OOC: Correction, Louis has six Pokemon, not five. Although I can't blame you for the confusion I guess, some haven't been talking as much as the others.
Louis Piere Montoya II
As we move along, and the Adoption Center becomes farther and farther away from view, I begin to think of what I'm going to do. The contest is in a few days, so I have less then a week to train Joule, Kyler, and the Mudkip for it. I hope they can pull off that kind of stuff. Joule is small, Kyler has a bad leg, and from the looks of it, the Mudkip is pretty clumsy, so I may have my work cut out for me.
My attention is drawn off however by the sight of Jerry's Umbreon clinging to his leg. Seeing how the Umbreon looked like a rough and serious Pokemon to me, the sight of him clinging to his master's leg like a scared puppy was a little amusing. Then, Jerry gets into a fight with his Umbreon. It was interesting, considering that I thought the only Eeveelutions that could use telepaphy were Espeons. Since it wasn't any of my buisness, I ignored their argument and looked back at my Pokemon. It was pretty cute that Applejack let Joule ride on her back, but it doesn't surprise me, since Applejack is very kind when you get to know her better. Houdini of course goes to work with talking to the Mudkip, since he hadn't had time to talk to her yet. Rarity looks a little bored; from what I can tell she's really looking forward to the National Coordinators Challenge Cup Contest, or the Quad C for short. I just wonder if HE will be there too...probably not. But if you aren't cautious, then you won't see trouble coming.
Houdini, Louis' Kadabra
Houdini was feeling pretty happy right now, mostly because Louis was happy. The Pokemon he picked were interesting to say the least, but Louis always has his reasons. He was probably as curious about them as Houdini himself was. Joule had openly said many times that she was human, and the other two gave off an odd vibe as well.
As for the trainer named Jerry and his Pokemon, Houdini was indiffrent about them. Jerry did seem to be a respectable person though, and his Umbreon's ability to use telepathy was pretty impressive, considering how hard it is to do if you aren't a Psychic type. Houdini didn't care for matters that don't involve either himself or Louis, so he payed no attention to them, at least at the moment.
Regardless, Houdini had buisness to attend to. As the group moved along, Houdini went by the Mudkip's side and matched her pace so that they were moving at the same speed. "Excuse me, but I do not believe I have heard your name yet. What do you like to be addressed as, mad'am?"
Applejack, Louis' Ponyta
Applejack was loving the freedom of the open streets, although the air didn't feel any fresher; they were in a city after all. Still, Applejack couldn't help but feel happy about being out again. She couldn't imagine actually having to spend more than a couple of hours in that Adoption Center; the thought of being held there just terrified her.
Jerry and his Umbreon were from the looks of it arguing. Applejack wasn't so sure how telepaphy worked, but when she first saw the Umbreon he didn't really come across to her as a Pokemon that can use it. His Archen and the Absol named Sepra from earlier that insulted her name were also talking, and from the looks of it Sepra didn't like the Archen's name either. Boy, that Absol sure is picky. Guess "Archen" isn't much of a nickname for an Archen though, so maybe she's right 'bout that one.
Suddenly, she felt a wierd tingley feeling go up and down her spine. It wasn't enough to jump her, but she could definately feel it. She tried thinking of what that could be when she suddenly remembered that she was carrying an Electric type on her back. She turned her head, just enough to be able to see the small Joltik. From waht she'd heard from Houdini, her name was Joule, which Applejack thought was a pretty fitting name.
"Hey, is that you that's givin' me a bit of a jolt?" She paused for a moment and felt it again. It was actually pretty nice, it reminded her of this massager that Louis bought. One time she managed to convince Louis to rub her back with it, and it felt pretty nice. "You're like a little electric massager, ain't yeh?"
Rarity, Louis' Roserade
Rarity absolutely loathed that Adoption Agency. It was so dirty, and foul, and everything Rarity disliked. She was just happy to be out of there. From the very start she knew she'd probably need to have to get used to the Pokemon Louis was going to adopt from that place, but to her surprise none of them seemed too bad. Firstly, they were all girls; besides Houdini and Louis, Rarity couldn't name a single male, both human or Pokemon, that she didn't find annoying. Second, they overall seemed like they were good canidates. Just by looking at them, you could tell they were special. Rarity just hoped they wouldn't steal any of her spotlight...
Although there were drawbacks too. For example, the Joltik, whom Houdini had confirmed that her name was Joule, was pretty nuts. She thought she was HUMAN, for Arceus' sake! It's understandable though; Rarity could imagine that she'd go crazy too if she had been abused by her trainer and left to wither (Get it? Because she's a plant?) in that Adoption Center.
She could hear Jerry getting mad at his Umbreon, whom apparently had telepathy. She always loved gossip, but unfortunately since the Umbreon was using telepaphy she could only hear half of the conversation.
"You really like to remind of today, don't you? I'm no hero, and I've had to say that for the last 15 years so you'd quit reminding me that I'm not. So WHY are you bringing it up again?!" He looked over to see Joule riding Applejack. Odd, are they talking about Joule? Or maybe Applejack perhaps? She of course had no idea what they were talking about, but she had a feeling him looknig that way was for a reason. "I know what you're trying to say, and I'm telling you that this has nothing to do with that," Jerry said out loud, "I made a mistake, but then I fixed it! There's no way they could've done anything to them!! Isn't that enough?!"
Now that especially had to make Rarity think for a moment. A mistake, that he fixed? And it had something to do with Joule? Perhaps he was her old trainer? Or maybe he caused an accident that made her lose her marbles? Maybe she could ask about it later, maybe Joule knows the man, or maybe she could ask the Umbreon, he sure seemed to know as mcuh as Jerry did.
Rarity didn't want to just hold onto her thoughts, but Houdini was talking to the Mudkip, and Applejack was talking to Joule, saying something stupid about massagers or something. So Rarity decided to get friendly with the cute Vulpix with the bad leg, which she was doing a terrible job at trying to hide. "Have you seen the trainer named Jerry and his Umbreon? What on earth do you think they could be talking about?" Now that Rarity thought about it, she felt that maybe Jerry was adopting in the first place because he felt guilty about something. But what?
(OOC: Wanted to do a bit of character building with this post, so you get to see pretty much the same situation from Louis, and all three of his Pokemon. And I took advantage of certain things, like I used Jerry's conversation to show how each character reacts; How Louis and Houdini completely ignore it, Applejack is more interested in Sepra and Archen's conversation, and Rarity listens to it like it's juicy gossip.)
