"Really? You guys don’t have a lot of kids around here? Hm. Um, okay!" Jumpy replies after hearing there aren’t any other kids around. He’s not sure what the backstory is, but he’s been to other places that didn’t have a whole lot of children either. And learning they might not immediately have a shirt in his size, he shrugs his shoulders. He can get by without one for a while as long as they don’t have to go outside or snow anytime soon. Though he did once charge into the Yosyonke ruins in his boxing gear. Not one of his prouder moments. lol
Jumpy enters the dining room, and Blaze to the table. Hearing the kinds of food they have in Asada, Jumpy has a general idea of what he could eat. He doesn’t need a full three course meal. Just something to calm his appetite.
The Asadan sighed, realizing that Jumpy had well, jumped to a conclusion. Even at the peak of Asada’s league, there weren’t many kids that made it to Champion Isle. Blaze had been an anomaly in many, many ways.
"The Pokemon League is the pinnacle of trainers. Sure, some children make it to the top, but it’s… Rare, and the champion hasn’t made it easy for them to stay long."
Continuing to wait, Blaze merely nodded. He didn’t really accept the apology personally, but he’d learned to keep his political face on, especially when it was involving kids.
"It’s fine. Cubchoo will recover safely, and so will its mother." Of course, he didn’t bother adding that he essentially had to take the boy in until he returned home, or found him another place to reside at the very least.
He fell silent, mentally sighing as he did. Jumpy wanted to meet more trainers, but the problem with that was there weren’t that many around, and most of the accessible ones were like him, hardened by years of conflict.
For a moment, Blaze closed his eyes, considering who might be best. Then, after a time, he spoke.
"Most trainers are either constantly on the road or busy with their duties. Still, if I’m correct, Beyard might be available."
Beyard was the oldest remaining gym leader. Merely forty, he was considered ‘old’ by most Asadans due to the problems that had arisen.
"He’s Windall Citiy’s gym leader, an electric type master."
"Cool! Glad the little guy will be alright then!" Jumpy says, happy he didn’t seriously harm the bear. He’s not the kind of kid to want to go getting into trouble when he arrives someplace new. But sometimes he ends up in odd predicaments! lol
After listening to Blaze talk about possibly meeting Beyard, he perks up. His curiosity gets the better of him upon hearing that there are electric versions of these Pokemon as well!
"That would be awesome! Always cool to meet new people! And you say he’s got some electric types? So they can use lightning and stuff! Neat! Wonder what other kinds there are? Oh! Are there ones that do martial arts like boxing and stuff? I bet I could take one in a round! Yeah!" Jumpy says, going on another tangent about meeting other Pokemon and how he thinks he could do a quick spar with a Pokemon. He’s gone up against the likes of robots and even super fast cheetahs before (a "brother" of his trainer), so he has some experience in unusual matchups. Probably why he’s taking the unexpected introduction to Pokemon in stride to.
Jumpy finally settles down, not wanting to make a scene or cause any embarrassment. He doesn’t want to be a burden to those he’s staying with at the moment. They’re keeping him warm from the elements after all.
"Er, I mean yes, it would be nice to meet him! And if there’s anything I can do to help out around here let me know! I could even show you some boxing skills I know too! Not that a giant guy like you would really need it, along with your Pokemon. Heh!" Jumpy says, offering to help around if he can. It’s a Kattelox tradition to pay back your hosts if possible when visiting a new place after all!
