The Leaves of Sinnoh Fall Into Place (PG-13)
(written by Jared and I)
The digital clock turned to 8:00 am as it began to make a buzzing noise near Jared’s bed. Jared then rose up all tired and grumpy, and then turned his alarm off and went back to sleep. I mean, it’s 8:00 am, normal people wouldn’t willingly get up this early unless they had to. You can probably tell he’s about to get his first Pokémon, since pretty much every single damn journey story starts off this way. I’m pretty sure the actual animé has done this twice actually.
Anyways Jared then slept until he naturally woke up at about 10:30, as that’s a normal time for a teenager to wake up. Yeah another thing, 10 is a really young age so it’s weird that they get their new Pok’emon then and travel the world by themselves, so in this story you have to be 15 to get a new Pokémon.
CAN I GET TO MY POINT!? Ugh.... so Jared has red hair, blue eyes-yknow what, who the hell cares about what these characters look like. Stop being so lazy and imagine it for yourself, you don’t need me to do all the work for you.
ANYWAYS, Jared then got up and got ready, excited to get his first new Pokémon!
“Bye mom, bye dad! I’m going to go get my first Pokémon and then travel this giant region by myself. I will probably not see you for years and neither you two or I seem to care because that’s apparently normal in the Pokémon world. See ya!” Jared told his parents.
“Bye Jared which is what’s probably going to be our only line in this entire story!” replied Jared’s parents at the same time because do you REALLY need to hear these unimportant characters talk separately. It’ll just be generic crap. Jared then exited his house in Twinleaf because Pokémon journey fic rules dictate that every main character has to start in the same town as the main character in the games.
Anyways, Jared looked around town for about 20 minutes for the Pokémon Lab, until he realized that there is no lab in Twinleaf because Diamond and Pearl decides to be DIFFERENT by not having you start in the same town as the lab, since that matters right?
“Ugh...I forgot, the lab is in Sandgem,” Jared complained to himself. He then exited the town, with no one stopping him due to not having a wild Pokémon since THAT DOESN’T REALISTICALLY HAPPEN AT EVERY SECOND.
After getting the crap beat out of him by many vicious wild Pokémon (he even had to have surgery), Jared finally made it to Sandgem town.
Chapter 1: Early Installment Weirdness
“I’m here to get my first Pokémon, *****es!” shouted Jared as he entered the Sandgem Pokémon lab.
“Hmph, watch your manner young man” said an old guy walking up to Jared.
“Ah, I take it you’re the Sinnoh professor,” responded Jared.
“Yes. The name is Rowan,” responded Professor Rowan.
“Wait, so if all the professor names are based off trees, what the hell is a rowan!? I mean I’ve heard of oak, elm, and birch, but seriously...rowan? I mean why couldn’t they name you Willow or Maple or something. No one has heard of a rowan!” complained Jared.
“It’s better than Juniper,” responded Professor Rowan.
“Okay, there I’ll agree with you. Anyways, another question. Trainers are constantly entering Sinnoh, so how is your lab so empty? I mean wouldn’t here be a giant lineup to get a new starter?” asked Jared.
“What’s with you and questions. Just pick your starter already. You’re wasting everyone’s time,” Rowan sternly said.
“Ugh fine, Turtwig please. Chimchar sucks so I refuse to use that, but I do like Piplup. Turtwig is just cooler,” remarked Jared.
“I never asked for you reasoning. Just take it and please leave,” Rowan stated.
“Alright, fine, you don’t need to be so grumpy,” Jared responded. Rowan then went to his storage device opened it up taking a Pokéball and handed it to Jared.
“Thanks bro,” Jared thanked.
“Please leave,” Rowan coldly stated.
“Nah, I’m gonna wait for another trainer to walk in and take a Pokémon so I can battle him/her and test out my new Pokémon,” Jared explained.
“For the love of god, there are trainers literally situated right outside Sandgem who stand in one place all day and all night and battle new trainers. Go there,” Rowan yelled.
“Nah, I like it here,” Jared stated.
“I should have gone in to PokéTherapy instead of this,” mumbled Rowan, “anyways I hope you’re going to be here for quite awhile. New trainers don’t just pop in out of nowhere...”
