Chapter 13: Day care rescue!
It's been almost 5 days, after they left the Cerulean gym and Cerulean city. Traveling south for their next destination, which they were constantly stopping and going. On the account, Robert and Eevee were in good moods, and went for capturing any Pokemon they spotted.
Shadow and Yellow just sat back on a stone, as they were now resting from traveling. While Robert and Eevee went off to train and capture Pokemon. Though they had to constantly hold themselfs back, from chasing after the two.
Yellow who was just, resting her back against the tree. Was silently watching the clouds go by. Remenicing her past battles of the gyms. Brock mostly gave her a hard time, since her Pokemon were Elec, Normal, Bug and Poisen type. If it wasn't for Nidorina's double kick, she would have lost against him. Although even then, the rock gym leader prove to be best in defense.
He honor her and the battle skill's she shown through their fights. Even though, she was lack lustering in the stragety area. Which he understands, that she must not be the battleing type. Then question her why she took him on.
She kinda told a half lie and truth. She wanted to battle him, so she can see how strong she gotten. But the other half, was that she wanted to enter the Pokemon league. To prove that, she can be strong and battle with her Pokemon well. She doesn't want to feel useless along her journey with Robert.
Then came Misty. Sure her water types were specialize in Attacks. But Yellow, proved to the water type user. That it doesn't take strength to defeat an Oppenet. The Pokemon she used in this battle, was Beautifly, Chu and Magickarp.
Some how, with a stragety of Beautfly's poisen powder, along with Super sonic. Gave her an easy win against Goldeen, then when Staryu was sent out. Right before Beautfly fainted, she succesfully got Stun spore to paralyse the water Pokemon.
Which Chu, got an easy win the next match. By thunder shocking the platforms above the water. Making it dangerous, for Misty's pokemon to land on. Without getting zap by the electricfied platforms.
Though, when Starmie was sent out. Her pikachu did not stand a chance, as the previous stragety with the platforms. Failed to work in her favor, so she had trouble keeping the electric mouse Pokemon above water. Which Starmie just pounded on the Pokemon under water.
After losing against the Starmie, Yellow had trouble deciding on Clefairy or Magikarp. So, she went with Magickarp. Which the fish Pokemon had a glare in it's eyes. Showing how determine it was to win. Thus, surprising Yellow and Misty. When the Pokemon was too fast and too tough for the fully evolved Pokemon to win.
After getting out of her thoughts, when she heard Robert and Eevee jumping around. Saying how they manage to capture another Pokemon. Though, it confused her and Shadow of why every pokemon he caught. He sends it to the PC.
Then looked up from, her sitting spot and saw Shadow just standing next her. Before she talked to him, she fisted her hand in her pockets. To hide the Boulder and Cascade badge from his line of sight.
Then turning her attention up to him, with a smile. She then spoke up to him. "What's up Shadow? Something bothering you?", she asked, while tilting her head bit. While her long hair wave slightly to the right. Watching Shadow, bringing a hand under his chin. Moving his teeth slightly against his lip.
" I'm just curious of why, Robert isn't gonna use any of the Pokemon. That he caught?", he question. While scratching the back of his neck. Moving his head to get any kinks out.
This made Yellow blink a bit, then look towards Robert. She wonder the samething, consisdering that, he doesn't know what the next gym might have. "Well, a trainer doesn't really need all six Pokemon to battle", Yellow reply, while using her leg for sappourt. To stand up fully and wipe any dirt off of her knees.
Then she picked up, her straw hat that was resting against the tree. The wind blowing slightly, as the branches and leaves rustle gently of the wind. Once she put the hat on, she looked up to the sky. Seeing flocks of Pidgeys and Taillows flying a cross the skies.
Then she looked down, towards Robert and Eevee. Who both came back from their training session and capturing Pokemon. Panting a bit from running, hunch down, using his legs for sappurt. Then tilt his head up, grinning.
"Hey guys! Sorry for the wait.", he said happily. While sheepishly scratching his head. While his bangs blew gently from the wind. Then blinked in confusion, seeing Yellow and Shadow starring at him with a mix of, a smirk and a funny look. "What?", he asked, raising a brow. Then saw Yellow pointing down.
When he looked down. He saw a Maril was hugging his leg tightly, and then spoke out. "Marill!", it said. While it's eyes was glistening. Then Robert started hopping up and down, shaking his leg. To get the water type off his legs.
Which Yellow and Shadow, started boasting with laughter. Along with Eevee, who was rolling on the floor. While the poor boy, tries despertly to get Marill off his leg. Every time he shook his leg, Marill will constantly say it's name every time it goes up and down. Then finally let go, after the 5th shook.
Waddling away, with a happy tone in it's voice. Robert now on the ground, on all fours. Was panting even more heavily. Then looked up at his friends and Pokemon. He growled a bit and huff out air. "Tch, thanks for the help guys!", he growled out. While Yellow just, put her straw hat infront of her face. Trying hard to settle her laughter. While Shadow, was just waving his hand up and down.
"Come now Robert. There's nothing to be mad about", he said through each chuckle. While Eevee just stop it's laughter a bit. Then teared up, while going back on it's back laughing again. At the distraught his trainer went through.
Couple minute's has gone by, after couple more of teasing and laugh filled walking. Robert just kept his distance, from the two trainers. Muttering under his breath, saying how Pokemon get too attached to him. Then just cover his ears, more after Yellow re-told the samething happen in Pallet town. With Robert stepping on his mom's Raichu's tail. Shocking him. Then him rolling down the hill to Prof.Oak's lab. With a Marill holding his leg.
Finally, every one calm down. Walking down the dirt road, listening to nature run it's course, watching some Oddishes and Glooms, bopping up and down and just run in a circle. Chasing each other playfully. While the Gloom then let out it's stun spore, causing the Oddish's to fall down, getting taged by the Gloom. While they protest of how, it cheated. Causing the Pokemon to blush in embarrasment.
This earned, Yellow a huge smile. Enjoying the wild Pokemon playing around. Then heard Robert letting out a small chuckle, causing her to look forward. Seeing a Pikachu and Pichu, starring at them. Then they both ran up the tree, standing next to each other. Looking back to the trainers, as they jump up and down.
Then Pichu shocking the Pikachu next to it. Causing the Pikachu to fall forward a bit, and quickly recovering back. Leering at the Pichu, as it walked back a bit. Then turn and ran off with fear etch on it's face. While Pikachu gave chase, as the two Pokemon jump from branch to branch. As you can hear the sound of electricity courseing through the forest.
Then the three of them, looked in the sky. Too see Taillows and Pidgeys, flying and doing loops in the sky. At the same time, zig zagging through Hoppips and Jumpluff's, as they were being gently carry with the gust of the winds.
While the Pidgey's, were having fun of keeping them up in the air. By using small gust under them. Tickling the grass type Pokemon and bringing them back into the air. The three trainers just smiled and focus back on the road ahead.
"Hmm?", Robert suddenly, hum outloud. While looking ahead of them, he spotted a cabin not to far. Next to the path their walking on, and rose a pointed hand forward. Turning his head back. To look at his friends. "Hey? What's that up ahead?", he asked with a curious gaze.
Stopping in his tracks, as he was suddenly bump forward. From Eevee and Yellow forgetting to stop. Then glare at the two, who were chuckling nervously at him. Then Shadow took a couple steps forward. Leering a bit, to read the hanging sign. Then smiled.
"It's a day care. Come on!", he excitedly said, while running ahead of Yellow and Robert. Which the two just stood there, with a gust of wind just blowing. The two looked at each other, and just shrug. Giving chase to their older friend.
Once they reached to Shadow, he was already knocking on the door. Hearing Robert and Yellow finally walking up. With Eevee jumping up on Robert's shoulder, while the two were steadying their breathing. Which Robert, stood up straight. Stretching his arms high above his head and back down to his sides. Letting them swing a bit.
"Hey Shadow? What's up?", Robert question, while tilting his head a bit. Right before Shadow could answer Robert. The door was suddenly open. revealing two old couples standing behind the open door. With smile's on their faces.
"Oh look Pa! We got visitors!", the old lady said, with her face wrinkle up into a smile. Whle looking behind her. Watching a old man walking up to the door. With a long beard, reaching down to his neck. His blue eyes, happy to see visiting travelers.
"Ah, I'm guessing you three are Trainers?", he asked, while the three trainers, smiled while nodding. Which Shadow raise a hand up a bit.
"Yup, My name is Shadow.", he then moved his hand towards Robert. "This is Robert and his partner Eevee.", which the two nodded in the old couples direction. Then he moved his hand to Yellow, who bowed slightly down. "And this is Yellow", he finished. Turning his attention back to the couple.
The old lady, then smiled widely. Her brown eyes scanning through the three trainers. Then focus on Robert. Which made him smiled a bit more. "I say, your radiated brightly young one", she said, confusing Robert. Looking at the other two, then back to the old lady.
"Oh ho ho ho! Don't worry young one, it's just you expressing how excited you are. To those around you", she continue, while waving her hands backwards. Inviting the trainers in the house. Which they happily oblige.
"So, what you all traveling together for?", the Old man asked. Then suddenly face palm. "OH! Where are my manners. Let me introduce myself." he said, with a small chuckle. bringing his palm on his chest. "My name is Erik, and Ma here is", when he gesture towards her. Before even saying her name. She finished for him.
"Alice, it's great to see young trainers. traveling with Pokemon", she said with excitment, while pulling a chair out. From a wooden carve table. Sitting down, nudging her head to the empty chairs. Which they thank her and sat down. While Eevee jump on the table.
"Eevee! Sorry about that Ma'am", Robert began to say, ready to grab Eevee. Before he could though, the couple stop him. With happiness in their voice.
"Don't worry, we would like to see Eevee, if it's arlight with you of course", Alice asked, while fixing her grey hair into a bun. Watching Robert sit back, and nodded. Then Eevee, happily walk a cross the table. Sitting infront of her. She then started examining the brown Pokemon. by petting it and doing checks up on it.
"You see, Ma here used to be a Pokemon breeder. Back in her days, and was well known in Kanto. Of her abilities, to care and help people and their Pokemon's.", Erik started explaining, while every one started to hear Pokemon. Outside of the house, looking out the window seeing the diffrent kinds and types.
"Trainers, from a cross Kanto. Come's here for her aid. Wondering and checking up on their Pokemon health or wellfare.", he continue, while closing his eyes. Smiling at Yellow and Robert. Who was paying attention to the wild Pokemon, while Shadow was drinking some orange juice. focusing on Erik's tale.
"So, how did she decide on making a day care?", he asked curiously, while Eevee was grunting. From Alice stretching it's cheeks. Rubbing them, causing the small Pokemon to giggle a bit. Which Erik showed a carring smile to her.
"Heh, it was me who suggested it.", he said softly, while bringing all of their attentions. Minus Alice, who was being lick by the Pokemon. Causing her to chuckle. "Of course, Ma was against it, and said she wanted to travel around the world and help.", he then lean back in his chair. Looking out the window, remembering the memory well.
"Then I told her, it will be alright. I will build a day care. Where every trainer will be able to see it. I told her", he continue, while he reminence how he worked, day and night. Building and slowly completing the house. While Alice, just watches him behind the trees. With a curious gaze to him.
Then Eevee, squeak a bit. Causing Robert to snap his head over to it. "Don't worry, my bad. I accendently touch a sore spot on his ear tip", Alice said, with a apologetic look at the startle trainer. Who then looked at Eevee, whom had one eye looking up. With a slight brow, slowly swiping it's left ear gently. Then shook it's head, squeaking in happiness. Letting them know, it was okay.
Then Robert had a worry look on his face. Wondering if it was his fault for that. Sensing Robert's tension, she chuckle, while softly massaging Eevee's ears. Causing the pokemon to purr a bit. "Nah, don't worry deary. It's not your fault, matter of factly. This is showing good resaults. Of your training with Eevee. As you can see", she then told Eevee to tilt's his head a bit. Which it comply and did.
"Eevee's have a distinct way. Of showing their progress. If you look at the very tip", she explain while pointing at the top of the ear. Making Robert and Yellow leaning forward, blinking their eyes. "Can you see, the small spikey hair at the tip?", she asked, while grabbing a small cotton stick.
Pointing at the tip. Which Yellow and Robert nodded. Their eye's a little shock at this. Looking up at her, she smiled and continue her speech. "It means, that Eevee's training and experience. Is starting to show.", she finished, letting the trainers sit back down. With Robert smiling at the Pokemon.
"That's great Eevee, but remember!", he said leaning forward. With his pointer finger up. Smiling at the Pokemon. "Just because your working hard, doesn't mean the whole team isn't either.", he smiled, when the Pokemon squeak and had the determine look on it's face.
Then Yellow perk up with a question look. "Um? How did you figure out, that Eevee was a male??", she asked curiously. Tilting her head to the side, while Alice laugh slightly. Then softly grab Eevee once more. Then showed a small dark patch of fur above it's right eye.
"This is how deery, some times. Male Eevee's tend to play in soot. Or roll around in the grassy fields. Leaving a darker patch of fur on their face, indicating that their male. While female Eevee's. Tend to keep themselfs, away from muddy terrain or keeping their fur dry and clean.", she finished. Letting the infomation to sink in. Then Erik cleared his throat.
"Not to interrupt anything. Though", then saw all three of them nodded. While Shadow, smiled.
"Heh sorry, So what made you two stay together?", he asked. Which then Alice spoke, letting Eevee go. While the Brown Pokemon smiled and decided to roam around the table. Getting a good look of the room.
With clocks, hanging on the walls. Furnished funitures that were neatly, place around the chimney. A television on the far left side of the room. With two rocking chairs set in place. Along with a radio on a counter. Tall lamps, set on each side of the room. With floral patterns for the covering.
"I fell in love", which she earned an aww from Shadow and Yellow. While Robert, just smiled. Not one being into those type of things. But hey he's still young. "It, took Erik about almost a month to finished, and every day. I visit and gave him lunch dinner and breakfeast", she said, now moving her hands to a necklace around her neck.
"We spend alot of time together, while also helping him finish the house. With the gate's out back too.", she said, while bringing out a, sapphire looking necklace for every one. With the three of them leaning forward. Looking at the jewel necklace. With Yellow speaking up for everyone.
"It's beautiful! Where did you get it!?", she asked, looking at the luster the necklace was shinning, in the sun light. Which Erik smirk, while rubbing underneith his nose. With a grin.
"I had that way before I met her. You see, I watched and saw how determine she was. With her work and dream. Then one day", he said, looking up at the ceiling a bit. "I saw her, outside the finished housed. Looking very down and sad.", he started, while the memory was implanted in his mind. While everyone was watching intently, waiting for him to continue.
"After asking her what was wrong, she told me. That a complete stranger came up to her. Telling her, that her dream will never come true.", he finished, while a sneer appear on his face. Which the three trainers, also had a glare in their looks. "It took me, almost everything to get her. To go with her dreams. Till one day, a special trainer came up to us.", he smiled, looking at Robert. Who was confused a bit.
"It was your mom when she was young. She brought over a injured, Eevee.", which Yellow and Shadow smiled at him and Robert. While Robert looked down, with a respectful look on his face. His mom did, told him about a day care center. During one of her stories, though never expected her to have a Eevee.
"Your mom, visted every day. Every week, she would come over. To see if Eevee was okay, and help ma out with the day care", he let the info mation to gather in the trainers. While leaning back once more, his eyes softing to Alice. Then smiled. "And that's when I propose, with that Necklace. It was a joyas day for us. If your mom hadn't come, Ma would've giving up her dream", he said, holding onto Alice hand, rubbing her knuckles affectionately.
The trainers feeling the love between the two. Making them smiled even bigger, sensing the love between the two. Then Eevee, looked out a window and eyes went wide. At the Pokemon it saw.

Dang text limit XD Had to split this chapter into 2.
It was a Glaceon, with icey blue fur, with a dark blue tone for it's paws and the edge of it's ears. It's fron fur also being dark bluw, swaying against the wind. Which it was drinking out of the river, as the hanging hair was softly floating on the rivier. After taking enough to drink of the river, it shook it's head, while droplet's of water splash infront of it's eyes. The blue orbs, slowly opening as they shine in the droplet's. It's fur sparkling through the sun light.
Eevee, just tilted it's head, hearts flying off of it. Sighing, watching the pokemon curl up next to the lake. Eevee's ears then notch to the side, while slowly laying down. Causing Robert to look at his Pokemon. Wondering what was wrong with it.
Then look out to the window. Wondering what caught Eevee attention, and smiled. "Cool! It's a Glaceon!", Robert shouted, while taking his Pokedex out, and pointed towards the Ice Pokemon.
"Glaceon the Ice type Pokemon, the evolve form of Eevee. It causes small ice crystals to form, by lowering the temperture of the surrounding area. By controlling it's body heat, it can freeze the atmosphere around it. To make a diamond-dust flurrie.", informed the Pokedex.
Eevee, then just lay down. With a worry look on it's face, while Shadow looked at the brown Pokemon. "Aw, whats wrong Eevee?", he asked, standing infront of it now. While Eevee just put it's paw under it's chin. Looking away.
Then Robert walked up to Eevee, petting his head gently. "Whats wrong Eevee? Your not useually like.", then gotten interrupted by Alice, who laughed slightly. Which Cause Robert to looked up at her.
"Seems like Eevee, got inflaturated by seeing Glaceon", she said, walking up to Robert and knelt down infront of Eevee. "Is that right Eevee?", which the brown Pokemon wag it's tail. Squeaking a bit, then looked at Robert. With pleading eyes, while he rub the back of his head. Shuffling his fur a bit.
"Heh, Go on! Don't need my permission", Robert reply, but saw Eevee, just giving a nervous look. Slightly tapping it's paw a bit. Which made Robert tilt his head a bit. Confuse by this action, then Shadow stood up straight. Knowing what Eevee was thinking.
"I think, he want's to know how to talk to girls! Yellow, come here please, so we can demostrate", he said happily. While Yellow chuckle.
Getting off her chair, she walked up to Shadow, while he knelt down infront of her. Grabbing her hand. "Eevee, A girl likes to be complimented and like's it when you introduce you first, then ask about her. Then you say something romantic.", he piqe, while Eevee just tilt's its head. Wondering what Shadow was talking about.
"Like this Eevee, you take Glaceon paw/hand in Yellow's case and speak words.", he continue, while clearing his throat. Just kneeling there. Everyone was just waiting, as he started talking. "Yellow, You..And..Um..", and was failing badly, which every one was sweat dropping at this scene.
"..It's kinda easier, if Yellow was the same age as me", he chuckled nervously, while standing up. Which Robert rolled his eyes up. Then took Shadow place. In the same position he was, holding Yellow's hand gently.
"Eevee, this is how your sappouse to do it!", he said confindently, while looking up at Yellow.
"Yellow, your eyes shine brightly with the morning sun, as it rays down to the earth. Your blonde hair, flows through the wind that of yellow dandylions. Gently brushing against the breeze. Your hand smooth of the fresh silk that was sewn together of a blanket. Your smile, defrosts, those with harden hearts.", he finished, while standing up, letting go of Yellow's hand. Turning his attention at Eevee,
"See, Eevee. OH also, make sure you act yourself to Glaceon. Let her know the real you", Robert said, with a thumbs up to Eevee, winking at the brown Pokemon. Whom sqweak happily and jump out the window. Heading towards the direction, where the Glaceon is.
Then Shadow and the two old couple's looked at Robert. As the boy was, rubbing the tip of his nose. Blushing at the looks he was getting. "Heh, I kinda got that from a movie, that my mom watches and well. Forces me to watch", he chuckle nervously, while heading out the door. "If any one needs me! I'll be training with my Pokemon", he last said, while opening and closing the door. Heading out to the near by forest.
Then Shadow, rub the back of his head. Looking down at the floor. "Even it was from a movie, that was very good demostration. Right Yellow?", he said looking up at her, then blink. "Yellow??", he asked once more. Seeing the girl has froze in the same spot. With her hand still where Robert held it. A huge blush on her face, that cover down to her neck.
Then Shadow walked up to her, waving his hand up and down infront of her. Snapping his finger. Nothing was working, and softly tap her shoulder. "Yellow?", he asked at the same time, softly pushing her shoulder, seeing the girl falling backwards and slamming to the ground.
He then laughed softly, while scratching his head. Looking at the two couples. "Heh, how powerful words can be", he jokingly said, which the other two join in his laughter.
After, the shock from the performance Robert gave. Yellow finally recovered, from falling to the floor. Every one was now walking around in the house. Cleaning things and getting feeds for the Pokemon that was roaming, entering and exiting the house.
With Pichu's, Togepi's and couple of other type of Pokemon were happily eating their food. Yellow was crouch down infront of the eating Pokemon. Smiling at the baby Pokemon, which Pichu stop half way with it's food. Mouth wide open, starring at Yellow whom was blinking at the Pokemon.
