After that initial moment of shock, Mark would quickly blurt out new commands to both of his pokemon. "Okay, change of plans guys. Corphish, use protect and try to intercept any further attacks directed at Lapras. Lapras, use Ice Shard instead of water pulse this round!"

Mark:

Lapras uses Ice Shard!
Chevalin is hit for 10 damage!
Lapras takes 2 damage from Reflect Guard!

The Chevalin makes another attempt to maul Lapras, but Corphish manages to block the attack.


Chevalin's Shadow Gauge falls 2%!

Lapras: 58/107
Corphish: 67/70

Chevalin: 26/72 (Shadowed: 77%)

Nodding a bit, glad to see that his plan was working, Mark reached into his pack and retrieved a great ball. "Okay, Crophish, wait for now buddy. Lapras, one more ice shard should do it!" And, once that little chunk of ice hit the ice type, Mark would throw his pokeball to try and catch it!

Mark:

Lapras uses Ice Shard!
Chevalin is hit for 11 damage!
Lapras takes 2 damage from Reflect Guard!

You throw the Great Ball ((1 remaining)) and the rampaging Pokemon is briefly enveloped. The ball shakes once...twice...thrice...

DING! Chevalin was caught!

Chevalin (Shadowed: 77%) abuse (HP max down 30%, Crit ratio up 1 level)
Type: Dragon/Ice
Ability: Reflect Guard - 25% of direct damage (i.e. from attacks, not weather, status effects etc...) dealt to this Pokemon is inflicted on the inflictor. Damage dealt by Reflect Guard cannot exceed the Pokemon with Reflect Guard's HP before the attack. (IOW, if you have 1 HP and they deal 100 damage to you, they take 1 damage not 25.)
Gender: Female
Level: 35
Held Item: None  
Stats—
HP: 104 (72 due to injuries) (Down 30%)
Attack: 68
Def: 76
Sp. Attack: 61
Sp. Def: 62
Speed: 61

Moves:
Powder Snow (multi) (6 targets)
Roar
Gore*
Mirror Coat
Chomp*
Frustration (SM)

Would you like to give a nickname to Chevalin?

((Note: She's been badly abused in addition to being a little higher level than you can perfectly command, so you're going to need to make Obedience rolls to get her to follow commands until you can get her to trust you. That said, excellent catch roll! ))

About this time Nurse Joy comes back with a Chansey in tow, both of them wearing worried expressions.

"My goodness! Are you all right?" They hurry over—the Chansey winces a little bit on the broken glass—and start checking over you and your Pokemon. The Chansey produces some Softboiled eggs for Lapras and Corphish, restoring them, while the nurse looks for signs of frostbite until the ball warps off to storage.

"Oh dear...I'm going to need to do a system override to get her back into treatment...but never mind that now..." Nurse Joy shoo's you and your Pokemon into a different treatment room to finish the examine and sends another Chansey to grab the janitorial staff. One of them also brings you a full steaming pot of fresh coffee while she finishes up.

((You do NOT however lose a team slot while Chevalin is in treatment in this case unless for some reason you ask to do so; she'll just get put into Box Storage once her stat damage is healed.))

You and your Pokemon are given a clean bill of health about 11:30 AM. In that time it seems the mess in the back has impacted the rest of the Center somewhat, as there's a growing line in the front lobby. You spot Matt and Jack, who are waiting.

((Lapras: 107/107
Corphish: 70/70

Chevalin: 15/72 (Shadowed: 77%) Caught!))

When the nurse comes around, Mark beams at her proudly and goes over to rub along Lapras' neck and to pick up his new pokemon. Riding the high from the battle, he would cheerfully say, "Yeah, we're alright... just a few nibbles and... uh... not really sure how you would define that reflective ability's damage. But yeah, we're okay. Did anyone else get hurt?" He would ask the nurse, holding Chevlain's pokeball in hand, and a thankful nod to the nurse's pokemon as she goes around healing his battered pokemon.

Before he let them take Chevlain away, though, Mark would take a moment to hold the poke ball in his hands and tell her, "Hey you... I don't know who did this to you, and I don't think that I want to, but I want you to know that this won't happen to you again... I promise. I will treat you right, and I won't let anyone hurt you like this. Rest well, recover... and I'll see you soon. Alright?" And with that, he would hand his new pokemon over to Nurse Joy and say, "Take good care of her please... she deserves it."

