Yui smiled and nodded, looking at her newly acquired Poochyena. Octavia initially wasn't going to fight, but she was still hyped up from the fight earlier so she was ready to attack the first thing she could. "Look...this has been a really bad day. So I am going to enjoy this." she growled at the rattata, clearly more confrontational than the little nickit earlier was. She was pushed back by the quick attack, but held her ground and wasn't knocked down. She took the two quick his, growling as she glared at the purple rat pokemon. She was ready for a fight.
Hearing the boy's question, Yui turned to him and nodded her head. "Yah, we had a rough run in earlier, but I actually caught her right before you showed up. So we are still working on our relationship." Yui said with a nervous laugh. Almost on cue Octavia turned towards her and growling, Yui couldn't help but think that she might get bit if she tried to pet her now. They definitely had some....issues to work out. Well, now wasn't the time so Yui could only hope that the poochyena would put winning over being defiant. Turning back towards the rattata, Octavia charged at it. She was bigger and used that to her advantage to throw all of her weight into the quick attack. "I. Iam. Damn. PISSED!" she shouted as she rammed into ratpat, knocking it out.
Yui heaved a sigh of relief, walking up to her poochyena. "Good job Via." she said, almost reaching to pet her but stopped as the pokemon growled at her. Yup, she would get bit if she continued. "You did good Via. I will get you and Moxie a nice meal in town okay?" she said, calling the pokemon back to her ball. Well, she couldn't expect an instant bond. She knew it would take work to get through to Octavia, but she was still going to try. She turned her attention to the boy, walking over to him and his pokemon and kneeling down. "Hey, it's okay. He'll be okay. Pokemon are tough, tougher than us. That's why they are drawn to fighting. Plus, the pokemon center will fix him up good as new." she said. Before she could say much else, she had the money shoved into her hands as he ran off. She stood there for a moment confused before it clicked. "Oh. Right! I forgot...the battles have prize money." she said, looking down at the pokedollars in her hand. "Well then, I will have to take extra care not to loose." she said before putting it away in her bag. She couldn't help but feel a bit bad taking money from a kid though. Well, that wasn't really her problem.
Looking in the distance, she could see some rooves. Was that Cherrygrove? She had to squint, the sun was just the tiniest of sliver in the distance. "Maybe if I run I can find somewhere to sleep tonight, time to book it!" and with that she ran off towards Cherrygrove.

The mist on route 29 made it even darker than it usually was even with the sun still just above the horizon. For most Pokemon that would be annoying however for one particular Pokemon it was no worry at all. The large eyes it had made it very easy to see through even the thickest of fog so a mist was no trouble at all. The large eyed Pokemon hopped along the route looking for either some berries to snack on or for a trainer to battle. Either would be better than standing around doing nothing. No berry trees or plants seemed to be around however the sound of someone running nearby was too hard to pass up.
Hoothoot bounced up and down as it found a good bush to hide in as it waited for the running sound to get closer. The owl was smart enough not to just jump out without being sure it was within striking range before trying it's luck. Once Yui was close enough to the bush Hoothoot jumped out ready for a battle hoping that the small window of time she had to react would not be enough for her to defend herself from it's attack. It did not see the small stone near the buah it was hiding in however and it slipped. The mist had moistened the rock just enough to make the rock slippery. Hoothoot was not hurt from.the trip physically but it's pride was damaged from.the fall.
With more than enough time for Yui to react all Hoothoot could do was hope that it's careless mistake did not cost it dearly as the battle was about to begin.
Hoothoot (Level 8) appeared. Please select a Pokemon.

So close! She was so close! She was certain that Cherry Grove was just ahead! She was rushing along the path to try and beat the night, but the mist was making it hard to see. She rubbed her eyes, it was getting to be more and more difficult as the time went on. "Dammit..where is..." she reached in her bag, shuffling around for her flashlight. She pulled it out, banging it a few times to get it to turn on. She had to remember to get batteries when she made it to town, these ones were nearly dead.
