The boat was getting closer to the dock until the boat finally reached the dock. A voice rang out from the speakers of the boat,“Welcome to Oak Island. Please enjoy your time here.” The ship unloaded its passengers including me and my pokemon. The scent of sea salt flew by me,reminding of the sea breeze of my home, Cherrygrove City. The scent of crispy leaves was also smelt. There was a beach with soft, golden sand, some pebbles,and a few shells. Beyond the sand and onto the next layer of land, there was a luscious golden plain that was yellowing due to the season of autumn. What seems to be a town could be seen far of in the distance over the horizon of the plains.
After I walked off the dock and onto the beach, I decided totake a walk on the beach and my pokemon followed along. The academy could wait a bit for me. I love beaches, they usually reminded me of home, and the adventures I had with my pokemon on the beach. It brings back some memories including splashing water in the ocean with my pokemon and my family when I was about seven years old. I found a nice spot on the beach to sit on. The spot had soft, smooth sand, and was near the high tide waterline. I took out my sketchbook and my pencil, and I started to draw the beach. I scribbled down some details including the rolling waves, the soft sand, beach pokemon, and other people on the beach with their pokemon.
I saw some of the people releasing their pokemon from their pokeballs. I’ve always wondered why people would put their pokemon in pokeballs.Well, I do understand that pokemon would have to be in their pokemons foreasier transportation. I prefer my pokemon to be free as a bird (pun not intended), and not cramped in a pokeball. Unfortunately, my pokemon did not have pokeballs and someone may catch them, and I would probably never see them again. So, I made that buying some pokeballs in the nearby town later the first thing after I leave the beach area.
I continued sketching down my pokemon playing on the beach.Nalafari, my starly, seems to be trying to prank Samuel, my pidgey, by being underwater and suddenly rising from the water to splash Samuel who was near thesmall waves of the ocean. Emil, my swablu, was trying to make a sand castle with the wet sand on the beach, and was decorating the sand castle with berries from my messenger bag. Samuel was walking along the low tide waterline, and showed no emotion when Nalafari splashed water onto Samuel. Geez, sometimes Samuel is too stoic and serious. Samuel began to chase Nalafari down after the splash of water. Perhaps Samuel was not all emotionless.
I took out my watch from my messenger bag and wore it. I decided to check the time on my watch. It has been thirty minutes since I started sketching the beach. I gestured my pokemon to follow me, and took my messenger back and my pokemon’s travel cage. I walked off the beach with my pokemon and onto the plains toward the town over the horizon. The scent of seasalt was starting to fade, and the scent of drying grass could be smelt. I hope my pokemon would not be captured by someone else.
I was perched upon my trainer’s left shoulder with Emil. Now,I would like to perform a soliloquy also known as “breaking the fourth wall” to you humans. I would like to introduce myself as it is not proper to not introduce one’s self to their audience. My name is Samuel also known as Sam. My species is a pidgey, and I do not mind being called frail for being a pidgey.My trainer, James Rybak, is traveling to Oak Island on a boat. I must say that being on this water vessel, also known as a boat in human terms, is rather soothing for me as the sea breezes pass by ruffling my feathers.
I spoke to my peer, a swablu named Emil, “Emil, since we are arriving to Oak Island, Is there any particular plans of what you would like to do? Planning is an excellent way to prepare for the battles we would have ahead of our lives as we are arriving to an area with wild pokemon and pokemon trainers.”
Emil replied, “Well, I’m not sure Sam, I’m not as smart as you are and I am bad at planning. I’m too weak.”
I spoke to Emil, “Emil, you’re not fragile. In fact, I am three levels below you, and you have more defensive moves than Nalafari and Ihave. You’re strong, you’re beautiful, and you can make it through the hardships and obstacles of your life.”
Emil smiled and told me, “Thanks, I’m glad to have awonderful pal like---!”
A voice from the speakers of the boat announced, “Welcome to Oak Island. Please enjoy your time here.” My trainer walked off the boat,and onto the dock while carrying my teammates and I. With my profound visions of my keen eyes, I noticed a beach, plains, and a town ahead of the plains over the horizon. James sat near the high tide waterline of the beach, and let me and my peers to explore the beach.
The beach seemed to be vast as I looked at both directions of the beach. The beach most likely surrounds the island. I decided to walk along the low tide waterline of the beach. The winds are so calm that if I wereto fly, it would be a smooth flight. I continued walking along the beach untilI felt a warm breath near my inner ear, “BOO!”
I was startled by the sound, and turned around to inspect if someone was located in the direction of the reverberation. I suspect that Nalafari is up to his pranks again. I decided to play along with the prank to try to be less emotionless since many suspect that I do not have emotions. Infact, I do have emotions, but my calm nature allows me to be in serenity in most situations and carry out my plans. Suddenly, the sea water had splashed against me.
A voice spoke, “Yo Sammy! I pranked ya again”I turned around to see Nalafari.
“Nalafari, I would prefer it that you use proper language.Pranked is not a word.”
“Well, it is a word in my dictionary.”
“Nalafari, can you please stop it with your devious antics,”I told Nalafari while "pretending" to be angered.
“Ha, I bet you can’t catch me,” said Nalafari as he flew off.
I began to chase Nalafari, and flown off to the direction Nalafari went. Unfortunately, I was unable to catch Nalafari due to Nalafari’s superior speed and increasing velocity. I began to tire as I landed on the sand.
Nalafari flew back to me, walked over to me, and said,“Sammy, that was fun! I’ll prank you again later. Let’s get back to Jay. He’s probably going to freak out if thinks we’ve been captured by someone.”
I responded,”Ah, okay. Yes, we should return back to James.”So, Nalafari and I flew back to the location James was at. I saw Emil building a sand castle, and James gestured to us to follow him. Emil, Nalafari, and I followed James to the plains. I wondered what adventures and others we would meet along the way.
