Carriscore is a conjunction of Carrier and Score. This can be interpreted in many different ways, whether it is direct definition or slang. It is supposed to correlate several random tangents that attempt to make use of its various definitions. It is also because it happened to be the title of my word document that contains this.
This is rated PG-13, simply because I highly doubt it would be rated G. It’s not that happy and peaceful, probably has swearwords, and possibly uses sexual innuendos. I believe this is a fair generic rating.
This is my first fanfiction. Or rather, it is the second, derived from the first one. This was rather excitedly anticipated, so I produced enough to be able to start submitting the first sections. The shipping provided in this fiction is Questshipping, representing the characters Kenta and Marina, who appear in the special hoso The Legend of Thunder.
Disclaimer: I do not own pokemon, any characters, attacks, settings, or the basic concept of it.
Other than that, enjoy!
Warning: The prologue is a relative introduction. It does not contain any real shipping at all. It is intended to progressively increase overtime, rather than start right off the bat. My personal understanding of shipping is the romance or the relationship between two given characters. Thus, like romance stories, it is noticeable, but also progressive. Thought processes of the two characters are not there 100%, though progressive interaction I would find appropriate. If it is not shippy enough, I'll make the immediate adjustment.
Prologue: The Journey of One
Two years ago …. *Flashback ensues*
The sun had set far into the horizon. The blazing glare of the sun shined throughout the Jouto region. The day was sunny, with few clouds. The grass was green, wind breezed, and a pokemon championship was in session.
A large stadium is seen, filled with a roaring crowd. The large stadium is known as the Silver Convention. It is the renowned location for the Jouto League, located to the Northeast sector of the entire region. Inside the stadium a large scoreboard is seen with the pictures of two trainers, a young boy and a young girl. Both were from the same hometown, and both had one pokemon left each.
“Bakuphoon, denkousekka (Quick Attack)!” exclaimed a young boy dressed in a red jacket with white pockets and yellow shorts with black lining. He had black spiky hair that hung in front of his reverse worn cap, as well as a large backpack. The backpack was that of a gray colour, and did not have much flare to it. It also had the silhouette of a pokeball engraved on the back of it.
Bakuphoon (Typhlosion) launched a powerful quick attack at lightning speed, to the extent that it was so fast, that it appears as though it had teleported. At the lightning speed it hit the opponent’s Denryuu (Ampharos) back. However, the Denryuu was strong and did not hold back.
“DenDen, mamoru (Protect)!” shouted by a young girl dressed in a pink shirt, a white jacket, yellow shorts with black lining. She had blue hair in the shape of spiked pigtails that went outward and forward. So viewing her side you normally would not be able to see her ears. She had a small pink backpack, as well as a Muumu floating next to her.
Denryuu produced an invisible circle, that when made contact with, would nullify any physical component that had opposition against it. Bakuphoon charged hard and quickly. The force of the blow was nullified, but it did not change the fact that Denryuu was propelled far enough to be susceptible to a follow up attack.
“Bakuphoon, kaenhousha (Flamethrower)!” the boy commanded.
“DenDen, hikarinokabe (Light Screen)!” ordered the girl.
Bakuphoon produced a large stream of fire directed at the shielded Denyruu. Like the defense of Protect, Light Screen also warded off the aggressive attack.
“Hm, projectiles don’t seem to be very useful against you.”
“It’s easy to defend if you know it is coming.”
“In that case … Bakuphoon, Thunder Punch now!”
“Denryuu, cancel it out with your Fire Punch!”
The two different elemental attacks clash. The friction from the contact of the two fists of the two pokemon creates a small flash as well as a minor explosion. Since Bakuphoon is a fire type, it was rather unaffected by Denryuu’s burning fist. Likewise, Denryuu was rather unaffected by Bakuphoon’s shocking punch.
It seemed as though it was a relative stalemate. Like their trainers, neither pokemon were backing down, nor did either have the upper hand. Both the boy and the girl had the maximum amount of confidence that he or she can produce. This was a long, intense battle that seemed to have no end, had stamina or fatigue not existed. They both knew the battle could not wear on much longer, so the look on their eyes presented one last final attack.
“So, ran out of options yet?” asked the girl.
“I still have one option left!” responded the boy.
“DenDen, Kaminari (Thunder)!”
“Bakuphoon, kaenguruma (Flame Wheel)!”
