Melettin flits skyward, the white glow running off his transparent wings as he switches into a battle stance. While it looked like the odds were already stacked against the Poison Bee Pokémon, you had a trick up your sleeve, or rather in your hat. You tip the ten gallon, coaxing the mega stone on its crown to pulse with energy. Melettin’s Beedrillite flickers in tandem, triggering his mega evolution… Tendrils of energy engulf the bug as his horns become curved, his ruby eyes longer and sleeker. His upper wings split in two and his drills become longer and larger, resembling javelins. His main stinger grows a pale yellow, and black stripes appear on its abdomen, chest, and leg stingers as the transformation runs its course. Melettin throws a few jabs into the air at blinding speed – demonstrating his unlocked potential. This does little to phase the enemy however, who quickly lets loose an X-Scissor. The Mega Beedrill had Hardened its exoskeleton with a second to spare, cushioning the blow but still send him careering into a nearby office block. At least he came off better than the taxi cab… Shaking off the hit, Melettin vaults forward with his javelin flickering a Poisonous hue, Jabbing the foe in the thorax for a decent blow. With its prey in range, the prehistoric Pokémon hugs him close with his razor-sharp scythes and Butts him with a half-moon Head. Beedrill reels in pain but with nowhere to go, thrusts his stinger forward proceeding to Run it through the Kabutop’s abdomen. The enemy trills in pain as the Drill makes quick work of his marrow, channelling it to unlock his Hidden Power, Fiery hailstone exploding from his core and pelting the hornet for significant damage. What’s your next move?
    The battle had begun, possibly one for the ages- the unpredictable Kabutops Skeleton Missingno. against the fast and powerful Mega Beedrill, the latter starting things off with a Harden, one of the few good things (in his opinion) to come from the cumbersome Kakuna stage. The Harden was done in a very timely fashion, for Missingno. unleashed a powerful X-Scissor which sent Melittin flying. "Mel!" Keith exclaimed, though the Beedrill quickly proved himself to be alright. Indeed, he went straight into an Adaptability-boosted Poison Jab straight to the thorax. Such close proximity, however, came at a cost- namely, Missingno. was able to grab onto the Poison Bee Pokémon and deliver a devastating Headbutt. Keith winced- that looked like it hurt!

    Melittin felt the same way- that Headbutt was no picnic. However, despite that powerful blow, the Mega Evolved Bug/Poison-type saw his opportunity and seized it immediately- Missingno. had left its abdomen wide open, and it was to that abdomen Melittin delivered the piercing Drill Run attack. The beast trilled in pain in response to the attack, but almost immediately struck back, pelting Melittin with a particularly fiery Hidden Power- a super effective blow!

    "Mel, hang in there, you're doing great!" Keith called encouragingly. "Use Focus Energy, then give it a taste of your Twineedle attack! Then follow up with another Drill Run- that seemed to work best!"

    "Wat type is it anyways?" Meowth asked Keith.

    Keith shrugged. "At the moment?" he replied. "Who knows? From what I've read, Missingno. in Kabutops Skeleton Forme change their type randomly. Based on how effective that Drill Run was, it could be a Rock-type or a Poison-type at the moment. Like I said, completely unpredictable." These words did little to comfort Meowth, but considering how strong Melittin was, especially when Mega Evolved, he couldn't help but feel at least a little optimistic here.

    Missingno. Master: Sorry, I must have gotten carried away with that Drill Run description. Missingno isn’t currently weak to ground. I’ve been using this as a reference for wild Missingno types/abilities.

    The two Pokémon break apart in fiery cinders, Melittin flitting to a safer altitude as you mull over your next orders. The reanimated shellfish follows the bug’s flight path, letting loose a Leer which sends a chill coursing through your body, even with its dark, hollow sockets giving away no sign of emotion. The Beedrill disguises any signs of fear as he zooms overhead, Focusing his Energy. The pumped Melittin quickly switches to offense, swooping down with his Twin Needles a-glowing. Before he can close the distance however, the enemy’s scythes flicker white as he blocks with a Cut. The two Pokémon hold their footing, trading feints, thrusts and parries with lightning speed, almost impossible to follow. The mysterious foe has no trouble matching Melittin, and quickly gains the upper hand with a jab to the abdomen. The hornet crashes into an abandoned newsstand, wincing as he shakes off the debris skewered to his stingers. Dashing any cause for concern, Melittin beats his wings back into flight, honing in on the skeleton Drill-first. The fossil clocks on this time – crossing his Scissor-like appendages in an X-Motion and catching the bug by his stinger. The sudden grip sends Melittin rotating in the reverse direction, buzzing furiously as he helplessly struggles to break free.

    (Ohhh, OK)

    The fight went on, Keith still trying to wrap his head around the sudden appearance of a Missingno. out of nowhere. The strange creature cast a Leer that made Keith, Meowth, and Lenny shudder simultaneously, despite Melittin being the attack's target, so menacing was this scary skeleton. But if Melittin was afraid, he hid it well as he executed Focus Energy, then following up with Twineedle. Or at least tried to, anyway- Missingno. blocked with Cut, and turned it into an admittedly impressive swordfight. Alas, Missingno. gained the upper hand with a jab to the Mega Beedrill's abdomen, causing him to crash into a newsstand. Keith looked worried, but sighed in relief as Mel got right back up. "Now, Mel! Drill Run attack!" Keith ordered.

    However, the Kabutops Skeleton Missingno. was ready for this, as well, its X-Scissor catching Mel by the drill-like stinger. Keith winced as this happened, almost as though he himself had felt it. Indeed, the suddenness of this counterattack actually got Mel spinning in the opposite direction of his stinger, struggling to break free from those scythes. "Gah! Dat ain't good!" Meowth exclaimed, his voice unnaturally high as he saw the sight of the very tough Beedrill being stopped so easily by this skeletal enemy.

