When: Day 73 - Day 87
Where: The islands of Alola.
What: The Carnival arrives at its next touring location, a series of tropical islands inhabited by a species of animal called Pokemon and their trainers!
Warnings: Pokemon is pretty PG-rated.


Alola is broken up into four different islands, with a number of unique points of interest. Boats can easily be rented in order to get between the islands, or you can just pay for the fair of a scheduled trip. If you can prove you have the skills for it, you can also call on a "Ride Pokemon" - that is, either a Charizard or a Lapras that will fly or swim you between locations.

► POPULATION: Though the islands appear very small as an abstraction in the actual games, that doesn't hold over into the actual reality of it. When interacting with the different locations, imagine that they are about as big and spread out as they would be in real life. It's about on the same scale as Hawaii is on earth. Ignore any wikis that say the population of each island is like 200 people, because that's just adding up all the scripted NPCs, and there are realistically more than six houses per town.

► AMENITIES: Even if they aren't overtly listed on island maps, it can be assumed that all towns and cities will have basic amenities - that is, places to eat, place to go to the washroom, places to buy souvenirs, and the other things one would expect in a tourist heavy area. You can also buy malasadas pretty much anywhere.

► POKECENTERS: You'll be able to find a Pokecenter in pretty much every town - a Pokecenter is a public building in which Pokemon Trainers can rest and get their Pokemon healed. Think of it like free international Pokemon healthcare. You can also buy Pokeballs here, as well as potions and other healing items for later use.

► AETHER FOUNDATION: A peace keeping organization that shelters Pokemon from harm and abuse. If you kill/maim any Pokemon or otherwise act violently in public, they will come to try to take you down with their Pokemon. They also are the main force working against Team Skull.


► TRAINER SCHOOL: A full fledged for young, aspiring Pokemon Trainers! Students go here to learn about Pokemon care and battling before setting out on their own journeys. It would be sort of weird for an adult to show up here, like it would for an adult to try to attend an elementary school, but you can probably learn some of the basics just from touring the facility.

► HAU'OLI SHOPPING DISTRICT: The biggest shopping district on Melemele, you can do a lot here, from eating out to getting your hair dyed. A lot of shops are, unsurprisingly, completely Pokemon focused - but there are some that aren't, too. There are also some very nice beach fronts nearby.

► BERRY FIELDS: Berries come in a lot of different types and have different effects when used. Mostly, Pokemon love to eat them, regardless of what type they are. This is a big field of them, most of which are free to take if you catch them when ripe.

► TEN CARAT HILL: The secluded interior of a small mountain, filled with some rare types of rock Pokemon. You have to be able to bypass the left overs of some recent rockslides to get in.

► TRIAL SITE: There is only one trial on this islands, which is the Normal type trial. All you have to do is fight a bunch of Pokemon ferrets, and then fight an even bigger Pokemon ferret that thirsts for your blood. It's not so bad.


► TIDE SONG HOTEL: A big ass hotel near the port - if you want to stay on Alola overnight, this is a pretty good place to go. It isn't too expensive, and is also rather nice.

► DIMENSIONAL RESEARCH LAB: Alola, on occasion, has been the site of various dimensional breaks (haha) in which extraplanar creatures called Ultra Beasts have crossed over. There isn't much information about these beasts, but they are something that are being actively studied. Characters who are nerds might find some of this information interesting.

► HANO GRAND RESORT: The inevitably big, fancy resort that tends to take route in touristy places like this. If you actually pay to spend some time there, you can enjoy all the things you'd expect to find in a fancy resort, except with way more Pokemon. There is also a fancy, secluded beach for resort goers only.

► BATTLE ROYALE DOME: A battle area in which 4 trainers fight each other all at once, with teams of there Pokemon. The trainers here are mostly quite expert, and you need a team of three Pokemon to play, so player characters probably won't be able to participate. However, you can still come to watch, if you like seeing a bunch of colourful monsters slapping each other around.

► PANIOLA RANCH: A large ranch that keeps a lot of Pokemon that resemble earth farm animals. You can leave Pokemon here to stay for a while if you need a break from the strains of trainer life. Quite often, however, your Pokemon will end up getting knocked up and leave you with another egg to care for.