Then lower it's arm with the food. Tilting it's head, then looked down at the food. With a smile, hold it infront of Yellow. "Chu? Pichu!", it said happily. Which Yellow probably knew what it was trying to do. "Oh no thank you Pichu! I'm full", Yellow replyed, while rubbing her tummy. To get her point out.
Which the Pichu, closed it's eyes and shrug. shoving the pokefood in it's mouth. holding the sides of it's cheek, smiling big. Which Yellow couldn't help, but grab her sketch pad. From her bag, and started drawing the Pokemon that were eating.
Then Shadow, walked up to the kitchen sink, washing the dishes thoroughly. While looking over at Alice. "I'm curious Alice?", he asked, raising a brow. Hearing Yellow humming while drawing the baby Pokemon.
"Yes dear?", she asked. While looking over at him.
"How did you know, it was Robert's mom. That came here long time ago?", he was curious. Which he then, stretch out his hand. Putting the plate he was washing, onto the dish rack. With the other plates and bowls. Hearing Alice chuckle, putting a dish on the rack also.
"Because, his mom gave off. The same excitement and care to her Pokemon. It wasn't that hard, to tell he was her son. That and since he came in with a Eevee. It kinda reminded me the same event", she then looked up in thought, while bringing a finger under her chin. The two of them, heard the baby Pokemon jumping on top of Yellow. Causing her to squeak in surprise.
Dog piling on her, causing the girl. To attemp to crawl out from them, stretching upward. Trying hard to break free, but just falls back on the floor. Laughing her head off, as the Pichu on top. Was waving it's arms up and down. Ordering the other Pokemon to tickle the poor girl.
Shadow, noticing how quiet Alice went all of the sudden. Leaning forward a bit. "Something wrong?", he asked slowly, which she look to him. Then looked down with a sad look. "There's these two People, that showed up 5 days ago.", she said stopping a bit. Grabbing a cloth to dry her hands.
"Oh? What did they want?", he asked curiously. Watching her walk back to the table while, sitting down. Seeing the sad still on her face. He then looked at Yellow, who was on the floor, with all the Pokemon. Looking at Alice too, with sadness on their faces.
"They wanted to shut down my day care. On the account, we haven't been paying our due fee's.", she said sadly, while letting out a heavy sigh. Which concern Shadow and Yellow. Watching the old lady, sewing something on the table. Then they looked at each other, nodding at each other. Knowing what they are thinking.
"How about we help out?", Yellow asked, while getting up from the dog pile. That she could've easily, escape out of. Since the baby Pokemon don't weigh much. Causing them to roll off into fistful of laughter, on the floor.
"Yeah. I'm sure, if we show them how determen you are. About keeping this place up. I'm sure they will let you keep the place.", Shadow exclaim, while accendently hitting himself, with the cloth. By swinging it around. Splatting onto his face. Causing couple of chuckles from Yellow and Alice.
Which then Alice, sat up from her seat. With her hands the table, with the widest grin. "Sure thing! Let's show those two, how determine we are to keep this place up", she excitedly said, as everyone gave out a low cheer. While getting started to clean up the place.
Then Yellow, turned around at the Pokemon, smiling at them. "Here, make sure you protect this hat you guys!", she said, taking the straw hat off her head, while bending down to give it. To Pichu, who seemed to be the leader of the group. Which the mouse Pokemon saluted, and ran off with the others.
Then she looked over at Alice, while wondering one thing. "When are they arriving?". Which Alice stop to think, while Erik walk in the door. That was leading to the fields, that the Pokemon were roaming freely. Looking up from dusting, some of the dirt from his pants. He saw everyone starring at Alice, who was slowly walking to the sink. With that same thinking pose.
Then she turned around and spoke up. "They are coming back today"
Mean while with Eevee.
The brown pokemon, was following along the side of the water stream. That was clear as day, with water Pokemon swimming along the current, and jumping out of it. with Marill's and Azurill's, with the little Azurill standing, on the ball tail. Smiling and bouncing a bit on top of the rock. Which the ball tail slip from underneith it. Sending the Pokemon flying into the river.
Which Marill was flapping it's arms up and down. Saying it's name, while scolding the Azuril, that climb back ont he rock. With a sad look on it's face. Then suddenly happy again, when the Marill showed how to properly, bounce off it's tail. At the same time splashing the water Pokemon.
Eevee just kept smiling, as it was happily walking down the stream. With his black orbs looking around the field. Seeing some Pidgeys nestling, on tree branches. While couple of Spearows, were sqwarking at the brown Pokemon. Which made the Pokemon, let out a nervouse grin. Then ran far away from them as possible.
Keeping the tree insight, then when he looked forward. He ran into something squishy, which sent him back a bit. sliding his feet on the ground. Shaking it's head, while the ears slap a bit. Look up at what he ran into. Which was a Snorlax, happily snoozing away.
Eevee then just chuckle at the sleeping Pokemon. While walking around it, making sure not to wake the large Pokemon. But also, trying not to get squish by it also. When it was clear to walk again. Eevee dashed off again, following the stream some more.
The wind gently blowing through the area, making Eevee's fur to move along with it. Which the brown Pokemon just close his eyes. Letting the gentle caress of it, to blow through his fur. Then he once again, bump into another Pokemon. Though causing Eevee, to quickly hop back. Shivering badly, as it felt very cold. Once he open his eyes. He couldn't believe who he ran into!
"G..Glaceon!?", Eevee suddenly said in shock. Seeing the Glaceon tilting her head at him, with the hanging hair softly moving to the side. Eyeing the shivering Eevee. While closing her eyes, giggling at the young Pokemon. Whom quickly shook out his thoughts. Trying to calm his nerves, at the same time. Letting out a breath of air. Seeing his breath was a surprise. Remembering what his trainers, device said. About Glaceon can control the water vapor, in the air surrounding it.
Then he bravely took a step forward, with a shaky voice. "Gl..Glaceon. I.Um. My name is", before he could finished, Glaceon walked up to him couple inches away. While smiling at the Eevee.
"I know who you are, it's not hard to tell. That your an Eevee", she laughed after finishing her sentence, as Eevee. Just chuckle at that revelation. Then close his eyes and let out another breath of air. Raising one eye open.
"Well..um, How are you doing?", Eevee asked, while cursing in his head. Now he see's why, those nights out of the pokeball. Robert always let Eevee know. That he is always shy around people, and that he hope. He wouldn't get shy around Pokemon. Just like he is with people.
Then heard, the Glaceon giggle. While having a paw near it's muzzle. Then started walking around Eevee, brushing her tail against him. Causing Eevee to shiver from her the cold air she was generating. "Your a very cute Pokemon, and honest too", she finished, by nuzzleing her head against his. Causing Eevee to blush from the comment. "I can also sense, your trainer taught you well", she said, while licking the side of his left cheek. Causing Eevee to sigh, while tilting to the right.
Then stood right up quickly, while turning to look at Glaceon. "Then, you won't mind if I asked you to-", then suddenly gets blasted, by a dark pulse. Sending Eevee flying through the air, which caused Glaceon to get pushed back. From the move making contact to the brown Pokemon. She then looked up to see, if Eevee was alright. Seeing the brown Pokemon slowly standing up. Shaking out any dizzyness.
Then glared up, to see a Umbreon. Standing next to Glaceon, low to the ground. Growling and snarling at the brown Pokemon. "Who gave you the gual, to talk too Glaceon!", it said between each growl. Making Glaceon to let out a sigh and walked away. Disappointed in the black Pokemon. This made Eevee's eyes to soften a bit, before taking a step forward. Umbreon then struck Eevee in the head, with quick attack. Sending the brown pokemon into the river.
Causing Eevee to thrash about in the water, as it couldn't swim. Being carried by the current. The Umbreon who was standing near the river bank. Just tsk and walked away, finding and telling Glaceon to follow it. Which she did, as she wasn't a battle Pokemon. Her trainer kept her here, so she will get supplys for the contests that are at Hoenn. Looking at the river bank, worrying about Eevee.
Whom was still thrashing in the water, went under the water. But flew out suddenly, and landed onto the grass. Coughing roughly, with water spitting out from it's mouth. It looked over who saved him. Then saw that it was a Feebas and Azuril, with smiles on their faces. Glad that the brown Pokemon was okay.
Then their faces soften slightly, seeing Eevee just laying there. With a sad look. Breathing a bit, still out of breath from thrashing about in the river. Just lets out a depressing sigh. "All I ever wanted to do, was talk and get to know Glaceon", he said, trying to fight back the tears. Remembering Glaceon, walking with Umbreon. With out even protesting.
The Feebass and Azuril, looked at each other. Then back at Eevee, as they dive back in the water. Sensing that, Eevee probably wanted to be alone. Which Eevee, just curled up on the ground. Letting the sun dry up his fur. Softly closing his eyes, falling asleep. To recover some of the damage, it taken by Umbreon's attacks.
Mean while, outside of the Day care.
"Is the machine ready?", a woman asked, with a uniform. That represents a moving re-inteller. Watching the man, strapping on the device. Lifting it around his arm, and shoulder. Hanging on his back. Then gave a thumbs up to her.
"Sure is.", he said, while lifting it up a bit more. Then stood up straight. While wiping off some sweat from his brow. "So the plan is, that you will be distracting them at the front door. While I sneak into the fields, getting all of the Pokemon that is roaming around", he asked, while getting his uniform ready and prepare. Which the woman nodded and grin. Seeing the day care not so far.
"Yup, now let's get busy!", she exclaim, which they seperated. The man going around the back, while the woman went to the front door of the building. Sighing slightly, trying to get the excitment out of her. Then raised one hand up, and started knocking on the door.
Hearing, voices on the inside. Murmuring and whispering. At the sametime, hearing footsteps on the other side. A sinister grin etch on her face, she chuckle lightly. Then quickly adjusted her hat, to lower it a bit more. To hide her face, before the door open. Then saw the couples standing before her. Bringing up her clipboard, she spoke with a booming voice.
"Ah yes! Alice and Erik?", she asked, while the two nodded their heads. While stepping to the side, to let her through the door. Then closed it once she was in, watching her wander around the room. "I'm from the Pokemon Solceity moving comitte. I'm here to investigate, to make sure the place. Is right for Pokemon to live in.", she spoke aloud, while not paying attention to the two.
Seeing the small pokemon wandering around the house. Once the Pichu ran by, she thought she was seeing things. It a was wearing a very familler looking straw hat. But just shrugs it off. Then went to the kitchen, examining couple of cupbards, writing off things. That weren't even dangerous for the pokemon. "Heh, all I gotta do. Is to keep this act going, untill bob get's all the Pokemon", she silently said.
Then suddenly, you hear screaming of "Name's BUTCH!", from out of no where. Which cause everyone to look around and shrug it off. While checking things off, she heard extra pair of foot prints. Coming in the room, and thought that pretty weird. Consisdering, the two couple's were sappouse to be the only one's living her.
She slightly, turn her head to the couples, and eyes widen in shock. There stood before them. Chatting away, was the same brats she ran into. From outside of Mt.Moon, when they foiled their toll booth. While samething at the Ceruleon gym! Quickly looking at her clipboard, she started shaking. "Crap, Crap, Crap! If they recgonise me, the operation will be ruin.", she thought to herself, while sweating bullets. "It's alright Cassidy, just don't let them see your face", she finished, by tilting her hat lower. So it would cover more of her face. Then turned around, seeing that her eyes were right.
There standing with the couples, was Shadow and Yellow. They were asking them, where they should put the extra bags of Pokemon food. But their attention was now at Cassidy, who was slowly approaching. "May I see those?", she gesture to the bag, that Yellow was holding. Whom happily smile and nodded to her. Which she then handed the bag to Cassidy, who almost fell to the floor. "GEEZE! How much does this way, more importantly!", looks at Yellow with a sweat drop. Still seeing the smile on her face. "How the heck, was she able to carry this!?", she grumble to herself.
"Billy, you better hurry up!", she thought to herself. While weighing the bag and writting it off as bad. Causing Yellow to glare a bit, while Shadow held her back. Hoping the girl wouldn't explode on them. "I don't know how long, I can keep this act up!", with that she toss teh bag. Bag to Yellow, whom fell backwards and landed on the ground. With everyone blinking at Cassidy. Who shrugs her shoulder. "oops?", she cracked a smile, when Shadow was helping Yellow up.
Back with Eevee.
Eevee, who was sleeping off all the injuries he took. Was softly snooring and kicking his legs, as if he was chasing something. Then started shivering, on the account his dream. Change into a nightmare of Umbreon, hurting Eevee without any remorse at all. Seeing the sad eyes in Glaceon, as she just watch Eevee take the full blunt of attacks. Then everything turned dark for Eevee, who shot up quickly from it's sleeping state. Sweating and huffing fast, looking around to figure out where it is. Then looked up, to see a Haunter, laughing at the poor Pokemon, but then explained. That he was hurting himself, in his sleep.
Eevee sqeak it's thanks to the Ghost Pokemon, which the ghost disappear for a bit. Then re-appear quickly, making a funny face to Eevee. Scareing the Brown pokemon, but at the same time. Causing Eevee to go into a laughing fit. When he saw what Haunter was trying to do. It was cheering the brown Pokemon up. Then Haunter waved good bye to the Eevee and flew off, to some place unknown.
Once the Haunter was gone, Eevee's ears started twitching. Looking around, he could hear cries of other Pokemon in distress and loud booms from Pokemon attacks in the distance. With a leer in his eyes. Hop forward a bit, and dashed off at incredible speed, using agility to see what was going on.
Hearing the cries getting louder and louder. Eevee quickly came to a stop, by pushing it's paws forward. Slamming on the brakes, as best as possible. Then his body mover forward and then back to place. Eyes widening at the situation infront of him.
That rocket guy, was taking and caputring all of the Pokemon. By using what seems to be an, electric net. Causing all of the Pokemon to cry out in pain. Cept for Snolax, who just scratch it off and rolled over. Then Eevee heard Glaceon's cry, seeing her back up in the corner. Along with Umbreon, who seen the last of it's battling days. Panting heavily and growling at the man, whom was slowly approaching them. Step by step, inch by inch. With the net was crackling and surging with electricity.
"You know, you won't be able to protect that Pokemon forever!", he exclaim, while fireing the net at the two. Evelutions, but before it could land on it's target. A powerful Shadow ball, exploded when it made contact to the net. Causing Butch to step back a bit, whipping his head to the direction it came from. "Uh oh", he quietly said. Recgonising the Eevee, who was now low to the ground. Growling at the sweating rocket grunt. But grins at the brown Pokemon.
"So, you think your gonna be some He-", Then started hearing more growls around him, as he sweat drop. Turning his head around, seeing Umbreon, Glaceon and many other Pokemon that were in nets. All glareing at him and growling at him. Gulping to himself, he slowly back away, but quickly jump back. Hearing more growls around him. He was surrounrded by many Pokemon in the fields. He was whipping his head all over the place.
Then lower his arms. Letting out a huff of air. Raising a sign up from no where, saying. "good grief", which all of the Pokemon all attacked at once, causing a huge explosion. Sending Butch flying into the skies, flying out of view. Which all the Pokemon were cheering and jumping, as they were saved.
What happen was, Eevee who was running to the scene. Released every Pokemon from their confinement, by cutting the ropes and net's with his swift attacks. While also breaking off tree branches from trees, so they would fall to the ground and cause the net's to fly up a bit. Allowing Eevee, to not harm the Pokemon with it's swift attacks.
Glaceon who was pushing her way through the Pokemon. Ran right up to Eevee and tackle him to the ground, licking Eevee's cheeks and nudging against him. Making the brown Pokemon sigh heavenly, and blushing madly. Since all the Pokemon were smiling at him. Even the roughian Umbreon was, sitting there with a smile on it's face. Wagging it's bushy black tail back and forth, snickering at the distraught of Eevee. Being showered down with licks and nuzzling against him. Then his ears, suddely shot straight up. Realisation hitting him!
If Brad was here, then that means the girl Cassidy. Is here as well..DISTRACTING the trainers!! Which he concluded, while softly, rolling the Glaceon off of him, explaining to the other Pokemon. That he needs, to head back to the house. The baby Pokemon are in danger by another member.
Which the Pokemon were all chattering to each other, while Umbreon disappear, and ran up to the sleeping Snorlax, who finally decided to wake up. Flattening the grass around it, and stretching it's arm out. Best it could, while lightly snapping a small twigt, from a tree branch. Causing the tree to bend forward, then shook back and forth making a boin affect, shaking the leaves off of the tree. While some of the flying Pokemon, flew out of their nests.
Using the decent size of the pick. Snorlax was carefully, picking at it's teeth. A habbit it pikced up from it's trainer, then it heard some barks coming from next to it. Leaning it's head to the left, and looking down. Saw it's best friend Umbreon, telling him about a Eevee who wants to get back to the barn. So it can warn it's trainer. Looking up away from Snorlax, saw this said Eevee, who was blushing. By being carried by Glaceon, having her teeth at the back of his neck.
Smiling brightly, helping her rescuer any way as possible. Enjoying the stuttering Eevee was sqeaking out, saying how. He can walk the rest of the way, and that he will be okay. But Glaceon just shook her head slightly, causing her hanging hair to tickle the brown Pokemon.
Once she reached to Snorlax and Umbreaon, she softly put Eevee on the ground, grooming him gently. Then nuzzle his cheek. After that, she took couple steps back, seeing the Snorlax, giving her a peace sign. Which Glaceon responded by nodding, confusing the brown Pokemon. Whom tilt his head slightly, lowering an brow. Suddenly feeling Snorlax clawed hands, picking him up. While Snorlax telling Eevee, that good luck and hope he can save the baby Pokemon.
Pullling back it's arms, while Eevee panickly started shouting at the big Pokemon. Slingshot forward, with a powerful thrust. Threw the screaming Eevee, who was flying through the skies, and was heading towards the house at an alarming rate.
Back with the others.
Alice and Erik, were sitting at the table. With his arm around her shoulder, trying to calm down the crying of his love, after hearing that the place. Will be demolish and have to give the Pokemon back to their rightful trainers. Yellow and Shadow, were leaning against the wall. Looking down to the floor. Feeling bad that they failed, to keep the place running.
Just watching th woman ready to leave, saying that she will take care of the baby Pokemon. Though after walking outside, she was head butted on the head, causing her to fly back a few feet in the air. Releasing the baby Pokemon from the brown sack she was carrying. Everyone was a bit worried, of what happen. Hearing crashes of dishes coming from the kitchen.
The couple along with Yellow and Shadow, all turn to see that it was Eevee. Who was wobbling and tottering on the conuter. Laughing and squeaking out the words, "Let's go again! Let's go again!"
"Eevee? Where did you come from?", Yellow asked, while walking up to the Pokemon. Picking him up to face level, while resting his head. On her forehead. Getting images of recent event's. Seeing everything that happen, even seeing Butch's face. Causing her to whip her head back a bit, seeing Eevee and hearing him. Started growling at the woman, who was groaning in pain. Lifting herself up from the floor, causing her hat to fall off.
Making Shadow and Yellow, scream out together. "Team Rocket!", they both shouted. Causing Cassidy to stand up quickly, stuffing all the baby Pokemon in the sack. Then threw down a smoke pellet. Creating a black smoke, to cover the entire room. Making every one to run outside, just barely catching Cassidy. Seeing her about to hop on, which Yellow grab a pokeball, from her bag. Throwing it forward.
"Go! Gyarados!", she yelled out, as the ball burst open. Shooting out a beam of light, as it stretches far and tall. With blue scales covering, it's serpent like body, with it's jaws wide open. Eye's glareing. The released Pokemon then let out a terrifying roar. "Alright Gyarados, use hyper beam!", Yellow commanded, while pointing towards the balloon.
Which the Gyarados, band backwards. Then shot forward, with a yellow orb building up infront of it's maw. Once it was fully charge, a giant yellow beam came flying out of it's mouth. Causing everything to be blowing, from the powerful force. While Yellow brought an arm infront of her eyes. Her pony tail whipping harshly.
Cassidy who was about to climb on her balloon. Heard the powerful attack coming towards her. Whipping her body around, she dove forward, and flew a bit. Once the attack explouded behind her. Causing the baby Pokemon to once again, to be free from the sack. Which Shadow, sent out his Houndoom. At the same time, ordering the dog Pokemon. To save the baby Pokemon.
Which Houndoom was succeful in doing so, as they all landed softly. On the demon dog's back, along with Pichu, who was gently floating down. Hanging onto Yellow's hat, with it's tiny paws. Landed right infront of, Alice and Erik. Cheering for landing.
Cassidy, who was now fuming. Went to sent out her Pokemon. But before she could, Eevee came flying with a quick attack. Ramming into Cassidy in the stomach, causing the woman to fall backwards on the floor. After the initial attack, Eevee stood next to Gyarados, whom looked down at the fur creature. Both nodding together.
"Together now! Hydro pump, and Shadow Ball!", Shouted Yellow, which the two Pokemon. followed her command, as they charge both their attacks. First Gyarados sending the hydro pump, with a powerful force. Causing the wind to pick up again, causing the grass to have a black outline. By being blown and weave rapidly.
