Plot

Calling all pokémon trainers!

An exciting announcement was made yesterday by renowned explorer and pokémon trainer Henry Orava. Mr Orava is best known for his discovery of the Orava Islands just over a year ago. These Islands were originally found to support little to no wildlife, so one year ago pokémon were introduced to the area. These pokémon flourished, and the North Island is now widely inhabited. However, little has been heard from Orava or the Islands since then, and yesterday he revealed why. Mr Orava yesterday announced that almost a year ago he had received permission from the pokémon league to set up his own league on his Islands, and that he had spent the last year he had been secretly preparing the North Island for his new league. He has been building pokémon centers, pokémarts and recruiting Gym Leaders. In yesterday’s announcement he invited trainers to his League, which he declared to be the most open competition in years! Asked to elaborate, he explained that all trainers would only be allowed to come to the Islands with only one pokémon... no more and no less. Once they reached the Island they would be provided with a pokédex and pokéballs by Mr Orava himself! He explained that this would ensure that talented beginner trainers would be in with a chance in the Final League. The starting date for the League is the 1st March, no trainer will be permitted to enter the Island before or after this date. According to Mr Orava this ensures a fair competition. Any trainers interested should fill in the form below and send it to the address at the bottom of the form...


This is the main article in the latest edition of pokémon weekly. Your character has been reading with great interest. This league represents a chance for trainers to test their skills. Your character decides to sign up. Now for the interesting bits...

About the Orava Islands...
Ø The North Island has been inhabited by a wide variety of pokémon. There are some pokémon from all of the generations.
Ø However, not all of the 493 pokémon will be available, you have been warned.
Ø As normal, you will need to collect 8 badges from the Islands Gyms. However, there is a total of 12 Gyms, so there is some flexibility.
Ø The South Island will not be opened to the public until the pokémon league, which will take place entirely on the smaller South Island.
Ø There is no Team Rocket, Aqua, Magma or Galactic on this Island. *waits for gasps* The Island has no native population and only certified trainers are being allowed to enter.

RULES
-No Legendaries are allowed in this RP. Unfortunately none live in this area....
-No god modding allowed! That’s not fair and you may be kicked out of the roleplay
-Be active, if you don't post for 2 weeks I will kick you out of the RP. If this is a problem then don’t sign up. Inform me if you are going away, so I won’t kick you out of the RP.

Gameplay

Something I have noticed is that in most RP’s, including my current RP, is that all RPers follow a designated path and can catch from a small selection of pokémon on each route. Don’t get me wrong; this works just fine, but can have an unfortunate effect of many players having near identical teams. In this RP I wanted to try something different, which would hopefully add a little extra realism to the RP as well. Now in the real world, there is almost always more than one way to get to any destination, right? So once you reach the Island, RPers will have to choose a direction to set off in.

At some points a player will reach a junction, and will have to choose which way to go. Each Route will contain different pokémon, so which way a player chooses to go will dramatically alter the makeup of an RPers team. Hopefully it will also help to create more varied storylines as well.

Your starter....

Okay i thought I’d try something new here... you will not receive your pokémon from Professor Oak, Birch, Elm, Rowan or Tree! Unfortunately due to the high demand for pokémon by new trainers going to the Orava Islands, the Professors have all run out of starters. This means you will have to obtain your pokémon in another way. How you obtained your pokémon is up to you, maybe you have had it for a while or maybe you just got it? (All pokémon will start at level 5 regardless)

How you obtained the pokémon must be described in the ‘How Obtained’ section of your SU. It is important that the event is believable; and a bit of originality wouldn’t go amiss. You may choose any pokémon from the list below as your starter. I decided to do this because it will allow me a preview of your writing style and imagination, without reading a recycled RP sample.

Pokémon available

Okay this is completely open. As long as the pokémon is in its first stage of evolution its fair game. The stronger/rarer the pokémon, the better the sign up is needed ... simple. J

~ How to find and capture a Pokémon in this RP:
To find a Pokémon you must post something similar to this extract:

"Oddish bounced up and down in the field as her trainer stood beside her, after a while she looked over to Sarah who was looking down at the rocky path. Oddish noticed a bush nearby to her shake slightly and she excitedly bounced over to it. “Oddish,” she called loudly to get her trainers attention. Sarah lifted her head and out of the bush popped a...".

End the post here and I’ll fill in the blanks so that you can continue.

Then you will conduct the battle. When you toss the Pokéball, please end the post. Here’s an extract to show how to end a post.

"Sarah tossed the Pokéball, Oddish had done a great job at weakening the Pichu which was on its hind legs, spinning around as it was having difficulty staying upright. The Pokéball hit Pichu and sucked it inside, then began to tilt as Keira waited patiently for the result of the capture."

Heres where i decide if you've done a good enough battle to capture the Pokémon, or if its simply too strong. In the battle post, you can state the attacks of both pokémon and state whether they hit but please be realistic. For example, a thundershock could not beat a Golem in one hit.

Anyway I think that’s all, sorry about the length of this post... anyway Sign Ups are open. J

King!

You knew I was comin'!

Gender: Male

Age:14

His skin is in between a tanned and a pale color, and he has big feet and hands. His eyes are a blueish color, that are able to mesmerize people easily. He has dark,red lips that aren't very thick. His nose is small and perfectley centered on his face. Owen usually wears a yellow hoodie and dark, beat up, blue jeans. He has a plain, white shirt underneath his hoodie, and he wears black, worn-out, tennis shoes. Lastly, Owen wears a red backpack, that he uses to hold his Pokemon(Read on to see what it is!)

Personality: Owen is very comfortable when it comes to speaking up and saying his word(A. K. A. Speeches) He is out-going to most people, but with some, he can be a little shy.He isn't a very good leader, and on the downside, Owen can be a little *cough* very *cough* indescive. Owen likes to explore new places and try out new things, but he is afraid of ghost pokemon.

History: Owen was born in the Hoenn region and has lived there, in Lilycove, all his live. He is an only child, and while he was young he was very spoiled. Every day, he went to the contest hall and watched the contests take place. He stared in amazement, at the beautiful moves and wished that he could do it to.

One day, while playing hide n' seek with his friends,Owen got lost in an old cavern that he was hiding in. Suddenly, rocks fell over the entrance, and trapped Owen inside. He ran and pushed the rocks, and toppled over, unconcious. He awoke in a small room, filled with ghost Pokemon. Owen got scared out of his mind and fled. He kept running until he found his way, out of the cavern.

Now, Owen is ready to take on the challenge of his life. He is heading to tha Orava Islands, where his journey will begin. Can he win 8 badges and beat the league. And could there be a little darkness, somewhere in the Islands?

Preferred Starter: Togepi, Female


How it was Obtained: On Owen's tenth birthday, he recieved an egg that his parents had found in their yard. He kept the egg in his room, and waited. Nothing happened. He waited and waited, until one day, Professor Elm visited the town, to run an errand for Professor Oak. Owen, now 11, confronted Professor Elm and got him to check out the egg. Professor Elm said, that to hatch the egg, Owen would have to keep it warm. Owen did this, and on his 12 birthday, the egg hatched. It was a Togepi and it started rampaging around the house. One day, after a little bit of taming, Owen entered Togepi in a contest. Togepi lost, badly, but in the process, grew to level 5.

Character: Tyson Jade

Gender: Male

Age: 16

Appearance: Tyson has black hair that is a continual mess. He rarely ever combes it, already knowing it will just go out of place. He has hazel eyes that have a bit more blue than green in them. Normally, Tyson will wear blue jeans that are ripped from previous misuse and a black shirt. He carries his jacket in his backpack that he will be taking with him.

Personality: Having grown up in a volcanic area (he lived in the volcano), he is an extremely adventurist boy and will often ignore warnings, even if it means severe injury or death. He loves to play with the pokemon his family breeds in the volcano, and there are plenty of areas to play with the fire pokemon. Because he has grown up in a volcano, he is used to the extreme heat, allowing him to play with just as much vigor as the pokemon.

Tyson can have a temper rivaling an angry Charmeleon. When he is yelled at or in trouble for something he didn't do, or something worse happens that causes him to throw an angry fit, he will diappear for a few days, three the most, and then come back home dirty, full of scratches, and just plain hungry. Tyson doesn't like to express sadness or guilt, believing those to weak or girly emotions, and hides them away. But aside from all this, Tyson is a very happy person who literally bounces from one adventure to the next.

History: For generations, Tyson's family have lived in that volcanic home, caring for the fire pokemon that are born in it. The large town that inhabits the island at the bottom is quite rich in its land and grow some of Tyson's favorite fruit. Because of the generations breeding in the volcanic atmosphere, most of Tyson's family is immune to some of the heat, but as they are still human, putting even a finger in some lava is a death wish. Tyson knows because he got the beating of his life from his father for trying to jump in a pool of lava with some baby Magby.

Preferred Starter: Charmander

How Obtained: While exploring the deeper part of the volcano with some heat proof clothes, because not even his family could avoid the extreme heat that far in, he found some of the more wilder pokemon that his family simply avoided, but still fed if they ever wanted. He came across a beaten female Charmeleon. Although he didn't know it, she had fought against a Magmar for more territory but had lost, and was now perishing. Despite how much he tried to heal the hurt Charmeleon, she passed away, leaving her only egg behind. There was no father, or at least no pokemon that would take of it, so Tyson cared for the egg.

He took it everywhere, even hid it in his backpack as was forced to go to school. He cared for the egg as if it were his own, often getting teased by his three younger sisters, who often called him a "Mother hen", which infuritated him to no end. Finally, when a month had passed, the egg hatched, exactly at midnight as Tyson snuck out to sleep with the fire pokemon, right under the full moon. It was a beautful sight, seeing the egg burst into a white light. And, soon, with all the surrounding pokemon, the baby Charmander greeted the new world with a low, and rather weak, bark, and a swipe to Tyson's arm. Tyson knew right away that this closed eye babe would grow into a strong pokemon someday, but when morning came, he was suprised to see the strange coloring on his pokemon.

His Charmander was a shiny!

Character Name: Nova Hellray
Gender: Male, despite the name!
Age: 13
Appearance: Nova is quite tall for his age, standing at 5 foot 9 inches. It is his body that it is long, and his limbs are an average size; Nova doesn't like his long body. He is also quite skinny, but not underweight; the perfect mixture for a lanky person! He has dark hair that is slightly bushy and long, a pain to brush in the morning. He has some muscels that ripple through his body, but they aren't visible underneathe his clothes...

Nova has bronze glasses that sit on his small nose. He has piercing blue eyes that are some what warming to others, and a rather long face.

Occasionally, he will wear a black top and black jeans, but only when he prefers. If it is cold, he will wear a long brown coat, and if it is even colder, he will wear a stripy scarf similar to his top.

Personality: Nova always seems to be happy. He is always smiling and is a very strong optimist. He is extremly caring and also very fair; if someone is nice to him, he must be nice to them, but if they are nasty to him, he must be nasty back! He is always talking and is very intelligent, blurting out random, useless facts, for example... Oh, it doesn't matter!

If nobody is with Nova, he'll talk to his Pokemon, and if his Pokemon aren't there, he'll talk to himself! He always seems to find entertainment for himself and will never turn down a Pokemon battle but doesn't like confrontation! His faviroute color is bright green and purple. Unknown to some people, Nova can be abit of an Emo sometimes and has a Pop-Punk fashion sense...

History: Nova grew up in Sandgem Town, Sinnoh. He was very happy there and he lived happily with his Family. They always went on Holidays to exotic places and had loads of fun with Pokemon. Nova always wanted to be a Pokemon Trainer, his Sister was Fanita, the Hearthome City Gym Leader and his Father was a Scientist. He also had a Sister, Dawn, but rarely saw her as she was a Pokemon Trainer.

Preferred Starter: Misdreavus

How Obtained: Nova's Sister Fanita wanted to know how good Nova was at battlign to see if he could carry on the Faily tradition. He went up to Hearthome Gym with her for a battle. After a very long Journey, they finnaly arived and had a battle. nova didn't have any Pokemon so Fanita lended Nova a Misdreavus. He battled extremly well and wiped out Fanita. She decided that he was so good that he coudl keep the Misdreavus after she had heard that he was going to Orava Islands.

Dear Recipient
I am glad to hear that trainers from other regions are taking interest in Pokemon. I had a hard time in persuading the Sinnoh Pokemon League to letting you have this, so please be responsible. Due to the aforementioned, Turtwig may be a bit irritable
Good Luck,

@Goodbye, farewell & Amen - Sorry buddy, but Sign Ups are closed... maybe next time :(

Anyway on to the RP, lets get started:

A quick note before we start:
12 ‘towns’ have been set up on the Island, each with its own Gym. As the Island has no resident population, most towns will follow the same basic layout: A pokémon center, a pokémart, and a Gym. Some towns will have extra to this, if this is the case it will be specified in the Town write up.

Anyway... I think that’s it so let's get started... again

Dear Trainer,

I am pleased to inform you that your application to travel to the Orava Islands has been successful! You and your partner pokémon will need to catch the ferry from the port specified on the attached tickets in two days. You will be supplied with a pokédex and pokéballs upon reaching the Island.

Yours Sincerely

Henry Orava

For staff use only:
Barcode: III II III III I IIIII II

This letter came through the door two days ago... as you finish reading it for the thousandth time, you hear a call.

“Sign up desk 3 is now available...”

You look up and see you are at the front of the queue, and walk over to sign up desk 3. You hand over your letter over to the woman at the desk, who read the letter and scanned the barcode at the bottom. ‘So that’s what it’s for’ you think. She reads the details off the screen, then hands you a coloured card, a pokédex and 5 pokéballs.

“Okay, if you just head through the door on your right and a man will take your card and direct you to your starting point,” she explained, “He will also perform a security check to ensure you only have one pokémon with you.”

“Thanks,” you mutter, before heading towards the door.

As you walk through the door you see a girl being led away crying.

“It’s not fair, it’s not fair!” she screamed.

“Look Kid, it was clearly stated, you’re only allowed one pokémon. No more, no less!” said one of the men taking her away.

“I’ll need to look through your bags,” said a security guard, catching you off guard.

You simply nod, and once the security checks have been finalised you are told to go to another desk. You start to think this is a little long winded... but head on. At the desk, the man takes your card. After studying it, he gives you the final directions to your starting point. You follow them, and reach an area packed with trainers. They are all looking at a screen with a countdown on it. At the end of the countdown an important looking man appeared on the screen.

“Hello, my name is Henry Orava. Welcome to my Island. You trainers are currently split into four areas, to ease congestion on the towns dotted around the Island. In total there are twelve towns, each with its own Gym. You will need to beat 8 of the 12 Gym Leaders to win entry into the Orava Pokémon League. You will have 6 months to earn your badges and get back to the starting base to register for the League.”

This caused quite a stir in the room, with all the trainers chattering excitedly. Mr Orava seemed to have anticipated this, as he had paused. After a few seconds he continued...

“Now listen closely, this is important. Due to such a large having only twelve towns, we have set up rest points to help trainers. These rest points will essentially be a pokémon center with rooms for trainers to stay in. This will help all trainers have a safe journey. These rest points will prove essential to you. The Nurse Joy in every pokémon center will have a local map, and these are the only maps you will have reference to. So I would make sure you talked to the Nurse Joy at each center to get directions.”


Looking around, you notice many trainers are still talking. You highly doubt they have heard this advice... oh well, advantage to you...

“Anyway, I just want to wish you all the best of luck. Get ready trainers, I now declare the Orava Pokémon League open!”

As he finished the gates in front of you open, and you walk out... ready to begin your adventure.

OOC: for your first post head to your respected areas and do whatever it is pokemon trainers do! :)

Some Info on the Starting Areas:

Maritime Forest: Ahead you see an area of dense trees, with a set of small paths running through. There is a sign at the beginning of the Forest stating: “If you follow the path you will be lead to Maritime Town.”

Bebay Lakes: An area filled with a number of lakes. Beyond the lakes lies Route 3.

Crescent Meadow: A beautiful and peaceful meadow, which spans as far as the eye can see. There is a rest point located on the far side.

South Coastline: A sandy beach that stretches on for miles, before coming to a rest point. The Islands tropical climate makes this are seem perfect...

Name: Chris Eaton

Age: 16

Gender:Male

History:Originally born and raised in his hometown of Sootopolis, Chris's father was a respected Pokemon Referee and his mother was a Referee school teacher. To follow in their footsteps, Chris was sent daily by boat to Ever Grande City to study in a private school to be a Pokemon Referee Official. However, after witnessing Steven, a local hero, battle and win against the Elite Four, Chris developed a love for battling.

Like most of his friends who left a year before to become trainers, Chris wanted to depart to Littleroot Town to receive a Pokemon from Professor Birch. Chris's parents weren't fond of the idea of him giving up referee's school, and forbid him to travel to Littleroot.
One night, at the age of 14, Chris ran away from his house in Sootopolis and took a ship headed to a port just outside of Pallet Town.

During this time, Chris went by his middle name, Koji, as he traveled around the Kanto region, collecting the 8 badges of Kanto and catching many Pokemon along the way.After passing the qualifying round for the Kanto Pokemon League Tournament, Chris began using his real name throughout the tournament, and came in the Top 16, loosing to the soon would be champion. However, this move to use his real name came back to bite him, and as soon as the tournament was over, police officials attempted to capture Chris. But with the help of a few other trainers, Chris managed to escape.

After fleeing the Kanto region to Johto, Chris decided to enter the Johto league, leaving all of his Pokemon except for his Totodile, due to the fear that they would identify him due to his team. He then traveled through the Johto region, and was able to collect all eight badges of Johto. Later, Chris was able to enter the Johto League Championship with his new team. Chris overcame many tough battles and came in the Top 4, loosing to a trainer named Maud. After learning she was traveling to the Katsu region, Chris followed, again switching up his team.

Although Chris beat the first four gyms rather easily, chaos soon enveloped the region. Pokemon were soon outlawed, leaving Chris stranded in the Kastu region. But luck was on his side, and he ran into a renegade group called "the Uprising." After hearing the motives of the group and the details of the new law, Chris decided to put his quest on hold and help in "the Uprising's" cause.

However, things soon began going even more wrong within the region and the group split up, going their separate ways. During this time, Chris decided to resume his journey. He sent all of his Pokemon, except for his Totodile, to professor Elm. Although at first heading to the Hoenn region, Chris caught wind of the new area, and set his sights on becoming the new, and first, champion of the region.

Personality:Although Chris can be rash in some situations, when Chris calms down and thinks things through. he is a brilliant tactician, most likely form his years spent at Referee's school (see history) and the experience he has had in the other regions. But, If someone is able to get his too mad, he may loose his head.

Most of the time he switches between phases of extremely good luck and extremely bad luck, making him a firm believer in superstition. Sometimes, streaks of bad luck can make Chris seem like a bit of a klutz and may put him in some awkward situations, especially when it matters the most. Nevertheless, things seem, for the most part, to always work out.

Chris thinks that Pokeballs are more like "jail"(s) for Pokemon and tries to keep them out of their balls as much as possible.

Even though Chris has captured many Pokemon, he is/ becomes close to each one, knowing their strengths and weaknesses. However, his journey here was to become a better trainer, so all he brought to the region was Dile.

Appearance: Chris is approximately 5'11, an average size for his age. He is not skinny, but rather muscular instead. However, you cannot see it under his sweatshirt. He has medium-long, light brown hair that spikes up in the front, flat on the top, and with smaller spikes on the back. It always looks like he just got out of bed. His eyes are always a deep shade of blue.

Chris cannot be caught dead without a long sleeve shirt or his lucky black hooded sweatshirt with a red "Groudon Symbol" design on the front. He also owns a red backpack with a black pokeball design on the back.

Preferred Starter: Totodile (Dile); Male

Obtained: Dile was Chris' first Pokemon after he fled from the Hoenn region, going to the Kanto region to get a Pokemon from Professor Oak. Unfortunately, the ship he was on was late on it's docking, and Chris ended being late for the first round of Kanto Pokemon, After being told there were no Pokemon left, he didn't know what he could do, and all traces of hope soon disappeared. As he began walking out the door, Professor Oak received a call from Professor Elm, calling about a Totodile with a strange marking on it's muzzle. Elm continued, telling Professor Oak that the Pokemon was just too much for him and he wanted to send it over. Hearing this, Chris begged Professor Oak to let him take the Pokemon. Oak agreed, and Professor Elm, soon sent it through the PC system to Chris. The two have been together ever since.

Due to the time spent together, Chris allows Dile out of his ball to roam around free, but usually, Dile sits on Chris' backpack and looks over his shoulder. However, Dile has a tendency to toss things out of Chris' backpack to make himself comfortable.
Dile is probably the most innovative of all of Chris Pokemon, most of the time, trying unorthodox methods to get out of situations. Dile takes criticism to heart, striving to get better no matter what. Dile is somewhat stubborn as well, if he wants something, he'll try as hard as he can to get it.

Dile, for an unknown reason, has no desire to evolve into Crocanaw. When asked if it wants to, it shakes it's head violently sideways back and forth, as if as to scream "NO".

Dile has a green stripe running horizontally across his muzzle setting him apart from other Totodile.]

(It'll be like Ash's Pikachu from the series :))

Group Chosen: WEST!

Chapter 1: Startin' Off Stolen!
"Okay Togepi, are you ready?" , Owen asked as he headed towards the forest.

"Togeprrriiiiiiii", Togepi replied with equal excitment.

"We're gonna have a great time, here on the islands!"

"Toge-Tog- Pi"

"Yeah, well...." , Owen stopped as he noticed another young girl crying. "Whats wrong!?" , he asked, as he ran over.

"My Pokemon......its been KIDNAPPED!" , the young girl said through tears.

'It doesn't look like it" , Owen said, pointing to the Metapod in front of her.

" The person who stole i-it re-re-replaced it!"

"Wait a second, what Pokemon did you use to have?" , Owen asked, a theroy forming in his head.

"It was my Caterpie, Ketchup"

"You Pokemon didn't get stolen, it Evolved! This is Metapod, Caterpie's evolved form" , Owen explained, with a chuckle.

"So, this ugly thing is Ketchup?", the girl said, astonished.

"Yeah! Pokemon evolve to get stronger. Er..Ketchup, right? Well,anyway, Ketchup must have evolved to protect you in the island!"

"You would do that for me?" the girl asked, new tears forming. Owen left before things got too mushy, he had never liked scenes like that.

"Well Togepi, we should head to the forest. Maritime, I think."

"To-ge!"

"Well, let's go!", Owen said as they walked towards a sandy path, leading North-West. His journey had begun.

"Wait... Whatdaya mean I can't enter!" Chris yelled as he slammed his fists down onto the front desk. It was bad enough that he had to take a incredibly long boat trip and wait in line for the past hour, but to be told this brought Chris' patience to it's end

"I'm sorry, Sir," The Clerk replied, "But were only accepting trainers with new Pokemon."

"Comon... Can't you make an exception?"

"No. Sorry Sir."

"But what if-"

"I'm sorry, but rules are rules. You can only bring one in-experienced or new Pokemon into the region. Sorry... NEXT!" She yelled to the next person in line, leaving Chris with his Totodile, Dile, on his shoulder, standing in the middle of the room with a flabbergasted look.

Chris abruptly turned around and stormed out the building, yelling back, "You have no right to make me look like an idiot!" As he went to the door, it flew open from the other side, hitting him in the face. "Especially since I do a great job of it myself..."

Chris continued on, pushing past the trainer that opened the door. He stopped outside the registration building and sat down on a nearby bench, lowering his head between his hands.

<God... Not this again...> Chris thought to himself. Dile jumped down in front of him with a worried look on his face. <What am I going to do now?>

"Dile Totodile." Dile asked worryingly, cocking it's head to one side.

Chris slowly looked up at the worried Totodile. Behind him, other trainers were training their starter Pokemon, trying to get them to listen and teaching them basic moves.

<Wait!> Chris thought as a smile slowly developed on his face. "Dile, I got an idea."

----------

"Excuse me Sir, didn't I already tell you that you couldn't enter with an experienced Pokemon?" The clerk asked Chris as he approached the desk

"Umm... Yea. But see, I switched them out. This Totodile," He explained, shrugging to the Totodile on the ground next to him"...was just sent to me by Professor Elm. He's as green as grass"

"Really, Sir?" The clerk replied with a look of disbelief.

"Yea. Watch." Chris turned to Dile "Dile, use Water Gun!"

Instead of using Water Gun, the Totodile turned away from Chris with a very annoyed look on his face and grumbled to himself.

"Well, it doesn't seem to like or listen to you very much. A sign of a new Pokemon... Alright. Welcome to the Orava Islands."

A smile appeared on both Chris' and Dile's faces as she said these words, but as they remembered their act, the look quickly dissipated and was replaced by indifference.

The Clerk, luckily, didn't notice this and continued on. "Here's your map and your new Pokedex. Just a word of advice, though. If your Pokemon won't listen keep it in it's Pokeball.

"Right, Thanks!" Chris yelled back as he practically ran out the door.

Once outside, Chris and Dile turned to each other, both with the same 'I can't believe we pulled that off' look on their faces.

"Good Job, Dile!" Chris complimented as the Pokemon climbed back onto his shoulder. "But, we need to keep this act up if we want to keep going, so we're going to have to use some pretty basic moves, right now."

"Totodile" Dile agreed as he nodded his head.

"OK then. Where to?" Chris pulled out his map and began looking at the possible destinations. However, before he could decide, a strong gust of wind blew it out of his hands.

"I guess we're going this way." Chris sighed, as the two ran west after the map.

Tyson had held his breath as the woman at the counter scanned the strange ID on the letter he had been given that stated he was invited to a new and interesting league. He had read the letter dozens of times, each time his excitement growing. When the woman had welcomed him with a smile, she had given a few pokeballs, a pokedex, and other items.

Once that had been over with, the boat ride there had gone by in a flash. He was far too excited to do anything but simply watch the passing waves. When he had arrived, they had patted him down and checked all his luggage, just to make sure he didn't have more than one pokemon. He had been fine with it, especially since he had read the rules, but it had been a bit uncomfortable having to stand next to a bawling cryaby complain that it wasn't fair.

"Welcome," a woman said brightly, gesturing for him to move on with a smile.

Grinning back, Tyson took his first step on the island, and the first step of his journey.

It had been the perfect day. Red had received his beginning Pokemon and couldn't wait to get on the road. His beginning Pokemon was Bulbusaur, otherwise known as Blade. He couldn't wait to battle with Blade.

He was currently walking along a sandy coast, looking everywhere for a Pokemon to battle, and maybe capture. He couldn't wait to see what Pokemon there was along this place. Suddenly, something threw an acorn at him from a tree top and Red looked to see what it was. Then, something jumped out of the tree tops. It was a....

Tyson ducked underneath perhaps the hundreth branch after a mere half hour. He had entered his designated area, which just so happened to be the forest area. Sure, he loved forests and its calming presence, but there was something off about this island.

The trees in this forest were so incredible thick and close that there was barely any room on the ground to call a trail. So far all he could do was continually climb over fallen trunks or jump over visible roots that seemed curved and as high as the trees themselves.

Sighing as he ran his hand over another cobweb, Tyson rubbed the substance off on the tree he was standing on. Slumping against the tree thankfully, Tyson let out a relieved breath as he rested his feet. Despite being in the forest for only thirty minutes, which was still pathetic in his opinion, his legs simply weren't used to such endeavors through such a twisted maze. Back on the island, all he had to worry about was long jumps and endurance while running on flat land

A low hiss made him jump and spin around, almost startled enough to fall backwards thanks to a root catching his foot. "Dang it," he muttered as he scratched his heel. "Forget this," Tyson said angrily, jumping again as the sound attracted his attention once more. "Go, Charmander!" he finally barked.

With a burst of white light, the fire salamander appeared, but there was something off about this Charmander. Its body was of a gold color instead of orangish red. "Char!" Charmander greeted his trainer happily.

"Charmander, there's something..." he was interrupted by a loud screech, causing them both to jump. The both turned to a thick bush that pretty much covered up a whole tree. "Get in there and find out what it is!" Tyson ordered, excitement starting to boil in his stomach as he visualized a strong or rare pokemon popping out.

Charmander boldly stepped up to the plant. "Char!" Charmander barked, calling out its demand.

With trepidation, the two could only watch and wait as a figure walked out...

@Pikalover10 - That post is very close to the thread minimum, so please to more detailed posts in the future, anyway as to your findings...

Max looked up to the treetops and saw a small blue tadpole. with large eyes and pink lips. The most striking aspect of this pokemon however, was the black swirl on the pokemons chest. The pokemon was laughing happily looking down at Max. Max wasn't sure if it was this pokemon that had hit him with acorn, after all it didnt have any arms... that was until the blue tadpole flicked up another acorn with its foot and fired a bubble attack to send it flying at Max. Max ducked to avoid the acorn and the blue pokemon hopped down the tree and faced Max...

Tyson looked towards the bushes holding his breath. His Charmander looked ready to go and was staring at the same spot. All of a sudden a pokemon that looked a lot like a ladybird flew through the undergrowth. The pokemon was mostly red, with five black spots and two antennae. It landed in front of Tyson and looked at him curiously.

It landed in front of Tyson and looked at him curiously. Tyson brought out his pokedex.
http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Ledyba.gif Ledyba; it is so timid that it cannot move unless it is with a swarm.

Tyson glanced at the Ledyba, watching it flutter around Charmander, wondering if this one was just brave or too curious for its own good. "Our first battle," Tyson grinned. "Charmander, Scratch!" he ordered.

"Char!" Charmander screamed, using the massive trunks as momentum to jump and jump and jump until he finally flung himself at Ledyba, Scratching furiously on its stomach.

"Lee!" the Ledyba screamed. "Le," it gritted, rushing at Charmander before it even had a moment to compose itself.

"Growl!" Tyson barked hurriedly.

Opening his mouth, Charmander unleashed an angery Growl, startling Ledyba enough to falter, thus causing its Tackle attack to not do as much damage as it should have done. Nevertheless, Charmander was slammed against a tree.

Tyson grit his teeth. "Charmander, another Scratch!"

"Char," Charmander barked, jumping again at the bug type.

"Byaa!" Ledyba laughed, flying higher up and easily avoiding the branches. It waved mockingly at Charmander.

Charmander hissed angrily and was only too happy to follow high into the trees, claws glowing slightly. "After it!" Tyson ordered excitedly, trying to follow his pokemon's movent's as he jumped from branch to branch.

"Charr!" Charmander screamed, finally launching itself at a surprised Ledyba, getting it good right in the gut.

"Lee," Ledyba grunted, falling closer to the ground as its wings couldn't properly hold itself up while it was hurt. "Lee!" Ledyba screamed, charging for another Tackle attack.

"Dodge!" Tyson ordered.

"Charr," Charmander said lowly, waiting until the right moment.

"Lee!" Ledyba screamed, charging right at Charmander. It was almost there, not even a foot.

And as soon as it got close enough, Charmander smirked and fell backwards, its tail hanging on tight enough to the branch so that he was upside down and Ledyba sailed right past.

"Ley!" Ledyba sqweaked in surprise.

"Now!" Tyson ordered with excitement.

Nodding happily and letting go with his tail, Charmander did a min flip and, using the momentum of the tree branch he landed on, charged at the shocked Ledyba, slashing it viciously and hard enough to send it flying into a tree.

"Lee!" Ledyba screamed, falling to the ground, completely out for the count as it lay on the ground.

"Alright! We won our first battle!" Tyson roared with excitement, doing a little mini dance with Charmander.

"Ley..."

This caused Tyson and Charmander to look over before shifting guiltily. A few other Ledyba were hovering over their fallen friend, nudging it to get up. Finally, when nothing happened, they forced a few berries down its throat.

"Ley," Ledyba said a bit healthier this time. It gave one last glance at Tyson and flew back into the large bush with its friends.

The two were silent for a moment.

"I guess we just learned that maybe not everyone would like to battle or get captured," Tyson said softly, with just a little puzzlement. There wasn't a single pokemon on the island that didn't want to fight, but the pokemon here were apparently like that.

"Char," Charmander agreed, tilting his head.

With nothing else to do, they wandered through the forest.

OOC: So, do I keep wandering in the forest, and maybe find a new pokemon, or do I eventually come across a town? I'm a little confused with chapter 1.

"Char... man!" Charmander laughed, shooting a bit of fire out of its mouth in excitement. The young fire lizard had been doing that for sometime, and already Tyson had to put out several fires to ensure the whole forest didn't go up in flames.

"I know, I know," Tyson said with a sigh, watching the excited pokemon. "I know that you really want to battle, and that Ledyba had been a disappointment."

Charmander nodded, also a bit down that the bug type hadn't really given its all. Looking up at Tyson, Charmander grinned and shot a small flame, startling Tyson.

"Woah!" Tyson shouted in surprise, dodging to the side to miss the flame. What he ended up doing was tripping over a nasty looking root. "Ohmph!" Tyson grimbled, landing on his chin.

"Char! Char!" Charmander laughed, waving his tail.

"Think you're funny, do you?" Tyson asked with a challenging voice.

Charmander just waved him away, clearly saying he wasn't worth the effort. Turning away, Charmander blinked as a rustle came from some bushes. "Char?" Charmander questioned as he heard footsteps. Whatever it was that was coming from behind the tree was either big or heavy.

With trepidation, the two could only wait as the being finally came in view of them...

A large being came out of the bushes, and ran straight past Tyson and Charmander without even stopping. Tyson turned around to see the large blue figure climbing up a tree. Confused by the pokemon's behavior, tyson just watched as the creature began happily sucking at the sap from the tree. It looked so happy, Tyson didn't know if he wanted to disturb it or not. Charmander however did and shoty an ember at the pokemon, causing it to fall out of the tree. The pokemon got up, looking considerably less than happy at being knocked out of the tree, and turned to face Tyson and Charmander. Tyson got his first good look at the pokemon, and saw a bug type pokemon that looked very much like a large blue beetle. The beetle was nearly 5 foot tall and towered over Charmander, but this didn't seem to phas the fire type pokemon...

The beetle was nearly 5 foot tall and towered over Charmander, but this didn't seem to phase the fire type pokemon.

"Let's start off with an Ember!" Tyson commanded, excited to have found this monster bug.

"Cahr!" Charmander called, launching the Ember attack with just aws much vigor as Tyson's voice.

"Cors," Heracross grunted, bringing up an arm to shield itself to almost no affect. "Cross!" Heracross called, flying at Charmander quickly, its horn glowing.

"That's a Horn Attack! Dodge!" Tyson ordered quickly, words almost mixing together in his haste to get it all out.

Charmander nodded and began to jump from tree branch to tree branch. Heracross slowed down slightly, eyes carefully watching Charmander's movements. Smirking, Heracross charged. "Cross!" it cried out. Having lived in this dense forest its whole life, Heracross was more intuned with the thick trees and had no problem dodging and swerving. With a final cry, Heracross slammed its horn right into Charmander.

