 (!) Beautiful Day for a Hike, Seeking: Fletchling

The sun had just barely risen, the breeze was cool, and the air smelled like dirt, mud, and pine. This was her ideal hiking place, and she was beyond pumped to have found it here in Eden. The mountains were gorgeous, stretching up high into the sky, their bold brown peaks cutting into the deep blue and contrasting beautifully. She had just finished putting her hair up in a tight ponytail and slipping her headband over her forehead. Her backpack that normally carried all of her belongings had been shrunk down to just her first aid kit, extra water bottles, and a packed lunch. She adjusted the straps on her shoulders before taking that first step onto the trails.

What a day! she thought to herself, glad to be out in nature. It had been some time since her mind felt this refreshed, and it felt great. It was early enough in the day that most people would still be asleep in bed, which she had hoped for. No interruptions. Today was about her, getting exercise, and refreshing her mind and body. So up she went, deep into the forest at the foot of the mountain and up the winding trails. The incline wasn't too bad, and the trails seemed to weave in and out, giving her the best of both the forest and the mountainside.

After a good hour or so, she came upon a rather level grassy spot near the trail. It looked like the perfect place to stop and take a break, so she stepped over and took a seat in the grass. She took the backpack off her shoulders and set it to her right, and dug out one of her water bottles. As she opened the cap and began to drink, something rustled in the bushes nearby. "Hm?" she hummed, looking around curiously. It was probably just a bug or something, but she was still interested. She took another sip of water before standing up to take a look.

Angle it down. Then twist the right flank sideways, let gravity do the rest, and bam! The perfect back flip performed by muah! the Fletchling tweeted out loud to herself, butterflies lingering in her tummy as she leveled out from her acrobatics. Her black and white plumage fluttered in the breeze and the orange hue shone brightly in the sunny day, her appearance anything but incognito - which was perfect for her! She could do another perfect flip and show off to her mountain neighbors!

Look at me now! she squawked louder that time. Whether or not anyone was, she attempted another move, that time two black flips. She dove down and then stretched her head upward with the momentum, it helping with her to lean backwards into a flawless flip.

However, keeping it going to get the second one in the row, she lost balance and easier twisted herself out of it, ungracefully and embarrassed. But she had to do it right! She just made himself look like a fool to her peers and audience (which were no one but let her dream).

Time for redemption.

Yet she was impatient and before her first backwards act, she lost all equilibrium and dropped to the bushes. Luckily, they weren't the thorn infested ones but the branches were not comfortable. He quickly fluttered around, feathers sticking awkwardly and her head shaking away any leaves that stuck. She was so preoccupied with the mess she made of herself she totally ignored the trainer nearby.

As she stood to her feet, the bushes rustled some more, and she was convinced whatever it was was definitely bigger than a bug. Dakota set the bottle of water down and stepped towards the bush, catching a glimpse of red and black colors between the branches. Her eyebrows furrowed in confusion. If this was a bug, those colors suggested something dangerous or poisonous. Before she could decide whether or not she wanted to investigate further, a little red, feathered head poked out between the leaves.

It startled her, but only for a split second. The little face peering out of the leaves was freaking adorable. Dakota's heart skipped a beat, she was so excited all of a sudden. "Oh! Aren't you cute??" she spoke softly, trying not to scare it away. She had to move quickly, because her backpack was still sitting in the grass by her water bottle, and that's where her pokéballs were. The little bird began to wiggle free of the branches, so she chose to take advantage of the time she was given and ran back to her supplies.

She practically dove to her bag, frantically reaching into the pocket and grabbed her pokéballs, or rather all two of them. Quickly climbing back to her feet, she had to choose which of her pokémon would work best against this little bird. Her gut feeling was always Samara, she was her strongest and always seemed to get creative in battles. However, her new little man Adrian needed some experience too, she still hasn't quite gotten to know him and his abilities in battle. The bird was just about free from the branches, so she needed to act quickly.

At this moment, she decided to let her new pokémon stretch his legs. She tossed out one of the pokéballs and in a quick flash of light, her Cubone appeared between her and the bird. She smiled, remembering how cute he was. He stretched his little arms and legs, and gripped the bone tightly in his hands. He studied the bird pokémon closely, and let out a low growl. Oh, he is a feisty little thing! she thought, considering she hadn't even ordered him to attack yet. Dakota made a mental note to try to discuss battle etiquette with him after this.

