canthearyou: (THIS MEANS SOMETHING THE TIE DOES NOT)
[Gordon's on video again, just as confused as he was during his last transmission and holding up what appears to be a bonsai tree. He's trying to explain that he found it in his bag, and that he ran into some odd Pokemon earlier, which seems to be happening a lot lately.

He's also trying to inform a few people who might be watching that he's currently stuck on Route 5, and it's going to be a while before he can get back to Saffron. It's a shame too since he was almost back and then that weird Pokemon seems to have sent him back to the start of the route.

The keyword here is trying. Unbeknownst to Gordon, while the video is working fine, the Gear's not recording any audio at all. So there's the attached video of him talking, but what he's saying isn't audible. Nor is the background music or any other noise that would normally be recorded.]
canthearyou: (I AM CALLING YOU FROM PORTLAND...OREGON)
[When the feed starts, it shows Gordon looking confused. He’s more than a little concerned with some of the things he’s seen on the Gear today, but confusion’s taking priority here.]

I KNOW THERE’S A LOT GOING ON, BUT IS ANYONE MISSING POKEMON? BECAUSE THERE WAS APPARENTLY SOME SORT OF MIXUP AT THE POKEMON CENTER, AND I SEEM TO HAVE ACQUIRED SOMEONE ELSE’S POKEMON. TO BE SPECIFIC, FIVE EXPLOUDS.

[He has six, but he’s pretty sure one of them is his.]

SO IF YOU’RE MISSING ONE, COULD YOU CONTACT ME SO WE CAN GET THIS SORTED OUT. I’LL BE AROUND-

[Wait, he was over by Saffron and now he’s…actually, he’s not sure where he is. From the looks of it, this is a completely different route than the one he was on before.]

I’LL GET BACK TO YOU ON THAT ACTUALLY. NEED TO FIGURE OUT WHERE I AM FIRST.

[Gordon's transmission ends there, but he'll be wandering around various routes, bugging the NPC trainers and trying to figure out exactly who these Explouds belong to.]
canthearyou: (WHAT? INDOOR VOICE? NEVER HEARD OF IT)
[When the feed starts, it shows Gordon for a brief moment before he turns the camera towards a Wooper that appears to be hiding behind a chair. She’s definitely not coming out from behind there any time soon, so Gordon’s just going to put himself back onscreen now.]

THE POKEMON YOU JUST SAW IS NAMED MINUTE. SHE USED TO BELONG TO A FRIEND OF MINE. I’VE BEEN TAKING CARE OF HER FOR ABOUT A MONTH, AND EVERY TIME I THINK I HAVE THINGS FIGURED OUT, THIS HAPPENS.

FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH, MY STARTER WAS PRETTY SHY TOO, BUT I’M DEFINITELY HAVING MORE OF A PROBLEM WITH THIS ONE. SO I’D LIKE TO ASK THE FOLLOWING: DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR HANDLING POKEMON THAT ARE LIKE THIS? ALSO, PLEASE REFRAIN FROM SUGGESTING THAT I PUT IT IN THE PC BOX. I’D PREFER TO AVOID DOING THAT, SORRY.
canthearyou: (THIS MEANS SOMETHING THE TIE DOES NOT)
[Today, there’s a video post from Gordon. It took him a while to get the video going, but aside from the occasional shakiness, it seems to be going well enough. The feed itself displays Gordon’s Jynx which is holding a violet piece of paper in front of the camera. It’s probably held in place long enough for the viewer to notice it before being blown away by a Whirlwind from his Pidgeotto. That might not have been the clearest way of telling people he cleared the Violet City Gym, but that’s what he’s trying to say.

There’s also something Gordon would like to say, so the feed continues after the paper is blown away.]


ONE MORE THING BEFORE I GO, IF THERE’S A NORMAN JAYDEN LISTENING, OR IF YOU KNOW HIM, COULD YOU PLEASE HAVE HIM CONTACT ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE? IT'S NOT ANYTHING OF MAJOR IMPORTANCE, BUT LIKE I SAID, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WOULD BE BEST. THANK YOU.

{OOC: Badge is mod approved!}

[Those checking their Gears right now might hear a familiar voice. What’s odd though is that the same voice is also coming from the radio if one is listening to that.]

