    Default Whale Island - The Hydro-Electric Zone

    Whale Island
    The Hydro-Electric Zone

    A tourist magnet, Whale Island is a large region of land that was formed from volcanic activity a millennia ago. There is a strange abundance of electrical energy present on this island which, rather than posing a problem, has complemented the island entirely. The entire area is a haven for water Pokémon with even the mountain craters filled to the brim, the abundance of water sports and holiday travel locations ensuring the time you spend here is never dull. Cities and townships are located all across the island, with resorts, inns, and travel lodges in ample supply. The Hydra River is the main waterway, starting up in the north-west area of the island and down through the Central Plains where the great Hydro-Electric Dam has been constructed, before leading down to the south-eastern corner of the island and back out to sea. Whether it's action water sports you're after, or just lazing on a nice stretch of beach somewhere, you'll definitely find the place you're looking for on the famous Whale Island.


    Northern Beaches
    Unless you're travelling along the Hydra River, the northern beaches tend to attract the wealthier crowd due to the fact the small beaches lining its shore have been purchased privately by those who have subsequently built properties by the water. Some of the rarer water and electric type Pokémon can be found along here, but if a wealthy beach owner finds you trespassing on their land there may be some unpleasant consequences.

    Areas:
    Shell Harbour: The entry point for those visiting the northern beaches, Shell Harbour offers cafe's, restaurants, a travel lodge, and several shops. Further down the wharf you'll find a boat hire agent who can organise guided tours unless you'd like to sail solo.

    Opal Cove Resort: An exclusive luxury retreat on the northern beaches catering for those who appreciate the best.

    Raine's Wildlife Park: A nice spot for a family day out, Raine's Wildlife Park is open to visitors who are interested in seeing some of Whale Island's native Pokémon without having to venture too far themselves.

    Brumby Lake: A popular fishing spot for locals and tourists alike, Brumby Lake is also well-known for the riding stables nearby where you can hire Blitzle or Zebstrika and enjoy riding the many trails around the lake and surrounding bushland.

    Ancient Ruins: Several hundred feet from shore, and a few hundred feet deep, lay the remains of an ancient city. Dubbed "Atlantis" for obvious reasons, many of its structures are in remarkably good condition. You'll need a Pokémon with Dive if you're wanting to explore here, but be warned; many of the tunnels have not yet been mapped so take care to ensure you don't become lost.



    East Coast
    By far the most popular tourist destination spot, the East Coast of Whale Island seems to be constantly abuzz with activity both day and night. Unfortunately the downside to this is the crime rate has risen so be sure to keep an eye out for the con artists and thieves who are looking to swindle unsuspecting travellers out of their holiday spending money. Despite this downside the east coast is a great place to holiday, especially if you're looking to make the most of daytime and night time entertainment.

    Areas:
    Pieli Harbour: Both a large harbour and resort, Pieli Harbour is famous for the best ice cream in the land, as well as its massive shipping stations, with boats as small as canoes to colossal ferries. The resort itself is archetypical of a seaside funfair, with several small rides as well as a roller coaster and ferris wheel, though the promenade at night is a sight for sore eyes to drown their sorrows on.

    Ampere Beach: The largest stretch of coastal sand in all of Fizzy Bubbles, Ampere Beach is famed for its sand which contains a mild electrical current that soothes the body. This charge is the result of the high salinity content, combined with the naturally high electricity from the central regions, providing an earthing ground for the static. As a result, the beach is often used in therapeutics, evident by the resort known as Pieli Harbour.

    Seaside City: Built up over time, Seaside City has attracted quite a number of tourists as well as long-term residents. It is now a sprawling city with all the trimmings, including shopping malls, schools, parks, and industrial sector. With plenty to do and places to visit, you'd be hard-pressed for a lazy time.

    Rainbow Reef: One of Whale Island's most remarkable natural gifts, Rainbow Reef is blessed with the breathtaking beauty of one of the world's largest coral reefs containing an abundance of marine life. Whether snorkelling or diving, you're sure to become immersed by this wonderful underwater world.

    SS Calypso Shipwreck: Approximately ten miles from shore, laying almost 100 metres deep, lays the remains of the once magnificent SS Calypso cruise liner. Sunk by a torpedo during wartime several decades ago and killing more than 2,000 of the 2,500 passengers and crew on board, the Calypso's silent remains are said to be haunted by the spirits of those who died that fateful day. Strange happenings in the waters surrounding the wreck cause most to stay away, but there are some whose curiosity attracts them to the site.



    Laguna Peninsula
    The Laguna Peninsula, also known as "Pirate Isle", is mainly forest and is famous for once harbouring a particularly nasty clan of pirates whose treasure is rumoured to still be hidden away somewhere in the vicinity. The peninsula is located on the south east end of Whale Island and although the pirates have long since vacated the land, they've certainly left their mark. Other than a rest house occupied by the peninsula's caretaker, there are no other dwellings here, the entire peninsula being under the protection of the Whale Island Conservation Society (WICS). It is said secret hideouts are cleverly hidden everywhere, so even if you're not aware of it you'll definitely have passed several of them if you're to take a scenic walk across the peninsula. Visit Pirate Isle and you'll be in for a jolly good time.

    Areas:
    The Caverns: While Laguna Beach surrounds the majority of the Laguna Peninsula, there is one stretch of coast whose rocky cliffs are not so inviting. Here the waters are quite treacherous and if you sail too close the risk of being slammed against the rocks is very high. Caverns dot the cliffside, making them the perfect hideout for the rumoured hidden treasure, but they are also home to many wild Pokémon. Explore at your own risk!

    The Black Swan: The Black Swan, once one of the largest and most feared pirate ships of its day, now lays rotting on Laguna Beach. Strangely enough wild Pokémon steer clear of the wreck; a sign that people perhaps shouldn't ignore.

    Kakatua Lagoon: Protected by a shallow sandy atoll, Kakatua Lagoon is surrounded by forest making it the perfect romantic retreat for those looking for a little privacy. It's not uncommon to find couples camping here, though the stories of hidden treasure often attract a more nefarious element to the area.

    Laguna Lake: A freshwater lake where the local Pokémon come to drink. People will often picnic here while trainers are more interested in seeing the kinds of Pokémon the lake attracts.

    Ghostly Galleon: It is said that when Black Friday falls upon a night with a full moon, the Ghostly Galleon will appear, unaware that she has sailed through a rift in time. Fact or fiction? Only time will tell...



    Central Plains
    Mostly fertile farmland there's not much here for your average tourist or trainer although a few areas of interest do attract the more adventurous trainers. Electric Pokémon thrive out here and are often found roaming the fields. Better beware though, they're not all that fond of trainers getting too close to their young so take a wrong step and you may find yourself on the wrong end of a lightning bolt that hasn't come from the sky.

    Areas:
    Cetus Port: The main arrival and departure area for the Central Plains, the Cetus Port is located on the banks of the Hydra River and hosts a few warehouses, a post office, and an inn. People rarely stay long here, eager to venture out onto one of the several paths leading away from the river and out into the Central Plains.

    Thunder Plains: The Thunder Plains are consistently lashed with vicious thunderstorms making travel for unprepared trainers a dance with death if not adequately equipped. The ferocity of the lightning bolts literally crack the hardened stony ground with every strike, and a Pokémon designed for attracting lightning is a nigh-on requisite for travelling through the plains without being smote. Indeed, such are the conditions that only the hardiest Pokémon reside here, calling the plains home.

    Hydro-Electric Dam: Relatively new to the island is the Hydro-Electric dam, a massive construct that has created a reservoir of water several dozen million cubic feet in volume. Chosen due it being a renewable source of clean energy, and promoted for the fact it produces no waste or greenhouse gases, the dam has become a tourist attraction in its own right, its rich power source attracting a large variety of electric Pokémon to the area.

    Energos Quarry: As a mine abandoned after an errant spark caused a massive cave-in that crushed hundreds of workers, Energos Quarry is full of an electro-magnetic ore that causes electrical devices to malfunction and electric Pokémon to act strangely even inside their Pokéballs. Although abandoned, there are still many gemstones to be found in the tunnels and mines within, although plucky adventurers are warned that some of the Pokémon living in the mines may be reluctant to part with the treasures.

    Crater Lake: Atop an extinct volcano, its crater is now a freshwater lake and home to many wild Pokémon. A travel lodge awaits weary visitors who have trekked up the mountainside, where they can rest their weary bones and have a bite to eat. Some say ancient Pokémon reside way down deep inside the throat of the volcano but nobody has been able to verify these stories.



    Southern Gulf
    The southern regions of Whale Island are known to be beautiful grassland with rolling hills and grazing Mareep by the thousand, as well as vast forests protected by the Whale Island Conservation Society. Some unapproved logging has been taking place recently, however, causing much stress to both the WICS and the local wildlife, prompting the Pokémon to show higher levels of hostility toward trainers and picnickers alike.

    Areas:
    Pearl Cove: The entry point to Pearl City, the southern gulf's main residential and commercial district, you're sure to find some activity with which to pass the time. The WICS Head Office is located here, as is the local Pokémon Centre, but due to the illegal logging that has been taking place in the vicinity recently the locals have become quite suspicious of strangers. Win their trust and they may be able to point you in a rewarding direction.

    Raikou's Effigy: A life size stone statue of the Legendary Thunder Pokémon Raikou, depicted in an eternal roar. Some say the statue is real, and that Raikou comes to life when needed. Whether this is true or not, the statue has a powerful presence and some swear its eyes follow them across the grassy fields.

    Blitz River: The second longest river on the island, the Blitz is a lovely crystalline river that is greatly admired. While the water seems pure, there have been reports that the local Pokémon in the region use it for all their cleaning duties, making it rather impure for the body. The fishing at the riverside, however, is unparalleled.

    Cascade Waterfall: The largest of a series of waterfalls along the Blitz River, the Cascade Waterfall is by far the most amazing of them all. Walking trails lead up and down either side of the falls and through the surrounding bushland, making it a lovely place to visit on anyone's itinerary. Wild Pokémon have become accustomed to the number of people visiting here and can sometimes be quite friendly.

    Pirate's Cove: A sizable gulf set in some cliffs, with torrential waters at the entrance preventing proper investigation. So called for the fact that pirates frequented the cove for their plunder, and located not too far from the Laguna Peninsula, the rapids have resulted in the area being less cordoned as a tourist spot. Though several people have managed to brave the waters, using their powerful Surfing Pokémon to break through, none have emerged from the hallowed cliffs, rumoured to contain vast swathes of booty.



    Western Shore
    The western shore of Whale Island has more rocky, craggy cliffs than stunning sandy beaches, but has its own attractions nonetheless. Several villages and freshwater springs dot the area. Whether you're here for relaxation, adrenaline rushing water sports, or to find new Pokémon, you're sure to find something to keep you happy during your stay.

    Areas:
    Delphin Harbour: A bustling harbour and the entry point for Whale Island's western shore, Delphin Harbour is practically the sister port to the east coast's Pieli Harbour. Shops to tend to most of your needs can be found upon the main strip making it a pleasant place to explore, and if you're feeling a little adventurous you can walk to the far end of the harbour to find the famous blowhole which then leads around to Delphin Beach and its accompanying boardwalk and amusement park.

    The Lighthouse: A lighthouse situated atop the cliffs overlooking the Delphin Heads, the lighthouse has long since been unmanned. It's light never goes out, however, despite the fact no maintenance has been carried out here for more than forty years...

    Suicune's Effigy: A life size stone statue of the Legendary Aurora Pokémon Suicune, depicted in an eternal roar. Some say the statue is real, and that Suicune comes to life when needed. Whether this is true or not, the statue has a powerful presence and some swear its eyes follow them as they pass by.

    Wet'n'Wild Recreation Park: A massive water theme park set in a deep valley through which the Centaur River flows. With many rides and water based games, discover the wide range of activities to get the heart racing, such as sky diving, bungee jumping, para-sailing and jet skiing to name a few. You can swim with the tamed water Pokémon, have fun partaking in other activities, or simply laze by a pool. However you choose to spend your time you're sure to have fun doing it.

