Finally I got my starter pokemon from professor Blaus and now I’m on my way to Nestelia City for my first gym battle. After walking through the forest for a few hours I see a joltik. “That has to be mine,” I yell but as soon as I get my pokeball I see another trainer ready to capture it. It was Drake, he’s always been my rival and now he wants my joltik. “Hey Drake let me get this one,” I say while waving hi. He ignores me and leaves. “Thanks,” I yell but he kept on walking, “how rude.” Oh well, “go tepig!” I say while I throw my pokeball. Joltik turns around and immediately spits out electrical web. “Dodge Tepig! Now use ember!” It hits. “now tackle!” Joltik dodges and uses shock wave hitting my tepig. “Common tepig! Use tackle!” Tepig uses all of his energy left for a powerful tackle, it hits. Joltik faints and I use my pokeball. 1, 2, 3. YES, joltic was captured. I check at his level using my pokedex. Level 9, nice my Tepig is level 10. I keep on walking through the path when I notice…im lost. I knew this would happen but luckily I hear a river. That’s good, if I follow it I’ll arrive at the next town. As im walking I close my eyes and then “Bump” and then I hear a scream and a big “sploosh.” “You stupid boy you pushed me into the river!” “I am so sorry” I say as I help her up. “Forget it! Anyway you lost my fishing rod in the water so you owe me a new one!” she says. “Well lets go to the next city and see if I can buy you a new one, by the way wats your name?” JUAN IS RAW I ask. “It's Natalie thanks for asking, so what do you need at the next city?” she asks. “Well im going to challenge the gym leader” I respond. “Well what coincidence so am I” she says. Well I guess going to the next town with her isn’t so bad, at least she knows how to get there.
CH2 On my way to the 2nd gym
After a day in the forest Natalie and I arrive at Nestelia City. "wow it's huge!" I say as I see all of the buildings. "come on Nick" says Natalie. As we're passing through the city I notice many stores and the pokemon centre. "so Natalie where is the gym?"I ask. "first let's go to the fishing shop u do owe me a fishing rod" says Natalie. We get to the shop. "sorry guys we're closing shop and moving to the next city"says the manager. "oh great that means we have to wait to the next city" says natalie. "well let's find that gym now" I say. Sadly neither of us knew where the gym was. We walked around until we found a large building with a huge poke ball next to it. "this must be it" said Natalie. "I'll challenge the gym leader first, since you still haven't gotten me a new fishing rod". There was no fighting with her. "ok fine, at least I'll know what kind of pokemon the first gym leader uses" I say. As we walk in Sabrina, the gym leader turns around and see's us. "I guess I have a few challengers today" she says "well choose your three pokemon girl" THREE? I have only 2 that means I have to get another one, but natalie has more than three, I wonder what they are. The fight started. "go lillipup" said Sabrina. "go oshawott"said Natalie. I slipped out of the gym during the battle to get my third pokemon. I have no idea what pokemon I wanted. I walked around until I found a building sight. I saw a timburr walking around. Looking for something. I noticed a big piece of wood at the other side of the building site and rushed to tell him. As I came near him he ran off. I found his wood stick and brought it with me. "timburr!" I yelled. The timburr came out and took his wooden stick. I started walking when I notice he is following and I decided then timburr would be my 3rd pokemon. "Timburr will you join me on my adventure?"he nodded. One two three. I captured timburr. I slipped into the gym again. "good job Natalie, you win"said Sabrina. Darn it I missed the fight. "well nick, your up tomorrow" said Natalie on our way out of the gym. "hope your prepared, she's tough" well then I better get a good nights sleep.
CH3 First gym battle
Am I ready? I'm standing in front of the gym in Nestelia city, and I finally decide to go in, it is pretty good morning to have a battle. I stand at the end of the stadium. "are you ready challenger?" asks the gym leader sabrina, "what's your name trainer?" "Nick" I said. "Then let this battle START!" yelled Sabrina. "go lillipup" "go tepig" I had checked my pokedex at night and so far had a level 12 tepig, a level 11 joltik and a level 10 timburr. "lillipup quick use agility!" lillipup started running and turned into a blur" "tepig target lillipup and use ember!" I said, but it missed. "lillipup use bite!" it hit! "tepig!" I yelled, "please get up but this time wait for lillipup to attack and use ember!" lillipup came around for another bite and bam, ember hit. "now use flame charge!" tepig used flame charge and his speed also rose, hitting lillipup. "lillipup use pound!" tepig use flame charge again, both collided. Tepig was still standing but lillipup wasn't. "lillipup fainted" yelled the referee." Nicely done nick but don't get confident, go Pansear!"said Sabrina. "Pansear use scratch!" it hit. "Tepig hold on, use tackle!" it hit. "Pansear flamethrower aim at his feat" "tepig flame charge!" Pansear hit and tripped tepig with his flamethrower. "tepig fainted!" yelled the referee. "go joltik!" I said, "use Electroweb!" it hit Pansear slowing it down. "Pansear flamethrower and scratch!" His flamethrower hit. "joltik hurry use fury cutter!" because Pansear was slowed down by Electroweb joltik hit first. "now finish with shockwave joltik" it hit. "Pansear fainted" said the referee. "impressive but here comes the champion!" said Sabrina, "go Darumaka!" "joltik use Electroweb" it hit. "Darumaka now use fire punch!" it hit my joltik causing it to faint. "joltik fainted" said the referee. "go timburr and use Wake up slap" "darumaka fire punch" they both collided, but darumaka seemed slower, it had to be Electroweb! "timburr throw up your log to gain speed and use low kick!" "darumaka fire punch!" timburr hit first and made darumaka trip and miss. "now catch your log and use rock throw" "darumaka use flamethrower" both attacks hit but timburr's was super effective. "darumaka is unable to battle, Nick wins!" yelled the referee. "Good job you deserve this badge" said Sabrina as she gave me the fire emblem.
