Chapter 10: Pokemon academy, where the friendship began.
The traveling trio travel a long dinstance. As the events that occure yesterday went by quickly and the excitement feel from before, is still shaking through their veins. As they saved a wild Golem and its family from fighting any trainers that come their way.
After their initial rest and a good night sleep. They once again headed off on their journey, along with a new trainer. Name Shadow, whom came here to explore the Kanto region. Robert was curious if he would enter the Pokemon League, which he got an awnser that he might. He already got all 8 badges, but he's not sure if he would.
After getting to know each other a little more. Shadow was curious how Yellow and Robert first met, which the two turn their heads at him and smile big. While pointing up ahead, as a building was coming into view. With a sign out on the road that reads. 'Pokemon Academy',
Which Yellow smiled, and ran ahead of Shadow and Robert. Holding tight onto her hat, so it won't get blown off her head. Stop infront of the sign, bobbing against her heels. Waving towards the two. "Hey! Robert it's our old School!" She shouted, as the two came to a stop next to Yellow, at the same time looking at the tall building.
Raising his hand up to his forehead. Robert let out a sigh, "Wow. Brings back memories" He said, while Yellow nodded in agreement. Shadow who was looking at the building, turn to the young trainers. "So..I'm guessing this is where, you two went to school?" He asked, while they both smiled. "Yup! Ruby introduced me to Robert, when I first attended their class year" Yellow said. Looking down with a thoughtful smile.
"Yeah..I wonder if we're allow in" Robert thought out loud, which Shadow chuckle. "I'm sure they will! Come on lets check it out!" He said excitedly, while the three head towards the door of the academy. "Wow..Must've been like 3 years ago, since I met Robert and Ruby." Then Yellow chuckle to herself.
Flashback to 3 years in the past.
The class were chittering and chattering away. As paper planes where being tossed, while some of the kids were running back and forth in rows. Which some of them were lazily sleeping on their desk, with drool dripping out of their mouth. Or some of them playing with the released Pokemon's of the class room. Playing and chatting with them. "Teacher's coming!" Shouted a girl wearing, a blue vest. With a red dress underneith, with brown sweat pants. Shouted to the class room.
Where all the kids were putting away all of the Pokemon, back into their pokeballs. While the rest of them were getted seated into their seats. As they watch the teacher come in slowly, as if he was prepareing something to happen. Once he looked in the room, he saw all the kids smilieing, with their hands folded infront of them on their desks.
After walking inside the room, the teacher stood infront of his own desk. Resting both hands down on it. Clearing his throat, so he knew everyone was paying attention to him. Which he saw some of them were, and the other half were snickering for odd reasons.
Bringing his fisted hand up to his mouth one last time, let out a cough and brought it back to the desk. "Alright every one. Some things that need your attention" Which the class, quieted down, while the girl with the red dress blink her eyes a bit, then looked over to the boy that was sitting next to her. Looked back, as his blue hair sway a bit with his movement. Shruged his shoulders at her.
"The first thing, that needs to be address. That the practice Pokemon battles, will be pushed to after lunch" Which he got alot of the kids groan a bit, but start shouting back up in cheers. Since they can eat lunch before battling. Which the boy and girl clap their hands together and rested them back to the desk.
The teacher chuckle at this, as he knew the class has been waiting for a long time. For the lessons of Pokemon battling. Then raised his hand up to quiet down the class room. Then walked infront of his desk, leaning gently against it. "Also, we have a new class mate joining us today. I hope you all giver her a warm welcome. Come on in!" He raise his voice a bit, while waveing his hand in a come here motion.
Which every one lean forward a bit, as they watch a small girl. Poke her head out from the door slowly, then let out a eep. Seeing how everyone was looking at her, and hid back behind the door. Which made the teacher sigh and walk out the door. "Yellow, come on. No reason to be shy" He said, pushing the distrought girl in. holding tightly against her pikachu doll. Up near her mouth.
Then when she was being the center of attention. She gulp a bit and spoke up slowly. "Hello..My..My name..is Yellow" the girl spoke up, wearing a yellow long sleeve shirt and also long sleeve purple pants. Hugging the pokedoll close to herself. Hoping it will protect her in any way. "Yellow. Tell us where you live" The teacher asked with a smile. Which she lower her head behind the doll a bit more.
Knowing it is the school rules. She was about to speak up before, some one interrupt her. "Why do you have a doll? Are you a baby or something!" As the rest of the class, started laughing at this. Minus 2 of them, whom were glareing at the boy in the far end. Yellow was slowly tearing up, till she was told to sit some where.
