Frost Cave | Noon | 24

Arkturus listened to the Ninetails speak; his tail drooping slightly as the Ninetails spoke his piece.

" I don't think I can be much use in that condition, the snow is already disorienting enough masking sounds and scents. Ark and Finn can help you find your human Jack if that's him or not. Dal I think leaving this cave has its good ways and bad, but we know some of the halls already and the clear dangers we already found food. Maybe there is more deeper in clearly if it was a human would have had more camps and the like wouldn't they?"


Unlikely this was right for Ark to hear this.. idea. Was Hikirio afraid of going down into the city? Or was he comfortable hiding up in this cave with the Pilloswine and their evolved forms? It didn't make sense. His ears flattened against his head though as he went on further.

"I think going out into the unknown to this city or settlement is a bad idea for Yuri, we don't know if it's still even there, you can take most of the food if you want, just leave me some."

Ark shook his head at that "We're not taking what you carry. We have plenty in my bag to get us through." He commented quietly, tail flicking about slowly. Was he agitated? Annoyed? Sad? Probably a mix of these things. "Jack wants to find his human being, some ranger pokemon with Ark and his trainer. Fin showing up, just happen to be having a stroll in the middle of an ice cavern? You all have your own goals and drives I get that, but what about Yuri herself. Isn't Human pokemon supposed to protect the human's well being?"

He stayed quiet at that comment and let Hikirio run off after apologising, the Luxray took a deep breath and blew out some of his own icy breath as they were left alone now on the side of the Mountain with the others. His tail still hanging low with the star brushing across the snow slowly.

Thankfully the new fox was useful, supposedly surveying the area around them with a Psychic. "Nothing out of the ordinary. The Piloswines are sleeping down past the entrance. So you don't need to worry about anything mates. But this blood it seems to not be of the one I'm searching for." Though Finn wasn't able to pinpoint the stranger who wandered the caverns before them, Hikirio mentioned a storm that had occurred.

With the sound and feeling of wind picking up, it wasn't long before they finally reached their goal: the exit. "Well.. here we are. A way out. If they went out this way, this is the path the owner should of taken. Maybe we'll find them along the way."

Yuri, who had been excitedly speeding along with the group, skidded to a halt at the cavern's mouth. Worriedly directing her gaze down at the trail of blood, she fidgeted anxiously and shot a look at her Gengar, who gave her a nonchalant wave of hand. She heard the Braixen speak, although unable to understand, and the atmosphere of their group grew solemn. Hikirio starting barking and circled around Yuri, his voice escalating. Bewildered and confused at the sudden display, she looked frantically towards the other Pokemon but to no avail—she couldn't understand what was going on.

Yuri could hear rumbles as the Piloswine gradually began to wake up. As the whole herd roused from their sleep, the Ninetales fled from the group, leaving Yuri panicked and confused at the whole ordeal.

Dal stayed deathly quiet for a few moments, quietly gazing down the corridor Hikirio had ran off in before slowly directing his attention back to the herd of Piloswine. "...quick, out of the caverns—" he ushered the others. "—those Piloswine aren't happy about getting woken up, we don't want to be trapped here when they charge."

Jack couldn't bear the thought of it if it was his human. Knowing that the one that the pikachu had lived with for a long time has died had him in a daze, until Hikirio started acting up again. " I don't think I can be much use in that condition, the snow is already disorienting enough masking sounds and scents. Ark and Finn can help you find your human Jack if that's him or not. Dal I think leaving this cave has its good ways and bad, but we know some of the halls already and the clear dangers we already found food. Maybe there is more deeper in clearly if it was a human would have had more camps and the like wouldn't they?" Is he serious? The piloswine could awake any second and not be to happy about intruders in their home. If that happens then they could go on a rampage and destroy more than half of the cave and trap the ninetails in there with them. "I think going out into the unknown to this city or settlement is a bad idea for Yuri, we don't know if it's still even there, you can take most of the food if you want, just leave me some." The Pikachu could only think that the fire type was afraid of going into the city.

