The arbok can talk, has hypnotic powers, and is a sixty foot shiny Arbok with red scales and green spots on his hood.
Dawn and Misty are both 17.
Dawn and Misty had decided they wanted a joint pokemon adoption. The pair were sitting in Dawn’s room talking about what kind of pokemon they should adopt. Misty, although loving water types above all others still had a soft spot for the electric mouse Ash had owned
“How about a Pikachu?" She asked. "They are so cute.”
Dawn thought for a moment but shook her head. “Yeah Pikachu’s are cute, but I was thinking more along the lines of a snake pokemon, like Ekans or Arbok.” Her eyes gleamed a little as she spoke. It was something she'd been thinking about for a while. Misty wasn't so sure. Dawn wasn't with the gang when Jessie had her Arbok so Dawn wouldn't know what the cobra pokemon represented to them. She was afraid. Misty looked at her belt holding Gyarados, another serpent like pokemon she'd once feared. Misty knew that she should get over her fears of all pokemon and the way she'd done so with Gyarados was to own one so it made sense to do the same thing now.
“That sounds cool lets adopt an Arbok!” She said a little too excitedly to cover her nervousness
“Yeah I hear they are really cool.” Dawn said as she clapped her hands together.
“OK lets adopt an ARBOK!!!!” The girls said in unison.
So the Girls drove the 10 and a half miles to the pokemon adoption agency so that they can adopt an Arbok. The agency was a large facility but still managed to feel cramped. It was dark and a little damp in places. Misty was that's where the tanks of water pokemon had leaked but not been cleared up. When the girls arrived at the main reception there was a man in the basic blue uniform of the agency sitting behind the desk he was speaking on the phone about some sort of Rattata problem. When he noticed the girls he ended the conversation and leaned over the desk expectantly.
“Hello do you have any Arbok that can be adopted?” Dawn asked.
“Well hello there you're looking for an Arbok.” He seemed a little surprised in the choice for the pair.
“Yes sir we want to adopt one. Do you have any?” Misty asked.
The manager paused. “I don't think so unless.. let me look in the back.” With that he exited the room.
A few minutes later the manager came back with a pokeball. “Now, girls this is the only one I've got. It's very rare, odd colouring and massive size. It's not going to be cheep to buy or easy to raise at that. Are you sure want this?" What the manager told them just seemed to raise Dawn's excitement. Misty was getting more and more nervous but her pride would be hurt if she pulled out so both girls nodded. "Then this Arbok is yours for 200 pokedollars."
“But we only have 150 pokedollars" Dawn said as she rummaged through her pockets. She turned to her friend. "Misty, we won’t be able to adopt him.” Unsure if she was relived or disappointed Misty just muttered a quick 'oh'. Dawn was very clearly upset and the manager saw it. Most trainers wanted a young or strong pokemon so Arbok wasn't a best seller and it was clear that the girl had her heart set on it. Taking pity he came up with a new deal
“I know I’ll give him to you for 1 hundred, and you can buy supplies with the extra 50 pokedollars.”
"Really?" Dawn asked.
"Yeah." The manager replied.
"Isn't this great Misty?" Dawn asked her friend.
"That's very kind of you sir. Thank you." Misty addressed the manager and grasped the pokeball.
So Dawn and Misty were able to adopt the red Arbok. They took him home and let him Explore for a while. The Arbok was slithering up a tree when Dawn's mother walked out of the house.
"Oh my." She gawped at the massive serpent. “Dawn what is this huge Arbok doing here?”
"Well you and Misty’s mom said we can adopt a pokemon, and we choose this red Arbok." Dawn casually replied. "Isn't he cool, Mom?"
Dawn’s Mother sighed. "I wasn't expecting anything this big but we agreed. OK but I’m not cleaning up after him, young lady that is your responsibility.”
“No need to worry, mom. I understand. We're going to take great care of our new friend right Misty?” Dawn asked.
Misty was still trying to take in the size of the Arbok but nodded in agreement, she'd do her best with this Arbok, it's not like it was a horrible bug pokemon or anything.
