The Wrong House
“Go, Charizard!,” Jonathon Que yelled out, throwing a Pokeball into the yellow sunset sky of Vermillion City. A large scaly Charizard popped out of the Pokeball, giving an echoing roar that filled his and his opponent’s ears. It flew in the air, then stomped menacingly on the ground. The earth shook vigorously.
“Ha!,” laughed Freddy Dodson in intimidation, “Go, Steelix!.” Freddy threw his own Pokeball into the air. A gigantic metal Steelix popped out, it’s rocky body quickly dug into the near by dirt. It gave a loud ominous moan.
“Use Flamethrower, Charizard!” Que yelled, pointing at Freddy’s Steelix, who’s head was poking out of the ground. His Charizard nodded, then looked at the Steelix. It blasted the Steelix with fire, but it poked it’s head back into the ground; Charizard had missed.
“Nice job Steelix, now use Earthquake!,” Dodson yelled. Suddenly, the earth shook beneath Que’s legs. He fell on the dirt, but his Charizard flew from the ground with his mighty wings, avoiding the ground.
“You idiot!,” Que laughed, “He’s part Flying type!” Que got up, dusting off his pants, he had a wide smile across his face. “Use Fire Spin, Charizard!” His Charizard opened his mouth and blasted a spiral of fire. The Steelix headed back underground, but the spiral of fire followed. Moans were heard through the dirt.
It was quite. Que and Dodson looked at each other, Que was smiling. The Steelix’s head popped out of the ground, dirt and sand shot upward. Dust filled the air, then Que could see it’s face. The Steelix’s eyes were closed. It snored heavily.
“Aw man,” Dodson moaned, he grabbed his Pokeball and sent his Steelix back. Que put his Charizard back into his own Pokeball as well. They stood on the dirt ground in the outskirts of Vermillion City. The shook hands.
“You did good, Freddy,” Que said, padding him on the back. “Although you should have known Charizard is Fire and Flying type.” Your Steelix did wonderful, he can dodge moves nicely with his Dig.”
“Thanks,” Dodson said as he kicked the ground, “I can’t believe I forgot about Charizard’s typing. It won’t happen again, I promise you that.”
Jonathon Que was a thin fifteen year old trainer with blonde hair that was cut military style. He was known well in Vermillion because he was trained by Lt. Surge, the Electric trainer Gym Leader of the city. He was a good trainer and was skilled with his main Pokemon, Charizard in which he got from the famous Pokemon Professor Oak when it was just a small Charmander. His main team consisted of a Charizard, Arbok, Lanturn, Dragonair, Togekiss, and an egg which he got as a gift; it had not hatched yet.
Freddy Dodson was a somewhat chubby trainer, the same age as Que. He had long curly black hair and was far smarter than Que. Dodson was the opposite in many ways, he was chubby and unfit while Que was very fit. Dodson also wasn’t good at training with his Pokemon, while Que was almost to his eighth Gym Badge. He never got a Pokemon from a professor like many other trainers, he was given an Onix from his father which later evolved into a Steelix. His team consisted of a Steelix, Magneton, Beedrill, Golduck, Metang, and a Noctowl.
They met in Trainer School at age five, and became friends since then. They didn’t have much in common, yet there was something that kept them together. They grew up together, battling their Pokemon together, and learning together. Que helped Dodson train while Dodson helped Que learn math and computers.
They headed back to the city, waving hi to some old man who was making Machops stomp on the ground. They traveled on the dirt trail which slowly turned to a road with cars passing through at dangerous speed. They walked to a group of building that were built next to the city’s Gym in which Que was familiar with greatly.
They made it back to Dodson’s house, third from the Gym, when they saw something in the sky. It was moving in zigzag lines, with the sound of hideous squealing. Que and Dodson stared at the sky, confused yet very curious. The object moved closer to the ground and they were able to see the image.
