SPOOKY SCARY SKELETONS

Its that time of year for a bit of trick or treating but you'll find a mountain of sweet treats here this year! We've got Unique Moves for your Pokemon and even a few to sate any appetite. All lasting until November 13th. Have a fun and safe holiday this year!

Mimikyu here is used to tricking all kinds of people into thinking its a cute little Pikachu until its too late but today its making up for all those tricks by handing out some great treats to users all around the site. First off there are 2 treats to pick up today: a Unique Move for a Pokemon of your Choice and a random Sweet Treat! This event is going on a whole 2 weeks so you don't have to rush and get everything done right away. Take your time, everyone will get all the goodies they can hope for. Lets start with the Unique Move shenanigans.

Spooky Unique Move
Below is a list of Spooky Moves one of your characters can use to get a Unique Move for one of their Pokemon! To get your new move you have to fill out the form with your OOC Account below stating which Character and Pokemon you'll give this move to as well as which Move you are choosing. Staff will roll a d3 to determine which column you are to choose from. If staff roll a 1 you choose from column 1. If they rolled from a 3 you choose from 3. There is no changing the roll so you must take from the column provided.

▼Click Here for Move List▼


Sweet Treat
In the same post you'll also include a paragraph or two with your character celebrating Halloween or a similar Holiday in their Culture (if you are unsure what your character's home town celebrates on October 31st consult the spoiler-ed list! Otherwise the character can celebrate in a way that is akin to their own personal lifestyle or simply Halloween if you want to simplify things.). It doesn't need to be long but this character will be sent a random treat that staff rolls. This does NOT need to be the same character who got the Unique Move, its all up to you. The treats are as followed:

  1. 3 Link Berries
  2. 1 Sweet Honey
  3. 1 Rare Candy
  4. 1 Poké Snack
  5. 1 Revive
  6. 3 Random Gems
Your post can be about anything you want. What kind of costume they'd wear, if they go to a haunted house or not, if they'd carve pumpkins or perhaps just buy a plastic pumpkin to keep from getting messy. All kinds of things can be celebrated!

Now as for how the different Ho'ohiki Cities celebrate here is a list on how each city chooses to celebrate this time of year!

▼Halloween City List Here▼

Okeanos is a complete and utter tourist trap. They celebrate Halloween much like people in America do. There is even a large cargo ship stationed int he harbor turned into a haunted house!

Piscari Natives celebrates this time of year in a big way. Ghost Pokemon are known to flock the city in what a lot of the older natives believe are the souls of those killed in the Wrath of Lugia (the Hurricane that destroyed Piscari and Hudor 10 years ago). Younger folks and outsiders tend to take this time to catch the Ghost Pokemon to sell to Boss or take them to the Pokemon Fights deep within the city. Many people treat this holiday similarly to the Day of the Dead in Mexican culture today where altars are made, where possible, and favorite food is offered to those who died from the Wrath or since in the violence of Piscari.

Hudor Reef celebrates in similar ways to Piscari and it is one time of year when Hudor pays its respects peacefully to Piscari as they share a bond in how families died in the calamity of the Wrath. It is also not uncommon for Hudor to build small rafts with lights on them and send them out to sea in honor of the departed.

Procella Prairie natives are rarely in the rainy grassland this time of year and often celebrate in similar ways to those in the cities they work and live in the rest of the year. Like the Romani people they have an odd affinity for death where they wish it away quite vehemently, having been known to burn the belongings of those who have passed away. Instead they have a silent respect for death.

Campana worship a form of Samhain designed to keep Darkrai and other Ghosts at bay while also helping their own deceased loved ones find the afterlife so they are not trapped in Ho'ohiki only to become Ghost Pokemon. Families have grand feasts together where they leave a plate at the table full with food while they eat in silence. Once the meal is done they set the plate outside in honoring the spirits. There are also bonfires that go up to guide the spirits away from the town. Campana natives believe this time of year is when all kinds of dark spirits roam the town most heavily and they stay away from the Route or risk being deceived by a spirit or faerie pretending to be a Pokemon and never being seen from again. A big way to prevent these spirits from tormenting them alone are Turnip Lanterns created the day before and set out on doorsteps and windowsills to ward away these evil spirits and Darkrai itself.

