WELCOME TO CAECUS TOWN
LOCAL INFORMATION
Local Pokémon: Starly Flabébé Mime Jr. Snubble Cleffa
With flower boxes lining every street, polished white stone buildings towering in the air and dozens of Flabébé floating gently through the breeze, Caecus is a fairy-type lover's paradise, filled with Pokémon who have grown extremely used to human contact. Feral Snubbull are often simply adopted from off the streets, while Mime Jr.s and Cleffas collect the scraps fallen from the opulent outdoor dining tables of overpriced cafes. Caecus' official bird is Starly.
Both larger and more heavily populated than its sister-town of Campana, Caecus is just on the verge of being deemed a true city, complete with the corruption and greed to go with the title. Researchers will feel right at home with the local focus on TMs, performance-enhancing drugs, and less than legal training techniques, while trainers themselves may be interested in the recently installed Fairy-type gym, which boasts both its challenge and high fashion. Driving their prosperity through transport, clothing manufacturing, and a black market linked directly to Piscari, Caecus is a home-away-from-home for those less than inclined to follow the word of the law. Its original population is largely light-skinned, with a mix of French and British dialects.

Dratini Egg (Incubated) 2/40


Zane entered the back room of the store, an egg nestled carefully in his arms. He called a greeting to his Pokemon as the various fish broke through the surface of the water. Before stopping to say hello properly, he moved over to the hatching tank and slipped the egg into the its warm depths. Once settled gently on the bottom, he returned to the waist high tank. ”Hello, my darlings. How are we this morning?” He ran a hand or grazing fingers over each who wished for the contact.

”You guys ready for breakfast? I’m sure you are.” What had started as mild waves through the water turned to more excitable churning and splashing. ”Alright alright, you lot are gonna make a mess.”

Dratini Egg (Incubated) 4/40


He headed over to the cabinet to open their food containers and begin their breakfast routine. He’d had to adjust it, again, with the addition of new fish, but they were all getting the hang of it and he was fairly sure he wouldn’t need to adjust it again unless he got some sort of special case Pokemon. With his luck, it would be one of Azelia’s monstrosities. But at least she was good at tending to her own schools.

Once they were fed, he returned to the cabinet, glancing at his newly acquired egg as he passed the heated tank. He’d certainly been spending a lot of money on new Pokemon lately, but he was being mindful of his pocket book and budget.

The newest addition should help in that aspect, or at least Zane hoped. He’d gone and gotten another Dratini and was hoping it would be a female. He preferred specializing in unique Magikarp, but despite some of the beauties he was creating, the karp Pokemon simply didn’t sell or much unless he was lucky enough to get a gold one. Out of his dozen or so breedings thus far, he’d only managed one completely gold one and another that was partial. He’d kept the partial in hopes of passing some of those genes down, but it was not working in his favor.

He’d spent hours reconsidering his breeding program and what his breeding goals was. He had a plan now, a image to reach for, but he needed something in the meantime to ensure his business didn’t struggle too much over his dithering. A splash of water garnered the man's attention and he turned to see Opal pushing an egg to the surface of the water. Smiling, the man took it, thanking the karp, and placed it in the hatchery.

Dratini Egg (Incubated) 8/40
Magikarp Egg (Incubated) 4/5


With the newest egg added to the tank, his mind returned to his thoughts that, hopefully, stable income was something the Dratini could help with. They were rare and beautiful Pokemon, often sought after by trainer and coordinator alike. If he could breed them, it would help tremendously. He already had a male, but had been unable to secure a female. The closest he had come was the egg. Now he just has had to cross his fingers and hope he got a girl. If he didn’t? He supposed he could sell the male and try again. Or maybe contact that breeder friend of Matilda’s….didn’t he have a Ditto?

Zane shook his head, realizing he’d been standing next to the food cabinet and lost in his thoughts. Shutting the doors, he turned back to the room and tried to recall what else he was needing to work on that morning.

