Diana just sat in her living room, staring at 3 Pokeballs in front of her. Barely this morning, she was trying to come up with new ideas to ignite a spark in her life, and here she is, merely a few hours later, with not one, not even two, but three Pokemon in her posession. Alongside the elusive Salamèche, she was also given a Roucool and a Rattata. The man at the Annex was kind enough to present them once more, so she meets the new ones as well. The Roucool was very careful, watching his surroundings, flying aroung and landing either on the ground, or one of their shoulders. The Rattata, however, was another story. She was terrfied out of her mind and couldn't stand still, trying her hardest to hide somewhere, not standing the exposure. No matter how the Annex worker tried to reassure Diana, she still didn't feel right putting the Pokemon through what she had in store for her companions. He did however convinced her to sleep on it, and make a decision on a clear head, which they agreed on.

It was already late afternoon, and it felt like two days have passed by. She reaches out and grabs a ball to throw. From the now-familiar light sphere appeared Salamèche. He looked around him, not expecting his new environment, his eyes shining with the flame on top of his tail. Most people would be nervous about that flame and worried about the potential damage it could cause, but Diana felt safe around him, that he knew how to handle it.
His curiosity sated, he lays on the ground and gives in to his drowsiness, his tale effortlessly laying next to him without touching anything flammable. Diana kept watching him, a warm smile on her face, glad the Pokemon felt safe enough to rest in her place. She decided to let him rest there, and made a mental note to order a Salamèche-safe bed for him to sleep properly in.

Mindful of the Charmander resting in her living room, she makes her way into her bedroom and, after closing the door behind her, calls Patrick to update him on the day’s events. He was so excited, not only about hearing about her officially becoming a Trainer, but also when she told him about choosing the neglected Charmander. He had many sad stories about Pokemon that nobody wanted, that just made Diana even happier about her unplanned choice. She proceeded to thank him for his advice and recommendations, and promised to call him when she makes her way to his city.
She has to make other promises, like taking pictures of her Pokemon, keeping him up-to-date with her progress and calling him if she ever needed assistance or guidance, while biting back her smile after each one. She was glad it was a voice call, she didn’t need him to know she wasn’t immune to his charms. As intense as their chemistry is, he’s hundreds of miles away and indulging the connection wouldn’t do them any good. She keeps her tone neutral and brings up mutual friends and acquaintances to catch up on the latest news. They chat for a few more minutes and say goodbye to each other.

She walks to her living room, wanting to check on her new salamander companion. She takes a moment to look at the sleeping shape next to the window, his flame barely bigger than a candle flame, resting on the floor next to his chest. Blaze… That would be a good name…
She takes a seat back on the couch and grabs her computer to put it on her lap. She fires up a browser and, for the next hour, dives into tens and tens of forums specializing all sorts of activities, careers or skills related to Pokemon. Three websites caught her websites.

The first catered to people who couldn’t take care of their Pokemon anymore, for one reason or another, and wanted to donate their creatures. A Fletchling caught her interest. His owner, Elvis, wanted to focus on different areas of his life, and wanted his robin to find a loving home, requesting nothing in return. She send him a message, asking shyly if his offer was still standing, unsure if she was doing things correctly, and briefly describes her situation. A few minutes later, as she was browsing all the available Pokemon on the website, she received a reply. The message was kind, welcoming her into the grand adventure and confirming the availability of his Fletchling. He even offered to include a Fly HM, an object Diana thought she wouldn’t get before at least a year, along with a detailed description of the Pokemon and what skills he was taught.

The great thing about Pokemon (and Pokeballs) is that they can easily be transferred, thanks to the tech advancements in recent years. Trainers and Coordinators could easily exchange, transfer or buy/sell Pokemon instantly. All you need to do is go to a Pokemon Center or a place with a specialized computer to receive or send your Pokemon.

They quickly exchanged information, and agreed for the transfer to occur in the next 24 hours.

The second website Diana was interested in was an Pokemon auction website. People could put their Pokemon to be auctioned, and people from all around the world could bid on them. Initially not interested, she noticed a Clawitzer and decided to check it out. Not getting the Squirtle she was planning on getting at first, she saw an opportunity to have a Water Pokemon, especially when she saw that it learned Surf, a vital skill that would allow her to travel on water.

