Mark and Mina:

"That could work. How about Ceris itself then? That way we each only have to go halfway." And get there first, just in case. Then they could prepare a counter-ambush, and they would be in a friendly city—hopefully with Bandra-hostile trainers nearby willing to help them out if things got sticky. "Maybe get some training in while we wait, or find some battles."

((Sending the text if Mark says yes, to spare Alkar having to wait any longer.))

"Yep, sounds like a plan. Also, maybe we can make some plans based on our team-mate's pokemon while we walk? It could give us something to do." Because obviously talking about other things was just not a good idea with these two... "Do you remember what other pokemon our team has?"

Mark and Mina:

"Yep, sounds like a plan. Also, maybe we can make some plans based on our team-mate's pokemon while we walk? It could give us something to do."

"Yes, let's do that." Mina meanwhile typed in a brief text message one-handed and sent it off to Stacey.

"Do you remember what other pokemon our team has?"

"Some of them. They might have caught more in the last few days or switched them around."

Though she had been making a point to research the Pokemon of everyone in the group. The effort hadn't paid off spectacularly yet, but it at least let Mina warn the others when they were about to do something stupid like attack the Wispaferyn with Fire attacks (that was, when Mina remembered and the trainer in question listened, anyway).

"But you said something about medicine, I take it we have a job?"

----------------

Stacey:

Checking your Pokedex while on the boat, you notice you've received a text message:

Mina sent you a message!

Meet us in Ceris, noon tomorrow.


((Afterwards: ))

((Encounter Roll = 73))

Your next dive turns up nothing, either HM, wreck or Pokemon.

((Encounter Roll = 74))

Another twenty minutes in the water proves fruitless.

((Encounter Roll = 70))

Again, nothing. Theodore is pouting and Stef looks frustrated.

((Encounter Roll = 28))

You're halfway to the seafloor when a twenty-foot-long Gyarados fades out of the murk.

Gyarados: 74/74

((Going to flee?))

"But you said something about medicine, I take it we have a job?"

"Yep!" Mark put the package in his pack next to his rod. "The old medicine lady is having us deliver a package for her. I think she may almost be done for the season, since her shop seems to be running low on medicines. Or maybe she's waiting for a restock... either way, we have a job."

Mark and Mina:

"Cool. Just the one package or are we going to be trekking to half-a-dozen towns?" Mina also briefly wondered if she should stop and grab more Pokeballs while they were here. The Starlight Squad had implied Ceris was bigger, and they might be able to battle some trainers for more money to buy them with if she waited...

Stacey responds to Mina,

Should be able to, if tide permits.

She checks her dex to see when and if there would be a low tide between the time she got through with this diving, and noon the next day.

Stacey:

The Tide Checker App tells you there is a low tide at 5 PM today and 5:30 AM tomorrow morning.

((Fleeing Gyarados: ))

You attempt to flee!

((Roll = 88))

The Gyarados seems to take sudden notice of you and lunges; Tunabu blocks it with one fanning, steel enshelled fin.

Tunabu is hit for 7 damage!
It's not very effective...

The Gyarados recoils briefly and Tunabu makes another attempt to pull the three of you to the surface.

((Roll = 95))

The Gyarados recovers and lunges again; this time its fangs scrape the Steel type's underside.

Tunabu is hit for 6 damage!

((Roll = 75))

Tunabu manages to slip past the Gyarados then, coming so close your foot brushes one of the serpentine monster's coils. Theodore is shaking as you make it back to the boat, and Stef is pale.

Mark shrugged, "Yeah, but we're getting paid and his is an opportunity to find some new or rare pokemon. Also, this place doesn't sell pokeballs or potions, so going to a larger town might be a good idea." He slung his pack over his shoulder and gestured to the door, smiling slightly.

Christian:

((Chips as in, 'bits of the wall were broken off."))