► TRIAL SITES: Brooklet Hill is a lake filled area that contains the Water Trial. You have to fight a bunch of schooling Wishiwashi, and then an even bigger schooling Wishiwashi to win. Wela Volcano Park contains the Fire Trial, where you must climb to the top of the dormant volcano, and spot the difference between a series of ceremonial island dances. Then you gotta fight a team of Marrowaks and a giant Salazzle. The Lush Jungle contains the Grass challenge, in which you have to find a series of rare organic ingredients in order to brew something that will lure out a giant Lurantis.


► MALIE GARDEN: A nice big garden to hang out in and chill. Also, there are Pokemon there... and also, Pokemon battles? There's really no end to it.

► MOUNT HOKULANI OBSERVATORY: Up at the top of the local mountain, you can go see a space observatory. Like most things in Alola, it's like a regular observatory, except with more Pokemon, since some Pokemon just straight up come from space. You can take a bus up here, but you can also hike if you want.

► HAINA DESERT: A shitty desert in the middle of the island. Mostly only good for if you want the kinds of Pokemon that live in shitty deserts.

► ABANDONED THRIFTY MEGAMART: A Megamart, but haunted. Extremely haunted, filled with the kind of ghost Pokemon that would actually kill you. You have to take a bunch of pictures of ghosts on your way through here if you want to beat the Ghost Trial.

► PO TOWN: The ramshackle remains of the town that Team Skull have taken over. It's completely walled off from the rest of the world, and is pretty terrible. No point in going in there unless you're fighting crime, in which case you can expect to get challenged to Pokemon battles by a lot of Team Skull knuckleheads.

► LAKE OF THE MOON: A huge, round temple thing in the middle of nowhere. It's used to praise a legendary Pokemon that existed years ago, but there presently doesn't seem to be anything around except cool architecture.

► TRIAL SITES: The Observatory contains the Electric Challenge, during which you have to fend off various kinds of electric grubs, before eventually taking on a giant Vikavolt. The Abandoned Megamart must first be cleared before challenging the Ghost Trial officially, at which point you will have to defeat a powerful Mimikyu.


► SEAFOLK VILLAGE: A village made of nothing but houseboats and other water fairing homes. It's the only major town on Poni Island.

► ANCIENT RUINS: Most of Poni Island has been reduced to ruins, over time. Not many people live here, relative to the other islands, but there are a lot of abandoned buildings from when they apparently used to.

► VAST PONI CANYONS: Most of the island is comprised of canyons, caves, and valleys filled with particularly strong Pokemon, and also a lot of fight-hungry Pokemon trainers. Most of them will want to fight you as soon as they see you, since they are there mostly to train, but they will back down if you tell them you're not a trainer. Though, at that point they will strongly urge you to go home, because it's too danger for anything other than the strongest trainers.

► ALTAR OF THE SUN: A matching altar to the one found on Ula'ula, except this time dedicated to a legendary Pokemon of the sun. If you play some magic flutes here at the right time then apparently a giant lion might show up, but there's no way to be sure.

► TRIAL SITES: The only Trial here is the Grand Trial, which is a fight against the leader's ground type Pokemon. You may also get lucky and have the Fairy Trial's kahuna deign to fight you, with her fairy types, if she randomly wanders into your path. Both of them are very strong, and are not advised to challenge for new trainers.

Sherlock Holmes | OTA

[personal profile] thevictoriandetective 2017-03-29 08:31 am (UTC)(link)
[Akala Island]

Normally, he'd find a tropical resort place sort of boring. He wasn't necessarily one for unnecessary vacationing. But after what had happened at the Celebration, even Sherlock Holmes could use a break. The sun and sand was doing wonders for his healing injuries, as well as being the absolutely perfect climate for a reptilian man. Being under a glamour was quite admittedly, a big relief, but it was slightly disappointing it had no effect on how he saw himself.

So he spent his time half-exploring, half lying shirtless on a beach with bowls of shave ice piling up behind him, letting the sun warm him and sorting through his mind palace, without a care in the world.

That was, until, something knocked over his impressive pile of paper bowls, the sound of licking catching his attention.

A blue eye shot open, until he lazily rolled over and saw a small, brown animal desperately licking the leftover condensed milk and melted flavored ice in one of the spilled bowls. Oh yes. One of the 'Pokémon,' animals indigenous to this world. Sherlock wasn't all that particularly interested in them, this whole world seemed obsessed about their creatures, but this little fellow looked like a puppy.

Sherlock had an extremely soft spot for dogs, Pokémon or not.

"Hello," he offered a hand. Wondering if the animal could smell his scent and would be frightened off.

