It all happened in a flash. I was strolling through the grass and ambushed by some 10 year old. She threw a round device at my horn, and let me tell you, it hurt. A LOT. I'm talking kicked in the genitals kind of pain. Anyway, it was half red and half white, and on contact it opened up and sucked me in. Next thing you know, I'm in some sort of prison for who knows how long. I could hear her out there, "OMG, yesh, I got my Absol!" Pitiful. I'm in the hands of some torturous freak. She puts me in a prison and she's a happy camper. It felt like days passed before I was taken out again...
~10 Minutes Later
I'm out again! I'm in some sort of room. It must be the girl's... Oh my Arceus, there's posters everywhere of some boy bands. HELP. Wait, I'm not alone. There's other Pokémon here, about three others. I must speak to them at once! "Hello there, I am Omen. You guys?" I await for their responses, but they seem just as ticked, except for one of them, a Leafeon. "Why hello to you, I'm Ashley Williams. It's nice to meet you, Omen."
After her introduction the others began to step up as well. "Since we're together, I might as well tell you. I'm Cassidy, but you should call me Captain, alright?" He was a rather chunky Delibird, but he meant business. I looked over at the peculiar Lilligant with a black flower. "I'm Venus. That's all you'll need to know." She gave me a cold stare through her glasses and began to hum a tune. I knew that I should leave that one alone. Cassidy then came up to me, "Psst. Ay, I got a small idea here. I know a way we can ditch the girl, and run all the way to Lentimas where she will never find us. If you want that to happen we have to work as a team. That means you have to follow the Captain's orders, alright?" I don't know why he was pressuring me, but I nodded. The 10 year old then burst into the room, screeching, I mean singing, some horrid boy band song. I looked over to Cassidy. He is going to be my savior.
"Dun, dun-dun, that's what makes you beautiful!" The girl was continuing with her screeching. The plans had to be implemented now. It was rather simple. Cassidy claimed that his sack had anything and everything that he will ever need. He happened to have rope and we were going to tie up the girl, after she was knocked out of course. Ashley's role was to distract with cuteness, when Venus would step up and knock her out with some Sleep Powder. All Cassidy had to do was tie her up and send her back to the gate. I didn't care about what had to be done, I don't want to be near this girl. The horrid things that will come if I stay with her. Ooh! That was a shiver down my spine. Oh look. They already dragged the girl to the gate. Step 1: Done. I had to say something for their work so, "Good work team!" was what I managed to say. I'm so nice.
We're passing by Route 20 when some crazy, red-headed, old guy bellowed out some kind of laugh and jumped off a cliff. Lucky for him, he only left with broken legs. It was a sight to see, but hearing the snaps of his bones were unbearable. Now, to move on. We skip the town, there is no time for sight seeing. We need some distance, the girl will definitely come after us. We will only feel safe once we reach Lentimas, and maybe change our names, if that helps. We're walking... and walking... and... BAM! We're already in the Virbank Complex. That was easy.
We thought we had some distance between us and the girl, so we took this chance to wind down. Next thing you know, some rocker chick walked into the scene. She stopped and began to play in the center of the complex. Why? She began her own screeching, much louder than the girl's screeching that we're running away from. "P-O-K-É-M-ON. POKÉMON!"
I had to admit, it was quite catchy. Not only for me, but for about a ton of Magnemite as well. They seemed to go into over drive from the music
and started sending shocks everywhere. What a mess they made. The rocker chick ended up running away, her hair blackened from electrocution and her mind sent into a fritz. The Magnemite were content, but then they noticed us. Crap. None of us could really do much and we just lost. Every single one of us fainted. We did put up a fight, but to be fair, there was a load of Magnemite! What else could we do? Next time I woke up we were still in the Complex, unmoved from our spots. Nice of those creepy, shady guys hiding in alleys to help us...
We had to press onward. I could feel it in my
horn that there was impending danger. It must have been the girl. It couldn't be anything else, other than a disaster, but I'm sure it was her! Cassidy turn to the group, "Listen fellas, that scuffle back there was nothin'. Don't doubt the Captain, I still gots my plan. Now we're going to get up and sneak into the ferry to Castelia, got it?" Everyone nodded in agreement. We caught the next ferry and set sail.
"Wow, this place is amazing!" That was from Ashley. She really liked the city. Venus was still in her own world, she was thinking. Occasionally I would hear her humming. It was cute at first, key word being was
. I'm slightly irritated now, but no matter. We're in Castelia City! I had to beg, "I want a Castelia Cone!" Hey, I heard they were delicious. "Can we get some?" Of course, Cassidy wasn't too happy with the idea. "Do ya want to be with the girl, or do you wanna be free?" I had to have a cone so... "Why can't we run from the girl and
have a cone?" That prompted Cassidy to slap me. "We gotta run ya big goof, now move those paws of yours!"