Both Jack and Finn knew it was a reckless idea to even go back into the cavern, yet Hikirio continued to act like a grump. "We're not taking what you carry. We have plenty in my bag to get us through." If this keeps up the Piloswine would definitely wake up from the arguing. Yet Jack kept restraint on using his thunderbolt on Hikirio to get him to knock it off. "Jack wants to find his human being, some ranger pokemon with Ark and his trainer. Fin showing up, just happen to be having a stroll in the middle of an ice cavern? You all have your own goals and drives I get that, but what about Yuri herself. Isn't Human pokemon supposed to protect the human's well being?" What's his point? They help each other out not just a single being. Sparks started fly off Jack's cheeks ready to unleash a thunderbolt extremely close to Hikirio. Before he did though the fox had ran off back into the cave. The Piloswine started to stir and Finn was detecting movements of anger. Crickey now that kid done it, they seemed pissed for being woken up from their nap. It wasn't long before Dal spoke out stating the oncoming threat. "...quick, out of the caverns—" Both Jack and Finn had came back towards the entrance helping Dal, Yuri and Ark get out of the cavern before the piloswine spots them. "—those Piloswine aren't happy about getting woken up, we don't want to be trapped here when they charge." Finn used his psychic powers to spot Hikirio already past them and might have been the source of them waking up.

The Fire Fox bared his teeth in anger. "Bloody kid, what the hell does he think he's doing?" Only a fool would stay in a place that there's no hope for escape if the exit is sealed off. "What back up plan do we have if they decide to chase us outside?" Jack asked as he was readying his charge beam. It might have much power but it'll at least slow their advance if worst comes to worst. The Braixen used his powers once again to see where the piloswine are at. "Hurry, they're about to start charging." The Electric type waited for the other three to come out hoping it isn't to late.

Arkturus frowned as the Pilloswine started to get active he went to grab the Pikachu by the scruff and darted for Yuri. Standing next to her he glanced at her, then at his back, then back at her. The effect of the communication he hoped would be obvious with a potential Pikachu in his mouth, as cute and/or terrifying as it would be for the poor little electro-rat. Muffled "Lux!" Would be all she gets from him.

He hoped Dal and the Fire Fox could move fast enough downhill. Dal he figured as a ghost could phase or..something. Turn invisible? Or ride a shadow? So much in the way of rumors of what gengar could do he had no real idea. Last thing he wanted was to have the Piloswine charge and crash through a mountain or worse.

What...what was going on? Yuri didn't have a single clue—first the Ninetales ran off and now the Piloswine around them were beginning to stir. In the blink of an eye the Luxray was next to her, glancing up at her before looking at it's back and letting out a short cry; did it want her to get on? At least, that's what she inferred from their mismatched communication. I hope this is what you meant... Tentatively but quickly, she got onto the feline's broad back, holding onto his mane.

"Hurry, they're about to start charging." Despite the Delphox's warning Dal briefly lingered. He had intended to escort his trainer out himself, but watching as she got onto Ark's back his concern ebbed—she should be safer that way.

He wasted no time. "Quickly! Now! Get out of the caverns!" The cries of angry Piloswine rumbled behind him, with the violent chorus of footfalls beginning and drawing closer. The Gengar himself was already floating as fast as he could out of the entrance, squinting against the blinding reflection of the snow outside. Just outside the exit the ground sloped downwards towards a thick pine forest. He gestured to the others. "Down the hill! Quick! We don't want any of them to catch up to us!"

Finn started to run from the entrance towards the hill. Though it was mostly snow packed, the depth of it could slow them down if it got to deep. "Quickly! Now! Get out of the caverns!" Ark grabbed Jack by the scruff since the snow could become a problem for the Pikachu on the way down. "Down the hill! Quick! We don't want any of them to catch up to us!" The Braixen was running as fast as he could down the hill wasting no time on looking back. "Bloody hell, that kid really messed this up for us now!" The fire type shouted while running. Jack however being held by the scruff had watched the sides for any possible escape routes to get out of the path. Come on, where is a place we could hide at so they can pass by without us getting trampled to death. As he kept a sharp eye out for anything for them to use. It took just one look from behind to know that they're about to see the Piloswine stampede.

The electric type started listening to whatever was behind and all he could hear was screaming as if they was angry and spooked at the same time. "Did Hikirio do all this? It doesn't make much sense to head back inside where the undead could still be in there." Even if Jack had figured it out, it wouldn't make much sense to as why Hikirio made such a decision to avoid towns. Sooner or later he'll run out of supplies and be forced to hunt for food, but that was his own decision. Before long, Jack spotted a fork in the path where there's enough trees to obscure them from view. "There! Turn to the right Ark, we could hide." Finn looked to his right seeing the same thing Jack was seeing. "Crickey, that'll keep us hidden until they pass!" As they was coming up towards it.

