"What am I supposed to do with this thing until... like... YEARS from now, Lenny?!"
"Sell it and hope to get a deal."
The Nevermelt Ice that they had obtained would not be useful for quite some time... quite frankly, not useful at all considering that Black Ice had little talent for special techniques and none of them were powerful. Even if she were to learn one, they would be nowhere near the potential as it would be in the hands of another.
"Maybe if we're lucky we can trade it for something that pumps my shadow power! THAT would be handy!"
"Not considering the price tag. I would prefer to get you a Razor Claw, but that would be a long ways off. Perhaps we can sell this Luxury Ball we found as well."
Widening her eyes, she kept forgetting that Black Ice was... unique in being able to talk in the human language and held her head. Black Ice looked at the stares around her and rolled her eyes in a "whatever" fashion and crossed her arms.
"Yes... I taught my Pok?mon how to speak. I would like to sell this Nevermelt Ice and this luxury ball."
Meribel silently watched the commotion going on between Pok?mon and trainer, at first not knowing how to react. They seemed like a comical bunch, not really knowing what they were supposed to do with such a rare item. She frowned as the Nevermeltice was taken up to her front desk, not particularly wanting to buy it back. She'd probably be able to find someone out there willing to pay for it at a much higher price, but these things took time. She sighed and grudgingly took it back, paying Lenora the proper price before moving onto the next customer.
Abi was a familiar face, earning a smile from Meribel as she walked in. The Sticky Barb looked awfully painful to hold, so she took her big oven mitts off of the shelf and slipped them on. She really didn't know how Abi was holding it so effortlessly, but somehow she was. With a nervous smile, she claimed the item as her own and estimated the proper value. If this was about 7k in her shop, then 3.5k would be fair enough. She gave the decisive nod and finalized the trade, wishing Abi well with a faint nod.
+400 pd len +1,500 pd len +3500 Para
* Items can be sold back to the General Complex, save for berries and whatever is in the Prized Items section. Items sold back to the shop will be at half price, and you need to do the math.

if he had his maths right, he was able to sell the slowly pulsating stone sitting in his hand for eleven thousand pokedollars. he had no real need for it, so surely someone else would be able to make better use of the evolution item. the dawn stone was advertised within the shop for twenty-two thousand pokedollars, so he was glad he was selling it and not buying it. placing the stone gingerly on the counter, he coughed to clear his throat before saying to the slightly cute-looking lady, "i'd like to sell this to you, if you'd be so kind."
The next customer to walk in was a rather feminine looking male, though Meribel could clearly tell that she was looking at a guy. His face was thin, much like his frame, making him look rather awkward and lanky in the process. She silently nodded as he presented the shining Dawn Stone to her, looking as if it was in mint condition. Such a fine item was sure to be valuable someday, so she was more than glad to take it off of their hands.
She had to check the item roster extra quick to determine just how much it was worth. About 22,000 PD? So if a trainer was selling it to her, she'd give him about half of that. She could get a nice sum by selling it off at a much higher price. It might not seem like a fair deal, but it worked enough for her. She had to make a living somehow, even if she was giving away PD these days.
Nora walked into the store, a little bit more educated about purchasing than before. Her Pok?mon was stowed away for now as she entered the place as she looked for the clerk. It was about time that her Pok?mon reach the height of her potential, as there was little trade off between the evolved form and the non-evolved form of Sneasel. If she wanted an ice attack, she would simply purchase a TM, right?
Meribel the Touhou wasn't so fond of giving money away as she already was low from all the purchases she had made recently. She was actually a bit short on this month's rent which was a bit worrisome as the guy threatened her that if she could not sell 4000 PD worth of stuff in the next day she would lose the shop. Luckily for her, a customer walked in and asked to buy something worth 5000 PD. That gave her enough and one thousand to spare.
"Thank you! Thank you! You don't know how much this means to me!" She said as she took the 5000 PD and gave the trainer a Razor Claw."
She breathed a sigh of relief before she looked up to notice Nora still there. "Good luck! I hope it helps you in whatever way you need!" She said, then she walked away.

Huh! It was always weird when Meribel saw the same customer enter the shop a second time to buy something different this go around. This was exactly what happened when she encountered Nora again who wanted a few potions this go around after she had already gotten a razor claw.
Meribel wasn't one to turn away customer, although she didn't understand why people didn't just make everything in one large trip. "Sure thing! I can help you again!" She said as she picked up three potions, placed it in a goodie bag and handed it to the trainer.
"here you go! Thanks for the 900!" She said. Profit!!!