    Keith was worried, and not without reason, but he also had a plan. A plan that sprung to his mind as soon as he saw Melittin start to spin. "Mel, calm down and focus!" he called out. "Use the spinning to go straight into a Swords Dance, then use Fury Attack to force its scythes open! Once you're free, attack it from a distance with Hidden Power!" He made a mental note to teach Mel some more long-range attacks in the future- just going in to attack at close range wasn't working especially well for him at the moment. Indeed, had Keith not decided to teach all of his Pokémon Hidden Power at one point, he wasn't sure what he'd have done here!

    Missingno. Master: The Kabutops fossil was tightening its X-Scissor while Melittin was spiralling out of control. You were trapped in a corner but not ready to bow out just yet, yelling another round of orders above the noise of whirring car alarms. The Poison Bee Pokémon registers your command, turning his momentum into a Swords Dance and skyrocketing his attacking power. In a show of Fury, Melittin turns his free stingers on the foe – letting off a salvo of strikes. With each stab, the wasp is able to bury his javelins deeper between the skeleton’s scythes and his stinger, quickly wedging himself free. The Pokémon grunts as his blades cut into thin air, attempting to stop Melittin’s escape with a bolt-Beam of Icy energy. The blast follows the hornet skyward, creating frozen stalagmites up the side of the tall office block. Narrowly avoiding the attack, the Beedrill returns fire by tapping into his Hidden Power – a draconic maelstrom raining down on the enemy for a decent hit. Well out of range, the fossil reveals an Ace up his sleeve, scaling the pillar of ice at breakneck speed and corkscrewing into an Aerial assault. The two hurtle into an abandoned car – shattering the windscreen on impact and setting off another car alarm. Melittin wings twitch as he struggles to take flight, determination fuelling him to continue as the battle reaches its climax…

    Melittin heard Keith's orders loud and clear, even above the cacophony of car alarms. True to what Keith was thinking, Melittin was able to turn the uncontrollable spinning to his advantage, turn it into a Swords Dance which would serve to not only get him back in control but also give him the strength he needed to get out of there! And sure enough, the Fury Attack did the trick- Mel was free within seconds. "Yes!" Keith exclaimed, grinning proudly. Meowth looked impressed, but nowhere near as impressed as Lenny- the Sneasel was in awe at Melittin's fighting skills.

    However, this was no time to celebrate, not just yet- Missingno. was still after Melittin, and to that end, it unleashed a powerful Ice Beam. Thankfully, Mel saw the attack coming, and was able to evade the frosty assault, whereupon he fought back with Hidden Power, unleashing the proud and powerful dragon he had the soul of in the form of a Dragon-type move. The orbs of energy rained down on the Kabutops Skeleton Missingno., dealing decent damage, but things were far from over- the skeletal enemy, with deftness and speed that was nothing short of astonishing when one considers its sheer size, climbed the pillar of ice created by his previous move, and went into an admittedly impressive Aerial Ace attack, sending both Beedrill and Missingno. crashing into an abandoned car.

    Keith gritted his teeth. Melittin was being worn down, and fast, but the way his wings twitched said it all for Keith- the battle was far from over, and the Mega Beedrill had no intention of giving up now. And with that in mind, Keith knew that he too couldn't concede defeat just yet. No, he had to hang in there. Melittin could do this, he knew it. "Let's finish this, Mel!" he called encouragingly. "Hit it with a Poison Jab, and follow up with Giga Impact!"

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.

    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.

    After having many adventures recently involving the supernatural and ghosts and the like, Bill decided he just wanted to through with a good old fashioned treasure hunt through treacherous waters. He had heard the many rumors about this treasure where many have tried to obtain it, but none were successful. That appealed to Bill a lot so he traveled to the Whale Island to see if there were any truth to these rumors. It also helped that there were a lot of Water-tyepd Pokemon nearby, and since he himself trained mostly Water-types, if he ran into a Pokemon that he liked, then that would be a really good bonus.

    Accompanying him was his Lumineon, Swift and his Carvanha, Savage and while they were far from the only Pokemon Bill had on him, they were the most accustomed to water, Swift having been caught in the Ocean of Mystery in particular since well that place was also filled with all sorts of adventure. Savage was, as usual, eager to go with Bill on an adventure, and even though Swift was more hesistent, he had a brief look of intrigue and excitement, though he quickly masked it as worry.

    Bill wore his usual scuba gear that he took with him normally for deep sea adventures and while this place wasn't exactly deep sea diving, he had a feeling he might need the oxygen tank and the suit's protection against debris. He held on to both of his fish Pokemon saying "Okay, so our objective now is to find the treasure of Pirate's Cove. If things get too dangerous for both of you, we'll pull out, but let's at least go as far as we can. Ready?"

    Both of his fish Pokemon nodded, understanding what Bill was saying. Both of them eyed the cove in front of them. Hopefully treasure and excitement awaits, as well as a new friend or two.

    Missingno. Master: The passing minutes roll by like hours as the two superpowered Pokémon slug it out. Signs that the battle is approaching its closing stages are all around. Both parties were worse for wear, but you couldn’t help feeling the odds were stacked against the brave little bee. Melittin was swaying waywardly above the car bonnet he’d been pressed against seconds ago – not daring to break contact with the prehistoric monster in fear another blow would push him over the edge. It was all or nothing… Clenching your fists you fire off a final volley of orders, the Beedrill’s antennae twitching with acknowledgement while the enemy fast approached. The Kabutops lunges in at breakneck speed with a X-Scissor, which is parried by a Poison Jab – the blades and stingers ringing together as the two struggle for the upper hand. Melittin reverses, picking up altitude as the skeleton’s Cuts slice through thin air. Climbing as high as the tallest skyscrapers, the hornet aims his stinger at the foe and breaks into a free-fall. Your heart sinks into your stomach as the foe lets loose its Hidden Power – the flurry of Fireballs hurtling into the Poison Bee Pokémon’s flight path. Milliseconds away from being shot down – Melittin is engulfed by a cocoon of purple energy, eating up the embers with ease as it builds momentum. You brace for Impact as the hornet’s stinger makes its mark, the Gigantic collision shattering shop windows down the entire boulevard with a cloud of dust engulfing your vision. The smoke starts to settle and you strain ahead desperately; the highway strewn with splintered bone and marrow and Melittin nowhere in sight. Bones crunch under your feet as you make your way through the warzone, Lenny scurrying in tow until a broken tip of prehistoric claw steals away his attention. Your ears pique to a faint buzzing, following it to your Beedrill – too exhausted to maintain his mega form – struggling to dislodge a fractured Kabutops skull from his stinger. Level Up for Mellitin!

