    Summer.

    The seasons had interminably rolled by, and once more Argent was looking through the windows of the office in which he worked at a bright new day. The sun cast warm rays to the ground, illuminating everything it fell upon. Since the now-hot climate also heated up the office, the rangers were doing their best to stop themselves from becoming too hot. The windows were open, and most desks now had fans on them, blasting cool air at those who sat at them. Argent, that day, had managed to get himself to the Great Lakes' outpost. The mixed waters there mostly seemed to generate a breeze of some nature, and the cool temperature -- not to mention the largely refreshing scent -- made the Great Lakes one of the best areas to work near during the summer. Some of Argent's colleagues had even gone so far as to do their paperwork outside, obviously not able to tolerate the increasing warmth indoors. Argent, content with his fan, as well as the idly flapping tail of his lifelong companion, a Chimecho, simply sat at his desk. He was -- oddly enough -- out of paperwork to complete. He had a natural tendency towards hard work, and so he was not as burdened with work as his other colleagues were, as he finished everything he was given routinely and with equal amounts of effort.

    He was listlessly surfing the internet to pass the time. However, one can only do so for so long before becoming extremely bored. In time, even the patient Argent had to admit that sitting in front of a computer screen on such a good day was really a waste -- not to mention terribly languorous. A run would be one of the best ways to spend that day. So, logging on to the 'ranger website', as he liked to call it, he swiftly found a run for the Great Lakes. He knew that the National Park would be in a little higher demand that day, for the good weather was always going to bring more people outside. He quickly accepted the run, asked for by one Garth Crysis. At first, Argent thought that the forename was a misspelling of 'Gareth', but he supposed that parents these days tried to be as creative as they could with names, which resulted in unfortunate children called ridiculous things. Argent knew that his name was outlandish, but he was thankful that his parents had had the foresight not to call him something like 'Peaches' or 'Spaceboy'. That would have gained him an immense amount of teasing in earlier life. Fortunately, his name was not as ridiculous as some. After musing a little about the name, he decided that it was probably time to change, pack a few things and then leave before his trainer got there.

    He changed into a pair of his 'jammers', as he liked to call them, and swapped his black shirt for a light jacket. His sandals didn't need changing. Slinging a satchel over his shoulder, he slowly drifted outside, closely followed by Chimey. He decided it would be best to wait at the gate to the Outer Lakes, which sat in front of a ramp that slowly declined into the water. Leaning against the gate, he prepared himself for a wait before Garth came. It occurred to him that he hadn't got a Water-type Pokémon with him to swim with, but that really wasn't too much of a problem. He gave a sidelong glance to Chimey, who returned his look with a wary gaze.

    Please, Chimey. It's not like I'm going to punch you, Argent told her plaintively.

    Then what do you want? she asked in reply. She was a tiny Pokémon of a pale blue-and-red colouring. Her body -- or head, Argent wasn't sure which -- was a spherical shape, and three stubby protrusions that seemed to be arms stuck out of it. Her eyes were a golden yellow, and she had some sort of growth on her head that Argent couldn't really identify. Her tail drifted around involuntarily in the light breeze, causing a faint tinkling to be emitted from her.

    Could you see if Assan would get here? Argent asked of her. Assan, a Floatzel, tended to wander on occasion, and Argent didn't try to restrain that. He just wished that the Water-type wouldn't go so far away.

    I made sure that I had everything I needed and I headed for the Great Lakes. This would be my third there if my memory was correct. It was one of the two places I had visited in the National Park, the other being Meteor Valley for a special event. I was trying collect all of the Water Pokemon outside of legends so it made sense to head to the Lakes.

    My last trip had been a good one. Not only had I obtained five grand in pictures, I got some really good Pokemon, especially one I really wanted. I wasn’t sure what I would find for this trip, but I was prepared for anything that would come my way. I even bought some new park items.

    When I got to the Great Lakes I found my ranger waiting there, one Argent Silverswift. I exchanged a greeting with the young man and waited to enter the park.

    It wasn't long before Argent spotted the trainer he was to be taking through -- Garth Crysis. He seemed to be a fairly young man, and Argent at least hoped they'd get on reasonably well. He'd been in awkward situations before when the ranger-trainer relationship hadn't worked out, and that made doing his job quite hard. Argent could tell that Garth seemed to be at least a marginally amicable sort of person, because as soon as he came over, he wasted no time in exchanging a greeting with Argent.

