Pokemon Era: Unovan Odyssey
The clangor of her mother's voice echoed Tepig....make sure you get Tepig...Our name depends on it... as Ramiza rode in the sky of her family's traveling Unfezzant, an agile flying-type that soars in the air, grasping onto her brother as they dove towards their destination
A small yet quiet town, with plenty of little huts to accompany the simple and down-to-earth atmosphere as the two descended onto the ground.
"Do I have to pick Tepig....?" The young girl asked disappointed
Her older brother sighed and scolded "Yes Ramiza, you do, it'll make mom and dad happy! Besides, Tepig is a great starter!"
"But what about what makes me happy!?" As the two began traveling, the oldest brother taking lead as he pointed the two in the right direction through his experience
"Look, at first mom and dad seem harsh and all, but I promise you they're doing this for your best interest! Tepig will grow on you....I swear!" as he put his hands behind his back, walking towards a laboratory, a sterilized grey edifice twas.
The laboratory was a great building with activity going on everywhere, men in lab coats running around, children getting their first starters. As her older brother was checking them at the front desk Ramiza noticed a child and her starter, a green snake-like Pokemon and he called on it
"Alright Snivy! Let's goo!" he cheered
"Sniivvvyyy" The Pokemon replied
The young gal looked in awe at the Pokemon and it's elegant structure and appeal, almost a little snotty at the same time.
"Okay Ramiza! You're up next..let's go! Gosh it feels like yesterday since I was in here getting my Tepig...those were the days." As the two proceeded down a narrow hallway, upon reaching the end a giant grey door opened to a room where a friendly female face in a lab coat appeared, her crazy hairdo reminded anyone of the 80's but her hip red sneakers, green skirt and simple white top made her return to modern times.
"Ram!! It's been so long!" The Professor ran over and gave him a hug, after looking at the new girl "Ahh, another Patel huh? Not to worry I already have a Tepig just for you..." Looking at Ramiza and smiling.
The young professor turned to a device that carried three pokeballs on it "How's your Tepig doing Ram!?"
"Oh, he's doing great, check it out professor!" As he pulled out a pokeball and out came a plump orangey pig, tall and puffed out chest.
"Oh how wonderful! Your Tepig is now a Pignite! Congratulations Rahil!" The professor gave a little clap as she turned to the device and plucked a pokeball, handing the Pokeball to the younger sibling.
"And this, will be your Tepig! Congratulations Ramiza, I'm excited and anxious to see how you will hold your family name" the good female professor smiled.
The young starter looked at her pokeball, then the professor, at her brother, and then the pokeball again, before taking it out of the knowledgeable professor's hand.
"Well uh...I'm gonna try out Tepig! So I'll see you later professor!"
The good professor nodded "Very well, good luck and have fun!" turning to the older man and continuing there discussion "So, how are mom and dad...? as the
One of the assistant's then walked up to the young trainer and installed a Pokedex into her hip and cool PokeGear, running through the basics with her as she fiddled with the information handed to her, trying to memorize and remember what she was told, looking at the instructions and map given to her on her PokeGear. As she shuffled through the data before she saw the boy from before.
Ramiza looked down at her pokeball, before looking down at the boy and then back at her pokeball. The Indian gal quickly stormed over to him
"Let me break it down for you, newbie." Looking straight at the kid in the eye
I really hope this works...
"You're gonna get that Snivy, you're going to go on an adventure with that Snivy, you're going to love and train with that Snivy..." She then dramatically paused "...and then, in the black of some night, I'm going to come and kill that Snivy." Abruptly ending the sentence with another pause.
"Unless you hand that Snivy over to me and take my Tepig."
"So you're all good to know, right?" Her concerned older brother asked.
The young girl nodded "Mhm! I'm all set brother, thanks again!" giving him a quick hug
"OK! I'll let mom and dad know, and remember, Striation City is the first gym." before summoning a pokeball and allowing for the standard flying-type to pop out, as the older man jumped onto the saddle on it's back.