Caecus makes a big show of Halloween. The shops sell out of all kinds of Pokemon costumes and quite a few people costumes too and unofficial Pokemon Contests go on all across town as people show off their newly gilded Pokemon. While the awards and money won in these contests won't get you anywhere in the Contest circuit it brings a lot of fame to those who win. Because there is such a draw to win these events, it is also one of the highest times of year for Pokemon to be abused or abandoned by trainers looking to make a quick buck.

Agri doesn't always celebrate on October 31st as their big celebration comes with the Full Moon but this year they coincide together to create an amazing Harvest Moon festival. Barn Dances, star gazing, large feasts, all of these are ways Agri celebrates a good and hearty harvest. There is live music played in the the Auction Barn turned Community Grounds where all sorts of local foods are made to be eaten for free in order to show off the great food that has been harvested this year.

Odonton Natives views this time of year as their own day to respect the deaths caused by the cold harsh mountains. Everyone from Natives to unfortunate Tourists are mourned. Men dress up in elaborate Abomasnow pelts while women wielding carved Piloswine tusks as they wear their pelts. Using PIloswine fur, children are also known to dress up as Swinub while teenage boys dress as Snover. Inside the Community Center there are private dances and feasts that tourists and non-natives are not allowed to take part in. At just before dawn, the natives gather outside in the cold snow to put flower wreaths on Wild but amicable Bravairy who are then fed grain and meat while being whispered the names of the dead. Then as dawns light crests over the mountain the Bravairy are sent to fly and take the spirits of the people who passed with them into the afterlife. Its one of the only rituals that is kept wholly private away from the tourists who want to more than anything be part of the picturesque and, in their eyes, macabre moment.

Uberrime is all in an uproar over Halloween and celebrates heavily every year. Costume parties abound with adults wearing skimpy and at times rather unfortunate outfits and kids dressed up as their favorite cartoon or real life heroes. Trick or Treating is had with in Malls or whole Apartment Complexes to prevent kids from wandering the streets alone. While late night parties full of drunken games that lead to sloppy bobbing for apples is had for the adults. Halloween in Uberrime is what we imagine any big city this time of year is like, people having a ton of fun and being a little more safe about it than what we know our world to be (sloppy bobbing for apples certainly leads to them calling a taxi later on).

Stipes is well known for their celebration. While the Dana Festival draws in more of a crowd in their thanks to the Legendary "Gods", the celebration of the dead is, in comparison, quaint and quiet. Stipes believes in two major ways of burial, cremation for your average day native of Stipes and sky-burials in the deep woods for Wardens and Council Members (where the individual is left to the elements, namely the large resident collection of Murkrow and Bug-Types). Through this Stipes believes an individual who is at unrest turns into a Ghost Pokemon to join the many living thorough the town and the neighboring woods. The course of this day is in honor and hope that those who are Ghost Pokemon find rest and happiness in their new life so that when it is over they can find eternal rest in the afterlife. Food and incense is placed on family shrines as well as the shrines out in the woods and Ghost Pokemon with attractions to certain families, believed to be ancestor spirits, are brought into homes to be pampered.


Form
You will fill out what you can but we don't expect you to fill out the Spooky Unique Move section until staff posts telling you your number. So feel free to leave that part blank and focus on the Sweet Treat entry. Staff will post with your Column number and you will edit your post with things like Character Name and Move then. Remember to fill this out and post with your OOC Account with your character's proper Username filled out. If that means just the first name then leave the first name. If it means first and last or even first middle last then put the WHOLE THING.

Sweet Treat
Character Name: Kerr Varman
Halloween Story:
Kerr wore his bright red coat, signifying he was a Ranger. With it he was just going to see to the door and make sure no nosy tourist tried to slide in to film something they had no right to be filming. Problem was his fellow locals were bidding him to join them with a pull of the arm and sweet words. It had been a long time since he donned the ceremonial garb and spent a night dancing. He remembered it as a child, wearing a Snover hat and twirling and shouting in his native tongue. However since he lost his eyesight he rarely took part in these kinds of rituals, simply preferring to stand guard and listen to everyone having fun.

