I haven't read any of the posts before my joining, but I'm getting curious if the diplomatic thing is something I started or is it just a random chance that pokemon join from talking to them? lol

Mark caught his lapras by talking to his loch ness monster, so the sweet idiot at least has a bit of precedent with things like this.

IIRC Mina's Sandshrew (along with a handful of others, there was a whole group of Sandshrew and everyone in the group got one) was diplo'd into joining, and that was *checks* about a month after the game started back in 2008. I can't remember if any of the first catches were diplo'd before that, unless you count Evan and Mina's Pikachu's eggs hatching. It's not a guarantee but it's reasonably common in this game.

Reasons for this vary, but boil down to the fact that Pokemon are intelligent creatures. And it doesn't take a genius to figure out 'hey, if a human catches me keeping me fed will be their problem!' when the region is barren and dying. Add to that if they get a good trainer their odds of getting much more powerful much faster go way up, they get free medical care, they're much less likely to get eaten if they lose a fight, they can travel to new places...On top of that Bandra's been around long enough even the Pokemon know they're bad news by this point.

The big flip sides are that it's not always obvious a trainer is any good, they may get dumped in unfamiliar terrain if the new trainer doesn't want them after all, they'd be giving up territory and possibly a mate and/or offspring if they had any of those, they may not get a mate after being captured (most trainers don't breed their Pokemon, and the ones that do don't necessarily breed all their Pokemon). They also may not want to travel or battle, etc.

But with the region in as bad a shape as it is, the scale is going to tilt towards 'not starving to death' and/or 'protecting home from the bad guys'. In fact it got to the point with Mina that none of her Pokemon were traditional catches (Pikachu hatched, Sandshrew volunteered to join, Oodramer was a fossil, Houndoom she got from participating in a tournament). In fact I think Cosmas was the first one she caught without asking him beforehand if he minded...which is why she asked him afterwards!

Updated with info.

Edit:
I better ask before we get too far in, do you two have any specific goals for your week of solo adventure? It's fine if you don't, I'm just asking so I know what kind of hooks to throw your way.

Aaand I have once again forgotten to factor in the -1 Accuracy level on Sing, only for it not to matter in any case!

EDIT:

The Ooze and Oval fossils are Helnith Pokémon if it wasn't obvious.

ALSO:

Okay guys, I need a little help from one or both of you: Elder Rashel is going to ask Mina some Poffin-related questions, and if Mina gets once or more of them right, she gets fabulous prizes! But I obviously can’t look up anything to make these questions myself, because by doing so I will then discover the answers, thus making it impossible to get them wrong. Since it’s no fun to arbitrarily decide that I do or do not get the questions right, I need questions for Mina to answer!

I need three questions total, which should ideally be Berry or Poffin related. They should be questions you know the answer(s) to yourself, so you can tell me if Mina got them right or not. The fabulous prizes are as follows, which should help you determine how hard to make the questions:

1 right answer: 2d3+1 random healing Berries (Oran, Lum, Cheri, or similar).
2 right answers: The above, and 1d3+1 type-resist Berries guaranteed to be varieties Mina does not yet have.
3 right answers: GRAND PRIZE! All of the above, plus another portable Berry Planter.

Mostly looking for a chance to relax and just train in my case. Mark is going through some stuff and needs a chance to recover, or at least just to relax, or he's going to get jaded rather quickly. He's a strong-willed and sweet lad, but he can only take so much before he turns into Jason Bourne... but with pokemon.

As for the questions... let's see...

1) What does the smoothness of a Poffin determine?

2) What tournament abilities are affected by a Sweet poffin?

3) What is the flavor of an Oran berry?

Umm...

1. IIRC Smooth was another name for 'Feel' and the lower it is, the more Poffin a Pokemon can eat before Poffin stops having any effect on the Pokemon's stats.

2. By 'tournament abilities' I'm assuming you mean the actual battle stats. Sweet affects Speed. On the Contest circuit it affects Cute.

3. Dry IIRC. (Technically it has flavors in multiple categories, but most of them cancel each other out.)

Bingo on all three! Well done. Though I said tournament attributes because Bulbapedia didn't list the actual stat impacts of a poffin flavor.

Yay, I can now double my Berry output!

And Bulbapedia doesn't list it because that's something the original Dungeon Master house-ruled in.

The Old Amber you should know, Aerodactyl was a Gen I Pokemon. The other two are about the same level of rarity - the Ooze Fossil is for Oodramer (like Mina has), the Oval Fossil is for a Pokemon called Carnirex (T-Rex Pokemon). Don't fret over it too much; all three of them can occur as random treasure when mining, and of course there will be other opportunities for money if you prefer to go the other way.

Speaking of money, were you lot going to take a crack at that safe or shall I poof it off into the ether?

Mark might try something with it, though he's not tooooo good at the whole super-thief thing. Kirlia can try combinations/ listening carefully, maybe? IDK... we'll see.

Mina might have a couple of thoughts, but no one has asked her. Remember she was back in Ceris when you two were discussing ways to break into it in the first place; she only just barely knows that it exists.