"Cha!" Charmander gasped, falling from the branches and hitting each one with a painful sounding thwack! "Char," Charmander grunted, panting as he managed to land on his feet.

"Charmander, are you ok?" Tyson asked worriedly. He waited until the fire type nodded. "Good, now use Ember!"

Growling angrily, Charmander put everything into this one, and immediately shot the vicious fire balls as Heracross. "Crooos!" Heracross screamed, shutting an eye as it attempted to turn slightly and cover its body with its arms. "Cors," Heracross panted, eyes widening as it took in the sight behind it.

The tree was catching fire!

"Quick, put it out!" Tyson shouted hurriedly.

Momentarily forgetting the fight, the two pokemon stamped out the fire. Charmander had no problem putting out the fire, but Heracross winced as its feet hit the fire, but it gave no grunt of pain.

Finally, when the fire was out and Charmander and Tyson breathed out a sigh of relief, Heracross slammed into Charmander with its Tackle attack, startling the two.

"Char!" Charmander demanded angrily, clutching its stomach as it slid back a bit, nearly falling over a root.

"Cross," Heracross growled lowly, gesturing for the lizard to come at it.

"Well, you heard him," Tyson said, knowing that the bug was a boy because of how its horn was shaped, "get it! Scratch!"

Teeth bared, Charmander rushed at Heracross, claws glowing slightly. Heracross charged as well, though on its feet instead of flying. It seemed like the two would go at each other with their strength alone.

"Char!"

"Hera!"

The two met, slamming their claws into one another and pushed, grunting as they held their ground. The two snarled and glared, attempting to gain the upper hand on each other.

"Her," Heracross smirked, slamming its horn down on Charmander's head, nearly causing him to fall to the ground. In the nick of time, he regained his footing, but still appeared hurt.

"Don't take that," Tyson growled. "Close up Ember!"

Smirking at Heracross's horrified expression, Charmander opened his mouth. It was already glowing with power, and by the time he opened his mouth, the fierce fire balls slammed right into Heracross's gut.

"Erh!" Heracross screamed, falling over in pain. Jumping up quickly, Heracross flew back a bit, though its flight was agitated and flaky.

"After it!" Tyson commanded, seeing victory. "Use another close up Ember!"

"Char!" Charmander screamed in excitement, running after the bug.

Snarling, Heracross charged as well, horn glowing. "Corss," Heracross said lowly, eyes narrowed. Charmander smirked and, at the last minute, jumped right over Heracross's flying form and landed right on its back. "Hera!" Heracross barked out in shock, eyes widening as it tried to turn around and see Charmander.

Tyson grinned. "Now!" he screamed.

"Maaan!" Charmander screamed, shooting the close range Ember right into Heracross's inner shell, causing the poor bug to scream bloody murder.

"Heeeeeraaaa!" Heracrosss screamed, crash landing into the ground, taking quite a few branches with it. "Cro... sss," he grunted weakly, body twitching and looking horribly burned.

"Charm," Charmander said proudly, shooting a tiny flame out as if it were proving a point.

"That should be enough," Tyson said, holding a hand out for Charmander to stop. Once he made sure the fire lizard backed off, he brought out a pokeball. "It looks like your mine," he murmered quietly. With a large grin, he threw the pokeball. "Go!"

Dile splashed through the waves as Chris walked beside him. He couldn't help but laugh as he watched the Pokemon jumped over the waves as they rolled in. The sun beat down hard on the island as Chris continued walking down the beach. He had long ago take off his shoes and now held them in his hands, letting the sand scorch the bottom of his feet with every step. Although the pair had been walking for quite some time now, there had been no sign of where the next checkpoint was or any other trainers. Chris thought that the entire island would be filled with trainers. he could only guess that most trainers had been rejected entrance.

Chris took a glance over at Dile as he continued walking down the beach, making sure he was OK. All of a sudden, Chris tripped, falling face first into the sand. Getting up and looking back, he saw a Pokemon climbing out of the sand.

"Dile," Chris yelled to the Pokemon playing in the waves, "Time for a Battle!"

"Hey, watch that tail!" Tyson snapped, startling the fire type. Guiltily, it looked a half burnt branch that was on the brink of becoming ignited. "Maybe its best you should go inside your pokeball," Tyson said reasonably.

"Cam," Charmander sniffed, looking scornfully at the pokeball.

Tyson sighed. "Don't be like that, Charmander. Beside's, we can see the city through the trees right now."

Charmander turned, and sure enough he could see the faint outlines of a building. Blowing some smoke out of his nose, Charmander gave an unsatisfied sniff as he was returned.

Tyson gave a small smile as he returned the shiny Charmander and put the pokeball on his belt. With an even larger, and much prouder smile, Tyson put Heracross's pokeball onto his belt. He was proud to have caught such a strong pokemon, especially since it was his first capture.

Turning toward the city he could barely see, Tyson moved forward, and soon enough, after much scrambling over thick branches and fallen trees, Tyson could finally breath in some open air in relief.

"Finally," he breathed, looking around curiously.

He had finally reached the first town.

Dile came running over, looking around for his opponent. Chris pointed at a red pincer coming out of the sand. A second pincer appeared, and the Pokemon hoisted itself out of the hole. The Pokemon looked very much like a crab, with a red top half and a light underbelly. The Pokemon spotted Chris and Dile, and scuttled sideways over to them.

Chris crouched down to Dile's level. "Alright Dile, here's a good time to practice our "act""

"Toto, Toto!" Dile chimed in agreement as Chris stood back up. The Krabby maniacally snapped it's claws open and closed as Dile jumped in front of it, eager for the battle.

"Alright Dile," Chris yelled "Let's use a... um... Scratch Attack!"

Dile looked at Chris, rather confused for a moment, he hadn't used that attack in a long time. He looked at Chris for clarification. Suddenly, the Krabby jumped at Dile, hitting him with a Strong Bubble attack, knocking Dile flat on his back. Bubbles foamed out of the Krabby's mouth as it happily scuttled back and forth.

"Toto..." Dile groaned, flat on his back looking up at the sky.

"Dile, Get Up!" Chris shouted. Dile quickly jumped back up, his face began to turn a slight tint of red as his anger rose. He was obviously annoyed that he had just gotten knocked over by a water attack.

Dile launched himself at the Krabby, hitting it with, this time, a successful Scratch attack. The Krabby skidded across the sand, coming to a stop about 5 feet from where it once stood. Foam spilled out of it's mouth once again and it began to get frustrated "Clicking" sounds.

"Good Job Totodile. Now use Leer!" Chris shouted, remembering more moves from when Dile was a starter. Dile eyes narrowed as it stared at the Krabby. The crab like Pokemon began to shake as the intimidation settled in, effectively lowering it's defenses.

As the Krabby stood in the middle of the beach, Chris shouted to Dile again. "Great, now follow up with Scratch again!"

Dile sprinted at the Krabby, holding his right claw up high in anticipation of the next strike. All of a sudden, the Krabby buried into the ground, then quickly came back up causing mud to cover and pile up around the battlefield. However, the Totodile continued to dash at the Krabby, obviously still irate at the first fall.

When Dile was about a foot away from the Krabby, it rapidly scuttled to the right, moving out of Dile's path. Dile tried to correct his path, but he was going to fast and over corrected, slipping on the mud and flying into the cold ocean water with a solid 'splash'. The Krabby chuckled as Dile emerged from the water, soaking wet. Dile, infuriated with the Krabby's plan. Chris' face also grew red, he and Dile were being bested by a Krabby!

"Dile, don't take that! Use Hydro-" Chris stopped in mid-sentence and looked around, taking a deep breath. He almost got lost in his anger and blurted out a move which a 'rookie-Pokemon' wasn't supposed to know. He needed to relax and figure out a plan.

The cool, ocean breeze blew against his face as Chris surveyed the battlefield. Mud covered the Krabby and the battlefield around him and the waves touched Dile as they rolled into the shore. Chris thought back to the incident that happened only moments before. Suddenly, an idea came into Chris head.

"Dile!" He shouted to the Totodile, snapping it out of his temper. "Use Scratch Attack, but use the mud to your advantage. Don't try to turn, just slide on it to gain speed!"

Dile nodded, once again running at the Krabby. However, this time, Dile slid onto the mud, using it to speed up. The Krabby once again attempted to dodge, but this time, it was the one that slipped on the mud. Dile smiled as he saw his chance and swung at the Krabby with a Scratch attack. The Krabby was vaulted into the air, landing on the sand with a crash.

"Awesome move, Dile!" Chris complimented to the Totodile.

"Totodile!" Dile replied, smiling at Chris.

"Now all we need is a Pokeball..." Chris said, reaching down onto his belt. However, he could only find Dile's ball on his belt. He had forgotten to put extra Pokeballs onto his belt!
Chris hastily took his backpack off of his back, searching through the bag for any Pokeballs. Finally he found one and took it out, ready to capture the Krabby.

"OK, G-" Chris once again stopped in mid-sentence. In the place where the Krabby was only moments before was a indent in the sand, and the Krabby was nowhere to be seen. Chris panicked as he looked around for the Pokemon, only to catch a glimpse of it disappearing into the ocean.

Chris sighed as he put the empty Pokeball onto his belt, all the while watching the place where the Krabby disappeared into the ocean. Dile trudged over to Chris, looking down in disappointment.

"It's alright Dile, that one was my fault." Chris said reassuringly as he lifted Dile onto his shoulder. "We'll get the next one."

"Totodile!" Dile yelled into the air, perking up a bit from his slum.

With that, the pair walked down the beach. After about an hour of walking, when the sun was beginning to set, a lighthouse began to fade into view. It sat on top of a cliff above the ocean and had some houses situated next to it. It spun, shining it's light against the sunset. "When there's a lighthouse, there's usually a port... So that must be the rest point!" Chris exclaimed excitingly as he raced to the lighthouse with Dile on his shoulder, eager for his first badge.

(OOC: Lulz. I've just realized that I have no Idea what/where the rest point/ gym is supposed to be.)

OOC: just a quick explanation about the Gym leaders. They were all given a level 5 pokemon of their tyoe to begin with by Orava. They then train/catch pokemon on the Island meaning that they get stronger as time goes on. This was done to allow the multiple starting points. Anyway...

@Wolfwhispers - Nice post, welcome to Maritime Town.

Maritime Town is located right in the center of Maritime Forest. As all towns on the Island it has its own pokemon center, pokemart and of course a pokemon gym. It is quite a small town, and being in the middle of a forest filled with Bug type pokemon... has a Gym that specialises in this type:

Gym Leader: Eric
Gym Badge: Oak badge
Battle: 2 on 2
Pokemon:
http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Caterpie.gif
Caterpie
Level 5
Attacks: Tackle, String Shot
http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Heracross.gif
Heracross
Level 5
Attacks: Tackle, Leer, Horn Attack

@Wolfsrain: I think I put it in my first post where each Route leads... oh well I'll do it now anyway.:)

Congratulations Totodile grew to Level 7 and learned Water Gun

You have reached Port Bergen, located on the South-West Coast of the North Island. Despite the name, the town has no working port, and the lighthouse is only for show. The town does have a pokemon center, a pokemart and (most importsntly) a Gym to challenge. This Gym Leader specialises in Normal type pokemon:

Gym Leader: Samantha
Gym Badge: Round Badge
Battle: 1 on 1
Pokemon:
http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Meowth.gif
Meowth
Level 6
Attacks: Scratch, Growl, Bite

OOC: If you both end your posts in the pokemon center after your Gym battle that would be great :)

King!

Sorry about the inactivity, I'll get a post up tonight! Gotta go!

Well, as promised.

The two trucked along, down the sandy path, until the trees and bushes rose around them, and the only light came from above. "Well Togepi, here starts our journey!", Owen said, excitedly.

"Togepi!", Togepi responded.

"Let's keep moving!" The two kept moving, in the Martime Forest, the darkness obviously not bothering them. " Togepi, something's wrong. It's quiet, a little too queit."

"To....Ge"

"Stay on your feet Togepi" They kept moving, wondering when it was going to end. Suddenly, they heard footsteps behind them. "Who's there?", Owen said quickly, turning around. He saw a teenage boy, about his own age. On the boy's shoulder, sat a small star pokemon. The man had long, dark hair and wore a long, trenck coat, a purple-ish color.

"Hello", the man said, in a shrp voice. " I'm Gary"(OOC: Just a name, noy real Gary)

OOC: I'll finish it in little bit, Mom wants computer.

Raide sighed as he took his first step Orava. "New place, new adventure. isn't that right shinx?" said Raide. "shinx!" said shinx joyfully, jumping up in the air. "But we better get going, so many badges, so little time!" said Raide.

So they started off, only running into two trainers. One of them Wanted a battle. "If you want a battle, I'll give you a battle. Go Shinx!" he said, tossing a pokeball up in the air. Shinx came out with a "Shinx!"

"Go Numel!" said the other trainer, throwing his pokeball up in the air.

"Shinx use Tackle!" Said Raide. "Shinx!" said Shinx as He lept up into the air and tackled Numel.

"Now use Tackle Numel!" said the other trainer.

"Dodge It" said Raide. Shinx dodged the attack. "Now use tackle again!" said Raide. Shinx tackled numel from the side right when numel was in the air, for a critical hit!
Numel flew sideways and fainted.

"Th next time we meet, you won't be so lucky!" said The Numel trainer as he ran off.

"Good job shinx. We totally destroyed that guy."

"shinx!' said Shinx in agreement.

As they trudged on, Raide and Shinx met many more trainer's. luckily, no body wanted to battle. "Man we been walking for hours!" Raide complained. Suddenly, he saw a pokemon center. "This must be a rest stop. well i guess its time to rest then!"
After resting for about an hour, They walked out of the pokemon center. Raide sighed happily. But the happiness didnt lasrt to long. The bushes started to shake, and Raide knew it was time for a pokemon battle. "Get ready shinx!" said Raide.

@Cooldude345 - Your posts are a little short, in future please extend them a bit... anyway...

Raide stared at the bush, awaiting what pokemon would emerge. All of a sudden, a small blue pokemon walked slowly out of the bush and made its way towards the narby lake. The pokemon had two lega, and interestingly no arms. It also had a tail, which it happily hit against the ground while taking a drink. Raide was unsure of what to do next... would he try a sneak attack, or try to gain the small pokemons attention...

The adventure begins.




Lucas was waiting nervously in the queue, Riolu was standing by his side, tugging at Lucas' jacket, obviously wanting to be lifted up.

" What, Riolu ". Lucas said angrily, he was starting to get annoyed with all the waiting.

" Ri Ri Olu ". Riolu said almost crying.

" Oh Riolu, I'm sorry it's not you I'm annoyed at, it's the sign up ladies their taking to long, and all you wanted was a lift up, well here you go ". Lucas lifted Riolu up onto his shoulder, Riolu looked happy.

" NEXT, PLEASE ". The grumpy old woman at the counter shouted, Lucas stared right at her. " YEAH THAT'S YOU, KID IN THE RED BERET ". Lucas jolted out of his trance and looked foward, he was next, he walked up to the woman.

" I beleive everything's in order, and this little guys newly hatched so, it's okay ". Lucas handed the woman his sign up form.

" Okay, looks good, everythings in order, look to your left, walk through that door, Mr.Orava himself is there ready to give you your Pokedex and Five Pokeballs, also the ferry to the island is there ".

" Gee thanks ". Lucas walked over to the door, with One last breath he pushed the door open, there was a old man maybe Fifty.

" Here kid ". Said the man, he handed Lucas his Pokedex and Five Pokeballs, Lucas didn't get a chance to talk back to him, as he was ushered onto a slim line ferry.

-----

Lucas and Riolu's ferry trip was quick, there were once again ushered but this time towards a beautiful Green meadow, Lucas looked at Riolu, they both had the samne thought.

" Riolu, hows about we take a little nap ".

" Ri Olu ". He said nodding obviously agreeing with what Lucas had just said. They led down, Lucas eyes were beggining to shut, when a Pokemon jumped out on them, Lucas grabbed his Pokedex, he was about to scan the Pokemon...

Lucas looked down, and saw what looked like a walking cherry. The pokemon had a round, deep-pink coloured body with two sort, stubby feet. It had beady eyes, and a purple-red stripe running down part of its face. It also had a short stem with two big, green leaves with a second, much smaller head growing out of it.

"What is that?" asked Lucas, scanning the pokemon...

Cherubi
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/c/cf/Spr_4p_420.png
The cherry Pokemon. The small ball holds the nutrients needed for evolution. Apparently, it is very sweet and tasty. Sunlight colors it red. When the small ball is drained of nutrients, it shrivels to herald evolution.

Lucas looked down at his Riolu, he knew even though Riolu was a newly born Pokemon, that he had enough power to defeat Cherubi.

" Riolu use Quick Attack ". Riolu suddenly jolted towards Cherubi, leaving a White slip stream in it's trail.

" Cher Ubi ". Said the Cherubi as Riolu sent it backwards.

" Great work Riolu, now use Aura Sphere ". Riolu pulled it's hands together then a blue sphere appeared.

" Ri Ri Oluuuuuu ". Riolu thrusted it's hands foward, the Blue sphere was heading straight towards Cherubi.

" Riolu, follow up the Aura, as soon as it hits Cherubi, use Quick Attack ". The Blue sphere flew right towards Cherubi, who had no way of dodging it, it connected sending Cherubi onto the back foot. Then Once agin Riolu left a White slipstream and connected with Cherubi.

" Ri Ri ". Riolu looked towards Lucas, asking what to do next.

" Riolu, use Quick Attack ". The same White slipstream emnated from behind Riolu, Riolu hit Cherubi, full on, leaving her suspectible to attacks. " Okay Riolu use Aura Sphere ". Riolu let out his Blue ball, the ball chased down Cherubi, and hit her hard, sending her to the floor.

" Cher Cher Ubi ". Said the weak, nearly defeated Pokemon. She jumped towards Riolu in an attempt to use Tackle.

" Riolu you can do it, use Endure ". The Tackle connected with Riolu, but because of the Endure attack, Cherubi bounced off leaving herself in dire trouble.

" Ri Olu ". Riolu nodded towards Lucas, he knew what to do.

" Riolu use Quick Attack ". Riolu was about to connected with Cherubi.

" Cher Ubi ". Cherubi jumped up, launching another Tackle attack, but this time Riolu came out worse, Cherubi landed safely, but Riolu hit the ground, after a matter of seconds he pushed himself onto his feet Once again.

" Alright Riolu, use Aura Sphere, then Quick Attack, Once again ". Riolu's Blue ball of aura flew towards Cherubi, forcing her to hit the ground, then Riolu used Quick Attack and enflicted yet more pain on the Cherubi.

" Ri Ri Olu ". Riolu looked towards Lucas, obviously he knew what to do.

" That's right Riolu, it's time to finish this use Aura Sphere ". The same Blue ball emnated in Riolu's hands, then as Riolu thrusted the ball flew towards Cherubi.

" Cher Uuuuuu ". Cherubi, screamed in pain, then Two Black crosses appeared in her eyes, she was defeated, Riolu ran back to Lucas, the Two exchanged high Fives then walked off, the meadow was getting deeper. As they were walking, Riolu sensed with Aura that something was about to jump out of the bush, he grabbed hold of Lucas and stopped him from moving any further...

"Oddish," it said happily, jumping up and down excitedly.

" What the heck is that ". Lucas looked towards Riolu.

" Ri Ri Lu ". Riolu said as if to say I don't know.

" Well, let's see if dex knows ". Lucas pulled out his Pokedex and scanned it over the bush.

Oddish
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/d/dc/Spr_3e_043.gif (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Spr_3e_043.gif)
The weed Pokemon. The Pre-Evolved for of Gloom. It often plants its root feet in the ground during the day and sows seeds as it walks about at night.

" Riolu, no way I'm catching that, so let's defeat it, start by using Quick Attack ". Riolu left a White slipstream as it jolted towards Oddish.

" Odd Odd Ish ". Oddish used Sweet Scent to cover itself up with an Orangey powder substance, Riolu stopped in it's trail. The dust was covering up Oddish, Riolu didn't know where he was.

" Riolu, theres only One way out of this, use Aura Sphere straight up ". Riolu used Aura Sphere and sent the ball straight up into the air, because he ball was made of Aura, it sought out Oddish in the blink of a second.

" Odd Ish ". Riolu and Lucas both turned around, on the floor lay an Oddish, it had been hit by the Aura Sphere.

" Great work Riolu, it's time to use Quick Attack ". Riolu ran towards Oddish, leaving a slipstream.

" Odd Ish ". Oddish let Riolu get close then she stuck down her head and a Green light shone out of it, the light turned into a beam which focused on the oncoming Riolu, Riolu started to squirm in hurt, when the light stopped glowing, it left Oddish looking rejuvenated but left Riolu looking hurt, Oddish had used Absorb.

" Riolu, it's perfect time for your new move, use Counter ". Riolu turned a Dark Brown colour, he then ran towards Oddish and started to punch her, furiously. When Riolu returned to his normal colours it left Oddish looking even more beat up then before.

" Great work, Riolu, now use Aura Sphere ". Riolu pulled his hands together and made a Blue ball of Aura, he then thrusted his hands sending the ball rocketing towards Oddish.

" Odd Ish ". She said in a attempt to use Sweet Scent, to try to avoid the move, but the Aura Sphere connected with Oddish almost leaving her defeated, but she still had some fight left in her.

" Alright Riolu, use Quick Attack ". Riolu ran towards Oddish, leaving a slipstream in his trail.

" Odd Ishhh ". Oddish started to use Absorb again, she let out that same Green light from the top of her head and she started to drain some of Riolu's power. At the end of the move, Oddish looked healthier, but Riolu looked much weaker.

" Riolu use Counter ". Riolu turned the same Dark Brown colour and ran towards Oddish, and started to punch her, at the end of the combat, Oddish looked like she was ready to faint, whilst Riolu didn't look much better.

" Ri Ri Olu ". Riolu looked back at Lucas, knowing they'd have to end this quickly.

" Okay this One's over now, Riolu use Quick Attack ".

" Ri Ri Olu ". Riolu ran towards Oddish , leaving the same slipstream.

" Odd Odd Ish ". She looked worried, she braced herself for Riolu to hit, the Quick Attack connected and left Oddish lying on the floor, just a move or Two from fainting.

" Alright Riolu, it's time to finish this use, Aura Sphere ". The same Blue ball came from Riolu's palms and flew towards Oddish.

" Odd Odd Ishhhh ". As soon as the Aura Sphere connected, Oddish fainted, leaving Riolu victorious.

" Yesss, great job Riolu ". Lucas and Riolu exchanged high Five's for the Second time today. Lucas and Riolu then walked deeper into the meadow, the bushes started to shake for the Third time today...

Lucas turned round to see what had disturbed the leaves behind him and saw what looked like a cotton bud floating by his head. On closer inspection he saw that the creature had a small, round red body with long green sprouts coming out of its head. The pokemon seemed to hav been blown towards Lucas and Riolu by nothing more than the wind...

Tyson grinned in excitement as he got to the next town, which just so happened to be in the middle of the forest. The tall trees completely cut off and surrounded the town, which was Maritime Town according to a sign. Looking around, Tyson noticed a gym, which he almost immediately started walking over to, but stopped as he realized he really needed to heal his pokemon.

Head swiveling around, Tyson let out a small smile of relief as he found the large building. Walking towards it, he ignored the looks the towns people were giving him. They seemed excited and happy, murmering amongst themselves that one of the trainer's from the league had finally made it to their town. Head down with embarrassment, Tyson quickly entered the pokemon center, breathing out a relief as the nurse greeted him.

"Hello, and welcome to the pokemon center! May I heal your pokemon?"

"Yes," Tyson breathed. "I'll need them ready for the battle at the gym. I'm a bit eager to get there."

"Of course," Nurse Joy laughed. "This will just take a second..." She waited until she heard the ding, signifying the machine had properly healed his pokemon. "Here you are, and have a nice day."

"Thanks, and you too!" Tyson called out as he ran out the door.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

"So you're the trainer that wishes to challenge me?" Tyson nodded at the gym leader. He was an older man, probably in his thirties, and he looked a bit too serious. "Very well, it shall be two on two. Do you agree?"

"I do," Tyson said.

"Very well. Come out, Caterpie!"

Tyson really fought hard to keep his maniacal grin away, but it was not meant to be. "This will be easy. Go, Charmander!"

With a burst of white light, the golden skinned fire lizard appeared. "Car!" it barked out.

"Start out with Ember!" Tyson ordered.

"Charr!" Charmander growled, launching the small fire balls at the bug type.

The gym leader smirked. "Now jump," he ordered.

"Caaa!" Caterpie screeched, somehow jumping at least ten feet in the air.

"What in the world...? Jst Ember it!" Tyson shouted.

"String Shot," the gym leader ordered.

Caterpie launched the sticky substance, hitting the fire balls as it did so. "Caat," it cooed, narrowly avoiding the attack.

"Keep firing those Embers!" Tyson ordered. "Quick, before it lands!"

"Keep firing String Shot, and then jump away when you get the chance!" the gym leader barked.

"Caa!" Caterpie sqwealed, continually firing the sticky substance.

"Mander," Charmander growled in anger, just finally runnging straight at the String Shot, waving his tail repeastedly to burn away the substance before it reached him. "Char," Charmander smirked, mouth lighting up.

The gym leader's eyes widened. "Caterpie, hit it with Tackle!"

"Piie!" Caterpie screamed, using its fallen momentum to turn at Charmander, eager to bash it in the head.

"Now!" Tyson roared. "Hit it at point blank!"

"Chaaar!" Charmander screamed, hitting the poor bug type at close range with its burning hot Ember.

"Caaaat!" Caterpie screamed in pain, rolling around as the super effective attack took over and leaving it in the unconcious world.

The gym leader sighed and recalled his pokemon. "That was fast," he muttered, too low for Tyson to hear. "Let's try this one. Go, Heracross!"

With a burst of white light, the monstrous bug appeared, swiping its horn about in the air and calling out, "Hera!"

Tyson grinned in amusement. He knew what he could do with this. "Charmander, return," he said, recalling the fire lizard. "Go, Heracross!"

With a burst of white light, his own Heracross appeared. It swiped its horn about in the air, calling out, "Hera!" It turned to its opponent, and almost immediately, their eyes narrowed and the atmosphere became tense.

Even the gym leader tensed. "Two male Heracorss's battling it out," he said with the shake of his head. "Heracross, start out with Horn Attack!"

"Heracross, you use Horn Attack as well!" Tyson barked.

Roaring, the two pokemon charged at each other, hitting each other by the horn and attempting to push the other away in a battle of dominance. "Cors," they both growled.

"Try punching it away," Tyson said helpfully.

Heracross gave just the slightest grin of amusement before curling his clawed hand into a fist and bashing the other one right in the face. "Cross!" he cried out happily, standing over the fallen pokemon.

"Horn Attack!" the gym leader bellowed.

"Cors!" the gym leader's Heracross called, jumping up and jamming Tyson's Heracross in the side.

"Hera!" Heracross cried out in pain.

"Don't give in! You use Horn Attack!"

"Corrr!" Heracross roared, horn glowing with power as it slashed angrily into the gym leader's Heracross's side.

"Hera!" it cried out, staggering away and leaving it breathless. When it removed its claws, it showed quite a few scratch marks on it.

"Tackle," the gym leader ordered.

"Here!" Heracross snarled, charging at Tyson's Heracross.

"Dodge and bash it in the head with Horn Attack!"

"Heeera!" Heracross snarled, waiting as the gym leader's charged. Smirking, it waited until the last minute to jump. "Corss!" he bellowed, doing a flip so that it dived straight down, horn pointed directly at the gym leader's Heracross.

"Heraaa!" the Heracross screamed out, getting smashed into the round from the force.

"Hera," Tyson's said happily, bodding his horn about.

The gym leader grit his teeth in annoyance, looking over his fallen pokemon.

"Finish it with another Horn Attack!" Tyson demanded.

"Heraa!" Heracross cried out eagerly, charging at the fallen pokemon. "Corrr!" it called, jabbing at its opponent, revelling in the scratch marks it made.

"That's enough," the gym leader said, recalling his pokemon. He walked over to a happy Tyson.

"That was great, Heracross," Tyson said happily. "You were amazing!"

"Hera!" Heracross said proudly, nodding.

"Congragulations, you have won the gym badge," the gym leader stated. He looked at Tyson seriously. "But be warned, the next gym leader and the next after that are all much stronger than me. Go, and heal your pokemon. The next town is north from here. Just keep going straight, and you should reach it, but beware of the the wild pokemon."

"Thank you," Tyson replied, shaking the mans hand. This was just the beginning, he realized. It was truly the beginning, but it was still amazing, knowing he had such an awsome journey ahead of him.

@Wolfwhispers - Nice post.

Congratulations Charmander grew to Level 8
Congratulations Heracross grew to Level 7, and learned Fury Attack
Congratulations Tyson won an Oak Badge

Just as a general notice for everyone from now on, if you want directions head to a pokemon center at a restpoint/town and ask the Nurse Joy for them and end your post, I will then give them to you.

Anyway Wolfwhispers, good guess. :) Continue North through the rest of the Forest and you will reach Route One. Route One is a short path inhabited by wild pokemon, and leads to Moray Town (and the next Gym)

Lucas turned round to see what had disturbed the leaves behind him and saw what looked like a cotton bud floating by his head. On closer inspection he saw that the creature had a small, round red body with long green sprouts coming out of its head. The pokemon seemed to have been blown towards Lucas and Riolu by nothing more than the wind. Lucas grabbed his Pokedex and scanned it over the Pink floating Pokemon.

Hoppip
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/d/dd/Spr_3e_187.gif (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Spr_3e_187.gif)
The cottonweed Pokemon. It's the Pre-Evolved form of Skiploom. It drifts on winds. It is said that when Hoppip gather in fields and mountains, spring is on the way. Hoppip gather in caves of mountains when bad weather is unavoidable.

" Riolu, we're almost at Wildflower Town, so you think you can hang in there a while, you reckon you've got enough power left to take out this piece of candy floss "?

" Ri Ri ". Riolu nodded at Lucas, he sure was ready, Riolu couldn't wait to eat this One for his dinner.

" Hop Pip ". Hoppip looked confused by this. " Was this Riolu going to eat him, if so he's not getting me without a battle ". Hoppip floated to the floor then used Splash to bounce towards Riolu.

" Wait Riolu, when he gets to close use Aura Sphere ". Riolu pulled back his fists and made his Blue ball of Aura, as Hoppip moved closer to Riolu, Riolu thrusted his hands foward and the ball connected with Hoppip sending him flying towards a nearby tree, but because Hoppip is so light he didn't make it that far and just floated back towards ground, but damage was taken by Hoppip. Hoppip then started to turn a bright Green colour, Lucas and Riolu just stared in awe of the beauty of the move, but Once the light stoped Lucas noticed that the Hoppip had been fully healed, Hoppip had used Synthesis.

" Oh dammit, it's healed itself, Riolu it looks like we'll have to defeat this One quickly before it does that again, so use Quick Attack ". Riolu jolted towards the candy floss, Once again leaving the bright White slipstream in his trail. Hoppip began to foat upwards into the air.

" Ri Ri ". Riolu looked back towards Lucas wondering what to do.

" Riolu fire an Aura Sphere to bring him down ". The ball of Aura sought out Hoppip and sent him crashing towards the ground.

" Hop Pip ". He winced in pain.

" Okay Riolu use Quick Attack ". Riolu left a slipstream then connected with Hoppip who led, dazed on the floor. Suddenly Hoppip jumped up and used Splash to bounce off the floor and into Riolu's face.

" Ri Ri ". He said in a bit of a confused state of mind.

" Okay, Riolu you know what to do, use Counter ". Riolu turned that odd shade of Brown and again, he ran towards Hoppip and started to punch and kick him non stop, then when the Brown colour left him he stood over Hoppip waiting for his next command.

" Hop Pip ". Hoppip stared at Riolu, he looked worried.

" Riolu use Quick Attack ". Riolu ran at Hoppip and left a slipstream just like normal, then when he connected with Hoppip, she lay there almost fainted.

" Ri Olu ". He looked at Lucas, wondering what to do next.

" Okay, now your close use Aura Sphere ". The same Blue ball of Aura flew towards Hoppip, it connected and left Hoppip out for the trash.

" Ri Ri ". He looked towards Lucas, asking for permission to finish this off.

" Afirmative Riolu, finish this off use Aura Sphere ". Riolu let a Blue ball of Aura fromhis fists and the ball connected with Hoppip causing him to faint. The pair walked off into the distance, after a long time of walking they were in Wildflower Town, Lucas knew there was Gym here all he had to do was heal up Riolu. They walked into the Poke Center and Lucas asked Nurse Joy.

" Hi can I just heal my Riolu please, and also where should I go after I'm done with this city "....

Tyson eagerly walked through the thick forest. He was bubbling with excitement, even though he had to crawl, jump and manuever in impossible ways through the thick forest. The reason why was because he had just won his first badge!

And he could already feel the cool metal of the next gym he would beat, but as Tyson continued to walk, he thought about the gym leaders. They would most likely have more pokemon than him, and his pokemon weren't exactly high level. He would need to train, and the only way to do that was find another trainer or battle more wild pokemon.

"Must... train," Tyson groaned in irritation as he whacked his head against a branch.

As if some unknown deity had heard his request, the bushes began to move, and Tyson tensed with excitement and curiosity...

Raide scanned the pokemon with his pokedex.

Wooper, the mud fish pokemon.
This pokemon buries itself in mud to hide from predators and to sleep.

"Hmmmm..." said Raide. I hope it doesn't know any ground attacks yet. Shinx will be vulnerable to it." Thought Raide. "Go shinx!" siad Raide, throwing a pokeball up in the air. Shinx popped out of the pokeball.

"shinx!" It cried. The wooper was still drinking water, and wasn't paying attention to the trainer and his pokemon.

"Okay shinx, use tackle!" Shinx jumped up in te air and charged wooper. woooper looked up just in time to get tackled. While wooper was flying through the air, Raide yelled "use tackle to pound him into the ground!" Shinx did just that. Wooper was down, but quickly got back up, and used water gun. Shinx dodged it, and started to go in on wooper for another tackle. "No don't do that!" yelled Raide, But it was too late. Wooper let out a powerful water gun, and Shinx took the blow. "Shinx!" It cried in pain as it hit the ground.

"Hang in there Shinx and Use tackle while zigzagging!" yelled Raide. Shinx zigzagged and hit wooper.. Hard! Wooper flew into a tree and cried in pain. "Shinx use tackle!"

Wooper jumped up to use an attack, Shinx tackled him at that moment.

"Shinx!" said shinx, tackling Wooper. Wooper went flipping into a tree.

Shinx tried to tackle Wooper into the tree, but Wooper jumped out of the way.