Nope. The curious creature came over and sniffed, and promptly began sniffing over his nearby bag. A laugh.

"You're hungry." The detective unwrapped a spam musubi he'd been saving for later and removed the meat, and handed it to the little guy.

He must have been starving, because he scarfed it up in an instant. Sherlock laughed and produced another spam musubi, which was consumed in the same manner.

"Right, well, I don't have any more..."

The dog-creature looked at him with big blue eyes.

Ah, this wasn't fair. Not at all.

"Come on," the detective sighed, getting his things. "We're going to get you a bigger meal."

--and that was that.

Even hours later, as night fell and Sherlock, tried as he might, could not shake the little guy.

"You have to go home, you can't follow me,"
Sherlock said fondly, crouching down to pet him one more time before he left the beach shops. The pup rubbed against his legs, the weird rocks that circled its neck clicking against his scales. "Seriously, I can't take you with me. It's dangerous, where I live..." his voice softened. "I don't want you to get hurt."

Even if Redbeard wasn't a dog, he still carried that scar. Courtesy of childhood trauma.

"Ruff!" barked the little pup. He shook his head, refusing to leave.

The intelligence in these animals was impressive, Sherlock admitted.

But his heart couldn't take getting attached to this animal.

"Go on! Get out of here!" He tried to growl, stomping sand around, but his voice got caught in his throat as the puppy Pokémon shook his head again and stepped forward, rubbing up on his leg and placing his paws on them.


"I can't..." Sherlock bent down, and with a quick look to see no one was watching, hugged the puppy tightly. He licked his face. By now there was no way that the dog-like Pokémon didn't know that he wasn't a human, and yet he loved him anyway?

Yeah. Sherlock's willpower had faded to a 0. The little Rockruff was there to stay.

[Melemele Island]

After hanging out with his new friend for a couple days, he figured out how to use a pokeball on his little Rockruff--silly name, but it was endearing. Sherlock decided on the name Toby, not unlike the Bloodhound he'd so adored back in London. He'd ended up at a bookstore at the Hau'oli shopping district and desperately bought as many wonderful books as he could afford, hauling them back to the Carnival and to his trailer (which took several trips because there was a really good sale, okay?) Toby was not at all bothered by Sherlock's true appearance, which only served to endear him to the detective even more.

Begrudgingly he'd sat down at a cafe in the bookstore and learned all about the creatures in this world and how 'battling' was done, and since he really had not much else better to do, obtained several pokeballs and went out to go catch some and see what these 'battles' were all about. Initially he was appalled at the idea of his precious Toby getting hurt, but the little fellow seemed to quite enjoy the bouts. Sherlock was a boxer and a fencer in school and knew the excitement of such fights.

In short, after many battles, Sherlock Holmes made several children cry with his taunting and arrogance and found himself owning entirely too many ratattas. Which to his horror, the scent of which made him hungry.

[Melemele Trial]

Sherlock wanted to be the very best, like no one ever was. So when he heard about the island trial, he scooped up Toby, gathered up his pokeballs and went off in search for it.

The ferret-things...were odd, and Toby and the fleet of ratattas only just barely won. Apparently he'd have to train more if he wanted to get any more advanced trials, but he hugged his little dog close, the poor thing was exhausted and would have to go to a center.

"You did such a good job," Sherlock patted him on the head. "You're a good boy."

[Patrol at the Carnival]

A couple members of Team Skull were causing trouble at the beginning of the performance week, and Sherlock found them trying to push around some patrons.

"Toby, let's have a little fun, shall we?"


He checked to make sure he had his other pokeballs on his belt before challenging them to a battle. By now Toby was stronger, faster, and had learned more moves. This would be no trouble at all.

[Performance Week]

"H...hey! I'm not a Pokémon!" Sherlock bellowed, as someone threw a pokeball at his head.

This was the third one today, and it was still early.

"Oh my gosh, he can talk!"


Sherlock shot his chameleon-like forked tongue several feet into the air and grabbed the next pokeball that was shot at him.

"I'm keeping that!"

"We...we don't want it back...."


Sherlock pretty much made a circuit of everything there is to see, everywhere on all the islands. When he's not exploring he can be found sunning himself on a beach or jungle area with a Rockruff curled up on his stomach.
otoko: (That wasn't very steadfast of u 8|)

Performance Week

[personal profile] otoko 2017-03-30 02:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Indeed, you do not...