Suddenly something jumped out at her as Yui shrieked, throwing out the first pokemon she found. Out came Octavia the poochyena, shaking her head as she tried to grasp the situation. She looked up, seeing the hoothoot as she growled at it. She wasted no time in charging at it without being being told to go in for a tackle. It took a moment for Yui to realize she sent out Octavia...she meant to send out Eimi, oops! Well she was already out so they might as well work with this for now.
Hoothoot may not have started things out on the right foot however no single setback was going to stop the owl from trying to win a battle and prove it's strength. The thick mist covering the area was the perfect condition for Hoothoot to try out one of it's special moves as it watched Yui send out the wrong Pokemon. Poochyena were not common to the area however Hoothoot had no fear as it opened it's beak and unleashed a loud echoed voice aimed right at Octavia's ears. The poor Poochyena winced in pain as the loud noise not only was painful but also caused a ringing sensation in her ears. Octavia was not going to let a loud noise stop her however as she grit her teeth and bared through the pain as she ran towards Hoothoot.
The young canine was able to score a direct hit with tackle though she was not able to match the level of damage Hoothoot was able to. The owl looked over at it's foe and had little doubt that it had the upper hand at the moment. Echoed voice was quite a useful move for such a young Pokemon to know and Hoothoot had already prepared it's lungs for another round. Despite this the owl did not dare start to celebrate yet as it had seen far too many wild Pokemon lose a battle from getting to confident. One wrong move might allow Octavia a chance to close the gap and Hoothoot certainly did not want that to happen.

Octavia glared at the hoothoot, she was ready to fight! Her lips raised as she exposed her teeth, growling at the spherical owl pokemon. "How dare you think you can fight me!?" she taunted, the hair on her spine standing on end as she gave an aggressive stance in response to the other pokemon. As it shouted at her she winced, her ears folding flat at the loud sound. That hurt! "Okay Octavia! Counter with a howl!" said Yui, but she was completely ignored by the angry poochyena who decided to use tackle instead!
"Via!" said Yui, why wasn't she listening? She didn't understand, from what she knew pokemon typically listened when they were caught at low levels, why wasn't Octavia listening? Yui sighed, she had to get this under control. "Come on Via...we're a team. We need to work together!" said Yui to the the little gray pokemon. Octavia turned back to glance at Yui, huffing then turning back to the enemy hoothoot. She clearly didn't have any respect for Yui yet. The young girl was still determined to try and earn her trust. For now, she couldn't force her. After the battle she would try to help work on that bond.
The owl had wished for a battle, for something interesting to happen, and it seemed like it had just gotten that. While it had prepared for one move it was still a bit unskilled and not that tactical, yet, it quickly changed its mind when Octavia taunted it and it tilted a bit to the left before swinging back right. "That's what I'm doing, right?" It asked amused and jumped to its other foot, although that wasn't visible to the naked eye, it just looked like it leaned to the left. "If you don't want to, you can step aside and let me get to your human as was my plan," it added casually and smiled to Octavia, it was not her it had any problem with. Why it wanted to attack a trainer was still shrouded in mist, as the one which covered the area.
For now the battle was still between Octavia and the owl, and while it hadn't done that much to it it preferred to be on the safe side. It growled threateningly at her, trying to make it clear it promised her hell if she continued. The mist somehow contorted the growling and while Octavia could hear it, it didn't make any sense to her, and certainly didn't sounded like a threat. The hoothoot looking genuinely plussled when the poochyena disregarded its warning all together and leaped into it and sent it staggering back. It glanced at Yui when the human spoke and looked surprised as Octavia glared at her trainer "Why are you with her when you don't like her?" It asked confused and then its expression lightened up as an idea struck it, "why not help me instead?! We can both go at her! Together!" It offered eagerly.

