"Yes, I am. I live in this town, but I was going to the Gym to challenge Erika." I answered. So it looked like this guy is interested in the League. He might have potential. But somehow I don't think Dusk realized that Growlithe was rapidly sniffing his Poochyenna. At least she couldn't bite me again for just making a fool out of myself. I think her being distracted gave me confidence.
Speaking of Dusk, that's a strange name. I mean, you would either have to be a vampire fan, a werewolf fan, or just flat-out weird to name your child Dusk. But I'm not going to go any further into that. Starting after this question. And after the answer. Maybe.
"So, is your name really Dusk?" I said, though I seriously questioned saying that. I mean, he might take it the wrong way and think I'm insulting him. Whoops.
Is my name really Dusk? Perhaps. None of his business to be honest, but I wont judge or anything because of one questions. I answer with a simple nod. She also mentions she was intending to challenge Erika of this city. I chuckle a little, knowing inside of me how stupid that sounds, well perhaps for me and my new poocheyena - hang on. I look to my side to see the poocheyena and Aaron's growlithe sniffing each other, something that is, rather strange for my eyes... he doesn't seem to be responding as well though. Well, that's up to him.
"I also come from Celadon, just a bit south of here, but are you honestly going to challenge Erika; I don't mean to be rude but Erkia isn;'t the kind of person you would challenge first. I was thinking about taking down Lt. Surge first, and perhaps catch a few pokémon along the way down. Since you are also planning on taking down the gyms, I honestly would recommend you do the same, or if you want, take a plane to Pewter city and challenge the rock gym there." I think my explanation is enough to convince Aaron to join me in my travels.
I grin a bit, pulling my hands out of my pockets and holding one out to Aaron.
"If you like my little, 'game plan,' then would you care to join me in my travels?"
I shuddered at the memory of watching Erika lead with a Venusaur. "Well, that actually not a bad idea. I'd love to go with you." I thought out loud. At the same time, I was watching Growlithe and Poochyenna playing, pretending not to care. Growlithe finally walked away, but then started pulling Dusk's "tail".
"In case you were interested, there's a man giving away Eggs on 3F of the Department Store." I informed him. There were two reasons I told Dusk that. One, I want to see if they really all are the same species. Two, if they hatch into something strong, I want him to get one, too.
"How about we discuss this more at my place?" I finally asked.
"I would be delighted to," I say gracefully. Aaron gives me directions to go to his home, which is no doubt closer to the city center than mine, and we wave our goodbyes, however these are only momentary goodbyes as I plan to retrieve this egg that Aaron informed me of. Surely as well he wishes to tidy up before allowing me into his abode. I trail myself into the lift, completely forgetting in my excitement of adventure the reason of coming to this store, and press the third floor. Indeed, there stands a man giving away pokémon eggs. Curious things eggs, sometimes the pattern on the egg stands out to you, sometimes it doesn't. Togepi eggs are all the same, with their red and blue triangular patterns. Mine, I can't figure out at all. Hopefully, it will be something unique, however, considering this man is just giving away eggs, it is highly likely Aaron beholds the same species as I.
I leave the store with haste, allowing my wolf like pokémon to run alongside me as I sort of, jog, to the directions Aaron gives me. It takes a while to reach the residence, however I am not disapointed as I soon find my way to the front door. I knock a few times, hoping that Aaron is already in. I wipe the sweat of my forehead due to my jog, and allow my fatigue to restore before my host allows me in.
So then I wrote down the directions to my house, handed them to Dusk, then headed home, calling "See you later!"
Soon, I arrived home. I opened the door and stepped in. That's when I realized; the house was a mess from the party Dad had last night! Somehow I slept through it. Perhaps being mauled by an angry Torterra helps you sleep through anything. Mom was in Saffron for the week, and Dad was the type of guy who didn't care about messes. My mom wouldn't be back for 6 days, so I had to clean up myself.
