    Without a place like Iron Island to stay and train in, Riley was unbelievably restless, along with his team. There weren't enough Pokemon or trainers to battle against, so they all were feeling like they were missing something they all loved.

    Sure, Lucario and Riley were still able to practice their aura abilities, but that was only half of what they really loved to do. But there wasn't any real solution to that. The only other person with even one Pokemon was just a young girl who wasn't interested in battling, so they were stuck.

    Well, not stuck in one place. At least they were able to explore the world of Pandora as they wished. It was fun to find different places to learn about what Pandora was really like, and to find little jobs to help out before leaving again. They still missed battling, but it wasn't too bad.

    While they were exploring, they happened across something very strange. Given Riley's upbringing, he wasn't too familiar with farms, but he was pretty sure they were supposed to have people doing work. But a quick scan with his aura was enough to determine that there were only animals that weren't Pokemon there.

    Except for Gyarados, Riley didn't see a reason to keep his team in their pokeballs as they searched the place. Absol stayed close to him as he explored the farmhouse, looking for signs of anyone having lived there, even though he couldn't sense anyone. Salamence was simply flying overhead, enjoying the chance to spread his wings. Rampardos had started slamming her head against a tree, which was very close to falling over. In contrast, Entei was sitting among the grazing cows, looking surprisingly calm and majestic in the field.

    For his part, Lucario was inspecting the flying-type creatures that were clucking in their little pens. Their auras were so bizarre. Even though they were small and calm, they felt powerful. The temptation to start a battle with them was hard to resist; he always wanted to test his abilities against the most powerful opponents. Curiously, he kneeled down and bopped one on the beak, which caused it to start clucking in furious anger and run around. Lucario barked in surprise, and annoyance that it only ran instead of battle.

    What in the hell did Specter walk into as he arrived at the rumored mysterious ranch recently? A Human and some sort of creature who decided to anger the chicken for some reason and he's sure to keep away from the noise. The albino would be laughing out right now at how foolish this is, well, atleast it's not one of him or his Piposarus.

    "Perhaps you should be better off not bothering anyone." he spoke up in a general snarky tone as he sighed before he crossed his arms bemused with a smug smirk across his face.

    Just hope the coop doesn't come over and attack him since he is not in the mood to be part of someone's pecking order.

    Lucario had been so focused on the flying-types that he missed the audience he had apparently gained. A rude audience, trying to imply things. Even though he didn't communicate like a human (or whatever the human-shaped audience was), he could read the mockery on the thing's lips. He sent a message to Riley over their auras, informing him that they weren't alone anymore.

    Riley usually trusted Lucario not to get into trouble when left alone, but he didn't put it past his Pokemon to do some mischief. Being called over because someone was simply there wasn't usual for him, though. He didn't like to call Riley over when there was something he could handle himself.

    Fortunately, it wasn't very far for Riley to walk from the farmhouse over to the coops. Of all the things he was faced with, it was the sight of the bird freaking out due to Lucario's attack that was most frustrating. "I can't leave you alone for two seconds, can I?" he grumbled at him.

    How interesting. Of course, by what is interesting by the albino's crimson hues, he was secretly hoping that the creature didn't belong to the Human. Never trusted the likes of'em, never will. That's Specter's story in a nutshell, however the unpredictable, hypocritical nature of how he is would leave people scratching their head.

    Though his Piposarus were varied, the yellow pants one was curious and stepped out towards the creature and the Human and looked up to them with a tilt of their head, full on with a blue light indicating calmness.

    'Be careful.'
    Specter warned the Piposaru telepathically as he was on alert with the other looking back to him for a moment before looking to the duo.

    Lucario grunted at Riley but didn't say anything, which Riley took as a sign that he knew what he did was wrong. Little brat, he thought fondly to himself. It was what he got for raising the Pokemon so comfortably without knowing how to actually raise one. Oh well.

    Turning back to the other person, Riley was startled by one of the creatures getting closer. It didn't seem hostile, but Riley quickly checked its aura anyway. Once he noticed the curiosity, as opposed to hostility, he relaxed and nodded at it. Absol simply stared back, not entirely tense, but not relaxed either. If a fight broke out, he always wanted to be ready.

    "Hello, there," Riley said to both the Pokemon-looking creature and what he assumed was its trainer, "I didn't realize anyone else was here. Is this your home, or did you stumble across this too?" He really hoped it wasn't the latter. It'd be hard to explain why he was in the house if the owner asked.

    Doesn't he realize these are a bunch of monkeys with helmets and pants while Specter is obviously the leader of the group? Oh well. Atleast there's some interaction.

    "Uki.. (Umm, the latter.)" replied the Piposaru. The simian's tongue wasn't Human but it can understand Human language and that's why Specter could understand them very well. However, what that creature just did..hmm..

