Oldale was little town nestled right in the middle of southwestern Hoenn.

Landlocked unlike most cities and towns of the region, it didn't have much of a goings on but every now and then even a little villa in the sticks had a problem that required a specialist.

A flock of bird pokémon had taken to roosting in the powerlines. Although the Oldale was small its people still relied on electricity as much as any modern metropolis. The difference was if Oldale lost power, unlike Mauville or Lilycove it could be days before they got the materials and the technician needed to fix everything.

If a ranger could simply get the pkmn and its nest away from the powerlines without damage to the lines, the pokémon or themselves it would be a job well done. Considering the species in question, the team he brought along with him was a good match to get the job done. With Gan plopped onto his shoulder he spoke to the Ditto. "Let's get started."

Novak rolled his shoulders, approaching the place that had been indicated. He had heard of some people who complained of Pokemon nesting in the power lines, and this could be a problem. Oldale was a smaller town, so it was harder to get people who could fix each issue specifically. 

Of course, Novak was hardly the person who would ordinarily be called to do this. He was studied in Pokemon and their behavior, sure, but there were plenty of other people, like the Rangers, who would be willing to do the job. And, of course, they weren't part of Rocket. But, then again, neither was "Novak Hadfield," as far as the League was concerned, and Novak had wanted an opportunity to stretch his legs and break from his normal routine.

He found another person, who seemed to be here for the same reason. Good. He felt like he could manage it with his team alone, but help was always appreciated. "Hey," he said to the stranger. Olive, his Voltorb, rolled along leisurely behind Novak, and his Natu Cedar stood on his head, the tiny bird eerily still and silent. "Are you here for the nest problem?" His eyes flicked up to the top of the power line, where he could see the offending nest.

"We could probably bring it down without much trouble, but we'll have to be careful about the occupants while we find a place to move it." No Pokemon was currently visible, but there were likely eggs or chicks in the nest, and the parents were likely off hunting for food or something.

Belatedly, Novak remembered to introduce himself. "Ah, sorry. I'm Novak. Novak Hadfield." He stuck to the fake last name for now.

Through an uncommitted gaze Sénon watched the newcomer approach.

He seemed forward enough but anyone with less juice in the league than himself was suspect. His own past was only mildly sordid but he knew in what few ways his own morals went against league protocols or standards. Everyone was essentially a part of the league but not everyone was honest and true to the cause of the organization.

Even still, being green was no reason to actually be suspicious of someone and so when he introduced himself, the redhead responded in kind. "Game. Sénon Game." He gave the man a head nod, casting away his second-guessing to better suit himself to get the job done. Self analyzing he was probably just a little sore that Mal or Utah, or that kid Moana hadn't joined him. It seemed like a fun, low-stakes time with someone he actually liked already.

More than willing to work with what he had, he joined Novak in speculating on what they were dealing it; how to move the nest and which species the nest belonged to. From the looks of it, no eggs were hatched and neither the mother nor father were in the area.

Expanding a pokéball to release one of his team it was the seviper he'd captured on the fiery path he sent winding up the telephone pole to check what species they were dealing it. It came back with an egg it placed in Sénon's hands its body language (and the lack of cries from a snake in the nest) suggesting that he was right; no hatchlings, and no mama bird in sight.

Maybe if they moved fast enough they could migrate the nest right now.

"Got any good transportation pokémon Novak?"

Novak nodded when the stranger introduced himself, committing the unique name to his memory. If the way he had introduced himself was some sort of pop culture reference, it was entirely lost on Novak. He didn't notice the stranger analyzing him suspiciously, either, as he was busy analyzing the situation in front of him.

Before he could suggest a way to check whether the nest was occupied or not, Game had sent his Seviper up the pole to check on the eggs. Well, that worked, even if it was a bit risky. Still, there was no point in complaining about something after it had been done. Who knew, maybe there wouldn't be trouble after all.

"Pidgey eggs, I think," said Novak, eyeing the sample that Game held in his hand. "I have a few Pokemon with Teleport. We can probably enlist them to help get the nest down---" Novak's words stopped short in his mouth as he looked up to the top of the pole and saw an imperious Pidgeot perched atop it where there had certainly not been one before, glaring down at the two humans.