    Feeling like the day was won; you dismay to find the old man more unstable than ever before. His wide pupils were fixed on empty space, a wobbly finger pointing at thin air. Before you can speak you start to see what he sees… Blocks of data were slowly compiling like a loading bar, a monochrome pixel array the width of a doorframe. “It’s regenerating…” The oldtimer stammers, “It’ll be back in a matter of hours, stronger than ever…” You search the elder’s eyes with intrigue, wondering just how much he knew about the mysterious enemy. He pulls on your arm, pointing you to a fissure at a junction in the boulevard – the very same manhole your prehistoric foe had emerged from. You edge closer to the abyss for a closer look; the walls and ceiling were circular, and old pipes draped with cobwebs ran along the sides. Sewage water was slow running, thick and dirty and the only source of light was the opening you were stood above...

    "What are you waiting for?! This is our only chance of escaping!"

    Pirate's Cove

    Cyber Blastoise: Lured in by the legends of long lost pirate’s booty, you teeter on the edge of the churning dark waters with a mixed sense of excitement and trepidation. Ribbons of moonlight move against the turbulent surf, doing nothing to shed light onto the mysteries below. Swift and Savage swim against the high tide, raring to go as you wrestle into your scuba gear. You heave on the oxygen tank which tugs at your back like a rucksack full of bricks – the strap of your mask snapping against your crown as the starry night’s sky suddenly goes a whole lot blurrier. A small air gauge dangles from the tank fastening to your waist, signalling you have 200 bars of oxygen and ample time for marine exploration. With a final breath of salty sea air, you bite onto your mouthpiece and slump into the black sea. Bubbles rush off the rubber wetsuits as water quickly fills your ears, muffling the sound of wave crashing against cliff. Your goggles provide a dim view of the reef below, Lumineon’s bioluminescence only managing to improve visibility by a few meters. You follow Swift like a homing beacon, straining to see anything ahead to no avail. Your hopes of finding any hidden troves in this light were zero... What will you do?

    "What are you waiting for?! This is our only chance of escaping!"
    The battle raged on, both sides starting to look worn out- a clear indicator that the fight was nearing its conclusion. Things were looking somewhat grim for Melittin, but Keith had faith. Mel had grown into one of his most reliable partners, his current Mega Evolved state serving as irrefutable proof of the strong bond they shared. It wasn't over until it was over, and both Keith and his Beedrill knew it. "Poison Jab!" Keith exclaimed.

    Melittin acted fast, parrying the oncoming X-Scissor with the potent Poison move, further powered up via Adaptability. Mel and the Missingno. fought for control, for the upper hand, when the Bug/Poison-type backed up quickly, gaining altitude and flying away from the vicious Cut attacks Missingno. was now unleashing. He gained more and more altitude, his height beginning to rival that of the surrounding skyscrapers.

    "All right!" Keith called up to the Mega Beedrill. "Use the Giga Impact, Mel!" he commanded. "Finish it!"

    The next few seconds of the battle were some of the most tense seconds of the entire fight. Melittin began his descent. Gravity was his friend at this point, aiding in the speed of the fall. Missingno. saw the Mega Beedrill coming, and fired off another barrage of fiery Hidden Power orbs, but at the last second, the swirling purple and yellow energy indicative of Giga Impact usage formed around Melittin, managing to dispel each and every one of the orbs upon contact. And the collision was colossal. The resultant shock wave shattered windows and threw up more dust than a Hippopotas with the stomach flu. At long last, the smoke started to settle, and Keith looked on. Skeletal remains littered the streets, but where was that Beedrill? And then, as soon as that thought crossed his mind, Keith began walking, almost automatically. How he knew this was the direction in which Melittin was, he couldn't say, but he seemed certain about it. He could feel it, in his head... the part of his head closes to the Key Stone on his hat, more specifically. Maybe the Key Stone and Beedrillite were resonating with each other, allowing Keith to hone in on the Beedrill? We may never know. Certainly the idea never crossed Keith's mind. What did, however, was a faint buzzing he started to hear. Very faint, but it was familiar to him nevertheless. Now following the sound, he made it to his exhausted, no longer Mega Evolved, yet still conscious, Beedrill, who was currently trying to extricate his stinger from the Kabutops Skeleton Missingno.'s skull. Meanwhile, Lenny was wandering behind Keith, looking on in awe at the skeletal destruction wrought by a single Giga Impact. And then, something caught his eye. Something Claw shaped and Razor-sharp. Lenny's eyes sparkled as he wandered over and scooped up the Razor Claw. He couldn't explain it, but he felt that this claw was meant to be found by him, meant to be kept by him.

    "Mel, you were awesome," Keith smiled. "Take a good rest, buddy, you've earned it," he added, holding out the Ultra Ball and withdrawing his Beedrill. "OK, Meowth, Len- eh, Lenny?" he said, realizing he couldn't see his Sneasel anymore.

    "Snee!" Lenny exclaimed, finally catching up to Keith. Keith chuckled as he saw Lenny making excited slashing motions with the Razor Claw he'd found.

    "There you are," Keith smiled. "Alright, let's see how that old man's holding up."