Then black electricity gather around infront of Eevee's mouth, once more. Jumping up into the air. Whipping his head forward, sending the purple like orb,
"You too Houndoom! shadow ball!", Shadow shouted, as the dog Pokemon. Fire it's shadow ball forward. Causing it to fuse with Eevee's attack.
Gliding above the grround. Making dust cloud to split into 2, as it travel underneith the Hydro pump. Which then the two attack's fused together, creating a even devastating move. Water swirling and surrounding the purple orb. Shooting off like a bullet.
The attack, then landed infront of Cassidy, causing a huge explosion to emit. Bending the trees and blowing of the leaves off the tress. Sending Cassidy high into the air, along with Butch. Who was just sipping tea, waiting for Cassidy. Knowing she will eventually get blasted off.
When she flew next to him. He gently put the tea on the floating plate. "Got blasted by the Trainers?", he asked, with his eyes half open. Which Cassidy just tsk. Not bothering to say the samething over. "Oh well. We're blasting off again", Butch said with a bored tone. Then disappear with a star twinkle, where they were blasted off.
Couple hourse later, with the sun setting. The two trainers, were now standing infront of the couples, while the Glaceon Eevee met earlier. Was still grooming and nuzzling his cheeks. Keeping the poor Pokemon in place, while Eevee doesn't mind it. But he keep's reminding Glaceon, that his trainer will be coming back for him. Though she didn't care, and just stood by Eevee, untill his trainer does come back.
This made Yellow and Shadow smiled at the brown Pokemon. Seeing the blushing Eevee, trying to break free from Glaceon's grip. Which she just pin him down to the floor, causing him to squeak.
"Oh my, never have I seen Glaceon so affectionate. To a Pokemon before", Alice said, throguh chuckles, picking Glaceon up. Causing the ice Pokemon to pout, from being taken away it's rescuer. Eevee, then darted behind Yellow's leg. Panting badly, while blushing at the smilling Glaceon. Winking at Eevee, causing his ears to shoot straight. Then hid more behind Yellow's legs.
Causing everyone to laugh at the Pokemon. Then Erik step up, shaking hands with Yellow and Shadow. "Thank you, thank you for everything. How can we repay you?", he asked. While Glaceon was trying to break free of Alice's hold. Which Yellow grab Eevee and held him up. under her chin smilling.
"Oh no need! It was fun helping out with the Pokemon", Shadow said, while petting and stroking Glaceon fur. Causing her to purr and rubbing against his hand. Then Yellow step up, bowing down. Before she could rise her head. Pichu jump up, and place her straw hat back on. Giving her a victory pose with it's small claw in a peace sign.
Raising back up, adjusting her hat. Laughed at Pichu, thanking the mouse Pokemon.
After saying their good byes, and meeting back up with Robert. Who return after hearing a explosion. Which he wanted to know what happen, but for odd reason. Yellow just stuck her head up with a smile, whle walking past him. Saying, "Untill you tell me what happen, at Mt.Moon. Then you will never know what happen here",
Which made Robert tilt his head, scratching the side of his cheek. Looking over at Shadow, who was having trouble keeping his laughter. Just walk past Robert, at the same time. Patting his shoulders, making Robert move his head along with Shadow. Leering a bit, then looked down at Eevee. Whom looked like at snow on his fur. Both arms raise wide.
"What is it!? Tease Robert day?!", he asked his Eevee, while shaking his head. Letting out a huff of air. Following behind the two trainers ahead of him. While Eevee, looked back towards the day care, with a loving smile and sigh.
Then showed Glaceon. Curling around a egg, with a content smile and sigh. Keeping it close to her fur as much as possible.
The trio's next destination. Is Vermillion city. What awaits them?
Phew, sorry for the long wait everyone. Went through this chapter, on Microsoft words. To fix any errors that appear. Which luckily, was only word placements and spelling errors. Any way, hope you all enjoy and review XD
Chapter 14: After Shock, Electric type gone wild.
It was a warm and sunny day in Vermillion city, the Wingull’s flying overhead, of the ocean breeze. Calmly blew throughout the city. Blanketing the fresh sea salt air, to the home owners and travelers all round. Who come and go through the city, Pelipper’s nesting on the docking poles. That holds the board walks that leads to the boat docking bays.
People all ages and all sizes, were all enjoying their beautiful day. Playing and swimming down in the beach. Basking in the summer rays of the sun, they play and build sand castles. The tides at a perfect height, as it slowly lay a cross the shore. Turning the sand into a darker brown color and leaving sea shells onto the beach.
Beach balls, beach nets and fishing poles. People all over were having the time of their lives. Playing vollyball, building sand castle. Some of them, playing with their Pokemon. Some were even battling with their Pokemon, with spectators watching them. Vermillion city is a very active place, for summer vacationers to come.
Inside the Pokemon center.
"The gym is...Close?" asked Robert, who was scratching the top of his head. Looking at Yellow, who was acting a bit strange? Ever since they came to Vermillion city, she would ask Robert and Shadow, if they have everything they need. Like Antidote's, Potion's or Pokeball's. Okay, Robert thought to himself. They needed Pokeball's to capture Pokemon.
But everything else, they already have plenty of things. Then if it wasn't that much of a problem, then she will ask, if all their Pokemon are rested and fully healed. Which Shadow pique to Robert, saying they do need to go and heal up, since they did lot of training. along the way, especially with all the increase of trainer’s suddenly.
Since they have done all that, now Yellow told them, that the gym was close. In a bowing position, she tilt her head up with a sad look. "Yeah...I'm sorry about that Robert.", she reply, while bending her head down again. Her hands folded together against her legs.
Robert then looked over to Shadow, seeing him with a confuse expression also. Probably thinking the same thing as his self, and that would be. "Why would the gym be closed?" Robert thought to himself. Then look up. In a thinking position, while Yellow, slowly open one eye, looking at Robert. Hoping he will buy her story about the gym being close.
If he does, she won't have any trouble of facing the Gym leader. Without Robert, following her or getting suspicious of her actions. Though, she admittedly hate lying to him, even her Pikachu Chu, was starting to not like the idea. The guilt was taking over the both of them, of they know why they had to lie. They want to enter the Pokemon league and see how strong they've become. So this way, Yellow won't be a burden to any.
Then saw the boy, nodding his head, after coming to a conclusion. "Of course! With all the people and trainer, it would make sense for the gym to be close today.” he thought, while smirking to himself. Then rest a hand on Yellow's shoulder smiling. "It's alright Yellow. Thanks for telling me", he reply with a smile, as the girl lean back up. Her pony tail hair, tilt a bit to her shoulder. Her eye’s wide in shock.
"Your...you alright with this?" she asked curiously, resting her hand up on her torso. Her black long sleeves scrounge up a bit. From her fisting it, while Shadow, just slightly leers at Yellow. Seeing how quickly her mood change, figure she was up to something.
"Knowing my hunch, that’s probably. Wanting too, fight the gym leader, before Robert. Aren't you a clever girl." he thought to himself. He brought his left hand, stroking his chin, rubbing it. figuring out Yellow's plan. Which was to, lie too Robert. informing him that the gym was close. Which would, also make him, take the day off. From, battling or training for the rest of the day...
Then nodded at the reason behind it, Yellow will probably want Robert, to spend his day without battling. Or, challenging the gym leader. " Come to think of it? When did he ever take a break?" Which, he looked at Robert. Seeing slight change of his breathing, which probably meant, that he never once stop to take a break, or enjoy himself.
Well then time to let him, self be known. Walking up to the two smiling teens, he spoke up, "I heartily agree with Yellow.", he announce, surprising Robert a bit. Causing him to, whip his head at him. "Yeah, he definitely needs this break. He's so tense up and needs to rest", he said to himself, while rubbing Robert's head. "Listen to Yellow Robert. What she is really trying to say is..." he stopped in mid, sentence, causing Yellow to shake a bit.
"Oh no did he figure it out?!" she thought to herself, seeing Shadow slightly, lower one eye at her. With, sigh of disappointment. Which confused her a bit, when she tilt her head in response. Then he quickly smiled at her, making her even more confuse by his reactions.
"Is that you really ought to take a break. I mean look at you", he suddenly said. Walking back couple, feet, with his hands moving up and down. "You are shaking and your breathing is a little erotic.", then rest his palm against Robert's back. Lead him to the door. of the Pokemon center. Which, they open up with a ding noise, showing the city they arrived at.
Then points up to the clear skies, as the sun rays were shining brightly from above. Robert quickly raising his left arm, over his forehead, so the bright sun wouldn't blind him.
"It's a beautiful summer day! Go on, get out and have some fun! Be a kid for just today", Shadow exclaim, while rubbing Robert's head, walking in front of him. Look down at him. "Being a kid is great. So try to not be too serious okay?", then rested a hand on his shoulder, while a concern look was etched on his face. "Don't make mistakes, like normal trainers do ok? Learn to have fun once and awhile, while also forget about training every chance you get", he spoke with a low soft tone. Giving, his, point out to the young teen. Which Robert looked down and nodded.
Shadow was right, all week. Robert has done nothing but train his Pokemon, sure he was getting along well with them. But what Shadow said to him, really got him to think about his life. He definitely doesn't want to be one, to only think about Pokemon training/battling for all his life. Then he looked up at the older teen, smiling big at his friend. "Sure, thing Shadow. You and Yellow are right!" he exclaim, while entering back into the Pokemon center.
Which Yellow, just blinks her eyes. Watching the boy walk up to Nurse Joy, giving her his Pokeball's, minus Eevee and Pikachu. Which she couldn’t help but smile, knowing, Eevee was his starter and Pikachu was his first ever Pokemon he caught. Understanding, the bond of your starter and first captured Pokemon, letting them go is very hard.
Then shook her head a bit, when, she heard Nurse Joy speaking out, "Sure thing! We would love to watch over your Pokemon, now you go and have fun", she said smiling and giggling at the anxious boy. Who bowed and thank her. Then clip his two Pokeball's, to his pants. When he turned around, he notice Yellow was still standing there.
Curious of what’s, going on, which he shook his head with a smile, walking up to her, resting a hand on her shoulder. Smiled at, her. "I'll be taking a day off today, okay Yellow?" he finished, by tapping her shoulder, walking towards the exit. Feeling, that Yellow was still watching him walk away. He raised an arm up, waving while shouting out a bit. "Don't worry about the gym k? I'll be at the beach if you ever need my help with something." he reply. While he disappeared, from her sight, as the double doors, closed and block her vision.
She couldn't believe it? Robert is actually, going take a break from battling and training!? She sat down, for a quick second. Trying to gather what just happen, and just couldn't come up with a good reason. Leaning forward a bit, on the sofa she was sitting on. Resting, her head on her hands, her pony tail resting against her shoulder.
Sure, he hasn't rested at all, ever since they've enter the city. But still, she knows Robert ever since, and he will be the first to tell you. That he will be training somewhere, or capturing more Pokemon. But actually taking a break, there had to be something wrong with him?
She looked up towards the door, seeing Shadow walk in. Waving at, Yellow, while walking towards Nurse Joy, seeming to just start up a conversation. "Maybe...Shadow got through to him?" she thought. Then stared back to the door, well, if she ever wants to take the chance, and challenge the gym leader. This will be her opportunity, especially with Robert, out somewhere. Enjoying him, self.
Slowly, standing up, picking up and wrapping the straw hat, around her neck. Resting against her upper back, she grab her bag, and was slowly walking backwards to the door, constantly looking back and forth, between the door and Shadow. Then she quickly left the building, before he could notice her.
"Did she leave?" Shadow asked to Nurse joy, while keeping his right eye, towards the door. Then saw Nurse Joy nodded. Then tilt her head in confusion.
"Is something going on?" she asked. Bewhiddled, wondering why, one of the boy's friend’s, would want to know. She left or not. Seeing him standing up straight, looking a bit concern. Then turn his head at Joy with a smile.
"Just going… to solve little mystery behind our friend there. Thanks for watching Robert's Pokemon!" he exclaim, while running after Yellow. Once he exit the building, he was darting his head left and right, trying to find the young trainer. Who left in quite a hurry, and he spotted a girl with blonde hair, while pushing his way through the crowd, with excuse me and pardon's "Alright Yellow! You are going to explain your...Not Yellow..." he said, spinning a girl around. While her Hair, whip behind her head. Shocked her, which she blinked her eyes. Her face was cover a bit with freckles. Though she almost look's identical to Yellow.
Minus, the bikini though, sensing that she was about to hit the beach. While letting her go, he started chuckling nervously, while scratching the back of his head. "Huh. Sorry about that. I accidental miss took", then was quickly pulled by her, heard her squeal, "Oh my god! Your Shadow!", she screamed, alerting her friends. In turned, Shadow paled from seeing her friend’s.
"OH NO! Fan girls, I thought, I got rid of them in Johto!" he said out loud, while he tries desperately, to break free from her grip. While reaching for anything he can grab, to resist the onslaught of fan girls. Who were now, clawing at him and asking for his autograph. "WHY MUST THIS HAPPEN TO ME!!" he screamed out.
Which Yellow, whom was standing in front of the gym, quickly looked behind her a bit; Moving her eyes left and right, feeling the ocean breeze blowing gently. Then she closed her eyes and shrug, her shoulders. Then open the door to the gym, ready to challenge the next gym leader.
Meanwhile, with Robert...
He was just wandering around Vermillion city, seeing many different people and trainers. Chatting about, Pokemon, as they were playing around at the playground of the city. Along with a Machop, who was having a time of its life, stomping around the dirt; with a huge smile, and arms pumped up in the air, while its trainer was just shaking his head and sighing, as he was trying to convert and work on his blue print, of a building he wants to work on.
Walking down the path to the beach, with his hands now up behind his head, Robert just breaths in the sea air, relaxing his nerves at the same time exhaled, feeling the wind blowing gently and caress his skin. Closing his eyes for a brief moment and opening them back, ran into some one. While, stumbling a bit back, from the impact.
"Ooh...Huh sorry about that...Ruby!?" he exclaim out loud, seeing the girl rubbing her forehead. Grumbling under her breath, opening one eye. Ready to yell at the person, saw a hand was in front of her. Looking up to see who it belongs too.
"Robert!!" she excitedly said, while accepting his help. Being, pulled up to her feet, once she stood up, she was softly dusting herself off. While giggling, "I see you still call me, by that name." she reply, while adjusting her hat a bit. Looking back to, him, with a warm smile.
"So, are you here for the Gym battle Ruby?" Robert asked, while smiling at her. Rubbing, the back, of his, head; Which she shift, her body to the right, putting her hand, in the bag, and brought out the Gym badge, of Vermillion city.
"Already have, boy was that gym swamp and difficult", she said, between laughs. Seeing Robert nodding, understanding what she meant. Though, even he doesn't know what the gym leader haves. He then saw, she was about to say what they had. Before, he stopped her.
"Whoa! Don't tell me Ruby! I want to be surprise", he laughed along with her. Green knowing, that Robert wants the surprise for the challenge. Which, then, they both started walking again, hearing the children running around. Playing tag, or pretending to be Pokemon gym leaders/Elite four. One boy was actually wearing a cape, claiming to be Lance, with the actual red spikey hair style. Which Robert couldn't help but shiver, remembering how tough Lance was, at Mt.Moon.
Looking over to Green, seeing how quiet she was being. Just walking along with him, as images of what happen with her at Mt.Moon and that Team Rocket grunt, and just shook his head looking down. Trying to ignore those, event, he is taking a break! No need to reminisce about past events. Then look back up to her opening his mouth.
"So, how are you doing Ruby?" he asked, while cringing in his head. Which, she looked up a bit, pursing her lips to the corner of her face. Then grin back at him.
"I'm doing great, definitely, a lot better than last time." she reply back, while looking down the road. Which, was starting to, turn into a creamy, white sandy road, indicating, that they were reaching the beach of the city. Then look back up at him. "What about you? Were you able to get the 3rd gym badge?" she asked, curious if he did or not. Since she knows, that will be the first thing he would do. But eyes widen, when he shook his head no at her. With a caring smile!
"Hah. Not, today. But will do it tomorrow. Shadow and Yellow, insisted that I take a break and...Well here I am", he laughed at the end, along with Green. Who agrees, just looking at him and being near him, she can feel the tension coming off from him, and his restlessness.
"Well, I don't know who Shadow is, but did hear from Red. He is very kind and silly. But yeah, their right Robert, Your latterly shaking", she said, holding his arm up. Showing how badly his hand was shaking, from being tense and not having rest. Then started dragging him, to a concession stands. "Come on! Doctor orders you to get something to eat, and relax", she spoke up jokingly, while Robert just shook his head and went along with her. Glad, that Green is back to her normal self.
Meanwhile at the Gym,
Yellow was steadily and carefully walking inside the gym. No matter how many times, she enters a gym. That André line will all ways bubble up inside of you, ready to burst that bottle cap. To, ten-buck-two, and ricochet off the walls. Looking ahead of her, she could tell that the battle arena. Was, very flat and paved in a brown gravel floor. Making this arena, fit for Pokemon with high speed. Considering, how far and wide it stretches out.
With the edges of white chalk; ciphering, the distance of the boundaries, of the arena. Then whip her head up, to see lights being turn on, with each boom. Enlightening, the, gym. While hearing clip and clops, of what sounds like boots. Walking sternly and stopping underneath a spotlight ahead of her.
Her eyes travel from the feet, to the military cargo pants. Then up to an open brown military coat, and a black track shirt underneath the coat. The persons arms...If you can call them arms considering, how much muscles were shown. After, taken notes of that, Yellow gulped and continue following up with her eyes. Her head moving up with her eyes, being stare down by the tall man. Who eyes the color orange; staring back to her with a grin, his hair color is blonde and spiked up at the top. He was smiling big at her and boastful out laughter.
That echo out in the vast gym. "Aw look what we have here?" he said. Leaning down a bit, causing Yellow to shrink herself; Then grunts after feeling his fingerless gloves, rustling her hair." A Young trainer is here to challenge me. Now don't think I'll go easy on ya, baby", he taunted, while Yellow gritted her teeth and pushed his arm off of her. Fixing her hair back to place!
With a glare, she looked up to the menacingly tall Gym leader. She let out a breath of air, and rested her hand on her side. With tap noise on the pokeball, she grabbed it and held it in front of her and him. "I'm here to challenge you to a Pokemon battle!" she exclaim out loud. Causing, the older man to raise an eye brow a bit; Then went into a laughing fit, raising his body up a bit.
"OH boy lass. You sure you want to battle me?" he asked. Now holding his stomach; trying to calm down his laughter. While the same time, wiping his left eye. In case there were any stray tears. Seeing the girl was fuming a bit, flushed by embarrassment. Then, sighs. "Wow, you must be serious about this...Alright then", he suddenly announced.
Now the two of them, were standing at each end of the battle arena. Which; was a very long distance between the two. Yellow realized how long and wide this was, definitely means this was meant for speed type Pokemon. Looking around and checking to see if there's anything out of place. But spotted nothing! There's no real strategy to come up with, in an open field like this. Unless you are a flying type Pokemon or a digging Pokemon.
"Tell me lass", the leader shouted a cross the stadium. Alerting Yellow; causing her to whip her head up, from staring at the stadium and looking directly towards the Gym leader’s direction. "What's your name?" he asked as his voice boomed through the gym. Giving the intimidation feel about him. Which Yellow gulped a bit and shook it off, leering towards him.
"My name is Yellow!" she announced. Grabbing the pokeball from her bag, deciding on what Pokemon she would use for this battle. Throwing the ball forward as it sail through the air. Coming; down onto the stadium with a bounce and sounds of releasing the Pokémon from the ball. Her; partner Chu, coming out in a flash of white light. Pump its paws together and discharging some electricity, to show it was ready and willing to fight.
"A Pikachu huh...Seems like you understood what this stadium was built for", he said tauntingly. Causing, Yellow to blink for a bit. Wondering what he meant by that and surely enough will find out. Seeing how he grab a pokeball from the inside of his coat and threw it a cross to the stadium. Ball bursting open, the white beam shooting out from it. Forming and getting taller than Chu, which the mouse Pokemon look up, with its ears going down its back. Watching the light diminishing, showing a slightly brown color creature. Its ears were wide and shape almost like a lighten bolt. The long thin tail, stretch above its head. The tip being the actuall lighten symbol. With; yellow padded cheeks and brown stubby paws.
It stretched its paws out, with a menacing glare of its black orb eyes. Shouting out loud with its; discharge of electricity. "RAAAICHUU!" it proclaimed. Looking down at the Pikachu, whom was terrified beyond believe. Then looked over at Yellow; seeing her in shock too. At the same time sweating…
Then they both looked up to the Leader, seeing him wagging his finger. In; time with Raichu… Doing the same, "They call me. Lt.Surge, the, lighten, fast gym leader...So welcome, to my world of storms" he announced, glaring at the two opponents.
