Okay, I took the suggestion of a comment and had Belle learn Shadow Claw. Should be fun to use, and I do like experimenting with moves and such.
I walk out onto a pier, and talk to a trainer standing there. He turns to me and says that a Good Rod is awesome.
I kinda nod, and then all of a sudden he says that we're of like mind and shoves a fishing rod into my hands.
Well...let me just put that in my pocket here.
While I'm walking along route 209, I come across a broken tower made of stone...and I notice that there's a spot that would be a perfect fit for an Odd Keystone some guy handed to me while I was in Hearthome. I push the Odd Keystone into the stone tower and see what happens.
I notice that the keystone fits perfectly. "Hallowed Tower" is written on it. Unsure of what it does yet, but we'll see.
I finally made it to Solaceon Town, but my rival ran into me.
"Donny! I got something cool. I'll show you as a special favor!" He looked surprised. "Huh? What the...what's this all about? I got some Seals, but I forgot to put them on. Oh...right, it's because I was at the ruins...they're cool, you'll have to check them out. I even found a Hidden Machine, Defog! Anyway, I'll battle you another time, see ya!"
And before I could get a word in, he just ran off.
Sometimes I worry about that boy.
I got into town and talked to a few people, and recieved the Pokemon History App.
Suddenly, I noticed a sign.
"Wanted! Pro Pokemon Catcher!"
I knocked on the door and a man answered it. "HI! You saw the notice outside about us hiring, right?" He pointed. "Is that a Pokedex there? You must know Professor Rowan! You are JUST the Pokemon searching expert we've been looking for!"
He went quiet, then all of a sudden...
I blink. "Excuse me?"
"I want you to bring me one. You must bring it today, or we're not gonna be able to run our main article. I'll pay you with a Heart Scale and some Poke Balls for it."
I grin. I have one in the PC. I go over to the Pokemon Center and go right back.
"Oh! That's it! BURMY! Thanks, let me get a closer look!" He stared intently at the Burmy. "I see...hmm...that's it! Thank you, now I can write a great article!"
He hands me some Pokeballs and a Heart Scale.
After a bit more exploration, a woman lets me have a Seal Case and some Seals. With a bit of experimentation, it seems it changes the way the Pokemon enter the battle. Just a neat little asthetic change.
The little boy in the house says that if I can find some pokemon that look like letters, he can give me some seals.
I fight a few trainers and also put in a Pokemon into the Daycare center to raise Sheldon a level and also to try it out.
I eye the Lost Tower. This is where departed Pokemon are laid to rest.
I go into the building and an ominous feeling washes over me. The steps creak as I walk up. On the third floor, the fog becomes too much for me to see, and I have to retreat. Instead, I'll go to the Solaceon Ruins.
For now, I have to stop, so more a little bit later!