Yuri getting onto Ark's rather broad back made him shift in the snow just a touch. She was light, far lighter than he was expecting; was it just the dress that she wore that made her come across as so heavy? Who knows! But Ark ran his furry hide down the side of the mountain without even a second thought, sprinting at speed he leaped over a couple of rocks and did a rather hard power slide down the side as he avoided a Mammoswine that had tripped and came barreling down the side in a roll.

Bolting toward the Treeline pointed out by Jack and the weirdly australian Fire-Fox, Ark was panting a bit now with Jack in his mouth, he sprinted for the trees and ducked into them stopping amongst the grove and putting poor jack down who probably had a nasty wet spot where Ark had grabbed him. "Alright.." he panted out.

"Bloody hell, that kid really messed this up for us now!" They could definitely say that again. With the rampant horde of angry Piloswine right at their heels, it's a wonder that they're even managing to outrun them—let alone not trip and fall. Yuri held onto Ark with her life—casting a glance behind her to see the mob beginning to gain speed. If only she could understand what these Pokemon were saying, then maybe—just maybe—she could've helped them, could've gotten the Ninetales to stay, could've prevented this from happening.

Dal was levitating down as fast as he could, keeping a close eye on all members of the group. "Did Hikirio do all this? It doesn't make much sense to head back inside where the undead could still be in there." The Gengar as too busy trying to stay out of the ice-types' way to answer, only producing an exasperated grunt. "There! Turn to the right Ark, we could hide."

At Jack's cue, the Gengar immediately made the sharp turn at the thicket of trees, nearly barreling into a trunk as he did so. Slowing to a halt, he breathed heavy. "Arceus...Arceus..." he grunted. "Is...Is everyone alright? Ok? Nobody hurt?" Dal asked, glancing at all of them before squinting skywards; through the gaps between the leaves the afternoon sun shown brightly upon them, almost blindingly.

"We...did it." he rasped. "We're out. We're outside."

Ark panted heavily and crouched down in the snow to give his legs a rest from the sprint, downhill required allot of control so you didn't go tail over head on the way down. He didn't mind Yuri's weight on him, he was used to that and she honestly felt like a feather over some of the heavier individuals he's carried. He just wanted to get comfortable and did so, bunching his body up like most cats do, paws tucked underneath and ready to go at a moments notice with his tail curled around one side.

"I'm fine here. All good. Though.. we need to rest a bit and plan our trip out from here to the town. Safest to stick together and get through this."

The entire herd raced down the opposite end of where they was. Both Jack and Finn kept silent as the herd passed the forest. As the last Piloswine passes the stampede had left a clear path down the mountain with the snow pact into the ground. "Arceus...Arceus..." Dal was grunting. "Is...Is everyone alright? Ok? Nobody hurt?" Jack nodded that he was okay and Finn had a minor scratch from a stick, but he was okay. "I'm okay Dal, Finn looks okay too." Sounds of the Gengar's breathing had shown he was winded a bit, but was still able to be heard. "We...did it." This was a good thing since they've been trying to get out of that hellhole of a cavern for hours. "We're out. We're outside." Now that they're out of that cave, where should they head to next? They still have a ways to go to reach town and there's bound to be houses along the way they could settle in for the night. "These trees won't do us much good for shelter mates, my minds itching to find a cottage or something nearby to huddle up in." Finn said.

Pulling the stick out of his tail, Finn checked if the fire would still start and it luckily did. However when he looked at the scratch on his arm he noticed a slight amount of blood on his fur. It wasn't much and it stopped after a minute or two. The Braixen grabbed some snow and used it to clean the blood off his fur. "I'm fine here. All good. Though.. we need to rest a bit and plan our trip out from here to the town. Safest to stick together and get through this." Jack looked at Ark when he said that and agreed to both of the plans from Finn and Ark. The Pikachu wondered where the next town is. Since the larger electric type and the fire fox knew Kalos better, they'd know where to go.

With Ark laying down for a bit, the electric type decided to talk with Dal on what they should do first. "I'm not sure if we lost any supplies in that stampede, but what should we do first since those two know this region better than us." As the pikachu was having a conversation with Dal, The fire type walked out of the trees looking down the mountain range. "For bloody arceus sake, if I ever see that kid again I'll give him a piece of my mind. That stampede could of been avoided if he came with us instead." As he snarled some more, the thoughts of Hikirio had made him angrier and the braixen just wanted to forget he ever met that Ninetails. Just before he turned back towards the others he spotted what looked like a cottage down a ways but reachable. "Looks like there's a cottage down a ways mates, but I think we can reach it before the sun starts to set." Assuring that they'd have somewhere to warm up. Jack nodded and hopped onto Ark riding with Yuri since it would be easier for Ark to get through the snow than the Pikachu could. "If that's the case, then I'm not objecting to it. What do you think Dal, worth a look to call it a day?" Asking the Gengar on confirmation.

