Chapter One: Monsters, Bandits and... Sorcery.
Here I am, fighting against Alder's grandson, Benga. It's down to our last Pokemon - my Gothorita and his Latias.
I've waited a long time for this. I want to defeat him badly! All those weeks of training and days of battling all those trainers and bosses in the Treehollow was really worth it! Hearing people at the White Forest talking about some rampaging girl with brown, small, spiky pigtails taking out all tough trainers here... that made me feel proud of myself and all.
Now I, Lyra, will finish him off and get that shiny Dratini he said for my reward of beating him. I removed my bag and set it aside, so I could move around easily. "Gothi," I called out to my Pokemon, "use your Dark Pulse attack!" I raised my left arm as I gave a confident smile to my smaller companion.
It rose up to its tiny feet. One foot on front of the other. It jumped mid-air, "Rita! Rita!" it said. The Gothic-like creature had two sets of dark-purple and blue spheres in front of it and sends them flying towards its foe.
"Hey, Latias! Dodge it," called out Benga.
His Latias was speedy and it dodged the attack a split-second before it could touch it. "Tiaaa," it exclaimed.
"Crap," I mumbled. "Gothi, now use your Future Sight!" I know this attack won't land a fail after two turns. I know it'll hit Latias if it just stay still.
"Gothori... Gothorita... Rita... Ri..." chanted Gothorita as it was sitting down, with its hands together. Its whole body glowed pink and magenta. Aurora-like rays were coming out of it. The whole room was surrounded by its force. Gentle breeze from the attack was swaying my hair.
"Hey! Heyy!! This is going to take forever!" complained Benga. "Time to use your Thunderbolt, Latias!"
"Latiii!" his Pokemon said, unleashing sparks around its body and released straight for Gothorita.
"Gothi! Use your Thunderbolt aswell to counter the attack!" The tiny Pokemon stood up and spun around whilst sparks came out of it. Its attack with Latias's Thunderbolt collided and exploded, causing a big gust of wind in the arena to appear. I tried to block the dirt off my face with my arms. Once the field was cleared, I saw the Pokemon still raring to go. "Gothi, now Thunderbolt, again!"
"Gotho Goth!" it shouted, releasing sparks again and it was too late for Latias to move away and it was a direct hit!
"Latiaaas!" the dragon and psychic type Pokemon cried out in pain.
"Latias! Hey, you're more stronger than that! Come on!" Benga called out as his Pokemon shook its body and the sparks flickered out and only left scratches on its body. Darn! This is no use! I'm just throwing an attack right after the othe-- Oh! Suddenly a big gust of wind came. Ha! Here comes Gothorita's Future Sight attack! "Latias quick, use your Psychic attack to blow the Future Sight away!" he said, totally wiping the smug look I had on my face.
No! "Gothi! Use your Dark Pulse attack on both Latias and your Future Sight attack!" I swiftly said.
"Hey! Not so fast there, Lyra!" chuckled Benga. "Latias, quick, do it now! Send Gothorita's attack right back!"
"Tias Ti!" said the eon Pokemon. Its whole body glowed pink and when the Future Sight attack was at close encounter, it released its attack and both attacks went straight to my Gothorita who was about to unleashed its Dark Pulse attack, but all three attacks hit it before it could do anything else.
"Ritaaa-aaahhh!!" it cried out. The attacks hit one another and it was so powerful that it became foggy.
"Latias, Icy Wind! Blow this fog away and finish off Gothorita!" Benga said.
"Wait, no!" I exclaimed. "Gothi! Are you all right?!"
"Goth... Goth..." it panted.
I wasn't sure if it was okay or not. I couldn't see anything in front of me except this thick, dark grey fog. Just then, Latias used Icy Wind to blow the fog away and hitting Gothorita along with it. "Gothoritaaaa!" the psychic Pokemon wailed. It suddenly zipped out of the field and crashed to the wall. Its body slid downwards to the floor with a thud. Bruises and cuts covered its tiny body. It tried to get up, but small purple auras were coming out of it like it got electrocuted. "Gotho..."
"Gothi..." I said, very worried. "Are you sure...?"
"Gothori!" it stood up with a lot of confidence.
"Great! Now--" All of a sudden, it fell face down. This time it wasn't responsive. It just laid there like it was sleeping.
"Gothi? "I called out. No answer.
"Gothi?!" I called out again. Still no response.
"Gothorita! Please, don't..." I went straight for its aid. I carried it in my arms and it fainted. It's no use continuing. "Benga, my Gothi's looks like in a pretty bad shape. We'll fight again next time when Gothi's feeling better!" I said, making my way out of the Treehollow to get to the Pokemon Centre.
