Lethal Fiery Warrior
Forest of Adventure - Please reply in limegreen
Empoleon Dynamite: While Brawly is struggling with Beedrill, you're drawn to Teddiursa whose complete change in temperament during the past minute has helped you to see it just as it really is - a very frightened baby bear. Knowing you can't just leave it here after the battle is over, you resolve to ensure it's alright before moving on, but for the time being your main priority is the ongoing battle. If Brawly is to have any chance at all of winning, he needs to get Beedrill onto the ground which is a lot easier said than done. A random thought pops into your mind though, and thinking about it, you realise it may just work. Relaying your instructions to Totodile, He nods vigorously, grabs hold of Beedrill's antennae as hard as he can and then yanks back on them with all his might. Beedrill is so shocked it doesn't know which way is up or down, the agony it's experiencing do intense that it temporarily forgets it needs to keep its wings moving. The two Pokémon drop to the ground, Brawly leaping off of Beedrill just before impact in order to avoid crashing headlong into the forest floor. Beedrill lands awkwardly, injuring its left wing and making it impossible to fly properly. It looks up at brawly, so enraged it quite literally sees red, before it unleashes a barrage of Poison Sting needles at Brawly who is so proud of himself that he forgets to dodge. The needles pelt into him, a couple piercing his skin and succeeding in poisoning him...
Trillim: Deciding the best way to start out on your Pokémon adventure is to travel to a forest known specifically for providing just that, you enter the lush green woodland with an air of excitement. With so much to look forward to there's no telling what may lay ahead, so your best bet is to take it as it comes. Sougawa seems to agree, and though he's way out of his element wandering through the forest, he's enjoying himself nonetheless. The sounds of nature surround you and though no forest creatures choose to let you see them you know they're around, watching your movements from a safe distance while they try to work out if you're friend or foe. It's not the Pokémon hiding in the forest that have your interest, however, as the steady beat of a drum somewhere in the distance has managed to snag your immediate attention. Sougawa looks up at you questioningly, wondering if you may have some answers as to what the sound may mean, but seeing as you're just as baffled as him, you can offer him no answers. The next minute a shrill scream cuts through the air like a knife, startling both of you, and from the sound of it, it's coming from the same direction as the drumbeat. Sougawa looks up at you again, this time wondering if you have any intention of investigating, both of you knowing full well that scream sounded very much like trouble waiting to happen should you decide to investigate.
Mediville - Please reply in lemonchiffon
allsystemsaredown: With Electrike now unable to use its most harming attack, Torchlight is pumped at the thought of showing the little pup what a real battle is all about. Something in its expression tells you it already knows its in trouble, for the disapproving look it had shot its boy trainer clearly conveyed the fact it doesn't particularly trust in his judgment. Whatever the case, Electrike follows the screaming child's instructions, whether due to obedience or knowing that this battle could teach the boy a lesson or two you don't know, but it races forward to Tackle Cyndaquil only to end up coughing up smoke as the thick Smokescreen Torchlight has just released to shield herself has helped to protect her exact location from her enemy. From amidst the cloud of smoke Torchlight listens carefully, honing in on where Electrike's coughing is coming from, before lunging forward and Tackling it. The two Pokémon come rolling out of the dense cloud to come to a stop before Pidgey who still doesn't appear to be one hundred percent after all of the damage Electrike's attacks had done to it. The frightened bird squawks weakly, wanting the battling duo to move well away from it, but before they can re-engage, Torchlight traps Electrike in his Leering gaze. Electrike is temporarily spellbound, unable to attack, while its trainer stomps the ground even harder, screaming for it to paralyze Cyndaquil. Seems the kid still isn't learning anything, but Torchlight certainly is...