One of which held one of its eggs in his hands. Ah. Way to make a first impression...

Novak swore softly, but immediately thought of how the Rangers would handle the situation. For all the grievances he had against the League, even he looked up to the Rangers. "Hello there. We intend no harm to your egg. We only---"

Nope. Either the bird wasn't buying the excuses, or it simply had no intention of hearing them out in the first place. With an angry screech, the Pidgeot slashed its wings, creating a huge blade of air that hurtled right towards where the two of them were standing. Cedar hooted softly from atop his head, and then suddenly Novak wasn't there anymore, having been Teleported about six feet to the right of where he was previously. Novak hoped Game would be fine, and that he would avoid damage to the egg he held.

Well, fuck.

He'd trained a pidgey or two in his day. Back when the national 'dex' only recognized a handful of pkmn and thus only a few birds, pidgey easily rose above the rest as the one of the most versatile and powerful; particularly because pidgey was the only one among the doduo, spearow, farfetch'd that had a three stage evolution. In terms of avians pidgey was the pride of Kanto and their trainers.

So he too knew a pidgey egg when he saw one.

With Seviper coiling around his leg and encircling him he blocked out everything as he stared down the egg, for a moment lost in nostalgia.

He'd only barely just heard Novak mention a teleporting pkmn he had. When his head jerked up to look at his would-be partner for this mission, only to finally notice the pidgeot glaring down at them.

At him in particular.

Novak tried to reason with the bird, earning him some points with Game. Already agitated the egg's mother slashed air at them in which Novak teleported away.

Standing his ground with a stern and unbroken gaze at the attacker he watched the AIR SLASH miss him only just barely. He spoke to Novak without looking at him paying the pidgeot the respect and attention it demanded. "It's not going to hurt me while I have it's egg." The scarred earth proved it only missed because it intended to.

With one human understanding its intentions it turned to attack the one of the two that wasn't holding it's children hostage.

Using TWISTER it sent a small but mighty localized tornado right in Novak's direction. Game stepping to the left slowly to keep out of the attacks reach.

Novak watched Game stand his ground, stating that the Pidgeot wouldn't hurt him if he had its egg. He hesitated. That was true, and he hadn't considered it previously. Perhaps if they could divert the Pidgeot's attention from Game and get it focused on him instead, Game would be able to get the nest down and move it away from the power line. 

Sure enough, the Pidgeot attacked him once more with a Twister, the miniature whirlwind tearing up grass and dirt as it spun towards him. Cedar, silent as ever, teleported out of the way of the attack once more. After this, Novak shot a meaningful glance at Game. He'd draw the bird's attention. He began to speak again.

"That's, quite frankly, a terrible place for your nest," Novak continued. The Pidgeot glared at him. "If not us, someone else will try to move it. And they might not be so understanding---"

Another Air Slash, and another Teleport. The Pidgeot seemed even more irritated than before, but that was fine. Novak just needed it to be occupied.

Novak gave him a look and Game nodded.

Acting as bait for the Pidgeot's ire gave Senon some room to maneuver. With one direction of his hand the Seviper took off again up the pole and gather the rest of the eggs one of the time.
From their pokéballs Kiri ( ) and Dose was called to the field and not wanting to draw the attention of the flying-type he mere pointed at it with an 'attack' gesture he trained with his core pkmn team. Seeing a flying type she instantly knew what he would ask of her and used SMACK DOWN to clip the bird's wings.

Blasting it with a rock to the back of the head it was forced down to the ground where it would be subject to a follow up HYDRO PUMP, blasting it away some distance via sheer water pressure it couldn't move to avoid nor slow.

It was a bit of a nasty thing to attack a mother just trying to defend her nest but it was his job to move the nest or otherwise get the pidgeot to depart. Roughing it up a little bought them the time they needed to clear the nest without the eggs being hurt.

As Seviper brought down the last of the three eggs it went up the pole once more with Dose ( ) on his back and Sénon's last orders in its head. "Use TOXIC and GASTO ACID; destroy the nest."

