PostSubject: The Enemy of My Enemy Is Smelly   Wed Oct 31, 2018 9:20 am

First topic message reminder :

When Goro the croagunk had heard from a traveler that there was water nearby, this was not what he expected.

The outlaw stared at the frozen stream with a dumbfounded look on his face, his hairless brow twitching in irritation. He was cold, tired, hungry, and he was already sick of eating snow. He'd run out of food for this little trip this morning and he was days away from any kind of civilization. His stomach was already rumbling idly and he was quite thirsty. And it seemed that a nice, ice-cold, refreshing drink was just too much to ask for.

He sighed and turned away from the large body of ice, his breath steaming in the cold of the afternoon. He could hear the sound of water rushing underneath the icy river, so it was probably just the top that was frozen over. But how on earth was he supposed to get to it without falling under and drowning? He croaked loudly in frustration, sitting down in the snow and crossing his arms in thought.

Goro was distinguishable by others of his kind by a few different markers. Perhaps most notably was his left hand - it was quite misshapen and he was always gentle with it nowadays, hinting at a significant injury. A red-stained, tattered joy ribbon was tied to his left bicep, and in his other hand was a bindle containing his supplies (or what was left of them).

To any onlooker, he probably looked like a homeless vagabond down on his luck. In actuality, he was a very bored outlaw with nothing better to do with his time than to get himself into trouble like this.

Opal wasn't expecting more quakes right at that moment, and certainly not from such a close source. She took another tumble, but was quicker to get up this time. Furious, she turned back around to face the frog, having put two and two together.

"Hey! What gives?!" she demanded, not understanding the stranger's intentions. Was this frog really so petty as to cause an earthquake just because she thought he was smelly? He should really bathe if he had such a problem with that. If he didn't clean himself, of course everyone is going to think he smells. Sure, being a poison type didn't help, but he could still put some effort in.

The outlaw shrugged easily in response, completely unrepentant about his awful behavior. He wanted her to stick around; the sunny day trick brought much-needed warmth to his cold everything. If she left, he wouldn't have access to that anymore. So if he needed to bully the crap out of her until he got what he wanted, that's just what he was going to do.

"Well, I ain't done with ya." He did feel a little bit bad about being cruel, but only a little. Not enough to sway him into being nice or civil, legends forbid. "I'm still cold. And yer a fire type, I bet."

Goro leaned forward on his haunches and paused, staring expectantly at the growlithe, presumably waiting for her to confirm or deny his assumption. The morality of his actions didn't faze Goro at all. To him, this was just the way the world worked. You took what you wanted, and if you were stronger than the other person then it usually worked out. If you weren't, you figured that out the hard way, and it was incentive to get stronger next time you wanted something.

"Yes, I am, but you could have just asked me to stick around," the growlithe growled. Although the frog was stinky, Opal would have stayed if she'd been asked to. Now she was less inclined to do so, but she had to pick the right moment to run away. Or try to turn this around and leave him the one feeling intimidated. Opal shifted her posture, making sure her bag was in full view of her saviour turned assailant. That might seem like a silly thing to do when someone was attacking her, but the pup had a plan.

Pinned to the bag was a badge. This was not just any badge, however. What Opal was flashing to the frog was an insignia that represented membership of the Guild based in Grassveil Town. It was polished and shining, as Opal was proud of her position in such a wonderful organisation. She wanted to send the message that she had allies, and that those allies would hunt him down and punish him if anything happened to her.

(1 energy from new page)

Goro shrugged again in response. Yeah, he could have asked, but he had a feeling that wouldn't have worked. She'd have probably just said no and kept walking. This way, he cut through all the pretenses and put his cards on the table for everyone to see. He took a few more steps toward Opal, studying her intently now that most of the snow had melted off of her. Fire-type was probably right. She had the coloring for it, to say nothing of her boldness.

"Maybe," he said, tilting his head. He squinted when he caught a flash of something shiny pinned to her bag. "Say...you're from Grassveil, aint'cha?"

