WELCOME TO UBERRIME CITY
LOCAL INFORMATION
Local Pokémon: Pidove Pichu Elekid Helioptile Pawniard
With cities come pests, and Uberrime has its fair share of annoyingly domesticated Pokémon. Pichu and Elekid form strange social packs, working together to rifle through the bits and pieces left outside of diners and cafes. Helioptile, originally introduced to feed on the massive Pichu infestation, are now just as big of a nuisance, sunning themselves on the stone sidewalks and occasionally snacking on the overweight Pidove that flock to Uberrime. Pawniard trained by the local branch of Rangers work to keep crime - at least, the obvious kind - to a minimum. Uberrime's official bird is Pidove.
The very definition of opulence, Uberrime is packed to the brim with shining metal buildings, bustling shopping centers, and the latest in technology from researchers around the island - and even from other regions. Far and away the most advanced city for miles, Uberrime boasts a multi-story gym, highlighting Steel and Electric-type Pokémon, along with an alternative route through which those less inclined to fight can answer puzzling questions to advance. Those with scientific interests will be right at home, especially researchers, who will no doubt find work in any field they please. Breeders, however, may find themselves up a proverbial stream without a proverbial paddle, as Uberrime's population is inundated with the latest in pure blooded oddities and attractive award-winning Pokémon. Oddly, Uberrime seems to have no discernible culture, nor has it ever...

Scrap rolled over on her cot, the joints of the thing creaking as she did so. Once she’d readjusted her position, she noticed that she hadn’t needed to shove or move Scratch in the process. Bones not being there was unsurprising, since she much preferring to settle down in her ‘nest’ that was actually a backpack filled with shredded wrapping paper under the cot. ”Scratch?” The girl murmured sleepily as she forced a heavy eyelid open and her aquamarine eye scanned the room. It was small and she wasn’t the only person in it, but she had her own little corner. The cot was thin, but way more comfortable than the floor or the boat she had been staying in and she had two thick blankets.The place was also heated, but not the best insulation, so being close to the outside wall it was colder--hence multiple covers.

It didn’t take her long to spot the purple feline, even with one half open eye blurry with sleep. The Purrloin was standing on her hind legs, propped up on a box wrapped to look like a present, with her dainty front paws placed on the window sill as she looked out. Scrap squinted when her gaze moved to the window, the light coming through much brighter than normal. It was almost like a glare. She made an incoherent groan and Scratch’s ear flicked back at the sound. The feline looked over her shoulder to the blond child. ”It snowed.” She stated simply, but she knew the meaning of what she said was much more complicated than the words.

It took Scrap’s sleep fogged mind a few long moments to process the information, then both eyes fully opened and she bolted upright. ”It snowed?” Her sudden exclamation got a couple of the room’s other occupants shifting or grumbling and she ducked her head a little. Typically she wouldn’t care about disturbing others, but she liked this particular group of women--they left her alone, didn’t ask questions, and only tried to help her once. She did not want to get voted out only to start this process over again. The girl kicked her covers off and rolled from her bed, bare feet slapping the floor as she flew to the window. It had snowed. The outside of her window was blanketed with the stuff, trails already worked through on the sidewalks by the early morning holiday shoppers. Snow meant many things for many people, but she was the only person she knew that it held a certain significance.

Scuffling sounds from behind her had her turning her head, her floppy golden hair whipping with the sharp movement. Bones had her foot stuck in the pouch again. With a roll of her eyes, she loped back over to help the Vullaby loose. The process ended up dumping most of the red and green wrapping paper scraps a nice guy at the bookstore let her have--they had been wrapping gifts for free. ”Hey, Bones. It’s snowed!” The dual type seemed confused as to why this information was relevant. The child sighed. ”That means it’s my birthday.” She whispered with exasperation. ”Oh! Happy Birthday!” The avian said quickly to try to recover for her lapse in memory. Scrap patted her on the head to let her know it was alright.

