Rose simply rolled her eyes, catching up to Leon. Once beside him, Rose punched him lightly on the shoulder. "Shot gun," she called, glancing at him for a second to shoot him a smile. As she approached the Onyx, Rose searched the purple nidoran. She caught sight of him fighting along side Scythe, the two of them teaming up to fend off the Kabutos from the Pokecenter. Scythe flitted through the automatic doors and came out within a few seconds, many Pokeballs between its bladed arms. It set them down in the overfilled cart with the Chansey and Nurse Joy. Oz turned to see Rose and Leon, as well as Leon's Pokemon approaching a large Pokemon. It turned to its ally and let out a sound. The bug Pokemon understood and gave a nod. The pair made quick work of the remaining Kabutos, as well as their reinforcements, first ensuring the safety of the Pokecenter's inhabitants before turning to return to their trainer.
Oz dashed to Rose and climber up the side of her leg, much to her displeasure. It entered her bag and popped its head out moments later, looking down at Leon's Nido. It chirped a greeting. Scythe walked up behind Leon, in no hurry to catch up to Rose. Even still, it she was glad they were okay.
Rose positioned herself behind the gym leader and let out a sigh.
"Don't worry, Leon's not too great at first impressions," she assured with a slight laugh.
"It seemed like it's north." She paused. "We'll bring her home."
