Pokemon Research Centre - Scabbard Town Pine shook his head slightly as Zeke hurried off. "Too much hurry. That kid could get in trouble like that," he commented to himself. Watching his assistant head to the doors, he could see a couple of kids at the door, and more arriving. He spun on his heel and headed towards the meeting room. "Nurse? Our new trainers are starting to gather like a pack of hungry Poochyenas." Outside, Kimi reached the doors, giving her sister, still weaving through the crowd, a quick grin before turning to the doors. "Hi there!" she called happily as she skated towards the small gathering group. "I'm Kimi! And the Slowpoke over there is my sister Amber," Kimi continued, pointing towards Amber who had just made it through the crowd, holding her egg carefully, as if terrified it was going to leap out of her arms. She was about to reply to her sisters comments when a roar shook the air.
Stacey was about to respond but was distracted by the sight of the robot. "Wet's dweal wiwth tha' fiwst!" "Don;t sorry me Vipey! Apologetic doesn't suit you," said Ziona, trying to stay out of the robot's reach. "You can study it once its scrap!" she called to Zangoose.
Ziona took in the destruction, letting go of the kids. "This is our best chance! Lets go now," she called, turning to Zangoose. "And yes, a bit more warning before you unleashed your Ultimate Weapon, thank you!"
Stacey paused for a moment, looking at Mark. "Dwon' bwe scwawed! We cwan dwo iwt!" he insited.
“Good work Zeke,” replied Pine, placing his cup of tea down on the desk as he bent down to pick up the Lillipup, followed by the checklist from Zeke. He sat down, stroking the small Pokémon on his lap as his eyes scanned the list.
“Another delay delivering the rejuvenation drive,” sighed the Professor. “A shame, I’m dying to know what that strange fossil is from,” replied Pine taking a sip of tea. He glanced out the large window.
“Big crowed” he muttered to himself as he inspected the group outside. “Always is on these days. Family and friends cheering the new trainers on, local press making a fuss, plus the usual gawkers. Though it is odd to see the crowd arrive BEFORE any of the trainers.”
Outside Research Centre – Scabbard Town
Kimi and Amber were weaving their way through the crowd. Kimi moved stylishly with confidence on her skates, managing to find a path through. Amber on the other hand moved much more slowly, tired out, perspiring a little and red faced from running after her sister. After a few ‘excuse me’s she made her way though, seeing the large garden on front on the centre, several paved paths running through it, and Kimi standing in the middle waiting for her.
“You’ve gotta move faster Sis if we’re gonna travel together. Maybe you should get a pair of skates too?” she laughed, know her sister would never do so.
Amber was too short of breath to reply, instead she just glared. Kimi ignored the glare. “C’mon, let’s get inside.” She turned and skated towards the doors.
“Wait!” called Amber, running forward to try and catch up.