    Crescent Trench: About a mile offshore is a deep sea trench in the shape of a crescent moon. Only some of the stronger Pokémon can be found here but it gets pretty cold and dark way down in the depths of the ocean. Your Pokémon will need some special training before you even attempt exploring this area.

Some say ancient Pokémon reside way down deep inside the throat of the volcano but nobody has been able to verify these stories.

    "Alright Cyndaquil, we're almost to the top," Chad said. He looked down the hill to see his Pokemon behind him. Cyndaquil was a few feet below him. "How are you doing, buddy?" He seemed to be struggling a little.

    "Quil! Cynda cyn cynda cyndaquil," he replied. As he spoke his voice began to slow down and tire out.

    "Getting tired? There's a lodge coming up," Chad hopped down to his fiery friend. "We can rest there for a little while. Then I'd like to explore the area for a bit. Have you ever heard of a lake in a volcano?" Cyndaquil tilted his head inquisitively. "Well, a lake with water in a volcano?" Chad clarified. He picked Cyndaquil up. "Now if you promise to leave your flame extinguished until we get to the lodge, I'll carry you the rest of the way." Cyndaquil quickly squeaked noting his approval. "Let's go."

    Chad began to climb again. He knew he was getting near the top because the slope started to get steeper. He started thinking about his parents. They had told him of the famous Crater Lake of Whale Island. He never believed their stories before, and now he was going to be able to see if they were right. Now this thoughts shifted towards his climbing. As the slope got even steeper, it was becoming difficult to hold Cyndaquil with one arm while climbing with his other arm and legs. He reached a point where he could stand firm.

    "I think from here to the top, you'll need to ride on my backpack," Chad said holding Cyndaquil out facing him. "I need all my limbs to climb now. We're almost there." He lifted Cyndaquil to his shoulder, and he climbed onto Chad's back. "Let's get this climb over with now."

    Chad climbed up the slope of the volcano with Cyndaquil on his back. It appeared to go faster now that he had full use of his arms and legs. He looked up, and he could see that the top was in sight. As he climbed higher, the outline of a building began to appear. Chad smiled, and he climbed a little faster, brimming with excitement. Finally, he reached the top. He laid on the ground for a moment to catch his breath. Cyndaquil jumped off.

    "There. We made it," he said breathing heavily. Chad crawled away from the edge. "I don't know about you, but I'd rather not do that again for a long time!" He stood up and began to survey his surroundings. He turned around, and behind him, he could see the lodge. It wasn't a tall building, but it was long. "I hope there's somewhere we can rest in there." He turned again to look out over the horizon. "Aren't the Central Plains beautiful? Farmland as far as the eye can see. Whale Island is a great place. We should check other areas of the island out after we relax a bit here." Cyndaquil squealed in agreement. "Now let's make our way to the lodge to rest. Maybe we can see the lake from there."

    East Coast
    By far the most popular tourist destination spot, the East Coast of Whale Island seems to be constantly abuzz with activity both day and night. Unfortunately the downside to this is the crime rate has risen so be sure to keep an eye out for the con artists and thieves who are looking to swindle unsuspecting travellers out of their holiday spending money. Despite this downside the east coast is a great place to holiday, especially if you're looking to make the most of daytime and night time entertainment.

    Areas:
    Pieli Harbour: Both a large harbour and resort, Pieli Harbour is famous for the best ice cream in the land, as well as its massive shipping stations, with boats as small as canoes to colossal ferries. The resort itself is archetypical of a seaside funfair, with several small rides as well as a roller coaster and ferris wheel, though the promenade at night is a sight for sore eyes to drown their sorrows on.
    "One Classic Pieli, please!" Charlotte exclaimed full of happiness and glee, finally having reached the ice cream man after ten long minutes of queueing. At last he was going to taste the legendary Classic Pieli, the best ice cream ever in the region, in the whole world! Everyone knew that the Classic Pieli was easily the best; it was every child's dream to get at least one lick of the elusive ice cream.*

    One longing minute later, Charlotte was walking down the street next to the coast, looking around with much curiosity at the the small funfair rides, the rollercoaster and the ferris wheel nearby. It sure was a busy place; tourists were everywhere, shopping at stalls perched on the sidewalk, taking a walk with their family, having a great time with their friends and Pokémon, as well as just relaxing on the benches. Flame walked beside her as Charlotte continued to lick her precious Classic Pieli, savouring every lick. Thank goodness that Flare wasn't into ice creams.*

    "This place really is amazing," Charlotte murmured in wonder as she settled down on a bench, Flare on her laps, her head resting on her paws. Topaz released herself from her Poké Ball, eager to see the outside world, and Charlotte hugged her, pulling her closer.*

    She'd heard countless tales about the East Coast of Whale Island from her friends back at her hometown. Most of the things they said were either exaggerated beyond imagination or just plan obvious lies. She was smart enough not to listen to them. But the few things she had thought were decent had just been proved true; that Pieli Harbour was the most impressive place on Whale Island by far, that there was a little funfair there, and that the best ice cream, the Classic Pieli, came from that very place. It truly was magnificent.*

    Eventually, Charlotte finished her scrumptious Classic Pieli, greedily swallowing the last bit left of the cone, and licked her lips, wanting more. But one ice cream would definitely do for the day; after all, the ice cream was crazily expensive, and she wasn't willing to waste her money on another ice cream. Instead, she leant back and relaxed, her two Pokémon by each side, as they leaned against her drowsily as they looked on at the sea.

    Scott had been looking foward to going to Whale island for the longest time to take a beach vacation. Now that it was officially open to the public, he could finally go. He was dressed to spend a day at the beach. Wearing a pair of green swim trunks, with a green tank top, and flip flops on his feet. As per usual, he brought along Shaana, his Munna, who sat on her usual place, on her trainer's shoulder. He had also made sure he was well prepared, even making sure to apply SPF 30 sun screen before he came. He wasn't about to risk getting burned. He also brought along some lotion for reapplication when necessary, as well as a few other essential items.

    After he arrived on the island, the first thing he did was head straight to the recreation park on the Western Shore. The first thing on his agenda, was to take a dip in the pool. He wanted to relax for a bit, and he wasn't quite ready to partake in the heart racing activities the place was known for just yet. The twenty-one year old trainer went into the pool area, set his bag by a nearby chair, took off his shirt and shoes, then he proceeded to jump into the pool.

    He landed in the water with a big splash. He stayed submerged for a few seconds, before coming up for air. Then he laid on his back, put his hands behind his head, and floated in the water. "Ah, the water is the perfect tempature. Now this is the way you start a vacation, right Shaana?"

    "Mun." Said the Dream Eater Pokemon, who was hovering a few inches above her trainer. She wasn't interested in going swimming herself.

Whether this is true or not, the statue has a powerful presence and some swear its eyes follow them across the grassy fields.


    Fiona and Black began walking along the path of the Whale Island. It was kinda foggy, but many details we're seeable, The only reason they came there was that Black egged Fiona (A.K.A. Abused) into seeing Raikou's Effigy, a statue that rose above all the others, representing Raikou. You could always count of Black for finding this out - she had a habit for fiddling around with maps and pokedex's, yearning for some sort of entertainment. Obviously she found a lot of interesting things, including games, puzzles, and sometimes camera's. She was snapping photos of the Effigy, but Fiona unwillingly took the pokédex out of the Purrloins hands and deleted the pictures every now and then. She did not know if they we're safe or not, so she was always 100% shy and cautious, in case she fell into some sort of random ditch. As they began advancing toward their destination, Black slapped Fiona as if she was in a trance, and pointed west.

    "What is it?" Asked Fiona with fear building in her voice, and gulped. "Any trouble?"

    But what she saw caused no trouble.

    Out of the fog, A beautiful trench was formed out of the ground, water gushing everywhere, pokémon splashing in every sort of direction. She gasped and smiled, while Black grinned a sort of evil grin, but then plucked a fruit out of a tree and began to eat it, instantly spitting it out. She then pointed toward the distance, and a statue was awaiting them in the mist. They walked over there, hoping no dangers we're there, ready to attack. They had enough adventures in the world anyway, but as many said, you could never have enough.

    Connor frowned while sitting on a bench as he looked at the map of Whale Island. He was turning it around in various angles still not believing that even with a map he has ended up in the wrong area. Again.

    "You know it always bugs me that no matter what I do, I always end up in the wrong location. Why is that?" he asked Gaspard, his Aipom, and Foster, his Shuppet, who were both enjoying a Classic Pieli. Gaspard in particular loved its sweetness and was eating it like there's no tomorrow. The Aipom just shrugged at Connor's question, having gotten used to his lack of sense of direction while Foster, who was still relatively new to the team, just laughed at his Trainer's misfortune once again. Connor sighed at the two.

    "I really need to do something about this," Connor muttered as he now looked around at his surroundings while eating his own Classic Pieli, the Pieli Harbor somehow reminding him of home, back in Canalave City. "You know Gaspard, I wonder how my parents are doing? They never did approve me of going out around the world... it was a miracle that they even let me keep you! I know they still don't like you though..." he said to Gaspard who had just finished his ice cream while petting his head. Foster who was curious at what Connor was saying asked, "Shuppet?" Connor realized this and turned to face the curious Shuppet

    "Oh that's right, you, Humphrey, and Marco still don't know much about us huh? Well, let's just say that I had a rocky start in my journey..." Connor said with a sad expression on his face, "You know what, I'll tell you all about it when all three of you are together okay?" Foster nodded, it was then that Connor decided to go around the area with his camera in hand to check out the places around him with Gaspard on his shoulder and Foster floating nearby, "Well guys, break time's over. Let's go around and check out this place shall we?"

    Southern Gulf
    The southern regions of Whale Island are known to be beautiful grassland with rolling hills and grazing Mareep by the thousand, as well as vast forests protected by the Whale Island Conservation Society. Some unapproved logging has been taking place recently, however, causing much stress to both the WICS and the local wildlife, prompting the Pokémon to show higher levels of hostility toward trainers and picnickers alike.

    Cascade Waterfall: The largest of a series of waterfalls along the Blitz River, the Cascade Waterfall is by far the most amazing of them all. Walking trails lead up and down either side of the falls and through the surrounding bushland, making it a lovely place to visit on anyone's itinerary. Wild Pokémon have become accustomed to the number of people visiting here and can sometimes be quite friendly.
    It had been a while since Stark had been out on an actual adventure with his companions. Mostly they had just traveled around to different resorts around the lands of Fizzy Bubbles with occasional side tracks in strange places. However those stops had been short overall and the trainer was beginning to long for a little excitement again. His time spent in a Dream World had renewed his desire to see the world for what it was. For a while he had considered visiting the famed Lighthouse of the isle or maybe even one of the two Effigies dedicated to the legendary beasts, but eventually, his love of nature and of waterfalls in particular brought him to what was considered one of the most amazing ones in all the lands.

    The Cascade Waterfall had quite the reputation and Stark was not about to let the opportunity to see it pass. With any luck he wouldn't have to worry about militant trainers causing trouble here, unlike when he visited the falls of the Cloud Garden. That had been quite the mess and one Stark would just as soon forget given the way two factions brutally attacked each other while putting innocent bystanders at risk. Stark himself wasn't even sure how he managed to get out of it safely. Mostly due to his partners he supposed.

    However, this time he had new partner with him. It was almost like he had begun his journey all over again with new and old friends alike. Friends he was hoping to get a chance to know better as time went on. Sure they had trained together in the past. Learned a few moves here and there, but this was an opportunity to really get to know one another. And Stark was more than happy to oblige.

    The trainer continued his trek up the trail toward the falls. Excitement building within him. He could remember back when he first started his journey how Cyndaquil would ride on his shoulder or how Spearow used to sit atop his head and peck at him. In those days his ability to teach and control his pokemon were rather limited. When Buizel raided his supply of rare candies, Stark learned how far he still needed to go to become a great trainer. Since those days, he had learned to discipline hie partners as well as teach them the difference between right and wrong. It was all part of the growing up process for all of them. Now Stark was looking forward to doing it with a new generation of partners. Time would only tell just how far they could all go together.

