After recharging with food, Alex found himself in another part of the forest where the atmosphere was even darker, but minus the foggy appearance. The towering trees were just branching enough leaves to leave the ground dim. He was wondering if this area would be where the Farfetch'd was hiding. This looked kind of like a cave if you ignore the bushy and crunchy greenery that you could step on, or start a wildfire with. The trainer could kind of feel his Spinarak shifting on his head, as if she was talking with other Spinarak hiding in the forest. he could also feel some Zubats hanging around. If this wasn't the approximate description of cave, then he don't know what would be.
With this in mind, he kept on walking until he could see the trees transitioning again, but this probably won't be happening in a while, as he literally just stepped in here. Though he found this area unfriendly to him, as his vision was a bit dampened by the lack of light shining through. Although he could see shadow of trees obviously, it was the little sticks and branches of bushes sticking out that poked him or touched him occasionally. Once again, he looked around every few steps he took to find this Farfetch'd.
As Alex continued to make his way through the part of the secluded forest, a wild Spinarak who had spotted the wandering trainer had suddenly scuttled off into the foliage. Using it's webbing to try and subtly over take the trainer, the arachnid knew exactly why the human was here. Merging in with the trees, the Spinarak wriggled it's way down the tree branches, coming to a sheltered bush which held the Pokemon that Alex was looking for. Sitting within the leaves, the Farfetch'd looked over a number of injured bugs protectively, only perking up when this other Spinarak appeared. Understanding the bug's speak, the Farfetch'd learnt that a human was approaching and ultimately, putting the bugs at risk. Clicking it's beak in irritation, the avian had escaped from Sylvester in order to help it's forest friends. But nothing was ever that simple.
Escaping from the bush befor Alex grew too close, the Farfetch'd made a bit of a racket. Rustling bushes and squawking loudly, it tried to change the route the trainer was taking and when it was sure Alex was far enough away, it appeared. Jumping up onto a tree stump, the avian pushed it's chest out proudly. Eyes glinting down at the human, it was going to scare him away and then search the forest for healing herbs. With such a passionate goal in mind, there was no way it could lose.
The runaway Farfetch'd (Level 20) has been found! Battle taking place here.
Last Edit: Aug 11, 2015 4:16:25 GMT 11 by Morrigan
Fleeing from the Zubat, Catherine and her Pokemon ran across the darkness that was Gloomy Ravine and suddenly emerged in a much more clearer area. Trees laced with an ethereal glow, the magical feel of the area had caused Catherine to look around in awe, her running feet slowing down to a standstill. "Woah... This is... Pretty!" Her eyes exploring with immense curiosity, the girl ran her hand across the seemingly glowing ferns. Walking with a much slower pace to her steps, she was more interested with the delicate rays of light than any potential Pokemon around her. "I bet that Farfetch'd is around here." She stated affirmatively, "Any Pokemon would enjoy a calm area like this!" Her words true, both Atlas and Yumina also wore content smiles as they looked amongst the wilderness. As they paced on, a sudden sparkle capturing the attention of her Blissey and with a giant bound, ran off in it's direction.
Looking over her shoulder, Catherine had to rub her eyes at the sight of Yumina's legs wriggling about mid air, her Pokemon half trapped in the hole of a large tree trunk. "Yumina?!" She exclaimed in surprised, running over and grabbing hold of her Pokemon by the waist. "Hold on! We'll get you out! One and two and...!" Pulling multiple times, Catherine successfully heaved her Pokemon out of it's trap, bringing an obscure item with them. The duo landing on a heaped pile in the middle of the forest floor, followed by a mighty slam, Yumina wriggled herself off from on top of Catherine, giving the girl a chance to stand back up. "Whew. Just what were you doing, Yumina? Hmm?" Bouncing forward, the Blissey began to chirp successfully, her tapping feet running around an item which sat on the floor.
"What's this? A stone?" Kneeling down, Catherine lifted up the object and scrutinised it with her large eyes. It appeared to have a strange marking embedding into it and with a bit of memory digging, she used her second hand to click her fingers excitedly. "I know what this is, it's a Leaf Stone!" Holding it up into the air so that it could glisten against the glowing lights, a beaming grin stretched across her face, "We gotta be super lucky to find one of these!" Giggling to herself, she hadn't realised Atlas was looking at it with just as much interest. He knew what it was and what it could do for him, he felt it in his bones. Ever since he was back in Unova, he had been beneath his brother, Prometheus. But since travelling with Catherine and being a part of so much battling, his experience and confidence had grown greatly. Was this the icing on the cake? His chance to finally shine? Taking the plunge, Atlas stepped forward. There was nothing to lose. Gaining the attention of the ditzy Catherine, he began making chimping noises with his arms out stretched. "Huh, you wanna look? Alright! Catch!" Throwing the stone with a flick of her wrist, she was blissfully unaware of what she had just done, until the body of Atlas exploded with light.
