The Great Marsh – Terminal || Afternoon
Asura 37 || R'hia 13

R'hia was starting to realize why Asura had mixed feelings about the flying-type. Uxie could be the greatest boon they could ask for, even if he wants to stay neutral, and yet the kid's actively shooting scathing comments at him. At a LEGEND. Even those who were against the legends these days would probably have more respect for the power Uxie carries than Seek is currently showing... She opts to not speak out, figuring that, alongside her newer place among the group, the Legend of knowledge was probably wiser than to be provoked by a kiddo. She heard Eleroo wondering aloud, "I wonder if they want peace too."

"I can guarantee they want peace. But when a group's been through enough, sometimes... well, sometimes they see violence and harsh defense as the only road to keep their own remaining peace. If we were in their shoes, I know your friend would be the first to pipe up for any new group's departure." The human tried her best to put the shoe on the other foot, even these days. She turned to Uxie, the prior talk of teleportation and escape. "I don't have much experience with Psychics, let alone Legends. Is it even possible for you to teleport others, let alone a group of our size?" She ran the possibilities through her head. Hell, she didn't even know what this group's ultimate goal or destination was, but in terms of short distance, teleportation could be really useful for avoiding conflict, or gaining an upper hand... should Uxie offer it. He seemed averse to conflict, though a Legend taking sides in a squabble like this does indeed seem like it could have ill effects later on.

Asura, predictably so, was once again getting agitated by Seek. He waited a bit to interject, so perhaps that patience was a victory in some small way- but it had come and gone. "You're lucky to be alive, foolish girl. If it weren't for Uxie, you may well have been taking one last blow when we were outside. You forget that you do not speak for us all, and certainly not for me. A grumpy tone to his voice and body, he turns and moves away from the group.

He wanders towards Felix, who has a concerned Charizard above him. "Treatment? Surely you don't intend to enter the rain once more, Shenron." The fire type was too kind- or perhaps too eager to help- for his own good. Though, to be fair, Asura was acting on assumption here.

The Great Marsh|Afternoon
38

Felix felt helpless with his illness continuously growing in intensity. He felt bad for having the others do stuff for him to get some berries that he doesn't even know if they're in the area. I feel so damned useless. This is probably why I shouldn't of neglected my training. The fairy type thought to himself. It wasn't because of he neglected his training. The name of his illness wasn't well known since its usually in the more rare cases. "Oran and a berry that cures all ailments..? Is that not... Lum berry I believe? I could be wrong" Lum berry? Is that what the name of the berry was called? Likely though they'll have to track it down since there wouldn't be any in this marshland. "I'm certain the marsh holds Oran berries but we must pinpoint exactly what this other berry is. For now you must remain hydrated, fluids will certainly help slightly sate any illness and keep you comfortable" Shenron had gotten water for Felix from raiding a vending machine earlier. "Thanks Shenron. *coughs* I owe you one." The sylveon said giving a weak smile.


The feeling he had though had made him worry if Seek would scold him for helping a stranger out who just arrived not but a day ago. Not to mention she'd swipe that bottle of water away to keep whichever storage they have. "Treatment? Surely you don't intend to enter the rain once more, Shenron." When did Asura come in from talking with the others? Felix wouldn't want to have Shenron risk his own life out there with the rain coming down heavy. Once again it looks like Asura might have to do it. Hopefully this time, he doesn't have trouble with a floatzel. However, the likely chance of another floatzel would be greater since by now the other one had likely alerted its fellow water types to their presence. In case they did come back, there would need to be someone able to defend the downed sylveon until the lum berry is acquired.

