Fie Forest felt a bit like home. For a decent chunk of his life, he alternated living between various routes, mostly sticking to those surrounded by jungle. Fie Forest involved traveling around Kain, and so he didn't visit often. However, he had visited enough that its looming trees, piercing screams of pokemon, and threat of eminent death hanging around every corner felt familiar.
He took a deep breath, pulling the cool air into his mouth. Despite it being winter, there was still a decent amount of foliage hanging around that he had to be alert the entire time. He knew the dangers of this forest well, and was prepared for an attack. On his body hung his beartic jacket, left open to let in some fresh air underneath the thick fur. On his feet were a thick pair of hiking boots, and thick pants helped to carry various items, including his pokeballs. What wasn't kept in his pants was in his bag, which hung off of both shoulders. Inside the largest pocket sat three eggs with a blanket tucked between them to avoid them clacking into each other. On one side of his belt hung his knife, and the other side the holster that held his shotgun.
Beside him was his houndoom, Bond. Steam rose from his open jaw, and a bit from his warm body as well. Giuseppe was used to the smell by now. Every now and then he heard a particular whooshing sound above the trees, and knew that his skarmory, Icarus, was soaring above them. The bird was one of the newest pokemon he had received from the hackers, and he was very interested in seeing how far he could push the steel bird.
That was the reason why he was here. His main team was strong, but they were too similar to each other and he had never fancied himself as any sort of mono-type trainer. He'd continue with them for some time, but if he was going to beat the gym leaders and be well-protected in his shop, he needed some variety. So, he had decided to take a few days vacation and told Mallory to keep her eye on the shop while he went for a little training session. The other bonus to going to Fie Forest was that he was hoping to catch himself something in the fletchling line.male spinarak 7/10