Someone put an Abomasnow mask in his hands while he felt more hands ushering him away from the door and this time he went willingly, putting on the mask that impeded him a little, muffling the sounds he used to see but then like a looking through a movie camera, Muir shared the image of him donning the gloves and chest piece and legs of the Abomasnow, the others already dancing. He was rusty he insisted, not quite capable of doing this but the woman who was helping him argued the contrary. He had heard every step they made, he knew how to do this.

It would be a long night of dancing in mourning, Kerr knew, but it was a good year to start again, to be part of his people again.

Sweet Treat
Character Name: Alexis Nyte
Halloween Story:

Alexis adjusted the brown, fur pelts draped across her shoulders and looked in the mirror again. It had been nearly six months since she had left home to start her career as a lone Ranger, but the teenager had decided to return to Odonton to observe their version of all hallows eve. Many found some of their rituals to be rather depressing, mostly tourists and non-natives, but the event held a even more special place in her heart since four years ago. A sound at the doorway made her turn and she smiled at her mother. The older woman joined her daughter at the mirror--their outfits were similar except where Kass had green wool accents, Alexis had blue. "I'm so happy you were able to make it back." She commented, giving the teenager's shoulder a squeeze.

Alexis patted her mother's hand. "I wouldn't miss it, Mom." When the two women turned to exit the room, Singe lifted his head up from where he had been laying on the redhead's bed. Alexis looked back at the Growlithe. "Sorry, Singe. You can come, but it has to be in the Pokeball or you can stay here." The fire type considered her offer before getting to his paws and hopping off of the bed. Alexis's lips curved into a simper, not at all surprised with his choice. Slipping the Pokeball from her pocket, she recalled the canine to it, and returned it to its place. The scarred teenager looked back at her mom just as the older Ranger held out her ceremonial carved tusk. "We better go."

~~~

There was divide in Alexis's life; a barrier in time that separated who she was now and who she use to be. When she was little, she had loved the parties in the Community Center; running around like a little hooligan and nearly eating herself sick during the feast. She didn't really understand the Flight of the Braviaries, but she loved making the wreaths and feeding the majestic birds before sending them off into the sunrise. This ritual was one of the many reasons she had wanted a Braviary herself. Then Snowfur happened. The people around her were understanding and supportive, even if they didn't all know the details. Her friends tried reconnecting with her, but Alexis wasn't interested. Her body healed quickly compared to her spirit and even then it was changed. Nothing existed beyond becoming a Ranger and finding the poacher responsible for Snowfur. The subsequent years during hallows eve celebration, she attended them, but did not dance or socialize. She stood vigilantly waiting for wee hours of the morning so she could whisper the Beartic's name to a Braviary. Alexis knew she should be saying the names of travelers and Odonton residents lost during that year, and she would, but she always sent a wish for Snowfur and her cubs' spirits.

~~~

This was the first year in many that she had a second reason for being eager to tend to the Braviaries. Alexis gingerly carried her flower wreath as they made their way through the snow and toward the gathered eagles. She had spend hours the day before making the circlet of flowers, colored twine, and feathers. Feathers were not a traditional part of this wreath, but wanted some part of Boreas in it. The teenager had little reason beyond her hope that the Rufflet's father would among the birds that morning, but she found herself wishing for it. She wanted to let the scarred valiant Pokemon know how well his son was doing and to thank him again for trusting her. She couldn't imagine her life without the curious, out-going avian and the things she had done since leaving would not have been possible. Alexis wasn't certain how she would know him on sight, but she had to try. Her mother looked at her curiously as she moved along the line of grand winged-Pokemon, bowing her head in respect as she passed each.

It turned out not to be her skills of observation to help her find him, but the recognition in his own eyes when she headed toward him. Her smile spread slowly, getting closest to beaming as she ever did, and bowed her head as she stopped in front of him. The redhead offered her loop of foliage and plumes, slipping it over his crested head when he allowed. She spoke quietly to the avian as she fed him bits of meat and hands of grain, telling him about his son and some of the adventures they had been through. When it was time to send the Braviaries off with their names, she whispered a few souls lost that year to the harsh mountain. Her last name this year was the same as every year previous since her cruel death; Snowfur.

