Two short horn blasts pierced the dimly lit cabin, rousing its occupant roughly from her sleep.  The gentle sway of the hammock had put her at ease when she had first descended below decks, and she was sorry to have to say goodbye. It had been the first 'real' bed she had slept in for weeks. Giving a tired groan, she rolled out of the hammock. An accompanying trill followed her as her Swablu quickly resumed her usual perch on top of her head. Laughing, Talindra stretched, her joints popping as she did so. Walking to the small bathroom area, she gave herself a once over, fixing her hair around the nesting Nanu.

"That should be good enough. Not like anyone hear knows who I am, right Nanu?" The slim girl mumbled, a small smile playing on her lips as Nanu replied with a trill. With another stretch, she walked around the room grabbing stuff and adding it to the large backpack. Confident that she had placed all of her items in the bag, she hefted it onto her back and secured the straps before exiting her room for the past week.

Tally dodged all of the bulky Sailors, and eventually made it to the stern. The approaching city loomed in the distance, drawing nearer. A frown replaced the small smile; she always hated large cities. Moreover, by the looks of it, Castelia was nothing but suffocating concrete. However, the flying Pelipper in the breeze put her at ease. She sighed, and shook her head. She would just have to deal with it until she resupplied. To keep her mind off the approaching city, she released Emmelin the Pidgeot from her Pokeball. The Pokémon landed on the rail, looking keenly at Talindra for instructions.

"I figured you would love to stretch your wings, old friend. Go have fun!" It was all the instruction Emmelin needed, as she took off from the boat, doing aerial maneuvers in the sky. Talindra wasted the rest of her time on the boat this way, watching Emmelin fly and speaking softly to Nanu.

In due course, the boat began preparing to dock, and Talindra called Emmelin back to her Pokeball. She stayed out of the way until the boat had let down its anchor, before she disembarked. A few minutes acquired her the use of her land legs once more, and with casual strides she headed towards the city. She stopped as she reached the main thoroughfare, frowning at all of the bustling people. A finger found its way to her lips, as she looked at all the different paths she could take, completely lost.

"Well. Not even 5 minutes on shore and I'm hopelessly lost." A soft laugh was given at her own expense, as she studied her surroundings trying to find some indication of where to go.

"Yuck...I hate this bridge..." Tokimae said referring to the sky arrow bridge. "I mean. It's beautiful and all. It's just a long walk." She was on her way to Castelia town. Her parents were good friend of Burgh. Tokimae loved his style and love for bug Pokemon. Burgh was an artist himself; and didn't care what other people thought of him. Burgh had a few fashion ideas and wanted Tokimae to take pictures for him. She let out a sigh, "Well at least it's only two towns over." She said looking to her Manectric, Ethan. "Trikk~!" He didn't mind the walking. Tokimae could just fly, or even ride Fido; but she decided to just try and enjoy the view.  
-
There were plenty of flying Pokemon around for her to take pictures of, but she just wasn't feeling it. This was an off day, but Tokimae wondered if she could maybe meet someone new this time. Castelia City is covered with newcomers. She loved to help them out. Even if she wasn't too familiar with the city herself. It was good to explore. Tokimae never really liked big city's herself, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. She stopped walking to look over the edge of the bridge. She watched as the sun beams danced across the water. She smiled and reached into her bag for two Pokeballs. She then released Talon, her Fearow and Keemi, her Croconaw. They let out a cheery sound at the sight of there trainer.
-
"You guys go ahead and hang around till we reach Castelia City." She said.
-
Talon flew straight up into the air. Than began to fall only to be caught by the wind and flew back up. Keemi jumped right of the side of the bridge but it ended up being a failed jump and just kind of tumbled into the water. "Carful there, Keemi." Tokimae chuckled. Keemi's head popped out of the water and she smiled. Tokimae began walking again as her Pokemon followed having there own fun.
-
When Tokimae reached Castelia City she returned Keemi to her Pokeball but kept Talon out to fly throughout the city. Looking for anyone who needs assistance. She walked down a long street only to see a girl with light grey hair that shined in the sun. She seemed a bit confused. Tokimae wasn't a very shy person so she approached the girl.
"Hello, do you need any help?" Tokimae asked looking into her honey dipped eyes.

