I don't know where this idea came from, I just thought I'd be a unique way to add some discord. No life, no matter how different from the old life one had before, can be all perfect. I might have gotten too descriptive, though... I think I gave him too much emotion in too short of a time period.

Day 5

Morning activities, morning activities, and back to what really matters.

Entering back into Saffron, we gathered a little intel from the plain idiotic Team Rocket grunts everywhere. They said something about the Silph Co building and such. We went to check out what kind of guards were keeping it blocked off. Turns out the guy was asleep. Very skilled.

Since this is a long story that involved a lot of the same things...

TL;DR Time:
-Entered the tallest building I'd ever seen
-Climbed up the first set of stairs
-Beat all the Rocket grunts
-Lather, Rinse, Repeat
-Stumbled around on the teleporters
-Found some sort of key
-Ran into Jack (it figures that he's here)
-Royally whooped his assets
-Reached the Team Rocket leader, whose name we didn't catch last time
-Introduced himself as Giovanni
-He basically told us to butt out or else enter a world of pain
-Then he gave us no chance to leave and attacked right away

It should've been an easy battle. But his first Pokémon was one I recognized. Not just in appearance; though it was a Nidorino. It was the exact Nidorino that was a part of the group I used to live with. The Nidorino who used to play fight with me. The Nidorino who bailed me out of trouble. The Nidorino who comforted me when my mother died...

I tried to speak reason to him, but something had changed in his heart and mind. He spoke hardly a word other than "Come on, attack me!" or "Fight back!" He would keep attacking at me, doing some minor damage, but I refused to hurt him. Wingman was shouting at me; Giovanni was watching the whole event with a knowing smirk.

With every hit he got in, a felt myself closer to tears. Not from the pain; I have had enough experience with physical pain to be able to handle it. The tears were forming from seeing my best friend like this. He kept stabbing and scratching, and, slowly but surely, the tears began to drip down in zigzagging lines.

I was finally forced to beat him down, but I felt horrible about it. The tears were uncontrollable by then; I barely remember what it looked like. He charged at me once more, and I vaguely remember swinging my arm into his face with full force. I heard a horrible crunching sound, and my heart fell to the basement of the building. I closed my eyes and looked away, and Wingman saw the tears pouring down for the first time during that whole event.

The rest of the battle was normal - though he did have a Nidoqueen, it didn't affect me because I didn't recognize it - but my mind wasn't in it. Wingman told me what to do, though his voice sounded softer, as if he was in a different room. The tears eventually stopped, but the pain didn't follow suit. I was still thinking about that one Nidorino who used to be so familiar and was now so different...

The rest of the day was kind of a haze for me. I couldn't get him off my mind. I was still able to fight, I know that much; I took down the Gym Leader in Saffron later that same day. But I wasn't paying attention to how it happened - I just know that it did.

That night, Wingman and I were supposed to fly back to his hometown to visit his mom and head off to Cinnabar Island. He started walking out of the city towards the south, and I would've noticed that he wasn't preparing to fly if I wasn't so depressed. I just trudged behind him, my head down and my tail dragging behind me.

He stopped abruptly. I about ran into him, but he said my name, causing me to focus and stop myself. "Titan..." He paused. "There's something wrong, isn't there."

I stood there, keeping my eyes focused on the dirt.

Without warning, he spun around to face me and said, "I know there's something up with you; you've been like this ever since we beat Giovanni." I turned away from him so that he couldn't see my eyes. But he just got in front of me again and demanded me to look at him.

Again, I turned away.

He sighed audibly, as if he'd given up. "Titan, I saw you crying after you knocked out Giovanni's Nidorino."

I cringed. That phrase, 'Giovanni's Nidorino', was like feeling a spike being driven through my heart. I couldn't stop myself; I broke down then and there. I fell to the ground, sobbing like a sissy, and Wingman saw the whole thing. I felt so ashamed of myself; any self respect I had was gone at that instant, and I was sure I had lost all of Wingman's respect as well.

I can't remember anything else from that point, only that I fell asleep with tears still in my eyes.

Day 6

I woke up slowly this morning. I couldn't recall anything of last night other than breaking down into tears at the phrase 'Giovanni's Nidorino'. Then I remembered what happened yesterday, and the depression hit me again like a fifty ton weight.

I shifted a bit and felt something against my back. Looking up and over my shoulder, I saw him. Wingman was asleep, lying against me, his hand on my shoulder. There was no fire, his mat was still rolled up; he had fallen asleep trying to comfort me.

He stirred as I shifted around a little more. Slowly, he woke up and opened his eyes. I didn't look away from him this time. He looked around a bit and his eyes finally rested on mine. I expected a look of sorrow; instead, he looked concerned about me. Only a few others had ever been concerned about me: my mom, and Doku, the Nidorino.

That shook me a bit. Wingman cared that much about me to forgo sleep in order to comfort me. And all I was doing was giving him reason to worry about me. But I couldn't just get over Doku and how he had changed so drastically right away. It would take time, but I told myself that I'd do it for Wingman; if Doku had forgotten about me and become the horrible thing that he was, I had to learn to accept it.

Stretching myself out, I sat up slowly, causing Wingman to get up as well. I looked at him and gave a solemn nod, trying to tell him that I was feeling better. He smiled weakly and patted my shoulder. Then he fell back suddenly.

Shocked, I got up and checked on him, only to find that he was asleep. I decided that he needed sleep and let him lie.

While I waited for him to wake up, I studied his map and saw that Cinnabar Island was quite a distance from Pallet Town; I'd have to carry him safely that far. In the water. The thing that I'm terrified of. But I knew I had to do it, so I sucked it up and decided that I'd learn to swim.

There was a shallow pond nearby, so I did my best to carry Wingman closer to it without waking him. The next few hours went something like this:

I approached the water.

I started to doubt myself and returned.

I regained confidence and went back to the shore.

I lost confidence and came back.

That went on for about an hour until, finally, I, very slowly and cautiously, slid into the water. When it didn't kill me, I went a bit further. A few moments later, I was waist deep in the water.

Don't get me wrong, I was scared sh**less. But I kept reminding myself of what Wingman did for me and didn't give up. At first, I splashed around, completely clueless about what to do. Then I saw a Squirtle pass by, and I copied his motions. Soon enough, I was actually making my way around the pond's edge.

Wingman woke up at this point and saw me swimming around. He shouted out my name, and I turned to him and beamed.

Of course, when I turned, I lost my balance and I slipped under the water. I was so disoriented that I couldn't tell up from down. The water may have been shallow, but it was deepest here; the distance between the bed and the surface was more than my height.

Suddenly, an arm reached out and hoisted me in some direction that I later figured out was up. I broke the surface and breathed a sweet breath of safety. I floated there and looked around to find Wingman, still in all of his clothes, floating next to me. He smiled, and I returned the gesture.

Back on shore, Wingman changed himself and we left for Pallet Town.

Day 7

We had arrived in Pallet the afternoon before and spent a day there and left the next morning for Cinnabar Island. I was nervous at first, but after Wingman's encouragement, I jumped into the water. He climbed on my back and I started swimming.

We actually made it all the way to Cinnabar with no problems. Wingman was so proud of me, and my cheeks flushed red. Secretly, I was thrilled for myself.

Wingman told me he had a special treat for me because of how well I did. I became overly excited, expecting some awesome snack or a day off; he pulled out a TM and pressed it right to my head without me even noticing him.

And just like that, I learned Earthquake, the best Ground type move ever. Sweet.

TL;DR Happy Fun Tiems!
-Entered the Gym
-Wingman answered a bunch of random quiz questions that he had to get all right in order to face the Leader
-Wingman aced the quiz and Blaine accepted our challenge
-What a beastin' Gym stadium, an island of rock on a lake of magma
-Thank Mew for learning Earthquake when I did
-None of Blaine's Pokémon could avoid it, and every time I used it, nobody could one hit
-Wingman earned the Volcano Badge
-Healed up (though I didn't need it, I didn't take any hits during the battle)
-Flew to Viridian City for the night
-Camped out on the route where Wingman first found me

Being back to my old home brought on such a wave of nostalgia. I remembered the group of Nidoran♂ and Nidoran♀ and Nidorino and Nidorina that I used to live with, and I remembered the good times I had here.

Unfortunately, that brought back the thought of Doku... I told myself that I wouldn't think of him as the Pokémon of a horrible person; the memories of him were a much better thing to remember. Those times were too good to ruin.

