~FOLLOWING the DRAGON~
The story of Following the Dragon loosely follows the story of Black and White, so if you have not completed those games, this may or may not contain spoilers. Again, the story loosely follows the story of Black and White, so it is not exactly the same. Only a few aspects are based off the games.
[Information Card Coming Soon]
The sun slowly peered through the window and placed itself upon the same pillow on which the amateur Pokemon trainer's head laid. The sun on her closed eyes began to irritate her, causing her to move around, slowly waking up. She stared up at her bare, white ceiling, and stretches her arms above her head, then folds one behind her head and neck. After a few moments of silence and staring at the ceiling, she reaches over to the desk next to her bed, opens a drawer and pulls out a Pokeball with a lightning bolt burned onto the red part.
"Tonitrus," she says, pressing the button on the Pokeball, releasing her spiked yellow Pokemon.
"Jolte!" The Jolteon exclaimed.
"'Morning to you too, Tonitrus..." the trainer mumbled, slowly sitting herself up. "I guess I should get dressed..."
"Jol, Jolte!" The Jolteon ran over to a pile of clothes in the corner of the room and pulls out a black jacket, pulling it over to her trainer.
"Thanks, Tonitrus." The trainer smiled, putting it on over the black tank top she wore to bed. She pretty much passed out asleep the night before, so she was still wearing her dark denim jeans. She slowly walked over to a mirror and brushed her long reddish-brown hair, pulling it back into a pony.
"Corinne!" A man's voice called from downstairs. "Breakfast!" The trainer sighed and walked over to the door in her bedroom.
"Come on, Tonitrus." She said, opening the door and heading downstairs, the Jolteon following close behind. When the trainer made it to the bottom of the stairs, she saw a familiar face sitting at her kitchen table, with her father. "Professor Oak?"
"Hello, Corinne. It's very nice seeing you again." The professor said with a smile.
Yeah, nice seeing you, too..." the trainer mumbled, getting a glass of orange juice from her dad. "Why are you here, exactly? I mean it's a long way to Ecruteak from Pallet Town, couldn't you have called, or emailed?"
"Well, yes, I could have, but this is important, I thought it would be best to meet with you and your father to discuss this." The professor smiled, taking a sip of his coffee that Corinne's father prepared for him.
"What is... this, exactly?" Corinne asked.
"I want to send a trainer to Unova, to record information on the Pokemon residing there, and I want to send you, Corinne." The professor told her.
"What? Unova is... far away, and besides, what would be in it for me?" Corinne asked, drinking some of her juice.
"Corinne," her father sighed, "it would be a nice experience to go to Unova, see new Pokemon, new people, I think it would be good for you..."
"...And besides, Corinne," the professor added, "Unova features two of the best dragon trainers in the world, maybe they could assist you in becoming a dragon trainer, as well?"
Corinne stared at the ground, thinking. Her lifelong dream was to become a dragon trainer, but Clair, Johto's dragon gym leader, refused to let her train dragon Pokemon, despite the champion, Lance's, requests.
"If I can have a dragon by the time I come home, I'll do it." Corinne said.
"I thought you would say that," the professor laughed, "now, I already have boat tickets for you," the professor handed out a ticket for Corinne to accept, "you'll leave from Olivine at six tonight."
"Tonight? That's awfully soon, professor." Corinne's father said,
"Sounds good," Corinne said, accepting the ticket. "I'll go pack."
"Corinne," her father said, but it was too late, she already was in her room.
"I'm sorry I didn't inform you of the time sooner," the professor exclaimed, "professor Juniper asked that I send the trainer soon. And by soon... I mean so he or she would be there by the weekend..."
"I understand." Her father said, staring out the window.
"Jolte!" The little Pokemon yelped, as she dug things out of the pile of clothes to drag over to her trainer.
"I know, I'm kind of excited, too." Corinne sighed, "I hope they can help me get a dragon, Tonitrus." Corinne looked at the poster hanging on her wall. It was of a Dragonite emerging out of the water. She smiled at it slightly and put her necklace on. her necklace had a dragon scale on it. She then shoved all of the clothes Tonitrus dragged over into her backpack, and her notebook and pen, which were both dark gray with a black impression of a Dragonite on them. She grabbed her black Poke Gear and shoved it into her pocket, and laid back on her bed, and stared out the window. Tonitrus jumped up on the bed and cuddled up next to her trainer, and they both watched the sky grow cloudy. She and her Pokemon laid there until they saw the clock read five o'clock. By that time, it started to rain.
"It's raining, Tonitrus." She smiled, pulling on her black canvas shoes, laughing at her Pokemon who was jumping in excitement. "Let's go."
"Jolteon!" They both ran downstairs, meeting Corinne's father.
"Be careful." He said, hugging his daughter.
"I will, dad." She smiled.
"It's raining, why don't you have Ignis fly you to Olivine?" He suggested, as Corinne's face grew an angered look.
"Dad, it's raining. If I let Ignis out he'll die. I'll be fine walking." She said, heading towards the door.
"Wait, Corinne," he walked up to her, handing her a box. "Professor Oak said to give this to you." She took the box, opened her backpack and put the box in her backpack.
"I'll open it on the ship." She said, finally opening the door. "Bye, dad." She pulled her hood onto her head, walking out, with Tonitrus right behind.
Corinne closed the door behind her, held one of her backpack's straps with one hand, and held her hood with the other, so it wouldn't blow off. She and Tonitrus then proceeded to leave Ecruteak out of the western exit towards Route 38. By now, it was five fifteen and the rain was pouring down, so Corinne and Tonitrus decided to run.
The two got to the Olivine dock by five forty-seven, thirteen minutes before the boat leaves for Castelia City in Unova. Before Corinne leaves for a new chapter in her life. Before Corinne has the chance to be a dragon trainer, her dream. They got on the ship and into their room. She sat her backpack down at the end of her bed, and Tonitrus jumped on the foot of the bed. Corinne sat down and leaned her head back against the wall as the intercom went off.
"Attention passengers, we will be leaving Olivine City, Johto en route for Castelia City, Unova. We hope you enjoy your ride." Captain Kirk announced, over the intercom.
And thus was the beginning of her journey.
