Flash scratched behind his neck. Here he was out in the forest, all on a favor for Minnow. Damn, if she wasn't both family and his best friend, he'd be thinking twice of going out here like this. Maybe ask one of his siblings to go out and do her errands instead. He was the one out of his siblings without a pokemon, even if he thought he could handle himself. Especially since Ice made Flash take his knife before he left... Flash didn't exactly have a knife of his own, so whenever he had to go into the forest for whatever reason, at least someone made sure to shove a knife into his hand.

Sometimes it was a sibling. Sometimes it was a cousin. Sometimes it was a parent.

Minnow had asked him to collect some berries she and Icy were running low on, and she couldn't go herself because she had to help run the store today. Thus, she shoved a basket into Flash's hands and made him go out and get the berries instead. He sighed. He wasn't as good as finding these sorts of things as Minnow was, considering how she was sort of trained for it by Icy. So, Flash wasn't having much luck. He'd found some... Exactly four berries after searching out here for.... Well... Hours at least.

Sighing, Flash decided to sit down. He lay down the fruit basket, and leaned back against a tree. Maybe part of his lack of luck was that the seasonal cycle had only recently turned to Spring... Maybe the forest needed a little more time. Regardless, this was a time for a break. Hopefully without getting mauled and having to explain even more scars to his family.....

And having Minnow practically bite his head off.

[ Welcome to Terrene! I have prepared a short story that will play out for Flash, in which a number of wild Pokemon will appear. Depending on Flash's choices and interactions with these creatures, one of them could end up being his first Pokemon! Remember, I remain in control of all of these wild Pokemon until the end of the topic. Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions! @kira]


As Flash had been moving through the forest, collecting the berries for Minnow, he'd had an unexpected unseen stalker. It had noticed the human's presence, and his descent into the forest where unknown dangers lurked. And though he didn't seem to have fear, there was a caution to him that was notable. But that wasn't why this pokemon followed him. The dark type prowled behind waiting, watching. After all, why collect your own food when someone else could do it for you.

Unfortunately, it was soon discovered that the human was not hunting, despite the presence of the strange sharpened object that they tended to use. It internally scoffed at the idea that he'd brought it simply for defense, watching as he collected berries. Well, it wasn't exactly the ideal lunch, but it would do. Besides, stealing from humans was a bundle of fun. So the grey-furred feline continued to follow, hidden and unseen as he pushed on his quest to find berries. It took a while, and a lot of patience, but eventually the man stopped for a break.

And that was exactly the opportunity needed. Especially as the human rested his back against the tree, the pokemon was able to exploit that, making a wide arc around to remain undetected, while getting behind the tree that he was resting at. Approaching slowly, making sure not to make any sound and spook the human nor other pokemon who could be around, the creature made the approach. Padding up to the tree, to the edge of the bark, carefully around the side, with the basket in sight. A paw reaching out, slowly, sure, towards one of the berries in the basket...

Before something jutted out of the ground towards it. The cat released a yowl of surprise, leaping above the purple tail that launched into the tree, having missed its target. The feline wasn't sticking around for that again - with cover blown, it knew it needed to get out of here. Regardless of the human seeing it now, the pokemon shot forward and ran forward and off, running across and into the brush once more to try and escape. Whatever had pulled a surprise attack on it was clearly deemed a threat.

Fortunately for both the human and cat, the little scorpion was... stuck in the tree. The poisonous tail had bashed into the bark with a little more power that had been necessary, the pokemon having got a little too excited to hit its prey. The pokemon was upside down, wiggling and trying to pull its tail out of the tree, unsuccessfully. It strained more, hissing and dashing claws into the dirt, trying to get free so that it could re-submerge into the dirt. But as it was, it wouldn't be free unless the human decided to help out.

Would Flash help the skorupi, follow the meowth, or go about his way?

