Word of the Pokemon bounty hunter with rare Pokemon had reached far and wide, it seemed, and Holland had decided to see what there was to offer. He came with both Violet and Yucca out of their pokeballs, so that they could see what everything was about. Thus far, Violet and Yucca had not gotten along, and Holland feared that he would need to get rid of the little Sandshrew as much as he enjoyed the desert Pokemon's company. It just wasn't in him to keep the Pokemon if Violet wasn't going to get along - he and Violet shared a special connection that would trump any other Pokemon he caught.

It was about midday, so people were milling about on their way to lunch or coming from a meal. As he moved toward the stall that this bounty hunter had set up, he caught the scent of a fresh salad with a side of sushi. Already he could hear Yew smacking his lips, and before he knew it the Sandshrew had scooted off to beg for remnants off the woman that was trying to enjoy a lunch.

A sheepish grin crossed Holland's face as he approached at a quicker pace, with Violet lose to his legs. "Ah, I'm sorry about him," a hand went to ruffle the back of his silver hair, somewhat embarrassed by the Sandshrew's behavior.

Violet shot a saucy look in the Sandshrew's direction, her little trunk practically in the air as she refused to speak. Maybe the bounty hunter would want the Sandshrew after all!

Holland did take note of the advertisement that this woman offered a Mawile in trade for a Sandshrew, and he wondered if the woman would like Yucca. A Mawile seemed really awesome! Just that edge of coolness that surrounded the fairy-steel type, that might actually work well in competing in a different category besides just cute, when it came to coordinating. As he was certain that Violet most definitely fit into the cute category.

"I noticed your advertisement for trades... If he's not too much trouble I'd like to offer my Sandshrew up for your Mawile. He seems to like you." While Holland spoke, Yucca's chubby arms were up in the air, waiting for a piece of sushi or some greens to rain down on him. To the Sandshrew, it honestly didn't matter, he just wanted some food and didn't really have a preference for what it turned out to be.

tagged - other - WD: 410

NICKNAME: Yucca "Yew"
SPECIES: Sandshrew
GENDER: Male
ABILITY: Sand Veil LEVEL: 12
PERSONALITY: Sandshrew has been surviving on his own for some time now in the desert. As a result, he's got a cautious, yet hardy nature to him. He's had to scrounge for food and avoid dangers like larger Pokemon most of his life; at the same time, he's had to take risks just for meals as well as fight when push came to shove. Now that he's captured, he's looking to enjoy the spoils of domesticity that were never afforded him before. That means you can expect he'll want lots of treats, lots of rest, and a heck of a lot of love. This little guy should make a good Pokemon for any trainer who can provide those three things.
ATTACKS: Sand Attack, Poison Sting, Scratch, Defense Curl, Rollout, & Hone Claws

"Huh - oh! " Enjoying an afternoon lunch in the middle of a city park was none other than Juliana herself. Beside her stood a Goodra, hands around an apple as it bit into the juicy fruit, sludge leaking all around it's mouth as it smacked it's lips together. (Gooo?) he said, offering his poison-stained half-apple to the Sandshrew. "Oh! No, Goodie - here, little guy, have a fresh one instead, " she said, laughing, reaching into her picnic basket to then give it to the small ground-type as it's trainer walked up.

Julianna's brows rose at the boy's proposal, then she grinned - a shark's grin, teeth and all. "That sounds perfect." She leaned down, rubbing the ground-type's skull affectionately, and then reached into her satchel before tossing a pokeball at him. "He's all yours... good luck."

Then she winked.


MAWILE | LEVEL 12 | HYPER CUTTER/INTIMIDATE
BITE, FAKE TEARS, ASTONISH,
FAIRY WIND, GROWL, TAUNT

This guy? Well, he can certainly be called a bit of an idiot. His thick skull seems to sum up his personality; he rarely catches a hint. Although he's dopey, he's really very sweet and always tries to show his affection in the form of occasional bites. Well, affectionate nips he calls them, though catching the back end of him when he's too excitable, well, has his downfalls. He's also quite interested in the ladies, often trying cheesy pickup lines to flatter them, although he's far from a pervert. Flashy and a bit of a narcissist, Mawile certainly loves the limelight even if he might not be the most elegant of pokemon.

reminder: you can go to madam cheng's in goldstone lounge to adjust movesets (for a fee!) and to always include your trading pokemon stats at the end of your post

