The last time Jonesy had seen Jojo was June 2011, a day or two before the accident in the sewers if he remembered correctly. They had been close- he hesitated to ever call her a best friend out loud, given that she had other friends and he was sure she found most more important than him- but the word floated in his unspoken memory regardless. Summer had set into Castelia City, muggy and gross and all the things that she loved to complain about. They saw each other every couple of days during the vacation, provided Jojo hadn't gotten herself grounded from some stupid defiant stunt (not that it always mattered, she'd sneak out half the time anyway).
Whenever she was around, she was always a brilliant distraction. He found the Sylveon had this quality to her that demanded all the attention you could spare, and he was usually happy to give it to her. Make no mistake, she was an insufferable little shit, but it was nice to focus on someone else.
