(Trying to increase loylaty for both Shiranui and newly caught Sandygast. Also attempted some work on Charisma skill)
The storm had subsided and Skids had headed out of the town. As much as he would've liked to have stayed around, he knew that his new companion might not be well received. For some reason, he had a feeling that no one in town would give any positive reactions to the strange pokemon he found. With how they all reacted to Shiranui, he just had the feeling that the odd sand castle looking pokemon would be just as poorly received. Coming to a pause in the woods, he glanced back at the town, a bit nervous but he gave a sigh. Hoping that he was far enough away from town to where people wouldn't come across his two companions and himself.
He wanted to make sure that the new member wasn't terrified with his choice. Was it the rest choice? He did catch them when they weren't looking. Looking down at the red and white pokeball, he raised a brow at it in worry. Or would they lash out? As he held the pokeball, he noticed that his bandaged hand had finally stopped bleed. So removing the piece of cloth, he looked at the hole marks. Taking note of the slightly burned skin around the holes. So strange...he didn't know what Shiranui did besides bite him. But no part of him thought that was strange. Some part of him told him it was something that was normal, a ability or power that was natural to Shiranui. Hm..strange indeed.
Taking a deep breathe, he opened the pokeball and the red light came out. Taking shape on the ground before him and revealing the sand like pokemon. At first, the sandygast looked around. Why did it see green things? Trees....wait...what happened to the building? The pokemon made a startled sound and started to spin in circles,stubby arms raised up in the air as they moved around.
"Hey, hey. It's okay, calm down." Skids urged gently as he knelt down. "DOn't worry, nothing bad is gonna happen.."
A familiar voice made the sandygast pause and they looked up at him with white eyes that blinked in surprise. Wait, this guy was with em still? What happened? She recalled the storm and hiding underneath his legs. But why was everything black after that? It was then she took note of the round object in his wounded hand and it hit her. She had been caught!! Captured by the human?! Stubby arms were folded as she turned round and had her back facing him.
"You're not happy with this huh?" Skids asked as he took a seat behind her, he noticed her shovel bob up an down as she nodded. "I'm sorry. I thought this would be a better spot for ya last night. I figured it was quieter for ya than listening to that loud storm."
Sandygast tilted her body somewhat as she looked at Skids, turning round fully. She wasn't quite sure on all of his words but part of her had a feeling from his tone of voice that he was apologetic. They were trying to explain something. Though she wasn't one hundred percent sure. She still looked away from him still, not sure on what she wanted to do in regards to the human. She could just get him to stick their hand in her mouth and she could drain em to where she could get away from him. Wait...would that even work? No. Probably woudn't work. She didn't want to hurt the guy, he showed her so much kindness last night. Though....that was for last night...but he also retrieved her shovel for her, even when she wasn't sure if he was actually doing that.
Skids stared down at the pokemon, taking note of how uncertain and lost to thought it seemed. Putting the pokeball away, he pulled out another one and released Shiranui. The pup landed and gave a pleased bark though it took notice of the sandygast and gave a groan. Looking to Skids with eyes slightly narrowed."Really?!!"
Shiranui questioned, clearly not pleased.
"Come on bud, she's with us now. Besides, I know something we can do." Skids commented as he patted the demon pup. "Let's play a game."
The sandygast looked up at the human, her attention pulled from her thoughts. Shiranui noticed the sandygast's sudden movements but he kept himself still and returned his gaze to Skids."Game? What game? Is it horde all the items possible? OH! Or startle the human by the berries?"
Sandygast questioned as she moved a little closer to Skids' shoes.
Her curiosity in a firm grasp as she stared up at him. Shiranui was a bit...confused by her questions. Horde as many items as possible? Scare humans on purpose? What games did she play?! Little did the pup know, that the sandygast had been living under that shed for a while with that purrloin and fungoose. She was sometimes brought out with the purrloin when he went searching for items and while she helped him out, the feline never did like it when she tried to touch any of them afterwards. The same went for when they went looking for food and often, her food ended up being part of the fungoose's share; whom hardly ever left their spot under the shed.
Skids' smile grew as he looked down at the two pokemon. It seems they were onboard and he couldn't help but feel great with that in mind. His smile turned into a grin as he put Shiranui's ball away and folded his arms.
"Hide and seek!" Skids announced.
Shiranui started to bounce up and down, letting out excited barks of glee. He knew this game!! HE knew this game!! He played it all the time with his siblings. The sandygast however, tilted her body to the side. Back to being confused once more.