Shinx hit the tree at full impact, head first. "Shinx!" shinx cried out in pain, but quickly got up of the ground.

"shinx, use Tackle to tackle him into the air!" yelled Raide.

"shinx!" said shinx as he obeyed.
Wooper flew into the air, flying into a tree and hitting several branches on the way down.

"Wooper" said wooper weakly, strugling to get up.

"Go, Pokeball" yelled Raide as he threw a pokeball. The pokeball sucked up wooper, and Raide waited impatiently as the pokeball mobed from side to side...

The pokeball hit the struggling Wooper and sucked the mud fish inside. Raide watched as the ball shook from side to side for a few seconds before a 'ping' told Raide he had been succesful in his capture. Raide smiled and breathed a sigh of relief. He had succesfully captured his first pokemon...

Congratulations Raide caught a Level 3 Wooper

" I would suggest heading North along Route 4. Route 4 is a very rough Route, and is home to many ground type pokemon. It also leads to Chait Town. Alternatively you could head East along the coast towards the Power Station ".

" Cool thanks for that, I think I'm going to go East, as I'd like to capture an Electric type ".

" Good luck with that, and heres your fully healed Riolu ". She handed Lucas Riolu's Pokeball.

" Thanks, and see you another time maybe ". On that note Lucas jolted out of the PokeCenter and headed towards the gym in the middle of the city. Lucas took out Riolu's Pokeball and released him. " Right, Riolu, this is our First gym battle together, are you ready "?

" Ri Ri Olu ". Riolu flexed his muscles to show Lucas that he was ready for the challenge.

" Great news, so let's get this other and down with shall we ". Lucas llifted up Riolu onto his shoulder he confidently strolled in to the gym. " HELLO ". Lucas screamed as he entered.

" Calm down wee laddie, your just a wee trainer here for a battle aren't ya ". The middle aged woman's strong Scottish accent made Lucas' ears hurt.

" Yeah, I'm Lucas from Twinleaf Town in the Sinnoh region, and me and my Riolu are here to take your badge ". Lucas looked at the woman he had sparked fear into her eyes.

" Okay then we'll just get a ref in here and the wee battle shall commence ". A young man who looked around Nineteen or Twenty walked into the room, he was dressed in Black and held to flags in his hands, he suddenly announced.

" This battle is a One on One battle between gym leader Sarah and our challenger Lucas from the Sinnoh region, the Pokemon standing is the winner, the prize for the resulting winner is, for Sarah she retains her pride as a gym leader and for Lucas he shall obtain the Scent Badge, will both trainers please release their Pokemon ". The man projected his voice across the whole room, as if their were spectators.

" Aye, I choose you ma wee Chikorita ". Out from the Pokeball emerged a small Green Pokemon.

Chikorita
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/4/4d/Spr_3e_152.gif (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Spr_3e_152.gif)
The aroma Pokemon. The Pre-Evolved form of Bayleef. One of the starters traditionally given in the Johto Region. It uses the leaf on its head to determine the temperature and humidity. It loves to sunbathe as well.

" Chikorita hey, well he stands no chance againest Riolu ".

" Ri Ri Olu ". Riolu jumped off Lucas' shoulder and landed by his side, obviously ready for battle.

" Okay then, ma wee Chikorita use Razor Leaf ". The leaf on the top of Chikorita's head started to spin around, then suddenly other leaves flew towards Riolu.

" Riolu use Endure and let them hit you ". Riolu just stood there and let all the leaves hit him, all of them failed to damage him and they fell to the floor.

" Okay Chikorita, run at the wee Pokemon and then use Tackle ". Chikorita started to run towards Riolu, ready to use Tackle.

" Riolu, wait until he's in front of you then use Aura Sphere ". Chikorita moved in front of Riolu, then Riolu made a ball of Aura and thrusted it right into Chikorita's face, sending the grass Pokemon flying backwards.

" Chiko Ritaaa ". Chikorita smashed againest the wall of then gym, eventually she got up, but she looked very dazed.

" Right Riolu use Quick Attack ". Riolu ran towards Chikorita, leaving a White slipstream in his path.

" Chikorita, use PoisonPowder to cover yourself up ". As Riolu was moving closer, he had to stop as Purple spores surronded the room, meaning Chikorita couldn't be seen.

" Theres One easy way out of this, Riolu use Aura Sphere ". Riolu fired a aura ball into the air, the ball started to swerve the suddenly.

" Chiko Ritaa ". The ball was succesful in tracking down the hidden Pokemon and hitting it full pelt.

" Great work Riolu, now use Quick Attack ". Riolu ran at Chikorita leaving the same slipstream but connected with the dazed Pokemon, leaving it with even more pain.

" No, Chikorita are you okay ".

" Chik Chik Orita ". He nodded back at Sarah, he was okay.

" Okay Chikorita, run towards Riolu then use Razor Leaf ". Chikoria started to run then Once she got closer started to release leaves at Riolu.

" Ri Ri ". He didn't have enough time to react and the leaves caught him, injuring him in the process.

" Riolu use Counter ". Riolu turned Dark Brown and ran straight up to Chikorita and started to punch him, when the light faded Riolu stood over Chikorita ready for the kill.

" Ri Ri Olu ". He looked towards Lucas.

" Thats right Riolu use Aura Sphere, full power ". A huge ball of Aura emerged in Riolu palms then suddenly he thrusted his hands, and the huge ball engulfed Chikorita, then dust emerged leaving the Two Pokemon covered up.

" Chikorita, ma wee girl are you okay ".

" Riolu I don't know whats happening in there but use Aura Sphere ". Then suddenly a big Blue light appeared then.

" Chiko Rita ". He winced in pain, he had been hit by yet another Aura Sphere, when the dust finnaly settled Riolu stood there like he was the king, but a little battered Chikorita lay on the floor, beaten.

" Return Chikorita ". A flash of Red pulled the little Pokemon back to his Pokeball. " Lucas you and Riolu fought a great battle, you are superior to me in every way, so hers your Scent Badge ". She handed Lucas a little badge, he had won his First in the Orava Islands. Lucas picked up Riolu and walked out of the gym. He began to walk East, he could see a huge Power Plant in the distance, but as he was admiring the plant, a Pokemon jumped out and startled them both.

Tyson's excitement disappeared instantly, disappointed that all that popped out was an overlarge pinecone.

"Pineco!" it said in agitation, startling Tyson.

Apparently it was a pokemon, but nothing that would interest him if was added to his team. Oh well, at least it could battle. Grinning with a new found excitement, Tyson brought out his pokeball.

"Go, Charmander!" he yelled, tossing the pokeball in Pineco's direction.

With a burst of light, the fire lizard appeared, gold body giving off a sparkle as it appeared. "Char!" Charmander barked, allowing a bit of flame to escape from its mouth. It turned to Pineco, disinterest written on its face. "Char," Charmander spat, turning his head away.

"Come on, Charmander," Tyson encouraged. "A battle is a battle."

"Na," Charmander hissed, shaking his head, only to get bashed in the face by the ovregrown pinecone.

"Piiin!" Pineco snarled, doing a small spin as it hopped back, clearly agititated. "Cooe!" it screamed launching itself for another Tackle attack.

"Dodge," Tyson ordered.

Charmander jumped over the bug type, landing on a branch and continuing his decent into the trees. Pineco glared after the fire type and jumped through the trees, right behind Charmander.

"Charmander, coming up behind you!" Tyson called up to his pokemon, looking straight up from below the tree branches.

"Char!" Charmander called in understanding. Smirking, Charmander did a flip, head now pointing toward the charging Pineco. "Chaaar!" Charmander screamed, unleashing a torrent of fire balls.

"Piiiine!" Pineco screamed in pain, crashing to the ground as the Ember burned its poor body.

"Mander," Charmander chuckled, landing in front of the glaring pokemon.

"Finish it with an Ember," Tyson ordered calmly, really wishing he could find a real challenge. Honestly, a bunch of bugs against a fire type is nothing.

"Ma," Charmander barked, blowing the harsh flames at a screaming Pineco.

"Piiiii!" Pineco screamed, miraculiously staying concious.

"Huh, its still concious," Tyson commented, but as soon as he said a word, Pineco began to glow. "Was it something I said?" he asked.

"Coooooo!" Pineco screamed, body giving off a blat like an explosion. The force sent Tyson and Charmander flying back quite a ways, grunting in pain as they crashed against branches.

"...ow," Tyson muttered, cradling his arm. "Damn thing new Self Destruct." Tyson grimaced, pulling himself up and Charmander with him.

"Char," Charmander panted, looking just as beat as him from the many crashes against the trees.

"At least we won..." Tyson trailed off as the area around them buzzed with hisses, growls and angry screeches. Tyson suddenly got the feeling the large explosion from their battle had caught the attention of some type of pack, because there was obviously more than on epokemon, what with all the sounds.

"Cha," Charmander growled.

"That's right, stay strong," Tyson said, a growl of his own coming from his throat. His eyes narrowed and he no longer held his arm; body completely tense as the pokemon became revealed...

After doing a little celebration dance, He and shinx went to the rest stop to get directions and to heal. Once he got both of those things done, he set out for the next city. After a little while, Raide wanted wooper to get some fresh air and for It and shinx to become aquainted.

After sending out wooper, they walked on. Shinx and Wooper at first started out quiet, But soon began to talk in pokemon language. "You two will get along just fine" said Raide.

After a little while, Jake thought, "Hey, you two can can practice battling together!" At that moment as in signal, a pokemon popped out of a bush. "What in the world!" yelled Raide as he whipped out his pokedex...

Chris walked through the streets of Port Began. He earlier learned from another traveler, an older man with a Growlithe, that despite the name, Port Began has no working port and the lighthouse that he saw earlier was only for show. However, the town does have a Pokémon center, a pokemart and, perhaps most importantly, a Gym to challenge. According to the traveler, the Gym Leader specializes in Normal type Pokémon.

Chris soon came upon a Pokémon Center, located near the middle of the town. The automatic door slid open as he approached and he walked into the center.

"Hey, Nurse Joy." Chris waved as he walked to the counter.

The red haired nurse turned around to welcome the trainer. A Chansey stood next to her, messing around with some sort of medical machine.

"Hello." She said in a welcoming tone. She then looked at Chris with a confused look. "Umm... that’s a new Pokémon right?"

Chris and the Totodile on his shoulder shot each other a quick look. "Yes?"

"That's weird..." She said, cocking her head. "New Pokémon generally don't listen to their trainers."

Chris face turned red with embarrassment as he thought rapidly for an excuse. "Well... You see... we... umm..." Chris stuttered, trying to find the right words to get them out of this situation. Suddenly, Dile turned around and shot Chris in the face with a Water Gun attack. The nurse and Dile both let out a laugh as Chris wiped some of the water off of his face, shooting Dile a glance.

“Never mind.” She chuckled as she took the Totodile off of Chris’ shoulder and handed him a towel. “I’ll have your Totodile all healed up in a bit. Until then, you can wait over there.”
Chris walked over and sat down in a chair located in a small waiting area. After wiping the remaining water off of his face, he grabbed a magazine and began reading. For about 20 minutes, Chris was trapped the trance of the magazine, reading about new trainer gear and trainers.

“Hi There! You a trainer?!” A cheery voice yelled from in front of Chris, snapping him out of his trance and causing him to look up. In front of him stood a girl, around the age of 17. She had medium-long black hair and was wearing a skirt as well as a white top. She also wore a pink flower in her silky hair.A Meowth purred by her side as she stood in front of Chris.
http://www.pokecharms.com/trainercards/trainer/291.png

“Yeah.” Chris replied, placing the magazine on a nearby table and standing up “I’m Chris.”

“”I’m Samantha! Nice to meet you!” She replied with a smile. “I’ve just came to the Islands to Port Began and I’ve been looking for my first battle for a while so when you came into town I knew that you would be the perfect first battle which leads me to my question, ‘do you want to battle?’”

Chris seemed a bit flabbergasted by this overly excited girl’s answer, but nevertheless, he replied, “I’d like to… but I’m here to challenge the gym an-.”
“The gym!” She exclaimed and evil grin fell over her face. All of a sudden, a voice sounded over the intercom. “*DING* Chris, your Totodile is ready”

“Well… I’ll see you later then.” Chris said as he turned away and went to the counter, where Nurse Joy stood with his Totodile. “Thanks Nurse.” Chris smiled as Dile jumped onto his shoulder.

“Your Totodile was quite well behaved.” She complimented, usually most trainers-“

“You wouldn’t happen to know where the gym is” Chris interrupted, intent on changing the suspicious nurse’s train of thought.

“I do!” A cheery voice again screamed from behind.

<Aw, geez> Chris thought as he turned around, only to see Samantha standing behind him. “Well,” Chris said with a sigh, looking a bit annoyed “Can you show me where it is then?”

“Sure!” She cheerily exclaimed, grabbing Chris’ arm and practically dragging him out of the Pokémon center and out the door. Dile held on to Chris as they were swept through the streets. Finally, they came to a stop outside a huge building, much like a warehouse, that was about 3 blocks away from the PokeCenter.

“Here we are!” Samantha said as through the door open.

Chris smiled confidently “So where the leader! I’m ready to get my first badge in this region!” Suddenly, all of the lights lit up reveling a Pokémon arena and bleachers on either side. Samantha walked across to the other side of the arena, her Meowth walked beside her, happily purring
.
She let out a small chuckle and a smile as she turned around and faced Chris from the opposite side of the arena. “Silly! I’m the leader!”

Tyson gulped as the angry pokemon surrounded him, all glaring at him as if he were the cause of their discomfort.
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/9/9b/Spr_3e_193.gif (http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/9/9b/Spr_3e_193.gif)"Yanma!" they all screeched.

There were dozens of them, but two slightly bigger ones led the way, buzzing and flying together. They were obviously the leaders, and they were prepared to take out Tyson and Charmander.

"Go, Heracross!" Tyson shouted quickly, releasing the large bug.

With a burst of white light, the large beetle appeared. Taking in the situation, Heracross sood side by side with Charmander, horn lowered in preparation.

"Charmander, Ember!" Heracross, wait for the attack to hit before using Horn Attack!"

"Char!" Charmander screamed, thankful for the order to do something. Opening his mouth, Charmander unleashed the hot balls, torching the two bug pokemon.

"Yaaa!" they screamed, wings letting off an irritation sound.

"Hera!" Heracross called, charging at one of them, though still wary of them all.

"Ya!" the one on the right dodged, charging toward Charmander for a Quick Attack.

"Yaa!" the one on the left screamed, Heracross's horn gutting it.

"Cor," Heracross growled, jerking his horn in such a way that it nearly ripped off Yanma's wing.

"Yaaa!" Yanma snarled, pushing Heracross away with Tackle.

"Charmander, don't let it get near you!" Tyson shouted to the fire lizard, knowing Heracross could take care of himself.

"Mander!" Charmander barked in agreement, letting lose an Ember.

"Ma!" Yanma spat, diving out of the way of the attack. Picking up speed, it charged once more.

"Keep up that Ember!" Tyson encouraged.

"Char!" Charmander growled, the Embers coming out once more as Yanma charged, doing all it could to dodge but still charge.

Back with Heracross, it was busy ramming Yanma into the ground. With its strong claws, Heracross's were known for flinging their prey a far distance, but as Yanma could fly, Heracross wasn't aiming for the air, he was aiming for the ground.

"Yaa!" Yanma snarled, bashing into Heracross's gut.

"Cros," Heracross grunted, rubbing his stomach. Looking up with a glare, Heracross snatched the Yanma right out of the air. Smirking at the shocked and squirming bug, Heracross flew straight down.

"Go for it, Heracross!" Tyson shouted encouragingly.

"Cross!" Heracross screamed, pleased with his trainer's support. "Hera... Cross!" he roared, taking his arm and slamming Yanma right on the ground, a harsher version of Seismic Toss that only Heracross could do.

"Yaa..." Yanma said weakly, going limp.

"Maa!" the other Yanma screamed, the call of its partner causing it to turn its attention away from Charmander, allowing the fire type to get a successful hit with the effective attack.

"Maaaa!" Charmander screamed, smirking as he finally got a hit on the speedy pokemon.

"Maay!" Yanma screamed pitifully, crashing into the floor, right next to its fallen partner.

The surrounding Yanma all buzzed with uncertainty. Charmander growled angrily, launching an Ember that hit two, knocking one to the ground pretty much unconcious.

"Charmander," Tyson hissed.

The result caused panic to override the bug pokemon's senses, and they all went wild. The Yanma crashed into trees, branches, their comrads, anything as they tried to get away.

"Run!" Tyson roared as one Yanma nearly crashed into his head in a desperate attempt to get away. Get away from what (he assumed he had become the threat) he wasn't entirely sure.

"Char!"

"Her!"

The two pokemon barked their agreement, running at Tyson's heals as they duck and wove between the branches. They didn't stop for a long time, not until the crazy buzzing could no longer be heard, and until they were met with the sight of...

Tyson looked forward and saw a small bird pokemon with dark blue feathers ahead in the clearing. The pokemon was on the ground, eating a large berry it had obviously picked from a nearby tree.Tyson crept forward slowly, so not to attract the attention of the bird. He managed to reach the edge of the clearing without being noticed...

Tyson looked forward and saw a small bird pokemon with dark blue feathers ahead in the clearing. The pokemon was on the ground, eating a large berry it had obviously picked from a nearby tree.Tyson crept forward slowly, so not to attract the attention of the bird. He managed to reach the edge of the clearing without being noticed... that is until he stepped on a crunchy sounding branch.

"Son of a..."

"Taillow!" he bird pokemon screeched, charging at Tyson like a possessed demon, talons at the ready.

"Go dangit," Tyson muttered, nodding to Charmander at his side.

"Charmander, use Ember!"

"Char!" Charmander screamed, launching the flame attack towards Taillow.

"Tail!" Taillow called, doing some type of spin dive to get out of the way of the incoming fire balls. "Low! Low!" Taillow cawed with vigor, Pecking Charmander on the head.

"Ma! Ma!" Charmander cried out in pain.

"Get it away with Scratch!" Tyson ordered.

Sharp claws slashing crazily in the air, Charmander somehow landed a good hit on Taillow's wing, sending it careening toward the ground. "Tow!" Taillow spat, quickly righting itself just before it crashed to the ground. Glaring, Taillow charged again, beak poised at the ready. "Taaailow!"

"Wait until the last moment," Tyson whispered. "Use an Ember at such a close range it couldn't possibly dodge."

Charmander growled, nodding to show he understood. "Char..." Charmander said lowly, body tensing in preparation.

Taillow, who was continuing his dive, noticed the tense muscles, mistaking it for the fear he usually got when challenging the bug types of this forest. With a beaky smirk, Taillow picked up speed. "Taaai!"

Charmander grinned widely, mouth already a lit with flames. "Charmander!" Charmander roared, muzzle open and releasing the flaming balls, just as Taillow picked up speed. "Maaa!" Charmander continued to screamed, not stopping until he heard the scream of his opponent.

Taillow blanched, wings beating quickly as it tried to stop and turn around, but that took away few precious seconds, making it almost too easy for the flame balls to catch up to him. "Taaaaii!" Taillow screamed in pain as the flames pounded against his back.

"Good job," Tyson told Charmander. "Use another Ember!"

"Chaaar!" Charmander barked, sending another blast of hot flames at the hurt Taillow.

"Taii!" Taillow cawed, flipping over the flames, determined not to show weakness or get hit. "Looow!" Taillow screamed, dive bombing Charmander once more for Peck attack.

"Quick, Smokescreen!" Tyson let out hurriedly, worried about the sudden speed Taillow was going. It would hit Charmander in any second and cause some major damage with that speed.

"Ma!" Charmander grunted, opening its mouth wide. Instead of hot flames, a cool, inky black smoke crawled out of his mouth, surrounding the area and making the opponents blinded.

"Tail," Taillow grunted angrily, trying to look around carefully. Unfortunately for Taillow, he couldn't see a thing. "Tai!" Taillow let out in pain as something Scratched his wing. "Low!" Taillow cried, Pecking at the area, only to find air. "Tail," Taillow said nervously, gliding slowly through the smoky area.

"Char!" a loud bark came, nearly making Taillow jump out of his skin. "Ma!"

"Tai!" Taillow cried out again, getting another sharp Scratch to the other wing, making it nearly unbearable to remain in the air. "Low!" Taillow cawed, once again Pecking at air, and again missing his target.

"Char!" came the cry again, but this time Taillow was ready.

"Taaai!" Taillow screamed, charging toward the sound, beak a glow with power and eyes narrowed in anger. "Looow!"

There was a soft chuckle, and Taillow only had a brief moment to realized that it was below him As he looked down, there was the Charmander, lying on his back and grinning up at him.

"Low.... Tai!" Taillow cried out, completely slamming into a tree like a fool. "Tai," Taillow muttered in pain, using his wings to push him up from the ground.

"Char," Charmander hissed, a wide grin on his face as he stood over the fallen flying type.

"Finish it, Charmander!" Tyson called, just as the smoke began to fade away.

"Char," Charmander grunted, firing the Ember close range at the glaring Taillow.

"Taaaaa!" Taillow screamed, collapsing to the ground in a dead faint before the attack was even finished.

"Ma!" Charmander spat, letting lose a little flame from his nose in victory, looking smug.

"Era," Heracross said, walking over to congragulate Charmander. It handed the fire type some of the berries Taillow had been eating earlier. Heracross had already had some, but when Charmander swallowed two, it felt like his health was coming back.

"Chac," Charmander thanks.

Heracross nodded and placed the remaining berries by Taillow's unconcious head. "Hera," Heracross stated, nodding to Tyson.

Tyson grinned. "Yea, let's get out of here. I'm sick of this forest."

The pokemon nodded in agreement, and, before they knew it, they had reached an open field, and they were met with the sight of...

OOC: I'll let you decide, of course, but I have a question. Am I allowed to say a trainer ran into me, or is it only you that can do that?

@Wolfwhispers - Nice post. To anser your question, you can do your own trainer battles, as long as they are within reason.

Congratulations Charmander grew to Level 13

Congratulations you have left the Forest and entered Route One. This short route connects Maritime Forest and Moray Town.

...before they knew it, they had reached an open field, and they were met with the sight of a small creature which bore resemblance to a teddy bear. The creature had short brown fur that covered its entire body, except for its mouth and the crescent moon marking on its head. The creature was sucking on its paw, and was undeniably cute. Tyson guessed that it was lost, as it was looking around for something. Then the teddy bear like creature saw Tyson...

...before they knew it, they had reached an open field, and they were met with the sight of a small creature which bore resemblance to a teddy bear. The creature had short brown fur that covered its entire body, except for its mouth and the crescent moon marking on its head. The creature was sucking on its paw, and was undeniably cute. Tyson guessed that it was lost, as it was looking around for something. Then the teddy bear like creature saw Tyson...


"Teddi!" it cried out, taking its paw out of its mouth and curling its claws, ready for a battle. Tyson hurriedly brought his pokedex to see what this pokemon was.
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/a/a7/Spr_3f_216.png (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Spr_3f_216.png)Teddiursa, the teddy bear pokemon. This pokemon allows honey to soak into its nails so that it may suck on them later. Every claw has a peculiar taste.

"So another battle, huh?" Tyson smirked, un able to believe he had encountered so many battles today. "Heracross, you up for this?"

"Hera!" Heracross said eagerly, wanting to gain some experience.

Tyson was unable to hide a grin at his excitement. "Alright, let's start off with Horn Attack!"


"Hcro!" Heracross bellowed, shell opening to reveal his beating wings. With a smile, Heracross took off, horn glowing with power and yellow eyes alight in the sunlight.

"Teeedi!" Teddiursa screamed, flying backwards as the horn bashed into his stomach. Getting up, Teddiursa marched right up to Heracross. The bug was prepared, however, and just stood over the bear... that is until...

"T.E.D.I?" Teddiursa said with a purposeful slowness, large eyes becoming watery as it gave off a pitiful cry.

Heracross was taken aback, blinking in confusion.

"Ted... ursa!" Teddiursa screamed, face turning into a nasty grin and leaping at the shell shocked Heracross. "Teed!" With its cry, is Scratched at Heracross's stomach.

"Herc!" heracross barked in surprise, jumping back in shock at the strange pokemon.

"Tedd..." Teddiursa said pitifully, staring up at Heracross with another watery face.

"Ignore those Fake Tears," Tyson ordered, just a bit too harshly. "Use Horn Attack!"

"Herc!" Heracross bellowed, angry at itself for falling for such a trick. Taking off, Heracross gutted the tiny bear, resulting in a high pitched squeal of pain.

"Urs!" Teddiursa cried. Growling, it charged at Heracross, claws up at the ready.

"Dodge!" Tyson ordered.

"Hera! Hera! Hera!" Heracross said with each dodge, body turning lef and right as Teddiursa tried to Scratch him. "Corss!" Heracross cried, finally Tackling the tiny bear back.

"Tediii," Teddiursa growled from the ground, huffing in irriation. After a moment, it sighed and walked up to Heracross, holding out is hands in a begging symbol and gave a loud cry, tears running down its face. "Teddd!" it cried.

"Cros," Heracross, grumbling, bringing a claw to his head in irritation. Herr," he breath exasperation.

Tyson chuckled a bit nervously, glad that Teddiursa's Covet attack was useless. "Heracross, Horn Attack," he said with a grin.

"Croos!" Heracross bellowed, attacking with a much needed vigor. "Herr!" Horn glowing, Teddiursa was slammed back by the powerful horn.

"Td... Ted!" Teddiursa bounced along the ground, grunting in pain. "Urs!" Teddiursa screamed in anger, running at Heracross with its tongue hanging out, prepared to use its Lick attack.

"Heracross, finished it," Tyson ordered.

Heracross nodded in understanding. Grinning, Heracross charged at Teddiursa, using its feet instead of its wings. "Corr!" Heracross called, grabbing Teddiursa by the arm and holding it up from the ground.

"Ted! Ted! Ted!" Teddiursa snarled, squirming in Heracross's hold, claws waving and tongue trying to hit the giant beetle.

Heera," Heracross said slowly, mockingly. With a large grin, Heracross took a deep breath and threw the poor pokemon high into the air. "Cross!"

"Teeeed!" Teddiursa screamed, flailing about in the air, tears falling like a waterfall as he fell towards the ground and landed with loud bang. "Ted..." Teddiursa cried softly from within the small hole it created from the impact.

"Cross!" Heracross snapped, stomping hard on Teddiursa's body until its eyes no longer fluttered open.

Tyson laughed when the giant bug finally stopped. "Wow, Heracross. You don't think that's a little much, do you?"

"Cross," Heracross said with a laugh, rubbing the back of his head.

Tyson sighed, glancing at the unconcious pokemon until a crunch off to the side alerted him. A boy, about his age, came through the trees. He was wearing baggy brown pants and a white shirt. He was lugging a backpack behind and had his sandy brown hair covered by a red cap. HIs face brightened when he saw Tyson.

"Oh, hey! I haven't seen another trainer at all until now! Im Andrew, what's your name?"

"Tyson," Tyson replied with an easy grin. "So, wanna battle?"

"Sure!" Andrew grinned back before his eyes landed on the defeated Teddiursa. "Uh, your work?"

"...Uh, yea," Tyson said with a laugh.

"Mind if I catch it if you don't want it? I've been wanting to get an Ursaring."

"Sure," Tyson said with a shrug as Heracross and Charmander got behind him, ready to get called out to battle.

Andrew gave him a nod of thanks before tossing a pokeball on the fallen bear. After it shook three times it ended with a 'ping'. "Alright, two on two sound good?"

"Sounds good to me! You ready, Charmander?" he nodded at the fire lizard.

"Char!" Charmander barked, coming out in front and letting out a burst of flame.

Andrew grinned and grabbed one of his own pokeballs. "Go...!"

Chris and Dile stood on the opposite side of the gym arena, both flabbergasted by what Samantha had announced.

"You're the leader?!" Chris yelled across the gym.

"Who else?" Samantha calmly stated with a smile. Suddenly, her smile turned to an evil grin, "Let's get this battle going!" She motioned to a door, where a Pokemon official appeared, walking to the center of the field.

"This will be a one on one battle!" The official yelled "The Challenger, Chris Eaton, is battling the Port Began gym leader, Samantha! Challenger, send out your Pokemon."

"(Remember what we talked about Dile)" Chris whispered aside to Dile, then yelling "Ok, Dile, you're up!" Dile jumped off of Chris' shoulder and onto the battlefield, taking a fighting pose.

"Go Meow!" The meowth that stood next to Samantha eargerly jumped into the areana. It's claws glistened under the stadium lights.

"Chris' Totodile against Samantha's Meowth." The referee announced "Ready? Begin!"

"Dile, use Water Gun!" Chris commanded. Dile took a deep breath, then released, shooting a large stream of water at the opposing Meowth.

"Quick Meow, dodge and use Scratch attack!"

The Meowth dodged the Water Gun attack with cat-like reflexes (duh...) then pounced at Dile, with it's claws glistening out in front of it.

"Dile, quick, use Leer!" Dile's eye's grew a dark green as he stared at the oncoming danger. However, the attack failed, and Dile was hit with a powerful scratch attack, sending Dile skidding a few feet back.

"Good Job Meow!" Samantha complimented, then yelling across the stadium to Chris, "I was hoping that you would be a better battler then this..." She shrugged, "...but I guess I was wrong!"

"It's not over yet!" Chris confidently said as Dile recovered. "Dile use Water Gun, then use Scratch!"

Dile rapidly fired a Water Gun attack, hitting the Meowth in face and causing it to put it's paws in front of it's face in an attempt to block the attack. Seeing it's oppertunity, Dile rushed forward and hit the Meowth with a Scratch attack of his own. The Meowth was knocked down and skidded across the battlefield, while Dile jumped back to put some distance between the two.

The Meowth slowly got back up, longing for revenge.

"Great Job, Dile!" Chris complimented to the Totodile, "Now use Scratch attack before it can recover."

Dile leaped forward at the Meowth, his claws shined as they scraped across of the Meowth's face, sending the Meowth crashing back onto the floor of the arena. However, the Meowth got back up one more and resumed a fighting stance.

"Meow!" Samantha yelled, attempting to regain control of the battle "Use Growl, then Scratch!"

The Meowth let out a deafening roar, freezing Dile in place for a moment. The Meowth then lunged at Dile with it's sharp claws.

"Dile, lets finish this with Water Gun!" Dile took another huge breath, then shot a torrent of water at the Meowth, hitting it in mid-air and sending it flying across the stadium. It flew past Samantha, slamming into the wall with a crash and falling to the floor.

"Meowth is unable to battle, challenger, Chris, is the winner!"

"Yes!" Chris exclaimed, as Dile jumped back onto Chris' shoulder "Great job Dile!" He complimented, petting the small crocodile on the head.

"I lost..." Samantha sullenly said to herself, tears forming in her eyes. Wiping them away, she returned her Meowth to it's ball. "You did good, Meow." She then slowly walked across the arena to Chris, taking a badge out of her pocket. "Thank you for a good, first, battle." She said, holding the badge out in front of her, "This is the Round Badge, it's one of the badges we offer here on the Orava Islands. I hand it out to trainers that I see are worthy, and I'd like you to have it." She gave the badge to Chris before resuming to her previous, cheerful voice, "That means you have only 7 more to go!"

Chris and Dile stood on front of her for a moment, both again shocked by her change in mood. "Thank you for the battle." Chris finally said with a smile "It was fun."

Samantha blushed a little as Chris turned and headed out the door. "Come back some time for another battle!" She yelled waving to Chris as he walked down the street away from the gym.
---------------

Chris walked down the street away from the gym, inspecting the badge as he walked. the setting sun glistened off of the badge, causing it to shine. <My first badge in the Islands...> Chris thought to himself as the two continued to walk back to the Poke Center. He couldn't help but smile as he looked at it.

"Totodile!" Dile suddenly exclaimed, snapping Chris out of his day dream. A Pokemon stood in the middle of the street, eying Chris and Dile.

"Alright! A _______!" Chris pulled an empty Pokeball off of his belt and placed the badge in his pocket. " And this time, I'm ready!"

Andrew grinned and grabbed one of his own pokeballs. "Go, Wingull!" With a burst of white light, the white and blue bird appeared. "That's a cool shiny, by the way," Andrew said, grinning.

Tyson grinned back easily, liking this kid. "Thanks, and that's one strong Wingull you got." His face hardened slightly. "But its not enough to stop us! Charmander, Smokecreen!"

Andrew's grin faltered as Charmander opened his muzzle, unleashing the inky smoke and covering the area. "Char!" Charmander smirked, eyes following the bird easily.

"Wing..." Wingull murmered nervously, fluttering his wings to stay in place.

"Wingull, Water Gun!" Andrew called, eyes trying to squinting through the mist.

"Wing!" Wingull cried, shooting a blast of water in a random direction.

Tyson grinned as he saw Charmander easily evade the attack. The Water Gun was way off target. "Scratch!" he ordered in a low hiss.

"Char," Charmander said quietly, crawling low toward Wingull.

"Wingull, keep up that Water Gun!" Andrew kept calling the smoke, still going.

Charmander chuckled under his breath, crawling on all fours, the Water Gun attacks going right over his head. "Charr!" Charmander screamed, making the Wingul choke on his own water from the shock.

"Wing! Wing! Wing!" WIngul spat, practically drowning.

"Maner!" Charmander snarled, jumping at the flying pokemon, claws gleaming. "Ma!" Charmander spat, raking his claws against Wingull.

"Wiii!" Wingull screamed in pain, crashing to the ground.

"Charr!" Charmander screamed, beating Wingull on the back with an Ember attack.

"Wi!" Wingull said angrily, using a Water Gun to put out the flames easily. "Gu!" Wingull flew back a bit, firing another Water Gun, hitting Charmander in the gut.

"Charr!" Charmander screamed in pain, the water being super effective.

"Charmander, fight back with another smokescreen!" Tyson called as the smoke from earlier faded away.

"Mist!" Andrew bellowed, wanting Wingull to have his own advantage as well.

"Wing!"

"Charm!"

The two pokemon let out the black and white smoke, making it turn the area into a mix of yin and yang chaos.

"Ember!"

"Water Gun!"

The fire and water attacks were launched, hitting each other head on and creating an explosion.

"Charm!" Charmander screamed as he was launched back.

"Wi!" Wingull screamed, bouncing across the ground.

Snarling, the fire lizard got to his feet, shaking. All the battles from the whole day were just catching up. "Char," he panted.

"Charmander, let's finish this with a Scratch!" Tyson ordered.

Nodding, Charmander charged, rolling to the side as Wingull let out a Water Gun at the order of its trainer. "Mande!" Charmander screamed, slashing at Wingull.

Wiiiing!" Wingull screamed in pain.

"Finihs it!" Tyson roared.

"Chaaaar!" Charmander snarled loudly, mouth lighting up with its inner flame, angry. "Cham!" Charmander slashing once more at the weakened Wingull.

