    OOC: Just in case 14,150 - 500 = 13,650

    I couldn't tell how exactly Ivy felt at not going to the caves, but staying in the dry heat. Her face remained passive and professional which was pretty good, I guess. Anyway, we started walking up the mountains. It wasn't too steep at first but then there was a sharp incline in altitude as we continued to trek upwards. The tough hike and the hot weather were really hard to cope with alone never mind together. Suddenly, my ranger stopped and motioned towards a whitish rock next to some clumps of ash. I relaised that it wasn't actually a rock, but a skull and was mildly horrified until I realised that it was actually the headpiece of a Cubone.

    “Hey, James, any interest in an Cubone?”

    "Nah, I think I'm gonna pass on this one. I do want to use this voice disk here," I said, pulling out the pokeplayer and the voice disk of a Drilbur I had purchased. I got ready to play it as we made to move forward. "I'll buy a Pokedoll if the Pokemon remains persistent however."

    James didn't want to catch the Cubone, and thankfully the Ground-type just laid back down in between his two rocks instead of making a fuss about it. The Trainer did want to play another disk though, so she waited for him as he pulled out the player and put in a fresh disk. The call of a Drilbur sounded. She recognized it from the run she went on in Deckbi where Chainy captured one.

    She waited a second to let the call echo through they area, and then they continued on up the rocks, the scenery never changing its rocky texture. They were getting a bit more frequent though, and the path was slowly starting to disappear as the ground was littered in more jagged rocks. She asked Haji if he wanted to return to his ball, worried about the soles of his paws, but he told her he was fine, so she let it rest at that. He would probably tell her if it became a problem. Probably.

    They continued up until a rummaging sound to her left drew her eyes. At first all she could see was a blue fin sticking out, looking like a shark was embedded in the rocks. Dirt and small rocks flew out into the air behind it, and she could hear scuffling. Then the creature lifted its head, and she got a good look at the dragon with the reddish underbelly.

    It had a couple stones in its mouth, and she watched as it found a flatter stone and dropped its catch onto it. A winged claw poked out to sift through the contents, but it wasn't satisfied and brushed the pieces off. Gabite were known to dig for gems to take back to their nest, sort of like the old dragon guarding the treasure sayings.

    It stopped what it was doing to look at them, and Ivy asked her required question. “What about a Gabite?”

    Luckily for me, the Cubone barely spared us a second glance and remained in its pitiful state just lying there. I did feel a little guilty for the poor fella but I quickly put the disk in and a growl came out of the Pokeplayer. I had never heard the sound of this Pokemon before, but it wasn't a bad one. So we continued up the mountain, heading higher and higher. The terrain seemes to level up a little bit the further we went on until it was a bit like a plain of boulders and craggy surfaces for the next stretch. I heard a scuffling sound nearby and turned to see a Gabite rummaging around in the ground, making odd grunts as it kicked up sand and stones.

    I knew that pictures of Gabite were considered quite valuable so I had my trusty camera out in no time.

    “What about a Gabite?”

    "No thanks. I'll take a picture or two though, if you don't mind."

    The Gabite turned around just as I took the pictures. Click! Click! Like the paparazzi.

    James didn't need a Gabite, but he did want to take a picture of the somewhat rare Pokémon. There was sure to be someone back at the Main Outpost that would like a copy of it, especially when it was working.

    The Dragon turned around just as James hit the button to take the picture, and the Gabite blinked at the light. It had a mildly annoyed look on its face, but soon after it just ignored them and went back to work, sifting through the rocks and dirt for the rare stones it was looking for.

    They continued on up the path, minding the sharp rocks under their boots and trying to breathe carefully as the air got thicker. She could see some falling ash a bit up ahead and knew they were getting closer to the lip of the volcano. It'd get really hot up there.

    A tiny tapping noise made Haji's ears perk up, so Ivy looked around for the source. They came around a medium-sized rock to find a small red bird tapping its beak against a rock, trying to make a dent in it. It stopped and looked at them when they were in view, and it chirped a greeting with a happy look on its face.

    “Any interest in a Torchic?” she asked.

    The Gabite seemed to ignore us after I took the picture and we got ready to head off on our way again. I could get used to this cycle of moving around the Park, taking pictures and meeting with some rare and cool Pokemon that some people may have never seen before. As we continued up the hill the ground became a little sooty and it reminded me greatly of a faraway place in Hoenn called Fallarbour, which had soot everywhere. A bit of ash landed on my head and I knew we were sure getting up high.