"Call me if you need anything!" as he snapped his fingers which signaled the bird to soar into the sky
"Got it! Bye bro!" As she waved to her mid-flight sibling before turning to her pokeball and smiling
"ALRIGHT SNIVY!" Ramiza exclaimed "I guess it's just you and me!" as the Patel gal exited the town and headed toward the first route.
"This is going to be great, I'm going to do things differently! Sure I might have to do a little lieing about the whole Snivy thing...but it'll be totally worth it!" As she began talking to herself outloud, going through the winding road
"Screw the family name! This is my journey, and I'm going to do this my way!" As she finished her mini-pep talk, suddenly a familiar voice chimed in from behind
"I knew I smelt curry from afar..."
The Indian girl stopped in her tracks and turned around, only to match a familiar voice to a familiar face.
"Claire!" As a smile was brought on the social girls face, scanning her familiar friend, the same old Claire she was. With her wavy blonde hair and a very proper half-sleeve top with ruffles in the center, a french bowtie in the center and a proper vest alongside. She had a traditional ruffled skirt that is reminiscent of schoolgirl skirts and long socks.
"Hey Ramiza! Starting your journey too!?" as she brought her arms out
"Mhm! Same for you girl?" as she returned with an embraced
"Indeed, so what starter are you using!?" Claire asked putting her hands on her hips
"Snivy...." Shifting her eyes around and shrugging innocently
The young preppy girl gasped "Miss Ramiza Patel! I am utterly shocked...what does Mama Patel have to say about this!?"
"Well, Mama Patel does not know! And I want to keep in that way!" Giving Claire the familiar look of 'keep your mouth shut' before asking "What about you?"
"Same actually, but gosh it's such a nuisance! I was begging for a Oshawott! Our Snivy's should be gal pals! As we are, let's say we let them play!?" As she pulled her pokeball out,
Ramiza nodded and pulled hers out to "Mhm! Plus we could have a little battle later on maybe..."
Claire nodded as she said "Come out, Snivy!" As she allowed the snake-like grass-type to pop out.
Ramiza squeeled with excitement "ALRIGHT SNIVY! Let's goooo!" releasing the grass-type out of it's pokeball, but to her suprised what materialized wasn't a Snivy, it was a tiny otter-creature, looking curiously at it's enviroment, first at Ramiza and then Snivy, and then Claire.
Ramiza's eyes widened "WHAT!? THIS ISN'T A SNIVY!" Putting her hands on her face "OH GOD THAT LITTLE BRAT"
Claire simply chuckled at first, and then let out a loud laugh "AHAHA! Oh Ramiza....what a girl you are. You should've at least checked before making the trade..."
"I couldn't! My brother was coming and I just...." putting her hand on her forehead "...I wanted a Snivy." Looking down in disappointment
"Awww, cheer up Emotional Ertha. I have a solution that will suit both parties!" materializing her Pokemon as she spoke "Since I want a Oshawott and you want a Snivy, why don't we do a little switcheroo here? Just one more trade and you'll get the starter of your dreams and I'll get mine! What do you say girl?"
The gal looked up and smiled "Really!?" Fumbling with her pokeball as she returned the tiny water-type starter. "You'd do that for me!?"
"Sure, whatever you want to call it! Here you go my dear!" Handing over her pokeball to the Indian gal
Ramiza smiled and gladly received, giving her friend the other "Oh thank you soo much!!"
"No problem sweetie, anyways, I better be heading out, so I'll see you around hun! I hope you'll be coming to my contests on the way!" As the young coordinator began walking away.
"Definitely! Just give me a text.." As she was struck staring at her pokeball
"...Okay! So I finally have you...now it's time! Let's go kick some Pokemon butt Snivy!" Holding her pokeball high in the air in triumph

Power over the bent
(What a fucking epic and lengthy post Key. jegus I don't know how I can match that!)
"There it is...a whole new region to explore!" Ashley quietly whispered to herself. The Flying Heights, one of the many new high-tech traveling blimps that ferried passengers to and fro the regions of the Pokemon World, finally broke cloud cover.