    Western Shore
    The western shore of Whale Island has more rocky, craggy cliffs than stunning sandy beaches, but has its own attractions nonetheless. Several villages and freshwater springs dot the area. Whether you're here for relaxation, adrenaline rushing water sports, or to find new Pokémon, you're sure to find something to keep you happy during your stay.

    Areas:
    The Lighthouse: A lighthouse situated atop the cliffs overlooking the Delphin Heads, the lighthouse has long since been unmanned. It's light never goes out, however, despite the fact no maintenance has been carried out here for more than forty years...
    Darkness reigns at the foot of the lighthouse. - Japanese Proverb

    Night has fallen on the Western Shore. The normally oppressive heat of daylight on the island has fizzled out with the absence of the sun, and cool darkness has gently embraced the island. Stars glitter in the unpolluted island sky, vastly outnumbering the few island-goers who would still be awake at this hour. To many, this time of night is one of mystery and doubt; to Marion, the darkness is a familiar friend. It hides no secrets from her, unlike the blinding, confusing daylight which would disorient her.

    Holding tightly to her beloved Dragonite, August, the two fly across the starry night sky towards a singular beacon of light, shining brightly like a star that had fallen to Earth. Their eyes are locked on this strange beacon, which shines brilliantly in the darkness. Marion loosens her left hand to point forward towards the light, and whispers to her companion, "Here. Here is the lighthouse. I can't wait to explore this place..."

    August flies towards the lighthouse with precision, speed and grace, as is fitting for a creature of her intense training and rarity. Making a careful landing at the foot of the lighthouse, she turns to ensure that Marion is able to safely dismount. Once Marion is safely on the ground and dusting herself off, August tilts her head slightly, and points to a map in Marion's pocket.

    "Oh, this?" Marion pulls the map out, revealing a standard-issue tourist map of Whale Island. "What about it?"

    August gently takes the map from her trainer's hand, and looks over it carefully, squinting in the darkness. After a time, August shows the map to Marion, pointing to an advertisement under Laguna Peninsula. Even in the darkness, Marion can make out the brightly-colored text of the ad, which speaks of the mysterious Ghostly Galleon, a popular myth in the Whale Islands. August again tilts her head and makes a confused, questioning utterance.

    "Oh, that. Yes, I considered going there... but there's a certain subtlety to the mystery of this lighthouse, a certain... fascinating question that hovers over its continuous dependability. I feel like many trainers wouldn't give this place a second look." Marion stares up at the glowing beacon as she says this. "I think there's something going on here that we should investigate. Something... not of this world, perhaps? Or maybe the answer is simpler than that..."

    August nods in understanding. She stares up at the beacon alongside Marion, thinking for a moment, before pointing up and flapping its wings, as if suggesting flying up to the beacon to take a look.

    "It would certainly be the quickest way to solve the mystery, but I fear the two of us may go blind from the light." Marion chuckles. "Perhaps we should try solving this mystery from the bottom up. Who knows what clues we may find along the way..."

    Marion and August approach the ground entrance of the lighthouse hand in hand, with August carefully ensuring that her trainer does not trip and fall on the rocky cliffside as they walk. Marion smiles with appreciation at her dear friend. "Thanks, August... You know how lacking in the grace department I am." Marion laughs softly, as August returns Marion's smile.

    A tourist magnet, Whale Island is a large region of land that was formed from volcanic activity a millennia ago. There is a strange abundance of electrical energy present on this island which, rather than posing a problem, has complemented the island entirely. The entire area is a haven for water Pokémon with even the mountain craters filled to the brim, the abundance of water sports and holiday travel locations ensuring the time you spend here is never dull. Cities and townships are located all across the island, with resorts, inns, and travel lodges in ample supply. The Hydra River is the main waterway, starting up in the north-west area of the island and down through the Central Plains where the great Hydro-Electric Dam has been constructed, before leading down to the south-eastern corner of the island and back out to sea. Whether it's action water sports you're after, or just lazing on a nice stretch of beach somewhere, you'll definitely find the place you're looking for on the famous Whale Island.



    Laguna Peninsula
    The Laguna Peninsula, also known as "Pirate Isle", is mainly forest and is famous for once harbouring a particularly nasty clan of pirates whose treasure is rumoured to still be hidden away somewhere in the vicinity. The peninsula is located on the south east end of Whale Island and although the pirates have long since vacated the land, they've certainly left their mark. Other than a rest house occupied by the peninsula's caretaker, there are no other dwellings here, the entire peninsula being under the protection of the Whale Island Conservation Society (WICS). It is said secret hideouts are cleverly hidden everywhere, so even if you're not aware of it you'll definitely have passed several of them if you're to take a scenic walk across the peninsula. Visit Pirate Isle and you'll be in for a jolly good time.


    The Caverns: While Laguna Beach surrounds the majority of the Laguna Peninsula, there is one stretch of coast whose rocky cliffs are not so inviting. Here the waters are quite treacherous and if you sail too close the risk of being slammed against the rocks is very high. Caverns dot the cliffside, making them the perfect hideout for the rumoured hidden treasure, but they are also home to many wild Pokémon. Explore at your own risk!
    "Neptune, Larry, I think we've reached the summit!" yells Cele as the pair of Pokemon drearily walked up the cliffside. They were both tired, but who could blame them after they had been walking for hours without rest. There were signs of relief on their faces as they awaited the rest that they thought they were getting after reaching the summit. Looking up, Cele sees another hidden path and remarks, "False alarm, guys, there's still more mountain to be explored. But let's have a short break anyway." The Aron and Squirtle beamed with joy at this announcement as they lay down peacfully on the ground.

    Taking a moment from his mountain climbing, Cele stops walking to catch his breath and spectacle at the sight that presented itself towards him. The beatiful turquoise sea streached out in front of him, as the sunset reflected off the surface of the water made for an extremely breathtaking sight. Neptune's eyes sparkled in amazement at the view, he was completely mesmerized. Larry, however, took one look at the sea and quickly went over to the nearest rock and began to chew on it, obviously not caring about the view. "Oh, Larry." Cele mutters silently to himself, while petting the Aron on his head.

    "When are we gonna come across anything unusual or special in our journeys?" Cele thinks to himself. "Probably never, that's just how lucky I am." he says with a frown. "Come on guys, let's call it a day and get back to the bottom of this boring mountain. We should hurry back before it gets dark." Cele yells to his Pokemon, before tripping over a broken stone formation. "Seriously! My luck is terrible these days." Cele shouts at no one in particular. Dusting himself off, he feels an eerie wind blow from the left. Immediately turning, he is greeted by a hole in the side of the cliff. A cavern, to be more precise.

    "Hey Neptune, Larry, I want you guys to come see this." Cele calls out to the Squirtle and Aron that were still lagging behind him. "Look." Cele says, pointing towards the cavern entrance. "Who knows what might be in there." Cele wonders. "What do you guys say? Are you ready for adventure?" Cele asks, with slight confidence in his voice. "Squirt! Aron ron!" the Pokemon answer, nodding their heads. "Okay, let's go then!" Cele yells, running into the cave, not knowing what awaits him.

    Northern Beaches
    Unless you're travelling along the Hydra River, the northern beaches tend to attract the wealthier crowd due to the fact the small beaches lining its shore have been purchased privately by those who have subsequently built properties by the water. Some of the rarer water and electric type Pokémon can be found along here, but if a wealthy beach owner finds you trespassing on their land there may be some unpleasant consequences.

    Areas:

    Raine's Wildlife Park: A nice spot for a family day out, Raine's Wildlife Park is open to visitors who are interested in seeing some of Whale Island's native Pokémon without having to venture too far themselves.



    Joshua sniffed the ocean air deeply, and smiled at his new friend, Aegis the Squirtle who he'd recently adopted. "I bet it feels good to be in such a watery area, eh Aegis?"

    "Squirtle squirt!" the Pokémon cried out enthusiastically.

    "Well, we can lie on the beach later - now seems like a good opportunity to try and find some new, possibly rare Pokémon... Assuming you're allowed to go for captures here..." Joshua shook his head. He'd made that mistake before, and it had ended... Badly. He'd been chased out of the park by a horde of angry Rangers, and an even angrier Ursaring... Bears do not like Pokéballs. Aegis hadn't been around for that mishap, so he simply stared at the reminiscing man blankly.

    "Squir...?"

    "Hmm? Oh, right, we're here. Raine's Wildlife Park! Family fun with Whale Island's native Pokémon. Who could ask for more?" Apparently not many, given the size of the line. "... This might take a while..."

    ---

    It was a full fifteen minutes before Joshua and Aegis reached the front of the line. Freakin families freakin everywhere. "One adult and one Pokémon, please. Quick question though, as a trainer, am I able to capture any of the wild Pokémon in here?"

    Default Whale Island Adventures: Batch 1

    Hello everyone! I'll be updating all of you during your stay here at Whale Island. I hope you have fun - I know I will! Be sure to reply in Size 1 and Color deepskyblue. Also, do try to avoid self-updating. While I appreciate description on your part, saying something is there when it isn't or that something is a way not previously described kinda counts as such. Most of the time I'll just go with it, or I may flat out ignore those bits, or even have random misfortune fall upon you if you overdo it. I don't see really see that last bit happening though; you all seem like good people. Also, I'll try to make updates a weekly thing. If you're not included in any one batch, I'll make it a priority to include you in the next one. Anyways, that's about it. Here we go!


    ::Pieli Harbor::

    Flame Mistress: There are many reasons not to miss Whale Island's tourist hotspot, the East Coast, such as the therapeutical sands of Ampere Beach, the surreal beauty of the Rainbow Reefs, or the dazzling nightlife of the cosmopolitan Seaside City, to name a few. For some however, a taste of Pieli Harbour's scrumptious, world-class ice cream was reason enough, and you were one of such people. Having endured several eternal minutes of agony queueing in line for your turn, you finally get a piece of the heavenly treat, and oh was it good! The creamy goodness felt like fine silk rubbing against your skin as it melted on your mouth and softly made its way into your stomach. Nobody could tell exactly what the Pieli Classic was made of, but you could feel a plethora of everchanging notes resulting from a vast array of unknown fruits, herbs and spices. Whatever it was, it thoroughly tested your ability to avoid eating it too fast. You were happy your partner, Flare, wasn't a big fan of ice creams, though a part of you felt that this particular dessert could perhaps make the young Vulpix turn around its opinion entirely; a theory you were not yet ready to test now, if ever.

    Ice cream in hand, you wander around looking for what more Pieli had to offer. The area was lively and bursting with activity as both locals and tourists went on about their respective businesses. Many boats of varying shapes and sizes parked along the coast, some disembarking various goodies whereas others were just getting ready to set sail. The sight of a rather luxurious personal cruise catches your eye and you wonder just what lucky soul could afford such a ride. The various funfair rides tickle your curiosity even more however, and you turn your eyes to the massive rollercoaster as you hear the distant hysterical screams of its passengers; the Raikou and Suicune themed trains racing, circling and looping over one another at extreme speeds much like their legendary counterparts. It looked like the kind of fun that would twist and scramble your innards and yet leave you craving for more. In contrast, the huge ferris wheel provided a far less radical experience in exchange for a priceless view of the area; a tempting offer.

    Awestruck, you stop to settle down on a bench and rest. Flare hops on and lays atop your lap and even topaz comes out to better look at your surroundings as you lovingly hug the fluffy bird closer. Up until now, what you had seen of East Coast wasn't terribly impressive for you, but Pieli Harbor was beyond expectations and you thought it the best place on Whale Island by far; a thought which many would agree with.

    As you finally finish your bit of heaven in a cone, you find yourself wanting more, but the injustice of paying so much for another one makes you decide against it. You choose to sit back and relax along with your Pokémon, soothing yourself with the constant murmur of the cityfolk, the cries of the greedy Wingulls, and the sound and smell of the ocean. Your peace was short-lived however as you notice a young boy about your same age approach you. He had slightly tanned skin and short black hair, and wore a simple outfit consisting of a white shirt, cacky shorts and sandals.

