a new year brings new expectations. civil unrest starts to manifest in the form of online criticisms that spike after the three day war. now that the region no longer has to face the threat of megalopolans, the people of hoenn turn to address smaller and more personal issues. will the league rise up to the situation? what about questionable events that have transpired, overshadowed and overlooked in the face of more imminent issues?
after the ultra beast war, hoenn begins to heal. the megalopolan invasion may have failed; however, it is clear there is much more at stake. a prophecy revolving around a cyclical meteoroid, the appearance of necrozma and a dangerous and viral alien threaten the safety of the region once more.
with rocket's new boss, the resurgence and reappearance of the crime syndicate's presence is imminent. the league has done its best to repair its reputation, and with the victory of a war under their belt, perhaps it is enough. but the seeds of distrust have already been sown in the ravaged land of this region, causing many to wonder what will grow?
There was something about being alone in a karaoke booth and seining your heart out that was extremely freeing. While Lavone couldn't exactly put his finger on what made it so special, but he knew that he'd be doing the same today, his pokemon joining in and hyping him on as they usually did.
Ah, thought if another variable were to present itself, say a familiar face, Lavone would be obliged to drag said familiar face into the booth along with him. Lucky Cadis to be said familiar face, dragged into this man's shenanigans.
"Let's have some fun!"
Lavone shouted as he dragged Cadis towards the room he had normally reserved.
"o-oh i couldn't possibly intrude!" he'd rather cheer him on right along with his pokemon. "you're doing just fine carrying the room." he was having a bit too much fun with this, more than the average joe. then again karaoke was very popular in kalos, to think it'd be just as popular in hoenn. "did you always have such an enthusiastic personality when it came to karaoke?"
what a disturbing pokemon. it was like having the boogeyman stare you down. "m-maybe after i'm no longer sober." he'd take a sip of his alcoholic beverage, "two to three times a month? the dedication you must have." it was then a thought plagued him, "are you from hoenn by chance? you have the personality of a kalosian. during my visit to that region everyone was so exuberant and expressive, it was a bit overwhelming." lavone would definitely fit in. dawn would come to look at the grimmsnarl, hoping its attention was no longer on him.
clapping with cheeful expression, dawn couldn't help but enjoy the performance given. "again, again! that really does look fun!" a heartfelt laughter escaped his gullet. he didn't expect for such a simple thing to be this fun. "i hope to meet many more galarites like you, haha! you represent them so well!" looking toward the grimmsnarl, he'd say, "why not have your...large friend here go next. i'd love to see him live, in exchange i'll do maybe one or two songs." a big maybe.
what a precious nightmare inducing moment this was. dawn would come to cheer the duo on with a clap here and there. "well a deal's a deal," he'd come to grab a mic once it was his turn. "i haven't sung in so long, i wonder if i can do this..." then again he wasn't being judged for his performance. this was for fun, right? so, fun he would have.
When everything has concluded and the two were sat down to listen to Dawn, they looked at each other, unsure how to feel. While yes his voice was pleasing to the ears, the song itself was somewhat somber.
Once he finished, Lavone hesitated to clap, starting slow but eventually building up to a proper applause, Lavone nudging the Grimmsnarl to do the same- the pokemon clapping a few times and no more.