The Unova region was in view as the zeppelin made a steady descent to the brownish-green landmass below. Whitish wisps of coastline became apparent as the vehicle continued its controlled plummet. After several more minutes, Ashley could finally see her destination distinguish itself from the lush greenery of Unova. Accumula Town at first appeared as no more than a few square lumps on a vernal backdrop, but it soon became a distinguishable burg with many bustling streets and a few surprisingly tall buildings. While not the most booming town around, it certainly appeared to be a good first stop on a journey!
"Aaaaaatention everyone, this is your Captain! Please buckle up while we establish landing with our terminal in Accumula Town! I'll remind everyone to ready their passports and prepare to breathe your first fresh breath of Unovan air! Ahhhhh! Thank you for flying Flying Heights, your go-to for all of your aerial needs!"
It was time. Ashley moved through the small crowd of confused passengers, her goal much clearer than her fellow passengers. Flashing her blimp ticket to get through the gate, the trainer quickly made her way to Customs and prompt;y got everything arranged. Trainers were granted temporary citizenship when they entered a new region. Ashley thought it was fair to consider herself a minor ambassador of sorts, and she would do her best to represent the good name of the Kanto region!
"Miss...miss? Excuse me," An older woman tapped Ashley on the shoulder, temporarily dispelling her from her inner monologue. "Is that your bag?"
She pointed to a lone green bag scooching along on the baggage claim terminal. Apparently all of the other passengers had claimed their items, and Ashley's bag and slipped by her during her brief vision of grandeur.
"Oh...oh, yeah! Uhm, thanks!" The trainer haphazardly hurried after her mobile rucksack, barely avoiding a collision with a female employee. "Ohh, excuse me! Excuse me!"
Ashley snatched the straps of her bag before they disappeared back into the Carrier for another round, but not before unceremoniously bumping into another passenger.
"..Ashley? Ashley Pepper?!"
She cringed. Of all the people it were possible to bump into, she picked the one person in the world that gave her more trouble than finding somewhere to buy a decent weave?
"Oh hey, er..Patrick. What are you doing here?" She inwardly bit her tongue before approaching the line again. "I mean...well, you know..." Screw pleasantries, "Seriously, what the heck are you doing here?!"
"Heh," Patrick scoffed. He was a tall young man with wheat-colored hair and a smug way of smiling. He adjusted his narrow pair of glasses and nonchalantly brushed the shoulder that Ashley had plowed into. "Well, if you really want to know, my family and I spent the past few months in Unova seeing the region. We were just about to catch first-class back to Celadon..."
"Oh..." Ashley replied, unsure of what to say. "Well that sounds...great--nice, I mean, I guess if you have time for vacationing, why not..."
"So what brings you to the land of bridges and caves? Seeing the sights as well? You're certainly not dressed for the occasion." Patrick held his nose up so high that Ashley was momentarily afraid that he would bludgeon an overhead light.
"I'm...It just so happens that...Professor Juniper has asked me to stop by her laboratory! She's an old friend of the family, you know? So I thought that while I was in the neighborhood, I'd, well...Go on a journey! Through Unova! Yeah," She couldn't give Patrick the satisfaction of knowing her real motivation. Not after their last meeting.
Patrick shifted his stance, suddenly very intrigued. He pretended not to care, of course. "Well, well, well...Never would have guessed that you were back to this old hat. Walking down routes, challenging gyms, catching pokemon....Sounds so...mainstream." At this point it was almost impossible for Patrick to continue his feigned disinterest.
"Yeah, well whatever. So great to see you again, hun!" Ashley quickly took a few backwards steps and gave an overly-cheery wave. "I'm off to er, uh...you know. Juniper's place!"
"Nuvema Town?" He coolly responded.
"Yeah that's the one! Can always rely on you Patrick...! Byyyyyeeee!"
'Of all the airports, of all the people, of all the REGIONS! That little jerk just gets all under my skin!'
"Whatever. To...Nuvema Town!"