Back with Shadow...
"I swear girls! He was here!" the girl with freckles on her faced announced. Looking for the boy in. The multiple crowds that were surrounded the city, each and one of them, going corner to corner, desperately searching for the boy. Then one of them walked, up to an old man, who was using a cane to walk. The girl, who bumped into Shadow from before, walked up to the old man, who had a long trench coat, that hunch over him. He looked up at her and smiled,
"Ah. What can I do for you?" he asked. Noticing, how the girl was short of breath, trying and slowly calming herself down, bending down from loss of breath. Stood up straight and let out a breath of air. Then stare at the old man.
"We're looking for a boy, about yay high", by stretching her arm up and above her head. "And used to be Champion, in the Johto league?" she finished, by swinging her arms back to her side. Which, the old man brought a hand up to his hanging beard, stroking it gently. Then smiled, after his sun glasses shine a bit.
"Ah, he went that a way." he pointed, towards the exit of the city, which the girl, who asked him. Quickly turn to her friends, shouting this way. Seeing all of them running out of the town, while the old man, quickly stood up straight. Then threw off his disguise, revealing underneath...To be Shadow!
"Aw. Yeah! I did not expect that to work!" he shouted. Cheering on the inside his head, chuckling and throwing away the sun glasses. "And who says, cartoons don't teach you anything..." he smirked. Waiting till the cost was clear and when it was, he continued his search for Yellow. Although. He lost her, during the panic. He then figured that she will be at the gym, getting the thunder badge; from Lt.Surge...
So running south from where the entrance was, he slowed down his pace. After that he spotted, Robert near a concession stand, with a girl sitting next to him. Chatting away happily, figuring out that it was probably, Ruby/Green, one of his other child hood friends.
The description of the girl, definitely fits the mark. From what Yellow told him, and the way Robert is laughing. They must be very close friends; and couldn't help but smile at this. Continuing his walking and search for Yellow. He shook his head slightly and thought out loud, "Well; He's definitely enjoying himself, that's good! Now, just need to find Yellow." he continued onward...
Took him a while to find it, but he was able to spot the gym. That was near, the shores of the city, with the water rushing up against the mountain side. He walked slowly up the slopes, of the road. The sounds of rushing water and tattering rain. Then rushing sounds and density of the crashing waters, could be heard. Showing how strong and intimidated the power is...
Slowly climbing up on a couple boarded box, he raise himself. Up to the window, tilting and teetering a bit, causing the box's to shake under his feet. Looking through the window, he can clearly see a battle was about to start. Looking to the left side of the stadium, his eyes widen in shock! "I don't believe it!? It really is Yellow! So...She is going to take the league challenge, but...Why?" He thought to himself. Shaking out in anticipation. for the battle to get started.
Inside the gym...
The battle has now begun! Raichu; took the ignition and darted towards the small Pikachu, who quickly jump out of the way and used agility, to get out of the line of sight. From the attacking Raichu fury! Pikachu and Raichu, were trying hard to hit each other best as possible, but no matter what they did, they will miss. One will use quick attack, which will end up for the other to jump over them, sending out a thunder shock to the fleeting Pokemon.
In turn; was Chu, who quickly rolled out of harm way. Causing the thundershock to miss and flew pass Yellow. Who ducked quickly, from the oncoming attack as it exploded from contact to the brick walls. Then quickly looked up, to see Chu, getting strike down by a Mega punch attack. Causing the mouse Pokemon to go flying in the air and crashing hard down into the pavement. "CHU! Are you okay!?" she called out to her Pokemon, who was slowly flinching to get up. Watching Raichu slowly, walking and reaching to her friend and partner.
"Chu! Hurry and get out of there!" she called out. Watching Chu shake its head, and looking up, just in time to see Raichu firing a Thunderbolt attack at it. In turn, Chu raised its tail in the air, receiving the electricity and then bolted forward with quick attack. Slamming up against the bigger mouse's stomach, pushing Racihu back a couple feet. Before it could retaliate, Pikachu quickly, tail whip a cross Raichu's face. Leaving a tail mark behind, and then head butt Raichu father away.
Causing the two mouse Pokemon, to go into a paralyze state, from their static ability. Electricity surging through both of their bodies, trying their best to get up fully. But flinching every second, from the status abnormality, that was inflicted upon them.
"I have to hand it, to the lass…She isn’t half bad." He thought to himself, watching the battle taking place. Seeing the two Pokemon already worn out from the battle. Of, course, it did just started, all though with the paralyze status in effect. For both parties, it will, definitely over charge and harm both Pikachu and Raichu. Making it hard, for both electric typed Pokemon.
"I have to find a way, just a way, for Chu to win this battle." Yellow quietly said, watching Chu try and charge up its electricity. But then will collapsed, back onto the floor on all fours. Flinching from the electricity, covering its body, making it difficult to even stand.
Raichu, is also in the same predicaments. Trying and willingly getting back up, but the paralyze ailment, is just disrupting their way of movement. Since they needed to charge electricity, to attack and discharging.
Both Yellow and Lt.surge were gritting, their teeth. Trying to think of something, to get one of the Pokemon to make a move. Watching the two, just keep falling back down on the floor. Making this battle drag out, a little too long for their taste.
“Come on Yellow, think of something! Before Lt.surge gets the first move, or else, it will be all over for Chu..." He thought to himself. Watching how Raichu, was starting to move a bit better now. Ready to send out, what looks like a powerful thunder attack. From all, the pent up energy, that is gathering around the Yellow cheeks.
Yellow, whose is now panicking saw the orange mouse Pokemon. Charging its electricity, with wild and un-controllable energy. Then it clicked to her, noting about this. She looked over at Chu, seeing the small mouse was, panting and breathing hard. From all the static electricity all over it. After carefully, examining Chu, she finally came up with something. Both, forming an attack and defense!
"Chu!" she called out. "Use the static and quick attack at Raichu!" She exclaim, while moving her arm forward. The mouse Pokemon, smirking at this. Knowing what Yellow, wanted her to do now. Darting forward, allowing the static, to just run all over her. Using her own electricity, to act like a nervous system. Caused her to be cover entirely with electricity.
Shocking both Shadow and Lt.Surge, with their eyes wide as saucers. Seeing just a black outline of the little mouse.
"Raichu! Quick, use thunder!" Lt.Surge commanded, with haste and stutter in his voice. With a loud roar, Raichu pump both paws, down and came out a huge terrifying thunder beam. That, were heading straight at Chu.
"Chu, Absorb that attack and use it as your own!" Yellow called out. Leaving Shadow to drop his mouth down. Finally understanding what she is planning! She was going to make, her own version, of the Volt Tackle!
Once the thunder was about, to strike Chu, instead of blowing up. It encircle, around chu as it constantly and repeatedly shouted. " Pika,Pika,PikaPika!" over and over again, then Yellow thrust her arm forward shouting.
"NOW!" she screamed. Seeing the Yellow mouse jump right into, Raichu, causing a huge blinding light to appear. Along with a explosion, covering the entire arena, with smoke cloud. That blew in all direction, causing a huge gale storm inside the gym. Howling and moaning of the wind, echo throughout the entire arena. Shadow quickly duck under, after the attack made contact to Raichu. In that cause, the windows to break from the powerful force.
Lt.Surge and Yellow, were guarding themself from the wind, whipping and blowing hard against their skin. Yellow's hair, whipping and flapping against the gale, while the wind is dying down. Letting both Lt.Surge and Yellow, to lower their arms. With one eye open, wondering what happen to their Pokemon. Seeing silhouette of their respected Pokemon.
In the cloud, both Chu and Raichu were both starring each other down. Both panting and breathing badly, closing one eye at the same time. Both wondering who will be still standing, then they both grin. With little dirt under their lips, they both gave each other thumbs up.
"You...You did well...Chu", Raichu spoke out, while flinching and grunting in pain.
"You...Too, Raichu..." Chu reply back.
The two of them faces, were in pain. But Raichu then groan a bit, smiling at the Pikachu. Falling forward, feeling sleep succumbing it. Yellow and Lt.Surge all heard, the word, "Raai...chuu", from the orange electric mouse Pokemon. Hearing a thump along with it. The smoke clearing, the small Pikachu still standing, trying to fight back against the pain it was feeling.
"Well, I'll be...The lass did it" Lt.Surge said. His eyes wide and huge. Seeing her running to Chu, excitedly, watching the two laugh and giggle. Enjoying the victory, while he couldn't believe that, she use the aftershock of paralyze, as a mean to attack. "Using Pikachu's electricity, like a guide, must've re-routed the rare paralyze. Into thinking, it was its own..." Then he just smiled, and walked to Raichu, who was finally standing back up. Clapping its paws at the two challengers.
Then blink, when it felt its owner hands, on its head. Looking up to him and just smiled. Seeing his trainer, smiling back, just made it feel even better about itself. "You did great Raichu, who would've thought the lass, could do something like that?" He chuckled, which Raichu spoke its name in response.
Few minutes later...
"Here you are. The thunderbadge!" he said excitedly. Handing over the badge to Yellow, who was smiling big and couldn't let go of it. Feeling that her face might be stuck like that... For Chu and Raichu, they shook tails, allowing electricity to jolt the two. With their cheeks sparking also, laughing with each other. Complementing, to each other for, a job well done!
Then they all heard clapping, coming nearby them. That alerted Yellow, making her go paled, slowly turning her direction to the source. "Uh. oh." she spoke out. Seeing the grin on Shadows face.
"Yeah, uh-oh. But I must say", Shadow continue, while walking up to Yellow. Which she took couple steps back, chuckling nervously. Then eyes widen, from the next thing he said. "THAT WAS THE MOST, AWSOMENESS, SPECTACULAR, GREATEST FIGHT EVER!!" He screamed out, with excitement. Imitating, the battle to her, which left her to sweat drop. Wondering if Shadow, acts like a child sometimes. To make other's to feel good and happy. Well she can't blame him for that was an amazing battle.
"But yeah...How come you didn't tell, Robert that you were in the gym league?" He asked, lowering one eye brow, with a concern face etched on. Seeing Yellow looking down, in shame, hearing her partner. Letting out a low, "Chuuu..." confusing Lt.Surge and Raichu. Both tilting their heads at the same time.
After explaining everything, to the both of them, they were surprise to hear why. She wanted to enter the gym league. When her and Robert were heading home, one day as kids, they were attack by a wild Raticate. Scarring the poor girl, making her run away in fear, leaving Robert behind to handle the giant creature. When he re-met her, he was battered and bruised badly, along with the wild Ralts, whom came and rescue him.
"So, I figure...If I can challenge the gym, without backing down. I will be able to protect my friends, with my own strength and ability. Along with my Pokemon trust", she said. Never once looking at the two in the face.
Shadow, just looked down, understanding the feeling. Of, being scared of something when you are a kid, especially if you got lost in the forest. "So? Is that why you are afraid to tell Robert? Because, it might break your friendship", he asked. Looking up at her with a slight tone in his voice. Which Yellow, just grab her arm, rubbing it up and down. Nodding in response.
Lt.Surge, just absent minded rubbing his chin, along with Raichu who did the same. Making Chu laugh a bit. Then Lt.Surge open one eye at Yellow and Shadow, smiling big, showing his teeth.
"Well this Robert person...Is he going to be my next match?" he asked. Bringing both Shadow and Yellow's attention as they both looked at him, nodding at the same time. Then he fisted his hands in his coat jacket, bringing his toung out. Making a goofy face, like he is searching for something. Then smiled, bringing out what to be 4 tickets.
"Here you, go, a gift for him from me. I would like to challenge him, on the S.S.Anne", he chuckled, seeing the surprise looks on their face. Then Yellow's face, slowly turn into fear, jumping up on her feet.
"OH NO! I forgot! It's Robert's birthday tomorrow!!" she panicked, while pacing back and forth, mumbling about getting party gifts/decorations/balloons. Making Shadow sweat drop at this, while calmly speaking out.
"Yellow...The tickets are, more better than a party..." he chuckled at the end, along with Chu and Riachu and Lt.Surge...
Meanwhile...With Robert and Green.
"Okay, Thats good Eevee. You pick it up quite fast for, a normal type." Green complemented, the young brown Pokemon. The two trainers, spent most of their days, chatting and playing. While enjoying their lunches and playing at the beach... Reason for Eevee, being release out of its ball? Well, Green told Robert, and that, she haves a birthday present for him. That would help him greatly, against the gym leader.
They spent most of their time training on the beach. Considered Robert wanted to build up, Eevee's agility. Over hearing, some of the trainers, saying how fast the Raichu was. Sure it spoiled Robert's surprise for the next gym, but hearing how strong and fast this Raichu was. He couldn't help, but ask Green if she could help.
Course the girl was over excited, being able to pay a debt and that was due. Ever since the Mt.moon incident, so after telling Robert and Eevee, about a move he can learn. Which it was called, "Iron Tail".
They spent half the day, teaching Eevee about the move. Through the Pokedex instruction, from the TM. It was very difficult for the brown Pokemon. Since, it was a type move, along with Shadow Ball. The move also, took out a lot of stamina for Eevee. Since turning his tail into Iron, will weigh the Pokemon down. Making the brown pokemon, to cut his self and bruise up against the sandy beach.
Took them 3 hours, but Eevee manage to master the move. Before the sun was about to set, to its evening routine. Now the three are enjoying, the sound of the ocean waves. Brushing and sucking back, on and off the beach. Hearing the Wingull's cries in the sky, watching the clouds go by. Robert laying down on the sand, with his hands under his head. Eevee, snuggle against his side, sleeping and breathing calmly. The fur brushing against Robert.
Green, lay right next to him, using her hat like a pillow. Feeling the salty air. Blowing and caressing both her, Robert and Eevee, just lying there. Enjoying the quiet and gentle of nature. "Robert?" Green asked softly, looking over at him. Seeing him with his eyes close.
"Hmm?" he spoke back softly, with a slight hum in his voice. Just relaxing, feeling his nerves. Is finally being washed away, with the calming sounds.
"You do know? That the reason why I taught...Eevee Iron tail is a birthday gift for you?" she said, with a smile. Seeing Robert's shock reaction, almost forgetting about his birthday. Remembering, the month of July and tomorrow is the 18th. Surprise how the days, gone by so quickly. Then he just smiled at her.
"Heh. I almost forgot about my birthday. Thanks for reminding me and for the move Ruby...It will defiantly come in handy for the gym battle tomorrow." he said, getting up. Dusting the sand, off his pants. Which Eevee, squeak out of surprise, when its head landed in the sand. Looking up to his trainer, wondering if he is going to, retire for the day. Tilting his head, while his ear notched a bit.
Robert, reaching down to Green's hand, who happily accepted the help. Pulled her up on her feet, which she smiled and wrap an arm around his neck. Walking back to the Pokemon center, "Now, here's a strategy that might help you, against the gym leader", she said. The three of them heading back to the center.
Once they did get back, Robert was surprise, to see a lot of Party gifts and balloons around the center. Causing him to almost jump out of his shoes, then his friends, Shadow and Yellow. Came up to him, congratulating him for his birthday. Along with Green, who happily clap to, figured that Yellow is the one, who set this up, considering she loves. Making surprises for everyone in school.
Few hours later, the party was a big success. The guest from the Gym, was none other than Lt.Surge, who was happily making fun of Robert and teasing him. But complemented on, how he shows real promise for the battle tomorrow. For they are going to fight, on board the S.S. Anne, which Yellow gave, Robert, Shadow and Green all 1 ticket for the boat.
Green looking at the gift, felt a little weird in her stomach, just stared at the ticket. Over hearing Robert, saying how this was great and how they are all able to go. "Of course, it was great" she thought to herself, squeezing the ticket a bit, out of a little anger. But shook her head, when she heard Robert walk up to her, giving her the first slice of cake.
"Oh well...Learning Iron tail, is a lot better than some ticket for a boat", she said. Happily eating the cake, while tears fell down her cheeks. "HMMMMM!! Chocolaaatteee"
With that, everyone had a great time. For tomorrow, Lt.Surge and Robert, will be battling for the Thunderbadge, with everyone invited! Will Robert win the badge!? Will the narrator ever get a slice..
This was a good read, though I think you seriously should consider a beta reader. I was going to go through chapter by chapter and leave comments and reviews to help you out with grammar but I sadly don't have the time. Rest assured I did read it, though, and aside from the errors you've definitely got a worthy story on your hands. Like I said, though, from now on I'd suggest getting a dedicated beta reader to help you out before posting chapters and also to go through your previous works and help you edit them. Knowing they're not up to snuff grammatically isn't good when you don't do anything about it, know what I mean? Regardless, your characters are fun and quirky and I'm liking the way your story is progressing. c: Keep it up, Trainer Robert! I look forward to reading more and if you have a PM list I'd absolutely love to be added to it hahahah.
Thanks Dawn_hero ^^ Although, I don't know what PM listing means, but I would like it for you to in one ^_^.
I just need to know, how it works XD Glad you enjoy the story. Pokemon is a very new territory for me. I'm more used to writing Megaman Battle Network stories : ). Either way, glad you enjoy it XD
Though I don't really have a beta reader. Not sure who would want to, beta read this...
I still haven't found any one to beta read this yet. But if any one is up for it. I'll gladly appreciate it. Sorry for not posting in a long time XD Been busy with life and stuff. Any way, here ya go!
Chapter 15: Thunder badge on the S.S Anne
The four kids were all looked up, at the marvelous size of the boat, seeing how big and wide it was, with Robert, Shadow, Yellow and Green. Looking up with their heads back, with their hands over their forehead, blocking out the sun glare at them, as it was shining brightly near the tip, of the funnels.
Green whistle out a long blow. Then spoke up for everyone, and said whats on their mind. "Its bigger than our houses, together!" She said, with a chuckle, while the other 3 just nodded along with her, and looked forward, seeing a sailor. Accepting and greeting, what looked like, rich people and family's. Hearing the wingull's doing their cries, and flew around the funnels, at the top of the boat.
The water was splashing up and down, against the docks, while the ocean breeze was, softly blowing a cross the 4 trainers, with Yellow and Green holding onto their hats, at the same time, Robert was holding onto his back pack. Since it became, lighter over their journey. Now underestimating, their hual and items, that they were losing alot of items. Which he understand, why Yellow wanted him to shop. When they got here.
Once the breeze died down, they walked up in the line, chit chatting to each other. Robert and Shadow, talking about Pokemon evolution and tips on battling, while Green and Yellow was happily, talking about daily things and wondering what kind of people are on this boat, when they reached to the sailor.
He just let out a boastful laughter, at the trainers. Making them glare at him, probably thinking less about them, of how they wouldn't be able to get on. Without the expensive tickets, that cost like forturnes. Before he continue his taunting and teasing, all 4 raise their hands with a smirk on their faces. Showing their tickets to the sailor, who was slowing down his laughter and went into a nervous chuckle.
"Sorry to waste your time! Come on in!" He said in a panick, while sweating bullets, with the four trainers playfully, stuck their noses up in the air. Walking past him, then thank him for letting them in. Which he blinked at this, raising his hand up to his hair, blushing and chuckling. Thanking the trainers for their kindness and allowed them inside the boat.
Once they left he turned around, with a smile on his face, with more people coming and taking the trainers advice, while thanking the sailor, when he will let them inside. "Boy, and I thought civierly was dead", he thought to himself, with his smile getting bigger and bigger.
Looking up to the sky, seeing the bird Pokemon started flying away, from the boat's funnels, seeing dark clouds comign by. Which he raise a hand over his forehead, getting a bit worried. About a storm that is coming. "Well, long it doesn't effect the party, then everything should be okay!" he said outloud, which everyone looked up and nodded in agreemeant
Once the four trainers were inside, they couldn't believe the decor of the inside was fantastic! Red floor carpets, hanging lights of fine diamonds, pantins and expensive looking marble tables, that had cup holders here and there. Along with sented candles that werent lit, but looked warm, from probably being used last night.
They were just walking down the halls, along with people with fancy clothing, and strong looking Pokemon with them, while some were standing in the halls, chit chatting to each other. While bowing to the Trainers, which surprised them alot, since they weren't dress for the occausion. Then saw, that almost every signle one of them, were Pokemon trainers, while some, were breeders and contestants. While some were just owners, of Pokemon and treating them like pets. Making Yellow smile huge, wandering off from the others.
She likes people, who tend and care their Pokemon, and treating them as equals. Of course, the trainers, who had the pokemon out. Were smiling and happily talking with her. Seeing how much Yellow was getting into their conversation, Shadow turn to the other two. Speaking out and saying to the two, that they should take this time, to wander about on the ship.
Making Green and Robert agree to this idea, seeing how induce Yellow was, in the conversation she was having. Was making these two, wanting to find someone on board, to talk too also. Of course wasn't so hard for Green to get into a conversation, after seeing some Nurse Joys and other people, that looked like Doctors. Were all gathered in one hall, in turn making her jog up to them and ask advice about being a traveling Pokemon doctor.