    "Hi there," he said a bit on the shy side, "I'm sorry, I just felt like talking to you. You have a very beautiful Vulpix there; I don't see those very often. My name's Phillip. Is this your first time here?"

    Looks like someone's interested in making a new friend, and he sounded like he's really been around.

    What will you do?


    uhhhh: You curse your sense of direction as you find yourself hopelessly lost in Pieli Harbour. Whatever your original destination was, the fact is that you weren't there and that frustrated you greatly. Why did these things have to happen to you all the time? Gaspard just shrugs, the Aipom's interest being more focused on devouring the glorious Pieli Classic he held on his tail than answering your rhetorical question. Foster however, was just greatly amused by your misfortune and you sigh at the lack of moral support you got from your partners.

    Looking around while letting your woes drown in the deliciousness of your icy treat, you start feeling nostalgic as you remember your home town, Canalave City. You think of mom and dad and the rocky start you went through to go out and adventure with Gaspard, your first Pokémon. Foster wasn't quite following but you promise to tell the story later on along with the rest of your squad.

    Finishing up your ice cream you decide that it's time to move on as you get up, camera in hand, ready to capture a few album-worthy shots. Pieli Harbour had a lot of inspiring material for a photographer, and you easily find yourself capturing many interesting scenes. A record breaking line for ice cream; the gleeful faces of small children riding various funfair rides like the Ponyta carrousel or the Caterpie train; the exact moment of impact as a sailor's Machop piledrives anothers Poliwhirl into the concrete, marking the end of an exciting battle; and many more.

    "Eeeeeeeee! That is such an adorable Aipom!" you hear the startling shrill of a young beauty who rapidly approached you.

    "Awww, look at him! So cute!" responded her no less impressive friend.

    "What's his name?"

    "Can I hug him?"

    "Oh you have a camera! Can we take a picture with him?"

    "I wanna take him home!"

    It seems Gaspard got some fans already! Foster in the other hand looked forever ignored and you could only wonder what kind of bitter, naughty thoughts ran through his mind.

    What will you do?


    ::Crater Lake::

    jolteonjak: It had been a long hike up the mountain and you could already feel you were nearing the top. Your partner was a bit behind and as you check up on him you could see this was taking a lot more out of him than it did to you. It was understandable though, the higher you got, the lighter and colder the air did, and combined with the effort of climbing uphill it was enough to tire out anyone. For the small and short-legged Cyndaquil, it was probably twice as bad. You cheer him up with the promise of a safe haven to rest on being within reach and offer to carry him with you the rest of the way; an offer which he gladly took.

    You resume your hiking and you start to feel anxious and excited as you recalled the stories told about the lake. However, the closer you got to your goal the more challenging did this test get and you had to make use of every resource to keep going on. That wasn't enough to stop you though as the mere sight of the summit being so close raises your morale and you keep on going faster and faster. Hanging on inside your backpack, the Cyndaquil was certainly enjoying the ride.

    As you finally reach the top you lay on the floor out of breath, but happy. Your partner was equally joyous and gets off your bag not wanting to keep adding extra weight to your back. You stand up and you almost gasp at the sight that layed in front of you: a huge lake, pure blue in color, that you reckoned must be over a mile in diameter, yet clearly defined by the volcano's edge. A two-floor wooden lodge, old and humble in appearance, was not too far away from where you stood, near the edge of the lake. It looked big enough to hold a large group of travelers, but it didn't seem like it did so very often. You turn around to appreciate the panoramic view of the Central Plains before heading off to get some rest, taking a good look at the endless green which ran deep into the horizon and you make a mental note to better explore it later on.

    You make way to the lodge's main entrance and was about to knock the door until it opened all by itself before you. In front of you stood a monster Quagsire, standing tall at about two and a half meters in height! You didn't remember your parents telling you about this! Your Pokédex didn't even register them getting so big but there it was, looking at you with a blank face.

    What will you do?


    ::Raikou's Effigy::

    Nightfall715: You find yourself walking on an unusually foggy morning on south Whale Island in search for the ancient effigy of the legendary Raikou. Though the area wasn't of particular interest for you, you were pretty much dragged by force by your whimsical Purrloin who hoped to quench her curiosity and find some form of entertainment in the process. Sometimes it felt like you were her human rather than her being your Pokémon, but you were ok with that; you trusted Black and the feeling was mutual for her. Still, you can't help deleting the pictures taken by your partner who had the habit of taking your Pokédex and fiddle with its various applications; you never know when they might fall in the wrong hands after all.

    Lost in your thoughts you're brought back to reality as Black gives you a wake-up slap and points west with a naughty grin. You turn around expecting the worst already but there was nothing to worry about, or at least not yet. It wasn't very clear, but you notice a large static silouette and as you near it the fog seems to almost magically disappear, allowing you a clear view of the majestic statue of Raikou, frozen in an intimidating roar that almost ran a chill down your spine. You felt something strange in the air and you got goosebumps as invisible tongues tickled your skin. Beside you Black had all hairs on end; an amusing sight but when she starts laughing at you you knew you probably didn't look all that different yourself!

    You soon realize you're both not alone as Black points towards the stone statue and you notice a small Shinx resting under the thunder legend's shade. It suddenly wakes up and calmy looks up to you both with an inexpressive and unnerving glare. You wonder what's going to happen next as it walks forward and stands a small distance in front of you, gauging up your intentions; Black in turn returned the glare with interested eyes and set herself between you and the wild Pokémon. Talk about an awkward encounter, but you can feel things getting a bit tense here.

    What will you do?


    ::Wet'n'Wild Recreation Park::

    Mon1010: It had been your dream to spend a nice vacation at Whale Island and now you found yourself making that dream come true as you arrive to the Wet'n'Wild Recreation Park, dressed up for the occasion and accompanied by your cute partner, Shaana. The park offered many fun rides and games, all of which you were sure to get good watery fun, as well as several other adrenaline-pumping activities. Yet, you weren't quite ready to be carrying your heart on your throat and instead you take it easy as you dive straight into the park's swimming pool; comfortably floating on your back after you resurface. The water had just the perfect level of coolness to provide absolute refreshment against the merciless heat of summer. You were definitely enjoying yourself and you share the feeling with your Munna who wasn't quite as interested in taking a bath, but was very happy that you at least were having fun.

    You hear someone calling out to you, much to your surprise, and as you stand up your eyes meet those of a cute brunette on a yellow bikini. It seems a game of pool volleyball was about to start and they could use another person!

    What will you do?

The peninsula is located on the south east end of Whale Island and although the pirates have long since vacated the land, they've certainly left their mark.

    Ghostly Galleon: It is said that when Black Friday falls upon a night with a full moon, the Ghostly Galleon will appear, unaware that she has sailed through a rift in time. Fact or fiction? Only time will tell...


    "Alright then Gene, follow me." Jayce, and Gene the Metang, were finally nearing the South East end of Whale Island. The full moon shone above them shining with an eerie light. Jayce looked back towards Gene and he too seemed to glow eerily. His old trainer did say that he always like being polished but this glow seemed eerie.

    Jayce had recently obtained Gene in a trade with another trainer and it was a good idea in Jayce's opinion. Gene seemed like a powerful Pokemon but it was really...interesting too. Gene has little motivation to do anything himself. Gene is the most obedient Pokemon Jayce had ever seen, which was a nice change from Snivy, who enjoyed tormenting and disobeying Jayce, unless it really mattered. It seems that Gene contents itself in doing whatever it's trainer wants. It was a little disturbing. Either way they continued on closing in on the Laguna Peninsula. Jayce checked his watch and it seemed that it was nearing midnight. Jayce could see a dock in the distance near the forest that encompassed most of the "Pirate Isle". Around there he could see gaping holes, likely dug by other people exploring who were looking for any possible treasure. He turned around to Gene and began to walk backward to ask, "Alright Gene, I'll ask you again. Where do you want to go?" Gene was unresponsive. Jayce sighed. He knew that Gene was able to communicate with soundwaves but... why didn't he? "Just point where you want to go will you please?"

    Gene was unsure about this new trainer. It seemed odd to Gene that this trainer would ask for it's opinion so often. Gene wanted to go wherever Jayce wanted, it didn't care where they went. This trainer also seemed to have little experience compared to it's old one. Gene was wondering if it was better off with it's old trainer...

    "Look Gene just point where you want to go..." Gene pointed at Jayce. "No...I'm not going anywhere until you show me where you want to go." Gene would have rolled it's eyes if it could. It had to get stuck with someone extremely stubborn. Ironic, since Gene was being just as stubborn as Jayce. However Gene finally pointed towards the edge of the island, outside of the forest. Jayce took in a deep breath and sighed with relief. "Thank you Gene... Now let's get going." So the duo were now going to begin the exploration of "Pirate Island". Jayce looked back at the path they had come from with unease. Not everyone who goes adventuring makes it back. He walked onward with Gene, hoping that he wouldn't be one of those people.

    Thanks a bunch Balmund! Now then...

Gaspard just shrugs, the Aipom's interest being more focused on devouring the glorious Pieli Classic he held on his tail than answering your rhetorical question. Foster however, was just greatly amused by your misfortune and you sigh at the lack of moral support you got from your partners.

    Looking around while letting your woes drown in the deliciousness of your icy treat, you start feeling nostalgic as you remember your home town, Canalave City. You think of mom and dad and the rocky start you went through to go out and adventure with Gaspard, your first Pokémon. Foster wasn't quite following but you promise to tell the story later on along with the rest of your squad.

    Finishing up your ice cream you decide it's time that it's time to move on as you get up, camera in hand, ready to capture a few album-worthy shots. Pieli Harbour had a lot of inspiring material for a photographer, and you easily find yourself capturing many interesting scenes. A record breaking line for ice cream; the gleeful faces of small children riding various funfair rides like the Ponyta carrousel or the Caterpie train; the exact moment of impact as a sailor's Machop piledrives anothers Poliwhirl into the concrete, marking the end of an exciting battle; and many more.

    "Eeeeeeeee! That is such an adorable Aipom!" you hear the startling shrill of a young beauty who rapidly approached you.

    "Awww, look at him! So cute!" responded her no less impressive friend.

    "What's his name?"

    "Can I hug him?"

    "Oh you have a camera! Can we take a picture with him?"

    "I wanna take him home!"

    It seems Gaspard got some fans already! Foster in the other hand looked forever ignored and you could only wonder what kind of bitter, naughty thoughts ran through his mind.

    What will you do?
    Even though Connor had ended up on the wrong harbor, wanting to go to Delphin Harbor and take photos there instead, he still managed to get good photos for his portfolio in Pieli Harbor. The photographer wandered around the area looking for some good areas to take photos of. He went back to the ice cream store to see that the line for the ice cream got extremely long.

    "Whoa! That's a pretty long line! I know the ice cream's delicious but is it really THAT tasty?" Connor, said as he was surprised at how long the line was along with Gaspard and Foster, staring at the long line of people and pokemon who wanted a scoop of the harbor's famous ice cream. "You know, I wonder which one would taste better, a classic Pieli, or a Casteliacone?" Connor wondered about that as he took some photos of the line and went on.

    Connor's second stop was some funfair rides, particularly the Ponyta carousel and the Caterpie train as he saw children riding on them and were having a good time. Connor smiled at the sight and thought to take photos of them as well. Gaspard seemed to want a ride on the carousel, "Hehe, we'll ride there later okay Gaspard? I still want to see more of the place," Gaspard nodded with his signature toothy grin. Foster was thinking of pranking some kids but Connor and Gaspard quickly stopped him.

    His third stop was at a battlefield with a Machop and a Poliwhirl fighting each other. Connor has seen machops before back at Sinnoh but was unfamiliar at the poliwhirl. He then took out his Pokedex to scan both.

