Chapter One: The New TAO Trio!
"This is the grand finale, folks! Whoever wins this will be crowned the world Pokémon champion" shouted the announcer in enthusiasm. The stadium was crowded with thousands of screaming poke-maniacs and with millions more watching from home. On this battlefield stood a gorgeous yet intimidating tall, blonde woman who hails from Sinnoh and across from her stood older gentlemen with outlandish bright red and orange hair. Her name was Cynthia and his was Adler, he is currently the champion of Unova. Both of them only had one Pokémon remaining from their 6 vs. 6 battle.
"Garchomp, let's put an end to this with Draco Meteor!" commanded Cynthia.
The hammer-headed dragon let out a gigantic roar as his body lit and he launched meteorites from his mouth.
Adler pointed one finger towards the sky and as he dropped it he called out for his Volcarona
"Defend at once with Hurricane"
The moth-like creature batted her vibrant wings to stir up extreme air currents that whirled around it thus protecting herself from Garchomp's attack. Cynthia smirked and she ordered her beloved Garchomp to whip up a Sandstorm which canceled out Volcarona's ongoing Hurricane.
"I must admit Adler, that I expected such great strength from you but I never thought you'd be this powerful" Cynthia congratulated her fellow Pokémon master
"Why thank you Cynthia and you my dear may very be the greatest champion on the planet except for of course..."
"Except for who Adler, You couldn't be talking about yourself now could you?"
He chuckled. "You'll see soon enough. Volcorona, let's finish this once and for all with Fiery Dance!"
"It shall be finished, but not on your terms, Adler! Garchomp, let's end this with Giga Impact!"
Garchomp jetted off into the sky and charged downwards towards Volcorona with Giga Impact and Volcorona head upwards towards her opponent with an elegant Fiery Dance. When both of these titans clashed the entire stadium shook. As the smoke began to clear everything went black...
A young girl shrieked as the thunder roared outside her window.
"It's okay Kylie, the power just went out" said a dark-haired young man with gentle yet strong honey-colored eyes.
Kylie the teal wide-eyed, rounded-pig tailed light brunette who had practically left him deaf gave him a comforted smile "Thanks, Ian".
Thanks to the lightning the two friends were able to see one another. The lights then turned on and Kylie's mother and her Lilligant came inside her room to ask if they were alright, which they were. She also informed them that their friend Dallas couldn't make it to slumber party due to the weather.
"Oh! Luckily tomorrow is going to be a beautiful day which is perfect for all three of you to start your journey" exclaimed Kylie's mom.
Delilah as in Kylie's mother resembled Kylie to a tee minus Kylie's trendy hairstyle. She then air-kissed them goodnight as did her Lilligant. Sadly Kylie and Ian didn't get to see who won as the programming had moved on to a fashion show which featured Elesa the Nimbasa city gym leader. Elesa strutted the catwalk with a short blonde bob and her Emolga resting on her shoulder.
"I can't wait to battle her" whispered Kylie.
"I can't wait to battle her, Adler, and Cynthia!" replied Ian.
"So beautiful" Said Kylie in awe of Elesa
"Yeah, you are" mumbled Ian
"Did you say something?" asked a dazed Kylie
Ian pretended to have gone off to bed. The next morning Kylie's Rufflet alarm clock awakened them and the two headed off to Dallas' house.
"Morning y'all" said Dallas with his light green curls and bright, toothy smile
"We're taking my dad's Stoutland over to the bridge to meet Professor Juniper at her lab"
"I can't believe this is finally happening" shouted Kylie on the top of her lungs
"Sixteen whole years, at last" responded Ian
"Hey! That's seventeen for me" laughed Dallas
As the three rode Stoutland to where they would get their starter Pokémon.
"Did you catch who won the championship” asked Ian.
Dallas who was steering Stoutland looked back and said “Cynthia pulverized Adler’s Volcarona with her Garchomp’s Brick Break"
"Wow! Well we're gonna have to do really well in the Unova League to even have a chance against Cynthia" smiled Kylie at Ian.
“Actually, Cynthia’s sticking to Sinnoh meaning she let Adler keep his title here” laughed Dallas
Dallas noticed Ian blushing and made kissy faces at the two of them. Ian's whole face went red and he ordered Dallas to keep his eyes on the road. The trio looked in awe as they drew closer to the lab the saw a flock of wild Pidove fly above they and Deerling along with Patrat roaming the Nuvema's streets. "Here we are!" announced Dallas as Stoutland came to a screeching halt which knocked Kylie and Ian off.
A loud thud alerted Professor Juniper to come outside and check on what caused it.
“Oh my Arceus! You must be Ian, Kylie, and Austin” sighed Prof. Juniper in relief
“It’s Dallas not Austin” puffed Dallas
The professor apologized and invited them to come in. Ian admired all the Klink circling freely across the lab.
Juniper then presented the trio with their three lustrous pokeballs. Ian could barely contain himself and he snatched one of the pokeballs and threw it up into the air.
“Oshaaa” yawned a small white and light blue otter-like creature
“Exactly who I wanted an Oshawott” announced Ian who then went in for a hug
“Osha!” Oshawott smacked Ian with his scalchop
“Oshawott is quite the feisty one, eh” laughed Juniper half embarrassed
“That’s exactly why I love it!” smiled Ian and he rubbed his redden forehead
Oshawott was confused but then laughed as he jumped into Ian’s arms. Kylie decided to go with Tepig who blew out embers from his snout in excitement but then sneezed out smoke. Dallas went with Snivy who was less than thrilled as she crossed her arms in annoyance of everyone cheering. Juniper presented them with their pokedexes and explained their purpose.
“Before you go I must warn you” said Juniper in a serious tone...