I fell asleep remembering those times with Doku. I started to miss him more and more.

That night, I dreamt of the times we used to share.

Day 8

What a doozie of a day. We woke up - both Wingman and I - exceptionally early. It was about 7:30 in the morning, and we usually don't get up until 9:00. But an early start meant a more productive day.

We re-entered Viridian City and waited for the Gym to open, and Wingman started chatting with the other trainers in line behind us. I got together with their Pokémon and we talked about our journeys. Some of them were from way out of the region, places that I hadn't ever heard of. I felt like a local hick; in retrospect, I realize that I was a local hick, in a sense.

Finally, the Gym was opened, and the two people in front of us - apparently this was a very well known Gym, for both its mysterious Leader and his rumored level of extreme skill - took their turns in the Gym. Neither came out victorious.

That got me a little apprehensive, but Wingman reassured me and we entered when it came our turn.

The whole Gym was one room, dimly lit by a few hanging light bulbs. There was one elevated platform for Wingman to stand on and I took my place on the field. The Leader was shrouded in shadows and had his back to us.

He spoke. "Ah, I should have known I'd see you two again." His voice sent chills down my spine. I recognized it; even before he turned around and showed his face.

The Gym Leader was Giovanni.

That meant I'd have to see Doku again...

Luckily, Doku wasn't his first Pokémon. He was his last. He was just the same as he was last time. He didn't recognize me, he didn't say anything; he only attacked. And I still couldn't get through to him. I started to feel the tears building up...

I couldn't hurt him again. He was always there for me whenever I needed him. He's the one other Pokémon that ever cared for me. He and I are best friends...

No. He and I WERE best friends. But he's not him anymore. That Pokémon isn't Doku anymore. He may still have the name and the face, but the soul and mind inside is not Doku's.

I grew angry. Angry at Doku for letting himself become this, at Giovanni for turning him into it, and at myself for not being there to stop it. I roared out in rage and let myself loose. I pummeled Doku with the strongest Earthquake I could muster. He was out right there.

But I couldn't stop myself; the rage was too much. I looked at Giovanni, and he must have known he went too far because his silent look of defeat changed instantly to fear. I roared once more, giving in to the hatred, and charged straight for Giovanni's platform. I crashed into it, sending Giovanni flying back and reducing the platform to rubble.

I roared again, agony mixing with pain, and stared at Giovanni. He looked up and flushed white. The only thought running through my head was 'Giovanni did this.' I ran at him and lifted him up into the air by the collar of his shirt. His back was up against the wall; no amount of his flailing would make me drop him, as he soon realized.

Right as I pulled back my arm to smash Giovanni's head all over the wall, I heard Wingman shouting out my name. His voice echoed all over the room and caught my attention. Keeping Giovanni pinned against the wall, I looked back at Wingman. He was running at me at full speed. I dismissed him; my mind was too focused on Giovanni.

Returning my gaze to the man in my grasp, I pulled back my arm even further, preparing to give him all the justice he deserved. Suddenly, right as I started to swing, Wingman reached me and grabbed my arm shouting, "Titan, stop it! It's not worth it, let him go!" He was certainly not strong enough to keep me from hitting Giovanni, but my arm stopped none-the-less. Hearing the concern in his voice caused me to regain my senses.

I looked at Giovanni again, who was staring at me fearfully. I knew he was ruined; he was ruined from the moment I picked him up. In the corner of my eye, Wingman nodded, and I looked away from both of them. Depositing Giovanni roughly on the floor, I walked away slowly. Wingman followed shortly after, and we left the Gym.

As I walked through the crowd of curious people, they stepped aside. I could tell that they were brought here after hearing my roars, as they all looked at me timidly. Wingman was a few steps behind me, telling everyone that the Gym was closed for now. He protected Giovanni's identity; I would've exposed it in a heartbeat.

I walked out to my old home and sat on the log that Doku and I used to play on. Wingman joined me. He didn't keep his distance, instead choosing to sit right next to me. We sat in silence for a few moments, and then he spoke.

"That Nidoking... you knew him, didn't you." I nodded.

Wingman nodded as well, leaving it at that. No more words were spoken; that was all that needed to be said.

I don't know how many hours passed before Wingman said anything else. When he finally spoke again, he asked me, "Are you gonna be OK, Titan?" I didn't answer.

He suddenly stood up, and I looked up at him. "I understand if you want to be alone for a while. I know what you're going through. I don't tell anyone this, but you deserve to know." He turned away slightly. "I... I lost my dad when I was 7. He just up and left without any notice. But I survived." He walked away, never looking back at me.

I sat there on that log, thinking for a few more hours. Coming to a decision, I stood up and went to find Wingman. It wasn't that hard; luckily, he was still nearby, gathering firewood. He heard me approach and looked up. I smiled weakly, and he did too. He returned to the firewood, and I joined him.

Day 9

Might as well have been National Participate-in-Lots-of-Tough-Battles Day.

After I regained my senses yesterday and rejoined Wingman, we set up the rest of camp and stared up at the stars. He pointed out shapes that they made and I did some more thinking. We fell asleep like this.

The next morning started at its usual time with its usual routine. We were heading to Indigo Plateau after a long couple of days.

On the way to the gatehouse, that jerk Jack stopped us again and challenged us to another rematch. Because he didn't learn his lesson the first four times.

All of his Pokémon were the same as last time, and they were just as easy to beat. I think he actually got easier to beat. Or maybe I just got a lot stronger.

Anyways, even after the loss he still thought he had what it takes to beat the Elite Four. I scoffed silently, and Wingman just nodded. As he walked away, Wingman said, "Poor, poor fool." I chuckled.

We reached the gate quickly enough and passed through without a problem. On the other side was Victory Road, which was less of a road and more of a puzzle-filled maze.

After pushing around boulders and easily beating some trainers, Wingman and I exited Victory Road about an hour and a half after we entered it. The sun was high in the sky, and it was hot. The kind of burn an omelet on the sidewalk hot.

Luckily, we were heading inside. Indigo Plateau was right in front of us, and nothing was gonna stop us now.

In the building, a few trainers were sitting with their Pokémon, giving pep talks and relaxing before the final battles. But I didn't want to wait any longer; I was ready now, and Wingman could tell. We went straight to the registration counter and Wingman talked to the lady there. She was obviously uninterested, tired of the monotony of work. She surveyed us with her flat eyes and, when she had seen all she needed, dismissed our arrival with a pop of her gum.

Looking up and sighing, she asked, "Name please."

"Wingman."

"Age?"

"Seventeen."

"Number of Pokémon?"

"One."

A pause, followed by laughter. "Only one? This shouldn't take long." She turned to the group of trainers waiting and shouted out, "Hey, this kid's only got one Pokémon, do you guys mind if he cuts in front of you?"

All the trainers burst out in laughter and unanimously agreed. I felt my face burning and was about to roar, but Wingman put his hand on my shoulder. "Don't let 'em get to you. We'll prove 'em wrong later," he said. I calmed down, but I was still a little bothered by their reactions. As we were leaving the room, I hit a sprinkler with a mini-Thunderbolt, causing all the sprinklers to activate and drench the trainers and Pokémon.

I chuckled. Wingman smirked knowingly.

A pier on a little pool of water was the setting in the first room. Ice chunks floated here and there, and the temperature was pretty low. Here there was a woman, around her thirties I guessed, who called herself Lorelei and claimed to use Ice types. All but one of her Pokémon were part Water type, and one wasn't even part Ice type. Thunderbolt worked wonders during the whole battle, and Rock Slide took care of the final Pokémon, Jynx.

The next room was scattered with rocks and boulders of all sizes. An overly toned man waited there for us. He introduced himself as Bruno and gave some motivational speech that I didn't pay attention to. I was just eager for battle. He used the Fighting type, with two random Onix thrown in there. It was too easy, Surf on everything. Seriously, though, I still have to wonder where the hell I'm getting the water from.

Room number three was set up like a giant graveyard, with tombstones everywhere and a fog clouding the air. The person here was an old woman, and in the setting, I mistook her for a ghost. Ironically, she used Ghost type Pokémon, with a few Poison types mixed in. Thunderbolt didn't let me down, and this fight passed by smoothly.

