Chapter #1

It was a warm summer day when a young boy named Shaun had just turned 10 years old. Today was a big day for him. It was the day that he would get his first Pokémon and his license to become a Pokémon Trainer. He had been preparing for his whole life to be a Pokémon Trainer, and today was the day his work would all pay off. He had not decided what Pokémon he would start out with. In the Sinnoh Region, there were 3 options you had as your starter Pokémon. They were Turtwig, the grass type Pokémon, Chimchar, the fire type Pokémon, and Piplup, the water type Pokémon. Shaun went down stair to the Kitchen where his mom had made his a great breakfast. “Good morning Shaun,” Shaun’s mom said. “How is my soon-to-be Pokemon Master?” “I am great, Mom,” Shaun replied. Shaun ate his breakfast and grabbed the back-pack his mom had packed for him. Shaun’s mom had been a Pokemon Champion, and Shaun planned to carry that on to his generation. After he was ready, Shaun headed out the door, ready to start his journey.
Shaun had to get to Professor Rowan’s Pokemon Lab. That was where he would get his first Pokemon. He had to get to Sandgem Town. He got on his bike and started off. On the way there, he observed the Pokemon that lived in the wild. He saw tons of them and saw how they communicated with each other. After a couple hours, he had finally got there. After asking a few people, he found his way to the Lab. He walked inside and saw Professor Rowan turn around to him. “Welcome,” Rowan said. “You must be Shaun, the new Pokemon Trainer from Twin Leaf. “ “That’s me,” Shaun replied. “I am ready to get my first Pokemon.” Rowan said, “Very well then, let’s go to where we hold your options as your starter Pokemon. “ They walked into another room and Shaun saw that sitting upon a table, Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup were eating Pokemon food. “Have you decided which one you would like to be your partner?” Shaun said he hadn’t decided yet. Just then, a massive explosion went off as a hole blew up in the wall. Three people stepped into the opening. They wore white and black suites with a ‘G’ symbol on the shirts. “We are Team Galactic,” One of them said. “We are here to steal your three Pokemon. “ All three of them sent out a Dustox. They ordered the Dustox to get the starter Pokemon. Chimchar, Piplup, and Turtwig started running around the room. Turtwig hid in a closet. Then, one of the men through out a PokeBall. Out came a Weezing. “Weezing, use Smoke Screen!” The man ordered. The room became filled with smoke. Rowan sent out a Staraptor. Staraptor used Whirl Wind. The smoke cleared and everyone looked around. The Pokemon were gone.
“Oh no!” Rowan exclaimed. “How could this happen?” Just then, Turtwig walked out of the closet. “Turtwig must be the only one left!” Shaun said. “Professor, please let me go out and look for Team Galactic.” “Are you sure? What if you get hurt?” Rowan Replied. “We are talking about Pokemon that could be my future partner. You just have to let me go.” Shaun pleaded. Rowan replied, “Very well then, you may go. But take Turtwig with you. He may come in handy. “So, Shaun and Turtwig headed out on there search for Team Galactic. They did not have to go very far when they saw a parked car that had the same ‘G’ symbol. They saw no one was in it. So they snuck on. “Turtwig, we have to find Piplup and Chimchar before they get back.” Shaun said. “Wig,” Turtwig replied. They looked out and did not find anything. Just then, they heard some noises behind a closet. They opened it and Piplup and Chimchar jumped out. “We found them!” Shaun exclaimed, “Now let’s get out of here!” They ran out and managed to get back to the lab without getting caught. “Good job,” Rowan said. “You were very brave to go and get back the Pokemon.” He then asked Shaun what Pokemon he wanted to start with. Shaun then replied “Turtwig.” Rowan gave Shaun 5 PokeBalls, a PokeDex, and Turtwig. Shaun said good-bye and walked out of the lab. He then started on his way to Jubilife City, where his first stop on his journey took place.

To be continued…

In the mean time…
“So, you did not get the Pokemon.” A man said. “No, they some how got away.” Three men replied. “Very well, you three, get out of my office, you are all fired.” The man replied. “Yes sir.” They said.

This story has a pretty good storyline but it sort of reminds me of the anime. Not much but a little. Another thing is that you need to make a new paragraph when a person speaks like:


"Good morning Shaun, his mother said. How is my soon-to-be Pokemon master?"

"I am great mom," Shaun replied.

Etc...


Other than that, it looks pretty decent. I'll be back to read the next chapter.

