You are Penelope, rookie Pokemon trainer starting her journey in the Delian Region, to challenge the Pantheon (Gym leaders) for the honor of competing in the illustrious Battle Temple to be crowned the next Pokemon Champion.

General Rules:
Dice rolls are best of 3; unless otherwise stated.
Write-ins are encouraged and welcome: suggested actions and dialog especially, so long as they are in the same vein of the winning options. I will do my best to work in such options, though I might make alterations to better fit characterizations.

Previously: After receiving a few gifts from mom, you left to visit Professor Olive and received your first Pokemon, a Cubchoo you named Chilly. Along the way, you had your first battle. met some interesting folks along the way, and met a friendly Audino who healed up Chilly.

As you resumed your way to Pirus City, your first stop on your journey, you sought to find another challenger to battle in hopes of gaining a bit more money before hitting up a PokeMart for some Pokeballs....

You recall Chilly to his Pokeball as you return to the main route. Thanks to Audino, you're looking to get Chilly some more experience in battle and maybe even earn a little cash on the way. There's bound to be a few more lingering trainers along the route for you to battle.

And as luck would have it, you see someone standing on the road side. She seems to be searching through some bushes, when she notices you coming up.

"Hi-ya! How's it going?" She says with a spring in her step. Her wild and stylish hair bounces with each of her exaggerated movements.

"Uh, Hi. Are you alright?" You ask.

She gives a quick nod. "Yeah, great! I was just looking around the bushes to see if there were any berries around these parts. You don't often find them, cause the local Pokemon grab them early, followed by early rising Trainers. Would do that myself but," She points up to her hair. "When you want to look this amazing, you require a full morning."

"By the way, I'm Penelope." You wave.

"Andreanna! Please to meet you." She poses with her arms on her hips. "So, then, I take it you're a trainer right?"

You nod. "Yup. Just got my-"

"Then you know what that means!?" She pirouettes and again poses. "We should have a battle!"

...Not quite how you were going to approach it but hey, you were looking for an opponent right?

"I accept your challenge." You say with a wide smile.

"Great! How many Pokemon do you have?"

"Just one at the moment." You say.

"Ah, a newbie? Very well. Lets see how you handle yourself." She goes to her belt, where she already has 3 Pokeballs. She picks out the one in the center. You retrieve Chilly's Pokeball and the two of you prepare to battle.

"Lets go Chilly!"
"Come out, Nibbles."

The two of you toss out your Pokeballs and your Pokemon take the field.

Your Cubchoo lands on his feet with a joyous smile as small, pink Pokemon lands with a growl and snap of the jaws.

"Aw, Nibbles. Be nice, er, well polite at least. It's time for a battle!" She cheers.

"Snub." The small Pokemon licks his nose and puffs itself up, It seems to be intimidating Chilly. His hits might not strike with as much power.

"Come one, Chilly. We can do this!" You call out, hoping to keep him motivated. Despite the small set back, it appears that Chilly is faster than the Snubbull. So how should you proceed?

As the saying goes, turnabout is fair play.

"Chilly, use Growl!" The small cub's usually relaxed and joyful demeanor disappears as he stares down the tiny pink pooch. He grits his teeth and lets out a snarling growl.

"Nibbles, use Scary Face!" Andreanna calls out.

Snubbull braces himself in a squatting position and scrunches up his face, attempting to come off as intimidating as possible.

Chilly, however, raises his voice louder' giving out a roar that belies his actual size. If you were wondering in the woods and heard that sound, would expect to run into a raging Ursaring, instead of a tiny little furball.

Apparently that sentiment is shared by both Andreanna and Nibbles, as his attempted Scary Face fails and he flinches.

[Nibbles attack was lowered.]

"Uh, Its ok, Nibbles. Just hang in there." She calls out trying to reassure the small dog.

Chilly is looking pretty good and with Nibbles clearly on the back foot. So how are you going to proceed?

With the rhythm of the battle currently in your favor, you give Chilly the go ahead to go on the offense.

"Chilly, Use Powder Snow!"

He gives a nod, taking in a deep breath. He unleashes a small concentrated snow storm at the little dog.

"Nibbles, uses Tackle!"

Andreanna's Pokemon goes charging forward at Cubchoo, his lower fangs glowing. As he moves in, the gale of frost collides with the pink pooch, slowing down his assault. His charge is hindered and slowed, but eventually strikes Chilly. Your little polar cub slides back on his heels, but not nearly as badly as you feared. The little guy is still looking good, though you don't think the same can be said about Snubbull. The small dog is shivering a bit. While he's not frozen, he definitely felt the sting of the cold.

"Wow, for a newbie, you're Pokemon's pretty tough. Come on Nibbles! Lets show her our true power!" Andreanna does a little dance pose before she gives her next order. "Bust out your Charm attack!"

Snubbull starts to shake out of its shivering, preparing to use his next attack. What are you going to do?