Walking slowly down the halls, some of the children were messing with her. As they kept telling her that they don't sit with baby dolls. After reaching the end of the row, she was suddenly stop by the girl in the red dress. "Whoa! Hey, you can sit with us." She said smiling, as the small girl look up at her. "Right Robert?" The older girl asked, while leaning back at him. Who was starring back then shrug. "sure.." He said quietly, which surprise Yellow.
From the looks of the boy. He seems to be one to not sit still long, but hearing how quiet he spoke. Ment that he was very shy around people. Though he never really looked at her any of the time, she will ask how he is. It was like that through the entire school year.
They were in the same class room. That Yellow, Robert and Ruby were in. Which the teacher was surprise to see the two again. As the children in the classrooms eyes, were big like saucers. Seeing Shadow and his Houndoom starring back at them the same fashion. The room was litarly silence at their pressence. "Cooooooooooool" all of them said, as this brought a sweat drop to Shadow.
Who then were bombarded by the children, while Houndoom was suffering from them, pulling on its tail and nose. As Yellow and Robert were laughing hard at this, almost falling to the ground. The teacher then shouted out loud, as his head got huge and all the children without blinking. Were back in their seats, sweating badly.
Also left the three trainers pale too. Robert eye's wide, never noticing the teacher could do that. Which he was glad, that back then. The class were behave. Yellow had to hide Chu in her bag, as the mouse Pokemon was shaking badly. Houndoom lower its head down, like it did something bad. Which Shadow was slowly petting the demon dog Pokemon.
After the initial shock from that. The teacher asked, if they wouldn't mind showing their Pokemon to the class. Which everyone was nodding their heads up and down very fast. Like their heads were ready to pop out. Which the three didn't mind at all.
Robert step up first, grabbing all of his Pokeball's from the belt. "Come on out! Everyone!" He shouted, as the first Pokemon to come out. Was Eevee who sqweak happily at everyone. Tilting its head smiling. Then Pikachu came out next holding up a peace hand, saying its name. Then Butterfree was next, who landed ontop of Robert's head, chittering, while flapping its wings slowly. Next out was Pidgeotto, which some of the kids, who favorited the Pidgey evo line up, went crazy around the bird Pokemon.
Who was handling it quite well, was pushing some of the kids away. Or letting some climb on its back. Robert was smiling at this, seeing how well his Pokemon were getting along with the kids. Next up was Yellow who did the samething, except for her last Pokeball.
Her first Pokemon Chu, came out of her backpack and landed on the floor. Her 2nd Pokemon that came out, was a Beautifly who happily dance in the air a bit. Then landed on Yellow's shoulder. The 3rd Pokemon was Nidorina. who yawned out and layed down on the floor. Leaving Yellow to fume a bit. Ironicly because of her lack of badges, it won't listen to her at all. So she was intending to switch Pokemon that will replace Nidorina.
Finally was Shadow, but said to the class. He wants them to be a surprise. For when he fights in the Pokemon league. Which Robert sweat drop at this. Knowing he just blew it right there and then, showing what Pokemon he had to Shadow. But wasn't gonna let it get to him.
Yellow who was watching the Pokemon played with the children. Brought out another memory back when she was little.
Back in the past..
"This is where the Pokemon den is" Ruby spoke, with her hands opening the door. To where all the first stage slash, baby stages of Pokemon were being kept and taking care of. As the two young girls walked in, carrying a bag that was the size of their palms.
Yellow has now, made sure to keep her Poke doll hung over her shoulder, since some of the kids kept bullying her. By taking the doll away from her and hide it. In the many lockers that were scatter through out the school, Yellow almost got lost when ever she did find her doll. Or will suddenly break down in tears.
But some how, either Ruby or Robert will almost. Instantly knew where to find her all the time. Mostly Ruby though, as she notice Robert kept his distance from Yellow. While only helping out in 3 occausions, like learning about Pokemon. The girl was surprise how vastly knowledgable he is. Ruby though.
Help her through out the entire school year, always sticking by her side. Helping her to each class they go to, or even help her clean out the class rooms. Since she is little, she clung to Ruby like a little sister will to an older sister. The two were practicully in-seperable, no matter where one goes, the other follows.
After walking inside the room. All the Pokemon's were gathering around the two students, as they started giggling at them. All of the Pokemon's were either waiting patiently for their food. While some were rubbing up against their legs, so they could go first.
