Naomi gave a jump as Oswald clapped his hands together. Her eyes had been drooping and she was starting to nod off when the loud noise woke her up. Her new friend was telling her other new friend, Kanon, that he had wanted to watch the battle more but something about being knocked over? That was unfortunate, who knocked him over?
Naomi looked around and realized that they were the last people left on the docks, besides the Dockmaster who was watching them.
"Since you won the battle, I think it's up to you to decide what we do next, Miss Kanon!"
That made things easier, Naomi wouldn't know where to begin. How did people adventure? Her house was basically the only place she knew so she wasn't even entirely sure what a city was supposed to look like. She wondered if they all were this...empty feeling.
"We should find a Pokémon Center or something. Bubbles took a couple good hits in that fight, so it would be good to heal him up. The hard part will be getting him in here for it."
"To the heal place!" Naomi called out, moving forward at a meandering pace. She paused as she realized that Princess hadn't moved. "Wazmatter?" She asked, tilting her head to the side. Princess stared at the girl for a while and then Naomi's mouth opened up in a "o" shape.
"Where's it?" She asked her companions.
The Dockmaster walked up to them, laughing. "I was wondering when someone would ask, here's a map of the town, the Pokemon Center isn't far from here, we thought it important to make sure any sailor's Pokemon got quick treatment."
Naomi smiled at the man and gave him a thumbs up before heading off where the map indicated. It was her first time reading a map, how hard could it be?
Ten minutes of wandering through side streets later they came across the building with the red roof and Pokecenter symbol. "See? Always going left DOES work." Naomi said. She had been oddly determined to keep the map, despite her struggles figuring out when to turn.
Upon entering the Pokemon Center they, at least those who are used to them, would find they look similar to most others. Unlike some more modern and updated regions the Pokemon Center didn't contain a Mart. However they did contain an area in the back where adventurers could rest, as well as a small lounge off to the side with couches, vending machines, and a television that currently was showing a weather report.
The lady at the center was familiar as well, the main difference being her pink hair was tied in twintails, and there were several trainers milling about, some of them other groups from the boat they had arrived on. Naomi was staring longingly at the couches and before long she headed over to one.
She only stopped when someone called out to her that her Rhyhorn was having trouble getting through the doorway. Naomi absently returned Princess to the ball and, giving the Pokeball a cheek-hug, flopped belly-first onto the couch.
The other group, led by Jacklyn, wouldn't have as much trouble locating what they needed. Though Genevieve would have an encounter during which, upon turning a corner, a man bumped into her.
He had long, red, hair, and was wearing a leather jacket. If one were to look at the back they'd see a symbol of what looked to be a flaming bird rising from a pile of skulls. He looked up at her and scoffed, grumbling about stupid tourists, and continued past. Where he met with another person, a woman with a similar jacket and red hair, though extremely short, and began to talk. She was laughing at something he said and he was obviously gesturing in Genevieve's direction.
They didn't seem to be causing any trouble but the other people in the area tended to give them wide berth.