HELLO. IS THIS THING ON? THIS IS GORDON, GORDON COLE. I SEEM TO BE IN A RADIO STATION OF SOME SORT. I’M NOT SURE HOW THIS HAPPENED, BUT PLEASE SEND HELP IMMEDIATELY. THANK YOU.

I APPEAR TO BE OKAY, JUST DISPLACED. SORT OF LIKE WHEN I GOT HERE. IF SOMEONE COULD ALERT AGENTS COOPER AND ROSENFIELD TO THE SITUATION AS WELL, I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT. THANKS AGAIN.

[It’s just dead air after that since Gordon’s not really sure how to turn the music back on.

The message repeats every twenty minutes or so. In the meantime, Gordon will be wandering around the studio trying to figure out how he was magically whisked from Albert’s farm to the Radio Tower.]

This is an official advisory.

Due to the recent outbreak of Ghost-Types, and what is believed to be a related string of reported possession incidents, the following has been advised:

-Limit unnecessary travel whenever possible. Swarms have been reported in multiple locations, so the more you travel, the greater possible risk of encountering one.
-If you must travel, try to do so only during the daylight hours. Whenever possible, travel in groups. Both of these should hopefully limit the chances of falling victim to one of these creatures
-If you encounter someone you believe to be afflicted by these creatures, remember that your first priority is your own safety. However, if you can do so safely, try to get them to a Pokémon Center for treatment. There has been at least one report of someone exhibiting signs of possession inflicting harm on their own person, and that should be prevented whenever possible.
-If they become hostile, attempt to find help immediately, whether it be another trainer, local law enforcement, or someone else. Do not engage someone you believe to be afflicted by these creatures if you cannot do so in a safe manner. Once again, we strongly emphasize that your first priority should be your own safety, so please seek outside assistance if the situation calls for it.

Due to resource issues, the Bureau is regrettably unable to assist all areas at this time. However, citizens in the greater Goldenrod-Saffron area are encouraged to call any member of the Bureau if they are in need of assistance. To contact an agent of the Bureau for assistance or further information, call any one of the following numbers:
>TRAINER ID: GORDON COLE
>TRAINER ID: DALE COOPER
>TRAINER ID: ALBERT ROSENFIELD


{OOC: All three of the agents will be handling calls, so just let us all know who you want in the subject line!}
canthearyou: (BONZAI LIKE IN WWII BANZAI)
HELLO, EVERYONE. THIS IS GORDON COLE SPEAKING. I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT POKEMON EVOLUTION, AND I’M HOPING SOMEONE OUT THERE CAN ANSWER IT. NOW, I’VE READ THE HANDBOOK AND UNDERSTAND THAT POKEMON CAN CHANGE FORMS FOR SEVERAL REASONS, BUT I’M A LITTLE CONFUSED ABOUT SOMETHING. YESTERDAY, MY KRICKETOT EVOLVED INTO A KRICKETUNE. FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND THIS IS NORMAL.

[Or as normal as the Pokémon world gets anyway.]

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THOUGH, IS HOW COMMON IS IT FOR A POKEMON TO MAKE A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT NOISE AFTER EVOLVING. I CAN ACTUALLY HEAR THIS SOMETIMES, AND I’M PRETTY SURE IT DIDN’T MAKE THAT NOISE BEFORE. IT SOUNDS LIKE…ACTUALLY, LET ME SHOW YOU.

GO AHEAD. IT’S RECORDING.

[There’s some silence, and then… this.]

IT’S REALLY STRANGE. ALSO DOES ANYONE KNOW IF IT’S NORMAL FOR POKEMON TO GROW A MUSTACHE AFTER EVOLVING? BECAUSE THIS ONE DID. AT LEAST IT LOOKS LIKE A MUSTACHE. I'M NOT REALLY SURE WHAT IT IS.
canthearyou: (BONZAI LIKE IN WWII BANZAI)
[Gordon’s in Violet City finally, but that might be hard to tell at first. His yelling’s probably doing a good job of covering up the background music.]

THIS IS REALLY SOMETHING ELSE. I HAD HEARD THESE THINGS COME FROM EGGS, BUT I HADN’T SEEN IT HAPPEN UNTIL JUST NOW. I’M NOT SURE WHAT IT IS OR WHY THIS EGG WAS DELIVERED TO ME, BUT IT HATCHED.

[In trying to work the Gear, he might’ve ordered an egg under the Breeding Centre’s newbie deal. He knows buttons were pushed and yelling happened, and then eventually an egg was delivered, but the specifics of the conversation are mostly a mystery to Gordon.]

