.:Crater Island - Iridi Beach:. (Please reply in DeepSkyBlue)
kaisap112: The young trainer is in distress as she can only watch the poor giant swim away and her Pokemon wavering and struggling to keep conscious. She looks at the teary eyes of her poor Skitty, hoping that she could do something for every one of them. What matters the most right now, is the safety of that poor Poliwag. In a swift manner, a mechanical ball is thrown up into the air, followed by a collection of sparkles and light. As the ball descents, a figure rises up to the surface of the churning sea.
"Seal. Seal-seal-seal. Seal-"
She recalls the exhausted Finneon and jumps back into the water. She places her Skitty on her head before clinging to the back of the male Seal named Minori. “Minori, think you can Surf me and Kitty to that island? I’m even more worried about that Poliwag now." She said with a quiver in her voice. The Seal's enthusiasm vanishes as he takes on a more serious mood. He nods at his trainer's orders, hoping to serve her well.
The tidewater becomes animated as the hours of darkness approaches. Danger is imminent as the seas are known to be rough during the night time. The sun unites with the horizon, forming a spectacular display of warm colors as they reach the secluded area of the island where the Poliwag was heading to. She orders Minori to stop near the shoreline beside the cave as voices breached the echoes of waves in the cave.
"There you are you little monster! We don't know how you got away the first time, but I'll make sure myself that escaping and resisting is futile! Get back in here if you know what's good for you!" shouted a lady in a stern voice. Cries of Pokemon are heard, reverberating within the enclosed space, lost, sad, and wavering.
What will Noriko do?

Arc_Angel and lilbluecorsola: A woman sits underneath a proud and imposing tree, reaching for the heavens in its majesty. An inquisitve Golett roams their radius, analyzing and taking in the sights that the park has to offer, experiencing a world completely foreign and different from where she hailed. A world of no boundaries, a world full of things to discover and learn. He scurries all over, filled with new emotions that cannot be shown, filled with the spirit of "life", as his trainer chuckles at his antics.
Left, right, left, right, tap tap. Alternating steps, following a rhythm of harmonious frequencies. The sound of feet striking pavement, as faint shuffling trails it. A girl with eyes filled with compassion and excitement, and glasses shining against the sun, moves through the busy streets of Salin City, brimming with confidence in every turn like a native city-dweller. A Snorunt shadows her with a Sketchpad in hand, taking in the landscape for future references and inspiration, known as the little art prodigy of Jessica's team, not to mention the youngest addition to it.
Minutes pass by before she reaches park grounds. A gentle breeze blows through the park, the ruffle of the leaves blends with the sounds of the fountain water and the sounds of nature, forming a symphony of little delights. Little specks of sunlight passing through the tree canopy highlights a woman and her Golett sprawled out on the grass underneath it. She casts a smile before getting a devilish idea. She moves around the park without a whisper above a breath, gliding with stealth and assurance. She hides behind the bush behind the towering tree as she hushes her Snorunt.
After they settled down from the initial shock, they laughed heartily together, causing a few eyes to be set upon them as park strangers pass by. Remaining unfazed by this, they greet each other with bright smiles and spirits of zeal. They introduce their babies to each other, helping them get comfortable with the scenario before deciding to take a walk while Kristen shows Dwemer her sketchpad.
They walk around the park, catching up with each other's lives, it was a walk full of merriment and emotion. Though they haven't met each other for quite a long time, it's as if they've been connected all this time in the way they're acting right now. Light shines through the thick flora of the park, illuminating the area with vibrant colors and enchantment. Minutes pass by, eventually a few hours too. Time flies when there's someone to enjoy it with. As the sun is beginning to set, a picture-perfect environment encompasses Kristen to break out the pencil, the sky itself is a work of art, a mixture of just the right amount of cool and warm colors to give the effect of nostalgia and coziness. Clouds are clearing up as the wind picks up, having the women look at each other's tired but satisfied faces. Their reunion is cut short as alarms go off and sirens woo. The peaceful atmosphere quickly shifts to a tense one as police officers ran amok. Shouts and screams are heard from different directions as the two babies cower in fear behind close to their trainers.
What will the duo do?
