I am remaking Pokemon' Unova Chronicle. The old one isn't yet dead, but I didn't like the way I was going and wanted to change up some stuff. However, the first post is exactly the same. So here, second chapter should be up soon.
Chapter 1: Unova Beginning.
-Nuvema Town. 7:30 A.M.-
A young man, approximately 15, was standing in front of a mirror. The room he stood in was a basic bedroom, brown walls, a mid-sized T.V., a bed, a bookcase, a desk and a computer. The man was about average height with brown hair. He was buttoning up his white shirt when a woman’s voice called for him. “Tom get down here.” The woman was his mother, and she had good reason to call Tom downstairs. Today, he would start on his journey through the pokemon world. He zipped up and buttoned his blue jeans and tied his shoes before heading down stairs. At the bottom waited his mom, middle-aged woman with hair like his but longer. She wore a blue shirt and green pants. “Finally.” She said. "Lauren is going to be here any second. Do you have all your stuff straight?”
“Yeah mom.” Tom replied. “Backpack, poke balls, food, clothes, tent, cell phone and money.”
“Good.” His mother said. “Now go get your stuff.” She shooed Tom upstairs. He returned a minute later wearing a backpack and holding a bag that stored his tent. “Good.” She said. “Now we just have to wait for Lauren. Go get some breakfast while we wait.”
“Okay mom.” Tom replied walking to the kitchen. He made a bowl of cereal, but as soon as he grabbed a spoon the doorbell rang. “I got it mom.” He yelled as he walked into the living room and opened the door. On the other side of the doorframe stood his girlfriend, Lauren. She stood as tall as Tom and had her brown upper back-length hair tied into a ponytail. She was straightening out the arm of her white top when Tom opened the door. “Hey Lauren.” He said. “Do you mind if we wait a little longer? There will still be pokemon and I haven’t had breakfast yet.”
“Fine.” Lauren said. This was just like Tom, to put everything off until he has had food. “But hurry up before Steven beats us to picking the pokemon.” She walked in and dropped her backpack down. “Ches.” She yelled. A small, purple cat slunk out from under Tom’s couch. He had two long, pointed fuchsia markings above his green eyes and a pale area around his petite mouth. Two tapered, pale marks sat on the inside of his eyes. He walked up to Lauren on his long legs, licking the white fur on his shoulders when he got to her. “You are the cutest Purrloin ever.” She said petting him. He swung his scythe shaped tail around and purred in happiness. “You almost done Tom?” She yelled.
“Almost!” Tom yelled from the kitchen. After a few seconds he yelled again. “Done. Let me grab my backpack and we can leave.” Tom walked back into the living room and grabbed his backpack. He petted Ches on the cat’s white back before calling to his mom. “Mom! Me and Lauren are heading out now.”
“Take care and be careful.” She yelled from somewhere out of sight. “And make sure to call.”
“I will.” Tom shouted back. “Come on.” He said to Lauren. The couple walked out of the house and into the small town.
Nuvema Town was not very large, but tons of fifteen and sixteen year olds, and some older people but nowhere near as many, were gathered around one building. A large windowed building with a sign reading ‘Professor Juniper’s lab’ sitting out front. The building was, well, a pokemon lab. In it Professor Juniper, the Unova region’s resident starter professor, was handing out one of three pokemon to new trainers. There was Snivy, the snake grass pokemon. Tepig, the fire pig pokemon. Or Oshawott, the sea otter pokemon. Some of the people were leaving to start their journey with their new partner, but most were still waiting in line or registering so that they could get a pokemon.
“Come on.” Lauren said running ahead of Tom. “We registered yesterday and it’s early so we might get a good spot in line.”
“Well wait for me.” Tom said, running to catch up with Lauren.
-Ten Minutes Later-
Tom and Lauren were waiting in line to get to Professor Juniper. “Come on.” Lauren mumbled. They were next in line and she was getting more angry by the second. After a few seconds a young man walked out of Professor Juniper’s office where she was giving out starters. “Finally!” Lauren yelled. “Come on.” She grabbed Tom’s hand and roughly pulled him up and into the professor’s office. Inside the office was a mess. Papers laid everywhere, the floor, the desk, the multiple bookshelves. “Where’s the professor?” Lauren asked.
“Right Here.” A feminine voice said from somewhere to the two’s left.
