Amelia sighed, getting a little frustrated at this point. It would seem Palpitoad was not enemies with any of the pokemon listed to live on this Route in her pokedex. That didn't mean it didn't have enemies though. It was possible that some pokemon that wasn't in the pokedex but that lived on the route might have taken it. But it still seemed more likely that one of the trainers in front of her had taken it.Maybe I've ruled Eric out too early? Annica admitted that she caused the earthquake at least and she said she lost the nerve to take it with Leila nearby
She thought to herself, trying to think of where to go from here.
Sighing, she turned to her pokemon."Driffloon, can you go scout around a bit? See if there are any other pokemon or trainers nearby. And while you're at it keep an eye out for something that looks like this.
" She said before reaching down and taking the Fire Stone from Leila's belongings. "Except it'll be blue and seem a bit like solid water. And please be careful. I don't want you getting hurt. If you encounter anything hostile, come back here if you don't think you can handle it.
!" The Ghost-Flying type said happily before floating off to search the area.
Returning the Fire Stone to it's place, Amelia sighed before turning back to her suspects.
"We're really getting nowhere right now. Leila, your Barboach... can it possible search the water the earth underneath it for the Water Stone, incase it got buried somehow? Since you caused the Earthquake, I think it's the least you can do." She said.
Meanwhile, Pumpkaboo and Phantump, growing bored and curious of their surroundings, began floating about and poking into things that were around the campsite, wether it be bushes, nests in tree branches, or even the other trainers bags. They were simply looking to entertain themselves. Maybe find something interesting.
