WELCOME TO AGRI TOWN
LOCAL INFORMATION
Local Pokémon: Doduo Watchog Tauros Bouffalant Miltank Herdier
A ranch town at its core, Agri is full of hoofed beasts of burden, almost all of which are domesticated. Tauros and Bouffalant are kept in tight herds for their meat, while Miltank sprawl in larger pens for their healing milk. Herdier work to keep the herds in check, while Dodrio and Rapidash are ridden by ranchers. Agri's official bird is Doduo.
Populated and maintained almost entirely by farmers and ranchers, Agri is booming with the breeding trade, with its citizens employing the bartering system when it comes to pawning off crops and meat for labor. Although trainers are generally looked down upon as less useful than breeders or the aforementioned farmers, they may be interested in the town's Normal-type gym, which also accepts a hard month's work in exchange for a badge, rather than the usual fighting spree. Almost all of Agri's native population is black, with dialects primarily stemming from an African origin, including Somali, Berber, Yoruba, and Swahili.
CURRENT EVENTS:
Watchog have officially become invasive pests in Agri Town! They seem to be here to stay.

There was an old man standing by the signpost as Pret and Alci approached from the north. He beckoned them over, grinning wide and toothless. Pret didn't sense any maliciousness from him, so he set Alci down and let the Cubone stick near his leg as he walked over.

He greeted the man with a respectful wai. "Grandpa, what can I do for you?" Pret asked, guarded against the old man's intentions. The crossroads had him uneasy.

Pret's concerns were waved off with a sharp dismiss. "Ach, it's my grandson, Talib. These old bones can't help him anymore. And he's too hard-headed to admit he needs help. He took over Imari Ranch." The old man pointed a curled finger off down the road, closer to Agri. "He needs to fix it up. I can't do it – these old bones – he needs me – "

Alci tugged at Pret's pant legs again, urging him to follow her in the other direction. But Pret didn't falter from the man as his voice began to deepen and he curled in on himself, holding his arms. "Hey now, gramps. We've got you covered." While he spoke, Pret swung Alci into his arms. The cubone never took her eyes off the man as he trembled before them. "Stop worrying," Pret stressed, in a way speaking to both the man and pokemon.

Pret's main concern was warning this man away from his negative emotions before they consumed him. "You did right by your grandson, I'm sure. We'll help," Pret continued, seeing the man's body begin to solidify once more.

"He's a good boy. Just hard headed," he murmured.

Pret waved his hands. "Like you, huh?"

The man's shoulders eased back and he straightened himself into a laugh, showing off that toothless grin once more. "Yes, yes."

"Then you know how it is," Pret said. "You did good, letting us know," he repeated, and began moving off down toward Agri. Alci put her head into the crook of Pret's chest, small tremors shaking through her body. "Try to take it easy and relax, hey, Grandpa?" Pret called over his shoulder by way of both a warning and a farewell. He'd have to swing back around this way to make sure the spirit had found some peace in their efforts.

Before that, he had to make sure the grandson had also paid the proper respects. Something was keeping the grandfather around, and Pret intended to find out what.

When the spirit was out of range and the crossroads no longer visible, Alci began to ease up on her shakes. Still, she kept her head tucked into the crook of Pret's chest until they had passed a few travelers and had come upon the ranch. "Wow. Might have our work cut out for us."

There was evidence that someone was hard at work, at least attempting to maintain the place. Fence posts had been pulled up out of the ground, their bases rotted and having been eaten away by Bug Pokemon, time and environmental exposure. Some of the rails were bowed from exposure, if not outright splintered in two. There were several large buildings on the property, most in need of a paint job. It seemed as if someone had started getting one of the smaller barns repainted, but had stopped halfway through the wall with the fresh paint contrasting against the worn and thinning, older layer.

The one point of evident pride was the sign post declaring the Imari ranch to the world, with a glazed pottery bowl held in place above the sign. The bowl was glazed in a tinted red, with an image of a mountain shrouded in mists and a river cutting through the surrounding valley.

In the field in front of what Pret assumed was the main house, a man was huddled over stalks of grass that stretched to his waist. He was pulling up clods of the weeds by the fistfuls, while a Herdier stood on watch behind him. It had already seen Pret and Alci's approach, and was standing at alert to notify its trainer.

Pret, holding Alci in one arm and wary of the guarding Herdier, held up a hand to his mouth. "Hello, Talib Imari?"

The Herdier barked out once, and the man straightened, wiping sweat with his forearm. "Who wants to know?"

Pret waited for the man to close the distance between them before informally nodding. "Name's Pret Segaki. I was sent your way to help out." Pret remained vague. Most people didn't like hearing that passed family members were looking out for them and sending strangers their way.

But that didn't seem necessary. Talib's eyes lit up. "For the job posting?" Pret nodded, still being vague. "Well, you're not who I thought I'd get around these parts, but I'm in need of hands. That all you have?" Talib nodded toward Alci.

Pret tapped a finger on her bone cap. "She's the most diligent worker I've ever seen," Pret said. "Your fellow seems like a good guard."

Talib laughed. "Daisy tries her best to be tough looking, but she's got nothing on her mother. Big boots to fill, that one. Speaking of." Talib removed one of his gloves and held out a hand to shake. "Talib Imari. This used to be my grandfather's farm, in case you didn't know. Just moved in a few months myself." Pret returned the shake. "You here for the long haul, or did you just think a day or two?"

"As long as you need. Not more than a month."

Talib apparently liked the sound of that, a smile smacking across his face. "That'll do just fine. You know what, I need a break. Let's get you settled in." Talib glanced at Pret's person. "You live in the area, that all you have?"

Pret adjusted his pack with his free hand. "That's all I need."

"Well, come along this way then." The path up to the house wound itself through a front garden that looked to be mostly for flowers. These had gotten out of hand, even with the early and brief warmth of the season, having not been pruned back in the winter. Growths sprouted between the rock pathways and vines stretched out to scratch at passing exposed legs.

Even the stairs leading up to the door – which was in need of a paint or staining – were cracked and hazardous. Talib leaned heavily into the door to unjam it before offering it for his guest to enter. "This place hasn't changed since I was a kid," he said, tone light. "Not sure if that's a bad thing or a good thing."

In the corner of the living room was a Stoutland, her muzzle greyed and eyes covered with cataracts. She growled at Pret's intrusion, but Talib called out to her. "S'all right girl, just me and a friend." Pret didn't know about being called a friend, but it soothed the elderly Pokemon's nerves some and she rested her muzzle on her paws, tail thumping on the hardwood. Pret removed his shoes and placed them on a nearby rack while putting Alci down. "Stay out of trouble and stick close," he said.

The kitchen was in the back of the house, as Talib lead Pret there. All the while, Pret looked for signs of a shrine in the house, or a place it could be hidden away. It definitely wasn't the kind of thing one lead with – 'Hey, your grandfather is still hanging around why aren't you letting him know you're doing well?' Pret had tried to be forward once. And once is all it took the learn that lesson.
