Due to inactivity, I never got the New Chapter done until..... now. Here it is!
The Journey Through Serenity River
“Umm, excuse me, what’s-your-face?” Trish asked the blue-feathered penguin Pokemon that was dragging her across a grassy plain. She was amazed that the Pokemon could carry her this far, as Eevee were known to be a little bit heavier than Piplup.
“The name’s Mira, remember?” said the Piplup, a little bit confused, as the other Pokemon was one of a very few amount of others who have forgotten what her name was.
“Right, Mira,” Trish corrected herself. “Do you have any idea of where this ‘Serenity River’ is?”
“Oh, yes. Me and my family goes there all the time,” Mira explained. “Actually, it should come into view anytime now.” Sure enough, the two soon came to a ledge. Looking over it, there was a majestic river, which reflected the sky like a mirror. Multiple cattail-like plants stuck out from the sides. A stone path lay beside the river, leading to a marsh-like area.
“We should take the stairs,” Trish suggested, pointing toward the stone staircase to the left of them. But then, Mira’s Piplup instincts told her to kick in those two left feet most Piplup have, and trip. As Mira was still clinging onto the furry, brown, foxlike Pokemon, Trish came tumbling down with her.
One minute, Trish and Mira were looking at the beautiful scenery of Serenity River, the next; they were falling off a ledge, at risk of plunging into it. Fortunately, the mud surrounding the river slowed them down and prevented them from a watery disaster, but they were now in a muddy one.
Trish shook the mud out of her fur. Mira did the same with her feathers. She then took something that was hanging around her neck, and scrubbed the mud off of that. Trish never noticed it before, but now that she looked at it, it was a necklace with a wooden charm. Indented in the round block of wood were three small gems: One that was blue, one that was light pink, and one that was yellow. The gems were all surrounding one larger gem, this one as clear as crystal.
“Hey Mira? Where did you get that necklace?” Trish asked the Piplup once she was done polishing the necklace Trish was referring to.
“You mean this?” Mira said, holding up the peculiar accessory. “My mom gave it to me for my twelfth birthday, which was a bit over 2 years ago. She travels a lot. Anyway, do you know how old you are? I’m fourteen.”
“Well, I’m pretty sure I’m fifteen, so a year older than you?” the Eevee said, thinking a bit before answering. “But enough chitchat. Don’t we have a Pichu to save?”
Mira gasped. “I almost forgot that that was the reason we came!” she exclaimed, before facepalming herself. “Come on, Trish!” And with that, the two new friends followed the stone path into the marsh, with Mira saying, “Just so you, with me, there’s no such thing as ‘Enough Chitchat’.”
The voyage through the River’s marsh went off to a good start, as Trish and Mira found the first two “stairways” fairly easily. But at B3F, a blue water fish Pokemon, with purple feelers on its cheeks, also known as a Wooper, appeared out of nowhere and attacked! Mira sent out a Pound attack, by giving a large slap to the Pokemon. Trish just stood there, rooted to the ground.
“Well, are you going to just stand there, or are you going to attack this Wooper?” Mira exclaimed to the Eevee.
“Attack? What do you mean?” Trish asked back, confused. Mira gave her the “Are you kidding me?” look.
“Never in my life have I seen a Pokemon that didn’t know how to attack,” the Piplup muttered under her breath, and then turned to Trish. “Just, ram your entire body into this Wooper here.”
Trish nodded, and then started to run at full speed, fur blowing against her back. Then, she slammed into the Wooper, causing it to fall onto the ground.
“Congratulations! You used a Tackle Attack!” Mira said, a bit on the sarcastic side. As soon as she said this, however, the Wooper suddenly disappeared in a puff a smoke.
Trish, a bit creeped out by this, stuttered, “W-w-what j-just…”
“Yeah, that happens whenever a Pokemon faints,” Mira explained, knowing exactly what the Eevee was going to say. “But where they go, exactly? That has always been a mystery. No one knows!”
“Well, we should continue on,” Trish pointed out, still a bit bothered by what just happened.
Three Lotad, two Wooper, two Poliwag and one Masquerain later, the two Pokemon reached the missing Pichu. He somehow got tangled up in some cattails.
“Heave!” Mira shouted, as they were pulling on some of the plants. Mira and Trish pulled and pulled, and then there efforts paid off, when the cattails snapped off.
Pichu jumped out toward the girls. “Thank you!” he shouted.
“We have to get you out of here first, though, so don’t thank us yet,” Trish explained to the small child. Pichu nodded, and the two friends led him out of the marsh of Serenity River.
When Trish, Mira, and Pichu got out of the marsh, however, a Pokemon was waiting for them. It was bird Pokemon that had a dark grey head with a music note shape sticking out it. It had colouful body feathers, consisting of yellow, green, and blue. It had a red beak and yellow talons, plus a white ruff of feathers around its neck. It also had a dark grey, metronome-like like tail. It looked a bit old, and Trish imagined that it if was younger, its colours would be more vibrant.
What it said, however, completely baffled Trish.
“You have completed the test with flying colours. Congrats!” He exclaimed with a smile.
AN: It was so easy to describe Chatot for some reason. Once again, please enjoy this chapter! Point out any mistakes I've made.
