Sniffingly her way through the city of Goldenrod, it must've looked weird for a girl to actually have a cold in the middle of Summer. Truth was, no matter where she dashed off to train or complete a mission, a dark rain cloud had been following her and because of that, she fell into the open arms of the vile common cold. Having a free day, the brunette had decided to do a bit of window shopping but it wasn't clothes at the end of it all which had caught her attention. Posters were stamped all over the place about the opening of a Bug Catching Contest and for some reason, she found her feet traveling towards the National Park on the edge of the city. She wasn't a huge bug fan but she didn't hate them either, this was just a mere chance to get her old trainer senses tingling instead of being cooped up in the Rocket base all day. Following the triangle paper flags which were strung along the many lamp posts leading to the entrance, Sharada readjusted her summer attire before stepping through the doors and into a foyer of the gate way house.
Merely passing through with the aide of numerous signs, a small sneeze escaped into her cupped hands as she exited back out into the open. Eyes widening at the sight of the Azalea Gym Leader, Bugsy, getting his stage all ready. Walking forward, she joined on the end of the line where two girls were already standing. A really beautiful auburn haired girl and a sweet little blonde, then appearing to her right were a couple of blonde men. Not really having enough time to look at either of them properly, her icy blue gaze was taken forward as Bugsy began his speech. Missing out on the sight of a certain familiar face creeping in late, Sharada's mind was instead reluctant on the idea of handing in her Pokeballs. She knew exactly who she wanted to use but at the same time, couldnt bare the idea of running into something huge and therefore putting Greil in danger. Sighing, it was far too late now. Depositing the rest of her team, the brunette wasn't all that keen to hang around. If all the other contestants wanted to be friends and introduce themselves, it was up to them, she just wanted to do a bit of searching in peace.
Collecting the odd balls which were specially designed for this event, Sharada immediately dashed off in one direction, hoping that no one would follow. Wading straight into the tall grass, her eyes darted around. "Bugs are usually in trees right? Gah..." Releasing yet another sneeze from her bunged up nose as some pollen tickled her senses, she continued to waggle forward, eyes looking down at Greil's ball. Pausing, she felt by now things would be okay. She didn't want anyone else to see her blind, tail-less friend. Tossing it forward into the grass, the light of light eventually faded down into a pink Slowpoke, a confused yawn escaping his jaw. "Greil." Her voice spoke calmly, even if it was a bit weird due to her nose, "We're in some bug contest, let's just use it as a bit of bonding time, eh? Dont worry, if things get tough, we'll be running." Scooping the heavy creature up into her arms, he seemed to burrow his head tiredly against her shoulder. The two actually hadn't been in a fight as of yet, so hopefully competing in this would dish her some simple opponents.