Ark shifted as the Pikachu got onto him. "Don't badmouth him Braxien." He said angrily. "Stampede would of come one way or another with us there. Thank you." He growled a little and began to walk off towards toe cottage. "You also need to learn that there's better ways to survive here than just living in human settlements and homes. You got fur, you got fire." He adds.

He glances back to his packs "We got what I have on me. Its all there still. We'll ration it out until we find more. Then we'll need to hunt to supplement our intake." He continued down toward the cottage, keeping a gentle pace now, a casual walk so his legs could recover from a down hill sprint.

Drake was miles away from the mansion that he had lived in for most of his life and the cold mountain air had not been fairing well for him. Damn this is cold, hopefully there's a house somewhere to warm up. I just hope Henry is okay. Of course he's okay, he was trained with a gun. The Charmeleon thought as he walked through the snow. The fire type even wondered if his parents was okay. He hasn't seen them since his master left as well as the master's pearents. Either way, he was determined to get through this alive. Drake looked down at the ground noticing the bending light in the snow before his eyes couldn't look at it no further. He snaps his head away from the ground covering his eyes for a moment before feeling the ground underneath his feet began to shake. "Huh? an earthquake? No more feels like a..." Squinting his eyes for a moment he seen several figures come running towards him. "Stampede!" Running towards the trees, the charmeleon hid behind the third row of trees as the shaking intesified. His heart was racing as he watched as the herd come rushing by smashing into one another and the first row of trees being smashed into as well. Peaking his head out from behind the tree, the Piloswine's eyes was normal but hand an angry look to them. As they passed, Drake came out and looked up the slope spotting a cottage in the middle of nowhere.

There seemed to be a bit of a walk to it, but if he makes it there, he should be able to warm up from the cold. "A cottage? In the middle of nowhere? Hopefully there's wood in the fireplace to burn." Drake started making his way up the slope towards the cottage. Looking back seeing the town in bad shape, the fire type wasn't going to attempt to go through there alone. Turning his head back to facing the cottage, Drake marched his way towards it through the snow. "I should be able to get there before it gets any colder." Drake said to himself while walking.

At the very least, Dal was glad that they were all ok—if only just out of breath—and there were no injuries to be seen. It would be fatal if any of them had been wounded at this point, especially if anything decided to give chase. The Gengar slowly regained his composure, getting ready to respond to his Pikachu friend when Finn strode out of the trees. "For bloody arceus sake, if I ever see that kid again I'll give him a piece of my mind. That stampede could of been avoided if he came with us instead." Well, that's certainly a sentiment he shared. "Looks like there's a cottage down a ways mates, but I think we can reach it before the sun starts to set."

"If that's the case, then I'm not objecting to it. What do you think Dal, worth a look to call it a day?"

Dal gave a firm nod as he casted a quick look over to his trainer. "Sounds good—let's start moving before it gets any colder, or before something finds us in these woods." Already he was floating at a good pace beside Ark, taking care to make sure Yuri was comfortable on top of the electric-type.

The Luxray certainly wasn't so happy about Finn's comments about Hikirio, and although Yuri was unable to properly understand what was going on, she could at least infer the lion's anger through his growls and grumbles. Oh...I hope they're not fighting... Gently, she ran a few thin fingers through the Luxray's mane in hopes of easing his worries—even if it was just a little—as she kept careful watch of the forest around them.

Though she may not have spectacular hearing nor did she possess an extraordinary sense of smell, Yuri still had a sharp eye. She could still easily make out images both near and distant from her, and quickly discern anything out of place; it wasn't long before she spotted just the briefest speck of...gold? Orange? Through the trees against the white backdrop of the snow. Without a word she raised her arm, fingers curled against her palm and her index pointing straight towards where she spotted the figure, something yellow-ish in the distance. Another Pokemon...?

Jack being on Ark with Yuri on him as well had made it easier, but before long Ark began lashing out at the Braixen. "Don't badmouth him Braxien." Finn turned and looked at the electric feline with an angry look to him. "Stampede would of come one way or another with us there. Thank you." The fire type clutched his twig ready to pull it out and fight if it came to that in retaliation. The Luxray has no idea what it was like growing up and living with a bank robber. Of course Ark didn't stop there, he was going to push Finn into breaking in anger and attack. "You also need to learn that there's better ways to survive here than just living in human settlements and homes. You got fur, you got fire." Fire started building up on Finn's fist like he was about to punch Ark with it. Jack however looked at Finn shaking his head telling him that its not worth getting chased away. In a moment's notice he punched the tree luckily it didn't catch fire. "Bloody Arceus damn it!" The fire fox was angry, but he quickly regained his posture after the others looked at him. After that he remained quiet.

