“I can’t decide,” Rachel sighed, taking a moment from packing her backpack, “I mean, there are so many options; Kanto is classic, oh, or the Kanto-Johto two-in-one deal. Probably not Unova, not feeling drawn to that…”
Ramona did not respond in any way.
“Kalos is new and different! Maybe Hoenn, or Sinnoh, they have contests-!”
“Do you like contests?” Ramona prompted, eager to finish this conversation.
“Yeah, I do,” Rachel admitted, “oh man, yeah! Let’s go to a region with contests! But if I go to Hoenn most of my team is, well…”
“Out of place?” Ramona offered.
“Well, Matt and Viki will probably stay here with Noel, Mini-Z is thinking of going back to his home territory-“
“Scotty could come with us if we went to Sinnoh!” Rachel realized, “…oh, wait, then what about Dew?”
“She’s going to study under a master samurott anyways,” Ramona mentioned, handing Rachel her poké ball belt.
“Really?” Rachel responded, “Good for her!”
Rachel stopped by Ramona again as the two attempted to find every possible thing they might need to start a journey, with Scotty’s help.
“But, Hoenn is your species’ home region, do you wanna’ go there?” Rachel offered.
“Do you?” Ramona retorted.
Rachel made a conflicted groan and meandered off to figure out how much clothes she could fit in a single backpack.
“Wait!” Rachel barked, sticking her head back into the living room, where Scotty and Ramona were checking their bags. “We couldn’t take Scotty if we went to Hoenn.”
“Probably not,” Ramona agreed.
“Then…” Rachel’s eyes lit up, “We’ll go to Sinnoh! Oh, I love Sinnoh! It was my first region,” she sighed wistfully. “We’ll get to see mountains, and lakes, and Twinleaf Town, and contests-!”
“…which means you should probably pack a nice outfit, shouldn’t you?”
“Crud!” Rachel yelped, disappearing again to find just that.
Rachel straightened up from a triple-check of their combined luggage, “What do you think?” she put to her two traveling companions, “Are we ready?”
“I mean, they have stores in Sinnoh,” Scotty pointed out, “anything we forgot I’m sure we can find. Or you guys could mail it to us,” he added to the gathered tenants of the house.
“Good point!” Rachel agreed, zipping up her backpack, “Shall we away?” she asked Scotty and Ramona. Looks were exchanged, then nods, and the trio headed to the door, Rachel leading with great enthusiasm. Just before opening the door Rachel turned to her team-ish gathered in the living room,
“Well, my friends! We’re off!” she turned with flair to the door and flung it open, “Into the wild blue yonder!” she hollered, setting out with her two best pokêmon partners on a brand new journey.