The coffee would soon become Mark's baby, and he would guard it jealously from all of the other trainers and staff that tried to get some. In his words, (to defend this greed), Mark would tell them, "H-Hey, now... you aren't the o-one keeping a purple mareep from stealing the only thing keeping you awake f-for karaoke night."

Of course, nursing coffee was a quite demanding task, as was drawing once more in his book. This time, he was busying himself with drawing Chevlain and a small, silly comic of Chansea trying to feed Lapras magical eggs (which the water pokemon obviously wasn't trusting). His pleasant move kept him about as oblivious to the presence of the other trainers as his earlier depressive one had kept him of Mina.

Squinting That guy looks familiar....Stepping closer
"You're....Mark right? You were with that girl that helped me with the Murkrow attack I had the day before. Were you here this whole time? What's caused the Center to be so unnaturally busy today? Did something happen? Was it...Looking around as I lean in...the BAD guys?"
It looked like it'd be a while before I'd be able to get my party healed up. Especially with the nurses' Chansey wobbling around like it'd stepped on tacks or something.

"Murkrow, huh? I had issues with some Murkrow as well. And you two know each other?"

Mark would look up as both Jack and Matt pop up beside him almost simultaneously, just a bit of surprise on his face as he looks at them. "U-Um... hey there guys." He says, waiting for the ink to dry before closing his journal once again. To Matt, he answers, "No, no bad guys... just a pokemon that was lashing out." He explained with a sigh, before adding, "A-Also, the ranger still has your reward for helping with that smuggler situation. You should totally pick that up."

Looking at Jack now, Mark would give him a little grin and a wave and say, "And h-hello again! Um... yeah, I helped this guy out after a flock of murcrow tried to eat his... well everything, but face just wounds better. What's up?"

"Yes I was a bit cocky when attempting to catch a single Murkrow out of a whole flock of them and some Taillow that were eating bird feed on the ground near the park. My name's Matt, pleasure to meet you mister....?"

Odd, I don't recall Mark or Mina mentioning this guy. I'm sure they might have...My head starts throbbing and I subconsciously put my head up to my temple...must have hit my head harder than I thought trying to swim to shore....

"Mister? I don't, well, uh. Anyway, my name's Jack. Nice to meet ya!" Jack then turns to Mark. "Well, nothing's up. Just trying to get Lee healed up from his recent battle." Jack completely forgets that Mark wouldn't know who this Lee is.

"Things are going alright, went on a little job, caught myself a Poliwag and came back to heal the party up. She slapped the heck out of my Weepinbell, real scrappy lil thing. Where about did you say this Ranger was Mark? I think I'll take you up on that offer of seeing them. Oh, and it was a pleasure to make your acquaintance Jack."

"I'' pretty sure that the ranger's station is to the north, but y-you should be able to get a map and better directions from nurse Joy when you get your pokemon healed." Mark told Matt, giving him a grin and adding, "When you get there... um... it's not just a money reward. They have a few items that could be useful too!"

As if remembering something, Mark pulls out his phone and says, "Oh, Jack! Mina and I were going to Karaoke night soon... would you like to join us?" After asking, Mark would dial Mina's number and sip coffee while he waits for her to answer. They had just made plans to practice, after all... and with all of that caffeine in his system, well, Mark was looking a bit more chipper!

Mina:

It took Mina a little while to get what she wanted across, then a little more to work out the specifics of the 'wager' since 'I want Berries I don't have yet' was not very specific and her opponent didn't necessarily want the same in return. But eventually they got the specifics out of the way—2 of Pokemon each, no more than two item uses per trainer discounting held items—called out their Pokemon and got down to the actual battle.

((Battle 1:
Mina's wager – 2 Oran Berries
Breeder Joe's wager – 1 Nanab, 1 Pinap, and 1 Pomeg Berry))

Mina's first battle was a Breeder – part of his wager was a Pomeg (which she already had) but as he'd been nice enough to put up with her more-or-less grabbing him at random and her weird wager request, she overlooked it. Figuring Pikachu could use some battle practice (the poor thing barely got out with all those Geodude the Bandra Grunts used) Mina sent her out. Her opponent—he'd introduced himself simply as Joe—sent out a Clefairy.

Pikachu uses Rock Smash!
It's super effective!
Clefairy is hit for 18 damage!

Clefairy uses Sing!
Pikachu fell Asleep!

Mina calls for Pikachu to use Rock Smash!
Pikachu still sleeps!

