Ivan simply shook his head as he watched Jacklyn run off downstairs. "She sure is an excitable one, eh?" He said to no one in particular, making sure to still hold Po. He thought about making a break for it now, since Jacklyn wasn't around. Unfortunately, Genny was still there on the roof with him. Plus, he didn't know any other exit outside of the entrance, where Jacklyn was probably waiting. He'd have to bide his time for a bit. He turned to Genny, who seemed to want to ask him to do something.
"I feel that I must apologize about earlier... But I will ask that you accompany Etoile and I as we grab a few supplies. After all, there are many wandering eyes, and I would feel much safe if mon chere would accompany us." Ivan let out a heavy sigh as he saw her start making her way off of the photobooth and towards the elevator. It seemed like he didn't have much of a choice. He wasn't as annoyed, though. In fact, as he followed the girl, he remembered that he would probably need to pick up some Pokeballs and Potions for the road. After all, they don't simply have PokeCenters in the middle of the wilderness now.
Genny seemed to be nervous about... something. He wasn't quite sure what it was, but whatever it was it didn't seem to pop up as she became more and more relaxed as they exited. Ivan picked up three Pokeballs and Potions, a good even distribution of items he thought. He was still surprised with how much money he had actually managed to bring with him - it was the most he had carried with him at once in a while. That thought made him a bit sad, since 2000 didn't really seem like it was all that much now that he thought about it. Jacklyn was waiting for them at the bottom, excitedly holding a camera. "See, with this, we'll be able to take more pictures and document the whooolle trip!" Pocketing the device, she then reached into another pocket pulling out a map, which Ivan was a bit surprised by. "Now, for our next stop on our journey. See, we're here." With a destination set, they made their way towards where Jacklyn was pointing at.
As the group reached the city limit, they were cut off by a group of trainers who seemed like they came from their boat trip, although Ivan would be damned if he recognized any of them. The way the apparent leader was talking pissed Ivan off - who did this punk think he was!? His teammates seemed alright to him, or at the very least they didn't immediately anger him. The three of them were split up to take on the three of them, Ivan being left with the rather cold looking girl. "Battle." The girl almost seemed to stare directly right into his eyes; it was a bit unnerving, to say the least.
Ivan sighed. There seemed to be no real way for them to get through them... at least, not without a battle. "Let's just get this over with, aight?" He said, voice full of annoyance. He let go of his grip on the Pancham, who immediately took on a battle ready stance. Well, at least one of them was excited for this battle. He gave the girl an annoyed look. "Ya gonna send your Pokemon out, or are ya just gonna glare at me!?" He stated impatiently, before taking a step back. He pulled out his comb, combing his hair back as he felt himself loosing his composure.
