Samuel Oak's Research Log #1
Furret are a species of Pokemon that seem to resemble large ferrets, but also have features visually similar to stoats and weasels. Furret are quadrupedal by nature, but prefer to stand on their hind paws when fighting or socializing with others. At birth, furret have a previous physical stage referred to as a “sentret”, and instantaneously progress to the furret stage at around the age of 15. This progress is halted when it is near a substance known as an “everstone”. They have long bodies, with their abdomen and tail segmented into brown and cream stripes. It is unknown where the body of a furret ends and where its tail begins, however. Upon inquiring with one about the matter, it smiled and simply replied that it was a somewhat touchy subject. Furret also have somewhat large, cream-tipped ears, essential for detecting possible predators. Two brown colored stripes form under its eyes, but it is unrecognized as to why this is. Furret curl up around their young in the winter nights, as their fur has almost unparalleled insulating properties. Despite this, they aren’t hunted by human fur traders, because furret merchants often sell their shedded fur to anyone who needs it due to their excessive shedding at the season’s turn.

It is unknown where furret first originated, even to themselves. They don’t seem to worship any gods of their own, but some may pick up religions of other races. The earliest known record existing containing anything surrounding furret’s existence came from an unknown human researcher living in a society of dryads, who came across a small group of them, looking dazed and confused. Upon allowing them access to resources and land to become integrated with the dryad’s society, the furret began to dig burrows and grow crops almost immediately, wasting no time or effort. In an incredibly short amount of time, the furret started selling produce and mingling with the dryad townsfolk. The monarchy quickly recognized the furret as allies and the relationship between the two species flourished. To this day, almost every furret is able to speak Sylvan.
Samuel Oak's Research Log #3
Furret are a society of peace-loving folk, but will fight ferociously if they must. Each furret is assigned a function when they mature, and is represented by the color of scarf that they wear around their necks. These range from simple jobs, like farming or foraging represented by a grey and white scarf respectively, to warriors and nobles, who wear brown and indigo scarves respectively, with the most common scarf color being red representing a merchant. Furret towns are usually very near to or within sylvan towns due to the codependent relationship between the two races. Furret will happily assist dryads with any war or dispute that they may come across. Due to the society having such a large population of merchants, even the non-merchant furret are very good at estimating the worth of an item purely by looking at it.

Although these are names given to furret at birth, nicknames among the furret community are often used, based on prominent physical or behavioral features (examples of this include Noodle if the furret is especially long, or Spud if the furret's diet mainly consists of potatoes). Once a nickname is granted to the furret, it will often use its nickname to introduce itself instead of its birth name.