RaunchyFad: Not at all concerned with the thieving Shinx until Rocky decides to take off after it at a surprisingly fast-paced waddle, you figure that trying to calm down an angry storekeeper is pointless seeing as your Pokémon has other ideas as to how to pass her time. Whether she's just interested in seeing if Shinx is willing to share, or she has other plans is beyond you, but if the sausages are still edible then it may be worth seeing where the little kitty has taken off to. Leaving the storekeeper cursing up a storm behind you, you take off after Rocky, soon spying her huddled next to an old oak tree in the middle of the village town square. Upon closer inspection you find there is a small crack in the base of the tree trunk while the hearty sound of something delightfully meaty being devoured is coming from inside. It doesn't take a genius to figure out this is where Shinx has taken cover, and a moment later when Rocky decides to waddle inside and say hi only to be forcefully ejected from Shinx's hideout, you wonder if the sausages are really worth fighting for or if you should simply leave the electric kitten to its meal.
The Graveyard - Please reply in silver
Furrett: That's alright. Just remember that graveyards don't always necessarily mean there's a ghostie about ^-~. Also, Tackle isn't a part of Sentret's moveset so it can't be used :/
Though you would think the sudden attack upon your Pokémon will be something to be concerned about, a strange sensation rushes through you at the thought of finding yourself in your very first battle situation. Omega can certainly use the experience, and if you play your cards right you may even end up with a capture. Pushing all negative thoughts to the back of your mind you immediately issue your instructions, and although it takes Omega a moment to register what you've said due to his surprise at having suddenly become this little Natu's worst enemy, he reacts out of defense if nothing more. Scared out of his wits, he extends his claws, reaches out, and swats at the tiny bird, Scratching it. Natu is surprised, hopping backward and Leering threateningly at Omega, freezing him to the spot. It seems Omega has his work cut out for him with this little one...
Desert of Illusion - Please reply in darkorange
Music Box: Rumours of two special villages that are supposedly reported to be hidden somewhere upon the vast plains of the Desert of Illusion is what has attracted you to this sweltering, arid region. Miles upon miles of dry, barren land where only the hardiest can survive are stretched out as far as the eye can see no matter which direction you face, making you wonder if any such villages really are out here after all considering how uninviting the environment. The trek is far more difficult than you'd initially thought due to the humidity, and as the day wears on it only becomes worse. For a place that's supposed to be full of life, it appears to be rather barren. Releasing Totodile not only for some company, but also to provide you with some much needed water, you're enjoying the feel of the cool, inviting spray he's releasing as it falls upon your roasting skin when you notice some movement from the corner of your eye. It seems you're not the only one in need of a refreshing soaking, as the little Cacnea that has waddled up to share it with you appears rather happy to have found a couple of new friends...
Silverton Ranges - Please reply in lightsteelblue
Kasai: Please remember that you can order your Pokémon to use up to three attacks, offensive or defensive, per round of battle. This will help the battle to move along at a much faster pace which will, in the longrun, work out better for both you and your updator.
Admiring Harumi's fighting spirit you absentmindedly run your fingers along the smooth surface of your second Pokéball, tempted to call Phoebe out should she be needed. Taking Harumi's guts into consideration though, you hold off for the time being, allowing her the opportunity to finish the battle she's begun. Harumi, panting a little after that last nasty hit, races in for another attack, leaping into the air and kicking her little legs forward to Scratch Poochyena right across the nose. Harumi squeals with delight in response to Poochy's pained cry, but the mangy mutt is quick to retaliate, lunging forward to slam into your little chicken with another Tackle. Harumi is looking rather sore and tired, the scratches on Poochyena appear to be stinging quite badly, and Poochy's trainer is smirking arrogantly. Meanwhile, Swinub looks up at you and squeaks, a pleading look in its eyes, as though asking for your help...