Flash, unfortunately, was unaware of his stalker's apparent desire to mug him and steal the berries he'd collected thus far. While he was sitting down for a rest, hopefully to go undisturbed... He wasn't completely stupid and off-guard. Considering his past experiences, particularly that time he ended up earning some scars in defense of Ice from wild pokemon... He wasn't keen on adding to his scar collection. Minnow would probably have a field day chewing him out if not only did he manage to lose the berries, but also obtained more scars. He swore that his friends and family thought he went looking to get mauled, with the way they seemed suspicious that he actually knew how to take care of himself. It was annoying, since he believed he was capable enough to handle himself. Not entirely unscathed, but he could always make it out alive.

Still, fighting and guarding against the stealthy sort of opponent, wasn't really his strongest suit. He was best at going head-on, though he could use his head if he really needed to. He just needed a heads-up that it would be necessary, and sneak attacks rarely allowed such luxury. He was suddenly aware of the yowling cat, revealing itself as a Meowth variant. The demonic kind. He rose up to his feet, and held his berry basket up to his chest. His family held a certain policy on demons. They were best to be avoided, considering their negative psychological effects. Though the family wouldn't turn away a demon that truly was a partner of a family member... It was best to try and avoid getting to that point.

At the very least, the Meowth, with its cover blown, had booked it out of there. Looking to see the savior of his berries, he saw.... Uh... A little scorpion stuck in the tree. It had struck into the tree, whilst aiming at the Meowth presumably... And now it was stuck. It seemed to be failing at removing itself, simply squirming around without much success.

He shook his head. If he helped the Skorupi, it was possible that it would turn on him. He wasn't like Minnow, who would probably help this little scorpion. Despite how she seemed, rough and no-nonsense... She had a heart of gold and would always help someone in need, human or pokemon. Well... Not without sass and harshness. That was simply a part of his cousin and best friend.

With his current break place compromised, he guessed he should go find a new one. Or... Continue searching for berries. He groaned. He guessed he could... Both look for a better place to take a proper break and for those berry bushes he was here for. With his basket held to his chest, he left the Skorupi stuck in the tree, and made a point of wandering off in a different direction than the demonic Meowth had gone in.

The little scorpion continued to wiggle, more and more as the human turned away and started to leave. The little pokemon hadn't been expecting help from the human anyway, so it wasn't as though his leaving was of any surprise. But still it continued to try and free itself, wanting to get back under cover and wait for another prey to come near, so that it could hopefully strike more successfully. Luckily for Flash, it didn't appear as though the cat was going to make any further attempts on the berries he'd been collecting.

And while there weren't any apparent thieves nearby, he wouldn't make it far before another pokemon would appear, though it was much less sure about it's path or purpose. As a ligth breeze stirred through the trees around him, so too did the little puffy pokemon, the cotton ball drifting with the breeze. It had white skin beneath the cotton, with green coloring its ears which flopped out to the sides. It continued to move, gliding downwards as the wind started to falter, before coming to a rest inside Flash's basket. Though it didn't move to eat nor bother his berries in any way. It simply sat there, staring up and quietly wondering what this human was doing.

Meanwhile, a less sneaky soul was buzzing out and about, having spotted Flash as he moved, though paying no mind to the cottonee. It pushed forward quickly, zipping towards the human and around him, looking in his basket before pulling a bit of a distance away, its movements erratic and quick, though not leaving a lot of time for contemplation. Its mouth opened and spoke odd sounds, words that couldn't be recognized, as one of the feet pointed towards the basket, and another towards the pokemon itself. Then it stopped speaking and set out two rounded hands, as if expecting him to give it something.

Flash was a little bit relieved that he didn't immediately have to deal with other thieves. He was feeling slightly wary, now. He didn't think that there wouldn't be another thief coming to steal the berries. He was feeling somewhat irritated, this sort of thing didn't tend to happen when he was fishing! The fish could admittedly be rather difficult, but the fish weren't trying to mug him at least.