Talindra was just about to the point of catching one of the busy strangers in suits and asking them for help when she heard someone speak up. She focused on the other girl, an appreciative smile crossing her face. The girl's jade eyes were welcoming, and Talindra instantly relaxed as she met her eyes. Her Swablu took the chance to introduce herself, popping its head up from the top of the girl's and giving a trill meaning hello.

"Hi! Thank you so much for asking! I'm so lost. Completely lost. This is my first time here in Castelia and well Unova for that matter too. And it's sooo big, with sooo much concrete! Goldenrod doesn't even compare. Oh, well back to your question. Sorry for rambling on, I've been cooped on a ship for a week with no one else to talk to but my Pokémon and a bunch of burly sailors. I could really use a place to restock on supplies and find a map. My name is Talindra, by the way, but feel free to call me Tally or Tal. And the Swablu," she patted said Pokémon on top of her head, "is named Nanu." Talindra spoke quickly, and once finished sheepishly scratched the back of her head. This was a common occurrence for her, after spending weeks traveling with no one to talk to but her Pokémon and herself she often jumped at the chance for human interaction. Of course, it had led to some benefits. Tally was able to understand her Pokémon better, and had forged a better connection with them.

'Poor girl, she asked one little question and got a speech.' The thought crossed her mind, causing a slight blush to appear on her cheeks.

Tokimae greeted Nanu who landed on her head. She loved friendly Pokemon, they always bring a smile to her face. It took Tokimae a second to process the words Talindra gave to her. She couldn't decide what she liked better; Tally or Tal. "Oh it's not a problem at all, I love to talk to people! Rambling is accepted." She began. "We can stop by a market for you to stock up on supplies and I can show you around the town. I have an appointment at 8." She paused. "I'm a Pokemon Photographer. I live on route three. I'm here to help out the gym leader, Burgh. I just wanted to hang around a bit before. It's a huge town, lots of things to do." She giggled. "Did you say Goldenrod? From Johto? That's awesome. I've always wanted to visit other places, maybe when I'm older. And actually have someone to go with me. Well, Tally, correct? Come this way and I'll show you to the shop." Tokimae motioned for Tally to follower her.

Talindra grinned, happy that she met someone who loved to talk just as much as her. Nanu, now no longer interested in Tokimae or Tally, began flying around the two girls. Occasionally she would let out harmonic trills, but would never stray too far. A smile was given to Tokimae as she motioned for her to follow, and Tally began walking alongside Toki. While only having known the dark haired girl for 5 minutes, she already trusted that Toki would not lead her astray. "Thank you so much! I really do appreciate it. Everyone around here looks so busy." Tally gestured with her hands to the bustling business people before continuing.

"You're a photographer? That sounds like an amazing job! I always thought that it would be interesting to photograph my travels, but instead I just write about them." She let out a humble chuckle. Tally never really talked about her writings, as they were purely unedited thoughts from her journeys and discoveries. However, she hoped one day when she was ready to settle down to go back and edit them for publishing.

A reminiscent smile crossed Tally's lips, as she thought of her home region and adventures. "I absolutely love traveling. My hometown is Ecruteak City, in Johto. What really began my love for traveling was ruins and myths, and therefore I began a journey to visit all of the ruins scattered across the regions. It really has been an exciting, but grueling journey. If you ever get the chance to travel outside of Unova, do it! The world is absolutely stunning." Nanu flew in at the right moment to give a trill of agreement before circling around the girls and landing on Talindra's head. Absentmindedly, Tally petted the bird Pokémon resting on her head as she walked.

"To be requested personally by one of the gym leaders here, that must be a big accomplishment, no? Does the gym leader system here in Unova work like the other regions? Do you often do big jobs like this?" Tally questioned, her curious nature getting the better of her.