I think I have fleas.
Peering into the crack in the tree trunk, Paul that most of the sausages had been devoured, and any that were still intact were covered in leaves, dirt, or had been gnawed on. Still wanting a bite to eat, he stuck his hand into the crack and groped for a wiener, only to be forced out just as Rocky had been.

Rocky did her best and shrugged with a lack of shoulders, then waddled off in the opposite direction. She knew that by now Paul had lost his chance and wasn’t going to get any free sausages.
Paul’s stomach rumbled as he picked up a handful of acorns off the ground. Unable to get the meat that he wanted, he disdainfully looked at the small brown nuts and hoped that the oak tree he stood under was better at providing food than the shinx that hid amongst its roots. As he started to chew on them he followed after Rocky while finding the situation to be very surreal. Looking at the acorns in his hand and then at his larger acorn buddy, the sick thought occurred that they might taste the same. He shook it off, slouched to hide what he was eating, and after finishing the tough, chewy acorns he started to chew and suck on his knuckle. Maybe if he followed his seedot, she’d lead him to real food.

Better than YOU!
After noticing the Cacnea, Tim pulled out his pokedex to check it out a bit.

As Tim was putting his pokedex away, he thought to himself,"Why is this cute little pokemon out here all alone? I'm sure it must be alone considering that there doesn't seem to be much else in every direction..." All of a sudden, Tim noticed that Squirt ceased to spray water and saw that Totodile was somewhat curious in this Cacnea. Tim, also being interested, decided to befriend this little cactus pokemon. Remembering that Squirt stopped spraying water, Tim remembered how arid it was there.

No need for the disco
Jamie and Volcape, his trusty Chimchar, had reached their destination: One group of areas known collectively as the Arcane Realm. Although the place was as alien as Sinnoh was when he moved there, Jamie nevertheless felt a surge of adrenaline fly through his veins at the thought of the adventures he would face. Volcape sat on his shoulder, squeaking happily as they reached the entrance to some place called the Ancient Tomb. Remembering from the studies of the realm that the tomb was supposedly full of treasure, he was ecstatic on entering the place and so the two walked warily into the entrance, wondering what could be inside as the outside light slowly faded to give way to the natural interior light, with the single major light source being the everlasting flame burning from the Chimchar's rear.

You know what to do!" Harumi moved toward the Poohcyena with less energy, but more determination. What will come now? Will Harumi make it through this? What will happen to her? What will happen to all of us? "Harumi! FIGHT IT!" Kasai screamed in tension, hurting her own ears. Harumi seemed to not figure out why she was screaming, which was slightly distracting...

They couldn't just let it be without at least giving it a cursory glance. "Yeah, buddy," Oza announced to the questioning Pokémon, "Let's go check it out! Sounds like trouble, I know, but isn't that part of being on an adventure?"
The little Buizel nodded once, his eyes just as keen as Oza's for the adventure before them, before they were off, marching to the beat of the resounding drum in the distance and trying to locate the source of that shrill cry.

The next step was to use the assault first, while Electrike was still scared of Cyndaquil and his menacing eyeballs. She had it all planned out. "Torchlight, here's our plan. Tackle! Leer! Smokescreen!"

How pink are YOU?
Hearing the sound of what seems to be crying, Abbi walks in the direction it is coming from. Spotting a small Wurmple huddling by the body of what appears to be its mother, Abbi begins to feel very sorry for the poor Wurmple, only to turn around to find the murderer itself floating by a tree and giving her an angry look. Immediately jumping into action without a single thought crossing her mind, Abbi stands directly in front of the Wurmple and the dead Beautifly so that the Koffing cannot get to them, tossing a Pokeball into the air to reveal her Rattata. Sitting up in attention, the Rattata gives the Koffing the same angry look that it's giving his trainer.

Barking orders at her Pokemon, Abbi looks back and forth between the Koffing, McCuddles, and the Wurmple, never moving her head but only her eyes.

Adrenalin still pumping in his veins, Potato quickly skated over his options mentally. Not that he had many. He finially decided he would stop the Natu from evading any of Omega’s possible future attacks, that attack. Then in the back corner of his mind he realized that his Sentret could learn Surf. He decided he would try that, but still scratch up the pshychic bird incase the surf didn't work.
“Omega, you’re going to want to use Foresight first off!” Potato yelled “Then try and see if you can get a surf to come here to attack Natu with, then finish by scratching the bird incase our water idea doesn’t work!

After debating on where she should start her adventure here in the Arcane Realm, she headed towards the Desert of Illusion. She was curious to find out whether the two villages that supposedly reside there were real or not, also to find out what kinds of Pokemon could live in such a harsh environment. Entering the desert it wasn't long before she began to regret her decision. Collapsing to the ground she said to the sky "c'mon, just one little cloud to block out the sun..."

He loved the heat and the surroundings, especially the fact that there wasn't a drop of water in sight. He was in his own little world rolling down small sand hills. Alina got back up and looked at her Cyndaquil halfway buried in sand now and said "I really wish you were a water type right now." Igneous gave her a repulsed look as if saying "how dare you wish me to be a water type?" and continued to jump in the sand as Alina followed.