Robert just grin wide seeing Green, able to talk to someone who would know about, healing and curing Pokemon when their injured. Then he looked over to Shadow, who was talking to People, that looked a little foreign, and saw the sign that was standing, next to the door way. Said, 'Johto travelers welcome'.
Tilting his head a bit, he wondered if Shadow came from Johto. Though wasn't quite sure about that, so he just shruged his shoulders and continue his way. Following the halls, to the main ball room. Seeing the size of the room, that stretches very far and wide. With dinning tables, cover with white table cloths and silver wear. That were place carefully on them.
Letting out a whistle, he walk towards one of the tables and sat down on chair. Seeing that both Trainers and Nobles, were chatting about and giving each other advices. While some were showing their pokemon to each other. While some were, complimenting how wel groom they were.
Robert just let out a small smile and looked down a bit. He wasn't really into these type of ball rooms or interaction about grooming. Heck, he got curious about the topic and released Eevee from his pokeball, which the light went to the floor and appear the brown fur Pokemon. Looking up to Robert with its black perl eyes.
"Hey Eevee! How ya doing?" Robert asked with a smile and chuckle, seeing how the brown Pokemon jump up onto his lap and lick his chin. Giving out a happy squeak, then notch its ears, with its eyes following Robert's hand. That glided a cross the brown pokemon fur. Making the little guy close its eyes, liking the soft petting from its trainer. While letting out a little squeak, from Robert accendently, rubbing its one ear.
"Oh sorry. Forgot about that little patch of fur eevee." He told his pokemon with concern. Seeing the pokemon shaking its head, trying to tell its trainer that it was alright. After a while, hanging around with Eevee. Robert couldn't help but feel like someone was watching him, from behind. So looking over his shoulders, he was surprise to see a little girl, with long blue hair that reaches to her back.
Along with what seems to be a noble dress. Staring at him and Eevee, with a gaze that says. "Nice to meet you and is that your pokemon"
Robert smiled at the little girl, whom smiled back and walked up to the Eevee. Petting it slowly. "Is this your Eevee?" The little girl asked. Which Robert could probably tell, she is about 6 to 7 years old. Nodding to the girl and setting the pokemon down to the floor, while kneeling at the same time.
"Yup, he's my first ever Pokemon and friend", Robert explain. Seeing the girl crouching down as well. Laughing at the playful Eevee, who was hopping back from her and then stepping in front of her. Trying to get her to play with him.
"That's cool...I can't wait, till I start my journey as well. When did you start?" She asked, with her gaze turning to the boy. Who looked up in thought, trying to remember what time and month he did left.
"Umm...Around about a month ago. Though I started a little late", He said embarrase about starting his journey at 11 years old. But knowing his mom, she would wanted him to be prepare then going out to the world. With no knowledge at all. Looking back to the girl, her eyes were wide in surprised and smiled big with actually breaking out of her noble stature.
"Really!? You don't need to be exhactly ten years old. To start your journey??" She asked, with hopeful looking eyes. Which Robert just nodded and got tackle down by his Eevee, who was fuming about being ignored. Causing the girl to laugh at that action.
"Y...Yeah, ow", Robert started, while rubbing his stomach and glareing at Eevee, who was trying to pretend to whistle. Then looked back to the girl. "You thinking of starting late? If so, then thats a good thing. Can get easily prepare", he explain. While the girl was so focus on him and wanting to know things about being a trainer.
"OH How rude of me!" She said suddenly, getting up and curtsey to Robert. "Name's Dawn Berlits, of the Berlits family", She finished, with Robert chuckling and bow to her in a playful manner.
"Well Dawn, my name is Robert arma. So what are you doing here on the S.S Anne?" He asked, while straighting himself back up. While Dawn, pointed towards a man. That was speaking with Lt.Surge.
"My dad and I, are traveling a cross diffrent regions. Right now, Kanto is our last stop. Then we are going to head back to Sinnoh", she reply, while smiling up to him and at the same time raising an arm up for a hand shake. "Well, I better get going. Nice to meet someone like you Robert", she said, while getting her eyes back to that. Noble stature, making Robert to rub the back of his head. Shaking hands with her.
"Of course! If you ever do become a trainer and if I am ever in Sinnoh. We should have a pokemon battle!" He said happily, with Eevee squeaking at the response. Causing the girl to laugh again and said good bye to the Pokemon and Trainer, while running back to her dad. Excitedly telling him about how, she met her first Pokemon trainer.
"Heh, we only been seperated for a short time and your already influence kids to become a pokemon trainer", Said Green, who walked up to the boy, along with Shadow and Yellow. Who all sat down at the table, with happy smiles. Which Robert figured they had a good time with the people.
"Actually, to be honest. She kinda came up to us. She definatly, took a liking to Eevee. So no doubt she wanted to become a trainer, once she gotten older." He explain, which all three nodded. Seeing how Eevee was having a good time, they decided to release their pokemon as well.
Shadows houndoom, Yellows Beautifly and Green's Warturtle. Which Robert was surprised to see that her Squirtle evolved.
"Wow! Ruby..." Stop mid sentence, seeing her glareing at him. Which he raise both hands up in defense. "Sorry! Green", which she nodded and smiled. "Any way. Hey Warturtle! How it going?" He asked the water type Pokemon. Who was smiling and saying it's name to Robert, trying it best to explain, how hard much hard work it have done over the month. While, giving a peace symbole with its claws. Letting Robert know that it is doing, its best to protect Green any way it could.
Once every one was all settle and getting food deliver to them. The three of them, were surprise how much attention Robert was getting. Ranging from children wanting to play with his Eevee, towards asking what its like to be a trainer. While some of the adults, were coming to him for aid. Of what they should do, if the said children who came up to him. Wanted to be a Pokemon trainer.
The boy was swamp and could not believe that neither, Shadow, Yellow or Green. Help him out of this situation! Its bad enough, that he is shy around people. But trying to give advice to the parents?! Now thats a difficult chore in itself. Thankfully Lt.Surge saved the boy from any embarrasement.
"Heh...Thanks Lt.Surge! Don't know how long, I would've been able to answer all their questions", Robert said, with a tired look. Seeing the Gym leader laughing and patting his shoulder.
"No problem, so any way? You ready for that Pokemon battle?" He asked with a smirk. Seeing how eager the young trainer is. With the other three, just quietly enjoying their food and meal.
Few minutes later ...
Everyone was now standing around, out on the deck. With the sea winds blowing and softly pushing the waves up and down a bit. Both trainers and Nobles were on the upper decks, watching the Gym battle that was about to take place, on the S.S Anne. Which will be the very first Gym battle on a boat.
Robert standing on the end of where Lt.Surge is standing. His vision was slowly getting dim and re-focus again. With the ship tilting up and down. Making Robert get a little motion sickness. Shaking his head to get rid of the feeling, blinked his eyes and re-focus what was ahead. Though he just couldn't shake the feeling of getting sick.
"Alright! Lets go Raichu!" Shouted Lt.Surge, throwing the pokeball forward. Bursting open and shot out a beam of light, revealing Raichu standing tall and proud. With its paws cross in front of its chest.
"Raiichu! chu, chu!" It cried out, while pumping its paw to a 'come on' motion. Which Robert smirk at this, while his hand shakingly, grab one of his pokeball. While slowly shaking his head trying to focus on the battle, that was sappouse to take place right now.
"Okay! Eevee, I choose you!" He shouted, while almost throwing the ball off balance. Once it landed onto the floor, it quickly burst open and revealed Eevee, with a determine look and ready for battle.
"Hey?" Shadow suddenly asked to Yellow and Green, which the girls shift their eyes at the older teen.
"Yes...We see it too Shadow", Green said. Making Yellow looking back to the girl with confusion. While following her arm that was pointing towards Robert. To let her see the condition he was in. "I knew this was a bad idea...Robert gets easily motion sickness on boats. But hey, knowing him. He will be able to fight against it", Green said, shrugging her shoulders a bit. While going back to continue watching the battle.
While Yellow stare back at Robert and gulped a bit. Consisdering that it was both her and Lt.Surges idea, to have him battle on the S.S Anne on his birthday. Well one thing for sure, this is definatly a bad predictament on both ends.
Even Lt.Surge was seeing this. Raising one eye brow at the same time. Noticing how Robert, was shaking a bit. But will constantly shake him self out of it. "Well kid...I hope you know what your doing", he thought to himself while thrusting his arm forward. "Raichu, show the little baby Pokemon what we can do! Go use quick attack!" He commended.
Which the Pokemon nodded and dashed forward with a beam of light behind it. While Eevee, move back in shock and waited for its command. "Eevee! Agility and then use swift" He tried to command, but quickly grab onto the side railings, trying to keep balance.
Eevee, lower one brow at the slow command, but manage to dodge just in time. By quickly side stepping, with agility. Then spin around in a circle. Shooting multiple stars that was about to make contact to Raichu.
"Raichu, thunderbolt!" Shouted Lt.Surge, which the mouse pokemon. Pump its paws ands shot out a powerful electric move, that was cutting through swift and mde contact to Eevee, causing the brown Pokemon to go flying and crashing into a wall. Which some of the spectators wince at this.
"Eevee! You al..Alright!" Robert slured a bit, trying to get the dizzy feeling out of him. Seeing the brown Pokemon slowly getting up and shaking its head. While getting back into it's battle stance, though got thwack by a mega punch. From Raichu whom appear right in front of Eevee, while thrusting its fist a cross the Pokemon cheek.
"Follow up with Thunder!" Lt.Surge commended, while Robert move his head to Lt.Surge and back to Eevee, who was struggling to get back up from the mega punch.
"Eevee! Defend by using Shadow Ball!" Which surprised every one on the ship and Lt.Surge.
"Ah, smart move", Shadow suddenly said, while chuckling slightly. Leaving Green and Yellow to looked at him. "You see, Thunder can break through anything. Because of how powerful it is. But! Shadow ball is also, made of pure energy. Which if the two collide", he left it hanging. While moving both hands apart to emphasize the end result.
"It will cancel out each other...But?" Yellow suddenly said, while watching Eevee charge up the shadow ball. "Will Eevee, survive the explosion?" She asked, which the two trainers pale a bit and look at the battle. She was right, Eevee already recieve alot of damage from Thunderbolt and Mega Punch.
"Now fire it up into the air Eevee!" He smirk to himself, knowing that Thunder gets shoot up into the air and then suddenly arch itself, towards the opponet. Which exhactly what just happen. Once Raichu let out a roar and discharging the electricity from it's cheeks, that cover around it's body to re-route it all over. Then fired it up into the air at the same time. Eevee fired off his Shadow ball at the same time.
Which both attacks made contact. Before it could even arch itself. Shocking every one around them. Making Green and Yellow jump up onto their feet with excitment. Especially Green who was analysing the scene that took place. "Now I see it, like Shadow said! If Eevee's shadow ball were to be fired into the air. Which will cancel out the Thunder attack, but Robert made Eevee shoot up into the air. Before it could arch itself!" She said excitedly.
Making Shadow and Yellow widen their eyes and looked towards the clouded battle field. smiling at the outcome of how it went. It all turned into what Robert wanted, but now the bad thing is. Both teams, can't see each other.
"Eevee! Run up the wall with agility and jump off at the same time, using swift attack!" Robert shouted, which made his friends to blink their eyes. This command was way to advance.
"Robert! Thats way to advance, Eevee won't probably have enou-", Before Green was able to finish her sentence, they all saw the brown Pokemon. Dashing out of the cloud and running up the wall with incredible speed. Then more shockingly, perform the command with out a hitch and fire off swift. Into the dust cloud, causing the cloud to split open, with a surprise Raichi. Who recieve the attack at full force.
"Now, follow up with Iron tai-" Robert said, but quickly went to his knees, before he could finish his command. Which this gave Raichu enough time to recover and upper cut into Eevee with a Mega punch. Causing the pokemon to scream out in pain and come crashing down into the deck.
Making some of the spectators to gasp. Dawn who was watching with her Butler, tug onto his pants and looked up to him. Seeing him starring back down. "Will...Will Eevee be alright?" She asked. With wavering eyes, getting really worried about the little Pokemon. Which the butler chiuckle.
"Don't worry young Dawn. All Pokemon will have to do this, when they battle each other. They can easily get heal at the Pokemon Center...But right now", he stop for a bit. To take a look at the struggling Pokemon. Who was growling and glareing at the Mouse Pokemon, with slight breathing. "If this were to keep up, that Trainer is going to lose..." He answer honestly, making Dawn to look at Robert. Who was struggling to keep, the motion sickness.
"I don't think its his fault. Looks like he doesn't fair well with boats", Dawn said. Which the butler nodded, seeing the condition the trainer was in.
Robert he was finally up on his feet. Quickly looked where Eevee was and saw how badly bruise it was. "Eevee! Agility!" He shouted. Which the pokemon nodded and dashed forward with a hop.
"Alright Robert...Lets see how well, you fair in a bad situation..." Shadow thought to himself. Seeing the action between the two Pokemon. Raichu trying its best to shock Eevee, with its thunder bolt. Which were missing its target. Eevee will constantly, hop left and right. Every time that a thunderbolt will be fired and miss. Richosheing off from the floor boards. In turn, making some of the spectators and trainers, to cover their eyes when. One of the bolts will fire straight up.
"Alright Eevee, quick attack off the wall and follow up with Iron tail!" Robert shouted, which Eevee nodded and jump onto the wall and shoot it self from the wall and rocketed towards a shock Raichu.
"Raichu, don't let him get the chance! Use thunderbolt!" Lt.Surge commanded, but widden his eyes, seeing Raichu pumping its arms. But no electricity coming out of its cheeks. "Thunder shock!" again. Nothing came up. While this was happening, Eevee wag his tail hard. Forming and making it turn into iron. Lt.Surge seeing this, quickly swipe his arm down shouting a new command that was Mega punch.
Thrusting its paw forward. Both moves made contact. Causing Eevee to move back a bit and Raichu's paw keeps going up. Which Eevee quickly moved its body again and landed a direct hit to Raichu. Whom moved back from the impact and holding its stomach. Sure it wasn't effective, since electric type aren't weak against.
"Quick Shadow Ball!" Robert quickly said, while quickly covering his mouth and turning around and facing off the deck. Which some of the spectators wince a bit and quickly look back to the little Pokemon who was charging up a shadow ball. high above it's head. Lt.Surge taking this his chance, while Robert is being distracted.
"Raichu! Hurry and use quick attack!" He shouted, which the mouse Pokemon did and charge straight towards Eevee. With every one leaning over the railings wondering, who will get the last hit. Yellow and Green were holding on to each other, chattering their teeth together, anxious to see who will deliver the final blow. While Shadow was bitting his nails like a type writer.
Eevee, seeing his trainer not focusing on the battle. Knew he was leaving it up all to him. Quickly slamming his head down, knowing it wouldn't fire it off in time, before Raichu strike. Once the move explouded from touching the ground. Causing a huge wind to blow every where, which got Robert's attention.
Every one was on the edge. Waiting, waiting for the cloud to disappear. Hoping to see who ever came out of the move. When the ocean breeze blew by, clearing away the cloud of smoke. showed Raichu standing there in soot. With its eyes blinking and puff out a smoke cloud from it's mouth. Falling backwards with swirls on its eyes. Everyone blinking at this and move their attention to a coward Eevee. Who was covering its eyes with both ears, shivering and shaking. Thinking to it self, "I'm dead, I'm dead, dead,dead. I lost...I'm..." Suddenly getting out of its thoughts .
Moved one ear away from its right eyes and took a peak. Seeing that Raichu haves fainted and on the ground. Letting out groans of its defeat. Then Eevee quickly got picked up by his excited trainer, who toss Eevee up in the air and caught him hugging it close. "You did it Eevee! You won!" He shouted, which every one was clapping and cheering. All of them were proud to witness a great Gym battle. That was spectactular and amazing sight to see. Especially on a cruise.
Yellow, Green and Shadow walked up to the trainer excitedly, congratulating Eevee with its victory. While patting Roberts back. Which then his entire face turned green and hand over Eevee to Yellow, while running towards the edge of the dock. Making his friends, flinch and wince a bit seeing this. While Lt.Surge was patting his partners head, which Raichu was smiling up to its trainer. "Heh, Not every day you get to challenge 2 great Trainers. In 2 days huh Raichu?" He asked, smililng at the mouse Pokemon.
Dawn who watch this nodded to herself and looked up to her butler. "I have decided, that once my 10th birthday comes. I want to be a Pokemon trainer." She said, with determination in her eyes. The butler was about to oppose from the suggestion, but one look in her eyes towards the trainer. Made him realise this battle and meeting with him. Encourage her final decission.
"Alright Ms.Berlits, we will have to check it over with your mother and father though ok?" He said with a big smile. Which made her smile and nodded. Looking back to the trainers below, trying to make Robert feel better.
Outside the S.S Anne...
"Here ya go! The Thunder badge!" Lt.Surge announced, handing the badge on to the open palm of Robert's hand. Who gave a meek smile from the motion sickness and nodded. Once they were done with their good byes and getting directions of where to head next. They headed off.
" Hey!" Yellow suddenly yelled, running up to a sign that was a bit ahead of them. Which the others caught up to her and saw her reading a sign. "There's an amusement Park, just a few routes ahead! We should go there and celebrate Green and Robert's victory!" she exclaim, clapping her hands together, getting smiles from others. Agreeing with the idea and headed off, with Yellow pulling both Green and Robert. Causing the two to get drag on the ground. Shouting to Yellow to slow down and calm down. While Shadow just laugh his head off from the scene.
"Aw man. This journey is definatly worth going. Though...", he suddenly harden his gaze. Staring at the three young trainers. "What will become of them? Once they make it to the Pokemon league..." He silently wonder, remember how some times. Leagues make friends turn onto each other and betray their friendship. Knowing how Yellow was keeping a secret from the two, it looked like it will be heading to that direction.
But for now...He will just follow them and watch how this all turn out. He is just having to much fun with the trainers. With the amusment park for their next destination. What fun things await for them? While I still haven't gotten a pieace of cake!
To be continue...

Chapter 16: Yellow vs Green. Who will stay and who will go!?
Its been a long journey for our trainers. But they manage to pulled through the most difficult and the most harshest of times. Now, their going to get some relaxation by...
"Yahoo! The carnival, carnival!" Shouted Yellow, happily spinning around. Then quickly started moving from left to right, with her hands over her fore head. While squealing a bit and bouncing a bit. Getting really impatient. Seeing all the diffrent kind of rides. From ferris wheel, merry go rounds, bumper cars, roller coasters and tons of diffrent attractions and games.
Robert, Shadow and Green were all just standing there and watching the excited girl. Just prance around and looking over at signs and diffrent games that were place. Leaving the three to just sweat drop and laugh nervously at the young blonde.
"Boy she sure gets excited", explain Shadow, by looking towards Green and Robert. Who both nodded and Robert looking up with a pointer finger.
"Well, back then when she was a kid. She useually gets sick when a field trip comes. So she some times, misses out on alot of things.", he said. Turning his gaze at Yellow. Deciding to walked ahead of the other two, which he was suddenly pulled in by Yellow and carried off to the ticket stand. With him yelling to her to stop.
Green and Shadow follow right behind them. With Green letting out a hum and crossing her arms a bit. Closing one eye and tilting her head a bit. "Some thing wrong Green?" Asked Shadow, he looked at the brunette girl.
"I know I'm forgetting some thing...Especially between these two. Some thing out of character" She said, leaving a hand under her chin. Getting into a deep thought, causing Shadow to raise an eye brow and turn his attention at the two young trainers. Whom came back with tickets for every one.
Every body that was there, were having tons of fun and enjoying them selfs. By playing games at the stands, that were shooting water into a Squirtles face. Which who ever fills the balloon up with water first and blow it up wins. While some of the games, have you toss rings and hope that one of them lands on top of the bottles. Some shooting a ball into a hoop and many more.
Seeing the looks Yellow and Robert were giving, Shadow just had to smile. Seeing the boy finally relaxing, from intense training and the battle he had recently. Plus the miss hap of motion sickness. Its no wonder, these two will be excited.
"Lets go on that ride!" Yellow and Robert both shouted, pointing at 2 diffrent rides at once, causing Green to pump her arm high into the air and shouted.
"Thats it! Thanks you two...Uh oh", she suddenly said while blinking her eyes and caused Shadow to do the same and looked over at them. Then back up a bit, seeing that Yellow and Robert were glareing at each other with leering eyes. Sending off very high level of threat to each other.
Robert pointed at a ride that was slow and good for relaxing. While Yellow was pointing at the roller coaster and other fast and thrilling rides. In other words, they chose the exhact polar oppasites of what one wanted to ride on.
Putting her fists on her waist, she lean forward with annoyence in her voice. "Come on! You always want to go on the slow and puthetic rides!" Yellow announced, gritting her teeth at the boy. Who crossed his arms and lean forward with his head.
