. He rubs his eyes gently to try to coax the mud out. When he takes his head out of the pond, his eyes still sting a little; but his vision has definitely improved. The problem now is that his eyes are constantly being flooded with tears, which are working to rid Volts of what little mud remains.

    Volts focuses on Surskit darting on the pond onto land now. He readies a bomb in the shape of a seed and throws it at the Pond Skater as it runs by. The Seed Bomb explodes on Surskit's back sending it flying across the room, it landing near what appears to be the opening of a tunnel. Surskit gets up, and its antenna sways from front to back, as if it was beckoning you. A pink mist wafts through the air. Volts smells this sweet scent, and he just forgets about using his last ordered attack. He enters a trance-like state, and slowly approaches Surskit.

    Surskit turns and scuttles out of the cavern with Volts unknowingly following.

    What will you do?