At that second, someone then walked in. Lol jks, that is way too expected. Jared sat around harassing Rowan for a few hours, until finally a girl walked in.
“Piplup please,” merely stated the girl.
“Here you go, young lady” Rowan said as he gave her a Pokéball. As she was about to leave, Jared jumped forth.
“The name’s Jared,” Jared stated.
“...And I care why?” asked the girl.
“Because...we’re about to battle!” Jared replied.
“Nah, I’m good,” the girl told Jared.
“Aww come on, you don’t need to be such a ***** about it,” Jared jokingly stated.
“WHAT DID YOU JUST CALL ME!? Fine, bring it,” the girl stated.
“Wow getting you to battle was kinda...rushed. Anyway who cares, let’s go!” Jared said to transition off the next scene.
Outside the lab (since battling inside is stupid), Jared and the girl have sent out their Turtwig and Piplup.
“Alright Turtwig, let’s start things off with a Razor Leaf,” Jared stated. Turtwig then nodded as it shot a bunch of leaves towards Piplup.
“Wow, you actually did as I instructed normally. Usually when I watch Pokémon shows on TV, something always goes wrong when a new trainer orders their first Pokémon to attack. How different!” shouted Jared with glee.
“Piplup. Fury Attack to stop the leaves!” yelled the girl. As the leaves came near Piplup, it knocked them all away with its paws.
“Now follow up with a Peck!” shouted the girl.
“Turtwig, use a Rock Smash to stop it!” shouted Jared. Piplup then ran up to Turtwig and began to dive down with its beak, but Turtwig’s leg then stuck upwards and began pushing away Piplup’s beak. However, Turtwig began to wobble.
“Piplup, keep trying to peck!” shouted the girl.
“Turtwig, fire a Bullet Seed directly at it!” Jared shouted.
“Bide, Piplup!” the girl screamed
As Turtwig was holding Piplup off with its leg, it then shot a Bullet Seed from its mouth straight towards Piplup’s stomach as it made Piplup glow brighter red with each hit. After two times shooting at Piplup, it began to shoot a third bullet seed at Piplup, but instead fell to the ground upside down.
“Turtwiii----!” shouted Turtwig as it was struggling to flip.
“Now Piplup, release!” the girl stated.
“Piiii---“ said Piplup with temper, “luuuuuup!” Piplup then ran up to the flipped Turtwig and stomped it several times.
“THIS. IS. WHAT. YOU. GET. FOR. BULLET SEEDING ME!’ said Piplup. Oh btw when I want you to know what the Pokémon are saying, I’ll put it in English. That way it’s less annoying that translation brackets. Trainers and Pokémon can also understand each other somehow. Anyways, Turtwig then fainted.
“Hmph, see ya loser,” the girl stated.
“Yknow you don’t have to be so cold,” Jared yelled.
“Just leave me alone. I don’t like you, deal with it,” the girl remarked.
“Ugh fine whatever. You aren’t worth my time,” Jared yelled. However, the girl didn’t respond and merely just walked away.
“Well buddy that battle really wiped us out. Before we continue our journey, I think we should stay over at Sandgem’s Pokémon Center while you get treated, sound good?” Jared said to his Turtwig.
“Whatever, don’t really care either way,” Turtwig responded walking along with Jared. They then entered the Pokémon Center, where they saw the girl from before leaving.
“What the hell are you doing here?” Jared asked.
“Oh my god, what a shock. Two people who JUST had a Pokémon battle both appear in the only Pokémon Center in town at the same time. No waiii!!!” the girl sarcastically replied.
“Ugh what’s with you? At least you’ll be gone soon,” Jared retorted.
“Nah, I’m staying here,” the girl said.
“A girl....staying here!? In the same building as me!?” a boy said as he rushed in front of the girl.
“Excuse me miss, the name is Will. I’m in room 304, stop by later if you wanna have some fun,” Will stated.
“Not a chance,” the girl responded.
“Oh what a cold one you are. At least may I have your name? I feel like it’s being an annoyingly long time not knowing your name making everything kinda vague and hard to follow,” Will stated.
