Sarah looked up when she heard the whistle. "Rapier." she sighed, relieved the pokemon had found them before she was following, what she hoped was, the same direction as Regan was going. "Regan fell down a hole and is in some sort of tunnel. She is fine and we are going to follow the same direction and hopefully, we'll meet up soon." Sarah pointed in the direction they were going, they would have to leave the pokemon-made path they were following now but they could return here if needed. "If you fly you might see an irregularity on the surface, like something pushed up some ground. A narrow line. Maybe you can find the end of the tunnel." At least Sarah hoped it would have a clear end and not disappear in a network or tunnels and caves. There had to be a reason Regan decided on that direction. "Let's go find Regan." she said to Rapier.
Sarah dug up a map and marked her location and way she was going. That hole should be reported and the tunnel investigated to see if it had more instable spots. But that wasn't her field, she could only tell others her observations but not do anything about it. She looked at the map and the general direction of the line, if it wouldn't make a turn somewhere, seemed to be heading to a large rock formation that was known to have some cave entrances. "Lets follow Gira." she said to her pokemon. Sarah put Weedle on her shoulder and Saur walked besides her. Gira wasn't the strongest in psychic powers but Abra was. She hoped Gira could at least pickup some vibes or something.
Gira kept going in the direction Sarah had pointed out. She looked back often and was glad when Sarah was starting to follo too. Gira felt sure that Abra and the Ranger were close.
"Great to hear that! Happy you are fine."
she replied. She listened to the trainers talk a bit. "How was the battle? Must have been tough."
That the bigger Absol didn't seem much of a talker didn't stop Mareep from striking up a conversation.
"A pokemon can do that when evolving?" Gabe had never heard of Ninjask and Nincada before, he didn't know anything about Hoenn either, other than that it was one of the regions to battle in. Maybe he should start to travel again one day. But ith some friends this time and not alone.
He was glad Bakuto wanted to go on his shortcut. It was even better when the Absol deemed the short cut worthy of trying out. "Great! You won't regret it!" The tree wasn't that far off luckily.
Mareep glanced at Gabe, she knew what short cut he meant. And technically it could be seen as a short cut. But she was positive Gabe knew what he was doing this time. Humans seemed to learn from mistakes.
Gabe lead them to the tree he mentioned and went left as he had said, the big boulder was a bit away. "What kind of pokemon are you looking for on the rocky area? I saw a Larvitar once. A friend of mine said he saw a Gible. Onix are around here. One big one but that one is very elusive and the island people don't like it getting caught." Gabe was thinking which one he missed. "There are also cute little Shuckle"
Mareep said to Absol. "I love watching them scurrying for berries." @CitrusArms @BladeSS4