.:Brine Island - Coral Harbor:. (Please reply in Silver)
Coolz8: Strangers walk pass you, minding their own family and friends, the lad's calls drowned by the merry-making on this fine day. The water teems with life, may it be people or pokemon. You've stayed in one spot for the whole morning and you're staring to feel sick of it. You decide to explore by yourself with 'lil Trick. You look around with marvel as you leave footsteps on the shoreline, eventually to be washed away by the foamy tidewater. The water glistens, calling for your name once more, Trick is starting to sweat despite the cooling sea breeze. You jump into the cool waters, splashing and forming bubbles and ripples.
You and Trick float on the water face up when you notice a blue ball floating near the corner of your eyes, dangling into your view. You quickly snap out of your trance of relaxation as you were about to fall asleep for an afternoon siesta in the beach. You take a closer look at the blue ball, it shudders and twitches, before revealing to be the ear of a cute Marill.
It tilts its head and inspects you with such curiosity. It eyes you with big round eyes, before diving back underwater. It looks like it wants to play with you.
What will you do?
.:Ion Island - Thunder Fields:. (Please reply in Yellow)
ChaoticHell83: The thunder clouds are rumbling. Sound of death echoing. Consecrating light flashing. Gales blowing. Pitter-patter-pitter-pat. Darkness shrouds the Thunder Fields of the famous Ion Island. An island of huge tragedies and danger if you're not careful. The resting place of all the poor critters caught between the legendary fight, some say they still fight on this island occasionally... The constant thunderstorms that plague this field gives those adventurers thrill and excitement, perhaps a bit too much for what they bargained for.
Everyone knows that the only lifeforms that call this dreadful place "home" are electric types, but sometimes a few Pokemon get lost here and there and get washed up here. You decide that this place is a bit too much for a solo trek, giving you chills down your spine, prompting you to send out your two companions. The newly-caught Lotad shuffles over to your side, holding on tight as the sky draws streaks of lightning around it. Meanwhile, the Scizor stands with pride and bravery, standing its ground against even the loudest of thunders. You see a few Pokemon dashing across the field, looking for shelter as the wind grows into a gale, making it look like a storm is coming. A lonely Mareep can be seen treading in dangerous waters, looking lost as it moves aimlessly. There's also a cave a distance from where it is located, you can decide to brave the weather and go to the poor Mareep, or you can save yourself, and your Pokemon by hiding in the cave.
What will you do?
.:Ruin Island - Amor Temple:. (Please reply in DarkOrange)
Re: Cascadia Updates #4: For Realz
After the shock her old friend gave her startling her from her half dazed thoughts Stacey got up and greeted her with a large hug. Perhaps a little forward but she was happy to see Jess again, it had been such a long time and this action conveyed her feelings on their meeting so aptly. They had garnered a few looks from passers by but Stacey paid no attention to their stares. Jess looked a little embarrassed at first by the embrace but soon they began to walk through the park taking in the sights and sounds as they conversed. Jess remained slightly behind Stacey in their slow walk and Stacey smiled, she could sense her trying to find her words and she asks about her reffing job hearing her curse herself for bringing up work. Chuckling Stacey replied easily looking over her shoulder to meet the eyes of her travelling companion.

"They were worried I was becoming withdrawn stuck in the Mansion with the dead and perhaps I was. Human interaction is important too and I've learnt a lot as I go along. Meeting new trainers is always refreshing, they bring such vigour and enthusiasm to Pokemon Battles and its easy to feed off that."
After her answer Jess asked how she was and Stacey smiled again, "I'm fine really thanks but ready for this that's for sure. How have you been, been keeping busy yourself? I've noticed you've caught new Pokemon since we last met and I must approve wholeheartedly with your choice. Snorunt, especially female ones are wonderful company." Stacey waved to the little snow hat Pokemon as she spoke of her and giggled as she saw Dwemer keeping up with her avidly looking her over. He had seen a Froslass in Eve but not her pre-evolved form, she was ... interesting to look at.