    "Oh, hello. Garth, I presume?" Argent asked once the trainer approached. He extended a hand and shook Garth's, before withdrawing it once more. "All right. I'm sure you're a regular to this area -- well, I was looking over your files, anyway, and you seem to be -- so you'll know what's expected of you while you're here. I'm sure you'll be fine, though. Come on with me, and we'll start exploring the Great Lakes, yeah?" Argent flashed Garth an encouraging grin before turning his back on the trainer in order to unlock the gate. After pulling it open, he ushered Garth through gently, closing and locking the gate to the area once they were both on that slope that descended into the water. At the very end of the run-off point, a familiar orange creature was treading water, and Argent smiled brightly -- it seemed Assan had responded to Chimey's summons after all. Argent led Garth down to the edge of the freshwater lake they were about to enter, feeling the breeze that was stirred above the lake, but not much troubled by it due to the heat of the day otherwise.

    Argent slunk into the water almost immediately, and clung to Assan, who supported him in the water easily. Then he swam off with Assan, Chimey resting herself on the Floatzel's back as they swam, leading Garth closely through the water. [OOC: WITH WHATEVER SORT OF THING YOU WANT]

    After a little while of swimming, they came near a sandbank, with a seal Pokémon of some description lazing upon the presumably warm sand. Its eyes were closed in what seemed to be pleasure, and Argent chuckled at how it wriggled around on the sand to try and get more of the warmth. This Dewgong seemed to be a rather playful creature, and whenever it hit a particularly hot patch, it gave out a joyous barking noise.

    Aww, that's adorable, Argent noted to Chimey. Then, out loud, he asked Garth, "Hey, do you want to catch this Dewgong?"

    I exchanged greetings with Argent and headed into the park with him. Argent set off for the first lake in the area, where a Floatzel seemed to be waiting for him to show up. As Argent climbed on the back of his Pokemon, I called forth my Starmie and did the same.

    Argent headed for the middle of the lake and I followed closely behind. We had been traveling for a while without spotting a Pokemon and both myself and Starmie were becoming restless. We finally reached a sandbar and spotted our first Pokemon basking in the sun on the sand.

    “Hey, do you want to catch this Dewgong,” Argent called out to me.

    “No thanks. Let’s leave it be. If it wants to follow us I have a Pokedoll we can use.”

    OOC: Sorry this took so long. The inactivity spike meant there weren't many rangers around to see an escape roll, and then I finally got Bumblebee to watch one yesterday, but he still hasn't posted. :< Anyway, I decided I wouldn't bother waiting. Keep your Pokédoll; the escape worked.

    "No thanks," Garth replied. "Let's leave it be. If it wants to follow us, I have a Pokédoll we can use."

    Argent nodded in response, before looking towards the Dewgong once more. It didn't really seem to be paying any attention to the mixed party that was so close by, so Argent thought he could probably slip them all away from the Dewgong -- the relaxed creature didn't seem to be interested in having a battle, anyway. Deciding that the Pokémon was best left to its own devices, Argent veered Assan away from the sandbank, and directed him onwards. Assan's two tails began to spin in propeller motion, and, with a lazy kick from time to time, the orange creature sliced swiftly through the still water, sending ripples out from around them. They faded into the far distance as they travelled away in large arcs. Chimey relocated herself to the top of Assan's head, but the Sea Weasel Pokémon didn't seem to mind all that much. Argent simply smiled at the quiet atmosphere on a day with such good weather. With the sun blazing overhead, but a light breeze blowing at them, the temperature was just right. The pure blue of the sky seemed to fill Argent with a probably unreasonable happiness, and the still water was cool enough to moderate the temperature caused by their exertions.

    After a good many moments, Assan abruptly stopped, and Argent called for Garth and his Starmie to halt. As the party stopped, Assan pointed at something that was circling them in the water. As the shape came to a stop, a head emerged from the water, peeping at Argent curiously. The face was cream in colour, and black eyes that shone like pebbles gazed into Argent's own cool cornflower blue. It had eyebrows that curved up and into the centre of what seemed to be its forehead, and a meek smile stretched across its face. It seemed to have spherical 'speakers' of sorts on each side of its head, the top part of each being a light blue. Although it was underwater, Argent saw a glimpse of the tadpole-like tail that smacked the surface of the water occasionally.