Octavia growled at the Hoothoot, circling it as she eyed her prey. She never did get to eat that nickit Moxie earlier...so she was still rather hungry. "Try all you want little pokemon. All I see right now is a potential meal." she said as she licked her maw. She listened as it mentioned attacking the human as she turned to look at Yui for a moment, then back to the hoothoot. "So what?" the poochyena questioned. Yui looked between the pokemon, sighing as she hoped Octavia would listen, but it seemed the poochyena was keen to ignore her at the moment. While it was frustrating, Yui knew she couldn't force the issue right now.
Octavia grinned when she collided with the owl pokemon with her tackle, she was more of an offensive pokemon than defensive. She preferred to just go in for the kill. As it questioned her actions, offering up the deal the scruffy gray pokemon tilted her head. "Eeeh? Why would I take any offer made by prey." she growled as she lowered her body, ready for a pounce. "I don't care about the human, that's true. But i'm far more interested in a meal then messing with some human. I can't eat her. But I can eat you." she said with a toothy grin as she rushed at the hoothoot with another tackle. "I would never partner with some stupid bird!" she snarled back before she lunged at the other pokemon.
"Prey? Why would you want to eat me? Is your human that skimpy on food that you would prefer a live meal? This is another reason why we should eliminate your trainer or at least her ownership over you. I won't go down quietly if you refuse to join forces with me."
To hopefully make it's point, the hoothoot does another echo screen after giving the voice a slight cool down with the growl. After the echo voice hits, the response is continual attack in physical and words. The tackle hits hard and the attitude continues to show. Some Pokemon wants to be caught but this one seems to want to control its own destiny instead of listening to the trainer so why won't the poochy turn on the trainer?
"Those balls are nothing but a leash on us Pokemon. We can be strong without it literally containing us."

Octavia grinned, huffing at the hoothoot. "I wouldn't know. She just caught me. But i'm willing to give her a try. More reliable than the likes of you. She could fend me off at least so that says something." she said with a toothy grin. "I am not naive enough to fall for the mind games of some bird." she added, standing confidently as she smirked at the other pokemon.
When the other pokemon issued another echoed voice, Octavia pinned her ears back and snarled. She was getting eally sick of this. Yui watched at Octavia collided with the hoothoot in another tackle as she pulled a pokeball from her belt. "Hopefully this is enough, pokeball go!" she toss the ball at the opposing pokemon, hoping to capture it. Octavia turned to Yui as she threw the ball with a confused look. Why did the human want a pokemon like that? It looked like nothing better than a meal to her. "I'll never understand these....humans...." she growled as she waited to see what would happen.
Yui watched with baited breath, hoping that the hoothoot would stay caught without any issues.

This was tiresome, both mentally and physically. It was beyond the Hoothoot why Octavia kept defending the human when she kept saying she didn't care about it and didn't want to battle. She even called its good suggestions for mind games, but the bird had just tried to argue its point. "Aren't we all playing mind games? Trying to figure out why the others say and do as they do?" It asked but didn't wait for an answer before it shrugged at continued, "but if you rather want to believe the mind games of your human and let her restrict you with those prison devices of hers, then be my guest." It ruffled its feathers and flapped its tiny wings to become airborne, "you keep talking about wanting to eat me, but you are all bark and no bite. I guess that is an idea your human has put into your head as well."
In the air it turned away from Octavia and locked its eyes on Yui instead. "You don't want my offer I have no use for you, now excuse me, I have a score to even with this human," it said plainly and flapped past the poochyena and towards Yui, wanting to try execute its initial plan of attacking the human straight on. It could have ended badly with a lot of scratches if Yui hadn't thrown the pokeball, which the hoothoot for some weird reason didn't try to dodge it. Its expression would be hard to read but there might be a bit of a smirk? The ball hit it right on and sucked it in, it fell to the ground and wiggled one time before if confirmed the capture with a Ding. It hadn't put up much struggle, if any at all, had it been that exhausted for such short fight?