Tokimae smiled. "You're welcome and I'm glad. Yeah, there's always people coming in and out of this town. It can get a little crazy. Busy towns make me nervous; I never know what to do. Hehe." Tokimae searched for Ethan and found him slowly following behind. She frowned. Normally he's more friendly to new Pokemon. What's his problem? She kept walking listening to the girl.
-
"Haha, yep. It's a fabulous job. I get to do what I love, and I get paid for it. Writing is pretty nice. Sadly, I never got into it." She looked down at her feet. "Ruins and myths? That's amazing. Oh yeah? That's a pretty big goal to visit them all." Tokimae paused to think of Unova's ruins. "If you're looking for runis there's one east of Unova. It's called the Abyssal ruins. I've never been but from what I've heard it's really nice. The catch is..." She paused for dramatic effect and then smiled. "you have to go underwater to visit it. There's also an underground ruin somewhere in Unova... Also, I can't wait to travel. It's for sure on my bucket list."
-
Tokimae began to laugh. "Well, it is an accomplishment in my book, but it wasn't that hard to get. Burgh has been a family friend for years. He's been around a lot and he's a close friend of my parents. Burgh used to tell me all sorts of stories about Pokemon when I was a little girl." Tokimae tried to remember some of the stories and tales he'd tell but they seamed to escape from her memory. This was a new one...
-
"I'm not sure how the gym system works in other regions. I thought they were all the same. Basically we've got eight leaders; eight badges to collect. Once you've won all eight you can move on to fight the elite four. Beat them then you're moving on to the Champion, and man is he strong. Beat the Champion, you're a legend. I've never battled a gym leader. Even though I've been surrounded by them my whole life." This shocked Tokimae, she's never thought about it.
-
"Big jobs come and go. The gym leaders are very friendly to other people and even though they're famous; they want to be treated like they're no big deal. You know what I mean?" She tried to find her words. "I'm friends with a hand full of the leaders. Occasionaly they'll ask me for a shoot. I'm pretty much up for anything. As long as I have my camera," Tokimae gripped her camera bag and held it up. "my Pokemon, and friends than I'm good to go!"
-
"I'm sorry, I talk a lot too." She giggled as they finally came to the PokeCenter. "Here we are. In this building you can have Nurse Joy heal your Pokemon while you by things." Before they walked in Tokimae stopped walking and called for Talon to come down. The space was clear so that Talon could land with ease. Tokimae looked at Ethan and motioned for him to jump onto Talon's back. "Stay with Talon okay?" She asked. He nodded and jumped onto her back then layed down. Talon took off. She turned her attention back to Tally.

Talindra continued walking alongside Toki, giving a large smile to Ethan as he trailed along. “Where I grew up, there was important value placed upon nature. And the connections between humans and Pokémon. I never really liked cities because of all the concrete and asphalt.”

Her interest piqued when Tokimae began talking about ruins. She had heard about Unova’s ruins from fellow colleagues, but none of them had ever visited. “I’ll definitely have to go visit them, then. Where are your museums or artifact collections located? I usually try to get in touch with the researchers there before setting out for the ruins. Just in case they need some kind of special material while I’m out exploring.”

She listened as Tokimae told her about Burgh and the gym system, comparing things in her mind. It was neat that Toki was so used to working around such big names. Apparently, she had not stumbled across just any ordinary photographer, but quite a famous one by her own right. “That’s pretty awesome that you get to work so closely with the gym leaders. I’ve never really interacted much with them. I never really got into battling for badges either, although I did go to Pokémon School and learn all that I could about battling. That and my parents sort of forced me. It was either that or learning how to be a Kimono girl. Yeah, I guess I kind of understand the celebrity status as well, during my research work I’ve met quite a few Professors who are known across the regions.” A thoughtful twist of her lips accompanied her pause.  She had met many well-known Professors, like Professor Oak, as she had journeyed through the regions. Tally still gave the old man a call while out traveling, as she knew he enjoyed seeing the different Pokémon and ruins. “And actually, the gyms in Johto and Kanto are a little different. Since the regions are right next to each other, many of the trainers strive for 16, not 8 badges. And the Elite Four are the top trainers of both Kanto and Johto.” She finished her thought process as they approached the PokeCenter.

Tally waited on Toki to call her Fearow down, laughing lightly as Ethan jumped on its back. ‘I’ll have to introduce Emmelin and Talon at some point. It’ll be interesting to see their reactions.’ She had learned growing up that most Pidgeots and Fearows did not get along, and Emmelin had an extremely boastful nature. “Let’s go in then shall we?” Tally held the door open for Toki before approaching Nurse Joy and dropping off all her Pokémon sans Nanu. Nanu was already well rested, as Tally rarely used her in fights. She still regarded Nanu as her ‘baby’, and was extremely protective of the Pokémon. Making sure it was okay for her to leave her Pokémon in the care of Nurse Joy; she turned back to her new friend with a large grin on her face.

“Thanks for showing me here. If it is still no inconvenience, I would love to go to the store. I have quite the shopping list!” A laugh accompanied her statement.