Though, the last thing Flash expected happened. It wasn't particularly bad, but it was... Pretty weird and surprising. He didn't notice at first, but something told him to look at his basket and... Lo and behold there was a fluffy-looking grass-type nestled in his basket, apparently not interested in his berries... More like the basket. He stopped where he stood and stared for a short while. What the hell was he supposed to do with this? It seemed extremely neutral... It wasn't attacking or showing hostility at all, maybe just a bit curious. At the same time... How was he supposed to add any berries he found with this fluffy plant in the way?

He flinched badly when a swift, yet incredibly unstealthy insect approached and zipped around him. He was bending his knees a little, and holding the basket a little closer, and by proxy the fluffy plant inside. He took a deep breath, and relaxed his grip again. He had no idea what this giant ladybug was trying to convey, but the way that it was holding out empty hands... It was pretty damn clear what it wanted: His berries. Dammit, why his berries? Surely the inhabitants of this forest could find berries better than he could? He wasn't even like Minnow who was trained in this sort of thing, he was a fishing man, not a berry man. This wasn't his speciality or profession. He turned away from the ladybug, and began walking away, hoping his obvious refusal would make it go away peacefully. Though, he was glancing back suspiciously to watch for aggressive behavior. Absentmindedly, he realized he needed to dump this Cottonee somewhere... He didn't want to dump his berries along the grass-type, lest he lose his berries to nearby pokemon like the Ledyba. So, he looked down sternly into the basket and said, "Shoo. Go away."

@kira

The little grass type watched as the human noticed it, seeming a bit perplexed but otherwise not hostile. Natural to its kind, the pokemon wasn't inclined to move anywhere specific. There was no destination, only aimless wandering. So until a breeze drifted through, it was remaining in place, at least for the moment. When Flash turned his attention on the other new arrival, there wasn't any reaction from the cottonee. It didn't even bother to roll to look at the ledyba flitting around him.

The bug felt satisfied in the flinch and defensive positioning of the human, moving around to inspect and deciding the berries were worthy. It continued to sit there as he calculated, waiting for the berry to be delivered. When it wasn't, and the man simply turned away from it, the pokemon started buzzing in a fuss, clearly unhappy with his decision to simply ignore it. The pokemon flew forward, but arced around in a path that showed it clearly wasn't about to attack him. However it did circle in front of his new path, once again stopping and holding out two balled-hands, waiting for him to place a berry in them.

When he looked down and looked sternly at the little ball of cotton, it simply blinked, waiting to see what he would do and unaware of the situation with the ledyba. He spoke to it, in that human tongue that didn't make sense. It wasn't sure what he wanted, but from the look he clearly wanted it to do something. The little creature would have shrugged if it had shoulders. As it was, it simply rolled back until it hit the edge of the basket, leaving room in most of the basket if he needed to place more berries but apparently barred leaving by the edge of the basket - or, just too lazy or unwilling to move itself over and out of it.

Flash had tried to turn away from the ladybug demanding his berries, however it simply seemed to get worked up instead of going away. It flew around, thankfully thus far remaining unthreatening. He was sure if he got his ass handed to him by a bug, Minnow would be torn between kickin his ass for losing the berries, chewing him out for getting injured, and laughing her ass off because he got beaten up by a bug. All three outcomes sounded terrible. Nevertheless, the bug had stopped in front of him again with the same insistent request. He gave his best glare, often used to cow the extremely reckless creatures known as little brothers, and he spoke firmly. “Go away, you’re not getting anything from me.

He turned again, and made sure to pick up his pace. He didn’t want to spend too much energy running away from this bug, as he hoped it wasn’t looking for a fight and would simply leave him alone. Glancing down in the basket, he wasn’t really sure that the fluffy plant that had situated itself alongside his berries really understood what he said. Still, it rolled to the side of the basket, giving some room for Flash to add more berries... And he supposed that the plant wasn’t really obstructing his task anymore... He still didn’t want to go through the trouble of dumping it out of the basket, because he was sure that the ladybug would waste no time in swiping the dropped berries. He guessed he could try to just remove the fluffy creature with his hands... But he was reluctant to. He didn’t necessarily have to, and honestly... He didn’t mind the obstacle all that much. Perhaps the next thing trying to take his berries would simply take the fluffy planet instead. He was sure that if he relayed such a possibility to some of the softer, younger members of his family... They would heavily disapprove. But for him, family came first, duty second, everything else third. The well-being of the fluffy plant came third.