Scrap hadn’t told many people when her birthday was, mostly because very few people had ever asked. They always got this sad smile on their face, which never made any sense to her. What was wrong with your birthday being on the first day of snow after the warmer times of year? Sure, sometimes it meant it was later in the year, but then it was earlier others--like this year! When she had been in Piscari, she wasn't able to track it, since didn't snow there. Once the new year passed, she just added another number to her age. Also, who had time to track dates? She sure didn’t have a calendar, well, she hadn’t until Lupo had gotten her a cell phone. It was just a burner, or temporary, one, but it had a calendar and it could take pictures! Scratch was very photogenic. Bones...not so much.

The girl worked on getting dressed, throwing her pants on over her blue P.J. bottoms and putting on her new socks--they had Christmas lights on them!--over her more worn ones. She had a sweatshirt to pull over her pj top and opted for putting on her shoes before her thick coat--it made it hard to bend over. Scratch strolled her way back over to their corner, her ear flicking like it did before she wanted to know something. ”Where are we going today? Work?” The street kid shook her head. ”Nope. Lupo said I needed to be sure to give myself days off. So, I’m picking today.” She declared as she pulled on her blue gloves and fished her backpack the rest of the way out from under the cot and reached back under for a box. They were going shopping and she was hoping she’d be able to pick up a new move for her Pokemon somewhere.

Scrap opened the box to reveal even more wrapping paper shreddings, but these were fresh. She considered her gloves for a moment, thinking about the task she needed to do, and opted she put them on too soon. Using her teeth--which made the Purrloin sigh--she pulled hand coverings off. The specialist crammed the old paper--at least what wasn’t still under her cot--into the waste bin and worked on refilling it. Once she thought it was enough, she held it open for Bones to climb in. Scrap peeked into the back. ”That good?” Bones worked their clawed feet through the scraps before settling down and nodded in approval. The blond grinned and flashed the bird a thumbs up. Scratch took a moment to reflect on how much this girl had changed just in the last couple of months--well, since leaving Piscari really. She would not have smiled this much in a week, let alone in half an hour.

The blond waif tugged her gloves back on after zipping her coat--she’d thought that through--and swung her backpack into place between her shoulder blades. ”Ready, Scratch?” She asked as she used her foot to sweep a few shreds of wrapping paper back under her bed. The feline answered by falling in next to Scrap’s side. The trio left the women’s shelter, waving goodbye to the brunette at the desk and stepping out into the cold city air. The snow crunched under her feet as she moved quickly down the sidewalk. ”Step careful, Scrap. There could be ice under the snow.” The last thing they needed was a trip to the hospital. ”Pft. Okay mom.” She tossed over her shoulder mockingly, earning a cackle from her bag that made her grin. The Purrloin glared at the bag and considered ripping it open, but refrained. Destroying Scrap’s things she worked so hard for was counterproductive. At least one of them had to think like an adult.

The Purrloin hastened her steps to catch up with the quickly moving girl, weaving around some snowman wearing a santa hat. She was getting use to Scrap being full of energy since being able to get stretches of good rest in warm places and regular meals. It pleased her greatly, but was exhausting at the same time. Who knew that more energy meant more ways to get into trouble? The child finally slowed to a walk once they were free of crowding buildings and in an area with a little more open space on the edge of the city. They were drawing nearer some of the trainer parks, hence the larger sections of snow-covered land. Scrap enjoyed walking past the area to watch the other Pokemon, even if she had no intention of battling that day. It was a great way to discover new Pokemon and most trainers were more than happy to babble on and on about them. Unless there typing was dark, she wasn’t interested and she was pretty good at picking them out.

There were fewer decorations out here--being here and there rather than looking like Christmas threw up on every surface. The festive pieces were also more likely to have...damage. A natural side effect of keeping anything rather delicate near dueling Pokemon. Scrap had been planning to go around the park, but a nearly deafening roar caught her attention. It sounded huge! Even Scratch seemed intrigued, her ears perked and whiskers pushed forward. ”Let’s go see!” The blond took off running, snow flying up from the trail she left as she cut across the corner of the park. She came over the rise to see large brown Pokemon with a practically bald head and flat nose wrestling with a...Pangoro! She recognized that Pokemon, it was part dark type!