I found lots of... strange things in the process. Like books. Contests 101, Pokéathlon World Records 1987 (wow, that's old), BattleSim13 Guidebook, BattleSim12 Guidebook, BattleSim11 Guidebook (I was into BattleSim until I started my journey),BattleSim10 Guidebook, and so on, Pokémon Battles 101, and more. I think Dad took everything off my bookshelf last night. It just made me happy I wasn't there. And this was just the living room.
I basically was able to clean the first floor when I heard knocking on the door. It must be him. I thought. Luckily I was washing my hands in the bathroom, (Your hands get dirty when you clean a third of your house, I still needed to do the basement and the second floor, so I figured I should wash up first) which was on the opposite side of the first hallway as the door, so I didn't have to walk very far.
Opening the door, I saw Dusk. "I'm glad you came." I said. "Come on in."

I step into the home of Aaron and am greeted with an average home of sorts - very similar construction to mine. The place is quite neat and tidy, but a lot of things look like they've just been hurled over dust, like in those cartoons when they throw the dust under the mat and theres a large lump. It's highly un-noticeable anyways, so I won't cause a fuss for nothing.
I sit down near to Aaron on a rather comfortable chair. The atmosphere itself is rather, tense. I decide to bring out the egg I recently recieved in order to break any tension that was there.
"I'm not sure what the egg is," I say holding up the egg in front of me, "it's not got a familiar pattern. Anyways, if we are going to travel together we may need some supplies, like perhaps a tent or something? I'm not exactly camper 101, so perhaps you know the ropes of gearing up and such?" I've purposely left out the question to battle, as in truth, I don't wish to battle. Poocheyena hasn't even taken a hit yet, so we need to start off slow. Still thinking on that name for my wolf friend.
"Also, I was wondering, would it be alright if on our journey we stopped at Lavender town for a while?" The question was rather odd to be fair, if we were travelling surely we'd see everything right? True, but I stated for a while, perhaps meaning a few days or something? I actually have unfinished business to attend to there that don't concern dead pokémon, although for now I'll play along with the idea of a lost one, for that way the chances of staying their with Aaron increase by a bit.
Jay quietly sneaked out the backdoor of his house, his parents being distracted by the news. On his way out he gathered some biscuits. “SQUEEEEK” The door squeaks and Jay freezes and holds his break trying his absolute best not to move an inch, expecting his parents to notice him out of bed. He opens his eyes and breathes a sigh of relief and quickly exits the kitchen.
Once Jay was outside, he went over to the neighbouring trees and out of Pallet Town’s view.
He then took a deep breath, “SQUAWK SQUAWK SQUAWK SQUAAAAWK.” Within seconds, a pidgey flew down from the trees and landed on Jay’s lap.
“Didja miss me Pidgey? I brought some more of your favourite biscuits.” Pidgey then gave out a delighted squawk and started to peck at the biscuits in Jay’s hand.
“I turn 12 tomorrow Pidgey, You know what that means? Dad will finally let me go on my very own pokemon adventure. After my birthday party, I’ll come out here and catch you, and we can travel all over Kanto and defeat gym leaders, and one day we will defeat the elite four and become the Champion. And when we become strong enough, we’ll find Red and challenge him to a pokemon battle.” Jay then laid down on his back. Pidgey had finished the crushed biscuits and then flew up and did a loop then landed on Jay’s chest and curled up. Jay and Pidgey closed their eyes and fell asleep.
“YAWN” Jay woke up and stretched. He looked down to his left and pidgey was there asleep. “Good Morning Pidgey.” Pidgey greeted him with a tweet. “It’s My birthday today, I ought to run home now before my parents notice that I’m not in bed.” With that, Jay got up and ran towards Pallet Town. He looked back at pidgey and waved his hand whilst running “Seeya soon Pidgey. I’ll be back with a pokeball.” Pidgey responded with a squawk of happiness then flew in the direction of its nest.