CH4 A new rival
"come on nick lets move we need to get to the next city as soon as possible!" yelled Natalie. "ok ok stop whining"I yelled back and earned a dirty look from her. We were heading out from nestelia city to charcanove ville, Where the second gym is. As we started running I heard a ring and then SLAM. I got run over by a bike. "I am so sorry" yelled a boy as he stopped his bike. "I'm soooo sorry! My names Kevin by the way, you see Im heading to charcanove now for my second badge!" said Kevin while helping me up. "well Kevin I have only one question to ask since you ran me over and beat the last gym leader. Will you battle?" we both smiled, we were both pumped up and ready for the battle. "NO NICK, we have to get to the next city!!!" yelled Natalie. "come on natalie it will be a short battle, right Kevin?" "sure I'll beat him fast" said Kevin with a smile. That's it I'm taking him down!!! "fine a one on one battle" agreed Natalie. "go Mudkip!"Said Kevin. "go Timburr" I yelled. I looked into Kevin's eyes and saw his passion for fights, from now on we we are rivals! Kevin surprised me with a tackle from mudkip. "mudkip use mud slap!" timburr got on his log and and it missed. "now timburr jump and wake up slap!" timburr hit mudkip at close range. "mudkip get him away with water gun and use mud slap!" water gun hit timburr knocking him away. "Timburr use ur log to block mud slap and use rock throw" timburr did so and hit mudkip with rock throw and blocked mud slap. "mudkip tackle!" "timburr throw ur log up for speed and hit him with low kick" low kick hit and made mudkip miss by tripping him. "mudkip now use water gun to get the log as far away from timburr as possible" So that was his plan! Timburr's log was knocked away. "timburr wake up slap, now!" mudkip dodged it. "use mudslap mudkip!" "Timburr run straight into the mud and reach mudkip, then use wake up slap with the rest of your power!!!" timburr hit the the mud but kept walking and reached mudkip. BAM timburr made it! But they were both standing. Finally mudkip fell. "good job nick maybe on the next town we'll also battle!" Kevin said as he rode away. "let's go nick we have to go too!" said natalie. I checked my pokedex. Tepig was level 14, timburr level 14 and joltik level 13.
CH 5 Mountain trail
We were several minutes into the forest, we were heading up into the mountain to cross to charcanove ville. As soon as we got near the mountain trail I saw a small moving rock. Wait no that was rongenrola! "pokemon!!!" I yelled and ran towards it. "Nick get back here!" yelled Natalie but I was to pumped up and looking forwards to catch my 4th pokemon. The rogenrola kept running up wards then jumped. I had to stop with all my force not to fall into the small rocky hill. Right then natlie ran into me and we both rolled down the hill. "see what happens when u act careless!" said natalie. "I'm sorry" I said as I made sure I didn't break anything. "how do we get out?" I said. But the answer was obvious, through the cave opening in front of us. We kept on walking through the dark tunnel for a few mins. When we saw a light. Yes! But as we got closer we saw they were just bright diamond like crystals. Then I saw the rogenrola I was chasing yes! I threw a poke ball at it but missed and hit a....Gigalith? "oh shoot" I said as natalie realised that the gigalith was pissed off. "Ahhhhhhh" we yelled as we ran away. We finally found our way out of the cave but gigalith was still at our tail. We had to fight it. "go tepig" "go oshawott" we both sent out our pokemon. As soon as gigalith saw us it used stone edge hitting my tepig. "oshawott use water gun" it hit but gigalith was too strong. It used earthquake and knocked both our pokemon out. It was about to use stone edge when water pulse hit it. Apparently a frillish had been hit by stone edge after hitting tepig. "go timburr" "go lillipup" we both said. "use wake up slap timburr! And frillish use water pulse and help us out" apparently the frillish was ok with taking orders from me. "lillipup use bite" all the attacks hit and the gigalith ran away. "thanks frillish" I said as we walked away. We went up a hill and from the top saw charcanove ville. But before we cud go down I turned around and saw frillish following us. "I think he likes u nick, he wants to battle besides you"said Natalie. "you wan a join me in more battles frillish?" I said as I threw my poke ball. It nodded. One, two, three. I caught it. I checked my pokedex, Frillish was level 14.
CH6 Drake, first battle
As we were getting to the entrance of charcanove ville I saw someone leaning against a tree. It was drake. I stopped, unfortunately I didn't warn Natalie which caused her to run over me. Drake just looked at the ground as if he was ashamed of knowing me. I stood up and yelled "drake wats up long time no see!" he came walking this way and then Natalie elbowed me, "who is that HOT guy walking over here?!" she looked at me like he was out of my friend league. "an acquaintance" I said. "so nick I see u were strong enough to beat that weak gym leader. Or at least less weak than him." said Drake with a smirk. "oh yea well wan a prove how weak my pokemon are?" I said. "let's battle!" we both said. Natalie was still looking at drake. "ok an easy two vs two" said drake. "go tepig" "go Tympole" "Tepig use flame charge" I said. "tympole use super sonic" it hit tepig making him confused and causing him to crash into a rock. "tepig!" I yelled. "now tympole use bubble beam" it hit tepig. "Tepig use flame charge" but he was still confused and missed. "tympole mud shot" it hit! "Tepig!!!" he could barely stand up. "Come on tepig flame charge!" "tympole use bubble beam" tepig dodged and slammed into tympole. "now tackle" with his increased speed it hit first. "tympole grab onto his tail" tympole wouldn't let go. "now mud shot!" it fainted my tepig. "go joltik!" I sent out joltik. "use electroweb" it was super effective. "tympole mud shot!" it hit, super effective. "now joltik, with his lowered speed use fury cutter!" It fainted tympole. "go snivy, use leaf tornado!" it hit and lowered joltik's accuracy. "use electroweb joltik!" snivy dodged it easily, "now use growth" snivy's atk and sp atk rose. "joltik fury cutter!" It was super effective. "vine whip snivy" it hit. "joltik use shock wave!" snivy jumped over it. "now snivy leaf tornado from the air!" it hit and smacked joltik against a rock. Joltik fainted. "not too bad Nick, but not good enough" he said as he walked away. "I'll win next time! I promise! your with me right Natalie?" I saw her looking where drake used to be. She turned and faced me, "he is HOT" she said. I turned around and kept walking towards charcanove ville.