Denryuu produced a large force of electricity, exceeding the power of one hundred thousand volts. Bakuphoon on the other hand used an unorthodox method and charged into the massive electrical current, which normally would be enough voltage to knock a Kairyuu (Dragonite) unconscious. As the electricity and the fire clashed, the concentration of the fire was so large that it dissipated the electricity, since the fire fully surrounded Bakuphoon, it was not a strong conductor traveling like a mobile pokemon fireball. However, it was not as if the electricity was negated, as several volts were indeed able to transfer into the roaring Bakuphoon.
The large electrical current was scattered into several smaller currents that essentially went around the Flame Wheel. The Flame Wheel had been such a large amount of fire that the electricity could not generate any pinpoint accuracy, thus the attack was nowhere near a clean hit.
Both trainers look intently at the fierce battle, unable to notice whether Denryuu’s Thunder will pulverise Bakuphoon, or if Bakuphoon’s Flame Wheel will override the Thunder and successfully get to Denryuu. Both Bakuphoon and Denryuu shared the same faces that their respective trainers presented.
A quick time passes which may have seemed forever, and a large explosion occurs. This was not anticipated to be so imminent, yet Bakuphoon had charged so quickly that Thunder did not have enough time to be fired at full power. A large amount of smoke was produced by the large explosion. Neither trainer nor the entire crowd could see the field, let alone anything but smoke. After a short duration of wait and worry, the smoke clears.
A Bakuphoon is found lying down, heavily injured. Denryuu was seen standing, breathing heavily. Unexpected to the majority of the crowd, Bakuphoon struggled to get up. It did not want to give in, it did not want to lose. However, it does not change the fact that it was unable to further battle. When Bakuphoon stood up straight, it looked right into the eyes of the electric dragon Denryuu.
After Denryuu breathed heavily for what seemed like forever, it decided to smirk. The boy was afraid that it had won the battle, having more stamina left than his Bakuphoon. To his surprise, Denryuu fell to the ground.
“Denryuu is unable to battle, Bakuphoon wins! Kenta from Wakaba Town is the new champion!” announced the announcer.
This boy, Kenta: raising pokemon, battling with pokemon, maturing alongside with pokemon. Wherever he goes, he is just a highly normal young man. This is a tale of the possibilities for people who love pokemon ….
Ah! Atarashii kaze ni fukaretemo (Ah! Even if I am blown by a new wind!)
Kawaranai ore no yume (My dream will not change)
Sou! Pokemon Masutaa! (Yes! Pokemon Master!)
Madamada sekai wa hiroitte (The world is still very wide)
Chiheisen ga oshiete-kurete’ru yo (Is what the horizon assures me)
Madamada gooru wa tooitte (And my goal is still far away)
Wakaru to kyaku ni moechau ze! (I know that, but it gets me even more excited!)
Mabushikute ookikute moete’ru (To the big, brightly burning)
Ano asahi ni hitori chikau (Morning sun, alone I vow: )
“Zettai kaenai!” (“I absolutely won’t lose!)
Ah! Atarashii daichi ni tattemo (Ah! Even if I stand on new ground)
Kwaranai ore no michi (My road will not change)
Rara kaze to issho ni! (La-la, going along with the wind)
Ah! Atarashii raibaru arawaretemo (Ah! Even if a new rival appears)
Kawaranai koukishin (My curiousity will not change)
Saa! Batoru shiyou ze! (Come on! Let’s battle!)
Ra, ra, ra, ra, ra, ra, ra, ra! (La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la!)
“Congratulations on your victory, Kenta,” the girl commented, “Another tournament trophy added to your collection.”
“Yeah, that makes three now. Your Denryuu is really strong!” Kenta said.
“Your Bakuphoon only gets stronger time and time again.”
“It has no limit. We will continue to grow stronger and mature even more.”
“Of course, I’ll win some championship some other time and surpass you. To surpass Wataru-sama’s level I must become stronger than you.”
“If you do.”
“Not if, when I surpass you!”
A small breeze of wind passes by the two trainers. The girl’s hair is blown gracefully across the wind as Kenta appears stagnant. Kenta laughs at the thought but results in a normal smile.
“Hey, you busy this evening?”
“Yeah I’ll have some free time. Let’s eat dinner later. We have lots of catching up to do.”
“Alright, see you then.”
“See you later Kenta.”
After the battle had ended, the girl is seen walking downtown. The night was dark with some clouds, but otherwise no unusual weather. There were surely no dark clouds and most definitely no thunder.