There was crowd following the fight, chasing it like a bunch of metal beads being pulled by a magnet--several wearing festive hats or antlers. Bones started wiggling in the bag, calling to be let out to see. Scrap obliged by putting the pack on backwards, so it sat on her front, and opening the flap after pulling off a glove with her teeth. The Purrloin’s sharp ears swiveled at the sound of a familiar yark. Her emerald gaze soon found what she was looking for--Sal the Riolu. ”Look, there’s Sal.” She pointed out, getting a confused look from both the Vullaby and the girl. ”But if Sal is here…” Scrap trailed off as she searched for Lupo. There he was! Refereeing the match and wearing…”A Ranger uniform?” The three looked at each other. ”Lupo is a Ranger?” After a long pause, Bones shrugged. ”Doesn’t surprise me really. He reeks of wholesome.” This got a laugh from Scrap who eventually shrugged as well. ”Makes no difference I guess.”

The blond child had just about decided to get closer and maybe try and say hi to Lupo when the match was done, when there was a woman with dark hair and a white four-legged Pokemon yelling at everyone. She hadn’t seen what happened to make the short lady mad, but it seemed to stop the match. ”Yikes. Looks like he has his hands full. We’ll bother him later.” She slipped her phone from her pocket and took a picture of the Ranger looking professional enough, if not exasperated. ”We’ll send this to him later. Tell him we know his ‘big secret’” She commented with a chuckle as she shut the phone and dropped back into her coat pocket. ”Let’s go to the shopping district. I want to see the giant Christmas trees.”

The now 12-year-old cut across the street to dive back into the more crowded areas of the city. She had her hands in her fleece-lined pockets, having opted leave her gloves off because they lowered the physical dexterity of her fingers--a very poor thing to do to a thief and pickpocket. Her aqua eyes trailed the decorations that littered the city. They’d been up for a couple weeks, but they looked different powered with snow. With her gaze trailing a garland on a rail next to a inclining sidewalk, she wasn’t paying attention when she went around the corner and nearly collided with some guy’s legs. She swirled to the side, glaring up at him as if he was totally his fault, but he seemed too distracted. Her flash of anger was soon replaced by bewildered amusement as the stantler antlers and giant red nose he wore. Pft. Whatever. Grown ups.

Brushing him off, she girl continued on her way. Bones, still under Scrap’s chin from her having put her pack on backwards, looked up at the girl. ”Are we shopping today? Can we get a snack?” The Vullaby asked, eyes gleaming at the thought of food. The girl laughed. ”A little shopping, yeah. And we’ll get lunch.” She amended snack for lunch, though she knew the bird meant something with meat versus something sweet. Bones gave a squawk of approval. The constant ring, ring, ring of a bell could be heard up a head. It wasn't until she got to the corner that she discovered a man dressed as Santa Claus ring a bell over and over again. He had a Delibird with him that was holding open a bag for donations. The Pokemon and bearded man gave her a friendly wave as she passed. She glanced back over her shoulder, wondering if it was a scam or not.... Not really any of her business she supposed--they were leaving her alone. But she shoved her hands deeper in her coat pocket none-the-less.

While the trio were passing a few shops along the way, a display of shining Christmas ornaments in one such window caught Scrap’s attention. She peered into the frosted glass, watching the light catch on the slowly spinning cuts of glass shaped like Pokemon. Raising up onto her toes, she looked past the display to the inside of the shop. She was sure she couldn’t afford the shiny ones, but it seemed they had others. ”Why here? What about breakfast?” Bones whined as Scrap pushed open the door to enter. ”We’ll get food soon enough, I want to look in here.” The Vullaby clicked her beak pathetically.

Scrap browsed the wall of ornaments carved of wood, finding a Riolu and plucking if from its hook. ”Don’t apologize for gracing me with your presence.” Scrap turned to look at a Christmas tree that was set up to show off more baubles and trinkets for decoration. A man was there and it seemed he and the woman in a black and white patterned coat had gotten into each other’s way. She quirked a brow at his smooth speech. ”I should apologize, I’m obviously in your way.” The girl noted that the man didn’t move despite what he said. ”You wanted this one, right?” The child snorted at the display as he handed the woman a round, lavender and black ornament. ”Adults.” She mumbled to herself as she moved to the counter to pay.