"Well! You always want to go on fast and dangerous rides!" He proclaim, causing Green to slump forward and let out a huge breath of air. Making Shadow chuckle a bit with his shoulders moving up and down. looking at Green, pointing at the two.
"Is this what you meant? Their personality is...", he started snapping his fingers, trying to ge tthe word out. Which Green finished for him.
"Out of character? Yeah", she replyed. Resting a hand over her head. Rubbing where the hat was and shook her head. "The first time, Yellow actually came with us. To an amusement park, Robert and Yellow will always choose seperate rides. Which causes them too...Well", then motion her head towards the two.
Who were now yelling at each other at the top of their lungs, Yellow stomping her foot, while Robert haves his arms down against his sides. Causing both Green and Shadow to just stare at the arguing trainers. Shouting out nonsence to each other at the same time. Saying how their prefer rides are more better than the others.
"Shouldn't we stop them?" Asked Shadow, which Green shift her eye towards him and drop her head and walked forward. Noise from the two getting louder. Once she got to them and looking at the two kids. Getting a tick mark on her head, while slowly raising her fist up a bit.
"KNOCK IT OFF YOU TWO!" She screamed, hitting them both over the heads, causing Yellow and Robert to quickly crouched down low, rubbing their heads from the two large bumps that were showing. Yellow wincing and turning her head towards Green.
"Green...What did you do that for!?" She asked, while standing back up. Softly touching the bump with a hiss at the same time. Robert getting up and glareing at Green with annoyence.
"Yeah! We were having a discussion here!"
"NO! You weren't! You two are screaming and yelling at each other. For which rides to go on...seesh", she stop mid sentence. While scratching the side of her cheek and tapping her foot. With Shadow finally joining in with the conversation.
"Why do you two act like this any way?" Shadow asked, which caused Yellow and Robert to blink and stare at each other. Then suddenly glare and humph at each other, both of their arms cross and looking away at each other.
"Why?! Because we all know, that fast rides are really dangerous!" Robert Pro-claimed, closing his eyes.
"Because slow rides are really lame and boring!" Pro-claim Yellow, moving her head to the side, not accepting Roberts pressence. Green gritting her teeth and leering at the two, although Shadow saw that her gaze was mostly towards Yellows direction. Making the older boy to question this a bit.
"Alright then!" He suddenly announced, causing every one to look at the boy with questioning looks. Raising his hand up near his face and winked at the others. "Then we shall ride both fast and slow rides, so this way we can please both parties! How does that sound!" He exclaim, while smiling at the three. Green nodding a bit, while Yellow and Robert groaning about its a waste of time.
Once they headed out to the rides. They started with the slower rides. Which were like bumper cars, mirror mazes and merry go rounds. Although Robert, Green and Shadow were enjoying them selfs. Yellow was fast asleep on the merry go round, getting frustraited and shouting out in the mirror maze and purposly letting her bumper car get bump. Not enjoying any of the rides they went on, or attractions they enjoyed.
Though rides like tea cups, or small roller coaster. Everyone was sort of fair on it, but still Yellow just let out a yawn and didn't bother with the rides. Once they were done, riding the slow ones that Robert wanted to go on. Yellow and him went back into screaming and yelling at each other, after she made a comment saying that those were baby rides. Which Green and Shadow just sat down at a picnic table, glareing at the two trainers. Wondering when this will ever stop.
Once the group finally got them to settle down, thanks to Greens monsterous punches to the trainers head. Causing both of them to fall on the ground and shaking in fear, at the girl who was towering over them. Before she could say anything though, Yellow suddenly jump up and squeal saying its time for the fast rides. Robert's face just pale at this, while getting pulled to the rides.
Yellow have proved to them, that on the outside. She is a caring and soft girl. But deep inside...Shes a thriller girl! She went on to any rides that were incredibly fast and some that were spinning at high speed, along with rides that will bring you so high up and suddenly drop you down in a bungie like motion. Even Roller coasters. The girl was definatly one for excitment and thrills, shockingly surprising Green alot.
After they were all done with the rides, all of them minus Yellow. Who went to get some food for every one. Were waiting outside of the bathroom...Poor Robert, his face was turning all diffrent shades of green and colors. From each ride they took for Yellow. The boy was litterly falling down to his knees and bumping into every thing that came his way, from being too dizzy to even walk.
Thankfully, Green called off any more rides until he was back to standing on his own two feet. Shadow was definatly surprised how terrify Robert was, the boy wouldn't even let go of the railings in the line and took all 3 of them. To just pull him off, while breaking the railings in half.
After the boy finally came out from the restoroom, holding his stomach and groaning. Mumbling how he hated Yellows taste of getting thrills. Said girl came back with every ones order and her holding cheese fries. Caused Robert's face to turn green again and ran back to the restroom.
Green getting a bit annoyed, grab Yellow by the arm and started pulling her away from the amusement park. With Yellow trying to walk back to Shadow and tugging her arm. Trying to break free from her grip. "Geeze Green, you have a grip there", Yellow exclaim, trying to break free.
Green shaking her head a bit, looked over towards Shadow. "Shadow! Make sure Robert eats and look after him...While I have a private chat with Yellow here...", she explained why glareing at the girl. Whom blinked her eyes in confusion and wonder what Green wanted with her.
Couple minutes have passed, since they left the amuzement park. With Green looking around her and starring at the trees, that were rustling and blowing gently against the wind. While looking behind her and Yellow. With her brown hair rising a bit and gently rested on her back. Then nodded with closed eyes, letting go of Yellows arm.
Walk off couple good distance from Yellow. By having her arms out in a 'T' formation. Counting her steps in her head. Spinning around, to face Yellow whom. Tilt her head in confusion. Then back up a bit, seeing the glare that was being sent to her. Green's hat casting a shadow over her fore head a bit.
Thrusting her arm forward, pointing at the blonde hair girl.
"Yellow!" She called out, causing the girl to flinch a bit from the tone of her voice. "I want you to stop journeying with Robert now!" She announced, causing Yellow to raise an eye brow a bit. Scratching the back of her head.
"Umm...Why? Robert, Shadow and I are getting through things okay...I don't really need to see why I shoul-" Yellow started explained, causing Green to face palm her self and shook her head. Looking up to the sky and breathing out a sigh.
"You just don't get it do you Yellow?" She asked, sliding her hand back down to her side. Resting it on her hip for sappurt and saw Yellow. Just shrug her shoulders at Green. Whom sweat drop and let out a small chuckle. Remembering her mother telling her, to always finish her sentences when talking. "I mean...Whos the strongest in your group so far Yellow?" She asked. Knowing how the girl felt about people comparing her strength with others.
"Well...Umm...I would say number wise...Shadow, but he only shown one Pokemon. So we don't know how strong he really is...", she explain while holding up one finger. Then raise another one. "2nd will probably be Robert", before she could finish her sentence. Green interrupted her.
"Exhactly! Your the weakest in the group right? Always staying behind the side lines. Letting them take care of the more dangerous stuff. Am I right?" She said, grinning a bit, but blink her eyes, seeing Yellow once again. Shrug her shoulders and nodding her head a bit. "okay...Something I miss?" She thought to her self.
"I do my best to help out possible I can...I wouldn't say I'm well..."
"un-realiable? Useless?" Green finished for her, getting a bit nerved. Though seeing Yellow glaring back at her. Definatly threw her for a loop.
"Never have I...!"
"Lets face it Yellow! You always let some one else do battle for you. Never once, aiding them in the time of need...", she exclaim, while grabbing her pokeball. Looking at Yellow whom harden her gaze at Green.
"What are you trying to do Green? You were never like this when we were kids...", taking a step forward. She let out a shakey breath and had to know something. "Green? Why are you being like this?" She asked, with concern in her voice. Watching Green just grit her teeth a bit, throwing her pokeball forward. Releasing her Warturtle out of its pokeball, with dark blue skin. With wave symbole ears on the side of its head, its brown and yellow shell. Covering the rest of its body, pumping its arms up and down shouted.
Yellow taking a step back a bit, surprised that Green was sending out her Pokemon for a battle. "Green? Wh..Why are you doing this!?" She called out, slowly moving her hand to her pokeballs. Seeing Green just looking down to the ground, her hair fore shadowing her face. Neglecting any one to see her emotion. Shoulders shaking up and down.
"Because...Robert shouldn't have to walk and travel with some one who is weak..." She whisper out. Causing Yellow to slightly widen her eyes a bit. Seeing Green looking up with tears going down her cheeks. Gritting her teeth. "You know how it felt?! To be capture and couldn't do anything to help him, to defeat the enemy!" She shouted, causing Yellow to take a step back in surprised.
Then blink her eyes, realizing that Green was mentioning the event on Mt.Moon. "You mean?! The incident at Mt.Moon?!" She asked, seeing the confusion going through Green's faced, shaking her head a bit.
"Robert...Robert didn't tell you what happen?" She asked, her cheeks a little red from letting the tears flow. Pointing to Yellow who nodded her head and explain that. No matter how many times she asked him. He would always tell her, when ever he feels like hes ready to speak. This made Green stare at Yellow for a bit and then towards, her Pokemon whom. Looked back with a smile and giving a thumbs.
Saying in a way, that Robert kept his promise. Looking down with a slight smile. "He...Kept his promise after all. Heh...Robert haves come along way and if Yellow doesn't know? While trying everything to get it out of him. Then...She must've grown too. But I still won't let Robert, suffer the same fate he did at Mt.Moon!" She thought to herself. "Time to change tatics with this...", She finished, while giving a little smile. Looking up to the blonde hair girl.
"Alright Yellow, how about a little bet?" She asked, making the blonde girl, lower her gaze a bit and slightly move her head a bit. Her mouth slightly open.
"What kind of bet?" Yellow slowly asked. Seeing the grin on Green's face, getting a little scheaming.
"If I win...", she let the sentence hang for a bit. Tapping the bottom of her chin and looking up to the sky. Shifting her eyes down to stare at Yellow. "I will take your place and travel with Robert", she announced. Smiling at Yellow whom step back a bit, not liking where this bet was going.
"And if I lose?" She asked slowly, got her pokeball ready.
"If you lose...You have to go back home!" Green announced. Making Yellow harden her stare and wouldn't believe that Green wanted her to go back home, after coming this far in their Journey.
"Can't believe, I'm actually going to go through with this...Come on out! Beautifly!" Yellow shouted, thrusting the ball forward. After landing onto the ground, it burst open and shot out a beam of light. Once the light disappear, it showed a butterfly looking creature, with blue color orbs for eyes, with rainbow color decorative pattern wings. A curled up thin nose. Is back being grey and the stomach and face, being white color.
"beauuuutifly!" The pokemon cried out.
both Pokemon starring each other down, waiting for the first command to be announced. With the girls looking at one another and nodded at the same time. With the wind picking up a bit in speed, softly blowing their hair a bit.
"Go!" They both called out. Making both Pokemon to charge at each other. Beautifly keeping itself in the sky, knowing that Warrturtle could pulverize it, if it ever got to close to the turtle pokemon. But quickly swerve to the right. Dodging a water gun that nearly, made contact to its stomach.
Swerving and diving, from the multiple water gun attacks, that were missing every time. Cause Green to grit her teeth a bit, but then looked towards one of the trees and smiled. Looking back to her pokemon, she quickly pointed to the side.
"Warturtle! Aim at that tree!" She commanded, which the water Pokemon. stop its firing and looked towards the direction that its trainer wanted it to shoot at. Quickly running forward and jump a bit. Lean its head back and bob forward. Shooting out a powerful gush of water gun at the tree bark. Causing it to ricoshet off, in turn causing it to go flying up towards Beautifly.
Yellow seeing this, panic a bit and tryed to give out a command. Before the attack could hit, but was too late. Beautifly recieve a full blow from the attacked. Soaking the bug pokemon, while pushing it down a bit. Which then Warturtle, quickly turn around and fired off its water gun again at the ground. Propelling it backwards and ram right into Beautifly, sending it flying back up into the air.
"Beautifly, quick! Before it can land. Use Mega drain!" Yellow cried out, which the Beautifly quickly straighten itself and started glowing green, along with Warturtle. Whom closed its eyes and started grunting in pain. Then small green orbs of light, came flying out of Warturtle and into Beautifly, Which the butterfly Pokemon quickly smiled and dance in the air for a bit.
"Good, now follow up with silver wind!"
"Warturtle! Used Withdraw!"
Each trainer gave out their commands to the pokemon. Which they did as they were told. Beautifly flapping its wings as hard it could. Sending out silver like winds towards the turtle Pokemon. Whom quickly tucked in its head, legs and arms. Into its shell, getting a direct blow from the attack. But only managing to shake and rock the shell a bit. Not making good amount of damage to the water type Pokemon.
"Alright then" Yellow exclaim, through gritted teeth. "Use string shot and spin Warturtle around!" She called out, which Green moved back in surprised.
The Butterfly pokemon, stop flapping its wings. While straightening its thin like nose and shot out a white sticky string towards the shell of the Pokemon. Once that happen, Beautifly started to spin around and around and around. Lifting the Warturtle shell off the ground and into the air. Causing it to smack into trees and branches.
"Wartutrtle! Break out by using Bite!" Green called out, which the Pokemon took its head out of the shell, closed its one eye and open its mouth wide as possible. Chomping down and breaking the thread that was stuck on its shell. By doing this, it went flying into a good distance, flipping its self over. Landing and sliding to a stop, quickly looked up to the Beautifly. Who was having trouble stopping, fired off its water gun at the Bug Pokemon.
Making a direct hit and pushed it up into the tree bark that was behind the bug Pokemon.
"Beautifly! You okay!?" Yellow called out to her pokemon, seeing it struggle to get back up from the ground. " If I keep this up. Green will win this match. But...How am I sappouse to beat Warturtle...Think Yellow, think!" She thought to herself, looking around the surroundings. Looking at all the trees and bushes that were around them. Widen her eyes a bit, seeing a small thread hanging off from a branch. Then smiled and looked towards Beautifly who finally manage to get back into the air, slowly at first.
"Better give up Yellow. Using Beautifly to battle against Warturtle, was a bad choice", she explain. Seeing how Yellow was trying to come up with a stragety to fight back. "This is what happens...To those who arent prepare or are weak to even defend them selfs!" She shouted, while thrusting her arm forward, with determination in her eyes. "Warturtle, use Skull bash!" Green called out, which Warturtle, started to gather alot of strength. Slowly lowering its head. Yellow sweating and gritting her teeth at this, she knew how powerful this move was.
"Heh. I've train all day and night. To teach Warturtle this move", Green started to explain, while moving a open palm to her side. Chuckling a bit, "To be honest, it was very difficult to accomplish. I almost lost my will, after the incident at Mt.Moon", she then looked at Yellow with seriousness. "But seeing how brave and determine Robert was. With only Pidgey left in the fight. I knew, I had to up my game and get strong to protect those who are in need. Especially if I am to be a Pokemon docter!" She announced, seeing that Warturtle was about done with its move.
"I only get one shot at this...", Yellow thought to herself, then called out to Beautifly. "Beautifly! Cover the trees with String shot!"
Which the bug Pokemon, did exhactly that and fired off. Stream upon stream of sticky thread up at the trees, covering them with silver coating and threads. Trying it's best to, get the entire area cover with blankets of shining threads.
"Its too late! NOW! Skull bash!" Green shouted, by swiping her arm down. With all the energy it charged up, Warturtle blasted forward and broke through the ground it was standing on. Causing a crator to be place. Flying and soaring through the skies, with white energy covering its entire body. Heading straight towards the Bug Pokemon. "Its Over Yellow", Green thought with a smug grin. But blinked in surprised, from what Yellow commanded next.
"Now Beautifly, use the string to pull youself out of there!"
"What!?" Exlaimed Green.
Beautifly did exhactly that, flung its self over Warturtles head, making the turtle pokemon widen its eyes. Crashing right into the bark of the tree, implanting its head in it. "Warturtle!" Green exclaim outloud. Worried for the Pokemon's safety. Then looked up towards Beautifly, who was couple feet away from the multiple string shots.
"Quickly now! Use Gust Attack!" Yellow shouted with a smiled and one arm raised. The Butterfly pokemon cried out and started flapping its wings, very hard and with percise aim. Started throwing the covered forest threads, right towards Warturtle whom finally got free from the tree. To only get glued back into it and getting all tangled and tied up from the strings, while recieving heavy damage from the Gust attack. The poor Pokemon was cacoon inside the string shot. Making it immoblize and making it un-able to continue on with the fight.
Green just stood there, with one eye twitching a bit and mouth open a bit. "Holy cow...Thats...Thats amazing!? Covering the forest around us with string shot. To pulled Beautifly away from the attack. Then following up with a Gust attack behind said strings. To blow them directly at Warturtle and cacooning him up with it. So it won't be able to attack and move at all...Yellow...When did you get this strong?" She thought at the end and stared at the Blonde girl. Who was helping Warturtle out of the cacoon and started healing it. From the battle it just got done with. Once it was healed, it smiled up at the blonde girl and thanked her for the help.
Looking down to the ground, smiling to herself. "Heh...I must be a complete fool...To think that Yellow wouldnt train herself, to get strong. But?" Looking back up tot he girl, with a curious gaze. "Why so much strength and skill for this battle? What are you hiding Yellow?" She thought to herself and decided to help the girl out. Resting a hand on her shoulder, causing Yellow to look up and smile at Green whom smiled back.
After they got everything settle and said that the bet was off. They headed back to the spot where they left Shadow and Robert. When they arrived, both girls blinked their eyes and saw that Robert was holding and carrying alot of game prizes. From huge stuff Pokemon dolls and toys, while Shadow was fuming and mumbling under his breath, saying how Robert just got lucky in those game.
Which Robert agreed, that it was probably just luck that he won in almost 10 games, him and Shadow played. While also going on some rides and inside diffrent scary rides. Which Robert explain to them, that he kept hearing a girl like scream. In which there was no girls around them, or girls who were on the ride. Just hide their eyes on Robert's shoulder.
This kinda made Green turn head a bit and asked if they screamed. Which then she snap her head back and blink. Seeing how Robert was rubbing the back of his head, with his eyes soften. Saying that even with a girl on the ride, they werent screaming at all. Or just pretending to scream for fun. Then said, it always happen once a horrible bad puppet spider will suddenly drop down, to surprise the riders.
At this, Shadow turned around and gotten pale. Hoping that none of them, will connect the dots that it was him. Who got scared.
Handing over some of the prizes he won to Green, causing the girl to blush a bit and laughed at how. Robert said, he wouldn't be able to carry it all by himself. Plus, couldn't figure out how to send it back to his house. Green just blurted out, she will keep some of the items with her. But also handing some to Yellow, a small Pikachu limited edition Pokemon league doll. With light up cheeks, every time you would hug it. Though they had to laugh at the girl who, kept most of the bigger prizes. Robert earning a punch on the head, after he said that Green was such a over achevier.
Dusk was finally peaking its way through the day. Saying their good byes to Green, whom said that she will be around the route near Rock Tunnel. In case they ever needed some one, to light up the way. The other three decided, to spend some more time on the rides, which once again. Commence the argument between Yellow and Robert. Wanting to go on seperate rides, which both of them this time. Got bonk on the heads, from Shadow. Who announced, they would go on rides, that he wanted to go on. Making the two teens scared at the dark aura he was giving to them. Quickly Hugging onto each other and nodding their heads in fear. Seeing the boy give off a evil laugh.
Thus tomorrow, their Journey will continue once more!

Unova journey:Robert arma, Reborn of the white knight! Chapter 10 and 11 in the works
Okay, I have to admit that the ending of this chapter is rushed. But! Hope you all still enjoy!
Chapter 17: I say Bulba and you say Saur
It was a quiet night and the sound of chirping crickets could be heard throughout the forest. All of the pokemon that were nestle in the trees. Were sound asleep and huddle together to keep the night cold air off of them self. Some of the bird type Pokemon was in their nests and inside tree barks and holes. Rattatas, Caterpies and Weedles, were all making beds out of their silk threads from their String shot attacks. While the Rattata's were gathering leafs and hay off from the ground, to make a burrow to sleep on.
Metapod's and Kakuna's were all hanging tightly up against the tree barks. Covering them selfs in a caccoon of String shot, so they will stay warm in the night.
Little ways off from the forest areas is a clearing where some more of the rarest Pokemon live. They were the grass type pokemon called. Bulbasaur and Ivysaur, The biggest one of the entire group was Venasaur.
They were all happpily resting and sleeping together. Not letting the cold air bother them what so ever. Soon a Illumise started flying by and dancing in the air, with its bulb. Glowing and dimming, showing the happiness it was shareing by coming low to the ground, it flew by a Bulbasaur that was sound asleep. The youngest one of the group started stirring and blinking its eyes open.
Once they were fully open, it looked up at the lighten bug Pokemon. Curious of why it was here? But did not mind at all… It got up and started chasing the bug pokemon over the field. Happily saying and barking its name at the bug Pokemon. Who, responded by smiling and glow its bulb brighter at the pokemon. Though when Illumise flew over a hill top, Bulbasaur suddenly took a leap into the air and widen its eyes. Seeing that it just jump over a log and out into a mountain top.