Where the miis are at.
When Tyson stumbled upon the Forest of Adventure he decided to go and explore the fantastic things that could lay inside it. "This place is so beautiful!" were the only words Tyson could muster up to descrive the area he was in. He was so intriegued at the area around him that he decided Freeze should see it too. After reaching for his pokeball Tyson released his Sneasel to see how he would react. Out of a flash of red light appeared the Ice/Dark type."What do you think buddy, is this place awesome or what?"

I guess we should look for food. Come on, Freeze..."

“Time for an all out offence; Charge towards Beedrill and keep swipe it with your Scratch attack! If it tries to fly out of your reach, hit it with a powerful Water Gun!” Without hesitating, Brawly charged towards the Beedrill. Wes and Teddiursa were both eager to see which hot-headed Pokemon would triumph.

enchantress is unfortunately having computer problems currently so I shall be updating you for now and I hope I can do as good job as she has done. I hope you enjoy them ^^
Forest of Adventure (Please reply in limegreen)
empoleon dynamite ~ Clutching the tiny bear Pokemon to your arms you survey your ‘strategy’ in motion and whilst Brawly managed to down the vicious Beedrill he had paid for it. He had a warm red tone to his cheeks as poison seeped into his veins eating away at him from within. Teddiursa casts Brawly a sorrowful look as if it knew how bad a poisoning could feel and found strength and courage enough to make its presence known and cheered Brawly on. Brawly fights through the stinging pain gripping his body and let’s loose a hateful growl at the bee that was currently trying to fly to no avail. Brawly was now thorough ticked off and seemed to be itching to inflict some pain. Deciding that putting strategic battle plans aside for an all or nothing assault you instruct Brawly with what to do next. He lets loose a roar and charges towards Beedrill who looks up in time to see an eneraged Totodile bolting towards it and Brawly lets lose a vicious Scratch that leaves a large cut down Beedrill’s abdomen. Beedrill whines in pain but is not about to give up. With Brawly within a close distance it pulls back its spines before jutting them out striking Brawly hard once in his abdomen, once more in his head and one final time in his right thigh. That Fury Attack sure was fueled by fury and made it all the more powerful. Brawly was cringing with pain and grit his teeth before deciding to soak Beedrill anyway. The Water Gun hit Beedrill point blank and pushed it along the ground. It was looking a right sorry sight now and Teddiursa cheered from within your arms having cheered up at the sight of victory being near. Brawly grins but cries out as the poison builds in his body and saps his strength making him fall to one knee. It was true that Beedrill was looking sodden and beaten but Brawly was slowly succumbing to the poison, it was just of question of who was going to fall first.
Trillim ~ The sound of drums was enticing enough to catch you and your Pokemon’s attention. Although you assumed the sound meant trouble, teamed with the scream how could it be anything else, it still sent a thrill of excitement running down your spine. This was going to be your very first adventure together and you were prepared to face whatever trouble you may encounter. Oza agrees to seek out the sounds and the both you using your senses following the constant thrum. The drum beat gets louder and louder as you move further through the lush forest until it seems like the only sound there. It’s almost intoxicating with its constant rhythm drawing you both ever closer. Another scream startles you as its pitch is higher and volume much louder than before, you must be close.
Small orange lights and a sense of heat hits you and you crouch behind a bush pushing the leaves aside to get a view of what lies behind. It appears to be a large clearing with several small wood and mud huts built in the trees. A large fire burns in its centre, intricate designs etched into the dirt around it. Several Seedot dance around the fire with a few Nuzleaf hitting home-made drums of leaves and logs, they all appear to have mud painted on their bodies in similar intricate designs. They chant to themselves and in the centre of the clearing behind the fire stands a lone Shiftry looking solemn. The screams appear to be coming from a young girl tied to one of the trees with thick rope a small penguin Pokemon known as Piplup tied next to her. She fearfully eyes the grass Pokemon before trying to wiggle free of the ropes binding her. As if sensing you watching her gaze moves over to the bushes you hide behind and her brown eyes widen and fill with hope. It’s obvious that this young girl is in trouble but are you willing to help her?
Qball ~ You glance from the orphaned Wurmple to the vicious Koffing and quickly jump into action leaping before the little worm Pokemon who remains nuzzling its mothers side soft tears falling from its eyes, cascading down its red cheeks. You aren’t about to let this brute kill off another innocent Pokemon. Koffing glares at you, its anger now directed away from the Wurmple and its mother towards you. You summon your starter Pokemon, a small Rattata named McCuddles who despite the large size difference stares down the Koffing with strong defiance and anger. Koffing meets his stare and its thick skin stretches to form a sickening grin. It lets loose a loud snort of laughter, apparently amused by such a tiny Pokemon challenging it however McCuddles is far from amused by Koffing’s actions.