The Sylveon continued to lay on the floor despite the amount of dirt and mud that is on his fur. It was uncommon for him to be on a wooden floor or anything that was a hard surface while laying down, but since there isn't a bed to lay down on, this will have to make due until he felt better. "Asura, can you find the lum berry *coughs* for me? I don't know if its close or not, but if there isn't any, *coughs* we'll have to raid a pokemon center." That's if the doors wasn't locked in the building. Likely though the Floatzel's gang could be patrolling it heavily if anything. "Shenron, can you keep my company? At least until someone else comes to keep an eye on me." An odd request from him to ask of a charizard, but it was either him or Asura and since its raining it was best to keep Shenron dry. Felix then sneezed from the dust tickling his nose. The sneeze did blow some dust off the floor revealing a semi polished floor. It looked like it was polished a while ago, but with the lack of any humans or other living pokemon it hasn't aged to much. Once he feels better Felix plans on at least train more so he can get stronger and defend the others.

❖ Pastoria City + Terminal Building Floor 1 + Afternoon + 33 ❖


Letting a fresh breath of air fill his lungs the legend soothed any irritation the child had caused. "You could try making that help a bit more clear." She said, reminding all that she was young, inexperienced, and uncouth. Though she would still be held accountable for her behavior it was not simply due to being rude and arrogant youth. "You can start by telling us who their leader is."

How long had it been since his last visit here, since he last witnessed the actions of those who were native to this land? Lifespans had shortened severely in recent years and his own scale for time was heavily skewed. The old Floatzel he recalled likely would not have survived this long with so many odds stacked against it. An inappropriate amount of time passed before he answered, his words airy. "The probability of leadership being transferred since my last time here is high, so I can not say."

"I don't have much experience with Psychics, let alone Legends. Is it even possible for you to teleport others, let alone a group of our size?" Looking toward someone while speaking was an innate behavior for most, a polite gesture for eye contact during a conversation, but the legend had to consciously turn his head toward the girl as he answered her. "It is possible for me to teleport others with size being the limiting factor."

Whether it was a large object or multiple entities it exponentially increased the power he needed and the strain it caused to move them. There was also the matter of the distance he would be able to move them and his own current state of exhaustion. "Though the situation should not arise if we do need to make a sudden exit I can return us to this spot." Or, he added mentally, somewhere repetitively close without being an enclosed space.

The Great Marsh [Terminal] || Afternoon [Storming]
Eleroo 106 || Seek 97


"The probability of leadership being transferred since my last time here is high, so I can not say." Seek let out a tense breath from clenched teeth. Though that answer did not satisfy her it was the clearest response she had gotten from him so far, and it answered her question, so she couldn't really be mad. "Okay." She puffed, and after another strained breath she took a seat. Was that progress? None of us know what their leader is. Was that really an answer? Parting her jaws the Aiveon was about to yap out another question but didn't get the chance as Asura griped, "You're lucky to be alive, foolish girl. If it weren't for Uxie, you may well have been taking one last blow when we were outside. You forget that you do not speak for us all, and certainly not for me."

Her teeth fell closed again, and she bit her tongue of any further remarks. There was something about the tone of his voice, something about the sternness to it and not the words themselves that kept her mouth shut. It was a sensation she could not place, a putdown she only vaguely knew, but it was enough to have her remain obedient. Even Eleroo cringed as he felt the coldness from Asura's words wash across his pelt. He frowned and turned his eyes away from his friends. She knows that; she only speaks for herself. She was only the voice for others because usually Pokemon didn't dare speak out against her. Shuffling his paws the Radeon admitted to himself that, sadly, he agreed with Asura. He had nearly lost her when that Floatzel attacked. The last thing he wanted was for her big head to get her killed by either charging into this situation or driving the others away.

But Seek did not move. Her body was rigid, each breath forced. Letting her eyes fall closed the Aiveon tried to steady herself. She was getting way too worked up and could hardly think straight. Was that why this 'discussion' was just going around in circles? Guess I'll try again later. With a deep inhale and exhale she reopened her blue eyes and stared at the Legend. Okay, they had an emergency escape plan. Good. Great. "Then we can wait I guess." She said airily on an exhale. "If you can teleport us in, then you can teleport us out if they ambush this building. If they still want peace they might just leave us alone."

