This was it. The first step in Marley's journey in the Arciel Gym Challenge! Ok, so it wasn't called that here, but it was pretty much the same in Marley's eyes. He had originally hoped he would be doing this in Galar, but here was pretty good as well. Just not as big compared to the homeland. For one thing, it wasn't televised, or in a big stadium. But hey, it was still a big deal to him dammit!
His mind went over what he would need to do as he stepped into the gym. He had heard that this gym focused on water types, so he picked out his team accordingly. One of the best ways to handle a gym is type advantage after all. His heart was racing as he looked around, taking note of the large pool before him. And yet, there was no sign of the gym leader. Only a bunch of pool toys, poles and the like. Did he come during an off time? Did gyms have business hours or something? He looked around, wondering what was going on.
And then he saw the sign. He looked at it curiously before realizing what he needed to do. So, to face the gym leader, he needed to cross this pool without touching the water. Immediately his mind went to the gym challenges back home. Something the trainer had to do before facing the gym leader. A wide smile spread across Marley's face. "Oh hell yes." he said with a grin. Now this was more like it!
Looking at the pool before him, he started to strip down, removing his shirt, his coat, his shoes, though he kept his pants on for decency's sake. He looked around for something he could use, before his eyes spotted a log laying nearby. Hmm, worth a try he said, before moving the log into the water and stepping onto it. He had to be very careful, trying to keep his balance on the log. Now, lumberjacks did this, right? It shouldn't be too hard. Lumberjacks were basically the miners of the woods.
Trying to keep steady, he started to walk backwards, causing the log to roll forward.
