Night was Nyx's favorite time to be out and about. She had only begun traveling with a human trainer here lately so still wasn't entirely used to it. More to the point she wasn't used to being confined to a pokeball or the pc. Fortunately the pokemon center staff allowed the boxed pokemon out periodically to stretch their legs, or in her case wings.
Cherrygrove City was nothing like her old home in the forest. There were a lot more humans and they seemed to do the strangest things. She was sitting in a tree near the main street and watched as they came and went. Fortunately there were also pokemon around which made things a lot more entertaining. At least she would have someone to talk to.
"Do you understand why the humans do the things they do?" the normally quiet owl pokemon asked another who happened to be near by. "Take that one for example sneaking around in the alley. Why would they do such a thing?"
Turning her head around to look back over her shoulder she fixed the new comer with an odd stare and hoped it had an answer.
Ever since Kevin had obtained Glitch Bird it had been sitting in his PC waiting for a chance to prove itself but as Kevin was busy trying to train a number of his other Pokemon he knew the young Porygon would be waiting a while. That is when he got the idea of letting the Porygon go to Professor Elm's lab for a while to try and allow it some freedom until he could train it. The artificial Pokemon was not satisfied with just staying at the lab however and it used its Psybeam attack to know out the aide keeping an eye on it and broke out from the lab. After breaking free it floated towards the nearby city of Cherrygrove knowing it was far enough away to avoid anyone who might pursue it.
Shortly after arriving in the small town the young Porygon a voice from a nearby tree and it looked up out of curiosity seeing a Hoothoot there trying to have a conversation with it. Being an artificial Pokemon Glitch Bird knew just how odd the human race could be however as its programming had not focused on capturing human speech very well it spoke in an electronic fashion with a difficulty pronouncing words. " The humanz are a zery weird bunch. Zhere are so many reasonz a human might sneak in zhe alley. Most of zhem however are not very good." After trying to process the different reasons in its odd mind Glitch Bird was not sure if it had answered Nyx the way she had hoped but it hoped she would understand.
Glitch Bird could not help but to feel nervous as it waited for a response as it was not very used to speaking with other Pokemon instead of humans and it hoped its odd way of speaking would not scare Nyx off.
OOC: Sorry it took me so long to respond to this, the past few weeks have been crazy. I ended up going with Glitch Bird the Porygon to finally introduce it.
Nyx glanced towards the odd pokemon and ruffled her feathers a bit in thought. Now he was an odd one to. If it was a he. She wasn't real sure never having seen one like this before and it seemed rude to ask. Instead she pondered his words and continued to watch the human.
He was now climbing up the side of the building using a rope. She didn't like the looks of him. He seemed to be up to no good.
"I don't think he is very good," she observed. "He is too sneaky. And why climb up to a window when their is a perfectly good front door?"
She ruffled her feathers a bit and continued to observe.
"Shall we watch him to make sure he doesn't get into trouble?"
Glitch Bird was still not entirely sure how well its conversation with Nyx had gone but just like her it could not hel but to be drawn to the human climbing the side of the building. Though the man might be a maintenance worker of some kind there was also a good chance of him being a thief as well and as such Glitch Bird agreed that watching the man was a good idea. " Zhat soundz like a good idea, he might just be going to fix somezhing or he could be a thief but for now letz keep an eye on him and see what he does next." As the young Porygon watched the man its interest in the weird behaviors humans displayed only continued to grow as it was curious to learn more about the species that created it.
" I find humanz quite intriguing as they were responsible for my creation, zhey really are an intriguing species once you get past zheir odd habits. This man should be a great zest subject to learn more about zhem." Glitch Bird mumbled as it hoped to learn as much as it could about its creators.
"Humans created you?" she asked, obviously surprised and turning her head around backwards in the way owls do to regard her new friend. "How is that possible?"
Nyx had never heard of such a thing but she supposed it was possible. After all, till recently all she had known was her little section of forest and the bug pokemon she had hunted. Where humans were concerned anything seemed possible. She was distracted from this line of thought though by the human they were watching.
He had climbed up so far and reached a window but was now struggling with it and cursing quietly to himself. It was quiet to humans but not so much to the sensitive ears of pokemon. It seemed clear that he didn't belong in the building he was trying so hard to gain access to.
Realizing that his revelation had caught Nyx off guard as few would believe its artificial nature but he was glad she did not immediately think it was crazy or lying. " Yez, zhey created my speciez az a test of zheir intelligence but az my voice suggests zhere was some glitchez in zhe procezz. Modern computerz are quite amazing in their creative abilitiez and zhrough one of zheir programz my speciez was created." Losing its own attention on the human in the process of explaining its creation Glitch Bird was only brought back into focus as Nyx pointed out the humans latest attempts.
" Zhis behavior suggests zis human doez not belong here at all. I agree we should follow zhem and see what zhey are up to." Glitch Bird then tried to think of how to best follow the human without drawing attention to itself as it was a pretty rare species and a human with ill intentions would not waste any time trying to go after it.
Nyx wasn't sure what to make of the story about humans creating pokemon. It was foreign to her understanding. Her new friend was odd but clearly existed so she decided that the oddness of his origin was not so very important. Especially with something far more interesting happening right in front of them; something that was much easier for Nyx to wrap her mind around.
"He doesn't see us yet," she observed thoughtfully. "Once he is inside the window he will be occupied with whatever is inside. We should then be able to sneak over and follow without too much fuss."
She wasn't sure how stealthy her new friend was but her own species was known to be very quiet in flight. It didn't seem as if they would have too much trouble so long as they were careful.
(Ooc: Sorry for the delay. I do not seem to have all my ducks in a row. o.O )
Glitch Bird had a feeling that it's tale of creation had been a pretty big pill to swallow and so it did not try and elaborate further to confuse the Hoothoot any further. As Nyx pointed out the man not seeing them yet and a possible way to follow him without being seen Glitch Bird nodded before letting Nyx take the lead. As a Porygon Glitch Bird may have looked quite silly but it's ability to levitate silently and quickly meant that it could keep up with any move Nxy made though it was far larger so staying hidden in an open area would be a far harder thing to accomplish.
" Whenever Zhe coazt is clear I can follow you. So long az I can stay out of za open I can be pretty quiet. If we get caught in zhe open however I will not be able to hide. I have a kamouflage zetting but it iz not tested and I cannot guarantee it will work." It said as it waited for Nyx to make her move.
OOC: So sorry it took so long to reply. I totally know how messed up the ducks of life can get.
The suspense! What was that man after I wonder? I guess we'll never know, but this definitely had some great potential. Despite how brief a glimpse I had into the situation I could tell that Glitch Bird and Nyx were going to be quite the team. They were already considering how to work together to slip inside unnoticed and deriving plans without leaving the other behind. Kudos! I'd say that's worth...

Without some more story it's hard to tell how interesting a tale it would be so I can't award any creative stars. That's all for now, cheerio!
Nyx grew to LV 9! She can learn Confusion; forget an old move?
