Trading this Lv 1 male helioptile to Electric Blue Eye for 3 rare candies.In another part of the region, Ethan was making another trade, this time he had his baby Charmander and newly acquired Larvitar with him. Unlike his Totodile and Tyrunt, who seemed to get along quite swimmingly, the two Pokémon next to him, couldn't standing looking at each other long enough before a brawl would break out.
"Look you two, you might not admit it now but in the future, believe me, you'll need each other more then you think. It's fine to believe in- and hone your own strengths but it means close to nothing if you can't work together."
To this the two Pokémon, who were on opposite sides of the trainer, peaked their heads forward as they walked and stuck their tongues out to each other before going back to their defiant positions. Crossing their arms and turning their heads to the side.
"Er, at the very least try to get along with this new Pokémon will you? I heard it's very timid and the last thing I need is you two scaring it off with your tough exteriors."
Making way to the Cable Club inside, Ethan met up with someone he considered a long time acquaintance.
"Hey, thanks so much for this brand new Pokémon. I hear it comes from the same region that I received the Tyrunt you traded to me too. The Fossil Type is doing fine by the way, his appetite is a tad difficult to control however...haha." With the pleasantries out of the way, Ethan started the trade and for the small aum he sent over, received a Pokeball with something almost no one had probably seen before in return.
"Thanks! He'll be in great hands!"
Walking outside, in the bitter cold, Ethan walked over to the same Park that he introduced himself to his Fossil Type months before. This time however in a different location, with the warm sun, delighting the cold plants with warmth, and few trees dotting the area and a picnic bench nearby.
"Alright you two, on your best behavior!"
Tossing the ball in the air, the capsule popped open to reveal a yellow lizard with a black flappy ears, it's eyes an adorable shade of blue, as it hid it's face with it's claws.
"Heli-" the reptile shyly said, peaking it's head a little as it had its head facing down, soon met with the Charmander's and Larvitar's intimidating faces, causing the new Pokémon to stumble backwards as it quickly ran to the nearest tree to hide behind.
"Damnit, what did I tell you two? You guys scared it off already."
The two Pokémon looked at each other and then at its trainer before sighing and in their own language, apologized by bowing.
"Apologize accepted, but now what should we do?"
Looking at each other again, both the Larvitar and Charmander came to the same decision and decided, at least for the moment, to call a truce.
Shaking on it, the two Pokémon began to communicate with each other as they came up with a plan.
Larvitar then motioned to Ethan to seat down by a nearby bench, before beginning to follow Charmander's lead as it attempted to get near the cowering Helioptile.
Surprising the yellow lizard, the Charmander waved hello before lightly touching the Kalos Pokémon on the shoulder and running away.
Looking rather confused Helioptile was suddenly startled once again, but this time by the Larvitar that popped up on the other side of the trunk, explaining that the game they were playing was called 'tag' and he was it.
The yellow lizard, didn't quite understand but by hearing the explanation, understood it was his turn to tag someone else. Nervously the Helioptile stretched out its arm and touched the Larvitar on the chest, when he realized they weren't any repercussions, he motioned away slightly as the Ground/Rock Type inched closer to him. Finally getting the idea, the Helioptile ran where the Charmander was with incredible speed.
The Larvitar soon caught to them and tagged the Charmander before the Charmander tagged her back and the game continued.
It was the first time, that the two reptile Pokémon had gotten along since meeting with each other. And as the trainer watched his new Pokémon play alongside them, it looked like the Helioptile was having a ball as well.
After an hour of playing, the Pokémon looked quite tired from all the running around they were doing, it was time to call it a night.
"Well, did everyone enjoy themselves?" The trainer asked, while the three Pokémon looked ready to collapse and embrace sleep to respond. "Well, you all deserve a nap, return you two." Ethan grabbed two Pokeballs from his waist and retrieved his Charmander and Larvitar first, before turning toward his newest member next. "Before I return you inside your Pokeball, Helioptile, I wanted to give you a name. You see, that was the first time those two spent an hour without fighting, I know your a bit on the shy side but because of you, you brought them closer together, so for you I'd really like it if I called you Trix, what do you say?"
"Helioptile!" The yellow lizard said happily before suddenly falling over from exhaustion, Ethan picking him up into his arms in the nick of time, "Trix it is, welcome to the team." He said returning his new Electric Type inside its own Pokeball and making his way home.
OoC: Trading to Rayzen 3 Rare Candies for his Lv.1 Male Helioptile, thanks so much!