    I saw the Espeon turn around suddenly and I too began hearing a soft, repetitive sound. It was a little pecking sound and soon we saw the tiniest, cutest Torchic ever. I just wanted to squeeze the life out of it.

    “Any interest in a Torchic?” she asked.

    "Uh, it's so adorable and cool. But I have to pass for now. I know I'll regret this later, but hopefully she will like a Pokedoll?"

    James debated for a second, but sighed and said, “Uh, it's so adorable and cool. But I have to pass for now. I know I'll regret this later, but hopefully she will like a Pokédoll?”

    At the mention of them leaving, the Torchic got a little teary. Ivy could see it's beak wobbling a bit like it was going to cry. She hated seeing a Pokémon in distress like that. “Ah, yeah, I think you better. We don't want her to get upset.”

    James handed over the stuffed toy, and the small bird looked a little happier, though she still looked a little reluctant to let them go. She didn't fuss any further though, and they were allowed to continue on up the mountain.

    The ash began to fall harder, so she flipped up the hood on her long vest to cover herself a little bit. It wouldn't really due too much harm, but sometimes it was annoying to get out of her hair. Some of the long red stuff traveled down the front of her shoulders anyway, but at least it helped a little. The air was thicker too. She wondered how James was holding out.

    Then, Haji's voice flashed through her mind. “Look out below you,” he said, and she looked down and moved her foot just as a Diglett popped up from under the ground where she was going to land.

    Ivy stumbled and tripped forward a little, able to brace herself on one of the larger rocks so she didn't fall down. It put the small mole Pokémon in between the Trainer and Ranger.

    “Ack, here's another one,” she said. “Change your mind about Diglett?”

    "Chick?" the little Torchic chirped as it saw we were about to go, head cocked to one side. I felt so bad almost immediately but the little chick seemed a little more cheerful at the sight of the Pokedoll. The chick still seemed a little disappointed that we were going but at least it had gotten a free toy out of it. I gave the chick a big smile as we left.

    The falling ash was getting quite annoying so Ivy pulled up her hood as we walked along and I envied the hood. I would have to make do with trying to ignore the bits of ash that were getting annoyingly more common. Ivy jumped suddenly, nearly tripping and falling onto the ground. I looked down to see a disapproving look on her Espeon and another brown mole looking at me.

    “Ack, here's another one,” she said. “Change your mind about Diglett?”

    "Uh, no thank you. I guess we're gonna try flee again.. I'll buy a Pokedoll if needed, however.

    James didn't change his mind, but before she could say anything, the Diglett disappeared underground without a trace. She checked with Haji, but he felt nothing, so the mole wasn't going to try and trip them or something sneaky like that.

    They continued on, and the ash got thicker. It was coming down in snowflakes now, and it was sticking to any surface it could find. The path had disappeared completely by now, leaving them only rocks to tread on. Ivy watched Haji jump from ledge to ledge and inwardly winced. It had to be hurting his feet a little since the rock edges were unforgiving, but every time she asked he just shrugged it off. He was either tougher than she thought or was just being stubborn. He had a tendency to do that. He didn't like to make her worry.

    Then, Haji drew her attention to the ground. “Use your senses. Can you feel it?” he asked, so she focused her mind and cleared it of everything else as she concentrated.

    An energy source was traveling below them, cruising through the dirt like it was nothing. She could almost see the faint lines of energy through the soil as she used her mental abilities given to her by the link with the Espeon. The ground rumbled a little under them then, and then the energy got closer.

    A few feet away the floor burst open, sending small rock pieces and ash and dust into the air. Another mole-like Pokémon popped out of it, only this one wasn't brown. Its dark coat blended pretty well with the ash, though Ivy could see the stripes of blue. The white face and long snout was different too, as were the massive white claws.

    The Ranger recognized the Pokémon from one of her own runs. Drilbur were pretty rare, and they evolved into the much-sought-after Excadrill, fierce battlers and incredibly strong Pokémon. Chainy had captured one on that run.

    She had almost forgotten that James played a disk for it. She turned to face him. “Well, since you got the disk for it, wanna battle this Drilbur?” She didn't think he'd say no.

    OOC: I changed the journey up a little bit. Hope you didn't mind.