Tristan walked through the store, hoping to make a profit today. He had 2 items he did not need, so he figured that it was time to sell them. He approached the character, placing an icy rock and two psychic gems. "Hello there. I would like to sell these three items." He said to the shopkeeper. He groaned a little before waiting for the response
Meribel wasn't sure what was going through Tristan's mind as he casually strode into the store, but one thing was clear. He was doing it wrong. She shook her head in denial of the Psychic Jewels, gently pushing them back towards him. She had no use for such trivial things, though she had to admit. They were pretty. She just didn't want to pay for something that had little value. The Icy Rock was a decent enough thing to buy, and she gave it a glance over to make sure that everything was alright.
He groaned while waiting, earning a roll of the eyes. She was checking it out with a magnifying glass at this point to make sure that it was legit. The feel of the icy cold rock was enough for her, but she had to look for something in particular to make sure that it was real. Once found, she nodded her head gently. This was acceptable. She decided that since the price of the rock was usually 15k, she could buy it from him for about 7500 PD. It was a simple transaction, and honestly she was glad that she got it over with. Tristan looked like he was perving her.
ooc: Ted, your entire post is a mess. XD The shop doesn't sell jewels, the price just looks made up, and you suddenly switched from 2 to 3 items. No hussling, brah. Meribel will seriously ban you for a month, lololol.
Shion now walked into the general store. She had sold all of the shards she had been carrying so she could.buy some more stuff. Shopping was addictive when she actually had some money to spend. "I'll take the April pack and a mystic water please..." She pulled something out of her pocket. It was a choice scarf. "I'd like to sell this too."
Meribel saw another customer enter the shop and she was excited to fulfill their wish. "Touhou! Woo hoo! Yee hoo! Woot woot!" She said, not making any sense at all as she took the 8,000 PD and the choice scarf and returned with the April Package and Mystic water. "Enjoy this while you can. And nice! You are one of the first customers I ever had buy the April package! I hope you enjoy it!" She said as she handed the bag over to Shion.
The bag had a lot of good things, and the package was actually cheaper than some of the items in the bag themselves. It was a great, great, GRREEAT deal. And she really hoped Shion would appreciate it, because she definitely enjoyed putting it together.
"Hope it treats you well." She said after, as she left to go to the back.
Adam came in, knowing he had to stock up some items regarding his new adventure for the 3rd gym soon. Better safe than sorry. "Hi there. I'd like to buy 2 revives please, and 5 potions please." He said,bringing out a wad of cash, ready to pay the amount that was needed for the items. He was sure it wouldn't cost a lot, but he had the money for it anway.
Meribel was intrigued when Adam walked in and listed the items he wanted to purchase. "Revives and potions? You have a long battle ahead of you?" She asked as she took the money and went to the back to pick up the items before she returned with them in a big white plastic bag.
"Thank you for the business. Although if you are training, why not get a better item than potion? Potions heal so little health..." She said to Adam but she did not expect a response. He already got what he came for, so why stay?
-4500 PD +2 revives, 5 potions
Sam could not keep away from the general complex after seeing the appealing april prize. "I will have to get one." He said to Meribel, who looked at him and raised an eyebrow? "You will have to get one? Yes. Well I will just have to get a husband, but you don't see that happening!" She said jokingly, as she smiled and rubbed her head after.
This made Sam blush a bit. He never looked at the shopkeeper that way but he started to a bit there. And he also felt bad because he never paid and just demanded. "Sorry. Here, may I please have the April package?" He asked gently, to which Meribel nodded this time.
"Sure thing babe. Here you go!" She said as she handed the items to Sam to enjoy.
-10,000 PD +April Package

Skyler wandered into the general complex with a couple of items in hand, glancing around the area she didn't intend on buying anything at the moment, but she had a couple of items that she didn't need for now. Setting them on the counter she glanced at the female across the table. "I'd like to sell these please for 10, 000PD" Saying kindly the raven haired girl waited glancing around before noticing the april pack for shards, the rock, the berries and so on. "Can I have the april pack as well, i'd like to sell the damp rock in it."

"I'd like to sell this magnet and spelltag please, if possible?"
Magnet x1 = 1500 PD Spell tag x1 = 1500 PD Total = 3000 PD

He found himself returning to the store more and more in recent days, and yet, today would be the first day in his immediate recollection that he had purchased something. He wandered up to a shelf, taking a sandy coloured satchel off it, he took it to the counter immediately, placing it down followed by the correct amount of funds. "I'd like to buy this April pack please, but I'd like to sell the Damp rock back to the store right away, I have no use for it," he told the woman behind the counter.

Kenta, Portia the Spoink and Mahlah the Glameow walked into the store in order so he could purchase some items. He would need them for the next part of his journey and he wanted to make sure he had plenty of stuff. He browsed some for a bit, taking his hands and feel over everything carefully before going to the desk. "Excuse me Ma'am. I am sorry to bother you, but I am afriad that I need your help. I am blind and I was wondering if you could get me some stuff."
He pulled out a piece of paper that had typed letters on it before handing it to her he unfolded it.
Five Pokeballs – 1500 Five Great Balls – 3000 Five Hyper Potion – 3500
He placed it in front of her, or where he hoped would be in front of the clerk. "I hope I did the math correctly ma'am."
