no :(
this is entirely unfair!
ive been waiting to go to the museum in pewter ever since john told me about it on day one
and then jade gave me that book for christmas
and i planned it all out so i could come and see it after all of the fossil things!
this was the plan!
to go to the museum!

this is so stupid!!

by the way the museum was robbed i guess
and now its closed
and i cant go in

kanaya will you go to mt moon with me i guess we can at least TRY to salvage this

people who rob museums are the worst


[ After sulkily lurking outside of the museum for a little while in the morning, Aradia will be drawing up a plan of attack for Mt. Moon, easily found either at the inn or on a bench outside or at a cafe somewhere. She is not the happiest of campers for once, although her mood will not last long at all. As ever she'll match whatever mode of reply she gets. ]

[ This entry takes place in the dark. The dark of a hotel room! ...In the day, so the blinds are drawn shut. Why? Because Aradia has received only the world's most fantastic shirt. It glows in the dark! Specifically, it is a Haunter shirt...and lit by the dim glow of the shirt and the light from the gear, Aradia can be seen. Why yes, she is also wearing Dad's fedora, a hat that only a few people would recognize, and her hair is actually not crazy - for which you can thank Kanaya, whose disappointment in this ensemble may be sensed through the screen. Aradia, this is not fashion. ...And no one but Kanaya can even see the fact she's probably wearing her omanyte toe socks, which don't help matters. And those are also from John, come to think of it.

Aradia is also wearing what is probably an unconsciously creepy grin. Whoops. That's what happens when you post from a dark room and have a tendency towards unsettling people sometimes?

After a moment of grinning in silence, she'll actually stop that and talk, though. ]


Hi!!! This is Aradia. [ In case you couldn't tell. ] And this is the best shirt ever! John sent it to me! He has one like it, too, and I said it was amazing and now I have my very own! Isn't that just fantastic? I had to turn out the lights to let you all get the proper effect!

[ ...But now that you've gotten it, she'll actually turn the lights back on. Aradia's sitting crosslegged on a hotel bed, presumably in Mahogany from the music, and in the light her grin is a bit less eerie. Sort of. ]

That's not the only reason I wanted to post, though! Actually, I have something I need help with. See, ghost and fossil pokemon are my absolute favorites! And while getting ghost pokemon just requires catching them, fossil types are...well, a little bit harder. I only have a few species: Kabuto's line, Aerodactyl, and Tirtouga's line. [ Though by reason of people leaving she has two of the first and three of the second. ] And this is not at all a complete collection! Which is sad, because I'd like to study fossil pokemon up close.

So if you have any and could either breed me one or trade me one? I will pay or trade you an egg you'd like! Very specifically I am also looking into getting two Archen! One of those is not for me, but is for Dave, whom also has a sad lack of fossil pokemon that has to be corrected!

I figured it was worth asking, at least! Oh, and before I forget, if you didn't tell me your birthday a few months ago when I asked and we're now friends, you should probably tell me about it now! I don't want to miss someone's birthday on accident. And I think that's pretty much everything? Though on the topic of birthdays, I know of three for this month! And just in case you don't? Equius picked the 9th, Francis Bonnefoy told me his birthday is the 14th, and Misaki's is on the 25th! Be sure to wish them well on those days, okay?

[ She's well aware that text isn't a preferred mode of communication for some people, and this is too important to not get out to the greatest amount of people who knew him possible, but...Aradia's forgoing video for once, so all that's coming through is her voice. She sounds fairly calm, if a bit rushed, but there's a bit less pep and a bit more seriousness, though admittedly only those who are familiar with her may even note that much. ]

Hi. Jake English went home today. [ Just...putting it out there, front and center. Aradia takes another breath before continuing. ]

I'm not sure exactly when, but...well, we've been having the same problems as everyone else. A little bit. It was only the once, but - well, let's just say we were all split up. And I was trying to contact everyone to try to coordinate a reunion, but - I couldn't reach Jake's gear.

I tried a few times, just to be sure, so - I don't think it's a mistake. ...Besides which, both of the Jake Pokemon are with me, and - [ Well. Logic therefore dictates that he's gone. ]

If anyone has any Pokemon from his roster I'd appreciate it if you sounded off. I'm sure they're all going to be well cared for but it would be nice to know where they ended up, although admittedly there are a number of Pokemon to account for.

[ There's a short pause, and then, wryly: ] We had a bit of a problem back then, didn't we? ...Anyway, that's about it. Oh! I did find Kanaya, though. We just ended up on opposite ends of town.

[ Aradia's flipped back into "normal" mode, i.e. being a troll - mostly. She's flickering between each version of herself without any real rhyme or reason, although she normally won't flip in a conversation. Therefore people may come across a) Aradia the fairy time-skipping troll, b) Aradia the ghost, c) Aradia the frog spirit, or d) Aradia the robot. She is also sometimes e) still Routeanized human. Depending on which she is at any given time she may or may not have different speaking quirks and personalities - or a lack thereof.

It's sort of a headache, but she's used to juggling things like this anyway. Feel free to catch any of them at any time in any place because why not.

