To absolutely nobody's surprise, the girl does not lose any of her unfailing enthusiasm. "My name's Courtney," she says, and that grin fails to leave her face, much to Registeel's now-tedious irritation. "The silver fox is Spirit, the noodle is Flame, and Blaze is holding him." What on earth was a noodle? Judging by the so-called "noodle's" look of displeasure, it has to be another insult that only humans used. This "Courtney" is gifted with them. Spirit is far more respectful with their bow, and Registeel holds no doubts as to which of the Pokemon he won't hold any desire to step on.
However, even after his clear warning, Courtney refuses to tone down her unbearable personality; Registeel refuses to think of the fact that this is what he will be having to deal with for however much time it took to get to his brother. If he was persistent, then surely she would come to realise that her chipper ways would get nowhere with him. It was not the most sound of plans, but better that than potentially encouraging her. "Okay! You're the boss. Lead the way!" Yes. Finally. As he's thought countless times up until right now, Registeel can feel the seconds and minutes wasting away with each word he and this human exchange. With this problem solved for the most part, his mission could actually continue again, instead of him only thinking of it.
As Courtney recalls her pets into unfamiliar human contraptions, Registeel pities the creatures; he, too, knows what it is like to be kept in what was essentially a prison. It was truly a shame that they did not know what it meant to be wild, and free from the obsessive grasp of mankind. He says nothing as Courtney releases another Pokemon, a Flying-type of all things and, unlike himself, not suited to the hostile environment. What was she thinking, sending them into the sandstorm? "Flier, I need you to scout from the air, see if you can spot what we're looking for. Actually-- Regi, what are we looking for exactly?" The fact that he already knows where he's going does not even cross Registeel's mind-he has never been called "Regi" in his life and he does not appreciate the nickname.
"Registeel," he corrects her; there was nothing difficult about remembering his name when he was literally made completely of metal. "There is no need for your bird. My destination is close." He points to the distant rocks jutting out of the sand, and though they were obscured by the sandstorm, that did not make the Ruins impossible to spot. "Those are the Desert Ruins. In the center is both the cavern and the chamber where Regirock is now, and as you can see, it is not far."
