Alec had decided to stay in Mauville for a little while longer. It was not only because it was his first time in Hoenn, but he wanted to actually explore the city itself!. He would always have an opportunity for a Gym challenge or going out to Catch wild Pokemon, but to just sit back and enjoy the little things? That was something that Alec was beginning to do. When he first had become a trainer, he was impatient always running ahead to either go train, or to go battle a Gym battle. It was like he had ants in his pants or something. But now, it had dialed down some. He still had a lot of work to do in terms of that department, but he has shown some small improvements over the years. His Piplup Iris was in his arms feeling comfortable just being right there. She had also seemed to be sleepy. It would have been less of a Hassle to keep her in her Pokeball, however Alec didn't mind her resting in his arms.
It was then that she had started to yawn slowly, her eyes blinking awake as she looked at Alec. Alec couldn't help but smile at her. "Well, good morning sleepyhead!" he said, his words soft as he had a grin on his face. She looked around while still in her arms, trying to examine the area thoroughly. This was the first time Alec had ever had one of his Pokemon out and about in a city.
Inferno, Alec's Charmander would run off if something he liked had caught his attention. Iris however was Different. She never liked not being far away from her trainer. She had a very confusing personality. She was indeed timid, however there were times where she had a sense of pride that would outshine her timid nature. "Should we go look for the Gym, Iris? We won't challenge it yet, but we can still go take a quick peek! What do ya say?" Iris contemplated for a minute, thinking about it really hard while looking cute. She then perked happily and nodded. "Alright, then lets go!" With excitement, Alec began to move from where he had stopped but suddenly had bumped into someone on accident. "Sorry about that! I didn't mean to bump into you!" he said, immediately giving the stranger an apology.