Congratulations! You caught the Hoothoot for some reason!

(ooc: well, well, well, if you are going to keep the rather weird personality of this owl, its going to be interesting! XD I have tried opening its still unknown agenda up a bit in the end, for you to work on, if you want.)
Octavia may not be...overly friendly with her trainer and is begrudgingly her pokemon, but she certainly has no plans to team up with a hoothoot. She has eaten hoothoots...she doesn't befriend them or much less trust them. She held her head high, in her mind she was far better than some hoothoot.
"Believe whatever you want bird...but I don't take orders from this human, or you! But if I have to choose one or the other, that human has shown to be more reliable than the likes of you. So I would rather take my chances with her." she growled back at the other pokemon. "We will see who has no bite..." she snarled back at the other pokemon, showing her fangs in an aggressive manner.
Yui has seen the hoothoot charging her, and Octavia didn't seem to be in a rush to get in the way. No matter, Yui had been prepared, and she sure was glad she threw the ball when she did! With the rate the pokemon was coming at her, she wasn't sure if she could aim well enough, but was pleased when she didn't miss the throw. "Oh! I hope I didn't hit it too hard..." she said as she watched the ball fall to the ground, lightly up and shaking briefly before stopping. "Oh..yay! I caught hoothoot!" Yui said excitedly as she reached down to pick up the ball. "I am sorry little one..I guess you might not like me much either..I hope it gets better. Honestly I thought the ball would shake more." she said, turning to Octavia who's ears were back with an annoyed expression. She had wanted to eat it. "You did great Via, now get some rest. I will get all of you a good meal once we are in town." she said, recalling the poochyena as she smiled at the ball. She knew she had a lot more work to do with this one, but she felt confident she could earn the scruffy little pokemon's trust.
With a sigh and a stretch, she continued to get ever closer to Cherrygrove. If she sped up her space she still hoped she could get there before it was too late to find a place to sleep.

That had to be Cherrygrove on the blushing horizon— or- maybe it was that way?
By now, the mist wreathing Route 29 joined with drizzle that kicked up into its own clouds of the stuff for an almost congealing effect. It wasn't to the extent of fog but it was enough to blanch the surrounding scenery. At this point, it was hard to tell one tall tree apart from another.
Luckily, Route 29 got less complicated the more you walked. There was a "top half" and a "bottom half" but eventually they merged together and it was a straight shot into Cherrygrove City. The issue, in this weather, was telling the road from the tall grass.
Yui's attention might have been called to an orb of warm light, a veritable beacon promising shelter and cherry blossoms. This would turn out to a lantern belonging to another trainer on close inspection. And closing in further, the sounds of vocal havoc.
"I'm dead. I'm so- so dead. They'll find my body half-frozen on 46 with bites taken out of it."
A teenage girl, maybe a year ahead of Yui, with dark hair stringy and unkempt, noticeably and dreadfully over-prepared. The girl had on at least four layers of winter wear with heavy-duty hiking boots. Along with her lantern, she had what looked like a walkie talkie strapped to her right hip; a bandana fitted into a face mask down off her chin; and a backpack taller than she with everything from a Repel can to a pot and a pan leashed to the outside of it: no saying what was inside. She seemed to be talking out loud to herself while pacing back and forth, wringing her gloved hands together. "I can't even make it past the first route- Knew I'd be bad at this-"
And as she paced, a shadow, just visible, moved back and forth in time.
Instantaneously, she whipped towards the new company and let out a cry like a balloon leaking helium. A short, black rod—maybe mace—was in her hand and pointed at Yui before the other trainer could resist. Fortunately, she got her nerves together.
"You scared the jeepers outta me! Gosh, I thought I was the only one crazy enough to travel in this weather. Whatever..."
A grudging look crossed the girl's expression. She adjusted her glasses.
"Hey, I've been out here for way too long, so humor me: have you seen a rare Pokemon? This route's been a bust so far outside for a Poochyena swarm... if you know what those are. But-"
As the girl explained, a figure emerged from the mist some half-steps behind her and joined in.