He glanced back to see if the ladybug was following him, but regardless, he grunted as he held the basket up to his chest and started a steady jogging pace. It was faster than walking, but not a full out run-for-life fleeing speed. He hoped to make this finally enough to make the ladybug quit following him and acting like an incompetent beggar.

@kira

The ledyba was losing its patience with the human. His eyes seemed to focus in, glaring his annoyance and unwillingness to comply at the bug. It floated for a moment, watching the human, and wondered who would give in. But unfortunately for it, the human simply turned away once again. And this time, he seemed to move more quickly to try and run away. The bug buzzed in annoyance once more as he did so, but it appeared that it hadn't given up quite yet. It pursued, much quicker than before.

However, it appeared the pokemon was going to attempt taking the berry by force this time. It shot towards his back, pushing to zip to the basket and take one of the berries. However, the little fluff of cotton in the basket wasn't aware of the intentions - so when the bug was flying fast towards it, the pokemon assumed it was the target, rather than the berries. In a huff of annoyance, the creature surprised the ledyba, releasing a powered gust of fairy wind, attacking the pokemon and causing it to flinch back. The attack seemed to be enough to deter it, the pokemon leaving Flash and his berries alone now. The cottonee relaxed once more, enjoying the ride as it always did.

Flash's luck just wasn't in his favor though. It wasn't long before his mission to grab berries was interrupted once more - This time in the form of a monkey. It leaped down from the trees above, catching the man's shoulder to prevent dropping straight to the ground. It was laughing, hooting in the voice that showed the blue creature was definitely a monkey, before climbing up on Flash's shoulder as if he was just another object to climb on. It stabilized itself, even if the man was still jogging despite its appearance.

But the creature didn't come alone. Soon another long-legged creature was rushing towards them, two thin necks supported two heads. Both heads chirped and tweeted in a hurried, upset manner towards him - or more correctly, towards the monkey on his shoulder. Its legs carried it quickly, and it wouldn't be long before it caught up to them - though how Flash would handle this new appearance would change the course of this encounter.

Flash was annoyed by the ladybug not giving up, seeming that it was going to get more violent. However, there was unexpected intervention from the fluffy plant occupying his berry basket. He assumed... It was a mistaken assumption that the ladybug was after the intelligent cotton, not the berries. Still, it worked out in his favor. Hm... Perhaps leaving the fluffy plant be in his basket really was a better idea after all. He just needed to think of a way to spin this tale so Minnow wouldn't make fun of him.... Or maybe he could just not mention the events unfolding, and completely gloss over all details regarding this outing. Yes.... That sounded like a better plan than actually being bluntly honest with her.

Though, it didn't seem like the forest was in the mood for leaving him alone with his task... And accidental passenger in the form of a cotton plant. Something came down from above and was yanking on his shoulder. "Augh, what the hell?!" He suddenly yelped, jerking to look over his shoulder at what it was. A fucking monkey of all things, situating itself in a more stable manner on his shoulder. He was extremely irritated. If that wasn't enough, a two-headed bird was now running his way! He did his best to violently thrust his palm into the monkey to push it off, and regardless he'd be running to his sharp left to run away from the approaching bird, and hopefully not get in a collision course with the wild pokemon.

This outing in the forest seemed painfully eventful, and Flash was hoping desperately that this wouldn't end up with him mauled and further scarred. His life was never this exciting unless he was being attacked in a situation that would end up with his entire family yelling at him, thinking he lacked self-preservation. He didn't, he just seemed to have horrible luck, becoming horribly mauled. Not everyone had such close calls at he, considering his throat came scarily close to being ripped out once.

