    You're a girl who knows what she wants -- at least, that seems to be the case whenever you come here, to the Adoption Center. On today's menu: fish. Did we say menu? Not menu. Don't eat the fish. Fish are friends, not food. (Unless you ask Tate.) You greet Goldeen hopefully, promising him lots of friends, or even no friends, depending on his preferences -- whatever he wants, really. On the other side of the glass, he stares at you, fins billowing like a cape in the water. You might have some competition today for 'Most On-Point Look' -- and the fish doesn't even have to try.

    Goldeen don't prize themselves on their fins, though. That's just a weird human obsession. No, Goldeen favor their horns. Thick as your dainty wrist and hard as steel, with a point like a hypodermic needle, boy's looking real good by Goldeen standards, too... and he's sick of being in this aquarium. Like a prince, his fins sweeping around him gloriously, he turns and swims as far away from you as he can, before looping around and speeding towards the glass face. There's a sickening crunch when his horn breaks through the side of the aquarium, cracks spiderwebbing across the surface before the structural integrity fails, 200 gallons of water bursting forth in a sudden deluge and flooding the room. You don't escape a drop, looking like a drowned Ratatta as your new friend goes gliding gendly across the hard wood floor on about two inches of water. He looks very pleased with himself. The noise of exploding glass and running water has attracted a pair of interns, both of them redheaded but otherwise very different looking. The taller one -- a woman probably in her 40s, wearing glasses -- cries out in frustration.

    "Who put the Goldeen in the aquarium?!" She wails, sounding devastated. If you had to hazard a guess, she's probably the one who's going to have to clean this mess up. The other woman -- a bit younger, and significantly more attractive -- shrugs.

    "I think they said something about treating the algae bloom in the pond?" She offers, utterly nonplussed. Meanwhile, your new friend has flopped his way towards the door, evidently making an escape from this shit. The older woman chases after him, sloshing through the water, and snatches him up, but a moment later drops him again with a scream, when the Goldeen bites her.

    "Stupid fish-!" She yells, kicking at the Goldeen in a less than sincere attempt at striking him -- she's frustrated, not a monster. Goldeen flops away, fins flapping like a bird, to hide behind your ankles, water dripping onto him from your body like a gentle rain. He sticks his tongue out at the woman. Who knew fish could even do that? The younger woman approaches you, patting your soggy shoulder.

    "Congrats," she informs. "You've just adopted a Goldeen."

    There's no such thing as 'you break it, you buy it' in charity work, but evidently there is such a thing as 'you break it, you adopt it.' Not that this was really your fault. Not that that sways the younger woman, who guides her seething older friend to the front counter to fetch your paper work. Behind you, the Goldeen has flopped his way to the door, waiting impatiently for you to open it so he can get the hell out of here. Liberty, they say, is the rights of all men. Evidently, he thinks it's the right of all fish, too. As you look between the interns putting together a clipboard, and your new companion, you get a strong inkling that this one is going to prove difficult. Good luck with that.


    Adoption of Lv. 01 (M) Goldeen confirmed.

    See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil!
    They came from somewhere weird, Tate knew that much. How weird was weird? It was hard to say. Everything was weird around these parts. Still, these three were especially unusual. They had arrived late at night -- or very early in the morning, depending on your perspective -- and forced the manager of the adoption center out of bed and into the rain to handle their intake. Arriving soaked to the bone and clutching a rainbow-patterned umbrella, Tate found an equally drenched warden from the nearby park standing on the stoop with three little red balls seated -- perfectly still -- at her feet. Were it not for the occasional blinking of their eyes, it might not even be apparent that they were alive. A quick reference of Tate's Pokédex summed them up sucinctly -- Darumaka, the Zen Charm Pokémon. They were Fire-types, but as the rain continued to pour down, they seemed placid and utterly unaffected by the chilly water. It wasn't as though Fire-type Pokémon dropped dead the moment they got wet or anything, but one would expect them to be at least unhappy about it. They were not, or rather, if they were there was absolutely no indication of it. The just sat there, perfectly still, and stared at nothing in particular, finally moving only when Tate unlocked the door to the center. One by one they stood up and walked in a single-file row into the building, without being prompted. Tate looked at the warden, and the warden shrugged. By the time the pair of humans walked inside to complete the intake forms, the three Darumaka were once again seated, perfectly round and perfectly motionless, in a tidy row on the floor.