"Wing!" Wingull cried, falling to the ground.

"Wingull!" Andrew called out worriedly, having no choice but to wait for the Mist and Smokescreen to disappear. It took a full minute before it finally cleared enough for Andrew to see his fainted pokemon. He sighed. "Return, Wingull."

"Come back, Charmander," Tyson ordered, taking in Charmander's worn out panting and sweating body.

"Car," Charmander sighed in relief, trotting over by Tyson's side.

"You're up, Heracross," Tyson said, nodding to the giant beetle.

"Hera!" Heracross called, jumping in front of Andrew.

Andrew grinned. "Go, Pinsir!"

With a burst of white light, a giant bug with pincers appeared.

"Pins!" it called, tapping its pincers together.

Heracross faltered, blinking at its opponent. "Cross..."

"Heracross, use Horn Attack!" Tyson ordered.

"Pinsir, Vice Grip!" Andrew ordered.

"Pnis!" Pinsir screamed, charging at Heracross. The giant beetle just stood there.

"Heracross, what are you doing!?" Tyson shouted.

"Hera!" Heracross grunted, gritting his teeth as Pinsir tightened its hold over Heracross's horn. They could now see each other's faces. "Cros," Heracross said pleasantly, smiling at Pinsir.

"Pin!" Pinsir snarled, throwing Heracross to the ground.

"Heracross, Horn Attack!" Tyson barked.

"Cross," Heracross said, flying at Pinsir. Instead of bashing it, Heracross picked Pinsir up and slammed it down on it back, getting a loud gasp from the pokemon. "Cors!" Heracross bellowed, slamming his horn on the fallen pokemons stomach.

"Pinsir, Revenge!" Andrew ordered.

Eyes glowing purple, Pinsir slapped Heracross back, but the beetle just looked amused, continually flying around Pinsir.

"Heracross?" Tyson questioned.

"Cross!" Heracross bellowed, charging at Pinsir, horn slammed into Pinsir, pinning the pokemon down.

"Pinsi!" Pinsir snarled, thrashing uner the weight of Heracross.

"Pinsir, try and get free! Revenge!"

"Heracross, finish it!" Tyson bellowed.

"Cross," Heracross said pleasantly, applying a bit more pressure onto Pinsir, cutting off its circulation.

"Pins," Pinsir said lowly, calming down and going still. The glare on its face held firm for a good few minutes before it went away, giving a defeated look. "Pins," it said, softly this time and offering its neck to Heracross.

"Uh..." Tyson was at a loss. "Does that mean I won?" he asked.

"Cross!" Heracross barked, walking toward the forest, Pinsir hot at its heels, and the two disappeared from sight.

"Uh, your Pinsir woudn't happen to be a girl, would it?" Tyson asked.

Andrew slapped his forehead. "And Heracross is a boy, isn't it?"

Tyson nodded, giving a sigh. "So, what now?"

"I guess we wait until they come back," Andrew said, looking uncomfortable.

And so they waited, talking about random things and nonesense until it got dark out. The two set up camp, determined not to leave the area until their pokemon had returned.

"Hey, what are those?" Tyson asked, pointing up at teh clear sky. There was a flock of something flying under the moonlight.

"Oh!" Andrew said with a laugh. "Those are...!"

"Ok, this thing is just wierd."

"Go, Wooper!" Yelled Raide, throwing Woopers pokeball into the air.

Wooper came out with an anxious "Wooper!"
Wooper was glad that he wasn't in his cramped pokeball anymore.

"Ok wooper use water gun!" said Raide.

"Woop!" Wooper yelled as it jumped into the air and used water gun. Gulpin dodged it, and moved forward, trying to get to wooper so it could use pound. It was succeding.

"Wooper use tail whip, then use water gun!" Yelled Raide.

Wooper's tail started to move from side to side as Wooper used a water gun.

The blow obviously Hurt Gulpin, But gulpin managed to keep moving. It jumped into the air to use pound.

"Water gun now!" Yelled Raide.

"Woop!" yelled Wooper as it used water gun to send Gulpin flying towards the ground.

Before it passed out, The gulpin used yawn, and wooper started to feel a little tired.

"Return wooper" said raide with a sigh. In a flash of red light, wooper was back in it's pokeball.

"ewwwww... Go shinx!" said Raide plugging his nose.

Shinx came out with the usual "shinx!"

"Okay shinx, use Pound!" yelled Raide.
Shinx obeyed, and sent the stunky flying backwards.
Stunky used poison gas, ad Raide almost fell over from the horrible stench.

"Hang in there Shinx, and use Pound!" yelled Raide, plugging his nose again.
Shinx obeyed, and sent the skuntank flying. "Now use leer!" yelled Raide, still plugging his nose.

Shinx didn't get to finish the move before stunky came rushing at shinx with a pound attack.

"use tackle!" yelled Raide. The both went fying towards eachother, but because of the leer attack, shinx sent stunky flying backwards.

"Stunk" yelled stnky, passing out.

Soon, Raide finally came upon the pokemon center, and healed his pokemon.

Unsure of to challange the gym or not, he went back to route 3 to train. Suddenly, a ________ appeared out of nowhere!

Chris walked down the street away from the gym, inspecting the badge as he walked. the setting sun glistened off of the badge, causing it to shine. <My first badge in the Islands...> Chris thought to himself as the two continued to walk back to the Poke Center. He couldn't help but smile as he looked at it.

"Totodile!" Dile suddenly exclaimed, snapping Chris out of his day dream. Looking at Chris and Dile from the street was a pokemon that had a large head with blonde hair, purple colored skin, large eyes and a pair of large lips. The pokemon began walking towards Chris and Dile, with her head rocking back and forth...

"Alright! A Smoochum!" Chris pulled an empty Pokeball off of his belt and placed the badge in his pocket. " And this time, I'm ready! Dile, Go!" Dile jumped off of Chris' shoulder and in front of the Smoochum. The large-lipped Pokemon eyed Dile menacingly as the stood in the middle of the street. A cold wind blew through the abandoned street, and the setting sun caused an orange tint on the pavement.

"Dile use Leer!" Chris commanded, his voice echoing of the empty streets.

Dile's eyes glowed a dark green as he stared intently at the Smoochum. Suddenly a frightened look appeared on the Smoochum's face and instead of fighting back, it ran down the street into a back alley.

"Hey! Come back!" Chris yelled as the two pursued the fleeing Pokemon. They turned down the back-alley where the Smoochum had dissapeared only moments before.

"Smoochum!" Chris shouted down the alley hoping to find out where the Pokemon had went. Suddenly they heard a low growl from behind. The duo turned, only to see....

Hey, what are those?" Tyson asked, pointing up at the clear sky. There was a flock of something flying under the moonlight.

"Oh!" Andrew said with a laugh. "Those are Hoothoot. They sleep during the day, and only come out at night time..."
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/5/5a/Spr_3e_163.gif (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Spr_3e_163.gif)

Tyson grinned up at the brown pokemon, watching them fly around together. A few noticed Andrew and him, and he directed his smile at Charmander. The lizard was eyeing him expectantly, tail wagging and sending bits of fire flecks in the air.

"Charmander, Ember," Tyson said eagerlly.

"Char!" Charmander laughed, launching the fire attack straight up, hitting one Hoothoot in the stomach.

"Hoo!" it cried out angrily, coming down for a Tackle attack.

Andrew laughed. "Good idea! Go, Wingull! Water Gun!"

While Andrew fought with his own, Tyson was busy directing Charmander against his own opponent. "Charmander, Ember!"

"Charm!" Mouth opening, the ball flames shot out at Hoothoot.

The owl cooed in anger, flapping its small wings to get out of the way. "Hot!" Hoothoot cried, bashing into Charmander.

"Cha!" Charmander gasped, getting the air knocked out of it. "Char," Charmander grunted, rubbing his stomach.

"Hoo! Hoo!" Hoothoot exclaimed happily, getting encouraging cries from its flock.

Tyson ignored the other pokemon. "Charmander, Ember!"

"Cha!" Charmander called, though not as loudly since it was still a little breathless. "Ma!" Charmander spat, pleased to see its attack hit.

"Toot!" Hoothoot cried, wincing as it nearly crashed into the ground from the grunt of the attack. "Ho!" Hoothoot snarled, charging at Charmander for another Tackle.

"Meet it head on!" Tyson commanded.

Tail swishing behind it much like a lizards, Charmander charged, claws at the ready. "Chaaam!" Charmander growled, launching itself into the air, its claws hitting Hoothoot first since Hoothoot needed its whole body to knock into Charmander.

"Hoot," Hoothoot mumbled, shaking in pain and eyes closing in a grimace. Tyson noted that it had been burned in the side and was most likely experiencing the effects.

"Charmander, let's finish it with an Ember!"

"Char!" Charmander cried eagerly, fireing the flames.

"Toot!" Hoothoot scoffed, diving out of the way almost easily. It seems that Charmander had gotten a little too confident, thinking it had won before its opponent was down. "Hoo hoo," Hoothoot said slowly, eyes beginning to spin and glow red.

"Chaar... man." Charmander fell to the ground, a light snore and a bit of smoke coming out of its nose, indicating it was asleep.

"Bad luck there," Andrew said, holding a pokeball with his newly captured Hoothoot. "Alost got my Wingull with that.

"Charmander!" Tyson called, ignoring the other boy. "Charmander, get your butt up!"

"Chrrr..." Charmander snoozed away.

"Hoot!" Hoothoot cried in victory, slamming into Charmander for a Tackle attack. It was determined to cut down its health before it got up.

"Charmander!" Tyson growled in anger as he saw his lizard get bashed once more.

"Tooh!" Hoothoo laughed, doing little flips in the air, though still grimacing every now and then from the burn. The thought made Tyson smile knowing Hoothoot was at least getting some damage. "Too!" Hoothoot cried again, charging for its Tackle attack.

"Charmander!" Tyson barked again, body shaking.

At that moment, after the three attacks Hoothoot delt to Charmander, the fire lizards eyes snapped open. "Char!" Charmander spat, rolling backwards to avoid the collision with Hoothoot.

"Hoot!" Hoothoot cried out in pain, crashing into the ground.

"Charrrr," Charmander said lowly, lava coming out of Charmander's mouth like saliva.

Tyson grinned, knowing how mad Charmander was. "Finish it," he said simply.

Charmander nodded, a light sneer on his face. "Chaaar!" Charmander snarled, muzzle wide and unleashing the harsh flame attack, hitting its target straight on.

"Hooooo!" Hoothoot cried, eyes shut as the pain raked its body. When the attack was over, Hoothoot slumped to its side, worn out an unconcious.

"Cha," Charmander spat, giving a light sniff but otherwise looking proud of himself.

The surrounding Hoothoot waited for Tyson to capture their friend, but when he made no move to do so, they picked him up with their talons and flew off.

"You don't really capture that many pokemon, do you?" Andrew asked.

Tyson just shrugged when Charmander said, "Cha!" and pointing to the forest.

Heracross and Pinsir were comming back. Heracross kind of strutted forward, looking properly shagged. The same went for Pinsir.

"What, no egg?" Andrew teased.

Pinsir gave her trainer a harsh look that said, 'What? Every time a pokemon does it apparently they have an egg?'

Andrew smartly backed off.

"Cross," Heracross greeted Tyson and Charmander, lifting a hand in greeting.

"Hey, Heracross," Tyson said. "Have fun?"

Heracross nodded, looking pleased.

"Cha?" Charmander questioned, sniffing the bug pokemon.

Not wanting it to get awkward, Tyson said, "Perhaps we should move on. Even though its late, the town is basically right there..." He just sort of waved off in the distance.

"Alright," Andrew agreed, now walking alongside Tyson as they grabbed their stuff.

A few minutes of walking, and they both saw the town. Breathing out a sigh of relief and sharing large grins, they both entered the pokemon center.

"Do you two have any idea how late it is?!" came the greeting from Nurse Joy.

Too tired to argue, they handed over their recalled pokemon for them to heal.

"So, I was wondering," Andrew started, looking a little nervous. "Well, your Heracross really likes my Pinsir... and well, was wondering if you would like to..."

"Trade?" Tyson finished for Andrew looking thoughtful, not entirely sure what to do yet.

"Well, what pokemon do you have, aside from Wingull, Pinsir, Hoothoot and Teddiursa?"

Andrew grinned. " I have a few more. I have..."

OOC: This is the part where you describe to me the town, and tell me if I can trade and what other pokemon Andrew has. :)

@Wolfwhispers - "You don't really capture that many pokemon, do you?" Andrew asked.

I've noticed that as well... :)

Congratulations Charmander grew to Level 17 and can now evolve!

I'm okay with you trading if you want to...

"Trade?" Tyson finished for Andrew looking thoughtful, not entirely sure what to do yet.

"Well, what pokemon do you have, aside from Wingull, Pinsir, Hoothoot and Teddiursa?"

Andrew grinned. " I have a few more. I have a Aipom and a Snorunt as well if you are interested... "

Andrew grinned. " I have a few more. I have a Aipom and a Snorunt as well if you are interested... "

"Hmm," Tyson thought, tapping his chin, nearly jumping as Nurse Joy called to them to get their pokemon. "Hang on, I gotta ask Heracross."

Andrew nodded in understanding and moved away.

"Come on out, Heracross," Tyson said softly.

"Hera," Heracross said, shaking itself and blinking up at Tyson.

"Er, Heracross," Tyson began a bit nervously, getting a cocked head from the giant beetle. "Look, you like that Pinsir, right?"

"Cros," Heracross confirmed.

Tyson shuffled nervously. "Well, what I'm trying to say is, would you be happier with Andrew and Pinsir?"

Understanding lit Heracross's eyes. "Cor," it said, nodding at Tyson.

"Would you like to stay with him? I could, you know, trade you..."

Heracross lowered his head in thought, glancing at Pinsir every now and then before looking at Tyson. "Cross," he said, nodding.

Tyson let out a breath. Alright then. I suppose this is goodbye..."

"Cross," Heracross said, smiling at Tyson and giving out his hand.

Tyson grinned and shook the clawed hand, marveling at its strength in its grip.

"You ready?" Andrew asked, coming over and leading a bouncy looking Snorunt.

"Sno!" Snorunt said, waving up at Tyson.

Andrew laughed a little nervously. "She never really liked me all that much," he admitted. "I think she'll be good with a new face around."

Tyson grinned down, offering a hand to Snorunt. "It's nice to meet you Snorunt."

"Ru!" Snorunt giggled, twirling around.

Tyson got back up and unleashed Charmander, knowing the fire lizard would want to say goodbye. "Cha!" Charmander spat, looking around for a battle.

"Cor cor corss Herac," Heracross explained, gesturing over to Andrew.

"Char!" Charmander spat, looking enraged, glaring at the giant bug.

Heracross just chuckled, patting Charmander's head. "Her."

"Char!" Charmander snarled, swiping the hand away from his head. Giving a sneer at Snorunt, Charmander turned away. "Mander!" he barked angrily, glowing suddenly.

"Charmander!" Tyson snapped in both admonishment and shock as his pokemon began to change shape.

When the light had ended, Charmander seemed to have grown bigger. It had longer claws, a mean look and a single horn on its head. "Charmeleon," the newly dubbed Charmeleon growled, blowing a bit of fire from its nose in Heracross's direction. "Ch," it growled, turning away.

"Cross," Heracross said, just looking amused but still waved to the back of the fire type, nodding at Tyson to get started.

Wtih a sigh, Tyson recalled both his pokemon, Andrew doing the same and heading over to the machine. "Ready?" he asked Andrew.

"Ready," the boy replied, placing his pokeball in the machine.

After a moment, the pokeballs switched places, and Tyson was allowed to read the stats of his pokemon. He had already known Snorunt was a girl, but now he knew what attacks she had and that she had been at the same level as Heracross. Quite convenient.

"Boy, I'm beat!" Andrew said with a yawn. "I'm off to bed."

Tyson eagerly followed, knowing he would explore the village tommorow and fight the gym leader. He could already feel the badge in his hand.

Suddenly they heard a low growl from behind. The duo turned, only to see what looked like a small gray dog. The dog was growling at Chris and Dile, and was looking for a battle...
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/4/4b/Spr_4d_261.png (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Spr_4d_261.png)

Chris looked down the street, only to see the fleeting image of the Smoochum. "Let's go Dile, it's getting away!" Chris and Dile took a step to pursue the Smoochum, only to have the Poochyena cut them off. It growled menacingly as Chris began to slowly back up.

"Alright, Poochyena..." Chris said in a calm tone, "It's OK, we didn't mean to bother you or anything..."

However, the Poochyena wasn't interested in why they where there, and it jumped at Dile, hitting him with a Tackle attack and sending him spiraling across the ground. As Dile recovered the Poochyena let out a howl, before readying itself for another attack.

Chris couldn't help but smile at the Pokemon's eagerness. "Dile, Use Water Gun!"

"Totodile." Dile said before he took a deep breath or air, then shooting a huge blast of water at the Poochyena and sending it flying into a pair of trash cans. Dile breathed heavily as the Poochyena recovered and shook off some of the garbage that had fallen on it.

<This is bad...> Chris thought to himself <Dile is getting tired. Three battles in such a short time is having it's effects on him. We got to end this, fast.> All of a sudden, the Poochyena let out another howl, snapping Chris into reality, before it began running at the Totodile in preparation for a Tackle attack.

"Hold strong, Dile!" Chris called, and Dile gave him a quick nod. He then dug his claws into the ground, bracing for impact. The Poochyena impacted Dile square in the chest, causing him to slide back a little. "Now! Throw it!"

Dile grabbed the Poochyena by the fur and spun around in a circle in preparation for a huge throw. The Poochyena struggled to break free, but had no idea how to react to the situation. After three spins, Dile let go, sending the Poochyena slamming into a wall.However, despite the powerful move, the Poochyena got back up running at full speed for a final assault. It jumped into the air, speeding at Dile.

"Dile, jump left!" Chris called out to Dile.

Dile quickly dodged to the left of the attack, barely missing the oncoming attack. Unfortunately for the Poochyena, it kept going past Dile, hitting it's head on the brick wall of the building in the alleyway. The Poochyena collapsed in a heap, strained from the impact.

Chris saw his moment and rapidly took an empty Pokeball off of his belt. "Go!" he yelled, as he threw the Pokeball at the downed Poochyena. The Pokemon was sucked into the ball and it began to rock back and forth. "Comon.... Comon..." Chris said to himself, as the ball continued to vibrate...

February 7th, 2009, 02:13 PM
@Wolfsrain - The ball shook left to right a few more times, before stopping and letting out a ding to signify that the capture had been succesful...

Tyson and Andrew had gone their separate ways in the morning, Andrew going off to train and Tyson now standing in front of the pokemon gyn. A little nervous, especially with one new pokemon and one angry one angry one, Tyson opened the door to the gym and began to look around. There was a large stadium in the very center, at the end was a man that was already waiting.

He turned to Tyson as he came in. "New challenger?" he asked gruffly.

Tyson nodded. "Yes, I'm here for the next gym badge."

"Very well, I am George, the gym leader. We battle until our pokemon can no longer stand. Two verse two. Are you ready?" He waited for Tyson to nod again. "Good. Go, Pidgey!"

With a burst of white light, a light brown bird pokemon appeared. "Pid!" it cooed, flapping its wings to get airborn.

"Go, Snorunt!" Tyson called, grinning as he realized he had the type advantage here. "Snorunt, use Powder Snow!"

"Pidgey, dodge and use Quick Attack!"

"Pidgey!" Pidgey dove, narrowly avoiding the icy attack and becoming a blur as it charged at Snorunt.

"Snorunt, Double Team," Tyson said quickly.

Twirling excitedly, Snorunt's form blurred, and suddenly a very shell shocked Pidgey was surrounded by at least a dozen Snorunt's.

Tyson grinned. "Powder Snow!"

"Sno sno!" the dozen Snorunt's laughed, all firing the exact same Powder Snow.

"Pidg," Pidgey cawed in fear, not knowing which attack was the real one.

"Dodge it!" George ordered to his confused Pidgey.

"Peeey!" Pidgey screamed as the ice cold attack hit it in the back, causing bits if ice to appear in its feathers. "Gey," Pidgey said weakly.

George's nose crinkled in irritation. "Pidgey, Gust," he barked.

"Py!" Pidgey called, flapping its wings hard and creating a tornado.

"Snoo!" Snorunt called, bringing its ball hands to its face as the tornado sent it flying. "Ruun ru!" Sonrunt muttered, bouncing off the ground.

"Snorunt, fight back with another Powder Snow!" Tyson called.

"Dodge and use Quick Attack," George commanded.

"Py!" Pidgey called, diving out of the way and becoming a blur.

"Double Team," Tyson purred, grinning at Pidgey shocked expression. It just kept falling for the same things. "Powder Snow!" he called to the dozens of Snorunt's.

"Snor!" Snorunt said happily, all of them twirling and launching the attack.

"Pidgey, dodge!" George barked.

"Pi," Pidgey cooed uncertainlym diving out of the way of two attacks, but unfortunately, both were fakes, and the real one hit it right in the face. "Peee....!" Pidgey cried shards of ice covering its beak and making it hard for it to talk.

"It looks like Pidgey is almost done for," Tyson said with a laugh.

"Pidgey, Tackle," George demanded, ignoring Tyson's jibe.

"Pi!" Pidgey called out, slightly muffled and Tackling Snorunt away.

"Sno," Snorunt mumbled, rolling away on its side. "Rut," it said irritably, trying to get its cone shape body up.

"Another Tackle," Goerge ordered.

"Powder Snow, even as you're rolling!" Tyson called desperately.

"Peo!" Pidgey cawed, dive bombing the ice type.

"Snooo!" Snorunt called, mouth open and sending out blasts of Powder Snow, the ground occasionally geting ice patches as she rolled face down.

"Piid!" Pidgey cried in pain, one of the blasts hitting it as it got too close in its attemp tp Tackle it.

"Finish with Bite!" Tyson roared, seeing victory.

"Snoo!" Snorunt called, finally getting control of itself and jumping at the ice covered Pidgey, Biting Down hard on its small body.

"Pee..." Pidgey said weakly, going limp as Snorunt released it.

George recalled his pokemon. "You have won the first round," he affirmed. "Go, Taillow!"

With a burst of white light, a dark colored bird with a red triangle on its head appeared. "Tai!" it cawed.

"Wing Attack!" George bellowed.

Before Tyson could even give out an order, Taillow had already dive bombed Snorunt, slapping it away with its wing and a loud caw of "Taillow!"

"Snoo..." Snorunt grumbled, eyes going shut in a faint.

Woah, that Taillow was much stronger than the one he had face in the forest. "Return, Snorunt," Tyson said, recalling the pokemon with a beam of red light. "Go, Charman... er, meleon!" Tyson finished sloppily.

With a burst of white light, the golden fire lizard appeared. "Char," Charmeleon breathed lowly, fangs flashing with a snarl. "Meon," Charmeleon grunted, taking in Taillow's image. It gave a a disdainful sniff, irritating the bird pokemon.

"Tai!" Taillow cawed in anger, charging at Charmeleon, its wings glowing with its Wing Attack.

"Charmeleon, Scratch!" Tyson ordered.

Charmeleon scoffed, though it flexed its enlarged claws with glee. "Char!" Charmeleon snarled, grabbing the Taillow by its wings with its claws, giving a feral smile. "Char," Charmeleon said with a sneer, smoke already escaping from its nose. "Meleon!" it cried, giving the poor bird a close range Ember attack.

"Taaail!" Taillow screamed in pain, wriggling in Charmeleon's grip painfully.

"Taillow, try and get free!" George called to his pokemon, giving Tyson a disdainful look. "Peck!"

Beak poised, Taillow Pecked at Charmeleon's hands, getting released immediately. "Ta."

"Me!" Charmeleon roared in anger, not giving the bird type enough time to escape. It jumped after Taillow, firing the hot balls of fire right at it. "Char char," Charmeleon laughed as the Taillow screeched out in pain.

"Charmeleon, try a Scratch!" Tyson ordered, a bit wierded out by his pokemon's behavior.

Charmeleon scoffed, turning his back on Tyson.

"What the?!"

George sneered at the younger trainer. "What kind of trainer calls out a pokemon they can't even control."

Tyson glared at the gym leader. "Charmeleon, Smokescreen!"

"Char..." Charmeleon yawned widely, tongue hanging out.

"Taillow," George adressed his horribly burned pokemon, "use Wing Attack."

"Tlo!" Taillow cawed, diving at Charmeleon, wings spread out.

"Char," Charmeleon scoffed, flexing its claws. "Me!" Charmeleon snarled, striking back at Taillow's wings with its claws.

"Taill," Taillow shook, wings recieving more damage from Charmeleon's wings since it had actual nerves while Charmeleon didn't in his nail. "Low," Taillow cawed, flapping desperately to get away.

"Charmeleon, go after it with Ember!" Tyson ordered.

Mouth smoking, Charmeleon opened its sharp toothed muzzle, fire balls escaping from its mout. "Char!" the fire lizard growled, a hint of smirk appearing on its face as the Taillow was hit fromt behind and fell to the ground. "Meleo!" Charmeleon laughed, making sure to give an extra Ember attack to the fallen pokemon.

"That's enough!" George barked, recalling his pokemon. He gave Tyson and Charmeleon a level stare. "You might have won, but until you learn to control that pokemon of your's, you will never truly become a trainer."

Feeling an invisible weight settle in his throat, Tyson wordlessly recalled his pokemon and recieved the badge. What was this? He should have been celebrating! But with Charmeleon's attitude...

Tyson sighed as he entered the pokemon center and gave his pokeballs to Nurse Joy. "Thanks," he muttered.

"Hey, Tyson!" came Andrew's voice. "Did you win the battle?"

Tyson sighed. "Yea, I won, but Charmeleon didn't listen to me."

Andrew gave a soft chuckle. "That's odd, cuz usually its the traded pokemon that don't listen. Did Snorunt do a good job?"

"Yea, she was awsome," Tyson said, a bit more happily. "But Charmeleon... I think he's mad that Heracross is gone..."

Andrew shrugged, though did look slightly apologetic. "People come and go throughout our lives. I'm sure Charmeleon will get over it in time. Just continue your journey and make amends with it. Speaking of which, I need to get going to."

Tyson nodded in understanding. "Good luck, Andrew."

"You too, Tyson."

Waving goodbye, Tyson went back to Nurse Joy for his pokemon, hoping Charmeleon would get better in time. For now, he needed directions on where to go first.

OOC: Does Charmeleon get Dragon Rage as well? I don't remember if it was mentioned when he levelled up past 16.

"My advice would be to head East towards the Mountain Range," Nurse Joy told Tyson, "If you follow Route 2 it will take you right to a rest point at the base of the mountain. The Nurse Joy at the Rest Point will give you directions on how to ascend the mountain..."

Well, that's what she had said an hour ago, but so far he hadn't reached this resting point. With a sigh, Tyson released Charmeleon. When he appeared, the fire lizard turned his back on Tyson.

"Che."

Tyson kneeled down. "Ah, come on, Charmeleon, don't be like that."

"Cha," Charmeleon sniffed, folding his arms.

Rolling his eyes, Tyson sat down and pulled the surprised pokemon into his arms, giving the fire type a hug and ignoring the scratch marks appearing on his arms. "Are you angry that Heracross is gone?"

"Chm," Charmeleon spat, getting out of Tyson's embrace.

Tyson relaxed his chin in his hand. "Are you afraid that I would trade you away?"

Charmeleon said nothing.

Tyson chuckled softly, startling the pokemon. "Charmeleon, you were my first pokemon and best friend. After all that we've gone through, do you really think I'd give you away?"

"Ch..."

"Heracross chose to go with Andrew because of Pinsir," Tyson said. "I would never give away a pokemon unless they wanted it, understand? And I would never ever get rid of you.

"Ch," Charmeleon said softly, head still turned. "Cha," Charmeleon said, eyes looking up as it noticed a pokemon walking down the trail towards them. It looked as if it had just come down from the mountain.

"I know what'll make you happy," Tyson said with a grin. "A pokemon battle!"

Charmeleon allow a small smirk to appear as he faced off against the new pokemon, taking in its snarling fangs and ready body...

As the pokemon got closer, Tyson could make out what it looked like. The pokemon resembled a sheep that had yellow wool, a blue head and blue feet. It's ears and tail had a yellow and black striped pattern, and it had a curly tuft of hair on its head. The pokemon stopped a short distance from Tyson and started eating the grass on the edge of the path...

The pokemon stopped a short distance from Tyson and started eating the grass on the edge of the path...

"Charmeleon, use Ember!" Tyson shouted immediately.

Grinning, Charmeleon opened its smoking mouth, unleashing the attack. "Cha!"

Looking up, the Mareep gave a loud screech of pain and shock as the harsh attack pounded away at its side. "Marreee!" it cried out. "Meep!" Shaking its fur, Mareep charged after the attack had ended, determined Tackle Charmeleon.

"Don't let it paralyze you with its static," Tyson warned. "Ember!"

"Merr!" Mareep bawed, a clear blue shield surrounding it as it paused, feet firmly planted on the ground. "Mep," Mareep said happily as the Ember bounced off the Reflect.

"Char," Charmeleon grunted in irritation.

"Meep!" Mareep called out, using the time to ram Charmeleon away before prancing back happily.

"Charm!" Charmeleon snarled, getting up from the ground. He growled lowly, lip quivering to reveal saliva soaked fangs.

"Charmeleon, use Ember!"

"Cha!" Charmeleon roared, fireing the fire balls. "Che," Charmeleon snorted as the harsh attack hit the Mareep, making it cry out.

"Mrr..." Mareep said softly body shaking with pain. "Meep!" it cried, charging at Charmeleon.

:Char!" Charmeleon grunted, holding out its arms to stop Mareep's Tackle attack. "Charmel," Charmeleon ground out, feet digging into the ground to keep from being pushed back as Mareep pushed heavily against the fire lizard.

"Charmeleon, close up Ember!" Tyson called.

Grinning at a wide eyed Mareep, Charmeleon basically opened its mouth around Mareep;s head and let it out. "Charrr!" Charmeleon snarled, allowing the flames to shoot out at such a close range.

"Mareeeep!" Mareep screamed, jumping back from Charmeleon and rolling around in pain, digging its head into the ground in a way to make the burning stop.

"Char, char, char, char," Charmeleon laughed before his eyes went wide. "Meleon?" Charmeleon question, looking like he was going to puke. He held his muzzle shut, but it looked as if something were trying to get out. "Meleooooon!" Charmeleon screamed at last, opening his giant muzzle.

Tyson's jaw dropped at the sight that happened. A skinny flame shot out of Charmeleon's mouth, but as soon as it hit Mareep, the area around it lit up in red and purple fire, completely knocking out the poor pokemon.

"Maaa!" Mareep had called out in pain, unable to stand such a vicious attack before collapsing.

Shutting his mouth with an audible snap, Tyson review his pokedex.

Dragon Rage: Launches shock waves that always inflicts 40hp. (Dragon type move)

So that it explained it...

"Charrm," Charmeleon said in awe, unable to believe that such a powerful attack had come out of its mouth. Tyson walked up to his pokemon. "Wierd way to discover a new attack."

"Char," Charmeleon scratched his cheek with a single finger, looking just as amused as its trainer.

Turning back to the fallen Mareep, Tyson tossed a pokeball and watched it engulf the pokemon. He needed more pokemon, and if he didn't grow to like this one, there was always trade. With a deep breath, Tyson watched the pokeball shake...

Tyson grinned as the pokeball stopped shaking and lit up with a 'ping', indicating he had captured. "Good job, Charmeleon," he said to the fire type.

"Cha," Charmeleon looked smug, puffing up his chest and letting out a burst of flame.

Tyson rolled his eyes. "Yea, yea... Hey! I think that's it!" he said excitedly, pointing to a wooden cabin a fair distance away. "Come on!"

"Charm!" Charmeleon said, back to being happy with Tyson, though the young trainer was sure it was because the fire type had learned such a powerful attack.

"Come on... Aw, come on!" Tyson cried angrily. He could see the cabin, knowing that directions to the next town lay in there, but some strange looking pokemon popped out of some bushes, looking pissed off and ready to kill.

"Carm," Charmeleon spat, coming in between Tyson and this new pokemon.

Unsure of what it was, Tyson brought out his pokedex...

February 8th, 2009, 12:05 PM
When Tyson had finished scanning the pokemon, he gave the Snubbull a real good look. Grinning, Tyson brought out a pokeball. "Go, Snorunt!"

With a burst of white light, the cone pokemon appeared. "Sno!" she called, giving a little spin.

"Snorunt, Powder Snow!" Tyson ordered.

Laughing, Snorunt opened her mouth and unleashed the icy attack. "Sno!" The harsh snow flakes bashed against Snubbull's body.

"Snuu!" Snubbull cried out, closing her eyes and covering her head with her arms. When the attack had ended and she was left shivering, she opened her eyes and gave an angry bellow. "Snuu!" Snubbull charged at Snorunt, mouth wide open for a Bite attack.

"Snorunt, Double Team," Tyson ordered with ease.

"Sbu!" Snubbull cried in shock as it bit down on Snorunt, only to find out Snorunt had multiplied and the one it had bitten into was nothing but air

"Sno! Sno!" Snorunt laughed, mouth wide. "Run!" Snorunt cried in shock as a much harsher ice attack blew out of its mouth, hitting Snubbull straight on.

"Bull..." Snubbull shivered, trying to brush off some ice on its fur.

"I think you just learned Icy Wind," Tyson said with a grin. "Right, Icy Wind!"

"Sno!" Snorunt said energetically, eager to use its new attack. "Run!" she cried, firing the attack.

"Bull!" Snubbull cried, diving out of the way. She gave a nasty bark as the cool air sent shivers down her spine. Eyeing Snorunt, Snubbull's face suddenly turned very ugly and very scary. "Bulll!" Snubbull cried.

"Sno!" Snorunt cried out in shock, eyes wide and trembling from the Scary Face attack.

"Bull!" Snubbull cried in victory, charging at the ice type for a Tackle attack and bashing the shocked cone away.

"Rut rut rut," Snorunt said pitifully, rolling away because of its cone body.

Tyson couldn't help but give out a chuckle. "Snorunt, get a hold of yourself and use Icy Wind!"

Doing an extra roll, Snorunt jumped to her feet and launched the icy attack, the wind howling slightly from the force.

Snubbull stopped in her tracks from the next Tackle attack, eyes wide as she took the brunt of the attack. "Snub," Snubbull said weakly, legs beginning to shake from not only the cold, but from pain and exhaustion. "Buls," Snubbull growled, charging again at Snorunt, mouth wide open in a Bite attack.

"Fight back with your Bite attack!" Tyson bellowed.

Nodding, Snorunt ran head on with Snubbull, mouth even wider than Snubbulls. "Sno!" Snorunt cried, Biting down on Snubbull's leg.