Chapter #2

After a very exciting first adventure into the Pokemon world, Shaun could not wait to see what would happen next. They were on there way to Jubilife City, where his next journey waited him.
“I can’t wait to see what will happen next,” Shaun said. “We should start training soon, huh Turtwig?”
“Turtwig!” Turtwig exclaimed.
“Professor Rowan said that if I want to challenge the Pokemon League, I have to earn all of the 8 badges around Sinnoh. He also said that the first one I should challenge is in a town right past Jubilife City, so that is where we are headed.” Shaun remarked.
Turtwig was riding in the basket on Shaun’s bike. They were happily enjoying there ride until that saw something that seemed like a huge of electricity coming towards them. They saw a Pokemon inside. It looked like there was a Pokemon inside it. Shaun took out his PokeDex and checked what Pokemon it was.
“Pikachu, the electric mouse Pokemon,” the PokeDex said. “Pikachu charge up electricity in the pockets on their cheeks.”
“Oh no!” Shaun exclaimed. “It’s coming right towards us!”
But before they could get out of the way, the Pikachu ran right into them. Both Turtwig and Shaun were paralyzed.
“Not again!” A boy’s voice said.
Shaun and Turtwig slowly got up. When they looked around, they saw a boy wearing jeans, a black and yellow jacket, and a white shirt under it. He also saw a girl and another boy.
“Sorry about that,” the boy said. I was training my Pikachu’s Volt Tackle. I guess it got out of hand.”
“It’s ok,” Shaun said.
Then the boy said, “I’m Ash Ketchum, and this is Brock, Dawn, and Pikachu. I see you have a Turtwig. I have one too. My goal is to become the best Pokemon Trainer ever.”
“Me too,” Shaun said. “I am just starting out though.”
“I am trying to become the world’s best Pokemon Coordinator,” Dawn said.
“And I am trying to become the world’s best Pokemon Breeder,” Brock said.
“Cool,” Shaun said. “Hey Ash, do you think you can help me train?”
“Sure,” Ash happily agreed.
So, Shaun, Ash, Brock, Dawn found a wide open field and Ash and Shaun decided to start out with a Pokemon Battle.
“The battle of Shaun vs. Ash will now begin,” Brock declared. “Each trainer will use 1 Pokemon.”
“Come on Turtwig, where going to win.” Shaun said.
Since Shaun only had Turtwig, he used Turtwig.
Ash yelled, “Come on out, Aipom!”
The battle was Turtwig vs. Aipom. No one had the advantage.
“Let the battle begin!” Brock yelled.
“Turtwig! Use Razor Leaf!”
“Aipom, dodge and use swift.”
Aipom got out of the way and used swift. Turtwig got some serious damage.
“Turtwig, Tackle attack!”
“Aipom, use Focus Punch!”
Just as Turtwig was about to ram into Aipom, Aipom hit it with its tail fist. Turtwig was knocked out.
“Turtwig is unable to battle, Ash and Aipom are the winners!” Brock announced.
“Thanks for the battle, Ash.” Shaun said. “Now I know the thrill of it.”
“The key is to trust in you Pokemon,” Ash said.
Shaun and Ash shook hands. Even though Shaun lost, he thought it was cool to be in a battle. Shaun knew he needed more training.
“So, is Turtwig your only Pokemon?” Ash asked.
“Yah, I have not seen many Pokemon lately.” Shaun answered.
“How about some lunch?” Brock asked.
“Sounds great!” Shaun replied.
They ate the awesome food Brock made. Eventually, they had to leave.
“Well, I guess this is goodbye…” Ash said sadly.
“Yah, but we will meet up somewhere soon.” Shaun said.
“You can count on that.”
So they said there good byes, and Ash and friends left.
Later-
“Ok Turtwig, lets get going. “ Shaun said. “Hey, where is the bike?”
They looked and looked and soon found it.
“Hey Turtwig, I found i… WHAAAAA!” Shaun yelled! “My bike is barbequed!”