Dropping her eyes from him the flying type was not satisfied with her own decision. She wanted to go, to get them, and to get out of here, but clearly that wasn't going to happen. Getting back to her paws she starts to pad away under the impression she can resume her meal when she notices the bulky part of her group had clustered. Her ears fan out as much as they can from beneath her helmet as she starts to trot toward them. "Treatment? Surely you don't intend to enter the rain once more, Shenron." Treatment, outside? Where was Shenron going, what was going on? "Asura, can you find the lum berry *coughs* for me? I don't know if its close or not, but if there isn't any, *coughs* we'll have to raid a Pokemon Center."

The eeveelution's face twists as she listens to Felix's voice. It was even more unpleasant than normal, but in a way that made her more curious than annoyed. What had happened? Padding closer she could see the Sylveon on the ground, his fur beaded with sweat or water, looking disturbingly ill from the last time she saw him. Her mind raced as she tried to put the pieces together. Felix was down, did the Floatzel do it? He needed a treatment, was it serious? There wasn't really any blood scent around. "You're going out again?" Eleroo asked, his mew worried as he turned himself around on the couch to face the others. "I haven't seen anyone, but.. isn't it too soon?" His paws coarsely kneaded the fabric. "Not if he needs medicine." Seek interjected with her best guess. "If we have to head out we will."

Great Marsh|Afternoon (74)

Shenron frowned realization reminding him he would not be able to go out now. "Perhaps... If I could I would. If it is necessary I would find a way" Of course his first thought was a way to breach the clouds but he would have no way of seeing his way back down. Perhaps there was a discarded umbrella around... If rain was common to Pastoria which he knew it may very well be, there could be one. He looked back to Felix willing to honor his request but unsure to just leave the task unaccepted or blind. "I do know the Centers do often keep preserved berry concoctions for newborns unable to take the strain of their healing devices... It'd be reasonable to assume the berries to make them would also be there among other useful items" Shenron's true fear was that someone holed up in the Center already. Thus it would be difficult to get these things. Whether or not someone was there... He couldn't think of anywhere else to find a Lum berry besides the Center. The PokeMart was mostly full of man-made items and any homes could possibly already be laid bare or even dangerous. The Gym was a definite no sale. It would be far too dangerous to risk venturing too far from Pastoria. The risk of getting stuck or attacked was great...

[quote="R'hia Kyrie"]

The Great Marsh – Terminal || Afternoon
Asura 38 || R'hia 14

Even R’hia could feel the scathing remark singe the air. She always knew he was blunt but… they’d not spent enough time together, in spite of this feeling of friendship she was finding with him, to know if that was intended to be as cold as it was, or if he was being blunt. The apocalypse can freeze the kindest hearts, after all. And yet, she can’t find a reason to scold him for it- he spoke words she considered to be a truth, no matter how bluntly he’d stated it. Not only that- but Seek seems to have actually taken it seriously. Whether she’s quietly seething or thinking, she’s stopped lashing out at Uxie- certainly a step in a decent direction.

"Then we can wait I guess."

R’hia gives a nod with an impressed look on her face. She’d not given the girl enough credit- while it took a tongue-lashing from Asura, she was calming herself down and speaking more reasonably now. R’hia nods once more, this time in agreement with Seek’s idea. ”Yeah- for the time being, staying put may be smarter than we think, too.” She starts thinking about it, seeming to reinforce her train of thought. ”I mean, whether they like or dislike you, Uxie, you’re still a Legend. That’s nothing to take lightly- if they don’t attack, all the better. If they do come, I doubt they’ll be rushing us- taking you by surprise, as a psychic, probably isn’t an easy task at all. I understand why you’d hide yourself like you did, but the revelation of your real image has bought us some time. Now the question is, what kind of planning do we do with it? We can try and push deeper, we can try and move along, or stay put, putting it in simplest terms.” Her little ‘tactical ramble,’ as it shall now be dubbed, now over, she realizes she totally dominated the conversation for a moment there. Oops. She’s got plenty more on her mind, but she thinks it better to leave room for retorts for now…

”Uh… Sure.” There was a distinctly unusual tone of uncertainty for the Machamp as he quickly turned to return to the other group once again. A lot of back and forth in a small span of time… he approaches R’hia, though not out of any attempt to avoid the others. ”R’hia, I am needed to find a certain berry for Felix. Which one is a… Lum berry, what does it look like?”