It was when the trainer made the move for her bag, the frantic search through her belongings, that warned the wild Fletchling she wasn't alone. Black eyes snapped to her audience, and if weren't for the release of the Cubone, the bird's face would be hot with embarrassment. Lucky for her the human made no comment about its ever so graceful dive into the bushes and its struggle to get out of them.

But luck ran out when the Cubone made a fast move to attack, not assist the trapped bird. The Fletchling winced at the growls, but as she waited for the defense dropping move, her ability activated and protected her from lowering her already unguarded self. Great! Thank the poke God for her genetics. But that didn't mean she wasn't stuck. She ready had get out of that bush and get back to the skies to avoid being an easy target the whole time.

A wing flapped out and then soon after she was up-right out of the branches, ignoring her preening temptation. Instead, she chirped in the most menacing way she could (which was anything but that) and took to the skies. A triumphing grin formed on her beak and the wild pokemon gloated at the distance it now placed between the ground type foe.

Hah hah! You can't reach me! she instigated. Her ego grew back and the bird even did a few twists and turns to show off her usual agile moves. Maybe that little show will make them think twice for proceeding a fight with a flying type.

She held back a laugh as the cute little bird struggled its way out of the bush. Its feathers were a mess, sticking out every which way, and it just looked ruffled. She smiled instead, and took a few steps forward towards her Cubone. Now the bird was in the air, flapping away in and out of circles. It would be tricky, but as long as Adrian had pretty good aim he should be okay. If not, she still had Samara as a back up. Dakota was confident, as she always was.

"Use your bonemerang!" she ordered, gripping her fists and clenching her teeth. Adrian gave her a quick nod in agreement and spread his little legs to even out his weight. He reached backwards as far as his arm would go, and flung his bone into the air with all of his might. The bone spun in circles as it soared towards the little bird. With the same motion as a boomerang, even if it missed on the way back, there was still a chance it could hit on the way back.

The cubone was so much tinier, so weak looking from above. The fletchling knew it couldn't reach her, being the foe Cubone was not a flying type. He lacked wings and even with his short legs, he couldn't try to reach the bird pokemon with jumps or leaps. They should give up. There was nothing they could do but watch her flip and twist, showboating her advantage.

Until something hard and fast struck her in the air. She squawked in fright more than pain, confused on what had actual;ly reached her from the ground. She looked everywhere below to see what he threw, but she failed to realize the boomerang bone was behind her and that had it strike her a second time, that time, knocking her wing.

The Fletchling felt that painful hit that time and fallen to the mountain side path, dust and debris kicking up as she crashed landed. She chirped weakly and struggled on her feet, her wing hunched awkwardly to indicate it was useless for now. With little health left, she could feel herself dwindling, so she decided to take the offensive with a Flame charge. Fire licked around her and she hopped and glided as fast as she could with one wing, beak ready to rammed into the Cubone.

"Cuuu!" he let out, stoked that his aim had been just about spot on and that his weapon landed two really decent hits. Dakota was proud of him as well, especially since she hadn't had him for very long and in all reality, hasn't really done much training with him. She had adopted him, and it was unsure if he had any training from his previous owner. Adrian and her hadn't quite formed a bond yet, but they were working on it. "Nice hit, Adrian!" she cheered, her fists still clenched.

With a little hop he jumped up to catch the returning bone and landed heavily. He and Dakota watched closely as the little red bird tumbled to the ground, sending dirt and dust into the air. Dakota frowned, feeling bad for the little thing. She didn't want to defeat it, she just wanted to weaken it. Perhaps she needed to make that clear to Adrian before it was too late. She was relieved to see the little bird back on its feet, and to her surprise, firing back an attack.

The bird seemed to light up in flames, or at least it looked like it. Flames were flowing from its beak as it shot forward, charging into Adrian with a pretty good force. Adrian was flung backwards, landing in the dirt a few feet back with little flames searing the ends of his arms, legs, and skull helmet. Smoke bellowed out from under his skull, and he rolled over onto his belly in pain. A low groan escaped him and Dakota fought the urge to run over to him and scoop him up. "You okay buddy?" she asked, concerned.