CH7 Charcanove ville pre-gym training
As we arrived at charcanove ville we saw a fishing shop and a guy unloading crates. "excuse me sir is the store open?" asked Natalie. "not right now but we are opening tomorrow". "well we're gonna have to wait a day, might as well train to fight the gym leader" said natalie. "oh if you two need to train I know a battle station in this town, u just keep walking through that route" said the man pointing to a street. Finally we arrived at a large building with huge columns, as we walked in we saw many training machines. "hello my names jack, tell me what field do you want to train your pokemon in, that is speed, atk, def" said jack,"but if your here for the gym leader then I would recommend all of them since he uses rock types." I got into a machine with several targets made of wood, rock and iron; Natalie chose a track field with obstacles, she chose speed, I chose attack. "ok go tepig let's get this done!" I said as I threw out his poke ball. "level one" the machine said and the wooden Targets started to move. "tepig use ember!" he hit several targets burning them. "now flame charge" he missed some but broke others. "level two" said the machine. Now it was the rock targets. It took tepig a while to have enough power to destroy them or even hit them, but he finally did it. "level 3" said the machine. Now came the steel targets. Tepig couldn't do much more than damage or dent them but at the end he hit all of them. I did the same exercise on timburr. As I was done I went to the speed section. Natalie had move on to the attack course like mine. "go joltik!" joltik was fast and I wanted to use this in the battle. We had to run around the track each time faster as obstacle appeared that we had to jump and dodge. We passed levels 2 and 3. I had made it only to level 2 but joltik finished even level 3. Now I wanted to train jellicent's sp def. A machine that fired canons was set up there. Jellicent had to dodge some of the blasts and block with his body the rest. Jellicent went through all the 3 levels. My entire team now looked stronger but I couldn't find Natalie. I walked out of the battle station and I saw Natalie running back here. "nick! I finished fast my training and I went for a walk, so I saw and captured my fourth pokemon!!" yelled Natalie. "you see I found this abandoned cubchoo and he wanted to come with me!" she said. So now Natalie had an oshawott, lillipup, pidove, and cubchoo. "well lets hope we're ready for the gym leader tomorrow" I said. As always Natalie chose to fight him first.
CH8 second gym battle
I woke up. Started to get up and as I looked at the clock...."OH SHOOT" I yelled. I was about 2hours late of waking up. Surely I missed natalie's battle. As I sprint towards the gym I saw Natalie walking back with a badge. "hey Natalie you won?" I asked. "yea, and the gym leader is ready for you, now he is TOUGH!" she said smiling. Wow thanks for that pep talk. Anyways I got to the gym a saw a well built miner. "hello you must be nick", he asked, "I'm Johan nice to meet you" "let's battle Johan" I said. "go roggenrola" "go Joltik" "roggenrola use Harden" roggenrola became harder, he's def must be high now. "joltik use Electroweb" it hit slowing down roggenrola. "speed isn't everything" he said. "roggenrola use rock blast!" it hit super effective. "shockwave joltik!" it hit. "now use fury cutter!" "harden roggenrola" it hit but it made almost no damage. "roggenrola use head butt and then rock blast" both hit fainting my joltik. "go frillish" "use water pulse" it hit. "now roggenrola rock blast" it hit. "frillish use water pulse again!" "rock blast roggenrola" but roggenrola didn't move, this must be frillish's curse body disabling his rock blast. Water pulse hit fainting roggenrola. "good job nick let's see how you handle, onix!" he sent out onix. "onix sandstorm!" a sandstorm steered up. "night shade frillish!" it hit onix. "onix use Screech!" it hit frillish lowering his def. "frillish water pulse!" "onix dig" water pulse missed. "onix now!" it hit frillish. Frillish use recover. Frillish recovered some hp. But his hp was being sapped by sandstorm. "onix use rock Tomb" it hit lowering jellicents speed. "jellicent night shade!" it hit. "now use water pulse" "onix use screech" screech hit and so did water pulse. Onix fainted. "yeah frillish!!" but his def was really down now. "go dwebble" said Johan. "dwebble use smack down!" it hit frillish hard. "frillish use recover" frillish recovered some hp. "now bug bite and then smack down" Both attacks hit. "frillish water pulse!" "dwebble withdraw" dwebble went inside its shell and received little damage from water pulse. "dwebble use smack down!" it hit fainting frillish. "go timburr!" "use wake up slap" "dwebble withdraw" timburr's attack did little damage. "now timburr use low kick!" it hit. "smack down then bug bite dwebble!" both attacks hit from close range. "dwebble bug bite!" "timburr block it with your log!" dwebble bit on the log. "now use wake up slap" it hit. "use rock throw" "dwebble withdraw" once again almost no damage. I have to get through that def or attack it before withdraw or I will lose. "throw your log timburr and use wake up slap a max speed!" "he won't make it in time, dwebble withdraw and prepare for close range bug bite" but before dwebble used withdraw timburr's hand glowed blue and he became a blur and appeared in front of dwebble. SMASH. Dwebble fainted. "timburr learned MACH PUNCH!" I yelled. "I didn't expect that" said Johan,"congratulations, here's your shield emblem" He handed me the badge. "I won!" I yelled.
