His last trip hadn't been particularly memorable, having ended up lost in a massive hailstorm while training in the Glaciers. Boy, was Minccino pissed. The only positive aspect that could be salvaged among the trainwreck of a first step that was his journey to the Arctic Zone was the Egg he had been given by a particularly generous merchant when Easter rolled around.
It had just hatched a few days ago, revealing a very playful male Gible, with a habit of nibbling anything it grew affectionate for. Good thing too, since Min was in need of another friend other than Levin himself - and since they were on non-speaking terms, she could use the distraction. Though, maybe the whole biting deal could be a problem, what with her lady-like manners and short fuse for anything less than polite.
And then there was Elekid - a notably brave hatchling, born on the same day as Gible, whose previous owner had left in a nearby Adoption Center. Feeling sorry for the poor thing, and realizing his party could use a more no-nonsense element, Levin decided to make the investment and take the Electric Pokemon with him. Neither Elekid nor Gible had been given an opportunity to fight yet, but Levin knew it'd be a matter of time, and he'd carve them into powerful allies soon. He did know everything there was to know about Pokemon, after all.
Smiling in self-satisfaction, he looked around the docks. The place was bustling with activity, and with the warmer weather, people had begun dressing accordingly. Yup, the sights were definitely enjoyable.
"Well, let's get some ice-cream. I can plan my next move after I enjoy myself a little."