[While it was only really the snubbull seeing the 'arcanine-like' state of Gongenzaka's form outside the Carnival, inside it has been rather clear. And apparently unlike with Sherlock at least, Gongenzaka gives of just the aura of DO NOT MESS to make trainers think twice about pulling out more pokeballs. (Though one appears to consider it, fingering a blue and yellow one)] Now then-I, the man Gongenzaka, suggest that you cease pelting our employees with pokeballs, lest we BOTH escort you from these premises!


thevictoriandetective: (You...)

[personal profile] thevictoriandetective 2017-04-01 01:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[The group of three who had tried to 'capture' the neat lizard pokemon stared, dumbfounded and in wonder at Gongenzaka.]

Whoooooaaa...that one talks too! This must be where you can get really rare Pokemon!

[Sherlock rolls his eyes, as his little Rockruff, Toby, runs next to Suzu-chan, bristling.]

otoko: (That wasn't very steadfast of u 8|)

[personal profile] otoko 2017-04-01 03:39 pm (UTC)(link)

Was a mistake. Gongenzaka leans in very closely, his eyes glowing fiercely.
] Listen to me well, trainer. Do you see any human giving me orders? Giving my partner orders? [he questions lowly.] This is your FINAL CHANCE.

Realize that those of us who speak, are NOT 'POKEMON' and enjoy the remainder of your time here...


[Hang on doesn't the glamor take effect past the gates-]
thevictoriandetective: (It's not a good day.)

[personal profile] thevictoriandetective 2017-04-02 02:59 pm (UTC)(link)
[The trio just stare at Gongenzaka for what seems like an eternity, somehow dumbfounded. The smaller one in the back seems highly suspicious, but the older (brother, probably) pushes the other two back, aware of the danger.]

We'll uh...we'll just be on our way.

[However, their whispers can be heard quite easily even as they slowly back away.]

They're totally Pokemon, probably someone just told them to say that.

[Sherlock rubs his temples, wondering if it would be rude to throw Pokeballs at their heads to see if they liked it.]
Edited 2017-04-02 14:59 (UTC)
otoko: (HRMMNN =3=)

[personal profile] otoko 2017-04-03 04:22 pm (UTC)(link)

...Anyway. Gongenzaka sighs as they leave, looking back to Sherlock.
] Do tell me that we will not be dealing with such matters the entire visit here... [he murmurs with a hope.] ...You...haven't only encountered patrons like this, have you..?
thevictoriandetective: (I know.)

[personal profile] thevictoriandetective 2017-04-04 12:09 pm (UTC)(link)
[They scurry off at top speed.]

Eurgh, fortunately none that aggressive, but I've been called a Pokémon several times today already.

[A sympathetic look.]

How about you? Put up with any of that nonsense?

[personal profile] betheman 2017-04-05 02:50 pm (UTC)(link)
[Gongenzaka sighs, and his snubbull looks between the two patrolmen with seeming confusion over her little face.] Most typically, if they do not cease the insisting this soon, they discover their error when escorted through the gates and shown our glamor....

kingsroads: (maybe we can talk about other things?)

melemele island!

[personal profile] kingsroads 2017-03-30 08:55 pm (UTC)(link)
The problem with Pokemon world is that there are so many books about Pokemon. Strange was fairly certain there wouldn't be any texts of magic in this world to begin with, but there's barely any texts that mention magic in the index to begin with. Just so many things about Pokemon, Pokemon battles, Pokemon breeding, so on and so forth. Still, he likes books. So Strange has ended up purchasing a few history texts more for light reading than any actual study of the Pokemon region.

As he heads towards the exit, Strange pauses, catching Sherlock out of the corner of his eye. He had softened to the man since the masquerade and felt comfortable enough to straight up bother him. Strange walks over towards Sherlock and his...dog? That's a tiny dog. Well, better that than some of the other Pokemon.

"What are you reading?" Don't mind him being pretty nosy as he tries to look over Sherlock's shoulder to see what the book actually is. And, because Strange is wearing a large floppy hat, that means it expertly blocks out most of Sherlock's light.
thevictoriandetective: (We had chips.)

[personal profile] thevictoriandetective 2017-03-31 05:45 am (UTC)(link)
"The Science of Battles," Sherlock squinted as a shadow fell over his pages. It was such an odd shape, could only be from someone with a large hat and--that was Strange's voice.