”Lum? That’s the green one, really firm. Is he getting sick that fast…? Peeking around Asura, she notices that he is indeed looking rather ailing… She turns, concerned, and looks to Uxie. ”Sorry to change the topic so swiftly, but do you know where any Lum berries are? It sounds like we’re going to need some, and quickly.” She hopes that there are some nearby- She’s no doctor, and has no clue what Felix may actually have- and no clue how to stave off his symptoms, aside from what he’s apparently told Asura.

((OOC: So much for a day off- but I think I managed a decent post in spite of having to work the second job unexpectedly. If I need to correct anything, please say so- I know I had R’hia speaking a lot, so feel free to have interjections on her conversation as needed.))

❖ Pastoria City + Terminal Building Floor 1 + Afternoon + 34 ❖



After a firm lambasting from Asura Seek finally yielded her useless, self centered argument. "Okay." The lone word was noticeably forced, her fiery will still fighting. "Then we can wait I guess." "Very well." The Legend agreed as she walked away. The rest of their assembly had collected nearby but R'hia remained and was still brimming with tactical interest.

”---If they don’t attack, all the better. If they do come, I doubt they’ll be rushing us- taking you by surprise, as a psychic, probably isn’t an easy task at all.” "My perception of the land is hard to escape." His sensitivity was top notch, allowing hardly anything to elude his awareness in any regard. He was naturally in-tune as a psychic, but as a legend it was a matter of survival. To do his duties it was imperative he remain elusive and unbound.

”I understand why you’d hide yourself like you did, but the revelation of your real image has bought us some time.”

"It was not intentional," he said firmly, not to be humble, but as a matter of clarity, "but it seems to have of been beneficial." When she asked what their next course of action should be, however, the pixie was less opt to reply. "The choice of how we progress is a matter of personal interest. More so, it is a matter of gaining Seek's approval. While she has currently accepted waiting she has made her desire to quit this place clear."

It was then Asura returned to their conversation inquiring about berries with the others in his wake. ”Lum? That’s the green one, really firm. Is he getting sick that fast…? The previous illness that had held Felix suddenly progressed both rapidly and aggressively. The vulpine was downed, his breathing labored and sporadic with little reason to consider them feigned, though Uxie could believe him to over exaggerate.

”Sorry to change the topic so swiftly, but do you know where any Lum berries are? It sounds like we’re going to need some, and quickly.” He answered quickly, "Lum berries grow native in this region but they are a very fickle fruit." The cure all berry was a slow grower and their trees produced few fruit at once. Both Oran and Sitrus were less potent against fighting disease (restorative properties not withstanding), but their availability made them more universally desired.

"I have seen them growing within the Great Marsh," he spoke with a dry voice. There were a lot of trees in the Great Marsh, and to locate the few Lum trees and fewer fruit, within the stormy weather no less, would be both treacherous and time consuming. "But even if we located them there is no promise there would be any berries left."

That did not mean they were out of options. Turning his entire frame toward R'hia Uxie continued, "You humans often distill nature's gift down to its core medical properties."

"It would not be presumptuous to believe the local Pokemon Center once contained such a medicine."

The Great Marsh [Terminal] || Afternoon [Storming]
Eleroo 107 || Seek 98


"I do know the Centers do often keep preserved berry concoctions for newborns unable to take the strain of their healing devices... It'd be reasonable to assume the berries to make them would also be there among other useful items." Eleroo visibly shuddered, a wave passing from his head down to his tail. "Yeah, they do." He said meekly, the fuzzy memories coming back to him. "If a Center has a NICU they can be.. extensive." His early childhood was a weird blue of illness and medicines. Warm boxes and gentle hands, and being forced to down things of fowl natures. Legends, he was in such a different place now.

