Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Agency by the Sea

"Oh, sure. Just go easy so I don't fall off."






Noibat
Really? Thank you!



Noibat
Hurry, get on!


Noibat lowers herself to the ground so Mander can get on. After he does, she starts to rise back up, quickly rising above first the rescue board, then the tops of the buildings. She continues to rise in silence for some time. Eventually she stops.



Noibat
If you were any heavier, I wouldn't be able to do it. I'm just barely strong enough.



Noibat
We're so high! I haven't flown like this in a long time!



Noibat
Look!


Mander looks around at the landscape. The left side of his vision is dominated by a tall, frost-covered mountain ringed with clouds, while a dormant volcano covers his right. Several more peaks lay far off in the horizon. Looking down, he notices swampland, forests, plains, and much more. To Mander, the simply large number of biomes within an aerial view of Tempest Town is at once unsettling and not surprising.



Noibat
We're going to be exploring all of this very soon, once we finally become a rescue team.



Noibat
I'm so excited! Aren't you?









Xewi waits as instructed. She can hear Salamence talking in the distance, but not what he's saying until one particularly loud bit floats her way.



Salamence
WHAT?


For a brief moment the air feels just a little hotter. A few other Pokémon notice as well.

Salamence stops back to his stall.



Salamence
Don't ever let anyone address you like that.



Salamence
Let one of the shopkeepers know if you have an issue with anyone.



Salamence
We'll handle it quick. We don't allow that to happen in our town.











Salamence
WHAT?


Rocky and Ultima watch as Salamence enters the square and speaks calmly to Xewi. They can't make out his words.



Bagon
Did you feel that? It got really warm for a second.



Bagon
Salamence is so cool. I'm gonna be just like him someday, Shelgon said so!

"Wow. I'm not sure what to say. It looks amazing from here. I may not be sure where I'm from, but I hope we can live a wonderful life in this place."


Xewi
Sure thing! Thanks for being a hero!






Noibat
But you're not content with just living here, right?



Noibat
Maybe while we're exploring around here, we can find out how you got here or why your memories are gone.











Salamence
Hero? We're just keeping the peace.



Salamence
Don't lose that sense of wonder, though. We certainly need it.
"I don't know. I don't even know if I'll be able to get back if I do find out how I got here. But... at least I know I've got a place to stay here if that is the case."






Noibat
I suppose so. But let's look anyway.


Noibat dips down for a second.



Noibat
Looks like I can't fly for very long with you on my back. I'm not strong enough yet.



Noibat
Hang on, we're going back down.


Noibat and Mander slowly descend back down to the ground in front of the rescue board. Mander hops off.



Noibat
That was fun!



Noibat
I keep trying to get Azurill to fly with me but he won't do it.



Noibat
Let's do it again sometime!


You feel a closer bond with Noibat.

You will earn slightly more experience when exploring dungeons with Noibat.




???
Um, excuse me, sir.


Started, Mander turns around quickly. It's just Swinub.



Swinub
Ah... I didn't mean to startle you, sorry.



Swinub
Thank you for your assistance with Kecleon.



Swinub
I had little extra left after shopping, so I bought these for you as thanks.


Mander receives 3 Oran Berries!



Swinub
Now I really must go back. Strong Pokémon roam the forest at night.


Swinub shudders, then exits the square.








Sandile runs around the square, gathering everybody to the Kecleon brothers' shop.



Sandile
Guys, guys! We got it, the building is ours!



Espeon
It's going to need a lot of work... and we're broke...



Espeon
But yes, it's ours now.



Tepig
What do you mean we're broke?! Now we can't afford to register as a rescue team!



Espeon
No, that's fine. The I gave to Aron is enough to cover that.



Espeon
Speaking of that, how did it go with Salamence?



Turtwig
Salamence was really helpful. He set us up even though we're not actually a rescue team yet.



Espeon
Nice to hear.



Espeon
You all looked around, right? Kecleon said one of the shops helps with rescue team registration.



Espeon
Anyone know which one?

Ultima
Umm...





Ultima
I think I may have seen Mander talking with a Pelipper somewhere around here...





Ultima
And they were asking if he had a Rescue Team badge... or something similar...





Ultima
Maybe that's what you're looking for...?

"I talked with Pelipper earlier and he said we register there. Let's head there."

Espeon
Let's go there, then.


Everybody moves that direction. Tepig and Noibat move with haste, outpacing the others.

Tepig accidentally bumps into Aron in his rush. Aron trips and falls down.




Tepig
Oh no!



Tepig
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to knock you over!



Aron
It's okay. Just look where you're going next time, please.



Aron
There's no need to rush. We can't register until I get there. I have the .


Tepig continues to apologize, but everyone eventually gets there.



Pelipper
Welcome back!



Pelipper
I see you've brought your group. Is this everyone? Are you here to register as a rescue team?



Sandile
Yes and yes. We certainly are.



Pelipper
Registering a rescue team costs 500. Is this acceptable?



Noibat
Really? That's so cheap!



Pelipper
It needs to be. It doesn't help anybody if creating a rescue team was expensive.



Pelipper
That covers the material necessary to be a rescue team. The real comes from a share of rescue rewards.



Aron
I have the right here.


Aron hands Pelipper 500.



Pelipper
Thank you!



Pelipper
Now let me briefly explain the process of creating a rescue team.



Pelipper
The Pelipper Post Office is a service provided by the Explorer's Society of Grandestone City.



Pelipper
The cost of 500 covers the materials you need to properly function as a rescue team.



Pelipper
After you are finished registering, your registration will be sent to Grandestone City, where it will be finalized.



Pelipper
After that, I'll be given your materials. I'll come back here with them tomorrow morning.