When Jay got back to his house, he had climbed up onto the roof and snuck through the window into his bedroom and was now lying in his bed. “Morning Sunshine, Dad is cooking you a birthday breakfast, come down to the kitchen and eat.” After eating breakfast, Jay’s parents sat him down on the couch. “Jay. Happy Birthday. I got you a Present that will help you on your pokemon journey. Here you go son.” His dad handed him the gift. Jay ripped the wrapping paper off and opened the box. A massive grin appeared on his face. He looked up at his dad and ran over and hugged him. An item fell out of the box. It was a red and white ball, one of ten pokeballs. “Ok honey, sit back down we have one more gift for you. This one is from me, and it too is to help you on your adventure.” She handed over the present to Jay, and just like the last present he ripped of the wrapping paper in seconds. He took off the lid an inside it was a map of the Kanto region, and on the other side it was a map for the Johto region. But what really took his breath away was what was underneath the map. “Whoa” He breathed. “Oh my god, these are the coolest runners I have ever seen, I’m gonna be runnin’ so fast in these, thanks mum.”
“Also this morning, Professor Oak came by Jay and he dropped this off for you, it is to keep a record of all the pokemon you see.” His mother handed the device over to Jay. “It is called a pokedex, the professor would’ve talked to you abouti t but he was busy with his research, he said something about slowpoke and evolution. That man is always so busy.” “I’m going to go ‘nd get changed now into my gear, and then I’m off on my adventure.”
After all the excitement and lunch, Jay was departing his home and Pallet town and to make his way to the next town, Viridian city. “Bye Mum, Bye Dad, I’ll come back after I have defeated 8 gym leaders.” “Ok son, good luck on your adventures, and don’t forget to call us, especially your mother, she will worry about you the most.” “Yes honey, call me every time you reach a city, there is a computer moni-““Yeah I know mum. I will call you on the computer. Geez mom, I haven’t even left yet.” “I know sweetie, I’m just worried about you, you will be all alone.”“No he won’t, he’ll have his pokemon with him. Come inside Janice, the kid will be fine.””I know, but I won’t be.” Janice turned around one more time to look at her son, but he had already gone.
“SQUAWK SQUAWK SQUAWK SQUAAAAWK” Pidgey flew down from the trees. “Pidgey, check out these new shoes mum got for me, and check out this pokedex thing it’s so high te-““Pidgey, the tiny bird pokemon. A common sight in forests and woods, it flaps its wings at ground level to kick up blinding sand. It does not like to fight, it hides in tall grass and trees foraging for small bugs.” Jay just stared at the device in amazement. “Wow, is that stuff all about you?” Pidgey jumped up and gave an affirming chirp. Jay took off his backpack and reached inside and pulled out one of his pokeballs. “You ready Pidgey? This is it. The start of the most awesome-est pokemon adventure ever in Kanto. You ready to tackle the wilderness and the other pokemon?” Pidgey gave a look to express her determination. “Yeah, that’s what I’m talkin’ about. Let’s do this.” Jay then through the pokeball at pidgey. It hit Pidgey and opened. Pidgey turned into a red flash and entered the pokeball. It closed. One shake, second shake, third shake......... *CLICK*. “Alright, let’s go pidgey.” He ran over and picked up the pokeball and attached it his belt and started to make his way to Viridian City.

Moves: tackle and sand attack

"Tch, you are too good. We give up can we just get to the pokemon center up near mount moon?!" Natsu yells.
"Sure, I just wanted to see how strong my pokemon have gotten. My name is Ryu do not forget me I will be seeing you soon!" the man said before sending out a pidgeot and jumping onto it's back and flying off.
"Hmmm that guy was odd, well let's get to Mount Moon!" Tai says.
Natsu nods and the two boys begin to run along the dirt path. They try their best to avoid the wild pokemon because the night was creeping up on them and they didn't want to run into and dangerous pokemon.
"Hmmm, the Pokemon Center is only a ten minute walk away..." Natsu says looking at his pokedex (it includes a messaging feature and a map)
"Okay then let's make the trek to the Pokemon Center!" Tai replies.
* * *
The 2 boys finally make it to the Pokemon Center before throwing their bags at the ground and asking for a room.
"Can we have a place to stay?" Tai asks
"Sorry we are all full but you are welcome to sleep on the chairs in the foyer." Nurse Joy replies.
"Ugh... Okay" Natsu replies.
The 2 boys trail themselves into the foyer and jumping onto a sofa each before drifting off to sleep.