Clefairy uses Minimize!
Clefairy's Evasion rises!

Mina was thinking hard. If that Clefairy got itself small enough, her Pikachu would never be able to hit it. On the other hand, her Pokemon hadn't actually taken any damage yet, so...

Mina calls for Pikachu to use Rock Smash!

This time Pikachu woke up, and eagerly swung a tiny paw in Clefairy's direction...a little too eagerly as she missed by a wide margin. The Clefairy shrank down in size again.

"Good girl, try again!" Mina called.

Pikachu uses Rock Smash!
It's super effective!
Clefairy is hit for 18 damage!
Clefairy's Defense falls!

This time Pikachu managed to connect, and very solidly, but Joe had apparently had enough of having his Clefairy shrink...

Clefairy uses Pound!
Pikachu is hit for 19 damage!

Mina flinched; technically, the hit wasn't that much worse than what her own Pokemon was landing. But Pikachu wasn't nearly so bulky...

One more try and then switch, I think.

Pikachu uses Rock Smash!
Attack missed!

Clefairy uses Pound!
Pikachu is hit for 19 damage!
Clefairy was Paralyzed by Pikachu's Voltage!
It may not attack!

Mina called back Pikachu and sent out Houndoom, who promptly took another Pound from the Clefairy.

Houndoom is hit for 11 damage!

"Odor Sleuth!" Mina called.

"You're a cruel, cruel woman." Joe remarked.

"Sorry," Mina apologized.

"Don't be. Sing!"

Houndoom uses Odor Sleuth!

Clefairy uses Sing!
Houndoom fell Asleep!

"Here we go again," Mina sung under her breath, to the tune of 'Turn the Beat Around'. "Wake up! Rock Smash!"

Houndoom snoozed through another Pound ((11 damage)) and Mina was starting to get anxious. "Wake up! Again!" And another. ((10 damage)) Mina was starting to wonder if the Clefairy was going to straight-up knock him unconscious when he finally awoke and slammed the Normal type hard in the face.

Houndoom uses Rock Smash!
It's super effective!
Clefairy is hit for 59 damage!
Clefairy faints!

Finally!

"I was going to give Magby some practice, but since you're going to play rough..."

Hearing this Mina opted to keep Houndoom—her more practiced battler—in...and almost instantly regretted it as a Marill took shape out of Joe's second Pokeball.

Drat. Water type.

"Bite!"

"Aqua Ring!"

Okay, he's trying to get set up again. Mina tried to tell herself to calm down; it wasn't working.

Houndoom uses Bite!
Marill is hit for 39 damage!

Marill uses Aqua Ring!
Marill restores 5 HP!

"Ouch," Joe remarked. Plainly he hadn't been expecting that to hit so hard.

"Again! Quickly!" Mina wasn't sure why she'd bothered to add that last part, as Houndoom was obviously much, much faster than the Marill...

Houndoom uses Bite!
Critical hit!
Marill is hit for 76 damage!
Marill faints!

((Pikachu: 19/57
Houndoom: 62/94

Clefairy: 0/74
Marill: 0/87))

Mina blinked as the battle was suddenly over. Well that was fast... "Good job Houndoom!" Mina petted him before recalling him, shook hands with her opponent, collected her winnings and slipped over to the Pokemon Center before looking for her next intended victim. ((+1 Nanab, +1 Pinap, +1 Pomeg Berries)) Scanning her new acquisitions, Mina was privately disappointed; they didn't appear to be good for much of anything...their growth time was short; maybe they could be an emergency food source? Wild Pokemon bribe? She'd have to think about it, and keep trying for some Pecha Berries or something of the sort...

((Battle 2:
Mina's wager – Charti Berry
Coordinator Kai's wager - Kebia Berry))

Mina's second opponent was somewhat easier to find, as by now word had spread and she didn't have to take as much time to explain what she wanted. Coordinator Kai was dressed in mostly dark purples and greens, in clothing pattered like a snake's; Mina hadn't really seen the appeal in dressing to look like a Pokemon, but she supposed it was a Contest thing. But given that color scheme, she was not overly surprised when he send out a Nidorina.

Mina sent out Sandshrew. Admittedly her complete lack of Ground-based damaging attacks was a disadvantage, but she needed some battle time too.

Kai looked bored; he checked his nails and lazily ordered a Double Kick. Mina called for Defense Curl, hoping she could use Joe's earlier strategy to her advantage.