Chapter #3

After meeting some long-lasting friends, Shaun and Turtwig were still on their way to Jubilife City.
“We should be there by tomorrow morning, Turtwig.” Shaun announced.
“Turt-twig!” Turtwig happily said.
“We should get some training in today,” Shaun said.
“Hey you!” Someone shouted, “I challenge you to a Pokemon Battle!”
“Sure, that would be some good training,” Shaun agreed.
So, they went to a wide open field, and they started the match.
“Come on out, Piplup!” The boy said.
“Let’s win this, Turtwig!” Shaun said.
The battle was Piplup vs. Turtwig. Shaun had the advantage in this battle since Turtwig was a grass type and Piplup was water.
“Turtwig use Razor Leaf!”
“Piplup! Dodge and use Bubble Beam!”
Piplup did not have enough time to dodge. So, it was hit by the Razor Leaf. Piplup was knocked out!
“Yah! We won! We won! We wo…. WHAT!” Shaun yelled.”
Piplup was glowing. Then a flash of light blinded them. When it faded, Piplup was not there. Instead, standing in its place was a Prinplup!
“Yes! Piplup evolved!” The boy happily exclaimed.
Shaun took out his PokeDex.
“Prinplup, the penguin Pokemon,” the PokeDex said. “Prinplup is the evolved form of Piplup.”
“This is bad,” Shaun said.
“Prinplup, use Metal Claw!”
“Um, Turtwig! Use Razor Leaf!”
Prinplup dodged the Razor Leaf and headed right for Turtwig. Right when it was about to hit Turtwig…
“Turtwig use Bite and stop the Metal Claw!”
Everything stopped as Turtwig completely stopped Prinplup right in its tracks.
“Now swing Prinplup around and let go!”
Turtwig did exactly that. He launched Prinplup right into a tree. Prinplup was knocked out.
“We won!” Shaun said happily.
“Nice battle,” The boy said. “My name is Roy. I am going to challenge the Pokemon league.”
“Me too,” Shaun said.
“So, are your 3 Pokemon ready to challenge the first gym?” Roy asked.
“3 Pokemon?! Turtwig is my only Pokemon,” Shaun replied.
“The first gym match is a 3 on 3 battle,” Roy explained.
“I’d better start catching some Pokemon,” Shaun said.
“Ok, how about I help you catch your first?” Roy asked.
“Sounded great,” Shaun said.
So, they went out to look for some Pokemon.
“Hey look!” Roy said. “There’s a Chimchar over there.”
“Ok, I will get this one,” Shaun said.
“First you need to weaken it, and then throw your PokeBall to catch it.” Roy said.
Shaun sent out Turtwig.
“Turtwig! Use tackle on that Chimchar before it notices us.”
Turtwig rammed into Chimchar like a bullet. Chimchar took tons of damage from the surprise attack. Then Shaun used a PokeBall on it. The PokeBall wiggled. Then it stopped.
“We got it!” Shaun said.
Shaun had captured his first Pokemon. Later on, he knew he should continue on his journey.
“Well, I think I should go if I want to get to Jubilife City by tomorrow,” Shaun said.
“Ok,” Roy replied. “I’ll see you at the Pokemon League!”
So, they parted. Now, Shaun was ready to train harder and faster.

Furizaa, quit the spam and double posting. Don't tread off-topic.

Articuno, Giratina, and Eevee later.
Why two legendaries and a rare Pokemon? It's going to take a lot of work to explain why two legendaries want to follow some trainer around.

Chapter #4

Shaun was almost there. Jubilife City was dead ahead. Shaun was very excited. Just then, Shaun heard a loud BOOM! He ran over to it. Just as some smoke just clearing, he saw a girl coughing. He ran over to her to see if she was ok.

“Are you ok?” Shaun asked.

“Yah thanks,” The girl said.

Shaun saw two Pokemon behind her. One was a Piplup and the other one was an Eevee.

“My name is Shaun,” Shaun said. “I am on a journey to become a Pokemon master.

“My name is Furizaa,” The girl said. “I am going to become the best Pokemon Coordinator ever. My first contest is at Jubilife City.”

Shaun replied, “That is where I am headed.”

“Cool,” Furizaa said.

“So, what were you doing?” Shaun asked.

“I was practicing my Eevee’s Shadow Ball attack for the contest,” Furizaa answered.

“Can I help you train for the battle round?” Shaun asked.

“Sure,” Furizaa said. “Let’s battle right here.”

So, they got ready for the battle. It was a 2-2 battle. Turtwig and Chimchar vs. Piplup and Eevee. The battle began.

“Turtwig, Razor Leaf on Piplup! Chimchar, Flame Wheel on Eevee!”

“Piplup, use Bubble Beam on Turtwig! Eevee, use Shadow Ball to stop Chimchar!

