Ok chapter 2 is a little bit shippy but it does introduce 2 characters that will play a greater role later on and Happy Valentine's Day!
Route 1 and Route 22 captures for all
On their way through route 1 the brothers heard a loud growl that put them on edge.
“W-What was that?” Forest said scared.
“Just my stomach you wimp,” teased Thunder “I’m starved who brought the lunch?”
And with that Thunder looked at Sky, Sky looked at Forest, Forest looked at Shadow and Shadow looked at Thunder until they realized they forgot their lunch.
As Shadow and Thunder sat near some rocks Forest and Sky went to find some food but when they were 5m away from the rocks 2 Pokémon attacked them a Small bird Pokémon with tan and cream feathers and a purple quadruped Pokémon with a cream colored stomach and face area with a long curly tail and long whiskers. When they saw these two Pokémon Forest and Sky got their Pokédexes out and scanned them.
In an electronic voice the Pokédex said “Pidgey the Tiny Bird Pokémon. A common sight in forests and woods. It flaps its wings at ground level to kick up blinding sand. Rattata the Mouse Pokémon. Bites anything when it attacks. Small and very quick, it is a common sight in many places.”
“Ok I’ll catch Rattata” exclaimed Forest.
“I’ll catch Pidgey then” stated Sky. “LETS GO SQUIRTLE!” yelled Sky as his light blue biped Pokémon with a tail similar to a squirrels and a tan shell with a cream under belly merged from the poke ball.
“OK BULBASAUR BATTLE” yelled Forest has his green quadruped Pokémon with a bulb on its back appeared in front of him. “Ok Bulbasaur leech seed on Rattata go” this was obliged by Bulbasaur shooting a seed from the top of the bulb on its back towards Rattata which tried to avoid but was hit on the side as vines wrapped around it and glowed red absorbing its energy.
“Ok Squirtle Bubble on Pidgey now” calmly said Sky as Squirtle let loose a barrage of bubbles aiming at Pidgey to which Pidgey responded with a sand attack blocking the bubbles.
“TACKLE RATTATA NOW BULBASAUR!” yelled Forest to which his Pokémon charged at the Rattata only to have countered with tackle until Rattata glowed red draining some of its energy causing it to collapse tired and worn out.
“Squirtle tackle and bubble” said Sky still calm although his Pokémon was dodging endless tackles. As Pidgey tried to evade bubble it was hit from the side by tackle sending it flying into a tree. “Now Squirtle hit it with bubble” as Squirtle shot another barrage of bubbles at Pidgey which connected this time leaving Pidgey breathless.
“LETS GO POKE BALL!” shouted Forest and Sky at the same time as they threw a poke ball at the respective Pokémon they were trying to catch and as Bulbasaur and Squirtle eyed down the poke ball waiting to confirm the capture the poke balls clicked signaling the capture of the two Pokémon. But they realized they needed to get some food! They continued on their way until they came across an apple tree.
“Come on Sky pick some apples and take them back to the others” said Forest who was already picking some apples
“OK Forest then we can get back on the road” stated Sky. After they had picked some apples and carried them back to the others they all had a feast with their Pokémon well minus Pidgey and Rattata because Forest and Sky wanted to keep those two as secret as possible. After they got back on the road and neared Viridian city they saw two young trainers’ one boy and one girl leaving Viridian city.
“Hello” said Thunder when he saw them
“Hello” replied the two trainers’ “who may you be?” Before Thunder could reply Forest spoke and told them their names and asked them theirs.
The boy replied “I’m Red” Red wore Black red and white shoes, a red and white hat black wrist cuffs, a black tee shirt, a red vest with a white collar and white stripe down the middle, blue jeans and a yellow backpack. Red had red eyes and brown hair.
“And I’m Leaf” said the girl. Leaf had Green eyes and brown hair and she wore: a blue tank top, long blue sock, white and pink shoes, a red mini skirt, a white and pink hat and a yellow QVC.
Leaf then gave Red a peck on the lips which made Red blush madly.
“What was that for?” Red finally managed to say.
“Come on dopey work it out” Was all Leaf could say
Red finally after 20 minutes cracked it “Its Valentine’s day!” he gasped and quickly ran to the Viridian flower shop.
“We’ll go and help him” said Forest and Sky at the same time shocking them.
“Shadow Thunder you two go to route 22 and see if there are any good Pokémon there. And with that the Shadow and Thunder left for route 22.
With Shadow and ThunderWhile Shadow and Thunder were on route 22 they encountered two Pokémon
“OK Shadow you battle the monkey I’m going to the bird” Thunder said to his older brother.
(Two Pokédex entries later)
“Ok. Let’s go Eevee!” Shadow says excitedly as his Pokémon emerged in front of him and started circling Mankey
“LET’S GO PIKACHU!” yelled Thunder as his yellow mouse with brown stripes, black ear tips, brown on its tail, a thunder bolt shaped tail and red circles on its cheeks appeared behind Spearow. “Pikachu use thunder shock on Spearow” said Thunder and this was obliged by Spearow getting hit by a jolt of electricity making it fall to the ground.
