    I'm not too sure I'll be able to RP this part due to current time constraints, so I'll just take up slot #37 in a non-ceremonious manner. Hopefully I'll get something nice from this~!

    "Gods, I really don't feel like stepping up there..."

    Alex was most certainly put off by the number of people in the crowds. Having been wrested from the comfort of the Spire by some pompous bird in a silly wreath with a letter, he was invited to some event in New Fizz City, as a guest of honour. He hadn't done much to warrant this, he thought, aside from the Parasect incident and the two wars within Mt. Zephyria. Hell, he was reluctant to leave the warmth to stand around in the chill.

    Watching trainers arrive and stand up on stage, he listened nevertheless to the clearly cardboard speech the mayor delivered, and the awkward speeches hailed by other trainers, and as he listened he realised that he was not in a comfortable position. What had he achieved over the past year? Sure, there was the Springtime incident, but good luck explaining the rebirth of a fallen pokemon to a crowd. The events of the War of the Roses, while entertaining, were more of a test to his patience, though the first foray into the Cloud Garden had paid off, with an evolution on hand. Hearing of other trainers with vastly increased teams made him grumble. His was largely unchanged, aside from a new Litten, a cold-hearted Larvitar and other interesting tidbits. Hell, he lost his hand in that curious case of the Shadow Ledian, and was not keen on discussing that one.

    So it was when his name was eventually called out that he didn't answer the call. Once, twice, thrice he was called, and he never responded, even as the so-called mayor looked in his direction. Sure, there was that raffle thing, but that wasn't worth clambering on stage to deliver some Tauros dung regarding his past year and resolutions. Hell, he just wanted a peaceful day, but no, that stupid bird arrived and woke him up at the crack of dawn.

    Watching Loffley's face falter as a gust of wind picked up, the Machoke holding the bowl could only watch as a ticket fluttered out of the bowl and dived into the crowd, who began to scrabble for it. Alex watched before feeling something brush against him, and looking down spotted a ticket with the number 40 printed upon it. He picked it up, and remained silent, watching the spectacle before him.

    Wake me up for this pointless endeavour, you little git...

    Patches was absolutely loving this day. It was the end of the year and she couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another, surrounded by people. Before she knew it, it was her time to be called up onto the stage, the moment she had looked forward to the most since she loved being the center of attention. She skips up onto the stage, today she didn’t have any of her Pokemon outside of their pokeballs so she was left to her own devices. Once she gets on stage she grabs the mayors microphone and begins to speak.

    “Hello everyone!!! It’s nice to meet you all! My name is Cardia Spade and my favorite color is the rainbow! Now I would like to hear each and every one of your favorite colors as well!” She holds out the microphone to the audience and is met with silence. She doesn’t feel awkward about the lack of response at all and decides to continue talking instead. “My Sylveon Momo has very sensitive and weak paw pads and this one time he was trying to get my Furret Aya to carry him up the stairs but then she couldn’t do it because he was too heavy. Thank you.” She gives a small curtsy, feeling proud of her speech. She could feel that she really got through to the audience.

    The audience was completely silent, some people were even shifting around uncomfortably but she didn’t notice and just skipped on over to the bowl that the Machoke was holding. “Thank you very much, sir!” She says as she reaches out and attempts to grab the entire bowl. The Machoke wasn’t about to let go though so instead it was a moment of her trying to pry the bowl out of his hands. “Oh!! You want to hold it together with me! Wow that’s so adorable!” She stops pulling on the bowl and then just stands there with a smile on her face with both her hands holding onto the bowl around the Machoke’s hands. The Machoke couldn’t handle it anymore and let go with one of his hands so that he could reach into the bowl and pull out a number himself and then he shoved it into Patches’ face. “Oh!” She finally let’s go of the bowl and takes the number being presented to her. “Is this for me? From you? How sweet!” She has all but forgotten about holding the bowl now and slowly wanders off while staring at her paper. “Hmm… The number 3? What a cute gift!”