"Snubbull"

Andreanna's Pokemon straightens up and softens its expression. Gone is the aggressive snarling face, and replaced with a more playful disposition of a lap dog.

Chilly seems thrown by this move and relaxes his stance.

[Chilly's Attack sharply fell.]

With Chilly's Attack being heavily lowered, you would normally be concerned, but as luck would have it, his only offensive option namely focuses on his Special Attack stat, which hasn't been effected. Still, you make a mental note of Andreanna's strategy for future reference.

"Chilly, don't lose focus! Use Powder Snow again!"

The little Cubchoo blinks and shakes his head. Seems like he was distracted by the shift of tactics from Snubbull. He takes another deep breathe and blows quickly breeze of snow towards the small puppy Pokemon.

Nibbles notices the attack and makes an attempt to move out of the way. While the snow hits its mark, the Snubbull's semi-quick thinking prevents the attack from hitting with the same amount of force as before. Still you're noticing he's moving much slower than earlier.

"Come on, Nibbles. We can turn this around! Don't lose hope!"

"Snub-bull." The dog replies, shaking off the snow from his fur.

If you had to guess by Andreanna's pattern of battling, you'd figure the pint size Pokemon will probably go on the offense this time. It might be a good idea to prepare for that, but on the same note; Nibbles looks like he's in rough shape and another Powder Snow should do it. Which instinct will you go with?

Snubbulls squats and stares at your bear cub. It looks like your instincts were on the money as he appears to be waiting for the attack order.

"Use Bite! Show'em why you're called Nibbles."

The fangs of his under bite grow and give off a faint glow as he sprints towards Chilly.

"Chilly, use Endure!"

Your Cubchoo braces himself for the incoming attack, bringing his arms up to his head, like a boxer. Nibbles lunges forward, leading with his agape mouth. His jaws sink into Chilly's forearm causing him to recoil and wince under the pressure of his attack. Snubbull starts to shake his head back and forth but his grip isn't as solid on Chilly's fur.

"Shake him off Chilly." You call out.

"Keep him in your jaws!" Andreanna follows you, but by the time she finishes her orders, Snubbull's grip loosens too much and he loses his hold on Chilly. Your Cubchoo takes a few steps back from the small Pokemon. While it doesn't seem like the bite had too much of an effect on Chilly, your little bear's starting to breath a bit heavier. At the same time, it would seem Nibbles is in the same boat; maybe even worse so as he too is starting to get winded, but with heavier breathes. Funny enough, Nibble's breathe is visible, probably from getting a mouthful of cold.

What's your next move of action?

>Take the bit out of Nibble's Bite, Use Growl
>Keep on the defense, Use Endure (Warning: repeated uses consecutively may cause the move to fail)

"Chilly, lets cool off Nibbles with one more Powder Snow!"

Chilly takes a deep breathe as he builds up the power for his attack.

"Nibbles use your Tackle attack!" Andreanna calls out.

Nibbles attempts to regain his footing and runs towards your Cubchoo. Chilly, however has been able to maintain his speed advantage. He lets out a small roar with his snowy barrage. The snow catches Nibbles head on, causing the pink Pokemon to spin on his heels. Nibbles eyes start to get spiraled as he's thrown off balance and stumbles backwards.

"Snub-Snub...Bull." Nibbles can no longer keep himself up and falls forward, out cold.

[Nibbles is unable to fight!]
[Penelope and Chilly are the victors]
[Gain 450 Pokebills]

"Oh no. Poor Nibbles." Andreanna says, her hands on her cheeks. She takes out his Pokeball and recalls him.

"Good job, Chilly."

Chilly raises his hands up in victory, with his little nose mucus swinging.

Andreanna approaches you and gives you a handshake. "Wow, nice fight. I have to admit, I didn't expect you to be so good."

"Thanks. You were quite tough." You reply. "Sorry that I interrupted your berry searching."

"Oh, no biggie. I challenged you remember! I was getting frustrated, unable to find any that I figured I'd work some of it off." She wipes her forehead. "Sure enough, you gave me and Nibbles quite the work out."

"So were you planning on sticking around here then?" You ask.

She gives a nod. "Yup. I'm hoping there's something around these parts that the wild Pokemon haven't already snatched up. What about you? Heading for the Pokemon Center in Pirus?"

>Offer to help her search for some berries

"Heading to Pirus City's Pokemon Center sounds good to me." You rub the top of Chilly's head. "How about you little guy?"

Chilly gives a tired but positive affirmation. You take his Pokeball and recall him. "Enjoy your rest."

Andreanna smiles and nods. "Sounds good. I might see you there later. Depending on how long it takes me to find these berries." She stretches. "Though after a battle like that, I might take a much needed break. Oh! One more thing," The girl dives her hand into her bag and rustles around with it for a bit. "How about you give me your number? That way we can battle again."

You take out your Rotom phone and the two of you swap your numbers.

"That way we can battle again in the future!"

"Sure! That sounds fun." You nod. "I hope to have caught another Pokemon by then too."