    Quote Originally Posted by Pokedex

    Poliwhirl, the Tadpole Pokemon. The spiral pattern on its belly subtly undulates. Staring at it gradually causes drowsiness.
    "I see... this looks to be an interesting battle," he said as he focused his camera on the match. He was reminded of his loss against a trainer named Blaze with his Buneary and decided to take some notes on his head as well for future strategies. He saw Gaspard's sad expression as the monkey was probably remembering the same thing, "It's all right Gaspard. We win some, we lose some. That's the way life goes. We'll just have to try and win the next battle next time alright?" he said as he patted Gaspard's head, assuring him. When he turned to see the battle again and saw the Machop piledriving the Poliwhirl into the concrete, he saw that as a good photo opportunity and quickly took a snapshot of it.

    Connor went around the harbor some more and after taking a lot of good-quality photos decided to take a break from photography. "Wow, this place isn't bad at all! I've got myself some pretty cool photos here!" Connor said as he was looking at the various pictures he had made throughout the day on his camera when suddenly:

    "Eeeeeeeee! That is such an adorable Aipom!" a startling shrill of a young beauty was heard who rapidly approached Gaspard.

    "Awww, look at him! So cute!" responded her no less impressive friend.

    "What's his name?"

    "Can I hug him?"

    "Oh you have a camera! Can we take a picture with him?"

    "I wanna take him home!"

    Connor was stunned for a moment after seeing the two beauties approach him, admiring his Aipom. It was when he saw Foster probably thinking of something negative for ignoring him that he got back to his senses. "No Foster, don't do anything to them," he said to Foster who reluctantly obliged. Gaspard was feeling quite flustered and was blushing at the two ladies were saying to him.

    "Err... excuse me ladies,' he said while still trying to get his composure back, "His name's Gaspard, you'll have to ask him on that one, and sure I'll take a picture of you three, again, if he doesn't mind, I'll have to say no on the last one though, hehe" he said jokingly, "So Gapsard, want to take a picture with them?" Gaspard nodded. "Alright then! I guess I could take one more photo. By the way, my name's Connor, an aspiring photographer. What are your names?" he asked the two ladies.

Though the area wasn't of particular interest for you, you were pretty much dragged by force by your whimsical Purrloin who hoped to quench her curiosity and find some form of entertainment in the process. Sometimes it felt like you were her human rather than her being your Pokémon, but you were ok with that; you trusted Black and the feeling was mutual for her. Still, you can't help deleting the pictures taken by your partner who had the habit of taking your Pokédex and fiddle with its various applications; you never know when they might fall in the wrong hands after all.

    Lost in your thoughts you're brought back to reality as Black gives you a wake-up slap and points west with a naughty grin. You turn around expecting the worst already but there was nothing to worry about, or at least not yet. It wasn't very clear, but you notice a large static silouette and as you near it the fog seems to almost magically disappear, allowing you a clear view of the majestic statue of Raikou, frozen in an intimidating roar that almost ran a chill down your spine. You felt something strange in the air and you got goosebumps as invisible tongues tickled your skin. Beside you Black had all hairs on end; an amusing sight but when she starts laughing at you you knew you probably didn't look all that different yourself!

    You soon realize you're both not alone as Black points towards the stone statue and you notice a small Shinx resting under the thunder legend's shade. It suddenly wakes up and calmy looks up to you both with an inexpressive and unnerving glare. You wonder what's going to happen next as it walks forward and stands a small distance in front of you, gauging up your intentions; Black in turn returned the glare with interested eyes and set herself between you and the wild Pokémon. Talk about an awkward encounter, but you can feel things getting a bit tense here.

    What will you do?


    Fiona and Black we're walking amongst the fog, heading toward Raikou's Effigy. Sometimes, she felt as if she was the Pokémon and Black was the human! She kept on deleting the pictures Black took with the pokédex, the fog was making them blurry anyway. Black always had a odd sort of entertainment, and right now taking pictures was one of those times. Being shy didn't help the matter anyway.

    Suddenly, black slapped her right in the face and pointed to The Effigy. Black was about to start taking pictures, but a small Shinx was staring right in front of them. Black looked up Shinx in the pokédex.

    Quote Originally Posted by Pokédex

    Fiona smiled, while Black started to stick out her tongue and insult the Shinx. Fiona was amazed on how well the Shinx was taking this, but Black was annoyed. Black gestured "I WANNA KILL THIS SHINX" But Fiona shook her head.

    "Its cute," Fiona told Black with a whimper, grinning. "However, lets catch it."

    Black looked dumbfounded, she would rather jump in a lake then be near that Shinx. After all, it was annoying Black. However, Black walked on down her shoulder, and got ready to fight. The Shinx appeared to have saw this coming and got ready too.

    "Alright Black, use Scratch!" She ordered quietly, and black shot out her claws, in preparation to lunge.

    Thank you Balmund! Please, if I ever do self-update, point it out to me. I want to know, so I can make changes and not annoy you and other updaters.

Your partner was a bit behind and as you check up on him you could see this was taking a lot more out of him than it did to you. It was understandable though, the higher you got, the lighter and colder the air did, and combined with the effort of climbing uphill it was enough to tire out anyone. For the small and short-legged Cyndaquil, it was probably twice as bad. You cheer him up with the promise of a safe haven to rest on being within reach and offer to carry him with you the rest of the way; an offer which he gladly took.

    You resume your hiking and you start to feel anxious and excited as you recalled the stories told about the lake. However, the closer you got to your goal the more challenging did this test get and you had to make use of every resource to keep going on. That wasn't enough to stop you though as the mere sight of the summit being so close raises your morale and you keep on going faster and faster. Hanging on inside your backpack, the Cyndaquil was certainly enjoying the ride.

    As you finally reach the top you lay on the floor out of breath, but happy. Your partner was equally joyous and gets off your bag not wanting to keep adding extra weight to your back. You stand up and you almost gasp at the sight that layed in front of you: a huge lake, pure blue in color, that you reckoned must be over a mile in diameter, yet clearly defined by the volcano's edge. A two-floor wooden lodge, old and humble in appearance, was not too far away from where you stood, near the edge of the lake. It looked big enough to hold a large group of travelers, but it didn't seem like it did so very often. You turn around to appreciate the panoramic view of the Central Plains before heading off to get some rest, taking a good look at the endless green which ran deep into the horizon and you make a mental note to better explore it later on.

    You make way to the lodge's main entrance and was about to knock the door until it opened all by itself before you. In front of you stood a monster Quagsire, standing tall at about two and a half meters in height! You didn't remember your parents telling you about this! Your Pokédex didn't even register them getting so big but there it was, looking at you with a blank face.

    What will you do?

    Chad slowly approached the lodge, as he was tired from the climb. He noticed the lodge had begun to show signs of its age. He stopped for a moment and thought, 'As long as there is a bed or couch in there to lay on, I'll be satisfied.' Chad looked off to the side of the lodge. There was the lake. It was massive in diameter, larger than any lake he'd seen back at home. The water was like a mirror, the same blue color seen in a cloudless sky.

    "Look at this Cyndaquil!" Chad exclaimed. Cyndaquil didn't seem so impressed. "Do you think you'd like to go swimming later on? Wait, can you go in water?" Although, Chad had Cyndaquil for months now, he realized he still had more to learn about his partner. He looked down to his little mouse, who looked back up. Cyndaquil tilted his head to the side. "The last thing I want to do is harm you. Maybe the Pokedex can give me some information. I'll be sure to look at your entry, perhaps under recreation, while we relax inside."

    Chad arrived at the lodge's main entrance now. "Hey, I bet Heracross will enjoy this. He's been working pretty hard at the Training Center to learn a new attack. Plus it will give you two a chance to become better acquainted," Chad looked down again to Cyndaquil. "He, only recently, has begun to start trusting me. We'll have to take our time with him, so he doesn't attack you or anyone else." Cyndaquil squeaked. "It'll be fine. You're awesome. Why wouldn't he like you?" Chad looked around once more. "Let's go in and sit down."

    Just as Chad reached for the door knocker, the door suddenly opened. In the doorway he could see a large light blue blob with legs and fins. "Oh. Hello there," Chad said to it. He reached into his pocket for his Pokedex and scanned the creature before him.

    Chad put his Pokedex back in his pocket. Clearly this Quagsire was much larger than normal. He and Cyndaquil looked up at the beast. "Well Quagsire, looks like someone had their vitamins," he said chuckling nervously. He looked at Quagsire, who was staring at Chad blankly. "You see, um, I just climbed to the top of this volcano because I wanted to see the lake. My parents had told me so much about it. May I come inside and rest up a bit?" Chad paused and added, "Please?"

    A tourist magnet, Whale Island is a large region of land that was formed from volcanic activity a millennia ago. There is a strange abundance of electrical energy present on this island which, rather than posing a problem, has complemented the island entirely. The entire area is a haven for water Pokémon with even the mountain craters filled to the brim, the abundance of water sports and holiday travel locations ensuring the time you spend here is never dull. Cities and townships are located all across the island, with resorts, inns, and travel lodges in ample supply. The Hydra River is the main waterway, starting up in the north-west area of the island and down through the Central Plains where the great Hydro-Electric Dam has been constructed, before leading down to the south-eastern corner of the island and back out to sea. Whether it's action water sports you're after, or just lazing on a nice stretch of beach somewhere, you'll definitely find the place you're looking for on the famous Whale Island.

    East Coast
    By far the most popular tourist destination spot, the East Coast of Whale Island seems to be constantly abuzz with activity both day and night. Unfortunately the downside to this is the crime rate has risen so be sure to keep an eye out for the con artists and thieves who are looking to swindle unsuspecting travellers out of their holiday spending money. Despite this downside the east coast is a great place to holiday, especially if you're looking to make the most of daytime and night time entertainment.

    Areas:
    Ampere Beach: The largest stretch of coastal sand in all of Fizzy Bubbles, Ampere Beach is famed for its sand which contains a mild electrical current that soothes the body. This charge is the result of the high salinity content, combined with the naturally high electricity from the central regions, providing an earthing ground for the static. As a result, the beach is often used in therapeutics, evident by the resort known as Pieli Harbour.
    Whale Island. Whether or not Hyrem was going to find any whales here... well, in reality that didn't concern him at all. He was more focused on his newest friend, Seedot. He wasn't sure what attracted him to the Acorn Pokemon, but something did. Enough so, that he adopted this one.

    Even now, Ralts was still unsure about Seedot, at least as far as he could tell. You see, Ralts had been trying to figure out Seedot's emotions ever since she was adopted. But so far, nothing... either Seedot was really good at hiding her feelings, or they just weren't there. Or it could be the faint electrical current Ampere Beach was giving off providing interference, there was just no way to know for sure. Ralts expressed her frustration to Hyrem by putting a deep, dark red color inside his mind. and saying "Ra ralts ralts!" while waving her little arms in the air.

    "Yeah, I hear ya," Hyrem said back. Hyrem could understand what Ralts was thinking; he had a tough time figuring out Seedot himself when all he had to work with was a blank stare. All of a sudden, Seedot started jumping up and down, alternating which foot it landed on, as if it were a dance of some sort. "Seed seed seedot! Seed seed seedot!"

    "Heh, so you like to dance, huh?" said Hyrem. He got his Pokedex out; maybe it would tell him something more about Seedot.

    Seedot, the Acorn Pokemon. They like to attach themselves to tree branches to absorb moisture and nutrients. While doing so, they look exactly like acorns if they remain still. When they move, they startle others close by, and it's a good form of entertainment to them.

    "So, you like trees, huh?" Hyrem looked around. Ampere Beach looked like nothing but sand and surf, from where they were right now. He figured, however, that there had to be a palm tree somewhere on this huge beach. "All right, I think we should find a tree for Seedot to attach to. It'll also give us a good place to relax. Until then, Seedot, you'll stay in your Pokeball so you'll be safe. Now return!"

    Seedot turned into a red light and disappeared inside its Pokeball. Once that was done, Hyrem took Ralts into his arms and walked along the beach, looking for the closest tree for Seedot to latch on.