    Just after sayung that I wasn't particularly interested in the Diglett, it popped under ground in a very comical way, with a 'popping' sound and everything. I was pretty sure that this could have been a game that the Diglett was trying to play with us because they were very unusual Pokemon that always want to mess around and wreck havoc if you leave them be. After a few wary glances around through the fog (though the chances of me seeing him was slim to none in the dense fog), I figured that the Diglett may have actually been nice and let us go on our own. I bowed my head and then continued up the craggy, ash-ridden surface after Ivy, my Ranger. As we trekked up the mountainside I noticed that it was getting really hot again all of a sudden and looking up in the sky, I could still see the thick clouds blocking the sun's rays. I realised that this must have been because we were near the volcano's core. Togekiss didn't seem too affected by the heat as he swerved around large rocks, enjoying the new landscape.

    We continued on for a little bit before coming to a steep cliff. I stopped a few feet away and looked down at the amazing scenery below. It was the kind of thing you'd see on a really detailed postcard. The land below changed from the soft yellow sand dunes, straight through to the rocky caves, the plains in the distance and somewhere in the distance there was a crimson red line travelling the surface of one of the mountains heading straight from a steamy summit.

    "Wow," I said. "Is that a river made from lava?"

    After a few minutes of taking in the magnificent scenery we began to move on but suddenly Ivy's Espeon stopped, her red jewel glowed a darker shade and her tail pricked up suddenly. Ivy looked from her Espeon to the cracked surface ahead. The ground gave a little tremble and I almost fell over, well I lost my balance anyway. As I looked at the same spot as the purple cat Pokemon and my Ranger I saw dirt, stones and clumps of ash shoot up into the air before me. After a little hole had formed an odd looking mole Pokemon came out. It had two large arms resembling drills and I liked the way it looked. I knew after a little bit that this was a Drillbur. It was quite rare and it evolved into a very powerful Pokemon that few people had, but many wanted.

    “Well, since you got the disk for it, wanna battle this Drilbur?”

    I completely forgot that I had played the disk that had most likely attracted the cute Pokemon to this exact location. Now that I actually thought about it it could have easily been following us all along from underground and we would never know the differenece. There was probably a huge network of dark tunnels down below that Ground type Pokemon liked to thrive in. Actually, perhaps this Drillbur was the reason the somewhat-crazed Diglett came out of the ground looking started, and then shot away down in a different direction almost immediately.

    "Yeah, I think I'll go for this little fella. He sure looks like a badass," I said as he turned his attention from us to a larger rock and began to sniff it with his snout. He rubbed his claws over it delicately and I was quite curious as to what it was doing. I figured this would be the best time to think of what to use for the battle. After a koment's hesitation, I realised what it was that I wanted to do exactly.

    "Okay, Togekiss, you have served me really well so far so you should be proud of yourself," I said givng my egg Pokemon a slap on the back as he whizzed by. After a brief spell of white he was back in his ball, safe and comfortable. I knew exactly the opponent for this Drillbur, however. Slowly, while maintaining eye contact with the cute moleso it wouldn't flee, I withdrew a deep serene blue and silver-striped Pokeball. It seemed to shine a little more than usual in the harsh light coming fown from the glaring sun above.

    "Scraftinator, come on out, you little legend," I said with a proud face as a bipedal orange creature materialised before me. He had a badass red mohawk and his pants seemed to be sagging a little, giving him the uncanny resemblence to a child from the ghetto areas over in America. His large droopy eyes and general slowness didn't help him to break the stereotype, unfortunately.

    He looked up from me to the Drilburr and grinned. He sure loved to battle and Ihad a feeling he would get a really good one here since we were high up the volcano and only the toughest Pokemon could survive up here, let alone live a peaceful existence and call this absymal place their home. He shared a wary look with the smug-looking Drillbut that battlers and their Pokemon tended to do before a battle. It was a good way to acknowledge that the opponent that you were ready to fight and that you meant it in an honest and fair way, none of those cheap haxing strategies with moves like Thunder Wave, Confuse Ray and Attract, among others, that were designed to reder your Pokemon incapable of battling in cheap manners. I just did not like thosemoves and hopefully the opponent wouldn't either.

