Bishop frowned as he looked up to the sky. He was not built for summer weather. In fact he rather appreciated the fall season more and even then preferred to be out and about in the evenings. His pale, Kalos skin had never quite adapted to this regions summers. Putting on some sun screen and putting his sunglasses in place he turned his attention instead to the two pokemon by his side.
He was very fortunate in that his mother had gifted him with a pikachu she had bred just for the occasion of his journey. Between Blossom, who was a rather odd little dirt loving pikachu and Ember, the charmander the Professor had given him Bishop knew that he had the starts of a pretty formidable little party here. For his two new companions the young man had only smiles. He felt they would all be rather close and expected great things from both the pokemon and himself.
"That's enough for now guys. You've practiced for a couple of hours now. You can take a break."
For the last few days, since his parents returned to Kalos, they had been camping at the outskirts of town. The days had been spent exercising, practicing their aim with various attacks and dodging. Bishop too had exercised along with his pokemon. He wanted them to understand that they were all in this together and the group of them would have to work together to make his dreams for them come true.
Digging in his back pack he pulled out some food for them and fed his new partners. He too took out some dinner and settled beside them to eat. Occasionally his eyes would scan the horizon and the road that led to the next city. For a long time they all rested and gathered their strength. Finally it seemed as good a time as any to get started.
"Ladies, I think it's as good a time as any to get on the road. The sun is almost down so it wont be as hot. We can walk a fair distance and find some wild pokemon to challenge. What do you say?"
With that he broke camp and led his friends towards the tall grass to see what they could find.
