As mentioned in the preview thread, this series is basically my retelling of the Hoenn region saga, only from the POV of a different set of characters. Throughout, I'll be referencing several events from the original anime, as well as a few events from the video games that never actually appeared in the anime for unknown reasons. And since this is meant to be a more traditional anime than "Pokémon: Intensity", which was more like a prime-time series, each season contains a full 52 episodes. Enjoy...

“New Kid on Debunk”
Episode 1-01
Original Airdate: September 16, 2006

While out riding his bike along the cliffs of Littleroot Town, soon-to-be trainer Brendan Birch is shocked and amazed to see what he swears is the legendary Pokémon Latias. Before he can get a better look at the creature, it soars off into the sky above Littleroot Harbor. Excited over having seen such a rare Pokémon, Brendan suddenly remembers what he set out to do that day - pay his father a visit at the Littleroot Research Lab in order to receive his starting Pokémon. He is especially enthralled over the prospect of telling his father, the renowned Pokémon researcher Professor Birch, of how he was in the presence of Latias. To Brendan’s dismay, Professor Birch is not at his laboratory - his assistant Joshua informs Brendan that the professor had to leave on an emergency mission and had to take the three starting Pokémon with him. Birch does not answer his cell phone when Brendan tries to contact him, so Brendan has no choice but to wait for his father to come back. He laments to Joshua that this is a common occurrence in his life - often, the professor becomes so wrapped up in his work that he overlooks his son completely. Joshua tries to divert Brendan’s mind from such thoughts, but Brendan is tired of hearing excuses and decides to set out and look for his father himself. In the woods surrounding Littleroot Town, Brendan encounters all kinds of wild Pokémon, but he is undaunted by them, determined to find where his father has gone. Ultimately, he encounters a sickly and shuddering Pikachu that viciously attacks him for coming near. Though Brendan is not seriously injured, the confused and weakened Pikachu runs away. Moments later, Professor Birch arrives in the clearing and asks Brendan which way the Pikachu went. No sooner does Brendan show him than Birch takes off again, leaving his son behind without any inquiry as to his injuries. Brendan’s animosity towards his father’s mixed priorities continues to swell, and he decides that if Birch cannot pay any attention to him, he might as well return the favor. Brendan grabs his bike and sets off towards the Littleroot Harbor, intending to catch the next ferry to the Kanto region so he can register at Professor Oak’s lab instead. However, as he is in line to purchase a ticket for the ferry, he finds something in his backpack - a PokéFlute that his father gave him for his birthday several years ago, with an inscription on it reminding him of how much his father cares about him. Realizing that he’s been too hasty, Brendan returns to his father’s lab to obtain his starting Pokémon. Birch is overjoyed to see his son, and upon hearing Brendan’s story, he apologizes for being so focused on his work. Brendan then selects his starting Pokémon - with Torchic already having been claimed by another trainer, Brendan chooses Mudkip. On his way out the door, Brendan tells his father of the legendary Pokémon he saw in the sky earlier that day. Though Birch is somewhat skeptical, he reminds Brendan that the best way to find it again is to search far and wide across the Hoenn region. With his new Pokémon and a renewed sense of motivation, Brendan sets off for the first destination of his Pokémon journey.