Tokimae followed in and listened; pondering with her own thoughts before answering all these questions as they stood in the Pokemon Center. She watched her hand over her Pokemon to the kind faced Nurse Joy. "Hmm, well I know of one museum in Unova. It's located in Nacrene City, not to far from here. I actually have a friend that works there that should know a lot about Ruins, artifacts, and old stuff." she giggled. She hasn't visited Yumi in a long time.
-
"I also recommend talking to the Pokemon Professor in this region too. Her name's Juniper. You can learn about all the Pokemon you could find in on your journey. Wow, that's a lot of badges. I've actually met Professor Oak once! He's quite the character. He was here to visit Professor Juniper for something about a legendary Pokemon. It wasn't really much of my business so I just let the subject be after I met him. But other than that, I'm not sure. I know of a research lab on Route 6; but I think that's for a Pokemon called a Deerling...I can help you find out where you could go. I mean I know a few tips. I know that you're going to need a water Pokemon that knows dive. And have diving equipment..."
-
"Oh right. A PokeMart." She began to laugh. "Here in Unova the PokeMart and Pokemon Center are in the same building." She pointed over to a corner of the room where there was a some what attractive guy standing at the counter spacing out. "That's where you can buy the things you need. If you need anything rare than we might have to find a market in a different town." Tokimae caught that she said 'we'...She didn't mean to say she'd be tagging along. Only if Tally wanted her to, she didn't correct her self to avoid awkwardness.

Talindra looked to where she Tokimae gestured, a look of faint surprise on her face. "Oh wow! The stores here are actually combined with the PokeCenter? That makes it somewhat more helpful. But I don't know how they carry the same amount of products." Talindra spoke as she began walking towards the clerk. Once there she handed him her list of needed supplies, as it was rather long. She had tried to travel light while she was on the boat, and thus needed mostly everything. As a backpacker she had to be prepared for everything. As he began gathering her things, she turned back to Tokimae to continue their conversation.

"You mentioned a friend at a museum? I'll have to visit them then! I'm sure after all this spending my bank account will take a big hit, I'll have to see if they know of any contracts or things they need researched. And I'll definitely have to get a hold of Professor Juniper, she might be able to give me some possible job opportunities while I travel." Tally turned back to the Clerk as he brought all of her stuff up to the counter. She handed him the amount needed to cover the hefty price tag, cringing slightly. "Thanks dear. Sorry for all the hassle!" She said to the guy, giving him a small wink. She received her change back from the Shop Keeper and scooted her items out of the way of other customers. Dropping her giant back pack on the floor she began packing it. Everything from Fresh Waters to Antidotes had a specific place in the bag. It was like playing a game of real life Tetris.

"Sorry for keeping you so long! I require a bunch of junk." She laughed lightly before continuing, "A research lab on a Pokemon named Deerling? Is that a legendary Pokemon? And my Lapras knows Dive, but I'm afraid I don't have a re-breather or anything. We'll have to find one. Also, do you know anywhere that may sell Berries? I usually buy my berries in bulk then make my own Pokemon food. I have a couple of picky eaters." Tally finished packing items into the backpack, it now about 5 times its normal flat size. She left it on the floor and stood back up to face Toki.

"Oh, but I know you have other things you're supposed to be doing I'm sure. I'd hate to be a burden! You've already done so much for me!" Tally sheepishly scratched the back of her head, not meaning to impose herself further. She was truly enjoying the girl's company, it was nice to have another girl around instead of the bulky sailors.

Tokimae laughed, "You'd be surprised what they have." She watched as she gave the list to the clerk and he gathered the items up when her phone started to ring. "Oh, one second."
-
"Hello darling! I'm so sorry but I think I will have to cancel our appointment. I just had a ton of trainers check in that they needed to battle me tonight." apologized Burgh.
"Oh no, it's fine!" Tokimae said.
"Are you sure, I'm sorry to make you come all the way here then have to cancel." he said.
"No really, it's fine. Don't be to hard on those trainers." she giggled.
"Alright miss. I'll call you soon!"
He hung up and Tokimae placed her phone back into her bag.
-
She went back to Tally to continue the conversation. "Oh yeah, I'm sure the museum will need plenty of fossils. There's also many caves scattered across Unova." Tokimae said following Tally and watched as she packed her bag.
-
"It's not a problem at all! Deerling isn't much of a legendary Pokemon. I guess you could call it rare It's a seasonal one. Deerling's will change the color of there coat according to the season." She paused. "My Croconaw knows Dive as well. And I believe my parents have diving equipment back at their home that we could use. Oh, I'm not sure where you can buy berries, but I have tons at home. I grow berries because my Pokemon are picky eaters too! I might have what you need."
-
"Oh, you're fine. Haha, besides. I don't mind tagging along with you! This gives me a chance to get shots of Pokemon that I don't have scattered across Unova. And sadly, Burgh had to cancel. He has a group of trainers he needs to battle. So as long as it's cool with you, we could travel together." She smiled.