@kira

Ever unbothered by the events unfolding around it, the relaxed ball of cotton didn't seem to move or even turn as the new creatures seemed to join them in this part of the forest. Without the wind picking up, there really wasn't anything to cause the little pokemon to float out. And, as many of its kind tended to do, it would stay in place until such wind would come through to push it away to the next spot where it would rest, an aimless wanderer to the forest.

Flash's attempt to shove the monkey off his shoulder was partially successful. The panpour started to fall off, completely surprised by the man trying to shove it off. It hadn't actually interacted with many humans so directly, so it wasn't familiar with their behavior - it was too busy playing pranks on the other inhabitants of the forest. The pokemon started to fall back, but managed to clambor its hands into his shirt. Gripping the loose fabric, it hung on tightly as Flash ran offer, dangling back but focusing just on hanging on rather than on trying to climb up. Escape was best as the target of its latest prank was close behind.

The doduo was not fazed by the human running away, with the monkey strapped to his back. It was clear that he'd been trying to get the pokmeon off, which meant he wasn't allied with it. The bird was single-mindedly focused on its target, and knew its swift steps could overtake the human easily. It turns the corner and jolted up towards him, both sets of eyes trained on the panpour, who was making disgruntled noises at the bird's approach. It wasn't exactly keen on being caught, but it wasn't exactly in a great situation to escape at the moment.

The land-bound avian was quick to catch up, running to the side of Flash rather than directly at him. With surprising precision, the pokemon shot forth a beak to clamp around the panpour, who released its grip and whined out in shock. With its prey captured, the doduo slowed down, the free head looking towards the human. It chirped sweetly, a small thanks to the human for his indirect assistance in capturing the little pranster. And with that, it was able to focus on the monkey, who was wiggling desperately to escape the grasp of the doduo, throwing out its arms and legs to try and break free.

Given that Flash was pretty occupied with the sudden monkey clinging to him, and that the cotton plant was fairly docile and not doing much... He didn't really take note of the pokemon in his basket, mentally cursing at the monkey instead. He'd never made a real habit of excessive cursing externally, partially because he had to set a good example for his younger siblings, and partially because it seemed immature.

At least he thought he almost dislodged the monkey, almost falling off of his shoulder, except then it started yanking at his shirt. The upper part of his body was jerked back as well, before Flash was able to fix his posture somewhat as he ran, to avoid falling backwards because of this Arceus awful monkey and whatever the hell it was doing. He didn't care exactly what it was up to, he simply wanted to go away and leave him alone. This was exhausting both physically and emotionally... More the latter because this was ridiculous. This was going to be another part of the story he would omit when relaying anything to Minnow. Between the cotton plant and a sudden monkey, Minnow probably would've gotten a real kick out of the true events transpiring.

Flash was surprised by the bird proving to be rather fast, catching up to him with ease, and when it struck a brief flash of panic overtook his expression. Except, instead of pecking his eyes out and him having to explain where the hell his eyebrows had gone... The bird grabbed the monkey and successfully removed said monkey from his shoulder. The bird finally slowed down, and a little shocked Flash had also slowed, before he stood still to watch. It seemed that.... The bird was always after the monkey, who was apparently trying to use Flash as a shield or a getaway of some sort. Did it really matter which? Anyway, the bird had successfully gotten rid of the monkey, so he supposed he was thankful. "Thanks." He said. He wasn't a particularly smile-y person, so he didn't shoot the bird with a grin or anything... But he hoped the message got across in some shape or form. The bird certainly seemed to be happy, judging by the chirping. Maybe it thought that Flash had been helpful in capturing the monkey? Well.... Anyway.... This part seemed like it was resolved.