    Drop-off of the following Pokémon has been approved:
    Lv. 11 (M) Darumaka w/ Crossfire, Sleep Talk, & Take Down
    Lv. 11 (M) Darumaka w/ Heat Wave, Metronome, Sucker Punch, Submission, & Zen Headbutt
    Lv. 11 (M) Darumaka w/ Sucker Punch

    The loneliest people in the whole wide world are the ones you're never going to see again!
    They seemed so familiar to Tate; twelve sad faces that made Tate's heart pang. What happened? Where was their trainer? Why were they brought here? Surely someone loved them at some point, but wherever that person was, they weren't here now, and the Pokémon knew it, and the staff could feel their trepidation and their heartbreak as one by one they were processed for intake. Now and then, one would cast a plaintive glance at one of the others. They had come here together, but they'd almost certainly leave here seperately, and the odds were good that they'd never see each other again. What sort of goodbyes would these be? The Kangashkan and the Vullaby seemed the most agitated; the latter was small and easy to subdue, but the former was much larger and much more dangerous. Several interns stood around her in a cautious circle as she and the baby in her pouch both calling out in a loud and mournful bellow for someone who had let them go. She was only subdued after having exhausted herself, crying and thrashing about. The emotional strain of processing the batch was even greater than the physical exertion, and at the end of it all, everyone involved was emotionally drained and physically exhausted. Tate seemed especially affected, the wellbeing of these Pokémon feeling almost like a matter of personal responsibility. Nothing could be done to change whatever events had brought them here, but they could at least be given the best chance at a new future, with the help of the adoption center.

    Dropping off the following Pokémon from the Reset Documentation Thread:
    Lv. 01 (F) ✨ Dunsparce
    Lv. 01 (F) Kangaskhan

    "GET THE FUCK BACK HERE, YOU LITTLE SHIT!"

    These were the words what greeted the ears of the surely startled staff of the Adoption Center as Gavin Golurkson raced inside, in hot pursuit of a mischievous Aipom who was proving quite adept at continually dodging his Nest Ball's recall beam. The Aipom jumped around, laughing as his Trainer got progressively angrier, and then as he landed on a cage, decided to open it up.

    Gavin opened his mouth to scold (and swear at) Aipom for this, but stopped as he saw what was flying out of the cage. He'd seen Dunsparce before back in Orre, but those had blue on its body. This one had more of a light red, almost a pink.

    A quick glance at his Poké Radar confirmed Gavin's suspicions- this Dunsparce was Shiny. A Shiny up for adoption! Well, that was music to Gavin's ears. First things first, though. "OK, you- back in the ball!" Gavin declared, suddenly aiming the Nest Ball once more. And this time, his aim was true, and Aipom was withdrawn into the spherical confines of the Nest Ball. "And as for you," he added, wheeling around to face the Normal-type, who was a bit bewildered by her sudden freedom, and the general chaos what preceded it. "You're coming with me," he grinned. Not an ominous grin by any means, but a grin of genuine excitement, a grin that could only mean one thing when plastered to the face of a Shiny hunter. A grin that stated that a Shiny was about to be his.

    "Sparce..." Dunsparce gave a quiet hiss, regarding Gavin curiously. He was certainly loud, but he seemed OK enough...

    Gavin held a Quick Ball before him. "Dunsparce!" he declared, bringing his arm back. "You shine for me now!" And with that, he hurled the blue and yellow sphere forward. "Go, Quick Ball!" And in an increment of time consistent with the ball's name, Dunsparce was caught. Gavin grinned as he scooped up the sphere, though as he looked around, remembered where he was, and headed over to the counter to pay for his new Dunsparce. He supposed Aipom did him a favor this time. A mere coincidence, or intentional...?

    You poor things. Waiting out here in the cold. Wasn't there another one of you?
    Starting with the adoption of the Sawk. I'll figure out an introduction post for them later.

    The $200 fee for the Sawk