"Hey, wait a second, Lyra!"
This forest was really huge. Nothing to see, but trees and more trees around me. I speedily ran towards the Pokemon Centre. "Gotho..." my Pokemon mumbled. Its voice sounded very croaky. It flopped its legs and arms like I was carrying a newborn baby. Suddenly, I felt something tingling around me. Gothorita set out tiny purple auras around us. I stopped in my tracks.
"Gothi..." I said. I carefully placed my hand over its forehead and felt a slight sting. Ouch! It's hot like I touch the flame on Charizard's tail! "G-Gothi... your forehead's really burning up! You-You've got a fever, don't you?!"
"Gotho... Ri... Ta... Ri..." it tried to mumble out.
"Dah-Don't worry! We're going to make it!" I started to run. Gosh, this whole forest is so huge... I can't make promises like this and--- Sha-ling! Sha-ling! Gothorita released more of those weird auras around us. I tried to keep going anyway. This time, I was sprinting, holding my Pokemon close.
"Gothoritaaaa!" it cried out suddenly. It released a powerful Psyshock attack around us.
"Arrrghhh!" I exclaimed in pain. I fell on my knees on the grass. I took a deep breath, trying to recover from the injury. "Gothi... what's wro--"
"Gotho!!" Then it released another attack. It engulfed me and felt like my whole body was being torn apart.
"Argh! Aaargghhh!" I screeched as I closed my eyes shut. My held my body close. I felt like I was floating... like I was in a fluffy cloud. Then I opened my eyes, seeing myself in a different path. The Pokemon Centre was right in front of me.
That was weird.
Just when I was about to take another step..... "Rita Gothi!!" my Pokemon screamed. Its voice echoed in my mind. It released its Dark Pulse attack mixed with Psyshock at the same time. The attacks encircled around me and everywhere I looked it turned into white in a second that I hugged my companion closer.
Sun rays hit my eyes and I opened them. I found myself in a very stranger place. More like a kingdom. I was sitting down against a brick wall, with my Pokemon still curled up in my arms. It wasn't responding. I slowly stood up and saw myself in a rooftop. Wow. I looked down and saw people dressed like in old China and the place, too. I need to get off here. It's a pretty big fall from up here. I know! I'll use my Altaria to-- Wait a second! Where's my bag?! I looked around and... Oh, this must be a joke! I can't believe I accidentally left my bag at the Treehollow when I was fighting Benga! Good one, Lyra! Now what am I going to do?!
"Thori..." my Pokemon mumbled. I took a glance at it, then it opened its eyes. "Rita..."
"Oh, thank goodness, Gothi... you're all right..." I said. "Do you think you can take us back to the White Forest now? So Nurse Joy can heal--"
"Gothooo!" it cried out again like last time, ignoring on what I just said. But instead of us getting hit by the Psyshock again, this time it hit against the wall I was leaning on before. It exploded into smithereens.
"Waaaagggghhhhh!!" I screamed, suddenly falling off the rooftop. I was fading to white again as I held my Pokemon closer.
Once my eyes were fully opened after I fainted, I was shocked that I was still alive from that fall. I felt pain on my knees, back and arms. I looked around the place and I saw myself resting in some hotel-like bedroom. I sat up and saw myself wearing different clothes. That's strange. Very strange. Why am I wearing this?! It's like what those people wear in some old movie! It was a red-pink long-sleeved and turtle-neck shirt and light blue baggy pants. And my hat is gone! My beautiful puffy hat... gone forever! Oh, my Arceus! A hat-less Lyra. Nooo! This can't be happening!! Hold on, where's--?!
"Oh, " I heard someone say in the doorway that totally bothered my self-argument-time, "you're finally awake, Miss." I looked up and saw a dark-purple, short and spiky haired girl walking towards the bed I was sitting on. She wore green boots, a pale-yellow baggy pants and shirt with pink on the tip of her shirt's sleeves and a purple and yellow cape behind her. She also had purple and pink wristbands on each of her wrists with blue balls with white stars on them. Her voice sounded so similar to that trainer I met when I was on a journey at Hoenn years ago.
I was supposed to be meeting up with Professor Birch to get a Mudkip from him and I met her. She was dressed up in her red, white and blue outfit with a small yellow bag around her waist. She wore a bandana around her head that covered her brown hair. Her hands were covered with white and dark-blue gloves. She was biking along on her way to Professor's lab and I just walked passed her to say hello. She wasn't much of a talker, but she was nice.