The final room was simple; only a hall with a couple of dragon statues lining the sides. The Champion stood at the end of the hall, adorned in a black cape. He called himself Lance and talked about the legendary might of Dragon types. I suddenly understood the dragon statues everywhere; the poor guy had a dragon obsession. He even used Dragon types and dragon-like Pokémon. A Gyarados (down after Thunderbolt), two Dragonairs (both taken down by Earthquake), an Aerodactyl (Surf doused it easily), and a Dragonite (a Rock Slide right to the face put it down and out).

Lance was about to tell us that we were awesome and that we were the new League Champs, but then he mentioned that one more trainer waited who had beaten the Elite Four only minutes ago. I thought 'Oh great, more battling' until he told us his name: Jack. I laughed loudly. We beat him so easily before, what would make now any different?

Nothing, in fact, made this fight any different. The room was unadorned, and Jack stood in its center. He spoke useless junk about how he 'scoured the region' collecting the most powerful Pokémon. I guess he missed me.

I swear, this fight went easier than any of the previous ones. The only Pokémon that gave me any trouble was his Alakazam and Psychic, but I took the hit in stride, not faltering for one moment.

Jack started to whine and cry about losing when some old dude showed up. I recognized him to be that one guy Wingman got a video call from that one day. He scolded Jack and congratulated us. We were led back into a separate room and photographed for posterity.

And that was it! Wingman had reached his ultimate goal, and I had become stronger beyond words. I wonder what those jerks back in the main room will think of us now.

But for now, it's time we relaxed and unwound... or is it?

Congratulations to both of you for finishing the first leg.

Wingman- Your stories are awesome. I wish I could write like you.
stargate- I completely understand using that name. At least it isn't stupid, like mine. A long time ago, I just wanted to play the beginning of blue version. So, I went through the beginning, pressing A as fast as I could. Well lucky me, I ended up naming myself A. And then I ended up catching all 150 Pokemon on that game, and A stuck from then on.

@myrrhman: Thank you very much! I have been practicing my writing with this story, in a sort of preparation for a novel idea I have.

Day 12

I'm small again...

Just thought I'd get that out before I start. And if it made no sense, it shouldn't.

Explanation starts now: Wingman and I were the champs for a few days when Lance mentioned a place called Johto to us. Neither of us had ever heard of such a place. He said there was a whole magnet train system between the two, and one end was in Saffron. We had no idea where anything was in Saffron, so it made sense why we missed it.

He told us that there was an easy way to get there that was just south of here. And he mentioned more Gyms and the chance to be the first champ of both regions. That piqued both of our interests.

So off we went. The Kanto Elite Four was temporary closed for our absence and we left on the next boat to Johto. We landed in New Bark Town, which was very similar to Pallet.

But before we could go anywhere, some official men stopped us and told us that Wingman would have to leave me here or make me go through some extensive process that would "strip me of my power and return me to the way he found me". It sounded painful, but I didn't want to be without Wingman.

He looked conflicted, but I knew what I wanted to do. When he was trying to balance the options, I placed my paw on his shoulder and nodded at him when he looked. He nodded in return, and I went with the men.

They led me to some chamber and hooked me into a machine. Suddenly, a jolt ran through my body - not unlike the feeling I got when Wingman used a TM on me - and after a few seconds, it was all over. I opened my eyes and saw that I was a tiny Nidoran♂ all over again. I couldn't even remember Horn Attack...

But not all was lost, for Wingman helped me train some more after the process. It took just as long as it did before, even with the battle experiences I had. I kept going, though, and eventually I started to improve.

Going off the map that Wingman got in New Bark Town, we headed to Violet City, the nearest place with a Gym. On the way there, we got stopped by who I will henceforth refer to as the red-headed stepchild. He was the worst kind of person, even worse than Jack. And he had definite problems when it came to how he treated his Pokémon. And the way he treated it after we won was even worse than that. It was like a red-headed stepchild abusing its red-headed stepchild. Paradox? Maybe.

He said his name was Greg, and told us to remember it because he said he'd one day be the best trainer ever. Not while Wingman and I are still alive.

TL;DR - The new black!
-Arrived in Cherrygrove
-Left Cherrygrove (there was absolutely nothing to do there)
-Traveled north
-Beat some trainers
-Arrived in Violet City
-Heard about a place called the Sprout Tower that I had to go to before I could enter the Gym
-Went there and found a LOAD BEARING pillar that was SWAYING (how the hell does that work?)
-Climbed to the top
-Found the red-headed stepchild at the top
-Battled the elder
-Got his approval
-Entered the Gym
-Met up with Falkner, the Gym Leader
-Battled his relatively easy to beat birds
-Won handily!
-Evolution took place! WOOHOO! I'm not as small as I was! Though I still am smaller than I used to be...
-Wingman received the Zephyr Badge

And after that, we left Violet City. We were supposed to go to Goldenrod to the west, but some strange dancing tree was blocking the way. Already some of the things Johto has are freaking me out. Swaying pillars, dancing trees... what's next? People cutting off the tails of Slowpokes for food?

Anyway, we set up camp for the night somewhere south of Violet City. It was getting late, and we had a big trip ahead of us tomorrow.

Congratulations to both of you for finishing the first leg.

Wingman- Your stories are awesome. I wish I could write like you.
stargate- I completely understand using that name. At least it isn't stupid, like mine. A long time ago, I just wanted to play the beginning of blue version. So, I went through the beginning, pressing A as fast as I could. Well lucky me, I ended up naming myself A. And then I ended up catching all 150 Pokemon on that game, and A stuck from then on.
Teehee Aneken comes from something similar to that, When I got my game I had just watched star wars and went to play the game, not being to inventive I went with "Aneken"(Aneken skywalker didn't fit and I'm glad it didn't) thus I was born...

Anyway I'm currently in Olivine, didn't get much done yesterday cause of Mortys annoying Gengar which was able to very nearly KO my Kabuto with shadow ball, it took bout 10 times to beat him XD. Anyway I'll post up a log when I get the chance.

Day 13

I woke up early today. I'm not sure why, but it just happened. Maybe I was meant to see it, maybe not, but right as I opened my eyes, I saw a huge rainbow stretching across the sky. I took it as a sign of a great day ahead.

Looking around, I saw Wingman was still asleep. I decided I'd play the smallest of pranks on him. He was lying on his back, sprawled out like a tree's branches. Slowly and making as little noise, I crept back so as to get a good running start. Then I launched myself forward and, when I was close enough, up into the air. I landed square on Wingman's body.

"OOF!" he exhaled as he sat up suddenly. I tumbled into his lap, and he looked around for the perpetrator of his peaceful sleep. When he looked down, I smiled as cheesily as possible, and he sighed and shook his head. "What am I going to do with you?" he asked no one in particular, chuckling. I just kept smiling.

I think this next part calls for TL;DR.
-Traveled a long ways south
-Reached a conveniently placed PokéCenter
-Found a guy selling, of all things, SLOWPOKE TAILS. What the hell.
-Entered Union Cave
-Stumbled around a bit
-Exited the other side
-Shortly after that, we entered Azalea Town
-Found a guy in a dark suit guarding a well (why? I had no clue at the time. Also; his uniform was oddly familiar...)
-Found more people like that in Azalea Town and realized that it was Team Rocket

I don't know about you, but I thought that they would have disbanded after I nearly beat the pulp out of Giovanni... ugh. Even thinking about him made my guts twist.

A little later, we met a guy named Kurt who told us that Team Rocket was cutting the tails off of Slowpokes in the well and selling them to make money. Now we knew why that Team Rocket guy was standing in front of it.

Kurt, Wingman and I ran to the well and Kurt knocked the guy down it. Unfortunately, Kurt fell down the well as well. (Hehe, pun.) Wingman and I quickly and cautiously climbed down to see if he was OK. Unfortunately, he had thrown out his back. Wingman called for help and had him hoisted out while we went in to face Team Rocket.

They were all grunts, so they were easy to beat. Even the leader of the mission was simple to beat. After I kicked all their butts, they took off like sissy girls running from a bumblebee.

With Team Rocket gone, we checked on Kurt, who was recovering well. His chiropractor was a miracle worker, according to him, and he'd be able to do everything he used to in no time. With that done, the Gym was our last destination.

The Gym was as simple as an indoor forest. Bushes and plants were scattered here and there, and a huge tree was in the center. The Leader, Bugsy, welcomed us. He didn't seem much older than Wingman. The two of them chatted a bit, and then the obvious questioned was answered. Bugsy agreed to the challenge and the battle began.