“Any Team Will Do”
Episode 1-02
Original Airdate: September 23, 2006

On the way to Oldale Town, Brendan encounters a self-proclaimed “Cool Trainer” named Emily who demands a battle. The challenge is accepted, and Brendan pits his Mudkip against Emily’s Poochyena. Though Emily proves to be a formidable adversary, Brendan ultimately emerges victorious. Emily is disgusted with Brendan’s strength as a beginning trainer, then realizes that she has no Potions with which to heal her Poochyena. Amicable as always, Brendan offers to escort Emily to the Oldale Pokémon Center, and despite her seething grudge against Brendan for defeating her, Emily reluctantly agrees. Along the way, Brendan tries to get to know Emily better, but Emily remains distant and bitter. Upon arriving at the Pokémon Center that evening, Brendan and Emily notice that the lights are all out, and the local Nurse Joy is nowhere to be found. Exploring the darkened building for assistance, Brendan and Emily encounter a group of Team Magma agents. Field Commander Tabitha tells the two young trainers not to meddle in affairs that don’t concern them, but Brendan demands to know what the Magma agents are up to. Unshaken, the Magma agents send forth their Pokémon for battle. Emily steps forth to handle the conflict, but her Poochyena is still too tired to fight. It’s therefore up to Brendan to command his Mudkip in the fight against Team Magma, but the enemy Mightyena, Golbat, and Camerupt are far too strong. Just when it looks as if Brendan is about to lose, several other trainers approach from behind - members of Team Aqua, headed by Tactical Commander Shelly. Shelly’s Crawdaunt and Walrein make short work of defeating Team Magma, who are thus forced to retreat. Brendan and Emily are apprehensive, but to their surprise, Shelly offers the two trainers a pair of Super Potions to heal their Pokémon with. She admits that she is impressed with how Brendan commands his Mudkip, and requests his help in Team Aqua’s efforts to put an end to Team Magma’s bidding. Taken in by Shelly’s friendly demeanor, Brendan and Emily agree to assist the Aqua agents. Shelly leads the trainers and her minions to the ruins outside Oldale Town, where Team Magma is hard at work trying to uncover the secrets of the inner tomb and its seemingly impenetrable entrance. Shelly demands that Tabitha and his cronies leave immediately, but Tabitha refuses, leading to another battle. Brendan and Emily are prepared, and Emily sends forth her newly-healed Poochyena, but one swipe from Tabitha’s Mightyena sends it smashing into a nearby wall. Horrified, Emily grabs her Pokémon and retreats, with Brendan close behind her. Emily angrily states that she hates for people to see her lose, and she didn’t want Tabitha to gain the upper hand. Brendan tries to reassure Emily that losing is nothing to be ashamed of, but he overhears Shelly taunting Tabitha in the other room of the ruins. Upon overhearing that Team Aqua’s primary plan is to overrun the world with water, Brendan realizes that both teams are just as evil as the other, and he and Emily turn against their comrades instantly. Emily’s Poochyena and Brendan’s Mudkip use their minuscule size and ample speed to confuse Tabitha and Shelly’s Pokémon, and when Tabitha’s Camerupt attempts an Eruption attack, the flaming rocks that spew forth from the Pokémon’s back hit the roof of the ruins and cause a cave-in that knocks out Team Aqua’s Pokémon. Defeated, Team Aqua retreats, but before Brendan and Emily can turn their attention to Team Magma, the agents disappear into another area of the ruins without a trace. Brendan assures Emily that he is confident that they will cross paths with the two teams again someday, and upon returning to the now-operational Pokémon Center to heal their Pokémon, Brendan and Emily set off again, willing to be travel partners.