I KNOW IT’S NOT A CAT. IT HAS BLONDE HAIR, AND A PURPLE FACE. ALSO IT SEEMS TO FALL DOWN A LOT. IT DOESN’T LOOK ANYTHING LIKE THE OTHER POKEMON I HAVE. DOESN’T LOOK LIKE A WHISMUR OR A KRICKETOT.

[He’s been working with the pokédex while out on Route 30. Thankfully, it has text display, so he was able to actually find out what his Pokémon are called.]

I WONDER IF THAT ENCYCLOPEDIA HAS INFORMATION ON THIS THING.

[The pokédex unfortunately has the read aloud function enabled, so Smoochum’s entry is getting broadcast across the PokéGear Connect at maximum volume.]

IT DOES. IT JUST HATCHED BUT EVERYTHING IS IN HERE. THAT’S AMAZING!

[And then quiet. For a couple of minutes at least.]

WOW! DID ANYONE ELSE SEE THAT? A BUNCH OF BIRDS JUST FLEW BY IN FORMATION. KINDA REMINDS ME OF THE BLUE ANGELS. WHICH ALSO REMINDS ME THAT I NEED TO CALL A CAB. NOT NOW THOUGH. I’VE TAKEN A TEMPORARY JOB IN THE CITY, SO THAT COMES FIRST. BUT SOON.

[He’s just going to assume that the right people will understand that and end the call there. Not to worry, he’s not actually expecting a black and yellow taxi to show up.]

ALSO, MADE IT TO TOWN LAST NIGHT, REID. TOOK ME TEN DAYS TO GET HERE.

[He got turned around a few times.]

I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S HOW LONG IT NORMALLY TAKES OR NOT.

[And that’s the end of the feed!]
canthearyou: (I AM CALLING YOU FROM PORTLAND...OREGON)
[Oh hi Johto. It’s been a while since Gordon’s called in to let everyone know what he’s been up to, hasn’t it? Not to worry! Today, he’s going to let everyone know everything he’s been doing.]

CALLING IN TO REPORT A NUMBER OF THINGS. ONE, SINCE THE WEATHER’S FINALLY CLEARED UP, I’M HEADING OUT AGAIN ALONG WHAT THE SIGN POST BACK THERE REFERRED TO AS ROUTE 30. I THINK I HAVE ENOUGH SUPPLIES TO MAKE IT TO THE NEXT TOWN. IF I DON’T, I GUESS I’LL HAVE TO MAKE DUE BECAUSE IT WOULD BE A LONG WALK BACK TO THE STORE.

SECOND, RAN INTO A YOUNG MAN ON THIS ROUTE BY THE NAME OF JOEY. HIS POKEMON IS APPARENTLY SOME SORT OF RAT. I THINK HE SAID IT WAS A RATTAT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. APPARENTLY IT’S IN THE TOP PERCENTAGE OF ALL RATTATS. NOT SURE HOW THAT WORKS, BUT THAT’S WHAT HE SAID. WONDER WHAT PERCENTAGE OF POKEMON THE ONE I HAVE IS IN.

[He’s still not actually sure what Whismur is called.]

HOW DO YOU FIGURE THAT OUT? ALSO, NOT SURE IF THAT'S THE JOE COOPER WAS REFERRING TO, BUT IT'S THE ONLY JOE I'VE MET SO FAR.

THIRD, I’VE BEEN UNABLE TO LOCATE A WESTERN UNION HERE. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE THE CLOSEST ONE IS OR WHAT THE NEAREST EQUIVALENT IS?

AND FOURTH, TWICE NOW MY PHONE HAS DISPLAYED SOMETHING CALLED KANTO DISCOVERY TRAIL. WHAT IS IT AND WHY DO THE POKEMON ON IT KEEP FAINTING FROM VARIOUS DISEASES? IS IT A GAME? OR IS IT SOME SORT OF GUIDE ON HOW GET THROUGH THIS PLACE?

[Guess who accidentally found the apps section of the Gear?]
canthearyou: (WHAT? INDOOR VOICE? NEVER HEARD OF IT)
[Even though some very nice people explained to Gordon how to use the text function on his Gear, he still has it set to audio. In addition to his voice, there’s Pokémon Center music in the background, as well as the sounds of the storm outside.]