“Umm...what? We just met, are you talking on behalf of someone else or something? Anyway, since you are being incredibly creepy I’ll definitely tell you my name. The name is Madelyn, but everyone calls me Mug. And no, I was not being sarcastic there, I genuinely feel there’s no harm in you knowing my name,” stated Mug.
“So would you be MADelyn if I didn’t call you Mug?” Jared chimed in.
“...” didn’t say Will.
Suddenly, everything was quiet for about 5 seconds before Mug punched Jared in the gut. Jared then fell down as Turtwig began blankly staring at his pain.
“So...if you don’t wanna meet up in the room. You wanna meet up somewhere else? Ooh let’s hook up outside, that’ll be fun!” Will stated.
“...You two are strange. Goodbye,” Mug remarked. She then walked away.
“What a woman,” Will said awestruck.
“What...a...jerk,” Jared struggled to state.
And so, that is the beginning of the story in Sinnoh that is about to unfold. Jared and Will were brought together over Mug, and they both knew that it was not the last they were seeing of her. And definitely not each other, as little did they know, the two of them would be getting in many adventures together. Many.

“Hey, are you okay?” Will asked to the squirming Jared, lying on the floor.
“Ugh...what do you care. You’re into that sociopath,” Jared barely responded.
“Hah, that’s hilarious. Now get up,” Will said.
“I’m sorry weren’t you just creepily trying to seduce her just now?” Jared questioned as he stood up.
“Yeah but that was all an act, I just wanted to help you get rid of her,” Will answered.
“Huh? What do you mean, why do you care?” Jared questioned.
“See the thing is, while that chick is kinda cool, she was also being kind of a jerk to you. I was watching your battle against her, and all you were doing was trying to be friendly while she was brushing you off. So I gave her what she deserved, heh,” Will remarked.
“Oh cool, so what starter did you get?” Jared asked.
"Hey who says I got a starter? There’s more to Sandgem than just starters. It’s a beautiful lovely town with so much to see,” Will with a serious expression. However, he then beamed a huge smile, “nah just messing with ya, I got a Chimchar.”
“Ugh Chimchar is a terrible Pokémon, you have no taste,” Jared stated.
“Hey you take that back! Chimchar is awesome!” Will yelled.
“Nah. However, it’s funny how I end up getting a Turtwig, Mug gets a Piplup, while you get a Chimchar,” Jared said as he pet Turtwig on the head. Turtwig just kept the same blank expression.
“Yeah it’s if some external force influenced that on purpose,” Will remarked, “so where are you headed anyway?”
“Well I’m kind of planning to be a Pokémon Co-ordinator, so I want to go to Jubilife City in order to register and participate in the upcoming contest there,” Jared explained.
“Oh cool. We can travel there together since it’s also where I have to register for the Pokémon League. I’m a trainer you see,” Will stated.
“Alright. It should take us awhile though, there’s quite some distance between Sandgem and Jubilife and many wild Pokémon and trainers we’re going to encounter. I’m sure we’ll spend quite some time during this distance getting into many predicaments and learning many new things along the way,” Jared explained.
“There, all signed up,” Jared said to Will in front of a reception desk.
Chapter 2: Second Episode Introduction
“Hey, do you know when the Jubilife Contest is going to be?” Jared asked the secretary.
“Oh. I’m afraid you just missed it,” she responded.
“Really? Aww man, and now I have no clue where the next contest will be,” Jared sadly said.
“Ma’am, would you happen to know where the closest Pokémon Gym is? Oreburgh City, right?” Will asked.
“Actually Canalave City is much closer, but there is a giant block in the middle of the road leading to it, and it will only be gotten rid of sometime way later where its previous presence will not be mentioned. So I guess Oreburgh is the closest accessible city,” the secretary stated.
“Alright thanks,” Will thanked.
“Well at least you know where you’re going,” depressingly said Jared.
“Hey why don’t we travel across Sinnoh together? There are contest halls like everywhere so I’m sure it won’t be inconvenient for any of us. Besides traveling by yourself is kinda lonely, I have no clue how most do it,” Will offered.
“Sure I guess,” Jared agreed. Suddenly the corner of his eye caught something as he turned towards a TV on the top right corner of the room.