Speechless, Catherine remained on her knees with her eyes wide, staring at the new form of Atlas before her. With a sneaky smirk, the now Simisage looked over his new form, arms outstretched and tail flicking. Glancing over to Catherine, his smirk changed to a beaming grin to which vanished as he felt his trainer suddenly hold onto him. Shifting forward, Catherine had wrapped her arms tightly around her Pokemon, becoming silent which was very unlike the chatty girl. "Atlas... I'm so glad you're okay!!" Pulling herself away, a slight tear was apparent in her glossy eyes. A mixture of feeling terrified that she had done something to her friend and happy upon realising he had evolved, the emotions had overwhelmed her. Lifting his hand, the Simisage gave the girl a gentle pat on the head but it didn't last for long. His ears twitching, he suddenly turned on the spot, sensing that something was close by.
OOC: Evolving Atlas and removing the Leaf Stone from Catherine's inventory.
When Atlas evolved as a result of the Leaf stone a certain Avian had been keeping watch for some time. It had been trying to lie low as it believed Catherine was looking for it and the last thing it wanted to do was go back to the idiot who had lost it in the first place. There were plenty of spots for Farfetch'd to hide in and keep it's eyes peeled for an opening so it could escape from the forest and be free for life. The only thing it had to do was make sure it was not spotted as it ran from cover to cover in it's desperate bid for freedom. As easy as the plan sounded things quickly turned foul for the bird.
As Farfetch'd took a singe step forward it's webbed foot landed on top of a Cascoon. The duck Pokemon honked out in discomfort before placing a wing over it's mouth hoping Catherine did not hear it. Just as it though it had gotten off however a sudden burst of wind sent Farfetch'd flying out into the open in plain sight. It's plans for freedom were surely in trouble as it looked Atlas in the eyes and gulped. With the plan to sneak by her up in smoke the avian had to come up with another plan and quick. Seeing no way to run past her Farfetch'd felt a battle coming up in it's gut and it did not like the odds.
Seeing the grass type monkey frightened the bird as it looked far stronger than the other Pokemon living in Ilex Forest. It was used to facing easy foes that had little chance against its leek however in this case it may take more than 1 swing to bring down such a strong looking Pokemon and Farfetch'd was not known for their ability to take hits very well. Willing to do anything to avoid going back to Sylvester however the bird held out it's leek and began to swing it around in an aggressive manner ready to fight for it's freedom if all else failed.
Sylvester's Farfetch'd level 20 refuses to come quietly. Your battle will take place here.
Wincing her eyes ever so slightly as the second ice beam went crackling through the air, Catherine slowly looked up with an expression full of curiosity to see if the Farfetch'd was still standing. The duo had certainly proved to be a pair of mischievous yet worthy opponents, leading Catherine to understand just how difficult they are to look after for the amateur apprentice kilnsman, Sylvester. "C'mon little Farfetchy, no need to make this difficult!" Wriggling her fingers with anticipation, a large small soon spread across her face as she noticed the avian sprawled across the ground. Truthfully, Pokemon battling was a scary thing but she was starting to get used to it all. Yumina, despite her injuries from the slash attack, jumped up and down victoriously, her little feet wriggling manically as her body flew upward slightly. Placing a hand on the head of her Pokemon to calm her down, Catherine leaned forward whilst wearing a joyful smile.
"You did it, Yumina! Now we can take both of the Farfetch'd back to Sylvester!" Looking over to Atlas, who was luckily still holding onto the first one they had encountered, Catherine quickly skipped forward to collect the second, knowing that it would likely try to get away last minute. Feeling it's cold body from the ice beams, Catherine held tightly onto the duck in order to share some of her own body heat before turning on her heel and rounding up her group. "Okay guys! This hunt is OVER! Let's head on back to Syl and give him these Pokemon back! Heehee, I can already imagine him being super happy!" Only problem now was actually finding their way back. Knowing this, the newly evolved Atlas let out a sigh and wearily handed the Farfetch'd back to Yumina to hold once again. As she squeezed onto the bird far too tightly, enough to make it almost squeak, Atlas jumped forward, hazardously hanging from the side of a tree trunk.