He waved goodbye, and began moving onward into the forest, still keeping his eyes peeled for any berries that may make themselves known, and that he could add to his basket. That was still a priority, and he hoped to have a bigger harvest to bring home, so Minnow didn't just scowl at him and level him with a disappointed look and ask what the hell he was doing the whole time. It was somewhat amazing how intense and descriptive some of Minnow's gazes were. Her disappointment always looking like she was calling you an idiot with her eyes.

As the human slowed and eventually stopped to look at the bird, the monkey continued wiggling. The bird wasn't exactly pleased with it, its beak struggling to keep a good enough grip on its slender body in order to keep the trickster trapped in its grasp. This bit of pain and restriction was being issued as punishment, though it was notably difficult for the doduo to keep steady with one beak. While it could perhaps use its second beak to assist in keeping the panpour still, it seemed distracted by Flash.

When the human waved, it was a gesture unknown to the armless creature. But, the curious soul was oddly interested in the gesture, and wanted a way to return it. Though it couldn't wave an arm in response, the bird instead used its free head, bobbing it side by side to copy the gesture in the best way it could. It was short and concise, but hopefully got the point across that it was trying to wave. Either way, it seemed the creature was interested in Flash. Throwing the monkey to the side, it skittered off to escape while the doduo took a couple short, slow steps towards the human and his basket.

Though the man was leaving the bird plodded closer, on the opposite side of the basket. It peeked a head towards the basket full of berries and a still stationary cottonee, who apparently was fine just resting in the basket despite all the racket. Once the land-locked bird discerned that they were in fact berries, and that it seemed he was searching it was able to connect the dots that the human was collecting said berries. It wasn't sure why, but it could help!

Picking up its pace a bit, the pokemon got a slight bit ahead of Flash, turning to grab his attention with a chirp. One head motioned first, two nods forward to the basket of berries. Then, the other head nodded, pointing a bit diagonally off the direction he was traveling. With another sure chirp, it started walking in the direction it motioned, one head turning behind to watch him expectantly, as if the doduo was trying to get him to follow it. If he ignored it, or went a different way, the pokemon would eventually turn its head back to the way forward and keep moving away.

Flash had noticed that the two-headed bird had seemed to.... Wave its head? Was it maybe copying his wave goodbye? He supposed without arms it was difficult to wave behind, so it had done the closest thing. He supposed it was a friendly enough motion, for a pokemon out here in the wild. He'd had experiences with pokemon who were much more feral and hostile, and this bird seemed far from it... Thus, he did not feel particularly threatened by the flightless bird. The bird approached after finally released the monkey, who quickly made its escape. When Flash noticed the bird following him, he slowed his own stride, and he tried to gauge with his own eyes what the bird was aiming at.

He almost tensed at the thought that the bird might want his berries, once he noticed it was staring at the basket. He kept his gaze attentive and fixed upon the bird, suddenly wary of its motives. Though, the fact that it passed by Flash and seemed to be trying to beckon him seemed to suggest something else. He figured the bird wanted to lead him somewhere... Could it be trying to help him find berries? Though, he supposed it could be for a different reason. He mentally gauged the benefits and risks of following this bird. On one hand... He really wasn't sure where to look, and even this bird probably knew where to find berries better than he did. Fishing was his forte, not berry picking. On the other... If the bird had less than helpful motives, he could lose what little he had.

He imagined Minnow's reaction. If he lose all the berries, she'd be disappointed. If he brought this meager amount, she'd also be disappointed. She might barely take note of it if he managed to find a decent quantity. Deciding that taking the risk of not having to deal with an irritated Minnow was probably worth it, he ended up following after the flightless two-headed bird, though he was trying to keep on eye on where he was going instead of mindlessly following. He didn't want to get hopelessly lost, he did need to actually return to Forest Beach Village by the end of this.... 'Adventure.' Getting lost forever would also not be ideal, even if it did guarantee his family wouldn't be leveling him with stares of varying degrees of disappointment and frustration....