    "T-Tympole!" it cried. Argent gave it an encouraging smile.

    "Interested in a Tympole?" he asked over his shoulder.

    After the Dewgong drifted away from us, not interested in the slightest, Argent and his Floatzel headed in a different direction. We swam along for some time before Argent passed down a signal to halt.

    I was curious to see if we had run into a Pokemon, and sure enough we had. It resembled a tadpole, only it more of a head than a body, and it was larger than a normal tadpole would be. It had a creamy face with large eyes and mouth. The face was ringed with a rich earthy brown, and the rest of it was aqua blue, which allowed it to blend in with the bottom of the lakes, rivers, and seas.

    The Pokemon was a Tympole, a Water type that would evolve into Seismitoad, a strong Water and Ground type. While I didn’t want to use Seismitoad in my gym because Swampert was a better option, it was a decent enough Water Pokemon to have, not to mention that I wanted all Water Pokemon and this was one I had been searching for lately.

    I pulled out my Pokedex and aimed it at Tympole. As the information scrolled across the screen and looked at the important points. The first thing was that it was only a Water type Pokemon right now, it wouldn’t become a Ground type until it evolved into Palpitoad.

    It’s abilities were also a point of concern. It’s most common ability was Swift Swim, which allowed it to be faster in times of rain. This meant that I had to be careful about allowing any Pokemon to use Rain Dance because that could tip the battle in its favor. Its second ability was that of Hydration, which allowed it to heal any status aliments during rain. The good thing about this was that I could cover both abilities because they both relied on Rain Dance. It more rare ability was Water Absorb, which allowed it to heal from any Water attacks. This one didn’t bother me because I didn’t plan on using any Water attacks against this Pokemon.

    Next, I looked at its moves. It didn’t know that many level up moves, and its movepool of extra moves wasn’t that large. That was a good thing when battling wild Pokemon, since those tended to be moves that could hurt in a variety of ways. It did however know Rain Dance by level up, meaning that I would have to watch for that move and be able to counter it or reverse it with any Pokemon I chose to sent out.

    I was using Starmie as my Pokemon using Surf, so that was out, leaving Toxicroak, Whimsicott, and Rotom-Wash. Despite being a frog, Toxicroak would have a harder time in this much water than the Tympole, especially since most of his attacks wouldn’t work in water. I also didn’t want to use Rotom-Wash because it was a pretty powerful Pokemon, and I would have to watch my moves very careful if I sent it out.

    That left Whimsicott, not a bad choice because it was fast, plus could counter any moves by the Tympole. I reached for his Pokedoll and called out the green, brown and white Pokemon. Whimsicott fluffed up his cotton around his body and turned to me, flashing a smile that promised trouble later on, he didn’t like being in his Pokeball.

    “I know, but first we must catch this Tympole. Why don’t you start this battle off with Light Screen and follow that up with Stun Spore?”

    I had decided not to use attacking moves for a couple different reasons. The first being that I wanted to limit the damage to Whimsicott, and Light Screen would halve special damage while the Stun Spore provided a chance to paralyze the Pokemon, not allowing it to attack. The second reason was that Stun Spore had the additional benefit to aid my capture of the Tympole when the time came.

    Whimsicott would start with Light Screen, a Psychic barrier put up by Whimsicott. Whimsicott was a Grass Pokemon, not a Psychic Pokemon, but like most Pokemon he did have some Psychic ability, and Light Screen was a pretty simple move. All he would have to do is focus his mind and imagine the invisible barrier around him to create the Light Screen.

    The Stun Spore wasn’t that harder either. Grass type Pokemon often produced spores inside their body for both attack and defense, just like plants. Pokemon could use these spores in whatever manner they wished, they just had to call them up. I had seen Whimsicott use this move once before. He would go near the Tympole and start to shake his body, lifting the spores from his body and filling the air with them. The spores appeared as a fine yellow dust, and if you breathed it in then you would have paralysis. The only problem was that Stun Spore was a move that missed fairly often, I hoped this time it would hit.