In his younger stage, he had tried to lead the group in the right direction but with his new found senses, he could easily pick up on the smells and sounds of another human close by. "Hmm? What is it, Atlas? Found something?!" Eyes sparkling in awe over her newly evolved friend, he rather coolly leant his head to the direction in front of them, suggesting for them to go that way before moving on ahead. Getting the idea, Catherine giggled and both herself and her Pokemon followed after him.
With the captured Farchet'd bundled in his Spinarak's silk, Alex held the Farfetch'd like a baby and returned to a part of the forest that he seemed to have encounter before. He stood and looked around for a moment, before remembering which part he came from. Then, signaling to his Pokemon, he continued walking to a different path, and headed off to a new direction. With that in mind, he wondered where the next Farfetch'd was hiding. He kept an eye out as he continued walking with his group of Pokemon who are ineffective against flying.
As Ethan continued to look for the Farfetch'd, he was wondering if he was in the right direction at all. He had never stepped foot in the forest, and this forest was kind of like a maze to him. With his Cottonee and Baltoy out and loitering about, he continued his casual search for this Farfetch'd. Although his two Pokemon weren't exactly helping, but more like enjoying themselves being out of the Pokeball. This part of the forest seemed pleasant though, as he could smell the trees bearing fruits emitting an aromatic odor. He stretched out his arms and just stood still, and then taking in a deep breath to smell the beautiful scent of nature.
As Ethan stopped to take a breath the sounds of something slashing a hard object quickly caught his attention. Near one of the trees in the Orchard Farfetch'd was practicing it's slashing techniques to see just how much the trees could take. It hated to cut things as part of it's job but whenever it could go out on it's own it loved to see just how strong it was. Farfetch'd was enjoying itself as bark from the tree flung off with every slash and a gaping cut formed across the area which it had practiced on. As the bird rested for just a moment it turned it's head to see Ethan and it began to freak out. It knew Sylvester must have sent him to bring it back to him.
" Faaaaaaaarrrrrrrrfettttttttttttccccccccchhhhhhhhhh'd" It cried as it walked closer to Alex. It was not very pleased that Ethan had not only been watching it train but on top of that the very thought of being forced to go back and help that bumbling idiot cut trees was an insult. Holding out it's leek the duck looked at Ethan with a determined pair of eyes willing to do anything to keep it's freedom. The only way it was going back to Sylvester was after a fight which it had no intentions of losing.
Farfetch'd (Level 20) will not go back to Sylvester without a battle. Please select a Pokemon. The battle will be taking place here.
Using a combination of his sentient clay and speedy mouse Pokemons, Ethan was fairly quick to complete his task with finding the two runaway Farfetch'd and collecting the knocked out bodies back to the owner. Holding the passed out avian with his hands, Ethan brisk walked his way back toward the forest dweller's house. He was making his way quickly though, as he had some plans to do in Goldenrod City, and he didn't want to waste any time in the forest, even though he would somewhat like to. Today was not the day to spend in the forest.
Making his way to the next area Tyler came upon the Enchanted Orchard. With him around it would not be enchanted for long especially if he managed to find what he was after. As Blitz led the way with Hollenhund and Mania following beside him they began to search for their elusive prey. Just like the first one no mercy would be shown to their target when it was found and had it not been for Sylvester clearly wanting the Pokemon back alive he would kill the bird himself for giving him so much trouble. Finding the bird might prove harder than he had originally thought however as the Enchanted Forest was a rather large area and there were plenty of places to hide.
" I want everyone to spread out and find this thing so we can get the hell out of here. I do not care what you have to do to find it I just want it found. Burn the whole place down if you must, tear trees up from the ground, I do not give a Rattata's ass just find me this bird." He said almost screaming in anger. He could not go further into the forest or for that matter complete the assignment up for grabs at the Slowpoke Well yes as he did not have the HM for Cut and until he did Sylvester was his only lead. Finding the two Pokemon he wanted was proving more than a chore than he had anticipated but that would not stop him from finding it.