“What is it?” Will asked.
“Watch!” Jared said.
“We now return to the Jubilife contest finals, and it is time for our two competing finalists to duke it out for the ribbon,” said the announcer, Marian.
The camera then zoomed out to show the two finalists, one being Mug with a Yanma hovering in front of her.
“Hey, it appears our favourite girl is doing contests. That should give you some fun Jared,” Will snarked.
“Heh, she’s about to get what she deserves!” Jared remarked.
“What do you mean?” asked Will.
“See that other contestant over there?” Jared said as the clock began ticking down past 5:00. A Ponyta stood in front of the other contestant.
“Yeah, so? Is he good or something?” Will asked as Ponyta ran towards Yanma with a wheel of flames.
“He’s not just good; he’s one of the best. His name is Gryoine,” Jared stated. Yanma’s wings then began to flap as it put out the flames around Ponyta. The clock then struck ‘4:38’ as Gryoine’s circle bar on the TV screen lowered a bit.
“Gryoine? What kind of stupid name is that?” Will asked.
“It’s not his real name; no one knows what it is. He keeps it a secret,” Jared answered.
“Oh real mysterious,” Will sarcastically remarked, “So what’s so special about him?”
“He’s actually the winner of the Johto Grand Festival, and now he’s come to Sinnoh to participate. Mug’s a rookie, she stands no chance,” Jared laughed.
“I don’t know, Mug is pretty good...” Will said.
The clock hit ‘3:06’ (man these guys must be talking really slow), and they saw Yanma trapped in a Fire Spin as Mug’s circle bar was slowly depleting while Gryoine’s had about three quarters left. Yanma then began to fly towards the top of the fire spin, but Gryoine smirked as Ponyta bounced up and then began to fall towards Yanma. The Ponyta then smashed into Yanma midair and pushed it towards the fire spin where it was sucked in while Mug’s circle bar ran out.
“I knew it,” Jared remarked, “serves her right.” As Jared and Will began exiting, suddenly another guy ran in.
“Hey pretty thing, can I sign up?” the guy asked the secretary.
“Umm...sure. What’s your name?” the secretary asked.
“Travis Williams here. Pokémon League participants beware as I am going to beat you all!” Travis eagerly shouted.
“Heh you really think you can beat me?” Will questioned as Jared and him approached Travis.
“Yeah, I’m amazing...and you two are?” Travis asked as the secretary placed his badge case and ID on the counter.
“I’m Will from Pastoria City,” Will introduced.
“And I’m Jared fro-wait a second why do people always introduce where they’re from with their name? No one asks or cares!” Jared ranted.
“Will, since you seem nice I’m gonna warn you to save you the trouble; don’t take on the gyms. I’m just going to beat you in the Pokémon League anyways,” Travis warned.
“Firstly, there’s 256 trainers competing so there’s a small chance we are even going to battle, secondly, there’s no way you’re going to beat me,” Will responded.
“Please. I may be new but I have talent baby,” Travis stated.
“I’m also new, but my Chimchar will cream you!” Will boasted.
“You’re not going to beat me with a Chimchar, it’s a terrible Pokémon!” Travis responded.
“See? I told you!” Jared chimed.
“Anyway, our arguing is obviously setting up a Pokémon battle, so let’s just get to it already,” Will annoyingly complained.
“This battle will be a 1 v 1 battle between Will and Travis. Let the battle begin!” Jared reffed. Yo, why do Pokémon battles need refs? All they do is state the obvious. There are still refs in this universe, but we’re going to pretend they aren’t there because I’ve never understood what their purpose is.
“Chimchar, you’re up!” Will yelled. He then threw his Pokéball and with a flash of white a Chimchar popped out.
“Torchic, leeeeeeeeeeet’s go!” Travis stated. He then threw his Pokéball and a Torchic appeared. Jared then took out his Pokédex he got from registering, however due to massive amount of trainers Sinnoh gets and lack of technological resources, all Pokédexes in Sinnoh are glitched and say completely inaccurate, yet hilarious, things.
“Chimchar, the monkey Pokémon. This Pokémon is like the four hundredth monkey Pokémon, like seriously why are there so many? I mean I guess it’s a chimp and not a monkey, but aren’t they all the same?” the Pokédex analyzed.