    Which turned out to be, worse than ever. The old man was even more freaked out than before, pointing at seemingly nothing... until Keith also saw what he saw. He could only describe it as a loading bar, but this was no computer screen, this was in real life. The man murmured something about it regenerating, and that it'd be back in a matter of hours, and even stronger. This intrigued Keith- the old man here seemed to know an awful lot about Missingno.! He found it more fascinating than weird, having had no small amount of personal experience with that particular species of Pokémon himself. But before he could ask the old man anything, he grabbed Keith's arm and led him to the very same manhole from which the Missingno. had emerged in the first place. He looked in as the old man exclaimed that it was their only chance of escaping, in response to which, Keith nodded and started to climb in. Meowth clung to his shoulder for dear life, and Lenny, who wasn't fond of ladders (his claws always got tangled in the rope ladder leading to Keith's Secret Base), clung to Keith's other shoulder, in addition to the Razor Claw he'd found and quickly grown so fond of. With both shoulders now occupied, Keith began to climb down. "Meowth, we may need some light down there," he said as he did this. "Be ready to use Flash."

    Meowth nodded. "Got it," he agreed.

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.


    "After much walking, the trainer finally gets a day out just for himself. It is not every day he gets to dock at such a relaxed area. With plenty to see, and so many people to interact with, Aposteriori starts to take a stroll down the Harbour for some famous ice cream. Their custard is the talk of the town, and everyone must have one apparently. But there is plenty to do, and it is just the beginning of the day.
    Aposteriori is not the best at handling choices, the bright funfair lights drawing him in. At this rate, wherever he goes, he will be unable to focus at the sheer amount of amusement and stimulation he is receiving. The last time the researcher was at a fair, he was nine years old. His father was very fond of taking the trainer during his earlier years before life became hectic for his working parents. He remembers the ferris wheel being is favorite ride, climbing all the way to the top and being able to see the full sight of the city was always something to look forward to.

    *Releases out of Pokeball*

    “Flynn, where are you going?!”

    Flynn Rider, Aposteriori’s Tangela seamlessly escapes the trainer’s pokeball to start an adventure of his own. The pokemon quickly fades between the crowd and the amusing scenery. At first, Aposteriori was apprehensive at the idea of pokemon leashes, leashes that are very popular at amusement parks, but then he started to realize why some trainers opted for such a precaution. It is no fun traveling with a runner, especially when you have to worry about possible pokenappings that could happen from time to time.

    “There he goes, making another one of his hasty decisions. I hope he does not get into any trouble”

    Aposteriori thinks to himself that Flynn couldn’t have run that far. He was right all along, and it seems that Flynn reached a halt somewhere in distance. The researcher wonders what could have made my friend stop.

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.
    Gale Windsor, aspiring birdkeeper from Violet City, toyed around with Levin's PokeDex, unable to grow used to the idea that the expensive device was now his. But it was indeed; and while Levin never used it, owing to the vast knowledge of Pokemon he had in advance, Gale was much less educated in the matters of the Pokemon world. He was very knowledgeable when it came to birds, literature, mythology and astronomy, but was just starting to learn the ropes when it came to catching, training and battling on his own - that wasn't what Falkner's teachings focused on.

    I can tell everything about any bird Pokemon I run into, but there are many other Flying-Types I know nothing about, not to mention all the terrestrial and marine Pokemon I've never even heard of...

    He stopped by the entrance of Raine's Wildlife Park, his destination from the start since he'd embarked on the ship that connected Cascadia's Salin City to the Whale Islands. He'd heard of this place before, a safe haven for families wishing to know more about the local fauna without running into too much danger. Much as he preferred to meet Pokemon in their original habitats, this felt like a good place to start for a beginner such as him.

    I wonder what kind of creatures roam the skies of Whale Island... This place seems much more in tune with sea Pokemon though. I wonder if I'll have any luck.

    It wasn't that he didn't care for other types of Pokemon, but Falkner had raised him - per his request, as well as his father's - to be the best birdkeeper he could be, even if so far, he only had a single bird to his name. If that was to be his life's trade, that's what he had to look for. After all, Falkner too had started out with nothing but a lone Pidgey...

    - Let's see what surprised Whale Island's got for me. Hopefully it'll be something I can handle!

    Areas:
    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.
    Dan let out a long whistle of admiration as he looked over the spectacular sight of Whale Island's famous Hydro-Electric dam from a nearby hill. The closest thing he'd seen in Unova to such a clean power generation system were some of the (volunteer) Pokemon-powered systems that diligently helped keep Nimbasa Gym and the surrounding theme park powered. But this was clean energy on a far larger scale - something like the solar roads he'd heard of in Sinnoh, or the power plant that harnessed energy from space in Kalos. This was right up there among such things, a positively marvelous thing to see - and what's more, he'd heard the place's massive power generation made the place naturally very attractive to electric-typed pokemon.

    As the partner pokemon - a Joltik called Nick who was altogether rather enthused by the location - upon his head showed, Dan was something of an enthusiast for the electric type; growing up in Nimbasa did the same for many trainers-to-be. However, since coming to Fizzytopia, he'd... not had fantastic fortune in meeting many - hence why he chose to travel to Whale Island. He'd heard tales of a healthy population of electric pokemon, which is half of what caught his interest - the other being a rumor of an abandoned quarry potentially full of riches. He absentmindedly thumbed his pendant; he'd found the chunk of cobalt in Chargestone Cave shortly after starting his travels, sparking a secondary interest; hunting and selling valuable gemstones. All in all, the Plains he'd heard about made this place very, very interesting to him.

    Treasure hunting can wait for later, though, Dan thought; I don't know much about that place yet, and after all, this dam is impressive enough of it's own merits. Not to mention how nice it would be to maybe find a new team-mate... Plucking Nick off the Joltik's usual position atop his head, the rather tiny attaching pokemon scuttled around and then atop the left hand that had grabbed him, bouncing softly in place as his trainer addressed him. "Alright buddy, what say we head on over there and check this place out? I know I want to get a look at everything inside - though you better not try leeching from them. Don't think I don't see that look in your eye - they're bigger than your stomach!"

