{Energy: 19-10 = 9}

It was definitely a very dark place, this Shadowhue Forest. Well, he supposed that the name should have already given that away some time ago, but now it was more obvious to him than before. He had always had some lingering doubts about judging a location by its name alone. Then again, having lived near the Black Mist Mountain for much of his childhood, one would think that he would know better. If a place was named something, then he supposed nine times out of ten, it was named that for a reason. Still, even if he had taken the forest and assumed that its name was accurate, he couldn't have expected what he saw. The forest around him was extremely dark, with only very dim lighting from the sunlight above. If it weren't for his tail flame, things would probably be a lot tougher for him here.

The Charmander stood all on his own in the middle of this dark forest. He had chosen a spot that was particularly dark on purpose. After all...it was the reason he was here. Back in Grassveil Town, he had asked around about spots that would be good for training. And they had told him to specifically avoid the Shadowhue Forest. Most Pokémon who weren't part of an Exploration Team tended to, as it was dark, easy to get lost in, and the feral Pokémon were supposedly more dangerous than they were in Pecha Forest. And to him, that made this place a gold mine. After all, Hidon was here for one purpose and one purpose only. To train and better himself as much as he could. And this seemed to be the perfect place to do so. And the darkness only aided this goal.

Because the area around him was so dark, his tail that burned brightly would serve perfectly as a beacon. Any Pokémon in the nearby area would probably be able to see it and know that he was there. Should it be a wild or feral Pokémon, they would approach him, perhaps expecting easy prey to capture. If it were a level-headed Pokémon, normal Pokémon, however, he would be able to offer them assistance with his guiding light. He would have their gratitude and, if they happened to be willing to accept, he could even get them to battle with him and assist in his training.

But for now, he had nobody around him...so he had to make due. As a result, any Pokémon wandering nearby his beacon, would likely also hear dull thumping noises. As they got closer, they would be able to make out his form, claws clenched into fists, and jabbing punch after punch at the largest tree in the area. Left, right. Left, right. He continued to punch at the tree for a few minutes before finally stopping. He took a step back, wiped some sweat from his brow, and observed his handiwork. ...Unfortunately, there was not much to observe. His punches had failed to even so much as dent the bark on the tree, let alone cause anything noticeable.

"Tch...dammit," Hidon muttered to himself. "Guess I should try lifting some weights or something. I'm getting nowhere with this blasted tree." He scanned the area around him quickly in an attempt to find something that he could possibly use as a substitute for a weight. Unfortunately, tail light made poor lighting to actually be searching along the floor, so he had to take his search obnoxiously slow. Still...he was not going to give up on his training this quickly and just sit here, bored, waiting for some Pokémon to show up....

The grass-type wandered through the woods, the darkness not making her feel any better about how utterly lost she was. If only she had some light, or night vision. Unfortunately, she had neither, so she was reduced to scrambling around until her eyes got used to the dark. The Shadowveil forest seemed to be the perfect place to train now that she was getting tired of Pecha Forest. It was more challenging to see in the dark, so she figured that if she got really good at fighting in the dark, fighting in the daylight would be even easier. And it would also be fun.

Kimori was weak. She knew that. However, that never really mattered to her, because to her, fighting was the most fun she could have by herself. Plus, the more you fought the better you got at fighting, allowing you to fight more. It really was a win-win situation. So she delved deep into the shadowy forest to give herself a challenge, one that she would no doubt overcome. These thoughts and others like it wandered across Kimori's mind, much like how she wandered through the forest. Unable to see, but sensing the blurred outlines of trees and obstacles to avoid.

Far ahead, she spied something that seemed interesting. A light... Fire? Yes, fire! It seemed to be floating... Perhaps it was a ghost-type's trick. If so, perfect. That meant an enemy to fight, and that meant testing her skills in the dark. Kimori quickly climbed the nearest tree, hoping to plan a sneak attack. As she hopped from branch to branch, something struck her. If it was a ghost... It had manipulation of fire. Grass would be burnt to a crisp when lit on fire. And if it wasn't a ghost... Then it was a fire type. Probably not a feral, because there weren't any fire types that she knew lived here. So, she climbed down and walked at a normal pace towards the light.

The Fire-type Lizard Pokémon continued scanning the forest floor, but could find nothing that would serve as a suitable replacement for the weights he wanted. He could find some small, hefty stones nearby but he did not want to be carrying too many of these. It was going to be very troublesome to keep them in his claws and did not want to use them. Not when he'd have to hold too many in order to actually properly use them. He let out a small sigh when he realize that nothing here was going to be able to work like he had wanted to. He'd have to go all the way back to town in order to pick something up that he could use for strength training. But for now, he did not really feel like going through with that. He was already all the way out here in the middle of Shadowhue. He did not want to leave now, empty-handed and with nothing to show for his trip in terms of training progress.

