A Special Shipping Story
The Viridian Forest: a beautiful forest, peaceful, quiet. The forest is home to many Pokémon, living out their lives, as if nothing is wrong. Seasons come and pass every year in Viridian, bringing new life to the forest each time. The forest itself is beautiful, with the leaves of an emerald green hue on the trees and flowers blooming on the bushes. On this day, an unexpected visitor has entered the forest. A shining, blue bubble floats down into the depths of the forest, glimmering against the dim light from the sun passing through the leaves of the trees. The mysterious bubble lands on a nearby rock. At that moment, the bubble begins to shrink and a new figure starts to take shape. From the bubble came a small, furry creature with pink fur, a long tail, and big eyes; it is none other than the legendary Pokémon from which many legends speak of as the ancestor of all Pokémon, Mew. The small Pokémon looked around its surroundings, alert to any disturbances it may have to overcome. When it seemed safe, Mew began to float upwards and fly around the forest, but, It was unaware of the predator that was waiting for it in the bushes…………….
“Wait!!! Chu-chu, you’re running too fast!”
A girl wearing a straw hat and a yellow dress frantically yelled out to her Pikachu, Chu-chu. This girl is known as Yellow, a trainer known as “the Healer” by the renowned Pokémon Professor, Professor Oak. She, along with other trainers, have been recognized as some of the best trainers in the Kanto region.
She finally caught up to the little electric mouse and picked her up. “Chu-chu, don’t run off like that again. It’s hard for me to catch up!” she said as she scolded Chu-chu. “…..It’s okay Chu-chu, I am not mad at you.” Yellow put Chu-chu back on the ground as they walked together through a meadow full of daises outside the Viridian Forest.
Yellow was not like regular trainers though, she had a special power that enabled her to read the thoughts of Pokémon, and heal their wounds. There is a legend in Viridian City that states that every couple years, a child will be born with powers bestowed upon them from the Viridian Forest, and Yellow is one of those children with this special gift.
“Chu-chu, why don’t we go into the forest for a while? Afterwards, we can go see Pika!” Chu-chu jumped with excitement as soon as Yellow mentioned the name. Pika is another Pikachu, just like Chu-chu. Pika has traveled with Yellow before, but he originally belongs to a trainer recognized as “the Battler” by Prof. Oak, his name is Red. Red is one of the strongest trainers around. He has accomplished many things, including winning the Pokémon League Championship. He also qualified as a gym leader for Viridian City, but instead, passed the position on to his old time friend and rival, Green.
Pika and Chu-chu produced an egg while they were with Yellow in Johto, which hatched into a Pichu. Pichu is living with another trainer in Johto, but Pika and Chu-chu are still close.
Yellow reached the forest and began to look around. She loved the forest as if it was her home. “Hmmmmm, come to think of it, I should see Red too…..” Yellow said as she was looking at the trees in the forest. She has formed a special friendship with Red, ever since she rescued him many years ago at Cerise Island, during a siege from the Elite Four’s Champion, Lance.
Lance was just like Yellow, a trainer gifted with the powers of the Viridian Forest. After she defeated Lance, Red has become friends with her. Over the years, she became close to Red, developing strong feelings towards him. “I want to tell him one day…” She said. “I hope, he will understand……”
Suddenly, Chu-chu jumped to her feet and began to listen closely, twitching her ears. “What’s wrong Chu-chu?” Yellow reached for Chu-chu and placed the palm of her hand on Chu-chu’s head, reading her thoughts. “………………………Oh no! C’mon Chu-chu, we have to hurry!” Yellow reached for her belt and pulled out a poke ball. She threw it and from it came a three headed bird Pokémon, her Dodrio named Dodosk.
Yellow and Chu-chu hopped on Dodosks’ back and all three of them ran deeper into the forest. “Dodosk, please run faster, or else that Pokémon will not survive much longer!” They ran deeper and deeper into the forest, zooming past the Pokémon that were wandering around looking for food, until they reached an old boulder in the deepest part of the forest, where no sunlight could pass through the trees. This was a part of the forest that Yellow rarely ventures into, seeing as hardly any Pokémon would want to live in that secluded area. The boulder was covered in moss from being left untouched in the forest for so long, but the soil around the boulder looked like something has been digging there.
Yellow looked around; she could see no sign of a struggle, nor could she see any sign of the creature that was calling for her help.
“That’s strange, I heard the Pokémon’s voice coming from this direction, but where is it?” Yellow asked herself this question as she began to walk around the boulder with Dodosk and Chu-chu, hoping to find the location of the Pokémon.
“Huh, that was the voice.” Yellow said. She began to listen closely to the voice. It appeared to be coming from the boulder, but where is the Pokémon? Chu-chu began to twitch her ears rapidly until she picked up the sound of the Pokémon again.
“Chu-chu, have you found it yet?” Chu-chu nodded at Yellow and pointed at a small den under the boulder. “Alright. I’ll see what is there.” Yellow knelt down and looked into the den. What she saw amazed her. The Pokémon that was calling to her was Mew! She looked at it closely and saw that it was covered with cuts and bruises and could barely move. “Mew must have been trying get help using the last of its strength.” Yellow said as she picked up the pink creature in her arms. “……………..Mew’s injuries are very bad. Chu-chu, Dodosk! We need to get Mew out of the forest, before its wounds get any worse!” Yellow placed Mew in her bag and hopped back on Dodosk with Chu-chu. They ran out of the forest as fast as they can, towards Viridian City. What they didn’t know was that the predator that has been stalking Mew had seen Yellow take Mew. It blinked once and disappeared into the depths of the forest.
Yellow placed Mew inside a small basket at her home in Viridian City. The little Pokémon lay there, shivering as Yellow put some medicine on its wounds. “Hang in there Mew, you can make it through.” She thought to herself. The house remained quiet; void of any noise other than a clock hanging on the wall, ticking away as seconds and minutes go by.
Then she heard a knock at the door. “Hey! Yellow! Are you home right now?”
Upon hearing that voice, Yellow began to blush. She and Chu-chu raced towards the door and answered it. In the doorway stood a boy wearing a red jacket, with a hat in the same color. On his shoulders sat a male Pikachu, staring at Chu-chu. They boy in the door way was none other than “the Battler” and Champion of the 9th annual Pokémon League, Red.
“Ummm, H-hey, Red.” Stuttered Yellow as she invited Red into her home.
“Yellow, where were you? We were supposed to go to the city for lunch. Did something happen?”
Yellow looked over at Pika and Chu-chu, who were cuddling next to each other, and then she looked back at Red.
“Well, I did find something…”
“What is it?”
“I’ll show you…..”
Yellow walked Red over to a small basket, filled with blankets. “I found this injured Pokémon in the Viridian Forest.”
Red looked inside and jumped back. “Y-yellow! It’s Mew!” He himself has encountered Mew before in the past, when he first met another girl named Blue.
Yellow nodded at his response and explained to him what has happened. “Mew began to call out to me, but I am not sure what happened to it…”
Red looked at Yellow. Seeing her worried look, he couldn’t help but feel sorry for both the injured creature and his friend who was in conflict of what she could do to help Mew.
Red finally sighed and put his arm around Yellow’s back. “It’s okay, for now, I’ll stay with you if you need any help taking care of Mew.”
Yellow blushed and nodded; she was glad that Red is going to help her, because she could be with him.
Yellow looked down into the basket, feeling sorry for Mew in its bad shape.
“Hopefully, Mew will get better soon.”
“Don’t worry, I’m sure it will.”
While they sat on the couch in her living room, they were unaware of the dark looking creature lurking deep within the forest, still waiting for its prey………….