    Flame Mistress: There are many reasons not to miss Whale Island's tourist hotspot, the East Coast, such as the therapeutical sands of Ampere Beach, the surreal beauty of the Rainbow Reefs, or the dazzling nightlife of the cosmopolitan Seaside City, to name a few. For some however, a taste of Pieli Harbour's scrumptious, world-class ice cream was reason enough, and you were one of such people. Having endured several eternal minutes of agony queueing in line for your turn, you finally get a piece of the heavenly treat, and oh was it good! The creamy goodness felt like fine silk rubbing against your skin as it melted on your mouth and softly made its way into your stomach. Nobody could tell exactly what the Pieli Classic was made of, but you could feel a plethora of everchanging notes resulting from a vast array of unknown fruits, herbs and spices. Whatever it was, it thoroughly tested your ability to avoid eating it too fast. You were happy your partner, Flare, wasn't a big fan of ice creams, though a part of you felt that this particular dessert could perhaps make the young Vulpix turn around its opinion entirely; a theory you were not yet ready to test now, if ever.

    Ice cream in hand, you wander around looking for what more Pieli had to offer. The area was lively and bursting with activity as both locals and tourists went on about their respective businesses. Many boats of varying shapes and sizes parked along the coast, some disembarking various goodies whereas others were just getting ready to set sail. The sight of a rather luxurious personal cruise catches your eye and you wonder just what lucky soul could afford such a ride. The various funfair rides tickle your curiosity even more however, and you turn your eyes to the massive rollercoaster as you hear the distant hysterical screams of its passengers; the Raikou and Suicune themed trains racing, circling and looping over one another at extreme speeds much like their legendary counterparts. It looked like the kind of fun that would twist and scramble your innards and yet leave you craving for more. In contrast, the huge ferris wheel provided a far less radical experience in exchange for a priceless view of the area; a tempting offer.

    Awestruck, you stop to settle down on a bench and rest. Flare hops on and lays atop your lap and even topaz comes out to better look at your surroundings as you lovingly hug the fluffy bird closer. Up until now, what you had seen of East Coast wasn't terribly impressive for you, but Pieli Harbor was beyond expectations and you thought it the best place on Whale Island by far; a thought which many would agree with.

    As you finally finish your bit of heaven in a cone, you find yourself wanting more, but the injustice of paying so much for another one makes you decide against it. You choose to sit back and relax along with your Pokémon, soothing yourself with the constant murmur of the cityfolk, the cries of the greedy Wingulls, and the sound and smell of the ocean. Your peace was short-lived however as you notice a young boy about your same age approach you. He had slightly tanned skin and short black hair, and wore a simple outfit consisting of a white shirt, cacky shorts and sandals.

    "Hi there," he said a bit on the shy side, "I'm sorry, I just felt like talking to you. You have a very beautiful Vulpix there; I don't see those very often. My name's Phillip. Is this your first time here?"

    Looks like someone's interested in making a new friend, and he sounded like he's really been around.

    What will you do?
    Charlotte was staring into the magnificent sky draped over the East Coast, bathing in the salty fragrance of the ocean and the cry of the Wingulls circling the area, when she noticed a boy about her age approaching her. He was fairly good-looking; he had slightly tanned skin and jet-black hair, and was wearing a simple white t-shirt, shorts and sandals. Charlotte broke out from her trance and looked up at him, while Topaz shyly withdrew back into her Poke Ball.

    "Hi there," he greeted her timidly, "I'm sorry, I just felt like talking to you. You have a very beautiful Vulpix there; I don't see those very often. My name's Phillip. Is this your first time here?"

    For a moment, Charlotte wondered if he was a Pokemon thief, eyeing her precious Vulpix, waiting for the right moment to snatch her from her hands and take her back to his hideout, where she would be examined and sold on the black market. She instinctively brought Flare closer to her side, but she then noticed the boy's eyes, and how genuine they looked. She decided that she was just being too paranoid, and relaxed, smiling at the boy. She didn't really like talking to strangers - she didn't really make friends with strangers easily, let alone engage in a conversation with them - but she decided to act friendly just this once.

    "Yeah, this is my first time here," Charlotte replied, looking up at the boy. "I'm just checking out the Pieli Harbour right now. To be honest, I only came here for an ice cream!" she added with a laugh. It was true though - the only reason she really came here was because she wanted to taste the legendary Classic Pieli, however jaw-droppingly expensive it was. The boy didn't seem suspicious at all now, and she decided to fully let her guard down and get herself acquainted with the boy. After all, he looked like a local, meaning that maybe he could help her with the sightseeing.

    "I'm Charlotte, by the way," she continued, "and my Vulpix over here is Flare. She's my Starter Pokemon, I've been with her since way back when she'd barely hatched from her Egg. Her mother was my mother's Ninetales, you see. So, are you a resident here? Or are you a tourist like me?"

    (OoC: Well this just got... awkward.)

The park offered many fun rides and games, all of which were sure to be good watery fun, as well as several other adrenaline pumping activities. Yet, you weren't quite ready to be carrying your heart on your throat, and instead take it easy as you dive straight into the park's swimming pool; comfortably floating on your back after you resurface. The water had the perfect level of coolness to provide absolute refreshment against the merciless heat of summer. You were definitely enjoying yourself and you share the feeling with your Munna who wasn't quite as interested in taking a bath but was very happy that you were at least having fun.

    You hear someone calling out to you, much to your surprise, and as you stand up, your eyes meet those of a cute brunette on a yellow bikini. It seems a game of pool volleyball was about to start, and they could use another person!

    What will you do?
    Scott floated around lazily in the pool, enjoying the relaxing atmosphere. Suddenly, mood was broken by some noise. He could've sworn he heard the sound of someone calling out to him. He stands up to get his ears out of the water, and see if what he thought he heard was true, or if he was just hearing things. Lo and behold, someone was calling him. His eyes met a brunette girl wearing a yellow bikini. Apparently, a game of pool volleyball was just about to start, and they could use another person.

    Scott had to think about this for a second. He wasn't very good at land volleyball (or sports in general for that matter,) and he wasn't sure how he'd fare in the water. He wasn't a fan of making a fool of himself in front of strangers. Still, he was on vacation. What did he have to lose? He shrugged his shoulders. "Eh, sure why not." He smiled politelty and introduced himself. "My name's Scott by the way. And this is my partner Shaana." He said, pointing to the Munna who was now sitting on his head. Unbeknownst to Scott, the Munna was giving the girl an angry look for some reason.

    Having read about this spot in the brochure on his journey over, Andy knew the first place he wanted to visit.
    Sure enough, as soon as the boat had arrived in Pieli Harbour he'd wasted no time in seeking out his destination. He remember staring in awe at the vast stretch of coast before him. He could feel the crackle of static electricity in the air, making his hairs stand on end, or perhaps that was his own sense of anticipation.
    Before you could say "public indecency" Andy had stripped down to a pair of shorts, and had thrown himself down onto the beach.

    "This... is the life"

    Andy lay spreadeagled on the beach, almost melting into the tingly, electrified sand. The collection of aches and pains he had amassed on his journey seemed to drain away from him, leaving him feeling relaxed and refreshed. At his side Sheldon also seemed to be experiencing the benefits of Ampere Beach.

    "Tuuuuuuur" it sighed, blissfully.

    "We've earned this," Said Andy to his trusty companion, "it feels like forever since we first set out together, and we've barely stopped since then. We should enjoy this whilst we can."

    The Turtwig let out another sound of contentment and attempted to roll onto his back to match his trainers position. After failing in his attempts, a mixture of his shell being in the way and just being too darn comfortable where he already was, Sheldon nestled himself into the sand and fell asleep.

    Andy smiled, looking at his Pokemon. He knew they hadn't really been together that long, practically only a few months compared to most Trainers who recieved their first Pokemon on their tenth birthday, but he couldn't help but feel as though they'd both grown since their jounrey began and now he found it hard to remember a time when they weren't together.
    It was during this though that Andy realised his own eyes were growing heavy. He let them close, basking in the feeling of the warm sun and the soothing sands.

    "A little nap should be fine. Just five minutes...."

    A tourist magnet, Whale Island is a large region of land that was formed from volcanic activity a millennia ago. There is a strange abundance of electrical energy present on this island which, rather than posing a problem, has complemented the island entirely. The entire area is a haven for water Pokémon with even the mountain craters filled to the brim, the abundance of water sports and holiday travel locations ensuring the time you spend here is never dull. Cities and townships are located all across the island, with resorts, inns, and travel lodges in ample supply. The Hydra River is the main waterway, starting up in the north-west area of the island and down through the Central Plains where the great Hydro-Electric Dam has been constructed, before leading down to the south-eastern corner of the island and back out to sea. Whether it's action water sports you're after, or just lazing on a nice stretch of beach somewhere, you'll definitely find the place you're looking for on the famous Whale Island.

    Central Plains
    Mostly fertile farmland there's not much here for your average tourist or trainer although a few areas of interest do attract the more adventurous trainers. Electric Pokémon thrive out here and are often found roaming the fields. Better beware though, they're not all that fond of trainers getting too close to their young so take a wrong step and you may find yourself on the wrong end of a lightning bolt that hasn't come from the sky.

    Areas:

    Crater Lake: Atop an extinct volcano, its crater is now a freshwater lake and home to many wild Pokémon. A travel lodge awaits weary visitors who have trekked up the mountainside, where they can rest their weary bones and have a bite to eat. Some say ancient Pokémon reside way down deep inside the throat of the volcano but nobody has been able to verify these stories.

    "Chim-Chimchar...", the fiery ape looked in awe at the fields, but mostly the volcano in front of him. "I know, feels just like home doesn't it?" Olli happily nodded still hypnotized by the warmth and aura of the volcano. Looking at the top volcano, Rob started to feel a little tired just thinking about climbing all the way up the volcano, but he knew that wasn't going to stop Olli from demanding him to reach the top as soon as possible, especially since he had been waiting to see the top of the volcano since they started planning their adventure back home. "We are close to getting to our first destination aren't we?" Olli nodded once again enthusiastically and jumping with joy.

    "I know buddy," Rob then knelt next to Olli and started to pet his companion, "But we are not in a rush to get there, we have to enjoy the view and all that as we go, wouldn't it be better to see everything and explore along the way?" Chimchar then gave somewhat of an annoyed yet understanding chirp. "Hey we aren't here just to train, we are here to explore and meet new friends as well, just remember that we can have just a little fun too," Rob said jokingly. The ape once again responded, "Chim..." getting a little impatient now. "Okay, okay, let's start climbing to the top." Before Rob could finish the sentence Chimchar started to run up the slope, with his trainer now running behind him towards the Crater Lake, "Wait up Olli!"

    Default Whale Island - o1

    So I’d like to welcome my group to Whale Island. If you’ve been skipped by this point I’m assuming Balmund wanted to update you. Anyway, I’d like to clear up I’m trying for a rapid-fire angle where updates are as short as they can be without impacting quality whilst being churned out on a daily or every other day basis. I decided to make the first set of updates a bit longer for storytelling purposes, try not to be disappointed if your next update is only 5 lines long :P Anyway, stick to the rules and have fun!


    Cascade Waterfall

    Stark: It had been years since your last adventure, and with some new recruits to break in you set your sights on Cascade Waterfall. Trekking through one of the remote forests of the Southern Gulf, you find yourself in awe of the tropical atmosphere. Passing the colonies of Shroomish you spot a small yellow arachnid spinning its web from one tree to another in hopes of catching a tasty Spearow. Circling in awe whilst nearing the tropical lagoon you stumble as you reach a break in the tall trees. You’d reached the foot of your destination! Just ahead stood a powerful waterfall cascading from the height of a full-grown Steelix - forming a rainbow against the diamond-dust spray. The plunge pool just a stretch away covered the entire forest opening, the noise of wild Pokemon strident as colonies of water Pokémon bathed on the few rocks that jutted above the lake, among them Poliwag and Corphish coupled with their respected families. A few Goldeen and Lumineon leap up from the water before splashing back in, with Clamperl and Cloyster nestled mysteriously at the depth of the lake. Outskirting the lake was a herd of Phanpy squirting jets of water playfully at one another as its mother observed protectively.