"Now Yellow, these Pokeblocks will help them grow. Red ones goes with the fire types" She said, as her hand went in the bag, and grab couple of red pokeblocks and threw them. As all the fire types were happily chewing them. Then Yellow looked down at the bag, and did the same motion. But fell forward when she threw them and landed on her face. "Oof...Ow..." She quietly said, as Ruby help her up. chuckling at her clumsyness.
"Wow Yellow. That has to be the 5th time you fell." She smiled, as the blond girl looked up, and chuckle nervously. Scratching the back of her head and sticking her toung out. "S..Sorry, just excited to see all these Pokemon." She said happily, as some of the Pokemon. Were seeing if she was okay, as a Pichu, Cleffa and Igglypuff. Chatter a bit at her. Then Pichu hop along with Cleffa, while Igglybuff spung. When Yellow said she was fine.
After few minutes of feeding the Pokemon, Ruby started flapping the bag up and down. Noticing they were out of pokeblacks. "Dang..Stay here Yellow and watch over them please. I'll get some more" Ruby said, as Yellow who was kneeling down, look up at her and nodded with a smile. Watching Ruby run off, back to the storage room.
Though Yellow kinda, took more in her bag from Ruby. On the account she liked hanging out with Pokemon, also the only time she rarely see Robert near by. After feeding some more Pokemon, she notice how long it was taking Ruby to come back. Which understandable, the last there were in there. All the food fell on top of them, because Yellow hesitantly grab the bottom end.
Which caused everything to topple all over them. After feeding the rest of the Pokemon that surrounded her. She notice a Ralts, was happily just hopping to one spot, then does a twirl and hop to the other. She couldn't help but giggle at that and walked towards the Pokemon.
Truth be told, she never seen a Pokemon like this before. When she approach the small Pokemon, it stop its small dance and looked up at Yellow with a. "Rallts?", it said raising a hand near its chin. Tilting its head to the right, while Yellow kneel infront it.
"Aren't you a cute Pokemon" She said smiling, as the Ralts kicked its leg softly, in a 'aw gosh' fashion. Blushing from the comment. Then Yellow reach inside her bag, bringing out a green Pokeblock. "Are you hungry? Here ya go" Before she could feed it to Ralts. Some one snatch the food away.
"ARE you stupid!? Ralts don't eat those Poke blocks!" The voice shouted from next to her, which she turn around and saw it was Robert! How he got in without her noticing, was beyond her. Which surprise her alot, but then grab the poke doll infront of her. "I'm..s..sorry" She said quietly, as the Ralts put its hands, on its hips. Glareing at Robert, best as possible. Which the boy sighed and shook his head.
"He..Hey" He stutter out quietly. "Its..alr.alright, you didn't know.." He tryed to speak as much as possible. But he was just to shy around new people, and girls at that matter. Took all of Ruby's will power not to thrash the boy. For not saying one sentence to her and believe she will too. Which is why he is nervous around girls.
Then knelt down infront of Ralts, petting its head. Which Yellow looked left and right with her eyes. This is her chance to finally have a conversation with Robert. For most of the school year, he has been a blank slate with her. Never talking or staying long enough for her to talk too. Slightly shifting forward on her knees, she quietly sqweak out.."Umm..You know this pokemon?" . 'Curse my shyness' she thought to herself as she mentally bop herself on the head.
Which Robert turn around and gave his famous smile, that Ruby told her. Sometime the girl will say things like, she will get lost into that smile sometimes. In turn confuse Yellow alot, what ever feeling Ruby had. Yellow didn't felt it, but felt more secure and friendly than any one she saw smilling. Which she couldn't help but smile back too. "Yup! This is Ralts, it wander into the school yard by accendent. Then started playing with me" He said.
There and now is where Robert and Yellow's bond start growing slowly, as they spoke hours upon hours. Which the teachers who went looking for them, never interrupt them at all. Seeing how well Yellow was responding to him, and Robert finally talking in his own accord without Ruby backing him up. Though laugh a few times, when the Pokemon started dog pileing on the two and chase them around. Though one person wasn't really happy about this. As she just smile softly and just walk away.
"He..was my friend before you..." She quietly spoke between sobs.
Back in the present.
Yellow musing was soon shorten, when the Pokemon started playing with the children, as Shadow and Robert were trying their best to get them in the Pokeball. Which was a battle in itself, as the Kids and Pokemon were on one side and the trainers on the other side. Trying to re-call their Pokemon with their Poke ball, as Robert's Eevee suddenly jump up on a desk.