As he started to consider leaving this part of the forest and starting to go searching for other Pokémon himself, something caught his attention. There was movement behind him and he saw a slight blur of motion. He took his time turning around to face the newcomer, however. If it had been a feral Pokémon, it probably would have either taken more care in staying hidden or would have jumped him immediately. As such, this Pokémon was likely not one of those, but another Pokémon like himself with senses intact. And as such, he had no reason to spin around and prepare for battle just yet.

When Hidon turned around completely, he saw the form of a Treecko appear before him. He looked at Kimori curiously. He had never seen a Pokémon like this before. Judging from how she looked, he assumed her to be a Grass Pokémon. A Pokémon like this was not likely to appear in the dark parts of the forest under normal circumstances. Usually, a Pokémon like this would be seen in Pecha Forest. Or at least, that's what he understood from his limited experience. "Yo," Hidon said coolly with a slight smirk, wanting to make a good first-impression. He crossed his arms and looked at her. "You lost or something? You happened to stumble on my training site." He paused at that, reconsidering what he'd just said. "...Er...well, I guess you probably didn't stumble if you followed my flame like I hoped somebody would at some point."

...Hopefully his assumptions were not wrong and this Treecko did not attack him right away. If she were, he'd be caught completely off-guard right now.

Kimori looked at the Pokemon, now recognizing him to be a Charmander. She made a good call in approaching normally, as he was in fact a regular, not-feral Pokemon. She took in what he said, and when he finished speaking she let out a laugh. "No, I'm not lost, and I'm training here too." She gave a friendly smile. "Sorry if I was interrupting you. I almost attacked you, you know. But, luckily for me, common sense kicked in when I realized that fire would probably have me in a bad situation. I'm a Grass type. As I said before, I'm here to train. Is it worthwhile to train here? Or just nah?"

She knew that she was getting on the talkative side, but couldn't really stop herself. This happened quite frequently, actually. The small Treecko was always like this when she met a new Pokemon, especially one where she had never seen its particular species before. And before she could stop herself, she opened up her horribly talkative mouth and began speaking again. "So... My name is Kimori. You?"

Hidon nodded when the Treecko revealed that she was certainly not lost at the moment. And while he was slightly relieved that he wouldn't have to do some kind of escort mission on their way out of the forest, he was mildly disappointed that he wouldn't get a chance to play the hero like he liked. But, a smirk still played on his face regardless, thanks to what Kimori had said next. "So, you're here for training too, are you?" he asked. "That's just what I was looking for, to be honest. And actually...I would've have minded if you had attacked me. That's why I'm here, after all." He then grinned slightly. "But yeah, I could tell you were a Grass-type Pokémon. But you don't need to worry about fire from me. I'll let you in on a bit of a secret. I can't actually use Fire-type attacks yet."

Normally, he would not have revealed such information to anybody. Truthfully, he found it rather embarrassing being a Fire-type Pokémon with no Fire-type attacks. However, if it helped convince this Treecko to battle with him, then it would be worth it in the end. He then nodded to the Treecko again when she finally introduced herself. "Oh yeah, right," he replied, forgetting the common courtesy about introductions. He grinned and put his fists to his waist, sticking his chest out pridefully. "The name's Hidon. and I'm going to become the greatest, strongest explorer this world's ever seen."

She gave an excited look of her own as she listened on. Perhaps they could even train together! Then both of them would become stronger! Kimori became more and more inwardly excited at the thought of a training partner.

No Fire-type attacks? Well, that was good news for her, but that had to be kind of embarrassing for him. Poor guy. "Hmm... well, I hope you get Fire attacks soon.... I guess." He certainly seemed rather headstrong and confident for a Fire Type with no Fire attacks.

She heard his introduction and smiled. The greatest explorer.... well, that certainly could be possible when he evolved. Charmelion and Charizard were both fearsome pokemon, for sure. So Kimori had no doubt that Hidon could achieve his goal.

Hidon saw the excited look on Kimori's face and couldn't help but grin slightly more. He was glad to see that she looked as though she were on board with this whole training partner idea of his. Now all he needed to do...was get around to asking her. But first, before he could get to that point, he supposed he needed to address what she said first. After all, she seemed to be wanting to be polite to him. He didn't really care one way or another about how courteous she was, but he should probably respect her and give her some kind of feedback.

"Heheh...thanks, but I don't need fire." he said, his smug grin growing even wider. "Even if I never learn how to spit fire, I'd still be able to make myself the strongest." He then paused and scratched his cheek with one of his claws. Perhaps he was overdoing it a bit? He certainly didn't want to scare her off or anything. "Erm...in any case, I was wondering.... Would you be interested in a battle with me?" His smug grin quickly turned into a genuine, excited and happy smile. "I haven't had the chance to battle someone who took me seriously in a while. And I'm sure it'd make us both a bit stronger in the end. So what d'you say?"

The Charmander looked the Treecko confidently and excitedly in her eyes, hoping she would accept his challenge.
