"There'll be lots more days to talk."

Happy, agreeable chirp!

Pet pet.

She's got some more administrative things to take care of for now.

Permalink

That's okay. Eevee can curl up watching her human for a bit, then go entertain herself and get her energy out before it's evening.

Permalink

Ellie takes care of handing off her other open projects at the lab, and gets the necessary supplies for the trip (tent and bedroll, cookware, firestarters, travel food) and a trainer bag to carry it all in. Professor Oak treats her and Eevee to dinner, and gives Ellie a Pokedex as a parting gift.

The next morning, it's the road headed north out of Pallet Town for Ellie and Eevee.

Permalink

She gives the Professor a friendly parting headbutt and a message through her human of "Thanks for being cool!"

She is so bouncy about getting on the road the next morning. Literally. Each jump is bringing her up to about level with her human's waist.

Permalink

"Looks like someone's ready to get going," she says, shouldering her bag.

Permalink

"Both of us!" she says after some focus, in amidst the excited chirps.

Permalink

She laughs. "You're not wrong." And off they go! The start of the great adventure is at hand.


The road to Viridian City is fairly quiet. The greatest obstacle they're likely to face is a nest of broody rattata or a particularly aggressive pidgey.

Permalink

Eevee has a lot of fun beating up other pokemon! Not, like, anyone who seems to just want to be left alone, but that pidgey can get knocked around a bit!

Permalink

The pidgey is a little too aggressive to properly use its flight advantage, and with Ellie behind her calling tactics, Eevee soon has it on the ropes.

Ellie tosses out a pokeball that grabs up the pidgey in a beam of light and snaps shut. It falls to the ground and wiggles, then gives the click of confirmed capture.

Permalink

She noses the pokeball. "Why'd you bother doing that? I just bruised him a bit, so he's not like badly injured..."

Permalink

"The Professor will make a disappointed face at me if I don't at least try to fill out the 'dex a little before I see him again. Plus I'd like to try the collar out with a pokemon that has no recorded psychic tendencies. And if he decides to join the mail service or whatever, we can make a little on the commission to fund upgrades."

Permalink

She giggles. "Okay. As long as you remember that only cool pokemon can join our team."

Permalink

"I'll give you the final veto, how about?"

Permalink

"Of course." She rubs against Ellie's leg.

Permalink

Pet pet.

Ellie picks up the pokeball, and on they go.

Later in the day, they come across a a garden of bellsprout in the midst of a turf war with some rattata.

Permalink

Pounce!!!

Eevee isn't taking sides, here, she's just causing CHAOS! Though she'll bap anyone seriously actually trying to injure each other; real war is against the spirit of pokemonness.

Permalink

This does indeed cause a lot of CHAOS! Neither faction was really expecting a completely unrelated pokemon to barge in and start causing trouble.

Everyone backs up to regroup and take stock of the new situation. The bellsprout chime uncertainly as the rattata chitter and hiss.

Permalink

She laughs and sticks her tongue out at them. 

Permalink

They make various threatening gestures at her.

Permalink

Do they want to do anything other than gesture? 

Permalink

...Nnnot with Ellie standing right there, no.

Permalink

She laughs and flicks her tail as smugly as eeveely possible.

They can suit themselves! (She bounds off back to Ellie.)

Permalink

"Enjoy yourself there, did you?"