Walking back and forth squeaking as if in command. While the pokemon's were trying to dodge the red beams of their respective Poke ball. Robert then looked at Yellow, who looked a little lost at what happen. "Well, what ever you were day dreaming Yellow. The Pokemon's won't return to their Poke ball" Robert said, as Eevee kicked a eraser at Robert, which it bounce off from his head. Then he slowly turn his head at Eevee, with a smirk.
The brown pokemon gulp and was about to jump off the desk before, Robert caught him in the red beam and returned it back in the Pokeball. Which everyone looked at Robert, who turn the pokeball at his face. Then nodded and looked at the rest. Giving off his best glare at everyone as he could. Which they all gulp and continue their battle over the trainers.
Few hours has gone by and everyone was enjoying themselfs. As the teacher took this oppatunity, for the traveling trio to tell the kids about a Trainers life. Of course they avoided some of their most dangerous parts of their journey, but Robert did mention that it still can be dangerous to be a Pokemon trainer.
Which some of the kids, didn't understood what he ment. But when they looked at Yellow and Shadow, the two them smile softly and nodded at them. Telling them that you have to be consisderait over the wild Pokemon.
The Pokemon all live in peacefully in nature, and that some of them will get frighten, or will try and protect their home turf. From any one that will hunt or hurt them, but still. You can capture the Pokemon as long, as it is intent to capture and not just for tools.
Then Yellow continue for Robert and Shadow, as she explain that capture Pokemon. is like your family, where you have to take care of them and raise them properly, if you want to be trusted with them. After words, explain how Robert's Pokemon are always close to him, is because he cares for them and treat them like true partners. Which they know he will never fail them.
Robert was scratching the back of his head, as his blue hair move a bit as Butterfree nudges against him. While Pidgeyotto move one wing out and chirp. The kids were all looking at Robert carefully, as he sweat drop at all the eyes, that were starring at him. Then they shouted cool. After Yellow told them, that he defeated Brock with Eevee.
Shadow was listening carefully, of how the battle went out. When Robert told the kids, how he defeated Brock on his second try and showing his gym badge to them. As they all gather around him. Which Shadow just pet Houndoom, impress of how he won. Then looked at the corner of his eye, seeing Yellow looking at something in her hand, and could've sworn. It was a Boulderbadge in her hand, then quickly put it away. When Robert spoke to her.
"So? Yellow is entering the Pokemon league too..But" looks at Robert who was now chatting with her. "Seems like Robert doesn't know." Then lean back on his chair chuckling at this logic. "So Yellow, what plans do you have for this? I wonder.." Then fell over, flailing his arms, as he landed backwards on the floor. With Houndoom covering its face, with its paw. Then lift one up to see if he was alright.
After the teacher help up Shadow. The school bell started ringing, signafying that it was lunch time. Which all the kids groan outloud, wanting to hear more from the trainers. Which the teacher said, that they are probably busy right now. Turning towards the trio, "Robert, your next gym battle is in Cerulian city. The gym leader there is Misty" He said, handing the three some spare potions and other healing items.
"Hey thanks! Okay, so Misty is the gym leader.." Robert said to himself, going into his thinking position walking out the door. Muttering to himself, as Shadow just watch the young boy walked out without him and Yellow. Then turn to said girl and point at Robert. "Does he do this alot?"He asked, as Yellow sighed with a smile and patted on his shoulder. "You will get use to it" She said, walking out the door catching up with Robert.
Then Shadow looked down at Houndoom, "What did she mean by that?" He asked, which houndoom bark to him. In turn was more of a I don't know response. As the last two follow both young trainers out.
Before they fully left, Yellow was walking around the playground, finding a certain tree in the fields. Which was easy to find. Then walked behind it where the wall was. Then carefully ran her hands through the tree bark. As she found Ruby,Robert and her initials on the tree. Saying "Best friends forever" carve on the tree, as she saw ghost images. Of her, Ruby and Robert as little kids.
Trying their best to write their initials, as Ruby and Robert fought over their own, since they both had an R in their first names. So they went with Ruby being just 3 letters. 'RBY' Though they didn't complain as it turn out correct, as they pernounce her name, it fit perfectly for the 3 words. Then Robert's initial came next, then Yellow, who trip over Robert's foot and slam against Ruby, while her foot slam into Robert chin causing all three of them to fall on the ground.
Which Yellow laughed from that memory, and heard Robert calling her. Which took one last look at their initials and spoke to herself. "Best Friends Forever. Right Ruby and Robert?" She said with a smile and ran to catch up to Shadow and Robert, as they continue their journey.
As the after images of their kids selfs, waving good bye to the traveling trio.
Cerulian city is where their next location is