    I was pretty excited this day. I was going to my favorite area of the National Park, the Great Lakes. The name gave the Pokemon away, this place was filled to the brink with Water types. If a Water type existed, it could be found in the Lakes with a few exceptions. I had been there more than a few times already, and I had took a couple trainers through, and with each run coming back fruitful.

    Because of the great amount of Pokemon there it sometimes made it harder to find a specific Pokemon, but the diversity among the Pokemon made up for it in someway. My last trip was pretty decent, but I wound up only leaving with three Pokemon instead of my normal four, but that was a risk one took when going to any area of the Park.

    A plus to taking this run was that I knew the person who I would be taking, so it would be a fairly easy run for me as he knew almost everything there was to know.

    I finished strapping on my gear and stepped into the teleporter. When i arrived at the Lakes a moment later I breathed in deep, drawing in that water smell. Cameron wasn’t there so I leaned my back against the wall around the Park and pulled a web game I was developing.

    @AmericanTreeFrog

    My brothers and I had all been taking turns going into the Park. More specifically, the Great Lakes. We were in constant search for the legendary Pokemon called Phione. We've been to the lakes at least eight or more times already, I had lost count after five and I wasn't sure how many more times we'd have to come here before one actually showed up. I figured we were just unlucky, either that, or Phione was just a legend here and resided somewhere else in the world. There were several Phione spotted all around this planet, but we think this is where they come often, at least that is what the research team I talked to said. As of now, I wasn't really sure if they were right, but since I had no other leads, and because of how easy it would be to continue looking here because of my job, I just kept on going.

    I grabbed a Pokeball and headed out to meet Shadow and Mindbender at the lakes. I just had to stop by Leo's office and pick up Cybershock, his Porygon-Z. I picked up my backpack of supplies and pulled out the Masterball we had been given a while back. I then walked over to Leo's office. Without even looking, he tossed over the Pokeball containing Cybershock.

    "Good luck out there." He said to me.

    "Ha, yea, I'll need it." I said to him as I headed for the door. m

    -

    The walk to the lakes didn't take long since it was pretty close to the Rangers headquarters. Mindbender and Shadow were already there waiting. Shadow had grown used to this place and was no longer afraid of it like he was the first time he came here. He even went into the water last time, it was quite the improvement. Shadow and Mindbender made their way over towards me, and then we located our Ranger.

    "Hey, good to see you again Gaius." I said to him. I was ready whenever he was.

    “Hey, good to see you again, Gaius,” Cameron said, walking over to me. I shook his hand and returned his greeting. The three brothers were a common sight around the National Park, visiting all the other areas and helping others by being rangers.

    I had taken one of them through the Great Lakes already, and it had turned out to be a decent run for him, but he hadn’t found the ultra-rare Phione that they had been looking for. It just happened to be a Pokemon I was looking for also, so it was a race to see who could find the Pokemon first.

    I wasted no time with preamble and logged us both into the system. The large gates swung open and I led us inside. I saw a storm brewing in the distance over Meteor Valley and knew that it would be here soon. Either we would get caught in it or not. I didn’t think we had much time though because I could already feel a strong breeze. It was usually windy here in the Lakes, but it was now more so.

    I immediately headed for the first lake, one directly ahead of us and up the path. It was by far the largest lake in the area and was known to hold a rare Pokemon or two. I figured we would stop around there for a bit then head for the lakes further out, where most of the rare Pokemon hid out.

    We had just got close enough to see the lake when I spotted a Pokemon. It had a long, sinuous body, it was pink, and had a cream underbelly. It was the very rare Milotic. Milotic were not a particular powerful Pokemon stats wise, but it had high defenses and possessed a solid number of moves. I was sure Cameron and his brothers already had one, but you could never tell if they wanted another.

    “You want to add another Milotic?” I asked the man by my side.

    "I am very tempted to capture this Pokemon here, but no. As beautiful as this Pokemon is, it just isn't on my list of things to capture. Plus, we already have one." I said to Gaius. "Instead, let me take a picture of this Milotic so that I can at least get some cash out of this." I reached into my backpack and pulled out a small digital camera with a small lens. I raised my device and clicked on the button and a white light flashed. Milotic was truly and elegant Pokemon, I am very happy with the one I have, which is doing well at the Sootopolis City Gym.

