Shiny Pikachu ■
Also known as Serenity, this sweetheart Pikachu showed up as an emergency at the Sanctuary. A passerby had discovered her unconscious laying in the middle of a road, and rushed her in. Aria worked on her personally, and despite all of her medical knowledge the illness keeping her out of consciousness was unlike any other she had seen. It was a rare illness and Aria ended up having to mix up medications and trial and error until she found the right combination. It was a long road to recovery, but Serena did finally wake up. With Arashi's help, they attempted to uncover what had happened but Serena didn't remember a thing. It was as if she was born again, and Aria was the first thing she saw when she opened her eyes. She has stayed at the Sanctuary ever since. In fact, she has made herself quite at home, and has even taken a liking to Arashi. The two have become quite the pair, and Aria has seen a real improvement in Arashi's attitude since.

Kyra and Kiara came together as a pair of sisters that were used as breeding tools at a breeding center in Eden. Aria took them in, and has had her hands full since. They were quite the pair, constantly getting into trouble despite Kyra trying to be the golden child. Kyra is sweet and gentle, likes to cuddle, and loves her sister no matter how much she gets picked on by her. She's like a very chill cat that's always purring and grooming herself, minding her own business.

Kyra and Kiara came together as a pair of sisters that were used as breeding tools at a breeding center in Eden. Aria heard they needed a home and couldn't resist, although if you had asked her on that day she'd say she regretted it. Kiara was her most worst behaved pokémon yet. She was the bully sister, endlessly taunting and riling up her sister and trying to get her into trouble. Kiara was often picking on her, pushing her into mud puddles, knocking things over, and causing a scene. She was like a very, very bad cat. Until she evolved. It happened shortly after Aria opened the sanctuary and several sick patients were hospitalized. After she evolved into Espeon, Kiara changed. She became calm, quiet, docile, and sensitive. She hangs out in the hospital now and keeps an eye on all the patients, the critical ones in particular. She has a gift, and can sense things Aria can't. Often times Kiara will sense danger or a drop in a patient's condition and warn Aria before it happens. And when she's not sensing the future, she's comforting the patients by laying near them or using her psychic powers. She's quite the mystery, but Aria sure doesn't regret adopting her now.

Aria came across Mudkip in Mangrove Marsh, the little guy was completely tangled in seaweed, crawling across the dirt the best he could with his legs intertwined. Luckily for him, Aria had come along and once she saw him, she rushed in to help get him untangled and cut the seaweed. He was so taken aback by her kindness he followed her, watched her and how he interacted with her pokémon. Her pokémon looked so happy and well taken care of, he couldn't help but be curious about the whole thing. He popped up before she left the marshes and she gladly took him in. He's young, full of energy, loyal, and playful.

Ashlyn is a young Deerling who hatched out of an egg that Aria found in the woods during her travels. Aria took in the egg, keeping it warm and safe until it hatched, with every intention of letting the baby go once it did. However, the little Deerling wanted nothing to do with the outside world, and attached herself immediately to Aria's side. She's been there ever since. She's a shy, quiet little thing but is very polite and minds her manners.

Sap Sipper ■
Aria came across this cute little goat in the Gingko Mountains, while out on a hike. He had fallen and injured his leg, and after a little coaxing with some medication-infused berries, he allowed her to clean and bandage his leg. Despite having offered to take care of him, he hopped away feeling good as new to rejoin his family. However, they were no longer waiting for him, so he came back to her and joined her team. He's a fun, curious little show-off that likes to hop up and down on just about everything. If he can climb it, he will.

Aria adopted this cute little Mareep from a breeder. She is brand new to the farm, and Aria is still getting to know her. She's a little shy, and tends to keep to herself unless she's out in the fields grazing. She follows Argi around a lot, but Argi doesn't seem to notice. Aria keeps hoping she'll make a friend on the farm and not be so lonely.

Water Absorb ■
This beautiful sea creature was not only beached on the shores of Hibiscus Beach, but had her head stuck in a chip bag. Aria and Arashi came upon her and helped free her. She loves food, clearly. She's also very sweet and gentle. She's a touch of a scaredy-cat, but will fight if she's asked to. She's one of those pokémon that knows she powerful and can handle herself but doesn't like to brag or taunt. She also helps Aria out at the Sanctuary with hydrotherapy for some of the patients.

Surprisingly, for a squirrel-type pokémon, Nova is pretty chill. She enjoys sitting on shoulders and hats while eating nuts and berries. Aside from little chirps and clicking of her teeth, she barely makes any noise and prefers to stay in the background unnoticed. It's easier to sneak into traveler's bags that way and steal their food. However, she occasionally gets a burst of energy that sends her soaring from shoulder to shoulder or up into the tree branches. She likes to zoom around a room at light speed. And when she's done, she'll apologize for anything she knocked over or spilled, but she doesn't really mean it. Aria took her in at the rescue and they've been buddies ever since.

Quick Feet ■
This cute little Poochyena was found during the messy mudslide in the Gingko Mountains. He was covered in mud and had hypothermia, and Aria helped get him cleaned and warmed back up. In the chaos that followed at the nearby Pokémon Center, its original owner (if it had one) was never found. He is a shy little pup with a playful attitude, and gets along with just about any pokémon that will play with him. He is often getting himself into trouble, but it's unintentional. He really just likes to play.