ALBERT? COOPER? IF YOU CAN HEAR ME, THIS IS GORDON COLE. I’VE BEEN IN CHERRYGROVE FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS, AND I UNDERSTAND THERE’S ANOTHER TOWN SOME DISTANCE FROM HERE, BUT I’M UNABLE TO HEAD OUT DUE TO THE WEATHER. IN FACT, I’M GLAD I MADE IT HERE BEFORE THESE STORMS HIT BECAUSE THEY DON’T SEEM TO BE LETTING UP ANY TIME SOON.

ALSO, I’VE FOUND OUT WHAT MY, WHAT ARE THEY CALLED AGAIN, POKEMON? I THINK THAT WAS IT. WHAT MY POKEMON DOES! APPARENTLY, IT MAKES A LOT OF NOISE. I CAN HEAR IT PERFECTLY WHEN IT DOES THAT, BUT I’VE BEEN ASKED BY THE PEOPLE HERE TO KEEP IT FROM DOING THAT WHILE INDOORS. I’LL HAVE TO SHOW YOU SOME OTHER TIME.

[So thankfully, everyone is spared from Whismur using Uproar or yelling until it passes out. For now.]

FURTHERMORE, I’D LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE WHO PROVIDED ADVICE AND EXPLANATIONS THE OTHER DAY. I REALLY APPRECIATE IT. DON’T THINK I WOULD’VE MADE IT HERE WITHOUT YOUR HELP. THANKS. ALSO.

[Gordon pauses, then says the next sentence very carefully and deliberately. It clearly means something, though since he just thought of the code the other day; it probably won’t make sense to anyone.]

ALSO, SIX MINUTES AGO SOMEONE LEFT THE RESTAURANT WITHOUT PAYING.

[And then the last bit before the call ends isn’t related to the above code at all. Just Gordon thinking about things.]

SURE WERE A LOT OF OWLS ON THAT ROAD AT NIGHT TOO. I’VE NEVER SEEN SO MANY IN ONE PLACE.
canthearyou: (I AM CALLING YOU FROM PORTLAND...OREGON)
HELLO! IS THIS THING ON? CAN YOU HEAR ME?

[The voice speaking appears to be yelling as loudly as possible into the receiver, and sounds a little confused about his current situation.]

I’VE NEVER SEEN A PHONE LIKE THIS, SO I’M NOT SURE IF THIS CALL IS EVEN GOING OUT. IF ANYONE CAN HEAR THIS, I THINK I’VE BEEN KIDNAPPED. IT’S THE DAMNDEST THING THOUGH. I DON’T REMEMBER BEING KIDNAPPED. OR MY MOTHER LOOKING LIKE THAT! ALSO, WHAT KIND OF KIDNAPPING COMES WITH A FREE PET?

[There’s a brief pause before the silence is broken by more yelling.]

THOUGH I’M NOT SURE EXACTLY WHAT THIS THING IS. IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE ANY ANIMAL I’VE EVER SEEN. SEEMS PRETTY QUIET TOO. THEN AGAIN, THE MYSTERY PET ISN’T REALLY THE PROBLEM HERE. IF ANYONE IS RECEIVING THIS PLEASE SAY SOMETHING AND LET ME KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON. OR TELL ME HOW TO GET IN TOUCH WITH SOMEONE WHO DOES. PREFERABLY THE POLICE OR THE NEAREST FIELD OFFICE. TELL THEM REGIONAL BUREAU CHIEF GORDON COLE WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK WITH THEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THANK YOU.

[After hanging up, or at least thinking he’s hung up, Gordon puts the phone away and kneels down to take a closer look at his Whismur. Yelling at it doesn’t seem to be doing anything besides freaking it out, so if anyone wants to try and prevent the volume level going even higher, now might be the best time to step in.]
canthearyou: (I AM CALLING YOU FROM PORTLAND...OREGON)
[Because Gordon is already recording, the entire thing is the message anyone will get.]

WHAT'S THIS? THE PHONE HAS AN ANSWERING MACHINE? THAT'S AMAZING. BETTER SET THIS UP NOW BEFORE I FORGET THIS THING WORKS.

YOU'VE REACHED GORDON COLE WITH THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION. IF YOU HAVE INFORMATION FOR ME OR NEED TO REACH ME, YOU CAN DO SO HERE. I'LL CALL YOU BACK AS SOON AS I CAN. THANK YOU.