"It's, like, yay high..." The girl measured out a rough three inches with her hands. The figure did the same.
"It has red spots..." The girl formed goggles with her hands, cupping them over her eyes. The figure did the same.
"And floppy ears..." The girl held her arms over her head in the manner of a Sentret or a hare. The figure did the same— though it already had ears there.

Yui was sure she was almost there...right? This was her first time just...walking between towns like this...and certainly her first time so far away from Goldenrod. She only ever followed her parents on deliveries from time to time, but it was typically just a straight shoot in a carriage, so roughing it on foot through pokemon infested areas was...different to say the least. The ever shrinking light and mist didn't help the matter any, but at least the frost wasn't as bad as it had been when she started.
While walking through the fog Yui saw a light in the distance as she moved towards it. Was that a street lamp!? It was kind of short but, maybe these smaller towns did that sort of thing? As she got closer, she frowned as she saw it was not a streetlight to guide her to Cherrygrove...no...it was someone else. Hearing some sounds that she could only presume to be the other teen, Yui gave her a moment to have her panic then smiled and waved.
"Hi there! Are you a new trainer to? I'm Yui. I don't suppose you know if this is the right direction to Cherrygrove do you? I thought i'd be there by now but there have been...distractions.." she said with a sigh. Yui took a moment to observe the other girl, she couldn't be too far in age from Yui, though they couldn't be more different in their attire. Yui clearly hadn't prepared well for the cold in her shorts, though the boots at least kept her feet dry and her blazer was better than not having a coat at all.
While Yui was eyeing the girl, her attention was drawn to movement as she squinted some. What was that? She shook it off and smiled at the other girl as she spoke. "Yah well...it wasn't this cold when I left home...but it sure did hit when I got to New Bark. I probably should have changed before I went out but I was sure i'd beat the night. I guess I over estimated myself."
Yui listened to her explanation of the rare pokemon...rare pokemon eh? Yui listened to the girl going over the features of the pokemon, all the while the movement form before had a figure appear. Yui placed hand over her mouth to stifle a chuckle as the pokemon began to mimic the other girl's movements. "Hmm...yes it sounds very interesting...I think I might have seen one!" she said, winking at the pokemon. "I believe I saw it....riiiiight...there!" she said, pointing at the spinda. "Well aren't you just a little cutie!" Yui said, crouching down and smiling at the pokemon.

The nerd sighed and her shoulder's slumbed, "yeah, I'm a noob at this, even though I have read so much and did all I could to prepare," she said gloomily, "this is so much harder than they say in the books!" "I'm Grace by the way," she added as an afterthought and waved vague in one direction with a hand, "Cherrygrove should be in that direction, just around the corner really." As Yui began to eye her, she too looked the other trainer over thoughtfully, she completely missed that Yui got a bit distracted and looked away. "You certainly don't look well prepared? You didn't read the weather report before going? Do you know how easily you could get sick and in how much trouble that could bring you, if you are out here? Chances of dying is pretty high you know," she said as a matter of fact, "6,14 in general, 15,2 if it is foggy and all the way to 16,5 if you are lost," she said grimly.
Another thought and then Grace took the chance and mentioned the pokemon she was hunting, gesturing as she explained. She had been looking for it for quite some time, but all the books also had said that it was rare. She had expected that she with all her knowledge would have been able to find it pretty quickly anyway but things certainly didn't follow her plans very well. Her eyebrows rose in hope as Yui said she thought she had seen one but it dropped into a scowl and she glared at Yui when the other trainer pointed behind her and 'pretended' to talk to something behind her. "Very funny! Ha ha," she said dryly, "I know I might look funny but no need to make fun of me, you hardly know me," she grumbled although she did look hurt. Perhaps this was not the first time someone had tried to make fun of her?