"A Pokemon that changes its colors by the seasons? That does sound pretty neat. I'll definitely have to stop by the lab! I wonder what colors a shiny deerling has? Or if they're the same? Haha, but I'm getting off track. Your parents have diving equipment? Not the usual thing someone has laying around, but I'll definitely take what I can get!" She laughed lightly, before bending over and hoisting the bag onto her back. Nanu, awoken from her light slumber, flew up before gently resting back on Tally's head. She let out a light trill, before snuggling in Talindra's hair once more.

Talindra wiggled back and forth for a moment, adjusting the weight of the backpack. "I definitely don't miss lugging this thing around. But you have to do what you have to do. And I'm glad that I'm not the only one with picky eaters! I have my own little berry garden back at home that my mother tends for me while I'm away. Its not much, but we make some of the best berries in Johto! If you wouldn't mind letting me use some of your berries that would be great! I'll have to repay you somehow, maybe teaching you a special Kimono Girl recipe?" Tally winked at Toki at the end of statement, a small laugh accompanying.

"I definitely don't mind traveling together. Maybe I won't get lost as much. I swear I would lose my head if it wasn't attached. I'm sorry to hear about Burgh as well, it must be an extremely busy life for a Gym Leader though. And feel free to take as many shots of them as you want. My Pidgeot, Emmelin, is quite the model. She loves to put on a show for anyone willing to watch. Speaking of, lets check and see if Nurse Joy is done? I always feel weird without my Pokemon." After relying on her Pokemon and having them for her only traveling partners for such a long time, it was odd for her to part with them for long periods. Her Pokemon seemed to have the same attachment issues, preferring to see her frequently as well.

"Heh...Yeah. My mom used to be a diver. She's got a lot of water type Pokemon so she'd train underwater." Tokimae sighed. She than giggled. "That's nice that she'd take care of your stuff while you're away. You can take as many berries as you need. That sounds pretty awesome. I'm sure my Pokemon would love that!" she laughed.
-
"Well, I've never been all through the region. So we might get a little lost...But Fido, My Arcanine is good with directions! So he should get us to the place we need. Plus I've got Talon, who could look at the surroundings from above." her face lit up at the idea.
-
"Don't worry about Burgh, they've been doing this most of there life. They're used to it." she paused. "Is she really? Haha, I've got a Pokemon the same way. Say, why don't we go outside and introduce our teams?" she asked. "And I know how you feel." She watched as Tally received her Pokemon from Nurse Joy.

"Sounds like a great idea! We'll need to find someplace with water though if you want to meet all of them, if you don't mind. And, sometimes getting lost isn't always a bad thing. I find that sometimes when I'm lost, it helps me find things that I wasn't originally looking for. If that makes any sense, haha." Tally laughed lightly as she approached Nurse Joy. She always enjoyed meeting the Pokemon Center healers, the Joy family was genetically interesting. The only theory she had heard that held any weight in her mind was that they had many genetically dominant traits. It was the only plausible reason for their likeliness. Regardless, she received her Pokemon from Nurse Joy and placed them back into the holster on her hip. The familiar weight of them resting there was comforting. Giving Nurse Joy a quick, "Thank you!", she turned back to Toki with a smile and lead the way out of the Pokemon Center.

"You'll have to direct me from here, as I don't know the best place to go, yet. The only reason I asked for someplace with water is because my Lapras doesn't do too well on land." Talindra let out another soft laugh, gesturing for Toki to take the lead. 'I hope Amasis doesn't mind all the fuss for a few moments. He certainly hates being around lots of people.' The thought crossed her mind, but she had faith that he could put up with others for a few moments before seeking the solitude of his PokeBall. He certainly was an antisocial Absol, but with the species' troubled past with humans she couldn't blame him.