"Great! I can't wait!" Andreanna does a small hop with a fist pump in the air.

The two of you say your goodbyes and you head towards Pirus City.

Just over an hour later at a steady pace...
The road to Pirus calm and uneventful the rest of the way, a faint breeze keeping the heat of the afternoon sun in check. You catch the outskirts of the town on the horizon; a cobble stone lined road guides you through to its rustic country buildings with a scenic view of the coastline, a fair walks away from the town and to the hilly plateau just to the west of town. The city's older style gets more modernized the deeper you head in. Before long you reach the major streets, teeming with life; with folks going about their days. Looking ahead, it doesn't take long to catch a glimpse of the rooftop of the Pokemon Center, just a ways up the road. Additionally, you take note that there's a Pokemart not too far as well as a few other local hot spots.

Where would you like to go to first?

Getting Chilly healed up is probably for the best, so you make your way over to the Pokemon Center first and foremost. With a gentle chime, the doors slide open and you enter inside. The building is far more spacious inside than it looks like from the outside. That said, its only sparsely occupied; only two or three trainers in addition to the woman in pink and white clothing behind the counter. She gives you a bow as you approach.

"Welcome to the Pokemon Center, I'm Nurse Joy. How can be of assistance?"

"Hi. I'd like to check in my Pokemon for treatment." You hold up Chilly's Pokeball. Nurse Joy brings over a small tray suitable for six Pokeballs and you place yours inside it.

"Don't worry, we'll take good care of your Pokemon." She again bows. "The wait shouldn't be too long if you'd like to have a seat."

"Actually I was meaning to head to the Pokemart. Is it ok to leave my Pokemon here?"

The nurse smiles and nods. "Of course, we make sure to keep all trainers Pokemon safe in our back storage area. Only staff are permitted back there. She takes the tray with Chilly's ball on it and turns to hand it over to a large egg shaped Pokemon.

"Here, Chansey. Please take this to the back for treatment."

"Chansey!" It says, smiling, turning around and heading to the back area.

"Your Pokemon will be ready by the time you return." Nurse Joy smiles and nods.

"Thank you. I'll be back shortly."

You take your leave from the desk and head back towards the entrance. Taking out your Rotomphone, you check your personal funds.

[Current Balance: 650 Pokebills]

Well, thats not too bad. You should be able to pick up more than a few necessities. As you go to put your phone away, you get a video phone call...Hmm? Oh it's Professor Olive.

"Hi! Penelope? Its me." She says with a wide smile; her cheeks a tad flush.

"Oh hello, Professor. Is everything alright?"

"Actually not quite." She gives a sheepish laugh while rubbing the back of her head. "You see, when I gave you your starter Pokemon, I kinda forgot to give you a set of Pokeballs." She hangs her head, attempting to hide her embarrassment. "I've been so caught up in my research that I completely forgot to get those to you and the others."

"Ah, I was just about to go purchase some from the Pirus Pokemart." You admit.

"Wow! You're already at Pirus City?" She says surprised. "Well, you don't waste anytime now. I manage to catch Paris, since he's still in town and only just manage to get a hold of Kalli before she made it too far into the wilderness. If you like, I can message the Pokemart to give you a set of five balls, billed to me of course. I wouldn't want you to have to use too much of your own funds on my mistake."

You smile. "Thats very kind of you. Thanks."

"Hey-hey. No problem. As your resident Professor its my job to be a responsib-oh, uh hold that thought!"

There's a faint sound of something falling over and what sounds like several Pokemon making a racket in the background.

"Professor?"

"Oops. uh, Sorry! I need to take care of-Ah! I've got to go! I'll send that mess-"

With that, the call cuts out. Well, it certainly seems like the Professor Olive has her hands full. On the plus side, you just saved yourself a nice chunk of change. Hmm, that'll give you a chance to pick up some other necessities.

Exiting the Pokemon Center, you head on down the street, straight to the mart.

Upon your arrival, you head inside and straight towards the front desk. Looking around, you don't initially see anyone around, so you ring a small bell on the counter.

"One moment please." You hear someone from the back room.

You scan the store briefly before you finally catch an older gentlemen heading towards you.

"Welcome. How can we help you today?"

"Hi, I'm Penelope. I was wonde-"

"Ah, So your the young lady. I just got off the phone with that Olive gal." He gives a slight chuckle. "Poor woman's got herself in quite the pickle, but she manage to explain the situation for me."

"A Pickle?"

"Eh? Oh about them Pokeballs. Heh, Not all that surprising. That youngster would leave her head on the bus if it weren't attack and a Pokemon went by." He walks over towards a shelf behind the counter and picks up five pokeballs.

"Alright, that should cover it." He places them on the counter in front of you. "Will that be all for you today or were you thinking of pick up any other additional purchases today?"

Hmm, a good question. You could always save your money, but a few items couldn't hurt either. Maybe even a few more Pokeballs, just in case.

What should you do?