    "I am ready to move on whenever you are, Gauis." I said to him. "Lead the way."

    @AmericanTreeFrog;
    OOC: Again, really sorry. Between being sick (which I still am ;_;) and that extended trip away... well, whatever. Gender?

    Once Argent had pointed out the Tympole to Garth, the trainer pulled out a small, handheld device. Lifting it up slightly, he aligned the back of it with Tympole, and Argent recognised the gadget as a Pokédex. It was a great piece of technology to have on hand, as it had all the information one would need at a glance. Garth seemed engrossed with the device for a while, and Argent realised that this trainer was a little bit of a strategist, by the looks of things. Argent knew he had only a few Pokémon at his disposal, and Starmie, one of the four Garth had brought, was already out of the question -- Garth was using that Pokémon for travelling at that time. That left his Toxicroak, Whimsicott and Rotom-Wash. Argent didn't feel that Toxicroak was really a strong swimmer, and, if he remembered correctly, the Poison- and Fighting-type didn't have many moves that would function well in water.

    Rotom-Wash was a good option, although perhaps a little too strong for the small Tympole. Only its evolutions came with the Ground-type that would grant it immunity to the stinging pain of Electric-type attacks. As it was, Tympole was quite a weak Pokémon, and if Garth unleashed his Rotom on the creature, the tadpole would be easily overpowered, so he would have to watch himself. Whimsicott was just as equal a threat to the Tympole, if not more -- powerful Grass-type moves would dent the Water-type quite a bit, and the Ground-typing of its evolutions would cause Whimsicott to cause even more damage. However, the cotton-soft Pokémon was not, generally speaking, one of brute force, but damaged opponents in more indirect ways. Though the methods to using Whimsicott correctly were often long and drawn-out, the results were quite satisying... most of the time.

    Whimsicott was his choice. Garth sent out the fluffy Pokémon after a while of deliberating, and the green, white and beige creature puffed a little, turning to Garth. Argent saw the Pokémon flash a not entirely friendly smile at his trainer... perhaps there was some sort of strife between them. Whatever it was, Argent wasn't going to pry.

    "I know," said Garth, "but first we must catch this Pokémon. Why don’t you start this battle off with Light Screen, and follow that up with Stun Spore?"

    Not a bad place to start, Argent supposed. Whimsicott was quite fast indeed, and Prankster would allow him to pull both of these moves off swiftly. He danced lightly across the water, seemingly studying the Tympole. He then lifted his stubby arms up, stretching them out on either side of his body. He closed his eyes for a moment, and then, slowly but surely, a dome of translucent pink energy enfolded him -- Light Screen, a move designed to halve the damage taken from any special attack. Light Screen was a very potent move when used against Tympole, for almost its entire movepool consisted of moves reliant on its special attack. Tympole saw that its only chance would be to utilise the very few physical moves at its disposal. It glared towards the Whimsicott, and its anger seemed to actually envelop its body in some sort of orange aura. With a powerful flip of its tail, the Tympole flung itself from the water, tumbling through the air to bring its tail down upon Loki the Whimsicott. The tadpole's tail did strike its mark, and Whimsicott reeled from the pain of Tympole's Facade.

    Shortly after, however, the mass of fluff that surrounded Whimsicott's body glowed momentarily, and a few spores were ejected from it. They bypassed the Light Screen barrier, and they were directed straight at Tympole. The spores found their target easily enough, and released a paralytic charge into the Tadpole Pokémon. Unfortunately for the poor creature, it found itself slowed by the electrical charge that had been released into its body, but was not totally immobile yet. It flapped its tail a little slowly, kicking up water droplets around itself. A small pulse was emitted from the Pokémon, and the water droplets clashed into each other to form rings that surrounded the Tympole, and showed no promise of going away anytime soon -- Aqua Ring.

    Argent bit his lip quietly.

    Due to its Prankster Ability Whimsicott was able to throw up the pink Light Screen in only seconds. But in those same seconds the Tympole had decided to launch an attack at Whimsicott. The soon-to-be frog Pokemon used its tail to fling itself in the air, to come right down upon Loki.