CH9 Whose the sketchy figure...figures!
"Natalie guess who just won the shield emblem!" I yelled as I found Natalie. But Natalie didn't hear me, she was talking to a little girl who seemed to be crying. "what's the problem?" I asked as I got there. "apparently some guys in a red and black uniform stole this girls pokemon!" explained Natalie. "they had strong pokemon so I couldn't do anything for my minccino" the little girl said in between cries. "its ok, I'll bring it back, I promise" I said, "come on Natalie lets find out where those guys went". We asked people around for those shady characters until they led us to an abandoned building. A character dressed like somewhat as a fancy cop with red and black cloths came out. "what do you want kids this isn't a play zone" the man said. "go tepig!" I said as I chose tepig. His Woobat didn't stand a chance. We barged inside the building, but there were about another 20 red-black cop guys in there. "oh shoot" I said, "we are screwed." Right then a lady dressed in a red, black and white dress came out. "well what can I do for you?" she said with a smile. "give us back the stolen pokemon" I said, "who are you?!" "little boy we are team chronos and I'll make you a deal" she said, "if you beat me, kassandra, one of team chronos's captains, then I will give back your pokemon and leave, but if I win, you will give me your pokemon" I couldn't say no, I had promised that little girl. "fine" I said. She smiled. "nick are you sure?!" asked Natalie. "this will be a 2 vs 2 battle" she said, "go purrloin!" she send out a cat-like pokemon. "go tepig" "tepig use ember!" "purrloin fake out!" fake out hit and tepig flinched. "now purrloin use fury swipes!" it hit about 4 times. "tepig!" I yelled. Tepig stood up and started glowing. Tepig evolved into pignite!!! "now pignit use flame charge!" pignite slammed into purrloin. "purrloin use pursuit and then fury swipes!" pursuit hit but pignite dodged fury swipes. "now use tackle pignite!" instead pignite opened his palm and hit purrloin repeatedly. "that's arm thrust!" I said. It was super effective and fainted purrloin. "lucky shot boy!" said kassandra, "go woobat!" "now woobat use Air cutter and then heart stamp!" one attack was psychic and the othe air, both were super effective. "come on pignite use ember!!" it hit woobat. "assurance woobat" pignite fainted. "go joltik!" "now use Electroweb!" it hit slowing down woobat. "woobat use air cutter!" joltik dodged. "joltik use fury cutter and then shock wave!" both attacks hit fainting woobat. "I keep my word" said kassandra, "here's minccino, let's move out team chronos! But nick next time we meet I WILL destroy you" great first task to do: add her to my people who want to destroy me list. We gave back the minccino to the crying girl and we started to head out from charcanove ville. "wait nick" said natalie, "let's get my fishing rod first"
CH10 Rival rematch!
We bought natalie's fishing rod and headed out to sernesia city, where our third gym leader is. Then we saw a familiar figure on his bike. "Kevin!!!!" I yelled. He turned around and started waving at us when SMASH he hit a rock and went face first on the floor. "are you ok?" asked Natalie as I helped Kevin up. "yeah I was just testing how firm the ground was!" he said while smiling, "so nick did you beat the gym leader?" "you bet!" I said. We both looked at each other. "BATTLE" we both said. "you have to stop battling everyone nick!" said Natalie. I simply shooed her away, earning a slap. "ok let's start nick!" said Kevin, "ready to lose?" you have to love kevin's sense of humor. "3 vs 3 battle" I said. "go pignite!" "go Marshtomp!" "pignite use flame charge!" he slammed into marshtomp but that didn't do much. "that wasn't a good plan" said Kevin "marshtomp use mud shot!" with pignite's increased speed he dodged it. "now pignite arm thrust" it hit 5 times! "pignite arm thrust again!" but something was wrong, Kevin didn't attack or defend!? Pignite hit 2 times. "now marshtomp release your bide! Shoot!!! he was holding bide this whole time?! it hit "now marshtomp close range water gun. It hit fainting my pignite. "go timburr!" "mud shot marshtomp!" "timburr block it with your log and then low kick!" timburr blocked and hit marshtomp. "marshtomp water gun this time aim at his feet!" it hit timburr causing him to fall and drop his log. "now use mud shot!" "timburr use Mach punch!" timburr turned into a blur and smashed into marshtomp. Marshtomp fainted. "go Aron!" "Use metal claw on timburr!" it hit. "timburr get back your log!" timburr ran for his log. "aron quick use dig!" Aron dug into the ground, timburr grabbed his log. "now aron!" Aron used dig and sprang from the ground slamming into timburr. "timburr use low kick" it hit. "Aron metal claw" it hit. "timburr Mach punch!" "Aron iron defense!" it was super effective but aron's defense was high. "now Aron metal claw!" timburr fainted. "go frillish!" "frillish use water pulse!" "iron defense Aron!" Aron was hit but he didn't take much damage. "now Aron use metal claw" frillish hide behind a rock!" Aron couldn't attack. "wait for him to move Aron!" what if my attack doesn't include moving? "shadow sneak frillish" Aron got hit. "use it again frillish!" it hit. "Aron dig!" my third shadow sneak missed. SLAM, dig hit. "frillish water pulse!" Aron fainted. "go swellow!" "swellow use pluck!" it hit frillish. "frillish recover! And water pulse!" "swellow wing attack" frillish recovered some hp but was hit by wing attack. "now swellow use Double team!" "frillish water pulse!!!" but it hit one of the clones. "swellow wing attack" it hit. I smiled "frillish use recover" "swellow wing attack!" swellow didn't move. "huh?!" said Kevin. Frillish recovered hp, "frillish use water pulse!" it hit "now night shade!" "swellow use wing attack!" swellow didn't move and night shade smashed into swellow. Then Kevin realized frillish's cursed body effect. Wing attack had been disabled! "quick swellow use pluck!" swellow dived towards frillish. "frillish use night shade!" night shade hit...but swellow kept on going! SLAM swellow used pluck and frillish fainted. "I WIN!" yelled Kevin as he started riding his bike. "next time I'll get you Kevin!" I yelled back.