Quickly the two moved to destroy the nest by covering it with toxic secretions, bile and gunk. Ultimately making it fall apart into soggy toxin riddled twigs roots and branches, even when it all dried it couldn't be used again. 'Mother Hen' would have to find new materials to build a new nest and in going that far, it wouldn't come back here to do considering 'here' would be where it lost at least one of its eggs.

Returning all his pkmn to their balls he waved over his partner putting an egg in his hand. "Hey Novak get over here!" He called out as the washed-up pidgeot shook dry and started to fly at them again. With a vertical pitch straight up into the sky he launched the third egg as hard and as straight as he could knowing the pidgeot would catch it in her beak easily if it was vertically thrown. "Use that teleport to get us out of here." He placed a hand on the mans shoulder, knowing their job was done.

Sure enough, even as Novak dodged Air Slashes, Twisters, and Whirlwinds, Game had taken the hint and sent up his Pokemon to bring down the other eggs and destroy the nest. It was sad to have to destroy the nest, but Novak understood what Game was going for. If something like this happened once here, the Pidgeot would likely be hesitant to build its nest in the same spot. No permanent harm would be done, assuming it chose to build elsewhere. 

When Game was finished with the eggs, his Pokemon knocked the bird out of the sky, blasting it with a Hydro Pump. As it recovered, Game recalled all of his Pokemon, and Novak did the same with Cedar and Olive, releasing his Ralts, Yarrow, instead. He could theoretically use Cedar, but too much teleporting was probably not good for the tiny bird, especially at such a relatively young age and with so many others. Alone, he'd be fine, but he'd been transporting Novak too. 

Novak was shocked for a split second when Game threw the egg straight upwards, but then saw the Pidgeot flying at them and understood. It was a smart distraction, and the Pidgeot would be more than capable of catching it. Pidgeot were some of the best fliers in the world.

When Game approached and asked for the Teleport, he nodded and motioned to Yarrow. The Ralts warped them away from the area, and they found themselves standing in a different part of the town. Some people were startled, but teleportation wasn't that uncommon of a sight, and they were soon forgotten by the small, slow-moving crowd.

Novak nodded at Game, recalling Yarrow with a pat on the head. "You handled that rather well," he said to the man. "It's a shame about the nest, but hopefully that'll get the message across, and that problem won't repeat itself."

The teleport didn't take them as far as he'd liked, but an escape was an escape. "I don't think I've ever handled a league mission that fast before."

In each of his hands sat one of the other two pidgey eggs.

Another part of the lesson for Mama Bird; she lost two children to the humans that destroyed her nest. It wasn't exactly a nice thing to do but it ensured that she would build her nest far away from people (even if it also meant she would be more hostile to humans). The power lines were free and clear and without an apex avian unnerving the people passing by and risking the power being interrupted by wayward talons trying to grab food scurrying by on the lines.

He handed one of the eggs to Novak like it was a parting gift, and it was because he sure as shit wasn't going back to where that pidgeot was to put it back. There was no 'back' to put it back to. With no nest it would take its remaining egg and fly away.

He crossed his arms in thought, actually trying to think about it and no faster instance of a job well done came to mind. "Seems like we work well together Novak." Keen to get the hell out of town before the pidgeot stumbled upon them again Game began to walk away giving some final words before he spun on his heels to disappear into the woods. "We should do it again sometime."

Novak felt his upper lip curl slightly in distaste. "League work... hm." He shrugged. "On this end, it's more the work of a caring citizen of Hoenn. But yes," and here his voice lost the bitterness that it had held just a moment prior. "That really was handled exceptionally. Thank you."

Game handed him a Pidgey egg, and... well, he did feel a little guilty for it. It was theft of a child. But there were so many Pidgey, it was hardly like they were an endangered species. And it was just an egg. The Pidgeot had other babies to worry about, as harsh as he felt even thinking it.

And, anyways... "Thanks, man. Guess I'm keeping this. There's no way in hell I'm going back to that demon's nesting site." He smiled ruefully. "Let's hope neither of us suffer a future encounter with the angry parent." 

Game seemed to be eager to leave. And, honestly, the Teleport wasn't as distant as he'd hoped it was, either. He was not risking another encounter. "Good day, Game. Hope I run across you sooner or later."

The parting words spoken, Novak bent down to pat Yarrow's head, and the man and the Ralts vanished in a blink of an eye.
