The sun was still yawning, hanging low in the morning sky and sending soft shafts of sunlight to dapple the waking earth below. The lake shone in its morning splendor as the early spring breeze gently caressed its shimmering surface. In the boughs of the trees that hugged its beaches, the bird Pokémon sang wistfully in their attempt to wake the world below. Remoor was just beginning to stir, preparing for the new day, but someone was already awake and relaxing after a busy day.
The water Pokémon rose with the moon and was usually asleep before noon, but what else would you expect from a nocturnal Pokémon like her? Perhaps it was her heritage, that one part of her father's dark type genes that kept her up at night, or maybe it was her always buzzing mind, full of unanswered questions but whatever the cause Echo slept little. She spent her nights patrolling her new home, mentally noting every difference from the night before and pondered its cause, its effect, and why such a thing would happen. She stalked her prey for hours before finally giving in to her belly's demands. This Vaporeon loved to see, loved to question, loved to learn.
And so, this is where Echo is found, floating on the the surface of the lake, gazing up at the brightening sky, pondering her latest obsession.
Strange, two legged creatures that were definitely not Pokémon, according to her friend Sigh. They had no powers like Pokémon did, but they had weapons. No smarts, but they were very clever. On days when she was feeling particularly brave, Echo would swim up river and wiggle her way into the sewer system to spy on those weird creatures from the grates under their feet. Today had not been such a day, however. Instead she'd spent it memorizing the flora of the area. It was exhausting work and kind of dull, sleepiness tugged at her consciousness as she wondered if tomorrow would be the same.
But who knew? Maybe something interesting would happen?