CH11 Ice cream?
I checked my pokedex to check my pokemon's level on our way to sernsesia city. Pignite was level 24, timburr level 24, joltik and frillish both level 23. I still had no idea how powerful natalie's team was but I was dying to see her battle. My thoughts were interrupted by natalie. "is that an ice-cream shop!?" said Natalie. We stood before a big ice cream palace. "I've heard of this place, it's the ice cream palace in-between the 2 cities" I said. "but why is it empty?" asked Natalie. She had a point, a huge ice cream place like this...alone? We went inside to find an old man sweeping and asked him what happened. "well I had several vanillite's here that helped make the ice cream and keep the shop tidy. But one of them went bad and led the others into a rebellion! This little guy here was the only one that stayed" said the man pointing at the shy vanillite. "this little one could lead the rest back, but he isn't battle experienced and can't fight the bad vanillite" the ice cream man explained. "well mr don't you worry, I'll get your vanillites back!" I said. Natalie looked at me with that 'can't we just ignore this' look. We took the small vanillite to train. We worked on his dodging by shooting ember towards him and having him evade it. He got scorched the first few times but by the end he was dodging like a pro. Next we worked on his aim by having him shoot "icy wind" at targets. Eventually he got the hang of that too. Apparently he could use icy wind, avalanche, and uproar. Finally we worked on his speed by having him chase joltik until he could grab the bell off his back. "good job vanillite" I said, "let's get the vanillite's back I told him and Natalie." we found the group of vanillites in the forest and the bad one came forward. "vanillite use icy wind!" it hit slowing the other vanillite down. It used icy wind too. "vanillite dodge that icy wind!" he dodged both, "now use uproar" it hit "get close and let him attack you!" vanillite did what I said. The other vanillite used uproar, it hit. "Now vanillite avalanche!" it's powered doubled since vanillite was hit before using it, it hit fainting the other vanillite. "yes" I yelled! We got the vanillites back to the ice cream man. "thank you so much!!!!" he said. "no problem" me and Natalie said. As we were leaving the shy vanillite pulled on my pant. "do you wan a come with me vanillite?" I asked. It nodded, I looked up and the ice cream man nodded telling me to capture him. One, two, three. I captured vanillite! I checked my pokedex, it was level 24.
CH12 Double trouble
We were close too arriving to sernesia city when I heard battling. "this way!" I said as I directed Natalie towards the sound. When we got to the edge of the forest we saw 2 big guys shoving a kid down. "so what will you give me since you lost the battle?!" said the big bully leader. "I don't have much" said the crying kid, "please don't hurt me" "Hey leave that kid alone!!" I yelled, now was I being courageous or stupid? The kid sprinted away but the guys were looking at me. "you let the kid go away!" the bully said, "you owes us, pay us" "only if you beat me in a battle!" i said. "it will be a double battle with 2 players each, where is your 2nd player?" asked the big guy. "Natalie?" I asked as I looked at her. "If they don't kill you, I will" she said looking at me angrily. That was her nice way of saying she would help me. "go vanillite!" "go Herdier" we sent out our pokemon. "go palpitoad" said both of the guys sending 2 palpitoads. "herdier use work up!" herder got pumped up and raised his attack. "palpitoad mud shot" said both of the guys, two mud shots flew towards vanillite. "vanillite dodge!!!" vanillite dodged one but got hit by the other. "vanillite use icy wind" it hit one of the palpitoads. "mud shot palpitoad" palpitoad was about to use mid shot when, "herdier use crunch!" herdier hit and cause palpitoad to flinch. "vanillite use uproar on palpitoad" it hit fainting one palpitoad. "Palpitoad use water gun on herdier" it hit. "herdier use take down!" it hit damaging herdier a little. Palpitoad fainted. The two guys backed away. "that's right we won said!" I yelled. "nick we are in trouble" said Natalie. "why?" I asked as I realized there were 2 more guys in front of us. "your going to have to beat all of us" they said. We were in serious fudge when a Servine and an oshawott appeared in front of me. "hey guys" said Kevin. "you are so weak" said drake. I was actually glad to see drake, and Kevin we would definitely win. After beating them we waved goodbye and they left. Right then natalie kicked me down the hill. "how dare you embarrass me in front of drake!!!!" roared Natalie, "I looked like a wimp!" ouch was the only thing I could say. We were finally arriving at the city when drake popped out. "if you don't beat me right now I won't let you enter" he said with a cold stare, "back then I felt like you didn't deserve your tepig" I couldn't say anything, but he was right, I was scared and doubted myself. I smiled and said "it's on!" I turned to see natalie mouth SO HOT, but she obviously wasn't referring to me.
