Re: Individual RP: Joltik
The large bird seemed to have taken an interest in the two of us, (or three, counting Galvantula). It was climbing down the branches, coming closer to us. Thankfully, Galvantula had woken up, and was now starting at the normal flying type. He was happily chattering, being well rested. He stopped being happy, and now sounded more annoyed at the flyer.
"It looks like there's going to be a fight if we don't do something quickly," Chainy said. "Do you want to buy a PokeDoll for $500? Otherwise, you're going to have to fight."
I didn’t want to fight the Swellow. I leaded down and patted Galvantula on the head.
“No need to get so angry,” I said as I reached back into my bag and pulled out five hundred dollars. “It will leave us alone, okay?” as I got up and handed the money to Chainy.

Re: Individual RP: Joltik
“No need to get so angry,” Sammy said to the bird as it squawked raucously at us. She pulled out some money and handed it to me, clearly intending to purchase a PokeDoll. I was expecting this - she already had three Pokemon captured, and both Swellow and Taillow were pretty common back on the mainland. Why capture them here when it's cheaper to do so back home?
“It will leave us alone, okay?” the young girl asked me.
"Yeah, this will work fine," I replied. I threw the doll into some bushes and the Flying-type immediately dove after it. I heard some rustling in the bushes, and I was quite sure the bird wouldn't be emerging for quite a while.
"Okay, onwards," I said, and I led Sammy down a path. It looked like a pretty normal game trail, although there were quite a few flowers. Slowly, the number of flowers increased, until the ground and even the lower parts of the tree trunks were completely covered in petals of all colours - blue, pink, yellow, white. Soon after the path opened up into a small clearing, which had a small stream running alongside a single rock. The rock was about the same size as a small car, but that wasn't the most interesting thing I saw - a small green and white Pokemon with some small red flowers behind its ears. I gasped quietly - this was a Legendary Pokemon, a Shaymin!
The Legendary looked up at us and smiled gently, but then went back to sleep. Sammy approached slowly, but I held my hand up to stop her. "Don't get too close," I said to her. "This isn't a place for humans. Let's just go."
Sammy nodded silently and we turned to leave. What an amazing place, and an amazing way to end an Expedition. I just hoped that Sammy enjoyed it as much as I did. It's just a pity that she didn't have a camera - the picture of that idyllic area would have sold for a lot.