(Haha, awww, thanks! And no you definitely matched my post with epicness! Haha I just had a lot to cover and I wanted to get the boring beginning stuff over with :x)
As she held the pokeball with triumph the pokemon within popped out, and Snivy fell straight to the ground, looking around at first, then looking up at Ramiza
"Hiii Snivy! I'm your new trainer, Ramiza!" Getting down at Snivy's level and putting her hand out
Snivy simply looked at her for a moment, and then stuck her head up and turned around in defiance
Ramiza's eye widened "WHAT!? You're defying me...?"
Snivy nodded, as she began to walk forward, marching with her head held high
"...That pretentious little bitch..." The trainer whispered
"So" a voice called from behind "Looks like you got your Snivy, huh?"
"...Why do i keep getting stopped at this route?" As she turned around to see who it was.
The boy from before had a huge grin on his face, as he was walking alongside his Tepig whose redness matched with the red colored-hair that he had, his hair made into ginger spikes as Ramiza further inspected the boy had a fitted white t-shirt and blue stripes, along with a navy blue pair of pants as he walked with his hands in his pocket.
He's kind of....cu-okay no, no getting distracted! I am angry at him....
"YOU! You're the one who ripped me off!" pointing at the ginger furiously
"The names Chad, and yeah I did, so what!?" With a huge amount of attitude in that entire sentence being dropped down like the Nazi's and the London Bombings.
"Arrrgghhh...No ONE rip's off a Patel, and gets away with it!" Ramiza stepped forward aggressively, literally putting her foot down again.
Chad grinned and shrugged "Hey, I did you a favor...Snivy's are stupid anyways I don't know why you wanted one anyways."
A chord struck in the Snivy that wasn't exactly paying attention to the entire conversation anyways, and looked at the jerk-ish boy and stood in front of Ramiza and looked at the rival and his Pokemon.
Ramiza put her hand on her hip "So, you're thinking the same huh Snivy? Let's show these boys what a Patel trainer can do."
"Sniv!" As the grass-starter readied for battle.
Chad laughed "As if you're even gonna get a hit on me and Tepig, Alright Tepig, let's put these two in there place!"
"Teepiiiggg" As it readied itself in battle stance
And so the battle began, as Chad pointed with his finger "Tepig, Tackle on Snivy!"
"Tepppiggg!" As the tiny pig charged towards the pretentious snake
"Snivy! Dodge it and use Leer!" The Indian chick commanded.
"Sniivvvv!" As the agile snake jumped out of the incoming attacks way, unleashing a pretentious clangor from it's mouth that alarmed the fire piggy.
"Now hit it with Tackle Snivy!" Ramiza quickly commanded.
As Snivy, landed on the ground from dodging the first attack, the grass-type quickly jumped up again and charged the small pig, Chad only silently smirked
"You made this easier than planned, Alright Tepig! Tail Whip and then Tackle!"
"Tepiiiggg!" As the fire-type did a quick 360, hitting the incoming grass snake with his tiny tail
"Sniivv!" As the Pokemon took the hit
"Oh no Snivy!" As Ramiza put her hand over her mouth.
The fire type finished the routine by pulling his body backward a little and then leaping foward with a tackle that hit Snivy fair and square
"Sniiivvvyyyy!" as the grass-type skid and tumbled across the ground, leaving a trail of dust, that once settled showed the pretentious starter on the ground completely beaten up.
Chad laughed and gave a satisfying grin "What did I tell you? You couldn't even lay a finger on me. Nice job Tepig!" As he took his pokeball out and materialized the fire-type.
"Do yourself a favor, and quit now while you still can." As he began walking away from the girl and her damaged Pokemon, his hands in his pocket. Ramiza quickly ran to her aid, as she ran over to her.
"Snivy! Are you okay!?" She asked dropping down to her.
"Sni...vyyy...." The Pokemon was shaking a little as she looked at him in shock
"Oh who am I kidding, you're defintely NOT okay" As she picked up the starter type and ran
"Yep...I need you to file that into the computer and make sure you attach this-" As the Professor's instructions where cut short by a sudden burst into the laboratory's front lobby.
A young Ramiza was standing with her Snivy in her hands at the door, breathing heavily as she yelled
"....attach this document with it." As she handed over the document to her lab monkey, running over to the trainer in need.