“Torchic, the adorable Pokémon. This thing is like one of the most adorable starters ever. I mean see it, it’s sooooo cute” the Pokédex also analyzed.
“Wait, why is your starter a Torchic? Aren’t the only starters Turtwig, Piplup, and Chimchar?” Jared asked.
“Oh, I got this from the Littleroot Pokémon Lab. I got my starter there,” Travis remarked.
“So why aren’t you in the Hoenn League if you came from there?” Will asked.
“Wait...you’re telling me this isn’t Hoenn? I thought the boat was taking me to a new city!” Travis yelled.
“Wait...actually?” Jared asked.
“Nah just messing. I’m not stupid or anything, that’s incredibly one dimensional and a lazy source of comedy.” Travis remarked.
“Oh, so why aren’t you in Hoenn then?” Jared asked.
“That my friends is a story you’ll never know,” Travis responded, “anyway Torchic, start things off with a Peck!” Torchic then began to rush towards Chimchar with a glowing beak.
“Chimchar, Dig out of the way!” Will yelled. Torchic then arrived at Chimchar and as it lunged towards it, Chimchar quickly buried in a hole.
“Torchic, shoot an Ember down the hole!” Travis continued. Torchic then shot many fire sparks down the hole towards Chimchar.
“Chimchar, knock them back with a Fury Swipes!” Will yelled. Chimchar then began scratching all the embers, knocking them back towards Torchic.
“Torchic use a Quick Attack to avoid!” Travis yelled. As the embers popped out of the hole, Torchic darted out of the way.
“Chimchar, resurface!” Will yelled.
“Torchic use a Rock Smash to quickly jump off the ground!” Travis yelled. Torchic’s talons then glowed white as Torchic kicked off the ground.
“Now Quick Attack!” Travis instructed. As Chimchar resurfaced under where Torchic was, Torchic began falling quickly and slammed in to Chinchar.
“Chimchar, Low Kick it away!” Will yelled. Chimchar slid on the ground and kicked the nearby Torchic away.
“Torchic use an Ember!” Travis shouted. While Torchic was flying backwards, it shot an Ember towards Chimchar.
“Chimchar, block with Ember!” Will commanded. As the fire sparks were about to hit Chimchar, Chimchar’s mouth erupted in a blaze as it shot fire sparks creating a small explosion knocking Chimchar back. Torchic then crashed to the ground from the earlier Low Kick. The two fire starters stood up.
“CHIIIIIIIII!” Chimchar yelled as its eyes glowed red and its fire erupted in fire.
“Toooooor!” screamed Torchic as its adorable black eyes turned red and its head and beak lit on fire.
“What’s going on with those two?” Turtwig asked.
“Oh, that’s their ability known as Blaze. When they get weak, their fire attacks become powered up,” Jared explained.
“I wish I could do that,” Turtwig wished.
“You can. You have the grass ability equivalent known as Overgrow. When you become weak, your grass moves become more powerful,” Jared responded.
“Really?” Turtwig asked.
"Yeah. Here, let me show you,” Jared responded. He then kicked Turtwig and it fell to the ground. It got up and vines grew from its face and its nails turned to tree roots. The leaf on its head became a flower.
“Cool!” Turtwig shouted.
“Travis it’s time to demonstrate how awesome Chimchar is! End this with a Flame Wheel!” Will yelled. Chimchar then started running and it turned in to a massive, thick, wheel of fire.
“Torchic show that you’re much better than this terrible monkey by holding it back with an Ember!” Travis responded. As the Flame Wheel headed towards Torchic, the chicken then started shooting massive balls of fire at an incredibly rapid pace pushing the Flame Wheel back.
“Keep pushing Chimchar, you can do it!” Will cheered.
“CHIIIM...CHAR!!!!!” Chimchar yelled as the flame wheel got bigger and went faster.
“Torchic, hold it back!” Travis yelled as the fire balls got even bigger and faster. Chimchar then got closer and closer, and eventually got really close to Torchic. Torchic then shot out a fireball towards the wheel right in front of it causing a massive fiery explosion.