This fight was easy for about half of it; two of his Pokémon were cocoons. Then he brought out his Scyther. It was a little harder from that point on. It was a quick thing, and it kept flitting around, evading my attacks. Eventually, though, I concentrated hard enough and figured out its pattern. I hit it square in the chest a few seconds later.

Now Wingman had two badges, and I was getting better and better again. I had already evolved once; all that was left was to find a Moon Stone. And I was really eager for that.

As we started to leave town towards Goldenrod, we were stopped by Greg. He was as much of a jerk as before, and he demanded a battle. He never gave us a chance to refuse; his first Pokémon was already out and it launched itself at Wingman. I jumped in front of him to intercept it, but it was a Gastly and it phased right through me and bit Wingman on the shoulder.

I heard him shout out in pain, and I must've gone berserk, because after that, I have no memory of what happened. I faintly remember a battle, but nothing else. After I regained my senses, Greg was gone, and Wingman was holding his shoulder. I could see the blood soaking through the shirt. The pained look on his face was almost too much to bear. He managed to mumble, "Get help," through clenched teeth, and I was off like a dart. I found the nearest person and dragged her to where Wingman was. He was keeping himself sitting upright, still gripping the bite wound.

The girl and I were able to carry him to the hospital and get some professional help. They wrapped his shoulder up in a large bandage and ran some tests when they found out that a Gastly had bit him. Unfortunately, he had been poisoned by the Gastly's bite and had to have a special treatment to get the poison out.

Everything did go according to plan, but he would have to wear a bandage for a few more days until the wound healed. He would need someone to help him with that, and when she asked if he knew anyone who would like to, the girl who helped me volunteered.

She wasn't even in the room until now. She walked up to the nurse. When she asked how she was related to Wingman, she replied that she was his cousin. I didn't know whether to believe it or not; the chances of me finding Wingman's cousin were so slim, but she was saying it as if she really was his cousin.

So the nurse gave her a sheet to fill out and left the room. I looked up at her as she sat down, and when the nurse was out of earshot, she whispered to me, "I'm not really his cousin, sorry to confuse you." I nodded and she began filling out the form. She pulled out Wingman's wallet for some of his information, but she made up everything else.

The nurse came in later and collected the paperwork, Wingman woke up, and the three of us were released from the hospital. Wingman was able to walk, but his whole right arm was numb from the detoxification process, and it wouldn't start to function properly again for another week.

When the girl kept following us, Wingman questioned her. She told him that he'd need someone to help him with the bandages, and she volunteered. Wingman looked at me for confirmation, and I nodded.

"OK, I understand why," Wingman said, "but tell me. Who the heck are you?"

"I'm Caroline. Nice to meet you."

I will resume my Zigzagoon challenge, and TRY (emphasis) to make it a story.

Z chapter 1.
I've always known since I was in our pack, that I was the strongest. Sure, people may look down on me, but Im stronger than they think. I am not just a Zigzagoon, I am Z. I will conquer.

Today some pathetic loser (was his name Wally?) asked me to show him how to catch a pokemon. really? a 5 year old knows how to catch a pokemon. So I threw a pokeball at him, told him to throw it at that Ralts. Whoop de doo. he did it. When i was done with this massive waste of time, I went to the Petalburg woods, where I got ambushed by some guy asking me where the Shroomish are. Maybe if you looked over there... Oh. A Team Aqua grunt. And of course the guy cowered behind me. Oh how I would love to just walk away. But I like fighting. So yes I killed his Poochyena at lv 9, while i was at lv 9. in one hit. ehh.

So I arrived in Rustboro. there isnt anything here, except for a gym. I hear gyms can make me tougher, but I just dont like rock types. I wish I had some better moves. I guess I could use Sand-Attack spam, then Tail Whip spam. Ill try it. Got flattened as expected. I whipped geodude with my tail, but geodude constantly and I DO MEAN CONSTANTLY used Defense curl. So much for Tail Whip spam. Sand-Attack works, but Every one of my hits do like 1 damage. After a massive concussion and a Pokemon center visit, I decided it was time for training.
(how do you like my story?)

I totally forgot I was in the middle of a 3rd Gen Solo run with Mankey.
Ugh, I restarted my Emerald game and beat it with Primeape ending up at level 89 post-E4.
I then fought the E4 over and over until leve 100.
I don't want that to be added to the champions though, because I cannot provide proof.

I will however be starting a Mankey solo run on Crystal, and since I've already finished a solo run with Mankey on RBY, can I switch it to an ultimate solo run challenge?

Either way:
Game - Crystal
Name - institutions / Andrew
Pokemon - Snargles (Mankey/Primeape)

I feel like trying out an Ultimate Jumpluff Solo challenge.
FR->Crystal->Emerald->Diamond it is.

...mind if I somehow cheat myself around the phase before Tackle? Like starting at the level where Hoppip learns Tackle instead of level 5? Because I'm not a fan of Struggle grinding.Disregard that, I'm starting with 'pluff. Because National Dex. And because Jumpluff starts with Tackle, no such action is needed. So all I did was some Pokedex shenanigans and making myself the whole HM thing somewhat easier.


Alright, update. With screenshots because everone totally cares.
Spoiler:


Why does the main character always have to wear a hat...

...but the rival (except for May/Brendan who don't count here anyways) doesn't?

I always wanted a Bulbasaur, they're so easy to raise. At least if you call Jumpluff Bulbasaur.

unfair advantages

Weedles in Viridian Forest gave me some problems, but weirdly after I bought these Antidotes, I didn't get poisoned once anymore.

Poison Powder+spam random stuff, with the occassional Synthesis here and there=easy win.

ZOMBIE JUMPLUFF (I actually edited Jumpluff's Pokedex entry into some zombie stuff that was intended to be funny but wasn't, but it never showed up. Damned National Dex requirement...) at this point. I accidentally didn't get Sleep Powder, but Poison is a better option anyways - for now. Later, I'm probably going to regret this.

-Fought Erika, strangely this battle took 20mins I beat her first 3 pokes with ease but her bellosom was only taking 1/3 damage from aurora beam and was able to KO me in 1 hit with giga drain, so I kept stalling(using revives) until she ran out of pp on it then she started using solarbeam so I did the same thing with a couple hits in(she would just use a max potion though -.- which she used 2 of) then after I though it was finally finished she started using synthesis..... This battle really made my day, not.



Should be finished soon, but seen as I find SS a little bit boring(hence why I did it last, last time) it might not be as fast as I'd hope to finish it.

Huge post is huge, therefore it belongs in spoilers.

Spoiler:

Day 14

So that's how Caroline came to join us. She didn't really change much with our daily routines; after a while, she didn't seem like a follower and actually became a part of the group. It came to be that we weren't complete without the girl with the sparkling green eyes and the ponytail. She kept the two of us on track, and provided that bit of comic relief every now and then. Plus, it was a lot less lonely for Wingman and me. Before, there was no conversation going on while we traveled, but with Caroline here, there was always something being discussed.

Today, the two were having an in depth discussion about berries and whether they should or shouldn't be used in food for humans. I was content to just walk alongside them and enjoy the scenery. We were walking through the forest - Ilex Forest, to be exact - and the shadows kept everything in a sort of eerie darkness. They nearly blotted out the sun, and it was almost as if night had fallen here and here alone. The air was still; not uncomfortably so, but enough to create a stillness that calmed one down, no matter what plagued their thoughts.

"I'm telling you, pop a few good Pecha Berries into the icing of a cake and it's about fifty times better," spoke Caroline.

Wingman's reply was, "I dunno, wouldn't the poison-fighting juices have an adverse effect on the human body?"

The conversation went on like this for a while. It wasn't ever an argument; the atmosphere in the forest prevented that. And to me, it was comforting noise. Knowing that Wingman had someone to converse with let my own mind wander. I started thinking about my old home; I wondered how my brothers and sisters were doing.

The forest started to thin after a while and turned into a lovely shore. The stillness and shade disappeared, but it wasn't all at once; it had a sort of gradual fade to it that seemed natural and untouched. By now, the conversation had shifted to something else entirely; what it was, I couldn't tell you.

Along the way, we ran into a few trainers who were good conversation material for the two humans and good experience for me. As we progressed, the number of trainers began to increase, a sure sign of an approaching city. According to Wingman's map, that city was Goldenrod, the largest hub of commerce in Johto. Caroline was already getting giddy, and I was pumping myself up. Big cities usually equate to a Gym.