The puppy pokemon gave a loud bark of pain before clamping down on the top of Snorunt's cone shaped head. "Snub..."

Snorunt moaned, but dared not let go of Snubbull's leg. "Sno..."

"Snorunt," Tyson said with a grin, "Icy Wind!"

Blinking, Snorunt did as she was told, despite having her mouth on Snubbull's foot. "Sno," She grunted, firing away.

"Snuuuub!" Snubbull screamed, releasing Snorunt's head and bouncing away on one foot, the other one completely covered in ice. "Bull! Bull!" Snubbull barked, wavering horribly as the pain began to get to it, nearly at its breaking point.

"Almost there," Tyson breathed. "Snorunt, finish it with Bite!"

"Snor!" Snorunt cried, eager for a little payback from the bite mark appearing on her head. "Run!" Chomping down hard on Snubbull's side, Snorunt didn't let go until Snubbull went down.

"That's it, Snorunt!" Tyson cheered. "Keep it up!"

Off to the side, Charmeleon picked at his horn with a claw, looking bored and believing he could have finished the battle way earlier. "Che..."

"Snub... le..." Snubbull moaned, eyes going shut at last as she stopped putting up a fight.

"Snoo," Snorunt crooned happily, releasing Snubbull and trotting over to Tyson for approval.

"Great job, Snorunt," Tyson said, leaning down to pat Snorunt on the head.

"Sno!" Snorunt said happily, turning to Charmeleon.

"Che," Charmeleon said, folded arms and back turned on the ice type.

"Snoo," Snorunt said slowly, a little sadly.

"Eh, don't mind this grumpy lizard," Tyson said lightly. "He's just pissed cuz he didn't get to battle this one," he continued with a grin.

"Runt," Snorunt said, a little happier as she accepted the praise.

"Alright, return," Tyson said, returning the two pokemon. With a quick eagerness, Tyson got to the cabin, thankful it was only a few minutes walk.

"Hello," a Nurse Joy greeted as soon as he entered the cabin. "Are you here for directions?"

"Yea, and to get my pokemon healed," Tyson said.

Taking his pokeballs, Nurse Joy put them in the machine to get them healed. "Alright then, young man," Nurse Joy said with a smile. "Here are the directions..."

@Wolfwhispers - Nice battle :)

Congratulations Snorunt grew to Level 15

"If you take the cable car outside, it will take you half way up the Mountain," explained Nurse Joy, "Then, by orders of the Gym Leader, you have to climb the last part of the Eastern Ridge yourself. At the top is Highland, its a town and the Gym Leader is quite insistent on 'seperating the strong challengers from the weak'. That's why you have to climb some of the mountain yourself.The Mountain is quite steep and there are many wild pokemon which have settled on the slopes... so be careful."

That's why you have to climb some of the mountain yourself.The Mountain is quite steep and there are many wild pokemon which have settled on the slopes... so be careful."

That had been what Nurse Joy had said quite a while ago, and now Tyson was enjoying the view from the cable car with his pokemon out. Charmeleon was eagerly watching the flying pokemon that flew past the cable car. There was a mixture of bird pokemon, and Charmeleon was watching them all enviously, dreaming of the day he would fly.

Snorunt would run to the front of the cable car and roll down the aisle as the cable rose steeper and steeper at an angle, laughing the whole time in such a childish way.

Mareep was sound asleep by Tyson's side, her head laid upon his side. She snoozed away, only jolting awake when the cable cart came to an abrupt stop.

"Look's like we're here," Tyson said, stretching as he got off the cart and onto the narrow pathway that led up. As he stared, he noticed that some of the path was completely gone, meaning he had to climb and attach himself to the mountain sides. "Return, Snorunt," Tyson said, not doubting that the ice type would most likely fall to her doom.

"Cha," Charmeleon said, already strutting toward the path, Mareep bounding forward like a pro. She had probably grown up on the mountain, knowing very well the dangers and safety of the mountain.

Tyson trudged after them in eagerness, loving the sight that he was met with. The world truly seemed like a much bigger place when he was above it, looking down at it. A few clouds were below him, giving the far off land a slightly hazy look. The sun was high and bright, making it a beautful day, though the mountain air was slightly chilly and he eagerly put on a jacket.

"Mare!" Mareep bawed to Tyson, causing him to jog over to his pokemon and see what it was that alerted them.

"What is that?" Tyson wondered, looking at the pokemon before him.

"What is that?" Tyson wondered, looking at the pokemon before him.

The pokemon looked almost... well human, but smaller. However, the pokemon was predominantly purple in color with a brown bottom and feet. There were white lines on its torso which resembled bandages. These bandages were also on its wrists. It has three spikes on top of his head which resembled a crest.

"Ty," said the pokemon getting into a battle stance, obviously ready for a fight...

Tyson grinned at the pokemon's eagerness as it gestured for him to come at it. "Go on, Mareep," he said to the electric lamb.

Charmeleon scowled at Tyson.

"Mar," Mareep said happily, bounding in front of the pokemon.

"Mareep, Tackle!" Tyson ordered.

"Ma!" Mareep bawed, charging with her head down, determined to prove herself.

"Ty!" Tyrouge smirked, jumping at Mareep and slapping his hands together right on Mareep's muzzle, causing her to flinch. "Rou!" Tyrouge crowed confidently, flipping back.

Tyson grit his teeth at the Fake Out attack. "Mareep, Tackle!" Tyson ordered.

Throwing up her head, Mareep charged. "Mareep!"

"Ty," Tyrouge grinned, charging too, almost like a blur with its fist out.

"Reflect!" Tyson barked.

"Meep," Mareep said softly, a blue shield appearing around her, and just in the nick of time.

"Ty," Tyrouge grit his teeth in irratation as he bounced off the shield, leaving Mareep untouched.

"Meep!" Mareep bellowed, using that chance to strike back, Tackling Tyrouge away.

"Rou!" the fighting type cried, getting bashed back and right into the mountain side. "Roo," it said irritably, wary of its footing near the edge of the mountain path. "Rou!" it bellowed, charging again with its spiked head forward, trying out its own Tackle.

"Meet its Tackle with yours," tyson ordered quickly.

Grunting, Mareep pawed at the ground for a moment before charging at Tyrouge, her head down.

"Mar!"

"Tyr!"

The pokemon each growled out their dislike of each other, both pushing hard against the other ones head. They were eye to eye, neither giving nor letting.

"Come on, Mareep!" Tyson cheered. "You can do it!"

Heartened by her trainer's cheer, Mareep pressed forward, head pulling back just for an instant to bash Tyrouge's head back. "Meep!"

Tyrouge staggered back, clutching his head. "Tyr," Tyrouge grimaced, glaring at Mareep. "Tyrou!" he bellowed, jumping at Mareep, fist closed. "Rou!" With a harsh sound, Tyrouge punched the electric lamb back with its Mach Punch.

"Mareee!" Mareep cried, sliding back on its side.

"Watch out for the side!" Tyson barked, body tensing and gut wrenching.

"Meep," Mareed said, quickly jumping to her feet and jumping off to the side to avoid a probably fatal fall. "Mp," Mareep winced, looking incredibly tired.

Tyson let out a sigh of relief. "Mareep, you ok?"

"Ma... eep!" Mareep cried, getting Tackle by Tyrouge in the middle of a nod. "Mrepp," she growled angrily, bashing her head back and forth. "Meep!" she cried, bashing Tyrouge back.

"Yt!" Tyrouge cried, bouncing back painfully into the cliff side. "Rou..." Tyrouge panted, holding his arm.

"I think its nearly done for," Tyson said aloud.

"Ty!" Tyrouge snapped angrily, running forward, fist out for a Mach Punch. "Tr...!"

That was it! "Tackle!" Tyson cried, seeing Tyrouge's wince.

Mareep, seeing the wince as well, waited until Tyrouge had shut his eyes for an instant in pain. "Meep!" she cried, bounding forward eagerly. Head down, she bashed the fighting type right in the head. "Mreep!"

"Tyrroou!" Tyrouge cried, flying back and landing in a crumbled heap of limbs. "Try... rouge," Tyrouge finished, eyes going shut in defeat.

Mareep stood over the fallen type, panting hard with a look of disbief. "Meep," she said, prodding Tyrouge's unconcious form, as if unable to believe she had actually won.

Again, Charmeleon looked unimpressed. "Che."

"Hush," Tyson admonished the fire lizard. "Great job, Mareep! You won!"

"Meep..." Mareep said, a little dazed. She gave a small sigh, sinking to her stomach.

Tyson looked bemused. "Tired, huh? Well, have a good rest, you really earned it."

"Meep," Mareep sighed in thanks, allowing herself to be returned in a beam of red light.

"Cheee..." Charmeleon hissed, sniffing around in disinterest.

"Oh, don't be like that," Tyson said, playfully cuffing the back of Charmeleon's head. "If your really want, you can battle the next pokemon."

"Chere," Charmeleon said slyly, squinting up at Tyson suspiciously.

"What's with that look?" Tyson asked, affronted. "Look! There's a pokemon right there!" he point to a small dent in the mountain cliff where a pokemon was sitting. "You wanna battle? Go!"

Flexing his claws, Charmeleon jumped in front of the pokemon, letting out a sharp hiss in challenge. "Cherrr."

The pokemon looked down at Charmeleon in amusement before skillfully crawling down the mountain cliff and coming to stand in front of the fire lizard. It let out its own hiss, though still looking amused as it got into a battle pose...

Charmeleon towered over the small pokemon that was challenging him. The small pokemon had a body that looked like it was made of steel. It had a large steel-clad head with pale blue eyes...

"It's an Aron," Tyson noted. "You should have no trouble since you're a fire..."

"Char!" Charmeleon snarled, pounding at Aron's back with a hot Ember attack.

"Ar," Aron grunted, body glowing with its Harden attack to help deal with the pain, but the damage was still massive, being part steel type. "Ar," Aron said simply, turning around and digging its feet into the ground, bringing up a ton of mud.

"Char!" Charmeleon hissed as the Mud Slap pounded against his skin.

"Ember it!" Tyson ordered.

"Cam!" Charmeleon snarled, mouth wide to allow the flames to leave its mouth.

"Ar," Aron grunted in amusement as the Ember attack went right over its head. Grinning, it charged at Charmeleon, bashing the fire lizard right in the gut with its Tackle attack and knocking the air out of him.

"Cha," Charmeleon gasped, moving away and holdin his stomach with one hand and removing the mud in his eyes with the other one.

"Charmeleon, watch out!" Tyson called.

"Cha?" Charmeleon questioned, opening his eyes to see Aron charging again, head lowered. "Char!" Charmeleon roared, jumping over the tiny pokemon easily.

"Ember!" Tyson shouted with Charmeleon still over metal lizard.

"Char!" Charmeleon roared, firing away at the pokemon below it.

"Ar!" Aron cried out in shock, quickly Hardening. Her metal body turned dark, but the flames still landed painfully on her back and made her falter. "Ron!" Aron cried, sending out a blinded Mud Slap.

"Che," Charmeleon scoffed, jumping away from the flung mud. "Meleon," Charmeleon said softly, warily moving in a position to attack once more.

"Arr," Aron growled, digging her feet into the ground and standing off against the larger lizard. If only she were bigger, she could easily stomp this pokemon. "Ron!" Aron cried, charging again, head down.

"Ember!" Tyson barked.

"Char!" Charmeleon called, firing away the hot flame balls.

"Ar!" Aron grunted, jumping to the side but still running straight on.

"Char!" Charmeleon called again, firing another Ember.

"Ar! Ar!" Aron cried each time she jumped and dodged. "Ron!" she got out at last, jamming her head right into Charmeleon's side.

"Cha!" Chrmeleon gasped, getting thrown back. "Melon!" he cried in anger, quickly swiping at Aron's head before he was completely pushed back.

"Aron," Aron chuckled, the Scratch attack barely doing anything to her.

"Normal attacks don't work well against rock and steel pokemon," Tyson warned.

Charmeleon scowled at Tyson. 'You're telling me this now?' he said with his eyes. "Che," Charmeleon scoffed, blowing more flame at the smaller lizard.

"Ron!" Aron called, jumping out of the way mockingly.

"Cha!" Charmeleon roared in anger, stomping his feet. "Me! Me! Me!" Charmeleon snarled with each fire ball coming out of his mouth, This time, though, he launched them everywhere so that when Aron tried to dodge, she would eventually get hit because there was no rythm.

"Aro," Aron grunted, jumping away from one, but because of the chaotic balls, she was quickly hit. "Roor!" Aron cried as the fire burned away at her. "Roo," she said softly before crying out in pain as another bast of Ember's pounded at her.

"Char!" Charmeleon smirked as he fired another round of Ember's, hitting the metal lizard for good this time. It was beginning to look a little burnt in some places. Well, not really burnt... Just looked as if charcoal had been rubbed on its hide.

"Ron," Aron growled, quickly digging into the ground and digging up dirt.

Charmeleon blanched as the Mud Slap pounded away at him, making his body sting as some of the dirt brushed against the core of his tail flame. "Char!" he ground out angrily.

"Hey, Charmeleon," Tyson called. "I say we finish it with your best move! Dragon Rage!"

A reptilian smile appeared on Charmeleon's face as he eyed the worn out metal lizard. Taking a deep breath, Charmeleon unleashed the red and purple beam just as Aron dug up some dirt. "Cha!"

The dragon attack went straight through the weak mud, hitting Aron head on. "Ron"! Aron cried as the draconic flames erupted around it, burning away at its hide. It was a horrible attack that literally zapped away at her health and power, no matter how hard she tried to fight it. "Aro... onnn," Aron said softly, finally collapsing.

"Cha," Charmeleon barked, letting out a small flame in victory.

Tyson brought out a pokeball. "Good job, Charmeleon, but I'll take it from here. Go, Pokeball...!"

The pokeball flew at the small pokemon, hittin her and sucking her inside. The ball dropped to the floor and began to shake left to right a few times. All of a sudden the ball stopped shaking and let out a ding to signify that the capture had been succesful...

"Yea!" Tyson cheered, jumping in the air with excitement.

"Che," Charmeleon said with a shrug, clearly saying it wasn't that hard.

Tyson laughed as he picked up the pokeball and strapped it to his belt carefully. One more added to his team, and it looked like a strong one! "Hey, look over there!" he said eagerly, pointing to a wall on the cliff edge. Strangely enough, the path ended, and there were holes put into the side that obviously meant he had to climb up.

"Char," Charmeleon said, easily jumping and climbing up the slope, his claws making good grips.

A little more carefully, Tyson followed, knowing that he didn't have claws to get a good grip on the side of the mountain, but having climbed all over the volcano back in his home island, Tyson wasn't too nervous.

"Cha," Charmeleon said softly, almost in wonder.

Tyson climbed to the top, or at least the start of the next part of the cliff, and saw what Charmeleon was looking at. There was a rather large grass area that looked as if it had been pushed into the side of the moutain. All around were Mareep and Flaffy grazing about.

Tyson stepped into the small grass meadow, marveling at all of the electric pokemon. "Woah..."

"Meep!" a Mareep snarled suddenly, alerting all of the others.

"Woah!" Tyson called, feeling as if an earthquake was occurring. They all ran around him, forming a tight circle of angry sheep. Two Mareep bounded forward, bodies sparking with electricity. "Go, Snorunt!" Tyson shouted hurriedly, tossing the pokeball with much haste so that the ice type appeared next to Charmeleon.

"Snoo!" Snorunt called happily before blinking at the angry pokemon.

"Char!" Charmeleon spat at Snorunt, telling the go happy pokemon that this was a serious situation. "Mar!" he growled, firing and Ember attack at the two attacking sheep, hitting them both.

"Mere!" the cried out in pain. Glaring, the two fired a Thundershock at the same time, tails touching each other's, almost as if they were powering up the other one.

"Snor!" Snorunt cried, jumping to the side to avoid the attack.

"Char!" Charmeleon cried out, jumping away too slowly. "Meleon!" he roared, startling the pokemon.

"Ember and Icy Wind!" Tyson called to the pokemon.

"Mreep! Mee!" the two Mareep's bawed in anger, again launching at Thundershock.

"Snor!" Snorunt cried, opening its mouth opening to allow the freezing blast of air to head straight at the two pokemon.

"Melo!" Charmeleon cried, eager for revenge in his sadisic way. Mouth opening, the sizzling hot flames circled the icy attack, creating a mixed attack that shocked and surprised the two sheep pokemon into staying absolutely still.

"Snorr!" Snorunt cried out in pain, getting electrocuted by the two Thundershocks. Body shaking horribly, Snorunt hunched over in exhasution, but still in the game.

The two electric pokemon, however, from the force of the combo attack, screamed out in pain as their bodies literally got torn by the heat and icy coldness.

"Mar..." one said.

"Reep..." the other finished, the both of them falling to the ground, unconcious.

The surrounding pokemon bawed angrily, sparks shooting everywhere. These territorial pokemon were crazy!

"Fla!" a Flaffy cried angrily, Tackling Snorunt from behind.

"Runt!" Snorunt cried.

"Meleon!" Charmeleon snarled. Despite not liking the ice type, no one, no one, messes with his team! "Charrr!" Charmeleon roared, firing a large Dragon Rage, the attack hitting head on.

"Flaff!" Flaffy cried in pain, literally flying threw the air and landing in the mix of Mareep and Flaffy.

"Crap, crap," Tyson muttered as the low bawing continued, more coming forward to attack, Snorunt and Charmeleon continuing their attacks. "Go, Aron!" he cried.

With a burst of white light, the metal lizard appeared, looking worn out, but once it took in the sight, it took a battle stance. "Ar!"

"Aron, help them out with Mud Slap!"

"Roorn!" Aron cried, charging forward and digging up dirt as she did so.

"Char!" Charmeleon spat, jumping out the way of the mud attack, a few Mareep taking the place of where he had been. He growled warningly at the smaller pokemon, but Aron ignored it.

"Ron," Aron grunted, squaring off against the angry pokemon.

Tyson moved closer to his pokemon,wondering what had caused all of these pokemon to grow angry at the sight of a trainer.

"Snoo!" Snorunt cried suddenly, getting zapped by a Thundershock attack from a random Mareep. "Sno," Snorunt grunted, falling to the ground.

"Ron!" Aron snarled, Mud Slapping the offending pokemon, knocking it out and coming to cover its teammate.

"Char!" Charmeleon snarled, launching an Ember all around, trying to his as many pokemon as possible.

Aron and Snorunt both grimaced as they got shocked again, only able to defend themselves with more icy attacks and a Mud Slap.

Tyson's fist shook as his pokemon grew wearier and wearier. Grabbing his last pokeball, Tyson threw it, hoping that his Mareep would be able to stop all of these ones, despite being so tired from ealier. "Go!"

With a burst of light, Mareep appeared, still looking weary but healthy enough. "Maree!" it bawed before tilting its head at the sight of the pack.

All at once, the entire pack stopped fighting. It was as if time had stopped for a moment. And then it was over. They ignored Tyson and his other pokemon, all of them surrounding a happy Mareep.

"Mare! Me me prep mepa!" Mareep laughed with delight, nuzzling into an older looking Flaffy.

"Flaff," it crooned, nuzzling with Mareep.

"Uh, Mareep?" Tyson asked with confusion.

"Meep!" Mareep said happily, licking at the Flaffy and gesturing all around.

Tyson and the other pokemon looked around before it finally sunk in. The Mareep and Flaffy here were wary of trainer's because they were afraid of getting catured. Tyson's Mareep had wandered way down the mountain, most likely making the others believe it had been captured, which it had been.

"Meep," Mareep said softly, aware of the other Mareep's and Flaffy's watching. She nuzzled into Tyson's hand, and he easily petted back, smiling down.

"Yea, I know," he said softly, ignoring the waver in his voice.

Despite the fact that Mareep had only been with him for a little bit, he still felt an attachment towards the electric lamb, just like with Heracross.

"Meep!" Mareep said happily, nuzzling Tyson thankfully and going over to to his other pokemon to say goodbye.

"Snoo!" Snorunt was bawling her eyes out and holding Mareep close with her ball hands.

"Che," Charmeleon scoffed, turning away and being his usual self. Really, they barely knew each other!

"Aro," Aron said respectfully, nodding at Mareep in goodbye.

"Meep," Mareep said, nudging Charmeleon's hand.

"Ch... e," he scoffed lightly, face turning sour, though he did give a backwards wave.

Appeased, Mareep bawed at Tyson, tail wagging and mischief glittering in her eyes as she bounded off. She appeared in a minute, carrying with her an oddly colored stone. She dropped it in front of Tyson and gave one last baw. "Meeep!" she cried, running off with her herd.

Tyson watched her go, feeling a little heavy in the gut. Curiously, he picked up the strange rock. It was a green blue. In the middle was a bunch of lines looking like a sun had burst inside of it. He smiled lightly and turned to his pokemon. They all looked exhausted.

"I think we can set up camp and continue tomorrow," he told them.

Graciously, they all collapsed.

The ball shook left to right a few more times, before stopping and letting out a ding to signify that the capture had been successful. Chris walked over to the Pokeball and couldn't help but smile as he picked up the Pokeball. "Our first capture in the Islands, Dile" Chris said to the Totodile next to him as he put the Poochyena on his belt.

"Toto... Dile..." Dile panted, happy that he had won, but absolutely exhausted from both the gym battle and the battle with the Poochyena. The sun was almost set behind them, and an orange tint of Twilight covered the sky. Chris picked up the Totodile and put him on his shoulder. "Come on, Dile. Let's go get some rest."

The two got to the Pokecenter just as the sun had set and darkness had filled the streets. "Hey Nurse Joy." Chris greeted as he walked through the doors of the Pokecenter.

"Hello. How'd the battle with Samantha go?"

"Good, I won." Chris said nonchalantly before suddenly doing a double-take. "You knew?"

She gave Chris a sincere smile "Well, I wouldn't be a very good nurse if I didn't know the leader. Oh! So you caught another Pokemon!?" She asked, noticing the Pokeball on Chris' belt.

"Yeah... A Poochyena I found wandering in the streets. He probably needs a bath..." Chris took the pokeball as well as Dile and gave them to Nurse Joy. She then had a Chansey wheel the Pokemon to the Recovery Center.

"Have you named it yet?" She asked as she punched some numbers into a machine

"What?"

"You know. Give It a name?"

"Oh... No. Umm... I guess something simple, like Thief or Shadow or something."

Nurse Joy stopped what she was doing for a moment and gave Chris a blank stare before rolling her eyes. "Whatever..."

"So, do you have a place I can stay for the night?"

"Yes." She said, throwing Chris a key "And your Pokemon will be out in about twenty minutes."

"Alright, Thanks."

Sure enough about twenty minutes later, both Dile and the newly caught Poochyena were brought out. Dile immediately jumped onto Chris' shoulder, looking as energetic as ever. However, the Poochyena looked rather timid, totally unrelated to what he had been like in the street.

"Hey there Poochyena." Chris said in a calm tone, "I'm Chris, your new trainer." The Poochyena looked up at Chris for a moment, then yipped in happy tone. "Now what to name you..." Chris mumbled to himself as he thought for a name. "How bout Thief?" The Poochyena barked in what Chris assumed was agreement. Content with his decision, the trio began to walk to their room the Nurse rolled her eyes, before continuing her work.
------------
The next morning, Chris immediately got up and quickly packed his stuff back up before running for the front desk with Dile and Thief in tow. Nurse Joy was already up and and working hard.

"Morning, Nurse Joy." Chris greeted. "Thanks for the room and everything, but I got to split. Do you know where the next town is?"

Chris nicknamed Poochyena 'Thief'

"Your best bet would be to head up Route 7 towards the Eastern Ridge," said Nurse Joy, "At the end of Route 7 is a Rest Point. It's quite a rough route, and is home to some Ground and Fighting Type pokemon. When you reach the Rest point, you should get directions from the Nurse Joy there."

"Fighting and Ground Type? No Problem! Anyways... Thanks for everything Nurse Joy." Chris said as he waved goodbye, exiting the Pokemon center with Dile on his shoulder and Thief in tow. As he walked through the streets of Port Began, he couldn't help but wonder how far he was behind the other trainers. Eventually, he passed by the gym. Samantha was standing on the front step, awaiting any challengers. Chris gave her a quick nod as he passed by, then continued on his way out of town.

After leaving the town, Chris headed east in the direction of Route 7. Soon, Chris came upon a rocky area of land, barren like a desert but without the sand. The terrain was flat, but random rocks and potholes lined the route and there was little vegetation True to Nurse Joy's description, the area looked like it was the perfect place for Ground and Fighting Pokemon. Suddenly, as if the world had heard Chris' description, a Pokemon appeared...

A relatively small earth-colored creature creature walked out in front of Chris. The pokemon looked very much like a Hippo, apart from the fact it apparently didn't need any water to survive... judging by the fact it was living way out on this Route. The creature was mostly a sandy colour, with darker colored highlights. It looked up at Chris questioningly...

Tyson, Charmeleon, Snorunt and Aron glared at the flock over their backs as they trudged up the path, all of them pretty much climbing up the ledge itself. The stupid flock wanted them gone as soon as possible, even if they had been impressed that Tyson had raised Mareep up to a level that it could use its electricity. They had managed to sleep all day, cook a little food and eat some of the wild berries for health, but in the end, the paranoid flock shooed them off.

"Che," Charmeleon scowled angrily, claws raking against the side of the mountain.

"Don't take it out on the mountain," Tyson said with a grin and rolled eye.

"Ron," Aron sighed, shaking her head.

"Sno!" Snorunt said happily, oblivious to everything and simply enjoying the sight.

Charmeleon allowed a bit of smoke to escape his nostrils in agitation before his face lit up into a huge, open mouthed smile. "Cham!" he called, pointing to something above them.

Looking up at a rather high cliff that was almost directly above them, Tyson noticed a pokemon. He blinked, wondering what it was, having never seen such an odd looking one before...

A small bird-like pokemon soared past Lucas. The bird had an orange beak that was tipped in black. The bird circled around and squirted Lucas in the face with her water gun.

Wingull
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/b/b3/Spr_3e_278.gif (http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/b/b3/Spr_3e_278.gif)
The seagull Pokemon. It makes its nest on steep sea cliffs. Riding updrafts, it soars to great heights. Catching sea winds with its long wings, it soars as if it were a glider. It folds its wings to rest.

" Wing Gull Wing ". The bird Pokemon cackled. at least she found it funny.

" That, was not in any way funny and just for that, your going down, go Riolu ". Riolu jumped from lucas' side, he was ready to kick some butt.

" Ri Ri Olu ". Riolu looked at Lucas, waiting for commands,

" Okay Riolu use Aura Sphere ". Riolu charged up a ball of aura anf fired it towards Wingull.

" Wing Gull ". Wingull saw the ball approaching and fired a Water Gun, the water met the aura in the middle, the two attacks faded away.

" She's stronger than we thought, so try using Quick Attack ". Riolu ran at quite some pace towards Wingull, leaving a slipstream.

" Ri Olu ".

" Just before you reach her jump and use Force Palm ". As Riolu moved closer he jumped up and a Yellow bulge appeared on his palm, then he smashed it into Wingull which sent her flying to the floor.

" Wing Gull ". She said in pain as she hit the floor.

" Great work Riolu, now use Aura Sphere ". A ball of Aura flew towards Wingull and smashed her in the face.

" Wing Gull ". She recovered from her state and flew back up into the sky.

" Okay Riolu use Quick Attack ". Riolu ran towards Wingull then jumped up and smashed her to the floor.

" Ri Olu ". In said in delight.

" Now use Force Palm ". A yellow bulge appeared on Riolu's hand, he then smashed it straight into WIngull's face almost fainting her in the process.

" Ri Olu ".

" That's right Riolu, time to finish this use Aura Sphere ". A ball of aura was formed by Riolu he then thrusted it towards Wingull, when it connected it knocked her out.

" great work, Riolu now come back ". Riolu ran back and leap to Lucas' side, they then carried on walking until they came across a funny looking Pokemon, Lucas pulled out his Pokedex ready to scan the Pokemon...

"Up for a little battle..." Charmeleon began to move forward. "...Snorunt?" Charmeleon blanched and turned away with a glare.

"Sno!" Snorunt said happily, jumping up and down in excitement.

"Glig!" the scorpion bat called gliding above them before pointing its stinger at SNorunt. "Gligar!" Sharp needle's escaped from its tail, heading straight at the ice type.

"Freeze that Poison Sting with Powder Snow!" Tyson ordered.

"Nor!" Snorunt called, opening her mouth and releasing the cold snowflakes at the Poison Sting.

The snow hit true, freezing the needle's and forcing them to crash to the ground where they broke, now completely useless.

"Gli gli!" Gligar called angrily, charging at Snorunt, its tail poised out in front of it.

"Icy Wind!" Tyson ordered, watching the battle carefully, nervous that they were have a battle so close to the edge.

"Runt!" Snorunt called, mouth widening and releasing the freezing cold blast of air that was much colder and more powerful than its last attack.

"Glig!" Gligar screamed out in pain, flailing about in the air as ice began to cover it wings. "Gli gar!" Gligar snarled, finally making a snapping motion and breaking the ice, though still looking weary.

Tyson frowned in confusion, wondering why that attack seemed so effective against the pokemon. He was pretty sure it was a poison type... "Snorunt, keep it busy with Icy Wind!"

"Sno!" Snorunt called back in understanding and began firing icy air toward the flying scorpion.

"Gli!" Gligar called, dodging each attempt and throwing a Poison Sting back at Snorunt, who dodged just as easily.

"Now, what are you," Tyson wondered, pulling out his pokedex.

Gligar, the ground/flying scorpion pokemon. It sails on the winds with its limbs extended to strike from the sky. It aim for the prey's face.

So that explained it, it was a double weakness! "Snorunt, fire a Powder Snow all around! I want to see it snow!"

"Runt runt!" Snorunt said, bobbing her head. "Ruuun!" Icy snow shot out of her mouth and high above them all, where it soon began to fall above the battle field, making the atmosphere incredibly cold.

"Glig," Gligar growled, body shaking as he tried to keep a flight. "Ligar!" he called at last, dive bombing the ice type, stinger aimed at its face.

"Snorunt, dodge!" Tyson shouted.

"Sno!" Snorunt cried, quickly diving out of the way.

"Glig," Gligar smirked, tail simply turning to point behind it. "Glig!" Sharp needle's shot out, pouding nastily into Snorunt's back.

"Snooo!" Snorunt wailed in pain, little ball hands trying to rub her back.

"Snorunt, pay attention!" Tyson barked as Gligar came back for another round, once more aiming for the face.

"Sno sno!" Snorunt called, running back.

"Snorunt, don't run!" Tyson called in exasperation. "Icy Wind!"

Nodding, Snorunt opened her mouth wide, the icy attack striking even harder than before, what with the effects of the Powder Snow from ealier. It looked as if it were snowing, making the rmperature much cooler.

"Glliiig!" Gligar screamed in pain, crashing to the ground. "Glii," Gligar said lowly, struggling to get up. It looked at its claws and wings, noticing that they were covered in hard ice. "Glig!" Gligar snarled loudly, snapping his limbs about, breaking off most of the ice. "Liga!" Gligar jumped into the air and dive bombed Snorunt, though somewhat wobbily.

"Finish it," Tyson said, grinning. "Icy Wind!"

"Snor!" The icy attack blasted its way toward Gligar, but the scorpion pokemon just smirked.

"Glig!" it called out, beginning to spin crazily, though still dive bombing the ice type. The Icy Wind completely covered Gligar, turning it into a giant ice block, but as the pokemon had been spinning, a giant ice block was now spinning toward Snorunt.

"Snorunt!" Tyson shouted.

"Snoor!" Snorunt cried, the ice scorpion hitting head on and sending her flying. "Sno! Sno!" she bounced across the ground, flailing wildly as she headed toward the edge.

Tyson blanched. "Snorunt, return!" The red beam of light caught the cone pokemon just before she reached the edge, much to his relief, though it did irritate him a little that Charmeleon and Aron didn't seem to care.

"Gligg..." Gligar said weakly, now free from the giant ice block, thanks to the collision. His body still had bits of ice shards on him, which slowly sapped his strength because of his type. "Glig!" Gligar snarled, firing one last Poison Sting towards Charmeleon.

"Cha!" Charmeleon cried, arms getting hit with the attack. Sneering down at the panting pokemon, though Tyson could see a little respect in the fire lizard's eyes, and opened his mouth wide. "Charm!"

Red hot Ember's escaped his mouth, pounding mercilessly into the exhausted Gligar.

"Glig," Gligar said with a small grin, the ice around its body melting away at last. "Ger..." Gligar slumped to the ground, too weak to get back up, though still with that silly grin on its face.

"Thanks, Charmeleon," Tyson said, bringing out a pokeball. A clever mind like that one didn't deserve to be let go. He would have this one. "Go, pokeball!"

"Yes!" Tyson crowed, picking up the pokeball. "Another one for the team, eh?"

"Che," Charmeleon said with a shrug.

Tyson rolled his eyes. "Yea, whatever." He strapped the pokeball to his belt and looked up the path, noticing it was pretty much gone. "Look's like we climb from here. Aron, will you be ok, or do you wantto go back in the pokeball?"

"Ar," Aron said negatively, beginning to climb up the slopes skillfully.

"Cha." Charmeleon easily climbed up the slope, his claws digging into the side.

Dutifully, Tyson followed after, a bit slower than them. However, the area they were climbing wasn't too steep or slanted, making Tyson feel better. They climbed for a good hour before come to a rest once they were able to find a new trail that just started randomly. It seemed as if the mountain was full of little rest stops.

"What a view," Tyson said, wiping some sweat off his brow as he looked down the mountain.

"Chrr," Charmeleon said a little woefully, looking at the clouds.

Tyson felt a bit guilty, knowing how much the fire lizard wanted to evolve. Well, he would just need to find some more experience! Looking around, Tyson grinned as he noticed a pokemon slinking about in the distance, near the end of the trail. It was a...

"Let's do this, Charmeleon!" Tyson said excitedly. "Ember!"

"Cha!" Charmeleon barked eagerly, muzzle wide open and releasing the burning hot fire balls.

"Geo," Geodude said loudly, curling his arms around his body in Defense Curl, taking the attack. "Dude," it said mockingly, lifting a rocky brow at a pissed Charmeleon and smiling widely at Aron.

"Ron," Aron sighed, looking unimpressed.

"Charm!" Charmeleon said angrily, tail swishing back and forth in anger as his attack. "Meo!" Charmeleon snarled, mouth open once more to allow a much stronger Ember attack.

"Geo," Geodude winced, closing his eyes. Irritably, Geodude began picking up rocks and chucking them at Charmeleon in its Rock Throw attack.

"Dodge them!" Tyson called to his pokemon.

"Char! Char! Char!" Charmeleon called each time he dodged a sharp rock.

"Ember!"

"Charmelo!" Charmeleon roared, firing away.

