Cute story. I'd prefer a bit more detail to the writing though :3 I'm not going to correct spelling or detailed grammar here, only point out other things.

This sounds like some text you could put in a signature to advertise your story. Maybe it's not necessary to point out that it's the "intro" in this thread?

Prof.Oak, next door, is looking for you!" Red smiled at his mother, grabbing the umbrella. Red walked out and looked up at the rain during putting up his umbrella. He walked to Oak's lab. Suddenly BASH! "Oops, hehe, that was an accident hehe... I see we're both in a hurry to get to my grandfathers place, huh? Well, gotta rush!" He said, running to the lab.
Text gets more pleasant to read if you start dialogue on a new line.
Also, "Suddenly BASH!"... what? What just happened? Is Red talking and in that case, who is he referring to when he says "both"? You should be careful not to omit important things from the text; if you see the story unfold inside your head, be sure to get it all down in text and not just parts of it! :3

Red" Red stared at the corps of the two Charmanders. "Well... We can't leave these two here.... The only thing is.... Where's there child?"
There's no need to put "Red" in the beginning of every sentence, is there? The sentences sound short and stubby here. Use pronouns a bit more often, and sometimes link sentences together with "and" instead of making several. Makes for a smoother read :3

Also, are they just accepting that two dead Charmanders are laying on the floor all of a sudden? Where did they come from and why did they die? Is this normal in this world or is this something they should really be freaked out about? Think about it.

We can look after you!" The Charmander ran some rocks twists and turns jumping over Rattata's, jumping off Pidgeotto's. Running for his life. Without stopping, running, running like no Pokemon ever has. He will never unsee what he just saw. In front of him. Right there.
I like this part, emotional and colorful. Maybe a bit fun that he's running over Rattatas and Pidgeottos though xD Like they're just laying there and not moving away when a Charmander runs towards them.

He looked back to see a friendly Abra. "Abraaa" The Charmander looked at the Abra. Charmander had a suddenly had a wave of hope. "Char...." he muttered "Char char char!" "Abra" The Charmander told his story to the Abra. "Abra?" "Char.... CHAR!" The Abra said "Lets leave this place. Lets go far from here. Far from the sadness. And go to adventures. Together. As friends!" The Charmander agree'd. So then. There adventure started.
Who said what? This would be less confusing if you began each part of dialogue on a new line.

Abra wen't to get fire wood while Charmander stood guard. Abra came back not long with wood. He layed the wood down in a clean fashion. The Charmander then set the wood on fire. They kept there self warm around the fire.

The Charmander wen't to cuddle up against Abra. They soon fell asleep. "Cubone Cubone!" They opened there eyes to see a Cubone staring at them. "Cubone?" "Abra!" The Cubone hit the bone on the Abra's head "Abra!?" Charmander used Ember on the Cubone! Cubone fainted. "Cuuubone....." Abra and Charmander left to continue there journey in Kanto.
Nice beginning but what happened when the Cubone came? It just hit Abra and Charmander blew fire on it so that it fainted? More details and reason for actions could make this chapter less constricted and more interesting. :3

All in all, an interesting start! Maybe think about the things I said here when writing the next chapter! Mostly, don't forget to write things that are important for someone who reads and doesn't see the story inside their head like you do. :3