You follow the path to another intersection; once again it branches off, sharp to the right and straight to the left. A piece of crystal stuck in the wall shines back at you like an eye, and the briefest of scrapes can be heard from the right.

----------------

Stacey:

((Encounter Roll = 70))

You search the bottom but all you find is muck and the occasional piece of rubbish.

((Encounter Roll = 21))

You make it to the bottom, but run into another Tentacool before you can finish your search of the area.

Tentacool: 62/62

((Escape Roll = 47))

Tunabu narrowly avoids the Poison type and pulls you back to the surface.

((Encounter Roll = 12))
You barely even dive before running into yet another jellyfish Pokemon.

Tentacool: 54/54

((Escape Roll = 99))

Tunabu underestimates the Tentacool and her tail gets ensnared in tentacles.

Tentacool uses Constrict! ((Roll = 55))
Tunabu is hit for 1 damage!
It's not very effective...

((Escape Roll = 37))

Tunabu then manages to shake herself free and you escape.

((Encounter Roll = 100))

Another twenty minutes goes by, this time ending with some measure of success; your team finds the back corner of a ship.

((Encounter Roll = 8))

You search diligently, but find nothing. On your way up, however, you encounter another Gyarados:

Gyarados: 77/77

Tunabu exerts herself to flee the terrifying monster of the deep—

((Escape Roll = 49))

—and successfully makes it to the surface.

On your return to the ship, Theodore goes straight to the Geology Club's stash of chips and food, claiming the close call made him hungry.

Mark and Mina:

"Not complaining, just wondering if I should stock up on supplies before we leave. But I guess if there's nothing here to buy, there's no point." Mina stood up and dusted herself off. "Shall we go?"

"Well, that hardly turned up anything at all. Hopefully our next set turns out better. Time for some food."

Stacey follows Theodore to find some food too. Even some for her pokemon, if they should have any.

Mark and Mina (traveling):

((Encounter Roll = 18))

The pair of you set off south, towards Ceris. About an hour's travel down the road, you spot a pair of trainers (obvious by the Pokeballs on their persons and the fact that one has her Pokedex peeking out of a pocket), both female, coming from the opposite direction.

----------------

Mark and Mina (conversation en route):

"I'm not quite sure what we can do with Stacey's Pokemon. A lot of them are Ground-weak, so the Flying types could help there, and I know she has a Gloom I can have Houndoom cover from the Wispaferyn...most of her team is slow and bulky, but right now they aren't bulky ENOUGH to deal with the more experienced Bandra Pokemon we keep running into."

----------------

Stacey:

Stef grabs you a big bag of pretzels and several packets of Pokechow while the Geology Club gradually settle down to chat about their findings for the day so far. The group with the Wailmer is bragging about the Pearl they found, and Simon from the Geology Club is trying to get one of the fellows on the ship to chat with him about Fossil Pokemon.

----------------

Brona:

((Encounter Roll = 63, 58, 22))

The day passes surprisingly without incident; the most you encounter are a handful of Wingull, all too far off to pay you any attention. Unfortunately you also don't find anything in the way of food, and after several hours of walking your Nidoran friend is acting hungry and resentful.

You leave the mountainous peninsula behind you after three hours' travel, and head gradually into less fertile territory. About 5PM you finally make out a town in the distance, though whether or not it's friendly is impossible to tell from here.

You follow the passage right. It rises gradually, and you have to duck from time to time before it ends in a ledge overlooking another intersection. Echoes come from the right.

((Trainers))

Before encountering them, Mark let out Tailow and Kirlia so that they could get some fresh air and walk/ fly with him and Mina. So it was rather obvious that at least he was a trainer.

Mark nodded politely to them as he walked along the road, forgetting that unspoken rule of eye contact between trainers who just met each other... Dear lord this character is more ditzy than I thought he would be.

