First off, this fic is also on ff.net and by me (Henry X). Second, :…: used to denote when a pokemon is “talking”. By the way, here's the link http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4321043/...Sinnoh_Journey
The Sinnoh Journey
The Two Friends
Sunlight poured through his window, needless to say, waking up the fifteen-year old boy. Looking at the clock on his nightstand he groaned, for it was only 8:30 in the morning.
“Well, I might as well get up…” the boy said as he got out of a bed and headed for his bathroom. Then he heard something near his window; walking over to see what caused the noise, he saw a boy with blonde hair, wearing an orange and white striped polo shirt, black jeans, and brown loafers as well as a green scarf.
“What do you want, Barry?” The boy hollered out of his window.
“Lucas we need to go to the lake!” The boy named Barry answered.
“Alright, but I need to get dressed, I’m not going to do something you would,” Lucas calmly replied. Lucas then went over to his dresser and pulled out some clothes. He quickly threw them on his bed to make sure they matched; he didn’t want to look like a clown. “Let’s see… Red beret, blue cargo pants, white shirt with black vest… that should be everything, well except for my shoes, but I left them downstairs…”
After putting his clothes on, Lucas ran downstairs, put his shoes on, told his mom he was going to see Barry and ran out the door.
“You forgot something,” Barry told Lucas when he ran out the door.
“What did I forget?" Lucas asked, confused.
Lucas ran back inside and back out, putting his red scarf on as he joined Barry, who was already heading out to the lake. On the walk to the lake Barry talked constantly; Lucas wasn’t thinking or paying attention to what Barry was saying, not that Barry ever said anything vital…
“Why are we going to the lake anyway?” Lucas asked.
“I saw a show on TV that talked about a red Gyrados living out in the Lake of Rage, so I thought that there will be a rare or powerful pokemon living in Lake Verity.”
“Well I’m already dressed and we’re nearly there, so I might as well go with you.” Since you’ll drown otherwise.
The two approached a sign that read: Lake Verity Ahead, The Lake of Emotions.
“I guess were here,” Barry said confidently, a smile manifesting itself on his face.
“No **** Sherlock,” Lucas said.
“Well let’s go!”
“Right behind you, Captain Ahab.” And the two entered into a clearing that led to Lake Verity. As the two first came out of the clearing and saw the lake, Barry ran off to the shore and started scanning the lake for a red Gyrados, or maybe just a Gyrados. Lucas however, noticed two people out not even one hundred yards from Barry. One of them was an old man, with white hair and a matching moustache. The other was a girl, who looked to be about Lucas’ own age. She had on pink boots, with black socks that went just slightly higher than her boots, a sleeveless black top, white undershirt that covered her chest, a pink skirt that from the distance Lucas was at, looked rather short, and a white beanie.
The two appeared to be having a conversation. After they were done talking, they started towards the way back to the path that led to Twinleaf Town and Sandgem Town. As they walked by the girl looked at Lucas and he looked back. He noticed that she had beautiful blue eyes and that her beanie had a pink pokeball on the front.
I’ve never seen eyes so beautiful… Lucas thought.
“What are you doing here?” the girl asked.
“Looking over him,” Lucas replied indicating towards Barry, who was still looking for anything.
“Dawn, we best be on our way,” The old man said to the girl.
“Anon, professor.” The girl replied.
Well, she’s read Romeo and Juliet, that’s the only way she would know how to use that word.
After the professor and the girl named Dawn left, Barry walked up and said, “I saw you trying to-"
Lucas smacked Barry across the head before he could finish the sentence.
“Ow! What was that for?”
“Barry I’ve known you for a long time, so I knew what you were going to say. And no, I wasn’t trying to work over that girl.”
“Oh? What do you mean by ‘oh’?”
“Look, I think they left something behind in the tall grass,” Barry said.
“They left something behind; let’s go see what it is.” Barry, after saying that, ran over to what ended up being a briefcase.
:Starly: Suddenly, two birds appeared from the tall grass as the boys got near the briefcase.
“Good job, Barry! Now I’m going to die a virgin!”
“You know what Lucas? Just open up the damn briefcase and see what is in it at least!” Barry shouted back.
“Hey we’re in luck!” Lucas shouted, clearly relieved.
There’s pokeballs in here; take one!” Lucas tossed his friend one of the half-red, half-white orbs.
Lucas and Barry both tossed the two balls and (naturally) two pokemon came out. Barry’s was a turtle-like creature and Lucas’ was a monkey that had a flame sticking out of its rear quarter.
“Damnit! I wanted Chimchar,” Barry complained.
“Now’s not the time to argue; let’s just get rid of these Starlys!”
Barry ordered his Turtwig to be aggressive and attack right away. The Turtwig, without waiting for Barry to tell it to do anything, jumped at the nearest Starly and tackled it. The Starly attempted to dodge the attack, but it didn’t move quickly enough. However, the attack didn’t knock out the wild pokemon. Starly rolled out from underneath Turtwig and flew up. Then the Starly flew up in the air and dove down upon the Turtwig.
Lucas meanwhile was battling conservatively, waiting for the Starly to come in close and then striking. “Chimchar, I know this looks bad, but for both our sakes, will you listen to me?” The monkey-like pokemon nodded in agreement. “Wait for the Starly to get close to us then scratch at its wings.” Lucas ordered the pokemon.
“Turtwig are you all alright?” Barry asked after the Starly dove down onto the Turtwig.
“Alright then, head but! Let’s finish it off!”
As Barry finished up against his Starly, Lucas was waiting for the right moment to attack the Starly so he wouldn’t have to hurt someone else’s Chimchar too badly.
“Bingo!" Chimchar hop on Starly’s back and crash it into the ground!” Chimchar was more than happy to mess with the bird pokemon and when Starly swooped in to drive its beak into Chimchar’s forehead, Chimchar jumped, landed on Starly and started pulling on the feathers on the back of the bird’s head. After a minute of Chimchar holding on for the ride, it finally steered the Starly into a nearby tree.
“Good job Chimchar,” Lucas said as he pulled the pokeball out to return the fire monkey.
“Turtwig, you did great. Return,” Barry said as he also pulled his pokeball out. He pressed the button on the center of the ball and Turtwig turned into a red beam and was sucked into the ball. Lucas did the same.
“Hey there’s that girl you-"
“Shut up Barry…”
The girl from earlier indeed however was running over to the two friends, with a look of shock on her face.
“The nerve of you two…you should be ashamed of yourself; using someone else’s pokemon for a thrill… I’m going to tell the professor about you two.” After scolding the two boys, she stormed off.
“Should we be concerned?” Barry asked his friend.
“I’m not sure, to tell you the truth.”
“She said she was going to tell the professor about us.”
“He can’t be that bad…can he…?” Lucas trailed off.
Tell me what you think. And for those who have seen the story on ff.net, you will have noticed a few changes in punctuation and word placement. Don't worry though, its just to clear up confusion.
EDIT: Please leave a reply telling me how I'm doing with the story.