Wanting those memories to fade away once more the Radeon tried to think of something else, anything really, and a weird thought forcefully came to mind. "If they had medicine made from them.. could the doctors also of had berry fields?" He asked Shenron hesitantly, unsure if his thought was even possible. "Like, around here. It would be convenient if they ran out, or their machines stopped working." And, for them, it could even be a life saver. "Humans are pretty good at growing things. Maybe they could have survived."


”Uh… Sure.” The lack of confidence to his tone, a complete turn from what he had last said to her was enough to make the eeveelution's ears pop up too quickly and shift her helmet upon her head. Trotting after the Machamp she tried to picture the berry R'hia described, but unfortunately she couldn't recall seeing any of those. ”Lum? That’s the green one, really firm. Is he getting sick that fast…? "Apparently." She confirmed, her voice neutral and without sarcasm. "Hopefully these Lum berries will help." Were they sure that was even the right one? Usually Pokemon jumped at oran berries so this had to be something bad if he needed something else.

R'hia switched to asking Uxie if he knew where any of the berries in question were and Seek swallowed. Hopefully he wouldn't be long winded when they were, yet again, rushed. "Lum berries grow native in this region but they are a very fickle fruit." Digging her claws into the floor the flying type breathed, "Great. Does that mean they are out of season or something? That they don't grow around here?" The limited knowledge she had on berries was that orans and pechas were delicious and seemed to grow everywhere she went. "I have seen them growing within the Great Marsh," was all the Legend got to say before Seek reacted. There was no thought, no processing, just a sudden lift of her ears that was so fierce her helmet popped off and fell to the floor with a clatter.

"Not the Marsh." She yipped, eyes large but firm. "Is there anything else?" There was no way she would risk her life in that hell hole again, and everyone else's, just to save one. Luckily, Uxie had another offer, one similar to Shenron's but with notable disdain. "It would not be presumptuous to believe the local Pokemon Center once contained such a medicine." Seek sighed, settling herself into a sit while she placed her helmet back upon her brow as though it never fell. "So that's our only real option?" The Marsh was out, and searching blindly would take too long. "Well, there is no way those other Pokemon will let us just waltz in there."

Eleroo's gums pulled back as further worry stained his face. His red gaze pierced the clouds to what little bits of sky he could see, the mix of blues and grays painting a muddled picture. It was something he had not realized before, what with the excitement and dark atmosphere outside. Its getting late. It was already dark in its own right. What would happen when the ambient light disappeared? Moving his head ever so slightly he slide his gaze back to Felix. You can't wait till morning. Could he? He did not dare ask, nor did he want to risk such a thing, but what would happen if they got caught in the dark out in this dangerous town?

Kneading so hard his claws pierced the fabric the Radeon asked with a dry mouth, "What if those other Pokemon already took all the stuff from the Center?" The building would be easy to guard on its own, but too obvious to wanderers that it held medicine. There was no way they could leave the valuable medicines there. "They could have moved all the good stuff to their hideout but left the really specific things they didn't understand. Then the Center would be a good storage area for the rest. Just in case."

Great Marsh|Afternoon (75)

Shenron had his tail coiled near Felix keeping him warm and watched. Having learned small kits and pups could often suddenly slip away from their illnesses without warning. He leaned in to give him a comforting sniff but Eleroo's question pulled him away. "If they had medicine made from them.. could the doctors also of had berry fields?" "Like, around here. It would be convenient if they ran out, or their machines stopped working." "Humans are pretty good at growing things. Maybe they could have survived." That made a lot of sense actually. "That could be possible, Pastoria's climate though trying would've been no problem if the humans constructed a greenhouse to protect the drier fruit from the weather... Humans are known for such clever innovations" Shenron shook his head oddly agreeing with Seek. "It would indeed be unwise to venture into the marsh now. At least wait for a break in the weather if that's your intention. Yet exercise extreme caution going into the city. Anything still left might be guarded or possible bait" He had seen it in the still functional dead. Using food, shelter and promise of safety to lure the living in.