“Where are you?” Tom asked, looking in the direction the voice came from. Suddenly, a woman popped out of a pile of papers. She was chasing a small grey pokemon. It had a pouch shaped body with a large head and equally large ears with white tips. The woman jumped at the pokemon, but it jumped up and landed on her head, rubbing its long tail on the back of the woman‘s head.
“Need some help?” Tom asked.
“Sure.” The woman said, leaping at the pokemon again. Tom walked up to it from one side, making the pokemon scurry off in the opposite direction. It turned around and shook its tail at Tom, letting Lauren grab it.
“Here.” Lauren said handing the pokemon to the woman. “So professor, why was the Minccino running around your office?”
“She was just playing around.” The woman said. “So, how may I help you two?”
“Well Professor Juniper, we are here to get out starters.” Tom said.
The woman, revealed to be professor Juniper, reached into a pocket on her lab coat and pulled out a poke ball. She tapped it on Minccino, returning the pokemon to its ball. Well then, may I ask what pokemon you want?”
“Snivy.” Lauren said.
“And I would like an Oshawott.” Tom said.
“Okay then.” Professor Juniper said reaching into her other coat pocket, pulling out two poke balls. One with a green mark on it and the other a blue spot. “Here and here.” She handed the ball with the green spot to Lauren and the blue spotted ball to Tom. “Please, let out your pokemon.”
“Go Snivy!” Lauren yelled throwing out the poke ball. Out of the ball came a green, serpentine shape. The pokemon had a pointed face and laid on their stomach, sleeping. “Wake up Snivy.” Lauren said poking the snake pokemon. Snivy yawned as it woke up and stood up to reveal that it had two thin legs and stubby arms. It also revealed its pale, scaly stomach. It had a three pointed leaf at the end of its tail and an orange stripe going up from the tip of its tail to the bottom of its neck, splitting and twirling up into two collar like growths.
“Snivy.” The pokemon said regally, going back to sleep.
“Yeah.” Juniper sighed. “This Snivy tends to sleep a lot, but he is the strongest one we have.”
“I think I can stand it.” Lauren said. “So Tom, lets see that Oshawott.”
“Okay.” Tom said affirmatively. “Go Oshawott!” He threw his poke ball . Out of it came a blue otter. It had a large white head with a red nose and freckles on its cheeks. It scratched its small, dark blue ear with its stubby arms. It stood up on its dark blue feet, swinging its body and hitting papers with its stubby tail.
“Cute.” Lauren said.
“Yeah.” Tom said. “Especially with that shell blade of hers” Tom was referring to the yellow oyster shell that was attached to Oshawott’s chest.
“Yes, she isn’t the best with it though.” The Professor said. “Now then, it was good to meet you two, but please leave. I have other people to deal with.”
“Okay.” Lauren said dragging Tom out of the building, their pokemon followed.
-Another 10 minutes later-
Lauren and Tom stood opposite each other in a large field behind the lab. “Remember.” Lauren said. “No crying when I beat you.”
“I won’t.” Tom retorted. “But you have can’t either.”
“Go Snivy!” Lauren yelled. Snivy walked sleepily into the field.
“Go Oshawott!” Tom howled. Oshawott stepped onto the field.
“Lets see, what moves can Snivy use?” Lauren wondered as she pulled out her Pokedex. "Leer, and Tackle..."
“Oshawott can use Tackle and Tail Whip.” Tom read off of his Pokedex. “You want the first move?” he asked Lauren.
“Sure.” She answered happily. “Snivy, Leer!” she yelled. Snivy yawned and fixed an intimidating glare at Oshawott.
"Tail Whp Oshawott." Tom ordered.
Oshawott jumped an Snivy and squealed "Osha!". Oshawott smacked Snivy with her tail with such force, it knocked him back a few feet.
“Snivy, counter with Leer!” Lauren ordered. Snivy glared at Oshawott again.
“Oshawott, use Tackle!” Oshawott ran at and tackled Snivy to the ground. When Oshawott got up, Snivy was shown to be asleep.
“Well then, I guess you win.” Lauren said to Tom. “Return Snivy.” She held up her pokeball and returned Snivy.
“Guess we better be heading out then.” Tom said returning Oshawott. The couple started walking to the town entrance to start their adventures in the pokemon world.