Afterwards Dal agreed to head to the cottage. They wouldn't last long out in the open if the temperature got colder at least most of them would be to cold to do anything. "Sounds good—let's start moving before it gets any colder, or before something finds us in these woods." Jack looked at Ark when he mentioned the remaining supplies. Looks like they still have enough for a few days at best.   "We got what I have on me. Its all there still. We'll ration it out until we find more. Then we'll need to hunt to supplement our intake." Sounds like whatever is left is all they got. The Pikachu doesn't know much about hunting since he's never really hunted before except for berry picking. "Huh, well only thing I know how to hunt for is berries if that helps, but I don't know about hunting for other things. Foraging was all I knew." Living near Mount Silver had proved that part since Jack had foraged for berries when it was close to dinner.

Then before Jack turned his head downhill, the electric type seen Yuri pointing at something. It looked like a yellowish orange pokemon, but it couldn't be Cory. Cory's dead as well as Spot. So who was the pokemon that Yuri was pointing at. "Hey Dal, what's that down there? It looks like another pokemon and its hard to tell for sure what kind it is, but maybe we should go say hi to it." Riding on Ark's back was more relaxing than being head by the scruff. "Say Ark, when you was with your human, what was they like and did they raise you from your baby days?" Recalling his past, he loved his human so much, but along the way down Jack could feel something wasn't right. Something had happened before he got there. Until they reached the cottage time would play its factor on what they'll find.

Mountain Side | Afternoon | 29

The Braxien cursing loudly "Bloody Arceus damn it!" and striking a tree with a flaming fist got a look from Arkturus that was one of extreme warning. He was carrying someone and if that attack had been for him then there would be all sorts of hell to pay on that little ball. He was getting rather angry with the Braxien's blazen display and began to walk on with Dal at his side and Yuri on his back.

Her touch though, fingers running through his Mane got him to calm down just a little, instinctively he leaned into the touch. It'd been a long time since he'd felt that kind of feeling, ever since he left his old trainer and gone out on his own. He could see in the distance it was another Pokemon, something fiery from what he could tell. The obvious colouration, the tail flame and size spoke of something different. Possibly a lizard? "Hnnh, another? Interesting to see out this way. Hopefully not hostile." He comments as he continues toward the Cottage. His tail lashed about as was typical for a feline in annoyance, the last thing they needed was more hostility from others. The cottage itself was a simple single storey building that he could see that would provide ample shelter for them.

"Hey Dal, what's that down there? It looks like another pokemon and its hard to tell for sure what kind it is, but maybe we should go say hi to it. Say Ark, when you was with your human, what was they like and did they raise you from your baby days?"

"No he didn't. He raised me since I was a shinx but not when I was a cub. I was raised by my parents for a good few years in a large park. So it does provide a good bit of knowledge of both worlds."

Drake continued making his way to the cottage as he felt the cold brisk wind starting to pick up. The Charmeleon began to cross his arms as he was trying to warm back up, but he was just twenty yards away from the cottage. "Finally, I can get out of this cold." However, he spotted some other pokemon and an unusual human coming towards it as well. At the very least on Drake's mind was being a bad guest. Finally making it to the door, he opens the door to find a bed, a few chairs and a fireplace with wood inside. The Fire type looked around some more in case there was undead hiding inside and so far there was nothing to be found. "At least its safe, Mom, Dad, Master, I wonder if they're safe?" After checking around he went to see if there was more firewood. There was only one log remaining and it looked freshly cut. Looks like he'll have to find more if the other pokemon was heading towards the cottage as well. For now though he'll have to get a fire started. Drake used flamethrower and lit the fireplace up getting a fire going. "There, hopefully this will last for a few hours." The cottage started heating up and Drake felt his body warming up again from the cold. However, food was another issue and the Charmeleon wen to check for food. The small cooler unit was empty. His only hope now is if he went hunting for food.

Drake didn't have any knowledge on hunting since he's never hunted before. Now he wondered if the other pokemon knew how to hunt for food. I never learned to hunt, I wonder if those other pokemon and that unusual human knows how to hunt. The Charmeleon thought to himself as he continued to warm up in the cottage. Before he got fully warmed up the wind began to get stronger and Drake knew what that meant. Sounds like another storm is coming in, hopefully they make it here before it gets bad. Drake started waiting as long as it took, but once again he wondered about his parents and his master.

