Off Route 35, Where the Nido led the Other
The two Nidoran continue into the bushes, leading the larger Nido to higher terrain. As the trio gets past the forestline, Yarne might sense that there are various other Nidos hidden all around.
Yarne: <...You weren't kidding about there being a lot of you.>
The two Nidoran nod at unison and drive Yarne into a trail, through it and off into a much denser part of the forest where there are various berry trees. Though there are also a number of Nidos eating the berries.
Miska: <You’ll have to eat what you can grab. It’s nom time so that means the one who wins wins.>
With that, she looks as her still unnamed sibling plucks a Pecha berry from a tree and is about to nom it, then she tackles him out of the way.
<Like this o3o> -- grabs the berry for herself.
Yarne: <O-okay, I'll try!>
He spies a Nanab Berry bush and goes for it, trying to pluck some fruits and eat them.
Nidoran -still face on the ground: <That’s the way!>
While he struggles to get up, Miska goes to sit by Yarne and stares at him.
Miska: <Oh and you still have not told us where you are from. Are you with a Trainer?>
Yarne: <Well, I do have a trainer, yeah. Se apparently was born in the city around here.>
<But for where I'm from… I'm from… another world or something. Thanks to that big hole in the sky.>
Nidoran -walks in, wiping the mud from his whiskers: <Told you he was TOTALLY not a guard!>
The female nods at the mention of the holes in the sky; though then she turns around and sees, as would Yarne, that the various Nidos around them have taken note of the mention of the holes and there are various Nidos eyeing Yarne cautiously.
The younger male just shrugs at that and turns to them.
Nidoran: <Hey, what do you care? He’s a friend who came from the road, so it’s not like we are getting in trouble.>
One of the other Nidoran around approaches fast and before Yarne can do anything she scratches him on one leg.
Yarne is Scratched and recoils back.
Yarne: <Ah! Hey! I d-don't wanna fight! I don't wanna go extinct!>
The random female angrily screeches at him.
Random Nidoran♀ <Hey I want my experience! Parents said you can get lots of experience fighting trained Nidoran like you!>
Miska facepaws visibly and turns to Yarne.
Miska: <Okay first you are not going to go exact or whatever you said. This GIRL> -- turns to the smaller female and Leers at her -- <is just being annoying! Scram! It’s food time!>
The other female stands in her place, prompting Miska and the male sibling to both facepaw.
<Anyway, look Yarne you might have to get used to some things. There’s many Nidoran around here and most of them want to learn to fight like their parents.>
Yarne: <Not exact! Extinct! Like, no more of me around any more.>
<Though… yeah, true, battles here don't seem to be as… potentially deadly as back home.>
Soon as that’s said tho Yarne might notice a sudden silence has taken over the place. Almost all of the random Nidoran have stopped eating and are now staring at him, some of them hushing and commenting on what’s going on.
A random Nidoran male, just a bit larger than Miska’s sibling, walks up to the group and calls for Yarne’s attention.
Another Nidoran: <Wait wait, you mean like, there can be places with no Nidoran?>
<That sounds ridiculous!> - Another female speaks.
<Only the city has less Nidoran,> complains another male.
<I’m too young to not exist!> - starts crying a female.
Yarne sees the distress the other Nidos are going through, but decides he should probably continue.
Yarne: <Well, uh… yeah, where I'm from, almost all of my kind were killed off. I know a bit about warrens but… nothing like you all have here.>
Another, somewhat disheveled Nidorino from the group approaches and sits with the group.
Random Nidorino: <Well, we.. thought you said you were Trained so we thought you… fought a lot?> -- the other Nidos nod in unison -- <Battles between Trainers are hard, but I hear they are not bad…>
Miska -looks around then takes on a more serious stance: <In reality, around here it is only the Guardians who fight harsh and bloody.>
Yarne: <Oh, that's good. I… guess I have fought a lot, but most of that was before I was trained… Used to be more like what the Guardians go through. Glad it isn't gonna be like that… Guess I could try and show my stuff if anyone wants if it's not gonna be that bad.>
A few of the Nidos gather around at the mention of a fight, their attention caught. They start yelling and prodding and running circles around both Yarne and some of the other Nidorinos around, chanting for a fight.
Random Nidorino -sweatdrops: <Now now, not here I don’t think it’s a good idea…>
Random Nidoran♀ <Wheeeee~ Then somewhere else! Let’s go~>
Everymon: <FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!>
The other Nidos soon join in the chorus and start poking the larger Nidos and Yarne to head off to the hills to the east.
Yarne chuckles nervously and heads over to the indicated area.
