I was flying around the Ranger Outpost, not a care in the world. Well, aside from falling off my Skarmory, that is. Since Gliscor was never willing to fly me around, I flew on my Skarmory instead. Gliscor glided around, we swooped and dove. Fun stuff, like that.
Then my phone rang. It startled me, causing me to lose my grip on my steely steed's feathers. I fell from several hundred feet in the air, plummeting to my doom on the Ranger Outpost's asphalt parking lot.
Luckily, Gliscor caught me. His powerful tail around my waist, he set me down on the grass between the Outpost and the parking lot. With a thud. Not quite the softest landing, but better than what it would have been.
Gliscor gave me what could be a glare or an amused look. I wasn't quite sure, it could've been either. He was weird that way.
"Strong signal," I muttered, then answered the call.
It was my boss, Chainy. Thankfully, he hadn't seen the stunt I had just pulled. The last thing that I wanted was for him to have seen me free fall like that. Instead, he gave me much better news.
"We have another Trainer for you to take through the park," he told me. "Through Mt Deckbi."
"I'm on it," I replied.
Almost as soon as I had said it, the data flooded into my phone. The Trainer's picture, his Pokemon, his shoe size... Everything I wanted and most of what I didn't want to know. Oh the wonders of smart phones.
I recalled Skarmory into it's Pokeball and walked into the Outpost with that fake casualness you get after doing something that you hope nobody noticed. Gliscor followed me looking smug.
The receptionist didn't give any clue that she had, but instead she pointed to the guy sitting on one of the lobby chairs. Oh hey, he was here already. No wonder Chainy had been so quick to send me his info.
I pushed up my orange-tinted flight goggles to get a better look at him. Just like the picture. Huh.
"Hey!" I called out somewhat quietly, as not to completely irritate the receptionist. "You ready to head to Deckbi?"
