Ok, I decided to do something original, so when I was searching gamefaqs, I all of a sudden decided to look at a walkthru. Then it clicked! The walkthroughs could make fabulous stories!

Note that I messed up element of the plot for some reason. I was trying to continue the color code thingy.
Pokémon Red Version- The Novel
By Torchic/Omega-Brendan

A/N: This is classic game came to life, I would like to thank all the walkthrough writers out there because I used nearly all the ones I could find for reference.

Chapter One- Leaving Home

My name is Red, pretty boring eh? Even I have to agree with that, anyway, I am your ordinary 10-year-old boy with a dream, but this isn’t a boring dream like those you find in boring storybooks, it’s a dream that deals with reality. What is it? To be a Pokémon Master.

What is Pokémon you ask? Pokémon is a race of monsters, each one is different, and in other words, they are like us humans. Most Pokémon have an owner, which are humans, they are used for battling, as pets, and even just for collecting.

How many Pokémon are there? Well, there are over 151 species of Pokémon, but I only know 5 of the millions of them. They are Charmander, Bulbasaur, Squirtle, Pidgey, and Rattata. Pidgey and Rattata are the most common of the Pokémon found throughout our country, and Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle are going to be Pokémon that I will be getting once I start my journey.

Journey? Yes, a journey to master all 151 species of Pokémon that we know of, isn’t that amazing?

Well Good Night then… Bye!

Next Morning…

I woke up, this is it, I’m going to leave home, a possible 1-year journey away from home. I’m going to be a Pokémon Trainer.

I looked at the digital clock next to me; it read 6:30 AM in a ‘Computerish’ way.
This is my last chance to look at my home I’ve lived in for 10-years. I looked into the mirror, and looked at my Super Nintendo. I inserted a cartridge into it and I was playing everyone’s favorite, Super Mario World. The feather dropped down from the reserve box at the top, as Mario grew taller and a cape extended from his back. I pressed the Back button and I appeared in the stage called Front Door, I beat this and I beat Bowser.

I went into it, taking path number 4 as I did a couple of spin jumps, soon I was next to a big red door, I hit the green switch as a feather began to float down gently, I leapt up to it, now with the strongest power-up in the game in reserve and with me right now, Bowser is going to lose.

Then the TV screen stopped, then it was blank.

“No time to play now!” My mum said as she walked up a set of stairs. It was obvious that she used the remote and turned the TV screen off.

“Mum!” I complained.

“It’s 7 o’ clock already! Mr. Red!” she yelled.

“Ok…” I looked into the mirror. It was me, 5-feet tall boy, messy black hair, wearing my favorite blue jeans with a belt used for holding Pokéballs.

“Look what I bought for you!” My mum said.

I looked over my bowl of cereal and saw a present wrapped up with a Pokéball print.

I began to tear through the layers of wrapping paper.

Then I felt what was inside, It was a huge rucksack with the length of my spine!

“Thanks Mum!” I said.

“That’s not all…” My mum gathered a pile of presents and stacked them one by one.

“Whoa!” I quickly looked through all the presents; the twins who were always doing strange things each gave me a present. One gave me a glove and the other one gave me the other glove.
I laughed. I looked through other presents, it was from Uncle Lance. He gave me an official Pokémon League cap that he bought in the souvenir shop.

But there was one present that caught my eyes; it was from Brock, Pewter City Gym Leader, who Uncle Lance knew very well.

Brock gave me a red shirt with two pockets on either side. I put it on. It had white sleeves that were just a bit bigger than my black t-shirt.

“I’m ready to go now!” I announced.

“Good bye sweetie!” Mum shouted. “Remember to write letters to me!”

“I will!” I waved at my mum. As I headed north.

“Hey Red!” a voice called

“Huh?” I said as I began to swirl around.

“You forgot to get your Pokémon!” the voice said

“Professor Oak!” I exclaimed. I ran to hug him. To me, he is my grandpa even though his real grandson, Green called him ‘Gramps’.

“Well this is what Green ordered me to do, so I guess I don’t really have a choice…” Professor Oak said, handing a Pokéball over to Red.

“I’ll take it anyway. Thanks a lot!”

“Wait! I ordered some stuff from the Pokémart, can you pick it up for me?” He asked kindly.

“Sure!” I accepted. I began to head north, with a Pokéball attached to my belt.

“Wait again!” Professor Oak yelled. “Have a battle with my grandson!”

“Sure!” I ran to Oak’s Lab, where Green was waiting.”

“Ready to take it on?” I asked.

“Ready!” Green roared.

“Go Pokéball!” we both yelled.

2 similar objects bounced on the floor, as 2 Pokémon were released, one was called Charmander, and the other one was called Bulbasaur.

Surprisingly, I was winning the battle I had a type advantage. I was using Charmander, and Green is using Bulbasaur.

I was confused. But I have no choice but to continue the battle.

“Scratch!” I ordered.

Charmander ran towards its opponent and used its claws to scratch its opponent.

“Tackle!” Green commanded.

Bulbasaur tried to break free of Charmander’s fury as it rolled out just barely and charged at Charmander at full force.

Both Pokémon fell back, and were ready to go for another round, but they were both too exhausted.

“You can do it Charmander!” I cheered.

With the confidence, Charmander awoke from its rest and leaped forward to attack its enemy, this time knocking it out completely.

“YAY!!!!” I roared. The whole town heard me shouting.

I bent down to hug Charmander.

Now I had about 3200 dollars in my wallet.

“I win!” I looked at Green he started to cry.

“You okay?” I bent down, trying to comfort him.

“It’s ok, just leave me alone!” he yelled.

“No choice now I guess…” I walked away, leaving Green alone.