"Well Ramiza, that's a very interesting and yet odd story, but how you manage to already get into a fight and faint this Snivy, is beyond me." As she began to aid the injured Snivy.
"I know, it was stupid. I'm sorry!" She looked down in dissapointment
"It's quite alright dear" Looking at her with patience and a bright smile before turning back to the Pokemon in-need "I thought you would've been happy with a Tepig, if you wanted a Snivy you should've told me and this mess wouldn't have happened in the first place!"
"I know but...my brother Ram was right there and, you know how my family is about Snivy's....and they just wanted me to have a Tepig so badly I just couldn't say no right in front of him."
The young professor sighed "Well....either way Snivy needs to rest now, So come with me dear." As she motioned for the young gal to come with her
"When you go on this journey, you will face tougher opponents and gym leaders, and you are a Patel. People will notice you or at least recognize you and word will spread across Unova. It's best if you just tell them now..."
"No Professor Juniper! I can't, my parents would disown me and I...I wanna prove to them first that I can be a great trainer without using a Tepig, and then I'll tell them." Ramiza explained as Professor Juniper ushered her down a narrow hallway
She let out one more sigh "Well, alright, as long as it's what you want, I won't tell your family but I can't just let you travel alone like this, normally I would call you brother Ram to travel alongside you but, since that's no longer an option..." The Professor thought for a moment "...You'd need someone else. Someone whose bright, someone whose had experience with Pokemon before. Someone whose going through what you're going through....someone like..." As they stepped into the main lobby again suddenly Professor Juniper's face lit up, as the person she was looking for walked in.
Power over the bent
"Oh crap, did I walk into another mental hospital?!"
Ashley stood in the doorway of the Juniper Lab looking rather confused. The doors automatically shut behind her, leaving a lab full of scientists and rookie trainers to eye her peculiarly.
"Ah, Ashley Pepper, I presume?" Came a clear female voice.
The trainer looked straight ahead to see an older (but still quite young, given the nature of the title "Professor") woman approaching her. She had a very tall hairstyle and walked with confidence, her white lab coat open to reveal a plain green shirt and short skirt. She had a pair of trendy sneakers on as well, and Ashley's entire concept of pokemon professor was suddenly turned on its head.
"Ohh, yes! That's me!" Quickly approaching Juniper, Ashley extended her hand and shook the good professor's hand. "Sorry I'm late, I'm really...not too familiar with Unova! And there are so many trainers on that route..."
"Not too worry! I'm so happy to finally meet you! Professor Oak has said nothing but praise in your direction!"
"Haha, oh, gee..." Ashley took the compliment, her dark complexion blushing slightly. She quickly exchanged glances with a younger girl a few steps behind Juniper, and Ashley smiled politely. "So, Professor Juniper, what is it that you and Professor Oak had planned?"
"Well, excellent question! You see, there has been talk of integrating Kanto and Unova pokemon species, so we thought it would be a good idea to exchange PokeDex information. I trust that you have one?"
"Er..yes, of course! Well, kind of!" Ashley pulled out her pink, high-tech cell phone. She turned the device on its side and pushed a button. A small rectangular microchip popped out. "This is actually a data chip for the current National Dex! My phone can only display a bit of data, but all the information is in here!"
Ashley handed over the data chip to Professor Juniper, who was absolutely aglow with wonder.
"Amazing! All the data on every recorded non-Unova pokemon! I'm getting shivers just thinking about it!" The young Professor said with a certain level of professional enthusiasm and insanity.
"...Er, but the thing is...Without that, I have no way to access my PokeDex!"
"Oh, don't worry! It shouldn't take me very long to utilize this ChipDex! In the meantime, I have a plan. Since I'm short in the way of actual PokeDexes, feel free to use Rameeza's!" Juniper quickly took a few steps back and grabbed the little ethnic girl out from the shadows, pulling her right up to Ashley. "You see, it's Unova tradition for rookie trainers to travel in groups! Rameeza here is having a bit of trouble, and something tells me that the two of you will get along! Rameeza comes from the Patel family, and their almost legendary here in Unova. You couldn't find a better companion!"
