"Thank you, but I'm quite alright for now. I was wondering how these missing pokemon get returned to their owners? I'd imagine there's some pokedex app for that sort of thing? Else I'd like to get flyers out so that all these poor pokemon get returned properly. Nurse Joy mentioned that Bandra can heal their pokemon like any other trainer.... I'm curious... on how they can be healed when in their pokeball yet? Aren't they brought out and examined? Wouldn't any staff at one of these facilities be able to tell if a pokemon is mistreated, much less stolen from their original owner? You might say I'm a bit perplexed about these Bandra people... It's a bit inconceivable that ordinary towns folk would just randomly join an organization that's out to hurt people whom may be friends or family to those in the group. By the way, was any useful information obtained from the ones we captured? A combination for a lock for example? Or what their activities might be?"

((The tiles were supposed to be put into my pack, along with the journal detailing all of the research put into them. If there is info on troop movements and there is other journal stuff in there, Mark will read over it and take pictures of everything research related, and give the journal to ranger Wane so that the ranger has all of the info on Bandra movements Mark can give him.

I'll also take a revive, but that's about it on top of the gems and tiles that I already have.))

Focusing back in when he feels that mental conversation, Mark would look at Kirlia and tilt his head to the side as he asks, "Wait, what? Huh? What isn't there?" That was an odd thing for Lapras to be thinking about.

"Thank you, but I'm quite alright for now. I was wondering how these missing pokemon get returned to their owners? I'd imagine there's some pokedex app for that sort of thing? Else I'd like to get flyers out so that all these poor pokemon get returned properly.“

“If the trainer has their number on record we just call them and tell them to pick up their Pokémon, otherwise the Pokémon Centers usually get in contact with the person and one of the Nurse Joys lets them know,” the Ranger answers with his usual drawl. “Or did you mean how do we figure out they’re stolen in the first place? There is an App for that, I can download it to your Pokédex if you want.”

"Nurse Joy mentioned that Bandra can heal their pokemon like any other trainer.... I'm curious... on how they can be healed when in their pokeball yet? Aren't they brought out and examined? Wouldn't any staff at one of these facilities be able to tell if a pokemon is mistreated, much less stolen from their original owner?"

Ranger Wain peers at you with confused concern. “How long have you been a Pokémon trainer that you’ve never seen the Pokémon Center healing machines?”

((OoC it’s like in the handhelds – your Pokéballs go on the little platform and the machine goes ding-ding-ding-a-ling and then they’re all healed. Of normal, non-serious damage anyway.))

The Ranger’s Styler bleeps as Viola chimes in. “Some of these creatures are twenty feet long or more. Some of them don’t like being out of water or in bright spaces. Some of them don’t like people, or don’t like unfamiliar people, or don’t like being around other Pokémon. Some of them will eat other Pokémon given a chance. Almost ALL of them have powers that could seriously hurt people or other Pokémon, or damage buildings if they panic and start attacking.” Even through the distortion of the Styler her voice has a long-suffering quality. “We don’t do the Pokémon any favors by having strange people call them out in a strange environment when they may already be under stress from injuries. So if the Pokémon don’t need us to do that, we don’t!

“New catches will be taken out and given basic immunization shots when possible. The nurses are trained to look for severe damage on the machine readouts the same as on the Pokémon’s bodies, same for the trainer’s information recorded in the Pokéballs, so if the Pokémon is seriously injured ((read: stat damage, broken bones and such)) then yes, the nurse will take them out for more intensive treatment. If that happens, you won’t get their ball back ((and by extension you can’t swap their ball for a different one)) until they’ve recovered, so try not to let them get badly hurt, all right?”

"You might say I'm a bit perplexed about these Bandra people... It's a bit inconceivable that ordinary towns folk would just randomly join an organization that's out to hurt people whom may be friends or family to those in the group."