We started seeing houses and paved streets before anything else. Slowly, they dissolved into taller and taller buildings until, finally, we had reached the main part of Goldenrod. It was staggering, almost like Saffron and Celadon in Kanto. Skyscrapers towered above us, and people rushed around us. Caroline, caught up in the rush, ran off to find the famed Goldenrod Department Store and left us dazed and confused in a city of strangers.

After asking five different people for directions to the Gym, all of whom had no clue that Goldenrod had a Gym, Wingman and I got reliable directions from a young man with a Growlithe. As we headed that way, he told us to be prepared; Whitney, the Leader, was pretty tough.

The Gym was pretty plain; mainly, it was a room filled with potted plants and flowers decorating the walls and a battle field in the middle of it. Whitney was standing there, playing with a Clefairy. When she noticed us, she greeted us with a smile and a lot of pep. She was about Wingman's age, maybe a year older. Wingman and Whitney chatted a bit, and a battle was eventually declared.

Her first Pokémon was the very Clefairy that she was playing with moments ago. It wasn't very much of a challenge; it wasn't very good at dodging and my horn isn't very good at missing. Whitney started to pout and called me a meanie before sending out her second and final Pokémon, a Miltank. That thing was what one might easily call a tank, and not only because of its name. The thing had a huge amount of stamina; it just wouldn't go down. I had to ram it five or six times before it started to show signs of tiring. Around this time, Caroline had arrived, and she was sitting on the provided bleachers.

Of course, the Miltank didn't just sit there while I attacked it; it did this strange move where it would curl up into a ball and roll right at me like a boulder. I jumped out of the way most of the time, but it was a pro at cornering and smacking into me when I least expected it. Eventually, it stopped, and I would get a hit or two in while it was dizzy from all the rolling around.

After a long battle, the Miltank finally fell and Wingman and I were the victors. Unfortunately, this upset Whitney greatly, and she began to cry and bawl. Wingman and I had no idea what to do, but Caroline sure did. She walked up to Whitney and comforted her like a pro. In no time, Whitney was back to her peppy self and handed Wingman the Plain Badge he deserved.

With nothing else to do in Goldenrod - Caroline didn't buy much, only a few trinkets and some useful travel things for us, such as a tent, which Wingman had forgotten in Kanto. And it was just in time too; the sky was darkening, and a storm seemed inevitable tonight.

The three of us were able to make it back to that weird dancing tree that kept us from going straight to Goldenrod earlier. We showed Caroline this and she laughed. Pulling out her water bottle, she told me to get ready for a battle and dumped some water on the tree.

Suddenly, it sprang to life and attacked. It was a Pokémon; a Sudowoodo to be exact. It sprang at us and I defended. The thing was rock-hard, and my horn had not felt such pain since I faced Brock in Pewter. I defaulted to tackling and ramming until it finally ran off. Right then, the sky began to spit droplets of water down on us. Wingman and Caroline rushed to set up the tent and I did my best to stay out of the way. Halfway through the setup process, it started sprinkling, and Caroline and Wingman picked up the pace. Soon the tent was up and we crowded our stuff in with us as the rain began pouring down.

We spent the night joking around and telling stories over a flashlight fire.

Day 15

The next morning was clean and crisp. The leaves dripped water down to the undergrowth, and the soil hungrily ate it up. Sun streamed through the trees and cast strange patterns of light and shade into the moist ground. Somewhere, a Pidgey twittered cheerily.

Waking up felt clumsy, and the tent made it clumsier. As the three of us stumbled around, the tent shook and sent water droplets everywhere. When, finally, all of us were out, Wingman and Caroline shook out the tent and hung it to dry in the sun. A short hour later, all of us were fully awake and alert, and breakfast was devoured. Soon after, the tent was folded up and we were on our way again.

The air today was hot and humid, the way it always is after a heavy summer storm. It stuck to my skin and to Wingman's and Caroline's clothes. The ground had turned into a sort of muck, and it grabbed at our ankles and tried to pull us under. A patch of dry ground was like stumbling on a fully prepared cake, perfectly decorated and ready to serve. Slowly the trees began to thin again, and such patches of unsaturated dirt became more and more rare. Luckily, it also meant that a town was near, and Wingman's map once again served us well, telling us that it was Ecruteak City. Folklore and legend were its main attractions.

Sure enough, upon reaching the town, we were greeted with authentic Japanese lanterns and Pagoda-styled houses and buildings. No doubt why it was one of Johto's greatest tourist spots. And the biggest attraction seemed to be a dance studio, smack dab in the middle of the city. Wingman and I wanted to skip it and find the Gym, but Caroline wanted to check it out. Somehow, her word turned into law and Wingman was forced to resign his resolve to always go straight to the Gym in any city or town we find.

In the theatre, a woman dressed in a flowing floral robe greeted us and led us to our seats. We had fairly good seats, and I even got one. Talk about Pokémon friendly. The show started after a few minutes of impatient waiting. The lights dimmed and the curtains lifted. Five girls in kimonos, each a different color and each holding a different color fan, started dancing across the stage with such grace and poise that even Wingman started to enjoy the dance. As the dance progressed, five Pokémon - an Espeon, an Umbreon, a Flareon, a Jolteon, and a Vaporeon - joined up with the dancers, pairing by color. They followed each step with similar agility and grace. I couldn't tell whether or not a story was being told, but the dance ended with a great finale that seemed to mimic a battle.

After the performance, there was an announcement that the Kimono Girls were open for questions and battle challenges. Wingman and I suddenly looked at each other and automatically knew what the other was thinking. Caroline must've understood it too, because she told us to go ahead.

Wingman and I raced down to the stage, where the Kimono Girls talked with other audience members. We waited eagerly for our turn to talk to them, and when it came, Wingman did his best to hold a conversation with the five ladies. They were fairly nice, and I took the opportunity to talk to their Pokémon. They were brothers and sisters, and they were all close to each other. They were very proper, and I felt a little out of place talking to them. But Wingman finally popped the question about battle challenges, and the girls accepted. The five Pokémon and I exchanged a few more words, and we took our places on the field. First up was the Espeon, and I was glad she was the first; if not, her Psychic powers would have torn through me with little trouble. With me still at full energy, however, I had no problem taking her down. Umbreon and his trainer followed, and he gave me a little trouble with his nasty habit of vanishing in the shadows. I got the hang of his attack pattern quickly though, and he was out.

The next three were much easier due to my previous experience battling them in Kanto. The Kimono Girls were very impressed with my power and Wingman's skill as a trainer. They told us we could be just the match Morty was looking for. As we walked away, Wingman asked if they knew anyplace we could find a Moon Stone. They told us to check out the Burned Tower, so that was our next destination.

The Burned Tower was not really a tower, but it sure was burned. A nearby sign told us that a bolt of lightening had caught it on fire and that three Pokémon of great power had perished in the fire, and a fourth Pokémon had resurrected them. Caroline was interested in the myth, and Wingman wanted to get in to find a Moon Stone. I felt a bad presence in there, but I went in anyways.

Of course, I was right about the presence. In the tower, Greg was rooting around in the ashes. He noticed us, and Wingman noticed him. I started glaring at him as he approached us. He spat out an explanation for him being here before noticing Wingman's bandages on his neck and shoulder. He called Wingman a wimp for not being able to stand a Gastly's bite. Wingman's left hand clenched tight, his right one still numb and useless, and I started to growl at him. Greg looked down at me and laughed at me. "What a pathetic Pokémon you had to choose. He can't even control himself when he knows someone is better than him."

Wingman snapped and demanded a battle, but Greg just pushed us aside and left. I was boiling over with frustration, and I wanted so badly to bite onto his shoulder and see how he liked it. But I held myself back; nothing good ever came from taking an eye for an eye. Caroline asked us what was up with him, and Wingman explained that Greg had commanded his Gastly to attack him. Caroline was upset that Wingman didn't try to grab him and take him in to the police, but Wingman told her that he wanted to take care of Greg personally.

Returning to our original plan, we started to look for a Moon Stone. Sure enough, I found one. I started feeling that familiar sense of power that came from the stone and followed it back to a pile of rubble. I sorted through it and tossed a few burnt logs out of the way. Then I found it. The shiny black stone glistened in even the dim light here. I called out to Wingman and Caroline, and they rushed over. Wingman assured me that it was, indeed, a Moon Stone. I waited for him to pick it up, but when he didn't, I looked up at him. "What're you waiting for, Titan? Touch it!" he said. I smiled and touched my horn to it. That familiar sensation flowed through me once more and I stood my full size once more.