    This brings up something.

    "If I may ask one thing, what is that creature with you?" the albino asked as he lifted up his head a bit with crimson hues focused on Riley and the Lucario.

    Riley glanced over at Lucario, who translated the creature's reply dutifully. Well, that made things simpler. Though, he was curious why others were also exploring, but more out of interest to see others why others might want to explore as opposed to just stay somewhere comfortable. He always felt better when around trainers such as himself, and finding explorers seemed like the closest thing in Pandora.

    Before he could ask, however, the intelligent one asked about his Pokemon, pointing at Lucario in particular. Absol bristled as Lucario taunted him over being ignored, but Riley quickly stopped that with only a look.

    He then turned back to the other person and answered, "he's a Lucario, a Pokemon. They're very common in my world, but not here, from what I can tell. They're creatures, all with unique and varied powers, who work alongside humans in everything from day-to-day life to battling and more." Both Pokemon seemed to perk up slightly at the praise, Lucario unambiguously haughty as Absol was much more subdued, but still pleased.

    "Pokemon, well, that is interesting." the albino mused for a bit as he was looking towards the Lucario before he stopped and looked over to the other creature in the distance before back to Riley. "Creatures with powers who work alongside with Humans among other things. To be fair, I've never honestly thought I would see such a thing. What a strange world this is."

    He actually cherished the thought honestly. Multiple individuals from multiple universes all in one setting wold allow the albino to learn more.

    "Of course, your Lucario is quite the haughty one." he teased a bit at the Pokemon.

    "I guess it could be weird if you're not used to it," Riley conceded, "though, I'm so used to being surrounded by them that it's strange to not see everyone with their own team of Pokemon." He also hated that it meant that he didn't have as many battles as he was used to, but that was neither here, nor there.

    He couldn't help the bark of laughter at the other's words, particularly when Lucario grunted in surprise and annoyance. Even Absol chuckled softly, but it was hard to hear over Lucario huffing and audibly pouting.

    "It's not funny!" Lucario said to Riley.

    "It kind of is," Riley returned before turning back to the stranger, "he can be, yes. I suppose I didn't teach him humility well."

    Specter also chuckled at Lucario's expense. "I admit, we all have something to learn. I'm sure he'll know of humility in due time."

    This is something very new to him after all and of course, he still wonders. "Anyways, Lucario. I'm sure he's capable of much though I am still wondering on what exactly."

    By the look of the Piposarus, they seem to be curious as well by the look of their eyes, well, despite of sunglasses and goggles alike. Not all of the seven simians were the same, especially when the yellow one is the most curious out of the bunch.

    "I'll show you humility," Lucario grumbled, but he was pouting rather than threatening, so Riley simply chuckled and shook his head. Absol huffed and just seemed annoyed at his teammate's antics. Still the gentleman, apparently.

    "Oh, well, he can do a lot," Riley said, "like... here." He pointed at a nearby fence-post and ordered, "ThunderPunch."

    Almost immediately, Lucario's paw became covered in electricity, which sparked as he jumped over the coop in his way and punched the fence-post with a shout. The electricity was almost blinding for a second before it faded, leaving a charred piece of wood sitting in the ground.

    Well, this is new. After all, for a Pokemon, a creature with powers to display their strength in front of the albino and his fellow minions. He can't help but to feel intrigued of the ordeal, this is something he should really take note in the future.

    "Very impressive." he admitted as he was forwarding his compliment towards the Lucario despite his snide nature hidden underneath, though, he can't exactly be one to show off. He'll give too much away and that's what he doesn't want.

    Lucario stood back up and huffed softly. To the outside observer, it probably seemed like he was dismissing the compliment. Riley, however, knew exactly how his Pokemon got when he was complimented; unsure and awkward, and hiding it under the stoic facade.

    Unable to resist, he turned to Specter and said, "he says thank you."

    "Don't speak for me!" Lucario raged over their aura. He also barked in frustration at Riley, which only caused his grin to widen as he started to chuckle, then start speaking over the increasingly frazzled Lucario.

    "He couldn't thank you himself, obviously. Just too shy to admit it. It really is so cute, isn't it? He should learn to value himself more; he might be able to accept compliments better." As they bickered, Absol sighed softly and dropped his head into one of his paws. And Riley wondered why he always needed a babysitter.

    Specter seems to enjoy teasing Lucario in subtle ways. It'd be a miracle that he would actually admit something seriously without his usual teasing involved. A perk to being mischievous in his own way but understanding the connection between Pokemon and Humans.

    "Of course." he mused and quite proudly at that as well, well not without a chuckle at the Lucario's expense that even his teammate is facepalming.