    Nick made a point of cheekily rolling all four of his beady blue eyes at once at his trainer's warning, and gave a nod of agreement before promptly scurrying up his trainer's arm and onto his right shoulder. With a grin and a brief chuckle, Dan set off towards what he presumed to be the dam's main entrance, eager to get in and get looking around the facility.

    Yawning, the morning sun clearly making him drowsy, Ricardo finally steps out of the small log cabin he had decided to spend the night in, taking a moment to look around the surrounding scenery. His somewhat sleepy grin soon morphs into something more vibrant, and much more energetic, as he pulls his customary mask down over his face. Inhaling sharply, he appreciates the morning air, turning towards Ali ... who as always, was glaring at his trainer. The Breloom was recently traded to Ricardo by someone who was years his elder, the man having traveled far and wide with the Ali, when his name was Melo.

    Ricardo was lost in thought as the unsavoury glance of Ali bears into his soul, and he finally sighs heavily. Was he really suited to owning such a battle hardened companion? The way Ali saw it, there was no question in the matter - he flatly wasn't. The Breloom had no qualms about making his dislike for this new trainer well known, even from the moment they had just met. The distance set between the two seemed insurmountable to the fledgling trainer, and part of him was beginning to bend under the weight of expectation. Despite that though, his sunny disposition continued to shine through. Walking over to Ali, Ricardo places a hand on the head of the Breloom, who immediately recoils away, a hiss rising into the air in response. Frowning, Ricardo stretches again, before slowly approaching the edge of the Crater Lake. Looking down over the waters, he ponders where to set off, turning towards Ali and hoping for something of an input. When the Breloom simply turns away from him once again, Ricardo this time chuckles.

    "Aw, come on Ali. I'm sure it won't be that bad. Stop being so frosty and let's hit the road."

    And with that, the young man thrusts his arm into the air in his customary fashion, giving a loud cry of his name followed by 'onward', before doing exactly that and stomping forwards towards the main body of the lake.

    Default Whale Island - 37

    Seaside City

    Missingno. Master: Sorry for the fairly anti-climatic update. I swear there’ll be more high-stakes action soon ;)

    You’d managed to keep the rouge Missingno. at bay for now – but with the blocks of data recoupling it was only a matter of time before you had an even tougher fight at your hands. You reluctantly lower yourself into the sewer, taking care not to cut your hands on the rusty ladder. Your boots find a ledge, and you transfer the weight of the ladder to your feet – the two feline Pokémon clinging to your shirt as you scope out the dingy passage ahead. The first thing that hits you is the smell – your nose wrinkling even with your own party harbouring a deadlier range of stenches. The oldtimer retches, shying away from the slurry of waste coursing down the passageway as you both take one last fleeting glance at the manhole above. The sunlight raining from the fissure is quickly displaced by darkness as you make your escape – Meowth’s koban switching on like a Flashlight, improving visibility some. Moss crawled up the curved walls resembling spattered paint, a Spinarak dangling overhead quickly recoiling into a ceiling crevice. A pack of Rattatta raise themselves up on their haunches, noses and paws twitching as you bathe them in torchlight. Before Lenny can make for a pounce, you quickly press on down the walkway. Beneath the mayhem of the metropolis, there’s little sound to fill your ears sans for the dripping of leaky pipes and the echo of your own footsteps. The old man’s occasional sobs were only intermitted by his babbling… “This is going to be like Cinnabar all over again… So many dead… I just wanted to show people how to catch a Pokémon…” With time to kill, perhaps now was a good chance to get to know this foreign stranger. What will you say?

    Peili Harbour

    Aposteriori: Welcome to Whale Island! Not a bad intro post, just a few points from me:

    - Please describe any of your character’s actions instead of using asterisk, so instead of *Releases out of Pokeball*, something like “Aposteriori lobbed a Pokéball skyward, Tangela bursting free in a shimmer of light”
    - Stick to third or first person, depending on your preference. You jump between the two at some points in your post.
    - I’m also happy for you to write in past tense rather than present tense, just be sure to be consistent.


    With your Tangela in tow you set your sights on Peili Harbour, a pretty sight beneath the moonlight. There were galleys of all sizes dotted up and down the pier, moored in the still of night with the moon dancing like diamond glints on the dark and tranquil sea. You stare in awe at the constellations, following their starry trail down to the fluorescent lights of amusement park which seemed just as pretty in their own way. A stark contrast to the calm surf – your ears are met with a cacophony of sounds as you make a beeline to the fair. The briny air carries the smell of fresh popcorn and sickly-sweet candyfloss, your mouth watering as you forgo the nearby food vendors. Twisting rollercoasters snake overhead and a crowd was growing as you gravitated toward the pier’s ferris wheel. With the growing congestion, Flynn had become impossible to keep tabs on. You press on his general direction, passing by various carnival attractions such as “Hook the Psyduck” and “The Tunnel of Luvdisc”, catching up to the Tangela just a moment too late… A crowd had gathered around Flynn, who had a Helioptile Constricted by a pair of vines. The frilled lizard retaliates with a Thunder Shock – frying Flynn and escaping his grip. You can’t imagine why your companion would pick a fight unprovoked, but between the Helioptile’s flared frills and the crowd of cheering spectators, it didn’t look like you were making it out of this one easily… What will you do?

