($200) Lv. 01 (M) Hippopotas
It seemed to be almost a rite of passage for new Trainers in Fizzytopia to at least check out the Adoption Center and see if any of the Pokémon caught their attention. And for one Maribel Masters, this was no exception. With her Bagon standing stubbornly on her shoulder, Maribel entered the facility, regarding the various Pokémon with interest-

"POTAS!"

Maribel stopped where she was; something had just sneezed, blasting her outfit with enough Sand to almost constitute an Attack of some sort. She turned to look, seeing a light brown creature looking up at her sheepishly. Nothing was said as Maribel brushed sand off her clothes.

"Hippo..." the Pokémon chuckled weakly.

Maribel gave a small smile. "It's alright," she assured the Pokémon. "I know you didn't mean to do that. Let's see what you are," she added, producing her Rotom Phone.

"Hippopotas, the Hippo Pokémon. A Ground-type," said the Rotom Phone. "It spouts sand from its nose to get it out of its body. It's known for traveling through sand as easily as walking, sweating sand instead of perspiration, and having a ridiculous name that stupid people find hard to pronounce."

Maribel rolled her eyes, electing to not comment as she stuffed the Rotom Phone back in her bag, then turned her attention back to Hippopotas. "Maybe what you need is to see the world instead of being cooped up in here," she stated. "How would you like to come with me?"

"Hippo? HIPPO!" Hippopotas cheered happily. Maribel smiled, and produced a Poké Ball from her bag. She tapped Hippopotas's huge nose with it, and caught it almost immediately.

A chime from the generally snarky device prompted Maribel to pull out her Rotom Phone. "Hippopotas has been registered to your Pokédex!" it exclaimed.

Maribel smiled at the ball in her hand. "Welcome to the team, Hippopotas," she said, before heading off to the counter, to pay for her newest Pokémon.


OOC: Adopting the male Hippopotas. No nickname, declaring his Ability to be Sand Force, and putting him in Poké Ball #4 of 5. Payment: 200

Yet again Cy wandered. Mostly the same this time, but he knew where he was going, so there was no need to look around too much. As he stopped at the Bug area, noting the three Pokemon waiting within, a veritable hive crawled from him. Dwebble dropped from a pocket, Wurmple slithered down from his hair, one Paras materialized from the dark, seeming to melt out of Cy's shadow, and the other uncurled herself from a nesting spot somewhere up on of his sleeves. They gathered and inspected the potential newcomers. Well, Wurmple did. Dwebble and one of the Paras were dozing, and the other Paras slunk about spitting threats at the unfamiliar Bugs, so Wurmple was the only one dutifully conversing with the wild Bugs. Cy scanned the three Pokemon that might become a new partner. The other Dwebble seemed irritable and withdrawn, pretending resolutely to be a rock no matter what Wurmple tried. The grumpy Duratn was still there, eyeing them all warily while chewing on something mysterious. The Nincada seemed to be focused on practicing some kind of combination of Sand Attack and Harden that involved a miniature sand tornado. Paras scuttled over to it and spat something that must have been a challenge, because with a flash Paras lunged forward with a Scratch. The Nincada caught it in one Hardened forearm, yanked Paras back and spun in the same motion, and punched Paras squarely in both mushrooms. Paras gave a helllish shriek that dwindled into a squeak, then passed out. Cy knelt as Wurmple scampered over. Wurmple looked over the unconscious Paras, poked a mushroom with his horn, then nodded at Cy. "Not hurt?" Cy confirmed. He looked at his humbled Paras, who was already waking up. "Well, it's your own fault. Hey, Nincada, come over here a sec. That was pretty cool." Nincada turned to look up at the human defiantly, as if to say, I could take you down too. Wurmple began talking to her as Cy made sure that Paras wasn't hurt and recalled him. Wurmple turned to look Cy in the eye, then nodded deliberately. Cy grinned. "Yeah, I like this one too."

TL;DR: Picking up this little warrior, declaring her ability to be Compound Eyes, and putting her in a Luxury Ball. $200.

($200) Lv. 01 (F) Durant
Cy strolled the familiar halls of the Adoption Center, noting how empty it looked. Only about a dozen Pokemon were left in the cozy place. Cy stopped in front of the Bug-Type area, where one Pokemon remained. His own Bug Pokemon were hidden all over his jacket, staring down at their former home. Paras and Nincada looked furious to see it again, Dwebble didn't seem to care, and Wurmple simply observed it calmly. Cy noted the other Dwebble was gone, or at least well-hidden. He stood in silence in front of the small area for a while before speaking. "So," he said quietly. "No introductions needed, right? You've seen me here before." The Durant glanced at Cy with fiery eyes and snapped steel jaws together with a harsh CLANG. Cy shrugged. "Not one for conversation, I suppose." He took his hand out of his jacket pocket, revealing a Red Cyber Ball. "You've been here a while. Too long, if you ask me. If you want a change of scenery, you could come with us." He tossed the Cyber Ball into the Bug area, where it rolled to a stop in front of the Durant. "Heck, you've met most of us already. Now, it's your turn." The Durant turned and gave the Cyber Ball a death glare, then looked up to stare down Cy and his Pokemon. Nincada and Dwebble waved at the other Bug, Paras hissed in what probably counted as welcoming for it, and Wurmple simply nodded. The Durant's eyes narrowed, and the Cyber Ball got another murderous glare. This one lasted several seconds, but finally the Durant snapped her jaws again and jabbed the Cyber Ball's button with a clawed foreleg. The Cyber Ball clacked open and sucked in the Durant with a plume of blue energy. It wobbled thrice, and with a ping its red stripes flashed.

TL;DR: Sincerely apologize for not taking her home sooner. This Durant will be going in a Cyber Ball, with the Ability Hustle. $200.