Flailing about, it fell hard onto the slanted mountain, rolling and screaming out. Crying for help to the others! Alerting them that it was in danger, but before they could come to its rescue or hear its call for help. Bulbasaur disappeared through the tree tops, with a loud thud. Cause a dust cloud to appear.
The Bulbasaur who had crashed landed started rubbing the bruise mark on its forehead. Wincing one eye open. Trying to figure out where it was and where it landed. Getting scared and frighten, it backed itself into a bush. Looking out into the woods, seeing how the trees and branches were deform and transform into monster like trees, that were reaching down ready to grab the grass Pokemon. The bulbasaur started to whine and cry out.
Hoping for this nightmare to end and that its friends will be able to find it soon...
The next day in the morning…
"Ah...Ah...ACHOO!" sneezed Robert, who sniffed his nose a bit with one finger. While bring back to his side. The poor boy somehow caught a cold, from training late at night with Pidgeyotto, Butterfree, Pikachu and Eevee. For one of their most interesting training sessions ever made by their trainer. In which, was to seek him out in the dark. By using their senses to spot him and seek him out.
Though, he had to admit. That they were able to find him easily apparently, Pikachu and Eevee were good leaders of the group and gave Pidgeyotto and Butterfree strategy of how to seek him out. First one was Pikachu riding on the back of Pidgeyotto, in turn taking the skies and having Pikachu jump off from the bird pokemon. To light up the night sky with its thunder shock attack!
This is where Eevee and Butterfree came into play. With the help of Pikachu’s thunder shock to light up the night sky and giving a light to guide the two. Eevee will use his eye's to stare out into the forest and carefully look at the shadows; to see if any of them seem out of place or, deform from anything that interfere with them.
If that doesn't work...Eevee will then tell Butterfree, to use its gust attacks. To blow off dust and pollen in the air in hoping, that Robert will give out a sneeze or start coughing from the dust. Wasn't really a bad idea and smart for said Pokemon. Although, they were a little off and accendently used to much force with the gust attack and sent Robert flying into a nearby lake.
Frantic as they were, they all rushed down and stop next to the lake. Seeing the hard and frustraited looks their trainer was giving them. Cause everyone a one way ticket to no training for a week. Before they were sent back to their pokeball's, the pokemon all started bursting in laughter. Seeing how some of the night life water Pokemon. Whooper and Surskits were happily playing and sitting on Robert. In term of making it alot harder for the boy to get out of the lake, thus, why he caught a cold.
Shadow and Yellow were both worried about the boy and he could understand why... While also sappurting a very bad bump on the head, curtisy of Yellow yelling and lecturing him, saying how he takes things way too far and should know when to stop if things were to much. He could swear that she hang out with his mom too much.
Shadow was no help either, adding more to the fire. Making Yellow give more lectures of why he should takes things slow.
He wouldn't change any of this. He enjoy the company between the two. Even if he would get lecture and told to take things slowly. He wouldn't trade his friends for anything in the world and hope that it will stay like this for the rest of his journey. Though, he had to be real about this...Sure they’re with him right now and having the time of their lives.
But once the journey is over and that the Pokemon league is over for this year. They soon will be going seperate ways and diffrent goals in their life. Looking over to Yellow… Who was rummaging through her book bag, making sure to not drop anything in their walk to the next town location.
He remembered asking her a question in one of the nights that they couldn't sleep at all. He wondered what her goal in life was and the response he got. Was that she wished, to travel and meet all kinds of people and Pokemon in the world they live in. But is more settle to just staying in Kanto and helping out anyone who are in need of assistance. That and wants to run a fishing shop with her grandfather.
He had to chuckle at the memory. Yellow loves to fish and relax in any way she can. Also, she tend to fall sleep at random spots and is content on staying like that, un-till she feels that she rested and regain back any energy she lost. In turn made him raise another question? She is a viridian child...Could that mean, that getting excited easily and using up a lot of energy cause her to fall asleep, in the most weirdest and oddest of all places? The more he thought about it, the more sense it made. Every time she will go and heal any of their Pokemon with her power’s she will suddenly fall right a sleep or get tired easily.
It was also odd, during one of their Pokemon battles. It was very difficult to beat her Chu with Eevee. The little mouse in his eyes, felt a lot more fast and stronger than usual. He knew that much... But the commands that Yellow gives out were/or felt out of place and purposely guiding the Electric mouse to received damage. Also add in the effect that, it took a lot of different blows from Eevee. A Tackle, Quick Attack, Swift. They all dealt what felt no damage to the Pokemon?
"Could? Could her being a viridian child have something to do with that?" he thought to himself. If that was the case and truth behind the sudden strength the mouse gave, made him nod to himself. Of course, seeing the drawback it had on the girl. Makes you very worried for how much energy gets put into the Pokemon and how draining it be for the trainer...Still starring at her, with worry eyes. If someone or in this case someone like Team Rocket. Ever figure out about this kind of power...Could easily take advantage over the girl and capture her to make her do battle. But of course...Yellow would rather lay down her life, then helping them for any evil deeds.
Shaking his head from feeling another sneeze coming out… He looked over to Shadow with one eye close and the other half open. The teen they met outside of Mt.Moon and who help them out to save the Golem and Geodudes, from trainers that constantly went and fought back against them. Or, from Cassidy and Billy...Which Robert suddenly thought he heard someone shouting.
Along with a giant loud thud, causing all three trainers to looked behind them and back to each other. Shrugging their shoulders and continue on with their walks. Robert getting his thoughts back into subject.
Shadow is definatly a mystery between the two. He saved them from Robert accendently taking chances with Mankeys. At the same time, rile them all up and went after the boy and girl through the route. Even though Yellow would've been safe and sound, since their main target and anguish to take out on was Robert.
He join the two through their journey, saying that the more the merrier. Robert couldn't agree any more with that fact. While also glad, that they had someone with them who had more experience than they do. Though, Shadow never really showed his full Pokemon team, only Houndoom mostly. But hey! Why should he complain? If Shadow didn't want to show his team then that’s his choice.
But Robert couldn't help but be curious of what kind of Pokemon he haves. After time through their journey, Robert also asked Shadow, during the time they had at the amusement park. Of what goal Shadow haves for his journey. Surprising the boy by saying, he doesn't have one. Except enjoy what life brings to him. Then saying how right now...His goal is to see how Robert and Yellow's journey will turn out. Along what will they be like once their done, this made Robert smiled on the inside and couldn't help but chuckle at that.
But...Then came the question that was never asked to him. Shadow asked him, what will be his goal for his travels. Robert was about to say, to prove everyone in Pallet Town that he wasn't his brothers shadow. Caused the older boy to glare at him and shove him a bit against a nearby wall. Explaining to him to never have that kind of goal nor, ever let that kind of thing make you blind to the things around you.
This caused Robert to stare at the older teen and wonder why he told him this. After some time leaving the amuzement park and getting time to think things through...Is what led to all these questions of life goal and stuff. Green wanting to be a Pokemon doctor...Red wanting to see every kind of Pokemon. Blue wanting to be a gym leader and Pokemon researcher like his grandfather... Yellow wanting to open up a fishing shop with her grandfather…
For what him and Danny have...Nothing. No goals, no real reason why their on this journey. Originally Robert's normal goal was to beat and meet the elite four...But even then, that will fall under Shadow radar as being blind.
"Robert! ROBERT!" Yellow shouted. Causing the boy to quickly whip his head in her direction, seeing her glared at him and making him lean his head back a bit, blinked his eyes. "You zone out there...What’s wrong?" She asked, at the same time giving him a warm wet cloth to put over his forehead.
Accepting the cloth and resting it on his forehead. He let out a sigh and shook his head, "It's nothing Yellow. Just have a lot of thoughts going through my head...That and a little angry for my Pokemon sending me into the lake last night"
He half chuckled. Taking a quick glance at his pokeball's , he then back up from Yellow glareing eyes, seeing the girl letting out a sigh and face forward. Looking at the trees and bushes that were all around them, that seem to be threatening to cover the brown like dirt road they were walking on. With mountain tops and hill's showing in the horizon... Made Yellow and Robert to lower their heads down and let out a defeated sigh. Causing Shadow to let out a few snickers, remembering what the two went through in Mt.Moon.
"Hey you two...It’s nothing like Mt.Moon ok? That there is called 'Rock Tunnel' ", he explain. Informing the two that they were lucky to have some electric type Pokemon with them... Saying how dark and pitch black the caves were. Caused Yellow to start shaking and pale at the thought, her face slowly turning blue at the thought of, being in nothing but pitch black and who knows what is crawling in those caves.
Shadow and Robert face falter a bit, worry about the girl's mental state. Since Robert explain to Shadow of, her fears to enter anything or everything that had no lights. Causes the girl to panic and scream. Even if you were to pay her a million poke'dollars! She will not budge and hang on tightly to anything she could get her hands on.
Before Robert could calm Yellow down, they all heard rustling in the bushes and made all three of them, to stop in their place and stood still. Waiting for whatever it was to come out. Robert eyes and smile grew tens fold at the sight they all saw!
"It's a Bulbasaur!!" He shouted, causing the small grass type to look over at him and suddenly went into shaking in fear. Slowly backing away a bit from the humans...It remembered the stories that Venasaur told the little ones in the meadows. That humans are very dangerous creatures/or somewhat weird creatures. That will capture pokemon and train them. Or, order them to do their own selfish greed and evil doings. With making the pokemon they capture to do their every bidding.
Starring at the boy in fear and somewhat curiosity... The aura he was giving out was indeed strange but...Also made the Bulbasaur excited for some reason? It couldn't understand what that human was doing. But figure he was going to capture her and make her do everything he commanded.
"Bulb...Bulba saur...", she tried to tell them not to battle. But remember that Human haves no way in knowing, how to speak in Pokemon language. Looking over at the two that was with him, they showed a different response. That of confusion and, what it was doing here in the open?
Yellow knowing that talking to Robert will be impossible right now, walk towards Shadow and whisper to him. "What do you think of this Shadow? Strikes you odd doesn't it..." she asked with confusion written all over her face.
The boy just raised a hand up to his cheek and lightly scratched it. Pondering the same thing what Yellow was thinking, looking over to Robert though, it was like the boy had found something wonderful and amazing in a birthday present. In turn made Shadow let out a small chuckle. Bulbasaurs are very, very rare indeed. If spotting one like this? is like one out of anything in the entire world. Chances to that are to none of finding one in your life.
Finally responding to Yellow’s question. He shrugged his shoulders and shook his head. "I have to agree, come on Rober-"
Before he could finish, Robert spun on his heels and shouted. "No way I am not letting this one get out of my sights!" He exclaim. Making the two widen their eyes at this and in shock too. Then all of the sudden, Yellow face palm herself and let out a grunt.
"Right, I forgot! Robert was originally going to choose Bulbasaur for his starter...Wait?" She said and then suddenly looked up in thought. This also led Shadow in confusion also...WHY didn't he start with Bulbasaur?! Matter of factly what strike odd for Shadow was...How the heck did he start out with an Eevee?
Before they could ponder any longer or linger at the thought. Robert already grab out a Pokeball. That caused Bulbasaur to widen her eyes and panic. Thinking this was it...It's going to be capture and be rid of any free will. "GO, Pikachu!" Robert shouted and thrust the pokeball forward. Making Shadow and Yellow to lower one eye and question the choice of Pokemon.
The mouse Pokemon burst out of the ball and landed onto the ground, facing towards the Bulbasaur. Who blinked her eyes and was surprised by this turn of event. "He wanted to battle me, before capturing me?" It thought to itself. This human definitely strike out to be an odd one. But then again Pokemon gain experiences by battleing with...The humans! This human isn't one of those slave drivers. This one is considering too be under Venasaur's assumption of. "Battlers", that help pokemon they capture and raise them self to grow big and strong.
Although, the Venasaur lost all trust to humans. After it's trainer abandon it as a Bulbasaur...But this human here feels different. His aura around him and his scent was screaming excitement and anxiety. One little problem though...SHE CAN'T FIGHT!
Bulbasaur suddenly widen her eyes and quickly jump out of the way, from Pikachu's thunder shock. Dodging and weaving between each tree, trying her best not to get shock or paralyze from the mouse Pokemon.
"Pretty fast there Bulbasaur! Alright then! Pikachu use quick attack!" Robert shouted and thrust his arm forward with a smile. In turn Pikachu nodded and chase after the grass type Pokemon. Hopping up and landing back on the ground. Darted forward with incredible speed and with a white line trail following behind it!
The Bulbasaur looked behind herself and saw the mouse pokemon. Coming to her at full speed, she knew that this was going to hurt and if she doesn't do something right now. It could be over for her. Looking back forward, a tree was standing in her way and made her run around it. Almost crashing into it, if she didn't see it coming...
Too bad the same can't be told for Pikachu. Who ram itself right into the bark and roll backwards from the collision. Causing Robert and the others to wince at that and look on with worry faces. The mouse pokemon shook its head and blink its eyes. Looking left and right, wondering where the Bulbasaur was...Before it could get a chance to stand up. Pikachu was sent flying from being tackle by the grass type Pokemon. Causing it to fall back down to the ground, but didn't receive a lot of damage from the attack luckily. Standing back up and once again shook its head. Look towards the Bulbasaur.
Whom just rubbed the side of its head and took a few steps back and went into a full fledge run again. "AH! Pikachu follow it! I will be right behind you!" Robert shouted to the mouse Pokemon, who nodded and went after Bulbasaur. Sensing the excitement the trainer was giving. Pikachu knew he wants to try and catch it and add it to their team. In, turn made Pikachu very happy. Since adding a grass type to the team...It would be a lot easier to take down Rock type Pokemon.
Robert who was running right after them in a very unbalance way, feeling his body getting a bit weak and his fever reaching a little higher… But shook his head to clear his thoughts...He will not let this Bulbasaur disappear from him! He will try and capture it if possible! Hearing that Shadow and Yellow were following right behind him, trying to catch up with the boy.
Who manage to catch up with the Pikachu and Bulbasaur. Seeing the two staring each other down in a open field with the wind blowing softly across the land. Making the grass they were standing to become black outlines, from the gentle breeze that blew by.
Standing couple feet from Pikachu...Robert was sweating and breathing very heavily, having trouble focusing his vision and keeping his breathing steady. Seeing how his field of vision will some time, go dark and back to normal every few seconds. He knew he should've not gotten aqll excited, knowing full well of the cold he haves.
Seeing the Bulbasaur blinking and just staring at the two. Along with Yellow and Shadow finally arriving and panting from the loss of air. That and, felt like they ran a marathon! Making them wonder how the heck Robert was able to run this far, without tiring out or collapsing.
"Robert...Can you make this quick? You are not feeling well and I bet that run. You probably made it a lot worse for you!" Exclaim Yellow. Who had her hands on her knees, letting out slow breath of air.
"She's right Robert. You shouldn't be running around with that cold of yours.", pique in Shadow. Seeing the boy's response to them was a very tired and out of breath look. Nodded and stare back to the Bulbasaur...Who was still standing there and curiously watching the human’s converse between each other.
"Bulbasaur, saur!" she barked out to Pikachu. In turn, making the mouse Pokemon tilt its head and stare at Robert. Shock evident in the mouse pokemon eyes, seeing how bad in shape Robert was in and started to get worry for the trainer. Thankfully, the Bulbasaur inform Pikachu of the status its trainer was in and turn to thank the Pokemon. Who nodded back and watch the mouse pokemon run back to Robert.
Causing the other two humans to panic when he fell to the floor on all fours, made Bulbasaur grimaced at the sight, seeing how everyone was worried and trying to calm down the boy...Gulping and taking a chance, she slowly trotted up to the boy and pulled out one vine from the bulb. Resting it against his fore head and, whip it back feeling how terribly hot he felt. Barking at the others and trying to tell them about the fever that it was bad.
Luckily the blonde hair human look to the Bulbasaur and did as she was told. Letting out a gasp, her and Shadow both forced Robert to lay down. Seeing the sweat and heavy breathing he was giving out. Along with fits of coughing now and then, Bulbasaur couldn't bared to see the human in this condition...Retro respect, all he wanted to do was battle her and see if he would be success full in capturing. But! What surprised the grass type Pokemon.
From the human boy, who finally caught up with his electric type partner...Had a small conversation between the other two humans, saying that if the capture failed. Then he will leave the Bulbasaur alone. Shocked, no, more of surprised that he said he will leave her alone!
"Bulbasaur! Bulba!" She barked out to Pikachu, telling it to follow her to the forest while informing the mouse Pokemon. That there were herbs that could help cool down the trainer's temperature in which, Pikachu nodded and followed the grass type to the forest. Letting Yellow and Shadow there to take care of its trainer for now... So it can come back with the said herbs that Bulbasaur inform Pikachu.
Yellow and Shadow was doing everything they could to keep the boy cool down, by having Pidgeyotto, Butterfree and Beautifly to softly flap their wings to blow small gust of winds to the boy. All of them, having a very sad looks on their faces. Sometimes, Butterfree and Pidgeyotto will slightly nudge their beak or little claw up against the boy. Seeing if he was breathing and still moving, making Yellow and Shadow to show small smiles at the gestures these Pokemon were giving.
"Wow...I never see, such bonds with Pokemon and Trainer before", Shadow said, sitting down indian style and watch everything that was occur around them. He felt bad for not stopping the boy last night and, fully knew what the boy was doing that night. Only if he stopped the boy from doing that training last night, he wouldn't be feeling like this right now.
"It's not your fault..." Yellow suddenly spoke up. Laying down a cold cloth on Robert's forehead, making Shadow to look at Yellow with a surprised look… "We both knew that if we would've stop Robert. He would just continue with it either way..." She solemnly said. Trying hard too not let her emotions get the best of her. In turn, Shadow can see that through her eyes and decided to change the subject.
"Your right and besides...He would've turn a 180 and lecture us instead", he chuckle out loud. Causing Yellow to give a slight giggle and focus back on the task they were doing. "Plus...We do need to figure out why he started with an Eevee and not your regular starter Pokemon?" he question. Making Yellow nod in agreement and then they both looked down, seeing the boy shuffle a bit and open his eyes up to the others.
"Oh...Hey guys...Did I caught Bulbasaur?" he asked, causing the two to smile and shook their heads. Explaining, to him that he passed out… before getting the chance to throw the Pokeball. While, also informing him that Bulbasaur and Pikachu went out to look for something to make him feel better. "Huh. Any way" He started asking, while letting out a few coughs. "As for why I started out with Eevee you two...I found out, that my mom was going to give him to me on my eleventh birthday. For when I started my Pokemon journey", he explained. Causing the two too widen their eyes and nodded in understanding.
Now, that made sense with the choice of Pokemon and knowing that his birthday was a month away before he started. His mom probably figured to give him the early birthday present right away and instead of waiting for the day to come. Now the only question that was linguring in Shadow's head...Why make Robert start out late?
Hearing Pikachu and Bulbasaur calling out to them… They all turn their heads and faced the direction the noises were coming from. Seeing that both Pikachu and Bulbasaur, were carrying different kind of herbs that will make good medicine for the boy. The bug and bird Pokemon chirp and chatter out in glee. Making Yellow happy, figuring that the pokemon knew that, the herbs that Pikachu and Bulbasaur found were the right ones.
Little off in the distance and away from the trainers stood Venasaur...Watching the scene played out and carefully keeping an eye on the trainers. While two humans stood next to him.
"As you can see Venasaur...They are tricking the little Bulbasaur into helping. While waiting the right time and chance, to capture it and take it away", explained a man with light blue hair. While a woman with blonde pigtails added in.
"Then once that is done, they will then use the Bulbasaur to lead them. Towards your meadow and capture every grass types that are sleeping and residing." She chimed, making the big plant Pokemon to let out a growl and harden its glare towards the trainers. It decided that it will wait till tomorrow, seeing how fighting the humans right now. Wouldn't be fair and put up not much of a challenge. Venasaur is one for getting mad at trainers...But the one thing it will never do and that would be not attacking a wounded enemy. That will be dishonorable for its code and ways of battling others in a pokemon battle. That is one thing its trainer taught the Venasaur, before abandoning it into the wilds.
The next morning...
Bulbasaur woken up early in the morning and slowly scan around the area she was sleeping at. While feeling something warm and calm next to her caused her to whip her head to the left. Seeing how it was have somehow, slept next to the boy with the Pikachu and other Pokemon that was with them. She remembered the conversation last night she had with Pikachu. Asking and being curious about the boy that tried to capture her yesterday.
She was amazed at the things that this human or, Robert that Pikachu, Butterfree explain to her. Went to the extent to stop and help out any pokemon that come a cross too, along with taking really good care of them and helping them out with their weak spots and openings that they can't really protect. At the same time whenever they take breaks to rest up, he will let them out of their pokeballs and allow them to have some fun and enjoy themself.
