New wares

This town was completely different from the previous one. Everything seemed to run a slower, more relaxed, and the happiness wasn’t faked, the smiles each person shared lit up their face and made one feel warm. This was a happy place. My reserves of pokéballs were dwindling and I found myself heading towards the local…

Believer

– He is quite the inspiring person isn’t he? An older man in a brown suit approached me as I made my way back to the entrance. – He spends most of his time here, giving advice to young trainers like yourself, and guidance for those he finds lost. This man was nothing like the…

Fresh center

The pokécenter in Verdanturf was a relief to the senses. No overhwelming smells, sounds or lights, just a serene atmosphere and a very light ambient music. The nurse had a wide smile on her face and there were a few people standing around. One of them was even meditating and as I looked closer, I…

Verdanturf

The wind blew colder and had a particular scent to it. There was no longer any road to step on, the ground was now covered in a mantle of grass, with some spots still wet with dew even though we were a few hours into the afternoon. The grass had different heights and colouring, intentionally…

Pick up

I made my way back to mauville center, spending as little time as I could, just enough to recover my pokémon and make room for the one the other girl was previously offering me. No one seemed to notice me going in or out of town and soon enough I was back by the flower…

Second serving

A new pokémon entered the fray, a small, nimble, gray cat pokémon that the pokénav identified as glameow. The database pointed out that the type in play was not advantageous for me, and so I swapped my zorua out for riolu. – Ooooh! That’s also a good one. I didn’t see that one earlier. My…

Desserts

I sat down against a nearby fence and sated my hunger. My pokémon also came out of their balls, stretching their legs and nibbling on on the several plates I had laid out for them. – That’s quite a team you have with you. There’s even some of them that I didn’t know existed. A…

Careful labour

I backed up until I was back near the road. My eyesight fixed on the tree line, waiting for those two orbs to reappear. – There’s no use in searching mister. If it’s not there, you won’t find it. There was a small girl behind me, leaning against the white fence, het hair braided in…

Fields of petals

The flower fields were nearby and simply overwhelming, both in beauty and perfume. I was more than happy that I did not suffer from allergies since the air was not clear but full of pollen and loose petals. There was a small path near the edge, along the forest border, just wide enough for a…

Winged beauty

Another ball flew through the air and when it opened, I readied myself for another burst of colour but that did not happen. – Go my beauty!! Amaze them with your looks!! My opponent kept looking up and it was only then that I saw the ball which I had assumed to be a pokéball….

Dust in the air

– No, no… this just won’t do. Maybe this one? The sound came from the side of the road, near some tall grass. – Bah! Still not good. I got closer, and could see a crouching man grabbing at the ground, searching for something. He lost balance as I got closer and I offered some…

The path ahead

The main road was nearby and I found myself back on it. Just me and the open road. A sign pointed my way to Verdanturf town, supposedly not that far. I was enjoying the trip, even with all the weird encoutners, but I couldn’t let myself forget the real reason I was going this way….