"Oh, well...It's nice to meet you, Rameeza," Ashley said, extending a hand to the younger girl. She truthfully wasn't excited by the prospect of having to babysit some newb, but she wasn't about to say that. Plus, she owed Professor Oak for his kind words. "I'm Ashley! Ashley Pepper!"
Ramiza smiled and grabbed the newcomers hand and shook it
Who the hell is this girl?
"Ramiza Patel! It's so nice to meet you!"
I mean, does she have the same experience as my brother? I don't think anyone can beat my brother, will she able be to properly train and hone my skills? Maybe I should've taken the Tepig and just been happy with that....
"So! Since I suppose we'll be traveling together...where are you from!? Tell me all about you! Also what brings you to Unova girl!?"
....I also just want to see if you're actually fit to be my teacher. I mean she seems pretty, also she has a nice weave, girls got style too...
Ramiza began walking to sit down and wait while Professor Juniper did what she had to do with Ashley's information, listening attentively to Ashley as she spoke
...Okay no, that doesn't matter, it's whats inside that matters! Is she a good person, a good trainer! Also I can't ask my brother, I can't go back from here, only forward! And this Ashley girl is just that ticket forward...hopefully!....
Ramiza nodded as Ashley spoke, widening her eyes to make the appearance she was giving her full attention to the black chick
...Yes Ramiza, that's right. Make it seem all about Ashley, make it the Ashley Show! Oh my god....I swear if anyone heard what goes on in my head they would think I'm insane.....I really need to stop thinking so much and just....do!....
Power over the bent
Professor Juniper went off into her lab to fiddle with the all-powerful ChipDex, leaving Ashley to get acquainted with her impromptu companion, Ramiza.
"It's nice to meet you! Well, I'm from the Kanto region," The experienced trainer began her brief biography. "Celadon City, to be exact. Although I'm a big city girl at heart, I love to travel and train pokemon! I made it to the Indigo League about a year ago, and I figured Unova would be a good goal next."
She pulled a pokeball off of her belt and clicked the central button to expand the sphere. "This is my parter!" There was a great flash of light as a tiny, spherical pokemon with two magnets attached to its sides appeared and spun around in the air. "This is Magnemite! Don't be fooled though, it may be small but it's really strong!"
"What about you?" Ashley shifted the focus of the conversation back to Ramiza as Magnemite floated mildly at her side. "I guess your family is reallly into pokemon, huh? Who did you pick as a starter?!"
Ramiza nodded and widened her eyes even more with excitement
She went to the big leagues in Kanto huh!? Omg...this girl must be totes good...
Suddenly Ashley presented her Pokemon, something so unknown and foreign to her
"Ahhh! Oh my, it's so...unique! And yet such an adorable little fella!" as she hesitantly petted the small magnetic creature.
When the black chica asked about the Indian girl herself, she cleared her throat and said
"Yeah, they are, a little bit too much...." with sadness in her voice "...Also!" shifting the subject "Yes I do! I picked Snivy as my grass starter...well I didn't pick her but uhhh...it's a long story!" giving a bit of an awkward shrug.
Suddenly an assistant came over with Snivy in his hand, saying politely
"Your Snivy is all set" as he transferred the Snivy into the Indian gals arms.
"ohh Snivy! Are you alright dear?" She asked with worry in her voice
"Snivvvvvv!" As Snivy jumped out of her arms and onto the floor, raising its head and turning away from Ramiza
Ramiza turned embarrassingly toward Ashley and scratched the back of her head
"Uhm...yeah! Here's your first Unova Pokemon....Snivy! The grass-starter....who doesn't listen to me..." looking down with disappointment
Power over the bent
Magnemite responded playfully to Ramiza's touch, doing a quick spin and making a buzzing noise as the gal withdrew her arm. Moments later, a laboratory aide returned the younger girl's starter pokemon: Snivy. It was a slender green reptillian pokemon, with somewhat dimunitive limbs that gave it the appearance of a snake. As it hopped out of Ramiza's arms, Ashley noted the signature three-pronged leaf on its tail.
