Rivalry coming up, yay!
Also, I thought of something. If you ever get writers block or feel like you're not sure of what kind of pokémon or traveler you want to encounter when out on a route - don't hesitate to let me know :)
You could just put a little ((OOC: blabla)) note at the end of your post, stating that you want me to give you an event. Which would mean that I make a little post about something basic that you have to encounter, which you then can hopefully modify if you feel your creative juices regrow.
Maybe you won't feel bored for a few more routes (hopefully not, at least) but still, you should know that the option is here :3