“Eevee dodge scratch and tackle Mankey” said Shadow frantically as Eevee had taken 3 scratches after a leer leaving it very weak but Eevee had managed to land a few tackles that left Mankey weak leaving only one thing to do.
“GO POKE BALL!” yelled Shadow and Thunder at exactly the same time as they threw the poke balls hitting their mark. After three shakes the Pokémon were caught and they went to the Pokémon center to heal their Pokémon.
With Red, Forest and Sky
Red was on his way to the Pokémon center after Forest and Sky helped him pick some flowers and chocolates for Leaf. When they got back to the Pokémon center they saw Shadow and Thunder getting their Pokémon healed.
“Hey you two catch any good Pokémon?” asked Sky and Forest
“Yeah I caught Spearow and Shadow caught Mankey” said Thunder while Shadow face palmed himself.
“You weren’t meant to tell them” groaned Shadow
“You said not to tell anyone I don’t trust so I told the two people I knew I could trust” Thunder said in his defense.
Just before a fight broke out Red came by and said
“I can’t find Leaf anywhere”
While the others looked worried Sky remained calm
“Red can I see your Pokégear?” asked Sky
“Sure” said Red as he gave Sky his Pokégear. After about 2 minutes of work Sky finished and told Red to call Leaf
“Ok what did you do Sky?” everyone asked as they glared at him.
“I just made it so Red can find Leaf easier” exclaimed a frightened Sky.
“Great thanks Sky” said Red as he was leaving in search of Leaf Red bumped into a group of 4 thugs
“Watch where you’re going” said one of the thugs presumably the leader “And to teach you that lesson were going to pound you to a pulp” As his fist got closer to Red’s face and Red prepared for a broken nose he heard the thug scream in pain as Shadow blocked the punch and threw the thug on to the floor.
“RUN RED!” yelled Shadow as the thug got up Red bolted out the door.
“Heh saving your friend was pointless” said the thug “now we got to beat you 4 on 1.”
“Oh we beg to differ” calmly said 3 voices behind Shadow as they rushed forward and punched the other 3 thugs in the face.
“Who are you three?” asked the thug shocked at the speed they ran at.
“We are your worst nightmare” exclaimed the four brothers as they leaped over the thug and landed out the door.
“GET THEM!” yelled the leader of the thugs and all of the thugs dashed out the door.
[CENTER]With Red[/CENTER]When running away from the thugs and looking for Leaf Red tripped over twice almost ran into a tree and almost broke his leg which is not normal for the boy that climbed Mt Ember when he was 8 and saw the Legendary bird Moltres. Finally Red found Leaf in a grove next to a lake. Instead of saying hello Red threw the flowers above her head so they landed at her feet. Leaf suddenly aware of another presence when she saw Red ran towards him and hugged him. Red blushed madly and hugged her back not wanting it to end but managed to find the will to end it and give her the chocolates.
“Happy Valentine’s day…Feuille Vert” Was the only thing Red managed to say while he was as red as a tomato.
“You too Rouge Flamme” replied Leaf using Red’s real name. Just as they were about to kiss they heard an explosion coming from the city and they ran off to investigate.
With Shadow, Forest, Sky and Thunder
“KOFFING TACKLE” yelled one of the thugs which was responded by a floating ball charging at its opponents
“WEEDLE POISON STING” yelled another which was responded by a small caterpillar shooting a barrage of poisonous needles at its opponents
“EKANS WRAP” Yelled the second in command which was responded by a snake shooting itself forward at high speeds at its targets
“SLUDGE BOMB GRIMER” Yelled the leader which was obliged with a being made out of sludge launching highly explosive sludge at its opposition
“PIDGEY USE SAND ATTACK TO BLIND KOFFING AND EKANS” yelled Sky to his Pidgey which flapped its wings kicking up sand blinding the two poison types.
“Spearow Dodge poison sting and use peck on Weedle” said Thunder calmly knowing a flying attack is super effective against a bug type like Weedle.
“Mankey use leer and scratch on Koffing” which Mankey obliged to by jumping at Koffing and hitting it with a very sharp claws.
“Rattata tackle Grimer” as Rattata was about to tackle Grimer it was hit by sludge bomb knocking it out. “Rattata return” said Forest depressed. Just as Forest was going to send out Bulbasaur a voice said
“Charmander ember on all the poison types go” which was obliged by a bunch of little orbs hitting all the poison types knocking them out. As the brothers looked to see who had knocked out all the poison types in one blow it turned out to be none other than Red! As the thugs turned and ran away with their tails between their legs and Red, Leaf and the four brothers went to the Pokémon center for a night and to rest their badly damaged Pokémon. During their dinner the brothers compared stories while Red and Leaf went to a Valentine’s disco at a friend’s house.