The high tensions was certainly a bother—Dal admits—but he had better things to worry about than his traveling companions getting hissy with each other. He has a trainer to look after. The Gengar followed behind the Luxray diligently, only pausing for a brief moment to look the direction that Yuri's frail hand pointed towards. Something golden within the trees—a Pokemon?

Jack piped up. "Hey Dal, what's that down there? It looks like another pokemon and its hard to tell for sure what kind it is, but maybe we should go say hi to it."

"I'm not so keen on the idea of just waltzing up to a stranger and—" though he stated directly what was on his mind, he trails off when he witnesses the mystery Pokemon near the cottage before heading on inside. From its motor skills and observed actions thus far it didn't seem infected—is it the owner of the cabin? "...well, now I guess we don't have a choice," he grumbled. "Lets be careful."

As they neared the cottage Yuri craned her head and carefully balanced on Ark's back as she leaned to the side, attempting to catch a glimpse inside, and perhaps of the Pokemon, through one of the building's frosted windows. Though futile, she did manage to briefly see the warm hues and glow of a flame; was that the Pokemon, or something else?

Dal carefully approached one of the walls and furrowed his brow. He drops his voice to a low murmur. "...be on your guard. We don't know if its infected at all—or maybe just hostile—" he whispers as she floats towards the door. He gives a few hesitant knocks onto the frame of the door. "Hello?"

Mountainside | Afternoon | 30

Arkturus puffed up slightly, fuzzing out his fur giving him the look of a rather overly fuzzy Luxray. Especially that luxurious Mane he had around his lovely neck, chest and shoulders. He followed along the side of Dal though stepped back a bit in case the goldielocks that walked into the building was hostile or infected, young Yuri wouldn't get hit by any attacks that would come.

He focused though on the building, his eyes flashing, glowing briefly as he saw beyond the wood and stone within and spied what looked like a Dinosaur. No? It was.. a Charmeleon. He could see it in all its glory, possibly in a manner that'd get him slapped. He looked to jack and brought a paw to his muzzle and then pointed towards the building, his eyes tracking the Charmeleon. "Dal, its a Charmeleon.. Fire type.." He whispered quietly. He didn't know all to much about them aside from being flaming, highly aggressive and combative.

It was a pokemon he didn't want to get involved in a fight with, at least not at the moment with the young woman on his back.

Outside the frost cavern|Late Afternoon

Drake sat as he waited for anyone to show up then suddenly he heard knocking on the door. "Hello?" He turned his attention to the door, his heart was beating a bit fast, but there was a window looking out by the door. His eyes widened as he seen a Gengar and Two other pokemon, but where's the third one? Looking down a bit further he seen a Luxray that was staring right at him. The Charmeleon swallowed deeply. The fire type wouldn't last in a fight with that electric type at all, but the pikachu doesn't look that strong. Then Drake answers. "Are you guys survivors? I'll let you in, I just got a fire started." Drake hops down from the chair and opens the door. As he does the charmeleon stares right into the Gengar's eyes. The fire type had fear creeping up his spine and his eyes shown fear in them. This was one ghost type he dared not mess with. Damn, if I even try to take on the ghost I stand no chance against him, but maybe if we join forces we'll be able to get through that town when its time. After that he looked at the Luxray seeing the Pikachu and a human riding on him.

Gazing upon the human, Drake had readied himself to speak to her if she knew english well enough. "Come on in, wasn't there another pokemon with you like a fox or something I could have sworn there was a figure like a fox." The fire type had walked back to the fireplace and sat down keeping an eye on the fire in case he needed to throw the last log in. Perhaps he could talk with the human to see if she has any idea of what is happening. "Perhaps this is a good of a time as any to introduce myself. My name is Drake and I'm from a mansion in Anistar City. Born and raised here in Kalos. So do you all know what is going on? The other pokemon are acting like zombies for some reason." That was an understatement, they were zombies and Drake was the witness of its horror when they broke into the mansion. "Anyways who are all you guys and lady?" Asking them of who they was might bring some trust in them.

