It waved a hand dismissively. "Cac. Cacnea," it said, seeming to address the last part at the others. They waved and seemed to say a few brief goodbyes in their own manner of speaking, not particularly broken up.
That small amount of fanfare done with, it stared up at Adrien expectantly.
Several of the Roggenrola's had dispersed, leaving only one to step around in front of the entrance. "Cac," the Cacnea said, nudging it roughly away as it walked through. The Roggenrola stumbled a bit, but quickly recovered and started wandering off towards a nearby trainer who was chatting with an aide.
Once past Adrien, the Cacnea kept walking and headed towards the nearest available aide, a so-far unoccupied young man leaning against the wall.

The man nodded, scanning Adrien's chosen Cacnea with his Pokedex and taking a moment to check his license. "Alright, you're good to go," he said, smiling encouragingly at the oddly over-dressed boy. "I'm sure you'll take good care of him."
As the Poke ball clicked, Adrien felt a moment of respite. As he glanced at the Pokedex the feeling quickly began to fade however. Not because of the Pokedex though. Not at all. It was the orb in his hand, it began to feel heavy, very heavy to him. It wasn't quite panic but perhaps something close. A feeling of something being wrong grew in the pit of his stomach as he considered the helpless life resting in his hand. Logically speaking, he knew that Poke balls contained numerous fail safes to address most anything that could go wrong including a GPS locator but this wasn't strictly a matter of logic. Adrien quickly directed the Poke ball towards the ground and pressed the button. As the Cacnea reappeared, a much greater wave of relief swept over him.
Adrien took a moment to regain his composure. He was unsure of the Cacnea's question but he was sure the creature would alert him if it was important. "Next, there is still the matter of our other starter to attend to. Shall we?" Adrien asked as he started towards the other room.
It blinked and followed him in that waddle Cacnea's were prone to, more than a bit slower given its size and body shape.
Plenty of other trainers had already migrated into this room, a roofless enclosure surrounded by the walls of surrounding hallways. The ground was grassy in here as well and in one corner the room sported its own stony, artificial pool, a pump spouting water out from the middle.
A girl was recalling a newly recruited Electrike as Adrian entered, leaving only four of the dogs behind. Of those remaining two were lounging apart from each other, one was rolling around playfully in front of a clapping Seel, and another was settled back on his haunches behind a group of four Phanpy's. The last Phanpy, entirely soaked, was over at the pool of Seels and was now sucking up water with its trunk to spout at the cheerful Water-types. Nine Seels remained, all currently collected around or in the pool.