They fell into a comfortable silence walking next to each other now and Stacey felt that Jess was still a little nervous around her and it made Stacey a little sad. She never felt a higher sense of importance, she just kind of fell into her position. She loathed fame, didn't want to be known around the world which was a bit absurd for a trainer wanting to push to become a Ghost Pokemon Master, fame would come with such a position. She dealt with the notoriety as best as possible and hid away in her home when she couldn't. The day was moving along fast it seemed as the sun made its path through the sky leaving behind trails of gold, orange and red as it began to go to bed itself. It was so pretty and Dwemer thought so too making mental pictures of the colours and how they melted together. He had a brilliant photographic memory and could pull on any past picture he had seen with ease, something that made Stacey a little jealous; her memory sucked! Stacey noticed Kristen begin to draw something on her artists pad and Dwemer turned his attention away from the sky to observe the Snorunt who guarded her picture closely instructing the Golett to wait by the tree and he pondered the order before walking over to the tree and making mental pictures of that instead. Stacey snorted a little unlady-like at her Pokemon's reaction, he was such a relaxed Pokemon he didn't take offence to the instruction. When Kristen was finished they all took a look nodding with their approval, it was simply lovely.
They began and made their way towards the exit to the park towards their hotel, they would have more time tomorrow to converse, perhaps even go to the beach that would be an experience for Dwemer, trying to explain what bikini's were for. Stacey held back a loud laugh as her thoughts took hold of her again but suddenly the air was pierced by the sound of high-pitched sirens which brought Stacey back to reality but it was Jess's haunting wail that nearly had the young woman jump of her skin.
'What the Hell??' she thought trying to still the hammering in her chest. She felt her eyes narrow for a moment not appreciating the shock before she relaxed her face. It was her friend after all that was distressed, stop being so mean. Damn it, she felt that hold the Mansion had over heart crush harder wanting her to berate the young girl for her weak actions as she knelt down rocking back and forth. She was lost in her memories for the moment and Stacey could observe her frazzled state. Her gaze was harsh and she hated herself for it and taking all her strength she pushed through her own mental war, the darkness retreated to the back of her mind and she sighed with relief. She quickly soothed Kristen whoo looked terrified of the noise and her trainer's reaction to it. Dwemer was more interested in what the sound was but moved to the Snorunt upon his trainer's instruction and tried some small talk ... he was more the silent type but he asked about her drawing as Stacey moved to Jess. She wondered what had caused this retreat into herself when the sirens sounded louder in her own mind. She blinked as her mind flashed back to that day. She was enjoying a parade with her then young Rotom when the attack had hit causing the sirens to sound. She had been injured then but thankfully her Pokemon was safe. Jess had been there with her that day in amongst the crowd and her memory sped forward to the first of many battles that took place that day. How that Machamp had been ripped apart ..." Blinking again Stacey stared down at Jess and placed her hands on her shoulders hoping to ground her.
"We're not there any more Jess, that day is long gone. They're just police or perhaps ambulance sirens. Come on love, Kirsten;s getting a little freaked out now," she said as gently as she could whilst part of her mind was begging her to slap the nonsense out of her, that dark part that always fought the rest of her. Jess looked up at her and suddenly her eyes looked a little clearer as she realised where she was. She took hold of Stacey's outstretched hand and stood up fighting an internal war that Stacey saw etched across her face. She eventually stopped mentally berating herself and smiled a little smile at the woman who returned it.
“Should we go check it out? Maybe we can help somehow…”
Stacey looked at her and felt that was putting on a brave face but perhaps she felt the need to be brave right now after that show. Stacey grinned as wide as possible and nodded her head.
"Sure hon if you're feeling up to. I'm sure it won't be anything too big but a little help goes a long way. Anyway I'm sure Dwemer would love to see a Police or Ambulance Car, he's very interested in human technology and constructs such as the buildings here. Come on I think the sirens were heading over there, lets go have a look see." She grabbed Jess's hand looking like an excited child hoping that the little bravado and excuse for Dwemer to see some action would calm her enough to take her mind off her thought and concerns. She grabbed Dwemer's hand in her other and began to jog towards the source of sound nearly dragging her companions with her.

Ah! My first encounter with an electric Pokemon! No way I can pass this up, as dangerous as it is I'll keep Marcus safe in his Pokeball. Scizor should be fine outside with me. I could also send out my new Cubone, or my Carnivine. Hmm... I need to name them- A blast of thunder breaks Caesar's thought and causes him to duck a bit and cover his head before taking off towards the Mareep, making sure to not move too quickly as to frighten it.
"I want to help you!" He begins calling out, as he gets closer, "It's dangerous out here, even for an electric like you!"