Sherlock turned around, and snorted. Oh, he was being rude now, wasn't he? Not good. He actually did like Strange very much, especially after all they've been through. Even before, the fact that Strange could take whatever crap he threw at him and dish it right back, made him an all right fellow in his book.

"Sorry--the hat--" Another weak snort as he tried desperately not to laugh. See, this is how much he liked Strange now. He was actively trying to behave. And failing, but trying counts...

"Ruff!" said Toby, getting up from his seated position and dutifully going to sniff at Strange's feet.
Edited 2017-03-31 05:46 (UTC)
kingsroads: (me & my stupid hat)

[personal profile] kingsroads 2017-03-31 01:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Strange just rolls his eyes as Sherlock tries (and fails!) not to laugh. He likes this hat, thank you very much. It's a decent hat, especially since this place is so sunny. "It's a nice hat," he can't help but huff, more like grumpy teenager than the actual adult he is.

As Toby gets up to sniff at Strange's feet, he bends down to try and give the dog a few little scratches on the head. See, this is a good Pokemon. It at least looks like a dog, none of that 'sentient tree' or 'two foot tall butterfly' nonsense. Strange isn't exactly bitter about this world and these creatures but when one of your first encounters involves a thirty-five foot tall Exeggutor, it kind of tends to color your perceptions.

"I like the dog, by the way. Does he have a name?"
thevictoriandetective: (Really now?)

[personal profile] thevictoriandetective 2017-04-01 02:01 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh yes, yes it is. A very nice hat." That may or may not have been 100% sarcasm.

Toby wagged his tail, closing his eyes when he was scratched, and happily tried to lick Strange's hand. He behaved quite like an ordinary dog, and looked like one too, save for the 'necklace' of rocks around the fur on his neck.

"Ruff!" he barked. It was high-pitched, just right for his size.

"Thank you. His name is Toby," Sherlock put down his book, where he was brushing up on rock-types. "Apparently his species is called 'rockruff.' Terribly scientific, I know."
kingsroads: (small cheeky little smile)

[personal profile] kingsroads 2017-04-01 10:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Strange isn't pulling away as Toby licks his hand. Having never really owned a pet, he doesn't really know much about how to deal with dogs. But all dogs liked scratches and pets, right? Hopefully.

He can't help but let out a little laugh at the 'scientific' name. It's a dog with rocks around the ruff of it's neck. It's a Rockruff. Well, at least it should be fairly simple to put a name to a creature if they're all that simple. "Creativity seems to be a lost art in this realm. Apparently there's something called a Zubat? Three guesses as to what it looks like."
thevictoriandetective: (Sardonic)

[personal profile] thevictoriandetective 2017-04-02 01:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Toby nudges his head toward Strange's hands. More pets please.

"Truly," Sherlock rolled his eyes, flipping a page. "It's fascinating, how close some of these animals are to our own, and yet, how different the others are. Bats and dogs, versus...slimes with faces?"

Sherlock wrinkled his snout in disgust and turned the book so that Strange could see the picture of a 'muk', whatever that sentient pile of nonsense that was. "Look at this stupid thing."

"So...have you caught anything yet?" he asked, after a pause. He'd feel only slightly bad if Strange had caught one and made friends with it or something.
kingsroads: (maybe we can talk about other things?)

[personal profile] kingsroads 2017-04-02 07:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Good Lord, does this dog still want pets? Strange just keeps scratching Toby, entirely unaware that if you let the dog dictate how long you'll pet it, you'll be petting the dog forever.

As Sherlock turns the book towards him, Strange peers at the Muk, frowning as well. It's a pile of sludge. "How can it move?" he can't help but mutter under his breath as he questions the logistics of the sentient pile of sludge. Did it scootch forward like a worm or what? Why were Pokemon so weird, that thing made no sense.

But at Sherlock's question, Strange shakes his head. "I haven't. Truth be told, I'm not much of an animal person. I don't know if I'll catch one to begin with." His estate had horses, of course, but horses were something different—any estate worth it's salt had horses, if only to get around the place. At least in Strange's mind, horses didn't really count as pets, certainly not in the same way that dogs or cats did. "Besides, I'm having enough of a good time looking at what everybody else has caught instead."

empty_vessel: Just Hanging Out. (Talking)


[personal profile] empty_vessel 2017-04-08 03:50 am (UTC)(link)
After the cold snap at the Carnival, Jimmy and Sweet Pea are out wandering the beach. Basking in the warmth, picking fights with Sandcastles, and generally enjoying the day. Pokemon battles in general had been a concern at first, until Jimmy had been reassured (at length, and with the tone and phrases generally used in speaking to small children) that no, the Pokemon did not get hurt for real, and that a trip to the Pokecenter would fix everything up again.