Tokimae waited until she was finished to speak up. "Oh don't worry, I was thinking we should let them out when we reach the Skyarrow bridge that connects Castelia City to Nacrene City. On the way over here my Croconaw swam through the water so I'm pretty sure your Lapras will be fine! Plus our Pokemon won't be overwhelmed by crowds of people." She smiled and began to exit the Pokemon center.
-
"I don't mind leading the way! I'm familiar with the rest of this area. When we reach Nacrene City we can stop by the museum if they're open. My friend Yumi might not be working today, but that's fine because we need to ask the owner what fossils we should be looking for." Tokimae held the door open for a group of people walking in.

Talindra waited as Toki held the door, a small smile on her face. "Does Unova have a lot of bridges? Johto doesn't really have any large water bridges. We do have a lot of swimmers though, and islands. We even have one city that basically floats on water, called Alto Mare. They have races there every year through the canals. Its a beautiful city!"
Talindra let her thoughts stray to home. It had been a few months since she had last visited. Her mother made sure to call her regularly though, and was always telling her about some new thing she had bought. Reining her thoughts in, she continued talking to Toki.

"Your friend Yumi, does she do a lot of research? I would be interested in seeing her work. It is always fun to compare notes with other Scientists and Ruin Maniacs. I always loved genetics and science, I just couldn't dedicate my life to it. Not enough adventure in micro-organisms. How did the two of you meet?" Talindra queried, as the group of people finally entered the building. Nanu took this chance to wake up, and began cleaning Talindra's hair. It wasn't really dirty, but the Swablu was a clean freak. To be honest, Talindra was surprised she hadn't went crazy in the city.

"I'm pretty sure we've got about five or six bridges. Here, I can show you a map of Unova!" Tokimae reached into her side bag and pulled out a folded piece of paper. She then pointed out each bridge. She handed it to Tally to look at and give back when she was done. "That city sounds awesome."

"Yumi?" she paused. "She does a far amount of research. It's her hobby and her job." she giggled. "How did we meet? Well let me think. She's practically my sister. She grew up with me on Route 3. We've started to grow apart seeing she lives in Nacrene. But we still try to stay best friends. Takes the effort of two." She began to walk.

Receiving the map from Tokimae, Talindra looked over it as they walked. She listened as the younger girl spoke, giving a nod at the right moments. Nanu took the chance to fly over to Toki, where she began grooming the photographer of invisible dust. "I hope you don't mind Nanu, she is a bit obsessed with neatness. I think she imagines half the stuff, though." She paused, a small apologetic look crossing her features. "I never had any siblings, my mother was unable to after having me. I've always wondered what it is like to have brothers and sisters though. I do have a best friend from childhood that I keep in contact with from home. He helps me out sometimes by checking on my parents for me. And, according to the map, we're here right? So this must be Route 3...and this is Nacrene?" Talindra gestured to various locations and features on the map, glad to finally get her bearings in this new land. Tally was definitely one to easily stray off the path, but in the same sense once she knew the general layout of the land she could figure out how to make it back to civilization.

A quick glance up from the map gave Tally her first sight of Skyarrow Bridge. "Wow! That's an amazing bridge. We definitely don't have any bridges like that in Johto." A small laugh accompanied her amazement, a grin from ear to ear stretching across her face. 'I'll definitely have to write about this.' The thought strayed across her mind as she marveled over the architecture and engineering feat.

Tokimae laughed. "Nanu is fine." She said, she appreciated that the Swablu liked her enough to clean her hair. She listened to her speak. "I've always wondered what it would be like to have brothers or sisters also. Yumi was the closest thing.And that is sweet of him to help you out. " Tokimae nodded while she pointed out locations. Tokimae laughed at her reaction. "Yep, the long-never ending bridge!" she joked. "Just kidding, we're not to far Nacrene. When we reach the city we can stop by the Museum! Now, how about we intoduce our Pokemon." Tokimae suggested as they reached the empty bridge, normally there would be more people, but they come and go.

"Yeah, he is a great guy. I don't visit home as often as I should, though." Talindra gave a small wistful smile, but nodded to Toki as she described how long until Nacrene. The small joke made her laugh lightly, it certainly appeared to be never ending.

