More food

– And where are your manners? The woman at the table, Wally’s aunt I presumed, got up and was yelling at her husband. – The poor thing must be hungry, why don’t you eat something before going to meet Wally? She motioned for me to sit down and eat something but I politely declined, saying…

Settle in

I left the house feeling bloated from all the food the woman forced on me. It was all delicious but it was still a lot and I needed to walk it off. The night air was as scented and clear as during the day, but the aromas were different. Fireflies could be seen flying through…

Friendship levels

Now what was the name of Wally’s aunt and uncle? There were two houses with name signs by the doors. The one to the left said “Woodland”, might as well be the last name. I knocked on the door. – Yes? Come in! It’s unlocked. The door slowly opened while its hinges squeaked. – Come…

Ideal conditions

The sun was setting and not too far from were I was standing, I could see a young man walking with his eyes closed. He took a few steps, stopped, opened his arms and eyes for a moment and then resumed his walk. I approached him and asked if everything was okay. – Hello friend!…

Twice the tale, twice the fate

– Come closer friend. Come to us. I looked around, trying to find the source of this voice but there was not a single person around… and yet I found myself motivated to head towards the houses. -Yes, this way. Come to us. The voice seems to originate from up ahead. I hastened my pace…

Inspiring need

As I turned around and headed towards the nearby houses, there was a woman, a very busy-looking woman heading towards the middle of town. Two bags in her hands, one of them releasing a bit of steam. She stumbled and for a moment semed to drop the cargo but quickly recovered. I offered some help….

How about no…

I went to the front of the battle tent and gazed upon its intricate patterns and bright colours, none of which were appealing to me… at all. There was a sign outside: “Battle Tent Verdanturf Site – Feast Your Eyes on Battles”. I did not want to feast my eyes and I definitely did not…

An impending debut

I considered about investigating the cave on this side but thought it best to save the expedition for last, and so, I made my way back to the center of the city, passing by the massive orange dome structure, also known as the battle tent. A man was leaning against it, juggling two pokéballs in…

Tunnel guard

– Are you going into the tunnel mister? A small girl was sitting next to the tunnel entrance, a big red ribbon on her head. – You can go in but you have to be careful. My daddy said so. I smiled at her and asked jokingly asked if she was guarding the entrance. –…

The other side

The battle tent was a big blur against the side of the nearby mountain, its bright colours inviting trainers to go in and face the challenge but I wanted none of it. I passed by it and heade straight towards a large opening on the mountain face. A small sign was just outside of it:…

Acquire

I inspected the stands, perusing the various merchandise, much of which was advertised as being of natural provenance, without any artificial influence and as far as I could see everything did indeed look fresh and appealing, much more than I had seen in any other markets. My steps brought me full circle, back to the…

Daring grey

– Excuse me sonny… can you help me? An elderly woman was beckoning me. Grey hair tightly spun in a bun and a visible hunch which she tried to correct by holding her hands behind her back. – I’m searching for strategy guides on the battle tent but I can’t seem to find them. I…