CH13 Tension between rivals
"nick you better show me what you've got!" said drake. "oh I will" I said, "go pignite!" "go Servine!" "pignite use flame charge and gain speed!" "Servine use vine whip!" it hit making pignite stop in middle flame charge. That Servine is fast. "pignite use ember!" "dodge Servine and use leaf tornado" Servine dodged and slammed leaf tornado on pignite. He's way too fast, I need to increase my speed if only I could block Servine from using vinewhip. "I got it! Pignite use ember and scatter your flames as a wall in front of you!" pignite blew the fire making a fire wall in front of him. "now use flame charge!" "Servine growth" Servine's attack and sp attack increased. "now pignite!" "Servine dodge" he dodged and pignite missed by a little. "pignite use flame charge again for more speed and use the flame wall again with ember!" it worked but "Servine use Mega drain!" it started absorbing pignite's hp! "quick pignite use flame charge!" Servine tried dodging but pignite was a little to fast and brushed against him. "now Servine leaf tornado" SLAM, pignite looked much worse than Servine. "Servine vine whip!" "pignite scatter ember and try using it as a shield" it won't work I thought, but instead pignite started spreading a purple gas. "that's smog!" I yelled. As Servine touched it with it's vines it got hit by a super effective poison attack and it also got poisoned. "now use flame charge pignite!" it slammed into Servine. "Servine use mega drain!" but it was too late for Servine. "pignite ember!" it hit fainting Servine. "good job nick" said drake, "thought you might lose there, go palpitoad!" Shoot! That's a water and ground, smog and fire type attack won't do a thing. "pignite use your speed and use Arm thrust!" it hit, hitting palpitoad 4 times. "palpitoad mud shot!" it hit. "pignite come on use arm thrust!" pignite was a little slower and about to fain but he charged. "stop him with uproar!" palpitoad used uproar and sent a massive amount of sound waves towards pignite, he fainted. "go Vanillite!" I said, "use icy wind!" it hit slowing down palpitoad. "palpitoad use mud shot!" "vanillite dodge and get closer!" vanillite dodged and got closer to palpitoad. "use bubble beam palpitoad!" it hit, "now vanillite, use avalanche!" it got double the power and slammed into plapitoad. I looked at drake and he was surprised. "nice strategy" said drake, "palpitoad use uproar!" "vanillite use uproar!" both attacks hit, but vanillite had been hit only once, BOOM palpitoad was hit with uproar and fainted. "that's a strong vanillite you have there" said drake, "go Pansear!" a fire type, not the best for vanillite. "Pansear use yawn!" it hit vanillite making ti drowsy. "vanillite use icy wind!" "Pansear run towards vanillite and use bite!" icy wind hit but Pansear kept running as if nothing hat hit him. BITE, Pansear hit vanillite. "now vanillite use avalanche!" it hit, double power, but it still didn't do much. "Pansear use fury swipes!" it hit 3 times. "now vanillite...." vanillite fell asleep. "Flame burst Pansear" it hit fainting vanillite. Pansear was just stalling until vanillite fell asleep. "go frillish!" I said, "use water pulse!" "dodge and use fury swipes Pansear!" Pansear dodged but fury swipes went right through frillish. "he's a ghost type" I said! "I know" said drake. Then why did he...oh no. "Pansear use yawn!" frillish got drowsy. I have to finish this now! "frillish use water pulse!" Pansear dodged, at this rate frillish will fall asleep, unless... "frillish use night shade where Pansear will land!" it hit Pansear, tripping him. "now use water pulse!" Pansear couldn't dodge it, BAM water pulse hit fainting Pansear. "good job, you might just make it past this city" said drake, "after all I did let you win" "I won by myself!!!" I yelled. But he was already walking away. "did you see that!?" Natalie said, "i think he looked at me, that must mean something!!!" I slapped myself, how could Natalie like him!?
CH14 A girl named cherry
We finally got in sernesia city. It was a large town, not full of buildings like nestelia city but nevertheless it was a big city full of houses, schools, and the new pokemon center, they had moved the old one. We were walking along when Natalie left me to go shopping. When I heard a girl yell, "hey thats my poke ball! Thief!" I saw a red and black sort of cop running and a girl my age running behind him. She was wearing a skirt and a shirt with a poke ball on it. "help!" she yelled again. I tackled the guy. "get away" he yelled, "go woobat!" "go joltik, use shock wave!" it fainted the woobat. "g...go purrloin!" I was about to attack with joltik when "Arm thrust!" and a pignite slammed 3 arm thrusts at purrloin, fainting it. The man dropped the poke ball and ran away. "thank you so much" said the girl with a smile, "the guy had my prized cherubi, my names cherian but you can call cherry" she seemed so nice. "no problem" I said "im nick, nice to meet you cherry, that's a powerful pignite you have there!" "yeah it was my starter, I know I don't look like it but I'm a new trainer" she said shyly. "me too!" I said "I'm actually here for my 3rd badge" "I already got it" she said showing me the badge. "well cherry how about we have a battle?" I asked. "well we could battle or we could walk around" she said blushing a little. "I..I..I mean if you want to walk around I'm fine with that.." I said mentally palming my face. She grabbed my arm and we started walking around. We went into several shops, and a cartoon artist even drew us! After we ate it was getting late and I had my battle tomorrow, and I STILL couldn't find Natalie. "hey cherry this was really fun but I think I should go now, its getting kind of late and I have to look for my partner" I said. "well I'm going to be cheering for you to win tomorrow!" she said. We looked at each other and blushed, but then we simply shook hands and left. "see ya tomorrow!" she yelled while aging bye. I was a bit conflicted when I saw Natalie with about 16 shopping bags. "sorry went a little overboard" she said. As we head out from the market place I checked my pokemons stats, pignite level 26, joltik 24, Timburr 26, vanillite 25 and frillish 24. I had to focus, after all I can't look like a wimp in front of cherry I thought blushing once again.