The Ranger gives you a look. “Is it now? You never had bullies growing up? Never knew anyone who hurt someone because they thought it was fun, or because they wanted to fit in with the wrong crowd? There are lots of people like that. More who will join because they’re scared, and they don’t want to end up on the losing side of the war. That’s why it’s important to stand up to Bandra – if someone went and showed them Bandra isn’t the unstoppable force they think it is, more of them would quit and go back to whatever it was they did before they joined.”

"By the way, was any useful information obtained from the ones we captured? A combination for a lock for example? Or what their activities might be?"

“Not really, at least not yet. They’re caterwauling about their Taskmaster; I guess you didn’t get their leader. They were definitely dealing with the stolen chaff Pokémon but it sounds like their leader is getting most of those. I did get that none of the Pokémon that go to him come back.” He pauses meaningfully. “Hopefully you three bringing back these Grunts slowed that down a little, but pardon me for saying that it’s not going to stop until someone brings that Taskmaster to…task.”

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

Mark:

((What journal??? The Note on sacrifices is just a page. Regardless, everything should be moved now, so let me know if I missed anything.))

<Nothing. That’s what I’m trying to—>

Kirlia cuts off abruptly as she is interrupted by a low growl.

(OoC~ I tried to copy and answer the questions, then realized that in doing so, it sorta makes the copied questions you answered sound goofy, I tried to fix it... prolly failed at that too.... like summoning a pokemon in the darkness! XD )

“If the trainer has their number on record we just call them and tell them to pick up their Pokémon, otherwise the Pokémon Centers usually get in contact with the person and one of the Nurse Joys lets them know,” the Ranger answers with his usual drawl. “Or did you mean how do we figure out they’re stolen in the first place?

"Sure I guess that'll be useful."

Ranger Wain peers at you with confused concern. “How long have you been a Pokémon trainer that you’ve never seen the Pokémon Center healing machines?”

Laughing"No, no, no, I mean if these Bandra people have to come all the way to town...with stolen pokemon... how is it they can walk in, get a stolen pokemon healed up, without anyone knowing if people have apps about stolen pokemon? I'd naturally figure that a facility like the healing center, of ALL places, would have such a simplistic app already installed so as to discover Bandra agents and report them ASAP. More of a... 'Do Bandra goons have their own PokeCenter healing contraption?' sort of question. My apologies."

The Ranger’s Styler bleeps as Viola chimes in. “Some of these creatures are twenty feet long or more. Some of them don’t like being out of water or in bright spaces.

"I had figured that anyone whom heard of the old Team Rocket would have figured out that crime doesn't pay."I say amused."They had to of been all over the news, even to far away places like this, I had figured they were world reknown. At least they gave the sort of impression that they were, taking over Saffron City's tower and all that. I don't recall them having any shadowed pokemon like these Bandra people do though. Suppose new crime needs new weapons."

((Oh, nope. Just the page with the sacrifice poem on it then. Sorry. >.>)

Mark would become a bit more alert as he hears that growl, and looks where he heard it coming from. "No, that's definitely s-something Kirlia." He would say, a bit startled.

Matt:

The Ranger downloads the App onto your Pokédex. ((You now have the App to check if the trainer info on a Pokéball has been tampered with. ))

"No, no, no, I mean if these Bandra people have to come all the way to town...with stolen pokemon... how is it they can walk in, get a stolen pokemon healed up, without anyone knowing if people have apps about stolen pokemon? I'd naturally figure that a facility like the healing center, of ALL places, would have such a simplistic app already installed so as to discover Bandra agents and report them ASAP.”

“That’s…a couple of things. First of all, the software for your Pokédex is not the same as the software for the healing machines. The healing machines can’t use that App, same reason the refrigerator can’t. Some models have similar software installed but it’s mostly out of date because we’ve been at war for seven years.”

Viola chimes in again. “Software like that has to be updated regularly because people find ways around it – like anti-virus programs. And not all Bandra use stolen Pokémon in the first place – most of the Grunts don’t, for example.”

“More of a... 'Do Bandra goons have their own PokeCenter healing contraption?' sort of question. My apologies."