He tapped a finger lightly on the incubated tank, searching his mind for his to do list. He still has another hour or so before the store opened. He wouldn’t be doing cleaning until later in the evening--oh, right! He was going to sit down and work on the layout for the water feature he was adding to the outside of the building. His tank structure was massive, close to three thousand gallons all together, but with the constant addition of Pokemon--not to mention the possibilities of evolution--he needed to be thinking ahead.

He sat down at the desk--shoved against the far side of the room to help keep it from wayward water guns--and pulled his notepad out that he’d been working on. It was a necessary expansion, yes, but it did mean more money.

Dratini Egg (Incubated) 12/40


Zane tapped his pencil on the spine of the notebook, brain working as he looked at the numbers. Well, there wasn’t much to it. He would just need to do most of the manual labor himself. That would save him a lot of money, that was for sure. His eyes lingered over to the egg for a moment, long enough to silently ask that it be a girl, before returning to his task at hand.

Decision about the labor made, he flipped the page back to the sketch of his design. He spent some time looking at it, erasing a little here, making an adjustment or note here, changing things back occasionally as he worked away on it. Once he was done it was going to be beautiful and it would only add to the appeal of the store, he was sure of that. Investments. Most of his money in the beginning needed to be going toward things that would build and set up the business for the future.

Key Item: Dowsing Machine


The hour seemed to pass by in no time and the alarm on his phone was sounding. Pulling the device from his pocket, he silenced the alarm and check the dowsing machine app for a moment before putting the phone to sleep and returning it to his pocket. He decided the egg would be best left in the heated tank back here while he dropped in the tills to the registers and let the morning workers in.

He didn’t have many employees, mainly him, Azelia, Raven, and three others since the business was still building. He spent a little time with the cashier going over numbers and any other important information she should know to pass on. While she tended to things up front, he would handle stuff in the rest of the store.

Dratini Egg (Incubated) 16/40


While going through freight and putting out some new items, he came across the portable incubator that was specifically used in the water--the same one he had tried out at Azelia’s just a few days previous. It has seemed to do the job, but he’d almost forgotten about it since back at his own hatching tank. Advertising product had been on his list of things to do to increase business….

The Magikarp breeder returned to the back, found his portable incubation pod and retrieved the Dratini egg from the tank. He brought it back out with him, stopping and letting a little girl touch the pretty egg with an indulgent smile. ”Well, thank you for saying hello, but I need to put it back in the water with it’s incubator.” He waved and continued on his way to the fountain near where he was working feight.

Zane attached the little pod to the egg and slipped it carefully into the clear fountain. Opal and Carnelian joined him in that fountain, gently lipping at the egg. ”Easy there girls, don’t knock that off. It’s suppose to warm the water around it and help it hatch. Think you two can help keep an eye on it? Make sure it doesn’t get too hot?” The karp bobbed their bodies in the closest rendition of a nod as they could.

Chuckling, he traced his fingers over their fins before returning to his shelves. He’d never really left an egg in their care for very long, preferring to put it in the warmer hatchery to ensure it’s proper care and that the new karp wasn’t overwhelmed or bullied by the others.

The back stock didn’t take too long to go through, this was both good and not so good. On one hand, he would have time to see to other tasks, but on the other, fewer items to restock meant that not many were sold, but he tried not to look too deeply into that. The business was fine, really. Everything in the green, he was just a worrier. Thinking of worrying, he checked on the egg but the girls were doing a fine job. Opal was staying half curled around it while Carnelian swam in circles to keep the other curious water types away.

Except Pearl, who was busy rolling another egg through the water and toward the pair of females. Zane chuckled, grabbing another incubator pod and heading over to the fountain to set it up. His name being called had the fish hobbyist looking up and toward the front where the cashier was trying to get his attention. Standing next to the register was a delivery man. Zane racked his brain for what he was expecting as he made his way up there.

The blonde recalled just as he got up there that he had tried ordering some technical machines to sell, but they were difficult to get a hold of. His lips split into a pleases smile. ”You have just made my day, you have no idea.” The man smiled in returned, albeit a little nervously since he wasn’t sure how to take the warmth in the handsome man’s voice. ”Umm, I’m glad?” Zane laughed softly, taking the offered pad to sign for the box. ”You have a wonderful day.” He winked at the flustered man before taking the box from the counter and moving to the empty register.