With his instructions received he leaps into action ready to exact some revenge on behalf of Wurmple and commence his very first battle. Koffing still laughing to itself manages to keep a close eye on your Rattata. McCuddles begins to quicken and with a boost of exordinary speed zips off out of sight before ramming into Koffing with a nice Quick Attack. Koffing floats backwards expelling some noxious gases from the impact, a small grimace on its face but it’s soon replace by that constant irritating grin. McCuddles continues on with his assault and leaps around whipping his tail in an effort to reduce Koffing’s defenses but Koffing merely floats forward and rams into McCuddles with a Tackle throwing the small mouse off balance. McCuddles shakes off the hard blow and prepares a Tackle of his own running forward to cover the distance between himself and the poison gas ball. Just as he hits Koffing a cloud of purple gas envelops them both. Koffing easily dodges Rattata’s attack and McCuddles falls to the ground a sick look in his face. That Poison Gas attack has left him looking rather ill, poison slowly trickling into his veins.
Pyschopath ~ Upon your arrival to the Arcane Realm you find yourself standing in front of vast expanse of trees that is the Forest of Adventure. Deciding it’s as good a place as any to explore you enter the undergrowth and begin your journey. Inside you can see that large trees block out a lot of sunlight but let the odd bright beam filter through. Large bushes filled with flowers of all different colours and scents line the path you traverse making it quite a beautiful environment to explore. You decide that you should share this experience your starter Pokemon and release your Sneasel aptly named Freeze asking him what he thought of his new surroundings. Pleased enough to travel out of his ball Freeze walks alongside you through the vast forest and after a good few hours of walking you both decide to take a short rest. Just as you decide to return Freeze to his Pokeball to rest properly you hear a low grumbling noise that suddenly grows louder. Looking down to your stomach you laugh with embarrassment, it’s so loud it filled the forest, you must be hungry. Freeze rolls his eyes before following you further into the forest now in search of food. You travel for another hour and begin to lose hope of ever finding anything remotely edible and even start looking at Freeze with a hungry look in your eyes, one Freeze is hasty to remove. Suddenly an apple rolls by your feet and comes to a stop in front of you. Looking around you can’t see where it could have come from, there are no apple trees in this part of the forest; it just seemed to leap out of the bush … like it wanted you to eat it, how lucky! Excitedly you bend down to pick up the apple when you a hear a high pitched war cry come from the bushes and a white and blue blur flies out from the undergrowth and latches onto the apple for dear life. It casts its little black eyes up to you and glares as if saying ‘this is my apple, back off’ The Pachirisu is quick to pick up the apple keeping it in its death grip. You could leave this little squirrel to its meal and search for food elsewhere or maybe you want to fight for it, it did roll to you after all.
Mediville (Please reply in lemonchiffon)
allsystemsaredown ~ With the battle now swiftly in your favour and the condition of the poor downed Pidgey more worse than it first seemed you feel the need to take out this threat. The young boy who was your opponent was breathing heavily, as if he had just run a marathon his little face going red from anger, it seems though he hadn’t considered losing this battle. Running through a game plan in your mind you focus on assaulting the Electrike whilst it was still locked in Torchlight’s fierce Leer before adding a few more of Torchlight’s attacks into the mix. The smoke is starting to lift and anyone that would pass this part of town would wonder why there was an intermittent cloud of black fog appearing behind these trees. Torchlight drops his Leer and rushes the electric doggie striking him hard and the throwing him along the ground, with Electrike so distracted it had taken a lot more damage. Electrike is starting to pant now these repeated Tackle attacks leaving it bruised and wearing it down.
“Sparky I said use your Thunder Wave, paralyse that stupid rat NOW. You hear me Thunder Wave NOW, NOW, NOW!!” The boy yells his face turning an ugly shade of purple.
Electrike casts an annoyed glance back at its trainer, not happy to be constantly yelled at but summons electrical energy, well tries to. It digs deep and manages to pull a few sparks that zip towards Torchlight who prepares to dodge before it fizzles out not even reaching the Cyndaquil. Taking his opportunity Torchlight fixed the Electrike with another fierce Leer making the already dejected dog shiver in fear; it was beginning to doubt its own abilities. Cyndaquil breathes in and instead of a fog of black smoke a few small wisps leaves his mouth. He tries again with the same result. It seems that he’s now having the same problem as Electrike, using Smokescreen repeatedly has left him out of smoke to breathe, he’d need time to churn up some more. He clenches his little fists together irate that he had failed in that move and even more so when the boy laughs.
“HA HA HA HA, not a strong as you thought. We’re still better and you and your fiery rat are gonna lose … LOSE. Go now Sparky; Tackle it hard and Tackle again even harder.”
