    "Calm down, Pressie, we're almost there," Algar cooed, sweating as he climbed up the particularly steep hill. On his shoulder, Pressie was ruffling her feathers and causing a fuss, visibly upset at the change in temperatures and humidity; it was sticking her feathers and making her uncomfortable, and Pressie was never one for suffering on her own. Algar very nearly got a face full of black feathers as he made it to the top of the hill, and if he hadn't caught his balance he'd be showing up to meet Babbs with a broken arm. He caught his breath, sighing to himself as Pressie kept fussing on his shoulder, and then stepped out on the path and stretched.

    After a few hours in the woods near Mount Deckbi, even the humid air felt good to Algar. He'd been too excited to head out on another Park run, and decided to show up and loiter around the park until the meeting time arrived. While normal people would've thus shown up early, Algar glanced at his watch to find out he was already 5 minutes late. He'd gotten lost while wandering around; he was trying to avoid Pokemon, since he didn't want anyone to think he was poaching or anything, and completely lost track of time. But who wouldn't be excited? Not only was he going into the Park with Babbs again, and eager to catch new Pokemon, but he'd also signed up to be matched with a random Trainer partner as well. The small scrap of paper Algar grabbed before heading out told him that the Trainer's name was Evan, which seemed normal enough, and Algar was excited to see what kind of Pokemon his counterpart would bring. He hoped he had enough items for the both of them too; best make a good impression on his new (hopefully) friend!

    Algar recalled Pressie into her Pokeball, something he figured she'd be happy about, and then took off at a jog down the path towards the meeting spot. He hoped he'd be the first there, despite his tardiness, and that at the very least he wouldn't be seen running late by Babbs, but it was not to be. He saw her, leaning on her cane and waiting in the exact spot he was to meet them in, and sauntered over to her as if he was in trouble. "Hey Babbs, good to see ya. Sorry I'm so late," he said, with a glance at his watch again telling him he was around 10 minutes late. "I've gotten stronger since we last met, I promise! Thanks for agreeing to take me back in, I'll do better this time!" And then, he plopped to the ground, criss-cross-applesauce, waiting for the other Trainer to arrive.

    The pair doesn't wait long at all before they see a brightly-colored speck in the sky. It seems to be coming from roughly the direction of the ranger outpost, curving somewhat as it approaches the slopes of the mountain. As it punches through a low-hanging cloud, it's more clear that it's a large orange Pokemon with impossibly small blue wings. It begins to spiral as it descends and more details become visible. It has a cream-colored underbelly, a pair of stubby antennae, a large tail and a figure in a dark gray cloak on its back. It finally spots the pair and dives, swooping in to a gentle landing before them.

    The figure on its back disentangles itself from a cord and leather harness, then slides down the Dragonite's flank. Under the cloak is a young man with tousled blonde hair and an infectious smile, cargo pants and a tan vest festooned with pockets. "Sorry I'm late, we took a wrong turn at that creepy mansion and had to double back. Some friendly Talonflame pointed us in the right direction, though." Pulling an apple from a bulging belt pouch, he handed it to the Dragonite with a quiet thanks and pat on its large arm.

    Turning back to the pair, he strode forward and offered a hand. "I'm Evan, pleased to meet you!" As he gets closer you can make out more of his outfit - dark colors, heavy boots, and pinned to his collar is a lacquered pin of a stylized red letter R.

    They're late.

    Does Babbs care that much? No, not really. But does it give her a good way to heckle her two charges on this new adventure? Oh, boy, does it ever. Babbs suppresses the smirk that tempts her features as she waits, patiently. Algar, especially, would be a prime target for this one. The thought is enriched further as she sees the boy appear on the hilly slope in the distance, frolicking down in an even jog. Babbs puts on her best mildly-annoyed face as he approaches: raised left brow, slightly twisted lips, flabby jowls drawn a little taut. The way he approaches her like a child prepared for a scolding almost seals the deal for her, nearly breaking her facade, but she maintains it as he apologizes, and cheerily promises to do better.

    "You should be ashamed, lad," she chastises him lightly, "We could have had another one of your five-minute runs in the time I was waiting for ya'. I don't get those minutes back, y'know?" But as soon as she looks at him plopping down into a criss-cross sit, she can't maintain the grumpy act any longer, and instead her features break out into a good-natured grin. Blue eyes crinkle with the width of her smile. "Just joshin' ya', Algar, good to see ya'."

    A bulky figure breaking through the clouds up above catches her attention. She watches the speck grow in the overcast sky, spiraling down until she recognizes the telltale heft of a Dragonite. The rider dismounts as they land, pulling back a cloak to reveal the blonde hair she'd been advised to be on the lookout for. Babbs gives a smirk as he comments on the Ruined Manor and the friendly messenger Talonflame--that one was always her favorite, too.

    Both sets of knobby fingers reach out to accept the offered hand for shaking, clasping around both sides with the near-crushing force of a mighty powerful handshake. She shakes up and a down a few times before releasing, smiling. "Howdy, Evan. The name's Babbs, and it's a pleasure!" It's only then that her eyes fall on the tiny red pin on his collar, and while mild recognition registers on her features, the rest lays hidden below--caution. Even the recognition is brief as she whirls back to look at the mountain, and at the dark clouds that hide its peak.

