Naomi simply smiled warmly at the two while they were scolding her for her attitude. She didn't see a point in worrying about it even if she wasn't sure what the issue was. She was doing just fine so far. She'd not left her house until recently and she was already in a different region!
As they reached the mart, wow it really was big, Kanon asked if anyone had anything they needed and Oswald gave them a task. "Can do!" Naomi said, slumping off of Princess's back before returning her to her ball. She wasn't entirely sure what "camping supplies" entailed but she remembered something about marshmallows.
But first she knew she wanted to get some Potions. She needed to be sure Princess didn't get hurt, after all. So she headed, after several minutes of talking to the lady on the first floor out of confusion, she made her way up the stairs to the second floor. She took a few more minutes to rest at the top of the steps before going to the healing item section. Picking up an armful of Potions, she paused to grab a Burn Heal, and made her way to the cashier.
By the time she made her way to the first floor again she had forgotten what she was supposed to get. It was after she grabbed a mere two Pokeballs that it hit her. She then hurried over to the food and grabbed two big bags of marshmallows. Feeling good about herself she bought her last supplies and went towards the door to wait for the others.
She ended up sitting down next to the doors, resting her head against the wall.
Naomi dozed off until she felt something hit her outstretched legs. She opened her eyes to see a man with long red hair and a leather jacket with a symbol of a flaming bird riding from a pile of skulls laying across her legs.
She blinked in confusion. "What're ya doin?" She asked the man. He got up in a huff and the girl next to him, with short red hair and a similar jacket, leaned down to get in Naomi's face.
"Think you're funny or something?" The girl said, practically spitting with every word. "You think you can just trip one of us and get away with it? Don't you know who we are?"
Naomi tilted her head to the side. "Um...Bikers?" She guessed, judging from the jacket. The girl put her hand forward and grabbed Naomi by the collar.
"Bikers? BIkers? What are you, stupid?" She asked, getting more in Naomi's face. The girl just smiled back in response.
These people were certainly excitable.
As Team JIG got everything ready and headed to the exit of the city they'd find that they weren't the first to do so.
In fact there were three other people standing at the city's exit, as if they had been waiting for someone to pass by. Those that had paid attention on the boat would recognize the group as one of the trios that they had arrived at the region with. A group who had been together since before the news about the teams being a requirement was announced.
There were two boys and one girl among them. One of the boys was a massive young man. Standing even taller than Genevieve and with impressive, especially for his age, muscles, he would be an intimidating presence if he weren't grinning jovially.
The solo girl on the team was smaller, less than five and a half feet, with an icy gaze and neutral expression.
The last of the group, who stood in the center of the trio and, by the way the others looked to him when he stepped forward, was clearly the leader of the group. He wore glasses and had on the smuggest expression one could imagine.
He sneered at the trio approaching. "Finally someone came around, was starting to think the other groups were a bunch of Slowpokes. Though..." He scanned them each. "Looks like you're not much better. The name's Chad and I'm the one who's going to become Champion of this region, you all might as well give it up now. To prove it, lets have a Pokemon battle, right here, right now. It'll save you a lot of time if you learn how futile your adventure is from the start."
He nodded at the other two and they approached. The girl's expression not changing and the boy's taking on a more aggressive face. "Kenta, you take the beanpole." Chad said, nodding at Genevieve. "Fuyumi, handle that thuggish looking guy." He settled his eyes on Jacklyn, who would have been in front of the group. "I'll teach the annoying one a lesson myself."
Kenta punched his open hand with his fist and cracked his neck, stepping to the right to give space between the battlers as Fuyumi did the same, though to the left and with much less punching and cracking. "Ha, about time I get to have some action! This'll be fun!" He shouted. Unlike his companions he was still smiling through this, and looked fairly friendly as he waited for Genevieve to respond.
"Battle." Was Fuyumi's simple response, staring directly into Ivan's eyes as she got into position.