It took him just a moment, after letting the flames sizzle out, to give her a nod and lift his stocky little self up. Dakota sighed with relief, and then slipped a hand into her pocket to pull out an empty pokéball. She held it tightly in her hand and turned towards the little bird. "Okay little thing, let's make this easy." she said, and tossed the pokéball up in the air and caught it again. Before she could make her move, Adrian was already to his feet and ready to keep fighting.

"Hey!" she yelled at him when he was suddenly between her and the bird. "Adrian, what are you doing?? I'm going to catch it!" she hollered, seeing him lift his bone into the air and prepare to attack again. He was angry, she could tell. There were still little remnants of smoke rising from his body. Maybe she should have been a little more sympathetic, maybe he was truly hurt and was now upset she didn't seem to care. Whatever the reason, she couldn't let him attack the bird again, out of fear he might defeat it.

Before he could swing his bone at the bird, Dakota darted forward and threw her arms around him, scooping him up into her arms. "CUUU!" he let out, furious struggling in her arms. She held him close against her chest, gritting her teeth as his skull and bone grinding uncomfortably against her. "Stop! Adrian, it's okay!! You don't have to fight anymore!" she begged. Perhaps this little guy did have some pent up issues from his previous trainer after all. They'd have to discuss that later, she decided. With her little Cubone trying to wiggle free from her arms, she threw the pokéball into the air and towards the little red bird, and crossed her fingers.

The collsion had knocked both back, but of course, the one immune to the flames had less shock then the poor Cubone. The cries it made was relished by the wobbling Fletching and she would being doing her backflips if her wing was not down for count. Instead the wild fire bird tweeted and hobbled back and forth. Even with an injury, she was strong, fast, unbeatable! Nothing could stop her now!

Except that trainer and it's pokeball. The fletching was almost caught another time in the past, but she was able to free free and flee the battle. Yet that was when she was at hundred percent health. She was surely in the single digits of the health meter of energy! Oh dear! Oh dear! She was at lost on what to do.

Even with the stunt the Cubone had made. He was pissed and was ready to knock the Pokemon down without a second thought. And the girl intervene. Why? The toss of the pokeball towards her small body was the answer. She was too slow and the contraption sucked her into the quiet darkness. She struggled, pecked, blew her fire around until the darn thing had wiggled three times to have it burst open with flames. Oh my Pokemon gods! She had a second chance and boy was she not going to waste it.

The Fletchings hobbles back towards the bushes, her little feathers sticking up and her running rather funny looking as she tried to flee the battle.

To Dakota's disappointment, the little pokéball shook three times suggesting it was going to stick, but the little Fletchling had more fight left in it that she thought, and popped out. The pokéball flew back at Dakota and with the writhing Cubone in her arms, she couldn't reach out to catch it. "Damn it, Adrian, just chill!" she yelled, getting frustrated now. The loud booming sound of her voice must have startled them both, because Adrian froze and the Fletching took off running towards the bushes. "Ugh!" she groaned, and set Cubone down on the ground.

She quickly reached for the returned pokéball and caught sight of the Fletchling again. "Please don't go!" she said, more to herself than the Fletchling. She probably looked like a mess of a trainer who can't control her own pokémon, no wonder the bird was trying to get the hell out of there. Dakota wasn't going to give up, though. The Cubone was still new to her, in her defense she hasn't had the time to train it yet. So she darted forward, following the trail of dust behind the little bird, and aimed another throw. It took a little more force this time because of the distance, but she threw the ball into the air towards the Fletching once more. "Please..." she said, softly. Adrian watched with annoyance in his eyes.

The extent of her injury was showing with each hop towards safety and she was wholly glad the Cubone had distracted the trainer on most of the time it took to fleeing. The Fletching could almost feel the leaves and twigs as she near closer, her pace picking up a little more for the home stretch.

"Please don't go!"

Then she stopped at those words, the heaviness in them even getting the Fletching to turn back at Dakota. The glance was only short lived for that the same ball tapped the bird's head and in the contraption she went. The Fletchling wiggled hard the first time but when about to snap the ball open again, the echoing sadden tone of the trainer rung in her mind. Maybe it was stupid on a wild pokemons part, but the avian pokemon relaxed and settled.

What soon followed was the famous ding of a successful capture. And for those who seen it as a end to their freedom, this Fletchling did not. She had some odd feeling this was not an end, but a new beginning for something better than just back-flips and showing off to her boring neighbors.

wild fletchling was captured!