Sweet Treat
Character Name: Gwy Kerr
Halloween Story:
Máthair = Mother
Nanna = Grandmother
Seanathair = Grandfather

Gwyn paused in the doorway to his parents kitchen, choosing to watch his Máthair as she bustled around preparing that evening's feast. Later there would be a bonfire, but for now, there was a feast to fix. There was a time, so long ago, when he viewed Samhain as something fun. But that was before his Nanna and Seanathair passed away, and the true meaning of the holiday made sense. Now, with every turnip carved, he thought of Seanathair, and with every feast he helped with, he thought of Nanna.

"Gwyn. Gwyn!" His Máthair called for his attention and he put his thoughts to the side and stepped fully into the kitchen, ignoring his Máthair's knowing gaze. "Can you dice the vegetables?" she asked, gesturing to the counter where several carrots, potatoes, onions, and others, sat waiting to be diced. Gwyn hid his dislike at the sight of the eggplant, but dutifully moved to begin his assigned task, sweeping his Máthair up in a tight hug as he passed by.

If his numerous adoring fans saw him now, no doubt many would not believe it to be him. Wearing an apron, and with his beloved silver hair bundled up, willingly getting dirty, and openly showing emotion; yes, many would think him to be possessed by a wandering spirit. But to him, this was a chance to spend time with family, to cherish the ones still living just as much as it was to honor the dead. There was no time to be serious and aloof, not here, not when among the most trusted of his heart.

Sweet Treat
Character Name:Tweak
Halloween Story: Tweak just happened to be in Okeanos dropping off some notes, when he realized it was halloween. He hadn't spent much time preparing this year, but he was pretty sure his costume from a few years ago was still in his basement. He went down there with a flashlight, and came back a few minutes later with a huge box. Atom and Sisca tried to peer in it as he opened it, revealing a massive, collapsed Gyarados costume.

He had worn it a few years ago, with a few classmates for a play, but none of them wanted it after. He had kept it, having spent lots of time building it. He brushed it out, and released Roxie and Joltik, who along with Dratini could manage the tail while he controlled the head. The festival and costume party would soon begin on the beach, so after a few moments practic walking, the group took off through the town, winding and slithering their way. Tweak was pretty sure they would win first prize.

Spooky Unique Move
Character Name: Kiara Stone
Pokemon: Thorne the Rockruff
Column Number: 3
Move: Moonlight



Sweet Treat
Character Name: Kiara Stone
Halloween Story:
Kiara watched the flames of the candles in front of her flicker and dance. It was a somber day in Odonton, a day when previously in the past it was happily spent taking part with feasting and celebration. This would not be the first time however that she spent the holiday on her own and it most likely would not be the last. The natives of this town did not let anyone who was not, take part in their sacred rituals. And though the group of willful people knew her enough now to consider her to be a local, a native she was not. No mater how long she lived here, this was one day that made the truth of her origin almost impossible to bear. As unintentional as it would seem, this day revealed her as the outsider that she was.

And so it was once again that Kiara found herself eating chocolate by candle light as she watched the sunrise and wished that tomorrow would come just a tad bit faster. A ritual of her own perhaps as the natives celebrated what strange rituals that they would. What they celebrated she would never know, and their mysteries as tantalizing as it were however would remain unsolved. She was not bitter, only plagued with the ghosts of memories past. As the sun finally began to crest the horizon, it was just too much for her to bare, her hands gripped her ears and her eyes held tightly shut, willing herself to sleep.

(Shes mourning her old life. Melodramatic, I know D:)

Spooky Unique Move
Character Name: Sirhan Saifuddin
Pokemon:
Column Number:
Move:



Sweet Treat
Character Name: Sirhan Saifuddin
Halloween Story:

"Are you Zubatman?"

"Where's Alfred?"

"So is that Ace or Robin?"

Sirhan mentally sighed as he stopped his unmarked patrol car on the sidewalk and got out of the driver's seat posthaste; a Riolu garrishly dressed in red and green while sporting a yellow cape followed in his stead to inspect the body which was laying in the middle of the road.

