Hello and welcome to my second fan Fic! My first, The Galactic Files, has just ended, so there is no better time to start another. This will stay within the G to PG-13 realm. Before I begin, there are some people and their fics that I have to credit for this.
This story should remain about PG, but maybe make its way to PG-13 closer to the end. Anyway and without further adieu, here is Maelstrom!
A New Journey!
Dave walked into his auditorium in his new Trainer Hangout on top of Mt. Chimney. The volcano had gone through a lot in the past five months, which was exactly what he was there to speak about. Finally, Dave stepped up to the microphone. He hesitated, collecting his thoughts. The events he saw were still heavy on his mind and hard to get out of his throat.
"Welcome and thanks to all of you who could come here on our opening night. You have heard from many people what happened to us in Hoenn a few months ago. You heard of a man named Glover who saved the people of Mauville in the concentration camp there. There was also the tale of the mighty Firebrand who burned through the Northeast part of the main island. And finally, Professor Xander and I, along with a few other members of the Journeymen League, were calming the seas. This, this is my tale."
I was traveling throughout Hoenn, and my latest camp was right here actually. I would stay somewhere until I got defeated by someone. After that I would move on. This was my second camp. My first location had been Meteor Falls, where Steven had beaten my Espeon
Anyway, a girl named Mandy was intent on beating Speedy and I. It was our second battle and my Blaziken was running circles around her Ursaring. It was powerful, but mine was more so. Finally Speedy put an end to the battle with a quick Hi Jump Kick to the gut. The bear flew back and was promptly returned to her Pokeball.
“Dave, I know that our agreement was that if I won you’d come back, but you really need to stop fighting!” Mandy said, trying to convince me on a premise that did not have any ground at the moment. She and I argued for a few minutes as I pat Speedy on the head for a job well-done. Xander barged in at that time and demanded a battle with Speedy and me. I agreed.
We took our sides with Mandy watching, probably hoping I would lose. Xander used his green Salamence he walked up with and I used Speedy.
"Speedy, use Acrobatics!"
"Salamence, dodge and use Dragon Dance!"
The Salamence jumped from the ground and began to fly. Xander had a smirk on his face as Speedy narrowly missed the dragon as it took off. The green Pokemon began a remarkable dance through the air while Speedy, angered by his missed hit, gave a brilliant red glow I had seen many times before. He was about to get fast. Before I could issue a command the fowl leapt from the ground and quickly hit Salamence in an aerial attack. Speedy hit the ground on his legs but the dragon was not nearly as lucky. He barely got up after one hit.
"Salamence, use Earthquake."
Xander's Pokemon took to the air again and got right over mine. As it fell Speedy raised his hand and a protective orb sprung up. Speedy began to glow again and shot forward, delivering a kick to the head. Mandy declared Salamence unconscious.
"Well, I win again. Come back tomorrow and we can battle again." I said as I walked to my campsite and went to find a potion.
"No, no, no, you're coming with me regardless of what you say." the Professor said.
"Xander, please don't do anything illegal." Mandy pleaded.
"I don't plan to, but Birch just had to see what an incredible Blaziken you have." That caught my attention.
"Oh, oh yeah!" Mandy said, "Sorry Dave, I guess I forgot that part."
I walk towards the other two. "Well, in that case why don't I humor you two and Birch."
"Great!" Xander exclaimed, "So we'll leave as soon as possible. Just follow me."
It took me a couple of minuted to take down my tent and fold it all somehow in my bag, and I then went and stood with the other two. Mandy let out a Pidgeot and I sent out Cuddles, a Togekiss that I received from a trader. The other two looked impressed, until Xander showed me up and called out a Latias, which was golden.
"Where did you get all of those shiny Pokemon!?" I questioned. He did not seem to hear me so I let it go.
"If everyone's ready." Xander said as he jumped on the golden Latias. Mandy and I got on ours and we headed off.
"So now you know how Speedy is so fast." One day later I was caught up, and was getting Birch's and Xander's benediction on how to deal with my Blaziken's uniqueness.
"Yeah, and I'll quit using him so much."
"Thanks for volunteering that."
"Well I won't get much of a chance I guess. I'm going on a little retreat to the wilder parts of Hoenn. It was time I moved on anyway." After shaking hands with the duo of professors I left the room. Mandy was there to greet me.
"So do you want to travel together? I'm going to be leaving for the Dewford area tomorrow."
"Oh, I guess. It would be nice to have someone to train with so Speedy doesn't get too far behind everyone else." The two of us leave call out Cuddles and Pidgeot and leave for Dewford. Little did I know this was going to be my final time to be dry for a while.