Outside Frost Cavern || Late Afternoon
Clover 34 || Kolven 11

((Post count carried from Fuchsia))


The sun was just starting to sink as it cast bright pockets of blinding light and shadow across the snow. The trees and hills did their best to soften its blaring gaze, but between it and the deep, freezing snow it was difficult to make any headway in the frozen land. A pair of Meowth's were weaving their way slowly through the forest, clearly misplaced and disorientated. The male had taken the lead and kept his head low to the ground to protect it from wind chill, but every now and then he would raise it high and look further ahead. Still nothing? Beyond him he can see nothing but trees and snow, a mix of dark brown, white, and green. Surely there had to be something else out here.

A breeze whipped forward, tossing white flecks at the male Meowth's face before he could shield himself. A harsh shiver ran down the length of his spine, a snowflake landing right on his nose and melting before he could swipe it away. "Sure is cold, ey Clovie?" He breathes lightly, tossing a glance back at his sister. It was cold the day before when they arrived here. It was freezing by the next morning, let alone after their trek throughout the day. The female only gave a low moan, her hobbling steps ever following her brother. "Im shocked," he gasped, slowing his pace to catch his breath. "We should of hit a settlement by now." It didn't matter if it was human or Pokemon, they had barely seen hide or hair of another creature aside from the stray undead.

The female moved much slower, her steps labored and uneven as she came closer and closer to him. She couldn't quite feel the cold but it pulled and dragged at her body. Everything seemed heavy and slow, the haze that surrounded her thoughts and vision growing thicker and thicker. "Rrroooww..." she wheezes as her limbs finally give in to Kolven's exhausting pace. Slumping against the next tree that she passed Clover's pelt rubs against its bark as she falls and its dark flecks shower her pelt. "Clovie!" Kolven gasps, springing toward her like a snowshoe hare in a sudden burst of panic. "Clover, you alright? Need to stop?" Worry edges his mew as the cat comes close to check her over. Clover's head shifts, her good eye forcing itself to focus on the other Pokemon. "T..tired.." The single word was a struggle but it was enough to convey her needs.

Kolven was panting, the surge of panic too much on his weary frame. With a deep breathe he smothers his fears, forcing a smile to weakly spread across his cheeks. "Just hang in there, alright? I'll find us somewhere to stop for the day, promise! By tomorrow we'll be out of this snow." Pressing his face into her cheek, and ignoring the bitter cold of her pelt, the male turns and starts to head off into the trees. "I just need you to stay there, okay Clovie? Can you stay put for me? I'll be right back but I need you to stay here." Kolven prayed repeating his request would help it get to her and, as Clover's head slumped back onto her paws, he assumed he succeeded. He took a few more steps forward and was shocked by how well her pelt melted into the snow. The dark, dirty patches of soil under the tree matched that of her pelt, and if you weren't looking you'd almost miss the downed undead.

Trying to get bearings on his direction Kolven tore off into the trees, looking for anywhere, anything the cats' could use to bed down in. Pokemon live everywhere. There has to be something out here. If he could find a burrow, or a nest, or a-- "Mew have mercy," he exclaims while coming to a sudden halt. Was that a cabin, or a cottage of some sort? "What are the chances.." Not wanting to waste time or look a gift Ponyta in the mouth he charged forward, slowing only when he noticed the thin, fresh wisps of smoke coming from the structure. "..There's someone there." Had he found other Pokemon? A cold stone sinks through his bones into the pit of his stomach. Others weren't usually the kindest to his sister. But I don't have a choice. She needed this, she needed this.

Continuing his race forward the cat stopped a few feet short, catching his breath as best he could before making a slow approach. Whoever they were he doubted they would appreciate him barging in. Standing outside the door he tapped it gently with one paw. "H-hello?" He called not too loudly, praying for a response. "If anyone's there, I.. I hate to be a burden but my sister and I desperately need somewhere to rest.. We promise to leave your home in the morning!" Hunching out of exhaustion and not disrespect the feline pauses to breathe. Legends, he really needed to stop too. "Please.." He wheezed, orange eyes bright and hopeful beyond their exhaustion. Legends knew how long it'd take him to find somewhere else.


((Sorry for the delay and length! This came out a lot longer than I expected aha.))