Ooc: Staying to hopefully encounter the 2nd Farfetch'd
The orchard was definitely an enchanting place. Though a little dark, glitters of light hung in the air and beams of silvery light scattered down through the cloud of leaves above. A blueish tint dominated the area and all manner of soothing sound as critters scurried about could be heard. It was certainly a sort of peaceful haven for those that inhabited the area, so the aggressive arrivals had all eyes on them when they entered. Though, it was only so they could all avoid the human and co. while they searched angrily for another that did not belong here.
Unfortunately for said bird the hiding residents weren't all too keen on stowing Tyler's target away. When he started to get close the oddish hiding beside Farfetch'd began to get nervous; real nervous. As the enraged human drew closer and closer the grass type broke under the stress. With a high pitched squeal the wild pokémon pushed Farfetch'd out of the bush and ran, leaving the bird in a bit of a pickle.
The 2nd Farfetch'd (Lv 20) appeared! Knock it out in battle and return it to Sylvester
As Farfetch'd fell unconscious after a single blow the area around the battle began to change back to normal. The pure shock of the illusions had left the bird helpless and though Mania was not expecting much of a fight she was still hoping for more. " That was all you could take? I am so relieved we caught you and your buddy. You were not worth the effort at all, I can hardly stand the wait of getting back to your master so we can collect our reward and get the hell out of here. I swear I will tear down this whole forest if I do not encounter something worthy of fighting soon." As she finished speaking however Tyler began to chuckle before speaking himself.
" That will come in good time but first we must return this pesky bird to it's owner. He is very fortunate you left it breathing but for how much longer that will be the case remains unseen as if Sylvester does not pay us well enough that Farfetch'd shall be your dinner Mania. I hear they go quite well with a leek and onions, so for it's sake it had better hope he was not lying about the payment being worthwhile." They then made their way back to the Gloomy Ravine so they could return the bird to it's owner.
Ororo came in from the Shady Glen, hoping for the best regarding finding the Farfetch’d. Who knows where the tricky bird could be hiding, the power of flight really helped the Pokemon evade the likes of Ororo and her team. Hopefully the bird would be on the ground, where Ororo could get to it easily. Out into the clearing she walked, looking here there and everywhere for wherever this duck might ne. This thing was certainly good at escaping.
“Alright, time to search for the duck Pokemon again.” Staryu seemed to be in agreement that it was time to really search for this Pokemon. Into the bushes they looked, searching far and wide for any sight of the rare bird. The trees held quite the variety of sweet fruits and berries that were wonderful to the sight. Although the sky was darkened, Staryu’s illuminate ability certainly helped the search. The red light flashed through the vegetation, shining its glow on any movement whatsoever. Ororo had confidence that she would find a the bird in no time at all! “Hmmm I’m not too sure if I know where this thing is. Any luck Staryu?”
(( Activating duck spawn, assuming it's here lol. Adding words to incubator ))
A Farfetch wondered the forest alone, it was getting bored of this pretty place. But it wasn't going back to his stupid trainer, so when hearing the muffled footsteps of a trainer. He got excited as he made quick work towards the the sound to find, Ororo with her Staryu. Flapping his wings as a show of aggression he waited for Ororo's response. Little did it know that Ororo was looking for it along.

As they went the ground became less dank, each step landing on firmer ground. Though Booker likely didn't notice, or appreciate, this quite as much considering his significantly lighter weight and the added difficulty of tracking the fleeing Farfetch'd. Flashlight in hand the ranger had taken to sweeping the illuminating beam in front of them, hoping to catch a glimpse of the tricky little bird, but so far nothing. He'd just have to rely on his herdier's nose; which had always proven to be fairly reliant so Damien wasn't too worried on that end. [break] [break]
Soon Damien found himself in what looked to be a completely different section of forest. Though still dark, the area had sparkles of light hovering about the air from pinpricks of calming beams finding their way down through the thick canopy. It was far more open here making it feel less suffocating; not to mention didn't quite have that old mossy smell the ravine did. Booker slowed as they reached a small glade, his nose pushed to the ground as he worked. No doubt Damien would find his pup with grass stains all over his mustache later on. The thought brought a brief chuckle to his throat as he took this moment of respite to catch his breath and do a quick sweep of the area. [break] [break]
Just when he thought he'd lost the little mischief maker he heard a loud fluff of feather through the bushes at a distance. Angry squawks mixed with the high pitched shriek of an oddish rang through the trees. The trail was renewed. Booker barked confidently then dashed off into the bushes; Damien hot on his heels.