But what really made Bulbasaur happy was that he wouldn't capture any Pokemon that didn't feel like getting capture or, have family members around. This info here made Bulbasaur take a diffrent look at the boy and started to get wandering thoughts of actually wanting to join him on this quest of his. Looking around a bit more, she notcie that the taller Human wasn't around and figure he was off doing something.
She then looked over to Yellow, whom was sprawl out on the grass without a care in the world. Remembering how close and careing she was with Robert, made Bulbasaur wonder if they were close friends.
Before she could think any more on the subject, she started hearing whistling and quickly shoved Robert oout the way. While at the same time went flying with the boy, after a solar beam attack crashed in between him and Yellow. Alerting everyone and sending them flying.
After that was over, everyone all groan and looked where the attack came from. Getting a gasp from everyone and surprised to see who their attacker was a green creature, with a huge like flower on the back of it. That looked a little taller than the pokemon it was sitting on. It’s red eyes glared at the trainers and even the small Bulbasaur. Who was surprised that Venasaur even attacked them!
"Bulba! Bulbasaur!", She called out, trying to reason with the Venasaur that what it was doing is wrong, making the plant Pokemon to glare even harder and started charging another Solar Beam attacked.
Pidgeyotto and the bug Pokemon got a good distance from their trainers and blew them hard as they could with their gust attack. Making them dodge yet another solar beam attack. This just ticked off Venasaur even more! Shaking it's body and making shuffling noises from its roots, fired off multiple and many razor leaf attacks at the flying Pokemon who were dodging and swerving from the oncoming attacks.
Pikachu was promptly standing infront of Robert, along with Yellow. Seeing how the herbs they used last night caused Robert to fall asleep with nothing disturbing him. Is still in full effect, considering Robert have not woken up yet.
"Where is Shadow?!" Yellow bellow out to Pikachu and Bulbasaur, in which the two just reply with a shrug of their shoulders and stare back at the fully evolve stage Pokemon.
All of the grass type Pokemon was all in a panic and running away from multiple and different nets that was being fired off from two people with rocket like bazookas over their shoulders.
"Isn’t this great Bob?! Easy catch and easy money! Especially, after tricking that Venasaur into attacking those kids" Cassidy said out loud, laughing and fired off rapid succession of nets from the bazooka.
"For crying out loud, I am so changing my name after this!" Bob said. "BUTCH, BUTCH!" Butch cried out loud. Just ignoring Cassidy and continue on with their capture spree. Then they both felt ominous feeling behind them and slowly turn their pale and shaking heads towards the direction and let out wails and screams.
Then all you hear was a Charizard like roar and Team Rocket blasting off from an explosion. Walking out from the bushes and smirking at how easy it was, to take care of them this time around. Was Shadow, whom was petting his Charizard.
"Good job! Now let’s free the Bulbasaurs and Ivysaurs!" He announced, in turn returning his fire type Pokemon and headed down to the wild Pokemon and freeing them one by one. But something was off about this...Venasaur wasn't anywhere near by...Which means. He then quickly whip his body around and heard explosions from a distance.
"Crap! Venasaur must be attacking Robert and Yellow. Not good..." he said to himself and then turned to the other grass Pokemon. "Listen! Your leader is attacking my friend, by getting trick by Cassidy and Bobby! I need your help to calm Venasaur down!" He asked to the others, which they all looked at each other and back to the boy. Nodding in agreement and followed the teen back to the others and where Venasaur is making more explosions from attacking. "Hang on guys...Just a bit longer!"
The battle that was going on with Venasaur, was coming close to an end, since Yellow had to command and protect Robert at the same time was starting to get a little nerve wrecking. "Pidgyotto try blinding Venasaur with sand attack!" Yellow commanded and watch Pidgeyotto fly down low enough to the ground. Started to build up powerful winds, although got interrupted by Venasaur using vine whip on the bird Pokemon and wrap its vines around it and threw it hard into the ground.
Before anyone could respond, it then more vines from Venasaur shot out and coiled Yellow and all of their Pokemon. Including Robert and started squeezing the life out of them. "Ah! Venasaur! Stop" Yellow grunted out in pain. Feeling that her lungs were getting crushed badly, in the pressure from the vines.
Venasaur just glared harder at the two Humans it had in its grasp. How dare these humans try to capture its kind while trying to use them for their own bidding! Taking a glance at Yellow, slowly and surely to make sure the vine around her will crush her frame. It then looked over to the boy and was about to squeeze his life too. Till the Bulbasaur from earlier used her own Vine whips, that she somehow learn during the chase and slight battle she had with Pikachu.
Knocked both Yellow and Robert free from Venasaurs grip and caught them and sat them down gently on the ground. After that, she then got between Venasaur between the humans and the other Pokemon that were protecting their trainers.
"Venasaur", the giant Pokemon shouted, causing the Bulbasaur to wince a bit. But stood its ground and started to explain everything to the big guy. Telling it how she woken up in the middle of the night and started chasing after a Illumise through the meadows. Without paying attention to where it was going, it leapt off a hill top and roll down the mountain, right into the forest below.
Then explained how she met up with the humans and their pokemon. Telling Venasaur how the boy was giving off a very exciting aura about him, along with eagerness. That's when the other Pokemon started filling in things for Bulbasaur, seeing the looks Venasaur was giving and slightly raising its eyes a bit. Starring at the humans with the blonde hair one keeping Robert close to her and checking over his conditions…
That is when, Bulbasaur explain to Venasaur that the boy. Caught a very bad illness that was very contagious to others and asked for it to give one of its, bulbs tree sap. For Robert to drink and eat the sap in order to cure that fever of his… Venasaur looking down in thought and shifting it's red eyes from left to right. Started to complement itself into helping then heard cries from the other grass Pokemon and faced up towards the mountain top. Where Shadow and the rest of the group were staring down at!
"Please listen to that Bulbasaur Venasaur! It is telling the truth!" Shadow yelled, getting more calls from the others and explaining what happen and how Shadow saved every one's life from Team Rocket.
Closing its eyes and sighing outloud. Just couldn't help but just smile at all of this. Bringing out a vine from its bulb, it thwacks the plant like bark a bit and yellow looking gel started to seep out. Wiping its vine over the sap and moving it towards Yellow, who happily smiled and brought out a bowl for Venasaur to put it in and started to mix the contents with the herbs.
Venasaur then looked towards the small Bulbasaur and the bulbasaur stared back to the Venasaur. While feeling the evolutions vines patting the Bulbasaurs head and told her if she ever wanted to go with the humans. Then she haves all permission to do that…
This made Bulbasaur very happy and nudged its head against Venasaurs cheek, thanking it for letting it go with the trainers and watch Venasaur leave with the others.
Shadow coming towards them and chuckling a bit, lean down and grab one of Robert's Pokeball's and looked towards the Bulbasaur. "Well Bulbasa-"
"No...I want to catch it", announced Robert. Who was slowly and weakly getting up and received the pokeball from Shadow and looked at the plant type Pokemon with a smile and move the ball forward. "Welcome to the team Bulbasaur...Or should I say...Saurian", he finished while giving a nickname to the newly caught Pokemon. Who happily bark its name and tap up against the Pokeball and went inside it.
"That's very good Robert", spoke up Shadow. Smiling down at the pale boy, who smiled back up and then got forced back down to the ground by Yellow with a grunt.
"Yeah, yeah...NOW you really need to sleep. You are still a little weak from all that excitement!" Yellow proclaim. Letting out short of breaths...Trying to regain and stretch her body from being squeezed in Venasaurs vines, at the same time. Handing over the sap to Robert and telling him to eat it. Once that the bowl was handed to the boy, Yellow stare up to Shadow and had one question in mind to asked. While Robert gag and making faces from the taste of the saps taste and, shiver from not tasting anything like this before.
"Hey Shadow?" She asked, in turn making the boy stared down at her with blinking eyes. "I know we should've asked you this when we first met...But what made you decided on to start your Pokemon Journey?" While bringing her legs up to her chest and, starring at the boy along with Robert… Who put down the bowl, letting out small grunts and hiss from the taste of the sap and shook his head to focus on the boy too.
"Well..." he started while sitting down with the others. Seeing Robert's Pokemon all gather around him. "It probably started when I was out camping with my family in Johto..."

The Kanto Story: Robert armas adventures: Chapter 18 on its way.
Unova journey:Robert arma, Reborn of the white knight! Chapter 10 and 11 in the works
Phew 18 Chapters down lol. With this kind of pace will probably have 23 chapters up at the end of Summer vacation XD Enjoy!
Chapter 18: How Shadow Began
There in the Johto camping grounds is where family and friends all go out to sleep outside with the wild life. Along with their children and Pokemon; that will keep them safe from any harm or danger that will come their way, even from wild Pokemon that tend to scurry their way into their camping tents.
In which; some Pokemon tend to do that out of curiosity or, from being too cold from the colder nights. Most Pokemon that do enter campers tents will either be, Teddiursa, Caterpie's or; small Sentrets. More of the bigger Pokemon tend to get attracted by the campfire and uses them to keep them self’s warm near the fire. So if you see a big Pokemon in the morning huddling near the fire. We highly recommend to not disturbing them with any startle movements!
In turn what the sign is written in. A young boy about to turn 10 years old this year; is happily reading over the camp signs with two of his parents Pokemon, that are really close friends to him and; very protective of him like their parents. The white fur with a smudge of orange on the tip of its nine tails...Well name is Ninetails! Is wagging her tails slowly up and down tilting her head a bit trying to decipher or at least try to read human writing. On the other side of the boy;
Is a big and loyal dog like Pokemon name Arcainine; who belongs to the little boy's father. Arcainine and Ninetails are both fire type Pokemon in turn; are weak against rock, ground and Water type Pokemon.
The young boy who is accompanying by the two Pokemon is Shadow; he went on this camping trip with his parents. Hoping to begin his Pokemon journey early this year in Johto since; he heard that Professor Elm was the head/lead scientist to give out starter Pokemon to children at the age of ten. And since his birthday is only a couple weeks away; what better time to start learning about Pokemon than on a field trip?
Shadow being a young boy is into as you could guess; Pokemon and anything that had to do with certain fire type Pokemon. Since his mom and dad specialize in Fire type Pokemon; while the dad sometimes try his best to rotate his team in comprehend against any weakness...
Shadow outfit is of a plain black long sleeve shirt, with flames on both sides of his shirt. Along with red sweat pants. He looked towards Arcainine and Ninetails; beaming a smile towards the two Pokemon with happiness!
"Shadow come on! We're about to set up the tents!" his mother shouted towards him.
"Okay mom let's go you two", Shadow said excitedly; making the two pokemon bark out in response to him and, follow him back to the campsite where his parents and their trainers were waiting for them to help out with the tents.
It took them couple of hours to get everything all up and in place for them to sleep in; for when nightfall comes. But just in case...They also brought a trailer along for those horrible stormy nights that seems to creep up every now and then in Johto...It causes a lot of problems for campers and even families! Especially; with reports of children going missing or being kidnapped without any one to notice it. This thought in itself; scared Shadows parents badly...They were very against of coming on this trip but, have promise to their son that they would go. Since it is going to be his birthday in a couple weeks...
Now speaking of Shadow? He was out on a walk on the trail road that suggested campers to take. Just in case any wild Pokemon were to attack them for being disturb or stepping in their territory. In this case will cause them to go on a rampage and attack anyone who dares to cross that line.
Although...Can't say the same about Shadow in his adventurous curiosity to take charge and; walk off the normal trail and walk deep within the forest to find Pokemon that were rare to see on the normal trails. Though he didn't bring Arcainine or Ninetails with him for this crazy stunt that he was doing… Instead found some Pichu's playing around on the fields, trying to shock each other in what seems to be a game of tag? Upon spotting Shadow the three of them froze in place and; just stare at each other for a few minutes...Before the two electric mice Pokemon tackle him down to the ground and; started tickling the poor kid into submission!
Then Pichu's and Shadow started playing together in games of hide and seek, tag and chasing each other around while the Pichu's will suddenly climb up a tree. Taunting Shadow by slapping their behinds, causing the boy to puff out his cheeks in annoyance in turn; making him try to climb the tree to only fail and fall back down to the ground. Groaning and wincing in pain, he open up one eye then blink both of them open in surprise. Seeing a Aipom balancing on one tail ooking at him in laughter. Finding it funny how the poor kid couldn't climb half way up the tree...
Then; Aipom suddenly got thunder shock by the two Pichu's who didn't like how it was laughing at their friends distress, which caused Aipom to go into a fit and chased the two Pichu's away. While Shadow followed in hoping to calm down the Pokemon's so they wouldn't attack or; hurt each other in the fray of the fight. But this was a bad thing on his side; he was going deeper and deeper in the forest!
Hours have gone pretty fast and a storm started to show itself. This made Shadow's parents frantic as they ask the camp ranger, if he have seen where Shadow gone. In turn, informing them that he went on the trail roads...But; started calling out to all camp rangers that a little boy went missing during his walk in the trails. Alerting this to everyone that was there, Ninetails and Arcainine took this opportunity to go and, search for the little boy.
Said little boy was running through the forest in fear and worried. For one, he didn't realize how far out he went in the forest. Chasing the Aipom and Pichu's towards a very dangerous spider nest that Aridos made...Freeing the pokemon from the nest and the others, by breaking the web with a stick longer than himself; manage to break free all the pokemon. Who all ran away from him and the sight; Even the pokemon from earlier ran away and, left the boy there to defend himself! After hearing what sound like snapping of twigs; he slowly turn his head around and fell on the ground. Franticly crawling away from; the massive spider that had a pink color body, with yellow like legs and horns sticking out from behind with black stripes here and there.
It tried to get Shadow with string shot but miss the boy after he rolled out of the way and; started running for his life. Hearing the giant Pokemon following him and chasing him down through the forest path way. Firing off multiple strings shot's to capture its prey that broke its nest and; probably what would've been food for tonight. Luckily for Shadow though; the string shots will miss and land on a tree that he ran by or, ducking at the right time. He couldn't/wouldn't dare to look behind him.
He is afraid of spiders so badly after experience a different Aridos. That mistaking his hat for being a Spinarak whom evolves into Aridos! The mistake of identity for it being its baby caused Shadow to scream and cry out to his parents. After getting roughly pulled up to the spider nest and; nestle with the other Spinarak who just cuddle with what seem to be their lost siblings; Scarring and scaring the poor boy for life after finally getting rescued by his parents and; Aridos trying to keep him only to realize that the missing Spinarak was up on the branch upside down. Testing out its new string shot ability smiling by swinging left and right happily…
Made everyone there to sweat drop and Aridos to clatter it's fangs in a bashful manner saying sorry to the family...
But now this isn't that reason any more for Aridos to chase him! He went and destroy its nest and, free its dinner for tonight. But; to be perfectly honest Shadow thought he was doing the right thing. Feeling the cold harsh winds and rain drops that were pounding into him and; Aridos! He couldn't see what is in front of him or, what was behind him. Of course he knew that Aridos was there; now firing off Sludge bomb to the boy. Scarring him even more after hearing how close the explosions were...Crying and breathing harshly from running so much; that he is now regretting of not bringing Arcainine or Ninetails with him to protect the boy from the spider.
He suddenly came to a halt and flailed his arms wildly; to even out his balance. In front of him was a; raging river that threaten to pull anyone in it and sweep them away forever. Turning around franticly; feeling the strains of water going down his face. Saw the mighty spider leaping towards him with intent to harm the boy. But failed from getting a full blast of Fire blast attack to work...
Turning around to see where it came from; Shadow couldn't help but smile at his parent's Pokemon impeccable timing! They manage to defend him by using Fire blast to blow the bug Pokemon away from him, but at last...It wasn't strong enough and, their attacks were weaken from the heavy rain storm. Getting back up from a surprised attack by both Ninetails and Arcainine's fire blast attack; it then quickly shot out Sludge bomb towards the two fire type Pokemon. But failed when they jump away from the attack and return the favor by shooting out a flamethrower attack to the spider Pokemon! Though; they all panic by the ditch effort from the spider, by shooting sludge bomb in front of Shadow. Thus the explosion knocked him into the rapid waters and swept him away. Making Ninetails and Arcainine to howl out to the boy and; gave chase!
Shadow couldn't see or couldn't keep his body from sinking then rising back up in the river. His vision kept seeing the grey clouds of the sky, to the greyish color of underwater. He felt like he would drown in the water if he didn't do something quick. Quickly grabbing on to a floating log that somehow got swept in the rapid rivers! He pulled half his body up on the log; letting out coughing fits. Riding along the log thinking it would be safer that way but panic. To see that there was a water fall at the end of the river.
"HELP SOMEONE ANYONE HELP ME!" He cried out. But knew that it was over and; with no one around he couldn't be save. Sure he saw Arcainine and Ninetails running along the river bend but what could they do? Their fire type Pokemon in term being afraid of any type of water. Including rapids like these. Everything was going really slow for him, from the river's crashing waves, to his parent's Pokemon calling and howling out, and feeling something bite down onto his shirt...Wait?
He suddenly felt weightless as if something came to pull him out; seeing the ground below him with the Pokemon looking up in shock and surprise evident on their faces. Turning his head up to see what rescue him; couldn't make out the details to clearly after all being chase down the forest by a spider was tiring and; getting blasted into the river bend along by; trying to breath and pull himself out of the water tired out the poor kid. But one thing he did last seen before he passed out on the ground near the camp sight. Was the Pokemon looking down at him with a purple like star for the nose; with yellow calculating eyes staring down at him then nodded...Seeing how the boy was breathing and feeling well. It's purple mane blowing harshly from the terrifying winds. Yellow body that is cover with black color stripes that rest on the back and, stretches to the sides. Taking a few stomping steps back to let out a high mighty roar with the thunder booming in response; called out to the people around the camp site! Before it could disappear though it turn its head towards the boy...
"Thank you..." Shadow spoke weakly to the Pokemon. In turn the pokemon nodded and leapt away...Never to be seen again.
"And that my two young trainers how I met the legendary Pokemon Raikou", Shadow said bowing down to Yellow and Robert. Robert feeling a little better after being up close to the made shift campfire with Yellow huddle her knees up to her chin with her eyes wide from the story Shadow just told. While Robert; keeping the sleeping bag over his head; shock evident in his eyes that Shadow met a legendary Pokemon who rescue him from being swept in the river and; presumably death if he were to fall off the water fall.
"Geeze Shadow...So ever since then you started your journey in hoping to find Raikou?" Yellow asked with a tilt of her head and in response got a nod from him.
"Yup; But never did ran into Raikou after that event though...So it was a bust during my travels. In regards though; they don't call them legendary for nothing." He said; getting a Nod from Yellow. While a slight down look from Robert...
"Legendary Pokemon are hard to find and, nearly impossible to locate..." He thought to himself with a quick image of Mew head-butting him or, taking his hat from him in a playful manner and laughing at the confused look on the boys looked...
"But yeah...Raikou is sort of what got me to get even more excited to start my Pokemon journey", He beamed at the end and paled at the looks Robert and Yellow were giving him. Looks of knowing and deceiving...
"So Shadow...The person who was screaming in the horror ride. That was you wasn't it and not the girls?" Robert asked by wiggling his eye brows to the boy. Who looked down with a blush and shouted a bit at the boy.
"Hey! You try putting up a brave act without being scared!"
"I have at Mt.Moon!" Then Robert quickly closed his mouth shut; earning him glares from Yellow. While Shadow grin like a fool in a gotcha kind of way, making Robert sweat drop and deadpan at the expression. "You trick me to say that didn't you..."
"You’re the one who fell for it oh mighty trainer", Shadow responded with sarcasm in his voice. Then Yellow just slam her hand down on the ground a little bit while wincing at the sudden pain. Looked towards Robert with determination in her eyes…
"Alright Robert SPEAK! What the heck happen between you and Green at Mt.Moon?! She looked shock when I told her you didn't say anything about it" Yellow asked with a low voice; while looking down to the ground. Knowing Robert will probably avoid the question again...But; hearing him let out a defeated sigh, shaking his head left and right.
"Alright, alright...Fair is fair. I kept it long enough and to be honest...It's really starting to eat me alive for not saying anything..." He said letting out a shaky breath, making both Shadow and Yellow focus all attention to him.
"So...I'll be able to finally figure out what exactly happen between Robert and Green...From the way Green kept glaring at Yellow on the S.S.Anne and the amusement park; I was getting worried if she was threaten to do something between their friendship with each other" Shadow thought to himself. Looking down to his right at the slumbering Houndoom with his demon tail curl up a bit with Robert's Pikachu who was using the demon dog like a pillow with Houndoom not minding it at all.
Paying his attention back to Robert he saw that the boy's eyes were shaking a bit. Probably thinking if he should tell the events at Mt.Moon or not; seeing him let out one last breath he looked up to the two of them...
"Well...It's right after probably we split up to do our goals..."
To be continued...