He'd seen something similar once on a rescue team member before. He had only been to Grassveil once, but he knew about the Guild there. He'd met someone who worked there, actually. Goro hadn't been terribly impressed by that guy. Though he'd heard several intimidating stories about other guild members since he'd been getting out more - it seemed like they had some heavy hitters and a lot of babies. He wondered which one this growlithe was.

A stray thought occurred to him. Grassveil was undoubtedly one of the biggest towns, and this pokemon had access to their outlaw boards. Rainfront might have had one, too, but he hadn't seen it yet as he didn't spend a lot of time in town. But he'd been wondering whether or not he'd made a certain status with some of his more...bolder activities, as of late. "You ever see my face before?"

[Energy: 1]

Opal was a relatively new Guild member. While she wasn't a heavy hitter just yet, she'd be most upset if someone called her a baby. She was young, sure, but she was dedicated and fearless. The growlithe stood her ground as the ornery stranger approached. "Yeah, that's right," she answered his first question in a confident voice. Was her ploy really working?

Then the second question arrived. This one was more sinister in nature, but Opal was unaware of the intent behind it. "No. Should I have?"

Why did the frog ask that? Was he from Grassveil?

"Oh," Well, that was probably good news. This pup probably walked by the outlaw boards every other day, and if she hadn't seen a croagunk posted up there then it means he hadn't been ousted yet. He still had some time left as a regular pokemon who could walk into town without looking over his shoulder waiting for the law to pounce on him.

...Maybe. If this girl was still a baby, then maybe she just hadn't gotten access to outlaw jobs yet. He didn't know; Goro knew almost nothing when it came to the specifics of that kind of work. He just knew that pokemon would put in requests for help, and guilds often sent out teams to give that kind of help in return for money and other compensation. Come to think of it, learning how their whole hunt-down-the-big-bad-outlaw process worked could make his life easier later when he definitely would be one. He had a guild member practically at his mercy right now. Other things came first, though.

"You're sure? You ain't never seen a poster of a croagunk hangin' around your guild someplace?" Goro unfolded his arms and leaned in a little closer to the puppy pokemon, hoping to convey how serious he was about this.

It was kind of important to know - police and guild members hunting him down would be a pain in his butt. It could end up kind of fun every once in a while, but they'd be showing up on their terms. No doubt they'd interrupt him when he was working since that seemed to be what he was up to more often than not nowadays...this little training/vacation trip notwithstanding. Or when he was at home, legends forbid. He didn't know what he would do if some rescue team showed up on his doorstep wanting to arrest him.

Opal bore her teeth when the frog leaned in. A croagunk, he said he was? Wow, even the name of his species sounded smelly! She didn't like how insistent he was getting with his questioning. It was almost as if he was expecting to be on the outlaw board...

Oh dear.

There was a real live criminal standing right in front of her! What to do? Obviously he needed to be arrested, but Opal had prepared for a scouting trip, not a chase. The growlithe would have to rely on her brute strength. Her target looked weak enough with that bad arm of his, but what moves did he possess? Earthquake was the only one she knew about, and that was strong against her typing. This had the potential to get rather ugly.

"I see... I'm going to have to stop you, you know. Consider yourself under arrest," Opal declared in a formal tone. This was serious business, so the pup had to be serious about it. She then went right back to bared teeth and began to figure out a plan of attack. Should she disable the croagunk's good arm or go for the legs and bring him to the ground? Maybe startling him with an Ember to the face would be a good opening move? Opal took a deep breath and prepared herself for-

-tink-

Huh? What was that? Something had just hit her on the head!

-tinktinktinktinktink-

Ice was falling from the sky! It was getting colder again, too! Opal was confused. Sunny Day was supposed to work longer than a few minutes. Something had gone wrong, but what? The pup looked around for the answer, but it wasn't until a loud and angry roar drew her attention to the stream that she found it.

The source of the roar came from a large, blue, blubbery pokemon with two massive tusks hanging from its upper jaw. It burst from the water and slammed onto the ice in front of the two youngsters. As it did so, the Hail it had used intensified. The beast fixed dog and frog with a furious glare and looked like it was about to charge.