When she turns on video, she's a fairy time-skipping troll as per usual. ]


This again? I wonder how much we'll remember, and how much we'll forget. Either way, this is what I meant by "troll", to those of you who asked. [ A smile, wide and open. ] If you remember, now you'll know!

This really is my favorite form. I've been...hiccuping? I don't know what you'd call it, but this is the best one!

Hey! I'm not sure if everyone watches the EV News - I do, and they have the catchiest little intro jingle, don't you think? [ Pausing to hum that. You're welcome. ]

Anyway! Is anyone planning to go to this prom thing? And has anyone else managed to procquire a silver ticket? I have to say that seeing all those pokeballs drop from the sky was sort of fun! I actually can't take credit for catching my silver ticket, though - Panini caught it. I think he was sort of having a field day with things to catch from the sky, actually. I'll have to keep that in mind for the future.

I've never been to a dance before. So I entirely plan to go! Besides, it sounds like it's happening in a new place, which is exciting. Have any of you been to dances before, though? I wouldn't mind hearing about them if you have!

[ That’s right, it’s time for another joint post! ...Ish. Aradia is clearly in the frame - she apparently has a pokemon filming with the gear, although which one isn’t immediately apparent - surrounded by a plethora of neatly sorted eggs. Jake is only semi-clearly in the frame, since he is apparently lying down surrounded by some eggs slightly off to the side. He is flanked by two Wigglytuff - one male, one female. The female is prodding him in the face while the male sort of just stares.

Aradia is apparently ignoring the fact that Jake fainted dead away for the time being, because there is Business to attend to and anyway he’ll be fine man. Just ignore him! Unless you, you know, can’t. ]


Hi! This is Aradia, again, and - [ ...Oh, wait, right. She veers away from introducing Jake, since he’s not exactly in a useful state right now. The Wigglytuff are now clearly debating something in the background, the female having given up her poking attempts for lost. ] - as it happens, Jake and I have rather a lot of eggs available right now! I’ll be attaching a text document for download at the end of this with the species spread and basic price points, but if you want something and can’t afford it, let us - sorry, let me know and we can absolutely work something out!

I’ve also sort of got some idea of the things they ought to be capable of, but this is our first batch, so...live and learn! Hopefully I’ll learn a lot from this. Oh, and if you’d like to place an order, just be sure to give your location, too! That’s always really -

[ Her brief explanation is interrupted by an incredibly loud slapping sound as in the background both Wigglytuff execute Wake-Up Slap on Jake.

Oh dear. ]
- Tourmaline, Kunzite! [ Aaaand Aradia’s going to check on this after giving a “kill” gesture to whatever happens to be behind the camera. HONESTLY, YOU TWO.

Attached is the aforementioned EGG LIST, which has 139 eggs available. There are still lots left, and as Aradia said - price is negotiable. Now she has to go find some ice for Jake. :| ]

[ Aradia's sitting at a table with a sizeable stack of books and her binder opened to red-inked notes that can't be read clearly on the screen. She's got the pokegear propped up against something, and she smiles absently, clearly ordering her thoughts. ]

Hello! This is Aradia. I've been doing some reading - well, I suppose it's rather a lot of reading? - about the legends of this place. Jade, thank you again for that book! I actually read a reference to it there, and then it took me a little while to locate other mentions of the topic - it's been nearly two weeks? - because I suppose I'm really in the wrong region for this, but -

Hm. I'm rambling. Anyway! Here's a story that some of you might find interesting.

A long time ago, there was a pokémon known as Regigigas. It seems to be part of a creation myth, like a few others - the task Regigigas completed was pulling the continents into place. When it had completed that task, it created three golems in its image: one from an icy mountain, one from rocks, and from one magma. Regice, Regirock, and Registeel. For a time they were worshiped by the people of the land, but this would not last. They were so powerful that the people grew afraid, and took action.

Using magic they sealed away the master of the golems, Regigigas. The three golems it had created were spirited away to a new land, for if they were to come together Regigigas could rise again, and the people of that land feared that would mean endless destruction. The golems were all sealed away, their locations lost or forgotten.

[ Aradia falls silent for a minute or two, making a note in her binder, before looking back up. ] I'll admit it isn't exactly overflowing with details, but I thought I'd share anyway. The legend itself is apparently native to a place called Hoenn. "We built this" - that was in the translations they released. I wonder what it refers to in specific? The placement of the continents? This world's civilization? I really want to go to Blackthorn sometime soon to see for myself! Oh, and the rest, if you weren't following the news, I guess: "Man ends, pokémon ends, everything ends. New worlds inherit new dreams." We've certainly got worlds aplenty represented here, anyway.

This place does have something of a knack for cryptic messages, though. "Our words shall remain here for the ages. Thus we shall erect a pokémon statue outside. They possess great insight and refuse the outside world. We humans must learn to walk in harmony with them. We depart for their sakes."

I wonder how many more of these little messages are hidden around the realm. I suppose we'll just have to find out! At least reading about this makes it easier to know what to keep an eye out for when we're exploring! Although reading about all of this also makes my "to see" list absurdly long, so maybe I ought to stop until I've caught up with that.