"Spinda!" the bear pokemon greeted Yui with a grin which made Grace spin around and stare with open mouth. "It's..! That's..! Spinda!" The nerd girl croaked as she pointed at it, the bear slapped its hands on its cheeks and looked theatrically shocked at the revelation! Grace frantically fumbled with her jacket which had plenty of pockets but was hard to get to due to straps and things tied on, she managed while the spinda had made a great deal of yawning and tapping its foot while it waited. Finally the girl pulled out a pokeball and released its content, the spinda's bored look snapped to a full attention as a charmander popped out. "Archimedes, do an all rounder and divide it with 4, then slide to the left and curve the x'es, that will make Y a 87%!" Grace said confidently which her charmander clearly didn't share. It tried to do something and shot some embers at the spinda, which is somehow managed to catch and throw back a the fire type. Archimedes stumbled back surprised and was caught off guard as the spinda rammed it with a tackle and sent it down for the count.
"Noo!" Grace whined and fell to her knees, all her stuff clanging and banging against each other, but nothing fell off. "Why doesn't it ever work!" She added devastated and after a recalling her charmander she hid her face in her hands. Spinda looked at her puzzled and then turned to look expectantly at Yui, and it mimicked whatever stance she had at the moment.
Grace and her charmander has failed in battling, and she is devastated!
Yui smiled and nodded. "Yui! Yui Maki! And eventually I will become a great pokemon breeder and co-ordinator!" she said, striking a triumphant pose. "I grew up around pokemon, my parents own a ranch and breed pokemon. It's not the most well known ranch, but they are happy." she said, smiling at the thought.It made her feel happy thinking of home. She would miss it, but wasn't going to go back on starting her pokemon journey! At the mention of watching the weather report, Yui scratched the back of her head with a nervous smile. "Weeell....the weather was so nice when I left Goldenrod. I figured, it's great! I didn't think to look ahead to see how it was in New Bark Town. I didn't think there was that big of a difference....guess that's what I get!" she lowered her arm, still smiling. "Well I am simply too stubborn to die. Besides. I did a lot of sports back home in all sorts of weather. I am pretty durable. I am not even cold at all!" she said...the goosebumps on her legs said otherwise.
Yui didn't understand the girl's reaction...she could just...turn around? Yui had a confused look as she was scolded, raising an eyebrow. "But...it really is...just right there...." she said, still pointing as she looked awfully confused. "I am not making fun of you, honest! If you just turn around it's right there!" no sooner had Yui said that, did the little pokemon respond with a 'Spinda!' as she smiled and waved at the pokemon as the girl finally turned around. "See? I never lie!" Yui said with a grin. She watched the girl panic as she checked pocket after pocket, only to produce a pokeball. Oh, that made sense.
Yui curiously watched the battle, smiling as she pulled out a pokeball. "Come on out Moxie, you can watch with me!" she said, summoning the little fluffy nickit from it's pokeball. "Niiickiit!" he said with a yawn and a stretch as Yui reached down and picked him up. "Now watch closely, you still have a lot to learn okay Moxie?' she said to the little pokemon, who curiously looked at the battling charmander. Yui seemed a bit confused as the battle went on...what was she telling it to do? "Or...maybe this is a bad lesson..." she mumbled, but Moxie could hear as he giggled.
As the charmander's attack failed, she watched the girl freak out as Yui gave a gentle smile and walked forward. "Hey..it's okay. You just need to let loose a bit. Instead of over thinking things try to feel out what the pokemon wants. Sometimes they will disagree....like Octavia....but if you over complicate things you will only confuse your pokemon." she said, putting Moxie down. "Just watch." she nodded as Moxie nodded back and walked over to the spinda. "Nickit nick nickit!(I am going to fight you and win!)" he stated proudly. "Alright Moxie! Use tackle!" she said as the little orange fox pokemon rushed at the spinda with a tackle. Yui felt that Moxie could handle this battle..no, she KNEW he could! "You got this Moxie!"