RaunchyFad ~ Pouting disappointedly at the disappearing sausages, those that were left in such a state it was unsanitary to eat, you and Rocky dejectedly walk on. You decide to continue the hunt for food and as your stomach roars for the world to hear you pick up a handful of acorns and begin to munch on them. They’re a far cry from hot tasty sausages but you eat them anyway only stopping when your mind begins to compare the taste of acorns to Rocky, a sick thought indeed. Following Rocky who knew nothing of your disturbing thoughts you head back into town on the search for food. It’s not long before the sumptuous smells of hot baking bread reaches your nostrils, the smells coming from a quaint little café with chairs and tables set up outside. Unbeknownst to you a pair of eyes follows you. You walk up to the entrance and peer inside to see several people dining on pastries and breads talking animatedly amongst them. The owner of the café spots you and beckons you inside. You hesitantly enter knowing that you had no money to purchase anything off their menu but are lead to table and you and Rocky sit at a chair each. He hands a lunch menu to you and you feel something push the tablecloth away and skirt past you leg. Taken off guard you look down and see nothing unusual. You look at the menu and feel your hunger grow at every item on it each one with a little descriptive picture that makes your mouth water. A young woman approaches you and asks if you want to order anything. Just as you are about to reply you feel another brush against your legs as a cream blur leaps out from under the table. A startled woman screams and swats away what looks like a cat trying desperately to eat her croissant. The owner storms out and crabs the cat by the scruff of its neck throwing it out onto the street a loud screech following as it hits the pavement. He walks over to you with an angry look in his eyes, maybe he knew you had no money for food.
“Leave now, I’ll not have thieves in my café, you and your flea-bitten Pokemon can both stay on the streets,” he says before you’re ejected from the café. Looking down you can see a small and thin Meowth still with half a croissant in its mouth casting a fearful yet guilty look at you and Rocky. It drops its leftovers by your feet and mewls sadly in apology backing off to hide under a table outside. The owner must have mistaken this Meowth as one of your Pokemon and although it is the reason you lost another chance at a meal it does appear sorry and the half croissant is a peace offering.
The Graveyard (Please reply in silver)
Furret ~ Despite the fear gripping Omega’s body at his creepy environment and the sudden appearance of an enemy he still manages to fire off a scratch that makes the Natu wince. Your cheering is cut a little short though as Natu casts its eyes angrily at your Sentret in a scary Leer making his body lock up in terror. Both Pokemon seemed to be on even ground and despite the situation you can’t help but to grin, this was your first Pokemon battle after all, one you will always remember as such and therefore had you gripped with excitement. You let your mind drift off as you imagine yourself with a group of big and powerful Pokemon such as Tyranitar or Wailord at your side fighting all manner of seemingly unbeatable Pokemon … and winning of course.
You move from the enticing thoughts as you hear Omega whimper still caught in Natu’s Leer and move onto thoughts of this battle. You want to try to gain an upper hand by preventing Natu from blocking any of Potato’s attack and order a Foresight firstly but there’s a problem, Potato can’t move. Natu can however and bounces forward striking Potato in the stomach with a harsh Peck knocking Potato from his shock. The Sentret shakes off his nerves and does as you say and fires off a beam of red light that covers Natu allowing you a somewhat clearer view of the bird now it had a slight red glow to it. Potato digs deep down and tries to summon a Surf, but all he manages to do it go a deep shade of purple as he holds his breath. He can’t bring forth water with none around to draw from. Potato receives another Peck to his belly for his troubles and Potato gets a little mad. He leaps forward and with claws drawn back swipes at the tiny bird with his Scratch leaving small marks along its feathers. Well it doesn’t seem if that plan went too well but hey, it is your first battle.
Desert of Illusion (Please reply in darkorange)
Music Box ~ ~ Upon seeing the new pokemon having slowly waddled its over to you and your Totodile you pull out your new Pokedex and decide to scan it for further information. Your Pokedex tells you that Cacnea can be found in such an arid and dry area as this desert and through storing water in its cells can survive quite a while here. It blinks up at you and smiles happy to see someone new, not at all concerned about the foreign equipment you carry. You squint as you search the horizon and see no other Pokemon, even after a few minutes of scrutiny; it seems to be alone here. Squirt stops spraying his cooling mist of water, his attention drawn to the stranger. Cacnea pouts and jumps up and down pointing at Squirt and giving you both a pleading look. Cacnea seems upset to have lost that little bit of refreshment and locks its eyes on yours silently begging you for some more.