One HM and one TM later, Wingman, Caroline, and I stood in the Gym, registering to battle Morty. The whole Gym was dark, and only a few candles lit up the field, which was over a seemingly bottomless pit. The field itself was made of glass, or something similar to it, for it was clear, almost to the point where you couldn't tell it was there if not for the outline of the field painted in white on it.

Morty himself was something else; he acted as a spiritual entity of sorts, appearing in a cloud of fog and speaking in a strange way that made him seem ancient. "So, young one, a battle with me is what you seek?" he asked Wingman, who nodded.

"Hmm... I see that you only have one Pokémon with you," he said after studying us over. "What makes you any different from the many trainers I turn away empty handed daily?"

"Well, we beat all five of the Kimono Girls in a row and they told us that we might be the challenge you were looking for."

At that, Morty seemed intrigued. "Did they? Well, they've rarely been wrong. We shall battle, young trainer."

With that, the battle began. Morty used Ghost types; previously, that would've been the worst part of the battle, but after evolving, I was able to learn Thunderpunch, since a Thunderbolt TM was nowhere to be found. With that annoyance no longer a problem, the worst part of the battle was my fear of Wingman being accidentally bitten by one of Morty's Pokémon. Wingman did flinch when the first Pokémon out was Gastly, but after I Thunderpunched it into the floor, he seemed to calm down.

The battle went smoothly otherwise, and was a lot less challenging than I expected. I almost found it boring, but the Ghost Pokémon were fairly worthy opponents due to their ability to disappear and reappear somewhere else. His Haunter had the personality of a prankster, and would often reappear under the glass field, making me accidentally punch the glass and hurt my hand.

After the battle was over and Wingman and I had won, Morty handed us the Fog Badge. "I have to ask you a question, young trainer," Morty announced as we started to leave. We stopped and faced him.

"I noticed that you tensed up when I sent out my Gastly; are you afraid of them?"

Wingman shook his head. "No, I'm just a little shaken from this." He showed Morty his bandages and explained the whole incident.

"I see. I will make sure to keep an eye peeled for such a trainer." He started to walk away, then turned around and added, "By the way, have this." He threw a TM to Wingman, who caught it in his good hand. "I think it will serve you well on your journey." With that, he was gone into the dark fog.

Day 16

Last night we stayed in a little inn near the edge of Ecruteak, and Wingman and Caroline plotted out tomorrow's plan of action. Olivine City was a little farther away, but it was the only way to get to Cianwood City, and both cities had Gyms waiting for us. With that planned out, Wingman looked at the TM Morty had given him; it was TM 30, the TM that would teach Shadow Ball. He and I thought about teaching it to me over Rock Slide, and we decided it would help me more, due to the larger number of Psychic type Pokémon that we were seeing.

The next morning arrived bright and sunny. The dew glistened with many different colors, and the mud and puddles from yesterday had all but vanished. Bug Pokémon flitted here and there, visiting flowers and collecting pollen. It was a perfect day, and we planned to travel all the way to Olivine and catch a ferry to Cianwood. When we left, the sun was only starting its ascent into the sky.

The trail we followed meandered through meadows and fields, passing a pasture occasionally. Miltank and Tauros grazed and mooed to each other, alerting the others of better grass or a threat to the herd. There was no conversation today; all three of us were lost in the scenery.

In time, the sun crept up to the top of the sky, and we had arrived in Olivine. All the sights and smells of a port town greeted us; rocky beaches, the sound of boat motors, houses lined up along the shore, and the crisp, salty scent of the ocean air. Today was a great day to be out on the water, for the wind was low and breezy, but not powerfully so, and there was not a sign of any form of bad weather at all.

This was all soured for us, however, as we passed by the Gym. As we approached it, the doors flew open and Greg stepped out of them in a huff. Inevitably, he spotted us and scoffed. "Figures I'd see you losers here," he spat, and I instantly went on defensive mode. He noticed me and chuckled, "I see your puny Pokémon evolved. It's still pathetic. It can't seem to let go of the fact that I'm better than it."

Him calling me an 'it' nearly lit my fuse. I was just about to explode on him when I saw Wingman shake his head ever so slightly. I knew I had to restrain myself, but around Greg, it was nearly impossible.

"Anyway, I don't have time to deal with you wimps," Greg shrugged. "I was going to battle the Gym Leader, but she's out taking care of some sick Pokémon at the Lighthouse. What a waste. If it's sick, why not just replace it?" He shook his head. "Such heartache has no room in the mind of a Gym Leader." Then he shoved us aside and left Olivine the way we came.

Once Greg was out of earshot, Caroline yelled, "I just hate that guy! Who the hell does he think he is, anyway? How can he call a Pokémon replaceable?"

We all agreed to check on that poor Pokémon ourselves and see what we could do to help it. The Lighthouse wasn't too far out of the way, and if the Leader was up there, we were better off going to her instead of going to the Gym and waiting.

The top of the Lighthouse was a circular room, and the glass was extremely thick. Any light coming in was magnified, and I suspected that it worked the same way as any light going out would. In the center of the room, an Ampharos was lying on the bed, moaning and shivering, obviously sick beyond words. A woman was sitting by the bedside, doing everything she could to help the Pokémon feel better. She noticed our arrival and welcomed us.

"I am Jasmine, Gym Leader of this city. If you are a trainer, I'm sorry, but I'm not open for challenges right now. I must make sure Amphy gets well so she can return to powering the Lighthouse."

Instead of leaving, Wingman offered to help her. She seemed a little surprised, and then told us of a pharmacy in Cianwood that might have a cure. We promised that we'd be back as soon as we could.

We caught the next ferry to Cianwood City and it departed shortly. Soon, we were zipping along towards both a medicine for Amphy and a new badge for Wingman. The ship we were on was small, but not uncomfortable. It traveled very fast, much faster than I could have ever swam. I was mostly just glad that I didn't have to swim.

Cianwood City came faster than I expected. In only an hour or two, the ferry had reached the shore and we were standing on the beach. Caroline and Wingman decided that we'd split up; Caroline was to find the pharmacy and get the medicine, and Wingman and I would take on the Gym.

Since Cianwood was more like a large town, the Gym was relatively easy to find. The building was rather small, only about house size. The battle field wasn't even in the Gym; it was out back of it, and we didn't even have to enter the Gym to get to it. Chuck, the Leader, was training with his Pokémon, so we waited for his workout to finish before we came up to him. He was much older than any of the Gym Leaders in Johto so far, but he was the most toned one. He heartily agreed to our battle request, and we took our sides on the beach field.

This battle was one of the easier ones I took part in. Neither of his Pokémon were overly tough, and there were only two of them. His Primeape was too clumsy for its own good, and it mostly charged around wildly after I got it mad. Once it tired itself out, a Horn Attack put it down. His Poliwrath was a little tougher, but more reserved, so I charged it with a Thunderpunch, and it didn't dodge in time.

Chuck was astounded, and he vowed right there to increase his training ten fold. He handed us the Storm Badge and ran off into the Gym, raving about how his new training schedule will be so much more intense. I almost wrote the guy off as a lunatic.

With the badge in hand, we returned to the Cianwood docks, where Caroline was waiting for us. She had already reserved a spot for us on the next ship out, and the medicine she was looking for was in her bag.

As we waited for the ferry to arrive, Wingman told Caroline of the battle we had and Caroline described the pharmacy. She said that the man there was a little loopy, but a genius at mixing chemicals into potions. He had cured a Mantine who had been attacked by three Tentacruel and poisoned nearly to the point of death with only one potion, she told us.

When the ferry finally arrived, the sun was starting to sink below the horizon. We had to convince the captain of the ferry to do one last run to Olivine. He argued that with the Lighthouse Pokémon sick, he wouldn't be able to see the rocks around the port, but our rebuttal was that if he didn't get us back to Olivine, that Lighthouse Pokémon might not make it through to get better. He changed his mind after hearing that.

He gunned that ferry as fast as it would go, reaching Olivine right as the sun started to sink. We hurried off the boat and over to the Lighthouse, where Jasmine and Amphy were waiting. We handed the special medicine to her, and she thanked us immensely. Upon administering it to Amphy, I noticed a sudden change in her. The Ampharos started looking a little less pale almost instantly. Jasmine thanked us again, and told us that she'd stay here with Amphy until tomorrow, to make sure that she was better. We understood and left to find a hotel to stay in for the night. As we left, I swear I heard Amphy mutter, "Thank you, strangers."