    While not a physically strong Pokemon, Tympole’s tail was used to propel it throughout the water, meaning that it possessed some strong muscles in the tail. It used that tail to hammer Loki, causing him to reel back from the pain, but not enough for Loki to be too inhibited by the attack.

    Loki recovered almost immediately from the Facade move Tympole had unleashed on him. He shook his fluffy exterior and the spores that would complete Stun Spore came loose. The spores drifted in the wind towards Tympole, where they eventually hit him.

    The Tympole seemed dismayed by the Stun Spore move, mostly because of the loss of speed, but it seemed to take the measure in stride as it started to splash around water. I wondered what the Pokemon was doing, until I noticed a small pulse coming from the much smaller Pokemon. While I wasn’t sure which attack the Tympole had just used, i could place a guess that it was Aqua Ring, a move that healed six point two-five percent of health every turn. It was a small amount, but over the course of a battle it could slightly influence the results.

    It wasn’t that big a hurdle though, by the Tympole using Aqua Ring it had actually opened a move I was reluctant to use because of the risk involved, but the Aqua Ring would help mitigate that risk now. I had a couple moves in mind that might work here.

    First and foremost, Whimsicott wasn’t a Pokemon that attacked very much, as such it didn’t have as many attacking moves as a Pokemon like Sceptile. But the species did know a fair number of non-attacking moves, which was what made it having Prankster a good thing. While I wanted to use an attacking move, I decided to go with something else instead.

    “Loki, go with an Encore and follow that up with your Leech Seed attack.”

    By Tympole using the move Aqua Ring it had opened itself up to both attacks that I wanted to us. The Encore would force it to use Aqua Ring for a total of three turns, while the Leech Seed continually sapped health and gave it to my Whimsicott. There was a chance of Tympole countering the Encore with a move like Protect or Detect, but I was in a good position no matter what.

    As for the Leech Seed, that was a move that had a higher chance of going wrong, but I could always use it again if I wanted to counter the Aqua Ring and continued to gain health. Whimsicott would of course start with the Encore, which was essentially convincing the opposing Pokemon to continue to use the move. Pokemon did tend to resist this sort of thing, so the Encore was powered by the subtle power of Psychic energy. It was a suggestion with power behind it, making it like a compulsion to the opposing Pokemon.

    Leech Seed was a move that came from a seed. Whimsicott would fire a seed at Tympole, and if it connected a web of vines would sprout and grow around the body of Tympole. These vines would latch onto and sap life from the Tympole, and transfer it to Whimsicott, doing damage and healing my Pokemon at the same time.

    “I’m very tempted to capture this Pokemon, here, but no,” Cameron responded, looking at the majestic Pokemon intently. “As beautiful as this Pokemon is, it just isn’t on my list of things to capture. Plus, we already have one. Instead, let me take a picture of this Milotic so that I can at least get some cash out of this.” He pulled out the Digital Camera exclusive to the National Park and snapped a quick picture of the Pokemon.

    Milotic’s head whipped around at the flash and stared at us for a heartbeat. Quick as could be, the Pokemon dived underwater and disappeared, as all Pokemon did when they got their picture taken.

    “I am ready to move on whenever you are,” Cameron said as he stowed his camera. “Lead the way.”

    I continued to walk down the path leading to the lake and stopped at its shores. Usually I had trainers walk around it, but for some reason I felt like we should go out on its waters. I called forth my Swampert and climbed on his back. As Cameron got ready to follow behind me, I started to get Swampert moving. Before we could get very far though two Pokemon surfaced.

    One was a Pokemon that sort of looked like a Marshtomp and otter mix, while the other looked like a small sea turtle. They were Dewott and Tirtouga, both Water Pokemon, with one being part Rock typed.

    “You want either of these?” I called back to Cameron.

    “You want either of these?” Ranger Gaius asked me. I didn't even have to think about this one. I wasn't interested in Dewott and as much as I wanted to get a Tirtouga for my basics collection, I did not want to battle this one at this moment. Anyways, I knew of an easier way to obtain one.

    "No thanks, sir." I said to him, pulling out a Pokedoll as I did. "I feel quite certain that I'll be needing this." and then I placed the Pokedoll on the ground. I couldn't remember if one doll had the power to make two Pokemon go away, but I sure hoped so because I didn't want to waste two dolls on them.