    Her backpack, almost larger than herself, swings off her back. It only takes a couple of minutes of rummaging before she procures three folded garments of rubbery material. She sets aside the yellow, and hands the green to Algar and the orange to Evan. "Keep these handy in case it rains." If she were here on her own, she'd be wearing more muted colors--things that would blend in, allow them to move stealthily. But Deckbi often became dangerous in the rain. Without the roots of foliage to hold the ground together in the higher regions, sudden rain often meant unpredictable landslides, and she wanted to make sure they were highly visible in the case of an accident.

    "Keep a Pokemon out, and we'll start headin' up. We'll be taking the usual path up today, though we may take some detours into the caves if the rain gets the best of us." She begins shuffling along the dusty earth toward the path that snakes up the slopes.

    Babbs's teasing almost got the better of Algar, but when he sat down and she said she was kidding he perked right back up. It wasn't long before the other trainer arrived, and on the back of a Dragonite no less! Algar hadn't ever seen a Dragonite in person before; immediately he was drawn to how huge it was, as well as the bright yellow hue. With how small its wings were Algar was surprised it could fly, but he'd heard that Dragonite used to run as mail couriers in the past, and he doubt they walked to do that with their lumbering bodies. Its belly was layered white, and looked so soft and cute... Algar finally snapped out of it and turned to Evan, the other Trainer, who hopped down and went straight to Babbs to shake her hand. Evan was well dressed; dark colors and the hood made him almost look like Lance the Champion of Johto, if not for the bright hair, which was surprisingly similar to a friend of his. Evan seemed friendly enough, and San was glad he wouldn't have to make too huge of a first impression. He called over, "I'm Algar by the way, nice to meet you Evan!"

    With greetings out of the way, Babbs pulled out some cool raingear for the both of them, and then started off on the path up the hill. Algar, however, was in a bit of a dilemma, and hung back as they started trudging. Babbs had said to keep a Pokemon out; Murkrow hated the humidity and probably would refuse to come out of the ball, and Algar wasn't sure if he should send a Pokemon that could summon a snow storm out just yet. Which left Starmie, but... outside of water, could Starmie keep up? "Guess we'll have to see, huh," Algar thought as he released the third Pokeball on his belt. A flash of red light, muted in the darkness of the impending rainstorm, and Starmie came out to shake off sleep. Eight pointed purple arms held a yellow brace with a large red gem in the middle, and the signature "hiyah" let Algar know that it was ready. Starmie began walking up the hill... painfully slowly. Algar knew that Starmie weighed around two hundred pounds, so carrying it in his arms was out of the question, and so he lugged Starmie into the straps of his backpack and started up the hill again, falling behind his companions a bit as the added weight held him back a bit. Suddenly, however, Starmie started weighing a lot less, and Algar turned around to see it using Minimize to reduce its weight and size a bit. Algar chuckled and thanked his friend, told them to watch out behind them just in case, and continued up the path.

    They had walked for around 10 minutes when Algar decided to strike up a conversation. "So, where are you from Evan? What brings you to Mount Deckbi?"

    (OOC note - Dragonite is Mild rather than Jolly.)

    Evan smiled at the other two after introductions were complete. He looks relieved to shed the heavy cloak he had been wearing; it was sweltering now that the wind wasn’t keeping him cool. Folding the arms in, he rolls it from the collar down to the drape into a tight cylinder. Under the cloak he had been wearing a small day-pack with a couple straps and he cinches it to the bottom of the pack like a bedroll. Taking the thinner orange raincoat, he pulls it on and looks back at his Pokemon. “Hey, we almost match!”

    Dragonite smiled back at Evan, flexing its wings.

    “Yeah, I know, almost,” Evan replied. He patted the large orange dragon’s flank with affection. “You’re probably tired after the flight, do you want to walk with us or rest back in the Pokeball?”

    Dragonite mimed a yawn in response, looking pointedly back at Evan’s belt.

    “Sure thing, buddy. Rest up and I’ll see you in a bit.” Evan recalled him to the Pokeball, then drew forth a second one. “Blastoise, come on out!”

    The familiar flash of red light resolved into a hulking, upright turtle with a tan stomach, blue limbs, and a dark brown shell. Two large cannons poked from behind its shoulders and it blinked a few times, staring around. “Blast!” it said, and then buried the trainer in a big hug.

    “Ah!” Evan laughed. “Hi to you too! I can’t walk if you’re squishing me!” The Pokemon released him, and he took a couple deep breaths. “Breakwater, these are Babbs and Algar. We’re going to take a walk with them and explore the mountain, so keep your eyes out for anything interesting, okay?”

    Blastoise nodded to Evan, nodded at Algar, and threw a wink at Babbs. Evan turned and followed the ranger, not noticing Algar’s brief pause to settle his Pokemon – but which put Algar in perfect position to see the large turtle shoot a tiny spout of water from one cannon, splattering the back of Evan’s raincoat. The trainer sighed but said nothing, and Blastoise took up position behind him, looking pleased with himself.

    Evan turned to Algar after his question. “I’m from a little town in Johto that I’m sure nobody’s heard of. I came to the park once before, had a nice trip through the meadows.” He takes a moment to scan the mountainsides around them before continuing. “This time I wanted to see something more interesting, and see if I can’t find some strong or rare Pokemon to meet. My Lieu- er, my friend suggested if I ever had the chance to find a Drilbur, that I should do whatever I could to catch one. I’ve heard there are some around here.”