"May's the name!" I remembered her saying that to me. I told her what my name was. Pretty obvious that it was Lyra. She doesn't like Pokemon, but I know that she'll like them once she gets her own. A lot of people doesn't like them at first, they just have to get a lot of experience to raise and care for them.
We hanged out for a while before she made her way to the Professor's lab, but that's it. When it was her time to go, she left. Never saw her after that. I guess she's on her own journey now.
"Who are you? Where am I? What am I doing here? Why am I wearing these clothes? How did I get in here?" I suddenly found myself asking in a very fast pace to some girl I just met without thinking over it. "Spill yourself, now!"
"Settle down! Stop asking questions one after the other!" she said, trying to calm me down. "I can only answer one at a time."
"Why can't you answer multiple questions, then?!"
"You're acting very weird, Miss," she said, crossing her arms across her chest and leaning back on her chair. "As the Princess of Seyruun, you should behave more better than that or you'll be punished!"
Puh-Princess?! She's got to be pulling my ponytail..... "Princess?! Really?!" I scoffed. "You look nothing like a Princess to me..."
"I'm sorry. What--?!"
We were just like that for a while. She was staring at me like I was a very-hard to read puzzle. I was just looking at her with my normal look. The look on her blue eyes made me feel... very awkward. Like she had an ability of using Intimidate.
"Are we just going to have this staring contest all night or what?" I asked, breaking the silence.
"Humph," she mumbled. "Why don't you believe that I'm a Princess?!"
"You don't dress like one, first of all. Secondly, you don't sound or even act like one... Oh, wait, that's three things. So there's three things you should be working on!" I said, proudly.
"Ah, be quiet! I'm the Princess of Seyruun and that's that!"
"Okay then, girly..." I sighed. "I'll pretend you're a Princess and I'm a Pokemon Master! All right?!"
"Pokemon Master... What's that...?" she wondered, tilting her head.
"You haven't--?!" Oh. "Well, it's a world filled with catchable creatures and monsters..."
"Monsters? There's monsters here, too, but some take forms like humans. Like Mister Xellos for instance."
"That's different. What I mean is... have you seen my Gothorita?"
"You mean that thing with you? Yeah, it's resting on the other room."
"Thank goodness..." I said calmly, laying back down on the bed, then looking at her again. "So, what's your name? You never told me."
"Princess Amelia Wil Tesla Seyruun!" she said proudly, with her arm over her chest whilst standing up. "Champion of Justice!"
"Champion of Justice...?"
"Well, not quite... Well, I'm working on it..." She scratched her head, looking at me. "So, what do they call you?"
"Huh? They call me... I mean, my name is Lyra."
"Lyra. That's a pretty name," she said. "Miss Lyra."
"Tell me something, Miss Lyra..." said Amelia, sitting down on the bed.
I sat up a second later. "What is it?" I wondered.
"You destroyed the other side of my castle!"
"What?! What do you mean destroyed?!"
"You know what I mean!"
"Wait..." I had to say. I wasn't sure what she was talking about... Unless she meant the building that my Gothorita blew up before... "Do you mean that building?"
"Yes. That was a part of my castle and you blew it up! Are you some kind of evil sorceress like Miss Lina Inverse?!" she exclaimed. She moved in closer to my face and looked at me straight in the eyes.
"I-I-I don't na-know that you're talking about, Amelia!"
"Wait, don't tell me... You're her older sister, right?!"
"Who's older sister?!" What is she babbling about?! I have no other siblings! "You mean, you think I'm related to that Missyna Invurz you're talking about?!" I exclaimed right back at her. "I have no idea who that person is. Plus, I'm not sorceress either!" I leaned back against the wall, crossing my arms. "Back in my world, there's no such things as vampires, sorcerers, witches... or monsters that look like humans for that matter..."
Amelia then moved back, with her hand near her mouth. "Oh," she whispered. "I'm sorry..." she cried. "It's just... Miss Lina told me once before that she got an older sister that she's really afraid of. She would rather face the Dark Lords without her powers than to face her sister with all her powers."
"Wow. She does sound scary!"
"Yeah, she is..." she looked at me, with tears running down her cheeks.
"Wait, how come you're crying?" I asked, then crawling to her to give her a hug. "Something I said?"
"N-No..." she mumbled. "It's just-- I really miss Miss Lina... I haven't seen her or any of my other friends for a while now..."