So now he and Pea are picking fights with sandcastles along the beach. Pea spots them first, running over to pounce on a sleeping Toby before Jimmy can intervene. ".... Ah... Hey Sherlock. Sorry about that?"
thevictoriandetective: (Pikachu)

[personal profile] thevictoriandetective 2017-04-08 02:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Sherlock had been semi-dozing, semi-perusing through his Mind Palace, and he register's Jimmy's voice and the sound of a now-awake Toby yelping and trying to pounce back on Sweet Pea as a form of revenge. Sand was being thrown up everywhere.

An eye opens lazily (as Sherlock, even back home, could win awards in his laziness) and he gives a wave to Jimmy.

"Ah. He's fine."

Ruffruffruffruffruffruff-- came Toby's protests.
empty_vessel: Adding My Two Cents (Thoughts)

[personal profile] empty_vessel 2017-04-10 01:19 am (UTC)(link)
Toby and Pea end up in an epic game of chase, flipping more sand around as they try to circle around and catch the other's tail.

Jimmy drops down onto the sand beside Sherlock, careful to avoid blocking his sun. "Oh, hey. I almost forgot... The Nurse at the Pokecenter gave me a book.." He digs through his bag, which distracts Pea, since there are treats in the bag, and Toby barrels into her, rolling her around in the sand.

"It's... The Care And Feeding Of Rock Types." He takes it out and shows Sherlock the cover, featuring a number of Pokemon, all appearing to be made out of stone. "I got handed it and if you want to borrow it when I'm done, just let me know."
Edited 2017-04-10 03:30 (UTC)
thevictoriandetective: (My thinks go in here)

[personal profile] thevictoriandetective 2017-04-14 03:14 pm (UTC)(link)
The mischievousness and hilarity of the Rockruffs' commotion was lost to Sherlock as he peered curiously at Jimmy digging through the bag. A book of interest.

"Yeah, of course, that sounds fairly useful." He'd been devouring pokemon books like food. It was ironic, how when he first came to this realm, he hadn't been planning on caring one whit about the creatures. After being 'adopted' by Toby, his interests had changed considerably. Besides, he was all too curious about how ridiculous these creatures were and how on earth did they function, scientifically. The coconut tree thing that walked around was equally baffling and fascinating.
empty_vessel: Today is a Good Day. (Happy)

[personal profile] empty_vessel 2017-04-15 02:52 am (UTC)(link)
"I have the Nurse at the Pokecenter a blank look when she said 'rock type' and then she gave me the book and told me to be sure to read the section on weaknesses." Jimmy watches Pea and Toby year off in pursuit of something, circle wide and splash through the ocean and come running back to the two of them.

"Hey!" Jimmy shouts as Pea comes crashing into him, panting and dripping. "Augh! Hey! Watch the dripping!" He laughs as Pea jumps off him and starts pulling on the messenger bag.

"If it wasn't for the things on their necks, I truly wouldn't have guessed they were 'rock types," Sherlock said, sounding like he was judging the very nature of the world itself. How on earth were dogs connected to rocks? But they were, somehow.

Toby sees Pea pulling on the messenger bag and wants in.

"Oi, stop that," Sherlock said a bit lazily. It would be seen if he was actually any good at training. He was sure he would be fantastic at it, if he had the motivation to.

Sora watched the entire incursion from the sidelines, just about to step in himself before Sherlock did. Sherlock seems to be doing well on his own, but Sora's never one to just sit by. He steps up next to Sherlock, and Sparky jumps out on his own.

"Need any help?"

Sherlock turned to see Sora approaching, and Toby tilts his head and barks a greeting.

"Just about to trounce some troublemakers. If you want in, you're more than welcome to join."

He waves a hand casually to the jeering Team Skull members, who were about to start the battle.

"Awesome! Sounds like fun," Sora grins. "Should be good practice for the trials."

Sparky barks, electricity lighting up its fur.

"You ready?" A smirk. Sherlock clearly liked getting into fights, which probably wasn't a good thing for him or his Rockruff.

Two pokeballs were thrown at them from the Team Skull members. A Litten and a Rattata appeared in a burst of light. Not too difficult, but who knew how experienced they were.

"After you," Sherlock said to Sora, smirking.
