July 19 (26yo)
Ogi City, Yellow Rock Isle, Whirl Archipelago, Johto
Chu the Pichu, Mudster the Swampert, Iwa the Wishiwashi, Ludwig the Ludicolo, Aero the Aerodactyl, Brute Tooth the Barraskewda
: Savannah and Zap Zap the Shinx (Grand Master Koop), Esther, Pari the Munna, and Pyrrha the Jangmo-o (kyuukestu), Aldon and Skol the Slowpoke (ThAtGuY101), Reina (Hecotoro), Desmond and Politoed (Godjacob), Eveline, Gene, Sticky Fingers the Octillery, and Sam the Phantump (GQuasch)
Wow, everyone was talking to her. Well, except for Desmond, thankfully. Naka did her best to listen and keep tabs on what everyone had said, wanting to go over everyone's points. Although, all this attention was slowly making her more and more flustered. No no, she was able to teach a bunch of kids ten years ago, this should be fine. They were all younger than her anyway, so she took a deep breath, calming her nerves. Even her Pichu grew nervous, so Naka had to return her.
Esther's concern over having left Gene, and Aldon's, Savannah's, and Reina's musings about Gene's whereabouts had given the poor girl a safe Gene with an Octillery and a Phantump. Everyone was okay, everyone was here. That was good. Though, Gene's arrival had her snickering at the words she said. "Oh, that's actually funny."
First, Desmond didn't seem like he was talking to her or wanting to strike up conversation, so she let him be. His Politoed was being adorable though. But she'd rather not have her Ludicolo get a bit too chaotic and the poor guy seemed to have issues with Pokemon appearing out of nowhere in a surprise.
Aldon didn't realize she had gotten supplies and she laughed a bit recalling what he said. Apparently, he was having a bit of an argument with his Slowpoke, who looked incredibly smug.
Esther seemed to be alright physically, but emotionally she wasn't so sure if Esther was going to dive bomb the poor girl and ask a bunch of questions. Judging by this girl's character, she might as well. To her question, Naka shook her head. "Nope, no problem at all."
Reina asked her questions soon after, and Naka grinned. "If you'd like to swim faster and potentially avoid Water-Types from attacking you, I would suggest having a Water-Type on hand. If not, you can buddy up with one of ours. Just pick a bag, they all have the same stuff. A wet suit if you wanna wear it, aqua-breathers, goggles, and flippers."
Back to Savannah, Naka recalled what she had said before Esther's interesting arrival, and chuckled at her for her amazement at their technology. "Oh yeah. It's cool. There's a whole new world under that water. Glad to have you with us so you can get all these cool experiences you otherwise wouldn't."
Naka then looked over at Eveline, chuckling at her dislike for diving. "If it gives you any solace, the wet suits don't have to be used, if it's the latex that bothers you. It is... Rather tight when it's not soaking." She pulled on the collar of the thing, chuckling albeit nervously. She noticed Eveline looked rather peeved, but didn't know what else it could be. Oh well, not her business.
Now that everyone was here, Naka began passing around the bags, setting them right next to each person or passing them off if they reached out to grab them. Naka disguised her backpack as one of the rental bags, hoping no one grabbed them. In fact, she was just going to bring out a Pokemon to protect the backpack.
"Alright, Mudster." She called out, but paused as to give Desmond some time to get ready, her eyes on him before sending out her Swampert. The Swampert tilted his big head to the side, confused. "I need you protecting my stuff. That would be greatly appreciated." She gave a sort of nervous chuckle, but Mudster knew what would happen if he didn't. He gave a deep growl-like purr, nuzzling his big maw against Naka's stomach before wrapping himself around the backpack, his big arm grabbing an empty rental backpack to also hug to his chest and protect. "Put the sea gear backpacks with my Swampert. He'll protect them." And protect my shit...