“Boughs of Wally”
Episode 1-03
Original Airdate: September 30, 2006

On the way to Petalburg City, Brendan and Emily take note of how many wild Pokémon are all over Route 102, and both trainers make an attempt to expand their teams. Unfortunately, the Pokémon have a tendency to flee before either Brendan or Emily can capture them. Unable to capture the likes of Zigzagoon, Lotad, and Wurmple, the two trainers soon run out of Poké Balls and must stop by the Petalburg City Poké Mart in order to restock. While in town, they do some exploring and eventually locate the gym. Though it is closed to trainers who have less than four badges, they take note of a young boy staring in the window, looking longingly inside. When Brendan and Emily introduce themselves, the boy shyly avoids their gaze and looks at the ground. Moments later, the boy’s father approaches and reveals the boy’s name to be Wally. Wally is reprimanded by his father for leaving the house without permission, but Wally quietly apologizes, saying that he just wanted to see a real Pokémon battle. Wally’s father invites Brendan and Emily back to the house, claiming that Wally could benefit from some human companionship. However, at Wally’s house, Wally just sits up in his room while Brendan and Emily chat with Wally’s parents. They explain that Wally is a very shy and unconfident boy who wants nothing more than to be a Pokémon trainer, but he’s too unsure of himself to actually go out and take the initiative. Eager to help, Brendan agrees to show Wally the ropes of Pokémon training. He, Emily, and Wally all head out to Route 102 to search for wild Pokémon. Brendan loans Wally his Mudkip in order to battle wild Pokémon, but Wally is too diffident to properly command the Pokémon in battle. After several failed attempts at capturing Pokémon, a distraught Wally wants to give up, but Brendan does his best to encourage him to keep trying. Shortly after, Brendan and Emily are approached by a familiar face - Sean, one of the Team Aqua agents that they tangled with earlier. Sean is still upset over his team’s loss at Brendan and Emily’s hands, and he aims to steal Brendan’s Mudkip as revenge. However, Mudkip is still in Wally’s possession, and Wally is terrified of the vicious Aqua agent. Brendan and Emily, however, encourage him to stand his ground, and Wally manages to muster up the courage to fight Sean himself. Under Wally’s command, Brendan’s Mudkip manages to thoroughly defeat Sean’s Nincada, and Sean is forced to retreat. Wally is astounded that he was able to fend off a real live trainer, and with his confidence renewed, he resumes his search for Pokémon. He finally corners a wild Ralts, weakens it in battle, and swiftly captures it. Upon returning home, Wally shows off his newly caught Pokémon to his extremely proud parents. Seeing what a good job Brendan and Emily have done in educating Wally, they suggest that they be his mentors on his Pokémon journey. The two trainers willingly accept, and an eager Wally packs his things and joins up with Brendan and Emily as they set off for their next destination.

“The Young Man and the Seedot”
Episode 1-04
Original Airdate: October 7, 2006

While traveling through Petalburg Woods, Brendan activates his PokéNav in order to better find his way through the thick foliage. Unfortunately, a wild Taillow soars out of a nearby tree and startles Wally, who bumps into Brendan and causes him to drop his PokéNav, breaking it on a nearby rock. Without any method of fixing the device, Brendan, Emily, and Wally are forced to navigate through the woods on their own. Naturally, the three trainers end up lost and ultimately separated from each other. Trying to relocate his friends, Brendan attempts to keep a lookout from atop a tree, but all he manages to do is disturb a group of Seedot. Brendan assures the Seedot that he means them no harm, and sends out his Mudkip to negotiate with them, but the Acorn Pokémon won’t hear it and subsequently attack Mudkip unannounced. Angry, Brendan vows revenge against the Seedot. Meanwhile, Emily and Poochyena search for the others while simultaneously looking for new Pokémon. Emily has always wanted a Dustox, and Petalburg Woods is crawling with Beautifly’s basic form, Wurmple. Upon locating one, Emily engages it in battle, but the plucky Wurmple manages to tie up Poochyena with a String Shot attack, then makes a hasty getaway. Undaunted, Emily gives chase. Elsewhere in the woods, Wally is lonely and afraid without his friends, but he remembers that he has Ralts for companionship. With his Pokémon by his side, Wally feels more at ease, and he eventually comes across another human. The man, clad in a suit and tie, informs Wally that he works at the Devon Corporation in Rustboro City and is out looking for Pokémon of his own. Upon hearing Wally’s predicament, he agrees to help the young trainer reunite with his travel buddies. Brendan, in the meantime, is still locked in competition with the colony of Seedot, who begin attacking in larger numbers. It looks as if Mudkip cannot handle all the attacking Seedot - until it unleashes its Bide attack, subduing the Pokémon easily. As the Seedot run away, one straggler remains behind, and Brendan prepares to attack it again until he sees how small and pathetic it is away from its cohorts. Brendan apologizes to the Seedot for attacking it so mercilessly, and the grateful Pokémon happily forgives the trainer. Meanwhile, Emily’s search for a Wurmple leads her directly into the path of Wally and the Devon employee, who take her along to look for Brendan. Shortly after, the three of them are approached by a female Team Magma agent named Courtney, who has her eye on a Devon package that the employee is carrying. Confident since his last victory, Wally steps in and commands Ralts to take on Courtney’s Vulpix, but the Magma agent begins to gain the upper hand. Just then, Brendan steps out of the bushes, with the grateful Seedot still following him around. Upon seeing his friends in danger, Brendan sends Mudkip forth to do battle, but Courtney’s Vulpix is very well trained and can withstand Mudkip’s Water attacks. It looks grim until Seedot leaps into the fray, unleashing a Nature Power attack that turns into a paralyzing Stun Spore. With Vulpix incapacitated, Courtney makes a run for it. The Devon employee thanks the three trainers for protecting him and agrees to show them the way through the woods to Rustboro City. Before they leave, Brendan congratulates Seedot on its impressive battle skills and accepts it onto his team as one of his own Pokémon.