"I'm sorry." That was all I could say. I wasn't sure what else to say because I don't know who this Miss Lina she kept talking about. She sounds like a really good person to her. I wonder what she looked like...? She must really pretty and stronger and all... She probably has long blonde hair... Strong thighs... Has a soothing sound in her voice-- Hold on! What the hell am I thinking about?! My face suddenly turned bright red. I covered my face with one hand before Amelia could see.
She turned to face me. "Something in your mind, Miss Lyra?"
"Nuh-No. Not at all..." I mumbled, trying to keep calm. "It's just... I want to know what this Miss Lina person looks like that you keep talking about..."
"Oh? Well... she uhh..." she trailed off. Her face went slight pink. "Well, she's not actually the fairest of them all... or however you should say it. Her hair is long, silky and red-orange... her temper is pretty bad..."
"Sounds like my thing to stay away from, then," I said... visualizing a girl that Amelia described. Hot temper... it'll be like a Charizard on a rampage! "Do you have a photo of her?"
"Huh? What do you mean?" she asked, completely lost.
"You know, camera? Snap-snap?" I said that while snapping an imaginary camera in front of me.
"No. I never heard of this keh-meh-ruh. Oh! Chimera? Is that what you're talking about?"
"Chimera? No!" I sighed. "This." I pulled out a small photo of me and my mom from my pocket. I was doing the peace sign and she was holding me tight, smiling.
"Wow, there's two of you?!" Amelia asked. "You have a twin?!"
"What?! No! That's me and my mom!" I said, then grabbing my PokeGear from my pocket. It was the latest version. Not much was changed except that it had three cameras on it and its an instant camera. It prints out the image it had taken once you snap the image instantly. "Want to see how it works?"
I then sat beside Amelia, holding her close. I went and reached for the big button on the touch screen of my PokeGear to snap a photo. "Perfect."
Two pieces of paper printed out of the side of my PokeGear and Amelia eagerly took them. "Wow," she said, "is this really me in this piece of paper? It's neat."
"Everything is neat where I came from."
"I almost forgot, Miss Lyra. I have a meeting with my daddy for a few minutes. I have to leave you for now, alright?"
"Oh, okay then," I said.
"Your... companion can come with you. I think its awake now. The room its staying at is just next door to this one."
"That's great then and I'll be fine." I said, getting up from the bed. "I probably should try to get home now. Who knows what'll happen my other Pokemon..."
"Alright... It was nice meeting you..."
"You too and make sure you keep that photo safe."
We then both walked out of the bedroom. Amaid walked by and gave me my clothing. I put them on inside the room of where my Gothorita was and the maid took the unusual clothes I was wearing before. I then made my way to the bed that was my Gothorita was laying on. Its eyes were coming to and I was delighted to see it was okay. "Gothi... You're okay!" I said.
"Gothori..." it mumbled. It seemed to be worn out still, but I think we can go home at this rate.
"Let's go back home."
When we walked out of the palace or mansion... whatever it was... I went and carried my Gothorita in my arms so it won't get lost. I kept walking and all I see were people about and horses and carriages. There's not much things here looked good to even buy. Besides, the currency here might be different from PokeDollars.
After a while, I made it to a forest. Huh. It looked similar to the White Forest, except it was narrower. Either that or I'm feeling claustrophobic. Then I heard something rustling behind me. I turned around and saw a couple of bandits. All male. There were four of them and the surrounded me in a flash. Great. What do they want? Does it look like I carry gold? Does it even look like I'm carrying anything with me? It's just me and my Gothorita. "Wow, she looks perfect to sell, boss, should we take her?" one of them said.
"No, not yet," said the biggest one. He's probably the leader of the pack. "Listen girl. You dress very different from us, we could sell you to collect a thousand gold coins or maybe three..."
"Heeheehee..." the other two said.
"Maybe in your dreams, idiots," I said, trying to keep my cool. "I've beaten a lot of trainers for weeks and I can deal with you weaklings!"
"What does she mean?"
"Eh, either way... we're still going to sell you!" The boss said.
"No way! Gothi, use your Thunderbolt on these thugs!"
I threw my Pokemon and it somersaulted in mid-air and landed safely on its feet. "Gothori!" it said. Yellow and orange sparks came out of it and went straight for all four bandits.
"Awh, yeah! I still got it!" I said, proudly, with my hand over my biceps. Then I felt something grabbing on my legs and I slipped, landing on my side. "Ouch!" I looked up and saw the leader, holding my leg and dragged me close to him, even though he was still on the ground.
"I'll make you pay, you twit! Fireball!" he said.
"N-No! Wait a second! Hold on! I'm no sorceress-- aghh!!"