All in all, though.... Flash felt this was probably the most positive encounters he's had with wild pokemon before. Only one had seemed threatening, which had been the scorpion. Other than that, he didn't feel like he'd almost gotten his face ripped off, so this was all good things to report... If he ever chose to. Some of it was still a little weird and potentially embarrassing.... Mostly the monkey thing.

The bird chirped sweetly as it pushed through, glad the human was smart enough to understand and follow. It continued at it's slower pace in order to allow the man to keep up. Otherwise, convincing him to follow would have been literally pointless. It wasn't very long before the doduo would round off to a stop next to a bush. Flash's choice to follow the doduo would prove to be fruitful. He would find 6-7 more ripe, perfect berries, ready to be plucked hanging off the bush. The pokemon pointed at the berries and at his basket, trying to signal that it had brought him here so he could collect the berries. He helped it, now it was helping him.

And that was simply the beginning.


the relaxed, observant, but lazy Cottonee ?

Spoiler (Show/Hide)

As it had done for most of this berry excursion, the cottonee simply continued to rest in the basket, pleased that the human was amicable to it's staying in place. As he continued to placed berries in the basket, the fluffy pokemon would give him the basic politeness by moving around and rolling on top of the highest stacked berries to allow him space to place the others in the basket as needed. It was, perhaps, more effort than it wanted to give, but it was willing since this basket was carrying it like the wind normally would.

With the lack of breeze in the forest right now though, the grass-type would simply be sitting on the ground right now. Which alos meant it was more likely some predator would come by and try to eat it. So the safe place here with the human pushing away any pokemon that came by was much preferable to the ground. Due to this, the creature was willing to put in a tiny bit of effort to keep the human content enough to keep carrying it around in this little holder. Plus the berries had a nice scent to them. It, all in all, enjoyed this little spot.

Of course, it would leave if he insisted, but it seemed he wasn't insisting, so that was a positive. Eventually, as the day dragged on and the basket become full, it would seem that his collecting would come to an end. Still, the man didn't seem to care that it was resting with the berries, and traveled to some unknown destination with it in tow. The creature enjoyed going to new areas, it just didn't enjoy having to move itself to get there. This really was the ideal situation for travel.

After a while, the human would return to a strange construction of dead trees, which didn't seem to bother the cottonee. It watched the world around, including Flash, with beady eyes as it waited to see what would happen next. The pokemon operated on a very go-with-the-flow basis, and life with this man toting it around seemed like luxury. So, if Flash chose to keep it around, it would also choose to try and stick around the man as well, hoping he'll carry it to new places like he did today.

[Cottonee would join Flash immediately.]



the quick-witted, dextrous, but short-tempered Doduo ?

Spoiler (Show/Hide)

This human was proving more and more to be worthy and better than most of the creatures that inhabited this forest. He was a smart collector, pulling berries and taking them to wherever his hoard was in order to keep them for later. He tended to avoid trouble it seemed, as he chose to get away from potentially dangerous situations rather than recklessly fighting what would likely be a losing battle. He understood its gestures, despite it only having two heads to use in order to gesture.

The doduo, while fine alone with just its two heads, did prefer to hunt and forage in paris rather than singular. Its previous partner fell to an untimely doom, so it was currently on the hunt for a new partner. And Flash had shown to have pretty good instincts. The way he ran when the monkey was clinging to him after making it lose its balance was perfect. If he'd stayed in place, it could have gotten its balance back and escaped. The bird was very grateful he'd done what he did, which had allowed it to snatch and punish that dumb prankster.

So, in turn to the human following the doduo out here to the berries, a way of it showing that it was a useful and great partner, it followed Flash when he started to move again. He seemed to tolerate it, at least, and there would be a couple more times that day where the creature would be able to show him to a couple other full bushels of berries. Truly, he would leave with an overflowing basket with the avian to help out. Though the bird through this had made an assumption that they were partners now, having no way to simply ask him.