Nidorina uses Double Kick!
Sandshrew is hit for 7 damage!
Sandshrew is hit for 7 damage!

Sandshrew uses Defense Curl!
Sandshrew's Defense rises!

Mina debated doing that again; even without Defense Curl the damaged Sandshrew had taken was lackluster, and there was nothing stopping Kai from switching to an Oddish and ignoring all her Defense boosts...

but it would be a shame to have had that attack be a waste... Mina smiled. "Rollout!"

"Double Kick again." Kai still seemed to be paying more attention to his fingernails than his Pokemon.

Nidorina uses Double Kick!
Sandshrew is hit for 4 damage!
Critical hit!
Sandshrew is hit for 14 damage!

Sandshrew uses Rollout!
Nidorina is hit for 14 damage!

"Again!"

"Likewise."

Nidorina uses Double Kick!
Sandshrew is hit for 5 damage!
Sandshrew is hit for 4 damage!

Sandshrew uses Rollout!
Nidorina is hit for 23 damage!

"Keep at it!"

Kai just sighed, as though he were sitting through a speech he had no interest in.

Nidorina uses Double Kick!
Sandshrew is hit for 5 damage!
Sandshrew is hit for 5 damage!

Sandshrew was now spinning so fast Mina couldn't see her swallow her Oran Berry, but her Pokedex informed her of its effects. ((+10 HP, -held Oran Berry))

Sandshrew uses Rollout!
Nidorina is hit for 49 damage!
Nidorina faints!

Kai rolled his eyes and sent out an Ekans. It moved with such confidence, even Mina felt a little intimidated. ((Sandshrew's Attack down 1 level from Intimidate.))

Ekans uses Bite!
Sandshrew is hit for 7 damage!
Sandshrew flinched!

Mina winced. Drat. One hit could have ended the battle right there. Mina doubted Sandshrew was going to be able to finish this, but hopefully she could still get some damage in before she went down...

"Rollout again!"

"Bite."

Ekans uses Bite!
Sandshrew is hit for 6 damage!

Sandshrew uses Rollout!
Ekans is hit for 10 damage!

Ekans uses Bite!
Sandshrew is hit for 6 damage!
Sandshrew flinches!

Sandshrew went down after that and Mina (after some brief mental debate) sent out Pikachu, restored from her earlier battle thanks to the Pokemon Center. Her little yellow Electric type was a good deal faster, and Thundershock wouldn't be affected by Intimidate.

Pikachu uses Thundershock!
Critical hit!
Ekans is hit for 22 damage!

Ekans uses Glare!
Attack missed!

"Yes! Good job Pikachu!" Mina pumped a fist and then reminded herself the battle wasn't over yet.

Pikachu uses Thundershock!
Ekans is hit for 10 damage!

Ekans uses Acid!
Pikachu is hit for 13 damage!

The Pokemon traded attacks a few more rounds before the Ekans finally collapsed:

Pikachu uses Thundershock!
Ekans is hit for 12 damage!
Pikachu's Shell Bell restored 1 HP! ((Oh yay. ))

Ekans uses Acid!
Pikachu is hit for 15 damage!

Pikachu uses Thundershock!
Ekans is hit for 11 damage!
Ekans faints!
Pikachu's Shell Bell restored 1 HP!


((Sandshrew: 0/62
Pikachu: 31/57

Nidorina: 0/79
Ekans: 0/62))

Even after she'd collected her victory Berry, Kai still gave the impression he had better things to do. ((+1 Kebia Berry)) A quick scan of the Berry told Mina it probably wasn't going to be useful for her (Poison attacks? Well if I ever get a Grass type...) but Pikachu had gone up a level:

Pikachu
Type: Electric
Ability: Voltage
Gender: Female
Level: 22
Held Item: Shell Bell
Stats—
HP: 54+2+3
Attack: 36+2
Def: 25
Sp. Attack: 33+5
Sp. Def: 29
Speed: 51+4+3

Moves:
Encore
Thundershock
Thunder Wave
Quick Attack
Rock Smash (HM)
Double Team

Mina checked the time; it was getting closer to noon but she probably had time for one more battle before she was supposed to meet up with Mark. She should also look into food in the near future but her stomach was getting upset—most likely from the stress of battling—so she put that off for now.

For some reason there was a Chansey running the healing machine, but Mina wrote it off as Nurse Joy being busy with something else and didn't worry about it much. She went out to find another opponent—her last one, since she was running low on time.