    (Don't sweat it, I know they can't all be action-packed. Looking forward to where this whole thing is going. )

    Lowering oneself into a sewer. By no means an activity one would do voluntarily except under extreme circumstances. And these, Keith could not deny, were extreme circumstances. He was still trying to wrap his mind around the fact that he'd just battled and defeated a Kabutops Skeleton Missingno. that appeared basically out of nowhere in the middle of the city. It was big, it was powerful, and it knew a buttload of good moves. In fact, as Keith thought back on the battle, he came to a realization- every single move Missingno. had used in their battle, was also a move Lenny knew how to use. Like, right down to the Hidden Power type. Coincidence? No, surely not. Keith was rather well-learned on the Missingno. species. He knew of its multiple possible forms. Myrtle, when she was alive, had been what is known as the "Normal Form"- a vaguely L-shaped creature most closely associated with the Missingno. species. But the Kabutops Skeleton Form, it was one of three Missingno. forms that had no set type or learnable moves. Rather, they took on the characteristics of the Pokémon species that were nearby- sort of the Pokémon equivalent of rice, one might say, considering rice in and of itself is flavorless, instead taking on the flavors of what one cooks it with.

    As such thoughts ran through Keith's mind, he lowered himself into the sewer. The ladder was rusty, he had to be careful not to cut himself on it... oddly for him, the smell was the first thing he noticed. It reeked, even by Keith's standards- you know a sewer really smells when the stench bothers somebody who willingly hugs his Muk and Trubbish on a regular basis! But that poor old man seemed to take the stench even worse. For Keith, it was mildly unpleasant, and Keith was very much used to horrible smells, to the point where he rarely, if ever, noticed them. He doubted the same applied to the old man.

    They made their way through the rancid sewers, Meowth's Flash enabling him to emit a beam of light from his charm to light the way, illuminating the mossy walls, the Spinarak, the pack of Rattata... Lenny seemed eager to go for the Rattata, but Keith held him back. "Lenny, now's not the time, OK?" he said patiently to the oddly-colored Sneasel.

    "Snee, Sneasel," Lenny nodded in response.

    As they walked, Keith listened to the old man. He was mostly sobbing, but between the sobs, the occasional words could be heard. Apparently, the old man believed this would end up like Cinnabar Island all over again, and how all he wanted was to show people how to catch a Pokémon. Keith was very much intrigued now- he'd read all about Missingno., knew the species to be somewhat common in the sea near Cinnabar Island... what had happened?

    "Excuse me, sir," Keith said to the old man. "What exactly happened at Cinnabar Island? How do you know of Missingno.? And why was that Kabutops Skeleton Missingno. attacking the city?"

    Default Whale Island - 38

    Seaside City

    Missingno. Master: The rumble of cars overhead echoed through the tunnel in a low, buzzing hum that travelled through the steel infrastructure all the way down to your boots. Determined to keep incognito, you journey deeper into the intricate sewer network – taking all kinds of twists and turns as you follow the stream of sewage downstream. Minutes roll into hours and with no chance of being overheard – other than by the scurrying Rattata – you decide it’s high time you got to know your cagey companion. The oldtimer snaps out of his reverie, wiping away his tears and divulging his tale…

    “It all started on the fateful day in Viridian City, when I agreed to show a rookie trainer how to catch a Pokémon. The kid reminded me of you, now that I think about it… Later that day, he had reported the discovery of a new species off the east coast of Cinnibar Island. Scientists believe that the species emerged from a portal in the deepest depths of the ocean, where volcanic activity is at its highest. You see – volcanoes harbour tremendous amounts of natural energy capable of catalysing such spatial anomalies. The portal destabilised before it could be studied and things for a time went back to normal – until I showed another trainer how to catch a Pokémon…”

    “I didn’t believe it myself for a time. But through a very specific sequence of actions, I was capable of distorting the very fabric of space and time. I was the bridge between their world and ours… An unlikely gatekeeper, although I soon realised that what I was opening were the gates of hell…” The oldtimer had a sombre expression, from what little of his face was shed under Meowth’s torchlight.

    “You see, harmless as these beings are, they are not governed by our world’s physics. The more of them that emerged from the portal, the more their world would leak into ours… At first, there was no cause for concern. Trainers were reporting great riches; troves of rare candies, technical machines, even bicycles, spawning out of thin air… But then the incidents started to happen… Technology around the Cinnibar region would go haywire… And then… The Pokémon… They became corrupted by the glitch over time… It only got worse from there as the portal swelled in size… Trainers who had been in close proximity to the glitch Pokémon were losing their memories, falling into comas they would be trapped in forever. Then there were casualties…” Tears were streaming down his face as his words became less audible. The man’s hands were shaking, covered in the metaphorical blood of the victims he felt responsible for. Just when you thought the story couldn’t get any graver, the old man continued.

    “That’s when the military stepped in… A team of special Ops were tasked with hunting down the glitch Pokémon one by one… The Missingno. were not at fault, but they were gunned down without mercy all the same… But this didn’t stop more from coming through the portal… It was decided they would wipe out the incident zone, closing the portal for good, but at great cost… While Cinnibar Island was evacuated long before the induced eruption of its volcano, countless Pokémon were lost, their habitats completely destroyed.” With his tale drawing to a close you feel a mixture of emotions stirring within; mourning for the loss of so much life, anger at the cruelty of humans and frustration with rift between glitch and mankind might never be repaired. It dawns on you that the old man has been dealing with these emotions for most of his life, his drunken episodes suddenly not so surprising.

    “Feeling personally responsible for the loss of so many lives, I went into hiding… I have been travelling the world under different aliases for over fifteen years – but the Missingno. you faced has a score to settle with me. He’s followed me to the ends of the earth and won’t stop until his species are avenged. The fool doesn’t realise that I’m an old man, and if he doesn’t get his vengeance on me, nature will soon do his work for him! If only I could bring back his fallen brothers… Or return him to the world he came from… But no, I could never open the portal again…” The pathway stopped there. While your escape came grinding to a halt, sewage water continued to flow down a dark and dingy cylinder a few meters in height and width. There was ample room for one of your aquatic allies to ferry you from here on, but were you brave enough to continue?

    “Man, I had to skip over some succulent Candyfloss.” The trainer gripes as he realizes he has to attend to his friend before things get out of hand. The trainer surely misses the good old days. To start off the summer, his father would bring him to the fair, and always get on every ride at least once. His father sought out many memory forming moments with his child, compensating for the fact that Aposteriori’s mother was not around to share in love giving part.

