Winter 8th - Anniversary of the Fall
Better known by a cheeky few as the Fallniversary, the 8th of Winter is often marked as a time of remembrance for the people of Frontier City. A candle is lit in the evening, one for each life lost over the course of the year - be it human or Pokemon - and set outdoors for the wind to snuff out. A candle left burning the entire night is rumored to be an ill omen - the spirit it represents has supposedly not found peace and allowed itself to be carried away.
The practice has often been regarded as hauntingly beautiful, if a bit melodramatic. Every year, someone has without fail suggested replacing the candle-lighting with dropping misshapen Watmel berries from the roof of the largest building in the city to represent the falling of the Battle Frontier onto the Agresti region. Unfortunately, this has been rejected by the majority for the past 3 years the anniversary has been overseen.
SEASON & YEAR
WINTER YEAR 6
The most difficult of the Agrestian seasons, to the point that many of the townsfolk are more willing to open their homes to new Fallers to shield them from the bitter cold it brings. Heaters are another rare commodity, you see - and, although many have found means to build up makeshift hearths in their homes and businesses to counteract that, many newer residents find themselves sorely unprepared... which has made winter an ideal time for hungry opportunists, but a foul season for travel. The Guild advises against setting out on any ventures during the winter season, opting to only offer missions around the local area to protect the townsfolk.
NEWEST LOCATION + WORMHOLE
BEASTS SPINE & N/A
A mountain range resting roughly a two day walk outside of Frontier City, Beast’s Spine is aptly named due to supposed sightings of Ultra Beasts in the area. Well, that, and the sheer size of this natural wall is… well, beastly. Supposedly, the remains of the Battle Pyramid fell upon the north end of the island, but nobody who has flown over the mountains has returned to tell about it. In the meantime, effort is being undertaken to dig through it instead.