Halloween in Uberimme was a god damn trip and despite being someone who didn't celebrate it, it was hard to escape the almost Mardi Gras nature of the festivities which brought revelers out onto the streets in their spookiest.
Kids were one thing; The tradition of trick-or-treating was one he'd picked up years ago and it was a delight if only because as a child living below the poverty line, that was one night of the year where candy could be freely procurred and he remembered carefully managing his haul so he had a piece to eat for every day of the next three months.
Adults however had different ideas of what constituted as fun and a good chunk of it if the number of Zombies toppling over trash cans was anything to go by involved drinking.
Lots of it.

It made his nightly patrols---Ranger work didn't stop for the festivities but they could definitely bring the festivites into work---a lot more interesting if not complicated and he kept tabs on the number of people he'd had to call cabs and Gogoat ride services for so they could get home safely.
What they did on their own time was no business of his of course, until they inevitably ended up stumbling downtown into dead end alleys and then it was trick-or-treat for less savory individuals who lurked in the shadows except instead of candy, it was cash and credit and he hoped that this body dressed up like a warlock which twitched as he gently prodded it with a foot hadn't been approached by an aggressive treat-seeker.

"Mmmmmuurrghhh..."
Came the low groan and Saladin stared flatly at the reveler who was making feeble attempts at getting up before directing his gaze to Sirhan in a way that spoke volumes.

Really? Really?

"Come on, it's just one night and don't look at me like that. You my friend look stunning and I need a partner in crime."
Sirhan said with a smirk as he knelt down to help the man get up into a seating position before asking him,

"You doing alright there bro?"

The candy corn-colored vomit that spewed out in reply to his question he barely blinked at as it stained the tarmac and he merely pat the man's back comfortingly.

"There we go, better out than in, trust me."

"Dude."
The man's cross-eyed gaze finally seemed to focus and as he sized up Sirhan who was decked in black from head to toe and sporting a Zubat cowl, everything seemed to come back to him and he frantically felt around his costume for something and then grabbed the Ranger by the shoulders.
"Dude! Someone jacked my balls! I mean my Pokeballs! You gotta help me find them!"

Sirhan massaged the bridge of his nose as he internally lamented for the future of mankind of but Saladin was beaming from ear to ear, elated at finally having gotten a Thing To Do that didn't involve clueless drunks.

"Were you approached by someone? Do you remember anything before you tried to catch twenty winks in the middle of an intersection?"
He inquired as he hauled the man over to the brightly-lit sidewalk where the risk of being run over by a passing car was significantly lower.

"....Some cat in a mask?"
came the confused reply and Sirhan puffed his cheeks out in mild annoyance.

"Broseph, it's Halloween. That's pretty much everybody and their dog, especially their dog."
said the Ranger dryly as he rubbed the fingers of his right hand together in the universal sign for 'more'.
"Give me something to work with here."

"Like white? And---and dark circles around the eyes. You know, like Pangoro. If uh, if Pangoro wore....lipstick? And a...I think green? Green. D-definitely green hair. He just bumped into me! But he thanked me for...something."
The reveler struggled through the description as Sirhan blinked at him a couple of times.

"So what you're saying is that the Joker jacked your buddies."
Sirhan stated, watching as the man held up both hands in a silent 'I guess?' gesture before he stood up and winked at the Riolu who was crackling steely knuckles.
"You heard that, Pup Wonder?"

Saladin nodded eagerly as as he puffed out his chest as Sirhan led the man to the comforts of a nearby convenience store which provided hot food and coffee and stuck a five dollar bill in their hands.

"Stay here, get hydrated. We've got this."
The Ranger assured as he turned around towards the streets with a dramatic billowing of his cape.
When the Rangers had decided on Halloween outfits, they'd jokingly suggested the one he wore now given his preferred prowling grounds of downtown and his somewhat maverick attitude.
He wasn't a rich playboy with no dayjob of course---He was certainly more Spinarakman in that regard---but the thirst for justice was still there and he liked how the ensemble blended with the shadows.
It was a good costume call.