"That sounds great. My party is kind of eclectic, so bear with me!" Talindra grinned, and started realeasing her Pokemon from their Pokeballs. First off was Emmelin, her beloved Pidgeot. The bird Pokemon eagerly flew up into the sky, and began stretching her wings above the two girls. In the sun her dashing red and yellow colors shone beautifully as she showed off. Next came Hapi, who she directed into the water as he was released. The Lapras seemed to smile largely at the two girls, and splashed happily in the water. Nearly covered by the water, a small birth mark stood out against the other spots. It was a small heart, something Talindra had always loved about Hapi. His large frame towered over the girls, and his splashing was forceful enough to nearly drench the girls. Nanu, slightly indignant about nearly getting wet trilled at Hapi, who calmed down a little bit.

"Haha, so the energetic Lapras is Hapi. You have to forgive him, he is still a bit of a kid. The Pidgeot showing off up there is Emmelin. And she is a attention hog." Talindra explained to Toki, shaking her head at her Pokemon's antics. Her hands found another Pokeball, this time releasing Hasina, her Bayleef. Bayleef let out a happy "Leeef!" and shook, a little bit of her aroma spreading around her. The scent made people and Pokemon alike feel slightly more energetic, and it was still something that Hasina had trouble controlling. The Bayleef tilted her head at Tokimae, and characteristically like a dog ran over to Tokimae and began circling her legs, letting out a happy stream of cries.

Talindra laughed lightly and quickly grabbed the bouncing Pokemon's attention. "Hasina! Please try and control your aroma, dear. I still have to let out Osiris and Amasis." Hasina bounced around Tokimae once more, before sitting down next to the girl and rubbing her head contentedly on her leg. Hasina loved meeting new people, and for some reason the girl smelt very good to the Bayleef. Talindra, sensing that Hasina had calmed down, grabbed her next Pokeball and released Osiris. The young Cranidos stood for a moment, gazing around at the assembled group of people, before finally staring at Talindra. His feet shuffled slightly, and his stance seemed to suggest he was getting ready to move quickly. Talindra quickly realizing that she was about to be on the receiving end of a headbutt, held a finger out towards the Cranidos.

"No. You will not headbutt me, and no other humans. Do not headbutt any of Tokimae's or your Pokemon friends either! That is not being nice Osiris!" Talindra spoke sternly to the Craniodos, and he backed off, an apologetic look in his eyes. He let out a soft "Doooos.", and looked around. He bounced once in happiness upon seeing a large boulder, before he ran at it and began to ram his skull against it. Talindra, if possible, sweat-dropped.

Shaking her head, she grabbed her final Pokeball and released Amasis. She was worried most about the Absol's response to all of the commotion, but the lack of people did seem to help. Amasis, however, quickly came to Talindra's side. Once there, he hid slightly behind her legs as best he could, and seemingly glared at Tokimae from behind his owner's legs. The Absol found it hard to trust other humans, and usually was standoffish around others. Talindra, understanding that he didn't like the new setting, gently laid a hand upon his head in reassurance. The Pokemon seemed to relax a little bit, and instead of staring at Tokimae turned his red eyes upon his surroundings.

"Well, that's my party! The one bashing its head against the boulder is Osiris, and the one lurking behind me is Amasis. He doesn't really like humans, but is quite taken with me for some reason. As for Osiris, I think he is strengthening his skull, and he doesn't know his manners quite well. His horns on the sides of his head are still growing out too. Think of it like a baby teething. " Talindra smiled as she watched her Pokemon, scratching the back of her head in a slightly embarrassed manner.

She watched as she released and explained each of her Pokemon. She said hello to each and every Pokemon she introduced. "Wow, you've got a nice team!" she said petting Hasina. "Guess it's my go." she said. Tokimae looked to the sky and whistled. Then came Talon, her Fearow. She landed quickly next to her trainer. "Well, this is Talon, you saw her earlier. Then on the back is Ethan." Ethan jumped off of Talon's back and smiled at the other Pokemon. He went to go greet Osiris. "Be careful there Ethan, if he starts to headbutt you dodge alright?" she asked. Ethan nodded. He approached the Pokemon being as careful as possible. "Trikk." he said hello to the Craniodos.
-
Tokimae moved on explaining the rest of her team. She reached for a Pokeball in her bag and released the creature inside. Out came Keemi, her Croconaw. "Here is Keemi." The Pokemon waved to Tally and then jumped over the edge falling, again into the water. Tokimae sighed. "She's quite the character." Keemi greeted the Lapras and swam around her.
-
Toki grapped another ball and out came her Arcanine, Fido. He ran up to Toki and licked her face. "Good boy. This is Fido." She said to Tally. Fido lowered his head at the girl. She grabbed another Pokeball and out came George her Krookodile. "Well here's the big and strong George." Tokimae giggled. George was one of the sweetest Krookodile she's ever met, probably because SHE raised him. He cheered at the excitement and extended his arm to Tally to shake.
-
"I just recently got a new addition to my team." Tokimae begin releasing a Chikorita. "This is Hana. I noticed you had a Bayleef, maybe they could be good friends." She suggested. Hana ran over to Tokimae's leg and wrapped her vine's around her, hugging her in a way. Tokimae giggled. "Hey, Hana. Go say hello to the other Pokemon." Toki said. She released Tokimae and looked around at all the Pokemon. She then saw Hasina and was amazed. She went over to her and lifted up her paw to wave hello.