Watashi Marina. Juurokusai. The hyper cute, special lovely Idol Trainer from Wakaba Town! Marina does a short spin move and a little dance jig to cheer herself up. She puts a big smile to her face, despite the finals loss. She’s happy that she did her best, regardless of the outcome. Of course, she is also happy that Kenta won. She decided to not look at him for a certain duration like she normally did. Rather, she preferred to be the one to be looked at, since she likes the attention given that she intends to aim to become an Idol Trainer.
Kenta looked at Marina from slightly afar and smiled, before moving on. He had felt victorious. He knew that Marina put up her best battling abilities, thus he does not feel bad about defeating her at all. In fact, he would be furious if she had let him win or if she did not put up her best battling ability. As he looked up to the sky, he put up a sigh of relief. Despite the excitement that he had one, he was also tired after a long battle. He will celebrate when he attains his award, as well as when he returns home to see his beloved mother again.
Marina had left for the pokemon centre immediately to recover her fallen pokemon. She had decided to go to the green videophone located on the right side of the building right after depositing her six pokemon to the Nurse Joy operating it. Her hand reached over to dial a number which reached a professor far too familiar.
Utsugi-hakase responded to the phone, inquiring her how things are going. Marina is seen responding on how she battled long and hard up to the finals, but ended up coming short losing to Kenta. Utsugi-hakase replied that all tournaments have their ventures and that winning cannot come all the time. Marina is not dissatisfied with the loss, even though the victory would have been nice to represent Wakaba Town. Of course, a trophy will still be brought home to her hometown.
Unfortunately, the whereabouts of Jun’ichi are unknown. Utsugi-hakase had informed Marina that Jun’ichi last contacted him in the Fusube City (Blackthorn City). Since he had recently attained his eighth badge, it was impossible for him to attend the same Silver Convention as Kenta and Marina and will have to attend the one that occurs a several months later. Well, slow and steady wins the race.
Kenta is seen walking towards a lighted park. He decided to release his six pokemon that he carried to allow them to enjoy the scenery. Congratulating his pokemon on his victory, his goal remains in good continuity, not swerving away from it and overcoming his latest challenge.
However, many endeavours will occur, and they have many more things to experience. As Kenta is relaxing with his pokemon in the park, a red haired character is seen in the background approaching him.
End of Prologue
Author’s Note: I utilize the Japanese names of the characters due to the fact that the character names in Questshipping are the Japanese ones, and not the English ones. Thus, to maintain consistency, I try to utilize Romanji spelling of the Japanese names as much as possible, though I will note what I refer to. However, since this is strictly an English fanfiction, usage of any Japanese would be rather rare, and something such as pokemon attacks will not all be in Japanese. Items will be the Japanese notation, but not in Romanji. I do not use the dub names because the special hoso that contained Kenta and Marina never existed in the US, meaning that technically, the dub name does not exist. Also, the only dub reference that was used in a certain episode had no direct reference, only the names. My personal writing may be written in English, so some spellings can vary. You won’t see very many z’s.
This is a prologue, so it is shorter than the average intended chapter. It is intended to present a basic presentation of the main charactres and their pokemon. Nothing of the main summary has been presented, the flashback is not over, and several many various things are yet to occur. Nothing will be imminent.
The shipping is intended to be progressive, starting from almost no shipping to a lot more shipping. It is intended to have a fluctuated increase in shipping amount per chapter, so it comes relatively overtime and does not have significant current effects.
Because this is shipping, I do not intend to put much description into any pokemon. However, this does not change the fact that Kenta as a character has the aspiration to become a great trainer, travelling and maturing along with pokemon. Thus, I will incorporate the pokemon, but it will not be mentioned to a very large degree. Most of it intends to be personal interaction among various things.
I intended to maintain several components that were relatively hoso or anime mentioned. One example of one thing differently is that of using a Denryuu. This is actually yet another tangent.
This is a work in progress. The main summary is long completed, though I am making several adjustments here and there to improve the content and presentation of each and every chapter. I hope to improve my writing ability as well as maintain your interest in reading this fiction. Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this start as I intend to have the plot setup to become more interesting progressively. Reviews, commentary, suggestions, etc are appreciated. Feel free to post any of that.
I have finals for the next three days currently. As soon as it subsides, I can go full throttle in writing. Like the pace of the story, it starts off slow and steady, then progressively quickens, to a rather small degree.
Also thanks to those that helped me throttle some ideas and gave me the interest to write this again.
