Whoosh! Keeping to my deadline, I finished my chapter yesterday! I kinda skipped on releasing it as my internet exploded on me yesterday and I decided it wasn't worth the effort to fix it, so had it proof-read instead. Yay. (My internet is still somewhat shot, bah).
Say you have a Pokemon-world character out to challenge the Gyms starting from scratch. What items does s/he need on this journey?
Considering it's unlikely they would go on such an adventure without stopping out to camp - stuff like a portable tent, sleeping bag... and of course, toilet paper. =P Basically the essentials would be up there, and if they weren't I'd imagine they would soon enough become one. Plus one of those super-special bottomless bags they have in the games nowadays. =P (Along with the handy dandy portable bike!) But some shelter equipment would be needed, I'd imagine. Food supplies not only for the trainer but their Pokemon as well (unless, say, the Pokemon was a herbivore, or hunted!), and a large supply of Pokeballs. Come to think of it, actually - I don't recall seeing many/any instances of a trainer realising they ran out of Pokeballs.