Truth be told, he was a bit sad to see the Sandshrew leave. Unlike Violet, he had enjoyed the hungry little Pokemon's company. With a smile flashed in return, he caught the pokeball that the bounty hunter sent his way after a small fumble. "Thank you!" He bent down then, extending a hand to Yucca. "I'll miss you little guy. Thanks for letting me catch you, and sorry Violet's such a pain." Beside him, the Phanpy made a little noise of disgust, still pressed closely to Holland's side. He hoped the Sandshrew would be well as he placed the pokeball next to the bounty hunter's food. "Take good care of him." With the Mawile's pokeball in tow, Holland would make to the leave the strange woman alone.

seven devils around you
That had been... a trip, to say the least. Arcania had made a stop by her shop to get a change of clothes, since the ones she'd been wearing were covered with dust from the underground and she had no desire to speak to someone this important looking less than her best. Actually, she never wanted anyone to see her as less than her best, but the point still stood.

Geralt drifted along beside her as usual, keeping an eye out for the woman they were looking for. Luckily, it wasn't particularly difficult to find her, and Arcania approached silently, nodding to the Yamask who was balancing a Pokeball on his mask. "A Drilburr," she said simply. "I was told you possess a Zorua."

She really hoped the woman wouldn't make her release the Drilburr to prove that was what she possessed, because she didn't want to have to listen to its yammering and the crying that would no doubt start up when it realized she wasn't intending to keep it. To be fair, she'd only lied to it a little. Children seldom were smart enough to understand nuance, however, which was one reason in a list of many why she didn't like them. So annoying, and always needing to be coddled. It was loathesome.

For now, all Arcania could do was hope the woman would accept the trade readily and that the Pokemon she recieved in return wasn't an utter weakling. She had no idea how experienced it would be, and it had occurred to her that she might have to do some serious work on it to get it up to par with the rest of her team.

Well, she could always take a shortcut and have the rest of her team train it for her.



Capture thread

spoiler (show/hide)

SPECIES: no.529 Drilbur
ABILITY: sand rush/sand force
GENDER: male
PERSONALITY: Drilbur is a childish Pokemon; after all, he only hatched nine months ago. He is prone to throwing tantrums. His squeaking voice can reach octaves high enough to shatter glass. However, Drilbur is a playful creature and immensely curious. The power of his sense of smell guides him forward in his endeavors. Very energetic, he is hard to reign in once he gets excited about something. Drilbur means well, though his selfish tendencies make it hard for him to see others problems. He only wants to go with Arcania because he thinks she smells good.
LEVEL: 19
ATTACKS: metal claw, dig, fury swipes, rapid spin, mud sport, scratch.

Jinoa was a great region, and Julianna was having a great time traveling. Plus, Goodie - her faithful Goodra - seemed to enjoy the travels nice enough, along with the rest of their team. Still, her small pit-stop in the region was starting to get kind of long, and Julianna was beginning to think about what places she might travel next.

Walking along the street, she was accosted by a red-haired girl and her Yamask. Rather than be surprised, Julianna merely grinned. "Looks like you got your news from a reliable source. Excellent!" It wasn't for herself, so honestly Julianna didn't care what kind of pokemon it was. She grabbed the pokeball, pocketed it into her satchel, and handed the Tricky Fox Pokemon's sphere over to the short girl. "Keep an eye on him. He's kinda fiesty."


ZORUA| LEVEL 19 | ILLUSION
SCRATCH, LEER, PURSUIT,
FAKE TEARS, FURY SWIPES, FEINT ATTACK

Bold, a little reckless but with a charming personality, this Zorua is sure to give his trainer their money's worth. He may not seem like the brightest pokemon at first, but he makes up for it with his confidence and natural innate sense. He just has a Good Feeling ™ for things, and often acts on these feelings, regardless of whether he's thought his plans through or not. He's the rebellious sort, and will probably ignore his trainer's command on more than one occasion.

Despite his immaturity, he's a pretty competent pokemon, winning more battles than he's lost. In actuality, he's extremely intelligent and calculating, but his priorities seemed to be in disorder; he's often more focused on humor than work, and would rather chase a "cool lead" than follow his trainer's command. He's actually an avid fan of Die Hard, loves car chases and crime films, and loves the arresting-bad-guys part the most. Otherwise, Zorua can be laid-back and tends to not take things seriously -- if they're not of immediate interest to him. Zorua also has abandonment issues, considering he's never had a father in his life, though he tries not to be pessimistic and often brushes over these instances with a jokingly self-deprecating comment.