((Battle 3:
Mina's wager – Rare Candy
Rich Boy Fern's wager - Chilan Berry))

Her final opponent was expensively dressed—white suit, gold jewelry, he even carried a fancily-carved cane. This fight was three-on-three; Mina hoped that this fight would be over quickly so she could catch up with Mark soon...hopes that were quickly dashed when her opponent's first Pokemon turned out to be a Quagsire.

And me with no Grass type!

Pikachu would be useless for this fight; Sandshrew was at a disadvantage, and none of the rest had any real strengths for that typing. She'd had had Natu try to wear it down with Nightshade but he, of course, was still in the Pokemon Center.

The best she could do was try for some resistance, so she sent out Pidgey.

Pidgey uses Gust!
Quagsire is hit for 14 damage!

Quagsire uses Amnesia!
Quagsire's Special Defense rose sharply!

Well that's going to be annoying...let's switch it up. "Quick Attack!" Pity he didn't have Wing Attack...

Pidgey uses Quick Attack!
Quagsire is hit for 14 damage!

Quagsire uses Slam!
Pidgey is hit for 33 damage!

Mina winced; in one attack Pidgey had taken more damage than he could dish out in two...and he wasn't as sturdy as his opponent in the first place.

Wait... "Featherdance!"

Pidgey uses Featherdance!
Quagsire's Attack falls sharply!

Quagsire uses Slam!
Pidgey is hit for 17 damage!

Pidgey swallowed his Oran Berry and his movements seemed to come easier. ((+10 HP, 27 total)) "Now hit it again!"

Pidgey uses Quick Attack!
Quagsire is hit for 12 damage!

Quagsire uses Slam!
Pidgey is hit for 15 damage!

Pidgey uses Quick Attack!
Quagsire is hit for 14 damage!

Quagsire uses Slam!
Attack missed!

Pidgey uses Quick Attack!
Quagsire is hit for 13 damage!

Quagsire uses Slam!
Attack missed!

Pidgey uses Quick Attack!

But her opponent had apparently gotten fed up with his Pokemon going wide of the mark, and had called it back to reveal...

A Rock type. OF COURSE he has a Rock type, what was I thinking trying to train a Flying type in this region?!!

Arkhiti is hit for 14 damage!
Critical hit!
It's not very effective...

Two can play at that game...

Mina called back Pidgey and sent out Oodramer, praying that he could withstand a few attacks, because he was going to need to...

Arkhiti uses Ancient Power!
Oodramer is hit for 17 damage!

"Vortex!" It was a measure of just how backed-into-a-corner Mina felt that she was even considering the move. In fact she regretted it almost as soon as it was out of her mouth, but she rationalized that the Pokemon Center was right there...and she really didn't want him to swap back to Quagsire right now.

Oodramer uses Vortex!
Arkhiti is hit for 17 damage!
Arkhiti's Shadow Gauge raises by 3%!
Arkhiti is trapped by the vortex!

Wow that thing is slow. Not many Pokemon were slower than her poor Spectral type, even if she was trying to make improvements in that area... ((Speed 28 at level 25...should have put more points there, Fern! ))

Her opponent frowned. "That's a Spectral type!"

Mina felt like she shouldn't be admitting it (surely he had a Pokedex? Lack of knowledge because he refused it should be his own fault...) but she nodded.

Arkhiti uses Ancient Power!
Oodramer is hit for 19 damage!
Arkhiti's Attack rises!
Arkhiti's Defense rises!
Arkhiti's Special Attack rises!
Arkhiti's Special Defense rises!
Arkhiti's Speed rises!

((NOW Arkhiti is faster. ))

Arkhiti's Shadow Gauge falls 2%!

Arkhiti is damaged for 4 HP by the vortex!
Arkhiti's Shadow Gauge rises by 1%!

"Bubblebeam!"

Oodramer's Quick Claw activated!

Oodramer uses Bubblebeam!
Arkhiti is hit for 35 damage!
Arkhiti faints! ((SO close to bad bad things happening... So very close!))

Grumbling—and surprisingly pale—her opponent recalled the rock type and sent out a Beedrill. Feeling slightly better about the outcome of this battle, Mina used her League-sanction swap opportunity to send out Houndoom.

Cruel, cruel woman, I know!

Her opponent took one look and immediately switched the Beedrill out again.

Houndoom uses Ember!
Quagsire is hit for 10 damage!
It's not very effective...

Mina relaxed. We've got this.