    Patches received ticket number 3

    The cheering crowd quiets down to hear the words of Fizzytopia’s very best. One after another, the most accomplished Trainers in the land come on stage to share their personal stories, hopes and wishes for the coming year. Leopold Loffley smiles at the resounding success that this gathering has become, like a proud father listening to his children’s graduation speeches. Not even Machoke’s clumsy slip-up ruins his mood, and once every one of the Guests of Honour has addressed the adoring crowd, the Mayor steps forward once again and claims the microphone.

    “Thank you, from the bottom of my heart,” he begins, voice swelling with emotion. “I know the future of this land is in capable hands. Adventurers, fighters, overseers, shopkeepers… Whatever walk of life you choose, I’m certain you will excel and continue to make us proud. And if you all will permit me, I would like to share my own dreams for the coming year.”

    Clearing his throat, Mayor Loffley takes a moment to look at the crowd and the chosen Trainers that have gathered at the Plaza.

    “That 2018 brings many new hope-filled Trainers to our land. That we all continue to contribute to Fizzytopia’s growth. That, when we meet again here in a year’s time, we can look back and be proud of what we’ve all accomplished once more!” he says emphatically. “Let us all make the most of our newfound freedom, and aim for even greater heights – both in our personal goals, and the betterment of this land!”

    Clapping his hands, the Mayor instructs the two Machoke to return to the stage to distribute gifts to every Trainer holding a ticket.

    “Thank you once more for your presence. And you can start working on next year’s speech, because I expect you all to return then! Godspeed, Fizzytopians!”

    Alice had of course moved to the spot designated for her after her own speech, listening to the rest as they were delivered (lips quirking at the few who didn't speak at all - hilarious but awkward). Like the spoiled princess she was, the prospect of returning in a year for more adoration and gifts was perfectly fine by her, and she excitedly awaited whatever prize was given to her. The fact that clumsy Machoke were the ones handling precious goods was slightly questionable, but thankfully all of the eggs were gifted with care. That included her own, and Alice's face lit up. "Oh, thank you!" She expressed brightly. The bag that went with her dress obviously wasn't big enough for it, so she would have to be careful, but Alice's first port of call was to the Hatchery. Alice hadn't had many eggs this year. One she'd found hatching - Nina - and the other one had been stolen (it was funny that she and a bunch of other criminals from the casino were being praised by the Mayor on stage... What he didn't know wouldn't hurt him). Hopefully this one also brought her joy.

    Bia bounds to the stage at the sight of the Machoke handing out gifts. Eagerly displaying her pilfered ticket and widening her teddy-bear eyes as much as she can for the maximum cute effect, she is rewarded as the Machoke whose earlier gaffe worked in her favor gingerly takes the ticket and hands the Stufful her prize with a grin - and was that a little wink? Perhaps it was Bia's imagination... Either way, the Stufful is positively filled with delight, and bounces back to her trainer with her ill-gotten gains - and nearly trips over the bag in her eagerness to show it off. Her trainer takes a look at the tag printed on it with an expression of mild curiosity.

    "Breeder's Bundle, eh... Are you going to open it and see what's inside?" Bia nods emphatically, pulling at the strings with her mouth, revealing two shiny heart scales and a trio of delicious-looking gummis. Bia squeaks with satisfaction at her presents, gingerly placing the heart scales back in the bag to give to her trainer for safekeeping, before greedily gobbling up the gummis. The Stufful licks her lips and shows her approval with a rather unladylike burp.

    "Well? Was it worth breaking some poor sod's leg for that?" Kijo focuses her steely gaze on Bia's. Without hesitation, Bia nods with a big smile. Her trainer covers her mouth with a gloved hand, stifling a chuckle.

    "I suppose it was," she finally remarks, motioning for her Pokemon to follow her out of the Plaza. Who knows? Maybe they'll take the mayor's words to heart, and crash the party next year, too...

    Claiming Breeder's Bundle (2x Heart Scales and 3x Mysterious Gummis). Thanks, Mask~!