((Conversation))

"I'm not quite sure what we can do with Stacey's Pokemon. A lot of them are Ground-weak, so the Flying types could help there, and I know she has a Gloom I can have Houndoom cover from the Wispaferyn...most of her team is slow and bulky, but right now they aren't bulky ENOUGH to deal with the more experienced Bandra Pokemon we keep running into."

"Then we should probably focus on bringing them up, strengthening them one at a time until they can stand toe-to-toe with the pokemon we will be encountering. Both Skarmory and Tailow can cover most of her team just because of their types, but they would be stretched rather thin if they had to protect most of a team... and Houndoom and Skarmory will sort of be preoccupied with the whole 'Bird Cavalry' thing."

Stacey was impressed that someone in the club found something, though it was not the Dive they were looking for. More searching was certainly in order. She continued her meal, and listened to what the others were saying. Geological topics were far from her area of expertise, and she didn't know what to say what such things came her way. By the time the lunch break was over, she was more than ready to get back to the search.

Mark and Mina:

((Trainers: ))

The trainers waved a greeting as they drew closer. "Hi! Are you two Pokemon trainers?"

Mina nodded. (She assumed they were just being polite by asking as she likewise had Pidgey out—not to mention her Pokeballs were plainly visible.)

The leftmost of the pair—wearing a stylish hat, scarf and very expensive-looking shoes—expanded a Pokeball.

"Want to battle?"

Mina turned to Mark and in an undertone asked, "Should we try a double battle, do you think?" Mina hesitated, because their Pokemon only had about a day's worth of experience working together. On the other hand, unless these were Bandra agents in disguise, Mina doubted it would be a life or death fight.

((Conversation: ))

"Then we should probably focus on bringing them up, strengthening them one at a time until they can stand toe-to-toe with the pokemon we will be encountering. Both Skarmory and Tailow can cover most of her team just because of their types, but they would be stretched rather thin if they had to protect most of a team... and Houndoom and Skarmory will sort of be preoccupied with the whole 'Bird Cavalry' thing."

"We can do that, but in the mean time it's not going to be enough just to protect them. We need a way to integrate them into our tactics; we can't be focusing all our effort on keeping them out of trouble. Her Snorlax is her hardest hitter, is there anything we can do to protect her? Maybe boost her attacks? Some of my Pokemon have Sand Attack, and Natu knows Confuse Ray now ((FINALLY!)), but those are easy to counter—all Bandra has to do is recall their Pokemon. I don't think she has anything with Motor Drive or Flash Fire or anything we could use to soak up attacks..."

----------------

Stacey:

((Encounter Roll = 80))

Your first stretch of searching after lunch turns up nothing more exciting than an old length of chain.

((Encounter Roll = 84))

Still nothing.

((Encounter Roll = 37))

You can make out the pale shape of a ship below you, but as you approach to explore the long shape of a Huntail eels out of a dark patch in the hull. Looking closer you can make out a couple of Clamperl, too.

Huntail: 94/94
Clamperl A: 56/56
Clamperl B: 70/70

((Flee?))

Mark nodded slowly, "Yeah, sounds like a good way to see how far we have to go..." He murmured back, setting down his bag and taking out his poke balls. "How many for each trainer?" He asked the girls.

((Conversation))

Some of my Pokemon have Sand Attack, and Natu knows Confuse Ray now ((FINALLY!)), but those are easy to counter—all Bandra has to do is recall their Pokemon."

"Then we should probably focus on getting status effect attacks, like my Lapras's sing. Something that doesn't go away just because they pull out... You have a pikachu right? Does it know thunder wave yet?"

"I don't think she has anything with Motor Drive or Flash Fire or anything we could use to soak up attacks..."

"The best I can do is Lucky Chant, which Kirlia can use to give our team a nice ward against the lucky hits of Bandra pokemon. Other than that, I don't really have too much in the way of 'Team buffs.' Maybe debuffs for the enemy would work just as well? Something like string shot, leer and growl... Oh wait, my Corphish does know protect, so I guess he could do a little something. You?"