As the day grew later, the bird would continue to follow, and eventually the wind would pick up. Of course, the wind didn't bother the doduo at all. But with the breeze came the movement of another, the casual cottonee being lifted out of the basket and into the wind, drifting off to wherever the world would take it next. Honestly, it had been so quiet and still that the pokemon had legitimately forgotten that it was even still there. It was good that it drifted off, because that surely meant the human would be its partner instead. After all, he didn't chase after the grass-type.

With the mission completed and many berries foraged, the human was moving somewhere else, with more direction and less wandering than before. The doduo silently followed, assuming that the man had a specific place to return to. In the demise of its partner, its hideout had been taken, so it needed a new place to stay anyway. Unfortunately that place turned out to be the collection of human constructs and other humans. But, such was the life of being partnered with a human, it assumed. Either way, it stuck by his side, assuming they would have a positive and productive partnership.

[Doduo would join the human immediately.]






[Choose which Pokemon / story you would like, and respond to it! Note that upon choosing one story, the other two cease to exist and it is safe to assume the other two Pokemon are never seen again. When you make the decision as to which Pokemon, you must also decide their gender, ability, egg move, and name. Additionally, upon making your decision you may begin to control the Pokemon. Please stay true to the personalities I have outlined for each of them, though of course you are free to develop them further!]

((I'd like for Doduo to be male, ability Early Bird, and for egg move to be Brave Bird. His name will be Heather.))

Flash was grateful for the slower pace that the bird kept, as its speed at full belt was more than Flash could keep up with.... He was only human with human legs, and he was far from the fastest thing in the forest. Still, he felt fairly appreciative that this bird was friendly instead of hostile. He supposed not every pokemon in the forest was searching for a fight.... Perhaps simply most of them, with the rare merciful sort, like the bird that was helping him.

He let out a sigh of relief when the bird led him to a place where there were several berries he could add to his basket. He was right in assuming an actual inhabitant of the forest would know where to look, as opposed to his ignorant self that had been wandering aimlessly, waiting to strike metaphorical gold. He nodded in thanks at the bird, and approached the bush to pluck the berries from the branches, and drop them in his basket. At least Minnow wouldn't be really complaining that he hadn't done his job right. So what if he got a little help? Suddenly he felt like that Minnow was going to start cracking jokes when he got home that a bird was more competent than he was. That was certainly going to sting.

Though, admittedly, similar to the bird, he'd forgotten about the cotton pokemon in his basket, considering how it faded into the background.... Because honestly it wasn't doing much. It still let Flash add to the basket, so he guessed he'd deal with the problems of its presence later. When he left, he noticed the bird following him around. Considering how it'd helped him, Flash made no efforts to force it to leave. Besides, he wasn't entirely sure how the bird might react to him suddenly rejecting its presence. Possibly miffed and possibly may peck his eye out. He wasn't entirely sure. Anyways, as the day went on, the bird was able to supplement his search and showed him more berry locations. By the day's end, there was no conceivable way that Minnow could tell him that he did a bad job.... Unless she lorded the bird's help over his head.

His slight problem with the cotton plant occupying his basket was fixed when a gust of wind carried the pokemon up and away, to.... Uh... Honestly, Flash didn't know or care that much. Anyway, he guessed that solved that problem. The cotton plant had gone as it had come... On the wind. Anyways, he noticed that the bird was still following him as he was beginning to head back home. He wondered if this meant that the bird was really here to stay. He recalled Minnow's story of how she obtained her Deerling... She was the only one among the ones in their generation of their family that had obtained her pokemon all by herself. Flash's younger siblings' pokemon had been caught by their parents or had come from an egg. His family tended to be a bit more protective, and did not believe in throwing their kids into the wilderness in hopes of attracting a helpful pokemon. Yet, it seemed like it'd finally happened for Flash.... Possibly later in life than his parents would've liked, but it happened anyway.

Flash shrugged. "I think I'll call you Heather." He decided on a whim. He didn't think names mattered too much, besides.... Heather sounded nice. A nice name for a nice bird. Though, he should probably ask Briar what type of pokemon it was..... He was unaware of the species name.