“Zero Flower”
Episode 1-05
Original Airdate: October 14, 2006

As the gang heads towards Rustboro City, Emily is distracted by the aroma of flowers in the air. The scent is emanating from the Pretty Petal Flower Shop, and Emily persuades Brendan and Wally to follow her inside. Within the shop, Emily is introduced to the proprietor, a perky woman named Rita and her two sisters, Nicole and Natalie. Emily is disillusioned by Rita’s endless cheerfulness, and Nicole and Natalie pull Emily aside and explain their situation to her. Recently, the store’s business has been plummeting, and the sisters will most likely have to close up soon. In order to distract herself from the grim truth, Natalie has been forcibly ignoring the problem and acting as if nothing was wrong. Emily realizes that something has to be done if Natalie is to recognize the issue at hand and do something to turn it around. Meanwhile, Brendan and Wally grow tired of hearing Natalie ramble on about flowers, and they step outside to escape. While perusing the shop’s selection of rare plants, Brendan encounters a young boy who willingly gives him a Technical Machine. Upon explaining to Wally that Technical Machines are special devices that can teach Pokémon certain moves, Brendan discovers that his is TM09, Bullet Seed. The only Pokémon owned by either trainer that can learn the attack is Brendan’s Seedot, so he decides to put it to good use. Affixing the TM to Seedot’s head, Brendan activates the machine and beams the attack directly into Seedot’s memory bank. Inside the shop, Emily strikes up a casual conversation with Natalie, eventually turning it to the store’s financial situation. But still, Natalie acts as though nothing were amiss. Nicole and Rita deduce that if their big sister isn’t going to do anything, it must be up to them to increase the store’s business, and Emily volunteers to assist them. Upon assessing the store’s overall approach to business, Emily suggests that it needs some kind of draw to lure customers in. She suggests a giveaway promotion, but the sisters have nothing to give away. Emily notes that the trees behind the shop are rife with berries, which many trainers use as valuable PokéBlock ingredients. Deciding that giving away the berries with certain purchases would be a good idea, the sisters and Emily head out back to do some harvesting. Meanwhile, Brendan is eager to try out Seedot’s new attack in battle, and he encounters a challenging trainer on the road. Pitting Seedot against the trainer’s Goldeen, Brendan is confident that his Pokémon’s new Grass-type attack will be super effective against his opponent. But the functioning of the Bullet Seed attack requires a mouth with which to spit the seeds, and Seedot doesn’t have one, rendering the attack useless. A few Peck attacks later, Goldeen defeats Seedot, and Brendan angrily tracks down the boy who gave him the TM and tries to return it. Unfortunately, it’s already burnt out, leaving Brendan with nothing. At the shop, the girls’ berry-picking yields fruitful results, but they have no way of alerting the public of their promotion. Just when it looks as if Natalie will be living in denial forever, a colony of Oddish and Gloom converge on the shop’s entrance - the berries that the girls picked are their prime food source, and they disapprove of their removal. The angry Weed Pokémon launch a cloud of captivating Sweet Scent attacks in retaliation, but as the girls struggle to wave the clouds away, the aroma begins to attract more outside customers who are curious as to what is going on. Realizing that this is their answer, Nicole and Rita offer the Oddish and Gloom all the berries they can eat if they agree to bring in more business - a proposition to which the Pokémon readily agree. Grateful to Emily for helping them out, Nicole and Rita reward Emily with their Wailmer Pail, telling her to use it on blossoming berry trees around Hoenn - to irrigate their own berry trees and flowers, the girls plan to call upon the assistance of the many Lotad in the nearby lake. With the shop saved, Emily pairs up with her travel companions again and sets off for Rustboro, amid Brendan’s complaints about being ripped off.

