Tanya stopped just before the entrance to the city, quiet and quaint given the late hour of her arrival. She'd trekked from the plantation and not rested once, determined to make it before the sunrise. Excitement buzzed through her, green eyes glittering with joy as she took in one of her favourite cities in the entire region. There was so much history here, the city rich in all kinds of lore, and it possessed an air that made one feel as if they had stepped back in time. Moka was puzzled by Tanya's thoughtful look and why she'd paused, uttering a questioning screech that brought a smile to her trainer's face. "Sorry Moka. It's been so long since I was last here. I just wanted to make this moment special," she replied with a laugh. But she was tired after the Sudowoodo ordeal, and her Pokémon deserved a rest too.
Grateful to see the Pokémon Center so close, Tanya headed straight for it, making sure to heal her team before crashing for the night. Come morning, however, the clear weather had given way to a storm likely coming west from Olivine. Even dawdling for a while, switching her team around, gave enough time for the weather to lessen up, and so the redhead had gone out equipped for the conditions. Gray hoodie paired with her usual jeans and boots, and a spare umbrella in case the rain got too heavy, and Tanya was set to explore the route she'd hurried through the night before. While she enjoyed a good thunderstorm, it meant leaving her Pokémon safe in their respective balls unless they were needed for battle.
"Ease up Thundurus!" Tanya muttered as a loud peal of thunder ripped through the sky. Yeah, what had she been thinking? Staying at the Center would have spared her soaked clothes and sloshing through the muddy terrain. Balking at adventure wasn't something a trainer was prone to, so she just had to suck it up and endure. Besides, she'd been through much worse weather-wise and come out just fine. The only Pokémon on her team that would possibly enjoy the storm was Skymerald, an Electrike she'd recently acquired, but her temperament made Tanya nervous about calling her out just for company. Biting down a sigh, Tanya stopped in her wandering and looked around, hoping something would show up to make this day less miserable, be it a person or Pokémon.
((Looking for any kind of encounter ~))
