The desert sand bites at her skin, but Margot doesn't hesitate or stop once the wind starts picking up. They heard reports of a Pokémon thief fleeing Mauville City, headed North. The local rangers are busy checking west, but Margot's certain the thief headed off into the desert, likely thinking that the rangers wouldn't dare follow them there.

Unfortunately for the thief, they didn't imagine Margot or Min working this case.

Kishar is at home here, unbothered by the stinging wind. Tiamat struggles to find purchase in the shifting sands, preferring to climb atop Margot instead, piggybacking on her. She's used to the weight; she turns to Min, gesturing to her Pokémon.

"Can they track in this condition?"

Min snorts, lets a thick breath out between her lips. "Can they track," she mutters, whistles through her teeth a particular strain of melody. Her Lycanroc bounds forward, her body shimmering with anticipatory energies: this is what she lives for, being able to use her incredible nose for the purpose nature truly intended. She gives no sign of being uncomfortable, though visibly pregnant with what Min hopes is a healthy litter of puppies.

The wolf takes in a deep breath, catches something, begins off immediately at a punishing pace. Min's right behind her, struggling a little to keep her lithe form upright in the lashing, sandy winds, but her Mightyena gives her pushes in the backs of the legs and knees every now and again when she's really struggling. The Furfrou is having some more problems, however; Min's going to have to groom him extra-well later to make up for all this sand and dirt. He doesn't complain: he's too proud and too well-trained for that. She looks back from the dog to fondly smile at the stunted bat clinging on to her companion's head: the smile quickly disappears, though. Can't have Margot thinking Min-Soo has feelings or anything.

Following the Lycanroc silently isn't a problem, but it's been a while since they last spoke. She might as well try a little. "You look well." It's not conversation, just an observation. She knows Margot: she knows she doesn't like wasting breath on pleasantries. But still, there's something to be said for the mutual respect between them, something that would definitely pass for friendship, were it between anyone else less married to their jobs.

She thought it was a reasonable question, especially with the state of Min's Lycanroc. She bounds forward, eagerly following the scent, even with the extra weight she's carrying around and the biting wind that might confuse her. Kishar remains close while Anu flies high, avoiding the worst of the weather by keeping near the clouds. Margot trudges through the sand behind Min, catching the glimpse of a smile before Min suddenly turns back around.

She has to stop herself from immediately snapping, What?, the hairs on the back of her neck rising briefly. But she settles quickly enough, huffing when Min tells her that she looks well. "Thank you," she says, voice stiff. She thinks of returning the compliment, but decides she likes Min too much to carry on a false conversation. Instead, she turns onto a topic that she actually cares about. "How is she doing? With the pregnancy." She gestures to Min's Lycanroc, who appears to be doing as well as usual, but she may as well ask.

Min-Soo is incredibly thankful that Margot doesn't see fit to continue with boring small talk. They're both too smart for this, both too driven and too stubborn to try and be something they're not. It's refreshing. Being around Margot doesn't feel stifling or constrictive like everyone else does: Min can stomach her for multiple hours at a time, a real achievement. "She would not stop even if I bade her," Min says, something close to humour, closer to affection in her voice.

She pushes her scarf higher up her mouth and nose: little bits of grit and sand were beginning to catch on her lips. The Lycanroc, knowing she's being talked about, pushes her head down even more forcefully and moves from a jog to a canter. It's as though she's trying to prove that she can be useful even with her current condition, and though Min is worried she's sure the prideful Pokemon wouldn't push herself past her limits, not with the safety of her pups at risk.

All of a sudden she stops. The wolf seems to lose the scent for a moment, here, and pauses, looking back at Min and Margot with her head tilted to one side. Min turns to Margot. "Perhaps a bats'-eye view?"

She hums in response and leaves it at that. Min is one of the few people she trusts with Pokémon—even among the rangers, Min is most similar to Margot and the person in their group most single-mindedly dedicated to the welfare of Pokémon. Sometimes, she can't help but think of what Min would think if she knew Margot years ago, while she was still with her family. She probably wouldn't think anything; Margot's seen her Mightyena's teeth talk for her enough times to understand what would most likely happen.

The past is in the past, however, and Margot intends to keep it there. She struggles to keep up with the Lycanroc at her new speed, the weight of Tiamat slowing her considerably, but it isn't far before Min's Lycanroc stops suddenly, looking lost.

Kishar hovers close and Margot merely nods. Her Gliscor may not have the scent of a Lycanroc, but she knows what she needs to do, soaring high into the air. She and Anu circle for a few minutes before Anu takes off in a direction; Kishar flies closer so that Margot and Min can follow.

"This way," is all she says before following Kishar's path.

The combined efforts of their companion Pokemon is almost enough to bring a tear to Min's perpetually dry eyes. Almost. She's often brought to reverent silence by all the ways her friends help her and the other rangers perform their duties. Lycanroc, though pregnant and fat, still searching with her nose: Furfrou, defying his proud nature to get down and dirty with the others. Mightyena, of course, would be nowhere but Min's side. They're all perfect, and Min wishes she could find the words to tell them properly.

She nods as Margot takes the lead in their search, wondering what the bats see that their rangers don't - and that Lycanroc can no longer smell. The sharp biting winds whip away scents faster than they can be tracked, that much is true, and Min is not disappointed in her companion's steadfast effort until this point. She looks up, shields her eyes from the bright sun, and moves ever forward. "Can't have got far," she says, loudly, over the sound of the winds, "We'll have him soon. Arrest first, or..." she branches off, but she knows Margot knows what she's implying.

Violence. Lots and lots of physical violence.
