========== WRITTEN TEST ==========

[For this portion of the application, make your best effort to follow the italicized lines and NPC dialogue with whatever you wish, in order to explain your team. You can even change the setting of the interaction as long as the NPC still asks all the necessary questions. Be creative! You may delete this line if you wish.]

A single streak of blue sky between the dense clouds above Andalusst City marks the start of an unpredictable morning, and it seems like rain or shine could develop at a whim. The assorted traders and pedestrians mulling about seem to be a little wary, trying to park their stalls and carts in shaded areas or making efforts to keep their dry produce hidden away for now.

Hope it doesn't rain, it looks like its going to, it does doesn't it?" Sun asked her partner. Kui made a small grunting sound, that was his version of a shrug. "You can never tell with the weather can you?" Sun asked again. Kui nodded and said, "We're here."

While the Explorers Guild Hall isn't exactly the most eye-catching building, it still has a somewhat homely feel to it, even though your party has only just finished registering. The Explorers seem to have a certain unmistakable aura to them, though one in particular happens to meet your gaze.

This place looks simple," said Sun. There was a pause, the Chimchar usually never says less than five words. Kui braced for some kind of joyous outburst of some sort. "I like it! Reminds me of the monastery, except the architecture though, that's a different story, what do you think Kui?" 

"I don't have opinions," said the Pineco. With a shrug the Chimchar walked into the building, her Pineco partner bouncing behind her.

The Servine leaning against a nearby wall inclines her narrow snout toward you and gives a little nod, her bright eyes briefly visible under the shadow of her hat.

"Hey... New, are you?" She speaks with a hint of caution, but her tone is otherwise welcoming. "Hmm, stupid question. 'Course you are, I saw you sign in. Admittedly I'm not great with this meet and greet stuff, so how about exchanging names to start things off? You first."

"I'm Sun, of Wukong," said Sun with contained glee, she pointed to Kui. "And this is Kui Jia! My partner! He doesn't talk much so I'll do most of the talking."

Upon receiving this response, she relaxes a little, folding her small arms across her chest. "Ahh, that's great. Yeah, when you said your name just then, it had that... that "zing". It means you're serious about this, yeah? As for me, my name's Teresa. I'm what you'd call a Guild Assistant, which makes me your Serperior."

Kui groaned and would have face palmed if it weren't for his lack of arms. Sun rolled onto the floor and laughed out loud, the laughter rolling off the walls. Sun would usually keep quiet at a bad joke but this time, this time she's just bursting with joy. Even a Magikarp joke can knock her off her feet.

She stares at you with a blank face for a moment, then giggles quietly. "You know, you don't have to be so polite. I don't really care about rank and file, but I do care about honesty. If I tell a joke and it sucks, feel free to roll your eyes."

She extends one of her thin, green vines and nods, expecting a handshake even though she keeps her arms folded. "So what brings you here, anyway? You from out of town, or...?"

"Monestary. Far East. Left. Went village to village. Found this place after getting lost in the fog." said Kui. It was probably the most words he has said in a phrase in the entire day. He's been asked this question a lot of times. He didn't want Sun to repeat the entire thing again and again so he spoke instead of Sun.

Satisfied with your answer, Teresa nods and withdraws her vine. "Cool, cool... Well, whatever the case, you've got a name in mind for your group, right? I didn't get a chance to check your papers, but I do want to get more familiar with our rookie members when I have the time. I'm kinda new to this whole assistant thing, honestly."

"Team Jin-Gang. I'm the Armor. She's the Flame." said Kui. Sun nodded, but kept quiet. This was the first time Kui was doing the talking, despite how much she wanted to say something, but she thought that Kui was trying to give her a break. Not the best time, but she appreciates it.

A smile creeps over her narrow features when she hears the given name of your team, though it's ambiguous as to whether she found it inspiring or amusing for other reasons. "There's that "zing" again. Feels good to know we've got Pokémon like you joining our Guild. I guess Cassidy wasn't exaggerating when he said the standouts just keep pouring in. Just don't get cocky - confidence is good, but overconfidence in a dungeon is a quick way to get yourself in trouble, along with everyone else in your party." She taps the side of her snout, then clicks her tiny fingers as another question enters her mind. "Oh right, this is very important - why did you want to become an Explorer, hm? Just curious..."

"Oh oh! I can answer this one! To explore and help people! For adventure! After all, the word explorer is in the guilds name, exploring brings adventure. I always love a good adventure, Kui can agree with that. Can't say much for him though I mean he's not one known for moving around a lot," said an excited Sun. Kui Jia looked are her for a while and nodded, giving recognition to what she's said. She continued "We left the monastery to see the world, this is a huge chance for us to see the world. We're not going to miss this!"

She listens patiently to the explanation, but as soon as you're done with the tale, she immediately begins speaking again, her words leaving her mouth more rapidly and urgently than before. "...Because ultimately, the people come first, yeah? There's lots of food in the dungeons, and materials for clothing and medicine! When we go out and find that stuff, it means everyone here gets to have dinner. I mean, you know that, obviously, but just don't forget!"

"We still get to see places, not to sound all tourist like, but really now, seeing places and helping people, win win for everyone!" said Sun.

Teresa sways her leaf-adorned tail from side to side and taps her foot, momentarily distracted by her own thoughts, a wanting grin plastered across her face. When she snaps back to reality, she lifts her snout into the air and clears her throat. "N-not to sound standoffish, but what exactly do you do, anyway? What skills or talents do you have to offer the Guild? Everyone's good at something, I think."

Sun started, "A Jin-Huo does not brag, but I feel like this is a sort of formal occasion. I'm the Flame, I'm fast and dangerous, Hone Claws and Fire Punch, once you're hit you're done. Knocked out. Perhaps on fire. We don't rush into battle a lot. We're Jin-Huo, we strike when the enemy least expects it. Kui here is the Armor, he is the guy who takes all the hits. He tougher than oak and strong as a stubborn Shelgon. He keeps me safe, and returns all the damage back with Bide."

Even before you've finished properly answering, Teresa clicks her fingers and purses her lips, as if hearing that mythical zing yet again. "I can just feel it, you do what you do and do it with everything you've got. 'Cause in this guild, when a giver gives, then the giver gets... gotten... gets give-- eh, well you get what you give, or something. Whatever, it's written down on that big plaque in the hall. Just do your best and come see me if you need any help."

Sounding much more cheerful than when she'd first approached, she gives you a little wave and turns to immediately engage another group of recruits nearby, no doubt asking them similar questions. The life of a Guild Assistant must be a busy one.

"Dude! That's Team Earthshock she's talking to there! Ling! Razyrad! Good to se-" started Sun. Kui quickly silenced her as they got weird looks from the other recruits. Tong Ling saw her and gave a small wave, while his partner gave Kui a slight nod. Kui returned it. There seemed to be a sort of kinship between the Voltorb and Pineco. Probably because they both don't have legs.
It's finally here. It's that time of the year. Come gather around this Guild app is out! So, I feel great that this app is done. For I've been clutching my arse just waiting for the template to come.

The above was a song whose tune only I know. No words could be said. I must sing.

Update: I've evolved the Pineco, before I posted story about his evolution. Why? Cause it's a trailer to what I've been up to.
