there's nothing inherently wrong with the world; the sun still rises in the morning and sets in the evening; people still go about their daily lives, fulfilling whatever commitments they have and yet, something feels off.
you can't put your finger on it. maybe it's that strange look that passerby gave you yesterday. maybe it's the way the moon hangs in the night sky, or maybe it's the way people seem to be on edge, as if they all have something to hide. people walk around with suspicious eyes, always wary of their surroundings and their actions. you attribute it to them simply being cautious. you choose to ignore the signs.
but it's only a matter of time.
the imperious invaders event continues as rocket takes advantage of the distraction.
with the league's reinforcements in mossdeep, rocket has advanced into fallarbor and verdanturf. will you try to defend against the rocket menace, or let the towns fall?
furthermore, the safari zone has been updated with an easter themed selection! go get them eggs!

Thankfully, the incident a few days prior had been dealt with, but it had left her feeling so uncomfortable for her new friend, she decided to surprise him at his apartment with something to do: baking!
Now, the problem here was that it had been some time since she’d actually done some baking, so her skills were rather rusty. That, and she didn’t know if his apartment had some kind of oven toaster or something.
Sure, she had to pilfer some of the baking supplies from unsuspecting open-air stalls while they weren’t looking, as well as pilfer some vape fluid as well (well to be honest the vape fluid she had to get legally, the rest she got by not-so-nice means) as a peace offering to the young man.
No, no, Evie. Don’t let yourself get distracted now. Keep it up. You’re already so close… she thought to herself, coming to a stop outside the apartment door and then knocking a few times. Looking around, she was a little appalled to see the living conditions of the other—at least it wasn’t as bad as her bed spacing situation down in Slateport.
Literally no privacy at all, either… that’s stupid… she continue to muse in the back of her mind, hoping that the bluenette would come to the door quickly and let her in; the place looked rather seedy and unsafe! The lightbulb flickering overhead was more than enough to set her on edge.

It was just another day off for the Devon programmer. Rikiya would be sitting in his apartment, playing on his computer. More specifically, he was making life a living hell for his teammates. The only thing keeping the screams of angry teammates from flooding through the halls of the building was the fact that he was wearing a headset. As funny as it'd be to use this on his neighbors, he didn't feel like dealing with them, or the cops today.
A knock on the door would prompt his Pikachu to pull on the leg of his jeans. Rikiya would peel the headset off his head, and get out of his chair, but not before giving the little guy an affectionate ruffle on the head. "Thanks.", he'd tell him. He would then make his way to the door, greeting the dark-haired woman from before.
"Yo, Evie, good to see ya!", Rikiya told her, being in good spirits, despite what happened days earlier. At home, the trainer was garbed little differently than he'd be, minus the fact that his boots were at the door in the designated area, his feet only covered in a pair of black socks. The inside of his apartment, though on the somewhat smaller end, looked nice enough on the inside. Everything was kept clean and organized, and the place was well-lit. "Come on inside!", he'd tell the girl, inviting her in.
Once inside, Evelyn would not only see the Pikachu that let him know she was there, but a Shinx laying on the couch lazily, an Electabuzz who was watching the TV, and a Togedemaru who was on a small play set in the corner meant for smaller Pokemon, with the Pikachu racing to join him.
Rikiya would take notice to the stuff she brought with her. "I don't know if my kitchen would be big enough, but we could always try something out.", he'd tell her.