    It doesn’t take long for you to head toward the water bank in hopes of cooling off. However just as you reach the coast, a series of violent bubbling starts to appear in the deepest part of the pool. Before you can hesitate, a deafening screech splits through the air, a large slinky sea monster breaking through to the surface. Water drips down its slimy navy hide, its head reeling forward as the yellow spots up its fins and head light up. Opening its leechy mouth it emits another shriek, this time sending the local Pokémon fleeing for their lives. The fish dart into shallower waters, the molluscs latching their shells shut tight and the water drinking Pokémon make a break for it in the forests. However this Pokémon was as lightning fast as the sparks surging down its body, leaping underwater and latching onto a Cloyster with its powerful claws. In a quick show of strength the lamprey rips open the bivalve, glugging its gooey insides with its sucker mouth. The eel rebounds up to the surface, making quick work of a Poliwhirl perched on a rock and stunning a nearby Seaking with its Thunder Wave. Unless something is done fast, it won’t take long for the Eelektross to devastate the waterfall’s ecosystem...

    The Caverns

    Celebii: Fresh off the boat and raring for adventure, you find yourself in a dangerous neck of the woods known as Laguna Peninsula. Coveted for its nautical history, you hazardously scale the steep cliff edges carved to the bone by the crashing waves in hopes of finding a Pirate’s hideaway full of treasure. Your handy first mate clings to your pant leg, ready to tuck into his shell if you fall off the edge – though it’s likely it’d make no difference against the pointy rocks below. Larry on the other hand was scuttling ahead, in his element on the rocky terrain. A short while passes until you spot a fissure in the cliff face, dark and dingy with no telling of what lies ahead. With the salty-sea air sharpening your senses you run bravely ahead, Larry narrowly in tow with Neptune waiting to see what happens. Whilst Larry can see perfectly, a few feet into the cave and it becomes impossible for you to see much further ahead. Before you can come up with a plan to illuminate the dark tunnel a series of high-pitched screeches sends you scuttling back in pain. Suddenly a flock of bat Pokémon fly overhead, no doubt startled by your presence. A gutsy Golbat breaks free from the pack, letting off another Screech – this time aimed at Larry! What will you do?

    Raine’s Wildlife Park

    Son of Shadows: With Aegis by your side and a heightened sense for adventure, you decide a trip to Fizzy Bubble’s most popular Wildlife Park would be the perfect place to capture your first Pokémon. With a queue a mile long putting your excitement to a halt, you pocket one of the theme park’s brochures, illustrated with a photo of the famous adventurer Raine rising out of the water on the nose of Shamu the Wailord – the park’s star attraction. After a long wait you finally reach the front of the queue, buying tickets for yourself and the little snapping turtle that’s literally bursting with excitement. “If you’re looking for new Pokémon you’re best visiting one of our many wildlife exhib-!”

    FREE THE WAILORDS FROM SLAVERY! YOU THINK SHAMU ENJOYS DOING TRICKS ALL DAY? HE REALLY DOESN'T!

    A loud megaphone grabs your attention - just by the gates you spot a group of protesters, shaking their signs frantically. The posse were all sporting matching sailor attire finishing the look with blue bandanas. The ticket attendant rolls her eyes “Team Aqua don’t seem to understand, we’d never hurt a Pokémon. Raine has raised Shamu from a Wailmer… I almost forgot, here are your passes, have a wet 'n' wild day!” As quickly as the exchange was finished you’re shuffled through the turnstile by the crowd of eager tourists, somewhat alarmed by the group of shady environmentalists parked outside. Just ahead was a sign pole: Following the guide’s advice there was Raine’s Wet ’n’ Wild Sea Show which started in another hour. In the meantime the Manta pool - which offered swims with real-life Mantyke and Mantine - was to your left with the Sharpedo Tanks – an aquarium teaming with marine predators - to your right. Straight ahead there was the Kyogre-Koaster, the worlds fastest log flume with its tracks towering above the rest of the park. You had enough time to visit two attractions if you didn’t want to miss the big show, but where will you head first?

    The Ghostly Galleon

    Unowenisawesome: With Gene the Metang robustly hovering by your side you make your way toward the last known sighting place of the most fearsome pirate ship of the seven seas. Fuelled by the folk law surrounding this particular stretch of beach, you skim the dark horizon in hopes of spotting anything out of the ordinary. Minutes seem to fly by as you slump into the cool sand with a sense of boredom. Gene shuts his eyes as though powering down, anchoring close by. Just as you’re ready to make tracks back to mainland, you notice something glowing brightly far into the ocean. Your eyes squint as you focus on the bobbing light, its neon hue illuminating the surrounding water from navy to turquoise. You start to pick out its features as it bobs slightly closer to the shore: two club-like arms splashing either side of its podgy body, large antennae draping from its translucent head. More noticeable was the ruby gem flashing faintly on its chest, the yellow circles around its eyes matching the hypnotising glow. The sea angel waves its arms excitedly as it invites you to play in the ocean. Whilst investigating an old legend it looks like you found something more legendary than you bargained for. What will you do?

    Ampere Beach

    Dark Searchman: The sun is baking, the tide is low and the tourists are chilled. With Ralts by your side you make your way across the warm sandy beaches in hopes of finding a perfect sunbathing spot for your new friend Seedot. The occasional Krabby scuttles past your feet as you search for a tree, passing by groups of youngsters building sandcastles. You let your feet get wet as you continue down the beach, the shallow water gently pressing against the sand and beaching the odd Staryu. It really was the perfect day! It doesn’t take much longer before you spot a stubby-looking palm tree curiously positioned in the centre of the beach. You decide to take a closer look, but as soon as you touch the wide trunk the tree shudders to life! Two short legs suddenly hop up from beneath the sand, a trio of coconuts on its head spinning around to reveal the toothy scowl of an Exeggutor! Before you have time to react the Grass type fires out a Barrage of egg bombs pelting you and the little Ralts. Tumbling over you don’t feel too beat up after the attack, perhaps it’s at a low enough level for your squad to take?

    Trainer Andy: Looking to ease the stress that comes with being a Pokémon trainer you set course for Ampere Beach – and with temperatures reaching record highs you couldn’t have picked a better day to visit. Sheldon scuttles narrowly in tow, content in soaking up the suns nutrients with his twinleaves. Topless models litter the sunbeds whilst kids queue a mile long for a scoop of imported castellia ice cream. You sample the warm tide as you continue down the coast, the shallow water gently pressing against the sand and beaching the odd Staryu. You finally make camp at a flat stretch of sand in the centre of the beach. The static tingles up your body as you roll onto your back. Suddenly the aches and pains from your active lifestyle melt away, the blisters on your feet soothed by the soft sand between your toes. With Turtwig resting by your side you feel completely relaxed... YOW! You suddenly leap to your feet, a sharp pain striking your rear. As far as your neck allows you to bend you spot a small Corphish pinching your swim shorts in a Vice Grip and doesn’t want to let go! What will you do?

    Crater Lake

    Itzatrap: Taking your travels to the Central Plains of Whale Island, you find yourself at the foot of an extinct volcano with Olli eagerly by your side. Although the crater had been dormant for hundreds of years now, the nearby rocky hills were still plagued with volcanic ash amazing layers of formation. The fire monkey dances playfully ahead, the warm vista reminding him of home. Hiking up the mesa you watch ahead as Olli disappears from view, light-footedly scaling the steep with ease whilst you cautiously ambled in tow. Aside from the occasional Geodude barrelling past there’s not much to report, however this quickly changes as Olli comes leaping down the hill for your attention. You up your pace, making it to the top only to spot a slim redhead waving for help. The girl was wearing a black top that showed her midriff and a contrasting pair of baggy jeans, something about her was familiar... “Help! A Numel just fell to the bottom of the lake!” The girl cries, “Please do something! I don’t have any Water Pokémon!”

    Default Whale Island Adventures: Batch 2

    Alright, I'm on a roll! I'm gonna cap myself at 7, and I'm reserving the last spot to emp, so I guess this means I've reached my limit. At least for now, that is.

    ::Pieli Harbour::

    Flame Mistress: Your trip just had a turn for the awkward as a young boy, Phillip, approached you out of nowhere, Topaz hiding within her Pokéball at the prescence of the stranger. Not sure about his intentions, you start fearing the worst as you instinctively held Flare even closer to you on the off chance that he would dare attempt kidnapping your precious partner. Dealing with strangers was something you weren't used to, nor did you enjoy doing.

    He seems to pick up on this as his expression begins to change to one of shame for being so straightforward with someone he didn't even know. However, you notice the look on his eyes and, seeing how genuine they were, you decide that maybe you were just letting your fears get the better of you, relaxing and giving him the benefit of doubt with a smile.

    You admit this being your first time around and explain how you only really came here for delicious ice cream; Phillip smiling at how approachable you got.

    "Ya! They really are very good aren't they? It's unfair they're so expensive though," he laughed in agreement, all suspicion vanishing from you by now. Maybe this wasn't such a bad idea.

    You introduce both yourself and your partner, who's been with you ever since she was baby, and Phillip looked very interested to know how she was born from your mother's Ninetales. Keeping the flow of conversation, you ask whether he was a local or another tourist.

    "Me? Oh I've been here all my life in fact," Phillip replied with a smile. " A lot of foreigners do come over all the time though, and sometimes it's hard to distiguish who is and who isn't one anymore! Sometimes they bring some really exotic Pokémon, and I'm always amazed by them; some I've never even heard of before! Makes me jealous, you two look so close," he paused for a second. "I've always wanted a Pokémon of my own." You could feel a hint of sadness in that last sentece.

    "You know, you're a really nice person. At first I thought you would yell at me, or set me on fire or something, but I'm glad I came over to talk. Many people just brush me off as if I had some contagious disease. Are you going somewhere from here? I know some pretty good spots you'll never find on a tourist's guide. Wanna come over?

    Sounds like a harmless enough invitation, doesn't it? And he seems like a nice kid after all.

    What will you do?

    uhhhh: You found yourself stunned silly by the sudden approach of the two beautiful women who overwhelmed you with a barrage of questions and compliments in admiration of your Aipom; the monkey blushing from all the attention. Foster however was feeling bitter resentment at being ignored but you quickly take the initiative and warn him against doing anything to them to which he reluctantly obliged... at least until you stopped paying attention.

    Coming back to your senses you proceed to answer their questions, conditionally granting their requests as long as Gaspard was ok with them, who, much to their joy, actually was. You introduce yourself and ask for their names as you prepare yourself to add another shot to your collection.

    "I'm Angie!" said the first one, a long-haired blonde with captivating emerald eyes and a colorful beach outfit. "It's nice to meet you!" she smiled cutely as Gaspard hopped into her arms.

    "And my name's Kim!" smiled the other one, contrasting her partner with her short black hair, tanned skin and green outfit. "Aw, he's already comfortable with you, Angie!" she turned to her friend.

    "Ya, I know, right?" she giggled in response.

    They posed for the camera with brilliant smiles and it seemed to you that Gaspard's toothy smile was wider than what you had ever seen from him all day long. The picture came out just perfect; a sense of weight and balance seldomly achieved by rookie photographers. It was certainly one to be proud of, and Angie and Kim seemed very delighted by what you showed to them.

    "Wow, that's really good!" Angie exclaimed as she returned Gaspard to you, not before gently stroking the Aipom's head.

    "Ya, you really have some talent there!" Kim agreed. "You know, we're actually on our way to a very cool contest at the beach nearby, and they always have like these amazing prizes!"

    "We got to win last year actually, and now we get to be guest judges! Isn't that great?" Angie added. "Your Pokémon get to play dress up, and act, and dance, and there's even Pokémon battles involved! You probably could never have guessed it, but we really do rock at Pokémon battles, ha hah! I'd bet Gaspard would do great! He looks so confident."

    "And then there's this friend of mine, Luigi, who works as a pro photographer and always gets to shoot photos for the event. You could learn a lot from him!" Kim wrapped up. "Wouldn't you want to come with us? You totally have to go!"

    Well, what a surprise. It seems you've found a nice opportunity here. It's almost like fate had it that you would get lost on Pieli Harbour today.