The Ranger's tone is wry as he responds. “They’re in control of half the region, I’d be surprised if they don’t have at least one.”

"I had figured that anyone whom heard of the old Team Rocket would have figured out that crime doesn't pay. They had to of been all over the news, even to far away places like this, I had figured they were world reknown. At least they gave the sort of impression that they were, taking over Saffron City's tower and all that. I don't recall them having any shadowed pokemon like these Bandra people do though. Suppose new crime needs new weapons."

“Believe it or not hardly anyone heard of Team Rocket this far out in the boondocks – Helnith was never exactly on the beaten trail, the war just made it worse. There might have been a news story or two but we got just as much news when someone won the Kanto League Championship. I guess it’s just as well. You’d be surprised how many copycats will see something on the news and decide they want to try it out themselves.” Ranger Wain shakes his head. “Shadowing is a natural phenomenon though; Spectral-type Pokémon can cause Shadowing like Fire Pokémon cause burns, Pokémon can be Shadowed if they’re abused, and Pokémon in the Spectral Dimension get Shadowed over time if they’re not Spectral types. Bandra might weaponize it, but they aren’t the first or the only ones.”

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

Mark:

Still curious, Lapras squirts a stream of water at the patch of grass to flatten it down, prompting a four-legged dark shape to leap out and shake itself, giving you a clearer view and it looks like – is that an Umbreon?



It is! The Pokédex says it’s wild, but it also contradictingly shows that the Pokemon has signs that someone’s trained it at one point. The Dark type is definitely mad at you now, though.

Umbreon: 79/79

"I see. Thank you for your time in explaining that to me sir.I hope those lost pokemon get returned to their trainers.... especially that Gloom. If there's anything you need assistance with, let me know. I'll try and keep in touch, may see if we can't get more Bandra goons for you." I say with a wave as I exit his office. Thinking to myself I head over to the PokeMart and sell the left over mining kits leaving one for myself. I ask the clerk for around 2 revives, 4 potions, and 3 super potions if they have them in stock (and if I can afford them ;P ) before heading back to the Center to meet up with Mina and Mark.

Blinking twice, Mark would stagger up to his feet and hold out his hand, telling the dark fox, "Whoa, whoa! Easy there bud... uh..." To Kirlia, he mentally says, <I'd say that's certainly something! So you can't detect dark types... good to know.>

Seeing that the umbreon was kinda just extra mad, Mark says to his pokemon, "Alright guys, don't think I can talk this one down. Lapras, use sing and Kirlia, use lucky chant." A wild umbreon. Recently released? Maybe?

Matt:

((Just checking: your starting gear included a Mining Kit from the cruise line; are you keeping back a spare so you’ll have two? It’s fine either way, I just want to be clear. ))

The clerk at the PokéMart considers the Mining Kits for a moment, muttering about specialized equipment and being used before offering you 1500 PD for each of them, but tells you you might be able to get a better offer from the Geology Club in Tidepath.

When you ask after Revives, you are informed regretfully that the Mart doesn’t have those in stock. Because of the war, they’re in high demand everywhere, and since they’re mined, not manufactured, it isn’t possible to simply increase production at a factory somewhere to keep up with demand. The clerk tells you somewhat ruefully that they’ve gotten rare enough that Trainer Hill sometimes awards them as prizes, and you’d have a better chance digging them up yourself than finding them on a store shelf.

((6950 - 3300 PD for 3 Super Potions and 4 Potions total = 3650 PD remaining, NOT counting money from the Mining Kits.))

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

Mark:

Kirlia uses Lucky Chant!

Lapras uses Sing!
Umbreon fell Asleep!

Umbreon is asleep!
Umbreon wakes up! ((Lousy roll! ))
Umbreon uses Pursuit!
It’s super effective!
Kirlia is hit for 36 damage!

You can hear – and to a lesser extent feel – Kirlia’s loud mental OW! and the pain provoking this reaction.

((Lucky Chant in effect, rounds remaining: 4

Kirlia: 27/63
Lapras: 116/116

Umbreon: 79/79))