    "Alright, Scrafty, here's our first plan of action. We shall start off with a Dragon Dance and then try and smack it around with a Drain Punch. Got that?" He tilted his hod slowly in a bodding fashion while still keeping locked eyes with the opponent so he would be prepared for whatever was to come next. I liked to use this particular strategy here because Dragon Dance was a very handy move that few Pokemon could learn because it required pure concentration and focus so that the Pokemon could stimulate its senses and pay attention to the area around it and its surroundings. It also focused all its energy to make it more concentrated and harder hitting.

    Drain Punch was also a very nifty move. Not only did it deal damage but it was also a STAB move (Same Type Attack Bonus. This helps make his Fighting and Dark type moves stronger so I knew that they woupld be very helpful here), and it was also Super Effective.

    James looked like he had forgotten about the disk he played earlier, and between all the other excitement, maybe he did. He did decide to battle though. He may as well, seeing how he didn't have a full set of Pokémon to take out of the Park yet, since they were allowed to take three home. He went through all that trouble of getting a disk too. They weren't that cheap.

    He didn't want his Togekiss to battle though, so after some words of praise, he returned the fluffy white bird to his Pokéball and sent out another. A bipedal Fighting-type Pokémon appeared in his place. He had orange-tinted skin and a red Mohawk, and the yellowish clothes he wore seemed to be really baggy and in the process of falling down, like how kids on the mainland wore them.

    “Alright, Scrafty, here's our first plan of action. We shall start off with a Dragon Dance and then try and smack it around with a Drain Punch. Got that?” James said.

    Scrafty nodded and looked at the Drilbur, starting to move in specific and strange motions, channeling power into himself. Every Pokémon that learned Dragon Dance did it differently, and she liked to watch how it was done. The careful, purposeful footsteps and body motions always intrigued her. It was sort of like when a Pokémon called down the rain.

    The Drilbur decided it was going to do a dance of his own too, only this one was less refined. It dragged its claws over the rocks, and they made a sound that made her wince as the points formed. Light glinted off of them, reflecting off the sharpness. Then it waited.

    Scrafty finished his dance and took off toward the mole with his arm pulled back, prepared to strike. He did, even though the Drilbur tried to move. Scrafty wasn't really prepared for the backlash though, and Drilbur struck out with his claws. It smashed into Scrafty, sending him flying back as the mole's follow through swing broke apart the rocks next to him. Then the mole quickly backed up and struck the ground.

    Deep cracks appeared, and the ground they were standing on rumbled as a couple deep fissures appeared in the earth, making some rocks jut out farther than they had been and others to fall deep into the ravine. James and his Pokémon were going to have to be careful moving around now.

    OOC: 21,900 - 500 = 21,400 just in case

    As the Pokemon began to battle and perform their moves I realised I was having a pretty bad headache. The clouds had parted above and the heat was almost unbearable. I gulped down almost all of my refreshing water at once, still panting by the end. I realised that I couldn't stay up here any longer or I might pass out or something terrible. I couldn't do that to Scrafty or put my Ranger through the hassle of having to deal with something like that.

    "Sorry, Scrafty. But we gotta go. I know Drillbur is a tough and good opponent for you, but the heat is too hard for me to deal with right now. It's not just a case of using Rain Dance at this stage. The rain would be useless this high up and be gone in a second or two. Sorry again. If Drillbur tries to follow us then I'll buy a Pokedoll from you Ivy. I think we should probably try and leave the heat as soon as possible."

    After thinking about it for a second I realised that that sounded like I wanted to leave the Park. But I didn't just yet

    "I don't plan on leaving the Park just yet. Maybe we can head to some sheltered areas or somewhere a little cooler?"

    James had a strange look on his face, and there was sweat running on his face. He rubbed at his head, and Ivy thought the heat might be getting to him. Despite the ash falling, they were pretty high up, and the sun had been baking the mountainside all day. She was about to ask him if he was alright when he spoke up.

    “Sorry, Scrafty, but we gotta go.” Drilbur was a rare and powerful Pokémon, but it wouldn't do the Trainer any good to beat himself up trying to get it. He could always come back and use his disk another time when he was feeling better or it was cooler. “I don't plan on leaving the Park just yet,” he said to her then. “Maybe we can head to some sheltered areas or somewhere a little cooler?”

    She nodded. “Absolutely. I know a few spots we can go. We just have to take care of the Drilbur first.”

    On that note, she started to stray off the path to the right, into the rocks. The Drilbur protested though, calling out angrily and hitting one of the rocks next to him, breaking it into pieces. He was already into the battle zone and didn't want to stop. It'd be dangerous to try and travel over the rocks if he tried to follow them. At James' instruction, she threw a doll to it, and then the small Ground-type finally cooled his battle rage.