"Geo!" Geodude bellowed, throwing more rocks at the same time.

"Char!" Charmeleon cried out, body soon covered in rocks. "Meleon," he said weakly.

"Geo," Geodude grunted, covering his head until the harsh attack was finished. He breathed out a sigh of relief and hopped over to Aron. "Geo," it said slyly, grinning cockily and flexing its arms.

"Ar," Aron said with a dismissive sniff.

"Geo," Geodude tried again, practically flexing his arms in her face.

"Aron!" Aron finally snarled, turning around and kicking up dirt.

"Geo!" Geodude cried out in pain from the Mud Slap, jumping back a bit in an anger. "Dude," it said nastily at Aron before feeling a tap on its back. "Geo?" Geodude turned around and blanched.

"Charr," Charmeleon said lowly, looking dangerous as he cracked his knuckles and stood in the shadows, making his face appear dark and his eyes glow sinisterly. "Meleon..."

"Geoo," Geodude said quickly, holding up his arms and backing up, smiling innoccently but instead backed into Aron.

"Aro!" Aron snarled, kicking up another Mud Slap, covering Geodude.

"Geod!" Geodude cried, randomly throwing rocks in desperation.

"Melo!" Charmeleon launched another Ember, hitting its mark.

Tyson just shook his head and sat down, watching the show. Honestly, his pokemon were like little kids! "Oi, just finish it already!" he called to the two as they beat up on the Geodude, the one that had gotten beat earlier lounging by Tyson and enjoying the show with him.

"Aro," Aron began.

"Melon!" Charmeleon finished as they launched their attacks at a scared Geodude.

A messy Mud Slap and powerful Dragon Rage surrounded the poor rock type, bringing up messy mud and draconic fire that tore at the Geodude's hide.

"Geo!" Geodude cried in pain, going limp and out.

"Ro," Aron sniffed, making sure to walk over the fallen pokemon before jerking her head at Tyson to get him going.

"Really, you'd think they would want a rest," he told the Geodude by his feet.

"Geod," the Geodude said with a shrug, making sure to grab his fallen fellow and drag him away from them.

"Char!" Charmeleon called to Tyson, pointing up ahead and stamping his feet impatiently.

"What is i... Ah, the next town!" Tyson exclaimed happily, unable to believe he had made it all the way to the top.

He looked around before blinking in shock. This was no town, it was a single pokemon center! Sighing, and thinking it was a resting point, Tyson entered the pokemon center and was greeted by Nurse Joy.

"Ah, we finally have our next challlenger!" she said in excitement.

"Chall... wait, so this is actually the next place to get a badge?" Tyson asked.

"You bet!" a new voice said jubilantly. A man of at least twenty-five years with brown hair and whitish blue eyes came out from the back of the pokemon center. "No a lot of folks want to live up here, what with the harsh wind, and so only the pokemon center, Nurse Joy here and myself stay here to challenge trainers. A trainer needs to prove himself worthy against the elements if he wishes to gain an honorable bade! Do you agree?" he barked.

"Yes, sir!" Tyson stood at attention, going stiff as the very large man, and very muscular, stood before him.

The gym leader grinned and patted him on the head. "Good. Heal your pokemon and rest for the night. We'll battle in the morning, does that sound good?"

"Yes..."

"Jason," the gym leader said. "Now go, and rest."

Tyson could only nod as the large man walked away, wondering what sort of pokemon a man like that used, especially in an area such as this.

"Sweet!" Chris exclaimed as the Pokemon crawled out of the ground, "A Hippopotas!"

Theif jumped next to Chris, growling at the small hippo-like Pokemon. "Hold on there, Thief." Chris said, kneeling down and putting his hand in front of the Poochyena to stop him from charging, "Let Dile take this one. He has an advantage and it will give you a chance to learn about our tactics and moves."

Theif scoffed at Dile, turning it's head and looking away. "*sigh*... You're going to be a handful, aren't you... Anyways, Dile Go!"

Dile jumped in front of the Hippopotas, ready and poised for battle. However, the Hippopotas seemed rather uninterested, and yawned lazily. Theif rolled around on the ground, barking with laugher at the sight. Until both Chris and Dile shot him an annoyed look. Whining, Thief put his head down in shame before he resumed watching the battle.

"Ok, Dile use Water Gun!"

Dile took a deep breath, before shooting a blast of water at his opponent. The Hippopotas looked up at Dile, just in time to be hit in the face with the super-effective water attack. It was forced back a few feet, leaving skid marks on the ground. Suddenly, the fire and willingness to battle flared up in the Hippopotas, and it hastily lunged at Dile with a Tackle attack. Stunned by the Hippopotas’ change in mood and it’s sudden speed and agility, Dile was hit with the attack, sending him skidding back into a rock.

“Don’t take that, Dile! Use Water Gun again!”

Dile took another deep breath and shot another huge blast of water at the Hippopotas, again hitting the Pokemon square in the head. Shaking off the pain, the Hippopotas one again summoned it’s anger and charged at Dile. Theif watched intently at this Hippopotas willing and anger to fight and Dile’s countermoves, taking note of everything. Much better than his previous attitude.

“Dile, jump left!” Chris yelled. At the last possible moment before the attack hit, Dile jumped left of the oncoming Hippopotas. However, the momentum continued to carry the Hippopotas forwards.

“Finish this with another Water Gun!” Chris barked as Dile took one last deep breath, and shot a tsunami of water at the Hippopotas, sending it flying into a nearby rock. It attempted to get up one more time, but then fell down, defeated.
“Good Job Dile!” Chris complimented, petting the small crocodile Pokemon on the head as the defeated and sulking Hippopotas scurried away. Suddenly, Thief began barking rapidly, just as another Pokemon appeared.

“Ok Thief, You can take this one!” Chris said as Dile climbed onto his shoulder. Thief stood, poised for battle as the Pokemon revealed itself to the group…

The ruffian Pokemon. It's the pre-evolved form of Crawdaunt. Its hardy vitality enables it to adapt to any environment. Its pincers will never release prey.

" Okay Riolu, it's time to battle ". Lucas looked down at his loyal partner.

" Ri Olu ". Riolu jumped fowards ready to battle.

" Corp Hish ". Before Lucas could mutter any commands Corphish fired a Buble attack, all the bubbles connected, sending Riolu to the floor.

" Wow, he's tougher than we thought, maybe we should capture him, what do you think Riolu ".

" Ri Ri Olu ". Riolu said, as if to say yes I need a friend.

" Well, we've got to weaken him first, so use Quick Attack ".

" Ri Olu ". Riolu ran towards Corphish, ready to smash him to the floor.

" Corp Hish Corp ". Corphish moved to one side, leaving Riolu to smash into a nearby rock.

" Yup, he's definetly quite strong, so Riolu use Aura Sphere ".

" Ri Olu ". Riolu summoned up a ball of aura and thrusted the ball straight towards Corphish.

" Corp Hish ". Corphish then turned a bright silver colour and the sphere just smashed on Corhish's hardened body, leaving no effect, then Corphish used Bubble and sent multiple bubbles flying towards Riolu.

" Riolu let them hit you then use Counter ". Lucas commanded.

" Ri Oluuu ". He winced in pain as all the bubbles hit him but then he turned a brownish colour and ran up to Corphish, before Corphish had time to react Riolu was punching and kicking him in frustration, then when the colour faded Riolu walked back to Lucas' side.

" Corp Hish ". Corphish was led on the floor in pain, until he regained his mind and pulled himself back to his feet, he was once again ready for battle.

" Riolu, use Aura Sphere ".

" Ri Ri Olu ". Riolu made a sphere of aura then pushed it towards Corphish.

" Corp Hish Corp ". Corphish fired a Bubble attack at the sphere, then when the two attacks met in the middle they both faded away leaving both Pokemon unharmed, Corphish stared at sky, wondering where the moves had gone.

" Now, while he's distracted use Force Palm ".

" Rio Lu ". A yellow buldge appeared on Riolu's palm, he then smashed it straight into Corphish's face.

" Corp Hish ". He fell to the floor, only just surviving.

" Okay, time to finish this, Riolu use Aura Sphere ".

" Rio Lu ". Riolu was standing over Corphish's battered body then he released a ball of aura, immediatly fainting the crab like Pokemon.

" Well, I guess it's time for this, go Pokeball ". Lucas took out a shiny Pokeball and threw it towards Corphish, with a flash Corphish was engulfed by the pokeball, it shook once, twice...

Today was the day of Tyson's next pokemon gym battle, and he had already had a pep talk with all of his pokemon before he even came outside, which was where he was right now, staring off against Jason. He had been told by the nurse what sort of pokemon Jason used, and it seemed he had no choice but to use his new pokemon, even though it had no training, but if his planned worked, everything would be alright.

"Ready?" Jason called over the roar of the wind.

"Ready!" Tyson yelled back.

"Arlight! Two on two, no time limit! Begin!"

"Go, Gligar!" Tyson yelled.

With a burst of white light, the scorpion pokemon appeared. "Glli!" it called happily, immediately flying high into the air, stinger poised, just like they had planned.

"Go, Machop!" Jason shouted, tossing his own pokeball.

With a burst of white light, a humonoid pokemon appeared with a small tail. "Moco!" it called, flexing a bit.

"Gligar, Poison Sting!"

"Glig!" Gligar called, though Tyson could barely hear over the wind. Pointing his stinger, he fired away.

"Machop, dodge!" Jason barked.

"Mop!" Machop called, running and swerving.

Tyson grinned. "Follow it!" he ordered.

The scorpion pokemon nodded and simply allowed its tail to follow Machop's movements. Being so high up in the air, it was easy to follow the fighting type's stance and eventually hit the poor pokemon.

"Machoop!" Machop cried out, cringing as he held his stomach and let out a hacking cough.

"Excellent plan!" Jason laughed. "Poisoning my pokemon right in the beginning! Machop, we'll show them! Seismic Toss!"

"Chop chop!" Machop cried, jumping into the air, arms open to snatch the flying scorpion.

"Dodge!" Tyson cried.

Laughing, Gligar used the fast moving wind to easily shoot out of the way, right before Machop closed its hands on open air where it had been just mere seconds before. "Gligar!"

"Ma," Machop winced, landing with a grunt on the ground. Its body shook as the poison took effect.

"Poison Sting!"

"Gli! Gli!" Tail poised, the thin needles shot out and struck the fighting type.

"Machop, Focus Energy!" Jason ordered.

"Poison Sting!"

Machop gave a grunt as he glowed a light yellow, looking prepared for anything, but then the poison took effect, sapping its health, followed by the sharp Poison Sting attack. "Maaaac!" Machop cried in pain.

"Karate Chop!" Jason ordered to his weak pokemon.

"Chop," Machop said, nodding before jumping into the air.

"Fly higher," Tyson ordered simply, though with enough force so his pokemon could hear him.

"Lger!" Gligar said happily, stretching his wings wider so that the wind caught him and immediately pushed him up, far away from Machop's grasp.

Jason gritted his teeth as he saw his pokemon fall to the ground, unable to stay on its feet as the poison took away more life and Gligar shot another Poison Sting. He sighed.

"An interesting battle plan; one that I should have been expecting." He watched Tyson order one last Poison Sting before his pokemon finally fainted. "Good job, Machop," he told his fallen pokemon. "Return."

"Maa," Machop said weakly before being recalled.

"And now for my strongest. Go, Hitmonchan!"

With a burst of white light, a humonoid pokemon with boxing gloves appeared. "Hitmo! it cried.
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/e/ee/Spr_3e_107.gif (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Spr_3e_107.gif)

"Bullet Punch!" Jason barked quickly.

"Dodge!" Tyson cried.

"Hitmo!" Hitmochan cried out, fists becoming a steel color and shooting a steel colored ring out of its glove so quickly that Gligar didn't even see it coming.

"Gliiig!" Gligar cried out, falling to the ground in pain.

Blanching, Tyson quickly recalled his pokemon before it fell to the ground. "Return!" The beam of red light hit the pokemon, sucking it inside the pokeball where it was safe. "Good job," he told the pokeball. "And now for my strongest," Tyson said with a grin that matched Jason's. "Go, Charmeleon!"

With a burst of white light, the gold colored pokemon appeared. "Char!" it cried, letting out a bit of flame out of its mouth.

"Hitmochan, Mach Punch!"

"Charmeleon, Ember!"

"Chan han!" Hitmochan cried, becoming a quick blur as it dodged the flying balls of fire. "Chan," it smirked, digging its gloved fist into Charmeleon.

"Cha!" Charmeleon gasped, the air getting knocking out of him. Thankfully, from the force against his stomach, the last of his Ember attack came spurting out of his mouth.

"Chhhaan!" Hitmochan cried, jumping back and beating his little skirt, where he had been lit on fire. "Can," the fighting type grimaced, shifting carefully.

Jason watched his pokemon, making sure it was ok before barking out his next order. "Pursuit!"

"Chan," Hitmochan nodded.

"Ember!" Jason barked.

"Charmeoo!" Charmeleon roared, opening his mouth and attacking before the fighting type even move. "Meee!" the fire lizard continued to scream as the last of the fire balls was released from his muzzle.

"Chan," Hitmochan grimaced, taking the attack before disappearing from view when it had finally stopped.

"Char?" Charmeleon looked around suspiciously before letting out a pain cry as the fighting type appeared from behind and punched it in the back.

"Charmeleon, are you ok?" Tyson yelled over the wind.

"Caa," Charmeleon said, nodding heatedly as he glared at the fighting type.

"Good. Now Ember!"

"Char!" Charmeleon cried out, muzzle wide and the fire attack spewing towards Hitmochan.

"Dodge and use Mach Punch," Jason ordered.

"Cho!" Hitmochan called, leaping to the side with a mocking smirk at the angry fire lizard before becoming a fast moving blur.

"Quick, Dragon Rage!" Tyson screamed at his pokemon.

"Chan!" Hitmochan snarled, pouding heavily into Charmeleon's back with its gloved fists.

"Cha ch ah!" Charmeleon cried out in pain as he keeled over, the Dragon Rage just barely managing to escape his muzzle.

"Chan!" Hitmochan cried as the draconic beam struck true in its chest, blasting it backwards and enveloping it in the dark fire.

"Alright!" Tyson cried, thinking he had won.

Jason smirked at him. "Really think its over, do you? Hitmochan, Revenge!"

The fighting type, which had been lying on the ground looking horribly burned and exhausted, suddenly jumped up, eyes burning angrily and its gloves colored in a purple fire. "Hitmmooo!" it cried, startling Charmeleon backwards.

"Dodge! Ember! Anything!" Tyson roared so quickly that he was sure he jumbled up his words.

"Chaaar!" Charmeleon cried out, the purple flaming fists sending it reeling backwards. "Me me me," the fire lizard coughed with each bounce on the ground. When Charmeleon had finally stopped slidinng across the ground, it opened one enraged eye so that it could stare at the panting Hitmochan. "Me," Charmeleon breathed out, firing one last Ember attack before closing his eyes in defeat.

"Charmeleon!" Tyson cried out, running over to his pokemon and ignoring the way Hitmochan was on his knees, thanls to that last attack. "Charmeleon!" he cried again, placing his hand softly on the fire lizard in worry.

Charmeleon had always been so strong, had always done his best and always done his best. In fact, the fire lizard had never lost before. It was a huge blow to Tyson, and he realized it would be an even bigger blow to the fire lizard once he woke up an realized.

"I think it would be best if you recalled your pokemon and continued our battle," Jason said suddenly, startling Tyson.

"Continue?"

Jason allowed a thin smile to appear on his face. "Your first pokemon, Gligar, can still battle."

Tyson swalled thickly. With a heavy heart, he recalled Charmeleon and released Gligar. "Go!" he called.

With a burst of white light, the flying scorpion appeared with a happy laugh. "Gligar!" it cried, looking down at an exhausted Hitmochan. It was standing on shaking feet and was holding its side.

"Bullet Punch!" Jason cried quickly, not giving Tyson time to gain his groundings.

"Po... Poison Sting!" he cried out falteringly.

"Gliga!" Gligar yelled, launching the sharp needles at Hitmochan right before it was hit with the hard force. "Glig!" it cried out, falling quite a few feet from the sky. "Gli gli," it panted, flapping his arms to gain his balance.

Hitmochan, on the other hand, cried out as loudly as he could when the Poison Sting bashed against his chest. From all the other attacks, as well as that monstrous Dragon Rage, it was done for. "Chaan..." it said softly, falling to the ground in defeat.

"Gli! Gligar gil!" Gligar cried happily, amazed that it had won against such tough opponents. With glee, it landed next to Tyson.

Tyson was staring at the pokemon in shock. One attack. One more attack was all that was needed, and Charmeleon would have won...

Jason walked over to Tyson with a rowdy laugh after he recalled his pokemon. Banging Tyson on the back, the large gym leader gave another loud laugh. "Don't look so down! You just won!" Tyson said nothing, feeling some type of heaviness settle around him. Jason leaned down. "Listen, kid," he said seriously. "Everyone has a pokemon who's a favorite, and they're all bound to lose sometime. It helps, you know, losing every once in a while. It helps you grow stronger, and right now you do have a pokemon that won, and its feeling horribly left out and unloved.

With a start, Tyson turned to Gligar that was looking horribly depressed. "Gli," it said softly, not knowing what was wrong. It had won, right.

"Oh!" Tyson cried with a grimace. "I'm so sorry, Gligar," he told his pokemon, giving him a congragulatory hug. "You were absolutely amazing out there," he told the beaming pokemon. "I guess I was just a little worried about Charmeleon..."

"Gligar! Gli lig arr garli gligar!" Gligar said quickly, snapping his pincers in understanding and happiness.

"Good," Jason said nodding as he and Tyson stood up straight once more. "In commemeration of your win, I give to you this badge."

With wide eyes, Tyson took his third gym badge. "Thank you," he said quietly, unable to believe how far he had gotten.

"Now let's go get us some grubb! Nurse Joy always makes a huge meal after a trainer challenges me! And after, we can give you directions to your next destination. I'm sure you're eager to move on for the next badge."

"Yes, sir," Tyson said energetically as Gligar settled onto his shoulder happily.

Together, they walked back to the pokemon center, Tyson still worrying about how Charmeleon will react over a loss...

@Wolfwhispers - Nice post. Wow, Tyson took Charmeleons loss pretty hard... still, epic battle :)

Congratulations Gligar grew to Level 11 and learned Harden
Congratulations Charmeleon grew to Level 22 (deserves something after a battle like that!)

Congratulations Tyson won a Mountain Badge

"From her, the best idea would be for you to go to the Deep Cave," Nurse Joy told Tyson, "As the name suggests its an underground cave filled with wild pokemon. Unfortunately its the only way to reach the other half of the Island from here. Since you beat Jason I'm sure you will be fine!" she said encouragingly.

The Gym Leader nodded in agreement before giving Tyson directions, "You'll be fine kid, trust me! Just head down the North side of the Mountain and you'll reach the entrance to the Deep Cave at the bottom. Don't worry you'll see it from a mile off! Head through the cave, and there is a Rest Point at the entrance on the other side. You can get directions to other Gyms from there!"

Head through the cave, and there is a Rest Point at the entrance on the other side. You can get directions to other Gyms from there!"

The enthusiasm coming off the two had been great, but as soon as Tyson's pokemon had been healed and he had eventually found the cave, (which took at least two hours of mindless walking) he had to let Charmeleon out to light up the darkenes cave. Suffice to say the pokemon was one angry little pokemon.

"Oh, come on, Charmeleon," Tyson tried, walking carefull along the wet cave ground. It had a damp, mossy type smell to it. "You were awsome! So what if you lost. Everyone loses. What, do you expect to go undefeated fo eternity?"

Charmeleon gave him a look that clearly said that's what he though. "Che," Charmeleon spat, a slither of a flame shooting out. A voice somewhere in the distance gave a squeak. Charmeleon was on it immediately. "Char!" Charmeleon roared, charging at whatever it was.

"For the love of..." Shaking his head, Tyson ran off after the fire lizard, feeling a bit envious that the pokemon could easily run around the damp floor without slipping because of the claws it had on its feet.

"Meloen!" Charmeleon roared, firing an Ember attack of to Tyson's side.

Turning swiftly, he saw the pokemon dodge the attack and give a loud snarl in return. He quickly brought out his pokedex to see what it was...

Character Name: Jand Harona
Gender: Female
Age: 14
Appearance: Jand has white (White from birth, not from age) long hair that falls down a little past her shoulders. Her eyes are light blue and glimmer in the sunlight. She is very pale without any tan at all. All of her facial features are normal for her type of age, also. She stands at 5'6''. She is skinny, but not so skinny you can see her ribcage. Her feet are also normal for her age. She has muscle, but not alot. She also looks very fragile, in a way. She usually wears blue dresses or skirts made out of silk, because her family is wealthy. She sometimes wears her hair in braids. She hardly ever wears T-shirts, except when it is very hot outside. She has a white backpack made out of leather.
Personality: Jand is a very calm person, and very shy. She believes in all things good, and treating people fairly and politely with respect. She never gets angry or raises her voice, and talks in a small quiet voice. She is a great leader, but doesn't like to lead. She will help out anyone in need, but not for selfish reasons. She is very obedient and will do things under harsh conditions, as long as it's for the good of others. She will not join the gossip or drama of other people, even if it's for a good reason. She believes that is their business.
History: Jand was raised in Blackthorn City, located in the Johto Region. Her dad was an elder member of the Dragon Den, a powerful group of dragon trainers and masters. Her family were the wealthiest in the town, even richer then the Gym Leader and the Chief Elder of the Dragon Den. She loved to play with his Dratini, so much that her father gave his Dratini to her. Many people in her village and in the Dragon Den realized that Jand had something special with Pokemon...Two years later, when Jand was twelve, her mother got lost on the Ice Path and never found her way back. They found her three weeks later, frozen to death. After that, Jand became more quiet and calm. Her Dratini noticed this, and even though they still had great times together, Dratini was sad that Jand became more calm and quiet. Jand didn't decide to go to Orava Islands, her father decided for her. But Jand wasn't the type of person to say no to other's request-so she went.
Preffered Starter: Dratini, Female
How Obtained: Jand's father obtained Dratini when it was in the lake behind the Pokemon Gym. It was very cold and shivering, so her father wrapped her in a towel and took her home. Jand's mother was ok by the Dratini staying in the house, when she saw how much Jand would love her. Dratini had a terrible illness, and they had to have Nurse Joy come to their house to treat her. It turned out she had got her illness from being too cold out in the lake, but soon she recovered and turned into a joyful, fun loving Dratini. Jand recieved Dratini from her father at age 8, five years after they got Dratini, when her father noticed that Dratini was strong and how well Jand bonded with her. Jand was very happy about this, and still remains faithful like she always has to her Dratini.
Group: North-East

Jand headed towards Bebay Lakes. Her movements were quiet, quick, and graceful. Her Dratini was floating on her right side, smelling the fresh air of the tropical-like island. They weren't used to being around green, fresh trees all the time. The only time she had really seen a tree besides an Evergreen, was when her father and she had the high honor of attending the Johto Pokemon League Championship Battle. She almost cried as she thought of the snow covered city she grew up in. "Think of what's happening now...", She told herself. Her Dratini kept straying away from her to smell the Palm Trees and fresh, warm, air. She actually picked the lakes because of Dratini-Dratini loved water. Although Dratini was a tough pokemon, she was actually the small one back home. She was only 7'8'' long, and that was very small compared to the other Dratini and Dragonairs. Jand tried to teach Dratini that her size didn't matter, but Dratini always got gloomy when she was around the other Dragon-type Pokemon. As she walked by, she heard the sound of boy's laughter. She saw in a small clearing two boys trying to harm a Wurmple...The Wurmple had a scared look on it's face while the boys tried to poke it with a stick. "Try not to interfere," She told herself. She didn't feel like getting into a fight on her first day here...But Dratini had already gone over there and hit the two boys with her tail. The boys ran off, spooked. "Dratini...Don't do things like that, please." She said quietly. The Wurmple then fled quickly, vanishing into the bushes. Then Jand and Dratini continued their walk, and stopping every often so Jand could splash some water on Dratini. Jand did it playfully and for a reason, because without water, Dratini could faint easily. Dratini swung her head over to some nearby palm trees, and behind a palm tree came a...

"Meleon!" Charmeleon roared, banging his fists against his chest like a mad man. "Chaa!" With that finaly roar, Charmeleon unleashed a massive Ember attack that actually lit up the whole level they were on in the cave.

"Maw!" Mawile snarled, the large mouth on its head immediately grasping a large rock and swerving around. The Ember hit the rock mostly, but a few spare balls didn't hit the rock and instead hit the back of Mawile's head.

"Cha!" Charmeleon roared, charging forward, tail swinging crazily and sending lithes of flame everywhere, with his claws extended, Charmeleon struck.

"Yea, yea," Tyson yawned, already used to his pokemon's behavior. He had been like this back on the island, back when he was still just a hatchling and wrestling with the other chars. "Charmeleon, maybe a few more Embers instead of Scratch? You know, something effective against a steel type pokemon?"

"Char! Char! Char!" Charmeleon snarled, viciously slashing his claws at Mawile's body.

"Maw!" Mawile finally snarled, knocking the mad pokemon back with an Astonish.

"Che," Charmeleon winced, giving Mawile time for another Astonish attack.

"Meleon!" Charmeleon roared, opening his muzzle wide and pelting the up close pokemon with a large dose of burning hot Embers.

"Wile!" the steel type cried, looking at Charmeleon imploringly, giving him a large, teary eyed look.

"Che," Charmeleon scoffed, unaffected by the Fake Tears attack. "Me!" With a swipe of his claws, Charmeleon sent the steel type reeling.

Tyson made himself comfortable as he sat on a rock. He released all of his pokemon. When they all appeared, they all gave him questioning looks as Charmeleon battled in the background.

"Charmeleon's having a little fit and I could use some better company right now," Tyson told them.

"Snoo," Snorunt crooned, patting Tyson comfortingly on the arm and giving Charmeleon a sad look.

"Ar," Aron scoffed, shaking her head. She was completely annoyed with this babied pokemon. Ignoring the high pitched scream the Mawile gave off when Charmeleon Ember'd her open mouth, Aron began to forage around for something interesting.

"Gliga!" Gligar said energetically lifting a claw and rooting for Charmeleon.

"Chl." Charmeleon looked up, distracted from the fight by the sound of Gligar's voice. It gave the poison type a dark look, but that was enough time for Mawile to strike.

"Gli," Gligar muttered, bringing a claw up to his mouth, wincing as Charmeleon was bashed right in the face by Mawile's giant mouth.

"Ooh, that had to hurt," Tyson said with a laugh. "Come on, Charmeleon! Put some more effort into it and stop angsting over some stinkin' loss!"

"Meeel!" Charmeleon roared, stamping his feet angrily and spewing flame everywhere. Snarling at Tyson, Charmeleon turned back to a horribly burned Mawile. He opened his golden muzzle, knowing he would enjoy this. "Char!" Burning hot draconic fire escaped from his mouth, hitting the steel type pokemon head on.

"Maaaaa!" Mawile screamed, shaking and rolling around on the ground in pain as its steel body was becoming charred.

"Meeee," Charmeleon breathed out slowly, letting his deep voice turn into a growl. Tail slamming against the ground, he gave one disdainful look at the defeated pokemon and ran off, deeper into the cave and ignoring Tyson's calls.

"Charmeleon!" Tyson barked. "Charmeleon! Get back here!"

All he heard was a distant, "Cr le!" which stood for "Piss off!"

"Son of a... Damn, stubborn lizard," Tyson growled, already running after his pokemon. "Come on everybody!" he barked at his pokemon before coming to an abrupt stop. "Not now," he said with a sigh, eyeing the large pokemon that was blocking his path.

It growled lowly and dug at the ground before giving a loud bellow. It clearly wanted to battle...

All of a sudden the ball stopped shaking and let out a ding to signify that the capture had been successful; Lucas then proceeded to pick up Corphish's Pokeball.

He held it up and announced "Yes, I captured a Corphish!" Riolu then jumped up onto his shoulder. Attempting to get himself some attention. But Lucas was too focused on the Pokeball that lay in front of him; after all it was his first capture since he had obtained Riolu and most importantly since he had entered the Orava Islands.

Jand turned around and noticed the creature, which now jumped out from behind the tree it had been hiding behind..."Dratini, watch out!" Exclaimed Jand as the Buizel jumped towards Dratini. Dratini dodged the attack, and Buizel fell to the ground were Dratini was. "Dratini, thunder wave!" Yelled Jand. Dratini spun around to the Buizel and released an immense electric cloud to it. Buizel was hit by thunder wave, and fell to the ground. In less then 2 seconds, it got back up and released an ear-wrenching sound from it's mouth. Jand quickly covered her ears in pain and Dratini fell to the ground. Dratini slowly got up, and lunged towards the Buizel. Dratini hit Buizel, and Buizel fell to the ground with Dratini on top of it. "Dratini, use wrap!" Shouted Jand as Dratini wrapped itself around Buizel. "Thunder wave!" Exclaimed Jand. Jand could see the sparks on Dratini's body as Buizel was electrocuted. Dratini unwrapped itself from Buizel and Buizel fell paralyzed to the ground. Jand threw a pokeball at the wounded Buizel. "Good job, Dratini" Said Jand quietly as the pokeball rocked back and forth...

"Figures," Tyson muttered. "Alright, one of you go one ahead and watch over Charmeleon while the rest of us handle this beast."

"Gliga!" Gligar called happily, raising a claw. Before Tyson could say anything, the flying scorpion had already flown off.

"Alright then... Aron, Mudslap! Snorunt, Icy Wind!" he barked out suddenly, surprising the pokemon that he could so quickly get into a battle.

"Ron!" Aron roared, getting into the mood just as easily. Running toward the giant rock snake, and dodging the Rock Throw from the angry beast, Aron began to kick up dirt.

"Oxiii!" Onix roared in pain as the mud beat against his side.

"Sno! Sno!" Snorunt called happily, running up the length of Onix and blowing a cold Icy Wind right in Onix's face.

"Onii!" Onix roared, thrashing around in anger and pain. Snorunt went flying, but managed to gain her groundings and land alright. With a horrible roar, Onix charged, head lowered in anger for a massive Tackle.

"Fight back!" Tyson roared. "Icy Wind! Mudslap!"

"Snooo!" Snorunt crooned, firing a harsh icy attack against Onix's side, freezing some of its side.

"Ron!" Aron barked, kicking up mud frantically. "Ron! Ron!" She continued, beginning to frantic as Onix charged through the mud. His large, horned head shot through the wall of mud and rammed right into her small one, sending her flying. "Arrrrooon!" Aron cried, shooting through the air.

"Aron!" Tyson shouted, watching with wide eyes as his pokemon slammed against the wall painfully.

"Onii," Onix grumbled in pain, curling around himself. It really wasn't all that fair that it was one against two. "Xiixxx!" it roared, picking up sharp rocks with its tail and chucking them at Snorunt and Aron.

Watching the rocks come, Tyson had a sudden idea. "Snorunt, freeze all the rocks with Icy Wind! Aron, when they're frozen, chuck them at Onix!"

Eyes glistening with understanding, Aron ducked and dodged under the rocks, knowing what could happen if an Onix was pelted with such large ice rocks. "Snoo!" Snorunt called, jumping and spinning in the air so that its Icy Wind attack flowed all around, hitting the incoming rocks and freezing them and having them fall to the ground with a large "THUNK"!

"Onii!" Onix roared, using his massive tail to break the rocks in half as he knew what their plan was. Tail slashing, the rocks began to crumble, but sharp chunks of ice began to dig into the cracks of Onix's rock tail.

"Roon!" Aron cried, seeing her chance to attack as the Onix roared in pain, the ice hurting it as it dug into his tail. Chomping down on the large ice rock, and ignoring her own wince from the weakness, Aron began to chuck them toward the Onix.

"Snoo!" Snorunt cried, sending a Powder Snow to help move the giant ice rock along.

Slamming his tail down on the ground to remove the ice shards, Onix only had a second to look up as the rock slammed right into his face, creating a massive shock wave of pain. "Onnniiiix!"

"Finish it!" Tyson called.

"Ar on!" Aron cried, digging up dirt.

"So runt!" Snorunt cried, mouth wide open to release the Icy Wind.

The ice and mud intermixed, creating an array of mud/ice bullets that pounded against the Onix. Roaring in pain, the massive rock snake thrashed through the air before landing on the ground, creating a small earthquake in the process.

"Ar," Aron grunted, grimacing as the shock waves tore at her body. Snorunt and Tyson didn't look so well off either. It took them a moment to get their groundings back before they, very carefully, climbed over Onix's massive body and toward the tunnel Charmeleon ran off at.

"Glad that's over," Tyson said to his pokemon, looking a little shaky. The shock wave had been intense.

Charmeleon ran down the tunnel, uncaring of his trainer's calls. The light from his tail led the way, so he was free to exercise his speed in the strange cave. In the background, he could hear a roar and, for just a second, thought of turning back before he heard Aron give her battle cry. And so he continued to move on. The female steel type always irritated him in the way a strong person respects an equally stronger person.

Finally, coming to a stop, Charmeleon kicked at a rock and watched it bounce away, all the while wishing for a fight. And it seemed he got his wish, but not in the form he had wanted. A trainer, a boy about his own trainer's age, noticed him because of his light and noise he had created. The boy had dark brown hair and that excitement all young male trainers carried. His face lit up in surprise as he finally took notice of him.

"Sweet! A shiny Charmeleon! Go, Combusken!" Well, the boy certainly didn't wait for a battle, much like his own.

"Combusken!" cried the newly arrived fighting fighting type called. It gave a few kicks in th air before leveling its sharp claws toward Charmeleon. it smirked and gestured for him to come.
http://dragonflycave.com/rssprites/256combusken.png

Charmeleon smirked back as well as he felt his blood pump with excitement. This was what he was talking about! A real fight! "Take this!" he roared, charging forward, claws extended.

Combusken hopped from foot to foot, feeling the anticipation as well. Giving a loud caw, the fighting **** charged as well claws extended. The two met with a clang, almost like two knives meeting. "Not good enough," Combusken taunted.

"This is nothing," Charmeleon growled, sneering as he pressed his face close to Combusken's. "But this is!" Mouth wide, draconic fire surged out of his mouth, blasting his opponent away and straight through a few rocks. With a billowing roar, Charmeleon stood with a proud look.

"Cocky, aren't you?" the trainer asked Charmeleon with an eager grin even though he couldn't understand what the pokemon were saying. "But Combusken isn't down yet! Double Kick!"

"Right!" Combusken roared, bursting out of the rubble. Despite looking a bit ruffled, the Hoenn fire type flung its taloned foot at Charmeleon hitting him...once! ...Twice!