It was a Chatot, flying clumsily across the sky. It was being dragged by a package that was tied to it’s leg. It crashed into Dodson’s neighbor’s roof. It fell from the roof and landed on the cement sidewalk.
“Oh my Arceus!,” yelled Dodson. They ran to the Chatot, and looked at it as it squealed around the ground, flapping it’s wings. “Hey, are you okay?”
“Are you okay?,” it squealed at them, “Are you okay? Are you okay?”
“It’s a Chatot, Freddy,” Que said, picking the Pokemon up, “it can repeat what you say, it can talk. But, this guy is a messenger and has a package for your neighbor.”
“Yeah, lets give it to Mr. Gray.”
“What? No, lets see what’s in it.”
“Why would you want to do that? He’s home right now, he’ll notice!”
“But, what if-?”
“I’m sure it has nothing to do with Team Rocket. He doesn’t do that stuff anymore, not since that Giovanni guy was sent to jail.”
“Well, I’m going to steal it and you can’t stop me!,” yelled Que. He grabbed the package from the Chatot’s leg and it flew away. He ran to his house, a few yards away, and ran inside it. Dodson ran slowly after him. He gave up half way and walked inside.
He opened the door, and saw Que tearing the box open. Dodson yelled in anger. Que was laughing to himself. He picked up the objects inside, the Dodson suddenly went silent. It was three disc, all vividly colored. Dodson opened his mouth in total aw.
“What are they?,” Que asked, holding the disc to his head.
“It’s the Porygon Series!,” Dodson cheered, he took them from Que’s hands. “These two disc can evolve a Porygon! They’re really rare!”
“Rare? Sweet. Lets sell them!”
“No. you’re the Pokemon expert, you should know that we should keep these. But, I don’t know what this third one is.”
“Maybe evolves the Porygon again.”
“I’ve never heard of another Porygon besides Porygon, Porygon 2, and Porygon Z. this must do something else. Lets try putting into your computer.”
“Sure, lets do it. Mr. Gray must be pretty angry though.”
Dodson went to his PC, an Abra10, and put the disc that they couldn’t figure out into the server. They looked at the computer curiously.
The blue screen read:
Dodson clicked on “DISC” and they waited it to load up. Then screen switched colors to a dark blue, then zeros and ones started popping everywhere on the screen.
“It’s a Matrix,” Dodson said, surprised. Suddenly, they heard windows shatter. They ran into the living room and saw a man with red hair with a Primape were standing there.
“Oh ****, it’s Mr. Gray!,” Que yelled. The Primape ran on top of Dodson with amazing speed ad began punching him the face. Que, panicking, threw out a Pokeball and sent out his Dragonair.
The Dragonair looked at Que and Freddy. Then saw the man and the Primape. The Pokemon quickly blasted a lightning strike at the Primape. It was thrown a few feet away, breaking Que’s television set.
Que helped Dodson up. Dodson quickly sent out his Golduck as they saw Mr. Gray sending out a Graveler. It threw rocks at the boys, and Que hit the floor. Dodson’s Golduck spit a blast of water at it and the Graveler slammed against a couch. The ground started moving, because it used Earthquake. The Golduck fell.
Mr. Gray grabbed the two disc and left in a hurry. He sent his two Pokemon back into the Pokeballs. Que and Dodson were in shocked and just watched as he walked to the door.
Que and Dodson stood, looking at the broken window and the broken television set. He rubbed his eyes in fear. It was like a nightmare. “My mom’s gonna kill me!,” Que yelled.
Dodson went back at the computer and looked at all the zeros and ones. Mr. Gray didn’t take the last one. Suddenly the numbers turned into letters that read:
UNABLE TO OPERATE AT CURRENT TIME.
THIS PROGRAM IS THE PROPERTY OF SILPH CORPORATIONS.”
“Silph Co?,” Que said, surprised. “Silph Co made a virus? What for?”
“I don’t know,” Dodson said, “wanna find out?”