CH15 My third gym battle
As always Natalie took off early to battle the gym leader. I, on the other hand, woke up late and started asking people if they knew anything about the gym leader. I found out he used flying types, I know exactly what pokemon to use now. As I got to the gym Natalie waved at me, she had won. Inside the gym leader saluted me. "so, nick, are you ready for this battle" he said, "my names Braden by the way!" "I'm ready Braden!" I said full of energy. "go emolga!" "go vanillite!" yes I have the type advantage. "emolga Use charge!" emolga started storing electrical energy, this could be a proble. "vanillite use uproar!" it hit! "now emolga use electroball!" this was bad, emolga was way faster than vanillite making electroball super powerful and emolga had used charge raising his sp attack and electroball's power. "dodge vanillite!" vanillite dodged right in time but "emolga spark!" "wait for it and use avalanche!" spark hit and vanillite used double power super effective avalanche! "emolga now use electroball" vanillite couldn't dodge, it slammed into vannilite, I have to do something about emolga's electroball.... That's it! "use icy wind repeatedly!" vanillite used icy wind over and over again hitting several times and slowing emolga down, yet emolga used spark and electroball to weaken vanillite, both looked like they were gonna faint. "now vanillite finish with uproar!" "emolga electroball!" both attacks hit but since emolga was now really slow, uproar won, fainting emolga. "go tranquill!" "vanillite use icy wind" "aerial ace tranquill!" icy wind hit but didn't stop tranquill, aerial ace hit fainting vanillite. "go frillish! use water pulse!" Tranquill dodged, "now use Air cutter and then aerial ace!" "frillish use night shade" tranquil hit with air cutter, then night shade hit tranquill but tranquill aerial aced frillish. I smiled frillish's effect activated (cursed body). "now frillish recover and water pulse!" frillish recovered hp. "tranquill quick, use aerial ace!" tranquill didn't move. Water pulse then hit! Tranquil fainted. "what did you do there?" asked braden, "go swellow!" "frillish water pulse!" "double team swellow!" water pulse hit a clone. "swellow use pluck!" it hit activating frillish's effect. "now frillish water pulse!" "swellow dodge and pluck!" swellow didn't move. BAM water pulse hit. "quick swellow use double team" water pulse hit a clone this time. "I see whats going on! Pluck was disabled!" said Braden, "swellow wing attack!" wing attack hit fainting frillish. "go joltik!" "use Electroweb!" but this time joltik moved fast and hit swellow with a ball of light. "that's electroball!" said Braden. "joltik use fury cutter!" but instead joltik's arms glowed white and it hit swellow, "that's slash!" I said. "swellow wing attack!" it hit. "electroball joltik!" swellow used double team and it hit it's clone. "swellow wing attack and then double team!" it hit and swellow used doubly team. "that's it SHOCKWAVE max power joltik!" it hit all of the clones including swellow, swellow fainted. "good job" said Braden, "you deserve this badge, the flight emblem!" I got my third badge. "yes!!!!" I yelled.
CH16 The first orb, celebi green
As we got out of the gym we found Kevin and cherry. "darn it, I'm too late!" said cherry. "sorry, my fault I challenged her to a battle" said Kevin, "she won". "I AM strong after all" said cherry winking at me. "well Kevin wanna see if I'm stronger than you too?" I said, "let me just rest my pokemon in the pokemon center first" we headed down to the pokemon center, and as we were going to go in, the earth shook and a big explosion activated. We got inside to find a bunch of team chronos members guarding a huge crater in the middle of the pokemon center. "stop!" one of the four men said, "we will not harm you as long as you don't interfere" Me, cherry, Kevin and Natalie exchanged looks, we charged. We defeated them easily and continued, I had enough time to cure my pokemon. "I guess our battle will have to be postponed" said Kevin. "until we find out what is happening" I said. "look!" said Natalie as she pointed towards where the crater ended. It looked like an ancient stone door with weird hieroglyphics in which a hole had been blown through. "let's go" I said trying to be brave. As we walked in we saw a huge room, in the middle there was a green floating orb and around it 6 chronos member and a chronos captain. The orb looked like it had a pokemon inside...a sleeping pokemon. "intruders" said the captain, "my name's Adrian and I'm team chronos's top captain, so your the one who defeated kassandra?" He looked like I could never have beaten her. "get out before I hurt you children" he said and turned around, he started moving the green orb into some sort of hovering metal basket. "not gone? Team chronos escort them out!" he ordered. We began a fight with the 6 chronos members. "go pignite" "go marshtomp!" "go cherrim" "go Dewott" we all sent out our pokemon. We finally got through the 6 when Adrian was done packing the orb. "go electivire, magmortar!" he said, "fire punch, thunder punch" both attacks hit fainting all of our pokemon with one hit. "I am the strongest captain, at your current level you will NOT defeat me!" he was telling the truth. "why are you here!?" I yelled. He pointed at the basket, "that basket contains the first ever celebi, all of the other celebis came from this one, then it went to sleep, it is one of the 4 dwarf legendary pokemon that now sleep inside these orbs, team chronos wishes to unleash them to take over the world, simple" he said in a serious tone. "now step aside before I make you" We looked at each other and we knew we couldn't defeat him, not yet anyways. We moved aside. "thank you" he said as he left with his team and the metal basket. We came out of the crater and team chronos was long gone. "we should have stopped them" said Kevin. "we couldn't" said Natalie. "we aren't strong enough" added cherry. "Not YET" I said, "but we will be and when the time comes we WILL save those pokemon, we have too." that seemed to inspire them. "to the next gym!" we all said heading out our different ways, I remained with Natalie.