"Wait wait! Who are you?"
The man blurted out from the door of the convenience store as Sirhan threw a glance over his shoulder; That had to have been the first time the costume hadn't been instantly recognized by the public who bombared him with puns about it which was refreshing as he stated simply before heading out to hunt down a Clown Prince of Crime,

"I'm the goddamn Zubatman."

Sweet Treat
Character Name: Alarice Jansen
Halloween Story: Alarice had been working hard on making her own costume. There will be a fashion show in Caecus with a Halloween theme. When she heard about the show she couldn't contain her excitement. She quickly went to buy some fabric for her costume. She had a few ideas in her mind. It was after sketching them she decided which one to make. Alarice decided to go dressed as a sexy litten or make herself a dress. Both of them were rather rather easy outfits. She needed something easy since she didn't have much time for sowing. She heard about the show only two days before the actual date. She decided on making a long white dress for herself. She got a marvelous idea.


Once she was home she quickly went to work. She already had matching shoes, she will wear white heels to match her outfit. It took her several hours of work before she finished her outfit. Alarice already knew her own size and measurements so it went pretty fast. She managed to sow some ruffles near the arms and then made the edges of the dress look nice. Once her outfit was ready she lifted it up and looked at it. 'I will look like a princess in this.' She thought as she hung it before her body and looked at herself in the mirror.


She decided to try it on. 'This looks perfect!' She thought as she reached for Robin's pokeball. She summoned the owl pokemon and then struck a flair pose. "What do you think? Can I pass for a princess?" She asked. Robin looked her up and then and twisted his head to the side. Robin then nodded agreeing with Alarice. Alarice smiled and walked up to Robin and hugged him. "We're going to a fashion show tonight! This is my entry! It's not very extravagant but I didn't have much time." She said explaining why she chose such a simple outfit. Dar trix trix. Robin replied.


Alarice then went to grab the outfit that she made for Robin. "We are going to win this contest." She said as she grabbed a tuxedo and held it up before Robin to see how he will look. "You will look super handsome in your phantom of the opera costume." Alarice said as she grabbed the white half faced mask. Robin sighed at the sight of the costume. O well, it's Halloween he might as well play along. Alarice took a few steps back and looked at Robin. "Don't worry, it will all be worth it when we win. We will definitely win something tonight, if not the first prize!!" She said in an excited voice. The two were ready to go to the fashion contest.

Sweet Treat
Character Name: Andrew Collins
Halloween Story: Andrew loved this period of the year. When he was with his parents they would always celebrate it and do something special. They would dress up in costumes and everything and if they were in a city or in some other populated area they would go trick or treating and some of their pokemon would come along. When Andrew had grown a bit older they would often have little contests and see who would get the most candy...

In the spirit of the celebration that he had with his parents for yeas Andrew had dressed up this year as well. He had managed to find a gengar costume and he had made little mimikyu hats for his pokemon. They started their trick or treating and soon they were joined by kids, adults, and ghost types that wanted to prank others. It was a blast and they had a lot of fun with it.

At the end of the day they would sit down and everyone got their share of the 🍬, humans and pokemon alike.

Spooky Unique Move
Character Name: Nerina
Pokemon: Harper the Noivern
Column Number: 2
Move: Mystical Fire



Sweet Treat
Character Name: Nerina
Halloween Story:

"Agh... I hope this one works..." The sparking match struck harsh, angular shadows against the face of the girl and her large companion before it fell, carving a line in the night before shrinking once again to a point. "This is what we did back home to... call away spirits that need to go home," she explained to Harper, who looked on with curiosity. The match caught against the small pile of kindling — leaves and grass with flowers, dried for their sweet scent — and the dragon leaned forward to blink at it. "Harper, back up. Don't burn your nose."

As the fire from the dry grass and leaves started to catch on larger twigs and the bark of some branches, Nerina stood back and dusted off her hands. "May this light, born of life now past, guide and protect those spirits on their journey." Turning to Harper, she nodded towards the town. "Tonight, we're going to sleep... a little closer to everybody else..." I'm not scared of spirits. I'm a goddamn adult. But... "Just in case."