    “I wish I was ten again. I would be getting on the tallest rollercoaster probably until I puked” the trainer thought to himself, running past the ride as he catches up to Tangela.

    Aposteriori does a giant roll of the eyes, and wonders how in the world Flynn Ryder already fell victim of a match. He understands his friend’s rambunctious nature, but dang the researcher thinks that was fairly fast. Stepping into the circle, he realizes that now there is a crowd, waiting for a spectacle. Aposteriori starts to perspire intensely, not knowing what to do in the heat of the moment. Going with the flow of the crowd, the trainer orders his Pokemon to continue on with the match. Maybe the trainer will show up or something.

    “Flynn, feel free to use Hidden Power against your opponent. Follow up by hugging it tightly with Constrict to give your opponent something worry about.” His voice sounded unsure if this is what he really wants to do on his day off. Alas, the show must go on and the people seem to be unwavering, wanting to spectate at all costs. Flynn on the other hand is always excited to battle, and this will surely keep him entertained. The trainer is just concerned that he may be hurting another trainer’s Pokemon without probable cause.

    “That’s when the military stepped in… A team of special Ops were tasked with hunting down the glitch Pokémon one by one… The Missingno. were not at fault, but they were gunned down without mercy all the same… But this didn’t stop more from coming through the portal… It was decided they would wipe out the incident zone, closing the portal for good, but at great cost… While Cinnibar Island was evacuated long before the induced eruption of its volcano, countless Pokémon were lost, their habitats completely destroyed.” With his tale drawing to a close you feel a mixture of emotions stirring within; mourning for the loss of so much life, anger at the cruelty of humans and frustration with rift between glitch and mankind might never be repaired. It dawns on you that the old man has been dealing with these emotions for most of his life, his drunken episodes suddenly not so surprising.

    “Feeling personally responsible for the loss of so many lives, I went into hiding… I have been travelling the world under different aliases for over fifteen years – but the Missingno. you faced has a score to settle with me. He’s followed me to the ends of the earth and won’t stop until his species are avenged. The fool doesn’t realise that I’m an old man, and if he doesn’t get his vengeance on me, nature will soon do his work for him! If only I could bring back his fallen brothers… Or return him to the world he came from… But no, I could never open the portal again…” The pathway stopped there. While your escape came grinding to a halt, sewage water continued to flow down a dark and dingy cylinder a few meters in height and width. There was ample room for one of your aquatic allies to ferry you from here on, but were you brave enough to continue?
    The man launched into his story... for reasons unknown to him, it appeared that by teaching people how to catch Pokémon, he was somehow able to open a portal to another dimension, a portal which would materialize in the sea near Cinnabar Island. A portal through which very strange Pokémon were able to emerge. "Glitch City..." Keith murmured, having actually visited the distorted dimension once himself. The man went on to explain that, as harmless as Missingno. were, they did not answer to real-world physics. At first, the effects seemed beneficial, but then there were reports of memory loss, comas... even death. Keith wasn't sure what to say to this- the old man felt personally responsible for all of this! Then, the old man continued. The military had gotten involved, had hunted down the beings one by one, gunned them down without a single shred of mercy or remorse. And then came the most shocking part of the story...

    "They made Cinnabar's volcano erupt?!" Keith half exclaimed in shock and anger. He had heard of that incident, but as far as he'd known, it was just a freak accident, a natural disaster. But to think that people actively sought to make the thing erupt, were responsible for wiping out so many Pokémon, whether Missingno. or otherwise... Keith couldn't speak. He felt sick, and not because of the sewer, either. He knew many people feared Missingno., those who believed in its existence mostly seeming to dislike it... but this... this was all-out warfare against the Misisngno. Aggression and hostility against a peaceful species of Pokémon just because their odd physiology caused strange things to happen... Yes, people have died, but it's not like the Missingno. intended for such things to happen! Surely there was a solution that involved less violence!

    The man went on, explaining that he went into hiding, given his feeling of personal responsibility for what had happened. Apparently, however, the Kabutops Skeleton Missingno. from before was one with a score to settle- his intention, to avenge his species. It seemed he, too, believed the old man personally responsible, even though all he was guilty of was unwillingly being the means of opening a portal to Glitch City.

    "Perhaps he can be reasoned with," Keith suggested. "I might not be the one to reason with him, but..." his fingers brushed up against a Poké Ball on his belt as he spoke. "...I have a friend who is in a much better position to understand Missingno.'s plight," he murmured. "She used to be a Missingno. herself, when she was alive. If anyone can try and reason with that Missingno., it would be Myrtle here." He turned to look at the old man. "A Missingno. once saved my life," he said. "I think the least I can do is help this Missingno. any way I can."

    Presently, they came to the end of the pathway. If they were to continue onward, it would be through the water, through the filthy sewer water. "Sneee..." Lenny wrinkled his nose at the water, before tapping a claw against the Ice Ball on Keith's belt, withdrawing himself.

    "Well, this shouldn't be a problem," Keith remarked, taking another Poké Ball off his belt. "Go, Aquarius!" he exclaimed, as a Tentacruel was unleashed from the ball and into the sewer water.. Once she was ready, Keith climbed atop his Tentacruel, with two of her tentacles gently holding him in place. Keith then motioned for the old man to climb on as well, at which point Aquarius would swim whichever way they needed to go with her Trainer and the old man Surfing on her back.

    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.

