Adventure #1... START!}
Astoria. A land with a rumored wealth of magic and mystery, many come here to discover some great secret hidden in the depths of this forested island.
For Hyrem, however, it is simply the setting for the very beginning of his adventure. He took a ferry here, not knowing what the island would be like or even what his first Pokemon was. His father, a retired Pokemon Trainer, simply handed him a Pokeball and a Backpack and told him not to open any of it until he got off the ferry.
Now, as he disembarked from the ferry and set foot on the port located on the east coast of Astoria, he could wait no longer. He found himself the closest empty bench and sat himself down. His Pokeball was attached to his belt, but before he opened it he decided to go through his backpack and see what was inside it first.
That's when he discovered the note his father had stashed inside. The note basically explained to him each of the items in his backpack, including the Pokemon Index, or Pokedex for short, a Coin Case to store money, etc. Also on the note, he was instructed to give his new friend a piece of candy and a spoon, twisted at the handle and at the neck, because they would help him create the essential bond with his Pokemon.
Well, Hyrem thought, it's time! He grabbed the Pokeball from his belt, expanded it, and pressed the button to open it. A flash of white light appeared, jumped right next to him on the bench, and eventually became a small white body with a green cover and red horns on its head. Hyrem chuckled, "You're kinda cute! Now, what kind of Pokemon are you?" He opened up the Pokedex in front of the little Pokemon, and it replied:
Ralts, the Feeling Pokemon. The horns on its head provide a strong power that enables it to sense people's emotions. If the horns capture the warm feelings of people or Pokémon, its body warms up slightly.
"Ralts, huh? Well hi there!" Hyrem did as much as he could to convey positive emotions to the Pokemon next to him, and it responded by looking up to him and said, "Ra?" sounding inquisitive.
Hyrem responded by saying, "It's all right, come closer!" The Feeling Pokemon inched closer and closer to him until it was finally on his lap. Then it looked straight at him, smiled, and said with a soft voice, "Ralts!"
Hyrem chuckled again and said, "Well, I'm Hyrem; nice to meet you! I think we'll be great friends!"
"Ralts!" came the reply as she transmitted a warm color into his mind.
"I'm glad you think that way too! Say, I've got some things for you..." Hyrem unwrapped the Rare Candy and handed it to Ralts. "Here, eat this!"
Ralts took the candy into her hands and took a small bite of it. She smiled as she ate the rest of the candy. Within a couple of minutes, she was done with the candy, and Hyrem took that as a cue to present her with the Twistedspoon. Ralts took the spoon and smiled again as she started twisting the spoon back the other way.
"Wow, that was Confusion just now, wasn't it?"
"Haha, I'm liking you already! The fact that you're so cute helps a lot!" And with that, Hyrem was finally ready to begin. Now, no matter what could possibly come his way, he knew he had a reliable partner to count on. Hyrem took Ralts into his arms, repacked his bag, and started to explore the town.
