I know I asked for it, but it’s weird having someone watch over me all the time. Not that I mind having a huge bird being my guardian angel since my only protection is usually a walking cupcake.
So thanks, Paul. None of the slimy people in town are even taking a second look at me once they see your big bad bird glaring back down at them. I should have our supplies for the first leg of our trip and be back at your brother’s house within the hour.
I hear Celestic Town has a happening okonomiyaki scene…
Happy Birthday, serenaofvaniville! Sorry I didn’t exactly make it to the middle of nowhere today, but I promise I’ll have the best present for you yet when we meet up at the wedding on Saturday. Count on it! We’re in Veilstone! ;)
Every year they had been sending an invitation. Of course they did. Every single Gym-Leader, Professor, Researcher, Contest-Judges, -Announcers, -Regional-Champion-Coordinators and whoever had a big business working with Pokémon was getting one. After all there was a reason why it was called Pokémon-Human-Symbiosis-Convention…
Each year the organisation and committee invited coryphaei in different fields related to Pokémon to give speeches, lectures, present their findings and news to the world… Welcoming everyone who was interested in recent discoveries and basically everything about Pokémon, to Veilstone City for those four days of experiencing engagement in entertainment and education.
And every year he chucked the invitation right into the paper-bin.
He didn’t have much to say to people. Most already had their opinion about his Gym-type. He realised that in his very first year as a Gym-leader. The first and last year he went there. Sat in his booth, doing barely anything more than drinking tea and warming his chair. Occasionally being interrupted by immature people making jokes about small, adorable Pokémon and other people swooning about their cuteness… He had two people inquire about the position of being a Gym-Trainer under his guidance. Only one later actually showed up in Doolin City… Otherwise it had been boring, loud and a waste of time and expenses. So he never went there again.
But this year was different. Fairy Pokemon had finally been approved as an independent type. Not that he didn’t know they were different all along… there was a reason they got along so well… and a reason so different types all loved to huddle around the monolith and passage tomb. They had to have something in common and he knew it… And people had been making fun of him and his mismatched patchwork team… Well not this year! This year he had been invited especially. This year they had asked him to give a presentation and speech. And his booth would be visited by far more people, by Pokémon Professors and Trainers alike… After all, he had been working with Fairy Pokémon for years…And he was looking forward to perhaps meeting Valerie from Laverre City. A fellow Fairy-Gym-Leader.
So he had instructed his Gym-trainers, had given them the week off, with a little pocket money and locked the doors of the Gym. He had made sure the entrance to the tomb was safely locked and left and stored Klefki in the PC. And then, he had headed for Veilstone City.
Maybe another reason why he was partaking in the Convention this year was, that as an official contributor, he had been given a hotel room for free, complete with room service. So that was clearly an incentive as well…
Having arrived without delay or complications, the first thing he did was abusing the room service. He really didn’t feel like going out for dinner. So a snack on the big comfy bed and a last few edits to his speech was a good thing to get himself into the Con-mood.
Hi my name is Roark the Rock and I love rocks (that’s how I got my name) I have vibrant Cordovan hair that reaches my shoulders and Cordovan eyes like limpid rocks and a lot of people tell me I look like Silver (AN: if u don’t know who he is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to Steven Stone but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I hang out in the underground but my clothing is free of dust. I have pale white skin. I’m also a pokemon trainer, and I work in the Oreburgh City Gym in Sinnoh where I’m the best Gym Leader (I’m In my early Twenties). I’m also a miner (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly safety gear. I love the Veilstone Department store and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a grey coat with matching pants with matching visibility tape around it and a red safety helmet, white gloves and black working boots. I was wearing no lipstick, no foundation, no eyeliner and no eye shadow. I was walking around Veilstone. There were rocks everywhere, which I was very happy about. A lot of galactic grunts stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.
Episode 11 of Pokémon: Generations is a new take on the fate of Cyrus, the boss of Team Galactic and major antagonist of Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. Cyrus’ ambition, to quickly recap for people who either never played those games or don’t remember them very well, was to outshine every other Pokémon villain who ever had been or ever will be, by unmaking reality itself and becoming a god in order to create a new universe that would be free from the weakness and imperfection of the soul. Let’s see how that turns out for him.
Kicking a rock to the side, Maylene took a seat on the nearest bench, Lucian taking a seat beside her. She set her elbows on her knees and let out a deep sigh. She hated being so far away from her gym for so long. There was no need for her to be in Unova. There was a boxing trainer right in Veilstone! Sure, she was really here for work, but she really didn’t want to go. Conferences were boring! Not to mention there were going to be a bunch of other gym leaders there she had never met. What if they found out how weak she was? There was no way they were ever going to let her keep her gym!
Jumping up she scratched her head frantically, as if trying to scratch the thoughts out of her head. There was no way she was going to let them get to her. “I’m going to show them alright! I’m going to show them that I am worthy of being a gym leader! Isn’t that right Luc–” Her face turned nearly as pink as her hair as she turned to face her pokemon, only to find a girl wearing some sort of weird shirt.