    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.
    As the sun was setting behind the horizon, the sea’s air turned into a faint wisp of its warmer self. A small breeze was more than enough to get Lucas to put his coat back on, but not enough to move from his lazy resting position to do so. The waves had been getting increasingly harder as they got closer to shore, slowing down the Wailord who was trying her best to gently break through them on account of her trainer on top. Another tide pushes against her and she bellows a soft moan.
    “Everything all right Pearl,” her trainer asked from atop.
    The Wailord gave another soft moan in return.
    “Aww, don’t give me that. You’re saying you’re having trouble in this water?” he said playfully. “You, the big mammoth of the ocean is letting a little wave get in the way?”
    The Wailord cheered a moan.
    “That’s right,” Lucas complimented her, “you’re a big girl aren’t you.” He started rubbing the Wailord’s top in a ticklish manner. “You’re not going to let some silly itty-bitty wave get the best of you, no.” He continued rubbinging the Wailord. Pearl was a big-hearted lug of a Wailord and surprisingly young and childish for someone her size. She blew a small geyser of water as a joyous response.
    “That’s the spirit. Now get ready, we’re about to break through the current,” he looked on at the gulf ahead. Sharp cliffs surrounded the place, dotted with the occasional cave or grotto, and met up in an almost crescent moon that stirred the water between into violent rapids. Most people were discouraged from visiting the places as many people had not returned from it, but that is what had made it the perfect place for pirates to hide their treasure, and thus lent the place its name; Pirate’s Cove.
    Treasure was the exact and only reason Lucas was here. After his unfortunate accident at home, his base ended up in a state of disrepair that required attention and finance, neither of which Lucas could be said to have much of. It would be a lie to say he only needed the money for repairs, the sense of going treasure hunting excited him furiously, and he intended to take all of it if he could. ‘To Distortion with museums and the poor,’ he had said. Had Lucas brought his conscience with him, the Gallade would have surely made him share his findings with others. But as long as Lucas could tell him he was only going to find what was needed to pay for repairs, he wouldn’t have to worry about Rags’ nagging. Besides Rags was needed elsewhere and couldn’t waste time babysitting his trainer.
    The idea of torrential waters blocking the surf ahead did little to stop his enthusiasm, and instead fuelled it as it made him confident that the treasure remained as little touched as possible. Only with strong or exceptionally large Pokémon could one hope to cross the waters, and his Wailord Pearl was both. Besides her, Lucas had brought Faust his Quiet, obedient Dusclops for light and Mal the Lonely, devoted Zubat for sound. In addition, he had decided to bring Amabel his Tynamo with him. Amp was a new member of the team but Lucas had spent massive amounts of time training her at his base; something he was better at than he’d ever admit to people. This would be the first time she was brought with him though, and he hoped he could use Faust and Mal as model examples for her. Similar to Pearl, Amabel was young and childish, but unlike Pearl, she was more immature and naďve, and would require a close eye and careful direction.
    Lucas put on his jacket once the tidal waves came into close view and squatted in a preparative position. “Ready girl?”
    The Wailord blew a wet roar in confidence.
    “Then full speed ahead!” Using the momentum of the waves and her swimming, Pearl charged for the waters in an attempt to break through the surf, in what would be he first leg of their quest for treasure.

    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.

    Areas:
    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.


    “Ah, the beautiful Laguna Lake! I’ve always wanted to come here.” Said The Doctor, breathing deeply. The air was as sweet as it could be and the lake was crystal clear. There were a very few people around, quietly eating, drinking and having fun. The Doctor thought about letting his Pokemon out as well. He pulled out a Pokeball from his Pokebelt and attached it to his sonic screwdriver. Putting his hand forwards, he pressed the button. “Go, Casper!” A red light came from the Pokeball as it quickly shaped up into a Chinchou.

    Chinchou, quickly hopped towards the doctor and started rubbing itself to The Doctor’s feet. “Now, now.” Said The Doctor, bending down towards his Chinchou. “How are you my friend?” Asked The Doctor, gently patting her head. In response, Casper gave out a weakest of jolts, letting The Doctor know how she felt. The Doctor and Casper had very good understanding of each other. “Now then, time to explore the lake, shall we?” The Doctor was really looking forward to know what kind of Pokemon lived around the lake and within it. He took out his Journal and marked “Day 1, Entry one: By Far the most beautiful place I have ever seen. If this is not heaven, I don’t know what is.”

    After making his note, The Doctor went near the Lake. He took out his bottle of water and put it inside the lake to fill it up. Once the bottle was filled, The Doctor took a sip. “How sweet is this water?” asked The Doctor, having some more, while staring at his reflection in the lake. “Come here Casper, get yourself fresh.” The Doctor asked his beloved Casper to step on inside the water. The Doctor could sense mystical powers in the vicinity. Was it really something mystical? Or was it just a feeling?

    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.
    Somewhere high atop a residential tower in Seaside City, nestled in a tiny studio apartment was Benjamin, or Ben as he like to be called. And with him was a Shelgon, one of the few faithful companions left in his possession.

    "It'll have to do." He announced, "it's the tallest man-made structure on Whale Island, and this is long overdue." Though listening intently, Shelgon avoided making eye contact.

    Ben was speaking of her evolution. Bagon and Shelgon have long held aspirations of flight, and are typically known to throw themselves off mountainous terrain in preparation for such a day. Though less could be said about his Shelgon's ambitions to do so. Her Careful nature has kept her from reaching her final evolutionary form, though it wasn't a problem with Ben, he couldn't help but feel a sense of guilt that his Shelgon wasn't enjoying the quality of life that most of her species are accustomed to.

    "Shell.. shelgon?" she murmured, cautiously inching toward the large apartment window. Her eyes surveying the gloomy grey skies, perhaps troubling herself with thoughts of doubt.

    With the seemingly perfect destination decided on, Ben hastily gathered a few necessary supplies for a day out. The usual potions, repels, escape ropes and such. Or whatever happened to be laying around, last minute packing often left him quite unprepared.

    "Well, my friend." He began, "We're off to the Hydro Electric Dam. I promise by the end of today you'll see life through a whole new perspective... And hopefully a few miles above ground!" Ben chuckled, making his way toward the door.

    Shelgon shuttered at the thought, though if she'd learned anything through the years in his company, it was that it was hard to change the mind of a stubborn man. And with that, she halfheartedly made her way behind him.