Pelipper
You will be given several rescue team badges.
Rescue team badges serve many different purposes.



Pelipper
First and foremost, they are used to rescue Pokémon by automatically transporting them out of the dungeon.



Pelipper
Second, they are used to recruit new members. Give one to a Pokémon and they'll become auto-registered.



Pelipper
Third, they are used to give the Explorer's Society a quarter of all obtained from rewards.



Pelipper
You may have wondered how the Explorer's Society stays funded when registration is cheap. That's how.



Pelipper
Almost any group can register, but successful rescue teams are what keep them afloat.



Pelipper
And finally, they are used for tracking.



Pelipper
Badges are tied to your team, and track accepted requests, who created them, and who needs help.



Pelipper
They notify the Explorer's Society when you "rescue" a Pokémon not tied to one of your rescue missions.



Pelipper
If you do that, you may wake up to find your registration revoked and your badges non-functional.



Pelipper
You will also receive one or more bags, depending on the initial size of the group registering.



Pelipper
Since this group totals 11 Pokémon, you'll receive three.



Pelipper
They're used to hold items found in dungeons, and you'll receive bigger bags as you complete missions.



Pelipper
You start out as a Normal Rank team, and completing rescue missions will improve this rank.



Pelipper
You won't be able to accept just any mission from the beginning. Your badges prevent that.



Pelipper
As you increase your rank, missions that are harder and farther away will become available to you.



Pelipper
That should be everything. Now let me ask again to be sure. Is this everyone?



Turtwig
This is everyone.



Pelipper
Excellent. Then there's just one more thing I need in order to get you all registered.



Pelipper
The Explorer's Society requires you to have a unique identifier. They use this to separate rescue teams.



Pelipper
What would you like your rescue team name to be?
It can use any format.


Everybody stops and thinks.



Azurill
A team name?



Sandile
Huddle time.


Everybody moves away from the stand and huddles together. It's really crowded.



Sandile
Any ideas, guys?



Sandile
I've got nothing.



Noibat
How about Team Canopy? Since we came from Canopy Village.



Aron
That's not fair to Xewi, Rocky, Mander, and Ultima.
They didn't come from the village.



Noibat
Ah, you're right. Sorry.



Tepig
Let's go with... The Roarin' Flames. That sounds so cool, it'll strike fear in the hearts of Pokémon everywhere!



Espeon
I'll go with whatever you guys decide, but... I don't think that name will work.



Turtwig
That name doesn't represent us. You're only fire-type Pokémon on the team.



Azurill
And the only fire-type move you use is Burn Up.



Tepig
Oh, but... it sounded cool...



Turtwig
Hmm... what should we go with? I can't think of anything.

Rocky
Well, this place is Tempest Town, right?


Rocky
And, our building is right in the town square, so...


Rocky
Why not just call it the Tempest Town Rescue Team?
It gets right to the point, and includes everyone.


Xewi
(Ooh, ooh! Team Remix!!)



Xewi
(...eh, actually, the word "remix" sounds cool, but it's feels unfitting for a rescue team. Hmm...)



Xewi
(...Team Gound Punders!!)



Xewi
(...oof, I didn't realize it rhymes. That's weird!)



Xewi
(...yeah, I can't come up with anything, but I like Rocky's idea for a team name.)



Xewi
Tempest Town Rescue Team? It sound's representative of this town which is nice, but it seems kind of long.



Xewi
I think "Team Temptest" rolls off the tongue a lot better.

Espeon
Surely we're not the only team in Tempest Town.



Espeon
There must be others, or Pelipper wouldn't be in business here.

Rocky
Oh.... Right... Crumpets, that would make us sound pretty pretentious, wouldn't it? Sorry...
"How about Team Sleep? Names doen't really matter to me, as long as it's short and snappy."


Xewi
I can't think of a good team name, unless "Team Remix" sounds fine with any of you.


Ultima
Umm...



Ultima
Ooh, ooh, I know!



Ultima
How about...



Ultima
Team Zero!



Ultima
Yeah...



Ultima
Umm...



Ultima
Maybe that isn't as good a name as I thought...

Noibat
How about The Sleep instead of Team Sleep? Pelipper said we could use any name format.



Noibat
That sounds really intimidating.



Turtwig
Something about Team Remix sounds right. We're all different types, after all.



Tepig
Team Zero can also work.



Tepig
We're starting from basically nothing.



Sandile
That's pretty depressing, but it can work.



Espeon
All three of those work fine. I can go with any of them.


Everyone else nods.



Azurill
What will we go with, then?

Rocky
Uhh.... Team remix sounds fine... I guess...
Everyone looks at Xewi, Mander, and Ultima expectantly, but they don't respond.



Turtwig
It's Team Remix, then.


The group unhuddles.



Noibat
Ah, finally some fresh air.



Tepig
You didn't even huddle. You flew above us the whole time.



Pelipper
Have you all decided on a name?



Turtwig
Ah, yes we have!



Turtwig
We're going with Team Remix.



Pelipper
Very good choice! Let me just write it down and... done!



Pelipper
It's about time I started to fly.



Pelipper
Come back tomorrow and I'll have everything you need to get started.


As everyone watches, Pelipper places the and team registration document in his pouch and flies up and away. The gusts from Pelipper's flapping wings knock Azurill back.



Azurill
Ouch! Pelipper's wings are really strong.



Aron
That's not it. You're just really light.



Azurill
Okay...



Azurill
So what now?



Sandile
What do you mean?!



Sandile
Shouldn't we go check out the building we just bought? It's only where we're going to live from now on!



Espeon
I've seen the inside of it. It's going to take some work to fix it up to something livable.



Espeon
It's likely to take the rest of the day. Does anybody have anything else they need to do first?
