A human drowning and a wild water Pokemon comes and save them? Maybe Floatzel, Milotic, and or Primarina please.

Let’s imagine Mr. “I can totally swim” fell off a boat, shall we?

-Floatzel wasn’t paying much attention, just messing around in the ocean, when it heard the human’s cry. Having never heard a human before, it went up to see just what was going on. Seeing the poor human flailing in the water, Floatzel went up to it, letting the human ride on its back on its way back to shore. Unfortunately, Floatzel likes moving fast, so the human arrived back at the beach certain that he’d swallowed gallons of ocean water.

-Milotic are known for being caring creatures of the sea. When a Milotic spotted a drowning human, his crying led the Pokemon to discover it. Knowing that the human was in peril, Milotic wrapped itself around him, keeping him buoyant until rescue arrived. Coast Guard found the man wrapped carefully around a Milotic who was humming to keep it calm.

-When a wild Primarina discovered a drowning human, it came up out of the water to see it. Using its calming song, the Pokemon calmed the human’s nerves, before scooping it up in its arms. Then, using its Oceanic music, Primarina helped the human almost surf back to shore, letting the waters move them faster towards safety.

“Listen sweetie, do your Grunkle a favor and don’t tell yer Uncle Ford about this little business i’m running. I don’t want him to worry or nothing….”


So all this Sea Hobo AU excitement was happening this afternoon, and it got me thinking and then this happened. Stan is still a con man, through and through.

Coast Guard Rescue Man Trapped on Cliffside

A man was rescued from a cliff ledge in Pembrokeshire’s Newgale Beach, in southwest Wales, on July 13.

The rescue was carried out by a local coast guard search and rescue helicopter originally responding to a distress call from three men who were cut off by the Newgale Beach tide. Two of the men were rescued by a coast guard lifeboat while the third, who had climbed the cliff to escape the rising tide, was saved by helicopter.