CH17 Ghostly forest
Natalie and i walked for a few hours on the trail when we saw a man and a poke cop, "I'm sorry kids you can't pass" said the cop, "there has been an earthquake in the mountains and the passage to the next city has been block, it will take a few days to clean up" "we have no time to wait, we need to get stronger, we'll just go around the mountain then" I said but the man interrupted me. "no you can't, the forest next to the mountain is haunted, full of tough pokemon, specially ghost" said the man in a creepy voice. "don't worry we'll be ok!" Natalie said. We kept on walking and as we went in the the trees and plants covered the sunlight more and more until it looked more like night than day. "frillish" said a pokemon from a nearby pond. It started coming towards us....slow and creepily. "don't worry Natalie I got this with joltik" I said seeing she was kinda scared with the sudden fog and all, but then more frillish and jellicent came out, all whispering and coming slowly towards us. "well I guess we'll go with plan B" I said as I instructed Natalie to run as fast as she could. We sprinted for several minutes before stopping. "we should have not come nick" said Natalie. "lets head back" I said, "but....where are we?" we had gotten lost. Natalie looked at her compass and pointed towards what direction walk. We kept on walking when we saw a giant rock....moving? It was a crustle. It charged at us. Me and Natalie defeated him, a flock of swoobats and two boldours. We were out of hyper potions but our pokemon sure leveled up. We were reaching what seemed the end of a forest when it got warmer an a candle appeared. "what is that?" I asked, it looked pretty. "it looks like it wants to lead us out!" said Natalie. The candle started moving deeper into the forest. We followed mesmerized by the flame. Then I started feeling weak, and weaker....and I remembered an old story my used to tell me..... "NATALIE!!!" I yelled and stopped, "that's a litwick! It feeds on peoples souls while it 'guides' them!" "that's why it's flame is higher!" said Natalie. Litwick turned around. Suddenly 3 more litwicks appeared guided by a lampent. Obviously......they attacked. "go Dewott!" "go frillish!" all the litwicks used shadow ball on frillish, almost fainting it. "frillish use recover!" it gained hp. The litwicks tried using shadow ball but couldn't thanks to frillish's cursed body. "now water pulse!" frillish hit all of them. "night shade!" instead frillish summoned a shadowy gust fainting them. "frillish used Ominous wind!" "Dewott finish with with surf!" said Natalie fainting the lam pent, "phew, that was hard!" all the litwicks and the lampent returned...except the first litwick we met. It was strong to surviv a super effective ominous wind and water pulse. "go poke ball" one two three, "I captured litwick!" we finally kept going according to the compass and got out of the forest.
We were finally near our next city, Delphia city, when we heard a loud familiar voice. "Natalie, Nick!" yelled Kevin as he sprinted towards us. I saw drake from the corner of my eye, heading into the city. "Kevin did you also go through the ghost forest?" "ghost forest?" he said, "no I simply went with drake on the ferry that went around the lake on the other side of the mountain, u know the warm safe ferry?" Both me and natalie face palmed. "There was a ferry!?" roared Natalie. But she seemed to have caught eye of drake because she simply stomped away towards Delphia city. "bye Natalie!!!" yelled Kevin. "so Kevin did you battle drake?" I asked. "yeah" he said with a glum face, "I lost too him, but I can't tell Natalie, she likes drake, and if she knew I'm also weaker than him..." "wait a second" I said as I tried connecting invisible dots, "do you like Natalie?!" Kevin blushed, "it's not l..like that" he stuttered." "ok Kevin how about a 2 vs 2 battle just to see whose stronger?" I offered, it had become kind of awkward. "s..sure" he said kind of embarrassed now. But then he regained his posture and his eyes foamed again. "go Lairon! That's right nick, Aron evolved!" "go Timburr!" timburr use Mach punch!" timburr turned into a blur and slammed into lairon. "lairon use Iron head!!" it hit timburr. "timburr use low kick and rock throw" "lairon use iron defense 2 times!" both attacks hit but lairon's defense had been heighten a lot. "lairon use dig!" "timburr Mach punch!" it hit but lairon then went underground. "now lairon!" lairon smacked into timburr from underground! Timburr then started to glow. "timburr evolved to gurdurr!" "gurdurr now use low kick", instead it hit with chip away, which is an attack who doesn't pay attentions to atk or def raises like iron def! "gurdurr use rock throw" instead it use rock slide, even stronger making lairon flinch. "lairon use iron head!" "gurdurr Mach punch!" it hit fainting lairon. "go Grotle!" "use razor leaf!" "gurdurr block with your steel pillar!" it blocked, "now use Mach punch!" it hit, "grotle bite and throw away his steel pillar!" grotle bit the steel pillar and threw it aside. "now grotle giga drain!" it hit. "gurdurr use chip away and then rock slide!" chip away hit, "grotle block rock slide with razor leaf and then use bite" razor leaf hit rock slide and grotle dashed towards gurdurr fainting him with bite. "go litwick!" Litwick apparently knew Will-o-wisp, hex, and flame burst. "litwick use flame burst!" it hit grotle, "grotle hit litwick with razor leaf and move in for bite!" "litwick will-o-wisp!" grotle was burned. Razor leaf hit. "grotle use bite" "litwick use hex!" hex hit with double power because grotle was burned. Bite hit, super effective. "finish with flame burst litwick!" flame burst hit home and fainted grotle. "oh yeah!!! I guess going through the creepy forest was worth it!" I said. "noooo! I..I lost" Said Kevin depressed. "come on Kevin let's challenge the gym leader and maybe next time, you'll come close to beating me" I said smiling. We both started walking towards Delphia city.