Diana couldn’t believe her luck. In one browsing session, she was able to find two Pokemon with rare abilities that would sharply speed things through and make her adventure easier. All she had to do was get the Pokemon. At first, she thought it would be a piece of cake. The bid has been open for several days and no one showed an interest, not even after the owner, Sakae, lowered the opening bid. But, the moment she sent her post, another person joined with a higher amount. After a couple of bids back-and-forth, Diana asked herself whether it was worth it. Anything related to Pokemon, whether it’s the Pokemons themselves, objects, healing products or skill machines, used the same currency : Pokédollars (pk$). Each new Trainer, after activating their account on their smartphone, gets a specific amount to help them get started, an amount that gets replenished every once in a while at slow but steady pace.

The bidding was already reaching 1k and Diana didn’t know if it was worth it to spend such a big portion of her funds on one Pokemon, but she didn’t know if she would find an opportunity like this again. Nervous, she makes the decision and bids a (much) higher amount on the Clawitzer. Surprisingly, her opponent doesn’t react. She doesn’t know if they thought it wasn’t worth it, or if they were intimidated by her latest bid but, either way, she was grateful. The owner sent her a final message confirming the shipping as soon as she would get the payment, which Diana instantly did.

The 3rd website was a simple networking site. After a quick registration, it gives all Trainers and Coordinators close by (or at a specific location) and allows them to connect if they wish to do so. Upon exploring the website, you realize you can connect with others to help each other improve most Pokemon-related skills, share your passion and/or enthusiasm about different aspects of life alongside Pokemon, share tips about where to find specific Pokemon people might want to watch or, the most popular reason, coordinating Pokemon battles.
Barely 30 minutes after completing her profile (under the alias Fides), Diana already had around 20 messages from strangers, approaching her for different purposes. Some were just plain inappropriate, a nuisance she was familiar with by now as it happens on all social websites/services, but others were very promising. She chatted for a while and got to know some of them, pleasantly surprised to learn that they came from all kinds of places, Kantô and beyond. The conversations were very pleasant and they were all happy to learn of her quick progress as a Trainer. She even got some tips on various things, such as knowing how to filter users on the website, tips about managing her team or even how to pull off Triple Battles, something she was very nervous about. One user in particular, going by the alias PuppyEyes778, turned out to be in Bourg Palette as well and after a few exchanged messages, even suggested a friendly battle in the near future. Excited but nervous, Diana chose to respond with a “maybe” as well as a promise to get back to him if she decides to take him up on his offer.
As she was interacting with her new virtual pen pals, the fiery salamander was slowly waking up, turning his head to his new Trainer. Noticing movement on her peripheral vision, she turns to lock eyes with the Pokemon.

- Hello Blaze. Feeling better ?

Blaze definitely looked better. His movements had more energy to them, and his expressions betrayed curiosity towards his surroundings. Setting back her laptop on the table, she got up and walked around to get close to him. As she stood in front of him, she crouched down and ran her hand on his head. Instantly, the Pokemon leaned onto the comforting hand and responded in adorable “Char!” sounds, making Diana chuckle. After a long moment, she thought of giving him a tour of sorts of the apartment, to get him used to it. You could easily notice he was pleased following Diana around as she went from one room to the other, telling him what every room was. Every room they stepped in, he would walk around, as if he was a client, interesting in renting the place, inspecting every little detail.
The tour finished, she felt her stomach rumble. Looking at the clock, she weighed her options and decided she didn’t feel like cooking. She grabbed her phone and called the local pizza joint around the corner and made her order. Being a regular there, she knew it would take around 20mn before she had to go down and get it. Despite them having delivery people ready to bring orders to her doorstep, she prefers to go get it herself, as it’s barely a few feet away from her building.
She remembers her open chat windows, and grabs her computer to resume the conversations. A few minutes later, she wished everyone good night and shut down everything. The rest of her evening was pretty relaxed and she didn’t mind at all, especially with her new company.
