An armful of leaves showered over Cricket's Ponyta as Cricket themself threw them. A lot of them burned to a crisp on Ponyta's mane and tail, but some of them were intact and twirled back to the ground. The little horse gave a whinny of joy and turned around to kick leaves up at her trainer in turn. Cricket laughed, running away from the kicked-up leaves and tripping, falling safely right into another leaf pile. The route was covered in leaves, and though the pair had started walking earlier this day to try to head to the next town, their mischievous nature meant that Cricket couldn't help but start a leaf fight with their Pokemon, and Ponyta was naturally inclined to join in.
She ran over to check on her trainer, face-down in a leaf pile, but was met with a faceful of leaves as Cricket tossed more leaves into the Pokemon's face. She whinnied in laughter and chased again. Unfortunately, this meant the pair left the path, and had wandered off into the wilderness, and when Cricket slowed down as they were tired out from running around, they realized that the path was gone and they had no idea even which direction to go in. Cricket looked around, then stood on her tip-toes and looked around again, then hopped up onto a low tree branch and looked, then turned to their Ponyta and gave a shrug.
"Well, hopefully it's not too cold for you, huh? You'll keep me warm though, won't you?" Ponyta danced away from Cricket, as if trying to keep her fire from warming her trainer, and Cricket laughed and chased her a ways again, getting them even more lost. They found themselves in an oak thicket, where the leaves were mostly gone so the trees were almost bare, but the ground was thick with fallen leaves and the brambles formed a barrier around them. "I guess.. we should go this way?" Cricket led the way through the thinnest part of the brambles, unsnagging themself from the thorns as they went. Ponyta followed behind, careful not to set fire to the plants.