One kick to the arm and one kick to the gut, sending him flying through some rocks this time. "Uhg," Charmeleon groaned before quickly rolling out of the way. No more than a second later, Combusken's claws were deep in the ground exactly where his head had been. "Suck this!" Charmeleon spat, mouth wide to fire an Ember.

Combusken grit his teeth as he raised an arm to shield his face. "Not bad," he admitted, clawed fingers twitched in preparation. Charmeleon noticed the movement and quickly jumped away, just before Combusken hit open air. Muzzle open, another Dragon Rage shot out towards the kicking fire type.

"Dodge!" the trainer bellowed, his voice echoing in the cave. "And follow up with Quick Attack."

"Got it!" Combusken crowed with happiness as he flipped over the attack. Charmeleon, for the briefest moment, felt a twinge of resentment. He remember roaring with happiness as he followed his trainer's orders, but that disappeared when his trainer's order's led to his failure... and the quick jab to the gut from COmbusken's Quick Attack. "Too slow," Combusken smirked.

Charmeleon scoffed as he jumped up. "Fast," he admitted with a sly grin, "but not powerful enough." The look Combusken gave him could melt a mountain if glares could shoot laser beams. "Now your turn! Dragon Rage!" Charmeleon shouted, muzzle wide as the draconic fire shot out toward the other fire type.

"Dodge with Quick Attack!" the trainer bellowed.

Nodding, Combusken became a blur just as the purplish fire shot right by him, reappearing by Charmeleon's side. "Scratch!" the kicking fire type snarled, bringing up his long claws.

"Not enough," Charmeleon growled, quickly bringing up his own claws and pressing back against the fighting type. The both grunted as their claws gave an echoing clang before they both pushed against the other. Sneering, Charmeoelon opened his mouth. At the movement, Combusken jumped back, not wanting to get hit again at such a close attack. Instead of a Dragon Rage or Ember, black smoke made its way out of Charmeleon's mouth, blinding them all.

"Be careful, Combusken," the trainer said softly, as if only his pokemon could hear. Once more the twinge of sadness tore at him. his own trainer said stupid stuff like that too.

"I will," Combusken said back, even if it sounded like, "Bus com!" to the trainer.

His fingers twitched once more as the other fire type assured his trainer. Tentatively, Charmeleon licked his lips before getting over his nervousness and bounding forward on all fours. Unfortuanently for him, he had a light on his tale that gave a soft glow, even through the Smokescreen, but could only be seen at a distance.

"Ember!" came the trainer's voice.

Glad he was on all fours, the fire balls flew over his head as he crawled closer and closer, only to muffle a yelp as his arm fell through a hole. Looking down the dark hole that had a tunnel underground, Charmeleon grinned, realizing that it was one of the many tunnles the pokemon in this cave had made to make short cuts all around the mountain. Without a second thought, he went down the hole.

"Where is it," the boy muttered, looking all around as the smoke finally cleared. He had come a long way in this league, already getting three badges. His partner, Combusken, whom he's had since he was a Torchic, was his strongest, and he knew he could count on it to handle this rare find.

Combusken looked around as well, claws extended as his talons raked against the ground in a nervous action he had not quite gotten over since he had evolved. Not daring to take a step, Combusken stayed in the same place. This, however, proved to be the wrong choice, because Charmeleon took that moment to attack.

"Gotcha!" Charmeleon roared, bursting out from the ground in a flurry of flailing claws and flame that cause the kicking fire type to screech out in shock. Laughing, Charmeleon struck the Combusken as soon as he burst out of the ground with enflamed claws that he had used to help dig his way to the surface.

"Combusken!" the boy yelled as his pokemon gave a loud cry of pain. "Quick, try and fight back with a Double Kick!"

"Not good enough!" Charmeleon chuckled, feeling exctremely pleased with his surprise attack. Muzzle wide open, the draconic fire was released from his mouth and hit the charging pokemon right in the chest.

With a loud screech of pain, Combusken opened bleary eyes that held unshed tears. Beak opening quickly, Combusken fired a quick Fire Spin attack, a move it had waited to learn before it had evolved. For a fighting type, Double Kick was an easy move to practice and learn on his own, but not Fire Spin that could not be learned without a teacher.

Charmeleon gave an angry screech as the firey vortex surrounded him, entrapping him more than actually doing harm as he was a fire type. He was pleased to see, however, that his last attack still did enough damage that his foe was down and out at last. Roaring, Charmeleon broke through the Fire Spin, recieving a small burn that stung on his arm, but still up. Looking up at the trainer, he smirked.

The boy grinned, his look a little feisty. "You are strong," he said, voice possessive. He reached for his next pokeball, but he was interrupted as loud footsteps echoed throughout the cave. Nervously, Charmeleon and the boy looked around. "Swarm," the boy said nervously, giving Charmeleon a longing glance before quickly running off. He released a Sandslash that helped lead him to safety, leaving Charmeleon alone to meet this supposed swarm.

"Charmeleon!" called a happy voice.

Charmeleon looked up and scowled. "Not you," he said bitterly.

"Don't be so jealous of a single win," Gligar said, a happy smile marred on his face. "Honestly, I don't know why you're so pissed. Tyson has used you plenty of times, and each time you've won. Everyone loses sometime, and does it really matter? You are his favorite."

Charmeleon couldn't deny that. There was just a bond trainer and first pokemon had with each other. Even if Tyson treated all of his pokemon equally, the two of them were best friends. They had known each other since he was an egg.

"We don't have time to talk about this," Charmeleon said, ignroing what the flying scorpion had said. "It looks like we have company."

And it was true. This supposed swarm was making their way towards them, and all they could do was get ready.

"Don't worry, the other's are on their way any second," Gligar said with conviction, causing the fire type to glance over for a second.

Yea... they would be.

Congratulations Charmeleon grew to level 26

Charmeleon stood there, poised at the ready. His claws were tingling with excitement at the possibilty of battle. The ground below Charmeleons feet began to shake, 'this swarm must be huge' he thought with a grin. The shaking suddenly stopped, and Charmeleon looked around to try and see the oncoming swarm. All he saw however, was four small brown heads with pink noses pop up from the ground....

The pokemon in front of Lucas' top half was a hard shell that was orange in color. It had a pair of large pincers that looked like they as powerful weapons. As Lucas took a step towards Corphish's pokeball, the wild pokemons mouth foamed up, and it lifted its pincers in a challenging kind of way. Lucas ripped out his Pokedex and scanned the crab like Pokemon.

Krabby
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/a/ad/Spr_3e_098.gif (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Spr_3e_098.gif)
The river crab Pokemon. It's the pre-evolved form of Kingler. It lives in burrows dug on sandy beaches. Its pincers fully grow back if they are broken in battle.

Lucas picked up Corphish's Pokeball and threw it up into the air. "I choose you Corphish!" With a flash of red Corphish emerged from his Pokebll.

"Corp hish corp." Screamed Lucas' newest Pokemon as he hit the floor.

"Corphish use Bubble!" Corphish's mouth opened wide and a series of bubbles floated out. They were heading towards Krabby.

"Krab by," Shouted the Krabby as he too opened his mouth and fired out a series of bubbles. All the bubbles met in the middle and popped in between the two crab like Pokemon.

"Kra kra by." Krabby's claw turned a shining walk colour and he scuttled over towards Corphish. His claw then moved towards Corphish's horn. He was using Vicegrip.

"Quick Corphish before he hits you; use Harden!" Corphish's whole body then turned a silverish colour. Krabby's claw then smashed into Corphish. But because of Corphish's hardened state Krabby came off worse. He scuttled backwards clutching his hurt fist in pain.

"Corp hish," Corphish smiled towards Lucas. Knowing that he had done well.

"Great work Corphish. Now try using Bubble while he's still hurt!" Corphish opened his mouth and released vicious bubble. The bubbles floated towards Krabby and popped right in his face.

"Kra ab by," Krabby winced in pain as the bubbles smashed in his face.

"Okay use Bubble again!" Once again Corphish released some bubbles. The bubbles flew over towards Krabby and smashed into his face.

"Kra by," Krabby cried out as he smashed against the floor and fainted.

Lucas walked off with Riolu on his shoulder and and Corphish by his side when suddenly a unknown to them Pokemon jumped out....

There was a slight movement to Lucas' side, and he turned to see a pink creature walking down onto the beach. The pokemon was moving very slowly and seemed unaffected by its surroundings. In fact, Lucas wasn't sure if the creature was aware that Lucas and his pokemon's were there at all...

Charmeleon peered down at the four pokemon. "What is this?" he demanded with a frown. "Don't tell me I have to battle-" He was cut off as one of the larger Diglett disappeared faster than the eye could see and ram him from underground. "-you," he finished with grunt before standing quickly. "Why you little!" Charmeleon roared as he pounded the ground angril with his tail.

The four Diglett just chuckled with childish delight and bulleted towards Charmeleon at an incredibly fast speed. "Dig! Dig!"

"Got ya!" Gligar called, grabbing Charmeleon and lifting the fire lizard into the air. "How about a little aieral combat?" Gligar called tauntingly at the four Diglett before firing a Poison Sting from his tail.

"Ooh, nice," Charmeleon said as he scrambled to stand on Gligar's back and shot down a barrage of Ember's.

"Ow! Ow! Hurts!" they cried out in pain as the Poison Sting and Ember pounded against their heads.

"Are they a little... well," Charmeleon scrambed for the right word.

"They have a very small brain and are limited on speech," Gligar explained as he glided over the angry Diglett as they shot many Sand Attacks towards them. One even used a Magnitude attack, but all that seemed to do was hurt the others.

"You do bad!" one of the bigger ones told the smaller one that used the massive attack to shake them up. "Now we all hurt!"

"Me help better!" the small one said pitifully.

"No, me help!" the second smallest one cried as it shot up the length of the wall. Charmeleon and Gligar were simply watching them, too amused to take them as any sort of threat. It wasn't until the small one jumped from the wall and right at them did anything frightening happen. "Yaaaah!" the tiny Diglett roared as it shot toward them like a bullet, its tiny little tentacle like claws flailing about in the air underneath its body as it flew.

"Holy crap! Those things actually have legs!" Gligar and Charmeleon yelled at the same time.

"Fly away!" Charmeleon yelled, tugging at Gligar's ears in an attempt to steer the pokemon.

"It doesn't work like that!" yelped as he flew hazardesly around the air. Because of the random turning, the tiny Diglett simply zoomed right by and landed hard on the ground, looking a bit worse for wear, not that Charmeleon and Gligar were doing so well in the air.

"Me hur..." The tiny Diglett was cut off on the account of becoming an ice cube.

From behind stood Snorunt. "I'm so sorry!" Snorunt wailed as she patted the icicle Diglett.

The three other Diglett's began to scream at a very loud pitch and run around everywhere with no sense of direction. In fact, all they did was make trenches all around without finding an escape route.

"Shut it!" a new voice snarled, finally followed by a spray of Mud Slap all around. The Diglett shook in fear and pain as the attack froze them in place. "Take this one and go!" Aron barked as she made her way forward.

"Yes! Yes!" they cried as they quickly took their frozen companion and took off.

"And you two!" Aron continued to bark at the still out of control Gligar and Charmeleon in the air. "Stop being idiots and get down here!"

"How do you steer!?" Charmeleon continued to scream as he tried to turn Gligar's body this way and that.

"Stop it!" Gligar cried. "I can steer on my---woahhh!" This time both Charmeleon and Gligar yelled at the same time as they finally ran into a wall, thus falling in a clump on the ground.

"Serves you right," Snorunt said angrily as she shook her ball hand in Charmeleon's face. "Tyson is so worried!"

Charmeleon gave a low grumble as he made to push himself up, only to blink as a pair of human arms picked him up. Tyson held the shiny Charmeleon in his arms, hugging him tightly. "Charmeleon..." he said softly.

Hesitently, Charmeleon returned the hug, feeling like a jerk. "Che."

"Charmeleon... you idiot!" Tyson roared, breaking Charmeleon out of the hug and shaking the dazed fire lizard in the air. "Do you have any idea how worried we were? How worried I was!?"

Charmeleon grumbled a bit, hating the guilt wriggling in his body.

"Well?" Tyson demanded. "What do you have to say for yourself.

"We're waiting," Aron said with a smirk, even if it did come out as "Ar rro."

Charmeleon shot her a glare, but was met with an icy look from Snorunt who was defending her friend. "Che," Charmeleon said, looking away. Damn girls, they were all out to get him. At least Gligar was ok...

Tyson let out a sigh as he carefully put Charmeleon down. "Come on," he said. "I see the exit there." He waved needlessly at the opening just a few ways away, and suddenly Charmeleon felt a whole lot better. He had missed it when his trainer said needless things to his pokemon.

"Me," Charmeleon said happily as he led the way and out of the cave.

OOC: Sorry this is so lame. Just wanted to get out of the tunnel...

(sorry for the slight bunnying here, I assumed you wanted to skip the rest point)

Tyson and his pokemon left the cave and were immediately blinded by the bright sunlight. Covering his eyes from the glare, Tyson immediately saw the Rest Point he had been told about back in Highland. He quickly made his way inside and got his pokemon healed. He then asked Nurse Joy where he should head next.

"Oh, the only way forward from here is to head along Route 6," said nurse Joy, "Its the large path that runs East from here, you can't miss it. If you follow the path, it will take you straight to the next town."

"Oh, the only way forward from here is to head along Route 6," said nurse Joy, "Its the large path that runs East from here, you can't miss it. If you follow the path, it will take you straight to the next town."

Tyson had followed those instructions and had started walking towards the east. In no time at all, he had discovered an extremely large path. The path itself was wide enough to hold at least two Snorlax's, and was incredibly bare. It was almost as if someone decided to take a giant eraser and wipe out a single patch in this area, because off to the sides were rather thick and rather tall bushes.

"Look's like the only way to battle a wild pokemon is to force them out," Tyson said outloud with a grin. "Go, Snorunt!"

With a burst of white light, the cone pokemon appeared. "Snoo!" Snorunt said happily, bouncing up and down in excitement as she took notice of her new surroundings.

"Snorunt, use Powder Snow in the bushes to force out some pokemon," Tyson told her.

"Run," Snorunt said with a nod. Mouth opening, Snorunt released a soft powder that shouldn't really hurt a pokemon, or the bushes, but rather agitate them enough into coming out.

Almost immediately, the bushes began to shake, almost as if it were cold, but Tyson knew it was a pokemon, or maybe even a person, that was agitating those bushes. And, out from the bushes, came a...

"Perfect!" Tyson exclaimed. "Use Double Team to get it off of you," Tyson commanded.

"Snoo!" Snorunt cried, quickly creating many doubles and running around at a fast pace. Unfortuanently for Snorunt, the Abra was given a double as well and held onto Snorunt even as she ran around.

"That's not working, Snorunt," Tyson called to his pokemon, not wanting her to waste energy by running around.

"Snoo," Snorunt said, trying to turn her head to see the pokemon perched atop her back. However, what with Snorunt's body structure, it was impossible. "Sno! Sno!" Snorunt wailed, finally just throwing herself to the ground and rolling around in a desperate attempt to get the pokemon off.

"Abr...aa," Abra said with a sigh as it easily fell off her back and getting squished a bit in the process. However, the damage couldn't have been that great, but it was knocked out.

"Snoo?" Snorunt questioned, tapping the pokemon before jumping back in shock as its body glowed briefly before disappearing.

"Woah!" Tyson yelped in shock. He had been making his way over to check on the pokemon, but it had disappeared as soon as he made it within a foot. Looking around, he heard a dull noise.

"Brra." It was more like a sigh, but it was still a sound, and Tyson and Snorunt were able to pinpoint the attack. "Icy Wind!" he bellowed, pointing at the tree branch.

"Snoo!" Snorunt called, letting loose the icy attack. The sparkling air current struck true. The Abra that had been on the tree simply sat there and took the attack. The ice covered its whole body, turning it into more or less a pokemon icicle. With the icy overcoat, the frozen pokemon fell off the tree and landed with a loud bang.

Tyson winced, suddenly feeling a little sorry for the pokemon. It hadn't really put up much of a fight, but really, in the midst of a trainer's presence, why wouldn't it fight? There was always that possibility for wild pokemon to fight... but why? Suddenly, a loud roar erupted his thoughts. Had the loud crash irritate some unknown pokemon?

"Br bra," Aba chuckled, suddenly reappearing in front of a shocked Tyson and Snorunt. There were still bits of ice covering it, but from the crash it had been freed. It was standing this time, and as another roar came, it gave a sadistic little chuckle before disappearing from sight with the use of its Teleport.

"Get ready," Tyson told his pokemon. "I think we just interrupted a sleeping pokemon or, perhaps, the pokemon that helps guard the others around here."

"Sno..." Snorunt said, nodding a little hesitently as another loud roar echoed around them.

The bushes began to shake furiously, almost as if a giant were creating a mini earthquake. And, what came out of the bushes, was a...

Character Name: Kyle Gallagher.
Gender: Male.
Age: 15.
Appearance: Kyle wears nothing interesting at all. He looks like one of those kids who are commanly saw on the street, in a a gang. To match his personality, he wears a black hoody, which the hood is over his head most of the time. A black hat, despite a hoody, blue jeans which are big, because of his height, and wears two earrings and a ring on his finger, even though he's not engaged. His clothes match the way he is, a dark person who likes the night and being in danger. People see him as scary by what he wears.
Personality: A long time ago, Kyle was a nasty person, who was doing bad things in his town, misbehaving in school a lot which shows he is not good. However, he had changed in time and had became a better person once he left his gang, so that made him become nicer, fixing the mistakes he made. However, because he is now nice doesn't mean he has totally changed. He can be very obnoxious and rude to people that take him badly, so altogether he can be reasonable. In Pokemon battles, he could be comptetive though because his attitude can make him quite challenging.
History: When he was 13, Kyle was in a gamg of thugs who always drove around town doing bad things, like graffiti and getting in trouble. His behavious was bad, so he got excluded at the same age showing that he had to learn a lesson, but he still stayed in the gang and his behavious stayed the same, bad. While he was in the gang, he did start to lose it a bit and got bored, so when he was 14, the leader of the gang kicked him out for not doing anything, so he then had nothing to do. Ever since, he has learned from his mistakes, apologized to the people he had done wrong to, apologized to the school and became a nicer person, but not completely nice.
Preferred Starter: Houndour.
How Obtained: A time when Kyle was in the gang, at night, they all drove around the town on their motorbikes, just exploring around. When they all reached the forest, Kyle had found something strange, a black and red egg that had been found under a dead tree with leaves fallen under it. Kyle had no idea what it is, and was curious to klnow what it is, and knowing back then that he was a thug, eh took the egg without a care, without him knowing that it was actually an egg of a Pokemon. Once they all arrived back, weeks passed until the egg started to move. Kyle was shocked to see what was going on, and jumped when he first heard it. His dad then came to tell him that it was an egg, and he couldn't believe his eyes. Under all the evil spirit, he was quite soft and loves the cute stuff, and thought it would be a Pokemon that was just like him that would hatch. Not so long after, the egg started to hatch into a Houndour, which Kyle had grew strongly fond of, and he always gave it love and cared. Because of this, the gang had lost intrest in him and kicked Kyle out, but he did grow into a nice person who was one day going to train Houndour up good.

Above the bushes, Tyson could make out what looked like two huge eyes. He breathed heavily adn steadied himself, then all of a sudden the creature burst through the bushes and revealed the eyes to in fact be a pair of horns. The owner of these horns looked like a brown coloured deer, with a cream underside and tail.
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/8/80/Spr_3e_234.gif (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Spr_3e_234.gif)

Tyson grinned. "Snorunt, Icy Wind!"

"Snoo!" Snorunt cried, releasing an ice cold blast from her mouth almost immediately.

The Stantler stamped her feet to the ground and let out a high bellow just before she jumped out of the way. "Stta," Stantler said before charging at Snorunt and bashing into the pokemon with a purple fire surounding it.

"Snooo!" Snorunt yelled out in pain, shivering from the Astonish attack.

"That was fast... Snorunt, don't give in! Icy Wind!" Tyson called to his pokemon.

"Ru!" Snorunt cried, quickly releasing the icy attack and hitting right on the mark this time.

"Staaa!" Stantler cried as she was pushed back against the force of the cold wind. "Sta," she said, shaking her head before glowering at Snorunt. Suddenly, her horns began to quiver, and Snorunt began to wobble.

"Sno... ruu..." Snorunt said with a wide yawn as she stretched her little ball arms. "Sn..." With that, the ice type fell asleep.

"Snorunt!" Tyson called to his pokemon. All he got was a few snores. "Hypnosis," he growled. "Return." As soon as his pokemon was returned, he threw out Gilgar's. "Go!"

With a burst of white light, the flying scorpion appeared. "Gliga!" he called out happily before turning seriously to the large deer pokemon.

"Gligar, Poison Sting!" With that call from his trainer, Gligar nodded in confirmation and shot towards the Stantler, firing the Poison Sting from its tail.

"St," Stantler winced, closing her eyes as the sharp needles pounded into her side. "Ler!" she cried, charging forward, head lowered.

"Dodge!" Tyson said with a grin, knowing his pokemon would have no trouble.

"Glii!" Gligar laughed, zooming over the deer pokemon just as it bashed its head into open air. It really paid off being able to fly. "Gar!" Tail poised, Gligar shot another barrage of Poison Sting.

"Good job," Tyson told his pokemon as Stantler fell to her knees. "Let's finish it with Knock Off!"

"Gliig!" Gligar called, dive bombing the Stantler.

"Staa," Stantler crooned, the balls in her antlers quivering softly.

"Gli..."

"Gligar, don't look at the antlers!" Tyson yelled. "Just continue with that Knock Off!"

"Glii... Gii!" Gligar shook his head in a desperate attempt to remove an drowziness. With a fierce expression, Gligar slammed his wings into Stantler's gut, sending the crying pokemon flying right into the bushes.

"Stt..." came the weak reply, but Stantler made no move to get up.

"Gliii!" Gligar cried out in victory as he held up a claw.

"Great job!" Tyson said as he picked up his pokemon. "You're battling skills are improving so much!"

"Gli," Gligar said with a blush as he rubbed the back of his head with a pincer.

"Come on, let's go," Tyson said, already walking with Gligar on his shoulder.

"Gli," Gligar said with a nod before his eyes went wide. "Gaarr!" he shouted, pointing to a moving bush.

"Already, huh?" Tyson said with a large grin. "Well, come on out!" he yelled to the bushes...

@Wolfwhispers - Congratulations Gligar grew to Level 14

A small pokemon with what looked like a pearl balancing on its head and springs for legs was just bouncing up and down looking at Tyson and Gligar. Upon Tysons yell, the pokemon leapt straight over the bushes and landed right in front of Tyson. The pokemon looked up at Tyson, confused as to why it had been called out of the bushes so loudly by Tyson....

"Spoo...?" it questioned with confusion, only to let out a loud cry of pain as Gligar knocked right into it with his wings. "Sp... Spoink!" she cried loudly, body quivering as she balanced herself on her tail.

"Wait, hold up, Gligar," Tyson told his pokemon as Gligar made to hit the pokemon with Poison Sting.

"Gliia?" Gligar questioned, landing on the ground next to a crying Spoink. A little hesitently, Gligar patted it on the back. "Gli!" he said enthusiastically, trying to brighten up the pokemon's attitude.

"I guess we can't always assume a pokemon wants to fight," Tyson said with a baffled grin on his face. "Sorry, Spoink," he told the pokemon as he kneeled next to Gligar. "You're free to go."

"Sp... oink!" Spoink said gratefully as she bounced onto some bushes, faltered a bit, and then moved out of sight.

Tyson frowned a bit, noticing how the pig pokemon nearly tripped. Moving over to the bushes, he scrounged around before pulling out a strange disk in surprise. "Wow. Hey, check it out, Gligar," he said to his pokemon. "I think its a TM!"

"Gli?" Gligar said, reaching out towards the disk...

OOC: I would be grateful if this TM could be X-Scissor, but if not, I'll make it a less powerful move, but as I do nearly have four badges...

A small, yellow Pokemon with a round body jumped out in front of Lucas, blocking his path. The Pokemon had two horns on the top of its head, and its arms were huge in comparison to the rest of its body. The Pokemon looked up at Lucas and gave an evil grin, before beginning to spin its arms rapidly. Lucas pulled his Pokedex out and scanned the little yellow Pokemon.

Elekid
http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/f/f8/Spr_3e_239.gif (http://www.pokecommunity.com/wiki/Image:Spr_3e_239.gif)
The electric Pokemon. It is the pre-evolution of Electabuzz. It generates electricity by whirling its arms. However, it can't store the energy it makes.

"Well I guess this little guy looks tough enough to become one of my Pokemon. I choose you Riolu!" Riolu walked from Lucas' side and clenched his fists; ready for battle.

"Ele kid!" The wild Elekid followed Riolu's footsteps and he too clenched his fists; ready for battle.

"Here we go. Riolu use Aura Sphere to start this off!" Riolu pulled his arms back and created a blue ball of aura. He then thrusted his arms and pushed the ball towards Elekid.

"Ele kid." Elekid waited and waited for the ball to come towards him. When the ball finally got to him he jumped and and used Low Kick; smashing the ball back towards Riolu.

"Riolu before it hits you smash the ball by using Force Palm!" Before the ball got to Riolu a little yellow bulge appeared on Riolu's palm. The ball of aura then came flying towards Riolu; he thrusted his palm straight into the ball smashing it in the process.

"Ele Kiddddd!" Screamed the Elekid as electricity came flying from his head and towards Riolu. He was using Thundershock.

"Quick Riolu before it hits you use Endure!" Riolu then turned an odd shade of brown. All of the electricity connected but when Riolu turned back to his normal colour he looked very much unharmed.

"Ri ri olu!" He looked at Lucas. Obviously very happy with his antics.

"Riolu use Quick Attack!" Riolu started to run towards Elekid; leaving a bright white trail in his wake.

"Ele kid!" Elekid too started to run towards Riolu; leaving a white trail in his wake. He was using Quick Attack as well. The two bashed into each other leaving each other to smash against the floor.

"Okay Riolu use Aura Sphere!" Riolu got back to his feet. He then pulled back his hands and made a ball of aura. Riolu then thrusted his arms and the ball of aura was sent flying towards Elekid.

"Ele Kiddddd!" Elekid then used Thundershock. The electricity went flying towards the ball of aura and smashed the ball into a million pieces.

"Wow. He really is quite strong Riolu use Force Palm!" Riolu started to run towards Elekid as he was running the same old yellow bulge appeared on Riolu's palm. He then smashed his fist into Elekid's face. Elekid fell to the floor he started jittering because of the electric current that Force Palm pushed into his body. Finally Riolu got his first attack on target.

"Ele kid." Elekid struggled to his feet. Then he ran towards Riolu and used Low Kick. With a swing of his leg he kicked Riolu's legs; sending him straight to the ground.

"Riolu we seriously need to hurry up and finish this. Let's start by using Counter!" Riolu then turned a bright purple colour and a beam emnated from his body and smashed into Elekid leaving him wincing in pain on the floor.

"Ri olu!" Riolu looked at Lucas asking the all important question.

"That's right Riolu finish this by using Aura Sphere full power!" Riolu once again pulled back his hands and thrusted his fists; pushing his signature ball of aura towards the Elekid. The ball smashed into him right in the weak spot. Lucas pulled out a Pokeball. "POKEBALL GO!" Lucas threw the Pokeball at the Elekid. It pulled the Elekid inside and it started to shake....

It was Kyle's first time on an Oravi Island, and he had no idea which way to go, so he got his map out and took a look at it and see which area he had to go. "Okay then. To the northwest where we go to Maritime Forest. Sounds too easy." indeed it was, because it was a small place where all trainers started off, and nothing much stood in the way of where he was to there. While he was walking down the road, there were a lot of bypassers who were also on this journey of the Orava islands, he wasn't taking it too seriously as he wasn't like that, he was too laid back to care. On the path he was walking down, there were a lot of trees around, because he was in the forest area in the northwest. Kyle was pretty annoyed though, because there was quite a bit to walk and he had to leave his motorbike at home as a safety procaution.


While he was walking, some strange looking girl with braces was skipping along the path Kyle was walking down, the girl had strangely waved to him with her fingers twiddling. All Kyle did in return was give a strange look as the girl was pretty strange and he didn't do strange. She started to skip back down with her long and thin legs, and a smile so wide that all her braces shown. "Err... can I help you?" Kyle asked as if she was getting on his nerves. She still had a smile, infact she was laughing with him (even though he wasn't laughing) at his comment. "Hi! My name is Lisa! Lisa Evans." she introduced herself, with Kyle starting to smile. Despite his attitude, he was quite social and did get along very well with some people. "Kyle. Kyle Gallagher. Cool to see you." he introduced while smirking back at her, but she just laughed pretty oddly yet again. "Are you on that trainer challenge thing?" Lisa was curious, to see if anyone else was on the challenge, in hich she was. "Yeah. I am." Kyle said, trying to sound as if he didn't want her to be, him crossing his fingers that she wasn't going the same way as him. "Great! Me too! Hahahaha. I'm going northwest to Maritime Forest!" Lisa told him. Kyle tried so hard not to slap himself, but instead he just put on a smile nearly as deep as hers since he was pretty annoyed by her. "Wow. Me too." Kyle replied, sounding not very enthusicastic. "Yay!! We could go together! It's gunna be so fun, you and me! My new friend!" she really was sounding annoying to Kyle, and he tried so hard not to ditch her, so he just wanted to get down along the road and to the forest as soon as possible. "I guess we better get going then. Might aswell." as much as Kyle didn't want to go with her, he couldn't just ditch her. They started to get walking again, Lisa skipping rather than walking.


They both could see the forest in site, because there were a whole lot of trees in the area, aswell as a large, pink, red and white building, which looked like a Pokemon Center where they could rest up. Lisa started to sing, "La la la la la..." it was repeated several times, which really got on Kyle's nerves but he did just try and block it all out by closing his eyes and taking deep breathes. The final straw was when Lisa started to scream her tune, which really made Kyle grind his teeth. "You know what, let's just talk. Which Pokemon have you brought?" he brought up a conversation to stop her screaming. She was interested and smiled at him with her braces showing, talking to him. "I brought my Spinirak. It's a spider! I love spiders! Hahahahahahaha." considering Lisa was pretty annoying, Kyle wasn't so suprised at her choice. "Oh really now? I brought my Houndour. Got it a while ago from an egg. It's a dog." he pointed out, which made lisa laugh in fun, as she liked dogs. It seemed as if she liked everything. After passing the time, the forest was finally close, and Kyle was now starting to run as she wanted to get away from Lisa, but he failed at that. "Hey! Wait up, Kyle!" she skipped a lot faster. She caught up easily because of her athletic body, but Kyle was still running, Lisa laughed as if it were a race. Finally, they both reached the sign at the forest, and walked inside the building which was infact a Pokemon Center. "I win! I win! Hahahaha." Lisa made it sound as if she were victorious, but Kyle just ignored her and tried to find a place to sit down, and ask wehere to go next, hoping to avoid Lisa.

@FlareonFan - Just a quick point... there are no maps. No one knows where they are going... thats kind of the point. The only directions you can get are off me at the designated Rest Stops. Leave your post this time, but note that for the future.

Man that girl would be annoying... Anyway here are some directions for you:

Kyle walked up to the counter, ignoring the constant pestering from Lisa, and asked Nurse Joy for directions through the Forest.

"I'm sorry," Nurse Joy replied, "But all I've been told is that trainers have to head directly into the centre of the Forest. There is a Town built right in the middle, which is where the first Gym is located. Just head deeper and deeper into the forest until you reach the town. That's all I can tell you I'm afraid..."

"Gli?" Gligar said, reaching out towards the disk...

As soon as the flying scorpion placed his pincer on the disk, the whole TM lit up with a light white, as did GLigar's eyes. "Glig!" Gligar exclaimed happily. He jumped high into the sky, startling Tyson in thr process, but Gligar knew what he was doing. "Gliii!" he yelled, dive bombing a tree with his pincer crossed. As soon as he hit a tree, a green colored X that was made of light slammed against the tree, making a rather deep indent. "Gar! Gar!"

"Woah, that was awsome!" Tyson exclaimed. "That was X-Scissor! Come on we, need to look for someone to battle to try this out properly."

"Gar gar!" Gligar said happily, nodding his head so quickly that Tyson was surprised he didn't get dizzy.

Almost as if their prayers were answered, the first step they took into the bushes revealed a low rustle. The pokemon jumped out immediately, obviously wanting to fight as well...

Tyson was met with a very strange sight. The pokemon that jumped out of the bushes was nothing like he had ever seen before. The front half of the pokemon was predominantly yellow in colour, with black spots. The pokemon also had a long neck and two small yellow horns on its head. The back half of the pokemon however, was completely black in colour. The most unusual thing about this pokemon was its tail... in that it was a second, mcuh smaller, head. This strange pokemon was pawing the ground with one of its front hooves, and looked ready for a fight...

"Yes I've captured a Elekid!" Lucas ran over to his Elekid's Pokeball and he picked it up then released his newest Pokemon. He released Corphish too; leaving Elekid, Corphish and Riolu to become acquainted. Lucas walked all around looking for other Pokemon whilst leaving his Pokemon to chill and chat. Lucas looked around opening a few doors looking for Pokemon but alas he couldn't find any.

Then Lucas walked back to see his Pokemon he picked up Riolu and placed him on his shoulder. He pulled out both Corphish's and Elekid's Pokeball and returned them. He then began to walk off when something jumped out in front of him.....

"Giraa!" it barked as it stamped its hooves to the ground. It lowered its head and smiled eagerly at Gligar.

"Gli," Gligar said, smiling back as it spread it arms, ready to take off at the first command.

Unable to keep away from the same excitement as these two, Tyson gave a large grin. "Alright, Gligar, let's try that new attack!"

"Glii!" Gligar shouted with excitement as it flew through the air, its arms narrowed to make its arm flaps narrow to dive, its pincer's already crossed.

"Ifa," Girafarig said softly, her eyes following carefully. Just as Gligar was upon her, she jumped. "Giraa!" she howled, horns glowing with color before firing a multicolored beam at the flying ground type.

"Gli?" Gligar blinked in shock, his face incredulious before letting out a loud scream of pan as soon as the beam hit. "Gliii!"

"Gligar, are you ok?" Tyson said worriedly, standing over his pokemon as it shakily got to its feet and shook its head.

"Gli," Gligar breathed, nodding to show that it was fine. "Gar gar!" Gligar shouted at Girafarig, already floating in the air with his tail poised.

"Gir fir," Girafarig said with amusement, a cocky smile on her face. "Raar!" she barked, charging forward, hooves making loud beating sounds as it raced across the ground.

"Gligar, use Poison Sting!" Tyson ordered.

"Glii!" Gligar called, stinger glowing as it shot the needle towards Girafarig.