Spooky Unique Move
Character Name: Nicrosil Guillory
Pokemon: Nisil the Salandit
Column Number: 1
Move: Spirit Shackle



Sweet Treat
Character Name: Shane Mullen
Halloween Story:
The rain was pouring down on the ranger station, lightning crashing every few minutes. The wild storms raged during this time of year, and it hadn't stopped raining for a week straight. The end of autumn always reminded Shane Mullen of a childhood filled with apple cider and bonfires, and in the downpour it felt like lifetimes away.

Despite that, he was dilligently working on carving out some turnips for lanterns with Kalei, his partner pokemon cubone. The rest of the station could look at him like he had grown two heads for all he cared; it was worth making a mess of turnips all over the kitchen table. What was salvageable he made a harvest stew with-- he wasn't a great chef, but it was damn hard to mess up a stew that just involved broth, apple, turnip and potato. The pair of them had spent the whole day working on their lanterns, and the station smelled like vegetables from the stew, but as the dark of the storm turned pitch black with the setting sun well out of sight past the rain, they finally had enough to put in each of the windows.

The cubone's efforts were childlike at best, and Shane's weren't much better... The turnips weren't very large, so mostly just triangle eyes and jagged shapes for mouths would have to do. He took a moment as he lit each one, his thoughts swarming with memories that the sound of rain and thunder didn't help.

There were a lot of ghosts in Smoke's life, and each small candle he set into the turnips would hopefully keep them at bay for Samhain. "Do you think 'Malu's still out in those storms?" He asked Kalei softly, as she lifted up one of her precious carved turnips-- this one was supposed to be a spooky ribcage, maybe? It was hard to tell. Thinking of Koamalu and everyone that was lost to Lugia's Wrath over a decade ago made his hands shake, but... At least he could light a flame for them, for the still lost souls, in hopes that they would be able to find their way home.

And if his mourning attracted any other spirits, may the fires scare them off. Darkrai be damned-- he didn't like to consider himself superstitious, but he had enough haunting him already.

Spooky Unique Move
Character Name: Eamon Finbar
Pokemon: Ralts
Column Number: 3
Move: Nasty Plot



Sweet Treat
Character Name: Eamon Finbar
Halloween Story:
Eamon watched the turnip lanterns with Airmed that they both made the day before. It was Airmed's first celebration of the dead that they perform every year. They were waiting for the group of families that his join to finish with the big fest before traveling over to the neighbor's house. His mother and aunt, his mother's Gardevoir, was over their helping with the meal. Airmed would start to dose off due to watching the flames very intently, but she was suddenly brought back to the world of the living by Eamon shaking her a a little. Eamon would then say, "Hey, our moms are waving us over for dinner." They both would soon here Eamon's father say, "About time, I am starving and we still need to finish setting up the bonfires when we are finished eating."

After dinner, the sun was getting close to setting while Eamon and Airmed would follow his father, uncle Gallade, and a few elderly men that they ate with. They all, except for Airmed, were carrying torches to set the piles of wood that they setup earlier in the day ablaze. Airmed would look at the bonfires as they were started burning at their max in wonder. They were supposed to help the spirits of the dead to pass so that they do not become Ghost-type Pokemon like Yamask and Gastly. That was amazing to Airmed. Soon she would hear a few of the men speak since before dinner to Eamon. They were saying that they hoped that he would make it next year. One comment had her blushing red in the face. That comment was that they hoped that both him and her would grow up enough that she would evolve into a Spunky Kirlia or a Beautiful Gardevoir, and the Gallade that was her sire smiled and nodded. That was extremely embarrassing. Eamon would just laugh off the comments.

On the way back from setting the bonfires ablaze, Airmed would look at each houses' doorsteps and notice a large plate of food. That was something else she could not understand. How could food help the spirits move on? It would be amazing if it did. Eamon would soon pick up Airmed while they were entering his parent's house and go to the window. They both would watch as the final rays of sun vanish to make it officially night. Eamon would say to Airmed, "It is time for bed. We don't want to stay up too much longer or Darkrai may find us." With that Airmed would snuggle up closer to Eamon to make sure she was not snatched away while they slept.