Once the delivery man was gone, the cashier glanced to Zane and shook her head. ”You are terrible.” The rancher looked up innocently. ”Whatever do you mean, my dear?” Instead of answering, she just shook her head someone. ”What’s in the eggs?” She asked, standing on her tip toes to spy the two eggs Zane had just left with a third being added by the new Feebas.

Zane gave a proud little jaunt of his head at her question. "A Dratini! Well, one of them, anyway. The others are, presumably, Magikarp." He added, not seeing the Feebas adding her own egg to the little clutch. He opened the box and dug through the packing peanuts, the little Styrofoam pieces popping out of the box as he did so. He pulled the carefully wrapped TMs from the box, removing the bubble-wrap and examining them. Satisfied with the shipment, he carefully packed them back away and lifted the box. He'd need to put it in the back for the time being until he got a display set up for them.

Jago had never seen a store quite like this. It reminded him more of an aquarium than a pet store. The floor was run through with streams covered in acrylic and seemed to lead to two fountains on either side of the store and the massive tank that was essentially the back wall of the building. Kan walked next to him, fascinated by the fish swimming under the floor. But aside from the displays, there were plenty of other things that were interesting. His nose twitched as it took in some tantalizing scents. The others would have enjoyed it too, but Tatsu, Tenka, and Raiden (with the lucky egg) were all in their balls resting after training--not to mention he wasn't sure about controlling all of them at once.

From his spot on the Lucario's shoulders, Shito eyes were large as he looked around. He was even more enthralled by the water and brightly colored fish. He tugged lightly on Kan's ear and pointed toward one of the fountains. The dual type obliged and heading over to the water display. There were two Magikarp circling a cluster of colorful eggs. "Ooo, look Kan! They're so pretty!" The Ralts leaned forward over the water, making the Lucario reach up to steady the fairy.

Zane lifted the box and headed toward the back, pausing to blink at the fountain where the two female Magikarp were still guarding the egg. One, two, three...four and five? When did the other two show up? He shrugged, thinking that he should very much be getting use to eggs just popping up by now. He stepped easily around some customers, flashing a charming smile as he went before disappearing into the back.

When he came back onto the floor, he spotted a young man with lavender hair peering into the fountain at the eggs. Opal and Carnelian were watching him carefully, gills flaring. The dark blonde stepped up next to the teenager. "Good morning! Anything I can help you find?"

The teenager followed the two over, leaning forward a little to get a better look into the water. The variety in which Pokemon eggs came was still astounding to him. By the way the Magikarp were circling them, his guess would be that's what they were. The flash of bright scales caught his attention and his blue eyes widened. That Magikarp had gold edging on it's scales. He's never seen anything like it.

Jago looked up from where they were admiring the partial shiny and flashed a friendly smile. "Morning! We're not looking for anything in particular, no. This store is stunning. I'm guessing this all custom work?" He turned from the fountain to face the man properly, sparing a glance to the Ralts to be sure he wasn't in danger of falling in.

Choy stepped into the store, brow quirked with interest at the as he took in the giant tank at the back. He let out a low whistle. He knew Caecus like to make a statement, but he had not expected a place like this. During one of his many weekly trips from Piscari to Uberrime, the poacher decided he'd had a craving for more canolis from Fairy Cakes. While he was in town, why not stop by and pick up some things for his Pokemon? He was nearly out of the lotion for Sugar's skin and he's promised Baby-doll a new chew toy.

The Croagunk was on one side of him, holding the end of his braid, while the the young Mawile was on the other holding his hand--well, he was holding her hand. Precious was in her usual spot tucked in his jacket while Angel rested in her Pokeball. Babydoll was practically bouncing with excitement and he didn't put it past her to rush off. With how slow the dual type frog moved, it would be a task to catch up to her. She tugged at his hand impatiently. "Alrigh', alrigh', we're going."