"Bite!"

Rich Boy Fern used a Potion!
Quagsire's HP was restored by 20! ((33 total))

Houndoom uses Bite!
Quagsire is hit for 34 damage!
Quagsire faints!

Out came the Beedrill again.

"Now Ember!"

Houndoom uses Ember!
Beedrill is hit for 54 damage!
It's super effective!

Beedrill uses Twineedle!
Houndoom is hit for 13 damage!
Houndoom is hit for 13 damage!
Hit two times!

Her opponent was glaring. "I concede."

The Beedrill was recalled with ill grace and came over. Mina was expecting a handshake, so she almost didn't duck when he tried to slap her. The blow jarred her and messed her hair a little. Houndoom—who was still out—growled, and the other trainer seemed to remember himself. "Do you have any idea what that Vortex could have done to my Pokemon?!!"

Mina's expression was confused, slightly frightened, and more than a little blank. Yes, it was a few points on the Shadow Gauge, which wasn't very nice, but was it significantly worse than burning or poisoning the other Pokemon? Then again, there had been side effects before this...

Mina's thought process hadn't gotten much further than hoping the angry trainer would elaborate, but he just snarled and threw the Chilan Berry at her—her winnings, such as they were—and stormed off.

Maybe, I should take some time out to experiment with that attack later...

((Pidgey: 12/67
Oodramer: 44/80
Houndoom: 68/94

Quagsire: 0/90
Arkhiti: 0/70 (Shadowed 2%)
Beedrill: 21/75))

Mina made her way to the Pokemon Center, still feeling a little off balance.

((Total:
+1 Nanab
+1 Pinap
+1 Pomeg
+1 Kebia
+1 Chilan
-2 Oran Berries (Pidgey and Sandshrew's Held Items)))

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

Everyone:

Mina arrived to find the same line everyone else had run into, as well as everyone else. Her Pokedex informed her she was receiving a call and that it was from Mark, but as he was in sight now, she just caught his attention and waved, then held up a finger. "Just a sec."

Showing a complete disregard for social niceties like saying 'hello', Mina fished Matt's Bounty Claim Form out of her pack. "Here!" She stuffed it in his direction with haste; it had felt like she'd had a hot brand in her pack ever since she'd met with the Ranger. "Ranger Wain told me what this is worth; I can't in good conscience accept this from you."

((-Matt's Bounty Claim Form for Mina,
+Bounty Claim Form for Matt))

"Well hello to you too Mina, and thank you, a little extra cash is always handy to have. I suppose you're here to heal your team up too? Seems everyone is," I say scratching my head and looking around. Sheesh, how much longer till we can see Nurse Joy? So many people here today, that battle arena for food must be quite busy today, or perhaps there's some festival going on at the park. Come to think of it, I didn't really pay attention to any posters outside, nor did I read any local newspapers. I fiddled around with my pokedex, completely forgetting about the new friends and randomly started asking it questions like, "Pokedex, are there any events being held in this region today? What's the news? Weather? Sports? Is there a newspaper in case you don't have this information? Pokedex?! Can you hear me now Pokedex?! Hello?? Hello???"

Everyone:

Matt gets a couple of weird looks from trainers waiting. ((You don't have an App for that. Note to self: add a list of Apps known to everyone's character sheet.))

"There was Karaoke Night tonight," Mina offered, not sure if that was something the much older man would be interested in. "Mark and I are going."

The line is moving just not very fast; judging by the lack of concern (and some bits of conversation) there isn't any major emergency responsible, just a slowdown from the nurse being preoccupied earlier with the Pokemon that broke loose, coupled by the normal lunch rush at the bar and some crazy black-haired girl battling people for Berries.

Well I guess I can come back after seeing the Ranger, hopefully the crowd will lessen by the time I get back. As I make my way outside I look around and ask various strangers if they've seen a Ranger around town and head in the direction pointed or instructed.

Matt:

You leave the Pokemon Center and head outside; after asking around a little you're pointed to the bar, where you find Ranger Wain seated at a table finishing his lunch and chatting with Viola over his Styler. There's another battle going on in the background; apparently the long line at the Center isn't deterring the local trainers.

"So, uh, Mark was mentioning a Karaoke thing going on that you two were going to go practice on. Offered to have me join. Not sure if he meant in the song, or just as someone to have around, but I think I'd prefer the someone to have around bit. Not sure I want to sing. Maybe the mood might hit me, but it hasn't yet."