Fricken boo yeah! I’m so fricken excited to get to Oak Island. I’m totally going to become the fastest flying pokemon someday! With more and more practice, I’ll become stronger. I just can’t wait! Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh! The boat is getting closer to Oak Island!
Right now, I’m on top of my trainer, Jay’s head. I love the sea breeze atop there. I spread my wings out to catch the waves of the winds. I can feel it; we’re getting closer and closer to Oak Island. The boat had finally arrived at the dock. A voice from the speakers on the boat rang out loud, “Welcome to Oak Island. Please enjoy your time here.”
I followed my trainer, Jay, off the boat and onto the dock.Then we went to the beach instead of the academy first. Well, at least I could practice my pranks. Hmmmm….who should I practice my pranks on. I rather not practice my pranks on Emi; she’s like my little sister. She’s looks too happy building that sand castle of hers. Maybe I’ll prank her later. Maybe I should try pranking on the other pokemon on the beach, err…no, they are probably higher leveled than I am. Sammy has a lower level than I do and I’m very annoyed by his monologues today. Sam would be the perfect victim for my pranks right now.I’ve got the perfect prank that I’ve practiced into perfection.
Sammy was walking along the low tide waterline. I slowly sneak up behind Sam. Sammy seems to be not notice me while he was walking along the low tide waterline. This is perfect. I moved my beak near one of Sam’s inner ears, and shouted, “BOO!” I quickly jumped in the water before he noticed me. I waited a bit while Sam was distracted, and jumped out of the water to splash him. Then, Sammy turned around to see me.
I spoke, “Yo Sammy! I pranked ya again.”
Sam told me, “Nalafari, I would prefer it that you use proper language. Pranked is not a word.”
Hehehehehehe! Oh Sammy, you silly, smart a. Of course pranked is a word. So, I told him, “Well, it is a word in my dictionary.”
Sam seems to be annoyed by what I said and he responded,“Nalafari, can you please stop it with your devious antics.”
I took some time to think a bit. Devious antics? Oh Sammy,you and your stupid, large vocabulary. You’re nothing compared to me. Sam,you’re weak and fragile. I bet you’ll never catch me at flight. I spoke up as Iprepared for flight, “Ha, I bet you can’t catch me.” I flew off into the distance to the other parts of the beach. Sam also flew off and chased me. After several minutes, Sam was getting tired and landed on the sand. Even though he is the victim of my prank, Sammy is still one of my best friends. I flew over to Sam to check if he’s okay. I wasn’t sure what to say, but I told Sam, “Sammy, that was fun! I’ll prank you again later. Let’s get back to Jay.He’s probably going to freak out if thinks we’ve been captured by someone.”
The pidgey responded,”Ah, okay. Yes, we should return back to James.”
Sam and I flew back to where Jay was. Jay sigaled us and Emil to follow him as we went into the plains. I just still can’t wait to get to the academy, and maybe even fight some wild pokemon along the way.
Today is the day my trainer (James), my best friends I ever had (Nalafari and Samuel), and I would go to the Pokemon Trainer Academy. I wonder what I would learn there. Would I be taking any classes or are the classes only for pokemon trainers? I really miss my friends back at the aviary,but I can’t wait to make some new friends at the academy. The boat was getting closer to Oak Island with every minute.
Right now, I’m on a boat with my trainer and my best friends. I’m perched on Jay’s left arm with Samuel. I decided to preen myself to keep myself clean. While I was preening, Sam asked me something, “Emil,since we are arriving to Oak Island, Is there any particular plans of what you would like to do? Planning is an excellent way to prepare for the battles we would have ahead of our lives as we are arriving to an area with wild pokemon and pokemon trainers.”
I decided to respond with, “Well, I’m not sure Sam, I’m not as smart as you are and I am bad at planning. I’m too weak.” You must wonder why I’m weak. I’m weak because I have mostly defensive moves. I would like to have offensive moves, but I can only know six moves at a time.
Samuel decided to cheer me up and told me,” Emil, you’re not fragile. In fact, I am three levels below you, and you have more defensive moves than Nalafari and I have. You’re strong, you’re beautiful, and you can make it through the hardships and obstacles of your life.”
I felt happy that my friends care about me, and I blushed a bit in happiness. I thanked Sam, “Thanks, I’m glad to have a wonderful pal like-----!”
Suddenly, the speakers of the boat spoke, “Welcome to Oak Island. Please enjoy your time here.” We’re finally on Oak Island. I followed Jay from the boat to the dock on Oak Island. I could see a beautiful beach with shining sand, rolling ocean waves, and roaming grass from the plains near by the beach. I was happy to be here.
I followed my trainer to the beach. I took some wet sand and began to mold the sand into a sand castle using my wings. I don’t mind if I get my wings dirty as long as it’s for art. I added many details onto my sandcastle. I made little windows, a door, tall towers, and marks on the sandcastle to resemble the bricks of the castle. I took some berries from Jay’s messenger bag. I took out an aspear berry, a pecha berry, and a cheri berry. I put the berries on top of one of the towers of the sand castle. The aspear berry represented Samuel because he likes sour foods. The cheri berry represented Nalafari because he likes spicy foods. Also, the last but not least, the pecha berry represented me. I like sweet foods.
I looked up from building my sand castle and saw Sam chasing Nals. They must be having fun. I would like to join them, but I’ll have to finish my sand castle. I still need to make the door knob of the door, patterns on the walls of the sand castle, the other markings for the bricks, and some more windows. I became so focused on making the sand castle that the time went by so quickly. My trainer, Jay gestured to me to follow him. Sam and Nals were back and followed Jay as well. Together, we went into the plains towards a town. I’m glad to be on this trip.