Well, that was the most frustrating answer he could have gotten. Goro frowned as he stood straight and looked down on the growlithe. A yes or a no definitely would have sufficed; it sounded like she was guessing he was an outlaw, and what he wanted was a hard confirmation. Not a puppy who was too eager to chase glory that she was willing to get herself into trouble.

The croagunk took a wary step back when she bared her teeth at him, contemplating how best to handle this pokemon. Obviously, he could just earthquake her to hell - he'd done a little bit of that already, honestly, but that was the easy solution. He kind of wanted to duke it out with her. It'd been a bit since his last good scrap, and maybe she would be more cooperative after a good beating. His legs spread slightly, his center of gravity lowering, and he shook out his right arm in preparation for a fight.

Then a chunk of ice dropped on his head.

He flinched with the blow, raising his hand as he looked up at the sky. Great. Just what he needed: a hailstorm. The pup's sunny day was wasting away as the hail took over, and he heard the telltale, continuous tinktinktinktink of hail crashing into the ice and snow all around him. He felt the bite of coldness sink into him all over again, and he had to suppress another shiver. He failed to do so when an ominous roar burst from the frozen stream, and Goro's attention immediately snapped over.

A walrein had joined the scene, and it looked angry. He took another few steps back, intimidated despite himself. "Oh, shit."

There was no time to say anything else, as suddenly the beast came charging. To Goro's horror, it moved much quicker than one would expect from such a large pokemon, and suddenly hundreds of pounds of blubber, muscle, tusks, and rage was in his face. The walrein raised up on its haunches before swinging back down, a telltale body slam attack aimed at both of the intruding explorers.

For his part, Goro desperately threw himself bodily to the side, landing a few feet away in a sloppy roll in the snow. The fighting type sprung up into a ready half-crouch. His broken left hand was clutching his bindle painfully tight, but he ignored the twinges of warning pain emanating from it. He had a bigger problem, a much, much bigger problem on his hands right now.

Opal's fight with the croagunk would have to wait. This giant pokemon wasn't going to leave them be, and this was made all the more obvious when the growlithe found herself scrambling out of the way as it launched itself at them with a mighty Body Slam.

"Look, I don't like you, but we're going to have to work together on this," Opal called to the smelly outlaw, "I don't think either of us can beat this thing on our own."

While the pair had to fight for their own safety, Opal also desired to learn what had angered the walrein so. An explorer's job was not to start trouble, but to stop it. If she could reason with this pokemon and assist him, the world would be a better place. Helping others would make everything better, little by little.

"Uh... Hey there? We can talk about this..." Opal addressed the blue beast, hoping they would listen.

Goro kept still as he stared down the giant walrein. The thing was gigantic and looked quite powerful, and as its enraged eyes went from him to the explorer, he felt a shiver run up his spine. Come to think of it, this might not be the worst thing. This could be good practice for his new job. Doubtless, he would come across big heavy types like this in the future, so this would be a valuable experience.

But no way was he going to accept the help of some goodie-two-shoes explorer. Maybe he could use her - she seemed like she could make good bait for the big water type, but she wasn't going to help him.

The great walrus pokemon rumbled, turning in such a manner that it could keep both Goro and the growlithe in its sight. It clearly had no intention of talking, which suited Goro just fine. Goro took a few steps away from the big beast, planting his bindle into a mound of snow. His very recent defeats were fresh in his mind; he could not fight the same way he always did. Simply planting his feet and trading hits with a pokemon like this would just lead to another loss.

"Speak for yourself," The memory of a fight against a buizel in the swamp flashed in his mind. Hit-and-run was a plan he could try, to start with at least. The beast growled again, aggravated. Goro tensed. "I don't need no help."

The walrein reared its head back, a strained, low sound emanating from its throat. It seemed to almost cough a few times before its great heat snapped forward and it spat out a giant glob of hard ice, fast. On reflex, Goro ducked, feeling the bottom of the ice ball graze the top of his head. He heard the crunch of snow, the ice projectile landing somewhere behind him, but before he could react, the walrein reared its head back once more.

It was about to fire another one. This time, though, its eyes were trained on the fire-type.