Talindra laughed lightly as Talon descended, and as the Manectric jumped off the bird Pokemon's back. Craniodos at first did not acknlowedge the Pokemon greeting him, and isntead gave the boulder another good smash. Staggering back from the particular hard headbutt, he turned slightly dazed to Ethan. Seemingly appeased with the amount of head bashing he had preformed, he greeted the fellow Pokemon with a long "Dooos." Osiris slightly wobbled over to the Manectric before he stuck a short stubby arm out in greeting.

Another laugh emittted from the young backpacker as Keemi jumped off the bridge and into the water next to Hapi. "Haha, I think she is adorable!" Tally giggled, as Hapi greeted the Croconaw and playfully splashed her. She turned her attention back to Tokimae as she released the large Arcanine, a smile still on her face. "Hello there Fido. You are quite the handsome boy!" Talindra greeted, bowing her head slightly to the Pokemon in return. Emmelin took the oppurtunity to stop showing off with her aerial maneuvers and flew down to approach Talon. When in range she landed, and emitted a single "Ot." She stuck a wing out to the sky, and seemingly gestured for Talon to fly with her. "Ot, ot." The Pidgeot explained, her language for: 'Come fly and show me what you can do.' Emmelin always wanted to test out her skills, and this new Fearow was the perfect chance.

As Tokimae released George, Talindra nearly squealed in excitement. She eagerly accepted his handshake, as she analyzed all the features of the Krookodile. "I've never seen this type of Pokemon before. You said his name was George? What type is he?" Talindra questioned, noting that the Pokemon if he wasn't so friendly would look very intimidating. Amasis, still sitting behind Talindra merely took this all in. He didn't sense any danger approaching his trainer, and so he allowed her for now to be friendly with these new Pokemon. Not to say that he liked it. Because he didn't. Not one bit.

Talindra paused in her analysis of the Krookodile, and turned to greet the little Chikorita. "Aw, I remember when Hasina was at that stage. They should get along great!" Hasina turned her interest from Tokimae to Hana, bouncing once in excitement before sticking her paw out against the smaller Chikorita's. In addition, the Bayleef puffed out her chest and stood as majestically as possible, showing off for the Chikorita. Unable to contain herself, she bounced around in a circle once before nuzzling Hana.

Ethan observed Osiris and then stuck out his paw to shake his. Fido beamed with joy at the compliment he got from Tally. Talon looked to Tokimae for approval. "You go girl." she said. Talon wasn't to big an all of the moves but she did enjoy flying with a friend. She twirled up and waited to follow Emmelin's lead. Tokimae laughed at the reaction Tally gave for George. "Krookodiles are part ground and dark type. They're very violent Pokemon, they try to clamp down on anything that moves in front of their eyes. I wanted my Pokemon to be a little nice than that so he's pretty sweet. But when it comes to battling he won't give up without giving his all." Tokimae explained. Hana was overjoyed by the Bayleaf and then tried to copy her action. Standing straight up and buffing out her chest. Hana accepted the nuzzle. "Chikk...?" she asked if she could get onto Hasina's back. She wanted to see what it was like at that height. Tokimae giggled at the interaction between the two Pokemon and turned her attention back to Tally. "At the end of this bridge is Pinwheel Forest. Once we pass that do you possible want to have a battle? Your first battle in Unova. Plus I always like to get to know what my friends are capable of when they show off they're Pokemon, it's almost like an art." Tokimae giggled