Once that was all done, she stretched her arms over her head, not wanting muscle cramps for when she went swimming. "The water will be a tad chilly, so if you're not going to be wearing a wet suit, beware." Recalling a brochure she read, she spoke of the diving site to get everyone up to date.
"The diving site is that of the I.S.S. Raspberry. While any worthwhile treasure may have already been looted, there could still be something worth of value or useful down there. Oh, and if you seal your lips around the aqua-breather, you can talk unhindered while underwater. Just try not to break the seal." She turned to her two fish Pokemon, the tiny white sardine and larger toothed trout splashed about with glee. With awkward waddling with the flippers, she managed to get deep enough into the water where she can swim, her fish swimming beside her.
Once she was a ways from the shore, she waited for everyone else to arrive. She hoped the kids can figure out the contraptions themselves, especially Savannah.
As soon as the group started delving into the water, she quickly dove under the surface, her hand on the reins of her Barraskewda with her Wishiwashi swimming along behind her, the aqua-breather's light turning green then blue as it began filtering oxygen from the ocean like a fish.
The silhouette of the ship - I.S.S. Raspberry - came into view. It's dilapidated structure became a home for all kinds of wildlife. Barnacles and coral grew on its rusting surface, wood rotting and weakly holding itself up. Holes were made in the seabed or the hull of the ship to make for Pokemon nests, and Naka spied the pink luster of a Gorebyss swimming out of the captain's quarters.
Naka and her two Pokemon swam until they hit the seabed, the ship several yards from them. She waited for the others to get there and share in the sights.
1 Month Ago (26 years old); June 16
Eterna City Pokemon Center Battlefield, Sinnoh
Chu the Pichu, Fluffy the Flareon, Hanu the Infernape, Yuki the Froslass, Aero the Aerodactyl, Orochi the Zweilous
: Ron Towers and Furia the Hisuian Typhlosion (Hecotoro) vs Hanu the Infernape
: Gwen Tucker (IDKWhatUserNameToDo)
Oh... Did she say untrained? Fuck, she did, didn't she? She chuckled nervously, scratching the back of her head. "I didn't mean to say she was untrained, I meant she hasn't trained in her new form, yet." Phew, dodged a bullet there. "But I do know why. Kind of. It's a working theory. Some Pokemon tend to grow angry or aggressive when they evolve. If they evolve too early, they can be either too childlike or become extremely angry. Especially when they gain a Ghost typing. All that emotion and new energy and awareness of another world can cause a Pokemon to become violent. She likely wants to battle to use this newfound, excess energy, like an Electric-Type needing a fight to keep its organs from storing electricity. I hope I'm not imposing on her too much though... She looks... Maybe a bit prideful..." Naka chuckled nervously.
Aero let out a low growl, his eyes narrowing as he watched the Typhlosion warily. The Infernape simply grinned, waiting for Furia to do something. She attempted to slash at him, but it wasn't really a move. He noticed that, a wide grin spreading across his features as his fist cloaked in shadow energy. His fingers flexed out in a claw-like fashion. He used his other arm to block the strike coming down on him as he aimed the Shadow Claw right at her chest.
Of course, this Shadow Claw wasn't very strong compared to a fully trained one. It only had half the damage output and wouldn't increase the chance of a critical hit. That didn't mean that the points were any duller, they were still quite sharp.
Regardless if he hit, he dove right under the arm he blocked to avoid the fiery orbs, rolling on the ground with a somersault and stopping himself with his hands, now on all fours as he made himself as flat as possible. Naka giggled, hopping one foot as she mimicked punching maneuvers (with proper form, of course) - a hook and a jab. "That's it!" She looked back at Gwen, a sort of thrill on her face. "Now you get to see a proper fight between two strong Pokemon." She looked back at Ron, mirroring his own smirk - even if it looked maybe a bit too sadistic.
"Hanu, be careful of her signature move!" Hanu didn't know what kind of signature move he had to look for, but given he had fought against countless Ghost-Types, he imagined what it probably looked like, and it used the flames on this thing's collar.