“Double Your Displeasure”
Episode 1-06
Original Airdate: October 21, 2006

In order to get to Rustboro City, Brendan and the others must cross a bridge stretched over a deep river. However, there’s a rather formidable obstacle in their way - a pair of twin trainers named Mia and Gia who demand a double Pokémon battle. Neither Emily nor Wally own any more than one Pokémon yet, so Brendan accepts the challenge. The twins unleash their Marill and Skitty on Brendan’s Mudkip and Seedot, but as Brendan hasn’t had a double battle before and is quickly confused, unable to keep track of both his Pokémon at once while still analyzing his opponents’ strategy at the same time. Ultimately, Brendan is defeated, and as such, the twins refuse to let him cross the bridge. Disappointed by his loss, Brendan sets off with his friends to train. Meanwhile, Aqua agent Sean is bent on getting to Rustboro City himself, as there is an important mission for him to undertake at the Devon Corporation. Blocked by Mia and Gia, Sean quickly sends out his Nincada and Carvahna to do battle with the girls’ Pokémon, but his effort proves just as futile as Brendan’s, and he is turned back. In the woods, Brendan battles two wild Pokémon at once, but he shows little signs of improving. Wally wants to help his friend, but he only has one Pokémon, so he sets out to capture another one. Exploring the forest, he comes across a colony of Treecko nurturing a still-blossoming seedling of a tree. He is promptly attacked by one of the Treecko, but he swiftly sends out Ralts to combat the Pokémon. When the Treecko attack in numbers, Wally is forced to retreat, rethinking his strategy. Elsewhere in the woods, Brendan’s Mudkip and Seedot have still gained little experience. Just when he is about to throw in the towel, Brendan recognizes Sean stumbling through the woods. Realizing that they both have the same goal in mind, Brendan and Sean quickly engage in a double battle of their own. Brendan takes note of his type advantages and has Mudkip attack the part-Ground Nincada, while Seedot attacks the Water-type Carvanha. Before long, victory is Brendan’s, and Sean angrily rushes off to heal his team. Before Brendan can revel in his victory, Mia and Gia step forth from the brush, having witnessed the battle themselves. Seeing that Brendan is perhaps stronger than they thought, they accept his request for a rematch right then and there. A more confident Brendan engages in battle once more, but his Pokémon are still tired from the fight they had moments before. It looks as if Skitty and Marill will emerge triumphant again...until Wally emerges from the forest, armed with his newly-caught Treecko. He challenges the twins on the spot, thus bailing Brendan out of the difficult situation, and the combined efforts of his Treecko and Ralts prove to be more than ample enough to defeat the two Pokémon. Satisfied with the fact that at least one member of the group beat them, Mia and Gia bid Brendan and the crew farewell as they head on to Rustboro City.

From the get go- this is absolutely pathetic- the anime is 30 minutes long- your episodes are barely 5 minues worth of reading. And whhat's thee is as I said- patheic sumaries at best andd not chapters or parts of a chapter.

You wanna rip the anime off- fine. You want to rip it of pathetically? Again fine.