    They got over the rocks carefully, and Ivy led them over to hug the mountainside. Soon, juts of rock stuck out above them, shading the makeshift path they walked on. She hoped it was helping a little. Deckbi was pretty hot no matter where you went, but at least the sun wasn't beating on them. She thought maybe they could get to the caves. There were a few tunnels she knew that led back toward the gate if the Trainer was starting to feel weary. One of the entrances wasn't too far from here...

    A burst of heat in front of her made her slide to a stop. Then something exploded, scattering a dust cloud onto their path and flinging chips of rock everywhere. There was a large boulder in the way, so it was like they were in a partial tunnel under the shelf. She edged around it carefully to take a look at what was going on, and she came face to face with a giant Fire-type Pokémon.

    It had flaming patches on its shoulders, tail, and the top of its head, and the whole thing was red and yellow. It stood on two legs, and two huge cannons made up its arms. “Hi there,” she said to it, and it paused in its actions to nod at her. Magmortar were a powerful Pokémon. It was an evolution of the Magby they had ran into earlier.

    This was seemed to be having target practice. She waved James over as it picked up a rock in one hand and flung it into the air only to bring up the opposite arm and blast it with a fireball. An interesting way to train.

    “Want to battle this Magmortar?” she asked.

    Ivy didn't seem to mind all that much but the Drillbur threw a mini tantrum when it lost out on a battle. It took the Pokedoll ungraciously and I was almost glad this guy wouldn't be joining our group. It tore the poor Clefairy to shreds mercilessly and gave a horrific laugh. As we made for the shelter of some cliff edges jutting out above I began to feel a bit better but that wasn't all, there were loud booming sounds like explosions going off nearby. We rounded a corner and we were inches away from a fearsome-looking Magmortar. Its body was emblazoned with flame patterns and tribal marks it may have gotten for being the leader, which is quite impressive.

    "Hi there," Ivy said and received a nod of greeting from the training Magmortar.

    I whipped out my camera and quickly took a pic or two of the rare Pokemon.

    James didn't want to battle the Magmortar, but he did take out a camera and take a picture of the impressive sight. The large Fire-type only seemed mildly amused by the flash, and she was glad it didn't decide to blast them into ashes with its cannons. Instead, it decided it had enough training for the day and moved on down the mountain side. It might have a cave dwelling there or something.

    They continued on along the mountain, and she noticed that the path was a little smoother than the rest of the rocky hill. Something might've been traveling on it lately, but she didn't know what it was. Could be an Onix or something. Either way, it made it easier for them to walk. That was good, since their shaded cover stopped for a moment, cloaking them in sunlight. It wasn't as bright though, as some clouds were starting to fill the sky. Maybe it would rain, she thought with a sarcastic tone.

    A dark shadow swooped over them then, causing the group to stop and look up. A giant dragon landed on a ledge above them, and the sun glinted off its sleek blue body. Crystal-like spikes decorated it, and its tail swayed absently behind it. “Wow, it's Dialga. Want to take a picture of that one?” she asked.

    After I took a few quick pics of the Magmortar it turned around, but not before I caught a smirk from it, as it began to walk down the other side of the mountain. For a split moment the shade above us disappeared and the glaring sun was right in our faces once more. I grimaced until we were covered by a huge shadow for a second. Then there was a thud from a ledge nearby as a Legendary Pokemon, Dialga I believe, landed down on it. Its body was covered in blue metal and large pointed spikes. It stood there before as and I couldn't believe my eyes seeing the bring of time stand there before us and looking at us. However, I knew I could never catch this Pokemon as it was against Park rules to attempt and catch a Legendary Pokemon.

    “Wow, it's Dialga. Want to take a picture of that one?” Ivy asked.

    But I had had the same thought and already was trying to get a good picture of the Dialga. It was hard because of the glaring light so I moved a little closer, and stooped down beside some smaller boulders, hopefully providing some cover from the glaring light and allowing a good picture of the Dialga. Although the beast wasn't looking I could sense it knew exactly how close I was soI took the pictures carefully. I didn't wan't to startle it away as it was important for us Rangers and trainers to keep their distance around these cool Pokemon, unfortunately.

    "I think I've got a few snaps that will sell nicely. Shall we move on under these ledges?