"Gir," Girafarig growled, her eyes narrowed as she jumped over all of the needle, startling Gligar. "Grra!" she called, hoof slamming down onto Gligar as he desperately tried to attack with another Poison Sting.

"Gli gl," Gligar grunted, his pincers trying to raise himself, but Girafarig's hoof held him down.

"Gligar, get rid of it with Knock Off," Tyson ordered.

"Gligg," Gligar snarled, tail glowing a blackish color briefly before it bashed into Girafarig, knocking her way.

"Aafa," Girafarig panted, looking a little woozy from the attack, but she maintained her grounding with a fierce look.

Tyson watched the pokemon carefully before smiling in understanding. Girafarig was part psychictype, so dark and bug type moves would deal a great amount of damage. However, after seeing how fierce this cerain Girafarig was, Tyson knew it would take a whole lot more than what he had given to win.

"Giraa!" Girafarig barked, running forward once more, her horns glowing as she used another Confusion.

"Gligar, fly up high to dodge the attack!" Tyson ordered, quickly craning his neck as Gligar flew into the air, high above them all.

"Gira..." Girafarig said slowing, craning her neck as well, her nostrils quivering. With a smirk, and her eyes locked on, she fired another Confusion.

High above, Gligar blanched as the colorful beam made a straight line, heading towards him. "Glii!" he sputtered, trying to flap his arms like a bird to get away, but no matter which direction he went, the beam follow. "Gliiii!"

"Gligar!" Tyson called, watching in horror as his pokemon started to fall. He grit his teeth, though felt a grudging respect for Girafarig for being so resourcful with its Odor Sleuth attack. Watching his pokemon pick up speed, he suddenly had an idea. "Quick, aim your body towards Girafarig and use X-Scissor!" he called.

"Gli... gliga!" Gligar shouted in understanding, reopening his eyes as he let out his arms, aiming them towards the Girafarig. "Garg li!" he called, pincers crossed.

"Griia!" Girafarig called, sending out another Confusion attack.

"Gli," Gligar smirked, moving its body to the side to dodge the attack. Eyes widening happily, Gligar finally made contact, and with the speed it was going, the attack doubled in power. "Gliiii!"

"Giiiaag!" Girafarig cried, her body skidding across the ground, sending rubble everywhere. A nice red X showed on her side, right where Gligar attack. It looked very painful, but despite all the that, Girafarig gave out one huge huff and began to get to her feet, albeit a bit slowly.

"Woah," Tyson said, unable to believe that this pokemon had managed to withstand such an attack.

"Glii," Gligar said as, in awe as well.

Girafarig lowered her head, prepared to charge once more, despite her quivering legs, when suddenly, a high pitched scream echoed throughout the area, but it sounded as if it came from more than one source. Girafarig raised her head, eyes wide and ears perked. Nostrils quivering, she spared Gligar an apologetic look before trotting off, nearly tripping in the process from the pain.

"Glii!" Gligar shouted in worry as Girafarig ran through the bushes and into the wooded area that surrounded the path, taking in her hurt form.

"Come on!" Tyson said, running after the hurt pokemon. "We need to know who or what screamed!"

"Gar glil!" Gligar said in agreement, gliding by Tyson's side. When they finally came to a clearing, they were met with an odd sigh. Huddled together were a bunch of small pokemon, such as Rattata, Hoppip, Pidgey, Zigzagoon, Surskit and even a Magby as well as others, and surrounding them were five very large pokemon. They were all flexing heir muscles, fangs glistening as they cackled at the weaker pokemon, the apparent bullies of their forest. Girafarig stood resolutely in front of the smaller pokemon, her face determined and angry as stood off against them. The five bully pokemon all sneered, looking prepared to attack.

"Watch out!" Tyson shouted.

"Gliii!" Gligar shouted as well, eyes wide as the pokemon attacked...

After getting the directions from Nurse Joy, the map was now void and it meant nothing. So, he threw the map in the bin and sat down for a few minutes before he would walk off northwest. While he was, Lisa was running up and down the stairs like a weirdo, talking to random people walking up the stairs. Kyle just bowed his head, trying not to look as it was very annoying if they looked like they knew each other. One person even started to start a fight with her, but she just smiled and gave a stupid comment, something like "Violence is not the answer, now let us be friends!" what was more embarassing was that she was older than him, unbelievably. He had enough of watching, and he needed to get out, hoping Lisa would not follow. Step by step, Kyle was sneaking out the other enterance that went the way he was supposed to go, and when he was at the door, Kyle ran out off his shoes.


Lisa did not see anything, so it was a very lucky escape he made. The path coming down was quite long, and it was yet again surrounded by trees. This time, he wanted to take his Houndour for a walk while he was walking, so he took out the PokeBall and pushed the middle button, releasing Houndour, who barked right after it came out. "Okay, let's go." they were just about ready to walk together, away from the forest and on the way to the town.

All the Zangoose roared and cackled in delight as they bashed into the defensless Girafarig, causing both Tyson and Gligar to shake with anger. "Go!" he shouted, releasing all of his pokemon so that it would be even. With a burst of white light, all of his pokemon appeared, all ready to battle, and Girafarig threw him a thankful look. "Alright, everyone attack!" Tyson roared. "Charmeleon, let's get this leader!"

"Chara!" Charmeleon snarled as it jumped in front of Tyson to face off against the biggest one. Charmeleon held up his claws, an eager look on his face as he charged the Zangoose before a clash that sounded like swords met Tyson's ears as their claws met.

Over with Gligar, it was busy standing on Girafarig's back, aiming Poison Sting in two different directions as the psychic type fired a Confusion in two different directions. As they both had an opponent, and Girafarig was weak, they were working together to keep the other from getting too hurt.

"Zan! Zang!" the two opposing Zangoose roared as the two attacks hit. Hissing, the two became nothing more than blurs as they used their Quick Attack. Even as Girafarig used her Odor Sleuth, she had no time to counter attack before both she and Gligar were hit.

Over with Aron and Snorunt, the two females were gaining up on the last two. Similiar to how Girafarig and Gligar were working, Aron was busy kicking up mud to lower the two Zangoose's accuracy and to blind them while Snorunt was perched ontop of Aron's little Spike while blowing an Icy Wnd attack. She was doing a marvellious job, but each time one of the Zangoose got a bit of ice attached to their bodies, they would immediately slice or crush it away.

"Snooo!" Snorunt cried, her mouth narrowed as she continually fired the ice attack.

"Ar, ar, ar," Aron grunted as she kicked up more dirt. She knew Snorunt, despite her figure, was good at balancing. She needed that when running around on ice, thus she wasn't worried about the cone pokemon falling off her spike.

"Once more, Charmeleon!" Tyson called eagerly, seeing that he was staring to gain the upper hand. After clashing with Zangoose too often, and losing thanks to its Sword Dance technique, he was beginning to see an opening.

Charmeleon, also knowing what Tyson was talking about ran forward at his command, claws flashing. "Meleon!"

"Zaa..." Zangoose hissed lowly, its eyes following Charmeleon's every move. Just as it was about to strike, it brought up its claws and began to spin. Using its Sword Dance technique, Zangoose knew the fire lizard wouldn't be able to land a hit on him.

"Ch," Charmeleon scoffed, looking unaffected by the obvious attack. With a hige huff, "Chuh!" Charmeleon shot over the Zangoose, is muzzle facing towards Zangoose's head. "Chh," Charmeleon said with a cocky smile, mouth already wide and bright.

"Zang!" Zangoose cried out in shock, still spinning but eyes following the fire lizard's every move. It could only close its eyes as the fire began to rain down on it, followed by his roar of pain.

"Ar aor," Aron breath as it ran with Snorunt. The two were panting, as it was so hard to keep up with the speedier normal types. Countless times they had been attacked by their Quick Attack, but Aron was beginning to see a pattern.

"Zangg!" the two cried, becoming blurs as they charge. Left... left... right... left... The same thing over and over.

"Ron!" Aron cried, her claws glowing as she threw Snorunt high into the air with her head.

"Snoooo!" Snorunt cried as she was flung into the air, body spinning as she released the Icy Wind attack.

"Zag!" the Zangoose cried, tumbling in their tracks as the attack got them in the chest and face.

Aron, who was so small, was able to avoid the attack completely. Grinning at the stopped pokemon, she charged. "Roooon!" she cried, claws glowing as she finally made contact, hitting one right after the other.

"Zan... goose..." they muttered as they fell to the ground. Both Snorunt and Aron grinned at each other before rushing off to help Gligar and this new pokemon...

"Gli! Gli! GLi!" Gligar called with each jab. The flying pokemon was unsuccessfully trying to use Knock off on one of the Zangoose, but it was too fast.

"Zangoose!" Zangoose roared, dodging another jab before it took its huge claws and slammed them down on Gligar's much smaller body.

"Gagli!" Gligar yelped as it landed hard on the ground, its beat up body desperately trying to push itself up. When he couldn't he glared up at the evil looking Zangoose as it prepared to strike.

"Giraa!" Girafarig roared, the fury in her voice more than enough to make the Zangoose pause in its attack. "Rafari!" she cried, hoof slamming down on the Zangoose and making it go face first into the ground.

"Gli gli gli," Gligar chuckled softly as Zangoose's face came inches away from its own. "Glii!" he shouted suddenly when he got up to his feet, pincer pointing. Both Girafarig and Gligar blanched as the other Zangoose came charging at them, a furious roar verberating from its lips as its claw came right at them.

"Aron!"

"Snorunt!"

With that cry from the two pokemon, the two bashed right into Zangoose with their Headbutt, sending it flying into a tree. Wiith relieved looks, the two female pokemon sent encouraging looks to Gligar and Girafarig before they all limped over to the last fight: The Leader vs. Charmeleon.

"Charm!" Charmeleon roared, its Ember attack firing away at an astounding speed.

"Za! Za! Za!" Zangoose cried as it used its Quick Attack to get away from all of the fire balls. Enraged, Charmeleon stamped his feet in anger, tail swishing around as it looked like he would lose control.

"Calm down," Tyson barked. He didn't need his pokemon to get out of control right now, especially when both were so exhausted. "Use another Ember!"

"Meleon!" Charmeleon roared, mouth wide as it released the flames.

Zangoose jumped high over the flaming balls, its claws wide and prepared as it smiled evilly down at Charmeleon. "Zangooo!" it cried, swinging its claws like an arc just as Charmeleon tried to jump away. It was too late, and the claws struck Charmeleon's belly.

"Chaa!" Charmeleon gasped as it crashed back to earth with a loud grunt.

"Zannoo," Zangoose said lowly, a pleased smile on its face as it stood over Charmeleon, its claws at the ready.

"Now!" Tyson roared. "While its body is exposed like that!"

"Meleon!" Charmeleon roared, muzzle wide just as the claws of Zangoose came towards him. Hot fire balls from his Ember attack shot out of his mouth, and as Zangoose was only a foot away, the fire balls hit its stomach with more power than usual.

"Zannnogo!" Zangoose cried, body jerking as each fire ball pounded against its body. Eyes wide, the Zangoose tipped over and landed on the ground with a grunt.

"Chaa..." Charmeleon breathed as he got up.

Tyson and the rest of the pokemon all cheered as Charmeleon hobbled over to them. The fire type gave a small wave before tilting its head at Gligar. The flying scorpion was still perched on Girafarig's back, but it simply gave Charmeleon a wink and a huge smile. "Gli."

"Che," Charmeleon said with a shrug, eyes closed and face relaxed as he began to recieve praise before his eyes shot open. "Me!" Charmeleon gasped, muzzle open as it quickly tried to fire its Ember attack.

"Zangoo!" the leader, who had been thought to be down and out, roared as it sprang from the ground, startling them all. The Ember attack flew right by it as it used its superior speed to get away. Eyes landing on Girafarig, the previous protector of all the smaller pokemon, Zangoose gave a loud roar.

"No!" Tyson yelled as Zangoose slammed Girafarig away with its claws. The poor psychic pokemon had a large gash in its side and was now breathing heavily, eyes half closed. Gligar, was screaming in her face and was trying to cover the wound.

"Cahrmelo!" Charmeleon roared, mouth wide as the draconic fire shot out of its mouth, eyes hard. "Melon!" he snarled as the attack hit the Zangoose and pounded his chest in victory, body fierce and angry of that of a savage wingless dragon.

"Zangooose!" Zangoose roared as the draconic fire engulfed its body, tearing and burning it all at once. When the attack was over, it fell on its stomach, this time out for good.

Tyson grit his teeth as he looked over Girafarig's wounds. He would need to take it to a pokemon center to get it help. After, if it wanted, he would release it, but now he had no choice but to capture it to get it to safety. Gently, he dropped a pokeball on the hurt pokemon. As it began to wobble, he glanced over at the fallen alpha male. It was strong, and put up a good fight. Before he changed his mind, he quickly threw another pokeball.

"Go!"

Arriving in Orava island

"Boy wake up, come on we are already here for over an hour", A sea person told Sergio, who dozed off out of boredom.
"Mum, 5 minutes okay", Sergio said, still half asleep. "WAKE UP, NOW", the sea person said
Sergio finally woke up, he appologized for calling the seaman his mum and he grabbed his bag put his pokeball on his
belt, which was on a desk near his bed in his dorm room on the ferry, and left.

"Oh, god an hour to late, I am an hour to late but it has his advantages", Sergio said while looking at the cue, there where
no people at all. "Excuse me miss I am here to sign up here is my invitation", Sergio told the woman which was behind the counter.
"You are awfully late, youngster I would hurry up if I were you, here are your pokeball and your pokedex, and this card is to
show to the security, he will take you to the next counter, where there is a door.

Sergio walked to the security and showed the card, the security grabbed it and nodded, he then searched Sergio and saw that he had
only one pokemon. "Come with me", The security said and he guided Sergio to his next destination. "Originally you would have to wait
for mister orava's speech but since you are late you can just walk through that door", The Security said while pointing at the door .

Sergio walked through the door but was again interupted by an security. "You are going to the North-west right, come and
follow me, I am out of duty so I will guide you toward the forest.

After an half an hour they finally got at the forest. "Thank you, sir", Sergio said nicely while waving the man goodbye, right when he wanted
to turn around he saw a pokemon in front of him he grabbed his pokeball and scanned it it was a........

Wurmple

"Okay, my first battle in the orava isles and also my first battle with my newly hatched scyther", Sergio mumbled he looked at the pokemon
and he grabbed for his belt and trew the pokeball on it in the air. "Go scyther, time to battle", Sergio said, out of the pokeball
came a green bug pokemon it looked like a grasshopper, it flew directly into the air waiting for commands of her trainer.

scyther

"Use your quick attack", Sergio commanded his pokemon and he watched how his scyther charged into the wurmple with speed, it flew to a tree
and smashed at it. Right after the wurmple hit the tree she charged at scyther, but scyther dodged it. "Scyther use your vacuum-cut", Sergio ordered
his pokemon. Scyther made a fist and hit wurmple with it, but the wurmple became attached to scyther's fist due to it's vacuum. "Scyther fly up
high in the air and throw it done", Sergio commanded, Scyther flew up in the sky and threw the wurmple down, when down there was only
dust surrounding the wild wurmple, when the sight was covered they saw a knocked out wurmple.

"Good job, scyther you are even a bit stronger than your father", Sergio said praising his pokemon.

They were walking for quite a long time through the forest, scyther was out of his pokeball, just to spare some time for whenever a pokemon would
show up, they looked around and looked at the trees, it was so monotonous that Sergio thought that he was hardly going anywhere untill he

Tyson sighed as the two pokeballs stopped moving, signifying a successful catpure. Gligar held Girafarig's pokeball tenderly as Tyson picked up the Zangoose's pokeball, unaware of the odd looks Gligar, Aron and Snorunt were giving him for having captured their enemy. The other Zangoose, having noiced that their leader was taken, ran off with limps, much to the other pokemon's relief.

"Come on everyone," Tyson ordered as he turned to his pokemon. The teenager felt his brow rise as the flying scorpion held the psychic types pokeball safely. "Come on Gligar," he said, holding up an arm so the poison type could rest on his arm while still holding the pokeball.

"Gli!" Gligar said in thanks as it hopped on the outsretched arm. Giving a small grin to his pokemon, Tyson rushed off, thankful that while they had battle all of those pokemon, the battles had led them closer to the town. He barely even looked at the houses or even how the big or small the town was before bursting into the red and white building that was the pokemon center.

"Nurse Joy!" he barked, causing the pink hairded nurse and the other trainers inside the building to jump.

"Goodness!" she gasped as she held her chest. "What on earth is it?"

"There was huge battle against this Zangoose gang, and my Girfarig is really hurt."

Nurse Joy sighed before gesturing for him to return all of hs pokemon. From the looks of the other trainer's faces, they had fought against the savage gang. "That group... they've caused so much trouble," Nurse Joy said before going a little wide eyed as she looked at the pokeball that housed the unconcious Zangoose. She looked at him briefly before saying, "Please recall your Gligar and have it give me the hurt pokemon."

"Gligar," Tyson said softly as he gave it a small nudge.

Uneasily, the flying scorpion handed the pokeball over before looking at the ground. "Gar..."

"Don't worry about it, Gligar," Nurse Joy said, still a little uneasy with holding onto Zangoose. "We'll have your friend healed in no time. If you would like to be healed as well, please retu..."

"Gar!" Gligar snapped as he shook his head, interrupting the nurse.

She gave a sigh but simply handed him a few bright colored pills. "Eat these, at least. They'll heal you, but not as good as the healing machine. Now please, stay in the waiting room as I bring your Girfarig into the back," she said after scanning the pokemon.

"Is it that bad?" Tyson said with a wince.

"Your pokemon will be in extensive care for the day, but it should be a quick heal," Nurse Joy said with a kind smile. "And before I go, welcome to..."

Paras

"Wow a Paras", Sergio said looking at the mushroom pokemon, "Scyther, leave it unharmed and let's go it is not worth battling"
Scyther nodded and they walked even further, untill they decided to take a rest on the floor, they build a tent and slept in it to
call it a day.

The next morning Sergio woke up and he went outside, when al of the sudden he heard the sound of an acoustic guitar, he went to
his tent, he woke Scyther and he followed the sound of the guitar, he walked through several bushes making sounds as if pokemon
were coming out of the bushes.

"Who is there", The person who was playing guitar asked. Sergio appeared out of the bushes and cleaned his clothes, by whiping his
clothes. "My name is Sergio, I heard you play guitar", Sergio said the person. "Oh, Hello my name is david, yes I am a musician slash
pokemon trainer, and you", David asked Sergio. "I am an quite experienced pokemon trainer", Sergio replied.

"Well since we both are trainers, and our eyes met so it must be time for a battle", David told Sergio looking at him. David had a white
skin colour, with green eyes and blond hair he has a blue jacket and blue jeans with white sneakers. "Yeah, sure it would be a great way
to start a day", Sergio replied.

"Okay, good luck, come on out ponyta", David threw up a pokeball and with a shining white light a gracefull fire pokemon came out.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/b/b0/Spr_3e_077.gif
ponyta
About an hour after birth, its fiery mane and tail grow out, giving it an impressive appearance.


"Wow a ponyta, come on out scyther", Sergio said, he closed his pokedex and threw out scyther.
"Cool, let's commence the battle, ponyta use flame wheel", David said.
"No fair, you started too soon, use quick attack to dodge the attack", Sergio said.

Ponyta was surrounded by flame and ran toward scyther, just when Ponyta was about to hit scyther, it left a white slip-stream behind by
flying upward.

"That was fast, use growl ponyta and after use your flame wheel again", David complimented Scyther and commanded Ponyta.
"Quick attack before it growls", Sergio ordered his scyther.

Scyther left another white slip-stream while flying toward Ponyta, just before it hit ponyta, ponyta growled and scared scyther leaving
scyther open for the flame wheel, again the Ponyta got surrounded by flame and ran toward the scyther which was defenceless,
this attack was super effective.

"Oh no scyther are you alright can you battle", Sergio asked his pokemon and it nodded. "Okay, then use your quick attack to get behind
ponyta and then use vacuum-wave", Sergio told his pokemon
"Use your tackle to finish this battle", David said.

The scyther used it's quick attack and for the third time (yawn) left behind a white slip-stream and got behind ponyta, but Pontya turned around
and tried to charge scyther at full power, but before it got to scyther, scyther created a fist and he hit ponyta, this created an explosion that
made both pokemon slam at a tree in two different directions.

"Okay scyther for the last time quick attack", Sergio told his scyther.
"dodge and use tackle", David said.

Scyther created an slip-stream and quickly ran toward ponyta, a few seconds before scyther would hit ponyta, ponyta charged at scyther, scyther
dodged it in a gracefully manner spinning around and get just underneath ponyta and scyther turned around and slammed into ponyta knocking
it out.

"Ponyta return, great battle that was Sergio, concider me your rival, I'm of to search for the rest point", David said and he walked away.

"That was a nice battle scyther, I hope we will have nicer battles in the future with lots of new friends", Sergio told his scyther, his scyther smiled
at Sergio.

The road to the next town was pretty long, even though both the twon name and the forest name were the same. Kyle was walking alone now, just the way he liked it. But he was not technically alone, because people were passing by the forest to also head where he was going, Maritime Town. But he was walking with nobody by his side, which he wanted because he was antisocial and the quiet type. He was hoping to find something interesting soon, which was possible because on roads and paths, Pokemon can be found lurking along when people can least expect a suprise from one. Kyle was excited to using his Houndour for the first time, but he was told that Houndour had a few moves. Each of them he had no idea what they did, but his dad had told him what they were so he wouldn't have to get confused in a battle when attacking. The town was nearing closer, as the path from the town was not as long as it looked. It was a pretty view, with plenty of green trees and stuff that a garden would have. Nearby, there were people who were fighting Pokemon in the wild. Kyle was intrigued by how they were battling, he smiled. And with a Pokemon like Houndour, Kyle expected good stuff. There was a bit of wind in the weather, and Kyle couldn't tell a rustling bush from having a Pokemon in it or just from the wind blowing. But there was a rustle coming from a bush, one that was pretty big and looked more like a hedge. Kyle was distracted by this, and looked over in hope that it was a Pokemon, as he could tell a battle for the first time was what he would enjoy.

"Well, I guess we're in the next town... Torrent Town," Tyson said with a small frown. With the way his pokemon were hurt, his words sounded bitter on his tongue.

"Gar..." Gligar said with a sigh as it raked its pincer over the water.
They were currently sitting at the beach, enjoying the view of the ocean. Despite the fact that he had been on the island, he had been in only dense forests and high mountains and odd little trails. Now they were simply trying to take in the sights while they waited. Girafarig's deep cut from that attack had hit a nerve, so it would take all of today for her to heel, then she would need a few days to heal. Pokemon were incredible healers, so it wouldn't be too long of a wait.

"Do you like her?" Tyson asked suddenly, turning his face away from Gligar's shocked one.

"G..ggl-li!" Gligar sputtered for a moment, looking completely frazzled before glaring at a laughing Tyson. "Gligar!"

Tyson continued to laugh for a minute before reducing his amusement to soft chuckles. "Sorry, Gligar," he apologized, "but you don't need to be so shy about it." Tyson pressed his face closer to Gligar's. "Was it love at first sight?" he teased.

"Glig gli!" Gligar laughed as it pushed Tyson away with his pincers, being sure to add an extra pinch into his trainer's skin.

"Ow," Tyson complained as he sucked his arm where there was a nice red spot. "At least you got your energy back," he muttered before he grinned and started looking around. "How about a battle to get our minds off things and to use up some pent up energy?"

"Gar gar," Gligar said eagerly as it pinched its pincers together and started looking around. "Gli!" the flying scorpion said eagerly and shot off into the air. It hovered over the ocean, nearer to the deeper part of the water, and looked down.

"What is it?" Tyson asked, trying to peer through the foamy water. The waves were rather rough, which was perfect for surfing or just having fun in the waves, but it was hard to pinpoint a pokemon. That is, until, it jumped high into the air, a fierce expression on its face as it tried to reach a gliding Gligar...

An orange and white fish burst out of the water. The fish had a horn on its head, that was obviously used at its main offensive weapon...
http://pokejungle.net/other/pokepet/Goldeen.gif

Gligar flew over the pokemon with a dejected look. Easily, it pointed its tail and fired a Poison Sting. The roange and white fish let out a loud cry as it flailed about in the water, churning it up and sending up a spray. With an angry glare, Goldeen dove into the water before shooting out, its horn glowing. "Gooold!"

"Glii," Gligar sighed as it simply used the air currents to go higher. With a disgusted look thrown at Tyson, almost as if it were his fault, Gligar dive bombed the water fish, its pincers drawn into an x. "Gliii!" Gligar cried as it smashed its X-Scissor attack into the Goldeen.

"Gol gol," Goldeen cried pitifully as it flopped in the water, seemingly disoriented. "Deen denn," it said continuiously as it began to send circular beams up at Gilgar, but all the flying scorpion did was glide higher up.

Tyson sighed and shook his head with a frown on his face. He really needed to find some stronger opponents. Really, his pokemon were at such high levels, save his two new members and Aron, but all he had found were first stage weaklings on this island. Tyson always assumed that the farther down the road of getting more badges, the stronger the pokemon. After all, this would be his fourth badge or something.

"Gligar, just use Poison Sting!" he called up at the pokemon, watching it fly lazily over the angry Goldeen as it tried to fire more Supersonic attacks.

"Gar!" Gligar called with a miffed face as it dove, pulling up just before it hit the water and skimmed the surface. Eyes glaring, the flying scorpion aimed its sharp tail and let loose. "Garr!" White needles shot out immediately, hitting the water pokemon just as it began to charge in an attempt to Horn Attack Gligar away, but Gligar's attack hit first.

"Goooldeen!" Goldeen cried as its fins beat against the water in a desperate attempt to stay afloat. it wasn't long before it began to sink, and after a moment of waiting, it didn't come back up, signifying it had been defeated.

"Gar," Gligar spat, clearlt irritated with the weak pokemon. Eyes suddenly shifting towards a dark shadow swimming through the water, Gligar aimed its tail and shot another Poison Sting. The shadow stopped moving, and Gligar grinned widely as the shape seemingly turned to face him, "Gar gar," Gligar called, gesturing to the shadow to come out, only to suddenly wish he hadn't as the shadow burst from the water at a monstrous speed and bashed right into him.

"Gligar!" Tyson shouted, watching wide eyed as his pokemon nearly fell into the ocean. Letting out a breath of relief as his pokemon caught himself before falling into the cold water, Tyson turned to the pokemon that attacked back, only to grin just as eagerly as his pokemon as he realized what it was.

@Wolfwhispers:

Congratulations Gligar grew to Level 17

A star shaped pokemon burst out of the water once again, spinning at Gligar. Its main body is a tan color with a gold formation at the center of its front. Inside this gold formation was a red jewel. Gligar managed to move to the side and narrowly avoid the wild pokemons attack...

"Glii," Gligar said in wonder, having never seen such a pokemon before. The star, after landing in the water, began to float lazily over the waves. With interest, Gligar landed on the star. "Gliiig lar liga!" GLigar said animatedly as he pokes the gem.

"Starrr..." the starfish said in a robotic tone. It had obviously given its piece of mind already when Gligar had attacked, but now that the flying scorpion seemed more curious than hostile, there was no point for the water type, that usually remain immoble, to take part in an unneeded battle.

"Glii," Gligar sighed after a minute, finally percieving that the water type didn't want to talk. Jumping off, it landed on a bemused Tyson's arm.

"Wow," he drawled. "What a battle."

"Gli!" Gligar said irritably before pointing towards the pokemon center. Tyson nodded in understanding.

"Right, right. Let's go see if they're all ok."

When the two finally reached the pokemon center, Nurse Joy was already at the front desk, several trays of pokeballs in front of her. "Oh, hello again!" she said cheerfully. "Your pokemon are fine now, but I suggest you let that Girafarig of yours rest a few days before going into battle." The last part was met with a stern look, which Tyson quickly nodded to.

As the pokeballs were handed over, Gligar looked over his trainer's shoulder to peer into the pokeball of Girafarig, a bright smile on its face. "Ga!"

"Alright everybody," Tyson said as he reached a nice, secluded area near the beach, well away from others. "Come on out!"

With a burst of white light, all of Tyson's pokemon appeared, but as soon as they were aware of who was with them, they got onto the defensive, glaring and hissing at Zangoose.

"Zang zagg," Zangoose said with a yawn as it waved them away, obviously thinking it was too good for them to even battle.

Aron simply scoffed and turned away, burying herself in the hot sand. Snorunt blinked in surise before waving excitedly to her new teammate before turning towards a glaring Girafarig. Charmeleon, on the other hand, was already lying on his stomach with a wide yawn. The fire type really didn't care.

"Alright, guys," Tyson said, "Zangoose is gonna be with us now." He was met with shrugs and a glare from Girafarig. Said pokemon turned away in a huff.

"Gar ga lig gli!" Gligar said excitedly as he bounced up and down infront of the pyschic type.

"Griaa," Girafarig said hesitently. All they could do was watch Girafarig turn to the head tail that she had, apparently have a conversation with it, before bowing her head at Gligar and saying, "Gifu."

The large smile that had been on Gligar's face remained frozen for a few minutes. When it became apparent that the flying scorpion was in too much shock to say anything, Girafarig gave them all apologetic looks, save Zangoose which she hissed at, before trotting away, obviously towards the grass path.

Tyson gapped. "Well, I've never released a pokemon like that before," he said slowly.

Gligar's body remained frozen, but the flying scorpion did fall face first into the sand, obviously crushed by her rejection.

Charmeleon and Zangoose on the other hand, were laughing their tails off, even going so far as to roll around and slam the ground with their claws.

"Snoo!" Snorunt admonished them before patting Gligar on the back. "Sno, sno, sno."

"I'm sorry Snorunt," Tyson said, leaning down to his pokemon. "There'll be other fish in the sea, right?"

Gligar looked towards the ocean before giving Tyson a 'What the hell?' kind of look. "Gliii," Gligar said dejectedly as he laid out on the sand.

Tyson scratched his head, unsure of what to do. "How about we just take a break?" he said to his pokemon, even if it was unneeded.

Aron was sound asleep in the sand. Both Zangoose and Charmeleon were playing the alpha act on each other. Snorunt was currently playing in the water and being washed away, only to be brought back to land by a Staryu that was possibly the same one from earlier and Gligar... well, he would live.

"So gym battlle later?" Tyson asked out loud with hope.

He recieved no answer. All his pokemon were too busy doing their own thing.

Name:Kanon (kay-nen) Proscano (pruhs-cah-no)

Gender:Male
APPEARANCE:
Tall for his age.Long brown hair. Has rectangular glasses like the son off American dad, wears graphic tees, and shirts with bands like Queen,Black Sabbath, and Metallica on them, LOVES hoodies, Wears only jeans, nothing like sweats. Is extremely fit. Is Caucasian (white). I don't mean that in a racist way but simply that he's caucasian.

THE NEW HISTORY: A year has gone by since he's been living with Professor Oak. Kanon is now thirteen (13). He's caught every pokemon in Kanto and has his Shinx back. Still a level five from his history in Sinnoh. He has come prepared with many TMs/HMs from Sinnoh. He doesn't have every one but he has quite a few now. Going to the Orava Islands by Oak's Plane gives Kanon one thing to say: "LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!!!" ( READ ORIGINAL HISTORY TOO)

HISTORY:
Kanon Proscano is the child who has no one but his weak Pokemon as a friend.
His father and mother died in a car crash when he was only five. At that age, Kanon had already created a love of books, having been able to read at a 7th grade level. He retained everything he read and throughout his schooling had skipped 5 (individual) grades. Now, when he is supposed to be in 6th grade, he's in, well WAS supposed to be in, 11th grade. The reason he's not in 11th grade is because he had lived with his abusive uncle and an aunt who could care less about him. He ran away during the summer vacation following ninth grade, taking only his pokemon and a few cans of vienna sausage with him. Having lived at home his entire life, the 12 year old's pokemon was still a level five, as it had not fought any thing except it's shadow. He was born in Viridian City, while he lived in Rustboro City until he was 5, then he was taken to Lilycove City to live with his aunt and uncle. He has made it to Route 125 after a miracle happened when his pokemon somehow scared off a FREAKING GIANT Ursaring. He hopes to make it to Rustboro again, or at least make it to the Pokemon Daycare to see if they would take him in. His pokemon was given to him only three days before his parents died. Due to his amount of missed school days, as he had been gone for four months, his aunt and uncle were taken to jail. the Court System and the Government let HIM (Kanon) choose his home. He picked a home in Kanto with Prof. Oak. Oak took away his Shinx, being that it was a Sinnoh Pokemon and Kanon was in Kanto. He gave him a Pidgey, not willing to trade back until Kanon had the Pokedex filled and all 8 Kanto Gym Badges. Once Kanon got the badges and the Pokedex was filled, Kanon traded the Pidgey (which was now a Pidgeot) back for his Shinx.

STARTER:
Lv. 5 Shinx

Age: 12 (13 now)

Personality: Quick to anger, because of his bad past. Usually happy, as long as he has some friends with him. When he has no one with him he feels lonely. VERY,VERY,VERY, Bright. He knows nearly everything about nearly anything (arm nudge). Gets easily excited. Is almost always optimistic about something, even if it was the end of the world. Makes friends quickly due to his usually nice personality. A real bookworm. Has less fun in an arcade than in a library.

Character Name: Keiichi Tomozaku

Gender: Male

Age: 18

Appearance: He stands 5' 5" with dark brown hair and blue-green eyes and a burly 210lbs. He always has a five-o-clock shadow and a tidy, thin mustache. He prefers to wear comfortable jeans and tee-shirts, but he always has on a vest, a blue pokeball motif scarf, and brown loafers. He carries his belongings in a combination duffel bag instead of the traditional backpack.

Personality: Being so big, he grew up being kind and considerate to others, especially his Pokémon. He does however become very defensive whenever someone he's close to is bullied or threatened. He also tends to suffer from bouts of laziness from time to time.

History: The hospitals were full when his mother gave birth to him so he was actually born in a Pokémon Center. The first thing he saw was the Chansey nurse swaddling him, so he's always had a very close connection to all Pokémon. His hometown is the cozy community of Pastoria.

He always loved playing in the Pastoria Great Marsh with all of the other Pokémon, and he always got in for free as he never tried catching them. He always panicked whenever he sank into the marsh, but the Pokémon were there to help him out, strengthening his bond with them.

Preferred Starter: Croagunk, male

How Croagunk was obtained: From a young age, Keiichi always looked up to the Gym Leader, Crasher Wake. One day, he wandered into the Great Marsh to play, and had gotten lost. He called and called for Wake, and attracted the attention of a lone Croagunk. The Croagunk took him by the hand and led him out of the Marsh. Crasher Wake captured the Croagunk as soon as it wandered into the city, but it had developed a bond with Keiichi, so Wake bequeathed the Croagunk to him.

Group Chosen: West Coast Group.