Artifical Dragon ~ After consulting all the areas the Arcane Realm has to offer you finally decide on the arid, humid and vast Desert of Illusion, the lure of two mysterious villages enough to warrant the journey. You enter the desert full of excitement and hope and make your way through the thick sand as best you can. It’s not long however before the continual scolding weather grates on your nerves. Looking up to the sky you shield your eyes from the blistering sunlight and pray for some rain, hail, snow, a cloud or two, hell even a light breeze would be nice. Collapsing to the ground sighing at how hot and sweaty the heat’s making you already, you can see Igneous happily playing in the baking sands rolling down a nearby dune. Igneous emerged from under his sand bed and you openly wish he was a water pokemon shocking the small fire type who wrinkles his nose in disgust before scurrying off to play on another steep dune.
Begrudgingly you follow him trudging up the dune nearly collapsing again at the top. What you see as you reach the top and ever higher into the sun makes your eyes bulge out. A small but beautiful lake sits just at the bottom of the dune surrounded by luscious grass and small bushes, a little gem in the rough hiding behind several large dunes. You can’t help but to thank the lord for hearing your prayer and slowly make your way towards the lake, thoughts of cooling off in the oasis making you shiver with delight. But somewhere in the back of your mind you think that this could be your head-addled brain playing tricks on you, I mean how lucky is it to stumble upon a body of water minutes after wishing for the same thing. Igneous is off in his own world rolling back down the dune you both just climbed forming a small sand ball at the bottom and hasn’t noticed your dilemma. To swim or not to swim, that is the question. It does look so inviting though …
Ancient Tomb (Please reply in gold)
Fishyfool ~ It was a brand new day filled with promise and hope, a perfect time for an adventure. Your travels had taken you from your home in Sinnoh with your partner Chimchar to a land called the Arcane Realm. Though you were a far way from home you still felt the thrill of adrenaline run through your veins fuelling your excitement, the excitement only felt by a trainer about to embark on a new journey, a new adventure. Upon entering the realm you find yourself outside an Ancient Tomb, its stone arch embedded in the wall of a large mountain. The symbols carved into the stone are strange and unlike anything you’ve ever seen before and could very well be a warning to all trespassers but the rumours of treasures buried deep with the winding maze of the Tomb is enough of a lure for you.
You enter the unlit passageway and are thankful for the small amount of light Volcape has coming from the fire on his backside. Volcape sits on your shoulders peering into the darkness squeaking every now and then, trying to keep a calmer demeanour. It’s not long though before the light from the entrance disappears as you make your way around a corner and the tiny flame Volcape provides doesn’t seem to cover much of the passageway and now you can only make out yourselves. Feeling the walls as you go, undeterred you carry on further into the maze of tunnels. Suddenly you feel the wall move away from your hand and realise that you must have made it to a clearing. Instructing Volcape to shed a little more light on your new surroundings, the little monkey Pokemon leaps off your shoulder and begins to make his way around the room. He stops at certain points where he makes out a new path before making his way back to you. He scurries back to you after nearly running into a wall and tells you about the paths he found. He leads you to each of them, each one with a symbol carved above the entrance. The first has a star, the second a diamond, the third a moon and the forth a skull. These symbols must relate to what you’ll find down each path making the skull a little worrying. Volcape looks up to you, waiting for a decision on the next route to take.
Silverton Ranges (Please reply in lightsteelblue)
Kasai ~ You can’t help but to be proud of how well Harumi is faring against a Pokemon with more training and especially at her will and determination to fight despite the odds and the pain of multiple Tackle attacks. Harumi puffs up her chest defiantly and stares down the Poochyena. You ask if she can continue and she bristles at that comment, almost hurt that you’d think she’d give up when a fellow Pokemon was in danger and pain. She is feeling tired and her chest hurts with every breath but she would not give up easily. She nodded at your instructions and lets loose a loud and angry Growl but unfortunately is drowned out by Poochyena’s Howl, both noises cancelling each other out. You scream at Harumi to ‘FIGHT IT’ startling the small Swinub who whimpers in pain as it jars its legs caught in the trap and even making the Poochyena pause for a moment, and a moment is more than enough. Harumi charges forward and leaping up swipes her claws across the dark doggie’s face making it yelp and shake its head, that last attack having drawn a little blood. It whines a little drawing an irritated growl from its trainer before it rushes Harumi with all its strength knocking it over with its Tackle. Both Pokemon are looking exhausted and pained from the multiple attacks, it’s just a case of which Pokemon will hold on the longest as both are showing they’re pretty even.
“Your chicken has a little more bite to it than it would seem child, but Poochyena will obliterate it very soon and then I’ll make you wish you never set eyes on us,” the trainer said smirking confidently but you can almost see a little concern in his eyes. Swinub is recovering from the trap biting further into its leg as it inches away from the mad trainer and his flea-bitten dog and a little further towards you still imploring you to help it.