Day 17

The next morning, I was the first to wake up. Odd, but something about today felt different. The weather outside was perfect, just like yesterday, and everything was in its place, but there was something odd. I couldn't place it, so I woke up Caroline and Wingman.

Our first order of business was to check the Lighthouse and see how Amphy was doing. When the three of us arrived, Amphy greeted us by tackling me. Of all of us, I don't know why she tackled me when it was Caroline who had the potion, but I didn't really question it. She was blabbering about how much she owed me and how I saved her life. I started getting a little embarrassed, and Wingman and Caroline both laughed at us.

Amphy then showed us the note that was sitting on the table. It was addressed to "Helpful Trainers" and was signed by Jasmine. It said that she was very grateful for our help and that it was because of us that Amphy is cured. The letter stated that when we were ready, she was back in her Gym taking challenges once again.

Wingman was excited, and I started getting myself in the zone. As we started leaving, Amphy ran up and hugged me, thanking me again. I blushed at the embrace, and Wingman snickered. "Looks like someone has a little crush on you, Titan!" I blushed even harder at this, and Amphy giggled and let me go. I pretended that it was awkward then, but now I think I kind of liked it.

At the Gym, Jasmine greeted us and thanked us in person for our generous help. She agreed to a battle and we took our spots on the field. It looked almost exactly like Brock's field, and that worried me. I did not want to face any more Rock types without the help of Earthquake. Fortunately, she sent out a Magnemite, and I was sort of relieved. Shadow Ball helped out tremendously here. The second Magnemite was almost a mirror image of the first, and it fell the exact same way. Then came her Steelix, who was a monster. The steel snake roared at me, and I was actually a little scared. But I forced myself to stand and summoned a giant wave of water from thin air and Surfed right over it.

With that out of the way, Jasmine handed Wingman the Mineral Badge, and we were headed back to Ecruteak and towards Mahogany Town. Luckily for us, Caroline mentioned that she could make the trip easier with the Pidgeot that she kept in storage. It meant that I'd have to go into my PokéBall, but it also meant we could reach Mahogany Town before noon. Wingman agreed, and Caroline withdrew her Pidgeot. I was sucked into my PokéBall, and the next thing I knew, I was in Mahogany Town.

The Gym was closed for the time being, so Wingman, Caroline, and I decided to check out the Lake of Rage, a nearby attraction. It was supposedly a beautiful and peaceful lake, great for fishing and swimming. The path up there was short, and a toll house along the way cut into our funds. But we figured it'd be worth it to see the lake.

However, when we got there, it was all but peaceful. A red Gyarados was rampaging around the lake, knocking down trees and destroying everything in its path. Wingman wanted to do something to stop it, so we all lured it over to us, where I took it on. It may have been angry, but a Thunderpunch to the face put it in its place.

After it left, we surveyed the area. It was a wreck; trees were strewn about like a set of Lincoln Logs, patches of grass were thrown about and holes were left in their place, and some nearby lake houses were damaged greatly. It was a horrible thing to see, and it really ruined the whole visit.

Then, out of nowhere, Lance appeared and addressed the scene. He came up to Wingman and me and said it was no surprise to see us here. He asked about Caroline, and Wingman explained that she was traveling with us because of his injury, which was still healing, but getting closer to being fully healed. Gastly bites are notorious for taking days to fully close.

Lance told us that he had gotten a lead about Team Rocket experimenting with radio waves nearby, trying to force evolution upon Magikarps. The Gyarados we had just stopped was the most recent experiment. He told us to tune in our radio to the wavelength 86.7, and a strange sound started playing. Lance told us that this was the radio wave that they were experimenting on, and he asked for Wingman's help to stop them. He agreed, and we returned to Mahogany.

Lance led us to the supposed entrance to the Team Rocket hideout, and he blasted past the guard there. We easily found the secret switch and revealed a staircase. Team Rocket sure loves their secret staircases. We headed into the thick of it, and went straight to the room where the generator that powered the transmitter sat. We were stopped, however, by a couple of Team Rocket grunts and an Executive. They forced us into a battle, but they were no match for Lance's Dragonite and me.

They abandoned the base, saying that this was only a mere side plot to their real plan. That made me worry, but I had more important matters first. We had to shut of the generator, and when Lance couldn't find a switch, I pushed everyone back and shot a Shadow Ball at it, breaking the huge belt and blowing off a few gears. The motor of the machine kept spinning, but the actual part that needed the motor stopped working. Caroline turned on her radio once again, and the strange noises had stopped.

With the machine out of commission, Lance thanked us for our help. He was impressed with our progress so far, and complimented my strength. He said he'd never seen any Nidoking use a Shadow Ball that powerful. I beamed ear to ear, and Lance turned to Wingman. He handed him an HM and told us it might come in handy.

Wingman and Lance exchanged farewells, and Lance wished us good luck on the rest of our journey, and he was off. We left the secret base as well, but not after I wrecked the motor as well.

Back outside, we returned to the Gym and found it re-opened. Which was lucky for us; neither of us wanted to wait until tomorrow. As we opened the doors, a gust of frigid air rushed out to greet us. Tentatively, we all stepped in and shut the doors behind us. All at once, we started to shiver; it was at least twenty degrees colder in here. The Gym Leader, Pryce, came up to us and greeted us harshly. "You must be here to challenge me," he said. "The challenger platform is over there. Let's get this over with."

Pryce was an older man, in his sixties, presumably, and he had the crotchety old man act down perfectly. Somehow, he wasn't shivering at all in the cold room, even though I could see my own breath. The field was covered in ice, and it almost looked like it really was just solid ice. Icicles hung from the ceiling, and snow drifts were placed here and there. The battle began, and he sent out a few Ice-Water types, a Seel and Dewgong to be exact, and Thunderpunch took care of both of them easily. His third Pokémon wasn't as simple. It was a Piloswine, and it was part Ground type. I figured out that it was indeed weak to Water type moves, and a wave of water knocked it out cold. Get it? It's an Ice type and it got knocked out cold! Pretty punny, right? Hehe... I've got to stop trying to be funny.

After the battle, Pryce seemed to get a little less grumpy, but he didn't open up much. He gave Wingman the Glacier Badge, congratulated us, and told us to leave. He said he was missing his show, and then he left.

"What an odd old man he was," Caroline observed.

We left town to the east as the sun started setting. When there was only a little light left, we set up camp. We didn't even bother with setting up the tent; the sky was clearer than a sheet of new glass. We laid ourselves out under the stars and gazed upwards, Wingman discussing what could be out in space with Caroline as I slowly dozed off.

IMPORTANT: I am going to be doing this in an odd fashion. Since I have gotten behind in my actual logs, for I have currently beaten Gold all the way through the battle with Red, I will be continuing on into Ruby. HOWEVER, each post from now on will be composed of my current status in whichever game I'm on, followed by one or two log entries. This means that THE LOGS IN EACH POST WILL NOT CORRESPOND TO MY CURRENT POSITION IN THE CHALLENGE. If you wish to know my current position, it will be in the space before the logs. Thank you, and have a nice day.

CURRENT POSITION: Beaten Red in Gold Version, will be starting Ruby soon.

Day 18

The day started out normally, with the sun rising and us cursing at it. We rolled up the sleeping mats and stuffed away the pillows into bags overflowing from being packed and unpacked and repacked multiple times. Today, everything felt a little dreamy. I was sort of floating in a haze for most of the morning, my mind not fully awake. Even when Caroline flipped on the radio and we all heard the broadcast of Team Rocket searching for Giovanni, I still stumbled around. Then there was a flash of red light and I was in my PokéBall.

I re-entered the world in Goldenrod, where I saw Team Rocket members blocking off everything: shops, houses, even the Gym. They had overrun the city and the main headquarters was at the Radio Tower. I snapped out of my haze gradually, but when I did, you can bet that I was concerned about Team Rocket's goal; bringing back Giovanni meant that I'd have to face him again, and that meant Doku... I didn't want a repeat of the Viridian City Gym.

But if we stopped Team Rocket before then, we could avoid the whole confrontation entirely. So that was our whole goal. We were supposed to infiltrate the tower and find the head Rocket in Giovanni's absence. Our plan was to sneak in the back where the number of guards was much lower and sneak our way up the service stairs. If needed, we'd battle the grunt here and there to keep them quiet, but we truthfully wanted to be as unnoticeable as possible.