I remained quiet the rest of the way. We passed by the stand selling the Castelia Cones. I think Cassidy brought me this way on purpose. What a bastard. We got to the gate just before the desert, Cassidy turned to the group. "Okay, the desert is going to be harsh. There is a constant sandstorm going on, ya know? Lucky for you, the Captain is always prepared. Here, I got goggles for you all... and a surprise. On our way here I swiped a few cones. Enjoy." I take back the bastard comment. I got a cone! Now, how do I eat it? Darn it! If only I was bipedal and had thumbs. I had to settle with eating it off the ground. Everyone else seemed to enjoy the cones. I think we're a pretty close team now.
We're strolling through the desert when suddenly we are blocked by a barricade of Crustle. What is with this mass of Pokémon all of a sudden? I've had enough by now, so I stepped up and took a risk. I sung my Perish Song. Oh yes, I hit every single one of them spot on! Then, I had to wait... which took a while. Sure enough, they all fainted! As well as my comrades. I forgot that it effects them. Whoops. I had to wait for them to gain consciousness, Cassidy was the first to wake. "Say, what's the big idea knocking us all out? Couldn't you atleast do something like this with the Magnemite?! I'm stuck with an idiot!" The others woke up after that blow out. Nothing else important happened after that, so onwards to Nimbasa City!
In my opinion, this city was much better than the last. There were rides and attractions! Let me tell you, there was one big attraction there, and her name was Elesa. Oh my Arceus, she was such a beauty. I got this weird feeling around her, like I heard... music. It went, "Are you ready?" at first and then there was a screeching, "Give me what I neeeeee-ee-ee-ee-eed!" I don't know what she meant by that, but alrighty then. Ashley and Venus have been awfully quiet on this journey. I think I should talk to them.
"Hey Venus, and Ashley, how are you guys keeping up?" Venus gave me a cold stare, again. What is up with this one? It looked like she thought about what she was saying, and carefully answered, "Fine". She looked away and began humming. Guess I won't bother with her again. Ashley then looked at me to give her response, "I'm doing fine as well, actually. It's been pretty fun with you guys, but I want to know something. Why do we have to run all the way to Lentimas? Isn't Nimbasa enough?" She raised a good point. I was going to agree before Cassidy interjected. "Cause I'm the Captain and I said so! Now get a move on."
We passed Driftveil City and went through Chargestone Cave. That wasn't fun. All those Joltiks... I hate bugs! Atleast we made it to Mistralton. Cassidy, who is obviously the leader of this operation, turn to the rest of the group. "Alright guys, I know a gal here. She run's an air line business, and that happens to be just what we needed to get to Lentimas." I was quite shocked to realize that we actually made it this far. I mean, look at our team, we're just a group of weirdos. We don't fit, yet somehow we were able to make it here. Cue the corny memories montage. Okay, done. Now back to the journey. We went up to the runway where a girl in a pilot's uniform was standing in front of the plane. Cassidy was the one to approach.
"Ay, Skyla, remember me? I'm the one who had a thing with that Swanna of yours. Now, onto business. I need you to take me and my crew to Lentimas. I have an offer prepared. I'll give you this rare Master Ball here for the trip. What do ya say?" I don't know what's so special about that ball, but the girl, Skyla, surely was surprised. "Oh my gosh, it's you again! You got a Master Ball? Oh my gosh! No way! You're such a cute birdie! What a cute squishy belly! I have to go now, thanks for the ball."
... She didn't understand anything he said. She just took the ball and left. "Uhh, that was Plan A. I have a back-up, I always do! That ball was fake anyway, painted by yours truly. Now, we have to get on that plane, it's setting off... now!" We all scurried and jumped in with the cargo. To Lentimas we go!
The place was deserted. Why would anyone want to be here? Our reason was to escape the girl... but isn't this too much? No matter, we're safe and away from her. I finally decide to speak to the group and said, "Thank you guys for helping me escape from that crazy girl, but now we're in a desert town. What fun is there in that?" Cassidy was grinning to himself... It was rather weird. "I brought you guys here as help! Which wasn't much at all... but on our travels I stole all sorts of red shards! I can now learn moves!" If I recall corectly, he only accepts blue shards. I had to break it to Captain. "Umm, they only accept blue shards here, Captain."
An anticlimactic ending for a crappy story... Brilliant!