Flash Fire ■
Aria stumbled upon this little fox while out on a walk in Hinoki Village. The poor thing had fallen prey to a poachers trap, and its paw was stuck and severely injured. Aria rescued her and got her back to the village pokémon center just in time. Nora is ever so gentle, kind, and loving. She only ever speaks very softly, and would never hurt anyone else. Aria has never seen her angry, only upset. Even though she is smaller, she plays a good motherly role, always caring about everyone else before herself.

This Tauros was laying in the dry dead grass under the hot dry sun in Tumbleweed Gulch when Aria found him. The local water hole had run dry, and in an attempt to help Aria was out supplying water to the nearby wild pokémon. He was so weak and dehydrated that even a second trip for more water proved to only slightly improve his condition. He really needed medical attention and with his weak state, she really didn't offer him much choice. She captured him and rushed him back to her sanctuary where he was able to get the care he needed. Now, he roams the green grassy hills at Sycamore Springs and keeps an eye on her rescued pokémon. He is very kind and gentle, and loved his ears scratched.

This Shinx was relinquished to the rescue one day by a very frustrated trainer. Apparently the trainer, a male, only caught and trained male pokémon, and this particular male Shinx refused to play nice with the others. He is super competitive and a very sore loser when it comes to other male pokémon. With females? Totally fine. But because he couldn't work with the other trainer's pokémon, he did not want him as part of his team anymore, and didn't get any takers when offering for trade. Long story short, he lives with Aria now. For the most part, he's doing wonderful, because at the sanctuary there is a nice mixture of female and male pokémon. Everyone gets along and he seems to play well with everyone because he's not always surrounded by males. Aria keeps an eye on him just in case, though.

Herdier came across Aria and Arashi taking a break from their watering hole duties in Tumbleweed Gulch. He was rather impressed by their efforts and chose to join in their cause. He helped them transport and fill water near the dried-up pond for almost two weeks before it finally rained. During that time, he had grown to like Aria and Arashi and wanted to join her team. Now, he hangs out comfortably on the rescue grounds, tending to the sheep and cattle and any other pokémon that need tending. He's sweet and gentle, and plays a good fatherly role around the rescue.

Believe it or not, this sweet little gal wasn't adopted, rescued, or rehabilitated. She came in the mail in the form of an egg as a congratulations gift from Aria's father. The egg inspired Aria to install an incubation addition to the ICU, realizing she might need it in the future. The egg hatched one sunny morning as Aria was filing some paperwork. The little gal was smaller than average, but full of energy and excitement. Aria has kept her by her side since, and it always seems to be sunny whenever she's around.

Shiny Alolan Vulpix ■
Snow Cloak ■
This quiet gentle soul showed up on the Sycamore Sanctuary's door step sometime during the wee hours of the morning. Arashi was the first to hear the tiny whimpers of the Alolan Vulpix pup from the cardboard box outside. Aria took in the pup right away but besides being a little hungry, she was fine. Now she's grown into a lovely, polite Vulpix whose only desire is to make people happy. Aria adores her of course. She and her other Vulpix Nora have become best friends.

At some point, Kaepora snuck off the farm for the night. He came back with an egg in his talons and Aria couldn't bare to scold him. The egg of course hatching into a Rowlet, proving that somehow Kaepora had found a mate for himself while he was out. No bother to Aria of course! She remembered what it was like when he was a baby, and this new hatchling brought back fond memories. The little female follows her father around like a duckling, always wanting to be cool like daddy. She learned real quick how to prune her feathers and bathe in gentle waters. Sure, she's a little prissy here and there, but overall fun to be around.

Flash Fire ■
Naraka is a Buddhist term for Hell. Raurava is a type of "screaming" Naraka in which beings run wildly about, looking for refuge from the burning ground. When they find an apparent shelter, they are locked inside it as it blazes around them, while they scream inside. Raurava, or Rava for short, was causing chaos in Tumbleweed Gulch while Aria was out attempting to help with the drought and water crisis. Because the area hadn't seen rain in months, the grasses were dying and dry, easily catching flame. This particular Ponyta had zero thought about prancing around, spitting fire and lighting up the fields. Aria was able to corner her, weaken her, and capture her with the help of Ninja and Sakura. It was a disaster, but they managed to put out all of the fires and keep any from spreading to the nearby towns. To this day, Rava is a spitfire (literally) and Aria has a hard time keeping her under control. However, she is very loyal and obedient during battles or training.

Big Pecks ■
A new Pokémon trainer showed up at the Sanctuary with his severely injured Pidove. The trainer had been attacked by a group of "thugs" and nearly all of his Pokémon were in critical condition. Aria and her team were able to treat and heal almost all of his Pokémon, with this Pidove being the only one that needed to stay hospitalized. The trainer left, and after several days the Pidove finally began to perk up. It had several broken bones in its right wing, which was stabilized with a splint. Not being able to fly, Aria kept the little gal in the hospital, treating it for any pain. After two weeks, the splint was able to be remove. After another week of careful physical therapy, she was able to fly again. Aria continuously called the owner and left voicemail updates, but never heard back from the trainer. She worries more trouble found him, but hopes he is just busy and will return soon for his Pidove.