Bubble Beam and Razor Leaf collided and none of the attacks prevailed. Just as the Shadow Ball was about to hit Chimchar…

“Chimchar, keep up the Flame Wheel but use dig to get under Eevee!”

“Piplup! Water Gun into the hole!”

A huge rumbling went under the ground. Then, Chimchar popped up in Flame Wheel right under Eevee. Eevee flew up into the air. Just as Eevee was coming down, the water gun came out of the hole. Eevee was knocked out.

“Oh no!” Furizaa said. “Piplup, use Bubble Beam!”

“Turtwig, use Razor Leaf! Chimchar, use Ember!”

All three attacked collided and a huge explosion formed. Just as the smoke cleared, Turtwig and Chimchar stood there perfectly. Piplup was knocked out though…

“Yes! We won!” Shaun said.

“Nice battle,” Furizaa said.

Later, they knew it was time to go.

“I have an idea,” Shaun said. “Why don’t you come with us? Since we have to go all over Sinnoh, there are bound to be tons of contests.”

“Sure,” Furizaa said.

So, the two headed off for Jubilife City.

Charchic
February 23rd, 2008, 07:05 AM
You need to add way more description to this, it's hard to picture what is going on.

And Furizaa, STOP DOUBLE POSTING AND GOING OFF TOPIC! IT'S ANNOYING!

Back to topic, when your characters speak, make sure they have some sort of reaction after they say something. Here is an example.

“Yes! We won!” Shaun said.

“Nice battle,” Furizaa said.

Would be better if it was:

“Yes! We won!” Shaun said grinning as he looked at a smiling Furizaa, Furizaa then held out his hand.

“Nice battle,” Furizaa replied. Shaun shook his hand and Furizaa nodded in approvement.

Chapter #5

Jubilife City , filled with people, excitement and adventure. Shaun and Furizaa had just got to Jubilife City. Furizaa was jumped about her first Pokemon Contest. They were headed for the Contest Hall. That was where Furizaa would get her license to be a Pokemon Coordinator.

“I can’t wait to be in the contest!” Furizaa exclaimed with a huge smile on her face. “I will finally be able to show off my Pokemon!”

“Have you figured out what you will do for the Performance Round?” Shaun asked with a questionable gesture on his face.

“Yes I have,” Furizaa replied eagerly. “Since the contest is tomorrow, I will have an extra day to practice it. Piplup in the Performance Round and Eevee in the Battle Round.”

They finally made it to the Contest Hall. But as they walked in, Shaun saw a very surprising surprise…

“Ash, Brock, and Dawn!” Shaun exclaimed with a surprised grin on his face. “What are you doing here?”

“I am going to compete in the contest,” Dawn said.

“Hey Shaun, who are they?” Furizaa asked questionably.

“Oh yeah, I haven’t introduced you. “ Shaun said embarrassed. “This is Dawn, Brock, and Ash. And this is Furizaa.”

They all said hello to each other.

“Dawn is also a Pokemon Coordinator. This is going to be her first contest too.” Shaun added.

“Nice to meet you Dawn, I hope we both try our best to win.” Furizaa said with a friendly voice.

“You can count on that!” Dawn said confidently.

The next day…

“Welcome ladies and gentlemen to our Jubilife City Pokemon contest!” Lillian, the Contest Announcer, said excitedly. “Please enjoy our rounds of Performances and Battles! Our first Coordinator up is Dawn!”

Dawn ran out of a door and onto the contest stage.

“Come on out, Piplup!” Dawn exclaimed. “Use Bubble Beam!”

Bubbles flew into the air on the stage.

“Now use Peck and pop them all!”

All the bubbles popped and created a glittery rain.

“How amazing and beautiful” Lillian exclaimed with love-filled eyes! “What a beautiful combination of attacks. Let’s see what the judges think about this Performance…

The score given was 8.5/10

“That will be a hard score to beat. Next up is Florence.” Lillian announced.

Dawn came into the room with all the Coordinators waiting their turn.

“That was amazing!” Furizaa said to Dawn as she greeted her.

“Thanks. To tell the truth, I was pretty nervous out there.” Dawn replied.

“It didn’t look th-, I am up next. I gotta go. Wish me luck!” Furizaa said as she ran out of the room.

“I will!” Dawn yelled to her.

“And our final contestant, Furizaa!” Lillian announced.

“Come on out, Piplup!” Furizaa yelled out as she threw her PokeBall.

“Use Whirl Pool!”