    What will you do?

    ::Crater Lake::

    jolteonjak: You stood in front of what was probably the largest Quagsire you had ever seen; its inexpressive face only adding to the awkwardness of the whole situation. You trust your instincts and politely explain your intentions to the oversized salamander, hoping it to be of the gentle and friendly breed of giants. Your nervousness only increases even more however as it does absolutely nothing; taking its sweet time to digest each and every single one of your words.

    "Pedro? Who's there?" you hear the voice of an old man coming from within, the Quagsire slowly turning to face its source and moving aside as the elder, probably on his mid-80's, apprached at his own slow but steady pace.

    "My, my... aren't you a young one?" he said as he got a good look at you both. "Come on in, lad, you must be tired. You'll have to excuse this big, useless oaf here. I assure you he's mostly harmless, and dim-witted as a Slowpoke, he is. My wife says he only understands Spanish, so we started calling 'im Pedro. I say his problem is just that he's barely smarter than a rock," he chuckled.

    "Now please take a seat," he continued, "your room will be ready in a few minutes and dinner should be done in a couple of hours. I don't think you would have a problem introducing yourself? What brings you all the way over here, son?"

    It's about time you found a place to rest, isn't it? And now you find yourself in company of the lodge's owner, who probably knows a great deal of stories and lore that you may be interested in. If not over a nice dinner perhaps this is the best time to let loose any questions that you may have.

    What will you do?


    Your responses are fine jolteon. You can update both yourself and your Pokémon however much you like. It becomes self updating when you start playing around with objects, people, Pokémon or places not previously shown or suggested. How could you, say, grab a bottle of beer from a nearby desk if it wasn't inferred that there is, or could be, one to begin with? Most of the time, it's a matter of common sense. Though to be honest, I don't really mind it too much. I will be sure to point it out if you start to blatantly self-update. ^^

    ::Raikou's Effigy::

    Nightfall715: You smile at the sight of the cute Shinx that stood before you, looking at you with reserved curiosity. Black on the other hand teased and taunted the Electric-type, who, though frowning a little bit, remained generally unphazed by her insults; a thing which caused quite an impression on you while annoying the Purrloin greatly. Black was ready to tear a new hole across the Shinx's neck but when you show interest in catching it she looks back at you in shock, the mere suggestion nearly offending the mischieveous cat Pokémon. At least she would get a chance to beat it up as much as she could, and she got ready for action with that thought in mind.

    As you issue your orders Black lunges forward at an amazing speed, slashing across the Shinx's face with a fierce Scratch, the young cub wincing in pain from the attack. It wasn't going to just sit there and quietly take that punishment however, as it quickly retaliated with a determined Leer, the impression stunning Black in place and leaving her vulnerable as it rammed against her with a powerful Tackle, sending her flying a few feet back from the impact.

    Black angrily gets back to her feet, feeling all the more annoyed, but the Shinx didn't seem to hold such rancour, instead merely focusing in holding its ground. From what you can gather it seemed to be made of tougher wood than most, if at least only in attitude. One thing is for sure, it'll take more than just a scratch to tame this fellah!

    What will you do?


    Nightfall, I'm allowing up to three commands per Pokémon for each response. Good Luck!

    ::The Lighthouse::

    Marion Ette: Shrouded in the familiar darkness of the night you fly through the clear skies of Whale Island while you tightly hold on to your beloved Dragonite, August. For a great deal of your life the darkness had been your close friend and confidant, and you felt safe within its embrace. Where many would fear it, you instead delighted yourself within the coolness and peace that it provided. It held no secrets for you, but, like a good friend, it protected and treasured your own. Daylight on the other hand was blinding, disorienting and exposing.

    The night sky glittered with an infinite mantle of stars, big and small, shining white and all shades of blue above you. Underneath you had the ocean, an abyssmal body of water almost invisible to the naked eye if not for the reflection of the moonlight above; its faint smell filling the air and mixing with August's, concocting a relaxing perfume. You see a bright beacon of light in the horizon and, though you were still several miles away, it shone brighter than any of the stars around you. You knew you were close to your objective as you point out towards it, whispering excitedly to the mythical dragon who made haste and gracefully cut her way through the air like a flying arrow. The closer you got the better you could make out the lighthouse's silouette, standing high and tall atop of a rocky cliff.

    You carefully land at the foot of the lighthouse and safely dismount under the vigilant eye of your partner. As you dust yourself off she points to a map on your pocket and you wonder what was so special about it. Gently taking the map off your hands she looks over it for a while before pointing out to a note regarding the legend of the Ghostly Galleon. She could've sworn you would research this with utmost priority instead and she wasn't quite sure what you were both doing here. Though you admit the idea had crossed your mind already you explain your fascination towards the mystery of the lighthouse. It was said to have been long unmanned and yet it faithfully lit each and every single night for reasons unknown. Whether this was a lie or truly an act of supernatural intervention was something you just had to find out. August nods in understanding and gestures to the top of the lighthouse, suggesting a quicker way to find out as she flaps her wings. However, you decide for the more thorough and methodical approach and instead choose to go inside and inspect it from the bottom up.

    Hand in hand you both approach the tower's entrance, August making sure each of your steps were steady as to avoid you suddenly tripping over; a gesture which you greatly appreciated to which she smiled in return. Placing your hands against the cold, steel door you push against it and it initially seems hopelessly locked. Aided by August's strength however, it eventually cedes, whining and protesting loudly as it was pushed out of your way. It was dark inside and as you take your first step inside you immediately get a very familiar feeling. The temperature had suddenly dropped drastically and the pressure was intensifying more and more; you could tell the place was saturated with spiritual energy and that you both definitely weren't alone. You get the feeling that you're being watched, and you could feel a hint of aggresion behind the invisible glares. The message was all too clear: you're not welcome here.

    Certainly, you would find something of your interest here. The question now would be were to start? You could try going up the spiraling stairway all the way up the five-story building. Opposite to it was another door however, which seemed to lead towards a basement where presumably the electric engines that fueled the lighthouse would be running. Whatever path you choose it sure wouldn't take long before the hostile entities made themselves known a bit more in earnest.

    What will you do?

    ::Wet'n'Wild Recreation Park::

    Mon1010: A volleyball net was set up in place just above the level of the swimming pool, and people were already coming over to be part of a friendly game of which you were just now being invited to. Not being much of a sports person, an invitation for a game of volleyball was something you weren't sure you wanted to take part of. You were on vacation though, and, this not being the moment to be taking yourself too seriously, you decide to give it a shot instead. As long as the ball didn't come into your general direction you would be fine.

    You swim towards the friendly stranger and introduce both yourself and your partner, the Munna giving her an angry look, perhaps out of jealousy or another feeling that didn't feel quite right for the Psychic-type. The woman only seems to smile in response though.

    "Alice," she responded. "Your Munna's adorable! She's a bit grumpy though, isn't she? I swear she looks puffier than a Jigglypuff!" she said half laughing.

    "You came here by yourself, by the way? I'm here on a trip with some of my friends. We're all from Unova actually, and we're staying for a few weeks. Where are you from?"

    They say part of the beauty in traveling alone is meeting new people, isn't it? Though the game is about to start, there's time for a bit of friendly chit-chat... unless Shaana has something to say about that, that is.

    What will you do?

    OOC: Thanks for updating me, hopefully it won't be too horrible an experience for you. lol


    Rob looked at the rather uneventful yet still captivating surroundings. "Almost there..." he thought to himself until his companion came back to get his trainer's attention. "Char-Char!" The little chimp got his trainers attention, "What's wrong?" Olli ran ahead of his trainer and Rob quickly followed once again sensing the urgency in his Pokemon.

    Rob made it to the top, and found a red headed girl,“Help! A Numel just fell to the bottom of the lake!” she said,"Please do something! I don’t have any Water Pokémon!” Rob withdrew a Pokeball from his belt and threw it out in the air, "Shell, come on out!" he said, releasing a brilliant white light spectacle which took the form of a blueish turtle like creature.

    "Shell, I need you to help, a Numel fell in the lake and I need you to help bringing it back up!", the Squirtle nodded as the trainer took a rope out and tied it around Shell, ready to assist him if necessary. "Just hang on to the rope and I'll help you pull him back up once you find it." Shell nodded and started to go help the drowning Numel. Turning slightly towards the girl he then reassured her, "Don't worry, we'll get that Numel out of there in no time."

    Trainer Andy: Looking to ease the stress that comes with being a Pokémon trainer you set course for Ampere Beach – and with temperatures reaching record highs you couldn’t have picked a better day to visit. Sheldon scuttles narrowly in tow, content in soaking up the suns nutrients with his twinleaves. Topless models litter the sunbeds whilst kids queue a mile long for a scoop of imported castellia ice cream. You sample the warm tide as you continue down the coast, the shallow water gently pressing against the sand and beaching the odd Staryu. You finally make camp at a flat stretch of sand in the centre of the beach. The static tingles up your body as you roll onto your back. Suddenly the aches and pains from your active lifestyle melt away, the blisters on your feet soothed by the soft sand between your toes. With Turtwig resting by your side you feel completely relaxed... YOW! You suddenly leap to your feet, a sharp pain striking your rear. As far as your neck allows you to bend you spot a small Corphish pinching your swim shorts in a Vice Grip and doesn’t want to let go! What will you do?
    [I like the underlined portions in our updates... exactly the same! XD Anyway, thanks for this, and yay first updated adventure for me!]

    While searching for a nice tree for Seedot, Hyrem was able to take a nice walk along Ampere Beach and enjoy the scenery around him. He occasionally had to stop to let a Krabby walk in front of him, but neither he nor Ralts minded; this was more of a casual stroll, and the Krabby was just one of many attractions to the beach that allowed the two to unwind and enjoy their time on it. Other sights to see were groups of little kids building sandcastles that only reached about as high as they could fill their buckets with the trillions of grains around and the wondrous Staryu that found themselves washed up on shore by the gentle waves pressing the coastline every few seconds.

    "Wow, sure is a great day, isn't it, Ralts?" said Hyrem, relaxing with each step along the beach.
    "Ralts!" she exclaimed in agreement, relaying a sunny yellow to him.
    "I'm glad you think so too!" Hyrem chuckled.

    ...Ah, there it is! That's what they were looking for! "Found one!" Hyrem proclaimed as he rushed over to a stubby-looking palm tree, about six and a half feet in height, still holding Ralts in his arms. It didn't really occur to him that this, the very middle of the beach, was an odd place for a tree to be standing, neither did it cross his mind that it was weird that no other trees were around this area. Ralts did sense something off, however: brain waves, emanating from that tree.

    She tried to get Hyrem's attention... oh, but too little, too late as her trainer had touched the tree to inspect it. No sooner did he do so than the tree jump to life, and Hyrem's human instinct to respond in kind overtook him. The "tree" turned around to reveal three coconuts with various faces, all of them expressing anger. Then all of a sudden, the intruder and his partner found themselves pelted to the ground by a Barrage of egg bombs shot by what was now apparently a Pokemon.

    "Ow... That was embarrassing." Hyrem hoped nobody saw that as he sat up and dusted himself off a little. "You alright, Ralts?" She stood herself up and nodded. The Pokemon in front of them still looked really mad. "Great, what's this now?" said Hyrem as he consulted the Pokedex again.

    Exeggutor, the Coconut Pokemon. Nicknamed "The Walking Jungle", its three heads think individually, yet a telepathic link between the heads allow them to synchronize their thoughts in combat.

    "Synchronized thoughts, huh?" That power really would make three heads better than one, but at least there were two heads to face the Coconut Pokemon in this case. Also, that last attack didn't really hurt either of the two much... perhaps this was a lower-level Exeggutor that the pair could stand a chance of beating! There was no telling what else it could do, however, so Hyrem needed to make sure he battled cautiously.

    "All right, time to synch up and battle!" said Hyrem.
    "Ralts!" she responded, ready to start.
    "OK, we've gotta stop Exeggutor from doing too much damage, so start by using Growl. Then use Confusion; that should scramble those eggheads!"