That lasted for about five minutes. We were starting up towards the second floor when a grunt noticed us and sounded the alarm. A wave of grunts chased after us, and I was forced to knock aside the occasional Zubat or Golbat they'd send at us. We kept racing up the stairs until I finally got tired of it and blasted a hole in them with a Shadow Ball. That stopped the grunts short, and we continued up. News would eventually reach the temporary boss, and then we'd be in trouble.

At the top floor of the tower, a man was broadcasting something about supporting Team Rocket's cause. He called himself the director, but I knew something was up with him. I walked up to him and swiftly tore off his overcoat, revealing a Team Rocket uniform. He cursed at us for seeing through him and sent out his Pokémon. They were easy to beat aside; five Koffings and a Weezing a good team does not create.

The man had an iron resolution to stay silent. Then I picked him up and pressed him against the wall. He blabbed that the real director was being held in an underground warehouse (Team Rocket really has an affinity for things underground) and that he had the key to access the room where the boss was. Wingman thanked him and I dropped him, where he crumpled to the floor, scared out of his wits. "I think we might have scarred him for life," Caroline stated, and Wingman and I just shrugged and raced back down the stairs.

We had to divert to the main stairs at the point where I blew the service stairs up, but it wasn't too far from the ground floor. Once back outside, we headed to the underground warehouse, which wasn't too hard to find. A key was needed, and seeing as we didn't have one, I decided that my foot would make a good lock pick. It didn't open the lock, but there wasn't really a need to after I was done with that door.

We charged into the warehouse and found a maze of switches and shutters. Before we could enter the maze, however, someone called out at us. Upon turning around, we saw Greg, standing by the stairs. "Figures I'd find you weaklings here." He walked over to us and acted tough. "Weak people often are drawn to other weak people. And seeing you around Team Rocket confirms that."

He grinned smugly at us, and then continued, "I think I'll let you handle this one; I don't get my hands dirty battling weaklings." Then he strode off, climbing up the stairs and out of sight. He just grinds my gears, any time I see him. The way he talks and regards others just makes me want to shove his fat red head off of a cliff. If there had been a cliff handy, I just might have done it.

After Greg was out of the room, Wingman and I brushed his words out of our minds and continued onward. We explored through the maze of tunnels and hallways, eventually stumbling upon a large room lined wall to wall with labeled boxes. Each label was different; some said 'Stat Boosters', others said 'Potions', and still more said 'TMs'. "It's like a department store storage house," Wingman observed, looking around.

Suddenly, a muffled sound, like screaming, was audible through the whole area. A box, unlabeled and carelessly stacked in the corner, started shaking violently. We ran over to investigate it, finding a middle-aged man tied up and gagged. Wingman removed the gag, and the man breathed a deep sigh of relief. "Thank you so much! I'm the real Director of the Radio Tower, but Team Rocket tied me up and threw me down here this morning. If you would please..."

He motioned to his bindings, and Caroline and Wingman undid them while I supported the Director. "Thank you. Now, Team Rocket has most likely holed themselves up in the east side of the tower, behind the locked door. This key should allow you to enter." The Director handed Wingman a card key, and Wingman slid it in his pocket for safe keeping. "Now please," the Director said, "save the Radio Tower! Who knows what Team Rocket could do with it..."

I suddenly remembered what they were doing to the Magikarp in the Lake of Rage; if they broadcasted that signal over the vast distance the Radio Tower could reach, they could possibly force evolution on all Pokémon in Johto. The chaos emerging from such an event would be devastating.

The three of us rushed back to the Radio Tower and were met with the pumped up security at both entrances. We decided that the back exit would be best for now, so we snuck up to the guards as quietly as possible and I knocked their heads together; not hard enough to kill, but just enough to knock them out. Swiftly, we ascended the steps up to the large gap I had created earlier. I was able to rip off a chunk of the drywall nearby and use it as a bridge across the gap. It supported Caroline and Wingman, but only barely. I heard it creaking dangerously as they crossed, so I knew it couldn't hold me.

Launching myself into the air, I was able to make it most of the way across; however, I still landed on the drywall and it splintered beneath my weight. I started to fall, my feet not quite on the steps yet. Right then, Wingman threw out his right arm - his injured one - and caught me. His face instantly twisted into a grotesque mask of intense pain.

I gripped him tightly; while a one story fall wouldn't kill me, it would seriously damage me. Caroline helped out, but Wingman's arm had already sustained even greater damage from receiving all of my weight. After I was back on solid footing, Wingman held his shoulder in pain; his face was twisted into a dreadful expression of agony. I could tell it kept all of his restraint to keep from shouting out.

Caroline and I helped him to his feet after a while, and we supported him the rest of the way up the stairs. At the top floor, Wingman was able to pull out the card key and hand it to Caroline. She slid it into the slot and the door clicked open. Wingman pushed us back and stood on his own, though he was a bit shaky; the pain had caused his legs to weaken as his mind was overridden with pain signals from his shoulder.

With his good arm, he both supported himself on the door and slammed it open. A man in a special Team Rocket uniform was relaxing in a desk in the room, which was more of an office. He sat up as the door opened, but upon seeing us, he visibly relaxed. "Ah, it would seem that a few kids have broken into my office. I must remind myself to severely scold the guards," he said to himself.

"We may be kids, but there's more to us than meets the eye," Wingman calmly responded.

"Is that so?" questioned the Rocket man, who was clearly the head honcho while Giovanni was absent. Standing up, he continued. "I notice that you've been using that door for support the whole time you've been here. It would seem that you are either injured in your legs or pain elsewhere in your body has rendered them weak. How far off am I?"

"Actually, you're spot on," Wingman replied. "I couldn't stand on my own if I wanted to right now; Gastly bites take a while to heal over, and exerting the affected area can cause overpowering discomfort." He let go of the door and slumped against the frame. Caroline and I rushed to support him again, but he waved us away. "This doesn't mean that you should just disregard me, however. I may be in pain, but my little friend here is not."

I took this a cue to step forward. The Rocket Head smirked at this. "If that's the case, let's see how strong your friend is. In fact, I'll cut you a deal. If you win, Team Rocket will disband for good; but if I win, you have to leave here and never meddle in the affairs of Team Rocket from then on."

"Deal." And the battle began.

It was much simpler than I expected; he had two Fire types and a Golbat, each of which didn't stand a chance against Surf and Thunderpunch respectively. The battle was over shortly, and the Team Rocket Head was in shock. But he held up his end of the deal; he recognized when he was beat and had the honor to be civilized. "A deal is a deal. You won, so from this day forward, Team Rocket will be no more. Now I bid you farewell." He backed up to the window, threw it open, and stepped out onto the ledge. Upon whistling, a Fearow appeared out of nowhere and took him away, out of sight.

After he had left, we returned to the ground floor, where the Director met us and thanked us for saving the tower. We didn't stay for long, however, for Wingman needed medical attention for his arm. At the hospital, they took a quick x-ray of his shoulder and discovered that catching me had not only hindered the healing process of his previous wound, but also displaced his shoulder joint and fractured his arm. He would have to wear a sling to keep his arm in the proper position for healing.

The hospital nurses fit him with a sling and a brace to keep it in the correct place in relation to his body. After it was all fitted on, Wingman's arm stuck out a good six inches from his body. They gave Caroline specific instructions on how to help him get used to the sling and handed her a prescription for pain killers that would help Wingman deal with the pain.

It was recommended that we stay at the hospital for the night, but we looked at the charges that would come with that and decided to find a hotel somewhere. We ended up sleeping just outside the city under the stars. Wingman was having some issues adjusting to his sling, but he started to get used to it. Hopefully it would heal in four days. Until then, he was supposed to wear the sling and avoid physical exertion.

I spent half of that night awake, staring at the sky. I was thinking, so many strange things have happened to me ever since Wingman found me that one day. Evolution, Gym battles, dealing with past memories being skewed horribly, becoming the Champion of Kanto, de-evolving and re-evolving, Greg and his Gastly, the Ampharos with a crush on me, and most recently, the Radio Tower incident. Three weeks ago I would have never dreamed of any of those things happening. And now they lined up in front of me like a parade of demented thoughts and odd moments.

Truthfully, I wouldn't have it any other way.