Outside Frost Cavern|Late Afternoon
45|12

A blinding light had flashed right in front of Jack's eyes as both Dal and Yuri vanished right in front of him. This could only mean that they been summoned to somewhere else. Inside though Jack couldn't explain if this is a good or bad sign. Either way the pikachu wouldn't give up hope to one day reunite with them again. For now it was time to warm up and the Charmeleon was at least courteous enough to warm up the cottage. Finn however was prowling around outside letting off steam to calm himself. He walked a bit towards some trees near the cottage when he started seeing a shadow swinging from the branches. When he looked up there was a human corpse hung by a noose in what appeared to suicide. Using his psychic, the Braixen tossed a sharp rock to cut the rope and the body came down. The fire type took it upon himself to examine the human's body to see if it was his former trainer. There was no features pointing out to being the one Finn is looking for, but as he flipped the human onto his stomach the logo was matching what Jack described. "Ahh bloody hell, Jack isn't going to like this. Looks like he was bitten a few times before he hung himself." Looking at the waist down, there was a holster and a gun in it. After looking further down towards the leg Finn turned his head away as the wound on the leg looked fresh and recently been pecked at. "Best if Jack doesn't know until later. This would tear him up if I told him now." Afterwards the Braixen started walking back towards the cottage.

Laying on Ark's back, Jack looked at the ceiling of the cottage. There was some old webs that had dust all over it and they seemed abandoned for a long time. Then the door opened up with a voice calling out. "H-hello?" The Pikachu sat up and hopped off Ark to see what it was. "If anyone's there, I.. I hate to be a burden but my sister and I desperately need somewhere to rest.. We promise to leave your home in the morning!" When he looked around the corner it was a Meowth and he was surprised that one was all the way out here in the cold. "Please.." Hearing the plead for help Jack was willing to talk with the Meowth. "Hi, I'm Jack. You say you need a place to rest? I wouldn't see any problem to let you and your sister stay here. The more the merrier." The pikachu said with a smile. Now he just needed to ask Ark and Drake if they're willing to let two strangers stay with them. "You guys wouldn't have any objections to let the meowth and his sister stay here would you?" The electric type was willing to meet the meowth's sister and if they was heading in the same direction as they are going then maybe working together could be an option. One thing was on Jack's mind. Where was Finn? He seen the Braixen go to the other side of the cottage before they went in. Perhaps he's looking for something real quick.

The Braixen was returning to the cottage to warm up a little. Though is fur was warm enough to resist the cold to an extent, the mountain air had more than enough bite to it to penetrate the warm fur coat on the Fire type. "Crickey, this air's getting colder. Best get inside the cottage for the night." It wasn't long before he walked right up behind the Meowth that was inside with the others. "A meowth? How did you get here mate?" Jack looked at Finn before asking the Meowth his next question, but he said something to Finn wondering where he's been. "Where did you go Finn? Dal and Yuri's gone so its just us now." Turning his head back to the meowth. "Sorry, This is Finn he's kind of a strange character, but I think he means well. Anyways If its not to much trouble maybe I can go with you to get your sister. You might need some help in case some unexpected guests show up." Whether Jack realizes it that the sun would start setting soon and the undead would soon become more active, he was insisting on coming with the meowth to help him and his sister no matter what.

OoC)) Cinder, if its okay with you to have Jack follow Kolven to help him.

Mountainside - Cottage | Afternoon | 31

Arkturus settled down as the other two, the young human and Dal vanished out to handle whatever it was they were taken to handle. Such things were a mystery to all but Arceus himself. He headed into the cottage and began checking things out inside. It was warm and comfortable at least which he found to be far more enjoyable than the biting cold outside.

A little voice rang in though the door "H-hello? If anyone's there, I.. I hate to be a burden but my sister and I desperately need somewhere to rest.. We promise to leave your home in the morning!" His voice was young, innocent sounding to Ark and it caught his attention. He focused along the wall and toward the door and saw the outline of a Meowth there, it was certainly unusual to see him. He mentioned a sister though she was not present with him. Perhaps left somewhere further away just in case things got nasty? Ark shook his head with bits of snow being flung out of that wonderfully soft and thick mane of his.

Jack seemed to be handling it though and even introduced himself, Ark spoke up finally as he hopped up onto a couch that was still nice and soft with little damage to it. His satchels made laying down a little uncomfortable and sadly would squish the softer contents. He shifted slightly and looked to Jack and Meowth "I'm Arkturus. As long as they don't cause trouble they should be fine." The large Luxray said. His eyes still held that eerie glow as he scanned the area beyond the cabin. This seemed.. fishy "Bring them down here. Jack you stay. No real offense to you there Meowth but I'd rather not risk a member of our group to a potential trap. Especially when dealing with another predator." His eyes focused on the Meowth intimidatingly.

Ark was a little tired, he could feel himself not sporting as much energy as he had earlier. Probably from the warmth inside the building and the comforts that were being afforded. Though with the alertness from a new potential threat that was there before them, Ark found his second wind of reserve energy and stayed on alert.