"Ohhh my goodness!" Ashley chirped gleefully, crouching down to Snivy's level as it stood indignantly. "Well aren't you just an amazing little thing? Sort of reminds me of my starter pokemon, haha..."
She stood back up and faced Ramiza as Magnemite dove down to Snivy's level to engage it in pokemon-style introductions.
"Just give it some time," Ashley instructed. "Starters come in two flavors: naive and sassy. The two of you will be as close as cheese and biscuits before you know it!"
Suddenly, Professor Juniper hurried back into the room. She politely announced her presence with a friendly wave before delving right back into the heat of conversation.
"Well, that professor Oak sure hasn't spared anything when it comes to that ChipDex! There's so much data and translation that I need to do...Ashley, I may not be able to return this to you for a little while! Hmm...Oh, I know!" She reached into her pocket and pulled out a blue, watch-like device. "This is a C-Gear with a X-Transceiver! I realize your cell phone is able to make calls, but I think you'll find that the C-Gear's applications far surpass simple dialogue!"
"Oh...well thank you! And uhm, please take your time with the ChipDex...thing. Ramiza and I will be fine with one PokeDex for now!" She attached the C-Gear to her wrist and looked at it rather fondly. She then recalled Magnemite back to its pokeball and looked at Ramiza. "Okay Miss Patel, your first order of business as my guide to Unova is to take me to the first place with a Gym! Ready to head out?"
Ramiza heard what Ashley said and smiled, if this experience trainer says that about Snivy, then the two will get along just fine.
"Alright!" Doing a fist pump "Let's go girl! My family happens to have familiarized me with the area very well...and it looks like the first gym we'll be going to is Striation!"
She pointed with her finger in eagerness "Come on Snivy! Let's go!"
"...Snivy!" Her heading being crowned upward as she began marching in front of the two gals
"Ehehe...see ya Professor! And thanks for everything!" Bowing politely before taking off after the pretentious grass starter
"Alright! First off...we gotta goto Striation!" Speaking to the black companion of hers while looking at the PokeEarth app on her high-tech PokeGear
"Best way to get there is by passing Accumula Town first! So first stop! Accumula Townnn!"
And so the gal pal companions began their jouney, each educating the other about something, Ashley droppin' some bea-I mean, trainer knowledge on Ramiza while Ramiza informed Ashley about a Unovan Pokemon they encountered through her handy dandy Dex. The two exchanged stories and more about each other as they broke the awkward ice that was thrust on them so suddenly and early! The trip down Route 1 was a brisk and short one, as the chattering brought them to the town of Accumula! A Bustling and growing town with hills and elevation of all sorts!
Power over the bent
"Excellent!" Ashley said with a smile as she and Ramiza said their farewells to Professor Juniper and started on their journey.
Upon leaving Nuvema Town, the seaside Route 1 lay before the travelers. Ashley had already tackled the short route on her way from Accumula Town, so a return trip wouldn't prove to be much of a problem. As it was getting late in the afternoon, there were no roaming trainers looking for battle, so stops were infrequent. Ashley took this time to fiddle with Ramiza's PokeDex, observing all of the pokemon she had seen since coming to Unova. Patrat, Lillipup, Pidove...there certainly were a lot of normal-types. Although Ashley was eager to start catching pokemon and forming a powerful team, she wanted to be sure that all of her captures were worthwhile.
Before long, the two adventurers came to Accumula Town. It was a lot busier during the evening hours, Ashley noted, as there were people rushing about the many streets heading home after a long day of work. She smiled as several kids tossed bread to a flock of hungry Pidoves, and seeing the activity caused her stomach to slightly rumble.
"Hmmm...How about we go check into the Accumula Pokemon Center? We can get some food and stay the night, set out early tomorrow. I don't think we can make it to Striaton in one night!" As Ashley made her case, she narrowly avoided bumping into someone in a uniform. As she turned to voice an apology, she noticeda strange logo on the man's shirt.
"Hmm...What is that? Solara Co.? I've seen that name almost everywhere since I arrived in Unova! I've never heard of it back home..."