Piplup charged up and let go a huge whirl pool.

“Now use Bubble Beam!”

The Bubble Beam mixed into the whirl pool. Now, the Whirl Pool was a two layers of Bubbles spinning and water spinning.

“Amazing! This combination is a magnificent display of two liquid elements formed together. Let’s see the score- 8/10!”

Furizaa waved to the audience as she ran back into the room.

“You were great,” Dawn said to her as she walked in.

“Thanks, I was also pretty nervous.” Furizaa said back to her.

“Ok, let’s see the final 8 contestants who qualified for the 2nd stage.” The TV Screen said.

“Here are the last 8 contestants,”

Ding!(Person) Ding!(Person) Ding!(Dawn)

“Yes! I made it!” Dawn yelled excitedly

Ding!(Person) Ding!(Person) Ding!(Person) Ding!(Person)

“Oh no!” Shaun exclaimed from the stands. “Furizaa might not make it!”

Shaun, Ash, Brock, Dawn and Furizaa all looked up at the TV Screen. They were all filled with worry and hope. All the other Coordinators felt the same way as the stadium got quiet with so many people anxious to see who would be the last person to be chosen as one of the last 8 Coordinators to pass into the battle round. Furizaa was probably the most scared. Since this was her first contest, she did not want to lose on the second round. Furizaa was starting to lose all hope in it. Piplup and Eevee were out of their PokeBalls, also watching the screen. They felt all of the nervousness that Furizaa felt right now. Everyone was getting very anxious.

“And the 8th Coordinator is…”

Chapter #6

Ding!(Furizaa)

“The last Pokemon Coordinator to pass to the Battle Round is Furizaa!” Lillian announced.

“Yes! She made it!” Shaun, Brock, and Ash exclaimed as they jumped out of there seats.

“Few, what a relief.” Furizaa said with a happy sigh.

“I knew you would make it, Furizaa,” Dawn said as she came up behind Furizaa. “Now, let’s battle each other is the Final Round.”

“You can count on it,” Furizaa said back to her with a thumbs up.

The next day…

“And the last of the 4 battles is Furizaa vs. Sanchos!” Lillian announced. “The winner of this battle will go into the top 4.”

“Ok, let’s win this! Go Eevee!” Furizaa said as she threw her PokeBall.

“Come on out, Gastly!” Sanchos said as he threw his PokeBall.

“Let the battle begin!” Lillian announced.

“Eevee! Use Shadow Ball!”

The Shadow Ball was a direct hit!

“Gastly! Hypnosis!”

“Eevee! Dodge and use Shadow Ball!”

Eevee dodged and hit Gastly with a Shadow Ball. Gastly was knocked out.

“The winner is Furizaa!” Lillian announced as the crowed went wild. “The last 2 battles and the Final Battle for the Ribbon will be held tomorrow.”

“Furizaa, Dawn, you two were great!” Ash, Shaun, and Brock said to them as they walked into the Pokemon Center.

“Well, I guess Dawn and I will be going into the final battle,” Furizaa said.

“I guess so,” Dawn said. “But just because we are friends, doesn’t mean that I will go easy on you.”

The next day…

“And the winner of the match is Dawn.” Lillian announced. “This means that Dawn and Furizaa will be the next battlers in the Final Round.”

“Ready Dawn?” Furizaa asked.

“Yeah, I can’t wait!” Dawn exclaimed eagerly with a happy gesture on her face.

“Ok, the battle will start… Now!” Lillian announced in the microphone.

“Come on out! Eevee!” Furizaa yelled out.

“Buneary! Spotlight!” Dawn said and threw her PokeBall.

“Eevee! Quick Attack!”

“Dodge and use Ice Beam!”

“Counter attack with Shadow Ball!”

The attacks seemed even, but Eevee’s Shadow Ball was stronger.

Dawn lost about ¼ of her points.

“Ok, while Buneary is dazed, use Quick Attack.”

Buneary was knocked into the air by the Quick Attack. It came down with a huge THUD!

“Buneary is un-able to battle! The winner of the contest is Furizaa!” Lillian announced.

Later…

“Congrats for winning, please accept this ribbon.”

“I got my first ribbon!” Furizaa exclaimed as the crowd cheered her on.

That evening…

“Well, I guess we’d better go,” Ash said to Shaun and Furizaa.

“Well see you guys soon,” Shaun said.

And the two groups of friends walked away, for a new rival-ship was born.