But people would rather read ORIGINAL OT FICS than corny rip off sumaries.

Funny, nobody had any qualms with all 10 seasons of "Pokémon: Intensity" being in this format.

I never said anything about you being "everywhere at once". I've been posting my "Pokémon: Intensity" seasons for months - heck, since I registered here in 2004 - and nobody ever said anything about them being in the improper format. Now as soon as I post another series in the same format, people are all over me for it. Might I ask how ten seasons (seven of which were posted twice) and 13 HoSo specials went totally unnoticed by the moderators?

Oh, and if I may play "Rebuttal" with Yami Ryu...

First of all, how long it takes you to read the episode synopsis and how long it would take the actual episode to play out are two completely different things. They're called "summaries" for a reason. Just because they're not as longwinded and minutely detailed as the summaries on the main page of the site, it doesn't mean they're any less legit.

Secondly, I fail to see how I'm ripping off the anime. Granted, it takes place in Hoenn and it features characters on a Pokémon journey, but as far as I'm concerned, the similarities end there. Brendan, Emily, and Wally have different personalities than Ash, May, and Brock, and the episodes set in the same locations from the anime have very different plots (compare and contrast "Zero Flower" to "The Lotad Lowdown", why don't you?). I'm not saying you have to like it, but please don't speak for everyone when you're only going on your own opinion.

Because they have lives and obviously your rabid 'fans' or lack there of, never read the rules nor reported you.

You are supposed to post CHAPTERS- not very poor, very pale summaries of chapters that make the guids on SPPF look fantastic and expressive in knowledge. No, what you have here is bunched up, rushed, very tacky and very poor summaries, not chapters which by rules are what you're supposed to post. And from these rushed, tacky chapters come off as shallow characters and shallower plots taken from the anime- puns included. I don't care if it's only vaugely or wholely ripping the anime off- you still are doing it in a very bad way.

And if I can read your very tacky summaries in five minutes each, that should tell you something. That critical information is rushed, squashed and smashed together to give the person all the icky details, yet none of the drama, development, battling or etc for it.

Which makes for something from a Scifi movie as of late.

And that's not good.

And yes, because your summaries are pathetically small, bunched and squashed, they are boring. There is nothing to grab readers and suck them in. It's just a very, very sad and tacky excuse for you to get around putting any real effort into writing something worthwhile to read. Just because it's short does not mean it's better. And on their own they are way to short to even be called a chapter.

Now if you had lengthend them out, flushed them with detail and character development. Thrown in some battles and whatnot, you might have a good series, and something to be proud of.

So you still want to claim your summaries are still something bright and beautiful? Or are you going to come out of hiding from behind these socalled fans, actually listen to the moderater, take your rear over to the threads she suggested to you, and read them?

How 'bout you get the hell off my back and stop telling me how to write? This is my art, and I'll express myself however the hell I feel. And if the moderators of this forum want to put restrictions on my freedom of artistic expression, then I have no business sharing my fanworks with anybody here. If you're too wrapped up in following the rules that other people created for you to care about the actual substance, then I don't want you reading my work anyway.

ZephyrFlare or somebody else, please close this thread. I am officially retiring from writing "Pokémon" fanfiction, effective immediately. I refuse to attempt to function in an environment that only cares about getting things right according to the higher-ups.

Honestly. What works about the episode summaries on the friggin' site is because there is VISUAL PICTURE BACK UP. What do you have? Text.

Unless you put the effort in to help a reader visualise a scene and whats going on, it becomes near unreadable. It IS doable in episode summaries, it has been done and left alone because the readers could do so. Just because you haven't doesn;t mean that the world is ending and those horrid mean people are out to eat your socks.

You chose one of the hardest choices for writting, proper script is perhaps the nearest rival in that sense. So is it really our fault when we try nd help and even suggest? You'd rather back down and cower in a corner then remotely bother to try and use the advice thread and Author's to improve?

Your loss.