Time seemed to stand still here, and she wasn't sure when her last drink of water was. Her mouth felt dry, her skin was burning, and she was getting even more frustrated with the desert with every passing minute. Climbing up the sandy hill her feet sunk into the sand and she stumbled constantly as she laboriously climbed up the dune. Finally, she reached the top. Nearly falling down again she thought to herself "It would take a miracle to make it through this. Maybe we should turn back." Igneous was completely oblivious to Alina's misery as he played in the sand. Standing up straight on the hill she shielded her eyes from the sun as she looked out at the barren and desolate desert. It was completely lifeless-- No, wait, there was a small circle of blue out there... Straining her eyes she saw that it sparkled like... water!

She was running down the dune towards the lake when she thought that something was wrong with this picture. Slowing down she thought "this could just be a figment of my imagination..." Confused and somewhat disappointed she continued to walk towards the small, heavenly lake. Igneous's carefree playing in the sand added to her worries, since she was sure if it was real he'd notice it as well. Or maybe he was too preoccupied with his playing to care and she was just worrying too much. She was so thirstly... it couldn't hurt to take a look... They had nowhere else to go anyway. But if it wasn't real...
"No, no, don't think about that," she said to herself. Silently praying she dragged her feet through the sand, walking toward this small miracle in the middle of the most desolate place in the Arcane Realm.

I think I have fleas.
OOC: Oh my GOODNESS. I thought it was gonna be another three weeks before I got a reply. You write a lot, too, so I gotta say I'm pretty titillated to start roleplaying again. C:

Paul then turned his attention to the feeble mewl and looked down to see the croissant sitting slightly dusty upon the ground. He picked it up, blew on it, then stuffed the buttery pastry in his mouth, his eyes tearing up in pure bliss just moments after.
"Bobcats!" Paul squealed as the meowth went to hide underneath one of the café tables. "Jeez, man, you're better than all the other bobcats, no joke."
Paul reached out his hand to try and coax the meowth out of hiding so that he could pet it, but was interrupted by Rocky who had been ignored since they were kicked out.
She kicked Paul in the side, obviously feeling neglected, then walked out into the dusty street in hopes to find bigger and better things. Paul on the other hand didn't want to leave the generous meowth all alone, so he beckoned for it to follow while he was lead by his seedot back into town.
